Dates of existence



The AC/36(M) chronological series contains the records of the Expert Working Group on Manpower. The Expert Working Group on Manpower had been part of the Working Group on Labour Mobility(1) since January 1953, so its documents were originally incorporated into the AC/36 document series. It was only after mid-January 1955 that the two entities were clearly differentiated by separating their documents. The documents of the Expert Working Group on Manpower were given the reference AC/36(M). On 2 May 1956, the Senior Civil Emergency Planning Committee (SCEPC) informed the Council of its decision to rename the Expert Working Group on Manpower the "Manpower Planning Committee" (see AC/36(M)-D/14) without changing its responsibilities The Working Group co-operated closely and regularly exchanged reports with the SCEPC. The Working Group’s task was to examine the problems associated with calling up reservists in a crisis, the issue of scientific manpower and the registration of critical medical staff. The Working Group continued its work after 1964.
