The AC/33 chronological series contains the records of the Working Group on the Provisional Agenda for the Meeting of the Council and the Standing Group. The Working Group was created by the North Atlantic Council on 8 October 1952, by asking the Standing Group Liaison Officer to arrange a meeting with all delegations to prepare an agenda for the upcoming meeting of the Council and the Standing Group (C-R(52)24). The only meeting held by the Working Group took place on 13 October 1952. It was chaired by the Standing Group Liaison Officer and attended by representatives from, at least, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Greece, the Netherlands, Turkey and the United Kingdom. During the meetings, the national representatives presented a variety of questions which they would like to see raised during the meetings with the Standing Group. In the end no firm agenda was decided upon, as it was felt that many of the delegation’s points would be addressed during the Standing Group’s presentation and that in order to allow a free exchange of views the questions prepared in advance should not be too many or too specific in nature.
