Conference of Plenipotentiaries on the Status of Refugees and Stateless Persons: Draft Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. Style Committee: Matters to be Drawn to the Attention of the Style Committee. Note by the Secretariat
Section A, paragraph (1)
The attention of the Style Committee is drawn to the phrase reading in English: "Decisions as to eligibility" and in French "Les décisions d'éigibilité" at the beginning of the second sub-paragraph. The view expressed in the Conference that this might be redrafted by the Committee.
The attention of the Committee is drawn to the amendment presented by the United Kingdom representative (A/CONF.2/27) which was not voted upon by the Conference, but which it was thought might be redrafted by the Committee.
See note in Document A/CONG.2/AC.1/R.1
The attention of the Committee is drawn to the fact that sub-paragraphs (b) and (c) were adopted in French. The English text is a translation made by the Secretariat.
The Style Committee may bear in mind the suggestion that Section F be placed immediately after Section A.
Attention is drawn to the phrase reading in French: "s'ils acceptent cette extension en ce qui les concerne" and in English: "whether they accept that extension as far as it concerns them" which may require redrafting.
