Representation on the Committee on Information from Non-Self-Governing Territories

745. Representation on the Committee on Information from Non-Self-Governing Territories

The General Assembly, Noting that the work of the Committee on Information from Non-Self -Governing Territories, particularly in relation to the special studies of certain functional fields initiated under General Assembly resolution 333 (IV) of 2 December 1949, has been materially assisted by the action of States members of the Committee, including certain non-administering Members, in associating with their delegations persons with special qualifications in the functional fields studied by the Committee, Considering that this is a practice which might be extended with advantage to the work of the Committee, in that the pooling and exchange of knowledge and experience thus achieved will enable it more efficaciously to assess the economic, social and educational problems of Non-Self-Governing Territories in the light of the solutions being found to those problems elsewhere in the world,

1. Commends the action of those Members which have included specialist advisers in their delegations to the Committee;

2. Expresses the hope that those Members which have not hitherto found it possible to do so, will find it appropriate to associate with their delegations persons specially qualified in the functional fields within the Committee's purview.
