171 Department of External Affairs to Australian Delegation, United Nations

Cablegram 125 CANBFRRA, 1 March 1948, 11.10 a.m.


The Commonwealth Relations Office has approached us on the semi
permanent headquarters for E.C.A.F.E. If the matter is raised in
the current session of the Economic and Social Council you should
support any United Kingdom motion seeking deferment until after
the E.C.A.F.E. has made a recommendation.

If this is defeated, support Singapore. [1]

1 The matter was not raised until the 3rd session of ECAFE in June
1948 when the Commission decided to retain the temporary
headquarters in Shanghai until a permanent site was determined.
