the UN General Assembly

6 (I). United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA)

The General Assembly, impressed with the imperative urgency that action to facilitate the final stages of the work of UNRRA be taken at the earliest possible date in view of the understanding of the Council of UNRRA that the work of that organization will be completed in Europe by 31 December 1946, and in the Far East by March 1947:

1. Establishes a Committee,

(a) to consult with States signatory to the UNRRA agreement which have not made or arranged to make the further contributions to UNRRA recommended in Council resolution No. 80 of August 1945, and to urge upon them that they make such contributions with the least possible delay;
(b) to urge upon Members of the United Nations who are not signatories to the UNRRA agreement to join that organization and thereby to make their contributions to this great humanitarian task.

2. Appoints as members of this Committee the representatives of the following countries: Canada, China, Dominican Republic, France, Greece, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, United Kingdom, United States of America, and instructs the Committee to begin its work as soon as possible.

3. Instructs the Secretary-General to seek to make arrangements with the Director-General of UNRRA whereby the General Assembly may be furnished with full reports on the work of UNRRA and on the progress made towards economic rehabilitation in the countries being assisted by UNRRA.

Twenty-first plenary meeting, 1 February 1946.
