When Cabinet approved in May 1952 Canada's contribution of $600,000 to the Agency for the fiscal year July 1, 1952 to June 30, 1953, it also agreed that a further contribution would be made at the beginning of 1953 if, at that time, the Canadian Government were satisfied with the financial response of other member states and the progress achieved by UNRWAPR in carrying out its relief and resettlement plans. The Canadian contribution, if any, would be based on the matching formula.
2. In order to assist us in deciding whether we should approach Cabinet at the time our final supplementary estimates for 1952 are being considered (on or about March 31st next) and, if so, the size of the contribution to be recommended, we would appreciate receiving from you at an early date the latest information you may have of the contributions received from or pledged by governments, as well as any other details which may be considered useful. Your advice and comments would, of course, be most appreciated.
