6. Elections to Functional Commissions of ECOSOC and Executive Board of UNICEF
United Nations Division: Vacancies on the Executive Board of UNICEF and the Functional Commissions of the Economic and Social Council will be filled at the sixteenth session of the Council scheduled to convene in New York on June 30, 1953. Canada will stand for election to the Population Commission and, if unsuccessful in that, will try to retain membership on the Social Commission. As we are no longer on the Economic and Social Council and since there is a strong possibility that we may leave our seat on the Social Commission when our term expires in December next, it has also been decided that we should try to retain a seat on UNICEF. Canada continues to be a member of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (indefinite term) and of the Fiscal and Statistical Commissions (until the end of 1955).
