In-depth study of the United Nations intergovernmental structure and functions in the economic and social fields (decisions 14/12)

66. At the 15th meeting of the session, on 18 June, the Council had before it a draft decision on this subject submitted by the Bureau (UNEP/GC.14/L.410).

67. The draft decision was adopted by consensus.

68. The representative of Australia said that he was not pleased with some of the language contained in the text of the statement annexed to the decision and reserved the right to take up the matter in higher bodies of the United Nations system. In his view, statements such as the one under considerations should not in any way prejudge the outcome of governmental decisions stemming from the Special Commission of the Economic and Social Council and the General Assembly.
