Scope and Content

In the minutes of the first meeting of this small committee, SZ is listed as representing the Ministry of Defence; by the fifth meeting he has been assigned to the Lord President's Office. These are the only minutes in the file. The few papers in the series deal with mineral resources, non-ferrous metals, timber and fibres. One, entitled Yugoslavia [DC (51)13, 28 August 1951] deals with the scale of assistance to be afforded to the Yugoslavian Government and the country's investment programme in the context of importing commodities and food from Yugoslavia.

Administrative / Biographical History

The business of the Committee, established under the auspices of the Lord President of the Council, was complementary to that of the Natural Resources Technical Committee (the subject of Series SZ/NRTC), but focussing on administrative problems and the development of new overseas sources of supply.
