ITEMS INCLUDED IN THE AGENDA OF THE SECURITY COUNCIL IN 1949 FOR THE FIRST TIME
Note. The Council’s practice is to adopt at each meeting, on the basis of a provisional agenda circulated in advance, the agenda for that particular meeting ; the agenda as adopted for each meeting in 1949 will be found in the Official Records of the Security Council, Fourth Year, Nos. 1 - 54 (397th to 458th meetings). Once an item is included in the agenda it remains thereafter on the list of matters of which the Council is seized, until the Council agrees to its removal. At subsequent meetings an item may appear in its original form or with the addition of such sub-items as the Council may decide to include.
The following chronological list shows the meeting at which the Council decided to include each matter in its agenda for the first time. Item
