PAKISTAN

 The Pakistan situation was discussed at today's meeting of the Labor Party International Committee and the following resolutions were adopted.

 1. “The N.E.C., deeply concerned about the present human crisis in West and East Bengal, believes that the dangers of the present conflict within Pakistan are a threat to international peace and Security; that only a satisfactory political solution to the conflict within Pakistan can restore stability and end the threat to peace; and that the urgency and scale of the present human suffering among the refugees, and the dangers of early famine demand an unsparing response from Britain.

Government to urge at the forthcoming meeting of the Consortium that, until a peaceful settlement has been achieved in East Pakistan, aid to Pakistan should be limited to the relief and prevention of actual disease and distress, bearing in mind that many of those who most need aid are no longer in Pakistan."

 2. “In view of the obvious failure to get adequate relief to India and Pakistan and similar technical problems during other recent catastrophes, this Committee urges H.M. Government to propose the establishment of an international Relief Commission. This Commission should be set up immediately and be composed of those with experience of relief, transportation and the management of large scale organisation. In circumstances such as now existing in Pakistan the Commission would meet continuously and report on what measures would be necessary on a world scale for implementation by the United Nations. The Commission would establish permanent machinery to provide immediate
