75 (1949). Resolution of 27 September 1949
The Security Council,
Considering that, in virtue of General Assembly resolution 231 (III) of 8 October 1948, it is a matter for its
own decision whether, in the case of commissions of inquiry or investigation instituted by it, the
representative of a Member State participating in such a commission needs to be assisted by an alternate,
Considering that, in cases where this need has been found by the Security Council to exist, the
Secretary-General is authorized by the same resolution to reimburse Member States retroactively for the
travelling and subsistence expenses of the alternates of their representatives on the said commissions,
Notes that since the institution of the under-mentioned commissions the representatives of Member States
that are participating or have participated have each had to be assisted by an alternate:
1. The Committee of Good Offices, which has now become the United Nations Commission for Indonesia;
2. The United Nations Commission for India and Pakistan.
Adopted at the 448th meeting by 7 votes to 1 (Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic), with 3 abstentions
(Cuba, Egypt, Union of Soviet Socialist Republics).
