International Organizations in Which the United States Participates

By Laurence F. Schmeckebier | Go to book overview

The British delegation is authorized by the government of Great Britain to propose to the conference on the international map of the world that a permanent office be established in England.

This office will include both a central office located at Southampton in the building of the Ordnance Survey and a branch in London.

The duties of the office will be to publish an annual report and to organize a service for the exchange of information for the purposes of furnishing useful facts to all interested parties.

In addition, the drafts of maps would be submitted for criticism before publication is undertaken.

If the transmission of the originals presents difficulties, the drafts could be replaced by photographs or a provisional proof.

Each state accepting this proposal would contribute 150 francs annually toward the expenses of the central office. This amount will be remitted to the proper person through the usual diplomatic channels.

The proposal was voted upon and adopted.1926 --Joint resolution of May 1, 1926.
