Administrative and budgetary questions

At its regular 1975 session which opened on 16 September, the General Assembly had before it a report of the Secretary-General on the composition of the United Nations Secretariat. The report dealt mainly with issues relating to United Nations recruitment policy. It took into account the Assembly’s 1974 decision which laid down additional considerations for the application of recruitment policy and requested the Secretary-General to study possible changes in the formula for assigning posts to Member States based on geographical considerations. Annexed to the report were statistical tables on the distribution of the staff by region, nationality, sex and grade.
