(1) At a special session in July 1972 (CO-ORDINATION/R.947, para. 10), CCAQ discussed a proposal that in accordance with General Assembly resolution 2782 (XXXVI) 24 October (UN Day) should be an additional public holiday. It felt that while there might be no objection to the substitution of UN day for another public holiday, it would not be advisable to make it an additional day unless a considerable number of Member States did so. It noted that some organizations had 8 public holidays, some 9 and others 10. It agreed that 10 should not be exceeded.
