41. In considering the budget for 1987, the Committee noted that the sum of approximately $ 2.7 million was available as cash in hand. This sum was considerably higher than in previous years due, in addition to the efforts noted above, to the fact that one State Party had resumed its signifi­cant voluntary contributions to the Fund. In addition there had been some savings on the 1986 budget, in particular because the Secretariat had been insufficiently staffed to develop internatio­nal assistance projects. In this connection, the Committee requested that in future working ...
