AGENDA NO. 2.                                      MISCELLANEOUS

The Acting President presided. The Prime Minister and all the members of the Cabinet, except the Minister for Home Affairs, attended. The Cabinet Secretary was present. The Defence Secretary attended by special invitation.

The Cabinet was pleased to confirm the minutes and decisions in respect of the subject “Civil Administrative Set-Up in liberated Bangladesh '' taken in the meeting held on November 22, 1971. In this regard it was pointed out that a few of the terms of reference given to the Secretaries Sub-Committee over-lapped with those given to the Planning Commission and hence there was need for very close coordination between the two. There were two alternative solutions. Either the Secretaries' Sub-Committee could prepare their recommendations and submit them to the Cabinet after consulting the Planning Cell or the two bodies (the Planning Cell and the Secretaries' Sub-Committee ) could submit their findings and recommendations separately.

It was decided that the Secretaries' Sub-Committee would submit their report directly to the Cabinet and that the Planning Cell would also do the same separately so that the Cabinet could have two separate sets of reports and recommendations before them.
