BWA World Congress Resolution 1934.4

124. The Rev. B. Grey Griffith, England moved the following resolution on behalf of the Resolutions Committee, which was seconded from the Chair:—

“This Congress hears with deep concern of the conditions of want and starvation in Soviet Russia which have already caused millions of deaths, and are likely, unless help can be given, to cost yet more millions of lives in the coming winter. It would welcome the appointment of an international non-political Commission to ascertain the extent of the need and to devise means of relief.”

125. The Resolution was put and carried unanimously.
