1. The Standing Committee on Petitions established by the Trusteeship Council at the 397th nesting, tenth session, and composed of the representatives of Australia, China, TCI Salvador, New Zealand, the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, and the United States of America, examined at its 33rd, 35th and 36th meetings on 2, 7 and 9 July 1952. the following petitions concerning Tanganyika: - Petition from the Representatives of the Wa-Meru Tribe (T/PET.2/99 and Adds. 1-7) - Petition from Mr. Gaaaliell Sablak (T/IET.2/1U3) 2. These petitions had been examined by the Trusteeship Council and an oral hearing granted to the representative of the petitioners at its 431st and 432nd meetings on 30 June 1952. Sir John Lamb participated in the examination as the special representative of the Administering Authority. 3. The Standing Committee submits herewith to the Council its report on these petitions. 4. The Standing Committee draws to the attention of the Council the fact that the petitioners have indicated their wish to send another representative to the Trusteeship Council to make a further oral presentation on the subject matter of the petition. At the time of the Committee's examination of the petitions, Mr. Earle Seaton, the representative of the Wa-Meru tribe, had no information as to when the second representative of the petitioners was to arrive. The Committee therefore decided to complete its examination of the petitions and to refer to the Council any decision regarding the possible postponement of final action on them.
