- 1951-12 Panel on Rover Scouts – The Conference thanks the Panel on Rover Scouts for their interesting Report and recommends this Report to the attention of those responsible for the Rover Section of its member associations.
- 1951-13 Old Scouts – a) The Conference is convinced that Scouting is a whole. Being responsible for Scouting in its entirety, the Conference considers the world Scout Movement, to avoid any faction, must be represented solely by the International Scout Conference at a world level, with its International Committee and Bureau, and without any parallel organisation. On the other hand, being alive to the question of Old Scouts, the Conference has the duty to watch over their interests and recommends to national member associations that they foster the development of Old Scouts as much as possible. The International Committee is authorised to convene meetings for representatives of Old Scout bodies which are recognised in their own countries and with the object of sharing their experience and coordinating their efforts. b) The Conference thanks the Advisory Committee on Old Scouts for their services and requests the International Committee to keep this Advisory Committee in being for future consultation.
- 1951-14 Visits Abroad, Hitch-hiking – a) The Conference strongly condemns the practice of hitch-hiking, also of touring parties which seek to solicit financial help either from Scouts or the public in other countries, in the course of Scout travels. It is not within the sense of the Scout Law to do so at the expense of others. b) While genuine expeditions and the spirit of adventure are to be encouraged, any intended Scout exploration parties should be advised well in advance to the Scout headquarters of the other country(ies) concerned through their own International Commissioner, as a matter of courtesy and in order to ensure practicability of planning.
- 1951-15 Visits Abroad, National Colours – Upon the recommendation of the International Commissioners, the Conference recommends that Scouts travelling abroad in uniform, either individually or in groups, should wear some national badge or colour flash, preferably above the shirt pocket.
- 1951-16 Correspondence, Control of Requests – Upon the recommendation of the International Committee, the Conference recommends that all requests for Scout badges, books, equipment, etc. received directly from individuals or units by the Scout headquarters or units of another country should be referred back to the national Scout headquarters of that country, and that normally such requests should be made through individuals or units own national headquarters. Exceptions may be made to this general rule in the case where reasonable requests are made by Scouts who have been properly “linked” on an exchange basis, provided that the regulations as to issue of badges are not contravened. Where requests of this kind are received from countries having no recognized Scout association the International Bureau should be informed.
- 1951-17 Correspondence, Chain Letters – Upon the recommendation of the International Commissoners, the Conference condemns the practice of "chain" or “pyramid” letters which are considered to be of no lasting value and liable to abuse. In some countries such “chain" letters are prohibited by law or the postal authorities. It is recommended that any such communications be destroyed by the recipient.
- 1951-18 World Friendship Badge – a) The Conference thanks the United Nations Scouts for their paper, "Training in World Brotherhood"; b) The Conference recommends that training manuals or programme plans for boys of 14 and over of all Member Associations should include provision of periodic sessions for study or activity related to world affairs; c) Suggest that Member Associations consider the institution of a merit badge in world brotherhood; d) Requests the International Bureau to make available to Member Associations desiring it: i) Suitable material on education in world brotherhood, ii) A draft statement of requirements for a merit badge in world brotherhood, iii) Material for a training manual and programme plans for boys of 14 and over.
- 1951-19 Scouting in Rural Areas – The Conference thanks the Greek delegation for their paper on Scouting in Rural Areas and requests that the International Bureau collect information from those countries having special provision or programme for Lone Scouts and Scouting in sparsely-populated regions for the study of those countries concerned.
- 1951-20 Wider Use of the Scout Method – The Conference thanks the Greek delegation for their interesting paper on " Wider Use of the Scout Method " and strongly recommends to member countries: i) the fullest extension of Scouting to mentally and spiritually distressed boys, ii) the value of Scouting methods among boys in corrective institutions.

The Conference further affirms its belief in the principles applied through this training at Gilwell Park, as a national and international training centre.
