after the third round that Germany would win. Once the delegates had selected Germany as the location of the new intergovernmental Organisation's headquarters they appointed John Morgan as EUMETSAT's first Director.

EUMETSAT's next Council meeting was in August in Darmstadt. "As I recall, we were just very happy to be on our own and in control of the Meteosat Operational Programme," says Claude Pastre. What the Council minutes show is that the delegates resolved the structural deficit, agreeing that each country would pay pro rata to make up the difference.

The third Council meeting was at the beginning of December 1986. It discussed EUMETSAT's future staffing requirements. Decisions about staffing levels could not be taken, said delegates, until the Organisation's aims were known. They instructed the Director to draw up a Long-Term Plan, thus setting EUMETSAT on the path to becoming what it is today.
