I have examined the pages and kept images of that document.

The 10th Plenary Assembly of the CCIR was held in Geneva from
1963-01-15 to 1963-02-16.  During that meeting Recommendation 374 was
approved to supersede Recommendation 319.  Recommendation 374 does not
contain any form of the words "coordination", "coordinated", nor the
letters "UTC".  The text states that the broadcasts of time signals
should "be offset to keep the time pulses in close agreement with UT2"
and "maintained within approximately 100 ms of universal time UT2"
with steps of exactly 50 ms.
