representatives and the views of the Sheikh, possibly (a
point to be discussed later in connection with Article 12 of
the revised draft Concession), exclusive British exploitation
of any concession, the appointment of a British Chief Local

Apart from the points covered by (a) and (b),
closer examination of the problem had shown that the grant of

Sheikh for any reason failed to afford it, ana, probably, the
appointment of a Political Agent A mid-ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Agency. to represent H.M.G. and would

secure the air facilities in Qatar which the. Sheikh had
hitherto refused to give save in return for guarantees of
protection which H.M.G. were not prepared to undertake.
Mr.Rendel said that, speaking personally, he was
entirely in favour of a procedure such as had been described.
Higher authority at the Foreign Office had not of course yet bem
consulted. But action on these lines would, he
was confident* be consistent with their general
