course of next week, suggesting in the first place the adoption
of the procedure which had been discussed as between the Sheikh
and the Company, and the Company end secondly, recording
the points on which agreement had been reached or which had been
raised but not disposed of in the discussions with Mr.Fraser and
Mr.Hearn on 14th "December; thirdly, indicating in general terms

preferable to indicate them in outline and say that a more
detailed statement would follow; that we should be prepared to
discuss them further with the Ccmpany if necessary later, but
that in the interest of clearing the ground for their ccrnmercial
negotiations with the Sheikh, we thought it undesirable to
postpone communication of our comment on the draft agreement and
on the question of procedure until the special desiderata of
H.M.G. had. been more fully elaborated.

be raised with the A.P.O.C. on the articles in question.
