negotiations with tne Sheiidi "before raising this question
with him. The first essential is to secure the Sheikh's
agreement in principle to the grant of the Qatar oil
concession to the An^lo Persian Oil Company (Iraq
Petroleum Company}. Once that consent has been secured,
and oelore tne xinal approval ox xiis Majesty 1 s Government
is given to the grant of a concession, the question of
jurisdiction can be raised. Such play as is possible can
then be made with the adverse financial effect on the
Sheikh if Eis Majesty's Government were forced to refuse
approval to the grant of a concession merely because he
adopted a recalcitrant attitude regarding itj and it can
be impressed upon him that a surrender of jurisdiction wi 11
be an essential prerequisite of the grant of any concession
to any applicant whoe ver he may be. The same opportunity
can be taken, if necessary, for considering bringing into
force the dormant articles of the Sheikh 1 s treaty, of which,
as the Government ox' India remark, the only one oil real
importance is 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. . here
again, however, the Secretary of State wouxa suggest that a
full discretion should be left to Colonel ihowle. Ix, lor
any reason circumstances appear propitious, either in the
discussions which it is now proposed tnat ne snould
