% dear McClaughry,
Many thanks for your letter of the 29th January,
^ No. S.32797, on the subject of air facilities in Qatar,
2. Walton will write separately to you about the point
raised in the first sub-paragraph of paragraph 3. He asks
me to say that he has noted the verbal alteration suggested
in your paragraph 6.
3. As I have explained to you informally, we are taking
up in the light of the telegrams of which you have had copies
the question of giving the Sheikh of -^atar a guarantee of
protection against landward aggression in return for the grant
by him of an oil concession to the Anglo-Persian Oil Company,
and an official letter consulting you with particular reference
to the question of protection and the commitments which tins
would involve will I hope reach you tomor^row,
4. We are particularly anxious, subject, of course, to
the concurrence of the interested departments, to put tue
Resident in a position to say sometning definite to the Sneiiih >
about the grant of protection, should circumstances in his
opinion make this desirable, and while we entirely agree that
the two points dealt with in paragraph 4 of your leuter under
reply will have to be considered before any final commitment
is entered into, we trust that the Air Ministry in tueii xepj.^
to our official letter will be prepared to agree mau oonsidcxation
of them need not delay progress witn regard uo general policy
and/
