ana that the Resident should be given discretion, if he thinks
fit, to give a general undertaking (subject to consideration of
at any rate the point raised in the first sub-paragraph of
paragraph 4) iinrnediately,
5. Oux gbxiord \ i ew v/ould De that the Question of any
reconnaissjxnce o /er ■ o ar should be left until the Question of
protection has been broscned .• Particularly if it is broached
oy the oneilch, tne Resident will be in a position to take the
i line that, while the matter must be referred to His Majesty's
GoverniJient uhey will obviously be anxious in the first place
to ascertain what difficulties are involved in the grant of
protection, and for this purpose it woulo^be possible for him to
obtain the consent of the Sheikh to reconnaissance flights
of the nature which you suggest. As the result of these
reconnaissance flights, which need not, I imagine, take very long,
it would presumably be possible for the Air Ministry to reach
final conclusions without delay as to the landing grounds which
they would require in the event of a guarantee of protection
being given. The connected question of intelligence is one for
settlement between the departments concerned in consultation
with the Political Resident A senior ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul General) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Residency. , and is not of immediate urgency,
6. On the points to which you refer in paragraph 5 of
your letter, I may say that in the event of our entering into
closer relations with the Sheikh of -^atar consequent on the
grant of an oil concession by him, we should, as at present-
advised, proposed to aim at securing that the air procedure
which h^sbeen agreed with the Air Ministry and the Foreign Office
in the case of Bahrein, Koweit ana Muscat should equally apply to
Qatar - in ooher words, that there shoul^ be a formal agreement
with the Sheikh covering civil aviation (ana providing for the
payment to him of a certain rent in respect of such civil aviation
facilities as might be provided), accompanied by a binding exchange
