BHITAMIC HOUSE,
FINSBURY CIRCUS
LONDON. E.G.2.
llth July, 1934.
Dear Walton,
QATAR .
You are, I think, faxailiar with the steps
we have recently taken to send Mr. Mylles to Qatar with
the object of renewing the option period for 6 months, or
possibly more.
It will not be possible, for various reasons,
to open up concession negotiations with the Shaikh for
several months, but my recollection is that we are
generally agreed with the India Office The department of the British Government to which the Government of India reported between 1858 and 1947. The successor to the Court of Directors. , etc. respecting
the character of the two Agreements (Government and Company)
which will govern the negotiations. However, I suggest
it will be desirable that we should have one meeting at the
India Office The department of the British Government to which the Government of India reported between 1858 and 1947. The successor to the Court of Directors. , after the leave season, when we can be quite
sure that we are keeping step.
There is one point arising out of our last
meeting on which I think it desirable to write you: I am
referring to the clause respecting ! refining' in the Government
Agreement. You may remember that at the discussion in the
India Office The department of the British Government to which the Government of India reported between 1858 and 1947. The successor to the Court of Directors. , at which Mr. Agnew was present, he expressed
dislike for the wording of the Refining Clause as it appears
in the Kuwait Political Agreement and suggested another method
of meeting the situation. However, at a discussion I
recently had with him, in which he learnt that the Kuwait
Political Agreement would not be published to the world,
or referred to in the Commercial Agreement, he agreed that,
subject to the same procedure being followed in the case of
Qatar/
