With reference to the letter from this department of the 10th July (E
3363/580/25) enclosing copies of the Jedda Monthly Report for May, I am
directed by Viscount Halifax to state that he is considering the desirability
of discontinuing the practice of printing and distributing these reports as
from the end of the current year, unless there is any desire on the part of the
departments at present in receipt of copies that distribution should con
2. All information of importance contained in these reports is in any
case reported separately and earlier, by despatch and copies of any such
despatches are sent to the departments interested. There would accord-
ingly seem to Lord Halifax to be little advantage in continuing the distribu
tion of this information a second time in the form of a monthly report which
is compiled by His Majesty’s Legation primarily for their own record, in a
form which is not always entirely convenient for wider distribution.
