Company wishes to re-export to Iraq. The Bahrain
Government is prepared to extend this concession
as favourable treatment to Petroleum Concessions
Limited in the case of the contemplated exports
under this category from Qatar to Iraq etc.
Category (f). The Bahrain Government is prepared
to waive the customs dues on those goods which have
been purchased by His Majesty’s Forces provided that
we are duly supplied by the authorities with a list
of the goods purchased.
4. Regarding the valuation of the goods, I
suggest that the company should submit its basis of
valuation. The company presumably knows the value
of its plant etc. and by what percentage it has been
written down annually; this would seem to be a reason
able basis for valuation. I agree that it might be
difficult andwould take time if previous documents
were required.
5. The question of customs liabilities on
future imports to Qatar through Bahrain when the
v/ar ends and the company resumes its work cannot
be decided at present.
6. The representative of Californ a Arabian-
Standard Oil Company has also written a letter re
lating to similar points connected with material
which may have to be shipped through Bahrain for sale
to military authorities elsewhere. I think both
cases should be dealt with in the same way and the
nationality of the companies should not affect any
arrangements which are made.
Yours sincerely,
E. B. Wakefied, Esquire, I.C.S.,
H. B. M’s 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. ,
