Reference my telegram No. 295 [sic].
Following for Howe.
My letters of August 21st and September 4th
(297/46/46 and 448/23/46). Have you been able to
persuade the Anglo Iranian Oil Company?
2. Now that the question of status is settled
(your telegram No. 1022 ) it is most undesirable that a
decision about'THeHouse should be further postponed*
If like Government of India the Ministry of Works are
unwilling to purchase at present they could ask the
Anglo Iranian Oil Company for a lease of Khazalieh
House for say 12 months until the question of purchase
is decided. In my opinion Willoughby’s objections
to the house that the Government of India were about
to purchase are well-founded. Alterations would take
two or three months and cost a considerable sum. It
is therefore unsuitable for leasing whereas Khazalieh
is suitable for immediate occupation (see my telegram
.No. 1585). I hope therefore that you will bring all
possible pressure to bear on the Directors to override
objections which local management will certainly raise.
[Copy sent to Mr. Howe].
