My Lord,
British Embassyt Tehran.
10th May 1946.
'6 "I fl J
I have considered the proposal, contained in your
telegram No.52 of the 14th April, to leave unfilled, after the
departure of Captain V/ o P. Keelan, the post of His Maiesty f 3
Vice-Consulate at Khorramshahr; and I nave reached the conclusion,
after consultation with His Majesty f s Consul-Greneral at Bushire
and His Majesty f s Consul at Khorramshahr, that the consular work
at Khorramshahr has sufficiently diminished to warrant the
abolition, at least for the time being, of the Vice-Consul's post*
2. In recommending this measure, however, I have the
honour to propose the immediate creation of a post of Confidential
Assistant at His Majesty's Consulate, as is suggested in Lt.Colonel
Hay's D.O. letter No.C/94 of the 10th March, ly42. addressed to
Sir Reader Bullard ~aRdT copie* to Sir Olaf Caroej the holder of
this office to be European or Anglo-Indian drawing a salary similar
to the salary of the Assistant at Kerman, with 100 rupees a month
in addition as G-ulf Allowance.
3. Should the Grovemment of India and His Majesty's
Grovernment concur in the creation of such a post. I understand that
His Majesty's Consul-Greneral could find a suitable incumbent.
4. I am sending copies of this despatch to His Majesty's
Consul General at Bushire ana, together with a copy of the letter
to which I have referred above, to the Foreign Office.
I have the honour to be.
My Lord,
Your Lordship’s most obedient,
humble servant,
His Excellency
The Governor General of India,
External Affairs Department, New Delhi.
