Sub.iect : Proposed appointment of a
Confidential Assistant at
Khorramshahr.
(Dear Bullard)
As you know there is a shortage of I.P.S. especially
in the junior ranks, and developments east of India are
increasing the strain on the Cadre.
is any necessity for a second I.P.S. officer at Khorramshahr.
I went into the matter with Dredge during my recent visit
and came to the conclusion that there was not really enough
work to occupy the full time of two officers, but that the^,
amount of routine work was rather heavy for one officer to
handle without assistance. In these circumstances what,.
I think, is required is a good European or Anglo-Indian
Confidential Assistant and the appointment of a second I.P.S.
officer appears to me wasteful in the present strained state
of the Cadre. The area covered by the Vice-Consulate (or
Consulate) is small and there is little touring to be done.
3. I believe Caroe would accept a solution on these
lines and I should be glad to know if you would also agree.
I could, I think, produce a suitable Anglo-Indian frcm my
staff to fill the post of Confidential Assistant and I would
not preclude the possibility of his eventually being given
the status of Vice Consul should this be found desirable.
4. I am sending a copy of this letter to Caroe.

I have for seme time been doubtful whether there
