been reached with the Persian Government upon the form of the
article in which His Majesty’s Government in the united
Kingdom will abandon their rights under the various
instruments to be abrogated, it will be necessary to consult
the dominions Governments regarding the form in which they
will similarly abandon such rights as they also possess under
the rclfivent documents.. The most convenient procedure will
probably be by exchange of noteso Drafts of such notes
were enclosed in Mro Henderson’s despatch NOo 464 of the
26th September, 1929, but the wording of these drafts will
obviously need revision and, as stated in the last
paragraph of Mr* Henderson’s despatch NOo 54 cf the 30th
January, 1930, it has always been realioed that the actual
wording of the notes on behalf of the Dominion Governments
cannot be settled until agreement has been reached on the
relevant article of the Treaty, You should not youafcself
refer to the position of the Dominions in this matter, and
if the point is raised by the Persians during the
negotiations, you should confine yourself to an explanation
on the lines set out above, without committing yourself
as to the form which may eventually be found acceptable
to the Dominion Governments,
I am, with great truth and regard.
Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
(For the Secretary of State)
Q. W, RENDEL,
