2? My provisional viev; is that only man whose retention is
required in the next financial year is OZA Plant driver at
Muscat, Such repairs and minor works as are required can
probably be carried out more economically by Political Acent
through contractors without intervention of P.R. Department staff.
If Government of India wish to retain any portion of staff to
safeguard their interests in buildings, they should pay for them.
3* Walters who is here is inclined to agree but matter is
outside his mandate. Suggest Ministry of ’.'orks be consulted.
4c My 'propprpliaidre.f^r to Arab side of the Gulf only and I would
suggest Tehran Embassy be consulted about Persian side.
5« So far as rest of current financial year is concerned I am
awaiting report by Central P„Y.. Department Special Officer, but I
consider we can carry out any repairs or small works that may be
necessary without the assistance of P.W. Department staff, and
that only such staff should be retained as is necessary for
completing records and winding up accounts together with OZA for
running power p>lant at Muscat.
6. Details of existing P.W. Department staff follow by post.
