The volume mostly concerns diplomatic and consular expenditure, specifically: the question of revising the existing arrangements under which, following the recommendations of the Welby Commission of 1900, the cost of this expenditure in Persia had been shared roughly equally between the Indian and Imperial Revenues (between the Indian Political Department and the Foreign Office); the proposals of the Foreign Office that Indian Political Department posts in Persia should be transferred to the Levant Consular Service, and thus come under the responsibility of the Foreign Office, with the Government of India paying a yearly contribution towards the posts; and the objections of the Government of India to the Foreign Office’s proposals.

The volume also includes papers regarding: the cost of troops from the Indian Establishment employed in Oman and Persia during the First World War; and the projected contribution from Indian Revenues of a moiety of a loan of £2,000,000 to the Persian Government under the ‘Curzon Agreement’ [Anglo-Persian Agreement] of 1919.
