Dear Colonel 9
/
Will you please refer to Mr. v/eightman* s demi-
official letter No. 1343-A/42 f dated the 28th August,
1942 regarding the proposal for the air-conditioning
of buildings in the Persian Gulf Historically used by the British to refer to the sea area between the Arabian Peninsula and Iran. Often referred to as The Gulf or the Arabian Gulf. Agencies?
2. We intend taking up the matter again. The
intention is that when the war situation is easier and
if the funds can be made available, a contract may be
placed with an Air Conditioning Firm in India for the
supply of the requisite number of plants to you and
that the importing flra will be granted an import
licence. It is expected that when the manufacturers
of the air conditioning equipment in the United States
of America are allowed to change over from the war
production to peace production, there will be a heavy
demand on them for such equipment, and therefore the
sooner a contract is placed in the United States of
America the better.
3. I am desired to request that the Government of
TivHn may be furnished with information as to the des
cription and number of the buildings in which it is
considered essential to instal the air conditioning
plants and the number of plants required. On the
supply of the plants it will presumably be possible
for the Mechanic-in-Charge of the Work-shop of the Persian
Gulf Independent Sub-Division to instal them in the
various buildings; but the Government of India would
like to know whether the maintenance of the plants
will necessitate the engagement of any extra mechanics,
and if so, what the cost involved will be.
Yours sincerely,
Sd./- P.N. KEOSHNAS1AMY.
