your approval, I organised in this country a staff of . fo/i
Political Advisers with assistants to combat anti-Britisho
activities of all kinds, to keep me informed of oolitica!*
and social developments throughout the country and to
secure co-operation between the local Iraqi authorities
and the British military forces.
2. In July 1941 I addressed to each of the officers
who had then been appointed to this organization a paper
defining their position and explaining to them the lines
on which I wished them to direct their activities.
3. Recently there has come a need to revise this
directive and I have accordingly sent a new letter to all
officers of the Political Advisory Staff in which I have
explained the work to which, in present circumstances and
in the light of the changes that have occurred in the last
two years, they should now give their attention.
4. It may be of use to have these papers in your
archives and I accordingly transmit copies herewith.
5. I am sending a copy of this despatch and its
enclosures to the Minister of State in Cairo.
