gj r 20th January 1911.
In reply to your letter No. 46,187, dated the 6 th January 1911,
regarding the arrangements arrived at for the purpose of dealing with
plague at Bahrein, I am directed by the Secretary of State for India to
explain that in the letter of this Office, dated the 21st December ‘last,
it was contemplated that the annual sum, not exceeding Rs. 1,250
(831. 6 s. 8 d.), of which the Government of India had [authorised the
expenditure, should be equally divisible between the British and Indian
exchequers.
The money in question would be expended, strictly speaking, on
internal measures of plague prevention, rather than on “ quarantine
arrangements,” and for this reason it seemed preferable to regard the
previous sanction as having lapsed. But the principle of the equal
liability of the two Governments for expenditure in dealing adequately
with plague at Bahrein remains unchanged, and the Earl of Crewe
would, therefore, propose, subject to the concurrence of Secretary Sir
E. Grey, to include the sum actually expended, not exceeding the amount
above-named, in the annual statements of diplomatic and consular
expenditure of the Government of India to be presented to your
Department.
I am, &c.,
