It is suggested by the Sanitary Commissioner to the Government of India that
m order to accommodate female passengers, two sets of rooms, including bath-rooms;
should be provided for first and second class passengers. Do you think that this is
necessary ? If so, what would be the extra cost ? As Assistant Surgeon is already in
receipt of a salary of 200 rupees including local allowance, would not an additional
50 rupees suffice for quarantine duties ? At other Gulf ports Assistant Surgeons do
not receive a local aLowance in addition to the quarantine allowance of 150 rupees.

Acting Besidency Surgeon and I do not consider that a double set of rooms is
necessary. Few females travel unattended. Though few ships come to Bahrein the
duty is arduous, as ships^ lie a very long way out, and it was for this reason that I
suggested 100 rupees. Ii this is considered too much, perhaps half (?) the allowance
paid to other Assistant Surgeons, viz., 75 rupees, might be given to the Bahrein man.
