and this requires no further comment from me.
4. On the second point, I agree with the view expressed
by the Political Agent A mid-ranking political representative (equivalent to a Consul) from the diplomatic corps of the Government of India or one of its subordinate provincial governments, in charge of a Political Agency. . The words "other than a Corporation"
in the definition of Qatar subject clearly qualify the pre
ceding phrases "a subject of the Shaikh of Qatar or any other
Moslem person" and must relate, therefore, exclusively to hy
pothetical Qatar or Moslem Corporations. They cannot affect
a British Corporation such as Petroleum Concessions Limited,
which is covered by the dfinition of British subject. This
being so, no essential object is served by the insertion of
the words "other than a Corporation" in this particular de
finition and I recommend their excision.
5. On the third point I agree fully with the Political
Agent's comments. Here again no very definite object is in
view and consequently it v/ould be an error to arrive at the
expected impasse with the Shaikh over a provision of this
nature. I suggest, therefore, that sub-paragrauh (iii) of
(D(a)
Article 8^/should be eliminated.
r. If His majesty*s Government accept these recommenda
tions I anticipate no difficulty in bringing about the ex
change of notes contemplated in paragraph 2 of your letter
