Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 3, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta - THI LCfHBMDOI HERALD - Wednesday, March 9, 1971 Tories renege on their Persian Gulf troop pledge LONDON (AP) - The Con-Mrvative government is going to follow a timetable set by Labor three years ago and have British troops out of its nine protectorates along the Persian Gulf by the end of this year.

This plan is in trouble because of the reluctance to join of Bahrein, an island just north of Qatar whose 200,000 residents would constitute half the population of the state. The policy is a sharp about-face from the vigorous Conservative criticism that greeted the Labor government's announcement in January, 1968, that Britain's traditional role east of the Suez would be ended. At that time, the Conservatives said withdrawal would create a vacuum in the valuable oil-producing region that might be filled by the Soviet Union. Prime Minister Edward Heath's campaign platform said the decision would be restudied and the implication obvious was that it would be overturned, But Heath ran into opposition from Saudi Arabia and ban, which said their armies could maintain peace without Britain. And the Conservative govern- ment has access to no more money to keep troops in the area than Labor had. Britain entered the Persian Gulf in 1820 when local sheiks traded co-operation against pirates for British military guarantees. In 1892, Britain took control over the foreign affairs of the states.
