Majlis Fourth Term Begins

By: Mir M.Hosseini


After nearly six years, Majlis started its fourth term on June, 21, 1921. The bill requesting abolition of the 1919 treaty, signed between the Iranian Prime Minister and the British Government while Iran was under occupation, was nullified. The bill needed ratification by the parliament.
During the fourth term, Majlis passed the following bills:
-Friendship pact between Iran and the Soviet Union.
-A scholarship bill for sending 60 students abroad.
-A real estate tax and registration bill.
-Denouncement of the Anglo-Persian agreement : Issued by George Curzon in Aug, 1919, The hegemonic deal guaranteed British access to all Iranian oil fields in return for:
1. Supply of munition and equipment for a British-trained army.
2. 2 million sterling loan.
3. Revise the Customs tariff.
4. Survey and build railroads.
By the Anglo-Persian agreement Iran was tricked into granting full British control of the army, customs, transportation on top of oil reserves thus turning the country into a colony. Majlis denounced it on June 22, 1921.
The fourth Majlis term ended on June, 23, 1923 thus making the first record for a full functioning parliament term although Iran was under a dictatorship at the time.
