The Hague, December 20, 1962.
I have the honour, upon instructions from Her Majesty's Principal Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, to refer to the Convention between the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Kingdom of the Netherlands for the Avoidance of Double Taxation and the Prevention of Fiscal Evasion with respect to Taxes on Income, signed at London on the 15th of October, 1948.
I have the honour to propose on behalf of the Government of the United Kingdom that, in accordance with the provisions of Article XIX, the above-mentioned Convention should be extended to the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland in the manner, subject to the modifications, and with effect from the dates specified in the Annex to the present Note.
If the foregoing proposal is acceptable to the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, I have the honour to suggest that the present Note with its Annex, and Your Excellency's reply to that effect should be regarded as constituting an Exchange of Notes as provided for in the first paragraph of Article XIX of the abovementioned Convention and as placing on record the agreement reached between the two Governments in this matter.
I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to Your Excellency the assurance of my highest consideration.
