Introductory note signed Ministry of Justice, Baghdad, and dated 12th March 1921: "The following translations of Turkish Laws have been prepared in the Ministry of Justice. The accuracy of the translation is not guaranteed and an apology is needed for manifest imperfections; but as they are urgently required for use by officials, it has been considered more useful to print them as they are rather than to delay their publication for further revision".

With Table of contents: "A translation of the Regulations for Election of Deputies has been printed separately".

In English, translated from Ottoman Turkish.
