  • Description

    THE PRIME MINISTER OF SINGAPORE, MR. LEE KUAN YEW, WAS AT MR. HAROLD WILSON'S OFFICIAL COUNTRY RESIDENCE, CHEQUERS, TODAY (SUNDAY) TO CONTINUE THEIR TALKS. BUT IT WASN'T ALL WORK - THE TWO LEADERS TOOK TIME OFF FOR A ROUND OF GOLF AT A NEARBY COURSE.

    MR. LEE IS IN LONDON FOR TALKS WITH MR. WILSON AND BRITISH OFFICIALS ON A NEW DEFENCE PACT BETWEEN THE TWO COUNTRIES. THE WEEK-LONG TALKS THAT WILL FINISH TOMORROW HAVE ALSO DEALT WITH THE DEVELOPMENT OF SINGAPORE'S TRADE AND ECONOMY.

    SINGAPORE IS BRITAIN'S LAST MAJOR OVERSEAS BASE WITH FACILITIES FOR ARMY, NAVY AND AIR FORCE. MR. LEE HAS SAID THAT HE EXPECTS BRITAIN TO MAINTAIN THE BASE UNTIL AFTER 1970. BUT UNDER NEW AGREEMENT HE WANTS HIS GOVERNMENT TO HAVE MORE SAY IN THE WAY BRITAIN USES THE BASE.

    THE TWO LEADERS HAD INFORMAL TALKS OVER LUNCHEON AT CHEQUERS, AND THEN TEAMED UP FOR A GAME AGAINST TWO MEMBERS OF THE LOCAL GOLF CLUB. IT ENDED IN A DRAW, AND THERE WAS A DRINK IN THE CLUB HOUSE AFTERWARDS.
