    HE SAID COMMUNISTS COMING FROM MALAYA DURING THE LAST DECADE, OPPOSED THE MERGER BECAUSE IT WOULD MEAN AN INTERNAL SECURITY IN MALAYA UNDER A STRONG CENTRAL GOVERNMENT.

    ON BRITISH BASES IN SINGAPORE, MR. LEE SAID ONE COULD EXPECT THEM TO DISAPPEAR OVERNIGHT BUT ONLY OVER A LONG PERIOD - 15 TO 20 YEARS - ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THEY PROVIDED EMPLOYMENT FOR NEARLY 40,000 PERSONS.
