145. We have reached a considerable measure of agreement on the appropriate basis for entry of the Borneo territories into a Federation of Malaysia. There is, however, a fundamental divergence on tile question of phasing, as to whether the Federation should be formed in one stage or in two stages. This divergence of opinion involves a different approach to a number of subjects, on many of which there may nevertheless be a high degree or unanimity. It has therefore been found convenient to set out the arguments and recommendations on these Subjects separately.

146. There are certain general matters not afleeted by this divergence or opinion on some of which views are unanimous and on others, to sortie extent, divergent.

147. We have therefore divided this Chapter into four sections:

A.—Recommendaiions on certain general matters.

B.—Recommendaiions by Sir Anthony Abell and Sir David Watherston.

C.—Recommendaiions by Dato Wong Pow Nee and Enche Mohammed Ghazali bin Shalie.

D.—Summary of Recommendaiions in Sections B and C, and Comments, by the Chairman.
