Report of the Commission of Enquiry, North Borneo and Sarawak, 1962/CHAPTER 4/Chairman
D.—Summary of Recommendaiions in Sections B and C, and Comments, by the Chairman.
235. In Section A of this Chapter recommendations have been made on certain general matters. On some of them there is unanimity, and on others there is some divergence of opinion which can only be resolved by Governments.
236. For reasons explained in paragraph 145 it has been necessary to set out other proposals separately, in Sections B and C above respectively. Owing to the different views taken in the Commission about the phasing of the creation of Malaysia. many of these proposalsare seen by the British members of the Commission as objectives which should start to taken effect immidiately on the creation of Malaysia. Subject to this qualification, there is unanimity or near-unanimity in the Commission on most of these recommendations, which I summarise below:
Representation of the Borneo territories in the Federal Parliament should take account not only of their populations but also of their size and potentialities
(ii) Special Porsition of the Indigenous Race
(v) At least in the early years, there should be no change in administrative arrangement in so far as they affect the ordinary live of the people.
