In light of DPM Heng's ministerial statement, do you think the size of Singapore national reserves should be disclosed? Is it a matter of national security or should Singaporeans have a right to know?

Chanced upon this article while researching on the national reserves of SG (https://www.straitstimes.com/politics/size-of-reserves-cannot-be-disclosed-as-a-matter-of-national-security-says-heng-swee-keat). "In response, Mr Singh said the WP seeks figures on the reserves because "when the Government introduces policies where reserves have to be employed, the question we have to ask ourselves is, is it enough, or is it too much... or is it too little."" Any thoughts?
