U the miners' deal goes 
through without further trouble, 
that would leave the power 
workers — whose militancy 
already has shown itself—with 
little visible support for un 
assault on the wage luhiL Power 
workers' leaders, who meet the 
Electricity Council again next 
wwk, are bidding for produc¬ 
tivity bonuses to maLch those 
bein-.j paid to miners. 

Earlier yesterday, TUC leaders 
criticised the Government's use 
of threats against companies to 
force employees* wage deals into 
line, and Mr. Albert Booth, Em¬ 
ployment Secretary, defended his 
department's role in the vetting 
of uhai he insisted was still a 
voluntary' incomes policy. 

By a comfortable majority, the 
miners' 14 negotiators voted io 
lake a straightforward 10 pev 
ecm. in addition to the wage bill 
from March 1, to last for 12 
months. They are challenging the 
board’s wage hill figure of 
£74Sm.. bui negotiations are 
expected to be complete within 
i two weeks for ratification by the 
’ full executive of the National 
Union of Mineworkers. A ballet 
of the 280.000 members may 
follow, but is not automatic. 

The miners’ unexpectedly rapid 
acquiescence to limits sot hy the 
Government came only 24 hours 
after the announcement that 
future Government " contract 
-with private companies would 
include a clause stipulating strict 
conformity with the pay ceiling.

THERE was uide.spreud con¬ 
demnation yesterday from 
trade and other organisations 
of the Government's intention 
to use public sector contracts 
to enforce pay policy. But 
some companies suggested 
that the Confederation of 
British Industry had over¬ 
reacted. The Government is 
to keep its options open on 
whether dividend control 
would go on beyond the end 
uf July. Back Page. The

was told in a written answer. 

At its Iasi meeting with the 
Board, the miners' union had 
complained that the JO per cent, 
was being rigidly enforced in 
the public sector hut not in the 
private sector. 

Yesterday, Mr. Ju c tinrmley. 
union president, revealed that 
he had given a warning lu the 
Chancellor and other Ministers 
on Tuesday that the Government 
would lose many workers* votes 
at an election if it continued to 
present itself as the only poli¬ 
tical party intent to fixing wage 
levels from on high. 

A more guarded nbjeetion to 

the Govern men i'.v handling of 
pay came earlier m Ihe day 
from the TCP. d-nunnc com¬ 
mittee whirh briefly discussed 
the latest initiative against the 
private sector. It said that 
sanctions were n»i the way to 
create the climate m which re¬

A move to m-c the Prime 
Minister abmii .-.auctions was not 
taken up and the issue will gu 
before the general council lale 
this month 

Mr. David Basnctt. TUC chair¬ 
man, said after'vnids: “We have 
avoided a wage explosion hut the 
longer you go on with an in¬ 
comes policy, the more difficult 
it becomes and ihe mure difficult

bargaining without a wage 

TUC leaders nr>- by nn means 
unanimous about sanctions— 
*?ome of I hove in the- public 
sector, fur instance, are in 
favour of them. The same 
ambivalence i.-- apparent in 
attitudes to the lb per cent, 
limit. One mnmlior 0 f the 
economic commillee yesterday 
described the Tl’C’s reaction to 
What is in elDM a Phase Three 
of the incomes policy as “a 
conspiracy of silence." 

Mr. Len Murray. TUC general 
secretary, said that people 
resented the kind or treatment 
and threats being used by the 
Government and gave a warning 
that it could be counter¬ 
productive. He said the TUC 
had no been consulted

I PRICES OF British exports com- 
I pared with those of its main com- 
'petflors have risen sharpJy in 
recent months and are now rela¬ 
tively .higher than at any time 
since the f967 devaluation. This 
follows the recent sharp rise in 

. This is shown by new Treasury 
estimates published in a Com¬ 
mons written reply and discussed 
in detail in the February issue of 
its Economic Progress Report. 

< The adverse trend ip relative 
export prices is likely to rein¬ 
force concern about the impact 
of the appreciation of sterling on 
export prospecls. A near-record 
number of companies in the 
January CBI survey considen-d 
export prices a likely constraint 
on sales overseas. 

? .. -The Treasury, however, argues 
that this measure should not be 
considered on its own and that 
other indicators—rfor relative im¬ 
port and wholesale prices and 
fdr unit labour costs—should 
also be examined. 

Indeed, officials stress Jnat if 
» single ’indicator is needed. 
Relative unit labour costs 

fadjusted for variations in pro¬ 
ductivity) should be used in most 

In 1976. all the measures im¬ 
proved substantially as. sterling 
fell and last year the opposite 
occurred. For the three relative 
price indicators, the whole of the 
I9T6 competitive advantage has 
now been eroded and the rela¬ 
tive export price index is now 
back to its 1966-67 leveL 

However, the indicator of 
relative unit labour costs has 
deteriorated much less than the 
others because of pay restraint 
and it is still significantly more 
favourable than in the earJy 

There is considerable contro¬ 
versy over the importance of the 
exchange rate for export per¬ 
formance. Mr. Denis Healey, the 
Chancellor, has said in the Com¬ 
mons that he helieves the im¬ 
pact uf the exchange rate on 
trade tends to he exaggerated. 
He noted that the improvement 
in the volume of export 0/ manu¬ 
factured poods prpdalcd the fall 
in sterling in 1976. *

THE STUCK market and ihe 
pound recovered yesterday 
a tier noun with the help of thc 
miners* pay decision. It had 
come under pressure earlier 
in the day. 

The uncertainly in the 

markets reflected concern over 
the pay policy and fears of an 
increase hi interest rates after 
ihe disturbing hanking figures 
published on Tuesriaj. 

Short-term rales in Ihe 

moucj markets wciti up 

yesterday. Rales on Treasury 
hills were pointing to a pos¬ 
sible rise of 1 or i Per cent, in 
tbe Bank of England's mini¬ 
mum lending rate to-morrow. 

Early in the day. tbe pound 
suffered from selling pressure 
in active markets. It dropped 
against the dollar to a low 
point of 61.9225, with the trade- 
weighted index nf its value 
against a basket of currencies 
railing to K5.S at noon. 

Laier, sterling picked up. 
with the market reporting that 
the authorities might have 
intervened at the tower levels. 
At the close, it stood at $1.9335. 
a fall of 10 points, with the 
index down from 66.3 to 66.0. 

Similarly, prices of gilt-edged 
securities and of ordinary 
shares showed a marked turn- 
round during the day. Tbe 
Financial times Ordinary 
share index ended wilh a gain 
or 4.7 at 466.4. 

Gilt-edged prices were lilt

Japan rejects 
U.K. plea on 
car imports 


I THE Society uf Motor Manufac- 

■ turprs and’ Traders failed to 
[obtain an undertaking that 
Japan-would freeze its 197S car 
'exports to Jhe U.K. at last year's 
j levels during one and a half 
I days of talks which ended in 
j Tokyo yesterriav. 

| The Japanese reply, sot out in 
i a joint com muni hue issued in 
iTokyo by tin- SMMT and the 
'Japanese Automobile Manufac- 
1 turers* Association, says that " it 
[ is impossible 10 make commti- 
: men is 10 any form of restriction 
jin terms uf quantity or market 
j share." 

I However. Japan's negative 
| reaction seems to have been 
tempered l>\ the admission ihnt 
1 the increased share captured by 
.Japanese producers in the U.K. 
[during 1977 was Inflated by 
special conditions that should 
jnoi recur in 197S—specifically 
jlhc labour troubles which cut 
I Britain's production by an esti¬ 
mated 400.000 cars. 

I The adoption of this loughter 
[line by Ihe Japanese after rwo- 

■ jnd-a-haif years of relatively 
! successful restraint, can be 
! expected to reactivate Parlta- 
: mentary and trade union 
[ pressure in Britain for import 
.controls on Japanese cars. There 
j a known to he- a group within 

! British Ley land which is pressing 
| for such restrictions. 

The news Trom Tokyo came 
just as U.K. registration figures 
for January were issued by the 
SMMT showing that Datsun, the 
biggest Japanese importer, had 
1 token ihe third position in the 
U.K. sales league with sales up 
from 4.600 Iasi year to 13.200— 
an increase from 4.0 to S.7 per 

Datsun easily outsold Chrysler 
1 (S.200: 5 4 per cent.) and Vnux- 
hail (fl.fiOn; 6A per cent). With 
lColt and Honda also making up 
'around in the month, the total 
! Japanese market share rose to 
[13 rr cent from 7.6 per cent 
in January 1977. 

The expans.'m in Japanese 
i sales from 8.700 cars to 19.900 

combined with sharp growth in 
registrations of Continental-made 
vehicles tup from 36.709 uniis 
to 50.800/ £0 push British car 
imports over the 50 per cent, 
mark for the first lime since last 

These figures were greatly 
boosted by Ford's import uf 
15.000 vehicles from Ireland. 
Spain. Belgium, and Germany, 
which enabled it to retain 
market leadership wilh 30 per 
cent, against Leyland's -1-4 pel - 

Asked in Tokyo whether he 
was satisfied with the results uf 
his talks with JAMA. Mr. David 
PI as tow. the president nf SMMT. 
said that he did nrtt know what 
more he could realistically have 
hoped For other than 
undertakings hy (he Japanese 
not to cause trouble for the 
British industry. 

The outcome of ine talks, m 
the simplest terms, would seem 
to l>e that Japan has moved away 
from its previous willingness to 
give unofficial commitments 
1 usually described as forecasts) 
about its future export per¬ 
formance in Britain and is now 
willing to say only that it will 
be careful nut r«» let its sales do 
“ serious" damage to ihe U.K. 

The Japanese are. however, 
showing increasing awareness of 
the need for caution in overseas 
markets. Mr. Seisi Kato. presi¬ 
dent of Toyota Motor. Japan’s 
largest vehicle manufacturer, 
was reported yesterday in the 
West German magazine Ann* 
Zeitung. us saying that J a pan 
would have no choice but to 
accept a reduction in exports. 

The SMMT. having failed to 
lie down Japan on (he question 
of market shares, now has the 
choice between accepting JAM .Vs 
general expressions of good 
faith or renewing its attempts tn 
get the British Government to 
put up import barriers.

OPEC turning away from dollar 


THE MAJOR oil-producing 
countries started to diversify 
I their international hank deposits 
1 otit .of dollars and into other 
■currencies more than four 
imoAtbs ago. This was before the 
[doirar's precipitous slide on the 
foreign .exchange markets. 

'- ‘According to-information on 
'International bunk deposits and 

: loans released yesterday by the 
Basle-based Bank for inter- 
: national Settlements, OPEC 
-members cut their dollar: 
'denominated dcposils with tnti*r- 
national banks by at least Slbn. 
jin.the third tiuarter of last year. 

At the same time they built up 
their non-doliar deposits with 
European banks by about SL4bn. 

It is unclear from the figures 
which currencies the funds were 
moved into. However, ihe funds 
are thought to have been in¬ 
vested fairly evenly in several 

The oil producers' decision 
could have played a part in 
precipitating the dollar's slide on 
the foreign exchange markets 
last autumn.. 

The*.BIS figures further confirm 
a shirt in tbe deployment of 
OPEC members' revenues from 

hank deposits to other invest¬ 

Although surplus revenues of 
OPEC members in the third 
quarter are thought to have been 
about 88bn., their deposits with 
the banks which report figures 
to the BIS-(all ihe world’s mosl 
important commercial banks) 
rose by only S400m. 

For the first time since the 
ori priee rises of 1973, OPEC is 
borrowing more than it deposits 
with the international hanking 
system For, by comparison with 
the S400m. of new deposits, bor¬ 
rowing rose by $2.2hn

LISBON. Feb. 8. 

PORTUGAL'S MAIN opposition 
party, the Social Democrats, to¬ 
night put the new Government 
to its first serious test by urging 
Parliament to reject the pro¬ 
gramme which Prime Minister 
Mario Soares presented last 
week. • 

Parliamentary debate on the 
new programme began this morn¬ 
ing with a bitter attack by Sr. 
Octavio Pato, a leading member 
of the Communist Party. He was 
warmly supported by his col¬ 
leagues as he criticised what he 
called the shameful alliance in 
government between Socialists 
and Christian Democrats. 

The speech followed a com 
munique issued by the Com¬ 
munist Party's central committee 
which described the programme 
of austerity measures as being 
inappropriate for the political, 
economic, financial and social 
situation in the country. 

The only defence for the Gov¬ 
ernment programme to-day came 
predictably from Professor 
Freitas do Amaral, the leader 
of the Christian Democrats, who 
said that the programme was 
capable of bringing the country 
out of its economic crisis.

Comecon: the consumer’s discontent grows stronger and louder 

EAST EUROPEAN officials 
report there is growing dis¬ 
content in a number of 
Comecon countries with bad 
economic conditions which could 
lead to popular protests if the 
situation worsens. 

The two countries singled out 
as the most volatile in Eastern 
Europe at present are Poland 
and Romania. However, officials 
from Warsaw and Bucharest 
strongly deny this. They argue 
there is far more serious dis¬ 
content in East Germany or 


But East German communist 
officials are especially concerned 
about what they describe as the 
“chaotic supply situation" in 
neighbouring Poland. Like a 
seismograph. East Germany is 
currently registering every new 
shortage in Poland of basic food¬

East Germans who have just 
returned from Poland speak of 
empty meat counters and the 
frequent absence of coffee and 
staple foods from supermarket 
shelves. They go so far as to 

tartly that the only reason why 
East Germany is economically 
better off than Poland is the 
“ well-known trading relation¬ 
ship they have with West Ger¬ 
many." The Poles also refer to 
the introduction of shops selling 
goods for West German money 


recall the 1970 riots aver food 
price increases which toppled 
the former Polish communist 
leader, Wladysiaw Gomulka. 

East Germans bare a healthy 
respect for Polish public opinion 
because, as one East German 
official explains, “ Poles react 
more spontaneously than we 
Germans do." They suggest that 
Poland’s current party leader, 
Edward Gierek, is largely re¬ 
sponsible for tbe economic re¬ 
versals his country has suffered. 
The East Germans note that it 
was he who placed Poland into 
heavy debt to the West by 
importing everything from the 
capitalist countries- 

Polish officials in their con-* 
yersatiaus with westerners reply 

in East Germany, without which 
many East Germans would not 
be able to buy the goods they 

In fact, the typical East 
German is described by the Poles 
as being filled with envy for his 
West _ German counterpart and 
dissatisfied with having to wait 
at least five years in East Ger¬ 
many for a car. Tbe Poles note 
how poor services are in East 
Germany und how difficult it is 
for young people to get a flat. 
The Pales, In fact, -are throwing 
back at the East Germans many 
of tbe same charges the Germans 
level at Poland. 

Other East Europeans are even 
more critical of the Inability, of 
the East German authorities 

to live with non-conformist 
writers and other intellectuals 
who are being forced to emigrate. 
This is felt to be leading to even 
greater disillusionment among 
young East Germans. The critics 
say that the East German com- 
munists have failed to raise a 
new generation of convinced 
socialists but instead, have 
produced “ highly trained auto¬ 
mata.” Young people in other 
East European countries, they 
assert, are far more open-minded 
and better able to cope with the 
world because they are not 
locked inside their country. 

Virtually all the East Euro¬ 
peans, except for the Romanians 
themselves, agree that Romania 
faces trouble if there is no'let-up 
in the present economic strains. 

As evidence of the growing 
militancy of Romanian workers, 
the Comecon officials point to the 
coalminers' revolt this past 
summer In the Western Carpa¬ 
thians. Some 30,000 miners work¬

Commissioner will he obliged 
lo consult in the exercise of 
his powers, except those relat¬ 
ing to certain specified sub¬ 
jects, which will in any case

discharge of his responsibility 
for one of the specified matters

The governing council would 
be empowered to forward

have to agree before this 
became law. 

Below the governing council 
the Commissioner would 
establish committees with 
responsibilities in specific 
fields, such as health, educa¬

The proposed council would 
be presided over by the

would be composed of 10 other 
members. It is understood that

two from each of three parties 
involved in the “ internal ”

No citizenship 
for blacks in 
S. African plan 

CAPE TOWN, Feb. 8. 
NO BLACK person will have 
South African citizenship when 
the Government’s homelands 
policy has gone into effect. 
Dr. Connie Mulder, the Mini¬ 
ster of Bantu (black) Admini¬ 
stration. told Parliament here 

The newly - appointed 
Minister’s statement brought 
an immediate riposte from the 
opposition leader, Colin Eglin, 
who .said nothing could pose a 
greater threat to the country’s 
stability and security (ban 
“ this dangerous dream.” 

Dr. Mulder, speaking yesler- 
' day in the first parliamentary 
session since elections last 
November, said that when the 
ruling National Party’s policy 
had been carried ont fully, it 
would not be South Africa's 
responsibility to accommodate 
blacks politically. He said he 
did not wish to bide this fact— 
“ that is the mandate we got” 

- Another opposition figure. 

- Mr. Vause Raw, leader of the 
small New Republic Party 
i(NRP), interjected: “ That’s 
your dream, that's your night¬ 
mare.” t 

. South . Africa has already 
declared that two black home¬ 
lands, • . Transhel and 
Bdphathatswano, are com¬ 
pletely independent eoontries. 


Red Sea port ‘under attack’ 


sive in tbe Horn of Africa into 
Somali territory yesterday with 
air attacks on the northern 
regional capital or Hargcisa and 
the Red Sea port of Berbers, 
according to tiic official Somali 
news agency Sonnn. 

Regional officials reported that 
four Soviet-made MiG 2l’s and 
American-built F-5*s strafed the 
port and iwo attacked Hargeisa 
but there were do reports of any 
casualties. In Washington, the 
State Department said that 
Russian pilots were known to be 
among 1,000 Soviet military per¬ 
sonnel in Ethiopia. 

The raids were the first 
reported ones since the start of 
the major Ethiopian thrust to 

regain Somali-held territory. 

It Is fihe second time the 
Ethiopians have raided Berbera 
hut the seventh attack on Har- 
geisu. Earlier attacks were 
sporadic and said to have caused 
little damage. 

Somali official*! said ihc 
raiders were repulsed by Somali 
air defences but the raids are 
further evidence of the lotal 
superiority of Ethiopian foms 
in the air, reinforced, according 

to Western intelligence sources, 
by the arrival of a further 40 to 
60 Russian-built aircraft 
The accuracy of tho shelling 
in the latest air raids and the 
heavy artillery bombardment on 
Sunday is duo to the presence of 
Russian and Cuban pilots, claim 
the Somalis. 

The Somali forces admit that 
they have been dislodged from 
some positions in the Ogaden 
after the six-month war which 
left them in command of some 
80 per cent, of the area but with¬ 
out tile strategically vital towns 
of Harar and Dire Dawa. The 
Somalis claimed that 42 

Terror toll put at 700 


AN ETHIOPIAN official to*day 
rejected claims that human 
rights had been violated in a 
campaign of “ red terror ” which 
is believed u» have led to the 
deaths of 700 people in Addis 
Ababa in the past three months. 

The red terror campaign was 
officially declared last November 
in response tu a wave of what 
is called here “while terror”— 
a wave nf assassinations of 
Govern men i ofiu-ials and mem¬ 
bers of political organisations 
supponinc ihe ruling military 
council, or Derg. Though the 
red terror Hjs diminished in 
intensity in the past few weeks, 
killings, arrests and a process of 
rehabilitating former “counter 


revolutionaries and reaction¬ 
aries” are continuing. 

Yesterday. 1 saw the body of 
a young man who bad been shot 
in the head and chest lying on 
the pavement of one of the city's 
main streets. He had apparently 
heen left there as a warning to 
others. Each nigh! one can hear 
a few burst of gunfire. 

Although official figures are 
not available, diplomatic sources 
estimate that as many as 700 
people have died and several 
thousands have been arrested in 
the campaign which is the latest 
of several in the pasi year or so. 
Many of those arrested have 
reportedly been released, how¬ 

Ethiopian tanks of Soviet origin 
were destroyed m battles to the 
north of Dire Dawn. 

The Western Somali Libera¬ 
tion Front < WSLFJ has confirmed 
earlier reports that the Ethiopian 
forces had launched a two- 
pronged offensive out of the 
ancient city of Harar, which 
commands the main pass through 
the mountains, and the industrial 
centre and airbase of Dire Dawa. 
It suid that its men in the 
Ogaden made tactical with¬ 
drawals under bombardment by 
jets, tanks, artillery and “Stalin 
organ” multiple rocket launchers. 
• Johu VVorrall adds from 
Nairobi: Brigadier Joseph Garba. 
Nigerian .External Affairs com¬ 
missioner took Ethiopian peace 
proposals to Mr. Siad Barre the 
Somali president yesterday. 

Brigadier Garba is the actinc 
mediator for The Organisation of 
African Unity. Asked what 
success be had in mediating he 
>aid: ‘‘.At least both sides are 
talking to me.” 

The U.S. and the other four 
members of ;he UN Security 
Council favour an internal 
African settlement negotiated by 
tbe OAU. 

Cambodia in 
new fighting 

it had repelled a major Viet¬ 
namese attack across its border 
and scorned the latest ceasefire 
call from Hanoi. 

In one uf the biggest battles 
in the border war between the 
two Communist States, Cambodia 
said several hundred Vietnamese 
troops were killed or wounded 
and 17 tanks destroyed yester¬ 
day in the Mekong delta.

they penetrated about A kilo¬

More snags 
for planned 
$3Q0m. loan 
to Pakistan 

By David Houscgo 

A SiUHJm. commercial hank tu Pakistan lo have been 
provided under a Government nf 
Iran guarantee, winch ihe Pakis¬ 
tan regime has been counting un 
lo ease its balance or j.ciymcnis 
crisis, appears to have cud imo 
furtiicr snags. 

Senior officials in Islamabad 
were last week confidenl that the 
loan, for which Citibank i*i tin? 
lead manager, was going ahead. 
Banks invoked in the syndievaon 
say their understanding is that 
it has again been shelved. 

An indication of ihe serious¬ 
ness nf Pakistan’s present pay¬ 
ments position is that the Govern¬ 
ment has asked Western donors 

whft arc members of the Aid to 

Pakistan consortium Jor a further 
debt rescheduling. The tunsnr-

Tin; initial delay :n the com¬ 
mercial bank loan occurred 
earl:, last year when banks drew 
hack from the deal because of 
the mounting political violence in 
the country before the March 
general election.

A PACKAGE of proposals put 
forward by Britain for a solution 
to the Belize issue is “broadly 
acceptable ” to Guatemala, which 
would be prepared to drop any 
further claim on the colony if 
au agreement can be reached 
along the lines suggested by the 
UJv. This was said yesterday 
by two Guatemalan Foreign 
Ministry advisors vis tins London. 

They indicated that the central 
suggestion put forward inform¬ 
ally by Britain was for the 
cession of about 300 square miles 
of land in southern Belize to 
Guatemala, plus some small off¬ 
shore islands and a substantial 

^Howeverfilr. George Price, the 
Premier of Belize, bas repeatedly 
rejected any cession of land- His 
stand this week received fresh 
support from the Prime Ministers 
of the Bahamas, Barbados, 
Grenada. Guyana and Trinidad 
and Tobago. Britain, for its 
part, has stressed that it will do 
no deal which is not approved 
by the people of Belize. 

The two Guatemalan officials 
—Sr. Luis Rend Mendoza and Sr. 
Jorge Skinner-Lee, members of 
the Guatemalan negotiating 
team—said that their'Govern¬ 
ment was waiting to receive a 
modified set of British sug¬ 

These modifications were 
understood to include a British 
suggestion, raised in talks in 
Washington last week, for a 
group of countries to lake on 
responsibility 'for guaranteeing 
the territorial integrity of an 
Independent Belize. 

The two officials said that their 
Government was anxious for an 
early solution to the Belize issue, 
in the final months of the presi¬ 
dency of Gen. Kjeli Laugerud. 
because a new Government would 
take office in July and might 
adopt a tougher stance. 

They argued that the fact that 
a presidential election was to 
take place shortly was evidence 
that Guatemala was not a re 
pressive military dictatorship 
However, a report released in 
London this week by the Latin 
American Bureau research 
organisation said that part of 
the motivation behind Guate¬ 
malan threats against Belize was 
But the | the regime's need to ** create an 
issue to distract the Guatemalan 
people from the repression and 
injustice in their own country.’* 
The report claimed that Gen. 
Laugerud had come to office 
through electoral fraud, and that 
people who protested against the 
Government “ disappeared " or 
were tortured and murdered— 
the victims of “ Right-wing death 
squads whose activities are offici¬

boom—social, political and econ¬ 
omic. Walter Pintos Risso. a 
former (1967-1972) public works 
minister of Uruguay who is to¬ 
day (he biggest builder in Punta 
del Este. explains why. 

" A kind of lethargy which 
>otiled on the resort after 1971 
was dispatched by a sudden 
affluence of investors, especially 
.European investors.” Sr. Risso 

“Prices were low, considering 
wbat Punta del Este bas to offer. 
Alsn the exchange market was 
freed in Argentina. A buyer’s 
market came into being. Punta 
del Este was sleeping and woke 
up two years ago.” 

As for tbe European investors, 
another Punta del Este builder, 
Albino Musante, says they are 
mostly Germans and Italians. 

cent of investors in tlie area. 
Punta del Este has been an 
“Argentine resort” for a very 
long time, having very little to 
do with the rest of Uruguay. 

Punta del Este is about equi¬ 
distant between Argentina and 
the other rich South American 
giant, Brazil. Now that Uruguay 
has completed its Ruta 9 to the 
border with Brazil, tourists can 
drive to the Uruguayan resort 
on first-class highways all the 

The purchasing power of 
Urngnyan workers fell by 8 
per cent, in 1977, tbe sharpest 
decline in three years, the 
economic bulletin Oikos re¬ 
ported yesterday, AP-DJ re¬ 
ports from Montevideo. On 
. average, Uruguayan workers 
earn the equivalent of $ 100 - 
S120 a month. Their purchas¬ 
ing power has been declining 
steadily since 1968. It fell by 
7.7 per cent, in 1976, when in¬ 
flation was officially reported 
as 40 per eent. 

Argentines and the Brazilians, 
are the Paraguayans. The Para¬ 
guayan dictator, Alfredo Stroess 
ner—who will be elected presi- 
deut-for-llfe next Sunday, is 
frequent visitor. 

Value estimates of buildings in 
construction or planned for im¬ 
mediate construction on the 
headland, and on the wooded 
approaches to it, range from 
S220m. to S500m. Construction of 
four tourist villages near the 
headland is about to begin. The 
promoters of one of these, called 
Terrazas de Man antiales.. 15 
minutes by car rrom Punta del 
Este, arc emphasising its 
privacy and isolation—and 
superb golf links, two casinos, 
and house parties enlivened with 
French ebampagae. 

Builder-architect Pintos Risso, 
at the age of 70, bas plans for 

the resort's future. An airport 
which could take big jets is 

The Arabs have also gone in as 
early as 19BS, in fact, when Arab 
money financed the construction 
of Opus-Alfa building in Punta 
del Este. 

The biggest investors in Punta 
del Este. however, are still the 
Argentines, who once all but 
monopolised the resort. They 
apparently make up about 75 per 

way. from tbe North of Brazil: 
Brazil's Ruta Internadonal 471, 
part of the Panamerican High¬ 
way, links up with Uruguay’s 
Ruta 9 at ChuL 

Brazilian-made cars, especially 
with licence plates from the 
southern Brazilian cities of Sao 
Paulo and Porto Alegre, are now 
much in evidence in and around 
Punta del Este. The third big¬ 
gest investors there, after the 

sorely needed, he says. Then the 
big European companies such as 
Bayer. Philips and Mercedes- 
Benz could send their personnel 
to Punta de! Este on holiday in 
shifts during the European 
winter—Uruguay's summer*—and 
keep their factories working the 

Many are asking whether the 
resort — which -bas 7,000 
permanent residents and was 
visited hy 150,000 tourists last 
season—might not soon turn into 
a boomerang for those who have 
invested there. Land values are 
still increasing, but at a slower 
rate. Sr. Risso thinks they should 
level off in about two more years.

Mr. "Frederick Hush Sasse.

claim between. Sasse and ERB

Sasse syndicate until a complete 
report ha 5 been prepared by 
Graham Miller and Co., leading 
international loss adjusters and 

insurance investigators. Mr. Bob 
Bishop of Graham Miller and Co. 
said yesterday that a report 
would be completed towards the 

end of this month. 

“We have been working .on

November." Mr. Bishop added.

IRB's solicitors, Elborne 
Mitchell, said yesterday that they 
were reserving rRB's legal posi¬ 
tion until the report was com¬ 
plete. “We will not make an 
attack on the validity of the 
reinsurance until the investiga¬

partner Mr. Stephen MitchelL 
Any insurer can deny liability

PRIVATE housebuilding output 
in 1978 got off to a good start, 
according to the National House 
Building Council. 

The figures come as a welcome 
contrast to the private housing 
sector’s performance towards the 
end of 1977, a year in which 
house building output fell to one 
of its lowest points for over a 

FORD wfll have lost more than 
20,000 Escorts worth £45 m. by 
to-morrow night because of a 
strike by 1,000 press room 
workers at its Halewood plant on 

Ford has laid off 1Q.0QQ men at 
Hale wood and a further 1.700 at 
is Southampton factory. If the 
strike, now drawing to the end 
of its fifth week, goes on, it will 
affect Ford’s main UJi plant at 
Dagenham and could cripple 
Ford’s efforts to maintain its 30 
per cent share of the UJv.

The president of IRB, Dr. Jose 
Lopes de Oliveira, is expected in 
London later this month. 

The NHBC says that contrac- 
) tors began tvork on 10.84S homes 
'during January against only 
18,300 in the previous month and 
17.500 in the same month of 1977. 

Claim about safety 
review of gas plant 


According to the NHBC, the 
performance represents the best 
January output since 1973 and is 
10 per cent above the January 
average for the last five years. 
It remains, however. 13 per cent, 
below the average January out¬ 
put recorded in the preceding 
five year period. 

The NHBC estimates that 
private sector completions dur¬ 
ing January totalled 122S5. com¬ 
pared with 12.400 in December 

The issue behind the stoppage 
is. for the employees, the classic 
one of production line tedium. 
Ford management sees it as one 
of stamping out “inefficient and 
counter-productive ” customs and 

The strike started on January 
9 after the breakdown of six 
weeks of talks on a Ford plan 
designed to end certain work 
practices in the body plant press 

The nine-point Plan, described 
by Ford as “a set of working 
guidelines," is: 

1— The men must work to the 
speed of the production lines; 

2 — No automatic rest period 
every hour. Prodoction iines 
are to stop only when the rafe

A HARD contact lens that is 
gas-permeable has come through 
a serifs of laboratory and user 
tests in the u.K. and is expected 
to be more widely available 
through opticians this spring. 

The lenses, which are claimed 
to be more durable than soft 
lenses but more comfortable and 
less prone to causing irritation 
than ordinary hard lenses, are 
being made under the brand 
name of Hartflex by the German 
company Woblk-Contact-Lifisen. 

They use cellulose acetate 
butyrate (CAB) which is claimed 
to have superior “wetting" 
characteristics, be less brittle, 
and have greater thermal con¬ 
ductivity than its competitors. 

The life of these lenses is ex¬ 
pected to be as long as an ordi¬ 
nary hard lens, but the slightly 
softer surface means that more 
care has lo be taken in hand¬ 
ling to avoid scratching—the 
surface is slightly hydrophilic, 
absorbing about 2 per cent, 

Prices are likely to fall be¬ 
tween those for hard and soft 
lenses. There are expected to be 
four competitors in the field this 
year, three from Germany and 
one from the U.S. 

Because of the hydrophilic 
quality of CAB Haridex, the 
developer has devised a com¬ 
puter-calculated table of revised 
fitting measurements which allow 
for the change in shape of the 
lens on the eye when it tabes up 
the water content. 

The combination of the wet¬ 
ness and permeability with Lbe 
durability of CAB is thought to 
be an important factor, particu¬ 
larly when fitting patients with 
sensitive eyes or subject to higher 
than normal irritation due tu 
oxygen deprivation of the cornea. 

The difficulty wj fh CAB has 
been the changes in dimensions 
of the finished lens which could 
lead to large alterations m curva¬ 
ture with latbe-cut lenses of 
normal thickness as they under¬ 
went hydration. The new lenses 
are manufactured by compression 
moulding between quartz glass 
dies ‘ to a thickness pre¬ 
programmed to take account of 
subsequent hydration. 

Because of the water content 
the lenses are expected to be 
suitable for all-day wear.

EQUIPMENT developed by the 
Central Electricity Generating 
Board for making accurate 
measurements of residual 
stresses in steel and many other 
materials, is being manufactured 
by Fra nkl in-St oiler. 

It makes measurements by 
centre-hole technique using 
Micro - Measurements residual 
stress rosette gauges. The 

required hole depth is less than 
I.S mm. thus measurements can 
be made on many operational 
components as well as experi¬ 
mental structures. 

Accuracies better than ±S per 
cent in equal biaxial stress 
fields reducing to ^4 per cent, 
in uniaxial stress fields are 
normal. The high accuracy is 
achieved by using an air-abrasive 
process to cut circular holes and 
a high quality optical hole align¬ 
ment and measuring unit. 

Equipment is portable to meet 
site requirements. Depending nn 
application, between four and 
eight measurements can be made 
per day.

There was a desert temperature that exploded 
a thermometer in ihe cab. 

There were rivers to ford, and roads where the 
underbellies of the Sheipas grounded again 
and again. 

There were freezing nights and oxygen-thin air. 

And yes, there were problems with the Sherpas. 

The extraordinary thing is that they were so 
minor and so easily fixed. 

Overall petrol consumption was 19.02 mpg. 
which, considering the loads and the roads, was no 
less remarkable than the Truck Magazine figure. 

Oil consumption was a little over one gallon 
per vehicle throughout the whole trip. 

Team member. Peter Thornton, summed it up* 
“Both vehicles were verv comfortable to drive. 

and eveu after our longest day—over 1,000 Km 
tlirough Afghanistan—there was no fatigue due to 
the seatiug arrangements.. -I was sad to part 
with such reliable vehicles that had served the team 

so well

Tories beaten in

Ministers hit snags 
in search for new 
referendum formula 

Fierce attack oii Executive attitudes

AN OPPOSITION bid to give 
British businessmen working in 
other EEC countries, and their 
wives, who have previously heen 
entitled to vole in Parliamentary 
elections in the U.K. an oppor¬ 
tunity lo participate in Britain’s 
first Euro-poll failed in the 
Commons last night. 

After a debate which cut 
across party lines, a Conserva¬ 
tive amendment to the European 
Assembly Elections Bill, which 
would have extended the fran¬ 
chise to indude British business 
communities in other EEC coun¬ 
tries. was defeated by 160 votes 
to 149. Government majority 11. 

Mr. Douglas Hurd, u Conserva¬ 
tive spokesman on European 
affairs, speaking on the final day 
uf the Bill’s committee stage, 
described those covered bv the 
amendment as the “spearhead” 
of the British effort in Europe. 
“On their efforts depend, in part, 
our chances of making a success 
of the partnership in Europe to 
which we now belong. Tbov feel

part of their lives working in 
the U.K. should be barred from 
voting in the elections for the 
European Assembly because 
they were now working abroad 
in another EEC country. 

Mr. Nicholas Budgen (C., Wol¬ 
verhampton SW). said he would 
vote against the amendment, 
because, if approved, it would 
clearly be seen as an important 
step along the road towards a 
federal Europe. 

He wanted to see the elec¬ 
torate for the European 
Assembly elections voting for 
people whose primary duty was 
to uphold the interests of the 
British nation state. 

Outright opposition to the 
amendment was also expressed by 
Mr. Enoch Powell (UXJ Down S.). 
who said it raised the question 
of whether an attempt should 
be -made to introduce, however 
partially, the principle of terri¬ 
torial voting. If the amendment 
were approved, it would inevit¬ 
ably reliect on the law govern¬ 
ing' Parliamentary representa¬ 
tion at Westminster. 

Mr. Brynmor John, Home Office 
Minister of State. ur?ed MPs to 
reject the amendment on the 
grounds that it was an attempt to 
change the electoral law without 
reference to the well-tried pro¬ 
cedure of a Speaker's conference. 

He insisted that it would be 
impossible to make the change in 
respect of elections to the Euro¬ 
pean Assembly without having 
some “ potential repercussions on 
the internal franchise.” 

There was ironic laughter from 
both sides of the House when 
Mr. John stated: “It is not that 
I have taken a fixed view against 
the extension of the franchise.” 
He went on to explain that the 
Government's fixed position was 
that such a change should have 
proper consideration by the nor¬ 
mal process. 

It was because of the potential 
domestic repercussions that the 
Government believed it would be 
wrong to try to have a “ one-off 
job " in relation to the elections 
for the European Assembly.

PERSUASION and trust would 
be the main basis of the next 
Conservative Government's 
approach to industrial relations, 
Mr. James Prior, the party’s 
employment spokesman, said yes- 

The Conservatives would want 
to amend specific aspects 
present law but only after close 
consultation with those affected, 
he told a London seminar 
organised by Opinion Research 

“ Our approach will be even- 
handed and the key components 
. . . will be persuasion, educa¬

The unions, like management, 
now faced a period in which 
they would have to adjust to 
change, be said. The implica¬ 
tions of the labour laws passed 
between 1974-76 had yet to per¬ 
meate through to most trade 
unionists and a real debate was 
now developing on tbe Future of 
pay bargaining. 

With the rapid growth of 
white-collar onions, the composi¬ 
tion and nature of the union 
movement itself was in a state 
of flux. 

Mr. Prior said that the real 
question was no longer whether 
the next Conservative Govern¬ 
ment could work with the unions 
but- what future role the unions 
saw for themselves. 

He added: "This raises a whole 
host of related issues, from the 
closed shop to wildcat strikes, 
from mass picketing to restric¬ 
tive practices, and from second¬ 
ary blacking to secret, ballots for 
union elections. 

But the unions are unlikely 
to come up with constructive 
answers to these problems if 
any Government hunches sweep¬

these reforms affect industrial

dollars which exceeded the whole value of all 1976. They have just estab¬

Applications are required from people aged 3CH15 who are financially fully- 
qualified, and who can demonstrate practical experience in the Commodity 
Trading world, or from a related position in Merchant Banking. This new 
venture offers a real career prospect for people who are imaginative, flexible

conventional “social package” benefits.

Given the very nature of most

major changes would occur over¬

practices would gradually' take 
business away from the more 
moribund organisations and in¬

ties would exist for much faster 
growth by new entrants to the 
market, or organisations able to 
bear the undoubted strains of 
rapid expansion. 

One possible approach when 
looking at possibilities in this 
area is to examine the experi¬ 
ence of the U.S„ where the 
Supreme Court ruled recently 
that a ban on advertising by 
lawyers was unconstitutional 
The New York Board of Regents 
has gone even further by ruling 
that doctors and dentists can 
advertise as well, and the New 
York papers have written about 
some quite spectacular success 
stories since these rulings took 
effect. One New York dentist 
was quoted as saying: “Since I 
began advertising my practice

The theoretical benefits to the

is there that prices would really

tbe U.S. experience to act as'a 
guide, but same quite detailed 
conclusions can be drawn from 

Some States in the U.S. have 
allowed advertising by opticians 
and pharmacists for many years: 
others have banned advertising. 



MARCH 1 1978 

The Financial Times proposes to publish a survey on World Defence Industries on March 
1st, 1978. The provisional editorial synopsis is set out below. 

Despite attempts by some countries to cut defence spending, directly, and to reach strate¬ 
gic arms limitation agreements; defence remains one of the world’s biggest industries, col¬ 
lectively accounting for outlays of well over $300bn. a year. Demand especially for 
conventional weapons, continues to grow', especially in tbe countries of the Third World, 
and there is fierce competition for these markets. 

In emphasis In recent years towards conven* 
tional, as opposed to nuclear weapons has 
created major new opportunities for the world's 
big armaments manufacturers. In the UK., the 
effect of cuts in home defence spending and 
limitations on some overseas markets, such as 
South Africa, has forced the defence industries 
to seek new business elsewhere, such as the 
Middle East, South America and South-East 

Deep concern has been expressed about the cuts 
in U.K. defence spending, and their effect on 
the Alliance, at a time when the Warsaw Pact 
is building up ; its conventional forces. At the 
same time, NATO has a major problem in seek¬ 
ing greater standardisation, both to get the best 
value for money and to improve military 

THE U.S. POSITION While seeking a new SALT 
agreement with the Soviet Union, the U.S. 
remains the Western World’s biggest arms 
builder and supplier. The restrictions on arms 
sales imposed by President Carter do not yet 
seem signidcantly to have diminished the 
overall volume of business in weapons of all 
kinds, which is likely to rise this year. 

THE WARSAW PACT Defence spending 
remains very high, especially on conventional 
weapons, on which there has been great 
emphasis in recent years. The shift has caused 
a considerable reappraisal of Western defence 
thinking, and forced a comparable shift in 
emphasis towards conventional forces. 

What progress has there been so far in the 
search for a new SALT agreement? What has 

happened to earlier ideas for Mutual and 
Balanced Forces Reductions (MRFRi? What 
would the likely effect of such an agreement 
be on the world’s defence industries? 

THE MIDDLE EAST This continues to be an 
area of keen competition for the major arms 
manufacturers, and some major new develop¬ 
ments are in prospect for example, the creation 
bv the Arab Military Industrial Organization of 
an indigenous arms-production capability. At 
the same time, some Western countries, such 
as the U.K. and the U.S., are helping substan¬ 
tially to develop the Royal Saudi Air Force 
and other armed forces in the area. 

CHINA’S GROWING ROLE Although little is 
heard of China’s armoury, it is substantial, ami 
growing, with the help of Western countries. 
AFRICA The emphasis upon the establishment 
of weU-equipped and well-trained military 
forces has been a feature of many of the 
rapidly developing countries in Africa’, and the 
uncertain situation in some parts of the 
continent has led to a substantial arms trade. 
NUCLEAR WEAPONS In recent years, there 
have been some significant new developments 
in nuclear weapons, with increasing capability 
to provide smaller, tactical, weapons whilst 
increasing the destructive potential of bigger 

ELECTRONICS Spearheading much of the new 
developments in defence engineering and tech¬ 
nology has been the development of new 
electronic techniques which are developing into 
major markets for the world’s defence indus¬ 
tries. Many of the techniques coming out of the 
electronics industries are themselves developed 
from the necessities of defence research.

k« JiV: 

of protectionism 

BY TERRY DODSWORTH, Motor Industry Correspondent 


THE MINERS' decision to settle 
their wage claim within the 10 
per cent guidelines is a con¬ 
siderable triumph for the Gov¬ 
ernment's counter - inflation 
programme. The policy of firm¬ 
ness in the public sector appears 
to be paying off. though the 
challenge from the power 
workers is still on the table. By 
contrast tile Government's 
approach to the private sector, 
involving a series of improvisa¬ 
tions to suit particular situa¬ 
tions, is increasingly open to 
question. The latest ot these 
improvisations, which has raised 
a predictable storm of protest, 
is presumably intended not only 
lu make its policy more effective 
but to make it appear more 

Ministers can argue that they 
are free to chouse from the 
various competitors for a state 
contract the firm which best 
conforms to their conception of 
the national interest, in particu¬ 
lar with respect to iis readiness 
to observe the incomes policy 
guidelines. They can point out. 
too. that, here as in the U.S., 
scale contracts often contain 
clauses requiring the contractor 
tn observe certain statutory re¬ 
quirements. At present, fur 
example, they regularly demand 
observance of the 12-month rule. 

Whether or not the new pro¬ 
posal increases the Govern¬ 
ment s ability to control infla¬ 
tion remains to he seen. What 
seems beyond doubt is that it 
will aggravate in rv.o ways the 
main disadvantages ««f exist'nj 
practice. It will rend to make 
the pay structure of industry 
more rigid still, and it will 
increase the arbitrariness with 
which the slate dispenses its 
benefits to industry. 


The gradual return to greater 
flexibility of pay structures, 
which was expected and in¬ 
tended to be the characteristic 
feature of the current bargain¬ 
ing season, has been largely 
frustrated by the way in which 
Ministers themselves empha¬ 
sised the 10 per cent, figure. 
This was meant to be an 
average increase in earnings. It 
has come instead to be regarded 
as a minimum inerease'in basic- 
pay and. because so few people 
have been willing to settle for 
less, the Government has come 
to insist that nobody for. at 
least, not many people) should 
settle for more. 

The effect of this has been to 
narrow differentials: freeze ex¬ 
isting pay structures whether or 
not they are satisfactory; create 
labour shortages: and encourage 
artificial movements of employ¬ 
ee? from one firm to another— 
quite apart From forcing em¬ 
ployers to devote more time 
than they can spare to thinking 
out ways of limiting the damage 
likely to be done to their busi¬ 
nesses. But now the Govern¬ 
ment is apparently determined 
To enforce the 10 per cent, 
figure on its suppliers more, 
rigidly than ever. With more’j 
and more talk of a continuing! 
pay policy, moreover, the appli- : 
cation of such a condition 
beyond raid-1978 becomes a 
question of some importance. 
The maintenance of a flat norm 
for pay increases would do im¬ 
mense damage. The policing 
of a more flexible norm, on the 
other hand, wmi'd present great 
administrative difficulties. 


The second way in which the 
Government is proposing to 
make a bad situation worse, 
however, is more fundamental. 
The White Paper of last 
summer did not lay down guide¬ 
lines for increases in individual 
wage rates or earnings, ad¬ 
mitted that tin- was not pos¬ 
sible. yet threatened sanctions 
against firms which entered into 
settlements quite dearly incon¬ 
sistent with the policies set out 
in the White Paper. The evil 
implicit in this approach has 
aimed out as expected: dis¬ 
crimination between one firm 
and another on grounds that 
cannot be questioned because 
they are not published but are 
determined ad hoc by bureau¬ 
cratic or political process 
behind dosed doors. 

The new proposal will in¬ 
crease the scope of the state 
to take arbitrary decisions 
against which there is no 
appeal. Although it has been 
conceived in the context of the 
current wage bargaining round, 
moreover, there is no obvious 
reason why the principle behind 
»r should .tot be exlended—to 
future phases of pay policy, 
perhaps, or to planning agree¬ 
ments. or to almost anything 
in the industrial field which the 
government of the day would 
like to achieve without having 
siatutory powers to do so. The 
da.iger of the precedent itself 
is so great that one should 
expect Ministers to acknowledge 
it. Having done so. they should 
have the courage to retreat. 

India and Iran 
get together 

Y ESTERDAY’S announce¬ 
ment from Tokyo indicat¬ 
ing that the Japanese car 
manufacturers will not accept 
any informal agreement to 
limit the. export sales to the 
U.K. this year, has both a par¬ 
ticular and a general signifi¬ 
cance. For the two main pro¬ 
tagonists, the Japanese and 
British motor industries, it 
means another period of acute 
trading uncertainty with the 
shadow of Government-backed 
import curbs looming in the 
background. But for the world 
car manufacturers, who have 
been watching developments 
with increasing fascination, it 
signifies another tottering step 
towards protectionism. 

Talks between the two coun¬ 
tries have taken on this dimen¬ 
sion because of the positions of 
Japan and the U.K as leading 
trading nations with a commit¬ 
ment to liberal trade policies. 
What is at stake is whether the 
L T .K.. under the threat of an 
imminent collapse of its own 
vehicle manufacturing sector, 
can head off the fast-growing 
.Japanese industry through 
diplomacy alone. If it cannot, 
jnd if the British Government 
.s forced to step in with restric¬ 
tive import measures, the whole 
sensitive structure of world car 
trading developed in the past 
20 years is threatened. 

Not all car manufacturers 
would be uphappy about a 
return to more restrictive trad- 
,pg patterns. Indeed, many 
;ook back to the way in which 
the motor industry was 
developed behind barriers of 
une kind or another with a 
;reat deal of nostalgia. Until 
the 1950s, this pattern of trad¬ 
ing was the norm for the 
industry. In Britain, for 
example, tariffs were introduced 
in 1915. and apart from a brief 
spell in the 1920s. stood -at 
between 22 per cent, and 33i 
per cent until the Kennedy 
Round negotiations. Japan, 
which had no car industry to 
speak nf at all until the 1950s. 
only began dismantling Us own 
tariffs in 1967. Although these 
are now down to zero, foreign 
manufacturers still complain 
about hidden barriers such as 
unnecessarily complex local 

Despite these trading limita¬ 
tions, there were plenty of op¬ 
portunities for overseas busi¬ 
ness after the last world war. 
European countries led by 
Britain, which emerged with the 
most intact vehicle industry, 
still had their old colonial terri¬ 
tories available, and gradually 
U.S. customers began to take 
note of the smaller. European- 
type vehicle. A great deal of 
the new capacity put down in 
the 1950s and 1960s. and in¬ 
creasingly in Japan during the 
later period, was dependent on 
these export markets: indeed, 
the disappearance of much of 
Volkswagen’s market in the U.S.

ATTEMPTS by Middle East or 
Asian slates to combine their 
economic muscle in some 
regional alliance have so often 
come unstuck that it w-nuld be 
premature to herald any new- 
grouping in South West Asia. 
But the partnership that seems 
to be developing between Iran 
and India makes a lot of sense 
and has broader political impli¬ 

Iran is a major oil producer 
with the wealth to carry 
through its ambitious indus¬ 
trialisation programme but des¬ 
perately short of skilled man¬ 
power as well as key natural 
resources from iron ore to food. 
It is geographically' isolated in 
That it has a hostile Communist 
neighbour to the north and a 
suspicious Arab world to the 
south. There is no obvious ex¬ 
port market at its backdoor for 
the output of its new industries. 
India, with its 600m. population, 
abundantly of trained man¬ 
power. shortage of energy but 
considerable natural resources 
and (at the momentl consider¬ 
able excess capacity in its en¬ 
gineering industry is in many 
ways a complementary power. 
In his recent visit lo Delhi, the 
Shah's main concern was to 
press this marriage forward. 

Future supplies 

The immediate outcome has 
been an impressive list uf agree¬ 
ments that at face value assure 
India large quantities of oil at 
no foreign exchange cost Iran 
will invest the receipts in Indian 
projects such as the develop¬ 
ment of the Rajasthan desert as 
a grain producing region and 
the setting up of a pulp and 
paper factory with a view to 
assuring itself of future supplies 
of these commodities. Beyond 
this India’s engineering indus¬ 
try will get a larger slice nf 
rail and power generation con¬ 
tracts in Iran of the type for 
which it has been competing 
elsewhere in the Gulf. Logic 
would suggest that the two sides 

could tarry these links much 
further by jointly developing, 
for instance, their car and trurk 
industries both of which are 
immensely inefficient. Iran also 
ha.? in India a ready market for 
its petrochemical goodv 

All this goes far heyunrl the 
tie-up between Iran. Pakistan 
and Turkey in the abortive 
Regional Co-operation for De¬ 
velopment (RCD). Repeated 
attempts to make this effective 
have foundered on the rivalry 
of competitive industries and a 
reluctance to take the risk of 
reducing tariff barriers. On the 
other hand it falls short of the 
Shah's much touted Asian Com¬ 
mon Market linking up South 
East Asia with the Middle East. 
Such a grand design is in any 
case too ambitious and too ob¬ 
viously a vehicle for enhancing 
the Shah’s own power. But a 
potential Irano-Indian axis does 
create a new bridge between 
the Middle East and South Asia 
that could strengthen the econ¬ 
omies of both and change the 
political and military balance of 
the region. 

Image of failure 

The loser from such a con¬ 
stellation is Pakistan. In the 
1960s it held its head high as an 
economic success beside both 
Iran and India. Now. Pakistanis 
see reflected in the mirror an 
image of political and economic 
failure and are understandably 
anxious at being reduced to a 
dependency of their two larger 
neighbours. Because of this 
there is strong hostility in 
Pakistan to granting Iran and 
India road and rail transit 
rights tlirough its territory that 
could further advance the 
growth of these economies. This 
is a short-sighted view in that 
Irano-Indian co-operation is 
likely to proceed apace what¬ 
ever stance Pakistan may take. 
Sadly it has been the tragedy 
of Pakistan’s history that too 
often it has turned its back on

the increase: io. British of new investment' 

A more sophisticated analysis 
of investment net of retirements 
in the last National Income Blue 
Book, suggests a more recent 
drop in quantity as well- as 
effectiveness of new investment 
since the middle 1970s, but data 
arc not available for inter¬ 
national comparison- It can 
hardly be a coincidence that 
while profitability has fallen in 
most countries, U.K. profit¬ 
ability has experienced a more 
spectacular downward leap than 
profitability elsewhere, and has 
at nearly all stages been bottom 
of the international league 

Is public spending (he culprit? 
The top right-hand table shows 
how many different plausible 
definitions of public spending 
there are. It could be argued 
that collective expenditure was 
anywhere between 20 per cent, 
and 70 per cent, of the national 
product. The trend movement 
shown in the second chart is 
more revealing. It suggests little 
overall upward movement since 
the late 1960s, but an acute 
bulge in 1973-75. which could 
not have come at a worse lime, 
as it affected the economy just 
when- the oil price explosion 
had reduced the real national 
income available for all pur¬ 

International comparisons 
suggest that share of taxation in 

the U.K. national product is 
pretty similar to the share in 
countries such as France or 
Germany and has been so far 
some years. But where there is 
so much smoke there usually is 
fire. The real cause for com¬ 
plaint is the very high rates of 
marginal tax both at the bottom 
and the top of the income scale. 
Reform at the top would cost 
nothing except political pride, 
and reform at the bottom much 
less than across the board re¬ 
ductions in the basic rate. 

Policy errors 

If I had to give a brief diag¬ 
nosis, it would be that deep- 
seated problems, which might 
have been on the way to gradual 
alleviation, wore aggravated 
afresh by the Great Inflation of 
the mid-1970s. Most policy 
errors, from the effects of nun- 
indexation on taxes, to mis¬ 
guided pay policies that 
squeezed differentials and 
priced people out of jobs, the 
massive subsidy of laine ducks, 
and the unemployment 
deterioration itself, sprang from 
the massive and unexpected 
nature of th3t price explosion. 

Why did -the money supply ex¬ 
plode? Not, ultimately, because 
of Competition and Credit Con¬ 
trol, but because of the mistaken 

establishment helief that U.K. 
economic problems were due to 
a mysterious affliction known as 
the balance of payments or the 
■■problem of sidling,” and that 

inflation was a political prob¬ 
lem to be tackled by controls 
or government-union diplomacy. 

The inuMTiational position of 
sterling magnified the lags be¬ 
tween cause and effect in fiscal 
and monetary policy, and thus 
made it easy to create a myth 
of malign international influ¬ 
ence leading to stop-go and low 
investment, and a misconceived 
view.that devices such as float¬ 
ing rates or sterling balances 
agreements i welcome »n their 
own right) would allow us a 
dash, for growth the easy way. 
by expanding “demand." 

Is North Sea oil to take their 
place in the new mythology? Or 
will the much more rapid re¬ 
action of the foreign exchange 
and domestic financial markets 
to monetary exce-s bring an 
influence for .-.anify which 
libraries fail or economic reason¬ 
ing could not hope to achieve?

sionals. Results have been very 
convincing;, they have contained 
-and in some areas reduced the 

number of secretarial and typing 
jobs, while at least maintaining 
the level of support. 

Secretaries and typists are 
probably tbe most non-profes- 
sionally managed group in busi¬ 
ness to-day—it is essential that 
they are managed professionally, 
which invariably increases their 
persona] job satisfaction, self- 
fulfilment and effectiveness. 

We now believe it is no longer 
simply a matter of cost and avail¬ 
ability of secretaries. One un¬ 
mistakable trend in all the 
advanced Western countries is 
the shift of employment from 
the land and manufacturing into 
offices. This is a direct result 
of increases in competitiveness, 
in the pace of change and 
development, and -in the produc¬ 
tive capacity of each industrial 
worker. All these generate a 
need for more and better in¬ 
formation, which is collected, 
evaluated and used by office 
employees of various types. 

There is a widely recognised 
need for better management, 
which implies providing man¬ 
agers with better support and 
facilities as well as training and 

In this environment the role 
of the Secretary as an "office 
wife ” which Mr. Rogaly so 
accurately describes, is a waste¬ 
ful anachronism. In many busi¬ 
nesses it is also a boring and 
frustrating way to earn money 
We have found that properly 
managed, motivated, trained and 
equipped, secretarial staff can 
make a significant positive con¬ 
tribution to the work of man¬ 
agers and professionals; more¬ 
over, contrary to any “ psycho¬ 
logical barriers," they are a very 
good source of recruitment for 
professional and managerial

Sir.—What a beautiful article 
on secretaries (January 3D. 
Many a time I have been up to 
my ears and had to stop every¬ 
thing to make coffee. Yet while 
doing a few weeks temporary 
work in a very go ahead place 
I found the man 1 was working

What it costs 
to buy petrol 

From the General Secretary, 

The Steel Industry Management 


Sir,—Your correspondent Mr. 
M. A. Finlay (February 7) may 
be interested to know that in 
April. 1977, an assistant blast 
furnace manager in the U.K. 
steelmaking industry had to 
work for some 25 minutes in 
order td earn enough to buy one 
gallon of 4-star petrol, whereas 
his opposite number in West 
Germany worked for some 131 
minutes, and Ip France [or some 
18 minutes. 

My Association would whole¬ 
heartedly support Mr. Finlay's 
submission that guidelines for 
managerial pay should be in line 
with the Common Market; in the 
steelmaking industry, the U.K. 
average middle management 
salary In 1976 was 80 per cent, 
midi in 1977 this had dropped 
to 69 per cent, in terms o( pur¬ 
chasing power of time worked.

10 !4 per cent. Sterling Foreign Currency Bonds 1988 : 


The Directors have declared an interim dividend of 3.3p 
per share (last year 3.0p) on the Ordinary and “A” Ordinary 
Shares, each of 25p, to shareholders on the register at ihe 
close of business on 31st March 197S. payable on 28th April 
1978. absorbing £620,719 (last year £564.290). 

Navigator and radar profits increased, though loweV profits 
on survey and records, a loss on T.V. and currency changes 
resulted in group pre-tax profits falling marginally below those 
of the corresponding period last year. Exports at £27.5 million 
were up by 21%. Profits for the 6 months do not include 
the group’s share of the results of associated companies. 

Present indications are that these trends, and especially 
the influence of the increased strength of sterling, will result 
in group profits of the year to March 197S being below ihose 
of the previous year. Large orders for electronic systems 
were received during thc firsr half year. The rate of inflow 
of such orders, which will bring substantial benefit in future 
years, has subsequently increased. 

8 th February, 1978. 

Rise in interest rates 

Bank of Ragland Minimum 

Lending Rate 6 $ per cent, 
(since January 6, 1978) 

Day-to-day credit was in 
adequate supply in the London 
money market yesterday, but con¬ 
ditions remained confused, with 
short-term fixed period interest 
rates rising quite sharply in early 
trading. Discount houses buying 
rates for toree-montb Treasury 
bills rose above 61 per cent, 
during the day. but eased to &rV 
6 i per cent, at the close, still 
pointing towards a small rise in 
Bank of England Minimum Lend¬ 

ing Rate at this week's Treasury 
bill tender. 

Banks are expected to carry 
over a slight surplus, since the 
authorities did not intervene. 
Discount houses paid up to ? per 
cent for secured call loans at the 
start, but closing balances were 
taken at 2f3 per cent Longer 
terra rates remained firm how¬ 
ever. reflecting the nervousness 
induced by the latest banking 
figures that suggest a further rise 
in the money supply. 

The call on 19J per ccnL- 

Treasury 1999 was toe only factor 
against the market, and this was 
outweighed by surplus balances 
carried over by the banks, a very 
large excess of Government 
disbursements over revenue pay¬ the Exchequer, and a ( 
fall in the note circulation. 

In the interbank - market over¬ 
night rates opened at 4$-5 per 
cent, and eased to 3-3J per cent., 
before rising to around 5 per cenL 
at the close. 

Rates in the tabic below are 
nominal in some eases.

Turnover and profits 

The profit before lex of the 5GB Group for the 
year ended September1977 was a record £8,247,000 
compared with £5.714,000 in 1976. Turnover 
increased to nearly £80 million compared with 
£63 million in 1976. 

The majority of the improvement in profit has 
been achieved from our U.K. operations, partly due to 
diversification into new fields. Overseas, the volume' 
of business has continued to expand and the total 
profit is up from £1.485 million to £1.550 million. 

Dividend Policy 

At the annual general meeting to be held on 
14th March 197 8. a final dividend of 2.754p per 
share will be recommended, payable on 11 th April 
1978, to shareholders on the register on 10th March 
1978. This, together with the interim dividend of 2.5p 
per share paid In October1977, results in a total 
dividend of 5.254p per share, the maximum allowed. 

It is regretted that the benefits of dividends are. 
Under the Government's present taxation system, 
shared so inequitably among our shareholders. Some 
institutional shareholders receiving a cash dividend 
of £1,000receive a total income of £1,515, whereas 
some individuaisharehalders with the same dividend 
'from the company receive an income of £30 only. The 
taxation of savings at up to 98% would be an iniquity 
even if there was no inflation. Whh inflation running 
at its present level, the tax charge is a severe and 
unfair wealth tax on the capital of individual 
shareholders. Steps should be taken immediately by 
the Government to reduce substantially the higher 
rates of tax, to abolish the investment income 
surcharge, and to Index fink capital gains tax. The 
present taxation system is a positive disincentive on 
individuals participating In equity investment. 

- The present limitation on dividends has 

resulted in the 1977 dividends being covered 3.78 
times. If Government restrictions are relaxed and 
; profits justify it it will be the board's intention to 
recommend a dividend with a lower cover for 1978. 


Group reserves are increased by £3,244,000, 
and in addition deferred tax which Is not expected to 
become payable in the foreseeable future has 
increased by over £3 million. The shareholders' funds 
and deferred tax now amount to almost £31 million 
even on an historicalaccounting basis. 4 

Consolidated Balance Sheet 

The group balance sheet shows a further 
'improved position with total assets increasing by £10 
million to £64 million. To obtain this increase, it was 
only necessary to finance £2.5 million from outside 

In looking at the individual figures on the 
=consolidated balance sheet there appear to have been 
significantly disproportionate increases in associated 
companies and in debtors, while materialsand 
equipment have increased by only 10 percent. In 
feet, these three sets of figures are not individually 
comparable from one year to the next, since 
; Substantial stocks of materials and equipment shown 
m the balance sheet in 1976 were sold to associated 
companies in 1977. This change in trading structure 
' resulted in some £2 million being transferred from 
' materials and equipment to debtors and investment in 
associated companies, and may be regarded as 
merely a difference in accounting treatment rather 
than a significa/n shift in balance sheet ratios. 

Provision for Bad Debts and 
Overdue Accounts 

. . Although the group results haveshown such ■ 

an encouraging improvement, the construction 
industry in most parts of the world where we bperatar 
is still in a depressed state, and there has again been a 
-distressingly high number of failures of building 

contractors. The group has had to absorb its share of 

such failures, although our insurance arrangement, 
credit sanction, and control procedures have stood 
up to the strain well. 

Inflation Accounts 

1977 sawthe rejection by the Institute of 
- Chartered Accountants of the Accounting Standards 
Committee's exposure draft 18 as an obligatory form 
of presentation for inflation accounts. 

This set-back for the movement towards 
Improved accountancy reporting is regretted, 
particularly as its replacement—an interim 
recommendation by the Accounting Standards 
• Committee—is an insipid and watered-down 
recommendation which is unlikely to satisfy anyone 
who is conscious of the seriousness of the situation. 

It is particularly disappointing that no 
recommendations on balance sheet presentation are 
now included,and thatlhe suggested gearing 
adjustment gives no indication of the real change in 
the yalueof shareholders'funds. 

In these circumstances, we believe it rightto 
continue to publish current cost accounts, developing 
the format we introduced last year, a presentation 
which meets the requirements both of exposure draft 
~1 Band the tetestinterim recommendation.

While our historic profits were £8.25 million 
our current cost profit on trading wou|d have been . 
£5.26 million. However the CCA profit for the year, 
together with the net surplus forthe year on the 
revaluation of assets, would have provided 
£7.304.000. After transferring £2.733,000 to 
revaluation reserve to maintain the real value of the 
group's assets, there would have been £5,484,000 
available for distribution, compared with £4,111,000 
in the historic accou nts. The earnings per share under 
current cost accounting would have been 26.5p per 
share (historic 19.5p) and the CCA dividend cover 
would have been 5.04 (historic 3.73). 

Accountancy Pronouncements 

There are now thirteen statements of standard 
accounting practice and five further statements 
which are expected to become mandatory in the near 
future.These requirements are placing a significant 
additional burden on the company and appear to be 
drafted without appropriate allowance being made 
for the special circumstances which arise in the 
construction and hiring sectors of the economy with 
which we are involved.The difficulties of presenting 
our business within the rigid classifications set out in 
the various pronouncements are significant and 
represent a real riskthat the ‘’true and fair view" 
concept will be sacrificed in favour of a formalised 
and perhaps inappropriate accounting presentation. 

Peter Cox Limited 

The stone-cleaning and restoration division 
regained its impetus of work after the severe effect of 
the drought in 1976 when a great deal of business 
was lost, curtailed or postponed. The i nternal cleaning 
of Canterbury Cathedral was a major contract 
undertaken this year. The damp proofing and 
woodworm division suffered from pressures on 
margins and produced lower results in consequence 
of this. 

Productivity/Profit Sharing 

The company’s employee Own As You Earn 
Scheme has been so successful that the directors had 
to declare that there were no shares available forthe 
scheme in 1977. As only a ve/y limited number of 
shares will be available in future years, the directors 
are now considering a longterm productivity/profit 
sharing plan. 

Hire Service Shops Limited 

Excellent results were achieved by Hire Service 
Shops Limited fully justifying the rapid build-up in 
trading outlets over the past few years, and the 
considerable funds committed to this company. 
Return on capital is now high and the company is. as 
predicted last year, contributing an important part of 
group profits. Further expansion is now under review 
consistent with maintaining a sound profit 

Review of Operations 
United Kingdom Companies 

Scaffolding (Great Britain) 

Scaffolding (Great Britain) Limited, our main 
operating company in the United Kingdom, had a 
much improved year. In the building equipment 
division, results were well maintained with the help of 
the successful introduction of our new scaffolding 
- system, Cuplok, both for hire and sale. 

In the contracts division, the improvements 
seen last year were further consolidated in the year 
under review with a significant increase in the volume 
of work obtained forthe petro-chemical and North 
Sea oil related industries. 

The results were a particularly good 
achievement, as in both divisions the amount written 
off profits for bad debts during the year was 
exceptionally high, reflecting the large number of 
failures in the construction industry at the present 

Overseas Companies 
Europe—Building Equipment 
Europe (Holdings) Limited 

There was the expected decline in profits from 
Europe this year although all companies performed 
well up to budgeted levels. SSH. our Dutch company, 
suffered from the continued decline in shipbuilding in 
Holland and also from a marked reduction of work for 
Hoogovens.the Dutch steel works. However, 
supplies for the building industry were well 
maintained and a creditable result was achieved 
tinder the prevailing conditions. 

Handep B.V., our small manufacturing 
company, which produces mobile towers, is making a 
successful entry into the non-operated plant hire 
business in Holland and recently the firm of Custers 
B.V. was acquired which produces hydraulic 
platforms, a product which is complementary to our 
existing tower production. Our German branch in 
Dortmund had a good year with increased 

Youngman Group Limited 

This group of companies had an excellent year 
with profits double those of last year. 

W. C. Youngman Limited did exceptionally 
well with Improvement in both volume and margin. 
Youngman System Building Limited were working 
throughout most of the year below the full capacity of 
their factory at Thame, but nevertheless increased 
their profitability. Youngman Fork Truck Hire Limited 
had an exceptional year. Their fleet of trucks was 
further expanded and utilisations were welt 

France—SGB S.A. 

This company continued to penetrate the 
French market and increase its volume of business 
substantially both in Paris and Marseille, our two 
operating depots. Profits were, however, reduced by 
two large bankruptcies—we have now obtained 
credit insurance in France. 

The share of our minority partner, Outinord 
S.A., was acquired during the year, making the 
company now a wholly owned subsidiary. 

Contractors' Services Group 

Our plant hire group of companies made 
excellent progress with exceptional contributions 

North America—SGB 
Universal Builders Supply, Inc. 

The company had a good year abroad in its 
activities in both Iran and Saudi Arabia. The homo 
market was still dull but there have recently been 
signs of a revival and better utilisation of our hire 

Copies of the Report and Accounts maybe obtained from SGB Group Limited, 
' Mitcham, Surrey, CR44TQ.Tef:01-640 3393. 

South Africa—SGB Building 
Equipment (Pty.) Limited 

Despite difficult trading conditions the 
company did well to maintain a similar result to last 
year. The hire shops subsidiary there, although small, 
doubled its profits in the year, trading out of four 
locations. Schemes ro assist black employees to 
purchase their own homes and payfortheir 
children's education are being introduced. 

Australia—SGB Building 
Equipment Pty. Limited 

The building industry in Australia was 
bedevilled by strikes, particularly in Melbourne. The 
operations of our company were severely disrupted 
and a significant trading loss for the year resulted. 

Channel Islands—SGB 
(Channel islands) Limited 

The company traded satisfactorily during the 
year. The opportunitiesfor expansion in the islands 
are limited but a successful entry was made into the 
business of the hire of refuse skips in Jersey. 

from MCC Plant Hire Limited which operates from 
Cornwall and also from those companies operating in 
London and the South East. 

Demand for the large operated machines 
remains active and there has recently been some 
improvement in the demand for smaller non-oparated 

Republic of Ireland—Scafco 

This company returned to profitability in 1977 
and this improvement should be maintained. Ther' 
are signs of some resurgence in the general 
construction climate in Ireland, although tiiere are 
few major projects being undertaken at present. 

Sika Contracts Limited 

The company had a poor year with pressure on 
margins and work in the U.K. somewhat patchy 
geographically. The Scottish region had a particularly 
bad trading year. 

SGB Export Limited 

Direct exports from the U.K. were nearly 
double those of the previous year and profitability 
was well maintained, major direct export markets 
being the Middle East, Scandinavia and West Africa. 

Our joint ventures in the Gulf and Saudi Arabia 
continue to be established with increased staff, 
facilities, and stock. In the Gulf area, Quebeisi SGB, 
whose main operation is in the United Arab 
Emirates, increased its business although there is 
increased local competition and some difficulty is 
being experienced in collecting money because of 
cutbacks in Government funds available for building. 

In Saudi Arabia, SGB Dabal Limited is now 
successfully operating in Dammam and Riyadh and 
SGB Export are developing a joint venture with their 
agents in Jeddah. 


Proposals have recently been put forward 
recommending the nationalisation of a substantial 
portion of the construction industry. 

In my view, these proposals would have a 
disastrous effect on our industry which in its present 
form provides a flexible and effective service to the 
nation, and is an increasingly important contributor to 
the balance of payments through its overseas 
activities. Nationalisation may be appropriate for 
social service type functions which cannot be made 
cost effective. However, it would be quite 
inappropriate for the highly competitive construction 
industry, which is in the main involved in unique "one 
off" projects and where there is no shortage of 
capital or labour to meet the widely varying 
demands. Apart from other considerations, it would 
increase enormously the cost to the country of 
building and civil engineering work, and have a 
seriously damaging effect on the export performance 
of the industry. 

It is hoped that the public will come out firmly 
against any form of Government participation in the 
industry. The only thing the Government needs to do 
is to establish a long term consistent policy for 
construction, with a view to eliminating the "stop/ 
go*' tactics adopted by successive governments on 
capital expenditure on construction, cutting out such 
needless irritants as Office Development Permits, 
Industrial Development Certificates, and policy 
changes such as those which one year encourage 
people ro disperse away from city centres and the 
next attempt to attract them back. 

Staff and Prospects 

In 1977 the Group has made a significant step 
forward in both turnover and profits. This has not 
been an easy year for the industry and the results 
have only been achieved through the loyalty and hard 
work of all our employees, both at home and 
overseas, and I am sure the shareholders will join me 
in thanking them once again for their efforts. 

In these days of uncertainty, both in the U.K. 
and abroad, it becomes increasingly difficult to look 
into the future. There area number of overseas 
territories where substantial improvements in our 
profits could be made if political and economic 
factors change for the better. 

At home, f hope that we have seen the worst of 
the building recession a nd that the good results we 
have had in 1977 will continue, and that 1978 will 
show further growth. Overall, however, the progress 
0 ! the group does depend on a morestable and 
improving world trade in the construction industry.

For the coal merchants, the

ill. They are naturally keen to 
sec transport costs lowered: but 
the NCB proposed rationalisation 
of loading facilities, und of coat

added difficulties over supply.

Rolls’ bid for PWR power 

finandal Times 

By DAVID FISHLOCK, Science Editor 

ROLLS-ROYCE, playing bc«st to 
the Prime Minister in Derby in 
December, took the opportunity 
to brief him of one of Britain's 
most secret technologies: the 
nuclear reactor it builds for the 
Navy. Sir Kenneth Keith, 
Rolls-Royce’s chairman, told Mr. 
Callaghan that from a bilateral 
agreement negotiated with the 
U.S. in the late 1950s Britain 
had already developed a series 
of pressurised water reactors. 

These " British PWRs.” manu¬ 
factured wholly in the U.K., are 
in service to-day in- 13 sub¬ 
marines, the latest of which— 
Sceptre—joins the fleet next 
week.. A new generation of 
PWR is in prototype at HMS 
Vulcan, a reactor test station in 
Scotland run by Rolls-Royce for 
ihe Navy. Construction of the 
prototype of a fourth genera¬ 
tion of British PWR will begin 
there next year. 

Sir Kenneth's purpose in 
briefing first the PM then Mr. 
Anthony Wedgwood Benn, 
Secretary for Energy, was to 
make a strong bid for a role in 
Britain’s new nuclear power 
programme. Where in the past 
Rolls-Royce s nuclear activities 
have been almost exclusively 
for the Navy, which has 
jealously husbanded the experi¬ 
ence. the company now wants to 
enter the market for civil 
reactors with its experience of 
fhe PWR. Moreover, it is claim¬ 
ing a track record unrivalled in 
the civil nuclear sector, for a 
type of reactor which the elec¬ 
tricity supply industry is eager 

to have available as an alterna¬ 
tive to the advanced gas-cooled 

Behind these claims stands 
one of the least-publicised com¬ 
panies of its size in Britain: 
Rolls-Royce and Associates, a 
consortium of about 1.300 staff, 
comprising a 54 per cent. Rolls- 
Royce shareholding, with the 
balance shared equally between 
Babcock and Wilcox. Foster 
Wheeler, and Vickers. It was 
originally set up by the Min¬ 
istry of Defence in 1959 to man¬ 
age the procurement of a 
Westing house reactor from the 
U.S. for Dreadnought. Britain’s 
first nuclear submarine. At the 
same time it built Britain's first 
PWR, at HMS Vulcan — named 
after the lame god who never 
went to war — for development 
and training, and for ihe 
simulation of nuclear propul¬ 
sion problems at sea. 

Rolls-Royce and Associates 
does not try to minimise the 
fact that it had plenty of prob¬ 
lems with its early PWRs. But 
as it learned the difficult new 
technology and as it gained the 
Navy's confidence, the Ministry 
of Defence delegated more and 
more responsibility. “ We 
taught ourselves the funda¬ 
mental technology that was not 
part of the package the Govern¬ 
ment bought from Westing- 
house,” says Mr. Peter Goodwin, 
managing director. To-day his 
company has total responsi¬ 
bility for the submarine reactor 
programme " from cradle to 
grave.” It has provided the 

Navy with 16 reactors and 30 
reactor " cores ’’—the heart of 
the system, which includes the 
fuel—and has another three 
reactors under construction. 
Moreover, as manager of HMS 
Vulcan, it is the only private 
company in Britain operating a 
power reactor. 

To-day the company claims to 
build PWRs on schedule, to the 
price quoted, and to the per¬ 
formance stipulated by its cus¬ 
tomer, the Navy’s Ship Depart¬ 
ment at Bath. (Incidentally, the 
customer supports these claims.) 
Its turnover is around £25m. 
The four shareholders account 
for more than 50 per cent of the 
value of a nuclear package 
which costs the Navy about 
£10m. Rolls-Royce itself makes 
the core, about 23.5 per cent of 
the value (excluding the highly 
enriched uranium fuel, which is 
supplied by the Ministry of 
Defence). Babcock supplies the 
50-ton reactor pressure vessel, 
about 7 per cenL of the value. 
Foster Wheeler provides the 
two 25-ton steam generators, 
another 18.5 per cent.: and 
Vickers provides the core bar¬ 
rel. emergency cooler and the 
complete shipboard installation. 

Compared with a civil power 
reactor of the size the Central 
Electricity Generating Board 
wants to order, around 1.200* 
1.300 MW, the submarine reac¬ 
tor is small. It is smaller in 
power output than Britain's 
first electricity-generating reac¬ 
tors. the four gas-cooled reactors 

of Calder Hall. Bat the sub¬ 
marine PWR technology—except 
for the design of its very 
highly rated core—has remained 
fundamentally unchanged. 

Moreover, because of the 
stresses a mobile military 
reactor must be designed for, 
such as shock and sudden 
demands for peak power, the 
submarine reactor must be very 
robustly constructed. For 
example, the steel pressure ves¬ 
sel, about the height of a double- 
decker bus. is two-fifths as tall 
as, and weighs about one-eighth 
of. that for a civil PWR. The 
steam generator, of a design 
which has found no acceptance 
yet in civil reactors, has avoided 
all the vexing corrosion prob¬ 
lems experienced in PWR power 
stations, as well as being “ aston¬ 
ishingly free” from the bug¬ 
bear of all big boilers—tube 
weld leaks. 

A major part of the company's 
activity is devoted to develop¬ 
ment From the original pack¬ 
age provided by Westinghouse 
it developed the first British 
submarine core, longer-lived and 
providing more power. The 
combined effect is almost to 
double the energy supplied by 
a core—for a 19 per cent 
increase in application cost. 
This core has been in sendee 
since 1973 and is capable oF 
being “ backfitted" to all the 
submarines except Dreadnought 

The next development step 
involved more widespread 
changes for the goal set by the 
Navy was a still longer life com¬ 

bined with much less reactor 
noise. This project, begun in 
1966. has not only met the 
Navy’s tough specification for 
noise but has produced a reac¬ 
tor capable of almost doubling 
again the output 

To test the new system they 
had to use radical surgery at 
HMS Vulcan. In what is known 
locally as the “ bicycle shed 17 — 
a reflection upon its unpre¬ 
possessing appearance-—the com¬ 
pany operates what is effectively 
half a nuclear submarine: PWR, 
steam turbine, electricity gene¬ 
rators about 10 per cent, of the 
reactor's output together with 
nuclear facilities for handling 
and storing spent fuel red 
radioactive components. In a 
refit that started in 1972 the 

company virtually rebuilt the 

reactor, leaving little unchanged 
except the pressure vessel and 
some pipework. 

The new reactor has been 
operating for almost a year. 
This has demonstrated that the 
fresh g ains in power output and 
reduced noise have been 
achieved for an increase in esti¬ 
mated application cost of 16 per 
cent. The new core is expected 
to enter service with the fleet 
in early. 19805. 

Each of these steps in PWR 
technology has been achieved 
for a design and development 
cost of about £6m.-£7m., exclud¬ 
ing the cost of prototype testing, 
estimates Mr. Peter Jones, the 
director responsible. About 
one-third of the company's staff 
comes under his control. His 

resources include Neptune r a 
“zero-energy” experimental 
actor, and large loops for testing 
full-scale components and sub¬ 

He build's perspex models 
roughly one-third of the size of' 
the submarine PWR, in order to 
see precisely how the coolant ■’ 
water is behaving as it is farced

Jones's department now is the

fourth generation of British.

bigger step forward than its 
predecessors; too big to be back¬ 
filled. It is expected to enter , 
fleet service in the early 1990s. 

The first big step in the - 
project, however, will be to . 
build a new prototype sub¬ 
marine at HMS Vulcan, at a cost 
Mr. Goodwin estimates “some 
tens of mill inns of pounds.”

EEC sugar 



COMMON MARKET sugar ex- 
port allotments rrarh»iJ lJie 
highest level of ibis crop 
season in Brussels vrsterday. 
The EEC Commission author¬ 
ised sales totalling 49,600 
tonnes or white sugar and 
25,600 tonnes of raws, fast 
week the Commission author¬ 
ised 69,015 tonnes of whiles for 
export but received no offers 
for raws. 

The large raw sugar export 
allotment kept alive speculation 
on East European demand. 
Last week sugar talues were 
boosted by rumours of Chinese 

asd Russian buying. The re¬ 
ports of Chinese purchases 
have been generally discounted 
bnt traders arc still uncertain 
about (he Russian situation. 

Market sources are generally 
attributing the demand (or raw- 
sugar to Leniral Africa and the 
Middle East, however. 

World sugar futures prices 
continued 10 ease on Ihe Lon¬ 
don Tutures ruar Re I vesicrday. 
The May iiuouuiuu fell £0.70 to 
£120.15 a tonne. In the morn¬ 
ing the Lundou daily raw sugar 
priev was fixed at £108 a tonne, 
unchanged on the daj. 

In New Delhi meanwhile, 
Mr. F. B. Kano rue the Indian 
Sugar Mills Association presi¬ 
dent. asked the Gotcruni.MiL to 
allow exports ol‘ 7«iU.0(Ht 
tonnes of sugar this year, re¬ 
ports Reuter. 

India's export t(uoia under 
the new lutcriiatioiial Sugar 
Agreement, which prutisHtn- 
ally came injo force on Jtnunr}- 
l, is T01 J23il tonnes. • 

Earlier this week a senior 
Trade Ministry official here 
asked to comment on reports 
that China was negotiating to 
boy Indian sugar said India's 
present policy was not to ex¬ 
port sugar at all beiause of 
Tow world prices. 



Dutch warning 
higher costs 


THE FARMERS 1 CLUB drew, on 
a rough couui, rather less than 
half those who listened to Mr. 
John SiUcin. the Agriealture 
Minister, to a seminar on Ihe 
Common Agricultural Policy in 
London yesterday. This, no 
doubt, was because Mr. Stikia is 
the tnan of the moment in British 
farming—a hate figure it is true, 
but the only one by whose 
actions Farmers can prosper or 


Eut Mr. Si Ik in's approach is tn 
the CAP that or a wrestler In 

a tricky situation. His policy is 
not so much a policy as a tactic 
of defending a number of situa¬ 
tions on an ad hoc basis, with a 
view to gainin-;: the maximum of 
what is called national advantage 
i.-i'in any circumstances that may 

Much more interesting is the 
....proach of Professor Marsh of 
Aberdeen University. He said, 
as he has said before, that the 
CAP tn its present form could 
doi endure mainly because it 
absolved national governments 
fre.-n any responsibility for food 
surpluses. These could beev»ine 
unbearable in time. 

He advocated a >>stent of what 
mi^ht he termed standard 
quantities. really production 
quotas, which would lay on 
member governments the respon¬ 
sibility for supporting their own 
farmers themselves instead of 

securing the open-ended com¬ 
mitment from Brussels to sup¬ 
port surpluses ad infinitum. 

If such a measure became 
feasible it would, according to 
Professor Marsh, release some 
of the EEC Tunds for such things 
as structural improvement and 
social measures. This was the 
original purpose of the CAP 

A ralber sardonic view of the 
CAP was given by Mr. Jon 
Viielander. managing director of 
one of the biggest farms in 
Holland. He recognised the 
need for the one-time colonial 
powers to group for the sake of 
survival, but doubted if the CAP 
was mure than 3 reconnaissance 
unit, seeking out ways of achiev¬ 
ing economic and monetary 

This aim would be largely 
destroyed by the entry of Greece, 
Spain and Portugal to the EEC. 
be said, as it would alter the 
balance of tbe CAP from a 
Northern European to a Mediter- 
reanean farming economy. 

He toid the audience that trac¬ 
tor drivers >*0 Dutch farms u«uld 
earn as much as £ 10 . 000 —fmir 
limes as much as Jbeir British 
counterpart-. Labour cost? would 
be least ea.-y to control, he said. 
.And he warned that while Dutch 
farmers were finding yields 
"very nice.'* and prices "very 
high.” costs were "unbelievable.” 

” British fanning is efficient 
and you have invested much 
more money m farming than we 
have in the past 10 or 20 years. 
But you. loo. will have to gel 
used to much higher costs than 
you have had so far.” 

He added, however, that 
whether ihe EEC proves* .t suclc.-. ; 
or not. England would' > 

be a pillar of Europe. " In spite 
of some temporary detachment 
and arrogance displayed in 
Brussels h\ people who confuse 
defending national interests with 
intransigent behaviour. 1 '

Hidden dangers of food aid 

Brazil denies 
coffee halt 

BRAZIL HAS not suspended 
coffee export registrations, 
neither has it made any changes 
in its coffee export policy, the 
Brazilian Coffee institute's presi¬ 
dent. Sr. Camilla Culazans. said 

Sr. Caluzans was commenting 
on rumours circulating overseas 
of possible changes in Brazil’s 
sales policy, and that Brazil had 
suspended registrations. 

He said Brazil would suspend 
export registrations only in the 
event of a cqtostrophe, such as 

The IBC has been closed over 
the carnival holiday but registra¬ 
tions are open again now that 
the holiday is over, the Institute 
president said. 



FOOD AID is often of more 
benefit to the donor than to the 
recipient and in some circum¬ 
stances can be positively 
dangerous to the latter's 
economy. This view was pul 
forward by the Tanzania Food 
and Nutrition Centre at a recent 
meeting of the International 
Peace Research Association’s 
Food policy study group. 

In a paper presented on the 
centre's behalf, the group, con¬ 
sisting mainly of European 
researchers and field workers 
experienced in food aid, was told 
that the food donated was often 
inappropriate, highly refined, 
over-sophisticated and expensive. 

Hunger and malnutrition could 
be better tackled by the 
encouragement of the local pro¬ 
duction of simpler foods, the 
paper said. 

Supplementary food aid might 
be required while local produc¬ 

tion was bc-ing built up but this 
should be designed to fit into 
local dietary habits, “not create 
dependency on expensive foreign 
foods.” Care should also lie taken 
to avoid sapping the individual's 
or country's will or ability to 
feed itself. 

Even emergency aid could in 
some cases create more problems 
than it solves. 

The situation Following the 
Guatemalan earthquake was 
quoted as a good example ot 
this. Because the disaster 
happened shortly after the 
harvest there was a lot of food 
in the country but it was tempor¬ 
arily buried. This was recovered 
quite quickly hut large grain 
shipments from abroad depressed 
prices so that the local peasants 
could not sell part of their 
harvest to earn the cash to 
rebuild their smashed homes. 

It was. as one local worker 

said, as if you had it hi pped 
massive amounts of wheat u> ihe 
U.S. and given it away free. "Just 
imagine what the U.S farmers 
would have done.” 

The Tanzanians recognised 
that food aid might so in clinics 
help in an emergency hut 
warned that the local situation 
must be taken into account and 
that care must be taken not in 
hinder the country's recovery 
once the emergency was over. 

Food aid is always second best, 
it was pointed our. Financial 
aid can enable food to be bought 
in the country or used to stimu¬ 
late local production. Food end 
is also bulky and difficult to ship. 
In addition, a large bureaucracy 
and a relatively good infrastruc¬ 
ture is needed for food to bo 
distributed fairly. But unless the 
government of the recipient 
country wishes to help the poor 
and hungry then food aid will 
not get to them.

Pauline Clark writes: Mr. 
Booth strongly denied that the 
Government’s latest efforts to 
persuade employers to comply 
with the 10 per cent pay guide¬ 
lines amounted to statutory wage 

He repudiated as “a load of 
arrant nonsense " any suggestion 
that it was the intention to set 
uP a Star Chamber with him 
taking Commissar-style control 
over who should or should not 
be able to proceed with wage 

Mr. Booth was at pains to 
Teassure employers and unions 
that the Government was acting 
no differently now as it was 

The 50 to 60 Government 
officers involved in monitoring 
pay settlements had called 5,507 
meetings since the onset of 
Phase One (1975-76) of Govern¬ 
ment pay policy. Of these only 
1.000 had taken place since last 
August when Phase Two ended 

While 32,000 settlements had 
been examined in two and a-half 
years, only 385 had been 
regarded as breaching the pay 
codes. As many as S7 per cent, 
of companies involved had been 
persuaded to renegotiate.
