SUMMARY 


GENERAL 


BUSINESS 











Comecon, - the East European 
economic idlianee, is considering 
a change in its voting system 
which could fprec the economic 
policies' of smaller Communist 
states into Kne with the Soviet 
Union and; provoke . serious 
strains wi thin the bloc. 

The nine countries involved — 
the Warsaw pact states^ plus 
Mongolia and Cuba— are expected 
to discuss the plan at a suoQhlt 
in Bucharest later this month. 
Coroecon’s ' present unanimous 
voting procedure would he 
replaced By a • system making 
majority decisions binding on all 
member countries. Back Page

SHARP VARIATION AGAIN IN 
MAY CURRENT ACCOUNT 

UK back into 
trade deficit 


BY PETER RIDDELL, ECONOMICS CORRESPONDENT 


BRITAIN'S CURRENT account 
moved back into deficit again 
last month after the record sur- 
plus in ApriL 

This year's pattern of sharp 
montb-to-momh fluctuations is 
continuing, and about half the 
£392m deterioration in May — 
for a deficit of £49m — is ex- 
plained by movements in the 
more erratic items, notably pre- 
cious stones, and by an industrial 
dispute at Southampton docks. 

Consequently the underlying 
t7‘" ! remains obscure, though it 
is clear that rising North Sea oil 
production is offsetting a sluggish 
export performance and a steady 
growth in manufactured imports. 

In the last three months there 
has been a £150m improvement 
in the current account compared 
with the Decern ber-to-February 
period for a surplus of £105m. 
This is fully explained by a nar- 
rowing of £2S0m in the visible 
deficit on trade in oil. 

The latest figures produced 
mild disappointment in the 
foreign exchange market yester- 
day. After an initial fall, 
sterling soon recovered and 
closed only 13 points lower at 
SI. 8327. The trade-weighted index 
slipped by 0.1 to 61.3. 

Prices of gilt-edged stock fell 
by between \ and !■ and there 
were doubts in the market about 
whether the new £lbn ultra-long 
tap stock would be over-sub- 
scribed when offered this morn- 
ing.

The reception is still seen as 
finely balanced, given that an 
£SG0m short tap is on offer on 
Friday. However, a £7m issue 
by South Tyneside Council was 
over-subscribed more than 100 
times yesterday. 

North Sea oil remains the 
main bright feature of the 
figures. The deficit on visible oil 
trade is less than three-firths of 
the figure a year ago, and less 
than half the gap of two years 
ago. 

Otherwise, tbe picture js not 
so encouraging even when the 
more erratic items, such as ships, 
aircraft and precious stones, are 
excluded. 

On this basis, the volume of

customer demand for cheap 
fares. 

Tbe airline was not advocat- 
ing complete de-regulation of 
international air fare pricing 
— it wanted to take the Ie3d in 
setting new, cheap fare stan- 
dards. 

“The time has come when 
world airlines have 10 recog- 
nise that the traditional sche- 
duled fares have to go to meet 
cheap- fare needs, the fastest 
growing area in air travel.” 

Mr. Draper is discussing 
British Airways' new low fare 
structure with all other inter- 
national airlines and agree- 
ment has not been reached on 
tbe precise level of. trans- 
atlantic fares in British Air- 
ways’ new discount class. 

The airline has proposed 
the re-introduction of several 
distinct classes on all its flights. 
In place of first class and 
economy class British Airways 
aircraft from October would 
start flying with, three classes: 
first, club and discount. 

First would have all the 
features of present first-class 
seats. Club would be the staple 


form of travel for most busi- 
nessmen, combining executive 
needs with the present economy 
class. Business passengers 
using this service still would 
be able to change tickets at 
will but would have a guaran- 
teed number of seats 
At the moment, 23 per cent 
of British Airways tickets are 
standby or budget. Under the 
scheme proposed yesterday, 50 
per cent of all seats would be 
at cheap rates. 

Provisional fares between 
New York and London from 
next year will be £748. first- 
class return; £340 club-class 
return; and £149 discount 
return. ;* 

The new Heathrow-Aberdeen 
standby, single wilt be £22, 
compared with £39.90 now. 

0 The best buy on British Rail 
for the journey between 
London and Aberdeen is the 
£26.68 weekend returu, with 
£30.65 charged for the monthly 
return.

Britain warned against seeking 
bilateral fishing agreements 


BY MARGARET VAN HATTEM 


MR. OLAV GUNDELACH. the 
EEC Fisheries Commissioner, 
tonight spelled out a clear warn- 
ing to Britain: there will be no 
more major concessions on fish- 
ing policy, and any attempt to 
bvpass the Community and seek 
bilateral agreements with third 
countries will be taken up imme- 
diately in the European Court of 
Justice. 

Id a major statement to tbe 
European Parliament in Stras- 
bourg, .Mr. Gundelaeh said nego- 
tiations for an EEC common 
fisheries policy appear to have 
reached a stalemate- British 
demands for special treatment 
went “just a fait too fac.” he 
said. 

His recent tour of EEC capitals 
bad shown that the gap between 
Britain and the other eight raem- 
mer states, had, if anything, 
widened since the informal 
meeting of fisheries ministers in 
Berlin last January when the 
other eight concluded a 
gentleman’s agreement" ex- 


cluding Britain,, to abide by 
Commission proposals For 1978. 

Mr. Ginw»l>.ch said Britain 
bad consistently delayed progress 
towards a common fisheries 
policy, despite the fact that both 
the Commission and the other 
member states had gone a long 
way to meet its special require- 
ments. 

“Tbe Commission feels its 
latest proposals are fair and go 
as far as is possible under the 
Treaty of Rome," be said. “ 1 
don't «ay that modifications are 
not possible, but the Treaty must 
be respected.*’ 

He warned that any member 
state which tried to negotiate, 
formally or informally, for 
arrangements with third 
countries would be taken im- 
mediately to the European Court 
of Justice. 

This was an obvious reference 
to suggestions made by Mr. John 
Silkin, tbe UK Minister of Agri- 
culture and Fisheries, who said 
In London today tbat tbe possi- 


STRASBOURG, June 14. 

bility of a bilateral deal might be 
raised during his five day visit 
to Norway at the end of this 
month. 

However, despite the warning 
to Britain, Mr. Gusdelacb’s 
speech was moderately worded 
and be appears to have accepted 
that there will be no solution 
for the fishing problem until 
after the British General Elec- 
tion. 

There were strong indications 
in Strasbourg that both the Com- 
mission and the Danish presi- 
dency regard Mr. Si Brin's posi- 
tion as pre-election manoeuv ring

Dr. David Owen, the British 
Foreign Secretary, made no 
comment after the faour-long 
meeting ibis morning, but U.S. 
sources said the talks “went 
well." 

A bald communique issued 
afierwards said the ministers 
“ took note " of the recent 
meeting in Luanda between the 
South West African People's 
Organisation (SWAPO) and 
five front-line black states. 
The African leaders are 
apparently pressing to get a 
settlement along the lines of 
tbe Western proposals back on

Michael Holman writes from 
Lusaka: ^The South West

here, providing the 1400 South

The SWAPO position, more

which Insists that Walvis Bay

Callaghan hails role of 


Romania in Mideast 


\ 


BY OUR FOREIGN STAFF 


MR. JAMES CALLAGHAN, the 
UK Prime Minister, said yes- 
terday that the visit to Britain 
of Mr. Nicolae Ceatisescu, the 
Romanian President, set the 
seal on the steadily increasing 
scope of Angto-ROmanian 
relations. 

At a lunch held in President 
Ceauseseu’s honour. Hr. 
Callaghan praised the Rom- 
anian leader’s statesmanship 
and the “ valuable role n which 
Bucharest has played in trying 
to bring about progress in the 
Middle East Both Mr. Mena- 
hem Begin, the Israeli Prime 
Minister, and Mr. Anwar Sadat, 
tbe Egyptian President, have 
visited Romania, which is the 


only East European country t<£, 
have relations with Israel. ' 


Mr. Ceansescu's talks with 
Mr. Callaghan yesterday 
apparently spanned the full 
gamnt of world affairs, foeus- 
ing on disarmament, East-West 
affairs, as well as the Middle 
East 

In his speech, Mr. Callaghan 
referred specifically to Anglo- 
Romaniau trade and described 
the 1977 joint trade turnover 
as encouraging. The Romanians 
are known however to be dis- 
satisfied with the amount of 
British purchases from their 
country which has resulted in 
a substantial imbalance in 
Britain’s favour.

faces smuggling charges for , ;

10 years in a labour camp. — 

U.S. ufficlals are known to 
regard tee police action as 
retaliation, for the* arrest last 
month of-itwo Soviet employees 
at the United Nations. The two 
have been accused of stealing . 

U.S.- military secrets. 

Mr. Crawford's arrest is also ? 

vlee'n as a symptom of the strains ' f 

tin. Soviet-American relations , ‘ 

ovqr such issues as human rights - — '• 

and developments in Afnca. 

Th\re is speculation that police 
were told to act as they did. 
rathfer than arresting Mr. Craw- 
ford \at home or at work, to 
cause\ the maximum shock to 
U.S. leaders and public. 

. A few hours before Mr. Craw- 
ford was seized the Soviet 
Govemihent neswpaper com- 
plained \of anti-Soviet hysteria ‘ . 

in Jhe U.S. over recent spying 
allegations, and said: “ we’re not 
scared easily.”

has worked here for two ycare

The new DC-9 Super 80 is coming. 
And you'll be able to see it long, long 
before you hear it. 

Our new Super 80 is expected to 
cut the high -noise area around airports 
to as little as one-fifth of what it is 
with current jetliners ot comparable 
size. With powerful, yet efficient, new 
. "■ engines, and improved instru- 
r men ta tion for all- wea ther 

operations, the Super 80 offers 
airlines the lowest operating cost per 
seat mile of any jetliner in this cla ss. 

And it offers you, the passenger, 
the comfort of improved ventilation 
and lighting, a much quieter ride, plus 
the on-time reliability you've come to 
expect from the DC-9 family of jets.

Mr. Carter was responding to 
President Castro’s statement on 
Tuesday that Cuba had not 
been involved in the invasion 
and that UB. statements to the 


contrary were lies ’’manufae- 
tJyed" by Dr. Zblgnew 
BriezinskL the President’s 
national security adviser, and 
others. 

»Tbe fart is that Mr. Castro 
could have done much more if 
be genuinely wanted to stop 
ibe invasion,” Mr. Carter said. 

The Washington a ir is cur- 
rently thick with information 
from sources who cannot be 
named but whose information.

sources inside the Administra-

And each morning his first job 
of the day is to brief the Presi-

hours with the aid of _a briefing

small team from the National 
Security Council over which be

It is a task rthat Zbig. as he is 
often known for short, rarely

where access to the President

a symbol of his close relationship

hat UE. statements to tne 

Brzezinski*. voice in disharmony 

BY DAVID BELL IN WASHINGTON 


Castro of Cuba singled out Dr. 
Brzezinski and accused him of 
“ manufacturing lies about 
Cuban involvement id Zaire, isy 
contrast be paid heavily quali- 
fied compliments to both Mr. 
Cvrus Vance, the Secretary of 
State, and President Carter. 

The Soviet Union has been 
attacking Zbig for months, 
charging him with resiujecting 
cold war attitudes and deliber- 
ately trying to sabotage detente 
and the SALT talks. In the 
past few weeks the attacks on 
him have become more strident 
and Russian commentators nave 
claimed to identify his hap d 
all the tougher parts of the 
President’s recent speeches. 

The attacks have not just 
conic from the East. The Jewish 
lobby has been arguing since the 
Administration took ofiice that 
its new found support for moder- 
ate Arabs and its Increasing 
irritation with Israel was also a 
reflection of Zbigs success m per- 


suading the President to listen to 
his views. 

inevitably Dr. Brzezinski's 
recent promineni-e brings to 
mind his predecessor. Dr. Henry 
Kissinger He, too. began his 
public career as National 
Security adviser, working with 
Mr William Rogers, a pleasant 
but m*Id-mannered Secretary of 
State; IS months into the firat 
Nixon Administration the fric- 
tion was clear between Rogers 
and Kissinger. Eventually. Mr. 
Rogers was pushed aside and 
Dr. Kissinger became Secretary 
of State. 

Eighteen months into the 
Carter Administration it is 
tempting in draw the parallel. 
B U t it would probably be mis- 
leading- At the start of his 
Administration, Mr. Carter said 
■that he favoured a ” collegial ” 
approach to foreign policy- 
making. Out of this grew a sort 
of triumvirate — Mr. Vancae, Dr. 
Brzezinski. and Mr. Andrew 


Young. Ambassador to the UN. 

Since then this group has ex- 
panded to include Vice President 
Mondale, Dr. Harold Brown, th« 
Defe nc e Secretary, and mr. 
Hamilton Jordan. Mr. Cmter* 
chief aide, who now has special 
responsibility for the domestic 
implications of foreign policy. 

Last week’s speech by Mr. 
Carter, which was supposed to 
clarify his policy, clearly bore 
the imprint of each of these 
men. It was in turn tough mid 
conciliatory, reflecting the dij 
agreements within the Adminis- 
tration about how to deal with 
the complex challenges pre- 
sented by the Soviet Union. 
Interestingly enough, the whole 
speech was written in longhand 
bv Mr. Carter himself, and it left 
the clear impression that the 
President has still not really 
made up his mind about how to 
respond^ to Soviet and Cuban 
activities in Africa and else- 
where. 


Zbig’s critics— and there are 
many of them in Washington— 
charge that he has taken advan- 
tage of this Presidential in- 
decision— or vacuum— and has 
pushed _„the_ Admlnisuations 


centre" of gravity to the jigbti 
Thev distrust the way be nas 
flaunted his recent trip, to China 

in the face of the Soviet Union, 
and were disturbed by his hint 
in an interview that he favoured 
sending a naval task force to 
the Horn of Africa. 

But more than anything else, 
they have been irritated by me 
interview that he gave on tele- 
vision soon after his return from 
Peking. In this he used strong 
language to denounce Soviet ana 
Cuban adventurism and seemed 
deliberately to be raising the 
temperature of the Telat30 ^ b l b 
at a time when more subtlety 
might have been more appro- 
priate. . 

Tbese same critics say that 
Zbig knows too tittle about the

Katangans in Angola in August 

Further, these officials said 
UE. intelligence suggests inat

invasion. The Katangans had

policy. They believe in short 
that he has over-reacted to Soviet 
actions and driven the President 
into a corner where be has little 
alternative but to “ P_ l ay it 
tough.” Zbig himself said m a 
recent interview that one of his 
roles was “to stiffen^the back 
of the Administration.” 

Yet in practice Zbig is not fill- 
ing the vacuum to anything like 
the extent that some of his 
critics charge, and it is highly 
probable that he would not want 
to He remains a close personal 
friend of Mr. Vance in spite of 
the clear policy differences 
between .State Department and 
the National Security Council. 

Zbig himself says that the 
differences between him and the 
rest of the administration are 
mostly a matter of degree. He 
strongly supports detente, ana 
wants a new arms control agree- 
ment. But he also behoves that 
the U.S., with the trauma of 
Vietnam behind it. is now in a 
strong position to challenge the 
Soviet Union ideologically.

Jordan aims to be technology centre 


BY RAMI G. KHOURi IN AMMAN 


THE PROPOSAL hy Jordan's 
i'i-<v.vn Prince Hassan last week 
tl'.ai a Euro- Arab centre for the 
irjnsfei- of technulogy be cstah- 
li-b rt 'l in Amman may at first 
appear to be the whimsical sug- 
gestion nf a very Western- 
orient i-d and iei-lmucratic- 
thinking A rab — a n assess ment 
v-hich wuiid he unfair. 

The suggestion, made hy 
Prince Haxsati at the second 
A r;to- European Business Co- 
uperatinn .SympoMiiin in Mon- 
irenx. Switzerland, h in fuel the 
latest in a mure ur less studied 
scries of initiatives designed to 
mTcr Jordan as a natural com- 
mercial gatevay into the vast 
Middle East market, as well as 
something of an mdigenou-: Arab 


centre tor science and technology 
serving the Eastern Mediter- 
ranean and Arabian Peninsular 
countries. 

Prince Hassan, 31-year-old 
younger brother of King Hussein, 
specifically proposed the estab- 
lishment of “ a Euro-Arab centre 
for appropriate technology.” the 
function of which he outlined as 
being a focal point receiving 
specific requests and providing 
proper answers regarding the 
transfer of appropriate tech- 
nology. and a source of making 
financial arrangements “ to 
lubricate the necessary tech- 
nological transfers.” 

Prince HassanV and Jordan's 
new-found fascination with the 
whole question of the transfer of 


technology is very much the child 
of necessity and circumstance, 
and initiative* such as this are 
Jordan's attempt to forge a 
regional niche for itself instead 
of always being buffeted by the 
economic forces that hlow all 
around it. 

While it has no oil wealth, Jor- 
dan does enjoy a well-educated 
and technically trained popula- 
tion. This has led to a high 
regional demand for Jordanian 
workers, to the point where 
nearly 300.000 Jordanians nmv 
work outside the country, and 
the domestic workforce of only 
400.000 is insufficient to fill all 
jobs in the booming Jordanian 
economy. 

The fact that l he domestic 
workforce is well educated, 


coupled with recent labour short- 
ages. has led to an instinctive 
leaning towards capital-intensive 
and technologically advanced 
Industries that require relatively 
less labour than would otherwise 
be needed. 

The centrepiece of the 
country's dash into its institu- 
tionalised technological aspira- 
tions is the ” Royal Scientific 
Society," established in IftTl on 
Prince Hassan’s initiative . to 
provide- a fq£a) point for the 
vu unity's scattered researchers 
and technicians. The RSS. under 
the leadership of its present 
Director-General. Dr. Albert 
Bulros. has become more aggres- 
sive in seeking out the practical 
problems of hundreds nf small- 
scale industries which it can 



Tr

Id ship our cameras via SdiiphoT 


- tackle and often solve, given its 
‘ greater resources, and the lack 
: of any real research and 
! development programmes among 
' private or public institutions, 
i Jordan has woken up to the 
fact during the past three years 
1 that its potential in the context 
■ of the socio-economic develop- 
ment of the Middle East is 
significant. It is the potential 
that it is now setting out to 
1 translate into fact, and the 
1 country’s role as a ** technologi- 
; cal service/ centre ” as both 
Prince Hasjan and Dr. Butros 
put it, is - central to Jordan’s 
future self-image. 

The provision of trained man- 
power to Its nearby Arab neigh- 
bours is- the most obvious uf 
Jordan's roles— so obvious, in 
fact, that the country has tried, 
so far -unsuccessfully, to receive 
financial compensation tor the 
rusts it incurs in providing this 
skilled labour. 

Tho drive to use more sophisti- 
cated. technology in manufac- 
turing industries geared to 
regional markets is the next step 
in Jordan's efforts. The on- 
going establishment of four new 
free zones throughout the 
country is the lynchpin to attract- 
ing foreign investments tor 
joint ventures in manufacturing, 
though many wholly-owned Jnr- 
i dantan industries have already 
established themselves outside 
the free zones and are already 
selling to markets next door. ' 
Transport is emerging as a 
key pillar of Jordan's regional 
role. The state airline Alia has 
successfully introduced non-stDp 
fiiphLs using Boeing Jumbo jets 
between Amman and New York, 
and is attracting freight and pas- 
senger business which uses 
Amman as the transit point tor 
nEthcr Middle Eastern destina- 
tions. 


Now your legal duties and personal responsibilities are more far-reaching 
than ever before, an informed awareness of the standards that roust be 
achieved and rhe bestmethods for achieving them are vitaf, to relate 
compliance with thelaw to efficient and cost-effective management.

-this area, and the construction 
nf told storage facilities at 
Aqaba — which the Australians 
are considering as a resiunal 
depot for their meat sales to the 
Arab world — will further prove 
. the viability of the Jordanian 
planners' ideas for their country. 

The more rapid movement of 
■ educated women into the work- 
force (fewer women emigrate 
than ment and the fact that over 
40.000 Jordanians in universities 
abroad, should give the country 
the human raw material required 
to play its technology oriented 
role. 

The fact that the scientists and 
engineers are Arabs makes them 
that much more valuable in the 
regional context and the proposal 
by Crovrn Prince Hassan last 
week for the establishment of a 
K urn- A rab cemre for the trans- 
fer of technology thus takes on 
a much broader and more 
realistic Pan-Arab colouring if 
the ‘centre is established in 
Amman. 

Tbe entry into service of some 
new free zones and the comple- 
tion of some vita! infrastructural 
schemes gives Jordan for the first 
time ever the facilities that any 
regional centre requires, be it 
centred on bankinR. manufactur- 
ing or anything else. The 
Jordanians are not used to bcioR 
able to offer them selves as a 
functional entity of practical 
value to the international busi- 
ness community. Thev will 
probably he a bit clumsy in their 
initial self-promotion, but the 
fact that they are now proposing 
themselves as a centre for Ihe 
transfer of technology between 
Europe and the Arab world Is 
testament to u latent economic 
potential which is on the verge 
of being tested in a serious 
manner for the first time io tbe 
country's history.

posing great threats to historic 
r houses and art treasures m 
. private ownership, -it says a-more 
.^flexible policy, of safeguards 
' should be adopted by the 
■ Government. . 

The recommendations, come 
.after an ' inquiry into Treasury 
'.administration ] of the " fund 
"prompted by its refusal last. year 
to acquire Meiitmore from. Lord 
’.Rosebery. . 

. Established in 1946 with £50m 
'from the sale of .war surplus 
stores, the fund was intended by 
Dr. Hugb Dalton, Labour Chan- 
■' cellor at : the time, as a war 
memorial.. . ■ 


The orlginal'intaxtioh of using 

it to acquire' land of special 
scenic or natural value has never 
"been fully carried out however.

increased to £59nu'The Govern- 
ment of the day : reduced the 
fund .to ftOm. that year, since 
when about • £9.6m has been 
disbursed. . Investments have 
increased the- capital to about 
£18m. 


A wider role should be con 
sidered for the fund in the 
acquisition of . historic gardens, 
nature reserves and other 
countryside areas and cash 
endowments provided for the 
maintenance of exceptional 
historic buildings.

The question whether a work

meets the statutory requirement 
of being of preeminent” merit 
should be determined by inde-

recommends. 


Until tbe I und is run by inde- 
pendent trustees, however, a 
council should be established to 
advise the Treasury on the alloca- 
tion of its resources. 

Tbe committee believes that, 
if given a more flexible role, 
the fund would soon be ex- 
hausted. It urges, therefore, that 
the Government should, as a first 
step, mak'- good the £5Qm

Sir Hugh and three of the other

failing to notify the company or 
vheir dealings in its shares within 
the required period. 

Sir Hugh has admitted not 
notifying'61 transactions. but has 
denied the charges in relation to 
a further 18. The others have 
deniM all charges. 

^ThAcasc was completed last

FURTHER QUESTIONS about 
the National Enterprise Board’s 
controversial £5ni investment in 
British Tanners Products, which 
it owns jointly with Barrow Hep- 
burn Group, have been raised by 
Mr. Michael Grylls. Conservative 
MP for North-West Surrey. 

Mr. Grylls has now received a 
copy of the NEB’s “revised re- 
written statement” to the House 
of Commons Public Accounts 
Committee about financial trans- 
actions in connection with the 
setting up last year of British 
Tanners, formed from the loss- 
making tanning interest of 
Barrow Hepburn. 

Yesterday, he described this 
statement as a great improvement 
on an earlier, as yet unpublished, 
account of the matter to the com- 
mittee. Parliament's watchdog on 
public spending. 

He considers that the previous 
NEB statement was misleading, 
although not intentionally so. 

Sir Douglas Henley, the Comp- 
troller and Auditor General, at 
the request of Mr. Edward Du 
Cann MP. ebairmau of the com- 
mittee, has been looking into 
points already raised by Mr. 
Grylls on the NEB's earlier 
statement. 

The NEB’s revised statement 
to the committee throws new 
light on the exact financial trans- 
actions involved when British 
Tanners, which made losses of 
more than £2m last year, was 
set up- 

Of the £l0.4m of debts which 
thi* tanning interests making up 
British Tanners owed to their 
previous parent when the new 
concern was formed. £I.Hm was 
settled through British Tanners 
assuming a loan of that amount 


owing' to the Industry- Depart- 
ment front Barrow Hepburn. 


The remaining £S.5m was paid 
in cash to Barrow Hepburn. Of 
this, £5m was met from the 
money channelled by the NEB 
and Barrow Hepburn into British 
Tanners against loan stock, and 
hy the NEB ior its shares in 
British Tanners, while £3.5m was 
found through overdrafts. 


Bill row inquiry proposal 

explained 


BY DAVID FISHLOCK, SCIENCE EDITOR 


BY ROY HODSON 


Mr. Grylls said the figures 
“mads a nonsense of the claim 
by the NEB that ihe reason for 
their going into British Tanners 
was to give financial support to 
it, 'since all the money put in 
went straight to Barrow 
Hepburn." 

Last night the Board com- 
mented; “W c have no comment 
to make on evidence submitted 
in writing to the Public Accounts 
Committee prior tn its publica- 
tion by the committee.” 


It emerged last night that Mr. 
Edward Buchan, former manag- 
ing director u[ Rentokil, has just 
been appointed as an indepen- 
dent chairman of British 
Tanners, hitherto headed by Mr. 
Richard Odey. chief executive of 
Barrow Hepburn. 

Xn a lei tor yesterday to Sir 
Leslie Murphy, chairman of the 
Enterprise Board, Mr. Grylls 
said he thought the Boards 
new sLatemcot would give tbe 
committee a better chance of 
understanding ihc full implica- 
tions of Ihe NEB intervention 
in British Tanners. 


‘As Parliament has the duty 
of monitoring the expenditure of 
tax-payers' money through the 
NEB, I certainly hope that great 
care will be taken in future that 
misleading statements are not 
made to select committees of the 
House of Commons.” 


MR. DAVID PENHALIGON. the 
Liberal energy spokesman yes- 
terday gave a new account of the 
dispute between the Liberals and 
Government Ministers which re- 
sulted in the Electricity Reorgan- 
I isation Bill being killed. 

The Liberals refused to sup- 
port the Bill and J}.r J 

Penhaligon's argument with tbe 
Bill’s sponsor. Mr. Anthony 
Wedgwood Benn. Energy Secre- 
tary, emerged when i lr -. Pen £“!L' 
con was questioned by both 
Labour and Conservative mem- 
bers of the Select Committee cm 
Nationalised Industries, which Is 
inquiring into the electricity 
supply industry. 

The Liherals. he explained, 
particularly took issue yvilh Mr 
Benn when he was seek mg their 
support for the Bill because it 
cailcd for the introduction of 
“strong and organic industrial 
democracy ” to he .fostered in the 
electricity supply md^try. we 
mid him?’’ said Mr. Penhaligon 
“we would only support it if 
that were to mean explicitly 
‘one employee one vote, 
whether or not ihe employee be- 
longed to a trade union. Mr. 
Ben refused.” 

Mr. Penhaligon said he had 
been given just 48 ^ hours notice 
bv the Government that Liberal 
support was requested under the 
Lib-Lab pact in order to see the 
Electricity Bill through. He had 
secured extra time and had 
consulted Sir Francis Tombs, 
chairman or the Electricity 
Council, union leaders, and 
many area electricity Board 
chairmen. 

The Liberals concluded that 
they would not want any 
nationalised industry to be given 
the wide-ranging new powers in- 
cluded in tbe Bill. 


THE ELECTRICITY supply in- 
dustry and the Atomic Energy 
Authority will be submitting to 
the Government later this raonin 
proposals which they believe 
could be used as the basislora 
public inquiry into Britain s 
first big fast breeder reactor. 

It Is understood that recent 
discussions involving three gen- 
erating Boards, the Electricity 
Council aod the Atomic Energy 
Authority have agreed upon a 
basic scheme for managing ana 
financing the £lbn project. 

The plan, now- being oral tea, 
also has the support of the 
nuclear construction industry 
which would build the 1,30° MW 
power station. 

Last .'ear Sir John Hill- chair- 
man of the Atomic Energy 
Authority told Mr. Antbon> 
Wedgwood Benn, Energy Sec re- 
larv, that he would not be Pit- 
ting forward a firm proposal tor 
the next stage of fast reactor 
development until the Govern- 
ment gave ils verdict on the 
Windscale inquiry into repro- 
cessing. . 

The Government gave the t,o- 
abead for the Windscale project 
last month. 

Sir John said yesterday that 
the industry w r as agreed that it 
should try to persuade Govern- 
ment to hold a single inquiry 
into its fast reactor plan, not 


two or more as some opponents 
have proposed. . . . 

From the industry s stand- 
point. this meant putting for- 
ward its case as a complete pack- 
age — including an outline reac- 
tor design, its associated furl 
services, and the safety case for 
a chosen site— as it had done 
for the new Windscale plant. 

The scheme still depends 
upon the willingness of the. 
Health and Safety Exeeulive to 
accept an outline proposal at 
this stage, as it had done for 
Windscale. 

A more detailed submissjnn 
would require detailed design 
work hy sub-contractors. It 
would involve the expense of 
perhaps £50m and a delay of 
perhaps two or three years. 

Sir John believe* that if the 
Government accepts the indus- 
try’s proposal, the inquiry could 
be held next year. 

The proposal would concern a 
commercial power station — not 
an experimental project — which 
the electricity supply industry 
would expect to produce power^ 
It would be n scaling-up <<f 
demonstrated UK fast reactor 
technology. 

Still unresolved is ihe site 
Dounreay in north Scnll.ind. site 
of two previous fast reactor pro- 
jects. is an obvious contender. 


Move to speed cheques 


BY DAViD FREUD 
THE AREA in which large 
cheques can be paid in for 
same-day settlement will be ex- 
tended if proposals by the clear- 
ing banks and the Bank at 
England are accepted. 

Under present arrangements 
cheques worth £5.000 and more 
can be cleared on the same day 
if presented at a “town clear- 
jing” hank in the City of 
London. 


The clearing banks and the 
Bank of England yesterday in- 
vited other banks to discuss 
the automation of the system. 
This would allow same-day 
clearing outside tbe City. 

The projeel, the Clearing

Financial Times Thursday June IS 197S 


oes to the brink 



BY JOHN HUNT. PARLIAMENTARY CORRESPONDENT 

THE GOVERNMENT won its vole of confidence 
last night by a slender majority oF five (282-287) 
in She Common* after a speech From the Frime 
Minister in whieh he threatened an immediate 
general election should the verdict go against him. 

As the result was announced, jeering Con- 
servatives rose in Ihcir seats to point accusing 
lingers at the Liberals whose last-minute 

abstentions saved the day For the Government. 

In a sure-footed wind-up to the debate- Mr. 
Callaghan warned of the grim repercussions faf the 
market ar.il the exchange rate should the House 
decide to hack the Tory motion of censure against 
Mr. Denis Healey. Chancellor oF the Exchequer. 

Mr. Callaghan then went in for some naked 
clvvtioneering of his own. The Tories, he said, 
advocated a policy of sabre-rattling against the 
Suik-L Union, tab thumping on hanging, shuffling 
on immigration, confrontation with the workers, 
and running away on devolution. 

lie told his cheering supporters: “When the 
time comes, we can appeal to the country with 
confidence, proud of our record and knowing Hint 
facing us is a bankrupt Opposition." 

Looking at the laughing faces of Labour 
backbenchers in the debate, one would never have 
supported that the Government was facing a cliff- 
har.gins vole oi confidence. 

Their spirits had risen after listening to a 
swash-buckling electioneering-style speech from 


Mr. Healey in which he defended his economic 
record and claimed that last week's package of 
measures had already received the blessings of the 
market. 

He sat down to wave after wave of cheers from 
the Labour benches— probably the best reception 
that he has ever received for a speech in the 
House. 

Government morale rose even more when Mr. 
David Steel, the Liberal leaders, announced that 
his party would not he backing the censure 
motion. Indeed, Mr. Steel spent much of his time 
attacking the Tories and merely expressing 
“ irritation " over the Chancellor’s uncharitable 
behaviour towards the Liberals. 

The House had listened to a long litany of 
charges against Mr. Healey from Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, the Conservative Shadow Chancellor, who 
— with the possibility of an election in the offing 
— resorted to uncharacteristically tough language. 

Patting the Chancellor in the dock, he accused 
him of ignorance matched by incompetence and 
recklessness, and of arrogance and deceit. Accord- 
ing to Sir Geoffrey. Mr. Healey had promoted 
policies which had led to a stagnant economy, an 
impoverished society and the destruction of 
British industry. 

Nor did be spare the Liberals. He remarked 
caustically on their abrupt retreat from the cen- 
sure motion immediately they had heard of the 
Government's eleventh-boar decision to make it 


a vote. or confidence. 

The Government was, he said “ now summon- 
ing the rats to return to the sinking ship -* 4 

Rising to reply, the Chancellor certainly did 
not look like a prisoner called to justice. As Mr. 
Steel remarked: "He would not know a penitent’s 
stool if he saw one.” 

With all his oid pugnacity, Mr. Healey referred 
to Sir Geoffrey’s indictment as “a tedious and 
tendentious farrago of motheaten press cuttings.” 
•Being attacked by Sir Geoffrey was, he said, “ like 
being savaged by a dead sheep." 

He delighted bis supporters by attacking the 
Tory decision to employ the advertising agency 
of Saatcbi and Saatcbl to present their policies, a 
firm which included among its clients Penguin 
Biscuits. Fairy Snow and “Schhb . . . you know 
who! " 

Mr. Healey jeered: “ You can't win the confi- 
dence of the electorate by selling a party like a 
soap powder.” 

Goading the Opposition even farther, he scat- 
tered his speech with references to the action he 
might take “ in my next Budget ” in the spring 
of 1979. 

At that time, be explained, be might find it 
possible to increase employment by making tax 
cats or by using ether methods to offset the 
£L5bn which will be brought in over a full year 
by the 2 J per cent increase in social security 
surcharge announced last week.

THE JOBS COLUMN 


Chance— and warning— for a would-be writer 


FINANCIAL CONTROLLER 
A; —SECURITIES . 



BY MICHAEL DIXON 


“ I COULDN'T stand working 
to deadlines,” is a frequent first 
comment from people who 
meet me and learn that I am a 
daily paper journalist. My 
reaction is to wonder why that 
particular working condition 
should bother people so. 

After all, virtually everybody 
has to work to time limits of 
some sort. What bothers the 
layman must therefore be the 
idea of finishing by 12 minutes 
past three this afternoon, as 
distinct from getting something 
done before you go home on 
Friday night. But given that in 
both instances the worker is ex- 
pected to do only the best be 
or she can in the time available, 
I cannot see that either is 
preferable. 

Once a person has become 
used to doing things quickly to 
fairly broad tolerances, it could 
well be harder to make the 
change to working more slowly 
to highly precise standards, 
than to change the other way 
round. 

The reason is that by con- 
stantly working to short-run 
deadlines, journalists tend to 
develop a sort of sc-lf-handi- 
capping sense of the minimum 
time it will take them to accom- 
plish a given task. As a result, 
if they have more than this 
minimum time available, they 
will use the extra allowance in 
delaying the start of the work. 

This is why the late Sir 
Desmond MacCarthy suggested, 
as a professional motto for 
journalists, the chilling phrase: 


There a always another 
quarter of an hour! 

I say this because Dave 
Watts, editor of the magazine 
Money Which?, has come to the 
Jobs Column with a post which 
offers one of the increasingly 
rare opportunities to get into 
journalism. And since one of 
the condition is an ability to 
“stick to strict deadlines," 1 
suspect that the lay public's 
unjustified worry about working 
to short-run time limits might 
otherwise deter perfectly ade- 
quate youngsters from applying 
for the job. 


a report on a particular topic: 
doing original research and 
commissioning any extra sur- 
veys or statistical exercises re- 
quired from outside analysing 
the material and doing the 
rating. 


The pain 


Its title is financial re- 
searcher. But the tasks include 
writing as well os assembling 
the information for articles in 
Money Which?, whose main aim 
is to give the general public the 
know-how they heed to run 
their financial affairs in a 
sensible way. 

The topics covered by the 
magazine include investment, 
mortgages, lax. insurance, and 
employment Id addition, it 
carries explanatory articles on 
broad economic issues of the 
day such as “Is Britain Over- 
Taxed ? ", “ Inflation ”, and 

even the EEC's Common Agri- 
cultural Policy. 


At that point, I would bet, 
anyone without journalistic ex- 
perience who joins Money 
Which ? will find themselves 
wishing that they had done any- 
thing other than take the job. 


The reason why we hacks 
tend to delay starting, you see, 
is that writing is the kind of 
excruciating activity than no- 
body in his right mind would 
start before he absolutely has 
to. It was Bernard Levin, I 
think, who lately estimated that 
he must have eaten 200 tons 
of digestive biscuits in his 
working life so far, simply be- 
cause, at any given moment, 
there are always far better 
reasons for eating a digestive 
biscuit than there are for start- 
ing an article. 


Whoever is engaged for the 
job will be responsible for her 
or his own reports from their 
origination as ideas to their 
being printed in the magazine. 
The work includes deciding 
what needs to be covered in 


So there, for the benefit ot 
any reader who wants to be- 
come a writing journalist, is 
the secret. The difficulty is not 
writing to deadlines. It is writ- 
ing at all. For the bulk of us. 
if we did not first take the 
relatively er/y step of commit- 
ing ourselves in advance to 


deadlines, we ’would never pro- 
duce anything. 

The only parallel in my ex- 
perience lies in my attempts 
to become a high-grade judo- 
man, which involves fighting 
other people - who for some 
reason always seem to.be bigger 
and fiercer than you are. 

When kneeling to face one 
of - them across the mat just 
before the start of a serious 
contest I invariably found my- 
self thinking the same thing- 
It was “If only I had taken 
the precaution of not coming 
to this place today, I would 
not now be in this desperate 
situation." But having gone 
there, and with the contest un- 
avoidable, I muddled through 
somehow and someti mes won. 

No doubt whoever goes to 
Money Which? will find the 
same. If so, it may be a com- 
fort to the recruit to know 
that while the pain of writing 
never gets any less, you learn 
over time to bear it more cheer- 
fully. 

Given the initial foolhardi- 
ness, candidates for the job will 
also need the ability to solve 
complicated intellectual prob- 
lems, to cut through obscure 
detail, jargon and “popular 
mythology " to the. nub of the 
issue concerned, and to express 
complex concepts., in terms 
which are readily understand- 
able to the lay reader. 

Mr. Watts thinks that this 
prescription implies the need 


for a good degree, but from my 
own experience of a good many 
honours graduates I would con- 
clude that the two things are 
necessarily coimected. 

He also prescribes at least a 
year in the working world since 
graduating. While work of a fin- 
ancial nature during this period 
would certainly be no disadvant- 
age, familiarity with monetary 
matters is less important than 
the possession of “a lively, in- 
quiring mind and the ability to 
think clearly and concisely.” 

The newcomer will, by the 
way, be able to call on the aid 
of a panel of independent finan- 
cial experts retained by the 
magazine as consultants. 

There will be a starting salary 
of around -£5,450 for the initial 
12-month trial period which, 
successfully completed, would 
be followed by a three-year con- 
tract- Working hours are 10 am. 
to 6 p.m. 

Applications outlining your 
experience, should be sent to 
the personnel manager, Which?, 
The Consumers’ Association, 14 
Buckingham Street. London 
WC2N 6DS. Dave Watts would 
probably be willing to answer 
relevant inquiries telephoned to 
01-839 1222 — deadlines per- 
mitting, of course. 

And having dwelt earlier on 
the strains of being a journalist, 
Td better say now that I would 
not change it for any of the 
other ways of earning a near- 
living that I know about.

Schlitz returns to JWT 


BY OAVID LASCHJJES, NEW YORK. 


THE TURBULENT and fiercely 
competitive TJJS. beer market has 
just" produced . one . of its big 
account changes. Jos. Schlitz, the 
Milwaukee brewer whose ads are 
based bn a “Gusto'* theme, said 
at the beginning of the year that 
it was unhappy with the way 
things were going with the Leo 
•Burnett . agency which had 
handled its account since 196L 
It wanted a change. 

Eleven., agencies were invited 
to -submit ideas. By -March these 
had been whittled down to six, 
at' which stage Lea Burnett, 
which had been Included, 
dropped out of the race. Finally, 
after what the Schlitz manage- 
ment described ’ as a “tough 
decision between truly outstand- 
ing .presentations*” the account 
was awarded not. to one but three 
different agencies. 

J. Walter Thompson has been 
named as agency for SchlitzBeer, 
and Benton and Bowles for 
Schlitz Mall -Liquor. . Cunning- 
ham and. Walsh continues as the 
agency ..for the brewer’s two- 
other major, products, Schlitz 
Light Beef and Old; Milwaukee. 

But though - , these agencies 
stand to share an- account- esti- 
mated by., advertising industry 
sources to he worth some $22m 
to $23ra, they also face an uphill 

St ScWitL long the No. 2 brewer 
*n the US- after Anheuser-Busph. 
is going through a sticky patch. 


It was recently edged out of the 
No. 2 slot by .MUIer Brewing, 
the aggressive Vans bi diary of 
Philip Morris,, fee - tobacco com- 
pany, and it reported declining 
sales last year'TorThe first time 
in several decades. 

Although part of .these difficul- 
ties are due to bad. management 
decisions, iocludSag failure to 
recognise the fast-growing mar- 
ket for light or lager-type beers, 
the decline in j the company s 
once-excellent advertising Is also 
to blame, say $oui®p-. 

Last year, inSgibat is ack- 
nowledged to ha^- been an ill- 

advised campaignsiiaenes of t v 
ads showed Supposed Schlitz 
drinkers reacting fiercely to 
suggestions thattbby try another 
brew. The serie*.b«ame dubbed 
as the “Drink Sqgtitz or 1 U kill 
you ” approach,.. wad- propabiy 

frightened man^^er-Jppleis 
off. Since ThwuJjclilitz has 
reverted to tbil^y® 3®j} 
have Schlitz, y%don*tbave 
gusto " theme. butUamage had 
been done which Jxjpe short of a 
complete rethink <OTQd mend. 

The big questjgt now is 
whether the newiSjCampaigns, 
which will probab^APPear in 
August, will stick gusto 

theme, even in a 
Gusto has been the-Scajltz catch- 
phrase for over te^.yejffcm an 
industry, where brand .jRomera- 
tlon ■ is ' enormous and^iWWcteS 


that ideniifies a brew in the 
public’s mind is worth hanging 
on to. On the other band, 
.Schlitz may decide it’s time for 
a complete change. 

In this regard, it's worth not- 
ing that the two new agencies 
have quite different experiences 
in brewing advertising. To JWT, 
it is a familiar field. Apart 
from being Scblitz’s agency 
before Leo Burnett, JWT has 
handled other bears including 
Hamm's and Meister Brau. 
Benton and Bowles, on the other 
hand, bad never directly handled 
a brew before. 

A big figure in whatever does 
emerge is likely to be Schlite’s 
new marketing manager, Alim 
Proudfoot, who, apart from 
being six feet six inches tall, 
has just joined the company from 
Coca-Cola where he was head 
of sales. The decision to change 
agencies was made before be 
appeared on the scene hut it 
was Proudfoot who headed the 
agency selection process and who 
will be keeping a close eye on 
the Schlitz image from now on. 

• In the first quarter this 
year, Schlitz sales fell 10.5 per 
cent* on the same quarter last 
year to $231m. The company 
showed a net loss of SLfln com- 
pared with net earnings of 
S7.4m the previous year *ne 
1077 sales decline was 6.6 per 
cent -

shelf: Oxo. Stork, Typhoo Tea, 

Bisto. Horlicks. Howls. Lucozade, 

Heinz Baked Beans, etc.). "There 
are of course, wide variations 
around the average," says Mr. 

King, “but detailed analysis of 
the expenditure for the 160 or 
so advertised brands of tbe top 
10 advertisers shows a very 
similar picture." 

What was equally worrying, 
said Mr. King, was that branding

Protecting individuals against 


IY PETER RIDDELL 


THE OVERWHELMING endorse- 
ment. of proposition 13 in Caij- 
fnrriia— cutting property taxes 
and limiting the growth of 
revenue — should be seen as a 
warning about how not to take 
major policy decisions. Instead 
the vote has become a beacon, 
encouraging similar anti-public 
sector protest movements else- 
where in the U.S. and abroad. 
If was perhaps inevitable that 
this bandwagon would not take 
lung to attract someone like Dr. 
Rhode* Eoyson. He has said a 
ronservutive Government should 
consider holding a referendum 
limiting personal taxation as weU 
a.-; one on capital punishment. 


EifrC referendum 


This kind of populism must 
produce the occasional wine 
some of Dr. Boyson's 
more thoughtful and less 
publicity - conscious colleagues, 
including those on the Shadow 
Treasury team. But it is the 
price we must presumably pay 
for the successful advocacy of a 
ip ter end uni on the EEC by Mr. 
Anthony Wedgwood Benn. 

This is not to underestimate 
the significance of the growing 
i'-uidii: objection to the level of 
taxation on both sides of the 
Atlantic. It is quite risht that 
politicians should respond to 
iliis concern. The question 
really is how the response should 
Le channelled and whether a rep- 
ri-sr illative method is belter than 
the direct exercise of the popular 
‘-'. iff through referenda. 

The problem is that the 
referendum route docs not allow 
a balanced consideration of the 
•r;n? 0 ! Lienees of a tax-cutting 
n*:c»su»n. My own view after 
vi'-itmg California for several 
»!."•» during the campaign is that 
:■ fcrp.nduni is the worst pos- 
sible way uf curbing the size of 
the public sector. 

Supporters of ihe tax-cutting 
proposal frequently suggested 
I ha: approval would not mean 
the loss or significant disruption 
i f vii:.I public services. They 
«ugge: ; i*'d in effect that Cali- 
firmans could have it both ways: 
i lie lus:-. of more lhan a fifth of 
local revenue could be offset by 
:he elimination of waste and, 
i -turs crudely, by cutting back 
r>n welfare payments. The 
.'•inner view was given respecta- 
bility by Professor Milton Fried- 
man. now a San Francisco resi- 
dent. whii appeared in a series 
•if television commercials in 
supnort of the proposal. 

The- opponents of the proposal, 
including both Governor Jerry 
Bmtyr and the Bank of America, 
presented their own alternative 
ux-ciming scheme. And local 


authorities pre^ente’d hypt* 
•toetical budgets. ; ahowiqg ■ tb? 
implications— for. example 1 ,- large 
.cutbacks in the police force. But 
"this was not conyjtydng enough 
and a Los A ngeles ^ftimes' pol 1 
Just after the ballot flowed- that 
a half of those who supported 
proposition 13 believed there 
would not have fa. he 'any reduc- 
tion in services- 

The immediate result of the 
vote -is almost certain, to be a 
smaller 'cutback than. die. oppo- 
nents warned, but this ia likely 
to be a misleading guide. After 
all, it is election year and Jerry 
Brown is looking for big re- 
election margin in November to 
sustain his presidential ambi- 
tions in 19S0. So he will clearly 
want to try and minimise the 
short-term disruption of ser- 
vices. a state budget surplus of 
over S5bn will allow him to offset 
a large part of the $7bn lost 
revenue in the first year at least. 


A CONTRIBUTOR to the letters 
cplyron : df -The Times recently 
■asked ', rhetorically how an 
Italian judge presiding over tbe 
European Court of Human 
Jtigbfs, ; ; sitting with. judicial 
colleagues from Denmark, Fin- 
land, ^Maltai France and West 
Germany (omitting the seventh 
judge of the Court who came 
from the UK) could possibly 
understand the social and 
political conditions, ok the Iale 
of Man in- determining whether 
the birching -of a l&-year-old 
was a degrading punishment 

The correspondent's mis- 
understanding of this inter- 
national tribunal that sits in 
Strasbourg under the auspices 
of the Council of Europe is a 
common reaction among the 
British public. Each of the 18 
members appoints a judge to- the 
Court There is almost a sense 
of disbelief in Britain that the 
law and practice of these islands 
could ever be impinged upon by 
courts elsewhere. 


The longer-term impact will 
presumably be more severe with 
cuts in spending under consider- 
ation on law and order, educa- 
tion and environmental services. 
The effects are also likely to be 
more acute for the poor, while 
the benefits of the cut in taxes 
will go disproportionately to 
private landlords. 

All these points were raised 
during the campaign but the fact 
that voters were only asked to ! 
respond to a one-sided question 
meant that the consequences 
could easily be dismissed. This 
response has been taken even 
further in a recent vote in Ohio 
which went against a rise in 
property taxes even though this 
could mean that the schools in 
Cleveland do not reopen this 
autumn. 

There are. of course, more 
sophisticated versions of tbe 
tax revolt such as the moves to 
impose fixed limits on the level 
and rate of growth of state 
spending and to require the 
federal government to have a 
balanced budget. Some of the 
wilder ideas are unlikely to be 
taken up seriously in toe UK. 
But there is the danger that a 
desire to cut taxes almost at all 
costs will lead to unbalanced 
decisions. There is certainly 3 
strong case for limiting tbe 
growth of the public sector, and 
in particular of certain kinds of 
transfer payments. However, to 
aebieve this goal in a haphazard 
and sudden way. as seems likely 
in California, will only produce 
an inadequate standard of 
certain services as well as risk- 
ing increased social divisions and 
an eventual sharp counter- 
reaction. 


To understand this inter- 
national tribunal of growing 
importance to our civilised 
existence one has to go back to 
its origins. In the wake of the 
most traumatic onslaught in 
European history upon human 


dignity and rights— tbe Nazi 
holocaust — the nations of 
Western Europe established in 
the late 1940s the Council of 
Europe. One of its first steps 
was to draft the Convention of 
Human Rights and Funda- 
mental Freedom of November 4, 
1950. 

History had all too con- 
vincingly and devastating!:' 
shown how inadequate were the 
traditional concepts of human 
rights at the level of national 
institutions. The creation of the 
Council of Europe and the adop- 
tion of a Human Rights Conven- 
tion were the first tentative 
acknowldgement that protection 
could no longer be left to the 
tender mercies of national 
governments and national laws. 

The beginnings of this new 
venture in human rights within 
an international context were 
modest. Although the Conven- 
tion specifically envisaged indi- 
vidual citizens bringing their 
grievances to Strasbourg, that 
right had to be conferred by 
individual governments as a 
separate act of accession to the 
Convention. It was not until 
1966 that the right of individual 
petition was granted by the 
British Government, and inevit- 
ably prompted the growth of 
litigation that has been wit- 
nessed in the past few years. 


The right of individual peti- 
tion had long been resisted by 
Britain on the ground that it 
would be contrary to the 
accepted doctrine that states, 
not individuals, were the proper 
subjects of international law. 
That view did not prevail how- 
ever, and the right is now firmly 
established. 

The Convention is adminis- 
tered by two bodies- — the 
European Commission of 
Human Rights and the European- 
Court of Human Rights. 
Initially all applications go 
before the Commission. That 
body has three distinct 
functions. It first has to 
examine the admissibility of 
applications by individuals and 
states. The great majority of 
the applications never get past 
the first stage. The usual 
grounds for inadmissibility are 
that the applicant has failed to 
exhaust bis remedies in the 
courts of bis own country or 
that the complaint is manifestly 
ill-founded. 

Once tbe Commission finds 
an application is admissible, it 
proceeds to establish the facts 
of the case. At the same time 
it takes on the role of con- 
ciliator and places itself at the 
disposal of the parties with a 
view to securing a friendly 
settlement It is only where a 
settlement cannot be achieved 


that the Commission <Hws up a 
report on the facts rod states 
its opinion whether ihere has 
been a breach of tbjj Conven- 
tion. | . 

The final detisi on \ whether 
there has been a breach of the 
Convention is then tak#n by the 
Council of Ministers, or if the 
case is referred to by the 
European Court. RtfApenee can 
only be made either., by the 
Commission or the Government 
against whom toe complaint has 
been made. The individual 
comnlainant has no before 
the Court, although in practice 
he may be heard as Pitrt of the 
legal team for the Commission. 
The judgment of the . Court as 
final and binding. and its prin 
nouncemen-ts on the wkerpreta- 
tion of the Convention. have 
much greater authority than 
those of the Commission. The 
Council of Ministers . then has 
the task of supervising the 
execution of the Court's judg- 
ment Whereas the -Commis- 
sion’s proceedings aro all held 
■in private, and parties are not 
permitted to reveal what has 
happened (although leaks to the 
Press are a common, occur- 
rence) those before the Court 
are conducted under -the spot- 
light of Press and public. 

Not unnaturally the Court 


proceedings bear little resem- 
blance to an- English . 

-Cases are conducted mostly by 
written submissions, and toe 
oral bearings do n°t have toe 
significance that, they ..do m 
Britain, The advocates tend to 
read prepared speeches without 
interruption from the Judges, 
At the conclusion, -toe judges 
sometimes ask questions which 
the parties are normally given 
time to answer. Ihe cut-apd- 
tfaruct of forensic debate is al- 
most wholly absent All this, is 
alien, and even strange, to the 
English, lawyer . used to, toe 
essential orality of the English 
courtroom- There are*- however, 
signs that English- habits- are 
beginning to permeate- toe pro- 
ceedings. This is particularly 
true before toe Commission, 
which has as its president, £ro-- 
fessor James Fawcett who fa 
an. English academic lawyer- of 
international distinction. 'Under 
his influence toe Commissioners 
do question the lawyers without 
ever approaching the state of 
garrulity which is the occupa- 
tional disease of .some- English 
judges, . ...... 

- The outstanding characterise 
tic of the Strasbourg^ CqwV 
which is lost sight of- -by: cook 
ns rotators, is that ^operates 
in thd context of * single ^Can- 1 
vention and outside any unified 
social system.. . 'Tbe Court, is 


purely and . simply concerned-; 
with the human rights enunci- 
ated in the Convention.: When 
it. finds a human rights issue, 
such as fioggihg or third degree 
methods of iaterrogatiwi, -it 
.tends to pursue toe point to its 
togirai. conclusion. And it does 
SQ/gven though it means' ridtog 
roughshod-over various factors, 
such as public opinion o? social 
policy, , that one finds are' the

tical and social system. Is better 

equipped jto bring ihbi play call, 
tbe factors that would modify 
the strict application of a parti- 
cular human right; Once, that 
fact is understood, the rulings 
of the Strasbourg Court become 
both intelligible and under- 
standable, Whether successive 
British Governments find this 
icind 6* international tribunal 
tolerable trill largely determine 
whether -we .shall shortly- have 
a_ modern Bill of Rights. For 
if the courts at .home begin to 
engage in the enforcement 0 f 
human rights, there win he less

r MM KRi AiNMKNi GUIDE 


THIS AFTERNOON'S Newbury 
Summer Cup has the makings of 
an intriguing race. There are 
only six runners, but each has 
a claim to consideration. 

The likely outcome is a victory

for Ron Smyth’s course winner, 
Marakas. is a son of tbe late 
Bernard van Cutsem’s Washing- 
ton International winner, 
Kurabas. 

This powerfully made bay 
showed his best form on his most 
recent appearance. He comfort- 
ably accounted for tbe favorite. 
Nation Wide, in a four-runner 
handicap at Goodwood. 

That race was over 1? miles, 
but I bave little doubt that 
Marakas will be equally effective 
over this return to li miles. It 
was over this trip and II fur- 
longs that the Epsom four-year- 


old showed his best form last 
year. 

Both Town and Country and 
Bright Fire look strong possi- 
bilities for anyone brave enouch 
to try for the forecast The first- 
named. not harshly treated with

■races this term The veteran of 
the party. Bright Fire cun 
usually be relied on to find his 
best form here. 

Several progressive middle- 
distance performers are due to 
clash in the Foxhill Stakes, in 
which Town and Country’s stable 
companion. Latin Luck, will be 
carrying top weight of S st 13 lb. 

It is difficult to gauge hn-.v 
good this Homeric colt h. He 
beat Calibrator by three lengths 
in a 15-runner maiden event over 
this course and distance on his 
reappearance this spring. Subse- 
quently he went to Ascot Like 
several other runners here, be 
became bogged down behind 
Leonardo da Vinci in the White 
Rose Stakes. 

T expect Latin Luck to po>c- 
tbe chief threat to the beauti- 
fully bred Stephan o. a chestnut 
colt by Royal Palace out of th* 


Court Martial mare. Nerissa. 
Stephano, who has a six pound 
advantage over Latin Luck, for 
a hat-trick, which could be with- 
in his compass off his current 
mark. 

I do not intend opposing 
Saved by the Bell in the Child-;

Saker's Finance and Investment Corporation Limited 
Audited preliminary profit announcement 

The group's trading results have recovered to a reasonable level, considering the prevailing 
conditions in the motor industry during the financial year. As wifi be seen from the figures below, 
sales in Rand terms were marginally lower than Iasi year, but ihe net operating profit before tav and 
interest improved by R370 000 (10.7%), As was expected, there were material savings in interest 
paid amounting to R666 000 (27,0%).. Another important factor was ihe control of operating 
expenses excluding interest, which only increased by 0.5% over the prior financial year. Earnings for 
shareholders improved by R376 000 (92.4%). albeu from a relatively low base. 

The balance sheet reflects a significant improvement in the group's liquidity as a result of sound asset 
management and the decision c-f the board to divesi from us investment in hire purchase finance 
'and vehicle leasing. The decision to divest was taken because this investment was not producing an 
acceptable return on the assets employed and as a result was depressing the group's overall return 
on assets. The full benefits of this decision will.be realised in the forthcoming yea:. The substantial 
improvement in the liquidity of the group provides j new and lower base from which the group 
can develop and improve its return on ‘net assets in the future. 

Your board has declared a dividend of 4 cerits per share in respect of ihe year ending 31 March 1 978. 
Annual repons will be mailed on or about 30 June 1 973.

Location of Offices Bureau in 
resiting companies away from 
London and virtually sounded 
the death-knell to future 
expansion of the new towns. 

In place of these * engines of 
exodus, *’ the Government has 
adopted a short-term strategy 
of providing special help to 
regenerate the toner cities and, 
long-term, to encourage local 
authorities to do. more to 
prevent such decay taking place 
again. 

Help for London is being 
made available by the Govern- 
ment in two ways. First, there 
is tbe concept of ‘‘partner- 
. ship ” areas as a means of 
identifying those areas most in 
need of help. Thus tbe dock- 
lands area of Loudon, the 
adjacent London boroughs of 
Hackney and . Islington,, and 
Lambeth are three of the seven 
partnership areas, designated 
by the Government.' These 
areas are drawing Tip a three- 
year programme .for action to 
start in the 197930 financial 
year. The existing urban pro- 
gramme's. allocation of £30m a 
year is to to increased , to 
£X25m a year. The second 
means : of help is tbe. Inner 
Urban Areas -Bill which is going 
through its final stages in the 
Commons. 

The Bill will empower local 
authorities to make, loans at 
commercial rates for land pur- 
chase as well as construction 
and modification of buildings 
and installation of- services, of 
up to 90 per cent of the value 
of tbe land and buildings. In 
addition the Bill wiH establish 
Industrial Improvement Areas 
where local authorities can 
give’ grants or loans for 
environmental improvements 
«*r for building complexes to 
provide new jobs. . 

In specific partnership areas, 
local authorities will be able to 
give grants towards rents and 
to help companies taking on 
leases not owned by tbe local . 
authority. And interest free 
loans for up to two years will 
be available for bringing inner - 
cities back into use. 

The London Chamber of 
Commerce, however, goes 
further and suggests that inner 
London be. designated as ao 
assisted area for a. limited 
period of ten years. ' 

In the ehd. the problems of 
regenerating; London are too - 
vast to be dealt with by local 
government alone. .County Hall 
dobs not bave the powers to 
reverse' tbe national planning .. 
policies that have accentuated 
Loudon's decline, nor does it 
have the cash resources fully 
to counter the effects of that 
policy. Although the Inner 
Urban Areas. Bill does recog- 
nise the problems of declining 
cities its benefits will be spread 
nationally. And it is difficult to 
see bow London will be able to 
Wield the political Influence 
necessary to attract sufficient 
additional central government 
support to move beyond the 
stage of tinkering around the 
edge of the capital’s problems.

MAHERS 


THE U.S. Civil Aeronautics 
Board's proposal to withdraw 
U.S. airlines from the Inter- 
national Air Transport Associa- 
tion's fares agreements would 
appear to be ihe final body blow 
in IATA's role as a price-fixing 
body. It comes as LATA is 
itself about tn discuss the 
report of an internal committee 
prnpusin^ a fundamental re- 
casting of its fares-fixing 
activities. What the CAB is in 
effect saying — particularly to 
airlines which may be averse 
tn change — is that, radical 
though LATA’s own ideas may 
be. they dn not go far enough 
in satisfy the U.S. civil aviation 
authorities. 

The IATA reforms, which 
were drawn up by a five-man 
committee of airline chairmen 
and chief executives, would pro- 
vide considerable scope for 
competition in both price and 
service by making participation 
in the organisation's fares con- 
ferences optional rather than 
compulsory and by abandoning 
most of the rules which now 
govern the kind of in-flight 
service members can offer 

The IATA meeting at Mon- 
treal at the end of this month 
tn discuss these changes is 
likely to bo a contentious affair 

for the prospect of open com- 
petition is more than some air- 
lines — and governments — can 
stomach, while the committee's 
proposals arc tho barest mini- 
mum some of the bigger carriers, 
Mich as Pan American and 
British Airways, are prepared 
to accept if they are to remain 
in the organisation. The chances 
uf the proposals, or something 
like them, getting through have 
therefore been considerably im- 
proved by the CAB move. 

The threat to IATA's cartel 
activities has been building up 
fur some time and can be traced 
Lo tbe marked changes in the 
market for air travel. Airlines 
responded in the growth of 


tourist and student traffic — and 
of qou-IATA charter airline: 
by progressively adding to the 
multiplicity and complexity of 
fares structures designed origin- 
ally to cater for business travel. 
The final blows were the intro- 
duction of the Laker Sky train 
service last year, the growing 
awareness on the part of some 
governments of the “ consumer 
interest," and — perhaps most of 
all — the determination of the 
U.S. authorities to bring about 
a more competitive climate. 

The attitude of the U.S. 
authorities has to be seen in 
the wider context of their 
changing views towards regula- 
tory policy in transport 
generally. Internal air services 
in the U.S. have already been 
substantially de-regulated and a 
similar approach is now being 
applied to the U.S. trucking, or 
road haulage, industry. Inter- 
national liner shipping confer- 
ences have of course long 
attracted the attention of the 
U.S. anti-trust authorities but 
here the position is more com- 
plex- The U.S. merchant fleet is 
competitively far weaker than 
the U.S. airlines: it carries only 
5 per cent of U.S. seaborne 
trade and, as in many develop- 
ing nations, there is considerable 
U.S. support for a system of 
cargo preferences for defence 
as well as employment reasons. 
Moreover, the shipping confer- 
ences are being pressed hard 
by the rapid build-up of the 
Russian maritime fleet 

The end of the air fares cartel 
on the North Atlantic and else- 
where will not lead to totally 
free competition. Governments 
have national flag carriers, 
many of them State-owned, as 
well as the consumer to protect 
But the presence of effective 
competition in price and ser- 
vice is by far the best guaran- 
tee of the consumer interest and 
should reduce the need for 
regulatory intervention on at 
least the busier routes. 


| Scooping francs 
in green fingers 

Locust clouds of financial 
journalists have descended upon 
Paris for the meeting of OECD 
ministers, but it was the really 
important happening which 
drew me to the French capital. 
I refer to the exhibition of 
gardening equipment behind 
the residence of Sir Nicholas 
Henderson, our ambassador. 
Although Britain may be having 
trouble in exporting motor cars 
and textiles, take comfort that 
we are doing great business 
with hedge trimmers, plastic- 
covered rose trellises and lawn 
mowers. 

France lias become a prime 
market. There was a sense of 
sylvan euphoria as I strolled 
with Sir Nicholas amid the 
astounding scene in his back 
garden, hardly a flowerpot's 
throw from the Elysee Palace. 
More than 40 British firms bave 
set up shop on the ambas- 
sadorial lawn. His Excellency, 
himself a renowned gardener, 

□ever flinched as a man from 
Stanley Tools stabbed a forest 
of shears Into the grass. Else- 
where, final nails were being 
hammered into a summerhouse: 
formidable stacks of fertilisers, 
all labelled in French, awaited 
the hundreds of wholesalers 
and garden-centre owners 
invited to the show; and 73-year- 
old Harold HUlier of Win- 
chester, doyen of British 
nurserymen, surveyed his glow- 
ing display of shrubs and plants. 

Hillier handed me his price- 
list, starting (at two francs 70 
centimes) with Abutilon mega- 
potamicum M Variegatiun." 
Definitely a show for the cogno- 
scenti — but one lawn-mower 
firm took £500,000-worth of 
orders after last year’s 
inaugural promotion. ‘The 
French have become a nation 
of gardeners,” Sir Nicholas said. 
A lot of them have second 
homes nowadays." But why do 



“I'm going to complain to 
the Foreign Office! ” 

they buy garden equipment 
from the nation of shopkeepers? 
Aubrey Carroll, an exhibitor 
from Liphook in Hampshire, 
who specialises in garden 
arches, said cheerfully: ‘The 
French manufacturers are 15 
years behind.” 

In one corner was a ready- 
made pond, adorned with a 
plastic nymph and a frog that 
blew water out of its mouth. I 

thought Sir Nicholas viewed that 
exhibit with a gentle disdain. 
Perhaps he recalled an article 
by some wretched inleUectua! 
in Le Monde after the 1977 
show, mocking the English for 
exporting garden gnomes. We 
can take it Yesterday ihe sun 
shone and the orders were 
blossoming. 

Minister’s choice 

Having emerged from the 
embassy shrubbery', I collected 
a titbit from the OECD. The 
man most likely to succeed to 


the job of president of the 24- 
nation Council of Finance 
Ministers is 40-year-old Dr. 
Hannes Androsch, Austrian 
Vice-Chancellor and Finance 
Minister. After almost certainly 
being elected in Paris today, he 
will fly to London for talks with 
Den|s Healey and Harold Lever. 
Andyosch has held Austria's 
purse-strings for more than 
eight years and wants a change 
of interest. 

The post he had half coveted 
of i president of the Austrian 
National Bank went to the 
articulate Opposition spokesman 
on economic affairs, Stefan 
Keren. Androsch wrily said: 
“It’s like making love to Sophia 
Loren. If there’s no possibility, 
you don’t even think about it 
I knew my own Socialist Party 
bad other plans for me." 

Milord files out 

I strolled around to the rue du 
Colasee, just off the Champs 
Elysee, in the hope of chatting 
to Lord Brooke. But the man 
whose name makes the British 
art establishment shudder 
apparently feels that Paris is 
too close to home just now. 
While the National Gallery 
leads the last-ditch fight to save 
for Britain a £250,000 Canaletto 
of Warwick Castle, Brooke’s 
family home, he has flown off 
to Idaho. I am told he will not 
be returning to Europe until 
September. From Idaho he will 
go to Bermuda for the summer, 
well away from criticisms of the 
manner in which he has already 
soid off more than £2m-worth 
of art treasures from the castle, 
with more in the pipeline. 

Brooke has made it plain to 
friends in France that he 
intends to keep on disposing 
of the castle's contents-— Inc] ud- 
ing pictures by Van Dyck, 
Rubens and Kneller— when the 


market is right. He keeps in 
close touch with his Bond Street 
agent There is also much silver, 
armour and antique furniture to 
be auctioned or privately sold. 
In all, Brooke may accumulate 
£5m. 

In Paris. Brooke— who is 44 
and divorced — leads a busy 
social life. But he keeps away 
from journalists. He is known 
to believe that Britain will soon 
be under an extreme left-wing 
regime, so that he must realise 
the family assets while he has 
time. 

His father, the Earl of 
Warwick, has made over the 
castle an its contents to Lord 
Brooke. Tbe earl is also a tax 
exile; he lives in Rome. Asked 
on the telephone how he feels 
about the family home these 
days, he has said: “It stinks of 
old shoes, old socks and wet 
mackintoshes. It is up to the 
Government to decide whether 
it wants to preserve it or not” 

Peter in Paris 

If an Ecology Party is formed 
in Britain, a likely leader will 
be Peter Ustinov. He is in Paris 
to address a UN-sponsored 
“Round Table” on the theme: 
"WHat world shall we leave for 
our children?" Ustinov tells me 
he played a large part in pro- 
moting the gathering: among 
other speakers is Princess 
Caroline of Monaco. After 
enthusing about the ecologists 1 
recent election success In north 
Germany, Ustinov in his droll 
way told me about a Swiss 
woman he had met in Kenya. 
She had been sleeping beside 
a swimming pool and awoke to 
find a deadly green mamba 
entwined around the leg of her 
deck chair. As people rushed 
up w kill it, she cried: “Stop— 
you are destroying the ecology 
of Africa!"

by the Cambridge University 
press). 

Like most promising pro- 
posals, this one is basically 
simple. A proportion of clearing 
bank deposits with the Bank of 
England would be reclassified as 
Reserve Deposits (RDs). Other 
banking institutions would also 
be allotted RDs which they 
would acquire through sale of 
Government securities. 

The authorities would set a 
ratio of RDs to bank deposits 
and deviations from this ratio 
would he subject to financial 
penalties. The Bank of England 
would control the money supply 
by conventional open market 
operations. If for instance it 
wished to reduce the money 
supply, ir would sell Govern- 
meut securities to people and 

institutions, who. when they 
wrote their cheques in payment, 
-would be reducing the deposits 
of their banks with the Bank of 
England. The latter institution 
would immediately debit the 
banks’ RD accounts by the 
amount of the security, thereby 
leading to a multiple contraction 
of deposits. 

This is basically a cash ratio 
system with modifications. One 
of these is that variations in 
public holdings of notes and 
coins would not have a multiple 
effect on ihc money supply, as 
they would under a pure cash 
ratio system. The other is that 
the Bank of England would be 
able to make an extremely dtf.c 
estimate of the money supply 
on a week to week basis, simply 
by looking up the number of 
RDs outstanding in its own 
books, and multiplying them by 
the. reciprocal of the proposed 
reserve ratio. 

Like any cash ratio control, 
the Duck-Sheppard scheme 
would divorce monetary from 
fiscal policy and make the Bank 
and Treasury separately 


accountable. An excessive Gov- 
ernment deficit would still 
increase loan demand and push 
up interest rates, but the precise 
method of Government finance 
would no longer be crucial for 
monetary policy. In particular 
the issue of Treasury Bills 
would no longer be inflationary, 
as Bills would no longer count 
as reserve assets. 

The Bank of England’s 
advisers are said to be hostile 
to such Ideas because they 
would supposedly increase the 
volatility of short term interest 
rates. Readers are referred to 
the chart for an illustration of 


hardly surprising that chauges 
in exchange rates and in the 
price of manufactured goods 
have roughly offset each other. 
Internationally traded products 
are likely to be sold at a com- 
mon price level if they are to 
attract any buyers. 

The main >hort to medium 
term effect of exchange rate 
changes is on the profitability 
of countries' international 
trading sectors, contrary to the 
belief that exchange rates have 
not worked, the table shows a 
dramatic shift in relative profit- 
ability in the right direction. 
This is demonstrated in the

the great stability of interest 
rates under existing methods. 
Maybe the Bank experts do not 
sufficiently distinguish between 
the loss of day-to-day control 
over short-term interest rates, 
which is one thing, and 
volatility in the movement of 
rates, which is another. 


“ LARGE CHANGES in 
nominal exchange rates have 
usually been associated with 
small changes in real rates and 
therefore with only small 
changes in competitiveness.” 
These remarks of Mr. Gordon 
Richardson in Berne this week 
are illustrated in the table. 

Unfortunately, there is a 
danger of wrong conclusions be- 
ing drawn from such data. It is 


right hand v.-uliunn for the two 
countries wuh a major current 
accounr imbalance, the U.S. and 
Japan. (A negative sign means 
greater profitability in ihe 
trading scciur.j Little change is 
shown for the UK and Germany: 
but the UK is, so far this year 
almost in current balance, the 
May trade figures notwithstand- 
ing, while the German surplus 
makes an extremely small con- 
tribution to world imbalances. 

Exchange rate changes do 
affect comparative inflation 
rates, and by far more than 
most economic forecasters 
would admit. But exchange rate 
changes do not just happen, but 
in turn reflect different national 
rates of monetary expansion in 
relation to the growth of pro- 
ductive capacity. 


Esdiange rates can for a time 
be shifted from their under- 
lying paths by events such as 
changes in portfolio preferences 
by reserve holders, nr by North 
Sea developments or American 
oil imports. But auch events 
can have a lasting influence 
only if they in turn 'affect rela- 
tive rates of monetary expan- 
sion in the countries concerned. 

This is important in relation 
to European monetary union for 
which 1 expressed some quali- 
fied sympathy a few months ago. 
'VVhat I had m mind was mainly 
the development of a E»rc.pa 
as a new international trading 
currency, an alternative to ex- 
isting national ones. There is 
also something to be said for the 
gradual harmonisation of 
national monetary policies to re- 
duce differences in underlying 
inflationary rates, and thus re- 
ducing exchange rate divergen- 
ces by an indirect hut sure road. 

If, however, monel ary union is 
lo mean forcing exchange rates 
back into the snake — or into a 
constrictive new version known 
as a boa — by means of official 
intervention, then the result is 
likely to be capital and trade re- 
strictions. followed by forced 
devaluations, as m past such 
aiiempis. 

If the newly d is in I erred 
central bankers’ dislike for 
floating rules is to mean pres- 
sure on the U.S. to "do some- 
thing ” about the dollar, then 
the result could be mnre painful 
still. Too many people have 
forgotten the U.S. import sur- 
charge imposed by the Secre- 
tary of the Treasury, John 
Connally, in 1971, which nearly 
resulted in a trade and 
currency war. It is nut world 
currency problems which 
should alarm us, but their pro- 
posed solutions.

As one of Europe's great chemicals 
and plastics groups DSM knows how 
important it is to clean up after the 
job is done. 

For instance, in The Netherlands 
this year, DSM will have spent some 
£35 million to make the River Meuse 
cleaner. To do the job DSM pioneered 
techniques which, take out. nitrogen 
impurities as well as organic matter. 
The plant that has been put to work 
on the Meuse will be big enough to 










\ 





deal with the waste produced every 
day by a city the size of Birmingham. 

Good news for Dutch farmers who 
will use the 130,000 tons of bacterial 
waste produced every year to improve 
their soil. 

So Meuse ’78 will be a great year. 
And the know-how that made it so 
will travel well. Soon there will be 
great years for the other rivers of the 
industrialised world. 

Water is a vital resource. DSM 
technology keeps it clean.

make a forecast although they 
view the future with confidence. 

Vehicle ; distribution i.s split 
fairly evenly between British Ley-

Leyiand dealership will be the 
sole operator from July l due 
io the IJrilish Leyiand reorgani-

company- Leyiand 's market 
share in that area is above the 
national average — the company 
puts it . at around 40 per cent. 

AI<o Hartwells has bought oul 
the Leyiand dealer competition 
in Baip and Banbury. So the 
directors are looking for a much 
larger market share this year.

of tbe diversification policy 
planned to achieve a greater

the atqui’riiion of Supara Invest-

The tea and coffee prices in 
1978 are tower than those pre- 
vailing during 1977 and. there- 
fore, it is unlikely that the profits 
for the current year will be as 
good as those for 1977, but in 
light of the diversification policy 
the level of maintainable profit 
is now higher than In previous 
years. 

Earnings are shown to be up

adooted SSAP 9 and did not write 
in massive stock profits in 1976 
as most of the other tea and 
coffee companies did. So the 
profits have only appeared in the 
accounts after the produce has 
actually been sold. In next year's 
accounts the tea and coffee profits 
will be lower but Supara. the 
Indonesian acquisition producing 
rubber and palm oil. will be 
consolidated for a full year 
instead of onlv 1} months. The 
Sunara deal has been made to 
look very good in the light of the 
hich value since put on London 
Sumatra's estates in Tbe recent 
bid battle. Meanwhile official 
sanction for the “ lndianisafion ” 
pronosals are expected shortly. 
And when the proceeds come in, 
perhaps Warren can find a wav 
to solve its irrecoverable ACT 
problem. In view of the diversi- 
fication both past and planned, 
the yield of 9.6 per cent, at 242p, 
looks attractive.

loss: no

TURNOVER OF MeNeDl Group, 

concrete and structural engineer- 
ing concern, was down from 
£13 .82m to £12.1m for the whole 
of 1977 and the group incurred a 
pre-tax loss of £L29m for the 
period compared with a small 
profit of £3,494. after an extra- 
ordinary debit Of £15,084 (£30,000». 

The directors state that the 
group experienced extremely diffi- 
cult trading conditions through- 
ouf lhe year and that the second 
half was particularly disappoint- 
ing; losses tor this period 

amounted to fi.l.im against £D.3m. 

The current year's trading has 
continued ro be difficult, although 
the benefit of recent orders 

obtained should help to Improve 
the position of the group. 

There is no dividend payment 
for 1977 compared with 2.850439 p

Extracts tram the Statement by the Chairman, Mr. G. F. B. Grant, at the Annual General Meeting 
held on 13th June, 1978 at which the accounts for the year ended 31st December, 1977 were 
adopted. 


"he Ninian Field 

l am very pleased to be able to report that the Ninian .. 

'entral Platform was safely installed at the location in the 
Jinian Field on 18th May.This platform was recognised as 
ne world's largest man-made movable object, weighing 
■ome 61 0,000 tons and costing about £270 million. Its . 

ow out and installation, which was a technically difficult 
>peration, is a considerable achievement both by the 
i onstructor and main contractor, Howard Doris, and by ^ 
he Field managers, Chevron, and all must now be very . 
l eased that it has gone so smoothty. . • 

pwjg. The Ninian Reid now tas two production platforms in 
with the thirdplatform expected to be towed our 
£ir&£*l> - 0 , r this month. The pipeline from the field to Sullom Voe 
he Shetlands has been laid. The terminal at Sullom ■ /; 

a, which will be the largest such terminal in Europe, 

'l has muchto be done before completion, but it is 
iiciently advanced to receive a nd load Ninian oil when ; ^ 
I l>duction starts. ... 

■ - The Ninian pipeline was originally constructed with • 

r 'are capacity. The Heather Field has already purchased , - 

‘ . 0.25% interest and final negotiations are taking place - 

ith BP regarding a possible interest for their Magnus 
•ield which is awaiting devejopment approval from the 
Department^ Energy. - . 

■ As I said in the Annual Report, there has been some 
delay in the commencement of production from Ninian 
compared withthe original target dates set some time _ 
aoo. Chevron have increased the offshore labour force in 

: orderto offset the effects of the exceptionally bad winter 
weather andan industrial dispute, and we expect oil 
production to commence before the end of this year. 

Exploration 

On the exploration front we hope to be making an 
application when the Sixth Round blocks and the 
Government's final terms are known. V\fe have recently 
entered into an agreement to share exploration costs in 
the UKSectorbf the English Channel and Western 
Approaches with Conoco North Sea, Incorporated ana 


-•v. 


Ranger Oil IUK) Limited. It is intended that all three 
companies will apply as a group in these areas with 
Conoco as operator. We have plans for partners in other 
areas covered by the Sixth Round, but these are not yet 
finalised. 

As previously announced, the exploration well . 
,^3/27-4 was abandoned after encountering shows 
' of hydrocarbons. While this result is a disappointment 
regarding the part of the geological structure tested by. 

. the well, we considerthatthe prospects forthis Block 
- merit further work. Another seismic survey is being 
conducted this summer and will be followed by 
'gdditionaldrilling. 

BP is continuing steadily with their farm-in well in 
Block 3/30. When completed, this well will be more than 
three miles deep and one of the deepest North Sea wells 
drilled to date.The targets are expected to be reached 
Within the next four weeks. 


Financial Arrangements 

As I mentioned in the Annual Report, the delay In the 
start of Ninian production increases ourpeak financial 
'■requirement. Our present borrowings are £76 million 
Unsecured Loan Stocks "and £15 million from our 
bankers.The remaining bankfacilityfora further £20 
million will not now be sufficient and we shall require 
additional funds before the end of the year. Discussions 
with our bankers for additional funds are proceeding 
and we shall make an announcement when these have 
been completed. 

Finally, you may have read with interest the recent 
report by Sir Harold Wilson's Committee on the City, 
which was published this month. LSMO was taken as a 
case study and put forward as being one of the best and 
most successful examples of British financial institutions' 
readiness to take risks and provide money for 
investment in the North Sea.The Board were 
commended for their determination and our advisers for 
their ingenuity and effort in the financing of our venture.

Robertson Foods below 
expectations at £2.7m 


FROM turnover of £72j33m. 
against 153.27m., profits before 
♦as of Robertson Foods rose from 
£2 58m. to a record 12.73m. iu the 
year ended March 31, 197S. 

However Mr. R. C. Robertson, 
the chairman, says the profit did 
not come up to expectation. At 
midway, when reporting pre-tax 
profits up from £881,000 to 
£909.000 (including £103,000 from 
Scotia Barry Foods), the directors 
were of the opinion that the full 
year's profit would show a satis- 
factory increase over the pre- 
vious year. 

After the satisfactory profit 
growth in the first half followed 
in particular by a good Christ- 
mas trade in mincemeat and 
puddings, abnormally difficult 
trading conditions in the last 
three months, to March 1978, 
were experienced in the UK. says 
the chairman. 

The existing price war among 
Food retail groups and a general 
fall in food consumption in the 
period meant that most UK food 
manufacturers have suffered 
adversely. 

But with selling prices shortly 
taking place on most of the 
group's products, margins should 
not be further eroded, says Mr. 
Robertson, and it is anticipated 
that the current year to March 
ISiTfl should show a satisfactory 
improvement over 19 1 <-78. 

The final dividend is 4.3511p net 
lifting the total payment from 
5 18.19P to a maximum permitted 
5.7249 m. 

Actual earnings per 23p share 
are shown ns 22.Sp 1 24. 52 pi and 
12.4 lp ( 12.33p i after notional UK 
lax charge at 52 per cent. 

The group profit would have 
been considerably better but sub- 
stantial increases in the prices of 
soft fruits and dried fruits the 
costs of financing the stocks of 
these materials were very high 
and the additional bank interest 
charges could not be fully re- 
covered in selling price increases. 

Canada, the group's major ex- 
port market, suffered from a weak 
dollar for a considerable part of 
The year which adversely affected 
profitability on sales to that 
country. 

The technical problems en- 
countered following the delayed 
installation of imported equip- 


ment for the increased breakfast 
cereals production took longer to 
overcome than bad been originally 
anticipated. 

The poor summer, followed by a 
mild autumn and early winter, 
affected the sales of the UK can- 
ning company. • 

However, the directors consider 
that the fall in the UK group pro- 
fit in 1978 is only a temporary 
seback. 

Peny S.-V the French canning, 
subsidiary which is now wholly 
owned, had an . outstanding year 
with a substantially higher profit 

and, assuming this year's crops 
are good it should have another 
excellent' result, says the chair- 


man. .... 

The current production in the 
breakfast cereals division is run- 
nine at a satisfactory level with 
demand exceeding supply: the 
Canadian dollar has improved and 
a reasonable summer could mean 
a slow down in increases in soft 
fruit prices. Mr. Robertson adds.

£10,000 at a time when industry 
grocery sales, by volume, dropped 
by around 4 per cent The impor- 
tant preserves division (half of 
group sales) struggled to main- 
tain volume while the availability 
of fresh produce knocked more 
than a quarter off volume sales 
of tinned fruit and vegetables. In 
contract, however, breakfast 
cereals (14 per cent of sales) 
showed a volume gain of about 
a quarter but unexpected 
technical problems with the new 
Canadian equipment, which cost 
£2. 5m. reduced profits in this 
division by 40 per cent. This 
should recover in the current 
year now that the "problems have 
been solved and there should be 
useful growth from cake mixes 
(the new Candora range intro- 
duced in April has already taken 
a tenth of the cake mix market). 
But, overall, with the main four 
supermarkets accounting for 
around 30 per cent of Robertson’s 
turnover, the outlook depends on 
the duration of the price war 
and bow soon margins can be 
restored. At 151p, the shares are 
on a p/e of 112 while the yield 
is almost 0 per cent compared 
with 05 and 5.6 per cent respec- 
tively for the food manufacturing 
sector.

BARCELONA, June 14* 
BANCO ATLANTICO. the largest 
Barcelona-based bank and ranked 
eleventh in the national han kin g 
league table, made a profit of 
Pta$54ra (S10.7m) in 1977. 
against PtaS50m in 1976, and 
boosted its deposits by 17 per 
cent to Pta76.3bn, of which 
nearly 1 Oper cent was in foreign 
currency. Capital and reserves 
now stand at Pta6.6bn while the 
bank has increased the number 
of its branches from 90 to 112, 
approximately a quarter of which 
are in Catalonia, with the rest 
covering most of Spain. 

Atlantico last year became the 
majority shareholder in the 
Banco Comerrial de Catalunya, 
operating almost exclusively in 
Catalonia, with 35 branches and 
some Pta llbn in deposits. In 
addition, Atlantico holds 50 ‘per 
cent of the equity of the insur- 
ance company Fenix Peninsular, 
25 per cent of interleasing SA, 
60 per cent of Bank Atlantico 
Zurich, and 50 per cent of the 
Panama-based Banco de Ebiro- 
america SA. It has a 3.3 per 
cent holding In the Banco Arabe 
Espanol (Aresbank). 

The main owner of Atlantico 
the Madrid-based Rumasa 
group whose chairman, Sr. Jose 
Maria Ruiz-Mateos, has recently 
been made vice-president of the 
bank’s Board. 

Rumasa officially admits to 
bolding 27 per cent of the 

Atlantico equity, but is now 
believed to hold a comfortable 
majority, without yet incorpor- 
ating either Atlantico or

Manufrance. .the " ‘ .financially 
troubled retail and small arms 
-.group, have been rejected by -the 
: main '-.trade unions representing 
the 'company's 3JJQ0 workers in 
'Saint-Ettenne.. .... 

• . The, biggest .of them, the CGT, 
fiaScatied for a 244iour. strike 
"arid 'demonstration tomorrow in

-involves making ‘334 - workers

loan conditionally earmarked for

Although . /the . -Gbmmnnjst-led 
CGT is fighting the plan, which 
alsbrne^ns dividing the company 
into "three separate manufactur- 
ing; : retail and publishing divi- 
sions, the. Communist mayor of 
Saint-Etienne, M. Joseph Sangue-' 
dolce, has changed bis- position, 
■and decided-to* sr u pgo riri r. “ TIfe ^

The mayor said it wais a 
question of accepting the propo- 
sals drawn/ upj - by M: Francois 
Gadot-CJet, the recently-installed 
chairman, or facing -bankruptcy. 

This meaqs.thatia fresh set of 
battle lines has been - drawn 
between -the lunions. QD.the one 
hand and on the other, the shared 
holders and the Government, 
Whose Offer of financial respite, 
gives implicit backing to the re- 
organisation plan.'- 
. The'. other mam unions, the 
left-wing-CFDT and the usually 
moderate Force Ouvriere, also 
rejected the plan. Although the 
white-collar, union, the CGC, has

“an. unacceptable ulthqatumf v

on its ■ new catalyctic cracker at

higher value products. 

The chemicals, health and

and FFr 29m to profits. 

Another black spot for the 
group is the plastics field. 
Atochimie closed its accounts at 


PARIS, June 14. 

zero on a turnover of. FFr 3.36bn. 
The group’s sulphur activities— it 
accounts for an eighth of free 
world production, have been 
helped by some increase in 
prices. 

The group's 50 per cent subsi- 
diary Le Nickel also had an un- 
happy year because of depressed 
world prices, the misfortune of 
incurring its costs in francs and 
income in dollars, and accumulat- 
ing stocks. U lost FFr 68m last 
year. 

Last year the group produced 
18.7m tonnes of crude of which 
more than two-thirds came from 
the Gulf of Guinea. Its output 
of commercial gas reached ll.Sbn 
cubic metres, 65 per cent of 
which was won in France. 

Investments in exploration 
represented some 17 per cent of 
the total last year. With the 
development of installations and 
production taking nearly 48 per 
cent nr FFr 4.14bn. Refining and 
distribution was tbe other main 
-claimant on investment taking 
FFr 1.318bn or 15 per cent. 

The exploratory budget is 
sharply up this year with Africa, 
including the Gulf of Guinea, and 
the Camerouns, claiming a sub- 
stantial commitment of funds. 
Development expenses are likely 
to be lower than last year because 
of the completion -of substantial 
projects like Frigg.

Its. owners mugj&ftbo commit

i These two' coupons . were 
among the reco minima tions sub- 
'mined to the of Indus- 

i tey yesterday by ttegovernment 
committee investigating the 
forest owners’ ednmuties. It has 
hurried through 7 to-: report on 
I NCR's finances, the com- 

pany has to closed Sir. books by 
June 30 . 

' (-.as -,r • 

.. Part of the report is being 
kept secret, but statements from 
< the . .management "iSSipate that 
after the heavy losg ||qtained in 


tbe past year, the company’s 
cash holdings are very small, its 
equity has been eaten away and 
interest payments on its debts 
are in the SRr 175-180m a year 
bracket. 

Foreign banks are understood 
to make up the majority of the 
company’s creditors and to have 
exercised considerable influence 
on the committee’s report. The 
committee in fact states that both 
Swedish and foreign banks have 
underlined the need for a change 
in NCR's top management. 

In return for this, the com- 
mittee now seems to expect 
creditors to agree to a mora- 
torium in amortisation and 
interest, payments. It under- 
lines this point by noting that 
the SKr 400m state loan would 
not in itself be enough to save 
the company. 


Arab cirrency unit trust Dutch insurer 

: .by :mary "campb&l - - taps holders 


! . .BY MARY. CAMPBEajU.- _ - 

A UNIT trust to specwSge in 
investment,/ in. • fixejf 
securities" denomiaated/fw Arab’ 
currencies has bfeeh/lfeunebed in 
Jersey.. The fund^alled . First 
European Arab ' Fund, has been 
, launched . by European Arab, 
Bank, which Is London-based 
; consortium, bank owned, mainly 
by. Arab shareholders. - 
|- This is believed to be the 
firaFjEuchc tt&t to specialise ih 
bxvestmehMTin 'these currencies. 
The ertbMhment of open-ended 
trusts is impossible in the domes- 
tic majkets of most of the coun- 
tries concerned because of laws 
recjolfing the majority of capital 
to-be owned by local residents. 

In practice, most of the invest- 
ments will, initialy at least, he 
made in "Kuwaiti dinar issues, 
since issues in other Arab cur- 
rencies have not -been frequent 
This - .' mainly means Kuwaiti 
dinar Eurobond issues and issues 
Of -certificates of deposit deno- 
minated In Kuwaiti dinars. Tbg 
yields currently available ip 


these. .niprkets. range from 6 to 
;§*per c«it per ann um. 

The 'managers said yesterday 
that the Kuwaiti dinar has appre- 
ciated'^ an average of 2 to 3 
per cent per annum against the 
dollar hi -recent years. Yields 
are ciirejmt approaching 2 per 
cent below yields on dollar Euro- 
bonds. 

A key question on how much 
non-Gulf investors are interested 
ih.putting money , into purchas- 
ing the units will be the extent 
t4 which they consider that the. 
Kuwaiti dinar's rate of apprecia- 
tion against the dollar will . 
accelerate. ; 

- Subject to a minimum initial 
subscription of - 50 shares 
(KD 515 or about S1IJ50), shares 
may be purchased in multiples 
Of ten. European Arab Bank 
hopes tb at the launching of the 
fund will encourage the partici- 
pation of smaller Investors in a 
market which hitherto has been 
dominated by Middle East insti- 
tutions.

Conditions on Swedish pulp loan 


STOCKHOLM, June 14. 

The committee specifically 
states that the combination of 
the posts of board chairman and 
chief executive must be 
abolished. Mr. Gunnar Hediund, 
the former leader of the Centre 
Party, who has held both these 
posts, has already indicated his 
intention of resigning. Tbe NCB 
board at its last meeting also 
decided that the share capital 
should be increased from 
Skr 72m to SKr 200m through a 
new share issue and a bonus 
Issue 

NCB’s financial difficulties 
derive from the swift expansion 
it had undertaken just before 
the recession hit .the Swedish 
forest industry and the collapse 
in the demand for pulp from 
western Europe, which was 
aggravated last year by the fall 
in pulp prices to a level below 
Swedish production costs.

AMSTERDAM, June 14. 

A RIGHTS issue on a one for 
ten basis is proposed by Nationale 
Nederlanden, the largest insur- 
ance company in Holland- Recent 
precedent for Dutch rights issues 
suggests that the company could 
be about to raise more than 
?50m. 

This strengthening of its 
capital base is seen as desirable 
by NedcrlandeD which has. been 
expanding rapidly in ‘’recent- 
years. Group shareholders capital ' 
totalled FIs 1.7 don at the ena, of ' 
1977 after a rise in net profits**) f 
15 per cent to. FIs 205.3m. | 
Revenues during the year' 
increased by an . eighth to 
FJs 5.3Sbn. 

The proposed rights: involves 
the issue of 1. 3m new shares at a 
price yet to be set. The recent 
I rights offer from the smaller 
Dutch Insurer Amev was pitched 
on an 18 per cent discount to 
market prices. A similar sort of 
discount for Nederladcn suggests 
that the funding will raise around 
FJs 117m. 

I The- warrants attached to the 
recent bond issue which now 
each give the right to 11.009 
certificates of shares will have 
the right to 10 certificates. For 
the remainder the option exercise 
price will be applied. The new 
-shares will rank for dividend 
1 from 1978, 


Slavenburg's Bank will raise 1 
FI 60m through the issue ol a ( 
10-year debenture. Coupon is 71 1 
per cent. Tbe issue will be 1 
redeemed at par in 10 more or. 
less equal parts. Lists close a 
week today.

SYDNEY, June 14. 
CHRYSLER AUSTRALIA Lsin- 
'creasing its working capital by 
concerting a UjZ$15bi loan 
(about A$l3m) from its U.S. 
parent into equity capital. 

The loan was arranged 
recently and It was stated at 
tbe time that it would be con- 
certed into equity. The VS. 
parent, which also pumped in 
another U.S.$9.1m, Into equity 
last October, indicated that 
farther subordinated loans will 
be made if considered neces- 
sary. The support from the 
parent company follows a 
A$25.7m loss by tbe Australian 
offshoot in 1977. 

The conversion will be 
achieved through a one-for- 
two issue of ordinary and A 
ordinary shares at ASLOO each. 
It will involve the allotment of 
11.24m ordinary shares and 
1199m A ordinary shares. The 
XJ.S- parent owns 97.74 per cent 
of Chrysler Austraiia’s 
ordinary capital. 

Acme sold 
by TNT 

fiy Our Own Correspondent 

SYDNEY, June 14. 

Thomas Nationwide Trans- 
port, the international trans- 
port group, has sold its 
troublesome U.S. freight for- 
warding subsidiary. Acme 
Fast Freight Inc. for U.S4L2m, 
subject to adjustment follow- 
ing the preparation of Acme’s 
balance sheet, to an unnamed 
buyer. 

TNT has been Interested in 
disposing of Acme for some 
time. Tbe U.S. company was 
acquired in 1973 and at the 
time was unprofitable and bad 
run up heavy losses. TNT 
paid no consideration for Acme 
but took over the losses- 

Acme reportedly earned a 
small trading profit in 1974-75 
followed by a profit of 
U.S -$700,000 in 1976. 

However, last year it was 
discovered that profits In prior 
years had been overstated by 
A$2^m (US$2 jm). 

. Acme is one of the largest 
freight forwarders in the U.S. 
It holds operating rights over 
the mainland states as well as 
Alaska and Hawaii. 

Bankruptcies 
in Japan 

• . TOKYO, June 14. 

JAcPAIVESE bankrupt ices in 
May ‘rose to 1,363 from 1,342 
In April, but were down from 
1.652 fn May last year, the 
Tokyo Commerce and. Industry 
Research Company said. 

Tbe company which pro- 
vides the figures used by the 
Bank of Japan for Us bank- 
ruptcy statistics - said 'that 
debts involved in May fell to 
YIMbn ($880m) from Y235bn 
in April and a record Y355bn 
in May last year. 


SONY CORPORATION'S consoli- 
dated net income fell 4i.i per 
cent to Y12.Xbn ($55.5m) in the 
1 six months ending April 30, 
compared with the same period 
a year earlier, the . company 
announced today. 

The decline is put down to the 
impact of “negative forces 
arising from the unstable 
climate of the world economy.” 
Tbe main blame seems to rest 
with the yen revaluation which 
affected the value of Sony's over- 
seas sales while domestic costs 
continued to rise. 

Sony’s overall sales increased 
daring the six months, reaching 
Y255.3bn ($1.12bn), up 3fl per 
cent over the previous year’s 
le.veL Overseas sales, in terms 
of yen. showed a fall of 0.4 per 
cent, which Sony stressed would 
not have occurred but for yen 
revaluation. If the yen had held 
steady against the dollar during 
the 12 months up to the end of 
ApriL the value of sales would 
have been substantially up in 
yen terms, Sony says. 

Sony points out that its results 
.for the second quarter of the 
I six-month . period under review 
are better than those for the 


first half. Profits in the three 
months to April 30 were down 
3L$ per cent from a / ear a ^° 
(to Y6.7bn) whereas the profit 
figure for the October to January 
period bad shown a fall of 49 per 
cent, to Y5.48bn. The company 
warns, however, that the “nega- 
tive factors ” influencing profits 
will continue through 1978 and 
thereafter. 

The most positive part of 
Sony’s half-year report \ deads 
with research and capital invest- 
ment both of which, the com- 
pany says, are being stepped up 
despite the deterioration in the 
short-term business prospects. 
Research spending is currently 
running at around 6 per cent of 
sales revenue while capital 
investment is up 20 per cent on 
a year ago. The company is still 
putting money, into expanding 
its tape plant in Alabama fan 
additional 922m, following $45m 
already invested in the plant). 

A breakdown of sales shows 
that sales of television sets fell 
by 32 per cent during the six 
month period although itihey still 
provide 30 per cent of Sony’s 
turnover. _ Safes -of video tape 
recorders which had’ been rising 


TOKYO, June 14. 

sharply up to the turn of last 
year slowed sharply in early 
I97S. 

Sony attributes this rather 
disappointing result to poor 
American demand and to a tem- 
porary interruption in European 
sales of its professional VTR 
models caused by a change of 
chassis (which led prospective 
purchasers to delay buying old 
models). Both of these situations 
are claimed ot be temporary and 
Sony maintains its faith in VTR 
as tile key to tbe future growth 
of. consumer electronics sales. 

Sony says that the group of 
companies producing the “Beta- 
Format” video tape recorders of 
whicb it was the original 
developer now account for about 
50 per cent of total sales of 
VTRS; the other 50 per cent is 
accounted for by sales of VHS 
recorders pioneered by Japan 
Victor company (but also made 
by Matsushita and Hitachi, 
among others). During 1977 tbe 
Beta-Format market share was 
nearly 60 per cent, so that some 
deterioration in. Sony's previously 
dominant position has apparently 
taken place. 


Receiver put into Cockpit Hotel 


BY H. F. LEE 

COCKPIT HOTEL — one of Singa- 
pore's oldest and established 
hotels — has been put into re- 
ceivership. Moscow Narodny 
Bank, which has issued a num- 
ber of loans to Cockpit Hotel 
Pte., the owner and operator of 
the 280-room hotel, has appointed 
Mr. D. Brown of Turquaad 
Youngs and Company as receiver. 

The largest of the loans issued 
bv the bank amounted to about 
SS50m (U.S.S2i.4m). However, 
the company's outstanding liabi- 
lities including interest as at the 
time of the appointment of the 
receiver are believed to be in 
the region of S$55m. 

. The loans have been secured 
against several of the company's 
properties, including the hotel 
building and adjacent land, and 
properties in other parts of 
Singapore. 

At the end of 1976, the com- 
pany has a paid-up capital of 
SS10-27m and fixed assets, a* 


1973 valuation, of SS59.79m. 

The comp any incurred an 
operating loss of S6623J176 
(U.S.3266,400) in 1976. bringing 
total accumulated losses to 

sauna. 

Ironically, Cockpit Hotel has 
fallen into receivership at a time 
when Singapore’s hotel industry 
is enjoying a boom. The hotel 
is believed to. be currently 
enjoying a high occupancy rate. 

Cockpit hotel is the third 
major Singapore hotel company 
to have fallen into receivership 
in recent years. The other two 
were Far Eastern Hotels 
Development, which owned the 
Singapore Hilton,. and Imperial 
Securities which owned the 
Oberoi Imperial Hotel. 

★ * * 
ROLLEl SINGAPORE has re- 
ported a 5 per cent increase in 
trading profit to S$15.3m 
(U.S.S6.5m) for 1977. Post tax 
profit was approximately S$14m. 


SINGAPORE. June 14. 

Rollei Singapore’s pioneer 
status tax incentives expired in 
February last year, and profits 
from March 1977 onwards were 
subject to tax. 

The profit improvement was 
achieved in spite of a 2.6 per 
cent fall in turnover to S3114m 
(U-S-$49m). Of this total, only 
1.2 per cent went to external 
customers while the remainder 
were accounted by inter-company 
transactions. 

Rollei Singapore is owned 75 
per cent by Norddeutscbe 
Landesbank Girozentrale of 
Germany— the parent company of 
tbe Rolleiwerke, Granke and 
Heidecke camera group — and the 
remainder is held mainly by the 
Development Bank of Singapore. 

The company last year paid a 
dividend of 23.28 per cent on its 
issued capital of S$58m. un- 
changed from the previous year's 
payment.

a 





























































NORWAY’S RECENT announce, 
merit that it is to take a 40 per 
rent stakp in Volvo, the Swedish 
motor manufavturer, was well 
timed— -at least for the Oslo 
Government’* shipbuilding 
policy. The connection between 
what will be ihe Norwegians' 
newest manufacturing industry 
and onp of their oldest is 
Mm ply that as une shrinks, it 
is hoped that the other will 
grow lo soak up some of the 
displaced labour. 

So the timing of the announce- 
ment — neatly sandwiched 
between the Government’s pro- 
posals to run down shipbuild- 
ing and what is bound to be a 
sticky parliamentary debate in 
the Storting on the same sub- 
ject — has given the Industry 
Minister a few rounds of 
defensive ammunition. 

The strategy is to use the 
wealth created by North Sea oil 
and gas to finance the recon- 
struction of the country's indus- 
trial base rather than using oil, 
a.s has been largely the case so 
far. to subsidise key high-cost 
domestic industries in areas 
such as textiles and shipbuilding 
against unmatchablr com- 
petition from the Far East. 

At the moment, only the 
briefest outline or this new 
strategy is visible, but on ship- 
building. the Government does 
now appear at least to have 
made up its mind that the old 
policy has no future. 

The old policy probably cost 
ihc Oslo Government around 
£200m la?t year, although no 
official figure is available to 
confirm this. An official inquiry 
into shipbuilding, however, did 
ascertain that on average a 20 
per cent subsidy was required 
for all order* taken by Nor- 
wegian yards last year. This 
suggests a total subsidy level of 
at Tear-t £120m. 

The real cost is certainly 


Why Norway is trimming 
on shipbuilding subsii 


its sails 


higher than that after taking 
into account loan guarantee.? 
which may result in lasses and, 
more imporiant, after allowing 
for the very considerable costs 
of development aid packages 
whrrh have heen used to market 
smaller Norwegian vessels in 
the third world. 

Government sources put the 
total cusl ««f the development 
aid deals mvniving ships so far 
at Kr 375m i£87mj. There is 
also likely In be some under- 
reckoning as the result of a 
remarkable aid scheme last year 
which soughl to encourage small 
private investors to put their 
cash into new Norwegian ships 
in return for tax credits so 
generous IbaJ some deals were 
financially attractive even if the 
ships purchased had no prospect 
nr profitable employment. 

This scheme cost the Govern- 
ment almost -flOOm in tax 
credits and. by what is now 
common agreement, harmed the 
Norwegian shipowners' reputa- 
tion for professionalism by 
bringing into being a new 
group of "shipowners” whose 
own professional ability lay in 
high-paid but hardly maritime 
occupations such as dentistry 
and the law . Established ship- 
owners also feel that merely to 
increase the number of shipping 
companies is a retrograde step. 
With well over 200 such com- 
panies already in existence, 
there is widespread support for 
the idea nf using the pressures 
of the present recession to 


force some regrouping and 
rational isatioh. 

There is no doubt, though, 
that last year's State munifi- 
cence worked. In 1977, Norway's 
shipyards booked 621,000 com- 
pensated gross tons of orders 
(the agreed measurement show- 
ing a ship's work content) — the 
second best performance m 
Europe behind only West 
Germany, and enough business 
to keep most of the yards busy 
for a year. 

For a number of reasons, it 
was a policy which could not 


In particular, Mr. Eakke 
wants Norway to regain its 
initiative within the Organisa- 
tion for Economic Co-operation 
and Development on a con- 
certed approach to reducing 
world shipbuilding capacity. 

Whether Mr. Bakfce and his 
colleagues will succeed in con- 
vincing their European col- 
leagues that Norway has at 
last swallowed the bitter pill 
of retrenchment depends 
much on the deployment o f 
the proposal now before the 
Storting.

is to top up its development aid 
programme with another £L0m 
and provide £5m for research 
and development in shipbuild- 
ing and for costs incurred in 
companies switching away from 
building ships. 

Norway r s shipowners, who. 
like their colleagues ip other 
European countries. have 
bowled long and hard against 
subsidised production of un- 
wanted ships, beliere that the 
plan is tough enough to have 
an effect. 

For its part, the Government 
says its measures will reduce 
from 20 to between 12 and 
lo per cent the level of average 
subsidy per contract. 

■lust how the required re- 
organisation will take place is 
far from clear and shipbuilders 
are still in too great a state Df 
shock to have many ideas of 
their own. The Government 
does not intend, as was sug- 
gested in the commission's 
report, to take board-level 
representation in those com- 
panies that it puts funds into, 
but it does intend to channel 
aid towards the smaller West 
Coast yard 5. 


This must mean that the first 
yards to suffer will be, ironic- 
ally, the larger and better 
equipped companies in Eastern 
Norwav and the Oslo Fjord. 
It is into sites such as these that 
the Government .is thought 
likely to place its share of Volvo 
manufacturing and In particular 
the marine engine side of the 
Swedish company’s business 
which is to be transferred 
entirely to Norway. - 

Even with Volvo,. the diversi- 
fication will not be easy. The 
obvious candidate for absorbing 
labour and equipment is the off- 
shore supply business. But 
Norway's cautious and some- 
what glower than intended pro- 
gress in exploration has 
restricted scope to its own 
sector of the North Sea at the 
same time as the British autho- 
rities have learned increasingly 
to play the protectionist game 
in the’U-K sector. . 

In any case, Norway's biggest 
shipbuilder, the Aker Group, 
started its diversification into 
offshore work in 1974 and last 
year spent only 31 per cent of 
its efforts on building ships. 

So with a squeeze on offshore 
rontracts- there is intense com- 
petition for the next big Nor- 
wegian order, the Statfjord oil 
production platform. Aker's 
main competitor for this con- 
tract is Norway's biggest indus- 
trial group. Kvaerner, which 
also has slack capacity. 

With almost 9 per cent or its 
Norwegian workers employed in 
shipbuilding these are serious 
problems, justifying the Govern- 
ment's decision to let the air 
nut of the subsidy cushion as 
gently as possible. Sow quickly 
it will deflate is hard to judge. 
It partly depends upon the res- 
ponse Norway receives from the 
international community when 
it urges others to follow a 
similar course.

■ - Net earnings for* the year were £483.000. easily a tocotd for 
the Company and. on a comparable basis, an improvement of- 
£82 000 over the previous year. In addition Brupex edr investment 
crust subsidiary Company ha d net gains, afrer taxation, on reafi- 
sation of investments of £41.000, compared -with £25,000 in the 
prior year, which have been placed to Capital Reserve. 

m goth the interim and proposed- final dividends have been 
Increased to the maximum extent permitted by Government. It 
has been the policy of this Company .throughout its 66 year history 
to distribute, as dividends, a large proportion of its earnings. It has 
of course been restrained by Government action in recent years. 1 
When these restraints are relaxed or removed • it'-fc the intent 
of . your Directors to recommend a resumption of it* traditional 

dividend policy. 1 

m T he distribution of a higher, proportion of eartl«8* will suit . 
all classes of shareholders with the single exception of individuals 
living in rhis country who are liable to the top rate of --tax on their 
investment income. There have been efforts in various. quarto rs to I 
get somp relaxation put into the finance Bill on these top rates bue 
these efforts have unfortunately come to neiight. For each £1 of 
our earnin'** «ve pay Corporation Tax of S2p. When we distribute 
the remaining 48p to the individuals I have described they have- to 
pay over 46jp directly to the i nl an d.Re venue and are left with under 
1 Jp out of what started as £1 of earnings. It is a sad reflection 
upon government that it should apply -such a confiscatory, measure , 
■ and disguise it as taxation so that it does not receive the publicity 
'■it 'deserves. . 

■ The Stock Exchange value of our Quoted Investments at 3lsc { 
March last stands at a record figure of- £9,435.000 which -exceeded | 
the Balance Sheet figure by a record £5.427.000. This is an. improve- 
ment of £180.000 over the position at the end of the. previous 
year. There has been a substantial improvement since' 3isr March 
which has applied to our Oil Investments both in . the U.K. and 

'the U.S.A. as well as to our Industrials. .The further improvement 
in Stock Exchange value exceeds L\ million. - 

■ Our Capital and Reserves, together, with, die unrealised- appre- 
ciation of our investments, were equivalent to 18Sp per oshare 
at 31st March last. It must be appreciated.^ however, .that- profits

We at Savills acquire commercial and 
industrial properties for Pension Funds and 
Insurance Companies, and see a good many 
portfolios in the course of a year. 

A curious gap often strikes us. 

Many substantial investors have 
surprisingly insubstantial direct holdings 
of commercial and industrial property. 

That's curious, because such property 
has often shown the best average 
performance of any investment medium 
over the last ten years. 

Of course, you have to pick the right 
properties. And that can be difficult 
without help. 


Savills apply three principal criteria in 
assessing commercial and industrial 
properties for investment : 

1- The location of the property. 

2. The quality of the building. 

3. The covenant of the tenant. 

We look very carefully into all three 
before seriously considering any property 
for our clients. If it measures up on all three 
counts, there's a very good chance it will 
give good long-term performance. 

With the help of professional evaluation 


SAVILLS 


of this kind, our experience shows that 
Pension Fund and Insurance Company 
Investment Managers do well to put 
between 15% and 30% of their portfolios 
into the direct purchase of Commercial and 
Industrial Properties. 

In return, they get a good return. 

They also get total control of the 
properties they buy, and a total 
management service from Savills if they 
want it. 

It could make very good sense to plug 
that gap without delay.

investment department is Tim Simon.

As a result, he forecast that

DUSSELDORF, June 14. 

Our Commodities Staff writes: 
London traders claimed that 
aluminium sold at free market 
values, rather Than the producer 
price, was much greater than the 
2 per cent claimed by Herr 
Escherich. They thought a more 
likely figure was 10 per cent, 
although the: -amount varied 
according to market conditions. 
Jn times of shortage, for .exam- 
ple. the free .market share- might 
well go up Ip 15 per cent. •

there scents no reason why 
Eastern European suppliers will 
not meet these specifications as 
they do with existing metals.

New grain 
variety 
in China 

' By Oar Own -Correspondent 

- PEKING. June 14. 
CHINESE agricultural scientists 
have developed a new grain 
variety which * is ■ resistant to 
cold, drought, poor soil- and 
crop disease. 

.. The. acw seed— roctoploid triti-, 
cale — is a cross between wheal 
and rye:. Scientists claim after 
several years of breeding arid 
experimental planting that the 
seed yields 20 to 30 -per cent 
more grain than cither parent, 
has high nutritional value and, 
tastes like wheat. 

The New Chino News Agency i 
reports that triticale was suc-| 
eessfully grown on more than , 
26.000 hectares of arid cold 
mountain land in north-west and 
south-west China last year. 

The agricultural scientists 
believe that the development of 
triticale will enable much arable 
land in China’s cold mountain 
regions to be used. • increasing 
national grain production and 
improving living standards in 
rural areas.

UK AGRICULTURE 



h a 





BY CHRISTOPHER PARKES 

THE MINISTER of Agriculture 
has still not decided what to do 
about managing the UK potato 
market ibis year. 

He admitted yesterday that he 
was in difficulties because there 
was no Common Market regime 
to take care of the situation for 
him— an unsavoury position for 
an iinri-inarkeieer m be in. The 
best he could offer was a 
promise nf a decision on tactics 
within the next four or five 
weeks. 

Mr. John Silkin is well and 
truly trapped between the devil 
and the deep blue briny. If he 
announces a guaranteed price for 
potatoes as usual the farming in- 
dustry will no doubt rejoice; But 
there is a strong possibility that 
such a step would cost the tax- 
payer dear if a case now. before 
ine European Court of Justice 
goes against Britain. 

The court is expected to rule 
in September on a Dutch ex- 
porter's charg- that the British 
ban on imports of m a incrop 
potatoes is against EEC law. If 
the shipper wins bis case then 
Britain will almost certainly find 
itself flooded with potatoes from 
all over the EEC next autumn. 

The home-grown crop would he 
pushed out -of _lhe market 3nd 
would have to be paid for under 
the guaranteed price arrange- 
ments. Support for last year's 
crop which is nc-w almost totally 
cleared may yet cos; the Exche- 
quer around £20m — and that for 
only a relatively modest support 
operation. 

F.Ir. Silkin'? humour has not 
been improved by the attitude 
of the farmers who blithely 
ignored all warnings \o reduce 
their potato acreages this year. 

The situutun could be eased 
if the current drought continues 
•and stunts the crop’s growth, but 
the Minister's relatively limited 


experience in the farm job has 
already taught him that Britain's 
weather cannot be relied on as 
an instrument of policy. 

He is also growing restless 
about the lack of activity in 
Brussels among officials supposed 
to be fulfilling the promise made 
at the Spring price review — that 

“ I'm anti-fox,” Mr. John Silkin 
declared yesterday. The Agri- 
culture Minister was comment- 
ing on the elevation into the 
political sphere- of the long- 
running row over blood sports. 

His dislike springs from per- 
sonal experience. Foxes have 
laid waste i u the Ministerial 
chicken run at least twice, but 
be is also unhappy about hunt- 
ing. “I don’t think chasing 
after them wiili dogs is particu- 
larly spurting. In fact. It’s 
. rather silly." 

If rabies ever arrived in 
Britain, the thriving fox popu- 
lation would be the main factor 
in spreading the disease 
. through the country; ' he 
warned. As for hare coursing, 
Mr. Silkin called it “ revolt- 
ing." 


a careful assessment was to be 
made of the argument for a cut 
in MCA import subsidies nn 
Danish and Dutch bacon sold into 
Britain. 

The changes called for by 
Britain Mr. Silkin claimed, would 
be just enough to bring the pig 
meat industry in Britain back into 
profit. '' Bui an 1 can do at the 
moment is nag,” he admitted. 

Meanwhile, the average price 
of pigs sold in Britain is begin- 
ning to fall again and farmers are 
not expanding their herds. At the 
same time, feed prices have 
begun to climb as munufatcurers’ 
cereal costs go up. 


There are also delays with two 
more of the Minister's pel pro- 
jects. The Norlhileld Committee, 
which is 10 report on the owner- 
ship and management or term- 
land in 'Britain, is still digging i;s 
way through the 'masses uf 
written an d - ‘ vox pop " evidence 
it collected on its lightning louts 
of Britain and Europe. 

Lord Nort Wield has . .been 
asked to . get a move on. but 
release of tbe findings is not ex- 
pected until the end of tbe year. 

There may be sftiue consola- 
tion for those anxiously await- 
ing Lord NorthfieJd's report. Mr. 
Silkin at least expects his- study 
to be “ probably the most eoin- 
prehenseive since the Doomsday 
Book." 

What the Minister calls "Son 
of Food from our Own 
Resources" — the sequel to ihe 
ill-fated 1975 Farm policy White 
Paper — j.« also . jammed in the 
works.. Evidence from Rfi-ndd 
sources is still being, sifted, 
.although results are expected 
shortly and iho publication d.ve 
has Keen tentatively set ' for 
some lime during September. 

The National Farmers' Union 
did nor helD progress when it 
a«ked to withdraw ii.s first boteh 
oF evidence for amendment'. Toe 
Ministry recened Mark il last 
month. 

Mr. Silkin stressed that while 
he hoped the report would be 
republished as a formal White 
Paper, be ini end'll that u should 
be reveiwed and possibly up- 
dated every year <ir .<0. 

The main trouble with the first 
paper was that it was incorrect, 
he admitted. It also jpr.eaivd in

of stone’ — »"h3i-h left no rnmn 
for manoeuvre when the weather 
and the collapse of sterling made 
nonsense of its forecasts and

Spanish wine price raised sharply 


BY A CORRESPONDENT 

SPANISH WINE producers have 
been granted an increase of 42.8 
per cent in Ihe basic price for 
their product, but are far from 
satisfied. 

Steep as the rise may be. the 
producers say it goes only some 
way towards catching up with in- 
flation in recent years and they 
claim the basic price is still be- 
low the cost of production. 

The new figure of PtsllD a 
"bectogrado" was agreed after 
negotiations between producers 
and government, and re presen is 
a slight success for tbe growers 
because tbe administration had 


been out to settle for no more 
than PtslOO. 

The negotiators’ difficulty was 
to reach a figure that would cover 
costs while not further aggravat- 
ing the industry’s loss of com- 
petitiveness in export markets. 

Already, because oF export 
shortages in tbe past two seasons, 
and thy lower prices being ac- 
cepted by competitors, Spain bas 
suffered ’a loss of sales which, 
according to the president of tbe 
Wine Exporters Group, may be 
impossible to recover. 

Tn the first two months of this 
year. Spain was able to sell 


abroad only 12.5m litres of wine, 
or less than half the quantify for 
the same, period last year. 

It was in the hope of averting 
a shortage, and helping to con- 
tain prices, that tbe Government 
decided two months ago to per- 
mit imports of red wine from 
the .Argentine — a decision greeted 
with violent protests. 

Wine that entered Spain from 
Argentina before the Government 
withdrew or suspended the im- 
port licences has now been 
blended with Spanish produce, 
and re-exported to several 
African countries and Sweden.

Kenya seeks 

ft/ 

coffee aid 

THE KENYAN Government is 
asking the World Sank for a 
£3Um loan for a coffee rehab- 
ilitation programme. 

A team of World Bank experts 
is now touring Kenya's coffee- 
growing areas io make a detailed 
appraisal of the industry’s 
needs. 

If the loan is approved the 
bulk of the funds would be 
channeled to sinail-sealc* coffee 
fanners as seasonal credits to 
improve productivity. But the 
programme is planned as a com- 
prehensive one for the whole 
coffee industry. 

The aim is to raise coffee 
yield from the 741 kg per hec- 
tare, recorded in ( fie 1976-77 
season, io 900 kg per hectare. 

Tbe World Bank team, led hy 
Ur Jan Wijnand. is inspecting 
coffee processing facilities, sup- 
plies and studying general farm 
maoageuient requirements.

British Funds and leading 
Industrials passed a rather 
subdued trading session yesterday 
with underlying sentiment being 
m A Heeled by uncertainty ahead at 
the May trade figures. In the 
event, these proved mildly dis- 
appointing and the dull tone 
continued into the late dealings. 

The Funds opened slightly 
higher, but doubts about the 
market's ability to cope with this 
week’s two large tap issues still 
prevailed and the short-dated 
..Jocks came in for a fair amount 
r . f proiir-tjikjng which brought 
final Josses of a half-point. 
Treasury 14 per cent. 1982. fell 
that amount io 107J. The longer 
maturities again tended to follow 
in the wake of the shorLs and 
early gains of ! were replaced by 
Josses of similar size at the close. 
Application lists for the flbn of 
12 per cent Exchequer stock, 
2013-17, open and close today. 

Lack oT support and occasional 
small offerings prompted a 
modest reaction in the Industrials 
leaders and continuation or the 
rrend in the late dealings was 
refiectcd in the FT 30-sharc index; 
this extended a loss of 1.7 at 3 pm 
to one of 2.7 at the dose of 471.9. 
Activity throughout the session 
was at an extremely law ebb. 

Elsewhere in the equity sector. 
h rather drab day was enlivened 
by movements in response to com- 
pany's announcing trading news 
;«lon" with bid situation*, both 
rumoured and actual. In the 
latrer category. J. and W. Hender- 
son were outstanding at 210p. up

at £52. 

After a spirited start to around 

115} per cent, the investment 
currency premium reacted quite 
sharply to close near the lowest 
of the day at 113 per cent, a loss 
of 1 } points on balance. The 
cessation of recent demand con- 
nected with a placing operation 
involving Swire Properties, the 
Hong Kong-based concern, con- 
tributed largely to the easier

contracts done improved to 557, 
the highest figure since June 1. 
Interest continued to centre 
around ICI and here 1% deals 
were recorded followed by 125 in 
Land Securities. 

Renewed demand lifted Euro- 
therm 6 to 16$p, after 169p, in 
Recent Equities. 


Guinness Peat down 


The major clearing banks 
drifted lower on light profit- 
taking. Further consideration of 
the proposed share purchase of 
Investment Trust Corporation 
cum cash resale to the Post Office 
Pension Fund left Barclays 5 off 
3t 330p. Lloyds relinquished a 
similar amount at 275p as did Mid- 
land at 360p, while NatWest 
closed 3 cheaper at 270p. Else- 
where, the chairman's reported 
bid denial prompted dullness in 
Guinness Peat, which lost 10 to 
245p. .Among Discounts, Union 
finned 10 to 33Sp ahead of next 
Monday's interim figures, Gerrard 
and National edged forward 4 to 
182p and Seccombc Marshall and 
Campion gained 3 to 230p. the 
last-named in a thin market. Com- 
posite Insurances rarely strayed 
from their overnight levels, while 
Willis Faber put on 5 to 262 p in 
Brokers. 

Breweries closed little changed 
following a quiet session. Guinness 
edged forward a penny more to 
177p ahead of tomorrow’s interim 
report, but both Allied and Bass 
Cbarrington closed tbat amount 
cheaper at 86p and 15Sp re- 
spectively. 

Suspended at 160p during the 
morning, dealings in J. W. Hen- 
derson were resumed following 
news of the agreed bid from 
Cement Headstone worth 210p per 
share and the close was 55 up 
at that level. Increased specula- 


tive Interest lifted Brown and 
Jackson S to llfip, while Breedon 
and Goud Hill lime firmed 6 to 
lOOp in a thin market. J. Smart 
firmed 5 to 43p after recent weak- 
ness on the sharply reduced first- 
half returns, but McNeill fell 7 
to 46p reflecting the annual loss 
and dividend omission. In a thin 
market. Nottingham Brick moved 
5 higher to 2SGp after the in- 
creased interim profits and Inter- 
national Timber improved 3 to 
122 p awaiting today’s results. 
Leyland Paint finished a penny 
higher at TSJp, after 75p. mirror- 
ing newspaper mention. 

IQ moved between extremes of 
395p and 391p before settling at 
the latter price, a couple of pence 
lower on balance. Fisons, 
however, managed a smalt 
improvement at 360p, but Albright 
and Wilson eased 3 to 189 p await- 
ing next week's decision by the 
Office of Fair Trading on whether 
or not to refer the increased bid 
from Tenneco to the Monopolies 
Commission. Alginate, weak of 
late on the results and 
Chairman’s bearish statement, 
found support and rallied 3 to 
26Sp. 

Secondary issues provided the 
main focal points in Stores. 
Allied Retailers were outstanding, 
rising 15 to a 1978 peak of 27Sp 
in response to the good results 
and proposed capitalisation • of 
both ordinary and preference 
shares. Buyers came for Owen 
Owen. 7 higher at S2p. while 
Executes revived with an 
improvement of 4 at 35p and 
James Beattie A put on 5 to I14p. 
Further speculative support left 
MF1 2 up at 88p. The leaders, 
however, closed with small losses 
after a thin trade. Marks and 
Spencer cheapened 2 to 14 Ip and 
UDS declined 3 to S6p. Among 
Shoes and still benefiting from 
Press mention, Headlam Sims and 
Coggins improved 2 more to 42 p. 

Apart from Muirhead, 7 better 
at 173p on small buying in a thin 
market, movement in Electricals 
were moderate. Racal Electronics, 
results due today week, hardened 
3 to 251p for a two-day gain of 7. 
while Louis Ncwmurk, ISOp, and 
Ever Ready, 156p, both finished 2 
dearer. By way of contrast, EMI 
finished 2 cheaper at 143p. 

Stareley Industries stood out in 
Engineerings with a jump of 25 to 
a J97S peak of 272p following 
better-than-expeeted preliminary 
results. Wheway » Watson edged 
forward a penny to I7p helped by 
the higher profits and capital pro- 
posals. while Williams and James. 
79p. and Baker Perkins, 102p, rose 
3 apiece. News of the group's 
agreed acquisition of Wilsons 


Foundry did little for Serck, 
which softened a penny to 87p. 
while Pegler Hattergley declined 
4 more to 162p following comment 
on (he results. John, Brown- 
annual figures due on June 2S, 
cheapened 4 to 362p among the 
leaders where GKN remained 
friendless at 251p, down 2. 

Shipbuilding concerns made 
progress on revived nationalisa- 


tion compensation hopes. Vospcr 
firmed 7 to I77p and Swan Hunter 
rose 6 to I34p.

disappointing results, while Hie La

Heron reacted afresh to* 12Sp 
in Motors and Distributors, before

Further demand raised ? Asso- 
ciated Book Publishers 8 tip 248p,

appointment with the results, but

Leading Properties me 1 ! with 
little business and held their over- 
night levels, but the occasional 
feature appeared among secondary 
issues. Chnrcfibnry Estates? ffirtned 
7 more to 275p, after 280p. m 
continued response to the 35.6 per 
cent stake acquired by British 
Land, while Great Portland! ^Estates 
added 4 at 304p on tbejbigher 
profits and 50 per cent scrip issue. 
Apex. 210p, and Imry, I 315p, 
improved 5 apiece in thin markets 
and similarly Chesterfield filmed 4 
to 3QSp. Elsewhere, Rusdh and 
Tompkins put on 2 to 121pf as bid 
rumours revived. f 


Foods had little to commend 
them. Tate and Lyle remained 
at 17Bp awaiting today's interim 
figures, while Northern Foods. 


96p, and J. Salnsbury, 190p. put on 
2 and 3 respectively. Robertson 
Foods eased to 149p reflecting 
disappointment with the pre- 
liminary figures but rallied to 
close only a net penny cheaper at 
151 p. Other dull spots took in 
Fitch Lovell, 2 off at 63p, and 
Associated Dairies’. 4 cheaper at 
228 p. In Supermarkets, Kwik 
Save Discount improved 5 to S9p- 

Hotels and Caterers had an 
easier bias. Grand Metropolitan 
losing 21 to 107p and Trust Houses 
Forte 5 to 215p. Queen’s Moat 
Houses, however, attracted fresh 
speculative support and closed 
slightly harder at a 1978 peak of 
39p. 

The mildly disappointing UK 
trade returns for May failed to 
make much impact on the miscel- 
laneous Industrial leaders, which 
closed narrowly mixed. Beecbum 
closed 3 to the good at 650p, after 
653p. while Bowater hardened 2 
to 199p. Glaxo drifted back from 
an earlier enhanced level of 
584 p to close unaltered at 53l>p 
but PMdngton lost 4 at 483p; the 
latter's annual figures are due to- 
morrow. Elsewhere, a resurgence 
of speculative bid hopes helped 
Letraset touch 144 p before a close 
of 6 higher on balance at 142 p. 
while Bath and Portland rose 5 
more to 82pi after 83p, on fresh 
speculative interest ahead of the 
forthcoming half-yearly figures. 
A report that its UK mining 
machinery subsidiary, Gultick 
Dobson has had to employ more 
workers to cope with increased 
demand helped Dobson Park 
move up 3 to 97p, while Flexello 
Castors and Wheels hardened 2 
to 56p following the higher half- 
year earnings. Avon Rubber 
hardened 3 lo 192p on speculative 
support and similar gains were 
seen in British Vita, 93p. Metal 
Closures, 98p, and WUkins 
Mitchell. 50p. Holt Lloyd Inter- 
national put on 4 to 141p, while 


hardened 2 to alp ahead of todays 
preliminary figures, while 
included in gains of 3 or so were 
Alliance Trust, 227p, Capital and 
National B, I20p, and Glasgow 
Stockholders, lOlp. 

Shippings were dominated by 
the performance of tote which 
fell 64 to 27 Jp on the dividend 
omission which accompanied news 
of the substantial trading deficit. 

Warren Plantations were traded 
actively after news of the sharply 
increased dividend and almost 
doubled earnings, but settled only 
3 higher at 242p.

Anglo Utd. jump 

A feature of mining markets 
was the strength of the Northgate 
group of companies which all 
moved ahead following persistent 
and heavy Canadian buying. 

Anglo United Development led 
the way up with a further jump of 
57 to a year’s high of 260p bring- 
ing the rise over the past threei 
trading days to 96p. while North- 1 
gate themselves improved la 
more to a 19718 high of 465p and 
Westfield advanced 13 to 110p- 

Tbe buying was inspired by 
vague rumours of a cash injec- 
tion by Northgate into Anglo 
United and consideration of the 
latter’s recently announced pos- 
sible urani um find in County 
Donegal in the Republic of 
Ireland.

gained ground. Sabina attracted 
a good London demand which Left

bid for BH South from North

in the former which closed 17

a high of I25p: the latter were 
finally S cheaper at 132p. 

Consolidated Gold Fields 
Australia were also mentioned as 
a possible bidder for both North 
Broken Hill and BH South and 
dosed 15 higher at 300p — a rise 
of 40 over the past three trading 
days. 

South African . Golds were 
quietly easier despite the firm- 
ness of the bullion price, which 
was finally' another SL25 higher 
at S1SS.S75 per ounce. 

Vlakfontein were notably weak 
and closed 10 lower following the 
passing of the interim dividend.

Education 
awards by 
companies 
to become 
taxable 


BY ERIC SHORT 


SCHOLARSHIPS awarded by 
companies to directors or 
higher-paid employees to assist 
in the cost of educating their 
children are to be taxed as 
benefits in kind. 

The move, announced by the 
Inland Revenue yesterday, is a 
further stage in the ciarapdown 
on fringe benefits for ibe 
higher paid. It is likely to 
arouse considerable opposition 
from the companies and 
employees involved. 

Many scholarship schemes 
have been established for a 
long time, including those of 
Imperial Chemical Industries 
and Barclays Bank. And a 
plethora of further educational 
trusts have been set rp very 
quietly since the Finance Act, 
1976. which contains provisions 
for the taxation of benefits in- 
kind for directors and higher- 
paid employees, primarily to 
take advantage of an aoparent 
concession on educational 
trusts. 

Under Section J75 of the 
Income and Corporate Taxes 
Act, 1970, income from scholar- 
ships was exempted from tax. 
And until now the Revenue 
has not sought to tax educa- 
tional scholarships awarded 
by companies to members of 
an employee’s family on Ihc 
grounds lhat -Section 375 pre- 
cluded such action. 

Now the Revenue has taken 
the opposite view in that Sec- 
tion 375 does not override 
Section 61. It is therefore 
applying the benefit in kind 
provisions to all scholarship 
awards made as from yester- 
day. Bat It will not be applied 
retrospectively. 


Lower-paid 


In practice, this meant that 
directors and higher-paid 
employees — t hose earning 
£7,506 or more — will have the 
cost of the scholarship awards 
to their children or other mem- 
bers of the family added to 
their emoluments and taxed. 
Lower-paid employees will not 
suffer since the rules for them 
are different. The scholarships 
would be taxed on its ?aieahle 
value and this is non-exlstent- 

Tbe only exception being 
allowed is where there is a 
fortuitous connection in the 
award of a scholarship and em- 
ployment. This coold occur 
with a scholarship scheme 
awarded by a company but 
available to the general public 
and it happens that a success- 
ful applicant is the child of a 
director or higher-paid em- 
ployee or ihat particular com- 
pany. Making the scheme 
available to ail employers of 
the company is ■«* «m**wiw 
lu avoid tax. . 

Tax accountants were quick 
to react to the Revenue action. 
Mr. Roger Brown, a partner in 
li cardens - chartered account- 
ants, said that “very large sums 
of money are involved.'’ He 
predicted that the matter 
would end np before the courts.

COMECON, the east European 
economic alliance, is considering 
a crucial change in its voting 
system. This could force the 
economic policies of smaller 
Communist states into line with 
the Soviet Union and provoke 
serious strains within the bloc. 

The nine' Comecon members — 
the Warsaw Pact states plus 
Mongolia and Cuba — are 
expected to discuss the new. 
voting proposals at a summit In 
Bucharest at the end of this 
month. The proposed change, 
according to east European 
diplomats, would mean a shift 
from the unanimous voting pro- 
cedure to a system making 
majority decisions binding on all 
member countries. 

Dissenting Comecon states so 
far have been able to express 
their disapproval with the 
alliance's decisions by simply 
not taking part in the final vote. 
Although the vote would be 
presented to the outside world 
us unanimous, the dissenting 
slate effectively could ignore the 
decision unless other pressures 
were brought to bear. 

If the new voting system goes 
into effect, Russia, which seeks 
complete integration within the 
alliance, could make majority 
decisions on such big issues as 
economic integration and indus- 
trial specialisation binding on 
dissenting states. 

As a result, Russia, which at 
present often has to achieve its 
aims in the alliance through in- 
formal means or at the planning 
committee stage, would be able 
to act with the full weight of 
Comecon behind it. States which 
declined to participate in certain 
decisions, in theory could have 
sanctions applied against them. 

These powers particular!*

could end up as Westland Air-

and do not take his hints of a 
bilateral deal very seriously. 

Christopher Parkes writes: In 
London Mr. Silkin spoke openly 
of his plans to discuss the possi- 
bility of a bilateral fishing deal 
between the UK and Norway. 

Reaffirming the Government's 
determination to win more con- 
cessions for the UK fishing fleet, 
he accused the other EEC gov- 
ernments of being “inflexible” 
and warned he was confident of 
winning any drawn-out war of 
nerves. 

Britain could tolerate the ab- 
sence of a common policy longer 
than other Community countries, 
he claimed. 

The strongest opposition to 
the Minister’s drive to win 
special fishing rights for the UK 
fleet within a band 12 to 50 miles 
from the British coast comes 
from West Germany. 

British waters comprise some 
60 per cent of the whole EEC 
fishing zone, and the most worth- 
while stocks of fish are found 
within 50 miles of the UK coast 

These are the fish which will 
most probably be traded off 
against fishing rights for EEC 
trawlers in non-community 

waters. But no such bargains 
can be struck until the Nine's 
internal wrangles have been 
resolved. 

ln attempting to win the best 
deal possihie for the British deep 
water and coastal fleets. Mr. 
Silkin is therefore frustrating 
German efforts to win back 
recess to rich grounds off 
Iceland. 

A bilateral deal between West 
Germany and Iceland is not 
possible mainly because the 
Federal Republic’s waters hold no 
attraction for the Reykjavik 
Government. 

The Danes and the Dutch, who 
have more to lose than the 
Germans in the longer term, have 
so far ridden along with the 
Boon offensive. Mr. Si! kin’s 
renewed resolve, however, may 
now persuade them to adopt a 
more “ flexible ” approach.

TUC plans autumn campaign 
for shorter working week 


BY CHRI5TIAN TYLER, LABOUR EDITOR 


THE GROUNDWORK for a 
general trade union onslaught 
this autumn against the 40-hour 
working week is being prepared 
by the TUC, it emerged yester- 
day. 

Some unions, notably the 
Transport Workers, have already 
determined to make 1978 the 
year in which to fight for a 
shorter week and other work- 
sharing devices to help the 
unemployed. 

The campaign will now be 
greatly strengthened by a policy 
paper being, prepared for next 
month’s meeting of the TUC 
economic committee. The policy 
would eventually be incorpor- 
ated in the general council’s 
report to September's Trade 
Union Congress in Brighton.

was only J per cent up during 
the past three mouths and was 
less than 2 per cent higher than 
the average for 1977 as" a whole. 

The underlying growth in 
imports looks like being more 
rapid this year. The volume of 
finished manufactured imports 
has risen by li per cent in the 
Iasi three months to a level more 
than 9i per cent higher than the 
average for last year, reflecting 
the marked recovery of consumer 
spending. 

Moreover, purchases of indus- 
trial materials have remained 
a high level after the 12i per 
cent jump in tfae first quarter 
This increase may not have 
reflected on exceptional bulld-i 
of stocks of raw materials 
officials had boped at the time. 

Consequently only the rising 
oil production has ensured 
total export volume increase 
31 per cent in the last three 
months and an import volume 
drop 1 per cent over the period. 
Both figures exclude erratic 
items. 

The official view is that there 
is so far no reason to revise 
forecasts of a £750m surplus for 
the year as a whole after an 
film current account deficit in 
the first five months. 

The latest figures include 
revised estimates for invisible 
earnings; the monthly surplus Is 
now running at £120m, rather 
than £100m as previously stated. 
This compares with a monthly 
average of about £90m in the 
first quarter. 

The difference between the 
estimates is that earlier figures 
were adversely affected by excep- 
tionally heavy payments to the 
EEC in the first quarter.
