Under the accord, parts of the 
Veba Group, Germany's biggest 
enterprise in turnover terms, 
will be sold to Deutsche BP for 
about DM SOOm (£210m). 

They include most of Gelscn- 
berg, which Veba took over three 
years ago, including refinery and 
gas interests. 

Further, BP will be gaining 
valuable access to the German 
fuel trade and to petrol station 
operations through takeover of 
subsidiaries of Stinnes, the trad- 
ing and transport arm of the 
Veba Group, 

This should enable BP greatly 
to strengthen the base of its 
West German operation. 

The entire deal is subjeet to 
approval by West German and 
European Community competi- 
tion authorities. If clearance is 
given, it will take effect from 
the start of next year. 

In a first reaction, and with- 
out prejudice to the competition 
considerations, the Bonn Finance 
Ministry gave an enthusiastic 
welcome to the agreement. 

The West German Government 
holds 44 per cent nf Veba stock 
and as such, is much the biggest 
single shareholder. 

The welcome is particularly 
directed at that part of the 
accord under which BP agrees 
to supply 3m tonnes of crude 
oil annually to Veba at a com- 
petitive price up to the year 

The Germans have to import 
lhe greater part of their energy 
needs and have long been seek- 
ing tn intensify co-operation 
with Britain on oil. 


They already have a 44 per 
cent stake in the North Sea 
Thistle oil field via the explora- 
tion company Dummex in which 
Veba has a 44 per cent interest. 

The accord with BP represents 
a further valuable step on the 
road to long-term oil supply 

As well as the access to more 
crude. Veba is gaining through 
the deal by a reduction in its 
surplus refining capacity. 

At present, Veba Group 
refineries are working at little 
more than 60 per cent capacity.

benefits for Veba profitability.

BP CHEMICALS is poised to 
make its biggest acquisition in 
Western Europe with the S400m 
f £220tu I purchase of the main 
pan of Onion carbide’s Euro- 
pean chemicals operations. 

It has agreed in principle to 
acquire Union Carbide’s main 
European subsidiaries BXL 
(Bakelne Xylonite i in the UK 
and Union Carbide Belgium 
based in Antwerp. Also included 
in the deal is the chemicals divi- 
sion of Union Carbide UK and 
laboratory facilities in Geneva, 

The two companies expect to 
complete the deal by the end 
of the year, but it is still sub- 
ject to both parties obtaining 
Government consents and final 
approval from the main boards 
of BP and Union Cjrbide. 

BP Chemicals’ name has been 
linked with several leading 
chemical companies in Europe 
and the U S. in recent months. 

It has suffered badly from the 
crisis in the petrochemicals in- 
dustry in Western Europe over 
the last year and action to im- 
prove its failing profitability be- 
came inevitable. 

With t'nc purchase of the 
\inion Carbide subsidiaries. BP 
Chemicals is acquiring busi- 
nesses with annual sales of more 
than 6300m (£lfi3mi. Last year 
it made profits of £18 9m from 
3 worldwide turnover of £66Im. 
Prc-t3x profits in 1976 were 

the latest sale it will have more 
than halved its U.K. interests. 
Another part of its BXL business 
was sold in BP last year. 

in a £lfim deal. Union Carbide 
sold its BXL thermosetting 
plastics division to BP Chemicals j 
last September. ! 

The latest set of deals will 
give BP Chemicals its first 
presence in ihe low' density poly- 
ethylene sector, with plants both 
at Grangemouth, Scotland 
1 100.000 tonnes a year) and at 
Antwerp <150,000 tonnes a year). 

This sector of the plastics in- 
dustry has been one of those 
hardest hit by falling prices end 
over capacity, but BP is confident 
of future growth based on the 
specialised' product range 
developed by Union Carbide.

THE SLOWING in the under- 
lying mte of retail price Infla- 
tion appears to have ended for 
the time being. But the favour- 
able influences of the last year 
are still resulting in a decline in 
the 12-month rate of increase. 

The retail price index in- 
creased by 7.7 per cent to 195.7 
(January, 1974=100) in the year 
to mid-May, according to figures 
published yesterday by the 
Department of ‘Employment This 
is the lowest 12-monlh rate since 
January’, 1973. 

Mr. Roy Hattersley. the Prices 
Secretary, said yesterday that 
the figures confirmed his state- 
ment last Sunday that the 12- 
month rate of inflation would 
remain at or about last month’s 
level of 7.9 per cent for the rest 
of the year. “In some months 
there will be minor falls: in 
other months there will be minor 

There is not yet enough evi- 
dence to confirm or to refute this 
view. It is likely that the index 
for mid-June will show a slight 

decline in the 12-month rate. But 
there may be a rise in the rate 
for the year to mid-July since 
comparison will be with a 
monthly increase of 0.1 per cent 
in the same period of 1977. 

There is unlikely to be a sig- 
nificant rise in the 12-month rate 
in the figures to be published 
before an October election. 
Whether the rate by the end of 
the year remains in single figures 
or is just above 10 per cent, as 
some outside forecasters have 
suggested, will depend partly on 
seasonal food prices later this 

The 12-month rate in the UK 
is now almost in line with the 
average increase in prices in 
other industrialised countries. 

In the UK, there are no clear 
signs of an acceleration in the 
underlying trend as measured 
by the rise in the index. for ail 
items except seasonal foods over 
the last six months and expressed 
at an annuai rate. 

This stands at S.6 per cent.

compared with 8.4 per cent for 
the period. to mid-April. While 
ibis is higher thau the rise of 
6.8 per cent for the period to 
mid-March, the trend is affected 
by the annual bunching of cer- 
tain increases, notably for local 
authority rents and rates, in 

The rise in the all-items index 
of 0.6 per cent in the month lo 
mid-May is exactly the same as 
in the first three months of 3978. 

The firmest conclusion is that 
the period of improvement in the 
rate has probably come to an end 
as the favourable effects of last 
year’s rise in the pound wear off. 
The sharp fall in sterling in the 
spring will take some months to 
work through fully; the accelera- 
tion in labour costs is now likely 
to be the main influence on price 

No major price increases are 
expected this month, though Lon- 
don Transport bus and tube fares 
will, go up on Monday and the 
July index will be pushed up by 
about 0.3 per cent by the increase 
in the building societies’ mort- 
gage rate.

this year by United Medical, in 
which lie Enterprise Board 
holds 70 per cent and three

Since mid-April share prices on

recovery. Whether this upturn in 
the market represents a brief rally 
only, or whether it heralds the

talks with Shah 

By Andrew Whitley 


TALKS IN Tehran this week-end 
between Sir David Steel, chair- 
man of British Petroleum, the 
Shah and senior Iranian officials 
could have a vital bearing on the 
protracted negotiations between 
the National Iranian Oil Com- 
pany and a 14-inember Western 
confortium, led by BP. for a 
new long term agreement. 

Sir David is accompanied by 
Mr. John Sutcliffe, BPs managing 
director, who has led the consor- 
tium side in the Tehran 
negotiations. They arrive in the 
Iranian capital tonight. Apart

Toho appears to have had talks 
with development authorities in

STOCKHOLM, June ifc 

SWEDEN WILL have only, two 
major shipyards operating at 
reduced capacity by the end of 
19S1 under the latest Goi em- 
inent plan. Of Ihe 20.850 still 
working in the yards last 
December, dose to 9,000 will 
lose their jobs. Hardest hit will 
be Gothenburg, Sweden's 
second city. .' 

The plan, which will he sub- 
mitted to Parliament in the 
autumn, . is “the largest 
planned re-organisation e»er 
undertaken in any branch <4 
Swedish industry,” according 
to Mr. Nils Aasling. the 
Minister of Industry. Spokes- 
men for the Social Democrat 
opposition and the Gothenburg 
shipyard workers described it 
as a death blow for Swedish 
shipbuilding, which was once 
second only to the Japanese In 
annual tonnage built. 

The privately owned 
Kockums yard in Malmoc and 
the state-owned Uddevalla 
yard will continue to build 
ships but Kockums will reduce 
staff by 1,100 to 4,100 and 
Udde’iatla by 1,800 to 2.300. 
Tbe Arendal yard in Gothen- 
burg and the Oeresund yard 
in Landshrona will he con-

concerns and will cut the num- 
ber employed by 4.1(H). The 
Eriksberg yard in Gothcnhurg, 
which still employed 2.700 in 
December, is being shut down 
under an earlier decision. 

Mr. Aasling said Svruska

operating all the big variU. ex- 
cept for Kockums. would need 
state financing of Kr 6-7bn 
(£700m-i:820m) over the next

Reform Secret# Act, 
urges Heffer 


ACCUSATIONS of "financial 
rape" over the compensation 
terras for Vickers’ nationalised 
assets were levelled at the 
Government by Lord Robens, 
chairman of the engineering 
group, yesterday. 

In a bitter attack on the pay- 
ments so far made for Vickers* 
former aircraft and shipbuilding 
interests, Lord Robens, a former 
Labour Cabinet Minister, com- 
plained about tbe “shabby, 
petty, paltry and indifferent ” 
treatment the company had 
received. He told the annual 
meeting in London yesterday that 
the payments on account were 
derisory, ludicrous and con- 

So far, Vidcers bas received a 
; total of £7m from the Govern- 
ment for its 50 per cent stake in 
British Aircraft Corporation and 
its formerly wholly-owned ship- 
building subsidiary. 

They were nationalised on 
April 29 and July 1 last year 
respectively and carry a book 
value of f 67.6m in the accounts. 

Ironically, tbe first talks on 
further compensation for the air- 
craft side also took place yester- 
day between Government 
officials and shareholders’ repre- 

Discussions about Vickers' 
shipbuilding interests will be 
held at the end of this month. 

Lord Robens told shareholders 
at yesterday’s meeting that the 
total amount paid to Vickers tor 
its share of BAC was £3 ,1m. “just 
a tiny percentage of the profits 
made hy the assets taken over.'* 
In 1977. BAC. jointly owned by 
Vickers and GEC, had made pre- 
tax profits of £53.6m. while 
Vickers* shipbuilding profits in 
the six months before vesting 
day. amounted to £3.Sm. 

“Against these figures, the pay- 
ments were not only derisory, 
but they were insulting.” 

Vickers had been forced to cut 
its investment programme from 
£30m to £20ro “because we were 
in danger of getting into an over- 
borrowed position with the

LORD ROBENS addresses Vickers’ annual meeting in London 


MR. ERIC HEFFER, former 
Industry Minister and an in- 
fluential Labour Left-winger, 
last night urged the Government 
to make reform of the “Catch 
all ” Section Two of the Official 
Secrets Act merely the first step 
towards introduction of a full- 
scale “Freedom of Information 

Mr. Heffer said that this 
pledge should be contained in 
the manifesto for the forthcom- 
ing election--" although every 
sign is that the Cabinet will 
resist any such motion.” 

Labour's last manifesto in 
October. 1974. committed the 
Party to legislate to replace tbe 
much-criticised Section Two. 

The group had expected sub- 
stantial compensation payments, 
on the strength of which it hud 
borrowed extensively to ensure 
the maintenance and replace- 
ment of existing plant and 
acquire new businesses. • 

It bad also invested substanti- 
ally in new technology, especially 
in under-scu engineering, where 
its know-how would serve the 
Government well in future 
underwater explorations for oil 

“During the last four years in 
all these activities, we have 
invested i'74)n.” 

Neither nationalisation in 
itself, nor the date of the final 
settlement, which *as hound to 
take time, were the problems. 

Far wider issues were at slake. 
The group would fight to ensure 
fair and reasonable compensa- 
tion to the very limit of the law. 
"We shall do so because wo are 
not just fighting a battie for 
Vickers shareholders,” Lord 
Robens said. 

“Fair and reasonable” as 
interpreted by a Labour Govern- 

ment. h.j maintained, was a 
warning tr. i-»erv shareholder of 
modest iiiejn.t. 

“They should understand th3t 
the bjstvH .-,f nationalisation 
which is promised us if another 
Labour Government is elected 
will virun-i'y mean confiscation 
of whjt li|.y hav*.”

more harm than good. 

Speaking in Cheshire, Mr.

land official, Mr. John Martin 
Wales, in a plot to obtain more 
than £lm in dollar premium re- 
bates on non-existent securities. 

Mr. Barnes’ counsel. Mr. Martin 
Tucker. QC, said Mr. Barnes’ use 
of diplomatic passports, which 
he bad created himself as “King” 
of the islands, might seem Ruri- 
tanian. but some countries h»d 
apparently recognised them. Mr. 
Barnes told the court that the 

islands, known as Colonia. lay 
between Manila and Saigon, and 
their nearest “border” was 200 
miles from the coast of Labium. 

They had been “taken over” 
in 1956, when they were unin- 
habited. by a former war hero of 
the Philippines named Thomas 
Cloma. an international lawyer, 
and covered 64.000 square miles 
as an archipelago. 

Mr. Barnes went on; ** In 1973 
Mr. Cloma asked me to join 
their Supreme Council, as he 
feared they might be annexed by 
President Marcos of the Philip- 
pines. and the next year I 
became Head of State. 

“The only reason l came to 
Britain on business was to 
exploit their oil possibilities. 

“Colonia has adopted British 

law for all its legislation, and 
I studied the terms oF Britain's 
North Sea oil leases, as we were 
going to offer five-square mile 
tracts of ocean or islands under 
the rule of Colonia to various 
companies throughout the world. 

“We were .negotiating with 
various American companies for 
survey work, as seisinoloaical 
studies susj'st there is more oil 
under Colonic than in the whole 
of the Persian Gulf.” 

Mr. Barnes, who holds a degree 
of Donor of Philosophy from a 
Florida university said he had

Assembly ‘will underpin unity’ 

ESTABLISHMENT of a Scottish 
Assembly would underpin the 
unity of the United Kingdom, 
Mr. John Smith. Devolution 
Minister., said yesterday. 

He told the Edinburgh branen 
of the Institute of Directors that 
devolution was “ essentially the 
moderate option for Scotland. 

“So much of the discussion 
about Scotland's future, is be- 
devilled hy a futile clash between 
two sets of extremists— separa- 

tists who want to break up 
Britain, and die-hard and blin- 
kered Unionists who resist -any 
move at all to dccenfcrais& deci- 
sion-raking to Scotland. 

”1 believe the Assembly will 
act to underpin the essential 
unity of the kingdom. 1 think 
the Government's plans offer 
Scotland a much more construc- 
tive future than the sterile pro- 
posals of either the separatists 
or tbe centralists.” 

the technique by which certain 
tiny overseas-registered banks 
setting up in Britain have suc- 
ceeded in defrauding the public 
was thrown by a case which 
' ended this week at Knightsbridge 
[Crown Court and revolved 
around the Anguilla-based Indus- 
trial Banking Corporation. 

[ Two men were jailed for 
various offences, including 
obtaining diamonds by falsely 
representing that the company 
was a genuine and honest busi- 
ness which could make payments 
through irrevocable documentary 
credits and in other ways. 

Tbe case is worth attention 
because experience has shown 
[how gullible tbe public can be 
when confronted with a company 
with 3 high-sounding bank-type 
name and an impressive-seeming 
fraud smart operating from it. 

Moreover, when a concern 
mounts dishonest deals with 
international ramifications, as 
has often been the case in the 
last two or three years, a new 
dimension of complication is 
added and detection becomes 
more difficult. 

Also, until a recent damp- 
down, overseas-registered com- 
panies with financially-sounding 
names were able without too 
much difficulty to operate lor a 
time in Britain, without being 
fully subject to the controls 
applying to home-based

After the convictions at the 
Knightsbrldge court last week of 
Mr. William John Morley and 
Mr. Felicio Alberto .Morelia, 
details were recalled OF an 
earlier case, as a result of which 
Mr. Morley had been sentenced 
in February to five years in 
prison. , _ 

That case had concerned 
offences commonly known as 
advance commission frauds. 
These involve the collection of 
commission, often of thousands 
of pounds,, on Che promise of 
fixing np large loans which there 
is in fact no real prospect of 
the person purporting to do the 
business actually arranging. 

It was reported in the court 
this week that Mr. Morley, tt 
financial consultant, had earlier 
been convicted of obiaining 


cheques for a total of £101.000 
by falsely representing that he 
could obtain loans >jf £13m. from 

Industrial Banking Corpora- 
tion was registered in Anguilla, 
a small island in the West 
ladies, but afterwards operated 
from an address io Hano\er

exactly the same as that of a sub- 
sidiary of Guinness Mahon, the 
well-known City of London m*r- 
chant bank, though there was no 
connection whatever between

ormaye nor have been accidental, 
can hardly have hurt the busi-

A major police investigation 
into the case was carried out by 
Detective Chief Inspector Ro> 
Eisey early last year, before the 
accused were arrested in May. 

This inquiry extended M 
South Africa, Anguilla and Arab 
countries and cost £100,000. in- 
cluding the expenses of bringing 
nine witnesses from Jobane.-.- 
burg to give evidence at the

ley and Mr. Morelia were con- 
victed alleged conspiracy "to 
defraud such persons as might be 
induced to supply diamonds a nd 
other precious and semi-precious 
stones on credit to the Industrial 
Banking Corporation and to ii> 
customers by false representa- 
tions that the said ( IBC 1 was a 
genuine and honest business . . . 
that it had sufficient funds to 
guarantee payment for the said 
diamonds . . * and that irrevocahi 
documentary credits drawn upon 
the said f IBC) would guarantee 
payment , . . and by divers other 
fraudulent means and devices. 

A feature of the case was the 
presence among the accused of 
the Rev. Thomas Kemp, a retired 
minister of the United Reformed 
Church, who wore a clerical col- 
lar throughout the trial. He was 
acquitted of all the charges 
against him. 

Prosecuting in the case, JMi\ 
Richard Du Gann. QC. hart 
described the Anguilla'based 
Industrial Banking Corporation 
as “a sham — no more that) a 
facade used by the accused to 
develop credence." 

The court was told by the 
prosecuting counsel that the 
concern had attempted to engage

to finance a $5O0j» cement works 
in South Africa, It had also pro- 

posed to buy quantities of 
diamonds, paying for them with 
'•.-iters of credit, it did obtain 
inti.QQO worth of gems, but the 
seller was not paid. 

Mr. Morley was convicted on 
-ix charges and sent to prison 
fur five years to mn coo- 
■ urrently land concurrently with 
his existing five-year sentence 1 , 
v. ith an additional two years on 
another charge. 

Mr. Morelia was convicted on 
l«vo charges to which he had 
pleaded guilty and received a

m jail. Jud°e Lewisohn stated 
that the sentence would have 
i)<?en longer, had a sum of £50.000 
involved in one of the charges 
not been repaid. 

Over the past two years or so. 
-emor officers of the Mcrtopoli- 
iwn and City or London Police 
Fraud Squads and of Scotland 
Yard's Serious Crimes Squad 
have laid on an operation to in- 
vestigate certain small concerns.

purporting to carry on genuine 
hanking in Britain. 

Businesses looked into include 
,1 number of tiny companies, 
often with high-snu'nding names, 
registered in islands in the 
West Indies and elsewhere. Snme 
::0 people were arrested and a 
number of these still await trial. 

The authorities in Anguilla 
last yestr took a tougher line and 
.struck more than a hundred 
often impressively titled small 
companies off their register. 

Overseas-registered companies, 
even though tiny, which set ud 
business under bank-type names 
in Britain may be wholly legiti- 
mate. Yet it was anomalous 
that, until recently, they were 
able to operate in the UK subject

registered banks. 

However, Jate last year, the 
Trade Department took action 
under section 31 of the Com- 
panies Act, 1976, considerably to 
reduce the number of overseas- 
based concerns with financial 
utles able to conduct business in 
the UK as hitherto. 

More than 40 offshore com*

which had registered abroad and 
then set up in Britain received 
notices from the Department 
that they could' not operate in

THE Treasury yesterday stone- 
walled criticisms fro™ an a “ - 
party Common; committee about 
Government spending plans. 

Tbe Treasury has defended its 
decision not to include in its 
annual spending White Paper a 
ntoro precise assessment of the 
niediuorrerm prospects. It also 
rejects cnix-isms about the 
balance between current and 
capital expenditure. 

These points are made in rhe 
Treasury's reply to tbe March 
report from ib’e Commons ex- 
penditure committee, whose 
general sub-committee held a 
series of public hearings with 
Treasury officials earlier in the 

The three pages of observa- 
tions take the same non-com- 
mittal line adapted by the 
Treasury witnesses. 

The Treasury argues that the 
Government has not thought it 
appropriate to include medium- 
term economic projections in the 
last two years because of the 
great uncertainties involved and 
the likelihood that unjustified 
weight would be placed on the 

Experience has illustrated 
the risks, m present circum- 
stances. of Making firm planning 
decisions too closely to highly 
uncertain projections of the 
economy over a number of 
I years.” 

j The Treasury says that great 
uncertainly surrounds all the 
■main determinants of the future 
) growth of output and the Govern- 
ment therefore seeks to keep its 
plans Hexible, especially for the 
later years of the five-year survey 
period, and to review the figures 

The present approach Is to 
produce an economic assessment 
expressed mainly in qualitative 
terms. The Treasury merely 
repeats the pledge given in oral 
evidence by Mi*. Joel Barnett, 
the Chief Secretary, that the 
Government would consider 
before the next White Paper i.s 
published to what extent more 
quantified economic projections 
should be provided. 

The committee also criticised 
the Govern ment for failing 10 
redress the damage caused to the 
construction industry hy the 
cuts announced in 1976. 

The Treasury points out that 
while some capital expenditure 
in central and local Government 
services will save current spend- 
ing. a great deal does not yield 
a direct financial return, and 
some will provide facilities 
which cost more to maintain and 

” It would not be in the long- 
term interests of the construc- 
tion industry if. with the aim of 
helping tbe industry, total 
planned expenditure were in- 
creased beyond the level at 
■which tt could be sustained.” 

The committee also expressed 
concern about the level of under- 
spending and shortfall in the last 
two financial years. 

The Treasury notes the long- 
term continuing tendeit'iv for 
shortfall to occur and points 10 
difficulties uf prediction, notably 
in area; which cannot be closely 
controlled by l he Government 
since they are influenced hy

Bonus claims by oil 


OIL COMPANIES, trade unions 
and North Sea building eou- 
tractors have agreed to siand 
firm against future claims b.v oil 
platform construction workers 
for end-of-con tract bonus pay- 

The Offshore Industry Liaison 
Cdmutittee, meeting in Glasgow 
yesterday, agreed that these 
claims, should be rejected 
because of their adverse effect 
on platform orders to VK yards. 

The committee, set up two 
years ago to look at problems 
within the offshore industry, 
includes Government representa- 
tives, trade unions, contractors 
and oil companies. Dr. Dickson 
Mabou, junior Energy Minister 
is the chairman. 

The committee recommended 
that "contractors, trades unions 
and clients should act jointly to 
ensure tha r claims for termina- 
tion payments, in violation of 
existing agreements, should be 

Such claims would reduce the 
number of orders and ** so affect 
adversely the continuity of 
employment on UK sites." 

In the past, platform construc- 
tion workers have acepted pay- 
agreements and have then gone 
on strike to support claims for 


end-of-contract bonuses of up to 
£ 2 . 000 . 

The strikes— near iv always un- 
official — have been staged just 
before completion of a platform 
scheduled for summer. 

Delay at this stage cun mean 
that the floating 0 0 platform has 
to be delayed for another year 
because nr winter weather. 

Two years ago. workers at the 
Gray thorp yard refused to com- 
plete a platform for Buniuh Gil 
for the Thistle Field unless they 
were given termination bonuses. 

Eventually. Burniah agreed 10 
foot the bill for the payments, 
rather than lose the platform for 
that year. The total cost tn the 
company was ^anl tu be about 

There is already overcapacity 
in the steri and concrete plat- 
form building industry in 

Orders for concrete platforms < 
thal would otherwise have come 
to the UK could go to Norway or 
Sweden, while steel platform 
orders could go to Holland or 

Dr. Mahon said that, in the next 
18 months, it was expected that 
six nr seven orders for North 
Sej platforms would come to tbe 
UK yards. 

Why ail equities? 

Schlesmeers’ Extra Income Trust is a trustee 
investment and offers one oft he highest mures 
eurremly available from a unit trust invested only in 
ordinary shares. 

Whilst the managers could obtain a still higher 
yield by including some fixed interest investments, 
such investments cannot increase their dividends and 
also have less potential for capital growth. The all- 
equity portfolio of the Schlcsingcr Extra Income 
Trust, by contrast, maximises the potential for growth 
of income and capital. 

A current opportunity 

By careful selection of sound stocks including 
attractive reeo\ ery situations and well-researched 
regional equities. Schlesingers provide a particularly 
b igh cq uity-based yield, 

_ However the growing relative attraction of 
ordinary shares with very high yields suggest that 
such yields may not be available to new investors 

Indeed, many investors have recognised the 
urgency of securing ibis opportunity by placing over 
dWm in the fund since its inception in May 1977. 

Over this period, the unit price has risen 25 0 1 and the 
FT Actuaries All-share Index 17®,;. 

Weihcrefore recommend immediate investment 
at the current, high rate of return to gain the potential 
of capital appreciation. Yourinvestmeni should be.

IX A STRONG counter-attack 
on Iht- Central Electricity 
Generating Board, the National 
CojI Board yesterday rejected the 
assumptions made in the Generat- 
ing Board's corporate plan that 
coal output would fall greatly 
short of its targets. 

The Coa! Board also makes it 
clear that it considers the rate 
of expansion in nuclear power 
envisaged by the Generating 
Board as too rapid, and harmful 
to the orderly expansion uf coal 

However, the Government, 
while stressing that it continues 
its policy oF strong support for 
the coal industry, admitted that 
there was a possibility of “ short- 
term surpluses of production " of 

The Generating Board's plan 
estimates that the Coal Board 
will be down 20m tons on its 
lo5m ion targe' in 1985, and as 
much as 60m tuns down on its 
170m ton target in -000. 

In addition, the corporate plan 
lays considerable stress on the 
desirability of nuclear power 
stations on both cost and environ- 
mental grounds. 

The only coal-fired power 
station in the Generality Board’s 
future plans is Drax B. which it 
has been ordered to build by 
the Government. 

The Coal Board said that dis- 
cussions must be held between 
the two boards oa the immediate 
future period— up to 1990 — and 
on the period beyond, where 
options were much wider. 

“ In the period up to 1990. the 
main problem relates to the rela- 
tive use of coai and fuel oil. 

“ There could be circumstances 
under which the ability of the 
cene ratine board to switch 
quickly from coal to fuel oil in 
response to fluctuations in vela- 
live prices would be incompatible 
with’ the sensible long-term plan- 
ning r,f :h.? coal industry. 

- The pust-1990 period raises 
the issue or the size of the 
nuclear programme, which the 
generating board envisages as 
much greater than that included 
in tbe recent Green Paper on 
energy policy. 

"The Coal Board’s view has 
always been that a country must 
have" a nuclear power capability, 
and that a progressive nuclear 
programme will be required.’’ 

In a strong endorsement of the 
tuiure rule for coal. Mr. Alex 
Eadie, 3 Junior Energy Minister, 
told the South Derbyshire 
National Union of Mineworkers* 
conference in Blackpool yester- 
day that coal wa» an essential 
feature in the Government’s 
plans for energy self-sufficiency 
through the 1980s, and had a 
major contribution to make in 
the 1990s and beyond. 

He admitted, however, that 
difficulties might arise in finding 
markets in the immediate future. 

" One of the difficulties faced 
by the coal industry with its long 
lead times from planning to pro- 
duction is that productive 
capacity cannot be varied rapidly 
to meet short-term fluctuations in 
the market. 

“The present investment pro- 
gramme is geared to the longer 
term and so there may be short- 
term surpluses of production." 

The Government has said it 
would give assistance to counter- 
act these fluctuations. 

In the past financial year, it 
had paid £lS.7m to the Coal 
Board towards the costs of stock- 
ing coa). and a further £5.4m to 
assist coal sales. 



SHUP STEWARDS at the Mon- 
santo group’s plant at Seal Sands, 
Cleveland, say that some workers 
there are exposed to dangerously 
hiun levels of acrylonitrile, a 
clv mical used in making plastics 
3nd acrylic fibres. 

The perm it led exposure level of 
Ion,: rile is 20 parts a million. 
The Seal Sands shop stewards 
say ni. mi loving has shown that 
one nun at the plant was exposed 
to 214 parti a million and another 
to 10C. 

It is claimed that neither was 
wearing protective breathing 
apparatus. A third man. wearing 
breathing apparatus, was said to 
have been exposed to a level of 

Monsanto said yesterday that it 
could neither confirm nor deny 
that workers had been exposed to 
these high levels or acrylonitrile. 
The shop stewards’ claims were 
now the subject oF an internal 
investigation, and "at this point 
the full facts have not been

The meeting followed 3 BBC 
Panorama programme on health 
and safety which dealt with the

Dr. jMunn said at the meeting 
that exposure levels at the Seal

on the construction site were 
" .substantially less."

North West protest 
over regional aid 


THE GOVERNMENT was yester- 
day charged with favouring Scot- 
land. Wales, and the North East 
of England in allocution of 
regional assistance, to the detri- 
ment of the equally needy North 

The charge is one that has 
been levelled increasingly in the 
North West recently and in 
Yorkshire, but details of the 
grievance were yesterday spelled 
out more fully than before by 
Mt. Arnold Tweedale, chairman 
of the North West Industrial 
Development Association. 

Loss of jobs 

He lold the association's 
annual meeting of the loss of 
207.000 jobs in the North West 
since 1965 — a fall of 7.3 per 
cent, compared with 3.2 per cent 
in Wales, 2.1 per cent in Scot- 
land and only 1.2 per cent in 
the North EasL 

The North West's share of 
national unemployment bad also 
increased over the same period 
from under 13 per cent to 
around 15 per cent, while its 
share of vacancies bad fallen 
from 12 per cent to 8.5 per cent 

The ratio of unemployed 
people to vacancies was higher 
than in any other region in 
Great Britain. 

Mr. Tweedale claimed that the 
assistance which the area was 
receiving from the Government 
and the EEC was lower than in 
other regions. 

Total assistance per head of 
working population received 
under the Industry Act up to 
March last year had amounted to 
only £205 in the North West, 
compared with £581 in Scotland, 
£614 in Wales and £866 in the 
North EasL 

Assistance from Brussels 
under the European Regional 
Fund up to the end of last year 
totalled £71 per unemployed per- 
son in the North West, com- 
pared with £206 in Scotland. 
£232 in Wales and £376 in the 
North East 

Mr. Tweedale was speaking 
before an audience which was 
meant to include Mr. Eric 
Varley, the Secretary for Indus- 
try. who was forced to withdraw 
at short notice. He expressed 
concern that Wales and Scotland 
now hare a further advantage 
as a re-sult of the setting up of 
their own development agencies. 

He urged the Department of 
Industry and the National Enter- 
prise Board to consider the 
North West as a location for the 
new micro-electronics plant 
which the Government plans to

Blood troubles 

The local factory inspectorate 
in Cleveland said yesterday that 
if the reports of high exposure 
levels proved accurate. it 
" would certainly be looking into 
the matter." 

One inspector said a level of 
214 was "exceptionally high.” 
particularly if the person exposed 
to it was not wearing breathing 

Exposure 10 dangerous levels 
of acrylonitrile leads to breath- 
ing difficulties and in a rise of 
cyanide levels in the blond. 
There are claims that it can also 
lead to bowel and lung cancer. 

At the beginning nf this year 
t he U.S. 1 n trod need an 
emergency exposure level of two 
parts a million for acrylonitrile 
because of the possible carcino- 
genic effects of the chemical. 

The previous limit was 20. as 
in the UK. The U.S. will fix a 
new permanent standard later 
this year. 

THE COAL industry is hem-.* 
forced by mounting public pro- 
sure lu find better ways of dis- 
posing of colliery waste. Mr. 
Robert Dunn, dlrector-geni-tal :if 
mining at the National Coal 
Board, said yesterday. 

Mr. Dunn told the Association 
of Mining. Electrical and Mech- 
anical Engineers' convention ur 
Harrogate that the best way in- 
dispose of waste was to find a 
use for it. 

About 5ni- tonnes of waste a 
year— one- ten th of total waMe 
production— was, being used for 
surfacing running tracks and 
tennis courts, filling roads and 
in land reclamation, in sea and 
river defences and cement pro- 

However, scarcity or land in 
some areas, together with moves 
to develop large minmg com- 
plexes in traditionally non- 
mining areas, would create in- 
creased pressure to find more 
uses for the waste. 

“ A major factor in the success 
of the research and commercial 
effort we are putting into finding 
additional uses will he the 
acceptance of colliery waste . 1 $ 
an alternative to other 
commonly-used materials. 

"I am thinking especially of 
its value as construction blocks 
for the building industry."

enables the company to consume 
internally a higher proportion of 
its own output of tool and high-

The market for special steels 
generally remains [depressed, 
with most Sheffield producers

of weak demand and heavy 
pressure of imports, particularly 
from Germany. '

Banknote examiners 


win closed shop 


THE BANK of England has con-, 
ceded a post-entry dosed shop 
to banknote examiners at its 
Loughton printing works in Essex 
after a five- week strike by 500 
members of the Society of 
Graphical and Allied Trades, the 
union said yesterday. Present 
non-union workers will not be 
compelled to join. 

A mass meeting of the strikers 
yesterday decided to return to 

work next week after receiving 
.what were understood -to.. be 
firmer assurances also on ‘super- 
visors' union memership. 

The bank has made Jcnown its 
willingness to introduce a post- 
entrv closed shop for some time 
in line with its closed shop agree- 
ment with some other, groups in 
the works, but the strikers were 
apparently not satisfied until 
yesterday that steps would be 
taken to ensure union member- 
ship among hew entrants. 

The official shrike began to bite 
only at the . end of May when 
production started to be .seriously 
affected. ' 

Even so, the impact was made 
less severe by the fact that it

ig race for the silicon chip 


already started un the outcome 
i»f a race between the National 
Enterprise Board and the General 
Electric Company for a share of 
the mass semi-conductor market 
i-f Hie ISSO.s. 

GEC is hoping to set up a joint 
venture with Fairchild, the U.S. 
se in j - conductor company, while 
the Board intends to go ii alone 
with the help of a group of six to 
eight U.S. and British expatriate 
leclinlogists. brought together by- 
Mr. Dick Petri iz. a Texas venture, 

Both ventures, however, appear 
to be directed at the same 
market, that for high denseiiy 
memories for computers and 
other standard applications. 

The main target for the Enter- 
prise Board is a silicon chip 
which contains B4.000 separate 
memory cells. This product is 
now being developed by several 
major semi-conductor companies 
in the U.S. and Japan. 

It seems certain that the CIEC- 
Fai retold plans will be aimed 

at the same target. Since this 
is a highly competitive race 
against established giants, the 
question is whether either or 
both can succeed, and whether 
there is room in the UK for two 
new ventures of this kind. 

The National Enterprise Board 
is pinning its hopes on the 
brilliance of the team which it 
has picked. To leapfrog the 
established companies it will 
have lu entice men who arc 
already at the forefront of Die

The U.S. competition is close 
behind. Intel. .Mostek and Texas 
Instruments, the three leading 
companies in this branch of 
semi-conductor technology, are 
all expected to produce their 
first 64k RAMs this year. 

The first company to offer a 
chip in the standard 16-pin pack- 
age using the normal five-volt 
supply will have a head start in 
a market expected to be worth 
SI 5tn in 1979 rising rapidly to 
S250ra by 19S3. 

The 64k RAM will rapidly fake 
over from high density memory 
chips now on the market which 
are moving from 4.000 cells per 
chip to 16,000 (the 16k BAM;, 

The significance of the 64k 
RAM is hot merely that it will 
store four times as much infor- 
mation in the same space as the 
most advanced memory at pre- 
sent on the tnarkcL 

A more important fact is that 
it will bring the present tech- 
nology for etching circuits on 
silicon almost to its theoretical 

The next generation of circuits 
will require the present etching 
processes to be replaced by more 
expensive X-ray equipment and 
electron beams under computer 
control which can implant tran- 
sistors directly onto the silicon 

Research into X-ray tech- 
niques and electron beam litho- 
graphy, now well under way, 
indicates that capital costs in the 
semi-conductor industry vrili rise 
rapidly in the 1980s perhaps to 
ten times the present level or 


The prospect of huge capital 
expenditures clearly provides a 
powerful Incentive for companies 
like Fairchild lo seek a richer 

In the current year. Fairchild 
is expecting to spend about £15m 
on capital equipment, compared 
with more than £50m by its 
larger rival. Texas instruments. 
|n the longer term, therefore, an 
injection oF cash from a com- 
pany hke GEC could be needed 
to stay in the race. 

For its part GEC has almost 
certainly considered the pos- 
sibility of un outright take-over 
of Fairchild, which GEC could 

easily afford at a market 
capitalisation of just uver £lU0ni. 

However, apart from possible 
political difficulties, a take-over 
would present great management 
problems since GEC has lit lie 
expertise in the U.S. semi- 
conductor market. A joint ven- 
ture in the UK would therefore 
look more sensible, with GEC. 
perhaps taking a minority slice 
of" Fairchild’s equity. 

The question remains what 
technical expertise Fairchild can 
provide in the area of metal 
oxide silicon (MOSt memories 
which seem likely to be the basis 
of any new venture in the UK. 

Hitherto. Fairchild's eminence 
has been in the rather different 
area of bi-polar and charged 
coupled device (CCDi integrated 
circuits. Its bi-polar memories 
have bad the advantage of high 
speed needed at the very centre 
of large computers. 

But as packing densities 
increase, the speed of the rival 
MOS integrated circuits has been 
improving. When the new -64k 
MOS memory comes on the 
market, it may be that some of 
the technical advantages of Fair- 
child's bi-polar circuits would be 
eroded. The CCD memories com- 
pete for the market for bulk 
storage of information rather 
than the central core of computer 

For these reasons there may be 
a good case for Fairchild to 
expand its MOS production with 
a factory in the UK. An 
additional advantage lor Fair- 

child would be that labour costs 
in the UK especially for skilled 
engineers, are relatively ]ow. It 
is also keen to achieve coopera- 
tion with a company which con- 
verts silicon chips into equipment 
and systems. 

In addition, all the leading U.S. 
semi-conductor companies have 
been anxious for some time in 
case the growing protectionism 
in Europe could work against 
companies which do not have 
semiconductor manufacturing 
plants in Europe. 

They have also been looking 
carefully at the large amounts of 
assistance to the industry now 
being considered by the French. 
German and UK Governments 

Even in the UK, where £50m of 
taxpayers' money is likely to be 
channelled directly through the 
National Enterprise Board into a 
new subsidiary, additional sub- 

sidy of E50m to £Sflm is likely to 
be offered to established com- 
panies in the field, including 

Although no details of possible 
deal between Fairchild and GEC 
have >et been made public, it is 
likely that the two companies 
arc still talking ahout the vital 
issue of who would control a new 
joint venture. 

Fairchild indicated yesterday 
that it is also talking to other 
companies in the world. These 
probably include Thomson CSF, 
France's main semi-conductor 
manufacturer, which is looking 
for a U.S. partner and has been 
offered a substantial dowry from 
the French Government if it finds 


GEC, like its rivals Thomson 
and German Siemens, has a diffi- 
cult task of finding a suitable 
partner or acquisition in the U.S. 

All three companies believe 
that a U.S. link is needed, both 
to gain access to a rapidly mov- 
ing technology and to capture 
the share of the U.S. market 
which must be the pre-requisite 
for mass production of standard 
components like computer 
memories and tnicro-co ot puters. 

Siemens and GEC have both 
realised that acquisition of a 
small semi-conductor company 
could be ba 2 ardous because of 
the danger that the key man- 
agers and scientists would leave 
after a take-over. 

On the other hand the famous 
names in the industry are prob- 
ably too big to be taken over 
and digested by any European 
company. And the risks would 
be very high. 

A joint venture, therefore, 
would seem the best compromise 
for GEC. It would offer, on the 
one hand, the possibility of big 
profits if it could be successful 
in the expanding market for 
standard memories and pro- 

But even if the venture were 
not profitable. GEC would gain 
access to the “ leading edge " 
or technology which it will need 
for the successful design of a 
whole range of its systems. 

Any losses could be set against 
the substantia! research and 
development sums which il 
would in any case have to com- 
mit lo this field. I

Monday, the odds were that the 
new- long tap (Exchequer 12 
per cent 2013/17) would be 
sold out on day one. But . the 
stags started to think again 
when the authorities acted with 
indecent haste to replace the 
. exhausted short tap on Monday, 
.and Wednesday's trade fiugres 
also - made them pause for 

. In the end, probably about ». 
third of the long tap was left 
unsold when the applications, 
had been. counted up on Thurs- 
day, and the tap stock started 
life at a small discount. After 
that, there were no queues for 
the new short tap yesterday.

Guinness Chloride, Westland,

those which left the analysts

bright figures from Pilkington 

Barclays 9 trust deal 

Barclays Bank's scheme to 
buy the Investment Trust 
Corporation (ITC) for £9 3m 
in shares and pass it on to the 
Post Office Staff Superannua- 
tion. Fund for £8 5 m in cash is 
an ingenious deal which should 
leave everyone involved feeling 
happy apart, from Barclays' 
shareholders. They can be 
forgiven for feeling disgruntled. 

The logic for the bank is that 
this three-cornered scheme is a

at a discount, of -10 P er cen t 
against 15. to 20 per cent with 
a rights issue, is irrelevant. The 
discount is being given away 
to outsiders— TTG' shareholders 
and cannot be compared with 
a discount to existing holders. 
The cost of this 'discount is of 
course being boThe by the com- 
pany-+effe ctlvely existing share-

a smaller stake.'. In their com- 

Shareholders may fed a divi- 
dend increase of 20 per cent is 
inadequate compensation for the 
dilution of their interests, and 
already there seems to be a fair 
amount of resentment building 
up in the institutions. 

Westland shocker 

The old tale about bad figures 
taking a lot longer to add up 
was certainly borne out by West- 
land Aircraft's Interim results 
which did not appear until about 
7 pra on Wednesday night The 
news, contrary, to analysts' 
expectations, was very bad. As 
a result of continuing problems 
on the Lynx helicopter project 
for the Ministry :-,of Defence 
further provisions -+ possibly as 
great, or even more than the 
£6)m provided last year — will 
be necessary in 1977-78. This 
implies that Westland's largest 
operating unit — helicopters — 
will end the year ttrSeptember 

with a loss, against a profit of 
£3.4m last time. And there seems 
little doubt that group pre-tax 
profits for the year will show a 
substantial reduction on last 
voar’s £5.8m, itself down from 

Westland’s problem this time 
is the helicopter factory at 
Yeovil, where the earnings of 
2,000 employees are determined 
by the piecework earnings of less 
than half that number. How- 
ever, negotiations are still going 
on. And since provisions already 
made (and anticipated) take into 
account likely levels of wage in- 
flation until the contract is com- 
pleted, it is possible that even- 
tual losses could be lower. 

The news sent Westland’s share 
price into a spin on Thursday, 
knocking £ll)m ott the 
capitalisation, but a slight 
recovery yesterday lett the 
shares 11 *p down for the week 
at 35p.

Shipping buffeted 

The shipping sector continues 
to be buffeted by bad news. This 
week London and Overseas 
Freighters reported attributable 
losses of £4 .3m, against profits 
of roughly the S3me order the 
previous year, missed its divi- 
dend and announced that it was 
seeking Government help in 
postponing its loan repayments. 
The Lofs share price ended the 
week over 25 per cent lower, 
and once again our sbipping sec- 
tor index moved in the opposite 
direction to the market genera- 

Scarcely a week goes by at 
the moment without a shipping 
company coming out with a 
gloomy statement. Apart from 
Lofs. British and Common- 
wealth's results on Thursday, 
showed that its shipping side 
lost over £0.5m in the second 
half while in the previous week 
both Furness Withy and P and O 
emphasised the distressed state 
of the industry. 

The problems are well known. 
There is a chronic surplus of 
shipping tonnage which is 
keeping freight rates far too 
low while there is also a tre- 
mendous overcapacity in the 
world shipbuilding industry. 
Until equilibrium is reached the 
industry is going to be in the

This had a dramatic impact 
on bank loans which rose by 

last year but at an annual rate 
•of 47bn dollars in the first 
quarter of this year. The cost 
of corporate borrowing has risen 
by 2 to 3 per cent over the last 
year and the question over the 
short-term future of the stock 
market is now whether investors 
will continue to take the benign 
view of tighter credit which has 

been a notable feature of the 
current rally. 

The Federal Reserve board is 
widely expected to raise its key 
short-term interest rate the 
Fed Funds rate — before the 
end of the m.mth in an attempt 
to curb the growth in the money 
supply and hence attack the 
expected 1S7S inflation rate of 
about 7 per cent. 

Will the market take an in- 
crease in the Fed funds rale 
from 7 1 . per cent to say /J per 
cent as" a further cheering sign 
that both the level of inflation 
and the level of economic 
activity will be lowered and the 
econoniv perhaps positioned 
better for a further advance in 
198U? Or will it fear that the lb- 
month outlook is sufficiently 
obscure to justify greater caution 
in the equity front? Moreover 
will the increase in interest 
rates niaki- other debt instru- 
ments significantly more allur- 
ing than equities? 

These arc some of the 
questions being pondered on 
Wall Street, where the market's 
performance this month is con- 
sidered e:rtrendy impressive for 
a .Tune. During the week trading 
has been overshadowed by the 
dollar's renewed weakness 
against the Yen and by worries 
over short-term interest rates,

An education tax 



AS-. PARENTS, . you" have an 
inalienable .right, to educate 
your children in the.' best 
possible manner and' to spend 
.money to achieve this. You 
may laugh, but this principle 
v? as given some support under 
Section 375 of the Income and 
Corporation Taxes Act 1970, 
which exempts scholarships 
from tax,' and Section. 45 of the 
Finance Act 0975,' which 
exempts normal .expenditure on 
education from Capital Transfer 

■But if you are a higher-paid 
employee, this expenditure has 
to come from your after-tax 
id come, or from your hard- 



earned savings according to the 
latest move from the Inland 
.Revenue. If relatives try to 
help out, they could be subject 
to CTT, and now if your 
employer helps out, you could 
face a tax liability do such 

This week the Inland Revenue 
announced that, as from 
Wednesday June 14, all 
scholarships awarded in the 

future by employers to assist jn 
the education, of children of 
.employees would' be subject to 
tax as benefits? in kind under 
Section. 6 1 of the Finance Act 
1976. The Budget Of that year 
was effectively 'a declaration of 
war against the use of fringe 
benefits and ’that particular 
Section supplied, the ammuni- 
tion to the Revenue-. And many 
fringe benefit’ payments have 
come under alta<$- 
But up to now the Revenue 
has refrained.- from taking 
action on scholarships provided 
by employers,, on the grounds 
that Section. 375 mentioned 
above stopped them. The past 
two years has seen a prolifera- 
tion of educational trusts set up 
by employers. Many insurance 
brokers dealing in employee 
benefit provision have been 
instrumental in designing and 
administering such trusts. They 
claim to have tafeeb Counsel’s 
opinion before; setting up such 
trusts. ' 

In- most cases-, these tru.ns 
have been available to children 
qF all employees and certain 
educational standards have to 
be reached before any award is 
made. But naturally, it is the 
higher-paid employee who has 
tended to apply. 

Opinion with t&e tax a ccoun- 

Revealing the facts 

RARELY A week goes by these 
days without at least one major 
item emerging on investment 
trusts: a complete contrast to 
the situation existing a couple 
of years ago, Then the industry 
operated in a complete absence 
of publicity, with no one able 
to get even mildly enthusiastic 
over what trusts were doing or 
how they were performing. 

. But this week has been ait 
exceptional one for news, even 
by current standards. The 
novel bid by Barclays Bank for 
the Investment Trust Corpora- 
tion highlighted the investment 
potential of these trusts froth 
a takeover situation. Then 
came the long awaited official 
year book* on the industry from 
The Association of Investment 
Trust Companies and the . start 
of a monthly service of per- 
formance figures also from the 

The. association . . has 
over the past few years 



been endeavouring to get 
the investing- 'public and 
' institutions." interested in the 
operations of investment trust 
companies, though the recent 
bids by the pension funds of 
the nationalised boards have 
created much more ^pterest 
than the efforts of the associa- 
tion. But all efforts have been 
handicapped by a relative, lack 
of knowledge concerning what 
the trusts offered as. invest- 
ment vehicles, how they were 
taxed, how they invested, and 
above all what they offered to 
investors in comparison with 
unit trusts. Now this book 
sets out to explain these 
features and many more to the 
general public. 

The first section is possibly 
The most useful to the un- 
initiated, because it explains the 
functions of investment trusts 
with a minimum of technical 
jargon. I found the article 
on taxation lurid . and the . com- 
parison between investment and 
unit trusts . as . investment 
vehicles very informative. If 

the book does stimulate interest, 
then there is an article on how 
to buy investment trust shares. 
. The second section lists the 
management groups in this 
sector together', with 'The trusts 
in their stables. One . important 
criteria in selected^, an invest- 
ment is to ascertah^the quality 
of 4he management is. sec- 

tion will help in maftng that 
assessment. .• 

The third section is the ortp 
that will interest the' adviser 
as well as' the indiridual in- 
vestor, 'for' it contains details of 
each trust together* with com- 
prehensive statistics on invest- 
ment portfolios, hjstory of share 
prices, asset values and divi-' 
dend distributions. If the book 
bad contained/ nothiag else, it 
would . still have filled a huge 
gap in the information available 
on the industry. 

The final section contains 
details at performance by man- 
agement group and the associa- 
tion intends this to be an on- 
going exercise. The ability to 
measure the performance of 
one’s investments is essential 
and a past history of perfforxn- 
a nee is useful in reaching, in: 
vestment decisions. The specia- 
list stockbrokers have published 
regular performance figures 
over a long period, but these 
figures from the association 'are 
available to ail. 

The investment potential, of 
investment trusts was .high- 
lighted this week by Mr. George 
Stout a deputy chairman of 
the Association and general 
manager, of the Alliance Trust 
He -forecast that pension funds; 
with their huge cash flows, will 
force up the price of trust shares 
in their endeavour to acquire 
the underlying assets. Invpstoxs 
seeking to oash-jn on this situa- 
tion will find this book. 'ex- 
tremely useful.

Time to change? 

YESTERDAY’S announcement 
of the laterir Retail Pricer Index, 
showing inflation still well 
below 10; per cent, comes as 
welcome news to the economy. 
So it may seem churlish to point 
out that the return .oa the 
Index-Linked National Savings 
Certificates Retirement Issue 
has droped. steadily, with the 
falling rate of inflation and now 
stands ■ below that obtainable 
from otfter.fonns of investment. 
Since predictions are that the 
rate of inflation is not likely to 
return to double figures, this 
year, it may welt be opportune 
to consider switching invest- 
ments, at least temporarily- 

The benefits paid on these 
Retirement Certificates are free 
of all taxes, so switching is only 
worth while to investors 
not pay tax. But this, is cer- 
tainly the case with., many 
holders of these certificates.. 

The certificates have. given a 
gOad return up to now 51.6 per 

cent to those investoi£>.who 
bought at the outset ii.jJune 
.1975, But investors need, to con- 
sider the expected returns in 
the future and here there is a 
. case, for switching. The National 
Savings Bank is paying per 
cent on deposit account^.- A 
one-year investment in. -local 
authorities yields about 9.5_per 
cent, while more adventurous, 
investors could consider the pos- 
sibilities of high-income trusts 
mentioned elsewhere on this 
page. , , : 

If one reads the forecasts, 
the impression given is that the 
in Elation rate could bev. rising 
again next year, so investors 
thinking of switching , need .to 
watch the economic scene quite 
closely. You need an. .invest- 
ment which can be easily 
realised, and in this respect unit 
trusts need careful timing. But 
it Is an. opportunity, to increase 
the return oh your investments! 

lanL is that almost certainly th/s 
decision will be tested in the 
Courts. But even so, does this 
action of the Revenue herald ( 
the ultimate demise of such 
assistance by employers? This | 
is by no means certain; the 
ingenuity of the tax planners 
can usually find a way round 
moves of this kind. 

The taxation of. benefits in 
kind is complex, like most tax 
legislation, but the Revenue 
divides the population in two 
groups — directors and higher- 
paid and others. The higher- 
paid, by Revenue definition, are 
those earning £7,500 or more a 
year and this limit is revised 
periodically. The former class 
have fringe benefits taxed Dn the 
cost to the employer, others are 
taxed on its rcsalablc value. 
Thus this move by the Revenue 
means that the higher-paid will 
pay tax on the amount of the 
scholarship- award, whereas the 
lower paid will not be affected, 
since it has no value on the 

It must be remembered that 
the £7,500 limit includes the 
value of all fringe benefits 
besides your earnings. Since 
fees are nudging £2.000 a year, 
the award of a scholarship 
could put you into the category 
of higher-paid. Where both 
husband and wife can apply for 
a scholarship with their 
respective employers, it may 
well be profitable for tbe wife 
to apply if she is earning less, 
and opt for separate assessment. 
But this Revenue decision could 
be challenged in the Courts so 
this may not be the final word 
on the subject. 

Public stay away 

Lions and private clients have 
shown some interest in the 
eight-week-old London traded 
options market, but the bulk of 
the business is between the 
professionals — the jobbers, the 
market makers and brokers 
exercising a discretionary con- 
trol over their private clients’ 

Brokers close to the market 
claim that it is still rare for a 
private client to initiate an 
options transaction. either 
writing or buying. The bulk of 



the private client money comes 
from cither private client port- 
folios over which brokers 
exercise some discretionary con- 
trol or as a result of trans- 
actions executed on a brokers’ 

Market makers are still the 
leading writers of options 
although there has been some 
tentative interest shown by 
private clients. Institutions and 
merchant banks have been 
conspicuous by their absence. 
The individual investors writing 
options tend to have medium- 
sized portfolios with a market 
value in excess of £75,000 and 
a holding in three to five of the 
underlying slocks. 

in general thy private 
investors write between three 
and seven options in nne or two 
of the underlying stocks they 
hold and rarely commit more 
than 70 per cent of their 

Institutions have shown 
interest in buying options 
although private client buying 
and buying by brokers 
dominates. There has been 
little interest in secondary 
market buying and selling 

The main stumbling blocks 
are the tax problem; a difficulty 
getting bank guarantees by 
writers who wish to be 
••uncovered” but who don’t 
wish to put up the required 
cash collateral, and a lack of 

The lack «»C liquidity is the 
greatest problem. Last Thursday 
a. buying order for 60 Shell July 
550 was placed. By midday only 
20 had been bought. When the 
market first opened it took 
three days ir> dear a buying 
order lor -iij contracts. 

The initiators of the London 
options market are happy with 
their fledgling. They will 
continue to seek to have the 
tax position altered and they 
will encourage the ciearers to 
issue guaramec-s. But they still 
have to boost liquidity. It will 
need an education programme 
or a reasonably sustained 
Upwards movement in the 
underlying share-market. There 
is no spur like speculative 
profits t»> bring new people into 
a new market. 

HIGH INCOME funds are often 
considered the bread and butter 
iU’ the unit trust industry. - 

This implies Thar they may 
not be very exciting and yet, 
given the wide spread of 
equities and often significant 
preference share base, they are 
usually a sound investment. 
Reflecting this and the current 
demand for such funds — second 
only to the rush for North 
America — Gartmore has just 
launched an Extra Income Trust 
with an estimated gross starting 
yield of 9J per cent. Inflation 
is now well below 10 per cent, 
and according to the Govern- 
ment set to stay there until the 
end of the year. So the sort of 
returns you can now get from 
investing your capital for 
income look impressive com- 
pared with the increase in living 

What, though, arc the specific 
advantages of a high income 
Fund? Firsr, your investment 
will give you a regular return 
which, depending ou the fund 
manager's skill and tbe state 
of the stock market, should 
increase wiib time. Dividends 
from most high income funds 
have risen in the last year in 
terms of income per unit — 
Arbulhuot’s Extra Income and 
Preference funds are notable 
exceptions but. according to the 
group, rapid expansion at the 
end of last year made it difficult 
to get the cash into the market. 

Income rises of course, not 
only because of increased divi- 
dends from the shares in a port- 
folio and a higher yield but 
because the underlying value of 
the units improve. Capital 
growth then is a sometimes for- 



gotten benefit of high income 
funds. In this respect the last 
year has been extremely good 
for these funds which often 
invest in good second line com- 
panies, many of which have 



done better than “blue chips” in 
the prevailing economic climate. 

Many high income funds are 
geared up with a certain steady 
percentage r*f preference shares. 
It is well to find our exactly 
what that proportion is. Prefer- 
ence shares tend to have a yield 

advantage at the outset, but in a 
rising market they will drag 
down the underlying value of 
your units. 

Income funds are a particu- 
larly good investment for the 
low or nil taxpayer. Dividends 
are always paid net, but they 
will be accompanied by a lax 
credit assessed at the standard 
rate. If you pay tax below this 
rate, or you don’t pay any tax at 
all, you can reclaim the money 
from the Inland Revenue. If 
you pay at a higher rate, the 
credits can be used to offset part 
of that liability. 

If you already hold units, in- 
cidentally, there is one reason 
why you might consider selling 
this year. Since April l. 1977 
( retrospectively from April this 
year) unit trusts have been pay- 
ing a concessionary capital gains 
tax rale of 10 per cent. But up 
to March 31, 1979. unit holders 
will get a tax credit for the old 
rate of 17 per cent which can 
now be used If your gains do 
not exceed £5.000.

Estimated Gross Starting Yield 

H ere is a new unit trust from Gartmore with 
an estimated gross commencing yield of 
9j°o- This compares favourably with 
many other forms of pure equity investment, 
Gartmore propose to achieve this by carefully 
choosing a portfolio of ordinary shares in small, 
sound UK companies with above-average 
yields. With professional dav-to-duy 
management, this strategy gives investors a 
high level of income together with good 
prospects of long-term capital growth. 

Because such shares cannot be bought in 
imlimired numbers, Gartmore Svill be 
restricting the number of units under this 
particular pfter to io million. 

A team with an 
outstanding record 

The management of the new trust is to be 
undertaken by the same team that has been 
managing the successful Gartmore High Income 
Trust since its launch. You can read about High 
Income Trust s outstanding record under the 
‘Quarterly Income Plan* section. 

The protection 
of a wide spread 

Gartmore Extra Income Trust will be invested in 
about 100 different securities so that your money is 
widely spread 1 This factor is especially important 
in a high yielding unit trust which includes second 
line shares. 

With this in mind the Managers do not intend tn 
invest more than 2% of the overall portfolio in any 
one company* 

You should remember that tbe price of units and 
the income from them can go down as well as up. ■ 
You should regard your investment as long-term. 

The offer 

This offer at 25p per unit will close when io million 
units have been allocated to investors, or on Sth July, 
1978, whichever is the earlier. Should the offer dose 
early, a notice will be published in the Financial 
Times and all unsuccessful applicants will be 

After the close of this otter, units will be available 
at the daily ottered price. 

To ’apply, simply fill in the relevant coupon and 
send it to Gartmore Fund Managers with your 
cheque. The minimum investment is £200. 

TheNew Gartmore 
Quarterly Income Plan 

If you want a high regular income. Gartmore can. 
now offer y* >u rhe Quarterly Income Plan. U nder 
this plan your investment is shared between the 
new Gartmore Extra Income Trust and Gartmore ' 
High Income Trust. Both of these unit mists pay 
income half-yearly, bur < m dares 3 months apart. 
This results in quarterly income distributions on 
15th March, 15th June, 15th September and 15th 
December. So you get your income when you Deed 
it to pay your bills— quarterly. 

What would you receive? 

On 15th June, 1978 the offer price of Gartmore High 
Income Units was 63. 3p to give an estimated gross 
yield of 845' % p.a. 

On this basis, assuming you invested your money 
equally between both trusts, you would receive an. . 
average estimated income ( in quarterly instalments) 
of 8.S5", , p.a. This will naturally vary slightly from 
quarter to quarter. 

Gartmore High Income Trust is invested mainly 
in high-yielding equities in a wide range of 
industries and some fixed-interest investments. 

Investors who purchased units in tin's trust when 
it was launched in A lurch 1 9 75, have seen rhe offer 

price of units increase by 131.0° ' 0 compared with a 
rise in the. Financial Times Industrial Ordinary 
Share Index over the same period of 72.2* 0 * In 
addition, they have received a steadily growing level 
of income payments which now total £48.3 5 gross 
per £100 invested at the launch. 

To invest in the Quarterly Income Plan, please 
complete the coupon below and send it with your 
cheque. The minimum investment in each trust is 
£200, so you need only £400 to take advantage of 
rhe Quarterly Income Plan. Your fi rst income 
payment will be made on 15th September.

HOW MUCH extra does the fact 
that someone with a Known 
name has lived in the house put 
on tlie price? Quite a bit. 1 sus- 
pect, looking through the cur- 
rent crop of " association 
houses.” And. of course, the 
attraction of being able to drop 
the names of such distinguished 
persona as the Poet Laureate, 
j the Leader of the Opposition, 
| and even a television medico 
I obviously adds enormously to 
1 the eclat of a place. 

\ Literary associations have a 
strong pull, whether they go 
with an actual property, or just 
the place. Prospective buyers 
desirous of living somewhere 
that inspired poems or books, 
would do well to invest in The 
Orford Lilt-rant Guide to the 
Burnish Jsiex. edited by Dorothy 
Eagle and Hilary- Carnell (pub- 
lished by Oxford University 
Press. 1976. A'3.95). 

Entries range from Abbots- 

ford, the home of Sir Walter 
Scott, to Zenuor, the Coniish 
village where D. H. Lawrence 
and his wife lived in 1916-1917. 

Or there is A Literary Atlas 
and Gazetteer of the British 
Isles by Michael Hardwicke 
(David and Charles, 1873). 
which contains 4^500 entries in- 
cluding one on Rudyard Kipling 
(1865-1936), poet and novelist, 
who lived between 1896-97 at 
Maidencombe, an unspoilt vil- 
lage three miles from Torquay 
in Devon. He wrote some of his 
best stories here, included in 
The Bay's Work, IS98. The 
locals will tell you that he found 
Rock House, where he lived, 
rather dismal and depressing. 
The story goes that Kipling 
struck up a friendship with the 
little grand-daughter of the 
owner of nearby Langley 
Lodge, now called Langley 
Manor, and was given the free- 
dom of the two-acrc gardens.

y t^e and beauty 


CAN. IT really be 30 years since 
the Jaguar XJ6 burst on the 
motoring sce^e and became the 
sensation of the 1968 Motor 
Show? It sold at less than 
£1,S00 with a 2.8 litre engine 
-and manual transmission; even 
the 4.2 litre automatic was just 
under' £2,400. 

The motoring world has 
changed beyond recognition 
since then, but the Jaguar XJ 
hardly at all from the outside. 
The 2.3 engine was dropped five 
years ago. Some interior 
restyling has brought the 
Victorian sideboard-type facia 
into line with safety require- 
ments, though there is still 
enough .woodgrain to please 

Now there are only two six- 
cylinder Jaguar saloons, the 
XJ 3.4 and XJ 4.2. You can have 
them with manual gearbox plus 
overdrive working only on top 
gear, or automatic transmission, 
for the same price — £9.230 for 
the 3.4 litre, £9,753 for the 4.2, 
which comes complete with 
things like leather seats that 
the smailer-engined car lacks. 

How does this 10-year-old car 
measure up.- to its price-class 
rivals from overseas? Really, 
very well indeed. The ride 
quality Is still quite outstand- 
ing. You can pay .twice as much 
money for a car and still not be 
so effectively insulated from 
the road surface. ■ • •" 

The . ' Jaguar’s soft - all- 
independent suspension and 
Dunlop textfle-belfed 70 series 
radials were literally made For 
one another. Together, they 
smother the bumps and 'stifle 
road noise more effectively than 
any other car/tyre combination 



CHESS IS flourishing on 
Britain's offshore islands.' There 
are annual Jersey and Guernsey 
festivals, and now plans for an 
inter-island league played by 
telephone - and sponsored by 
Lloyds Bank. Anglesey, the Isles 
of Man and Wight, Orkney and 
Shetland, Guernsey and Jersey 
are all expected to take part, but 
the organisers would . like to 
contact a chess club in Canvey 
Island, Sheppey. the Scilly Isles 
or the Western Isles to make up 
an even number. . Any offers?. 

Jersey and Guernsey, who 
compete with a joint team in the 
biennial chess olympiad for the 
world championship would be 
favourites to win such a league. 
The latest Jersey congress, spon- 
sored by Lloyds Bank and. held 
in April this year, , attracted the 
usual strong -entry and was won. 
by David Parr, son of the London 
Stock Exchange’s best player. 

I can think of, bar two. Those 
are the Peugeot 604 on 
Michelins, and- the BMW 733 1 
on a set of Pirelli's miraculously 
good P8s T tried in Milan a week 
or two ago. The Pirellis are nut 
yet generally available for the 
BMW but are likely to be later 
in the year. • 

The quiet ride of the Jaguar 
is not quite matched by its 
mechanical refinement. Or 
perhaps it was the silent way it 
rolled over the road that made 
me more aware- than I might 
have been of a .-little gear noise 
and a soft groan from the 
overdrive. • . . 

If you push the engine up to 
■high speeds in the gears, it 
begins to souhfl - harsher than 
one expects of- a top executive 
car. But at a motorway cruise 
there is cause for 
complaint. The -gearshift is 
notehy and theV/clutch quite 
heavy, with a disagreeably long 
pedal movement BMW, even 
Datsun with their" . 280C, do 
things better. 1...TJW brakes, 
though, are splendid, 

And - the powfer steering, 
though fine for fwirling effort- 
lessly in and out. of parking 
bays, has too much, assistance 
and not enough feed for me. 

Inside, the Jaguar still con- 
veys a subtle, almost nostalgic, 
impression of quality that 
eludes some of its 'competitors. 
It feels somehow, heavier, and 
more solid. The windscreen is 
a bit shallow by today’s, stan- 
dards and I am not sure I likfid 
the black sun-visors *iet into \ 
pale roof • lining, Jhe velour' 
upholstery was nice to sit on 
during the recent/hot weather 
but the ventilation was poor.

15-21. sponsored by Hambros

nearly £ 1,000 . there are special

These island tournaments have

as cosmopolitan events suitable

Nigel Short's success in. Jersey 
— be lost only to Parr, the winner 
— shed some incidental light on 
an opening variation which has 
been previously discussed in’ this 
column and has provoked a good 
deal of argument among readers, 
some of whom question whether 
White’s two knights and a bishop 
can outweigh Black's queen and 
two pawns in a critical Ijngi. 

Unless you are prepared to have 
the noisy fan on full blast or to 
open a window, the XJ 3.4 gets 
unpleasantly stuffy in town. 

Air conditioning (not listed 
as a factory-fitted option on the 
3.4) is. of course, iJic answer. 
The £806 system available on 
the 4.2 is one of the best there 

Outwardly, the styling is no 
longer fashionable but the 
Jaguar still looks graceful and 
well-balanced, but the long. U*w 
tail means that the boot, with a 
fat tyre under the floor, is 

Petrol consumption con he 
surprisingly good. Driven gently 
on a run with overdrive used as 
much as possible, the Jaguar 
will approach 30 mpg and the 
official constant 75 mph con- 
sumption is 24.4 mpg. The 
automatic is 4 mpg thirstier 
except in town, when its 14.S 
mpg compares with the manual 
car’s 13.S. But my choice would 
always by the automatic. After 
all, if the firm will stand a near 
£10.000 car, an extra couple of 
pounds worth of petrol each 
week is neither here nor there. 

The big question mark that 
hangs over Jaguars is their re- 
liability. Many business 
motorists justify a switeh to 
imports by saying that, above 
all, they must have a completely 
dependable car. There is. I 
think, on element of defensive- 
ness here. A decision to pur- 
chase a dearer and outwardly 
less opulent import has to be 
explained away. 

But how reliable is the 
.average • Jaguar in a business 
user's hands? I shall be glad 
t\ report readers' experiences, 
good and bad alike. 

GOLF IS so much a mental game 
that the players are being con- 
ditioned by what they say, and 
this is translated into print 
before the event with ridiculous 
regularity. Before the 78th U.S. 
Open Championship began here 
at Cherry Hills Counry Club, 
most of the notable players said 
that Arnold Palmer’s winning 
score of 280, four under par, in 
I960, when be won his lone U.S. 
Open title on this golf course, 
would be devastated. Going into 
| today's second round, only four 
players have beaten par, and 
| the field is reeling, shell-shocked, 
| at the scores that have been 

I-Iale Irwin was bom less than 
50 miles from the golf course, 
knows exactly what is required 
at an altitude of over a mile 
above sea level — the ball flies an 
average 7 per cent further — to 
put together the exceptionally 
professional and workmanlike, 
round of 69. one would have ex- 
pected of him in any first round. 
The bespectacled U.S. Open 
Champion of 1974 is such a 
fierce competitor that no one 
counts him out of any major 
event. Yesterday he played 
conservatively and that was all 
that was required. 

Shortly after mid-day, he was 
able to say that bis score would 
hold up until the last players 
came in shortly before 9 o'clock. 

Irwin knows that when the 
temperature in these parts soars 
into the middle 90s. with almost 
no humidity, a gusty wind will 
break out in late afternoon. He 
was not disappointed. 

His round gave him a one- 
stroke lead over an 23-year-oJd 
amateur. Bob dampen, from 
Carmel, California, a freshman 
at Brigham Young University, 
who weighs only 10 stone, and 
touring professionals Andy 
North and J. C. Sneed, who are 
_at one under par 70. 

: Bobby Wadkins, the younger 
of the two brothers, scored a 
hole in one on the 20S-yards 
15th hole on his way to an even 
par round of 71 which was 
matched by the twice former 
winner of the U.S. PGA Cham- 
pionship. Dave Stockton, former 
Open champion. Billy Casper, 
Gary Player of S. Africa — 
seeking his second modern 
Grand Slam— A! Geiherger. Phil 
Hancock and Bill Brask. Peter 
Oosterhuis pulled his game 
together as he always seems to 
do for the bis occasion to be in 
a group of six players ot one 
over par 72 which also includes 
the winner of the last two 
tournaments. Andy Bean and 
the an re-post favourite, Lee 
Trevino, who was forced to play 
late in the day when the wind 
was at its freshest, swirling 
about among the trees, and the 

greens were baked to a crust 
and as fast as putting on a 
marble staircase. 

The 1975 Open champion, 
Jerry Pate and Jack Ntcklaus 
are among the group at 73, Tom 
Watson recovered after an out- 
ward half of 40 to be among 
those at 74, Spain's invitee, Servi 
Ballesteros, is among those on 
75. as is the Australian Graham 



Marsh, while the defending 
champion. Hubert Green, is 
alongside the great Palmer at 
76. These two are by no means 
out of things, since they are 
easily in the top half of the 
players that will be decimated 
when the axe falls this evning. 
and only 60 and ties will remain 
for the final rwo rounds. 

Among those who appear to 
have too much to do are Tam 
Weistopf (77). N. Crenshaw, 
Johnny Miller and Bob Shearer, 
who all scored 78. Australia's 
David Graham’s case appears to 
be hopeless at 79. 

The championship was 
remarkable for many things, 
apart from the high scores in 

weather conditions that were as 
perfect as anything I have ever 
sen. This lovely golf course 
was bathed in the most brilliant 
sunlight imaginable with the 
snow-capped peaks of the Rocky 
Mountains forming a glorious 

Palmer and Fid Seay had 
re-designed and lengthened the 
course since the former won in 
2960, Ralph Guldahl was the 
other winner of the U.S. Open 
at this club in 1938. Their 
alterations were not supposed 
to make any difference to Ihe 
skilled practitioners of the 
modem era. but the USGA 
have done a marvellous job 
in persuading the home club 
to fertiliser their rough 
to monstrous proportions — 
although totally fair and even 
— and the weather has done the 
rest in speeding up the greens. 

Most of these are tiny targets 
if aimed at from the narrowed 
fairways, and not even in range 
when the players catch the 
rough, as many of them did 
yesterday even with long irons 
from the tee. Most players 
only used the driver a handful 
of times. In' fact, Ballesteros 
used his five times and will 
choke down to three today — 
hating decided to use the club 
only at the three par 5’s. 

Irwin started by dropping a 

stroke to par at the 1st hole 
because at this stage he bad 
not got full control of the 
adrenalin flow. He hlr a four 
wood from the tee at this 
399-yards par 4 and came up 
short with his eight iron. 

Birdies at the 3rd, 6th and 
7th holes with . putts of 12. 
25 and 30-foot set him on his 
way, and he is such a marvellous 
competitor that thereafter he 
concentrated on guarding his 

He chipped within inches of 
the hole, having played his tee 
shot through the green at the 
229-yards eighth. He got up 
and down from in front of the 
green at the par 5 10th and 
from behind the putting surface 
at the 12th. 

The 550-yards 17th hole is a 
real eye-catcher in that the 
green is an island in the lake 
that runs all the way down the 
left-hand side of the ISth. 
Irwin drove 300 yards here and 
was forced to lay up short of 
the water with a wedge. He 
told me afterwards: “I had 240 
yards to go and could have 
reached the green with a three 
wood. But I felt it would have 
been a foolish gamble to go for 

This is why Irwin is in the 
driving seat as the second 
round starts today. 

Packer problems still with us 

soundly beaten in the first Test 
at Edgbaston. there were shouts 
from their disappointed spec-, 
lators of “ Bring back the 
Packer men." This was under- 
standable because they had seen 
their side outplayed in every; 
department by an England XL 
which apart from its seam bowl- 
ing and fielding, was far from 
outstanding. They knew that it 
would almost certainly have 
been a very different story if 
Majid Khan. Imrin Khan. 
Zaheer Abbas. As if Iqbal and 
Mushtaq Mohammed had been 
included, as this talented quin- 
tette knew our conditions. Imran 
is a world class all-rounder and 
Majid, and probably Zaheer, are 
world class batsmen. 

Incidentally, it would also 
have made for a more entertain- 
ing contest and their absence 
has devalued. If not debased, the 
whole series. , 

The chances are that unless 
rain comes to their aid, and 
already one day has been lost, 
Pakistan will go 2-0 down at 
Lords and their many followers 
living in this country will feel 

even more aggrieved. What 
most of them cannot understand 
is why Imran. Zaheer and Asif 
are allowed to do noble deeds 
for their adopted counties, but 
not for their country. They are 
not interested in the ICC, the 
TCCB, the Pakistan Board of- 
control. Kerry Packer, or cricket 
politics. All they want to see is 
their best team, which, on the 
fast tour, promised so much that 
it might by now have developed 
into the strongest in the world 
after the West Indies. 

England have also suffered 
losses to the Packer set-up. but 
these have largely been camou- 
flaged by the welcome presence 
of a number of exciting young 
prospects. Gower. Botham. Ed- 
monds. Miller and Gooch and the 
;jmb-standard opposition.

South opened the bidding 
with one heart. North replied 
with two . diamonds, and South 
rebid two hearts. When North 
said three diamonds. South 
attached some value to his 
Queen of that suit and jumped, 
perhaps, optimistically, to four 

Against four hearts West led 
the five of dubs, and the 
declarer won with dummy’s 
Ace. Now many declarers, as 
you. and I well know, would 
cash two high trumps, learn the 
bad nesws of the 4-1 split and 
then turn their attention to 
diamonds. If East happened to 
hold three diamonds, they would

World Series posed to interna-

counties and the game are so 
dependent. They knew, follow- 
ing the High Court judgment 
after the TCCB had made the 



mistake of going to law. that 
they had to employ their 
Packer players this summer. 
They therefore offered Derek 
Underwood. Asif Iqbal and Bob 
Wnolmer one year contracts — 
Warwicks did likewise with 
Denis Amiss— presumably with 
a view to dispensing with their 
services at the end of the 
season, as otherwise there was 
no point in stressing the length 
of the contract.

vinced that they had acted in

interest of the game, although 
they may have been impetuous. 

produced the expert technique

that a 4-1 split might cause 
insurmountable difficulties, he 
insured his contract by the 
simple expedient of ducking 
one round of trumps. The 
opponents could cash two spade 
tricks, but dummy would still 
have a trump to prevent the 
cashing of another.

However, unless all the other 
counties adopt the same 
approach, they could well be 
heading towards a major row 
with their members, which 
would include all the un- 
pleasantness. the bad publicity 
and the cost of a special general 
meeting, unless they change 
their policy at the end of the 

If I was a member of Kent, I 
would be saddened by the pros- 
pect of losing players of the 
quality of Underwood, Asif and 
Woolmer next year, not to men- 
tion Knott, who rather con- 
veniently decided to retire. 

They cannot be replaced over- 
night and therefore my team 
would be less attractive and suc- 
cessful, but I would probably be 
prepared to accept it, providing 
all Packer players were ex- 
cluded from domestic competi- 

What would upset most Kent 
supporters, and certainly all 
those, including committee men 
with whom I have already dis- 
cussed the matter, is, if next 
summer Kent minus their 
Packer contingent, were 
thrashed by a county who was 
still including their Packer stars 
and, to add insult to injury, had 
been strengthened still further’ 
by the acquisition of a Kent re- 
ject, say Derek Underwood! 

This situation, which could 
occur because some dubs are 
committed to the retention of 
their Packer men, would not 
only weaken Kent, and reduce

Apart from being a model pro- 
fessional, Derek Underwood has 
provided exceptional service for 
Kent and England over the 
years. Unlike many interna-

regarded county matches as un- 
fortunate chores to be taken for

West dealt with neither side 
vulnerable, and after two passes 
East tried with one heart My 
friend in the South seat hid 
two spades, most unorthodox, 
but the kind of bid his present 
partner would employ — he had 
decided to pay him out in his 
own coin. North now made the 
excellent response of three 
hearts, which put South on the 
spot He couJd think of nothing 
better than four hearts, and 
when North bid five spades, 
South carried on to six. 

The two of hearts, an obvious 
singleton, was taken by the 
Ace, and trumps were drawn in 
three rounds. There was only 
one hope — a red suit squeeze 
against East. For this to suc- 
ceed East must hold not only 
the diamond Ace but the Queen 
and Knave as well. 

Crossing to the club King, 
South led the diamond single- 
ton, and East won with the Ace. 
A dub was returned to the 
Queen, and the declarer led a 
spade to dummy's eight, and 
cashed the ten, discarding a 
heart from band. In' the four- 
card ending East had Queen, 
ten of hearts and Queen, Knave 
of diamonds. A club was led 
from the table to the declarer’s 
Ace, and East was squeezed. He 
let go the diamond Knave, 
South cashed his King, and the 
ten was his twelfth trick. North 
said archly: “You love that 
play, don’t you? But you could 
have ruffed the diamond on the 1 
table.” South had no adequate 
reply! I 

can be a very pofitable pastime 
besides being aesthetically 
satisfying. The value of many 
such items has kept pace with 
inflation over the past couple 
of decades. Anyone buying a 
picture or a rare piece of china 
has seen the value of this part 
of his assets maintain its value 
in real terms, the pleasure of 
owning the work of art being 
additional profit 
H it is a good investment for 
individuals in hedging against 
inflation, then it must be a good 



investment for pension funds. 
This is the line of argument 
taken by the trustees of British 
Rail’s pension funds. The in- 
vestment managers embarked 
on a programme of investing in 
works of art a few years ago, a 
move that has aroused con- 
siderable controversy both 
within and outside BR. Yet the 
publication this week of 1977 
report and accounts of the 
funds shows that the trustees 
are unrepentant. They invested 
a further £4.6m last year 
making a total of £I3-7m. 

But having taken this course 
of action, the funds are not 
rushing out and buying every 
item being offered to them, a 
feature usually attributable to 
the nouveau riche (and pension 
funds of Nationalised industries 
can be described as that). They 

money, between the glamour of 
the Tests. He has always loved 
playing for Kent and invariably 
given his best. He possesses a 
greater affection for his county 
than any imported mercenary, 
Barry Richards and Hampshire 
for example? 

Underwood's bowling could 
well prove largely responsible 
for Kent gaining further 
honours this summer. If the 
committee should then dispense 
wilh his services. while 
Gloucester, for example, retain 
both Procter and Zaheer, ii 
would be blatantly unfair, as il 
would mean that they were 
treating for the same offence the 
Englishman, by not re-engaginj 
him more harshly than a Soutt 
African and a Pakistani. He 
might well have a good case il 
he does well this summer o 
claiming wrongful dismissal 
under industrial law. 

This situation would hevei 
have occurred in the pas' 
because, apart from the Packei 
circus being an essential moderi 
concept the counties now seen 
less able to work in unison. 

Only this season there wa; 
the sad spectacle of two clubs 
Notts and Lancs, trying to bar 
Sussex from the championship 
In this atmosphere it is difficul 
to believe that there will bi

players. I suspect that this fad 
of harmony is to some exten

The investment manager

tion. But they have taken grea 
pains to ensure that the expei 
tise provided by Sotheby's doe 
not conflict with Sotheby's rol

can now justify employing

Mr. Christopher Lewio, th

that every purchase propose*

PICNICS can be hdk TPwl, much santiMoo many, flies, too 
much rajn, lQasy food,biting winds aadtobmany Other 
people — these are >Just;i some of the hazards, with which 
picnics cin "be beset On the. other hand when a ^ ■ e . s 
perfect, I can hardly think of a nker’happeninS Ul the 
whole social calendar.- We had one such perfect’ evening 
recently at- Gtyndeboorne when a combination of : ' 
exquisite weather, delicious food, marvellous " rouvie and 
old friends contrived to add up to one of. those golden 
days you remember for a long time, to.eonie. .! j . 

Looking at all 'the picnickers and the elegance with which 
they. had. spread their rugs; laid out their tablecloths 
add even set up their tables made me realise just how 

wen the British can do things when they really put 
their minds to it. Though it seemed to me that ours was 
quite the most perfect of all the picnics I could glimpse 
(Ptauns to start with, then, cold watercress soup served 
in French white bowls; saimon troot with sauce verte and 
salads, strawberries and great bowls of cream) there 
was none the less no; group visible that- hadn’t gone to- a 
great deal of trouble over food and drink. -All^ihtf.ciy from 
plastic sandwiches, and salads stained with be^troet. 

The equipment they ‘'all' owned, too, was. sudi ; that _ lead 
me to believe that picnicking must surely be' a large*" 
of the British way of Hfe than I had ever imagined. 

Nobody could, surely 'buy ail that just for one; 
or two outings a year ? ' 

The real essentials for a successful picnic seem T® 1)0 
a good collection oF eoblic bags — into these you can fit 
white wine, champagne If you’re lucky, bags of ice. and 
Freezella bags, - and the 'combined package should arrive well 
chilled on ;even the hottest of days. Pur friends bad _ 
bought a large and simple pieuic basket from '-Habitat apd 
this held all the glass, china and cutlery for out party of eight. 
The other essential is either Jots of small or one large 
vacuum-flask for providing hot coffee or. on colder days* 
hot soups.. Once you're organised for transporting these 
essentials -you can -then decide which of the, extras 
. are Important to you.. I have an aversion to plastic plates 
and mugs myself and feel that the touch of glass and 
china adds a great deal to the. event; howevpr, if..^here is 
much carrying to be done or far to 
walk then- plastic is certainly much lighter. . 

Though elegant picnics, like those at Glyndebonrne, -Ascot 
and the like, are not the stuff of everyday life, I think 
it’s worth taking trouble to do them well — the pleasure of 
the event extends way beyond the hours of Its duration, 
and lingers in the memory for years. 

For this week I’ve gathered together just some of the P r °P s 
that will come to your aid if you. too. want to plan . 
an event of this kind. Nobody will want all of .tbttn; but 
a few of them will certainly go some way to providing 
the, right backdrop to a “ plush picnic.” 1 


IF TOtJ aren’t catering for 
large. numbers but would like a 
pretty vacuum flask that will 
keep' liquid hot or cold Jacksons 
of Piccadilly has a very pretty 
selection. The . one sketched 
here has a black background 
and is decorated with sprays of 
pink Bowers and green leaves 
but there is a tomato red 
version with white and yellow 
flowers or white with sprays of 
orange and vellow flowers. The 
flasks all . hold one litre of 
liquid. £11.90 <p & p 86p): 

j For large picnics, iclicrc won bore 

numbers to look a/ter. ibis large ululated 
flask will hold 7.2 litres oj liquid— either 
hot or cold, depending upon the any. Much 
the most efficient way of transporting 
drinks, it is simple to use providing rnc 
instructions are followed, ft has a handle 
for easy carrying and inside Hie beaker- 
style top is a container bolding disposable 
beakers, so you won’t need to carry cups 
separately. Made in Italy, it costs £15.9o 
from HeaTs, of 196 Tottenham Court Road. 
London W 1, who will post it Jor £1.09 extra. 



HAMPERS is a relatively new 
set-up but it seems to me a good 
one. The idea behind it is that 
people going to the major out- 
door events in the summer 
calendar— Glyndebourne, Bad- 
minton, Chelsea Flower Show, 
Epsom, Ascot. Newbury, the 
Polesden Lacey Open Air 
Theatre and so on — may order 
a hamper, filled according to 
their tastes and purse, and then 
collect It on the day at the rite 
of the event 

The food offered is on the 
whole the sort of simple food 
that best suits outdoor eating- 
cold meats or salmon, crab or 
lobster, if in season, salads, 
cheeses, desserts of fresh fruit 
or gateaux, as well as cham- 
pagne, wines or lager and soft 
drinks. Prices do not seem to 
me excessive for the service 
offered and Hampers aim to add 
all the little -things that are 
needed on a picnic— rolls and 

butter, salt/and pepper, salad 
dressing, sauces, finger cloths, 
corkscrews and even 1 toothpicks. 

You can choose/ a meal as 
simple or as luxurious as you 
like and know that you can just 
turn up on the day and find 
the whole thing" ready to collect 
and enjoy. / 

The pick-up points at each 
site are very clearly shown on

HERE is a splendid 
from that old friend 
readers— Peter Knight nf Bca- 
consfield and Esher. It is a 
proper coffee maker that makes 
fresh, hot coffee and can be 
used by just plugging the con- 
nection into a I2-vo!t cigar 
lighter — this means it can be 
used in a car. boat or caravan. It 
takes about 10 to 15 minutes for 
the coffee to be made and 
though it doesn’t make a great 
deal at a time (500 centilitres, 
enough for two largish cups) its 
great advantage it that it is real. 
The ground coffee should be put 
into a little strainer at the top 
of the flask, the water goes into 
the main body and the coffee is 
made by the percolating 
method. £5.95 tp + p 75p>. 

Pick your own 

THERE'S something rather 
nice about the idea of picking 
one’s own strawberries, broad 
beans, apples or whatever. 
Gentle, rustic visions of country 
baskets overflowing with the 
healthy produce of the land 
come to. mind. For those with 
freezers it a wonderfully 
economical way of filling it to 
provide memories of summer 
in the winter months. For those 
without freezers it is a good 
way of finding fruits for jams 
and preserving. 

However, some of the prob- 
lems have always been knowing 
exactly which farms allow you 
to pick your own, when which 
crops are at their best and at 
what time the picking is 
allowed. Home and Freezer 
Digest (which is, incidentally 
an excellent magazine for 
freezer owners) has provided 
a marvellous service .in its 

latest edition (the July issue) 
hy listing farms all over the 
cMimtiy where you can “pick 
your own." 

They are listed by county 
with full addresses given and, 
wherever possible, telephone 
numbers so that you can check 
ihe state of the crop you’ve got 
your eye on. 

Symbols have been used to 
indicate whether the farm grows 
berries, fruits from trees like 

apples, plums or pears, leaf 

vegetables or root vegetables. 

The pullout in this month's 
Home and Freezer Digest runs 
to 16 pages but already it 

seems such a success and such 
a good idea that a book is being 
planned. . Besides the pullout 
section there are some very 

good recipes for freezing the 
summer berries— all in a11 
excellent value at 20p per copy.

ANOTHER OF those ideas so 
good that one wonders why 
nobody ever thought of it before 
— a service to help working 
mothers share a nanny. When 
my children were young enough 
to need constant care nannies 
of the good, old-fashioned sort 
were quite astonishingly badly- 
paid, I still blush when 1 
recall the salaries. Nowadays, 
however, as anybody who has 
recently tried lo hire one will 
know, they come very expen- 
sive— thev need a private life 
like everybody else, they need 
to eat anil be clothed and have 
the odd outing, too. _ 

However, money is not the 
only disadvantage; lack of 

privacy is another. Sharing a 
nanny between families could 
be a very good solution. The 
nanny can be paid a very good 
salary, enough for her to pay 
for her own living accommoda- 
tion, if she is employed by 
more than one family. At the 
same time the children get the 
company of other children and 
the security of a familiar, daily 
figure to care for them. 

At the moment the service is 
only offered in the London area. 
Anybody who thinks that shar- 
ing a' nanny could he what they 
need should contact the Share- 
a-Nanny department of The 
Nanny Service, Oldbury Place, 
London; W1M 3AJ. Tel. 01-935 

Make it 


IF YOU want something 
inexpensive and up-to-the- 
minute to cheer up your holiday 
wardrobe then for a small 
outlay and up to 10 hours of 
vour time you could have 
cither of the two garments 
photographed here. The patterns 
have been devised to use ICFs 
new handknitting yarns that 
contain Bri-Nylon. As you can 
see the patterns, available free 
Financial Times readers, 
enable you to make either a 
long, stinky vest-like dress (very 
fashionable on summer beaches) 
or, by stopping the pattern 
half-way. a suntop. 

The dress would take the 
average crochet-worker about 
10 hours to make, the sun-top 
would take about four hours. 
Hayfield Beaulon Crepe 4-piy ' 
yam is the one for which the : 
pattern has been designed and 
the yam comes in a good range 
of lovely, sunshiney, summer 
colours. A 25-gram ball costs 
25p and this means t'ne dress 
would cost about £5.25 in the 
smallest size (32 ins) or £6.00 
in the largest size (36 ins). The 
sun lop. similarly, would be 
either £2.00 or £2.5U.

Caliban. a radio critic manque*, 
name to mind as i listened to 
some recent experiments in the 
field oF radio drama. “The isle Is 
full of noises. Sometimes a 
thousand twangling instruments 
Will hum about mine ears; and 
.sometimes voices. That if I then 
had waked after long sleep, will 
make me sleep again . . . ” 
Myself. I did in fact stay awake 
through “the first play without 
words to be written for radio," 
The Revenge by Andrew Sachs 
(Radio 3. June It. and through 
S.O.S. by Barry Bermange, “a 
development of his earlier work 
in the field of audio-collage” 
(Radio 3. June 13). but I 
wondered how the lisrener fared 
who bad just switched on for 

The Revenge took up a chal- 
lense thrown down by Tom 
Stoppard. He thought it ought to 
be possible to write -a radio play 
with no dialogue m it whatso- 
ever. a bazarre gambit coming 
from one whose own plays are 
dialogue or they are nothing. 
Anyway. Andrew Sachs twhen he 


is not indulging in radiophontc 
experiment he plays Manuel in 
Fmclty Tracers i has proved that 
the feat of look-no-dialogue ! is 
indeed possible, but what he has 
not so far demonstrated is why 
anyone should want to perform 
it. let alone listen to it. The title 
said it all: vengeance was 
wreaked by u man on the run; 
we had to deduce the plot from 
the various noises he made and 
those made by his pursuers and 
victim, a symphony of aggression 
and terror including heaving 
breathing, muffled cries, window- 
breaking. drowning, police-sirens 
wailing, footsteps echoing across 
asohait, and So >jo. 

But apajr from the fun of 
working it all out. I do not see 
that anything much was gained 
by the speechless purity of the 
piece. I suspect that its main 
justification will come later as a 
teaching exercise. Occasionally 
the radio drama department 
organises seminars for writers 
who have had one or two radio 
plays done and wish to extend 
their techniques. I can imagine 
The Revenge gradually acquiring 
textbook status at these gather- 
ings. A wordless sequence or 
two may be an effective method 
within a radio play of creating a 
violent climax, particularly in a 
thriller, but to have such a 
sequence bumped out to last 30 
minutes is rather like a jazz LP 
that is exclusively drum solo; a 
tour de force that becomes a 
forced tour. 

If The Revenge eliminated 
dialogue. Barry Bermange's 
S.O.S. eliminated plot. It con- 
sisted of people, either individu- 
ally or in chorus, and in a 

variety of tones ranging from 
cold neutrality to. sheer panic, 
enunciating phrases taken Trom 
The international Code of 
Signals for the use of all Nations 
(1874). Instead of plot, which 
implies development and resolu- 
tion. we bad a simple static 
situation, represented by a cry 
for help that never, comes, a 
vain attempt to communicate in 
the face if imminent danger, the 
basic situation of a great many 
modern plays. It is one to which 
one cannot help responding and 
I found these phrases more 
rewarding to listen to than the 
sound effects in The fleoenfle. 
Bare statements and questions 
grew poignant “Six metres 
water in hold • • - Hello . . . Who 
is that? . . . Water-logged . . 
Can you hear me? . . . Can you 
see me? . . . Are you there? . . . 
Abandoning ■ - Go ahead , . . 
Wreck Is burning . . . Help us . . ” 
Zn a sequence like that we have 
the basics of drama without the 1 
superstructure. How many full - 1 
length plays van you think of 
that are summed up in the 
following? “Excuse unable to 
comply . . . Cannot stop, no time 
. . . Excuse pressing commitments 
of our own . . - Save us . . - We 
are dying. Cases of fever, 
dysentry, cholera, small-pox . . . 
When will you? . - . When the 
moon rises ... Do you require 
assistance? . ■ . State require- 
ments clearly . . . Act as judg- 
ment directs . . . Depend on own 
resources . . Mr. Bermange 
himself directed the H voices, 
male and female, used contra- 
puntally'jn the programme, and 
David Greenwood was in- charge 
of the special. sound work. 

Many creative writers- are all 
at sea when it comes to stringing 
ideas together and the distress 
signals they emit in radio Inter- 
views are often painfully wishy- 
washy if not downright in- 
coherent Not so the novelist 
Laurens van der Post, who was 
talking to Derek Parker for 
half-an-hour in An Individual 
Self (Radio 4. June 12). He spoke 
with eloquent conviction of his 
faith in individual man even 
against the unreined might of 
collective man in Africa today 
and . of how the faith was a 
source of strength in a Japanese 
prisoner of war camp where he 
lived for a number of years 
under the ever-present threat of 
death, where he and his com- 
panions had to depend wholly 
on own resources. It was a 
heartening signal of radio's 
maturity to give this interview 
prime time on Radio 4. 

Matisse, whose work, with 
Picasso's was greeted with 
hilarity when shown in London 
just after the last war, is now 
generally acknowledged as one of 
the greatest, perhaps even the 
very best of artists of this 
century. Exactly in what his 
greatness consists is still a matter 
for debate: less of a painter in 
the purest sense than Bonnard, 
more consciously a decorator, 
more equable and far less 
prodigiously various than Picasso 
(though like him essentially 
graphic In his work, a graphic 
colourist), he it was, neverthe- 
less. who set the path that so 
many others were to follow, and 
follow stilL His assertion of the 
fundamental flatness of . the 
painted surface, by no means his 
own discovery, was early, com- 


fl-Sldv- May 



prehensive and direct: and from 
there he went on to conjure space 
and form out of pure colour. His 
work was ever intuitive, 
hedonistic, inherently seductive 
and un theoretical. 

His great period came compara- 
tively early in his long career, the 
dozen nr so years before 1918: 
hut such art-historical considera- 
tions in no way disqualify or 
demean his later work: if influ- 
ence and importance were the 
only criteria, our galleries would 
be markedly shorter on master- 

This small loan exhibition at 
Marlborough (June-July) indeed 
covers only the later period, the 
earliest pictures dating from 
1917, the last from 1948. Those 
small early works already mark 
the shift away from the tough, 
ambitious paintings of the war 
years towards tbe bourgeois 
idylls of the twenties, and a

Henri Matisse: Meditation after the bath 

return for a while to a more 
painterly modelling of flesh and 
form. Two notable paintings 
here, both from 1920, confirm 
the trend, the “Meditation after 
the Bath,” with its exquisitely 
simple. Manet-like figure, espe- 
cially beautiful in that softly lit 

even perfunctory at limes, the 
paint so much thinner, the 
image suggested as much as 

The gentle touch persists in all 
these paintings, even into the 
somewhat larger red interiors 
with figures of the early fortltv. 
that hark back so clearly to such 
works as the great Red Studio 
of ,30 years and more before: 
but now the handling is looser. 

These are important works 
after all. simply because they 
are, for the most part, so fine in 
themselves, and Marlborough is 
ro be congratulated, and 
thanked, for bringing them 
together for us to see. A small 
show at Lumley Cazalet (also 
until the end of Julyi of draw- 
ings, prints and illustrated 
hooks by ?4afisse. makes a 
valuable ‘pair to this excellent 

With Rostropovich as one of 
the artistic directors of the 
I Aldebursh Festival we may rea- 
! sonably hope for a thorough 
journey through the sides of 
Russian music of which we nor- 
mally hear too little. An example 
of what can be done was Thurs- 
day’s recital, at which the fam- 
ous cellist was heard as piainst 
accompanying his wife. Galina 
Vishnevskaya in a programme 
of mainly unfamiliar bat also 
mainly excellent songs by 
Rimsky-Korsakov, Glinka and 

An occasional song of Rimsky's 
turns up now and then, but to 
have a whole half of a recital 
devoted to them was a bonus. 
One can see why they aren't 
more often heard. The vocal line 
is paramount. The piano parts, 
though subsidiary, are not un- 
interesting. as “The faded flow- 
er" showed, nor unadventurous 
as the almost Straussian effusion 
of “ The lark exalts” and ‘‘The 
clouds part " proved, while The 
nymph ” has unexpected, sub- 
aqueous glints in the harmony. 
But of the close welding and 
interweaving of voice and piano 
as we know ir from. say. Schu- 
mann or Wolf, there is little. 

One result is that The songs 
need singing of a kind not 
always within reach of good and 
thoughtful “interpreters” oF 
Lieder. The melodic tines with 
their long, beautifully shaped 
phrases call for fine tone, an 
even compass and strong longs. 
This does not mean that the

graduates from the northern 
club circuit did not greatly im- 
press me in their first pro- 
gramme. but they start a new 
BBC 1 light entertainment 
series tonight, Lennie and Jerry, 
and perhaps these will be better. 

At 9.35 I shall be -unable to 
resist the excitement of Conteh’s 
challenge for the world light 
heavyweight title on BBC 1 
despite rational objections to 

.Those preferring the true 
story of a suicide pact between 
a teenage girl and a drug 

addicted alcoholic atheist prince 
suffering from VD should in- 
stead watch m^s South Bank 
Show. Since the story is told as 
a ballet, “Mayerling,” it's all 
quite OK, . .

Bob Dylan in action at Earls Court' 

Ant doubts that Boh Dylan Is 
the most impressive composer 
and performer produced by rock 
music . were dispelled at Earls 
Court on Thursday niaht when 
he started a week of concerts, his 
first in London for almost a 
decade. It wasn't all plain sail- 
ing. At the . start, new material, 
an unsettled hand, and the uwful- 
ness of the arena, with people 
milling around as freely as on 
the concourse of Waterloo Sta- 
tion. made the day-long queues 
for tickets and their inflated 
Black Market prices seem like 
bad jokes. 

But then suddenly he is singing 
Lifts a Rolling Stone, spitting out 
the hypnotic lyrics and pulling 
the band together with mounting 
tension. By the end the audience 
is on its feet relieved to, know 
that Dylan can still express all. 



the passions of' a generation 
through the universal art form 
of the generation, rock music. 
From then on Dylan was mag- 
netic. displaying a charisma that 
is quite unexpected.. It is easy 
to see what all the fuss is about,

The first Dylan concert was a

THE IDEA of something which ? 
is produced simply in order to - 
be collected, and is advertised, 
with slogans like “the heir- , 
looms of tomorrow” always ; 
seem slightly, slightly suspect. ! 
! The vast and growing army of : 
Royal Doulton figures is per- 
! haps tiie honourable exception, ■ 
on account of its sheer staying 
powers — there has been a regu- • 
lar production since 1913 — and 
the unsclfconscious way in 
which they scent to follow a 
centuries' old tradition of Staf- 
fordshire pottery image making. 

Their collectability — particu- 
larly for the kind of collector 

I who prefers to see his horizons 
dearly drawn by a catalogue — 
is now enhanced by the appear- 
ance of the massive Royal Dinil-

Tinworth worked at Doultons’ 
original Lambeth factory. The 
20th-century tradition helong 
■? more to the Burslem branch. 
!■ opened just over a century ago 
* Tor the manufacture of fine 
■* earthenware. In 1889. while 
■ 9 Tinworth was still at work in 
!i London. Charles .1. Noke. who 
■* had been trained as a modeller 
7 at the Worcester Porcelain fac- 
", tor>’. joined Burslem as chief 

designer. Noke. who remained 
chief designer into the 1920s, 
created a few sculptural pottery 
figures in the '90s. but it was 
not until 19U9 that he persuaded 
Doultons tn let him commission 
a group of sculptors to design 
figure models. 

The fir«t Royal Doulton 
figures ot the series which still 
continues today were finally put 
on the market in 1913. In some 
respects these early works have 
never been bettered. Phoebe 
Stabler and Charles Vyse, estab- 
lished arti.'T? who had exhibited 
at .the Royal Academy, seeemd 
instantly to understand the 
needs of ceramic sculpture and 
their figure? have a broad, 
strong. inunumeiital quality 
which few -ub-'equent Doulton 
artists have recaptured. 

In the earliest model in the 
catalogue. Vy>e established the 
particular vein of sentimentality 
that been Doulton s tradi- 
tion and success. It was a tiny 
thumb-sucking child in a 
nightie, which is known to this 
day (a reduced version is -'till 
in production) as “Darling.” on 
account of Queen Mary’s 
delighted expression when she 
picked it up at an exhibition. 
Figure No. 9 was the first of 
the hundreds of different crino- 

v, 1853 - !*7s 

line ladies which have con-j 
linued to be best sellers. ! 

It is too easy to be snoobisn . 
about the easy nostalgia and j 
sugary sentiment of Doulton ( 
figures— ffie balloon sellers and- 
Dickens characters, the 
Gladyses and Priscillas and 
Celias and Pennies and LorcStas 
and Sandras (the names have 
changed with fashion), the 
“Miss Demur es" and "Secret 
Thoughts.** For over 60 years [ 
they have responded to a 
ket, sensitively reflecting the , 

tastes of their clientele rather , 
than trying to influence it. Just 
as the humble Victorian Staf- 
fordshire figures — derided and 
scorned in the early years of I 
the century — accurately , 
reflected the tastes and senti- 
ments of the Victorian working - 
class, Doulton figures intimate | 
the social and sentimental 
values of a (surprisingly un- 
changing) 20th century middle 
class taste. 

The crinoline ladies subtly ! 
combine . with their nostalgia, i 
echoes of the contemporary 
look of women and their clothes. 
Modes and styles are picked up j 
: — if perhaps a little late: the i 
, influence oE Bakst and the , 
Russian ballet, of the Japanese ;

i when quite erotic bathing belles 
and nudes made their appear- 
t ance. (One particularly daring 
1 one appears in an alternative 
t form with a stoutly painted-on 
» bathing dress). 

I Doulton had its higher artistic 
e aspirations: in the J930s Richard 
i- Garba RA produced a number 
j of limited editions. His “West 
Li Wind" and “Beethoven” are 
p particularly vigorous and lively 
d sculptures albeit in a style that 
I. already seemed to belong to 
y three decades before: but they 
a were exceptions: and what the 

public really wanted was what 
e Doulton gave and continues to 
e give it.

A aroup of Chinese overlay plnss snujff bellies. 

Suit’, June 19. 

ISth centurv China saw the popularisation of taking snuff 
as a Social convention. The Chinese, unable to pinch snuff 
with ion" fingernails, earned it in small hollies with a 
spoon attached to Che stopper, developed from medicine 
bottles Chinese snuff bottles share with jade carvina iho 
pleasing combination of visual and tactile quality. Snuff 
bottles were carved from a wide variety of materials, 
including hardstones. glass and organic substances, and 
the collector may display many interesting example* of this 
miniature art form within a single cabinet. As object* 
which were in continual use, they become for the imagin- 
ative collector a link with the manners or mid to late 
Ch'ing society. 

The Harry Ross Collection, which will be sold at Christies's 
on Monday, June 19th. contains many fine and several 
outstanding snuff bottles; examples of the latter being a 
rare lavender jade oviform bottle, an emerald green jade 
rectangular bottle and a Peking enamel disc-shaped bottle 
decorated with European figures.

Its basic supply of crude oil 
— a supply which was radic- 
ally reduced by the nationali- 
sation of its Middle Eastern 
oil reserves. 

The two main thrusts here 
were the exploitation of 
Alaskan oil through BP'S 
gradual takeover of Standard 
Oil of Ohio and its huge 
investment in the North Sea. 

Yesterday’s deals stress the 
end of the pipe-line that leads 
to the consumer. Large 
though the total sum is, it is 
no more than a gesture in 
this direction. Spending 
£4 00 m will only Increase BP’s 
planned capital expenditure 
this year by about one third. 
Zt compares with the £1.5bn 
that BP will spend over a 
period of years on the Magnus 

cent of BFs crude oil pro- 

BFs German subsidiary 
has been making a loss chiefly 
because it has excess refining 
capacity and no access to 
subsidised cheap German 
crude oil. BP and Veba, Ger- 
many’s biggest energy com- 
pany. found themselves 
together in this predicament 
and worked out the Gel sen- 
berg deal as a result It will 
bring BP 7.5m tonnes of oil 
sales to the consumer but 
only half as mneh refining 
capacity. It will boost BFs 
share of the German oil 
market from 1LS to 16 per 
cent The big attraction for 
Veba is a guaranteed supply 
of BP crude from the Middle

Letters to the Editor 

Exchange rates 

I- 1 uni Mr. Mulcolm Samuel 

Sii. — Your weekly “ Economic 
\ i- ’.puini ' is usually the alarm 
duck ihai opens my eyes oil 
i m. ..-da: min rungs. The latest 
arli.-le. June 15. is no exception, 
l W'iuli.1 like to make some com- 
.iieiu.i on exchange rale changes. 

The tendency For ihe ratio of 
value added tu materials and 
loci cools in manufacturin'; to 
"o cimriant over time is familiar 

10 siudenls of Censuses of Pro- 
diictii>n. The tendency for wages 
and salaries to represent a con- 
stant proportion of value added 
;.s wcil-established. Such 
lendencies would appear to form 
pari of the “ laws of production " 
in capitalist sureties. Although 
inure dinicull lo demonstrate, it 
seems that these “laws” would 
••normally” yield constant 
profit margins and constant 
ret urns un capital in manufac- 
turing industry. Tbe habits of 
our parliamentary rcpre.senla- 

• iv vs. however, have produced 
mutations in the system — devia- 
tions from " normality " in 
recent years being reflected, 
inter alia, ki wide differences 
be; ween ” current "" and ■* his- 
lio-ic " costs or in the deprecia- 
tion ofsicilinu in nominal terras. 

Tbe suggestion that like pro- 
■Jucis arc sold/ purchased at a 
common price level in inter- 
lutiunal markets is a refreshing 
reminder that purchasers lend 
to behave rationally. As such. 

11 is hardly surprising that 
nominal changes In exchange 
ra**s and m ihe price of manu- 
factured goods have roughly off- 
set each other. 

With a currency depreciating 
in nominal terms, ihe cash cost 
of materials and fuel inputs 
tends to rise in relation lo value, 
added in manufacturing indus- 
try. Balance sheet values 

• mainly -.tucks) arc inflated and 
“cash" profits fall. In terms 
of total “ cash ’’ costs incurred by 
manufacturers. Lhe labour cost 
Hemenl is likely to fall. Are we 
guilty, therefore, of partial 
thinking when we isolate the 
labour cost • nmponvni in seeking 
tu show advantages from cur- 
rency depreciation, or vice 
versa ? 

Profitability in trading activi- 
ties may very well be restored 
tu previous ie\eU as a result oE 

currency depreciation, but such 
“gains” may be more than off- 
set by “losses" in domestic 
operations. The relative stock 
market rating of export indus- 
tries would seem to suggest that 
su phis tea ted investors may also 
have douhts about the total 
costs/beneflts oE currency depre- 
ciation in practice.

Working father 

From Sir. M. C. P. Hetoitt 
Sir, — Mrs. Jacqueline Riley's 
letter in today’s euition (June i4) 
raises an interesting point for 
working mothers. 1 might add 
that as a working father i have a 
similar problem which 1 have 
solved not by employing people 
myself but by entrusting my 
children to an organisation which 
specialises in such matters. 1 
have also to pay this organisation 
out of income taxed at the 
highest marginal rate and the 
employees of the organisation are 
also taxed and pay National 
Insurance contributions. 

i have every sympathy with 
Mrs. Hi ley. or nearly every, 
because 1 still do my own house- 
work and gardening, if she finds 
a solution 1 would be grateful 
fur information so that l can try 
and reduce the burden on me of 
the organisation which looks 
after my children, a school.

would account for not more than 
3.5 per cent of the market. 

Wnea comparing prices, one 
should compare like with like. 
Uver 50 per u.'nt oF tyres 
imported from nast Germany 
are crossply tyres, whereas ihe 
national average runs at around 
three radial tyres for every 
crossply tyre soid. Crossply tyres 
retail at approximately half the 
price of radial tyres and are no 
longer produced i>y many Euro- 
pean manufacturers. Radial 
tyres imported trom Eastern 
Europe are only marginally 
cheaper than the lower priced 
“ Second line ” UK brands, whicb 
they have to be, to account for 
their limited range of sizes and 
somewhat oid fashioned tread 

If Comecon tyres have any 
effect at all on the tyre market, 
it is as a competitor to remoulds 
offering a far more reliable pro- 
duct to the “poorer" motorist 
hard pressed by rising costs of 
fuel, maintenance and spare

Sir. — Having a sunny roof

1 thought you might be in- 
terested to know of yet another, 
and as yet uopatented, use to

Financial Times can be put to 
solve the great problem of week- 
end evaporation of moisture 
from gro-bags. The technique is 
as follows. 

From Mr. Colin WiUsher. 

Sir. — 1 fear that Mr. J. L. 
McKcown (letters June 14 » has 
correctly identified himself as a 
“linguistic paraplegic." 

This is, alas, clearly shown by 
his misuse of the word “verbal." 
It does not relate specifically to 
the spoken word, but it is clear 
also from the letter from Mr. 
Clifford Jackson in the same 
issue, lhat “ verbal *' is commonly 
used when in fact “oral"* is 
meant. “Verbal" means “in 
words.' 1 which can be written or

being eroded, albeit in Lite nicest 
sort of accent!

And so on 

Sir,— Stuart Marshal] article 
(June 13) brings an element of 
lucid sanity to the somewhat 
hysterical reports recently pub- 
lished about tyre imports, par- 
ticularly from Eastern Europe. 
Some additional information 
wuuld. however be useful, as 
well as the correction of obvious 

imports are currently running 
at a total of 3m units on esti- 
mated sales of 31.5m units or. 
14 per cent not 33-34 per cent 
as stated. Of these. 700.000 come 
from Comecon countries, which 

Spread the FT out on the floor 
so that the two middle pages are

double spread four to six inches 
sideways, roll up and staple into 
a six-foot tube. Soak in water 
for ten minutes and then place 
one end of tbe tube in a bucket 
oE water placed two feet above 
the gro-bag. Bury the other end 
in the soil of tbe gro-bag and, 
hey presto, the amazing absorp- 
tive and yet non-soggy qualities 
of the FT combined with the 
scientific principle of a svphon 
creates a seif-watering gro-bag. 

Fruin Mr. D. R. Hall 
Sir, — 1 was most interested to 
read Mr. Duncan Neil Dewar's 
letter (June 12; on the absence 
of verbal commas and full stops 
in conversation. Personally. 1 
don’t object tuo much to" the 
“you know" he refers to but I 
would appreciate hearing of 
other readers' observations' on 
hte quite hideous tendency of 
many people intervieweed on 
the TV .ty go on and on just 
connecting each sentence up with 
"and!” This kind of verbal 
behaviour usually comes from so- 
called “trendy" personalities. I 
suspect its origins in American 

From Mr. Frank Walkley 
Sir, — Noting in today's issue 
(June 15; an article contributed 
by David Freud on the subject 
of same-day settlement for 
cheques, I hope that debts paid 
into the County Courts can be 
dealt with in this manner. My 
company obtained a judgment 
for an amount somewhat in 
excess of £L,600 which was paid 
into Huddersfield County Court 
on May 31, so 1 was informed. 
At the time of writing we still 
have not received payment from 
the court and am advised by tele- 
phone today that “two working 
weeks " are necessary under tbe 
present system before the 
cheque is posted to us. which is 
promised for June 21. The 
original cheque from the 
defendant will thus have been 
in their hands for 22 days. At 
current overdraft rates one 
wonders what the overall loss to 
industry may he on the total 
amount held up at any given

From, llte Cfiainnan. 

British Legal Association. 

Sir, — Mr. A. D. Roper’s point 
about consumer protection (June 
Si is a valid one. 

The sacred principle which has 
set Mr. Reynolds- Whatiisname 
(who tilts not at windmills but 
at the marble halls of the Law 
Society) galloping from one 
court lo another is, as I under- 

stand, it, that one should be free 
to do any work one chooses irres- 
pective of whether one has the 
qualification which Parliament 
by Jaw demands for the doing of 
that class of work. A natural 
extension of that principle 
would be to say that, a fortiori, 
no academic institution should 
be able to require particular 
qualifications lor tbose who 
aspire to teach therein. I have 
not heard the views of Mr. 
Reynolds-Whatsisname, a poly- 
technic lecturer in law, on that- 

My friendly local postman is 
something of a sorting office 
lawyer and after a ’ disastrous 
attempt to represent another of 
his ilk before an . industrial 
tribunal he decided that he was 
better suited to the calmer 
waters of academic life. He is 
frustrated in that ambition by 
the requirement of every poly- 
technic / college / university to 
which be has applied for a teach- 
ing post, that he should show 
evidence of having the particu- 
lar qualifications they demand 
before he is allowed' to teach. 
He has tried enlisting the sup- 
port of Mr. Reynolds-Whatsis- 
name. but as he ruefuiy says, 
"you know what the post is 
like these days." 

Yet another of my friends, the 
refuse collector, who 'is old 
fashioned enough to prefer the 
style of dustman, put himself up 
for election to a fellowship at 
Oxford University. He is tak- 
ing up. with his union, the 
matter of the curt refusal. He 
now plans to apply for the post 
of Visiting Professor of Rubbish 
at Cambridge. 

Many of our lowly clerks 
think that the Royal Commis- 
sion on Legal Services wilt usher 
in the new dawn when, over- 
night they become the Sir 
Hartley Shawcrosses of this 
world, carrying all before them. 
My own ambition is to practise 
as a veterinary surgeon. Will 
Mr. Francis Reynolds-Wbatsis- 
name let me have a go at his 
cat? Perhaps he would prefer 
that I qualify as a veterinary 
surgeon. In that event why does 
he not qualify as a solicitor and- 
stop boring us all?

reduced profit margins 

THIS WEEK, Gartmore Fund 
Managers turned a ay from the 
current vogue of North America 
and returned to that old standby 
the high income funds. Over the 
past few years these funds have 
provided the bread and butter 
business for the unit trust move- 
ment while other funds have 
occupied tils limelight for a few 
months and then returned to 
obscurity. The managers launched 
the Gartmore Extra Income Units 
to put alongside the High income 

The investment objective of 
this new fund is high income 
with maximum growth potential, 
m the portfolio will be almost 
entirely high yielding UK equities. 
The fund yields 9J per cent grosi 
—a full i of a percentage point 
higher than the High Income 
Fund, despite the latter’s prefer- 
ence share content 

The growth of the High Income^ 
Fund nowr at £15m. is inhibiting 
the managers ability to deal in 
small lines. . of stock thereby 
keeping up the yield. Thus in 
launching this new fund, the man- 
agers arc deliberately restricting 
the number of units issued so 

that they have a small fund which 
can maintain flexibility. For inves- 
tors seeking quarterly income the 
managers have designed a Quart- 
erly Income Plan with Investment 
being made in both the Extra 
Income and High Inconi* Funds. 

Schlesinger Trust Managers, the 
Tyndall Group and Lawson Secur- 
ities have also abandoned, at least 
temporarily, the overseas markets 
for the UK and are. offering iheir 
highly successful high income 
funds. The Schlesinger Extra In- 
come Trust also' aims for. maxi- 
mum growth by investing solely 
in equities and has a yield of 9.5 
per cent, gross. Tyndali is offer- 
ing the London .Wall Extra In- 
come Growth Units,*' yielding al- 
most ‘10 per cent: the '■portfolio 
having only a small portion of 
fixed interest stocks. The Lawson 
High Yield Fund, in contrast has 
40 per cent, of its portfolio in 
preference shares and,- offers a 
yield o£ 11 per cent, bttt diluted 
income growth prospects.- 

Save and Prosper is still stick- 
ing to its United States Growth 
Fund and despite the setback this 
week still holds to the firm belief 
that the scope for capital growth 

in this market is substantial iu 
the medium term. Crescent Unit 
Trust managers have turned to 
the Far East and arc launching 
a new fund, the Crescent Tokyo 
Fund. This aims at capital growth 
by investing in Japanese blue 
chips— wilh a yield of 0.5 per 
cem it couid noi be aiming for 
anything else. The fund Is man- 
aged by Edinburgh Fund Man- 
agers who have £ 20 m of funds 
invoked in Japan including the 
hichly successful Crescent Japan 
Investment Trust. 

On a different tack altogether. 
It is drawing the attention of 
i he self-employed lo its new Per- 
sonal Pension Plan which offers 
a choice of guaranteed and unit- 
linked. It is also giving details 
of frs Index Linker Bonds which 
enable investors to put aside a 
lump sum Tor imestmenr inio the 
SAVE index linked contract 

Finally, for those investors who 
prefer the security and guaran- 
tees offered by building societies 
and with-profit life assurance, the 
Britannia Building Society is 
drawing attention to its recent 
•.launch The Britannia “Double 
investment '* Plan. 

■ Estimated Current 
Gross Yield (15.6.78)- 

Capital Growth of income units 
since. launch in February 1970 

9.99% 616% 

London Wall Extra Income Growth Units offer you a . 
high income from an investment in carefully chosen high 
yielding equities with a small proportion of fixed interest 

The aim is to produce not. only a high income but an 
increasing income over the years coup/ed with capital 

growth- And this has certainly been achieved since 

February 1976 when the trust was launched . New 
investors in this unit trust get an estimated gross 
commencing yield of 9.99%. In addition since the 
launch, the offer price of the units has risen by no Jess 
than 6 1.6% compared with a rise of 17.4% in the rl 
■ Industrial Ordinary Index over the same period.. 

Investors have therefore fared much better than they 
would have done in any fixed interest investment. 

London Wall Extra Income Growth Trust is a unit : 
trust in the Tyndall Group which currently manages 
over £200 million on behalf of k>me 80,000 investors. 
You can invest in this trust for as little as £500. 

Remember that the price of units arid the income 

from them can go down as well as up. 

You should regard your investment as long term.

ments and lax there was, 
however, a recovery from a 
C34.H7 loss to a £20,062 surplus in 
Chile. , 

. In November, the direclors 
warned that because of diERcuItiei 
and delays in applying tariff 
increases, it appeared certain that 
after charging depreciation and 
monetary correction a greater 
loss would be incurred^ on the 
company's operations in Chile 
during , the year than in 1976.

Raeburn Inv. 


After a tax of £0.35m. against 
CO. 38m, Raeburn Investment 
Trust maintained available net 
revenue for the half-year to May 
31, 1978. at 1512,005 compared with 
£504,103. Gross revenue was 
marginally up from £l.l*fro to 

Including a dollar premium or 
£fi.56m i£G.Glm) the market value 
of investments at midway 
amounted to £51. nm (£44.S5m) for 
net asset value per 25p share to 
reach 1760p: a 9.7 per cent 
increase on November 30, 19<<. 
and 104 per cent on May 31 of 
that year. Fully diluted the value 
would have been. I75.Sp— up 9.6 
per cent and 10 per cent 
respectively. . ...... 

The net interim dividend Is 
raised to l25p (l.lp) costing 
£331,394 (£2809611. Last year’s 
final of 2.6p was paid from avail- 
able net revenue of El.lliB. 

Expenses for ihe first half took 
£62,353 (£62.15S) and interest 

£130.476 (£147.8451. and preference 
dividend absorbed £38,008 (same). 

Following the High Street 
“ price -war " which severely hit 
1977-78 margins and profits of 
Bishop's Stores. Mr. John H. Brad- 
field. the chairman, says in his 
annual statement that it now 
seems unlikely Lhal food retailing 
and wholesaling will return to the 
percentage margin levels of 
earlier years and with this in mind 
each of the group's companies is 
planning accordingly. 

In the shorrer term, the direc- 
tors are concentrating on cost 
reduction and sales drives, while 
in the longer term, they aim to 
main ownership of the eroup's 
major premises to avoid the 
devastating rent reviews brought 
about by inflation and demand.^he 

The group is developing a 
proportion of branches on its own 
account to avoid third-party 
profits and the “ expensive 
dreams" of developers* archi- 
tects. although initially it may be 
faced with hfph interest charges, 
states Mr. BradfieJd. 

As repv-ted on June 10. laxabie 
profits slumped from £2.1m to 
£0.8m for the year to February 
25. 1978. on sMe<! of £11 l.Sm. 
against £100.61m. In addition to 
the ” price war," which adversely 
affected each of the group’s 
trading companies either directlv 
or indirectly, the group was faced 
with a number of unexpected 
costs, the chairman points out 

The reduced profit from the 
group's wholesale company was 
caused by the necessity to wori* 

on lower margins and the need 
lo provide £ for had debts. 
The director* * policy on margins, 
was designed io help the VG and 
Centra retailers lu cope with effn- 
petition anti as d result sales in- 
creased by neariy 20 -per cent; JlLc- 
Bradfield says. - * * - r 

The directors arc confident that 
the progressive independent re- 
tailer has a sound future aod in- 
tend to sunnort i his aspect of the 
grnap's business in full. 

The pan of the group’s business 
most seriously affected by the 
“price v.rir" was it? retail com- 
pany which trade? mainly in the 
highly sensitive hnme counties 
area. The pricy rutting exercise 
in which it took part reduced 
margins without a corresponding 
increase in sales. 

As a result of the declining 
profitability in the latter part of 
the year, a wage cost redaction 
exercise was put in hand and also 
an ' extensive advertising cam- 
paign - costing some £350.000 was 
launched in an endeavour- to 
stimulate sales. The results from 
the* efforts are beginning to 
aha#, the chairman adds. 

Three closures of smaller 
branches became necessary, creat- 
ing terminal losses, and only one 
of several nSw supermarkets in 
the process of development was 
opened . during the year but fol- 
lowing a successful trial the com- 
pany has i opened five Bishop’s 
Bakehouses. This relatively low 
volume but high margin activity 
will contribute to profits in the 

current year, members are told. 

The chairman adds that a lower 
contribution to profits by the 
group's cash and carry subsidiary 
is understandable In the circum- 
stances prevailing, but is open to 
improvement in the future.

£40.000 to £301.000 at midway,

over of £3.2Sm against £4.55m. 

At the interim stage, the direc- 
tors said buoyant trading 
conditions were expected to con- 
tinue in the second half and this 
should yield increased profits.

are that it will be successful, 
they now report.

Reporting Improvement in profit 
from a depressed £65.000 to 
£90.000 for the half year to 
March 31, 1978, the directors of 
Henry Norrington and Sons say 
they expect profit at full time to 
be about £150.000. 

Sales, particularly of mach- 

inery have been less buoyant, and 
in the first halt reached £7.4 in

IN THE second half of the year 
to March 31. 1978. Crosby Spring 
Interiors improved pre-tax proiils 
from £37ti.SS4 to £497,774 and. 
despite disappointments in some 
areas of its merchanting opera- 
tions. a record £7!2.09n, against 
£589,482. was achieved for the full 

Turnover which rose by only 
4 per cent to £7.5ni was adversely 
affected by a substantial fail in 
the sale of beddinsr unit? caused 
by a fire ui Doric Unit Company

have another intriguing after- 
noons sport in prospect today, 
for the Trafalgar House Group — 
the only British-based company 
Lo sponsor an entire programme 
—has contributed to all six races 
at Sandown. 

Here, as might be expected, 
the feature event is the li-mile

John Dunlop, at present head- 
ing the trainer’s table ahead of 
Peter Walwyn and responsible

to see her justify considerable 
hopes with a clear-cut win over 
another lightly-raced sore 
Effulgence, whose trainer. Ryan; 
Price, took this prize two seasons 1 
ago through Marquis de Sade. 

Turning to York, where tt is 
the Tlmeform Charity Day for 
cancer rlief. Ajuda Palace 
strikes me as a sound bet to 
lift the Vernons Fillies' Plate. 

This stable companion to 
Shooting Season, who took the 
same prize a year ago for Henry 
Cecil and Joe Mercer, struck 
me as a smart performer in the 
making when running well in a 
Maiden event in Sandown in 

She has since disappointed in 
the Pretty Polly Stakes at New- 
market. but I shall be disap- 
pointed if she cannot cope with 
her weak opposition. 

Later in the afternoon, it could 
well be a case of John Dunlop 
again. Overtrick seems leniently- 
treated with T st 11 lb in the 
William Hill Trophy, in which 
Lester Piggott's mount Negative 
Response cannot be overlooked.

Strong grounds exist for think-

they all have to beat. She is on 
the upgrade and carries just

beaten off. Falls of Lora had not 
previously been seen in public

her final two-year-old appearance. 

Falls of Lora is now fast im- 
proving and is sure to take a 
good deal of beating. I hope

SIEMENS AG plans investments 
totalling DM 1.5bn in this 
financial year ending September 
against DM 1.2bn in 1976-77. The 
company will take up before the 
end of the year an option on 
another 30 per cent of the capital 
of Siemens Allis Inc. of the U.S., 
following which the capital will 
be split equally between Siemens 
and Allis Chalmers. The impact 
of D-Mark appreciation on 
Siemens profits this year could 
emerge at around DM I50m.

investments, the Durban-bused 
holding company for various tex- 
tile and sugar interests, show 
Increased group profit after .tax, 
with a rise from R15.4m to 
R 17.2m ($19-Sm) and a one cent 
improvement tn the dividend to 
27e. The shares, at 230c. yield 
11.7 per cent and. unlike the 
majority of large industrial 
groups, stand ut the same price 
us a year ago. 

C. G. Smith Investments draws 
its income from Romatex, 55 per 
cent owned, which is *<ne of the 
largest diversified textile groups 
locally, and from two sugar com- 
panies, C. G Smith Sugar and 
Huletls, which together account 
for about 70 per cent of South 
African sugar output. C. G. 
Smith Sugar, which now com- 
prises lllovo Sugar Estates, the 
former subsidiary of Tate and 
Lyle, maintained its dividend 
last year, while Huletls reduced 
its dividend. C. G. Smith Invest- 
ments bolds a third of C. G. 
Smith Sugar and. through various 
intermediate companies, receives 
an effective third of Huletts’ 
dividend payments. 

Results published by C. G. 
Smith and Co. the unlisted top 
company of the group, with 66 
per cent of C. G. Smith Invest- 
ments. showed an increase from 
R0.6ra to R 11.5m ( 513.2m J in oct 
attributable profit. The Board 
says (hat although ibe sole of 
its stake in Stranger Pulp and 
Paper /the venture with Reed 
International ) is “still condi- 
tional.” the investment has been 
written off against the surplus on 
revaluation of other investments 
and a provision made for the 
balance due in terms of the 
agreement. Sharehulders will be 
informed when the agreement is 

It wu* announced in late April 
that C. G. Smith and Co. was to 
sell its 50 per rent of the 
Stanger venture in Reed fur Rl. 
and would in addition pay Reed 
R16m in cash the price of 
disengagement. The U76m plant, 
largely financed bv loans and 
guarantees, has made substantial 
losses in the past, but was 
recently reported i«i be breaking 
even. It is nui jei known why

Rhone-Poulenc moves out of the red 


RHONE-POULEN‘c. France’s lead- 
ing chemical group, claims that 
the return to a small consolidated 
profit after two years of heavy- 
losses shows that its recovery 
programme is beginning to bite. 

In 1977 the group recorded a 
FFr 84 m (.<lS.3m } consolidated 
profit on a turnover of FFr 23.6bn 
($ 5 ;Ibni after accounting for 
some FFr 25$ni o£ extraordinary 
gains and for the commitment of 
stupe FFr 325rn towards the re- 
argppfcation of its heavily loss- 
making textile operations in 

In the group bad lost 

FFr MIm after seeing its turn- 
over- slip from FFr 2&35bn to 
FFr I7.85bn while ib - 1976 losses 
totalled FFr 364m bn sales of 
FFY 21.74hn. 

The group's two main activities 
are chemical and artificial fibres, 
and the clothing industry is its 

largest client, accounting for 
some 23 per cent of sales. After 
a series of heavy losses in textiles, 
the group unveiled at the end of 
last year a drastic reorganisation 
plan worked out by 33. Jean 
Gandots who had been brought 
into the group from the steel 
industry and is the heir apparent 
to the present chairman, M. 
Kenaud GilleL 

This depended on concern 
traiinc; on two main lines of 
product — polyester and nylon— 
at only three sites in France, 
while earmarking other sites for 
industrial- reconversion, and per- 
mitting the continuation of 
products outside this range only 
on the basis of their being profit- 
able, and without guarantee of 

The textile sector bad a 
FFr 707m operating loss last 
year which it sot round by dis- 
posing of some FFr 215m of 

chemical assets to other divisions 
in the group and the abandon- 
ment of credits of some 
FFr 494m. 

Losses in the sector are now 
some FFr 20m a month less than 
they were six months ago 
according to M. Gandois. 

The bright spot last year was 
the 13,8 per cent gain in the 
health and plant welfare sectors 
(to account for some 23 per cent 
of sales), hut whereas fine 
chemicals had a relatively bright 
year, the petrochemical and 
polymer sectors were consis- 
tently depressed — so that 
chemicals as a whole stood 
relatively still accounting for 
some 42.3 per cent of turnover. 

The other main areas of 
activity are films (some 5.2 per 
cent of sales) and the Brazilian 
operation, which are bracketed 
together aDd which generated 
10.7 per cent of turnover. 

PARIS, June 16. 

So far this year, sales are run- 
ning 7 per cent ahead of last 
vear. but the group will say no 
more than that this pattern will 
continue until the holidays. Nor 
will it hazard a translation of 
this into terms of likely profits. 

Investments of FFr 2.46bn last 
year were financed without re- 
course to additional indebted- 
ness. although the need for work- 
ing capital meant that there was 
an across-the-board increase in

CQMMOMTIES/Review of the. week 

Smelter closure boosts tin 


TIN PRICES* reached, their 
highest levelsjincc December on 
ihe London Metal Exchange this 
week. Standard grade cash tin 
climbed to 76.90S a tonne at one 
stage before falling back on 
profit-taking — last night to £6,765 
a tonne — up £50 bn the week: . 

The marker was: boosted by 
news that an industrial dispute 
had closed the Capper Pass 
smelter at HulL- 
Capper Pass', ; a subsidiary - of 
the Rio Tinto * Zinc group, 
warned when declaring force 
majeure on contracted deliveries 
with immediate effect, that the 
cutback in supplies would last at 
least a month because of the 
difficulties involved in restarting 
furnaces once they were closed 
down. . ; 

Although Capper Pass is not a 
big producer in world terms, 
producing about 15,000 tonnes a 
year, of the world’s 200.000 tonne 
annual output, it is an important 
source of supplies to Europe, 
where there is a scarcity at 
present of immediately Available 
tin. - . 

-' It was reported yesterday that 
the International Tin Connell s 
economic price review panel had 
failed at a meeting in. Bangkok 
to agree 'oti -a- T recommendation 
for an increase in the ** floor ’’ 
and “ceiling” price range of- 
tbe International Tin Agreement. 

It seems likely, however, that 
the Tin Council riril) bow ar its 
meeting next month to pressure 
from the producing countries for 
an increase in the price .range, 
The rise in tin pnees was 
muted by the depressed state of 
other base metal . markets 
especially copper! ' - . 

Profit-taking sales, after the 



cacofl iu 

Dec Jan Veb Mar Apr May .JaaJ 

recent surge in prices which 
fol lowedi tbe invasion of Zaire’s 
Shaba province, continued to hit 
the copper market. Further 
downward pressure was exerted 
by tbe decision of Asarco, one 
of the leading U.S. producers, to 
cut its 7 domestic copper price- by 
2 cents to 65 cents a pound. less 
than three weeks after it- had 
raised the price. . . 

- Tbe cut was quickly followed 
by other North American, pro- 
ducers and was taken as confir- 
mation that consumer demand 
for copper remains sluggish, in 
spite of reports of some buying 
by. the Chinese.- ' 

Copper cash wirebars \ held 
steady yesterday to close at 
£712.25 a tonne, £37.50 down- on 
the week. . , . ■ , 

World sugar fell to its lowest 
price level for three months, 
mainly. as a result of the exten- 
sion of the ratification period for 
the International Sugar Agree- 
ment and a recommendation by 
the International Sugar Council 
that the introduction of Its con- 
tribution system for the estab- 

lishment of a reserve stock fund 
should be postponed. 

The London daily raws price 
ended the week £5 lower at £97 
a tonne. 

Doubts about tbe agreement 
may cause some small producers 
to become aggressive sellers of 
physical sugar for fear of having 
to sell at lower prices later, some 
London dealers said. . .. 

The pact has been operating 
provisionally since the beginning 
of this year, but it still needs 
ratification from several mem- 
bers — including the U.S. — io 
become fully operative 
' London coffee futures prices 
fell back as excitement over the 
recent series of Brazilian frost 
scares died down. Weather in 
the main coffee-producing areas 
was much warmer throughout 
the week and thU encouraged 
many speculators to take their 
profits. - 

The September price fell to 
£1,659 a tonne at one time 
before closing at £1,687.5 a tonne 
yesterday-down £99 on tbe 

The cocoa market continued 
very quiet, with the September 
futures quotation closing £24.75 
up on balance at £1,661.75. 

In the absence of any signfi- 
cant fundamental news, much 
attention has been focused .on 
the prospects for the negotia- 
tion of a • new Internationa] 
Cocoa Agreement when the cur- 
rent pact runs out in September 

The consensus at an ad hoc 
committee meeting held in 
London this week appears to have 
been that the pact should be 
renegotiated rather than ex-

between » per cent and 10 per 
cent for secured call loans at the 
end of (he day. 

The market wad faced with a 
shcht net take up or Treasury 
bills and an increase in the note 
circulation. This was in addition 
to the exceptionally large loans 
made to (he market on Thursday 
which had to he repaid. 

On the other hand. Government 
disbursements exceeded revenue 
transfers to the Exchequer and 
banks brouahi forward balances 
above tarset. In the interbank 
market, overnight loans opened at 
lli-lll per cent and lirmed to 
12-12! per cent before easin'; to 
llj-12 per cent and this level 
sit* a greater part of the day's 
busines.t. However. rates 
fluctuated before closing balances 
were taken at S-fl per cent. 

At the weekly Treasury bill 
tender, the average rate of 
discount fell (I.29U5 per cent lo 
ii.HMS per cent. The minimum 
accepted bid was IHT.Tlj com- 
pared with £«7.ii5 last week and 
bids at that level were met as 
in about 20 per cent. The SMOm 
bills tendered and allotted 
attracted bids of £SS6.42m and all 
hid' offered were allotted. Nest 
week fiiui'ni will be on offer. 

Trading in yesterday's foreign 
exchanec market remained 
extremely quiet ahead of the 
weekend. Sterling showed little 
change and traded asainst the 
U.S. dollar within a very narrow 
range of Sl.82S5-I.So20. The open- 
ing level was SlJS2a5-l.Sdfl5 and 
the little business that did occur 
was around (he sl-fthfO level. The 
pound finished at $1.8305-1.8315. a 
rise or just 3 points. On Bank 
of England figures, the pound's 
trade weighted index remained 
at -61.3 havinc shown a shsht 
improtement durins the tnormnq 
to 81.4.- 

Thc U.S. dollar star led the thy 
on a firmer note mainly reflect ms 
the fall in Japan's trade surplus 
lor May. There appeared to be 
little reaction to the rise in U.S. 
prime rales, this bavin*: been 
largely discounted in the market. 
So with the opening of New York 
markets, the dollar appeared to 
suffer from a certain amount nr 
over reaction and ended at its 
weakest level against mn.-t cur- 
rencies. Trading was aMin very 
quiet and thp dollar fell to 
SwFr 1.8925 from Aw Fr 1.9025 in 
terms- of the Swiss franc, while 
the West German mark also 
improved to DM 2.0935 from 
DM 2.0950. The Japanese yen 

finished at Y”1S against Y218.25 
previously, bavin;. 1 been down to 
Y217! at nil* point. 

In fairly active trading Gold 
impro«ed an ounce to 

SlS-ll-lS-ii after opening at 
SI S3!- 1 84*. The Krugerrand’s 
premium over its sold content 
widened to 4.1 u per cent in inter- 
national de.ilina.-: 3nd narrowed 
to 3.04 per cent domestically from 
last Friday’s common close of 
3.37 per cent.

From a.m. wo business days earlier. 

.Situation .'•locks claimed mo.iL or 
the atiemiim in equity markets 
yesterday. Nevertheless, the In- 
dustrial leaders edited higher and 
selective support was attain forth- 
• cominj for secondary issues. 

Although there Mils little in 
lltc way of background news to 
aid sentiment, the underlying tone 
was probably helped by the sharp 
increase in industrial nutpui dur- 
ing May and hy the slight la Lest 
slowdown in the UK rale of in- 
flation. Trading conditions were 
? little uncertain at the start, 
hut sellers held otf and the lead- 
ers gradually adzed higher on a 
modest demand. Business virtu- 
ally came 10 a standstill during 
I tie afternoon and the FT 30- 
-hare index, which touched its 
best of the day at noon, held at 
that level until the late dealings. 
Then came back a penny 
.ir so in places and the index 
cloved a net 1.4 higher at 470.6. 

British Funds continued to 
trade quietly. Short-dated stocks 
flue mated within fairly narrow 
limits before ending with losses 
ranging from to !. Applica- 
tion.- f or the new tap in this sec- 
tor were allotted in full. Among 
the longer maiurilies, interest 
was sl ,r *wn in ihe new long tap. 
Exchequer 13 per cent. 2H13-*17, 
(£15 paid > when first-time deal- 
ings commenced yesterday: after 
opening at par. die price eased 
to 14?? before settling at 14 1. 1 . 

Among th“ outstanding move- 
ments in the equity sector. Pilk- 
inglun Bros, jumped I»7p to 520 p 
in response m extremely '-'ond 
results and proposed one-For-one 
scrip issue, but Guinness con- 
trasted with a fall of 10 to 170p. 
after JMp. on unexpectedly poor 
half-yearly profits. 

I merest faded in Thursday's 
newcomer. South Tyneside 12}

price held at 10}. a premium, or 
J on the level at which the stock

stock, to he iv-ued at I9S’.. Agri- 
cultural Mortgage Variable 108:1 
made a quiet debut at 100,'* com- 
pared with the issue price of £10(1. 

Late book-squaring operations 
cauved a recovery in the invest- 
ment currency premium which, 
after trading easier at around 
1121 to 112} per cent for much 
of The day. closed fractionally 
higher on balance at 1 131 per 
cent. The unexpected recovery 
in Chilean operations brought 
rises of 1 1 points in both Anto- 
fagasta Bail way ordinary, at 1201. 
and Preference, at £.141. Yester- 
day's SE conversion factor was 

lir.ltfi.-, 1 0.66661. 

An uninspiring week in the 
Traded Option market came to a 
quiet close- Only 277 contracts 
vi ere done yesterday compared 
with ihe previous day's total of 

Banks mixed 

Slightly firmer at first, the 
major clearing banks drifted 
Iqwer laic to close mixed. Nat- 
West ended shade dearer at 
2«Sp but Barclays closed S lower 
a! 32.ip. after 330p. Merchant 
Banks were inclined harder in 
place-' and Hill Samuel put on 2 
to Slip. Among firm Hire Pur- 
chases. F. C. Finance. 63p. and 
Llovds and Scottish, J12p. rose 3 
apiece, white UDT hardened a 
penny to ::9p. 

interest in Breweries centred 
largely on Guinness which closed 
10 off at !70p. after 164p. follow- 
ing inter tin figures substantially 
below market expectations. 

A firmer irend developed in 
Buildings, but the improvements 
were generally small. Blue Circle 
gained a couple of pence at 242p. 
but Tunnel R ended modestly 
lower at 2'WP awaiting next 
Thursday’s results. Contracting

picked up in later dealings to 
finish at ihe overnight level of 
3SSp. Despite news that union 
officials are to discuss ihe implica- 
tions of a takeover by Tcnneco 
next week. Albright and Wilson 
held a modest improvement at 
170p. Horace Cory put on 21 to 
23 p in a thin market and country 
demand prompted a similar rise 
in James Halstead, at 23{p. 

to harden 3 to 254p . GEC edged 
forward a penny to 2fi2p helped 
by the planned link-up with the 
American concern Fairchild, while 
continuing speculative interest 
lifted Electmcoiuponents 5 fur- 
ther to 430p. Thorn Electrical 
were also better at 33Sp, up 4, 
following Press comment on its 
involvement In the television

secondary Engineerings. A bear

to tloip in IMI, while buying in a 

Hotels and.. Caterers, Grand 
Metropolitan edged forward li to 
109 p.

Preliminary profits way above 
expectations and the proposed 100 
per cent scrip-issue prompted a 
jump of 37 to a MTS peak or 520P 
in PiikiDglon and also helped other 
miscellaneous Industrial leaders 
rally from a dull start. AleUil Box 
closed 8 higher at 3t4p on invest- 
ment demand and Boots were 3 to 

earnings, but other Motors and 
Distributors were generally better 
where changed. Heron revived 
with a rise of 64 to 137Jp, while 
renewed demand lifted Dowty 4 
io 211 p and Flight Refuelling 3 
to 142 o. Dutton-Forshaw mirrored 
the chairman's optimistic view on 
prospects with a gain of 2 to 4S4p.

draw r buyers and the close was 4 
easier at 862 p. Shell were simi- 
larly cheaper at 540p. Elsewhere, 
renewed speculative support, after 
recent easiness, lifted Siemens 
(U-K.) 22 to 352p. 

James Finlay figures promi- 
nently in Overseas Traders, rising

publicity given to a brokers

tion of the interim results, while 
small selling clipped 5 from

fund for Investment Trust Cor- 
poration; the last-named eased

Saturday June 17 1978 


. The Spanish, name for 


arclays trust deal 
prompts probe 


RADICAL innovation is not 
normally expected in Britain's 
Slate-owned industries, least of 
all from a chief executive who 
has spent half a century in the 
same business and has only a 
year to 30 before retirement. 

Vet last Wednesday Mr. Ross 
Stuinton. chief executive and 
deputy chairman of British 
Airways, with nearly 45 jears in 
the airline business, blew the 
corporate whistle for a new. 
a L-ro« th e-board era of low price 

In so doing, the likeable Mr. 
Stainton has pre-empted all other 
major airlines in setting the 
parameters few will be able to 
escape from when the low price 
era really gets airborne early 
next year. 

That the others will take off 
and follow Mr. Siam ton's care- 
fully planned course for future 
survival is beyond doubt. There 
may be variations on the Stain- 
ton theme of three distinct 
classes of airline passenger: first 
club nr economy and discount, 
but the changes in the mix of 
passengers since the start of 
t ran*' -Allan tic jet travel leave 
no room for airlines that du nut 
react rapidly. 

In the 1950s. 30-41) per cent of 
all Atlantic air travel was done 
by businessmen. This fell by 
halF in the early 1960s, when the 

INSTITUTIONAL opposition to 

Barclays Bank's planned £92.6ra 
takeuver of the Investment Trust 
Corporation resulted yesterday 
in the launching of a special in- 
vestigation by the Investment 
Protection Committee or the 
National Association of Pension 

Barwlays Merchant Bank, 
advising its Parent on the invest- 
ment trust deal, is “ puzzled " by 
the call for uu investigation. 

The move raises a question 
over the bank's claim that its 
institutional shareholders are 
content with its proposals, 
announced earlier this week, for 
a share acquisition of the trust 
and an immediate resale for 
£S5m cash to the Post Office 
Pension Fund. 

Mr. Georg 1 ? Dennis of the Post 

Office fund, who declined to dis- 
cuss the matter yesterday, is the 
current chairman of the Pension 
Funds' Investment Protection 

Mr. Graham Tilford of the 
British Petroleum fund has been 
appointed to chair the investiga- 

The National Coal Board's pen- 
sion fund is among the Barclays' 
shareholders unhappy about the 
investment trust deal. 


The fund is concerned that 
it is ITC rather than Barclays' 
shareholders who benefit from 
the three-way deal. 

It feels that the £85m cash 
injection might have been 
achieved more equitably by a 
direct call on the bank's share- 

Barclays believes that most of 
its institutional shareholders are 
satisfied with the proposals. It 
argues that the stability of the 
bank's share price after the an* 
nouncement and the ease with 
which the new shares were 
underwritten confirm the weight 
of City backing. 

The Bunk expects that details 
of the deal will be circulated to 
lTC’s shareholders nest Tuesday, 
and to- its own . 150,000 share- 
holders by the end of the week. 

Solid opposition to the move 
may be voiced at the extraordi- 
nary general meeting which the 
Bank has decided to convene, 
although its Articles of Associa- 
tion and the Stock "Exchange 's 
rules do not call for a share- 
holders' vote on a takeover of 
this kind. 

Cabinet decision allows 
foreign banks into Spain 


THE SPANISH Cabinet to-day 
approved a long-awaited decree 
authorising the establishment of 
foreign hanks in the country. 

The terms arc deliberately 
restrictive and. of more than 60 
foreign banks that have expressed 
interest in establishing them- 
selves in Spain, no more than 15 
are expected to accept the condi- 
tions initially. 

Two of these are likely to be 
British — Barclays and National 
Westminster Lloyds is already 
represented through its Bank of 
London and South America sub- 
sidiary, Bo Isa 

The authorities have been 
studying the decree for several 
months, while proposals (or 
admitting foreign banks have 
been in the air for more than 
two years 

The go-ahead marks an impor- 
tant stage in the liberalisation of 
the banking system, which, since 
last July, lias slowly been seek- 

ing to align itself more with the 
rest of Europe. 

Conservative elements within 
the banking system, who still 
hold significant weight fought 
a strong rear-guard action to 
limit the impact of the presence 
of foreign banks. 

This has helped to delay the 
decree and has been a prime 
reason behind the restrictive 
nature of the operational con- 

The decree stipulates that 
foreign banks may opt for a re- 
presentative office (already per- 
mitted), the establishment of a 
Spanish-registered subsidiary, or 
branch operations. 

For subsidiaries, foreign banks 
will have to pay Pta 1.5bn 
(flOm) to cover capital and re- 
serve requirements. 

Branches will have to pay

ing a subsidiary has been geared 
to be equal to the minimum re- 
quirement for the formation of 
a new Spanish bank. 

Foreign banks opting for 
either subsidiaries or branch 
operations (limited to a total or 
three) will be allowed to buy 
pesetas freely on the inter-bank 

But their peseta activity will 
be restricted to 40 per cent of 
the combined value of local 
loans, securities and the share of 
deposits they are obliged to place 
with the Bank of Spain. 

However, the limitation is pro- 
bably notional because of the 
difficulty foreign banks will have 
in attracting substantial deposits.

4 4 nears in the industry. 

15-20 per cent of seals taken by 
first class passengers had fallen 
to 10 per cent. Now only 5 per 
cent of all air passengers travel 
first class. 

The business sector has 
become seriously diluted by pas- 
sengers like the lady in 
Australia who said she would 
travel to London on a kitchen 
chair if she saved $100. 

Other factors have contributed 
to British Airways' decision. Air- 1 
lines across the Atlantic have fori 
many years been barely covering I 
their cosls. Many flights have I 
been possible only through sub- ! 
sidie.s from other routes. This! 
constant drain is no longer; 
acceptable. Mr. Staintnn has 
recognised, with the help of a 
strong team and u much-boosted 
morale in the former British 
European Airways and ROAM 
operations of BA. that each fare 
class must now pay its way on 
nil routes. The structure he now 
envisages should do this. F.ut 
the important proviso is that 

business passengers who want to 
he certain of getting their scats, 
must now pay for the privilege. 

All these radical changes have 
been steered by Mr. Stainton 
through an airline where fare 
structures, up tn now, have been 
hardly distinguishable from any 
orber airline: such has been the 
power of JATA. 

Mr. Stain ion started his career 
with Imperial Airways in 1933. 
but in this case long service does 
not appear to have had con- 
servatism. The tensions and 
excitements of airline operation, 
he says, rule out any tendency 
to personal inertia. He took on his 
present job as chief executive 
ar.d deputy chairman at thp end 
of last year after the decision 
when BA chairman Sir Frank 
McFadzean decided after a heart 
attack to resume his duties only 
part time. The new responxibill- 
lie 1 -; pushed Ross Stainton into 
what he describes os “high 

His training for this went back 
in Imperial Airways, operating 
in first days as a traffic trainee 
at Croydon Airport. “Nobody has. 
ever had a more commercially i 
aggressive policy than the staff of 
Imperial." he said. Airline 
economies, ho added, were all a 
question or minimising waste and 
immediately passing the benefit 
to the customer. 

"Whether his opposite numbers 
at the Forthcoming LATA con- 
ference in Montreal agree re- 
mains to be seen. But they should 
take heed from Mr. Stain ton’s 
approach to these meetings. At 
an lATA meeting in Bermuda 11 
years ago, scheduled to start at 
9.00 a.hi.. Ross Stainton took 
what he describes as his “medi- 
cine." -a round of golf. It was 
hardly light when he went on 
the course at 5.50 a.m. On the 
third hole. “I was so sleepv 1 
kept my head down and took a 
swing at the ball." It was 
obviously an approach to the 
game that worked. He sunk the 
ball in a single shot. Hmv many 
airlines will follow his “head’s 
down" approach to airline 
economics we will know bv

pay offer 

By Pauline Clark 

tricians in up to 100 hospitals 
throughout the country from 
Monday was postponed last night 
after a new pay offer from the 
Government was accepted as 
“a basis for negotiation." 

The executive council of the 
Electrical and Plumbing Trades 
Union, representing about 5.500 
electricians in the Health Service 
wtii decide on Monday whether 
to call of us well a proposed pro- 
gramme of other industrial 
action, including overtime bans, 
in hospitals. 

After a day of urgent talks 
ending with a two-hour meeting 
last night between Mr. Albert 
Booth, Secretary for Employ- 
ment: Mr. David Ennals, Secre- 
tary - for Social Services; and Mr. 
Peter Adams, the union's 
national officer for the Health 
Service, the electricians were 
offered a productivity plan 
designed to restore parity with 
electricians in the private con- 
tracting industry. 

Mr. Ennais said last night that 
a revised offer had been put to 
the union which he believed 
would improve the pay of Health 
Service electricians hy bringing 
alt nr most of them into the 
Health Service productivity' 
scheme, which is within the pay 

At present it is believed that 
only about a. third of the elec- 
tricians benefit from such 
schemes. The revised offer would 
be expected to speed the pro- 

Mr. Ennals added that if a 
settlement could not be reached 
nn the basis of yesterday's pro- 
posals the Government would 
consider with the union whether 
a third party might usefully be 
brought in as either a mediator 
or a conciliator. 

Both sides were hopeful that 
.1 satisfactory settlement would 
be reached eventually without, 
further resort to a call for a 

Autumn target set 
for British Steel’s 


SIX rank-and-file trade unionists 
could be on the board of the 
British Steel Corporation by the 
autumn, possibly before a gen- 
eral election is called. 

Mr. Eric Varley, Industry 
Secretary, is pushing ahead with 
a plan to give about a third of 
the seats on an enlarged board 
to the unions, and has called for 
nominations by early next 

The unions have agreed how 
thtf seats are to be divided. Two 
would go to the Iron and Steel 
Trades Confedei»tion. and one 
each to the National Craftsmen's 
Co-ordinating Committee (repre- 
senting all craft unions), the 
National Union of Blastfurnace- 
men, the General and Municipal 
Workers’ Union and the Trans- 
port and General Workers’ 

Union leaders are seeking a 
seventh seat, to ensure a full 

third of the places since the 
board — with ten members at 
present — can, without a change 
in the 1967 Act, go up to 21 
seats. They have agreed that the 
seventh place would also go to 
the Confederation. 

The representatives will be 
lay union members, but it has 
not been decided whether men 
with negotiating duties will be 
disqualified. The non-TUC man- 
agement union, SIMA, has not 
been included. 

BSC already has 17 worker- 
directors on divisional manage- 
ment boards, nominated by the 
TUC sieei committee, but the 
Varley plan goes much further. 

It also differs from the work- 
er-director experiment in the 
Post Office, which started this 
year, in that the Post Office 
Lfoion representatives are not 
from the shop floor. 

International bank loan 
minimum margin down 


THE MINIMUM margin on 
medium-term international bank 
loans has moved down again 
after several months of stability. 

The French Caisse Nationale 
de Telecommunications is rais- 
ing $300m at a margin of i per 
cent over inter-bank rates com- 
pared with the l per cent at 
whicb the banks bad succeeded in 
holding the minimum spread, 
though they 'had given ground to 
borrowers in other ways. 

The loan has a maturity of 10 
years with seven years’ grace 
before repayments start The 
spread of i per cent is payable 
for the first five years rising to 
* per cent for the remainder. 

The loan, which carries a 

sovereign guarantee is jointly 
led hy Bankers Trust Inter- 
national and Societe Generate. 

The management group in- 
cludes Algemene Bank Neder- 
land. Deutsche Bank. Banque 
Europeenne de Credit, London 
and Continental Bankers, Fuji 
International Finance, West- 
deulsche Landesbank, and Union 
Bank of Switzerland. 

The SlOOrn seven-year loan on 
a split spread of per cent 
which Gaz de France arranged 
last February cannot be con- 
sidered in the same category as 
a medium-term loan because it 
was raised as backup for com- 
mercial paper and stands tittle 
chance of being used. 

Tailing to be extradited 


former business colleague of Mr. 
-lint Slater, the financier, is to be 
extradited to Singapore later 
this month to face five charges 
under the company law there. 

This is because Mr. Merlyn 
Rees, Home Secretary, has 
decided, as the Home Office con- 
firmed last night not to exercise 
his discretion to prevent the exl 
tradition, though an appeal had 
been made to him on Mr. 
Tarling's behalf. 

Mr, Rees’ decision marks the 
latest stage in a lengthy legal 
battle since extradition proceed- 
ings were brought by the Singa- 

pore Government at tfie begin* 
rung of last year. 

It is expected that Mr. Turling, 
43, one-time chairman of tbe 
Singapore company Haw Par 
Brothers International, which 
was formerly an associate of 
Slater Walker Securities, will be 
given a time and a flight to 
Singapore on or about June 26, 
when the extradition warrant is 
expected to be executed by the 
British police. 

Mr. Tonv Leifer. of D. J. 
Freeman. Mr. Tarling's solicitors, 
said last night: “W« are 
extremely disappointed and sur- 
prised at the decision, in the 
light of the fact that the 

charges in respect of which the 
extradition is ordered are not 
custodial” — that is. cannot 
attract prison sentences — “in 
this country." 

The charges relate to whether 
the accounts of Haw Par showed 
a true and fair view for 1972 
and 1973- 

The Singapore Government 
originally brought charges in 
connection with the affairs of 
Haw Par against Mr. Tariing and 
Mr. Slater, chairman until 
October 1974 of Slater Walker 

Mr. Slater was cleared by the 
Chief Metropolitan Magistrate of 
all six charges against lum.

THE GILT-EDGED market was 
quiet and rather subdued yes* 
ter day in the wake of the 
Government’s two issues total- 
ling £L8bn of stock. 

The new £lbn ultra-long 
stock, which was well receired 
on Thursday when about two- 
thirds was thought to have 
been sold at the initial offer, 
started Its life in the market 
at a slight discount. At the 
end of dealings yesterday, the 
stock was quoted at a discount 
of « from the £15 which was 
paid up on issue. 

Applications for the £800m 
short-medium stock issued yes- 
terday were thought to have 
been small, and prices at the 
short end of the market ended 
with small falls. In the medium 
and long ranges there was little 
change, except that stocks 
close to the term of the new 
long tap stock were slightly 

The Financial Times Govern- 
ment securities index lost 0.13 
to 70-44. a rise of 0.18 over the 
past week. 

Meanwhile, in their 'latest 
monetary bulletin. stock- 

brokers W. Greenwell express 
continued concern over the 
outlook in spite of last week's 
new measures. 

The possibility of a wage 

explosion following recent 

excessive monetary expan- 

sion. they say, has now 

But double digit inflation is 
still " all too likely” and they 
do not believe that last week's 
package is adequate. “ We still 
have serious reservations about 
Uie stance of fiscal policy." 

In the short ran, the brokers 
expect the gilt-edged market 
to be buoyant. But in the 
medium-term, the bulletin 
suggests, the official corset on 
hank growth could come 
under pressure. 

M Our conclusion is that the 
latest re-introduction of the 
corset will probably not mark 
major turning points of the 
economy and interest rates as 
it did on the previous two

its impact on capital spending, 
which is still sluggish. 

Others suggest that the 
Federal Reserve is becoming 
less able to influence short- 
term money markets with any 
precision because surging 
demands for credit from both 
business and consumers are 
putting strong upward pressure 
on rates. 

Consumer credit has risen at 
a record pace this year, arous- 
ing fears that this is a reflec- 
tion of a deepening inflationary 
psychology, with consumers 
buying in anticipation of price 

Business loan demand, out- 
side the New York City banks, 
is also rising very strongly. 

Earlier this week Citibank's 
monthly economic letter 
warned of the danger of a 
credit crunch ahead. 

The stock market which 
normally reacts badly to 
interest rate increases, but has 
shrugged off recent incceases 
during the rally which began in 
April, remained firm in the 
face or the prime rate rise after 
recovering an initial decline. - ■ 

The upward drift or U.S. 
interest rates is expected to 
give additional support to the 
dollar on the foreign exchange 

® Jurek Martin writes from 
Washington: Two reports 

today point to slowing of U.S. 
economic activity from recent 
vigorous levels in which the 
economy rebounded from the 
winter doldrums. Housing 
starts last month fell 4.9 per 
cent compared with April, 
while new building permits 
were down 8.8 per cent. 

This fall was expected by 
both government and industry 
experts, and does not mean ' 
that the home building sector 
is falling into another reces- 
sion yet. Nevertheless it Is 
clear that higher interest rates 
and scarcer availability of 
mortgage finance are beginning 
to he felt. 

The Government reported 
that personal income rose last 
month by 0.9 per cent. This 
contrasts with a revised 1.3 
per cent advance in April and 
1.4 per cent in March. 

I I: 

So much for the gilt-edged 
bonanza. The speculative 
euphoria which had gripped 
the financial markets at the end 
of last week was spoiled by the 
author! ties’ clumsy announce- 
ment of vet another tap stock 
on Monday. After well over 
£lbn worth of gilts bad been 
bought in lie preceding two 
trading days, the prospect iff 
taking up another £lJ8bn was 
just too much for the market 
and for the next four days the 
FT Government Securities Index 
drifted lower. But at ! the 
moment the market seems to be 
suffering from nothing more 
than a bad attack of indigestion. 
Meanwhile, equities continue to 
drift sideways in the narrow 
450480 band. 


Most of BP's profits .come put 
of two pipelines— from Pnidhoe 
Bay. Alaska and the Forties 
Field — and the whole emphasis 
of its investment programme has 
been upstream. Now it is taking 
what it sees as a small step in 
the other direction. The two 
acquisitions announced yester- 
day total £430m (£270m down, 
and the rest in the form of debt 
obligations) and ure not that 
dramatic in the context 'of a 
group with shareholders’ funds 
exceeding £3±bn and annual 
capital spending, of film. But 
they both represent an attempt 
to strengthen downstream activi- 
ties which have been a big drain, 
in the recent past 

In Germany, BP is already 
moving towards a break-even 
position after two years of heavy 
losses. The immeditae effect, of 
its agreement with Veba wHl be 
to raise the throughput in .its- 
Genoan refineries and improve 
the marketing mix. Bat what it. 
describes as •* the jewel io the 
crown ” is the 25 per cent hold- 
ing which it is acquiring in 
Ruhrgas, Germany’s largest gas 
transmission company. Ruhrgas 
is covered with its gas require- 
ments through to 1985, and the 
hope is that its needs thereafter 
could be tied in with some of 
BP’s upstream activities. Even 
before then, BP will be looking 
on Ruhrgas as more than just a 
portfolio investment and it says 
that in financial terms the 
German package is very attrac- 

The same probably does not 
apply to the acquisition from 
Union Carbide of a major 
chunk of its European interests 
in ethylene derivatives. This 
is a sector plagued by over 
capacity, and BP seems to be
