to head 
Thomas 
Cook 

BY MARGARET REID 


Sir John Cockney, knighted 
In Saturday’s Honours Ust r is 
expected to become chairman 
of Thomas Cook Group, the 
travel business wholly owned 
by Midland Bank. 

Sir John, chairman - of . the 
Crown Agents as well as of 
the Port of London Authority, 
was chosen as a director of 
the Midland Bank at a Board 
meeting on Friday, although 
this has not been announced; 

A banker and Industrialist, 
he. has guided the Crown 
Ag en t s since October, 1974, 
towards recovery after losses 
of more than £2 00m on 
secondary banking and pro- 
perty. from which the agents 
are disengaging. He is to 
give up this role, after four 
years, in October. 

Sir John, 53, has been chair- 
man of tbe Port -of London 
Authority since Last year, in 
which capacity he gave a warn- 
ing that the port could be 
heading for bankruptcy unless 
adequate remedial action was 
taken. 

His grappling with the prob- 
lems of the Port of London 
has- further entrenched his 
reputation as a trouble- 
shooter which first developed 
when he was called in, from 
1970 to 1972, to handle the 
difficulties of the problem- 
vexed Mersey Docks and 
Harbour Board. 

At Thomas Cook. Sir John 
will succeed Sir Alan Walker, 
the former chairman of Bass 
Charrington who. died suddenly 
in January and was a director 
of Midland Bank. 

Difficulties 

Thomas Cook went through 
a difficult time in the competi- 
tive travel industry when ft 
incurred a loss of £lJjn in 
1976. In 1977 it had recovered 
to show as after-tax profit of 
£2.6m. 

Midland Bank- bought out 
the minority Interests of Trust 
Houses Forte and the Automo- 
bile Association in Thomas 
Cook In March. 1977. to obtain 
full ownership of tbe travel 
concern. 

- Because Sir John's chair- 
manship at the Port of London 
Authority is part-time, he will 
clearly have time available ro 
nlav-aa active role in the Mid- 
land Bank group, although 
not holding a full-time execu- 
tive position there. . In due 
course, this could extend to 
other duties - which might ' 
Indude .some part in the ■ 
development of the business - 
of. the bank abroad, wbere his 
experience of the Crown 
Agents' large oversea busi- 
ness would be relevant - 
Sir John is bound . to be 
thought of in the City as a 
possible successor to Lord 
Armstrong, the Midland Bank’s 
chairman.

Carter prepares to dispel 
foreign policy confusion 


BY DAVID BELL 

MR. CARTER is to make a major 
Speech on Wednesday in a fresh 
effort to dispel the confusion 
that dow surrounds his Adminis- 
tration’s attitude towards the 
Soviet Union. 

Officials said this weekend that 
the President’s speech will be 
among the most important he 
has made- For some weeks, bat 
particularly in the last 10 days, 
senior officials have been send- 
ing conflicting signals about 
U.S.-Soviet relations, a process 
which culminated on Friday with 
a newspaper report that the 
Administration had effectively 
frozen further talks on strategic 
arms limitations for the time 
being- 

After the President’s unusually 
vehement denial of this report, 
it has emerged here that a week 
ago Mr. Andrei Gromyko, the 
Soviet Foreign Minister, caught 
the Administration off guard 
with a proposal that bath the 
U.S. and the Soviet Union should 
ban all new land-based inter- 
continental missiles. If accepted, 


according to Administration 0 fa- 
cials, this would mean no further 
work on the U.S. M-X mobile 
missile, a new weapon whose 
mobility makes it much less 
vulnerable to a Soviet surprise 
attack than existing fixed-site 
missiles. 

Officials insist that it is this 
proposal, and not Administration 
concern about Soviet and Cuban 
activities in Africa; that has led 
the U.S. to adopt a take-it or 
leave-it attitude in the current 
SALT negotiations. U-S. abandon- 
ment of the M-X would be 
extremely unpopular in tnngress 
and would probably make it im- 
possible for any new SALT 
treaty to get through the Senate- 

It is not clear why the Rus- 
sians chose to make a proposal 
of this kind so late in the day, 
hut there is speculation that it 
may be a last-minute attempt to 
test the Administration’s nego- 
tiating nerve. 

The President’s speech is 
doably important because for 
some time he has seemed unable 


WASHINGTON, June 4. 

to decide between the view of 
Dr. Zbigniew Brzeainski. his 
national security adviser, that 
the Russians are taking advan- 
tage Of U.S. weakness in Africa 
and elsewhere, and the views of 
Mr. Cyrus Vance, the Secretary 
of State, and others. 

The latter argue that irrespec- 
tive of Soviet activities in Africa 
and elsewhere the process of 
detente Is too important to risk 
destroying it, at least as long 
as there is still a possibility of 
a significant agreement on 
strategic arms. 

According to reports this week- 
end, SALT talks were very close 
to a successful conclusion before 
Mr. Gromyko’s unexpected pro- 
posal. A key remaining obstacle, 
the Soviet Backfire bomber, has 
yet to he surmounted, but it is 
thought that Mr. Carter and 
President Leonid Brezhnev 
could overcome it in a personal 
meeting. When, or whether, such 
a meeting will he held remains 
an open question.

Resignation may 
follow Schleyer 
search report 

By Jonathan Carr 

BONN, Jane 4. 

HERR WERNER MAIHOFER, 
the West German Interior 
Minister, seems bound to come 
under increasing pressure to 
resign after the release at the 
weekend of an official report on 
the hunt last year for the indus- 
trialist, Dr. Hans Martin 
Schleyer, and his terrorist kid- 
nappers. 

The report finds that lack of 
co-ordination between political 
and police organisations meant 
that a “ hot tip ” received during 
the bunt was not followed np 
promptly. 

The report prepared by a 
former Minister, does not 
criticise by name either Herr 
Maihofer or Herr Burichard 
Hirsch, the Interior Minister of 
North Rhine-Westphalla. the 
state in which Dr. Schleyer was 
captured. ; 

But the nature of the recom- 
mendations and the exposure of 
errors during the hunt are 
widely seen as criticism of both 
men. Both are members of the 
Free Democrat Party which is in 
coalition with the Social Demo- 
crats in Bonn. 

Herr Maihofer is already 
under fire — not only from the 
Opposition but from some mem- 
bers of the SPD over another 
case involving the federal border 
authorities, which come within 
his portfolio. 


Andreotti asks banks to 
help chemical industry 


BY PAUL BETTS 

ITALY’S Government asked- the 
country’s banking system this 
weekend to extend new credits 
to the chemical industry, to 
avoid the threat of closures and 
widespread lay-offs in the 
depressed south. 

The appeal was made after 
the meeting of an inter- 
ministerial committee for econo- 
mic planning, presided over by 
Sig. Giulia Andreotti. the Prime 
Minister. Earlier the financi- 
ally troubled Societa Italians 
Resine (SIR) chemicals group 
announced the progressive 
closure of a number of its plants 
in Sardinia. If carried through, 
the closures could have serious 
reDe reunions m the island, 
where 100,000 people are out of 
work already. 

There are fears that other 
large chemical groups, facing 
their worst crisis since the war, 


ROME. Jane 4. 

could also announce closures, 
which would hit the south 
particularly. 

The crisis has been precipi- 
tated by the decision of the 
hanks to stop advancing fresh 
funds to chemical groups, whose 
losses have now reached extrava- 
geht proportions. "Montedison. 
Italy’s largest chemical con- 
glomerate. last year lost L500bn 
(more than £300m) and its 
accumulated debts amounted to 
about L3,400bn (£2.4bn). 

The political consequences of 
mass lay-offs has forced the 
Government to intervene 

The - Christian Democrat 
minority Government, which Is 
to hold talks this week with the 
other main parties on the crisis, 
says the much overdue recon- 
struction program me for the 
industry will be published later 
this month.

Sweeping 
victory for 
Bangladesh 
ruler 

By Simon- Henderson 

DACCA, June 4. 
Major General Zia-ur Rahman, 
the military ruler and Presi- 
dent of Bangladesh, won ah 
overwhelming victory in the 
Presidential election yesterday 
gaining about 80 per cent of 
the votes cast. Bat his main- 
opponent,.; retired General 
9L A. G. OsutanL has alleged 
that large-scale rigging took 
place and a spokesman For his 
Democratic Unity Front has 
said it wlO not accept the 
result. _ 

By early evening with over 
' 95 per cent of the results 
announced. General Zla was 
leading with 15/141,540 votes as 
against 4J.36.289 for General 
Osnuud, his former superior 
and ex-head of the pre- 
Independence liberation forces. 

Of the other candidates the 
highest number of votes gained 
was by Hakim Manlana 
Khabimddin Ahmed, with just 
over 72,000. 

The turnout for the poll, 
seen by observers as au 
attempt by General Zla to 
further legitimise his role, was 
only about 52 per emit from a 
potential electorate of 38m. 

Both General Zla and 
General Osmani were leading 
six-party coalitions including 
Left and Right groups, and the 
month-long campaign focused 
on the issue of whether the 
presidential system of govern- 
ment . should be retained or 
whether a parliamentary sys- 
tem should he revived. To 
this end General Osmani had 
been planning to. restgir almost 
immediately if he had won. 

- The rigging allegation inclu- 
ded claims that Osmani sup- 
porters had been threatened 
with guns and ballot boxes had 
been, staffed with fictitious 
votes. Genera] Osraanf s 
Democratic Unity Front has 
filed a complaint with t be 
Election Commission but today 
the Chief Election Commis- 
sioner, Mr. Justice JL K 1 L 
Ninnl Islam said It was base- 
less. 

General Osmani is expec- 
ted to address - a Press con- 
ference tomorrow after meet- 
ing with the party .leaders of 
fats coalition. General Zla will 
hold a Press conference tomor- 
row evening. 

Hie polling yesterday In 
Dacca and the surrounding 
districts appeared to take 
place calmly, though some 
correspondents reported that 
later In the day they had met 
scenes of near chaos In two 
polling station. 

Final results from outlying 
areas are; not expected until - 
.Wednesday or Thursday. The 
turn-out for the poll is sub- 
stantially less than the 88 per 
cent who voted in last; year’s 
referendum when people 
were asked to show their sup- 
port for General Zia’s rule and 
gave a 98 per cost endorse-

Lebanese army m 



BY LOUIS FARES 

MORE THAN 3,000 Lebanese 
regulars will' eater southern 
Lebanon is the second half of 
June if Israeli forces withdraw 
to the geographic borders on 
June 13 as scheduled by the. 
Israeli Government 
The Government daily. At 
Thaoura quoting “ observers in 
the' Lebanese capital,*’ 'Said; 
“ Although no date has been 
fixed so far for the entrance of 
Lebanese troops into- south 
Lebanon— as decided by Presi- 
dents Hafez Assad of Syria and 
Ellas Sarkis of Lebanon during 
theft- 24-boor meeting in Lattakis 
earlier this week— these troops 
have been info a status of alert 
since in order to move, south “ 
The Syrian leaders, however, 
are expressing publicly their 
fears that "Israel is stalling -for 
time." and may -not. withdraw 
completely from the area. .If 
this is the case, the joint Syrian- 


Lebafles* plan H to assure legiti- 
mate authority of the Lebanese 
legal government in the -whole, 
south" will be jeopardised. 

Syria - has received assurances 
from the leadership of the 
Palestine Liberation Organisa- 
tion (PtiO) that the Palestinians 
have agreed ‘’ to co-operate with 
the new decisions.”’ The head of 
the PLO’s military department 
was quoted in .the same paper: 
“ The - PLO can assure control 
over 90 per cent of the guerrillas, 
and it is not acceptable that the 
UN troops stationed in south 
; Lebanon be harassed." 

L Daniel reports from Tel 
Aviv: . The Israeli authorities 
may have to reassess their view 
of., a Syrian military, presence 
much closer to the Israeli border 
following the' Assad-Sarfcis agree- 
ment. ; In . the past, ■ Israel has 
Objected to Syrian troops being 


DAMASCUS. June 4 

close to the “red line ” of the 
Litanl river. 

Th mw mjozl adds from Beirut: 
Palestinian guerrilla leaders are 
currently engaged In ' lop-leyel 
contacts aimed at reorganising 
-the entire military structure of 
the movement and the relation- 
ship of the eight main com- 
mando groups. 

Mr. Yassir Arafat, chairman of 
the Palestine Liberation Organi- 
sation, told a rally , here yester- 
day the proposed reorganisation, 
will take into consideration the 
experience acquired in fighting 
the Israeli army when it invaded 
southern Lebanon in March. He 
did not give details. 

The main guerrilla group, 
Fatah, which Se also headed by 
Mr. Arafat, is said to have pro- 
posed that the guerrillas in. 
Lebanon be brought into one 
“People's Army” under a 
central military command. 


NYC pay deal expected 
before Senate deadline 


BY JOHN WYUES 

MR. EDWARD KOCH, mayor of 
New York and union leaders 
representing 225,000 .' municipal 
employees are confidently pre- 
dicting today- that they' will- 
reach agreement on a new -pay ^ 
deal before Tuesday's crucial 
Senate hearings on a new 
federal aid programme- for the 
city. 

After parting in -deadlock, oil 
Thursday, the two sides .are' 
meeting this evening to' put the. 
finishing touches to a two-year 
contract giving 8 per cent pay 
rises and costing the city a total 
of $1 Jhn. 

It appears that Thursday’s 
“ collapse ” of the pay talks was 
a piece of theatre by the mayor 
who was anxious to preserve the 
hard-line, tight-pursed reputation 
with which he was elected last 
November. 

The mayor has had to make a 
number of concessions, to. secure 
a posable agreement He has 
almost certainly conceded more 
in pay rises than he would have 
wished and he has failed to 
obtain the $200m. a - year in 
special payments which . he 
wanted the anions to renounce. 

The mayor could, argue before 
the Senate banking . committee 
on Tuesday that the municipal 


. 'NEW YORK, June 4. 

pay contract is within the city's 
extremely limited financial 
means. It remains to be seen 
whether Senator William Prox- 
mire, the committee’s chairman, 
who opposes any more financial 
help for New York City, and his 
colleagues can he be convinced 
that the pay negotiations have 
been an exercise in fiscal 
’responsibility. 

Without a pay deal there 
would be very little prospect of 
congressional approval for a new 

federal aid programme before 
the existing aid package expires 
on June 30. In contrast to this 
programme which has provided 
the city with S2L5ba of seasonal 
loans repayable at market rates 
of interest within 12 months, the 
new federal proposals would pro- 
ride only guarantees for up to 
S2bn over a 15-year period. 

The city's capital requirement 
for the next four years is $4.5bn, 
$2 bn of which It hopes to secure 
from state and union pension 
funds with the help of the 
Federal Government guarantees. 

In addition New York City 
banks and savings institutions 
have promised to buy a farther 
Slbn of bonds issued by the 
Municipal Assistance Corpora* 
tlon, without any federal guaran- 
tee.

Muted welcome 
faces envoys 
to Rhodesia 

By. Tony Hawkins 

SALISBURY, June 4. 
MR. JOHN GRAHAM, the British 
envoy involved ' in renewed 
Rhodesian settlement efforts, 
will find little enthusiasm for a 
new all-party conference on 
Rhodesia when be arrives here 
tomorrow. 

Mr. Graham, accompanied by 
Mr. Stephen Low, the U.S. 
Ambassador to Zambia, will try 
to convince the Rhodesian transi- 
tional Government that it is in 
its interests to agree to new 
talks with the Soviet and Cuban- 
barked Patriotic Front guerrillas. 

The Rev. Ndabaoingi Slthoie, 
the current chairman of the four- 
man Rhodesian transitional 
Executive Council, said last 
week that although tbe Council 
was willing to Listen to the views 
of the Anglo-American envoys 
its position an an all-party con- 
ference on Rhodesia bad not 
changed. 

Mr. Sifhole said that the 
Executive Council wished to re- 
affirm its determination to im- 
plement ' the ** internal settle- 
ment ” signed on March 3, rather 
than participate in new talks 
with the guerrillas. Mr. Sithole 
also emphasised that the Anglo- 
American visit was taking place 
oh tbe understanding tbat “sub- 
stantive discussions ” would take 
place between the envoys and 
the transitional government. 

Tbe official statement said it 
was anticipated tbat the envoys 
would spend up tn two weeks in 
Rhodesia. The Fact that there 
is remarkahlv little interest in 
the visit reflects Salisbury’s con- 
tinuing belief that the only 
chance of a remotely peaceful 
band-over . to majority- rule lies 
with the internal settlement 
A Defence headquarters 
bulletin tonight said Rhodesian 
security forces had killed 12 
guerrillas and five "collabora- 
tors" tor the loss of one white 
policeman.

BRITAIN'S 14BCHANICAL engi- 
neering industry will collect 
orders worth aroimd £40Om over 
the next yqzr. Jar plant and 
machinery for -.the Isfahan 
ordnance, complex in Iran. 

Some industry - sources . sug- 
gest; that. the. complex will 
require at least aoom of 
machine , tools .’ alone from the 
UK, 

■ Discussion®-: about- the- -deal 
nave heea : going on for jkbcrat 
three years but: the way" was 
cleared for a- final go-ahead with: 
the signing'of a protocal agree- 
ment In Tehran an May 10. ' 
_Now UK industrialists- expect 
Millbank Technical Services, the 
contractual aim of the Ministry, 
of Defence, to start placing con- 
tracts possibly within weeks and 
certainly in only a Sets months’ 
time. • 

The complex will "turn out a 
unde range of ammunition -as 
well as spare parts {such as gun 
. barrels) . for Iran’s - Chieftain 
tanks. Informed- estimates of. the 
cost put .it at around £770m. 
^Completion will, probably take 
to three and a half-years. - 

The UK will also benefit from 
the civil engineering contracts to 
be placed as the Wimpey-Lalng 
consortium seems likely to get 
the lion’s share of that business. ■ 

One of the major reasons for 
the delay in the project— if it had 
gone ahead as originally p lann ed 
•t would have coincided with the 
depths of the recession in the VK 
mechanical engineering industry 
—was the question of payment 

It now seems almost '. .certain 
that Iran will not pay cash but 


Canadian rail 
cars contract 


will insist on' payment in oil. 
This will involve MTS finding an 
oil company willing to buy 
quantities of Iranian oil over and 
above its, normal requirements. 
The funds Iran Obtains from the 
sale would then he put into a 
separate account to pay the con- 
tractors. 

A precedent for this arrange- 
ment was set by the deal worked 
wt -by. .Iran • with General 
Dynamics of the D.S. and Ash- 


land Oil over the purchase of 
the F-16 fighter. 

Site work on the complex 
began as long ago as 1975 us it 
is normal practice in Iran for 
such work to start before con- 
tracts have been finalised. How- 
ever, more than a year ago some

Afghan tractors sale 


BY OUR INDUSTRIAL STAFF 

FARM MACHINERY worth 
nearly 53m. is being supplied 
to Afghanistan by Massey-Fergu- 
son, mainly from its UK plants, 
under two contracts which the 
group says' were won “in the 
face of intense international com- 
petition from virtually all other 
major mana/aetureis.” 

The first order, for tractors 
and implements worth nearly 
84m,. has been financed by the 
World Bank's International De- 
velopment Agency and is from 
the .Afghanistan Agricultural 
Bank." It includes 400 MF135 
tractors made at the Coventry 
plant and matched sets of im- 
plements in be supplied from the 
UK -and three, other countries. 

..The equipment wit! be offered 
by the Bank with credit arrange- 
ments for purchase by individual 
farmers. 

The other order has been 
placed by Afghan Seeds Com- 


pany and involves the supply of 
26 Coventry-made JLF1S5 trac- 
tors and 13 MF520 Super II com- 
bines made at the Kilmarnock, 
Scotland, plant, together with a 
quantity of implements and 
other machines. 

The deal, worth over £700,000 
and funded by the Asian Develop- 
ment Bank, will provide equip- 
ment for four farms which the 
seeds company operates in the 
Kandahar area. 

Apart from one other 3tf-F 
machine supplied last year, these 
are believed to be the first com- 
bines made io a Wstern country 
to be sold to Afghanistan for at 
least ten years. 

On both contracts M-F will 
provide the Afghan authorities 
with a substantial programme of 
training support in the manage- 
ment, operation and maintenance 
of the equipment.

8Y TERRY DODSWORTH 

RENAULT, THE French motor 
group, is considering plans io 
expand production at its 
associate company in Turkey to 
more than double its present 
capacity of between 40,001) and 
50.000 units a year- 

Tbe Turkish concern. Oyak- 
Renault, in which the French 
company has a 44 per cent stake, 
would like to develop on the 
base of its present R12 produc- 
tion into manufacturing ihe new 
R18 in two to three years time. 

A detailed programme has 
been worked out with a view to 
putting this Io ihe Turkish Gov- 
eminent, which controls the 
industry through licensing 
agreements, towards the end of 
this year. 

But before taking this step. 
Renault will almost certainly 
press for Turkish commitments 
on remittance nf royalties and 
relaxation of price controls. 

The problem facing both the 
1 company and the Government at 
the moment is that Turkey is 
in a balance of payments crisis. 
This makes the future for invest- 
ments in the country uncertain, 
while putting a damper on any 
plans for development likely io 
suck in more imports. 

1 On both counts Ihe Renault 
project will cause difficulties. 
Renault has to have some 
assurance that it will he paid 
for its services and parts ex- 
ports. while any development is 
bound to demand the import of 
more foreign machinery. 

So far. however. Oyak-Renault 
has managed to overcome the 
crisis by keeping its plants work- 
ing at almost full capacity of 
about ISO cars a day. It has 
managed to do this by arranging 


-»-■ - -TV'o. • '-2g»' 


various barter and financing 
deals to overcome Turkey’s 
foreign currency shortages. 

By contrast. Fiat, its major 
competitor, which has a joint 
company with the Koc Group. 
Has cut output from ISO units 
a day to about 90. This reduction 
has come partly because Fiat 
which has also arranged barter 
deals, has decided to put its 
main effort into maintaining out- 
put in its truck operations in 
the country. 

There is no tlnuht that the 
Turkish Government would like 
to expand output in the country 
if it can find some way of bear- 
ing the strain on iis balance of 

payments. 

These difficulties have caused 
a number of companies to cut 
off supplies of engineering pro- 
ducts recently, among them 
Massey-Fcrsuso/i tractor? of 
Britain, but the hope is that 
exports can be built up (o com- 
pensate for the outward drain 
on funds. 

The motor industry will 
clearly be asked to help in this 
area, and will be required to 
export five per cent of produc- 
tion as output builds up. To 
this end, Oyak-Renault has been 
looking at a mimner of over- 
seas markets recently, and sees 
opportunities fur developing 
overseas sales mainly in the 
Arab states of North Africa.

FOLLOWING THE success of the 
British steel industry in gaining 
; invitations from the recent 
: Chinese sleel mission to visit 
! China there is considerable 
: interest in the outcome of 
! Peking's other industrial delega- 
tion led by Ku Ming. Vice- 
: Minister of the State Capital 
; Construction Commission which 
! also" spent over two weeks in 
I Britain last month. 

Ku Ming had a a extremely 
successful meeting with Dr. 
! David Owen. Foreign Secretary, 
'and also held discussions with 
I the Secretaries for Trade. Energy. 
Transport and Agriculture. His 
! delegation toured British coal 
| mines, ports, power stations, rail- 
jways. petrochemical plants and 
I oil installations, specifically io 
j examine advanced technology. 

’ To cover the widest possible 
! ground, the mission split up into 
■three parties for two weeks of 
■the tour. However, the whole 
I mission took part in the trip to 
Jlhe advanced gas cooled reactor 
iut Hinkley Point “B” power 
I station which fhe Chinese had 
I particularly requested. They 
{were also interested in the 
1 organisation and management of 
(the electricity supply industry, 
the handling of the fluctuations 


in demand and i!,o comparative 
costs of oil, coal and nuclear 
power generation. Since the 
present Peking leadership came 
to power in 1976 its official Press 
has ‘ frequently pointed out the 
inadequacy of ns own power 
industry’. 

• Vice-Minister Ku's group

where they were- particularly 
interested in the use of com- 
puters and remote control, 
especially the automatically

conveyor belts for delivery direct 
to nearby power stations. China 
has already bought large quanti- 
ties of British mining equipment,

' PRESSURE FOR forming two 
, separate cartels in the bulk 
shipping markets will be the 
• main item for behind-the-scenes 
j discussion among ship owners at 
{this week’s Posidonia Shipping 
Exhibition here. 

Or the two, the oil tanker 
scheme, known as International 
Tanker Services, is the closer to 
fniiiioo and relies for Us pro- 
gress on support from key Greek 
owners. 

It originated in Scandinavia, 
where owners took the first shock 
{wave of the tanker market 
collapse in 1974-75 and some of 
1 the Scandinavian owners will be 


among those attempting to tie up 
an agreement here this week. 

The scheme's originators 
believe that 40m deadweight 
tonnes of tanker shipping is 
required to make the scheme 
work. 

Scandinavians have already 
guaranteed half that figure and 
letters of intent are understood 
to have been signed by the 
biggest Japanese owners, Sanko 
and Japan Line. 

This leaves only one critical 
gap — the Greeks, whose reaction 
remains unknown. 

A second cartel scheme for 
dry bulk trades known as lint er- 


Royce engines in the Trident 
aircraft they have bought. 

The Chinese have no titanium 
industry of their own though 
the country has ore deposits of 
the metal. TheiT interest 
clearly slums front their recog- 
nition of j is resistance to 
ouT'ision in. for example, the 
chemical »r coastal power 
industry, and its high strength* 
io-weight ratio which makes it 
valuable to ihe aircraft industry. 

This visit was followed by one 
In the IC1 petrochemicals plant 
on Tees-side, the largest of its 
kind in Europe and useful to the 

Chinese as an example of inte- 
grated development. They 
showed keen interest in manage- 
ment. safety and environmental 
problems as well as in all the 
technology. 

Part of the delegation also 
visited the port of Hull and 
Inimincham where they were 
impressed by the modernisation 
grafted onto old construction. 
This experience is particularly 
relevant lo China's needs, as its 
much expanded programme oT

out successfully until loading

lay-up of surplus tonnage in 
order fu push freight rates 
beyond their present loss-making 
levels. 

It is at a much earlier stage

much chance of success, although

\Afe ve given one of the 
worlds ten best cars the boot. 


The Honda Accord 3-Door hatchback. Rated as 
one of the ten best cars in the world by Road and Track. 

One hundred points ahead of other Japanese 
cars in the European / Car of the Yeaf Award- and 
voted top by Autocar and the Observer. 

Winner of its class in the 77TotalEconomy run. 

A great car Now we've given it a boot, 15-97 cubic feet 
of it. And four doors. And even more refinements to 
the incredibly long list of extras built-in as standard. 

The clock, for example, is digital.The Radio is 
FMand AM. The heating and ventilation systemis also 
ducted to the front doors for side-window de-misting, 
and to the rear seat area for extra passenger comfort. 

The boot can be unlocked from the driver's 
position. 

And so on. 

Any other car would be called a Ghia, a De-Luxe

LEGISLATION TO force Britain's 
water authorities to accept pay- 
ment by 'instalment to ease the 
burden of charges, should be in- 
troduced as soon as possible, tbe 
Association of Metropolitan 
.Authorities said yesterday.. 

The association also wants an 
investigation into a rebate 
scheme linked with (he rebates 
given against local authority rate 
payments. 

Councillor Jack Smart, chair- 


man of the association, said: 

“ We want to see legislation that . 
will oblige, the water authorities 
lo adopt schemes similar to -those 
for the payment of local autho- 
rity rates.” ’ 

The chairmen of .the water - 
authorities have already given aa . 
undertaking to government to 
accept payments by instalments : 
whenever that may be required^ 
but so far the Government has; 
not requested such a move. 


IN BRIEF 

ClydeDock Engineering 
may buy Greek yard 


ClydeDock Engineering, the ship- 
repairing company formed last 
year, fs interested in buying 
the Neorion Shipyards on the 
island of Syros- 

Mr. Rankin Durnin, the com- 
pany's financial director, has 
visited the yards, which closed 
down in March, but negotiations 
are still at a very early stage. 

ClydeDock Engineering, which 
was founded by Mr. R_ E. Butler 
with £lm capital, has the back- 
ing of a group of Scottish busi- 
nessmen and the Scottish 
Development Agency, which 
announced a £100,000 investment 
in the company in April last year. 
The company operates from the 
Former yard of Alexander 
Stephen FShiprepairers ) at 
Govan. 

The Neorion Shipyards were 
operated by the N. J. Goulandris 
group, which closed the yards 
and laid off about 1.200 workers 
after a series of strikes com- 
pounded financial difficulties 
caused by over-capacity in the 
industry. 

According to the Greek maga- 
zine NaftiJiaki International, the 
yard represented an investment 
of- £llm-£13.7m. (820m- 25m) 

when it closed but Jiad credits 
of £fl.9m fSlSm) from the 
National- Bank of Greece and 
£5 .8 m (SI 0.5m I from the 
Development Bank of Greece.

pared with March lasl year. This

13.6m gallons, a rise of 2.68in 
nations or 24.5 per cent on the 
same period of last year.

Whether you' re in business for yourself, or an 
executive doing a vital job. you may well feel you’re 
getting a raw deal nowadays. 

Suppose your income is £10,000. 

Not so long ago, you could live well on that sort of 
mone\ . . and set aside enough to create wealth 
for yourself. 

Today, high tax levels and inflation have made 
life more difficult. Indeed.The Economist Intelligence 
Unit has estimated that anyone earning £10,000

seven years ago needs over £40,000 to enjoy the 
same standard of living today. 

Yet the problem isn't insoluble. If you kno , 
how, you can save money that would otherwise 


to the tax man, and use it to provide for your 
own future. 

Todays tax structure, if you take advantage 
of it properly, can help you to create wealth for 
yourself. But. with tax regulations changing frequently 
you need the help of experts. 

This is where we come in. At Equity & Law 
we have '134 years' experience of successful money 
management. We can prepare a plan for you that 
will ensure you are able to accumulate capital free 
of personal taxes, so that instead of you financing 
the tax man, he's helping to finance your future. 

Talk to your financial adviser, or contact us 
direct for more information. But, above all, don't 
delay. For every extra day that passes you would be 
paying money to the tax man that could be working 
foryou instead.

The Steel Committee of the TUC. 

And finally, the full weight of the British 
Steel Corporation itself. 

What you could get out of it 

l ahr>nr A skilled workforce, specially 

trained in advance for your company. 

Sil-fls and premises. A choice of fully- 

serviced industrial sites, many of them 
greenfield, in England, Scotland and Wales. 
Plus advance and custom-built factories. 

Financial incentives 

One. We’ll help you squeeze every last 
penny from Central Government, Regional 
Development funds, and the funds of the 
European Goal and Steel Community. 

We’ll take you by the hand and make 
sure you don’t trip over any red tape. 

Two. In addition to these funds, we 
have our own. We can use these to tailor 
incentives to your particular needs. Our 
brief is to be very flexible, as long as good, 
solid, long-term jobs are being created. 


Three. If you trade with BSC, so much 
the better We may be able to help you 
even more. 

Four If your business is steel-related, 
we may be able to take share-holdings and 
give financial support. Again the critical 
factor is ‘investment per job created. 

So for those companies which react 
quickly, our loss could be turned into a 
very big gain indeed.

the former line, sooner rather 
-than later if he will begin to 
worry ' ! 'ahodl the reactions of 
his employers. Why has he re- 
'fused ? : 'Js he afraid that sonic 
dire disease may be discovered? 
JMaybe, .Indeed, he is: himself 
subconsciously fearful ? Suffice 
it- to; say that a ..healthy atmos- 
’ phene for promotional pros- 
pects Is not created. 


Fortuitous 


Supposinig he^ ^a^ees .and goes 
tiirbughjthe' batteiy.of tests 
and ’then^qnite" ^fortuitously, 
dttringihe ^cceedlnig^ months, 
he fails toclimb the ladder in 


the way he had expecLed — or 
even drops a rung or two. 

He may well formulate fears 
that some dire medical dis- 
order has been discovered and 
revealed to his superiors. How- 
ever much he may be assured 
that the doctors in charge 
would never inform anyone 
other than their own colleagues 
of some dreadful disease, and 
then only when necessary, it 
is no easy task for an employee 
to put from bis mind that 
those who sponsored the exer- 
cise would uncharacteristically 
squander money from an alien 
sense of innocent al truism. 

Now it is quite true that the 
machines and tests may reveal 
certain tendencies based on 
current notions, but only many 
years of experience will reveal 
the validity or otherwise of 
such surmises. On the other 
hand, it is common experience 
that most maladies of a truly 
serious nature do not remain 
silent for long. They show 
themselves as vividly as the 
feathers of a cockbird in 


spring. These will certainly be 
revealed again by the battery 
of scientific tests: but, alas, this 
does not for one moment mean 
that they can be as easily cured. 
On the contrary, they may lead 
to a state of hypochondriasis. 

I must make it clear at this 
point that I am referring to 
“ £ull*body, total tests ” and not 
to matters more specific. For 
example. regular cervical 
smears should be taken from 
women, as early diagnosis here! 
may well lead to a happy out-| 
come. But here one is dealing | 
with disease that may have 
arisen as the result of treating 
health rather than illness. 

A recent issue of lhc Journal 
of the Royal College of Physi- 
cians of London, reveals that, 
statistically, there is very little 
difference in life-expectancy j 
etc. between groups who havei 
had annual medicals over many I 
years and control groups who) 
have not participated in the | 
exercise. ! 

There is also mention of one i 
complication that 1 had over- 
looked. In some candidates who ! 
art* found to have, say. a higher! 
blond-pressure than is con-| 
sidered normal, there is a ten-| 
dency to begin to take time nff 
from work because of that 
abnormality which, hitherto, 
had not exercised their imagina- 
tion. 

T must make it plain that I 
am not against annual medical 
examinations, whether per- 
formed by humans or machines, 
so long as individuals desire 
them at their own free will and 
expense, dr. indeed, for any pri- 
vate medical treatment. It is 
their ’right and may promote 
happiness. And it is in no wise 
different from expending large 
sums on bigger, better televi- 
sions or outlandishly lavish 
weddings— practices not known 
among the ranks of those sup- 
posedly underprivileged. 

For those who can afford none 
of these ‘‘luxuries.** then that 
excessively expensive. in- 
credibly inefficient. wildly 
wobbling juggernaut, the NHS, 
should be able to supply all 
their needs as the accoucheur 
of the enterprise, the late 
Aneurin Sevan, honestly and 
faithfully believed that it would 
so do.

the chairman himself, on a par, 
with all your other directors — > 
in essence if not in name (Rams I 
is not actually on the board). 

This would mean a major | 
change for almost every British 
manufacturing company, whose 
top design executive — if it has 
one — will at best be responsible 1 
to. the board as' a whole (and 
therefore junior to all the 
directors); or answerable 10 
production or marketing, and 
therefore even more 
subservient. 

To Rams, the three yardsticks 
of good industrial design are: 
functional quality: aesthetic 
quality; and “manufactur- 
ability.” It is the successful, 
and cost-effective combination 
of all these three which have 
sustained Braun's success in ihe 
marketplace ever since Rams 
instigated its “design revolu- 
tion " over 20 years ago. 


AS FROM last Thursday, when 
the provisions of the Patents 
Act 1977 concerning employees’ 
inventions came into force, 
relations between British 
employers and their employee- 
inventors have been on a new, 
.very different and decidedly 
problematic footing. 

Up to now. Parliament has 
not interfered in this field. Any 
question about rhe ownership 
of an invention made by an 
employee was left to be decided 
by the terms of that employee’s 
contract of service or. in the 
absence of express terms, by the 
rules of common law. 

Under these rules, difficult 
questions about ownership could 
arise if there was room for 
doubt on whether the 
employee’s invention has been 
made in the course of his 
duties. So. in practice, most 
large employers required their 
employees to agree that any 
inventions made by them at any 

EMPLOYERS and employees 
cannot effectively contract out 
of the new provisions. Section 
42 of the Act. following in this 
respect the recommendations of 
the Banks Committee on the 
British Patent System (July 
1970), provides that any term in 
a contract between an employer 
and an employee which 
diminishes the latter’s rights 
in inventions made by him after 
the date of the contract (and 
after June 1. 1978) shall he un- 
enforceable “ 10 the extent that 
it diminishes his rights." 

For compensation to em- 
ployees, different provisions 
apply, depending on whether 
the invention belongs to the 
employer or to the employee. By 
section 40(l) of the Act, an 
employee who has made an in- 
vention belonging to his em- 
ployer for which a patent has 
been granted, and who claims 
that the patent is of outstand- 
ing benefit to his employer— and 
that it is just that he should be 
awarded compensation to be 
paid by the employer — may 
apply for compensation to the 
Comptroller of Patents or the 


time during their employment 
should be the property of the 
employer. 

Under the 3977 Art. which 
applies to inventions made by 
employees after June 1 1978, 
the question whether an inven- 
tion made by an employee be- 
longs to him or his employer 
is no longer left to contract or 
the common law. It is 
governed by section 39 of the 
Act, which narrowly circum- 
scribes the right of an em- 
ployer to claim ownership of 
an invention. 

Broadly speaking, the section 
provides that an employee’s in- 
vention shall be taken to 
belong to his employer if made 
in the course of the employee's 
duties: and in circumstances 
where either an invention 
might reasonably be expected 
to result from the carrying out 
of those duties, or the em- 
ployee had a special obligation 
to further the interests of the 


employer’s undertaking. In all 
other cases, the invention will 
belong to the employee. 

The Act, also for the first 
time in British patent law, 
enables employees to claim 
compensation for inventions 
they have made. 

The good intentions of those 
who framed the new provisions 
are not in doubt. But many 
employers and their advisers 
have serious misgivings as to 
how things will work out in 
practice. Since 'it will no 
longer be feasible for an em- 
ployer 4o agree with Ins em- 
ployees that any invention the 
latter may make during em- 
ployment shall belong to him. 
some employers fear there will 
be interminable conflicfs as to 
the ownership of inventions. 

They also fear that when such 
conflicts occur it may in some 
cases be impossible to reach 
agreement that the invention 
should be exploited pending the 


And how employees 
stand to gain 


court, within “the prescribed 
period." 

In the case of an invention 
made by an employee, he may 
also apply for compensation to 
the Comptroller or the court 
within the presented period, 
providing certain conditions 
apply; a patent has been granted 
and the employee’s rights in 
the patent have been assigned 
to his employer; the benefit de- 
rived by the employee on the 
assignment is inadequate in re- 
lation to the benefit derived by 
the employer: it is just that the 
employee should be awarded 
compensation to be paid by the 
employer, in addition to the 
benefit derived from the con- 
tract of assignment. 

The prescribed period is a 
period which begins when the 
relevant patent is granted, and 
expires one year after it has 
ceased to have effect. The term 


of a patent under the 1977 Act 
is 20 years. Employers must 
therefore now prepare them- 
selves to receive applications 
for compensation up to 21 years 
after an employee's invention 
was made. 

The amount of compensation 
for both kinds of invention is 
stated in section 41 of the Act 
to be “ such as will secure for 
the employee a fair share (hav- 
ing regard tn all the circum- 
stances) of the benefit which 
the employer had derived, or 
may reasonably be expected to 
derive, from the patent. . 

And the section contains elaboi^ 
ate addiliona! provisions as to 
what is to be taken into account 
by the court or Comptroller in 
determining the fair share. 

So. in determining the fair 
share in respect of a P3tent 
which has always belonged to 
the employer, the court nr 


resolution of the dispute, when 
it may be too late to put it to 
practical use. 

They believe that the new 
provisions may give rise 4n an 
unwillingness on the part of em- 
ployees to reveal new inventions 
and ideas and to cagmess and 
rivalry between follow em- 
ployees working in ihe same 
field. 

As for the compensation pro- 
visions. how is an employer, 
particularly a small employer, 
to clioiv for tlie possibility of 
a large claim for compensation , 
arising perhaps 20 years after r 
the invention was made? 

The pessimistic view was well 
put by Lord Eccies during thei 
Second Reading debate in the? 
House of Lords, when lie 
remarked that tlie provisions 
apeared to do nothing more 
than provide a feast for lawyers 
and would very likely imperil 
the relations between employee 
and employer. Even if one 
does not so all the way with 
Lord Eccles. one is left with 
the feeling that the new pro- 
provisions are likely to do more . 
harm than good. 

Comptroller must take into 
account, among other things, the 
nature of the employee's duties; 
his remuneration: the other . 
advantages he derives or has 
derived from his employment or 
in relation to the invention 
under the Act: the effort and 
skill he has devoted. to making 
the invention: rhe effort and 
skill which any other person, 
has. devoted to making the 
invention; and the contribution 
.made by the employer to the 1 
invention by the provision of 
advice and facilities and mana^ 
geria! and commercial skill. ^ 

In determining the fair share 
of the benefit to be secured lo- 
an employee in respect of a; 
patent for an invention which' 
originally belonged to him. the- 
court or Comptroller must take-' 
in*o account, among other] 
rhinos, any conditions in a- 
licence «r licences granted in 
resp-Tf of the patent, the e:tteot 
to which the invention was made- 
jointly by the emnjovee with any 
other person and the contribu- 
tion made by the employer to 
the invention.

A mood of intransigent excite- 
ment-breaks ottttbe uwaoent the 1 
stage is fit -and it -aeryer -relaxes 
for the 'Whole --of the magical 
evening. Downstage, the citizens, 
egged on by Barrie. Rutter’s 
radical First ,Cit, r seeui ready to 
Jump down over' the front of 
the. stage .and Set. about the 
stalls with their - pikes. Lucky 
for us rha t Graham Crawden's. 
Menenius, cabnljr settled on bis 
shooting-stick, ig' - so - emollient 
with his cunningly " longrdrawr.- 
out tale oE the belly and-, the 
limbs. 

The evening is long; the play 
lasts about three hours- and a 
half;, yet the tension never 
slackens for an instant. The 
production, directed by Terry 
Hands, is in what might be des- 
cribed as last year's .Stratford 
house-style, with a minim um of 
scenery, lively crowd -scenes 
conjured up (rather astonish- 
ingly in a play that depends so 
much on the temper of the 
people) with a handful of 
playere, events following one 
another as fast as physically 
possible. 

‘ The outstanding performances 
are naturally those of . Alan 
Howard as Coriolanus and 
Haxine A ad ley as his. mother 
Volumnia. Miss Audley is as war- 
like as her son, yet unremittingly 
patrician in the dignity . with 
which she trumpets forth ber 
faith in the dictatorship of the 
elite or goes through the motions 
of praying her son to be a two- 
fold traitor. Jill Baker's quiet 
Vlrgilia must have found life 
In. that, household, pure agony 
when her husband was. as usual, 
away at the wars. 

About Mr. Howard I have some 
strong reservations. There is no 
doubt that with paeans of sound 
from his emery-edged voice he 
can raise up. a martial ' music 


that sends them in the-- gallery. 
This is known as splitting the 
ears of the groundlings. My 
case is like Desdemona'sr ” 1 
understand a fury in your words, 
but not the words." The 
emotions sound as they should, 
but it is a rare thing if Mr. 
Howard Inflects the lines in 
accordance with their natural 
.meaning, or .indeed with any 
meaning.' He might as well, be 
singing .them from a musical 
score. I don’t deny the physical 
pleasure I get from hearing him; 
but how much better if 1 could 
add to that the actual sense of 
the words. 

There is much good common- 
sense speaking from the char- 
acters around hint. John Burgess 
and Oliver Ford-Davies bring the 
Tribunes to life In the very 
Image of General Secretaries of 
Trades Unions; 'and at the other 
end of the social ladder there is 
some notably good playing by 
Jeffery Dench as Cominius. 

The Volscians are encapsu- 
lated in Julian Glover’s icy. 
statuesque Aufidius. half a bead 
taller than Corioianus and sug- 
gesting a soBder character. All 
the same, when he has his hand- 
to-hand fight with, his Roman 
adversary— a band-in-hand fight 
in fact— he is the loser, and has 
to be rescued by his minions. 

Farrah’s forbfddinc set. the 
grey trapezium-shaped blocks 
that line each side of the stage 
capable of cunningly swivelling 
on their axes to enclose small 
areas, or to represent city walls, 
fits well Into the Aidwych. The 
lighting, by Terry Hands himself, 
-is often particularly interesting 
as it selects small areas or 
special concern. There is a fas- 
cinating moment when . Cono- 
lanus. standing apart behind the 
crowd, casts three menacing 
shadows on the back walk

EVOR BAIS 









Bath last week had royal 
weather almost as spectacular as 
that for the 1977 Festival during 
the Jubilee days. Once again, 
though there was an unfortunate 
clash between the opening of 
Glyndeboume and the first per- 
formance, by the John Alldis 
Choir, of Holloway's Hymn for 
Voices. Sir William Glock’s pro- 
gramming has shown his great 
flair for choices and juxtaposi- 
tions that turn out so stimulating 
in performance even when they 
look comparatively ordinary on 
paper. The first week was notable 
for a number of chamber con- 
certs of agreeable variety and 
interest. 

At lunchtime in the Guildhall 
on Tuesday, the gifted Arditti 
Quartet introduced to this 
country a work by the Viennese 

composer Kurt Schwertsik. 

Sfeizren uiwf Enururfe was a com- 
mission from an art gallery — the 
Hamburg Kunsthalle, no less — 
for their bicentenary show of the 
painter Caspar David Friedrich. 
Schwertsik has a slightly surreal 
sense of humour which leads 
inevitably to comparisons with 
Satie, an affinity neither to be 
exaggerated nor dismissed. His 
score is prefaced with an instruc- 
tion borrowed from C. D. Fried- 
rich: “ . . . these pictures are to 
be looked at to the accompani- 
ment of music.” 

Four pieces respectively titled 
" Hoqueius." “ Lied.” “ Nacht- 
stiick ” and “ Ostinato-Bordun ” 
alternate with “Fragments" oF 
varying length and degree of 
completion, thi- lasr of them u 
recent addition, not ending but 
breaking off. a musical equivalent 
more or less of painter's sketches 
of clouds, foliage, drapery or 
limb«. In spite of the visual 
affinities this is musician's music. 
Srhwemik is an experienced 
orchestral player: everything 
“sits” precisely and effectively, 
some obscure and muddy drone 
effects in the “ Ostinato-Bordun " 
sound as exactly calculated as 
anything else. 

Schwertsik was preceded on 
this occ ision by Webern's Five 
movements np. 5 and followed 
by Ligeti's String Quartet No. 2. 
These engrossing performances 
and the even more striking read- 
ing by the Canino-Ballista piano 
duo on the previous afternoon of 
Ligeti's Monument. Selbstpartrdl 
and Reicerpina. suggested the 
possibility that wc may be enter- 
ing a Hellenistic age of music 
with Webern as part-precursor^- 
a time of small-scale sophis- 
tication, subtle conceits and. 
stylistic amhivalence. The Ligeti 
two-piano pieces were especially 
taking, most of alt the one with 
great clappings and misplaced 
accents, like church bells beard 
through an unevenly revolving 

The Canino-Ballista recital also 
included Schubert's four-hand 
Divertissement A la Hongroise. 
of which, even with such good 
plavers. only the third move- 
ment fully deserves public as 
opposed to private performance. 


Coliseum 


The Bath Festivair 

Requiem 


and Cbabrier’s Souvenirs de 
Munich. This set of quadrilles 
of themes from Tristan is only 
apparently irreverent— a true 
satyr-play, the only way 
Chabrler's individuality could 
release the musical tensions 
set up by exposure to Wagner's 
masterpiece, at once so potently 
attractive to him yet so opposed 
in many respects to his own 
musical nature. 

On Wednesday at the early 
evening concert, the Lindsay 
Quartet gave the first perform- 
ance of Hugh Wood’s Quartet 
No. 3, a single-movement work 
assembled from short sections, 
the score signposted with un- 
attributed literary quotations 
(from Donne. Herbert and 
others. I gather). Though these 
indicate a basic programme of 
the winter-spring, darkness-light, 
grief-serenity kind, the differing 
moods in the music are not so 
much developed as set against 
one another. There are big 

gestures and big sonorities with 
geoerous use of arpeggios and 
widely - spaced accompaniment 
figures. The result, in a render- 
ing clearly devotedy prepared, 
was impressive but also, in the 
worm and heavily-resonant 
Assembly Rooms, oppressive. 
Further chances of hearing the 
work wilt surely come soon to 
sort things out. 

There was a single perform- 
ance on Tuesday evening by Rye 
String Opera of a double-bill— 
Pergolesi’s La serea padrona and 
Mozart's Per Schauaptcl-dtrcfcior. 
The company was presumably 
selected on account of the 
Dushkin Chamber Ensemble 
conducted by Michael Howard — 
playing rough in detail hut 
vigorous and full-blooded in 
acneral effect, producing in the 
Theatre Royal sonorities 
unattainable for example in the 
low-roofed auditorium at Glynde- 
boume. Both pieces were given 
with English recitative 
(Pergniesi) or dialogue (Mozart) 
with arias and ensembles in the 
original languages. Unfortun- 
ately the productions were arch 
in intention and cute in execu- 
tion. Of the singers the two 
men. Martyn Hill and Stephen 
Varcoe emerged with the most 
credit but that they were doing 
in this goitre, goodness knows. 

No such reservations were 
needed for Thursday’s big 
Mozart evening by the Monte- 
verdi Choir and Orchestra under 
John Eliot Gardiner in Wells 
Cathedral, pairing two great 
and dissimilarly incomplete 
works — the Mass in C minor and 
the Requiem. Strong perform- 
ances. well-judged For speed: 
Wells is good for sound as 
cathedrals go. but not foolproof. 
Hearing the two works one after 
the olher. the Requiem seems 
much the more consistent, the 
difference beiween the sublime 
and the merely grandly impos- 
ing parts of the Mass suggesting 
that Mozart did not complete 
the score because he was con- 
scious of the inequalities. 


by CLEMENT CRISP 


Fault's Requiem. written 
following the death of his 
father, may seem a gentle work 
when compared with the emo- 
tionalism of certain other set- 
tings. but its response to the text, 
to the religious matter of the 
mass for the dead, is no less 
serious. What MacMillan has 
done in his realisation of the 
score Is t° match at every point 
Fauri's refinement and subtlety 
of means: without bombast, or 
hysteria, or penitential wallow- 
ing, he finds images and streams 
of movement that treat with 
deepest sincerity of the hopes 
and fears we know in the face 

of death. 

I reported fully on the work 
at its Stuttgart premiere 18 
months ago. Now the Stuttgart 
Ballet has brought it to London, 
and it was seen in a triple bill 
on Friday night — or rather, 
partially seen, since Yolanda 
Sonnabend's settings were 
mauled, and the lighting was 
horrid. Despite this, the piece 
was given a magnificent inter- 
pretation by its original cast, and 
stood revealed as a major work 
of art. MacMillan has avoided 
anything that is conventionally 
or commercially pietistic — I have 
long treasured the memory of a 
staging of the Nun's chorus 
from Casanova in which a group 
of chorus girls dressed as nuns 
collapsed, white bouquets held 
on their backs, to make a cruci- 
form pattern uf black draperies 
and white blossoms, which is the 
sort of tosh ro stilt an audience 
with the beauty of religious 
feeling. 

MacMillan's procedure is 
totally other. Requiem opens 
with 50 dancers shuffling on 
stage at the Introitus. their 
mouths acape. fists beating 
heavenwards in a prayer for 
eternal rest: in the Qffenorium 
Richard Cragun— gloriously ex- 
pressive — cries for liberation 
from tbe deep pir and the lion's 
mouth, his body soarina in 
supplication and then curled in 
a knot supported on the ground 
by his hands. The most beauti- 
fal single moment in this 
beautiful hatlet is that when 
Marcia Haydee is borne on and 
curves down to Cra sun's body, 
touching him briefly on the 
shoulder in a Heeting gesture 
replete with hope. Haydee 
throughout incarnates the hone 
of heaven. To the inverted body 
of Birgit Keil in the Aanus Dei 
she appears yet again as the 
promise of pence: in the Pte Joku 
she has a solo of child-like 
innocence and trust: in the clos- 
ing In parndinnn a Ware of liohi 
shines on the assembled dancer;, 
and they leave ihe stase. walking 
in angelic couple';, or home out 
in high lift.';, with Haydee bliss- 
fully sailing in the arras of Reid 
Anderson and Crasun. 





Reid Anderson and Egon Madsen in 1 Requiem 


Mac Million's dance - language, 
which has found some of n» 
inspiration in the drawings or 
William Blake. Poses like those 
of the three boys at the words 
O Doinine in the Offertorium will 
be recognised by anyone who 
visits tbe Tate Gallery's Blake 
show. 

Requiem is a ballet that needs 

almost to stand by itself in a 
programme, so deep are the feel- 
ings it engenders, so powerful 
the performances its inspires 
from its admirable cast. Music- 
al lv rhe score went well under 
Stewart Kershaw oo Friday: the 
Ambrosian Singers were in fine 
voice, though 1 disliked both 
soloists- But when it comes to 
London again — or when Covent 
Garden summons up its courage 


and acquires ReQuicm for the 
Royal Ballet — Yolanda Sonna- 
be-nd's luminous setting must be 
seen in full: on Friday we were 
shown only three of the six 

translucent pillars that make up 
the design: and the ballet must 
be decently liL 

The resr of the programme 
brought our first view of choreo- 
graphy bv one of Stuttgart's new 
talents. William Forsythe's Flore 
is a young man's ballet, full of 
Balanehinesque fervour, to 
Handel concert! grossi. It is 
right that Forsjlbe should show 
that he can deploy dancers in 
plotless dances, and he also pro- 
vides excellent design for the 
piece. The pas de deux work 
is often over-complex, and the 
ballet is far too long, but 


Forsythe is □ fiuent step-maker, 
which is a good thing, and his 
dancers — notably his quartet of 
soloists: Annie Mayet and Lucia 
Montagnon, Barry Ingham and 
Kurt Speker — do him proud. 

About John Neumeier's Der 
Fall Homier (The Hnrniet Case I . 
also in the programme. 1 can 
record that Haydee. Cragun, 
Madsen. Anderson and Lucia 
Montagnon are all involved: that 
ir boasts a score by Aaron Cop- 
land having all the dulcet charm 
of a berserk steam-hammer: and 
that it merits the attention of 
the Koval Society for the Preven- 
tion of Cruelty to Audiences. The 
dance style is harsh: psyches 
rampage: characters are ga rotted 
between other character's thighs: 
maybe we are seeing Elsinore s 
team for It's a Knockout. 


Glyndebourne 


Don Giovanni 


Throughout, we can sense the 
freshness and potency of 


The revival of Don Giovanni 
in Peter Hall's now celebrated 
production (rehearsed by 
Stewart Trotter) brings another 
chance to admire the intelligence 
and perception uf the handling 
and. with the aid of John Bury's 
adaptable sets, the admirably 
continuous flow of the action. 
Also, and rather more strongly 
than before, the grim determina- 
tion of producer and designer to 
rid this opera of conventional 
Latin-country glamour. 

There is a new Giovanni, the 
American baritone Brent Ellis, 
h^ard last year as Ford in 
Falstuff. Mr. Ellis is an excellent 
singer with a compact, well- 
rnrmed voice and a gift for 
absolutely clear, rhythmically 
secure, rapid declamation (in- 
valuable for Giovanni's repanee 
and for the drinking song). There 
is so far not much range of 
colour: the singing never dis- 
appoints. but it produces no 
surprises. 

In appearance Mr. Brent abets 


the Northernisation of the set- 
ting, a snub-nosed Lieutenant 
more likely, one feels, to be lead- 
ing a commando raid than plot- 
ting seductions in Seville. A 
potentially dangerous customer, 
but not obviously marked down 
for Hell. Stafford Dean is back 
as Leporello. the mainspring 
(though Mr. Dean is anything 
but a selfish performer) of this 
cast with his command of the 
sta<>e. burnished voice and razor- 
sharp timing. There is a new 
Commendatore. Leonard Mroz 
from Poland, who would seem 
better still if one could forget 
Pierre Thau. But the most 
interesting of the newcomers is 
the Anna. Norma Sharp, an 
American soprano noticed last 
year at Bayreuth, shows achieve- 
ment as well a* promise in this 
assault-course of a role. And she 
brought the quality of surprise- 
one was not prepared for the 
sudden melting of her tone in 
the sextet. . . 

Kenneth Montgomery conduct-. 
(Nicholas Braithwaite takes ore.r 
later. With the aid of the 


London Philharmonic. Mr. Mont- 
gomery supplies some of the 
Southern languours missing un 
stage. They are worth it. even 
at the expense of some tauincss 
in ensemble. Others who return 
from one or other of the 19 n 
casts are Rosario Andrade 
(Elvira), Philip Langridgc- 
(Ottavio). Elizabeth Gale (Zer- 
lina) and John Rawnsley 
iMasetto). One development 
that is not an improvement is 
the back-lighting for the Act 2 
scene with Elvira. Giovanni and 
the disguised Leporello — last 
year one could see Leporello s 
features, now they are lost. But 
the lighting of the sextet, though 
it is a little fm«y. helps the 
action while maintaining the 
fiction of darkness On Friday 
the first-act quartet ’ Non tj 
fidar” unme as near the ideal 
fusion uf word, movement and 
music as one is likely to see— a 
long wav nearer than efforts 
dignified with the dread term 
“ music theatre "

To judge - by the applause. 
Luciano Pavarotti's numerous 
admirers, who filled coven t 
Garden to bursting point for the 
Italian tenor’s recital last night, 
would obviously have preferred 
their idol to no , thin5 n , b “ l 
operatic music by Verdi or Duni-

The- small orchestra plays 

devotedly for him. and if string

ecstasy usually reserved for pop 
singers, while less spectacular 
items or his programme, which 
gave equal or greater pleasure, 
did not rale nearly such tre- 
mendous ovations. 

In the group of classical 
Italian songs with which the 
recital opened. Gluck s “ Che 
fart senza Euridice?" was sung 
with too wide a vibrato, but in 
'* Che fiero costume.” a splen- 
didly ironic pie»'e on the destruc- 
tiveness of Cupid. from 
Legrenzi’s opera Eteoclc e 
Polmlce (1675). the tenor's elo- 
quent diction was admirably 
employed, while a genuine trill 
set fhc seal on his interpretation. 
Similarly, in the 19th-century 
songs that followed. Beethoven’s 
“In quests tomba oscura ” was 
overloaded with emotion, but the 
seamless line on which Mr. 
Pavarotti can thread his words 
when he wishes was in evidence 
both in Donizetti’s “11 barcaiolo" 
and Rossini's “La danza.” 

Two of Liszt’s three settings 
of Petrarch sonnets made up the 
surprise item of the programme. 
Their very wide range caused no 
difficulty to this singer, while a 
certain element of theatricality 
introduced by the composer was 
well suited tu Mr. Pavarotti s 
operatic altitude towards even 
the most introspective of song 
texts. But ii was perhaps in a 
group of songs by Tosli that style 
and content were most equally 
matched The sentiments of 
Aprile ” and '* Ideale.” sympa- 
thetically phrased hv a voice of 
such calibre, and accompanied 
with the discretion that John 
Wustman brought to the piano 
parts, can provide a genuine if 
transient thrill. Id “ Marechiare ” 
a more dramatic vocal line 
tempted the tenor to an over- 
indulgence in tremolo. 

Among the extracts from nine- 
teenth-century opera it was 
neither Alfredo's “ De’ roiei 
boilenti spiriti ” from La 
traeiaia.. which was sung with- 
out much involvement, nor 
Edgardo’s “Tombe degli avi 
miei” from Lucia, fully com- 
mitted. but unnecessarily loud, 
that deserved the most applause; 
more subtly phrased, interpre- 
ted with deeper insight and 
better disciplined in volume of 
tone, Nemorino’s “Una furtlva 
lagrima" from L’elisir d'amore. 
sting as an encore, rightly won 
that accolade. Here again 
musical content, vocal style and 
interpretative insight were 
balanced in proper proportions, 
and immediately a feat of show- 
manship became an artistic 
experience.

Novel gift 
for LSE research 

Th? major international com- 
panies have had their roles 
scrutinised by the UN and their 
activities frequently questioned 
in the Press. So when a major 
university accepts £2m from two 
such companies the inevitable 
question is whether this w4ll 
affect the direction of the uni- 
versity’s research. When I 
asked professors at the London 
School of Economics they said 
they too had been worried about 
this, but were certain that they 
had a no-strings gift in the

NOW 3^T &c_ elections are 
pari of history & mote favour- 
able business climate has settled 
over France. JPoliUeally Triince 
may now be - able. KrelDpk • for- 
ward to a ' period of some stabi- 
lity. However,' Tt 7s .debatable 
whether the ■ French' elections 
really had as-mueh of an effect 
on the property /narket some 
claim. Institutions, 'fctoich npr-. 

malty invest in property, prob- 
ably had few alternatives .but to 
continue investing' in France 
and individuals may well- have 
considered property as good a 
Pl* ce as any to invest. 

Sp investment may have suf- 
fered only a little in the run- 
up to the elections, but letting 
.was in worse straits. There was 
a clear downturn in -the letting 
market which was accompanied 
by. a reduction in the amount 
of -completed properties coming 
-into the market. 

However if politically France 
is now. looking on a firmer foot- 
ing the French economy has 
been slow to recover. Industrial 
production improved in 1976 
after -the fall in 1975 and last 
year saw a very unimpressive 
performance. 

Vet the analysis still talk of a 
continuing recovery. Foreign 
trade »as picked up and unem- 
ployment has declined, while 
the rate of inflation is not ex- 
pected to be much above the 
9 per cent of 1977. So the; 
economic background is' not 
gloomy. 

Explosion 

.Meanwhile the property 
market is finally , showing signs 
of having pulled itself out of 
the problems caused hy the 
over - enthusiastic development 
programmes of the early 1 970s. 
This property explosion,, which 
was largely British led, was 
caused by a number of overseas 
developers becoming hooked on 
the French markers potential. 
This resulted in a substantial, 
stock of properties 'and not 
surprisingly, wben the 1974 
recession came along a number 
of developers caught quite a 
cold. • ' ' r .. 

However, by and large, .this 
stock of .properties has now 
been taken up.. It is understood 
that the take-up of office space 
in the Paris area last year was 
around 700,000 squaro metres 
which was . we) l : ahead of the 
figures, recorded, for 1976 of 
590,000 .square: .‘metres^: Some 
agenti , w V nowj saying -teat 


there is a shortage of suitable 
investment properties. 

The most commonly quoted 
figure for the amount- of office 
space available around Paris is 
lm sq m. and this represents 
to a significant estunt properties 
in the new towns where the 
excess supply may lake a few 
years to disappear. . And. of 
course, the Paris area is by 
far the mast important for the 
property market 

A concentration of invest- 
ment in a country's capital is 
fairiy common weri.dwidc, but 
in France the centralised 
nature of business activities is 
far greater than In any other 
European country. 

.. The population of the Paris 
region is almost a ' fifth that 
of the entire country, so not 
surprisingly most of the com- 
mercial development in recent 
years has ’ been concentrated 
around Paris. - 

- This is not to say that other 
areas, such as the provincial 
cities and the ports, do not 
offer opportunities for invest- 
ment. But basically the Govern- 
ment’s pressures to decentralise 
have not created a significant 
movement away from the Paris 
area. Occupiers are reluctant 
to move out to the provinces 
and new towns, so obviously the 
investors will not go out of the 
centre unless they are con- 
vinced that the demand is there. 

Apart - from the centralised 
nature of the French property 
market there are also ji number 
of other fundamental differ- 
ences which distinguish it from 
say the IfK property market. 

Insurance companies are the 
most important single force in 
France. Yet oddly enough the 
pension funds do not play a 
major part in the property 
market as they do in most other 
European countries, particularly 
the UK. - . 

One of the most fundamental 
characteristics of .-.the French 
market is the rote played by 
the banks. These control the 
two leading property investment 
companies and ..also have 
influence over some . develop- 
ment companies . and estate 
agents. 

Robert Lipscorobe. a: partner 
in Jones ."Lang Waotton in 
France, recently cited a case to 
illustrate this point. *% . JLW 
acquired a scheme for. a UK 
investor from a Freni# lagent 
acting oil behalf ot a'deyelpper 
belonging to the same y banking 
gron& Part ortke scheme being 


subsequently resold to an 
investment subsidiary uf the 
same bunking gruup." 

As fur French property law 
this can be summed up very 
broadly by saying lhal land 
tenure is equivalent to freehold 
basis. Parts of a property 
which arc owned in a type of 
co-ownership can be equated to 
a form uf flying freehold, 
according lu agents Richard 
Ellis. 

Leaseholds are structured on 
a nine-year term and there arc 
break clauses for the tenant 
every three years. These break 
clauM'.t Coincide with rent 
reviews which take place every 
one or three years. Whether 
annually or every three years, 
rent reviews are based upun a 
published mnstructiim index, 
which shuwed a tut at rise uf 
under 8 per cent in 1977 com- 
pared with 14 per cent in 1976. 

In France, rent increases for 
residential premises are subject 
to government control. This 
year increases will be limited to 
6t per cent for revisions due 
before the beginning of next 
month ami to S5 per cent of the 
construction index for those 
falling due tn the second half 
of the year. 

Investment demand has been 
reasonably good over the past 
year — Dutch pension funds were 
evidently active in the latter 
half of 1977. Most of the 
interest is centred around com- 
mercial and industrial property 
where the prime yields are con- 
siderably higher than on resi- 
dential developments. 


networks influence these sites. 

The improvement in the ware- 
house investment market has 
not been marked. Though 
stocks of un let properties arc 
gradually being taken up there 
is still suBicient unlet space to 
deter most potential investors. 
There has not been much move- 
ment in rental levels over the 
past year and broadly speaking 
yields are in the region of lb 
to 12 per cent. 

Historically shop rents have 
been protected and ownership 
of freeholds do not ch:iiUL- 
much. So there has not been 
a lot of interest for investors in 
shopping areas apart from a few

likened to Brent Cios>s in the 
UK. Certain uf the develop- 
ments have been ryj<} 3 s invest- 
ments but pre-.Mirc-j from 
traders in the central area have 
curtailed the growth of thi* area 
of the market. 

How docs the overseas inves- 
tor fit in? Tin-, is obviously 
difficult to judge hut it has been 

estimated that foreign invest- 
ment accounts for about id per 
cent of the woperty market. 
However. The French cxerct-sc

mean that foreign comp-urc- nr

only allowed where there is 
joint ownership and tins is

the French partner?:. 

It was lu a certain extent to 
protect the market from any 
adverse effects of cutting out 
some overseas investment that 
the Government came up with 
Ihe “ Plan Barr?" in 1976. This 
earmarked Government funds 
for use in aiding house construc- 
tion. industrial properties and 
public sector construction. This 
policy is still important for the 
property market.

Slow return of 
confidence 


Yields 


As we have seen, take-up oF 
office space has been increasing 
in the Paris area, and probably 
most investors will agree that 
the market now offers very few 
bargain buys. Office yields in 
Paris in the central area are 
mainly around 8 per cent while 
some of the top properties are 
nearer 7 per cent. Suburban 
offices offer a little better with 
prime yields of around 9 to 10 
per cent. However, with the 
possibility of a shortage of office 
space in the centi-al areas, rental 
levels could harden, unless there 
are any significant increases in 
supply. 

Turning to industrial proper- 
ties the main areas around Paris 
are. in the north between the 
capital and Roissy airport and 
in the south around Orly, air- 
port. Obviously communication 


CONFIDENCE IS returning tu 
the property market in West 
Germany but it is a slow process. 
The key influence is dearly 
economic activity which remains 
sluggish along with the world 
trend and at this stage lew 
observers are prepared tu 
predict the actual liming of the 
next upsurge in the property 
cycle. 

Where they can be pin- 
pointed, overall patterns suggest 
that the mood among investors, 
developers and estate agents is 
one of cautious optimism. The 
market has been stable for some 
months and there is a growing 
concensus that the bottom has 
been reached. At the same 
time, the West German 
economy, although flat, remains 
one of the strongest in the 
world. 

Like so many property 
markets in Europe, that in 
Germany is plagued by a lack of 
official statistics ur any reliable 
guide to market momentum. 
Difficulties in appraisal also 
arise from the fragmented 
nature on the market with 
activity spread among no less 
than six major cities — Hamburg.

Location 


Given its nongraphic local inn 
at the centre uf Germany, ir>- 
status as th»* ‘.nuntry s banking 
capital and ii- major airport. 
Frankfurt g perhaps ihe prime 
area for office development, t ine 
of the band of UK developers 
active in Germany. Slough 
Estates, reckons its modest, 
12,000 sq rt development in the 
city could soon be largely let. 


having stood empty since its 
completion at the end of last 
year. 

According to Slough, whose 
lixed assets in Europe now 
amount tu abuut an eighth of 
the group total, the market in 
industrial property in Germany 
has been holding level for tunic- 
six to nine months. The com- 
pany recently acquired an addi- 
tional six acres uf land adjacent 
to its Cologne site on which it 
win build a complex of some 
65.000 $q ft before the end of 
1H7S (65 per cent of the pro- 
perty is pre-let). 

One uf the attractions of 
Germany to a group like Slough 
is the favourable cost of money. 
Rates of interest may have 
hardened marginally in recent 
weeks — partly due to the unset 
nf the summer tax paying sea- 
son — hut the economics of bor- 
rowing in Germany are probably 
the must favourable in the 
world. Swaziland apart. Dur- 
ing Jbe first quarter uf 1978 
mortgage lending by the savings 
institutions was running almost 
40 per cent up un 19* «: and the 
major commercial banks, which 
were hit especially hard by bad 
debts following the property 


crisis of 19711 an<| 1974, have 
recently been edging up then* 
facilities tu mortgages l| f 
between 60 per cent ami 70 
per cent. 

In the eyes :.f the majur 
i estate agents the property mar- 
ker in Germany has already 
| begun to recover. Weathers! 1 
. Green and Smith cite tne aefive- 
jness uf UK institutions as well 
:as a strong retail market, while 
[Jones Lang and U'uotton reckon 
to have noticed a steady return 
of confidence over the past 12 
| months. 

! Wealherall puinis out although 
j UK institutional activity is rela- 
; lively modest in terms of the 
| overall market in Germany, a 
j growing number of transactions 
are being carrii-U out mostly 
I with UK developers and ihe 
"trend is continuing." The 
agents see the Dutch, who 
appear (n be •'witching Iheir 
concentration uf funds away 
from the Du*>H«iurf conurba- 
tion and ulher cities m the Ruhr 
as among the most active 
foreign institutions. 

Commenting un the office 
market in Frankfort, Weather- 
all says that Him over-supply 
position is mostly concentrated 
outside ihe centre of the city- 
The bulk or the 400,000 or so 
square metres of office accom- 
modation thought to be over- 
hanging the market is mostly 
found in the new offices areas, 
like Nicderrad and Eschbum 
and in certain large lower 
blocks on the periphery of the 
city. " It is. o completely dif- 
ferent si tu at inn in the main 
banking centre, especially in the 
Innenstadt where there has been 
a constant demand fur new 
fellings.” 

A good illustration of this 
can be seen in ihe I'.fC. lower 
where the agents were involved 
in letting some 12.000 square 
metres of accommodation some 
.months before the block was 
completed. In such prime, air- 
conditioned space rents have in 
certain instances moved up to 
DM 27 per square metre, and 
have been even higher for snidil 
areas. 

The agents see ihe industrial 
market as remaining quiet. They 
point out that attractive interest 
rates have meant «hat the pre- 
ponderance of German industry 
wishing to invest tn new 
premises will ihcso days tend 
to build its own accommodation 
rather ihan lease. As a result 
very few speculative industrial 
schemes are being carried nut. 
Conversely the retail market 
has " remained firm." Despite 
the prevailing Jujfgiyhnev? of 
the official retail sales statistics 
in Germany, the country's 
retailers show none r.f the 
caution of their industrial 


brothers. Shop expansion is 

widespread. 

Jones Lang and IV nor Lin inane 
the point that growing difficul- 
ties m obtaining e’ann’ng con- 
sents for certain types of retail 
property have helped in wnie 
ways iu enliven this market. 
This is especially relevant in 
areas like hypermarkets where 
the rapid development uf the 
past decade is now slowing to 
q trickle, institutions are now 
bey inn in.' lu invest in this 
seetur v. iier.-as previously the 
market was dominated by the 
private investor. 

Without any doubt, however, 
ihe must sought after types of 
investment are pure office 
investments and shops, ur 
mixed shops and offices, pro- 
vided the location is good. 

Speculative 

Investor interest is by nn 
means I i mi red tu what might 
he regarded as first-class 
locations. Bmh property funds 
and insurance companies are 
prepared tu purchase pruperry 
in relatively secondary areas 
provided yield values are 
favourable. 

Stimulated by the interest 
rale structure in Germany 
which is now at its lowest fur 
sumeihing like 20 years, the 
demand for quod investment 
prepositions U considerably in 
excess' of supply. For this 
reason, the agents suggest, 
institutions are beginning to 
turn lu mure speculative situa- 
tions such as Lite purchase of 
empty bidding*, forward com- 
mitment purchases and in some 
cases, development. It is clear, 
however, lhal not all German 
institutions are tins daring. 

The major investors in Ihe 
commercial property market in 
Germany are the insurance com- 
panies and the closed and open- 
ended real estale funds. Both 
invest un a national basis. Pen- 
sion funds also invest in 
property but their activities are ‘ 
limited by size since the private 
pension fund industry in 
Germany is relatively small. For 
obvious reasons the private 
individual will tend to concen- 
trate on i he smaller end of the 
market. 

The open-ended property 
funds lu emerge intact from • 
the recession are once more be- 
ginning lu flex their buying 
muscles. In the past huth the 
closed and open-ended funds 
have tended not to differentiate 
between investment in residen- 
tial and commercial property: 
they now show a marked prefer- 
ence for the commercial end 
•if the market where there is no 
rental control.

ANY REVIEW of the property 
situation in the Republic of 
Ireland begins and virtually 
ends in tbe Dublin area — but 
not quite. The country can be 
divided into three parts — Dub- 
lin, the south and the rest. 
Activity is picking up in the 
south of the country, hut the 
rest remains virtually un- 
changed. It is in the Dublin area 
where it is all happening and 
there is much that is going on. 

Activity in properly is always 
very much tied in with the state 
of the country's economy. The 
Irish economy has turned round 
from the depressed situation 
and there is an air of increased 
confidence. This has resulted in 
the demand for office accommo- 
dation stepping up considerably, 
much coming from Government 
requirements, and the supply 
is just not there. 

All prime office space has now 
been taken up and the demand 
has resulted in rents exceeding 
£4 per square font, a level long 
regarded as being the upper 
limit for rents. Mr. Michael 
Lucey, the property investment 
manager of Irish Life, the larg- 
est financial institution in the 
Republic, reports that all 6pace 
in the Irish Life Centre has 
now been let, much of it at 
rents above £4. He confirms that 
there is very little space coming 
onto the market — and only 
50,000 square feet of new space 
in the pipeline. 


able, neither is it accepted by 
the authorities. The demand 
is now for much smaller 
h I ocks. no mo re than 50.000 
sq ft with smaller parking 
facilities and the authorities 
are imposing certain obliga- 
tions for residential develop- 
ment in planning permissions. 
One objective is to avoid the 
blight seen in other countries 
of massive office development 
in town centres with decay in 
the residential areas that once 
occupied the sites. 

This means that many de- 
velopers are seeking new plan- 
ning permission based on the 
current style. Once this has 
been obtained then develop- 
ment can go ahead again to 
meet this growing demand. 
Irish Life has applied for new 
permission for its High School 
site in Harcourt Street in 
Dublin. Originally it was 
planned to have a iaree office 
block on the site with parkin? 
space. Now this ha?, been 
changed to a series of smaller 
blocks — about 40.000 sq ft with 
smaller parking accommoda- 


half as high again as the 
average footage occupied over 
the last 15 years. 

Dublin and its surrounding 
area is also the centre of indus- 
trial development in the 
Republic. The Government is 
pledged both to get inflation 
down welt into single figures 
and to reduce the level of un- 
employment On the first count 
it looks likely to keep inflation 
at T per cent but the second 
pledge is more difficult to ful- 
fil. The Industrial Authority, 
a Government agency, is buying 
land to encourage foreign com- 
panies into Ireland. But the 
activity is intense From the pri- 
vate institutions for industrial 
development. 

The city has always been 
inadequate in providing ade- 
quate shopping facilities for the 
population it serves. Irish Life 
has a development scheme in 


Moore Street, including a 
covered mall plus car park and 
200,000 square foot of shopping 
space. The project is estimated 
to cost in the region of £15na to 
£20m. Rents of £30 per square 
foot are now obtainable in 
Henry Street. 


In the south. Cork is now 
occupying a lot of attention. 
The entry in the EEC has meant 
prosperity for Ireland's farming, 
community and the benefits 
have come through most to the 
fanners in the South. The area 
has become prosperous on this 
account alone. , 

But now is added the pros- 
pects of oil being discovered on 
this part of the coast and the 
speculators have started to move 
into the area in anticipation, of. 
an oil boom. Cork could become 
another Aberdeen if the hopes 
of oil are realised. Already it 
has become difficult to get pro- 



perty in Cork Itself. A new 
office block built for Friends* 
Provident Life was recently 
topped out in Cork, providing 
16.000 square feet of office space. 

Finally, the remainder of the 
country sees very little change, 
the main activity being centred 
in Limerick around the Shan- 
non and the industrial area 
development adjoining the air- 
port. Although there has been 
considerable development, the

Massive 


Modern office development be- 
gan on a massive scale in Dub- 
lin during the early 1960s- Since 
then nearly 5m square feet has 
been built But until recently, 
supply and demand has re- 
mained more or less in balance, 
until the recent upsurge re- 
sulted in demand far outstrip- 
ping supply. The main reason 
for this arises from a change in 
attitude towards the type of 
development that is acceptable, 
including a new outlook from 
the authorities. 

Much of the planning per- 
mission already granted was 
for the old style monster crea- 
tions of 100,000 sq ft or more 
with massive car parking facili- 
ties incorporated in the de- 
velopment. This type of 
property is no longer market- 


in residential property, unlike 
most LUC financial institutions 
which eschew such investments. 

But it is held in the main life 
fund of the company, not in any 
specialist property or mixed 
funds.

The outlook for tourist prop- 
erty development, now of such 
significance in many East 
European countries, is difficult 
to assess. 

Much of the success of 
tourist development must rest 
upon relative cost which at 
root is the major attraction or 
repeflant For the package tourist 
on whom such developments 
rely. 


of economic growth in the coun- 
try has of necessity thrown the 
bulk of investment into the 
industrial sector. Bat there are 
indications that this bias has 
eased over the past couple of 
years. This has meant further 
concentration on agricultural 
land, which contributes about 
one third of the Gross National 
Product Current plans are for 
an increase of 20 per cent in 
agricultural production, with an 
increase of sorne;^ 400,000 
hectares in irrigated farmland. 

Developments in the tourist 
sector, however, will clearly 
play a major role in property 
activity. The State Committee 
for Tourism is laying great 
stress in the coming five-year, 
period on developments in the 
Black Sea areas, where it sees 
a growing - demand from 
Scandinavia and West European 
countries based upon the attrac- 
tions of the climate.- 

On the coast there are planr. 
to extend the existing material 
facilities and tourist infra- 
structure. But perhaps the 
most interesting developments 
will come in the hinterland. 


One possibly significant 
development for the future 
has been East Germany’s suc- 
cess in attracting a loan of 
$22m from an Arab syndicate. 
While not large in itself .the 
loan is thought to be the pilot 
project for much larger loans. 
In view of the evident - desire 
for further industrial expansion 
in East Germany, the Arab loan 
will raise hopes of further 
lucrative contracts over the next 
few years. . . 

The prospect of economic re- 
forms in Hungary has opened 
up valuable opportunities for 
the West in terras of property 
developments, especially as 
these opportunities will cover 
a wider Tange than, the purely 
industrial sector. • ■ •• 

■ A meeting last Summer of the 
UK-Hungarian Joint Commis- 
sion spotlighted ‘several areas 


in which Western, and specif 
cally UK co-operation would- He 
welcomed. A major opportunity' 
may be the building of a new 
Budapest airport. But plans for 
an irrigation project in the 
Tisza region and also agricul- 
tural development elsewhere in 
the country will also play a pro- 
minent part in developments in. 
the. immediate future. 

It may safely be said then 
that there are still. many oppor- 
tunities : for development in 
East Europe, despite the general 
recession. The liveliest pros- 
pects for the immediate future 
will probably remain, in the 
industrial field. But the success 
of.. Western hotel and- tourist 
groups V in ' helping; - .to' develop 
tourist oporttznitles - suggests 
that the. longer tenn^pos&SbQl- 
ties may lie in this direction.

. Greece or North Africa, 
i The inability of the South of 
J Italy to share in tins world 
i tourism phenomena has been 
s one of the most disappointing 
p features of tiie past decade. 

Property speculation in the 

s South, and there was plenty of 
e that in the sixties, concentrated 
r on optimistic commercial pros- 
•- peels in I he major towns. Such 
s developments have been largely 
f halted by the general recession 
s- in the economy. Outside Naples 
e or the Sorrento peninsula there 
n is still a lack of impetus fur 
n tourist development which 

r- could do much to revive 

d property development. 

r- An underlying problem for 
Q- the properly sector remains that 
f. of persuadiug Italians, who are 
^ among the world’s greatest 
savers, to take a direct interest 
rs in property investment. Per- 
ly sonal savings continue to follow 
ie die traditional path into bank 
of deposits — more than 50 per 
>r cent of personal savings of 
>n L64.063bn went that way in 
1975. With share ownership 
as playing an almost non-existent 
re role in personal savings, this 
le has left the banks on their own 


in providing finance for pro- 
perty — as they do largely for 
industry. 

This faclor may have serious 
implications for the latest hopes 
of reviving the construction — 
and thus Ihe property — in- 
dustry. There are believed 10 
he firm proposals to extend the* 
official control of insurance 
company investment in order in 
direct a major share of such 
investment towards popular 
housing. 

At present insurance company 
investment is directed towards 
permitted investments including 

Government bonds and pro- 
perly. But property investment 
has become less attractive since 
rent restriction has curbed the 
rate of return. There are now. 


it is understood, proposals in 
the offing by which minimum 
and maximum lending limits for 
each investment category may 

be iwp°*eri.

SOUTH AFRICA 


WHAT WOULD in belter days 
have been a momentous occa- 
sion in the South African 
property market has come anti 
gone with hardly a ripple, in 
April the Government at last 
announced the beginning of the 
dismantling of the country s -m- 
year-old rent control apparatus. 
The property industry had 
lobbied hard for this, thumping 
away at the standard Jirgumenis 
about how control distorts the 
market and how its ahuliuan 
would lead 10 more confidence 
on the part of residential 
developers and consequently to 
more residential building. 

The decision to do away with 
rent control was loudly hailed, 
bur has had little real effect in 
the market place — no marked 
upturn in residential building, 
no stampede to buy up old rent- 
controlled blocks of flats. 

In part that may be because 
of the phased nature of the 
de-control measures lover five 


years with rent increases hnstied 
tu Id per v.-nt a year for 
two year.-, for oe-controllvd 
premises I, hut liter j is another 
and more tunda mental reason 
for the slow rend ion. It is 
simply that Hie property market 
is in its wor-t sluipe since tne 
depression 01 the Linrtie*. 

The residential market one 
of the worst hit ?edors. Except 
in civil servant-packed Pretoria, 
there are vacant flats all over 
ihe country. In .lonune*hurg a

THE U.S. 


INTERNATIONAL PROPERTY 









but not booming 


BEYOND A shadow nf a doubt 
the U.S. real e.staie market is 

pulling strongly out of thn re- 
cession which reached its nadir 
at the end nf 1974. On the 
other hand the climate is nnt 
ail set fair pointing towards a 
boom. 

In fact the present stale of 
play is a hotch-potch of conflict- 
ing indicators. For instance, 
over the past two years over- 
seas investors have been flock- 
ing to put money into American 
real estate. One recent estimate 
puts the value of money 
invested over this period by 
foreigners at Slbn. spearheaded 
by Canadian commitments, 
closely followed hv German 
investment and then Dutch. 
Mexican, British and Japanese 
tlhe larter particularly on the 
Wi.-bt Coast). 

Now. one of the main atlra*> 
tions for overseas investors has 
been the relatively high level 
nf yields on prime properties, in 
comparison with the European 
Continent, for instance. In 
recent months, however, that 
attraction has begun to be 
eroded. Free and clear yields 
on prime properties (over and 
above debt financing) have 
come down to between 6 and 7 
per eenl.. compared with well 
over 8 per cent two years ago. 

One of the factors in this 
movement has been the increas- 
ing — and still relatively new — 
competition for investment 
properties from the native 
institutions. Until a couple of 
years ago these institutions did 
not invest much in real estate. 
Sometimes their articles uf 
association actually barred them 
from this investment medium, 
but more generally the? pre- 
ferred tu build up more liquid 
assets. By about 1974 there 
was widespread evidence that 
the funds were seriously con- 
sidering changing their views. 
They had begun to react favour- 
bly to property'.? attractions as 

hedge against inflation. 

At about this time, however, 
Lhc banks' more traditional 
nvnlvement in property, by way 
if mortgage financing through 
Real Estate Investment Trusts 
(REITs) was turning distinctly 
sour on them, and this pul a 
brake un a natural inclination lo 


further property commitments 
by way of ownership of invest- 
ment properties. 

The institutions a 1 e still not 
large enough to dominate the 
market and in many eases their 
investment is still not much 
more than tentative. The pen- 
sion funds, for instance, have 
only recently been permitted 
by law to add properties 10 
their investment portfolios and 
so, by comparison with the I'K 
or Holland, for instance, their 
property assets are still minor. 
The largest manager) com- 
mingled fund, for instance, is 
claimed to he that run by lhc 
Tru.it Department of Fir?t 
National Bank of Chicago. At 
the end nf last year its portfolio 
consisted of 40 properties worth 
8130m. 


Trend 


The natural momentum indi- 
cated by the new trend towards 
institutional investment, how- 
ever, would soon sec such 
figures quadrupled even if the 
funds chose lo put only a minor 
percentage of their new money 
into property. But it is possible 
that there will be a check to 
this momentum in the next few 
man tiis as the residual p ml denis 
of the REITs raise their heads 
again. 

At the beginning nf last 
month the Chase Maithacan 
Mortgage and Really Tru.-i 
announced that it could not find 
the cash to repay $36.7m of 
borrowings. Although this had 
heen one of the heavier hu 
REITs during the 1974 collapse, 
it had always been regarded as 


secured by its relationship with 
Chase Manhattan Bank. In fact, 
it appears that the bank has no 
liabilities as far as the REIT is 
concerned and is only one of a 
couple of dozen banks who are 
owed $150m by the REIT. 

Last month's announcement is 
likely tu revive fears about 
initial financing of new develop- 
ments. Most of the REITs who 
collapsed in 1974 were involved 
with shurt-term construction and 
development lending rather 
than long-term equity financing. 
That could, in turn. lead to a 
hiccup in the supply of such 
finance 3t a time when now 
building is just beginning to 
start up again. 

Since the turn of the year 
there have been the first signs 
that developers are satisfied 
that the significant overhang of 
.space on the market since the 
boom building period oF the 
early 1970s is now sufficiently 
absorbed lo warrant new 

schemes. 

One indication of tit is new 
revival of interest in develop- 
ment — ami involving an over- 
seas company at that, and one 
known for its caution — is the 
office scheme in Chicago in 
which the British firm Slough 
Estates is to take a 15 per cent 
slake. The plan is for 800.000 
square feet of offices in the 
heart of the financial sector of 
Chicago, which will cost £32m. 
This deal is already financed, 
through a 82-year fixed interest 
mortgage front rhe New Yurfc 
Life Insurance group. Slough’s 
own equity commitment will 
only he a quarter -uf the 
development partners' SlUra 


equity. The other major partner 
is the U.S. firm Draper and 
Kramer, and some 15 per cenr 
of the space is already pre let 
at around SL3 a foot. 

The funding arrangement for 
the scheme is in the. true tradi- 
tion of U.S. real estate mort- 
gages. But there are signs that 
cracks are appearing in this 
tradition. In recent months a 
number of deals have been 
signed up in which the funding 
bank or institution has inserted 
a revision clause 'somewhere 
about the middle of • the ’mort- 
gage (normally between 20 and 
30 years duration) permitting 
them to increase the mortgage 
rate at least once during the 
term of the mortgage. 

Behind this trend lies the 
recent volatility of interest 
rates in the U.S. On May 26 
prime rates reached a three- 
year high of 81 per cent, the 
second increase in a month and 
a 40 per cent increase from the 
low of 6 per cent, at the end of 
1976. At the end of last year 
mortagage money was available 
for property developments at 
around 9J-9| per .cent. On that 
basis typical cash-on-cash 
returns were around 7 per cent 

Although rents in the major 
centre? have been improving 
over the past >ear the growth 
does not appear to have been 
such as to allow developers 
easily 10 absorb this probable 
full point increase in finance 
costs. 

This partial inhibition to new 
developments comes at a time 
when the popularity charts for 
types of property are; in any 
case, changing, and local 


developers are feeling their 
way into new types of schemes. 
There is. for instance, a marked 
move away from residential 
development which was tradi- 
tionally the most popular type 
of building. Both condominiums 
and residential estates are being 
affected by this change. 

Hie prime area -for residen- 
tial estates has been the 
subarban fringes of urban areas. 
Over the past couple of years 
both the newly awakened 
energy consciousness of U.S. 
citizens and authorities, and 
some degree of evidence for the 
adoption of rent control regula- 
tions ■ by tiie authorities, has 
made new estates on these lines 
look less of a secure loug-term 
investment, than formerly. 

Condominia 

As far as condominia. are 
concerned the simple problem 
is a market related one: there 
is still an oversupply of such 
space. According to a recent 
report from estate agents, 
Richard .Ellis, some of the 
slack has been taken up by a 
resurgence of shopping centre 
construction. The firm points 
out. however, that the emphasis 
has been on neighbourhood and 
community centres, “as most 
areas have reached a saturation 
point for regional shopping.” 

- One other factor which may 
be a reason for this trend 
towards centres with a pedes- 
trian orientation rather than 
the traditional car-centred 
schemes, could also be energy 
consciousness, although it- is

.Richard Ellis also notes that, 
by contrast, there is a lower

Apparently, supply of such- 
premises is moire than, adequate 
in most centres to meet .exist- 
ing moderate demand.

APART FROM oH. the com- £5 ™' -rw '**’'•’** i..- • 
modity Cha-t the Middle East is 
not short of as entrepreneurs. i: 

They abound and the kind of 
skills which British developers 
have used with such remark- r<r ~ 
able effect elsewhere in the 
world are in every-day use in 
tfee Middle East. 

The skills which are in great 
demand throughout the Arab 
world are those of the pro- 
fessions closely connected with 
the construction industry, such *&, 
as civil engineers, architects £• 
and quantity surveyors. Because L; 
generally the British profes- £ - 
sums provide a wider and . 

better service than their Euro- 
pean and Japanese competitors 
it had been assumed, that they 
would get the lion's share of * 

profitable work in the Middle FA»i 
. East. 

But many appear to have 
been missing out recently on 

the concept of consultancy work £ 

which is gaining favour with 
Middle East clients, where a 
consultant defines the para- 
meters of a project and leaves 
the design work to a contractor 
who quotes on a turnkey basis. 

Nevertheless, invisible earnings 
by UK engineering consultants 
in the Middle East amounted to 
around £130m in 1977. 

The giant UK construction 
groups, which are large even 
by North American standards, 
are carrying out vast schemes 
throughout the Middle East, 
work which they get in fierce 
competition with other con- 
tractors from places as far 
afield as South Korea, Japan 
and India, hut they cannot be 
considered to be in the premier 
league. The structure of the UK 
construction industry appears to 
be against them when in com':

Trade union amalgamations 
involve \the submerging and 
compromising of long historical 
traditions to at least as 
great an extent as when 
old-established companies 
merge, and they are seldom 
easily accomplished. Agree- 
ment among union leaders that 
a merger would be a good thin a 
is of little value if their 
members have always had con- 
flicting interests at local level- 

The logic of amalgamations 
is, perhaps, most .easily under- 
stood when unions representing 
different grades of employee in 
a single industry - discuss the 
advantages of coming together 
— the thinking behind the 
current talks to create a single 
union for the printing industry. 
D'.scussions in', this ' Industry 
have not been without their 
difficulties: the original time- 
table has already been extended 
and the severe demarcation dis- 
putes for which the industry is 
notorious, plus the unsuccessful 
outcome of previous amalgama- 
tion attempts,' do nojt guarantee 
a successful conclusion. On the 
other, hand a common challenge 
(.some regard it as “ the 


enemy”) in the shape of huge 
technological changes, and the 
sirong personal belief of rhe 
print union leaders in the need 
to create one union for the 
industry, hold out some hop*?. 

Matters become more compli- 
cated when, rather than two or 
three single industry unions 
coming together as equals, a big 
union is seeking to attract a 
smaller organisation in an area 
nf common interest. Here the 
issue js inevitably seen as a take- 
over raihcr than an amalgama- 
tion in the pure sense of the 
word and two or three large 
unions can sometimes be com- 
peting in woo a particularly 
nubile partner. 

The Boilermakers is such an 
example. It would be difficult to 
exaggerate the sense of horror 
with which leaders of the 
Amalgamated Union of Engin- 
eering Workers learned a year 
ago thi .1 this prestige craft 
union, which they had long seen 
as a natural ally, was talking 
’« Mr. Basnett at the UMWIJ. 
Six years ago the AUEW's 
dream of creating one union for 
the engineering industry suf- 
fered a serious blow when thu 
largely unskilled Transport and 
General Workers Union beat it 
tn a merger with the National 
Union of Vehicle Builders. Loss 
of the Boilermakers to another 
general workers union would 
shatter for ever the ideal of 
one engineering union. 

Mr. Hugh Scanlon and his 
colleagues at tlv* AUEW havp 
been spared humiliation, at 
least temporarily, by ihe dele- 
gates to the Boilermakers con- 
ference. In spite of impressive 
efforts by the Boilermakers’ 
executive to convince their 
members that the widely held 
view of the GMWU as no more 
than a union for unskilled 
public sector workers was 
■■ hopelessly inaccurate and out- 
dated " the conference called off 


amalgamation talks largely for 
this reason. White the full-time 
Boilermakers' executive, who 
might be thought to have the 
most to lose in terms of indepen- 
dence. unanimously recommen- 
ded continuation of the merger 
talks the craft jealousies of 
delegates proved too strong-— 
vividly summed up in one 
motion describing the GJTWU 
as predominantly representing 
“ gas workers, dustbin men, 
road sweepers and other local 
council workers." 

Many Boilermakers members, 
particularly left-wingers, would 
prefer an amalgamation with 
the AUEW. and Ihe engineer- 
ing uuion renewed us 
approaches only days after the 
conference decision. This doe? 
not, however, appeal to ihe 
Boilermakers' executive which 
dislikes both the unsatisfactory 
slate of the existing AUEW 
and the sharply divided politics 
of the union. 

The executive also believes 
that it is unhealthy for 
democracy in the trade union 
and Labour movement “ for too 
much power to reside in the 
hands of too few giant com- 
binations." a tendency which 
an amalgamation with the 
AUEW would entourage. It is 
therefore possible that the 
Boilermakers’ leaders will test 
the GMWU amalgamation pro- 
posal in a ballnl of their whole 
membership before abandoning 
thp idea. 

What make* an old-established' 
and industrially powerful union 
like the Boilermakers contem- 
plate amalgamation at ail? It 
i. - ; nut that unions of the Boiler- 
makers’ size— or smaller — are 
necessarily unvlable. but it 
becomes increasingly expensive 
and difficult for them to provide 
the facilities for research, shop 
steward training. specialist 
officials and other back-up ser- 
vices which the bigger unions 
offer. As the Boilermakers’ 


executive said in a document 
explaining its decision to seek 
amalgamation, “ trade union 
power and influence can now 
be brought to bear on decision- 
making at plant, company, 
regional and national Level on 
industrial planning in a way 
never before possible." 

It would be possible, said the 
executive, to remain aloof from 
these developments and continue 
to rely exclusively on the 
union's strength and intelligence 
at the bargaining table, but to 
do this at a time when other 
unions were “forging ahead m 
exploiting the new opportuni- 
ties” would not be rhe bi«t way 
to serve the membership. 

The. question of a hat ha opens 
after an .amalgamation depends 
very much upon the parent 
union's structure. A merger 

sometimes invoK-.-s a change oi 
name and adoption of a different 
form of organisation: the Boiler- 
makers and GMWU were think- 
ing of a completely new union 
with some clear departure- from 
existing GMWU orgum.-alion.

Mr. Frank Chappie"? Elec-

began talks with the AUEW. It 


was not the first time that these 
two union? had looked at the 
idea of partnership though the 
two unions hud previously failed 
to reach an agreement. The mes- 
sage this time. hiAvc.er. is that 
:he talks are going ■.veil. Hurdles 
are plentiful. The AUEW is 
organised geographically and 
the EPTU industrially, the 
former union U devoted to the 
periodic re-election of officials, 
both have quire different 
decision-making conferences and 
the EPTU has a ben nn Com- 
munist official* while the 
AUEW’s TASS section is led 
by one. 

Gradual Jy. J hough. the 
obstacles are being overcome 
2 nd ihe chances of success are 
*lumi!aled by ihe ejection of 

Mr. Terry Duffy, a staunch 
believer in ihe EPTU merger, 
to tm- Al’EW pre.-jik-m-y. For 
iiis part Mr. Chippie thinks 
such an amalgamation would uu 
important in producing a 
counterbalance to ihe power of 
the TGWl’. which lias more 
ihan 2 m members and is still 
growing. Mr. Duffy, Mr 
Chappie and Mr. John Boyd — 
ihp A L'EW's general secretary 
— hold similar politico! beliefs 
to the Right of the trade union 
movement, and a L*m strong 
union led by such men would 


be a tremendous force through- 
out Labour polities. 

The potential implications of 
the birth of such a creature 
have nor gone unnoticed in the 
existing AUEW. Mr. Ken Gill, 
Communist general secretary of 
TASS and his colleagues are, 
to put it mildly, nf a different 
■political persuasion to Mr. 
Chappie- To make the EPTU 
merger feasible the AUEW has 
In overcome its existing amal- 
gamation difficulties and the 
absorption of TASS and its 
elected officials is at the centre 
nf these. No one is going to 
give ground easily. 

At its recent conference 
TASS accepted the use of the 
1964 Trade Union Amalgama- 
tions Act to try to overcome 
some of the barriers to a com- 
plete merger with the engineer- 
ing section, hut — worried about 
possible future constitutional 
chances to accommodate the 
EPTU — insisted that the law

an informative 

"Supppl"ts - these PV°”_ 


From Mr. Richard Copley -Smith 
: Sir.-^-in his call for more 
government research. Professor 
Freeman rightly stresses the 
enormity of the!** microprocessor 
revolution " (May 24). 

But when an academic scien- 
tist .calls for policy reviews, is 
there: riot a danger that the rest 
of us may be lulled into feeling 
that, .change, however, funda- 
mental, is still a comfortable 
distance in the future ? 

..it is-not. American, German. 
French., Italian. Japanese — and 
some British — products alreadv 
feature microprocessors. Not just 
jn . rdmote scientific, medical "or 
technological applications. Nor 
just ephemera like ftobbj’ com- 
putdrs, smart door chimes or TV 
games. But in ordinary, every- 
day-consumer durables such as 
washing machines. sewing 
machines, vacuum cleaners, hair 
dryers- power tools, ovens, lawn- 
mowers, cars and central heating 
controls. Almost any product 
wbleb runs on electricity or has 
a. motor could probably be im- 
.proyed with a microprocessor. 

■ The new.products are coming 
ou"!stream now. Nowhere, was 
tins more aoparent than. At the 
Am eri c an Design Engineering 
SboW jtrst ended in Chicago. The 
triaSa -feature Was a “band-on 
non-mtimidating seminar about 
microprocessors for product 
-designers-. This.. was oversub- 
scribed many times by U.S. 
"designers anxious to learn about 
ihre new technology. Tickets 
were as' bard to come by as Cup 
Final tickets in Ipswich. 

In December this year, the 
seminar is being repeated at tbo 
Draign Engineering Conference, 
-National Exhibition Centre. Bir- 
mingham, for- the benefit of 
British design engineers, where 
.Chieaga seminar leader. Andrew 
; Singer.- is bringing 25 micro- 
computers to enable British 
design engineers to tuu their 
own practical experiments.

From IV. Grey 

Sir.— With respect to Mr. F. 
Courtney (June 21. blamine the 
American multinationals for all 
tbe ills of this world, and for 
the plight of the -developing 
countries in particular, is like 
blaming tbe trade unions for 
inflation — and then giving them 
no credit when inflation lessens. 

It is. quite simply, to mistake 
the symptom or even the 
doctor’s helping hand — for the 
disease. 

In fact, the growth of those 
multinatiortals has ■ not been 
“ financed ” by— any more than 
it is responsible for — the 
“chronic surpluses” of others, 
but -by the chronic (and now 
recrudescent) deficits Of the 
Americans themselves, which 
have done so much to build up 
the Eurodollar market, on which 
they allegedly feed, to its present 
size/ 

The troubles of the Third 
World would be incomparably 
worse if that market, and its 
numerous other (including now 
petrodollar) varieties, bad not 
done so much to help tbe 
devetoping countries and others 
in their present hour of need. 

Nor. of course, do tbe multi- 
nations “ get their raw materials 
cheaper “ if those countries — 
whether “as art IMF condition 
for further aid " or. more prob- 
ably. for other reasons — are 
“ forced to devalue their curren- 
cies.” seeing that most raw 
material prices are expressed in 
the multinationals’ own.

The PAYE 
puzzle 


From D. B. Logd>.m 

Sir. — Could any of your 
readers help me with an 
apparent anomaly. 

Where an agent arranges work, 
for example for a draughtsman, 
he must apply PAYE to the 
remuneration he handles on 
behalf of his client. 

Where the agent has barristers 
as bis clients, the system is con- 
veniently stood on its head so 
that the barristers can enjoy the 
benefits of Schedule D assess- 
ment. while the agent, working 
without a master and servant 
relationship or any security nf 
employment, must subject his 
expenditure lo scrutiny under 
the more rigorous Schedule E 
rules. 

After trying for two years to 
get to the bottom" of this with 
the Inland Revenue, T was 
eventually (old from within that 
department that they could not 
understand it either, but their 
orders came from a higher 
auhority. 

My attention was drawn to the 
high proportion of lawyers in 
the House of Commons! I sug- 
gested this might weli he unre- 
lated. but was reminded nf tbe 
timely switch made by MPs en 
bloc From self employed tn 
employed status when it suited 
them. 

My cynical Inland Revenue 
informant suggested that MPc 
lasing their .seats in the next 
election might well he claiming 
redundancy p3vments. 

In view of their hvsteria over- 
tax avoidance schemes. I eannm 
re?llv imagine that they wmifr* 
exhibit such ruthless self interest 
as ihe ahn*<» suggests.

FT Monthly Survey of Business Opinion 


STATISTICAL MATERIAL © TAYLOR NELSON GROUP 


GENERAL OUTLOOK 


GENERAL BUSINESS SITUATION 


OPTIMISM about both the 
genera] business situation and 
the outlook for the UK economy 
bas been waning visibly since 
the beginning of the year, and 
last month's survey showed that 
the trend has not halted. 

As one might expect at this 
Stage of the recovery, with con- 
sumer demand leading the way. 
the level of confidence in the 
two consumer orientated sectors 
covered last month — stores and 
consumer sendees, and cars 3nd 
consumer durables — is signifi- 
cantly higher than in the third 
sector, electrical engineering. 
But. even in the first two 
sectors, the level of optimism 
was lower than in January. 



Baku? sfDpsnDmnc' 

, L 1_ L 1 1 

1973 74 75 ’7fi 77 '78 


At a mure tangible level, the 
electrical- engineering and cars/ 


consumer durables sectors were 
less inclined than they had 
been when they were last sur- 
veyed four months ago to expect 
their export volume to be 
greater over the next 12 months. 

An increasing number of 
companies throughout industry 
arc also now citing the level of 
export orders as one of the con- 
straints on their output. 

AH in all. the outlook is 
dominated by the slow rate of 
recovery in the UK and abroad, 
plus some concern over the 
next phase of wages policy and 
the uncertainties generated by 
the coming election.

your company's prospects than you were

ORDERS AND OUTPUT 


NEW ORDERS 


Only a partial recovery 


CONSUMER demand continues 
to rise but the upturn is a slow- 
one and it has yet to filter 
through to the non-consumer 
goods sectors of industry. 

This is shown by the contrast- 
ing reports for orders and 
deliveries last month. In the 
stores and consumer sen-ices 
sector I he rising trend con- 
tinued but both the electrical 
engineering and cars/consumer 
durables sectors were less 
inclined to report an improve- 
ment than they had been in 
January. The net result was a 
decline in the overall balance 
of “ups" over “downs” for 
orders.

The electrical ei

sectors wore also more Inclined 
to say that their level of pur-

rather than increase. 

_ Looking further ahead, the 

stores/consumer services sector 
had become slightly more 

bullish about sales volume over 

the next 12 months, whereas 
the other two sectors had 
~ become less so. 

All in all. with an election in

slowly, the outlook was said to 
engineering be tinged with a good deal of

THE PREVALENCE of labour 
recruitment difficulties at so 
early a stage of the upturn— 
and one which, moreover, is still 
largely confined to the con- 
sumer goods beeiorv — is both 
remarkable and worrying. 

The difficulties have been 
cited for some months and 
apply to all three i-areyories nr 
manpower listed in the tabic — 
executive staff, skilled factory 
personnel, and manual labour. 

In electrical engineering, the 
complaints ranged from s-eninr 
personnel to engineers and 
scientists. inspectors. and 
unskilled staff. In cars, high

sumer services, it was good

Taxes and pay policy were 
widely blamed. Differentials 
had been compressed and it was 
difficult to persuade people to 
w ork overtime. Pay restrictions 
were also given as one of the 
reasons for the frequency with 
which labour disputes are being 
cited as a constraint upon 
production. 

The biggest constraint, how- 
ever. continues t» be order 
levels including, for an increas- 
ing proportion of companies, 
export orders.

INVESTMENT AND LABOUR 


LABOUR REQUIREMENTS (Weighted by employment) 


4 monthly moving total 


THE PROSPECT of reducing 
the number of unemployed has 
waned, with more firms now 
expecting to make do with the 
same or a smaller labour force 
and fewer firms expecting an 
increase. This month it was the 
electrical engineering sector in 
particular which has scaled 
down its forward requirements. 

The main factor by far was 
the lack of demand, actual and 
fureseabii?. This leasmi was 
mentioned by 6fi pur cent 
(weighted) or respondents in 
the last four morphs as against 
only 3# per cent in the Novem- 
ber-February period.

After demand, the oUier. 
reasons given have been, in 


descending order, the potential 
cost of redundancy payments, 
plans to raise productivity, diffi- 
culty in recruiting staff with 
suitable skills, other aspects of 
employment legislation (besides 
the cost of redundancy pay- 
ments). high wage and other 
labour costs, and uncertainty 
about the future. 

Companies often made the 
point that, because of recent 
employment legislation, they 
now had to be much more 
certain oT an upturn before they 
took on more labour. 

Meanwhile. Lite prospects Tor 
increased investment spending 
remain reasonably good.

COSTS AND PROFIT MARGINS 

Inflation rate steadies 


COSTS 


4 monthly moving total 



INFLATION expectation!, have 
remained very steady in recent 
munths. with the median fore- 
cast increase in wage costs over 
the coming 12 months ranging 
around 12 per cent, for total 
unit costs about 1U-11 per cent, 
and output prices 10 per cent. 
There is no sign so far of com- 
panies expecting a deterioration 
next autumn and winter. 

One interesting point to 
emerge this month is the 
number of companies which 


contract to the government 
which are taking the Govern- 
ment's “ black list " seriously. 
Elsewhere, there appears to be 
a greater readiness to take a 
more flexible attitude to the 
official guidelines. 

The outlook for profitability 
has brightened a liitie. For 
profit Diargans, the “ ups '* now 
almost equal the “ downs.” 
while for earnings on capital 
employed the balance of “ ups '* 
has become a little larger. 

The stores/consumer services 
and the cars /durables sectors 
have both raised their earnings 
expectations, while the electrical 
engineering sector has become 
more bullish about ina rains. 

These surveys, which are car- 
ried out for the Financial Times 
by the Taylor Nelson Group, are 
based upon extensive interviews 
with top executives. 

Three sectors and some 30 
companies are covered in turn 
every mouth. They are drawn 
from a sample based upon the 
FT-Actuaiies' Index, which 
accounts for about 60 per cent

Western J 
Australia 
borrowing 
targets s 

By Michael Btanden n 

WESTERN AUSTRALIA 
expects to borrow up to 
AJSlOOm (USS112m) a year, 
rising to perhaps A$500m by a 
about 1990, to support the 
development of its rieh mineral r 
resources. 

This was stated In London by J 
Sir Charles Court, premier or J 
Western Australia, as part of ; 
hi> Eu.’opi-aii visit lo interest 
bankers in the Stale's prospcc- 1 
ti\e growth. 

The move follows the i 
changes which, fur the first i 
time, have enabled the indlvl- < 
dual stases of Australia lo 
cuter the international markets 
for funds, rather than relying 
on the Co mmou wealth to pro- 
vide finance. 

Sir tfisiles underlined the 
potential of W e si e r n 
Australia's resources, including 
coal, iron ore, olfsUorc gas and 
possibly oil, aluminium and 
uranium. He emphasised that 
any international borrowing, 
while with a Stale guarantee, 
would be linked io specific pro- 
jects and justified on their own 
profitability. . 

He described a number of 
infrastructure projects planned 
bv the State, including a 
AM 00 gas pi peline. 

Ennia margins 
improve again 

By Charles Batchelor 

AMSTERDAM, June 4. 
ENNIA, the Dutch insurance 
group, said gross receipts rose 
by nearly 14 per cent in the 
first three months of 1978 while 
expenses rose by only 6 per 

CP The board maintains Its 
earlier view that profits per 
share will rise somewhat this 
year despite an increase in 
share capital. 

Net profit rose 20 per cent 
In 1977 to FI 42.9m (519m) on 
gross receipts 21 percent 
higher at FI 1.85bn <$820m). 
1 Expenses rose by 9 per cent.

The Financial Times 


The 1979 Financial Times diaiy shows 
a number of improvements over the 1978 Financial 
Times diary. 

Firstly, design. 

We commissioned James Shurmei; 
who has produced work for the National Gallery, to 
completely revise the interior styling. 

He provided us with a nicely understated 
thin-line treatment of the main diaiy, together with 
a matching design for the information sections. 

Secondly, it 

occurred to us that there 
were insufficient months 
in the year. 

Hence the 1979 FT 
diary starts on November 
27th, 1978, and finishes 
on February 3rd, 1980. 

So you can 

slip into 1979 whenever 
it suits you. 

We’ve also 

extended the business 
information section. 

It gives a comprehensive 
list of useful information 
sources in thirty 
countries of the world. 

You can trace 
anything from a Belgian 
consumers’ association 
to a Polish translation 
agency. 

On the subject of translation, the diary also- 
contains a French and German business 
vocabulary covering everything from ‘cash’ to 
‘collateral’. 

It could help make letters from abroad a lot 
easier to understand 

Next, we thought we’d put an end to writer's 
cramp. 

To save you having to copy out hundreds of 
addresses and telephone numbers at the end of 
each year; we’ve incorporated a detachable address 
booklet 

Now, on the assumption that you do a fair 
bit of travelling, we’ve listed the passport, visa 
and vaccination requirements of all major countries, 
along with world time-zones and 
air-travel distances. There is also a superb 48-page 
colour atlas. 

Statistics, we thought, were vital. 

In the 1979 FT diary you’ll find an 18 
page section containing analysis charts, monthly 
expense sheets, weights and measures, 
metric conversion tables, both metric and imperial 
graphs, and international clothing sizes. 


Finally, we decided that no-one wants 
a marker-ribbon that falls to bits, so we’ve attached 
a non-fraying marker ribbon. 

In addition to the desk diary, there’s a A 
slim pocket diary and wallet, in black leather; with^ 

strengthened comers and real gold lettering. 

It contains a colour map of the City 
of London, tube and inter-city maps, a list of recom- 
mended hotels and restaurants, information on 
road, rail and air travel in Europe, calendars, world 


address book. 

If required, the desk diary, pocket 
diary and address book can all be gold-blocked with 
either your initials or company name and logo. 

So you can give either yourself, your staff or 
your best clients a personalised gift 

Which will add a very nice perspective to any 
desk top.

Although tlie technical development of word processing equipment is well ahead of demand at the 
)fl(j .:i moment, some manufacturers foresee 40 per cent growth in the UK alone this year. Projections of 

?/:> y growing demand in Europe and the U.S. suggest that it will become essential office equipment. 


THE. RELATIVE sluggishness 
of the .market lor word process- 
ing, equipment makes an extra- 
ordinary contrast with cite 
rapidity with which the pro- 
ducts. themselves arc develop- 
ing.; Almost every month one 
of -the. 30 or. more, companies 
which are currently marketing 
word processing equipment 
.announces a new product or 
system. 


A complete new vocabulary 
has grown up tt> describe the 
technology of automatic typing 
and computer-aided text 
editing, which is still far in 
advance of what, still happens 
in most offices. '. 


Olivetti, for example, is pre- 
dicting a growth of 30 per cent 
to 40 per cent in the OK market 
this year, admittedly from a 
fairly small base. More cautious 
estimates, however, put current 
growth at 15 per cent to 20 per 
cent. Although market estimates 
vary, it is generally agreed that 
about 7,000 word process sys- 
tems arc now installed in the 
UK and that sales this year will 
he between 2.000 and 3.000 
units. However, because of the 
very rapid advance of equip- 
ment it is now somewhat diffi- 
cult to define what word proces- 
sors essentially are. 


writers dev doped from 
machines first marketed in ml 4. 

These earliest machines v.cre 
typewriters driven by punched 
tape rather in the manner of the 
pianola, to produce si.inikud

The general definition 



reached, it would be wry diffi- 
cult to predict any limit to the 
growth that would be possible. 

Within Europe, the main mar- 
kets arc France, Germany and 
the UK of which Germany is 
the largest, probably because 
the high wages paid lo secre- 
taries make word processing 
equipment a more obviously 
economic proposition there. 

The current number of word 
processors installed in Europe 
is estimated at around 100,000 
units compared with perhaps 
35O.O0U to 400.000 units in the 
U.S. where the word processor 
population is expected to double 
by 19S1. 


wun a mixture of short non- 


standard letters, lengthy docu- 
ments and pru formas, it seems 
that the improvement could be 
between 100 and 150 per cent. 

Tile improved efficiency will 
clearly depend partly on th<* 
extern to which the equipment 
is liked by the secretaries, and 
in this area, the industry is sun 
in the testing and proving stage. 
It appears generally agreed that 
typists like the simpler form nf 
word processor because it 
relieves them of tedious retyp- 
ing and makes error correction 


much easier.

While the experts are 1 dis-

remember that almost half the

verted from manual to electric 
and that orify about 2 per cent

the precedent of IBM io 1964

tion of documents from

tion stage to the printing of 
the final draft 


By Max Wilkinson 


Challenge 




The. general 'slow ness to auto- 
mate the. production; of letters 
and documents does, however, 
represent a challenge and an 
opportunity for manufacturers, 
as the large sums spent on 
research .; and . development 
clearly show. • 

It now appears that after a 
sustained campaign for the 
wider acceptance of word pro- 
cessing, manufacturers are 
begwjqing to : see their efforts 
rewarded. •-.•,-■■■ 


From the office manager's 
point of view this definition is 
helpful because it focuses atten- 
tion on the competing claims 
for investment from different 
types of equipment aimed to 
increase office efficiency. For 
example, in some offices 
sophisticated dictation equip- 
ment may be a better buy than 
automatic typewriters: or it may 
be evident that both are needed. 


• The use of the term “word 
processing" is. however, gener- 
ally becoming narrowed so that 
it refers only to computer like 
equipment which handles stores 
and prints out text These more 
sophisticated products' do, in 
fact, have, a different genealogy 
from the simple automatic type- 


tape. The main advantage of 
such machines is that a first 
draft of a document can be 
captured and siured on tape and 
corrected so that there is no 
need to lyjie nut ihe complete 
document a second or third 
time for a lair copy. 

The improvement of auto- 
matic typewriters converged, 
however, with developments in 
a very different field, the mani- 
pulation of figures in computers. 
It was quickly realised that the 
Techniques used for dm a pro- 
cessing could be applied to 
automatic typing to produce 
“ word processing." 

The full application nf com- 
puter techniques to the secre- 
tarial task became possible 
only recently with the develop- 
ment of the microprocessor ia 
computer etched on a simple 


equipment i> already beginning 
to look vein- like a computer 
Irnninai, vwlli 1 decision-} ike 
screen, fully electronic key- 
board, sometimes separated 
from Ibe screen, magnetic disc 
units, and a separate printer, 
often in a different part of the 
office. 

Such systems nut unly look 
like computer terminals, they 
arc- beginning to behave like 
them as they are given extra 
capabilities to interrogate cent- 
ral computer files or to commu- 
nicate directly with other word 
processors in the manner of a 
teleprinter. Word processors 
are also being developed by. for 
example Philips, which have 
ability to read text prepared 
on another machine. This 
“optical character recognition " 
tOCUi allows a word processor 


ihe next few ; .vr- mi* luo 
distinct sect inj}.-. v-hich roughly 
correspond io me historic divi- 
sion already mentioned. The 
more expense. computer-! ikv 
range of product including 
systems in whieh several mirk 
stations arc wnvd up to a 
shared processor and printer, 
will be aimed at the larger 
offices and typing pools with a 
high volume ot work. 

The other section of the 
market is likely to be the 
development i.f fairly simple 
automatic typewriters with a 
limited memory fur mass use. 
The first step will he to replace 
most of the moving parts of 
electric typewriters by elec- 
tronic circuit’.. The golf hall 
type of machine which has a 
single print head instead of a 
basket nf type lexers is the first 


lowered -u far that they ran be 
sold the domestic consumer. 

Ip ihe next few years, how- 
ever. much uf the manufac- 
turers' efforts will ne spent on 
persuading businesses and 
government departments of the 
substantial economies which 
can be achieved through the use 
of word processing. 

Mackintosh Consultants esti- 
mate that in Europe as a whole 
the total market for automatic 
typewriters will increase from 
about $60m in 1976 to about 
SI :51m by 19SJ. However, by 
the niid-lf*$Us most people !it 
the industry believe the market 
i-nuld increase very rapidly in- 
deed. Comparison with the 
plain paper copier market, 
which has, grown in little more 
Than a decade to a worldwide 
figure of some $7bu. shows that 
once a lake off point has been 


If the market in Europe is to 
follow the American pattern, 
Two conditions will have to be 
fulfilled. First managers will 
have to be convinced of the cost 
benefits and the increases of 
efficiency possible in their par- 
ticular offices. But equally, 
secretaries themselves will have 
to have a positive attitude 
towards the new machines. This 
will be particularly important 
in Europe where unions, and 
particularly public sector unions 
are mare powerful than in the 
U.S. 

On the question of efficiency 
a large number nf separate 
theoretical and practical studies 
have been undertaken, but it is 
difficult to generalise the 
results, because the gains in 
different applications vary so 
widely. 

Fur applications like mail 
order, where large numbers nf 
repetitive standard letters are 
produced. improvements in 
efficiency of perhaps four or five 
times have been claimed. How- 
ever, for a more general office 


However, -ome -if the newer 
configurations with television- 
type display » have met with 
resistance as they can produce 
eye srrain. One of the problems 
is that keyboards attached 
display units often do not allow 
adjustments to be made in 
accommodate operators with 
different preferences nr 
different physical characteris- 
tics. These problems are now 
being tackled by most of the 
major manufacturers, but it 
seems likely that a settling 
down period will he required 
before the best configuration 
becomes generally agreed in 
the industry. 

Generally. however. the 
reactions uf those who have 
installed word processing equip- 
ment appear tu be favourable, 
and since the idea has many nf 
the merits of that olber labour- 
saving device, the plain paper 
copier, there seems little reason 
why word processors should not 
so. in be accepted in a similar 
way as an essential part of 
most modem offices.

All this is, however, very ^ 
small beer in face of ibe all- c. 
enibracing plans of Satellite ‘ 
Business Systems. This organi- 
sation. which first saw the lighi 
Of day as " CML Satellite Curp" » 

in 1971. will in 1381 have the 0 
first synchronous satellite in 
orbit dedicated entirely in busi- ' 
ness coimuunicalions — cmipulcr 
data, audio, video, conferencing 
and . . • document transmission. 

The key to the vigour with 
which SBS is likely to pursue 
its goals lies m the fact that 
in 1974. IBM twilight nut two of 
the three original shareholders 
(Lockheed and MCI Communi- 
cations). True, the Federal 
Communications Commission 
then demanded of IBM and 
Comsat that they take a third 
partner. Aetna Life, but the 
major impetus is coming from 
the giant computer company 
with an eye on estimates that 
U.S. business communications 
1 will grow to $61hn in 1980 and 
! to $100bn in 19S5. 

Launch of the first satellite 
is expected for late 1980. with 
a full commercial service 
beginning in 1981. Two satel- 
lites will be active with one in 
1 reserve on the ground. Capacity 
‘ of the system will be 43m bits 
i (binary digits) of data per 
1 second or the equivalent of 
> 14,000 voice circuits. 

S The initial target is to sell 
9 the idea to over 400 companies 
a in the U.S., following a series 
u of studies of the five services 
r mentioned above, including elec- 
y tronic mail, and of a number of 
s undisclosed applications, 
s The electronic mail study 
r showed that over the companies 
■s examined, some 50 to 80 per 
is cent of documents generated 
e could be captured electronically 
ly and 20 to 50 per cent could be 
J. facsimiled. 

a- At the same time 50 per cent 
le of company mail was internal 
:h to the total organisation while 
ic 40 per vent was aimed at other 

organisations. Of this last share, 
►s- almost nine-tenths could be 
ie . handled by satellite 


With several lengthy battles 
behind it in the U.S., both wiili 
the regulatory body Mhe FCC) 
and with opponents or any muvo 
to dilute line traffic. SBS is 
extremely guarded in its pro- 
nouncement* about possible 
traffic tn Europe. 

But it seems very plain inat 

tin.- question is n»»i " whether" 
but “ when -? Firstly, many >>f 
the companies taking the n , r- 
vicii in Ihe U.S. will have major 
affiliates in Europe — anmc doing 
more business in the EEC lhan 


at home. In the meantime, IBM 
and Comsat last year carried out 
a significant experiment to link 
up two compuicrs 4,1)00 miles 
apart, at La Claude in France 
and Gaithersburg in Maryland, 
using the Franco - German 
Svmphonie satellite system. 

■ Information wa« moved at

second, a rate nur-tnly 3U‘» limes 
as much as can lie provided by 
the ordinary lok-ph.ine line. An 
error rate or one »iii:[t in 100 m 

was achieved. 


In Britain, Logica is carrying 
out a £lm study of the tele- 
communications scene for the 
whole of the EEC area and will 
take some 12 months to present 
its conclusions. This company 
has been involved in various 
aspects of communications ana 
networking for years and won 
a number of significant data pro- 
cessing contracts on the basis or 
it- 

The company's Tarifica report 
nn telecommunications costs in 
13 European countries will pro- 
vide part of the study hasis. And 
not surprisingly, electronic mail 
will be one uf the main chapter 
headings. Logica has already 


developed a word processing c 
concept which will allow com- t 
panies to progress towards a t 
generalised electronic mail s 
system as external services i 
expand. Unilever and BP are i 
users. | 

Nuw that a fir-* European 
experimental communications ' 
satellite ha* finally been pul 
into orbit, it may be th 3t 'he 

European PTTs wiil overcome 
their aversion to rapid progress 
and begin to move towards a 
point where they can meet any 
SBS competition and provide 
counter-competition. After all. 
Canada has longer experience of 
satellite communication for 
business uses than even the U-a. 

From the first European 
business communication satellite 
! operating in 1985 or thereabouts 
. to a universal business com- 
munications system where key 
company staff would each have 
1 a pocket pager capable of print- 
1 ins or displaying a message 
- from any origin and in complete 
1 security, as envisaged by Multi- 
^ tone, is only a short step.

office managers to make a 
choice. Butler Cox points out 
that there are 30 suppliers of 
such devices in Britain with only 
7.000 machines installed, or 
under 2 per cent of tlic total 
typewriter population and that 
die sarae applies in Europe a.s 
a whole. However, it sees display 
word processors as quickly be- 
coming generally justifiable in 
intensive use areas regardless of 
work mix. and even when the 
work load is not heavy. thc> 
will be used for ibeir ability to 
communicate. 

Butler Cox sees the stand- 
alone versus shared logic debate 
disappearing because of a 
merging of the areas over the 
next two or three years, partly 
because of the rapid growth in 
1 the power of the electronic 
elements used— higher perform- 
ance microcomputers with 
solid-state memories of greater 
capacity, used either in hard- 
wired or software-operated 
form; mini-computers with capa- 
bilities virtually indistinguish- 
able from those of large general 
purpose machines: and main- 
c frames which manufacturers are 
* having to improve to beat off 
the above competition. Work 
stations themselves will become 
multi-functional to cover data 
entry, information retrieval and 
problem solving as well as word 
processing. 


Conclusions 


IN A RECENT interview. Dr. : 
Carl Hammer, who is a pioneer 
of data processing and director 
of computer science at Univac. 
asserted that. even now. 
civilisation as we know it would 
collapse were it not lor the use 
of computers. 

But men were going to have 
to depend more and more on 
these machines to run an in- 
creasinglv complex society and 
the machines themselves would 
have to be altered to suit the 
problems to which they are 
going to be applied. 

To underline his assertions. 
Dr. Hammer pointed out that 
Government agencies in tech- 
nically advanced countries arc 
collecting information about 
each individual in those coun- 
tries at a rate now estimated at 
: around lm bytes per capita and 
per year, while in the U.S.. 
i total information of this type is 
• expanding at a speed of lm 
, bytes per second. 

. Meanwhile, he said, the com- 
puters in America's Federal 


and State agencies were doing ; 
work which would otherwise 
demand the manual efforts of 
400bn clerical workers. 

He described the coming prob- 
lems as belonging to the realm 
of “ gigantic*).." :i realm in 
which computers are the only- 
solution. While it is hard in 
escape the feeling that com- 
puter begets computer to the 
nth degree. Dr. Hammer is un- 
doubtedly right in pointing nut 
the vast span i>f new possibili- 
ties computers have opened up. 
And. looking at word processing 
and text editing in particular 
he saw these as areas for an 
especially rapid development in 
technology, winch by the turn 
of the century could make ex- 
isting secretarial functions re- 
dundant— in the U.S. at present 
some 10m people arc doing 
, work of this type, 
i The human element would be 
i eliminated lb rough develop- 

ment of high quality text-iu- 
- voice and voice recognition 
l equipment — already existing in 


a comparatively primitive form. 
It would mean that a letter 
could be produced by a machine 
as last as its user could speak it. 

Whether Dr. Hammer is right 
or not In his turn of the century 
timing will be verified by many 
reading this text. What is cer- 
tain is the speed a: which word 
processing is expanding, par- 
ticularly of computer-based 
equipment which, according to 
Olivetti is moving to users at a 
rate which this year will show 
a growth which could be as 
much as 40 per cent. 


Emphasis 


The company is moving up 
quickly tn the Number 2 posi- 
tion and believes that, as time 
goes by. customers will place 
greater emphasis nn the ability 
nf the unit tu communicate so 
that it can function as an elec- 
tronic mail terminal. In other 
words its processor will have to 
become more powerful. 

Mote power is also needed 


to meet the requirements of a ■ 
large sector in the middle of the 
market where information re- < 
trievat is becoming most im- : 
portant. The company is launch- 
ing a software package to 
interface word processing and 
information retrieval. It has also 
developed WP machine-to- 
machine and machine-lo-com- 
puter communications facilities 
for its TE5 501. a unrt which is 
helping to solve the EEC’s worst 
headache — its sis language 
translation problems which will 
not be helped by the addition of 
communications in Greek. Por- 
tuguese and Spanish. 

Olivetti marketing experts 
see a considerable growth 
potential for electronic type- 
writers with simple magnetic 
storage at the low end of the 
WP market. In this they are at 
variance with a recent study of 
. the word processing arena car- 
■ ried out by the Butler Cox 
i Foundation, until now. restric- 
ted to membership. 

[ In the study, intended to help 


In iis conclusions, the report 
says that in 5 year-?, today's 
equipment will cost 60 per cent 
of today's prices which suggests 
that many businesses would be 
well advised to move into 
limited use or display word pro- 
cessors now. 

This is, of course, music in 
the ears of organisations such 
as Wang. Rank Xerox and 
Logica. all of whom have con- 
centrated on video typing 
systems supported by computers. 
Logica has recently expanded 
tfie power nf its Unicom WP 
equipment, giving it ability to 
support 16 input screens and 
keyboards, up to 20 Megabytes 
of" disc storage on-line to the 
computer and with more power- 
ful discs to come. 

Logica claims a cost per 
station of £6.800 to £8,000 
which is less than many stand- 
r alone WP systems, it asserts, 

. yet gives users a 50 to 100 per 
cent greater productivity in- 
. crease over conventional office 
J equipment lhan is possible with 
* stand-alone units. Logica bases 
‘ this claim oh the fact that the 
L shared central machine has in- 
s hcrontly superior storage and 
. management ability. 

. The debate will undoubtedly 
‘ end when builders of stand- 
K alones offer con nectabi lily as a 

matter of course.

Work out the cost of your secretary over the life of a typewriter 
say seven years- and you're looking at a veiy hefty figure indeed. 

Salaries alone will cost you somewhere in the region ot *. ju.uuu. 

and that’s only at today’s rates. . 

Typing isn’t cheap. And it’s false economics to assume that a more 

expensive typewriter is more expensive. 

Watch your secretaiy at work next time you give her a letter 
to type. Notice how she gets slower and slower as she nears the end. inats 
because she’s wary of making a mistake and having to start again. 

See how long she takes to correct a simple error. Watch her 
retrace what she’s already done to underline something. And if its an oia 
typewriter she’s using, watch her stop to rub her poor aching neck muscles 

after an hour or two. . 

When we developed our range of electric machines, we watched, 
typists at work day upon day month upon month, year upon year Noticed, 
what slowed them down, what irked them. And then spent ages over the 
keyboard ourselves, eliminating the stumbling blocks. 

The results of all this application can be seen in our range ot 
electric typewriters. In our wide range of word processing equipment- _ 
including dictation machines, communicating typewriters and photocopiers 
and typesetting typewriters that allow you to print like a professional without 

employing a specialist 

But before we proudly bring them ovei; we’d like to spend an hour 
or two with you, listening and watching. Just as we listened and watched 


in the past. .. 

So we can be sure of recommending just as much typewriter as 

you need from our very comprehensive range. . 

Call us and invite us round. Or ask your secretary to fill m and clip 


out this coupon. 

She'll probably put more enthusiasm into that small task man 
anything else she's done this year

OVERSEAS MARKETS

INTERNATIONAL BONDS 


BY FRANCIS GHlLf 


Falling dollar depresses market activity 


As IF the continuing rise in 
interest rates was not enough 
(Citibank joined other leading 
U.S. banks last week in raising 
its prime rale) the bond market 
had to Taue a fall in the value 
nr the dollar against the stronger 
currencies last week. 

There is now only one straight 
bond on uffer in the market, the 
S50m private placement for the 
European Steel and Coal Com- 
munity. 

In the floating rate sector only 
the S30m for Arab International 
Bank remains on offer. This 
sector of the market did, how- 
ever. put on a better performance 
than the straight bond sector. 

The two floaters priced last 
week were increased, the $-5m 
for Banque Worms by S5rn and 
the St 25 m one for National 
Westminster by $25m thus 
making it the largest floater ever 
launched in this market. Float- 
ing rate notes are usually placed 
with other banks but in the case 
nr National Westminster good 
institutional demand was 
reported by some dealers. Both 
issues held up well in the 
secondary market. Banquc 
Worms was trading at 9S£-99 on 
Friday afternoon and' National 
Westminster at 984-991. 

The straight sector was weak 
though a technical rally occurred 
on Thursday and went on 
through Friday thanks to a better 


than expected performance of 
the National Westminster 
straight bond. On Friday it was 
being traded at 98£-99i. a price 
slightly above the limit of the 
selling group discount. 

The only other issue priced 
during the week was the con- 
vertible for Tyco Laboratories, 
which was increased by $5m to 
S25m. U.S. convertibles are rare 
animals; but despite this one 
having its coupon set at the 
tighter end of the spectrum (the 
conversion price was set at $111 
for a premium of 6.33 per cent 
over the $193 closing share price 
an May 31), it held up well in 
the secondary market. On Friday 
Tyco was being traded at 99-89}. 

None of the straight issues 
priced the week before was doing 
well in Lhe secondary market: 
Canadair was quoted at 97-97 V. 
AG A at 97J-98 1 ., while the per- 
formance of Dominion Bridge 
was particularly lack-lustre: it 
had sunk to 96 '.-96; by the end 
of the week. The weakness of 
the straight sector also caused 
the SBOm for Mexico's Comision 


Federal dc Blectricidad to be 
held over for the second week 
running. 

Fuji Bank will offer S20nt or 
three-year floating rale certifi- 
cates of deposit. The issue will 
be managed by Fuji Interna- 
tional Finance and the interest 
rate will be set at one quarter 
point above the London inter- 
bank rate. 

The Yankee bond market was 
also weaker last week: the pre- 
ference displayed by many inves- 
tors for shorter term paper was 
illustrated by the shortening of 
the maturity oF the SlOOin bond 
for Finland, from . seven years 
to five. This enabled the mana- 
ger to improve the terms 
offered to the borrower. In 
the secondary market. French 
issues are holding up better than 
those of some other recent Euro- 
pean borrowers, a reflection no 
dnuht of the more optimistic per- 
ception of the financial and pnli- 
liral outlook in France. The 
terms nf the Caistc Centrale de 
Cooperation Economiaue are 
expected to be announced to- 


morrow. 

The dollar's weaknoi* had the 
usual result of pushing up prices 
in the Swiss Franc and Deutsche 
Mark sectors ol the market. 
Turnover in the latter improved 
last week with prices moving 
up by anything from one half 
to a full point. Better condi- 
tions in the domestic bond mar- 
ket in Germany also helped. 

Japanese convertibles did par- 
ticularly well, helped by a ris- 


ing Yen and even more impor- 
tant. by the strong performance 
of the Tokyo slock exchange. 

The Sank. vo convertible was 
trading at 100-105^ at the end 
nf the week while’ Seiyu Stores 
was quoted at 100-lQli. 

A decision on whether to 
reopen the primary market is 
expected this week when the 
Sub-Committee on Capital Mar- 
kets meets in Frankfurt. While 
most bankers were ruling out a 


reopening a week ago, some are 
now more optimistic. 

The liquidity in Kuwaiti 
Dinars is leading to an increase 
in the number of hoods denomi- 
nated in this currency and an 
improvement in the ''terms' 


offered to borrowers, twelver, 
vear maturities are becoming 
more frequent as . witnessed . toy 
the two latest bonds, for Banco 
National de Xredlto .Rural ami 
Banqne Nationale d’Algene. The 
latter was increased by KU 1m 


and priced at par. Thejaextbc

LABOUR'S powerful anti-EEC 
faction is stepping up pres- 
sure to make sure that the 
party’s next election manifesto 
contains a commitment to en- 
sure a Commons right to veto 
Brussels decisions affecting the 
UK. 


This threat of yet more 
wrangling over Europe inside 
Labour ranks became clear at 
the weekend after a series of 
meetings culminating in that 
of the Safeguard Britain Cam- 
paign-highlighted by an 
appeal From Mr. Enoch Powell 
in loter? to support only those 
candidates explicit? opposed to 
Community membership, what- 
ever their party. 

Mr. Powell's speech, in 
which he accused Labour of 
-cynicism and immorality’’ iu 
dropping its anti-Market line 
iu Government, was not 
thought likely by most MPs to 
be particularly significant iu 
electoral terms. 

Labour demands for a 


manifesto pledge could be 
awkward, however, since they 
stem from Mr. Callaghan’s 
peace-making letter last 
autumn to the National Execu- 
tive Committee, In which he 
promised a “ neo-Gaullist ” 
approach to the Community 
and eschewed federalism. 

To put this Into practice, 
the anti-marketeers are seek- 
ing the assurance of changes 
In the 1972 European Commu- 
nities Act that would involve 
a fundamental weakening of 
Brussels’ authority over West- 
minster, although they stop 
short of withdrawal. 

The Prime Minister will 
resist these demands, but even 
if he succeeds they are likely 
to crop up again when Labour 
tackles its separate manifesto 
for the first direct elections to 
the European Assembly. 

Speculation about the forth- 
coming general election will 
overshadow the final phase of 


the session of Parliament Brst te f l

Q: In these days it. is hard to estimate what i vT 
may have to leave when the time comes. ’ - .. 
I want to be fair to close relatives; but I also 
want to benefit a cause close to my heart 5 
How can I best ensure both ? . -,j 

A: Most of us have a similar problem, with V.. 
inflation. The sensible course is probably to 
leave fixed proportions of your estate to the- *j 
individualsyou wish to remember — say 20% - 
to one, 15% to another and so on — and then. _• 

• the residue to the cause you wish to help. 

Q: I wish to remember old people, since they. '- . 
seem certain to be in continued need; but- 
their needs may change. How can 1 antici- T 
pate what they may be? 

A: Help the Aged has a justified reputation for 
keeping well abreast of the needs of old 
■ people; and has pioneered a great deal of - 
much-needed work for lonely, sick, hungry : V 
and despairing old people. Their trustees .. 
are especially careful to make maximum use V’ 1 , 
of volunteers in daily touch with the elderlv, 
thereby ensuring the most practical response 
to need and obtaining the utmost value for > { . 
each bequest. 'HJ
