BANKS and building societies 
increased their interest rates 
yesterday in response to the 
1 Government's credit squeeze. 
The reception to the monetary 
1 and fiscal package coatimied to 
be favourable io the gilt-edged 
market and there were heavy 
sales of stock. 

Brokers estimated that more 
than Elbn of gilt-edged stock had 
been sold since the announce- 
ment of the measures on Thurs- 
day lunchtime. This is a major 
step towards fulfilling the 
Government’s aim of bringing 
the growth of the money supply 
back within the target range. 

Tbe existing £80 9m long tap 
stock was exhausted yesterday 
morning and in the afternoon 
tbe Bank of England announced 
the issue of a new £lbn 12 per 
cent stock 2013-17. The £800m 
short tap is expected to run out 
early next week. 

Building societies increased 
mortgage rates by If points to 
9J per cent and ihe clearing 
banks, led by National West- 
minster. lifted base lending rates 
by a point to 10 per cent 
1 This follows the onepoint rise 
in Minimum Lending Rate to 


10 per cent announced by the 
Bank of England on Thursday. A 
top-quality industrial borrower 
now will have to pay at least 11 
per cent lor an overdraft. A 
personal customer will faces 
rates of up to about 15 per cent 
and find loans scarcer than L>e^ 
fore. 

The clearers look a differing 
line on the rates they pay on

seven-day deposits. N a; West and 
Lloyds increased the rale on 
deposits by only half a point to 
6$ per cent Barclays and the 
Midland raised their rates by a 
full point to 7 per cent. 

The decision by NatWest and 
Lloyds runs against ibe normal 
pattern since the banks in the 
past bare tended to widen mar- 
gins to maintain profitability 
when interest rates are falling 
rather than when they are ris- 
ing. 

The latest move reflects parUy 
a concern about profitability in 


anticipation of a sizeable in- 
crease in v/aj.e costs this year 
and giv.-n the likely smaller 
scope for ruh:n» Jending.

! BUILDING Society leaders had 
!a lasttnimue change of heart 
[yesterday and toned down pro- 
posed interest rate increases. 

The mortgage rate is to rise 
by U per cent to »J per cent 
! and . the net rate paid to 
ordinary investors will rise from 
5$ per cent to 6-7 per cent. To 
'savers paying the basic rate of 
1 income tax, tbe new rate is 
equivalent to 10 per cent gross. 

The Council of the Building 
Societies Association met yester- 
day in London to debate the 
previous day’s policy comarittee 
recommendation that the cost of 
home loans should rise by li 
per . cent und that investors’ 
rates should increase by 11 per 
gent 

..•The recommendation had been 
made immediately after tbe 
announcement of Thursday's 

economic package, which 
included a 1 per cent rise in 
■Minimum Lending Kate. But, 
rafter further overnight consid- 
eration, the societies decided to 


modify original proposals which 
many believed represented a 
slight over-reaction to the latest 
reviews. 

. Yesterday’s debate was 
lengthy and not all the societies 
were happy with the outcome, 
believing that the higher rate 
structure was tbe better option 
and emphasising that operating 
margins now will be narrower 
than would have been the case 
under the original proposal. 

The increase in the mortgage 
rate is the first since October 
1976. Tbe cost of new home 
loans will rise immediately and 
charges- to existing borrowers 

trill be adjusted in the next 
month or two. 

Mr. Ralph Stow, chairman of 
tbe association, said he hoped 
the new rate structure would 
last for some time to come. The 
mortgage rate rise might origin- 
ally have been confined to 1 per 
cent, but for Thursday's increase 
in MLR. 

The higher building society 


interest rarcs am designed to 
halt The falling levels of net 
rtrclpfs experienced in recenr 
months. Provisional figure? 
released yesterday suggested 
receipts in May were only £211m 
against £335in in April and 
l’56flm last October. 

Receipts this month could be 
dawn lo £1 5Um and tbe associa- 
tion said yesterday that severe 
nionsage rationing would have 
arisen without an increase in 
investment rates. 

li was confirmed yesterday 
that the restrictions on building 
SK'Ut.v lending, imposed in April 
when Govern merit concern over 
ri>ir:-' house prices was at its 
peak, will be phased out. 

The societies and Ihe Govern- 
nient agree that house prices are 
ruin^ less quickly and that a 
gradual resin ration of higher 
lending levels can he undertaken. 
The current monthly lending 
fig.cv of about fSlffin should rise

ter.

THE LIBERALS arc actively 
considering tuling with the 
Conservatives on Wednesday’s 
Opposition censure motion to 
cut Mr. Denis Healey’s salary, 
as a gesture of anger at ibis 
week’s emergency financial 
package. 

The final altitude of the 
parly's 13 MPs will he settled 
only early next week, after a 
meeting between Mr. Alan 
Beith. Liberal Chief Whip, and 
Mr. Michael Cox. his Govern- 
ment opposite number. Their 
vote will io P3rt depend on 
whether tbe issue is treated as 
one of confidence. 

Should the Liberals side 
vvilli the Tories. Mr. Bealey’s 
salary — if not his future as 
Chancellor— will depend on (he 
various nationalist parties, 
who will also make up their 
minds shortly before the 
debale. 

Whether or not the Govern- 
ment makes the is«uo one of 
confidence has become part of 
the long-running battle of 
nerves between the Govern- 
ment and tbe Liberals over 
Budget straleev. This led lost

version to Tiinher national

Mr. John Pardoe, Liberal 
economics spokesman, whose 
poor personal relations with 
Mr. Healey are no seeret, last 
night claimed that, had the 
Chancellor been prepared (o 
work with the Liberals on tax 
reform, last Thursday’s pack- 
age would have been unneces- 
sary. 

Meanwhile senior Cabinet 
Ministers were vigorously 
defending the monetary 
measures taken liy the Chan- 
cellor and pinning the blame 
for them squarely on tbe Con-

j BY NICHOLAS COLCHESTER 

[STANDARD CHARTERED, ihe 
large British multi-national 
bank, has arranged to buy 
Union Bancorp, the sixth largest 
bank in California, for S37*2m in 
the British banking sector’s most 
costly venture into North 
America .so far. 

It eclipses a $300m deal an- 
nounced last month by National 
Westminster Bank for the Nat- 
ional Bank of North America. 

Lord Barber, chairman of 
Standard Chartered, called the 
decision “the most important 
development since the Standard 
Bank and the Chartered Bank 
joined forces just over eight 
years ago." Jt will raise tbe 
proportion nf the bank’s business 
in North America from five to 
around 25 per cent. 

The two managements have 
provisionally agreed that Stan- 
dard will pay $33 in cash for each 
Onion share. This compares with 
the price on the New York Sleek 
Exchange before tbe announce- 
ment of S14^. and is equivalent 
to 20 times Union’s earnings in 
1977. Last nieht Union shares in 
.Yew York closed at $26. 

The transaction still depends 
on the attitude of the O.S. regula- 
tory authorities and on the final 
decision of both boards. The 
latter involves complete examina- 
tion of litigation involving the 
U.5. bank, which caused its last 
accounts to be qualified. 

Standard has been homing in 
on California for more than a 
decade. The Chartered Bank 
founded a bank there in 1964. 
called tbe Chartered Bank of 
London, with five branches. This 
has since expanded to 32 through 
two acquisitions — the Liberty 


National Bank and the Com- 
mercial and Farmers National 
Bank. Standard also made a 
spectacular but abortive aiu-mpl 
to buy Bank of California for 
S130m just over .1 year ago. 

Union Bank, with ass-ei? of 
S4.7bn, was tbe last remaining 
bank in California of substantial 
but affordable sire. Tito next 
largest. Crocker National, has a 
balance-sheet total of some 
S12bn. If SCBs purchase yocs 
through it will merge its existing 
California operation with 
S47Sm in assets, into Union 
Bank. making Union the 
30th largest hank in the U.S. 

Union is much more a com- 
mercial than a retail bank. It 
has only 25 branches — pre- 
dominantly in the Los Angeles 
area — whereas ihe National 
Bank of North America, acquired 
by NatWest has 141 branches 
with only four-fifths of Union’s 
assets. 

Standard has assets of $15l>n 
and 1,500 branches across the 
world. The Union Bank ha.-: had 
a poor profit record of fait- 
reflecting in part the provisions 
it was forced to make for losses 
io the real estate and construc- 
tion business. Both sides are 
looking for improved earnings 
this year. Standard is eager to 
fund its dollar lending with 
Union Bank’s dollar deposits and 
notes that Union’s advances cur- 
rently account for only 53 per 
cent of its deposits. 

Standard’s share price moved 
up by 5p on the news lo close 
last night at 410p.

Lloyds charges 


j BY DAVID FREUD 

LLOYDS BANK yesterday 
became the first of tbe clearing 
banks to announce higher 
charges for customers. The in- 
crease is less than two months 
after publication of a Price Com- 
mission report which said that 
the charges by the banks for 
handling cash and cheques were 
“not excessive" 

National Westminster is likely 
to follow Lloyds’ lead next week, 
though Barclays and Midland are 
nut expected to make increases 
before the New Year. 

Lloyds notified the Price Com- 
mission of the changes a month 
ago. They come into operation 
immediately. One effect will be 
to reduce the proportion of the 
banks' 3.4m customers who bank 
free from 70 to 60 per cent 
Charge for cheques, standing 
orders and direct debit payments 


wUj rise from 9p to 12] p an item, 
though the charge for Cashpoint 
withdrawals. 3 per cent of ihe 
total, drops from 9p t 0 7;.p. 

Tbe criterion for maintaining 
current accounts free or charge 
has been changed from an aver- 
age balance of £150 to a mini- 
mum of £100 for the half-year 
period. 

The charges relief rate, by 
which those not qualifying for 
free banking have charges 
reduced in proportion to the 
average sum in their current 
account, has been fixed at 4 per 
cent since 1975. It will he 1 per 
cent below deposit account rate. 

In practice relief rate is likely 
to mean that the average cus- 
tomer. with 60 withdrawals a 
year, is not charged if his aver- 
age balance remains above £150 
even if be drops below the £100 
minimum. 




Shoe shop price curb r Mg& 



BY ELINOR GOODMAN, CONSUMER AFFAIRS CORRESPONDENT 


THE Price Commission yesterday 
recommended a cut in shoe re- 
tailers’ gross margins. This 
would mean prices wonld rise 
more slowly this autumn than 
would otherwise be the case. 

■ The commission, which has 
toade an eight-month inquiry of 
all aspects of footwear distribu- 
tion, did not specify a time limit. 
If the Government accepts the 
commission’s proposals it will 
have to decide how long they 
should apply. 

’ The commission found that 
shoe chains, such as those run 
hy British Shoe Corporation, had 
very high gross margins. The 
average gross margin _ for 
multiple shoe chains last year 
was 46.9 per cent 


It concluded that British Shoe 
— a subsidiary of Sears Holdings 
which accounts for 20 per cent 
of tile market — was not exploit- 
ing its competitive strength as 
much as it could. 

This was allowing less efficient 
retailers to benefit from very 
high margins. It said British 
Shoe should be encouraged to 
adopt a more aggressive market- 
ing policy. The threat of a refer- 
ence to the Monopolies Com- 
mission should be removed. 

The commission proposed that 
from October no retail chain 
with ten ot more branches 
should be allowed lo make a 
higher gross profit margin than 
it did in 1977.

Dockland 

fish 

market 

backed 


By John Brennan. 

Property Correspondent 

PLANS to move London's 
Billingsgate fish market to a 
new £6m market complex in 
Dockland have been agreed by 
the Greater London Council's 
Central Area Plaunlng Com- 
mittee. 

The committee's approval of 
ihc move to a 13-acre site off 
West India Dock Road in Poplar 
follows agreement to the plans 
by the London borough of Tower 
Hamlets and the Docklands joint 
action committee. The transfer 
will now depend upon the 
decision of the Secretary of 
■State for the Environment, Mr. 
Peter Shore. 

It is expected that the move 
from the 200-year-old Billings- 
gate market in Lower Thames 
Street will be financed by the 
Government through grants to 
Tower Hamlets, with a propor- 
tion of thr cost being paid by 
the capital's market authority, 
the City of London Corporation. 


Approval for 
nuclear waste 
contract 

By David Fishtock, Science Editor 

THE GOVERNMENT has 
approved a £I0m contract for 
reprocessing spent nuclear fuel 
at Windscale. on similar terms — 
including a 40 per cent down- 
payment — to those of the £500m 
contract with Japan signed by 
British Nuclear Fuels last month. 

The contract, now awaiting sig- 
nature. is understood to be with 
Holland for 34 tonnes of spent

viewers while another, locally produced and directed, is 
given over to old men reminiscing and giving their views on 
modem life gently nudged on by a local young presenter. In 
theirown show once a week the children do their own thing 
singing, reciting and dancing traditional dances. These, of 
course, are performed often offscreen in and out of the 
home. 

Now that families have put down roots, arts previously 
impractical in a society on the move are being given a 
chance to flourish. The young Qatari artists, encouraged 
by the Department of Culture and the Arts, a newer off- 
shoot of the Ministry, held their ov n exhibition recently of 
the formative arts in the gallery of the Qatar National 
Museum, and the Qatar Theatre group is being established 
along professional lines. 

The museum, incidentally, forms a complex, including 
an aquarium, of beautifully restored traditional style 
buildings standing whitewashed and serene in the sun along- 
side, a lagoon where antique dhows are moored. Once the 
boyhood home of H.H. The Emir. Sheikh Khalifa bin 
Hamad al-Thani, it offers all the diiJdren in Qatar and their 
parents a living picture of the State’s life. It’s an interesting 
place, alive and well thought out — with excellent aircondit- 
ioning which is always a bonus in the long hot summer. You 
can savour there the traditional atmosphere of the Majlis 
(traditional Arab sitt ingroom) and remember that nothing 
will ever replace the art of conversation as a way of passing 
the time. • 


Football is the most popular sport in Qatar. 


Out of doors, spending a night under the stars eating 
roasted sheep round a camp fire wili recreate the desert 
life for children while the very lucky ones may enjoy a 
longer hunting trip and a chance to practise Qatar's national 
sport, falconry. Most families have to be content -with a 
weekly picnic to the desert where the sun glints on car 
bonnets parked under the flat topped thorn trees. 

In Qatar there are plenty of open spaces for football 
and the most promising players are trained professionally. 
Qatar fields its own international team and hosts matches 
in the new stadium built for the 1976 Gulf Games. There's 
horse and camel racing too. The racecourse at Rayyan is 
professionally run to a high standard. Next year there is to 
be show jumping in the hew arena. 

Finally there’s the sea and here the wheel has come full 
circle because the sea is Qatar’s first love. The harvest of 
the sea in pearls and fish used to provide a living and even 
now peari diving is done — as a challenge. Many Qataris 
own boats ranging from ageing dhows to smart cabin 
cruisers and sailing and fishing in the quixotic Gulf waters 
provide relaxation and a respite from the heat. 

So the tapestry of every day life in Qatar is woven with 
the colours of the sea and sand and reflects a peace and 
tranquillity typical of its desert people.

Spending from fund up 18% 


and linked because if the pumps stop age. 


© NEWS ANALYSIS— FOOTWEAR DISTRIBUTION 


BY DAVID FREUD 

THE MAIN component of 
Government spending — from the 
consolidated fund — rose 13 per 
cent in April and May compared 
with the same period a year ago. 

The increase was roughly in 
line with the Budget forecast 
of an increase of 17 per cent 
for the 1978-79 financial year. 

Expenditure from the fund 
rose £ 1.3bn to £8.2bn in April/ 


May compared with the same two 
months last year. But at this 
early stage it is not possible to 
extrapolate safely rrom the trend, 
especially as the figures are not 
seasonally adjusted. 

The central government bor- 
rowing requirement is especially 
affected by seasonal variations, 
because on the revenue side of 
the equation the bulk of the 
Budget tax cuts have not yet 
worked through. 


The raw figures show that rhe 
borrowing requirement rose 30.9 
per cent to £2bn in April/May. 
compared with a Budget forecast 
for the whole of the year of ;i 
44.4 per cent increase on the out- 
turn for 1977-78. 

The figures show that while the 
nationalised industries have been 
borrowing more, local . authori- 
ties have cut the amount bor- 
rowed from the national loans 
fund.

slowed down in the past three 
years but in 1977 multiple foot- 
wear chains were still trading on 
average of 46.9 per cent. This 
compared with 34.6 per cent for 
the average independent shop. 
(Independents are, in some cases, 
buying from wholesalers which 
also have to make a profit). 

In 19/i British Shoe's gross 
margin of 47.2 per cent was 
slightly less than in 1976. One 
of its multiple competitors was 
trading at a margin of 53.3 per 
cent. 

The commission considered 
the industry's arguments that 
high gross margins were needed 
because of the low stock turn 
and the risks involved in selling 
high fashioa merchandise. 

But it concluded that the 
increase in gross margins was 
not justified by any change in 
the r 3 te of stock turn. The stock- 
turn in retail footwear had, 
remained virtually unaltered at 
about 2.6 per cent in the ten 
years to 1971. Margins had 
increased 37 per cent. 

The commission accepted trade 
arguments that in some senses 
shoe retailing is competitive. 
Customers use good shoe leather

before cboosing shoes. But the 
existence of manufacturers'

branded shoes meant price com-

that it has not been fighting bard 
enough to exploit its position 
both as a major buyer of shoes 
and as a major retailer. It 
Hives the corporation top marks 
for efficiency. 

But in the commission's view 
ihe corporation, trading at such 
high gross margins, has allowed 
less efficient competitors to trade 
at similar levels.

I COAL BOARD officials yesterday 
j drew up contingency plans aimed 
I at avoiding a halt lo production 
from the xorlcshire coalfield if 
36 pit rescue workers carry out 
their threat to strike on Monday. 

But Yorkshire miners' leaders 
are seeking legal opinion on the 
Board’s plans for providing 
emergency cover. 

Mr. Arthur Scarg ill, Yorkshire 
president, said that engineers 
employed by the miners' union 
were not satisfied that full cover 
could be provided. 

The Yorkshire group -from 
rescue stations .at Doncaster, 
Rotherham and Wakefield have 
rejected a package deal giving 
them more than £20 extra a week 
despite the decision of tbe 
executive of the National .Union 
of Mincworkers lo accept a pay 
and conditions regrading offer 
for the country's pit rescue 
workers. 

Mr. Joe Gorraley, NUM presi- 
dent. said yesterday the group 
were “ out on their own."' The 
rescue workers, he said, were 


now '* at the top of the wages 
tree " and were overwhelmingly 
outnumbered in a 21 to 3 vote 
to accept the new deal. 

The. Coal Board in Doncaster, 
said: “We are surprised and dis- 
appointed. It is a . genuine 
to correct anomalies. 
and deficiencies in the whole 
ra *J 8 e of wages and conditions.” 

Mr. Tom King, Conservative. 
Opposition Energy spokesman, 
has written to Mr. Tony Benn, - 
Energy Secretary, to express 
concern at. his -proposal to give . 
unions the right to yeto pit 
closures. ..’•••• - ^ ■ . . 

Mr. King said tiW believed the - 
plan could cause “absolute 
chaos." "it is not the role of 
unions to be saddled with tbe - 
ultimate responsibility. That is - 
the -job of management working 
through the proper consultation 
procedures.” 

• Over 1.000 foremen and . 
supervisors at Ford's Dagenham

week in a protest against shop :

to pass judgment on the form of

FOR INCOME SEEKERS 



INTEREST RATES are stand- 
ins « &eir: highest levels far 
-the -year.- So the advice given 
earlier on, that investors think- 
ing of buying-an annuity should 
wait, baa been profitable for 
them. The . hnmbers of inves- 
tors buytag^anniiities tends to 
be lituited;. but many more 
people; who s ' are self-employed, 
and who are reaching retire- 
ment;; may - not realise that 
-similar -considerations apply to 
-thexti: . They, too, should watch 
interest rates in order to maxi- 
mise .their pensions. 

"-The. basic. method. .of provid- 
ing a self-employed pension, 
whatever the ; form, in which it 
Is- dressed-up, is simply to 
accumulate a fund from invest- 
ment of the contributions, and 
use the sum so accumulated to 
purchase an annuity at the time 
of retirement The contracts 
contain . a guaranteed set of 
minimum annuity rates, but 
current rates are far higher 
, than the underlying guarantee. 

.With annuity rates fluctuating 
with changing interest rates, the

LIFE ASSURANCE broking is 
now expanding into the field of 
investment -advice. This is the 
conclusion to be drawn from 
figures presented by Towry 
Law, the Windsor-based insur- 
ance brokers. For the first time 
they have given a breakdown of 
their new" business pattern by 
commission. The table is 
shown below, and the company 
intend to issue the figures at 
regular intervals. . 

Over one-third of its business 
— single premium bonds and 
unit trusts— is pure investment 
The life assurance broking 
business involved is minimal. 
And other major life brokers 
are reporting a similar pattern 
-of business. But how well 
equipped are brokers to give 
investment advice? And should 
such business be confined to 
specialists, and left alone .by 
the small high street broker? 

These are. two questions fac- 
ing life asurance brokers at a 
time when ..they are. trying to 
show the pubhc that; brokers 
.have at least ft minimum of ex- 
pertise and experience. Ah even 
more pertinent question is how 
brokers should be remunerated 
'for providing axi investment ad- 
vice service. ; 

Towry Law has- thought long 
"and hard on all thrte questions. 
As to. the expertise, ithas taken 
the view, that it mnot^ord-tn 


pension per unit of the under- 
lying fund when interest rates 
are high than, when they are 
low. For example, an investor 
with Scottish Life, retiring now 
at 65 and having paid 15 years' 
premiums of £100, could expect 
to receive f 546.60 p.a., whereas 
one retiring three months ago 
at the same age, having paid the 
same premiums - and received

the same bonuses could have 
expected to receive £521.76 p.a. 
And once it has-been taken, ibe 
size of the pension will not 
change. 

The self-employed have con- 
siderable flexibility over the 
time at which they take their 
pension. Unlike people who arc 
employed, they can cash in 
their contracts and start draw- 
ing their pensions while still 
working. Also, many of them

fessionals. It therefore seeks out- 
side advice on an regular con- 
sultancy basis, using stock- 
brokers Hoare, Goveft for unit 
trust advice and paying a fee 
for the service. Various officials 
in Towry Law talk to investment 
managers of the life companies 
with which it deals. And the 
company is flooded with brokers’ 
circulars from tile companies, 
large and small, setting out 
their thinking bn the current 
investment scene. . 

Towry Law’s answer to the 
question of remuneration is that 
clients cannot reasonably be 
charged a fee for the service at 
this stage. It is difficult to justify

persons who have to stop work 
an a given day. They shuultl 
use this flexibility to maximum 
advantage. 

If interest rates are low, but 
expected to rise, then it would 
pay to defer retirement. Con- 
versely if rates are high it may- 
well pay to rash-in early. Life 
companies are now Introducing 
a facility whereby investors can 
cash-in part of their contract, so 
someone needing a part at least 
of his pension could cash-in 
such a part at one point and the 
rest loter when conditions were 
more favourable. 

Life companies cannot really 
be expected to advise investors 
on their timing. The advice 
should come from the in- 
dividual’s personal adviser — 
insurance broker, accountant 
or solicitor. The article below 
deals witb the growing role of 
insurance brokers in giving in- 
vestment advice. This could be 
another service to the self- 
employed. 


charging a fee when the advice 
is to do nothing. Towry Law 
believes that life companies, in- 
stead, should ’consider remuner- 
ating the broker, but other 
brokers are not so inhibited on 
this subject. 

The Life and Pensions 
department of J. H. Minet has 
just launched a financial plan- 
ning service for clients, and 
has no qualms about charging 
an annual fee (and additional 
charges for some services). 
Some small financial planners 
offering an investment service 
and - putting people into 
life assurance bonds charge a 
fee quite unabashed. We have 
written several times on switch- 
ing funds to maximise returns, 
and who else can advise clients 
but the (insurance brokers? 

The brokers are adamant on 
one point Their advice is non- 
discretionary: that is, they 'will 
give advice but the client has 
to accept responsibility for 
taking it, and he is always free 
to reject it. 

The question of whether the 
small high street broker, with- 
out- investment training, should 
be in this field is a contentious 
one. Surely such brokers should 
make use of life company circu - 1 
Jars, but surely, too. they should i 
inform the client that they are i 
not experts. It may be un- 
realistic to hope for that but 
ft would be the honest course. 


DISMAL THOUGH liio week's 
news may have been for those 
of us who need to borrow, for 
those with money to lend it has- 
been very good indeed. Every- 
thing is running in favour of 
those who want to invest their 
capital for income. And they 
should lake advantage of these 
circumstances. Now. 

How they should take advan- 
tage of them is, however, a 
rather more difficult matter. As 
the table indicates, if you want 
income above all else Ihc best 
way to achieve it — now and 
always — is by taking out an 
annuity. But though the return 
is high — higher than it appears, 
because part of it is rax free, 
too — it does mean that the 
investor and his (or her) heirs 
must abandon ail claim to the 
capital so committed. So what 
do you do if you are not pre- 
pared to make the sacrifice? 

Well, you could co into gilts. 
Of those shown in the table — ail 


of which are on the National 
Savings Slock itegi-icr. which 
means that Iney t-an he obtained 
at a minmuni cost in terms of 
commission, and ihai the in- 
come will cornu to you gross'- 
the two lony-dated stocks offer 
a better return than can be 

obtained, Willi commensurate 

safety, anywhere else. But there 
are two drawbacks to be faced 
in buying them. 

The . first is obvous enough: 
that both are priced above their 
par value. That means that if 
you hold ih em to maturity you 
w-iH get back less, in the way of 
nominal capital, than you put 
in in the first place. Blit given 
that you will enjoy a very high 
income in the meantime, that 
should tiki bmher yuu unduly. 

The second drawback is more 
serious. The income arising on 
investment in a gilt will be 
static. And even though, with 
this latest pad-age oF govern- 


mental measures, we appear 
to have weathered an economic 
crisis again it cannot be 
assumed that prices will be static 
too. If you assume that infla- 
tion will be mruiin gat an aver- 
age of 10 per cent per annum 
through the next decade, the 
£1.320 a year you can look for 
now' from a £10,000 investment 
in Treasury 15£ per cent 1996, 
will be worth only just over 
£400 in present-day terms by 
19SS. 

Moral: you need an income 
that will not only keep you now, 
but will rise in future. There 
are two ways of achieving that. 
On the one hand you can keep 
your options open by limiting 
the duration of your invest- 
ment. Under normal circum- 
stances, if you wanted to take 
that course you would have to 
accept a sizeable penalfyin terms 
of income, but at the moment 
that iG not the case. You should 


put your money into a three 
year term share with a building 
society, or even better, a two 
year negotiable local authority 
bond, at well over 11 per cent. 

The risk you take with this 
course is that interest rates will 
be much lower by the time this 
investment matures: and when 
you come to reinvest the pro- 
ceeds you will have to content 
yourself with a lower income. 
Much better, really, to put the 
money into something where 
you can be reasonably certain 
that, though the income may 
start off at a relatively low level, 
it will increase: and that means 
equities. The high income funds 
— Gartmore is on the point of 
launching another at just over 
9 per cent — may be less attrac- 
tive than gilts m terms of imme- 
diate income: but for anyone 
looking for income over the 
longer term they should prove 
a considerably better buy.

An individualist’s brew 


IF YOU brew your own beer, 
why not cash in on the current 
craving for real ale? 

CAMRA’s done it. The big 
brewers are doing it And 
there is no reason why you, 
with a bit of money to buy the 
equipment, should not blaze a 
trial with your very own brand. 

Obviously it is a help if there 
is some sort of outlet at hand 
and you do not have to rely 
on a few thirsty friends to pro- 
vide some return on your 
investment. So it is no surprise 
to learn that virtually all the 
commercial “one-man bands” in 
the brewing industry are either 
publicans or restaurateurs. 

I say “virtually” because the 
20th Laird of Traquair 
fits no easy category, and indeed, 
best exemplifies the individualis- 
tic spirit of a commercial 
sector which until recently was 
almost completely dominated 
by the big beer barons. For 
about 10 years now Peter Max- 
well Stuart, owner of the oldest 
inhabited castle in Scotland, 
has been producing what he 
claims is the strongest brew in 
the UK. Traquair House Ale, 
and Traquair Naturally Condi- 
tioned, were in fact born by 
accident after he discovered 
three old copper 18thHcentury 
fermenting vessels hiding 
under generations of debris in 
a forgotten outhouse. 

These vessels, says the canny 
laird, impart that little hit of 
'“je ne sais quoi” to his beer, 
and together with clear spring 
water, malted barley, hops and 
yeast from the nearby Belhaven 
brewery, provide an undoubted 
recipe for success. 

Pcier Maxwell Stuart may be 
one of the more colourful and 
ambitious of the private 
brewers, but he is by no means 
alone. In the past two to three 
years, in fact, there has been a 
remarkable growth in the num- 
ber of tiny beer entrepreneurs. 

According to CAMRA (the 
Campaign for Real AJei there 


were, until relatively recently, 
only four known pubs in the 
UK brewing their own concoc- 
tion for strictly local consump- 
tion. Two are in Shropshire, 
one is in the West Midlands 
village of Dudley, and the other 
is tucked away in the Cornish 
community of Helston. 


GOING SOLO 

TIMOTHY DICKSON 


This picture, however, now 
seems to have changed dramatic- 
ally. Tlte 1978 CAMRA year 
book now lists at least ten pubs 
and restaurants where beer is 
brewed either on or exclusively 
for the premises where it is 
drunk. Take the John Thompson 
Inn, for example, in the Derby- 
shire village of Melbourne, 
where the brewing of JT Special 
(no prizes for guessing what 
the initials stand for) began on 
Jubilee Day last year. John 
Thompson now sells about 36 
gallons of his own beer a week, 
including a lager at S4p a pint. 

By contrast, there is Eliza 
Lewis, 71-year-old proprietor of 
the All Nations at Telford, 
Shropshire. She uses a recipe 
developed by her father well 
before the First World War, 
and at 23p a pint she sells 3 30 
gallons a week. Drinkers, she 
claims, come from near and far 
and, boosted by visitors to the 
nearby museum, trade has 
picked up significantly in the 
past two or three years. 

Real Ale hysteria is not the 
only catalyst in this mini 
revival of “ brewing your own ” 
for sale to third parties. Quite 
clearly, it provides a lifestyle 
most of the new participants 
enjoy. There are even some 
commercial factors. With the 
increasing cost of a pint, the 


small operator with no advertis- 
ing, distribution, and admini- 
strative casts can quite possibly 
undercut one of the large 
brewers and still make a profit. 

There are problems, of course. 
After acquiring all the equip- 
ment, one of the biggest could 
come in the form of a local 
Customs and Excise official. If 
you are going to brew for sale, 
first of alt you will have to apply 
for a brewing licence* under 
section 127 of the 1952 Customs 
and Excise Act. Armed with this 
(which costs £16). you ihen have 
to comply with the Beer Regu- 
lations oE the same year. There 
are nine parts to these, consist- 
ing of no less than 72 separate 
and highly technical regulations 
which relate to matters snch as 
the brewing process; storage 
arrangements and measurement 
facilities. In the process of work- 
ing your way through these 
you’ll learn about Mach tonnes, 
drawback (or spilt beer), and 
discover that the Excise officer 
collects his duty at the Wort 
stage (which, for the uniniti- 
ated, is prior to fermentation). 
Duty, incidentally, is calculated 
by measuring the ale's strength 
or specific gravity. Regular in- 
spections of your premises will 
be made, and you are required 
to notify the Customs and Excise 
officer 24 hours in advance of 
any brew. He is entitled to make 
spot checks during this period. 

You may also have difficulty 
producing a beer which has 
uniform characteristics — so 
your customers may start to 
complain. And at the end of 
the day, although you may he 
making a fairly high percent- 
age profit on each pint, with a 
limited volume potential you 
may nut feel you're getting a 
decent return. But if setting 
up your own brewery should not 
be taken lightly, don't be put off 
by the professionals or the 
Customs and Excise man. You 
can always take heart from the 
20th Laird of Traquair. . . .

TARGET A 





Highlighting the best performing unit trusts in the various specialist 
sub-sections in 1977 the Investors Chronicle 14th April, 1978 stated :— 
“...Target American Eagle, very much against the trend ... 
rose 15.5% in the North American section 1 *. 

Over the same period the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 17%. 


InJuIy1977we announced to unitholders 
our intention to increase the American 
content but we held off because of the 
weakness of Wall Street and the dollar. 


shall continue to use our discretion in this 
respect. 

The aim of the Fund is to achieve longer 
term capital appreciation and we believe 


Thecorrectnessof this decision is reflect- the case for investing a part of your 


ed in the performance compared with 
funds invested wholly or substantially in 
America over the past year. 

During 1978 we have increased theU.S. 
content from 48% io75?j .taking advant- 
age of the lower share prices and also 
because we fell that the period of relative 
strength of the pound against the dollar 
was at an end. It is our intention to increase 
the U.S. content still further but timing 
remains of the utmost importance and we 


capital in North America with such an aim 
in mind is now very strong. Share prices, 
in terms of the established yardsticks are 
historically cheap. U.S. inflation rates are 
low in global terms and America is after ail 
the largest and most advanced economy 
in the world. 

Remember the price of units and the in- 
comef rom them can go down as well as up. 

Your investment should be regarded as 
long term.

! to excellent shopping. Local 
' centres lihe Hampstead Village 
, and St. John's Wood High 
j Street still offer expensive, but 
convenient shopping Facilities. 

; Many people prefer to make 
i use of Brent Cross fnr repeat 
; bulk retail purchases. The West

seas visitors but many shoppers 
: cannot face the travelling and 
i sheer mass of crowds. 

I Lucal open spaces like Hamp- 
1 stead Heath and Regents Park 
; too. contribute to the popularity 
[of the area. The London Zoo

Fiat Rrtmo 


A question of names 


BY STUART MARSHALL 


WttATS IN A NAME? Quite 
.— -«-'lqt for a car maker, because 
the. name given to a new model 
:• &8S to be internationally acceni- 

* . *We. Not ail of them are. 

•- Consider the Rolls-Royce that 
■ succeeded the Silver Cloud 111. 
It was to have been called the 
Stiver MisL Ail the brochures 
had been printed when a panic 
call came from the Continent to 
say that “mist” was not a word 
to be used, in -polite company 
. -in Germany. So Silver Shadow 
the car became. • 

Ritmo means rhythm in 
Italian. In English, nothing. To 
me it has a cheap and disagree- 
able sound. Fiat England 
agonised over their parent com- 
pany's choice but finally decided 
to go along with ih So the first 
Fiat's new generation models, 
which' was unveiled at Turin 
Show last April and will reach 
Britain early next year, will be 
called the Ritmo here, too. 

Raring tried a couple' nf 
Ritonos (the plural is even 
worse, isn't it?) in Italy last 
week, I can’t see that any name, 
however unfortunate, - is going 
to harm its prospects. It bas 
everything buyers of “C" 
.category cars (that it, the small/ 
medium family saloon or hatch- 
.. iback) can reasonably require. 

More cars of. this kind are 
sold in European .countries than 
.any . other .except for Italy and 
-: ; Sp5un;'jvhere the best sellers are 
. a little smaller due to low wages 
aad sUy%igh petrol prices. 

Fiat researchers reckon that 
,by the early 1980s more than 

• one European car -in four will 
/■ be. in the “C.” category, and 

they intend that eight in every 
100 of them will be Ritmos. 

For Eiat, the Ritmo marks a 
complete. break , with styling 
tradition. .Other than the XI /9 
sports : cav it is their first now 


car for years that one does not 
know at a glance is a Fiat be- 
cause of its family resemblance. 
I thought 1 detected a hint of 
VW Passat from the rear quar- 
ter and of the Renault 5 from 
the front. But the overall effect 
is of a highly original car, 
modem to the point of being 
slightly futuristic, yet highly 
practical. _ 

It makes the boldest use so 
far in a mass-produced ear of 
very large plastic pressure 
mouldings to protect the body 
bumper without expensive 
panel beating or repainting. 

The entire front end from 
headlamp centreline to aerody- 
namic spoiler is a single mould- 
ing.' At the, back another one 
serves as bumper, number plate 
and rear lamps mounting. The 
Ritmo's self-coloured plastic 
nose and tail .withstand . 4 mph 
bangs without damage. In 
heavier impacts. Fiat says it is 
often enough just. to replace the 
number without expensive panel 
beating or repainting. 

Noting a more rational 
approach to car .design among 
“ C " segment buyers. Fiat 
makes it clear they are demand- 
ing customers. They want s mail- 
car economy and -executive- car 
comfort, and silence with ample 
performance at a reasonable 
price. Reliability'' and minimal 
servicing are taken for granted. 

Mechanically, ' . the Ritmo 
breaks little hew 'ground. The 
engines — a choice of . I J00, 1,300 
and 1,500 cc"in4ine four- 
cylinders with belfdriven over- 
head camshaft— -have all been 
developed from fee ten-year-old 
Fiat 128 unit. They' deliver 60. 
65 and 75 horsepower respec- 
tively and the models they go 
into are called the Sitxna60. 65 
and 75. which even I , should 
bave.no difficulty ifr remember-*

The bodies are three or five- 
door with de-luxe or comfort 
de-luxe trim; four' or five-speed 
gear boxes are available in the 
60 and 65. The 75 has five- 
speeds as standard or a three- 
speed automatic transmission. 
This is supplied by Volkswagen 
for the time being but Fiat will 
have their own later. 

Most interestingly. Fiat also 
plan a 1,600 cc diesel Ritmo 
next year. Taking a leaf out of 
VW's book, they are ‘‘dieselis- 1 
ing” the Fiat 132'& twin over- 
head camshaft petrol engine. 
The cylinder head will be 
replaced by one with a single 
overhead camshaft but most of 
the other parts will be retained, 
just as they are in the VW Golf's 
diesel engine. 

Apart from being shapely, the 
Ritmo's body has a very low 
wind resistance which helps 
fuel consumption. In fifth gear — 
a proper overdrive that reduces 
engine revs by 17 per ceut 
compared with fourth gear — all 
manual Ritmos do between 33 
and 34 mpg at a steady 75 mph. 
They are all about three mph 
faster in fourth than fifth: top 
speeds are 87 mph (the Ritmo 
60 ». 93 mph (the 65) and 99 
mph (the 751. The automatic is 
a little slower and signicantly 
thirstier than the manual 75. 

Driving the cars on roads 
ranging from broken-surfaced 
lanes to semi-flooded autostrada. 
it soon became clear that Fiat 
had tuned out practically all 
sources of noise. 

In the Ritmo 75, which I 
tried first, there was as little 
mechanical, road or wind in- 
duced noise as you would expect 
in a car costing £6,000-plus. The 
driving position was excellent, 
the suspension smothered any 
road roughness and the handling 
was as good as .the wide track 
and long wheelbase suggested 

would be. Only the gear- 
shift was a. let-down, being "es 
vpgue and rubbery as the other 
controls were precise. 

. mhe Ritmo 60 with four-speed 
gearbox I tried later was not 
as V sepulchral as the 75— it 
soudded like , a Fiat 128 with 
a hiisb kit fitted — but was still 
a most refined family-size car. 

Fiat say the old 128 will 
carry on for some time to come 
though eventually the Ritmo 
must replace it. Prices have 
not been fixed but. if the cars 
were here now, they would 
probably be in the £3.000 to 
£3,500 range. 


And so 
the odds 
change 


MEMPHIS, Tenn., Friday. 
JACK NICKLAUS has been 
automatically installed as 
favourite in every major 
championship for so long it 
is interesting to bear that the 
odds makers in Las Vegas have 
discarded him in favour of 
Lee Trevino in next week's 
U.S. Open Championship. The 
premier American event returns 
to fee scene of Arnold Palmer’s 
solitary triumph in it at Cherry 
Hills Country Club in Denver, 
Colorado, in 1960. on a golf 
course set over a mile high 
which places a far greater pre- 
mium on finesse than length — 
thank goodness. 

I have no wish to disparage 
j the awesome talents of my good 
friend Andy Bean who won the 
i Kemper Open last Sunday in 
Charlotte. North Carolina, with 
ridiculous e3se. But the wily 
i Trevino was able to nominate 
Beim as the likely winner, and 
did so in print after 36 holes 
of the tournament. This was 
because it was played at Quail 
Hollow Country Club, where a

My partner in the North seat 
dealt at love all and opened the 
bidding with one heart. My best 
response is three clubs, North 
will raise to four dubs, I then 
bid four, diamonds, and bid six 
clubs after North cue-bids his 
spade Ace, The club slam is 
|on ice. 

i Unfortunately, the bidding 
! did not. proceed on the lines 
I have suggested, and I found 
myself in a contract of six no 
trumps, whidi is clearly inferior 
to. six clubs. West led the 
diamond Knave, and I took 
stock.. The position of the spade 
King was of paramount im- 
portance. Unless East had it 
there -was no real chance of 
making 12 tricks. 

So winning the diamond lead 
with dummy's Queen, I at once 
returned the four of spades. If 
East, rises with.lus King, all 
problems are at an end. but 
East was far-seeing enough to 
follow with the five. When my 
Queen held the trick. I had two 
chances for my contract. If 
East had started with only 
three spades to the King, I 
could force out his King with 
a low card on the third lead, 
and so set up my Knave. 

But I felt feat he had started 
with four spades, and turned to 
my . -second . chance, that of 
making four tricks in hearts. A 
3-3 break . will give me four 
tricks but,, of course, 4-2 is the 


HALF-WAY through the £2.000 
Cutty Sark Grand Prix, the' 
national league for British chess 
congresses, the frontrunners in- 
clude most of the leading 
national players apart from the 
grandmasters who compete on 
the European circuit. 

Thi$ sprine the congresses at 
Nottingham. Blackpool and Rhyl 
attracted between them nearly a 
thousand entrants, while the high 
quality at the top is illustrated 
by thi6 pair of games played 
within three weeks of each other 
by two old rivals. The comments 
are based on analysis by George 
Botterill. the reigning British 
champion. 

White: A. J. WhiteJey. Black: 
G. S. Botterill. Opening: Modern 
Benoni « Blackpool Open 1978). 

The opening moves were 1 P- 
Q4. N-KB3: 2 P-QR4. P-B4; 3 
P-Q5, P-K3: 4 N-QB3. PxP; 5 PxP, 
P-Q3: 6 N-B3. P-KN3; 7 N-Q2. 
B-N2 (7 . . . QN-Q2 and if 8 N-B4. 
N-N3 gives an easier develop- 
ment; Black plans to exchange 
a bishop for the knight at QB4, 
but this is not very good). 

8 N-B4, 0-0; 9 B-N5. P-KR3; 
10 B-R4. P-N3, 11 P-K3, BR3; 
12 P-R4, BxN; 13 BxB. P-QR3: 
14 0-0, Q-B2; 15 P-R3. R-Kl: 16 
Q-Q3 (more precise is 16 Q-B2; 
Black's reply stops P-B4 because 
of RxKP). KN-Q2: 17 Q-Q2. N-K4: 
18 B-K2, P-B5; 19 KH-Bl. P-KN4 
(to give the knights room); 20 
B-N3, QN-Q2: 21 P-B4. N-N3- 

A typical Benoni situation, 
where White has two bishops and 
more space, while Black's active 
pieces give bira counterplay. 

22 N-Ql (winning a pawn, but

I cashed the Ace and followed 
with the nine. As you can see. 
if I had run tile nine, I would 
have made the slam, but 1 
played dummy's King. This 
wins if the suit breaks 3*3 or 
if East bolds the doubieton 
Queen or Knave, which is the 
percentage play. But I went

I decided to open the bidding 
with a norma] one club, my 
partner replied with one 
diamond, and my one no trump 
concluded the auction. West 
led the five of clubs, dummy 
played low. the King won, and 
East returned fee eight, which 
was won by the Ace. A diamond 
from the table allowed me to 
finesse the Knave in hand, and 
West showed out, discarding the 
two of spades. 

Prospects were far from 
bright However, West’s spade 
discard gave me an idea. If I 
could strip West of spades. I 
could catch him in an endplayjj 
by putting him on lead with 
a club. 

With this in mind, I ducked 
a spade in both hands. West 
won, and continued wife the 
Knave of dubs, which was 
taken by my Queen. I played 
a spade to the King and 
returned a spade to my Ace. 
happy to see both opponents 
following suit. The endplay 
was on. I threw West in ,

making two tricks in the suit (

definite premium is placed on 
length rather than accuracy. 

I hasten to add that Bean 
has a silken touch around the 
greens for such a big fellow, 
as has Toro Weiskopf. who has 
' won this lucrative event no lerf 
than three times in its 11-year 
history, and also taken away 
from Quail Hollow more than 
twice as much money as his 
nearest rival in that period, 
Ray Floyd, winner there in 
1975, who is himself hardly a. 
short hitter. 

But why has Nieklaus 

suddenly been overlooked in 
view oE his overbearingly 
successful start to the 197S 
season, and the fact that he was 
runner-up to Palmer at Cherry 
Hills as an amateur in 1960? 
The important evidence 

apparently is that Nickteus last 
won the U.S. Open 3t Pebble 
Beach in 1972, but more 

significantly, has not won any 
of the acknowledged four major 
titles since taking the U.S. PGA 
championship for the 4th time 
at Firestone Country Club. 
Akron. Ohio in August, 1975. 
Incidentally the South Course 
at Firestone has been Nieklaus's 
happiest of all hunting grounds 
in that he has won well over 
$500.00 on tho*e lush acres. 

The grim evidence is that 
Nieklaus bas only twice really 
been in contention in major 
championships since 1975. on 
both occasions to 1977 been 
beaten by Tom Watson in epic 
contests for the Masters and our 
open championships. Nieklaus

parably “dry" period when he 
went without a major champion- 
ship victory throughout 1968 
and 1969, having won the U.S.

that period of famine at St.

No one in his right mind 
would suggest that Nieklaus is

a spent force id major cham- 
pionships. The fact that he 
has decided to concentrate on 
them, while otherwise running 
down his career to concentrate 
on both his business and family 
life makes him almost more 
dangerous, rather than less. 

Nieklaus has proved perhaps 
better rtjan anyone ever that 
he does not have to keep com- 
peting to maintain his game at 
a pitch of perfection that few. 
If any, others have ever achieved 
except during one magical week 
when it has all come together 
for them. In terms of sheer 
longevity Nieklaus is a unique 
phenomenon in that the putting 
touch that has been such a 
vital factor in his 14 major 
championship victories since

turning professional in 1961, 
has never fully deserted him. 

So why arc the odds makers 
so keen on restricting Trevino’s 
price ? Firstly, this lovable, 
colourful character has geared 
his whole 1978 programme to- 
wards winning this champion- 
ship to set fee seal on his 
comeback after major surgery 
for the fusion of spinal discs 
that without exception w-e 
sceptics believed would finish 
him as a force in world class 
golf. Secondly, his three 
recent second place finishes and 
runaway victory in the initial 
Colonial National Invitational 
have revealed him to be abso- 
lutely ready, physically and 
mentally. Thirdly, most good 
judges regard Trevino as the 
finest manipulator of the golf 
ball since Ben Hogan. But 
his exaggerated slide through 
the ball bas been patently 
obviously his own recipe for 
avoiding a damaging hook. 

Now, Trevino, who scored 6S 
here yesterday, has even added 
the ability to move the ball in 
this way from right to left, 
under the control he felt he 
lacked previously to his 
armoury. Particularly in the 
minds of his rivals he has now 
become an even greater player. 
The only question mark that 
hangs over him concerns the 
6tate of his nerves on the 
nutting green, which some 
believe are not all they were. 

Further enormous interest in 
this championship at Denver has 
beeti created by the recent

after competing with such dis-

weeks and fee arrival of Seve

Americans are notoriously 
isolationist in their attitude to 
anything that takes place out-

is why the current World Cup

passing mention by the media

by the size of the gallery that

John Cloughessy, London man-

believes he is starting some-

to a coostantly-changing display 
of paintings. "It began when we 
were wondering what to do to 
mark Jubilee Year.” says 
Cloughessy. “ So we put some 
framed Turner reproductions in 
the window, showing views of 
Switzerland. They were a terri- 
fic success— people kept coming 
in off the street to ask where 
they could buy them.” 

The Banque du Rhone nou 
changes its pavement-view dis-

artistic diet between traditional 
and modern. It is current I?

SUMMARY OF THE WEEK’S COMPANY NEWS 


10 Take-over bids and mergers 


iration stake 


Vf PAUL CHEBEftMSHT 


ANACONDA, the US. copper pro- 
oucer which, is ,now. parr of the 
Atlande Richfield group, wE sot 
■tender its 20 -per. cent stake in 
UtspfmtfMt Coofiofldated copper 
to Hudson Bnr aCning and Smelt, 
tag- asd "Minoixo ' ft was 
anriotmced- fer-New York yester- 
dw. • 

Hudbay apd Mhiorco, two Anglo 
American oi South Africa units, 
earlier -in the week stated they 
praposed 'lo make a cash tender 
iSTer for the .equity id Inspiration 
they- do not already own.' Their 
ptwent stake Is 40 per cent, 
acquired in 1875 at a price of $37 
a share. 

The tender offer is $33 a share, 
putting- a *vsdue- of-$68m (£37. 4m) 
on the total of the shares they 
W*sh to buy. . Anaconda had 

earlier .rejected ah' offer of $30 a 
dare for its stake. ’ . 

Hndbay and Mioorco have not 
been .deterred by this second 
refusal - They stated in Toronto 
that the offer would proceed and 
that it _ win not be conditional on 
any minimum number of shares 


making a capital reduction oi 
25 cents on its shares of 50 cents 
par value. 

Grootvief, another Union Cor. 
poration company, declared an 
interim of Ifi cents (lO.ip), but 
this was broadly in line with ex- 
pectations. In the 1877 financial 
year, its Interim was 5 cents and 
it made a capital repayment of 
the same amount Its 1877 final 
was 14 cents. 


HIGHER OUTPUT 
AT AYER H TTAM 


■ Minorca shares closed at l&Op 
« the London market yesterday. 


MARIEVALE PAYS 
HIGH INTERIM 

.. Leaving market predictions far 
behind, Marterale, the South 
African gold producer with only 
a limited life remaining, yesterday 
declared an interim dividend of 
-32- cents (202p) for the year to 
December. The Interim last year 
was 22 cejotfi and the final 
r *4 cents. ' 

As expected Marievale is 


Tin concentrate production at 
Ayer Hftam, the Malaysian pro* 
ducer. rose last month to 229 
tonnes, despite the closure of the 
No. l dredge for nearly a fort- 
night as routine repairs were 
carried out, according to the latest 
output figures from the Malaysia 
Mining Corporation. 

But after 11 months of the 
current financial year, production 
came to 1,636 tonnes, compared 
with 4,033 tonnes in the previous 
year. The sharp disparity is 
because low-grade ground is 
being mined. 

Comparative output figures for 
the group are given in the

BIDS AND DEALS 


BTR, the British engineering group, is buying a 32 per cent 
stake at $30 per share in Worcester Controls Corporation, the 
U.S. valve concern which owns Worcester Controls of the U.K., 
and will bid for the rest of the shares at the same price. The 
hid values the Worcester group at $4Sm (£28Jm). The offer 
has not received the support of the three Norris brothers, who 
run the British company and believe that a higher offer could 
be obtained. 

The Office of Fair Trading, which is currently considering 
whether to recommend referral of the 29.85 per cent Saint Plran 
slake in A. Monk to the Monopolies Commission, will not be 
bound by its decision on the stake if it comes to a full bid. The 
OFT could decide not to recommend referral of the stake but 
then change its mind if Saint Piran attempted to establish greater 
or complete control. 

William Prym-Werke has received irrevocable acceptances 
of lg.7 per cent of the Newey Group equity and is duly proceeding 
with its 65p a share offer for the remainder on the terms and 
conditions already announced. 

Harrisons and Crosfield’s offer for Harrisons Malaysian 
Estates has gone unconditional. H. and C. had received a 31.9 per 
cent level of acceptances at the first closing date on Monday 
afternoon, bringing the total owned by the group up to around 
the 60 per cent mark. The level of acceptances is likely to suit 
H. and C. admirably because a high proportion of non-acceptors 
are Far-Eastern holders and if HME retains a large Malaysian 
following then the company will be some way towards satisfying 
that Government’s Malays huiisation programme. 

Spooner Industries, the Yorkshire-based plastics and textiles 
machinery company, has rejected the £2.4m cash bid from 
Redman Heenan on grounds of inadequacy. Spooner Industries 1 
shares rose sharply to 77p, a premium of 12 on the 65p a share 
cash terms offered by RH. 

The Board of KCA International has told its suitor, Air. 
Travis Ward, that it is " unable fully to assess the value of his 
approach " for the time being. The reason for the indecision, 
according to KCA. is that an earlier deal with Mr. Ward has not 
yet been completed. 

Newman Industries intends to make an offer to acquire the 
outstanding shares of Wood and Sons (Holdings) on the basis 
of around 47*p a share. 

Lex Service Group has agreed to purchase some 2m ordinary 
shares -in United Carriers from a group of investment funds. 
Payment will be satisfied by the issue of 1,010,550 ordinary shares 
of Lex plus £858,967 in cash. Lex views its increased United 
Carriers stake as a trade investment

- . Shareholders of W. Hensball 
and: Sons (Addlestone) were 
bombarded with three separate 

circulars yesterday. 

First they , received, the official 
offer document from Petford— 
which is bidding 30p. a share — 
reaffir ming that even if its offer 
fails it intends to stay put as a 
minority- shareholder. 

At that stage Petford had 7 per 
cent of the shares but within 
hours came the second document. 


This was from HenshajTs Board 
saying that it was Joining 
Petford's camp as far as its 20.9 
per cent holdings are concerned. 

Finally, Bovboarne the private 
company which acquired 50 per 
cent of Hensh all’s shares from 
three holdings and then made an 
offer of 20p to remaining share- 
holders, announced that It wants 
to have six of ^fts^-'own men 
appointed to HemhaU’s Board. It 
has called for an extraordinary 


meeting of shareholders to con- 
sider the appointments and warns 
that it intends to support the addi- 
tions to the Board with the utmost 
strength. 

Meantime, Heoshall’s Board says 
simply that Bovboume’s offer is 
insufficient and backs tip the claim 
with figures for the year to March, 
1978, which also suggest that 
Petford's offer is not over- 
generous. 

Pre-tax profits are said to be 
£244^68. more than two and a 
half times the previous year's 
£92.449, on turnover up from 


£2.1m to £2.65 m. Earnings per 
share are 4.3p on which basis 
Petford is offering an exit p/e 
of 7 and Bovboume is offering 
4.7. The dividend h3S been 
trebled to Zp per share (0.325p). 

The company has also taken the 
opportunity to revalue its pro- 
perties and net asset value is 
now said to be 47.2p a share.

Blade Investments hopes that 
shareholders of Marler Estates 
will reject its offer of 25p per 
share. The bid was necessary 
under the City Takeover Panel 
rules because Blade agreed to buy 
62 per cent of Marlcr. Blade 
intends to maintain the Stock 
Exchange quotation of Marler and 
reduce its stake to between 30 
and 40 per cent. 

An up-to-date valuation of 
Marler’s property shows that 
shareholders' funds are worth 
23.7p per share. But the shares 
have recently stood in (he stock 
market at above the offer price 
of 25 p per share. 

The hoard of Marler makes no 
recommendation to shareholders 
on whether to take the- offer., 
excepf to advise them to consult 
their professional advisers.

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

The aim is to produce not only a high income but ad. 
increasing income over the years coupled with capital 
growth: And this lias certainly been achieved -since 
February 197o when the trust was launched. New 
investors in this unit trust get an estimated gross 
commencing yield of 10%. In addition since the 
launch, the offer price of the units has risen by no l ess . 
than 6 1.2% compared with a rise of 18.52% in the FT 
Industrial Ordinary Index over the same period. 

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

London Wail Extra Income Growth Trust is aunic 
trust in the Tyndall Group which currently manages 
over £200 million on behalf of some 80,000 investors. 
You can invest in this trust ibr as little as £500. 

Remember that the price of units and the income 
from them can go down as well as up. 

You should regard tout investment as long term.

IN SPITE of the pour record 
of recent French challengers, it 
is difficult to understand why 
Dancing Maid is freely available 
at 7 — 2 for today's 200th renewal 
of the Oaks. 

Alec Head's Lyphard filly has 
won both her races this season 
in emphatic style, with her best 
performance in the Poule d'Essai 
de Pouiiches at Longcbamp- In 
that event — France's 1,000 
Guineas— Dancing Maid was 
□ever tackled, and ran out a five 
lengths winner from Fruhling- 
s tag. 

Although it is difficult to ascer- 
tain the value of that form, it 

EPSOM 
1.45 — Iceni Star 
2.20— Collapse*** 

2.55— Dancing Maid** 

3.30 — Tare mo 
4.05 — Bouse Guard 
4.35— Pathfinder* 


seems probable that the quality 
of the Poule Essai de 
Pouiiches field at least matched 
that of our own apparently sub- 
standard 1,000 Guineas. For this 
reason I have no hesitation in 
going far Dancing Maid, whose 
rider. Freddie Head, a former 
French champion jockey, should 
have no problem in this bandy- 
sized 15-runner field. 

If there tn be a surprise. I 
believe it will be created by 
Spring in Deepsea, who was 
clearly already feeling the effects 
of a virus when so disappointing 
in the Tote Free Handicap. 
Trainer Luca Cumani does not 
rate her quite in the same class 
as last year’s runner-up to Dun- 
fermline. Freeze the Secret: but 
then she might not have to be, 


to give him an overdue first 
classic success. 

The Queen, who owned Dun- 
fermline, has Tartan Pimpernel 
running for her this time, but I 
do nor expect this filly or another 
improving three-year-old in her 
ownership. Alma, among the 
runners for the Hermes Stakes, 
to prove quite up lo obliging this 
afternoon. 

Alma, who carries S st 9 lb in 
the valuable one-mile 110 yards 
Hermes Stakes, seems unlikely 
to be good enough to concede 
five lbs to Henry Candy's recent 
Salisbury winner, the Busted 
chestnut. Collapse. 

Thirty-five minutes before the 
Henues Stakes, that much- 
respected Epsom trainer. Staff 
Ingham, is remembered wltb a 
six-furlong event for two-year- 
olds carrying his na me. Here I 
intend taking a chance with the 
Newmarket challenger, Iceni 
Star, a respectable seventh of 16 
behind Mixed Applause on her 
local course recently. This filly, 
ridden by Paul Cook, one of the 
most underrated jockeys now rid- 
ing, is taken to win at the chief 
expense of the Dragnnura Palace 
colt, Kingsbere. The latter ran 
on strongly to win a 19-runncr 
event at York on his only previ- 
ous appearance-. 

Mr. Daniel Wildenstein. who 
was clearly surprised with the 
ease with which bis good colt 
Crow brushed aside the 
challenge of Balmerino in 
Thursday's Coronation Cup, 
could have more to be pleased 
about after the Asbstead Stakes. 
Here his Bold Lad (U.S.) colt 
Pathfinder can increase bis 
stallion value with a win over 
Gaugin. 

Pathfinder is a half-brother to 
Pawneese, one of Epsom's best 
postwar Oaks winners.

THE STATBOWNED PKbaok.

this . year. . If the . Swedish dis- 
count rate remains, at 7 per cent

2«M per. cent higher than in 
1977.’ - - -.i:.;*.-. 

- The 33 per cent profit- climb In 
the .first' four months was partly 
a recovery, from tbe relatively 

- poor performance in - the corres- 
pohding period on&sryear, when 
credit restrictions. were at their 
most, stringent Bat the swifter 
growth in the volume of business, 
the' lower discount rate, a re- 
organisation of the bank's place- 
ments . and a decline in the 

. interest rate paid on special 
deposits have also -played a part. 


STOCKHOLM. June 9. 


In contrast to developments 
over the past two years, the profit 
growth in the first four months 
came wholly on the domestic 
front, and not from the expan- 
sion of foreign business. The 
balance sheet total increased by 
15 per cent compared with 8 per 
cent during tbe first four months 
Of 2977. . 

-Deposits rose by 11 per cent, 
but PK bank’s share of total bank 
deposits dropped a percentage 
point to 21.4 per-cent because 
deposit growth was strongest in 
The business sector.- where the 
bank is weakest. Lending in- 
creased by 17 per Cf nt. 

Net interest income rose by 26

FN plans U.S. arms plant 


LIEGE, June 9. 


BELGIAN -small arms maker 
Flbrique Nationals Herstal (FN) 
plans to start producing machine 
guns and small arms in the U.S. 
next, year a move which it 
regards as essential in view of a 
Washington ruling, that halt the 
value of. all arms contracts 
granted by the Government must 
consist of U.S.-made products. 

FN, which last year took control 
of 'the Browning non-military 
firearms. company of the U.s„ is 
negotiating to -buy- a factory in 
SoqjLh Carolina, and intends to 
have some 300 people employed 
there by 1980. - - - 

It hopes tty attract new 
miufiiine gun. orders . from tbe 
UlSi-. Government -and is also 
completing- deliveries on an 
order won two years ago for 
10,000 machine guns from the 
U.St-army for. use on tank and 
armoured troop carriers. 

The • ' contract nxling was 


brought in after that order was 
obtained, and FN says “ it is. 
therefore, vital for us to open up 
our own production in the U.S. 
which will also improve our 
knowledge of . sub-contracting 
there.*' 

The company, Europe's largest 
maker of small arms, already 
has a factory in California 
producing golf clubs. Talks on 
the new arms plant should be 
completed in a -few months.

By James Forth 

SYDNEY, June 9. 
CSR, the major industrial and 
mining group, today made public 
its opposition to the Australian 
Government's proposed changes 
in its foreign investment guide- 
lines. revealed yesterday. The 
chief executive of CSR. Mr. 
R. G. Jackson, said that certain 
matters needed to be watched 
carefully if the guidelines were 
to produce the intended results. 

Tbe Government’s proposals 
represented a serious departure 
from the objective of retaining 
50 per cent Australian equity 
in new mineral projects, he 
argued. 

“ The commitment to natural- 
isation does not seem to be en- 
forceable. The time frame to be 
allowed is apparently open 
ended.” 

He suggested that instead of 
naturalising current forelgn- 
owned operations, companies 
could set up *'pup” companies 
and naturalise only new projects. 
Mr. Jackson maintained that this 
would make nonsense of the 
whole concept of naturalisation. 
He also suggested that the 
Government’s statement was not 
clear enough regarding company 
takeovers by companies granted 
honorary Australian status. 

it remained a major concern 
that the changes would permit 
a flood of foreign takeovers of 
smaller and weaker Australian 
owned resource companies. 


Branch profits 
to be taxed 


Financial Times Reporter 

FOREIGN COMPANIES with 
branch offices in Australia are 
to be taxed an extra 5 per cent 
on taxable profits in addition 
to the 46 per cent company tax 
from this fiscal year, ending 
June 30, Mr. John Howard, the 
Treasurer, has announced in Can- 
berra. Tbe move was fore- 
shadowed in tbe Financial Times 
last Friday. 

Mr Howard said that there 
was a lack of balance in the 
tax system between foreign 
companies with subsidiaries here 
and those with branch offices. 
Subsidiaries pay 15 per cent 
withholding tax on dividends re- 
mitted overseas whereas branch 
offices are exempt 

Non-resident life assurance 
companies, however, will be 
excluded as the additional tax 
on these profits wi/l be borne 
by local policy bolder*. 

The branch office tax will not 
apply for the whole of the cur- 
rent 3977-78, fiscal year, but for 
the period from November 4, 
1977, to June 30, 1978. 


BRITISH BANKS IN THE US 


Banking freedoms a major attraction 


BY DAVID LASCELLES IN NEW YORK 


“THE British are coming” is 
bow the U.S. Press headlined 
last month's announcement of 
National Westminster Bank's 
plan to buy the National Bank 
of North America for 8300m. 
Tbe excitement was due to the 
Tact that only a few weeks before 
the Hong Kong and Shanghai 
Bank (which was loosely termed 
here as a “British colonial 
bank ”) had agreed to take 
control of Marine Midland, one 
of the major New York banks, 
for some $260 m. 

Yet now, only four weeks later 
another British , bank, lias 
appeared on the scene with an 
acquisition that, in money terms 
at least, outstrips all the 
previous offers. 

Standard Chartered's decision 
to buy Union Bank in California 


for SS72m.mkes it the fourth 
major British bank to have 
moved into tbe U.S. banking 
scene by means of an outright 
purchase (the fifth if Hong Kong 
Shanghai is included) in the last 
five years. In addition. Midland 
Bank has made an appearance 
here, but as a member of the 
EBJC group which owns Euro- 
pean-Amerkun Bank. 

Combined, these purchases 
make the British banks by far 
tbe most prominent foreiRn 
banking presence in the U.S.. 
though tbe Germans. Dutch and 
Japanese are also beginning to 
make a mark. 

There are several reasons why 
European and other hanks from 
industrially advanced countries 
should be taking such bold 
strides into this market. 


One is that local banks do not 
have the market entirely tied 
up. U.S. banking laws are such 
that domestic banks are tightly 
restricted in their operations, 
particularly insofar as inter-state 
banking is concerned. No bank 
may operate branches In more 


provide wider-ranging services. 
Other reasons drawing in 
foreign hanks include the 
apparent low cost— in historical 
terms— of U.5. assets. The de- 
cline of the dollur has been cited 
by British banks as an important 
consideration in their decisions

the Frankfurt domestic bond 
market for DM 750ra ($375m) 
through the issue of a 10-year 
bond at 99. Coupon has been 
sei 3| 6 per cent. 

Tbe bond will be tbe first to be 
issued for some two months 
following a period of market up- 
heaval due largely to unsettled 
foreign exchange markets. The 
Bundcnsbank continued to pro- 
vide modest support for the 
market yesterday, and at the 
close the three tranches of the 
most recent state backed loan — 
which took coupons for long 
term inonc-v down to 5? per cent 
— were still standing at a dis- 
count. 

However, the Bundesbahn 
offering has been much more 
realistically priced, and dealere 
were expecting little difficulty in 
its placing. 


Credit Suisse 


CREDIT SUISSE has agreed with 
the tax department of the Can- 
ton of Tieino to pay SwFr -2.9m 
in back taxes and Cantonal stamp 
duty on behalf of Texon Finanz- 


anstalt. writes John Wicks from 
Zurich. 

Tbe payment consists of some 
SwFr 19m for outstanding direct 
taxes, including interest and 
fines, plus Cantonal stamp duty 
of about SwFr 3.9ra. 

Texon was last April named as 
the company through which 
SwFr2.2bn of clients' funds were 
improperly channelled from the 
Chiasso branch of Credit Suisse. 
Chiaso is siruarert in the Canton 
of Ticino, where criminal investi- 
gations continue into the Texon 
affair. 

Sleigh purchase 

H. C. Sleigh has purchased 
Executive Air Services Pt>’ h >‘ 
the issue r.r 1.03m 50 cent par 
shares, valued at 74.95 cents 
each, to the vendors. Reuter 
reports from Melbourne. The 
company engages in aviation 
engineering, sales, charter and 
localised passenger services. 

Sleigh said the purchase will, 
complement and considerably 
expand iis current aviation 
activities through its Forrestair 
division and the issue lifts 
Sleigh's paid capital to 76.15m 
shares from 75.12m. 


than one state (in some states 
they are even restricted to a 
stogie branch ), and within each 
state there are extra regulations 
governing the way they do 

business. 

These regulations, however, do 
not apply to foreign banks. This 
means that while Bank of 
America, the country’s largest 
bank, is confined to its home 
state of California, Barclays 
Bank is permitted to— and does — 
operate in both California and 
New York. In other words, 
foreign banks have a strong com- 
petitive advantage over domestic 
banks, enabling them to draw 
on a wider source of funds, and 


to buy. These banks have also 
been keen to develop their inflow 
of dollars, and the acquisition of 
a ready-made branch network 
in a U.S. state is probably one of 
the speediest and least compli- 
cated ways of doing it. 

Not that deals are easy to 
strike. In most recent cases there 
have been special reasons why 
the U.S. bank concerned was 
prepared to be taken over. At 
Marine Midland it was a short- 
age of capital, in National Bank 
of North America's case it was 
the desire of its owner CIT. a 
diversified concern, to rid itself 
of a bank and thereby escape the 
constrictions of the bank laws 


which were hampering its other 
operations. Even Standard 
tered’s success today fras pre- 
ceded some years ago by its 
failure to buy Bank of California. 

Foreign banks eyeing the U.S. 
market have also to consider tbe 
possibility — however remote it 
may currently seem— of a 
change in U.S. banking laws 
which could work to their disad- 
vantage. 

The growing foreign presence 
here has not passed without com- 
ment. much of it unfavourable. 
The latest issue of Bank Stock 
quarterly, published by Seh a- 
piros, tbe broking firm which 
specialises in bank securities, 
complains of the unequal oppor- 
tunities facing banks in the U.5.. 
citing specifically the recent 

acquisitions by Hongkong and 

Shanghai and NatWest, 

Banking legislation currently 
being examined by Congress is 
unlikely to curtail the present 
activities of foreign banks in 
the U.S. However, it is not clear 
bow new legislation would treat 
new entrants from abroad, as 
opposed to those who are already 
here. Thug there could be pres- 
sures on outsiders to get in 
sooner rather than later.

recovered, und I am therefore pleased to report that this 
has now been achieved since the dealing company made a 
profit after taxation of £61,081 for the year and was left 
with an. accumulated profit to carry forward of £33,898. 

A dividend ofl 5 i less Jersey J ncome Tax i payable 
on fhc income shares on the 26th day of June, 197S is 
recommended. This will absorb £120,000 out of the balance 
of £194.206 on the revenue ucccuinr for distribution for the 
year ended 3 1st December 1977, and leaves a sum of 
£74.206 to be curried forward in the accounts of the Trust. 
Under the present articles of the Trust the Board arc 
obliged to distribute all available income. However, we 
believe that shareholders would prefer it if when dividends 
arc increased there is at least a reasonable expect a lion that 
the div idend can be maintained at the increased lc\ cl. 

The proposed dividend of 15"„ for 1977 is higher by 20"a 
than the 1976 distribution and in the a bsenccof unforeseen 
circumstances we expect to be able to announce a further 
increase in ihe dividend for J 978. 

During 1 977 the Financial Times Ordinary Share Index 
rose by 36-S percent and the All Share Index rose by 41-1 
per cent. The Dow Jones Industrial Index adjusted for the 
dollar premium felt by 35-9 percent. The Trust assets 
during the year rose by S4-9 per cent, w hich can be 
considered very satisfactory. There are many diilicuitics 
and uncertainties which the market has to face in 1978 both 
on the political from and as a result of Ihe continuing 
recession in world trade but without minimising these 
difficulties, "e are hopeful that in the prevailing eondiiiogs 
Ihe Trust's investments w ill perform relatively well. 

Year to December 31st, 1977

ICl is now calculating the 


alternative costs of postponing 
the contract at this advanced 
stage, against completing thc

ICl admitted yesterday: 
“The total programme has been

acute embarrassment for the 
company, which has already 
faced intense union opposition 
to its plans for investment in

This opposition could now be 
stepped up following industry
