British Petroleum yesterday disclosed two major acquisi- 
tions which will reinforce its European operations at a 
cost of £430m. Its West German subsidiary is to buy the 
German energy company Gelsenberg. Its chemicals 


subsidiary is to takeover substantia] interests of Union 
Carbide. The moves involve a contract to supply West 
Germany with crude oil and will leave BP with a 25 per 
cent stake in Ruhrgas, the main German gas business.

Under the accord, parts of lbe 
Veba Group, Germany’s biggest 
enterprise in turnover terms , 
j will be sold to Deutsche BP for 
about DM 800m (£210m). 

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

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

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

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

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

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


The welcome is particularly 
directed at that part of the 
accord under which BP agrees 
to supply 3m tonnes of crude 
oil annually to Veba at a com- 
petitive price up to the year 
2000. 

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


Reduction 


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

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

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

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

By its Gelsenberg sale to 
Deutsche BP, Veba is ridding 


Slowing in rate 
of inflation 


itself of a 50 per cent share of a 
refinery m Bavaria and a 25 per 
cent stake in another, also in 
Sooth Germany. 

The upshot is -that those Veba 
refineries which remain should 
be operating once the deal goes 
through at about 85 per cent 
capacity, with consequent major 
benefits for Veba profitability. 

. Beyond this. Deutsche BP will 
also be gaming a 25 per cent 
stake in Ruhrgas. West Ger- 
many's biggest natural gas distri- 
butor. Veba regrets the loss of 
this important holding. 

But in the medium term, 
both sides expect the structural 
changes to bring greater profita- 
bility. 

. Tbe BP-Veba discussions have 
lasted many months in what 
Veba officiate call a particularly 
co-operative and fruitful manner. 

It is understood that other 
discussion; between Veba and 
the British Government are 
under way. involving possible 
Veba investment in Britain in 
the petro-chcmicals sector.

BP CHEMICALS is poised to 
make its biggest acquisition in 
Western Europe with the $400m 
(£220m) purchase of the main 
part of Union Carbide’s Euro- 
pean chemicals operations. 

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

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

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

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

With the purchase of the 
Union Carbide subsidiaries, BP 
Chemicals is acquiring busi- 
nesses with annual sales of more 
than S300m f£l63mj. Last year 
it made profits of £lS.9m from 
a worldwide turnover nf £661 m. 
Pre-tax profits in 1976 were 
£4S.8m. 


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

In a £lOm deal. Union Carbide I 
sold its BXL thermosetting ( 
plastics division to BP Chemicals 
last September. 

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

This sector of the plastics in- 
dustry' has been one of those 
hardest hit by falling prices and 
over capacity, but BP is confident 
of future growth based on tbe 
specialised product range 
developed by Union Carbide, 
especially for the wire and c.^ble 
industries.

BY PETER RIDDELL. ECONOMICS CORRESPONDENT 


THE SLOWING in the under- 
lying rate of retail price infla- 
tion appears to have ended for 
the tiine being. But the favour- 
able influences of the last year 
arestili resulting in a decline in 
the 12-mooth rate of increase. 

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

Mr. Roy Hattersley. the Prices 
Secretary, said yesterday that 
the figures confirmed bis state- 
ment last Sunday that the 22' 
month rate of inflation would 
remain at or about last month's 
level of 7.9 per cent for the rest 
of -the year. “In some mouths 
there will be minor falls; in 
other months there will be minor 
increases.” 

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


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

There is unlikely to be a sig- 
nificant rise in the 12-month rate 
in the figures to be published 
before an October election. 
Whether tbe rate by the end of 
the year remains in single figures 
or is just above 10 per cent, as 
some outside forecasters b3ve 
suggested, will depend partly on 
seasonal food prices later this 
summer. 

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

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

This stands at S.6 per cent 




I ■ W7S rm 1977 «B I 

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

The rise in the all-items index 
of 0.6 per cent in the month Co 
mid-May is exactly tbe same as 
in the first three months of 1978. 

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

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

Editorial Comment Page 14 


Mr. Len Burchell. managing 
director of BP Chemicals, said 
recently that the company would 
have ic diver: if/ its operations. 
Its particular vulnerability arises 
from its heavy concentration in 
base petrochemicals. 

Mr. Burchell said that the com- 
pany did not have a sufficiently 
wide spread of products to go on 
generating profits, when some 
parts of the business were in 
difficulty. 

The Union Carbide acquisitions 
offer BP Chemicals assured access 
to a large captive market for its 
base petrochemical products and 
also access to some specialist 
plastics technology. The Union 
Carbide operations employ 4.000 
people. 

Union Carbide made the first 
approach to BP Chemicals in 
March. One of the largest chemi- 
cal companies in the U.S., Union 
Carbide has run into difficulties 
in recent years with an invest- 
ment strategy based on expecta- 
tions of high growth. 

Other businesses in the U.K. 
have already been sold, and with 


Through the acquisition of 
Union Carbide Belgium, BP 
Chemicals will take its first 
major stake in the Continental 
markets for ethylene oxide and 
glycol, chemicals used in the 
manufacture of anti-freeze and 
solvents. 

All the Union Carbide plants 
offer BP significant extra outlets 
for its established ethylene 
capacity. Ethylene is the roost 
important base chemical made 
from petroleum with uses from 
plastics and fibres to paints and 
detergents. 

BP Chemicals has been facing 
an uncertain future. With few 
captive outlets for ethylene, 
unlike most chemical ompanies. 
tt could do little to solve its 
existing overcapacity problems. 
To make ijaatters worse it is com- 
missioning u new 500,000 tonnes 
a year cracker with 1CI at the 
beginning of next year. 

Much of this extra capacity 
could now find outlets in the 
newly acquired downstream 
plants. About 37 per cent nf 
the ethylene produced in 
Western Europe aoes to make 
liiw-densitv onlyeihylene and 
another 13 per cent goes to 
ethylene oxide, but until now 
BP had little or ao presence in 
these sectors. 

BP Chemicals’ operations in 
the UK were built up from the 
1950s in conjunction with Dis- 
tillers. Early on They formed 
a joint company. British Hydro- 
carbon Chemicals, but in its 
early years BP did little more 
than provide the petroleum feed- 
stock for the partnership. 

Similar joint ventures were 
started on the Continent with 
Bayer and Rhone Poulenc.

NEW YORK, June 16. 
BIG US. BANKS triggered a

CHAMPNEYS, the Tring health 
farm, and cither private medical 
interests of United Medical 
Enterprises have been bought 
for about £2.7m by Grovewood 
Securities, part of- the Eagle Star 
Insurance group. 

United Medical Enterprises is 
now controlled by the National 
Enterprise Board. 

The businesses have been for 
sale "since Allied Investments, 
which -owned them as well as 
medical exports and supplies 
activities, was taken over earlier 
this year by United Medical, in 
which the Enterprise Board 
holds 70 per cent and three 
institutions 20 per cent. 

It was made clear from the 
time of the 28m bid for Allied 


that tbe State-owned Enterprise 
Board felt that it would be 
inappropriate for its to retain 
control of private medical 
interests in the UK. 

Grovewood. an industrial hold- 
ing arm of Eagle Star, has a 
wide range of assets, including 
Brands Hatch motor racing cir- 
cuit, the Cambridge Theatre ic 
London and scientific instru- 
ments and builders’ merchant 
businesses. 

Mr. John Danny, who runs it, 
said last night: “We are con- 
cerned with people rather than 
products and we think the people 
running these interests are good, 
with a record of success." 

Also included in the sale art* 
the British Nursing Association, 
a nursing agency. Doctors’ Re- 


lief Services, which provides 
locum services, and several nurs- 
ing homes — Tbamesbanfc Nurs- 
The managers of these differ 
ent interests will continue 3nd 
assurances have been given that 
patients’ welfare will be fully 
safeguarded.

Since mid-April share prices on 
Wall Street have staged a sharp 
recovery. Whether this upturn in 
the market represents a brief rally 
only, or whether it heralds the 
beginning of a sustained bull market 
Js difficult to determine at this time. 
Even so, it is our firm belief that the 
market is now towards the lower 
end of its present cycle and tfiat r

recent days continues, the scope for 
capital gains is substantial in the

Ireland to cut 
public spending 

By Our Own Correspondent 
DUBLIN, June 16. 

THE GOVERNMENT of the 
Irish Republic Is to cut back on 
public expenditure over the 
next three years mainly in the 
area of social welfare pay- 
ments. 

A Green Paper on .the 
economy, published tomorrow, 
proposes that public spending 
on unemployment- benefit and 
oilier assistance should be 
reduced from 20.7 per cent of 
GNP this year lo 18.9 per cent 
next year aud 17.9 per cent in 
1950. 

Initially, the Government is 
planning a campaign to reduce 
the degree of frand by social 
welfare claimants. It is also 

considering the abolition of 
food subsidies which are 
estimated lo cost the Govern- 
ment about £60 tn this year. 
The ending of the subsidies 
would put an extra 2t»p per £ 
on buter alone and have 
ihe overall effect of pushing 
the Consumer Price Index up 
by 2 per cent In a full year-

Reform Secrets Act, 
urges Heifer 


BY OUR LOBBY STAFF 


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

Mr. ■ Heffer said that this 
pledge should be contained in 
the manifesto for the forthcom- 
ing election— “ although : every 
sign is * that, ttie Cabinet will 
resist any such motion." 

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


But almost four years after- 
wards. the best that can be ex- 
pected is a White Paper by tbe 
end of this session unlikely to 
contain any sweeping sugges- 
tions. 

Pressure for a Freedom of 
Information Act is in fact one of 
tbe main difficulties faced by 
Ministers framing The Govern- 
ment’s proposals. Many ,MPs 
have warned that- toa^mid an 
pproacb on Section Two will do 
more harm than good. . 

Speaking in Cheshire 
Heffer continued: “The ipti 
in Britain we have a freedp 
of Information Act the better, 
and it will not put any real 
financial burden on the Govern- 
ment"

Vickers compensation 


insulting— Robens 


BY TM DICKSON 


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

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

So far, Vickers has received % 
total of £7m from the Govern- 
ment for its 50 per cent slake in 
British Aircraft Corporation and 
its formerly wholly-owned ship- 
building subsidiary. 

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

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

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

Lord Robens told shareholders 
at yesterday's meeting that the 
total amount paid to Vickers for 
its share of BAC was £3.1m. “just 
a tiny percentage of the profits 
made by the assets taken over.” 
In 1977. -BAC. jointly owned by 
Vickers and GEC, bad made pre- 
tax profi ts of £53.6m, while 
Vickers' shipbuilding profits in 
the six months before vesting 
day. amounted to £3. 8m. 

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

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

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

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

“During the last four years in 
all these activities, wc have 
invested £74m.” 

Neither nationalisation In 
itself, nor the date of the final 
settlement, which was bound to 
take time, were the problems. 

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

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


ment. be maintained, was a 
warning Jo every shareholder of 
modest means. 

"They should understand that 
the basket of nationalisation 
which is promised us if another 
Labour Government is elected 
will virtually mean confiscation 
Of what they have.” 

Com men tins on the company’s 
performance in the current year. 
Lord Robens said results in the 
first few months had been 
“mixed 

Losses incurred by the offshore 
eiJgineer’ns group had per- 
sisted. while a strike in Canada 
and lack of activity in Australia 
bad also been factors in tbe slow 
start. 

So far this year. 24 companies 
have received compensation pay- 
ments fr"ni the Government 
totalling £26. 75m. 

Last night, the Industry 
Department said talks would 
soon be resumed with the parties 
involved and would last “until 
agreement is reached.” Failing 
this, comps ales could go to arbi-

‘More oil in China Sea 
in Gulf’ claim 


ISLANDS IN a little-known part 
of the South China Sea have a 
bigger oil potential than the Per- 
sian Gulf, a defendant in an Oid 
Baijey fraud trial claimed yester- 
day^ 

Mr.\ John Sidney Barnes. 48, 
economist, of St George’s Drive. 
Pimlico, denied being involved 
with a suspended Bank of Eng- 
ind official, Mr. John Martin 
ales, in a plot to obtain more 
an flm in dollar premium re- 
bates on non-existent securities. 

Mr. Barnes' counsel. Mr. Martin 
Tucker, QC. said Mr. Barnes* use 
of diplomatic passports, which 
he had created himself as “King” 
Of the islands, might seem Ruri- 
tanian. but some countries hed 
apparently recognised them. Mr. 
Barnes told the court that the 


islands, known as Colonia, lay 
between Manila and Saigon, and 
their nearest “border" was 200 
miles from the coast nf Labuan. 

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

Mr. Barnes went on: “In 1973 
Mr. Cloma asked me to join 
their Supreme Council, as he 
feared they might be annexed by 
President Marcos of the Philip- 
pines, and the next year 1 
became Head of State. 

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

“Colonia has adopted British 


Jaw for al! its legislation, and 
I studied lbe terms of Britain’s 
North Sea oil leases, as we were 
gojn? 10 offer five-square mile 
traits of ocean or islands under 
the rule of Colonia to various 
companies throughout the world. 

“Ve were negotiating with 
various American companies for 
survey work, as seismological 
studies suggest there is more oil 
under Colonia than in the whole 
uf the Persian Gulf.” 

Mr. Barnes, who holds a degree

Florida university said he had 
frequently travelled in the Far

The hearing was adjourned 
until Monday, when Mr. Barnes 
continues bis evidence in the

FRAUD AND BOGUS BANKS 


Drafts that leave 



AIR. NEILL SCOTT, tbe invest- 
ment director of the Piccadilly 
group of unit trusts, has resigned 
following an investigation into 
the trusts dealings by its 
directors and its auditors. 
Whinney Murray. 

Mr. Alan Judd, chairman of 
Piccadilly, asked for Mr. Scott’s 
resignation last Monday. Mr. 
Scon, 30. leaves the company 
with no compensation. 

Piccadilly was named in an 
unpublished Stock Exchange 
report into share dealings, which 
was sent to the Department ol 
Trade, City of London Police, 
the Unit Trust .Association and 
the Bank of Scotland, trustee to 
j Piccadilly. 

The Piccadilly directors and 
their advisors, Gresham Trust, 
have concluded that the trans- 
actions in which the Stock 
Exchange investigation was 
interested consisted of 12 pur- 
chases and nine sales. Virtually 
all of these deals were made by 
the trust between December 1976 
and June 1977. 

The 12 purchases involved a 
total of £187,500. All these 
securities have since been sold, 
except for shares with a book 
value of £14,452 and a current 
market value of £21.150. 

The nine sales totalled £121.000 
but this figure cannot be com- 
pared directly with the purchases 
as only some of the sales related 
to securities included in the pur- 
chase figure. 

These feelings are believed to 
be tbe ones mentioned specific- 
ally in the Stock Exchanges 
report 

Mr. Judd said that these deals 
in tbe shares of the nine com- 
panies mentioned in the 
Exchange's report were transac- 
tions where the prices could have 
been manipulated, but the trust 
as a whole made a profit 

In a statement yesterday, the 
directors said that these transac- 
tions did not have a material 
effect on the value of tbe units in 
any of the group's funds which, 
in total, amount to investments of 
more than £10m. 

The Bank of Scotland had a 
meeting with tbe Piccadilly man- 
agement and its advisors on 
Thursday. In a statement pub- 
lished last night, tbe Bank said 
that “as a result of its inquiries, 
the bank is satisfied that the cash 
and securities on the basis of 
which the current values of the 
various units are determined con- 
tinue to be under its control and 
custody." 

Picadilly has been unable to 
obtain a copy of the report. 

The Stock Exchange has indi- 
cated that it is prepared to re- 
lease the report to Piccadilly 
only on a conditional basis. It is 
believed that the report will be 
handed over only if Piccadilly's 
management agrees not to pur- 
sue any legal action against the 
Stock Exchange. 

Mr. Richard Luders, a Picca- 
dilly director, has taken over the 
responsiiblity for tbe manage- 
ment of tbe trust's funds in place 
of Mr. Scott.

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

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

The case is worth attention 
because experience has shown 
bow gullible the public can be 
when confronted with a company 
with, a high-sounding bank-type 
name and an impressive-seeming 
fraudsman operating from it 

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

Also, until a recent clamp- 
down. overseas-registered com- 
panies with financially-sounding 
nam es -were, able without too 
much difficulty to operate for a 
time in Britain, without being 
fully subject to the controls 
applying . to home-based 
concerns. 

Mentality 

“Fraudsmen don’t get off tiie 
ground unless they are of high 
mentality." one senior police 
officer remarked recently. And 
those who do the frauds in other 
countries have a lot going for 
Ihem.” . 

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

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

It was reported in the court 
tiffs week that Mr. Morley. a 
financial consultant, had earlier 
been 'convicted of obtaining 


cheques for a total of £ 101.000 
by falsely representing that he 
could obtain loans of £13ra. Iron 
Arabs. 

Industrial Banking Corpora- 
tion was registered in Anguillj. 
a small island in the \V<Vt 
Indies, but afterwards operated 
from an address io Hanuier 
Square. London. Its name w -is 
exactly the same as lhal of a sub- 
sidiary of Guinness Mahon, toe 
well-known City of London mer- 
chant bank, thouib there was /»" 
connection whatever between 
them. 

This coincidence, which may 
or muye not have been accidental, 
can hardly have hurt the busi- 
ness of the Anguiua-registere'.l 
concern. 

A major police investigation 
into the case was carried out b; 
Detective Chief Inspector Ro: 
Elsey eariv last year, before the 
accused were arrested in May. 
1977. 

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

One change nn which Mr. Mm*- 
Icy and Mr. Morelia were con- 
victed alleged conspiracy “to 
defraud such persons as might h? 
induced to supply diamonds and 
other precious and semi-precious 
stones on credit to the Industrial 
Banking Corporation and to i*< 
customers by false representa- 
tions that the said (1BC) was -j 
genuine and honest business . . ■ 
Thai it had sufficient funds to 
guarantee payment for tbe said 
diamonds . . , and that irrevocaM 
documentair credits drawn upon 
the said (IBCl would guaranti-e 
payment . . . and by divers other 
fraudulent means and devices. 

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

Prosecuting in the case. Mr. 
Richard Du Cann. QC. had 
described the Anguilla 'based 
Industrial Banking Corporation 
as “a sham — no more than a 
facade used by the accused io 
develop credence.” 

The court was told by ihe 
prosecuting counsel that the 
concern had attempted to engage 
in large deals, including offering 
to finance a $500m cement wnrfcs 
iti South Africa. It had also pi» 


rosed to buy quantities of 
diamonds, paying for them with 
letters of credit. It did obtain 
£50.000 worth of gems, but the 
-T-ller W 35 not paid. 

Mr. Morley was convicted on 
-is charges and sent tu prison 
for five years to tun eon- 
. urrentiy t and concurrently with 
fis existing five-year sentence). 

ith an additional two years on 
: nothcr charge. 

Mr. Morelia was convicted on 
• vo charges to which be had 
j-lvaded guilty and received a 
-entence to tun and a half years 
m jail. Jud&o Lewisohn stated 
: bat the sentence would have 
'■cen longer, had a sunt of £50.000 
involved in one of tbe charges 
t'ftt been repaid. 

Over »he past twn years nr sn. 
-enior officers of the Mertnpoli- 

■ ; n and City or London Police 
Fraud Squads and of Scotland 

ard's Serious Crimes Squad

' estimate certain small concerns, 

■ ■fieri based in offshore islands, 
purporting to carry on genuine 
hanking in Britain. 

Businesses looked into include 
r number or tiny companies, 
■iften with high-sounding names, 
registered in islands in the 
West Indies and elsewhere. Some 
'■'<* people were arrested anj a 
number of ihesc still await trial. 

The authorities in Anguilla 
?a«t .rear took a tougher line and 
r i ruck more than a hundred 
•Jien impressively titled small 
rontpanies off their register. 

Overseas-registered companies, 
even though tiny, which set up 
-u si ness under hank-type names 
in Britain may be wholly legiti- 
mate. Yet it was anomalous 
:ftat. until recently, they were 
;;ble to operate in the UK subject 
to looser supervision than home- 
registered hanks. 

However, late last yea r. the 
Trade Department look action 
under section 31 of the Com- 
panies Act. 2976. considerably to 
reduce the number of overseas- 
based concerns with financial 
titles able to conduct business in 
the UK as hitherto. 

More than 4£l offshore com- 
panies with hank-type names 
which had registered abroad and 
then set up in Britain received 
notices from the Department 
mat they could not operate in 
fhi? country under their existing 
titles. 

Section 31 empowers the 
Department to notify an over- 
company that it is undesir- 
: - r *le for it m trade in Britain 
under its existing corporate 
amne. 


Treasury defends 
lack of precision 


in spending plans 


BY PETER RIDDELL, ECONOMICS CORRESPONDENT 


THE Treasury yesterday stone- 
walled cririfisws from an all- 
party Commons committee about 
Government spending plans. 

The Treasury has defended its 
decision not to include in its 
annual spending White Paper a 
more precise assessment of the 
medium-term prospects. It also 
rejects criticisms, about the 
balance between current and 
capital expenditure. 

These points are made in tbe 
Treasury's reply to the March 

report from the Commons ex- 
penditure committee, whose 
general sub-committee held a 
series of public hearings with 
Treasury officials earlier in lbe 

year. 

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

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

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

The Treasury says that great 
uncertainty surrounds alt the 
main determinants of the future 
growth of output and tbe Govern- 
ment therefore seeks to keep its 
plans flexible, especially for the 
later years of the five-year survey 
period, and to review the figures 
annually. 


The present approach is to 
produce an economic assessment 
expressed mainly in qualitative 
terras. Tbe Treasury merely 
repeats the pledge given in oral 
evidence by Mr. Joel Barnett, 
tbe Chief Secretary, that the 
Government would consider 
before the next While Paper is 
published to what extent more 
quantified economic projections 
should be provided. 

Tbe committee also criticised 
tbe Government for failing io 
redress the damage caused to the 
construction industry by the 
cuts announced in 1976. 


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

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

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

The Treasury notes the long- 
term continuing tenderniy for 
shortfall to occur and points tn 
difficulties of prediction, notably 
in areas which cannot be closely 
controlled by the Government 
since they arc. influenced by 
genera! movements in the 
economy. 


Bonus claims by oil 
men rejected 


BY SUE CAMERON 


OIL COMPANIES, trade unions 
and North Sea building con- 
tractors have agreed to stand 
firm asaiost future claims by oil 
platform construction workers 
for end-of-con tract bonus pay- 
ments. 

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

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

The committee recommended 
that “ contractors, trades unions 
and clients should act jointly to 
ensure -that claims for termina- 
tion payments, in violation of 
existing agreements, should be 
rejected.*’ 

Such claims would reduce tbe 
number of orders and “ so affect 
adversely the continuity of 
employment on UK sites.” 

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


end-nf-conlract bonuses of up to 
£2.000. 

The strikes — nearly always un- 
official — have been staged just 
before compleuon of a platform 
scheduled for summer. 

Delay at this stage can mean 
that the floating o a platform has 
to be delayed for another year 
because of winter weather. 

Two years ago. workers at the 
Graytborp yard refused to com- 
plete a platform for Burmah Oil 
for the Thistle Field unless they 
were given termination bonuses. 

Eventually, Burmah agreed to 
foot the bill for the payments, 
rather than lose the platform for 
that year. The total cost to the 
company was said to be about 
£lm. 

There is already overcapacity 
in the siecl and concrete plat- 
form building industry in 
Europe. 

Orders for concrete platforms 
that would otherwise have come 
to the UK could go to Noway or 
Sweden, while steel piatform 
orders could go to Holland or 
France. 

Dr. Mabon said that, in the next 
18 months, it w-as expected that 
six or seven orders for North 
Sea platforms would come to the 
UK yards. 



Why all equities? 


Schlesingers* Extra Income Trust Is a trustee 
investment ■and offers one of the highest returns 
currently available from a unit trust invested only in 
ordinary shares. 

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

A current opportunity 

By careful selection of sound stocks including 
attractive recovery situations and well-researched 
regional equities, Schlesingers proride a particularly 
high equity-based yield. 

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

Indeed, many investors have recognised The 
urgency of securing this opportunity by placing over 
£9m in the fund since its inception in May 1977. 

Over this period, ihc uni! price has risen 25 “J and the 
FT Actuaries AU-sbarc Index 17*’ 0 . 

Wc therefore recommend immediate investment 
at the current, high rate of return to gain the potential 
of capital appreciation. Your investment should be. 
regarded as long-term. 

Schlesingers 7 PIMS service 

Minimum investment in the fund is £500. 
Investors of £2J0O or more will receive the Schlesinger 
Personal Investment Management Service (PIMS) 
which includes regular investment repons and • 
invitations to meet tbe investment managers.

Ordinary Dividend 


At 31st March. 1978. c-ur net assoi vaiue stood at f7.965.47S 
equivalent to 53.1 pence per share. This, represents an increase of 
7.0 per cent over last -, ear, and compares with a rise of 4.8 per cent 
in the Euros*, *ndicat inde * over the same period. 

In ihe course of :he year the holdings in France. Germany and 
the USA have been increased from 34 1 c .-u to 55 7° u . reflecting the 
improved investment potential of those countries. 

We are recommending a final dividend of 1.30 pence net per 
share. This is in line with our forecast and together with the interim 
of 0 30 pence paid in December 1977 makes a loi3l of 1.50 pence 
ior the year, an increase of 25 per cent. 

Since the end c-f rhe financial vear we have made application 
to ms Bank of England to takeout additional foreign currency loans 
under the new dispensation concerning investment in foreign 
currency bonds issued by E.E.C. agencies. The new regulations 
cnectrvetv enable us over a five year period to obtain a direct 
holding m foreign currencies wuhou; going through the dollar 
premium.

The Federal Reserve board is i. 
widely expected to raise its key f

Fed Funds rate — before the - 
end of the munlh in an attempt t 
to curb the growth in the money X

expected I97S inflation rate of ■- 
about 7 per cent. 1 

Will the market take an in- 
crease in the Fed funds rale , 
from ?! per cent to say i 4 per 
cent as' a further cheering sign 
that both the level of inflation 
and the level of economic 
activity will be lowered and the 
economy perhaps positioned 
better for a further advance in 
1980? Or will it fear that the 18- 
month outlook is sufficiently 
obscure to justify greater caution 
r in the equity front? Moreover 
l will the increase in interest 
i rates make other debt instru-

ing than equities?

AS PARENTS, you have an 
inalienable right to educate 
your children in the best 
possible manner and' to spend 
money to achieve this. You 
may laugh, but this principle 
was given some support under 
Section 375 of the Income and 
Corporation Taxes Act 1970. 
which exempts scholarships 
from tax, and Section 45 of the 
Finance Act 1975, which 
exempts normal expenditure on 
education from Capital Transfer 
Tax. 

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

FRINGE BENEFITS

earned savings according to the 
latest move front the Inland 
■Revenue. If relatives try to 
help out, (hey could be subject 
to CTT, and now jf your 
employer helps out, you cuuld 
face a tax liability on such 
payments. 

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



future by employers to assist in 
the education of children or 
employees would be subject to 
tax as benefits in kind under 
Section 61 of the Finance Act 
1976. The Budget of that year 
was effectively a declaration of 
war against the use or fringe 
benefits and that particular 
Section supplied the ammuni- 
tion to the Revenue. Anil many 
fringe benefit payments have 
come under attack. 

But up to now the Revenue 
has refrained from taking 
action on scholarships provided 
by employers, on the grounds 
that Section 375 mentioned 
above slopped them. The past 
two years has seen a prolifera- 
tion of educational trusts set up 
by employers. Many insurance 
brokers dealing in employee 
benefit provision have been 
instrumental in designing and 
administering such trusts. They 
claim to have taken Counsel's 
opinion before setting up such 
trusts. 

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

Opinion with the tax aecoun 


Revealing tke facts 


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

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

The association has 
over the past f ew year s

antes, though the recent 
by- the pension funds of 
nationalised boards have

But all efforts have been 
capped, by a relative lack

I 


the book does stimulate interest, 
then there is an article on how 
to buy investment trust shares. 

The second section lists the 
management groups in this 
sector together wilti the trusts 
in their staWes. One important 
criteria in selecting an invest- 
ment is to ascertain 'the quality 
of the management.. This sec- 
tion will help in m aki n g that 
assessment. 

The third section is Ae oi 
that wtU interest .the 7 advis 
as well ‘ as the individual in 
vest or. for it contains details of 
each trust together with com- 
prehensive statistics on invest- 
ment portfolios, history of share 
prices, asset values and divi- 
dend distributions. If the book 
had contained nothing else, it 
would still have filled a huge 
gap in the information available 
on the industry. 

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

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

cent, to those investors' who 
bought at the outset m .June 
, 1975. But investors need to con- 
sider the expected remits in 
the future and here there is a 
• case for switching. The National 
Savings Bank is paying 8.5 per 
cent on deposit accounts. A 
-onejfear investment in. local 
authorities yields about.9,5.per 
rent, while more adventurous 
investors could consider the pos- 
sibilities of high-income trusts 
mentioned elsewhere on this 

P8 & e one reads the forecasts, 
the impression given is that the 
inflation rate could be -rising 
again next year, so investors 
thinking of switching, need to 
watch the economic scene quite 
Closely. . You need an . invest-

realised, and in this respect umt 

trusts need careful timing. But 

iris an opportunity to increase 
the return on your investments. 


(am is that almost certainly this: 
decision will be tested in the 
Courts. But even -so. does this 
action of the Revenue herald 
the u I f i male dem ise of such 
assistance by employers'* This 
is by no means certain: the 
ingenuity of the tax planners 
can usually find a way round 
moves of this kind. 

The taxation of benefits in 
kind is complex, like most tax 
legislation, but the Revenue 
divides the population in two 
groups — directors and higher- 
paid and others. The higher- 
paid. by Revenue definition, arc 
those earning £7.500 or more a 
year and this Hmit is revised 
periodically. The former class 
have fringe benefits faxed on the 
cost to the employer, others are 
taxed on its resalable value. 
Thus this move by the Revenue 
means that the higher-paid will 
pay tax un the amount of the 
scholarship- award, whereas the 
lower paid will not he. affected, 
since it lias no value on the 
market. 

It must be remembered that 
the £7,500 limit includes the 
value of all fringe benefits 
besides your earnings. Since 
fees are nudging £2,000 a year, 
the award of a .scholarship 
c-nuld put you into the category 
of higher-paid. Where both 
husband and wife can apply for 
a scholarship with their 
respective employers, it may 
well be profitable for the wife 
to apply if she is earning less, 
and opt for separate assessment. 
But this Revenue decision could 
be challenged in the Courts so 
this may not be the final word 
on the subject. 


Public stay away 


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

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


OPTION MARKET 

TERRY OGG 


the private client money conics 
from either private client port- 
folios over which brokers 
exercise some discretionary con- 
trol or as a result of trans- 
actions executed on a brokers’ 
re com men da tion . 

Market makers are still the 
leading writers of options 
although (here has been some 
tentative interest shown by 
private clients. Institutions and 
merchant banks have been 
conspicuous by their absence. 
The individual investors writing 
options tend to have medium- 
sized portfolios with a market 
value in excess of £75.000 and 
a holding in three to five of the 
underlying stocks. 


In genera] the private 

investors v.riic between three 
and seven upturn-; in one or two 
of the underlying stocks they 
hold and rarely commit more 
than 70 per cent of their 
bolding. 

Inst irut inns have shown 

interest in buying options 

although private client buying 
and in-house buying by brokers 
dominates. There has been 
little iiueresr in secondary 
market buying and selling 

The main Mumbling blocks 
are the la:: problem; a difficulty 
getting hank guarantees by 
writer* w!tn wish to be 
“ uncovered " but who don’t 
wish lu put up the required 
cash coHatrra!. and a lack of 
liquidity. 

The lack nf liquidity is the 
greaie.vi problem. Last Thursday 
a buying urder for 60 Shell July- 
550 wa; placed. By midday only 
20 had been bought. When the 
market first opened it took 
three day.- i 0 clear a buying 
order ror 40 contracts. 

The initiators »f the London 
options market arc happy with 
their fledgling. They will 
continue lu seek tu have the 
tax pusiiiun altered and they 
will encourage the cl carers tn 
issue guarantees. Bui they still 
have io boost liquidity. It tv ill 
need an education programme 
or a reasonably sustained 
upwards movement in the 
underlying sharemarket. There 
is no spur like speculative 
profits ti> bring new people into 
a new market. 


HIGH INCOME funds are often 
i-onsideyod the bread and butter 
of the unit trust industry. . • 

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

What, though, are the specific 
advantages of a high income 
fund? First, your investment 
will give you a regular return 
which, depending on the fund 
manager's skill anil ibe stale 
of the stock market, should 
increase with time. Dividends 
from must high income funds 
have risen in the last year in 
terms of income per unit — 
Arbuthnot's Extra Income and 
Preference funds are notable 
exceptions but. according to the 
group, rapid expansion at the 
end of last year made it difficult 
to get the cash into the market. 

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


Enticing 

income 

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

UNIT TRUSTS 

TIMOTHY CMCKSON 


done better than “blue chips” in 
the prevailing economic climate. 
Many high income funds are 

geared up with a certain steady 
percentage of preference shares. 
It is well to find out exactly 
what that proportion is. Prefer- 
ence shares tend to have a yield 


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

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

If you already hold units, in- 
cidentally, there is one reason 
why you might consider selling 
this year. Since April 1. 1977 
/retrospectively from April this 
year) unit trusts have been pay- 
ing a concessionary capital gains 
lax rate of ll) per cent. Bui up 
to March 31. 1979. unir holders 
wilt get a tax credit for the old 
rate of 17 per rent which ran 
now be used if your gains do 
not exceed £5.000.

Estimated Gross Starting Yield A 



H ere is a new unit trust from Gartmore with 
an estimated gross commencing yield of 
9J 0 o- This compares favourably with 
many other forms of pure equity investment. 

Gartmore propose to achieve this by careful])’ 
choosing a portfolio of ordinary shares in small, 
sound UK companies with above-average 
yields. W ith professional day-to-day 
management, this strategy gives investors a 
high level of income together with good 
prospects of long-term capital gn nvth. 

Because such shares cannot be bought ill 
unlimited numbers, Gartmore will be 
restricting the number of units under this 
particular pffer to io million. 

A team with an 
outstanding record 

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

of a wide spread 

Gartmore Extra Income Trust will be invested in 
about i oo different securities so that your money is

the income from them can go down as well as up. 
You should regard your investment us long-term .

industries and some fixed-interest investments.

HOW MUCH extra doe? the fact 
that someone wiih a known 
name has lived in the house put 
on the price? Quite a bit. I sus- 
pect, looking throuch ihv cur- 
rent crop of " association 
houses." And. of course, the 
attraction of heing able to drop 
the names of .such distinguished 
persona as the Poet Laureate, 
the Leader uf the* Opposition, 
and even a television medico 
obviously adds enormously to 
the cclut of a place. 

Literary associations have a 
strong pull, whether they go 
with an actual property, nr iu.-t 
the place. Prospect ive buyers 
desirous of living somewhere 
that inspired putnis or hooks, 
would do well to invest in The 
Oriorrt l.iterarif Guide iv the

and his wife lived in 1916-1917. 

Or there is A Literary Arte* 
and Gazetteer of the British 
Isles by Michael Hardwicke 
(David and Charles. 1973). 
which contains 4.500 entries in- 
cluding one on Rudyard Kipii n S 
(1S65-1936). poet and novelist, 
who lived between 1896-97 at 
Maidencombe, an unspoilt vil- 
lage three miles from Torquay 
in Devon. He wrote some of his 
best stories here, included in 
The Dag's Work, 189S. The 
locals will tell you that he found 
Rock House, where he lived, 
rather dismal and depressing. 
The story goes that Kipling 
'truck up a friendship with the 
little grand-daughter of the 
owner of nearby Langley* 
Lodge, now called Langley 
Manor, and was given the free- 
dom of the two-acre gardens.

into such mountains as the 
Balkan range or the Rhodopes, 
or such depressions that 
separate them as the Thracian 
Plain and the Valley of the 
Roses. The latter is at its most 
magnificent in May, though at 
other times flourishes with

Kazanluk there is a Museum of

oasis of calm beneath the traffic

crouching in the courtyard of

Sophia Church itself is a 
restored and gradiose shell from 
the tith century, Alexander 
Nevsky Memorial Church a 
glittering representative of the 

early 20 th. 

It’s also a city of light traffic, 
green spaces, good concerts and 
opera, and quite a lively 
restaurant-and-cafg life. And, 
as for most places in Bulgaria, 
the mountains are on the door-

AS I STRODE across a seaside 
golf course the other day watch- 
ing some of Britain’s top pro- 
fessionals playing with 
amateurs, I suddenly noticed 
that I was walking on a close 
carpet of roses. It was, of 
course, the Scotch Rose, a lovely 
species which never seems to 
behave in gardens as it does 
when it grows wild on the dunes. 
I thought what an extraordinary 
family this is, with variety that 
can scarcely be equalled, let 
alone surpased, by any other. 

In a few weeks roses will be 
spilling from the tops of some 
of my tallest larches, trees that 
have been growing steadily 
since well before the war and 
must now be fully 60 feet high. 
They are musk roses, or what 
pass for such in gardens for I 
leave the mysteries of rose 
naming to experts like Graham 
Thomas, one of whose books, 
Climbing Roses Old and New, is 
just about to be reissued by 
Dents in a revised edition cost- 
ing £8.95. I am delighted to 
have it, for climbing roses lend 
to be neglected by both writers 
and breeders, the former, I 
imagine, because of the difficul- 
ties in unravelling the ancestry 
of many of these roses and the 
latter because, so they assure 
me, there is little money to be 
made from climbers. I do not 
think that this indicates any 
lack of appreciation by garden 
owners but rather that climbing 
roses, even the smaller ones. 


take up so much room that it is 
only necessary to buy a few. 
Yer those few can make all the 
difference to the beauty of a 
garden in summer and they 
should be chosen with the 
greatest care. 

I share Graham Thomas’s 
preference for growing climbing 
roses as nearly naturally as 
possible which is why I send my 
tdusk roses scrambling into tall 
trees where I can admire them 
without ever being called upon 
to do anything about them since 
they are too high up to be 
pruned, let alone sprayed. The 
odd thing is that they never 
see m to need either when grown 


f this way. 
That mar 


j That marvellous rose Kifts- 
£ate belongs to this same group 
of musk roses. Where it does 
iwell it is breathtakingly beauti- 
'ful, with huge trusses of creamy 
white flowers but with me it has 
not grown so well as the anony- 
mous *' moschata " which was 
given to me years ago by that 
remarkable amateur rose 
grower Mr. A. Norman who 
raised Ena Harkness, Frensham 
and several other very good 
roses. I think that Kiftsgate 
needs better soil than I am able 
to give it. I must try it agaiu 
in another place and with much 
better soil preparation than it 
got last time. You do not expect 
a monster like this to be faddy 
but Mr. Thomas confirms my 
suspicion that this is just what 
it is. 

Kiftsgate gets its name from 
Kiftsgate Court, a lovely garden 
in the CoLswolds, just below 
Hidcote Manor and with even 
better views across the Vale of 
Evesham to the Malvern Hills. 
Tbe garden was made by the 
late Mrs. J. B. Muir and she pur- 




chased the rose, presumably as 
Rosa filipes, of which it is cer- 
tainly a variety, from the 
Bunyard nursery, then at Maid- 
stone. It was years before any- 
one took much notice of it but 
then its fame spread, Mrs. Muir 
allowed it to be propagated and 
widely distributed .and. as Mr. 
Thomas explains. It was called 
Kiftsgate to distinguish it from 
other, possibly inferior, forms of 
R. filipes. 

This is not the only dis- 
tinguished climbing rose to be 
saved from obscurity- by Mrs. 


GARDENING 


ARTHUR HEULYER 


Muir. Also from Bunyard she 
purchase a form of Rosa 
bnmonii which Mr. E. A. Bun- 
yard had found in the Hanbury 
garden at La Mortola just on 
the Italian, side of the Freneh- 
Italian frontier near , Menton. 
According to Graham Thomas 
this is unquestionably tbe most 
ornamental form of the species, 
outstanding in foliage, flower 
end fragrance, and he should 
know because ti was be who 
saw it at Kiftsgate, and per- 
suaded Mrs. Muir to let him 
introduce it to. general cultiva- 
tion under the name fiosa 
brunonii La-Mortola. 

Among the -first roses to 
flower are the Banksians, par- 
ticularly . the Double Yellow 
Banksian which is the easiest 
to purchase and to. grow. It 
hasL a reputation for tenderness 
but it will stand quite a lot of 
cold if. its growth has been 



m j 


well ripened in late summer. 
It grows and flowers well in 
■tiie Channel Islands and is .an 
ideal rose for sunny, sheltered 
patios, except that its flowering 
season is rather short. Still its 
foliage is light and decorative 
and its stems are almost thorn- 
less which must be regarded 
as a considerable advantage 
where space is limited. Mr. 
Thomas makes the point, new 
to me, that the flowers are pro- 
duced in greatest quality and 
quantity on the two- to three- 
year-old side shoots. He sug- 
gests removing a percentage of 
the • five-year -old stems each 
year, a very different method 
from the annual backing out of 
as much old growth as possible 
which is the usual treatment 
for climbing roses. 

The most beautiful climbing 
roses I saw last year were ail 
specimens of the olimbing form 
of Cecite Brunner. I do not 
know whether .the season suited 
this moiety specially well but 
all were absolutely smothered 
with the tittie pink noses, per- 
fectly formed and sweetly 
scented yet only a quarter the 
size of even- a smaJJ hybrid tea. 
As a c&M'I - used to pick 
bunches of Cecile Brunner fix- 
my grandmother but 1 they were 
from the- bush form which is 
still a delightful- little rose - to 
ffrow, better, I think, than any 
of the modern miniatures. 

In general I do not 'think that 
climbing roses flower as long 
as Che best bush roses. Perh.ips 
they spend itoo much time grow- 
ing and ' have insufficient 
strength left to go ou flowering 
for a tong time. There cer- 
tainly does seem to be some 
correlation between the -amount 
of growth a rose makes and the 


conrimx^y of its flowering. For 
the giai^s, like, 3Q£tsgate aad 
La Mortola, it is one tremen- 
dous display -and then no mote 
that season. Yet relatively short 
roses such as Joseph’s Coat and 
Aloha, both of which can just 
as converuent9y be grown - as 
shrubs, go on flowering well 
into the autumn, Aloha is 
rapidly becoming one of. my 
favouri tes, a 'rose that has been 
around for\ she best part ' of 
30 years without .ever making 
much of -a stir.. It bas.-shapesy 
flowers which Mr. Thomas calls 
“ dear rose panic,” though that 
seems to amiss some of . the 
subtlety of -the shade . which' as 
a muted pink -in (he - manner of 
old rose or crushed strawberry. 

It is strange how good roses 
can be overlooked even by their 
raisers. Mr. Thomas tells .the 
story of . Lawrence Johnston 
raised by M. PernetrOucher In 
1923. From tire same pod of

I SPENT most of May in China 
and, in the moments of wake- 
fulness induced by the barrage 
of loudspeakers and motor horns 
with which the Chinese salute 
the dawn, I thought with in- 
creasing nostalgia of the cool 
green hills of Argyll and the 
river where for the last dozen 
years I have fished for salmon 
and sea trout with indifferent 
success. 

Or, to be more exact, for the 
last five years catches in June 
have declined almost to zero- 
Last year we caught the only 
fish landed in that month. This 
has had nothing to do with a 
falling off of our basic skills 
but partly to a shortage of water 
in the river and moire 
importantly of fish in the spring 
run and this has been common 
to all rivers. So marked has 
this transfer of fish to autumn 
runs become that the experts 


bad written off with the most 
reasoned arguments any pros- 
pect of a return of spring fish- 
ing. 

As usual the experts have 
been proved wrong because this 
year there has been an enor- 
mous number of fish in many 
Scottish rivers and I hoped, on 
my way through to the High- 
lands, X would find the same 
state here. But the auguries en 
route were not good. 

Except where there was still 
snow on the tops the streams 
and rivers were dry. just the 
bare bones of water-polished 
rocks in place of the usual 
torrent at this time of the year. 
I wasn't very worried. This river 
is fed by a 20-mile-long locb and 
I have never seetr it without 
some water. 

Within a few miles of my 
destination I passed a well 
known river dry as a bone and 
saw two fishermen wading in 
the sea at its mouth and cast- 
ing in the hopes of catching 
one of the fish waiting to enter 
the stream as soon as there 
was a chance. 1 have never 
been driven lo this because 
the chances of catching any- 


thing "are .slight and you can 
if .you wish go spinning off 
Brighton Pier with -almost as 
must hope of success as they 
had.

anglers who have booked their 
holiday months before only to

arrival but I found that I was 
not a much better case myself. 
The river is almost dry. there 
has been little rain for nine 
weeks and it. is even lower 
than it was last year. But 
there is a difference. The half 
dozen deep pools hold a great 
many fish. They can be seen 
rising continually and in the 
estuary the waiting shoals are 
said to be packed like sardines. 
The problem of course is to 
catch them. 

The pools are deep, dark and 
without movement, and the 
obvious .tactic would be ito use 


worms, bat this is against the 
rules and we fishermen... keep 
the rules. So we are reduced 
to fishing tiie aurfiace when 
there is enough wind to make

'PICNICS can be hell. Too much sand, too many flies, 
; nmdL rain, loosv food, biting winds and too many other 
people— these are just some of the hazards with which 
?k» ic& «mi be beset. On the other band when a picnic is 
perfect, I can hardly think of a nicer happening in the 
whole social calendar. We had one such perfect evening 
*®cenfly at Glyndebourne when a combination of 
exquisite weather, delicious food, marvellous music and 
. Md friends contrived to add up to one of those- golden 
• days yon remember for a long time to come. 

Looking at all the picnickers and the elegance with wh 
ibjby had spread their rugs, laid out their tablecloths 
and even set up their tables made n,a mils* iiist how

* days you remember for a long time to come. 

Looking at all the picnickers and the elegance with which 
.they had spread their rugs, laid out their tablecloths 
.and even set up their tables made me realise Just how 
well the British can do things when they really put 
ikelr minds to it Though it seemed to me that ours was 
finite the most perfect of all the plenies X could glimpse 
(Pimms to start with, then cold watercress soup served 
in French white bowls, salmon trout with sauce verte and 
s a l ads, strawberries and great bowls of cream) there 
was none the less no group visible that hadn't gone to a 
great deal of trouble over food and drink. All a far cry from 
plastic sandwiches and salads stained with beetroot. 

The equipment they all owned, too, was such that lead 
me to believe that picnicking must surely be a larger part 
of the British way of life than I had ever imagined. 

Nobody could surely buy all that just for one 
or two outings a year ? 

- The real essentials for a successful picnie seem to be 
a good collection of eooHe hags — into these you can fit 
white wine, champagne if you're lucky, bags of ice and 
Fteezella bags, and the combined package should arrive well 
.chilled on even the hottest of days. Our friends had 
bought a large and simple picnic basket frum Habitat and 
. this held all the glass, china and cutlery for our party of eight. 

The ether essential is either lots of small or one large 
. vacuum-flask for providing hot coffee or. on colder days, 
hot soups. Once you're organised for transporting these 
essentials you can then decide which of the extras 
are important to you. I have an aversion to plastic plates 
and mugs myself and feel that the touch of glass and 
china adds a great deal to the event; however, if there is 
much carrying to be done or far to 
; walk then plastic is certainly mucb lighter. 

VTbough elegant pienics, like those at Glyndebourne, Ascot 
and the like, are not the stuff of everyday life. 1 think 
it’s worth taking trouble to do them well — the pleasure of 
.the event extends way beyond the hours of its duration, 
and lingers in the memory for years. 

' For this week I've gathered together just some of the props 
that will come to your aid if yon, too, want to plan 
ah event of this kind. Nobody will want all of them, hut 
• a- few of them wilt certainly go some way to providing 
the. right backdrop to a M plush picnic."

ROBERT JACKSON of Picca- 
dilly is having a special picnie 
and barbecue fortnight in July, 
from 3-15. If you can wait that 
lung it is well worth going along 
for then you can see a large 
amount uf merchandise and 
ideas all laid nut together. In 
ihc meantime they have pro- 
duced a sheet "f ideas which 
renders can send off for — charm- 
ing line drawings illustrate 
things like barbecues and 


barbecue touts, hampers. 


vacuum flasks and other picnic 
paraphernalia. For a free copy 
send a s.a.e. to Shirley Graham 
Ellis. 12 Dagmar Terrace, Lon- 
don Nl. Among the small ideas 
recommended by Jacksons is 
using small tubes of Benedicta s 
mayonnaise— a very good idea 
as they arc so easy to pack and, 
of course, quite unbreakable. A 
6’. oz tube is 39p and for the 
moment they are banding out a 
free picnic knife and fork in 
stnokey brown plastic with oath 
tube. 




Pick your own 


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

However, some of the prob- 
lems have always been knowing 
exactly which farms allow you 
to pick your own, when which 
crops are at their best and at 
what umc the picking i> 
allowed. Home ami Frec/er 
Digest {which is incidentally 
an excellent magazine for 
freezer owners) has provided 
a marvellous service in us 


laiest edition {the July issue) 
hy listing farms all over the 
v-mmtry where you can “ pick 
vfiir own." 

They are listed by county 
u uh full addresses given and, 
wherever possible, telephone 
numbers so that you can check 
ilu- state of the crop you've got 
yuur eye on. 

Symbols have been used to 
indicate whether the farm grows 
bt-rries, fruits from trees like 
apples, plums or pears, leaf 
vegetables or rout vegetables. 

The pullout in this month s 
Hume and Freezer Digest runs 
tn 16 pages but already it 
seems such a success and such 
a nood idea that a book is being 
planned. Besides the pullout

ANOTHER OF those ideas so 
.rood that one wonders why 
nobody ever thought of it before 
— a service to help working 
mothers share a nanny. When 
my children were young enough 
to need constant care nannies 
of the good, old-fashioned sort 
were quite astonishingly badly- 
paid. I still blush when I 
recall the salaries. Nowadays, 
however, a* anybody whu ha ; 
recenllv tried m hire one will 
know, they ..-nine very expen- 
sive — they need a private life 
like everybody else, they need 
to eat and be clothed and haw 
the odd outing, too. 

However, money h nm the 
only disadvantage; lack t-f 


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

At the moment the service h 
.inly offered in the London area. 
Anybody whn thinks that shar- 
ing a nanny could bo what they 
ifi’d should contact the Share- 
r- N anny department of The 
Nanny Service. Oldbury Place,

London— but otherwise will post 
it for 55p extra. 


HERE is a splendid gadget 
fr«»m that old friend of FT 
readers— Peter Knight of Bea- 
cnnsfield and Esher. It is a 
proper coffee maker that makes 
fresh, hot coffee and can he 
used hy just plugging the con- 
nection into a 12-volt cigar 
lighter— this means it can be 
used in a car, boat or caravan. It 
takes about 10 to 15 minutes for 
the coffee to be made and 
though it doesn't make a great 
deal at a time 1500 centilitres, 
enough for two largish cops) its 
great advantage it that it is real. 
The ground coffee should be put 
into a little strainer at the top 
of the flask, the water goes into 
the main body and the coffee is 
made by the percolating 
method. £5.95 (P+P 75PL 


Make it 
yourself 

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

The dress would lake the 
average cruchcl-wurker about 
10 hours to make, the sun-lop 
would take about four hours. 
Hayiield Beaulon Crepe 4-ply 
yarn is the one for which the 
pattern has been designed and 
the yam comes in a good range 
of lovely, sunshiney, summer 
colours. A 25-gram ball costs 
25p and this means the dress 
would cost about £5.25 in the 
smallest size <32 ins) or £6.00 
in the largest size (38 ins i. The 
sun top. similarly, would be 
either £2-00 or £2.50.

Distress signals I Matisse 


Caliban, a radio critic manque, 
came to mind as I listened to 
some recent experiments in the 
Held of radio drama. “The isle is

Will hum about mine ears; and 
sometimes voices. That if I then

Mvself. i did in fact stuy awake 
through “the first play without 
words to be written for radio," 
The Rertrnfle by Andrew Sachs 
(Radio 3. June It. and through 
S.Q.S- bf Barry Bermange, “a 
development of his earlier work

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


ANTHONY CURTIS 


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

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

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


Wreck is burning . . . Help us . . " 
Tn a sequence like that we have 
the basics of drama without the 
superstructure. How many full- 
length plays can you think of 
that are summed up in the 
following? " Excuse unable to 
comply . . . Cannot stop, no time 
. . . Excuse pressing commitments 
of our own . . . Save us . . . We 
are dying. Cases of fever, 
dysentry. cholera, small-pox . . . 
When will you? • . - When the 
moon rises ... Do you require 
assistance? . . - State require- 
ments clearly . . . Act as judg- 
ment directs . . . Depend on own 
resources . . Mr. Bermange 
himself directed the: U voices, 
male and female, used contra- 
puntaiiy. in the programme, and 
David Greenwood was in charge 
of the special sound work. 

Many creative writers are all 
at sea when it comes to stringing 
ideas together and the distress 
signals they emit in radio inter- 
views are often painfully wishy- 
washy if not downright in- 
coherent. Not so the novelist 
Laurens van der Post, who was 
talking to Derek Parker for 
ha!f-an-hour in An Individual 
Self (Radio 4. June 13). He spoke 
with eloquent conviction of his ; 
faith in individual man even' 
against tbe unreined might of 
collective man in Africa today 
and of how tbe faith was a 
source of strength in a Japanese 
prisoner of war camp where he 
lived for a number of years 
under the ever-present threat of 
death, where he and his com-' 
panions h3d to depend wholly 
on own resources. It was a 
heartening signal of radio's 
maturity to give this interview- 
prime time on Radio 4.

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

His great period came compara- 
tively early in his long career, the 
dozen or so years before 191S: 
but such art-historical considera- 
tions in no way disqualify or 
demean bis later work: if influ- 
ence and importance were the 
only criteria, our galleries would 
be markedly sborter on master- 
pieces. 

This small loan exhibition at 
Marlborough (June-July) indeed 
covers only the later period, the 
earliest pictures dating from 
1917. the last from 194S. Those 
small early works already mark 
the shift away from the tough, 
ambitious paintings of the war 
years towards Ibe bourgeois 
idylls of the twenties, and a

and perhaps these will be better. 

At 9.35 I shall be unable to 
resist the excitement of Cornett's 
challenge far .'the world light 
heavyweight title on BBC I 
despite rational objections to 
boxing. 

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


addicted alcoholic atheist prince 
suffering fro m V D should in- 
stead -watch ITFs South Bank 
Show. Since the story is told as 
a ballet, “ Mayerling," it's all 
quite OK ...

A aroup of Chinese orerlay glass snuff bottles. 

Sale, June 19. 

ISth century China saw the popularisation of taking snuff 
as a sorial convention. The Chinese, unable to pinch snuff 
with Ion” fingernails, carried it in small bottles with a 
uoon attached to the stopper, developed from medRjne 
bottles Chinese snuff bottles share with jade carving ihe 
pi easin’' r-ombination of visual and tactile quality. Snuff 
bottles were carved from a wide variety of materials 
including hardstones. glass and organic substances, and 
the collector may display many interesting examples of tins 
miniature art form within a single cabinet. As objects 
which were in continual use, they become for the imagin- 
ative collector a link wish the manners of mid to late 
Ch'ang society. 

The Harry Ross Collection, which will be sold at Cbnsties's 
on Monday. June 1 9tb. contains many fine and several 
outstanding snuff bottles: examples of the latter being a 
rare lavender jade oviform bottle, an emerald green jade 
rectangular bottle and a Peking enamel disc-shaped bottle 
decorated with European figures. 

For information and advice on this sale, please contact 
Peter Bnfton or Derek GiUman at the address above.

Exchange rates 



Frnni Mr. Maluolm Samuel 

Sir. — Your weekly " Economic 
Yu. \. point * is u.,uaji> the alarm 
clock lhai opens my eyes on 
imirsday mointngs. The latest 
article, June 15. is no exception. 
1 would like to make some com- 
iiK-ms nn exchange rale changes. 

The tendency for the ratio of 
value added to materials and 
fuel costs in manufacturing to 
Ity constant over time is familiar 
to students of Censuses of Pro- 
duction. The tendency For wages 
and salaries to represent a con- 
sent proportion of value added 
is also well-established. Such 
tendencies would appear to form 
pari of the " laws of production ” 
in capitalist societies. Although 
more, d mi cult U> demonstrate, it 
seems that these " laws ” would 
“normally" yield constant 
profit margins and constant 
. returns on capital in niarntfac- 
tunus industry. The habits of 
our parliamentary representa- 
tives. however, have produced 
mutations in the system — devia- 
tions from "normality" in 
recent years being reflected, 
inter alia, in wide differences 
between “current” and “his- 
toric” costs or in tbe deprecia- 
tion of Merlins in nominal terms. 

The suggestion that like pro- 
■ducts are sold/ purchased at a 
common price level in inter- 
national markets is a refreshing 
reminder that purchasers tend 
to behave rationally. As such, 
it is hardly surprising that 
i nominal changes in exchange 
rule-*! and in the price of manu- 
factured goods have rouchly off- 
set each other. 

With a currency depreciating 
in nominal terms, the cash cost 
nf materials and fuel Inputs 
tends to rise in relation to value 
‘added in manufacturing indus- 
try. Balance sheet values 
fraainlv stocks) are inflated and 
■•cash" profits fall. In terms 
of total “ cash " costs incurred by 
manufacturers, the labour cost 
element i* likely to fall. Are we 
'•uiiltv. therefore, of partial 
flunking when we isolate the 
labour cost ■omponent in seeking 
10 show ad vantages from cur- 
rency depreciation, or vice 
versa ? 

' Profitability in trading activi- 
ties mav very well be restored 
tu previous levels as u result or 


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

Working father 

From jilr. M. C. P. Hewitt 

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

I have every sympathy with 
Mrs. Itiiey. or nearly every, 
because L still do my own house- 
work and gardening. If abc finds 
a solution 1 would be grateful 
fur information so that 1 cao try 
and reduce the burden on me of

after my children, a school.

Over 5U per u.-nt uf tyres 
imported from ciast Germany

national average runs at around

retail at approximately half the 

price of radial tyres and are nu

If Comecon tyres have any

Tyre imports 


From Mr. M. Morris 

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

Imports are currently running 
at a total of 3m units on esti- 
mated sales of 21.5m units or. 
14 per cent, not 33-34 per .cent 
as stated. Of these, 700.000 come 
from Comecon countries, which

of the FT combined with the

As she is spoke 

From Mr. Colin Witlsher. 

Sir. — l fear that Mr. J. L.

correctly identified himself us a 
" linguistic paraplegic." 

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

The von Hirsch sale on Tuesday: By Antony Thorncroft 




oilectors 




MR, PETER WTLSON, chairman 
bf.Sotheby Parke Bernet, will 
take up his gavel at 9.30 am 
on Tuesday to start the most im- 
poriant auction in his long 
career and maybe In the 200 
years’ history of the firm. 
During the following week 750 
works of art collected by the late 
Robert, von Hirsch will be sold 
for at least f8m. The grand 
total could well exceed £i0m. 

In cash terms the sale will 
certainly set a record, although 
in real terms the dispersal of 
the contents of Hamilton Palace 
-in the p re-inflationary late Vic- 
torian days will remain un- 
rivalled. It makes the auction 
at Mentmore Towers, Lord Rose- 
bery's Buckinghamshire home, 
which Sotheby's organised last 
summer, look almost small. 

' There are striking contrasts 
between the two auctions. 

. Whereas the Mentmore Towers 
sale was held iu a very English 
setting, in a large marquee in 
the grounds of a vast mansion, 
and represented the remnants 
of" a collection built up over 
many generations by two rich 
: families— the Rothschilds and 
the Roseberys — the von Hirsch 
collection will be dispersed in 
Bond Street and represents the 
" buying of one man, a German 
who fled from Nazi Germany to 
. settle in Switzerland. The 
works on sale vary tre- 
. mendously. too. Mentmore 
reflected Victorian taste in its 
large items of ISth century 
furniture, its tapestries, its 
• strongly French Savour, while 
.Voh Hirsch specialised in inti- 
mate items that could be 
- . displayed in a relatively small 
■ house, with a concentration on 
medieval works of art. Old

do well. 

The undoubted winner at the 
sales will be Sotheby's. It can- 
not expect us usual 10 per cent, 
commission from the seller on 
an enterprise of this size, but it 
will have negotiated a fee for 
its work In handling, insuring, 
and exhibiting Lhe collection, 
and printing 40.000 catalogues 
which at £40 a set are costly, 
but should become even more 
valuable. It will also get a 10 
per cent premium on the knock- 
down price from the buyers. 

Eut there is more than 
revenue involved in a sale of 
Lhis kind. The prestige is 
enormous, and Sotheby’s pre- 
eminent position will be con- 
firmed. In addition, just as 
Mentmore established a new 
level of higher prices for 18th- 
century furniture, the prices at 
the von Hirsch auction will give 
market guidelines not only for 
the rare collections of medieva 1 



works of art that might he 
tempted into the open, hut also 
create more confidence in im- 
pressionist paintings, which 
have been in the doldrums in 
recent > cars but recently shown 
signs of life- 

The timing of the von Hirsch 
disper.<:i! is good. The art mar- 
ket follows the state of the 


economies of the major western 
nations and Japan, where the 
mood is mure optimistic than in 
the immediate past. In this sale 
there is little of the British 
national heritage involved: it is 
a tribute to the past collecting 
habits of lhe British aristocracy 
which made London the hub of 
the very international art world.

METROPOLITAN RACEGOERS 
ha»e another intriguing after- 
nuons spurt in prospect today, 
for the Trafalgar House Group— 
the only British-based company 
to sponsor an entire programme 
— has contributed to all six races 
at Sandown. 

Here, as might be expected, 
the feature event is the li-mile 
Trafalgar House Handicap which 
carries £5,000 in added prize 
moDey. 

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

to see her justify considerable 
hopes with a clear-cut win over 
another lightly-raccd sort. 
Effulgence, whose irainer. Ryan 
Price, took this prize two seasons 
ago through Marquis de Sade. 

Turning tu York, where it is 
the Tiraeform Charity Day for 
cancer riief. Ajuda Palace 
strikes me as a sound bet to 
lift the Vernons Fillies' Plate. 

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

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

Later in the afternoon, it could 
well be a case of John Dunlop 
again. Overtrick seems leniently 
treated with 7 st 11 lb in the 
William Hill Trophy, in which 
Lester Piggott’s mount Negative

for last year's 15-length winner. 
North Stoke, could again hold the 
key. for he saddles Falls of Lora, 

Strong grounds exist for think- 
ing that this home-bred daughter 
of Dunlop's Eclipse winner, Scot- 
tish Rifle, may easily be the one 
they all have to beat. She is on 
the upgrade and carries just 
7 st 10 lb. 

A fast-finishing second behind 
the lj-length winner. Temple 
Wood, in a highly competitive 
handicap at Salisbury a few days 
ago. where several useful per- 
formers were comfortably 
beaten off. Fails of Lora had not 
previously been seen in public 
since running disappointingly on 
her final two-year-old appearance. 

Falls of Lora is now fast im- 
proving and is sure to take a 
good deni of beating, i hope 


Investment of 
DM 1.5bn 
by Siemens 


SIEMENS AG plans investments 
totalling DM 1.5bn in this 
financial year ending September 
against DM 1.2bn in 1976-77. The 
company will take up before the 
end of the year an option on 
another 30 per cent of the capital 
of Siemens Allis Inc. of the U.S., 
following which the capital will 
be split equally between Siemens 
and Allis Chalmers. The impact 
of D-Mark appreciation on 
Siemens profits this year could 
emerge at around DM 150m.

Esselte beats sales 


and profit targets 


by william dullforce 


STOCKHOLM, June 16. 


ESSELTE. THE Swedish office 
equipment, packaging and print- 
ing group which took over Dvmo 

industries of San Francisco ’last 
month, made a pre-tax profit of 
SKr 154m {$33.5m> 0 n a 

SKr2.45bn (£532m) turnover in 
the financial year ended March 
31. Adjusted earnings were 
SKr 32 a -share against SKr 29. 

.The Board proposes to pay an 
unchanged SKr 8 a. share on ihe 
increased share capital, making 
a total payment of SKr 25m 
against SKr 20.9m in the pre- 
vious year. It also recommends 
a one-for-flve bonus Issue. 

Esselte set growth Targets at 
the beginning of the year of 10 
per cent for both sales and earn- 
ings. Sales were up 14 per cent 
and earnings before extra- 
ordinary items rose by S per cent. 
However, the pre-tax figure in- 
cludes SKr 15m in currency 
losses and, if these are excluded, 
the profit growth would have 
measured over 11 per cent. 

Tb preliminary 1977-7S report 
attributes the increase in earn- 
ings exclusively to the foreign 
companies, with profit develop- 
ments in the Swedish operations 
cancelling each other out. The 


forecast for the current year is 
of a 15 per cent increase in saies 
and a somewhat slower profit 
growth. These figures exclude 
Dymo Industries, which had a 
turnover of just under SKr lbo 
in 1976-77. 

Esse lie's proposed bonus issue 
will be covered by writing up the 
value of the parent company's 
fixed property. Shareholders will 
net a new share of the same cate- 
gory for each 10 shares currently 
held and a new B share for each 
10 shares irrespective of cate- 
gory. 

The extra issue of B shares 
will, it is hoped, boost trading 
in this slock and facilitate the 
bunching of shares or conver- 
tible debentures on foreign mar- 
kets.

Advance at 
C. G. Smith 
Investments 


By Richard Rolfc 


JOHANNESBURG, Juno 10. 
FIGURES FROM C- G- Smith 
.Investments, lhc Durban-based 
holding company for various tex- 
tile and siiG«i r interesis, show 
increased group profit after .lax. 
With a rise from R 15.4 in to 
Rl7.2in ($l9.Sin> :md a one cent 
improvement in the dividend to 
27c. The shares, at 230c. yield 
11.7 per cent and. unlike the 
majority of large industrial 
groups,’ stand at the same price 
as a year ago. 

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

Results published by G. G. 
Smith and Co. the unlisted top 
company of the group, with 66 
per cent of C. G. Smith Invest- 
ments. showed an increase from 
R9.6m to Rll -5ni ($13 2m) in net 
attributable profit. The Board 
says that although she sale of 
its stake in Stranger Pulp and 
Paper (the venture with Read 
International) is "still condi- 
I tonal,'* the inrcstmenl has been 
written off against the surplus on 
revaluation of other investments 
and h provision made for the 
balance due in terms of the 
agreement. Shareholders will be 
informed when the agreement is 
finalised. 

It was announced in late April

Rhone-Poulenc moves out of the red 


BY DAVID CURRY 


PARIS, June 16. 


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

In 1977 the group recorded a 
FFr S4m (SlS.3m) consolidated 
profit on a turnover of FFr 23.6bn 
(S53bn) after accounting for 
some FFr 258ni of extraordinary 
gains and for the commitment of 
some FFr 325m towards the re- 
organisation of its heavily loss* 
making textile operations is 
France. 


-In '1975 ihe group had lost 
FFr 941m after seeing its turn- 
over slip from FFr 20.35bn io 
FFr 17.S5bn while in 1976 losses 
totalled FFr 364m on sales of 
FFr 31.74ha. 

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


largest client, accounting for 
some 23 per cent of sales. After 
a series of heavy losses in textiles, 
the group unveiled at the end of 
fast year a drastic reorganisation 
plan worked out by JL Jean 
Gandois who had heen brought 
imo the group from the steel 
industry and Is the heir apparent 
to the present chairman, M- 
Rcnaud Gillet. 

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

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


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

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

The bright spot last year was 
the 15JB per cent gain in the 
health and plant welfare sectors 
(to account for some 23 per cent 
of sales), but whereas fine 
chemicals had a relatively brisfbt 
year, the petrochemical and 
polymer sectors were consis- 
tently depressed — so that 
chemicals as a whole stood 
relatively still accounting for 
some 42.3 per cent of turnover. 

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


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

Investments of FFr 1.48bn last 
year were financed without re- 
course to additional indebted- 
ness, although the need for work- 
ing capital meant that there was 
an across-the-board increase in 
borrowing. The final profit was 
arived at after FFr 1.37bn in 
provisions and FFr l.TSbn in 
financial charges. The group 
shed some 2,200 jobs over the 
year. 

Overseas growth continued to 
outdistance the performance in 
France, with sales made overseas 
reaching 59 per cent of the total 
against 57 per cent the previous 
year. 


BiUerud, Uddeholm agree 


BY WILLIAM DULLFORCE 

DETAILS OF ihu proposed 
merger between the BiJleru d 
pulp and paper company and 
the forest-l>as<-d operations of 
the Uddeholm conglomerate have 
been agreed l»v ihe boards of 
the two companies and will be 
submitted to sharehulderc at the 
annual meetings on June 3n. 

BiUerud ’-v ill take over Uddo 
hoJni's forests, pulp, paper, 
timber and chemical onerations 
from August 1 and will change 
its name to BiUerud Uddeholm. 
BiUerud Uddeholm will is'aie 
sufficient naw shares to enable 
Uddeholm to obtain 30 ner cent 
fJ 5Kr of its expanded 

share capital at a price of 120

under SKr 700m. BiUerud stated 
yesterday that the situation 
called for The closing down of 
units operating at a loss and a 
move Towards paper grades 
which were more economical in 
wood consumption and of the 
type not exposed io direct com- 
petition from North American 
manufacturers. 

The merger would bring 
lower operating and administra- 
tive costs and allow investments 
to be coordinated. The increase 
in forest property would be a 
strength factor. 

A further loss was inevitable 
in 197S and was likely to reach 
helween SKr 150m and SKr 200m. 
Payment of a dividend would not 
he ** conwatihie with the com- 
pany's Jnnje-term interests." If 
another loss was to be avoided 
in 1979. a substantial increase 
in the prices of finished goods 
would hp needed. 

Uddeholm announced that a 
reduction in lhc loss on its steel 
operations of SKr 100-150m this 
year wa« “ fullv possible”: It* 
pmver plant? were expected to 
contribute annual earnings of 
SKr 90-I00m over the next few 
years. Neither steel nor the 
power plants are included in the 
merger with BiUerud.

Smelter closure boosts tin 


BY OUR COMMODITIES STAFF 


TI>; PRICED reached their 
highest leveU since December on 
7 he London Metal Exchange this 
week. Standard grade cash tin 
climbed to £ti.905 a tonne at one 
stase before falling back on 
.profit-taking-last aigbr to £».<<»

The market' was boosted by 
news that an industrial dispute 
had closed the Capper Pass 
smelter at Hull. • 

Capper Pass, a subsidies of 
The Rio Tinto Zinc group, 
warned when declaring jorce 
tndjeare on contracted delivenes 
with immediate effect, that the 
. cutback in supplies would last .at 
least a month because uf Jhe

after the 



recent surge in prices Which 
followed the invasion of Zaire's 
Shaba province, continued to. hit 
the copper market. Further 
downward pressure was exerted 
by the decision of Asarco, one 
of the leading U.S. producers, to 
cut its’ domestic copper price by 
2 cents to 65 cents a pound dess 
■than three weeks after it .bad 

raised the price. - - . 

The cut was quickly followed 
by other North American pro- 
ducers and was taken as confi> 
mation that consumer demand 
for copper remains slugg's^, to 
spite of reports of some baying 
by the Chinese. . . 

Copper cash wirebars held 
steady yesterday to close at 

£712.25 a tonne, £37.50 down on 

^Worid'sugar fell to its lowest 
price -level for three months, 
mainly as a result of the exten- 
of the ratification period for

the International Sugar Council 
that the introduction of its con- 
tribution system for the estab- 


lishment of a reserve stock fund 
should be po&tponed.- 

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

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

The pact has been operating 
provisionally since the beginning 
of this year, but it still heeds 
ratification from several ro em- 
bers — including the U.S. — to 
become fully operative 

London coffee futures prices 
fell back as excitement over the 
recent series of Brazilian frost 
scares died down. Weather in 
the main coffee-producing areas 
was much warmer throughout 
the . week and this encouraged 
many speculators to take their 
profits. 

The September price fell to 
£1,659 a tonne at one time 
before closing at £1.667,5 a tonne 
yesterday— down £99 on the 
week.' 

The cocoa market continued 
very quiet, with the September 
futures quotation closing £'-4.75 
up on balance at £1,661.75. 

In the absence of any signfi- 
cant fundamental news, much 
attention has been focused on 
the prospects for the negotia- 
tion of a - new International 
Cocoa Agreement when the cur- 
rent pact runs out io September 
1979. 

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

between 9 per cent and 10 per 
cent far secured call loans at the 
end of the day. 

The market was faced with a 
slight nei take up of Treasury 
bills and an increase in the note 
circulation. This was in addition 
lo ihe exceptionally large loans 
made to (he market on Thursday 
which had to be repaid. 

On the other hand. Government 
disbursements exceeded revenue 
transfers to ihe Exchequer and 
banks brought forward balances 
above larceL In the interbank 
market, overnight loans opened at 
Ili-UJ per cent and firmed to 
32-121 per cent before easing lo 
113-12 per cent and this level 
saw a sreater part of the day’s 
business. However. rates 
fluctuated before closing balances 
were uiken at S-9 per cent. 

At the weekly Treasury biU 
tender. Ihe average rate of 
discount fell 0.2903 per cent to 
ii.KMJ? per ceni. The minimum 
accepted bid wax £97.71! com- 
pared with £07.65 last week and 
bids at that level were met as 
in about 20 per cent. The £300m 
bills tendered and allotted 
oiiroc/cd bids of £SS6.42m and all 
bid- ofTered were allotted. Next 
week £UH>m will be on offer. 


Trading in yesterday’s foreign 
exchange market remained 
extremely quiet ahead or the 
weekend. Sterling showed little 
change and traded against ihe 
U.S. dollar within a very narrow 
range of Sl.8285-1 J5320. The open- 
ing level was $1.8205-1.S. , I05 and 
Ihe little business that did occur 
was around the sLROUO level. The 
pound finished at >1.8305-1. SO 1 5. a 
rise of just 5 poinis. On Bank 
of England figures, the pound's 
trade weighted index remained 
at 81.3 having shown a slight 
improvement during the morning 
to (51.4. - 

The US. dollar started (he day 
on a firmer note mainly rcfieciing 
the fall, in Japan's trade surplus 
for May. There appeared to be 
little reaction to the rise in IAS. 
prime rates, this having been 
largely discounted in the market. 
So with the opening of New York 
markets, the dollar appeared to 
suffer from a certain amount of 
over reaction and ended sit its 
weakest level again*! most cur- 
rencies. Trading was again very 
quiet and the dollar fell to 
SwPr 1.8925 from SwFr 1.3025 in 
terms- of the Swiss franc, while 
rhe West German mark also 
improved lo DM 2.091(5 from 
DM 2.0950. The Japanese yen

Cruising means 



Saturdav June 17 1978 



BY JOHN BRENNAN 


BY LYNTON McLAlN 


RADICAL innovation is not 
normally expected in Britain's 
Stale-owned industries, least of 
ail from a chief executive who 
has «pent half a century in the 
same business and has only a 
year t«« yo nefore retirement. 

Yet la»l Wednesday Mr. Ross 
■Stainton. chief executive and 
deputy chairman of British 
.Airways, with nearly 45 years in 
the airline business, blew the 
corporate whistle f"r a new. 
a cros-th e-hoard era or low price 
aviation. 

In so doins. ihe likeable Mr. 
Stainion has pre-empted ail other 
major airlines in sotting the 
parameters few will be able lu 
escape from when the low price 
era really yets airborne early- 
next year. 

That the orhers will take off 
and follow Mr. Staintun's care- 
fully planned course Tor future 
survival is beyond douhl. There 
may be variations on the Stain- 
ton theme of three distinct 
classes of airline passenyer: first 
cluh or economy and discount, 
but the changes in the mix of 
passengers since the start of 
trans-Atlantic jet travel leave 
n.i room for airlines that du nut 
react rapidly. 

in the 1950s. 30-40 per cent of 
all Atlantic air travel was done 
by businessmen. This fell by 
half in the early 1960s. when the 


INSTITUTIONAL opposition to 
Barela;- s Bar.k s planned £92.6m 
Takeover too Invest ment Trust 
Oj moral mo resulted yesterday 
in the laum-hing of a special in- 
vestigation by the Investment 
Protection Committee uf the 
National Aisociauon of Pension 
Funds. 

Barclay-' -Merchant Bank, 
achisiiu: us parent on the invest- 
ment trust dcai. is “ puzzled " by 
the call fur an investigation. 

The r.to: ■.■ raises a question 
over the '-ank’s claim that its 
insiituLion.-i! shareholders are 
content v. Hi* its proposals, 
announced earlier this week, for 
a share acquisition of ihe trust 
and an immediate resale for 
£$5m cash to the Post Office 
Pension Fund. 

Mr. Georg*? Dennis of the Post 


Office fund, who declined tn dis- 
cuss the matter yesterday, is the 
current chairman of the Pension 
Fund-*' Investment Protection 
Committee. 

Mr. Graham TitTord of the 
British Petroleum fund has been 
appointed tn chair the investiga- 
tion. 

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


Benefit 

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

It feels that the £S5m cash 
injection might have been 
achieved more equitably by a 
direct call on the bank's share- 
holders. 


Barclays believes that most of ! 
its institutional shareholders are | 

satisfied with the proposal*- It I 

argues that the stability of the j 
bank's share price after the an-j 
nouncement and the ease with; 
which the new shares were . 
underwritten confirm the eight j 
of City backing. J 

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

BY ROBERT GRAHAM 


MADRID. June 15- 


THE SPANISH Cabinet to-day 
.approved a lonc-a waited decree 
'authorising the establishment uf 
i foreign banks m the country. 


J The terms arc deliberately 
! restrictive and. of more than 60 
j foreign banks that have expressed 
; interest in establishing them- 
j selves in Spain, no more than 15 
j are expected to accept the condi- 
[ lions initial!:*. 


**** W 



! Two of those are likely to be 
j British — Barclays and National 
| Westminster Lloyds is already 
i represented through its Bank of 
: London and South" America sub- 
: si diary. Bolsa 

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



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


ing to align itself more with Ihe 
rest of Europe. 

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

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

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

For subsidiaries, foreign hanks 
will have to pay Pta 1.5 bn 
t£10mi to cover capital and re- 
serve requirements. 

Branches will have to pay 
Pta 750m (£5mj— charges con- 
sidered high by European stan- 
dards. 

However, the cost of establish- 


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

Foreign banks opting for; 
either subsidiaries or branch 1 
operations i limited to a tola! of: 
three > will be allowed to buy 
pesetas freely on the inter-bank 
market 

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

However, the limitation is pro- 
bably notional because of the 
difficulty foreign banks wiil have 
in attracting substantia] deposits. 

Foreign banks will be entitled 
to remit profits in accordance 
with the laws regarding foreign 
investment 

But they will be oblige! to 
observe the 6 per cent limitation 
that applies to Spanish banks 
dividends. 


THE GILT-EDGED market was 
quiet and rather subdued yes- 
terday in the wake of the 
Government’s two issues total- 
ling fl.Sbn of stock. 

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

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

The Financial Times Govern- 
ment securities index lost 0.13 
to 70.44. a rise of 0.18 over the 
past week.

■H years iu the industry 
15-20 per cent of seals taken by 
first das.-* passengers had fallen 
to lo per cent. Now only 5 per 
cent nf all jjr passengers travel 
first class. 

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

Other factors have contributed 
to British Airways" decision. Air 
lines across the Atlantic have for 
many years been barely covering 
their costs. Many flights have 
been possible only through sub- 
sidies from other routes. This 
constant drain is no loncer 
acceptable. Mr. Stainion has 
recognised, with the help of a 
strong team and a much-boosted 
morale in the former British 
European Airway a and BOAC 
operations of BA. that each Tare 
class must now pay ns way on 
afi routes. The structure he now 
envisages should do this. But 
the important proviso is that 
business passengers who want lo 
be certain of cettinc' their seats, 
must now pay for the privilege. 

All these radical changes have 
been steered by Mr. Stain ton 
thmugh an airline where fare 
structures, up to now. have been 
hardly distinguishable from any 
other airline: such has been the 
power of TATA. 

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

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

Whether his opposite numbers 
at the forthcoming IATA con- 
ference in Montreal agree re- 
mains to be seen. But they should 
take heed from Mr. Stainton's 
approach to these meetings. At 
an IATA meeting io Bermuda II 
years ago, scheduled to start at 
9.00 a.m.. Ross Stainton took 
what he describes as his "medi- 
cine." a rnund oT golf. It was 
hardly light when he went on 
the course at 5.50 a.m. On the 
third hole, “l was so sleepy 1 
kept my head down and took a 
swing at the ball. It was 
obviously an approach to the 

"ante that worked. He sunk the 
ball in a single shot. How many 
airlines will follow ms ‘ heads

economics we will know by

BY CHRISTIAN TYLER, LABOUR EDITOR 


jA STRIKE PLANNED by elec- 
tricians in up to 1 00 hospitals 
throughout the country from 
Monday was postponed last night 
after a new pay offer from, the 
j Government was accepted as 
l “a basis for negotiatiun.'' 
j The executive council of the 
I Electrical and Plumbing Trades 
Union, representing about 5.500 
I electricians in the Health Service 
I will decide on Monday whether 
I to call of as well a proposed pro- 
I gramme of other industrial 
j action, including overtime bans, 
j in hospitals. 

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

Mr. Ennals said lust night that 
a revised offer had been put to 
the union which he believed 
would improve the pay of Health 
Service electricians by bringing 
alt or most of them into the 
Health Service productivity 

scheme, which is within the pay 
guidelines. 

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

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

Both sides were hopeful that 
a satisfactory set i lenient would 
be reached eventually without 
further resort to a call for a 


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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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


Meanwhile, In their ' latest 
monetary bulletin. stock- 

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

The possibility of a wage 

explosion following recent 

excessive monetary expan- 

sion, they say, has now 
receded. 

But double digit inflation is 
still -all too likely,” and they 
do not believe that last week’s 
package is adequate. 44 We still 
have serious reservations about 
the stance of fiscal policy." 

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

“ Our conclusion is that the 
latest re-introduction of the 
corset will probably not mark 
major turning points of the 
economy and Interest rates as 
it did on the previous two 
occasions." 


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

In Germany, BP is already 
moving towards a break-even 
position after two years ofheavy 
losses: The immeditae effect ef 
its agreement with Veba will he 
to raise the throughput in its 
German refineries and improved 
the marketing mix- Bat what lti 
describes as “ the jewel in the' 
crown" is the 25 per cent hold-, 
ing which it is acquiring in 
Ruhrgas, Germany’s largest gas 
transmission company. Ruhrgas 
is covered with its gas require- 
ments through to 1885, and the 
hope is that its needs thereafter 
could be tied in with some of 
BP’S upstream activities. Even 
before then, BP will be looking 
on Ruhrgas as more than just a 
portfolio investment and it says 
that in financial terms the 
German package is very attrac- 
tive.

' acquiring low margin ■ sales, of 
: £l60m or so for £110in cash, 
plus debt obligations of a siini- 
-lar magnitude. But as with the. 
Veba deal. BP has decided to' 
■ tackle a problem by pottin g in 
more money, rather, than by try-, 
ing to draw in its horns. . 

-Overall BP will probably now. 
end up with a slightly higher 
level of financial gearing at the 
end of this year. That is before 
taking into account the copsoli-' 
dation of Sohio, which stands to 
lift the proportion of debt to 
capital employed by over .12 
points to 50 per cent or more. 
BP loftily describes this as 
"an accounting gimmick, .which 
. makes no difference to its finan- 
cial obligations. Profvided -that 
the U.S. rating agencies see 
things the same way— which 
apparently they do — and pro- 
vided that those two pipelines 
keep gurgling merrily, all will 
be well.

The French Caisse Nationale

pared with the i per cent at 
which the banks had succeeded in 
holding the minimum spread,

The loan has a maturity of 10

which is still sluggish. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

BUSINESS CENTRES 


Tarling to be extradited 


BY MARGARET REID 


MR.' RICHARD TARLING. a 
former business colleague of Mr. 
Jim Slater, the financier, is to be 
extradited to Singapore later 
this month to face five charges 
under the company law there. 

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

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


pore Government at the begin- 
ning of last year. 

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

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


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


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

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

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


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

This fall was expected by 
both government and industry 
experts, and does not mean 
that (he borne building sector 
is fulling into another reces- 
sion yeL Nevertheless it Is 
clear that higher interest rates 
and scarcer availability . of 
mortgage finance arc beginning 
to be felt 

The Government reported 
that personal income rose last 
month by 0,9 per cent. This 
contrasts with a revised 1.3 
per cent advance in April and 
1.4 per cent In March.
