Financial' Times Friday November- 10* 1978* 

OFFICIALLY, Czechoslovakia 

has now returned 10 complete 
‘^normality." In foreign relations 
this was represented by tbe visit 
which Mr. Leonid Brezhnev, the 
Sovier President, made to the 
Hag-bedecked capital, Prague, in 
May. Ecfore (hat Mr. Gustav 
Hujak. (he Czech President and 
Parly leader paid a state visit to 
Wes! Hermans. Czechoslovakia's 
moii important Western neigh- 
bour and trading partner and so 
brake the isolation of the post- 
1968 Czech regime from top level 
official visits to the West. 

1 1 is true Mr. Husak received 
a distinctly muted welcome and 
that press comment was decided- 
ly hostile. But the Czech regime 
wa3 not surprised since It views 
the western press with deep sus- 
picion and complains bitterly of 
the lack of objectivity shown in 
the reporting of Czech affairs. 

Internally loo Czechoslovakia 
presents a picture of "normal- 
ity.” I was stopped at Prague 
airport and waited an hour and 
a-half while the security 1 police 
consulted the Ministry of the 
Interior about two hooks in my 
possession. I was finally allowed 
to proceed with the hooks after 
I explained lhar they were re- 
quired reading for my job and 
that I had taken both of them 
into the Snvier Union earlier this 
year. One honk was a history of 
ihe Snclalist states of Eastern 
Europe, the other an outline of 
Soviet Foreign policy written by 
a British diplomat.' 

Prague itself is a bustling city. 
The pride of the city authorities 
is rhe new Prague underground 
which has been expanding at the 
average pace of one kilometre 
per year for the last eleven years. 
It was originally conceived as a 
modest affair to put the trams 
underground in the congested 
city centre as cheaply as possible. 
Since 1969. however, it has 
become a symbol of Soviet- 
Czc-eh co-oneration. bas high 
priority in the national plan and 



Moscow’s fold 


has escalated mightily both in 
costs and in imports of Soviet- 
made equipment. 

Each of the 16 stations bas a 
vast marble, glass and aluminium 
concourse with brightly lit 
advertisements for fork lift 
trucks, mini-calculators and 
various foreign trade organisa- 
tions. The shops are full of 
domestic appliances and the 
better shops stock well-cut 
clothes from Czechoslovakia. 
Hungary, Poland and Yugoslavia. 
Butchers shops are crammed 
with meat and salami. 

Restaurants and beer cellars 
are well patronised and service 
in the hotels and restaurants

traditions of courtesy and 

A few western newspapers, in- 
cluding the Financial Times, are 
available in the lobbies of inter- 
national hotels and at the airport, 
but apparently nowhere else. 
Prague is. however, a good place 
to obtain a vast selection of 
Soviet newspapers and maga- 
zines and to view the latest 
Soviet filra*. 

Western films arc also on offer; 
some in the original language 
with sub-titles. 

Theatres and concerts are also 
crowded and Prague in the early 
evening is full of ladies in long 
evening dresses with their 
escorts. Even access to the fully 
booked nightclubs which abound 
in the centre is "for the evening 
dressed only" as one notice put 
it. Bookshops are also full of 
well-produced books. The 

children’s hooks, in particular, 
are excellent. 

But the official Interest In 
Czechoslovakia's cultural life in 
a wider sense is also reHecled in 
the large-scale programme of 

sites when they are offered 
higher bonuses help in obtaining 
apartments and other perks. 
One other reason which is not 
mentioned by officials is that 
in recent years there has been a 

Life in Prague goes on as usual though the 
Government is still actively pursuing the 
signatories of Charter 77, who form the heart of 
the dissident movement in the country. And 
although the Czech people are enjoying rising 
living standards, their attitude towards Moscow 
seems to be more one of resigned acceptance than 
of ideological fervour. 

restoration work which is now 
taking place. Many of Prague’s 
splendid baroque, gothic and 
Bohemian renaissance buildings 
arc covered with scaffolding. 
Unfortunately work is progress- 
ing very slowly — partly because 
new housing projects, factories, 
power stations, coal urines, trans- 
port infrastructure and other 
projects have higher priority in 
the national plan and partly 
because there is a shortage of 

Under the planned economy, 
officials said, there is no unem- 
ployment. On the contrary, the 
high priority given to developing 
the economy has opened so many 
construction sites at the same 
time that there arc not enough 
skilled workers to man them. 

The result is a drifting labour 
force as workers move to other 

boom in the construction of 
country cottages part of a wide- 
spread parallel indsutry of moon- 
light labour and purloined 
materials. Giving bribes and 
doing favours to get things done 
is usual and applies to every- 
thing from setting spare parts 
for the family car to foreign cur- 
rency for a holiday ajbroad 
Despite the labour shortage nnt 
all labour is used to the best 
advantage which is partly a 
question of labour hoarding, 
partly a lack of flexibility in 
economic planning. An attempt 
is being made to solve these 
problems by wbat is called “ the 
complex economic experiment of 
quality and efficiency'* aimed at 
giving greater managerial flexi- 
bility to ISO export orientated 
companies. But part oF the prob- 
lem is what to do with the half 

million party members purged 
after I960 and the 1.000 or. so 
“ official " dissidents who signed 
Charter 77. Government officials 
said that most of the purged 
party members are now doing 
ordinary jobs, like the former 
party secretary Alexander 
Dubcek who has a job as a clerk 
in the forestry commission in 

Another person now working 
elsewhere is Mr. Julius Tomin, 
a former professor of Greek 
Philosophy at the Charles 
University. He is a nigbtwatch- 
man at the Prague zoo. 

He is currently recovering his 
health after a three-week hunger 
strike shared by 24 other dissi- 
dents in protest against the 
arrest and heating up of Mr. Jaro- 
slav Sabata, one of the three 
official Charter spokesmen- Mr. 
Sabata was one of a group' of 
Czech dissidents who arranged to 
meet dissidents from Poland at 
the Gzecb-Polish frontier a month 
ago and was badly beaten by. 
secret policemen in the police 
station when he tried to flush 
some papers down the toilet. He 
is still in jail and awaiting trial 
on charges of assaulting the 

The authorities reaction is 
seen by Chartists as a. symptom 
of the new Insecurity engendered 
by the strength of the dissident 
movement in Poland and the 
new situation created by the 
election of a Pope from Poland. 

Tbe Church is nothing like 
as strong in Czechoslovakia as 
in Poland. But in both Prague 
and the Slovakian capital 

Bratislava I attended packed 
church services with many young 
people among the congregations. 

Communist Party membership 
too has been built up to well over 
a million members, after a big 
effort to recruit workers and 
young people. How much of the 
membership is ideologically 
motivated and bow much oppor- 
tunism motivated by the advant- 
ages of membership is impossible 
to judge. But to tbe observer it 
is difficult to see much evidence 
of ideological vigour in the 
slogans proclaiming endless 
friendship with the Soviet Union 
and glory to the 61 st anniver- 
sary of the October Revolution 
which drape public buildings. 

The view or western diplomats 
and businessmen is that the 
overall mood is one of resigned 
acceptance of the posM96S gov- 
ernment coupled with enjoyment 
at the undoubted rise in living 
standards, social security, health 
and welfare payments over the 
last decade. Much will depend on 
the ability of tbe system to 
guarantee this steady rise Id the

Poehl confident 
U.S. moves will 

aid $ recovery 


CONFIDENCE IN a durable 
recovery of the U.S. dollar was 
expressed here today by Herr 
Karl Otto Poehl, vice-president of 
the Bundesbank. He did not 
believe that President Carter’s 
recent measures to arrest the 
decline of the dollar bad come 
too late, but thought the U.S. 
Administration appeared to be 
accepting the risk of pushing the 
country into a recession. 

He thought the U.S. balance 
of payments was on the path to 
improvement and he agreed with 
forecasts that tbe current 
account deficit in 1979 would be 
lower than this year's. 

Although the political motives 
“ are by far the mast import- 
ant.'’ however, there were solid 
economic advantages to be 
gained' by creating a zone of 
stability embracing tbe coun- 
tries which accounted for at least 
half the foreign trade of the 

Any agreement on fixed ex- 
change rates in Europe would 
exert “ irresistible pressure " on 
member countries to harmonise 
their policies if the system were 
not to break apart at an early 

“ Decisions on technical details 
will have to be based an agree- 
ment about economic and 
monetary policy objectives,* 1 he 
said. ‘‘The one principle which 
must not be given up is that the 
system must foster not only 
external, but internal, stability 
— the rules of tbe system must be 
strict enough to contribute to 
the step-by-step reduction of 
Inflation in Europe." 

“They contain the elements of 
new destabilising reactions at 
some point, for example when 
finally the markets sec a change 
for. the better in fundamental 
economic conditions" 

Herr Poehl underlined the im- 
portance of the U.S. decision to 
raise interest rales and to finance 
the balance of payments deficit 
by raising foreign currency 
loans. A U.S. team had been in 
Frankfurt yesterday to discuss 
such a fund-raising operation, he 

Turning to the proposed Euro- 
pean Monetary System (EMSh 
Herr Poehl was confident that the 
transitional stage could begin on 
January 1. The central idea of the 

PARIS. Nov. 9. 

EMS was “ to use external mone- 
tary policy as a stepping stone to 
greater political and economic 
integration in Europe. 1 ’ 

Speaking to am investment con- 
ference organised by the Banque 
Rothschild, Herr oPebl expressed 
West Germany's resolve lo sup- 
port the “new determination of 
the U.S. authorities’* even though 
this might initially create some 
problems for Bonn’s monetary 

The dollar's real value had 
been underestimated by the 
markets, he said, noting that, 
from the end of 1976 in the low 
point reached by the dollar last 
month, the external value of the 
French franc in real terms « for 
example the exchange rate after 
elimination the difference in 
inflation rales) rose by 18 per 
cent, that oF the D-mark by 24 
per cent, and that of sterling by 
34 per cent. 

“ Such large shifts in exchange 
rates have quite obviously com- 
pletely lost touch with the 
realities of economic lire.*’ be 

It was important to get a 
monetary system off tbe ground 
with realistic exchange rates and 
allowing for exchange rate 
changes to offset differences in 
rates of inflation in Europe. 

The cardinal problem was the 
size of intervention obligations, 
because such interventions “ can 
completely puli the nig from 
under domestic monetary 
policy." It was important, there- 
fore. that there should he a grow- 
ing degree of harmonisation with 
respect to economic, fiscal and 
monetary policy and that 
exchange rate adjustment? 
should he made where necessarv 
to keep intervention obligations 
within limits. 

While intervention could take 
place before the limits had heen 
reached “ we reject an auto- 
matic obligation *' to do so 
because this would be unreason- 
ably one-sided and create an 
intervention system within an 
intervention system, Herr Poehl 

He saw no need for parity 
adjustments among members of 
the existing European currency 
snake but said that newcomers 
would have to enter on 
“realistic” parities. 

Credit Agricole fights bid 
to change tax privileges 


French state-controlled farmer's 
bank,, and the third biggest bank 
in the world by assets, has fumed 
down the Government's first 
proposals for a modification of 
its privileges, including exemp- 
tion from company and payroll 

The decision by the bank's 
representatives says something 
about the independence that 
even state-controlled institutions 
have under the mixed French 
banking system. 

But the Credit Agricole will 
clearly be unable to hold out 
indefinitely against the pressure 
which has been building up to 
change its status. 

The private banks have been 
campaigning for years to per- 
suade the authorities to put the 
Credit Agricole on . a footing 
closer to that of the other banks 
and their appeals have lately 
found favour with the Govern- 
ment. which also feels that the 
bank is growing too fast. 

PARIS. Nov;-.'*.’.-. 

■V.. ■ 

The Credit Agncole appears to 
have accepted that its profits— or 
surpluses, since it is theoretically 
a non-profit making co-operative 
—should be taxed, on. condition 
that it is granted the right lo 
extend its activities lo areas from 
which it is excluded. 

But tbe Governmenl's proposals 
in this respect have not come up 
to the bank's expectations. 

While the Credit Agricole, . 
which has branches in big cities 
but can give loans only to client? 
in municipalities with no more 
than 7,500 inhabitants, wants to 
spread its lending activities in 
larger towns, the Government has 
offered to raise the ceiling to 
only 10,000 inhabitants.

1977 of FFr 3*29bn t about £3Sbn) 
and FFr 127bn in medium-and 
long-term loans, the Credit 
Agricole collects more titan 
25 per cent of total bank deposits

than doubled in five years from 
FFr TRbn in 1972 to FFr lfi.flbn

Monnet foundation set up 

Eo (Financial Director, major UKcompany) 

Recently; an independent research company- 
talked to 200 financial directors of major European 
companies; but in order that the respondents could feel 
free to talk openly their identities were not disclosed. The 
purpose of the survey was to discover Chases strengths. 

One particular virtue of Chase was clearly our 
foreign exchange expertise. 

The advantage'our dealers have is Chases 
pre-eminent position in the dealing markets. 

The advantage our customers have is that they* 
are able to enjoy direct contact with the dealers. So needs 
are better understood and the service is faster. 

A constant key to Chases leadership emerging 
from the research is simply this: 

Chase not only employ extremely good people, 

but also give them a system in which they can operate 
as effectively as possible for customers. 

The result is a highly personalised, very efficient 
service, praised by the respondent quoted above. 

He added, “I’m influenced by the people I deal with 
in the banks— and personally I prefer the Chase Bank. 

They give excellent service and are always ready to 
give f irst-class advice. My first choice always” 

He went on to sum up Chase’s 
advantage in one word, “people” 

Alan Ulrick who manages 
foreign exchange trading in London 
agrees. “Better bankers 
make Chase 
a better bank” 



A FOUNDATION is being set up 
in honour or 90-year-old M. Jean 
Monnet to promote studies in 
European unification of which 
M. Monnet was one of the prin- 
cipal proponents in the 
immediate postwar period. 

A preliminary meeting of rep- 
resentatives from various Euro? 
pean countries was held here 
today to set up the foundation, 
which will be based in Lausanne, 
wbere M. Mormet’s personal 
archives — eight tonnes of them — 
arc being stored. 

Founder members of the body 
include Mr. Edward Heath, tbe 
former British Conservative 
Premier. Herr Willy Brandt, the 
West German Social Democrat 
leader. M. Leo Tindemans, for- 
mer Belgian Prime Minister, and

Patronat chief 
warns of 
‘world crisis’ 

PARIS. Nov. 9. 

the French employers* associa- 
tion, the Patronat. said today 
that “all the elements of a new 
woi-ld-«lde crisis are starting to 
fit together.” 

He told a news conference that 
the French economic recovery 
was fragile and remained at the 
mercy of such a crisis. 

He pointed to the threat of a 
shortage of oil supplies to the 
industrial, nations, due to the 
troubles in Iran, the risk of an 
increase in -energy prices, and 
the possibility of a “ violent ** 
attack on the dollar. 

The French economy was 
recovering “ slowly but surely," 
but has sUll some way to go. For 
this reason, the Patronat bad 
remonstrated against the labour 
unresil in Frimee in the past, few 
weeks, he said.

with the federal coverninenl in 
Washington. The Ggbt is about 
aecess m. and exploitation of. 
the public- ’and? and the battle 
is about the .Mining Law of 1S72. 

The lSTi* law was one of :i 
seric-s of acts designed lo open 
up the West for new settlers. 
The search For minerals on 
public iands was actively 
encouraged hy giving the pros- 
pector the title to land and what 
lay beneath i? if he discovered 
any muioivjis. He had the right 
or exploitation in his own good 

“ It was a good law Tor tbs 
purpose fi*r which it was 
designed — - tu open up new 
frontiers. We have different 
frontiers today — wise use and 
management of all our re- 
sources." Mr. Cecil Andrtia. the 
present Secretary of the Interior 
told tiie mining industry 

So the arguments about the 
reform of the 1S7‘J law arc argu- 
ments about what rights mining 
companies and individual pvos- 
peeiurs should have on the 
public lands and what they 
should give in return, if any. 
ihing. for those rights. 

‘ Two -side?; of the argument-— 
the Administration’* desire id 
achieve j measure of control and 
ihe industry's i-Liim for as much 
freedmn as p«iv»i bit*— were encap- 
sulated in Bills which died when 
the 95th Congress went into 
recess |as» month. 

The Bills are likely to be 
revived in the 96th Congress 
with the measure favouring the 
industry sponsored probably hy 
Representative Morris Udall. the 
Arizona Democrat who is chair- 
man nf the House Inferior Com- 
mittee. Previously the Bill had

sentative Philip Ruppe of Michi-

that mining is the only economic 
activity on public lands which 
rent at ns basically utiftntrolled. 
despite the proliferation over the 
last decade of mure stringetti 
environmental laws. Once a 

company gains in ihe land 

it ha*> very wide discretion over 
its use. 

The response to this situation 
has been to dose large tracts of 
land to the industry— wilderness 
areas, where roads are forbidden, 
nave been created, for example. 
But. as Mr. Andrus confessed. 
“The withdrawal authority is a 
blunt tool at best for managing 
public laoc^-' 

In short, what the 1S72 law 
gives is being taken away by 
other laws, plus a battery of regu- 
lations and court decisions. Only 

Botb sides adopt tiie 
principle of the 
multiple use of public 
lands but place different 
emphasis ou what is 
meaut by the term. 

a skeleton of the 1S72 law 
remains, but th*; rights and obli- 
gations of mining companies on 
public lands still requt re- 

Certainly the companies will 
never enjoy ihe freedom they 
once had. The Federal Land 
Policy and Management Act uf 
197R gave the slate authority if- 
manage public lands and for ihe 
first time embraced the concept 
that the state would actually 
retain and supervise the use of 
the lands. 

The industry has fonr prin- 
ciples it wants followed. First, 
prospecting should be encouraged 
to allow maximum but not 
exclusive access to the public 
lands Second, a prospector 
should have exHusiv** *»vninrat‘nn 
rights fo any area where bis work 
h:i<- reached a detailed stage. 
Third, if a deposit is found. » 
prospector -should have the 
exclusive right to develop it. 
even if development might be 
deferred Final I v. Ihe law should 
provide a mining venture wilh 
secure 'enure. 

The Ruooe Bill went some way 
inwards meeting these demands. 
Il embodied ihe right of «Hf- 
iniiialion cihat is a company d'.^s 
what il wants to rlo in its men 
timei and wlmt is called ihe 
claim location patent svstem. This 
allows fur the grant of a title for 
ihe discovery, but the patent 

would cover Ihe minerals and not 
tlic land. At the same time tbe 
Bill envisaged Ihe payment OF a 
royally un product inn to the slate. 

The approach uf Inc Adminis- 
tration is w lu'il ly different. It 
would give tiie Depart men 1 of 
the Interior very- broad discre- 
tion to establish" the terms and. 
conditions for a mining lease, 
including the power uf veto. It 
would allow public bearings on 
claims for leases ant! provide 
For the protection and reclauia- 
li»n of ihe land. 

In mber words, the mining 
companies, instead of having a 

right to minerals found on pub- 
lic lands would have Lo justify 
the need for tbe development 
of ihe deposit in relation to 
other potential uses for tbe land. 

Both sides in the argument 
adopl i he principle or the mul- 
tiple use of public lands, but 
they place different emphases on 
what is meant by the lerui. “No 
areas should be closed to ex- 
ploration for minerals or t» 
mining in the absence of a com- 
pelling national interest which 
overrides the need for an ade- 
quate domestic- mineral supply.” 
says the American Mining Con- 

The Adm mistral ion does not 
automatically grant this priority. 
The BLM Organic Act provides 
for the management of public 
lands in a manner which pro- 
tects the quality of scientific, 
scenic, historical, ecological a:id 
environ menial values. At pre- 
sent both the Bureau of Land 
Management and the Forest Ser- 
vice are undertaking studies lo 
see huw the lands' should be 

Even if questions of land use 
are sorted uut, the industry re- 
mains Tearful uf bow the In- 
terior Department would handle 
a leasing system. 

But above all. the- industry 
wants to keep what it finds. At 
the recent American Mining 
Congress convention in Las 
Vegas. Mr. T. S. Ary of Utah 
International told delegates that 
he would not recommend mineral 
exploration tinder the conditions 
envisaged by the Administration.

THE CHANCES of the United ‘ federal budget before Parliament week, when it was raised to 

State Senate ratifying a new 
strategic arms limitation aerce- 
ment (SALT) with the Soviet 
Union next year have prohably 
been slightly, but not grievously, 
harmed as a result of yesterday’s 
Congressional elections. 

At first, it appeared that the 
Carter Administration had lost 
much key «upport with the defeat 
nf half a dozen prominent liberal 
Senators and the victories of 
three new Right-wins hardliners. 
Rut a closer analysis tends to 
bear out the Administration’s 
contention that it has incurred 
a net loss of no more than twn 
hackers of a SALT treaty, and 
perhaps not even that. 

A major treaty' has to he rati 
fieri by two-thirds of the Senate 
in order to become law and. even 
with President Carter’s recent 
triumphs in Congress, it has 
always been clear that a SALT 
treaty would he a close run 
thing. The President has not 
entirely ruled out presenting the 
treaty to Congress an Execu- 
tive Agreement, thereby petting 
round the two-thirds provision. 
But he would prefer not to take 
the highly controversial route. 

The Administration's losses 
yesterday are obvious: the five 
democratic liberals — Senators 
Clark in Towa. Haskell in Colo- 
rado. Sfacintyre in New Hamp- 
shire. Hathaway in Maine and 
Anderson in Minnesota — plus 
moderate Republican Edward 
Brooke from Massachusetts could 
have heen counted on to back 
a SALT treaty. 

Senators Clark and Macintyre, 
in particular, could have been 
expected tn play key roles on 
the Administration's behalf, 
using their considerable in- 
fluence in two key committees, 
the Foreign Relations Committee 
(Mr. Clark! ami the Armed Ser- 
vices Committee (Mr. Macintyrel,

Among the new Senators rep

change party hands. Mr. Paul 
Tsongas From Massachusetts 
would appear certain to support 
the treaty. 

Among the new Democratic 
Senators taking over Democratic 
seats, Mr. David Pryor from 
Arkansas, and Mr. Donald 
Stewart from Alabama seem 
more liberal than their predeces- 

Much may well depend on the 
committee assignments which 
will be determined by party 
caucuses early next year. One 
committee due for a major shake- 
up is Foreign Relations. It will 
have a new chairman, presum- 
ably Senator Frank Church, in 
place of the retired Senator John 
Sparkman, while two of the other 
nine Democrats (Mr. Clark and 
Mrs, Muriel Humphrey) and 
three o( the six Republicans 
(Mr. Clifford Case. Mr. James 
Pearson and Mr, RoHprf Griffin) 
will not be returning to Wash- 
ington. As a result of Iheir sains 
in the Senate, the Republicans 
can expect to cet an additional 
committee member. 

President Carter has shown 
himself quite adept at working 
with moderate Republicans nn 
some key foreign policy issues,

desirable approach.

What is the trend of capital 

:A STABLE summer has given 
"way to a stable autumn ia the 
property marker. After Spring's 
-near unanimous reports of 
sharply rising rents and falling 
/investment yields, surveyors 
throughout the country no«-' con- 
firm Institutional investors' reluc- 
tance to chase yields lower. 

Institutional demand for prime 
iproperties remains strong. But 
^in a thin market, with very few 
-good quality properties available, 
.the funds appear willing to allow 
rent increases to support capital 
values rather than entering a 
Dutch auction on yields. 

This view or the market 
.emerges from the ninth national 
poll of surveyors carried out by 
The Royal Institution of Char- 
tered Surveyors in cnnju fiction 
with the Financial Times. 

The laiesi poll, which tested 
-opinions ai ihe end of October, 
not onlv kill* any remaining 
speculation about an “over- 
healed ' investment market, it 
also confirms j continued, if 
still hiahl\ .'elective, rise in com- 
mon: ia I rents 

On a national basis. 7J per cent 
oF thf firms polled felt tb3t the 
inver I m on? market is now static. 
That is S per cent less than the 
June total. But the laiest figure 
is best >-u in pared with the Febru- 
arv poll when over SO per cent 
of’tbe firms reported that invest- 
ment activity was on the 

This sharp change. from 
activity earlier in rhe year to 
3 stable markei in the summer 
and autumn, would .suggest a 
decline of institutional interest 

in property but for tbe remark- 
ably consistent trend in invest- 
ment yields in the last two polls. 

Both In the summer and in 
the October polls firms reported 
either stable, or falling yields, 
which is clear evidence of con- 
tinued buying. Combined with 
tbe reports of investment market 
inactivity, this evidence suggests 
that it is the shortage of good 
properties at acceptable prices 
rather than funds' indifference 
to property investments that is 
keeping the market from over- 

Rent movements are. therefore, 
setting the pace for property 
values at the moment. And in 
looking at rents the laresl poll 
shows that tbe outstanding per- 
formance of prime -shop rents 
over the past year -shows no sign 
of failing. 

Central London ^uneyors re- 
main highly confident about 
prime shop rents, as everyone 
polled fee? that Wesi End rents 
are still rising, a feeling shared 
by all tbe firms considering prime 
shops in tbe whole of the 
Greater London Council area. 
Througout ihe country prime 
shops rate tbe most confident, 
unward rental trend of any type 
of property with a national vote 
of 91 per cent for rising rents. 

■4 per cent up on the June figure. 

Secondary shop rents are also 
beginning to enjoy the effects of 
a spill-over from thr- High Street 
spending boom. In -June. 52 per 
cent of the firms polled believed 
that secondary' rents were 
staic. now 58 per cent believe that 
l bey are on I he- rise and. as with 

prime shops, some of the 
strongest rental- growth is 
recorded in London and tbe South 

Tbe strength of the South East 
lettins market also shows through 
in industrial property. Overall, 
modern factory and warehouse 
rents continue to rise with 67 
per cent of the national poll re- 
porting a rising rental trend for 
factories compared to 53 per cent 
last time, and 73 per cent report- 
ing higher warehouse rents com- 
pared to June's 55 per cenL But 
the South East remains the most 
marked area of rental confidence. 

Alt ihe firms polled report that 
factory and warehouse rents are 
risina within Central London, 
and 85 per cent believe they are 
rivins in the rest of the South 
East. Rut ihe figures become Ifss 
clear-cut the further one inflv»s 
frnin the capital with a 5S per 
eenl vule for static factory rents 
iu the North, and w per cent 
tor static rents in Scotland. 

The picture of office rents is 
rather patchy. Enthusiasm for 
City offices has faded slightly. 
June's 90 per cent vote for rising 
City rents falling to 70 ner-cont. 
But in tbe West End. office rents 
continue to power ahead June’s 
75 per cent report of rising 
rental trends turned into ;< 95 
per cent nsina trend this time. 

One of tbe most dramatic irir 
creases in eonffdenqp in office 
rents covers properties in thi* 
rest of the Greater London 
Council area June's. US oer cent 
“rise" and R2 per cpiiI “static" 
poll becomes an Si! -per cent,

II per cent of the surveyors 
reporting a static uiarkeL 

An equally dramatic turn- 
round is reported in the West 
Midlands. In June. S2 per cent 
or the West Midland firms 

believed that office rents were 
static. .. Bv Ociober. half that 
number had changed their minds 
with a 44 per cent doH for risioa 

As letting demand, and hence 
rents., lies at the heart of the 
commercial property market, 
surveyors were asked in this poll 
to say whether they believed that 
current demand arises primarily 

from - reorganisation of existing 
businesses, or from genuine 
business expansioo. 

The source of letting demand 
is one of tbe key questions for 
tbe market at the moment. Is 

there really a mass of fieri t-up 
demand for commercial property 
that will take up the remaining 
slack in the market once indus- 
trial confidence returns? Or is 
tbe economic and political out- 
look ^till too cloudy for' space 
users to consider expansion? Tbe 
surveyors* answers suggest that 
there is now a reasonable 
balance between reorganisation 

and genuine expansion in recent 

In tbe retail market most 
agents throughout the country 
feel that new lettings are a 
result tJf genuine expansion. 

Genuine expansion is also *een 

as the prime force behind ware- lenioe de^and for rtfiMsT'Wiit l 

bouse lettings, although the fur-

THE THREAT of a national rail 
dispute worsened yesterday 
following rejection by ASLEF. 
the train drivers' union, of the 
recommendations on special pru- 
ductivity pay men ly made last 
week by an fodependern inquiry. 

Tiie unions executive ruried 
down ihe proposals of ihe Rail- 
way Staff National Tribunal for 
a sectional productivity payment 
solely for drivers ur British 
Rail’s High Speed Train. 

It had claimed a special pro- 
ductivity bonus for all drivers 
in relation tu what it believes 
to be improved productivity over 
Lhe past four years. The claim 
was suhmilied following special 
payments made tu train guards, 
whn are members of the National 
Union of Tiailwaymen. 

The drivers' union said yester- 
day that unless a satisfactory 
offer mi a special bonus was 
made by British Hail this month. 

the union would be in dispute 1 
with management. 

The union is seeking a meeting 
of the Railway Staff National ’ 
Council within the next week, j 
The executive w ill then discuss - 
the position again. British Rail ; 
said last Digiu it was trying to 
convene a meeting uf the j 
tribunal as soon a& possible.

the union said. However. Hit-;

The Computerform Club, established sonw 
thirteen years ago. is the product of disillusionment 
with tipsters and guesswork. 

Our racings are based on factual measurement 
rather than opinion and conjecture 

This way we narrow down the angles statistically, 
and tell you when to bet and when not to bet 

i hus we save you time and money and at the 
same time tell you when the odds are in your favour.

record on both fronts, throwing up as it does what 
we call 'Pure Double Too Rated' horses, and at the 
other end of the sc3le the many obvious .and not so 
obvious b3d bets. 

Our strength lies in quality and not just quantity 

And we take ourselves seriously 

We offer an exclusive membership for 
individuals who take us equally seriously on an 
ongoing basis.

rather to a planned and calculated programme or

For some years now M&G have been 
providing an investment management service for 
tiie pension funds of companies and public 
corporations, as well as charitable foundations. 

We are now extending this facility and 
taking on new clients for our Pension Fund 
Investment Service. Our independent status, 
wide contacts with stockbrokers and the very 
substantial volume of investments under M&G 
management place us in an ideal position to 
provide an investment service of this type. 

For a copy of our new booklet “The M&G 
Pension Fund Investment Service,” or to arrange 
an appointment to discuss the investment

When it comes to investing 
it pays to think about us. 

Did you know this is the sign of The 
Association of Investment Trust Companies? 
Did you know the 210 member companies 
control assets worth something like £6,500 • 
million? And did you know some were 
formed over 100 years ago, specifically to 
meet the needs of the private investor? 

Investment trusts have been combining 
prudence with profitability under shrewd 
and experienced management through 
booms as well as recessions, slumps, wars 
and international crises. Perhaps it's time 
you shared in some of the very special 
advantages they can offer: 

# gearing 

$ assets at a discount 
no dividend limitation 
s',: low-cost professional management 
:.i investment spread 

# capital gains tax concessions 
i'fi international opportunities

One of tbe world’s great insurance companies. 

>j 0 . 

of a pension scheme requires 
that is should be financially in- 
dependent of the parent com- 
pany in respect of benefits 
secured to date. This means that 
investment back into the com- 
pany sbould be severely restric- 
ted. Yet pensipn funds are great 
consumers of casb, especially in 
inflationary items. The casb ! 
flow position can be eased by 
dealings, on an arms' length 
basis, with the pension fund. 

If the company is prosperous, 
why should the employees be de- 
barred from sharing in that 
prosperity as members of the 
pension scheme. Indeed, the pen- 
sion scheme is an ideal vehicle 
for employees to have a stake in 
their company. 

If the company is in financial 
trouble, then the temptation 
to use pension fund money to 
bail it out is considerable. Arid 
the trustees are more likely to 
succumb if there are member 
representatives on the board. It 
is going to be very difficult for 
such people tu remain aloof and 
watch themselves and their 
colleagues lose their jobs for 
the want of action on their part 
Often it is likely to be a little 
help at ihe start that increases 
to vast proportions as the com- 
pany gets into more trouble. 

But recent revelations have 
shown how serious problems 
can be posed by investment 
back into the parent company. 
The Occupational Pensions 
Board has recommended that 
this should be limited to 10 per 
cent of tbe pension fund's

The concert by Contrapuncti 
on Wednesday was over-long 
and under-patronised: at least 
one of those things was due to 
i the inclusion of 14 little pieces 
i by Percy Grainger. Amiable.

slightly adventurous, they were 
j undertaken with due affection

(Manning 3nd Stephen Varcoe. to 
jwbom (mostly in tandem) the

instrumental pieces were song- 
' based too, whether arrangements

folksongs. The odder numbers

1. The Consolidated results at June 30. 1 973 were determined by 
the same methods used in previous yeais. Inventories are 
valued according to the ElFO Method and depreciation on 
plant, property and equipment is calculated according to the 
straight line method. Monetary item? in foreign currency 
(credits and debts) and inventories of foreign sunsidiaries are 
translated at the exchange rates in effect on June 30. 1973. 

2. Sales before taxes for first half, 197b totalled 23.349 million 
Francs, acainsi 27.570 million for the corresponding period of 
the previous year, a growth of 2 D o. Since in the first half of 1 978, 
the average dollar exchange rate depreciated by around b'lo 
against the French Franc compared to first helf. 1977, the 
higher consolidated sales figure is a result of an increase in 
tonnage sc-ld by the Group. This increase of course includes 
sales of gas from the North Sea Fields i'Frigg. ckofisl: and Witte 
Water) which came Into production during the second half- 
Of 1977. 

3. Cash flow amounted to 1.664 mlilicn Franc 6 : r.gainst 1.491 
million lor first half. 1377 and 2,873 million lor 1977 as a 
whole. Depreciation and provisions for the first half amounted 
to 1.355 million Francs in 197S ccnpared to 1.173 million for 
first half, 1 £77 and 2.613 million for 1 977 overall. Writedowns 
to depreciation by the North Sea subsidiaries following start up 
of the gas fields mentioned above mainly account far this 

4. Net income for the Group amounted to 309 million francs with 
CFP's share totalling 260 million Francs. 

5. Net capita! expenditure for first half, 1978 was at a level 
slightly lower than that of cash flow. 

6 . Thanks to the improved situation in The French Stock Marker, 
the holding company was successful in raising 58E million 
Francs through a new stock issue in September and October, 
which will allow the Group to improve its financial structure.

At a meeting of the Court of Directors held on 7th November, the unaudited" 
results for the six months ended 30th September, 1978 were considered. Based 
on historical accounting methods the Group profit before taxation shows, at 
£20.8 million, an increase of £0.4 million as compared with the corresponding 
half-year ended 30th September, 1977 and a decrease of £1 .6 million when 
compared with the half-year ended 31st March, 1978. The results include the 
profits of British Credit Trust Limited for a period of six weeks. 

The Court of Directors has decided to declare an interim dividend of 6.5p 
per £1 unit of Capita! Stock as enlarged by the issue of £3.4 million in May in 
respect of the acquisition of British CredrtTrust Limited and also by £3.3 million 
on the conversion of Loan Stock. The interim dividend will be paid on or after 
the 18th December, 1978 to stockholders whose names appear on the register 
at close of business on 14th November, 1978. 

Trading during the half-year showed some material differences from past 
patterns . The unexpectedly large demand for credit was not accompanied by a 
corresponding growth in resources and necessitated recourse to rediscounting 
facilities at The Central Bank. The arrangements for an increase in staff 
remuneration in a single amount early in the year rather than by phased 
increases during the year as occurred previously, meant that staff costs rose 
more, in relative terms, in the first half-year than they will in the second 

For these reasons the pattern of half-yearly profit is changed and the results 
for the second half-year are expected, by comparison, to show a considerable 
improvement. But until the precise outcome of current discussions amongst 
governments regarding the proposed European monetary system is known, it is 
not possible to foresee fully what new implications there may be for commercial 
banking operations and earnings in the remainder of the accounting year. 

However it is the present view of the Court that results for the year as a 
whole will justify the payment of a final dividend at a rate at least equal to that 
paid last year.

from two discontinued operations 
of Wood Hall Lid. Australia. 

Turnover was down at £401. 52m

as to whether or not any material 
provisions arc required aga>nst 
the debts owing by and value of 
investments in Stronghold 
{Nigeria) (40 , per cent-owned), 
totalling £2. 63m. 

This is necessitated in that 
there has been a substantial 
delay in the settlement of trade 
bills. Through unilateral action 
taken by the controlling (60 per 
cent! Nigerian shareholder at end 
June, 1978 the group ceased to 
have any significant influence 
over the policies or management 
of Stronghold, which thereby 
ceased to be an associate. 

Although the directors cannot 
be assured as to the time of 
settlement of the outstanding 
debt or the possibility of 
remittance of dividend, they do 
not consider that provision 
against the outstanding debt or 
investment would be .appropriate. 

Also, the auditors make a quali- 
fication. similar to the two 
previous years, and following that 
made in the reports upon the I 
accounts of Wood Hall Limited. 

They state that until the issues 
involved in the claims and cross- 
claims made by and against Wood

pleted pipeline contract have been 
resolved, by litigation (pending) 
or negotiation, it is not possible

Sime Darby: Turquand speaks out 

--w-* \j£p 

1 A 

Bank, cplreiand. 


REMARKS MADE by Sime Darby 
Holdings last week were "highly 
derammatory." Turquand .Youngs 
and Co. said yesterday, but they 
will not sue Sime at least until 
attcr the group's AGM on 
November 17. 

"We are trying to reduce the 
temperature," said Mr. Dennis 
Garrett, senior partner of Tur- 
quand Barton Mayhew and Co., 
yesterday. He said that he 
wanted to bring back attention 
to the issue of whether Turquand 
will or will not be reappointed as 

Mr, Garrett would not Say 
whether his firm might issue a 
writ once the AGM was over. ‘‘If 
I said yes, then I might . be 
accused of threatening, and if I 
said no. I might be accused of 
running away.'* he said. 

In the course of an acrimonious 
row between Sim® add the 
auditors the hoard wants to sack, 
Sime asserted last M Wk it had a 
prlma facie ca>e against Turduand 
for negligence and bread* of 

stautory duty with regard to the 
audit of the 1972 and possibly 
earlier accounts. 

Mr- Garrett yesterday denied 
that Turquand had been negligent. 
He said he did not know on what 
the allegation was based. He re- 
jected Sime's assertion that 
Turquand had been slow to un- 
cover the misdemeanours or Mr. 
Dennis Pinder, a previous chair- 
man of Sime. 

Mr. Garrett said that the Singa- 
pore Society of Accountants was 
investigating certain aspects of 
Turquand's audit of a Singapore 
subsidiary. But this investigation 
was now limited to one partner 
of the firm, three .specific pay- 
ments and the question Df 
whether the accounts of that sub- 
sidiary should have been qualified 
In 1970. 1971 and 1972. 

Turquand said that the 
procedures of ihe Society are 
designed to avoid issues being 
pre-judsed, “yet the Slmo Darby 
chairman has suggested that this 
revelation should affect share- 
holders' confidence in TurquancL’* 

Turquand is now proposing that 
a committee of five shareholders 
of Sime should be appointed by 
the President of the Malaysian- 
Law Society to recommend which 
auditors should be appointed. In 
an open letter to the chairman 
Turquand says this would enable 
the main question “to be isolated 
■from the peripheral issues which 
have arisen between us.” . 

This proposal -would involve 
adjourning the AGM at the point 
where the auditor quesUon is due 
to be resolved. The committee 
would be allowed to examine 
Turquand's • files. “Turqaunds 
would expect the company to 
make its files on the same matters 
similarly- available.” 

Turquand also suggested that 
the Board should appoint an 
audit' committee erf nou-executh-e 
directors which would dial with 
the .auditors on matters of 
principle, an increasingly common 

Sime Darby was yesterday 
considering Turquand’s letter.

? Choica aflherc&andisa was influenced by the problems f had experienced in fitting my 
own kitchen OngettinB married. There was simply no one specialising in Iqtchen fumttuia-and 

■ 1 felt this presented artopportunity of which! could take advantage. At th'istime.the only people 

who would supply me 'were the small non-bran ded jobbing manufacturers to whom I was 
supplying plastic 'shea ting»The business made e successful start and very short ly 1 was forced 
id look for larger premises. This move took mo to a shop in Saltord which, once again, the 
business quickly outgrew. My next move was to a larger shop in the centre of Manchester. The 
fifst major move, and probably toe-most significantrtook place in 1969 when l moved into 
1 5, 000 . ft. m» ' hi --storey premises in - Rochdale Road, Manchester. Until this time l had 
continued my job with die plastics company* whilst employing full-time staff in my own bus- 
irfe«L ; yWtii this move I decided to enter the business full time and Kitchen Queen Limited was 
fdrn»tfc;. '\ ."v ■ • ' . - 

■: 7- During this period it was virtually impossible to see displays of fully ftaeo kitchens and to ■■ 
compare toe products of different mariufacturerssideby side. With the setting up of the Roch- 
dale Road store we installed our first five kitchen displays. This in itself was no easy matter as at 
the tfmqttone of them a jo r manufacturers would supply us. Plumbers and builders merchants 
.had a virtual monopoly over-toe retail kitchen business and certainly there wre no kitchen 
■specialists on the scale’ we envisaged. W8 also believed that it was not enough m itself to offer 
dispfeVs. -We considered that customers should be offered a complete drajan, fanning and

company. .

In early -1975, due to the collapse of the Stock Marker and adverse economic conditions, 
the Board of Cranleigh decided to close down their investment division and concentrate upon 
their manufacturing interests. With my confidence in the record and future of the company, I took 
this opportunity of re-acquiring these shares at the price of £350,000 sought by Cranleigh. 

In March1974 we opened a second store, when we acquired a large retail unit in Coventry 
city centre with a sales area of 18,900 sq. ft. which today trades as Upstairs and Downstairs. 
This was established on similar lines to Kitchen Queen in Manchester, following the same 

lo May 1976 Industrial and Commercial Finance Corporation Limited (ICFC) and its ass- 
ociated company Estate Duties Investment Trust Limited i EDITH) together acquired 10.73 
per cent, of the share capital of Kitchen Queen Limited from my wife at a price of £300,000. 

Earlier this year we acquired a business called Tne Room Set Limited, trading from a 
33,000 sq. fL store next to Yorkshire Television Studios in Leeds. We changed the name to 
Kitchen Queen and introduced the proven Kitchen Queen retailing formula. The store was 
relaunched in September backed by heavy advertising, both in the press and on television. 

Each of the three main outlets in Manchester, Leeds and Coventry contains the ranges of 
most major U.K. and the top EEC kitchen furniture manufacturers, and our own Di Lusso 
kitchens. In our Manchester store, for example, we currently have on display 55 fitted and 28 
self-assembly kitchen settings, and over 25 displays of fitted and self-assembly bedroom 
furniture. Personal loan facilities are available for customers at all stares by arrangement with 
leading finance houses. 

The Manchester store also has an extensive DIY - department covering many of the needs 
of the home handyman. 

A further venture has been a move into small shop units in town centres, selling mainly 
Di Lusso products. The trading name is Kitchens Today and the first unit opened in Hanley in 
April of this year. The shop has about 20 Di Lusso kitchen displays, a Di Lusso bedroom display, 
a range of bedroom chests, and wall and sink units. Early trading results are encouraging and 
as a result of this we are now active in our search for additional sites. 

History and Business of Di Lusso 

I think it imponant to explain why it was decided to acquire a 50 per cent, interest in 
Scale and Da Blasio Limited in August 1 973.The management at Kitchen Queen were constantly 
studying the retail market both in this country and the U.SA, watching trends and develop- 
ments. It came to toe conclusion that the largest potential growth area in Great Britain was in 
DIY retailing. This was going to result in a very real need for merchandise which could be 
supplied in quantity, and in a wide range of qualities. Thus it seemed to us that self-assembly 
furniture was toe ideal vehicle' through which we could move into the DIY sector as a supplier. 

In September, 1 974 .a further25.1 per cent, of Scala and De Blasio Limited was acquired 
and m 1 975 tts name was changed to Di Lusso Kitchens Limited. In May 1 975 Di Lusso became 
a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kitchen Queen Limited. 

Following the acquisition of Di Lusso, we immediately moved tire business from small 
back-street premises into a 1 70,000 sq. fr. factory just ouiside Oldham. We purchased modem 
machinery and were thus able to cope with the increasing demand for Di Lusso self-assembly 
kitchens ’which subsequently took place. The growth in the market for self-assembly kitchens 
resulted in very lanje s&les through The DJY outlets. We were helped in this by our own experience 
in the retail business, and a very effective network of distributors which was quickly set up 
across the country and equipped to handle Di Lusso furniture.

The factor,' was soon in full production with our customer taking as many kitchen units 
a? we could produce. So great was the demand that for a period we were forced to have furniture 
made bv sub-contraciors to help us meet orders. Eventually, in July 1 976. we bought a second 
lector,' just outside Rochdale with a further 210.000 sq. ft. and substantially increased the 
production capacity. 

There has now been a slight change of emphasis as far as distribution is concerned. 
Whereas initially we were selling solely through distributors, Di Lusso is now also supplying a 
number of major retailers directly. 

To assist in delivery to such retailers, for whom delivery times are vital, we have now 
acquired a modem warehouse at Harwich (adjacent to the M61) of 170,000 sq. ft. This 
additional warehousing for finished goods will allow Oi Lusso to maintain even levels of 
production throughout the year and thus to expand its overall capacity by using these stocks to 
supplement supplies at peak periods of demand. 

The U.K. market for DIY products has been expanding rapidly for a number of. years. Wo 
are consequently manufacturing goods with the specific needs of DIY customers in mind. Di 
Lusso produces several ranges of self-assembly furniture which between them cover the whole 
spectrum of the market, from the basic self-assembly kitchens to the highesr quality furniture. 
The range is continually being increased, both by the addition of new lines and by the extension 
of existing lines. 

Di Lusso displays can now be seen in some eleven hundred outlets throughout the U.K. 
all planned and installed with the help of our strong technical planning and sales team. 

in the past twelve months we foive also exported goods to Scandinavia and the Middle 


Di Lusso enjoys very good working relationships with its principal suppliers. It has 
sufficient warehouse cspacity to ’enable it to buy in quantity and stockpile raw materials, thus 
obtaining the advantages of bulk purchase and ensuring a continuity of supply. 

In ihe year ended 31st August, 1978 one leading manufacturer will have supplied 
appro xi marely 25 per cent, of Di Lusso's raw material purchases. Nevertheless, there are a large 
number of alternative sources of supply open toir. 

Di Lusso products are sold by Kitchen Queen in Its retail outlets and, in the year ended 
31st August, 1978, this accounted for approximately 9 per cent, of total sales of Di Lusso; 
Di Lusso in turn accounted for approximately 23 per cent, of Kitchen Queen’s sales. 

We advertise Di Lusso kitchens through the national dailies, home interest magazines and 
colour supplements. We also occasionally advertise on television. In addition, we make large 
advertising allocations to major customers to bs expended in joint advertising in which our 
products are prominently featured.

Details of the premises occupied by the Group are given in the Schedule below. 

Profit Record 

The Group has grown substantially in the five years ended 31st August, 1973 in terms of 
sales and profitability. During this period, turnover of the Group has increased from a twelve 
month equivalent of £2.2 million (after adjusting the figures for the sixteen months ended 31st 
August. 1 974) to £15.1 million, and on the same basis, profit before taxation from £270,000 
to £1.46 million. 

The growth in profits was temporarily interrupted in the year to 31 st August, 1 977 when in 
common with the whole of the economy, and the furniture trade in particular, the Group 
experienced a sudden and substantial fall in demand. The effect of this downturn was. minimised 
by the operation of the two sides of The Group to their mutual advantage. Dr Lusso quickly 
introduced lines to suit the lower end of the market and sales of -these through Kitchen Queen 
were substantial. Thus, although overall profit margins were reduced, turnover of both Di Lusso 
and Kitchen Queen was actually increased in this period, placing both in a prominent market 
position. This enabled a rapid return to increased profitability with the revival of the economy, 
as shown by the results for the year ended 31st August, 1978 and the forecast-for the current 
year. We envisage that the Kitchens Today operation, selling predominantly Di Lusso products, 
will emphasise the reciprocal advantages of manufacturing and retailing. 

Current Year 

On the bases and assumptions set out in Statutory and General Information, thd Directors 
forecast that, in the absence of unforeseen circumstances, the turnover and profit of the Group, 
before taxation and extraordinary items, for the year ending 31st August, 1979 will be not less 
than £1 9.7 million and £1 .8 million respectively. 

Dividends and Yields 

On the basis of the above forecast of Group profit it would be the Directors' intention to 
recommend for payment in July, 1979 a net interim dividend of 0.536p per share and in 
February, 1980 a net final dividend of 0.804p per share (a total of 2p inclusive of related tax 
credit atlhe rate of 33 pe> cent.). 

For a fuli year throughout which the Company’s shares were listed and in which a simitar 
level of profit were to be earned, the Directors would expect to recommend dividends totalling 
1.675p net per share (2.5p with the related tax credit at the rate of 33 percent). Undercurrent 
legislation, the Company would not be subject to any governmental dividend restrictions in 
respect of the two years ending 31 st August. 1 980. 

The following table iiiusti a tes the appropriation of profits on this basis assuming 

(i) Corporation tax at the standard rate of 52 per cent, and (in the alternative) the 
expected rate of 1 2 per cent, {taking account of the availability of stock appreciation 
relief and accelerated capital allowances) ; 
total net dividends in a full year of 1 .67 5p per share ; and 
an issued share capital of 25,044,0 00 Ordinary Shares.

Earnings per share 
Coverfor ordinary dividend

On the basis of the estimated tax charge oF12 percent, resulting in earnings per share of 
6.?p and at the offer price of 29p, the Ordinary Shares of the Company are being offered for sale 
on a price earnings multiple of 4.6. Applying a theoretical tax charge of 52 per cent., the 
earnings per share would be 3.4p and the . price earnings multiple 8.4. Based on the forecast 
dividend, the gross dividend yield in a full year would be 8.6 per cent 


We look forward to the future with confidence. On the retailing side, the implementation 
of the Kitchen Queen techniques at the new store in Leeds should ensure that this storte makes 
An increasing contribution to both turnover and profits of the Group. In view of the success 
of the Kitchens Today operation at Hanley, wehave severalfurtherunits planned andare looking at 
‘additional sites for this operation. In general, we will appraise opportunities for opening further 
large retail outlets as and when such opportunities arise. Overall, the above fields provide a base 
for substantial growth in the future. 

On the manufacturing side, Di Lusso has substantially increased manufacturing capacity 
enabling it to offer new and extended ranges of kitchen furniture, thus broadening its trading 
base. Additionally it is now both expanding its production of bedroom furniture and commenc- 
ing production of occasional furniture for home assembly, including furniture for audio equip- 
ment. A substantial increase in sales is anticipated from the production of own-brand name 
kitchens for large retailers whom Di Lusso are now supplying. Additionally, we see expansion 
in the export field, and to thi3 end have set up a separate export department. Its initial activity 
has been centred in Scandinavia and contacts are also being made in the Middle East. As with 
retailing,- we believe that the above will ensure a continued substantial grovyth in the turnover 
and profits of this division. 

In conclusion, we feel that our growth record shows our ability to anticipate arid provide 
for demand and to create new markets for our products. We feel confident that our flexibility will 
ensure that this growth will continue. 

. Yours faithfully,

,j. .major new competitor into this

s ance such as ear insurance and

One of the factors behind this 
trend, which will be offset in part 
by buoyant investment income, is 
the rapid inflation of claims costs. 
Mr. Boe said that in an effort to 
offset the trend. Allstate would 
be pressing for increases in 
insurance premiums. • 

Mr. Boe said that the company 
anticipated, under the wage and

A sudden chill isi the air 


ON TUESDAY aa air of inno- 
cent bewilderment could be en- 
countered in General Motors a l 
the stock market's reaction to 
the news i'nar the largest U.S. 
corporation was cutting its divi- 
dend payment for 1978. While 
GM officials were claiming that 
they were merely exercising the 
prudent cam inn fop which they 
are famed, investors io particu- 
lar and ihe -Af-rld in genera! 
were behaving as though GM 
had suddenly brought the out- 
look into focus and ihe picture 
was nor a preity one. 

As by far the largest producer 
of consumer durables, ir has be- 
come a cliche io say that the. 
auto inthislfy i? America's eco- 
nomic barometer. While there 
may have been some over- 
reactiou Jo the stock market's 
14.81 plunge which followed 
GM : s announcement, it could be 
said that. if the GM announce- 
ment did not portent doomsday 
for the compan;. and the U.S. 
economy, then investors at least 
deserved a somewhat fuller ex- 
planation than they were given. 

! The" company did after all earn 
511.62 per share last year and 
pay our S6.8Q to shareholders, 
and there is no evidence th3t GM 
has made any effort to counter 
expectations that anticipated pro- 
fits of 512 a share this year would 
be accompanied rr- a similar pay- 
out. Instead the end year divi- 
dend was reduced from $3.25 to 
52.50. leaving the total payout 
for the year at For a com- 
pany with sales of S61on and 
cash assets of around 54.7bn. ibe 
saving of S22S.5m is somewhat 

The question baffling "Wall 
Steer, therefore, is what, does 
GM's extremp parsimony tell us 
about the company and the out- 
look for the auto industry? In 
particular, if .GM feels there is 


sufficient uncertainty ahead in 
justify such prudence, thee what 
may lie in -store for iis smaller 
and weaker brethren at Ford and 
Chrysler? The duo at the tup 
oF CM. Mr. Thomas Murphy, the 
chairman, and Mr. Elliott Estes, 
the president, attributed the 
reduced dividend to the need to 
maintain a strong capital petition 
to meet capital expenditures 

fitting of die«r*{ engines in cars. 

3— ^We have to negotiate a new 
three .'ear en.nract with ib<? 
United Auto Workers next year 
and notwithstanding the anti- 
inflation programme, we could 
be the target company for a 

GM is now virtually alone in 
believing that nt*yt year’s car and 
Truck sale^ will climb from 

General Motors* decision to cut its dividend gave Wall Street 
a severe shock. The question now is to what extent the move 
reflects a change in this year's prospects, not only for G3I but 
also for some of its smaller competitors 

which win rise from S4.5bn this 
year to more than $5bn next 

year. Del ph really. they went on 

to stress that the “corporation's 
progress will be importantly in- 
fluenced by the degree to which 
conditions (including progress in 
the area of reducing inflation) a 
more rational regulatory environ- 
ment and a constructive resolu- 
tion of the upcoming labour nego- 
tiations in 1979 are achieved.'* 
In translation, this could mean: 

1 — With short term ‘interest 
rates rising and a Government 
anti-inflation programme whose 
chances of success are at best 
modest, we cannot be sure that 
there will be sufficient economic 
growth next year to fulfil our 
expectation that 1P79 model year 
sales will be even better than 

2 — Government regulation in 
Lbe form of mandatory fuel 
standards is already responsible 
Tor the bulk of our enormous 
capital spending needs and the 
Government could yet add to the 
burden by imposing difficult 
standards for trucks and by out- 
lawing on pollution grounds the 

15.2m units thi* year to 15.5m 
□ext. The company says that 
recent interest rite developments 
have not changed its mind. But 
if its optimism is proved false 
then dearly j;$ balance sheet 
will come under considerable 
pressure. Most of nest, year's S5bn 
capital expenditure is scheduled 
to come out of internal funds and 
depreciation and tooling amorti- 
sation is expected to climb from 
S2.95bn this year to S3.55bn next. 
With ibis burden, profit margins 
at a lower point than at any time 
for 20 years. Government re- 
straint on full recovery of costs 
through price increases and with 
1979 earnings perhaps no higher 
than SS per share, then GM’s 
prudent pruning of its dividend 
may in 12 months' time, earn it 
some plaudits. 

But if GM is raking precau- 
tions against a possible chill, 
then how can Ford and Chrysler 
be saved from pneumonia? 

Since third-quarter earnings 
figures are alwaj - misleading be- 
cause of plant --hutdowns and 
model chan geo vers, then not too 
much should be made of weak- 
nesses at both companies which 

have recently been made public. 
However, at Ford there do 
appear to be al least two causes 
for concern. The S93m slump in 
Ford's profits from ils North 
American operations served to 
underline its extreme depen- 
dence on its overseas activities 
which accounted for $266m of 
third-quarter net income. 

Analysts are now agreed that 
Ford is losing money on its 
American car production, but 
operations are kept profitable by 
itis truck sales. Ford is currently 
losing passenger car market 
share lo General Motors, for 
reasons which appear lo defy 
explanation, and if this were to 
continue at The same time as the 
domestic U.S. market turned 
down, then its ability to finance 
capital expenditures of $3.5bn 
next year would be strained. 

A funher pressure on the com- 
pany's earnings looks likely to 
be Ford's struggle to meet the 
final economy requirement Df a 
fleet average of 19 mpg for the 
197R model year. The company 
is selling its controversial Pinto 
small car at a loss m order to 
meet the fleet average and may 
be losing some sales by its 
inability to provide VS engine? 
on request in some cars and 
pick-ups. Net income for the 
fourth quarier will be reduced 
by more than SIQm for each 
week that the strike at its British 
plants lasts. 

Finally. Chrysler'^ troubles are 
unlikely ro ease much next year, 
despite the arrival of Mr. Lee 
lacncca as president. The com- 
pany i$ betting on a new line of 
full-steed cars to boost its market 
snare of domestically produced 
cars from 12.6 per cent to 15 
per. cent next year, but losses 
this year will exceed $250m snd 
may approach SISOm next year. 

Dollar sector recovers after early setback 


ALTHOUGH THE dollar firmed 
yesterday and dollar interest 
rates eased slightly, prices in the 
dollar sector of the international 
bond market continued to move 
sharply in erne direction and 
another as dealers tried to find 
a new level at which client 
business could be attracted back. 

Prices fell at the start of trad- 
ing by as much as three quarters 
of 3 point across the board but 

later recovered only to ease at 
the close. Prices of many issues 
finished the day at the same 
levels as Wednesday night. “Lt 
is becoming a game of blind 
man’s buff." sighed one dealer 
who added that the .past ten 
days trading had been among 
the most difficult he had ever 

The DM sector also refleciwi 
the uncertainty prevailing in the 

dollar sector and prices ended 
the day on a soft note. Selling 
pressure from abroad, a 
prominent factor on Wednesday, 
eased yesterday but the fear of 
increased interest rates remains. 
Other factors worrying investors 
are 'the wide yield gap between 
dollar and DM denominated 
bonds especially if the dollar 
Shows signs of picking up 
further and the possible issue of 

up to SlObn worth of U.S. 
foreign currency bonds. 

in the sterling sector prices 
fell in the wake one of the 
highest rises in the bank rate in 
60 years. MLR now stands at 
12t per cent but the fall in 
prices in this sector is as much' 
a reflection of the thin second- 
ary market as of the rise in 
i merest rales.

West German 

outlook , 

By Our F nan dal Staff 

A SLOWER rate of growth for 
premium income was forecast 
yesterday for insurance com- 
panies in West Germany in a 
guardedly gloomy report Trom 
the insurance Industry associa- 
tion. the GDV. 

Premium income of most com- 
panies is expected io rise 9 per 
cent this year to around DM 61 bn 
(532.5bo) after in Increase of 
10.3 per cent to DM 55.9bn in 
1977. Stating this at its annual 
meeting, toe association said poor 
business in damage and loss 
insurance coupled with cost prob 
lems would contrast with gains 
registered in motor. Ijfe. private 
health and general accident 

The association represents 95 
per cent ofthe domestic insurance 
market in Germany and includes 
German subsidiaries of UK. Swiss 
and Austrian companies. 

Earnings from non -actuarial 
business this year would "have 
to cover actnarinl losses to a 
greater degree in 197S than in 
previous years." Profits of 
indemniry insurance firms in 
particular would arise chiefly 
from hi-;her capital asset earr- 
ings; This sector has been the 
most affected by Industry's reluc 
tance to invest, continued high 
unemployment, and from rising 
prices and costs. Capital assets 
held by German insurers would 
probably reach around DM 230bn 
bv toe end of 1&7S. compared 
with DM l '03 lhn a year earlier.

Copies of the Annual Rroort at 31st Auf/ust. 1978 and an C‘p!ana;nry hroi.lct 
aie available from the Company 




The following arc excerpts taken from ihe circulated State- 
ment of the Chairman and Managing Director Mr. 5. Hadyley- 
Chaplin. FCIS. fur the year iu 31st March 197S. 

Profit before taxation amounted to -onu* CSSfi.nOil i fr,5|.0iini. 
This excellent result has again enabb-d your Direcini-s lo 
recommend the same distribution as ihe previous year, i.c., 
3.5p per stock unit. 

The rubher crop fnr rhe fiiM Svp months ra the 31 ct Aueusi is 
about up on the previous period. The overate price to 
date is just as eoud. but. of course, wish a furlhni 306 acres 
being cut out for replanting ii does seem tikel.v that rubber 
crops will fall in the second half of the year. I think therefore 
I can do no better than almost repeat the words cT my pre- 
decessor and that ii that if the curreni '•xceUer.i price for 
rubher continues until next March, we should again haw a 
very successful year’s tradiny. Perhaps I should add that the 
tendency for the profits to full back will naturally occur for 
one .or two years until the first area replanted with oil palms 
comes into production. 

A new road in connect Kepafa Balas in Tasck Ulut-nr might he 
constructed along Bertatn's main estate road. In view of this 
and. the. continuing development of part of the esta e into Oil 
Palin s t he revaluation of Berlam has been posiponed until the 
position regarding the possible acquisitions has been clarified.

“My secretary is blind. 
Iti be lost without her” 

Sandy takes down her boss's dictation 
accurately, then types it out from her braille 
Shorthand. Good speeds, good page layout 
Sandy says there's nothing special about 
that - and she’s righL The fact that she's blind 
makes very little difference to her efficiency. 

Sandy got her job on ability. And her 
ability won her promotion to personal secretary 
in an important Post Office department That's 
the point. The RNIB trained Sandy at its 
Commercial College, and any firm that 
employs a qualified blind person will benefit 
from the demanding and professional training 
that we at the RNIB provide. 

If you happen to be an employee think it 
over. We ll be pleased to hear from you. 

Over and above that, the RNIB needs 
your help, through legacies and donations, to 
enable us to train others like Sandy.

The best of West 
German farming 


Bigger U.S. 
maize crop 


IT IS commonplace that visiting 
journalists are only shown the 
best of any country. So the farms 
i visited this week around Bonn 
were undoubtedly first class of 
their kind. 

Nevertheless the rest of the 

country through which I was 
driven was well farmed and the 
■stock to be seen, mainly dairy 
cows, were up jo the standard 
of the very successful dairy 
farm visited. 

Thi- was in the- hilly area in 
lbe outskirts o; Cologne, and 
belonged :o u funner who had 
escaped from occupied Silesia 
with his family and crossed into 
Germany with nu more lhan he 
and his family could carry in a 
suitcase in 1954. 

Herr Ebcri had started with 
25 acres and six cows, on a farm 
which consisted largely of wood- 
land. with the help of a loan of 
DM5.000 from a benevolent 
Swedish priest, ana seme help 
from the Covemnipm in the 
resettlement of refugees. 

From thcD on he and his son 
have buill up a herd of 70 cows 
and iheir followers, and a total 
acreage of 100 acres of which 
nearly 20 are woodland- The 
land was all purchased or rented 
in small lots from farmers who 
were Homs out of business and 
be told us’lhat he was still look- 
ins! for more land. 

Grass is (he only possible crop 
in the lush uinfall i*r about 
50 inches a year, and the fields 
an- sc -mall and broken up hv 
woods and tht* remains of tnh:-r 
farmsteads whose owners now 
work in town, that grHTi.ig 
in. fty semen! must be d'fHcnli 

The aim 1 hi > year is to raise 
numbers u* 90 head in milk which, 
with the young stock, will bring 
the total herd up lo at least 150. 

To accommodate them be has 
bulk a new 90- cow cubicle uDit 
complete with rotary parlour at 
a cosi uf DM240.000 (£66.000 or 
£700 u headi. 

In view of the general level 
of German cast* ibis does not 
look excessive but Herr Ebert 
stated that much of the work was 
done by himself and a part-time 

To augment supplies or bulk 
feed, he buys 25 acres of maize 
for silage from a farm 25 kiln- 
metres away which costs him 
about £250 an acre delivered. 
Compound feed costs him £236 
a year. His yields average about 
1.000 -gallons a cow. 

The milk price amounts to 
76p a gallon exclusive of pur- 
chase lax. The margin on milk 
has paid for the steady expansion 
of the holding so that there are 
now two bouses as well as an 
old and new set or buildings. 


Herr Ebert’s Farm is a good 
example of how the gradual 
exodus 0! farmers from milk 
production as their farms become 
too small to be viable, arc being 
replaced by larger units with 
increasing production. 

No land in the area seemed to 
he wasted, but there was 
obviously a great deal of subur- 
ban development among which 
iie was thriving. 

The other farm that I wsiled 
was at Euski rehen just outside 
Bonn on a good loam soil on 
lop 0/ gravel. Extending to just 
under 700 acres of arable land, 
it »s farmed »n a very orthodox 
rotation hased on sugar beet, 
wheat, winter barley, peas and 

beans. Yields were good with 
an average of 17 lonncs of sugar 
beet an acre without irrigation 
ami more than two tonnes of 
whf-ai and winter barley. 

Although the area has a low 
rainfall, just over 2D in. at 
harvest time it is often ouitc wet 
It i; well mechanised with three 
Jar-ie iraHnr* and two smaller 
ones besides a comhine and

U.S. raises steel import 
trigger prices by 7% 



on EEC 


BRUSSELS, Nov. 9. 

THE EEC Commission will not 
proceed against Europe's dozen 
leading man-made fibre pro- 
ducers for operating an illegal 
cartel. The producers have, how- 
ever, been refused permission 
to take the market-sharing steps 
they .claim be needed to avoid a 
damaging price war. 

In an uneasy compromise that 
has postponed but not defused 
the conflict over the synthetic 
fibre producers' “crisis cartel,” 
the 13-member Commission 
decided that the pact signed by 
the producers last June could 
not be permitted. The Commis- 
sion said it should be amended. 

The changes required by the 
Commission are likely to be the 
subject of further strong oppo- 
sition . from the producers and 
some : of their Governments. 
Executives in Brussels are 
relieved-' that the Commission 
has accepted, the principle of a 
cartel and thus headed off an 
open clash between itself and 
the industry. 

Before this week's examina- 
tion of tbe cartel by the Com- 
mission, the synthetic fibres pro- 
ducers had threatened, to defy 
the Commission if it failed to 
find a formula permitting their 
three-year internal market agree- 

In the coming week, the Com- 
mission starts fresh talks with 
the producers on a modified 
cartel. . 

Tbe industry still suggests that 
it may ignore the Commission's 
authority if the hard-pressed 
Italian industry' is prevented 
from having a greater share of 
a redistributed market.

The building, a hollow monu-

Harry Hyams' Oldham Estates

threatened with compulsory

with conversion into flats, and 

Il has also heen invaded by
