BY XENNETH GOODING. MOTOR INDUSTRY CORRESPONDENT 


BL. formerly British Leylaud. 
told the., unions yesterday it 
wants to close the Ley land 
Vehicles factory at Southall, 
London, at a cost of 2.500 jobs. 

The’ company said last night 
that tbe plant, built in the mid- 
1930s hy AEC, now a subsidiary 
of Leyland Vehicles, could never 
be made viable because fixed 
overheads were too high. 

Assembly of the big Marathon 
trucks will be moved to Leyland, 
Lancashire, and manufacture of 
L12 and TL12 engines for heavy 
vehicles will be switched to the 
ScammeJI factory at Watford. 
Hertfordshire. 

The immediate reaction of 
trade unionists was total opposi- 
tion. according to Mr. Roger 
Butler, district secretary of fhe 


Amalgamated Union of Engineer- 
ing Workers, the biggest union 
at the plant. 

He said: “We are calling for 
Government intervention. It is 
not just jobs at the plant which 
are at stake. Those of thousands 
who live off the factory In shops, 
transport and as sub-contractors 
are also affected because AEC is 
the biggest employer. The whole 
town will be affected." 

A mass meeting of AEC 
workers has been called for 
Friday to discuss a campaign of 
resistance to the closure. 

However, it is certain that a 
decision of this size would 
already have hcen discussed by 
the BL Board and the National 
Enterprise Board. There is also 
every sign that the Government 


is willing t" back Mr. Michael 
Edward&s. BL chairman, in his 
efforts lo improve the group's 
performance. 

In the first half of the current 
year, Leyland Vehicles just about 
broke even on tractor, truck and 
engine production, compared 
with a £2lm taxable profit in the 
same period of 1977. The divi- 
sion will make a substantial loss 
for the year as a whole. 

Discussions with the unions 
about a major rationalisation 
programme for heavy trucks 
operations have been going on 
for some time. It could involve 
a further 1.000 redundancies in

Y ^nlike any other banking institution in the world, 
vL^'the Merrill Lynch Intemationai Banking- Group 
offers commercial and investment banking services in all 
the international capital markets outside the U.S., plus 
direct access to long-term capital in the U.S. 

This unique intemationai banking capability, coupled 
with Merrill Lynch’s worldwide securities distribution 
and trading power, was no doubt decisive in helping the 
Group achieve its solid record of growth in 1977. 

International public issues: $2.8 billion 
International public issues managed or co-managed by 
Merrill Lynch amounted to $2.8 billion in 1977 versus 
$2.2 biilion in 1976, an increase of 25%. 

The total financing Merrill Lynch helped arrange for 
corporate or governmental clients in the U.S., Canada 
snd worldwide amounted to over $30 billion in 1977. 

Syndicated bank loans: $13 billion 
Supported by a substantial increase in capital resources 
devoted to banking, we managed or co-managed $L3 


billion in syndicated bank loans during 1977, a notable 
increase over the $140 million of managerships in 1976. 
Commercial loans to corporate and governmental 
clients grew from $63 million in 1976 to $204 million at 
year-end 1977.

Eurodollar securidestrading: $3.25 billion 

In 1977, Merrill Lynch’s International Banking Group 
trading volume in the Eurobond secondary markets was 
62% greater than 1976. ; 

Mergers and acquisitions 
The Group’s contacts make it an important source of 
merger and acquisition candidates around the globe. 
Merrill Lynch assisted in 47 projects involving mergers, 
acquisitions, divestitures^ tender offers in 1977.

AN : INTERNATIONAL miners 1 , 
safety conference -at the Polish 
coal mining centre cf Katowice 
next week- now looks Hke becom- 
ing - a major test case of the 
British National Union of Mine- 
workers’ CNUMJ readiness to 
honour a TUC comamitraent to 
support free trade unions “ any- 
where in the world " and to con- 
demn psychiatric abuses. The 
commitment was • made at the. 
TUC Congress in Brighton in 
September. 

— The point at Issue concern s.tbe 
fate of Mr. Vladimir Klebanov; a 
former coal miner, add other 
members of- the so-called “Asso- 
ciation of Free Trade Unions” 
formed eaxlaeT this year in pro- 
test a^aanst the 'alleged, inability 
or □nwilHogness of the' official 

■ Soviet unions to safeguard the 
legitimate rights of their mem.- 

■ here. 

Mr. Joe Gormley, leader of the 
eight -man delegation from the 
National Union of Muieworkers, 
goes to Katowice committed to 
raise the matter “informally” 
with his Soviet counterpart, Mr. 
Yevgeny Yefremenko. But a 
minority in his own executive, 
and Amnesty. International arc 
pressing for a march more, deter- 
mined effort: to investigate- both 
the psychiatric state, of '. Mr. 
Klebanov and others -and the 
situation behind the fonnation of 
•• free trade unions ” du toe -Soviet 
Union.. ’ . 

Throughout Eastern. Europe, 
including the Soviet Union,, an 
effort is being made to raise 'pro- 
duction of coal and lignite. Mach: 


Klebanov 


of the effort is going into the 
exploitation .of vast open-cast 
coal and lignite deposits like 
Belchatow . in Poland and 
Ekiba&uz and Kansk-Achinsk In 
the Soviet Union. Poland, 
Romania and ^the Soviet Union 
are buflding- many new deep 
mines equipped' with the latest 
automatic 'machinery and safety 
devices. A concerted effort is 
also under way to raise produc- 
tivity ui older mines. 

The attempt to squeeze ever 
greater output out.. of existing 
mines - frequently has been 
accompanied by higher produc- 
tion norms and heavy compul- 
sory overtime which on several 
occasions . has provoked strikes, 
and complaints against exploita- 
tion and the willingness of man- 
agement to turn a blind eye to 
safety regulations and proper 
maintenance. 

One of the biggest protests was 
two years -ago in the Jiu valley 
mines of Romania, where.striking 
miners openly abused President 
Nhsolae Ceasescu for. the condi- 
tions which had led them to 
strike. • 

Polish miners too hs^ve pro- 


Polish miners too .mpre pro- 
tested against compulsory over- 
time. particularly Sunday work- 


ing, and their protests were 
taken up hy the Polish Bishops. 
Now the whole shift system is 
beina drastically changed with 
the introduction of tour six-hour 
shifts every day with miners 
working sis shifts per week. 

Under this system the mines 
work 24 hours a day seven days 
a week. Miners have one 
guaranteed day off per week, 
although they only have one 
Sunday in seven at home. 

The event which drew Inter- 
nationa! attention to working 
conditions in Soviet mines was 
the formation last January of 
the 200-strong Association of 
Free Trade Unions which was 
announced to the foreign press 
in Moscow by Mr. Klebanov, an 
ex-miner and pithead shaft sup- 
ervisor in the Donbass coal 
mines. 

Mr. Klebanov tu/ned up after 
what he claimed were four years, 
in a mental hospital and a total 
of ten years unemployment fol- 
lowing dismissal for refusing to 
send miners down the pit with 
faulty safety equipment and for 
resisting management demands 
for excessive overtime. 

It was the formation of this 
free trade union in protest 
against the alleged unwilling- 


ness or inability of the official 
unions to safeguard workers* 
rights which concentrated the 
attention of western trade unions 
generally on the alleged abuse 
of workers' rights in Eastern 
Europe alongside the more tradi- 
tional targets in Iran, South 
America, and elsewhere. 

The NDM. in particular, which 
had already investigated the 
abuse of workers' "rights in 
Chile and Bolivia in consulta- 
tion with Amnesty International, 
came under pressure from some 
members of the national execu- 
tive to take up the Klebanov 
case. 

With considerable reluctance 
Mr. Joe Gormley, the union 
President, sent, a letter and 
accompanying press clippings re- 
lated to the Klebanov case to 
the president of the Soviet 
Union" of 1111 ne workers. Mr. 
Yevreny Yefremenko. asking for 
clarification 'of the situation. 

After three months' delay, Mr. 
Yefremenko s reply was received 
and subsequently accepted by a 
16 to S vote in the national 
executive. Mr. Yefremenko 
started by denying having had 
any knowledge of the Klebanov 
case until il was brought to his 
atienlinn by Mr. Gorin ley's 


letter, reminded him that attacks 
on the Soviet Union by the 
"bourgeois press’* were nothin? 
new. and insisted that “ Soviet 
miners are quite satisfied with 
the trade union they set up at 
the dawn of the Soviet Stale.” 

As for Mr. Klebanov, Mr. 
Yefremenko said that he had 
been declared an invalid afLer 
receiving an bead injury, was 
receiving a partial disability 
payment anil a pension greater 
than the maximum coat miners 
pension and that he had been 
offered several jobs, all o£ which 
he had turned down. 

Amnesty International, how 
ever, which received a copy of 
the letter unofficially before the 
vote was taken, strongly con 
tested the truth of these state 
meats. 

Amnesty maintains that, far 
from being a privileged pen- 
sioner, Mr. Klebanov, since 
announcing the formation of the 
Free Trade Union, was sent first 
to a psychiatric hospital and then 
to prison to await trial. He was 
not present at the trial and 
neither the charge nor the ver- 
dict are known to him. according 
lo his wife. Following the trial. 
Mr. Klebanov was transferred to 
the special psychiatric hospital at 
Dnepropetrovsk where he still is. 

In view of the evidence in its 
possession Amnesty wrote to the 
■YUM -secretary. Mr. Lawrence 
Daly, to suggest an investigation 
of the Klebanov ease “perhaps,

BY DIANA SMITH IN BRASILIA 

ON NOVEMBER 15 Brazil's 
■Win registered volers go lo the \ 
polls to choose deputies to stoic j 
assemblies, the national congress < 
and two thirds or the senate. The j 
remaining third of Brazil's t 
senators are appointed by the j 
central Government. # I 

The election results will take* \ 
several days to come in from far- 1 
outlying areas in this country of j 
over 3.000 municipalities. Once 1 
they are collated the public will I 
know whether President-elect 1 
General Joao Baptista Figueiredo I 
must face an opposition majority 
in congress — and how he intends t 
to deal with it. a 

Voting Is compulsory. The r 
44m Brazilians who are either * 
literate or over the age of 18, i 
of a total population or nearly 
120m, must cast their ballots t 
either for the pro- Govern meat a 
party Arena, the legal opposition t 
party MDB (Brazilian Democratic 
Movement) or leave them blank. 

The election campaign began 
on September 15. operating 
within the strict framework of 
a Ministry or Justice law passed 
in 1974 after a heated campaign 
and substantial MDB gains. 
Under this law. candidates arc 
prohibited from making political 
speeches on the broadcasting 
media. 

Thus, in principle. Brazil’s 
electioneering propaganda is 
restricted to two hours per day 
of free air lime for both parlies 
which, on television, display still 
photographs of candidates and 
run tapes containing brief, 
innocuous biographies read by an 
announcer. 

In practice, political speeches 
have been aired on the media: 
not by candidates but by General 
Figueiredo and outgoing Presi- 
dent Ernesto Geisel. This indirect 
pro- .Arena propaganda has 
recently acquired particular 
significance after Luis Carlos 
Prestes, former head of the (now 
illegal) Brazilian Communist 
Party issued a manifesto in t 
Paris urging the Brazilian people c 
to vole for the MDB as the “ only c 
way to bring democracy to t 
Brazil.” , t 

This appeal was seized on by t 
President Geisel and President- ( 
elect Figueiredo. louring the 
country on Arena’s behalf under j 
a barrage of TV cameras and £ 
radio microphones, as an c 
indication that the MDB was t 
” infiltrated by Communists." The r 
accusation was repudiated by j 
MDB leaders who stressed that 
the sirivt requirements for t 
qualifying as a party member ? 
would preclude entry of any t 
Communist into the party’s t 
ranks. 1 


The MDB is expected to sweep 
the board in Brazil’s most 
prosperous, industrialised stales. 
Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. 
It is also expected to win in the 
thriving agricultural and 
partially-industrialised- state of 
Rio de Grande do Sul and do 
well in other southern states. 
Even in the traditionally pro- 
Arena North and North East, 
backward and poor areas where 
local politicians lend to come 
from ruling families. MDB is 
likely to improve its showing. 

This is not so much because 
the Opposition party has offered 
a concrete, alternative platform 
or has a homogeneous image, 
but because of the likelihood of 
a widespread protest vote. 

The issues or greatest concern 
to the people of Brazil in 1978 
are the high cost of food, rente, 
transport and other essentials, 



President-elect General Joao 
Batista de Figneiredo 

the low minimum wage, the 
overcrowded, crime-infested con- 
ditions of Brazil's cities and 
the insecurities of rural life. But 
these questions are rarely 
touched upon by election 
candidates. 

Instead, the rallying cries 
have lingered on accusations of 
corruption in high government 
circles— all denied— and. often, 
quirky personal promises like 
retirement for men at 35 and 
for women at 30. 

Most of those waft far above 
the heads of the average voter. 
Most citizens say they will vote 
because they must — otherwise 
they face a fine that exceeds 
their monthly earning? — not 


because they have strong 
preferences for either party. 

Much of this apathy emerges 
from Brazil's artificial political 
party system: Arena and MDB 
were created 10 years ago as a 
catch-all for civilian politicians. 

So loose is their structure 
that it is often possible to find 
stringent! y-democratic, reformist 
members of Arena and markedly 
Right-wing members of MDB. 
Above all the two groupings 
reflect Brazil's ancient tradition 
of personalised, elitist politics. 

There is a new factor in 
197S. however. General Geisel’s 
willingness to soften the 
arbitrary powers of the military- 
technocratic system has led to 
an outspokenly free Press whose 
mass circulation is rising and 
influence growing. 

The public itself is more prone 
to criticise, no longer fearing 
harrassment or arrest For un- 
patriotic opinions. Business- 
men and unions are learning ;o 
deal directly with one another 
without Government patronage 
or protection. And, in the more 
sophisticated urban centres, at 
leasr. the wish and will to assert 
individual or group aspirations 
has become more marked. 

Environment protection groups 
and other forms of protest move- 
ments have swelled in recent 
years and people are gradually 
moving away from the habit of 
expecting and allowing local 
patrons or national government 
to determine the course of their 
lives. 

Furthermore. General 

Figueiredo has indicated that, 
quite early in his si*-year term, 
which begins on March 15, 1979, 
new, multiple political parties 
will emerge. Thus, the 
November 15 elections, binging 
on the obsolescent concept of 
Arena and MDB are, to a great 
extent, a transition towards a 
further, more radical transition. 

The General has softened his 
tone since the early days when 
he emerged front his former 
position as head of Brazil's 
intelligence service, and said 
that an Opposition victory in 
November would cause him to 
“ blow up.” In subsequent public 
pronouncements, be has confined 
himself to saying that it ** would 
be easier if Arena won.” 

Brazilian politics are often a 
question more of rhetoric than 
of content, subliminal messages 
delivered Lo one group or another 
while the majority of the public 
remains outside the closed-circuit 
dialogue. Nevertheless the ques- 
tion of a strongly anti-Govern- 
mem Congress exceeds the 
bounds of rhetoric, and only the 
sometimes-perplexed voter will 
provide the answer.

.Dr. Kaunda, sneaking after

able for incidents involving 
white farmers near Lusaka. \ 

At a weekend meeting the. 
farmers angrily accused guer- ‘ 
rillas of the Zimbabwe African 
People’s Union tZAPU) of 
abducting and torturing one of 
their colleagues, setting up un- 
authorised road-blocks and dis- 
rupting farming life. 

Pr. Kaunda. who met farmers’ 
representatives today for the 
second time within a week, said 
that police investigations pro- 
vided no -evidence that - truly 
Patriotic. Front freedom fighters" 
were anyotved. ** You know 
there care people called Selous 
Scouts who are as black as you 
are." he told foe audience, “who

killed: and . several wounded." i 
The statement also claimed that

OVERSEAS NEWS 




BY DAVID LENNON 

ME. MEN AH EM- BEGIN, the 
prime Minister, flew home to 
Israel today for erueial talks 
with his Cabinet op the latest 
problems which have arisen in 
the peace' talks with Egypt. 

The Premier brought with him 
proposals made by the U.S. to 
resolve the outstanding issues, 
but was unwilling to • reveal 
whether or not he would recom- 
mend that the Government 
accept them. 

The Foreign and Defence 
Ministers, who head the Israeli 
delegation to the talks in Wash- 
ington, arc due . back in Israel 
tomorrow and they too will join 
in the discussions here. 

Mr. Begin said on his arrival 
that' he -hopes the Cabinet, which 
is expected to convene tomorrow 
-and again on Thursday, would be 
able to- make decisions about the 
problems which stilt exist in the 
negotiations. 

These appear still to centre 
on the question of the link be- 
tween the implementation of an 
Egypt-Isrnel peace treaty and 
negotiations on a settlement of 
the West Bank- Gaza Slrip issue. 
IsraeJ turned down an earlier 
proposal fdr a loosely worded 
reference to- the need for talks 
about the West Bank in the 
preamble to the Egypt-Israel 
pact. 

David Buchan writes from 
Washington: In another hid to

corresponded lo an annual rate 
of about 6 per cent, compared 
to 4 per cent for 1977 as a 
whole. Barring a sharp 
reversal of this trend In the 
second half of the year, world

■ MUCH HARD negotiating re- 
mains to be done in the GATT 
: trade talks which resume in 
' Genera this weak, i? agreement 
1 t.o lower tariff and non-tariff 
j harriers is to he reached by mid- 
i December. U.5. *irade officials 
i warned today. 

But Mr. Robert Stmi^s. the 
Chief tf!.S. negotiator, is 
optimistic on his return from 
. talks last _ week with the Euro- 
pean Coin mission in Brussels 
; that if a substantive trade agree- 
ment can be presented to Con- 
gress in .January, the U.S. 
legislature can he persuaded to 
compromise on tho vexed issue 
! of countervailing duties, and 
extend the Administration's 
authority ro wasve The imposition 
; of these duties at *east while 
ithe GATT agreement is being 
i examined. 

' The EEC has 'threatened that 
if these duties, which would 
almost certainly b^- imposed on 
many of its agricultural exports 
to -the U.S.. are not .voiced, then 
it will not sign an (5^/erail trade 
agreement in Genev*^ But the 
• Aiiministrstinn here ts still con- 
j fideni that these European 
worries will prove unrounded. 

Mr. Strauss, in a FrAss inter- 
view over the weekend, ^aid he 
. expected to he able to present 
i “Congress with a whole package 
j of agreements" worked otjl In 
! Geneva, and key Demoyratte 
i leaders in Congress had. told" him 
they would push for an extension 


of the " waiver authority " while 

the agreements were exam med. 
ia Congress. 

U S trade officials say that key 
senators. like Senator Russell 
Long, chairman of the Senate 
Finance Committee, and Senator 
Abraham mbicoff. chairman of 
its trade sub-committee, and Key 
Congressmen in the House of 
Representatives like Mr AI 
Uilman. chairman of the House 
Ways and Means CommitTee. ana 
Mr. Charles Vanik, who chairs its 

trade sub-committee, favoured 
this approach. . . 

As a fallback position, the 
Administration is also consider- 
ing what executive aetton it 
might take to delay collection 
of countervailing duties if 
Congress is not prompt in 
extending the waiver at the start 
ot January. 

The Administration hopes that 
ihc Europeans will also con- 
sider President Carter's veto on 
the textile Bill, which would 
have barred any textile tariff 
concessions by the U.S. in the 
GATT talks, an earnest of U.S. 
intent to see the GATT negotia- 
tions succeed. Mr. Carter vetoed 


WASHINGTON, Nov. 13. 

the Bill over the weekend, 
because of feare that other 
' countries, notably the European 
CanMBiiuty, might . retaliate by 
refusing to make con cessions on 
other products. 

• U-ST Congressmen issued blunt 
warnings in Tokyo on. two sensi- 
tive bilateral issues, trade and 
defence. Members of a 41-aan

Jane mine 


fir PAUL CHEESERIGHT 

MR. ROBERT L-. SPRLVkEL a 
Californian huaihe&su'ntin, has 
reached broad "agreement with 
Consol ids led Cold Fields for the 
purchase of ilie-WTiezl Jane tin 
mine, near Truro in. Cornwall. 

The agreement was. disclosed 
last night by a upoeksman for 
Mr. Sprinkel. but he would not 
disclose the purchase price. This 
rs thought to be less than £2m. 

However, the agreement does 
not at this stage guarantee that 
rescue the mine which slopped 
Mr. Sprinkel will be able to 
producing tin last May. ■' 

Mr. Sprinkel will ' be seeking 
£Sm in the City, and possibly 
from the Government, to buy the 
mine and launch's development 
plan which will involve spending 
for at least nine months before 
any revenue is generated. 

His ability to raise this sum 
will depend to a large extent on 
how the City views a technical 
appraisal of the niine aDd the 
development plan now being 
under taken by Mackay. and 
Schne'llmann. a firm of London 
consultants. 

This means that the agreement 
with Gold Fields can only be a 
broad understanding. But its 
existence, and tbe purchase price 
it specifies, undoubtedly gives 
Mr. Sprinkel a firmer basis on 
which to mount his financial 
demands. 

He has now moved further 

down the road to a Wheal Jane 
rescue ihtan oiber companies in 
the months sauce last May. Pre- 
viously, Saint Pi ran. the majority 




4V ; 

Mr. ROBERT SPRINKEL UI 
. . . seeking £Sm in City 

owner of South Crofty. the 
largest tin mine in Cornwall, was 
considered as a. potential buyer. 

Saint Piran was followed by 
Cornwall Tin and Mining, the 
Canadian-TJ.S.- Swiss grouping, 
which owns the neighbouring 
Mount Wellington mine. This 
operation slopped produciion 
shortly before Gold Fields 
decided that Wheal Jane was no 
longer economic. 


Although CTM did survey* 
''heal Jane and informed th*- 
Government, it never presented 
a flefiniie plan to the Department 
of Industry and talks were 
broken off. 

However. Mr. Sprinkel is 
believed to have reached an 

agreement with CTM to gain con- 
trol of ihc pumping equipment 
at Mount Wellington. This is 
a necessary >lep in view of the 
facr :har if the pumps ar either 
Wheal Jane or Mount Welling- 
ton -?tnp. the water level increases 
at tbe other mine. 

In recent weeks. Mr. Sprinkel 
has been pushing his rescue 
attempt on monv fronts. This 
has included talks with Trans- 
port and General Workers Union 
representatives in Cornwall. 

Their concern about ihe future 
of Wheal Jane was most vividly 
cvpressed in May when they 
lohbedic MPs at the Commons. 
Mr. Sprinkel is understood to 
have reached broad agreement 
wish them. 

The iifsuc is of acute local 

importance because the closure 
of Mount Wellington and Wheal 
Jane meant that S00 people were 
pushed on io the labour market 
in an area where unemployment 
is double ihe national average. 

Mr. Sprinkel’s ability to re- 
cmploy some of these men 

depends ultimately on his ability 

in convince the City that his 
plans to work a low-grade tin 
mine are likely to be more effec- 
tive than those of Gold Fields.

from £I59m to £lS7m.

accounted for t>y ihe tyre divi- 
sion. Dunlop :*aid it* British. 
Irish and German tyre opera- 
tions all lost money and it was 
only in France that a small profit 
v-.ii made. 

So far. however, the rompanjes 
have not fif.ne very much about 

rationalising production capacity. 
In the UK. Goodyear made 400 
pe'ipl" redundaut at its Wolver-

g rutin shut down us operations

However. Dunlop is r.ow reach- 
ing the end o? a thorough investi- 


gation of its European operations 
and is close to reaching decisions 
about its future production and 
marketing strategy. 

il now seems almost certain 
that the plant at Speke, where 
2.400 are employed, will bt 
closed. 

Culling capacity is only part

CHEMICAL industry trade unions 
yesterday accused multinationnl 
petrochemical concents. of V sabo- 
taging" attempts to develop an 
industrial stralegy for the 
plastics materials sector. 

The accusation follows a row 
over investment plans among 
members of the petrochemicals 
sector working party — one of 39 
tripartite groups set up by the 
Government to encouarge the 
development of key sectors of 
industry. 

The row centres on recom- 
mendations made in the McKm- 
sey report, commissioned by the 
National Economic Development 
Office and completed more than 
a year ago, but published only 
today; 

The report says that in order 
to . balance trade in.. 1 plastics 
materials with tbe rest of. the 
EEC by 1990. UK producers can 
either delay investment for the 
present, invest sufficiently to 
protect their home market or 
Invest heavily as lo he ahead 
uf European competitors once 
demand starts to pick .up. Union 
representatives on Ihc working 
party insist the industry must 
go for heavy investment now so 
as to be ahead of the rest of the 
EEC by 1090. But company 
representatives are determined 
on a more cautious approach. 


As a result, the two sides have 
failed to draw up joint proposals 
tor an industrial strategy to go 
before Ihc National Economic 
Development Council in the new 
jear. And yesterday the unions 
called on the Government to step 
in and break the deadlock. 

Mr. Roger Lyons, national 
officer of tbe AssoicaUon of 
Scientific. Technical and Mana 
gcrial Staffs said imports of 
plasiics material.; tu tin* UK were 
running at £520m » year. And 
he claimed employers had 
-ai'Otaged attempts to reduce this 
bill. 

He said multinational plastics 
materials producers wore invest- 
ing on tbe Continent in area.* in 
which they claimed there was 
already over-capacity in the UK. 
He named-lCl and BP Chemicals 
and accused both of "selling the 
nation short" 

The unions say that the UK 
share of EEC production of 
plastics materials fell from 22 
per cent in 1963 to 13 per cent 
in 3975 and that the trade 
deficit with other EEC countries 
stood at £163m last year and is 
expected in reach £220m ihi? 
year. They also note that import 
penetration in piastics materials 
bas risen front 30 per cent to 36 
per cent over the last two years. 


Ship repair group seeks 
reduction in rates 


BY OUR SHIPPING CORRESPONDENT 


A PRIVATELY-OWNED ship- 
repair company on the Tyne has 
J asked for a rate rebate from 
j North Tyneside Council to help 
1 it meet competition from nationa- 
| Used yards and overhead com- 
petitors. 

Smith's Ship Repairers of 
North Shields, which declared 
370 men redundant last month 
anti is expected to report shortly 
a loss for the year of over £lm. 
has complained in the past about 


subsidised competition from 
nearby T.vdp Ship Repair, which 
is pari of British Shipbuilders. 

Tyne Ship Repair is also having 
heavy losses, though the compauj 
has not released any figures. 

Smith's would not comment on 
Its application to the council 
yesterday, but the council said 
that the company paid £212.000 
a year in rates and sewerage 
charges.

NEWS ANALYSIS— CHARTER FLIGHTS to SPAIN AND; PORTUGAL 


Airlines row threatens 


BY MICHAEL DONNE 


BY MAX WILKINSON 

MR. SIMON JENKINS. Editor of 
tiie Even ins Standard, has 
resigned after a series oF dis- 
agreements with Mr. Victor 
Matthews, chairman of Express 
Newspapers. 

Mr. Jenkins became editor two 
years ago when he was 33. His 
tenure spans one of the most 
stormy periods ia the paper's 
history. 

It was threatened with closure, 
and with being taken over by 
Associated Newspapers, which 
•.van ted to absorb it into its own 
Evening News. 

Mr. Jenkins and Mr. Charles 
Win tour, former editor of the 
Standard and now its managing 
director, waged a llam boy ant 

and skilful publicity campaign 
m save the Standard from death, 
nr what some partisans thought 
a fate woivc than death at the 
hands nf Associated. 

The Standard's cries for help 
brought sympathy from the 
Government, and more impor- 
tantly -j rescue bid from Trafal- 
gar House, the present owner.

Quite obviously choosing a computer system isn’t as easy as choosing a washing' 
machine.The actual hardware is only half the story 

, Without the software to drive it, it’s as good as useless. 

And getting a programme specially written for your exact needs is a very costly 
business indeed. 

Which is why many people prefer to use ready-made software packages. 

And why at NCR, we set out to produce one of the most comprehensive ranges of 
economical, ready-made software packages available. Including sophisticated systems/ 
for manufacturers and distributors. 


So you're pretty sure to find one that won’t merely accommodate your needs, 
but will fit them exactly 

But we haven’t stopped there" ■ 

. All the computer systems in the 8000 series are compatible with each other 

Which means that even when you outgrow your present system, the same 
software can still be used. Allowing you to migrate to any level of computer technology

FLYWHEEL development ha? 
taken a new turn, with work 
carried out in France by Societ* 

Aerospatiale, which aims at mak- 
ing very high r.p-nt. but light- 
v eight units into “maids of ail 
work " which can be used as 
prime movers or as supplemen- 
tary power sources in many 
applications. 

The idea of using flywheel*: tu 
store kinetic energy is not new. 
hut in this instance, the carbon 
tihre-rvin forced wheels are spun 
up to 100,000 r.p.m. by small 
elect ric motors. As ike wheels 
would l?r placed in an evacuated 
enclosure and are supported vir-

bfjrinas. they can coa-erve their

Financial ' Times 1 Tuesday. ■ 


EDITED BY CHRISTOPHER LORENZ 


AT first meeting, timsrpne 
Medici <eems a most unlikely 
choice to head Montedison — 
Italy’s most controversial cor- 
poration which in recent years 
has earned itself the dubious 
reputation of making and un- 
making presidents. 

Indeed, when the 7 f -year-old 
former Christian Democrat 
senator was nominated some 15 
mnnihs ago as chairman of the 
Milan chemical and textiles 
conglomerate, his surprise 
appointment was met with a 
good deal of cynicism. As a 
former agriculture and industry 
minister, as well as an e.\- 
fnreign secreiary. he is perhaps 
best known to Italians in general 
for his sartorial elegance, his 
Panama hat and his walking 
stick. 

Mr. Medici's appointment was 
interpreted as a compromise in 
the face of the seemingly un- 
breakable deadlock between the 
financially troubled group's 
private and public shareholders 
and the disagreement between 
political party leaders over who 
should succeed the retiring and 
highly controversial chairman 
of Montedison. Dr. Eugenio 
Cefis. But perhaps more than 
a compromise, it reflected the 
decision of the main political 
forces to wash their hands, for 
the time being at least, of the 
entire and increasingly 
explosive problems of the 
financially troubled group. 

In his brief period as chair- 
man. Sig. Medici, who. on the 
whole, has sought to keep him- 
self out of the headlines, has 
tried to defuse the Montedison 
affair. He has partially suc- 
ceeded in large measure as a 
result of the apparent indiffer- 
ence shown towards the com- 
pany of the political forces. In 
turn this has enabled the group 
to put together at last a financial 
and structural reorganisation 
programme to pull Montedison, 
with more than LS.OOObn of 
accumulated debts and losses 
last year close on LfiOObn. out 
of the doldrums. 

The financial part of the pro- 
gramme involves a capital 
increase operation unprece- 
dented in Italian corporate 
history. The parent company's 
capital to he raised by a 
four for three rights issue (with 
the nominal value of the new 
share; of LI 75 each* from 
Ll52.5bn to L355.7bn and sub- 
sequently to some L530hn 
through a LI 75 bn hnnd issue. 

At the same time. Montedfsnn 
is to sell some of its fixed assets 
in its profitable financial and 
insurance sector, its hydrn- 
elertrical plants and perhaps its 
stake in a Spanish subsidiary 
to raise additional funds. .Also 
it will revalue the hook value 
of other assets, including its 
natural gas fields in the 
Adriatic, to cover its continuing 
substantial operating losses. As 
regards the .structural re- 
organisation this wili mainly 
affect the group’* heavy loss- 
making synthetic fibres activities 
which are to be incorporated 
and rationalised in a separate

new concern called Sniafibre. 

While there have so far been 
few signs of the rights issue 
being subscribed by Mont- 
edison'? army of small private 
shareholders, who account for 
some 25 per cent of the com- 
pany's base capital with the 
remaining 75 per cent controlled 
by large private and public 
shareholder?, a combination of 
factors is expected to guarantee 
the operation. 

In thr face of the expected 
reluctance of small shareholders 
in invest again in a company 
which has seen its share prire 
drop dramatically from LI .000 
in a present level averaging 
LI80 and which has not paid 
a dividend sincp 1974. Medio- 
banca. the State-controlled 
medium-term credit institute, is 
offering a series of conditions 
to persuade these small share- 
holders eventually to pump 
fresh savings into Ihe group. 
A minimal deposit of some L40 
will allow these shareholders to 
retain therr rights to subscribe 
for as long as two years. In 
the meantime. Mediobanca and 
a group of leading Italian banks 
heavily exposed in Montedison, 
will guarantee the issue in 
order to avoid the prospect of 
heavy debt write-offs in the 
event of the company’s financial 
collapse. Not that the political 
Forces could allow such a col- 
lapse in view of the social 
repercussions this would entail. 

IViih the exception of Bastugi. 
the Rome-based financial com- 
pany. Montedison’s other large 
shareholders are expected to 
fake up their share of the capital 
increase. 

The most significant aspect 
of the operation is the decision 
of the Paris-based Banque Arabe 
Internationale et dTnvestisse- 
ment to buy on behalF of so 
far unknown private Saudi 
Arabian interests, a 10 per cent 
equity stake in Montedison, so 
becoming one of the companv's 
single largest shareholders. This 
has clearly given the chemical 
conglomerate much needed 
credibility — and eventually 
much needed credit — both on 
the domestic and international 
markets. The d**al. which Is 
understood to have been worked 
out by Montedison's deputy 
chairman. Mario Schimbemi. 
and the Mediobanca managing 
director. Enrico Cuccia (who. 
incidentally, played a major 
part in the celebrated £250m 
deal between Fiat and Libvat. 
also includes the setting up of 
a trading company jointly 
controlled by Montedison and 
the Saudi financial interests.

Giuseppe Medici — trying to 
defuse the Montedison affair. 


Indeed, most analysts here 
suggest that it is this pan of 
the venture which most 
attracted the Saudi Arabians, 
although for a relative modest 
LoObn they have also bought 
a major voice In the world's 
seventh largest chemical con- 
glomerate with an established 
presence in a series of impor- 
tant international markets. 
About 40 per cent of Mont- 
edison’s current annual turnover 
of some La .000 bn is made up 
of exports. 

Equally significant are re- 
ports that West 'German in- 
terests have also been buying 
Montedison shares in recent 
weeks. This is partly inter- 
preted as straightforward spe- 
culation on the part of foreign 
buyers who can pick up shares 
on the Italian Bourse at de- 
pressed levels with the possi- 
bility of a longer term recovery. 
However, for some time there 
has been increasing evidence of 
concern by other international 
chemical operators, which 
clearly view the steady de- 
terioration of Montedison's 
financial and structural position 
as inevitably leading to greater 
public control of the company, 
thus threatening the interna- 
tional market. 

The immediate result of the 
new Saudi shareholders and the 
intervention of other foreign 
buyers will be to reinforce the 


private character of the group 
and. at the end of the year, a 
new controlling shareholding 
syndicate will be chosen on 
which the Saudi interests will 
be represented. In theory at 
least, however. Montedison's 
syndicate will retain its 50/50 
mixed private-public nature. 
The Saudis are also expected to 
have representatives on the 
company board and their pre- 
sence is likely to dictate to 
some extent the future manage- 
ment structure of the s r °up. 

It is perhaps no coincidence 
that a banker from Kuwait, 
whose bank also holds a stake 
in the Banque Arabe Interna- 
tionale et dlnvestisseraeiiL 
recently remarked that the 
main trouble with Montedison 
has been its management and 
that an improvement in this 
area could induce other possible 
foreign investors to consider 
turning to the chemical group. 

This is perhaps one of the 
most serious aspects or rhe 
steady deterioration in recent 
years not only of; Montedison 
but also the country's entire 
parastatal industrial system, one 
sf the backbones; of the -Italian 
economy and which has also 
served as a rnjidel for Britain'?

A single lift for m.v. ‘Craftsman’ 


Five hundred tons is the lifting capacity of the m.v. 
"Craftsman”. 

It is the greatest lifting capacity of any liner vessel under 
the British flag. 

This vessel forms part of the Harrison Line Fleet which 
has a total of seven ships built and equipped for the 
carriage of heavy lifts. 

All are available for specialised assignments, often 
travelling to parts of the globe off traditional liner 
Toutes to carry out a single job - such as transportin'* a 
massive transformer. 

Heavy lift vessels, container ships, bulk carriers and 
conventional liner vessels all play an important pan in 
the modem Harrison Line fleet. 

But a shipping line is built from more than ships. 
Harrison people are hand picked and hiphlv 
experienced. Those on land are backed by modern 
aids, such as computers for the all-important 


documentation. Unlike the elephant, Harrisons is 
the largest of its kind. 

Bur, with the finest ships, skilled personnel and a 
tradition ofI25 years of caring for cargo, Harrison 
one of the finest shipping lines today.

Since the revolution of 1974 Portugal 
has sought to strengthen its, ties with the EEC. It 
is now firmly committed to the European ideal and regards membership of 
the Community as an essential means of consolidating democracy.

Within Portugal reservations 
about joining the Community 
have come from both the Com- 
munist Party, which dominates 
the trade union movement, and 
the extreme Right But the 
strictly orthodox views of. the 
communists have been less 
strident of late, and .most 
observers believe - that the 
Government has a fairly free 
hand to negotiate. The hesi- 
tancy and suspicion towards the 
Community so evident in 
Britain ij» largely absent in 
Portugal. 

Negotiations 

Negotiations are being 
approached in a non-partisan 
atmosphere. A nine-man com- 
mission has been set up to con- 
duct negotiations, headed by 
Sr. Vitor Constancio, vice- 
governor of the Central Bank 
and a former Finance Minister. 
Sr. Constancio refused to serve 
as minister under the recent, 
short-lived Nobre da Costa 
Government or whatever new 
administration may be formed, 
but was willing to act as chief 
negotiator in the role of a 
senior civil servant. It is hoped 
that this should free negotia- 
tions from The seemingly 
inevitable ructions of Portu- 
guese politics, and, ' given Sr. 
Consrancio's . : forceful per- 
sonality. the Portuguese position 
is likely to be largely shaped 
by him.,. Although the negotia- 
tions opened .'last.' month in 
Luxembourg, they will not begin 
in' eirhesr until December/ 


January. Formal accession is 
not expected before 1983. 

Portugal does not want a 
globalisation of negotiations to 
include the other two appli- 
cants. and this seems to have 
been accepted- at the outset by 
all involved. The timing of the 
three countries' applications has 
been different and their trade 
relations with the Community 
are dissimilar. As a member 
of EFTA Portugal was particu.- 
largly affected-Jjy.Tthe.. entry of 
Britain and “Denmark into lire 
EEC. These • two countries 
absorbed a quarter of Portu- 
guese exports, and in order 
to secure continued access to 
these markets Portugal pro- 
posed a renegotiation of its posi- 
tion. which resulted in the trade 
agreement of July, 1973 — still 
the basis of Portugal's trade 
relationship with the Com- 
munity. Under the terms of this 
agreement and subsequent 
revisions, duties by 198Q will 
apply to only .20 per cent' of 
EFTA and EEC imports (which 
account for about 41 per cent of 
total imports). 

If this reduction of Portugal's 
tariff barriers works, then by 
1980 Portugal could claim to 
be applying the equivalent of 
only 30 per cent of the duties 
effective back in 1972. For 
balance -of -payments reasons 
Portugal is still applying an 
import surcharge scheme. Also 
to protect its own agriculture 
l Portugal imports twice as 
much agricultural goods as it 
expons)- it gives no concessions 
to the Community. The Com- 


munity for its part has scrapped 
ah. tariffs on Portuguese indus- 
trial goods. Portugal in Fact is 
the least pro -ei-iinni st-mtnded 
of the three applicants. 
Although Oils is obviously a 
point in its favour, it will not 
lessen the problems involved in 
Community membership. 

The Commis-itio warns bluntly 
that in its opinion " political 
considerations must not. how- 
ever. be .■allowed to obscure the 
ecoiwinic dunciilties.'’ These 
difficulties stem from the 

country's lack of natural 
resources, small population and 
comparative poverty. When 

viewed against the rest of the 
Community per capita income 
is well below the European 
average, even that of the new 
applicants. Portugal's per 
capita income stands at $1,504 
against $2,390 for Greece and 
$^394 for Spain. Current 
Portuguese production is equiva- 
lent to only 1 per cent of the 
Nine.*s GDP. By Community 
standards the 28 per cent- of the 
population involved in agricul- 
ture is high. especially as it 
accounts' for only 12 per cent 
of GDP. Within i he coumry 
Ihere are substantial disparities 
of wealth between the regions, 
industry, being concentrated in 
a small coastal strip between 
Braga. and Seiubal. The coun- 
try's level of development is 
symbolised by the high number 
of eraigi^nts. some 6OU.O0O of 
whom are- working inside the 
Community 

Portugal's?- industrial base 
relies heavily on traditional 


sectors like textiles; while 
agriculture is dogged by 
inefficii:ncy. unsuitecl cultures 
and political disputes over land 
ownership. The vulnerability 
of both industry and agriculture 
arc examined separately else- 
where in this survey. Here it 
is important merely to 
emphasise that these weak- 
nesses do not exist in isolation. 
They are compounded by the 
general disruptions caused by 
the revolution and the abrupt 
end to rhe colonial era that 
witnessed a massive influx of 
refugees from Angola and 
Mozambique — a combination of 
events which swelled unemploy- 
ment. negatively affected pro- 
duction and investment confid- 
ence aud which created a surge 
in consumption that was 
immediately reflected in serious 
strains on the balance of pay- 
ments. The net effect has been 
to produce the most precarious 
economy in Europe, only now 
just beginning to move down 
the path of stabilisation under 
the firm tutelage of the IMF. 


Controls 


As a counterpart for financial 
aid. the IMF insisted on tough 
credit controls, higher interest 
rates and further escudo depre- 
ciation to halt inflation and 
improve the balance of pay- 
ments. whose deficit earlier this 
year had reached an unaccept- 
able P per cent of GDP. With 
some exceptions in public sector 
credit, the IMF guidelines are 


heing observed. By next March 
ihc enrrem account deficit 
should be reduced to Slbn. But 
IMF tutelage is only a short- 
term expedient and. moreover, 
deflationary- Portugal on the 
other hand, if it is to approach 
closer lo the Community level 
of development, must sustain 
a high average growth rare in 
the coming years This chal- 
lenge for a structurally weak 
economy will cast ultimately the 
biggest cloud over the accession 
nesotiations. 

Growth this year will be about 
3 5 per cent, with inflation run- 
ning at 20-21 per cent. Much 
simplified the problem is as 
follows: to sustain 3 per cent 
growth Portugal will need some 
Slbn in external assistance 
annually. Even that will not 
really be high enough to bring 
Portugal closer to its European 
partners in the foreseeable 
future. Yet higher growth will 
merely aggravate the balance of 
payments problem, and if higher 
growth is sought existinc bar- 
riers to domestic and foreign 
investment confidence will have 
to disappear. These will only 
disappear nnce the restrictive 
lahmir laws are altered, com- 
pensation payments for national- 
ised sectors resolved and pro- 
hibitions on capital movements 
relaxed. Such inherent diffi- 
culties of managing future 
growth must he seen in tandem, 
too. with the delicate task of 
fixing a satisfactory transition 
period. This will be particu- 
larly acme in rhe agricultural 
sector, where Portugal's food- 


stuffs imports will increase t» 
be only partially offset by higher 
prices for such items as wme 
and tomato concentrate. 

Just how high a price 
Portugal will have to pay is 
still unclear. But it would be 
mistaken to put too much 
emphasis on the problems 
because there are substantial 
gains in sight, quite apart from 
the main political one. The 
prospect of impending EEC 
membership should act as a 
catalyst for ail sorts of 
improvements in the efficiency 
of the administration, starting 
it is hoped with a centralised 
and regular flow of accurate 
statistics. Membership also 
promises to focus on a more 
rational approach to Portugal's 
regional disparities- 

More exciting is the prospect 
of attracting European industry 
to establish itself in Portugal, 
offering as it does the lowest 
industrial overheads in Europe. 
Here a major unknown is how 
Portugal and Spain will conic to 
regard each other as the same 
Iberian market Until now these 
two neighbours have, chosen to 
ignore joint economic potential 
through a mixture of protec- 
tionism and historic rivalry. 
Logically the two countries 
should view each other as be: 
longing to the same market in 
the future, and this could have 
enormous implications for the 
development of the border 
region between the two coun- 
tries. ai present the most back- 
ward and neglected area of ihe 
Iberian Peninsula.

Banco de Fomento Nacional 


LET US INTRODUCE YOU 
TO PORTUGUESE INDUSTRIAL INVESTMENTS 


We are a Development Bank operating in Portugal since 
1959 in the field of medium and long term financing of econo- 
mic projects mainly of an industrial nature. 

For our investment credit operations we use in addition to 
internally generated funds a wide range of external resources 
including loans from international financial institutions such 
as the World Bank and the European Investment Bank and 
credit lines from many public and private foreign banks. 

Our Board of Management also acts in Portugal as the 
Executive Commission of the EFTA Fund for the Industrial 
Development of Portugal. 

We are thus in a position to provide full appraisal and fi-

—fled the former colonies follow- 
ing independence. The sudden 
influx into Portugal of such a 
number over the' last two years 
has put severe . strains on the 
Portuguese economy. The Por- 
tuguese Government has spent 
an estimated Es.50bn in creating 
job opportunities, and bousing 
facilities for the majority of the 
** retorjiados The integration 
has not been entirely successful; 
given . Portugal’s limited econ 
omic resources and its badly 
structured industry and agricul- 
ture. With unemployment Tun- 
ning at around 15 per cent and 
an already acute housing short- 
age the “African problem” has 
simply aggravated the situa- 
tion. 

That Portugal's former 
colonies may in the future be- 
come a more substantial vent 
for Portugal's surplus labour is 
a possibility that has not gone 
unnoticed by EEC officials- 
Portuguese emigration” (see 
elsewhere in this Survey) is 
one of the more troubling 
issues facing both the EEC and 
Portuguese negotiating teams. 

Equally the fact that the 
former colonies may in the 
future have the potential to 
absorb some Portuguese ex- 
ports. which have failed to find 
the necessary outlets elsewhere 
in the world, will be looked on 
kindly by Brussels. 

As far as Portuguese officials 
are concerned, however, the 
problem oF trade ' 'with the 
former colonies is not as clear- 
cut as it might at first appear. 
Traditional Portuguese exports 
to Africa, such as textiles and 
wine, are precisely those that 
would be harder hit once 
Angola and Mozambique had 
entered the Lome convention. 

It will be up to tiie Com- 
munity to ensure that once 
Angola and Mozambique have 
been brought into the European 
camp, . Portugal’s efforts in 
making .that possible will- not 
go unrewarded;

pother symptom of' reviving 
L?v? I ? 5t , m -& rints - Ihe neglect of 
5J*j5 b sinrt the war became at 
iinies almost scandalous, until a 
SJUP'* Of years ago an in-es'm- 
t’ble lady from Boston. Eleanor 
~? yr *» came over and inside six 
monihs called .the print-rooms 
of museums in Britain to order. 
Jv' h ’ ch done, bbe returned to' 
Boston. The mezzotints 9hown 
♦if r . e are '. brilliant examples of 
that particular technique at its 
®o* s *' a " d it is a technique in 
wnicn the major British expo- 
nents have never been surpassed, 
un the continent, it became 
Known as u la maniere snglaise." 
while Reynolds i s -reported as 
saimg that he vested his trust 
m his own immortality on 
James McArdell’.s .engravings oE 
his work rather than on the 
paintings themselves, so liable to 
deterioration. Loss of interest in 
mezzotints followed Inevitably 
on the development, of . photo- 
mechanical processes of repro- 
duction. but also to an extent on 
the number or poor, worn im- 
pressions in circulation. 'Mezzo- 
tinted plates wear much more 
quickly than line engraved ones. 

The spectacular quality of ihe 
British Museum holdings Df 
prooF impressions brings home 
the aptitude of the mezzotint to 
convey not only the composition 
of an oil painting but a remark- 
able black-aDd-white equivalent 
of the texture and richness of 
oil colours and substance. 
Superbly decorative in their 
elegance, some of them are 
indeed more satisfactory than 
their originals, as the latter now- 
are, owing to Reynolds's 
notorious use of impermanent 
colours. Gainsborough, on the 
other hand, linear and lyrical, 
did not translate well into 
mezzotint terms, 'so dependent 
on contrast of light and shade: 
his own soft-ground etching and 
acquatint techniques, however, 
managed to capture- on the 
metal plate the swift freshness 
of his drawing with almost no 
loss of spontaneity. 

Reynolds's own drawings are 
not shown In such depth (they 
are rare anyway) and some oF 
them are almost bruising in 
quality compared with Gains-

swift, aides-memoire noted with

in the light of the passion for 
Old Master drawings shown here

able formal informality of a 1 cast— the.Academy Theatre Com- 


has noted on it. surely correctly, 
that the painter “ must have been 
a man accustomed to see fine 
women”). 

This show is in sheer contrast 
to its neighbour in its brilliance 
of clear shadowless colour, 
defined by the purest, 
unimpassioned profiling l-ine. Its 


he wan not a heavy Wagnerian 
but- could be as' tight as 
Offenbach. 

The Met Bride plays on a 
largely bare stage against a blue 
backcloth with a fringe of slits 
to allow' entrances through it. 
(The designer' is Svobuda.) 
Dexter would be left with a 
coocert performance had he not 
invented wbat looks like a 
beginner's bright ideas: during 
Marenka's and Jenik'a first 
scene, one or the other is atop 
a teetering stepladder: in 
Marenka's scene with Vasek she 
darts about gathering eggs. There 
arc also passages of sheer 
perversity: the polka is a diver- 
tissement on a completely bare 
stage; the furiant — that 
exuberant outburst when the 
girls pour into the tavern — is 
staged as squabble between 
flighty waiters; Jenik and Kecal 
make their deal eorom choro. 

Perhaps the show should be 
lauded for consistency. Casting 
and translation are equally odd. 
Destion. Gadski. Maria Mliller, 
Fletbbcrg. and Novotna form the 
line of Met Marenkas: now 
Teresa Stratas plays her as bard 
little shrew, and she sounds 
small and pinched. A s Jenik, 
Nicolai Gedda sounds un- 
roinantic. and be enacts a blonde, 
Vasek- 1 ike booby. Vasek is Jon 
Vickers — a Parsifal circled by 
little boys instead of flower- 
maidens — Holy Fool or incipient 
Peter Grimes? Martti Tairela 
barks his way sternly though 
Kecal s patter without showing a 
trace of humour throughout the 
evening — and in incomprehen- 
sible accents. 

The new translation is by Tony 
Harnson. Little of it can be 
beard, and it's not really the 
singer's fault (except in the case 
of Talrela). It's awkward for 
one translator to criticise the 
work of another, so let me just 
suggest that Mr, Harrison 
evidently does not share my 
beliefs that an English version 
should attempt (li to use 
audibly intelligible syntax, ti!) 
to render the sense or the 
original, and (3) to fit the music 
without making difficulties for 
the singers. 

Examples, culled from the 
newly-printed libretto when the 
words are inaudible in the 


theatre: (!) "Feari day's feast 
day”— the car cannot tp|j“ whether 
the .9 is pJuraJ. possessive, or, a s 
here, an elided "1>“: ‘'Women 
workers, husbands boozers.” (-> 
Jenik - s ‘"Though a mother -is □ 
blessing, a cruel siepmother's 
nothing but curse"— Rosa New- 
mareb's rendering is Uiih literal 
and 'ingable — is turned into 
“Hnnip's Moravia, farm and 
but- here 1 >:k-cp in the 
straw.” (2 and 3i Jlureiika's 
lovely threefold “I want to live 
faithful forever" becomes “My 
fife's ail finished nnw”— emotion 
altered, sustained notes in short 
i'.s (‘■fee-neeshed" ). and the con- 
sunanl cluster xhdn sputtering 
through the snionih cadence. 

The opening lines — they mean 
“ Why not be happy. Since God 
gives us health " — provide a 
good pointer. Xewmareh has 
“ Come, then let us ail !.<• merry./ 
Since God gives us health today 
which is nearly literal, though 
11 then " in ■ traoslalorese. Joan 


Cross and Eric Crnzier's "Now's 
the time For Fun and laughter./ 
V-'c. have earned a holiday ” 
comes over clearly. Harrison, 
cxjiaoding ihe repealed first line, 
gives us: “ Sliil got .slrengUj.iu 
face the wor.o with./Well-brewH 
beer to heal a thirst with'./We’vp 
all earned this holiday '—and

Levines conducting was high- 
spi riled, hut ruthlessly so. The 
players, especially the wood- 
winds. did noi have rime to enjoy 
the marvellous music That 
Smetana has written for them. 
But Levine’s first nighls arc often 
driven ton hard. There were 
signs that he loved the score — 
hnw could anyone not love it? — 
and would relax into teading a 
performance tender as well as 
brilliant. Thon. with a new cast, 
new scenery, and a new transla- 
tion, it might .be very enjoyable.

The Belfast Festival at Queen's 
University usually presents, as 
one event among many in a 
programme bewildering for its 
range and variety, the. concert 
performance of some long- 
forgotten opera. Tb : s year the 
treasure exhumed was Gabriel !a 
di Verffy, a work by Donize*ti 
receiving, at least in this parti- 
cular form, its World premiere. 
Donizetti originally set Tottoia's 
text" in 1826, - apparently for his 
own .amusement' as he had no 
coiriBrssion for the work. Twelve 
years ‘later, needing an opera for 
the.ojiexiing of the season at the 
San Carlo in Naples, he re^ 
worked . the score of GabridJa 
entirely, incorporating sections 
from several other of his operas, 
notably Maria di Rudenz and 
Ugo conte di Parigi. 

For Various reasons this ver- 
sion of Gabrieffa was not per- 
formed at the time either, though 
some. of- the music found its way 
into Adelin. In 1S69. more than 
two .decades after. the composer's 
death: . Gabriella di Veray was 
officially premiered at the San 
Carlo) though the score used was 
in fact a pastiche drawn from 
various source*, some of them 
non : operatic. Recently a manu- 
script: copy of the 3S3S verrion 
was. discovered fn the Sterling 
l ibrary of London University- by 
Patric Schmid, and formed the 
basw’.of the ;perfmnance given 
by Opera Rara.ln Belfast- 

Tbe plot has the triaogular 
outline familiar from many other 
Italian .operas of the period: 
Gabriella, mistakenly believing 
her r lover Raoul to be dead, is 
forced into marriage with FayeL 
On Raoul’s return be is chailen- 

Festival Hall 


ged to a duel and killed by Fayel. 
who presents a casket containing 
the bleeding heart of h&r beloved 
to Gabriella; she dies of horror 
and shock. The music, despite 
its multifarious origins, has sur- 
prising stylistic unity, reflecting 
Donizetti's mature. post-Lucia 
manner of composition. A flne 
soprano/baritone duet for 
Gabriella and Fayel in the first 
art combines new material with 
music from Maria di Rudenz. The 
rousing second-act finale is 
mostly new but borrows a sec- 
tion from Pia deToIcmurk while 
the even more rigorous tenor/ 
baritone duet for. Raoul and 
Fayel leading To their duel dates 
partly from the 1S26 version. 

In concert performances - of 
opera the conductor bears 
special responsibility for bind- 
ing individual numbers into a 
valid dramatic whole. Aluh 
Francis, who has launched and 
guided many of Opera Rara's 
discoveries, kept the pulse of 
the mu3ic flowing strongly, while 
his feeling for rhythm was a 
great asset iD the cabalettas with 
which the piece is plentifully 
supplied. Gabriella was sung by 
La Verne Williams who. though 
a throat infection forced her to 
pace the long first act very care- 
fully. did ample justice to the 
heroine's extended death scene. 
Maurice Arthur sang sturdily as 
Raoul, while Christian du Plessis 
created a convincing character 
as the villainous Fayel. Roderick 
Earle (King Filippo), Joan 
Davies (Alnieide) and Julian 
Farrell (Armando) made the 
best of limited opportunities.

The cycle. of the Mahler odd- 
numbered symphonies by Lonn 
Jlaazel and the Pbilhartnonia 

was taken a step, nearer comple- 
tion , on Sunday with the 
mysterious, marvellous Seventh. 
The- .symphony; has not yet 
J suffered the intense over- 
: exposure to which the otbers are 
j currently prey, probably because 
j of the nine it is the most diffi- 
cult to pin down, in atmosphere, 
and. in' balance of its five very 
different movements. 

Except for one or two rather 
mean-sounding passages for high 
violins, the Philharmonia account 
of the work was impressively 
well : played— Mr. JUaazel's skill 
in controlling large orchestral 
forces has often been remarked 
before, and was. evident once 
again. He -laid out the score 
cleanly; there .was. an always 
functional understanding . of the 
tempo proper to the. character 
and .the. shape .of- each ' of - the 
movements. Nothing lazy and 
hasty niarted'.tbe performance. 
And yet. to iny ears, it was un- 
commonly plain, lacking for most 


of its course the qualities- of 
•specific colouring (was Mahler’s 
mastery in finding for each 
movement of: a large symphony 
its own definite atmospheric 
colouring ever greater than in 
this work? i or Free delight in its 
myriad picturesque sound inven- 
tions. 

The second of The - two “ Night 
Music* 1 movements, the Andante 
amoroso, summed up the 
approach. 1 longed for the con- 
ductor to - treat each of its 
instrumental components more 
lovingly, lo render into warmer 
softer colours its extraordinary 
fusion of bucolic good humour 
and romance, yet. in point of 
clarity, balance, and purposeful 
forward movement, I could 
hardly fault his direction of -it 
The. fifth (and' final), movement 
usually causes- most . of the 
listener's problems with the 
work . Strangely.- it was Mr. 
■Maazel’s most striking success, 
not the galumphing romp ft has 
sometimes seemed but a well- 
ordered Rondo rich in incident, 
a holiday movement in C' major 
with more - than a touch of 
Wagner's Johannistag about it. 


Now save even 
copying time an 
with the new Oc 



Here’s how: 



Now the Qc6 1700 is a complete range to give you more choices to suit you r oariiculs: 
copying needs. This system also saves you hours of wasted secretariat and c lerical tin-:-. 

Oce 1700 

The Oce 1700 is the classic in its field - gives you high-quality copies regularly ana r-ceds 
very little maintenance and service. 

Oce 1 700 with document feeder 

The Oce 1700 is a fast copier turning out up to 37 copies per minute. The Oce 1700 ■ ; ' r 
document feeder speeds things up even more . . . you save up to 10 seconds per origin*, vk.' 

. ou're-aiways sure your original is placed correctly on Ihe machine. No more crooked o'. 

Oce 1700 with choice of sorter 

Another Pig lime- and monev-saver is the Oce 1700 with sorte r . 'i nu 
have a choice of etihera 20-bin ora 30-bin sorter - both easvtc operate 
ara as reliable 3 & the very reliable Oc£ 1700 iiself. Normailv n would lake a 
secretary fwo or in ret- hours io collate 30 copies of a 40-oage document o', 
nand. Collating with the Cce 1700 with sorter requires no lime a! all The 
sorting is finished when the copying is finished. Over a period ol a year this 
lime saving adds up to a sizeable amount ol money. 

Oce 1700 with document feeder and sorter 

• When you order the Oce 1700 plain paper copier with document feeder 
and a sorter you have chosen a complete, new kind of copying flexibility that 
gi ves you quality, speed and reliability white saving you time and money, 

Makes sense, doesnl iL

terms and necessary freedom of 
action for unpopular decisions. 

Perhaps his most significant 
gain was to free the company 
from the "good behaviour” 
clauses under which the release 
Of state finance was conditional 
upon performance. Once broad 
.programmes . have been given 
approval by the National 
Enterprise Board and Parlia- 
! n £ nt ’ u * s f,>r Bie BL board to 
take the commercial decisions. 

The chairman’s position is also 
enhanced by the fact that the 
(aovenunent can detect political 
advantage in taking a strong 
line on Leyland: the continued 
failure of the state-owDed con- 
cern to take advantage of its 
oppo rtunities, has eroded public 
sympathy for the -workforce, 
and increased -support for pay 
restraint 

Perhaps the best indication of 
the commercial freedom that 
Mr. Edwardes has won for him- 
self was the decision to dose 
the Speke assembly plant on 
Merseyside, with the loss of 
-3.000 jobs. Such a move in an 
area of high unemployment and 
of traditional support for the 
Labour Party was regarded as 
unthinkable by a number of 
Mr. Edwardes’ advisers. 

Few shop stewards believe Mr. 
Edwardes would now meet with 
any government interference in 
closure proposals. The trade 
unions within a state-owned 
company find themselves con- 
fronted by an employer who 
can not only threaten an invest- 
ment freeze and a cut in jobs 
but can also draw authority 
from the Government in sup- 
port of his 5 per cent pay offer. 

. It is against this negotiating 
background that the walk-out 
by 3,500 at Drews Lane should 


be viewed. The dispute repre- 
sents, admittedly in an extreme 
form, the issues confronting 
Mr. Edwardes in raising UK 
productivity levels to those of 
continental competitors: the 
problem of the wildcat strike 
and the legacy of slipshod work 
practices. 

Management presented the 
broad details of its proposed 
pay den! to sbop stewards at 
10 am more titan a week ago. 
By 3 pm the same day. and 
before any explanation or the 
benefits on offer to the work- 
force had been possible, a some- 
what confused mass meeting 
voted tu walk out next day. 

The reason why the Drews 
Lane men ‘•walked” at a time 
when the big plants like Long- 
bridge and Cowley were pre- 
pared to consider the company's 
offer owes something to tradi- 
tion. Because of its strategic role 
as a supplier of a wide range 
of components, particularly 
suspension and steering systems, 
the factory has always exerted 
considerable muscle at Austin- 
Morris. Within days of the last 
big strike there in 1974. manage- 
ment conceded the workers’ 
demands. 

There was a clear, if some- 
what naive belief among some 
Drews Lane stewards that Mr. 
Edwardes was susceptible -to 
pressure. The fact that the 
stoppage has had such an 
immediate impact upon produc- 
tion is in large measure due 
to stock shortages following 
a series of disputes during the 
past two months. 

Production workers at Drews 
Lane found that under the 
"measured day work” system 
of payment introduced 10 years 
ago, it was possible to perform 


the allotted tasks comfortably 
within the eight hour day and 
go home anything between a 
few min utes to three hours 
early. 

In recent weeks management 
has cracked down on abuses of 
rbe system and it i-laims that 
the plant was working “almosi 
normally" before the walkout. 
The fact the* such practices 
existed., however, is u serious 
indictment of the way succes- 
sive BL. managements have 
operated the day work system. 

In theory, industrial engi- 
neers— -better known as " the 
rim p and motion men "—carry 
out an objective measurement 
of how long operations should 
take and payment is made 
accordingly.' Dl practice, how- 
ever’ shop stewards Tend to 
intervene and haggle about the 
price for the job much us 
under the eld piece-work system 
of payment The faci that some 
groups of workers were able to 
complete their duties up tc» 
three hours before the end nf 
the day is an indication of bow 
far weak managements were 
prepared to compromise about 
standards in a plant known to 
be crucial to production 
schedules. 

Mr. Edwardes ha> warned the 
workers that a strike lasting 
half as long as the current six- 
week stoppage at Ford Motor 
could put a large part of the 
car operations beyund re- 
covery.” .' Hopes of ending the 
Drews Lane dispute must rest 
with the leadership of the 
Amalgamated Union of Engi- 
neering Workers: the Birming- 
ham Blast District Committee 
has already instructed the men 
to return to work. Failure to 
get official backing for the dis- 
pute is bound to increase unrest 


among those members who felt 
the walkout precipitate. Col- 
lapse of the Drews Lane strike 
would hp a serious blow to the 
militants and make it very diffi- 
cult for shop stewards at plants 
like Lun-bridge and Cowley — 
who have adopted a more cir- 
cumspect response to the com- 
pany pay offer— to stage similar 
action. 

The length of lhe stoppage 
will he crucial to the damage 
inflicted upon the company. 

Jaguar. Rover. Triumph (JRT) 
is less dependent upon Drews 
Lane and may not be affected 
Tur another week or so. Many 
dealers report that BL stocks are 
currently higher than for several 
years and that the dispute, pro- 
vided it is settled quickly should 
cause no .serious problems. The 
principal BL fear is that publi- 
city surrounding the strike will 
damage confidence among custo- 
mers and distributors which is 
already fragile. 

Most groups 

Management must hope that 
any disruption will be confined 
to Drews Lane because the pay 
package on offer is tailored to 
meet the aspirations of most 
groups of workers. In addition 
to the 5 per cent annual wage 
increase, most employees will 
also receive " parity ” payments 
back-aaied to the beginning of 
thi* month. The programme to 
achieve parity — the same wage 
for lhe same job regardless of 
plant — by November i next year 
must be self - financing and the 
company is therefore seeking 
7,000 voluntary redundancies. 

For Drews Lane the 5 per 
cent plus a parity payment 
would mean an immediate in- 
crease for production workers 



uf nearly £3 a week 10 £79.95. 
and for skilled men a rise of 

£8.50 to £85. The benefits avail- 
able to skilled workers under 
the parity programme should 
do . much to erode support for 
the militant campaign led by 
Mr. Roy Fraser and his unofficial 
Toolmakers’ Committee. At 
Longbridge and Cowley, plants 
with large toolrooms, skilled 
men wili gel an immediate 
increase of around £10 a week. 

Much public attention has 
focused upon the militant noises 
from stewards at Cowley and 
Longbridge in pursuit of 
demands for increases well over 
30 per cenL But as they are 
twn of the lower paid plants, 
they stand to gain ri«es for 
production workers nf around £8 
a week. Nor will the top rate 
factories, sueh as Jaguar and 
Triumph, at Coventry, lose out: 
the company 5 proposed new 
five-grade pay structure should 
ensure additional increases of 
around £2 a Week fur many 
workers. 

Details- of where voluntary 
redundancies will be required 
and how performance must be 
improved in order to finance 
parity are now being circulated 
within plants. Mr. Bill McLean. 
BL cars employee relations 
director, bas stated firmly: “We 
want to pay. more but any 
increase has to be earned. But 
we make no apology for tlvaL” 

There , is likely to be no 
shortage of volunteers rn leave. 
The problem, as Leyland dis- 
covered in the -past, is how to

No seat at 
the cinema 

From Mr..-D. Hdwson 
- Sir.— Nigel Andrews, in his 
article (November 10 1 on the 
London Film Festival, suggests 
several films ^ Which he labels as 
“■ required viewing. ’’—I only wish 
-it were -possible to view them. 

I have been a member of the 
National Film Theatre for very 
many years but in 1976 and 19* f 
did not manage to purebasi one 
ticket for any film of my choice 
at the festival even' though i 
asked for single tickets at a wide 
selection of films. 

This yea?, being a very great 
fan of Borowczyk, I thought J 
would be clever and ensure at 
least one ticket by only asking 
for a single seat at his film 
“Behind Convent Walls — for 
the third year running my cheque 
was returned With a polite regret 
notice. How can “required 
viewing** be implemented.

Above average 
intelligence 

From Mr. B. Cple 
■ Sir, — Fortunately the. employ- 
ment-problem is not as hopeless 


as Mr. Lisney (Not. 9) fears. An 
excess of job openings suitable 
only for above averagely intelli- 
gent people would perhaps be a 
problem, but is unlikeTy to exist. 
. “Skilled labour” does not 
necessarily need high intelli- 
gence. Indeed, “intelligence” is 
not usefully treated as a single 
characteristic, any more than 
“skill ” is. Skills are acquired by 
learning and practice: this needs 
motivation and application 
father than intelligence. 

The way to provide motivation 
is lo.set the. people free, to allow 
the market to .operate by increas- 
ing the differentials between 
Skilled and . unskilled labour. 
Reduce government interference 
in the market, .end the monopoly 
power o£ trade unions, and we 
may not need job creation 
schemes or a four-day week.

Transport in 
London 

From the Leader. 

Greater London Council 

Sir,— It seems a little surpris- 
ing that Nigel Seyinef (November 
9) in . calling again for a 
balanced transport programme 
for London should ignore that 
(in the plimiing stages at least) 
it now. exists. : 

He- does mx -much- like tbe rail 

tunnel proposal for Woolwich or 
the. completion of the Jubilee 
Line through' ..docklands; he even 
questions whether the first car. 
stand bn Its own, although I can 
assure him that it does — in terms 
of ' planning: transportation, and 
finance. - • • •• 

What- be -mfsses is that the 
Greater -Loudon Council’s road 
and . industrial assistance pro- 
gramme over' the next 15 years 
amounts- to Ei.lbn and the public 
transport programme (excluding 
the Jubilee.Line) to a little less. 
This strikes me at least as -being 
a reasonable balance. . 

The reads programme includes 
many of the improvements in 
docklands that he puts forward. 
What if dofes not and will not 
do is to cater for massive inner 
city road building (at motorway 
standards, perhaps?) which I 
suspeel is what he wants to see. 

If the Jubilee Line is taken 
nut of docklands strategy the 
whole {plan falls apart, years of 
work are wasted, and millions 
go down, the drain. 1 am not 
prepared to . allow people who 
can discern, only the 1 individual 
strands and not the partem of 
The whole thread to' sabotage the 
greatest social and economic 
opportunity London bas ever bad 
in modern' .tubes; .7 will therefore 
continue to oppose the “ roads 
at' all costs” brigade.

Transferring 


pensions 


From Mr R. B ankes Jones 
Sir.— Michael Brown l Novem- 
ber 10 > and other? on the subject 
of pension transfers might find 
tbs followiae actual examples of 
interot. One person worked 
eieht tears for an industrial con- 
cern: another some three and a 
half years for a nationalised 
industry. Both were around the 
age of 30 and a bit apart in 
salary. Simultaneous transfers 
to the same private sector fund 
would secure one year two 
months' back service to the eight 
year person and four and 3 
half years’ back service to the 
three and a half year oersoo. • 
The ' difference (unknown' to 
the individuals) looks usly at the 
receiving end. but is entirely due 
to wide divergence of urovision 
at the exporting ends. Tt could 
he that in equity (not for uni-, 
fnnnity) the industrial concern is 
mean and should do more: and 
that the nationalised concern can 
afford too mneb and should do 
less.

Thirlmere and 
Haweswater 

From .)lr. A. Huplies 
Sir.— Mr- R. Camplin (Nov- 
ember 10) refers to the rights of 
“lovers of the Lake District” in 
his plea for recreational facili- 
ties on and around the lakes of 
Tbirlmere and Haweswater. - 
I wonder if he fully appre- 
ciates how all the facilities, such 
as car parks, roundabouts, lay- 
bys. garases. toilets, snack bats, 
souvenir shops, caravan sites and 
litter bins, would automatically 
proliferate if the two large and 
centrallv situated lakes were to 
be made available In the way 
he 'ugeests. 

Far too many people seem to 
proclaim themselves as “lovers 
of the Lake District ” while, 
albeit unwittingly, constantly 
eliminating the natural life, 
sishts and sounds of this beauti- 
ful oari of England.

are pointing out to workers that

The prospect of slifl higher

high for shop stewards in their 
present mood. The company is 
saying that if there is parity in 
pay then- should al?i« be parity 
in effort: industrial engineer-, 
should be allowed to begin to 
standardise work measurement 
throughout all 36 factories. 

At the inoracnT. a* at Drews

Sir.— A further slaht to the

pany to -receive his funds. If he

Symmetry of 
obligation 

From Mr. J. Richardson. 

Sir. — If pay policy is to be 
“ enforced ” by the application 
of some kind of government 
sanction on the employer, it is 
clear that the ultimate sufferer 
from sueh punishment is the 
ordinary shareholder. - -I do not 
suggest that he has any special 
ground for complaint about this 
— “his” management must do 
its best for him in conditions as 
they are, and if continued pro- 
duction with sanctions is the 
better option, then management 
is entitled to choose it Even a 
collective bargain, however, has 
to have two sides to it Why Is 
there, no corresponding penalty 
on union funds when their man- 
agements break the same guide- 
line? Symmetry of obligation is.

( /ncorporoted in the Republic of South Africa) 


Address by the Chairman, Mr. Ian Greig, at the 
Annual General Meeting held on November 13, 197& 


Ladies and Gentlemen, since the lasc annual general 
meeting our Company has changed its name from 
Bisnopsgace Platinum Limited to Impafa Platinjm 
Holdings Limited ilmplars). it has increased »:s 
share capital substantial!/ and has acquired the 
entire share capital of impala Platinum Limited, 
{here have been major changes in the composition 
of the board of directors, there has been a change 
in Secretaries and at the end of this meeting there 
will be a change in Auditors. Finall/. m tne course 
of all these rearrangements of our affairs, there 
has also been a change in the chairmanship of the 
Company which is why I am presiding at this 
meeting instead of Mr. K. C: Whyte. 

These changes and the recent hectic state of 
the platinum market call for some comment 

I am glad that it proved possible to consolidate 
the effective equity interests of the different share- 
holders in impala Platinum Limited into a single 
company instead of their being divided, as was 
formerly the case, between shareholders having a 
direct interesr in rhe Company and those having 
only an indirect interest through their holdings in 
Bishopsgate Platinum. All shareholders are now on 
all-fours with each other and through their holdings 
in Implats have an equitable interest not only .n 
dividends declared by Impala Platinum but also in 
the earnings and assets of that company. Because 
of ics broader base I would expect Implats to carry 
a somewhat better market rating than was formerly 
the case with Bishopsgare Platinum Impala 
Platinum riself will continue to be the principal 
operating company within the group and rhe new 
arrangements will not in. any way affect ics con- 
tractual or other obligations to its customers or 
providers of loan finance. 


elusion of this meeting. Messrs Cooper 8 Lybrand 
will be appointed Auditors to the Company One 
is sorry at this ending of a long connection between 
rhe Company and Peat. Marwick. Mitchell & Co. 
and Vaughan. Key & Payne but it was an inevitable 
consequence of the reconstruction. 


Platinum Market 


Directorate and Administration 

It seemed desirable that the boards of directors 


of Implats and Impala Platinum should be identical 
and accordingly during the year under review 
Messrs. R. C. Boveli. G. V. Cooper. A. G. Joynt. 
E, Pavirr. A. T. Shadforth. P. j. van Rooy and 
K. H. Wallis were appointed to rhe Board of 
Implats and on August 30. 1478, Messrs S. K. C 
Whyte. P. T Clark. R. A. Wheeler and R. J. K. 
Winkler resigned as directors. These latter gentle- 
men had ail rendered sterling service ro the Com- 
pany and l would like to record our appreciation 
and Eracitude. In particular.' _Mr. Whyte. had been 
chairman of Bijhopsgate Platinum from its inten- 
tion and also played a major part in the develop- 
ment of Impala Platinum. 

For administrative reasons, in view 0 f >he ricte 
relation between Implats and Impala Platinum, it 
was also desirable that both companies should have 
the same Secretaries and rhe same Auditors, this 
situation was accepted without hesitation by 
Messrs. Vaughan. Key & Payne who resigned as 
Secretaries to the Company in favour of Union 
Corporation Limited and by Peat. Marwick. Mitcneli 
8 Co who immediately signified that they would 
not seek reappointment as Auditor* a: the con. 


In my Statement of September 12. 1978. as 
chairman of Impala Platinum. I pointed out tha: 
from September 1977 there had been increasing 
firmness in the platinum marker so that at the 
date oF the statement the producer price stood at 
S250 per ounce and platinum waj being traded cn 
the free market at 5261 per ounce. From rhen until 
the end of October there was a continued, almost 
frenetic, upward movement in the price on the 
free market and on the futures market so that 
on October 31. against a producer price of S260 
per ounce, platinum was trading on the free 
market at an ali-time high of 5393 per ounce and 
on the same day. on tne New York Mercantile 
Exchange, the highest trade for the spot month of 
January 1979 was S390 per ounce. During rhis 
period the volume of trading on che New York 
Mercantile Exchange was exceptionally high, 
amounting on occasions co over 4.000 contracts per 
day. equivalent ro over 200.000 ounces 

I do nor believe, as has been suggested from 
time :o time, that this dramatic rise in prices was 
the result of a shortage of supply in relation to 
a major increase in demand by end-users and 
fabricators. I beiie/e it stemmed largely from the 
persistent and growing weakness of the U.S dollar 
and the constant flight by investors and speculators 
out of dollars and dollar equities into commodities, 
including platinum, in an endeavour to maintain 
the value of their savings in real terms. This belief 
is borne out by the fact tha: following the 
announcement by the US. Administration that it 
was taking serious steps :o defend the U.S. dollar, 
prices moved sharply downwards. There has been 
considerable fluctuation since then but on Friday 
iast rhe closing settlement price on the New York 
Mercantile Exchange for the spot month of 
January 1 979 was S3 17 and this morning physical 
metal is trading on the free market at SJ23 per 

ounce 


Once people are satisfied that the dollar is 
realistically valued, or is under-valued, in reUtian 
to the strength of rhe U.S. economy and in 
relation to other currencies, the former trend is 
likely to be reversed with a substantial movement 
out of commodities, including platinum, back into 
dollars, a process which would be encouraged by 
the present high level of interest rates in rhe 
U.5.A. Thus wc could well see a further decline 
in prices for platinum on the free market and on 
the New York Mercantile Exchange. 


Platinum Supply and Demand 


believe *fHa> "sappily 'and consumption in rhe tradi- 
tional sectors flf. the platinum industry are more 
or less in balance, partly as a result of an improve- 
ment in demand and partly as a result of a 
reduction in supply of which the main cause has 
been a reduction in sales oi U.S.S.R. platinum co 
the West, chough the recent [apan import statistics 
suggest that the flow of platinum of U.S.S.R. origin 
to Japan is increasing again. But che supply/demand 
situation has been obscured by rhe vigorous 

intrusion into the market of a new buyer, namely 
the investor/specuiaror. who has been bidding 

against the traditional consumers to acquire 
platinum as a hedge. Were rhis metal to be 

released to the market f believe much of the 

present rightness m rhe supply/demand equation 
would be eased. The platinum producers have no 
obligation to provide metal on favourable terms 
to meet the demand of investors or speculators, 
particularly as rhis metal is liable to be thrown 
back on. to rhe market ar rhe first sign of a 
recession in industrial demand. However, it is in 
their long-term interests to ensure that platinum 
is available for industrial users and manufacturers 
of jewellery. If 1 am wrong in my assessment of 
the present supply /demand situation and there is 
already a. real shortage of platinum in rhe world 
or if one is likely to develop in the relatively near 
furure. and this docs seem possible, then rhe 
South African producers, as che only primary 
producers in the world, should expand production 
ro meet the requirements of genuine end-users 
and fabricators provided-— and this is an important 
proviso— they can do so with confidence of being 
able :o achieve a worthwhile return on tho capital 
which they will have to invest. 

Unless they do so platinum will not maintain 
its present role as a metal of fundamental import- 
ance in a number of industrial applications and as 
a metal for jewellery in japan and elsewhere. If 
end-users and fabricators are starved of material 
or are forced to buy make-up metal on the free 
market at exorbitant prices they will redouble 
their present research efforts co finding substitutes 
for platinum or means of using less platinum in 
their existing applications. The chances of research 
continuing for new usages for platinum would also 
be substantially diminished. 

This question of matching production to demand 
U under constant review by Ihe senior executives 
of Impala Platinum and by the board. Minor 
adjustments in the rate of production, within the 
limits of present mine and refinery capacity, can 
be made relatively easily and quickly— within a 
matter of weeks or months. But the lead time 
for any worthwhile increase in production which 
requires an expansion of mine and rrfinrry capacity 
rs three to four years and rhe eapiral requirement: 
for -his are a formidable deierrenr a;ain$- making 
quick decision* because of th« present state of the 
platinum .market.

able were little changed at

Exchange Rates 

As has bean our practice the results for the quarter and the first nine months and the comparative figures f :r 1 377 have been calculated ar * 

comparable rates of exchange. These are based on £1=FI.4.36=U55 1.91. which were the closing rates c-f 1 977. Total Concern profit attributable j 
to ordinary capital for the current quarter and the first nine months has also bean recalculated at the rates of exchange current at the end cf 
September 1 978 being based on £1«= Ff. 4.1 7= L1SS 1.96. 


RESULTS 

(n the third quarter of 1 978 total sales value was 
9% higher than m the eorresponoing quarter or 
1 977. Of this about 6% arose from increased 
volume. 

In Europe results from the edible fats, frozen 
products and detergents businesses were again 
well above those of the corresponding quarter of 
lastyear.The to:iet preparations businesses faced 
poor demand; results for the quarter were lower 
than in 1 977. In our industrial businesses results 
from chemicals showed an improvement but 
those of paper, plastics and packaging were 
lower than in the same, quarter of 1977.Animal 
feeds did well. 

In North America total results were below thoss 
of the corresponding 1 377 quarter, party 
because of neevy advertising expenditure for the 

introduction o: new products by Lever Brothers. 

National Starch figures have been included as 
from 1 5:h August. 1978, making a worthwhile 
contribution safes and operating profit though 
there were higher interest charges which diose 
principally from the loan to finance the . 

acquisition. 

The UAG fniemailonefgroiiD cnee agatn 
achieved gooo results. Whilst associated 
companies continued to make a satisfactory 
contribution. i«s favourable economic 
conditions i.n Nigeria are beginning to show 
their effect on our businesses. Sales and profits 
in other overseas countries continued to be very 
good, with sigruffcaht contributians'from 
detergents, edible fats end toilet preparations. 


DIVIDENDS 

The Boards today declared interim dividends in - 
respect of 1 978 on the Ordinary capitals at the 
following rates which are equivalent m value at 
today's rate of exchange in terms of the 
Eaualisalion Agreement between the two 
comoames: 


LIMITED 

per 25p Ordinary share 8.52p (1 977 :7.64p) 


per FI. 20 Ordinary capital 

FI. 3.40 (1 977 : FI. 3.40) 

In the esse cf N.V. the interim dividend will be 
paio on 21st December, 197E. 

Of LIMiTED's interim dividend, an amount of 
5.20p per share will te paid on 22nd December, 
“ 978 to shareholders registered on £th 
December. 1378. 

N.V.’s interim dividend is equivalent to th* 
interim dividend for 1 977. The weakening of. the 
£ sterling against the guilder gives riss to a 
higher interim dividend in LIMITED. 

The balance of LIMITED*s 1 978 interim dividend, 
amounting to 3.32p per snare, and the deferred! 
balance of 1977 and earlier dividends amounting 
to 25.54p per share making a total of 2B.86p per 
share, will be paid, when circumstances permit 


to holders of Ordinary capita! now in issue

Dawson International. the 
luxury yams and knitwear sroup. 
yesterday un celled a revised 
agreed £24-&ra cash and share 
offer for John Haggas. the York- 
shire yam spinner, which it hopes 
will put an end to a triangular 
takeover melee -that becan two 
months ago and included a bid 
for Dawson by William Baird, its 
major shareholder. 

Dawson is now issuing five of 
its shares (before adjusting for 
the scrip issue) for e\«?ry nine 
Hangas shares compared with two 
for three under the first scheme. 
An unchanged lOOp cash «•* also 
being paid for each Haggas 
share. . . 

William Baird intervened, to 
prevent the previous merger 
being completed because it felt 
the proposals favoured Haggas 
shareholders, It Ls not known, 
how Baird wifi react to the latest 
offer but Mr. Stanley Field. Baird's 
chairman and a director of 
Dawson, was notified of the pro- 
posals last Friday. - Mr. Donald 
Par. his alternate on the Dawson 
Board, attended yesterday's meet- 
ing which ratified the new offer. 
There is no Indication that he 
either opposed the new terms or 
obstained from voting. 

Mr. Alan Smith, Dawson’s chair- 
man said that he was not antici- 
pating any opposition to the 
revised terms. "Had Eaird been 
going to oppose them, it would 
have said so today,” he said. 

Based on a price before suspen- 
sion of 179p for -Dawson, the 
latest offer values -Hacgas shares 
at 199jp compared with the price 
of 2Q5p under the original pro- 
posals. Haggas is forecasting a 
full year pre-tax profit of not less 
than £4 -8m which gives a fully 
taxed prospective exit p 'e of 10.8. 
Haggas 's balance sheet includes 
112.4m of gilts. If this is stripped 
out and the interest earned 
deducted from the pre-tax profits, 
the exit p/e is S.6. 

Under the offer, Haggas share- 
holders will receive 10 ordinary 


Dawson shares f equivalent to" five 
Dawson shares prior to the scrip 
issue) and' £9 cash for every nine 
Haggas shares they own. Members 
of the Haggas family, who own 
5.823,720 shares, have agreed to 
forego Dawson dividends declared 
before April 1. 1980. Remaining 
shareholders will not get the 
Dawson - interim, payable in 
January, but the new shares will 
rank part passu with existing 
shares in all other respects. 
Haggas shareholders are entitled 
to the Haggas final dividend which 
is payable on November 27. 

Irrevocable acceptances have 
been given covering 50:54 per cent 
oE the Haggas capital and the 
Board of Haggas, together with 
Singer and Friedlander, its finan- 
cial advisers, are recommending 
that shareholders accept

The City 






7 


IAL is an organisationjjpon which, in some 
measure, a great many of- the worlds institutions rely: 
for many different reasons. 

Data communications is a case in point; a field in 
which IAL is a world leader. 

Lloyds Underwriters, for example, utilize IAL data 
transmission equipment in their day-to-day dealings. 

As do most of Britain's clearing banks; and various 
other financial organisations that the British refer to 
when they talk of 'the City' 

in all aspects of communication IAL is an 
innovator: its track record is brilliant. Police an 
emergency services in the United Kingdom ana 


Canada, and vehicle fleets in the United States and 
Belgium,, use a revolutionary computer-based IAL system. 

IAL communications serve the oil industry, and the 
great international construction companies. They serve 
defence ministries and, more and more, provide nations 
with the sophisticated telecommunications services 
essential for economic development 

In aviation technical services the IAL capability is 
total. Unique. Its superiority, in terms of efficiency, cost 
effective operation arid-sheer professionalism, 
unquestioned. Airlines worldwide avail themselves of 
IAL sen/ices, and seventy-five airports across four 
continents. Not to mention. numerous off-shore 
helicopter platforms and the airstrips in remote 
exploration areas which depend on IAL beacons as 
navigation aids. 

Aviation, industry, commerce, banking finance, 
transport, public utilities, governments, IAL serves them 
ail -and more; reliably, dependably, brilliantly. Can IAL 
serve you?

SHAREHOLDERS In Elswick- 
Hoppcr arc warned that there

year on the £l.0om achieved in 
1977-78. although in the Oral ball 
of the- current year they are up 
from- £330JWO to £45 J. 000. 

The director*, explain that a 
shortfall could arise unless 
demand for agricultural 
machinery shows a marked upturn 
in the final half. Nevertheless, all 
companies are in excellent shape 
and able lo lake advantage of any 
upturn in market conditions 
Agricultural and engineering 
divisions both had a successful 
half-year. Despite a recession in 
agricultural machinery. Turnover 
has been maintained at last year's 
levels but at somewhat lower 
margins. 

Business has been brisk in both 
bicycle companies. Turnover and 
profits arc also being maintained 
at Picador Engineering. 

With the rights issue in June, 
the. directors forecast a minimum 
dividend of 04)9p net per 5p share. 
They have declared an interim of 
0.45p (0.4p) and expect to recom-

A 

5129.6m in net earnings for

Bendix Corporation, the anto 
and aerospace and forest 
products group, reflected a 
similar Increase in sales, 
which totalled S3.63bo. Share 
earnings moved up from 
$529 to $5.74. 

The final quarter produced 
net earnings of S29.3m or

on sales increased by 14.5 
per cent to 3945.5m. 

Net earnings for both 
periods were Increased by 
one cent a share by a gain on 
the French subsidiary’s sale 
or a substantial share of Us 
interest in its Ducellier unit, 
partly offset by provision for 
loss on the sale of Bendix 
Home Systems. 

Bendix expects earnings to 
be favourably affected by its 
investment In Asarco in 
fiscal 1979, when it will begin 
accounting for that investment 
by the equity method. 

It bought 4.3m shares or 
about 18.4 per cent of Asarco's 
outstanding common last 
spring. 

Bendix also said its aero- 
space-electronics and forest 
products businesses accounted 
for most of its increase in net 
for the fiscal year ended lsat 
September.

* 


BY CHARLES BATCHELOR IN AMSTERDAM 




BY JOHN WICKS 


ZURICH. Nov. 13. 


FINANCIAL RESULTS of the 
Union Bank of Switzerland will 
this year be -more than 10 per 
cent under 1977 figures, accord- 
ing to managing director Dr. 
Robert Hoizach. This decline, 
resulting from a fail in income 
and a simultaneous increase in 
costs, would mean that operating 
profits would also be over 10 
per cent below budgeted levels. 
Budgeting for next year would 
be “ extremely cautious." be 
said. 

In 1977. UBS net profits rose 
by 13.7 per cent to SFr 226m 
f 5163m), and total assets by 6.6 
per cent to SFr 56.12bn. The 
bank's operating earnings for the 


third quarter and first nine 
months this year were over 10 
per cent below last year's 
figures. 

Dr. Holzach drew attention 
particularly to the drop in 
interest margins, which he said 
was not likely to be reversed by 
tbc end of the year. Rank 
interest rales were able to be 
adjusted only with a time lag 
after decreases in active interest. 
No marked upswing in margins 
was likely nest year. 

The managing director. Dr. 
Nikolaus Sean, said that the 
bank did not foresee any increase 
in its share capital next year. 
However, two conversion issues 
would be made to cover the 


redemption of maturing bonds, 
and two new -money bond would 
be issues floated. 

With regard to the planned 
sum to be raised on the Swiss] 
capital market by the U.S., Dr.] 
Sena said that this was likely j 
la be a "relatively targe 
amount " of short- and medium- ; 
term paper. The "National Bank ] 
would, however, probably act to' 
prevent too great an influence: 
on domestic interest rates. This. ! 
he indicated, might mean that I 
short-term issues with two to : 
three year maturities could bei 
placed by way of banks and. 
medium-term share of up to five 
years offered directly to the ' 
public. 1

Aerospace groups await a lead 


By Our Own Correspondent 

ZURICH. No'- 

SWITZERLAND’S leading 
watch company, Allgemcitio 
Schweizerische Uhreninduslrie 
AG (ASUAG), views the 
present financial vear "more 
pessimistically " than 1977-78, 
when it raised net profits from 
SwFr 4m to SwFr 5m ( SC. 1 mi- 
lt is paying an unchanged 
S per cent dividend for the past 
year to Jnne 30, which saw a 
rise in group turnover of 12.3 
per cent to SwFr 1.17bn. 

Group operations in the first 
half of calendar 1978 showed 
an improvement on autumn of 
last year. However, business 
began to show a downturn in 
May and June, and the group 
has recently been reporting its 
concern at the level of orders 
since then.

BONN. Nov. 13. 


WITH BRITAIN'S re-entry into 
the European Airbus consortium, 
the West German aerospace 
industry has seen its most 
important immediate concern 
satisfactorily resolved, and is 
now turning its full attention to 
an issue that may take even 
more time, patience and skilful 
negotiation — its own future 
shape. 

It now looks unlikely that the 
long-discussed merger of the 
industry's two largest companies. 
Messerschmitt - Boelkow ■ Blohm 
OfBBi and Vereinigte Flugtech- 
nlsche-AVerke-Fokkcr is going to 
take place this year. The Bonn 
Governments co-ordinator for 
the industry. Slate Secretary 
Herr Marion Gruener of the 
Economics Ministry, may there- 
fore need to be patient some 
time longer before his objective 
of a “ national industry ” with 
the single voice of its British or 
French counterparts can be put 
in place. 

Behind what appears at the 
official level to be a deadlock, 
however, there are some sien? 
that the talks between the two 
compares and the Government 
may be slowly starting to clear 
some of the obstacles to a 
merger out of toe way. As a 
result, some knowledgable people 
in the industry are now hoping 
that Herr Gruener will give a 
fresh lead when he appears 
before the Bundestag - * I Lower 
House of Parliament"! Budget 
Committee larer this month to 
request supplementary funds for 
the Airbus programme. 


Change 


The main change in recent 
months .'is that all Dartres are 
now reported to agree that VFW- 
Fokkcr. hailed as a pioneering 
cross-frontier merger a decade 
ago. will have to be unscrambled 


The group’s own policy is still 
officially in favour of keeping the 
two sides together. But some 
observers are expecting next 
month's meeting of the super 
visor* board to vote in favour of 
returning Fokker to its Dutch 
shareholders and VFW to its 
German ones. 

Moreover, the new Dutch ton 
management is known to have 
its eyes on hilarerai co-operation 
with DassauJt-Brequet of France 
in a series of deals which would 
be crowned bv joint development 
of the Fokker F2B — perhaps with 
Rolls-Royce contributinc its 
RB-432 engine if the British 
goremment could be persuaded 
to plough in development 
finance. 

On the German side, however, 
there has for several vears been 
suspicion of the Dutch half of 
the partnership, and increasing 
agreement that this particular 
irritant could be removed if the 
talks with MBB were confined to 
arrans'ng a merger only with 
the VFW half of the srnup. 

While there, may still be some 
cause for regretting the nrohable 
ending of the transnational 
experiment it is likely that some 
cross-frontier co-operation and 
sub-contracting will continue ad 
hoc — though the recent hesita- 
tions in the Netherlands over 
joining in the Airbus programme 
make this less than a certain**-. 

Even without having to involve 
the Dutch in a "large solution." 
the bringing together or MBB 
and VFW promises to be ex- 
tremely delicate. What Herr 
Gruener and his officials have 
been hoping to see from a 
merger I* a rationalisation of the 
industry at the works level, with 
smaller and less economical 
U.-ilities closed down and the 
workforce reduced if need be. 
This view has heen broadly 
shared by MBB. which has been 


holding out not for a merger 
but for a takeover of VFW’s 
more viable plants such as its 
big Bremen factories, with the 
government picking up the bill 
and the political responsibility 
for closing down what it does! 
not want to buy. I 

Herr Gruener’s strategy. I 
dictated by Bonn's advocacy of : 
the market economy, has been) 
to let MBB and VFW get on with 
fixing the terms of their fusion. 
Despite new rop management in 
both companies, this approach 
has brought no agreement yet. 
VFW-Fokker has been attempt- 
ing to hold out for something 
better than what it regards as 
capitulation to IfBBs terms- 


The components division, 
headed by the Nenrchatel-based 
Ebauehes SA, is faced with 
considerable difficulties and is 
trying to arrange a reduction 
in operations with the trade 
union. 


Berlin plant closure 


Rescue 


In theory, it should be easy 
for Bonn to lean on VFW- 
Fokker a little, for last Dec- 
ember if rescued the group with 
a 1 financial package carrying 
tonsb conditions, after it was 
obl’aed to abandon the commer- 
cially unsuccessful VFW 614 
short-haul jet airliner. In 
practice. Herr Gruener has 
seemed loath to use this lever, 
and It may now be even harder 
for him to reach for it. 

For what has complicated the 
entire situation In recent months 
has been the involvement of 
state governments in both MBR's 
and VFW-Fokker? affairs. The 
Bavarian and Hamburg govern-, 
ments between th^m have some 
43 per cent of MBB. a major; 
employer in both Munich and 
Hamburg, while Bremen last 
August acquired control ovp- a 
26 4 per cent «t3ke in VFW- 
Fokker. This will- give rhe three 
States most directly concerned a 
right of veto in any new blue, 
print for the industry that might 
involve the loss of jobs. 


THE WEST German elec- 
tronics concern Loewe-Opta 
will close its West Berlin 
factory because it cannot 
compete with Japanese manu- 
facturers, Reuter reports from 
West Berlin. 

Five hundred workers will 
lose their . jabs when the 
factory, "which makes radios 
and parts for television sets, 
closes in mid-1979. 

A city government official 
said the. company had turned 
down its proposals for saving 
the factory because it was 
losing so much, money. 


: THE European Options Exchange 
(EOE) expects to list three 
! French slocks later this month, 
i Their names will probably be 
announced this week. Dr. Bert 
, Scholten. the EOE's managing 
.■director, said in an interview 
with the Financial Times. 

Late last week, the Bank of 
France gave its permission' for 
. French residents to trade options 
in foreign shares on markets 
i abroad: previously, the country's 
; foreign exchange controls pre- 
sented this. But French rari- 
j dents are still unable to trade 
! French share options on foreign 
I markets, such as Amsterdam or 
| Chicago, though non-residents 
jmav do so. 

The EOE is. meanwhile, still 
, talking with the West. German 
monetary and banking authori- 
ties in the hope of creating 
conditions favourable to German 
banks taking part in dealing. 
The EOE hopes for a break- 
through within a few months. 

A delegation from Hong Kong 
Is due to visit Amsterdam next 
month to discuss the listing -of 
options in Hong Kong stocks. 
This follows a visit by EOE 
officiate to the colony in October. 
A number of the EOE’s mem- 
bers have offices In Hong Kong, 
while one of Lbe largest broking 
houses, Sun Hung Kai Securities, 
has become a public order 
member of tbe EOE.

There are plenty of oppor- 
tunities for people »o talk to 
m.~ Mr. Dean said. "They can 
talk at a very early stage in the 
negotiations and as often, as they, 
like. We had lengthy discus- 
sions with Brooke Bond.” 

He said that since April. 1978! 
when the hoard wa? established 
and September. 1978. almost 
3.000 applications have been con- 
sidered. The bulk have been 
approved. Of the remainder, 841 
were approved with certain con- 
ditions attached and 19 were 
rejected outright. A further 95 
proposals were lorispd but with- 
drawn lor various reasons 
including a number because the 
companies involved indicated the 
requirements con'ld not be met 
There are _ no specific rules 
regarding investment in indus- 
trial stocks. Each case is treated 
on its merits. The test Is rather 
subjective in that the investors 
have to satisfy the board that 
there are considerable benefits 
which will flow from the j?ivin n 
up of Australian ownership. . * 
Benefits which the board seeks 
are fresh capital expenditure in 
Australia by the acquired sub- 
sidiary. introduction of new 
technology, opening up of new 
markets and giving the Austra- 
lian company access to overseas 
markets, creation of more jobs 
and providing the Australian 
company with stronger manage- 
ment. 

In the case of resource pro- 
jects. investors must satisfy a 
specific guideline of 50 per cent 
Australian equity in the case of 
most new projecls and 73 per 
cent local equity in the - case of 


new uranium invest mems. There 
is some flexibility in that a pro- 
posal will be considered if. the 
investors outline plans to gjve 
Australians a 75 per cent or 30 
per cem (depending on the -pro- 
ject) stake. 

Overseas investment has 
played a significant Vnle in the 
development of Australian in 
dustry. agriculture and resources.

a number of motorway lighting 
schemes are going ahead The 
company is also hoping to 
benefit from the switch which 
the Post Office will be making 
in the 1980s from wood to steel 
telephone poles; creating a 
large and continum? n^ w 
market. Petitjean ha:- won an 
initial order in the UK t,J -. for 
a new design of electricity 
pylon. A- single or H-shaped 
structure, it has 'already been 
introduced in France Mid 
could eventually change the 
appearance of the countryside 
by replacing.' the lattice towers 
which now- support bish voltage 
power lines. 

The sire of the UK market, 
which was after all already be- 
ing successfully penetrated by 
exports from franc 0 , was not 
the clincher .however An 
important attraction was the 
worldwide role pi a red hv 
British cons ultin '? enrmeers. 
The establishment of a British 
manufacturing base was seen 
as important in setting the 
company's products specified in 
some of the mamr con'rai-t? 
fnr which UK consultint eugin- 
eers are responsible in the: 
Middle East. Africa and Asia. 


TFiHj these opportunities 12 
mind both in Bntain and over- 


seas. Petitjeas's rbove into UK 
; manufacturing is going to be 
■ bold. -1 The French plant, which 
[ employs about 1J00 people. 

. can produce . 5,000 columns a 
. day and its British sister will 
1 build up within a few years 
to around 1.000 columns a day. 

Plant capacity 

The policy of the company. 
H. Golay points out- has always 
been one of investment well 
ahead of demand. Export orders 
when they come, can be ver* 
targe so the UK plant will have 
the capacity to meet them, and 
it will also be in a position to 
back up the French plant when 
it has a big order to deliver. 

The company has also con- 
sciously sought to concentrate 
its strength on the business it 
knows best — folding sheet steel 
into columns. It has’ resisted the 
temptation of moving into other 
street furniture such as bollards, 
crash harriers, and traffic signs, 
and has eschewed 9 move into 
lighting equipment itself, where 
it would be competing with the 
big companies it has to work 
with Wherp n ha? expanded >t 
has been almost entirely . into 
close! v allied fields, such as 
pylons, antennae maste. and 
flagpoles 

ft is a scale of operation and < 
single-mindednes 1 ? which sug- : 
vests the somewhat fragmented > 
GK industrv could be in for a 1 
blast of very keen competition. > 
The UK mdus tr- ronsiste of 1 
about a . dozen companies 1 
which the most important are < 
the British Steel Corporation ! 


’ and Concrete Utilities, with 
: BICC. Hem Co l. Fabrics*, and 
1 Ahairis a iso in the field. Para- 
. dwncally. the BSC makes cob-' 
i Crete as wen as tubular sheet 
columns, and also supplies smal- 
i ler comparues with tube, while 
Concrete Utilities 'is 'in sheet: 
and tubular steel as well as con-| 
crete. The Thorn -Group, a; 
major manufacturer of .light-! 
ing carried on the columnfi. aiso j 
has a stake through its Metel 
Developments subsidiary, which 
makes arummiam columns.^ 

It remains a puzzle to m. 
Golay that companies should be 
still making concrete or tubular 
steel at all. and for safety rea- 
sons alone he 15 convrriced the 
sheet column will-', take "over. 
Roughly 10 per cent of road 
fatalities, he points out. are 1 
caused by impact with -street

SwFr 1.6233. having touched 
SwFr 1.6383 during the day. 
-Similarly the D-mark touched 
DM 1.SA25 before closing at 
D.M I-88n0 compared with’ DM 
1.SS45 on Friday 

Using Morgan Guaranty figures 
at noon in New York-, the dollar's 
trade weighted average deprecia- 
tion narrowed slightly to ff.S-per 
cent from R.B per cent. Using 
Bank of England figures, its 
index - was unchanged -at S3.2. . . 

Sterling resisted the .various 
currency trends during the day 
and after opening at 62 . 1 . its. 
trade weighted index rose slightly 
to 62.2 at noon where it stayed 
for the closing calculation, un- 
changed from Friday. Against the 
dollar, sterling opened at S 1.9630 
and briefly touched S1.9RH0 before 
settling back tn SI.P6gU-lJUJ7:i.

previously. 

-FRANKFURT —The dollar was 
little changed at yesterday's 
fixing from Friday's 'level, at 
D.M J.SS7U compared with 
DM 1 6873. There was no inter- 
vention by the Bundesbank, the 
first time that this has happened 
since curly November - and this 
tended to reflect Lhe rather dull 
conditions prevailing . in the 
market . In early trading the 
dollar touched DM 1.SP271. but 3! 
this level met with some profit 
taking and cased back to trade 
mainly around us fixing level Tor

than the previous fixing or 

FFr 4.3010 for the dollar. By the 
end of business, the L'.S. unit was 
trading at FFr 4 3«77. with appar 
ently liUle or no intervention by;

started in the casting business some 8S“years 
ago. it was with the technology developed over 
.many centuries. Oyer. the yeats -Kubota. has -.-. ■ 
refined and developed new and more efficient 
ways to cast, like our centrifugal cast steel for 
Cargo oil pipe that resists corrosion caused by 
crude oil and sea 'water. 

Kubota also custom makes. reformer tubes for 
many complex purposes. The advanced centrif- 
ugal casting method- is also employed to make 
Suction rolt shells for paper mills. The controllable

’f.; ; 


HERE a^atn i? the Jobs 
Column's tlinue-yearly table of 
salary indicators, compiled from 
the survey published by Reward 
iJ. Mill Street. Stone Stafford- 
shire ST to SB A — telephone 07S 
583 4554 f. The table's fisures, 
which with one exception relate 
only to people aged 33 to 
37. are based on roughly 
2J00 managers and specialists 
who registered in the four 
month* ended with September 
a» job-candidates with the 
Government-sponsored Pro- 
fessional and Executive Recruil- 
ment agency. 

The left-hand batch of figures 
relates io all candidates in the 
particular category, whether 
they had a paper "qualification" 
nr not. The right-haud batch 
covers only those deemed pro- 
fessionally qualified. The com- 
parative figures in brackets 
->how the positions of candidates 
in iht* corresponding Tour- 
munth penud nr 1977. 

If each category % candidates 
were ranked hy salary, iht* 
person a quarier way up would 
he paid ill*" lower qua rule 
figure: the one m the middle 
the median: and the person i 
quarter way down ihr upper 
quart! It’. 

for comparison, employees 
of international ur hig national 
concerns should add 10.5 per 
cent to the table's figures: those 
in ’* regionals" employing 200 
to 1,000 should add 10.5 per 
cent: the rest should add 5 per 
cent to compensate for time lag.

' IX THE view nf the EEC Com- 
[mission all obligations imposed 
'on pig producers to sell only to 
!» national marketing hoard or 

'through its agency have been 
: abolished by the EEC Treaty and 
•EEC regulation 2759/75 
i Tile Commission has asked the 

• European Cuurl to declare that 
all legislation enforcing such 

j obligations is inapplicable. 

In its observation^ submitted 
•to the European I'.oun m a dis- 
I pule between (hr Northern 
I Ireland f’ij Marketing Board and 
| Mr. Raymond Redmond, a pig 
] producer lease no S3/78). the 
Commission argues that the Pig 
Marketing Scheme, together with 
the Movement of Pigs Regula- 
tions. denies to producers inde- 
pendent access in any internal or 
external outlets. Producers could 
not even sell in an intervention 
agency should lhe Community 

• authorities decide to buy in 
; order to support prices. 

| Market prices in the Com- 
munity are rendered meaningless 
;for lhe producer whose prices 
lure determined by the Board on 
[ the basis of its estimates of its 
annual net income from sale of 
pUs. 

: The EEC ha-: already estab- 
lished a common policy for the 

• marketing of pigmeat within the 
i Community, and the Commission 
l relies on a previous ruling by the 
: European Court that “ nnee the 
: Community has legislated for the 

establishment or the common 
[organisation of Ihe market in a 
given sector, member states are 


BY A. H. HERMANN 

under obligation to refrain from 
taking any measure which might 
undermine iL or create excep- 
tions to it.” 

Moreover, the Cummission 
argues that the Ulster sthenic is 
illegal and void because it has 
lhe same effect as a quantitative 
restriction on exports, prohibited 
hcLween member stales b> 
Article 34 of lhe EEC Treaty. 

The case now before ihe Euro- 
pean Court has ii* origin in 
events which were n-it considered 
of international importance \>hen 
they took place on .luminr;. 12, 
1977 in County Armagh. A police 
officer stopped a lurry with 75 
bacon pigs and lhe lorry driver 
was unable to produce a trans- 
port authorisation required by 
lhe Movement of Pigs Regula- 
tions (Nor I he i7i Ireland) 1972. 


Seized 


The lurry and- the pigs were 
seized and proceedings were 
commenced before the resident 
magisLrate. The offence is 
punishable by a term uf iiiiprisnn- 
nu-nl not exceeding three months 
and/or a fine of up Jo i'L'iiij; iht- 
pigs may )«• fur fail. 

The Northern Ireland Pig 
Marketing Board pointed oui in 
its submission to ihe European 
Court that the Coninmniiy iiseif 
was almost certainly the nutentiai 
victim of a fraudulenl operation 
and asked whether rights under 
Community law can arise in 
favour of those who use such 
rights to defraud or aliempt tu 


defraud the Community— in the 
view of the Board ^iicki rights 
may only be invoked by those 
who “come with clean hands.” 

The UK Covernmem took, how- 
ever, a less negative attilude. It 
staled in its *ibs> rvjtions that 
adjust men is would have to he 
made in the rules of some 
marketing Boards in order to 
bring ihi-tn into line with the 
rcMiiiremenls uf Community law. 

Di^eussions wiih the Commis- 
sion have taken place with regard 
tn ihe Pij;.- Marki-iiue Ruaid. and 
there is little doubt ihat ihe rules 
regarding ihe movement of pigs 
is one iff the matters which may 
have li- he adjusted. But it 
raised ihe possibiliiv that the Pig 
Marketing Board may l*e viewed 
not as a national marketing 
.scheme but as a slate monopoly, 
in which case the UK would not 
have been requiied to bring the 
restriction !«■ an end before 
Ucceniher 31, 1977. 

The British liuvernmeni is of 
the view that the questions pul 
to the European Court by the 
magistrate raise issues oT very 
anvil complexity and importance 
Hi the UK and the Community as 
a whole. The court should there- 
fore confine itself to ihe inter- 
pretation of EEC law in relation 
to the Movement of Pigs 
Regulation. 

In other words, the Govern- 
ment is hoping that the eoun 
could declare the Movement nf 
Pigs Regulation illegal without 
giving any ruling on the vahdiiy 
nf the pig marketing scheme.

The U.S. Agriculture Depart- 
ment expects maize prices lo 
average S2.14 a hushel in the 
1979-80 crop year ending Septem- 
ber 30. I960, up frum $2 03 in 
the 197S-79 year, according to 
Howard Hjnri. economies direc- 
tor or the U.S. Agriculture 
Department. 

Mr. Hjnrt and Stuart Eizenstat. 
the While Huuse Domestic 
Affairs Adviser, told separate 
Press briefings that the increase 
would he 1 per cent this crop 
year and 4.5 per cent in 1979-80, 
resulting in a two-year average 
rise of about 2.5 per cent. 

"Given large supplies and the 
potential increase in U.S. and 


world stocks, the expected price 
of feedgrains over lhe next 12 
months will nnt he appreciably 
different from the Iasi J2 
months.” Mr. Hjorl said. 

The 1979 feedgrain programme 
is designed lu lead to modus! 
increases in prices, he added. 

“ Livestock prices are suffi- 
ciently high so that the increased 
Teedgrain costs will not have any 
effect on the plans of producers 
to expand livestock production.'' 

He said about 50 per cent or 
the loial 1979 maize acreage 
would be included under the set- 
aside and diversion programmes, 
compared with 42 per cent this 
year. 

Mr. Hjort said the U.S. grain 


WASHINGTON. Nov. 13. 

reserve programme offers 
adequate insurance against pos- 
sible adveisc '.veal her. 

The inability to export grain 
froui the , LLS. and r»j handle it 
in foreign countries presents a 
greater problem for world food 
sccuritv than inadequate sup- 
plies or production. 

He forecast that world coarse 
grain stocks will be 100 to 110m 
tonnes by the time the 1979 crons 
are ready for harvest next 
autumn, up frum S2m this year. 
Ahout 70 per cent of the world 
stock build-up in coarse grains 
over the ua»t two tears has taken 
place in the U.S.

A more orderly market in L*ilt- 
cdped securities and luidcrJ.vmi: 
firmness in equities wm> Ihe 
theme m stock markets yester- 
day. the first day of a trading 
Account which is nsam likely to 
hp dominated by Ihe p:i> 
situation although some impor- 
tant economic and political 
pointers are scheduled for ihi- 
week. 

These include Ihe Prime 
Minister's Mansion House speech 
followed roday by The October 
rradc returns, the money supply 
statistics on Thursday and the 
retail prices indices on Friday. 

The Chancellor's warning that 
increased taxation ar> public 
spending cutbacks could follow 
excessive wage rises were noted 
with satisfaction in both majoi 
sectors, but failed tu promote 
any improved trade m (he 
industrial sections. Leading 
industrials opened around Fri- 
day's closing levels and edged 
slowly forward on a .small invest- 
ment demand coupled with some 
bcar-coverini:. 

Several constituents of the 
FT 30-share index -were quoted 
in cx-dividcnri form anti this 
represented the bulk or the 
ID a.m. fall of 2.B. which was 
pvenlually transformed into a 
net gain of 1.3 at 474..1. 

Press news on the Iranian m) 
strike and of its eftecl on crude 
ml prices, aroused considerable 
interest in Oils. Trade was brisk 
and the lenders posted good gains 
ajthough late news of the suspen- 
sion of the Arab. Israeli pear 
talks fostered cfution and a mi j- 
■sequent reaction from the day's 
best. 

Slightly unfavourable comment 
on the prospects for British 
Funds, particularly the shorts, 
made little impression oil market 
sentiment. Indeed, the shorts im- 
proved marginally in the wake of 
the longer maturities which, after 
the antics of the last rwn trading 
sessions, became a more stable 
market. 

A limited flow of invert meiu 
funds enabled quotations to im- 
prove 1 generally and more in 
selected instances where »Toek 
was m short supply. Throueh 
switching and a small straig’nf 
demand, ihe Government broker 
sold supplies nf the short-medium

Ford and VW j|j talks With 

“ s computer group 


BY JONATHAN CARR 


BONN. Not. 13. 


By Alan Pike, 

Labour Correspondent 

MORE TALKS on the Ford 
strike, now nearly two months 
old, will take place tomorrow 
at the request of the union 
side. 

Since mass meetings of Ford 
workers rejected what the 
company described as Us final 
offer at the beginning of this 
month neither side has been 
conspicuously anxious to he 
the one to get talks going 
again. 

The deadlock was broken 
yesterday afternoon when Mr. 
Ron Todd, chairman of the 
union negotiators, telephoned 
Mr. Paul Roots, Ford's em- 
ployee relations director,, and 
made a formal request Tor a 
meeting of the national joint 
negotiating committee. 

Mr. Todd, national organiser 
nr ifac Transport and General 
Workers Union, said: “There 
are 57.00ft people on strike and 
if someone has got to make 
the first move ant! ask for a 
meeting 1 have done it.” 

The offer rejected by mass 
meetings at the Ford factories 
was worth about 17 per cent. 
It. consisted of an average of 
9.75 per cent on basic rates. 
1.9 per cent in an improved 
holiday pay system and 5.15 per 
cent in the form of an attend- 
ance allowance. 

Although union negotiators 
wilt again press for an improie- 
ment in the basic rate, much of 
the objection to (be offer at the 
mass meetings was based on 
what workers saws as penalty 
clauses in the attendance allow- 
ance. .Mr. Roots suggested in 
a letter to the strikers last 
week that H might he possible 
in negotiation to agree more 
acceptable rules on the late- 
ness and absenteeism aspects 
of the allowance. 

The company is likely to 
insist, however, in retaining 
the principle of such an allow- 
ance in its eventual pay 
settlement and will remain 
determined that it should not 
be paid to workers during any ; 
week in which they have been \ 
in' oiled in a strike. 

Ford lias said that its exist- 
ing offer would mean that 
everyone on production shin 
work including Tour hours a 
week overtime could earn more j 
than £100 a week. It is possible j 
that a modest increase in the 
basic rate coupled with some 
reorganisation of the attend- 
ance plan could produce a 
different reaction from mass 
meetings after a strike lasting 
nearly two mouths. • 

Mr. Todd said he had noted 
the company's indication that 
it might be prepared to agree 
different rules on lateness and 
absenteeism but the unions 
would not want to discuss these 
points in isolation.
