Poll gives 
victory 
to Labour 

By Richard Evans 
Lobby Reporter 

Labour last night looked set 
to win the Fulham by-election 
to give Mr Neil Kinnock 
renewed hope of leading his 
party to triumph at the next 
general election, according to 
a voters’ exit poiL 

Mr Nick RaynsfonL who 
ran a near-fruitless campaign 
for Labour, won 43 per cent of 
the vote in a News at Ten poll, 
against 34 per cent for the 
Conservatives and 21 percent 
for the SDF/L£betal Alliance. 

Jl would be the first time in 
29yeais feat Labour haswon 
a London comtitueocy h^d

parliamentary by-election, 
and only the third such gain 
nationwide since 1971..

US nuclear test

From Mohsfn All, Washington 


combined with tbebonusof a 
Royal engagement failed to 
outwent toe disadvantage of 
a traditional mid-termshimp 
m government popularity. 



. The United States yesterday 
carried out its twice-post- 
poned underground nuclear 
weapons test in the Nevada 
desert, the Energy Deporment 
announced. 

The test, said to be of less 
than 20 ltilotons, could lead to 
the . resumption of Russia's 
luxfoiground nuclear test pro- 
gramme after an eight-mouth 
self-imposed moratorium. 

- Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader, recently has 
several times asked the US to 
join in a moratorium on 
underground testing, and has 
served warning that another 
American underground weap- 
ons test could lew to an end of 
Moscow’s freeze. _ 

An Energy Department 
spokesman said the explosion 
1,300 ft. below toe desert was 
intended to examine tire ef- 
fects of a nuclear warhead on 
an unspecified target. 

The test, codenamed 
Mighty Oak. was tire second 
announced by the US this 
year. , 

The US has rejected Soviet 
calls to join the moratorium 
saying it needed to test to 


maintain the credibility of the 
WestemdeterrenL 

Tbe Nevada test was origi- 
nally due to take place last 
Tuesday but was put off 
because of weather and techni- 
cal problems. On Wednesday, 
there was another postpone- 
ment for similar reasons. 

The White House spokes- 
man denied that the Tuesday 
postponement was because of 
a meeting that day between 
President Reagan and toe 
retiring Soviet Ambassador, 
Mr Anatoly Dobrynin, who 
discussed summit prospects 
here. 

• MOSCOW: Tass con- 
demned yesterday’s US nucle- 
ar test which, it claimed, was 
evidence of Washington’s 
“criminal contempt" for 
world opinion (Reuter 
reports). 

“The latest US blast made it 
dear that this Administration, 
contradicting the joint US- 
Soviet statement issued after 
last November’s summit (be- 
tween Mr Reagan and Mr 
Gorbachov) is still chasing tire 
illusion of military 
superiority ”toe agency said.

relieved to see toe end of a 
long legal controversy. 

The price paid by Spain, 
which had claimed in the High 
Court that the portrait of the 
Marquera de Santa Cruz was

than half its art world 
valuation. 

Lord Wim bo me hoped that 
charges brought in Spain 
against the London art dealer 
Mr Michael Simpson, who 
bad advised him to buy the 
painting, would be dropped.

Cabinet in 
shops Bill 
gamble 

By Philip Webster 
Political Reporter 

The Government gambled 
yesterday in an attempt to 
prevent its Sunday trading Bill 
being defeated in toe Com- 
mons on Monday. 

As expected, it decided to 
Impose a torts line whip for 
toe seeo-jd fwdjng. Fat 2 e an 
unprecedented attempt to head 
off a substantial backbench 
rebrilien, it will allow MPs a 
free vote in the commfttee and 


2k another concession, the 
Government made dear that it 
is prepared to allow a special 
parliamentary procedure un- 
der which mterested organiza- 
tions, inclnding churches and 
trade unions, can give evidence 
to the committee considering 
theBffl. 

The move, which met with 
some suspicion when outlined 
to the backbench 1922 Com- 
mittee by Mr John Cope, 
deprty chief whip, was being 
feeing taken as a clear sign of 
Cabinet fears that it could lose 
the Bin to an alliance of 
Labour, Conservative and Ul- 
ster Unionist opponents. 

But it appeared to take the 
sting out of an expected as- 
sault by the rebels on toe 
decision to impose a three- 
line- whip. 

There was tittle doubt 
among MPs that the numbers 
of rebels on Monday would be 
cut by the Government's ac- 
tion, although up to 40 are still 
expected to defy the 
whipJSome MPs who favour 
complete deregulation ware 
voicing regret at the 
Government’s move. Howev- 
er, the rebels made dear that 
they wanted a maximum turn- 
out to influence toe composi- 
tion of the committee which 
will wammg the Bill in detail.

Bipartisan 
pledge 
on Ulster 

By Anthony Bevins 

Political Correspondent 

The Prune Minister and Mr 
Neil Kinnock joined forces 
yesterday to reinforce then- 
support for the Anglo-Irish 
agreement and its continued 
implementation. 

Asked about yesterday's re- 
port in The Times on toe 
pres sure for a government 
concession to tbe Unionists 
on the agreement, Mrs Marga- 
ret Thatcher told toe Com- 
mons: “The Government is 
committed lo toe Anglo-Irish 
accord and to its implementa- 
tion, and will continue to 
implement it” 

But she added: “I would 
very much like, nevertheless, 
to have talks with representa- 
tives of the Unionist parties 
on the matters which we have 
previously identified, and oth- 
ers if they wish to bring them 
up.” 

The Labour leader said: 
“Continuing commitment to 
the accord, coupled with a 
dialogue with people from the 
Unionist section of the com- 
munity in Northern Ireland, is 
an intelligent approach, which 
will be supported by this side 
of the House.” 

But Mr James Molyneaux, 
leader of the Official Union- 
ists, said on BBC radio The 
World at One that talks “could 
not be tolerated" against the 
background of the 
Hillsborough agreement. 

He said toe value of 
Wednesday’s meeting be- 
tween toe Prime Minister and 
Lord Moyola and Lord 
Brookeborough, the 
province's elder statesmen, 
was that they would have been 
able to give Mrs Thatcher an 
independent assessment that 
the hostile reaction t o the 
agreement was not being orga- 
nized or whipped up by 
Unionist leaders. 

“I know it is very difficult 
always to convince people of 
that” Mr Molyneaux said. 
“But toe reality of it is that Mr 
Paisley and 1 to a certain 
extent have been overtaken by 
the people in Northern 
Ireland.” 

Mrs Thatcher is shortly 
expected to write again to Mr 
Molyneaux and the Rev Ian 
Paisley to restate her willing- 
ness to talk about the four 
issues raised at No 10 on 
February 25. 

She said then that the 
Government would like to 
establish new arrangements 
for enabling Unionists to

accused of violating the rights 
of parents by denying them 
access to their children in local 
authority care in five separate 
cases brought before the Euro* 
pean Commission of Human 
Rights. 

The commission's findings, 
which are still confidential, 
amount to yet another embar- 
rassing ruling against the Gov- 
ernment. which has been 
found in breach of the human 
rights convention in more 
than 12 cases. 

The five cases have been 
referred to the European 
Court of Human Rights which

the commission's findings.

The parents tried unsuccess- 
fully to have the care order 
revoked by the juvenile court, 
and were subsequently refused 
further access. 

They then tried to make the 
children wards of court, so 
that the question of access 
would be raised. But the 
action was dismissed on the 
ground that the court had no 
power of jurisdiction. 

The commission found by 
10 votes to two that the 
Government was in breach of 
article six in that the appli- 
cants were denied a court 
hearing.

Detectives

of fugitive 


By Michael Horsnefl 


Journalists producing News 
International’s four tides at 
the company’s new printing 
plant at Wapping in east 
London yesterday faced the 
prospect of expulsion from 
their national union. 

Mr Harry Conroy, general 
secretary of the National 
Union of Joamalists, told 
them at four separate meetings 
that the union's national exec- 
utive wiu consider disciplinary 
action against those members 
still crossing picket fines, 
erected by the newspaper 
mi inns involved in the dispute 
at Wapping over the dismissal 
of 6,000 striking printers in 
January. 

A list of members r e fa ring 
to obey the national executive 
committee’s instruction to ob- 
serve the picket lines will be 
handed to the committee on 
Monday. 

Disciplinary proceedings by 
the committee against the four 
fathers (chairmen) of the da- 
pels (office branches) of the 
four newspapers are already in 

hand. 

Of the 700 journalists em- 
ployed at Wapping fewer than 
30 have refused to .cross the

similar action. 

Meanwhile journalists at 
The Sunday Turns said that if 
no settlement is reached with 
the dismissed print workers by 
April 30 they will hold a secret 
ballot on industrial action. 

The Sunday Times NUJ 
chapel overwhelmingly called 
mi News International for a 
speedy . settlement of - the 
Wapping dispute. 

A similar resolution was 
later passed by the News of the 
World NUJ chapel, and jonr- 
nalists on The Sun will debate 
on Monday a resolution call- 
lag on foe national executive 
committee to hold a ballot on 
whether to call a shrike. The 
Times chapel wifi also meet 
next week to discuss Its por- 
tion. 

In another development in 
the dispute, Miss Brenda 
Dean, general secretary of 
Sogat ’82, told a meeting of 
members that the print muon 
was in serious financial diffi- 
culty after the sequestration of 
its funds. 

Branches are without elec- 
tricity; the support of other 
unions has been pom because 
they fear they would be in 
contempt of court, and many 
branch officers are no longer 
befog paid. 

She said: “We would hope 
that other trade unions would 
help us.” 

But Miss Dean said that two 
Sogat members wifi fly to 
Australia at foe weekend to 
talk to employees there of Mr 
Rupert Murdoch, rhah-man of.

ed: “The fight goes on.” .

the new code of practice for 
the control of international

man, offering the painting.; He 
said that the Spanish govern-

Princess 


speaks on 
hijacks 


Princess Michael of Kent 
yesterday criticized newspa- 
pers and television for report- 
ing every “gruesome” detail of 
hijackings which served only 
to publicize spurious causes. 

The Princess, opening the 
annual conference of the In- 
ternational Federation of Air- 
line Klots' Associations in 
London, said of the last year’s 
terrorism: "The media was 
there, recording every grue- 
some detail for us. The hijack- 
ers achieved their aim and got 
their publicity for minority 
groups and spurious causes.” 

In tighter mood, she spoke 
of being terrified of flying, 
although she enjoyed balloon- 
ing and Concorde. 

Captain Reg Smith, federa- 
tion president, called for new 
international agreements so

Satanist quotes powers from Bible 


Derry Main waring Knight, 
the seti^siykd' satanist who 
had refitted totafce an oath on 
the Bible, yesterday held foe 
same Bible in court and read 
from it. 

Mr Knight said he wanted to 
prove that foe Christian 
church had artefacts with 
power, iwflnance and control 
.ova- people as well as 

MhiBWiin 

He said he had intended to 
repay foe committed Chris- 
tians who had given him more 
than £200,000 had the police 
net arrested him. The money 
was banked m an offshore 
awyntf and foe •aftrefr; arte- 
facts he needed to free himself 
from foe control of the devil 
were stored abroad. 

Mr Knight, aged 46, an 
miemployed painter and deco- 
rator from Dormans Land, 


of 


Surrey, denies 19 cl 
©ijtaMng more than £ 
from wealthy Christians by 
deception. 

Within minutes of entering 
the witness box he asked for 
the Kiag James's 
Bible-Tunung to Acts, chapter 
19, verse 11, be read to 
Maidstone Crown Court: 
“And God did extraordinary 
miracles by foe hands iff Paul 
SO that handkerriiiefa OT 
aprons were carried away from 
his body and diseases left him 
and evfl spirits came out iff 

him. ” 

Mr Knight said this showed 
that the apostle Paid had nsed 
the handkerchief as an arte- 
fact invested with power to 
heal people iff sklmess and 
diseases. 

- “I'm not asking yon whether 
you believe that or if yon find it 


stupid,*' be told the jury. “I'm 
stating to yon that in the Bible, 
that yon wanted me to swear 
upon, a power was invested in 
a handkerchief and in foe 
shadow of Peter mid through 
the dead bones, of a man. 

“And if Christians find it 
incredible to believe, I under- 
stand yon are going to find it 
virtually impossible that in the 
black arts and occult we have 
artefacts of metal that are able 
to control your subconscious

Mr Knight spoke of foe 
rector iff Newtek, Sussex, the 
Rev John Baker, who had 
raised foe money from com- 
mitted Christians to help free 
him from the devil's control. 

Mr Knight said that Mr 
Baker continually tried to 
prevent him retaliating with a 
black mass agamst people 


posing him problems, 

Mr Knight said that to buy 
the satahic regalia to free 
liimndf from the control of foe 
devfl he had to become foe 
head of his particular satanic 
organization- 

He had a rival, “Giles”, and 
to beat him be had to have at 
least an equally opulent life- 
style. That was why he drove 
Rolls-Royces and expensive 
sports cars. He explained this 
to Lord Hampden, who gave 
him £37300 to bay a Rolls- 
Royce. 

Mr Knight disclosed that 
his mistress, Angela Mur- 
doch, was the woman named in 
court as Miss X, who allegedly 
had sexual relations with a 
hank manag er and tried to 

blackmail him. 

The hearing was adjourned 
ontil today.

Policy on disabled defended 


COMMONS 


After the Prime Minister had 
maintained that the Govern- 
ment had an excellent record of 
helping the disabled. Mr Ned 
Kinnock. Leader of the Oppo- 
' siiion. said if she really cared 
• about them, she would support 
the private member's Bill due to 
complete its remaining stages in 
the Commons tomorrow 
(Friday). 

He drew attention to the 
. Disabled Persons (Services. 
Consultation and Representa- 
tion) Bill, sponsored by Mr 
Thomas Clarke (Monklands 
WesL Lab), and asked for an 
undertaking that the Govern- 
ment would not introduce any 
amendments that would weaken 
or breach the principles of the 
Bill which had received wide- 
spread supporL 


Mrs Thatcher said the Govern- 
ment had tabled certain amend- 
ments which it believed would 
make proper provision without 
imposing undue pressures on 
local authorities. 

Mr Kinnock: The Govern- 
ment's approach to this Bill is 
cheap and nasty. Will she not 
accept that, in both the interests 
of humanity and efficiency in 
providing proper care for the 
disabled and those who care for 
them and save the country £5 
billion a year, this Bill would go 
a great deal of the way towards 
ensuring they are properly 
represented and that informa- 
tion about their ««« is properly, 
communicated? 

Mrs Thatcher. When it conies 
to expressing our care for the 
disabled, this Government has 
an extremely good record, better 
than that of any previous 
government 


We have increased spending 
on benefits for the long-term 
sick and disabled by over one 
third in real terms to over £4.5 
billion. 

The disabled associations 
made dear when we came to 
office that their main priority 
was a speeding up of the 
introduction of the mobility 
allowance, which we did. We 
increased it substantially and 
made it non- taxable and in- 
creased spending on it by four- 
and-a-half times in real terms. 

It is not for Mr Kinnock to 
criticize the record of this 
Government on help for the 
disabled 

Mr Kh uw d c Surely she must 
know that no one who is 
disabled or who cares for them 
can accept the description ofher 
policies she has offered. It 
simply does not bear up in 
practice. 


She heads a Government that 
cut the invalidity allowances 
and cut bock on local govern- 
ment which prevented them 
oven fulfilling their statutory 
duties towards the disabled. 

Will she not accept that all of 
the advances made under her 
Government were originated by 
the last Labour Government? 

If the Prime Minister cares as 
much as she says she cares, 
surely supporting this Bill would 
be a very small addition to what 
she has already done? 

Mrs Thatcher Which of the 
facts 1 have given does he 
quarrel with? We have also 
extended the long-term supple- 
mentary rate to many disabled 
people and extended the entitle- 
ment to invalidity care allow- 
ances to non-relanvesL. 

It is an excellent record for 
disabled people and all of tire 
finances have been found in the 
lifetime of this Government. 


Bill coming to keep block 
grant system unchanged 


COUNCIL FINANCE 


The Government was accused 
of a bare-faced attempt to 
interfere with the judicial pro- 
cess when Mr William 
WaJdegrave. Minister of State 
for the Environment an- 
nounced the introduction this 
session of a short Bill to 
maintain the status quo in the 
block grant system for local 
authorities. 

The Bill is intended to re- 
move any doubts about the 
interpretation of the Secretary of 
State for the Environment's 
power to determine block grant 
‘'multipliers" to limit changes in 
the grant entitlements of in- 
dividual authorities from year 
to year. 

Birmingham City Council is 
already taking court action 
against the Secretary of State on 
(he issue. The case is due to 
open next Tuesday and Mr Jack 
Straw, an Opposition environ- 
ment spokesman, said Mr 
Wai degrave was making a panic 
statement because the DoE had 
been advised it would lose. 

Mr Waldegrave said it had 
not yet been decided how to 
handle the Birmingham case 
and consultations were 
continuing. 

In bis statement he said (hat 
generally block grant was paid to 
compensate authorities for dif- 
ferences in their expenditure 
need and in their rateable 
resources. In addition, the 1980 
Local Government Planning 
and Land Act gave the Secretary 
of State power to determine 
block grant multipliers. 

In every year since 1981 this 
power had been used to sei 
safety nets to protect local 
authorities against undesirable 
losses in any one settlemenL In 
two years it had also been used 
to set caps on increases, to 
prevent undesirable gains .by 
some authorities at the expense 
of all others. 

For 1986-87. the then Sec- 
retary of State made clear that 
he proposed to use these powers 
to restrict windfall gains result- 


ing from the decision to dis- 
pense with expenditure targets. 

This year for the first time a 
handful of authorities bad ques- 
tioned the use of this power. 
They maintained that the Sec- 
retary of Stale's power was 
restricted to limiting changes in 
the overall amount of grant 
payable to an authority for one 
year compared with the pre- 
vious year. 

One authority (he said) has 
already taken court action on 
this, and I understand that a 
number of other authorities are 
considering similar action. 

I do not believe that the 
powers could be used in any 


able losses of grant if any oihei 
1980 Act 



Straw; Serious 
constitutional issue 


sensible, practicable fashion un- 
der this alternative 

interpretation. 

Such an interpretation would 
cast doubt on the grant entitle- 
ment for every local authority 
for 1986-87 and for every pre- 
vious year back to 1981-82 
under the rate support grant 
settlements which the House 
had approved. 

It would (he said) dearly be 
mosi unsatisfactory, if a proce- 
dure which has been followed 
since 1981-82 were to be over- 
turned. particularly since, 
throughout this period there has 
been a broad measure of agree- 
ment on what the provision 
meant between the department 
and the local authority associ- 
ations. many of whose members 
would face wholly u rummage- ; 


interpretation of the I 
were to become accepted. 

The Government is not pre- 
pared to allow that to happen 
and believes we must fair* 
action to preserve the status 
quo. 

Mr Straw said the statement 
raised a most serious constitu- 
tional issue, it was a bare-faced 
attempt by the Government to 
interfere with the judicial pro- 
cess. Ministers were proposing 
to use their majority in the 
Commons to pre-empt the de- 
cision of a coun not yet made. 

Mr Waldegrave said there 
were plenty of occasions when 
the House had acted to clarify 
the law to mean what it had 
been thought it meant. 

Mr Patrick Jen lun. the former 
Secretary of State for the 
Environment, said it was per- 
fectly legitimate to legislate in 
this way in order to implement 
settled expectations. 

Mrs Edwiaa Currie (South 
Derbyshire, C) said she 
congratulated Labour- 
controlled local authorities on 
their new-found respect for so- 
called Tory judges and their 
determination to abide by 
court orders if they could get 
them. 

The state of the law was 
intolerable and there would be 
only muddle if it was not 
changed. 

Mr Waldegrave replied that he 
did not think Mr Straw was 
serious in opposing this 
legislation.

Motion of no 
confidence in 
minister 


EDUCATION 


Mrs Margaret Thatcher, the 
Prime Minister, said during 
Commons questions that she 
bad great confidence in her 
Secretary of State for Educa t ion 
and Science, Sir Keith Joseph, 
who a Labour MP described as a 
“lame duck". 

Mr Jeremy Corbyn (Islington 
North, Lab) had asked: Would 
the Prime Minister tell us 
whether she has confidence in 
her lame duck Secretary of State 
for Education or in the gov- 
ernors of a school in her 
constituency in Finchley under 
the chairmanship of the former 
chairman of Finchley Conser- 
vative Association. Councillor 
John Tiplady. who have voted 
that it is impractical to proceed 
with the GCSE examination 
course starting this September? 
Mrs Thatcher; 1 have great 
confidence in the Secretary of 
State for Education and Science 
and so have my constituents. 
•Later, during business 
questions. Mr John Biffed, 
Leader of the House, indicated 
that there would be a debate on 
education next Thursday 
initiated by Alliance MPs. 

Mr David Alton (Liverpool, 
Mossley Hill, L) said that in 
the debate the Alliance parties 
intended to move a motion of 
no confidence in Sir Keith 


Castro joining 
the capitalists 


There was laughter in the cham- 
ber when Mr Matthew Parris 
(West Derbyshire. Q asked the 
Prime Minister during question 
time in the Commons to 
congratulate Fidel Castro, 
through the Cuban ambassador, 
on his decision to sell Cuban 
council houses to their sitting 
tenants. 

Mrs Thatcher replied: I confess 
I have not regarded that asa top 
priority of the day but any move 
towards capitalism and freedom 
by a communist society is 
welcome. 


Ensuring 
future of 
airports 
policy 


Thatcher urged 
to stand firm on 
Sunday trading 


AVIATION 


The Airports Bill would ensure 
the United Kingdom airport 
industry continued to he the 
envy of the world, Mr Nicholas 
Ridley, Secretary of State for 
Transport, said in tire Com- 
mons when the Bill received its 
third reading by 303 votes to 
138 - Government majority, 
165. 

Moving tire third reading, he 
said it provided the statutory 
underpinning of the future of 
airports policy, powers for the 
Government to nilfil its strate- 
gic responsibilities towards one 
of the major national resources, 
opportunities for airports to 
reap the benefits of the commer- 
cial, business-like approach to 
airport management and strong 
and continuing protection 
against monopoly abase for 
airlines and pa ss e nge rs. 

L The Bill incorporated protec- 
tion against predatory pricing 
which could harm another 
airport’s business. Competition 
would be open and above all 
free. Manchester would have no 
grounds to fear competition 
from a privatized British Air- 
ports Authority, nor that preda- 
tory pricing from Stansted 
would harm its business. 

I believe we have got the best 


SHOPS BILL 



The Prime Minister was urged 
to resist any temptation to 
compromise on the Shops B91, 
which deregulates Sunday trad- 
ing, and is due to receive its 
second reading in the Commons 
on Monday. 

Mr David Atkinson (Bourne- 
mouth East, C) said although 

such a compromise was super- 

finally attractive it would only 
lead to new anomalies and 
nnenforcezble laws. The sugges- 
tiou of passing the bock to local 
authorities would add to. the 
nationwide hotch-potch of stan- 
dards regarding pub hours, sex 
shops and tire flouridatioB - of 
water supplies. 

The choice on Monday would 
be between freedom of choice on 
Sunday observance and the 
strict and costly enforcement of 
the existing crmnaal law by the 
local authorities. 

Mrs Thatcher said it was com- 
mon ground that the present law 

was uneufocceaMe. 

Later, daring business 
lions, Mr John BifTen, “ 

the House, rejected 

from Sir Kenneth Lewis (Stam- 
ford and Spalding, Q that MPS 
should debate the BiD on a 
Sunday to give them an ander- 
standtog of what Sunday trading 
would mean. 

Mr NeO Kinnock, Leader of 
the Opposition, asked Mr John 
Bitten, Leader of the House, 
daring questions about forth- 
coming business, if he would use 
bis influence to ensure that (but 
was a free vote for Conservative 
MPs on the second reading of 
the Shops BUL 

He also asked for an under- 
taking that Mr BifTen would 
discuss the possibility of giving 
extra time for the second reading 
dohato, 

Mr BifTen said Mr Khmock's 
plea would hare been heard and 
evaluated accordingly. He would 
be happy to have the request for 
extra time on the Slops Bill 
farther considered. 

Sir Paul Bryan (Bootbferry, C) 
asked if the Government in- 
tended to have the BiD commit- 
ted to a special standing 
committee. 

Mr BifTen: There would be merit 
in such a procedure. Perhaps we 
■tight consider that. 

Mr David Alton (Liverpool, 
Mossley HHI, L): Opinion on 
these benches very much sup- 
ports the idea that there should 
be a free vote. Many of os would 
like to see the debate extended to 
midnight on Monday. 

Sir Adam Batter (B usw o rth , Ck 
The point that so many Conser- 
vative MPs object to .is the

in the Shops Bill of total

the day and the appropriate kind 
of legislation. I wiH draw the 

■ Home Secretary’s attention to 
his points. 

In later exchanges, Mr Biffcn 
told Sir Kenneth Lewis (Stam- 
ford and Spak fat g, Q that be 
had successfully resisted the 
temptation to become u inno- 
vative Leader of die House, so 
be had no istesfin of acceding 
.to the idea of asking MPs to 

■ attend the Commons on Sunday 

(Laughter). 

Sir Geoffrey Finsberg (Hamp- 
stead and Higfoate. Q argrd 
Mr BifTen not to succumb to the 
siren voices who thought that 
two hours* extra debate on the 
Shops Bill would make any 
difference. Minds were already 
made up. If Mr Biffcn were to 
bring MPS bb on a Sunday, could 
he ensure that public transport 
and public utilities were not 
working, which was what some 
neorfc seemed to want? 
MrBUfen said a lot of MPs did 
want extra time for the debate. It 
was something to be considered. 
Mr Michael McNair- Wilson 
(Newbury, Q referred to the 
remarks of the Chairman of the 
Conservative Party, Mr Norman 
TeMrit, who bad drawn attention 
to die poisonous effect of certain 
legislation passed during the 
permissive sixties. Would not 
the time to be spent on the 
unnecessary Shops JEfiB be better 


of both worlds (be said). Tfae 
United Kingdom would have 
the benefits of a strong South 
East system, but the Bui would 
ensure its strength was not used 
to the detriment of sound aiport 
development in other parts of 
the UK but to beat European 
competitors who were always 
trying to musde in on Britain's 
business. 

Privatization of BAA would 
bring benefits. Employees 
would be encouraged to take a 
stake in their own future by 
purchasing shares in their com- 
pany. The details of the em- 
ployee share scheme were still 
being discussed but he would 
expect benefits to be offered on a 
similar scale to those offered to 
British Telecom employees: £70 
worth of free shares per em- 
ployee; two free shares for each 
one bought up to a total of £200 
worth of free shares; and 10 per 
cent discount on up to £2.000 
worth of shares as well as 
priority rights of application for 
full price shares. 

Mr Robert Hughes, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
transport, said this was not a 
matter of principle but a matter 
of practice. The House would 
not wish to give the Bill a third 
reading if the BAA was to be 
sold off at a fraction of its true 
value. 

Mr Alfred Morris (Manchester, 

Wythenshawe. Lab) said despite 
MPs’ efforts to introduce oonsis- . _ 

tency. and — flip put 

the Bill, it .remained large) 
deficient and inconsistent- . 1. 
was a bad Bill and would-makc 
bad law. 

Mr Toby Jessel (Twickenham, 

Q said the Bill should htclude 
provision to ensure- that the 
profits from duty free drink at 
airports would be used to pay 
!. the cost of double glazing for his 
constituents to protect them 
from aircraft noise. 

Mr Michael Meadowcroft 
(Leeds, West, L) said the Bill 
was unsatisfactory to him and 
his colleagues and he opposed 
the third reading. 

Mr Terence Dicks (Hayes and 
Hariiagton, C) said he was one 
of the rebels against the BilL He 
agreed completely with tbe prin- 
ciple of privatization but there 
were lots of things wrong with

Mr John Carlisle (Luton; 

North, Q said he wanted to 
encourage scheduled flights 
from Luton and they were not 
afraid of fair competition. But 
if Stansted continued as a 
subsidised airport and was not 
made to stand on its own feet 
there would be that continuing 
worry. 

Mr Michael Spicer, Under- 
secretary of State for Transport, 
replying, gave an assurance that 
regulations would ensure the 
new public airport companies 
would not act anti-compet- 
i lively and against the public 
interest.'

Mr Mm said- Mr McNair-

fortune to make that point in foe 
Shops Bill debate. . 

Mr Antony Marlow (No rtha mp- 
ion North, C) askedJT Mr Bffleti 
would draw attention to a three 
fine whip being a requirement 
upon MPs to attend a debate and 
net to vote in any paitfcater way. 
MPS would vote according to 
their consciences. 

If the Government Chief 
Whip (Mr John. Wakeham) 
wanted a three line whip it was, 
presuma bly, because he felt that 
MPs might otherwise find more 
.important business to. which*. to 
attend elsewhere- •

PM hopes for talks on 
accord with unionists 


ULSTER 


The Anglo-Irish accord, would 
be implemented, Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister 
said during Commons ques- 
tions, but added she would like 
to have talks with the repre- 
sentatives of the Ulster 
Unionists. 

She was asked by Dr David 
Owen, Leader of tbe SDP: Will 
she confirm she has offered talks 
on an open agenda to the leaders 


of the Ulster political parties; 

lyneaux

and that Mr James Mo lyneaux 
(leader of the Official Unionist 
Party) on the radio today, when 
he described the talks as not 
open but conditional, is not 
correct and there are no pre- 
conditions on either side? 

Mrs Thatcher: I have made it 
dear tbe Anglo-Irish accord 
endorsed by this House and the 
House of Lords will continue 
and will be implemented and I 
would very much like nonethe- 


less to have talks with repre- 
sentatives of the Unionist party 
on matters we have previously 
identified and others if they 
wish to bring them up. 

Mrs Elizabeth Peacock (Bailey 
and Speo, Q: Has she had the 
opportunity to read the leading 
article in TJke Times .which 
suggests the "Government will 
not honour the Anglo-Irish 
at? Will she confirm to 
House that she is totally 
committed to its success . and 
its implementation? 

Mrs Thatcher Yes. As I 
indicated, tbe Government is 
committed io the Anglo-Irish 
accord . and to its 
implementation and will 
continue -to implement it. 

Mr No! Xhraock. Leader of foe 
Opposition: The continued 
commitment to the accord, 
coup led with a dialogue with 
people from the Unionist, 
section of the community in 
Northern Ireland, is an 
intelligent approach and will be ' 
supported by the Labour Party.

Lords rule postal 
divorces invalid 


The House of Lords ruled 
yesterday that Pakistani 
"postal” divorces are not val- 
id in English law. 

_ Five law lords unanimously 
dismissed an immigration ap- 
peal by an intended bride. 
Miss Ghulam Fatima, who 
had been refused permission 
to enter Britain in 1982. 

She had come to marry her 
fiance, Mr Muhammad Aftai, 
of Court Street, Bolton, Lan- 
cashire, who had pronounced 
an Islamic “talaq** divorce 
against bis first wife and had 
posted the divorce documents 
to her in Pakistan. 

Lord Ackner said that, un- 
der Islamic law, a husband 
had the right to repudiate his 
wife, without showing cause 
and without recourse to a 
court of Jaw, by saying the 


word “talaq” (I divorce you) 
three times. 

On May 22, 1978, Mr Afeal 
pronounced “talaq” against 
his wife, who lived with his 
parents in Pakistan. He nrafe 
a declaration, in the. presence 
ofa solicitor, that he had done 


so. 


A copy of the document was 
sent to his . .wife and the 
relevant official in Pakistan, 
and the maniage was dis- 
solved according to Pakistani 
law 90 days later. 

But the feet that Mr AfeaTs 
divorce proceedings had been 
started in England and com- 
pleted in Pakistan - made it 
“valid underthe Recognition 
of Divorces and Legal Separa- 
tions Act 1971, Lord Ackner 
said. 


Swine fever outbreak 


An outbreak of classical 
swine fever, the first in Britain 
since 1971, was confirmed by 
the Ministry of Agriculture 
fast night. The outbreak is at a 
farm near Bridgnorth, Shrop- 
shire. 

All the pigs on the form are 
being slaughtered, and the 


movement of animate is to be 
restricted within a 10 kilo- 
metre radius. The owner will 
receive full compensation. 


Ministry officials are inves- 
the source of the i 
infection. There is no risk ton 
human health.

Pet cancer 
treatment 
gives hope 
to humans 

By Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 

Progress in the treatment id 
qmmaig suffering from cancer 
is offering more hope to hu- 
man victims as well as their 
pets, leading veterinary sur- 
geons said yesterday. 

The Animal Health Trust, a 
charity which helps horses, 
dogs and cats with medical 
conditions, branched an appeal 
for almost O million to fond 
new projects, including cancer 
research. 

The rate of cancer in dogs is 
greater than in humans, and 
large n embers of cats are also 
affected, Mr Brian Singleton, 
director of the trust and past 
president of the Royal College 
of Veterinary Surgeons, said 
at the Kennel CJnb in Loudon. 

The bust, of which the 
Queen is the patron, is seeking 
065,000 to buy radiotherapy 
and other equipment to treat 
pets such as Hoopy, a nine- 
year-old Boxer with skin can- 
cer. New equip me nt is also 
being sought to treat eye 
conditions in dogs such as 
Kirsty, a three-year-old Ger- 
man shepherd guide dog. 

Dr Larry Owen, the trust’s 
expert in animal cancers, said: 
“Onr work is of increasing 
benefit to humans as well as 
pets. The exchange of infor- 
mation between the two medi- 
cal disciplines Is very 
im portant."

Lambeth 
scheme 
to employ 
rebels 

By Anthony Bevins 

Political Correspondent 

Lambeth Labour Party is 
considering a plan to take Mr 
Ted Knight and 29 other 
disqualified councillors on to 
the council payroll if the party 
is returned to power in the 
May 8 elections. 

Party sources said yesterday 
that the banned councillors 
were facing possible sur- 
charges of as much as £8,000 
each, and the scheme to give 
them jobs had been devised to 
help them overcome their 
financial crisis. 

Salaries would be fixed at a 
suitably high level, to take 
account of the surcharges 
which had been imposed as a 
result of their “loyalty to 
Labour policy" in defiance of 
Conservative government 
rates curbs. 

It is proposed that they 
would be offered jobs as 
special "advisers" to the coun- 
cil, which would also mean 
that they would effectively 
lose little of the political 
power that they held before 
they were barred from office 
for five years, at midnight on 
April 1 

Mr Knight and his col- 
leagues lost their appeals 
against surcharge and dis- 
qualification on March 5, 
when Mr Knight said that he 
was expecting to be made 
bankrupt 


Irradiation 
‘no risk’ 
to food 
standards 

By John Young 
Agriculture Correspondent 

Irradiation of food within 
specified limits provided an 
acceptable method of preserv- 
ing food, and posed no risk to 
public health, according to a 
report by a government-ap- 
pointed advisory committee, 
published yesterday. 

The committee, under the 
chairmanship of Sir Arnold 
Burgen, Master of Darwin 
College, Cambridge, says it is 
satisfied that ionizing irradia- 
tion up to 10 kilograys (3 
standard radiation measure- 
meat) wo aid not lead to a 
significant change in the natu- 
ral radioactivity of the food or 
prejudice its safety and whole- 
someness. 

Irradiation, used in other 
countries bat so far banned in 
Britain, can be used to destroy 
the spoilage organisms in 
food; delay the ripening of fruit 
and the sprouting of certain 
vegetables; and control insect 
infestation of grain and other 
stored products. 

The report suggests that if 
food irradiation were permit- 
ted in the United Kingdom, 
regulatory controls and prac- 
tices would need to be intro- 
duced at the same time. 

The Food Advisory Com- 
mit] ee says that there should 
be a law requiring irradiated 
food to be labelled to inform 
purchasers. 


£7m proposal for 
Whitehall reform 


By Cofia Hashes 


Proposals for breathing new 
life into White hall by appoint- 
ing teams of political advisers 
in every government depart- 
ment are made today by an ad 
hoc group chaired by & John 
Hoskyns, former bead of the 
Prime Minister's think tank. 

The group, publishing its 
programme before an Institute 
of Directors conference next 
month on creating fresh skills 
in government, says that the 
first main reform of the 
machinery of British govern- 
ment since the Second World 
War wonld cost only 
£7.7 milfioii. 

Sir John, now director- 
general of foe institute, said 
the plan would be a British 
adaptation of the French mm- 
istena! cabinet system. - .

I Rare sand 
lizards’ 
ideal home 

By Hugh Clayton 
Environment Correspondent 

A dutch of young lizards 
will be let loose in sand doses 
near the . Royal Birkdale goK 
corase on Merseyside today in 
an effort to protect one of 
Britain’s most rare wild ani- 
mals from extraction. 

They are sand fizards, 
which are larger and. mere 
colourful than foe common 
lizard that is somet i mes found 
.in gardens. \ 

Mr Keith Corbett, who 
brought foe three-incb-lwag 
newcomers to . Merseyside 
from a reptile form in Surrey, 
said that foe sand lizards 
looked different from their 

wmfa* jpgwirtwfn li PflHihmii, 

Sand fizards, which lived 
among marram grass, were 
more striped than foe spotted 
ones that lived in heather. 
“The sand fizards, have been 
striated for at least 2,000 
years,” Mr Corbett, who is 

conservation officer for the 
British Herpeftriogca l Soci- 
ety, said. 

Reptile researchers befieve 
that there are only between 
5,000 and 10,000 sand fizards 
left in Britain, of which most 
live in Doraet heathland with a 
few surviving near the western 
boundaries f* Surrey. A few 
hundred also survive in ideal 
conditions in sand dunes at 
Southport. 

The animals are Bot poisoo- 
oqs, mid have the highest 
drone of protection under 
wSdfife law. Mr Gorbett said 
that 50 years ago there were 
about 10,000 of the animals 
near Southport. 

The society had started to 
rapture wild sand lizards with 
the penmsskm of 'foe Nature

Mr Hardy and his Merlin phone system 
perform the illusion of transporting Birmingham 

Bull Ring to Cannon Street, EC4. 


IN WHICH WE LEARN OF THE MANY ADVANTAGES OF UNITING DIVERSE AND DISTANT 

EMPORIA WITH A SINGLE COMMUNICATIONS SYSTEM. 


E rnest Hardy was no ordinary 
head of a nationwide business. 
He was a man with un- 
common vision and an unusual 
sense of theatre, i 


“the Birmingham branch. Apparently 
in this very building. An illusion, of 
course. But magnificently effected by 


INTERNAL CALLS FROM THE 
OUTSIDE 

This was never more evident 
than today as he prepared to 
introduce the Board to their new 
Merlin DX communications system 
from British Telecom. 

“As from today" began Hardy, 
“we shall be working far more 
closely with our Birmingham and 
Brighton branches. You may in . 
fact assume that they now share 
this very building.” The Board 
looked round uneasily. 

“Allow me to effect a small 
demonstration.” Hardy turned to 
his assistant. “Miss Snow^ would 
you be so kind? Gentlemen, I need 
barely remind you of the time, 
trouble and expense it takes to 
reach our Birmingham office.” The 
Board nodded, recalling forgotten 
numbers and frayed tempers. 
“Miss Snow, would you dial 4596. 
Apparently an internal number; 
Gentlemen, 4596? Miss Snow complied, 
with a flourish. 

SHARED RESOURCES FOR 

GREATER SATISFACTION 

Almost instantly she replied to 
the voice and replaced the receiver. 
“That was Hargreaves from the 
Birmingham officer 

“As promised^ announced Hardy, 





our Merlin DX communications system!' 

“Remarkable indeed, but. Gentlemen, 
we must not think only of ourselves. 

A single set of operators and a single 
set of equipment here in Cannon 
Street will now be able to service 
the whole company. More satisfied 
customers, quicker responses, seconds 
saved on every call. It’s all time in 
the bank. Gentlemen.” 

MORE THAN SIMPLE SPEECH 

“There’s more. Gentlemen. Data’/ 
Hardy whipped a black cloth from 
the table before him to reveal a 


keyboard and screen. “Suppose I want 
to work with files from the Brighton 
office. A simple case of one, two, three 
and presto!” Hardy’s fingers danced 
over the keyboard and the screen . 
began to fill with text. “Data, 
Gentlemen, down the telephone 
line. I give you the Merlin DX 
communications system from 
British Telecom in all its 
considerable glory.” It was a little 
dramatic, but Hardy was in a 
thespian mood. 

A VISION OF THE FUTURE 

The Board applauded 
enthusiastically. “The dawn of a 
new beginning. We now have a 
system that allows us to pool our 
resources, to share knowledge and 
experience.” Hardy stopped. He • 
had succeeded in transporting both : 
Birmingham Bull Ring and the 
Brighton branch to Cannon Street 
He had presented them with the 
Merlin DX communications system. : 
What more could anyone w r ant?

aid call 

Fnm Christopher Thomas 
Washington 

President Reagan has called 
on the Htmre of Representa- 
tives to “show the world that 
the United States is deter- 
mined to defend freedom in 
Central America” by voting 
next to resume military 
aid to the Nicaraguan Contras. 

The vote, scheduled for 
Tuesday, looks certain to lead 
•to the resumption of aid, 
which was cut off by Congress 
in mid- 1984. The only argu- 
ment dividing the RqnUi- 
cans and Democrats seems to 
be over preconditions for 
attemptin g peace negotiations 
before releasing the money.

policy towards

fighters”/ He said the “Sandi-

Waldheim rebuke 
to Austrians 

From Frank Johnson, Vienna 
' Dr Kuxt Waldheim said the war when duty in that war 
here last night that there was 
no doubt that the “campaign 
Of defamati on against me” 
had its origins in Austria. 

Dr Waldheim, the Conser- 
vative-supported candidate in 
the Austrian presidential elec- 
tion on May 4, was speaking in 
a tense, television debate with 
his. Socialist opponent. Dr 
Kurt Sleyrer. 

The debate was dominated 
by the accusations that Dr 
Waldheim took part in, or had 
direct knowledge of massa- 
cres and deportations in Yu- 
goslavia and Greece during 
the Second World War. 

At the claim that the accusa- 
tions originated in Austria 
itself; Dr Steyrer said he was 
“tired” of the implication that 
file Socialist Party was behind 
the* campaign against Dr 
Waldheim's honour. He chal- 


lenged Dr Waldheim to name 
those Austrians whom be 
believed to be responsible. Dr 
Waldheim refeed that he 
knew the names of individ- 
uals, bnl was not prepared to 
dSsdose them. . 

One of the three journalists 
putting questions to the candi- 
dates asked them, as members 
of fire war generation, to say 
when each knew of the exter- 
mination of the Jews. Dr 
Steyrer refeed that he began 
to realize it in 1942-43. 

He knew nothing of it when 
at the front, where be empha- 
sized he - served only as a 
medical doctor, but realized h 
cm leave alien he learned of 
Jews in Austria disappearing. 
Dr Waldheim commented: “I 
am fed you said that.” He 
added that this was consistent 
with his own experience. 

One of the panel asked Dr 
Waldheim why he had fre- 
quently said that he had 
merely -done his duty during 


involved being in the service 
of the criminal Hitler. 

Dr Waldheim replied: 
“That is a typical mistaken 
interpretation.” By 
had meant duty to ho 
to the people and to comrades 
at the front, “not to the 
criminal, hateful regime.” It 
was a bitter war, he added. 
There were victims on both 
sides. He himself after being 
wounded, had been an invalid 
for 14 days on the Russian 
front in temperatures of mi- 
nus 14 degrees. 

• NEW YORK: After exam- 
ining the confidential United 
Nations file on Dr 
Waldheim's wartime 
record, the Israeli Govern- 
ment yesterday requested ac- 
cess to two more files (Zoriana 
Pysariwsky writes). 

Mr Bepjamin Netanyahu, 
the Israeli representative, has 
asked to see the UN dossier on 
Alois Brunner, an 'aide to 
Adolf Echmaon, who was 
executed in Israeli in 1962. 
Brunner is believed to be 
living in Syria. 

Mr Netanyahu said that the 
other file contained informa- 
tion on a prominent diplomat 
who was part of “the Nazi war 
machine”. Although he re- 
fused to name the diplomat, 
sources said that the Israeli 
rep resentative was referring to 
Herr Hermann Klenner of 
East Germany, who is a vice- 
chairman. of the UN Human 
Rights Commission. 

The UN file on Dr Wald- 
heim appears to have raised 
more questions about his war- 
time rofo with the onus on 
Yugoslavia to release 
keydocuments. 

Mr Netanyahu made . clear 
that the file, railed to exonerate 
Dr Waldheim.

Slabbert vows Minister 


Problems of the Lone Star state 


to combat 


accuses 
Suzman of 






apartheid with 
the people 


sabotage 


Party is over as 

forces painful i 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 


Dr Frederik van Zyl Slab- 
bert, former liberal opposition 
leader in the South African 
Parliament, made his first 
important political appear- 
ance here on Wednesday night 
since resigning in February as 
leader of the Progressive Fed- 
eral Party (PFP). 

He told nearly 1,000 people 
of all races packed into die 
Johannesburg Town Hall that 
he was still an “apprentice" in 
extra-parliamentary politics, 
but be believed that the debate 
about South Africa's future 
would now be conducted out- 
side Parliament. He wanted to 
be part of it. 

Only when the ban on 
organizations like the African 
National Congress (ANC) was 
lilted and political prisoners 
released would “the possibili- 
ty begin to exist for negotia- 
tions with the real leaders of 
the country", he declared 

The meeting was organized 
by the multiracial United 
Democratic Front (UDF), and 
Dr Slabbert spoke in front of a 
huge banner urging whites to 
join. The organization claims 
about a million members and 
shares the political aims of the 
outlawed ANC. 


Dr Slabbert has not yet 
joined the UDF, though be 
seems to be moving in that 
direction. Opposing apartheid 
from within Parliament was 
an honourable tradition, he 
said, but “protesting against 
apartheid was not the same as 

changing it”. 

Johannesburg City Council 
refused permission for the 
meeting in the Town Hall 
chamber, and it was held in a 
small upstairs room. Many 
people who could not get in 
spilled out into the street 

There were jeers and cries of 
“get out, get out” when police 
tried to warn of a bomb scare. 
The crowd considered the 
warning a police hoax. 

Meanwhile, as widespread 
violence continued police 
shot dead a black man early 
yesterday when they surprised 
a group preparing to throw 
petrol bombs at a white high 
school in Randfontein, east of 
Johannesburg. 

Residents of the Winterveld 
shanty town 20 miles north- 
west of Pretoria claimed that 
three black youths were shot 
dead on Wednesday by police 
of the Bophuthatswana tribal 
“homeland". 


Cape Town (Renter) — A 
South African Cabinet minis- 
ter denounced a leading news- 
paper in a stormy 
parliamentary debate yester- 
day, and another caused a 
partial opposition walkout 
when he called the veteran 
anti-apartheid campaigner, 
Mrs Helen Suzman, a “sabo- 
tear of the police”. 

The Law and Order Minu- 
ter, Mr Louis Le Grange, 
accused the Cape Times tit 
being a mouthpiece ’ of the 
banned AfrkaANational Con- 
gress (ANC). 

As Mr Le Grange made a 
hardline speech in defence of 
the police, who have been 
accused of excessive 

force in Mach townships, the 
National (white) Education 
Minister, Mr F.W. de Klerk, 
interrupted to make his accu- 
sation against Mrs Suzman, a 
member of the opposition Pro- 
gressive Federal Party (PFP). 

When the chairman of the 
house rated that “saboteur” 
was not an unparliamentary 
term, almost all the white 
liberal Opposition members 
walked out. 

Mr Le Grange accused the 
Cape Times of “biased and 
slanted attacks on the 
Government" and said that 
miig»n it changed its tone it 
would share tie fete of the 
Road Deify Mail, a Johannes- 
burg daily dosed down as 
unprofitable last year.

The so-called Swedish modr 
el of highly-centralized wage 
negotiations, badly battered m 
recent yean, lived to fight 
-another <Jay yesterday when a 
new bout of mdasiral. action 
vims avoided at the last 

wiinttfw . : 

A pay .agreement . signed 
less than two hours, before a. 
strike of white collar workers 
was due to start, also averted' 
the fast serious domestic test 
of the abQities of Sweden's 
new' prime Minister, Mr 
Ingvar Carbson, who w took 
over after the nnuder of Mr 
OlofPafrhc on February 28. . 

Whfte ministera welcomed 
the deal for avoiding damag- 
ing industrial action, however, 
sources dose to the- Finance 
Minister, Mr KjeQ-OIof Feldt,. 
expressed grave doubts about 
Sweden’s ability to preserve 
its competitiveness after such: 
a settlement. 

Generally, however, there 
was a feeling of relief as the 
Swedish Employers’ Confed- 
eration, SAF, shook hands 
with the bargaming organiza- 
tion, PTK, on a two-year deal 
. that will- give white collar 
workers in private industry 
about 5.5 per cent more from 
April 1 this year, and another 
4. per cent inpease . from 
January 1 next year. They will* 
also get a tump sum of £o0. 

An 18-year-old white collar 
worker in private industry in 
Sweden will now earn at least 
£555 a month this year and' 
£585 next year. 

The chairman of the PTK, 
Mr Bertil Bloraqvist, prompt- 
ly called off the strike of 
1 8,000 key workers which had 
been due to start at 1.00 pm 
BST yesterday. The SAF 
chairman, Mr CHofljundgren, 
called off today’s- proposed 
lock-out of 300,000 workers-

Mr Ra ul Daza, a member of

They told a US congressio-

and managed property worth 
fpore than $300 million for

Mr Marcos has repeatedly

interest in the international 
tax aspects of New York real

He wantedlo ensure that a

to avoid paying tax. 

Mr Bernstein . described a 
dinner at a New York restau- 
rant during which Mrs Imelda 
Marcos waved a bank state- 
ment and boasted of a Swiss 
account worth $120 million. 

He also supported evidence 
from a previous witness that 
she had. wanted to get $70 
million out of the properties 
by 1987. “She said uiey need-

Australia to double migrant I 


From Toqy Da bond in 
Melbourne 

Australia is to almost dou- 
ble its intake of migrants over 
the next decade. 

The Cabinet has agreed to a 
proposal by Mr Chris Hur- 
ford. Minister for Immigra- 
tion and Ethnic A flair s, to 
take an extra 1 1,000 migrants 
in tbe next financial year, 
bnngingthe total up to 95,000. 

The Government has also 
adopted in principle a long- 
term plan to return immigra- 


tion to its post-war boom level 
of between 160,000 and 
170,000 people a year. 

The 1986/87 policy will 
contain a new category — the 
independent and concessional 
category — which will provide 
easier access for prospective 
migrants who have relatives in 
Australia or those who would 
be financiall y independent 

The new category will in- 
crease eligible migrants by 
extending the definition of tbe 
family to include such rela- 


tives as nephews and nieces. 

Applicants under this new 
category will be assessed on 
their employability and likely 
contribution to Australia. It is 
expected that 25.000 people 
will be approved under the 
new heading in the next 
financial year, an increase of 
2 bout 9,000. 

It is not clear who will 
benefit from the new defini- 
tion. but recent arrivals, such 
as tbe Indo-Chinese, with a 
tradition of extended families. 


could gain mosL 

It. is understood that the 
Cabinet has not yet decided on 
the mix of migrants for its 
long-term plan. There has 
been criticism in recent years 
that it has increasingly turned 
away from Australia's tradi- 
tional migrant sources, 

The new immigration poli- 
cy represents a victory for Mr 
Hurford, who had been argu- 
ing for seme time that in- 
creased migration would 
benefit the economy. 


Tokyo (Reuter) — Two Jap- 
anese companies said yester- 
day that they would use 
Europe's Ariane system to 
launch their satellites instead 
of the US space shuttle. 

The Space Communications 
Corporation and the Japan 
Communications Satellite 
Company said they had re- 
served places for 1988. 

The companies originally 
had intended to use the shut- 
tle, but said that the loss of 
Challenger in January had 
cast donbt on those plans. 

M Frederic d'Aliest, the 
chairman of Arianesp 2 ce, said 
he hoped to sign final con- 
tracts with the Japanese in the 
next few weeks. 

He denied that Arianespace 
was trying to take advantage 
of the Challenger disaster to 
win a larger share of the 
market, which he estimated 
would launch 110 to 120 
satellites between 1988 and 
1992. 

“Before this accident our 
company, on its own merit and 
with tough competition, had a 
50 per ceDt share of the market 
in the Western world,” he 
said. “We are confident the US 
industry has all the capability 
needed to recover.” 

He reiterated European 
complaints that Nasa set un- 
fair prices for shuttle 
launchings which did not frilly 
cover costs involved.

Manila (AP) - President 
Aquino said yesterday, she 
Would ask the people to decide 
whether United States mili-

Philippines. 

Mrs Aquino told Japanese 
journalists that she will hold a 
referendum after renegotiat- 
ing the military treaty with the 
US that expires in 1991. She 
did not say when the negotia- 
tions would begin. 

Mr Salvador Laurel, tbe 
Foreign Minister, told the 
Council for Foreign Relations, 


that the Philippines _ would 
observerthe treaty and uphold 

agreements that promote its 

security while striving for 
independence in foreign 
affairs. 

Meanwhile, about 60 Com-

Peking (Reuter) China 
yester day said it would contin- 
ue to pour millions of dollars 
into .its special economic 
zones even though they would 
not make a profit in foreign 
exchange for at least three 
years. 

Mr Gu Mu, the State Coun- 
cil member in charge ot 
China's four special zones, 
told a press conference he was 
confident that Shenzhen, the 
largest of the zones near Hong 
Kong, would make a foreign 
exchange profit by 199a 
The zones have been set up 
since 1979 to attract high- 
technology investment Bom 
abroad and produce 
but many of their goods have 
been sold to the domestic 
market 

Mr Gu said 43 per cent of 
Shenzhen's industrial 
Inst year was «P«£r “P

Tokyo’srail 
hold-ups lead

Tokyo — Private mil and 
bus companies went on strike : 
for about an hour in Tokyo 
yesterday, the first time in five 
years that private, transport 
workers had left their jobs 
(David Watts writesX 
For. the nine companies 
involved, services began not 
at 5 am but about an hour later 
than usual. This modest 
breach of service was a severe 
embarrassment to manage- 
ment and abject apologies 
were broadcast to travellers by 
train guards. 

Tbe dispute was quickly 
settled with a salary increase 
of 12,500 yen (£47.50) per 
month and a minimal bonus 
increase, reflecting the poorer 
outlook for the economy. 

The settlement is Jikely to 
affect other industries. Al- 
ready the steel and electrical 
appliance industries have 
inade the smallest wage agree- 
ments in 10 years, prompted 
largely by the strength of the 
ven, which is forcing Japanese

the secrecy lessens 


Twenty-five years 


after the first manned 


flight, Keith Hindley sifts 


through the latest evidence 



On April 12. 1961. space 
travel began when the Soviet 
Union launched Yuri Gagarin 
into earth orbit in his Yostok 
capsule. Gagarin's flight fol- 
lowed a scries of spectacular 
Soviet successes in space — 

Sputnik, the first artificial 
earth satellite, the flrst dog in 
space and the first space craft 
to photograph the moon's 
hidden side. 

More triumphs followed 
and in the eight years up to 
1965. i: seemed that whatever 
ih’e American engineers 
planned, their Russiap coun- 
terparts beat them every time. 
While the Americans" strug- 
gled to perfect quirky rockets 
that could launch very modest 
payloads, the Russians threw 
tonne-sized spacecraft into or- 
bit with a precision that 
brought two of them within a 
feu miles of each other. 

What made the Soviet suc- 
cesses all the more fascinating 
was the complete secrecy sur- 
rounding them. Little "infor- 
mation leaked out about the 
powerful Russian launchers or 
the masterminds behind 
them, especially the legendary' 
“chief designer” as he was 
always called. 

In reality, the Russian suc- 
cesses were based on one 
brilhant rocket design master- 
minded by one man. Sergei 
Pavlovich Korolev was a 
Ukranian. a trained aeronauti- 
cal engineer and a pilot. 
Arrested during a Stalinist 
purge in 1937. he was taken 
into a team developing mili- 
tary rockets after the war. 

Korolev was tough, daring, 
blunt and cunning. .An able 
organizer, he had tireless ener- 
gy and quickly mastered the 
an of exploiting the Soviet 
political system. His great 
chance came when the mili- 
tary wanted a missile capable 
of delivering atomic weapons 
to targets on the' east coast of 
the United States. Early Soviet 
nuclear bombs weighed over 
two tonnes and were very 



bulky. They would require a 
powerful launcher that could 
develop more than a million 
pounds of thrust. Khrushchev 
was persuaded to provide an 
immense budget and R-7 or 
Semyorka (“old -number 
seven”) was born along with a 
new missile lest range begun 
in June 1955. 

The first Semyorka explod- 
ed on launch in May 1957 as 
did several more. At last, on 
August 3. a launch worked 
perfectly. To convince a scep- 
tical world that the Soviet 
Union now possessed a nucle- 
ar armed intercontinental bal- 
listic missile (ICBMt, Korolev- 
suggested a demonstration of 
its power by using it to launch 
the first artificial earth 
satellite. 

The following month was 



Mastermind: Korolev was 
the mystery man behind the 
Russians' successes 
the 100th aniveisary of the 
birth of Constantin 
Tsiolkovsky. the Russian 
rocket pioneer and Khru- 
shchev recognized the propa- 
ganda value. It look Korolev 
six weeks to lash together a 
test satellite containing just a 
radio transmitter linked to a 
thermometer. Sputnik ! went 
up in October and stunned the 
world. The space race had 
begun and Korolev drew up a 
list of more ambitious space 
launches and the money for 
them was promised. 

Much heavier satellites 


packed with scientific instru- 
ments followed and the first 
dog was put into orbit. A small 
rocket was added as an upper 
stage and after six months of 
failures . satellites were des- 
patched to the moon. 

Khrushchev revelled in 
each success, often using them 
to consolidate his political 
position at home and to create 
a sensation during visits 
abroad. By 1960. he began to 
interfere with Korolev's plans 
in a serious way. Just as Soviet 
engineers were about to con- 
solidate information from a 
new development by launch- 
ing more -craft of the same 
kind. Khrushchev would can- 
cel subsequent flights and 
demand something new. He 
had no real interest in space 
research, but saw it simply as a 
propaganda tool to demon- 
strate Soviet technological su- 
periority. He closed a secrecy 
net around the programme 
and wouldn't even allow “the 
chief designer* to be named. 

Meanwhile, the United 
States was overcoming its 
early booster failures and 
launching a long series of 
scientific satellites for pure 
research. 

In October 1_960, a brief 
launch opportunity occurred 
to dispatch a space craft to 
Mars with the minimum ex- 
penditure of energy. With 
Khrushchev visiting the Unit- 
ed Nations that week some- 
thing was expected. In fact, 
two attempts were made to 
launch Mars craft during 
Khrushchev’s visit but both 
failed. He was not pleased. 

On the final launch attempt 
on October 23 1960. the 
countdown went to zero but 
nothing happened. After a 
long wait. the head of the 
Soviet military missile pro- 
gramme,- Marshal Nedelin. 
threw the safety book out of 
the window and ordered the 
launch staff on to the pad 
without the precaution of 
draining fuel and shutting the

Blast off: Vostok rocket launch is the 1970s. The Russians 
have kept this highly reliable system since Yuri Gagarin 
(top left) made his historic mbit in an earlier modeL 


rocket down safely. As the 
launch pad swarmed with 
people, the rocket suddenly lit- 
up. rose a few feet and then 
exploded. Perhaps 50 died, 
including 30 skilled engineers 
and technicians and Nedelin 
himself. Korolev was in the 
launch bunker and escaped 
unharmed. 

Meanwhile military pilots 
were under training as cosmo- 
nauts for the first manned 
space flight. The Vostok one- 
man capsules were being built 
and tested in unmanned 
flights. After two foiled at- 


tempts success came at last in 
August 1960 when two dogs 
were orbited and returned 
safely. Animals and craft were 
lost in more tests, but after 
rebuilding the remaining 
Vostok capsule, two complete- 
ly successful flights with ani- 
mals were made in March 
1961. . 

Soviet doctors decided that 
the first manned flight should 
be run by automatic pilot in 
case the cosmonaut was inca- 
pacitated, but.the men object- 
ed. Eventually the controls 
were locked off and the combi- 


nation, (one-four-five for Ga- 
garin) placed in an envelope 
stuck on the cabin walk In the 
event Gagarin was a passenger 
all the way. 

The Vostok craft carried an 
ejector seat to allow the pilot 
to escape if the booster foiled 
on launch. Retro-rockets to 
return the man to earth were 
fired by remote control from, 
the ground and the spherical 
Vostok capsule automatically 
bobbed around to expose its 
heavy side oh re-entry. Gaga- 
rin ejected at 22,000 feet and 
floated down by parachute - 
a fact that presented prob- 
lems for the international 
aeronautical authority, the 
FAL They declarer that they 
could only recognize the 
records claimed if Gagarin 
took off and landed, inside his 
spacecraft. After a long argu- 
ment, the records were recog- 
nized. 

Khrushchev again demand- 
ed new fears. Gagarin's trip 
was followed by a day-long 
flight by Gherman Titov. In 
1962, two cosmonaut!, 
Nikolyev and Popovich, were 
orbited at the same time, 
passing within a few miles of 
each other. Just over a year 
later, the world was stunned 
again to hear of two more 
cosmonauts in space at the 
same time, Bykovsky and the 
first woman in space, 
Valentina Tereshkova. Once 
again it was Khrushchev's 
idea to send a woman into 
space and . he demanded an 
ordinary Russian. Tereshkova 
was a mill worker chosen from 
a group of four women hastily 
trained for the flight. 

Meanwhile American pride 
was salvaged by two briefhops 
into space by Mercury 
astonautsin 1961. John Glenn 
finally made the first US 
orbital flight 10 months after 
Gagarin. Three more Mercury 
flights followed and the Amer- 
icans geared themselves up for 
their two-man Gemini and 
three-man Apollo space craft 
and a commitment to ajaotm 
landing by 1969. 

Again Khrushchev de- 
manded a spectacle to eefipse 
the start of the Gemini pro- 
gramme. The three*-man 
Soyuz capsule would not be . 
ready for at least two years but 
Korolev was told to put three 
Russians in orbit within a year 
and to arrange a walk in space. 
Work on the Soyuz capsule 
was halted and the Vostok 
capsule was stripped. 

The cosmonauts had to stay 
with their capsule on landing . 
and normally die thump down 
would have killed them. To 
make the landing survivable a 
small rocket was fitted to fire a 
few feet above the ground to 
deaden the impact The Vos- 
khod craft was bom. The 
result was a surprise three- 
man flight in October 1964 


Five months later, a second 

Voskhod carried two men 
aloft 'with an air lock. Alexei 
Leyonov became -the first man 
to leave his space craft and 
walk in space. But not every- 
thing went according to plan. 
After a brief spell outside

Glowing in the wind 


Prefacing the preliminaries of 
this year's BBC Young Musi- 
cian of the Year competition, 
to be screened next Monday 
(BBC2, 6pm) is a short docu- 
mentary on the previons win- 
ner, the young English 
clarinettist Emma Johnson, 
who at the tender age of 17 
caught the public imagination 
with a stunning performance 
of CruselTs Clarinet Concerto 
No 2. 



The documentary was 
filmed at the recording ses- 
sions for Miss Johnson's sec- 
ond record to show what can 
be achieved by the winner of 
the competition. 

It would be surprising, how- 
ever. if this year's recipient 
could match the extraordinary 
success of the teenager from 
Orpington, who in less than 
two years has established 
herself as something of a star. 
She has managed to do what 


Inner calm: Emma Johnson 


very few wind players have 
achieved — becoming a top 
soloist without having served 
an apprenticeship in orches- 
tras and chamber groups. 


By her 19th birthday she 
had played In gala concerts in 
the Barbican. London, on bills 
with John Dankworth and 
Andrei Gavrilov; played 
Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in 
Vienna; performed with top 


orchestras in this country and 
in Europe; and gives a live 
Eurovision broadcast to an/ 
audience of 20 million under 
the baton of Yehudi Menuhin. 

She has also performed 
before the Queen in a televised 
performance, survived a 
Wagon appearance, as well as 
establishing herself almost as 
a regular on BBCs Pebble 
Mill at One. And all this while 
studying English at Cam- 
bridge University. 

How has she done it? Lead- 
ing clarinettist Jack Brymer, 
who has watched her progress 
as well as helping and advising 
her on occasions, said: "She 
has an ability to really commu- 
nicate music to others". But he 
added: “Her main quality is 
her self-possession and inner 
calm which enables her to 
perform better when the red 
light goes on."

FRIDAY PAGE 




British children get a total of £600 million 
ever y year in pocket money. Lee Rodwell 
% . examines the figures — and the principle 


in the pocket 


H ow much pocket money 
go yon give your children? 
Fifty pence a week, a 

. pound'— or even more? 

According, to the Wall’s Pocket 
Money Monitor, compiled by Gal- 
lup, Britain's JO million five to 16 
year-olds get around £600 million a 
yearu pocket money, an average of 
£1.17aweek. 

Before you rush to hide fhis page 
°®P«ng it shouldbe 
Mded that age makes a difference: 
five to seven-year-olds get an aver- 
age 54p a week; eight to text-year-olds 
77p; ll to 1 3-year-olds £1.42 and 14 
to 16-year-olds£l. 98.lt is also worth 
^pointing out that there are regional 
diffe rences (children in Scotland 
setting the most and children in 
Wales and the Somh West getting the 
least) and, despite the movement for 
equality for women, girls still aver- 
age less than boys. 

Now whether these figures msir» 
you feel niggardly or munificent it is 
worth keeping them at your finger- 
tips for the next few weeks because 
the whole topic of.podret money is 
about to be raised by a six- part 
children’s series on Channel 4 
The Pocket Money Programme. 

The series — written by Alastair 
Pirrie and Maggie Drummond — 
takes a lively look at a range of topics 
from banks to BMX bikes, inflati on 
Kb to monster movies and, along the 
way, suggests ways of saving pocket 
money or spending it wisely. But the 
one thing it doesn't do is question 
the concept of giving pocket money. 

Maggie Drummond, a financial 
journalist who has two children of 
her own, admits that the concept of 
pocket money can be a difficult one. 
“You have to ask yourself what you 
are giving them pocket money for. 
People arc strange when it comes to 
money — some ford it almost as hard 
to talk to their children about money 
as about sex. And no mother to 

admit that her offspring spend all 
their money ofl sweets or 
Transformers. 

"But children are very materialis- 
tic. They are consumers now. and . 
they will be consumers as adults. ; 


You :; only -have to. look at the 
‘marketing ploys nsed by the banks 
and building societies (who still seem 


Stour custom they will have you 

life) to see how much competition 
there is for their custom". 

All very weU in theory, bat in 
practice does a weekly hand-out 
really teach children any useful 
financial lessons? Pru Kiading is not 
sure. She has two children, Alexan- 
dra, 10' and Thomas, eight. 

She says; “I had pocket money as a 
child and I fed itis an important part 
of a child's development to Irani 
how to budget, to realise that money 
doesn't grow oh trees and when it’s 
gone it'sgone.1 started giving pocket 
money when Alexandra was seven. 
Although .Thomas was only five he 
got some too, as h didn*t seem fair 
otherwise; • 

“Everything was fine until Alexan- 
dra became fnends with a boy whose 
parents didn't have tire same policy. 
They gave him money when he 
wanted jt” 

S he explained:** Alexandra 
would go off to the local she 
and spend all her money 
then there would be tears 
because she didn't have any left 
“Alexandra 1 is always saying every; 
one else gets £1 or more. My answer 
to that' is that when die has shown 
she can- spend it sensibly I will put 
her pocket money up. But if she is 
going to spend £1 a week on sweets, 
that's not good for her or her teeth. 

“Jt is difficult sometimes. When 
they have a bode fair at school it’s 
tempting to give her extra because I 
approve of books. But I don’t, 
became the principle is the same. 
And die has missed but on things die 
really wanted, to do because she 
hasn’t had the money. 

“She couldn't afford to go to the 
disco at school because she rad spent 
all her money, even though she knew 
it was coating up and I had said she 
must pay for it herself It seems a 
harsh lemon,- but perhaps it is the 
only way she will learn”. 



Called to account Will Hodglrinson, aged 16, with bis pocket-money financed record and poster collection

Some WUTs Pa** Mvw Men** by 
Gahp.WtttfenDtfa from Wen taflw 


Another parent who admits she is 
confused about the whole question 
of pocket money is Gay Shreim, who 
has a 16-year-old son Gideon and 
two younger children, Jamie, 7, and 
Daniel, 5. 

She says: “Whether having pocket 
money gives them an idea of the 
value of money or not 1 just don’t 
know. I do try to teD them that 
saving is good and that if they save 
up rather than spend it all each week 
they can buy something better. 
Jamie gets 50p a week and Daniel 
gets 20 to 30p. If they are given 
money as presents then it goes into 
their building society accounts. But 
with their weekly pocket money it is 
inevitable that it’s going to be spent 
on sweets or toys”. 

Gideon is at Frensham Heights 
school, in Surrey, where 16-year-old 
Will Hodgkinson is also a boarder. 
WiD explained the school banking 
system. 

“Yon come with a cheque — I 
think the school recommends about 
£60 — and you pay it in and are given 
a cheque book. When yon want to get 
some cash out, you get the cheque 
signed by your housemaster. Before 
this system l used to have pocket 
money but I think this works better. 
You can get large amounts out if yon 
wantto — although they can refuse to 
sign the cheques — but basically you 
manage your money yourself There 
are tunes when you don’t need 
money so you don’t get it out If you 
bad cash you might spend it anyway. 


Of course, if you are foolish and have 
a wild weekend you are left penniless 
for the rest of term. 

“I use the money for travelling to 
London or going home at weekends. 
I go and see friends or go to concerts, 
perhaps have a meal out. If I need 
clothes my parents buy them. If I 
don’t like the clothes they buy, the 
best plan is to wear them out quickly. 

“If I just want something then they 
make me pay for h. If it’s something 
big I ask for money at birthdays and 
try not to go out much so I can save. 

** When 1 was younger I used to get 
pocket money. I think it started 
when I was about five. I used to get 
5p for sweets and lOp if I wanted to 
save it, which I didn't because I only 
wanted sweets at that age. I think 
that was fair, though”. 

Wfl], as a younger son, probably 
had pocket money at an earlier age 
than his older brother. As many 
parents have found to their cost, it is 
hard to give one child in the family 
pocket money and not the others, 
although most famili es still seem to 
operate a system of age differentials. 
Kit when should you start giving 
pocket money — if at all? 

' s Penelope Leach, poims out 
in her book. The Parents A 
to 2 “Most pre-school 
children cannot understand 
money as anything but ‘treasure’. 
Try giving your very young child a 
coin. You will probably find that, if 
the circumstances allow he will at 



once spend it, happily swapping it 
for that comic but being quite 
uninterested in either the change or 
the possibility that he could buy a 
cheaper comic and a lollipop''. 

As children get older their attitude 
to money changes. Once they see 
other children with money to spend 
on sweets and toys, they will want 
money to spend too . 

One the other hand, some parents 
feel you have to start somewhere. 
Teresa Sienitiewicz, an accountant, 
has two children aged nine and ten. 
She says: “We used to buy things for 
them — after all the amounts 
involved are usually minimal for 
parents so it’s easy to be casual about 
iL But 1 felt they had to learn to 
manage money. Now they each get 
£1 a week You cannot stop them 
spending their money how they want 
— that is the only way they can learn” 

At some point in many families 
pocket money gives way to an 
allowance* 

Frances Faux hands over the 
family allowance every month to her 
daughters Sarah, 17, and Catherine, 
IS, both still at schooL On top of the 
£28 each a month they earn money at 
pan-time jobs. They also get £1 a 
week pocket money. 

Frances says: “I buy their school 
shoes and uniform but that is iL 
They have to pay for things like 
make-up and earrings and all their 
other clothes. I don’t veto their 
choice - it’s their money and the 
system seems to work.” 


6 My loving parents 
and adoring husband 

are mine because 
of your sacrifice. . . 


On March 28 (Friday Page) 
Dflys Jones described how she 
gave away her baby son for 
adoption, and her subsequent 
mental anguish. A reader, who 
was herself adopted, responds 
with a letter to her own mother 
Dear Mother. 

It gives me great pleasure to 
call you that for the first time 
in my life. Sadly it must also 
be the last. 

To all intents and purposes 
we are strangers, but I believe 
that you and I know better. 
The “bonding” which doctors 
are so keen to have us believe 
occurs at birth I believe starts 
at conception, but we don’t 
realize this until much later. 

It is very difficult for me, in 
opening my heart to you for 
the first time, not to give you 
some clue to my identity; the 
desire to do so is overwhelm- 
ing, but I know that for your 
sake 1 must noL 

I spent my childhood bask- 
ing in the knowledge that 1 was 
special, and indeed, 1 was one 
of those pink and gold chil- 
dren with brown hair and soft 
blonde curls. (All that has long 
since changed, but 1 hope I 
have learnt to make the best of 
what 1 have). I was loved and 
not a little spoilt, never 
spoiled. Was I happy? 1 was 
too busy being a child to 
wonder. It is only in retrospect 
that one asks such questions 
along with the ever changing 
ideas and philosophies on how 
children should be brought up. 

Eventually, after the usual 
ups and downs which beset 
the adolescent, I married. It 
didn't last and 1 think I would 
have been less than human if 
words such as “iff and 
“suppose” had not crossed my 
mind 

The first spark of curiosity 
about you showed itself six 
years ago. shortly after 1 met 
the man who would become 
my second husband It was 
just before Christmas and 1 
said “I wonder if she ever 
thinks about me”. My words 
surprised me. I had not been 
aware that I had been thinking 
about you. We talked about 
you. wondering for a while, 
and ihen went on with our 
lives. 

We never know what tricks 
fate has stored up his sleeve 
for us. It is probably just as 
well. The following year I 
miscarried a tiny scrap of 
humanity, which had you 
known us, would have been 
your grandchild The memory 
is still almost too painful to 
bear, talking about it is almost 
impossible and the tears flow 
as 1 tell you now. 


TALKBACK 


We were advised that preg- 
nancy could prove dangerous, 
even fatal to me. Until that 
moment I hadn't realized how 
1 ached fora blood link, which 
now I would never have. 

How curious, that parallel. 
You haven’t seen me since I 
was a baby and I have never 
seen you, but once again our 
lives touch emotionally. You 
see. my pregnancy was not 
planned either and we both 
lost our babies. 

This event triggered not just 
idle curiosity, but a deep need 
to know you. so, armed with 
what information 1 had. with 
my husband's help I went 
through the relevant channels 
and got a copy of my original 
birth certificate. It was surpris- 
ingly easy and on my birthday 
that year we took a trip. Not 
only did I find the house in 
which you had me (now I 
knew I had actually been 
born), but I also saw the bouse 
where you lived before and 
possibly after my birth. My 
husband was so excited that he 
went and knocked, but it was a 
Bank Holiday and there was 
nobody there. 

Looking back I realize how 
very fortunate it was that there 
was no one in to answer my 
questions. 

You see, once again our 
lives touched, but this time I 
was you. 1 know that as I think 
of you on my birthday, you 
also think of me. I know that 
as I cried for my baby you will 
have wept for me — and I 
know that much as I would 
yearn for the day when a 
stranger would knock on the 
door and say “Mother", I 
would live in constant dread 
of it ever happening. 

There is much I would like 
to ask of you. Do we look 
alike? There is much I would 
like to ask of you, not least of 
which is “why?". But 1 was 
never in your situation. I 
never had to make the deci- 
sion, which either way, would 
leave its mark for the rest of 
my life. What I do understand 
is the heartache. 

I pray that since my birth, 
life has been- kind to you. I 
hope that you have found 
peace, contentment and fulfil- 
ment in whatever you have 
chosen. The loving parents 
and adoring husband 1 have 
are mine for one reason alone 
— your sacrifice. I thank you ; 
from ihe bottom of my heart. 

Your loving daughter.

An ill breath from the West 


The western lifestyle may be 
responsible for the ap p arent 
increase in asthma cases. The 
present estimate for the UK. 
2.75 million, is higher than 
ever accordmgnlo some doc- 
tors, who also think that very 
severe cases are b ecomimg 
more common. 

That our lifestyle may be 
the culprit is s ug ge st e d by Dr 
Ian Greg* senior research 
fellow at Southampton 
University's department of 
primary medical care, in a 
paper published in Clinical 
Allergy. 

Hard evidence that a s t hm a 
fc is on the increase in western 
countries is rather scanty but 
epidemiological studies over- 
seas have unearthed cases 
where the incidence of asthma 
has risen as the country or . 
population adopted a more.' 
western lifestyle- 

Two examples are Papua 
New Guinea and New Zea- 
land. In Papua New G uinea 
asthma was very rare before 
the 1970s. By 1980 the preva- 
lence was 7.3 per cent among 
adults. New Zealand has seen 
the incidence of as t hm a 
among children double to 13-5 
per cent between 1969 and 
1982. Evidence is that the 
biggest increase in the country 
has bran among Maoris who 
have six limes the chanc e of

dying from asthma • as 
Europeans. 

Dr Gregg lists vehicle ex- 
haust, industrial effluents, 
pesticides and detergents 
among the possible causes of 
increased asthma but says 
■ these have never really been 
assessed. Another possible 
cause is food additives. 

“Additives could explain an 
increasing prevalence of asth- 
ma, not only in w est e r n 
countries but also in Third 
World populations, where the 
introduction of preserved 
food has been a salient feature 
of their contact with the

problems and to decide wheth-

MsAnneJecmiier, honorary 
consultant amf senior lecturer 
in obstetrics and gynaecology 
at the University of Notting- 
ham, has acquired an Ameri- 
can computerized machine 
which will allow her to carry 
out do the task in just 90 
seconds. The machine, made 
by Ceilsqft of New Yak and 
bought under a deal with 
Nottingham’s Leycor Labora- 
tories, will earn its keep in the 
private sector but Ms Jequier 
will use it for research. Only 
two other such machines are 
available in Europe. 

Its high price makes it 
unlikely that every infertility 
clinic will get one. But it may 
be possible for labs lo go " on- 
line ” and make use of the 
computer program over the. 
telephone. 

Meanwhile a few weeks’ 
work with the machine has 
already shown that conven- 
tional techniques grossly over- 
estimate the quality of sperm. 
Ms Jequier says She hopes the 
machine will allow much more 
accurate identification of fer- 
tile and infertile men. 

Greens beat the

A diet which 
contains a

Medical Re- ' 

Bpiantiqy , 

Staff at the MRCs Environ- 
mental Epidemiology Unit in 
Southampton correlated acute 
appendicitis rates In $9 areas 
of England and Wales with the 
local diet, as measured by the 
National Food Survey. 1979- 
1981. Areas where the most 
brnssels sprouts, cabbage; 
peas and tomatoes were eaten 
have die lowest appendicitis 
rates. 

Writing in the British Medi- 
cal Journal, Professor David 
Barker, Ji ied w of Ae writ, 
suggests these foods 
protect against; 
hnvteg a beneficial effect on 
the bacteria in the appendix. 

A positive correlation be- 




tween potatoes and appendici-

sta ti s ti ca l analysis suggests 
this was simply because those 
who ate the least green vegeta- 
bles were likely to eat the most 
potatoes. 

Safer travelling 
for your baby 

Most parents 
appear to be un- 
aware of the 
danger faced by 
babies who are 
not properly 
strapped in 
while travelling in care, ac- 
cording to two reports in the 
latest British Medical Journal. 
In the first few months of life, 
a forward-feeing baby seat is 
too big while a cot restraint 
may do little to prevent the 
baby being flung out of the cot 
in an accident 

The journal's reports claim 
that less than a quarter of 
parents strap their babies in 
without prompting. 

A number of models suit- 
able for babies up to nine 
months old, which can be 
secured in the front sealbehs, 
are now available. 

They comply with British 
safety standards and are de- 
signed so that the infant is 
semi-reclining and feeing 
backwards. 

In an emergency, the force 
will thrust the child into the 
back of the baby seat and not 
catapault him or her out The 
driver can keep an eye on the 
baby without having to turn 
round constantly — and 
dangerously. 

The seats cost about £30 
and the Child Accident Pre- 
vention Trust has begun a 
campaign to persuade health 
authorities to run loan 
schemes. 

Last week. Fife Health 
Board started a loan scheme, 
and the first ISO babies bran 
there will be given rate for the 
first nine months of their 
lives. An informal scheme is 
already running in south 
Warwickshire. 

Loan schemes are already 
well established in the USA, 
Scandinavia and New Zea- 
land. where backward-feeing 
infant safety seats have been 
de rigueur for more than a 
decade.

The Auomey General, Sir Mi-

selves in court facing a £16,000 
damages claim by Luton house-

year she brought a successful 
private manslaughter action 
against drug, pusher Gary Austin, 
who had injected her teenage son 
John with a lethal overdose, after 
the DPP refused to prosecute. 
Austin was eventually jailed for IS 
months. Now she will take the 
unprecedented step of suing both 
the DPP and Lhe Attorney General 
for her legal costs if St Albans 
Crown Court fails to offer her 
“adequate" expenses for her pri- 
vate action. "Because of this I lost 
my job and all my savings", says 
Mrs Williams. **I am asking for £1 
an hour for the 6.000 hours I spent 
working on the case, and £1 for 
each of the 6.000 letters I sent, as 
well as compensation for the small 
legal costs I incurred. It is very 
small beer compared with what 1 
have been through: 1 hold tbera

1 have been trying to imagine what 
would happen if the United States 
government signed an agreement 
allowing the Mexican government 
to exercise some sort of super- 
vision over the affairs ofTexas; to 
the Texans, such an agreement 
would be. to risk understatement, 
less than popular. “Remember the 
.Alamo” might become as potent a 
cry there .as "Remember the 
Boyne" is in Ulster. 

Argument by analogy has its 
dangers but can nevertheless be 
illuminating, and simply to sug- 
gest that the Mexican government 
might properly have a rote in 
Texas (or California) or for that 
matter the French in Quebec does 
help to make one realize just how 
extraordinary the Hillsborough 
agreement is, and how natural the 
Ulster Protestant opposition. 

The full consequences of the 
agreement still lie m the murk of 
the future, but it has already 
achieved what would have been 
thought- impossible — setting 
Protestants against the Royal-Ul- 
ster Constabulary. That may seem 
a piece of statesmanship worthy of 
George 1 1 1 and Lord North. No 
doubt there will be found those 
ready to defend this antagonism as 
an unavoidable price of the 
Hillsborough process. They might 
draw a comparison with France's 
withdrawal from Algeria, where de 
Gaulle's policies led the OAS 
diehards to turn on the force they 
had idolized, the French army. 

But such a comparison exposes 
the intellectual vanity of Hills- 
borough: de Gaulle’s policy of 
disengagement from Algeria was 
represented a recognition of a the 
force of political reality, of the 
existence inescapable fact of the 
native • M uslim majority. By 
comparison. Hillsborough seems 
whimsical in comparison: it dis- 
plays a policy framed to please a 
minority of the minority — that is 
to say, the SDLP. How has this 
follv come about? 

Political folly is ofien rooted in 
ignorance of history, and, unfortu- 
nately the English are both bored 
by history and unaware of it even 
when it directly affects them. The 
Scots and the Irish think dif- 
ferently because for us (I write as a 
Scot) history is a continuing 
process, as it is for the nations of 
Eastern Europe. There is much 
unfinished business: 1707 in Scot- 
land; the whole of the 1 7th century 
in Ireland. It is not too much to 


Ulster history 
lessons that 
go unheeded 

by Allan Massie 


say that the reason for England's 
consistent failure in Ireland rests 
in the English indifference to 
history. 

That rare Englishman Enoch 
Powell understands this, which is 
why he now finds himself 
representing an Ulster constit- 
uency. He observed in a Spectator 
review a year or so ago that for a 
politician there was no substitute 
for reading history. 

But how much have the mem- 
bers of the present Government 
read? How much — it is probably 
superfluous to ask -have the 
leaders of the Opposition? Does 
any of them know, for instance, 
that in 1833, Macaulay, speaking 
from the Whig benches in the 
Commons, defied Daniel 
O’Connell to give one reason why, 
if there was a parliament in 
Dublin, there should not also be 
one in Londonderry? 

The Liberator could not supply 
an answer; no one has answered 
adequately since. Yet Macaulay's 
question is still pertinent; it 
remains the basis for any serious 
discussion of the Irish question. - 

There never was an Insh state or 
a united Ireland, except under the 
British Crown. The strongest and 
most prolonged political effort by 
any group in the past 100 years has 
been that made by Ulster Prot- 
estants to resist incorporation in a 
unitary Irish state. They have 
consistently declined to be subject 
to a Dublin parliament, even 
when that parliament was merely 
to be granted Home Rule under 
the Crown. The establishment of 
the Republic of Ireland served 
only to strengthen the Ulstermen's 
resolve to be free of Dublin rule. 
These are historical facts. 

When Gladstone proposed 
Home Rule 200- years ago the 


Ulster Protestants had many 
friends at Westminster. Lord Ran- 
dolph Churchill saw that “the. 
Orange card" was the one to play: 
the Tories were resolute against 
Home Rule. It even broke the 
Liberal Party, the Whigs hiving off 
under Hariington and Joseph 
Chamberlain taking the Radicals 
into the Liberal Unionists. When 
Home Rule was revived a quarter 
of a century later some Tories 
were still sufficiently adamant to 
contemplate an army mutiny. 
“Ulster win fight, and Ulster will 
be right", said the Dublin -bora Sir 
Edward Carson. Anyone with eyes 
can see that Ulster's determina- 
tion and belief in the rightness of 
its cause has not diminished, 
though its support at Westminster 
has withered. 

In 1922 the North was given 
what Ulstermen had never in fact 
asked for a parliament of its own. 
For nearly 50 years there was 
comparative peace in Ireland. No 
doubt there was discrimination 

a gainst the Catholic min ority in 

the North, but this discrimination 
was nevpr sufficiently severe to 
provoke* either rebellion or 
emigration on any great scale. 
Eventually came the demand for 
civil rights, though in fact Catho- 
lics in Ulster enjoyed the same 
civil rights as their fallow citizens 
throughout the United Kingdom. 
Whatever measures of dis- 
crimination were actually prac- 
tised rested on no legal authority. 

This demand coincided with the 
first attempt of the provincial 
government led by Captain Ter- 
ence O’Neill to effect some sort of 
rapprochement with Dublin. As 
disorder grew,. Edward Heath 
suppressed the Stormont govern- 
ment. though logic suggests that he 
might have been wiser to 


strengthen it. The abolition of 
.Stormont inaugurated the policy 
which Westminster has continued 
ever since and which has come to 
fruition in the Hillsborough agree- 
ment; its aim has been to appease 
the Catholic minority in the hope 
of detaching it. from the IRA and 
Sinn Fein. * 

There is no evidence that this 
policy has worked or is working. 
Its corollary has been to embitter 
and inflame the Prolestant major- 
ity, with the results we now see. In 
short, Westminster's policy has 
been to pretend that the question 
Macaulay put to O'Connell was 
invalid and unimportant 

The optimism of such pretence 
is puerile. The government would 
do better to heed the wiser 
counsels of the man who was 
perhaps the wisest of all Conser- 
vative prime ministers, the third 
Marquess of Salisbury: “The op- 
timist view of politics assumes 
there must be some remedy for 
every political Dl, and rather than 
not find it, will make two hard- 
ships to cure one. If all equitable 
remedies have failed, its votaries 
take it - as proved without ax] 
ment that the one-sided remedies 
which are left must needs succeed. 

“One thing we know we can do 
in Ireland, for we have done it in 
India and elsewhere with popula- 
tions more unmanageable and 
more bitten we can keep the peace 
and we can root out organized 
crime. But there is no precedent in 
our history to teach us that 
political measures can conjure 
away hereditary antipathies which 
arc fed by constant agitation. The 
free institutions, which sustain the 
life of a free and united peor 
sustain also the hatreds of a 
divided people." 

-What is the Hillsborough agree- 
ment but a one-sided remedy such 
as Salisbury deplored? What are 
all the elaborate schemes pro- 
pounded in the last 15 years but 
political measures that are no 
more than fantasies conceived in 
the hope of “conjuring away 
hereditary antipathies”? 

Ulster requires no such chi- 
meras. It requires firm and fair 
government It requires the recog- 
nition of lhe truth behind 
Macaulay’s question: that die 
Ulster Protestants will not submit 
to a Dublin government But isn't 
that precisely what Enoch Powell 
who has read and pondered 
history, has been demanding? 


Mary Dejevsky analyses Gorbachov’s diplomatic shake-up 

Moscow’s new faces abroad 


Anatoly Dobrynin is malting his 
final farewell calls in Washington 
after 24 years as Soviet ambas- 
sador. In the few weeks Moscow's 
ambassadors in Bonn, London 
and Peking will be making similar 
rounds. The moves are part of an 
extensive reshuffle which reflects a . 
change in the face and possibly the 
direction of Soviet diplomacy. 

In the Soviet Union, the choice 
of an ambassador appears to be-, 
just as politically motivated as it is 
in the United States. Andropov’s 
accession to power in 1982 was 
followed by the appointment of 
career officials in the Soviet 
Commum st Party as new ambas- 
sadors to Poland, Bulgaria and 
Hungary. This was seen partly as 
the first stage in a necessary 
rejuvenation of the diplomatic 
cadre but also as an attempt by 
Moscow to reassert its authority in 
Eastern Europe, after a period of 
weak leadership during 
Brezhpev’s final years. 

The moves now taking place 
may be a continuation of the 
rejuvenation process begun by 
Andropov. But they also reinforce 
the impression that Soviet foreign 
policy has acquired new priorities 
since Mikhail Gorbachov came to 
power, and especially since he 
promoted the former foreign min- 
ister. Andrei Gromyko, to the 
presidency and away from every- 
day policy-making. 

The new priorities bring the 
superpower relationship back into 
the centre of Soviet foreign policy, 
but they also provide for other 
options should the incipient di- 
alogue with America come to 
nothing. Gorbachov's predecess- 
ors faced the failure of their 
attempts to block deployment of 
cruise and Pershing missiles in 
Western Europe and the break- 
down of the Geneva arras control 
talks without any alternative poli- 
cies. Gorbachov’s concern to build 
up his country's diplomacy in the 
Far East, and in particular to 
improve relations with China, 
suggests that he does not want the 
Soviet Union to be bereft of policy 
choices again. 

The new Soviet ambassador to 
Peking is (he only one to have 



Kvftskiasky: anas expert 
tipped for Bonn 

been named so far. He is Oleg 
Troyanovsky. who served until 
February as Soviet ambassador to 
the United Nations. During his 
nine years at the UN he had to 
weather the storm created by his 
country's invasion of Afghanistan. 
It was largely thanks to his urbane 
manner, excellent command of 
English and feeling for public 
relations (he spent some of his 
teenage years in the US while his 
father was serving as Soviet 
ambassador to Washington) that 
the Moscow's international pres- 
tige did not suffer greater damage 
during this difficult period. 

Troyanovsky’s willingness to 
adapt to the ways of his host 
country and take a high dip- 
lomatic profile casts him in the 
Gorbachov mould, despite his 
age — he is in his mid-sixties. At 
the same time, the appointment of 
so experienced a diplomat confers 
a seniority on the China posting 
that it has not enjoyed for 25 
years. 

Moscow's new appointments to 
the three Western capitals have 
not yet been announced, but a 
number of names have been 
floated. Two men are believed to 
be in contention for the Wash- 
ington posL One is the current 
Soviet ambassador in Paris, Yuli 
Vorontsov, whose nomination 
would leave another prestige post- 
ing vacant. The other possibility is 
Viktor Komplektov, a specialist 
on the US who became a deputy 


Dobrynin: to oversee rdatious 
with the West 

foreign minister three years ago. 

But whoever takes up the 
appointment will have to reckon 
with the continuing influence on 
Soviet diplomacy of former 
ambassador Dobrynin. He is be- 
ing recalled from Washington to 
join the Central Committee 
secretariat where he is expected to 
oversee Soviet relations with the 
Western world as a whole. 

The name most frequently men- 
tioned for London is that of 
Leonid Zamyatin, who has until 
now been a formidable figure in 
the Soviet foreign ministry. But 
his appointment would be a 
dubious honour, both for him and 
for London. It would mean 
Zamyatin’s effective removal 
from the domestic scene, where be 
has been head of the Central 
Committee's international infor- 
mation department for more than 
eight years, amounting to an 
honourable retirement posting for 
an ideological conservative whose 
face no longer fits. 

For some time Moscow has 
appeared to accept that hs in- 
fluence in London is circum- 
scribed by British government 
policy and by this country’s 
special relationship with the US. If 
Zamyatin is named as ambassador 
to London, his seniority will 
formally upgrade the post; his 
reputation for unimaginatively 
toeing the Soviet party line will 
not. Unless, that is. Gorbachov 
believes that Zamyatin is the man 


to crack the tough London nut. 

Gorbachov’s assessment of 
Moscow's diplomatic chances in 
Western Europe is most opaque in 
its possible choice of ambassador 
to Bonn. Oleg Kvitskinsky is the 
chief Soviet negotiator ~ in the 
space weapons section of the 
Geneva arms talks with the US. 
He has as.much experience of the 
arms control debate as anyone in 
the Soviet foreign policy establish- 
ment, and it was he who took the 
now legendary “walk in the 
woods” with US ambassador Paul 
Nitze that brought the previous set 
of Geneva talks — on intermedi- 
ate-range nuclear missiles — so 
close to success. 

As well as speaking fluent 
English, Kvitsinsky has the 
familiarity with Western ways and 
the sure public relations touch that 
Gorbachov requires of Soviet 
representatives abroad. He also 
has experience of West Germany, 
have been second secretary at the 
Bonn embassy during the 1960s 
and subsequently specializing in 
East-West German affairs at the 
foreign ministry in Moscow. 

The importance of Bonn as the 
potential battleground for West 
European opinion was identified 
by the US a year ago when the 
young, energetic and highly politi- 
cal Richard Bun was posted there. 
Kvitskinsky's would hold out the 
prospect of an epic duel between 
Moscow and Washington for the 
hearts and minds of West Ger- 
mans in the run-up to the German 
elections early next year. 

The Gorbachov appointments, 
for that is what they are, suggest 
the contours of a coherent foreign 
policy still in the making. Its 
priority will be to cultivate the 
superpower relationship while at 
the same time pursuing with 
renewed energy foe traditional 
Soviet objective of weaning West- 
ern Europe from foe Atlantic 
alliance. But this policy also 
contains a fallback position in foe 
parallel attention that is being 
paid to China. If judged sen- 
sitively enough, an improvement 
in relations with China could help 
release Moscow from foe tyranny 
of the superpower relationship. 


After more than 50 years of murky 
adventures. Goya's The Marquesa 
de Santa Cruz is returning to 
Spain. Why did the protracted 
battle for a young Andalusian 
noblewoman- lying on a day bed 
and representing the muse Euterpe 
become so important? 

The painting depicts the de- 
licious young marquesa lying, 
with vine leaves in her hair, on a 
crimson day bed with a lyre in her 
hand. She was a notorious figure 
at the Spanish court for her 
patronage of young toreadors and 
her vuiupluous little figure cer- 
tainly does not speak of virtue. 

In the 1940s General Franco 
hoped to give foe painting to 
Hitler as a very special gift. The 
lyre held by foe marquesa is 
decorated with a Greek pattern 
that looks very much like a 
swastika, which would have made 
it a peculiarly suitable gift for foe 
German leader. It was at this time 
that Sen or Valdes, a nationalist 
sympathiser, bought foe painting, 
but found it so alluring that he was 1 
not prepared to part with it. so the 
picture never got to Germany. 

Yesterday, Senor Javier Solan a. 
the Spanish culture minister, said 
that the outcome represented “a 
decisive action to protect Spain's 
an heritage and that of other 
countries which are faced by 
speculative pressures in foe art 


And so to bed for 
the Marquesa 


world, not always respecting 
countries’ internal laws”. He 
claimed that Spain was now a 
world leader in the protection of 
national art treasures and pointed 
out that the return of foe Goya was 
the last such move under the old 
law. Under a stricter law. which 
came into effect last year, anyone 
convicted of illegally exporting a 
classified work of art can be fined 
up to four times the object's 
worth. 

British newspaper reports at foe 
beginning of the year alerted foe 
Spanish authorities to foe planned 
Christies auction of foe Goya. 
Lord Wimborae bought the paint- 
ing last year from Pedro Saorin 
Bosch, a businessman who had 
obtained export licences in Spain, 
documents which Lord Wim- 
borne's lawyers have maintained 
were in order. 

The export documents are on 
official forms and carry the stamps 
and signatures of Spanish ministry 
officials. It is still unclear how 
these documents were put together 
and by whom. They may have 
been forgeries or the officials may 


have been suborned. It is dear, 
however, that foe export applica- 
tion did not pass through all the 
proper channels in Spain. 

The Spanish goverment con- 
tested their legality and m March 


won a High Court ruling clearing 
the way for secret negotiations. 
These concluded with a $6 million 
“indemnity', to be paid by Spain 
to Lord Wim borne as compensa- 
tion for the return of foe painting. 

The shadow of Spain’s Civil 
War. when all lands of evasive 
action was taken to protect art 
treasure, lies across the 
Marquesa 's wanderings. Accord- 
ing to some accounts her present 
stay in London, soon to end, is in 
fact a second visit In a variation 
on the theme of its being intended 
as a gift for Hitler, the accounts 
have the painting being purchased 
by representatives of General 
Franco. Once again, however, the 
Marquesa remained in Spain, foe 
property of the Spanish state. 

Later that decade the then 
director of the Prado pronounced 
foal foe painting “would add 
nothing” to the state collection 


and it was purchased by a Bilbao 
banker. In 1983 the painting was 
sold by the banker's heirs .to 
Bosch, reportedly for 25 million 
pesetas. But on foe disputed 
export document foe painting's 
value is given as 165 million 
pesetas - about £750.000. 

The heirs' motive in selling was 
said to have been to meet de- 
mands made on the family by 
ETA, the Basque armed separatist 
organization, to pay its “revolu- 
tionary tax". . . 

The painting’s second odyssey 
then began. It was smuggled out of 
Spain either on board a private 
yacht or, officials have main- 
tained, as cargo on an air flight to 
Switzerland. 

The Spanish authorities turned 
down an offer from Lord 
Wjmborne’s lawyers to buy the 
painting back for $12 million. 
Even foe agreed figure of $6 mil- 
lion is far more than what other 
Goyas can make on Spain's 
domestic an market In fen, the 
sum is not far short of foe Spanish 
state's entire annual art ac- 
quisition budget In this case, 
however, private donors and foe 
Madrid local authorities will put 
up almost half foe money.

is not enough 


Since foe Second World War, 
military thought has tended not to 
create its own demands of science 
but to absorb whatever science has 
produced. Procurement has there- 
fore seemed eclectic: rather than 
developing weapons systems that 
conformed to an overall tacticalor 
strategic policy, defence ministries 

have over-insured by pursuing as 

many- future technologies as pos- 
sible. It has become a truism to say 
that military doctrine is foe prod- 
uct rather than the parent of 
technology. . . 

This is best demonstrated in the 
field of nuclear weapons. The 
Manhattan project was not the 
fruit of deterrence theory: rather, 
foe atomic bomb was developed 
by nudear physicists driven by the 
fear that Germany might get the 
bomb first. With some notable 
exceptions, no serious attempt 
was made to integrate foe bomb's 
awseome destructive powers into 
a strategy until almost a decade 

after foe attacks on Hiroshima and 
Nagasaki The concepts that deter- 
mined today’s view of nuclear 
deterrence were first adumbrated 
and then refined after foe advent 
of the hydrogen bomb and the 
missile used, to deliver iL 

President Reagan's “Star Wars” 
speech of March 23 1983 was a 
dramatic departure from this pro- 
cess. Critics of American arms 
policy have contended that too 
many technological innovations, 
such as MIRV-cd warheads in foe 
1970s, have been adopted after - 
insufficient debate, that their full 
implications were not realized 
until they had entered the in- 
ventories of foe superpowers.- In 
foe case of Star Wars, foe objective 
was announced and foe debate 
initiated before foe technology 
was available. 

However, Reagan's speech did 
not, as he had hoped, capture the 
high ground of the nudear debate. 
For a year, the response of foe 
strategic studies experts ranged 
from ridicule to silence. In 1986, 
when we all give SDI consid- 
eration. organize conferences on 
its implications and respond to 
press debate, we forget the at- 
mosphere of 1983. Reagan's 
speech was ignored. To take it 
seriously was to invite scorn; not 
even his own administration fol- 
lowed it up. Until foe summer of 
1984 it seemed that. Star. Wars 
might be quickly forgotten. 

What caused foe delayed re- 
sponse? Strategic thought on both 
sides of die Atlantic is . still 
dominated by foe ideas of the late 
1950s. Their authors or their- 
authors’ pupils hold major po- 
sitions in government and: aca- 
demic life. Foi^th^se men, wharis- 
striking about foe nudear age fa its 
continuity. Professor Laurence . 
Martin, the 1981 Reith Lectnrer, 
has even attributed to nuclear 
weapons “the decelaratibn of 
history”. For such thinkers the 
tenets of deterrence have re- 
mained constant,, despite all the 
technological innovations in nu- 
dear weaponry since 1945. Indeed 
the nudear weapons systems 
planned for the 1990s — Trident 


and MX -are presented as up- 
dating the missiles already de- 
ployed. not as radically new 
technology. " 

Doctrine in foe past may hap, 
been confined to post-hoc .ration*

atomic bombs or even for foe'

To most strategic analysfa,-

profoundly threatening. It posited; 
a. different doctrine: rather than;

England’s wide 
boy star 




The West Indies Test series has 
not been a total disaster for 
England. One member of our side 

has scored consistently well .in 

every innings, and once was even 
top scorer. Yes, it’s that de- 
pendable but unsung hero. Extras. 
Yesterday, as he lolled beside foe 
hotel pool getting ready for foe 
fifth and final Test, I talked to 
little Johnny Extras about foe 
sheer grit and professionalism that 

has made bim England's only real 

success of the tour. 

It was, 1 discovered to : my 
surprise, the first interview he has 
ever given. Why was h, I askwfl 
him, that when some members of 
the England side could not go to 
foe bathroom without a journalist 
in attendance, he was given com- 
plete privacy by foe press? 

“Well Brian”, Extras told me, 
“I think it’s only naturaL I go in 
number 12, which is very low in 

the batting order, so people. don’t 

think of me as a glamorous player. 
Add to that the fact that I never 

score sixes, and very rarely fours, 

and you can see why people ignore 
me. But that's fine by me, as -it 
takes foe pressure off I can get on 
with foe job of accumulating a 
respectable score. 

“For i ns tance, in foe second 
innings of foe fourth Test, it was 

put about that Ian Botham had 

staged a mini-revival by hitting 

the top score of 25. Now, I made 

28, but nobody seemed to notice. 
Well, that’s fair enough by me; Ian 
needs a pat on foe -back and I 
would be foe last to step into die 
limelight. It’s just odd, as you say, 
that no one seems to notice. 
Maybe if they did, Td lose my 
scoring streakr 

As far as he can remember, 
Johnny Extras has never scored- a 
duck in a career which has teen 
him playing for every county in 
England. He always does well 
enough to get picked for the side, 
but never plays the really big

Two 


REASONS TO RETALIATE 




. * •* 


WLjbyu.nunie attack with 
sffikes against Libyan ships 

*S£T*T* o'issile install 
tions, the American retaliation 
was criticised on TeveS 
It was argued that 
J^aieiaon against Colonel 
Gadaffy was reckless since it 
would only provoke retali- 
ation m turn; that it would 
r^y support for the Ubyan 
leader both domestically and 
from, other Arab states; and 
that military action against 
terrorism would prove futile as 
long as the United States failed 
to tackle its root cause by 
jK^mg the Palestinian prob- 

: These arguments seemed 
specious at the time. The first 
amounts to asserting that if 
somebody attacks you, it 
would be reckless to respond 
in case somebody attacks you. 
Since that attitude, if trans- 
lated -into policy, would re- 
move all risk from terrorism 
and aggression, it would invite 
more of both. 

The claim that American 
retaliation would make Colo- 
nel Gadaffy a pop ular Arab 
hero was insulting to the 
Arabs. It suggested that they 
live in a world of make-believe 
and braggadocio and cannot 
distinguish ignominious 
posturing and defeat from 
heroic resistance. . 

No s t a t e, finally, let alone a 
superpower with world-wide 
interests, could accept that it 
had no right -to protect its 
citizens and property against 
attack until it had solved* a 
notoriously intractable prob- 
lem for which it had no direct 
responsibility. 


Events since-the dash in the 
G “lf of Sine have generally 
endorsed this scepticism. Arab 
support for the Libyans was 
distinctly pro forma. Reports 
from Libya itself, contradict- 
mg_ the impression from tele- 
vision news pictures of anti- 
American mass hysteria, 
describe a generally mild re- 
action. 

The Colonel himself, 
departing* from his usual prac- 
tice of praising those few 
terrorist acts few which he does 
not also claim responsibility, 
denounced the bombing of the 
Rome-Athens TWA airliner as 
inhuman and has now firmly 
denied _ any Libyan involve- 
ment in the bombing of a 
Berlin night-dub. He at least is 
showing nervousness in die 
face of possible retaliation 
even if others remain intransi- 
gent on his behalf 

This gain would be very 
theoretical, however, if the 
Libyan leader continued to 
support terrorism while deny- 
ing the fact That was, in effect, 
the charge levelled by Presi- 
dent Reagan in his Wednesday 
press conference when he 
claimed that Colonel Gadaffy 
was “definitely a suspect” in 
both the Berlin and TWA 
bombings. The President’s re- 
marks, accompanied as they 
were by a US naval bu3d-up 
near the Libyan coast, have 
prompted speculation that an- 
other retaliatory strike is in the 
offing. As a result, fresh criti- 
cisms of the idea of retaliation 
have been minted. 

The first is that Libya is not 
alone . in fostering terrorist 
activity. Syria and Iran are at 
least equally implicated. In- 
sofar as that is true — which is 


to a considerable extent — it is 
an argument rather for retaliat- 
ing against Syria and Iran than 
for exculpating Libya. 

But a right to retaliate 
against a terrorist state is not 
an absolute obligation to do so. 
In the case of Syria, for 
instance, prudence and real- 
politik have combined to per- 
suade the United States that 
more would be lost than 
gained by military action. 
Syria is, in military terms, a 
hard nut to crack. It is closely 
aligned with the Soviet Union. 
And the State Department 
cherishes hopes that Syria may 
yet play a constructive role in 
the Arab-lsraeti dispute. 

The second objection is that 
the evidence linking Libya to 
the recent bombings is in- 
conclusive. That is a reason- 
able defence against a charge 
in a court of law. But a 
different standard of proof 
applies between states in con- 
flict 

Terrorist training camps are 
stationed in Libya. Colonel 
Gadaffy has often proclaimed 
his involvement in terrorist 
actions, which are in effect acts 
of war, against the United 
States. Those boasts are sup- 
ported by circumstantial ev- 
idence of Libyan involvement 
It is against that background 
that his present denials should 
be judged. To demand that the 
United States should present 
detailed evidence of Libyan 
involvement in what happens 
to be the most recent atrocity if 
it is to justify retaliation 
against an inveterate enemy is 
to extend international law 
unreasonably in a way that can 
only benefit those states which 
ignore it altogether. — - - 


INFLATION IS STILL THE TEST 


Last night Mr Nigel Lawson 
e^oyed the opportunity to tell 
Nw York of the revival of the 
British economy.' Next week 
he faces a more uncomfortable 
test The monetary side of his 
strategy was expurgated from 
his Budget speech, on the 
excuse that MPs had in the 
past displayed some .im- 
patience with Mr ESwsdffs' 
Budget-day excursions down 
the motorways of monetary 
policy. Rashly, Mr Lawson 
promised all would be ex- 
plained in ApriL 

Since the Budget, the finan- 
cial markets have endorsed 
two reductions in bank base 
rates. The pound has remained 
steady; the ripples from falling 
o£ prices have subsided. Mr 
Lawson can, and does, extract 
great satisfaction from having 
weathered the storm with only 
one temporary increase in 
interest rates, and without 
having had to beg for member- 
ship of the Organisation of Oil- 
Exporting Countries. 

None of this, however, can 
obscure Mr Lawson's mone- 
tary difficulty. On Wednesday, 
just after the second cut in 
bank base rates had been 
endorsed by. the Bank of 
England, the monthly money 
figures showed the narrowest 
measure of money was well 
^thin target. But broad 
mbney - Sterling M3 — was 
running over the top of its 
range, which the Chancellor 
had jacked right up only in last 
month’s Budget- Yesterday, 
Mr Lawson said that there was 
scope for a further worldwide 
cut in interest rates. 

Targets for Sterling M3 are 
die oldest of the Governments 
monetary disciplines. As this 
measure of the money supply 
has become increasingly dis- 


torted by financial innovation, 
the Chancellor has shoved 
Sterling M3 into an old folk's 
home, though he cannot quite 
bring himself to commit 
euthanasia. The behaviour of 
broad money does not make 
easier Mr Lawson’s- task, 
which -is to .demonstrate that • 
felling:interest rates are a sign 
of economic success, arid not 
of a failure of financial control. 

Lower oil prices, easing 
shorter-term inflationary pres- 
sures worldwide, help to jus- 
tify the cuts in interest rates 
rippling through the world’s 
economies. This is a welcome 
development, • from which 
Britain should seek to extract 
its share of benefit. While the 
worst of the oil tempest threat- 
ened sterling, Britain had to 
widen; the gap . between its 
interest rates and those 
abroad; now it can safely seek 
to narrow this gap. Provided, 
that is, Mr Lawson can con- 
vince the markets that the 
foundations of his counter- 
inflationary strategy remain 
sound. 

FundeznentaJly, the guar- 
antee of good intentions is the 
nemesis that would await this 
Government were it to lose 
grip on inflation. Inflation is, 
as Mr Lawson claims, “judge 
and .jury” of his monetary 
strategy. The difficulty, as his 
critics have pointed out, is that 
it takes a long time to deliver 
its verdict. 

Mr Lawson’s latest favoured 
indicator is nominal national 
income “money gdp”. This 
does, indeed, bear a dear 
relationship to inflation. But 
money gdp cannot be mon- 
itored from day to day, or even 
month to month. It, too, offers 
judgment - but not the preven- 
tion of crime. 


As a short-term alarm sig- 
nals, the Chancellor favours 
narrow money — MO — but 
only as one among a battery of 
indicators. This enhances, 
rather than distracts, from the 
role of the exchange rate. It is 
with respeetto the pound that 
the Chancellor has greatest 
need to clarify policy.. * 

. It has become clear that a 
funderaental rule of monetary 
policy today ix a bias against 
rapid movement in the ex- 
change rate. Earlier this year, it 
appeared that the Chancellor 
might be changing tack, when 
he allowed the exchange rate to 
weaken rather than endorse a 
second rise in interest rates. 
Hindsight shows this to have 
been a gamble with the mar- 
kets; a judgment that the 
pound would steady of its own 
accord. 

This was a gamble that paid 
off and revived Mr Lawson’s 
reputation in the markets. But 
it left open another question: 
the extent to which, over time, 
the Chancellor was prepared to 
see the pound decline in order 
to improve British compet- 
itiveness. In the special 
circumstances of the beginning 
of this year, such a decline was 
a necessary correction to the 
changing price of oil. Calcula- 
tions by the Bank of England 
suggest that almost exactly the 
right degree of correction has 
now taken place. Mr Lawson 
needs to make clear that he is 
not prepared to contenance the 
kind of persistent depreciation 
that will compensate industry 
for its failure to control costs. 
That way lies the primrose 
path to counter-inflationary 
failure — one that felling oil 
and commodity prices can 
only temporarily disguise. 


“COHABITENSION” AT THE ELYSEE 




, A flash of temper from the 
prime minister, goaded be- 
vond endurance by the oppo- 
sition, the brief suspension ot 
proceedings and a walk-out by 
the Communists — in protest 
against the extreme right - 
combined to make the first test 
of parliamentary confidence in 
the new French government oi 
M. Jacques Chirac a lively 
affair. But he won his major- 
ity, if only just, with an 
minute speech to the National 
Assembly which was notable 
ftr its moderation and his own 
statesmanship- 

That is just as well because 

the announcement byPrea- 

dent Mitterrand at the Cabinet 
meeting in the Elysje palace 
only several hours before. that 
he would oppose part of the 
prime minister's privation 
programme, held out the 
promise of hard umesahrad 
for both men - P 0 *^! 

fA France. "Cohab, tension 
Lc Matin eaJled it, as 
yesterday's French press di- 
vided along political lines m 
assessing the outcome of an 

eV What IS surprised even 


government supporters has 
been the scope of the new 
government’s de-nationaliza- 
tion . programme — with 42 
banks and financial houses, U 
industrial groupings and four 
insurance companies due to be 
privatized by decree over the 
next five years. In the fece of 
that. President Mitterrand’s 
reaction has been, politically, 
quite inspired. A number of 
the firms and groups involved 
had been brought under state 
control by the then General de 
Gaulle following the liberation 
ofFrance in 1944, others by the 
Socialists since their election 
victory five years ago. By 
making his stand against 
privatization o f the former, the 
President has in effect told 
Chirac that “you don’t de- 
nationalize de Gaulle.” 

How far he can succeed in 
embarrassing his premier- re- 
mains to be seen. Chirac could 
circumvent the presidential 
obstacle by introducing his 
measures to parliament and 
seeking a vote of confidence. 
But this would cause delays 
and difficulties and perhaps 
necessitate/ political com- 


promise. Yet for him to back 
down in the face of 
Mitterrand's continuing 
instransigence would damage 
his own authority and political 
image. It is simply going to be 
tough at the top - as everyone 
knew it would be. 

Of those measures which are 
new, the government’s strong 
stance against terrorism is 
provoking most controversy. 
The introduction of special 
courts and a ruling that police 
can hold suspects for up to 
four days without trial reflect 
rising concern about terrorism 
throughout Western countries. 

Whether the adoption of a 
30-year prison sentence will 
deter the determined terrorist 
is another matter. It would 
seem unlikely. But it is argu- 
ably important for its symbolic 
value. The message which has 
come from Paris is that the 
Chirac administration is to 
pursue a determined anti- 
terrorist course — in close 
conjunction, it is to be hoped, 
with other Wesieru powers on 
both sides of the Atlantic. 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Attitudes to US 
take-over bids 

From Mr H. Morrogh. FRS, FEng 
Sir, The chairmen of BAT, 
Unilever and BP. in their letter of 
March 28. have done their jobs as 
required of them as repre- 
sentatives of companies with ma- 
jor investment interests in the US. 
However, to call the opposition to 
Genera! Motors' acquisition of 
Leyland Tracks and Land Rover 
“anti-American” shows lamen- 
table lack of understanding of the 
cause of this opposition. 

It is noteworthy - that they 
omitted reference to the similar 
rejection of the proposal of Ford 
with respect to Austin Rover. The 
opposition would have been the 
same if the proposals had been 
from Japan. France or Germany. 
So much for “anti- American ism”. 

Freedom to invest in all direc- 
tions is fine if practised by all 
without sanction and restriction. 
However, if 80 per cent or more of 
the automotive industries of the 
USA or Japan, or prance or West 
Germany were under foreign con- 
trol what do they think the 
attitudes of the governments of 
these countries would have been 
to the take-over of almost the total 
of the remainder by foreign in- 
terests? ... 

An economy of the size of the 
UK needs a strong automotive 
industry because its products are 
widely used domestically, it has 
important export potential and for 
strategic reasons. It needs to be 
efficient in production and 
marketing. It should be capable of 
being judged on these lazier as- 
pects. 

In this country such compet- 
itive comparison is possible — by 
virtual unrestricted (but some- 
times unfair) imports and by the 
existence of three (soon to be four) 
large foreign-owned producers in 
the UK — Ford, GM and Peugeot 
and shortly Nissan. The task u to 


get BL to achieve satisfactory 
.marketing -. and . production eh . 
ficiency. Perhaps this will require 
international co-operation — as 
between - -BL -and - Honda -and- 
perhaps with US companies — but 
not the complete take-over. 

The claim from Government is 
that such lake-oven will save jobs. 
This is perhaps true in the 
assembly plants but who doubts 
that there would be more than a 
compensating loss of jobs in the 
component supply industries. 
From where do Ford, GM and 
Peugot obtaurall the canrthey sell 
and components they use in the 
UK? ■ ; .... . . „ 

-JVhh. so tpuch^of our auto- 
motive requirements in the. OK", 
already imported of manufac tured . 
in part overseas and under foreign 1 
control a reasonable industrial 
strategy, would retain and 
encourage' a strong UK-based 
industry. This is not “anti- 
Americanism”.

Cereal prices 

From Mr Robert Saunders 
Sir, The table you . publish 
(March 28) shows that the 
exported 7,330,000 tonnes of cere- 
als u> the Soviet Union to a value 
of £785 million. If my pocket 
calculator is functioning correctly, 
this works out to a little over £107 
per tonne. 

This “knock-down” price is 
around the average price received 
by British cereal producers for 
feed grain. Yet Mr Michael 
Jopling wants to knock down this 
price still further, with all the 
consequences this would have for 
our rural economy. • 

His pretext for doing so is the 
size of the “cereal moan tain”, 
which you give as 15.3 million 
tonnes. I understand that the 
EEGs imports of cereals and 
cereal substitutes are annually in 
excess of this figure. 

Should not those concerned 
with the “cereal mountain” turn 
their attention to these imports 
rather than .to our own produc- 
tion? Not to do so is rather like the 
housewife who buys her veg- 
etables from the greengrocer when 
she has a well stocked kitchen 
n and an over full deep

‘Single guess’ on poly spending 


From Mr Max Weaver 
Sir. It is difficult to know how to 
react to Sir Keith's dismissal 
(April 9) of your front page report 
(April 8) that places in poly- 
technics are to be cut by 9.500 in 
1987/88. Are we. in the poly- 
technics, now to ignore the letters 
from the National Advisory Board 
secretariat and to assume that 
changes will occur primarily in the 
unit of resource? That would be to 
assume that John Be van and his 
able colleagues have done nothing 
more than produce an enormous 
Kid herring. 

The NAB is not so insulated 
from the DES that this conclusion 
is at aD plausible, and it is frankly 
preposterous for Sir Keith to 
pretend that there has been only a 
“angle guess” at the total amount 
of money that will be available in 
the academic year which starts in 
18 months' time and in respect of 
which students will be applying 
before Christmas for places. The 
NAB is relying, reasonably, on 
Government spending plans. The 
prospect of cuts in our own 
subject, law, seems both real and 
ridiculous; real because the NAB 
has. despite our counter argu- 
ments and strong representation 
from the professions, only been 
able to offer what it euphemis- 
tically describes as the “lowest 
degree of protection'* viz. a 17 per 
cent cut; ridiculous because the 
pressure for places from well 
qualified applicants is very great 
indeed and the professions with 
which we are particularly con- 
cerned see no case for a reduction. 

If I could cite, by way of 
example, the position at my own 
polytechnic, City, we offer — in 
addition to LLB and MA courses 
in business law and a substantial 
law programme on our modular 
degree, all of which are popular 
and viable courses on any view of 
the economics of higher education 
— courses leading to the common 
professional examination for non- 
law graduates intending to become 
solicitors (for which we areJimited' 
to 30 students per year and receive 
_well over 20 applications for every 
available place) and for the 
solicitors' finals. 

In the latter case we operate a 
“first come, first served” policy 
and are now fully booked until 
1989, with very substantial wait- 
ing lists. I could certainly teach 
more students in the lime I now 
devote each week to explaining 
this unfortunate situation to well 
qualified graduates determined on . 
a career as a solicitor.

From the National Secretary of the 
Association of Polytechnic Teach- 
ers 

Sir. The axing of 9.500 places in 
polytechnics and similar colleges 
is only the culmination of a senes 
of policy decisions which have 
logically and systematically under-, 
mined public sector higher educa- 
tion in England. 

Ever since its formation in 
1981, the National Advisory Body 
for local authority (and, later, 
public sector) higher education 
has pursued a programme of 
increasing student numbers in 
polytechnics and similar colleges 
while systematically reducing the 
resources available for them. So 
successful has been this policy that 
the Government are able, rightly, 
to claim that they have provided 
places for more students in higher 
education than ever before while 
at the same time maintaining 
standards of scholarship in the 
universities. 

Supported by the local authori- 
ties, by the union representatives 
of further education colleges and 
some principals of colleges, the 
NAB took the “moral” stand that 
it was more important to find 
places for students than to concern 
themselves with standards. Aided 
by their officers, by the HM1 and 
in a brief moment of aberration by . 
the Council for National Aca- 
demic Awards, the majority on 
NAB managed to convince them- 
selves that resources — books, 
computers, equipment, lab- 
oratories, lecturers — were not 
needed in order to assure stan- 
dards in polytechnics (only in 
universities). 

Persuaded by their own prin- 
ciples, they convince themselves 
that, if they took more students, 
the Government would, ipso facto, 
give them more money. What 
happened, predictably, was that, 
when the Government decided to 
give more money (the “switch” 
money) for science and technol- 
ogy. they directed it to just those 
institutions, the universities, 
which had (Hit -standards of pro- 
vision before numbers of students. 

Those bodies, such as the 
Association of Polytechnic Teach- 
ers. who challenged the policy of 
increasing access while dissipating 
resources, were branded as 
“elitist” and debarred from the 
counsels of NAB. We have no joy 
in being proved right: our mem- 
bers will suffer along with all staff 
who face loss of their jobs or 
further stress.

Trial by jury 

From Mr Charles Fyffe 
Sir. Mr J. T. Gladysz (April 4) 
offers reasons for abolishing juries 
that seem, at best, dubitable. 
There is still a need for impartial- 
ity. Judges, like the rest of us, are 
still not entirely free of political, 
and other, pressures. 

If “ordinary citizens are unable 
to understand a modern trial” we 
must change the legal system. 
Trials are not a game of “nuances 
and legal technicalities” to be 


played exclusively by judges and 
barristers. Defendants and wit- 
nesses are ordinary citizens too. 

Does Mr Gladysz want a return 
to the Court of Chancery of Bleak 
Housdl Juries are principally to 
warn our rulers (and, sometimes, 
judges), however little they may 
like it, how far they can go in 
deciding what is. and is not, 
criminal. It’s a protection we still 
need. 

Yours faithfully.

Way of Wren 

From Mr George Curtis 
Sir, Mr Manser (April 7) has the 
temerity to claim that Sir Chris- 
topher Wren would deal with the 
fire damage to his own building at 
Hampton Court by pulling it 
down, which it doesn’t need, and 
replacing it as new, not with a 
replica of his original work but 
with some new edifice, by implica- 
tion, in a wholly alien style. 

Tbe juxtaposition or ancient 
and modem would doubtless be 
hailed as “exciting”. The notion 
that Wren was too vain to copy 
himself, let alone anybody else, 
demonstrates a fairly sizeable 
ignorance of his handiwork. 


What little has been burnt out, 
and that it is so little is a 
tremendous compliment to the 
firefighters, is easily replaceable, 
as it was. by architects and 
craftsmen at work in this country 
today. Tbe building, so repaired 
will be an excellent example of 
20th century workmanship to the 
highest standards. If it is indistin- 
guishable from the original what 
higher compliment could be paid? 
Yours faithfully.

Alternative prayers 

From Mrs Maurice Wood 
Sir, 1 read with interest the letter 
from Professor Basil Mitchell and 
others (March 28) suggesting that 
“the problems of the modem 
world ” should lead many An- 
glicans to use again the Book of 
Common Prayer and draw on its 
deep spiritual resources. ' 

Her Majesty the Queen, mem- 
bers of her family, and her 
ministers are now continually in 
the target area as they steadily, 
with great courage, go about their, 
and our, business. What better 
time than this for the Church of 
England and Anglican churches 


across the world to use regularly 
the splendid and comprehensive 
State prayers of the old prayer 
book?Let the threat to Princess

encouraging our clergy to do this.

Threat to buses 

From Mr John Taylor 
Sir. In your thoughtful leading 
article, “Only one of London’s 
problems” (March 28). you say “It 
has never been clear (nor has the 
abolition exercise clarified) why 
Birmingham or Leeds should not 
run their own buses and fire 
service and police forces”. You are 
righL The basic technical consid- 
erations never were made plain to 
the public. 

As far as the buses are con- 
cerned the pas senger - transport 
executives (PTEs) were set up to 
cope with the travel problems in 
areas where a group of towns and 
cities have become interlinked by 
patterns of employment, housing, 
shopping, recreation, hospital 
catchment areas etc. 

Here in West Yorkshire the 
central 40 per dent of county area 
contains three quarters of tbe 


population and straddles the 
boundaries of alt the five district 
councils. The consequence is a 
complex mesh of travel demands 
to different centres. 

Through its operating arm. The 
Metro-N ationa l Transport Co 
Ltd. the PTE provides 48 inter- 
district links. Annually some 29 
million passenger journeys cross 
district council boundaries — 
equivalent to one third of the. 
county population every week- 
Sixty-seven per cent of passenger 
journeys within the county on 
PTE-supponcd rail services cross 
one or more district boundaries.’ 
Half a million people live in 
communities dependent upon 
cross-boundary services. 

The PTE has developed an 
integrated bus and rail network 
with a unified county-wide 
differential fere system on both 
buses and trains, instead of the 
former 1 8 individual scales, and 


yielding annually £17.65 million 
in social benefit and £3.64 million 
direct financial benefiL Five pri- 
vate enterprise bus operators take 
part in the scheme. 

Without the PTEs there would 
have been no Tyne and Wear 
Metro, no Merseyside Loop and 
Link, no light rapid transit plan 
for Greater Manchester or trolley- 
bus proposals for South and West 
Yorkshire. Schemes like these for 
superior, technically advanced 
passenger transport depend upon 
covering an area wider than just 
one district for their viability. 

All these excellem things are 
now at risk from .the 
Government's destructive and in- 
appropriate bus deregulation leg- 
islation. 

Yours faithfully.

APRIL It 1881 

Alexander II (1818- 1881), known 
as the “Tsar Liberator", 
succeeded his father, Nicholas I, 
in 1855. He survived three attacks 
on his life, but on March 13 (new 
style) he was assassinated by 
members of the Nihilist 
organization, ironically on the day 
he had signed a decree preparing 
a commission for reforming the 
legislation. AU the defendants 
except Hermann, who was 
pregnant, were hanged on April 
15. 


TRIAL OF THE 
CZAR’S 
ASSASSINS 

St. Petersburg, April 10 . 

Yesterday morning the Procurer 
Muravkff began his speech for the 
Crown, which occupied, with one 
or two intervals, no less than five 
hours . . . 

After the interval at noon for 
lunch the Procurer began the 
second part of his case, by giving a 
detailed description of the lives, 
careers, and characteristics of the 
six accused. He sketched the course 
of Risakoff, who threw the fust 
bomb at (he Imperial carriage, 
from the time that he left ha borne, 
came to St. Petersburg, entered the 
School of Mines, fell into the 
revolutionary meshes, and finally 
became a willing tool of the arch- 
conspirator Jelaboff. In some sense 
the guilt of Risakoff was extenuat- 
ed by the emphasis which was laid 
upon Jelaboff s influence over him, 
an influence which Risakoff had 
himself acknowledged in court. 
Jelaboff was portrayed as a type of 
the ambitious Russian Revolution- 
ary leader, and great stress was laid 
upon the feet that the late prisoner 
Goldenberg had spoken of him by 
name as one of the most important 
as well as genial members of the 
Revolutionary party. His career in 
the ranks of this party had 
extended over ten years. The life of 
Sophie Perofefcqja was next ana- 
lyzed. and found wanting.in every- 
thing that was womanly and 
attractive in her sex. although her 
position and connexion had given 
her every opportunity of receiving 
the best possible education that 
could be had. Leaving her home to 
propagate the ideas of her party in 
the national schools of the interior, 
she too became tbe blind executant 
of JelabofTs will and gave the 
signal for exploding both the mine 
under the Moscow Railway and the 
bomb on the Catherine Canal. 
Kibaichich. once a member of the 
Academy of Engineer*, was dis- 
posed of by a description of his 
chemical service to the party and of 
his revolutionary ideas for over 
throwing the existing state of 
society. Michailoff. as a simple, 
uneducated peasant and workman, 
was another instrument of 
Jelaboff, understanding little of the 
revolutionary and Socialistic ideas 
of his more intelligent companions, 
and devoting himself to set work- 
men at variance with their masters 
for the advantage of the revolution- 
ary cause. The case of the Jewess 
Helfmann was not dilated upon at 
any length. The prisoners Risakoff, 
Kibaichkh. and Jelaboff were men 
who discarded all moral and family 
ties and ail honest labour for the 
purpose of revolutionary agnation 
and political assassination, and the 
two women were equally devoid, il 
not more so. considering the aex. of 
all moral instinct and feeling . . . 

After a pause of an hour and a 
half, the four counsel for the 
defence began their speeches at 
half-past 7. each not taking up 
more than about a quarter of an 
hour. They all felt the difficulty of 
their task increased by the influ- 
ence over them of the terrible 
catastrophe of the 13th March, and 
made more or less feeble efforts to 
lighten the penalties in store for 
the prisoners. The counsel 1'or 
Michailoff maintained that as the 
latter had concerned himself solely 
with the economic coditions of the 
workmen, and not with the higher 
political ideas of the rest, he ought 
not to be classed with them, and 
pleaded for at least his life. The 
bait defence of all was made by M. 
Gerard for Kibaichich. He drew a 
picture of bow Kibaichich, like 
hundreds of others, had been 
thrown into his illegal and almost 
inextricable position by being sent 
from St. Petersburg after the 
murder of General Mesentzoff 
because he had once been in the 
hands of the authorities on the 
slight charge of distributing forbid- 
den books. The prisoner Jelaboff! 
defended himself, speaking with 
considerable force and boldness. 

... At about 2 o'clock the Court 
again retired, the prisoners being 
removed as before, and only at 7 
this morning, when it was quite 
daylight and the public, weary of j 
waiting, were dozing about the 
corridors of the court, did the eight 
judges re-enter and pronounce 
judgment. All standing, excepting 
the judges, the President read the 
sentence of death by hanging 
against all the prisoners. They 
received the sentence with perfect 
calmness as d indifference . . . 


Dressed as ham 

From Mr Geoffrey .4. K. Robinson 
Sir. Shopping in an unfamiliar 
greengrocer recently I noticed on 
the shelves packaged goods spe- 
cially prepared for vegetarians. 
What caught my eye was 
“Vegebanger” and “Vegeburger”. 
Vege banger in particular looked 
most appetising, if the illustration 
was anything to go by; Vegeburger 
looked virtually exactly like the 
conventional hamburger it was 
Obviously designed lo imitate. 

What puzzles me is why should 
vegetarians wish to doll their food 
up to look like the stuff carnivores, 
such as myself, prefer? Do they, 
underneath, suffer deeply from 
inferiority complexes? 

Yours faithfully. 

G. A. K- ROBINSON.

£40 Chippendale 
sold for £280,000 


By Hnon MaDaKen 


In most houses a Chippen- 
dale minor would have pride 
of place and the diffident 
owner would be constantly 
bringing it to the attention of 
his visitors. 

At Harewood House, how- 
ever, there are so many exam- 
ples of the work of the master 
craftsman that no less than 10 
of his minors have been kept 
in the Carpenter's store and 
other obscure corners since 
the 1840s. 

Yesterday, with other Chip- 
pendale pieces and decorative 
items by different makers, 
they were sold at Christie's for 
a total of just over half- a 
million pounds, which goes to 
the Howard Charitable Trust 
for the upkeep of the house. 

One pair of oval silvered 
mirrors went to an anony- 
mous bidder at £280,000 (esti- 
mate £50,000 plus). They are 
described in almost poetic 
vein in Chippendale's 1775 
invoice: “2 Exceeding neat A 
rich carved Gerandoles with 
ornaments and Treble 
Branches highly finished in 
burnished Silver and var- 
nished and wrought Pansand 
Nossels silvered &c_ £40.” 

The other mirrors proved 
equally popular and also sold 
well above their presale esti- 
mates. A pair of inverted heart 
shaped gutwood mirrors, sup- 
plied by Chippendale in about 
1770. made £64,800 (estimate-' 


£15,000 - £20,000) again go- 
ing to an anonymous bidder. 

Harewood’s near neigh- 
bour, Temple Newsam House, 
bought four Regency and Wil- 
liam IV black japanned coal 
boxes for a total of £5,445. 

A piece of furniture from 
another property which went 
for beyond expectations was 
an elaborate Regency circular 
table. The top was of inlaid 
marble and the base formed of 
bronzed ram and lion mask*, 
Egyptian figures and hoof feet 
This was bought by the Lon- 
don dealer Partridge for 
£66,960 against an estimate of 
between £10.000 and £15,000. 

At lower levels, the sale of 
English furniture, which made 
a total of £1,870,31 1 with five 
per cent bought-in. also did 
welL An oddity, which would 
be the envy of many a serving 
officer, was a Regency cam- 
paign bed which folded up 
into a canopied armchair. 
This made £4,180 (estimate 
£3,000 -£4,000). 

In a sale of old master 
paintings at Bo nhams, a set of 
four decorative and interest- 


ing, ifslightly primitive, 1 paint- 
ings of Members of the Order 
of the Knights of Malta in the 
eighteenth century, which was 
catalogued -as from tbecride 
of Francois Antomede Favray 
made £8.580 (estimate-£6,00G 
-£9,000).

Science report 


First light from a young star 

By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


A fascinating picture show- 
ing the first image of a new- 
born star is on a cover of the 
journal Nature. The flash of 
light was captured at the 
European Southern Observa- 
tory, cm the top of La Stilla, a 
mountain in Chile. 

An account of the recor din g 
of “first light from a young 
star" is reported by Dr Bo 
Reipvth, of Copenhagen Uni- 
versity Observatory, Den- 
mark, and Dr John Bally, of 
AT & T Befl Laboratories, 
HolmdeL New Jersey, in the’ 
United States. 

Their discovery is akin to 
hearing the first cry of life 
from a new babe, which rela- 
tives have been waiting to 
hear. For the patch of sky in 
which the new star, at the 
moment simply called Object 
50, was found has been in- 
triguing astronomers for many 
years. 

Especially light-sensitive 


microelectronic chips, referred 
to as charged-couple devices, 
- or - CCDs, picked ap the 
flashes of radiant enogy- The 
poises of light were c on verted 
into electronic signals, which 
were produced by computer to 
generate the “false colour” 
images. 

Subsequent observations 
with a radio telescope, at 
HobndeL mapping an area 
several times larger than Ob- 
ject 50, confirmed activity in 
the centre consistent with a 
new star. 

The birth of new stars, or 
more precisely what they teU 
observers about the evotation 
of the universe, is central to 
the con tinning debate between 
cosmologists. 

The stars of oht galaxy are 
separated by distances be- 
tween neighbouring stars that 
is difficult to comprehend on 
everyday experience. The 
mean distance between 


neighbouriig stars of some 
three light years is about about 
17,006 hffiioa miles. 


. Yet the tracts between them, 
forming part of the inter' 
stellar space of the adverse, is 
not empty- ft contains vast 
dusty deeds. They are esti- 
mated to account for a bat less 
than 10 per cent of foe mass af 
the galaxy. But they are 
aarudal and dynamic part of 
it, net least because they 
provide the raw material for 
new stars. The dost clouds are 
mostiy mm-hunineus. 


But Object 50 was found in 
the part of the sky containing 
active douds, in the constella- 
tion of Orion. It is an energetic 
region, which receives great 
attention for the expectant 
observer. This time they were 
rewarded.

OBITUARY 

DR C.I. C.BOSANQUET 


First Vice-CbancellGrof 
Newcastle University 


Dr Charles Bosamrafit. who 
died on April 9, SX was 
the first Vic&Oianc eflor o f 
the* Unrveraty of Newcastle 
upon Tyne; holding office 
from 1963 until be retired in 
1968; ’ • - . 

Learning, landowning, 
far ming and money tnacagfr- 
molt were all in his Mood and 
his h^hly varied t^ents 
served him. wefl- . . 

Charles Ion Garr Bosanqnet 
was bom in Athens on April 
19, 1903. His fether was 
diiyrtnr of the Briti sh Scho ol 
in Athens and later professor 
of classical archaeology al 
Liverpool University. He re- 
tired to Northumberland to 
(x > w hi "g the pursuit ofRoma- 
oo-Britisb archaeok^y and 
local history with forming die 
family estate at Rock, near 
Alnwick. 

Bosanqnet was educated at 
Winchester and gamed a 
scholarship at Trinity Goll^e, 
Cambridge, where ne took a 
first in both parts of the 
hirin ry tripos and rowed in the 
university trial eights and in 
the coUege boat which won die 
Ladies {date at Henley. 

After Cambridge, he had a 
spell on the staff of the 
Financial News and accompa- 
nied Sir Hilton Young to 
Geneva to the General Assem- 
bly of the League of Nations. 
It was there that he met 
Bar bara Schi effclin, whom he 
married in i 93 L 

Meanwhile he bad joined 
hazard Brothers, the mer- 
chant tank, and worked in the 
City until the ombreakof war 
when he transferred, to .the 
Ministry of Agriculture to be a 

-- — nrertAmfll n aai ttawf 


temporary pnndpal assista n t 
secretary. One of hi 


ids 

ftedcs was to emotnage the 
rapid mechanization of 
Britain's forms to mert war- 
time needs. 

. In 1945 he went to Christ 
Church, Oxford, to be treasur- 


er and remaned there oma 
1952 when he was appointed 
Rector of King's College, 
Newcastle, which was then 
pan of Durham University. 

He succeeded Lord Eustace 
Percy as rector and thereby 
became Vke-Chanceflor of . 

. Durham, alternating by tod. 
tion with the Warden of the- 
Durham colleges, who was - 
then Sir James Duff! 

.•This .system ofaterhath^ 

presented special difficulties; 
not. only because Sir James 
was such an effective chafr- 
man foil also because offeeep 
disappointment among many ; 
at Newcastle that an earlier . •: 
proposal for a separate umver- . 
azy there bad been rejected 
shortly before Bosanqurt took 
office. ... 

King's CaD^ge, Newcastle, «- 
and the Durham colleges had 
been as different as die two 
dries themselves: Durham 
with its ancienr buildings and * 
quiet academic traditions, 

is theology and the - . " 
arts, Newcastfowith its tradi- 
tions buried deep in-, .the 
industrial Nartlwast,'withil3 
thriving schools of medicine. - 
'mining . and ' naval 
architecture. 

Bosanqnet gave much time 
tostudem wdfore, an inier«t 
dare d by his wife, and on tas 
retirement he was. presented, 
with a tankard inscribed ~- To 
the students’- friemPi, tribute 
wefl deserved arai much 

apprecia t ed. 

Honorary degrees were con- - 
ferredon him by the uniyersi*. . . 
ties of Durham, Cincinnati, .j\. 
Sierra . Leone and the Qty. He “. 
devoted . hs retirement to the 
famil y estate and forms at 
Rock, which he had inherited 
in 1935, to. his responsibilities : 
as a development commis- 
sioner and to Ills interest in 
Winchester GoItegBi . - 

His wife, ja?D and three . 
daughters survive him. ...

H. Andrew Freeth, RA, the 
portrait painter and etcher, 
who- has died aged 73, had 
exhibited almost 200 works at 
the Royal Academy .during ires 
loi® career and these were fori 
a fraction of his vmied output. 

Born in Birmingham, on 
December 29, 1912, he stud- 
ied at the city’s CtiOege.of Art. 
His mother -greatly encour- 
aged him in ms studies, and 
had kept him at school -.at 
considerable sacrifice^ . 

He won the Prix. de Rome 
scholarship for engraving, a 
rue honour for a student at a 
provincial art school, and 
went to the British School at 
Rome from 1936-39. He was 
elected to the Royal Society of 
Painter-Etchers and Engravers 
as early as 1938. 

During the Second World 
War Freeth served as a major 
with the Intelligence Corps in 
the Mediterranean theatre; 
and, for a time in 1943, was 
loaned to the RAF Middle ' 
East as official war artist 

After the war he settled in 
London and became a mem- . 
her of the Royal Academy . 
(ARA, 1955; RA, 1965), ofthe . 
Royal Society of Painters in 
Water Colours (and their pines? 


ident from ! 974-76), the Roy- 
al Society of British Artists 
and the Royal Society of #*' 
Portrait Painters. 

His . woik was, therefore, 
regularly tin view at their 
exhibitions yet he still found 
time to teach at St Martin’s ’ 
School of Art arid at Sir John ’ 
Cass College, WhhechapeL - ..

of the

But his aqua-tints, such as 
“To C3iurch” (two. plain, d- 
derly women with their urn-". -.Q 
brellas) and “Pigeons UT . 
Trafofear Square", as welt as’ 
his watercolours of, for in-

Malo" and “The Beach at St

more appealing. 

. He was a cons ummate -

“Orange juice, please.” Tbese 
were the first words to be 
uttered, by the swimmer Dan- 
. can Gobdbew, last night's 
guest celebrity on episode 
4,216 of Crossroads (Central). 
For pathos they rivalled Hen- 
ry K issi ng er’s immortal .words 
in Dynasty. “That's right”, he 
says when Joan Collins breezi- 
ly complains she has not seen 
him since : Portofine. 1 was 
even reminded of the line 
altered by fise hist Tsar, 
Nicholas n, when in 1923, six 
« years after his putative death, 
* he was spotted by a friend mi 
the steps of Notre Dame de la 
Garde in Marsefiks. “Good to 
see yon again”, said the friend. 
“But yoH look pale.” “I don't 
feel very well”, conceded the 
former Emperor and Autocrat 
of all theRossias. 

Good health was very ranch 
the reason for the appearance 
of Mr Goodbew, “whose name 
is fitness itself". Unfortunate- 
ly. in opening the motel's 
leisure centre, he was reqaired 
to add a lew more fines. The 
manner .of their delivery re- 
vealed Ms fhtme is likdy to

Certainly his presence did 
not add any zest to a pro- 
gramme which zb its twenty- 
second year needs some 
invigorating resuscitation. (It 
does seem indicative of the rot 
that the affable Lorraine had 
to have swimming lessons for 
tife scene where she falls into 
the pool.) 

There is something Instw- 
less about all the. actors and. 
their lines. The formula is as 
overpowering as cheap, scent 

and smothers any smell of real 
life. (In fact each character 
gives the impression of going

What makes EastEuders so 
effective is that the tempta- 
tions of modern fife are admit- 
ted and explored. Yet, while 
the action is driven by charac- 
ters dropping like flies from 
fee path of simple virtue, there 
is an underlying fabric of 
conventional morality which is 
subtly disguised and delivered 
as homespun. 

Nicholas

into pictures the nuances and comedy 
of Forster's description. The remem- 
bered phrases become images and 
gestures. The film is punctuated with 
chapter-headings like those of the 
book, serving at once to ackowledge 
the literary source and sustain a 
distancing, ironic commentary. 

“I liked the characters and I liked 
the scenes”. Ivory explains with 
laudable simplicity. In John Huston's 
phrase, “the trick is in the casting”, 
and this is a skill in which fee 
Merchant-Ivory team always excels. 
Helena Bonham-Carter joins the 
succession of new actresses perfectly 
cast to roles that their films have 
introduced. She is Forster’s Lucy 
indeed, the innocent rebel seriously 
confused by her own change from 
tomboy into woman and the onset of 
unrecognized desire. The perfor- 
mance falls short only in one respect 
the loose vowels and uncertain 
consonants of a late 20th-century 
accent sit as awkwardly in a period 
film as an anachronistic hat Drama 
schools now need to teach classic 
English diction alongside other archa- 
ic skills like fending. 

Daniel Day-Lewis's period diction 
is a model, but then so is his entire 
performance as Cecil, the cold, 
affected, spoiled, ascetic fiance who 
suddenly softens into likeable, vul- 
nerable humanity when Lucy finds 
courage to throw him over. Day- 
Lewis has the tare ability to change 
beyond recognition, inside and out, 
with every role. Cecil has little in 
common with the young Londoner he 
played in My Beautiful Laundrette. 

It is invidious though to single out 
performances in a cast as faultless as 
any cast could be: it indudes a robust 
Denholm Elliott and dourly romantic 
Julian Sands as the Emersons, father 
and son: Judi Dench's florid Miss 


Lavish; Rosemary Leach's Mrs 
Honeychurch; Rupert Graves’s 
sweetly sparky Freddy, and Simon 
Callow's Reverend Beebe, bland and 
dumsy and intimating something 
more than meets the eye. 

Maggie Smith's Cousin Charlotte is 
also a marvel: a poor, dried-up. 
apologetic, unloved thing, bottling up 
the romance and sentiment and love 
that in the end she cannot keep from 
tumbling out. Maybe the ultimate 
strength of all these characterizations 
is that Ivory exactly shares Forster’s 
faith that everyone, however comic 
or awfiil or snobbish he may seem, 
has some good in him, some redeem- 
ing human quality. Everyone except, 
of course, the Reverend Mr Eager 
(Patrick Godfrey), the enemy of love. 

Ivory has a new director of 
photography (Tony Pierce-Roberts. 
who filmed Moonlighting and A 
Private Function) but his ability to 
capture the atmosphere of a place and 
time are unaltered. The oppressive 
serenity of the village of Summer 
Street is as real as the dusty, antique 
mystery of Florence or the shabby 
gentility of the Pension Bortolini; and 
all are predsety pinned down to the 
year 1908. There is an extraordinary 
sense of danger, emotional as well as 
. physical, in the scene of the murder in 
the Piazza Signoria. On the fatal rural 
excursion when Lucy is kissed — an 
event in its small way as traumatic as 
what happened in the Malabar Caves 
— there is the same sense as in 
Renoir's Partie de campagne that 
everyone has been touched by some 
mischievous erotic daemon of the 
place. - 

Adaptation can be a perilous road 
for films, but Merchant-Ivory- 
Jhabvala have achieved the near- 
impossible: without a moment’s 
betrayal of their original, they have

minutes long, it makes the

the player which ensure that

As always with Babbitt, the

A vibrant soprano in the 
pink of condition, she is 
capable of producing both 
scintillating coloratura and, in 
the final prayer, an appealing- 
ly veiled half-tone. She intro- 
duced the marvellous Act I 
aria “Bel raggio lusingfcier" 
with rich-timbred flourishes, 
melted stylishly into the lan- 
guid chorus melody, exposed a 
slightly under-powered bot- 
tom in the subsequent gym- 
nastics. but emphasized her 
secure top register by interpo- 
lating a couple of high Es 
without any noticeable strain. 

One worrying aspect is a 
seeming inability to reflect 
with vocal colouring her 
character's changing moods: 
even recollection of her 
husband's gruesome demise 
brought little perceptible 
change in delivery. This was 
particularly evident when she 
was in proximity to Marilyn

Henry Lewis appeared far 
happier supervising some

bles than in urging the orches- 
tra to convey excitements like

But. with orchestra and

creditable ensemble and the 
minor parts strongly cast, this 
is an enterprise worth hearing.

is about two friends in their thirties,

film Blue moves from being broke 
and deserted by his wife to a 
successful exhibition and a new 
conquest, while the carefree Eli is 
beaten down by the death of his father

In the end they are both natural

Eli of; inability ever finally to commit 
himself to the emotional relation-

are imprisoned by the obligatory

Time 

Dominion 

Up in the Andromeda galaxy 
one Lord Melchisedic, whose 
business is to monitor the 
state of the universe, decides 
the time has come to put 
planet Earth on trial for its 
continued existence. 

He arranges for a deputa- 
tion of national leaders to 
represent their delinquent 
globe; but the message is 
intercepted by one Captain 
Ebony, formerly the ruler of 
now-obliterated Pirate Star, 
who has been filling in time as 
a San Francisco disc-jockey. 
Nothing. Ebony thinks, is 
more certain to guarantee the 
death penalty than the appear- 
ance of politicians in the High 
Court of the Lfoiverse; so he 
sends Cliff Richard and a 
backing group instead, before 
gatecrashing the hearing as a 
character witness. 

Such is the basis of Dave 
Clark's musical, which sets a 
new record in the gap between 
imaginative poverty and Bab- 
ylonian material resources. 1 
am willing to believe that Mr 
Clark, and his co-writers Da- 
vid S names and Jeff Daniels, 
are as genuinely in fear of the 
end of the world as the 
millenarians of the year 999. 
The show's sincerity is not in 
doubt; but everything else is. 

Its main claim is as a 
special-effects event challeng- 
ing the cinema on its home 
ground. John Napier, the 
reigning wizard in this depart- 
ment. sets out to transform fee 
Dominion into a space-ship 
and then to unveil the won- 
ders of Andromeda. This 
means first a deafening and 
, blinding environmental blast- 
off whose main impact on the 
spectator is one of acute 
physical discomfort. Then 
there descends an object re- 
sembling a giant purple pan- 
cake. on which the blinking 
travellers take their place, and 
see three judges cantilevered 
in on levitated thrones backed

Recital 

Gedda/Parsons 

Wigmore Hall 

By eight o'clock it was time for 
the interval, and an hour later 
it was all over. But no one 
could describe as less than 
wholeheartedly generous 
Nicolai Gedda's long-awaited 
recital. It seemed as if he had 
been deliberately keeping time 
in reserve fora trail of encores. 
The encores were offered very 
much in the spirit of personal 
gifts not only to Charles 
Osborne, for whom the recital 
was given, but to a hall foil of 
admirers, each of whom 
doubtless remembered with 
affection a different facet of 
his 35 years of singing. 

Among the encores was 
Lalo's “Aubade" and a Swed- 
ish folksong: one, it seemed, 
for Osborne and one for 
himself. But the true climax of 
the evening came with Len- 
sky, the role in which he last 
appeared four years ago at 
Covent Garden. His aria from 
Eugene Onegin drew the lis- 
tener into the heart of the 
opera itself, so concentrated 
was its telescoping of past and 
present, so perceptive Geof- 
frey Parsons's accompani- 




wisdom to the earthlings. 

The drawback is that all 
such effects constitute only 
one trick. If it is used for its 
own sake, you merely sit back 
waiting for* the next. With, say. 
Starlight Express, the set was 
organically engaged in the 
action, so repetition did not 
matter. Here it is simply a box 
of tricks: and there is an 
absurd disparity between the 
sophistication of the mecha- 
nism and the feebleness of its 
theatrical impact. 

As for the plot, it is put 
together like a standard court- 
room drama dressed up in the 
comic-sinister costumes of 
synthetic mythology. Mel- 
chisedic, attended by a party 
of galactic knights at arms, 
comes on as prosecutor. Chris 
Wilder (alias Mr Richard) and 
his party look on. dropping 
lines such as "It’s crazy - it 
must be a dream” and getting 
snubbed by the judges, who 
seem to have been whiling 
away their spatial eternity by 
reading Agatha Christie. 

The prosecutor gets a song: 
followed after a nervy start, 
by a defence song from Mr 
Richard. As few of the words 
are audible, it is hard to sec 
how the trial is going. Ebony, 
with his own dancing group, 
whose costume much extends 
the definition of parti-col- 
oured tights, takes the stand, 
and comes dose to saying that, 
although the world is a rough 
old place, it stands a chance of 
being redeemed by rock music 
which brings people together. 

The judges nevertheless de- 
cide on a death sentence; but 
— surprise, surprise — before 
they push the button Laurence 
Olivier materializes and we all 
get another chance. Olivier, 
reduced to a huge, hairless, 
domed head, delivers lines 
like "We can all know every- 
thing without knowing why” 
in tones of regretfully patient 
serenity that almost makes 
them seem to mean 
something. 

Much passion goes into Mr 
Richard's singing, none of 
which got through to me; his 
acting consists mainly of 
shows of personal modesty. 
The dancing in Larry Fuller's 
production is extremely ener- 
getic and. except where the 
two contrasted groups finally 
move in unison, divorced 
from dramatic context, if you 
win pardon the expression. 

Irving War die 

ment, so luminous the central 
mezza-voce in which the song 
turns towards Olga. 

That same meticulous con- 
trol of half-voice had made 
Tchaikovsky's "At the Ball” 
seem like one long melodic 
sigh. It pointed, too. another 
key reason for the brevity of 
the recital. For. just as Geticta 
had cunningly kept time in 
hand, so he was throughout 
the most discreet guardian of 
bis own vocal resources. The 
same elegant artistry which 
has characterized every role of 
his career was now turned, in 
his sixty-first year, to the voice 
itself. 

It was a tense start 
Respighi's "None” and, of all 
things, Donizetti's “Una fur- 
tiva lagrima” sang the voice 
in; and Gedda's relaxed man- 
ner (his Bizet was positively 
Chevalier-like) belied the vo- 
cal tension and the somewhat 
anxiously shallow-breathed 
Gounod salon songs. 

For Ambroise Thomas, the 
voice came into its own: 
brilliance of timing and of that 
ringing, still resilient high 
register, with a sense of tender- 
ness compressed into urgency, 
made his “Adieu, Mignon” a 
fitting emblem of his art

Benazir returns from exile to preach revolution 


From Michael Hamlyn 
Lahore 

Miss Benazir Bhutto re- 
turned to Pakistan from exile 
yesterday calling for a revolu- 
tion. and began her campaign 
to oust the military president 
General Zia ul-Haq. by ad- 
dressing perhaps one of the 
biggest political rallies in the 
country's history. 

While in neighbouring In- 
dia, with almost 10 times the 
population and a continuous 
tradition of democratic politi- 
cal activity since indepen- 
dence, vast' political meetings 
are almost commonplace, 
they are almost unheard of in 
Pakistan, which has been 
ruled for most of its 39 years 
by military dictators. 

After taking eight hours to 
inch through the thronged 
streets and highways of La- 
hore, the capital of Punjab, to 
the open space where the huge 
crowd gathered. Miss Bhutto, 
who travelled in a gilded 
throne on the roof of a cab of a 
lorry, told the meeting that 
this was her referendum.

she told them. “First, do you

the crowd, which some enthu-

strong. (In fact, not more than 
a quarter of a million could 
have crowded into the open 
space in front of the Pakistan 
Tower.) 

“Second , do you want 
democracy?” she asked. 
“Yes.” the crowd yelled. “I 
have one more question,” she 
said. “Do you want General 
Zia to go?” "Yes,” screamed 
the crowd. “Zia out, Zia out, 
Zia out. Zia is a dog, he is."

people, and bathed Miss 
Bhutto in an emotional wel-

hundred women in the vast 
audience were seen in tears. 

She spoke from behind a 
sheet of steel a quarter of an

snipers' bullets, and she prom- 
ised that she would complete 
her father's work or die com- 
pleting it.

Miss Bhutto, too, indicated 
that she intended to woo the 
poorer classes by offering a 
minimum wage of 1,000 ru- 
pees a month (£50). 

Her foreign policy was indi- 
cated by the hostile anti- 
American remarks of many of 
her supporters.. Another indi-

Exchequer set to collect £45m whoever wins fight for Imperial 


By Alison Eadie 

The fate of Imperial Groop, 
the tobacco-based conglomer- 
ate. will be decided this after- 
noon when Britain's biggest 
corporate takeover battle ends 
with the counting of share- 
holders' votes on whether 
control should pass to Hanson 
Trust or United Biscuits. 

The battle draws to a dose 
at 3 pm. By 5 JO, shareholder 
votes will have been counted 
and a winner should emerge. 

The total cost of the contest 


will be around £95 million, 
split between die three 
adversaries. 

Hie size of the stake, the 
profits made by advisers and 
strategists — who get paid 
whatever the result — and the 
potential profits available to 
the winner are typical of the 
new brand of takeover now rife 
in the Gty. 

The three-cornered Eight be- 
tween United Biscuits ami 
Hanson Trust for control of 
Imperial Group effectively 
started on December 2 when . 


Imperial and United Biscuits 
tried to merge. The stakes 
have been huh because the 
prize — the Courage beer to 
John Player cigarette group 
valued at £2il billion — is a big 
one that would confer consid- 
erable benefits on the victor. 

A total of £7 million has 
been poured into advertising to 
win die hearts and minds of 
Imperial's shareholders, and 
the armies of professional 
advisers needed to wage the 
battle do not come cheap. 

Whatever the outcome, the 


Chancellor, Mr Nigel Lawson, 
will be lau ghing all the way to 
the bank. Out of total costs for 
the winner of around £65 
million, the Exchequer will 
pick up about £45 mflUon. 

Its rake-off take has been 
increased by Budget measures 
to tax takeovers — Mr Lawson 
imposed Vi per cent stamp 
duty on shares and other forms 
of paper issued in a takeover. 

Before the Budget the 
winner's tax costs womd have 
consisted of capital duty iff 1 
per cent on new shares issued 


and stamp duty of 1 per cent 
both on shares purchased and 
the cash element of the offer, 
coming to £29 mfllioa to £35 
minion. The Budget has added 
ft maximum £14 milli on to 
these costs assuming all 
shareholders take the all- 
paper offer. 

After the Chancellor's cut 
the next largest slice is taken 
by the underwriters — the City 
institutions which agree to 
support the cash element of a 
bid. United Biscuits' under- 
writing until today has cost 


£14 milli on and Hanson's has 
cost £13 million. Whoever 
wins wfll have farther under- 
writing costs as acceptances 
continue to drift in. 

The remaining costs are 
largely advertising and fees. 
Imperial, which has been 
fighting the unwanted Hanson 
offer and argmg its sharehold- 
ers to accept the agreed get- 
together with United Biscuits, 
has spent the most — £33 
million — on advertising. The 
main beneficiaries are 
newspapers. 


United Biscuits has spent 
about £2 million and Hanson 
Trust £13 mfflion on advertis- 
ing. A rueful Hanson Trust 
adviser said yesterday that if 
Hanson wins it wiB have to 
pick up the tab for Imperial's 
advertising.

With no sign of Spring as yet, 
warming roasts, stews and casse- 
roles are still favourites with 
most cooks. There are notable

many shops. Dewhnrst for 
example have sirloin steak from 
£2.79 a lb, braising steak from 
£1.39 and ground beef from 
£1.49. Sainsbnry have minced 
beef at 88p a lb. pork loin chops 
£1.18, ana New Zealand lamb 
chops reduced to £1.22 for a 
family pack. Fine Fame has 
topside and silverside at £1 .84 a 
lb. Presto have boneless fore- 
quarter of beef at £1.48 a lb, 
pork steaks at £1.44 and loin 
pork joints £1.26. Asda have 
topside and siiverside at £1.79

lemon sole £2.24 and fresh 
mackerel 66p a lb.

50p a lb and onions 10-20p a lb

have fed through, according to 
the Bank. 

However, it points out that 
both consumers and the com- 
pany sector (excluding the off 
companies) benefit from a 
combination of lower prices 
and improved competitive- 
ness. The Bank also argues 
that over the longer term, the 
United.- Kingdom “should 
probably be regarded as a net 


importer of oil**, and that the 
long-term effect of lower oil 
prices is favourable. It says 
that the ratio of oil reserves to 
oil consumption in Britian is 
very much lower than for the 
Oigmrzation of Petroleum

deed it is lower than for the

From Bailey Morris 
Washington 

There will be another 
worldwide cut in interest rates 
.before the tod of the year, Mr 
' Nigel Lawson, the Chancellor, 
said yesterdayFrance or the 
US wax expected to lead the 
way. 

Mr Lawson was speaking 
after high level meetings of the 
Group of five industrialized 
- nations at the Interim Com- 
mittee of the In ternational 

Monetary Fund. 

: He said that there was 
agreement among the largest 
nations thaT there should be 
another cut in interest rates. 

The Chancellor said he 
could not say when the cuts 
would occur but he expected 
rales to be reduced by the end 
, of the year. ‘The trend is 
.down,** he said. • 

Mr Lawson said that Mr 
James Baker, US Treasury 
Secretary, was. keen to see 
'Another rare cat similar to the 
one orchestrated al the recent 
London meeting iff the G5 
nations. 

' “Most others fed there is 
-scope for xooTe rate 
reductions,” he said.

Elders IXL yesterday ac- 
quired 16.6 per cent ofBrokcu 

HiU . Proprietary when it 

stepped into the takeover 
battle for Australia’s largest 
company. It was the biggest 
single day of trading Austra- 
lian stock markets have seen. 

Elders was expected to con- 
tinue buying BHP shares in 
London up to the limit of 19.9 
per cent after which the com- 
pany- must make a- formal 
takeover offer. 

More than 200 miflion BHP 
shares, worth approximately 
A us$I,500 miflion (about 
£750 million), changed hands. 
The price of its shares went up 
by as much as 80 cents before 
dosing at about $730 on the 
Melbourne and Sydney slock 
markets. 

Elders recently sold its hold- 
ing in Allied Lyons, the British 
food and drinks group, with a 
profit of$250 miflion. Brokers 
have speculated that the com- 
pany might have used lines of 
credit established for the Al- 
lied Lyons bid to finance 
yesterday’s buying.

Mr Lawson said there was 
general agreement among the 
largest nations that the yen 
must appreciate further 
against other currencies. This 
was despite Japan's recent 
statements that it would inter- 
vene in currency markets to 
hold the yen at present levels. 

“Everybody with the excep- 
tion of foe Japanese feds the 
yen must go higher.** Mr 
Lawson said, adding that

F H Tomkins bids 
£178m for Pegler 


FH Tomkins, the fast- 
growing industrial conglomer- 
ate, has launched an ambi- 
tious £178 million all-paper 
bid for Peg] er-Hatimley, 
which, if successful, wfllmore 
than double the group’s size. 

Fegler-Hattersley, a manu- 
facturer of industrial valves, 
put out a statement saying the 
bid was unsolicited and share- 
holders should take no action. 
It did not go as far as rejecting 
the bid. 


Unusually feu the bidding 
company, Tomkins's shares 
shot up 39p to a record 310p 
yesterday as the stock market 
took a favourable view of the 
bid. Fegleris shares also rose 
sharply to 560p, up 88p. 
Tomkins has a 3.7 per cent 
stake in Pegler, acquired since 
the end of January. 

Mr Greg Hutchings, the 
ambitious 39-year-old chief 
executive of Tomkins, is hop- 
ing Pegler will agree to his 
takeover approach, which he 
prefers to see as a merger. 

The logic of the bid Kes in

He said the tinting of the 
interest rate cut could not be 
pinpointed because the na- 
tions representing the domi- 
nant currencies will take stock

then consult with other central 
banks before making a move. 

There is no scope, he said, 
for further rate reductions in 
Britain at the present largely 
because of the experience over

figures. 

Rapid growth in sterling M3 
was regarded as a one-month 
aberration, although it did 
oblige the Bank to demon- 
strate caution on interest rates 
yesterday. But it remains of 
the view that the international 
interest rate climate has be- 
come more favourable, and 
that this reflects the improved 
prospects for inflation more 
than concerted efforts by fi- 
nance ministers to bring rates 
down. 

However, the Bank admits 
that the past rise in real 
interest rates has not discour- 
aged the growth of borrowing, 
which his increased rapidly 
since the early 1980s. 

The Bank’s view of the oil 
market is that the level of 
output overhanging the it

Schroder 
attacks 
Lloyds 
bid tactics 

By Richard Thomson 

Banking Correspondent 

The merchant banking ad- 
viser of Standard Chartered 
Bank, J Henry Schroder Wagg, 
said yesterday that it was 
complaining to the Takeover 
Panel about the behaviour of 
Lloyds Bank over its bid for 
Standard. 

Mr Nicholas Jones, a direc- 
tor of Schroder, said Lloyds 
was making it impossible for 
an orderly market in Standard 
stores to exist on the stock 
market. 

He said: “The Takeover 
Panel has a duty to prevent the 
creation of a false market in 
shares during bid battles and 
to stop misleading statements 
being made to shareholders or 
the stock, market So far 
Lloyds has broken all these 
rules by not saying whether or 
not h is going to make a 
formal bid." 

Mr Brian Pitman said yes- 
terday that Lloyds would be 
making no decisions on 
whether or not to bid until it 
had seen the annual report 
and accounts of Standard 
which are due to come out on 
Monday. 

Mr Jones told the Takeover 
Panel that Lloyds had made 
misleading statements about 
its intentions towards 
Standard. 

“Mr Pitman has said that 
Lloyds was looking at Stan- 
dard as a possible takeover 
target for some years, but that 
conflicts with other state- 
ments from Lloyds that it had 
only recently decided to bid 
fin* the bank. Lloyds also said 
that it would make a formal 
bid by the end of this week but 
now it says it will not," Mr 
Jones said. 

PR firms call 
off merger 

Merger talks have been 
called off between Good Rela- 
tions, and Valin Pollen, the 
two quoted public relations 
groups. The decision comes a 
few days after the companies 
welcomed the proposed £40 
million merger because of the 
advantages for both. But last 
night they said the it was not 
feasible at present. 

Good Relations shares, sus- 
pended at 176p. will resume 
dealings today. The chairman, 
Mr Tony Good, denied the 
breakdown had been caused 
by any financial problems. .

Almost the final 
solution for JMB 


Disposing of Johnson Matthey Bank- 
ers was never going to be the clean 
operation the Bank of England 
always insisted it was. 

After one or two minor disposals, 
the main element in the return of 
JMB to the private sector was 
initialled yesterday, when Westpac, 
the ambitious Australian group, 
agreed to pay about £40 million for 
the basic bullion and banking busi- 
nesses of JMB, giving its Mase- 
Westpac subsidiary a seat in the 
London gold dealing ring for a £17 
milli on premium over net assets 
bought. 

Notably, however, Westpac has 
not bought the book of bad and 
doubtful debts that brought JMB to 
disaster, parent Johnson Matthey 
group to its knees and the Bank of En- 
gland to its biggest crisis since the 
secondary bank failure of 1973-74. 

Those doubtful debts ruled out a 
clean sale, because none of the 40 
banks which expressed an interest 
wanted to take on the interminable 
process of litigation both against and 
on behalf of JMB that has grown up 
as the Bank of England has tried to re- 
cover the money. 

In any case, as the men at the Bank 
now concede, there is an unhappy 
logic about treating the hunt for the 
missing millions as a separate opera- 
tion, more akin to a liquidation than 
to the running of perfectly viable 
continuing businesses. 

These rough edges mean that it is 
still not possible to draw a line under 
the total cost of the whole affair. It ap- 
pears that JMB as it existed when the 
crisis broke in October 1984 has lost 
about £220 million out of its nominal 
loan book of £480 million. 

Most of those losses have already 
been taken by the former parent 
company, Johnson Matthey, which 
lost its investment of perhaps £120 
milli on and was forced to chip in a 
further £70 million for the privilege 
of ditching the whole operation into 
the hands of the Bank of England. 
Since then, the state, via the Bank, 
has effectively put up £1 39 million in 
terms of new capital and indemnities 
with outside banks — including the 
other members of the gold ring who 
welcomed Mase- Westpac in place of 
JMB yesterday — having had a 
further £25 million called-in indem- 
nities. 

The Bank of England eventually 
hopes to clear its controversial capital 
injection, which so embarrassed 
Nigel Lawson in May last year, and 
perhaps to lose only its £25 million 
share of the excess loss indemnities. 
The costs in terms of Bank of 
England time and its political status 
as a result of the affair are 
incalculable. 

Even that assumes that the Bank 
will realize the £25 million written 
down value of the remaining doubt- 
ful loans. This looks realistic, given 
the highly professional way that 
David Walker, JMB chairman, and 
his Bank colleagues have approached 
tbe problem and the successes made 
in recoveries, 

JMB’s commodity and other busi- 
nesses in the United States have still 
to be sold. These could make £25 


million to add to the £7 million 
already raised from minor sales. And 
there is always that lawsuit against 
JMB's auditors which the Bank of 
England remains anxious to pursue. 

Westpac seems to have a good deal, 
gaining a business with £900 million 
of gross assets and a seat at the gold 
ring that is particularly valuable for 
its existing international bullion busi- 
nesses. Westpac will inject a further 
£30 million into the new Mase- 
Westpac and use that name in the 
gold ring. 

So the name of JMB will eventually 
disappear from commerce. It will 
always remain painfully engraved 
into the history of the City 

Tax relief in a mess 

There was such an immediate wel- 
come for the Chancellor's Budget 
initiative in creating personal equity 
plans to avoid tax on share income 
and capital gains, that this further 
expansion of the monstrous variety 
ofi tax concessions on different forms 
of saving has gone relatively 
unremarked. 

John Kay, retiring director of the 
Institute of Fiscal Studies, has now 
brought the subject back into the 
arena of discussion at the institute's 
post-Budget conference. 

Since we now have some special 
regime of fiscal privilege for so many 
forms of saving, he reasons, Britain 
effectively has a bastard form of the 
expenditure tax recommended in the 
IFS Meade report on taxation of 
income, with which Mr Kay was 
closely associated. There is some 
truth in this, even though the 
introduction of personal equity plans 
and the Business Expansion Scheme 
for new capital in unquoted compa- 
nies has been balanced by sharply 
reduced tax incentives for investing 
via life insurance. 

Had the Chancellor not been 
tricked by the pension industry into 
dropping attacks on its concessions 
(when many pension fends have 
turned out to be rolling in surpluses), 
these changes might have formed 
some coherent plan to redirect in- 
centives from institutional to per- 
sonal investment 

In the event as Mr Kay correctly 
argues, we now have an unholy mess 
of concessions, rules and time limita- 
tions to qualify for tax reliefs. 

“What we need”, argues Mr Kay, 
“is a single coherent regime to apply 
to all these different kinds of saving; 
and there can be little doubt that it is 
pension fending that provides the 
model, as the US has established.” 

Mr Kay wants a full-blown expen- 
diture tax. Short of that if the 
superior concessions presently en- 
joyed by institutional pension fends 
are to stay, they should surely be 
generalized for personal investment 
of savings. A flexible method was 
outlined in the proposal by Lord 
Vinson and Philip Chappell for 
personal investment pools or PIPS. 
Nigel Lawson appropriated the 
mechanism but produced in his PEPs 
a half-hearted Whitehall compromise 
that adds to the complexities rather 
than starting to sweep them away.

€ TEMPUS 



year for 



JfejO TiniOrZmc’s 9J5 per r*»nr 
increase, in attributable prof- 
its to. £236 million, with 
per store up by a 
ainiiar proportion to 76 .lp, 
.:■» 50 distorted by currency 
L conversions as to disguise the 
tn« extent of the company’s 
achievement. Any mining 
company which event stands 
still at the moment is doing 
well. One which generates 
almost £1 billion in cash is 
doing very well indeed. 

. The most vivid illustration 
of the currency problem is 
that costs dropped sharply 
■from £5.23 billion to £4.53 
billion almost solely because 
of the translation effect. But 
the cruriai feet about RTZ is 
that,' with the unfortunate 
rand marginal exception of 
Cornwall, its many business* 
es around the world are 
strong and profitable 

.The recent re-rating of the 
shares was in large part a 
recognition of this. Any im- 
provement in metal prices, 
particularly copper and 
aluminium, would have a 
'dramatic- impact on p ro fi t s . 

. - .For the moment, however, 
RTZ has to put up with poor 
ipetal prices, which depressed 
«*b6 metals sector’s contribu- 
tion io 21 per cent of earn- 
ings. ' The exception was 
uranium. Resting made net 
profits of £26.5 million after 
benefiting' from strong de- 
mand from electricty utilities 
and from sales being denomi- 
nated in dollars. . 

So, after the peculiar effect 
of currency translation Africa 
chipped in with net attribut- 
able profits of no 'less than 
£38 million on a turnover of 
•just £314 million. 

Industry's share of profits 
also fell, this time to 48 per 
cent. - While cement prices 
went up for the' first time in 
three years, borax, glass and 
'the engineering side ail suf 
from slack demand. 
: The -weaker dollar did not 
help profits from America, 

. But to the rescue came 
energy, chiefly in the shape of 
the 29.8 per. cent stake in 
Enterprise Oil The first full- 
year earnings from Enterprise 
came- to £16.3 million, al- 
though RTZ Oil and Gas was 
more or less unchanged at 
£14.6 million. 

This year’s Iowcf oil prices 
win obviously depnss earn- 
ings in the energy sector, but 
they could also present RTZ 
Kirn sometemptingjakeover 
targets, arid the .group as a : 
whole shouktgsm from lower 
mining costs and increased 
world economic activity. : 

Wiihlbedjvidendnpby 10 
per cent ip a total of 22p, 
7ving -a yield of 3 per cent, 
e shares are not underrated. 


S 

Burmah Oil 


The sale of the Bahamas 
terminal, announced yester- 
day, must be regarded as 
something of a coup for 
Burmahu Anything short of 
outright sale would probably 
have left the company with 
unlimited commitments to 
ty rent to the Bahamian 
_Dvemmenl for the terminal 
site. -As it is, Burmah has 
taken an extraordinary loss of 
£21 million in 1985. 

With the disposal of five 
tankers at a further cost of 
£9.1 million and the write- 
down of its two remaining 
ships to scrap value, Burmah 
can feirly be said to have 
extricated itself from the 
legacy of over-expansion in 
shipping, dating from the 
early 1970s. Even the two 
remaining Ships are breaking 
even oh a cash basis, as the 
costs of lay-up of the one are 
being met from the charter of 
the other. 

Burmah has been busy 
restructuring elsewhere. The. 


sale in 1985 of most of 
Quinton HazeB, Rawlplug 
and other non-core business- 
es was complemented with 
strategic acquisitions in spe- 
ciality chemicals. Potential 
future losses on the LNG 
: contracts are being made at 
the rate. of about £4 million a 
year for the five years beyond 
1998 for which the carriers 
have no contracts. 

This leaves Burmah with a 
bit of restructuring outstand- 
ing. Sales of the rump of 
Quinton Hazdl, QH Auto- 
motive and Partco, and other 
businesses including Maccess 
and Kerry Ultrasonics, are 
expected , to raise up to £40 
million in .1986. Oil produc- 
tion contributed 12 per cent 
of profits in 1985, and this is 
likely to be well down in 1986 
as Thistle is in decline and, of 
couree,the oil price is much 
lower. The company looks to 
be in good shape financially. 
Gash flows in 1986 will be 
healthy without the drain of 
shipping and the Bahamas 
terminal. Write-offs are prob- 
ably at an end, and debt is 
down to 30 per cent of 
shareholders’ funds. 

A bid will be unwelcome, 
but hungry predators could 
return with renewed appe- 
tites. Tie stockmarket seems 
to thinks so. The shares have 
bucked the trend in oils, 
rising 26p to 363p on 
yesterday’s news. 

Laing/Mowlem 

Yesterday’s news from two of 
Britain's leading building 
contractors, John Laing and 
Mowlem, centred largely 
around their non-contracting 
businesses, such is the state of 
the industry. To keep growing 
both companies have had to 
diversify on a large scale. 

Mowlem's profits from 
construction fell from £7.6 
million to £6.4 million, but it 
still managed to lift group 
profits from 10.6- million to 
£13.1 million. 

John Laing however in- 
creased its bunding and engi- 
neering profit, and that 
contributed to increased prof- 
its of £34.1 million, up from 
£303 minion, before tax. 

The two are however not 
strictly comparable as 
Mowlem takes profits as each 
contract progresses, whereas 
laing tends not to lake any 
until the end of a contract. 

- 'Both, were glad of; their 
newer” activities. .-.In 
Mowlem's case Bnebler In- 
ternational, its American lab- 
oratory equipment company, 
which it floated off last year, 
contributed £5.6 million 
Which is more than half the 
pre-interest totaL 

And while it has been 
successful in gaining new 
building work, there is now 
more emphasis on manage- 
ment contracting. In addition 
there is the new excitement of 
various docklands develop- 
ments including Stoiport 

Whereas Mowlem has only 
recently entered the 
housebuilding market 
through the acquisition of 
Booth, Laing isan established 
housebuilder and last year 
sold 2^00 homes very profit- 
ably. It has great hopes of its 
property business and other 
new areas. 

The market seems to prefer 
Mowlem’s diversifications. 
At 41 2p its shares are trading 
on a multiple of 1 1.8 prospec- 
tive earnings, which repre- 
sents a two-point premium to 
Laing’s rating with its "A” 
shares at 408p. 

That could .reflect 
investors’ worries about Sau- 
di Arabia, but Laing 1ms had 
to chaige £6.98 million below 
the line last year and this 
should be the end of the 
matter. 


RHM to amalgamate 
chocolate companies 




Ranks Hovis McDougall is to 
amalgamate its three bulk 
chocolate manufacturing 
companies • . . . 

The new group wul hold 60 
per cent of the 45 , 000 -tonne 
British market of bulk choco- 
late for further manufacture. 

The Stewart & Arnold, Cax- 
ton Group - its turnover will 
be about £60 million — brings 
together the technical re- 
sources of the companies in a 
market which is feeing in- 
creasing competition from 
French and Belgium imports

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Institutions flood back 
as outlook brightens 


Institutional investors re- 
turned in force yesterday, 
pushing the FT 30 share index 
back oveT the 1400 leveL 

They were encouraged by 
the cheerful outlook for infla- 
tion and interest rates and a 
flood of favourable statements 
from a broad spread of 
companies 

After four days of drifting 
prices in which the the FT 30 
had fallen nearly 50 points it 
gained 25 points to close at 
1401.5 while the FT-SE 100 
share index raced away to 
dose at 1690.3, a gain of 31.3 
points on the day. 

- Industrials bounced back 
with Glaxo 52p higher at 
1015pand!CI 17p to the good 
at934p. 

BICC was op 18p to 358p 
on news of an Australian 
listing for a subsidiary, while 
British Telecom recouped 6p 
to 268p now that the final call 
has been made. 

Tobacco companies were to 
the fore following an Ameri- 
cas federal court ruling fa- 
vouring the producers in the 
cigarette warnings case. BAT 
Industries went up 45p to 
4I8p while Grand Met, at 
41 8p and Rothmans at 154p 
improved 13p and 6p res- 
pectively. 

Takeover speculators were 

? *ven their daily boost by an 
H Tomkins bid for Pegler- 
Hattersley. PegJer, a strong 
market in recent weeks, was 


ahead another 8Sp to 560p 
while Tomkins was up 39p to 
3i0p. 

There was evidence of 
American buying in certain 
quarters. Jaguar, for example, 
jumped 40p to 478p and Lex 
Service Group was another 
good spot at 381p, up 14p. 

Of the numerous company 
statements crossing the tapes. 
Rnberoid at 271p, Hevraeo 
Smart 66p, John Mowlem 
4l2p, Evered 3l0p, William 
Baird 6l5p, and Bemrose 
183p, advanced between 8p 
and 45p. 

In contrast Cookson drop- 
ped 28p to 520p on disap- 
pointment with the 30 per 
cent increase ‘in earnings and 
Rio Tinto-Zinc also failed to 
please at 719p, down 5p. 


Oils picked up with the spot 
price, helped by good results 
and the sale of a loss-making 
terminal by Bnnnali, 27p 
firmer at 364p. Hooting Petro- 
leum gained IZpmore to 120p 
on further reflection of 
Wednesday's figures. 

Profit-taking clipped 5p 
from Torner & Newall at 226p 
and Smith Industries lost 
another 1 3p to 29 1 p on further 
reaction to Wednesday’s half- 
time statement. 

• Weir Group, of which F H 
Tomkins has been mentioned 
as a possible predator, fell 8p 
to 1 34p but better than expect- 
ed profits added 2p to Simon 
Engineering at 228p. 

McKeciuue. another specu- 
lative favourite, improved 
Up to 224p ahead of next

Clearers poised for 
wider role in Japan 


From David Smith, Tokyo 


British banks are set to play 
a major role in the opening up 
of the Japanese securities in- 
dustry. County Bank Asia, a 
subsidiary of National West- 
minster, has already been 
invited to apply for a securi- 
ties licence in Tokyo. 

Subsidiaries of the other 
clearing banks arc expected to 
be included in the next round 
oflicenccs. towards the end of 
this year. 

Japanese law, specifically 
Article 65 of the Banking and 
Securities Regulations, re- 
quires that banks own no 
more than 50 per cent of 
securities operations. Because 
of this. National Westminster 
has gone into partnership with 
BP and the Swire Group to set 
up the Hong Kong-registered 
County Bank Asia. 

Lloyds Bank, through its 
Lloyds Merchant Bank arm. 
intends to specialize in the 
Japanese bond market, after 
establishing an appropriate 50 
per cent-owned subsidiary. 

Barclays will merge the 
Tokyo representative offices 
of Barclays Merchant Bank 
and de Zoete & Sevan in June, 
while Midland will operate 
through Samuel Montagu. 

Both banks have reached 
tentative agreement with as 
yet unnamed partners for 
subsidiary status. 

Currently, the four major 
British banks all stress differ- 
ent areas of activity. National 
Westminster is first in the 
securities field and is actively 
expanding its foreign ex- 
change dealing operations in 


Tokyo, with particular em- 
phasis on Swaps. 

Barclays is the only one of 
four the clearers to have irusr' 
banking status in Japan. 

Mr Michael Tomalin.* 
Barclays general manager for. 
Japan, sees the management 
of certain types of non-discre- 
tionary funds, the so-called' 
Tokkin funds, as a particularly 
promising area. 

Lloyds is strong on expon 
finance in Japan, which will b^- 
under lined if the proposed 
takeover of Standard Char- 
tered goes through. Standard- 
Chartered has four branches 
in Japan to two of Lloyds 

Midland is the only one oi 
the four to have a Japanese 
national heading its local op- 
eration. Mr Keiichi Yoshida. 
Midland has been successful/ 
in managing Japanese invesl-f 
mem in Britain. 


Ex-statesmen urge 
UK to join EMS J 

Former national leaders 
meeting in Japan, yesierdaf 
called on Britain to contribute 
to world economic stability by 
joining the European Mone- 
tary System immediately. f 

The former leaders, include 
ing Here Helmut Schmidt o\ 
West Germany, Mr Pierrt 
Trudeau of Canada, MrTakec 
Sukuda of Japan and Serioi 
Adolfo Suarez of Spain, saic 
full British membershipoftht 
EMS is a necessary first ste[ 
towards securing exchange 
rate stability berween Europe 
the US and Japan.

The Bank's annual survey 
of developments in interna- 
tional banking and capital 
markets, published today in 
the Quarterly Bulletin, focuses 
on the “intense competition” 
between financial intermedi- 
aries in the securities market, 
which it argues has created 
pressure to innovate as a 
means of winning mandates 

and compensating for lower 
fees and spreads. 

It lists five key innovations 
whose use developed marked- 
ly in 1955: 

• Note issuance facilities 
(NIFs), first arranged in 1981. 
but with the strongest growth 
taking place since 1984. In 
1985, the Bank points out, $33 
billion of NIFs were arranged, 
bringing the total of under- 
written NIFs in place to $60 
billion. 

• Eurocommercial paper fa- 
cilities, first developed to- 
wards the end of 1 984. During 
1985, the Bank calculates, at 
least $16 billion of 
eurocommercial paper facili- 
ties were arranged. 

• Financial futures. These, of 
course; are fairly long-estab- 
lished, but the range of con- 
tracts has increased. However, 
eurodollar interest rate con- 
tracts remain the most used in 
both the United States and the 
United Kingdom. According

fli Opening up by Japan of the 
euroyen and samurai bond 
markets. 

• Measures to open up the 
franc eurobond market by the 
French Government in April, 
1985. and the decision to 
permit a commercial paper 
market in France last 
December. 

• Liberalization of the marie 
foreign bond sector in West 
Germany from last Mav. 

• Further changes in Holland 
and- Italy. 

• Measures to facilitate the 
issue of short-term sterling 
bonds with matunues be- 
tween one and five years m the 
United Kingdom. 

The Bank says these 


changes have led to an increas- 
ing number of examples of the 
intermediation of capital 


to the Bank, these involved 
open interest of approaching 
$200 billion in the two coun- 
tries together by the end of 
1985. The Bank also points to 
the development of forward 
rate contracts (FRAs) as a 
significant innovation in 
London. 


• Straps, where the market 
grew rapidly in both 1984 and 
1985. By the end of 1985, 
there were estimated to be 
about $200 billion of swaps 
outstanding, with the volume 
of interest rate swaps consid- 
erably exceeding other types. 

• Options. Currency options, 
which have Men traded on the 
Philadelphia Stock Exchange 
since 1982, were introduced 
on the London Stock Ex- 


change and the London Inter- 
national Financial Futures 
Exchange in 1985. However, 
the Bank points out that the 
international bond markets 
have long provided instru- 
ments such as convertible 
bonds and equity warrants, or 
even capped floating-rate 
notes, with some of the same 
characteristics as options. 

The Bank argues that world- 
wide deregulation has played 
its part, along with innova- 
tion, in bringing about a 
growing integration between 
what were formerly discrete 
market sectors. It lists a 
substantial programme of de- 
regulation measures in the 
capital markets of several 
major economies in 1985, 
notably: 


intermediation of capital 
flows between investors and 
borrowers in the same country 
through international mar- 
kets. It points out that the 
development of interest rate 
and currency swap techniques 
have played a key role in the 
integration of markets, and 
discerns a possible “shift in 
attitudes” among market par- 
ticipants co “accepting and 
even favouring innovation as 
a continuing feature”. 

In the future, the Bank 
argues, changes in the eco- 
nomic environment may be 
met with new financial tech- 
niques more quickly than in 
the past. It points to growing 
interest in finance through the 
issue of short-term paper as a 
development of particular 
significance.

In February alone, more 
than $3 billion in capital was 
sent out of Mexico by nervous 
investors concerned about the 
health of their nation's 
economy- 

Mr Walter Wriston, former 
chairman of Citicorp, startled 
a luncheon audience at the 
Manhattan Institute when he 
said.'** Most people believe the 
flight of capital from Latin 
America on deposit in New 
York and Miami exceeds the 
total capital remaining in 
those countries." 

This continuing naemor-

rhage of resources prompted 
Mr Wriston to say. what 
government finance ministers 
have also stated. “There is no 
point in lending money to 
Mexico until it lets its curren- 
cy float, brings inflation down 
and reduces its deficit Until 
this occurs, there is nothing a 
lender can do to help." 

This “domestic side" of the 
debt crisis is now dominating 
negotiations. But developing 
nations are highly critical of 
the notion of even tougher, 
more specific conditions at- 
tached to loans from banks 
and the IMF. 

Mr David Mulford, assis- 
tant US Treasury Secretary, 
alluded to the new emphasis 


when be said in Atlanta this 
week that “there are many 
non-pain ful reforms debtor 
nations can take". 

The sources of capital flight 
are numerous but the domi- 
nant cause is fearful investors 
who have little faith in the 
management of their own 
economies. 

Corruption is another cause 
as shown by recent events in 
Africa and the Philippines. 
From 1978 to 1983, when the 
Philippines borrowed an esti- 
mated $19.1 billion, more 
than $8.9 billion left the 
country. 

Mr George Ayiuey, of Gha- 
na, who is an assistant profes- 
sor of economics at 
Bloom sburg University in 
Pennsylvania, estimates that 
during the height of the oil 
boom in 1978, corrupt Nigeri- 
an officials were transferring 
$25 million a day out of the 
country. 

The study also estimates 
that President Sese Seka of 
Zaire amassed $5 billion in 
Swiss bank accounts - 

The excesses are countered 
by a few solid success stories, 
-such as that of Brazil. Even 
modest reforms launched by 
the new democratic govern- 
ment have brought big gains.

Making

By David Young 
Energy Correspondent 

Shell and Esso have award- , 
ed a contract to the National 
Engineering Laboratory to de- ! 
velop a hydraulic system 
which uses sea water instead 
of expensive hydraulic fluids, 
and which will allow British 
companies to mount an export 
offensive. 

The NEL. based in East 
Kilbride, Strathclyde, will de- 
velop tools and power packs 
capable of being used by 
divers more than 1.300 feet 
underwater. It will also devel- 
op the potential of water as a 
hydraulic medium for use 
both on and offshore. 

The contract is in two 
stages. The first, worth 
£285,000, is for development 
of a tested prototype tool and 
subsea power pack. The sec-

Law Report April 11 1986 

Talaq in UK not 
a valid divorce 


Regina v Secretary of State for 
the Home Department, Ex 
parte Ghnlam Fatima 
Before Lord Keith of Kinkel, 
Lord Brandon of Oakbrook, 
Lord Templeman. Lord Mackay 
of Oashfern and Lord Ackner 
[Speeches sold April 10] 

The pronouncement of the 
taiaq formed part of a talaq 
divorce under Pakistani law; 
accordingly, where a lalaq was 
pronounced in England and the 
remainder of the proceedings 
took place in Pakistan the 
validity of the divorce was not 
recognized under the provisions 
or the Divorces and Legal 
Separations Act 1971. 

The House of Lords dis- 
missed an appeal by Ghulam 
Fatima from the Court of 
Appeal (Sir John Donaldson. 
Master of the Rolls. Lord J usucc 
Slade and Lord Justice Parker) 
(The Times. June 7. 1984: 
11985} QB 190). The Court of 
Appeal had affirmed a decision 
of Mr Justice Taylor who had 
refused Ghulam Fatima s 
application for judicial review 
of a decision of an immigration 
officer. 

Section 2 of the 1971 Act 
provides: “Sections 3 to 5 of this 
Act shall have effect ... as 
respects the recognition in Great 
Britain of the validity of over- 
seas divorces . . . . that is to suy- 
divorces . . - which — (a) have 
been obtained by means or 
judicial or other proceedings in 
any country outside the British 
Isles; and (b) are effective under 
the law of that country." 

Section 3(1) provides: “The 
validity of an overseas divorce 
or legal separation shall be 
recognized if, at the date of Lhc 
institution of the proceed ings in 
the country in which it was 
obtained - (a) either spouse was 
habitually resident in that coun- 
try. or Cb) either spouse^ was a 
national of that country." 

Mr Sib&hatullah Kadri and 
Miss Harjit Grewal for Ghulam 
Fatima; Mr John Laws and Mr 
Robert Jay for the secretary of 
state. 


Rescue plait 
for Ekofisk 
oilfield 

Oslo (Reuter) - A rescue 
plan has been proposed to 
save Norway's slowly sinking 
Ekofisk oilfield operations 
from North Sea storm waves 
by raising six steel oil plat- 
forms. the field's operator, 
Phillips Petroleum, said yes- 
terday. , , 

It is proposed to cut the legs 
on the platforms, piled into 
tile seabed in 237 feet of water 
on Norway’s southern conti- 
nental shelf, and weld in 20- 
foot steel lengths to regain 
clearance. . 

The operation, to be earned 
out this summer pending ap- 
proval by the Norwegian au- 
thorities, is expected to cost 
$205 million (£140 million). 

Ekofisk produces about 
225,000 barrels of oil a day

H A N S O N T R u 


LORD ACKNER said that 
Ghulam Fatima was a Pakistani 
nationaL Her parents had ar- 
ranged for her to marry Moham- 
med Afeal who had lived in the 
United Kingdom since 1968. He 
was also a Pakistani national 
and had been married in 1968 in 
Pakistan. 

In 1982. Ghulam Fatima had 
arrived at Heathrow Airport as 
his fiancee. He claimed that his 
previous marriage had been 
effectively dissolved, but the 
immigration officer had not 
been persuaded that the divorce 
would be recognized in the 
United Kingdom. 

Ghulam Fatima had accord- 
ingly been refused leave to enter 
the United Kingdom on the 
ground that the immigration 
officer was not satisfied that her 
intended marriage to Moham- 
med Afeal could take place 
within a reasonable time. _ 

In Pakistan the law relating to 
divorce was the Islamic law as 
modified by the Muslim Family 
Laws Ordinance 1961. In tra- 
ditional Islamic law the hus- 
band had the right unilaterally 
to repudiate his wife, without 
showing cause and without re- 
course to a court of law. 

Such divorce was effected by 
the announcement of the for- 
mula of repudiation, a talaq, 
and in traditional law a divorce 
by talaq would lake the simple 
form of the husband announc- 
ing taiaq three times. The 
divorce then became immedi- 
atelv effective and irrevocable. 

Section 7 of the Ordinance 
provided that a man wishing to 
divorce his wife should, as soon 
as might be after the pronounce- 
ment of talaq, give lhc chairman 
of lhc local union council notice 
in writing of his having done so. 

The chairman was required to 
convene an arbitration council 
to attempt the reconciliation or 
the parties, but their attendance 
was not obligatory and the 
divorce would become effective. 


unless the wife was pregnant* 
once 90 davs had elapsed frorr, 
the receipt by the chairman o 
the notice of the talaq. i 

In 1978 Mohammed Area 
had pronounced talaq agains. 
his wire and made a statutory 
declaration that he had done sc- 
before a solicitor in Bolton. 

Copies of that document hac 
been sent to the wife and to tnr 
chairman of the relevant unior 
council. No reconciliation hac; 
been effected and the marriage 
had been dissolved 90 days arte> 
the receipt by the chairman o 

the notice of the talaq. 

The essential questions were: 

1 Whether the talaq divorce hac 
been obtained by Mohammec 
Afeal bv proceedings wholly it 
Pakistan (in which case the 
applicant would succeed: sec 
Quazi v Quazi ([1980] AC 7441 # 
or by proceedings partly irj 
England and partly in Pakistan, 
in which case the second quesf 
lion arose: .j 

2 Did proceedings partly irS 
the British Isles and partly iri 
Pakistan qualify- for recognition, 
under sections 2 and 3 of the 
1971 Act or must the proceed-; 
ings be wholly outside the* 
British Isles? . *, 

Mr Kadri had submitted thaf 
the pronouncement of a taJaq,- 
could not be said to be the 
institution of the proceeding; 
The initiation of the proceed- 
ings had been the service on the- 
chairman of the notice. Accord- 
ingly, the entire proceedings had, 
taken place in Pakistan. . 

His Lordship shared the diffi- 
culty of the Court of Appealin 
seeing how one could property 
isolate the first essential step in 
the chain of events that had to 
lake place before a lalaq divorce 
was effective in Pakistani law. 
nameiv the pronouncement of 
the talaq. and the other essential 
steps. , . 

The notice served on the 
chairman was a notice of an 
event that had happened, and 
without which the notice would 
have no substance, namely the 
pronouncement of talaq. 

Dicta of Lord Fraser of 
Tullybelton and Lord Scarman 
in Quasi v Quazi. at pp 81 7 and 
826. supported his Lordship's 
conclusion that ihc pronounce^ 
ment of the talaq was the: 
initiation and therefore part ot; 
the divorce proceedings. f 

Given that the pronounce- 
ment of the lalaq was the ( 
institution of the proceedings,! 
then such institution had taken! 
place in the United Kingdom 
and not in Pakistan where the 
divorce had been obtained. 

Accordingly, its validity could 
not be recognized, since the 
requirements of section 3( I ) 
could not be satisfied. , 

That demonstrated that thei 
wording or sections 2 and 3UM 
when read together made it clear , 
that the "proceedings" m sec-* 
lion 2(a) had to be a single set ofi 
proceedings that had to be 
instituted in ihe same country as 
that in which the relevant 
drvorce was ultimately 
obtained. . w _ ... 

Section 16(1) of the Domicile 
and Matrimonial Proceedings 
Act 1973 showed that it was 
clearly the policy of the legisla- 
ture to denv recognition to 
divorces obtained by persons 
within the jurisdiction, and 
therefore subject to the laws of 
the United Kingdom, by. any 
proceedings other than to a 
'United Kingdom court. 

It would seem contrary to that 
policy to encourage the obtain- 
ing of divorces essentially by 
post by Pakistani nationals res- 
ident fn this country by means 
of the talaq procedure. 

Accordinglv, the immigration 
officer had been entitled to take 
the view that he could not be 
satisfied that the proposed mar- 
riage could not take place within 
a reasonable time, and the 
appeal should be dismissed- 
Lord Keith. Lord Brandon.' 
Lord Templeman and Lord 
Mackay agreed.

Council can establish 
committee criteria 


Regina v Newham London 
Borough CoondLEx P arle 
Haggerty 

Before Mr Justice Mann 
[Judgment given April 9] 

A local authority had the right 
to establish its own criteria Tor 
appointing members to ns 
committee in their standing 
orders, and by parity of reason- 
ing. it had the power to remove 
those persons failing to satisfy 
those criteria. 

Mr Justice Mann so held in 
the Queen’s Bench Division, 
refusing an application for ju- 
dicial review by way of declara- 
tion and injunction. 

The applicanL John James 
Haggerty, a member of the 
council, its education commit- 
tee and its leisure services 
committee, declined to provide 
the range of personal details 
which the council required to be 
disclosed in a declaration, a 
procedure which had been in- 
troduced by a standing order. 

The applicant claimed that 
the declaration was a gross 
invasion of privacy because it 
covered maners which went far 
beyond the statutory require- 
ments regarding the disclosure 
of pecuniary interests as laid 
down in section 94 of the Local 
Government Act 1972. 

He thus sought a declaration 
that the resolution adopting the 
standing ordere was null and 
void, and an injunction restrain- 
ing the defendants from taking 


steps to implement the said 
resolution and from removing 
him from the committee. 

Mr David Pannick for the 
applicant: Mr Eldred 

Tabachnik. QC and Mr Adrian 
Lynch for the council. 

MR JUSTICE MANN said 
that looking at the sections of 
the Act dealing with the 
appointment to committees, it 
was properly said that the lootl 
authority was entitled to for- 
mulaic criteria subject to 
rationality. 

That embraced the question 
as to Lhe significance of section 
94 and its companions and 
whether they had the effect of 
limiting the criteria which the 
authority could formulate. 

There appeared to be two 
quite distinct questions: the 
question of criteria and the 
question of criminal sanctions. 

It did not appear to his 
Lordship that section 94 dealt in 
any way with criteria. It dealt 
with members of a council or as 
in section 105. members of a 
committee. 

The question of membership 
was anterior to that arising 
under section 94 and his Lora- 
ship could not denye any assis- 
tance from that section as to the 
type of criteria which the 
authority was entitled to impose 
on members elected to a 
committee.

A turn-up for the books 


By lan A. Jack 

An experiment will give two businesses 
trading at the Newcastle Youth Enter- 
prise Centre. Newcastle upon Tyne. 1 8 
months free services from Grant Thorn- 
ton. accountants with an international 
practice. 

Two chartered accountants. Charles

“sponsor” a business within the centre 
by providing a complete accounting 
service. 

Andrew Wilson will be working with 
David Airey and Alan Brown who run 


BRIEFING 


Stiyl Art. a graphic design business. 
Charles Mason will immerse himself in 
the financial affairs of Richard Smith, a 
contemporary jewellery manufacturer. 

Mr Wilson says it is not just a case of 
preparing accounts or dealing with tax 
matters. He said: “We hope to develop a 
close relationsbip and oiler advice to 
help make them more commercially 
aware. We hope we will be able to 
recognize financial symptoms of a 
problem and deal with matters at an 
early stage as we identify trigger points." 

Mr Mason says that though the 
involvement has only just begun, he 
hopes be will be able to foresee 
problems and be able to update infor- 
mation along the way. He said:“Tlie 


companies concerned are very lucky not 
because of the relationship we hope to 
build but because we have access 
through our partnership to all sorts of 
advice". 

Chris Smith, general manager of the 
enterprise centre, calls it “one of the 
most comprehensive offers of help in 
kind" which the centre has received. He 
is hoping that other accounting and 
professional firms wBl follow the Grant 
Thornton lead and come forward with 
offers of similar assistance.

The Copperth waites: A flourishing woodworking business 

Tale of two options 


By Sally Watts 

Not doing things by halves, Tony 
Copperthwaite, with no business experi- 
ence, set up two separate enterprises, in 
food and woodwork, within a few 
months of each other. One took off at 
once, the other is becoming viable. He 
has created work for himself, his wife, 
[wo sons, daughter, daughter-in-law and 
a family friend, as well as some part- 
timers. 

Mr Copperthwaite gave up his job as 
inventory manager at Rank Xerox in 
1982, after 19 years with the company, 
and took voluntary redundancy. He had 
always liked the idea of running his own 
business, so the question was not 
whether to take the plunge, but what 
form it should lake. 

He said: “Food and leisure were the 
things that made money, so my wife and 
1 decided that if we were going to get on 
we should do both.” 

Today he owns a flourishing delicates- 
sen, Copperth waites, in a busy part of 
Maidenhead, Berkshire, and a wood- 
work business, Della Leisure Products, 
near Famham Comon. This business 
makes garden furniture and other out- 
door items.. 

Despite initial marketing problems, 
the goods are on sale in 70 garden 
centres, mainly in the South. This year 


Della is in profit for the first rime, with a 
turnover of between £16,000 and 
£19,000. 

Cash flow was the main problem, but 
Tony Copperthwaite has borrowed only 
from himself. When he left Rank Xerox, 
he deposited his pension fund money 
with Sun Life and has since drawn out 
several thousand pounds to bolster his 
leisure business. TTtis he repays at 13 ft 
per cent and because he is borrowing his 
own money, the interest accrues to his 
capital, with eventual benefit to himself 

The delicatessen opened six months 
before Della, has never looked back. 
Turnover is £40.000 and the shop, 
popular for take-away lunches.. 

Next year they hope to buy a computer 
to store ibeir records and other data. 

Mr Copperthwaite has been helped 
both by Rank Xerox and his member- 
ship of Zanadu (Xerox Association of 
Networkers and Distributed Utilities), 
which counsels, supports and trains 
former employees and others. 

“I use them for my accountancy, 
tationery and photographic work for the 
publicity brochures,” says Mr 
Copperthwaite “But it's also a useful 
idea because members who have a 
problem or feel depressed can ring each 
other and get-helpml advice.”

AUSTRIA/2 




for export to the East 


An Austrian-financed spa- 
town in Bulgaria; an hydro- 
electric power station on the 
Danube; an. hotel in Prague 
and ski complex in Soviet 
Georgia. The polyglot Austri- 
an empire may have vanished 
in >918 but Vienna’s commer- 
cial Drang noth Osten is 
gathering momentum. 

In Hungary. Poland, 
Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria- and 
even parts of Soviet Russia. 
Austrian capital and know- 
how are constructing hotels, 
refurbishing jaded tourist in- 
dustries and financing projects 
involving large-scale building. 

Nor is the Austrian advance 
confined to construction. Bul- 
garia seems set to sign later 
this year a contract to modern- 
ize its telephone system with 
Austrian technology and a 
score of other business agree- 
ments will emphasize further 
the country's special relation- 
ship with the East- 

Mirroring this success is the 
continued growth of Austria's 
broad range of expons to the 
EasL In 1985. 1 1 per cent of its 
overseas sales, worth 45.77 
billion schillings [£2.0S bil- 
lion i were to Eastern Europe, 
barely one per cent less than 
its exports to the EEC. 

Dr .Alfred Mayer of the 
Austrian Chamber of Com- 
merce is quick to deny that 
Austria has any special advan- 
tage when dealing with the 
East. “It is all a question of 
commercial conditions." he 
says. "We are on the edge of 
the Western world, and there- 
fore our relations are good and 
intense but we do not get any 
presents from the East." 

HerT Franz Nauschnigg, a 
senior official in the Austrian 
trade ministry, believes Aus-. 
trian trading links with the 
East have grown with the- 
increased competitiveness of 
Austrian firms. “We are com- 
pilin’ with the Germans. 



Forum Hotel Budapest: Internationally a e da im ed 


Swiss and now even the 
Japanese. We can only survive 
if we tighten up and keep a 
competitive edge.” 

However, most business- 
men who deal regularly with 
Eastern Europe insist that. 
Austria has in many ways a 
slight advantage over other 
countries, especially from the 
West or the OrienL“The men 
tality is the same in Vienna as 
it is in Budapest; the contacts 
are traditionally close and 

‘The advantage 
of geography’ 


they share the same history. 
Above all they have the great 
advantage of geography." ob- 
served one Western business- 
man with contacts in the East. 

Those Austrians who travel 
frequently to Eastern Europe 
would agree. Ironically, only 
one country. Romania, seems 
to present more than its fair 
share of problems to those in 
Vienna who are keen to sell or 
invest in the East. 


Frau Suzanne Muller, a self- 
employed financial adviser on 
Eastern business contacts who 
has worked with Eastern and 
Western trade experts for the 
past 15 years, said Bucharest 
was a "nightmare". On one 
occasion seven years ago, she 
was able to achieve results 
only by going to see the 
Romanian leader. Nicolae 
Ceausescu, himself. “Quite 
the most charming man Fve 
ever met in the Balkans,” she 
recalls wistfully. 

At the other end of the scale, 
in Hungary, business relations 
are much simpler. Politicians 
have for several years de- 
scribed the links between Aus- 
tria and Hungary to be free of 
any problems; indeed to be, in 
the words of one Hungarian 
mini5ter.“infiniiely better 
than they were during the days 
of the Habsburg Empire when 
both countries owed alle- 
giance to one emperor." ■ 

Predictably, it has been 
Hungary which has borne the 
brum of the Austrian com- 
mercial offensive East. There 
are more (ban 100 agreements 


between Austrian and Hun- 
garian firms, enshrining a 
mutual desire for regular con- 
sultation and co-operation. In 
addition to these there are 
eight joint .ventures covering 
construction, chemicals, elec- 
tricity and agriculture. 

However great the similar- 
ity in temperament between 
the businessman of Vienna 
and Budapest, Austria's trade 
links with the East have been 
immeasurably helped by 
Hungary's economic reforms 
and. of late, more relaxed 
political atmosphere. 
Budapest’s decision to devel- 
op a "Western-orientated" 
tourist industry made Vienna 
a natural city to cast around in 
for capital and advice. The 
Austrians, keen to cement 
links with their neighbour, 
were no less enthusiastic. 

Thus it was that on ’July 1 2, 
1978. both countries made a 
leap in the dark by sighing a 
five billion schilling credit 
agreement. This opened the 
way for Austria to become 
involved with projects be- 
tween 1979 and 1985. 

These included the estab- 
lishment of 14 hotels in 
Budapest. Sopron and other 
Hungarian resorts. It also 
helped the construction of the. 

Western visitors 
are impressed 

by Eastern European stan- 
dards, luxurious second air- 
port of the Hungarian capital, 
which was opened last au- 
tumn by the Austrian Foreign 
Minister. Dr Leopold Gratz. 

Both the airport and such 
modem hotels in Budapest as 
the internationally acclaimed 
Forum and Atriam Hyatt 
were prestige projects de- 
signed to convince the West 
that Hungary could be invest- 


ed in without the risfc associ- 
ated with Poland. 

Their success has impressed 
Western visitors to Budapest, 
while those many thousands 
of Austrians who go to the 
Hungarian capital for com- 
mercial reasons have been, 
overheard demanding why 
Austrian money cannot be 
used in Vienna to create a. 
first-class hotel: 

More controversial than 
these projects, however, is the 
plan to finance the Hungarian 
power station at Nagymaros 
near the Slovak- Hungarian 
frontier along a most pictur- 
esque part of the Danube. The 
station wouk] drastically alter 
the appearance of the river 
beneath the. famous rains of 
Visehrad, where the great 
Hungarian King Mathias Cor- 
vinus once held court 

The Nagymaros project, 
linking Austria with Czecho- 
slovakia and Hungary's hy- 
droelectric power, is a scheme 
worthy of the Habsburgs — 
Austrian capital building a 
Hungarian power station with 
links to Czechoslovakia; not 
since the Austrian empire has 
the Danube's traditional role 
as the link between East and . 
West been so carefully 
exploited 

However, the scheme seems 
set to run into environmental 
protests both in Hungary and 
Austria. The Austrian govern- 
ment. which will be paid back 
in power, rather than money, 
from the station, is in a 
sensitive position. The popu- 
lar Green movement has al- 
ready forced it to drop plans 
for its own power station 
along the Danube at 
Hamburg. The Greens are 
unlikely to remain silent 
about a scheme less than 50 
miles further downstream. 
However, trade officials in 
Budapest and Vienna are ada- 



Lnxqry in Hungary: A relaxing atmosphere hi the hotel built with Austrian moHCj

planned 

Other deals which are also 
hoped to be tied up this year 
are a 400-m illion-schil ling 
(£1.8 million) project for a 
health centre at the spa town 
of Sandanski in Bulgaria and 
an equally expensive scheme 
to restore one of Moscow's old 
luxury hotels. 

In addition to these, the 
contract for a Forum hotel in 
Prague was signed a few 
months ago. Poland, a tradi- 
tionally risky market of which 
the Austrians have fought shy. 
is discussing a number of 


wide-ranging projects, includ- 
ing hotels in Warsaw and 
Cracow. These are expected to 
be approved within the next 
few months. 

' What, one may ask, do the 
Austrians get out of aU this? 
"Tbe financial benefits are not 
so great but they are a suffi- 
cient incentive. More impor- 
tant is the reconstruction of 
confidence between our coun- 
tries and our eastern neigh- 
bours stemming from a belief 
that small countries -with a 
traditional link have much to 
gain from co-operating,' 1 a 
trade ministry official said 


At trade fairs throughout 
Eastern Europe, the remark- 
ably high profile of the Anstri- 
ans has amazed many 
Germans, traditionally- the 
strongest .Western, force at 
these events. The profile is 
reinforced by the holding of 
frequent symposiums in Vien- 
na on the problems of East- 
West trade. As one -slightly 
envious Swiss busntes&man 
remarked at the 'Bulgarian 
Trade Fair ai Pkmfiv, “the 
Austrian Sag may, still be 
rejected in eastern Europe but

never”. RJJ 


V VIENNA. THE HEART OF EUROPE. Fiaker. 



THERE'S such a thing as too much progress. Vienna is one of the few cities in 
which you can still turn back the clock and take a relaxed trip to the past in a traditional 
coach -and -pair, a ’Fiaker”. But it is also a city in which you can enjoy every modern 
comiorl. Vienna combines old with new-the beautiful and historical ’old town’, and the 
brand new Austria Center with all the technical facilities needed to hold anything from a 
meeting of 50 people to a convention of more than 4000 in pleasant and comfortable 
surroundings. A congress center with Vienna's very own charm and style.

The year 1985 was a good one 
for the Austrian economy, and 
lower oil prices should help 
1986 to be the same^ 

However, the economic pol- 
icies are likely to be very 
different Politicians in toe

ter, said baldly this yean “The 
time has gone when we could 
deride to spend a couple .of 
billion to create some jobs.” 

• Until now, jobs have had a 
higher priority than profitabil- 
ity. The government 
featherbedded the state sector 
as a means of soaking up 
excess labour. 

Bruno Kreiskv, Chancellor 
from 1970 to 1983, preferred 
higher government debts to 
higher unemployment, which 
touched a record of more than 
200,000 (7 per cent of the 
workforce) in January. Herr

warfare” - out some tinges of 
Thatcherism are recognizable. 
Although he himself has not 
said so, leading bankers have 
dropped hints that some de- 
gree of privatization may not 
be far down the road. 

Austria's gross domestic 
product, boosted by exports 
which were up by 12J per 
cent grew by 2.9 per cent last 
year .two per cent higher than 
in 1984 and die country’s best 
figure since the oil shock of 
1979. Dr Vranitzky made no 
bones about his satisfaction 
that Austria outstripped 
growth of 2.4 percent in West 
Germany, its most important 
trading partner. Tbe Vienna 
stock exchange also woke up 
with a boom. Share prices 
went up by 130 per 1 cent and 
share turnover in and outside 
the exchange rose about six- 
fold. 

Much of Austria's trading 
success was due to small 
private companies, and Herr 
Vranitzky and Ferdinand 
I- ac i na , the state industry 


minister, are determined to 
shake up the public sector. ■:

Under the consensus poli-

THE TIMES FRIDAY APRIL 1 1 1986 



AUSTRIA/3 


Why it is good taste t< 

drink the wine again 


The house that Friedensreich built 



Rust, a _Biiry n land village, in 
March: During a busy twcHday 
state visit to Austria, the West 
Gennan president, Richard 
von WeizsScker, squeezes in 
an opportunity to taste some 
Austrian wine. 

The villagers smile and the 
cameras of the Austrian press 
record what is widely seen as 
an historic occasion, for no 
other West Gennan caubetter 
reassure the .Austrians that 
their wine will still be drunk 
abroad after the catastrophe of 
last summer than Herr von 
Weizsacker. 

Such reassurance is still 
necessary less than a year after 
the anti-freeze agent' 
diethylene glycol was discov- 
ered by West German inspec- 
tors and Austrian bottles 
rapidly disappeared ftom the 
wine shops of Europe,* the 
United States and Japan. A 
small but prestigious export 
was dealt a devastating blow 
and more than 23 million 
bottles of Austrian wine had to 
be destroyed. 

As wine growers went bank- 
rupt — even the world-famous 
flagship of Austrian wine, the 
House of Lenz. Moser, virtual- 
ly collapsed — those who had . 
.doctored the wines disap- 
peared behind bars. The in- 
dustry, already reeling from 
these events, then faced the 
appalling discovery that a 
horde of other abuses had 
been unearthed in the 
country's wine trade; red 
wines made only of water and 
grape refuse or chemicals and 
grape juice; white wines which 
had been watered down by as 
much as a third or which 
contained TNT. Not surpris- 
ingly, beer consumption dou- 
bled last summer. 

The agriculture ministry, 
therefore, worked out details 
of a proposed new law which it 
insisted would be the strictest 
in Europe. This included a 25- 
point code considered un- 
workable by most vine 
growers but enshrining several 
basic safeguards. Since last 
autumn all additives to any 
bottle of wine must be public^ 
ly registered. A similar re- 
quirement covers wine sold in 
bottles or even stored in a 
tank. 

Stricter labels have also 
been introduced. They list any 
preservatives and reveal pre- 
cisely where the wine hails

Friedensreich Hundertwasser 
had berated reporters in a 
high-pitched whine about the 
shortcomings of Austrian ar- 
chitecture in the 1980s. 

-Heir Hundertwasser, a well- 
known and internationally 
celebrated Austrian painter,, 
was opening what has become 
the most remarkable block of 
flats to have been built -in 
Austria since tbe L930s: De- 
signed and supervised by him, 
it was his first essay in brick 
and mortar. ■ 

Sandwiched between tall 
grey classical buildings the 
Hundertwasser house strikes a 
note of irrepressible Mediter- 
ranean exuberance. There are 
no straight lines, and* more 
than 20 colours and 15 differ- 
ent materials adorn the fa- 
cade. Gold onion-shaped 
domes' echo the Baroque 
churches of southern Austria; 
trees lean out of windows in 
the facades' balconies; towers 
are set at rakish angles. Tbe 
serious art historian regarding 
the building with a profession- 
al eye would be forced to 
conclude that, in style, tbe 
building was somewhere be- 
tween Fischer von Erlach and 
Gaudi. 

The flats themselves are the 
culmination of a tradition of 
socialist housing which beam 
in the years immediately after 
tbe First World War. On July 
20, 1923, the town council of 
Vienna passed a law voting 
sums for the construction of 
some 23,000 flats. Between 
then and 1934, about 263,000 
flats were built, often by the 
most innovative architects of 
the period. They became the 
pride of socialist Vienna and 
were considered so luxurious 
by the Russian troops which 
invaded Austria at the end of 
the Second World War that 
they could not believe that 
they were simply “workers’ 
tenements". 

Earlier, during the 1930s, 
they had witnessed some of 
the most bloody fighting of the 
civil war. The strong walls of 
such buildings as the Karl 
Marx Hof had proved excel- 
lent arsenals, though the sav-

...and made the whole of Vienna look twice 


were employed by. the Austri- 
an army to demolish them; 
provoked universal condem- 
nation from liberal opinion 
abroad. 

Herr Hundertwasser's debt 
to these earlier buildings is 
acknowledged in his writings 
but, though his irregular pile 
might seem tailor-made for 
guerrilla warfare, tbe social 
stability of. present-day Aus- 
tria demands something alto- 
gether less monumentaL “I 
nave only one desire, ” be 


admits, "and that is to build, 
without resorting to cliche a 
truly unusual house." 

Born in Vienna in- -1926, 
Herr Hundertwasser was 
deeply Impressed by tbe 
grey ness of the. city recovering 
from one catastrophe and. 
about to enter a second. It left 
him with a passion for colour 
and an undying contempt" for 
architects. "Of 'course, they 
can build churches and' muse- 
ums but they cannot build 
houses because they _ have 


forgotten something, namely 
people," he says. 

For Herr ' Hundertwasser, 
architecture is still suffering, 
the baneful influence of the 
' Bauhaus — too many straight 
tines, when what humanity 
. craves is variety.* Quality of 
life- . can only come from 
beauty. 

These are remarks and ideas 
which will doubtless meet 
with approval when the Prince 
of Wales visits Vienna next 
week as patron of the “Britain

Hundertwasser and! the m- - 
■ omaveddonal creation (left)!., 
that caused the gasps 

in Vienna" festival; Both Hcnv 
Hundertwasser and Prince' 1 
Oiaries believe -passionately 
in improving the urban envi- 
ronment and it will be inter- : 
esting to see whether, like the 
last Prince of Wales to visit 
Vienna, the future Duke of 
Windsor, who insisted on 
seeing the Karl Marx; Hof, 
Prince Charles finds time to ! : 
experience what is a unique 
experiment in European 
bousing. 

Herr Hundertwasser’s re- 
marks, like those ofthe Prince 
of Wales, have angered many 
architects. Accusations 1 
abound in Vienna that Herr 
Hundertwasser was able ..to 
build his bouse and break so 
many of the usual .Vienna 
planning regulations only on 
account of his close relations 
with the government, They 
are also sceptical ofthe ability - 
of the trees in tbe facade. to 
grow without endangering tire 
structure. 

“U looks pretty now but in 
10 years it wfl] be a ruin," an 
archilecturaf student of the 
distinguished Austrian archi- 
tect, Hans HoUeio, predicted 
confidently. - • •; 

Herr Hundertwasser dis- . 
missed such criticism as “typi- 
cal • of the dictatorship of ' 
' architectural dogma". Tbe • -. 
value of a tree, be says, is : 11 
inestimable in a city such as : 
Vienna, the presence of colour ; - 
equally invaluable. As the • 

. Vienna council has agreed to : 
sanction a second project from : 
the ‘ artist, ' Herr ; 
Hundertwasser's view would ! 
seem set to become even more ■ 
widely appreciated.

1 1 leaves the 
door wide open 
for Esdale 


By Mandarin (Michael Pfafflqis) 

Much of the interest in Today's nap t 

todays Laburnum Stakes at Top Wing to wi 
Kempton Park evaporated Narie Giri Anm 


ivempion Park • evaporated 
yesterday when, after walking 
the course,- Guy Harwood 
decided not to run his much 
vaunted 2,000 Guineas hope 
Dancing Brave after alL - 

Nevertheless, the coil's 
owner, Khafed Abdulla, can 
still have his colours carried to 
victory by Esdale, who is 
trained by Jeremy Tree at 
Beck ham pton. 

A half-brother to the 1983 
French Oaks winner Escaline, 
Esdale finished second to 
Z a h da m in his only race as a 
two-year-old. So with Zahdam 
winning even that sub-stan- 
dard 2,000 Guineas trial at 
Salisbury on Wednesday the 


Today's nap though goes on 
Top Wing to win the Florence 
Nagle Girl Apprentices Maid- 
en Stakes. I find it significant 
that Jeremy Hindley left the 
colt in the Laburnam Stakes as 
well at the four-day forfeit 
stage before deciding to stick 
to his original, plan and give 
Alison Harper the chance to 
ride her first winner. 

In his ooiy race as a two- 
year-old, Top Wing was run- 
ner-up to Winds of Light, a 


Badarbak and Nisnas met 
once last season at Newmar- 
ket and finished third and 
fourth, respectively, behind 
Truely Nureyev and 
Huntingdale. They meet now 
on the same terms. 

At this meeting 12 months 
ago Eddery captured the Poly- 
anthus Maiden Stakes on 
Moorgate Man and the Syrin- 
ga Handicap on Alakh. Now I 
expect him to win the same 
two races on Enchanted Times 
(2.00) and Bridge Stmt Lady 
(4.30) and perhaps take the 
Magnolia Stakes as well on the 
recent course winner 
Loagghnrst, whose proven fit- 
ness will surely count for a lot 
on such testing ground. 

Bridge Street Lady, my 
selection for the Syringa 
Handicap, finished second 
first time out to Hilton Brown 
here on Easter Monday. In the 
meantime the third horse. 
Will George, has drawn atten- 
tion to the reliability of that 
form by winning twice,, ini- 
tially at Lin^eld and then at 
Salisbury.*

Henry CeciL Knowing that 
Gay Kelleway's mount. 
Beausa Ryder, who was second 
to Jazetasat Doncaster, is sore 
to help to make a market Top 
Wing should start at reason- 
able odds. 

Abu Kadra and Joli's Girl, 
second and third, respectively, 
in the Rosebery Stakes, clash 
■again in the Jonnie Mullings 
Memorial Handicap with the 
advantage still just lying with 
Abu. Kadra. 

Following an encouraging 
run in the race won by Will 
George at Doncaster on the 
second day of the season, 
Bindeaves is fancied to win 
the Withentsea Handicap at 
Beverley where John Matthias 
lodes poised to win a couple of 
races for Ian Balding on Make 
Peace (3.1S) and Wide Boy 
(3.45). 

Make Peace ran weO enough 
behind Picatrix as a two-year- 
old to suggest that a race like 
the Leconfield Maiden Stakes 
should be there for the taking 
while Wide Boy will be fit 
enough for the Bridlington 
Bay Maiden Stakes following 
a spell of hurdling. 

Further North it should pay 
to follow John O'Neill at 
Kelso on Philly Athletic 
(2.00); Arpal Conquest (2.30) 
and Aguada Beach (4.00). But 
even one so talented as 
O’NeiU may not be able to get 
Norton Cross home in front of 





Qua; Man in foe Oyde Bridge 
Challenge Cop. My selection 
is foe proverbial winner with- 
out a penalty, having won his 
last race at Wetherby and then 
been disqualified. 

Play The Knave, another to 
have featured recently in a 
controversial finish, is taken 
to win foe Bradden Handicap 
Chase at Towcester. 

It was he who was named

Eddery on 
top after 
Chepstow 
treble 

Pat Eddery, fancied by many 
pandits io displace Sieve 
Cauthen as champion jockey 
this season, swept to the top of 
the table with a 1 1 1 *6-1 treble oo 
Owl Castle. Corn Street and 
Single at Chepstow yesterday. 

Eddery’s three winners, all for 
different stables, put him on the 
11 mark but he was beaten on 
the two honest favourites of the 
day, the Jeremy Tree-trained 
pair, Tondeia and Donna's 
Dream. 

Coro Street, always travelling 
wetL took command entering 
the final furlong of the Mercury' 
Handicap to win cleverly. 
Eddery told Bosley dm the 
eight-year-okl was only canter- 

Wigbttnan, over the years 
one of the cleverest trainers of 
handicappere in the game, now 
only trams about a score of 
horses just for his friends. He 
showed that he has not lost his 
touch by saddling Single to boh 
five lengths dear of the 
favourite, Lemelasor, in the St 
Leonard Handicap. 

The Uph2m trainer, who 
volunteered that he has had his 
“maximum’' on Single, con- 
firmed that Derek Kent, cur- 
rently in Hong Kong, has been 
inquiring about buying his yard. 

Michael Jarvis, who saddled 
Gesedeh to win the last race at 
Salisbury very easily on 
Wednesday, produced another 
promising second-season filly at 
when Native Habitat cruised 
home by eight lengths from S S 
Santo in the first division of the 
St Arvans Maiden Stakes. 

Tondeia tried to make aD the 
running, but began to fade fully 
half a mile from home and 
trailed in Iasi- 

Native Habitat was a 1,000 
Guineas entry but Jarvis took 
her out at the last acceptance 
stage. He said: “I think she’s 
quite good, but not good enough 
for that She stays well, and 
doesn't mind the soft.” 

Jarvis will not have any 
Guineas runners as most of his 
three-year-olds want further. 
Picea will go fora maiden at the 
meeting instead of the 2,000 
Guineas. 

• Peaty Sandy, giving chunks of 
weight away to his seven oppo- 
nents, landed his ninth New- 
castle victory with an easy 
success in the Magpie Handicap 
Chase. He now makes his first 
appearance in the William Hill 
Scottish National at Ayr on 
Saturday week.

■ The Lam bourn trainer Oliver 
Sherwood was fined £250 by the 
Jockey Gub yesterday after 
•being reported to racing’s 
governing authority by a fellow 
trainer. 

The incidenl was sparked off 
when Give Cox. Sherwood’s 
young jockey . was booked to 
partner two horses in the same 
hurdle race at Lingfield in 
December following a mix-up. 
The horses were trained by 
Colin Williams and Gavin 
Prilchard-Gordon. As Cox is 
still a conditional jockey, Sher- 
wood is responsible for his 
riding arrangements. 

After a brief inquiry yes- 
terday, Sherwood said: “I was 
reported to lhe Disciplinary 
Comjxnfl&c by Colin Williams. I 
accept it is my responsibility to 
avoid misunderstandings like 
this, but you can understand Mr 
Williams is not exactly my best 
friend at the moment.’* 

The West Country amateur 
jockey Polly Curling was 
banned for 28 days.10 take effect 
from today, by the Jockey Gub 
for forging a signature. It is 
believed to be the stiffest 
punishment banded out to a 
woman jockey at Portman 
Square. Miss Curling, who has 
ndden with success under Rules 
and in pomt-io- points, admitted 
to the Disciplinary Committee 
chat she misled the Stewards by 
forging a trainer’s signature 
when submitting an application 
for an amateur rider’s permit for 
the 1985-86 season. .

TENNIS: WCT FINALS 


Wilander comes back 
from the brink 
to overcome Kriek 


Mats Wilander, the top 
seed, two sets down and 
trailing 5-3 in the third set. 
fought back to heal Johan 
Kriek in the quarter-finals of 
the $500,000 World Champi- 
onship of Tennis finals on 
Wednesday night in Dallas. In 
a match lasting three horns, 
Wilander, the world No. 3 
pulled through to win 3-6, 4-6, 
7-6. 6-3. 6-2. 

With defeat staring him in 
the face. Wilander refused to 
panic and stuck to his strategy. 
It worked. “I didn’t try to do 
anything different at the end 
of the third set." he said. “I felt 
I was out of it and had lost the 
match. I just kept on playing.” 

With that in mind Wilander 
felt that Kriek. who had not 
beaten him in five attempts, 
probably felt the pressure 
more. Leading 5-3 in the third 
set, the American at first 
showed no nerves as he wrig- 
gled free from a 13-40 deficit 
with an ace and a service 
winner. But two points away 
from winning the match, be 
netted a forehand and a 
relatively .easy, forehand 
volley. 

That was the let-off 
Wilander needed and he grad- 
ually took control, relying on 
strong serves and 
groundstrokes. Over the final 
two sets, the Swede never 
trailed. He took a 4-2 lead in 
the fourth set with a service 
break and broke Kriek's serve 
again in the first game of the 
final set. 

In his last nine service 


games. Wilander had to save 
just one break-poinL He had 
three love service games, and 
today faces the the winner of 
the match between his fellow 
countrymen. Anders Janyd 
and Joakim Nystrom, the 
fourth seed. 

In first-round matches, Paul 
Annacone, of the United 
States, won a four-set encoun- 
ter with Miloslav Mecir. of 
Czechoslovakia- Jarryd ad- 
vanced after Thierry Tulasne, 
of France, was forced to retire 
through injury. The French- 
man was trailing 6-3. 4-0 when 
an injury to his right shoulder 
put paid to his challenge. 

Annacone overcame a sore 
back to survive a 6-7, 6-2, 6-3, 
7-6 battle for his second career 
victory over Mecir. "I don’t 
know what happened, but in 
the middle of the fourth set I 
went to serve and felt some- 
thing in the left side of my 


Sapsford the survivor 


Danny Sapsford survived a 
scare before reaching the quar- 
ter-finals of the Prucfential Brit- 
ish junior hard court champ- 
ionships at- Wimbledon 
yesterday. Sapsford. aged 1 7, the 
top seed, from Weybndge, came 
through 6-0. 4-6, 6-4 against 
Daniet-AhL of Exeter, in a tough 
battle. 

Sapsford looked to have the 
match won when be raced to a 5- 
2 lead in the final set, but AM, 
aged 16. came back spiritedly 
and had a point to level at 5-5. 
only to see a running forehand 
pass go lanializingJy out of 
court. That was his last chance. 


and a relieved Sapsford served 
for the match. 

The third seed, Mark Petchey, 
of Essex, and the fourth seed, 
Colin Beecher, of Kent, both 
took their quarter-final places 
with ease.

RUGBY UNION: VALUE OF CHAMPIONSHIP IS STILL IMMENSE 

Changing role for counties

T wickenham tomorrow when anniversary seminar. Arthur diri

Administrators are constantly told the seminar “We must be the 1 


being told that their champion- 
ship is dead, in terms of the 
practical advancement of En- 
glish rugby: whereas, if the truth 
be known, its value continues to 
be immense, but at a different 
level 

The presidents of Berkshire. 
Buckinghamshire. Oxfordshire 
and Dorset and Wiltshire may 
have been pleased, after the 
qualifying rounds of ihis- 
season's championship had 
. been played, to receive a letter- 
from Chalky White, the Rugby 
Football Union's technical 
administrator for the South and 
South-West: “I am certain”, Mr 
White wrote, “that some un- 
qualified and unsubstantiated 
statements have been made, and 
some outright lies have been 
spread, about the present format 
of the county championship. 

T saw no shortage of 
endeavour, interest in and sup- 
port for the actual playing of 
county games by the players, 
coaches and committee men 
concerned. I visited three clubs 
where the county games were 
.played and saw that they had 
accepted the honour ami the 
responsibility of staging a 
county game in a way that 
brings them great credit 

“I also know that county 
bodies are deeply involved with 
the game as a whole and not 
solely with the county team.” 
White's view was confirmed by 
the ability displayed when a 
representative XV from 
Dorset/Wilts, Berkshire and 
Buckinghamshire lost 14-9 to 
Devon at Bournemouth 


The role of the constituent 
bodies came under scrutiny at 
the London division's 75th 
anniversary seminar. Arthur 
Street, vice-president of Surrey, 
told the seminar “We must be 
able to teach the skills to all boys 
who wish to play the game or 
face the fact that standards of 
play will continue to deteriorate. 

“Frankly the alternative to 
clubs undertaking the job of 
setting up teaching centres is. in 
many minds, the way to rugby 
becoming a dimunitive sport.” 

Further reinforcement, if any 
were necessary, came at ihat 
lime -from Dudley Wood. . 
Surrey's representative on the 
RFU committee but soon to 
become the union's new sec- 
retary. “I am a great believer in 
counlies in terms of the admin- 
istration of the game but we 
have to recognize that the role of 
the county body is changing”, he 
said. 

“We have become possessed 
by the possibility of winning a 
county championship to the 
exclusion of the true role, which

Wales lack experience overseas 

By Gerald Davies 


Ask any top player what is the 
greatest satisfaction he derives - 
from rugby, apart from actually 
playing, and he will say that it is 
the opportunity to travel. The 
player who has done his share of 
globe-trotting will add that it 
enhances his awareness of what 
is required during intense com- 
petition away from the almost 
incestuous cosy closeness of the 
five nations' championship. Da- 
vid Pickering and Jonathan 
Davies vouched as much when 
they returned recently after 
playing in the Sydney sevens 
competition. It was different 
and it is important to experience 
that difference. Neither had 
crossed the equator before to 
play rugby. They will do so 
again next month when Wales 
wifi visit the South Sea islands 
of Fiji. Tonga and Samoa. 

Although this may not appear 
to be as severe a test as that 
which France will experience 
when they visit Argentina. “New 
Zealand and Australia in -the . 



close season, the trip is essential 
The- game against Fiji on their 
own patch, it must be added, is 
not the foregone conclusion it 
might at first appear, as those 
who went there with the Web* 
team in 1969 win testify. For an 
hour or so that was a close-run 
thing. 

Last year's announcement of 
the World Cup in 1987 has 
caught Wales on the hop in that 
the tour has hurriedly been 
stitched together after the Lions’ 
tour to South Africa had col- 
lapsed. Without the trip most of 
the players would would not 
have knwon what it was like to 
play in the southern hemisphere 
and that would have been no 
preparation at all for next year's 
competition. Wales have sadly 
lacked overseas tours. 

The Wales B team have been 
to California and Spain in the 
last few years, but the last major 
tour was to Australia in 1978. 
Before that there were visits to 
Canada -and Japan in 1973 and 


FOR THE RECORD 


1975 respectively. In 1969, more 
testingly, they went to New 
Zealand, Australia and Fiji. For 
the present trip it is good that 
Glen Webbe, the highest try 
scorer in Welsh rugby with 30, 
and who has been consistently 
high in such ratings for the past 
few years, gets his due recog- 
nition on the wing. A little 
naive, or perhaps surprised even 
at the belated representative 
recognition, he seems to have 
turned down a Barbarian 
invitiation to play on their 
Easter tour. It is good, too. that 
Buchanan and Stuart Evans are 
included. These two props could 
strengthen their claims for 
inclusion. 

Both Norster and Richard 
Moriarty are included after 
missing the international season 
because of suspension. The 
latter after having had a suspen- 
sion imposed for each of the last 
two seasons must see this tour as 
a time when be can restore a 
better image.

lower back,” Annacone said. 

The nagging pains loosened 
his concentration, and a 5-2 
lead in the fourth set began to 
disappear. Mecir, trailing

Watson: back In contention for the trip to Mexico 

Watson moves to 
head of queue 


is the promotion and encourage- 
ment of rugby throughout the 
county. The introduction of the 
divisional championship ac- 
tually takes away from counties 
the burden of having to produce 
players for England. 

“We in the counties are now 
at a slightly lower level, trying to 
identify the people who have a 
prospect of playing at a higher 
level. Moreover schools are not 
going to teach the game for us 
any more, apart from in the 
private sector, so what are we 
doing about it? The counties 
have to pick this up.” 

Many counties now provide 
rugby, for cobs, under-21, under- 
23 and senior r epre se ntative 
sides and their schools' unions 
for a progression of age group 
teams. Bui the educational pro- 
cess begins much earlier than 
that, better organized clubs 
providing rugby not only for the 
nine-a-side game (mini rugby) 
but also the subsequent gap 
before colts rugby. 

It is not stretching a point too 
far to suggest that, for both club 
and county, the most important 
team after the first XV is the 
colts. That is the age when basic 
skills are finally confirmed and 
if bad habits have not been 
eradicated by then, the chances 
are they will be carried through

Three days, never mind a 
week, is a long time in football 
Last Saturday the international 
aspirations of Dave Watson, the 
Norwich City centre back, were 
as flat as the East Anglian 
landscape. Now they are as high 
as Mexico itself. Suddenly Wat- 
son has emerged as the most 
likely partner for Butcher in the 
England defence for the match 
against Scotland at Wembley on 
April 23 - their final rehearsal 
before the World Cup. 

Injury has accounted for the 
uafommaic Wright and now 
suspension and club duty look 
like ruling out Fenwick and 
Martin, respectively, all appar- 
ently ahead of Watson in the 
Mexico pecking order. It is a 
great opportunity for Watson to 
press his claim for a place not 
only on the plane to Mexico but 
in the first XI of Bobby Robson. 
The England manager’s visit to 
Norwicb on Wednesday was 
surely more than coincidental 

Fenwick's chance to play 
against Scotland probably dis- 
appeared when a booking in 
Tuesday's league game at 
Hillsborough took him past 41 
disciplinary points. He faces a 
two-match suspension which 
would also rule him out of a 
Milk Cup final replay. Since the 
suspension of Bryan Robson, 
the England captain, the FA 


By Clive White 


have decreed that players under 
league suspension should not be 
available for internationals. 

Bobby Robson, who was in 
London yesterday to promote a 
campaign aimed at improving 
England's image at home and 
abroad, said he had no sym- 
pathy for players who fall foul of 
the new edict. “Maybe it's the 
only way they're going to learn. 
There win be no messing around 
in Mexico. I want total 
discipline.” He added: “The 
game has taken several knocks 
and we're trying to set the right 
example.” Such thinking is in 
step with the campaign, entitled 
“Friends of Football”, which 
encourages people from aD 
walks oflife to do some good for 
the game. 

Robson must wish that the 
Football League could be more 
ofa friend to him. League games 
two days before the inter- 
national at Wembley will pre- 
vent him from fielding the side 
be wants - to start in Mexico. 
Martin, Beardsley and Barnes 
are affected and it is unlikely 
Robson win ask them to per- 
form again so soon after dub 
duty. “It is typical of our 
football that we ask a team to 
play 10 games in 30 days to win 
the league title,” Robson re- 
marked with reference to West 
Ham’s plight.

pyrah said afterwards that the 
course was probably the biggest

competition: “Two years ago 

when it was smaller I went at the

The only other dear round span

from ian Millar, of Canada, cm 

Big Ben, who is lying third, and 
lisa Taroopol from the United 
States, on Adam. 

With Nick Skelton cm Raffles 
St James lying fifth (they had the 
fifth fence down), and John

riders are well placed as the 
competition moves into today’s 
second leg. a one round com-

Yesterday's class was a speed

The twisting course was de- 
scribed by Miliar as confusing as 
it taxed the horses’ concentra-

native approaches to the fences, 

putting a premium on experi- 
ence. John Whitaker, co mpe tin g 
in his eighth final, made foil use 
of bis. Completely unruffled by 
having the first fence down, he 
and Next Hopscotch went on to 
negotiate the rest of the difficult 
course faultlessly. 

His younger brother, Michael

had the last two fences down

Runaway success 

Non-League football by Paul Newman 


LEGAL NOTICES 



Graham AKdot, the manager 
of Kidderminster Harriers, has 
one regret about his side's 
extraordinary ran of success this 
season. “If it had started a 
month earlier there's no know- 
ing what we coaid have 
achieved,” he said. 

In mid-December Kidder- 
minster, who are celebrating 
their centenary this year, were 
lying jest above the Gola League' 
relegation zone. Since then they 
have scored SO goals in winning 
14 and draw in g two of their 16 
league games and have climbed 
to second place in the table. 

Only the substantial lead that 
Enfield have established — they 
are six points dear with a game 
in hand — seems likely to de- 
prive Kidderminster of the 
championship. “In any other 
season we would surely have 
been top by now, bat Enfield's 
consistency has been terrific," 
A liner said. 

Kidderminster have also en- 
joyed great success in cap 
competitions. In the Welsh 
Cop — they are the only English 
non-Leagne dub playing in the 
competition — they have 
knocked out Shrewsbury Town, 
Newport County and Swansea 
Gty. In the first leg of their 
semi-final oa Monday, they woo 
4-1 at borne to Hereford United 
in front of a crowd of 2^48. 

They are through to the final 


of the Worcestershire Senior 
Cop and the qvarter-finals of the 
M & B Cup, a floodlit com- 
petition for leading non-League 
dubs in the Midlands- The only 
disappointment this year was 
defeat against Rncorn in the 
FA Trophy. 

The most remarkable feature 
of Kiddermaaster's ran has been 
their gonbooring. Since Decem- 
ber they have scored Gve goab 
or more on 10 occasions and in 
all competitions this season 
have hit 178 goab in 65 
matches. 

The two men primarily 
responsible are Kim Casey, with 
63 goals in 57 appearances, and 
Paul Davies, with 40 in 56. 

The form of the two men, who 
made their debuts together for 

the Fjghmd semi-professional 

team fast month, has been such 
that Kiddennznster were re- 
cently able to sell John Powell 
their leading scorer of the last 
two seasons, to Cheltenham 
Town. 

• Terry Morphy, the manager 
of Northwich Victoria, has re- 
signed. Mike Pejk, the assistant 
manager, and Bob Scott, a 
senior player, have taken tem- 
porary charge. 

• Peter O'Brien, the ma na g er of 
Staiybridge Celtic, has resigned 
in Older to succeed Peter Wragg 
as manager of Hyde United.

High winds 
take toll 

By Nicholas Keith 

High winds blew away the 
chances of Harrow, the holders, 
and Charterhouse, the fav- 
ourites, in the first round of the 
Halford Hewitt Cup at Deal 
yesterday. The appalling con- 
ditions made it -difficult for 
players even to address the ball 
properly. 

First to go were Charterhouse, 
who found themselves down to 
Shrewsbury in four out of the 
five matches at the turn. This 
was fitting revenge for 
Shrewsbury's defeat in the 1983 
final; and they can take comfort 
from the omen that in 1980, the 
last year-that Charterhouse lost 
in the first round (to ReptonX 
they themselves were 
triumphant. 

Harrow took the first two 
matches agains t Sherborne, with 
their top pair, Holland and 
TindalLoutinonly41 strokes to 
win on the 10th green. But 
Sherborne came bade in style to 
take the next three matches and 
cboch the match.

Between them Polonia, Speed-

H nminalpd Pngti dl Voftynll in 

recent years and again this 
season have the honours tied-up i 
between them. ■ 

Polonia have already won tbe 
league and Speedwell, the hold- 
ers. meet Capital City in the 
final of the Royal Bank Cup on 
May 1 1 at Crystal Palace. With 

prize-money on offer for the 

first time, aD three have a 
chance to considerably ease the 
firmnriai burden amateur spon 
imposes on Hs participants. 

Capital Gty. ixt particular, 
have the chance to salvage 
something from a difficult sea- 
son — their .first under Sava 
Medonos,- last year’s coacb-of- 
the-year . with the now-defunct 
Team Wiles. Medonos, a Czech 
international who coached the 
Norwegian national side before 
coming to Britain, tightened 
discipline at Capital City and 
increased training, demanding 
morethansomeoftheplayera.it 
seems, were prepared to give. 

By Christmas tbe dub was in 
crisis. “Some of the players did 
not seem to want to play,” Mike 
Warwick, the dub secretary 
said. “Peril aps it was inevitable 
with a strong character like 
Medonos and an extrovert team 
like ours. We have some lads 
with temperament ft’s not bees 
an easy job for M edon o s or an 
easy season.” 

Warwick is confident the 
problems have been aired and 
that the bad patch is behind the 
dubi “It takes a season for the 
coach to get to know the players, 
and a season fin- the players to 
get to know tbe coach. We still 
have a lot to play fin-, and we do 
usually manage to win some- 
thing in a season.”

Sir How Wheidon: a tribute on 
BBC 1, 1045pm 


•When I heard that Huw 
Whekton had died, the day 
suddenly turned grey tor 
me.lt was almost as If someone 
had switched off a light 
somewhere. And with that 
sensation, came the sombre 
thought that the world would now 
be a more eerily silent place, 
too. because that great laughing 
roar of his was gone. 

Wheidon was, to me. both on 
screen and off, one of the 
most elemental men of our 
time .and I am sorry to say 
that the humour and the gusto 
and the Northern Lights of his 
personality are only momentarily 
caught in tonight's Omnibus 
profile. (BBC 1. 10-25>.The focus 
of Alan Yentob's and Leslie 
Megahey's tribute is on art. not 
heart on Wheidon's 
pioneering years as editor and 
presenter of BBC 
Television 's never-bettered arts 


magazine Monitor. \ shall 

flunk of me Ominous him as rust 
an interim portrait Someone" 
must now get to work on a full- 
scale mural, befitting the 
range of his 

achievements. Meanwhile , 
there is much to praise in 
tonight's OmmOus film: the 
reminders of how brilliantly 
Wheidon used simple 
questions to unlock otherwise 
dosed doors (in his 
interview.for instance, with Henry 
Moore), and of how 
stimulatmgfy he would drag 
literary and visual talents out 
of his directors (there are 
gtowmg compliments to his 
mentor from Kan Russel IV 
And, from Melvyn Bragg.the 
closest anyone has got to 
shaping up as Wheidon's 


successor as a popular 
interpreter of the arts.comas 
the recognition of a truth that has 
put many a programme 
maker eternally in Wheidon's 
deoc it was Wheidon wno 
took the arts ngm to the 
aeciston-makmg centre of 
monolithic institutions such as 
tne BBC.

once in the last six years, but 
his ’lack of success did not 
hinder his progress in the’ 
fiftieth US Masters as be put 
together a four- under-par first 
round of 68 on the Augusta 
National course here yester- 
day. Kratzert, aged 33, from 
Fort Wayne, Indiana, estab- 
lished the early target with a 
round that included five bird- 
ies. He was later joined at the 
top of the leader board by his 
compatriot, Ken Green. 

The prominence of Kratzert 
and Green continued the re- 
cent success rate of the lesser 
known American golfers. 
Even so, there were several 
famili ar feces back in the 
reckoning for the first major 
championship of the 1986 
season. 

Tom Watson has not won

Norman, of Australia, also left 
behind his indifferent form of 
late with a 70 and then Ben 
Krenshaw, the 1984 Masters 
champion, completed a 71. 

Watson holed from 14ft for 
his first birdie at the short 
sixth and he turned in 35. He 
made more significant 
progress at the long thirteenth 
where he was on the green 
with a three-wood approach. 
Watson holed from 20ft for an 
eagle-three and although he 
dropped a shot at the six- 
teenth, where he took three 
putts, he was clearly happy to 
emerge with a good score. 

Meanwhile, Severiano 
Ballesteros, conspicuous by 
his absence from the fairways 
this season because of his ban 
from the (JS tour, laid the 
foundation to win a third 
Masters title with a 71. The 
Spaniard completed an out- 


ward half of 35 with a superb 
approach to one foot for a 
birdie at die ninth (435yd) but 
be followed another birdie at 
the long thirteenth by taking 
six at the fifteenth (500yd). 

Bernhard Langer, the de- 
fending champion, and Sandy 
Lyle had their troubles. Lang-

an adventurous start, took 76.

With the stint of die fifth

gland have a last chance of 
salvaging something, however 
small, from their ifi-fafedtour. 
There are few grounds lor

Immunity from defeat can 
be a dangerous anodyne. As 
yet, though, it shows no sign of 
affecting these present West 
Indians and there is nowhere 
that Richards would rather 
complete a second successive 
“blackwash" over England 
than within barely a mile of 
where he was born. 

As a result of five inches of

and as with all the others in 
this series the pitch will be 
grassier than of old if not as 
fast. When the prisoners from 
the jaO just across the road 
looked alter the ground, they 
kept it in better shape than it is 
now, and they loved doing it 
Twenty-five years ago it was 
one of the best and fastest 
pitches in the world. 

Yesterday, despite strenu- 
ous efforts by the England 
manager to arrange them, 
there were no facilities to be 
found anywhere on the island 
for England to have a worth- 
while practice. The nearest 
Gatting got to having an 
innings was when he put on a 
helmet and some batting 
gloves and asked Tony Brown 
to throw him some short balls 
on one of the hotel’s concrete 
paths. 

Things are not helped by 
there bring some doubt about 
Gower's fitness to play. He 
was hit a nasty Wow on the 
right wrist by Marshall in the 
first innings of the fourth Test 
and gives himself nothing 
better than a 50:50 chance o? 
taking the field today. Should 
he be unable to, Gatting will 
lead England for the first time, 
though probably not the last 
Slack is pre fe rred to Robinson 
as Gooch’s opening partner, 
which is a sad come-down for 
Robinson after his two splen- 
did series against India and 
Australia. 

He wifi be back, no doubt, 
though only to West Indies if 
in the meantime he has shown 
himself better able to cope 
with the shortest and fastest 
bowling. IfGower has to stand 
down today, Robinson will get 
another chance. As in the fast 
Test, the England side con- 
tains only four bowlers, with 
Ellison replacing Thomas, 
whose confidence took a ham- 
mering in Trinidad. 

If the figures from the last 
two series here this winter, 
and in England in 1984. are 
taken as a guide, England will 
score around 190 in their first 
inning and West Indies 
sf ttTM-Thfng of the ratter of 400 
in theirs. Should West Indies 
need to bat a second time, they 
are unlikely to have many to 
make to win. Which explains 
why another Antiguan, Andy 
Roberts, when asked whether 
he thought Botham would 
pick up the four more wickets 
he requires to pass Dennis 
Lillee's record total of 355, 
said that it would have to be in 
the first innings ifbe was going 
to do it Roberts even allowed 
himself a smite. 

like vultures, the newsmen 
have flown in from around the 
world to pick at England's 
remains, and not to praise 
what would be a great achieve- 


ment by Botham so much as 
to feed on his personal prob- 
lems. It was less than nine 
years ago that Botham played 
his first Test match, since 
when be has scaled many 
heights. On what seems sure 
to be his last appearance for 
England in the West IndieSj it 
would be good to see him 
finish on a worthy note. 

Gatling's return at the elev- 
enth hour also has a touch of 
pathos about it- Although it is 
over seven weeks since he 
batted against any genuinely 
fast boiriing, and his broken 
thumb is still not properly 
better, his presence coukl be a 
tonic. Smith showed in the 
fourth Test match how much* 
it helps not to have been too 
rioseJy caught up in the tour’s 
worst disaster. There are those 
who feel thatGatting has had 
too little cricket to have as 
good a chance of m airing runs 
as Slade or Robinson, but I 
doubt whether even Slack and 
Robinson would agree with 
that. In his only Test of the 
series Slack made two and 
nought; Robinson, in his three 
Tests, has averaged 9.5. 

The most we can hope for, 
perhaps, is that England 
should break the sequence of 
defeat, standing now at nine in 
a row. Ifi surrounded by so 
many distractions, subjected 
to such wholesale criticism, 
unnerved by so many col- 
lapses and opposed by a much 
stronger side, they can do 
themselves some sort of jus- 
tice, a draw should not be 
beyond them. This will be the 
fourth Test match played m 
Antigua and there have always 
been runs to be had here. 

In 1980-8] Willey and Boy- 
cott both made hundreds for 
England, while in 1982-83 
Amarnath and Shastri did so 
for India. The trouble has 
been, of course, that the West 
Indians have always scored 
more. Their lowest total has 
been 468 fin- nine declared, 
against England five years ago. 
In 1982-83^ they got 550 
against India ; against Austra- 
lia in 1983*84 they settled for 
498. 

By both past and present 
West Indian cricketers it is 
considered that except in the 
first Test match at Sabina 
Park die pitches have been 
nothing like as bad for batting 
as England have made them 
appear. The truth, I think, lies 
somewhere between the two 
views. What is less in dispute 
is that die same degree of 
courage and technique, the 
same high level of perfor- 
mance and determination, 
may not be required of En- 

e again until they return 
iext in four years* time.

The London Marathon 
faces a drastic reduction in its 
number of participants from 
next year. The problem has 
arisen because of the lack of 
assurances from the Prime 
Minister and from pick 
Tracey, the Minister for Sport, 
over the continuing use of 
County Hall and adjacent 
space near ihe race finish. 

The 1986 race, on Sunday 
week, will have around 22,000 
runners, but Chris Brasher, 
the race director, said yester- 
day: "In 1987 the biggest 
marathon field in the world 
coukl be cut by up to 10,000 
and entry fees nse by 50 to 100 
percent 

• Because of cuts in the- 
Metropolitan Police’s fund- 
ing, the marathon organizers 
have been asked to pay 
£63,000 fra the carection of 
barriers around the course. 
Last year’s race surplus was 
£65,000, winch went towards 
recreational facilities in the 
seven London boroughs 

« which the race is run. 
t could go to, " Brasher 

said. 

' Brasher maintains that the' 
use of County Hall and the 
adjacent Jubilee Gardens, car 
paiks and Royal Festival Hall 
is crucial to the continuation 


SPORT IN BRIEF 


of the marathon in its present 
form. 

■ Denis Cana van, the Labour 
MP for Falkirk West, and 
Gary Waller, Conservative 
MP for Keighley, both of 
whom are r unning the mara- 
thon, are unite? in their 
concern for the future of the 
race, and Cana van said yester- 
day that he intends to lay 
down a qnestion in parliament 
in the next few weeks, and to 
solicit an all-party group to 
push for action. 

It is tiie desire to maintain 
what Brasher calls "the best 
race finish in the world" — on 
Westminster Bridge with Big 
Ben in the background — that 
is behind tire reclamation of 
County HalL Brasher is hop- 
ing that after the Government 
sale. County Hail wifi be 
reopened as a hold, “in which 
case we would be prepared to 
pay the £25,000 that we 
already pay for accommoda- 
tion in order to use it". 

Tracey has rebuffed an at- 
tempt by Brasher to get the 
Government to put a Clause in 
the sate document ensuring 
that the new owner must make 
provision for the London 
Marathon on one weekend a 
year.
