Britons have become 
targets of terror 


Briions as well as Ameri- 
cans are now targets through 
the Middle East and Europe 
following the “Anglo-Ameri- 
can aggression" - as the 
Libyans dubbed it - in which 
US jets from the British bases 
killed an estimated 100 peo- 
ple. many of them civilians, in 
a series of devastating air 
strikes on Libya yesterday. 

The three most ruthless 
extremist factions in the Syri- 
an capitol of Damascus 

including Abu Nidal’s Pales- 
. linian group which probably 
bombed the TWA jet two 
weeks ago - said that as a 
% result of Mrs Thatcher’s in- 
volvement in the operation, 
Britons and British interests 
were now targets, just as much 
at risk as the Americans. 

Several members of Colonel 
Gadaftfs family, including his 
two sons, are reported to have 
been wounded when the 
Americans staged Lheir air 
raid on Tripoli and Benghazi 
attacking the Colonel's own 
barracks, the capital's military 
airport, the national naval 
academy, military installa- 
tions in Benghazi and — most

Diplomatic estimates of the

airforce personnel — he did 
not speficy whether they were 
Libyan or Soviet — had al-

away, adding that the crew 
had been killed.

America rallies to Reagan 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 


America rallied behind 
President Reagan yesterday 
for his attack on Libya ana 
was clearly ready to back him 
in any reprisals for the Libyan 
raid on the Italian island of 
Lampedusa. 

“Today we have done what 
we have to do." Mr Reagan 
told the nation on Monday 
nighL'Tf necessary we shall do 
it again." 

The White House said Mr 
Reagan bad decided to attack 
in principle in the middle of 
Iasi week, and had since 
conducted brief, secret meet- 
ings to finalise plans. It ex- 
pressed no surprise at the 
gloomy reaction of most Euro- 
pean allies, and acknowledged 
dial the attempt to get Europe- 
an co-operation against Libya 
would be a “long haul". 

American diplomatic and 
military posts around the 
world were on alert as the 
nation braced for attempted 
Libyan reprisals. The Penta- 
gon said two missiles were 
fired at a US coastguard 
facility on Lampedusa, south 
of Sicily, but fell into the .sea 
short of the mark. Thirty 


Americans are stationed there. 

A search was underway 
yesterday for a. missing F/i I 
bomber and its two-man crew, 
the only apparent American 
casualties of the raid, but 
without immediate success.' 

Three bows before the op* 
eration was launched, .key 
congressional leaders were 
consulted and indicated solid 
approval. The White House 
indicated that it would have 
backed off had k encountered 
strong objections. 

Asked if the US would have 
used FI 1 1 bombers from Brit- 
ish bases without the permis- 
sion of Mrs Thatcher, Mr 
Larry S peakes. the White 
House spokesman, said: "We 
would normally consult with 
her before we would do so." 

President Reagaa .speaking 
on television when the attack 
was over, told of “irrefutable” 
evidence that Colonel Gadaffi 
was responsible for the bomb-' 
ing of a West Berlin disco- 
theque II days ago. Mr 
George Shultz. Secretary of 
State, said the Adm mi station 
had information about 30 


planned attacks against US 
installations. 

The US bombers , used 
weapons guided by laser 
beams, heat seekers and tele- 


vision cameras. 

Mr Speakes said the targets 
were chosen because they 
struck at the heart of Libya s 
ability to conduct terrorism. 


9h ROME: The news of a 
Libyan attack on Lampedusa 
brought a dramatic suspen- 
sion of the Italian Senate's 
debate last night on the Liby- 
an crisis -while ministers left 
the hall to find out what was 
really happening on Italy's 
southernmost Mediterranean 
outpost (Peter Nichols writes). 

Signor Betuno Craxi, the 
Prime Minister, came back to 
tell the House that there had 
been two explosions. 

Paratroopers and Cabinieri 
went to the area while three 
interceptor aircraft took off 
from the Sicilian base- at

countered thick haze which 
made their task impossible.

both sides of Said bin Zaik 
Street had been tore apart,

steps of the tangaiovr opposite

had already dug two corpses 
oat of the wreckage of 
Mohamed Mastytrpr's home. 
Several limbs lay in an ambn- 
laare beside a 30ft wide water- 
logged bomb enter. From a 
shattered balcony, an old man 
looked down on as, bandages 
across his cheeks and fore- 
head, blood streaking his 
shirt. “Are we terrorists?" he 
shrieked. "The Americans are 
bastards." 

There was real scarcely- 
controlled fury in the streets of 
the Bin As hoar suburb of 
Tripoli yesterday morning, not 
the remote-controlled anger of 
Colonel Gadaffi's mifttfamen 
but shouted, cursed insults 
from ordinary civilians. They 
had already been told on the 
radio that Mrs Thatcher had 
allowed President Reagan to 
send some of his bombers from 
Britain. They knew that Mr 
Reagan was claiming to have 
hit only "terrorist targets" 
with pinpoint accuracy. They 
also realized, of course, that he 
was wrong. 

"The Americans should get 
this crazy man out of the 
White House," one young man 
screamed, his hair sticking to 
the sweat on his forehead. 
"The British should get rid of 
that crazy woman."

The Prime Minister lold the 
Commons yesterday that the 
.Americans had not only been 
right to bomb Libyan targets, 
but that they had a duty to do 
so. 

It would have been incon- 
ceivable. she said, for the 
Government to have refused 
permission for the United 
States to use its own British- 
based F 1 1 Is to strike in sdf- 
defence against the scourge of 
terrorism. 

But she warned the Com- 
mons that the public must be 
fully alert to the threat of 
indiscriminate terrorist 
reprisals. 

“Military establishments 
and government departments 
have been placed at a high 
level of alert." she said. 

"On the basis of past at- 
tacks, it is important for 
members of the public to be 
alert to the possibility of 
indiscriminate attacks and to 
report anything suspicious." 

Mrs Thatcher will open a 
special Commons debate on 
the American action this after- 
noon. when Mr Neil Kinnock 
will deliver an all-out on- 
slaught against the 


Government's practical sup- 
port for the American attack. 

The Labour leader said 
yesterday that even if there 
was evidence of Libyan com- 
plicity in terrorist attacks, the 
bombing could not be justified 
as an act of self-defence under 
international law. 

Mr David Steel the Liberal 
leader. . said that Mrs 
Thatcher's view that it would

have been inconceivable to 
refuse permission amounted 
to a blank cheque. 

There was also some minis- 
terial disquiet that the Cabinet 
had not been informed. 

A significant number of 
Tory MPs asked for evidence 
of the Libyan connections 
with terrorism. 

h is possible that outlines of 
the evidence, some of it 
provided from GCHQ listen- 
ing posts, may be published 
today. 

But the Prime Minisier 
yesterday deployed her case 
during Question Time and in 
a later statement, in which she 
said:'*The United States, after 
trying other means, has now 
sought by limited military 
action to induce the Libyan 
regime to desist from terror- 
ism. That is in the British 
interest." 

Although she had not spo- 
ken personally with President 
Reagan, he had been told that 
Britain would support action 
against specific Libyan targets 
"demonstrably involved in 


the conduct and support of 
terrorist activities." 

She added that the Ameri- 
cans had been lold that if the 
President had concluded that 
it was necessary, the Govern- 
ment would agree to the 
deployment of the Fills 
from British bases while re- 
serving its position on further 
action. 

The Prime Minister also 
reminded the House of the 
action that the Government 
bad taken to sever relations 
with Libya after the murder of 
WPC Yvonne Fletcher in 
1984. 

Downing Street sources said 
last night that in spite of the 
escalation of terrorism, the 
proof of the Libyan connec- 
tion. and backing for the IRA. 
the British Government had 
never contemplated direct 
military action. 

The same sources refused to 
say when permission for the 
use of Brilish-hased Fills 
had been given. 

But Mrs Thatcher told the 
House that Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, the Foreign Secretary, 
and Mr George Younger, the 
Secretary of State for Defence, 
had been at Number 10 when 
the initial message had been 
received from the President. 


Moscow (Reuter) - Mr 
Nikolai Ryzhkov, the Soviet 
Prime Minister, yesterday 
condemned the US air strikes 
as criminal acts of banditry, 
saying they should end 
immediately. 

In the highest -level detailed 
reaction from Moscow so far, 
Mr Ryzhkov said the raids 
were, completely unjustified 

As quoted by Tass, Mr 
Ryzhkov told a Kremlin ban- 
quet for Mr logvar Carlsson. 
the Swedish Prime Minister 
visiting Moscow, that the 
"criminal attack by American 
planes against Libya" was 
fraught with danger. 

“This act of aggression, 
which cannot have any justifi- 
cation, is a sign of disregard 
for the interests of small states 
and peoples and flouts the 
United Nations' charter that 
prohibits the use of force in 
international relations."

Tebbit warning to Sunday 
traders after Bill failure 


By Philip Webster, Political Reporter 


The Government warned 
yesterday ofa new crackdown 
against Sunday traders after 
the shock loss ofits Shops Bill 
Ministers conducted an in- 
quest into tbeir humiliating 
defeat on (he second reading 
ofa central piece of Govern- 
ment legislation, but were still 
reeling over the size of toe 
Conservative revolL 
Sixty-eight Tory MPs voted, 
against the Government a 
number fir higher than either 
the whips or the rebel leaders 
had anticipated.. The Govern- 
ment accepted, its defeat and 
admitted that reform of the 
confused Sunday trading laws 
was off the agenda for the 
foreseeable future. 

Casualties were kept to a 
minimum. One Parliamentary 
Private Secretary. Mr Andrew 
Hunter, the Conservative MP 
for Basingstoke, who voted 
against the Government was 
sacked. Mr Hunter worked for 
Lord Elton, Minister of Slate 
for the Environment 
But four other PPSs, who 
abstained had their offers to 


Robert Key. PPS to Mr Alick 
lan-Smit 


resign refused. They were Mr 
~ PPS to Mr 


Alistair * Burt • ~ 
Kenneth Bakers Secretary of 
Slate for foe Environment Mr 


Buchanan-Smith. Minister of 
State for Energy; Mr Tom 
Sackvflle. PPS to Mr Barney 
Hayhoe. the Minister for 
Health, and Mr Michael Lord. 
PPS lo Mr John Macgregor, 
Chief Secretary to the 
Treasury. 

Bui senior Cabinet minis- 
ters did not conceal their 
dismay over the demise of the 
Bill. Mr Norman Tebbit the 
Conservative Party chairman, 
warned of more prosecutions 
against people who trade on 
Sundays at present 

He told a Tory conference 
in London that things would 
not stay as they were. "1 fear it 
means that things will get 
rather less convenient for 
those of you who are working 
during toe week and who want 
to commit the heinous crime 
of buying a pot plant on 
Sunday." He feared there 
would be increasing pressure 
for the law 10 be implemented, 
meaning more prosecutions, 
against traders 

Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, who failed to 
win over the rebels with a final 
concession promising there 
would be no guillotine on the 


Bill, predicted yesterday that 
some existing traders might be 
driven out of business. 

He said: "I think what we 
will probably get now is that 
councils, who have the re- 
sponsibility to enforce the law. 
will find themselves pressed to 
do so in a fairly arbitrary way. 

“Some will take up prosecu- 
tions that have been lying 
pending and some very worth- 
while people may be driven 
out of business. 1 hope not." 

There was irritation over 
the role of the 14 Ulster 
Unionists who broke their 
Westminster boycott, and 
whose combined vote repre- 
sented the difference for the 
Government between winning 
and losing. 

The churches welcomed the 
Commons decision, rejecting 
the Bill by 296 votes to 282. In 
a joint statement the Arch- 
bishop of Canterbury, Dr 
Robert Runcie. ihe Archbish- 
op of Westminster, Cardinal 
Basil Hume and the Modera- 
tor of the Free Church Federal 
Council Dr Donald English 
said it had recognized the need 
to uphold the special character 
of Sunday.

Minister 


retreats 


on rates 


The Government yesterday 
backed down over its method 
of assessing local authority 
rate support grams. 

In a test case brought by 
Birmingham City Council. Mr 
Justice Mann, sitting in the 
High Court in London, grant- 
ed the council a declaration 
that Mr Kenneth Baker. Secre- 
tary of State for the Environ- 
ment.' had exceeded his 
powers in reducing the city's 
block gram by £43 million. 

The judge said it was admit- 
ted that the Minister's deter- 
mination was illegal and must 
fall. 

It was also agreed that each 
side, on giving 14 days notice, 
should have liberty to apply to 
the court for a full hearing of 
the case should it be consid- 
ered necessary. 

The Government agreed to 
pay the council's costs. 

The victory for local au- 
thorities could be shortlived. 
In the Commons last Thurs- 
day. Mr Baker said the Gov- 
ernment would be introducing 
retrospective legislation which 
would affect the block grant 
payable under the Local Gov- 
ernment Planning and Land 
Act. 1980.

COMMENTARY 



The Government has bad a 
fortunate defeat over the 
Shops Bill. Better an immedi- 
ate humiliation than a continu- 
ing haemorrhage. The Bill was 
a sensible attempt to sort out 
an area of the law where there 
is moch confusion. Bat it was 
never an essential part of the 
Government's programme, 
and it could have caused 
endless embarrassment. 

Had it scraped through on 
Monday night, it would have 
had an extremely tnrbulent 
passage through its remaining 
stages in the House of Com- 
mons. It would have been 
much amended and no doubt 
badly mutilated. As the critics 
were united only in their 
opposition to the legislation, 
the changes would probably 
have followed no coherent 
pattern. 

So the anomalies would 
have multiplied and ministers 
would have been forced to 
spend time, energy and politi- 
cal capital in trying to knock 
the Bill into some acceptable 
shape. It would, in other 
words, have been a running 
parliamentary sore. 


Ministers look 
very foolish 


Had the Bill survived these 
difficulties to reach the statute 
book, it would have affronted 
an important section of opin- 
ion outside Parliament. Many 
of those most concerned arc 
people who would normally 
be expected to vote Conserva- 
tive. unless they were driven 
by indignation io support the 
Alliance or abstain. 

Strong passions had already 
been aroused and they would 
not have had lime to subside 
before the general election, 
especially as the new laws 
would have been coming into 
effect just as the election 
campaign approached. 

This was therefore a classic 
example of precisely the kind 
of legislation that a politically 
sensitive government docs not 
allow to be in the forefront of 
public attention in what may 
well be the year before a 
general election. It would not. 
to my mind, have been social- 
ly damaging: but it was not 
really necessary and it certain- 
ly was politically hazardous. 

Had I been an MP I would 
have voted for the second 
reading. Had I been a Cabinet 
minister 1 would have voted 
against introducing the Bill so 
late in a Parliament 

As it is. ministers have been 
left looking extremely foolish. 
They miscalculated both pub- 
tic and parliamentary opinion. 
But it is the kind of political 
fiasco that will not lie too 
heavily on the electorate's 
mind unless it is added to a 
lengthening list of political 
blunders. 


Clumsiness is 
a weakness 


One of the principal weak- 
nesses of this Government has 
been its repeated clumsiness 
in political tactics. If this trend 
continues then Sunday trading 
will be added to the catalogue 
of disasters. But the episode is 
likely to linger for long in the 
public mind only if there are 
further errors to give freshness 
to the charge of political 
insensitivity. 

It may remain longer in the 
parliamentary memory. Mr 
Douglas Hurd's reputation 
has risen so sharply during the 
past six months that anything 
that tarnishes it is likely to be 
remembered in the House of 
Commons. 

How far he should be 
blamed for the outcome may 
be disputed. He inherited the 
Bill when he became Home 
Secretary. But the offers of free 
votes and no guillotine may 
have given the impression 
that ministers lacked the 
stomach for a real fight on 
behalf of their own legislation. 

Sunday trading is a question 
that has aroused the most 
intense public interest. In that 
sense, it is very much more 
than a politician's issue. But 
the loss of a piece of highly- 
coniroversial legislation will. I 
believe, prove to be largely a 
politician's issue. It embar- 
rasses ministers, it disconcerts 
Conservative backbenchers 
who wonder anxiously about 
ministerial judgement. But it 
will not switch many votes at 
the general election. 

Those whafavoured the Bill 
will hardly transfer their alle- 
giance because the Govern- 
ment failed to get it through. 
Those who were against it will 
not use their vote to express 
their disapproval of a Bill that 
was killed a year or so ago. 

This episode has illustrated 
two political truths: that the 
House of Commons can even 
throw out a Bill without 
bringing down a government: 
and that governments quite 
often have reason to be more 
grateful to their enemies than 
their friends. 


Lawyers create 
joint forum 
to discuss 
wide reforms 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


The Bar and the Law Soci- 
ety yesterday announced they 
have set up a joint committee 
to examine the future of the 
legal profession and report on 
changes needed to improve 
legal services for the consum- 
er. 

The unprecedented venture, 
which will involve laymen, is 
expected to signal the end of 
hostilities between tbe 
profession's two branches in' 
the debate on rights of audi- 
ence in the courts. 

In a joint statement, the 
chairman of the Bar and the 
president of the Law Society 
said there was a "strong public 
perception that the legal pro- 
fession needs to examine its 
practices and where necessary 
to adapt them, to ensure that 
the public need is efficiently 
met." 

The committee, which is 
expected to complete its work 
within two years, will consist 
of five hamsters, five solici- 
tors and five non-lawyers, 
under the chairmanship of 
Lady Marre. chairman of the 
BBC and IBA central appeals 
advisory committee. 

It wiii examine how services 
can be expanded, made more 
cost-effective, sympathetic 
and socially aware. 

“It is especially important 
that we should ensure that as a 
matter of reality, and not just 
as a matter of high-sounding 
theory, the law is available to 
all. So there is an especial 
concern for the socially and 
economically deprived sec- 
tions of the community." 

The initiative, which comes 
after a particularly acrimoni- 
ous few months between the 
profession's two branches, 
came from the Bar and was 
readily taken up by the Law 
Society. 

The society's president Mr 
Alan Leslie, said: “This is 


fulfilling a need for a joint 
planning secretariat. We must 
plan our future on the basis 
that it's a two-branch 
profession." 

Both he and Mr Robert 
Alexander, chairman of the 
Bar. emphasized that the com- 
mittee would not just be a 
“talking shop" which would 
effectively defuse current 
moves for change, particularly 
among the solicitors' branch. 

Mr Leslie said that govern- 
ment attempts at legal reform, 
including the Lord 
Chancellor's Civil Justice Re- 
view. had been piecemeal 
“twopenny ha’penny 
packages" and the committee 
would provide a chance for a 
cool look at the whole legal 
profession. 

Mr Alexander said there 
were still many areas of dis- 
agreement between the 
branches and the committee 
was not going to be a "cosy 
gelling together" on those 
areas. No topic, however diffi- 
cult. would be "off limits" for 
the committee, he said. 

Lady Marre, a member 
from 1975-80 of the Lord 
Chancellor's Advisor)’ Com- 
mittee on Legal Aid. said she 
aimed to "bring people togeth- 
er to reconcile views " so that 
they could come up with 
“something sensible". 

“It is not always possible to 
say what the public wants, 
because the public itself is not 
particularly well-informed. 
What we must do is work out 
how best to give public access 
to the right kind of legal 
services." 

The issue of granting solici- 
tors rights of audience in the 
higher courts, now the pre- 
serve or the Bar. has been 
referred to the High Court 
judges, who are expected to 
make their views known 
short Iv.

Separate taxation rejected 


Mr John Moore, Financial 
Secretary to the Treasury, has 
strongly rejected mandatory 
separate taxation for bus- 
bands and wives which, he 
said, would ignore marriage 
completely. 

He argued that a system of 
transferable tax allowances 
would be fair, flexible and 
efficient 

He was speaking to 250 
women, mostly Conservative 
and under 40. and all in 
positions of power, at the 
Highflyers* conference in Lon- 
don, which was organized by 
Miss Emma Nicholson, vice- 
chairman of the Conservative 
Party, to launch a survey to 


By Sheila Gann, Political Staff 

find out women's views on the 
Green Paper, The Reform of 
Personal Taxation. 

Mr Moore said the present 
system, of taxing a married 
woman's income as though it 
was her husband's, was an- 
tique and the time had come 
for radical change. 

“The Green Paper suggests 
a way forward through a 
system of independent tax- 
ation with transferable allow- 
ances. It is fain does not bear 
more harshly on the married 
than the unmarried: respects 
the rights of individuals; and it 
allows the burden of tax to be 
reduced in the most effective 
way," he said. 


Mr Moore said each partner 
would have a tax allowance in 
his or her own right to set 
against any form of income. A 
non-earning partner would be 
able to transfer his or her al- 
lowance to the partner's. 

But critics claimed this 
would discourage married wo- 
men from working and have 
called for a system of mandat- 
ory' separate taxation. 

Mr Moore argued: "Such a 
system would ignore marriage 
altogether. I disagree utterly 
with this as a matter of prin- 
ciple." 

Couples where only one 
partner was working would 
also face much higher tax 
bills, he added. 


Jail action 
gets 75% 
support 

By Peter Evans. 

The results of the national 
ballot of prison officers to be 
announced tomorrow are ex- 
pected to show that, in an 87 
per cent poll, there was a 75 
per cent vote in favour of 
industrial action. 

“This is a tremendous back- 
ing for our efforts and one that 
we hope the Home Secretary 
will take notice of" Mr Gra- 
ham Vaughan, a member of 
the national executive of the 
Prison Officers' Association 
and a member of the pay- 
negotiating team. said. 

Officials of the association 
were yesterday questioning 
the motives of Mr Chris 
Train, director general of the 
prison service, in making 
public a peace attempt before, 
he said, “industrial action 
overtakes us all". In a letter, to 
Mr Colin Steel, national chair- 
man. he had sought to renew 
an attempt to resolve issues by 
discussion, 

Mr Train suggested the 
issue at the centre of the 
dispute, manpower, should be 
put to one side while other 
matters of importance were 
discussed. 

But publication of the letter 
raised the question of its 
sincerity. Mr Phil Hornsby, 
the association's assistant sec- 
retary said. 

Meanwhile, the police are 
bracing themselves in case the 
prison officers take action and 
decide to cut numbers in jails 
to their official capacity, in 
which case prisoners would be 
placed in police cells. 

Mr Tony Judge, a spokes- 
man for the Police Federation, 
said yesterday that they would 
be able to cope, but sen- ices to 
the public were bound to 
suffer if extra officers had to 
be found. 


Sunday trading dispute 


Retailers are seeking a compromise 


By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 

Compromise plans to free 
Sunday shopping are being 
considered after the defeat of 
the Government's Sunday 
Trading Bill, and the Keep 
Sunday Special Campaign in- 
dicated yesterday that it would 
be prepared to discuss 
proposals. 

The moves came after fears 
that leaving the Shops Act 
1950 in place could lead to a 
wave of prosecutions. Accord- 
ing to one estimate, many 
small businesses and up to 


50.000 jobs could be at risk. 

The Government's unex- 
pected defeat and its decision- 
to drop any attempt to bring in 
Sunday shopping legislation 
has also brought into question 
the prospect of more flexible 
licensing laws in England and 
Wales later this year. 

Mr Tom McNally, director 
general of the Retail Consor- 
tium. said: “In the euphoria of 
victory, those who have de- 
feated this Bill should remem- 
ber that the retail industry is 
now left with Sunday trading 
laws which, by common con- 


sent. are judged to be unsatis- 
factory and increasingly 
un workable. 

"1 shall be holding early 
consultations to see if the 
retail trade can suggest com-

"If the law is now 
many busi-

hundreds of 
thousands of small shops will

He suggested that up to 
50.000 jobs could be at risk. 

Open Shop, which has cam- 
paigned for freer Sunday 
opening backed by six big 
store chains, said it would 
increase its efforts to find a 
“fair, sensible and workable 
solution in the public 
interest" 

Mr Nigel Whittaker, its 
director, said: “The current 
law is untenable. If complaints 
3 re lodged against those open- 
ing illegally on Sunday, local 
authorities can be obliged to 
enforce the Jaw. We are con- 
ceivably faced with the spectre 
of a wave of such complaints." 


Profit for 
S Wales 
pits after 
26 years 

The South Wales coalfield 
has shown a profit for the first 
time in 26 years. Last month, 
the area’s 17 pits made 
£850.000 profit compared 
with average monthly losses of 
more than £8.5 million in 
three years before the miners 

strike.' _ , 

productivity among South 
Wales miners, the most mili- 
tant during the year-long dis- 
pute. has also climbed by 45 
per cent , _ . „ . . 

The National Coal Board in 
South Wales yesterday 
claimed it was the biggest 
financial turnaround by any 
industrial enterprise in the 
United Kingdom in modem 
times. _ 

Mr Cliff Davies, the area 
director, said: "The entire 
industry is proud of this 
achievement. For decades, the 
coalfield has been the finan- 
cial millstone for the mining 
industry but those depressing 
days are past" 

Mr Davies hopes that the 
dramatic turnaround will en- 
able him to exert pressure on 
coal board directors and poli- 
ticians to approve the sinking 
of a new £85 million super-pit 
in Margam to serve the elec- 
tricity generating industry. 

Mr Davies maintains that 
miners in South Wales know 
that the fight for survival 
depends on their efforts. 

He explained that in 
1983/84 the area's 28 pits 
produced 141,000 saleable 
tonnes of coal per week at a 
productivity rate of 1.53 
tonnes per man-shift. 

Last month, the coalfield's 
17 collieries produced 145.000 
saleable tonnes per week at a 
productivity rate of 231 
tonnes. Mr Davies was confi- 
dent that the men would soon 
achieve an average output of 
4.5 tonnes. 


Farmers’ 
milk quota 
protest 

By John Yonng 
Agriculture Correspondent 

The National Farmers' 
Union is to stage a demonstra- 
tion in London today in protest 
at what it sees as the 
Government's unfair policy on 
milk quotas. 

The depute has caused 
another riff between the NFU 
and the Country Landowners' 
Association, representing ten- 
ants and landlords. 

Since quotas were intro- 
duced just over two years ago 
as a means of restraining 
production, they have come to 
be seen as a financial asset. 

This means that a farmer 
who has been allocated a quota 
of, say, 350,000 litres a year, 
can claim that it is worth in the 
region of £40,000 and that, if 
he agrees to surrender it, he is 
entitled to compensation. 

But the sticking point is over 
whether the landlord or the 
tenant has a better claim to 
"own" the quota. 

In an attempt to resolve the 
dispute, the Government has 
tabled an amendment to tbe 
Agriculture BilL due to be 
debated in the Commons to- 
day. But its stated aim of 
giving tenants a "fair share" of 
the value of the quota makes it 
likely that almost every daim 
would have to go to arbitra- 
tion. 


Unions back buy-out 
bid for Land Rover 

By Clifford Webb, Motoring Correspondent 


The three contenders for 
Land Rover submitted formal 
bids last night before the 
midnight deadline set by the 
BL board. 

The Land Rover manage- 
ment buy-out team won pow- 
erful support during the day 
when the three largest trade 
unions in Britain announced 
they' were seeking urgent 
meetings with the board and 
Mr Paul Channon, Secretary 
of State for Trade and Indus- 


try. to urge acceptance of the 
management bid. 

Unity Trust is prepared to 
purchase 10 per cent of the 
shares in a new Land Rover 
company to be held in trust for 
employees until they have the 
necessary funds. 

The other bidders are the 
Lonrho group and J C 
Bam ford, the North Stafford- 
shire construction machinery 
manufacturer. 


Local solution for inner city woes

Greatly increased resources government over local author- working party, the association 

ilies. and argues for devolu-

more local involvement, in- 
cluding expansion of the ur-

the Town and Country Plan- 
ning Association which are 
designed to help revitalize 
Britain's declining inner cities. 

In a report Whose Responsi- 
bility.’ Rebuilding the inner

association says a fundamen-

been the increasingly strong 
controls exercised bv central 


lion ol power to give local 
authorities, working with the 
communities they serve, over- 
all responsibility for the prep- 
aration and implementation 
of strategies for inner city 
regeneration. 

The association describes 
the Government's policies to- 
wards inner cities in recent 
years as “a dismal failure". 

Adding iu voice to other 
recent reports on the inner 
cities, including that by the 
Archbishop of Canterbury's 


says there is a fundamental 
need for more financial re- 
sources to be channelled to 
them, otherwise “within the 
very near future there will be 
further outbreaks of violence 
and the ultimate cost in real 
terms of renewing these areas 
will be much greater than it 
would have been".

Maths test*

Sale room 


Price for sculpture 
far exceeds estimate 

By Geraldine Norman, Sale Room Correspondent 


An Egyptian princess with- 
out a head and with only one 
arm, although accompanied by 
her father's Foot, sold for 
Fr2-3 million (£209.000) in 
Paris at the weekend, multi- 
plying presale estimates three 
times over. 

The fine stone sculpture, 
standing 48.5 eras high, de- 
picts Princess Isis, the daugh- 
ter of Amenophis HI (M05- 
1370 BC) and dates from this 
period. 

It was bough! in Cairo by a 
French collector before 1914 
and therefore does not fall 
under suspicion of being a 
recent grave robbery like so 

many of the antiquities now on 
tbe market. 

It is the season for big sales 
in the French-speaking world. 
In Paris on Monday the 
collection of Jean Davray was 
dispersed and recorded some 
top prices for Italian 
raajolicha. A yellow and blue 


lustre plate from Derate deco- 
rated with a warrior in a 
landscape and dating from 
about 1520 sold for Fr420,000 
(estimate Fr300, 000-350, 000) 
or £38.200. 

Tbe Louvre pre-empted the 
purchase of a historic little 
watercolour of the Calas fam- 
ily by Carmontelle at

buried within local finanriat 
institutions. They are also 
talking to a financier living in 
the islands. 

The islands are partly self-

about S 14 million. In the past 
worries about illegal funds 
have concentrated on other 
islands such as the Bahamas. 
Police have been given access 
to at least six suspect accounts.

all central C1D operations, has 
been briefed on American 
organized crime problems by 
the FBr and is in overall

investigation has been gener-

Scotland. Yard has mar- 
shalled forces from Cl I. the 
flying squad, the fraud squad 
and the new specialist squad 
set up to deal with organized 
crime and specifically the 
current investigation. The 
squad, called Clf7) Task 
Force, is headed by Det Chief 
Supet Brian Boyce. 

Police believe they have 
found a network of companies 
and accounts which allow the 
movement of money from the 
United States to the Isle of 
Man and London and then 
out to the British Virgin 
Islands before its return to the 
United States. It is possible 
some money has been directly 
invested in Britain.

New lung cancer treatment 


By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


*>■ 


A new form of treatment for 
lung cancer patients using the 
natural compound, interferon, 
shows promise of extending 
survival and may eventually 
lead to a cure, scientists said 
yesterday. 

Up to 100 patients are to 
receive the treatment in a 
clinical trial planned by Impe- 
rial Cancer Research Fund 
specialists. If successful, it will 
be extended to other victims 
of the disease, which causes 
36.000 deaths a year. 

The treatment has been 
developed after scientists' suc- 
cess in growing Human lung 
cancer in the laboratory and 
studying the impact of drugs 
on tumours.. '■* - - . 

rmerieron is *a substance 
produced by Gfefoody to 


combat infections. So far it 
has been a standard treatment 
for only one rare form of 
leukaemia. 

But it has now been found 
iii laboratory tests to mate 
drugs used in the- treatment of 
lung cancer up to six times as 
effective. 

“The effect of interferon 
when combined with anti- 
cancet drugs will be exploited 
to try for better results in 
patients.” Professor John 
Smyth, who will lead .the 
clinical trial, said yesterday. 
“The aim is much longer 
remissionor, hopefully, cure;" 

_ Professor Smyth, head of 
the 1CRF medical oncology * 
-unit in- Edinburgh, where the- ■ 
first patients' will soon be ‘ 

trpstoH. ad(int-' M nni!t.w:irv ' 


fjody-’ to treated; added: “Until we try. 


we can have no idea whether 
this treatment will work But 
the laboratory results are so 
promising that the therapy 
must certainly be tried in 
patients." 

Lung cancer was an “ex- 
tremely vicious malignancy" 
and without treatment was 
fatal within a few weeks or 
months. Existing drug treat- 
ments have succeeded in ex- 
tending survival only up to 
one or two years. Professor 
Smyth said. 

The treatment was being 
tried in Scotland, which had 
“the unenviable reputation of 
harbouring the highest rate of 
lung cancer among men 
throughout - the world," - Pro- 
fessor SnWth said at an ICRF 
news conference in London. 


Although a farmer loved his 
animals more than his wife h 
did not give her grounds to 
divorce him, the Court of 
Appeal ruled yesterday. 

Lack of affection did not 
entitle Mrs Margaret Beasley, 
a mother of two. to end her 25- 
year marriage to Mr Patrick 
Beasley, of Boswell Close. 
Bere Regis. Dorset. 

Although she no longer 
loved her husband, had set op 
home with another nun and 
changed her name, she must 
remain married, 

It was the second blow for 
the former's wife. In February 
Judge WiUcock. sitting in 
Exeter, refused her a decree 
Lord Justice May, sitting 
yesterday with Lord Justice 
Ralph Gibson and Sir David 
Calms, rejected her appeal. 
Mr Beasley denied being 
unreasonable. 

Lord Justice May said be 
agreed with the original judge 
that although Mr Beasley 
“was not a demonstrative 
husband" the crux of the 
wife's case was that she had 
grown away from a husband 
Although it was accepted 
that the marriage bad broken 
down irretrievably, the fort 
that Mr Beasley did not show 
his wife the affection was not 
behaviour which gave grounds 
for 'a divorce, the judges said. 


Stop ‘traffic’ of

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


The Government's policies 
towards care for people with 
menial handicap have result- 
ed in a “human traffic" be-

should be stopped, according 
lo a charily report. 


The planned scaling-down 
of such long-stay units, and 
transferring residents into lo- 
cal communities, has resulted

Almost 70 per cent of

only 5 per cent moved into

The Department of Health

By Bill Johnstone 

The Government has decid- 
ed to impose a 10 per cent 
levy on blank tapes. 

The tax. which will be 
levied on the retail price of 
audio cassettes with playing 
time greater than 35 minutes, 
is to raise up to £6 million a 
year, largely for the recording 
industry. 

The tape levy was outlined 
in a White Paper on copyright, 
published yesterday. Most 
current copyright law is 30 
years old and cannot cope 
with the problems generated 
by new technology. 

The levy allows the public 
legally to tape broadcasts from 
radio which theoretically has 
been an offence since tape 
recorders were invented. 

Tapes used by blind people 
will be exempt from the levy. 

Other measures include: 


• protection for the copyright 
holders of programmes shown 
on satellite or cable television 
channel; 

• protection to be given to 
computer programs; 

• patent holders will be able 
to protect their work through 
the Patent Office which will 
become a statutory body out- 
side the Civil Service: 

• a copyright tribunal will be 
set up to adjudicate over 
disputes on copyright

A tpp-level blunder allowed 
a computer journalist to pene-

was told yesterday.

SELF-EMPLOYED? NO PENSION WITH YOUR JOB? KEEP THIS PAGE 


WHATS THE BEST TIME 


TO START YOUR OWN 


PENSION PLAN? 


A RE you busy building up a business 
l-. . . or working in a job with no 
company pension? You’ll know ift tough 
finding time for other long term plans — 
let alone thinking about a pension. 

. But just a tew seconds of your time 
now could make all the difference when 
yon retire. As a business person you’ll 
know that time exxsts money— but have 
you ever thought just how much? 

The Illustrations show why it makes 
good sense to plan your pension NOW. 
At 36 years old, Mr S. could start to 
build up a hefty pension fund for his 
retirement, but it could still be £60,824 
less than if he’d started at 34— an 
astonishing difference! As you can see, 
the longer you delay, the smaller your 
rewards at retirement. 


NOW? 


IN TWO YEARS? 


THE TAX-MAN'S 
CONTRIBUTION 


Personal Pensions are outstanding 
investments because of the considerable 
tax concessions. You receive maximum 
relief on your contributions— at the 
highest rate yon pay on your earnings. 

In addition, your contributions go 
into a special Sun Alliance Fund which is free 
of most U.K. taxes, which means your invest- 
ment can grow much fasten

If, however, there comes a time 
when money is tight, the Personal 
Pension Plan allows you to reduce your 
contributions— and, if things are 
critical, stop them altogether. Provided 
you start paying again within two years 
the fund will accept your contributions 
as before. 

The younger you start contributing, 
the greater the reward. However, at any 
age younger than 65 (and still working) 
you can join the scheme. At the outset 
you select a retirement age between 60 
and 70, but even that is flexible when 
you come to retire.

Libyan crisis 


Thatcher statement 


Use of bases 


Why Britain backed US air attack on Libya 


COMMONS 

After trying other means, the 
United Stans hod now sought 
by limited military action to 
induce the Libyan regime to 
desist from terrorism — a 
scourge of the modem age — and 
that was ia the British interest. 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher, the 
Prime Minister, told the Com- 
mons in a statement. It was why 
the Government supported the 
US action. 

The Commons is to hare a full 
debate tomorrow (Wednesday) 
on the US attacks oa specific 
targets in Libya during the night 
of April 14-15. 

In her statement. Mrs 
Thatcher made clear that having 


to the deployment of US 
aircraft from bases in the UK, 
she had reserved the position of 
the UK oa any question of 
fmtbcr action which might be 
more general or less dearly 
directed against terrorism. 

Mrs Thatcher told MPs that 
the Government had evidence 
showing beyond dispute that the 
Libyan Government had been 
and was directly involved in 
promoting terrorist attacks 
against the United States and 
other western conn tries, and that 
it bad made plans for a wide 
range of further terrorist 
attacks. 

The United Kingdom had iself 
suffered from Libyan terrorism. 
The House would recall the 
murder of WPc Fletcher in St 
James's Square. There was no 


doubt, moreover, of the Libyan 
Government's direct and 
continuing support for the Pro- 
visional FRA in the form of 
money and weapons. 

Two years ago (she wait on) 
we took certain measures 
against Libya, including the 
closure of the Libyan People's 
Bureau in London, restrictions 
on the entry of Libyans Into the 
UK, and a ban on new contracts 
for the export to Libya of 
defence equipment. 

Yesterday (Monday) the for- 
eign ministers of the European 
Community reaffirmed their 
grave concern at Libyan-in- 
spired terrorism and agreed on 
new restrictions against Libya. 

Since we broke off diplomatic 
relations with Libya we have 
had no choke but consistently to 
advise British nationals firing 


and working there that they are 
doing so on their own 
responsibility. 

Onr interests there have been 
looked after by the Italian 
Government. Our representative 
in the Britsih Interests Section 
of the Italian Embassy will 
continue to advise the British 
commanity as best he ran. 

The US has tried by peaceful 
means to deter Colonel Gadaffi 
and bis regime from their 
promotion of terrorism but to no 
effect. 

President Reagan informed 
me last week that the US 
intended to take military action 
to deter further Libyan terror- 
ism. He sooght British support 
for this action. 

He sought also agreement, h 
accordance with our long-stand- 


ing arrangements, to the use in 
the operation of some US air- 
craft based in this country. This 
approach led to a series of 
exchanges tnefoding a visit by 
Ambassador Walters on 
Saturday. 

Article 51 of the UN Charter 
specifically recognises the right 
to self-defence. 

In view of Libya's promotion 
of terrorism, the failure of 
peaceful means to deter it. and 
the evidence that farther attacks 
were threatened, I replied to the 
President that we would support 
action directed against specific 
Libyan targets demonstrably in- 
volved in the conduct and sup- 
port of terrorist activities. 

Farther, that if the President 
concluded that it was necessary, 
we would agree to the deploy- 


be 


meat of US aircraft from bases 
in the UK for that purpose. 

I reserved the position of the 
UK on any question of further 
action which might be more 
general or less dearly directed 
against terrorism. 

The President assured me 
that the operation would 
limited to dearly defined tar u 
related to terrorism, and that the 
risk of collateral damage would 
be minimised. 

He made dear that the use of 
F-l 11 aircraft from bases in the 
UK was essential, because by 
virtue of their special 
characteristics they would pro- 
vide the safest means of achiev- 
ing particular objectives with the 
lowest possible risk both of 
civilian casualties in Libya aad 
of casualties among US service 
personnel. 


Bombing unjustified as act 
of self-defence: Kinnock 


No cringing before Gadaffi 
without taking action 


Far from bringing the curtain 
down on Gadam’s reign of 
terror, as President Reagan had 
put it. the US action had caused 
bloodshed and damage to inno- 
cents and would result in a 
lessening of British and Ameri- 
can influence over even mod- 
erate Arab states. Mr Neil 
Kinnock. Leader of the Oppo- 
sition. said when he questioned 
Mrs Thatcher on her statement . 
Mr Kinnock asked if Mrs 
Thatcher had spoken directly 
and personally to President 
Reagan at any time before she 
decided that the attack on Libya 
by F-Hls could be launched 
from bases in Britain. 

Is it true (he continued) that 
the decision not to veto the use 
of bases in Britain for action 
against Gadaffi was made by her 
alone? Is it true that the Foreign 
Secretary was not told of the 
American action until Monday 
morning? 

Is it true that the Cabinet 
overseas policy committee was 
not consulted at all until very- 
late last night? 

If it is true, the Prime Min- 
ister has treated her Cabinet and 
Government with the same 
contempt as shown to her by the 
President of the United Slates. 
Has she or her Foreign Secretary 
actually seen or heard the 
evidence of which President 
Reagan spoke in h is broadcast 
on television last night? 

Will she respond to the view 
held in all pans of the House 
that the maximum possible 
amount of the evidence on 
which her decision was made 
and that of the President was 
based should be made public? 

Even if there was such ev- 
idence against Gadaffi, last 
night's bombing could not be 
justified as an act of self-defence 
under international law. which 
required that armed response to 
aggression was immediate, 
protective and proportionate. to 
the scale of aggression. 

He asked Mrs Thatcher for an 
undertaking that she would 
refuse permission for the use of 
British bases for any further 
similar action by President 
Reagan. 

Mrs Thatcher said she disagreed 
totally with Mr Kinnock and 
reminded him that the United 


States was Britain's staunch ally 
and kept over 330.000 troops in 
Europe to defend the freedom of 
Europe. 

The Foreign Secretary (he 
said) and the Secretary of State 
for Defence were in No 10 when 
the initial message from the 
President was received and we 
have acted together in knowl- 
edge of one another's views 
throughout. The overseas 
committee of the Cabinet met 
on Monday morning. 

Of course I have seen and 
examined our own intelligence 
evidence. We are naturally care- 
ful about intelligence evidence 
because to publish it will com- 
promise sources and may there- 
fore undermine our security. 

A certain amount has been 
given and 1 will try to see wc 
give as much as we can without 
undermining that security. To 
undermine that security could 
be very damaging indeed to the 
United Kingdom and to our 
allies. 

I have indicated, and I know 
the United States lakes the same 
view, that the selection of targets 
demonstrably in connection 
with terrorist activity was 
within Article 51. That is my 
legal advice and I understand it 
is the legal advice of the United 
States. 

Mr Kinnock speaks about 
moderate Arab states. Many 
Arab states have also been the 
subject of terrorist attack and 
some understand very well what 
wc are doing. 

Mr Julian Amery (Brighton. 
Pavilion. C) congratulated her 
on the strong support she gave 
to their American allies in 
seeking to deter not just terror- 
ism but a terrorist stale which 
had been Britain’s enemy as 
much as the enemv of the US 
and of the moderate Arab 
countries. 

The drastic action by the 
Americans yesterday (he said) 
will find its justification only if 
the terrorist state is finally 
prevented from continuing ter- 
rorism. Those who support 
Colonel Gadaffi are accessories 
to the murder of our police 
constable in this country and 
many other people in other parts 
of the work!. 

Mrs Thatcher: I am very much 


aware that if there were to be 
any further action it would also 
have to be justified under article 
51. Precisely the same rules 
would apply to any further 
action as applied to this one. 

Yes. some risks have to be 
faced in order to try to turn the 
tide against terrorism. The US 
has come to Europe asking for 
fiinher action and we in Europe 
have been the country which has 
already taken most. The US did 
not gel much of a response from 
Europe. 

Mr Darid Steel. Leader of the 
Liberal Party: Whatever the 
evidence, no doubt substantial, 
of Libyan past terrorism, in 
what respect does she expect 
that terrorism will be halted by 
what happened last night? 

How was it that the Foreign 
Secretary agreed unanimously 
with (he European ministers 
that increased military tension 
in the area would be dangerous, 
yet 12 hours later we have a 
substantial increase in military 
tension in the area. 

Did she seek to limit per- 
mission on use of British bases 
to military targets? 

The most appalling thing she 
said this afternoon was the use 
of the word “inconceivable" 
that she would ever refuse any 
requcsL Is not that a blank 
cheque to President Reagan? 
Mrs Thatcher We had direct 
evidence of Libyan past terror- 
ism in St James Square. Since 
then there appears to have been 
an escalation of terrorism and if 
MPs thought we were not firm 
enough about that particular act 
they should welcome the action 
that has now been taken and 
support that has been given. 

Not only did we say confine it 
to militaiy targets directly asso- 
ciated with terrorism, indeed 
the wards we used were “de- 
monstrably associated with 
terrorism", because we believe 
that to be within article 51. 

The discussion in . Europe 
between the Foreign Ministers 
took place on the basis that 
action might well be imminent. 
The Foreign Secretary argued 
the case for action in self defence 
but also for a stronger Commu- 
nity response. There was some 
further new actions but they 
were not very much. 


Sir Ian Gil moor (Chesham 
and Amersham, C) continuing 
the questions, asked: Since the 
great evil of terrorism is killing 
and wounding of innocent 
people, when she made her 
difficult and to my mind 
mistaken decision, should she 
not have stipulated that bases 
should not be used in attacks 
on targets in civilian areas 
which were bound to. and 
apparently seem to have re- 
sulted in killing of innocent 
people. 

Mrs Thatcher The targets 
chosen must come within the 
right of self-defence and Arti- 
cle 51 and must be demonstra- 
bly connected with terrorism. 

There are always some risks 
but if one fails to take action in 
self-defence because there 
may be some risks incurred, 
what people are saying who 
take that view is that one can 
never take any action to make 
state-sponsored terrorism 
reduce. 

In fact, one would have to 
cringe before Colonel Gadaffi 
without taking any further 
action. 

Mr Michael Foot (Blaenau 
Gwent, Lab): If she is so 
confident the American action 
was justified and legitimate 
under article 51, why did not 
she urge the President to go to 
the Security Council? 

Mrs Thatcher Because the 
Security Council has con- 
demned terrorism before and 
state-sponsored terrorism and 
the Security Council could not 
have taken any effective ac- 
tion and has not been able to 
take effective action to deter 
state-sponsored terrorism. 

It will do excellent words. It 
is not able to cany out deeds. 
Sir Peter B taker (Blackpool 
South. O: In view of the 
failure of past attempts to deal 
with the problem of Libyan 
terrorism, is it not perfectly 
dear that new ways have had 
to be found to deal with that 
problem? 


In spite of problems related 
to the preservation of our 
inzeltigence. will the Prime 
Minister see whether more 
information can be published 
about the evidence we have?. 
Mrs Thatcher I agree that the 
actions we and other countries 
have taken so far have not had 
the effect of reducing Libyan 
state sponsored terrorism but 
it has escalated and we have 
solid evidence that more was 
planned. 

I will see how much of the 
evidence we can place before 
the House, but 1 am not 
willing to compromise intelli- 
gence sources. But we will do 
what we can. 

Mr Enoch Powell (South 
Down, OUP): Has it not 
become dear from these 
events to the people of this 
country how flimsy would be 
our protection against the use 
of bases on British soil for the 
launching of nuclear 
operations. 

Mis Thatcher No. I think he 
is asking about something 
totally different indeed. I be- 
lieve he knows it

Thatcher: Terrori sm a scourge 
of modern age 

Mr Cranky Onslow (Woking, 
O The world knows how 
Colonel Gadaffi has set himself 
up as the godfather of inter- 
national terrorism. Will she be 
careful when she considers the 
publication of evidence whether 
it has been obtained by the 
penetration of Libyan terrorist 
networks, the interception of 
their communications or 
however?. 

It is a matter of great im- 
portance to us and many others 
that those sources should con- 
tinue to give us warning of what 
this mad dog may do next. 

Mrs Thatcher ( heed his warn- 
ing. Some evidence has already 
been published in the United 
States. I will look to see if there 
is any more which can safely be 
published. 


Dr David Owen, Leader of the 
SDP. said that as the Prime 
Minister went to the Security 
Council at the time of the 
FalkJands her strictures on the 
council would have been equally 
applicable then. She was at great 
pains always to act within 
Article 51. 

President Kennedy's laying 
the satellite photographs of the 
missiles in Cuba in 1962 before 
the United Nations bad a dra- 
matic effect on world opinion. If 
it did not risk too much, would 
Mrs Thatcher publish as much 
as possible of the information 
and, if necessary, override to 
some extent the natural caution 
of intelligence? 

Mrs Thatcher: We went to the 
Security Council to report our 
action under Article 51. Any 
action taken under that article, 
including any taken by the 
United Stales, has to be reported 
to the Security Council It is the 
country concerned that lakes the 
action. U is the report that goes 
to the Security Council. 

Mr Leo Abse (Torfaen. Lab): Is 
it not dear from all her state- 
ments foal her basic political 
infatuation with Reagan is lead- 
ing her to the misjudgements of 
a giddy girl? Why is she feeding 
the paranoia of Gadaffi and 
providing him with corrobora- 
tion of hb crazy conspiratorial 
theory? 

Why provide him with a 
theatre in which he can place his 
self-immolating terrorists? Mrs 
Thatcher: He is asking me in 
(ace of attacks and planned 
terrorist attacks to refuse the US 
the right of self-defence: 

Sir Eldon Griffiths (Bury St 
Edmunds. C): Since most of 
these aircraft took off from the 
same bases in my constituency 
which gave us such valuable 
help before British forces landed 
in the Falkland^, will she make 
dear that the proper counter- 
measures are available to pro- 
tect local people from any 
Libyan revenge? 

Mrs Thatcher: 1 am very 
much aware of the courage of 
the people who live around the 
bases to which he refers in 
wartime and now. We are very 
much aware that terrorists, 
including those supported by 
Libya, have shown by past 
action that they have the capac- 
ity to make indiscriminate at- 
tacks. 

British military establish- 
ments and Government depart- 
ments have been placed on a 
High level of alert. It is im- 
portant for the public to be alen 
to the possibility of indiscrimi- 
nate attack and to report any- 
thing suspicious. States not only 
have the right of self-defence. 
There are times when they have 
the dutv to assert il 


UN ineffective against 
state terrorism 


Mr lan Gow (Eastbourne, Q: 
Does she recall that four years 
ago. faced with the impotence of 
the Security Council and despite 
criticism from within and with- 
out this House, she took mili- 
tary action to uphold the law? 

Does she further agree that 
the advice from Mr Kinnock 
and from Dr Owen to pul our 
trust in the Security Council was 
unrealistic and her decision was 
totally justified? 

Mrs Thatcher: Yes. I believe 
that the advice just to go to the 
Security Council would be to- 
tally unrealistic in taking action 
to stop state-sponsored 
terrorism. 

The Security Council is not in 
a position to take effective 
action. The action to which he 
referred four years ago was 
action in which we received 
splendid support from the US. 
far beyond the call of duty. 

Mr Terence Datis (Bir- 
mingham. Hodge HilL Lab): Is 
she really saying under Atride 
51 the killing and wounding of 
innocent people with a bomb m 
a nightclub justifies killing and 
wounding other innocent people 
with a bomb from an Fill? 

Mrs Thatcher He is not giving 
the whole case. There has been 
un para I el led state-sponsored 
terrorism from Libya. There is 
evidence of Libyan complicity 
and it has been escalating. There 
is evidence that future attacks 
are planned. 

There is an inherent right to 
self-defence. There are risks 
involved in exercising that nghL 
If one never took any action 
because of the risks involved the 
alternative would be to be 
totally and utterly passive and 
supine before Colonel Gadaffi 
and anyone else who practices 
5 :a\c -sponsored terrorism. 

Mr John Browne (Winchester. 
C>: In the near future terrorisi 
overlords like Gadaffi will be in 
position to dispatch atomic 
bombs, if not by missile then m 
the cargo holds of scheduled 
erv Mian aircraft. 

In v iew of such a threat, there 
is a clear duty on our leaders to 
act with fortitude. It is ex- 
tremely unwise merely io tease a 
dangerous snake. It should ci- 
ther be left alone or killed. 

Mrs Thatcher. 1 believe there is 
no country other than Libya 
«hcre there is a government 
that has inspired such a 
remorseless campaign of terror- 


ist attacks and where .we have 
specific evidence of their 
complicity in these attacks. 

Linder the circumstances I 
believe the US was absolutely 
right and within its rights to 
exercise its right to self-defence. 
We gave the US our support for 
their action and our consent to 
their use of our bases here. 

Mr Jack Ashley (Stoke-on- 
Trent South. Lab y No counuy 
in the world has a better record 
for firm, intelligent and cal- 
culated responses to terrorism 
than we have. It is therefore 
incredible, in the light of that 
record, foal she should associate 
us with the emotional spasm by 
President Reagan which has left 
the world a more dangerous 
place and imperilled the lives of 
some British citizens. 

Will she please tell President 
Reagan that now she has paid 
her Falklandsdebt foe next time 
LIS bombers are used from 
Britain it should only be for 
Naio purposes? 

Mrs Thatcher: To leave a 
terrorist government sponsoring 
terrorism the world over secure 
in the knowledge that no other 
government would ever take 
any action or use foe right of 
self-defence would be to in- 
crease the danger of terrorism. 
Mr Cyril Townsend 
(Bexley heath. C): Most of the 
rcccm terrorist incidents involv- 
ing foe Middle East are due to 
the Abu Nidal group rather than 
Libya. Many of us are deeply 
troubled by her uncritical sup- 
port for foe US which has 
grossly over-reacted to provoca- 
tion. Does she not agree that 
over-reaction would only fuel 
terrorism, bitterness and 
bloodshed? 

Mrs Thatcher l disagree totally. 
The US had asked Europe to 
take other action against state- 
sponsored terrorism, it asked 
for economic sanctions, (tasked 
that «c should expel all Libyan 
People's Bureaux. Totally in- 
sufficient action was taken by 
Europe over the past many 
years. 

In the face of evidence of 
complicity of Libya in terrorist 
action and of evidence of future 
planned actions. I believe the 
US was right and had a duty to 
invoke its right to self-defence. 1 
hope he. too. will appreciate foe 
staunch alliance of the US in 
Nato and in defending freedom 
in this country. 


Britain cannot be 
supine or passive 
towards terrorism 


PM’s QUESTIONS 


If Britain always refused to take 
risks because of the con- 
sequences then terrorist govern- 
ments would win and one would ' 
only.be able to cringe before 
them. Mrs Margaret Thatcher, 
the Prime Minister, said at 
question time. She defended the 
decision to allow American 
bases in Britain to be used for . 
the launch of the American air 
strike against Libya early today. 

She said that to refuse to take 
action against terrorism would 
mean that Britain was supine 
and passive in the face of that 
terrorism. 

I believe (she said) that in the 
circumstances the United States 
was within Article 51 (of the 
United Nations Charter) and 
exercised its inherent right to 
self-defence to try to turn the 
tide against terrorism and to 
discourage those who engaged in 
it and in state terrorism to desist 
from further attacks. 

Under the arrangements for 
the use of bases by the American 
forces, British agreement was 
required and sought. After dis- 
cussion ir was obtained on the 
basis that the action would be' 
targets within Article 51. 

Mr Robert litherfamd (Man- 
chester Central, Lab): By giving 
permission for the launching of 
FI I Is for a military attack on 
the mainland of Libya, she has 
not only broken the confidence 
of the European Community, 
and international law. but now 
has the blood of innocents on 
her hands. 

This bind of build-up of 
.American naval power in foe 
Mediterranean is a threat to 
world peace and she should 
divorce herself from Reagan's 
Ram bo policies in the area. This 
is not the answer to inter- 
national terrorism. These are 
foe questions nations are asking. 
Mrs Thatcher: 1 believe that the 
attacks which foe United States 
made on Libya were within the 
inherent right of self-defence. 
That was why we gave our 
support to that action and gave 
consent to the use of bases in 
Britain for that purpose. 

Mr Henry Bellingham (North- 
West Norfolk, Cy There is 
considerable concern in East 
Anglia about the use to which 
United States bases have been 
put. That understandable anxi- 
ety could be allayed if it is 
proved beyond doubt that 
United Slates raids were not 
contrary to Article 51 and were 
strictly necessary to meet Lib- 
yan attacks. 

Mrs Thatcher. I believe United 
States action against terrorisi- 
relaled targets was taken , in the 
light of evidence that further 
terrorist attacks were planned 
and were inherent self-defence 
under Article SI. 

Mr Neil Kuinock. Leader of the 
Opposition: The country will 
want to know as soon as possible 
what steps have been taken by 
the Government to safeguard 
the welfare of British citizens in 
Libya and in other countries in 
the Middle EasL 
Mrs Thatcher As soon as we 
broke off diplomatic relations 
with Libya following the St 
James's Square incident, we told 
our people who remained there 
that they remained there on 
their own responsibility. 
Representation there is through 
the British Interests Section of 
the Italian Embassy. Our repre- 
sentative will do his best to 
advise British citizens. 

Mr Kinnock said that not only- 
in Libya, but elsewhere. British 
people would be extremely 
vulnerable and proper safe- 
guards should given to ensure 
their security. 

Mrs Thatcher In terrorist at- 
tack there is no universal safe- 
guard. AIT posts have been 
alerted and security stepped up. 
Mr Dennis Walters (West bury. 

Cy While recognizing the 
frustration felt by the United 
States when dealing with the 
Libyan Government will not 
the effect of the American attack 
on Tripoli be to strengthen 
Colonel Gadaffi and weaken our 
moderate friends in EgypL Jor- 
dan and Saudi Arabia. 

Mrs Thatcher I do not believe 
it will have that effect. There has 
been state-sponsored terrorism 
by Libya for a long lime. 

Mr Tony Bean (Chesterfield. 
Lab): Is she herself standing at 
the dispatch box on behalf ofthc 
Government and condoning 
and supporting foe death of 
civilians in Libva who were 
killed by aircraft living with her 
consent from British bases when 
the House of Commons had 
neither been informed nor con- 
sulted nor given any approval of 
this act? 


way to deal with terrorism is to 
aet'iikc terrorists ourselves? 

Mrs Thatcher: The discussion 
was to secure targets and action 
proportionate to the threat and 
to secure that the action taken 
by the US was within Article 5 1 - 
Tnc US. and wc. believe that 
action was within Article 51. 

Could I refer him to the 
leading article in foe Daily 
Mirror yesterday — as robust a ' 
leader as ever I have seen. 

Mr Charles Morrison (Devizes. 
C): Two weeks ago there was a 
skirmish between the US and 
Libya. Yesterday there was a 
major attack by the US on 
Libya. Could she say what 
convinces her that this escala- 
tion in events will not continue. 

Mrs Thatcher There has been 
an escalation in terrorism tor 
some time and we have all been 
subjected to it in this country as 
welt as elsewhere. The question 
was at what time did foe L5 
attempt to invoke foe right or 
self-defence or just go on being 
passive and supine. 

Dr Darid Owen. Leader of the 
SDP: Under the Church ill-Tru- 
man 1952 agreement the matter 
of decision as to whether to use 
foe bases is a matter for joint 
decision and does that not lay an 
obligation on the Government 
to prove that Article 51 has been 
fully used and produce its 
evidence to the Security 
Council? 

Mrs Thatcher The Security 
Council has of course con- 
demned terrorism but equally 
that condemnation has been 
without effect. Therefore is does 
not seem further condemnation 
by the Security Council would 
have any effect this time. 

He is right that foe arrange- 
ments under which US bases are 
used in this country have been 
foe same for well over 30 years 
and have not changed Under 
these arrangements our agree- 
ment was required. It was 
sought and. after discussion and 
question, it was obtained on the 
basis that the action would boon 
targets within Article 51. 

Dr Maurice Miller (East 
Kilbride. Lab): Did she consult 
our EEC partners, some of 
whom are members of Nato?. If 
not. why not? If she did. why did 
she disregard their views? 

Mrs Thatcher said the Secretary 
of State for Foreign and 
Commonwealth Affairs (Sir 
Geoffrey Howe) had been with 
some of the United Kingdom's 
EEC partners on Monday. The 
UK had not consulted on the 
use of this country's bases, 
because that was a matter for its 
own decision. 

' Mr Jonathan .Aftken fThanet 
South. O said Mrs That cner had 
taken a 'totally correct decision 
— (Conservative cheera) — to 
permit the use of British bases 
for the attack. Had she been 
influenced, not only by loyalty 
to an ally with a just cause, but 
also by the feet that there were 
fewer risks to Libyan civilians 
and US personnel by using foe 
much more precise equipment 
available in the shape of these 
aircraft available? 

Mrs Thatcher said that had 
been a factor. The decision had 
also been influenced by the fact 
that the United States had 
330.000' forces in Europe to 
defend the liberty of Europe. 
They had been subject to terror- 
ist attack and it was inconceiv- 
able that the Llnited Kingdom 
should refuse them the right to

vative cheers). 

Mr John McWiffiam (Blaydon. 
Lab) asked why the bases in this 
country had been used when the 
capability for the attack existed 
with the battie fleet nearer the 
coast of Libya. 



Foot: We acted like 
terrorists oarsehes 


Mrs Thatcher: That action by 
the US look place against 
continued state-sponsored ter- 
rorism by Libya and I believe 
foe US was entitled to use its 
inherent right to self-defence. 

Mr Patrick McNair-Wilson 
(New ForesL O LIntil some real

Mrs Thatcher: We take as much 
action as we possibly can to

peoples in the Middle East and

We have taken peaceful ac- 
tion against terrorism, much of 
which has unfortunately not 
secured its objective and the US 
decided to exercise, in the light 
of specific targets, its inherent 
right io self-defence. 

Mr Michael Foot (Blaenau 
Gwent. Lab): What discussion 
was there with the US about the 
acceptable level of civilian 
destruction and murder which 
might follow from an attack on 
Libya? Was there any discussion 
with President Reagan about 
these matters? 

Did she not try to restrain his 
action on that account? Will she 
now acknowledge that the xvorst

were more accurate on their

Mr Stefan Terlezki (Cardiff

there is a strong link between 
Libya and the IRA which has 
resulted in the killing of so many 
innocent people in this country? 
(Loud Conservative cheers). 

Mrs Thatcher: The Lit

that must be taken into account. 

Mr Demis Skinner (Bolsover.

Mr George Foulltes (Carrick.

As extra armed officers were 
brought on patrol, one defence 
expert canvassed the suffies- 
tion yesterday that Libya 
might use ihe Provisional IRA 
as proxy bombers because the 
Irish terrorists could owe Lib- 
ya a debt for past training. But 
a senior Scotland Yard source

and pointed instead to a

The anti-terrorist branch at 
Scotland Yard was on alert for 
possible terrorist attacks but 
one source pointed out that in 
the past the Libyans have 
never mounted attacks in this 
country on US or British 
targets. They have always 
struck against opposition Lib- 
yan politicians.

The wife of a British. engi-

day of her fears for her 
husband's safety. 

Mrs Grace Maxwell, aged

Glasgow: “I couldn't believe it

the American action. I just 
hope it doesn't have an adverse

Mr Bob Maxwell was pot

An instant ban on airports, 
airlines or countries involved 
in future acts of terrorism was 
agreed by the 60.00(Htron| 
International Federation of 
Airline Pilots Associations, in 
London yesterday. 

Any further acts of terror- 
ism would risk pilots refusing 
to flv to offending countries or 
to airports from which terror- 
ist acts originated- Efforts will 
be made to bring other world 
aviation stafT organizations 
into line. Captain Reg Smith,

Total support from Bntisn

arose. Captain Smith said, but 
no action had yet been decid-

Britain 
‘could be 
target for 
attacks’ 

Britain could be a target for 
Libyan attacks as a resalt o* 
allowing United Slates planes 
to bomb Libya from bases ra 
Britain, the Libyan represen- 
tative to Britain said 

yesterday. . . 

Mr Salam Msaiam said: 
“I'm not going to say whether 
or not Britain will be a target, 
but before this attack the 
leader of the revolution (Colo- 
nel Cadaffi) said that any 
Mediterranean country whose 
bases are used for aggression 
against Libya will be a mili- 
tary target. " 

However. Mr Msaiam did 
rule out any reprisals against 
Britain or other foreign na- 
tionals. including Americans, 
living in Libya. 

Mr Msaiam came to Britain 
to look after Libyans after the 
death of WPC Yvonne Fletch- 
er in St James's Square. 


Bombing worries air base villagers 


Misgivings about the US 
decision to bomb Tripoli were 
being felt yesterday in the 
villages which surround the 
American air base at Upper 
Heyford. Oxfordshire, from 
which several of the US planes 
took off (Paul Vallely writes). 

Many local residents, even 
those who said they under- 


stood the need for action 
against Libya, doubted the 
wisdom of ihe bombing and 
expressed fears that their 
homes could become targets 
for terrorist reprisals. 

“People are afraid- Any 
facility used by American 
servicemen in Britain mav 
now be considered a target." 


Mrs Barbara Gibson, postmis- 
tress of Upper Heyford. said. 

Landlords of several public 
houses used by Americans 
said they intend to increase 
securiiy.“In the light of the 
Berlin disco bomb, it is a very 
real fear." Mr Alan Hendy. 
publican of the Fox and 
Hounds at Ardlcy. said. 



Mr Hardy deftly demonstrates that there's me 
to a Merlin phone system than meets the ea 

BEING AN EXPLANATION OF HOW MR HARDY’S MERLIN SYSTEM COULD PERFORM THE 
ASTOUNDING FEAT OF TRANSMITTING DATA ALONG THE TELEPHONE LINE. 


S ince his childhood, Ernest 
Hardy had inspired some- 
thing close to awe in 
ordinary mortals. His twin 
attributes of rare vision and 
uncanny judgement manifested 
.themselves as enviable good 
fortune. And the potency of 
these rare gifts was apparent 
today in the magnitude of 
Hardy's success. 

PLENTY OF ROOM 
FOR DATA 

“Tell me, Mr Hardy” asked 
an over-zealous young graduate 
as Hardy swept through the 
office, “what sort of phone system 
do we have here?” Hardy 
stopped dead in his tracks. 

' “A Merlin IT440 from 
British Telecom'.’ Hardy won- 
dered if the question was 
bom of genuine interest or idle 
flattery. “Andthere'salotmore 
to the IT440 than meets the 
ear”, he continued, “Let me 
explain. Traditionally, we use the 
phone system for speech, but the 
fact is that speech occupies only a 
fraction of a phone line's capacity. 
Human speech is of low 
frequency whereas data can be 
transmitted at much higher 
frequencies. The two can thus 
share the same phone line in 
perfect harmony. 7 ’ 

“Without interference?” asked 
the graduate timidly. 

Hardy smiled benevolently. 
“Without interference. In fact, it’s 


possible for several data signals to 
share a single phone line. Oh 
yes”, said Hardy. “With a Merlin 



Datelnet system from British 
Telecom you'll find you have 
plenty of room for data.” 


THE LONG AND SHORT OF 

DATA TRANSMISSION 

Hardy continued, “For short 
distances, say up to 10 kilometres 
or just around the building, a 
Merlin Datelnet system is ideal. 
But the phone lines don’t stop 
at the front door, do. they?” 

The young graduate shook 
his head, following Hardy along 
the corridor. “And so we have a 


range of Merlin Datel modems 
from British Telecom, all capable 
of transmitting data anywhere in 
the world, using the ordinary 
public telephone network!’ 

INTEGRATION AT ITS 
MOST INTIMATE 

“But the abundance of 
our data demands something 
Ip-; even better.” Hardy led the 
'. graduate to a room at the end of 
die corridor and flung open a 
door. “Here is everything 
we have talked about in a 
single unit. The Merlin IT440 
from British Telecom. Voice, 
data and text all over the 
? 3 phone lines. Behold a fully 
integrated system. ’ 

The young man turned to 
look at Hardy. The IT440 was a 
truly remarkable system and 
he was a considerably wiser 
graduate than before. 

He was beginning to realise 
why they said Hardy had vision.

Diplomats said that there 
was a real danger of a split in 
Nato as well. Nato states in 
the southern EEC — Greece, 
Spain and Italy — and West 
Germany are fearful of Arab 
reprisals against American 
bases and facilities.

Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, will come 
under pressure to explain 
Britain's role when EEC for- 
eign ministers meet again 
tomorrow in emergency ses- 
sion in Paris to reassess the 
Libyan crisis. 

“Britain was caught be-

Sir Geoffrey Howe offered

that American action was 
imminent, stressing three 
points: that America had the 


right to act in self-defence 
under Article 51 of the UN 
Charter that there was no 
"moral equivalence" between 
Libyan-backed terrorism and 
"anything the Americans may 
do": and that if the EEC failed 
to act firmly it should "not be

actions.

The shock felt in Italy after

pressed by Signor Belli no 
Craxi. the Prime Minister, 
who said that “far from weak- 
ening terrorism, military ac- 
tion risked provoking exp- 
losive reactions of fan- 
aticism". 

He had come directly from 
a Cabinet meeting, so his. 
statement may be taken as 
having been approved by his 
coalition- colleagues. 

Shortly before he spoke, the 
Vatican confirmed that Mon- 
signor Giovanni Martinelli. 
the Apostolic Vicar of Tripoli, 
who was arrested on Thurs- 
day. had been freed. It is 
thought that four members of 
religious orders arrested with

the raid was that of the US 
alone, taken without the ap-

Libyan threats 
unacceptable 


3. The Twelve are con- 
vinced that terrorist attacks do 
not serve whatever political 
cause the perpetrators claim to 
be furthering Outrages like 
the ones recently perpetrated 
on the TWa aircraft and in a 
discotheque in Berlin can 
never be justified. The Twelve 
vigorously condemn these 
outrages, deeply deplore the 
loss of innocent life involved 
and express their sympathy 
with the victims and their 
families. 

4. They also reject the 
unacceptable threats made by 
Libyan leaders against mem- 
ber’ states which deliberately 
encourage recourse to acts of 
violence and directly threaten 
Europe. Any action of this sort 
will meet with a vigorous and 
appropriate response on the 
pan of the Twelve. 

5. The Twelve have decided 
to act according to the follow- 
ing lines regarding Libya and. 
where necessary, regarding 
other states dearly implicated 
in supporting terrorism: 

• Restrictions on the free- 
dom of movement of diplo- 
matic and consular personnel: 

■l Reduction of the staff of 


with them. 

7. They have instructed the 
experts concerned immediate- 
ly to identify appropriate mea- 
sures to be taken by the 
Twelve, in particular, security 
measures, the application of 
international conventions on 
diplomatic and consular privi- 
leges and immunities and the 
safely of civil aviation. The 
experts’ report will be consid- 
ered at the Ministerial meet- 
ing to be held next week. 

8. The Twelve are increas- 
ing their co-operation with 
other states in the field of 
intelligence, the improvement 
of security measures and. 
generally. i° prevent acts of 
terrorism. 

9. In order to contribute to 
eliminating international ter- 
rorism. ihc Twelve will use 
their joint influence in con- 
tacts with Libya and. where 
necessary, with other states 
concerned. 

10. They have decided to 
inform the Arab States and the 
League of Arab States about 
their conclusions and to invite 
them to analyse jointly and 
urgently the issue of interna- 
tional terrorism. 

1 1. Finally and in order to 
enable the achievmcni of a 
political solution, avoiding 
further escalation of military 
tension in the region with all 
the inherent dangers, the 
Twelve underline the need for 
restrain! on all sides. 


The following is a transcript 
of President Reagan's broad- 
cast address on Monday nighL 
as supplied by The Sew York 
Times: 

My fellow Americans, at 7 
o'clock this evening Eastern 
time, air and naval forces of 
the United States launched a 
series of strikes against the 
headquarters, terrorist facili- 
ties and military assets that 
support Muammar Gadaffi's 
subversive activities. 

The attacks were concen- 
trated and carefully targeted to 
minimize casualties among 
the Libyan people, with whom 
wc have no quarrel. 

From initial reports, our 
forces have succeeded in their 
mission. Several weeks ago. in 
New Orleans. I warned Colo- 
nel Gadaffi we would hold his 
regime accountable for any 
new terrorist attacks launched 
against American citizens. 
More recently. 1 made it clear 
we would respond as soon as 
we determined conclusively 
who »as responsible for such 
attacks. 

On April 5 in West Berlin a 
terrorist bomb exploded in a 
nightclub frequented by Am- 
erican servicemen. Sergeant 
Kenneth Ford and a young 
Turkish woman were killed 
and 230 others were wounded, 
among them some 50 Ameri- 
can military personnel. 

This monstrous brutality is 
but the latest act in Colonel 


Gadaffi's reign of terror. The 
evidence is now conclusive 
that the terrorist bombing of 
La Belle discotheque was 
planned and executed under 
the direct orders of the Libyan 
regime. 

On March 25. more than a 
week before the attack, orders 
were sent from Tripoli to the 
Libyan People's Bureau in 
East Berlin to conduct a 
terrorist attack against Ameri- 
cans. to cause maximum and 


Great success 
of mission 


indiscriminate casualties. Lib- 
ya's agents then planted the 
bomb. 

On April 4. ihe People's 
Bureau alerted Tripoli that the 
attack would be carried out 
the following morning. The 
next day they reported back to 
Tripoli on the great success of 
their mission. 

Our evidence is direct, it is 
precise, it is irrefutable. We 
have solid evidence about 
other attacks Gadaffi has 
planned against the United 
States' installations and diplo- 
mats and even American 
tourists. 

Thanks to close co-opera- 
tion with our fnends. some of 
these have been prevented. 
With the help of French 
authorities, we recently abort- 
ed one such attack: a planned 


massacre using grenades and 
small arms of civilians waiting 
in lines for visas at an Ameri- 
can Embassy. 

Colonel Gadaffi is not only 
an enemy of the United Slates. 
His record of subversion and 
aggression against the neigh- 
boring states in Africa is well 
documented and well known. 
He has ordered the murder of 
fellow Libyans in countless 
countries. He has sanctioned 
acts of terror in Africa, Europe 
and the Middle East, as well as 
the Western hemisphere. To- 
day we have done what we bad 
to do. If necessary, we shall do 
it again. 

It gives me no pleasure to 
say that, and I wish it were 
otherwise. Before Gadaffi 
seized power in 1969. the 
people of Libya had been 
friends of the United Slates, 
and I'm sure that today most 
Libyans are ashamed and 
disgusted that this man has 
made their country a synonym 
for barbarism around the 
world. 

The Libyan people are a 
decent people caught in the 
grip of a tyrant. 

To our friends and allies in 
Europe who co-operated in 
today's mission, I would only- 
say you have the primary 
gratitude of the American 
people. Europeans who re- 
member history understand 
better than most that there is 
no securilv. no safeiv, in the 


appeasement of eviL It must 
be the core of Western policy 
that there be no sanctuary for 
terror, and to sustain such a 
policy, free men and free 
nations must unite and work 
together. 

Sometimes it is said that by

imposing sanctions against 
Colonel Gadaffi or by striking 
at his terrorist installations, 
wc only magnify- the man’s 
importance — that the proper 
wav to deal with him is to 
ignore him. I do not agree. 

Long before I came into this 
office. Colonel Gadaffi had 


engaged in acts of internation- 
al terror — acts that put him 
outside the company of civi- 
lized men. For years, however, 
he suffered no economic or 
political or military sanction, 
and the atrocities mounted in 
number, as did the innocent 
dead and wounded. 

And for us to ignore, by 
inaction, the slaughter of 
American civilians and Amer- 
ican soldiers, whether in 
nightclubs or airline termi- 
nals. is simply not in the 
American tradition. When our 
citizens are abused or attacked 
anywhere in the world, on the 
direct orders of a hostile 
regime, we will respond, so 
long as Tm in ibis Oval Office. 
Self-defence is not only our 
right, it is our duty. It is the 
purpose behind the mission 
undertaken tonight — a mis- 
sion fully consistent with Arti- 
cle 51 of the United Nations 
Charter. 

We believe that this pre- 
emptive action against his 
terrorist installations will not 
only diminish Colonel Gad- 
affi's capacity to export terror 
— it will provide him with 
incentives and reasons to alter 
his criminal behavior. I have 
no illusion that tonight's ac- 
tion will bring down the 
curtain on Gadaffi's reign of 
terror, but this mission, vio- 
lent though it was. can bring 
closer a safer and more secure 
world for decent men and 


women. We will persevere. 

This afternoon we consult- 
ed with the leaders of Con- 
gress regarding what we were 
about to do, and why. To- 
night. I salute the skill and 
professionalism of the men 
and women pf our armed 
forces who carried out this 
mission. It's" an - honour to be 
your commander-in-cHief. 

We Americans are slow to 
anger: We always-seek peace- 
ful avenues before resorting to

the use of force, and we did. 
We tried quiet diplomacy, 
public condemnation, eco- 
nomic sanctions and demon- 
strations of military force. 
None succeeded. Despite our 
repeated warnings. Gadaffi 
continued his reckless policy 
of intimidation, his relentless 
pursuit of terror. 

He counted on America to 
be passive. He counted wrong. 
I warned that there should be 
no place on earth where 
terrorists can rest and train 
and practice their deadly 
skills. I meant iL 1 said that we 
would act. with othere if 
possible and alone if neces- 
sary. to insure that terrorists

That is what Dr Ianmfa

in what was left 


a serious new East- West date 
stems from the difficult rela- 
tionship between the Kremlin 
and Colonel Gadaffi. who is 
one of its closest allies in the 
Arab world and a recipient or 
large amounts of military 
hardware.. 

The strains were highlighted 


sponse to the raids on Tripoli 
and Benghazi. 

But observers feel that there 
might come a point — a “red 
line" — beyond which Mos- 
cow would feel it had to give 
its ally more overt military 
support. This would include 
any serious US attacks on the 
many Soviet military advisers 
serving in Libya. 

“The danger is if the Soviet 
Union feels that for some 
reason it is losing credibility 
by not doing more," one 
observer said.- 


gested that barely one in ten of 
the aircraft may be

The frigate is thought to be 
in Italy undergoing repairs, 
and many of the aircraft will 
lack the latest equipment. 

It is unlikely, therefore, that 
they would attempt to take on 
major American or European 
forces. But Libya could cer- 
tainly mount attacks on mer- 
chant shipping or civil 
airliners, and possibly rapid, 
fairly short range air attacks 
into southern Europe. 


Americans yesterday gave 
overwhelming support for 
President Reagan's Mow. say- 
ing “we have io show we are 
strong — this was long 
overdue". Dissent was hard to 
find. 

But underlying the general 
satisfaction, there was concern 
and an expectation that Libya 
will seek revenge, disappoint- 
ment over the patchy support 
from Europe and praise for the 
role played by Britain. 

“Take lhaL KhadafyT ex- 
ulted the AV'i 1 York Post. Two 
lelcvison networks carried 
“America Strikes Back" logos

In bars, people raised their 
glasses and cheered, "h is high 
time we stood up for ourselves 
and showed some muscle — 
The President did what he had 
to do and we are right behind 
him." 


Congressional reaction was 
also generally favourable and 
in tunc with public opinion. 

The New York Times com- 
mented: “Even the most scru-

disclosures by President Rea- 
gan of sensitive intelligence 
information about Libya dem- 
onstrates a hitherto unknown 
ability of the United States to 
penetrate the secret messages 
of other countries. 

“Oor evidence is direct, it is 
precise, it is irrefutable," Mr 
Reagan said on tele fsion. 

Collecting the secret com- 
munications of foreign govern- 
ments is the work of the 
National Security' Agency 
(NSA), equivalent to Britain’s 


shaped aerials protruding 
from rooftops. 

Mr Reagan said that on 
March 25 there was a message 
from Tripoli to the Libyan 
Peoples' Bnrean in East Berlin 
directing an attack on Ameri- 
cans. The day before. US 
fighter planes had attacked 
Libyan patrol boats in the Gulf 
of Sine as well as a missile 
radar site on the Libyan coast. 

Mr Reagan added that on 
the evening of April 4 the

Bhutto success 
prompts Zia 

to threaten 
new emergency 

From Hasan Akhiar, Islamabad 


Mr Aslam Khaitak. the 
Interior Minister of Pakistan, 
has given a warning that the 
Government might rc impose 
the state of emergency lifted in 
December after 20 years, if 
attempts are made to create 
chaos now that political activ- 
ity has been permitted in the 
country. 

The largest Urdu-Ianguagc 
newspaper, which quoted the 
minister, said that his com- 
ments were made in the 
context of the tour of Punjab 
b> Miss Benazir Bhutto, the 
most important anti-govern- 
ment leader. 

Another report said that the 
administration might prevent 
Miss Bhutto from continuing 
her tour, which has been 
attracting vast crowds. Some- 
times her cavalcade has been 
slowed to walking pace 

The Prime Minister. Mr 


Muhammad Khan Juncjo, 
was to discuss measures to 
meet Miss Bhutto's challenge 
at a high-level meeting later 
Iasi nighL 

Miss Bhutto, who now leads 
the Pakistan People's Party, 
on the sixth day of her 
campaign has stepped up her 
demands for immediate elec- 
tions and for the resignation of 
President Zia ul-Haq. 

General Zia and other gov- 
ernment leaders have rejected 
her demands. 

Accounts of Miss Bhutto's 
public meetings and proces- 
sions in the press show that 
she has been able to arouse 
considerable public sympathy 
for herself. 

Her political opponents pre- 
dict. however, that she will 
become a spent force in a few 
weeks as she appears vague 
about her political intentions. 


13 held in football scandal 

Rome (Reuter) — Police 
have charged 13 people with 
conspiring to rig results of 
Italian football matches in an 
alleged betting racket, and

death to celebration 


Dhaka (Reuter) - A lethal 
hailstorm lashing the Bangla- 
desh capital area has killed 
nearly 50 people and injured 
more than 400. bringing trage- 
dy to colourful ceremonies 
marking the Bengali new year. 

The sudden storm on Mon- 
day night brought winds of 
about 60 mph and dropped 
hailstones weighing up to 2 lb. 
mostly on the suburbs. 


Houses were flattened, com- 
munications disrupted and 
the windscreens of more than 
700 cars shattered. Insurance 
officials said vehicle damage

Defence objects to 
judge’s questions 
in Artukovic trial 

From Dessa Trevisan, Zagreb 

asked who was the leader of 


Mr Andriga Artukovic. the 
wartime Minister of the Interi- 
or of the Croatian puppet 
regime, admitted during cross- 
examination on the second 
day of his trial for alleged war 
crimes yesterday that be had 
**heard of concentration 
camps", but denied vigorously 
having organized them or 
having issued orders for bru- 
talities and large-scale exter- 
minations of Jews and Serbs. 

Mr Artukovic, aged 86 — 
who appeared an old. bewil- 
dered man on the first day of 
his trial — seemed astute and 
alert, answering dearly and 
remembering some events but 
choosing not to remember 
others as the presiding judge 
tried to establish his role in 
wartime atrocities. 

Clearly dissatisfied with 
some of his replies, the de- 
fence objected formally to 
what they thought were lead- 
ing questions put by the 
presiding judge. They said that 
Mr Artukovic was, at his age, 
prone to suggestions. 

His failing memory was 
made apparent when he was 


Nazi Germany. He replied 
“Ribbentrop". (hen quickly 
corrected himsdf and said 
with a smile; “Hitler." 

Among the charges are 

those concerning the genocide 
of Jews. 200.000 of whom 
perished in Croatian concen- 
tration camps. . , 

Mr Artukovic denied vigor- 
ously having played any im- 
portant part in it, saying that 
decisions about racial dis- 
crimination were passed by 
the head of the Croatian state, 
Mr Ante Pavelic. who died in 
.Argentina about 20 years ago. 

He said that while the 
initiative came from above, 
and that he. as Minister of the 
Interior, was asked to give bis 
opinion, the implementation 
of the act was left to the 
“experts" lower down. 

Mr Artukovic dodged bis 
personal responsibility on sev- 
eral points, but vanity- clearly 
overruled when the judge 
asked him whether he had 
enjoyed the trust of Mr 
Pavelic. He agreed, nodding 
with a broad grin. 









Here is a booklet which brings together details of the whole range of 
schemes designed to get more people into work. 

It's called 'Action for Jobs’ - and brings together initiatives in the fields 
of training, employment and enterprise

essential for tomorrow's industry and commerce. 

The booklet emphasises the right vocational training 
for school-leavers, schemes for adult workers to be trained ; 
and re-trained, and includes details of help for industry - 
especially small firms - to enable them to train their 
workforce. And keep them trained 




Creating new work opportunities 

There are also schemes which help those who have been out of work 
for a long time to get back into work again on projects which benefit them 
and the communities in which they live. 

Encouraging enterprise 

The creation of flourishing small businesses is a major factor in the 
development of our economy, and for generating new employment oppor- 
unities. This booklet explains the various ways in which enterprise is being 
helped and encouraged to overcome the many difficulties and obstacles. 

One thing is common to all: they are 
designed to help people help themselves and

Execution 
still in 44 
countries 

By Onr Diplomatic Staff 

Amnesty International the 
human rights organization, 
has evidence of more than 
1,100 people being executed 
throughout the world in 1985, 
but these were only part of a 
much lzuger. unknown, total. 

Amnesty said yesterday it 
had evidence of 1425 execu- 
tions and 1489 death sen- 
tences, substantially fewer 
than the 1,51 3 executions and 
2,068 sentences in 1984. 

It was impossible to know 
whether this reflected a change 
in the r cal numbers, because 
the true totals every year are 
believed much higher than 
those which could be doc- 
umented, it said. 

Amnesty counts only those 
cases on which it has individ- 
ual details. Bom Iraq, where 
hundreds of people were re- 
ported to have been put to 
death for criminal or political 
offences, only 19 executions 
! confirmed by the Government 
1 are included in die figures. 

The documented totals for 
I China, of 135, and 470 for 
Iran, are believed for lower 
than the real number executed 
in those countries. 

Executions were reported in 
1985 from 44 countries and 
death sentences from 61 coun- 
tries, but the figures include 
jonly those cases in which 
some form of trial and sen- 
tence was believed or claimed 
to have taken fiacc. 

They exclude summary 
killings of prisoners reported 
from a number of countries. 

Amnesty says it sees some 
encouraging developments in 
the movement to abolish the 
death penalty. 


Flaws seen 
In UN plan 
for Cyprus 

From Mario Modfono 
Athens 

Athens and Nicosia have 
agreed that the latest United 
Nations proposals fora Cyprus 
settlement do not look at their 
key concern, the withdrawal of 
Turkish troops. 

They say that the plan 
contains many positive points, 
but foe! that some provisions 
undermine the concept of a 
unitary state and that there 
must be consideration of the 
troop withdrawal before an 
interim federal administration 
takes over. 

President Kyprianou, who 
has just concluded his second 
round of consultations here 
with Greek leaders on the 
proposals submitted by Sen or 
Javier Pferez de Cuellar, the UN 
Secretary-General flew back to 
Nicosia last nighL 

The main object of the talks 
was to see how the Greek side 
could ngect the de CiKfflar plan 
as a -negotiating framework 
without raking the blame for 
another, breakdown of the 
peace process. 

The Grades do not want to 
discourage him from pursuing 
his initiative further, and do 
not want to appear to antago- 
nize the US. Britain and the 
Soviet Union, all of which, in 
varying degrees, have given 
their support to the UN effort 

They are particularly keen to 
ensure that the Turkish mili- 
tary presence should end before 
the establishment of a 
bi communal federal adminis- 
tration, a point beyond which 
the Greek-Cypriots’ freedom of 
action will be restricted by a 
Turkish Cypriot vela

Hawke tour to protect 
Australia’s farm trade 

From Tony Duboodin, Melbourne 


Mr Bob Hawke, the Austra- 
lian Prime Minister, left yes- 
terday for a two-week trip to 
the United States and Europe 
in an effort to protect 
Australia's agricultural trade 
from being damaged by the 
trade dispute between Wash- 
ington and the EEC 

The country's rural indus- 
tries face being squeezed out of 
many traditional markets by 
the new US Farm Bill and the 
EEC's subsidized exports. 

After mlfai in Was hi ng ton , 
Mr Hawke wiD visit London, 
Brussels, Borne and Athens. 

He claims that the common 
theme of the trip will be “the 
concern the Government bus 
for the position of Australia's 
rural producers in the light of 
the corruption of international 
markets for agrica&tural com- 
odities". 

In Washington, he win ask 
the Administration to take 
account of the threat to Aus- 
tralian i n tere s t s posed by die 
Farm Bill, which is directed 
against the EEC. 

He will also press for agri- 
culture to be discussed at the 
Tokyo summit of the major 
industrial countries and sug- 
gest that it should have a 
prominent place in the coining 
round of agricultural trade 
negotiations. 

Mr Hawke wiD try to per- 


suade President Reagan to 
endorse the protocol of the 
South Pacific Nuclear Free 
Zone Treaty. 

He will point out that the 
treaty is consistent with

Mixed reaction to 
election of Tutu

flrded" jn ■ the Anglican

It urged him, however, to 
-reject “the methods of change 
of those who are dearly com- 
mitted to violence” and to 
support the search for “con- 
structive reform” through 


April 2 for the imposition on 
Sooth Africa by the outside 
world of punitive >«w«wnip 
sanctions, favoured by most 
Mack political groups bat 
opposed by almost all whites.

This was an obfiqne refer-

front for the ANC.

marks. in which she spoke of

Optimism 
as Brazil 
prices fall 

Sao Paulo (Reuter) — Presi- 
dent Sarney of Brazil has 
announced that consumer 
prices fell by nearly 1.5 per 
.cent in March, and that the 
success of the anti-mflatioo 
programme was guaranteed. 

“The programme d victori- 
ous and .definitive., i . we are 
living a new moment In ihe 
history of the country ”fce 
said in a televised -speech to 
the nation on Monday^ 

Prices fell by 1.48 per cent 
overall, he said, with food 
prices down 5 per cent in 
March, the first month after 
the Government imposed a 
total freeze on prices and 
introduced sweeping reform 
of' the monetary system to 
combat the country’s 250 per 
cent inflation rale. 

According to economists at 
the independent Genulio Var- 
gas Research Foundation, it 
was the first time prices had 
fallen in any month in Brazil 
since September 1957. 

President Sarney said that 
Brazil had changed, and that 
there was now a new spirit that 
would not disappear. 

He said the Government 
pledged to continue social 
programmes aimed at elimi- 
nating poverty and hunger. _

A junior Greek naval officer 
named by a Soviet defector as 
a spy ou Moscow’s payroll has 
bran acquitted unanimously 
by a Greek Navy court 
martial. 

The tribunal, after hearings 
lasting five days, said on 
Monday that the ‘Charges -of 
espionage against. Lieutenant 
Vassilis Serepisios, aged 35, 
had notbeenprovbd. _ , 

lieutenant Serepisios. was 
one of five Greeks named as 
Soviet agents by Mr Sergei 
Bokhan, the Soviet military 
intelligence officer who defect- 
ed from Athens to the United 
States in May last year. 

His acquittal is seen as a 
rebuff to the United States, 
which has delayed the sale of 
railitaiy aircraft to the Greek 
Air Force in the wake of Mr 
Bokhan’s alleged revelations 
about Soviet espionage in 
Greece. 

. Two Greek civflians were 
arrested at the time and 
charged with selling Western 
military technology secrets to 
die R ussians. - One has been 
released on baiL 

During the trial Greek mtd- 
lieence officers who inter- 
viewed Mr Bokhan in Wash- 
ington said that according to 
the defector Lt Serepisios had 
furnished secret Nano docu- 


for 

for 


ments to the Russians 
eight years in return 
payment. 

The court, however, ruled 
that Mr Bokhan was the only 
source of these accusations 
and there had been no inde- 
pendent corroboration. Even 
the prosecutor recommended 
acquittal in the absence of 
convincing confirmation of 
the “serious evidence". 

Lt Serepisios said he had 
been the victim of a malicious 
frame-up because of his left- 
wing ideology and his contacts 
with a prominent member of 
the Greek Communist Party. 

He denied ever having met 
Mr Bokhan or the other Soviet 
ratriligence contacts claimed

Sabah court challenge 
by opposition fails 


Kota Kinabalu (Reuter) - 
The leader of Sabah’s Muslim 
opposition party. Tun Mus- 
lapha Harun, yesterday lost 
his High Court case challeng- 
ing the right of the Chief 
Minister, Daruk Joseph Pairin 
Kiungan. to rule the Malay- 
sian state. 

Several hundred supporters 
of Mr Mustapha’s United 
Sabah National Organization 
(USNO) thronged the court 
which is ringed with barbed 
wire, but no trouble was 
reported. 

Five people were kilted and 
about 20 injured last month in 
bomb -and arson attacks and 
riots as Muslim activists tried 
to oust Datuk Pairin’s largely 
Christian government 
Tun Mustapha was given a 
month m which to appeal 
police had set up road- 
blocks in the state capital of 
Kota Kinabalu to prevent any 
possible repetition of. last 
month’s violence. 

Political life and day-to-day 
government in Sabah has 
come to a virtual standstill 
when Muslim opposition to 


Datuk Pairin’s rule flared after 
his Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) 
won a landslide state election 
victory a year ago. 

Datuk Pairin dissolved the 
assembly in February after 
defections from his party to 
the opposition. 

Fresh elections are due on 
May 5 and 6. 

The Federal Prime Minis- 
ter. Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir 
Mohamad, failed last month 
to patch up the deep differ- 
ences between Datuk Pairin 
and his opponents. 

Datuk Pairin rejects opposi- 
tion accusations that his Gov- 
ernment is anti-Islamic and 
that Muslim civil servants 
suffer discrimination at work. 

Sabah is the only one of 
Malaysia's 13 states not ruled 
by .Dr Mahathir’s Muslim 
Malay-dominated National ■ 
Front Coalition. 

His “Sabah Formula” sug- 
gested that PBS, USNO. and 
another opposition party. 
Bcijaya. should cooperate in 
government under Datuk 
Pairin's role, but Pairin 
hardliners rejected this.

Rival proposals on Contras support 

Debate on US aid widens 

Fran Christopher Thomas, Washington 


Three rival proposals for 
aid to the Nicaraguan Contras 
went before the Democrat' c- 
con trolled House of Represen- 
tatives yesterday, all of them 
aimed al re-establishing a 
dose relationship between the 
United Slates and the anti- 
communist rebels. 

The debate has dearly 
moved beyond the single issue 
of trying to destabilize the 
Sand ini sta Government to the 
huger question of American 
backing for anti-Coxnmunist 
groups around the world, such 
as in Angola and A fghanistan. 
There seems little doubt that 
American aid will soon flow 
to the Nicaraguan 

ters. 

Democrat opponents of 
American military entangle- 
ment in the Nicaraguan con- 


flict attempted yesterday to 
force the parliamentary proce- 
dure that would tie the aid to 
another bill President Reagan 
opposes and has pledged to 
veto. On the eve of the debate 
Mr Reagan said that such 
“subterfuge and backroom 
deals” could lead to a forest of 
legislative delays and endan- 
ger the lives of countless 
young Nicaraguans. 

The two main proposals — 
one from the White House, 
the other from the Democrat 
leadership — would give $100 
million (£66.6 million) to the 
rebels, whose effectiveness as 
a fighting force has clearly 
deteriorated since Congress 
cut off aid in mid-1984. Up to 
then the US had secretly given 
$80 million to the rebels, most 


of it in direct military 
assistance. 

The Democrat version 
would release $30 million 
immediately for training and 
humanitarian aid. The re- 
maining $70 million in mili- 
tary aid would be held for a 
second vote after 90 days 
while other Latin nations and 
the Administration pushed 
Nicaragua to negotiate with 
the Contras. The White House 
version provides for immedi- 
ate. unconditional release of 
the funds. 

• NEW' YORK — Americans 
are uncertain about which side 
the US backs in Nicaragua, 
and only one in four supports 
President Reagan's request for 
$100 million aid for the rebels, 
according to the latest New 
York Times-CBS News Poll. 


Costa Rica pledge to bar rebels 


Panama City (Renter) — 
President-elect Oscar Arias 
Sanchez of Costa Rica has 
said that he intends to stop 
US-hacked Nicaraguan Con- 
tra rebels using Costa Rica as 
a base after he takes office on 
May 8. 

Saying that his country's 
pledge to neutrality should be 
given more than just lip ser- 
vice, he added: “We are not 
going to tolerate the utilization 
of onr territory by Contras.” 

Press reports have since 
1983 documented the use of 


Costa Rica as a haven and 
supply centre for Nicaraguan 
insurgents under the outgoing 
Government of President 
Monge, who has said repeat- 
edly that Costa Rka is neutral 
in regional conflicts. 

But his tacit support of 
Nicaraguan rebels, whose 
principal bases are in Hondu- 
ras, has led critics to label 
Costa Rica a poppet of the 
United States, and has caused 
Costa Rica’s relations with 
Nicaragua, its northern neigh- 


bour, to deteriorate steadily In 
recent years. 

Sendr Arias said that the 
presence of US-backed rebels 
in Costa Rica “endangers oar 
domestic peace and violates 
the neutrality that we have 
proclaimed before the entire 
world”. 

While vowing to prevent 
rebels from continuing to use 
Costa Rica as a springboard 
for attacks inside Nicaragua, 
SeAor Arias said that he 
planned to enact “a real and 
effective neutrality". 


Norwegians gam 
37V2-hour week 


Oslo (Reuter) - Norway 
returned to work yesterday 
after the counuy's worst in- 
dustrial conflict in 55 years. A 
separate dispute that lias halt- 
ed vital oil and gas produc- 
tion. however, showed no sign 
of ending. 

More than 100,000 workers 
from five trade unions re- 
sumed work after employers 
lifted a week-long lockout 
imposed when annual wage 
talks broke down over work- 
ing conditions. 

After 26 hours of talks 
between the Norwegian Feder- 
ation of Trade Unions and the 
Confederation of Norwegian 
Employers, the overage work- 
ing week was reduced from 40 
to 37'/’ hours. 

Employers dropped de- 
mands that the shorter work- 
ing week be linked to 
renegotiation of the minimum 
wage accords and tile two 
sides agreed to a pay increase 
of one crown (about 4Sp) an 
hour for 1986. 

Finance Ministry officials 
said the settlement appeared 
to represent a 9 or 10 per cent 
cost increase, about double 
what the Oslo Government 
says is the maximum for 
holding down inflation. 

Mr Rolf Presihus, the Fi- 


nance Minister, has said that 
the oil-reliant economy is in 
serious trouble because of the 
collapse in world prices and 
that he will make major cuts 
in public spending in the 19S7 
state budget, to be announced 
next month, unless wage lev- 
els are pegged at about 5 per 

cent . . 

Mr Pal Kraby. ihe emp- 
loyers' confederation presi- 
dent who has been enuetzed 
for invoking the first mass 
lockout of Norwegians since 
1931, welcomed the settle- 
ment but said it could weaken 
Norway's competitiveness as 
an exporter. 

Political sources said tnai 
Mr Kaare Willoch. the Prime 
Minister, had forced Mr 
Kraby to return to the negoti- 
ating table but showed no 
signs of being anxious to settle 
the more cosily dispute 

About 670 cooks and clean- 
ers walked out demanding a 
28 per cent pay rise. 

Oil, which was running at 
some 900.000 barrels a day 
before the dispute, is 
Norway's most valuable ex- 
port earner. But the sources 
said that there was no urgency 
to start pumping again while 
world prices were low on a 
glutted market. 


Assassins 
fail in 
Paris raid 

From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

M Guy Brana. vice-presi- 
dent of’ the main French 
employers’ association, sur- 
vived ’ an assassination at- 
tempt yesterday by throwing 
himself to the ground. 

But his chauffeur, waiting in 
the car. was shot in the jaw 
and shoulder when two men 
wearing balaclava helmets, 
opened fire with automatic 
machine guns. 

Police later found some 30 
cartridges on the ground out- 
side his home in Le Vesincu in 
the Yvelines. 

No group has claimed re- 
sponsibility. but police say the 
attack is similar to last year's 
attacks by the extreme-left 
group. Action Directe. against 
General Rene Audran. head of 
arms sales at the Ministry of 
Defence, and M Henri Blan- 
din. Comptroller-General of 
the armed forces. 

General Audran was shot 
dead outside his home, also in 
the Yvelines. on January 25. 
Five months later M Blandin 
escaped unharmed when his 
car was sprayed with bullets at 
the Pone des Temes in Paris. 

M Brana. aged 61. was also 
involved with defence and 
armaments, having worked 
with Thomson, the state- 
owned weapons and electron- 
ics firm. • 


British top 
buyers of 
Bordeaux 

Paris - Exports of Bor- 
deaux wines rose last year by 9 
per cent in rolnme and by 
nearly a third in value, with 
Britain topping the list of the 
foreign buyers (Diana Geddes 
writes). 

Of the 163 million litres of 
Bordeaux wine exported last 
year at a value of 4 billion 
francs (£365 million), Britain 
bongbt 25.7 million litres, 
followed dosely by The Neth- 
erlands. with 25.6 million 
litres, Belgium (25.5 million 
litres), and the US (25.1 
million litres). 

Britain was also France's 
number (me foreign client for 
champagne last year, account- 
ing for 153 million of the 
record 195 million bottles sold 
worldwide. This was a mere 
drop in the ocean, however, 
compared with the 123 million 
bottles bought by France 

In cognac exports, Britain 
had to bow its head once again 
to the US, which bought 31 
million bottles last year; bnt 
Britain preserved its second 
place with 153 million bottles, 
up 6 per cent over the previous 
year. Total cognac exports 
rose to 118 million bottles at a 
value of 53 billion francs. 

There will be no Chateau 
Loudenne 1984 or 1985 after 
the entire stock of the ov 
bourgeois supirieur from the 
Medoc was destroyed in a fire 
last week. 


Challenger 
clue to be 
examined 

Washington — Investigators 
were yesterday preparing to 
get their first look at the main 
suspect in the space shuttle 
Challenger explosion on Janu- 
ary 28 (Mohsin Ali writes). 

The 10 ft by 20 ft piece 
retrieved from 500 ft of water 
about 35 mites off the coast of 
Cape Canaveral has a hole in 
the spot where photographs 
showed hot gases spewing 
from the booster just before 
Challenger exploded.

deputy to former President 
Nimeiryof Sudan, was jailed

Ethiopian Jews to the Jewish 
state, officials said. 

He had already been jailed 
for 54 years for tus rote in the 
transfer. 

Rockets burn 

Tokyo (AFP) - A truck 
carrying what appeared to be 
home-made rocket launchers 
went up in flames hear a US 
air base. No casualties or 
damage were reported. 

Missile fails 

New York (Reuter) — The 
New York Times quoted gov- 
ernment experts as saying a 
Soviet test of its largest new 
land-based missile had foiled 
and perhaps ended in an 
explosion at the launch site.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY APRIL 16 1986 


SPECTRUM 


The cool head of a billion hearts 


The Queen’s role as head of the 
Commonwealth makes her titular 


leader of a billion people across 
40 diverse nations, with many internal 
and external forces vying for 
supremacy. The fact that she stays 
above the fray is a modem political 
miracle, writes Henry Stanhope 



ince coining to the 
throne In 1952 the 
Queen has lost an 
empire but discov- 
ered a new role. For 
that she owes a debt 
to the prime ministers* confer- 
ence of 1949 and to the 
political giants who dominated 
its proceedings - like Attlee. 
Menzies. Lester Pearson and 
perhaps most or all Pandit 
Nehra. 

Nehru came to London with 
a request that his oewly- 
independent republic might 
remain part of the Common- 
wealth despite having ended 
its own allegiance to the 
Crown. 

By agreeing to the Delhi 
application and thereby over- 
turning the so-called Balfour 
Formula, which had estab- 
lished die rales for entry 23 
years before, the assembled 
premiers laid the foundations 
of die modem Commonwealth 
and ensured that King George 
VI. his heirs and successors, 
would preside over an expand- 
ing rather than a diminishing 
organization. 

Today it contains 40 coun- 
tries. Eighteen, including Brit- 
ain. still acknowledge the 
Queen as head of state, 26 are 
republics which do not and the 
other five (Brunei, Lesotho, 
Malaysia. Tonga and Swazi- 
land) have monarchs. 

Not ail were once ruled by 
this country. Radicals, revolu- 
tionaries, democrats, auto- 
crats, capitalists, communists. 
First World or Third World - 
the one thing they have in 
common is membership of this 
curiously British institution. 

The Queen might be said to 
play mother to an extended 
family of around one billion 
people, spread over more than 
10 million square miles of the 
globe. Some 13 per cent of this 
counfry's trade is conducted 
with its members and between 
70 and 75 per cent of Its 
overseas aid finds its way to 
one pan of it or the other. It is 
therefore of material impor- 
tance to Britain. 


But perhaps its greatest 
value lies in its East-West, 
North-South spread at a time 
when Britain is becoming in- 
creasingly enmeshed, militari- 
ly, economically and now 
politically in Emope. It is an 
organization on which the sun 
never sets, providing links to 
parts of the developing world 
which might realize their po- 
tential in the 21st centnry. As 
such it is larger and more 
significant than the French 
equivalent - an association for 
the most part of small, under- 
populated states which France 
is still able to dominate. 

The Queen visits the Com- 
monwealth once or twice a 
year and, by calling on Belize 
last Autumn, has now been to 
all of the 49 states. But the 
most significant event in the 
organization's calendar is the 
Commonwealth heads of gov- 
ernment meeting 

(CHOGOM). 

Relations are not always 
easy. By entering the Europe- 
an Community Britain began 
to steer a course which could 
only complicate its links with 
Commonwealth states. The 
CHOGOMs have historically 
been dominated by one or 
more issues which have found 
the Commonwealth less united 
than its progenitors might 
have hoped. 

The most notable recent 
example was last October's 



responsibil-

General of the Common- 
wealth for more than 10 years,

standing admirers. At Mail-

That the Queen manages to 
remain above all of this is is 
one of the wonders of modern 
politics. But it is important 
that she should. If the Com-

position as head of the Com- 
monwealth would make the 
monarchy seem worth 
preserving.

Although the Queen 
has no political or 
executive powers 
over the Common- 
wealth. she exerts a 
moral influence and 
we have come to depend upon 
her more and more as the 
years have gone by. She played 
a very important part for 
instance at the Common- 
wealth heads of government 
meeting in Zambia in 1979 
when the Lusaka Accord was 
signed. That agreement set up 
the Lancaster House talks on 


the future of Rhodesia a 
month later. 

Her role was played behind 
the scenes and was kept very 
low-key. But she has a way of 
knocking people's heads to- 
gether without appearing to do 
so. And because of the regard 
in which she is heldL, she 
almost seems to defy the 
political leaders to let her 
down. 

That controversial Christ- 
mas television broadcast two 
years ago in which she ap- 
peared with the late Mrs 
Gandhi was also appreciated 
because of the emphasis it 
placed upon world poverty 
and the disparity betwen rich 
and poor - very much a 
Commonwealth theme. 

Then again she is a help on a 
number of issues which, while 
they do not hit the headlines, 
are important in Common- 
wealth terms. A good example 


is the issue of overseas 
students’ fees - which have 
become so high that the 
number of students coming to 
this country's universities 
from other parts of the Com- 
monwealth has been in de- 
cline. It really is a very 
important factor in Common- 
wealth terms, and she senses 
that intuitively in a way that 
ministers don'L 
But it's also a subject on 
which she feels free to have a 
view and to express it She is 
also very conscious of the 
value of the BBC External 
Services. I cannot be specific 
about the way in which she 
has helped. But on issues like 
this she can encourage a more * 
sympathetic attitude, without 
becoming involved in politics. 

A very good example of 
where it all might have gone 
wronjg was the CHOGOM last 
year in Nassau. For the Queen 


to remain above it all on a 
question which 'had divided 
Britain flora the rest of the 
Commonwealth (that of eco- 
nomic sanctions against South 
Africa) might have seemed to 
imply that she was taking 
Britain's side against them. In 
fact that notion did not for one 
moment obtrude. Not for one 
moment did anyone suspect 
that she might enter the arena 
or do anything else but fry to 
bridge the divides which exist- 
ed, in the interests of the 
Commonwealth. 

She is a unifying force of 
great symbolic -value, partly 
because she really does care 
about the Commonwealth and 
partly because she knows so 
much about it. For one thing 
she has been head of the 
Commonwealth now for a 
very long time and has 
emerged as the senior head of 
state. Nobody has occupied 


his or her position longer, 
which means that she has 
grown up alongside a . number 
of other leaders, presidents 
and prime ministers. 

A very good example is 
Julius Nyerere of Tanzania 
'who was a young president 
when she was a young Queen. . 
Another is Lee Kuan Yew 
whom she remembers as a 
young prime minister and is 
now in the latter days of his ' 
career. She has travelled wide- . 
ly round the Commonwealth 
and knows a great deal about 
these- people and their 
countries. 

She knows them by their 
first names. She not only calls - 
Nyerere 'Julius’ for instance 
but would refer to him as such 
when mentioning him to me. 
She always seems to be happy 
in the Commonwealth and 
very relaxed when with us. 
She never seems to regard her ' 


Commonwealth 

ities as a chore- 
Her next big Common- 
wealth enagagement will be 
the Commonwealth Games at 
Edinburgh in July. Then she 
will be with us at the 
CHOGOM in Canada next 
year. She usually arrives a day 
or two before, to undenake an 
official visit to the country 
where it is being hekL Then 
her stay extends into the 
conference itself for several 
more days while she sees all 
the heads of government. 


She is a unifying 
force of great 
. symbolic value 


She does so in a variety of 
ways. There is always a dinner 
and a reception for officials. 
Bui more important than 
anything else she sees each of 
. the beads of government indi- 
vidually. You'll see them get- 
ting up and slipping away in 
the middle of the meeting - 
Mugabe, Kaunda, Seaga. Lee 
Kuan Yew, for a private 
meeting on Britannia or at the 
Governor-General’s house. 

However radical or republi- 
can they may be they all go, 
and I have never known 
anyone who has not highly 
valued the opportunity. It’s 
very friendly, but it's not small 
talk. Sbe always knows the 
political situation in the coun- 
try, the key issues confronting 
it and where the shoe is 
pinching economically. It's a 
very serious discussion and I 
have known young prime 
ministers, meeting her for. the 
first time, emerging amazed 
by the extent of her 
knowledge. 

1 can testify to this myself. I 
have personal access but use it 
with discretion. I would obvi- 
ously go to discuss a forthcom- 
ing CHOGOM with her. but 
might also go along at other 
times. When things are break- 
ing or brewing between her 
private secretary and myself 
there might come a time when 
he might suggest: 'Perhaps it’s 
time you had a chat with the 
Queen.' 

Whatever the subject I al- 
ways find that she has worked 
hard; at her briefs and is 
extremely well informed. Both 
by virtue of her role 
and the qualities she 
brings to it she has 
become a tremen- 
dous asset as a unify- 
ing force.' -

Breaking away with mixed feelings 


Not every former colony welcomes the 
monarchy with open arms. In some, 
adulation has turned to apprehension, 
as our foreign correspondents report 


CANADA' 


The reign of Elizabeth II has 
witnessed the full flowering of 
Canadian independence and 
nationhood. Yet curiously the 
ties that bind the country’ to 
the Crown remain strong To 
an extent this is a tribute to the 
Queen. 

Commonwealth relations 
have been a cornerstone of 
Canadian foreign policy since 
the war. Through the Com- 
monwealth this country has 
attained a degree of influence 
among Third World countries 
that otherwise would never 
have been possible. And the 
monarchy is the visible sym- 
bol that holds the Common- 
wealth together. 

Despite everything howev- 
er. the long-term position of 
the monarch as Canadian 
head of state remains obscure. 
French-speaking Canada feels 
no particular attachment to 
the monarchy. When the 
Queen and the Duke of Edin- 
burgh visit Canada, as they 
did in 1984. tour organizers 
make sure that they avoid 


French-speaking Quebec. 
Thaiway there is no chance of 
embarrassing demonstrations. 

Nor does the approximately 
one third of the population 
whose ancestral ties are nei- 
ther British nor French have 
much attachment to the 
Queen. 

Mr Pierre Trudeau, the 
former prime minister, waged 
a campaign to make the 
governor general — the 
Queen’s representative in . 
Canada - this country's de 
facto head of state. He did this 
by sending him on “state" 
visits to foreign countries and 
by altering some of the instru- 
ments of the vice-regal office. 
In practical terms, the Queen 
is now head of state only when 
she is in Canada. 

At the same lime Canada's 
new constitution, proclaimed 
by the Queen herself in 1982, 
is a guarantee against any 
alterations of the official posi- 
tion of the Crown except by 
unanimous consent of the 
Provinces and of both Houses 
of the Canadian Parliament.

ZIMBABWE 


A sax-by-fonr-foot portrait of 
Che Quran still observes bran 
the wall the boshed confer- 
ences and lobbies outside the 
entrance to Zimbabwe's 
Senate. 

“She's not there because we 
love the royal family, but 
because sbe is the bead of the 
Commonwealth**, said a par- 
liamentary official. 

A similar portrait paced the 
library of the men-only Harare 
Club, refuge of the ca ptain^ of 
Zimbabwe industry, until 
1983. Although no one admits 
it, it is commonly known that 
its removal was to save the 
white establishment from be- 
coming involved in a public 
row over the extent of its 
commitment to the indepen- 
dent state of Zimbabwe. She is 
stiU regarded by left-inclined 
political scientists here and by 
the more zealous among the 
ruling Zaan (PF) party, as a 
symbol of colonial oppression. 

The Queen has not visited 
this country in her official 
capacity, although as princess 
sbe accompanied her lather on 
a Southern African tour in 
1947. Bat she is still the best- 
known bead of state among 
Zimbabwe's people and the 
general popularity of the Roy- 
al Family could be seen from 
the way the Prince of Wales

of Zambians lined the streets 
from the airport into town to 
accord her an emotional wel-

her. decision to ignore the 
anxieties of her advisers.

GRENADA 


The Queen is decidedly less 
popular in the Caribbean is- 
land of Grenada than Presi- 
dent Reagan, who has become 
something of a folk hero. 

The historic identity with 
Britain changed abruptly with 
the American invasion, which 
Grenadians prefer to call a 
"liberation", in October 1983. 
The intervention by the USA 
and several other Caribbean 
states, to restore democracy 
after one Marxist regime bad 
displaced another in a violent 
coup on Grenada, was the 
dominating issue at that year's 


Commonwealth Heads of 
Government Meeting, at Del- 
hi. Britain's coolness towards 
the operation however, caused 
immediate anger, which has 
since given way to a curious 
incomprehension and. in 
some, a lingering resentment 
towards Britain. 

Almost everybody feels that 
the United States should now 
be the the guiding force for the 
future, and that the British 
connection is. in reality, all 
but over. Late last year the 
Queen visited the Spice Island 
aboard Britannia and opened 
the newly refurbished parlia- 
ment building, which had 
degenerated into Utile more 
than a store room during the 
years of autocracy. 

Britain symbolically paid 
for the restoration. And the 
pomp and ceremony was all 
extremely British. But the 
Queen was given what at best 
can be described as a subdued 
welcome. Grenadians were 
clearly demonstrating that 
they now feel firmly in the 
American sphere of influeence 
wherein lies the promise of 
bountiful dollars and. most of 
all. liberation from the huge 
unemployment brought upon 
them by incompetent and 
corrupt governments.

the blues 


Meal-time hattw 
and sleepless 
nights need not 




be permanen t 
features of 


areas 


bringing up baby. 

writes Lee RodweH 

If vou were to ask parents which 
caused ihera most concern in 
bnngmg up their children I confident- 
ly predict that two things would head 
the list: sleeping and eating. 

T speak as the mother of a 22-mdnth 
old son who still wakes me regularly at 
least once in the small boms. My four 
and a half year old daughter, on the 

other hand, has slept well from the age 
of six wccksL BW she has been kntwS 

to sit at the table for an hour, taking 
mouse-sized mouthfuls of a meal she 
not only liked the week before but 
specifically requested again. 

Sleeping and eating problems can 
crave parents to the end of their tethers 
partly because they have one thing in 
common; by and large it is not the 
children who have problems over 
seeping and eating habits, it is their 
parents. 

When my son's bowls drag me from 
my bed three times in as many hours, 
he is still foil of beans in the morning. J 
am the one wandering round like a 
zombie. When my daughter turns her 
nose up at my home-cooked, additive- 
free. vitamin-rich and fibre-fun offer- 
ings. says she's not hungry and then 
asks fora biscuit half an hour later, she 
doesn't worry about having a healthy 
diet or ruining her teeth - 1 da 

Countless parents like myself, who 
know the worry, frustration and anger 
often caused by sleepless nights or 
meal-time . battles, will, no doubt, 
welcome the publication this month of 
two books which' offer reassurance and 
constructive advice on both eating and 
sleeping difficulties. 

Dr Richard Fetter set up the Centre 
for Paediatric Sleep Disorders at the 
Children's Hospital in Boston in 1979. 
In his book, confidently titled Solve 
Your Child's Sleep Problems , be says: 
“The most common problem, for 
example, sleeplessness in young chil- 
dren. has proved the easiest to treat: 
even an infant or toddler who has 
never slept through the night can begin 
doing so within a few days with the 
right assistance from parents**. 

Although Eh* Faber's book deals 
with a variety of problems — .from ' 
babies who wake at the crack of dawn 
ready to start the day. ip teenier* who 
don't fell asleep-umifthe early hours of 
the morning and then can't get up for 
school — h is his assertion that parents 
or young children need no longer face 
night after night of broken slap that 
seems the most revolutionary. 

Most of the other books I have read 
on the subject offer a number of 
possible solutions to parents' desper- 
ate for a good night’s sleep: offering 
cuddlies, reducing noise from outride, 
providing a nighiiight, malting sure 
the child doesn't get too hot or too 
cold. Yet most of them also add the 
rider that it is quite likely that nothing 
will work and you will just have to 
hope the child grows out of the habit of 
disturbing you at night. 

Dr Ferber. on the other hand, takes 
a more positive approach- He says: 
“Once you can identify your child's 
sleep disorder you can work out a way 
of correcting it. You don’t have to 
wait." , . . 

My son has got used to my going m 
to him. offering a drink and a cuddle 



and tucking him up again. Those are 
the conditions be associates with 
gening back to sleep in die night — and 
to solve the problem, says Dr Berber, I 
have to change his sleep associations. 

Dr Berber's way of doing this is a 
variation of the 'leave them to ay’ 
theory. The system worts like this: 
when the child starts to cry you don't 
go in at once, but wait, say two 
minutes. Then you go to them, but you 
do not pick them up. offer, a drink or 
do apy of the things you would 
normally da~You leave (whether they 
arestiU crying or noL and even if they 
cry louder once.you shut the door). 

‘Core is harder on the 
' J the parents than it 
is on the child’ 


You wait' -a. Tittle longer Before 
returning if the crying continues, say 
five minutes more. Then you repeat 
the brief vish. This time you wait for 
iOmimrtes before going back. You 
decide oh the maximum time you can 
stand to leave them crying without 
going m — perhaps 15 minutes — and 
you continue to return at 15-minute 
intervals until the child fells asleep. If 
the crying stops or if it is only mild 
. wimpering you don’t go in. 

You repeat this pattern the follow- 
ing night, but you increase the 
intervals between visits by. say, five 
minutes^ It may sound easy, but any 
parents who have Iain rigid- in bed 
listening to howls echoing round the 
house will tel! you h is not. Even Dr 
Ferber admits that h can be hard — but 
be insists it is harder on the parents 
than the child. 

“Any time you have to listen to your 
child cry it is difficult — if it wasn't 
there would be no reason for children 
to cry. You do have to go against 


instinct a little bit. You see. if you go 
to your child and rode him or give him 
a drink it does seem as if you are 
meeting a need. But once you under- 
stand you are teaching him to asso- 
ciate these things with going bade to 
sleep, then there is some rationale 
behind not doing (hem. You are not 
just leaving them to cry — you are 
letting them learn they can go back to 
sleep on their own**. 

Small children who wake up in the 
night may get enough sleep overall for 
their needs but it is the parents who 
riiffer the toll of broken nights. But Dr 
Ferber also believes that parents can't 
rely on a child — particularly during 
the toddler years — to get aU the sleep it 
needs. “I know parents whose toddlers 
sleep only eight hours at night and 
they say they are fine during the day. 

“But rd be willing to wager that you 
could get that sleep up to 10 hours at 
night, plus a nap during the day, and 
you’d see a real change in personality 
to a much happier child who had far 
fewer tantrums". 

Not everyone welcomes Dr Faber’s 
methods. Dr David Haslam, for 
instance, a family doctor who has 
himself written a book. Sleepless 
Children, is chary of any system that 
seems to offer guarantees of success. 
He says: "If parents set out upon some 
particular method or other which 
doesn't work for them, then they are 
likely to feel failures on top of 
everything else." 

Dr Haslam’s new book. Eal It (Jp!, A 
Parent 's Guide to Eating Problems 
does not promise to turn faddy eaters 
into trenchermen overnight. But the 
information and advice he gives 
should help take the misery out of 
mealtimes. 

He says: "A lot of parents wony that 
their child 'won't eat a thing’. But if 
you have a healthy child who is 
growing normally it can't be fresh air 
that is doing it" 


Dr Haslam is well aware that 
modem parents worry whether their 
children eat the right kind of food. His 
advice is to throw out the charts that 
list essential vitamins, minerals and so 
on. stop worrying about whether you 
are providing enough protein, fet and 
carbohydrate and simply offers varied 
diet 

He says: "If anything, it is not a 
question of children not gening 
enough of the essentials, it is of them 
getting 100 much of other things — 
things like fel. sugar and salt". 

At the same time be suggests taking 
a broad viewpoint “The majority of 
children — even when going through 
their faddy phases - still get enough of 
the essential foodstuffs. Certainly if 
you look at an individual day, then 
many children will not get their 
average daily requirements of many 
nutriems. But — and this point is 
essential — taken over a period of 
time, what a child eats and what he 
needs are actually remarkably 
simitar." Bui what about the child who 
seems happy to snack on crisps or 
biscuits, but throws a paddy at the 
very idea of trying a mouthful of 
greens or chicken? Dr Haslam suggests 
that parents should work out what 
they are most worried about — is it 
nutrition, or a question of discipline, 
or. perhaps, are they upset by the fact 
that the child is refusing a meal 
prepared with love. Le. rejecting them? 

He says: “I don't feel it is practical 
to tan sweets and biscuits, but you can 
limit the supply. Don't buy foods you 
don't want your children to eat It's 
easier to say T haven't got any' than 
'No. you can't have any*.” 

He suggests keeping a food diary, 
which will not only put your mind at 
rest by showing how much you child 
actually cats, but will also show you 
when he is hungry and when there are 
problems. You can then think about 
the timing of meals and try to work out 
a regular routine to keep to. 

He also suggests offering smaller 
helpings. “Children's appetites vary 
from age to age. You might expea a 
toddler to eat much more than a 
younger child, but the two to three 
year olds naturally eat less, so you 
should be giving them smaller not 
larger helpings. If they want more they 
can always ask for it. 

“Remember that children lend to 
eal in haphazard ways — they are not 
so likely as adults to want three square 
meals a day. Toddlers in particular are 


‘Simple advice is 
the hardest for 
parents to heed’ 


better having small meals with snacks 
in between - particularly if the snack 
is reasonably nutritious and not too 
filling. Problems arise if the snack is 
filling but not nutritious as the next 
meal will be refused as the child feels 
full." 

Apart from specific tips (don’t let 
your child fill up with orange juice, let 
him dip his bread in his custard if he 
wants to) Dr Haslam 's main advice 
boils down to two things: don't nag 
and don’t worry. Simple? Of course it 
is. But. as any parent knows, it is the 
simplest advice that is often the 
hardest to follow.

Safe but stylish: designer 
homes for old hands 


Most of Britain’s 
pensioners live 
in homes built 


for families but 


fraught with risks 


for the old, says 


Suzanne Greaves 


T he apparently straight- 
forward task of con- 
vening her mother's 
fiat into a home more suit- 
able io the needs of an active 
but not so agile elderly wom- 
an. revealed for Helen 
Hamlyn the safety plight of 
Britain’s 10 million pension- 
ers — 95 per cent of whom 
live in homes designed for 
families but fraught with 
hazards for older occupants. 

As the wife of Paul 
Hamlyn, a director of News 
International (publishers of 
The Times) and publisher of 
Octopus Books, it might have 
been templing for Mrs 
Hamlyn to install a compan- 
ion or nurse and then, free 
from worry for her mother's 
safety, pursue her busy life as 
interior designer and hostess 
in the three Hamlyn homes. 

Instead, angered by the 
lack of concern shown by 
manufacturers and shopkeep- 
ers for the needs of one-fifth 
of the population, she 
scoured Europe and the Unit- 
ed States for household appli- 
ances and more comfortable 
furniture, that would enable 
her mother, octogenarian 
Mrs Constance Jones, to 
remain independent 
Her shopping snowballed 
as friends with parents living 
alone came to her for advice. 
They wanted to know where 
to find clothes with easy 
fastenings: asked about easi- 
ly-gripped gardening tools 
and wanted Mrs Hamlyn to 
design kitchen and bathroom 
modifications. 

If friends were impressed 
with Helen Hamlyn’s crusad- 
ing concern and growing 
knowledge, so was her hus- 
band. Instead of whisking her 
away for a holiday of a 
lifetime on her 50th birthday 
recently, he presented her 
with an elaborate scroll. 

On it were written the 
terms of The Helen Hamlyn 
Foundation, a tax-exempt 
charity he had endowed for 
the development of t he physi- 
cal and social environment in 
which older people could lead 
full and useful lives. 

“It was the most amazing 
present”, says Mrs Hamlyn. 
“Shopping with my mother 
fora non-slip bath, better and 
nicely designed bathroom 
safety rails, and buying a 
cooker with large dials and 
easily-turned knobs revealed 
an appalling lack of products. 
Many that were available 
looked ugly. Just because you 
happen to be a certain age. 
why should you have to put 
up with purely functional 
products? 

“Clothes were another 
problem: awkward zips and 
hooks made it impossible for 



Age aid: Mrs Hamlyn and her mother 


someone on their own to 
fasten a dress. At 80. my 
mother was popping along to 
the local pool for diving 
lessons and motoring around 
London, so she needed no 
nursing care. But she did 
need to live in an environ- 
ment free of slippery flooring 
or hazards which result in a 
broken hip or twisted ankle.” 

Like anyone else with a 
problem. Mrs Hamlyn turned 
to friends for help. In her case 
they happened to be influen- 
tial people: international com- 
pany executives, publishers, 
architects — and Sir Terence 
Conran, the chairman of 
Molhcrcare/Habiiat Anxious 
to help and doubtless im- 
pressed that retired people 
currently command a com- 
bined disposable income ap- 
proaching £1.000 million. Sir 
Terence agreed to head the 
judges in a design competition 
organized by The Helen

ation with Age Concern, the

T here were 150 entries, 
all design products to 
help elderly people stay 
safe at home, and 16 have 
been commissioned for fur- 
ther development. Next 
month the winning project

toria & Albert Museum. 

Dr Eric Midwinter, direc- 
tor of the Centre for Policy on 
Ageing, agrees with Helen 
Hamlyn that specialist prod- 
ucts for i he older generation 


are stark and scarce. He 
would like to see well-de- 
signed goods advertised on 
television, pitched to the 
needs of a generation which 
spends some £20 billion a 
year. 

S itting in the calm interi- 
or of the Hamlyn's 
Bau ha us-designed 
home, the world of the hard- 
up. immobile pensioner 
seems far away. But strewn 
over the coffee table are plans 
for a flexible kitchen with 
adjustable shelves and work- 
ing surfaces to accommodate 
even wheelchair-bound occu- 
pants. Mrs Hamlyn hopes 
this kitchen will form the 
basis of a core of specially- 
designed rooms that can be 
used by architects of purpose- 
built flats for elderly people. 

“Much of the detail has 
been road-tested by potential 
users. It’s no good designing 
something which a younger 
person may believe is ideal 
and then discovering it is 
totally inappropriate for the 
age group it is meant for" 
Mrs Hamlyn explains . 

British Rail arc delighted 
with the success of their 
Senior Citizen Rail Cards and 
Saga Holidays, specialists in 
travel for the elderly, have no 
shortage of lakers. Small 
wonder that Helen Hamlyn is 
convinced wc arc at the 
threshold of a new commer- 
cial era of pensioner power.

Milk of human unkindness 


From F. M. M. Steiner. 
Reform Club. Pall Mail , 
London SW}. 

Penny Perrick has for once not 
done her homework (Monday 
Page, April 7). Though the 
proportion of milk delivered to 
the doorstep is cteariy faffing, 
and I do not suppose that the 
system can last Cor ever, far 
more than 50 per cent of the 
country's mOk fe still defivered 
by those mUkmea whom Ms 
Perrick believes to be extinct. 
In my north London suburb 
they deliver foe nrilk — ia 
returnable glass bottles at 
that -just as much as in my 
wife's rmal Midlands vflbgge. 

Brt Ms PerrickYmistake « 
more fundamental, m that she 
dearly assumes that all wom- 
en have a lifestyle similar to 
ha own. There are still wanes 
in curias — I see then an the 
bns almost every day. There 
are stfll women whom PP 
would regard as “non- 
working" in foe sense . that 
they are not gainfully em- 
ployed outside the household, 
and they make up well over 46 
pa cent ef all married women. 

Most women, and most men 
I hasten to add, do set have 
careers but hare jobs aid 
though they may in d ee d he 
short of ttee for baking, many 
of Aon stiff manage to do 
some. It may be nigg li ng in 
point out, hr reply to whit my 
hare been intended as n fight- 
hearted cotaran, that foe pro- 
portion of pe nsioners and 
other retired women is rising 
sharply and fort they at least 
are more concerned with sav- 
ing money than time. 

What I am really trying to 
say is foal your eotanmist is no 
doubt right in emp lan ing 
that advertisements same-

that women in foe prefesstons

TALKBACK 


Nostalgia milked 



From MrG. A. Goodeve. 
Outwood Common Road, 
Bittericay. Essex. 

Having read many columns by 
Penny Perrick, I am familiar 
with her individual style and 
views. I cannot, however, allow 
her views go un chall enged. 

Contrary to ha statement 
(not, apparently, ha opinion), 
I lire in a town faD of ordinary 
people, where milk is delivered 
to tie doorstep la bottles, fish 
sold front the fishmonger's 
dab, and cakes are made in 
thousands of kitchens. I far- 
ther believe that there are 
many, many towns in this land 
where life is siaular, where life 
b real and far from nostalgic. 

Her s tatements , therefore! 
to be n ar row- min ded 


Realistic advice 

From Susan Rudge. 

Church View Road, Pitney. 
Oxfordshire. 

As the btissfoDy happy poten- 
tial adopters of a one-year-old- 
baby boy we thank you fa 
year recent article cm the 
plight of the infertile 
(W edne sday Page, April 9). 
Some very valuable points 
were hi g hli g hted. It was Stat- 
ed, quite correctly, that foe 
investigations and treatment 
are a lengthy procedure; that 
massy of. foe couples aff ect e d 
are in their urid-30s and that 
onjy one in three are. success- 
fully treated. 


Fa these reasons, coupled 
with the shortage of children 
available for adoption, we 
respectfully suggest that infer- 
tility clinks give a realistic 
appraisal to couples of the 
dwwPM of a successful preg- 
nancy ever occurring. 

It is so very easy to forfeit 
the chance of adoption while 
chasing a biological 
uncertainty. 

The psychological effects of 
infertility can be overwhelm- 
ing and yet in our experience 
(we were treated privately for 
five years) there were no 
opportunities for counselling 
or even discussion groups. 

Outrageous claim 

From Sarah Merrill. 
Nenlcstone. NUtty Abbey. 
Southampton. 

] feel ns strong!)' » Heather 
Kirby (Friday Page, April 4) 
that it is neglige nee for anyone 
to leave young children alone 
ina house. 

But I was astonished and 
bemnsed by the article, which 
1 found outrageous in its 
charges and very contradic- 
tory. How coaM she hare 
chosen to quote Jill Knight's 
unfounded and nuproven 
churn: “A woman who is 
prepared to knock a kid off 
before it is horn is Uahie nor to 
bother that much about one 
when it is", to back np her 
argument? 

Are they really claiming 
that all women who have 
abortions are potential child 
negketors. Where is the 
proof? 

At the same time, bow could 
Heather Kirby possibly feel 
sympathy for those parents 
who cannot afford babysitters 
and so, if they want an evening 
out, use their only option and 
take a risk? 

Is it then not negligence if 
you are poor to leave your 
children alone in the bonse — 
but potential negligence to 
have an abortion?

Jenkin II 

Undaunted by Patrick Jenkin’s 
experience at the hands of the 
prime minister, his son Bernard 
presses on with his political career. 
Already chairman of Matching 
parish council in Essex, he is now 
standing for councillor in Tower 
Hamlets, cast London, where Iasi 
time the Tory limped home with 
less than 3 per cent of the vote. 
And it docs not stop there. In the 
week Patrick Jenkin was sacked as 
Environment Secretary. Bernard 
was successfully interviewed by 
Central Office to join the ap- 
proved candidate list. He now 
hopes to find a scat before the next 
election. “My father's experience 
has made me more determined." 
he says. 

Chain reaction 

Central TV was delighted when its 
him crew was called out to report a 
successful victim-support scheme 
in Preston. Proud policemen led 
them to the home of an elderly 
woman who had been burgled but 
was now an exemplary pupil of 
their lessons on home security. 
Unfortunately, she had learnt too 
well: despite every blandishment 
shouted through the letter-box, 
she refused to open up. “The 
police have told me not too," she 
said sternly.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY APRIL 16 1986 


Bombing is not the answer 

by David Owen 


On January Q. 1952, at the 
conclusion of iheir conversation 
in Washington. President Truman 
and Prime Minister Winston 
Churchill issued a communique 
saying that the use of US bases in 
the UK "in an emergency would 
be a matter for joint decision by 

HM Government and the LIS 
Government in the light of the 
circumstances prevailing at the 
lime". 

It is these two words “joint 
decision" which will now haunt 
Mrs Thatcher as she seeks to 
justify her decision to agree to the 
deployment of American aircraft 
from the three air bases in the 
United Kingdom to bomb targets 
in Libya. For the implications also 
go to the root of the arguments 
about US nuclear bases in the UK 
and the case for “dual key" control 
oferuise missiles. 

For joint decision to mean 
anything, it must mean that Mis 
Thatcher, with the help of expert 
advice, satisfied herself first on the 
legality of the American action, 
secondly on the technical feasibil- 
ity. and thirdly on the political 
advisability of the action. 

On the evidence so far avail- 
able. Mrs Thatcher was unwise to 
give her agreement on all three 
counts. FirsL there is considerable 
doubt whether the US was acting 
within both the spirit and the 
letter of international law. There 
has been far too much talk from 
President Reagan and others of 
retaliation, reprisal and revenge 
for this action to be convincingly 
described as one of self-defence 
under Article 51 of the UN 
Charter 

Even to begin to recover lost 
ground with world opinion on the 
legality of the action under the UN 
Charter, the Americans and the 
British must now go to the 
Security Council and lay before it 
as much of the intelligence ev- 
idence as they dare: evidence that 
not only specifically links Libya 
with the bombing of the Berlin 
disco, but more importantly cov- 
ers the detail of future threats on 
which a case for self-defence had 
to rest. 

The intelligence community 
will argue — as it did to President 
Kennedy at the lime of the Cuban 
missile crisis in 1962 - that noth- 


ing should be revealed. Kennedy- 
ignored much of that caution and 
did present, in modified form, the 
satellite photographs showing the 
missiles on site in Cuba. 

At that time, when little was 
known about satellite photog- 
raphy, he did risk gi ving the Soviet 
Union valuable information 
about US intelligence capabilities, 
but it transformed world altitudes 
to the US decision to impose a 
quarantine. That naval quarantine 
stopped prohibited material being 
transported to Cuba and was 
justified as preventive force in 


keeping with Article 2 (4) of the 
United Nations Charter. 

Means must be found of reveal- 
ing more about Colonel Gadaffi's 
intentions, otherwise the world 
will conclude that there is no 
evidence and. that the Americans 
have merely used the possibility of 
his imen Lions to justify their air 
strikes. Even so. it will be hard to 
convince even European opinion 
that air strikes at night on a city 
like Tripoli could do anything 
other than risk civilian lives. It 
appears to many to be a wholly 
disproportionate use of force. 



There were alternatives. Eco- 
nomic sanctions were loo lightly 
dismissed when Reagan requested 
European co-operation. A ban on 
air flights in and out of Libya 
would have been a reasonable 
sanction. This could have been 
reinforced by a total quarantine, 
initially involving military ma- 
terial and then possibly going on 
to include oiL But if air attacks 
had to be undertaken, why not hit 
unpopulated oil jetties and thus 
the Libyan economy? 

■ in the anarchic world in which 
we live, where states practise 
terrorism, we have to develop far 
more sophisticated pressures to 
make such states abide by inter- 
national law. We wiH never do this 
if the one democratic superpower 
acts with scant regard for that law. 

The US action over the Gulf of 
Sine was justified under inter- 
national law. in hijacking hijack- 
ers and forcing down an Egyptian 
airliner, it acted outside the law — 
as it has once again. Why else 
have both America and Britain 
always condemned such air at- 
tacks when practised by Israel? 

Even if the intelligence is re- 
vealed and it gives a better 
justification for the bombing un- 
der -the UN Charter than appears 
at present, we are still left to 
question whether it will achieve its 
political objective. Here, Ido not 
give as much credence as others 
have to the view that ft will 
buttress Libya in the Arab world. 
There has always been a tendency 
to indulge in public double-speak 
by- Arab countries which privately 
want Colonel Gadaffi's terrorist 
activities checked. 

But Gadaffi is not mad. Rather, 
he is a dedicated revolutionary 
who is unlikely to stop exporting 
terrorism as a result of a few 
bombing raids. Presumably Rea- 
gan does not intend to persist 
week after week. Libya needs to 
feefstcady and relentless pressure, 
stretching the. country militarily, 
weakening -ft economically and 
undermining it politically. Such a 
strategy' may not have the glamour 
of;aft air strike, but it is the only 
hope of restraining a regime that is 
rapidly moving out of control. 


Mary Dejevsky explains the inhibitions behind the Soviet rhetoric 


Why Moscow 
doeslittle 
for Gadaffi 


"A barbarous attack" and "a new 
bloody crime" was how the Soviet 
news agency Tass first described 
the US raids on Libya yesterday 
morning. It was a' predictable 
reaction to an event that Moscow 
had been predicting for a month, 
and the. pitch of Soviet indigna- 
tion is likely to rise as the week 
goes on. But however shrill the 
rhetoric, it is unlikely to be 
translated into military action in 
suppon of Libya 

In the .first place, the US 
administration — however ac- 
curate its intelligence, however 
detailed its studies of Soviet 
behaviour in the past - would 
probably not have undertaken the 
attack without at least a tacit 
assurance from Moscow that there 
would be no Soviet military 
response. The mechanisms for 
obtaining such an assurance are 
the US-Soviet hotline and dip- 
lomatic contacts. 

So when, with the military 
operation already under way. the 
US Secretary of Slate. George 
Shultz, called in the Soviet charge 
d'affaires to explain that the attack 
was directed exclusively against 
terrorists and not against the 
Soviet Union, this would have 
been more of a diplomatic cour- 
tesy than anylhing else. But even if 
the United States had not formally 
ascertained the Soviet Union's 
probable response, it could have 
calculated that the odds on Mos- 
cow choosing to intervene mili- 
tarily on Libya's behalf were long 
indeed. 

Since the Cuban missile crisis 
more than 20 years ago. Moscow 
has shown a marked reluctance to 
engage directly in military opera- 
tions which could lead to conflict 
with the United States. A 
combination of belligerent anti- 
American rhetoric and Kremlin 
inscrutability has given the im- 
pression that Moscow is just 
biding its lime before attacking US 
interests. In practice, threats have 
not been followed through: not in 
Grenada, not in Central .America. 


and especially not in the Middle 
EasL 

The Soviet Union has at- 
tempted to maintain a discreet 
neutrality in the Gulf War. despite 
having a friendship treaty with 
Iraq which could oblige it to offer 
military backing. Moscow has sold 
Iraq arms, so it is believed, for oil. 
Bui it has continued to report the 
war from both sides, to emphasize 
its destructive effects and to call 
for a negotiated settlement. 

Similarly in the case of Syria, 
with which Moscow also has a 
friendship treaty. When Israel 
invaded Lebanon, first knocking 
out Syria's Soviet-made missiles, 
the Soviet Union declined to come 
to its immediate aid. Syria's 
missiles were subsequently re- 
placed and upgraded: more mili- 
tary advisers were sent in from 
Moscow. But the fact remained 
that when Syria most needed it, 
Soviet assistance was not forth- 
coming. 

Moscow’s unwillingness to do 
anything that might upset the 
current uneasy peace in the Mid- 
dle East may be one factor in its 
likely response - or lack of it — to 
the US raids on Libya. Another 
faaor. just as compelling, is the 
Soviet leadership's own misgiv- 
ings about Colonel Gadaffi. 

From a distance, the Libyan 
leader is a beneficiary of all the 
hyperbolic praise the Soviet media 
can bestow. The Soviet Union is 
Libya's main arms supplier — to 
the tune of about S 1 5 billion — 
and there are an estimated 5.000 
Soviet military advisers stationed 


there. Relations between the two 
countries give every impression of 
cordiality. Beneath the surface, 
however, there are tensions 

Libya under Gadaffi has consis- 
tently taken the part of Islamic 
fundamentalism - in Iran, Syria 
or Egypt - and this is something 
Moscow cannot endorse, for ideo- 
logical and domestic political 
reasons. Moscow has also tended 
to blame Libya for divisions in the 
Arab worid 

Above aJL though. Moscow 
finds it unpalatable to give overt 
support to a leader who so openly 
espouses terrorism. This was al- 
ways difficult for Moscow because 
of the risk that its international 
reputation would become sullied 
by association with terrorists and 
their backers. But it became 
doubly difficult last year, when 
Soviet citizens were taken hostage 
in Lebanon, and the Soviet Union 
thus fell victim to Middle East 
terrorism for the first time. 

The differences between Mos- 
cow and Libya emerge periodi- 
cally in the vexed but as yet 
hypothetical question of a Soviet- 
Libyan friendship treaty. The 
possibility of such a treaty was 
first mooted, apparently by the 
Russians, three years ago. But 
despite Libyan prompting, no 
treaty has yet been signed.. 
Disagreement over the treaty was 
believed to be behind a diplomatic 
incident during Gadaffi's last visit 
to Moscow. Iasi October, when he 
failed to turn up for his farewell 
banquet. He claimed his driver 
had been given the wrong address. 


The lack of a friendship treaty 
makes it easier for Moscow now to 
leave Libya to the mercy of US 
warplanes' without losing fece. 
.And the Soviet leadership will 
doubtless be grateful that no treaty 
.- wascoriclpdedlBuLthereare other 
' reasons why the ArneriCah action 
may not entirely displease Mikhail 
Gorbachov 

^Tfie attack maybe helpful to the' 
Soviet leadership as it seeks to 
formulate its long-term policy 
towards the United States. Righ- 
teous indignation in Moscow 
could provide a pretext for at least 
delaying the planned Soviet-US 
summit meeting in Washington, if 
not abandoning ft altogether. 

At the same time, the fact that 
the United Stales decided to use 
direct military action against 
Libya will confirm in the Soviet 
Union the image of President 
Reagan as a trigger-happy cowboy ; 
.who does -not flinch at attacking 
civilian targets. This is the image i 
continually stressed by the Soviet 
media,- but Reagan’s Jive appear- 
ance on Soviet television immedi- 
ately after the Geneva summit 
meeting did much to dilute it The 
raids on Libya will have restored 
his "Ram bo" persona more effec- 
tively than anything the Soviet 
media could produce. 

But these are secondary bene- 
fits. Assuming the Soviet Union 
takes no direct action in response 
to the US raids. Moscow is left 
giving an impression of weakness 
which is unlikely to please its 
allies. In an attempt to counter 
this, Soviet representatives are 
likely to press the case against the 
United States; at every possible 
international forum. 

They are also likely to back any 
united action that may be taken by 
the Arab. League. This would’have 
an added advantage for Moscow 
in view of the present Soviet 
Ieaderships-interest in improving 
relations with the moderate Arab 
states. But this is a small return for 
the Soviet Union's considerable 
outlay in. Libya. 


Who will judge the judges to be? 


Pressure is mounting for reform of 
the method of appointing judges. 
The plan — to change an informal 
and rather secret system of 
appointments by the civil servants 
of the Lord Chancellor’s Depart- 
ment and make it more open and 
accountable — does not come 
from the consumer lobby, or 
radical pressure groups, but from 
the Bar of England and Wales. 

There is a growing view among 
barristers that, as judges bear 
more cases with political implica- 
tions, the link between the ju- 
diciary and the government 
through the office of the Lord 
Chancellor is undesirably close. 
There has also been concern for 
some lime that the present system 
is ill-matched to new demands, 
both in society and the profession. 
As one barrister put it. “The 
system has produced high-quality 
judges, and the officials arc ex- 
tremely conscientious in their job 
of consulting on the suitability of 
judicial appointments. But it is an 
informal system leading to what is 
essentially personal patronage". 

Di scon lent surfaced last sum- 
mer when a radical group of 
barristers secured seats on the Bar 
Council by promising reform in a 
number of areas concerning the 
profession. One complaint was 


that leaders of the Bar. looking to 
their own careers, had been 
unwilling to step out of line and 
raise the issue of judicial appoint- 
ments on behalf of the rank and 
file. 

Even those selected by the 
system to be judges are bound by 
similar constraints if they nurture 
hopes of higher office. Judge 
Pickles, a Northern circuit judge, 
maintains that unless be and his 
colleagues are prepared to relin- 
quish any hope of promotion, they 
cannot speak ouL Lord Hailsham. 
the Lord Chancellor, said in a 
recent speech that two judges of 
the highest ability and reputation 
had had their promotion blocked 
because of the “blindest political 
prejudice". 

The system’s secrecy fosters 
such fears. It also runs contrary to 
the trend for more openness in 
both government and the pro- 
fessions. Worse, it creates unease 
and suspicion when barristers do 
not seem to progress as they 
should. 

There are other objections: first, 
that the system depends on the 
expertise of the government of- 
ficials who lake soundings on 
suitability for the bench — an 
expertise which may now be high. 


but cannot be guaranteed in the 
future. Secondly, the system is 
informal, dating from ihe days 
when the pool of candidates was 
small. The profession has grown 
rapidly, and with solicitors now 
eligible for the circuit bench the 
job of monitoring performance is 
much more onerous. 

Talks between Lord Hailsham 
and the Common Law Bar Associ- 
ation last year prompted a land- 
mark speech by the Lord 
Chancellor ih which he described 
how judges are chosen from the 
practising Bar (together with solic- 
itors for the circuit bench) after 
wide consultation between the 
offirials and leaders of the pro- 
fession. The final decision rests 
with either the Lord Chancellor 
or — for Court of Appeal and 
House of Lords appointments — 
the Queen. 

Many barristers now want re- 
form to go further. The Bar 
Council is likely to set up a 
working party to report on the 
options, one of which is certain to 
be the creation of a committee of 
lawyers — including the Lord 
Chief Justice, the Attorney Gen- 
eral. the chairman of the Bar and 
the president of the Law Society — 
which would take over the job of 
recommendation from the civil 


sen-ants. Some ait bound to want 
lay committee members, arguing 
that the test of accountability may 
not be satisfied by lawyers alone. 
The final decisions would remain 
with the Lord Chancellor and the 
Queen. 

Coming at the present time, the 
proposals could make for further 
friction between the Bar and the 
Lord Chancellor's Department, 
where relations are already 
strained because of the Bar’s 
successful court action over legal 
aid fees. The Bar has taken on 
Lord Hailsham as a member of the 
government; but as he is also the 
chief of their profession he shares 
many of their concerns. 

Many are happy for him to 
remain part of the appointments 
system. But there have always 
been critics of this dose connec- 
tion with government who want 
the Lord Chancellor's responsibil- 
ity for the judiciary to be separate 
from its administration. Now, 
with more and more cases 
challenging government derisions 
coming before the courts, those 
criticisms are gaining strength.

Needed: a real 
rule of law 


The American air attack upon 
Libyan territory. has brought into 
sharp relief the inadequacy of the 
machinery by which practical 
effect may be given to inter- 
national law. 

Both the United States and 
Libya ace members of the United 
Nations, and have accepted the 
obligations contained in its Char- 
ter. Article 2 provides that all 
members shall refrain in their 
international relations from the 
threat or use of feree against the 
territorial integrity or political 
independence of any state, or in 
any other manner inconsistent 
with ihe purposes of the United 
Nations. 

The American attack was not 
directed against the political in- 
dependence of Libya but was 
intended to punish its government 
for involvement in international 
terrorism and to deter it from such 
involvement in the future. How- 
ever, there is little doubt that force 
was used against the territorial 
integrity of Libya. 

Nevertheless Article 51 pro- 
vides that nothing in the present 
Charter shall impair the inherent 
right of individual or collective self 
defence if an armed attack occurs 
against a member of -the United 
Nations, until the Security Council 
has taken the measures necessary 
to maintain international peace 
and security. 

I take the view that m the 
modern worid an armed attack 
against the aircraft and citizens of 
a state constitutes an armed attack 
upon the. state: and further, that 
the doctrine of self-defence applies 
in relation to both actual and 
reasonably-anticipated attacks. 

The inherent right of self- 
defence was defined in 1837 in the 
case of the steamer Caroline. She 
was being used to transport men 
and equipment across the Niagara 
River from the United States in 
support of a rebellion in Canada. 
There was a skirmish in which 
some Americans were killed and 
the vessel was sent to its destruc- 
tion over the fells. The govern- 
ment of Canada claimed it was 
exercising its right of self-defence. 

The US Secretary of State, 
Daniel Webster, replied with the 
following definition of that right, 
which has since become generally 
accepted: There must be a neces- 
sity of self defence, instant, 
overwhelming, leaving no choice of 
means and no moment for delib- 
eration. Further, ihe act justified 
by the necessity of seffdfjence 
must be limited by that necessity 
and kept clearly within iL 

(f it .be- assumed that Libyan 
complicity in armed attacks, 
whether actual or anticipated, can 
be proved, Libya - is dearly in * 
violation of international law, but 
it is doubtful on the known facts 
whether the American air raid 
satisfies either the first or the 
second limb of that definition, and 


its legally nuist therefore be 

^'/S'Srernative ground on which 
the raid might be justified is by 
reference to the doctnne of repn- 
sals. defined in the A au/tla* 
Arbitration of 1928. but even 
under that doctrine the raid on 
Libya was probably dispropor- 
tionate to the provocation. In any 
event the modem view is mat the 
doctrine has been overruled by 
Articles 2 (3) and 2 (4) of the UN 
Charter. 

However, when the Charter was 
negotiated at San Francisco in 
1945 the delegates believed that 
they were constructing a hew 

worid order in which the use of 
force by an aggrieved slate would 
be unnecessary. They believed 
that the organs of the new 
organization, notably the Security 
Council and the International 
Court of Justice, would be able to fc- 
keep the peace and do justice 
between states. 

Sadly, their belief was not 
fulfilled, principally owing to the 
use of the veto in the Security 
Council and failure by members of 
all UN organs to deal feiriv, 
objectively and promptly with the 
disputes that came before them. 

As a matter of law therefore I 
consider that the Americans 
should have made a complaint to 
the Security Council under Article 
35, but they formed the view, 
probably correctly, that no effec- 
tive action would have been taken. 

The Americans may well have 
decided that there is no obligation 
to respect the legal rights of a state * 
that does not respect the legal 
rights of others, and they appear to 
have made a judgement that 
nationssuch as Libya will be less 
likely to violate international law 
if they understand that by so doing 
they forfeit its protection. This is 
of course a political judgement 
Only time will tell whether it was 
wise. 

In a developed system of law, 
such as exists in the United 
Kingdom, the justification for 
depriving the citizen of his right to 
use “self-help" is that the legal 
system will protect his legitimate 
interests on his behalf, but if that 
system breaks down citizens will 
inevitably assert their natural right 
to protect their own interests as 
they see fit. So it is at . the £ 
international level. 

In the modern worid terrorism 
has become a phenomenon which 
is not only intolerable but is also a 
growing threat to international 
peace. Accordingly, if the United 
Nations - expects to be taken 
seriously ft must convene 2 con- 
ference as a matter of urgency for 
the purpose of negotiating effective 
legal -measures against inter- 
national terrorism. For as long as 
there is no effective legal older, 
stales will of necessity take the law 
into their own hands.

And now, a word 
from our sponsor 


This publication recently printed a 
furious letter, from Mr Basil 
Boo thro yd. protesting against the 
commercialization of lime by 
British Telecom. “At the third 
stroke the time from Accurist will 
be..." intones the Speaking 
Cock, thus ensuring that Mr 
Boothroyd would not. to his dying 
day. buy anything, made by 
AccurisL 

I know how he feels. 1 tend to 
feel ihe same way myself. I gel 
depressed when cricket scores, 
weather forecasts, share prices and 
other things, which should be a 
force of nature arrive with a 
commercial label newly attached. 

J get depressed when leagues 
become- Gola Leagues and tests 
become Cable and Wireless Tests 
and cups become Milk Cups. Who , 
warns a designer cup when or- 
dinary cups were perfectly all 
right? It is like finding that a piece 
of countryside has suddenly be- 
come An Area of Outstanding 
Natural Beauty or a chunk of 
Heritage Coastline. Designer land- 
scape. indeed. 

Bui then I shake off my de- 
pression with ihe thought that 
nothing has really changed. When 
a label sticks long enough, it 
becomes part of the product. The 
term Heritage Coastline may seem 
raw and new. but Cornish Riviera 
was in its day a commercial term 
dreamt up by the Great Western 
Railway.. 

You could argue thatwc need 
more terms like that., not fewer. 
The Mediterranean countries 
spatter their coastlines with de- 
signer labels like Costa Blanca and 
Cote d'Azur: the Germans publi- 
cize their Romamische Sirassc 
and the Spaniards their Ruta de 
los Pueblos Blancos: but we do not 
have angry letters in The Times 
about it. 

Ner is it the first time, come to 
think of iL that time has been 
given a label. If time belongs to 
everyone, as Mr Boothroyd and I 
would like to think, then how dare 
we call it British Summer Time? 
And ifyou claim that that is just a 
local variant, then how dare we 
call it Greenwich Mean Time? If 
that is not designer time. 1 do not 
know what it is. 

There is a huge clock-tower 
rising above the elevated section 
of the M4 coming into London 
which for many years bore the 
name “Martini" - indeed, it was 
known as the Martini Clock. 
Then, for a while, it carried the 
name “Wimpcy*, f think, and now 
it is labelled “Tcc". But whenever 


I hear it referred to. it is still called 
the Martini Clock, which seems to 
prove that brash commercialism 
can mature into the landscape and 
thereafter into nostalgia. 

And surely there is more of this 
to come, not less. 1 find it 
astonishing, for instance, that road 
signs have so far gone 
unsponsorcd. “Give Way". “Turn 
Right” and "Slough and The 
West", we arc told. Something 
missing here, surely. Why not 
“Give Way with Ferodo". “Turn 
Right with Esso” or “Accurist 
brings you Slough and The West"? 
A wonderful new source of rev- 
enue here, at the risk onlv of 
annqying Mr Boothroyd. - 

Police messages seem to offer 
another totally unexploited field. 
"United Cupcakes asks you to 
avoid the M25. after an accident 
has closed Exit 13...": “Perrier 
brings you Ibc latest burst water- 
mains in the London area ...” It 
may seem startling now. but give it 
a few years and who would 
remember a time when it was not 
so? 

The final stronghold. I suppose, 
would be our political institutions. 
Sponsored politics an outrage? 
Well, maybe, but already 1 some- 
times find myself referring, in all 
innocence, to our leader as Mrs 
Thaatchi. 1 suggest that we start bv 
gently inserting commercial 
sponsorship into new- Acts of 
Parliament — the Sunday Trading 
and Accurist Bill, for example — 
and then gradually move on to 
the Queen's Speech and the Bud- 
get. The Tory party already re- 
ceives such large sums ’from 
industry that it seems churlish not 
to recognize this in some way. 

A s always, the Americans arc 
first m the field. Critics have 
objected that their tactics vis-a-vis 
Liby-a seem governed in 
Ramboesque thinking Well o’f 
course they arc. In America, war is

THE MISSION TO COME 


-4 Mrs Thatcher cannot have 

- much enjoyed the early houre 
of yesterday morning. Soon 
after imdnight came the big- 
gest Commons revolt of this 
parliament and a defeat on a 
major plank of her programme 
to remove the random hand- of 
the bureaucrat from British 

• economic life; Then no sooner 
had Tory backbenchers 
gunned down the Shops B3I 

“*“2* 50011,8 Md Suns of- 
US Fill warplanes were in 

rather more serious action 

- against the cities of Libya. The 
first of these unconnected 

& events would, as she knew 
well bring the charge that she 
had failed to exert control over 
her. party, the second, that she 
had equally failed to influence 
actions carried out from Brit- 

- ish soil by President Reagan. 
And so. in the Commons later 
in the day, those charges duly 
came. 

Mrs Thatcher dealt deter- 
minedly with both - helped by 
the by-now predictably inept 
performance by the Labour 
leader Mr Kinnock. But her 
success was not without some 

! • uncomfortable moments. Al- 
though she was presenting a 
powerful case, it sometimes 
seemed as though she were 

. presenting a rather weak one. 
It remains a remarkable feet 
about British political life in 
1 986 that a Conservative 
Prime Minister has to struggle 
so hard to defend an ally's use 
of its own aircraft and its own 
pilots to attack a common 
enemy of western civilisation. 

The justification for the US 
raid ought not to have been in 
doubt. Mr Gadaffi runs a 
terrorist state. He uses the 
apparatus of that slate to 
attack individual citizens of 
the Western alliance. He re- 
serves special spite for the 
murder and attempted murder 
of Americans who are in his 
gun sights only because they 
are working away from home 
to protect Western freedoms. 
The US right to- retaliate 
should be easily jinderstood. 
Indeed although the specific 
type of threat which Gadaffi 
poses was little considered by 
the authors of the UN charter, 
it can be properly justified 
according to that charter’s 
terms. 

And yet Mrs Thatcher was 
on the defensive over the exact 
number of ministers she con- 
sulted, over the extent of 
consultations with European 
leaders (whose locus in the 
matter was weak in the first 
instance and whose poor 
record of anti-terrorism 
scarcely brought them greater 
strength) and her subservience 
to Mr Reagan's whim. 


American action may, it is to 
be hoped, be more distin- 
guished 1 than yesterday's. .It is 
noteworthy, for example, that 
those MPs who were most 
exercised about the numberof 
civilian casualties were also 
those who would have refused 
the right of the US to use res 
more accurate FI 1 1 jets add 
force them to use instead only 
the less appropriate and less 
precise aircraft that were avail- 
able on the aircraft carriers of 
the Sixth Fleet Under Mr 
Bern's guidance, the regret- 
table civilian casualties in 
Tripoli would undoubtedly 
have been very much greater. 

Mrs Thatcher's difficulties 
did not of course, stem di- 
rectly from her Commons 
defeat the night before. But it 
must be clearer now than ft has 
ever been just how great a 
degree of political forde is 
required to win an argument 
that should have been but- 
toned up years ago bat which 
has been left hanging loose by 
the same mixture of fear and 
false premises that were dis- 
played in the Commons yes- 
terday. 

First of all there is the 
curious idea that foreign af- 
fairs can somehow be man- 
aged without risk. It was 
almost possible to hear the. 
sharp intaking of breath when 
Mrs Thatcher mentioned the 
“risk" , of the acdoq in the 
Commons yesterday. In the 
nuclear age we have become 
used to recognising rids, even 
on occasions feeing up to 
them. But as to taking risks, 
the answer is na 

The greatest threat to West- 
ern freedoms may be the 
Soviet Union but that does not 
make the USSR the only 
threat The growth of terrorist 
states must be curbed while it 
still can be curbed. The risks of 
extension of the conflict must 
be minimised. And in this 
case, it would appear that it 
has been. 

The second fallacy is that 
the United States is not merely 
our big brother and our.de? 
fender but our twin-brother 
and spiritual soul-mate, that 
its motivations and impulses 
are not merely directed in our 
interests but mutually held 
between us. American 
nationalism is a necessary fuel 
of America’s world leadership. 
With it may come an ex- 
hibition of pride, anger and 
moral fervour which is not to 
European tastes. . Such senti- 
ments have rescued Europe in • 
the past and will be needed to 
do so again. European political 
opinion has to take account of - 
this force. For years it has 
prefered to ignore it. 

. Britain is, of course; in inafty 


respects, the least offender in 
this regard. But it also has one 
of thegreatesi problems. It is 
now in the process of acquiring 
the latest in a series of in- 
dependent nuclear deterrents, 
none of which has been quite 
as independent as British poli- 
ticians have often liked to 
pretend. In • the past a cosy 
relationship between the mili- 
tary establishment and the 
opposing political parties has 
ensured that the truth -about 
the role of Britain's bomb has 
been politely obscured. As Mr 
John Barry explained in his 
recent television documentary 
on the issue, this option is no 
longer available. Trident needs 
to be explained to the British 
public for what it really is. 
something imperfect, not nec- 
essarily the weapon we would 
have chosen if we were starting 
from scratch, but the best 
weapon on offer. One can 
choose one's friends in one's 
own image and to one's precise 
individual preference. One 
does not have that luxury with 
super-power allies and nuclear 
deterrents. 

. There are many reasons why 
Britain needs Mrs Thatcher to 
be the strong leader of a strong 
and united party but the need 
to communicate an unambigu- 
ous sense of the military 
relation between this country 
and the United States is argu- 
ably the most important task 
that remains to her. Beside this 
need, all else must. pale. And 
indeed, she must be well aware 
that in the perilous shallows of 
Westland and BL where she 
has spent so much of this year 
so for. public suspicion of US 
intentions has always been just 
below the surface. The big 
failure has been pushing ahead 
the small failures. 

Mrs Thatcher's instincts are 
undoubtedly to be more hon- 
est on this issue than any of her 
recent predecessors. If she 
seemed occasionally hesitant 
yesterday, it is because, while 
the private mind may be dear, 
the public script is only sketch- 
ily inked in on -the political 
page. She was ill-advised, .for 
example, to say that it was 
“inconceivable" that per- 
mission for the Americans to 
use the bases would be denied. 
It is an important component 
of the relation between Great 
Britain and the United States 
that the one partner can 
conceive of denying the other. 
Officials with first-hand 
experience of the Prime 
Minister's conversations with 
Mi/ Reagan laugh off the 
“President’s poodle” charge as 
absurd. But it has to be seen to 
be absurd. And, through little 
fault of Mrs Thatcher's, that 
requires a major mission and a 
considerable struggle ahead. * 


Today’s debate on the 

MEANWHILE ON THE HIGH STREET 


On Monday night an expedi- 
ent coalition wrecked a sen- 
sible scheme for weekend 
retailing. The party of collec- 
tivism took upon itself, 
characteristically, the interests 
of producer groups. The party 
of the middle way abjured the 
majority of Britons, who are 
consumers. The Ulster Union- 
ists pursued their politics of 
vendetta, for all the world like 
those nineteenth century Irish 
nationalists who attempted to 
destroy the well-being of the 
kingdom for the sake of their 
separatism. .And for the rest, 
the Conservative Sabbatarians, 

this was a victory' of whited 
sepulchres, public Christians 
who put formality of obser- 
vance before all, policy ir- 
rationalists who would sooner 
see anachronism persist inan 
fairness meted out to shop- 
keepers, consumers and au 
those sincerely P^“ 

ple. Christian and non-enns- 
tian. who would ask merely to 
be allowed to make a personal 
choice about how they spend 
their time on Sunday.

Fear of change. Married to 
sentimental regard for old 
ways, this proved an in- 
surmountable obstacle to leg- 
islative rationalization. no 
matter what the cost to the 
economic well-being of the 
agnostic majority. 

Mr Bitten was quick to 
announce the end of the Shops 
Bill, perhaps too quick. His 
celerity was understandable in 
the Parliamentary circum- 
stances, but come the day (and 
it is likely to be soon) when a 
perfectly respectable retailer ‘is 
subjected to criminal prosecu- 
tion for opening on Sunday, 
his haste may look like precip- 
itous flight. The issue. will not 
quietly die. The anomalies are 
too gross, the law and its 
execution too untidy.' .There 
are some who now project a 
sort of local option 1 with 
certain local authorities , force- 
fully implementing the .'law 
forbidding retail trading,' oth- 
ers turning a blind ,eye.' This 
would, indeed, be a sort of 
solution, kin to that recorn- 
mended by Mr Teddy Taylor 
and others earlier in the bill s 
transit. But it could become a 
worst case of quasi-ofncial 
tolerance of law-breaking - as 
intolerable in retail .trading as 
in traffic, or industrial rela- 
tions or anywhere else. The 
law is a seamless web. 

For Labour Mr Kaufman, 
ever the corpora tisL proposed 
a round-table conference of 
churches, shopkeepp and 
trades unionists, to dream tip 
some compromise. What is 
missing from bis' list are ine 
consumers, and there must be 
now be a temptation tor 


ministers to sit and wait for 
popular discontent to well up, 
at least in sufficient volume- to 
drown out the shrill tone of the 
lobbies that were so energeti- 
cally mobilized over the Shops 
Bill. It surely wilL • 

Meanwhile the failure of this 
bill, one so central to , the 
Government's ambition 1 of 
modernizing the. British econ- 
omy, gives rise to reflection. 
One concerns the relationship 
of the Church of England and 
the State. Far the bishops ’to 
align themselves with faction, 
as they have on more than one 
recent occasion, makes prob- 
lematic the Establishment of 
the Church. A Conservative 
government, possibly one re- 
freshed and renewed, would 
do well to think seriously 
about the future of the 
Church's constitutional ...po- 
sition, and it would-be thanked 
by the more open-minded 
clerics for doing so. 

Another line ' of thought 
concerns the strength of the 
forces opposed to moderniza- 
tion in Britain. The vote, the 
other night cut across*, the 
parties, showed how wide 
conservatism (small c) is 
distributed. Pundits may .be 
right in concluding that no 
lasting damage~was done ttf the 
Conservative Party's unity or 
ability to function as. the 
governing party. But a more 
serious, division within - the 
nation was exposed, not for the 
first time — and would have 
been more clearly Visible if 
such Labour MPs as. Mr 
Austin Mitchell, who espoused 
the purposes of the Shops Bill 
but had not the courage to 
follow through, had voted 
their consciences. -It . is a di-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Fair treatment 
in shipbuilding 

Fn om the Chairman of Yam**' 
Shipbuilders Lid 

Sir. To dale Yarrow Shipbuilders 
has not publicly entered ihe 
debate as to which shipyard 
consortium may win the auxiliary 
oiler replenishments (AOR) order. 
Now. however, there appears a 
danger that the MoD competitive 
tendering policy may be discarded 
in favour of other less important 
criteria' which have been pro- 
moted by the noisy rhetoric of our 
competitors. 

The competitive tendering rules 
which have prevailed over the last 
IS months of tendering effort 
must be adhered to if the MoD is 
to obtain value for money and the 
best design package. 

The racts behind Yarrow's 
participation are: 

I. We are a fcev member iit the 
Hariand & Wolfr consortium and 
will handle about one third of the 
bid value from Scotland. This is 
similar to the residual value which 
would reside with the lead con- 
tractor — m our case Hariand & 
WolfL 

1 Wc. like Swan Hunter, have 
recently been ■“privatised'' from 
British Shipbuilders. Why. on this 
basis, has Yarrow not received the 
same attention as Swan Hunter, 
whcn.wc. too. arc competing as a 
pri vaiccompany? 

3. Wc arc confident that wc have 
brought a competitive and tech- 
nical edge to the Hariand & Wolff 
bid. based on our unquestioned 
lead in warship design expertise, 
and have sought no favours.

Prisons dispute 

From ihe Secreraiy of the .issoci- 
alion of Prison Denial Surgeons 
Sir. I should like to say. on behalf 
of my members, that we do not 
find a problem with what Mr Eric 
Caines, the Prison Department's 
director of finance and personnel, 
has • termed “the restrictive 
practices'' of prison officers. My 
members find that often the only 
reason they' are able to continue to 
treat patients, with the present 
chronic shortage of prison TstafT. is 
due to the flexible attitude of the 
prison officers. 

• h is often forgotten that many of 
the improvements in conditions 
that have come about in recent 
years -within prisons- have arisen 
not from the Prison Department 
but due to pressure from the 
Prison Officers .Association. 

h In mates are. however, being 
denied dental treatment where 
staffing problems are acute, and 
due to tne cash limits that have 
been imposed. Wc in the associ- 
ation are concerned that before 
too long an inmate might consider 
a necessary to take the Home 
Office to court for this basic denial 
of human rights. '

Making the best of marriage 

From .Mrs J. Bolinghroke women ha\c been urged to fed 


Sir. Mr George Brown (April I) is 
correct to note political, social and 
religious implications in the rising 
divorce rate, but he may be 
mistaken in claiming that this rise 
is the cause of State decay. 

I suggest two quite different 
fanors which proceeded the Di- 
vorce Reform Act of 1969. The 
formation of the welfare state in 
1948 and the wide availability of 
contraceptive pills from I960 
onwards have together tended to 
alter the general view of marriage 
as a continuing wax of life. For a 
woman, having a family is now a 
conscious decision and.' for a man 
who tires of family life, he is 
secure in the knowledge that the 
State will pick up the pieces if he 
opts OllL 

Marriage is now something 
extra nice, like private education 
or private health car e. You have it 
if you can afford iL over and 
above what you must pay for State 
education and the 'National 
Health Service. 

In the past Church and State 
established systems which the 
majority accepted because there 
was no acceptable alternative. 
Church and State were regulating 
the way people lived their lives 
and the Church carried out its 
ceremonies for the major events of 
birth, marriage and death. The 
State reluctantly allowed a small 
measure of divorce. 

State decay will not be halted by 
amending the Divorce Reform 
Act of 1969 or repealing the 
Matrimonial Causes Act of 1973. 
It really needs a complete change 
of heart by people themselves, but 
my suggestion, to start the ball 
rolling, is State prizes for partners 
in enduring marriages.

From Mrs Larva Lang Brow n 
Sir. The letter in The Times from 
Mr George G. Brown in which he 
writes. about the increase in di- 
vorce in this country and its 
serious consequences is very wel- 
come at this time. I would like to 
add a corollary to this: that the 
decline in respect for marriage 
(and even knowledge about mar- 
riage) has led to the present 
increase in immorality and crime. 

With marriage " no longer the 
pivot of society w hich it has been 
for thousands of years, the stabil- 
ity and security of home life is 
endangered. Indeed we arc seeing 
in consequence a drying-up of 
real loving cart of children. 

During the last half-century 
there has been a kind of whisper- 
ing campaign against marriage, h 
has been belittled and scorned and 


ashamed of being mothers and 
home-makers, especially if they 
uished to do this more carefully 
and better by /ring at home. 
Working away from home is 
considered to be a better way to 
personal fulfilment. 

As our sense of responsibility 
for home and children diminishes 
we naturally take less care to 
protect ihcm from abuse. Now we 
arc faced with a large increase in 
sexual abuse of children in their 
homes. How naive wc are when 
we talk about latching small 
children about dangers of this 
kind! 

The natural unselF-conscious 
watchfulness of a mother or other 
responsible female at home will 
keep this danger at bay. while 
ensuring a happy and disciplined 
home life which will inculcate a 
proper judgement of character in 
the children and suspicion of what 
is improper. But this knowledge 
will come in lime as they grow up 
and cannot be taught to little 
children by telling them or warn- 
ing them. They need protection, 
noi teaching. 

It must be added that the idea so 
widely held that looking after 
children is boring and home life a 
drudgery is quite false. Nothing 
can be more varied and interest- 
ing. 

Yours faithfullv.

Sir. There i\ something that can be 
done about there being so many 
divorces — delay marriages. The 
divorce rate among teenage brides 
is twice as high as for those aged 
20—24 (and four times as high as 
for those aged 25—291. 

Why not raise the minimum 
age? It is dearly too low in any 
ease, and it would be perfectly 
reasonable for society to ask those 
intending to be married to be. lei

there could be exceptions, granted 
only by a magistrate, society

registration and a definite period 
of engagement of so many

Polytechnic places 

From ihe Rcaor. of Sunderland 
Pttlyiecimk 

Sir. Sir Keith Joseph's erudite 
explanation (April 9) of how he 
views the proposed cuts in poly- 
technic student places does. I'm 
afraid, miss the point 

It illustrates once again the 
Government's lack of understand- 
ing of the impact its policies, 
whether final or only proposed, 
could have on the actual people to 
whom the policies apply: in this 
case the sixth formers applying 
this year for places in 1987—88. 
the year of the proposed cuts. 

Sir Keith is quite right to point 
out that the proposal by NAB 
(National Advisory Body) to cut 
9.500 places in public— sector 
higher education from 1987—88 
(equivalent to approximately 60 
average— sized comprehensive 
sixth forms) will cause a degree of 


alarm among students and par- 
ents. The mere slating of the 
proposal, implying (here is the 
possibility of its being im- 
plemented. is what has caused the 
alarm, not the media coverage. 

Could the NAB or Sir Keith 
please advise me and my fellow 
directors what wc are to say to 
students (and their parents) apply- 
ing this. September for places on 
courses that might not exist when 
they come to take them up in 
1 987? Unlike the recent university- 
cutbacks. when polytechnics took

Ordination of women 

I nn) i C ’hancrllrtr E. ( iurth Moore 
Sir. Before your correspondent 
the Revd Henry Pearson, again 
attacks the Bishop of London for 
literalism (April 5) he would do 
well to learn some canon law. The 
Bishop is quite right jo interpret 
the 39 Articles “in a completely 
literalistic way” for that is pre- 
cisely what we arc told to do in 
their preface, headed “His 
Majesty's’ Declaration'*, where wc 
are enjoined to take them “in the • 
literal .and grammatical sense”. 

So taken. . Article XWI1I. 
which your correspondent circs, is 
dearly righL it Is not. by Christy 
ordinance that the. sacrament is 
reserved, lifted up or worshipped. 


But. because our Lord did not 
command such practices, it does 
noi mean that they are con- 
demned. Indeed, were the sac- 
rament never carried about, it 
could never be received by the 
faithful. 

As a priest and as a lawyer I 
have experienced very hide diffi- 
culty in m> acceptance of the 39 
Articles. That is because, as a 
canonist. I have learnt how to 
interpret them. Would ihat other 
clerics . would also learn some 
canon law -wherein so much of 
their theology is enshrined!

Sir. I have for long enjoyed Mr 
Rev Bellamy's reports and opin- 
ions. bot I am sorry to say that I 
have to disagree with his criticism 
(report. April 10) of the Lawn 
Tennis Association for requesting 
Beckenham not to invite Mr 
Jimmy Connors to their Cen- 
tenary Tournament. 

ll is one thing fo be prepared to 
disagree with the Men's Inter-

Council, but quite another to go 
against their action in disciplining 
a player for even further damaging 
the image of the game. 

1 was present at Boca West at 
the . Lipton . International and 
thought H was cnemial for the 
MIPTC to penalise a player who 
refused to continue a semi-final 
because he disagreed with a line” 
call. ■ . 

. This is not a question of 
subservience" to a totalitarian 
body.* it is a - demonstration of 
support so that biaipnt flouting of 
the rales w ill not be condoned. Mr 
Bellamy says that the LTA cannot 


emerge from “this Beckenham

a player to enter their tournament 
before his suspension period had 
expired would surely have smelt a 
greai deal worse.

ON THIS DAY 

APRIL 16 1895 

The Chinese-Japanesemr arose 

from each nation sclaun lor 

supremacy in. Korea. The conflict 

i vas short beginning m August 
1894 and ending u-itn tne 
predicted defeat of China in April 
1895. one for which no blame 
could be levelled at Admiral Ting. 


ADMIRAL TING AT BAY 
(FROM OUR 
CORRESPONDENT) 

TOKJO. MARCH 1- 

The surrender of the Chinese 
fleet and of the remaining forts at 
Wei-hai-wei constituted the most 
striking scene in the drama of the 
war. Several days before the event, 
Vice-Admiral I to. Commander-in- 
Chief of the Japanese naval squad- 
rons, had addressed a letter to 
Admiral Ting, who held a corre- 
sponding position on the Chinese 
side. The two men were intimate 
friends. They bad often come 
together before the war. and each 
heal been attracted to the other by 
qualities of bonhomie and profes- 
sional zeal which both bad in 
common. I to, therefore, in address- 
ing Ting by letter while the fleets 
commanded by the two admirals 
were waiting to destroy each other, 

, divested himself entirely of his 
public capacity and spoke simply 
as a friend. 

The gist of the letter was to 
advise that Ting should abandon a 
doomed cause and take refuge in 
Japan until (he termination of the 
war. Naturally, the question of 
Ting’s personal safety was kept out 
of sight Admiral Ito based his 
advice solely on patriotic motives 

The great question that you have now 
to determine is whether yoa will throw- 
in your lot with s country that you see 
idling to rain, and be involved in a 
result inevitable under unchanged ad- 
ministrative circumstances, or whether 
you will preserve the strength that 
remains to you and evolve another plan 
hereafter. 

Admiral Ito did not add to his 
reputation by this letter. The 
ethics it advocates have never been 
those adopted by brave and loyal 
men in any age. Ting's duty was in 
the real present not in a hypotheti- 
cal future. He had to sene his 
country such as it was, not to wait 
to serve it such as it might be: to 
save the fleet actually intrusted to 
his command, not to save himself 
in the vague hope of commanding a 
better fleet thereafter. He adopted 
the only dignified course under the 
circumstances by leaving the letter 
unnoticed — 

Three things were essential to 
the success of his (Ting's] plan — 
first, that every fort evacuated by 
the Chinese should be previously 
dismantled, otherwise its guns 
might be used against the Chinese 
ships; secondly, that in the event of 
the capture of the eastern forts the 
garrison of ihe western should still 
hold their ground, trusting to the 
fleet to defend the approaches to 
their position; and, thirdly, that 
the Japanese should not obtain 
destructive access to the ships 
inside the Bay. All these contin- 
gencies were based on false as 
sumptions; the two first on the 
hypothesis that Chinese troops at 
Wei-hai-wei would fight with cour- 
age and coolness such as they had 
never previously displayed; the 
third on the supposition that 
Japanese pluck and daring would 
Call short of the standard hitherto 
attained by them. Ting’s project 
was therefore doomed from the 
outset to disappointment ... 

•The defenders of the western 
forts, not waiting to be attacked, 
took advantage of a friendly snow- 
storm and lied. Not being in the 
presence of any immediate peril, 
they could have effectually disman- 
tled the forts before evacuating 
them. They did not do so. however, 
and the miserable poltroonery of 
their neglect is beyond censure, for 
had the armament of these forts 
fallen into Japanese hands in a 
serviceable condition, not only the 
insular defences but also the fleet 
itself would have been brought 
under the muzzles of powerful 
artillery at fatally close ranges. 
Fortunately for himself. Admiral 
Ting obtained timely information 
of this disgraceful flight. He landed 
a party of marines, dismantled the 
fiirts, and destroyed a fleet of junks 
that might have served to trans- 
port an assaulting party against the 
islands. Meanwhile, General Tai. 
the Commander-in-Chief fo the 
land forces, effected his escape to 
L inkung Island. Admiral Ting was 
a bluff man. Originally a pirate, he 
possessed the faculty of .conveying 
his meaning forcibly. What he said 
to Tai restored that fugitive's 
conception of manhood. With the 
Admiral's reproaches ringing in his 
ears, he restored Co the Chinaman's 
final retreat from trouble or dis- 
grace — a fatal dose of opium 
.' His example was followed by his 
second in command. Commodore 
Liu. and by the officer command- 
ing the Liukung garrison. General 
Chang _ Admiral Ito restored one 
or the captured men-of-war in 
order that the bodies of the three 1 
officers might be carried home in 
due state, and as the vessel steamed 
out of Wei-hai-wei every Japanese 
ship manned its yards and fired a 
salute to the memory of Chinas 
best soldier.

THE 


TIMES 


A SPECIAL REPORT ON 

ITALIAN REGIONS/1 


(C FOCUS D 



region 


united 



Italy is something or a consti- 
tutional hybrid. The stale has 
been decentralized, but not to 
the point of making the coun- 
try a federation. And this 
despite the fact that regional 
loyalties remain very strong. 

After 15 years of experi- 
menting with a particular 
brand of regionalism, some 
Italians admit with relief that 
the worst fears expressed at 
the time it was launched have 
not been justified. Others are 
convinced that potentially it 
remains an example of ad- 
vanced constitutional think- 
ing to be followed elsewhere in 
Europe. 

From the beginning of the 
process of uniting the country 
in the mid-19th century, there 
was a current which saw the 
best framework for the new 
nation in terms of a decentral- 
ized state. Shortly before he 
died, Cavour himself had set 
up a commission which had 
the task of proposing legisla- 
tion to provide a new adminis- 
trative basis for the young 
slate. The three elements fore- 
seen were those that exist 
today: the municipality, the 
province and the region. 

Partly because of Cavours 
early death, the idea of devis- 
ing an administrative frame- 
work suitable for the newly 
united country went into 
abeyance and the structure 
already established in Pied- 
mont, the state around which 
Italy was unified, was applied 
to the whole country. 

The idea of regionalism was 
not dead, however, though it 
made little practical progress 
and was kept strictly in the 
background during the Fascist 
period because Mussolini's 
view of the state was that it 
should be united and strong. 

Hence it was only logical 
that after the war the republi- 
can constitution should have 
introduced regionalism into 
Italian life. However, the poli- 
ticians kept the country wait- 
ing nearly a quarter of a 


century before approving the 
necessary legislation for au- 
plying what the republic's 
founding fathers required. 
The condition of a constitu- 
tional hybridism was not just 
that Italy was a cross between 
a federal and a centralized 
system but also how far the 
semi-autonomy permitted by 
the constitution was political- 
ly expedient 

The Christian Democrats 
were on the whole in favour ol 
establishing the regions but 
after a massive electoral vic- 
tory in 1948 which gave them 
an overall majority, their en- 
thusiasm waned. There ap- 
peared to be little point in sub- 
dividing the country into 
regions which would have 
been partly controlled by ihc 
opposition. Their political in- 
terests were belter served by 
forgetting what the Constitu- 
tion laid down. It was not 
until the Socialists entered the 
coalition — 

the Christian 
Democrats in 
the early 
1 960s that the 
matter was se- 
riously raised 
again. The ex- 
ceptions to 
this rule were 
the five spe-. 
cial regions whose claims to a 
wide degree of autonomy were 
seen to require urgent treat- 
ment. These were, first, Sicily. 
Sardinia and the Valle 
d'.Aosia. all of which received 
their status of semi-autono- 
mous regions even before the 
Constitution came into force 
in January 1948. They were 
followed in 1948 by Trentino- 
Alto Adige and in 1963 by 
Friuli-Venezia Giulia. All 
these areas had particular 
problems of minorities or a 
strong autonomous tradition 
(reaching the level of sporadic 
outbreaks of separatist feeling 
in the two islands). 

There is a distinction be- 


Demonstrations and 
roadblocks last 
month showed the 
difference between 
north and south 


gions and the remaining 15. 
The five have more autono- 
my. in keeping with their 
greater divergence from the 
common run of regions. The 
15 ordinary regions had to 
wait much longer for legisla- 
tion. first to establish them 
and then to devolve power to 
them. The debate introducing 
this legislation was the longest 
in the republic's history. It was 
not until 1971 that this basic 
aspect of the Constitution was 
finally honoured. 

Another form of hybridism 
only too quickly showed itself. 
Ihat is the difference in social 
outlook and democratic politi- 
cal development between 
North and South. There have 
been changes in the meantime 
but not fundamental ones. 

Apulia, for instance, has 
made progress as a result of 
successful economic initia- 
tives which distinguish the 
Adriatic coast of Italy from 
■ ■■■— ■ the Tyrrheni- 

an. Sicily has 
learnt to live 
more success- 
fully between 
its own legis- 
lative assem- 
bly and 
administra- 
tion in Paler- 
— — — — — — ■ mo and the 
central government. Sardinia 
looks much less well disposed 
towards Rome now than it did 
a decade ago. This is in great 
part due to the collapse of the 
new industries installed there 
and largely based on 
petrochemicals. 

The marked difference be- 
tween North and South re- 
emerged dramatically last 
month when there were dem- 
onstrations and roadblocks in 
the South and processions of 
southern administrators 
through the streets of Rome 
following application of a law 
permitting owners of build- 
ings constructed without a 
licence to have them regis- 


tween these five special re-- tered with the local municipal 


offices if fines were paid. The 
size of these would depend on 
the extent of the illegal build- 
ing and when it was carried 
out. 

The demonstrators argued 
that southerners should not 
have to pay the fines, nor 
should have them substantial- 
ly reduced, because in many 
parts of the South any building 
was illegal, due to the fact that 
the municipalities had no 
town planning regulations. 
The point was most clearly 
made by one Sicilian town 
where the percentage of unli- 
censed budding was said to 
have reached 100. 

The protesters had a point 
but they could have been 
accused of having left their 
protest too late. They should 
have made their difficulties 
known in the normal course of 
the debates on this measure m 
the national parliament and in 
the regional assembly. One 
answer to that perhaps naive 
assumption is that in the 
Italian gamut of municipal- 
ities. provinces and regions, it 
is frequently the mayor who is 
most in contact with public 
opinion, certainly not the 
province, nor, as yet, the 
representatives of the regions. 
The fundamental point, and a 
biller one. was that national 
legislation accepted by the 
North could not be applied in 
the same way in the South. 

There were originally two 
principal aims of regionalism. 
The first was to cut down the 
oppressive weight of the cum- 
bersome central bureaucracy. 
The object was to decentralize 
and reform what remained of 
the centra] civil service. 

The second aim was to help 
release the energies which 
Italians derive from an aware- 
ness of local loyalties. Local 
patriotism, despite all the 
great social changes in Italy 
and the long series of migra- 
tions from countryside to 
town and from South to 
North, remains strong. 



April 16, 1986 


D ifferences that block 
the path to progress 
in a nation thaf 


strives 


Italy's 
twenty 
regions: 

Sicily. Sar- 
dinia, Valle 
d' Aosta and Tren- 
ti no- Alto Adige 
received their autonomy 
in 1948. Friuli-Venezia 
Giulia, 1963, the rest. 1971 

The objections to regional- 
ism were, on the face of it, 
more pragmatic. Conserva- 
tives feared that the strongly 
Communist centre would end 
up as a series of little red 
republics from Emilia-Roma- 
gna across to Tuscany. Anoth- 
er objection was that the 
operation would be costly. 

Nobody has won. The 
sweeping changes in the civil 
service simply did not take 
place. Loral loyalties are 
strong but they have not been 
stimulated to any notable 
extent by the existence of the 
regions. Some regions have 
been run by the Communists, 
in general rather well, and the 
red " menace ' which some 
alarmists though would split 


the peninsula, just as the Papal 
states did in the past before 
they were annexed to Italy, 
has not proved to be at all 
frightening. Establishing the 
regions cost the state money, 
and a number of them have 
formed the habit of collecting 
funds from the national gov- 
ernment for agreed projects 
which then remain, through 
administrative inertia, in the 
regional coffers. 

Does that mean that the 
whole experiment has been a 
failure? Defeatism comes 
quickly to the Italian mind in 
anything concerning the 
country's administrative pro- 
cesses. Bureaucracy is as far as 
possible to be avoided if you 
are not a part of it if you are. 


then the purpose is to exploit 
it That would be the general 
view of the country towards 
its administrative framework. 

A more substantia] reason 
as to why the regions have 
taken longer to settle down is 
. that they were established too 
late- Had they come into 
existence 10 years earlier, their 
developing years would have 
coincided with the period of 
economic expansion instead 
of recession. 

They had a hard birth but 
new ideas are emerging which 
should improve their func- 
tioning and broaden their rale 
within the constitution. 


The regions were tbeUis t-bora 
of Italy's adminirtrative insti- 
tutions and. appropriately 
enough, the Minister for the 
Regions, Carlo Vizzkti, a So- 
cial Democrat from Palermo, 
is, at 38, by far the youngest 
minister in the present 
government. " 

Although not at aU starry- 
eyed a boot the present state of 
regionalism, he avoids being 
led into ma kin g comparisons 
in performance between one 
regio? and another. 

The history of tbe reghms is 
diverse, he says. In particular, 
the south still suffers from the 
same differences between it 
and the north which were 
present when the regions were 
set up by law. Apart from the 
greater soda). and economic 
problems in the sooth, there is 
“a much more intense level of 
quarrelsomeness’* among 
southern regional politicians f 

ami this brings with it a kind 
of administrative paralysis. 

Signor Vizzuri sees some of 
the obstacles to regioitaidevd- 
opment in the rirniinshm c w 
of the regions' birth. Even 
those hi favour of the regions 
differed among themselves as 
to what their function should 
be. The . constitution lays 
down their fields, of activity — 
agricnlture, town planning, 
tourism, communications, 
hospitals and health services, 
local police forces and profes- 
sional training — but th ere is 
room for differing interpreta- 
tions as to whether the region 
should be regarded primarily 
as a political or a serial- and 
economic institution. 

The timing of their formal <£ 
birth was unfortunate in yet 
another way. It coincided with 
the comparatively brief period 
in Italian affairs when nation- 
al economic phunring was 
fashionable. The concept went 
well with the idea of regjenal-

Miniate*: Italy now has a 
inan to setup a permanent 
regional council under his 
. - chairmanship 


Clearly, one of the national 
responsibilities is an effective 
transport network. Claudio 
Signorile, the Minister for 
Transport, has just published 
a plan for the neat decades 
which was devised in consul- 
tation with regional leaders. 

The existing transport sys- 
tem is forced to cope with 
demands in a chaotic and 
disorganized way. During the 
next few years it will be 
necesary to develop a highly 
co-ordinated and more selec- 
tive structure. The railway 
network will have to be 
trimmed down and made 
more efficient. A modernized 
and efficient port system win 
consist of seven main ports. 

The aeroplane win replace 
the train as a means of long 
distance transport, but Alitalia 
wiD lose its monopoly on 
internal flights in Italy. This 
will leave space for some 
smaller companies. 

At present five ministries 
and 16. different institutions 
and administrative bodies are 
involved in the transport sec- 
tor. The transport plan pro- 
poses to do away with this 
fragmentation, which often 
results in waste and inefficien- 
cy. Instead a single program- 
ming, controlling and 
administrative centre will be 
set up. For this purpose the 
C1PET (Interxnimstenal Com- 
mittee for Transport Program- 
ming) will be created. 

It is estimated that the 
demand for transport services 
will increase by 45 per cent 
during the next 15 years. It is 
therefore necessary to ratio- 
nalize and improve tbe sys- 
tem. Experts have established 
the existence of six main 
routes they call “multi-usage 
corridors”, along which most 
national and international 
traffic flows. They cross Italy 
from north to south along the 
coasts and from west to east in 
tbe centre-north regions. 
There are also plans for new 
routes to cross the country in 
the south. 

• The existing network wiH 
have to be improved ana 
traffic flow made easier by 
separating freight from pas- 
senger transport According to 
the authors of the plan, it will 
be necessary to expand rail- 
way links between large and 
medium-sized, -cities located 
not more than 300 km (190 j 
miles) from each other, long- ■ ' 


distance connections (over main tf

Another important point 
concerns the speeding up of

porting goods are obliged to 
stop for up to four or five 
hours at border crossings. 
These delays cause a loss to 
the Italian economy estimated 
at some 700 billion lire (£2 SO 
million). According to existing 
European conventions, the 
wailing time at border 
crossings should not be more 
than 10-15 minutes. 

The jewel in the crown of 
Signor Signorile’s plan is the 
proposed bridge over the 
Straits of Messina. The 3.3 
kilometer (2.06 mile) single- 
span suspension bridge would 
be the longest of its kind in the 
world (more than twice the 
length of the Humber Bridge).

ITALIAN REGIONS/3 


((FOCtJS)! 


Powerhouse in the north 


Milan is experiencing a “big 
bang”. More modest and dif- 
ferent in nature from what will 
hit London in October, its 
impact is nevertheless as far 
reaching on the country’s 
financial life. 

Investors on the Bourse 
have seen their shares double 
in value in 1985 and go up by 
another 50 per cent this year. 
But it has been much more 
than a question of fat profits. 
For years the Bourse used to 
be a gaming table patronized 
by smart-alec speculators and 
insiders playing a narrow mar- 
ket The number of shares is 
still limited, but the ordinary 
public has joined the play. 

This has become possible 
thanks to legislation since 
raid- 1984 permitting the es- 
tablishment of domestic unit 
trusts. Italians, whose person- 
al savings rate is nearly as high 
as that of the Japanese, now 
put their money into units 
instead of the traditional ha- 
vens of houses or tax-exempt 
treasury bonds. Moreover, 
foreign buyers have appeared 
on the scene. 

Milan, capital of Lombardy 
— a region whh nine million 
inhabitants, as many as Bel- 
gium — is the financial and 
economic powerhouse of 
Italy. 

it is the natural point of 
entry for foreign banks wish- 
ing to become established in 
the country. The leading 
banks of Britain and the 
Commonwealth are here, ei- 
ther with their own offices or 
in joint ventures with Italian 
banks. Milan is also the seat of 
the British Chamber of Com- 
merce for Italy whose secre- 
tary, Waller Davies, retired at 
the end of 1985. He spent 
many years in promoting busi- 
ness links between the two 
countries. 

Barclays has become the 
most deeply involved of Brit- 
ish banks in Italy, though its 
operations last year suffered a 
loss. It is the only one to be in- 
volved so far in unit trust 
management, albeit as partner 
in a small management group. 

Since the first domestic unit 
trust was launched in June 
1984. the 43 funds so far 
authorized have gathered 
neariv 37.000 billion lire

Symbol of speculation: 

(£16,000 million) in subscrip- 
tions by March. And, together 
with 10 Luxembourg-based 
funds previously allowed to 
operate, may amass 60,000 
billion lire (£26,000 million) 
by the end of the year. 

The trusts have invested in 
bonds and government securi- 
ties as wen as shares. But, 
taking shares alone, daily 
turnover on the Milan Bourse 
is often more than 300 billion 
lire (£130 million), compared 
with an average 38.7 billion 
lire (£16.8 million) during 
1985. 

Merit is once again 
being rewarded 

Will the bubble burst, 
or will at least the froth boil 
over? Ettore Fumagalh, Presi- 
dent of the Bourse, is the first 
to admit that the index cannot 
always go up, but he believes 
that most of the gains have a 
sound foundation. Milan, he 
argues, has in the last year 
been brought into line with 
world stock markets. Much of 
its climb reflects underlying 
realities. 

Foreigners, particularly 
British and Americans, have, 
in Signor Fumagalli’s view, 
been quicker than many Ital- 


Foreign buyers are now Docking to the Milan Bourse 
Ians to realize that the invest- head of government to visit 


meat climate was changing. 
Political stability seems on the 
way, Italians are working bard 
as well as saving hard, and 
that merit is once again being 
rewarded. 

In bis estimate, between 
2,000 and 3,000 billion lire 
(£1.300 and £2,1 70 million) of 
foreign money flowed into the 
Bourse in 1985, much of it via 
London. 

Similar optimism is ex- 
pressed by Giovanni 
PaUadino of Studi Finanziari. 
a subsidiary of tbe Istituto 
Mobiliare ltaiiano (I MI) mer- 
chant bank, who wrote in a 
report that between I960 and 
1977 Milan had the longest 
bear market ever experienced 
by a stock exchange in the 
industrialized world. It saw its 
capitalization dwindle from 
48 to 3 per cent of gnp. 

The recovery really began in 
1977, when the Pandolfi law— 
named after the then Christian 
Democrat treasury minister — 
abolished double taxation on 
dividends. 

The irony now is that it is 
the political left wing which 
has been taking the upsurge in 
tbe Bourse seriously. Signor 
Fumagalli observes that 
Bettino Craxi, the Socialist 
Prime Minister, was the first 


the Bourse (on December 9). 
The Communist Party organ 
L Vnitb has since last year 
been publishing daily stock 
prices for its readers. Among 
new applicants for a Bourse 
listing is the left-wing co- 
operative movement’s fast- 
growing insurance company, 
UnipoL An increasing number 
of companies is seeking a 
quotation on a stock exchange 
which is still small — only 221 
equities listed — and lop- 
sided. As Signor Palladmo's 
study makes clear, govern- 
ment securities accounted for 
67 per cent of the Bourse's 
capitalization in 1985, bonds 
16 percent, and shares only 17 
per cent. 

The government, in princi- 
ple, favours the partial privati- 
zation of public sector 
companies. But the equity 
market is still dominated by 
five groups — Agnelli/FiaL the 
state-owned IRI (Istituto per 
la Ricostruzione Industrial) 
conglomerate, Assicnrazioni 
Generali (insurance). 
Montedison (chemicals) and 
de Benedetti/Qlivetii (elec- 
tronics, food, etc) - whose 
market capitalization is three 
quarters of the total.

In search of a new image 



More than any other Italian 
region. Liguria faces problems 
of industrial transformation 
like those of Britain, says 
Rinaldo Magnani, Premier of 
the regional government In 
his view “an enormous jump 
has to be made, from mature 
productive activities to the 
new technologies linked to 
electronics, information tech- 
nology and robotics.” 

Liguria, a long sliver of 
mountainous coastline, has 
become the weak link in the 
industrial triangle in which, 
together with Lombardy and 
PiedmonL much of Italy’s 
industrial development since 
the war has been based. Its 
strength lay in sectors now in 
decline, such as steel-making, 
heavy engineering, shipbuild- 
ing and shipping. 

Tourism, another impor- 
tant source of revenue, is also 
seeking to adapt to changed 
circumstances. The Villa 
Hambury botanical gardens at 
Ventimiglia near the French 
frontier are a reminder that 
the attractions of Liguria's 
mild winter climate were dis- 
covered by the British upper 
and middle classes more than 
100 years ago. 

Now. its cramped coast has 
lo accommodate mass inclu- 
sive tours concentrated in the 
summer months. The British 
link lives on the regular flights 
by British Caledonian to Gen- 
oa. whose patron saint. 
George, is shared with 
England. 


industrial disputes, with a 
workforce of 8,400 doing jobs 
which could be performed by 
3.400. The 9.9 million tonnes 
of cargo handled in 1980 sank 
to 7.6 million in 1983. 

In February 19S4 Roberto 
d’Alessando, now aged 51, 
came as president from a 
management career in private 
industry. In May that year he 
wrote in a report that continu- 
ance of the existing situation 
“would mean asking for an 
endorsement for d isaster and I 
as an administrator, in accept- 
ing it, would be guilty of 
dereliction of duty.” 

A development plan was 
therefore drawn up and com- 
plete reorganization, involv- 
ing part-privatization, began. 
Financial contributions were 
called for from users for new 
capital investment and much 
of the deficit was made a 
charge on public funds. 

The reorganization is at 


three levels. The port author- 
ity or consorzio (consortium) 
remains with a role of overall 
direction, planning and con- 
trol. Immediately underneath, 
a management company has 
been established, its capital 
divided between the consorzio 
(40 per cent), the regional 

g overnment, the users, the 
ockers and the co-operative 
movement, each with 15 per 
cenL 

At the lowest level, a series 
of operational companies 
have been or will be set up for 
individual sectors — contain- 
ers. general cargo, bulk cargo, 
ship repairs, oil terminal, air- 
port (a new airport building is 
being opened this spring), 
warehousing, telecommunica- 
tions, and so on. 

The capital slakes vary in 
each operational company. 
The basic idea is that the 
capital should be divided be- 
tween the port authority, local 


authorities, users and workers. 

The dockers' organization, 
CULMV, is among the share- 
holders. It operates a dosed 
shop and resembles not so 
much a trade union as a guild. 
The downward trend has been 
reversed. The development 
plan sets a target of 13.6 
million tonnes of goods traffic 
for 1987. which, with further 
capital investment yet to be 
secured, should rise to at least 
25 million tonnes by 2000. 

Container capacity is being 
increased from 350.000 to 
430,000 a year, and then to 
more than 600.000 at the end 
of 1987. The port authority 
plans to invest in a further 
container port at Volxri to the 
west, and claims that by the 
end of 1 989 the Genoa com- 
plex will be the first port in the 
Mediterranean able to handle 
a million containers a year.

Attempts to break 
provincial habits 


If the region's economy has 
been in decline, so too has its 
political life in recent years. A 
former regional premier, 
Alberto Teardo, is one of a 
group of members of Bettino 
(Traxi's Socialist Party who 
have received court sentences 
for financial offences while in 
office. 

The regional authorities 
have a way to go if they are to 
break out of provincial habits 
and present lo the world an 
image of a modern and for- 
ward-looking Liguria in 1992. 
That is when they will cele- 
brate the discovery of America 
by Genoa's most illustrious 
son. Christopher Columbus. 

__ In the economy several 
firms stand out from the 
general air of decline, such as 
lialimpiami. a leading plant 
contractor, and Ansaldo, 
which has moved from con- 
ventional engineering into nu- 
clear equipment and other 
areas of high technology’. Both 
□re in the state-owned IRI 
(Istituto per la RJcostruzione 
Industrial?) group. 

Striking progress has been 
made by the port authority, it 
Consorzio Auionomo del Por- 
to di Genova, which adminis- 
ters Italy's biggest port, most 
of it on land reclaimed from 
the sea and including the 
airport and IRl's Comigliano 
steelworks.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY APRIL 16 1986 

ITALIAN REGIONS/4 m 


High tech in the south 


The region of ApuHa is evety- 
thing that one would not 
expect it to be, and fen- this 
reason it is creating an impor- 
tant role for itself in the 
development of the most ad- 
vanced form of Italian 


The stereotype impression 
of a southern region is that it 
suffer nbm a stagnant, largely 
agricultural soci«y with a few 
misplaced examples of heavy 
industry .which have foiled to 
fid d their feet in the arid 
southern soil. . This failure 
breeds a sullen resentment 
which helps to promote orga- 
nized crime. 

- Apulia refuses to conform 
to these preconceptions. To 
begin with the last, it was 
fortunate to escape the atten- 
tions of tire drag traffic orga- 
nizers. Mafia members now 
on trial in Palermo have given 
a detailed picture of how the 
drug traffic is organized in the 
smith, mainly in Sicily, Cala- 
bria and Campania. 

Apulia has been traditional- 
ly free of the grip of serious 
cr iminal associations such as 
the Mafia and the Camorra in 
the Naples area. . 

. Fortunately, the large-scale 
drag traffickers who saw the 
attractions of the region's 
■open and accessible beaches 
were .halted by a massive 
round-up of Mafia and Ca- 
morra suspects before their 
plans could be implemented, 
And so the scourge oforga- 
nized crime, which has done 


so mud) to block the econom- 
ic development of Calabria 
and ports of Sicily and Cam- 
pania, still has little place in 
Apulian life. 

Apulia is the south-eastern 
extremity of Italy, the most 
Mediterranean of tire main- 
land regions. Yet its regional 
policy is influenced fay tire 
conviction that the natural 
partner for the regions is the 
European Community, and 


\The principal artistic attrac- 
tions in Apulia have nothing 
to do with the Renaissance or 
very much to do with the 
glories of ancient Rome; they 
are the great Romanesque 
buildings, cathedrals and cas- 
tks, wntch are northern in 
style and associated in many 
cases with tire 13th century 
Hohensraufen ruler Frederick 

n. 

Although a German emper- 
or, he was brought up in 
southern Italy, mamly in Sici- 
ly, where he tearnt Arabic, was 
protected by the Saracen sol- 
diers in the way the British in 
India used the Gurkhas, 
aimed at muting Italy as part 
of his empire and felled 
because he incurred the Pope’s 
opposition. 

No greater-mentor could be 
found, however, for the idea of 
an Apulia (one of Frede rick's 
nicknames was “the boy from 
Apulia") closely integrated 
with Europe beyond the Alps. 

In dustriall y, Apulia is show- 
ing great interest in high 


technology. The tenon does 
pot belong mentally Mom the 
line dividing earth from 
south, if that is draws between 
northern prosperity and al- 
leged souzhem backwardness. 

Historically its ports were 
always imp o rtant commercial 
centres. Brindisi was tire end 
of the famous Via Appia 
highway from Rome. Bari was 
developed under Fascism as a 
port for the colonies and it is 
now the seat of the aimnal 
Levant Fair. 

This past, which has given ; 
much of Apulia a mental 
openness atypical of the south, 
means that the region has 
fitted easily into tire context of 
fffflppf iw? exp a n si on along the 
Adriatic Coast An east-west 
fine is now as appropriate as a 
north-south one in generaliz- 
ing about Italian economic 
growth because the Tyrrheni- 
an is undoubtedly behind the 
Adriatic in economic pr o gre ss. 
And so h is no surprise that 
Apulia has one of the cent r e s 
for propagating high technol- 
ogy in the south. It is called 
"Tecnopplis" and has its seat 
near Bari. 

“The regions need Europe- 
an government** was the es- 
sence of a recent speech in 
Tecnopoiis by Salvatore Fitto, 
head of the regional adminis- 
tration. He was arguing not 
just the European case but also 
the natural need that regions 
and Europe have for each 
other.

TYPICAL TUSCAN PURE 
OLIVE OIL (EXTRA VERGINE) 

DESERVES A BRIEF 
INTRODUCTION. 


l.oil 



Nature along with olives gave man 
the first oil... a nutriment which was 
“tested” for thousands of years by 
mediterranean populations. Thanks 
to its precious qualities, today it has 
been rediscovered as a staple of the 
“mediterranean diet”: its qualities 
make it the fat most similar to mo- 
ther’s milk. 


£ * OUrC When olives are cultivated and 
pickedwith particular care and crushed by mere 
pressure, with no chemical preparation at all, the 
resulting oil is absolutely pure: 
natural and genuine with 
no more than 1% acidity. 

This makes it suitable even 
for children and the elderly.

cooking alters nei-

its digestibility.

The French novelist, play-

provocative, wriiere of his 
generation, died yesterday. . 

According to his. own auto- 
biographical Journal du 
I'ofaiT, be was bora in the 
public . maternity, hospital in 
Paris on December 19. 1910.

GabricHe Genet and of an 
unknown father. 

Abandoned by -his mother 
at birth, be was. placed, at the 
age of seven, as a foster child 
with a peasant, family in Le 
Morvan. . 

There, according to his 
friend -amf biog ra pher. Jean- 
Pa ui Sartre, he began to steal 
to compensate, himself for 
being the only person in the 
viliage who did .not possess 
property of his own.. When 
caught, be refused to reform 
but instead, made what Sartre 
considers to have been the

1942, probably with the help 
of Jean Cocteau.

In -1942, while serving a 
sentence at Fresnes, Genet 
used the sheets ofbrown paper 
from which be was supposed 
to make paper bags to com- 
pose bis first novel, Notre 
Dame des Fleurs. The manu- 
script of this extraordinary 
evocation of the world of 
French criminals, prostitutes 
and homosexuals, was eventu- 
ally smuggled out of prison. 


criminal, wishing to obtain the 
status of a great evil-doer, 
murders one ofhis fellows in a 
condemned oeU, was pro- 
duced in the following year, 
but created such a storm of 
protest' that no new theatrical 
work by Genet was produced 
in France until Les Ntgres. in 
September 1959. 

Genet called it a clownerie 
on the theme of race relations 
and it had highly successful 
runs in both Pans and New 
York. 

In spite of this underwriting 
of tile colt of revolutionary 
violence, which Sartre was 


fats prose works 
until the early 1960s before 
being officially translated. 

Genet's works often reveal a 
far more critical attitude to 
evil than he himself officially 
adopted, and go some way to 
justify Cocteau's claim that it 
would one day be necessary to 
treat him as a moral iste. 

Whatever final judgment 
may be made on Genet's 
achievement as a writer, it is 
certainly true to say that not 
even the Marquis de Sade 
went further in exploring the 
potentialities and disappoint- 
ments ofeviL

The Hon Lady Betjeman, 
widow of Sir John Betjeman, 
the former Poet Laureate, and 
the author of several extreme- 
ly entertaining travel books, 
has died on tour in the 
Himalayas, aged 76. - 

Under her maiden name of 
Penelope Chetwode. she wrote 
fluently and sympathetically 
of her intrepid journeys which 
she undertook often at great 
personal risk. 

Penelope Valentine Hester 
Chetwode was the only daugh- 
ter of a senior Army officer 
who became Field Marshal the 
first Baron Chetwode and 
Commander-irt-Chief of the 
British Army in India. 

She established herself in 
youth as an unusual and 
attractive personality. loyaL 
amusing and enthusiastic, 
qualities that developed 
throughout a lifetime of dy- 
namic friendship and religious 
devotion. 

In 1933 she married John 
Betjeman (not without initial . 
misgivings from her parents), 
and for many years of their 
married life, until they derid- 
ed to live apart, her gifts of 
mind and character were com- 
plementary to his own. 

The contrast between the 
imperial glories of Delhi and

King Alfred's Kitchen, a tea 
room in Wantage - helped to 
bridge the gap. 

She inherited from her fa- 
ther a passionate interest in 
horses, and her mounts in- 
cluded the half-Arab grey 
gelding. Mott celebrated for- 
being almost a member of her 
household (and for assisting at 


a tea party given 
Berners at Faringdonl.’ 

While in India she had also 
picked up a widely ranging 
interest in Indian culture, 
architecture and religion, 
about which she was genuine- 
ly. and volublv. 
.knowledgeable. 

Her own religious quest 
took her through a period in 
which she shared her 
husband's Anglicanism, but 
by a long process which had 
started with a visit to .Assisi, 
she found her way into the 
Roman Catholic Church, be- 
ing received into its member- 
ship in 1948. 

Her devoutness had its 
unexpected aspects: as a frier^ 
once remarked (far from un- 
sympathetically K “Penelope is 
practising mysticism, but the 
kingdom of heaven is not 
taken by storm.” 

She was a fearless traveller 
her exploits resulted in the 
publication of 7"uv Middle- 
aged Ladies in Andalusia 
(1963) and Kulu. the End ot 
the Habitable World (1972) in 
which uncon vemionality of 
approach never disguises the 
knowledge and sympathy of 
her observation. 

She had a son and daughter, 
who survive her. 


SIR RONALD GOULD 


Sir Ronald Gould. General 
Secretary of the National 
Union of Teachers from 1947 
to 1970 and first president of 
the World Confederation of 
Organizations of the Teaching

His family background 
made it natural for him to take 
an early interest in local

His experience in local gov-

against foe crushing apathy

seemed uncertain, but this was 
wholly explicable in the limit-

to drive his members as

• The problem seems to be 
that this, is a “muttinationaT

homogenized and as tasteless 
as that other well known 
international commodity, air- 
line food. -The "most curious 
tact, however, is that the 
Italian film-makers them- 
selves should turn their own 
past into a tatty fairground 
burlesque. -• 

Not that contemporary pro- 
ductions emanating from a 
single country are necessarily 
a good idea: the new' series of 
Miami Vice (BBC1) relies 
upon pop music and upon 
popular imagery and manages 
at the same time to have the

It is difficult to imagine more 
provocative use of that balmy 
scrcnadcr. the wind ensemble, 
than that made by Nielsen in 
his 1922 Wind Quintet, or by 
Janacck in his sextet Slladi: 
The two works met head-on at 
Monday's BBC lunchtime 
concert; and for anyone who 
missed it- or who wants to

hymn-tones Nielsen *as com- 
posing at the time, is a not or 
the unpredictable, and was 
enjoyed as such. From toe 
raucous dannet, leaping . m 
gawky descending arpeggios, 
to the skirling flute and sere- 
nading horn, Nielse n fin ds as 
many ways as possible or 
ridiculing his theme and test- 
ing his' players' virtuosity. • 
At 70, youth obsessed Jana- 
cek — the torment of youth,

"celebration of the glad tran- 
sience of youth .-itself in this 
sextet “Youth, golden 


youth", the oboe sings at toe 
start; yet, typically, this osten- 
sibly Withe phrase is troubled 
and made ambiguous by toe 
harmonies rumbling below it 
in horn, bassoon and bass 
clarinet (Stephen Trier joined 
toe Quintet at this point). 

It was the Tuckwell’s 
achievement to keep alive toe 
co-existence of these con- 
trasts. nudging the works 
darting motives and registers 
from one mood to another, 
and drawing them together in 
the finale’s chiming assent.

an ungainly space with a 
cavernous high-ceilinged au-

Mitzi E Newhouse stage. 
John Dillinger's staging of the 
first major New York revival 
of Loot with Zoe Wanamaker

been such a hit that it is 
moving from the Manhattan

Ted, the pivotal character of 
Wesley Moore's play, is toe 
boss of a non-union factory 
that manufactures fibre-glass 
trays. Originally a pioneer 
concern, it has been overtaken 
by its competitors, a fact to 
which Ted doggedly shuts his 
eyes. 

The picture that this evokes 
is dramatic in the extreme. 
Imagine a factory floor seeth- 
ing with rumours of impend- 
ing bankruptcy, where every 
threat of industrial action is 
met with another wage-rise; 
where pay-cheques keep roll- 
ing in although toe trucks 
have long ceased to visit toe 
premises: and where, under 
the orders of an unseen propri- 
etor. the workers have trebled 
production even though there 
is nowhere to stack toe trays 
they have already made. 

I find that a most arresting 
image: and it tells you a lot 
about Mr Moore — and. alas, 
the American toeaire - that he 
has chosen merely to describe 
U. while setting toe play itself 
alongside toe pool of Teds 
private residence. Here, under 
toe eyes of his ghastly wife and 
a predatory neighbourhood 
widow, is enacted toe dreary 
old encounter between toe 
ageing bull and toe young 
siud: as embodied by Clay 
(William Hope), a quietly 
respectful quality-control 
overseer who comes to plead 
the workers' cause to their 
disaster-bound employer. 

Not that he makes much 
headway in that department. 
Within minutes of his arrival 
Beth (the neighbour) has got 
him rubbing sun-oil into her 
back: and. when he, does, 
manage to raise toe subject of 
his visit. Ted's response is to 
invite him to.a swimming race 
and supply an impromptu pair 
of trunks by slicing ofT his 
trouser-legs with garden 

shears. . . 

Mr Moore is big on toe 
svmbols. Dialogue is thick 
with references lo fertile sur- 
rounding land and the stag- 
nant ponds on Ted's estate. 
Ted is said to have driven his 
big fat plant into virgin 
icrritory.As for character, 
though, there is no more 
individuality than in an Ac- 
tion Man kiL Beth (Elizabeth 
Richardson) and Clay are 
there to show youth ana 
fertility triumphing over toe 


childless elders. , la. Ted's 
wife, gives Patricia Elliott toe 
pretext for delivering the en- 
tire British repertoire of the 
monster raid-western matri- 
arch. As for Ted, it is hard to 
tell whether he is intended as a 
captain of industry or a victim 
of marriage. As played by Don 
Fellows — an unmatched ex- 
ponent of the downtrodden 
American male - he cam« 
more weight when slumped 
despairingly over a copy of 
Nen-sweek than when gallop- 
ing into battle with the shears.

II barbiere di 
Siviglia 

Covent Garden 

On its fourth substantial 
change of casL Michael 
Hampe's production of II 
barhiere di Siviglia is begin- 
ning lo sparkle as it did not a 
year ago. when it was new. 
The stage business, some of it 
freshly-mimed, is now funnier 
and more brightly lit (though 
Peter Davison's towering sets 
remain irredeemably grev), 
and this cast is surely toe 
strongest yet. . 

The main revitalizing influ- 
ence. however, comes from 
toe pit. The Italian conductor 
Alberto Zedda may not run 
toe tightest of ships, and there 
were times when the rapport 
between players, singers and 
conductor seemed to hang 
precariously on the lone ting 
of a triangle. He may some- 
times let orchestral detail 
swamp the singers — not 
surprisingly since, as a leading 
Rossini scholar, it was he who 
rediscovered this score's irae 
instrumental colours. But 
these are minor penalties to 
pay for the excitement that 
Zedda instilled. It is difficult 
to imagine the chattering 
woodwind writing, and espe- 
cially the two piccolos' flighty 
runs, more sharply delineated, 
or the violas' offbeat giggles in 
Basilio's scandal-mongen ng 
aria imbued with a more 
sneering tone. 

This sense of exuberant 
momentum permeated toe 
stage too. Hampe's formerly 
rather heavy-handed point 
about Rosina being kept be- 
hind bars and bolts is now 
conveyed with slick farce. The 
Act 1 finales "freeze" [s all toe 
more efTeciive for being suc- 
ceeded by a wild, arm-waving 
ensemble' jig: a trifle juvenile, 
perhaps, but infectiously high- 
spirited. 


Opera 

That is precisely toe quality 
projected by Gino Quilicos 
Figaro. His “Largo al fac- 
totum" - sung straight out 
front, foot on toe prompt4x>x 
■ — — established the Canadian's 

ringing baritone, his excellent 
enunciation and his resource- 
ful repertoire of gestures. But 
it was in toe Act II machina- 
tions that his vivacious stage 
presence, replete with whoops 
and leaps, became folly 
established. 

Domenico Tri march i s vir- 
tuoso patter in “A un donor" 
was sometimes obscured by 
over-enthusiastic accompani- 
ment. but his fussy, comically 
preening Bartolo is now an 
admirably detailed character- 
ization. The contrast it made 
with this Figaro created a 
strong “youth versus age 
ambience that suited Ann 
Murray and David RendalL 
the new Rosina and Alma- 
viva. She wisely jettisoned 
customary pouting petulance 
in favour of an appealing. 
ingenue quality: a modern girl 
for whom old-fashioned re- 
strictions simply appear irrele- 
vant. Apart from some 
aggressive highmotes early on. 
her singing was immensely 
enjoyable. The coloratura was 
tucked in unobtrusively; the 
tone was shaded many differ- 
ent ways to suit situation, but 
was ai its best in a huskily 
sensuous middle register. 

Rendall lightened his tim- 
bre and also emerged with 
vocal honours, though his 
acting caught toe attention 
more. His drunken soldier 
perhaps sat on his axe once 
too often, ripping wheeze 
though it was. but in his abbe 
guise his parody of the more 
flowery school of pianism was 
spot-on. With Robert Lloyd 
providing a heavyweight Bas- 
ilic. and Jane Eaglen's Bertha 
chipping in with a lively Act II 
aria, this Barber now looks 
and sounds in good shape.

Peaceful 
protests at 
riot death 

By Gavin Beil 

A scries of largely peaceful 
protest demonstrations and 
religious ceremonies were 
staged in loyalist communities 
throughout Nonhem Ireland 
yesterday, following the death 
of Mr Keith White, aged 20. 
two weeks after being struck 
by a plastic bullet fired by 
police during rioting on Easter 
Monday. 

One of the biggest demon- 
strations was staged in Belfast 
where more than 500 workers 
assembled for a 20-minute 
religious service with strong 
political undertones. 

Ulster (Loyalist) Clubs 
chairman Alan Wright ad- 
dressed a similar crowd as- 
sembled at a war memorial in 
Pormdown about 100 yards 
from where Mr White was 
shot.

Lioness in a den

Breakthrough hope in 
kidnap family’s ordeal 


The family of Mrs Jennifer 
Guinness, who was kidnapped 
eight days ago. have been told 
by their security adviser that 
her ordeal at the hands of an 
armed gang may Iasi weeks 
(Richard Ford writes from 
Dublin). Yet speculation grew 
in Dublin last night that a 
breakthrough in the hum for 
the missing woman may occur 
within 24 hours. 

There was increased activi- 
ty involving Lhe Control Risk 
firm of security advisers at the 
family home in Howth. north 


of Dublin, as the latest dead- 
line for contacts from the gang 
passed with the silence 
unbroken. 

Representatives from the 
London-based company have 
been advising Mr John 
Guinness since last Wednes- 
day morning — only a few 
hours after Mrs Guinness, 
aged 48. was abducted from 
her home by armed and 
masked men demanding an 
lr£2 million (about £1.75 mil- 
lion) ransom. 


Mrs Thatcher arrived >es- 
terday in a Commons which 
was nunoured to be passion- 
ately indignant at her deci- 
sion lo allow US aircraft to fly 
to Libya from British bases 
and determined to call her to 
account. Was this the parlia- 
mentary occasion, wondered 
men grey in years and opin- 
ions. that would finally bring 
her down? 

As so often before, howev- 
er. she. proved to be a lioness 
in a den of Daniels. Every 
criticism from the Opposi- 
tion benches was turned away 
with remorseless logic, every 
hint of nervousness on the 
Tory benches was soothed 
away with painstaking expla- 
natioit- 

It was in the phony war of 
Prime Minister's question 
time that she won her essen- 
tial victory. Several Arabists, 
her natural opponents on the 
Tory benches, began confi- 
dently. They thought that she 
was altogether too hostile to 
terrorism. 

Mr Patrick MacNair-WiV- 
son (C. New Forest), for 
instance, complained that 
while the Palestinian prob- 
lem was unsolved, no action 
would stop "friendly Arab 
governments” from taking 
violent actions around the 
world. Apparently we have to 
grin and bear h. No doubt 
they are carried out in spirit 
of nm. 

The Prime Minister replied 
that she favoured the peace 
process, but that peaceful 
methods bad not reduced 
terrorism. 

She went on to point out to 
another Tory sceptic, who 
feared that terrorism would 
now escalate because of the 
attack on Libya, that terror- 
ism had been escalating dur- 
ing the period when peaceful 
methods were pursued. That 
was why the United States 
had finally exercised its. in- 
herent right of self-defence 
under Article 51 of the Unit- 
ed Nations Charter. 

Dr David Owen now . 
weighed in fresh ' from his 
televised lectures on interna- 
tional law. He thought that 
the President Reagan had an 
obligation to ask the UN 
Security Council to inter- 


vene. as Britain had done in 
the Falkland*. 

Mrs Thatcher said that the 
Security Council had already 
condemned terrorism - 
whereupon nothing much 
had happened. 

These brisk replies were 
visibN rallying support on 
the Tory side. And when Mr 
Jonathan Aitken (C. Thanct) 
began bv referring . to her 
“difficult" but totally correct 
decision” to support the US 
reprisal, there was a low 
rumble of Tory support. 

"She responded to it by 
asserting that it was 
"inconceivable” that a Brit- 
ish Government would refuse 
America assistance to protect 
its 330.000 US troops who 
were in Europe to protect 
Europeans against aggres- 
sion. 

A Labour MP. sensing that 
Mrs Thatcher was replying 
effectively to frontal assaults, 
tried subtlety. Since the 
.Americans bad all those jets 
on aircraft carriers,, he won- 
dered. why had she granted 
permission for the land-based 
F Ills to be used? That 
produced a subtle reply in 
mum. The F 1 1 Is were more 
accurate aircraft liable to hit 
their targets with the least 
harm to civilians and least 
collateral damage: Her per- 
mission — ran the implica- 
tion - might have saved lives 
Most of Mrs Thatcher's 
main themes had been estab- 
lished at this point. The US. 
as a loyal ally helping to 
defend " Europe, deserved 
British support: the evidence 
for GadanVs involvement in 
terrorism was massive: 
peaceful methods had not 
persuaded Gadaffi to aban- 
don terrorism: and to contin- 
ue to rely entirely on them in 
these circumstances would 
mean being supine and pas- 
sive - before the terrorist 
threat She reiterated these 
points in her full statement 
Mr Kinnock rose - and 
embarked on a criticism of 
Mrs Thatcher's role in the 
Westland case. Had she con- 
sulted the Cabinet Commit- 
tee? Were Ministers in her 
confidence on this? Did the i . 
Foreign Secretary know? And j*® 
so on and so forth. It was all 
very uninteresting.

An estimated £4.7 billion 
was. wiped off the value of 
British Slock Exchange, com- 
panies yesterday as-the impact 
oi the Libyan crisis spread 
waves of uncenaihry through 
tne stock market 

Both the FT 30 index and 
the broad er-hased" FT-SE I0O 
mdex fell by more than 28 
points while the chaos in- 
duced by the Libyan situation 
was felt in all sectors" of the 
market 

Brokers reported heavy 
profit taking precipitated by 
the uncertainty overhanging 
the market Mr Kenneth Levy, 
ofCapel Cure Myers, said: 
“The natural gut reaction is to 
take profits more rapidly than 
one would otherwise do and 
not to go into the maikei if 
one was at . all hesitating 
whether to do so.” 

Other factors affecting share 
prices yesterday were the £406 
million Saatchi & Saatchi 
rights issue and worries that 
there were more rights is sues 
to come to finance the wave of 
takeover ■ activity, thereby 
soaking up institutional 
liquidity. 

There was also the feeling 
that favourable economic fac- 
tors such as low energy costs 
and the expected fall in inter- 
est rates would be adversely 
affected. 

In contrast. Wall Street 
showed more resilience. The 


By Lawrence Lever and Richard Lander 


Dow Jones industrial average 
index recouped an initial drop 
in prices caused by profit- 
taking from worried-Briiish 
' institutions. 

Dealers said that the 
“Rambo mentality'* qf Ameri- 
can investors made them 
more optimistic about the 
Libyan situation. The feeling 
was that President Reagan had 
finally given investors what 
they wanted. 

On the international money 
markets, the US raid brought a 
swift bnt short-lived Blip to 
both the dollar- and gold. 

The dollar rose sharply on 
the thin Far Eastern foreign 
exchanges after the first news 


of the strike, gaining almost 
four pfennigs to touch 
"DM2.3460 at one stage and 
rising to 1.9560 Swiss francs 
from 1.9310 at the close of 
business in New York. Some 
further dollar buying was seen 
when markets opened in Eu- 
rope but soon evaporated as 
traders took stock of the 
situation. 

The announcement of a 0.5 
per cent drop in US March 
industrial output during the 
afternoon also hurt the dollar. 
By the end of a busy day in 
London it had fallen back to 
DM2.3120 and 1.9352 Swiss 
francs. 

Sterling, by contrast, stood 


firm against the dollar and 
spent most of the day trading 
around SI .48. closing 0.3 cents 
weaker than last night at 
Si. 4787. The weakness of the 
continental currencies helped 
the pound rise to DM3.4550 at 
one stage but it later slipped 
back to 3.4250 

The pound's trade-weighted 
index shed 0.2 on the dav to 
76.2. 

On the bullion market, gold 
mirrored the dollar's early- 
advance by adding about S3 to 
S545 an ounce, but interest 
soon evaporated. 

By the end of business gold 
was quoted at about S542.50, 
just Si up 


Opec studies new output quotas 


A new system of o3 oatpot 
quotas linked closely to sea- 
sonal demand patterns is now 
trader dhensskra by the 13 
members of the Organfeatioc 
of Petroteom Exporting Coun- 
tries. 

Indications emerged yester- 
day that even if tike new quotas 
were agreed on daring the 
meeting hare, they would not 
come into fines antfl late Jane 
or July and this would do little 
to force ap. world oD prices; oil 
traders monitoring the meet- 
ing said. . 

Opec takes the view that the 
o3 market has afready taken 


From David Young, Geneva 
prices down to a level which 
can be snstained until the 
summer when consuming na- 
tions plan autumn and winter 
restocking. 

By delaying the adoption of 
new oatpot levels antfl then, 
the current demand for the oil 
weapon to be ased against the 
US will have been dealt with 
and individual beads of state 
can approve the new quotas. 

Sovereign control over out- 
put levels b as consistently 
been a s tumbling block 

Any variation on the Opec 
production agreement will de- 
pend on the attitude taken by 


Saadi Arabia which in the past 
cat back its production when 
demand feiL 

The new system will depend 
on each country accepting a 
higher and lower level of 
output so demand can be 
matched more accurately to 
the revenue demands of the 
producing countries. 

The new system will also 
involve the five oon-Opec 
countries who attended the 
carfel's last meeting — Mexi- 
co, Egypt, Malaysia, Angola 
and Oman — accepting a cut ta 
their total combined daily 
output of 500,000 barrels. 


Guinness heads for victory 
in battle for Distillers 


Guinness was 
heading for victory in the 
bitter four-and-a-half-month- 
old battle for control of Distill- 
ers. the Scotch whisky group. 

■With just three days left 
before the epic £2.7 billion 
takeover fight comes to a 
close. Guinness bas built up a 
commanding lead over its 
rival. Mr James ■ Gulliver’s

DoT investigation at 
Henry Ansbacher 

J By Oar Banking Correspondent 


The Department of Trade 
and Industry confirmed yes- 
terday that it was conducting 
an investigation ' into Henry 
Ansbacher, the merchant 
bank, covering the period 
when it was headed by Lord 
Williams, now a leading eco- 
nomic adviser to the Labour 
Pany. 

Lord Williams left the bank 
last year." with a golden hand- 
shake of about £100.000, after 
Ansbacher .plunged £3i mil- 
lion into -loss after making a 
small profit the year before. 

He now advises Mr Roy 
Haitersley; Labour's deputy 
leader, and is also a financial 
adviser to the publisher. Mr 
Robert Maxwell 

The DTI investigation fo- 
cuses on the purchase of the 
broking firm, Laidlaw & Peck, 


in 1984 for $15 million. 
Within months big losses 
emerged at the firm which was 
sold back to its management 
early last year at a cost of £1 3 
million in write-offs to 
Ansbacher. 

Last year the new manage- 
ment of Ansbacher reported to 
shareholders that an interim 
dividend payment of £500.000 
in 1984 should not have been 
paid because the company 
could not afford it. 

■ The report said that the 
bank's management at the 
time had not given an accurate 
picture to shareholders of the 
company's financial position. 

Ansbacher was rescued 
from collapse by Pargesa, the 
Belgian banking group, and 
Mr Richard Fenhalls took 
over as managing director. 


Savoy profits up 32%

The influx of American L51.8 million to almost £60

Spending on repairs and 
maintenance increased to £4.9

Berkeley dining room.

32 percent to £10.7 million in 
1985. 

Mr Giles Shepard, manag-

Desmond Pitcher: returns ' 
still “unsatisfactory" 

Littlewoods 
profit up 
by £11.7m 

By Richard Lander 

The Littlewoods Organis- 
ation. Britain's largest private 
company, lifted pretax profits 
from £54.5 million to £66.2 
million last year with the 
group's troubled chain store 
network showing signs of be- 
ginning to turn the comer after 
several stagnant years. 

A refurbishment pro- 
gramme, coupled with a ratio- 
nalization of lines, helped the 
chain store side increase prof- 
its from £7.2 million to £12.6 
million with sales rising by 
£18 million to £481 million. 

However, Mr Desmond 
Pitcher, the chief executive, 
de sen bed the return on sales 
as still “most unsatisfactory” 
and said he wanted the current 
2,6 per cent level raised to 
“something approaching 10 
per cent”. 

By comparision. British 
Home Stores, which 
Littlewoods regards as its 
main rival in the high street, 
recorded an 8.9 percent return 
on sales in its last annual 
results. 

Apart from the store over- 
haul programme, which costs 
around £500.000 a shop and 
has so far covered 77 of the 
group's 108 stores. 
Littlewoods is also expanding 
on the high street with its new 
Inside Story chain of house- 
hold furnishing shops. The 
first store opened its doors in 
York last month and another 
nine are scheduled to start 
business in 1986. The compa- 
ny has also opened its first 
catalogue shop, similar to 
those pioneered by Argos. 

The mail order division, 
which increased profits from 
£36.7 million to £41.2 million, 
is also diversifying with two 
new speciality catalogues. 


Cunard to manage luxury

Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 

Lloyds persists with a 
sub-Standard offer 


After the anticipation built up 
during last week's phoney war be- 
tween Lloyds and Standard Char- 
tered. the bid. when it finally came 
yesterday, looked rather disappoint- 
ing. Lloyds had hung back for a full 
week, saying that it was wailing for 
the publication of Standard's official 
reports and accounts, while 
Standard's share price rose and the 
market began to assume that Lloyds 
must be concocting a more tempting 
offer than its original suggestion. 
Lloyds was not Yesterday's bid is 
exactly what the bank had always said 
it would be: 750p per share split 
roughly equally between cash and 
convertible preference shares. 

Standard's shares prompiy fell 20p 
to 854p — though, to be fair, the 
whole sector weakened along with the 
rest of the market yesterday. That stiff 
leaves Standard's price more than a 
pound above Lloyds's offer which 
partly accounts for the market's lack 
of enthusiasm over the bid. The other 
reason was that both the offer and the 
alternative include such a high 
proportion of convertible preference 
shares: 16 for ever four standard 
shares in each case, to be precise. 

Lloyds is. after all. asking investors 
to swallow a big idea. This would, if 
successful, be the biggest takeover in 
British banking history creating the 
largest UK bank in asset terms with 
assets of w ell over £70 billion. Nor is 
it an obvious move. Of all the 
potential suitors for Standard. Lloyds 
had never been mentioned until it 
presented the idea ten days ago. 

Lloyds argues that Standard would 
bring it a group of domestic banking 
operations across the world which 
Lloyds itself cannot enter because of 
restrictions in many countries. The 
combined bank would be able to offer 
unrivalled trade fianance and foreign 
exchange sendees, it claims. It would 
also be able to make valuable lax 
savings on its UK earnings as a result 
of the takeover and achieve econo- 
mies of scale by rationalising sys- 
tems. premises and overheads. 

Michael McWilliams, chief general 
manager of Standard, predictably 
tags the commercial logic argument 
as being “facile". “Lloyds has not got 
the remotest idea of how to develop 
overseas businesses," he insists and 
accuses his adversaries of being 
arrogant domestic UK bankers who 
think they know how to do 
everything. 

The situation looks curious. On the 
face of it. Standard has more to gain 
from a link with Lloyds — above all a 
profitable UK retail operation which 
it desperately needs. Lloyds, how- 
ever, is planning to take on an ” old- 
fashioned" international bank with 
an undistinguished earnings record 
and an embarrassingly large exposure 
to South Africa. 

Quite clearly, both sides have a lot 
of explaining to do to shareholders 
and the stockmarket in general, both 
to clarify their plans and to justify 
their attitudes in the current situa- 


tion. In the meantime the market 
remains confident that another bid- 
der will soon appear and that Lloyds 
will have to raise its offer. The Bank 
of England seems prepared to allow at 
least a two cornered fight between 
Standard and Lloyds, and possibly a 
three cornered fight if another contes- 
tant came in 

Berrill makes sense 

The report of Sir Kenneth Benin's 
working party into the corporate 
structure at Lloyd's is remarkably 
uncon troversial. in sharp contrast 
with the formation of the working 
party last September. The former 
chief executive of Lloyd's, Ian Hay 
Davison, resigned because he saw it 
as a threat to his independent 
position. No sooner had he resigned 
than Lloyd's announced that the 
terms ot reference of the chief 
executive would not be changed. 

The working party still had plenty 
with which to occupy itself. Although 
Mr Davison, in his action-packed 
three years at Lloyd's, made great 
strides in establishing a new regu- 
latory framework and bringing past 
offenders to book, he made less 
progress in improving the admin- 
istration. One of the main reasons for 
Sir Kenneth’s working party was the 
embarrassing £22 million accounting 
error discovered in Lloyd’s accounts 
last year. The administration was 
clearly not functioning as it should. 

The Berrill report recommends a 
streamlining exercise to reduce the 
number of lines of communication to 
the chief executive and to stop trivial 
matters going to the top. The 
reduction in the number of commit- 
tees and delegation of work to senior 
staff will, however, mean more staff 
and higher gradings: a sure call for 
more grumbling among the mem- 
bers. The recommendations, which 
have in the main been accepted by 
the Council of Lloyd’s, would free the 
chairman, the two elected deputy 
chairmen and committee of Lloyd's 
from some of their present workload, 
and should cut out duplication. 

The report makes excellent sense, 
as far as it goes. It does not have any 
remedies for potential clashes be- 
tween an executive chairman and 
chief executive, as happened when 
Mr Davison was endeavouring to 
steer the ship. His successor. Alan 
Lord, is happy to operate alongside a 
chairman, whose more ambas- 
sadorial role will leave the day to day 
administration to the chief executive. 
That is the essential nature of the 
contract. 

Sir Patrick Neill's present inquiry 
into regulatory arrangements at 
Lloyd's will doubtless take into 
account the changes proposed by Sir 
Kenneth’s working party. Sir 
Patrick's brief is wide and if he did 
not feel enough had been done he 
would, presumably, not hesitate to 
recommend that Lloyd's be brought 
under the authority of a higher body. 
For such is the mood of the moment

In announcing pretax profits' 
of £53.6 million for the year 
to Etecember 1985. Tavlor 
Woodrow is celebrating' 25 
yews^of unbroken profits 
growth. The dividend was 
bumped up by 15 percent on 
top or a 22 per cent increase 
last year. 

The shares are now on a 
gross yield or 4.2 per cent 
compared with the market 
yield of 3.7 per cent. 

These are the bare statistics 
reflecting not only a distin- 
guished past but also signal- 
ling a promising future. Both 
the irreplaceable Lord Taylor 
and new chairman, Frank 
Gibb, are acutely aware that’ 
TW has to evolve if it is. to re- 
main profitable and, in an age 
of takeovers, independent. 

Thus the contracting divi- 
sion. which accounts for 35 
per cent of. profit, is now 
regarded as a steady contribu- 
tor rather than a growth area. 
Profits are likely to fluctuate 
around the: current level de- 
pending on the status of 
major contracts. In fiiture. 
the divisions which are likely 
to grow fastest are bouse 
building and property. . 

Housing had an excellent 
year in 1985. when 1.500 
houses were built and sold. 
Pretax profit rose by 17 per 
cent from £12 million to £14 
million. 

The company's land bank 
is geographically well spread 
with many prime sites, and it 
expects house completions 
and profits in 1986 to show 
some increase on 1985. 
helped by falling interest and 
mortgage rates. 

The group has a £309 
million property portfolio 
which is revalued every year. 
In 1985 alone, it increased by 
£46 million of which £38 
million was a gain on 
revaluation. 

As a reflection of the degree 
of importance this segment of 
the group's activities has 
achieved, gains on sales of 
investment properties are no 
longer treated as extraordi- 
nary profits but are included 
above the line. In 1985. 
pretax profit from property 
was £16.3 million of which 
£3.7 million were gains on 
disposals. 

Clearly, the size of such 
gains depends on what is sold 
and this item can be expected 
to fluctuate widely. 

In 1985 £7.9 million, or 
nearly 15 per cent of Tavlor 
Woodrow’s preta» profit, was 
earned in the Middle-East- In , 
1984. it was 22 per. cent, The • 
fail in the oil prire will-mean 
that business generated in 
these areas win decline 
further. 

The group is confident that 
the benefits to non-oil econo- 
mics will outweigh the loss of 


buying power in the Middle 
East and that it will-gain 
business elsewhere' to 
compensate. 

. The share price of 58 Ip 
implies a prospective earn- 
ings multiple of around 1 1 
times assuming an earnings 
increase next year similar to 
this year's. . This is not a 
demanding rating for a com- 
pany with the track record of 
Taylor Woodrow and the 
shares look like a sound 
investment, when compared 

with a frothy market 

Bowater 

Bo water Industries’ results for 
1985, announced yesterday, 
were , so disappointing that 

some market men were driven 
to question the logic of the 
demerger From Bowater Incor- 
porated, effected in 1984. 

Though Bowater Industries 
has been able to reduce its 
dependence on the bulk paper 
and pulp markets to just ! 5 
per cent of sales, and it has 
made a number of acquisi- 
tions, there is little to show for 
the change, so far. . 

The company did its best to 
counter the disappointment 
with an increased final divi- 
dend of 5.5p, up from 5p. This 
was no doubt intended to 
buoy the share price, a particu- 
lar concern with Hanson Trust 
sitting on an 11.7 per cent 
stake. It was not enough 
however to take, attention 
away from the profits fall from 
£35.7 million to £314 million 
before tax. 

The company said last 
year's profits would have been 
£5.2 million higher but for 
exchange rate movements. 

The result was also hit by 
problems at two American 
companies. Cam vac, the spe- 
cialized packaging business, 
which lost .more than £4 
million, and a new freight 
forwarding operation which 
lost £700.000. 

Below the line there was a 
£11.9 million extraordinary 
charge and shareholders' 
funds were also dented by an . 
£8.5 million write-off of good- 
will and the effect of exchange 
rate movements which cost a- 
further £15 million: - 

Last year Bowater spem £24 
million on acquisitions but 
their contribution, net of the 
effect of disposals, was less 
than £1 million before financ- 
ing costs. While Bowater .In- 
dustries Still has to J>roye 
iiself. it should be given mofe . 
time. At 303p the shares yield ; 
ah above averagd^.ipaftent . 
and takeover speculation fs in 
the price for nothing. 

Glaxo Holdings 

Interim results from Glaxo 
Holdings yesterday quite 
properly brought attention 


back to its excellent trading 
record from the political row 
about taxing American De- 
positary Receipts. 

Its shares have suffered in 
recent weeks from fears about 
the effect of the proposed tax. 
but yesterday that worry was 
forgo Lien - and the shares 
gained 20p to £10.60. 

Reported profits rose by 34 
.per cent to £259.8 million, 
but the increase would have 
been as much as 50 per cent if 
not for exchange rate move- 
ments. And that rise was 
achieved despite a £12 mil- 
lion charge above the line 
representing the costs of re- 
calling Farley’s goods after 
the salmonella scare. 

Group sales rose by 15.8 
per cent to £685.5 million, 
but again the increase would 
have been higher if not for the 
vagaries of currencies. The 
underlying increase in turn- 
over was 30 percent. With no 
price increases to speak of the 
increase reflects volume 
gains. . . 

The biggest sales increase 
was in the United States, 
where turnover rose by 80 per 
cent to S286 million (£194 
million}. 

Fears that demand for 
Zantac would soon start to 
slow now look premature, in 
the first half sales rose by 34 
per cent, but it looks as if 
other product areas are now 
growing as quickly. As a 
result Zantac is unlikely to 
increase in importance to the 
group . but that still leaves it 
accounting for 45 per cent of 
group sales. 

One side effect of Zantac’s 
success is a huge cash pile, 
now nudging £400 million. 
While other companies might 
be tempted to use such funds 
for * diversification. Glaxo 
only plans to make acquisi- 
tions which would boost its 
existing business. 

So the cash pile is likely to 
continue growing, which 
presents something of a long- 
term problem as the return 
on cash holdings is far less 
than Glaxo extracts from its 
trading assets. 

This docs not, however, 
explain the anomaly of 
Glaxo's rating. Assuming 
profits /each £520 million 
this year they arc trading on 
22.5 times earnings. But 
Wellcome., the latest arrival

FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 


THE TIMES WEDNESDAY APRIL 16 1986 


Gilts ‘best 
deal if 
inflation 
rises’ 

By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent 

Index-linked gilts would be a 
better hedge against infla tion 
than property shares if infla- 
tion were to rise again. This 
could happen, for example, if 
Labour won the next General 
Election. 

That" is the view of the 
property analysts at W Green- 
well & Co. the stockbroker. 

The market capitalization 
of index-linked gilts and prop- 
erty shares is roughly equal at 
£9 billion. Greenwell argues 
the time is right to compare 
them. 

Property has traditionally 
been regarded as an inflation 
hedge but. at first glance, 
index-linked gilts, which came 
into being m March 1981, 
appear to have been a more 
effective hedge. 

The stockbroker says lead- 
ing property shares have out- 
performed index-linked gilts 
since the beginning of 1984 by 
an average of 33 per cent, 
measured on the baas of 
market price performance. 
And shares have proved to be 
mare volatile than gilts, giving 
investors trading as well as 
investment opportunities. 

Greenwell finds most 
quoted property companies 
have achieved progressive in- 
creases in net asset value 
above the rate of inflation, due 
to equity considerations such 
as management, gearing and 
exposure overseas, rather than 
inflation proofing. In contrast, 
index-linked gilts are of di- 
minishing interest to investors 
as inflation falls, as this is their 
key characteristic. 

If Labour were to return to 
power and inflation once 
again moved into double fig- 
ures. the stockbroker argues 
that both index-linked gilts 
and properly shares would 
appreciate but that gilts would 
provide a better investment 
opportunity. 


Hanson Trust poised 
to shake up 
the cigarette market 


By Derek Hants 
Industrial Editor 
Britain's tobacco manufactur- 
ers. facing steeper sales de- 
clines this year, are bracing 
themselves for a likely shake- 
up in the market when Han- 
son Trust fully takes over 
Imperial Group- 
Imperial Tobacco is still the 
largest single part within the 
group and is Britain's largest 
tobacco manufacturer, with 
about 42 per cent of the 
country’s cigarette market Its 
brands include John Player 
Special. Superkings. Embassy. 
Regal and Lambert & Butler. 

During the bid battle for 
Imperial. Lord Hanson, its 
chairman, has been careful not 
to commit Hanson Trust to 
any detailed moves at Imperi- 
al. Hanson has h3d approach- 
es for the various parts of the 
group whose other biggest 
interests are brewing (with 
Courage) and leisure as well as 
food (Ross and Youngs foods. 
Golden Wonder crisps). 

But Lord Hanson has said 
he would look to correcting 
Imperial’s decline in cigarette 
market share as well as "bring- 
ing its pubs into the twentieth 
century." He has also indicat- 
ed that Imperial is being 
bought as a commercial con- 
cern and that the intention 
was to run it in that way. 

On cigarettes the new Han- 
son strategy could be to move 
in two main directions. One 
would be to spend more on 
advertising and promotions, 
the other to cut prices. 

Imperial probably spends 
less on press advertising rela- 
tive to its sales than some 
competitors, but this appears 
to reflect its portfolio of well 
established brands. On high 
promotion brands it tends to 
spend about the same as its 
competitors. 

Ail manufacturers are re- 
stricted in their spending on 
poster, cinema and some mag- 



Lord Hanson: New look 
for Imperial pubs 
azine advertising, while there 
is also a ceiling on cash going 
to sports sponsorship. 

Imperial has been develop- 
ing game promotions, with 
prizes ranging from a Caribbe- 
an cruise to flights on Con- 
corde. Like other 
manufacturers Imperial also 
uses special price promotions. 

The result this past year has 
been to stabilize the Imperial 
market share overall. In the 
early Seventies imperial bad 
about 70 per cent of the 
cigarette market, but when 
EEC-derived tax changes fa- 
voured king-size cigarettes in 
1978 the hitherto highly 
priced Benson and Hedges 
Special Filter, manufactured 
by Gallaher. became Britain's 
best selling cigarette, a leader- 
ship it still holds. 

With Imperial's main 
brands then being the disad- 
vantaged smaller cigareties 
other more established king- 
sized brands from makers like 
Rothman also made big in- 
roads into the market. 

By I9S0 Imperial's market 
share was down to 52 per cent, 
compared with Gallaher at 29 
percent, in 1984 Imperial was 
at 43 per cent and Gallaher 33 

Both slipped a percentage 
point last year as all the British 
makers faced increased com- 


petition from the rising tide of 
cheap imports, mainly from 
West Germany's industry 
with its overcapacity 
problems. 

Many brands in the growi 
own-label sector are suppli 
from Germany, but it is also 
the source of Dorchester, the 
low price R J Reynolds brand. 
Last May the low-price sector 
accounted for about 9 per cent 
of the market, but this has 
come back to about 7 per cent 
as British makers fought back. 
Imperial re-launched its Lam- 
bert & Butter brand at a lower 
price and Gallaher brought in 
Berkeley. 

Imperial now has seven 
brands among the lop 10 
cigarette sellers. Its big success 
has been Superkings. Britain's 
second best selling brand and 
clear leader in tbe larger than 
king size market which is now 
the main growth sector in 
cigarettes apart from own- 
labeL 

The industry also faces a 
bigger overall slide in sales 
this year than last after the lip 
Budget tax on a packet of 20. 

Imperial has been putting 
through a hefty rationalization 
plan, which since 1982 has 
reduced its workforce in to- 
bacco manufacturing, includ- 
ing while collar staff, from 
14.000 to 9.500. 

The main object was finally 
to amalgamate the old em- 
pires of Bristol-based W D & 

H O Wills and John Player 
with headquarters at Notting- 
ham. 

Factory rationalizations 
culminated last June in the 
closure of a Newcastle upon 
Tyne factory when it was 
announced that another 1,700 
jobs would go over two and a 
half years. 

Imperial's two main 
retie factories are Hartcli 
Bristol and the Horizon facili- 
ty in Nottingham. Both have 
been in production only a 
little over 10 years.

Railways selloff puts 
Japanese line to test 



Japan’s privatization pro 
gramme, which has success- 
fully transferred Nippon Tele- 
graph & Telephone and the 
state tobacco monopoly to the 
private sector, faces its tough* 
est testyeL 

The heavily loss-making 
Japanese National Railways is 
to be broken up and privatized 
by April 1987. 

Unlike privatization in Brit- 
ain, which has so far only 
involved profitable public cor- 
porations, (here is no short- 
term revenue gain to cloud the 
ideological question of reduc- 
ing the size of the public 
sector. 

“We are foil owing Dr 
Friedman's ideas," Mr Mes- 
umi Ezaki, the deputy prime 
minister, told foreign journal- 
ists. “We wish to transfer as 
much as possible of the public 
sector to the private sector."

Early retirement is to be 
offered to 20.000. another

companies, and the remaining 

41.000 will receive naming

Millions 
‘wasted on 
housing’ 

The Government could be 
pouring millions of pounds 
down the drain by rehabilitat- 
ing inner city housing built 
over the past 30 years, only for 
it to deteriorate again, Judith 
Huntley writes. 

This hard-hitting message 
came from Dr Alice Coleman, 
of King’s College Land Re- 
search Unit, London, at a 
Cambridge conference of 
chartered building surveyors. 

Dr Coleman is renowned 
for her work on land use in 
Britain and for her uncompro- 
mising views. 

She told the conference that 
the Department of the 
Environment’s approach to 
inner city housing estates did 
not have a lasting effect. 

Research from her unit at 
King's showed that design was 
more destructive for the envi- 
ronment of an estate than 
socio-economic conditions. 
Refurbishing estates, improv- 
ing their security and manage- 
ment were not enough in 
themselves. 

Dr Coleman argued that 
design was the root cause of 
many problems. "The incor- 
poration of design improve- 
ment into a scheme gives a 
much better chance of success 
than any restoration or man- 
agement improvement

Later, shares in these re-

ed. However, according to Mr 
Ezaki. in the early stages the 
companies arc likely to re- 
quire state subsidies, partly to 
compete with existing private 
sector railways. Private and 
local authority railways cany 
40 per cent of rail passengers 
in Japan. 

Japan's privatization pro- 
gramme differs from that of 
Britain in another important 
respect It is accompanied by 
much greater moves towards 
competition. 

On the privatization of 
NTT in April last year, the 
domestic telephone market 
was opened up to competition 
with five other companies ^

companies are allowed to 
lease circuits from NTT and 
offer telephone services. 


Austin sells for Peugeot 
in bid to keep foothold 


Austi o-Raver is doing its 
best in Japan — for the French 
motor industry. Tbe state- 
owned British car manufac- 
turer is now selling the 
Peugeot 20S in Japan, David 
Smith writes. 

The decision to do so is 
hardly the most obvious way 
of reducing Britain’s massive 
imbalance on motor vehicle 
trade with Japan. For Austin- 
Rover, it is based on the need 
to keep a toehold in the 
Japanese market and at the 
same time work on developing 
the right distribution system. 

Japan is the motor in- 
dustry’s equivalent of selling 
ice to the Eskimos. While 
imports have been increasing 
at nearly 20 per cent a year 
over the past two years, last 
year's total was only 50,172, 
just over 1 per cent of the total 
market. 

According to Mr David 
Broome. Auslin-Rover’s mar- 
keting manager for Japan, 
imported cans need certain 
qualities to succeed in the 
Japanese market of which the 
most important is ind- 
ividuality. 

The Peugeot 205 appears to 
have this quality, Mr Broome 


said, and it win not compete 
directly with the Mini, Austin- 
R over’s most notable success 
in Japan. 

Austin-Rover sold 1,626 
Minis in Japan last year, 
making it the best selling small 
imported car. Under an agree- 
ment just signed with 
Nishimeo, a Japanese finance 
company, sales of 3,000 Minis 
are virtually guaranteed over 
the next two years. 

Tbe deal also involves the 
probable setting up of a 50- 
dealer network for Austin- 
Rover. 

The only other car from the 
Austin-Rover range being 
marketed in Japan is the MG 
Maestro, although the compa- 
ny has high hopes for the 
Rover 800. to be produced 
jointly with Honda. 

At the Ministry of Interna- 
tional Trade and Industry 
(Miti), BMW is held up as the 
example for all importers. Mr 
Kazuo Wakugi. vice-minister 
at Miti, said it has successfully 
penetrated the Japanese mar- 
ket through good products, 
good distribution and success- 
ful marketing. 

However, part of BMW's 


success is undoubtedly ex- 
plained by the fact that it has 
captured the whim of a certain 
sector of the Japanese market 
in the same way that it has 
managed to appeal to young 
men on high salaries in the 
City of London. 

Mercedes-Benz has achiev- 
ed the same sort of success, at 
the expense of Jaguar, among 
cider, wealthy Japanese.

Call for 
forum 
on roads 

By Edward Townsend 

Industrial Correspondent 

Leaders of Britain's civil 
engineering contractors have 
urged the establishment of a 
non-political forum to assess 
the work needed to update and 
repair the nation's infra- 
structure. 

Mr James Stevenson, vice- 
president of the Federation of 
Civil Engineering Contrac- 
tors. said the Government was 
manipulating the facts to show 
large amounts of additional 
work on roads and sewers 
were not needed and would 
not create many extra jobs. 

But with the buildeni also 
having a vested interest, the 
country needed a national, 
non-party political, neutral 
body to study the issue, he told 
the federation's Yorkshire sec- 
tion annual dinner. 

He criticized the 
Government's claim that in- 
creased infrastructure spend- 
ing was just "feshionable”. 
and said a recent public 
opinion poll conducted by the 
federation showed ihe elector- 
ate was anxious to see much 
more construction activity.

Taiwan finds that forgers 
are bad for business 


By Simon Scott Plummer 

The largest Taiwanese mis- 
sion ever to visit Britain 
arrives in London today on 
the fourth leg of a six-nation 
tour of Europe. One of its aims 
is to attract British investment 
to Taiwan, something which, 
the mission will argue, could 
be of mutual benefit. 

The investor is offered a 
cheap and well-educated 
workforce, an increasingly af- 
fluent local market and a 
springboard for exports to a 
region whose economy is 
growing fastest of any in the 
world. The host country can 
take advantage of imported 
know-how as it seeks to 
upgrade the technological lev- 
el of its industry. 

British companies are no 
doubt familiar with the eco- 
nomic achievements of Tai- 
wan. They are also aware ofits 
reputation as a counterfeiting 
centre. 

Fake motor parts (including 



Those found guilty of coun- 
terfeiting trademarks can re- 
ceive up to five years in jail 
and/or a fine of NTS 150.000 
(£2.550). For patent and copy- 
right infringement the maxi- 
mum penalty is a three-year 
sentence and/or a 
NTS 1 20.000 fine. 

What effect has all this had? 
To the casual observer in 
Taipei, it appears very little. 
Fake Rolex, Cartier and Piaget 
watches may not be displayed 
as prominently as before but 
they are readily available un- 
der the counter. Likewise, you

"1 Having gone along with this 

situation for years, the Gov- 
ernment in Taipei has at last 
begun to take action to rectify 
it. Pressure from overseas, 
particularly the United States, 
and the need for foreign 
technology to help to restruc- 
ture Taiwanese industry have 
brought about a change of 
attitude. 

The trademark law was 
amended last November to 
give full protection to trade- 
marks registered in Taiwan. 

- r £-^'- Wan 8- econom- 

icaflatrs ministry’s anii-coun- 
lerfeitmg committee, told The 
Times that even if a foreign 
company failed to register its 
trademark in Taipei, the Gov-

fake versions ofits products to 
countries where it had 
registered- i 

The copyright law was simi- ■ 
larly amended last July to 1 
protect books with foreign 1 
copyright . 

A draft amendment of the 1 
patent law is making its way f 
through the system and will a 
probably lake a year or two to 1 
reach the statute book. At s 
present, the law does not cover v 
chemicals or medicines.

ents not previously intro- A 
duced into Taiwan are **i 
protected for three years, com- a I 
pared with 15 years’ cover for ft 
products other than chemicals s >

In Europe the steps being

welcomed but judgements on 
their effectiveness are mixed.

Clearly Parliament in passing 
the 19S4 Act had felt that the 
forfeiture provisions it con-# 
rained were sufficiently wide, 
but the question had been left 
open as to how wide they were 
intended to be. 

It bad been argued by the 
prosecutor that the records and 
tapes had in foci been coupled 
with the styli or tape beads and 
consequently came under the 
proviso in section 14(3) of the 
1949 Act but in his Lordship’s 
judgment that was not so. 

The proviso was intended to 
deal with an altogether different 
situation than that before the 
court His Lordship had been 
impressed by the situation sug- 
gested by Lord Justice Glidewell 
in argument of a guitar player 
using an electric guitar.

ers would have been connected 
with other forfeited items and 
would have remained connected 
while transmissions bad t»i«»n 
place on tbedays on which the 
offences had been committed. 

The main problem posed by 
the case was what Parliament 
had meant by the word 
“apparatus". Was that meaning 
sufficiently wide to include 
gramophone records, tapes and 
speakers? 

Section 1 of the 1949 Act, 
under which the defendant had 
been charged, provided that no 
person should establish or use 
any station for wirdss teleg- 
raphy or instal or use any 
apparatus for wirdss telegraphy 


prosecutor that it would be it 
misuse of language to describe 
the guitar as “apparatus" in that 
sense and his Lordhship could 
see no difference between an 
electric guitar and a record or 
tape for the purposes of the 
present case. This pan of the 
appeal should therefore succeed. 

As for as the speakers were 
concerned, however, his 
Lordship's judgment went the 


other way. They could reason- 
ably be described as wireless 
telegraphy apparatus. 

Even if it were otherwise, they 
would be capable on the fans of 
the case of foiling within the 
proviso of section !9ofthe 1949 
Act. 

It would seem that the speak- A

coupled with the other forfeited 
items during a transmission and 
the appeal should be dismissed

concerned.

facts that that case had been

not with the making of

An order was made to delete 
the records and tapes from the

Leave to appeal to the House

question of law of public im-

As you can see. they were all in there pitching to 
become Which Carft ‘Best Bu/- the Orion, Cavalier 
Montego - family cars from Alfa to Volkswagen. 

But it took the Fiat Regata to show them all the 
way home with a combination of virtues that put the 

result beyond doubt . 

To use Which Car?b own words. 

“Performance is one of the Regatab strong suits 
The twin cam 100 Super can manage* class-leading 
100 m Dh' and the 0-60 mph dash in under 10 secs. 

" rjjjg comfort is good... and handling safe and 

predictable" _____ 


“The Regata’s interior is spacious. ..equipment 
levels are high tool In total, the Regata is quiet and refined” 
‘A truly massive boot makes the point that the 
Regata is a very competent load carrier as well'.' 

“Fiat have gone to a lot of trouble to make the 
Regata one of toe most refined economy machines in its 
class. ..All versions return very good fuel economy, however 
hard they are driven” 

And to sum up: 

“Buy a Regata and you get a lot of car for your 
money. All models are well equipped when compared ■ 
with rivals and although toe Regata never sets out to be 


a massive car it uses its interior space to great effect 
In addition, all models are pleasant to drive, handle 
predictably and shouldn't cost a fortune to run” 

Neither will they cost a fortune to buy. 
Your Fiat dealer can show you ail five 1.3 and L6 
litre Regata saloons and two estates at prices that 
start at £5,695/ 

But talk to him now - he may be able to 
tempt you even more with a very special offer. 

And in any event choose a Regata and you’ll drive 
away with Which Car?’s assurance that you couldn't have 
made a better decision.

detached fimuly. houses with a market 
value over £100,000 to smaH^S

■“S® been j various attempts to get 
builders and house-owners interested in 
energy saving, but so & littfc has been 

■ .7^. Electricity Council -. has now 
entered the field by launching a pioneer- 
ing design. for all-electriceneigyefBcient 
homes after several yearsofresearch into 
bighly- insulated low energy bouses. In 
co-opera tioa with Rendeu. Homes Ltd. 
pan of the Lovell Group, it. is providing 
26 rather special houses amid a develop- 
ment of200home5 of ihea ward- winning 
Medallion design, at Devizes. 

These particularly- energy efficient 


'homes use controlled ventilation and a 
heat - recovery -system to provide a 
■ continuous supply of dean, fresh air to 
the Ihring rooms, while removing mois- 
ture and odours and helping to prevent 
' condensation. The heat recovery system, 
. u conjunction wjtb electric space heat- 
, rag using the less than half price 
. economy tariff and the high levels of 
thermal insulation, will give occupiers 
"'very low healing costs, the Council 
chums. 

The . heat recovery system is . designed 
' to save energy by reebimmg 60-65 per 
of the heat produced by domestic 

- appliances, people and the sun shining 
through windows and adding it to the 
incoming fresh air. This energy efficient 

. house verification has evo?ved foilow- 
. ing years of research at the Electridty 
Connca Research Centre at Capenhurst, 
near Chester. It is intended as a 
progression from the. industry’s Medal- 

- lionaward scheme for private sector, low 
energy housing which has produced 
90,000 dwellings since the scheme was 
launched in .1978. 

- Estimated weekly running costs, for 
space and water healing only, for the new 
energy saving houses are £3.50 for a 2 
bedroom detached bungalow, £4.00 fora 
3 bedroom detached bungalow and £4.50 
for a 4 bedroom detached bungalow. 

Wort with solar heating, and saving 
with theofherfonns of .energy such as 
gas add o3, goes on apace and 
those with older houses frown more than 
somewhat when Their heating bills arrive 
through no doubtenetgy inefficient letter 
boxes: prompting them to think a tittle 
more about that side ofhousingcosts.

RACINCi: SHEIKH MOHAMMED’S FILLY HOT FAVOURITE FOR 1,000 GUINEAS AFTER TROUNCING HIGH-CLASS FIELD IN NEWMARKET TRIAL 






Supreme Leader should Brilliant

assume command 
over ideal distance 


* . ** 1 1

Supreme Leader is napped lo 
ixgin his four-year-old career 
m style at Newmarket this 
afternoon by -winning the day's 
most, valuable race, the Eari'of 
Scftdn EBF Stakes. 

On ihecorrespondingday 12 

months ago he showed that he 
was -the sort who comes to 
hand early when he finished 
second to Miller’s Mate rathe 
Wood Ditton Stakes. Just oyer 
a fonnight.Iater. having won at 
Sandown in the meantime. 
Supreme L ea d er did even bet- 
ter when he finished third to 
Shadcedand Baim in the 2000 
Guineas. 

Being by Bustmo and out of 
a fast mare by Habitat. Sab 
preme Leader sports a pedigree 
which suggests that he should 
be in his element today gallop- 
ing nine furlongs across New- 
market Heath. What is 
interesting is that in the Derby 
there was only a nostril be- 
tween Damister and my selec- 
tion when they finished third 
and fourth, respectively, be- 
hind Slip Anchor and Law 
Society. Now Damister has to 
give Supreme Leader 5 lb. 

While K-Battery will be as 
hard as nails after winning the 
Lincoln. I still fed that Les 
Arcs could prove the mam 
danger to one and all. It was 
when he was racing over 
today's course and distant 
that he looked so full of 
promise Fast spring when be 
won the Gerry Feifden Stakes 
first time out Thereafter his 
form went into decline, but 
with another year over his 
head I expect him to fiiffTU that 
early promise before long. 


By Mandarin (Mkhad PhilEps) 

Although ihere are only nine 
runners, the Ladbroke Europe- 
an Free Han diem is still as 
open as ever. My feeling is that 
we finish may be dominated 
by the Eddery brothers, with 
nil on Luna Bid just getting 
Uie better of Paul on Sperry. 
Both won at Newmarket as 
two-year-olds: Luna Bid when 
he carried 9si 7Tb to' win a 
nursery on the July Course in 
pud-summer. Sperry when be ■ 
led all the -way to dominate a • 
similar race on the Rowley 
Mile course in the autumn. 

Now Luna Bid is just pre- 
■ ferred in the belief that be will 
stay the seven furlongs better 
on ground that he wifi relish. 
Yesterday his trainer, Michael 
Bjansbard. told me that Luna 
Bid has come on well in the last 
three weeks and that he consid- 
ers him to be just about spot 
on. The only disconcerting 
factor in his mind is Ray 
Cochrane's decision to desert 
Luna Bid and ride Pilot Jet 
instead. But as Blanshard ob- * 
served, jockeys have been 
wrong before and he hopes that 
this will be another instance. 

At least in Pat Eddery he has 
secured the services of a top- 
class deputy. 

With only two races behind 
him Pilot Jet is the least 
experienced member of the 
field, but there was Nothing 
“green" about the way he ran 
away from a big field of 
maidens at Newbury . 

Grey Desire looks to have a 
good chance of winning the 
Aberrant Stakes for a second 
lime in as many years. Like last 
year be enters the fray on the 


NEWMARKET 


Totalised: £35, 3LK* 3.40 , *10 
Going: good to soft 
Draw: no advantage 


crest of a wave after successive 
wins at Doncaster and 
JCcmpton. Fitness apart Grey 
Desire will refish every drop of 
rain that falls beforehand. For 
him it Cannot be too soft. On 
recent form be holds Que 
Sympatica: on past Prince 
Reymo. So I nominate 
Hunttngdale's stable and gal- 
loping companion. Orojoya. as 
the main threat to Grey Desire 

Another excellent jumping 
programme beckons lovers of 
the countryman's winter sport 
to Cheltenham, with the spot- 
light on the Piper Champagne 
Golden Miller Chase. Thts was 
woo by Plundering two years 
ago. However, foliowing a fell 
at Liverpool and some indif- 
ferent jumping at Newbury 
before that. I have now lost 
confidence in Fred Winter's 
horse. 

Beau Ranger, the conqueror 
of Wayworn Lad at Liverpool 
and runner-up behind West 
Tip at Newbury before that is 
preferred this time. Charter 
Party and Catch Phrase, first 
and second in the Ritz Cub 
Trophy over today’s course ; 
and distance on the last day of 
the Festival meeting have been 
assessed strictly on that form. 

No matter how Von Trappe 
feres in the big race his stylish 
rider, the Grand National 
hero. Richard Dunwoody. 
should be in a happy frame of 
mind again oilier in the day 
having won the Holman Cup 
on Roadster. 

Finally. I give Arctic Scream 
a good chance of winning the 
Steel Plate and Sections Young 
Chasers Championship. 


Lady 

By Dick Hinder 

Sheikh Mohammed's flying 
filly. Soak Lady, is aO the 
rage. for the 1,000 Guineas 
alter sweeping dear to a three- 
. lengths victory in yesterday's 
Nell Gwyn Stakes at 
Newmarket. 

This speedy daughter of 
Nureyev now attempts to fol- 
low io the illustrious footsteps 
of Pebbles and Oh So Sharp, 
who used this particular trial 
as a steppmg atone to their 
triumphs in the first of the 
fillies' classics. Bookmakers 
immediately installed Sonic 
Lady as 9-4 fovoorite for the 
Newmarket confrontation oa 
May 1, although Hills will 
offer only 7-4. Jeremy Tree's 
fmvM candidate, ff«gy»rfp 1 
has been pushed oat to 4-L 

Soak Lady pulled nary hard 
in the early stage s of 
yesterday's seven-furioog trial 
and Waiter Swinburn had 
little option bat to let her have 
her bead and make the pace. 
She settled down well, howev- 
er, before halfway and steadily 
drew dear of her nearest 
pursuer, Ala Mahlik, who was 
caught dose home for second 
place by Henry Cedi's Lady 
Sophie. 

Sonic Lady's jubilant train- 
er, Michael Stoute, said: "I 
was delighted with her. 1 
thought it looked a good trial 
and she got the trip well, 
although the ground was much 
softer than 1 would have 
liked." 

The Newmarket trainer new 
plans to ran another of his 
talented . fiOies, Maysoon, in 



Sonic Lady speeds home from Lady Sophie and Ala Mahlik (Photograph: Ian Stewart) 


Newbury’s other important 
trial, the Fred Darting Stakes, 
on Friday, hut suggested that 
there was a question mark 
against Coktrspm and Dolka 
taVing their chance in the 
Guineas. 

l-iwa Omani was not too 
disheartened by the effort of 
Emfa£a,wbo was fourth, beaten 
just over J8 lengths by the 
winner. “She needed the race, 
and the soft ground was all 
agaiixt her," he said. 

Last season’s Cheveley 
Park winner is still on general 
offer at 10-1 for the big race. 
But Hills report a lot of 
interest in Gwydron. who was 
backed down from 20-1 to 10-1 
with them yesterday. This 
Ruse A Cup filly won last 
season's Queen Mary Stakes 
at Royal Ascot and now takes 


oo Kisgscote in Friday's show- 
down at Newbury. 

Earlier in the afternoon 
Stoute had a setback when 
another of his promising fil- 
lies, Royal Nugget, could man- 
age only eighth place behind 
the 14-1 chance. Zalatia. This 
promising filly won decisively 
by two and a half lengths and 
was the first victory' of the 
season for his young .Newmar- 
ket trainer. Willie Jarvis, who 
said: “My horses haven’t run 
well so far this season — I've 
had six runners and only one 
place — and 1 was a little 
dubious about Zalatia's pros- 
pects. However, I've always 
regarded her as a nice filly." 

There was a nail-biting 
finish to the mile and 
threeq narters Jerry Spencer- 
Smith Memorial Handicap. 


Gay Harwood's Backchai 
looked the likely scorer with a 
furlong to go, but he faded out 
of contention as the Mai ton- 
trained Rostherne came 
through and just held the late 
surge of Naftilos by a short 
head with Cadmium a neck 
away, third. 

Pat Eddery, the former 
champion and the season’s 
leading rider, kept up his 
recent spate of winners with a 
clear-cut success on Geoff 
Wragg's Digger’s Rest, who 
readily outpaced Below Zero 
by two and a half lengths in 
the Ladbroke Handteap.The 
reigning champion jockey, 
Steve Cauthen. was on the 
mark with No Beating Harts, 
who gamely resisted Respect's 
challenge in the St Etch worth 
Maiden Stakes. 


Bill defeat 
quashes 
hopes for 
Sundays 

Plans to introduce Sunday 
racing in Great Britain have 
received a significant setback 
with the defeat in the House of 
Commons of the Government s 
Sunday trading legUlaiion- 

A surprise rebel] ion by Tory 

MPs on Monday night meant 
that the bill which would have 
meant a relaxation of shop 
opening hours on Sundays, was 
defeated by 14 votes at the 
second reading stage. 

The news brought an immedi- 
ate reaction from the Jockey 
Club, who had hoped the bill 
would eventually lead to the 
legalisation of betting on 
Sundays. 

General Sir Cecil Blacker, 
chairman of the Jockey Club’s 
working party on Sunday racing, 
said: “The failure of the Shops 
Bill is a serious setback to the 
in trod union of Sunday racing in 
the immediate future. As a 
result. Britain will remain the 
only major racing country in the 
world unable to stage meetings 
on a Sunday, because of the 
current restriction on betting. 
Equally, we shall be the only 
major sport in lb is country 
unable to provide entertain- 
ment for the public on a 
Sunday.” 

He added: “We are naturally 
disappointed, and the Jockey 
Club's working party will now 
have to discuss what options, if 
any. remain open to us before 
reporting to the industry.’’ 

Disappointment was also ex- 
pressed by the Racecourse 
Association, whose Chief Exec- 
utive, Colonel John Cameron- 
Hayes. said: “In all probability 
Sunday raring will now founder. 
Unless you can have betting, the 
chances of racing going ahead 
on a Sunday are nil."

Printing 
hitches 
affect new 
paper 

By Michael Coleman 

A printers* hiccup deprived 
most of southern England and 
the Midlands from seeing the 
first copies of the Racing Post. 
the new punters' daily, backed 
by the Maktoum family of 
Dubai, which was launched 
yesterday in opposition to The 
Sporting Life. 

It an went without a hitch, 
apparently, in the North and 
in Scotland and Ireland- The 
pages were facsimiled from 
the Post's offices in Raynes 
Park, Loudon, to Warrington, 
Lancs, and printed and dis- 
tributed from there. 

The southern print order, 
however, proved too ambi- 
tious. “The print machinery at 
Burgess Hill just could not 
cope with the number of pages 
we had planned" a spokesper- 
son in the Racing Post circula- 
tion department said. 

“There were paper breaks 
and web breaks - whatever 
that may mean - and as a 
result few copies could be 
distributed in the southern 
area." 

For today's edition, the 
number of pages was being 
scaled down from 56 to 48. 
“We’re confident that whole- 
salers, and through them the 
agents and betting shops, will 
get all the copies they want 
tomorrow" she said. 

The first edition bad been 
well received in the North, she 
added. It had generated “a 
terrific response" and in- 
creased orders had already 
come in. 

Monday's problems at Bur- 
o _ss Hi]] meant that the 
planned 160.000-copy launch 
had to be reduced to a little 
over 100,000, but die circula- 
tion department promised the 
full output for today. 

The initial reaction from the 
courses and from the sport 
was favourable. Joe Mercer, 
the former jockey, said: "The 
Racing Post was late arriving 
in the Lam bo urn area this 
morning, so i’ve not had the 
chance to study it property yeL 
But what I’ve seen so far 1 like 
and it looks very good value at 
the price." 

Philip Mitchell the Epsom 
trainer, said: “I think we are 
very lucky to have two good 
racing papers now. I think it 
will like a while for punters to 
understand the format for the 
form, but I believe the si 2 e of 
the paper helps although, of 
course, it is that much thicker. 
If the Racing Post maintains 
the service that they have 
started out with then I will be 
more than happy to take both 
papers each day." 

Clive Brittain, the Newmar- 
ket trainer, commented: “I am 
very impressed. I think yon 
get an awful lot for your 
money. I also liked the form 
very much. It is so much 
easier to read and. overall I 
think the presentation is 
excdlenL" 

A Iasi cautionary word from 
Geoff Lester, raring corre- 
spondent for the rival The 
Sporting Life: “ There is 
certainly plenty of good read- 
ing matenal and they have got 
some sound writers. Bui I reel 
they have made a mistake in 
the presentation of the cards 
and form which arc too spread 
out"

RUGBY UNION: UNUSUAL MATCH AT HOME FOR A MEETING OF THE MINDS 


Lions aiming to 

conquer the 
challenge from 
rest of world 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


Delegates 10 the International 
Rugby Football Board's cen- 
tenary congress may be glad to 
exchange theory for practice this 
evening when they assemble in 
Cardiff for the first of the 
celebration matches arranged by 
the board. The British Lions, 
appearing for only the second 
lime on home soil, play a team 
drawn from the four other 
International Board unions at 
the Arms Park. 

Among the overseas team are 
six of the Australians who 
helped crush Wales last season 
on the third leg of their grand 
slam, including Slack, ca ptain of 
a team who have been prepared 
by Brian Lochore. coach to New 
Zealand. Lochore. who Jed his 
coumrv during their I9b7 visit 
to Britain, has the difficult task 
of drawing together the dis- 
parate talents of AH Blacks. 
Australians. French men and a 
soJitarv Springbok, then losing 
*■ for 


some risks. I have heard that 
some people in the United 
Kingdom would like to see the 
penalty reduced to two points, 
but that only reflects a state of 
mind. Coaches generally should 
lake a much more positive 
approach to the game. If both 
sides play positive rugby, pen- 
alties won't overtake the 
scoreboard." 

Since the Lions are being 
prepared by Michael Doyle. 
Ireland's coach, whose belief 
that bis players should express 
themselves brought his country 
a triple crown in his first season 
and a whitewash in his second — 
albeit a tremendously weh-con- 
tesicd whitewash — we should 
prepare ourselves for a hectic 
encounter, with what should be 
the greater match fitness of the 
northern-hemisphere players 
cancelled out by the better ball- 
handling of the men from the 
southern hemisphere.

Twickenham. 

For that match the 
join i he four home unions, a 
situation sufficiently confusing 
lor me to suggest on Monday 
that Sella and Gerber would be 
appearing together at Twick- 
enham. whereas they are sure to 
oppose each other in the centre. 

“Each country has a different 
way of doing things." Lochore 
said, “and the difficulty I have is 
getting a compromise between 
ail the patterns so they all feel 
comfortable." He has been 
helped by the presence of Jao 
ques Fouroux. the French coa- 
ch. and the linguistic abilities of 
his much-travelled countrymen. 
Hadcn and Me.tied. 

Asked if the aim today was to 
entertain or to win. Lochore 
said: “Nobody plays the game to 
lose. We want to entertain but 
we also want to be happy with 
the way we play. We want to 
play rugby the way we think il 
should be' played. 

“My philosophy of the game 
is very simple: I believe all 
payers should be involved at all 
times. Thai means as many 
tactical approaches as possible, 
within the limitations your 
weather may impose. If you 
have top players in all positions 
there is no reason to be stilted. 

“The game has to be played in 
a positive way. giving all players 
a chance to show their talents. 
To score tries you have to take 


fiery exchanges in the loose play 
as the two Scots. Beattie and 
Jeffrey, match their speed and 
support against Shaw and 
Poidevin. 

Two old heads are harnessed 
at half back for the overseas 
team: the New Zealanders. 
Loveridge and Smith, are in (he 
evening of distinguished ca- 
reers. Against them the Lions 
have paired Rutherford and the 
bright promise of Jones, the 20- 
year-old Welsh scrum half

powerful Aucklander. Kirwan.

hard pressed to put Ringland in

Italian seasoning

ftoftaeeRC Francis (NZ) 


England will take a B party 
containing II senior caps on 
their two-match tour to Italy 
next month. The side will be 
captained by Jamie Salmon, the 
Harlequins centre capped by 
both England and New Zealand. 
There are recalls for such experi- 
enced players as John Carieton. 
Marcus Rose and Steve 
Bainbridge. who was ignored at 
international level this season 
because of his poor disciplinary 
record. 

The two games are against 
Italy B in Catania on May 7 and 
the full Italian side in Rome on 
May (0. and ail three England 
selectors will be on hand as they 
choose the squad which, during 
the summer, will be asked to do 
specific preparatory work with 
next year's world tournament in 
mind. Michael Weston, chair- 
man of the selectors, will man- 
age the party and Martin Green 
and Brian Ashton will coach it 

The most experienced mem- 
ber or the party by far is 
Carieton. the Orrell wing, 
named in England's initial train- 
ing squad in October but over- 
looked since then. Carieton now 
aged 30. has won 26 caps as a 


wing but also has considerable 
club experience at centre. 

Hail i day. the Bath centre, and 
Simmons, the Wasps booker, 
were not available to tour so ft 
will be a significant week for 
Moore, the Nottingham booker 
who. at 24, may be the coming 
man in his position. 

As anticipated Bath, the cup 
holders, have a strong presence: 
eight of their players make the 
trip, including Morrison, a 
strong scrummaging lock whose 
athleticism is little short of 
Redman's 

Rose, the last of whose five 
caps was in 1982. deserves this 
reward for a good dub season 
but of equal interest will be how 
his club colleague, Salmon, faces 
up to the responsibilities of 
leadership.

Exotic play 
among the 
hedgerows 

By Rex Bellamy 
Tennis Correspondent

round dear. I was so pleased for

“Didn't be put you os the floor

“Ob no. that was completely are plenty of fine male event 
my fault. 1 had him all wrong as riders bat women always have a 
we went into the water*." - J — 



The polyglot community of 
international tennis has re- 
turned to the Cumberland club 
at Hampstead, where the British 
Home Stores tournament began 
yesterday. This is the first of five 
tournaments on the Lawn Ten- 
nis Association's spring circuit, 
featuring players ranked from 
1 52 downwards — which sound* 
modest unlit one considers, for 
example, the quality of football 
expected from players of 
equivalent world status. 

The setting almost justifies 
the rigours of the journey (from 
almost anywhere). The club, an 
island of green tacked away 
amid bricks and traffic west of 
Finchley Road, is rich in hedges 
rows, flowers and birdsong. One 
corner is even embellished by an 
assortment of exotic rabbits: in a 
garden, that is. as distinct from 
on court. Some competitors are 
no less exotic, notably Loic 
Courteau and Marie Pinterova. 
Both are spectacularly 
ambidextrous. 

Courteau. aged 22, was seeded 
eighth. He is a busy little 
bascliner. who hits two-fisted on 
both flanks when be has time to 
get into position. In I9S2 be 
caused a stir at the French 
championships when he had 
four match points against Jose- 
Luis Cere. Courteau has yet to 
build on that promise and he 
was beaten 6-3. 6-0 by Stephen 
BoifieJd. of Chingfont on a 
faster surface yesterday. 
Bot field, aged 20. is playing full 
time, but does not yet have a 
British ranking. He could be in 
the list nexi year. 

Eight of Britain’s ranked men 
and six of the ranked women arc 
in the draw. Stuart Bale (fourth) 
and David Felgaie (l Ith) must 
play each other. Paul Hutchins, 
head orihe LTA training depart- 
ment. regards Felgate as particu- 
larly promising in doubles — a 
reminder that you could score a 
few points at tennis parties by 
asking other guests to name 
British men who have won 
Grand Siam championships 
since 1936. when the Fred Perry 
era ended. 

There have been three such 
players: Billy Knight, who won 
(he French mixed title with Yota 
Ramirez: Roger Taylor, who 
shared the United States men's 
doubles title with John 
Newcombe and Cliff Drysdale 
in turn: and John Lloyd, whose 
partnership with Wendy 
Turnbull Won them two mixed 
titles at Wimbledon and one in 
Paris. Taylor coached Britain's 
Wightman and Federation Cup 
teams in 1978 and 1979 and. in 
the near future, will meet 
Hutchins to discuss a closer 
involvement with Britain's lead- 
ing players. 

To get back to Hampstead, 
one of the distinguished guests is 
the former Chilean Davis Cup 
player. Patricio Rodriguez, who 
is managing bis son Manuel, 
plus three Brazilian* and an 
Argentine. The sight of Rodri- 
guez as a spectators a sobering 
reminder of what a wonderful 
thing youth was. 


slight edge over them. 

The amount of cold nerve 
required to ride the cross- 
country section of a top event 
would make any hairy -chested 
athlete torn pale and look aside. 
“1 don’t get frightened,” Ginny 
Holgate, the European cham- 
pion. said. “If you are frightened 
yon should not be on the horse. “ 
The combination of skill and 
nerve that women call on in this 
section is obvious to a nnmb- 
skalh so how come women are 
not making their mark as top 
jockeys? 

“Women are new to ft,” Miss

Three-day eventing is the 
most searching test of the 
reiatumsbip between horse and 
rider yet devised. I know that the 
non- horsy find such talk 
troublesome. The idea that a 
two-way relationship of any kind 
can really be established be- 
tween baman and horse seems to 
many to be sentimental twaddle: 
the anthropomorphic maand er- 
of privileged nitwits, 
fact, horsy people, and in 
particular, horsy women, are 
figures of fun to the entire non- 
ani verse. All the “pleased 


deepest d is dai n of the townees. 
And special derision is reserved 
for the allegedly profound 
“relationship” between horse- 
woman and steed. The 
“snblimation”jokes start crash- 
ing in. 

Perhaps it Is comforting not to 
Cake loo seriously a sport so 
demanding of physical courage 
in which women so regularly 


they talk about any “bond” that 
exists between them and the 
horses they ride. Lester Piggott 
said: “I don't talk to horses. Ail 
horses are alike to me. They will 
obey rite same orders.” .And 
John Francome said in bis 
autobiography. Bon Larky. “1 
deliberately haven’t written 
much about horses ridden and 
races won because the winners 


can be found in the form book 
and, with the odd exception, the 
horses meant little to 
me— Riding was my job and 
horses were the tools l worked 
with.” 

Skilful race riding requires 
rapid assessments of hundreds 
of horses, in bursts of a few 
minutes at a tune, and the ability 
to get the best from them m such 
conditions. To ride in events 
requires not minutes bat years. 
Event riders have to train the 
horses themselves: there is no 
other way of doing iL It involves 
hoors of daily riding over years 
of intense progressive train* 

An event nder mast get 
best possible from the horse in 
the calm beauties of dressage, 
the precise riding of the roads 
and tracks, the sensible progress 
over the steeplechase and across 
the nerve-breaking obstacles of 
the cross-country, and at the end 
most still bave a horse sound, 
supple and willing enough to 
tackle the show jumping. To do 
all that a long-term relationship 
with the horse is essentiaL 

perhaps that is why women 
choose the sport in the first 
place. Certainly it seems that the 
requirements are best answered 
by women riders. “The two-way 
trust between horse and rider is 
crucial ip event riding.” Mrs 
Green said. 

Top jockeys make the stron- 
gest possible counter-claims for 
their own field. I wonder if 
women are better at braiding 
these relationships than men. 
And whether these flat state- 
ments of rejection from the 
jockeys convey a tack, pot of 
sentimentality’, hot of sentiment. 
Perhaps what is revealed is not 
some womanly asset: in s t ead, a 
certain poverty h» the personal- 
ity of the traditional sporting 
men. 


BOXING 

Christie is 
back to 
his old self 
again 

By Sriknmar Sea 

Boxing Correspondent 

An eliminator for the British 
middleweight championship 
does not sound too grand 
against the plans ofTotty Stbson 
to conquer the world in the ooi 
too distant future but for Errol 
Christie it will be the most 
important comesi of his life 
when he meets Tony Burke, ol 
Croydon, at the Royalty The- 
atre. Kingsway, London tonight. 

For Burke, who is known for 
little else but his punch, apd he 
is not known too well for that 
either, will be out to floor 
Christie now that Jose Seys. of 
Belgium, and Mark Kaylor have 
shown how it can be done. If 
Burke did put Christie on the 
floor and kept him there it 
would almost certainly flatten 
all the hopes of the exciting 
Coventry boxer. 

Christie has little to gain by 
sticking his chin ouu though he 
has to take a reasonably 
meaningful contest to prove to 
himselftbai he has got over that 
knockout by Kay lor. If be gets 
Burke out of the way quickly, no 
matter how spectacularly, his 
critics wiU still harbour doubts 
about his chin and his defence. 

They will only be satisfied if 
they see him come through a 
loe-lo-toe affair. Much, as every- 
one will be watching to see 
whether Christie can lake it on 
the chin, the Coventry middle- 
weight should have too much 
class to let Burke drag him into 
the rough stuff. 

Christie’s manager. Burt Mc- 
Carthy. who still has not recov- 
ered from that Kaylor blow on 
Guy Fawkes Night last year, 
says that Christie is back to his 
old self again and is all the more 
determined to leave the Burkes 
of this world behind him and get 
him to the ring with lop men 
like Graham. Kaylor and 
Sibsoo. 

U will be interesting to see 
what steps, if any. Ernie Fossey. 
his new trainer, has taken to 
keep his chin out of harm's way. 
Or has Fossey left it up to the 
naturally gifted Christie to make 
the fine adjustments to his 
boxing to keep his chin out of 
trouble? 

Sibson keeps up his promise 
of having a contest a month 
when he takes on Luis Rivera, of 
the United States. The Ameri- 
can does not bare too exciting a 
record, having lost six of his 
bouts. He is oft 2in but Sibson 
should not have loo much 
trouble getting to him as. 
according to reports. Rivera 
comes to fight. 

This is Sibson's third come- 
back contest after his srmi- 
retirrment last year because of 
an arm injury and hh followers 
will be hoping to see him 
reproduce the snap of his first 
comeback contest when’ he 
knocked out Juan Elizondo, of 
Mexico. If Sibson can do the 
same to Rivera inside seven 
rounds he would be going one 
better than the wond-ranked 
Doug DeWiti and could well 
find himself moving up in the 
world ratings.

dreams will he buried under 9 
six-goal avalanche in Baredona 
tonight, according to an astrolo- 
ger. Joaquim Tcxeirq. The 
outgoing Spanish, champions 
have been living on their nerves 
since a 3-0 first-leg semi-final 
defeat in Sweden two weeks ago 
but there was good news when 
the Barcelona newspaper. Sport. 
consulted Texeira 

"Barcelona will seme four 
goals in the first half and two 
more in the second.” was the 
astrologer’s confident- predic- 
tion of the outcome. Should less 
ethereal powers be at work, 
however, Barcelona's hopes 
may rest, on the broad shoulders 
of Bernd Schuster. 

The moody West German, 
now rest wed to fitness, and the 
Barcelona midfield, produced a 
vintage display in the 34) vic- 
tory over Valencia at Che week- 
cod and that must be a cause for 
concern in the Swedish camp. 
Much may also depend on the 
fitness of the Scottish -forward.

Venables will 
stay in Spain 

Barcehraa (Reuter) — Barce- 
lona hare c o nfirmed that their 
Easlish esawh, Terry Vcaables. 
mB be staying with the team for 
at least one more year. "The 
current coach wOL keep his job 
next season” officials said. 

Venables, whose aue has 
been linked with the . London 
debs, Arsenal and Tottenham 
Hotspur, has a contract with 
Baredona until 1988, fort the 
officials -meatioMd only the 
1986-87 season. 

Baredona have bad a mixed 
seasoa in Spain, surrendering 
the League championship to 
Real Madrid but reaching the 
finals of (he European Cmt and 
Spanish Cop. 


Steve Archibald, who scored the 
match-winning goal against the 
holders. Juveuius. in (be quar- 
ter-finals before limping out ol 
action with a strained leg 
muscle. 

Archibald is convinced he will 
recover in time to lead the 
Barcelona, attack, and he 
sounded only marginally less 
confident than the astrologer 
when he said “GOteborg will 
find it's a different show this 
time. The stadium, the fens and 
the atmosphere will all be in our 
favour, we are convinced we 
can get the goals which wiU put 
us in the final.” 

The misleading image of Swe- 
den as an unfashionable north- 
ern outpost of European football 
will be shattered permanently if 
Gdteborg win. While the Swedes 
are feared whenever they don 
skis or skates, their footballers 
have never commanded the 
same respect. 

Just why that should be 


remains a mystery. Six of the 
current Gdtebotg side were 
members of the team which 
outclassed Hamburg of West 
Germany 4-0 on aggregate in the 
1982 UEFA Cup nnaL It would 
be crass to dismiss them as 
second-class finalists and they 
will be worthy opponents for 
either Anderieeht of Belgium or 
■C pkm Bucharest in Seville cm 
May 7. 

Anderieeht will have to call 
on their vast experience when 
they defend a slender 1-0 advan- 
tage in Romania. Although they 
have a disappointing European 
Cup record. Seville would mark 
their seventh European final 
and they are past masters in the 
art of stifling teams such as 
Steaua. 

The main threat to the Bel- 
gian defence is likely to come 
from Victor Piturca. who scored 
a hat-trick in the 3-1 win over 
Bucharest's rivals. Rapid, at the 
weekend and has struck in every 
round of the European Cup to 
date. 

Anderieeht. already without 
their veteran goalkeeper, Jadcy 
M una ren, who has a pulled 
shoulder muscle, were 
surprizingly beaten 2-0 by the 
modest Beerschot in the Belgian 
League at the weekend when 
coach Arie Haan's experiment 
with a new defensive system 
failed. 

Anderieeht bave proved 
themselves one of Europe's 
most breathtaking attacking 
teams on their day but their 
ability to absorb continuous 
pressure has never been fully 
proved and recent results sug- 
gest their international stars are 
vulnerable to nerves. 

Like Gdteborg, Dynamo Kiev 
have a handsome 3-0 advantage 
over Dskla Prague and it wouki 
be a major surprise if the 
Ukrainians were missing from 
the Cup Winners’ Cup final in 
Lyons on May Z The other 
semifinal tie is nicely balanced 
with Atfetko Madrid defending 
a 1-0 lead against Bayer 
Uerdiagea in West Germany. 

The UEFA Cup is traditonally 
overshadowed by the two other 
competitions but that will not be 
the case in the Bcraabeu sta- 
dium where the holders. Real 
Madrid, will be bidding to 
overcome a 3-1 reverse against 
Intemazfoetale Milan in the first 

leg. Real were rvra worse placed 

last season when .they trailed 
Inter 2-0at the same stage. But a 
3-0 second-leg win took them 
into the final and the Italians 
may live to regret conceding 
that first 4eg goal m the San Sira 
stadium: ' 

Cologne of West Germany 
will undoubtedly be awaiting 
the winners in the two-leg final 
on ApciL 30 and May 6. They 
overcame Waregem 4-0 in the 
first leg and are unlikely to 
surrender that advantage in 
Belgium. . 


Sexton is 
going 
for all-out 
attack 

Dave Sexton, manager of the 
England Under-21 team, plans 
aSoui attacking role fw h« 
Side when they meet Jw}y 
second leg of the final of the# 
European Llnder-2 1 cltampion- 
ship at Swindon next Wednes- 
day. Iialv won the fast leg --0 in 
Pisa Iasi week riim player 
dub commitments 
eland to play a weakened team. 

Sexton has a much stron- 
ger squad, announced ' 

for the second leg. including the 
return of Venison (Sunderland). 
Pickering (Covennyl- Cranwn 
(Ipswich). Adams 
Robson (Arsenal). Wallace 
(Southampton) and Walters 
(Aston ViUa). . - . 

Fereday. the Queens Park 
Rangers utility player. and Law- 
m»ce. the Southampton winger, 
arc included as the two over-age 
SSsSSinplace of Mabbutt and 
Stevens, both of Spurs- ^ 

Sexton would have indudet^ 
the West Ham players Dickens 
and Coiiee. but has not done so 
because the London dub nave 
an important first division fix- 
ture at home to Newcastle two 
days before the match against 
Italy. Nonetheless. Sexton is 
pleased with his squad. It 
includes more of the P*ayer> 
who have got us this far be 
said “They know each other far 
better than the team who played 
in the first leg-7 
Sexton's tactics for the match, 
too. are perfectly clear. We 
shall set our stall out and attack 
from the start” he said. When 
you are two goals dovm. you 
really have no other choice. »c 

are quite capable of getting three 
goals, but the more difficult task ■* 

when you are planning an 
attacking game is to shut tne 
door as well. Away goals count 
in this competition and it is 
important that *c ^ stop the 
Italians from scoring.” 

Sexton has doubts about only 
two of his squad Parker and 
Coney, of Fulham, who have 
both been suffering with knee 
injuries. 

England the holders of the 
championship, beat Italy in the 
semi-finals of the last com- 
petition in 1984. Then England 
won (he first leg >1 at homeand 
lost 1-0 away to go through to 
the final against Spain.

FIFA are incensed by 
end-of-match fight 


Zurich (Reuter) — An Inter- 
national Football Federation 
(FIFA) official yesterday 
warned of strong action after the 
brawl at the end of Monday's 
clash between Uruguay and the 
World Cup hosts. Mexico, in 
Los Angeles. 

Mexico won the matach 1-0 
but 47,000 Americans in the 
Memorial Coliseum, the show- 
piece of the 1984 Olympics, 
witnessed a free-for-all among 
rival players at the final whistle. 

The FIFA vice-president, 
Harry Cavan, of Northern Ire- 
land attending a conference of 
delegates from the 24 World 
Cup finalists in Zurich, said he 
found it incredible that such an 
incident should happen.Cavan 
said: “Whoever is found respon- 
sible can expect drastic. action. 
Tbe referee has seven days to 
submit his report, and after the 
two parties involved give their 
own accounts. FIFA’s disci- 


plinary committee will step in. 

“We have been talking of tbe 
urgent need to improve the 
image of soccer and the oeed to 
combat spectator disturbances 
and mindless violence. And 
now this happens, a few weeks 
before the World Cup starts. I 
am the certain FIFA president 
(Joao Havel ange. of Brazil) will 
insist on exemplary punishment 
being meted exit once the fects 
are known.” The ■ American 
referee. Angelo . Brazzi. cau- 
tioned several (flayers during the 
game but reportedly lost control 
when he was jostled by Uru- 


(Lutb rt, I Buuarirath (Nottingham For- 
eat), i Cranson (Ipswich). A Adams 
an. p lW (ftEamk G Pancar 
S Robson (Arsenal). 0 Coney#

treday (OPR). G Lawrence 
(Southampton). 

Sharpe appeal 

Doug Sharpe, the former 
Swansea Gty chairman, said 
yesterday that he needed more 
money urgently if his rescue 
pac kag e was to succeed. He is 
being pressed by the official 
receiver to find £50.000 within a 
week to cover the third division 
'dub's expected losses and the 
remuneration of the special 
manager administering the 
dub's affairs.

Charmed life 




vigorating 


From John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent, St John's, Antigua 


England made sure that 
West Indies had 10 bat again 
in the fifth Test match, spon- 
sored by Cable and Wireless, 
here yesterday when their Iasi 
three’ first innings wickets pul 
together another 47 runs. Al- 
though Gower missed his 
hundred. England were near 
to 300 by the lime he was oul 
West Indies started their sec- 
ond innings half an hour 
before lunch with a lead of 
164. 

England saved the follow- 
on in the fourth over of the 
morning, so making sure of 
taking a Test match into a fifth 
day for only the second time 
in the series. Of the 12 more 
runs they needed to do so. 
Gower scored 1 1 and the other 
was a no-ball, of which, in the 
innings, there were no fewer 
than 49. nine of them scored 
off. 

From this start. Gower bore 
a charmed life. In the second 
over, bowled by Holding, he 
edged a boundary through 
third slip's upst retched hands, 
was bowled b% a no-ball, and 
very nearly gave a return 
catch. A couple of good hooks

followed in Holding's next 
over, the first of which saw 
England to at least a tempe- 
ra ry reprieve. 

Asked on Monday how he 
would bat yesterday. Gower 


said: “You hit what you see; 
that's the way you play, well, 
he was hitting again, at a short 
bail from Marshall this time, 
when given out caught at the 
wicket, acrobatically, by 
Dujon. By then, Ellison had 
also been caught at the wicket 
off Marshall after batting for 
82 minutes and adding 52 
with Gower. Gower’s 90 was 
the highest score for England 
in a first-class match on the 
tour, and Ellison will not play 
many more useful single-fig- 
ure innings than this oae. 

There followed a vile piece 
of bowling by Marshall to 
Foster while Emburey and 
Foster were making 20 for 
England’s last wicket and 
keeping West Indies in ihe 
field for a further half hour. 
Having hit Foster first on the 
left-hand then on the right, 
and then in the ribs, all with 
short bails. Marshall whistled 
a vicious bouncer over 
Fosters head. Bowling like 
this, and glaring at the bats- 
man after each delivery, Mar- 
shall belies his reputation for 
sportsmanship. He has done 
too much of it this winter. 



spin of Qadir 


Shaijah (Reiner l - Abdul 
Qadir yesterday spun Pakistan 
into the final of the world's 
richest cricket tournament as 
New Zealand were dismissed 
for 64. 

The leg-spinner bowled 
three New Zealand batsmen in 
one devastating over and Pa- 
kistan did not lose a wicketin 
winning the semi-final. 

Pakistan will now play In- 
dia on Friday for a winner's 
purse or $40,000 t £27.000). 
The runners-up will collect 
$30,000 from the five-nation 
tournament which carries a 
total prize money of S 1 10,000. 

New Zealand were in trou- 
ble from the outset. They lost 
the toss and Imran Khan.the 


Pakistan captain sent them in 
to bat and then removed the 
openerManin Snedden in the 
first over. Wasim Afcram. the 
young fast bowler, then 
promptly outdid Imran, tak- 
ing three wickets in his open- 
ing spell to have New Zealand 
tottering at 18 for four. 

Qadir was already in the 
thick of the action, snapping 
up a brilliant catch at short 
mid-wicket to dismiss Martin 
Crowe. New Zealand's leading 
batsman, for nine. Qadir, aged 
31. then joined the bowling 
attack and broke the back of 
the New Zealand batting. 

Qadir. the man-of-the- 
maich. bowled Bruce Blair. 


Tony Blain and John 
Bracewcll in one over and 
finished with a remarkable 
four wickets for nine runs 
from 10 overs. Wasim also 
returned impressive figures of 
three for 10 from seven overs. 

Nevertheless, the New Zea- 
land performance was lamen- 
table. The only batsman to 
reach double figures was Evan 
Gray with 17. Pakistan's 
opening pair Mudassar Nazar 
and Mohsin Khan coasted to 
victory, hitting 66 runs in 214 
overs. 


SCORES: New Zealand. 64 (Abdul 
Qadir 4 for 9. 

Wasim Akram 3 tor 10). Pakistan: 
66 (or no wicket (Mudassar Nazar 
32 not out Mohsin Khan 34 not out). 


EBBA wiU 
resist 
breakaway 
threat 


By Nicholas Harling 
The English Basket Ball 


to 


Association (EBBA) 
stand firm against a 
coed breakaway by a group of 
National League dobs and the 
Scottish champions, Murray 
International Metals, 
Edinburgh. 

In a letter to all the dobs, 
the president of the associa- 
tion, Mr Keith Mitchell, states 
that the association will not 
accede to the proposals, which 
include pa ss ing the control of 
the Natiessal League from the 
EBBA to the dabs for the 


coining season, 
he El 


The EBBA have already set 
up a committee of inquiry to 
look at ihe long-term future of 
the National League and a 
report will be presented later 
in the year in time for any 
recommendations to be imple- 
mented for the 1987/88 season 
if appropriate. The English 
dobs involved are Kingston, 
Sunderland, Portsmouth, 
Crystal Palace, Manchester 
United, Manchester Giants, 
Solent, Hemel/Watford, 
Bracknell and Leicester. Bir- 
mingham rejected the imita- 
tion which may now be passed 
to Bolton, who are also be- 
lieved to be reluctant to join 
the breakaway group. If the 
breakaway does go ahead 
there would be no room for 
Worthing - whose future is in 
any case uncertain — Brunei. 
Uxbridge and Camden, or 
either of the promoted clubs, 
CalderdaJe or Derby. 

Mr Mitchell, who is also a 
member of the Central Board 
of the International Basket- 
ball Federation and chairman 
of the Central Council of 
Physical Recreation, 
sjud:“Tbe association will 
seek the co-operation of any 
dabs who feel the need to form 
an independent league, with a 
view to pnrsnading them that 
this is a counter-productive 
initiative." 

Phil Matthews, a member of 
tiie National League manage- 
ment board, said: “The transi- 
tion of the administration of 
the National League from the 
EBBA to the dabs is an 
evolutionary and not a revolu- 
tionary movement. I personal- 
ly think it is regrettable that 
this latest complicated situa- 
tion has arisen and hope it will 
be resolved quickly

MOD PENTATHLON 


Olympic 
stars for 
Britain 


By Michael Coleman 


Two Olympic champions, 
Daniele Masala, of Italy, and 
Anatoliy Siarostia, of the Soviet 
Union, are in the 1 1 -nation line- 
up for the contest at Bir- 
mingham from June 11 to 15. 

Masala won his title at Los 
Angeles in 1984 and Starostin 
his in Moscow in I9S0. Because 
of boycotts neither has com- 
peted against the other at the 
Olympics. 

The inclusion of these two 
giants, who have straddled the 
sport for the lost six years, is a 
surprise and a fillip to the 
sponsors, the City of Bir- 
mingham and the Birmingham 
Olympics 1992 Committee. U 
adds further weight to 
Birmingham's projection as a 
.sports-centred city worthy of 
[ staging the Games. 

France, Hungary. Poland and 
US are also taking part. 


OLYMPIC GAMES 


Athens claiming 
their birthright 


From Mario Modtano, Athens 


Greece yesterday launched 
a determined effort to have 
the i 996 Olympics awarded to 
Athens to coincide with the 
100th anniversary of the mod- 
ern revival of the Gaines in 
tin's city. 


Mr Andreas Papandreoti, 
the Prime Minister, appealed 
to the International Olympic 
Committee and personally to 
Seftor Juan . Antonio 
Samaranch, its president, to 
support the Greek request He 
was speaking at an Athens 
ceremony marking the 90th 
anniversary of the modem 
games. 


Making Athens the venue 
would "provide an opportuni- 
ty to reinvest the Olympic 
spirit with its ancient origins 
and reconfirm its principles." 

On Monday night the Greek 
Parliament passed a resolu- 
tion with rare unanimity lend- 
ing their support to the Greek 
Olympic- Committee's 
proposal. 


'of New Zealand All 
Blades will have far wider, . 
harmful effects than mere 
international rugby rifts. The 
former Oxford University and 
Springbok captain. Tommy 
Bedford, fears it wtil antago- 
nize further those coloured 
rugby onions which an affili- 
ated to the anti-establishment 
South African Council on 

rugby 

establishment — which in- 
cludes coloured and Wack 
iminnc — was having 
some success in wooing a 
number of SACOS affiliates 
into his camp, following belat- 
ed but encouraging efforts to 
end rugby segregation. Now 

the tow may be seen as a raise 

priority. 

“We should stop the coer- 
chu and skulduggery that goes 
on to arrange these tours just 
for five’ weeks of fly-by-night 
pleasure," said Bedford, rice- 
captain of the last demons tra- 
tios-ptagned Springbok team 
to visit the British Isles 16 
years ago. “As a rugby man 
I'm looking forward to seeing 
the New Zealanders in action. 
But as a Sooth African I fear 
the tour may cause untold 
grief." t . . 

Bedford, now a pariah m the 
rugby fraternity for his outspo- 
ken advocacy of radical sport- 
ing change, worries that the 
“floating of world opinion" is 
(daring the interests of the 
predominantly white rugby- 

watching public ahead of the 
promotion of rugby as an 
integrated sport 


Demonstrations 
may be launched 


In 1976. Greece proposed 
that the Olympics be perma- 
nemlv located in Greece but 
the IOC have remained cool 
to the idea. 


“I believe tiiat Greece, 
birthplace of the ancient 
Olympic Games, is entitled to 
this* honour," he declared. 


The Greek Government 
now say they still support the 
repatriation proposal, but 
want to concentrate all their 
efforts on securing the 1996 
Games for Athens. .

By Colin McQuillan 

One of the rising tide of 
young Pakistani squash play- 
ers yesterday engulfed his own 
mentor in the First round of 
the Hi-Tec British open cham- 
pionships. at Dunnings Mill. 
East Grinstead. Maqsood Ah- 
med. ranked II th in the world 
and seeded 10th for this blue 
ribbon tournament of the 
international circuit, lost 9-6, 
9-6, 4-9. 1-9. 3-9. to Zarak 
Jahan in 83 minutes. 


Zarak is the 1 9-year-old 
brother of Hiddy Jaban.of 
England. "I had never played 
Maqsood before and I was 
very nervous, but my brother 
talked quietly lo me between 
games." he said. “Gradually I 
became convinced I could 
take him if I could get to a fifth 
game." 

Zarak appeared from no- 
where this season to create an 
astounding final to the British 
Under-23 Open champion- 
ship with Rodney Manin.of 
Australia. But Maqsood’s is a 
scalp of far greater value to the 
Jahan family. 


For Hiddy there was per- 
haps a particular pleasure in 
watching his younger brother 
beat one of the Pakistan old 
guard, who were never his 
favourite people even before 
he chose British nationality. 


Just as he was never selected 
for Pakistan, so Zarak was 
ignored when a new young 
Pakistani squad was selected 
for the recent world champi- 
onships in Cairo under the 
leadership of Jahangir Khan. 


Umar Hay at Khan beat 
Adrian Davies, of Wales, on 
Monday.And Jan she r Khan, 
the brightest prospect of them 
all. on Saturday won the world 
junior championship in Perth. 
Australia. 


England's players were in 
typically tantalizing form yes- 
terday. Darren Mabbs. a 21- 
year-old Bristol surveyor, 
patiently worked his way io a 
live-game win over Moham- 
med Awad. a wily and experi- 
enced Egyptian, then had to 
ring his employers to request 
extra leave to play Peter Hill, 
of Singapore, today. Geofl 
Williams, a former national 
champion, returning from 
double knee surgery, needed 
five painstaking games tc 
overcome Mark Talbot the 
American hardball specialisL 
Gawain Briars beat Alan 
Thomson, of Scotland, in 
straight games.

FOOTBALL 


Intriguing struggle in focus 


By Simon Joses 


The race for the League 
championship is naturally the 
focus of interest at this mo- 
ment of the season. But the 
promotion and relegation 
struggles are equally 
intriguing- 

This evening, Liverpool will 
visit Luton Town, who recent- 
ly ended Everton's unbeaten 
run of 18 games, hoping that 
Rush passes a fitness test on a 
badle bruised instep. Hansen, 
however, has recovered from 
an ankle injury. 

Liverpool are in ominously 
impressive form, but Man- 
chester United, who started 
the season with 10 consecu- 
tive League wins, seem to be a 
spent force. The injury prob- 
lems that have dogged United 
all season continue. Their 


recent £570,000 signing, Dav- 
enport. misses the game at 
Newcastle and will be replaced 
by Terry Gibson if be is fit 
Whiteside, who has missed 
the last two games with a knee 
problem, is another player 
who is doubtful. In defence, 
Garton may be preferred to 
Higgins. 

At tbe other end of the first 
division table, Aston Villa will 
probably be unchanged for 
their crucial home match 
against Ipswich Town since 
Gray has overcome a stomach 
strain. The Ipswich squad will 
include Atkins who has recov- 
ered from a foot injury. 

Villa's confidence must cer- 
tainly be higher than it has 
been for some time. By beat- 
ing Watford 4-1 on Saturday 


they eased themselves out of 
the bottom three and have 
now been beaten only once in 
their last eight games. Graham 
Taylor's most recent acquisi- 
tion. Steve Hunt, who was 

signed from West Bromwich 
Albion on the day of the 
transfer deadline, has been an 
important factor in the dub’s 
recent revival. 

Those most unlikely aspi- 
rants to first division status, 
Wimbledon, visit Bradford 
City with the encouragement 
that their recent £120,00 sign- 
ing, Fash arm, has recovered 
from an ankle injury. Further 
aggression will be provided by 
the return of Galiiers after a 
one-match suspension.

SPORT IN BRIEF 


Clean-out 
at Ibrox 




Graeme Souness, Rangers’ 
new player-manager, made 
sweeping backroom changes 
at Ibrox yesterday.His main 
move was to appoint Walter 
Smith, the Dundee United 
and Scotland assistant manag- 
er. as his assistant manager. 

Smith had been 20 years 
with United as player and 
official. “United have released 
me with immediate effect", he 
said. Rangers’ former 
backroom team of Alec

RUGBY LEAGUE 


Bloor in 
form for 
first cap 


There is only one potential 
new cap m tbe squad of 29 
announced yesterday by Mau- 
rice Bam ford, the Great Brit- 
ain coach, to train for matches 
against the visiting Austra- 
lians this winter. He is Darren 
Bloor. the Salford scrum half, 
who has been one of the main 
reasons why Salford have 
retained their first division 
status this season. He had a 
brilliant game against St Hel- 
ens on Sunday. 

One or two former interna- 
tionals have fought their way 
back into recognition after 
sticky patches this season. 
They include Andy Gregory, 
the Warrington scrum half 
recently dropped by his dub 
in favour of Paul Bishop, and 
Brian Noble, the Bradford 
Northern hooker, who cap- 
tained Great Britain in Aus- 
tralia but was then left oul of 
the squad and seemingly out 
of BamfortTs plans. 


“The £27 minion spent on 
bonding massive new rugby 
stadiums should have gone to 
the grass roots.” he said. “In 
the extremely volatile situa- 
tion in Sooth Africa, demon- 
strations may now be launched 
by Mack organizations. And 
for what cause?" 

Bedford advocates that the 
Sooth Africans should an- 
nounce an end to farther tours 
and concentrate on a massive 
Infusion 8f effort and cash to 
bnakl up rugby at schools and 
dab level. 

To tbe chagrin of tbe rest of 
the world the Sooth Africans 
and New- Zealanders insist 
that series between the two of 
them are the Herculean test of 
global rugby supremacy. As a 
New Zealand player said yes- 
terday in Cardiff: ''Playing 
there is the ultimate for ns AH 
Blacks.” 

The Sooth Africans relish 
the prospect of filling the vast 
money-losing stations at Ellis 
Park. Loftns Versveld and 
King's Park, to their rafters. A 
.work! XV rugby tour would 
hardly have the same galva- 
nizing effect as a call to arms 
than will the black jerseys of 
the New Zealanders. 

But economics is hardly the 
only concern. The tour will be 
seen as a political and sporting 
coop, indicating that the rugby 
world cannot shove Sooth 
Africa aside with impunity. To 
the extent that the New Zea- 
land authorities were unable 
or unwilling to prevent it. some 
commentators feel it shows 
that the rugby world is soft 
pedalling.

EQUESTRIANISM 


Third casualty 
for world 


The former Springbok for- 
ward, Rob Loin* , captain of 
the World XV in their match 
against Wales in Cardiff two 
seasons ago, and now a Wigan 
Rugby League player believes 
his defection to the pi fession- 
ai ranks, along w *h the 
Springbok winger. Ray Mordt 
has served to “rescue" South 
African ragby from impending 
total isolation. Fie argues that 
the game fears above all else 
the dangers of professionalism 
and wants to make sure the 
South Africans are not forced 
down that road. 

Younger players are becom- 
ing disillusioned with the way 
the*- game is ran in South 
Africa. There are already,

Andrew Griffiths and Hul- 
labaloo will not be competing 
in the world three-day event 
championships in Australia 
next month. On Monday the 
horse knocked a tendon on the 
off-fore during a workout at 
Wylye in Wiltshire 
. This is the third stroke of 
bad luck for Britain. Lucinda 
Green dropped out when Re- 
gal Realm strained a tendon 
and then Mark Phillips' horse 
Distinctive developed a skin 
infection. 

This leaves only six Britons 
in the championships: Virgin- 
ia Leng (nee Holgate) (Price- 
less). Loma Clarke (Myross). 
Ian Stark (Oxford Blue). 
Clarissa Sirachan (Delphy 
Dazzle). Mandy Orchard 
(Venture Busby) and Aun& 
Marie Taylor (Justin Thyme 
VI). 


said tire great Springbok cen- 
tre, Danie Gerber, in Cardiff. 

Though be himself has re- 
jected British Rugby League, 
contracts, he believes others 
will be increasingly tempted. 

Against these supposed ad- 
vantages must be weighed the 
deep misgivings in South 
Africa's rugby ruling circles 
about whether an "unofficial** 
tour was good politics interna- 
tionally. Dr Craven, a staunch 
amateur, has previously ex- 
pressed his fears that many of 
his colleagues might opt for an 
open break- with the Interna- 
tional Rugby Board if isolation 
were inevitable anyway. Tbe 
New Zealand torn, apparently 
indicates that harditners are 
gaining in strength.
