By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 

The Soviet Union yesterday miles away, who was said to 
appealed to Western countries have close contacts with hos- 
ier help m dealing with the pi tals and rescue services, said 
disaster at its nuclear power between 10,000 and 15,000 

pie had been 


station in the Ukraine, where 
a fire was raging out of control 
and thousands of families 
were reported to have been 
evacuated from a wide sur- 
rounding area. 

One Russian diplomat de- 
scribed the accident at the 
Chernobyl plant as "the worst 
ever in the world" of its kind, 
and according to a United 
Press International report 
quoting sources in Kiev, about 
2,000 people may have been 
killed. 

Radiation from the disaster 
area was still being recorded in 
Scandinavian countries, and 
West German officials ex- 
pressed concern that easterly 
winds might bring contamina- 
tion towards Germany. 

Britain is not at risk, accord- 
ing to experts here. 

The US said last night that 
it was "ready, willing; and 
able" to gi ve Russia medical 
and technical help, but had 
not been asked for assistance. 

The Soviet Union did, how- 
ever. seek advice from nuclear 
power experts in Sweden and 
West Germany on how tb 
control the fire burning at 
Chernobyl several days after 
the accident. 

Authorities in Moscow have 
released few details about the 
cause or extent of the damage, 
but some Western scientists 
believe a meltdown of nuclear 
fuel — the ultimate disaster — 
had occurred. 

An 18-tnHe radius area 
around the station was.berag 
evacuated, according to some 
reports*- with fleets of buses 
and -other vehicles comman- 
deered to take tens of thou- 
sands of people to safety. 

A resident in Kiev,about 60 


people had been evacuated 
from PripyaL the city built 
dose to the plant to house its 
labour force. 

"Eighty people died imme- 
diately and some 2000 people 
died on the way to hospitals," 
the source said. "The whole 
October Hospital in Kiev is 
packed with people who suffer 
from radiation sickness. 

“The dead were not buried 
in ordinary cemeteries but in 
the village of Pigorov. where

radioactive wastes are usually 
buried.” 

A spokeswoman at the Oc- 
tober Hospital later denied 
that patients from the accident 
area were being treated there. 
Other details of die UPI report 
could not be confirmed. 

Western embassies in Mos- 
cow said there were many 
similar rumours, including a 
figure of up to 3,000 deaths, 
but it was impossible to assess 
them. 

Last night the Soviet Gov- 
ernment issued a statement 
through Tass, saying two peo- 
ple had been killed, and that 
evacuations had taken place 
.from the plant vicinity and 
nearby population centres. 

The "radiaticn-aituation" ai 
the power station had been 
stabilized . and - "necessary 
medical aid" given to those 
affected. 

The statement gave few 


details of the nature of the 
accident but said it "resulted 
in the destruction of part of 
the structural elements of the 
building housing the reactor, 
its damage, and a certain leak 
of radioactive substances". 

The statement said the acci- 
dent affected what it called the 
fourth power generating unit, 
but said the other three units' 
were in order, although they 
were shut down as a precau- 
tionary' step. 

"Priority measures have 
been taken to deal with the 
effects of the accident. The 
inhabitants of the station's 
settlement fPripyat) and three 
nearby populated localities 
have been evacuated.'' 

Pripyat has a population of 
between 25,000 and 45,000, 
according to various reports. 

Some health experts in Brit- 
ain who specialize in the 
hazards of nuclear radiation 
believe many people living 
near Chernobyl could die 
within weeks or months from 
the effects of very high doses 
of radiation. 

Other victims could con- 
tract cancer in five or more 
years' time, and some mothers 
were at risk of giving birth to 
babies with genetic disorders 
or mental handicaps. 

Although the Soviet Gov- 
ernment was seeking advice 
from Swedish. West German 
and British nuclear safety 
experts on how to deal with 
the fire at the plant, the 
United Kingdom Atomic En- 
ergy Authority is the only 
organization with . sire* 
experience. - 

A fire broke out at 
Windscale, now known as 
Sellafield, in 1957. but was 
insignificant in comparison 
with the Chernobyl outbreak. 


Russians end news blackout 


. The. Soviet authorities last 
night ended a news blackout 
on details of the nuclear 
accident at the Chernobyl 
plant when an announcement 
from the Council of Ministers 
admitted that two people had 
been killed in the mishap and 
an unspecified number of 
people evacuated. 

Tne announcement, read in 
sombre tones on national 
television, was deliberately 
riot placed at the top of the 
news which is broadcast 
throughout the country. 

It acknowledged for the first 
time that the accident had 
destroved part of the

structural .elements of the 
building bousing the reactor. 

The statement, released si- 
multaneously by Tass. was the 
first official news of the acci- 
dent issued in 24 hours. It said 
that a Government commis- 
sion, including the heads of 
ministries, leading scientists 
and other specialists, was 
working in the region. - 
“The radiation situation at 
the electric power station and 
adjacent territory has now 
been stabilized and the neces- 
sary medical aid is being given 
to those affected,"! t said. 

It added: "The inhabitants 
of the nuclear power station's 


settlement and three nearby 
populated localities have been 
evacuated." 

The Council of Ministers 
statement gave no indication 
of the number of injuries. 

Unofficial estimates here 
put those involved in the 
evacuation at several 
thousand. 

The Soviet statement, 
which followed a day of 
prevarication by the Foreign 
Ministry which refused to 
answer any queries from 
Western diplomats, said: "Ac- 
cording to preliminary data, 
the accident took place in one

Poland 
sets up 
crisis 
team 

From Roger Boyes 
Warsaw 

Poland has set op a top-level 
civil-military crisis team to 
deal with the threat of a 
radioactive cloud, apparently 
covering scores of mules, that 
has gusted into north-eastern 
Po land 

Mr Jerzy Urban, the gov- 
ernment spokesman, said yes- 
terday that there were contacts 
between the Soviet and Polish 
Governments and between sci- 
entific experts of the two 
countries to gauge the scope of 
the problem. 

Iu Poland, the team headed 
by Mr Zbigniew Szaiajda. 
Deputy Prime Minister, met 
yesterday mo ruing to draw up 
emergency plans. 

Members of the team in- 
dude the ministers of health 
and agriculture, a general, a 
scientist and the head of the 
Polish atomic energy au- 
thority. 

Hospitals in the area have 
been put on standby alert and 
food reserves have been 
mobilized. 

The Polish Ministry of 
Health instructed Poles not to 
buy or drink milk that comes 
from the north-east of Poland. 

Although most cows in the 
area are eating dried, stored 
fodder, some may be grazing 
on pasture land, and this coaid 
prove to be a high risk, 
especially for bottle-fed 
babies. 

Every vegetable should be 
thoroughly wash and medi- 
cines would be dispensed to 
reduce the effects of radioac- 
tivity, the ministry said. 

In a separate communique, 
the ministerial crisis team said 
that treatment facilities were 
available, but stressed that 
that the radiation cloud did not 
represent a real danger, main- 
ly because it was still moving. 
Had the dond remained static, 
radioactivity would prove to be 
a real problem. 

Mr Urban did not disclose 
any details about die density 
of the chmd which has been 
blown 310 miles from the 
Chernobyl power station but 
slid !*ss * &!• triggered 
..bote Js* *. ~sge readings in 
about 200 geiger counters ran 
by the civil and military 
authorities. 

That suggests the cloud 
covers a large area probably 
taking in Suwalki in die top 
north-eastern comer, part of 
the Baltic coast and cities like 
Olsztyn and Bialystok. 

The overall strategy is to 
play down the crisis. So far no 
restrictions have been put on 
food sales though the measure 
seems to be under review. 

It is an area of lakes and 
forests which usually has a 
significant rainfall at this time 
of year. 

First visitors from the 
north-east yesterday reported 
that the news of the cloud was 
beginning to spread by word of 
mouth and people were begin- 
ning to buy in canned fi 

Until yesterday, there 
been no press reports a 
the Soviet disaster, but by 
yesterday evening, H had be- 
come the lead news item on

Failure to alert criticized 


By Richard Evans 
Lobby Reporter 

The House of Commons 
united last night to strongly 
criticize the Soviet Union for 
failing to immediately notify 
neighbouring countries of the 
disaster at its nuclear power . 
plant near Kiev. 

Mrs Thatcher told MPs the 
Swedish and Finnish govern- 
ments were only informed ot 
the incident after radioactive 
clouds had readied their 
countries. 

But she reassured them that 
preliminary tests carried out 
in Britain following the mas- 
sive nuclear leak, bad failed to 
detect any increase m the level 
of radioactivity m the UK. 

Together with other Cabinet 
ministers, the Prime Minister 
went out of her way to stress 
the "absolutely superb” safety 
record of Britain’s nuclear 
industry. "We have a very 
high, standard of safety and 
design, construction operation 
and maintenance of nuclear 


plant in the UK." she said. 

Mr Peter Walker, the Secre- 
tary of Slate for Energy, has 
officially asked Moscow to 
make available frill details of 
the accident. 

In a statement to the Com- 
mons, Mr Kenneth Baker, the 

Britons safe 

The Foreign Office said 
yesterday that as for as could 
be established no Britons had 
beat injured by the accident. 

There are 71 Britons living 
hi Kiev and 30 in Minsk. 
Britons in Kiev had reported 
they were safe and the Rus- 
sians had said conditions in 
Minsk were normaL 

Secretary of State for the 
Environment, said a disturb- 
ing feature of the incident was 
the way in which knowledge of 
it had not come from Moscow 
but from monitoring by 
neighbouring countries. 

**J hope the Soviet Union 
will make available informa- 


tion about this incident be- 
cause it is very valuable for the 
whole of the nudear industry 
and the world to know as 
much as possible." 

He confirmed that about 
100 British students were in 
Minsk, about 60 miles north 
of the Chernobyl nuclear 
plant, when the accident oc- 
curred. Embassy officials in 
Moscow were investigating. 

The UK Atomic Energy 
Authority and the National 
Radiological Protection Board 
were carrying out substantial 
monitoring of radioactivity 
levels. The Minsitry of Agri- 
culture would be checking soil 
samples on ihe east coast and 
in north Wales as well as 
testing milk samples all this 
week. 

Mr Baker said ihe graphite 
moderated reactor responsible 
for the nuclear leak was of a 
unique design and there were 
none like it in the WesL 

British experts had rejected 
the reactor as unstable in the 
1950s. 


disrupt jails throughout the 
country as claims were made 
of “total anarchy" and riot 
conditions inside Gloucester 
prison yetpjrday. The ge.er- 
nor suspended officers taking 
part in protest action over 
manning levels. 

Members of the Prison 
Officers' Association in En- 
gland, Wales and Northern 
Ireland are behg instructed 
from today to take industrial 
action described as extensive, 
highly disruptive and on a 
continuing basis. 

POA officials forecast last 
night that the action would be 
more serious than in 1980-81 
when troops were called in to 
man an incomplete prison and 
two camps were opened to 
take overspill prisoners. 

At Gloucester, more than 20 
prisoners staging a rooftop 
protest over the officers' lock- 
out hurled bricks and tiles at 
senior staff and demanded 
that they be allowed to return 
|_io their posts. 

'/Police equipped with riot 
gear stood by outside the 
20 foot high walls as pieces of 
tile crashed into the street and 
on to parted cars. Prisoners 
yelled their demand that they 
would stay on the roof unit] 
the officers were allowed to 
return. 

About 30 senior staff and 
assistant governors from other 
prisons were last night be- 
lieved to be running the prison 
and more are expected to be 
drafted in today . 

They were helping Mr Nich- 
olas Wall, the governor, to 
keep control of the 300 in- 
mates but prison officers who 


with Ihe 

police said that prisoners were 
totally unsupervised inside 
2 nd gave warning that the 
tense situation could escalate 
into violence. 

Some of the assistant gover- 
nors brought in from prisons 
in the South-west and Mid- 
lands had to face the anger and 
abuse of prison officers when 
they were forced to leave the 
jail to unload a vegetable lorry 
outside the main gatt Its 
driver had refused to go inside 
when POA members told him 
that their dispute was official. 

Last night Mr Ian Dunbar, 
the regional director of the 
Prison Service for the South- 
west. who was called into 
Gloucester to make a report 
for Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, and to advise 
Mr Wail on the best way to 
cope, said that the prison was 
secure. He said there was no 
danger to the public, but 
conceded that the situation 
inside was “tense and fragile.” 

He said the 23 prisoners 
who had clambered on to the 
roof had been reduced to 13 by 
icatime. 

Mr Byron Hughes, the POA 
branch chairman, was in ur- 
gent contact last night with his 
national executive to report 
on the deteriorating situation. 

He told The Times: "There 
has been a state of total 
anarchy inside the prison. 
Prisoners were wandering the 
grounds unsupervised, some 
tried to break into the ladder- 
shed and others got on to the 
roof. We are still standing by 
outside to make sure no one 
escapes, but the situation is 
impossible.”

Business 
forces tax 


By David Smith 

The Treasury yesterday an- 
nounced significant tax 
changes in response to criti- 
cism of last month's Budget. It 
also changed the rules to allow 
companies to finance them- 
selves without relying on bank 
fccn\A\:ra. • 

Intense lobbying by leading 
British companies, including 
ICl and Reuters, rorced the 
Treasury to tone down its 
controversial tax on American 
Depositary Receipts - British 
shares denominated in dollars 
and traded in New York. 

Mr John MacGregor. Chief 
Secretary to the Treasury, said 
that the rate of the proposed 
tax was being cut from 5 to ! .5 
per cent. 

Sir Nicholas Guodison. 
chairman of the Stock Ex- 
change. welcomed ihe 
changes. 

Share prices, partly in an- 
ticipation of the Treasury's 
announcements, were strong 
yesterday. The Fin^nUii 
Times 30-share index rose by 
25.9 points to 1,391.2.

By Alan Hamilton 

The bright English spring 
sun shone on ihe last journey 
of Wallis. Duchess of Wind- 
sor, yesterday afternoon, as it 
had too little shone on her life. 

Her funeral service was 
simple and shorn of pomp, her 
burial intensely private, wit- 
nessed by only four members 
of the Royal family and eight 
old friends and retainers from 
half a century of exile. It was 
the way she and the Duke had 
planned it together. 

She did not so much come 
home, for little of her life was 
in England: she came to join 
her husband, who had lain 
under a spreading plane tree in 
the Royal burial ground at 
Frog more since 1972, end 
whose death abandoned the 
Duchess to a desolate 
widowhood. 

Her body, which fced kin In 
the Albert Memorial Chapel 
of Si George's in V.mdsor

Paris «n Sunday, was carried 
by a bearer party of Welsh 
Guards, of which the Duke 
was once Colonel- in-Chief, 
early y esterday afternoon to be 
placed on its purple draped 
catafalque in the quire of St 
George's. On top of it lay the 
Queen's wreath of white and 
orange lilies, almost the only- 
flowers present. 

The guard was taken np by 
the Military Knights of Wind- 
sor, their scarlet tunics a rare 
ray of colour in a stark scene. 

Over ]i)0 mourners filed 
into their places in the nave. 
The French influence was 
strong: British ambassadors to 
Paris past and present: friends 
from the continental soda! 
circle of which the Windsors 
were so tong the fulcrum; old 
acquaintances like Lady Di- 
ana Mosley and Lady Alexan- 
dra Metcalfe, widow of the 
Duke's best man sr.d the sole 
surviving witness of their 
wedding.

Future power stations could go back to coal

Energy Comes] 

The Central Electricity 
Generating Board (CEGB) 
may be forced to accelerate 
■plans to introduce a new breed 
of coal-banting power stations 

because of renewed ow 

the safety of nuclear^ power 
stations after Monday's acci- 
dent in the Soviet Union. 

Scientists and engineer s at 
the CEGB research centre

cause the CEGB believes that, 
with demand for electricity 
growing by an average 4 per 
cent a year, it will need new 
stations in operation by the 
mid-1990s. 

The industry would prefer to 
build about six nuclear sta- 
tions but has accepted that

make it necessary to build coal 
stations.

station involved' in Monday's 
accident, Sizewell B would be 
a pressurized water-cooled 
design. 

Tbe Department of Energy 
bad planned to rale on the 
Sizewell report by the end of 
this year, but with nuclear 
power likely to emerge as a big 
election issue it is expected to 
postpone the report until the 
safety issues have been 
reconsidered. 

Any government-imposed 
delay on the construction of 
tbe Sizewell power-station will 


be a bitter personal blow to 
Lord IVfprshall, the CEGB's 
chairman. 

Eighty per cent of electricity 
is generated by coal. 17 per 
cent by nuclear power and 3 
per cent by oil. 

The Government would wel-

the CEGB. the National Coal

way of continuing to provide 
jobs.

Mineworkers has once again 
rejected a Coal Board offer on 
pay and pensions. Mr Kevin 


Hunt, the board's head of 
industrial relations said yes- 
terday. 

Mr lan MacGregor, the 
NCB's chairman, said the 
board would stick to its threat 
to withdraw the offer today 
with the result that miners 
would lose back pay dating 
from the beginning of 
November. 

Mr MacGregor reaffirmed 
the ultimatum after announc- 
ing details of the board's best 
financial performance for sev-

“The truth is, unless we are

commerce should have the 
highest priority, with other 
policy areas taking second 
place' except to the extent that 
they fulfu these economic 
objectives." 

An annex to the letter says 
that existing commitments in- 
clude real improvements in 
health and personal social 
services, education and train- 
ing. housing, transport inner 
cities, job creation. industry 
and overseas aid. 

A spending standstill would 
be imposed on agriculture, law 
and order, defence and envi- 
ronmental services. 


wanting that the Alliance 
commitment to boost public 
sector pay in real terms may 
have to be financed by effi- 
ciency improvements or re- 
ductions in service. 

It says: “Real improve- 
ments in public sector pay are 
expensive — a 25 per cent in- 
crease in nurses' pay would 
cost £750 million per annum; 
10 per cent would cost 
£300 million...25 percent in- 
crease in teachers' pay would 
cost £1.25 billion per annum; 
10 per cent would cost 
£500 million." 

The letter says that the task 
of restraining public expendi- 
ture will not be easy, as the 
present government has dis- 
covered. "Even a government 
dedicated to cutting back pub- 
lic expenditure has not been 
able to do so." 

Tories stay calm 
in by-election 

Conservatives in Derby- 
shire West maintained a stoi- 
cal calm yesterday after the 
latest opinion poll suggested 
that its once large Jead for the 
May 8 by-election contest was 
being whittled down by oppo- 
sition parties. 

Mr Patrick McLoughlin, the 
Conservative candidate, took 
the press on a peaceful ride 
along the Cromford canal on a 
horse-drawn barge, and de- 
clared that he would not be 
panicked by the opinion polls. 

He was charitable towards 
the former Conservative MP, 
Mr Matthew Pam's, whose 
resignation caused the by- 
election. who said on Monday 
that it was even possible to 
imagine a Labour candidate 
winning the seat. 

Mr McLoughlin. aged 28. a 
former miner, who suffered 
the jibes of his colleagues 
when he worked throughout 
the miners' strike, appeared 
well-equipped to cope with 
any crisis. 

He said: "We will go out 
calmly and cooly to get the 
best vote we can.” 

But the BBC Newsnighi 
poll, which gave the Conser- 
vatives 37 per cent, the Alli- 
ance 32 per cent and Labour 
30 per cent - it received only 
I7perccnt in 1983— has 
electrified the campaign.

Commons 
anger over 
Cornish 
tin mines 

By Sheila Gunn 
Political Staff 

MPs of all parties rounded 
on foe Government in the 
Commons yesterday for fail- 
ing to give aid to save the few 
remaining Cornish tin mines. 

If help is not forthcoming 
before the end of the week it is 
feared that planned mine clo- 
sures will be unstoppable. 

Mr David Harris, Conser- 
vative MP for St Ives, predict- 
ed that the pumps would be 
turned off at Geevor mine this 
weekend, which would mean 
it could not be reopened, 
because of flooding. 

Rio Tinto Zinc has an- 
nounced that it will dose its 
three mines with foe loss of 
1,000 jobs. 

Mr Peter Morrison, Minis- 
ter of State for Trade and 
Industry, repeatedly told MPs 
that an application for help 
from Geevor tin mines was 
being considered, but there 
was none from RTZ. 

The Cornish tin industry, 
which once boasted 600 
mines, has been hit by the fall 
in the world price of tin from 
£9,500 a tonne to below 
£4,000 in one year. 

Mr David Penhaligon, Lib- 
eral MP for Truro, predicted 
that prices would rise again. 

Mr Robin Maxwell- Hy slop. 
Conservative MP for Tiv- 
erton, and a member of the 
trade and industry select com- 
mittee, said it was better to 
"take a risk" over foe future 
price, of tin than suffer 
unemployment. 

Mr Robert Hicks. Conser- 
vative MP for Cornwall South 
East, said that the delay in 
offering aid was causing frus- 
tration and annoyance.

Subsidy the only hope for tin miners 


By Tim Jones 

A thousand Cornish tin min- 
ers were this week confronted 
with the prospect that they 
may be finished for ever. Not 
unexpected, the news was 
nevertheless devastating. 

Tin mining is hard and 
brutal: a face worker is old at 
45. sapped by working 
1.400 feet below ground in 
humid heatThe men were 
shaken by the announcement 
from Rio Tinto Zinc that it 
was to close its three mines in 
August unless "no practical 
solution is forthcoming". 

That means a huge subsidy 
from the Government to tide 
the industry over the crisis 
caused by foe default of foe 
International Tin Council in 
October last year and the 
subsequent failure of the 22 
member governments to agree 


a common cause of action. 

Since then, a Commons 
select committee on trade and 
industry has accused the Gov- 
ernment of "secrecy and 
incompetence” over its han- 
dling of the crisis and recom- 


mended financial support for 
foe industry. 

The price of tin has plum- 
meted from £9,500 a tonne to 
about £3,900 a tonne on the 
international spot market. 
Cornish tin is viable only if it

Miners who work in Wheal 
Jane, South Crofty and Wheal 
Pendarves are convinced that 
if they can receive govern- 
ment help of about £50 mil- 
lion they can ride the storm 

Mr Peter Gatiey, aged 35, 
married with two children, 
said yesterday at foe rock face: 
“We all have commitments 
which match our earnings and 
if the mines close there is little 
hope of any other job." 

Another miner. Mr Jeff 
Parsons, who will travel to 
London today to plead foe 
case, said: “Considering tin is 
a prime natural resource 
which can meet half of 
Britain's needs it seems crazy 
to dose us down for short- 
term financial considerations. 
AH we are asking for is help to 
tide us over this bad patch." 


Gangs replace poachers 

By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 
The traditional local poach- man. He will have achieved often equipped with

has been largely replaced by 
well-equipped criminal gangs. 
Mr Leonard Soper, Chief Con- 
stable of Gloucestershire, told 
a conference in London yes- 
terday of the Standing Confer- 
ence on Countryside Sports. 

The rewards of poaching on 
a large scale were likely to be 
considerable, whether for 
game, deer or fish, he said 

If thwarted or unsuccessful 
in poaching they would turn to 
other criminal activity. There 
were large, isolated properties 
in the countryside attractive 
tobuiglars. 

"The modem poacher is 


some knowledge of the coun- 
tryside and sufficient of foe 
countryman's skills to enable 
him to catch or kill his quarry. 

"But he will certainly not 
have a countryman's sense of 
balance and proportion and 
feeling for foe countryside. He 
will certainly not be consider- 
ing foe well-being or liveli- 
hood of those who live in foe 
countryside, and he will not be 
considering foe well-being of 
or the question of cruelty to, 
his quarry."

Study into 
choice of 
jury trial 

By Oar Legal Affairs 
Correspondent 

The reason defendants 
choose to be tried at the crown 
courts by jury rather than by 
magistrates is to be studied in 
a £75.000 research project 
launched by the Lord 
Chancellor's Department. 

The research, to be under- 
taken at York University, is 
aimed at finding ways to cut 
the workload at crown courts 
which has substantially in- 
creased in recent years. ’ 

It also comes at a time when 
the Government proposes in 
its next criminal justice Bill to 
remove the right to trial by 
jury in the case of three 
offences to ease foe crown 
court workload. 

Defendants and their law- 
yers will be interviewed about 
their reasons for choice.

Moderate realist at union’s he! 


Mr 


By Craig Seton 

Bill Jordan, who was 
confirmed yesterday as the 
new president of foe Amal- 
gamated Union of Engineer- 
ing Workers. Britain's second 
largest union, is regarded by 
the labour movement as a 
right winger and by those who 
know him well as a realist and 
a moderate. 

In the ballot to find a 
successor to Mr Terence Duf- 
fy. Mr Jordan polled 1 19.220 
votes and Mr John Tocher, 
the left-wing candidate, 
95.511. 

At a press conference in 
Birmingham yesterday Mr 
Jordan, aged 50. foe union's 
divisional organizer in the 
Midlands for 10 years, was 
keen to play down his reputa- 
tion as a “moderate." 

He said: "I may be regarded 
as a moderate, but I am 
avaricious for jobs and greedy 


for success that will bring 
wealth and a fair share of that 
wealth for working people." 

He said that as an engineer, 
he took a practical view of the 
modern world. "I think we 
have got to get away from 
some of the ideology of foe 
pasL I warn success for our 
industries. I want it for our 
union and I want it in jobs. 

"Our outlook has to be 
dominated by logic first - if an 
employer will not listen to 
logic, then and only then you 
have to resort to muscle." 

Mr Jordan, married with 
three grown-up daughters and 
about to become a grandfather 
for the fourth time, bailed foe 
result of foe ballot for foe 
presidency as a “great 
victory".

of manufacturing industry

of industry. 

Mr John Allen, district sec- 
retary of foe AUEW in Bir- 
mingham, who knows Mr

different from Teny Duffy, 
who was an instinctive fellow, 
whereas Bill will make sure he 
is well armed and well briefed 
before he challenges an em- 
ployer on foe facts. 

"He is a very deep research-^ 
er and a detailed negotiator. 

Mr Jordan takes up his new 
post on May 7. He intends to 
leave Birmingham and move 
to London with his wife, Jane. 

Mr Jordan is a passionate 
football follower, but his team, 
Birmingham City, has been 
relegated to foe second divi- 
sion. He said that his unstint-

Alliance challenges Hatton 


By Peter Davenport 

Voters in the local elections 
in Liverpool have the oppor- 
tunity to do what the Labour 
Party leadership has so far 
failed to achieve: to end the 
Militant domination of city 
council politics. 

Liberal-SDP Alliance lead- 
ers in foe city are confident of 
achieving a big enough swing 
in foe May 8 election to make 
them foe biggest party and 
wrest control from Labour. 

Thirty-seven of foe 99 coun- 


cil seats will be contested next 
week: 17 held by Labour, 
seven by foe Tories and 10 by 
the Alliance. Of the Labour 
seats 13 are held by council- 
lors among foe 47 appealing 
against disqualification as a 
result of their rates rebellion. 

The main issue throughout 
foe campaign is foe perfor- 
mance of the Labour council 
during foe past few years and 
its tactics or financial confron- 
tation with the Government.

Tories put brave face 
on Scottish elections 

By Ronald Faux 

Scottish Conservatives said Rating reforms, among foe 


yesterday that they were "qui- 
etly confident" about their 
chances in the regional elec- 
tions on May S, which wfll be a 
difficult test in popularity. 

Conservatives run three of 
the nine Scottish regional 
councils, only one of them with 
an overall majority. 

The Government has no 
realistic hopes of winning 
ground elsewhere given its 
controversial policies in Scot- 
land, which have not been 
presented to the party's credit 


harsh legacies bequeathed by 
Mr George Younger to Mr 
Malcolm Rlfkind, his succes- 
sor as Secretary of State for 
Scotland, have received a 
Green Paper, but foe benefits 
of the change have not been 
generally grasped by Scottish 
ratepayers. 

The Conservatives are also 
feeling foe backlash from 
public spending cuts, foe do- 
sure of the Gartcosh steel 
plant and other issues which 
have put the Scottish Office 
team on the defensive. 


council will be: Alliance 47 
seats, Labour 45, Conserva- 
tives six. with one seat vacant 

However, if the 47 Labour 
councillors lose their appeal 
against disqualification fur- 
ther elections will have to be 
held for their seats within 42 
days and foe Alliance expects 
to win 16 and achieve overall 
control of the council. 

The Alliance says that a 
15 per cent swing on May 8, 
as achieved when they over- 
turned a 1. 000-vote Labour 
majority in foe Old Swan 
council by-election in Jamt- 
ary. would give them up to 
nine Labour seats. 

But foe crucial campaign is 
taking place in foe seven Tory- 
held seats foe Alliance must 
win to end Labour oontroL 
Four are in wards where 
Liberals already have council- 
lors and arc confident of 
victory. The other force, 
Allerton, Croxtefo and Wool- 
len. are solidly Conservative 
and are being fought by SDP 
candidates who are campaign- 
ing heavily to persuade Toiy 
electors that tactical voting is 
foe only means of ending foe 
reign of Mr Derek Hatton and 
his colleagues. 

Pany campaigners report 
“phenomenally good res- 
ponse" to their arguments. 


Mayors at 
Domesday 
service 

A total of 400 mayore and 
Lord Mayors from forosghoat 
Britain joined Qieen Eliza- 
beth, the Queen Mother, at 
Westminster Abbey yesterday 
to celebrate foe nine-hun- 
dredth anniversary of the 
Domesday Book. 

It was one of the biggest ever 
gatherings of local authority 
leaders. The mayors, who had 
special, permission from the 
Lord Mayor of Westminster to 
wear their rtd robes and- 
c^emomal chains in the Ab- 
bey, were invited totbe service 
by foe Domesday. Committee. 

Their ^presence emphasized 
the importance of William foe 
Conqueror's book as a ibemida- 
tion stone for Britain's nation- 
al and local government. 

The Queen Mother, who 
later attendedthe Duchess of 
Windsor's funeral at Windsor, 
wore a black hat and coat. 

Several hundred dignitaries 
crowded into the Abbey, parts 
of which are older than the 
Domesday Book of 1086. 

Among them were Lord 
Hailsham of St Marylebone, 
foe Lord Chancellor, and Mr 
Bernard Weatherill, the 
Speaker of foe House of 
Commons. 

Mr Geoffrey Martin, the 
Keeper of Pnbtic Records told 
them: “There is nothing in our 
history quite like the Domes- 
day Book". 

In his address he praised its 
“confident professionalism" 
and thoroughness. A facsimile 
of the book was carried 
through the Abbey during foe 
service. 


Challenge 
over nurse 
home sale 

By Nicholas Timmins 
Social Services 
Correspondent 

The Royal College of Nurs- 
ing yesterday challenged foe 
Government to issue guidance 
on foe sale of nurses’ 
accommodation. 

The college has said that foe 
health service’s ability 1 to re- 
cruit staff and to respond to 
terrorist incidents or disasters 
was being threatened by plans 
to sell off nurses’ homes. 

Last week, Mr Norman 

Fowler, Secretary of State for 

Social Services, gave an un- 
dertaking that no nurse would 
be made homeless by the sale 
of “surplus" NHS accommo- 
dation. which ministers be- 
lieve could raise £1 70 million. 

But student nurses at foe 
RON'S annual congress in 
Blackpool said hundreds of 
colleagues had received letters 
giving them notice to quit 
Mr Trevor Clay, RCN gen- 
eral secretary, said foe college 
would take legal action if a 
health authority attempted to 
evict nurses. Mr .Fowler’s 
statement last week that au- 
thorities should retain accom- 
modation “as needed" for 
student nurses and other staff 
in areas such as inner dries 
had confused officials. . 

• Doctors must warn 
young girls seeking the: contra- 
ceptive pill that they were 
risking cervical cancer, by 
having sexual intercourse at' 
an early age. Mrs Rose Dixon, 
a cancer nurse in WirraL told 
foe congress. 


Euro-MPs 

immunity 

opposed 

By Richard Evans 
Lobby Reporter 

A dispute broke out at 
Westminster last night over a 
House of Lords report approv- 
ing proposals to give Euro- 
MPs widespread immunity 
from criminal prosecution. 

The peers say that members 
of the European Parliament 
should be immunefrom arrest 
or criminal prosecution in 
respect of any acts except 
cri mes .of violence. 

Mr Edward Taylor, Conser- 
vative MP for Southend East 
and secretary of foe Conserva- 
tive European Reform Group, 
said: .“This is an outrageous 
proposal and I hope the Brit- 
ish Government wifi reject it" 
The only important immu- 
nity enjoyed by Westminster 
MPs is foe freedom of speech 
in proceedings in Parliament 
The report comes after a 
request by members of the 
European Parliament to inr 
crease their privileges and 
immunities. Strong reserva- 
tions over the proposals have 
been expressed by the Foreign 
Office, foe Home Office and 
the Lord Chancellor's 
Department 

The peers say foe European 
Parliament lacks the powers 
possessed by Westminster to 
protect itself and its members 

r 'nst interference by means

Bui they insist the planned 
immunity should not apply to 
the arrest of a Euro-MP com- 
mitting, about to commit or 
having just committed an of- 
fence.

’The" number of prisoners 
serving short sentences who 
have been released -early on 
.parole has increased more 
than 40-fold dining the past 
four years, it was disclosed 
yesterday. - 

Mr Dkvid Meltor, junior 
HOm& Office minister, dis- 
posed that 8s302 prisoners 
sentenced to between a year 
and 23 months in jail were 
granted parole in 1985. com- 
pared to just 201 in 1982 . 

The largest increase was 
between 1983 and 1984 When 
the figure increased from 202 
to 5,743. That was mainly due 
to foe reduction in the mini- 
mum qualifying period, for 
parole. 

Mr Gerald Benningham, 
Labour MP for St Helens 
South, obtained the figures in 
a written Commons answer. 

• The process of reviewing 
applications from prisoners 
serving life sentences to be 
released on licoice has in- 
creased from six months to 
about 10, in spite of recent 
moves to simplify foe proce- 
dure. the Ombudsman said 
yesterday (Geoige Hill writes). 

He was commenting on a 
report on the case of a prisoner 
who had to wait more than 13 
months to hear whether he 
would be released. 

The Ombudsman accepts in 
his report that some lengthen- 
ing of the process seems 
“almost inevitable" without 
staff increases or streamlined 
procedures.

Dispute in 
prison 
escalates 

Continued from page 1 

He claimed that the break- 
down in relations with the 
Governor came about because 
Mr Wall had masterminded a 
plan involving Assistant Gov- 
ernors and other senior mem- 
bers of management to take 
control of the main gate and 
keys to the prison and lock but 
pnson officers late on Monday 
night 

He said the day shift of 70 
prison officers had been told 
'.they.' could' not enter the 
building unless they agreed to 
the Governor’s terms and 
signed “some sort of declara- 
tion of loyalty" 

The 125-strong branch of 
the POA at Gloucester had 
been incensed by the 
Governor’s threats, he said, 
and had passed a vote of no- 
confidence in him. They now 
wanted him removed. 

The prison officers at 
Gloucester deny that their 
protest is over the amount of 
money they wfll lose because 
of the new manning levels the 
governor wants imposed to 
meet Horae Office proposals. 

Inside the prison, Mr Dun- 
bar told a press conference 
that on Monday night the 
governor bad taken steps “to 
control foe rate of this prison 
because staff refused to accept 
his lawful orders". His action 
had been to secure access to 
and from the prison. 

Mr Dunbar told The Times 
that he was keen for talks 
between the Governor and the 
prison officers to go ahead, but 
first the warders had to accept 
foe governor’s authority.

Business stress is seen 
as important cause of 
accidents on roads 

By Michael Bail;, Transport Editor 

Stress among business exec- fleets rapidly were more likely preoccupied or distracted. 

to experience a high accident 


meeting in 


utives is emerging as a serious 
cause of road accidents, a 
conference of the British Med- 
ical Association was told 
yesterday. 

Harassed managers and 
salesmen drive faster than 
they should as they worry 
about business problems, psy- 
chologists and insurance ex- 
perts told the 
London. 

Employees of computer 
companies, where competi- 
tion was fierce, were particu- 
larly vulnerable. On average a 
fleet of 100 cars in a computer 
companies had 100 accidents 
a year, compared with 40 
accidents per hundred cars in 
other companies. 

Companies which made 
rapid changes of personnel or 
policy, or expanded their 


level, the meeting was told. 
Drink was often suspected 
as a contributory factor, par- 
ticularly among top executives 
who resort to alcohol when 
cracking-up. The executive 
did not need to be over the 
drink limit to lose road judge- 
ment; drinks enjoyed days 
before could make Uie driver 
slap-dash or slow to react 
In a Department of Trans- 
port survey quoted at the 
conference, most car drivers 
involved in accidents were 
executives. Nearly one-fifth 
had alcohol within three hours 
before the crash. 

About 9 per cent of car and 
lorry drivers involved in acci- 
dents reported being anxious, 
depressed or confused, and 
slightly more said they were 


Hay fever victims 
face poor summer 


One cause identified by 
analysts from Hogg Robinson, 
the insurance brokers, which 
organized the conference, was 
lack of sensitivity by manag- 
ers. If they implied superior 
driving skill on their own part, 
they antagonized their drivers. 

One company suffered a 
sharp increase in accidents 
when its cars were replaced by 
vans, which were not liked. 
Drivers could not identify 
with them, the conference was 
assured. 

Another car fleet suffered 
because the firm had a policy 
of no radios, which caused 
driver resentment. Hogg Rob- 
inson's risks management pro- 
gramme included sessions for 
company drivers on race 
tracks. 

But the most important 
aspect, according to Hogg 
Robinson, was understanding 
the drivers' point of view, and 
helping him to shape his 
emotions and motivations. 


Hay fever sufferers can 
expect a worse time this 
summer than they had last 
year, according to Dr Tom 
Smith, a general practitioner 
who has studied the effects of 
the allergy for five years. 

Last year. Dr Smith par- 
sued his researches among 
London tax! drivers, who had 
to open their windows fre- 
quently and travelled from 
area to area. He found that 
there were as many sufferers 
among taxi drivers as among 
the rest of the population. The 
symptoms showed no sign of 
abatement with age. 

Of 100 drivers who are 
victims, one quarter . had to

ers or injections to suffer from 
symptoms of drowsiness. 

Dr Smith said that the best 
advice to sufferers was to avoid 
going out before 11.0am or 
between 4.0pm and 7pm. At 
the seaside, however, pollen 
was carried out to sea in the 
morning and came back with 
the sea breezes in the eve- 
nings. 

Only the most expensive car 
air-conditioners would be 
effective. 

Dr Smith said that pollen 
counts were so localized as to 
be almost useless. Victims 
would do better paying atten- 
tion to weather forecasts, bear- 
ing in mind that any simny, 
warm day was likely to be a 
miserable one for them.

University, a psychologist ad- 
vising the Department of 
Transport on safety research, 
said the average driver made 
an error every two miles. 
Psychological studies showed 
that accident rales were largely 
unrelated to the intelligence, 
personality, or physical fit- 
ness. 

Dr Frank McKenna, a 
Reading University psycholo- 
gist, said studies showed most 
drivers considered themselves 
in the top 20 of safe drivers. 

Mr David Davies, research 
director at Hogg Robinson, 
said that firms' accident rates 
could be nearly halved by 
management programmes. In- 
surance brokers who had hith- 
erto seen themselves only as 
negotiators were now looking 
seriously at reducing accident 
rates.

Wife ‘killed in nightmare 


A weeping husband yester- 
day relived at the Centra] 
Criminal Court a “nightmare” 
of* fighting Japanese soldiers 
which he claims caused him to 
strangle his wife. 

Colin Kemp, aged 34, a 
father of three, said that he 
throttled his wife, Ellen, aged 
33, to death during a dream in 
which be was “strangling a 


Japanese soldier”. 

He said he woke to find his 
wife lying dead across his left 
arm and “panicked”. 

He told the jury in tears that 
he tried to wake her and 
slapped her face“I couldn't 
feel a pulse. I just went barmy. 

“I had never heard of 
anybody ever doing anything 
violent in their sleep before.” 


Mr Kemp, a sales represen- 
tative, of Abbot's Walk, 
Caterham. Surrey, pleads not 
guilty to the murder of his wife 
on August 8 last year. 

Mr Robin Simpson, QC for 
the prosecution, claims that 
the story of the dream is a lie 
and that he deliberately 
killed his wife. 

The trial continues today 


Solicitors 
call for 
relaxation 
of rules 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs! Correspondent 

Solicitors would have far 
greater freedom to attract 
business, to advertise their 
services and acccept work 
introduced by contacts such as 
building societies under wide-, 
ranging reforms to their pro- 
fessional practice rules 
proposed yesterday 

The reforms are outlined in 
a consultation paper by the 
Law Society’s contingency 
planning wonting party which 
is aimed at enabling solicitors 
to “project themselves in the 
new competitive environ- 
ment”. 

Solicitors should not do 
anything in obtaining work 
“which compromises or im- 
pairs. clients’ freedom oi 
choice, the solicitors' indepen- 
dence, his duty to act in the 
best, interests of the client, his 
good repute or his proper 
standard of work,” the paper 

"ft t the continuation of the 
profession as a strong, inde- 
pendent legal profession de- 
pends on “economic 
viability”. 

Among the proposals are 
that touting should no longer 
be specifically prohibited un- 
der the practice rules, al- 
though solicitors will still be 
, expected to abide by general 
principles - of . behaviour that 
would not permit touting. 

The paper also proposes a 
new . practice rule for .work to 
be introduced by institutions 
to be recognized under tbe 
Building Societies Bill to em- 
ploy solicitors to do convey- 
ancing. 

On advertising, a revision 
of the code is suggested so that 
any advertising would be al- 
lowed unless specifically 
prohibited. 

The proposals are being sent 
to the. profession for consulta- 
tion and have yet to go before 
the Law Society's council.

Stars to defy Equity’s 
South Africa ruling 


By Michael Horsnell 


A challenge to the left-wing 
domination of Equity, the 
actors' union, over its ban on 
performances in South Africa 
was delivered yesterday by a 
number of stars, led by Mr 
Derek Bond, the union's for- 
mer president. 

A letter to Equity from 
hundreds of actors, including 
Peter O'Toole, Dinah Sheri- 
dan. Barbara Murray and 
Dinsdalc Landen. rejected the 
union's right to instruct mem- 
bers on a political issue. 

Mr Bond resigned as presi- 
dent four weeks ago. with only 
two months of his two-year 
term of office to run. after the 
union, backed by a majority of 
only 3.000 of its 32.000 mem- 
bership who voted on the 
issue, decided on its South 
Africa ban. 

Mr Bond, who is appearing 
in The Amorous Prawn in 
Belfast, told The Times: “This 
is a statement to council to 
bring to its attention the 
stupidity of issuing an instruc- 


tion which won't be obeyed by 
many leading members of 
Equity. 

“The union isn't our mas- 
ter, it’s our servant Is it going 
to tell us we mustn't perform 
in the United States bemuse of 
the Libya bombing or Russia 
because of the Afghanistan 
invasion? Where does it end? 

“It’s not an argument about 
apartheid but the right of Lhe 
union to which we have to 
belong to give us an instruc- 
tion of this kind. If it stands 
we shall disobey this instruc- 
tion. We have pledged our- 
selves never to play before 
racially segregated audiences 
and that is of moral value.” 

No one was available for 
comment at Equity's London 
headquarters. 

• The union, which has also 
banned the export of sound 
and recorded material to 
South Africa. was yesterday 
commended for its action by 
the United Nations special 
committee against apartheid. 


Fear over hang gliders 


By A Staff Reporter 


Hang glider enthusiasts are 
working to reassure other air 
users that a new way of getting 
airborne is safe. 

Hang glider pilots usually 
manhandle their wings to the 
top of a hill to soar from the 
summit or glide down again, 
but it is physically tiring and 
time-consuming. 

"He British Hang Gliding 
Association has developed a 
system of launching hang 
gjiders by tow wire and winch 


and this increases flying time 
and opens the flattest country- 
side to the sport. 

But reports that some glid- 
ers have been flown like a kite 
by the winch crew to heights of 
6,000 feet have alarmed heli- 
copter operators and aircraft 
pilots. 

They arc unhappy at the 
prospect of 6.000 fret of 
virtually invisible piano wire 
hanging in the air. 


Honour 
for Roux 
brothers 

The brothers Albert and 
Michel Roux, proprietors of 
Le Gavroche restaurant in 
Mayfair, London, and the 
Waterside Inn at Bray, Berk- 
shire. yesterday joined the 
most renowned chefs of 
France as recipients of the 
annual Personnalite de 
L’Annfce awards presented by 
an international jury con- 
vened by Pierre Sennegon in 
France. 

Also honoured, and first 
among English wine experts to 
win such an award in the 16 
years of their presentation, 
was Mr Michael Broadbeni. 
Master of Wine, director of 
the wine department at 
Christie’s. 

Champagne 
by design 

About 100,000 artist-de- 
signed bottles of 1981 Tait- 
tinger champagne were 
offered for sale in London 
yesterday costing £50 each. 

The company decided sev- 
eral years ago to commisssion 
artists to design both the 
bottles and labels for excep- 
tional vintages, which would 
be sold as collectors' items. 
The 1981 vintage was de- 
signed by tbe French artist, 
Arman.

Cancer research given £4m boost 


Cancer research at two Scot- 
tish centres is to receive more 
than £4 motion it was dis- 
closed yesterday. 

The Leukaemia Research 
Fond announced a grant of 
£2 million to Glasgow 
University’s veterinary school 
to set up a research unit into 
human leukaemia viruses. 

The Imperial Cancer Re* 
search Fond said it was also 
going to spend £400,000 a year 
on research into more effective 
and less traumatic treatment 
of all forms of cancer at the 
clinical oncology department 
Of the Western General Hospi- 
tal in Edinburgh. That was in 
addition to the £2 million the 
fond has already pot into the 
Edinburgh research. 


By Ronald Faux 

Professor John Smyth, head 
of tbe department, said trials 
using high doses of a drag 
combination to treat small cell 
lung cancer, the fastest grow- 
ing form of the disease, had 
increased the number of suf- 
ferers living for two years or 
more from 5 per cent to 26 per 
cent 

Small cell long cancer ac- 
counts for about one third of 
ail long cancer, 95 per cent of 
which is believed to be caused 
by smoking. Professor Smyth 
said there was an enormous 
middle area in the treatment of 
cancer w here a core couW not 
necessarily be offered but 
where more and more effective 
treatment could be offered. 


The new tmit in Glasgow, 

claimed lo be the first of its 
kind m the world, wfl] continue 
the work carried out by Profes- 
sor William Jarre tt, head of 
the department of veterinary 
pathology and his colleagues. 
Their research has shown that 
leukaemia in cats is usually 
associated with Infection by a 
retro vims an important cause 
of anaemia and a variety of 
Aids (acquired immune defi- 
ciency syndrome) in cats. 

Studies in America have 
shown that the same family of 
viruses were the main cause Of 
one rare form of human 
leukaemia and another virus 
from the same family was a 
cause of Aids.

brief statement on the accident 
said that a disturbing feature 
was the way tu which knowledge 
of u had emerged, not from the 
Soviet Govern menu but by 
monitoring in other countries. 

He urged the Soviet Govern- 
ment to give a full account of 
what had happened and the 
steps that had been taken to 
bring the incident under control. 
Present evidence suggested 
there was no danger to the UK. 
but the situation, would con- 
tinue to be monitored carefully. 

He pointed out that they did 
not know- with any certainty the 
precise nature ot the incident 
but it was clear that there might 
have, been significant casualties. 
Mrs Thatcher told MP$ that 
there was a duty on countries to 
report accidents through the 
International Atomic Energy 
Agency. 

Reaction in the Commons to 
the Soviet accident was first 
raised bv Mr Gerald Bowden 
( Dulwich. C) who asked: In view 
of the widespread alarm about 
reports of leaks from the nuclear 
installation in the So* ici Union, 
would she reassure the House 
and nation that our own security 
checks and monitoring system 
would pretent such an occur- 
rence in the UK?

•Reacting later to Mr Baker's 
comments. Dr John Conning- 
ham, chief Opposition spokes- 
man on the environment. — 
whose Copeland constituency 
contains the SeJlafirld nuclear 
reprocessing plant — suggested 
that the Government should 
make strong and immediate 
representations to the Soviet 
Union over the need for the 



Cunningham; Make 
immediate representations 


Mrs Thatcher: Wc have very- 
high standards of safety, design, 
construction and maintenance 
of nuclear plants. 

Mr Tony Benn (Chesterfield. 
Labi, a former Secretary of State 
for Energy; .As this clearly is a 
very serious accident in the 
Soviet nuclear power station 
and the Americans have refused 
to build a pressure water reactor 
for nine years because of safety 
anxieties! will she give an assur- 
ance that there will be no 
decision abou; building a PWR 
at Sizewel! until there has been a 
full report on the Soviet ac- 
cident and the House has an 
opportunity to take into account 
the very large number of issues 
raised, including the leaks at 
Sellafield and the decision to sell 
British plutonium to America 
for their weapons programme? 

Mrs Thatcher: He is in a 
position to know the very high 
standards of safety’ »e exact in 
the construction of our nuclear 
plants and the high standards of 
our. nuclear installations 
inspectorate. 

We shall have to await the 
report of the inquiry into 
Sizewell before taking any 
action. 


Mr Alex Fletcher (Edinburgh 
Central. C) said that there had 
been a callous and irresponsible 
failure by the Soviet Govern- 
ment to give the earliest possible 
warning about the dangers of 
nuclear fall-out. to say nothing 
of lack of advice to their own 
citizens. 


Will the Prime Minister take 
the earliest opportunity; (he 
asked Ho condemn the action of 
the Soviet Union directly and 
through the European Commu- 
nity and the United Nations? 


Mrs Thatcher 1 understand the 
Swedish and Finnish govern- 
ments were only informed after 
radioactive clouds had reached 
their territory. There is a duty, 
through the International 
Atomic Energy Agency, to re- 
port accidents. . : . 

Mr David Alton (Liverpool, 


fullest and most urgent disclo- 
sure of all information about the 
nature and scale of the accident. 

Could Mr Baker confirm that 
a graphite moderated reactor in 
a station comprising four light- 
waicr reactors, apparently with- 
out secondary’ containment, had 
been on fire for several days? 

What information was there 
about the nature of the radio- 
active emissions? Would the 
British Government respond 
positively to any requests from 
the Soviet Union for assistance? 
Were there any nuclear stations 
or this type in the UK? (Conser- 
vative protests). 

Would any additional mon- 
itoring be required in the United 
Kingdom and what liaison was 
taking place with other Euro- 
pean Governments on the na- 
ture of the contamination? 

Would the Government join 
with other European Govern- 
ments to request international 
inspection of the site and con- 
sequences of the accident? 

Mr Baker said the Secretary of 
State for Energy (Mr Peter 
Walker) bad already asked for 
full details of the accident 

He could not confirm details 
about a continuing fire. The 
British Government had not 
been asked for assistance, but if 
scientific help was requested 
and the British Government 
could be heipftil. such assistance 
would be made available. 

. There were no such power 
stations in the United Kingdom. 
(Labour cry. of: “Vet yet”). 
Monitoring by the National 
Radiological Protection Board 
at Oxford and Glasgow with 
gamma monitors had found no 
increase in radioactivity at the 
moment. The Ministry of .Agri- 
culture. Fisheries and Food 
were checking the position. 

.The Central Electricity Gen- 
erating Board power stations 
had monitoring equipment and 
there was no indication of 
increases in radioactivity. 

The Soviet Union was a 
member of the international 
atomic authority and he hoped 
it would be able. through them, 
to make available information 


about the accident, because it 
was valuable for the industry 
worldwide to know as much as 
possible. 

Mr Patrick Jenkin (Wansread 
and Woodford. O. former Sec- 
retary of State for the Environ- 
ment: Many of Dr 

Cunningham's questions would 
have been better addressed to 
the Soviet Government. 
/Conservative cheers) 

Is there not a remarkable 
contrast between the reticence 
of the Soviet authorities about 
what is obviously an extremely 
serious accident, and the open- 
ness of the system in western 
governments, most recently 
exemplified by the statement of 
the new chairman of British 
Nuclear Fuels Ltd which has 
been so warmly welcomed by 
environmental interests in this 
country? _ 

Mr Baker There is, unfortu- 
nately. a striking contrast be- 
cause we have the public 
opinion of our people to be 
concerned about and it is right 
and proper we should put our 
cards on the table and be open as 
we are in ail these matters. 

I have been speaking today to 
representatives of our team of 
nuclear inspectors and confirm- 
ing with them that in our 
nuclear policy safety is ab- 
solutely paramount Nuclear en- 
emy must carry the conviction 
ofzhe people and this can only 
be done with very vigorous 
safetv standards. 

Mr David Alton: The British 
Council has said there are about 
100 students and teachers in the 
region. What efforts are being 
made in Moscow and Leningrad 
to contact them and ascertain 
their safety? , _ 

He is criticising the lack of 
information coming from the 
Soviet Union but the Govern- 
ment is running a tight rein over 
the information it makes avail- 
able on our own nuclear in- 
dustry. Far loo much secrecy 
surrounds it in this country. 

Mr Baker: He does his cause no 
good by exaggerating. There is 
openness and frankness in deal- 
ing with this. It is one of the 
most regulated industries with a 
vast number of checks and 
balances. 

Regarding the students, our 
embassy in Moscow is checking 
on them. We think there are 
some students in Minsk which is 
about 100 KM north of the 
incident. 

Mr Tony Benn: Before he is too 
ready to criticize the conceal- 
ment. which like him 1 strongly 


regret, will he look to see that 
when 


..hen there was a major nuclear 
explosion in 1958 in the Soviet 
Union it was monitored by the 
CIA which notified the Atomic 


Energy Authority in Britain and 
told the 


WM . „.em not to make it public 
for fear it might cause anxiety 
about nuclear power. There are 
many other examples. 

There is a growing number of 
people who believe the time has 
come to phase out nuclear 


power. 

Mr Baker 


He would be on 
stronger ground if the Soviet 
Union had told the world about 
this when it occurred rather than 
us learning about it from mon- 
itoring in other countries. 1 
would strongly contest his view 
that there is less than frankness

More could not have tow done

few weeks to try » resolve the 
position of the Cornish an

rison, Minister of State for 
Trade and Industry, smd m

is the Commons. ’ 

Mr David PenfwligotrfTniro, L) 
raised the issue by asking fora 
statement on the Government's 
intention for the future « ®e 
industry. 

Mr Morrison: The Government 
has made ft dear it is wBlmg » 
consider applications for assis- 
tance towards the cost ot 
projects which will make the 
arises competitive in a free tm 
market. 

An application from Ceevor

considered. An application from 
the Rio Time Zinc Group to

assessed as rapidly as possible 
Mr David Harris (St Ives, O 
qaM there was a desperate 
situation at Geevor where it was 
likely the pomps were about to 
be switched off. if that happened 
the mine would be flooded new 
to reopen. Could not the Govern- 
ment provide assistance to keep 
the pomps going at least untfl 
the application by the mine had 
been decided? 

Mr Morrison said the Govern- 
ment accepted the need to move 
as fast as possible and on that 
would depend whether or not 
there could be care and mainte- 
nance work. ■ 

Mr Stanlev Cnnrther (Roth- 
erham, Lab) said it would be

disgrace fhl if a British industry 
which contributed many millions 


of pounds a year to the economy 
were allowed to die for lack of 
help from the Government. 

Mr Morrison said the Govern- 
ment was looking carefully at 
the applications to see whether 
they could meet the test of 
viability. More care could not be 
taken. 

Mr Robin Maxwell-Hyslop 
(Tiverton. O said the problem of 
the test of viability was that it 
depended on tbe movement of 
world prices of tin maybe fo ur or 
five years ahead and that figure 
could not be predicted. Would it 
not be sensible for the Govern- 
ment to take a risk to support 
employment rather than suffer- 
ing unemployment? 

Mr Morrison said that if there 
was to be in vestment in any of 
the mines in Cornwall it most be 
aimed at reducing" the cost of 
production. 


• During question time -in die 
House of Lords Lard Lucas of 
Chiltrorth, Under Secretary’ of 
State for Trade and Industry, 
said assistance would be 
commensurate with future op- 
erations being viable. It was not 
the Government's policy to pro- 
vide operating subsidies. 


A circular win be issued tomor- 
row (Wednesday) to the courts 
containing advice on the im- 
plications for them of the dis- 
pute with the Prison Officers’ 
Association. Mr Douglas Hard, 
tbe Horne Secretary, announced 
in a statement in tbe Commons. 
I will consider (he added) any. 
further measures which, may be 
necessary. 

He made -a further appeal to 
prison officers to look at tbe 
partage of proposals he. bad 
placed before them and to judge 
whether it was worth throwing 
that away by taking further 
industrial action. The Govern- 
ment, he said, could not conduct 
talks under such a continuing 
threat m this vital public 
service. 

Tbe sort of industrial action 
already seen at Gloucester 
Prison was unacceptable. Tbe 
Government would take all 
posable steps to sustain the 
right of governors to manage 
their , prisons and to protect 
prisoners and public from tbe 
consequences of POA action. 
Prison officers deserved to be 


ing the militant action that has 
token place, ! ask him to bear in 
mind the prison officers in 
Gloucester have been under 
considerable pressure as a result, 
among other things, of the 
presence of a special unit in the 
prison. At least one prisoner is 


not io use that “sS 


Suffering from Aids. 
They bav 


_ive a long history of 

fine service, of non-militancy, _ 
and I hope he will bear this in 
mind when discussions resume. 
Will he give an undertaking he 
will take whatever steps nec- 
essary Jf things g?i out of hand to 
protect the - citizens of 
Gloucester? ■ _ 

Mr Him!: Yes. 1 do not believe 
there is any threat to the security 
of Gloucester prison. Not only 


well paid, but the heav^burdCT 


of overtime must-be 

and there must be increased 
efficiency. Progress towards for- 
mal discussions about a range of 
new systems designed to meet 
all these objectives was being 
made when the call for indus- 
trial action went out. 

Mr Gerald Kaufman, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
home affairs, said prison officers 
carried out a duly and dan- 
gerous job in increasingly diffi- 
cult conditions caused, by the 
collapse of. tbe Government’s 
law and order policy and by the 
record crime wave which bad 
produced a huge increase in the 
prison population and unprece- 
dented overcrowding. 

Why not agree that there was 
a proper and sensible role for 
prison officers in deciding safe 
manning levels, particularly 
since the POA had offered to 
instruct its members to take no 
further action while talks were 
going on? It was a sensible way 
to solve these difficulties. 

Mr Hard said the neglect the 
prison service was suffering was 
the neglect of previous govern- 
ments to do anything about 
prison conditions. The Govern- 
ment had staffed over and 
above the increase in prison 
population. 

We were (he continued) very 
near agreement last week. We 
wrote on what he is talking 
about - the role of the POA in 
being consulted about manning 
levels. I wrote them a letter and 
they wrote back indicating this 
was very near to what they bad 
in mind.

Teachers’ pay dispute 
boosted enrolment 
at independent schools 


* 


Pupil numbers at indepen- 
dent schools have shown their 
biggest increase for five years, 
at a time when slate schools 
were experiencing the turmoil 
of the teachers' pay dispute. 

The growth last year — in 
the face of a 9 per cent increase 
in fees — was yesterday attrib- 
uted partly to the disruption 
caused by industrial action.

secretary of the National As-

pils in the past year, a rise of 
1-2 per cent, compared with a 
0.6 per cent rise in the 
previous year and a 0.2S per 
cent increase in 1984. 

There are now 419,475 pu- 
pils in the L300 Isis schools, 
compared with 414,562 in 
January last year, the biggest 
increase since 198L But the 
total number being educated 
privately is estimated 


„ is estimated at 

sfwiaffAri nf H^' 7 — : ,w " 550,000 children, or 6.5 per 
sociauonofHead Teachers, cent of all pupils. 

± JL3 i V nk lh * 1 parents are The increase is against the 
now dearly voiing wrth their background of a fall in the 




feet not only because of the 
ravages caused by the 
teachers' dispute, but aio? 
because parents can see very 
clearly the difference between 
the resourced independent 
sector and the inadequately 
funded slate sector” 

Mr David Wood head, di- 
rector of the Independent 
Schools Information Service 
(Isis), which carried out the 
census into independent 
school numbers, said- “How 
much of it is attributable to 
the disruption elsewhere no 
one can say with any certainty. 

“Many staff and parents in 
independent schools have 
shared the anxieties of their 
colleagues and friends in the 
maintained sector during a 
year of unprecedented 
turmoil.” 

The Ins figures show an 
increase of almost 5,000 pu- 


totaJ secondary school popula- 
tion of 3. 7 percenL 

The number of girls at 
independent schools has risen 
for the second year running; 
they now form 44 per cent of 
the independent school popu- 
lation. But the number of boy 
boarders dropped by 23 per 
cent, reflecting parents' desire 
to see more of their children 
by educating them at day 
schools. 

Another area of growth was 
pre-preparatory schools for 
pupils aged two to seven, 
whine numbers rose by 5 per 
cent. 

Fees ranged from £950 to 
£2.200 a term for boy boarders 
and from £1,000 to £1,700 for 
girls. Day boys’ fees varied 
from £360 to £1,500 and day 
girls' from £500 to £1,150. 

Almost 20 per cent more 
children received help with 


fees in this year's census. The 
money came from the schools 
themselves, local education 
authorities and the 
Government's assisted places 
scheme. 

Head teachers said yester- 
day that pan of the increase in 
fees was attributable to die pay 
rise paid to their teachers, 
which was higher in some 
cases than the 6.9 per cent, 
rising to 8.5 per cent paid to 
those in the state sector. 

Mr Christo per Everett, 
headmaster of Tonbridge 
School where teachers re- 
ceived a 10 per cent increase 
last year, said: “Parents recog- 
nize that, given the compe- 
tence and professionalism of 
teachers in independent 
schools, they receive their 
services for a very reasonable 
amount 

“All our parents understand 
fully that teachers in our 
schools must be paid 
properly.” 

Last year independent 
schools spent £3.7 million on 
new buildings and equipment 
and another £43 million on 
improvements to existing 
buildings and equipment 

Mr Woodhead said: “Our 
census confirms the trend to 
independent schools — but 
also the widening gap in 
resources between the inde- 
pendent and maintained sec- 
tors. 


'-.A 


f 90m refit for Invincible 


HMS Invincible sailed into 
Devonport yesterday for a £90 
million rent which will take 
her into the 21st century. 

The 27-month refit, -which 
at its peak will provide work 
for 600 men, includes increas- 
ing the Sea Harrier fighter 
strength from six to eight or 
nine and doubling the number 
of Sea ICing helicopters to 12. 

A 12-degree ramp will be 
fined to improve take-off and 


the 20,000-ton carrier wifi 
.become the first Royal Navy 
ship to have the new Dutch- 
made “Goalkeeper” close- 
range weapons system of 
rapid-firing guns capable of 
3.000 rounds a minute. 

New sonar and medium- 
range air and surface warning 
radar will also be fitted. 

The refit will mean consid- 
erable improvement to the 
accommodation for the ship's 


company, which will be in- 
creased by 250 to about 1,400. 

Details of the project were 
given at a press conference on 
board after Invincible’s arrival 
from Portsmouth and duties 
in the West Indies. 

Mr Robin Austin, the 
project manager, said he 
hoped to beat the 27-month 
scheduled time for the refit 
and added: “I have set a target 
some weeks shorter than that 
period.” 


Fear of job 
losses cuts 
incidence 
of strikes 

The number of private sec- 
tor strikes last year was the 
lowest since the mid- 1930s. 
largely because of the fear of 
unemployment, according to 
the annual report of the 
conciliation service. Acas, 
which was published yester- 
day. 

There were still many prob- 
lems in the public sector, but 
the state of the economy dom- 
inated the background to in- 
dustrial relations in 1985. the 
report states. It gives a warn- 
ing that the reduction in 
strikes tells only a limited 
story. 

“It says nothing about the 
effectiveness of people at 
work, the satisfaction they get 
from their jobs, the extent to 
which business objectives faD 
short of achievement because 
of other industrial relations 
reasons or any underlying 
sense of employee alienation 
or discontent,” the reportsays. 
One of the main changes 
during 1985 was the greater 
flexibility sought by manage- 
ment in its labour force be- 
cause of new technology, in- 
tense overseas competition 
and economic pressure. 

This was seen in greater 
flexibility between crafts and 
skills, in woriring hours, work 
methods, use of part-time 
workers and the relationship 
between pay and perform- 
ance. 

Evidence is growing that 
managements are deliberately 
separating “permanent" 
workers, who enjoy almost in- 
definite employment and fav- 
ourable terms and conditions, 
from “peripheral" workers 
such as those who are tempo- 
rary, selfemployed and sub- 
contracted, Acas says. 

The report praises improve- 
ments in management style 
and attitudes. “In many areas 
1985 saw a slow but welcome 
recognition that the solution 
of industrial relations prob- 
lems should owe more to 
proper planning and less to ad 
hoc and ill-considered ac- 
tions.” it says.

Baker backs Raleigh 
training expedition 


Up to 120 young people 
from some of Britain's most 
deprived inner “urban 
jangles” will be recruited to 
join the round-the-world Op- 
eration Raleigh expeditions 
led by Colonel John 
Blashford-SoelL 

Mr Kenneth Baker, Secre- 
tary of State for the Environ- 
ment, said yesterday 
thatftnes) the recruits, many of 
whom have never left 
Merseyside. Hull and London 
before, will be sponsored 
through a £300.000 govern- 
ment urban programme. 

They will be led through a 


lough selection and training 
programme later this year by 
seasoned adventurers from 
previous Operation Raleigh 
expeditions, including six 
young people who recently 
returned from the real jungles 
and swamps of Central and 
South America. 

Colonel Blashford-Snell 
said: “Britain abounds with 
great young leaders. But I 
think the urban jmigie today is 
far more difficult to deal with 
than the real jungle.” 

Recruitment will be com- 
pleted in July and the opera- 
tion will start next year. 


The use of ‘living cells to 
produce substances with me- 
dicinal properties and the 
complex molecules made syn- 
thetically by the chemicals 
industry are the basis i? 
modem biotechnology- Pearce 
Wright, Science Editor, re- 
ports od this source of 
tomorrow's drags. 

By the end of the decade 
doctors, farmers, industrial 
manufacturers and house- 
wives will be using new prod- 
ucts that rely on two of the 
main developments in genetic 
engineering: recombinani- 

DNA and monoclonal anti- 
bodies. 

The first describes how 
genes arc taken from one 
animal, organism or plant and 
spliced into another. The sec- 
ond refers to a method of 
producing tailor-made cells, 
designed for use as the active 
ingredient in drugs and 
vaccines. 

The new genetics have al- 
ready become established in 
solving some medical prob- 
lems. For example, without 
these advances insulin for 
diabetics could be in short 
supply by the end of this 
decade. 

The use of simple bacteria 
to synthesize elaborate protein 
molecules, such as insulin, is 
being used or under develop- 
ment for a range of substances. 

In particular, the vocabu- 
lary of scientists in this field 
contains increasing reference 
to iymphokmes. It is a term 
which covers an immense 
family of molecules which the 
body's defence system makes, 
but "which until the advent of 
genetic engineering could not 
be synthesized. 

Lymphokines that have re- 
ceived some public attention 
are two families of molecules 
with potential ami-cancer ac- 
tivity. They are the interferons 
and (he interleukins. 

Other natural substances 
being made include Factor 
VIII, the substance in the 
blood that stimulates cloning 
of blood and is absent in 


haemophilia, and plasmino- 
gen activator which can avert 
other blood disorders. 

This year tests have started 
on experimental vaccines 
against malaria. The advances 
in genetic engineering behind 
those discoveries should pro- 
vide the eventual vaccines for 
some cancers and for Ards 
(acquired immune deficiency 
syndrome). 

Many other vaccines are in 
the pipe-line for hepalilis-B. 
herpes, diphtheria, poliovirus 
and salmonella. A longer-term 
search is on for an answer to 
arthritis through genetic 
engineering. . , 

The ability’ to manipulate 
the genetic composition of 
cells for commercial purposes 
has brought a new breed of 
science-based companies into 
being. 

The first of the British 
newcomers in this field is 
Celltech laboratories, which 
has specialized in innovations 
in genetics to get more effec- 
tive diagnosis of various 
illnesses. 

Through new collaboration 
with the Imperial Cancer Re- 
search Fund, the scientists at 
Celltech have made an impor- 
tant advance in designing 
families of drugs that will 
attack tumours, without 
harming other tissues in the 
body. 

The latest approach is to 
employ the technique of mak- 
ing monoclonal antibodies, or 
Mabs. a Nobel Prize winning 
discovery made at the Molec- 
ular Biology Research Labora- 
tory at Cambridge. 

Molecular biologists can 
make Mabs that are like 
microscopic guided missiles. 
When injected into the body 
they home-in only on a select- 
ed organ or tissue 

A forecast by the economic 
analysis. Laing & 
Cruickshank. spanning medi- 
cine and veterinary innova- 
tions to industry and 
agriculture, put the commer- 
cial potential of biotechnology 
as more than 18000 million 
worldwide by the early 1990s.

Science report 

Russians claim heart 
monitor innovation 

By a Special Correspondent 


A British invention, dating 
from the early 1960s, has 
enabled Soviet scientists to 
develop a heart movement 
• recorder which, it is claimed, 
diagnoses cardiac abnormali- 
ties earlier than possible at 
present 

The magnetic cardiograph, 
conceived by a group of re- 
searchers at the Kharkov In- 
stitute of Cardiology and the 
physical engineering institute 
of low temperatures of the 
VtUkranian Academy of Sci- 
ences, measures magnetic 
fields in the heart, providing 
important data not obtainable 
from standard electrocardio- 
gram tests. 

It is based on the Josephson 
effect a Nobel prize-winning 
discovery by Brian Josephson, 
now a professor of physics at 
Cambridge University. 

Working at the Cavendish 
Laboratory in 3962, he de- 
signed an extremely sensitive 
cryogenic electronic device to 
measure magnetic fields. Now 
known as the Josephson junc- 
tion, it consists of two strips of 
metal, placed in liquid helium. 

Cooled to a temperature 
near absolute zero and sepa- 
rated by a thin insulator, the 
strips become a “sandwich” 
which is extremely sensitive to 
changes in magnetic field. 


Equipment based on Profes- 
sor Josephson ’s discovery has 
been applied to detect oO, date' 
ancient pottery and identify 
sub-atomic particles. 

Experimental computer cir- 
cuits based on the Josephson 
junction have been designed by 
IBM. Japanese scientists plan 
to employ the Josephson junc- 
tion as fast switches in com- 
puters, although these are 
unlikely to arrive before the 
end of the century. 

• The Soviet researchers] 
claim a unique magneto-diag-| 
oostic cardiograph can ideuti 
fy magnetic signals sent by the 
beaut, especially the stimula-l 
tion and contraction of cardiac| 
muscles. 

Another advantage is that a 
patient need not be wired up, 
only to be within range of the 
equipment. The electrical po- 
tentials generated by the areas 
where ECG electrodes are in 
contact with the skin, can 
obliterate signals of abnormal- 
ities. The cryogenic magne- 
tometer can identify the bit- 
magnetic signals coming from 
the possible source of a i — 
defect. 

The Soviet scientists believel 
the equipment and techniques j 
developed by them could also] 
be used feu the study of the 
brain-

He said the US hoped ihe 
Soviet Union would provide 
information about the acci- 
dent in “a timely manner”. 
The US was seeking addition- 
al information and requested 
the closest possible coordina- 
tion among all concerned

France ready 
to help 
treat victims 

Paris (UPI) - France yester- 
dav offered to help the Soviet 
Union treat those contaminat- 
ed by radiation from the 
nuclear power plant disaster. 

M Francois Cogne. director 
of the Institute of Protection 
and Nuclear Safety of the 
Atomic Energy Commission, 
said Moscow had not asked 
France to help in what was 
believed to have been either a 
fire at the four-reactor plant or 
a reactor meltdown. 

M Cogne said France had 
been treating victims of nucle- 
ar accidents since Ivds. 


a graphite-moderated light- 
water reactor. It boils water, 
which is carried through a core 
of uranium fuel. 

The core also includes rods 
of graphite, which are used to 
control the nuclear reactions, 
because the graphite slows 
down neutrons. 

Another choice is to use 
water as a moderator, as in the 
American type of pressurized- 
water reactors. 

The other choice is in the 
way ihe heat is removed to the 


ing makes the Russian type 
different from any other, 
choice of design in the com- 
mercial electricity generating 
field. 

It is not clear why the 
reactor should have over- 
heated and caught fire. A 
rupture of the water supply 
system would cause a sudden 
rise in the temperature of the 
core. But the presence of 
graphite should have given the 
operators some time to regain 
control when getting an emer- 


fuel. amounting to a total of 10 
billion curies of radioactivity. 
It is vital that these gases 
should not be allowed to 
escape. 

In the American type of 
water reactors a system of 
double-walled buildings act to 
contain the release. This kept

Bonn puts 
scientists 
on standby 

From Frank Johnson 
Bonn 

West Germany yesterday 
offered to place experts and 
equipment from its highly 
advanced nuclear power in- 
dustry at the disposal of the 
Soviet Union, but officials 
said here that such help can 
only be deployed effectively if 
ihe Soviet Union gives more 
details of the accident. 

The first visit to the Foreign 
Office here of Mr Yuli 
Kvitsinksy. the new Soviet 
Ambassador, was brought for- 
ward to yesterday so that the 
accident could be’ discussed. 

He accepted the offer of 
West German help, but appar- 
ently he was unable to give the 
sort' of details which would 
enable the West Germans to 
decide what sort of accident it 
was. and what kind of assis- 
tance was needed. 

It was thought possible that 
Mr Kvitsinksy had not him- 
self been fully informed. 

The Minister of the Interior, 
Herr Friedorich Zimmerman, 
called the Soviet delay in 
reporting the accident, and the 
subsequent lack of detail, 
“unacceptable”. He gave as- 
surances that West German 
government scientists would 
be carrying out tests through- 
out the days ahead on radia- 
tion levels here. 

The Government's view, 
for the time being, is that, 
portly because of the winds, 
Germany is not in danger. 

The Minister of Science. 
Herr Heinz Ricsenhuber. said 
that West German reactors 
were more advanced than 
those in the SovietUmon and 
“absolutely secure”. 

He said that the Interna- 
tional Atomic Energy: Agency 
in Vienna should now conduct 
a test of Soviet reactor 
standards. 


World agency warns of return to oil 


Paris (Reuter) — Industrial- 
ized nations must carry on 
generating nuclear power in 
order to safeguard their inde- 
pendence in energy production. 
Miss Hdga Steeg. the Interna- 
tional Energy Agency (1EA) 
director, said yesterday. 

Miss Sieeg was speaking in 
Paris, where the 21 -nation 
agency, which co-ordinates en- 
ergy policy to uy to ensure 
supplies, has its headquarters. 

She said she had no new 
information on the Ukraine 
accident. 

She said the 1EA member 
countries “cannot forego the 
possibility of nuclear power 
generation". Otherwise they 
would slip back into depen- 
dence on oil supplies from the 
Organization of Petroleum Ex- 
porting Countries (OPEC). 

She added that the govern- 
ments of Western industrial- 
ized countries worked closely 
together on nuclear safety stan- 


dards. “Operating safety is no 
problem here." she said. 

Asked whether there was a 
danger of 1EA members be- 
coming too dependent on Sovi- 
et natural gas supplies if 
competitive oil prices delayed 
or prevented the development 
of new gas fields. Miss Steeg 
said it was agency policy not to 
be overdependent on any one 
supplier. 

“Gas supplies of European 
countries up to the middle of 
the 1990s are already broadly 
secured bv contracts with the 
Soviet Union, the Dutch. Nor- 
way and. to a lesser extent the 
Algerians.” she said. 

She said negotiations were 
continuing over the develop- 
ment of Norway's giant Troll 
gas field in the North Sea. 

• BONN: West Germany's 
anti-nuclear Greens party 
called for the closure of all 
nudear power stations, saying 
the Soviet disaster had shown 


atomic power was too' danger- 
ous to be used. 

The Greens are spearheading 
protests against construction of 
West Germany's first nuclear 
reprocessing plant in 
Wackersdorf, Bavaria, and 
news of the Soviet accident 
appeared certain to fuel opposi- 
tion to the project 

The party is the only one in 
West Germany to oppose out- 
right the use of nudear power. 
• MANILA: President Aquino 
will convene her Cabinet today 
to rule on a proposal to scrap 
the Philippines* first nudear 
power plant, her spokesman, 
Mr Rene Saguisag, said here 
(AFP reports). 

The S2.I billion (£1.35 bil- 
lion). 620-megawatt plant in 
Bataan province, west of here 
was built by the US firm 
Westinghouse over an eight- 
vear period under the regime of 
former president Marcos. 


The disastrous accident at 
the Chernobyl nuclear power 
plant north of Kiev has come 
as a blow to the fast-expanding 
Soviet nudear energy indus- 
try. It is doe to double its 
present capacity by the end of 
.the Kremlin’s new five-year 
plan in 1990. 

In addition to the frighten- 
ing human repercussions, dip- 
lomats last night were be- 
ginning to estimate the 
possible economic consequ- 
ences to the state, where 
nudear energy has been her- 
alded as the white hope in the 
faro of stagnating domestic oQ 
production. 

Encouraged by the lack of 
internal anti-nuclear protests 
and assisted by a sizeable 
industry specializing in the 
manufacture of nudear reactor 
components, the Soviet Union 
has developed one of the most 
active nudear construction 
programmes in the world, with 
nearly 30 plants destined for 
construction in the next 
decade. 

A number of the new plants 
are under construction near 
large centres of population, 
including the Ukrainian town 
of Kharkov and Odessa on the 
Black Sea. Only two years 
ago, the then Minister of 
Power and Electrification, Mr 
Petr Neporozhny, said: “Such 
stations are very economical 
and can be built in the 
immediate vicinity of a city 
because they do not emit 
smoke and are totally safe.” 

Western experts in Moscow 
have often expressed concern 
at the Soviet nudear safety 
record and intelligence ana- 
lysts believe that the authori- 
ties have covered np at least 
three nudear accidents since 
1954, when Russia became the 
first country to use nuclear 
power to generate electridty 
for commercial purposes. 

The worst is believed to 
have occurred in an area just 
east of the Urals in late 1957 
or early 1958, and Western 
sources believe that the area 
may still be suffering from the 
effects of contamination. 


Poor attention to safety is 
attributed to a number of 
factors indudiug complacency' 
encouraged by the political 
system, the obsessive secrecy 
which still surro u nds the un- 
clear energy programme and 
pressing demands from' the' 
central planners fbr more 
speed in construction. 

It was not until the early 
1980s that any internal debate 
about the potential hazards 
began, with a growing number 
of academics expressing their 
concern in the offidal press. 

An example of the problems 
came in 1982 when the' chief 
engineer of the Balakoivo plant 
was quoted- bf- Sovietskay* 
Rossiya as idling a- supplier: 
“We examined your pipes with 
ultrasound — complete' junk. 
There are even defects that 
can be seen with the naked 
eye. Moreover, the metal Is not 
of the spedfication called fbr 
in the plant After.all, It is a 
nudear plant” 

Although there are differ- 
ences over official figures, the 
most widely accepted show 
that 39 reactors are now in nse 
inside Russia, most without 
containment vessels to trap 
escaping radiation. 

This crucial safety device, 
widely used in the West is 
understood to have been incor- 
porated in the new plants 
under construction here. 

Nudear power is now re- 
sponsible for 11 per cent of the 
Soviet Union's national elec- 
tricity output or 170,000 mil- 
lion kilowatts and is doe under, 
the new five-year plan to 
provide 20 per cent of planned 
output by 1990. 

The dismal performance of 
the oil production industry — 
where a number of senior 
officials ■ have recently been 
sacked or repfrunaiaaled — is 
seen in the West as the main 
explanation for the great en- 
thusiasm being shown by Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov, the Sov- 
ietleader, for large-scale in- 
vestment in new nudear 
plants.

From Oil! Kivinen

Anger was mounting in 
Finland yesterday in the wake 
of the Chernobyl nuclear di- 
saster because the Russians 
were extremely slow in warn- 
ing their Scandinavian neigh- 
bour of the leak. 

It . took nearly 24 hours 
before the Finnish authorities 
themselves revealed that they 
had measured higher than 
normal levels of radioactivity 
in the country. 

Radioactivity decreased in 
Finland yesterday thanks to a 
brisk northerly wind, which 
drove the clouds .south. The 
highest level of radiation was 
recorded on Sunday evening 
in Kajaani, central Finland, 
near the Soviet border.

Swedes angered by Moscow’s failure to issue warning 


From Christoplter Mosey 
Stockholm 

As radioactivity from the. 
Soviet nuclear disaster began 
to diminish here yesterday, 
anger mounted at Moscow's 
failure to alert the Nordic area 
to the dangers of radiation 
spreading from the Ukraine. 

Mrs Birgitta Dahl, the Min- 
ister for Energy, faced protests 
from anti-nuclear demonstra- 
tors when she opened an 
underground storage facility 
for spent nuclear fuel at the 
Oskarshamn unclear plant in 
southern Sweden. 

She said she took it for - 
granted that Moscow would 
now allow international con- 
trol of its civil nudear pro- 
gramme. She indicated that 
Sweden had been unsuccessful 
in past attempts to pressure 
Soviet authorities to increase 
safety requirements. 

Degens Nyheter, the leading 
< 



Mrs £>ahf: confident of 
improved safety measures. 

Swedish daily, yesterday criti- 
cized unclear safety measures 
taken by Stockholm to deal 
with fallout from the Soviet 
disaster. “Preparedness for 
incidents at nuclear plants 
must be reviewed." it said. 


Radiation from the disaster 
was first registered automati- 
cally by two measuring instru- 
ments at the National Defence 
Research Institute in Stock- 
holm at 2pm on Sunday. But 
this was not known until staff 
arrived for work on Monday 
morning, as the institute is not 
manned at weekends. 

Mr Curt Bergman, of the 
Defence Ministry research es- 
tablishment, said radioactivity 
in Sweden had halved over- 
night bat was still between 10 
and 100 times the normal 
leveL He said this did not 
mean it had stopped emulating 
from the Ukraine bat had 
merely ceased reaching 
Sweden. 

For radiation to endanger 
health it would have to be 
10,000 times the normal level, 
he said. 

Mr John Christer Lindhe, 
spokesman for the, Swedish 
K 


Radiation Protection Institute, 
said that at one place in 
central Sweden where it rained 
yesterday, radioactivity in the 
rainwater had reached 100 
times the normal level and 
residents were-advised. not to 
use it 

Measurements taken at 
Sweden’s Forsmark nuclear 
power plant yesterday showed 
1,000 units per square metre of 
iodine 131 and 30,000 units 
per square metre of Neptunian 
239. Normally there would be 
no measurement of either 
substance. 

A spokesman for the Swed- 
ish Institute for Radiation 
Protection said radiation ex- 
tended roughly from the town 
of Gavie down to Nykoping on 
the east coast and inland a few 
miles. Radiation was also 
detected on the Baltic Island of 
Gotland. 

The Soviet disaster has 


reactivated a bitter controver- 
sy in Sweden over its own 
nuclear power programme. 

In a national referendum 
held in 1980, Sweden voted 
that its nuclear programme be 
limited to 12 reactors and that 
these be phased oat after 25 
years. 

The referendum effectively 
depolitkazed the nudear issue, 
which In J978 led to the 
resignation of Mr ThorWoro 
Falldin, the then Prime Minis- 
ter and a staunch opponent of 
nudear power. 

Bat, at the time,, the 
People's Campaig n Against 

Nudear Power — which ted the 
fight against Sweden's “peace- 
ful atom" programme — an- 
nounced a new fight aimed at 
reminding the public of nude- 
ar hazards. In the wake of 
Chernobyl, it has been vocal in 
deno uncing the use of nudear 
power. . 


Sweden's 12 reactors are 
locate d at four plants, the most 
controversial of which is at 
Barseback. across the narrow 
sound from the Danish capital 
of Copenhagen. 

It was at Forsmark, a power 
station north of Stockholm 
with three boiling water reac- 
tors, that the first -Western 
traces of radioactivity from the 
Soviet disaster were found. 

It was first ' thought .the 
radiation came from a teak in 
Forsmark itself and the plant 

was evacuated. Bnt the evacna- 
tion took too long according to 
union leaders, who yesterday 
called for revised safety 
procedures! . .

officials some cheer in an 
otherwise gloomy and poten- 
tially disastrous financial

£2 billion over the target 
Deep divisions would now 
arise within the Community 
over where to make savings. 

The Budget Commissioner, 
Mr. Henning Christophersen, 
is expected to present a Com- 
mission proposal , today for a 
supplementary budget of over 
£1 billion to be raised among 
member states, partly in order 
to meet the cost to the EEC of 
the fall in the dollar. 

The 1986 budget is still not 
finally agreed even after this 
week's meeting of finance 
ministers. 

They were unable to agree 
on which of the many factors 
causing what Mr Lawson 


called the “horrific financial 
overrun” this year were 
“exceptional. " The largest ele- 
ment in the overrun is extra 
farm spending. 

Mr Lawson said the farm 
price fixing exercise had been 
a reasonable response, but 
along with currency changes 
in the European Monetary 
System it added up to a big 
challenge to budgetary disci- 
pline. Mr Lawson insisted 
there was no question of 
breaching the 1.4 per cent 
ceiling on national VAT con- 
tributions to EEC revenues. 

Apart from the fall in the 
dollar, fills year's overspend- 
ing stems partly from the need 
to pay Britain's rebate under 
arrangements which were 
agreed two years ago. 

M. Jacques Delon, the pres- 
ident of the Commission, said 
the Commission favoured 
budgelary rigour, but not “a 
mechanical application of 
budgetary discipline," which 
would be detrimental to EEC 
policies. 

Officials said the danger was 
that the Commission's pro- 
posed supplementary budget 
would bring EEC spending 
perilously dose to the 1.4 per 
cent VAT ceiling, and that the 
situation would worsen fiir-j 
ther if the fell in the dollar 
continued. 5 


Blacks in 
May Day 
showdown 

From Ray Kennedy . 

Johannesburg 

Over one million blacks are 
being urged to stay away from 
work tomorrow in a show- 
down between their increas- 
ingly potent trade unions and 
employers over a paid May 
Day holiday. 

Although the Government's 
attitude is that it is at present 
outside the dispute, the police 
have served warning that they 
will take stem action against 
intimidators trying to stop 
people going to work. 

Radical black groups and 
trade union organizations 
want both May Day and June 
16 — the anniversary of the 
1976 Soweto riots - to be 
declared public holidays. 

Some have suggested they 
should replace Republic Day 
(May 31) and the Day of the 
Vow (December 16). the Afri- 
kaner commemoration of the 
Voortrekker defeat of Zulus. 

Rallies to mark the 100th 
anniversary of May Day are 
being planned throughout the 
country. 

In Durban, police are pre- 
. paring for clashes between 
supporters of the 500,000- 
strong Congress of South Afri- 
can Trade Unions and the 
pro-capitalist United 
Workers’ Union of South 
Africa. 

The 2 5 fr 000 -member Na- 
tional Union of Mineworkers 
has called for a total work 
stoppage in the country's gold 
and coal mines. 

• LONDON: The Common- 
wealth “eminent persons 
group" on South Africa are to 
meet here today to consider 
whether a message they have 
been sent by President Botha 
is sufficiently constructive for 
them to pay a second visit to 
South Africa next month

Washington said this dis- 
criminated against American 
exports of grain and soya 
beans, and it has threatened to 
retaliate by raising tariffs on 
EEC wine, fruit juice, baked 
goods, cheese and pork. 

Brussels then produced its 
own list of American prod- 
ucts. which include honey, 
bourbon, soya cake and rice. 

The feeling in Brussels is 
that the trade war language 
has got out of hand and that 
direct contact between Euro- 
pean and American leaders at 
Tokyo will cool things down. 

Six of the summit partici- 
pants are from EEC nations. 
In addition, the EEC will be 
represented by M Jacques 
Defers, President of the Euro- 
pean Commission, and Mr 
Ruud Lubbers, the Dutch 
Prime Minister and current 
president of the EEC Council 
of Ministers. This is only the 
second time the Council Presi- 
dent has taken part in the 
annual summit. 

EEC officials acknowledge 
that terrorism will be high on 
the agenda, and there are 
hopes that the rift in the 
Western alliance over how to 
deal with Libyan terrorism 
can be patched up. 

But EEC officials insist that 
the heart of the Tokyo agenda 
is monetary and financial 
stability, together with interest 
rates. Third World debt and 
global energy problems. Ter- 
rorism should not dominate 
the discussions, they said.

on rest. 

Meanwhile, hundreds of 
thousands of people turned out

troops were advancing on 
Basra in a new long-awaited 
offensive from the Fao penin-

have destroyed four Iraqi 
brigades on Monday nighL

said reinforcements had been 
pouring in to the territory held 
by Iranian troops, notably 
across a steel and roam rubber 
floating bridge over the Shart 
al -Arab waterway running 
along the frontier. 

The Iranian news agency 
claimed that in Monday 
night's fighting more than 
4.000 Iraqi soldiers had been 
killed or wounded. It added 
that a surprise attack in the 
peninsula had paralysed Iraqi 
forces. 


KarmaTs 
absence 
blamed on 
illness 

From Michael Hamlyn 
Delhi 

There was continued specu- 
lation in Western embassies in 
Delhi yesterday about Presi- 
dent Babrak Kannal of Af- 
ghanistan, who foiled, to 
attend his country's national 
day celebrations last weekend. 

His absence was explained 
by the Government media as 
being due to medical treat- 
ment in Moscow taking longer 
than expected, implying he 
was still there. References to 
him in the state-controlled 
media subsequently have been 
few — a marked contrast to the 
normal state of affairs. 

In his place on tbe parade 
reviewing stand — which polit- 
ical students say reveals the 
true stale of affairs — was 
Sultan Ali Kishunand, the 
Prime Minister, whose recent 
visit to Moscow received 
much publicity both in the 
Soviet Union and in Afghani- 
stan. One Western embassy 
suggested this may put him in 
line for the presidency. Other 
observers, however, rule him 
out because be is a Shi a 
whereas most of the popula- 
tion are Sunni Muslims: he 
also comes from the Hazrajal 
where it is thought tbe 
country's leader should come 
from the majority ethnic 
grouping of the Pushtu. 

He was flanked by Dr 
Muhammad Najibullah, the 
former head of the secret 
police force, Khad, and a 
member of the party secretari- 
at. and Mr Noor Ahmad 
Noor, a member of the Polit- 
buro. The keynote address 
was made by Mr Nazar Mu- 
hammad. the Minister of 
Defence.

Sabotage fears 
as Emperor’s 
60 -year reign 
is celebrated 


. From David Watts, Tokyo 


Japan's 124th Emperor cel- 
ebrated his sixtieth year on the 
Chrysanthemum Throne yes* 
today as tbonsands of police 
stood by on special security 
duties. 

A ceremony of austere for- 
mality beneath a spotlighted 
rising sun Dag marked the 
longest reign of any emperor m 
a dynasty believed the oldest 
in the world. 

The first 14 emperors are 
now thought to have been 
mythical figures bat the next 
in line. Emperor Ojin, is 
believed to have ruled from the 
late fourth century. 

Six thousand guests, includ- 
ing sportsmen and women, 
politicians and personalities 
from the arts world, saw 
Emperor Hirobito arrive for 
the ceremony in perfect spring 
weather. Neither Empress 
Nagako nor Crown Princess 
Michiko was well enough to 
attend. 

In contrast to tbe vintage of 
the imperial dynasty the build- 
ing in which the celebrations 
were held is one of tbe newest 
in Tokyo. 

Police were -stationed every 
5ft around the site and all 


roads were sealed off in fear of 

attacks by radical leftists who 
have pledged to smash both 
the imperial celebrations mid 
the summit meeting of seven 
industrial countries in Tokyo. 

In the early hours of yester- 
day a man was blinded when a 
bomb went off in the public 
lavatory of a Tokyo park about 
two miles from tbe palace. 

Train services were halted 
for 90 minutes in two places 
after sabotage attacks claimed 
by the country's most radical 
left-wing group Chnkaku-ha. 
Communications cables were 
burnt at Osaka in tbe west and 
on a prestige line in central 
Japan. Services ran late after 
the resumption. 

The same group has threat- 
ened to assassinate both tbe 
Emperor and the Prime Min- 
ister. Last year Chukakn-ha 
threw the Tokyo rail system 
into chaos after simultaneous 
attacks put several commuter 
lines out of action. 

In a speech of congratula- 
tion, Mr Yasuhiro Nakasone, 
the Prime Minister, said that 
bonds between Emperor and 
people had grown stronger and 
stood tbe test of history. 



The Emperor, reading from 
a formal speech in bis charac- 
teristic high-pitched voice, 
hoped for peace and the 
happiness of the world 
community. 

Though the actual date of 
the anniversary does not fall 
until December the Govern- 
ment derided to hold the 
ceremony to coincide with tbe 
eighty-futh birthday of the 
Emperor which fell yesterday. 

Opposition from tbe Social- 
ist and Communist parties has 
centred on the Government's 


ese of tbe anniversary for 
political reasons In trying to 
prolong Mr Nakasone's ten- 
ore and boost the ruling 
Liberal Democratic Party in 
elections which are due to be 
held in Jane. 

Rallies in opposition to tbe 
celebrations were held all over 
the country with one of tbe 
largest in Tokyo organized by 
labour and women's groups. 
The rally called for the public 
to re-evaluate the relationship 
between democracy and the 
imperial system.

Pupils lose 
in Spain’s 
school war 


Norway’s 
PM faces 
vote test 


From Richard Wigg 
Madrid 


More than two and a hall 
million Spanish schoolchil- 
dren are likely to miss school 
all this week as owners ol 
private schools stage whai 
they call a “suspension ol 
activities" in protest at the 
Socialist Government’s new 
policy on education subsidies. 

Senor Jos£ Maria Mara vail, 
the Education Minister, ac- 

effecuTbad* ^^T^ctonsive" 
The organizers claim that on 
the first day of their protest 95 
per cent of the country’s 8,000 
privately-run schools dosed. 


Spain’s so-called “schools 
war” is not about parents’ 
right to send their children to 
fee-paying schools, but about 
efforts by Senor MaravaU to 
exercise stricter control over 
the public funding of such 
schools, which in many cases* 
cover 100 per cent of the 
running costs. 


At state in the dispute Is a 
total of 135,000 million pese- 
tas (£630 million), in stale 
subsidies due to be allocated 
in the new school year. 

The funding, particularly in 
secondary schools, was started 
by the Franco regime with a 
minimum of supervision, and 
the school owners and tbe 
parents’ associations resent 
the minister’s determination 
to limit their powers. 

The “schools war" has dear 
ideological undertones. The 
Socialists are certain to mate 
political capita] out of Senor 
Maravall’s reforms in the 
forthcoming general election 
as most of the private schools 
are run by lay organizations of 
the Catholic Church. Many 
parents believe their children 
gel a better education in such 
schools than in the state 


sector. 


Spain's right-wing Opposi- 
tion, which took Seflor 
MaravaJl's education law to 
the Constitutional Court and 
lost, has eagerly backed the 
stoppage. 

The school owners claim 
that more than 600 private 
schools will be denied subsi- 
dies by Senor MaravalL But 
the Education Ministry says 
that the number would be less 
than 200. 

The owners maintain that 
the Socialists axe trying to u kiU 
ofT private schools.

President Reagan's commission of inquiry into January's 
shuttle disaster has uncovered a remarkable story of poor 
management, safety sacrificed to cost-cutting and danger 
signs ignored or rationalized. Keith Hindley explains what 
happened and how the space agency fell from grace. 


A puff of smoke less 
than ball' a second 
after ignition was 
the first visible sign 
of impending catas- 
trophe as the Challenger space 
shuttle lifted off on January - 
2$. The smoke became ihe 
focus of the presidential 
commission's investigation, 
but the inquiry also fought its 
way through a complex ad- 
ministrative fog to reveal 
astonishing evidence of slack 
management. ignored 
warnings and safety sacrificed 
io expediency. 

It is reasonable to conclude 
that Challenger should never 
have lifted off. The main 
factors are: 

• The makers of the solid- 
rocket boosters wanted to 
cancel the flight but Nasa 
persuaded them to change 
their recommendation. 

• A string of other experts, 
some within the National 
Space and Aeronautic? Agen- 
cy (Nasal itself, had raised 
doubts about the safety of 
seals in the boosters, which 
proved fatally flawed in the 
prevailing conditions. 

• The weather played a cru- 
cial dual role — the tempera- 
ture was below die safe 
operating level for the seals 
and a windshear buffering 48 
seconds into the flight proba- 
bly caused the second, fetal, 
leak of gases. 

• Nasa's budget cuts of the 
last few years seriously affect- 
ed its attitude to safety 
measures. 

The first, tell-tale puff of 
smoke came from the right- 
hand solid rocket booster. 
These boosters bum a rubbery 
solid that is cast in sections, 
four of which are stacked and 


bolted together to build up 
each booster with heat-resis- 
tant putty. Two large rubber 
seals j oin* (he segments. 

I t will probably never be 
determined whether 
these seals would have 
lasted through the two- 
minute bum of the 
booster. In fact they must 
have been shaken badly by the 
uindshcar buffeting after 48 
seconds because within sec- 
onds smoke appeared again. 
This leak of burning gases was 
the ultimate cause of the 
disaster. 

The weather is the chief 
suspect. Tests showed that the 
rubber rings become hard and 
slow to seal at temperatures 
below about 50T. The launch 
took place at air temperatures 
dose to freezing point. 

This had worried engineers 
from Morton Thiokol. who 
made the boosters, and at an 
eve-of-launch conference they 
voted for postponement of the 
launch. Nasa tried to persuade 
the Thiokol engineers to re- 
consider. They refused. Hav- 
ing failed to gain dear 
approval for a launch, the 
Nasa officials reversed the 
thinking and asked whether 
there was any firm evidence 
that the seals were unsafe at 
low temperatures. The answer 
was no. After much heated 
discussion. Nasa asked for a 
Thiokol management deri- 
sion. Managers agreed to rec- 
ommend a launch. 

These reservations by Thio- 
kol engineers never reached 
senior Nasa management 
charged with making the final 
decision to launch. Worse, the 
commission discovered that 
the seals had worried engi- 


neers and even budget officials 
for at least four years. They 
had been listed as “criticality 
one" (a term describing com- 
ponents whose failure could 
lead to the total loss of a 
shuttle) in 1982. 

A study was started and it 
was agreed that ihe shuttle 
could fly in the meantime. 
The back-up requirement was 
waived, Nasa expressing great 
confidence in the effectiveness 
of the first seal. 

Thiokol were less confident 
One of their engineers said he 
and his colleagues “held their 
breath** for the first two 
minutes of every launch and 
celebrated when the boosters 
burnt oul He admits he was 
shaking as he watched the 
Challenger rise. 

Public concern about the 
situation was eventually 
raised by a Nasa budget 
anaiysL Richard Cook, in July 
last year. He said the seals had 
to be improved: the loss of a 
shuttle would be disastrous 
financially, apart from the loss 
of life. W’ithin weeks, several 
independent memos from 
Thiokol engineers were issued 
raising concern that some- 
thing should be done urgently. 
One suggested that all shuttle 
flights should be postponed 
until the problem was 
resolved. 

The commission has also 
discovered that engineers 
from Rockwell, the shuttle's 
prime contractor, had reserva- 
tions that shattered iddes 
could damage the shuttle's 
delicate heal tiles and said a 
launch may might not be safe. 
Yet another group was wor- 
ried that Challenger had been 
sitting on the launch pad for 
38 days in cold, frequently wet

and sometimes freezing condi- 
tions. They knew that booster 
seals on military rockets like 
the Pershing had shown a 
tendency to absorb water into 
the seal gaps. If that water 
froze it would prevent the 
seals working until the steam 
produced on ignition had 
blown out 

The presidential commis- 
sion has been shocked by the 
way Nasa management sched- 
uled the run-down in shuttle 
funding based ou the most 
optimistic of estimates. Nasa 
has always maintained that 
the shuttle would be a com- 
mercially viable launch vehi- 
cle. covering its costs once 
development was complete. 
This could be achieved only 
by cutting costs and increasing 
the launch frequency (well 
over half the shuttle's operat- 
ing costs are fixed overheads 
spread over whatever number 
of flights are made each year). 

So the budget for booster 
rocket development has fallen 
from £89 million to a planned 
£7 million next year while an 
allocation for dealing with 
unexpected problems fell from 
J 0 per cent of the research and 
development budget in 1982 to 
less than one per cent this 
year. Nasa has been behaving 
as if the shuttle was a mature, 
tested technology, and has not 
wanted to hear about major 
new problems which would 
cause budget difficulties. 

The commission found a 
histoiy of safety being com- 
promised. to some extent, by 
deferring repairs, minimizing 
the need for some modifica- 
tions and muting the urgency 
of some engineering recom- 
mendations. Many worried 
engineers have emerged from 
the Nasa woodwork in recent 
weeks. 

The commission has learnt 
that in the case of 740 items 
where the need for a back-up 
system was regarded as essen- 
tial. it was waived. Cutbacks 
have even affected manage- 
ment in Washington but al- 
ways more on the engineering 
than administrative levels. 
Milton SiJveira. Nasa's chief 
engineer, says his staff has 
been reduced by a third. 
“We're now too short-handed 
to carry out the job”, he says. 
“We’re handling more flights, 
yet taking manpower cuts. 
We're just not able to take a 
dose look at everything. The 
Challenger accident was pre- 
ventable and budget cuts are 
partly to blame.” 

Another problem has been 
the rivalry between each of the 
Nasa research centres. They 
are all in competition for 
funds, and communications 
between them have faltered as 
the rivalry grew. All. but 
especially the Goddard Space- 
flight Centre in Huntsville, 
Alabama, have become secre- 
tive and tended to communi-

cate policy derisions to their I 
colleagues without revealing 
the discussions behind them. 

The commission’s revela- 
tions will shake Nasa as 
nothing else has. The organi- 
zation clearly has to change. 
“We will not launch again 
until safety-related problems 
have been properly addressed 
throughout the Nasa system”, 
Richard Truly, the new shuttle 
programme director, says. But 
that will require money on a 
scale that the US Congress 
may not be prepared to supply 
and delays that shuttle cus- 
tomers may be unable to 
swallow. 

Above all. Nas3 and the US 
establishment must throw 
away the notion that the 
shuttle is a commercially via- 
ble space launcher. Viewed 
realistically, the shuttle cannot 
now compete commercially 
with Ariane, the European 
Space Agency's launcher, and 
may not be able to compete 
with Russian vehicles already 
on offer and Japanese and 
Indian launchers under 
development 

Certainly the shuttle disas- 
ter — and the commission's 
report — demonstrate that 
Nasa's long run of successes 
was heavily dependent on its 
access to almost limitless 
aerospace activities. 

Nasa’s wort is organized 
into projects, its engineers 
working in close cooperation 
with (usually) one main out- 
side contractor and a number 
of sub-contractors. Each col- 
laborator has its own hierar- 
chy of engineers and managers 
and each project is overseen 
by a management team in 
Wash ington. 

I n rts heyday, during the 
Apollo moon landing 
project, Nasa built an 
impressive reputation 
for sharp, competent 
management, dealing with the 
parade of unforeseen prob- 
lems that always arise with 
projects being conducted at 
the cutting edge of high- 
technology research. 

Nasa has always been in- 
volved with audacious leaps 
in high technology since only 
impressive major projects 
have any real chance of being 
fended enthusiastically by the 
US Congress and Senate 
But in recent years, massive 
overspending in major 
prefects at a time when annual 
budgets were felling has re- 
moved the freedom from 
Nasa's decision-making pro- 
cess. Everyone is acutely 
aware that fends are short and 
problems can no longer be 
solved by throwing money at 
them. 

Therefore engineers and 
management have been forced 
lo look at alternative, cheaper 
solutions — “fix it" rather than 
“redesign it”.

COUNTDOWN TO DISASTER 


The Presidential commiss-

happen when the space shuttle 
Challenger rose off die launch 
pad on January 28. A detailed

photography, engineering data 
radioed to the ground or 
recovered from the shuttle's 
flight recorders has allowed a 
precise chronology of die brief 
flight to be reconstructed. The

The announcemen t

\ xS 


F rom the team that convulsed 
the Irish Republic with an 
anti-abortion amendment 
and reform of the family 
planning laws comes the next 
a ™J probably final battle between 
church and state: the removal of the 
constitutional ban on divorce. 

_.j5? four years since Dr Garret 
FitzGerald came to power on a wave 
of support from liberal urban voters 
have at times seemed like a long- 
running serial on the question of the 
Irish and sra. A constitutional amend- 
ment forbidding abortion was passed 
in 1983 after a divisive referendum 
during which the country was given 
. one huge sex education lesson. Last 
year a police inquiry into a child's 
murder turned into the “Kerry babies" 
case, where attitudes towards adultery, 
women, sex and illegitimacy raiw 
under the spotlight; even the modest 
reform in 1985 of contraceptive laws 
brought agonizing from the church 
and its members militant 
But behind the contraceptive issue 
was the much bigger question of 
divorce, which Dr FitzGerald is now 
confronting by means of a rcferen- i 
dum, probably in June, to remove the 
constitutional ban. 

Thai personal bequest of de Valera 
to future generations, the written 
constitution of 1937, states in Article 
41 that "no law shall be enacted 
providi ng for the grant of a dissolution 
of marriage". But without divorce, in 
the words of Mrs Nuala Fennell, a

the law and so assuage present public 
concern about the dangers of rapidly 
drifting to divorce on demand. 

The five-year qualifying condition 
has been welcomed by ihe Divorce 
Action Group for both political and 
social reasons. One member, Andrea 
Bridges, separated from her husband 
for 10 years, says: “As a person who 
has gone through the separation and 
who has made another relationship. I 
would say you need about five years to 
gel over a marriage. I have a few 
friends who would have been disas- 
trously married twice and even three 
times if they could have remarried in 
less than five years." 

S ince her marriage broke up, 
Andrea, aged 38. has made a 
second relationship' with Tom 
Kennedy, a marketing execu- 
tive. by whom she has had a 
son, Cten. a brother for the two 
daughters of her marriage. She refused 
to accept her solicitor's advice to try' 
for a civil annulmem as she was 
unwilling to say there had never been a 
marriage or to confine her daughters 
to the status of being illegitimate. 

Under Irish law. Cian has a claim on 
the estate of Andrea’s husband, but 
not of his real father, and so u> ensure 
security for him they have taken out 
an insurance policy to be held in trust 
until he grows up. “But in many 
similar cases the child would be in 
limbo if anything happened to the 
parents", she says. 

She wants the divorce so that, in 
Tom’s words, they can marry' and put 
“everything above board”. Andrea 
asked: “Why in Ireland should your 
husband be tied irrevocably to you 
when you might hate him?" 

Despite offering assistance and 
guidance to those faced with the 
trauma of marital breakdown, both 
the Roman Catholic Church and 
Family Solidarity will oppose 1 the 
referendum. The bishops will empha- 
size the indissolubility of marriage but 
will widen the issue to include the 
effect on the family and on children in 
particular. Aware that support for 
divorce is growing, the hierarchy is 
anxious to avoid making the issue a

planning, it will further weaken and r 
damage the institution. j; 

Bishop Joseph Cassidy insists: i 
“The pulpit will be used but not fj 
abused. We do not dictate. We teach 
and the people are free to follow their 
own conscience as the final arbiter.” 

Others suspect that hardliners will 
be unable to resist using the pulpit to 
point to the consequences for Ireland 
and ns people if divorce is introduced. 
The speed with which the government 
acted, taking the church and Family- 
Solidarity by surprise, was an attempt 
to settle the issue quickly and prevent 
priests thundering to their fiock ■ 
Sunday after Sunday. * 

Although Family Solidarity denies ; 
that.it is a battle between church and 
stale. Mrs Bernadette Bonnar, a 
member of its executive, ays the 
referendum will be a. "close-run 
thing”. To her the referendum is an 
opportunity lor the people to defend < 
traditional values and culture. “May- i 
be we can give a lead. This change is 
for the worse and we must stand up 
and try and stop it. We would be a 
worthless nation to do otherwise." ■ 
A lifelong Fine Gael supporter, she 
is contemptuous of Dr FitzGerald, for 
whom divorce is an issue he cannot 
lose politically whatever the outcome. 
He needed to act because a new third 
party, the Progressive Democrats, has j 
been drawing support from exactly the • 
liberal urban vote that put him in 
power, and his much trumpeted 
“constitutional crusade” to remove 
laws which allowed critics of the 
republic to say “Rome rules" had 
produced little. If the referendum is ! 
lost the Taoiseach will at least be able I 
to say that he has attempted to live up 
to his reputation as a “liberal j 
crusader. i 

The church will live to fight another I 
day. probably aware that it is only jj 
delaying divorce. Defeat will deeply | 
disappoint those affected by broken 9 
marriages, but as Andrea Bridges says: jj 
“We will have our normal Irish R 
solution to an Irish problem. There is » 
no one bener than the Irish at finding a |

It was the realization 
£T that middle age had 
surreptitiously round- 
wfc &a ed our contours and 
stiffened our joints 
that prompted us to acquire a 
dog. Balking at the suggestion 
of jogging or aerobics to work 
us back to youth, we opted for 
the gentler alternative of wa Ik- 
ing. A dog seemed the only 
way of ensuring that we kept to 
our good intentions. 

Our knowledge of canine 
breeds was limited and we 
liked the idea of offering 
refuge to an abandoned ani- 
mal. so we set off for the 
nearest Dog Rescue Home. 

Our enthusiasm was soon 
dashed when we discovered we 
were not allowed even to see 
the dogs until we had been 
“approved". 

Alarmed, we enquired what 
this meant. As well as being 
told that someone would come 
to inspect our house, we were 
presented with a lengthy ques-

donnaire to complete. Was our 
garden fenced in? Had we 
children under five? Was there 
someone in the house all day? 

It was the last question that 
particularly concerned me. I 
timidly muttered something 
about working a couple of 
hours every afternoon, to 
which I received the stern 
response: “We do expect our 
owners to be in most of the 
day. Of course, they can go out 
shopping 

Going home dogless, I be- 
gan to fear that we might not 
be “approved". It was not so 
much being refused a dog that 
concerned me. but ibe shame 
of my home not being consid- 
ered habitable for one. What 
were they looking for? 

For a whole week I managed 
to keep the house tidy. I 
refused all temptations to go 

on shopping sprees and stayed 
indoors. After a week the 
effort did not seem north the 
dog and I decided i would 
neier get on with anything 
that needed a tidy house. We 
had also run out of food. 

1 had almost forgotten about 
the whole matter when the 
inspector from the dogs' home 
arrived. Clipboard in hand, 
she swept through the piles of 
ironing and strode into the 
garden. Our unfenced plot 


stretched into a scented blue- 
bell wood surrounded by 
school playing fields. “Don't 
choose a jack Russell, he'll 
disappear", she said as she 
pressed (be “approied” card 
into my hand. 1 felt as if 1 had 
passed an exam. 

And thus it was that we fell 
in love with an insatiably 
active Jack Russell and took 
him apprehensively home. He 
troiced into our sitting room, 
sniffed around, and then 
cocked his leg regally on our 
precious red velvet sofa. My 
husband froze. 

it was not long before I 
discovered why ideal aban- 
doned dog owners- are people- 
who stay at home. They are 
either so exhausted from being 
dragged across the country- 
side by an ecstatically happy 
dog, or else they hare to stay in 
to preterit the dog bowling, 
miserably because it thinks, if 
left for a few minutes, that it Is 
being abandoned for a second 
time. 

We do get our exercise come 
rain or simw. but we are no 

thtnatr.or fitter, and the dog is : 
fatter. Bui a new and unex- 
pected dimension has come j 
into our lives. Apart from a j 
mutual admiration society be- j

Innovations in 
technology and 
training this week 
will give women a 
better chance of 
early detection 

piials and clinics but some 
leading gynaecologists be- 
lieve ihai there is a need for 
yet more training in its use. 
Cowiopoiiun launched a 
campaign to fund 
colposcopcs because of its 
concern over the links- be- 
tween genual wans — an 
increasingly .common symp- 
tom of sexually transmitted 
disease - and cervical cancer. 

Following a colposcopy 
and (he results of a biopsy, 
the infected area of the cervix 
can be vaporized by a laser 
beam directed by a specialist 
using a colposcope. Bui this is 
not the only remedy. 

The procedure is usually 
performed in out-patient 
clinics and under a local 
anaesthetic, although in some 
cases that may noi be consid- 
ered necessary. Most patients 
feel well enough after the 
treatment to walk out of the 
clinic, although many prefer 
to lake the rest of the day off 
work, and some may be 
offered a rest bed. The conse- 
quences of the treatment are 
slight bleeding and a mild 
discharge, which may last for 
up to a fortnight. 

Professor Frank Sharp, 
professor of gynaecology and 
obstetrics at Sheffield Uni- 
versiiy. was one of the first 
specialists in Britain to use 
the laser. “The treatment is 
9b per cent effective — that 
son of success rate anywhere 
in medicine is extremely 
impressive", he said. 
Professor Sharp starts his 


latest intensive, two-da v 
training course in the use ot 
colposcopes J® r 

gynaecologists at the North- 
ern General Hospital in Shel- 
field tomorrow. A similar 
course also starts tomorrow 
at the Roval Northern Hospi- 
tal in London, under the 
direction of a leading- special- 
ist. Mr Albert Singer. Those 
attending the courses will 
later improve their skills 
under supervision for up to 
nine months before applying 
them to patients. 

“Every woman who has an 
abnormal smear deserves a 
colposcopy". Professor Sharp 
said. “We can tailor its use to 
individuals but everything 
depends on women having a 
smear test.” 

The success rate 
is very high 


After laser treatment, pa- 
tients are required to undergo 
two follow-up smear tests and 
two further colposcopies at 
intervals of four and ten 
months In practice, these 
checks are often carried out 
six months and a year after 
the initial treatment. 

At many NHS hospitals, 
specialists arc' faced with a 
constant demand from pa- 
tients referred by their gener- 
al practitioners. 

“We are overwhelmed by 
the numbers". Professor 
Sharp said. “We dealt with 
about 1.000 new cases last 
year in Sheffield.” 

A consultant gynaecologist 
in north London saidrThere 
is an urgent need for more 
resources. A waiting time of 
three months for a 
colposcopy is becoming more 
common. “For women afraid 
that they may have cervical 
cancer, that is an 
unacceptably tong period."

Chernobyl is not Sizewell c ?.? 1 l the 


- Because the whole topic arouses 
such strong feelings, any serious 
accident at a nuclear power plant 
is bound to affect nuclear energy 
programmes everywhere. Once 
the world discovers what hap- 
pened at the Chernobyl station, 
however, there is good chance that . 
it will turn out to be a peculiarly 
. Soviet problem. 

- Although it - lags behind the 
United States, and even France, 

: the -Soviet Union ranks as a 
substantial producer of nuclear 
electricity, with about the' same 
number of nuclear generating 
plants as Japan and two and a half 
1 times more than Britain. In addi- 
tion. it is naturally the dominant 
partner in its collaboration with 
Eastern Europe, where all the 
j power reactors now operating are 
of Soviet design. Yet its own 
I reactor programme has evolved, 
by international standards, in an 
idiosyncratic fashion. 

Like their Western counter- 
parts. Soviet scientists and en- 
gineers experimented from the . 
j 1 950s with a variety of designs for 
nuclear power plants. From, that 
process, two separate types 
emerged as the pillars of Soviet 
nuclear electricity supplies. One is 
a family of pressurized water 
reactors (PWRs), known locally by 
their Russian initials VVER ana 
broadly similar to the kind 
commercially prevalent in the 
West (The new plant the Central 
Electricity Generating Board 
wants to build at Sizewell ts a 
PWR and so . was the ill-feted 
reactor at Three Mile Island.) 

Besides making them in two 
sizes for domestic use, the Soviet 
Union has supplied some 15 
WER units to its East European 
neighbours, as well as two to 
Finland, and is either building or 
planning others in places as far 
afield as Cuba, Libya and North 
Korea. 

The WER reactors have gen- 
erally worked well once in service, 
and are intended to be the 
mainstay of Soviet nuclear expan- 
sion for the rest of this century. 
There has been great difficulty, 
however, in building them quickly 
enough.' especially- since - 1983 
when subsidence and bad manage- 

The Secretary-General of the 
United Nations, Javier Perez, de 
Cuellar, will arrive for talks in 
London next month amid the 
worst financial crisis his organiza- 
tion has laced. Despite the im- 
plementation of housekeeping 
economies, there is talk of about 
2,000 jobs being lost and deep cuts 
in UN spending on disaster relief, 
peacekeeping operations and anti- 
drugs activities. With no long- ' 
term solution in sight, the 
implications for tbrftitwroffoe ' 
UN and its agencies, less than a 
year after the organization cele- 
brated its 40th birthday, are likely ' 
to be profound. 

The UN is funded by the 159 
member countries, each of which 
pays a percentage of the budget 
according to its means. Britain 
contributes just under 5 per cent, 
less than France and West Ger- 
many. and less than half that paid 
by Japan. By far the biggest single 
contributor is the United States, 
upon which the UN relies for no 
less than a, quarter of its annual 
requirement 

Trouble has been building up 
for years, mainly because of the 
tendency among some govern- 
ments to withhold their contribu- 
tions or at least to be slow in 
paying. The Soviet bloc has been 
one of the worst offenders, refus- 
ing for political reasons to pay 
towards UN peacekeeping opera- 
tions among other things. But by 
the end of last year as many as 18 
states were in arrears and Britain 
claims to be the only permanent 
member of the Security Council 
never to have defaulted on its 
financial obligations. 

The slide towards bankruptcy 
has been accelerated by two pieces 
of US legislation during the sec- 
ond half of <985 — the Kassebaum 
Amendment of last August and 
the Gramm-Rudman Act in 
December. The former demanded 
that the American contribution 
should be reduced from 25 to 20 
per cent next October, unless a 



ment combined to cause serious 
damage to the main WER assem- 
bly line at Volgodonsk. As a result, 
nuclear capacity in the USSR is 
likely to fell almost 40 per cent 
below its planned levels by 1990. 

One result of this delay is that 
all the more weight has come to 
rest on the second pillar in the 
Soviet nuclear power programme: 
the RBMK reactor. These re- 
actors. one of which was involved 
in the Chernobyl accident, are 
very different. Their low-enriched 
uranium foel is cooled by ordinary 
water — as in a PWR — but is set 
in a graphite moderator — as in a 
British Magnox or advanced gas- 
cooled reactor plant The RBMK 
fuel elements are distributed 
among no fewer than 1.693 sepa- 
rate vertical channels, indepen- 
dently cooled, in each of which the 
fuel can be exchanged without 
shutting down the reactor itself. 

Nothing quite like the RBMK 
has ever been built for commercial 
electricity purposes . outside the 
Soviet Union. Indeed, the design 
is so cumbersome that Its adop- 


tion by Soviet planners can only 
be explained on the basis of its 
excellent qualities as a machine 
for producing not only electricity 
but also plutonium for civil or 
military use. 

Partly because of the delays to 
the VVER programme, RBMK 
reactors still supply the bulk of 
Soviet nuclear electricity. Since 
the first of the full-scale RBMK 
units was completed in 1973 
outside Leningrad, a total of 15 
have entered service at five sites: . 
four each at Leningrad, Kursk and 
Chernobyl two at Smolensk and. 
most recently, one upgraded unit 
at Ignalino in Lithuania. Together 
they provide 60 per cent of the 
Soviet Union's nuclear generating 
capacity, which in turn produces 
some 1 1 per cent of the country's 
electric power. And 15 more 
RBMKs are still under construc- 
tion or os Soviet drawing-boards. 
If the Chernobyl accident reveals 
some basic flaw in the RBMK 
design, therefore, it will strike a 
heavy blow to the whole national 
electricity system. 


Henry Stanhope on the financial crisis 
threatened by cuts in American aid 

Autumn famine 
the United 


system of “weighted voting" was 
adopted so that those who paid 
most money would have the 
greatest say — on financial mat- 
ters anyway. The latter ordered 
immediate cuts across the board 
in US federal spending with a view 
to balancing the budget by 1991. 

So far the US has withheld more 
than $33m. in addition to $2m it 
was dinging on to for other 
reasons. But what most worries 
the UN now is the order of cuts 
threatened in October when the 
US administration enters its next 
financial year, with both the 
Kassebaum and Gramm-Rudman 
restrictions taking effect 

Perez de Cuellar has already 
ordered a number of economies,

number of consultants for in-

Some departments have also been 
threatened with a 10 per cent cut 
in their budgets. But reserve funds 
had already been used up by last 
December and with the crisis 
likely to deepen in the autumn, the 
UN is having to face up to some 
hard decisions. 

Congress is more interested in 
bringing pressure on the UN to 
pul its house in order than to save 
itself hard cash. Congressmen 
were deeply affronted by a UN 
proposal (since deferred) to spend 
S70m on a new conference centre 
in Addis Ababa at a time when 


Ethiopians were starving. A simi- 
lar project to build a centre in 
Bangkok was also held to be 
totally unnecessary — as was a 
proposal to hold three special 
conferences, away from New 
York, on southern Africa. (The 
additional cost of staging them 
away from headquarters was in 
itself equal to the total annual 
contribution to the UN of its 40 
poorest members.) Big financial 
decisions need a two-thirds major- 
ity in the UN. But two-thirds 
could be made up by the 106 
poorest nations, whose combined 
contributions come to less than 2 
per cent of the total budget

We still know too- tittle about 
events at Chernobyl to assess that 
risk. All that seems certain is that 
there has been catastrophic dam- 
age to at least some of the fuel in 
one of the station's four reactors, 
accompanied by a fire involving 
graphite as well as fuel materials. 

The most obvious cause would 
bea loss of coolant, allowing fuel 
in some of the pressurized chan- 
nels to overheat, burn and ignite 
more fuel and the surrounding 
moderator. But the large number 
of independent cooling circuits in 
an RBMK makes it hard to believe 
that *his could happen in routine 
circumstances without extraor- 
dinary negligence on the part of its 
operators, it may be, therefore, 
that the accident began during 
some special operation, such as an 
exchange of fuel elements while 
the plant was still running. 

In any case, one important 
consideration is that what has 
happened in the Ukraine seems 
unlikely to have direct technical 
repercussions on specific power 
reactors outside the Soviet Union. 
Ostensibly because of its construc- 
tion requirements, but presum- 
ably also because of its plutonium- 
producing qualities, the RBMK 
design has Dever been offered to 
other countries. 

None of that will prevent waves 
of justified or unjustified alarm 
about nuclear power spreading 
across the world from Chernobyl- 
Nor does it by any means rule out 
the potential need for other coun- 
tries to learn important lessons. 
Any reactor can experience some 
sort of loss-of-coolant accident. 
And there are reactors in a number 
of other countries, including Brit- 
ain, which use graphite as a 
moderator or are designed for on- 
load refuelling. 

But the peculiar combination of 
characteristics in the RBMK type 
may yet be that it will be 
somewhat easier to contain at least 
the technical ramifications of this 
accident within the borders of a 
single country than it has been to 
confine its radioactive feli-ouL

port The EEC countries, which 
between them pay about 20 per

been appointed to examine the 
options and a number of ideas are 
already under discussion, includ- 
ing one that would limit the

however, look likely to mean 
higher payments from other mem-

Why Rome is turning on Reagan 


Rome 

Since last autumn, an almost 
unprecedented bitterness has 
marked the relationship between 
the United States and Italy. And, 
as if to underline the unhappy 
truth that a close liaison is under 
real Strain, both sides maintain 
that they are the ones remaining 
true to their joint principles. 
“Under the leadership of Bettino 
CraxL" the prime minister’s 
friends repeat, "the Italians will 
never move away from their 
iovahy.to the Atlantic alliance." 

‘But they have' been abruptly 
reminded by the Americans that 
83 per cent of the people in the US 
approved of the attack on Libya, 
which the Italians continue to 
deplore. Craxi was particularly 
angered by Washington press 
reports that he was one of the 
European leaders who gave secret 
support to the bombing while 
publicly condemning it 

Italy provides the main Medi- 
terranean bases for the Sixth Fleet 
as well as a series of Nato and 
other American bases, including 
the cruise missiles at Comiso. In 
fact when that agreement was 
made — with remarkably little, re- 
action. despite the faa that Italy 
has die western world’s largest 
Communist party — there was a 
strong Italian feeling that the least 
they could now expea from foe 
Americans was to be treated with 
more respect. . . 

This desire for change m foe 
rclationshipis port ofa new Italian 


self-confidence. The country is 
growing used to political stability. 
Despite frequent quarrels within 
the five-party coalition govern- 
ment Craxi has only offered his 
resignation once — and that was 
when a division occurred overflow 
to behave towards foe U& 

That minor crisis followed in 
the wake of last autumn’s AchiUe 
Lauro affair, in foe course of 
which an American passenger was 
murdered. In foe first serious dash 
between Rome and Washington, 
the contention arose over the 
American action in forcing down 
on Italian soil foe Egyptian air- 
craft taking foe ship's hijackers to 
Tunisia. Among them was tbe 
plot's alleged mastermind. Abu 
Abbas. 

The Italians are still angry that 
foe Americans very nearly took 
Abu Abbas by force. In reply, foe 
Americans point to their having 
fulfilled all the requirements laid 
down in foe new extradition treaty 
between foe two countries. 

Ttie incident has marked foe 
quarrel over the bombing of 
Libya. The US ambassador to 
Italy. Maxwell Rabh. has done his 
best to explain that once foe US 
makes up its mind to do some- 
thing that something is done; The 
Italians have a twofold reply. 
First, they claim that they know 
rather more than the Americans 
about how to deal with terrorism, 
having managed to beat it at home 
without resorting to repression. 
Second. Craxi believes that inter- 


national terrorism will not be 
halted by bombing, but by lower- 
ing tension within the Mediterra- 
nean area. Last year he tried to 
convince the moderate Arab pow- 
ers to hold an international con- 
ference on the Palestinian 
question, with the Israelis and tbe 
PLO’s Yasser Arafat also present. 
Bui that plan literally went up in 
smoke last October, when the 
Israelis bombed Arafat’s Tunisian 
headquarters. 

The attack briefly preceded foe 
hijacking of foe Achilie Lauro, and 
if it was only coincidentally the 
precursor of foe hijack, it is now 
seen here as foe precedent fol- 
lowed by the US against Libya. 

The question of Italy’s policy 
towards foe Arabs is less clear-cuL 
There was dissent within foe 
government over the wisdom of 
trying to design a Mediterranean 
policy which was not in line with 
what foe Americans expected. 
There was also criticism of the 
way in which Giulio AndreottL 
foe foreign minister, not only 
placed great importance on Italy's 
relationship with the Arabs, but 
also insisted on maintaining di- 
alogue wifo Syria and Libya. He. 
however, agrees with tbe prime 
minister that allies can best serve 
foe alliance by making an active 
contribution to solving foe prob- 
lems in their own area. 

A lot has also been made of foe 
differences between Andreom and 
defence minister Giovanni 
Spadolin^ who briefly led his 


Tbe Russian radioactive plume 
spreading across Scandinavia is 
also casting its shadow over 
British politics. The seriousness of 
the accident is bound to intensify 
the political polarization on nu- 
clear power currently taking place 
in. this- country. Nuclear power 
politics fc fast becoming fissile. 

In Httte more than a month, two 
senior political figures, John 
Wakeham and John Cunningham, 
have become involved in serious 
public rows about nuclear power. 

Wakeham. the government's chief 
whip, has a 1Z000 majority in his 
constituency of Colchester South 
and Maldon that looks vulnerable 
to the Alliance. A proposal to 
dump radioactive waste at 
Brad well jn foe constituency was 
immediately seized upon by his 
SDP opponent as just tbe issue to 
tip foe balance. Not sutprisingly, 

Wakeham has become a convert 
to the Nimby (not-in-my-back- • 

. yard) principle. A chief whip who 
thinks radioactive waste is too 
dangerous for his constituency 
will find it hard to persuade other 
Tory MPs it is safe for theirs. 

Michael Brown has already ' 
threatened to resign and force a 
by-election if his Humberside 
constituency of Brigg and 
Cleethorpes is chosen and other 
Tory MPS threatened with radio- 
active waste dumps in their 
constituencies fed the same. Wil- 
liam Wakiergrave, foe minister 
responsible for making the final 
decision, was left in no doubt 
about the strength of : feeling 
among Bedfordshire MPs during a 
recent visit to Elstow. 

In March, Tribune carried a 
sharp, if coded, attack on Neil 
Kinnock. written by Peter Hain, 
vice-chairman of the Labour Co- 
ordinating Committee. Hain's at- 
tack sounded a familiar and — 
given the quarter it came from — 
dangerous refrain, warning 
Kinnock against “drift by foe 
leadership away from positions 
and decisions democratically de- 
rided by conference". 

The Labour leader's crime was 
to have supported a vigorous 
defence of-nuclear power by John 
Cunningham, the party’s environ- 
ment' spokesman. At its' 1985 
conference. Labour carried by 
over 60 per cent a motion calling 
for “a halt to foe nuclear power 
programme and a phasing out of 
all existing plants". Cunningham, 
whose constituency includes 
Sellafield, has subsequently made 
it clear op a number of occasions 
that he will not tie bound by this 
decision. Kinpock has joined him 
-in foer commitment- 
“''Meanwhile foe debate within 
the Labour Party continues to 
intensify, ks Scottish conference' 
recently passed a resolution call- 
ing for a -mothballing of Torness , 
and other uncompleted nuclear 
plants. This prompted a fierce ' 
counter-blast from Cunningham Alliance. 


in Tribune in which he accused 
midear critics in the Labour Party 
of being “careless of those thou- 
sands of workers and their fam- 
ilies dependent on the industry 0 ■ 

All qf which should be music to 
the ears of Alliance candidates in 
both north and south. So far, the 
cautious compromise position on 
nuclear enemy agreed by the 
Liberals and SDP before foe 1983 
election has held up well There 
has been no public sparring on the 
issue and very little private dis- 
cussion either within or between 
tbe parties. 

However, this, period of calm 
may now be coming to an end. 
There are currents in both parties 
pressing for a more positive 
commitment to nuclear power. 
The recently reconstituted SDP 
energy committee lists among its 
members both Robert Madennan, 
the MP for Caithness and Suther- 
land, which includes Doonreay, 
and John Lyons, the power 
workers’ leader and long time pro- 
. nuclear campaigner. Alliance 
split-seekers have long looked to 
this issue as a profitable bunting 
ground. As the political tem- 
perature on nuclear matters 
continues to rise they may well 
find better sport than in the past. 

And tbe temperature does seem 
likely to rise. The Russian in- 
cident, the recent spate of ac- 
cidents at Sellafield, the search for 
sites for radioactive waste dumps, 
and the publication of the Sizewell 
report later in the year will all fuel 
the fires of debate. Furthermore, 
fo.ere are distinct signs that the 
Central Electricity .Generating 
Board is becoming uneasy about 
the outcome of the next election. 
Its fears may be warranted in that 
all foe opposition parties are 
firmly opposed to the pressurized 
water reactor obsessively favoured 
by the Board’s chairman and foe 
Prime Minister. The current spate 
of board-inspired articles, tbe 
shifting ground ofits case for foe 
PWR and its increasing pressure 
for fast decisions on foe rest of the 
programme are all moves de- 
signed to head off worse trouble in 
foe future. - . 

But they may not be wise. The 
chief success of the nuclear in- 
dustry has been to keep itself oat 
of foe party-political debate. The 
political parties have been weak 
and ineffectual directors of energy 
policy, no match at all for the 
energy industries before whose 
Whitehall lobby they have all 
fallen helpless victim. A political 
consensus, largely founded on 
nuclear industry half-truths, has 
stifled serious political discussion 
of nfadear power. Now that this 
consensus is collapsing, and public 
opinion is moving firmly against 
more nuclear power, the electricity 
board's efforts to force foe issue 
may only intensify the debate.

The other day I turned on foe 
radio and found myself listening 
to an interview which went some- 
thing like this . . . 

“And your committee has defi- 
nite proof that it is on the 
increase?" 

“Oh, definitely. Twenty years 
ago foe statistics were not-al all 
disturbing, but now'it is threaten- 
ing to get out of hand." 

“Has. it reached epidemic 
proportions yet?" 

“No, but unless action is taken 
soon, we fear that it will” 

“What kind of action are you 
calling for?" 

“Official action, and the sooner 
foe better. The government must 
pot teeth into existing legislation, 
but above all it must make more 
money available to the people in 
foe field." 

• You’ve probably heard con- 
versations like h yourself. The 
people concerned are caring, con- 
cerned . and. aware — and you 
haven't tbe faintest idea what 
they're talking about It could be 
anything: drugs, butter, aircraft 
noise, cyclists’ deaths on foe road, 
child abuse or even calling people 
by their first name as soon as you 
have been introduced. 

If you miss the opening ex- 
change, when they identify foe 
subject, you might as well miss the 
whole interview. It’s like switch- 
ing on the test match to get the 
score, and hitting one of those, 
patches where foe commentators 
forget to mention it. 

Here's another common 
conversation: 

“It is, quite literally, priceless. 
There is nothing else fike it in foe . 
country." , 

■ “What would be the effect if it 
did leave Britain?" 

“I think Britain’s heritage 
would be irreparably poorer. It has 
become part of our life, over these 
many years, and it is quite 
inconceivable that we should ever 
be without it." 

“Can foe money be raised in 
time?" 

“1 think so. But il isn't foe 
money that is so important as 
simply, making foe public aware of 
foe danger. If we can alert foe 
public to foe ride, then half foe 
battle is won." . 

What are they battling foi? A 
rare butterfly? An old Italian 
painting? One of Brand’s iron 
hulks? Sir Roy Strong's mous- 
tache? It simply isn't possible to 
tell from foe words, because they 
never repeat what they are talking 
abouL You get one chance, ^and 


that's it. The truth is, it's not 
worth listening to anyway. Most 
interviews on TV and radio are 
identikit conversations, virtually 
interchangeable after the opening 
sentence. 

“What attracted you to ft in foe 
first place?" 

“Well actually, a friend asked 
me along and I- thought I'd have a 
go, just out of curiosity, and after 
that it just snowballed." 

“And now you are Britain’s 

leading exponent." , 

“WeU, 1 wouldn’t say that * 
exactly! But I have been very, very 
lucky.” 

“Some people would say i( was 
rather a, well strange way of 
spending most of your time." 

.“That’s because they’ve never 
tried it. It’s a wonderful way, not 
just of enjoying myself but of 
meeting lots of people. 1 can’t 
imagine bow I ever got along 
without it” 

Falconry? Nude bang-gliding? 
Dancing the tango? Doing com- 
puter portraits of famous people? 
Walking on stilts? Listening to 
radio conversations and trying to 
guess wfaat they're about? 

I think it might alarm foe 
average expert if he realized that 

when be is talking, it is impossible * 
to work out fiis field of expertise, 
because he sounds like all the 
other experts. Not foal you have 
to be .an expert — you can be a 
total outsider caught up in some 
weiid disaster .. . 

“People were very calm. There 
was no real panicking at all.” 

“But you must have been very 
frightened” 

“Well yes, but really a thing like 
that happens so quickly you don’t 
• have much time to be scared It’s 
afterwards you realize just how 
close you were.” •, 

“And how is foe situation * 
n&tfT 

“Things are under control now. 
People have rallied round tremen- 
dously and everyone is doing their 
bit, fooiteh 2 expect ft wifi be days 
before things are really back to

Earthquake? Train crash? 
Bomb? Motorway pile-up? Or 
simply being asked to talk to foe 
media? It certainly seems to be on 
the increase. ’Hie government has 
to do something before it is too , 
late. It cap only do irreparable*- 
harm to our British heritage. The *

NUCLEAR PARANOIA I 


Nuclear power is, to many, an 
unknown quantity which in- 
spires fear. So is the Soviet 
Union. Accordingly, the 
.combination of the two in 
what is now believed to be the 
world’s biggest nuclear disaster 
has consequences which reach 
far beyond the vicinity of 
Chernobyl in the Ukraine 
where the accident happened. 

Even without Chernobyl, 
the Soviet Union was facing an 
image problem. The new 
generation of Soviet leaders, 
headed by Mr Gorbachov, had 
stated its intention of rectify- 
ing matters with a full-blooded 
public relations campaign. 
They had called for more 
access to information, more 
respect for the “human factor" 
- including safety at work and 
a nod towards environmental 
considerations. The circum- 
stances surrounding the 
Chernobyl accident show that 
no real progress has been 
made. 

What 


is more 
disturbing,there is nothing in 
the way the accident was 
handled by the Soviet authori- 
ties to suggest that it would 
have been made public unless 
the radioactive cloud had 
alerted the Scandinavian 
countries to the fact of a large 
radiation leak somewhere ra 
the Western USSR. 

So far as the much-vaunted 
“human factor” is concerned, 
progress appears to have been 
just as negligible. If reports by 
specialists such as Dr 
Medvedev are true, the major- 
ity of Soviet nuclear power 
stations are built without the 
son of safety precautions that 
are not only standard, but 
obligatory in the West. 
Chernobyl 1986 may prove in 
retrospect to have been what 
Three Mile Island was not — 
and so far no Western nuclear 
mishap could be — because of 
the stringent safety measures 
that are observed. 

Until now, the Soviet 
Union's apparent disregard for 
human safety — in the way it 
builds its nuclear power sta- 
tions. where it sites .them (near 


centres of population) and the 
lack ofinfonnation it provides 
when something subsequently 
goes wrong — could perhaps 
have been dismissed as an 
internal matter for the Soviet 
authorities. It can be dismissed 
■ as such no longer. 

The fact that neither the 
Soviet Union's East bloc allies 
nor the countries of Scandina- 
via — both of which were 
affected by abnormal levels of 
radiation after the accident — 
were informed about the ac- 
cident until their own in- 
struments detected it 
demonstrates a remarkably 
cavalier attitude to the in- 
terests of other countries and 
other people which is intol- 
erable from a country which 
aspires to the status of a 
nuclear superpower. Such a 
status rests not only on might, 
but also on responsibility. 

Moscow's response to 
. Chernobyl exhibited no sense 
of responsibility, either to its 
own people or to its neigh- 
bours. And if the Soviet Union 
cannot be trusted to behave 
responsibly in a matter such as 
this, what prospect is there for 
it to show responsibility in the 
wider world of international 
relations? Once again; the 
judgement of the Soviet 
leadership — this time a new, 
younger and ostensibly more 
flexible leadership — has been 
revealed as flawed and worse. 

In the next few years there 
will be untold economic reper- 
cussions. The Western part of 
the USSR, including the 
Ukraine, has the country's 
densest concentration of heavy 
industry. Soviet industry is — 
despite attempts to cut 
consumption — still a prof- 
ligate. user of-energy. Yet the 
Western pail of the country is 
the poorest in terms of natural 
energy resources. The answer 
was — and is planned to be 
until the year 2000 — to build 
dozens of nuclear power sta- 
tions. 

If one of these is now out of 
commission, the impact on 
Soviet industrial development . 
will be serious. If the accident 


prompts a reassessment of the 
whole nuclear power pro- 
gramme, as it should, Mr 
Gorbachov's ambitious 
development plans are bound 
to be set back. This means 
hard choices for the leader- 
ship. Can it afford to reduce 
energy exports— and therefore 
hard currency revenue — in 
pursuit of its development 
programme? Alternatively, 
can h afford the dashed hopes 
of the public that would result 
from an economic slowdown? 

A second effect of the ac- 
cident will be increased sup- 
port for the anti-nuclear and 
environmental movements 
not only in the West but in the 
Soviet Union and Eastern 
Europe as well. In the Eastern 
bloc, a fledgling environ- 
mental movement now has 
evidence that nuclear power 
stations can , under certain 
circumstances (Soviet and 
East European circumstances), 
present risks to the civilian 
population. This will 
encourage the growth of 
environmental pressure 
groups in countries where non- 
official pressure groups are 
discouraged The potentially 
destabilizing effect of this 
development should not be 
underestimated 

For the lime being, the 
Soviet authorities could mini- 
mire the significant damage — 
to their reputation at home 
and abroad, to their energy 
programme and to social 
stability - by making public 
concern for nuclear safety its 
own cause. In addition to the 
measures outlined below, they 
could launch, or rather 're- 
launch. a programme for 
truthful information even 
when it includes bad news. 

But whatever they decide to 
do, Chernobyl where, accord- 
ing to the Soviet announce- 
ment “there were casualties", 
is likely to remain in the 
international memory as a 
symbol of Moscow's bad faith 
with the world. And Mr 
Gorbachov,- for all his smiling 
bonhomie, will be unable to 
erase that image. 


NUCLEAR PARANOIA II 


The worldwide nuclear power 
industry has always dreaded a 
catastrophic power station ac- 
cident of the kind that has now 
taken place. For the realisation 
of that nightmare is bound to 
provide ammunition for anti- 
nuclear groups to play on 
latent public fears. Indeed, the 
• chairman of Britain's Cam- 
paign for Nuclear Disarma- 
ment was quick to fire off a 
round yesterday, charging that 
such a disaster could happen at 
any nuclear power station in 
Britain. 

Such reactions are hardly 
rational. In the absence of a 
full explanation of the causes 
of the Chernobyl accident, to 
state that it could be repealed 
in Britain's first and second 
generation gas-cooled reactors, 
which are of a fundamentally 
- different design, is just to say 
that nuclear fission can pro- 
duce catastrophic effects. Thai 
is common ground even to the 
most Panglossian advocates of 
nuclear eneigy and is the 
essential starling point for all 
nuclear engineering. 

The development of that 
sophisticated industry over the 
past 25 years , which still 
continues apace, is in large 
measure a question of making 


the risk ever more remote by a 
combination of design, en- 
gineering standards and vigi- 
lance. In democratic Western 
Europe, the United States and 
Japan, it is also a matter of 
building in greater safety mar- 
gins, more layers of failsafe 
mechanisms and greater pro- 
visions for containing the ef- 
fects of accidents than . 
scientists and accountants 
might professionally think 
necessary, in order to satisfy 
public fears. 

Soviet secrecy has cut its 
nuclear industry off from the 
exchange of information that 
contributes so greatly to refin- 
ing design and practice. It is 
not for instance, a member of 
the Institute of Nuclear Power 
Operations, the international 
club that maintains databanks . 
on all incidents in nuclear 
power stations. It acts as a. 
clearing house for even the 
smallest mishaps and in- 
vestigation reports to be 
circularised day by day around 
the globe. 

A disaster on such a scale to 
any nuclear plant anywhere is 
nonethless likely to have a 
substantial impact on the 
world nuclear power industry. 

It is already suffering from a - 


dearth of orders due to the 
economic recession as much as 
the psychological fallout of the 
near disaster at Three Mile 
Island. Problems of nuclear 
waste have aroused public 
fears about nuclear power in 
Britain and Germany even 
though power station opera- 
tion has proved trouble-free 
for many years. 

The nuclear power debate in 
Britain was revived by the 
plan to switch from gas-cooled 
to pressurized water reactors. 
The long-delayed Sizewell in- 
quiry report and decision must 
already have been affected by 
the changing economics 
brought by the collapse of oil 
prices, however temporary . 
The Soviet accident is at least 
likely to cause a further delay 
At present, it does not suggest 
any direct; technical effect on 
the choice of reactor. 

It is still vital that the causes 
of the Chernobyl accident and 
their possible implications for 
nuclear design and safety stan- 
dards are learnt as soon as 
possible. The Soviet Union 
should open its own inquiries 
into the causes and medical 
effects rapidly and folly via the 
International Atomic Energy 1 
Authority. 


THE NEWEST NEW REALIST 


Mr Bill Jordan's accession to 
the presidency' of the Amal- 
gamated Union of Engineering 
Workers looks like further 
evidence that the Thatcher 
years are seeing a deep and 
probably irreversible shift in 
attitudes towards economic 
enterprise. Yesterday the very 
stuff of his rhetoric was the 
marriage of employment and 
business success. 

From his witness of the 
rapid industrial decline of the 
West Midlands, Mr Jordan has 
emerged sounding not unlike a 
Chamberlainite Tory, greedy 
for a renewal of private wealth 
creation — on condition it 
brings jobs and a fair share for 
his members. He is. it seems, a 
man for the season, a co- 
adjutor of Mr Eric Hammond 
in the "new realism' . and so 
his election is welcome. 

But how stable is this new 
realism? At limes it looks 
distinctly like the old parlour 
game of “let's say reassuring 
things about unions to secure a 
Labour election victory' . Or 
perhaps it is merely a descrip- 
tion of the effects of new 
internal union structures 
rather than 2 harbinger of any 
change in their function. 

Mr Jordan's election is prob- 


ably a better reflection of the 
views and aspirations of the 
AUEW membership than pre- 
vious contests. Meanwhile, 
out in the real world, the 
AUEW is embroiled in a 
unnecessary dispute at British 
Aerospace where (despite Mr 
Jordan) claims for hours and 
money seem to be more highly 
valued than maximizing 
employment for non-mem- 
. bers. 


The feet of modem union 
life is that organizing the “new 
working class" - dispersed in 
smaller firms and using new 
technologies — is problematic. 
Two of Mr Jordan’s rhetorical 
strophes are small business 
and individualism in the 
workplace. He proposes, most 
suggestively, “surgeries" for 
small employers on their la- 
bour problems. He emphasizes 
employee rights. 


Where the new realism is 
especially ambiguous is over 
the political affiliation of trade 
unionism. On behalf of the 
Labour Party’s own brand of 
new realism Mr Hanersley has 
been making speeches. At the 
shop workers’ union con- 
ference on Monday he set out 
elements of the social contract 
that Labour would like to 


make with the trade unons — 
though, understandably, not in 
those exact terms. The ele- 
ments were moderation on 
wages in return for some 
approximation to full employ- 
ment. 

It might be said that even to 
get the unions to talk about 
wage restraint is a remarkable 
achievement, though whether 
it stems from Thatcher-in- 
duced appreciation of eco- 
nomic reality or love of Mr 
Kinnock is arguable. What is 
remarkable is how far there is 
underlying agreement on 
objectives between Mr Nigel 
Lawson, Mr Jordan and even 
Mr Ron Todd of the transport 
workers. 

All are saying, in one way or 
another, that there is a trade- 
off between remuneration and 
employment. Mr Lawson 
-wants wages restrained in or- 
der that lower unit labour costs 
should enhance competitive- 
ness and so stimulate employ- 
ment Mr Kinnock wants pay 
restraint so ■ that his pro- 
gramme of reflation and bor- 
rowed expenditure would not 
fuel inflation. Which is the 
pathway to more and more 
permanent employment ? For 
all his new realism Mr Jordan 
seems to prefer the latter.

Recollections of 
the Abdication 


Cecil Wal 
dissociates responsible politicians 
in Northern Ireland from the 
mindless — and murderous — 
attacks made, in the name of 
“loyalism" and “Unionism", on 
the men and women of the RUC 
and their families. Alas, he 
misconceives the role of both the 
police and the Police Federation. 

It is the not the business of the 
RUC to be for or against the 
Anglo-Irish accord. Ii is their duty 
to uphold the Queen's peace in 
their pan of the United Kingdom 
and to enforce the law as made by 
Parliament, to the best of their 
ability. Nor is it the task of the 
Police Federation to campaign for 
an alternative to the agreement. 
The federation's job is to represent 
its members in all matters that 
affect the welfare and- efficiency of 
the force. 

These are no -pedantic legal 
distinctions. The most welcome 
development in the RUC over the 
past 20 years has been its evolu- 
tion from a heavily sectarian 
body, under local Stormont con- 
trol. to an independent Britisb- 
style police force upholding the 
law without regard to religion or 
politics. It would be a retrograde, 
and dangerous, step for its serving 
officers or their representative 
body to get involved in the politics 
of the Anglo-Irish Agreement. 

That said, the agreement has 
created a number of agonising 
dilemmas, as well as practical 
_ problems, for the RUC. 
ie force is being asked to do too 
much. It cannot simultaneously be 
successful in: 


2. Fighting a counter-insurgency 


war against the Provisional 

3. Policing massive civil unresL 
much of which. 1 accept, reflects 
the disaffection of the majority, 
and 

4. Maintaining an armed guard 
along an open international fron- 
tier. 

Something has to give. In my 
view, the RUC should be relieved 
of some of its duties on the border. 
Too many of its men are bottled 
up in near fortresses: they should 
be released to concentrate on 
public order duties and the protec- 
tion of their homes and families. 

1 adhere to the view- that it is 
impossible in a free society for a 
civilian police force to police for 
long against the majority. Mr Cecil 
Walker might recall that I told 
ministers exactly that when Par- 
liament debated the Anglo-Irish 
Agreement- Bui the majority has 
duties to its police force, as well as 
vice-versa. 

Every elected member ought 
now to be using his best offices to

The Muslim view 


From Mr Kenneth Gill 
Sir, 1 read Mr M ugh ram Al- 
Ghamdi’s letter (April 24) with a 
mixture of sympathy and irrita- 
tion. Sympathy because I share a 
concern about the indiscriminate 
nature of bombing. Irritation be- 
cause of Mr Mughram Al- 
Ghamdi's presumption that he 
speaks for the two million-strong 
Muslim community in this coun- 
try and accuses her Majesty's 
Government of "an ingrained 
hostility to Arab Muslims . Well, 
well; I always thought that the 
problem with our Government 
and country was a too strong pro- 
Arab position. 

As a tolerant (I hope) member 
of the “host community" 
surrounding the undeniably im- 
portant Muslim minority 1 must 
say that I am aware of far less 
hostility to the Muslim minority 
than to the Irish or Jewish or 
Catholic or other minority, per- 
haps apart from the National 
FronL 

However, as an Englishman 
mercifully unaligned to any re- 
ligion, I would be interested to 
hear the views of other Muslim 


British rituens on the subject of 
the fate, for example, of the writer 
and publisher of such a letter 
expressing a pro- Anglo-American 
stance in a Muslim newspaper in, 
say. Iran. Or why Mr Mughram 
Al-Ghamdi makes no mention of 
the horror that must surely be felt 
by many Muslim British citizens 
about the atrocities perpetrated by 
illiberal regimes ruled by such as 
Khomeini or the slaughter of 
Afghanistan Muslims by the Sovi- 
ets and so on. Or the indiscrimi- 
nate placing of bombs in public 
places by cowards, Muslim or 
otherwise. 


As I have indicated I hold little 
sympathy for bombing of any 
kind. But I have sympathy for an 
American President frustrated by 
attacks on US citizens by Muslims 
who live and/or travel freely in 
countries in whom I detect no 
"ingrained hostility". And I have 
sympathy for a British Prime 
Minister who, against all purely 
party interests, holds out a helping 
hand to an ally. 

Yours sincerely.

ILEA results 


From Mr William H. Stubbs 


Sir, On the front page of The 
Times for April 21 you report the 
findings of*a survey which claims 
that the examination results for 
secondary school pupils in inner 
London are substantially below 
the national average. In the run-up 
to an election it is to be expected 
that there will be differing claims 
from political parties about the 
status quo. This makes it particu- 
larly important that readers 
should understand any distinction 
between political statements and 
basic facts. I should, therefore, 
wish to point out: 

Firstly, the National Council for 
Educational Standards which has 
published the survey is not a 
neutral research group. It is a 
pressure group with a commit- 
ment to a particular view. 


Alternative prayers 

From Mr J. W. Howell 
Sir. “Times past” might have been 
a more apt title to the letter from 
Mrs Eve Hitchens (April 24). 

The Church (including the 
Church of England) is probably 
one of the few institutions which 
should exist for the benefit of its 
non-members. As Christians, our 
duty is clearly to evangelise. I 
wonder how Mrs Hitchens thinks 
that the Church can succeed in 
doing this in a language and style 
written four hundred years ago? 


Secondly, a survey of examination 
results carried out by government 
statisticians was published by the 
Department of Education and 
Science in I9S4. It is the most 
developed analysis of national 
examination statistics so far. This 
concludes that pupils in the ILEA, 
rather than under-achieving, 
achieve greater success in 
examinations than expected when 
account is taken of their home 
background. The results also show 
that the ILEA ranks 45th out of 
the 96 English local education 
authorities. 


No doubt at Sunday worship 
she and others who believe that 
The Book of Common Prayer and 
the King James Bible are meaning- 
ful and relevant to today's Church 
are “bewailing [their] manifold 
sins and wickedness" probably 
because it is "meet and right and 
[their] bounden duty". 

Apart from the feet that by using 
such words we are not being 
wholly honest with God — do we 
really bewail our sins? — is such 
language likely or conducive to 
bring non-Christians to Church, 


e.g., those “ordinary, backsliding 


The standards of pupils from 
schools in the ILEA have im- 
proved, both with respect to their 
predecessors and their peers else- 
where in ihe country'.

English men and women 
whom Mrs Hitchens speaks? 

Thank God indeed that at least 
the Church of England is coming 
alive to the needs of the twentieth, 
century by attempting to commu- 
nicate in this century’s language. 
At least then with God's help wc 
may be able to reach those in inner 
cities, outer villages and all peo- 
ples of this nation.

Heritage fire risk 


From the Director of the World 
Fire Statistics Centre 
Sir. The British Automatic Sprin- 
kler .Association (April 28) can 
rightly take credit for their long- 


lected by the fire brigades, lose 
much of their value due to lack of 
figures for the cost of the fire

buildings. Is one lesson of the 
Hampton Court fire that more 
British buildings should be pro- 
tected by automatic sprinkler 
systems? 

The answer is probably “Yes", 
but sprinklers are expensive to 
install and if Britain is going to 
spend millions of pounds on 
teller fire protection, taxpayers 
have a right io insist that, the 
money is spent cost-effectively. 

CoK-effectivencss can only be 
measured by statistics and the 
truth is that British fire statistics 
(like those of other countries) are 
hopelessly inadequate. For exam-

At last week's centre seminar in

offire(l per cent of gross domestic 
product) was equivalent to the 
amount of the EEC budget or to 
the cost of barriers to European 
trade. If this cost is to be 
materially reduced better fire 
statistics are essential and a recent 
EEC working party report rightly 
stresses the need for fire-equip- 
ment manufacturers to take a 
leading role in evolving a new 
network of national fire statistics.

From Dr J.A. H. Wylie 
Sir. Your obituarist of the Duch- 
ess of Windsor (April 25) is not 
wholly correct in stating that the 
"American and continental press 
was full" of the scandal surround- 
ing the Prince of Wales and Mrs 
Simpson. 

At the time that I arrived as an 
undergraduate in Germany, in 
July 1936. and as a mark of 
courtesy to Britain which was 
much appreciated in Downing 
Street and Whitehall, DrGoebbels 
had decreed that the story should 
not appear in the German press; 
not even in the Frankfurter 
Zcitung which, at that lime, 
enjoyed some degree of indepen- 
dence. That decree held good until 
the formal announcement of the 
Abdication. 

I have the honour to be. Sir. your 
obedient servant,

From the Editor of the Telegraph 
Si Argus. Bradford 
Sir. The article by your Religious 
Affairs Correspondent (April 25) 
states that it was the Yorkshire 
Post which gave wider circulation 
to the speech given by the Bishop 
of Bradford at his diocesan con- 
ference which precipitated the 
Abdication of King Edward VIII. 

The text of the sensational 
speech was. in fact, disclosed to 
the world on December 1. 1936. 
by Charles Leach, a reporter 
employed by the Bradford Tele- 
graph & Argus which had earlier 
that day reported the news under 
the seven-column headline. “The 
Bishop of Bradford's Reference to 
the King's ‘Need for Grace'". 

The story was telephoned to the 
Press Association, who wired it to 
their subscribing newspapers after 


first sending a note alerting editors 
jitmific 


to the significance of the report. 

A verbatim report of the 
bishop's speech and a carefully 
prepared summary was later tele- 
phoned to PA. 

The role of the Yorkshire Post 
and its Editor, Mr Arthur Mann, 
was in feet the circulation of an 
editorial comment about the affair 
which was published in some 
quarters the following day.

Cost of frigate 

From Mr D. Laurent Giles 
Sir. It is high time someone in 
Government sorted out the cost of 
a frigate. 

On January 29, 1985. you 
reported Mr Heseltine making a 
statement in Parliament, as De- 
fence Secretary, that the price of a 
Type 22 frigate was "about £140 
million". At the time of the 


launching of the Type 22 frigates 
' ?ffie 


Coventry and Sheffield earlier this 
month their price was widely 
reported, in your columns and on 
the BBC as “1 00 million". 

Last night, in its MOD pro- 
gramme-made with the fullest co- 
operation of the Ministry of 
Defence - the BBC gave the cost of 
a Type 22 as £ 1 70 million. 

Either the British public is 
entitled to an accurate figure for 


such a huge item of public 
If it is, 


expenditure, or it is not If it is 
could an accurate and consistent 
figure be quoted?] f not would the

an unequivocal statement to that

EGYPT. 

/Prom An Occasional 
Correspondent.) 

ALEXANDRIA, April 14. 
Nobody here knows how Egypt 
will be affected by the war. It is a 
practical, not a theoretical ques- 
tion, and yet no answer is ready . . - 
To turn to more pacific subjects. 
In country of many Creeds we 
are to have two Easters, and the 
the Greek and Coptic 
Easter, is always a very noisy 
business. The churches are crowd- 


ed, and at midnight squibs and 
crackers are lighted an 


and guns fired, 
ail with the object of “shooting 
Judas", whose death is made 
doubly sure by his being also burnt 
in effigy in half a dozen different 

quarters of the town. The rejoicing 
lasts over Monday, when every- 
body turns out to greet the coming 
summer. This day, the Coptic 
Easter Monday, is also the occa- 
sion of a great Arab festival which 
is only known in Egypt, and was 
adopted from the Coptic practice 
the conquerors found when they 
brought the religion of Mahomet 
into the country. Tha Arabs call it 
the Shemm-en-Neseem— the 
smelling of the zephyr. They and 
their families go out to their 
country, some with tents, and pass 
the day in the fields, on the banks 
of the canals, under the shade of 
trees, eating fruit and sweetmeats 
and making and telling stories. 
They dress in their brightest 
colours and group themselves into 
brilliant masses. Some take boats 
and paddle about the harbour, 
others float about in canal barges. 
They take nothing stronger than 
water, and yet they are as merry as 
children. Their talk and laughter 
are never ending, and the smallest 
joke calk forth the broadest grin. 
“It is so pleasant,” said a great 
traveller to me to-day, "to come 
from gloomy England to so happy 
and smiling a people. "Their food is 
of the simplest kind. Big flat loaves 
of bread, cakes, sweetmeats, lettuce 
and onions, with great draughts of 
Nile water, make their dinner. No 
matter what the weather is— even a 
hot desert wind may be blowing, 
they still go out to “smell the 
zephyr", and only return at the 
setting sun. From this date the 
natives date the period of 
Khamseen (60), when the hot 


winds are supposed to blow off and 
on for 50 days. As a matter of feet 
we had these Khamseen winds a 
month ago. but the Arab only calls 
it a Khamseen if it occurs within 
this period. The origin they give to 
these words is very quaint. When 
Cain murdered his brother Abel, he 
wandered into the desert with the 
body on his back, not knowing how 
to dispose of it. So he wandered for 
50 days, and the hot wind blew 
upon him all the rime and filled 
him with thirst and fever. At last 
he saw two birds fight in the air 
and one kill the other. Then Cain 
said to himself, "1 will do with my 
brothers body as the living bird 
does with the dead." The living 
bird scratched a hole in the sand 
and buried his fellow. So Cain 
buried his brother in (he desert, 
and straightaway a cool breeze 
came and his fever passed. But 
every spring the hot wind has come 
back to blow for 50 days . . . 

The statement in the English 
newspapers and the question in the 
House of Commons concerning the 
sale of 300 slaves in Cairo, has 
revived in Egypt the memory of the 
late Moufettish. His were the 
slaves in question. His hareem was 
noted as the largest in the country 
and the disposal of it was a matter 
uf some difficulty when the great 
man fell. Even if Egypt were 
seriously disposed to abandon the 
system of domestic slavery, there is 
no organization for the protection 
of slaves who are suddenly released, 
and freedom in such a case would 
have been a questionable benefit. 
Many were placed in other 
hareems. but a large number were 
sold, not in the sensational manner 
which has been stated, but by 
private contract Indeed, there is 
no such thing as a public slave 
market in Cairo, although, no 
doubt, slaves are bought and sold 
there 

At present domestic slavery is a 
necessity to the hareem system. A 
number of slaves are a sign of 
wealth and position. Every wife of 
a certain rank is entitled to have 
slave attendants. It would be 
impossible to maintain the seclu- 
sion of the hareem without slaves. 
Female domestic servants are un- 
known, and if the wives had to do 
their own work they could no 
longer maintain their strict isola- 
tion. To change such a system 
must be a matter of time . . . 


Cyprus settlement 

From Mr D. Lakatamitis 
Sir. Your leader. “Time to settle 
Cyprus" (April 23) includes, at 
several instances, a vague and 
slightly misleading interpretation 
of the reasons why President 
Kyprianou has not given the 
thumbs up to the latest UN 
initiative. 

What the article calls unreason- 
able is the President's refusal to 
dissolve the present, internation- 
ally recognized government of 
Cyprus for a so called 
“transitional" one, while major 
issues like a) the withdrawal of the 
Turkish occupation troops* b) the 
withdrawal of ihe imported Turk- 
ish settlers, c) the question of 
international guarantees (the .UN 
plan names Turkey as a guarantor 
of independence!) and d) the issue 
of basic human freedoms, i.e.. to 
move, live or work in any part of 
the island, remain unresolved, 
even in principle, and are left to 
“working groups" to son out at 

leisure. 

Whilst 1 believe there should 


be major concessions from both 
sides, so that trust and a lasting 
solution be established. I find it 
hard to imagine that the UN 
Secretary General believes that his 
latest proposals are in any signifi- 
cant way different to the ones that 
were rejected 15 months ago in 
New York. 

Yours faithfully.

OBITUARY 

PROF DENIS ARNOLD 
Authority on Renaissance 
and Baroque music 


Professor Denis Arnold, 
CBE, FBA, who died suddenly 
in Budapest on April 28, aged 
59, while attending a meeting 
of the International Musico- 
logical Society, was the Heath- 
er Professor of Music in the 
University of Oxford and the 
author of a number of books, 
most notably on Venetian 
music. 

He also edited the New 
Oxford Companion lo Afusic. 

Born in Sheffield on De- 
cember 1 5, 1 926, he studied at 
the university there and was 
awarded an MA fora disserta- 
tion on Weelkes before taking 
up a post as lecturer in music 
at Queen's University, Belfast, 
in 1951. 

In 1964 he moved to Hull, 
going from there to Notting- 
ham University in 1969 as 
Professor of Music. Here he 
did mud) to strengthen and 
develop the - music depart- 
ment, also forming a graduate 
course on Baroque music. 

Arnold became Heather 
Professor of Music at Oxford 
in 1975, where his energies 
found an outlet not only in 
lecturing, teaching and writing 
but also in conducting. 

His many official posts and 
appointments included presi- 
dency of the Royal Musical 
Association from 1979 to 
1983, when he was appointed 
CBE He was elected a Fellow 
of the. British Academy in 
1976. 

As a writer, Arnold's princi- 
pal work was in the field of 


Venetian music, especially 
Monteverdi: he spent part of 
every year at his house near 
Venice, pursuing his 
researches. * . 

His books include an admi- 
rable study of Monteverdi 
(1963) and two editions of a ( 
Monteverdi Companion (1969 
and 1985). as wett J* a 
Beethoven Companion (1971). 
But other composers who 
were the subjects of mono- 
graphs included Marenzio 
(1965), Giovanni Gabrieli 
(1974) and Gesuaklo (1984). 

He wrote a large number of 
articles on these and kindred 
composers, and made practi- 
cal editions of Gabrieli He 
also edited The New Oxford 
Companion to Afusic which 
appeared in 1983. . . 

Arnold was a gifted pianist 
and harpsichordist, and a 
" lecturer of infectious enthusi- 
asm. His wide knowledge of w 
Baroque music was manifest- 
ed in his articles and in his 
teaching; where his livery and 
forcefully held" views were 
conveyed with a cheerful de- 
light in the subject. 

His extrovert and amiable 
. nature, and relish of the 
outrageous, concealed much 
dedicated professionalism, 
not least in the administration 
of a university music depart- 
ment in difficult times. 

In all his work and in his 
generous hospitality he was 
given the most loyal support 
by his wife, Elsie, herself a 
trained musicologist with t 
whom he often collaborated. 


MR GONTRAN GOULDEN 


Mr Gontran Goulden, OBE, 
TD, FRIBA, who died on 
April 19. at the age of 72, was 
director of the Building Cen- 
tre. London, from 1962 to 
1974, a time when it was 
broadening its role from that 
of an exhibition of materials 
and equipment to an informa- 
tion and educational body 
concerned with all aspects of 
building. 

It became a model for 
similar institutions overseas, 
and an International Union of 
Building Centres was formed 
in 1965 with Goulden as its 
president. 

Gontran Iceton Goulden 
was born on April 5, 1912, 
educated at St Edmund's 
School, Canterbury, and stud- 
ied architecture at London 
University before joining a 
practice. 

A dedicated member of the - 
Terri to riaJ Army, he was com- • 
missioned into theHoyai Ar- ■ 
lillery as eady as- 1931. 

During the Second World 
War he served in Ceylon, 
India and the Far East, hold- 
ing senior staff appointments. 
He was twice mentioned in 
despatches. 

After returning to civilian 
life, first teaching at toe Agri- 
cultural Association school 
and then as chief technical 
officer at toe Budding Centre, 
he continued his association 
with the T A. 

He was deputy commander 
33 AA Brigade. 1954-58; bon 
Colonel 452 HAA Regiment, 
RA, 1960-61; and hon Colonel 
254 Field Regiment. RA, 
1964-65. 


When toe International 
Union of Architects held its 
biennial conference in Britain 
in 1961, Goulden was ap- 
pointed director. 

He controlled its meetings 
and auxiliary functions with 
exemplary efficiency and tact, 
an achievement facilitated by 
his extrovert personality and 
bonhomie. 

He contributed in many 
other ways to toe administra- 
tive ride of toe architectural 
profession: as secretary of toe 
Modern Architectural Re- 
search Group,- 1950-53; as a ^ 
member of council of toe 
Architectural Association 
(president 1956-7); as a mem- 
ber of toe RIBA council and of 
toe Architects Registration 
Council; and as treasurer from 
1967-75 of toe International 
Union of Architects. 

■ He also served on several 
government committees con- 
cerned with the building in- 
dustry. He was appointed 
OBE in 1963. 

In retirement Goulden 
found a second career as a 
traveller and writer. He had a 
fine eye for paintings' and 
buildings and reviewed books 
on travel and architecture for 
The Times with flair and . 
knowledge. rC 

He was a big, fine looking 
man wito.a twinkle in his eye, 
who grew more handsome as 
he grew older. 

He and his wife. Nan eye, 
made a splendid pair, cultivat- 
ed and urbane intellectuals 
who retained a childlike sense 
of fun and a lust for fife. 


DR PATRICK GROVE 


Dr Patrick Grove, CBE, toe 
founder and for 40 years the 
driving force behind toe orga- 
nization that has grown to 
become Amersham Interna- 
tional a company with a £] 00 
million turnover, has died, 
aged 71. 

His was toe success story of 
high technology industry. In 
1940 be took over an outhouse 
near Amersham, in Bucking- 
hamshire, to make luminous 
paint for toe war effort. 

. The business thrived and 
went on to manufacture radio- 
active research tools for indus- 
trial and medical uses. 

Grove’s first practical ac- 
quaintance with radioactivity 
was as an ’assistant in the 
laboratory of the Radium 
Institute in London. 

At toe outbreak of war he 
spent a short time at the Royal 
Navy Torpedo Establishment 
al Greenock in Scotland be- 
fore starting toe laboratory in 


Amersham to refine radium 
for luminous paint. 

After toe war. Grove steered 
bis group on a course ol 
vigorous and sustained expan- 
sion, broadening its work into 
the new field of radio- iso- 
topes. 

It was named the Radio- 
chemical Centre in 1946 and 
for eight years was part of the 
newly formed United King- 
dom Atomic Energy 
Authority. 

In 1971 it became a private 
limited company with Grove 
as its managing director. 

He had already turned his 
attention abroad; and when he 
retired in 1979 85 per cent ol 
the company's business was 
from overseas. 

Grove, who was created a 
CBE in 1969, took a keen 
interest in local affairs; he was 
chairman of the bench and 
governor of several schools 
and colleges. 

He leaves a widow, JflL 


DR MARI NYSWANDER 


Dr Mari Nyswander, an 
American psychiatrist who 
helped develop methadone 
treatment for heroin addic- 
tion, died on April 20, aged 67. 

Her introduction to the 
problems of drug addiction 
came during the Second 
World War when she was a 
lieutenant in the US Public 
Health Service. Later she 
trained in psychiatry and 
psychoanalysts. 

It was during the 1960s, 
with her husband, Vincent 
Dole, that' she developed 
methadone maintenance for 
toe management of heroin 
addiction. An estimated 
150,000 heroin users have 
since entered methadone 
maintenance programmes. 

She was associated with toe 
Beth Israel Medical Centre, 
where she and her husband 
instituted trials of methadone 
in 1964. 

Her work during the 1 960s, 
in a store-front dime set up by 


the Narcotics Office of 
East Harlem- Protestant 
ish. was profiled in The i 
Yorker magazine in 1965. 
later published as a bool 
Doctor Among the Addicts 
Nat Hen toff 

In The Drug Addict t

the view that addiction sh< 
be approached as a med

Television 

So now 
the dust 
can lie 

Mote, massacres and streams 
of pitiful refugees filled the 
screen at regular intervals over 
the last three days of Lord 
Mounsbatten: The Last Vice- 
roy* 

rise series had the vast 
disadvantage of coming to the 
screen at the rear of a proces- 
sion of fabulous epics about 
the twilight of the British Raj. 
It was hard not to notice that it 
lacked the dignity of Gandhi, 
the scope of A Passage to 
India, the gotsy vulgarity of 
The Far Pavilions or the 
humanity of A Jewel in the 
Crowa. lt also lacked a viable 
dramatic structure, so that 
pBes of bloodstained corpses 
and rioting mobs were called 
for so often that the sights 
became wearisome. 

The first problem was histo- 
ry, in which events seldom 
arranged themselves into the 
kind of heart-stopping, s 
penseful progression that 
keeps an audience viewing for 
horns on end. The second 
problem was evidently senti- 
ment; the Mountbattens are to 
this- day dearly-loved figures 
but it was hard to project the 
qualities which aroused public 
affection. 

The script often gave the 
impression of having been 
. assembled from nndig gsted 
fragments of military mem- 
oirs, and the dialogue flowed 
most freely when Aochmleck 
waved a pointer over a map. 
Any emotional dimension the 
drama could have achieved 
was nullified by this dipped, 
factually-orientated mode. 
The series was unable to 
suggest die personalities of 
Mountbatten and his wife 
Edwina in any meaningful 
way. Nicol Williamson in the 
tide role had an appropriate 
Cruel Sea accent and an upper 
lip so stiff it was unable to 
animate the wooden dialogue. 
The most successful charac- 
terization was lan Rich- 
ardson's Nehru, which was 
achieved at the cost of giving 
an imposing newsreel figure 
rather too modi plasticity. 

The awkward question of 
the relationship between Lady 
Mountbatten and die Indian 
leader was treated with hesi- 
tancy ami embarrassment 
rather than deHcacyrinid me 
had the impression that the 
scriptwriter would have -been 
happier to dock this issue 
entirely. 

In ail, this sbe-hour mini- 
series was not equal to its 
subject ami has effectively 
ensured that the dost of this 
era will not be disturbed again 
for some years — when, per- 
haps, tbe lengthening perspec- 
tive of history wffl render it 
earner to portray with success.

final scene with its mixture of 
pathos, courage and doom. 
This is a performance which 
one can expea to grow once he 
has tbe measure of the role. 

Bintley has given tbe ballet, 
contrary to Hans Andersen’s 
story, a tragic ending. Gerda's 
devotion in following Kay to 
the Snow Queen's palace still 
serves to melt his heart, but it 
is too late: his fate is already 
sealed. That makes, in the 
theatre, a more definite cli- 
max. It also reflects the rela- 
tive strength of the two main 
women's roles. 

Leanne Benjamin gives 
Gerda a quiet tenacity, but she 
cannot find much more in the 
part, while the title role offers 
an opportunity for a sense of 
mystery and command. Sam- 
ira Saidi. in much tbe biggest 
role she has yet played, justi- 
fies Bintley’s choice of her not 
only by her striking beauty but 


by finding an inward stillness 
that conveys the character's 
confidence in her supernatural 
power. She carries off her long 
solos and the difficult duet at 
the end with confident skilL 

The Snow Queen is a long 
ballet, but it does not feel 
unduly protracted. How well 
its dance interest will sustain 
repeated viewings and varied 
interpretations remains to be 
seen. What is clear at first 
sight is that it offers an 
evening of exciting entertain- 
ment, not least by such tricks 
as the shattered mirror, the 
sudden apparition of a giant 
carnival figure and the use at 
one point of a tiny puppet. 

It suits ibis company well, 
too, offering minor roles that 
are done with great zest, by 
Anita Lan da and Desmond 
Kelly as Gerda's parents and 
by several players in the 
carnival scene. There is also a 
chance for the women in the 
final episode to redress the 
balance of power, which they 
lake with joyous enthusiasm.'

Opera 

Tosca 

Co vent Garden 


The shadows of Zeffirelli’s Tosco, with 
its flickering candle-light and glowering 
dawn, can all too easily, 22 years on, 
threaten to swallow up any cast not 
entirely equal to its epic might. Gallas, 
Cioni and Gobbi have been a hard act to 
follow. But it could just be that the Royal 
Opera, for a precious two more perfor- 
mances (tomorrow and Monday) have 
hit on a team who will provide in their 
own way fruit for future reminiscent 
comparison. 

That team is Ingvar Wixell, returning 
as Scarpia, Giuseppe Giacomini in his 
first Covent Garden Cavaradossi and, 
above all, the Soviet soprano Na talia 
Troitskaya, making her British debut 
They take the opera and its production — 
both unashamed archetypes — entirely 
on its own terms, and in doing so are de- 
lighting an eager, cross-legged auditori- 
um audience in this week of the annual 
Covent Garden Proms. 



Superb control and timing: Natalia 
Troitskaya with Ginseppe Giacomini 

Troitskaya sets the scale, creating a 
silhouette of melodrama whose every 
shifting profile is as hypnotic to watch as 
a silent movie. One is left, as if after star- 
ing into a bright light for too long, with a 
sequence of indelibly ingrained images: 
the fist quivering at the canvas in Act I as 
the other hand withdraws, trembling,, 
from Scarpia; the outstretched candle- 
bearing arms; the lurching first step to 
the parapet The voice, a pulsating. 


chest-orientated Eastern European so- 
prano. fleshes out this Tosca’s pride, 
volatility and dignity with suberb control 
and timing. 

That timing comes into its own in the 
central act Wixell, who has been 
preparing with wonderfully understated 
insinuation a crescendo of presence up to 
this point creates with Troitskaya a 
physical tension greater than any 1 have 
sensed here before. It is to Giaco in ini's 
credit that despite a short patch of vocal 
as well as physical torment at this point 
he was able to equal it in Act III. 
Elegance and eloquence reinforce each 
other in this dense, totally un histrionic 
tenor just as dignity tempers ardour in 
this Cavaradossi. 

With newly invigorated staging by 
Wilfred Judd, the evening, under a 
different baton, could just have turned 
over from good to great Michael 
Schonwandt creates a welcome trans- 
parency of text and texture, but offers 
conducting of the short-term, sectional 
school observing myopically for too 
much of the time and tending to breathe 
alongside rather than with and through 
bis singers and his composer.

It was only recently that John 
Cox realized the significance 
of April 30, the date his new 
production of The Marriage of 
Figaro for Scottish Opera 
opens at the Theatre Royal 
Glasgow. “I was sitting in bed 
reading Hildesheimer’s Mo- 
zart biography. It was late, but 
I had an inch of whisky left in 
my glass so I started flicking 
through the chronology of 
works. Then I saw it ‘1786, 
May 1. premiere of Le nozze 
di Figaro \ I nearly leapt out of 
bed. To have come that dose 
to the bicentenary by accident 
I know it’s going to mean a lot 
to the cast, and I'm sure the 
first-night party will take us 
well into May 1.” 

It seems improbable that a 
director with Cox’s long- 
standing Glyndebourne con- 
nections should be staging his 
first Figaro at the age of SO. 
But, as he points out, his 
Glyndebourne '’apprentice- 
ship*' coincided with Carl 
Ebert's celebrated production, 
which Cox assisted on. “It was 
such a wonderful production 
that 1 think the general feeling 
at Glyndebourne was that 
Figaro should not be attempt- 
ed again until something com- 
parable could be achieved. It 
was out of the repertoire for 
ages." Then, during Cox's 
time as Glyndebourne's direc- 
tor of productions (1971-82), 
it was decided that Peter Hall 
should do the complete cycle 
of Da Pome/Mozart operas. 

Cox is not unhappy, howev- 
er, about coming to Figaro 
comparatively late. "It is one 
of tbe great masterpiece 5 of 
the human spirit, and as such 
must be daunting. It was part 
of my five-year plan for 
Scottish Opera when I came 
here as general administrator 
in 1982, and 1 feel 1 am more 
ready for it now than I was on 
arrival." 

Most theatre directors look 
for a “way m" to a work, but 
Cox starts by looking for the 
way out: he thinks the ending 
through first. “I did a se- 
quence of operas with prob- 
lem endings. Ariadne auf 
Naxos being the most notori- 
ous. You could re-title it 
‘Waiting for Bacchus', but 
what the tell do you do when 
be gets there? So it became a 
babit for me to start with the 
last scene, to make the ending 
mean' what the rest is leading 



up to. ... 

“*In Ftgarolbe ending is also 
the most sublime passage: the 
forgiveness, and the following

ensemble. You scarcely dare 
breathe while it is being sung. I 
asked myself why is this 
taking place in a garden?" 

The question has led Cox to 
explore the eighteenth cen- 
tury's fascination with gar- 
dens, both in the literal 
horticultural sense and as apt 
symbols for the Enlighten- 
ment concern with the balance 
between Reason and Nature. 
“It soon became clear to me 
that this opera's amazing tan- 
gle can only be resolved in a 
garden. All the man-made 
artifices, the complications, 

the carefully-structured inti- 
macies and intrigues: in the 
garden it suddenly all comes 
out clearly. So what we try to 
project is the idea that when 
we are in emotional trouble 
we should consult nature." 

But what about the Count's 
extra-marital ambitions; sure- 
ly he is already following his 
own "nature"? Cox elabo- 
rates: “The point about the 
Count is that be is following 
nature in the wrong way; be is 
playing the beast Figaro is a 
statement of faith in the 
perfectability of human rela- 
tionships. You can have won- 
derful harmony, but only if 
you get the balance right, if 
you don’t distort ft by greed or 
lust." 

The designer. John Byrne, is 
a painter, playwright and di- 1 
rector in his own right “He's 
an astonishing polymath", 
says Cox, “and the most 
arresting things about his stage 
designs are his costumes. They 
are not just costume designs, 
they are character-studies 
down to the smallest detail.” 
Both director and designer are 
determined that all the opera’s 
concealments and disguises 
should be convincing. “I have 
seen too many Figaros lately 
where the characters stand 
there in broad moonlight, and 
the only reason they don’t see 
each other is because they 
don’t want to wreck the 
production. Thai is design and 
direction cop-out” 

Being the com party's artistic 
director, says Cox, usually 
ensures he gets the singers he 


wants. “I was keen to have 
isobel Buchanan doing her 
first Susanna, however magi- 
cal her Countess may have 
been. Curiously, a similar 
situation arose with Jonathan 
Summers. I know Govern 
Garden cast him as Figaro, but 
when 1 saw him doing Onegin 
for Opera North I knew at 
once that here was our 
Count.” 

Cox moves on to a favourite 
hobby-horse: the conductor’s 
contribution to a production. 
He admires Gyorgy Fischer 
for involving himself in 
Figaro rehearsals from the 
outset, but feels this is becom- 
ingly increasingly rare. “1 have 
had a string of . productions 
recently where, for whatever 
reason, the conductor has 
been distinguished by his ab- 
sence from many stage re- 
hearsals. That can't be good; 
you have got to collaborate. 
And occasionally one does get 
bitter. After all. we directors 
cannot usually just buzz off 
and do £1000 worth of work 
in three hours, and buzz back 
again.” 

Moreover, Cox believes this 
may account in part for the 
rise of what has become 
known as “producer’s opera". 
“Sometimes you hear the 
comment *1 don’t know why 


Conductor X allowed it'. Well, 
the fact is that Conductor X 
simply was not around to do 
anything about it.'’ 

Cox himself has generally 
avoided “producer's opera". 
He is concerned, however, 
that the increasing need for 
opera companies to seek pri- 
vate sponsorship to mount 
new productions will discour- 
age innovative stagings. “For 
example, we have just had a 
sponsorship offer at Scottish 
Opera, a substantial five-fig- 
ure sum which we could cer- 
tainly use. But it came with 
the proviso that ‘in view of 
recent production trends' the 
offer would be contingent on 
the sponsor being involved 
from the earliest stages in the 
artistic progress of the projecL 
I cannot even say that is 
wrong. But I cannot help 
remembering a phrase that 
was used to me in Houston ten 
years ago, when I was doing 
Rosen kavaiier. Before we 
went into rehearsal I was told 
■you must get concept clear- 
ance'. Now, if 'concept 
clearance’ is going to be the 
name of the game, we must all 
.assess our positions care- 
fully." 

After tranquil Glynde- 
bourne. Cox joined Scottish 
Opera at a traumatic time. 
Nevertheless he does not re- 
gret the move. “At Glynde- 
bourne I directed very much 
with the audience in mind. If I 
hadn't I probably would not 
have had a career. I don’t 
condemn the Glyndebourne 
audience out of hand, as many 
do. But opera is really an 
urban art form, and I find ft 
more meaningful to work in a 
big city with a broad spectrum 
of people as your target. Then 
there is the educational aspect 
of Scottish Opera, the pioneer- 
ing work sending out those 
piano-accompanied Toscas, 
peeled to the bare essentials, 
to small fishing communities 
bn the east coast where the 
passion of it comes over 
amazingly directly. That gives 
me enormous satisfaction.” 


Theatre 

Ballroom 

Stratford East 


London theatre-goers have 
seen little of Wales in recent 
years, but to judge from this 
piece by Robert Pugh nothing 
much has changed since the 
time of the Thomases, Dylan 
and Gwyn. 

Glamorgan in the Eighties 
still comes over as a stifling 
community of twitching net- 
curtains and poisonous gossip, 
where people get married to 
punish each other for life and 
the only satisfactions are those 
of domestic martyrdom and 
drink. 

Mr Pugh examines several 
stunted lives in the course of a 
long evening, but bis main 
story is that of Mary, who 
discovers that her husband 
Dick has been sneaking off 
every Monday for an eve- 
ning’s dancing. At this appall- 
ing act of disloyalty she arms 
herself with a hammer and 
hides in the back of his van, 
emerging like an avenging fury 
on the Top Rank floor, casting 
a spanner into his tango. 

Long before we get to this 
climax, any hope of comedy 
has long since evaporated. In 
tone, the piecr amounts to a 
fatal combination of Strind- 
berg and small-town gossip. 

It opens with the sight of 
Dick and his mates at work, 
sanding down service lockers 
at an RAF base and swapping 
small talk about people we 
have not met, and rough male 
horseplay that discourages 
further acquaintance with the 
company on view. 

When the action begins 
closing in, it is to follow the 
separate miseries of the or- 
phaned Bob. who gives up 
university for an ostracized 
unmarried mother, Ellis, 
whose wife goes down with 
cancer, and Mary’s old mother 
who sits at home complaining 
that nobody comes near her 
while hurling abuse at anyone 
who sets foot over her 
threshold. 

Mr Pugh is an actor and a 
performed author, and the 
only explanation that I can 
find for this less than profes- 
sional piece of work is that it 
arises from some violently 
painful experience. Some of 
the scenes are genuinely pain- 
ful. particularly when Mary 
and Dick try to patch up their 
marriage, only to enter a 
narrowing spiral ofever-more- 
bitter rows. 

But one is soon rendered 
punch-drunk by these. You 
know too well what is coming 
and the characters simply 
lurch from exhausted endear- 
ments to renewed aggression 
with no intervening stages 
between the two exiremes.lt is 
so obvious that the only hope 
these people have is to beat it 
out of Glamoigan on the next 
train, that there is small 
interest in waiting to see how 
they will next draw blood. 

The dance-floor scenes {ex- 
tremely well accompanied by 
Colin Snell and Andrew Bush) 
are much the most stage- 
worthy of Jonathan Martin's 
indecisive production. Philip 
Madoc and June Watson work 
hard and to small effect as the 
wretched partners.

The gradual superim posi-

‘Terror gang’ 

killed Briton, 
Israelis say 


From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 
Israeli security police said involved a West German tour- 
ist wounded as she walked 
into a convent in the Via 
Dolorosa, and an American 
Jew who was grazed by a 
bullet fired at him after he had 


here that they had arrested "a 
terror gang” yesterday who 
had confessed to the murder 
of an English tourist in East 
Jerusalem last Sunday and to 
three other shooting incidents 
in the city since die beginning 
of March. ' -• 

On orders of the examining 
magistrate the names of those 
arrested were not released and 
police refused to say how 
many were involved. They 
claimed, however, that the 
gang were members of the Abu 
Moussa extremist faction of 
Fatah, the military wing of the 
Palestine Liberation Organi- 
zation (PLO). 

Apart from shooting Mr 
Brian Appleby outside the 
Carden Tomb, the gang is said 
to have killed a Jewish busi- 
nesswoman. Mrs Zehava Ben- 
Ovadia. in her office only 1 SO 
yards from the scene of last 
weekend's murder. Both vic- 
tims were killed by the same 
.22 pistol fired from dose 
range into the side of the head. 

The other two shootings 


prayed at the Western Wall. 

The shootings are thought 
to be at least partly responsi- 
ble for a reported 40 per cent 
drop in American tourism to 
Jerusalem sirtee the start of 
this year and it is feared that 
the killing of Mr Appleby will 
lead to many cancellations by 
British visitors. 

Mr Teddy Kollek, the May- 
or of Jerusalem, has decided 
10 write personally to his 
many celebrity acquaintances 
around the world to ask them 
to visit Jerusalem to show 
there is no danger in travelling 
to Israel and no reason to 
panic. 

East Jerusalem, he says, is 
safer than Central Park- in 
New York. “If people stop 
travelling they are handing 
Gadaffi and other terrorists 
their victory on a silver 
platter." he said.

“I have been batty about 
fountains for more years than 1 
can remember", Mrs Thelma 
Seear. founder of The Foun- 
tain Society, said. But the 
society is not the eccentric 
brainchild of a single enthusi- 
ast. It is affiliated to the Civic 
Trust and its patron is the 
Prince of Wales. Committee 
members include Mr Qltyd 


The Fountain Society wants 
to compile a register of foun- 
tains and find places that 
would benefit from new ones. 

Parliament Square in Lou- 
don was such a place and it 
ought to be built to celebrate 
the Queen’s 60th birthday last 
week. Mrs Seear said. 

She called for higher jets of 
water from the famous foun-

screen, out of sight of the 
common mourners, in the 
stalls where once hmg the 
Duke of Windsor’s Garter 
Banner. 

Parliament too paid its re- 
spects. The Prime Minister 
and Mr Dennis Thatcher were 
joined by other party tenders 
including Mr Neil K iapock. 
Dr David Owen and Mr 
James Motyneanx. 

The stained glass west win- 
_jw of St George’s glowed 
afire in the son as file choir 
sang "We brought nothing 
into this world, and it is certain 
we can cany nothing out," 
followed by Psalm 90 with its 
Ones “The days of oar age are 
three score years and ten; and 
thoqgh men be so strong that 
they come to four score years, 
yet is there strength then but 
labour and sorrow". So was it 
with the Duchess, who came to 
four score and nine. 


Dignified yet 
impersonal service 


The Right Rev Michael 
Mann read the lesson from 2 
Corinthians: "So long as we 
are at home in body, we are . 
exiles from the Lord.” There 
was a single hymn, sung with 
the wavering uncertainty of a 
congregation unschooled in 
the tune: "Lead ns, heavenly 
father, lead as." The final 
blessing of the Archbishop of 
Canterbury, Dr Robert 
Runtie, delivered without ben- 
efit of public address, was lost 
on most of the congregation, 
whose appreciation of the 
service was punctuated by the 
occasional ramble of aircraft 
overhead. 

It was a ample, dignified 
service, yet impersonal, with 
no mention at any stage of die 
name of the deceased, nor any 
reference to her life. There was 
no address; she wanted it that 
way. 

But for a woman born in 
America who lived over half 
her life in France, her depar- 
ture from the church had a 
quintessential English ness, as 
the organ played Elgar’s Nim- 
rod , and the procession bore 
her coffin down the aisle to the 
slowest of martial steps, the 
feet of the honour guard 


beating a fimerial tatoo on the 
paving stones. • 

The coffin was followed by 
the Qneen and other members 
of the Royal family, their feces 
stern and unmoving except tor 
the Prince of Wales who wore 
an expression of particular 
sorrow; he had known the 
Duchess, if briefly, and had 
made an attempt to bridge two 
gene rations. 

Twelve pay their i 
last respects / 

The coffin was krad&f into 
its hearse by / the Welsh 
Guards at the fow of the west 
door steps, white the Royal 
family watched silently. A 
procession of five Mack limou- 
sines crawled from the 
chapel's Horseshoe Cloister 
on the last journey of all, 
through Windsor Home 
Park's private roads, away 
from all public gaze, to the 
waiting plot at nearby 
Frogmore. 

The Duchess's final com- 
panions were the Queen, the 
Duke of Edinburgh, the Prince

ADR tax 
reduced 
to 1.5% 

By Our Economics 
Correspondent 

The Treasury yesterday re- 
sponded to criticism of its 
controversial 5 per cent con- 
version tax on American De- 
positary Receipts (ADRs) by 
reducing the rate to 1.5 per 
cent. 

The reduction was an- 
nounced by Mr John 
MacGregor. Chief Secretary to 
the Treasury, during the sec- 
ond reading of the Finance 
Bill in the Commons. 

He said thaL in the light of 
representations received since 
the Budget. 11 had been decid- 
ed that a rate of 1 .5 per cent 
was sufficient to prevent 
avoidance of stamp duty by- 
British institutions. 

.ADRs are British and other 
non-US shares denominated 
in dollars and packaged in 
amounts familiar to US' inves- 
tors. About 16 per cent of lCI’s 
shares are held in this form. 

The Treasury has main- 
tained that the proposed 5 per 
cent conversion lax on ADRs. 
announced in the March 18 
Budget, was not to prevent US 
investors holding British 
shares in ADR form, but to 
stop British investors avoid- 
ing stamp duly by doing so. 

The Chancellor of the Ex- 
chequer. Mr Nigel Lawson, 
said in a written Parliamenta- 
ry answer that he had re- 
examined the rate of tax 
needed to eliminate the incen- 
tive to avoid stamp duty by- 
British investors, and had 
decided that 1 .5 per cent was 
appropriate both to do this 
3nd to provide recompense for 
any lost stamp duty revenue 
remaining 

The 1.5 per cent rate will 
apply to alt British shares in 
bearer form. 

Mr Lawson also announced 
seven-day exemption from 
stamp duty for broker-dealers, 
and the removal of stamp duty 
from most loan stocks 
The protest lobby against 
the ADR tax — it included JCJ 
- had proposed an alternative 

which would have penalized 

only British users of ADRs.

become of increasing concern 
over the last few years as bad 
debts have escalated. 

Scrimgeour Vickers, the 
stockbroker, has carried nnt 
what it claims is the first 
comprehensive survey of the 
controls banks impose on their 
lending and the criteria they 
impose on lending decisions. 

The survey concludes that 
NafV\ est's method of double 
checking helps put it far ahead 
Ilf the Other three clearer? in 
maintaining the qnality of |,s 
loan**. 

The NatWest system means 
that ail but the smallest loans 
are assessed both by a lending 


guidelines and more detailed 
controls on off-balance sheet 
risk and country risk than 
most of its competitors. 

NatWest tends to take more 
risks, such as making 100 per 
cent loans on construction 
projects where other banks 
lend less, bat the differences 
between the banks' lending 
criteria are less significant 
than nn other lending controls, 
the review says. 

Midland comes off second 
besL largely because of im- 
provements after its disastrous 
investment in Crocker Nation- 
al. the US bank. 

Evidence of Midland's im- 


provement is that it now has a 
340-strong Internal Audit and 
Inspection Department which 
did nut exist before the Crock- 
er investment. It has also set 
ap a Risk Management Divi- 
sion in the last two years. 

But Seri ingeo Dr Vickers 
warn that it takes time for 
improved controls to percolate 
through to the general quality 
of loans and that Midland had 
suspect loans which could still 
cause significant problems. 

Barclays and Lloyds are 
criticized for having no inde- 
pendent finance director on 
their boards who is responsi- 
ble for prudential controls 
rather than lending. . 

Barclays's lending control 
mechanism tends to be domi- 
nated b> committees which 
produce “uninspiring" results. 

Lloyds b introducing a so- 
phisticated new "capital allo- 
cation system" but it has had 
little time yet to affect the 
lending portfolio.

Bank plays it safe with 
new debt market 


The Government has finally given 
the go-ahead to the long-awaited 
sterling commercial paper market, 
allowing companies to issue short- 
term debt securities of between seven 
days and one year under their own 
name. The move adds another 
weapon to the armoury of corporate 
financing arrangements and could 
lead to a multi-billion pound market 
if it takes off in this country as it has 
donein the US in recent years. 

John MacGregor. Chief Secretary 
to the Treasury, yesterday told Par- 
liament during the Finance Bill 
debale that the Banking Act restric- 
tions on companies issuing iheirown 
debt instruments ofless than one year 
would be swept away. The Bank of 
England followed up swiftly with a 
detailed list of rules laying out the 
framework of the new market — and 
the list makes interesting reading. It 
makes dear that the Bank is taking no 
risks and prefers a policy of gradually 
loosening the screws rather than an 
immediate free-for-ail. 

Companies allowed to issue 
commercial paper will only be those 
with a Stock Exchange listing and net 
assets of at least £50 million. Wholly- 
owned subsidiaries of such compa- 
nies can issue paper as long as it is 
guaranteed by the parent. Banks, 
building societies and licensed de- 
posit-lakers. on the other hand, may 
not issue commercial paper on the 
grounds that they already have access 
to certificates of deposit Their role 
will be limited to managing and 
guaranteeing commercial paper pro- 
grammes. 

To ensure that the new market 
remains purely professional, the 
minimum issue size is set at £500.000 
— enough to discourage even the 
most adventurous private investors. 
This will help to get round the 
problem of prospectuses. The 
Companies Act requires all compa- 
nies to publish a prospectus with 
every' issue of debt securities. This is 
an impossibly cumbersome require- 
ment for a short-term market like 
commercial paper and will be modi- 
fied in the forthcoming Financial 
Serv ices Act later this year. But in the 


meantime, the Companies Act does 
allow the issue of securities without . 
prospectuses as long as they are sold 
only to professional investors. 

The rule which will cause the most 
disappointment, though, is certain lo 
be that limiting the management of 
commercial paper programmes only 
to banks and licensed deposit-takers 
incorporated in the UK.. The Bank 
insists that this is a purely temporary 
measure against the time (unlikely to 
be in the near future) when banking 
supervision rules are the same 
throughout the world. 

In the meantime, it can only ensure 
a level playing field by limiting the 
game to those under its own super- 
vision. although it has left open the 
possibility of making exceptions of 
individual institutions. Llnfortu- 
naiely. by excluding many, such as 
the US securities houses with their 
wide experience of the US market, 
the Bank may be holding back the 
early development of the commercial 
paper market in this country. 

The Government's move received 
a predictably warm welcome in the 
City. Most of the clearing and 
merchant banks have been building 
up commercial paper teams over the 
past few months, and there is clearly a 
demand for the new market from 
commercial borrowers. Commercial 
paper, after all, is fast, flexible and 
fairly cheap in comparison to other 
short-term funding options. 

But there is unlikely to be a sudden 
bonanza. Banks will advise their 
clients to move cautiously at least 
until the wrinkles of the Bank of 
England rulebook have been ironed 
out and until the market has devel- 
oped an efficient pricing mechanism. 

And no! everyone will need the 
new market. The large trading 
corporations — the ICIs of this world 
— will probably find that bankers 
acceptances are still a cheaper form of 
short-term borrowing. While many 
borrowers may hurry lo announce 
commercial paper programmes (giv- 
ing them an issuing facility), the 
amount of paper actually issued early 
on is likely to be small. 


No words over the figures 


The Industrial Trends Survey, now 
published quarterly by the Confed- 
eration of British Industry, has 
acquired all the respectability suit- 
able to a barometer which has just 
given its hundredth reading. The 
survey, based on questionnaires filled 
in by nearly 1 ,600 firms, has found its 
way into the corridors of official 
statistics. Its findings are incor- 
porated into the Central Statistical 
Office's indices of longer-leading, 
shorter-leading and coincident in- 
dicators of the state of the British 
economy, as well as in the composite 
survey of business sentiment in 
Europe compiled by the European 
Commission. 

More controversially, the CBFs 
monthly trends inquiry is now used 
by government statisticians to boost 
the monthly statistics of manufac- 
turing output, whose initial down- 
ward bias has been a source of 
irritation to Treasury ministers: an 


intriguing example of government 
preference for private-sector inform- 
ation to the product of its own fact- 
finding machine. 

There is a further example: in its re- 
cent Budget forecast, the Treasury 
openly plumped for CBI evidence 
that investment will continue to rise 
strongly, in preference to the gloom- 
ier results of lhe investment in- 
tentions survey carried out by the 
Department of Trade and Industry. 

Such touching faith in the statis- 
tical prowess of the CBI contrasts 
starkly with the Treasury's view of 
the CBI's economic prescriptions. 
Although relations between the 
employers' organization and the 
Government are gentler than in the 
days when bare knuckles were 
clenched in front of Mrs Thatcher, 
the CBI's views on the need for lower 
interest rates, membership of the 
European Monetary System and 
public investment packages are a 
series of thorns in government flesh. 


Profits at an 
all time recon 


1985/86 

RESULTS 



“1 am delighted that the Board have been able to 
justify the support and confidence of share- 
holders. Profits have risen by 19.8% to an all time 
record of £27.4m (1984/85: £22.9m) and the 
proposed final dividend of 2.5p will bring the total 
dividend for the year to 4p per ordinary 
share (1984/85: 3. Ip per share). I look to a satis- 
factory increase in earnings and dividend in the 
current year" 

“Intensive planning has resumed on the expansion 
of the Group. This process will receive consider- 
able impetus from the recent recruitment of 
Geoffrey Maddrell to be Managing Director of 
the Group. He brings a proven experience of 
business development which will be of great 
benefit to us in this next phase of Tootal's profit- 
able growth to the continuing benefit of its 
shareholders, managers and employees."

are plans to branch out into 
low-cosi local authority hous- 
ing and retirement homes. 
And the non-executive chair- 
man, Mr David Winch, for- 
merly of Tarmac, has plenty 
of acquisition ideas. 

At I45p. the shares are 
being offered on 12.6 times 
pro forma historic earnings 
which is low enough to 
ensure a wide spread of 
investment interest. 

Tootal 

Tooial promised its share- 
holders £27 million pretax 
profit for the year to January 
31 as pan of its defence 
against the unwelcome bid 
from Enlrad, the Australian 
textile group. 

Shareholders' loyalty was 
vindicated yesterday when 
Tooial announced a pretax 
profit of £27.4 million. 20 per 
cent above the I9S4/5 result 
of £22.9 million. 

The share price now stands 
at 102p, well above the 78p 
Entrad got for the sale of its 
holding when it finally aban- 
doned its interest in Tooial 
towards the end of last year. 

Beating off the bid ab- 
sorbed a considerable 
amount of management time 
and effort, but with the 
appointment of Mr Geoffrey 
Madrell earlier this year, the 
stage is now set for more 
aggressive expansion. 

After the management 
changes, Tootal sees its main 
strength as being an interna- 
tional textile company. In a 
business where costs are ev- 
erything, the ability to obtain 
materials from the cheapest 
source is key to market 
leadership. 

Tootal is one of the world's 
largest sewing thread suppli- 
ers. Thread, which accounts 
for more than 50 per cent of 
pre-interest profit, showed a 
14 per cent decline in 1 985/6, 
due entirely to adverse cur- , 
rency movements. 

Approximately 50 per cent 
of textiles profits of £8.5 
million was earned from the 
supply of waxed batik fabric, 
mainly to West Africa. 

Excluding batik. Tootal's 
position in textiles is small 
but profitable. 

Low cost sources are also 
important in the clothing 
sector where profits nearly 
doubled in 1985/6 to £3.9 
million. In addition to sup- 
plying Maries and Spencer, 
Tootal raenswear and Raysil 
and Slimma womenswear are 
the main activities. 

Assuming further pretax 
profit advances to £29 mil- 
lion in 1986/7, Tootal is on a 
prospective multiple of 10.4 
times earnings. With a yield 
of 53 percent, the shares are 
strongly supported. 


Institutional investors re- 
turned in force yesterday, 
encouraged by a firm Wall 
Street, the strong pound, 
hopes that the ADR tax 
penalty would be relaxed (it 
was) and the general health of 
the economy in the shape of 
falling inflation and cheaper 
borrowing. 

The FT 30-share index rose 
by 25.9 points to 1.391.2 — 
one of the highest one-day 
rises on record — while the FT- 
SE 100 climbed by 27.5 to 
1.656.3. 

Cheerful profits news from 
the building groups Blue Cir- 
cle and Tarmac were addition- 
al stimulants. 

Bine Circle led the field with 
a 43p jump to 7I6p, helped by 
better-ihan-cxpected profits 
and the absence of a rumoured 
rights issue. Tarmac produced 
profits up by 24 per cent, 
taking the shares Sp higher at 
486p. 

Guinness, recently de- 
pressed by the battle for 
Distillers, rebounded I7p to 
3l3p. ICI jumped 1 5p to 934p 
on hopes that the ADR tax 
will be reduced and two other 
US favourites. Jaguar at 466p

UK fights 
for Euro 
office 

By Teresa Poole 

The Government yesterday 
launched an aggressive cam- 
paign to win Britain its first 
permanent European Econom- 
ic Community office with a list 
of four possible London sites 
for the community trade 
marks office. 

Stiff competition is expected 
from Germany, the Nether- 
lands and France, but British 
officials argue that it is 
Britain's turn to provide a 
major community facility. 

The Government has also 
made it dear that financial 
support — such as rates and 
rent holidays — will be avail- 
able if London is the chosen 
location. 

The proposed sites are St 
Katherine by the Tower, 
Cockspur Street SWL, Central 
Harrow and Central Croydon. 
Apart from the Cockspur 
Street scheme, which would 
involve a refurbishment, the 
proposals are for new purpose- 
built offices at a cost of about 
£15 million. 

The site considered most 
suitable will be put forward 
when bids from member states 
are formally invited by the 
community in about three 
months' time. This is the first 
time that the Government has 
lobbied so fiercely for a com- 
munity office. 


Redfeam 

recovery 

continues 

By Richard Lander 

Redfeam National Glass 
gave further confirmation of 
its recovery yesterday by de- 
daring an interim dividend for 
the first time in four years. 

The Yorkshire manufactur- 
er of glass and plastic contain- 
ers is paying 15p a share after 
turning in a pretax profit of 
£306,000 in the six months to 
March 30 against a loss of 
£ 688.000 in the same period 
last year. 

The encouraging first ha 
follows a strong second six 
months last year which result- 
ed in a £1.08- million annual 
pretax profit and a 2p final 
dividend. 

Both the glass and the 
plastics divisions emerged 
from the red in the first half 
hot Mr Arthur Church, the 
chief executive, said overca- 
pacity in the glass container 
market had led to stiff compe- 
tition. This prevented price 
increases planned for January 

Describing the dividend as a 
cautions one, Mr Church said: 
“Until we know what is going 
to happen to competition in the 
glass industry, we would like 
to have a full year's results 
under our belts before deciding 
our dividend policy". 

He also said Redfeam's 
financial situation had im- 
proved after the £1.65 million 
refund from company pension ■ 
schemes allowed last October! 
by the Inland Revenue.! 
Redfeam shares, which have 
more than doubled in the last, 
six months, added 12p after! 
the results hot slipped back tol 
dose unchanged at 211p. I 


reason. Wellcome recovered 
6p to 1 9 ! p ahead of 
Thursday's interim statement. 

In contrast. Beecham fell 8p 
to 405p as the ICI chairman 
dampened recent bid specula- 
tion. In firm eleciricals. GEC 
rose 14p to 208p as de Zoete 
recommended the shares to 
institutions. Hanson Trust ral- 
lied !2p to 179p after recent 
weakness caused by the Imps 
acquisition. 

Strong banks had Natwest 
up 20p to 8S5p after the 
chairman's optimistic state- 
ment at the annual meeting. 
Lloyds Bank, which has sold 
its Californian interests for 
£170 million, was I5p higher 
at 609p. Insurances scored 


gains into double figures, with 
Royal 1 Sp up at 932p. 

Marks and Spencer gave up 
2p to 2I4p. ahead of results 
next month, while Tate and 
Lyle, reporting ioday. lost Sp 
to 633p. 

Costain, anticipating 
todai's figures, improved by 
I6p to 532p. British Aero- 
space at S60p. up lOp and 
Burmah. 20p higher at 358p. 
reflected favourable recom- 
mendations from at least three

FINANCE AND INDUSTRY/Law 


Start-up entrepreneurs 
face a cut in salary 


21 


The 1986 entrepreneur is 
most likely to be an ex- 
manager, aged over 35, with a 
professional qualification or 
degree and about £50,000 to 
invest Taking the entrepre- 
neurial route -will also proba- 
bly mean taking a cut m 
salary. . 

A major problem is lack of 
both personal and external 
finance. So, less expectedly, is 
die Lack of a suitable manage- 
ment team, identified as a 
fnoblem by 40 per cent of 
those in a new survey profiling 
the typical entrepreneur. 

The survey, by Mori, the 
pollster, covered entrepre- 
neurs receiving help from the 
British Venture Capital Asso- 
ciation, which commissioned 
it One in three of the entre- 
preneurs identified quality 
and drills of management as a 
major problem. 

According to the survey,“If 
you wish to raise' venture 
capital you will need a proven 
management team and be

prepared to invest a signifi- 
cant sum personally and to 
take a salary cut Having done 
this, you should be able to 
look, forward to a major 
growth in your investment - 
and a lot of hard work." 

Personal investment by en- 
trepreneurs varies considera- 
bly- One in four invested less 
than £10,000 and one in seven 
more than £100.000. The in- 
vestments seem to have been 
successful, with about half 
those surveyed valuing their 
present stakes at more than 
£200,000, while one in five 
thought their shares were 
worth more than £1 million. 

Excluding the investment in 
their own businesses and any 
pension fund entitlements, 
half those questioned estimat- 
ed their persona! net worth at 
more than £200,0001 

Most seemed content with 
growth in the value of their 
shares rather than taking high 
salaries. About 64 per cent 
have annual salaries — includ- 


ing the effect of fringe benefits 
— of less than £43.000 while 
another 23 per cent are in the 
£40.000 to £60,000 bracket. 
Only 1 per cent receive more 
than £100,000. 

One in three of those sur- 
veyed identified taking a sala- 
ry out and lack of financial 
skills as problems. But few 
were worried about loss of 
status, family opposition or a 
lack of suitable business ideas. 

Injections of venture capital 
led to turnover increases in 
three out of four ventures, and 
half reported a big effect on 
numbers employed. On aver- 
age it meant taking on be- 
tween 30 and 40 workers. 

About 60 per cent of those 
in the survey had increased 
their investment in product 
development, improved their 
sales and marketing effective- 
ness and enlarged their pro- 
duction capacity. But four out 
of 10 felt that finding addi- 
tional capital could pose a big 
problem. 


Computer voice gives rating 


A speaking computer is

being used in a low cost 
company information service 
on offer from today by Dun & 
Bradstreet, which claims to be 
the world’s biggest credit refer- 
ences agency. 

The agency has been operat- 
ing a similar service from its 
United States headquarters 
for two years, but it says that 
this is the first time the latest 
voice technology has been 
used for credit references in 
Britain. 


The telephone service, 
called DunsVoice, uses the 
recorded voice of a British 
actress. Information is given 
on such hems as a company’s 
credit rating, its latest ac- 
counts and whether it has 
county court judgments 
against it This enables an 
assessment to be made on 
whether it would be an accept- 
able company with which to 
do business. 

Normally a credit search on 
a company costs from £1 5 but 


the new service will mean an 
average cost of £6 to £7. 

It would enable frequent 
checks on a company to be 
made, and should be especial- 
ly useful to those like whole- 
salers dealing with a large 
number of comparatively 
small accounts. 

Dun & Bradstreet has about 
1 .4 million British limited 
companies on its database, 
and subscribers to its service 
have to pay a minimum of 
£150 to buy units,

Law Report April 30 1986 


Commission’s disclosure of 


finance plans is lawful 


▼ Monopolies aad 
Mergers Commission, Ex par- 
te Elders IXL Ltd 
Before Mr Justice Mann 
[Judgment given April 29] 

The Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission had acted properly 
in deciding to disclose to a 
company being acquired the 
details of the bidder's financing 
plans which had been submitted 
to it, Mr Justice Mann held in 
the Queen'S Bench Division. 

His Lordship dismissed an 
application by. Elders IXL Ltd 
for judicial review of the de- 
cision by the commission to 
disclose to representatives of 
Aliied-Lyons pic the contents of 
chapter 7 of Elders' submission 
to the commission made in the 
course of an. investigation by the 
commission pursuant to the 
Fair Trading Act 1973 following 
upon a merger reference made 
to the commission on behalf of 
the Secretary of State for Trade 
and Industry under the AcL 
Chapter 7 contained details of 
new financing arrangements in 
relation to Elders' revised bid, 
including how the renewed bid 
would be financed, an indica- 
tion of the final bid and details 
a f how the initial bank loan 
woold be refinanced on a longer 
term basis . 


Mr Robert Alexander, QC. 

“ “ 1 Mr 


Mr David Oliver, QC and 
Mark Howard for Elders; Mr 
Mark Li Oman, QC, Mr John 
Mummery and Mr Adrian 
Hughes for the commission; Mr 
John Swift, QC and Mr Stephen 
Richards for Aliied-Lyons pic. 


MR JUSTICE MANN said 
that under sections 69(1 Kb) and 
75(2) and (4Mc) of the 1973 Act 
the commission mist investi- 
gate and report upon the ques- 
tion whether the prospective 
results of the ar r ange ments in 
contemplation would, if those 
arrangements had been made 
and the results occurred before 
the date of the reference, give 
rise to a situation which “op- 
erates or may be expected to 
operate against the public 
interest”. 


copy oi 

laid before Parliament and the 
secretary of state would decide 
whether the bid was or was not 
to proceed. 

Section 133 contained general 
restrictions on dadosure of 
information. 

The commission's decision 
was attacked on the ground that 
the commission was guilty of 
procedural impropriety in that 
the decision to disclose was 
unfair to Elders in that its 
interest in non-disclosure was 
hot sufficiently taken into ac- 
count and on the ground that 
disclosure would contravene 
section 133(1) of the Act. 

His Lordship formed the view 
that it was difficult to appreciate 
the commission's decision with- 
out reading chapter 7. The 
interests of justice required that 
it should be disclosed in camera. 

There was no dispute but that 
in the performance of its 
inquisitorial function the 
commission must act fairly to 
the parties concerned. Fairness 
.was a flexible concept whose 
content was dependent upon the 
context which was under 
consideration. 

There was no set of rules of 
fairness which was applicable to 
all investigative processes. 
There was no general rule that 
one party to an investigation 
should be given an the material 
submitted by another party. 

What was fair in relation to a 
particular process and to a 
particular situation was for 
determination by the court. ( 

The complaint was that the 
commission focused upon fair- 
ness to Allied and did not 
sufficiently take account of die 
disproportionate harm which 
could thereby be caused to 
Eiders by a revelation of the 
financial arrangements. 

Those considerations of fair- 
ness arose in the course of a 
statutory investigation as to 
what was not or was in the 
public interest. 

It was plain from what his 
Lordship heard in camera that 
the commission was of the view 


that it could not perform its 
investigative function without 
knowing Allied's views upon the 
consequences for the business of 
the arrangement in chapter 7. 
That view was not attacked as 
irrational. 

The commission considered 
whether its objective could be 
achieved and the detriment 
Elders might suffer be avoided 
by means of a formulation of 
questions to Allied. The 
commission had concluded that 
its objective could not be so 
achieved. 

The commission was correct 


in subordinating a perceived 
detriment to its judgment of 


how best to perform ns statutory 
There 


functions. There was no sugges- 
tion that the subordination was 
irrational or otherwise than in 
good frith. 

Turning to the argument 
founded on section 1 33. the 
question was whether the excep- 
tion in subsection (2Xa)applied- 
That provided that the restric- 
tion on disclosure of informa- 
tion in subsection (I) did not 
apply to any disclosure of j 
information which was made 
“for the purpose of facilitating 
the performance of* any func- 
tions of the commission. 


The exception was not drawn 
as “for facilitating” but as “for 
the purpose of facilitating”. The 
former form would require an 
objective examination of] 
whether disclosure did or did 
not facilitate. The latter form 
involved an inquiry as to what 
ihe commission had in mind. 


The commission's intention 
was to facilitate the performance 
of its functions. It was not 
suggested that the intention was 
either irrational or formula led 
in bad frith. 

It would be unfortunate if the 
commission were to be put in 
peril of exercises in objectivity 
by the court during the course of I 
discharging the difficult func- 
tions put upon it by the Act.

Proving false statement in perjury 


Regina v Rider 

Before Lord Justice MustiU, Mr 
Justice Hodgson and Mr Justice 
Wood 

Judgment given April 25] 

In an action for perjury where 
the prosecution set out to prove 
that a statement was untrue and 
did not invite a conviction on 
any other basis, the trial judge 


the qualification that if the 
defendant admitted that the 
statement was untrue, the 
prosecution did not need to call 
any evidence to prove that, and 
section 13 would not apply. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in dismissing an appeal against 
conviction brought by Theresa 
Ann Rider against her convic- 
tion under section 1(1) of the 
1911 Act 

The appellant had obtained a 
divorce by filling in the 
acknowledgement of service 
document intended for the 
respondent spouse, and by forg- 
ing her husband's signature. She 
appealed against conviction on 
the ground that there was a 
misdirection in law in that the 
judge failed to refer the jury lo 
section 13 of the 1911 Act. 

Section 1 3 states: “A person 
shall not be liable to be con- 
victed of any offence under this 
Act . . - solely upon the evidence 
of one witness as to the falsity of 
any state merit alleged to be 
false”. 

Miss Zoe Smith, assigned by 
the Registrar of Criminal Ap- 
peals for the appellant; Mr 

Martin Heslop for the prosecu- 
tion. 


1(1) and section 13. The latter 
simply required more than one 
witness “as to the falsity of any 
statement alleged to be false”. 

Thus, in throe very rare cases 
where the prosecution elected to 
proceed on the basis that the 
truth or falsehood of the state- 
ment formed no part of their 
case, section 13 did not apply 
and there was no need for any 
direction on the point. 

In all other cases, however, 
where the prosecution did set 
out to prove that the statement 
in question was untrue, and did 
not invite a conviction on any 
other basis, the trial judge 
should, subject to one important 
qualification, always bring sec- 
tion 13 to the attention of the 
jury. 

The qualification was that if 
the defendant admitted that the 
statement was untrue, the 
prosecution did not need to call 
any evidence to prove that fact. 
Section 13 would not apply and 
there was no place for a direc- 
tion on the matter. 


in the instant case there was | 
no doubt that the prosecution 
set out to prove that the 
statement was untrue. Thus 
there was a need for more than 1 
one witness to prove the un- 
truth. and a corresponding need 
for a direction on the subject, 
unless it coutd fairly be said no 
longer to have been in issue, 
when the time came for the 
judge to direct the jury. 

Unfortunately it was impos- 
sible to know with certainly 
what happened at the trial. The 
court was therefore constrained 
to hold lhal there should have 
been a direction on section 13. 

However, it was inconceiv- 
able that if the jury had been 
given a short direction on 
section 13. they would not have 
found, in the other evidence led 
by the prosecution, sufficient 
material to corroborate the ev- 
idence of the husband on a 
matter which was only tech- 
nically in issue.

Error in committal 


Regina v Blyth VaBey Jus- 
tices. Ex parte Fawcns 
A defendant in full committal 
proceedings was entitled to call 
witnesses in his defence without 
giving evidence himself, the 
Queen's Bench Divisional 
Court (Lord Justice Glidewell 
and Mr Justice Schiemann) held 
on April 21 when granting an 


application for judicial review 
the justices' de- 


and quashing 

cision to commit the applicant 
for trial at the crown court. 


LORD JUSTICE MU STILL 
said lhal there was no true 
inconsistency between section 


LORD JUSTICE GLIDE- 
WELL said that the justices took 
the view that rule 7(10) of the 


Magistrates' Courts Rules (SI 
)98l No 552 |LI)> which pro- 
vided I ha! **. . . the court shot) 
give (the accused) an opportu- 
nity to give evidence himself | 
ana to call witnesses” should be 
read conjunctively and that the 
defendant could only call ev- 
idence if giving evidence him- 
self. 

That that was wrong was clpar 
b> reference to rule 6(2). The 
fundamental right of an accused 
not to give evidence but to call 
witnesses on his behalf was not 
in any way inhibited. Rule 7( 10) 
had lo be read in conjunction 
with rule 6(2).

Spanish aid 
to finance 
a home on 
the Costa 

By Diana Wil d man 

- As AagJo-Sjpflnish tics continue to 
gWhav since last week’s state visit to 

- t3£^i uns J H?“ ^os “d Queen 
Sofe and the merging of interests caused 
°y Spain, sentry into the EEC, so the idea 
of a holiday home purchase in Spain is 
proving attractive again. 

Prices have risen sharply, particularly 
alongthe Costa del Sol, since the lifting 
of UK. exchange controls in 1979, 
resulting is more UK buyers requiring a 
mortgage. * 

Bilbao’s City of London 
branch has beenfinancing private prop- 
erty investment in Spain tor the last five 
HtTfe bank can arrange loans from 
£5,000, which are granted for a maxi- 
mum 10 years, using the Spanish 
purchase as collateral. 

Roger Knights of Banco de Bilbao 
. says:. “Finance is available for up to 60 

- per cent of the home’s value at current 

base raiefor, in th^ case o^sccuritv piecing architectural style of this snail apartment complex gives an air ofi 
offered in the UK, 3 per cent over base. trasMioilisty, which is in stark contrast to the frenetic jet-setting lifestyle off 
Though finance is made available for ™ arbeUa j"*t * 10-minute drive away. One, two and three bedroom flats are for 
properties already built, loans can be sale from £46^04 to £84,000 

authorized, in principle, for individual 
purchases within new developments' 
under construction.” 

*- Marbella and neighbourin g Puerto 
Ban us continue to prove popular with 
the leisured rich. The property choice is 
huge; not least because some developers 
over-estimated demand after the 1983 
sales boom. 

Today, more and more buyers, espe- 
cially. those intending to spend some 
months holidaying each year, prefer to 
live ift a more tranquil environment but 
still be near the coast. 

Las Terrazas, a delightful develop- 
ment of apartments being built on a 
hillside five kilometres above San Pedro 
de Alcantara, has the dual advantages of 
being a 10-minute drive from the 
Marbella Club while eqjoying a rural 
setting. It has southerly views over the 
Mediterranean from its position among 
the rolling foothills of the Sierra Blanca. 

The first Mode of 24 units is completed 
and all are sold, while the 25 apartments 
in the second phase are due for staged 
completion this June, July and Septem- 
. her. The scheme has been designed in 
traditional Spanish style with old roof 
tiles being incorporated in a seemingly 
haphazard way creating an illusion, of an 
Andalusian cluster pueblo — the more so 
as every home fas a different-sized 
balcony or terrace with the larger ones 
wrapped around two sides of the 
apartment. 

The developer of Las Terrazas, Paul 
Simard, aims to have no.twohomes alike 


so the individualist has plenty of choice. 
Provided building is not too fhr ad- 
vanced, off-plan buyers can choose the 
floor tiles, bathroom fittings and kitchen 
style they prefer. The apartments have 
fitted wardrobes in all bedrooms, there is 
a bathroom for every bedroom and 
marble flooring is standard. All have 
working fireplaces and central healing 
can be installed if required. 

The vast swimming pool, set in 
gardens overlooked by the apartments, 
and its adjacent clubhouse is due for 
completion early this summer and the 
first of three tennis courts will be started 
by late summer. 

Mr Simard offers both a management 
and rental service and a full interior- 
design facility. 

Eighteen one, two and and three 
bedroom homes are for sale — at £46.364 
for the only one-bedroom unit available, 
between £49,100 and £66,800 for two 
bedrooms and £71,800 and £84,000 for 
three bedrooms. 

Details are available from Las 
Terrazas, Urb. Hacienda El Aznendro, 
Box 422, San Pedro de Alcantara,

In total contrast to the sophisticated 
Las Terrazas and its environs is the 
bustling coastal town of Benalmadena, 


just eight kilometres west of Malaga's 
international airport. Here. Chest enons 
are selling harbourside homes at the new 
Marina Benalmadena, which is two 
minutes' walk from the main shopping 
centre but situated in a self-contained 
environment overlooking the marina, 
which is already complete. 

Forty-eight of the 140 apartments 
planned for the first phase are being built 
at the edge of the marina and are grouped 
around a central square, which mil have 
small shops, bars and restaurants. 

The plan is for the plaza to be traffic- 
free. Most homes will have sea views and 
the scheme is adjacent to a sandy beach 
for the use of residents. Eventually it will 
have its own beach dub. 

There will 'be 550 homes grouped in 
clusters around the marina and pan of 
the plan is to create four linked islands, 
each with its own pueblo within the inner 
harbour. Marina Benalmadena has been 
designed to recreate the feel of an 
Andalusian fishing village and berths 
will be available for purchase. 

Because of this area's appeal to the 
package holiday market, the rental 
return should be good. Chestertons 
expect great interest from the long-term 
retirement market because the marina is 
close to the town centre with all its 
facilities, including a clinic and a bus 
route. 

Chestertons Residential is at 116 
Kensington High Street, London W8 
7RW, tel: 01-937 7244.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY APRIL 30 1986 







*«!**"£■*• ' 


Valuable Witness, who will be ideally suited by the yielding surface at Ascot 


Given the right conditions 
underfoot, Jeremy Tree's inju- 
ry-prone six-year-old is as 
good a slayer as there is in the 
country. He is also capable of 
winning first time out. as he 
proved Iasi year. So I expect 
him to make another good 
beginning, even though he 
comes from another stable 
which is not exactly firing on 
all cylinders yet. 

Spicy Story, who was one of 
the uniuckiest losers of last 
season in this very race: 
Eastern Mystic and Ramich 
John, the Irish challenger, who 
has stayed over since finishing 
a close third behind Supreme 
Leader at San down last Satur- 
day, will undoubtedly provide 
stiff opposition, but I feel that 
an in-form Valuable Witness 



will be too strong for them on 
the prevailing soft ground. 

Following a good run in the 
Newbury Spring Cup, Virgin 
Isle is taken to win the 
lnsulpak Victoria Cup. which 
Patrick Haslam, his trainer, 
won two years ago with 
Mummy's Pleasure. 

At Newbury nothing was 
going better than Virgin Isle 

passing the seven-furlong 

marker. However, he weak- 
ened towards the end of the 
eighth and last furlong and 
finished fifth. Bui he was siill 
beaten only two lengths and he 
holds Com Street on that 
running. He should be hard to 
beat over today's slightly 
shorter distance. 

On the jumping front, I 
expect Singalong Sam to 


prove a lough nut to crack in 
the Haddington Jubilee Cup 2 i 
Kelso. The winner of two 
chases on the course already, 
he was far from disgraced at 
Liverpool, even though he did 
finish last of six eventually in 
the race won by Arctic Beau. 
The winner went on lo run ihe 
race of his life in last 
Saturday's Whitbread Gold 
Cup. 

With Cheerie Chief. Coul- 
ters Candy. Urser. YougJial 
and Olive Press all standing 
their ground, ihe SMT United 
Border Hunt Chase looks like 
being a real treat in store for 
visitors to the Scottish course. 
My vote goes to Olive Press, 
even though today's course 
w as ihe scene of ihe only blot 
on his copybook this season.

Not even Frost can

From Richard Eaton, Jakarta 




18 in 2,000 

Eighteen horses nere de- 
clared at yesterday's four-day 
stage for the General Accident 
2.000 Guineas at Newmarket 
on Saturday. They are: 
Alshinfarah (A Murray). 
Dancing Brave (G Starkey), 
Exotic River fG Mossek 
Fa m com be (— ). Faustns (S 
Cauthen), Green Desert (W 
$u inborn). Hall To Roberto

Martin), Nomrood (T Quinn), 
Sharrood (W Carson), 
Soughaan (-), Sure Blade (B 
Thomson). Tale Gallery (T 
I»es). Toca Madera (S 
Craine), \'aingIorions (— ). 


Despite a highly satisfying 1 5- 
». ) 5-3 victory for Monen Frost 
the All-England champion, over 
Han Jian. the world champion. 
Denmark could not overcome 
the Asian dominance of the 
Thomas Cup world team 
championships here yesterday. 
China's 3-1 winning lead took 
them through to the final where 
they will meet either the holders, 
Indonesia, or Malaysia. 

Not since 1979 have a Euro- 
pean country contested the final 
and. with the service of Isiora 
Senayan. it was alway-s going lo 
be difficult to change ihaL 

Frost, however, had made il 
look possible. Despite the 
doubts that ihe London-based 
Dane had been uttering about 
his fitness, he was physically 
superior to the man who beat 
him surprisingly in the world 
final at Calgary last year- ~I have 
been playing poker with three 
three's in' my hand." Frost said. 
Yesterday it looked more like 
three kings. 

From 1U-7 through to the end 
of the first game Frost pushed 
fast clears out to each comer. 
Has neat and tight with his play 
around the net. and was re- 
warded with a siring of un- 
characteristic errors from the 
little Chinese player who is 
normally steady and patient. 

Roger Johansson, of Sweden, 
the assistant referee, came on io 
sort out the muddle, which was 
compounded by Frost trying to 
reverse the linesman's decision 
in his opponent's favour. Such 


generosity could be afforded 
yesterday. ^ 

But singles defeats for lb 
Frederiksen (to Yang Yang) and 
for Michael K/cldsen (to Xiang 
Cuobal) homed Denmark to 
defeat.Latcr there was another 
Chinese victory when ihwv 
reached the Uber Cup final for 
the second successive time by 
beating South Korea's women- 

When Denmark play England 
and Sweden next season there 
could be a revolution in the 
scoring system. The Inter- 
national Badminton Federation 
agreed at their annual meeting 
that these or any other countries 
would be allowed to experiment 
with a shortened system of nine 
points only for five games, as a 
way of making the sport more 
attractive for television. 

Another proposal to change 
the women's singles scoring 
from 1 1 points per game to the 
1 5 used by the men was referred 
to the International Badminton 
Federation council HBF). It may 
have difficulty in becoming 
accepted because it is widely felt 
to discourage women's singles ai 
the grass roots. But a proposal to 
simplify the service rules, which 
have created a good deal of 
argument with different inter- 
pretations. has been accepted. 

Meanwhile, South Africa will 
remain a member of the 1BF. A 
move from the Soviet Union. 
Nigeria and Norway to have 
that country expelled failed to 
gain ihe -necessary three-quar- 
lers majority, although ihe vot- 
ing was 18-13 in favour 


GOLF 


Conservative path 
attracts Garner 


By Mitchell Platts 


Maureen Garner wifi not be 
too alarmed if she fails to 
emulate Kitrina Douglas and 
Gillian Stewart by winning the 
Ford Ladies Classic which will 
start ai Woburn Golf and Coun- 
try Gub today. Miss Douglas 
and Miss Stewart began their 
careers by winning this annua] 
curtain-raiser to the Women's 
PG A season. 

Mrs Gamer is beginning what 
she hopes will be a fruitful 
career, although she is sensibly 
i taking a conservative view 
rather than insisting that she 
will stan as fast as her former 
amateur colleagues. 

“I have to be encouraged by 
what Kitrina and Gillian have 
achieved.” Mrs Gamer said. "I 
can relate to them as golfers 
because we all played so many 
limes with and against each 
other. So 1 have to believe that 


their footsteps. 

"Gillian. however, lived and 
slept golf for five years before 
she turned professional. I am 
only now beginning to dedicate 
myself to that land of life so I 
might require more time.” 

Mrs Gamer, aged 28. has 
arrived among the professional 
ranks later rather than sooner 
simply because geographical 
reasons made it financially diffi- 
cult for her to plan such a career. 
She has moved from her North- 
ern Ireland home to 
W'hitchurch, in Shropshire, 
where John Gamer, the former 
Ryder Cup player wham she 
married, has a golf school at the 
Hill Valley Country Club. 

‘‘It will make commuting to 
tournaments a lot easier than if I 


had still been living in 
Ponsiewan.” Mrs Gamer said. 
"I actually decided io turn 
professional last August but I 
did not make the change-over 
until one month ago when I 
secured sponsorship from Tipp- 
Ex. I played in a pro-am last 
week and I earned £300. which 
is equivalent to whai I used to be 
paid forabout a couple of weeks' 
work. 

“That is not to say it's going to 
be easy to earn money out here. 
! know it won't be. But I am 
looking forward to ihe challenge 
without selling myself financial 
targets- 1 am convinced that the 
way to make a success of this 
career is to think solely in terms 
of scoring well and I wifi be 
looking ai par figures initially 

Miss Siewari and Muriel 
Thomson, who was beaten in a 
play-off, were the only players to 


r 'Tmi 


last year. The Woburn course is 
in better condition than 1 2 
months ago 

That being said, the scoring 
could be tower and Laura 
Davies, the leading player in the 
Ring and Brxmer order of merit 
last year with £21,736, will leave 
her driver in the bag some of the 
time to try to carve a successful 
path along the tree-lined fair- 
ways. “I finished down the field 
here last year and that was 
because I lacked ihe experience 
to harness my power.” she said- 

The standard of play on ihe 
WPGA circuit has improved by 
such a degree that the support 
from sponsors has increased to 
give the players a total of 
£750.000 for which to play this 
season. 


SPEEDWAY 


England are confident 
of turning the tables 


By Keith Macklin 


There will be no repeal this 
season of last season's virtual 
whitewash inflicted by Den- 
mark in international com- 
petition and by Danish riders in 
British speedway. 

Eric Boocock, co-manager of 
the England team which starts a 
five-match series against the 
Danes this weekend, says: “The 
Danes were the best in the world 
last season, and were under- 
standably cocky about it. but 
England have a strengthened 
learn. Last season Kenny 
Carters injury in the last inter- 
national turned the tide. This 
time, with Simon Wigg back 
afier his suspension problems, 
we know we can do it.” 

Notwithstanding this appar- 
ent confidence, il will be diffi- 
cult for England to defeat the 
Danes who last year won the 
international series 2-1. and 
elsewhere swept the board. Erik 
Gundersen won the world 
championship and die British 
League riders' championship. 
Gundersen and Tommy Knud- 
sen won the world pairs title, 
and io cap it ail. Denmark won 
the world team cup. Hans 
Nielsen spearheaded Oxford to 
a series of triumphs in domestic 
competitions and won the 
Golden Helm cl His total of 626 
poinislefi him nearly 100 points 
ahead of his nearest rivals. 


Yet ihere are sound reasons 
for hoping and believing that 
England can win. The first 
international takes place at 
Cradley Heath on Saturday and 
the remaining matches wifi be at 
Belle Vue, Wolverhampton, 
Bradford and Oxford. Herein 
lies the slightly Machiavellian 
thinking by England which 
could swing the series towards 
the home nders. regardless of 
individual and team skills. 

The Danes are much more at 
home on small tracks than on 
big ones. Bradford and Belle 
Vue are not to their liking and 
only Oxford will find the Danish 
riders totally at home. A further 
complication for the Danes is 
that they dislike riding bikes 
with the ‘new Czech-originaied 
tyres which have been in- 
troduced into English speedway 
this season. 

England are looking for an 
outstanding lead from W'igg. 
their captain, and a confident 
performance from the Belle Vue 
rider, Chris Morton. 

There is new sponsorship for 
England. Sunbnte. who spon- 
sored ihe world individual 
championship last year, have 
put their money behind the 
international squad and En- 
gland will scorch from the 
starting gate as the Sunbnte 
Lions.

Best came along. 

Another whose ambitions 
this year have already been 
partly dashed because of knee 
problems is Hamilton, who 
had to sit out Oxford United's 
moment of glory at Wembley 
last week. Though selected by 
Bingham he must still prove 
his fitness between now and 
the deadline of May 23. 

The Irish have been fortu- 
nate to discover Quinn and 
Clarke, both good headers like 
Hamilton, within the last 12 
months, but they will miss 
Hamilton's aggression. Wor- 
thington and Jimmy Nicholl. 
others troubled by injury, are 
both reported to be on the 
mend. 

The least known of 
Bingham's squad is Philip 
Hughes, of Bury, who was 
nominated as third goalkeep- 
er. Bingham said of 21-year- 
old Hughes: “He's the young 
pretender.” Unlike England 
and Scotland there will be few 
players disappointed at -being

ATHLETICS 



At 33, Moorcroft knows his chances of being No 1 again are limited. 

Moorcroft sees humorous 
side to his gold quest 


runners, w ho form the backbone 
of the sport aad who can be 
relied upon to bring a healthy 
cynicism to any aspect of it that 
is less than genuine. 

Moorcroft ‘‘failed'* to take 
three minutes off the course 
record, which he holds with 
24min 27 sec. But he pronounced 
himself well pleased with his 
25min 16sec which took his 
Coventry club np from 23rd to 
eighth on the fifth lap. 


Two years of injuries, and a 
last place in the Olympic 5.000 
metres final for the then world 
record holder, have not dimin- 
ished Dave Moorcroft's sense of 
bum oar. 

Trying to contact him last 
Friday about his “comeback 
race” in the national road relay 
the following day. be left a 
message on my-- telephone 
answering machine: “If it's 
about the race. I'm hoping to ran 
well, I expect to break the coarse 
record by about three minutes, _ 
then go on to set three or fonr | , aS T flttCUlpt 
world records this season and r 

win a couple of gold medals. 1 1 ■ ■ 

Sorry to be so non-commhtaL-** 

The irony, for those who have 
not heard Moorcroft's careful 
assessments of hb peers while 
“filling in'* for radio or television 
-during fus enforced lay-off. was 
not the sehd-up of hyperbolical 
journalistic .expectations, but 
that be is one of the most modest 
men in athletics. . . 

Stove Harris, Britain's cur- 
rent “kfog of. the roads”, who 
had- to withdraw from 
Saturday's relay with a slight 
injury, welcomed Moorcroft's 
return with: “It's good to see him 
back. He's such an unassuming 
bloke. He's one of the greatest 
ambassadors athletics could 
have.” 

And that appreciation was 
underlined by the spontaneous 
burst of applause which greeted 
Moorcroft -as be went to the 
starting line on Saturday. For it 
came from the assembled dub 


The pelvic injury which 
caused most of his problems in 
the last two years, indnding the 
Olympic final, was operated on 
last summer, and has completely 
healed. But Moorcroft admits 
that at 33 years of age this is 
probably his last attempt “to get 
back into competition with the 
very best- I'm prepared to give a 
year of hard work, and if 1 don't 
make it, then m just drift 
merrily along running in dub 
races." 

The “three or four world 
records” may.he.as much outside 
his compass now as that course 
record , in Birm ing h am 's Sutton 
Park, especially so since Said 
Aouita, the Moroccan who 
shaved a hundredth of a second 
off b is 5,000 metres world record 
last year, is likely to make more 
substantial inroads this season. 
But the “couple of gold medals”, 
a reference to this summer's 


Commonwealth Games and 
European Championships, are 
more reasonable objectives. 

“Having won two Common- 
wealth golds and two European 
bronzes (1,500 metres in 1978. 
5,000 metres in 1982), ( fed I've 
got more to prove in the Europe- 
ans. I've got to be realistic. 
Saturday's time doesn't even 
equate to qualifying, which I'd 
be more than happy to do for 
either champions hip, because 
that's what's still the -most 
important" 

The selections for the 
Commonwealth Games in late 
July, a month before the Euro- 
pean Championships, will be 
made following the, AAA 
Championships on Joe 20 to 
21, where Moorcroft hopes to 
run the 5,000 metres. In the 
meantime, it is terfc to the 
training track, .“for the next 
month, with perhapsa fifde mile 
race somewhere abroad before 
the AAA".' : 

- He still nurtures a sense that 
he Id everyone dowwby going tn 
the Olympics less than 100 per, 
cent fit- “The selectors held 
faith, and we didn't mislead 
anybody. It was worth a gamble. 
Bat I'm not going to com prom ise 
again. If I'm not fit, I won't ran. 
Personal * achievement conies 
first. I want to get under 13min 
30sec for 5,000 metres, aad then 
try to get under 13:20 again. 
That would restore some per- 
sonal pride."

RUGBY UNION 


Scottish call depletes Kelso 


By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


Kelso will be severely depleted 
when they appear in the finals of 
the Middlesex Sevens on Sat- 
urday. They have five players 
with Scotland's touring team 
who play Spain in Barcelona 
tomorrow before going on to 
four games against French re- 
gional teams over the next 

fortnight. 

Cramb. the Harlequins stand- 
otThalf. plays against Spain in a 
party somewhat affected by 
withdrawals, the latest of them 
last weekend when Eric Paxton 
replaced Finlay Caldcr. How- 
ever. both back row players 
hope to be fit in lime lo join the 
Scottish team which will take 
part in the Sportaid Inter- 
national Sevens in Cardiff on 
May 16 to 1 7. 

Four countries -have- an- 
nounced teams for that event 


New Zealand include four mem- 
bers of the team that won the 
New South Wales Sevens and 
will graft on the exciting skills of 
Kirwan. the Auckland wing; 
Australia include Campese and 
Glen Ella while England, cap- 
tained by Cusworth. have two of 
the biggest wings in the<Buniry. 
Trick (Bath) and Evans (Leices- 
ter). in (heir squad. The other 
four competing teams come 
from Wales. Ireland. France and 
a Rest of the World side. 

Brian Ashton, England's 
assistant coach, will not be able 
to accompany the England B 
team to Italy next week. He is 
unable to get lime away from his 
school duties at Stonyhurst 
College but the party will re- 
main well served by Des 
Sea brook, their coach, and by 
-Martin Green, the national coa- 
ch. who hopes to be available.

Andries will go all out in 
his quest for the world 



The classic boxing confronta- 
tion should unfold when the 
fighter-boxer, Dennis Andries, 
of Britain, meets the boxer-

United States, the World Boxing 
Council light-heavyweight 
champion, at Pickens Lock,' 
Edmonton. North London to- 
night: the 5ft Min Andries 
trying to land bombs as the 6ft 
2in former Marine tries to pick 
him off with sharp bums of jabs 
and hooks, especially to the

Neither side will have fo go 
looking for the other, though the 
American's more sophisticated 
defence system and footwork 
could pose a few problems for 
the shorter man. Unless 

Williamson uncharacteristically

SQUASH RACKETS 

S Africans 
snubbed 
by Devoy 

By Paul Martin 

Susan Devoy, the New Zea- 
lander who last week won her 
third successive British Open 
title, has turned down offers to 
play in South Africa. As world 
champion, she feels she would 
run into the sort of political row 
which now surrounds those of 
her countrymen who are in- 
volved in the latest 'rebel* rugby 
tour. 

Owen Eraslie, the South Af- 
rican squash promoter, had 
been wooing Miss Devoy 
assiduously during the Open, 
but according to her coach, 
Bryce Taylor, she had re- 
sponded with a “flat no”, de- 
spite an attractive though "not 
astronomical" financial 
inducement. ' 

Devoy. appointed an honor- 
ary New Zealand sports ambas- 
sador and awarded an MBE, 
feels she would lose esteem, and 
sponsorship, in New Zealand, 
and might even -provoke 
demonstrations at next year’s 
world championships in Auck- 
land if she was to accept the 
offer. 

The South Africans did not, 
however, leave Britain totally 
empty handed. When Emslie 
flew home Jast .week he bad 
secured South Africa's position 
in world squash through a 
carefully prepared campaign. 
Using 14 proxy votes from 
absent South African players, be 
ensured that the Men's Squash 
Players’ Association (MSPA) 
reinstated South African tour- 
naments in the grand prix ladder 
■ A substantial majority had 
voted late last year, during the 
world championships in Egypt 
(where South Africans were 
denied entry), for tiie tour- 
nament to lose their points 
ratings. 

So important did the South 
Africans consider the move that 
Eddie Barlow, the former 
Derbyshire and South African 
cricketer who now runs South 
Africa's Sports Office in Lon- 
don, interrupted a working visit 
to South Africa, and flew back to 
England to assist Emslie. 

The president of the MSPA,' 
Stuart Davenport of New Zea- 
land, the world No 3, said 
Emslie' s proxy votes bad “prob- 
ably swung it”. 

■Hie South Africans have 
made it clear they are deter- 
mined to fight sporting isolation 
on all fronts, and their attempt 
to persuade Miss Devoy to visit 
their country may not have 
foiled completely. As she 
reaches the twilight of her career 
(she is considering retiring 
young), the offers will become 
increasingly tempting, accord- 
ing to her coach. “Money talks 
eventually,” he said. 


good and in his amateur career 
he appears to have feilen just 
short of the standard expected of 
champions. 

Williamson won the Amateur 
Athletic Union (AAU) title in 
1976 at middleweight but foiled 
to get a place in the brilliant 
American Olympic team at 
Montreal He won the title again 
in 1978 but still did not make 
the team foe the 1 980 Olympics. 
He was beaten in the quarter- 
finals of tbe 1979 Golden 
Gloves by Tony Ayala and then 
failed in the AAU champion- 
ships. being beaten by Alex 
Ramos. 

Williamson then entered the 
Pan American Games but came 
up against the tough Cuban, 
Jos& Gomez, in the first series 
and was well outpointed. He 
joined the professional ranks 
but there, too, was unable to 
challenge for the title until 
Michael Spinks, the undisputed 
world champion, bad moved 
up. He beat Prince Mama 
Mohammed, of Ghana, more a 
stylist than a fighter, to win the 
vacant World Boxing Council 
title. 

Williamson makes much of 
his victory over Pete McIntyre, 
a British fighter. But from all 
accounts McIntyre was ahead 
but fell behind in the last three 
rounds on account of losing 


sparring session with Milton 
McCroiy. the former world 
welterweight champion. 

All ihis. of course, greatlv 
encourages Andries to get 
in. His manager. Greg Stecnc, 
says that Andries has learned 
from his draw with the 6n 5in 
Alex Blanchard, of The Nether- 
lands. the European champion, 
that it is best not to leave things 
to the judges. 

"He won't be fiddling about 
this time”. Sieene said yes- 
terday. "He will get to him early 
and I think he will stop him 
halfway through”. Sieene 
added: "They are all tipping 
Williamson now because be is 
the champion”. But be revealed 
that last year, before Williamson 
was champion, he had planned 
to bring him over as an oppo- 
nent for Andries. “Who would 
have tipped Williamson then. 

Sieene claimed that Andries 
had prepared belter for tins 
contest than any other and had 
sparred with light-heavyweights 
and middle-weights for speed. 
Andries also had the advice of 
John Cornell, the former world 
light-heavyweight champion, 
and was looking forward to 
bringing the title back to Britain 
after nine years. Contch. who 
had been granted his seconds 
licence on Sunday, will be in 
Andries's corner to bolster him

"Life and Reminiscences of 
Robert Abel in the Cricket Field" 
told by himseIC and edited by 
H.V. Dorey. Paper covers 6d. 
Cloth boards l/6dL Cricket and 
sports Publishers. London, 
1910. 

This book, apart from its 
intrinsic merits, which are not 
negligible, is interesting because 
it is an early example of open 
and therefore forgivable) 
"ghosting” by a professional 
journalist: and also of sponsor- 
ship. The sp onsor s were the 
makers of NU VTHE of Norwich. 
The cover of the book is 
emblazoned with slogans: 
“DON'T ENVY THE POS- 
SESSOR OF PHYSICAL 
HEALTH - TAKE NUVITE 
AND ENJOY ITT; “NUVITE 
THE GIVER OF NEW LIFE 
OVERCOMES ALL 

WEAKNESSES''; “WHY 
NEWCASTLE WON THE EN- 
GLISH CUP - see page 72”. 


Pleasing touches 


So you turn to page 72. where 
you learn, purportedly from. 
Abel himself in the text, that 
Newcastle United, victors over 
Barnsley, “had trained exclu- 
sively on Nuvite for the English 
Cup ties". 

Since Nuvite was “THE 
IDEAL NEW WINE FOOD” 
the word “exclusively" may be 
pitching it a bit high (were there 
no steaks and beet?) but the gist 
of the message is confirmed by a 
facsimile ofa telegram from ibe 
Newcastle manager, “Thanks to 
Nuvite we have won the cup" 
(It took a little time to work: 
only in a replay did Barnsley, a 
second division side. lose. 24)). 

Nuvite. with its proclaimed 
conquest over nerves, came too 
late for Bobby Abel's own 
cricketing career, which was a 
pity, because he was thought to 
have a weakness against the 
fastest bowlers. John Shuter. his 
Surrey captain, says as much in 
his introduction lo the book. 

Abel played in 13 Tests, II 
against Australia, between 1888 
and 1 902. He scored 744 runs at 
an average of 37, very high for 
the' time. He toured Australia 
twice, the first a muddle when 
two sides were visiting it at the 
same time, the second under 
Grace in 1891-2. 

At Sydney in 1892 he carried 
his bat through the innings, 
something no other English 
batsman was to do until Hutton, 
in I9SI. In all first-class cricket, 
from 1881 to 1904. he scored 
more than 33.000 runs, average 
35. with 74 centuries (another 


happily described. And W.G. 
Grace, with whom he opened a 
Test innings on several occa- 
sions. used to refer to him as 
“Father". This was because one 
of Abel's boys came to the Oval 
one day. and asked “Is father 
here?" W.G. never tired of a 
simple joke, especially if it were 
his own, and Abel was “Father", 
with an accompaniment of high- 
pitched laughter, thenceforth. 

By the Surrey public he was 
nicknamed “The Guv'nor”. 
which arose less' from any 
natural gubernatorial authority 
than in the cocky, indeed Cock- 
ney perkiness with which he 
went about his business. He was 
a special hero at the Oval, their 
very own in a way which his . 
successors, the great Hayward P 
and the greater Hobbs — both 
Cambridgeshire men — never 
quite were. After his retirement 
be ran a bat sbop at the Oval, 
and was coach at Dulwich 
College. H.S. AJtham gave us 
this affectionate picture of him: 

“Who that has ever seen it can 
forget that curious little figure, 
surmounted almost invariably 
by a somewhat faded and 
shrunken chocolate cap, the 
slow, half-waddling gait that 
marked its progress to the 
wicket the upright yet appar- 
ently rather limb-tied stance, 
and then the wonderful mastery 
over even type of bowling, 
except perhaps the very fast and 
very slow, and the inexhaustible 
patience that made the century 
only a mark to reach and leave 
behind?" . , 

Against that we may set Abel's J* 
own account a glimpse of an 
elsewhere- unchronicled mo- 
ment in cricketing history: “One 
afternoon last July, when Mr 
Crawford's refusal to lead the 
Surrey XI into the field against 
the Australians was the sole 
topic of conversation on and 
about the Oval, a friend walked 
into my shop to say ‘How d'ye 
do?* My eyes were troubling me, 
and were seriously affecting my 
work as coach at Dulwich 
College. 

Medical discovery 

“This I naturally told him. 
With my friend was Mr. F.E. 
Palmer, a chemist and physiolo- 
gist of Norwich. 

This gentleman at once ^ 
convincingly said. 'I will put 
your eyes right’ handing me a 
boule of his recent medical 
discovery, Nuvite, and request- 
ing me to try iL 




“Nalurally sceptical. L how- 
, . . i ver * decided to give it a trial, 

large number for the time) He* Feeling that 1 had really derived 

immense benefit from it I 


also took 263 wickets with little 
off-breaks, and caught 58S 
catches, mostly at slip. He was 
not one of your tail slips — only 
5ft 4in — but like Hendren, kept 
bobbing up unexpectedly and 
missed very little within reach. 
In six consecutive seasons he 
scored more than 2,000 runs, in 
1901 more than 3,000. His 3S7 
against Somerset in 1899 was 
then the second-highest score in 
first-class cricket Boyhood days 
on Southwark Common are 


continued the treatment and 
today I feel that 1 have, to a great 
extent benefilted in my general 
health and regained that steadi- 
ness of nerve absolutely nec- 
essary in the cricket field." 

. WelL there you are: the truth 
behind the scorecards. But what 
has happened to Nuvite? Docs it 
St.ll produce its elixir in Nor- 
Wich? IT so. a supply Should 

should have been despatched 10

pressure 
intensifies 


\ 




est Ham United can 
,ke certain of at least third 
ice in the first division by 
aiing Ipswich Town at Up- 
n Park tonight, thus com- 
pleting four successive home 
wins in 10 days and keeping 
the pressure on the two teams 
in front of them, Liverpool 
and Everton. Their manager, 
John LyaJl. sai±‘Tt‘s great 
that we are taking it all the way 
to the finish." 

West Ham have only one 
worry afier Monday's hard 
earned win over Manchester 
City — Ward, an ever present 
this season, finished the game 
with a slight groin strain. Lyalf 
admits his players are tired 
after a long hard season "but 
so are all the other teams, and 
when you are winning you 
don't notice being tired." he 
said. 

“We have already achieved 
the target we set ourselves this 
season of finishing higher than 
any West Ham side has ever 
done before in division one. 
which is a great credit to the 
lads. Now we simply have to 
seek to win our remaining 
games and hope that Liver- 
pool and Everton slip up. 
Manchester City made it hard 
for us. They were the third 
side of the last four we have 
beaten to use a sweeper, which 
is a mark of respect to us." 
Stewart's first-half penalty 
separated the teams. 

West Ham have beaten 
Ipswich away in both League 
and FA Cup this season, each 
time with an only goal scored 
Cottee. Almost exactly a 
year ago another Conee goal 
gave West Ham a 1-0 win at 


Ipswich, which ended their 
relegation fears. 

Ipswich, still needing three 
points from their last two 
matches to make certain of 
avoiding relegation, will have 
no inferiority complex about 
lonighi's match. Their manag- 
er. Bobby Ferguson, said; "We 
are going there to win. It 
would be nice to gel three 
points because it would pre- 
vent having a nail-biting fin- 
ish at Sheffield Wednesday on 
Saturday." Ipswich have no 
fresh injury worries following 
their injury-time victory over 
Oxford United on Saturday. 

Everton 's title hopes re- 

Nortbem Ireland's 
World Cup squad 
and other football 
Page30 

ceived a lift yesterday when 
Reid and Van den Hauwe 
were included in the party of 
14 for the match at Oxford 
tonight. They have made good 
progress after being injured 
during Saturday's goalless 
draw with Nottingham Forest 
Harper and Richardson are 
added to the squad. 

Oxford's Northern Ireland 
forward. Billy Hamilton, is 
recalled to face Everton. Ham- 
ilton. who is included in 
Ireland's World Cup squad 
after being troubled ail season 
with a knee injury, takes over 
from Charles, who suffered a 
recurrence of a groin strain 
against Ipswich. 

The 3-2 defeat left Oxford in 
deep relegation trouble and 
their manager. Maurice Ev- 


ans. has set of a target of seven 
points from the remaining 
three home games to stay in 
the first division. He said: 
"We were killed off by two 
diabolical decisions by referee 
Tony Holbrook, which cost 
two goals after playing weft 
enough to deserve a win and it 
will make the players more 
determined tomorrow. They 
know they cannot afford an- 
other defeat" 

The League leaden, Liver- 
pool. have an injury woiry for 
tonight's visit to Leicester 
City. Johnston is suffering 
from a painful back which 
makes him a doubtful starter 
and he will have a late fitness 
tesL Rush has also had treat- 
ment fora back injury but is 
likely to play. 

The Liverpool player-man- 
ager, Kenny Dalglish, takes a 
squad of 15 with Walsh. Lee 
and McMahon added to the 
dozen who were on duty in 
Saturday's 5-0 defeat of Bir- 
mingham City. 

Leicester's manager, Gor- 
don Milne, says that tonight's 
match is as important as a cup 
final. The former England 
winger. Laurie Cunningham, 
is likely to play, as Leicester 
attempt to avoid relegation. 
Cunningham will probably 
lake over from Lynex, who is 
suspended. 

Smith is still doubtfuL He 
has been under intensive 
treatment for 10 days for a 
knee injury and Milne said 
yesterday: "I am keeping my 
fingers crossed, but will not be 
able to say whether Smith will 
be in until the very last 
minute." 


Luton card plan to Argentina 
ban visiting fans 


Luton Town yesterday un- 
veiled their plans to ban 
spectators of visiting clubs 
from Kenilworth Road next 
season. 

All supporters who want to 
watch Luton's games will first 
have to buy a membership 
card costing £1. The cards, 
incorporatiig a magnetic code, 
will have to be passed through 
a security scanner in a 
compntercontrolled turnstile 
system. 

The equipment is costing 
Loton £250,000 and David 
Evans, the dab's chairman, 
said at a press conference that 
the scheme has the backing of 
the Prime Minister, the gov- 
ernment. police, local councils 
and residents. Luton first con- 
sidered banning away support- 
ers after MUwall Cans caused 
£25,000 worth of damage in 
and around the ground during 
a FA Cup-tie last season. 

They already ban visiting 
supporters from all seated 
areas and chief executive John 
Smith said that the dob would 
ask the Football Association 
and the Football League to 
allow the ban to operate in 
cup-ties as well as League 
games. An existing FA rule 


states that visiting clubs 
should be given 25 per cent of 
the capacity for cup-ties, hot a 
request wQJ be made at an FA 
meeting on May 13 to giant 
Luton exemption from that 
regulation. 

Smith said that if the rale 
was not waived for Loton, they 
would deckle whether to play 
FA and League Cup ties on 
opponents' or neutral grounds, 
or withdraw from the cup 
competitions. Under the com- 
puterized turnstile system, the 
turnstile will reject any card 
which is stolen or reported as 
being blacklisted by the dub. 

Luton hope to sell up to 

30.000 cards to home support- 
ers and believe that more local 
people wQl go to their first 
division matches once they 
know there cannot be trouble 
involving rival supporters. 
Those who boy the cards win 
also be asked to sign a promise 
of good behaviour. 

Loton have an average of 

1.000 visiting fans per month, 
despite a deliberate policy of 
charging high admission 
charges for them. The dob 
says that by banning away 
supporters, its police bills can 
be reduced. 


going 
for a rout 

Oslo (Reuter) — Argentina 
take on Norway today anxious 
to find their goal touch and 
quash suggestions that their 
manager, Carlos Bilardo, has 
assembled a defensive squad 
for next month’s World Cup. 

He has been criticised for 
switching the emphasis from 
the sweeping, attacking moves 
employed by his predecessor, 
Cesar Luis Menotti, which 
took Argentina to victory in 
the 1978 finals. 

Bilardo wants his team to 
rout Norway in today's match 
at the Ulleval Stadium to 
make amends for the recent 2- 
0 defeat by France and prove 
his side is no more defensive 
than in previous yean. The 
Argentinians, with their cap- 
lain Diego Maradona due in 
from Italy, rehearsed the full 
range of their attacking moves 
during a hard training session. 
They should have no problem 
disposing of the Norwegians, 
although the mixture of local 
amateurs and exiled profes- 
sionals caused a major upset 
last year by beating World 
Cup holders Italy. 

Argentina travel to Israel for 
another warm-up match 


SNOOKER 


Davis break clears the way 


There are few belter ways to 
start a quarter-final of the 
Embassy Snooker Champion- 
ship at Sheffield than by- 
making a splendid clearance 
break of 134. This work of art 
was accomplished yesterday 
by Steve Davis against Jimmy 
White to surpass the previous 
highest break of 121 compiled 
by White himself. 

'On his third visit to the 
table, having already scored 
four points, Davis cut a short 
red into a side pocket at the 
lop of ihe table. There was 
little indication then of what 
was in store - a total of 14 reds, 
eleven blacks, one pink, two 
blues and all the colours,- 
despatched readily with su- 
perb control. 

While, who conceded the 
second frame on the brown, 
decided it was time to do 
something and he responded 
with a sparkling break of 84. 
only to run into trouble in the 
next frame after making a 
break of 41. Having escaped 
from a snooker on the yellow 
he found there was an in-offat 
the end of it and Davis won 


By Sydney Frisian 

the frame to go 3-1 ahead. He 
returned from the interval to 
increase his lead to 4-1 but 
White was back in the match 
al 5-3 and there should be a 
few more thrills before it is 
completed tonight. 

Tony Knowles, maintaining 
ihe fluency he had acquired 
against Silvino Francisco on 
Monday night, gained early 
ascendancy over Kirk Ste- 
vens. of Canada. Successive 
breaks of 48. 46 and 55 look 
Knowles into a 3-0 led, but an 
attractive break of 74 by 
Stevens enabled him to cut the 
lead to 3-1. Knowles increased 
his lead to 4-1 though Stevens 
came back sharply with a 
break of 54 to reduce the lead 
to 4-1 

Cliff Thorbum. of Canada, 
became stronger and stronger 
once he found his rhythm 
against Willie Thome and 
built himself a fortress in the 
form of a 6-2 lead. The 
Canadian won the first three 
frames without trouble, estab- 
lished a lead of 4-1 with a 
clearance of 36, and extended 
it to 6-1 with a break of 70. 


Thome's best effort was a 
clearance of 83 in the fourth 
frame and he gained some 
respectability by reducing the 
lead to 6-2 with a break of 46. 

Terry Griffiths, usually a 
slow starter, lost the first three 
frames to Joe Johnson, of 
Bradford, but kept in touch at 
the end of the morning's play 
by reducing Johnson’s lead to 
5-3.

Middlesex fail to force 
home the advantage 


LORD'S: Middlesex ( 7ptsj 
drew with Derbyshire (3). 

Middlesex, whose close 
catching let them down, were 
unable to make Derbyshire 
follow on yesterday and from 
12.30 onwards the match was 
allowed to drift to an unsatis- 
factory draw. A slow, docile 
pitch, and the loss of four 
hours' play on Saturday, com- 
bined to blunt the ambitions 
of both teams. 

Derbyshire resumed need- 
ing a further 98 runs to avoid 
the follow-on. They had seven 
wickets in hand, including 
that of Miller, who had influ- 
enza and would only bat if 
necessary. In the first half 
hour Finney, the night watch- 
man, was twice dropped in the 
slips off Williams before he 
reached double figures. 

These mistakes dashed any 
hope Middlesex held of break- 
ing through. The score was 92 
before Cowans bowled 
Finney, but Morris continued 
to drive stylishly and hit seven 


By Richard Streeton 

fours before Daniel bowled 
him with a yorker. 

Roberts, however, was firm 
as a rock and Newman, whose 
batting improved so much last 
year, also looked sound when 
Edmonds and Emburey 
bowled. These two were still 
together at lunch when 67 
overs remained and the in- 
nings lasted another 55 min- 
utes after the interval. 

The outstanding catches 
were taken by Emburey at slip 
and Edmonds in the gulley. to 
dismiss Newman and Rob- 
erts. Holding brought Derby- 
shire a second batting point 
but inevitably, it was all 
ratheracademic. In retrospect, 
Middlesex, perhaps, batted 
too long 'on Monday for 
Derbyshire to feel it necessary 
to make any gestures. 

There was the aesthetic 
pleasure of watching Holding 
bowl in the final two hours 
and he soon had Slack leg 
before with a ball that kept 
low. Barlow and Butcher 
played some attractive strokes 


towards the end, before Butch- 
er was bowled round his Tegs, 
trying to sweep in Barnett's 
final over.

The prize money for this 
season's major cricket compe- 
litions rose to almost 
£328,000 yesterday when 
£4.000 was added to the 
NatWest Trophy cash awards. 

The winners of the final at 
Lord's in September will re- 
ceive £19,000, compared with 
the £1 7.000 Essex collected, for 
pipping Nottinghamshire 
There is £82.400 on offer in 
.the Benson and Hedges Cup 
and £73,300 in the John 
Player Special League while 
£63,000 is the Britannic As- 
surance injection into the 
county championship. 

England's cricketers can 
seek some solace after their 
troubled tour of the West 
Indies by pursuing the £40,300 
from the Test sponsors, 
Comhili, and the £17,400 put 
up by Texaco for the four one- 
day internationals. 


FENNERS: Cambridge Uni- 
versity drew with 
Northamptonshire. 

A century from the North- 
amptonshire all-rounder, 
Duncan Wild, and a stubborn, 
match-saving second innings 
from Cambridge University 
were theJeatures of the last 
day’s play at Fenner's^ 
yesterday. 

Wild batted 1 32 minutes for 
his 101, receiving 124 balls 
and hilling 14 fours and a six. 
He held the county's second 
innings together almost until 
they declared at 203 for seven 
at lunch. 303 runs ahead, after 
starting the day on 81 for two. 

Cambridge faced a possible 
four hours, in which to score 
at 73 an hour or to save the 
match, and they got off to 
their best start of the season, 
47 runs coming from the 
openers Bail and Ahluwalia.

metre lead over the pack. 
Robert Millar, of Scotland, 
retained the overall lead. 

“It was a fairly easy win.” 
Planckaert said. “I pulled

SPORT !N BRIEF 


Simmons 
ponders 
his future 

Jack Simmons, the 45-year- 
old Lancashire vice-captain, 
was considering his future 
yesterday after being left out 
of the side for the first two 
Britannic Assurance county 
cricket championship matches 
of the season. Simmons ex- 
pected to captain the team for 
the first match at Hove in the 
absence of Clive Lloyd but 
found himself on the sidelines 
as Lancashire earned a 24- 
poiut win over Sussex. 

The Lancashire manager. 
Jack Bond, said yesterday: “I 
see no reason to change things 
for tomorrow's match with 
Leicestershire. I can under- 
stand why Jade is disappoint- 
ed but I can assure him he still 
has a big part to play at Old 
Trafford.'' 

With Lloyd likely to be kept 
out again by Lancashire's 
other overseas player, Patrick 
Patterson, the fast bowler, 
their opening batsman. 
Graeme Fowler, will remain 
in charge today. 

Simmons said: *T just 
laughed when they told me I 
was out I thought they were 
joking. I won't retire because I 
won't be beaten but I will have 
to do some thinking about the 
future." Simmons, who has 
been al Old Trafford for 18 
years, has come under pres- 
sure from Mike Watkinson, 
the young seam bowler con- 
verted into an off-spinner, 
who took five wickets at 
Hove. 

Two players who came face 
to fare during England’s disas- 
trous tour of the West Indies. 
Allan Lamb, the England bats- 
man, and Roger Harper, the 
West Indian spinner, make 
their first appearances of the 
season for Northamptonshire 
when the county open their 
championship campaign 
against Kent at Canterbury 

The off-spinner, Chris Dale, 
and the all-rounder. Chris 
Penn, are included in a squad 
of 13 from which Kent will 
select their side. 

Paul Bakker, a 27-year-old 
Dutchman, may make his 
first-class debut for Hamp- 
shire in the match against 
Glamorgan at Southampton. 



Going to dogs 


Brain scan 
proposal 

British-based boxing cham- 
pions and contenders for titles 
are likely to be ordered to 
undergo regular brain scans. 

The move, designed to im- 
prove safety in the sport, 
seems certain to be passed at 
the British Boxing Board of 
Control's annual meeting on 
May 21. 

The proposed change calls 
for any boxer involved in 
world. European. British or 
Commonwealth title contests 
or eliminators, and area cham- 
pionships, to have scans be- 
fore bouts. 

New course 

A £5 million plan to build a 
championship golf course 
near St Andrews has been 
proposed. The development, 
which would include a 100- 
bedroom hotel and a luxury 
sports complex, is to be locat- 
ed on 300 acres in Leuchars. 

Old warrior 

Havana (Reuter) - The 
winner of three Olympic gold 

aged 34. has been included in a Bristol leader French foes 

Cuban team to take part in the 
World Amateur boxing cham- 
pionships in Reno. Nevada, 
from May 8 to 16. He has lost 
three bouts in the past six 
months. 


Grimace; Yannick Noah, of 
France, was irritated by a 
line judge during his 6-3, 6-7, 
6-3 defeat by Boris Becker in 
Kiel on Monday 

Blyth backed 

Round-the-world yachts- 
man. Chay Blyth, has enlisted 
the backing of. Silk Cut in 
organizing Britain’s first ma- 
jor. sponsored inshore 24- 
hour race for ocean-going 
multi-hull yachts. The race 
will start off Brighton on 
October 4 and finish at Tower 
Bridge. 


Nigel Pomphrey, aged 30. 
will be the captain of Bristol 
rugby club next season. His 
deputy will be the scrum half 
Richard Harding. 


Chelsea are negotiating to 
bring greyhound racing back 
to Stamford Bridge after an 
absence of almost 20 years. 
Plans are reported to include a 
three-year project involving 
nearly £1 million. A track 
would be laid round the 
outside of the football pitch 
with Chelsea providing ac- 
commodation for punters in 
executive boxes. 

Libya reaction 

Mark Curp. of the United 
States, who holds the world's 
best lime of 60min 55sec for a 
half marathon, has withdrawn 
from the Gaymer’s Okie En- 
glish road race series next 
month because of the political 
unrest over Libya. His place 
will be taken by the American- 
based Kenyan, Simeon Kigen. 

Record entry

31 countries have entered the 
European athletics champion- 
ships which will take place in

day. Albania, Gibraltar and 
Monaco did not enter teams.

Changes 
will be 
good for 

the rest 

It is the earnest hope of the 
Rigby Football Umon (RFU) ft 
competitions sob-committee . 
that their third bite at a 
distinctly similar cheny «nu 
prove successful. After tire 
refection of the Burgess Re- 
port m 1981, Danie Serfontem 
met with no more success two 
years ago when his committee 
proposed a national merit 
table. Now a fresh look at tire 
structure of tire game bt E»= 
gfam) , which wQl introduce 
integrate! league rugby, has 
been accepted by the RFU 
committee. 

Bin Bishop, the Cornish 
chairman of tire competitions 
committee, hopes the RFU | 
{mural meeting In July will 
accept, rather than debate, his 
presentation of the new En- 
glish dub championship. This 
will involve three national 
divisions, two area divisions 
representing the north and 
sonth, and beneath that four 
divisions representing the ex- 
feting north. Midlands. Lon- 
don and south-west areas. 

The sub-structure may go 
down as Ear as necessary so 
that any ambitions dob may 
have, its chance to climb, the 
whole being designed to oper- 
ate in the 1987-88 season with 
integration completed by 
1989. “During next season we 
hope to have meetings with ail 
interested parties, dubs, coun- 
ties and divisions to put the 
thing over,” Bishop said 
yesterday. 

Automatic 

promotion 


“We need assistance, we can't 
just sit down and plan a great 
mass nationwide. A lot of tire 
work that was done before, by 
John Bnrgess and Danie 
Serfimtem, Is the same, but the 
fthnaiu is a lot better now. 

There are a lot of middle-order 
dubs who want to go some- 
where, dubs who want a fan- 
system and the Cop dobs see 
the need fire a democratic 
society.” 

Eric Smith, of OrreU. a 
member of tire competitions 
committee, said: “It's a most 
exdtin^ prospect because 
there mil be a national thread 
running through the whole 
competitive area of tire game 
with automatic promotion and 
relegation at all stages. If yon 
me good enough yon will get 
there.” 

The national divisions will 
be based on the existing John 
Smith's merit tables, leaving 
the current RFU divisional 
tables with only another sea- 
son of life. It is to be hoped 
that the new structure, incor- 
porating as it will fresh quali- 
fying roles for the John Player 
Special Cup, will do away with 
anomalies which have so fre- 
quently arisen. 

The latest discrepancy in- 
volves the London merit cable, 
won this season by Wasps. 
London Welsh, in eighth 
place, qualified for the first 
round of next season's John 
Player to ornament where?? 
Richmond, one place 
them, go through to the 
round thanks to the MiddL 
Cup — _ whose whiners 
automatically given a 
seeding. 


Pilot 

schemes 


Had Richmond non 
county cup that migbt\u_>» 
been reasonable. But the^ 
were knocked-oot in the semi- 
finals, only to be treated as 
winners because the other 
three semi-finalists, Saracens 
(the winners). Wasps and 
Harlequins, all qualified by 
finishing in tire top six of the 
merit taWe. 


— P -~Jists in 

the Middlesex Cup contest a 
first-round place in the John 
Player, with Mill Hill (who 
beat Uxbridge at the weekend) 
waiting to see which of Grass- 
hoppers or Metropolitan Po- 
lice they must play for the 
vacancy. 

A property managed league 
system is clearly the way 
forward for English rugby 
ralher_ than an amorphous 
collection of merit tables 
which do not lead anywhere.
