The Prime Minister ap- 
peared last night to be heading 
for an almost certain dash 
with Commonwealth leaders 
next week after h was stressed 
that she is determined hot to 
be nished into further sanc- 
tions against South Africa. 

Despite the ‘ conclusion of 
Sir Geoffrey Howe, the For- 
eign and Commonwealth Sec- 
retary. that further measures 
will be necessary after the 
failure of his peace mission to 
southern Africa, it was being 
said after yesterday’s Cabinet 
meeting that Mrs Thatcher is 
ready to give little or nothing 
at the Commonwealth mini- 
summit, which begins in Lon- 
don on -Sunday. 

Whitehall sources said after 
the meeting that the Cabinet 
had reaflkmed its unanimous 
support for the policy of Sir 
Geoffrey and the* Prime Min- 
ister. 

It was an unusual move, 
undoubtedly taken to mask 
the obvious divisions between 
the Foreign Office and Down- 
ing Street about the desirabil- 
ity of further measures against 
South Africa. 

Sir Geoffrey last night de- 
nied as “fanciful and fantas- 
tic" City reports that he in- 
tended to resign over the issue. 

But there were differing 
versions in Whitehall of what 
had been agreed at yesterday’s 
Cabinet meeting, and- there 
was anger amoqg some min- 
isters at suggestions that: the' 


Cabinet was not in the busi- 
ness of imposing further sanc- 
tions. 

This is certainly not the 
view held by Sir Geoffrey and 
several otter ministers. The 
Foreign Secretary said last 
night that unless there was 
substantial progress towards a 
negotiated settlement some 
measures would be necessary. 

It was dear, however, that 
the Government did not want 
to reveal its hand in advance 
of the Commonwealth mini- 
summit and that reports sug- 
REsting that there wtQ. be no. 
farther measures were to be 
taken as an initial bargaining 
position.

dsion to the Queen when she 
stayed at the Palace of Holy- 
roodhouse in Edinburgh, be- 
fore her visit- today to the 
Commonwealth Games. . 

Lady Young, Minister of 
State at the Foreign Office, 
said in the Lords that the 
Government was continuing 
to work for a 
settlement in South 

But she was criticized for 
having foiled to elaborate on 
the Government’s line: She 
said' that foe contideratioQ of 


further measures would be on 
the agenda for the mini- 
summit Yesterday’s meeting 
of the Cabinet’s overseas and 
defence committee, which 
preceded the Cabinet meeting 
and at which the main discus- 
sion took place, had before it a 
paper from the Foreign Office 
examining the various options 
for further measures. 

It is likely that they will 
have come to a judgement on 
what further measures may 
eventually be agreed. There is 
still foreign Office support for 
a ban on air links with South 
Africa, an option with some 
attractions because because it 
would take more than a year 
to implement and could be 
wielded as a threat 

.But it was dear after the 
meeting that Mrs Thatcher 
still holds firmly to regarding 
the deadline for consideration 
of fiirther measures to be late 
September, alien the Euro- 
pean Council reconvenes. 

But some ministers believe 
that the Commonwealth will 
be offered something, how- 
ever small, next week. 

Sir Geoffrey's meetings witfr 
the Prime Minister on Wed- 
nesday, when he returned 
from Pretoria, were dearly 
difficuh. He went into them 
knowing that be would havea 
difficult task to convince Mrs 
Thatcher, butte was reliably 
said to have, been in a grim 
mood afterwards.

- -Seven emergency restric- 
tions on the activities of 119 
organizations imposed to the 
Pretoria Government have 
teen lifted by Brigadier Chris 
Swart, the Divisional Com- 
missioner of Police for the 
Weston Cape. 

Orders tensing black pu- 
pils from being ontride their 
classrooms dsriag school 
boars, and praMbiting foe 
retain to the Crossroads 
squatter camp of those whose 
shacks were destroyed in vi- 
ofence there, were also with- 
drawn. 

In the Eastern Cape, Briga- 
dier Ernest Schneder, its ii~ 
visional cranmissioner, has 
rescinded resfrktioas on vari- 
ons organizations, funerals, 
meetings ami school children 
after Aey were declared null 
and void by the supreme coot. 

Meanwhile, foe Divisional 


Witwatersrand, Brigadier 
JJLP. Bekker, yesterday 
lifted a ten on the bolding of 
funerals for unrest victims in 
Alexandra, a Mack stem on 
foe outskirts of Johannesburg. 

This sodden relaxation of 
emergency restrictions seems 
to have teen precipitated by a 
rating of the supreme court in 
Transvaal last Tuesday that 
the power to issae such orders 
could not be delegated to 
divisional police com- 
missioners. 

On foe face of it, Pretoria 
seems to have been caught out 
on a technicality. 

The courts have shown an 
unexpected independence by 
disputing and amraBing the 
regulations implemented since 
the state of emergency was 
declared on June 12, on the 
grounds that they were un- 
clear, unreasonable or ultra 
rim. 


The Government has suf- 
fered a dramatic loss of sup- 
port in foe wake of foe 
controversy over the alleged 
rift between the Queen and 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher over 
Sorth Africa. 

Labour has shot into a nine- 
point lead since the con- 
troversy surfaced on July 20, ‘ 
according to an opinion poll 
conducted for The Times and 
IpdepeodeRt Television 
News's Chanel. 4 News by 
Market & Opinion Research 

Another big factor m the 
(hop in the Government's 
standing has been growfaqc 
pabik opposition to its, failure 
to taken tougher line ag g in st 
South Africa, the suvey 
found. 

The poll, conducted over the 
past two days, put Labour on 
41 per cent, foie Conservatives 
on 32 ate tire Iiheral/SDP 
Alliance on 25 per cent 

This contrasts sharply with 
foe MORI results published 
in The London Standard on 


Tuesday which showed a sin- 
gle-point Labour lead, with 
Labour at 37 per cent, foe 
Conservatives at 36 per cent 
ate foe SDP-libend Affiance 
on 23 per cent. 

When these resirits are 
separated Into those inter- 
views done before the Palace 
controversy broke and those 
afterwards show that about six

Interviewing done on July 
18 ate 19 showed tire Conser- 
vatives with a 6 per cent lead. 
But it is dear that there were 
special factors at work because 
those interviews were taken 
immediately after foe New- 
castfe-under-Lyme by-election 
which Labour only managed to 
win narrowly, faffing to ftdfil 
general expectations of a 
comfortable victory.

Times of the Queen's alleged

South Africa policy MORI 
gave Labour a 6 per cent lead. 

Interviews, on July 20-22 
giving Labour a 6 per cent lead 
appeared therefore to be 
resuming the trend shown in a 
poll early in the month, giving 
Labour a 5 per cent lead. 

Public dissatisfaction with 
the Government's position on 
South Africa has been growing 
steadily.' • : - . 

In a poll last November 42 
per. ceut thought the 
Government’s policy was not 
tough enough. In May. this 
figure had risen to 46 per cent 
but in foe poll token on 
Wednesday ate yesterday foe 
figure had soared to 56 per 
cent 

• Faced with the question of 
whether they approved of spe- 
cific measures designed to pat 
pressure on the South African 
government, a plurality of 
respondents said they would 
only approve of a mid to new 
investment by British compa- 
nies. A complete ban on trade,- 
air ate sporting links were all 
decisively rejected. 

The message appears to be 
that the public generally want 
tougher action 

Public opinion on tire effi- 
cacy of economic sanctions is 
evenly divided. Forty-six per 
cent believed they would not 
help bring an end to apartheid 
compared with 44 per cent who 
said they would.

Rate rebels lose court fight 


Forty-seven rebel coun- 
cillors in Liverpool, disquali- 
fied from office and ordered to 
pay a £106,103 surcharge for 
delaying setting a rate, lost 
their plea for survival in foe 
Conn of Appeal yesterday. 

Lord Justice Lawton, sitting 
with Lord Justice Dillon and 
Lord Justice Woolf; unani- 
mously upheld foe ruling of 
the Divisional Court in March 
that the councillors were 
guilty of wilful misconduct by 
toiling to set a rate for 1 985-86 
before the government 
deadline. 

The Divisional Court had 
dismissed appeals by foe then 


of the district auditor, 
Thomas McMahon, saying 


that they ted used their 
refusal as a weapon to weaken 
the resistance of the Govern- 
ment and ted disobeyed the 
law foran invalid reason. Two 
of the councillors have since 
died. 

Lord Justice Lawton told 
the packed court that the 
councillors believed that the 
Secretary of State would make 
mote money ^ available to 
avoid “financial chaos" in 
Liverpool. 

He added that it was in- 
conceivable that they could' 
believe foe central 1 govern- 
ment would make more 
money available. 

The councillors claimed 
that they believed they were 
acting within the law. 


Lord Justice Lawton said 
that the feet they were pursu- 
ing a “political objective was 
not a valid excuse for not 
performing their statutory 
duty. 

“They ted all chosen to 
stand together, they all acted 
wreckletey in delaying setting, 
a rate and all were guilty of 
wilful misconduct" 

The councillors were or- 
dered to pay the estimated 
£100,000 costs of the hearing. 
They were given leave to 
appeal to the House of Lords. 

Outside the court Mr Tony 
Mulbeam, former 'Liverpool 
District Labour Party presi- 
dent said; “We are pro- 
foundly despondent at the 
outcome." 


Coe departs as Cram 
and Ovett win gold 

By John Goodbody, Sports News Correspondent 


Steve Cram and Steve Ovett 
won gold medals at the 13th 
Commonwealth Games in Ed- 
inburgh yesterday while their 
great English rival Sebastian 
Coe returned home suffering 
from a throat infection. 

In the absence of Coe, the 
world record holder. Cram 
easily won the 800 metres in ' 
lmin 43.22sec, a UK all com- 
ers record. Tom McKean, of 
Scotland, was second. Cram 
was disappointed that Coe 
was unable to nm in foe final. 
He $ai± “If Seb bad competed 
it would have been a hoDow 
victory over him". 

Ovett, the 1980 Olympic 


800 metres champion, ted his 
first victory in an inter- 
national championship for 
five years at his new distance 
of 5,000 metres. He finished 
ahead of England’s Jack Buck- 
ner. Ovett who collapsed with 
dehydration in the Los An- 
geles Games said afterwards: 
“If I had not won today people 
would have written me off". 

Tessa Sanderson, the Olym- 
pic women's javelin title 
holder, defeated Fatima Whit- 
bread for the first time since 
Los Angeles with a throw of 
59.80 metres-

Power profit 
could mean 
lower prices 

Electricity pices should re- 
main stable or even fell 
following the announcement 
yesterday of a £414 million net 
profit by the Electricity Coun- 
cfl in the year to March 31. 

Sir Philip Jones, chairman, 
said electricity prices ted 
fallen in real terms over foe 
past five years by about 10 per 
cent. 

The new five-year deal to 
buy cheaper coal from British 
Coal offered “immediate and 
long term price advantages" 
for foe industry's 21 million 
customers, he added. 

The council made an 
operating profit of £944. mil-

Ceremonial Rock guard ends 


Ending a tradition 
back to the 1730s, foe 
Government yesterday un- 
expectedly withdrew the cere- 
monial military gsard posted 
at the frontier separating 
Gibraltar from Spain. 

It said that foe post was no 
longer considered appropriate 
between Enropeau Cynsinnnity 
members ate Nato allies. 

Since Spain lifted restric- 
tions in 1985 the sma rt guard 
standing firm in foe summer 
sun by pofished brass cannons 
has been a tourist attraction. 
Under a British flag, his 
gnanffionse is five yards from 
Spanish soft. 

The flag has teen lowered 
and raised as foe guards 


From Dominic Searie, Gibraltar 
changed much tothefesch)a- 
tioo T Spaniards ate admira- 
tion of foe British, but to foe 
Gibraltarians foe move Is 
inevitably anabolic. 

The British had disputed 
the placing of foe frontier with 
Spain since foe Treaty of 
Utrecht fa 1713 ate. mote 
recently General Franco was 
keen to draw a distinction' 
between sovereignty over the 
rity and that of the airport . 
which s ep a rat e s it from foe 
frontier post 

In Gibraltarian eyes a Brit- 
ish guard has always meant a 
firm line is (finding foe 
territory. 

Galled back from his holi- 
day mi the Costa del SoL, Sir 


Joshua Hassan, Chief Min- 
ister of Gibraltar, revealed 
that he had been informed of 
foe move beforehand. 

His only concern lay in foe 
interpretation that might be 

S 'ven locally, particularly if 
e Spanish military guard is 
not similarly withdrawn in a 
reciprocal more. 

Much Ministry of Defence 
late has recently been handed 
over to the Gibraltar Govern- 
ment, the dockyard is no 
longer naval, there are dis- 
cussions over Joint rise of 
Gibraltar airport with Spain. 

AH these to Gibraltarians 
are signs which add to their 
fears that one day foe British 
could leave. .. 


City brings in 
£7.6 billion 
from overseas 

By Our City Staff 

The City earned £7.6 billion 
for the national purse last 
year, 1 1 per cent more than in 
the previous year, the Trea- 
sury said yesterday. 

The figure - for net in- 
visible overseas earnings — 
was 40 per cent higher than in 
1983. 

The performance repre- 
sented well over half the £12 
billion total earned on 
invisibles .by. the private 
sector. 

Bankers have lost their po- 
sition as top earners for the 
City which they won the 
previous year, felling from 23 
billion to £2.1 billion. 


Mass pickets 
banned 
at Wapping 


By Tim Jones 


Mass picketing at Mr Ru- 
pert Murdoch's News Inter* 
national plant at Wapping, 
east London, was banned by 
the High Court yesterday. 

The two main print unions 
were ordered by Mr Justice 
Stuart-Smith to limit to six the 
number of their pickets out- 
side the plant and at other 
premises owned by the 
company. 

The judge made the order 
after stating there was 
“overwhelming evidence" 
that employees who passed 
the pickets and daily dem- 
onstrators were almost invari- 
ably subjected to abuse and 
threats. 

There had been, he said, 
“more sinister behaviour” 
away from the plant. Some 
employees had been assaulted 
on joining or leaving company 
buses at pick-up or dropping- 
off points. 

“Others have been fol- 
lowed, abused, threatened, put 
in fear and molested. Several 
have had their cars vandalized 
at home or ted their houses 
daubed with (he word ‘scab’.” 

He added: “One bad a skip 
with four yards of earth, a 
wreath with the words in 
loving memory of X'. (and 
then his name). Yet others 
have' been rung at night, 
abused and threatened.” 

The judge said that apart 
from six pickets who may 
attend at the gate at Wapping 
for “obtaining or 
communicating" information, 
the defendants may not or- 
ganize pickets or dem- 
onstrators to be stationed in 
any of three roads which skirt 
the plant. 

But he gave the unions the 
right to organize inarches and 
rallies to and at Wapping 
provided they were subjected 
to the direction of the police 
and conducted properly. 
Marchers, he said, should go 
into a square opposite the 
main entrance to the plant and 
should not obstruct roads or 
behave in a threatening, abu- 
sive or violent manner. 

Mr Justice Stuart-Smith 
had been asked to grant 
injuqctionsjmnning the print 
-unions Sogat ‘82 and the 
National Graphical Associ- 
ation, plus named officials, 
from staging anything but a 
peaceful picket of six people at 
the plant where The Times, 
The Sunday Times. The Sun 
and foe News of the World are 
published. 

He had also been asked to 
curb wbat News International 
claimed was unlawful picket- 
ing. marches and demonstra- 
tions at other premises owned 
by foe company. 

He was, be said, satisfied 
that foe plaintiffs would suc- 
ceed m their action at trial. “I 
see no reason why foe 
plaintiffs* employees should 
be abused, harassed, threat- 
ened or assaulted on foe way 
to or from work.” 

Mr Justice Stuart-Smith 
added: “Nothing in the release 


1 propose to grant is intended 
to stop peaceful picketing. 
And to suggest that foe grant- 
ing of an injunction is a 
restraint on foe freedom of 
speech is a complete nonsense. 

“Freedom of speech has 
never extended to intimida- 
tion, abuse and threats di- 
rected at those going about 
their lawful business. 

“Equally, there is no reason 
why the defendants cannot 
hold marches and rallies pro- 
vided these are peaceful and 
properly controlled and do not 
deteriorate into violence, as- 
sault and nuisance.” 

Mr Justice Stuart-Smith 
said it was not suggested that 
the defendants or those in 
authority in the unions con- 
doned such behaviour, still 
less encouraged it- They con-

demned it, he said, and it was 
against that background that 
foe threats and abuse on the 
picket line had to been seen. 

He added: “It is said on 
behalf of the defendants that 
most of those who are respon- ' 
sible for this deplorable vi- 
olence are not members of 
their unions, but members of 
what has been called the 
lunatic fringe, groups of peo- 
ple who sieze upon an indus- 
trial dispute as an opportunity 
to attack the police. No doubt 
this is so. But equally it is dear 
to my mind that not in- 
substantial numbers of those 
so involved are members of 
one or another of the unions 
involved.” 

In his two-and-a-half-hour 
reserved judgement, Mr Jus- 
tice Stuart-Smith outlined the 
background to the dispute, 
stating that in January this 
year Mr Rupert Murdoch, 
chairman of News Inter- 
national. was recorded as 
stating that foe industry had 
worked for many years with 
three times as many people as 
were necessary to do foe work 
at wages between twice and 
five times foe national 
average. 

Referring to foe background 
of the dispute, which came to 
a bead in January this year, 
foe judge said foe unions had 
refused company proposals on 
new technology, flexible work- 
ing and the abandonment of 
rigid demarcation lines. The 
unions counter-claimed with 
demands of guaranteed jobs 
until retirement age and auto- 
matic pay rises. 

In mid-Januaiy, foe judge 
said, the two unions balloted 
their members on industrial 
action and received substan- 
tial majorities. Next day, Mr 
Murdoch had written to every 
individual urging them to stay 
at work. But foe unions took 
strike action and were served 
with dismissal notices. “The 
battle lines were set” 

It was, he said, in dispute 
whether or not foe daily

Labour’s plans 
would push 
tax to 53p in 
£ says Tory 


By Sheila Gunn, Political Staff 


The Government inten- 
sified its attack ou Labour’s 
spending programme yes- 
terday. claiming it would push 
income tax to 53p in the 
pound or value-added tax to 
43 percent. 

Mr John MacGregor, chief 
secretary to the Treasury, took 
advantage of concern among' 
Labour's own supporters to 
reopen his correspondence 
with Mr Roy Hatteirsley, the 
shadow Chancellor, on pre- 
dicted costs. 

Mr MacGregor forecasted 
that in a foil year the costs of 
Labour’s policies bad risen 
from £24 billion last Feb- 
ruary, to more than £28 bil- 
lion. He said if pledges made 


by Mr Michael Meacher, 
shade 


low Social Services Sec- 
retary, were included, the final 
cost would be £35 billion. 

Mr MacGregor said in his 
letter to Mr Hattersley: “To 
finance a programme on this 
scale would require an in- 
crease in the basic rale of 
income tax to 53p in the 
pound, or, if you are not 
prepared to do it that way, in 
VAT to at least 43 per cent. 
This is dearly insupportable. 1 
assume that you will now be 
making dear which items you 
would propose to drop." 

Labour's National Exec- 
utive Committee decided ear- 
lier this week to delete some 
references to the losers and 
miners in its Programme for 
Progress paper. The document 
no longer includes claims that 
the richest 20 per cent would 
lose under Labour's plans 
while others would gain. The 
richest had been described as 
those earning more than 
£27,000 a year. 

Some leading Labour back 
benchers suggested yesterday 


that an independent audit of 
Labour's plans would help to 
discredit the Government's 
"scare mongering tactics" 
about big tax or VAT rises. 

Mr MacGregor’s list of 
Labour’s promises included; 

• £1,460 million on overseas 
aid; 

• £3,250 million for a 35- 
hour week; 

• £3,130 million on new 
homes; 

• £3,100 million in child 
benefits and pension rises; 

• £3,000 million on early 
retirements; 

• £1,000 million for expand- 
ing public services; 

• £1,450 million on 
subsidies; 

• £1,940 million on educa- 
tion throughout life plans; 

• £750 million on training for 
the unemployed; 

• £470 million for increases 
in student grants; 

• £320 million on free TV 
licences for pensioners; 

• £5,020 million for increases 
in supplementary benefits; 

• £110 million for doubling 
the Christmas bonus. 

He added details of when 
and where each pledge was 
made. 

Mr Hattersley replied to Mr 
MacGregor: “Your letters 
grow increasingly ally. As you 
know the Shadow Cabinet has 
agreed a firm framework for 
public exppditure setting out 
our priorities for reductions in 
unemployment and poverty. 
Your fantasy figures convince 
no-one." 

He launched his own 
counter-attack -by accusing Mr 
Nigel Lawson, Chancellor the 
the Exchequer, of saying and 
doing nothing, while his col- 
leagues had been busy 
“falsifying" Labour’s plans. 


Warning 

against 

nuclear 

closedown 


By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 


The lights would go out all 
over Britain if nuclear power 
stations were dosed by a 
future government, Lord Mar- 
shall, chairman of the Central 
Electricity Generating Board, 

said yesterday. 

At the same time, he said, ft 
was urgent for the board to 
build power stations, coal or 
unclear, in die south of En- 
gland to avoid a saturation Of 
power transmission system 
from the North. 

Commenting ou the Labour 
Party's plan to phase oat older 
unclear stations and to dose 
Sizewel! B, Lord Marshall 
said: “If a future government 
instructed ns to dose down an 
nuclear power stations within 
a short period of time, we could 
not maintain secure supplies 
of electricity to the nation. The 
tights, literally, would go out." 

Lord Marshall's remarks 
came at a press conference in 
London to amumce the 
electricity industry's 1985-86 
net profit of £414 mflHnn. The 
CEGB alone made a net profit 
of £141 million. 


Lord Marshall said some 
people were so disturbed by 
the Chernobyl amdent in the 
Soviet Unton that they were 

falling for the BmMb** do- 

of Britain's endear 


But be was certain that the 
Soviet design could not be 
built or licensed in the LTK. 

“If we were givena instruc- 
tion to phase oat nuclear 
power at the fastest rate 
consistent with retaining se- 
cure electricity supplies* it 
would take ns about 20 years," 

he said. 

Demand for electricity in 
the South had risen so mnch 
that the seven north-south 
transmission fines, capable of 
carrying 10,000 MW, would 
soon be saturated. Load Mar- 
shall said.

Prison officers set 


to lose overtime pay 

By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 


Prison officers* overtime 
pay, a major cause of disrup- 
tion in the prison service, 
would be abolished under 
plans released yesterday. 

Thirty per cent of officers’ 
pay is derived from overtime 
and in many cases it is higher, 
a prison service booklet, A 
Fresh Start, says. 

During 1985-86, the average 
risen officer's pay was 
15,000 a year, while the 
highest overtime earner re- 
ceived £27,000 and 100 offi- 
cers at Brixton earned more 
than £20,000. 


Maiming levels, which are 
bound up with overtime work- 
ing, repeatedly cause disputes 
and it is hoped that a reformed 

S of service will remove 

L 

Officers would get higher 
rates of basic pay, and over- 
time would be replaced by a 
system of contracted horns. 
The working week would 
probably be between 46 and 
52 hours. 

Management accepts that 
pay levels would have to take 
account of present average 
earnings- |

Work on rebuilding a 
bomb-damaged police station 
in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh 
Northern Ireland, halted yes- 
terday as contractors left the 
site after Provisional IRA 
death threats. 

Union officials fear more 
companies will leave other 
security force bases, bringing 
job losses in the construction 
industry. 

Mr Terry Carlin, northern 
officer of the Irish Congress of 
Trades Unions, has already 
called for greater police 
protection and a special unit 
to be set up to deal with the 
intimidation. 

The latest threat was issued 
after the ftovisfonal IRA 
killed Mr John Kyle, aged 40, 
abusinessman from Omagh, 
Go Tyrone, on Wednesday. 

Since last year the Pro- 
visional IRA has killed four 
businessmen for allegedly 
working for the security forces 
and shot dead another man in- 
a case of mistaken identity. 


World chess championship 


Action explodes in 
final few moments 


Playing the White pieces in 
the second game of their 
World Title Match at Lon- 
don’s Park Lane Hotel, world 
champion Gary Kasparov 
pressed bard for a win. Hie 
opening was a popular vari- 
ation of the Nimzowitsch- 
Indian Defence, introduced 60 
years ago in grandmaster the- 
ory by the Latvian genuis 
Aron Nimzowitsch. 

In spite of early simplifica- 
tion involving the exchange of 
queens, bishops and rooks, 
Kasparov maintained a slight 
advantage in terrain. As the 
dose of the session ap- 
proached Kasparov had a 
more active knight and con- 
trol of the open “c file” with 
his remaining rook. 

Grandmaster opinion dif- 
fered as to whether the situa- 
tion was a simple draw or 
whether Kasparov could con- 
tinue to strive for victory. Asa 
counter-balance to Kasparov's 
control of space, Karpov’s 
king was defensively well- 
placed in the centre of the 
board. But in the final few 
minutes of the session the 
position exploded into action. 

Kasparov penetrated with 
his rook into the heart of 
Karpov’s fortress; the result 
was that Kasparov won a 
pawn and now enjoys the dear 
advantage of two connected 
passed pawns on the queen's 
flank. Karpov seated his 41st 
move and still had chances to 
resist when play resumed 
yesterday. 

Mr Florencio Campo- 
manes. President of FIDE, the 
World Chess Federation, said 
that he would not be releasing 
any portion of FIDFs share of 
the prize fopd for the victim's 
of the Chernobyl nuclear 
catastrophe. Mr Cam po manes 


said the question of the 
Chernobyl donation is an 
internal Soviet problem. 

The world record prize rand 
of £610,000, of which the 
former GLC provided 
£300,000. has already been 
pledged by Kasparov and 
Karpov to go to the Chernobyl 
Relief Fund. 

Spectators crowded into the 
ballroom of the Park Lane 
Hotel and the overflow of 300 
more towards The Times 
commentary room, where 
Dutch Grandmaster Genna 
Sosonko explained moves.

Hebden and Watson 
lead British contest 


By Harry Golombek 


At the end of round three of 
the Klein wort Grieveson Brit- 
ish Chess Championship in 
Southampton, the lead was 
shared by Mark Hebden and 
William Watson on three 
points. 

Eight players are tied for 
third, among them' Murray 
Chandler, James Flaskett and 
Jonathan MesteL The 1985 
British champion, Jonathan 
Speelman, lost to Michael 
Basman. 

The dash between Mark 


Hebden and Glenn Flear was 
the most exciting game of the 
day. Hebden sacrificed a 
knight and obtained a useful 
position which led to a win- 
ning endgame, with rook mid 
three pawns against bishop 
and knight. 

The women’s contest is led 
by Susan Arkdl, from Droit- 
wich, with three points fol- 
lowed by Corry Vreeken, The 
Netherlands, and Naidu Nir- 
mala, India, each with 2% 
points. • ■ ■ 


Message of the poll 


Palace ‘rift’ boosts Labour 


Confined from page 1 


recent polls Is Oat opinion is 
lemming more sharply fo- 
cused, the British public has 
firmer views on the subject 
than ever before. 

Although nearly two thirds 
of those interviewed said that 
Mrs Thatcher should not con- 
tinue with her present policies, 

she b still man ag in g to carry 
Tory supporters with her, just. 

Fifty-two per cent off those 
fotendiiig to vote Conservative 
said they should continue with 
her present policies, even ff 
they result In the tweak-up of 
the Commonwealth. 

Furthermore, over two 
thirds off respondents said 
their sympathies were with the 
Made population of Sooth 
Africa. That is in*' marked 
contrast to the public’s percep- 
tions of the Prime JVfinister’s 
feelings. Sixty-four per cent 
believe her sympathies are 
with the Botha government. 

The figures reveal consid- 
erable public attachment to 
the Commonwealth, with 59 
per cent saying that the in- 
stitution is important or very 
important for Britain’s stand- 
ing in world politics, rising to 
71 per cent for its importance 
to Britain’s overseas trade. 

More people^) per cent, 
think Britain’s future should 
rest mainly with the Common- 
wealth than four years ago 
when the Mori poll for the 
BBC gave the figure of 21 per 
cent 

Perhaps the most signifi- 
cant statistic here though is 
the figure for Europe which 
has gone up five points to 32 
per cent compared with the 
1982 figure. 

Mori interviewed 1 ,045 adults 
aged 18 and over at 53 constit- 
uency points in Great Britain on 
July 30/3I, - 1986.

Manual workers suffer 
high premature death 
as health gap widens 




Working class men are 
more prone to premature 
death frdm heart disease, lung 
cancer and strokes than white- 
collar workers, and unemploy- 
ment may be an important 
factor, according to medical 
researchers. 

The health gap is widening 
between the c las se s , the 
researchers said m the latest 
issue of The Lancet^ published 
today. “It is possible that 
worsening unemployment, 
selectively affecting manual 
occupations, causes a true rise 


in mortality of manual • cal statistician at the Office of 
occupations relative to non- Population Censuses and Sur- 


raanual occupations." 

But they said that un- 
employment alone does not 
entirely explain the worse 
position of manual workers. 
The widening . income . rap 
between' classes, and other 
factors such as smoking, diet, 
alcohol and environmental 
and- occupational hazards, 
should be considered. 

The research, by Professor 
Michael Marmot, of Univer- 
sity College London, a roedi- 


veys, shows that the relative 
disadvantage of manual to 
non-man uaj classes has in- 
creased since the early 1970s 
in all deaths, including those 
from coronary heart disease;

for poison epidemic’ 

, ‘ By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 

Most health authorities in 
England could not cope with 
an oatbreak of food poisoning, 
and hare not learned from the 
Stanley Royd Hospital epi- 
demic m Wakefield two years 
ago, a survey reveals. 

A pnbUc inquiry into die 
Wakefield case, which 
claimed 19 fives and left 
hundreds of patients ID, urged 
authorities to prepare contin- 
gency plans. Bat most do not 
have a written plan of action, 
or have lacomplete or inad- 
equate proposals, the survey 
found. 

“The resistance to such 
p lanning suggests that most 
authorities would be unable to 
deal with outbreaks efficiently 
or effectively," conclude the 
doctors vrho conducted the 
survey, published in the Brit- 
ish Medical Journal today. 

Dr Roger Battery and Dr 
Mokesh Kapila, of Cambridge 
Health Authority's depart- 
ment of c ommun ity medidne, 
asked the general managers of 
all 192 district health authori- 
ties if they had made contin- 
gency plans for a serious 
outbreak. 


Of the 131 whose answers 
were analysed, 83 did not have 
plans, and only half said plans 
were bein£ prepared. Of 29 

plans stained, only three were 

considered to be reasonably 
adequate. 

Most were “seriously defic- 
eadent” with vague objectives 
or procedures, and some were 
nearly ten years old. “This 
implies that the lessons of 
Stanley Boyd Hospital have 
not been learned," the doctors 
-say- 

The reasons given by some 
of the managers “typify the 
smug attitude of some senior 
members of staff, an attitude 
that was severely criticized by 
the of inquiry,'' 

they say. 

The doctors point out that 
there have been big increases 
in cases of food poisoning in 
recent years, with hospitals 
accounting for about one third 
of all outbreaks of salmonella 
poisoning outside the home. 

They believe plans of action 
need to be drawn np to avoid a 
public health i 


lung cancer and cerebrovascu- 
lar disease. ; 

' Regional 1 differences In 
deaths from heart disease 
persist, with manua l workers 
in Wales the only group in 
Britain to record a fell in the 
death rate. In every other 
region, bean disease mortality 
has declined in non-manual 
classes. 

The researchers compared 
death rates between 1979-83 
with those of 1970-72. Among 
women, they found that 
deaths from lung cancer and 
heart disease had Mien in 
non-manual classes, but in- 
creased in manual classes. 

Another study in The Lan- 
cet . into alcohol-related ad- 
missions to a London general 
hospital, shows that Scottish, 
Irish and Polish patients form 
a higher than average percent- 
age. More than half of all the 
patients concerned were a yrf 
between 14 and 40, and 70 per 
cent were men. 

“Country of birth is dearly 
an important factor in the 
pattern of alcohol-related ad- 
missions. People of southern 
Irish and Scottish extraction 
constitute one-third of all such 
admissions, although they 
form only 10 per cent of the 
population," the researchers 
at the Whittington Hospital, 
north London, said. 

A possible explanation for 
the fogh Irish, percentage was 
that many Irish immigrants, 
often unskilled workers, set- 
tled in inner city areas where 
social isolation and environ- 
mental factors may contribute 
to increased drinking. 


Dismissal 
after leaks 
at firm 

A loyal secretary was dis- 
missed after she leaked details 
of a secret ..boardroom account 
used to fund luxury holidays 
for live film company direc- 
tors, it was said at an indus- 
trial tribunal. -in. London, 
yesterday. 

Miss Elizabeth Byford^ged 
40. passed on information 
about the hidden account to 
minority shareholders in Him 
Finances Ltd, a London 
company. 

The tribunal was also told 
that more than £60,000 was 
paid from the account into a 
company owned by a woman 
friend of the managing direc- 
tor, Mr Richard Soames. 

But the tribunal heard that 
acting on the information 
received, shareholders served 
a High Court writ on the 
directors, who then dismissed 
Miss Byford from her £40,000 
a year job. 

Miss Byford of Putney HOI, 
Putney, south London, is 
claiming unfair dismissal by 
the company, which is based 
in prestigious Berkeley 
Square. 

The tribunal beard that the 
five directors staged a board- 
room. coup in October 1982, 
ousting the company's 
founder and chairman Mr 
Bobby Garrett after secretly 
buying up 37 per cent of the 
shares. 

Mr Garrett, who died from 
cancer three weeks later, had 
given Miss Byford her job 20 
years ago, and the tribunal 
heard she was “incensed" at 
the takeover. 

When she found out about 
the account, she told her 
former employer and other 
shareholders, who called in 
management consultant Ste- 
phen HilL 

: “She did the obvious thing. 
She turned to her chairman 
because she had no alter- 
native. You are dealing with a 
board of directors who are 
alleged to have been in a 
conspiracy," Mr Hill told the 
tribunal, 

Mr Soames, aged 50, of St 
Margaret's Bay, Kent, told the 
tribunal that trips to Los 
Angeles and Tanpers were 
“purely for business." 

The directors now face an 
action in the High Court taken 
out by minority shareholders. 
The hearing was adjourned 
until Monday. 


Teacher anger at 
‘use as pawns’ 

By Mark Dowd 

The leader of the Labour- son said: “For some of those 


led local authority employers 
was accused yesterday of 
“wishing to use teachers as 
pawns in the general election 
game". . 

Mr Peter Dawson, general 
secretary of one of Britain's 
fastest - growing teaching ' 
unions, - made the" accusation' 
during a speech at the Pro- 
fessional Association of 
Teachers annual conference in 
Manchester, four days after 
signing the new teachers’ pay 
and conditions deaL 

He said that Mr John 
Peatman. the employers' lead-, 
er at the weekend Ac as talks, 
bad deliberately floated an 
unrealistic £4.5 billion to 
union representatives without 
even consulting other mem- 
bers of the management team. 

Mr Dawson said that after 
the ensuing confusion. Sir 
John Wood, chairman of the 
Acas panel, eventually de- 
cided that matters had got out 
of hand and a fresh start tothe 
talks was ordered. The es- 
timated cost of the final 
package is £2.9 billion. 

In a dear reference to Mr 
Peatman's actions. Mr Daw- 


involved in the Acas proceed- 
ings the aim is not so much to 
settle teachers' pay as to settle 
Thatcher’s hash." 

- His comments are certain to 
cast a cloud over future dis- 
cussions between unions and 
employers. Although the ques- 
tions of cover for absent 
colleagues and non-contact 
time for primary teachers 
have been agreed in principle, 
specific details of the new 
teaching regime have still to 
be decided. 

Mr Dawson said that with- 
out government resources the 
Coventry agreement would 
“collapse like a house of! 
cards". 

• The union called on the 
Government to give schools 
an absolute right to exclude 
permanently disruptive pupils 
(the Press Association 
reports). 

The conference voted 
overwhelmingly to urge min- 
isters to toughen the Educa- 
tion Bill, which allows schools 
a right of appeal only if the 
local education authority in- 
sists that a pupil be reinstated. 


Embassy ‘scourge’ to 
head Birkbeck battle 

By Mark Ellis 


Dr Tessa Blackstone; for- 
mer scourge of the Foreign 
Office as a member of the 
Central Policy Review Staff in 
the Cabinet Office, is to lead a 
campaign to secure the future 
of Brrkbeck College, London. 

The appointment of Dr 
Blackstone as Master of Birk- 
beck, the only college in 
Britain to specialize in part- 
time degree courses for adults, 
is seen as a spirited move to 
counter grant cuts which have 
led to a college cash crisis. 

Dr Blackstone, aged 43, who 
is clerk and director of educa- 
tion at the Inner London 
Education Authority, said yes- 
terday that her priorities in- 
cluded improving funding, 
and marketing the institution. 

She said: “Obviously I hope 
the College will have a a higher 
profile in London in terras of 
serving the community. One 
of the things I hope to take up 
is developing a relationship 
with major employers, both 
private and public, to meet 


their training needs and to get 
financial support.” 

Dr Blackstone, who will 
take up her appointment next 
year, hopes to negotiate a 
waiving of the usual entry 
qualifications to allow more 
students access 

She also hopes to persuade 
the University Grants Com- 
mittee and London Univer- 
sity to alter their funding 
formulae to prevent the col- 
lege losing £1.6 million from 
its £7.7 million budget within 
four years. 

Dr Blackstone. a former 
lecturer at the London School 
of Economics and a professor 
of education administration at 
the University of London 
Institute of Education, ruffled 
establishment feathers in the 
1970s as an adviser to the 
Cabinet’s “Think Tank". 

She was dubbed the “dark- 
eyed, evil genius" by the 
Foreign Office for her part m a 
review which led to 280 
recommendations highly criti- 
cal of spending in embassies.

Gallery director surprised at choice 


Mr Robert Neil MacGregor 
professed himself delighted 
bat s urprised yesterday on 
being .designated one of the 
youngest directors of the Na- 
tional Gallery in its 362-year 
history. 

In a sense, Mr Macgregor, 
who celebrated his fortieth 
birthday last month, is also 
among the least experienced 
executives to take up arguably 
the most important position in 
British art. 

Presently editor of The 
BarfingrouMagazioe, and for- 
merly a lecturer in the history 
of art and architecture, he has 
never directed a gallery or the 
purchase of art treasures.

qualities for the 


However Mr Jacob Roth- 
schild, chairman of the 
Gallery's trustees, evidently 
felt that was no disadvantage 
in a highly structured 
organization where his new 
director would act essentially 
as a co-ordinator. 

“It is not a question of the 
director going off and buying 
pictures on his own. There are 
discussions with the curators 
and eventually the trustees. It 
is very much a co-ordinating 
role." 

The CIvO Service panel 
which made the selection, and 
on which Mr Rothschild sat as 
a member, had felt that Mr 
MacGregor had “quite 


outstanding” 

Job. 

The director-designate, who 
will succeed Sr Michael 
Levey at the beginning of next 
year, said his ■«wnwKm prior- 
ity would be to oversee the 
refurbishing of the Gallery 
because of an extension 
planned to open in 1990. He 
also wished to further develop 
its role as a centre for scholar- 
ship. 

Fntnre purchases would de- 
pend on what was available. 
However be saw a need to 
acquire more nineteenth cen- 
tury paintings, particularly 
German works of this period 


which were not represent e d. 

Mr Rothschild confirmed 
that the position had been 
offered to Mr Edmond 
Pflisbury, director of the 
Kimball Art Museum in Fort 
Worth, Texas, but that he had 
declined to accept it. 

However he dismissed 
suggestions that Mr 
MacGregor was a “second 
best" candidate, saying: “It 
was more a question of two 
first choices, both of them of 
outstanding merit" 

Mr MacGregor added: “Ido 
not thmk anyone who knows 
Dr PiDsbury could mind being 
runner-up to him." 


New child 
abduction 
agreement 

By Pete - Evans 
Home Affairs 
Correspondent 

New powers to secure the 
return of children abducted to 
or from the United Kingdom 
were announced yesterday by 
the Lord Chancellor, Lord 
Hailsham of St Maryiebooe. 

Reciprocal arrangements 
come into force from today 
between the UK and 10 other 
countries for the return of 
abducted children. The 
scheme includes legal aid for 
parents whose children have 
been abducted. 

The new arrangements have 
been imHw two inter- 
national conventions. They 
wfll enable a parent, who has 
rights of custody of a child 
under 16, to enforce them in 
any convention country. 
Where a child has been ab- 
ducted from the UK, the courts 
in convention countries will be 
required to order the retnm of 
the chil d. The UK has the 
same obligations in relation to 
children abducted to this 
country. 

The countries who have 
ratified one or both conven- 
tions are: Austria, Belgium, 
Canada, Cyprus, France, 
Hungary, Luxembourg, 
Portenal, Spain, Switzerland 
and me UK. It is expected that 
Australia, Finland, the United 
States, West Germany, and 
the Netherlands wifi ratify the 
convention shortly. 

In the past the absence of 
effective international co-op- 
eration has encouraged par- 
ents and others to abscond 
with a child in the hope of 
thwarting an existing custody 
order, or of rccemng' more 
favourable treatment in an 
overseas jurisdiction. 

The Lord Chancellor's 
Department says that recovery 
of the child in such drcmn- 
stances has often proved diffi- 
cult and distressing, because 
of delay, uncertainty and 
expense. 

Lord Hailsham said: “Al- 
though the size of the problem 
of international child kidnap- 
ping may be small in nameri- 
cal terms — abont 200 cases in 
and oat of the UK come to our 
notice a year — it is a growing 
eriL And the victims, the 
innocent parent and the ab- 
ducted child, will often suffer 
cruel and avoidable distress. 

“Today's announcement 
means that the machinery Is 

now in position to enable to 
enable the UK to join with 
others in tackling what is a 
truly international social prob- 
lem in a determined way." 

When a child has been 
abducted, courts hi convention 
countries will normally be 
required to order the return of 
the child. That wiB mean 
parents wfll not have to fight a 
custody case overseas. 


Brinks-Mat aftermath 


Laws will rob crooks of loot 

By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 

Tough new laws to deprive Ministers were horrified by Their first instinct was not 


criminals of their ill-gotten 
gains are being seriously 
considered by the Govern- 
ment- 

Stiff penalties against bank- 
ers and other financial man- 
agers who turn a blind eye to 
money they know is the 
proceeds of serious crime is 
one main option now being 
canvassed by ministers. 

They are also thinking of 
new powers to confiscate the 
assets of professional 
criminals. 

. The moves come after the 
case of Kenneth Noye, who 
was jailed for 14 years last 
week at the Central Criminal 
Court and fined £500,000 for 
masterminding a big launder- 
ing operation to dispose of the 
gold in the £26 million Brinks- 
Mat bullion robbery. 

His offshore bank accounts 
containing £32 million have 
been frozen and civil proceed- 
ings started for the recovery of 
the hauL 


disclosures that Noye and his 
accomplices could deposit 
huge sums of at high 
street banks without suspicion. 

Parliament has already set a 
precedent for draconian ac- 
tion against professional crim- 
inals with the 
Trafficking Offences 
which became law last month. 

Under its provisions, assets 
gained in the previous six 
years are automatically seized 
from people convicted in a 
crown court. Crucially, they 
must prove the assets were 
acquired legitimately to win 
them back. 

People such as bankers and 
brokers, who help drug traf- 
fickers to salt away profits 
from the drag trade, risk jail 
sentences of up to 14 years 
under a new offence of 
laundering. 

Ministers are now consid- 
ering to what extent similar 
penalties should be extended 
to other crimes. 


to take advantage of wide- 
spread public revulsion at the 
activities of the drag barons 
by launching a blanket crack- 
down on the profits of or- 
ganized crime. 

But they recognize that the 
Drug .criminal bankruptcy proce- 
Bill, dures in the C riminal Justice 
Act, 1972, have not worked 
and must be scrapped. 

The Noye case has given 
added impetus to the re-think. 
But it is thought unlikely that 
the law will be changed so 
drastically that all pro- 
fessional criminals will forfeit 
their personal assets unless 
they can - show they were 
obtained legally. 

The Government’s de- 
cisions will be set out in the 
Criminal Justice Bill to be laid 
before Parliament's next ses- 
sion. Ministers expect fierce 
debate and are ready fin- 
moves by Tory backbenchers 
to tighten further the planned 
changes.

The last wish of the poet 
Philip Larkin that his un- 
published writings should be 
destroyed after his death has 
not beep carried out 

Mr Larkin, who died last 
December aged 63, left 
instructions in his wfii, pub- 
lished yesterday, tost all his 
unpublished writings, diaries, 
texts and manuscripts should 
be destroyed unread, ami that 
most letters to him should be 
destroyed or returned to their 
senders. 

He left estate valued at 
£286^60 neL 


But yesterday Mr Anthony 
Thwaite. the critic and one of 
Mr Larkin's three literary 
executors, said that be hoped 
to preserve much of the poet's 
unpublished work. 

“His personal diaries were 
destroyed very soon after his 
death, but we axe still going 
through the process of 
examining the rest, because 
his will is open to two 
interpretations," Mr Thwahe 
said. 

“Onedause says he wants 
everything destroyed, hot an- 
other leaves it to his literary 


executors to deride on what 
should be destroyed. Obvi- 
ously we would like to preserve 
as much as possible and avoid 
a wholesale bonfire." 

Mr Thwaite, author of 
Larkin At 60, has already 
made it known that he hopes to 
edit and publish the poet's 
letters and poems. 

The only writings which Mr 
Larkin specified should not be 
destroyed were letters from 
Margaret M B Jones, his 
long-standing confidante, 
Kingsley Amis, Robert Con- 
quest and the late Barbara 


Pym, which he bequeathed to 
the Bodleian Library, Oxford. 

He left books, tapes, records 
and photographs to friends, 
with the request that they bear 
in mind the Larkin Collection 
at. Hull University, where he 
worked as librarian for 30 
years. 

He left his home and much 
of his assets, indndmg all 
income from his literary as- 
sets, to Margaret Jones; he 
specified that on her death 
they should be divided equally 
between the Society of Au- 
thors and the RSPCA. 


An exhausted but dated 
Father Lawrence Jenco dis- 
charged the promise he had 
given his Lebanese captors by 
handing over in person a 
confidential message to the 
Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr 
Robert Runde, at Lambeth 
Palace in London yesterday. 

The first part ofhis promise 
he had kept in Rome on 
Wednesday when he handed a 
similar message to the Pope: 
He was released after 19 
months as a hastate, after 
negotiations in which Mr 
Terry Waite, the archbishop’s 
special representative, appears 
to have played a central role. 

Dr Runde said yesterday 
that Mr Waite's help had been 
Specifically requested by the 
Roman Catholic Church. But 
no-one was prepared to give 
more details, and Mr Waite 
said the situation remained 
delicate because of the 
continuing danger to other 
hostages. 

Some indication of the 
churches' response to the mes- 
sages may be known today, 
and the Vatican and Lambeth 


Palace were in touen yes- 
terday. 

Fr Jenco also has a message 
for President Reagan, which 
be is expected to convey on his 
return to Washington today. 
The messages to the church 
leaders were in writing, but 
that for the President was, Fr 
Jenco said, “in his heart”. 

Fr Jenco, who arrived in 
Britain from Rome, was 
joined by members of his 
family at Lambeth Palace, 
where it had been arranged 
that another former Lebanon 
hostage, the Rev Benjamin 
Weir, should be present. 

Fr Jenco and Mr Weir, with 
the Jenco family, members of 
the Servile Order, and Mr 
Waite took pan in an informal 
service in the private chapel at 
Lambeth Palace, led by Dr 
Runcie. 

Fr Jenco said that he and 
the other American hostages 
had been sustained by their 
faith through their ordeal 
though he added: "When I 
spoke to God sometimes, 1 
said to God, I am not Job." 
But be would not discuss his 
imprisonment, nor the state of 
the other hostages. 


‘400 jobs’ 
from news 
by satellite 

By BfU Johnstone 
Technology Correspondent 
A 24-hour satellite news 
channel will create 400 media 
jobs, according to an Indepen- 
dent Television News 
proposaL 

The company is hoping to win 
a franchise from the Indepen- 
dent Broadcasting Authority 
for a £20 million-a-year sat- 
ellite news channel to be 
launched within three years. 

The authority is considering 
submissions from those in- 
terested -in operating satellite 
services. Three channels are 
on offer and submissions must 
be made by the end of August 
The ITN service would use 
live broadcasts as weB as 
material from the ITN news 
team, induding Channel 4 
News. 

The channel would be fi- 
nanced either through viewer 
subscription or by advertising. 

It would be carried on a 
high-powered Direct 
Broadcasting Satellite (DBS) 
from which programmes 
would be “beamed" directly 
to viewers' homes. A small 
antenna and electronic re- 
ceiver are expected to cost 
about £200. 

The ITN submission says: 
“There is substantial ev- 
idence - both here and in the 
United States — that a 
continous news channel will 
establish a regular and sizeable 
audience and with ft, commer- 
cial viability." 

The timing of the launch of 
the ITN news channel is 
uncertain. 


Car found 
just after 
woman 
vanished 

The car used by Miss 
Suzanna Lam pi ugh, the miss- 
ing west London estate agent, 
was abandoned in a quiet 
Fulham street within minutes 
of her last public sighting a 
mile away, police disclosed 
yesterday (Stewart Tendler

at about 1.00pm. 

Mrs Wendy Jones, who 
lives in Stevenage Road, has 
told police she saw the car 
parked a few minutes after 
that 

Police have issued a four 
point code of practice for 
estate agents and their staff. 

It suggests no women estate 
agent should go to a property 
alone; speculative property 
viewere should come to the 
estate agents' offices; there 
should be no casual meetings, 
and potential clients should be 
asked for full details including 
a telephone number.and clear 
identification.

Cardinal acts 
against book 
on in vitro 
fertilization 

By Clifford Langley, Religions Affairs Correspondent 


Cardinal Basil Hume, Arch- 
bishop of Westminster, has 
withdrawn his imprimatur, or 
official "permission to pub- 
lish” from a book by one of 
the most distinguished Jesuit 
theologians in Britain. 

The book challenges aspects 
of official church teaching on 
sexual morality and supports 
the use of in vitro embryo 
fertilization. 

It is Bioethics and Belief by 
Father John Mahoney, SJ, 
who has recently been ap- 
pointed F.D. Maurice Profes- 
sor of Theology 1 at King's 
College, London. He is presi- 
dent of the Catholic Theologi- 
cal Association of Great 
Britain, and a former principal 
of Heythrop College. London. 

Fr Mahoney, aged 55, a 
Scot, argues in the book that 
the church's disapproval of 
artificial insemination by a 
husband (A1H) is based on the 
supposed immorality of mas- 
turbation, which in such a 
context might be excusable. 

He questions the church's 
ban on artificial insemination 
by a donor (AID), rejecting the 
official view that it is a form of 
adultery; and he contradicts 
the traditional assumption 


that an embryo is a human 
being with a soul from the first 
moment of conception, and 
thereby he opens up the 
possibility of experimentation 
on early embryos. 

Fr Mahoney states that even 
the use of a “host mother” to 
bear the child of another 
woman, using in vitro tech- 
niques, is not necessarily 
immoral. 

The appearance of the book 
in 1984 (published by Sbeed 
and Ward at £3.95) brought 
complaints from unspecified 
sources to Cardinal Hume's 
office that it contradicted 
official church teaching. He 
has been in correspondence 
with the Vatican's Congrega- 
tion for the Doctrine of the 
Faith concerning his views. 

The cancellation of the 
imprimatur was announced in 
a joint statement by the autbor 
and the vicar general of West- 
minster Archdiocese, Mgr 
Ralph Brown, in a restricted- 
circulation official bulletin 
called Briefing. No other 
announcement was made. 

The statement says that Fr 
Mahoney was not strictly 
obliged to seek an imprimatur 
for his book in the first place. 



Regional trends 


South-east outstrips all on earnings 


By Robin Young 

The South-east is now the 
only region in the United 
Kingdom with earnings above 
the national average. 

The region tends to domi- 
nate the national picture, 
according to government stat- 
isticians, because it has by for 
the most people - 30 per cent 
of the UK total — and is more 
prosperous. 

At April 1985 men earned 
an average of£l92 per wedt in 
the UK. In the South-east the 
figure was £214, and in 
Greater London, £233. 

Men in Scotland, the region 
with the next highest mate 
earnings, earn only £190 a 
week in spite ofhigh wages in 
the energy and water supply 
industries. In Northern Ire- 
land the figure was £172, the 
lowest rate. 

Similarly, the average 
weekly earnings for women 
were £126 nationwide; but 
£141 in the South-east, and 


£154 in Greater London. 
Northern Ireland ranked sec- 
ond, with average earnings for 
women of £1 22 weekly. 

More than a quarter of the 
tax units (married couples and 
individuals) in the South-east 
had incomes greater than 
£10.000 a year in 1982-83. 

East Anglia, with 23 per 
cent, was the only other region 
where that proportion bet- 
tered the UK average of 21.6 
percent. 

The South-east had average 
weekly household income of 
£231 in 1983-84, £40 more 
than the next region, the 
South-west. Northern Irish 
households averaged -only 
£153 a week. 

It followed that the South- 
east had a much higher expen- 
diture a household than any 
Other region. 

Though the proportion of 
household expenditure going 
on food was less, at 19 per 
cent, than in any other region, 
the amount was still greater in 


absolute terms than for house- 
holds dsewhere. 

The gross domestic product 
in the South-east was £92.4 
billion, in 1984 at current 
prices, £7 billion up on 1983 
and an average a head of 
£5.401 Northern Ireland's 
was the lowest in the country, 
at £3,61 5. 

In the 10-year period from 
1975 to 1984 the South-east’s 
relative GDP had climbed 
from 1 13 to 1 1 7 per cent of the 

UK average. 

Personal disposable income 
grew from 1 10 per cent of the 
UK average in 1 975 to 1 14 per 
cent in 1984. Residents of 
Greater London were better 
off still, with persona] dis- 
posable income 25 per cent 
above the average in 1 984. 

By contrast, in the West 
Midlands PDI a head declined 
from Vh per cent above the 
national average in 1975 to 7 
percent below in 1984. 

The highest qualified mem- 
bers of the workforce are 


concentrated in the South- 
east. especially Greater Lon- 
don where 13 per cent had a 
degree or equivalent qualifica- 
tion in 19S4. 

More than a fifth of the 
heads of households in the 
South-east were in managerial 
or professional emnployment, 
a considerably higher propor- 
tion than anywhere else. In the 
North almost half the heads of 
households were unemployed 
in 19S4. 

Unemployment levels in 
the South-east, at just under 
10 per cent in October 1985, 
were less than anywhere else 
in the UK. 

But even the unemployed 
had better prospects in the 
South-east After the South- 
west and East Anglia, the 
region had the lowest propor- 
tion of unemployed who had 
been out of work for more 
than a year — 36 per cent 
compared with a UK average 
of 41 per cent

Fatal or serious car ac- 
cidents rose again in 1984 in 
spite of a foil after the in- 
troduction of compulsory seat 
belts in January 1983. 

All areas of the UK showed 
increased casualties, but the 
worst record was in London 
and the South-east with a 6 per 
cent rise on 1983. 


London and the South-east 
had twice the number of fetal 
or serious accidents than the 
rest of the country, with 57 for 
each 100 kilometres of road. 

London also had more child 
casualties on the roads, with 
544 per 100,000 population 
compared with only 385 in the 
South-west 

Nearly a third (31 per cent) 
of all main road accidents in 
the UK happened at night

Northern Ireland, the least 
crowded.

Water pollution on 
increase in Devon 

By Hugh Clayton, Environment Correspondent 


Pollution of some English 
waterways increased in the 
early 1980s, the surevy says. 

The total length of river and 
canal classified as of bad or 
poor quality throughout En- 
gland and Wales dropped only 
slightly from 10.5 to 10 per 
cent. 

Although waterway pollu- 
tion fell sharply in much of 
southern England and the 
Midlands, it remained almost 
static in East Anglia and rose 
in Devon and Cornwall and 
between Crewe and the Scot- 
tish border, and area covered 
by the North-western Water 
Authority. 

Although the rise was slight 
in Devon and Cornwall,. the 
polluted length in the. North- 
west rose from little more than 
15 per cent of the total to 20 
per cent despite operating 
expenditure worth more than 
£1Q per bead of population in 
the area 

"There is more dereliction 


in the North-western area” 
the survey’ report said. 

The survey also showed that 
18 per cent of the land in the 
United Kingdom was covered 
by some blanket restriction on 
development-Ten per cent 
was in - national parks or 
Scottish scenic areas and 8 per 
cent in England, Wales and 
Northern Ireland was in areas 
of outstanding natural beauty. 

The main land use was still 
forming, which accounted for 
72 per cent of the surface of 
the United Kingdom. There 
was evidence of continuing 
polarization of farming in 
England and Wales with a 
heavy concentration of live- 
stock and grazing land in the 
West with cereals and 
sugarbeet in the East 

East Anglia contained 
barely 5 per cent of the forms 
in the United Kingdom but 
almost 10 per cent of those of 
200 hectares (540 acres) or 
more. 


Star Wars 


Scientists join forces 
for space power tests 

By Ptoupe Wright, Science Editor 


British and Israeli scientists 
are working on a power system 
for space platforms under a 
Star Wars research contract 
from the United States 
government 

It is thoagfat that the inven- 
tion coaid provide between 10 
and 50 megawatts of electricity 
for each platform, or enough to 
power a small town. 

The idea is being developed 
by a network of university 
groups brought together by 
SoImecs, a research company 
specia l i zi ng in renewable en- 
ergy technologies, which has 
offices in London. 

The scientists take either a 
low grade energy source such 
as geothermal heat, waste hot 
gas and water, or a diffuse 
source such as solar power, 
and convert it into electricity. 

Solmecs claims that its sci- 
entists can take any heat 
source and convert it in«n 
electricity. 

Th e idea for the space 
system is based on discoveries 
in magneto-hydrody namic , 
MHD, made by Professor 
Herman Branover, a Russian 
£migr6, at the Ben Curios 
University. 

The concept is that electric- 


ity can be produced by means 
Of a liquid conductor such as 
mercury or sodium, in place of 
the conducting coil which a 
conventional generator uses. 

In the 1960s, millions of 
pounds were spent by Britain 
the United States and else- 
where to perfect an MHD 
machine for a commercial 
power station, but the concept 
proved fruitless. 

However, those schemes 
were based on forcing a hot 
stream of gas, which had 
reached the state of an elec- 
trically charged plasma, be- 
tween the poles of powerful 
magnets. 

The only machine of that 
generation which produces 
electricity is in die Soviet 
Union. 

' Professor Branover de- 
signed a machine that worked- 
at more modest temperatures. 
Energy from a source of heat is 
absorbed by a gas-and-tiqoid- 
metal mixture in dosed-circmt 
pipes. The hot gas provides ' 
the "lift" to force the liquid - 
metal round the pipes, of 
which some areas are sor- . 
rounded by a powerful magnet, - 
where the conversion of heat to 
electricity occurs.

Any sanctions against South 
',Vj t;, Africa which might be ad* 

, v/ a opted at the Commonwealth 
r? i t mini-summit next week 
would only be effective if they 
were backed and matched by 
the United States and the 
V European Community,. Mr 
1 Bob Hawke, the Australian 
V 1 '- prime Minister, said yes-' 
terday. 

■ Bui he added that the 
fc » “peremptory dismissaT of Sir 
Geoffrey Howe’s mission 
‘ would intensify pressure in 
Europe for effective measures 
’ against Pretoria. 

He said that the present 
.d\ tone ofihe sanctions debate in 
^ the US gave him a “sense of 
v„ optimism 1 ’ about the policy 
.7 that the Administration wifi 
- adopt. Ultimatdy, he m- 
> ; V : ' cheated, such a concerted ap- 
; -? l proach was possible. 

Mr Hawke was speaking in 
: an interview before leaving for 

■ , 7 London, for the meeting with 
■* Mrs Thatcher and leaders 
from the Bahamas, Canada 
: India, Zambia and Zunbabwe. 

Ausiralia was a leading 
' advocate of sanctions at the 
Chogm summit in Nassau, 
and last month's Labor Party 
conference agreed a stiff 19- 
point package of proposed - 
anti-South African measures. 

These include a withdrawal 
of South African Airways' 
landing rights, a ban on min- 
eral imports and exports of 
raw materials, and prohibition 
of new investment in South 
Africa. 

Mr Hawke declined to dis- 
close what specific proposals 
he will put forward next week 
(the second tranche of the 
Nassau agreement will ' be 
used, in effect, as an.agenda) 
but indicated that Australia 
wanted to be part of a muted 
Commonwealth front, and 


Pundra 


From Stephen Taylor, Sydney 

that it would not introduce its 
own selective package of 
sanctions. 

“1 do not see it as wise for 
Australia to. go in any signifi- 
cant sense beyond what the 
Commonwealth is doing. I 
shall want to play my role in 
London in getting a general 
and hopefully common po- 
sition." 

Unlike the frontline states, 
Australia stands to benefit 
from a South African trade 
boycott. . 

Mr Hawke said Canberra 
would have a responsibility to 
consider a frontline request 
for economic aid, but he made 
no commitment. 

He differed with Mr Bill 
Hayden, his Foreign Minister, 
who has said that the sanc- 
tions issue could lead to the 
break-op of the Common- 
wealth ffMre Thatcher reftises 
- to adopt tougher measures. 

“There will be tensions, bat 
I do not believe there wifi be 
break-up or withdrawals. 

“There may be some isola- 
tion of Britain within the 
Commonwealth." 

There was no question, he 
said, of “looking for expul- 
sions or withdrawals". Al- 
though some Made leaders, 
such as President Kaunda of 
Zambia, had threatened to 
withdraw, Mr Hawke said be 
believed they could be dis- 
suaded, and pointed to pre- 
vious -crikes, such as that over 
Rhodesia,. which he said had 
demonstrated the strength of 
the organization. 

Asked if he would be argu- 
ing the case for sanctions so 
foiriMy if it was going to be to 
the detriment of Australia's 


Australia and South Africa 
are actually trade competitors 
and Australian exports of coal 
and precious minerals would 
profit by a .South. African 
boycott 

But, Mr Hawke said, 
Australia did not support 
sanctions “for the sake of 
being hairy-chested". 

“Sanctions are a means of 
acffevtng in this case the 
objective of a truly demo- 
cratic, liberal and. multiracial 
society in South Africa. 

“The evidence is already 
there that South Africa has 
responded, albeit very inad- 
equately, to pressure." 

Pretoria is “in its own 
straightjackei of prehistoric 
thinking”. It might be able to 
keep black people subjugated 
by terror, but it could not keep 
a white population from 
deciding that its best interests 
lay in change: 

While Mrs Thatcher argued 
that sanctions would hurt 
blacks, the blacks themselves 
and the frontline states re- 
jected that argument . 

He was asked whether 
Australia, facing the most 
- austere Budget since the war, 
would be prepared to provide 
financial support to the 
frontline states which would 
be most affected by sanctions. 

“There was some discussion 
of this in the Bahamas, specifi- 
cally on fueL We may have to 
think - about what could be 
done there. If it comes to the 
point that its actually done 
then dearly we would listen to

that the Commonwealth 
should “stake out the path" 
that the European Common 
Market, tire United States and 
others might follow. 

“1 don’t see the point of 
waiting for the EEC," Mr 
Wood said in a response to a 
suggestion that Mrs Thatcher 
might want to wait until a 
September meeting of that 
body to declare her intentions. 

Mr Wood said it was im- 
portant to note the London 
meeting of the seven leaders 
was taking place in tire context 


The second paragraph call- 
ed on Sonth Africa to im- 
plement five measures that 
won kl eventually lead to non- 
rarial, representatives gov- 
ernment. 

This included dismantling 
apartheid, ending the state of 
emergency, the release of Mr 
Nelson Mandela and otters, 
lifting tire ban on the African 
National Congress and a pro- 
cess of internal dialogue. 

Paragraph 7 details eight 
economic sanctions that amid 
be taken against tire country. 

Mr Wood said there was no 


question of all eight steps 
being taken at this time. 
“There could he a mix and 
maybe even others tint are not 
included in the list" 

He said that, m his visit to 
front-tine countries around 
South Africa, he had found the 
leaders in a sober and deter- 
mined mood, committed to do 
whatever is necessary despite 
the ham that may earn to 
their own countries. 

.• He said, they all showed 
‘Teafism and sophistication” 
on the results to them from 
sanctions against South Af- 
rica. Canada he said, would 
continue its 20 -year-old policy 
of attempting to increase tire 
independence of Sonth Af- 
rica’s neighbours. 

Mr Wood said he had 
gained tire impression no-one 
m tire Commonwealth would 
play “fast and loose" with 
British interests. “They re- 
cognise their values to Britain 
but I can say ft will not be 
enough for Britain to move 
roly a. bit" from its present 
position.

would find an escape route from her resolve on sanctions. 

Few clouds 
in budget 

Harare- — Zimbabweans 
were presented yesterday with 
an annual Budget showing 
little sign of anxiety over 
impending sanctions and es- 
calated South African military 
activity hanging over the 
southern African region (Jan 
Raath writes), 

- Defence spending rose dra- 
matically by 26 per cent to 
£242 million, but statements 
detailing planned expenditure 
attributed the bulk of this to 
some £39 million for aircraft 
procurement for the air force. ' 

Dr Bernard Chidzero, the 


Failure to reach agreement 
on sanctions against South 
Africa nt this weekend's 
Commonwealth mnu-smnmit 
in London could lead to a 
farther conference involving 
all Commonwealth nations at 
the end of September. 

There was evidence yester- 
day (hat there would be wide- 
spread support for such a 
move if it seemed the only way 
to avoid an irreversible split in 

the Commonwealth as the re- 
sult of faOnre to agree on sanc- 
tions. The suggestion was 
originally made on Jnly 4 in a 
comm unique issued from a 
conference of beads of govern- 
ment of Caribbean members of 
the Commonwealth.

on tire agenda for tire mini

pectation that it will be dis- 
cussed informally.

sons Group, said he thought a 
full-scale conference would be 
much preferable to nations 
leaving the Commonwealth 
because of a &Onre to agree 
this weekend. 

As part of the round of con- 
sultations which is fining 
place ahead of the summit 

*“ — . which b egins on Sim- 

RamphaL, 


the Commonwealth Secretary 
General, will have talks today 
■with Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign and Commonwealth 
Secretary. Both had separate 
meetings in London yesterday 
with Dr Chester Crocker, the 
US Assistant Secretary of 
State for African Affairs. 

Mr Fraser, in an address to 
the Royal Commonwealth So- 
ciety, said he hoped Mrs That- 
cher would use the outcome of 
Sir Geoffrey Howe’s visits to 
Southern Africa as an escape 
route from the views she had 
been expressing, because there 
were going to be enormous 
consequences, adverse to Brit- 
ish interests, if she did not do 
so. 

The present positions ad- 
opted by the United States and 
the United Kingdom would 
lead to such a loss of western 
influence in Southern Africa 
that they would give Mr Gor- 
bachov tiie greatest victory the 
Russians had had since the re- 
volution. Mr Fraser thought 
there was a reasonable chance 
that property devised sanc- 
tious would induce a change of 
heart in Sonth Africa. 

He advocated a breaking of 
all international air links with 
South Africa; a revue of consu- 
lar facilities; a tightening of 
financial restrictions, includ- 
ing a denial of trade credit and 
the freezing of South African 
bank accounts overseas; and a 
blocking of South Africa’s 
bulk exports of agricultural 
produce and minerals. 


Thatcher snubs union team 



percent; 
the previous year. Some 24 
per cent is accounted for by 
drift repayments and interest. 


By Nicholas Beeston 

Commonwealth and South 
African trade union leaders 
began a three-day emergency 
session yesterday to put pres- 
sure on Commonwealth lead- 
ers to accept sanctions against 
South Africa. 

Delegates from the Com- 
monwealth Trade Union Con- 
gress, representing 30 million 
workers from more than 40 
countries, will meet several 
Commonwealth leaders this 
week, but Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister, 
has refused on the grounds 
that she is “too busy". 

Mrs §hiriey Carr, the CTUC 
chairwoman and president of 
the Canadian Labour Con- 
gress, said Mrs Thatcher could 
have gained “vitally m> 
portant advice” by meeting 


the CTUC delegation, which 
includes three senior South 
African trade union leaders. 

“They would have told her 
unequivocally that black peo- 
ple want to see comprehensive 
sanctions vigorously enforced, 
to hasten the end of apartheid 
and to lead to the exercise of 
normal democratic freedom 
by all South Africans," she 
said. 

Yesterday the CTUC broke 
off its emergency meeting, 
hosted by the TUC, for a 
discussion with the Common- 
wealth Secretary-General, Mr 
Shridath RampfaaL 

At the meeting the General- 
Secretary of the Council of 
Unions of South Africa 
(Cosatu). Mr Phiroshaw 
Camay, who was detained by 
South African security forces 


at the start of the state of 
emergency in June, said: “We 
are looking to the rest of the 
world to protect freedom. If 
the world foils us then there is 
no other alternative but the 
path of violence ” 

Mr Ramphal told the dele- 
gates that abolishing apartheid 
was a priority, but he empha- 
sized that the Commonwealth 
should not foil apart because 
of differences over policy to- 
wards South Africa. 

Mr Camay and two repre- 
sentatives from Cosatu have 
compiled a report detailing 
the effects of the recent gov- 
ernment clam pd own in South 
Africa on the trade union 
movement It is estimated 
that hundreds of trade union 
members are still in detention 
in South Africa. 


ANC plans another meeting with US officials 


Lusaka (AP) — The chief 
spokesman for the African 
National Congress said yes- 
terday that further talks with 
American officials were plan- 
ned following the unprece- 
dented meeting between ANC 
leaders and the US Ambassa- 
dor to Zambia. 

Ambassador Paul Hare met 
three leaders of the guerrilla 
movement at their Lusaka 
headquarters on Wednesday 
in what US officials said was 
the first acknowledged contact 


at that level 

ANC spokesman, Mr Tom 
Sebina, declined to disclose 
details of the conversation but 
said the participants “agreed 
on contacts in the future." 

Mr Sebina would not com- 
ment on whether he felt the 
meeting reflected a change in 
American policy toward the 
ANC, which the administra- 
tion of President Reagan has 
previously depicted as a ter- 
rorist organization. 


• ADDIS ABABA; African 
leaders ended their a nnual 
summit conference in the 
Ethiopian capital last night by 
condemning Western powers 
for their co-operation with 
South Africa and suggesting 
voluntary reprisals against 
Britain for its opposition to 
sanctions (Reuter reports). 

The new chairman of the 
Organisation of African Unity 
(QAU), Mr Denis Sassou-Nu- 
guisso of Congo, declared the 
conference dosed at 10.50pm 


after a lengthy delay caused by 
last-minute debates on “US 
intervention in Angolan af- 
fairs,” American attacks on 
Libya last April and the civil 
war in Chad. 

The 50 OAU members took 
a more militant line on west- 
ern collaboration with Pre- 
toria than in previous meet- 
ings, but the practical actions 
proposed did not go beyond 
the voluntary economic mea- 
sures and a possible dip- 
lomatic break with Britain. 


Nigerian 
robbers 
face a 
slow death 

Lagos (Reuter) - Convicted 
armed robbers in Nigeria’s 
central Niger State are now 
being executed slowly by re- 
peated firing squad volleys, a 
state government official said 
yesterday. 

He confirmed a report in 
the National Concord news- 
paper that said convicts in the 
state were first shot in the 
ankles, with subsequent vol- 
leys directed higher at five- 
minute intervals until they 
died. 

Whales go 
back to sea 

Penh (Reuter) - Eighty 
pilot whales stranded on a 
west Australia beach at Au- 
gusta have returned to the sea 
after a rescue operation by 
volunteers who kept them 
alive by pouring buckets of 
water on them throughout the 
night. 

The whales were lifted on to 
trucks and driven to a nearby 
bay, where motorboats herded 
about 40 of them beyond a 
reef and the rest followed. 

Rights move 

Moscow (Reuter) — Soviet 
officials announced the cre- 
ation of a commission on 
human rights and humanitar- 
ian questions, but said they 
did not plan to upgrade the 
current low level of Jewish 
emigration to Israel and the 
West. 

Reindeer alert 

Oslo — Reindeer in south- 
ern Norway, where radio- 
active fall-out from the 
Chernobyl nuclear disaster 
was its most severe, are so 
contaminated that by the win- 
ter their meat is expected to 
contain 20 to 60 times the 
maximum annual exposure 
level for humans, the Direc- 
torate of Nature Conservation 
said. 

Fugitive dies 

Chur, Switzerland (Reuter) 
- Reinhaid Menches, aged 32, 
a West German wanted in 
connection with the murder 
on Tuesday of Liechtenstein's 
chief detective, died in hos- 
pital after being shot by Swiss 
police. 

Talks open 

Geneva — The eighth round 
of indirect talks between 
Afghanistan and Pakistan 
opened yesterday, with the- 
UN Mediator Mr Diego 
Cordovez, holding separate 
meetings with delegations. 

Lawyer dead 

Hamburg (Reuter) — Wolf- 
gang Bislry, aged 40, a West 
German state prosecutor, has 
died of gunshot wounds in- 
flicted by a suspected contract 
murderer who killed his wife 
and himself at Hamburg po- 
lice headquarters on Tuesday, 
police said . 

Telling tales 

Berne (Reuter) - Fritz 
Mathys Weist, a Swiss his- 
torian, has said that folk hero 
William Tell could not have 
used a crossbow to shoot an 
apple off his son's head be- 
cause crossbows were virtually 
unknown here in the 13th 
century. 


PARLIAMENT JULY 31 1986 


Foreign Secretary’s mission 


Government still wants negotiated settlement 



yiU* i 



SOUTH AFRICA 

The Government’s determina- 
tion to continue to work for a 
negotiated solution to the prob- 
lem of South Africa was ex- 
pressed by * Lady . Young, 
Minister of State for Foreign 
and Commonwealth Affairs, m 
a statement on . the Foreign 
Secretary's mission to southern 
Africa. > 

Lady Young- was assailed by 
Labour' aod Alliance peers for 

S 'ving no . indication of the 
overn mem's new policy 
following the foilure of Sir 
Geoffrey Howe's talks in South 
Africa. 

For the Labour Party, Lord 
Elwyn-Jooes said that the state- 
ment was deeply disappointing, 
containing * no positive 
proposals. 

LadySeear. leader of the Liberal 
peers, called the statement to- 
tally inadequate and asked that 
if any member state threatened 
to leave the Commonwealth. 
Parliament should be recalled. 
Lady Young called the latter 
suggestion hypothetical, and 
said that recall of Parliament 
was a matter for other 
authorities. . 

She -said that Sir Geoffrey 
Howe's personal standing had in 
no way been diminished by his 
experience. 

Further measures would be 
on the agenda for the Common- 
wealth meeting on Sunday but 
she added; There is no auto- 
matic! ry that something further 
wilt happen. 

That, she added . was an 
objective statement of reality, 
not a threat. . 

In her statement. Lady Young 
gave an account of the Foreign 
Secretary’s meetings. She said 
that his meetings with leaders of 
South Africa's neighbouring 
slates had brought out the 
serious concern felt by most of 
South Africa's neighbours about 
the potential consequences for 
their countries of a policy of 
general economic sanctions 
against South Afri&' and the 
clangers of escalating confronta- 
tion in the r^on. 


Sir Geoffrey had made dear 
to the South African Govern- 
ment the EEC view that there 
was urgent need for fun- 
damental but peaceful change in 
South Africa, leading to the total 
abolition of apartheid. 

In this connection (she said) 
be stressed that in order to 
establish the necessary con- 
ditions for peaceful dialogue it 
was essential to release Nelson 
Mandela and other political 
leaders and to unban the African 
National Congress and other 
political parties. 

Sir Geoffrey was able in this 
way to convey to the. South 
African Government the deep 
concern felt by the United 
Kingdom, the Community and 
western conn tries generally on 
this matter. The Smith African 
Government can be in no doubt 
of the strength of this concern. 
He regrets that the responses he 
received from the South African 
Government were not such as to 
enable him to report progress of 
the kind which he sought. 

He is conveying the outcome 
to our Community partners and 
will also be able to give his 
assessment of the visit to the 
review meeting of the seven 
Commonwealth heads of Gov- 
ernment which begins in Lon- 
don on August 3. 

The Government will con- 
tinue to make every effort to 
work for a negotiated solution to 
the problem of South Africa. 

Lord Ehryn Jones described the 
statement as disappointing and 
said it contained no positive 
proposals on how to dal with 
the critical situation affecting 
Britain, her relations with the 
Commonwealth, the United 
States and the world at large. 
There was no indication of 
urgency. 

What specific proposals (he 
asked) will the Government be 
putiing-to the mini-summit next 
Sunday if that conference is not 
io end in disarray? 

The Government should 
already be publicly giving a 
committal to proceeding with 
effective measures by way of 
comprehensive sanctions. 

What efforts would be made 


during Britain's presidency of 
the EEC towards implementing 
rigorous measures against South 
Africa if it refused io meet the 
gravity of the situation? 

Should not the Government 
now join its friends and allies in 
the Commonwealth, the EEC 
and. as seemed possible now, in 
the United States, in proposing 
mandatory sanctions against 
South Africa in the Security 
Council? 

Lady Seear CL) said the 
statement was inadequate in the 



Ehtyn-Jones: Statement 
deeply disappointing 
face of the increasing bloodshed 
in South Africa, the arrogant 
regime there, and in the light of 
the anger and anxiety 
developing in Britain. 

Time is running out (she 
said). Apartheid is getting worse 
and worse. 11016 is not on our 
side. It is not on the side of the 
moderate leaders of the blacks 
without whose leadership there 
is no hope for anything other 
than a bloodbath. 

Talk of a negotiated solution 
had led to nothing at all and the 
Foreign Secretary, to have any 
hope of success, would have to 
be seen to be negotiating from a 
basis of strength and with a 
determination to take positive 
measures. Why should the 
South African Government take 
any more notice in the future 
than they had in the past if the 
Foreign Secretary continued to 
negotiate from a position of 
weakness? 

If. during the recess, any 


Commonwealth member were 
10 say they were leaving the 
Commonwealth, Parliament 
should be recalled to discuss the 
matter before the 
Commonwealth broke up. 

Lady Young said that at the 
Commonwealth meeting on 
Sunday, consideration of the 
case for further measures was an 
item on the agenda. So, too. was 
it in the EEC And it would not 
be right for her to anticipate 
what would come out of that 
meeting. 

A range of measures was 
already being implemented with 
Britain's EEC and 
Commonwealth partners. 

There is no automaticity (she 
said) that there will be 
something further that wff] 
happen, but Sir Geoffrey Howe 
has said in the Commons that if 
his mission did not procure 
tangible and substantial 
progress, then agreement . on 
further measures is likely to be 
necessary. This is an' objective 
statement of reality. It is not a 
threat. 

It would be unwise to 
comment on whether any 
country might leave the 
Commonwealth. A recall of 
Parliament was not a matter for 
her. 

The Cabinet was unanimous 
in its support for the policy that 
the Prime Minister and Sir 
Geoffrey Howe bad pursued, 
that is to say to try to achieve an 
end to apartheid by negotiation. 
Lord Sonnies (C) said the Gov- 
ernment had been discussing for 
many weeks now with the other 
main trading partners of South 
Africa what action all should 
agree to take. 

Lady Young said discussions 
have been going on both with 
EEC partners and with 
Commonwealth partners stem- 
ming from the Nassau meeting 
of the Commonwealth heads o? 
government. 

Lord Brockway (Lab) said both 
the Foreign Secretary and the 
Prime Minister must fed utterly 
humiliated by what bad oc- 
curred. 

The Foreign Secretary was 
given a colossal snub. Limited 
sanctions would foil. All history 


had shown the ability of govern- 
ments when foreign action was 
taken to adjust themselves to it. 

There would have to be 
intervention by the United Na- 
tions if, ultimately, apartheid 
was to be overthrown. 

Lady Yoimg said she was sur- 
prised he should feel that mak- 
ing a further effort to negotiate 
with the very people who were 
in a position to implement a 
change in apartheid was either 
humiliating or not worthwhile. 
The Government did not see it 
in those terms. 

Sanctions were not as easy to 
apply or. as was sometimes 
implied, the kind of easy policy 
to bring about the changes the 
Government would like to see. 
Lord Paget of Northampton 

(Lab): We should not be 
conspiring to wreck the only 
economy in Africa that works. 
Who is going to pay for the 
victims of this? Our Prime 
Minister has behaved with ut- 
most courage. I hope her cour- 
age will not leave her because if 
it does millions win die. 

Lady Young: We have consis- 
tently argued against general 
economic sanctions. Experience 
has shown they do not work and 
any further measures in addi- 
tion to those the UK. has 
implemented have to be consid- 
ered in the light of that 
experience. 

We believe all should weigh 
the effects of general economic 
sanctions on South Africa, her 
neighbours and on the UK 
carefully against the supposed 
benefits. We believe the balance 
is against such sanctions. 

On the effects of sanctions on 
the front line states, we are 
considering the possibility of 
further assistance, but clearly 
the UK is not in a position to 
offset the effect of economic 
sanctions on the from line 
states. Thai - underlines the im- 
portance of seeking a solution 
through dialogue and not 
through confrontation. 

The mandate that Sir Geof- 
frey Howe was given at The 
Hague meeting has nearly two 
months to run. There is no need 
for instant decisions.

Space advisers 
urge curb on 
commercial 
use of shuttle 


From Moitsin All, Washington 


A Cabinet council majority 
is recommending that Presi- 
dent Reagan adopt a plan to 
ban most commercial and 
foreign satellites from future 
space shuttle flights, a White 
House spokesman said yes- 
terday. 

The plan, according to The 
Washington Post, is part of a 
new initiative to spur develop- 
ment of a private rocket 
industry, ft would effectively 
end Nasa’s long-standing ef- 
forts to promote the shuttle as 
an economical self-sufficient 
space transport system. 

Under the proposal, virtu- 
ally all private communica- 
tions satellites would be 
barred from future shuttle 
launches, leaving the shuttle 
to carry almost exclusively 
military and scientific pay- 
loads when flights resume in 
1988. 

The newspaper said that of 
the 43 Nasa contracts to 
launch commercial -and for- 
eign payloads up to 1994, only 
about six or eight would end 
up on the shuttle if the plan is 
adopted by Mr Reagan - there 
does exist, however, an option 
for a more gradual phasing- 
out of commercial customers. 

One immediate con- 
sequence of the plan, if ap- 
proved. would be to deprive 
Nasa of about $850 million in 
revenue it wonld receive from 
the American Satellite Com- 
pany and other commercial 
customers. 

These firms have argued 
that barring them from US- 
subsidized shuttle flights 
would leave them with no 
choice but to turn to the West 
European Ariane rocket or the 
Chinese Long March rocket 

Meanwhile, a White House 
spokesman emphasized that 
Mr Reagan had been given 
many differing views about 
whether a new $2.8 billion 


(about £1.9 billion) shuttle 
orbiter should be built to 
replace the Challenger, which 
exploded soon after blast-off 
on January 28 falling its crew 
of seven. He said the President 
was expected to take the 
decision soon. 


• British proposaltA group of 
British design experts ‘of air- 
craft ejector seats have 
submitted a proposal to Nasa 
for their use in manned space- 
craft (Pearce Wright writes). 

Nasa has been studing the 


feasibility of an ejector escape 
system for its shuttle pro- 
gramme since the Challenger 
disaster in January. 

Even though the tape 
recording of the final con- 
versation between the Chal- 
lenger astronauts and ground 
control, which was released 
earlier this week, showed that 
the crew’s commander knew 
something had gone wrong, 
there was no suggestion that 
anyone might have escaped. 

But some space experts 
have suggested that in a 
serious but less catastrophic 
accident, ejector seats could be 
of value.

Miami (Renter) - Pas- 
sengers returning to port yes- 
terday on the fire-damaged 
crease liner Emerald Seas ibid 
of a panicky stampede to 
lifeboats, missing life preserv- 
ers, frightful screams from 

befaw decks aBd heroic deeds 
of crew members. 

Their holiday cruise turned 
into a nightmare on Wednes- 
day when au explosion and fire 
flared deep within the ship. 
Injuring 17 people and forcing 
almost a thousand passengers 
to flee in lifeboats. 

“For a few minutes I 
thought we were aB going to 
die, - " said Mrs Rebecca Gor- 
don, aged 46, a passenger of 
Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Mrs Gordon and her daugh- 
ter, Melissa, and 11, woe 
thro wn from then- beds by die 
concussion of tike blast me 
deck below them. Within sec- 
onds smoke began seeping into 
their cabin. Guided by a crew 


member, they managed to 
escape by crawling on their 
hands and knees through 
smoke-filled halls packed with 
screaming passengers. 

“People were trampling 
each other. Children and old 
ladies woe being shored 
aside,” Miss- Karin Lohrer, 
aged 23,-of Fort Min, Smith 
Carolina, another passenger, 
said. 

Passengers’ tales of panic 
differed sharply from initial 
statements by the ship’s own- l 
ers. Eastern Crtnse Lines. But 
the owners said an investiga- 
tion was under way. 

Mr Bernard Chabot, presi- 
dent of Eastern, said there was 
no ntdkatioa of sabotage. 

The company offered pas- 
sengers a 50 per cent refund or 
a free cruise in compensation 
for their aborted voyage. They 
paid between $500 (£336) and 
$1,000 dollars for the trip. 


Minutes before a midnight 
deadline elapsed on Wednes- 
day Japanese microchip ma- 
nufacturers agreed to increase 
prices of their products in tbe 
United States, in the face a 
threat by American authori- 
ties to impose duty if no agree- 
ment could be reached. 

The settlement is the climax 
of a battle that has raged for 
months between the Japanese, 
their American counterparts 
and the US Department of 
Commerce. The Japanese 
were accused of dumping mic- 
rochips on the US market and 
undermining the American 
electronics and computer in- 
dustries. 


8 per cent of the semi- 
conductor market in Japan. 

Mr Baldrige said: “The 
Japanese have agreed to ac- 
cept more memory chips by 
opening their market. There 
will be benchmarks as to how 
they are progressing in that 
area. It won’t be hard to find 
out. It’s not something they 
can run and hide from.” 

US semiconductor manu- 
facturers have been particu- 
larly nervous in recent months 
as the electronics industry 
remained in recession. The 


computer industry, one of the 
principal users of microchips, 
has experienced a drop in 
sales. A recent report pre- 
dicted a drop in the US 
computer sales this year of 17 
per cent to $14 billion. 

Many computer manufac- 
turers have had to shed labour 
and dose their factories. Semi- 
conductor manufacturers 
have suffered the same fate. 
The British microchip com- 
pany, Inmos, which is owned 
by Thom-Emi, closed its 
manufacturing arm in Colo- 
rado Springs, made about 400 
people redundant and wrote- 
off £45 million. 

It said: “This recovery has 
been much slower than fore- 
cast and it has become appar- 
ent that the substantial in- 
crease in worldwide capacity 
will exceed demand over the 
next two or three years”. 


Details of the US-Japanese 
agreement were disclosed yes- 
terday by US Commerce Sec- 
retary, Mr Malcolm Baldrige. 
“The Japanese have agreed 
not to dump in the United 
States, not to dump in third 
countries that could ship to 
the United States and open up 
the market for memory chips 
in Japan, which we feel has- 
been dosed to US exports.” he 
said. 

Implementation of the sec- 
ond part of the agreement 
might still prove a problem for 
tbe US. Japanese manufac- 
turers — and consumers — are 
notorious for buying Japanese 
unless a foreign product is 
obviously superior. American 
manufacturers only command 


The scheme suggested by 
Martin Baker Engineering, a 
film based at Denham, 
Buckinghamshire, uses a tech- 
nique designed for the Royal 
Air Force’s Vulcan V-botnber. 


The central crew member in a 
row of three seats ejects 
through his hatch. The other 
two men till their seats to- 
wards the same hole and are 
blasted ouL 


If a similar idea was 
adopted for the shuttle pro- 
gramme, it would mean build- 
ing three emergency escape 
hatches in tbe next shuttle, 
Orbiter, and redesigning the 
seating arrangements. 


Seaga rocked by 


local elections 


By Jeremy Taylor 


The possibility of early 
general elections has become 
an issue in Jamaica after a 
massive opposition victory to 
Tuesday's local government 
elections. 

Mr Edward Seaga, the 
Prime Minister and leader iff 
the Jamaica Labour Party 
(JLP), conceded defeat late on 
Tuesday ztightBy then the 
opposition People's National 
Party (PNP) of Mr Michael 
Manley, the former prime 
minister, had won a dear 
majority of 99 seats to 39, with 
49 still to be declared. 

The PNP was expected to 
take 57 to 60 per cent of the 
vote. 


The load elections had been 
postponed several times, and 
were the first chance Jamai- 
cans had to comment on Mr 
Seaga's record since 1980, 
when the JLP was swept into 
power promising “deliver- 
ance” from Mr Manley's 
democratic socialism. 


had no parliamentary pres- 
ence since. 

The drastic austerity mea- 
sares which Mr Seaga em- 
braced have sparked several 
periods of acute protest, 
including serious liberals in 
January and Jane last year. 

But on May 1, Mr Seaga 
announced the firrt optimistic 
and expansionary Badge* in 
years. 

He suggested that economic 
recovery was well mider way 
and ostentatiously defied the 
financial orthodoxy of the 
International Monetary Fund 
and the World Bank, on whose 
largesse and austere pofiries 
economic recovery had been 
based. 


Taking advantage of early 
firm action and American 
support, Mr Seaga called a 
snap election in late 1983, 
which he won with barely a 
vote cast against him. 

The PNP, claiming that an 
understanding on electoral re- 
form had been violated, boy- 
cotted the election, and has 


Sceptics argued that Mr 
Seaga was hoping that his 
Budget would ensure success 
in this week's voting and 
prepare the way for a third 
general election victory which 
would take him well into the 
1990s and leave plenty of tmie 
for further work on recovery. 

Mr Manley, somewhat mel- 
lowed and chastened since his 
socialist enthusiasms of the 
1970s, had finely described 
Tuesday's voting as a referen- 
dum on the Government’s 
record, and is now calling more 
fondly than ever for general 
elections.

Inter-communal violence growing 

Gandhi under fire for ‘illiberal 
acts’ of Indian Government 


Just as Mr Rajiv Gandhi 
prepares to leave for London, 
where he will be the most 
influential Commonwealth 
leader trying to put Britain in 
the dock for its policy towards 
South Africa, the Indian Gov- 
ernment itself is accused of 
acting illiberally. 

Indian society, too, is being 
criticised for a growing wave 
of inter-communa! 
intolerance: 

For good measure recent 
government actions have 
shown a high level of incom- 
petence in the upper reaches of 
the Indian power structure. 

The Government was ac- 
cused of a “black act” when it 
passed a Bill on Wednesday 
empowering it to refuse to 
publish official tribunal re- 
ports. if it considered it con- 
trary to the national interest. 

Opposition MPs walked out 
of the session of the Lok 
Sabha, the lower house of the 
Indian Parliament, when they 
failed to force the Govern- 
ment to publish the report of 
an inquiry into the assassina- 
tion of Mrs Indira Gandhi, the 
former prime minister. 

Professor Madhu Danda- 
vate, parliamentary leader of 
the opposition Janata party, 
who headed the walk-oul, 
described the Bill as “un- 
democratic and illegal". He 
said it was dangerous to leave 


From Michael Hamlyn, Delhi 

the executive to decide what tion did not a; 
was in the public interest 
The day before. Mr Gan- 
dhi's Government was ac- 
cused of attempting to create a 
dangerously undemocratic sit- 
uation when it tried to take 
powers to override state gov- 
ernments and legislate in all 
matters in areas declared 


to Jammu 
and Kashmir, which has a 
serious border problem with 
Pakistan. 

The Times of India, which 
opposes the Government, said 
yesterday: “Petroleum prices, 
the territorial transfers in Pun- 
jab, appointments of senior 


Killing s in renewed Pwyab violence 

A Sikh bank chairman and a 70, chairman of the Moga 
Hindu shopkeeper have been Land Mortagage B an k , was

extremists in renewed violence shopkeeper, Mr Nam Lai,

“protected" in border states. 

At a meeting with par- 
liamentary opposition leaders 
Mr Gandhi was told that the 
powers he was proposing were 
not only overbearing but un- 
necessary since they were 
already provided by the 
Constitution, though with 
greater democratic safeguards. 

With an angry eye on a 
junior minister in the Law 
Ministry who was accom- 
panying him and who had not 
apparently appreciated this 
point, Mr Gandhi withdrew 
the measure. 

But it was pointed out 
yesterday that even this was 
not quite right, since the 
specific clause in the Constitu- 


offidals and diplomats, im- 
portant economic policies — 
one thing after another tes- 
tifies to an amateurishness 
that everyone wishes the Gov- 
ernment would outgrow." 

The Government fumbled 
earlier this year in bringing 
before Parliament a Bill 
relieving Muslim men of the 
burden of paying alimony to 
their divorced wives. But the 
Bill now passed has led to the 
Government being accused of 
pandering to Muslim com- 
munalism. 

The Government is accused 
often enough of pandering to 
Hindu communalism, and 
commentators say that Mrs 
Gandhi “played the Hindu 


card" in trying to supress the 
Sikh agitation in Punjab. 

Recent events in Gujarat, 
where a Hindu p rocession was 
allowed to march through a 
predominantly Muslim area 
and so sparked long days of 
lethal rioting, are named on 
the Government 

In yesterday morning's pa- 
pers, to take but one day’s 
news, deaths from inter- 
communal incidents are re- 
ported from Darjeeling, In- 
dore. and Patna, and areas of 
Delhi were still under curfew 

Mr Kuklip Nayar, the 
distinguished columnist, who 
is also a correspondent fbr The 
Times, writes in an article in 
The Tribune, an F«gii«h lan- 
guage newspaper published 
from Chandigarh, the capital 
of Punjab and Haryana, that 
“no longer do die people 
belonging to one community 
feel that it is their duty as 
civilised human beings to 
ensure that the susceptibilities 
of the members of other 
communities are not hurt". 

Mr Nayar, who is himself a 
Punjabi Hindu, writes that the 
Puqjab situation has affected 
the Hindu psyche. “The 
majority community has dev- 
eloped a siege mentality," he 
says. He adds that “the 
Government's attitude to 
communalism betrays com- 
placency."

Zimbabwe customs men lose appeal 


Harare - The Zimbabwe 
Supreme Court dismissed an 
appeal yesterday against the 
continued detention without 
trial of two white senior 
customs officers alleged to 
have spied for South Africa 
(Jan Raath writes). 

The decision ends six 


months of legal battles since 
the arrest on February 22 of 
Mr John Austin, aged 36, and 
Mr Kenneth Harper, aged 43. 

Five court rulings that their 
detention was illegal and three 
subsequent release orders 
have been followed by their re- 
detention 


The courts have ruled that 
the reasons given for their de- 
tentions were flimsy 
But yesterday, Mr Justice 
Enock Dumbutshena, the 
Chief Justice, said reasons for 
the latest detention order on 
June 26 were “sufficiently 
detailed".

Era ends 
in British 
Columbia 

From A Correspondent 
Vancouver 

The 34-year Bennett politi- 
cal dynasty in British Colum- 
bia will come to an end next 
week when Mr Bill Vander 
Zalm takes over as Social 
Credit Party leader and Pre- 
mier of the province. 

He quit active politics be- 
fore the 1983 election after 
serving in several ministries 
after his first electoral victory 
in 1975. 

Mr Vander Zalm. with 
grassroots support but not that 
of the party hierarchy, led 
from the first of four ballots in 
the leadership campaign that 
attracted 22 candidates. 

Mr Bennett announced his 
retirement this summer after 
serving as Premier since 1 975. 
He took over the party from 
his father, Mr W A C Bennett, 
in 1972 following defeat by the 
New Democratic Party. 

The elder Mr Bennett 
founded the coalition Liberal- 
Conservative Party as a means 
of bolding bade the Socialist 
Party. 

Mr Vander Zalm, aged 52, 
is a native of the Netherlands 
who was brought to Canada at 
the age of 12. He built up a 
multi-million nursery and 
gardening export company 
Since the party's term does 
not expire until 1988, the new 
Premier plans to seek a seat in 
a by-election before October. 


Bush plan 
for summit 
rejected 
by Jordan 

Amman (AFP) — Mr 
George Bush, the US Vice- 
President. met Jordanian 
. leaders here yesterday for 
Y; sr ?. talks which mainly focused on 
efforts to revive the flagging 
&&K Middle East peace process, 
authoritative sources said. 

But despite Mr Bosh's en- 
coaragemenf, the sources said 
the Jordanian side rejected 
any plan for a summit between 
King Husain and Mr Shimon 
Peres, the Israeli Prime Min- 
ister. similar to last week’s 
meeting between the Israeli 
leader and King Hassan of 
Morocco. 

Mr Bush conferred yes- 
terday with Mr Zeid Rifai, the 
Jordanian Prime Minister, 
and Crown Prince Hassan Ibn 
Total- He met King Husain on 
Wednesday evening shortly 
after arriving from Israel for a 
four-day official visit 
Mr Bush said on Wednes- 
day in Jerusalem that he 
would be taking ideas to 
Amman that Mr Peres asked 
him to pass on to King Husain. 

But Jordanian sources said 
Amman would torn down any 
separate peace deal with Is- 
rael. Jordan would only talk 
with Israel at an international 
Middle East conference. 

• JERUSALEM: Mr W3- 
Uam Casey, the US Central 
InteHigence Agency (CIA) 
director, visited Israel this 
month. Israeli security sources 
said (Reuter reports). 

Israeli military censorship 
prevented Renters from re- 
porting the subject of Mr 
Careys talks. 

A US television network 
reported last night that he 
visited Israel and Syria in a 
bid to prevent war between 
them. 

There has been tension 
between the two countries over 
Syria's military construction 
in southern Lebanon, its re- 
ported acquisition of Soviet 
SS21 surface-to-surface mis- 
siles and its backing for Arab 
guerrillas, who have claimed 
responsibility for a recent 
series of attacks on Israeli 
targets. 

The Israeli security sources 
confirmed Mr Carey’s visit but 
said the intelligence chief was 
a regular visitor. 

Syria denied yesterday that 
Mr Casey had visited that 
country. 

• Border marked: An Egyp- 
tian border marker went np on 
a hillside in the disputed beach 
resort of Taba yesterday 
morning as negotiators were 
carrying out an on-site inspec- 
tion of the area (Ian Murray 
writes). 

The marker was put np -by 
the Egyptian delegation, who 
had arrived in Taba first- It 
was removed after protests by 
the tardy Israeli delegation, 
who desorbed die incident as 
“psychological warfare” in the 
last stages of the marathon 
four year long argument over 
who should have s o ve r e ignl y 
over the tiny area. 

After the inspection of the 
700-yard-long beach the two 
teams retired to the nearby 
Israeli resort of EQat to dis- 
cuss how to measure the 
disputed area 


Wellington budget 
hits tax dodgers 


Richard Long, Wellington 

Mr Roger Douglas, the New But Mr Douglas once again 

earned the displeasure oftbe 
country's Federation of La- 
bour, which said there was 
nothing in the Budget for the 
worker. 


Zealand Finance Minister, last 
night presented to Parliament 
a Budget which promised to 
close lax loopholes and thwart 
company tax evasion. 

He did not give de tails of 
the proposed measures, which 
he claimed could save mil- 
lions of dollars a year in 
evaded tax. 

But be said the new tax rules 
would be modelled on Ca- 
nadian legislation to bring the 
tax treatment of certain 
expenditure and income clo- 
ser to normal accounting 
treatment. 

He also ruled out the future 
use of special partnerships as a 
lax dodge — a move dubbed 
Draconian by some business 
sectors — and warned that 
legislation would be in- 
troduced to ban business ex- 
pense deductions unless bus- 
inesses declared a profit 

First-year depreciation 
allowances of 25 per cent on 
new plants and equipment are 
scrapped, except for farming 
and fishing equipment but 
these will also go in 1988. 

But while the changes were 
disliked by some sectors, the 
country's Chamber of Com- 
merce, Manufacturers Federa- 
tion and Employers Feder- 
ation, which have supported 
the thrust of the free-market 
Minister’s reforms, gave the 
Budget their approval 


For the man in the street the 
main features were a 70 cent 
(24p) rise for a packet of 20 
cigarettes, taking the price to 
SNZ2.50 (87p) a packet, and a 
6 cent a litre drop in the price 
of petrol, to 76 cents a litre, 
premium grade. But the petrol 
pnee drop will be a two- 
month wonder as the Govern- 
ment’s VAT-style goods and 
services tax, to be applied 
from October, will increase 
the price to 84 cents. 

Mr Douglas said the price of 
new cars would increase by 5 
per cent under the expenditure 
tax, although previously the 
Government had said sales 
tax would be adjusted to 
prevent price fluctuations. 

The most dramatic feature 
of the Budget was a plan to re- 
finance $NZ7J2 billion (£15 
billion) of the debt problems 
of the New Zealand meat and 
dairy boards and the so-called 
. think big" projects built dur- 
ing the government of Mr 
Robert Muldoon. 

Mr Douglas described the 
of the projects on die 
taxpayer as “mad", “crazy” 
and “mind-boggling".

A special- commission sp- 
irited by the Philippine 
__ pimne Court recommended 
yesterday that 26 people, 
including the former military . 
Chief of StafE be retried ra- 
the 1983 minder of the then 
opposition leader, Benigno 
Aquino* the husband of Presi- 
dent Aquino. 

In a 63-page report, the 
three-member commission re- 
commended the Supreme 
Court declare a mis-triai and 
reopen the case, because out- 
side pressure ted to the mass 
acquittal. 

ft said there was “adequate 
credible evidence'’ to show 
that the three-man trial court 
and' the prosecution “acted 
under the compulsion of some 
pressure beyond, their 
capacity to resist” when it- 
acquitted the former armed 
forces Chief of Staf£ General 
Fabian Ver, 24 soldiers and a 
civilian last December . 

The ten-month trial last 
year was “vitiated by lack of 
due process” which prevented 
the prosecution from present- 
ing -all available evidence 
against the accused and 
“predetermined the final out- 
come” the commissioners 
concluded. 

During one month of public 
hearings, the chief prosecutor. 


from Keith Dalton, Manila « 

Mr Manuel Herrera, alleged 
that the former president, Mr 
Ferdinand Marcos called toe 
chief judge and the prosecut- 
ing panel to the presidential 
palace and suggested that they 
stages mock trial. 

Mr Herrera also testified to 
toe .commission, headed by 
Mr Coniado Vasquez, a re- 
tired judge, that Mr Marcos 
monitored the proceedings by 
dosed circuit television and 
seve ral tim es telephoned toe 

the 

trial. 

The commission's recom-

mendafions upheld a petition 
filed by a group of prominent 
Filipinos ' that a nrisdrial be 
declared anda new trial called. 

The Supreme Court’s de- 
cision will be announced after 
toe prosecution and defence 
ponds receive comes of the 
commission’s report and re-, 
spond to it within 10 days, Mr 
Gandio Teehankee, the Chief 
Justice, said. 

Corat officials said the 
recommendations of the three 
commissioners — all hand- 
picked by the Supreme Court 
jostiees— would weigh heavily 
m favour ofa re-trimdedskm 
by the High Court. - * 

Mr Aquino was murdered 
at Manila airport in August 
1983 on his retain from toree 
years self-imposed exile in the 
united States. Before that he 
was held for almost eight years 
under military detention. 

Before his death, he was 
regarded as Mr Marcos’s chief

His slaying triggered mass 
protests which culminated in 
February’s civilian-backed 
military revolt, toppled the 
20-year Marcos regime, and 
swept Mis Aquino to power. 

Former General Ver, who 
was charged as an aocemory in 
the case, fled with Mr Marcos 
to exile in Hawaii.

US official 
happy with 

Chinese 
arms talks 

From Robert Grieves 

Peking 

Dr Kenneth Adelman, the 
Director of the US Anns 
Control and Disarmament 
Agency yesterday hailed . 
China’s “greater involve- 
ment” in arms control issues. 

Dr Adelman arrived in 
Peking on Tuesday with a 
delegation of US arms control 
specialists, for talks with the 
Chinese on US disarmament 
initiatives. He last visited 
Peking in 1984. In 198S a 
Chinese delegation went to 
Washington. Last week Soviet 
officials visited Peking to put 
their care in toe disarmament 
debate. 

Dr Adelman Said he found 
the Chinese to be “quite open, • 
frank and direct” and more 
interested in discussing arms 
control issues than at any 
previous time. 

But he admitted that he did 
not detect any change in 
China's continuing opposition 
to the US Strategic Defence 
Initiative (SDI). 

Dr Adelman said: “We are 
at the beginning stage of re- 
search, and the strategic re- 
sults are not yet dear. But I be- 
lieve SDI is here to stay.” 

He also briefed the Chinese 
on the contents of a tetter 
President Reagan sent to Mr 
Gorbachov on nuclear 
disarmament.

Malaysia's general elec- 
tions uenoafly are devoid of 
surprises: the Government

opposition tries to whittle 
away as much ttf its huge 
official majority us it can. It 
has always beat an unequal 
contest. 

The rating coatitioa has won 
by at least a two-thuds major- 
ity in every previous election 
except in 19ti> when it won by 
61 per cent. 

The general election tomor- 
row and Sunday is not ex- 
pected to cause an upset. At 
stake are 177 partiameutary 
and 351 state assembly seats. 
Elections also are befog held 
for .11 of Jh& - I? t -state 
assemblies.

the urban-based Democratic 
Action Party. 

Electoral swings in Malay*

issues. It is toe rural vote that 
keeps toe coatitioa in power

Datnk Seri Dr Mahathir 
Mohamad, the Prime Min- 
ister. He brooks no opposition, 
even from his Cabinet min-

Jakarta sets up team 
to spend aid faster 


Jakarta (Reuter) - Indo- 
nesia has a set up a special 
. ministerial team to solve one 
of its most pressing problems 
— how to spend aid money 
more quickly. 

The group has been an- 
nounced after complaints 
from aid donas and the 
World Bank about slow im- 
plementation of development 
projects. 

According to the World 
Bank, Indonesia had spent less 
than half of its oustandmg 
Bank aid of S7.44 billion 
(about £10 billion) up to 
December. Total loans from 
donor governments and inter- 
national tending agencies 
amounted to $24.64 billion, of 
which $9.56 bitiion had not 
been spent, it said. 

In its annual report on 
Indonesia the Bank said that 
spending was well below the 
worldwide average. 

Jakarta ha$ r Mamed the 
delays on land acquisition 
problems, budgeting and fi- 


nance procedures, finding 
suitable sub-contractors, poor 
management and red tape. It 
says that the new team, which 
is headed by the minister in 
charge of administrative re- 
form, Dr Saleh Afi£ would be 
able to cut through die delays. 

“It may make on-the-spot 
decisions and bypass time- 
consuming aud complicated 
procedures which delay the 
implementation of a project," 
the Cabinet Secretary, Mr 
Munfiono, said. 

Indonesia has been hard hit 
by foiling oil prices, from 
which it gets 70 per cent of its 
foreign exchange: It was 
forced to cut its development 
budget 

Aid projects indude new 
rubber plantations, dams, 
roads, bousing, resettlement 
and electrification schemes. 

At their latest meeting in 
The Hague in June, 14 aid 
donors, including the World 
Bank, pledged a total of SZ5 
billion in assistance this year.

A large poster hangs on the wall of 
a second-floor flat m a quiet street 
lined with flowering oleanders La 
the middle of Palermo. It is an 
invitation to attend a public 
debate in Monreale, a city that 
contains the greatest and most 
splendid of the Norman mosaic 
churches. The date on the poster is 
February 1981; the title of the 
debate Mafia Oggi — Mafia 
Today. 

There were four speakers: 
Rocco Chinnici, a magistrate, 
famous for his insistence that 
ordinary Sicilians should resist the 
manipulations of the Mafia; Pio 
La Torre, a Communist deputy, 
who proposed a law permitting 
magistrates to look into the bank 
accounts of people suspected of 
laundering Mafia funds; Gaetano 
Costa. Palermo's attorney-general, 
willing signatory to the arrest 
warrants of wanted Mafiosi ; and 
Umberto Santini, director of the 
Centro Siciliano di document- 
al i one Giuseppe Jmpastato, a 
research centre on die Mafia, 
where the poster hangs. Of the 
four men, only Santini is alive 


Palermo, the drugs 
capital of the world 


today. He says he owes this to the 
fad that, alone of the four, he has 
“no power and no money". 

Chinnici, La Torre and Costa, 
who had, if not precisely power, at 
least a public presence and a voice 
loud enough to earn the enmity of 
the Mafia, all died within a few 
months of each other, shot down 
in the streets of Palermo. Santini is 
one of a small and brave collection 
of Sicilians, particularly in Pa- 
lermo. the undisputed centre of 
Mafia activities, to be conducting 
private battles to check the still 
formidible power of the Mafia 
cosche, or families. 

His wife Anna is a member of 
the .Association of Sicilian Women 
against the Mafia, formed by the 
widows of some of the murdered 
officials. Like the others. Santini is 
watching the Palermo Mafia trial 
— which opened in February and 
is the largest trial of Mafia 
suspects ever held — with interest, 


though also with some scepticism. 
“What is important is that the trial 
is happening, and seen to be 
happening," he says. “ It is the 
first time in Sicilian history that 
the state has shown that it intends 
to deal with the Mafia." 

In Sicily they call it the nurd- 
processor. the maxi-triaL There are 
474 men on trial, 100 of whom 
have not been caught but are being 
tried in absentia. Among those 
captured is Luciano Liggio, who at 
1 9 was the youngest Mafia chief in 
Sidlian history and rose to be- 
come the most feared leader in the 
modem Mafia. Liggio looks like a 
wise and ageing professor of 
linguistics at some northern 
university, with a cold stare above 
a peppery, dark beard. 

Then there are the Greco broth- 
ers, Michele and Salvatore. Mi- 
chele comes to the trial in a yellow 
cardigan a neat, portly figure more 
readily imagined behind the desk 
of a provincial bank. His speciality 
is said to be the disposal of bodies. 
These three are considered the 
most valued captives. 

Alongside are ordinary men of 
the Mafia. They may look like 
teachers or lony drivers but they 
are in the dock on trial for arms 
trading trafficking in cocaine and 
heroin on a scale which has made 
Palermo the drugs capital of the 
world, and for about 1 00 different 
murders. There are also charges of 
kidnapping and extortion, but 
these are spoken of as small 
misdemeanours. 

For trying these men a vast new 
courtroom has been built in 
reinforced concrete and steel 
within the Ucciardone prison in 
the centre of Palermo. Visitors 
come to gaze at the great fortress 
and most particularly at the 
armoured personnel carriers, like 
small tanks, manned and guarded 
by soldiers in bullet-proof vests. 
The tourists also speculate about 
the famed steel cages in which 
those on trial are kept, and 
without which the violence might 
become uncontainable. 

The Palermo trial was bom out 
of a feeling of disgust, a revulsion 
against the violence which was 
apparently overwhelming the city. 
The late 1970s had seen a lull in 
Mafia killings after the terrible 
slaughter of the 1960s, when rival 





Massive security for the maxi-trial: the barred courtroom cage built for the trial inside Palermo’s Ucciardone prison, a fortress guarded by armed soldiers 


Mafia families tore themselves 
apart with car bombs placed all 
over Palermo. The Mafia leaders 
spent those years moving into a 
new field, setting up international 
connections, mainly with heroin 
traffickers in Marseilles. With the 
subsequent rise in financial stakes 
came violence. At the end of 1 980 
another war broke out between 
mafiosi in the capital. 

It began with the strange mur- 
der of a monk in his cell in the 
Convent of Santa Maria di Gesu, 
where police found no Franciscan 
poverty but seven cells containing 
arms, liquor and colour television 
sets, as well as evidence of links to 
known Mafia drug traffickers. The 
violence spread to take in the 
assassination of other Mafia mem- 
bers, then carabinieri, journalists 
and magistrates. By the end of 
1981, more than 100 people had 
died violently in Palermo alone. 

Rome resolved to fight back. 
Genera] Carlo Alberto dalla 
Chiesa, veteran of the struggles in 
mainland Italy against the Red 
Brigades, was named Prefect of 
Palermo. He had been in Sicily 
less than four months when he and 
his wife were ambushed in their 
car. Other magistrates and police- 
men died after them, but by now 
the arrests had begun. 

About five tons of pure heroin a 
year was being produced in Sicily's 
morphine refineries. It was 
shipped to the United States and 
other parts of Europe, bringing in 
about 700, OCX) . million lire (more 
tharr£300 million) per annum. At 
the height of the drug days, police 
believe that about 30,000 people 
were benefiting from the narcotics 
trade. 

When it was known that the 
Mafia were to stand trial, the 
citizens of Palermo, not unnatu- 
rally, became alarmed. Who 
would be brave enough to do jury 
service in a city where almost 
nothing is done without Mafia 
permission? When summoned, 
jurors pleaded illness, family

responsibilities, sudden foreign

said quite simply that she was too 
frightened. But a jury was found; a 
sign, say local people, that or-

that they are no longer prepared to

Nothing to lose in 
turning state witness 


- From .the day it opened in 
February, the maxi-processo has 
revolved around the evidence of 
the super-pentiti, often in a highly 
dramatic way. These super-grasses 
are something new in Mafia 
history. They are Mafiosi who 
have decided that they have 
nothing to lose in turning state 
witness. The old rules of conduct 
that bound a uomo d’onore, a man 
of honour, to unbreakable silence 
have lost their force. The singing 
of this new breed of turncoats has 


seats in the public gallery. It was 
true theatre, say those who man- 
aged to get in. 

The feet that Buscetta himself 
seemed to be speaking out of a 
sense of nostalgia for an older 
Mafia, where such random vi- 
olence would not have been 
condoned and where Mafia lead- 
ers. men of respect, wielded local 
justice probably no more brutal 
than that imposed by generations 
of feudal landowners, added to the 
sense of drama. 


More recently, a new super- 
pentito has captured the imagina- 
tion of the public galleries. 
Vincenzo Sinagra is a small, 
stocky man in his early thirties, 
with receding hair and the slightly 
puzzled and injured air of a garage 
mechanic who has been accused of 
felling to find a fault in an ailing 
engine. He comes as a surprise as a 
“man of respect": there is some- 
thing too furtive, too excitable in 
his manner. 


Sinagra arrives in the court- 
room scurrying between two lines 
of carabinieri, who walk so closely 
together that his head can barely 
be seen from between their tall, 
khaki shoulders. From the 20 
cages lining the immense green 
painted courtroom, those on trial 
stare out propped against the

draw his resignation? Under 
pressure, he said he would. 
His name went to Downing 
Street for approval by Mrs 
Thatcher, but now Pillsbury, 
Director of the Kimball Mu- 
seum at Fori Worth in Texas, 
was having second thoughts 

As the Prime Minister rub- 
ber-stamped Finsbury's 
appointment, he was talking it 
over with his wife, Mireille. 
He should not have changed 
his mind in the first place, 
they concluded: he would 
withdraw completely. 

The decision created 
shockwaves around the artis- 
tic establishment and severely 
embarrassed the trustees. 
Pillsbury, on holiday in Ven- 
ice with his family, is un- 
moved and points to two 
factors which made up his 
mind. Excessive bureaucracy 
and latent anti-Americanism 
would have made his task 
impossible, he says. 

“1 withdrew on what I 
surmised to be the general 
sentiment in Britain and what 
I worked out at the interview 
from some of the questions 
that were- asked”, he says. 
“The interview itself was 
enough for me to decide I 
didn't want to be a 
candidate." 

While Pillsbury insists: that 
he has no wish to be critical of 
the trustees, he points out that 
a short interview is an un- 
realistic way of assessing a 
candidate’s capabilities for 
such an important job. “I was 
asked at the end if I had any 
questions. I put two very short 
questions and got rather 
ambiguous answers to them, 
and that was that." 

He says that in order for any 
candidate to have any con- 
fidence in the job there should 
be more far-reaching dis- 
cussions between the trustees 
and the applicant 

“Then there were the can- 



around the gallery, he says. 

“In the end it was probably 
unfortunate that the trustees — 
if they did want me — didn't 
see that 1 was giving up a very 
exciting position and would 
have to make some tremen- 
dous sacrifices. I have what 
many people consider to be 
the best job for a museum 
professional in the United 
Slates."

didates — there were 10 of 
them. One was an academic, 
three were internal can- 
didates, two were museum 
directors from Edinburgh and 
Liverpool one was editor of 
an art magazine and one was 
an architectural historian." 


PILLSBURY LAUGHS. “It 
was a smorgasborg. That in 
itself set some warning lights 
flashing — I gained the im- 
pression that the trustees and 
the Civil Service did not have 
any idea of what son of 
candidate they were looking 
for. They were playing politics 
with the job." 

“I was thrilled and 
honoured to be invited to 
become director", he says. 
“But in the process that the 
Civil Service have there is a 
presumption that those who 
apply for the job will accept it 
unconditionally. 

“Is that an entirely appro- 
priate system, where a can- 
didate would accept the job 
without wanting to sit down 
and discuss some aspect of the 
position and the institution 
before signing on the dotted 
line?" 

The process, he says, might 
be more appropriate to the 
hiring of shop assistants. He 
points to the multi-faceted 
aspects of the job, including 
fund-raising, acquisitions, the 
notorious National Gallery 
extension and so on. He was 
not even invited to look 


HIS BEING an American was 
likely to be a continuing 
liability. “I lack what I fell was 
an important qualification, 
something that was essential 
for success in the job, from the 
British people's point of view: 
I wasn't British. I felt that lack 
would lead to divisions later if 
not sooner. That assumption 
was based on what I read in 
the press and what the trustees 
said to me. 

“Jacob Rothschild himself 
was quoted as saying that, all 
others factors being equal, 
he'd like to appoint a British 
nationaL" He laughs again. “It 
is important for the Director 
of the National Gallery to be 
British, don't you think?" 

Of the gallery itself he says: 
“It's highly bureaucratic, it 
has unions, it doesn't operate 
independently but as part of a

government agency, it’s a 
Civil Service institution. 

“I believe the director is 
subject to most of the regula- 
tions which apply to civil 
servants in terms of his 
authority and his freedom to 
carry on certain activities. It 
also has trustees who may or 
may not make the job more 
efficient In trying to achieve 
anything there would be more 
players involved than I am 
used to, including various 
government departments.” 

Pillsbury says he has no 
regret other than not having 
stuck with his original de- 
cision. “When I was ap- 
pointed it was a question of 
‘Come on, make up your 
mind 1 . Well, I did. 1 have been ’ 
at Kimball Museum for five 
and a half years and I have 
many more exciting chal- 
lenges there ahead of me."

bars, like men waiting for a bus. 
There is silence. Sinagra is led into 
a bullet-proof transparent box 
with only the front open to the 
judges, prosecutors and 16 
tricolour-sashed jury members, 
whom he feces. Distilled later, 
reproduced at length page after 
page in Sicily’s daily papers. 
Sinagra'5 tale is chilling, particu- 
larly when he explains that he has 
killed a man himself, simply 
“because I didn't like his face". In 
Palermo, everyone follows the 
day’s evidence, reporting it to each 
other much like the World Cup 
scores. 

The maxi-processo is not the 
first Mafia trial nor the only one to 
put men in cages. Fights against 
Mafia power have been going on 
ever since Mussolini first saw 
them as a serious threat, while 
successive anti-Mafia commis- 
sions have spent decades chron- 
icling and contemplating their 
crimes. What they have failed to 
do. and what every inquiry since 
has failed to do, is to establish the 
suspected links which bind the 
Mafia to the political structure of 
Italy. 

These links, long known and 
accepted but never examined, 
cannot emerge from this trial; it is 
not in the judge’s brief to make ' 
them do so. However, the trial 
matters. It is many years since 
people thought of the Mafia in 
romantic terms, as rural Robin 
Hoods, inviolate and not al- 
together despicable, obeying ar- 
chaic but somehow honourable 
codes of behaviour. 

Any fingering suspicions that 
the Mafia are not savage crim- 
inals, urban gangsters running an 
extraordinarily profitable illegal 
business, are being healthily dis- 
pelled, as day after day a litany of 
violence and corruption is heard. 
The maxi-processo, says one of the : 
investigating judges, is a very 
small move, down a road which 
appears to have no visible end, but 
it is a move none the less.

COSMETIC SORCERY 

By Dr Thomas Stnttaford and Iiz Hodgkinson 


C MEDICAL BRIEFING SPECIAL ) 

It passes through the onter layer 
of skin, the intense light being 
absorbed by the veins containing 
the dark red cells. Fibrous tissue is 
formed which eliminates the port 
vriae stain. 

Anyone considering tins treat- 
ment should first have a patch test, 
which costs artmnd £40, to see 
whether it is likdy to be effective. 
Removal of the birthmark costs 
about £50®. 

There is no doabt that many 
“cowboy" cosmetic clinics exist, as 
they are potentially very profitable 
indeed. So how shoidd a good dime 
be selected? The standard advice 
need CD be: ask year GP. However, 
most family doctors do not know 
mod about current c os m eti c treat- 
ments. The best method is to shop 
aronnd for the best bay. 

As for dinks, yoa may see a non- 
raedieal person first bet never agree

lengthy consultation with the sur- 
geon. If he does not appear in a 
medical directory, be cartful.

With fat aspiration, or Bpdysis, 
a cannala is inserted, under a

enzyme. The fat is then sacked oat. 
Cost aromd £1300. Only small 
amounts of fat any be removed by 
tikis method, which may cause 
severe hrmstng. Fat can be removed 


from thighs, buttocks, stomach, or 
underneath the chin. The operation 
is said to be most suitable for those 
who, while not clinically obese, 
have fatty bulges which no amount 
of dieting can dislodge. 

Laser treatments form another 
new fashion, bat they have had a 
troublesome history. A few years 
ago, cold beam lasers were entfan- 
ssasticafly bought by beauty salons 
to remove wrinkles, bat they did not 
work. Kenneth Clarke, when Min- 
ister for Health, announced that all 
laser ctinfcs mast now be registered 
with the local health authority. 
This applies from October. 

A British expert is John Garnith, 
who works in Southampton. He is 
president of the newly-formed Brit- 
ish Medical Laser Association and 


Jack Levenson, a dental surgeon 
who also operates a referral system 
for people seeking cosmetic sur- 
gery, says: “If yon go to a dinic that 
says yes to everything, beware. All 
reputable dinks sbonid retain 
surgeons of with the highest medi- 
cal qualifications who are doing 
this kind of work all toe time. 

“The surgeon should show yon a 
selection of before and after pic- 
tures, not aUwito absolutely perfect 
results. This enables yoa to assess 
the result and also to decide 
whether yon would be happy with 
the treatment. 

“AD work of this kind is some- 
thing of a compromise and no 
surgeon should ever lead yon to 
believe that be can perform 
miracles**. 

The dink itself should not look 
seedy, and should offer very exten- 
sive post operative care. If, for some 
reason, yoa do not like toe dink or 
tiie surgeon, leave it there. An 
essential element in any successful 
cosmetic procedure Is toe rapport 
between patient and practitioner. 
Its absence should be taken as a 
warning sign.

The news that Linda Lovelace (below) 
faces the possible removal of both 
breasts after receiving silicone 

implants may prompt 



many people to think 
again about cosmetic 
operations. How 
widely available are 
they — and how safe? 



‘We can’t cut away at fat to 
make a super svelte figure’ 



here are several 
commonly held mis- 
conceptions about 
cosmetic surgery. 
One is that such 


patients to undergo further 
cosmetic surgery. 

There are, of course, cow- 
boy dinks and unethical sur- 
geons. But there is also a very

/- 


sive and risky procedures 
indulged in only by those with 
far more vanity and money 
than sense. 

Another popular piece of 
folklore is that those who 
undergo cosmetic operations 
usually pay dearly, other than 
financially, since such opera- 
tions almost always go hor- 
ribly wrong. 

A third myth is that sur- 
geons offering these treat- 
ments are doing so purely for 
financial gam, are un- 
scrupulous and have no 
hesitation in persuading their 


by far toe great majority of 
people seeking such opera- 
tions are those who fed that 
their lives are being adversely 
affected by a. bodily 
disfigurement. 

Into this category come 
children, adolescents and 
adults with birthmarks, large 
moles or bat ears, men with 
accident-damaged noses and 
women wanting breast reduc- 
tion or augmentation. 

These are people who 
merely want to look normal, 
to be able to disappear into the 


crowd, instead of being stared 
at wherever they go. 

At one time, it was almost 
impossible to obtain cosmetic 
surgical treatments under the 
NHS because, these proce- 
dures were hdd to be an 
unjustifiable use of time, hos- 
pital beds, and expertise. 
Nowadays doctors are more 
sympathetic, realizing that a 
physical abnormality can be 
just as distressing and health- 
threatening as an illness. 

Christopher Margrave is a 
consultant plastic surgeon at a 
London terifaing hospital who 
performs many cosmetic op- 
erations for the NHS. He is

published Cosmetic Surgery:

Somebody with a serious

Name all his misfortunes on

will therefore not improve as a

The psychological screening 
appears to work well and 
between 70 to 90 per cent of 
patients find their lives and 
outlook are enhanced after 
treatment 

Children can almost always 
be treated on the NHS. “Ugly 
birthmarks and jog ears may

and these disfigurements can 
be successfully treated sur- 
gically. Some birthmarks can 
even be excised in the first few

stares and 




y far the most com- 
monly requested op- 
erations for women 
are breast 

augmentation or 
reductions. Here again, the 
women concerned are not 
prompted by empty vanity but 
feel they look peculiar. Aware- 
ness of an odd appearance can 
lead to loss of confidence and 
selfesteem. 

About 30 per cent of 
Margrave's NHS work is con- 
cerned with breast improve- 
ment operations. Of these, 
around two-thirds of patients 
want augmentation while the 
others seek reduction. 

“Almost all patients seeking 
augmentation are those whose 
breasts have become flat after 


childbirth. Breast augmenta- 
tion, using silicone implants, 
has stood the test of time and 
most patients are very pleased 
with the results". Margrave 
says. 

“The operation does not 
predude breast feeding and 
the only real late complication 
is fibrous encapsulation.” 

This is where fibrous tissue 
collects around the silicone 
prostheses, malting the breasts 
hard, tender and unnatural- 
looldng. Unfortunately, there 
is as yet no way of predicting 
which patients will suffer from 
this. Every prosthesis does 
eventually become covered by 
fibrous tissue, though this 
does not always become a 
problem. 

The hardening can be 
treated by a rather primitive 
procedure known as “breast 
popping" where, under an- 
aesthetic, the surgeon applies 
a punch to the breast This 
cracks the hard coating but 
does not harm the implant 

Breast reduction is rarely 
requested for frivolous rea- 
sons. Most women wanting 
such surgery don’t merely 
have slightly larger breasts 
than average but are over- 
endowed to such an extent 
that ordinary activities such as 
running, taking part in sports 
and buying dothes, are a 
problem. They are prone also 
to skin infections. 

“The operation is almost 
always successful and there 
are few complications”. Mar- 
grave says. “Patients have to 
understand that breast feeding 
is no longer a possibility 
because the duct system has to 
be divided in the process of 
reduction*’. 

There will be scars and, in 
about 2 per cent of cases, 
blood clots which wDl have to 
be treated by further surgery. 
The other common form of 
breast surgery is to correct 
assymetry, where the breasts 
are of noticeably different 
sizes. 

One factor not always 
appreciated by those consid- 
ering any land of breast 
surgery is that the usual X-ray 
screening tests for cancer will 
be difficult to interpret and 
those who have reduction 
operations diminish their 
chances of successful 
mammography. Another pos- 
sible problem with breast 
reduction is that occasionally 
the reimplanted nipples 
slough off and cannot be 
reinstated. Would-be patients 
also have to bear in mind that 


such surgery rarely matches 
expectations. 

With men, the most often 
requested procedures are for 
“nose jobs” and baldness. 
Since baldness is considered a 
natural phenomenon, it is 
unlikely to be corrected on the 
NHS although surgery on the 
nose may be available. 

“You can't ignore a nose". 
Margrave says. “There is very 
often good justification for 
NHS treatment here. On the 
whole, though, we tend to be 
wary of men seeking cosmetic 
surgery”. 

A request for tattoo removal 
may seem frivolous but it very 
often falls on sympathetic 
ears. As Margrave puts it: if 
everybody had a tattoo for 
each youthful indiscretion, 
we’d all be tattooed. An 
operation very often means a 
young person can become 
employable and feel more at 
home in the adult world. 
Tattoo removal is a very 
acceptable form of social 
rehabilitation." 


Fi 


or both sexes, re- 
moval of large moles 
or other surface 
disfigureements may 
well be available on 
the health service. These small 
operations are the most com- 
mon cosmetic procedures, 
according to Margrave. 

Since they can be done 
under local anaesthetic and do 
not require a hospital bed, 
they are cheap, quick and easy 
to perform. 

Cosmetic operations that 
are considered frivolous and 
not normally available to an 
NHS patient include fat suc- 
tion. facelifts, chemical face 
peeling, eyelid and chin 
operations. 

Dr Margrave says that cos- 
metic operations are far safer 
and freer from complications 
than most people imagine. “In 
most cases, there is very little 
pain and suffering afterwards. 
But patients do have to be 
aware of the limitations. We 
can’t cut away at fat to give 
overweight patients a super 
svelte figure, nor can we 
remove scars. We can't make 
people taller or shorter, or

An open 
door to 
danger 

Estate agents are 
reviewing their 
office procedures to 
protect female staff 
but the risks remain 


The disappearance last Mon- 
day of 25-year-old Susannah 

Lamplugh, after taking a man 
to view a house for sale, has 
prompted many companies 
to review their system of 
working. 

They are suggesting that 
female staff meet male clients 
in the office where possible, 
or check their identity by 
asking for a name and num- 
ber they can call back to 
'confirm any appointment to 
meet outride a house or fiat. 

These arrangements, how- 
ever, can only mitigate the 
dangers. Most firms lack the 
staff to allow women nego- 
tiators to be accompanied on 
such visits, and in the past 10 
years the number of women 
working in the estate agency 
business has increased 
considerably. 

Many women are attracted 
by the possibility of earning 
large commissions and a 
company car while a growing 
number are setting up their 
own companies. 

Female estate agents have 
always been aware that they 
ran some risks. Paula Meares. 
32. who worked with 
Chestertons for six years and 



Missing girl; Susannah 
Lamplugh at work 

now runs her own estate 
agents and property consul- 
tants said: “1 knew an Austra- 
lian girl with gorgeous blue 
eyes and a Farrah Fawcett 
cascade of hair who took one 
young man to view a 
property. 

“He asked her if she had 
ever been accosted in a flat. 
When she said no be said 
•you are about to be* and 
threw her on the bed. But he 
only kissed her and be wasn’t 
the dangerous type, although 
he did telephone the office 
later and asked to be shown 
the flat again at 6.30pm. This 
lime we sent a man and the 
client never turned up. 
Presumably he was watching 
from a distance". 

Julie Graham, 33, has been 
in the business for nine years. 
“Sometimes when one is 
showing certain gentlemen 
round certain flats, particu- 
larly in winter when it gets 
dark ax four, one becomes a 
little uneasy", she said. 
“There are times when you 
sense they want to linger in 
the bedroom and test the 
mattress, but you move 
briskly away, saying how 
reassuring it is for people to 
know that the resident porter 
is always roaming around. 

“But in future if someone 
phones up cold we will insist 
on being able to ring them 
back to confirm an appoint- 
ment rather than going out 
blind, even though we may 
lose some business by doing 
that.”

A fine system of injustice 


THE TIMES 
DIARY 

State of 
the art 

The shrapnel flies from the bomb- 
shell appointment of Neil 
MacGregor as director of the 
National Gallery. A growing sec- 
tion of the art world, I understand, 
now believes the position of the 
chairman of trustees, Jacob Roth- 
schild. is untenable. Critics say the 
public withdrawal of Rothschild's 
controversial first choice — the 
American. Edmund Pillsbuiy — 
places his working relationship 
with MacGregor in doubt. In what 
I lake to be a veiled reference to 
the problem. Hugh Leggatl a 
member of the Museums and 
Galleries Commission, yesterday 
warned that despite MacGregor’s 
having no experience of running 
galleries, he must be “allowed the 
run of his own house". Mean- 
while. friends of the Wallace 
Collection director, John 
Ingamells. who appeared to be the 
trustees’ second choice, say he had 
“suffered abominably” from the 
handling of the appointment. In 
fact, only the millionaire Ameri- 
can benefactor John Paul Getty, 
whose £50 million donation to the 
National Gallery helped earn him 
an honorary knighthood last week, 
was sanguine yesterday. He told 
me from the London Clinic: “I'm 
delighted a Brit bas got the job.’ 

Head Gardiner 

George Gardiner. Tory MP for 
Reigate. has called for the removal 
of a headmistress — without even 
meeting her. Barbara May, who 
look over control of Woodman- 
stcme First and Middle School in 
Banslead. Surrey, nearly two years 
ago. has antagonized parents by 
replacing traditional, formal 
teaching practices with more mod- 
em and flexible ones. A petition 
demanding her dismissal, drawn 
up by more than 100 parents of 
children at the 290-pupil school, 
was sent by Gardiner to Jill 
Sibthorp. chairman of the county 
education committee. His cover- 
ing letter said, in part “All these 
parents have my full and public 
support" Mrs May is furious. 
“For one's own member of par- 
liament to write this letter without 
making any attempt to speak to 
one is very rough indeed,” she 
says. Gardiner says there was no 
need to talk to her because it was 
obvious there had been a break- 
down in confidence. He has 
offered to meet her next week. 

• The Great British salesman 
strikes again. I ask First Choke 
Cars, Austin Rover dealers in

Following my note on Monday,

to say that the newly-formed

Groups is undertaking the world's

Warwick Reynolds. leader of the

PHS 


The fine of £250 imposed earlier 
this week on the pop singer Boy 
George may or may not have been 
intended as a token penalty, 
justified as such by mitigating 
circumstances in his case. 

But even as a token fine it was 
surely rather on the low side for 
somebody of his presumed wealth. 
If imended as a genuine punish- 
ment it was — as one Conser- 
vative MP described it — 
“derisory”. 

Fora millionaire an appropriate 
token fine would be nearer to 
£2.500 than £250, while a fine 
realty meant to punish and deter 
would need to be at least £25,000. 
if not more. But who has ever 
heard of such a fine being im- 
posed, say. for reckless driving by 
a rich man? 

Fines are an unsuitable form of 
punishment for poor people, be- 
cause they either cannot pay them, 
default and are then sent to prison, 
or pay them at the price of 
increased hardship to their already 
suffering families. At present more 
than 20.000 fine defaulters are 
being sent to prison every year, so 


by John Grigg 


aggravating the desperate problem 
of overcrowding in our prisons. 

For rich people, however, fines 
could be the right form of punish- 
ment for many serious offences. 
To take again that of reckless 
driving, even the loss of a licence 
hurts the rich far less than the 
badly-off, because rich people can 
afford to hire a driver. But a four- 
figure or even five-figure fine for 
the very wealthy road-hog might 
often be salutary and just. 

There is now a growing move- 
ment among penal reformers to 
adjust the level of fines more 
closely to means, and, for the 
benefit of offenders at the bottom 
end of the scaie — particularly 
those who are out of work and on 
social security — to expand the 
system of community service so 
that there would be types of it that 
could be used as an alternative to 
fines, or in case of default. 

The 1972 Criminal Justice Act 
provided that a community ser- 
vice order would be substituted 


for imprisonment as a way of 
dealing with fine defaulters. But 
this provision has never been 
implemented, partly because the 
Probation Service has felt that 
community service should he used 
as an alternative to prison only for 
more serious offenders. 

The poor are often willing 
enough to disclose their personal 
circumstances to a court, in order 
to demonstrate their inability to 
pay. But the rich have.no such 
inducement, since the fines im- 
posed upon them are all too well 
within their means. 

The maximum fine that can be 
imposed by magistrates is £2,000, 
and this is imposed only in rare 
cases. For reckless driving, the 
norm of punishment recom- 
mended by tbe Magistrates’ 
Association is 10 penalty points, a 
licence endorsement, and either 
six months' imprisonment (the 
legal maximum) or a fine of £300. 

Some upward variation of the 
fine may be considered if Lhe 


offender seems to be well off but I 
am told lhaL he is far more likely 
to be sent to prison than to be 
fined £2,000 — which is absurd. 
When a rich person is found 

S of a serious offence, for 
a big fine would be the 
suitable penalty, it is essential that 
the court should be able to 
discover how rich he is. But at 
present there is no way of obtain- 
ing this information if the culprit 
is unwilling to disclose iL 
In Sweden courts have the 
power to require of the tax 
authorities that they reveal the 
financial circumstances of in- 
dividuals who are to be punished 
by fining . But not in Britain. 

Tbe cause of personal liberty is 
indeed sacred, but so is the cause 
of justice, and some limitation of 
the one is often necessary for the 
other's sake-The system of gradu- 
ated taxation involves quite a 
severe limitation of freedom, but 
is now generally accepted as, in 
principle, just. Why should there 
not be a system of graduated fines, 
using the Inland Revenue to 
provide the necessary evidence? 


Bernard Levin: the way we live now 


Strange news from China; and the 
strangest thing about the news is 
that it is not at all strange. 

The authorities there are wor- 
ried about a rising crime-rate, two 
aspects of which worry them 
particularly. First, it seems that 
gangs of adolescent youths have 
been terrorizing the country; rob- 
bery with violence seems to be 
their speciality. 

And as if that is not enough, 
there have been numerous execu- 
tions among a somewhat older 
generation, the sons or grandsons 
of leading figures in the present 
Chinese leadership or of heroes of 
the revolution, the Long March 
and the conquest of all China for 
Communism; murder and rape 
seem to have been the leading 
crimes in this category. 

I am tempted to say that those 
of my readers who are genuinely 
surprised at this news ought to be 
sent to a Chinese" re-education'’ 
camp; there would be plenty to 
choose from, though anyone eager 
to sign up should be warned that 
the experience will be not at all 
like a 1930s summer school at 
Darlington. 

You see, if you were surprised at 
the news that in China there are 
violent criminals scarcely out of 
short trousers, and even more 
violent ones who believe that their 
illustrious ancestry is protection 
enough for them to do as they like 
without retribution, it can only be 
because you have come to believe, 
as so many have, that China, or to 
be precise. Communism in China, 
has literally changed the nature of 
man. That, after all is what your 
fathers (if they were as silly as you) 
believed about Stalin's Russia, 
where . . . well, Malcolm Mug- 
geridge's great apostrophe to hu- 
man folly will bear quoting once 
more: 

Wise old Shaw, high-minded old 
Barbusse. the venerable Webbs, 
Gide the pure in heart and Picasso 
the impure, down to poor little 
teachers, crazed clergymen and 
millionaires, drivelling dons and 
very special correspondents ... all 
resolved, come what might, to 
believe anything, however prepos- 
terous, to overlook anything, how- 
ever villainous, to approve any- 
thing, however obscurantist and 
brutally authoritarian, in order to 
be able to preserve intact the 
confident expectation that one of 
the most thoroughgoing, ruthless 
and bloody tyrannies ever to exist 
on earth could be relied on to 
champion human freedom, the 
brotherhood of man, and all the 
other good liberal causes to which 
they had dedicated their lives. 

They even had a word for it. New 
Soviet Man. and the fact that at 
much the same time Hitler was 
instituting a New Order appar- 
ently gave no one pause. The 
central paradox of Stalin's Russia 
and those outside who worshipped 
it was that a system recommended 
as heaven on earth held, and holds 
unbroken to this day (by a very 
wide margin indeed), the record 
for the greatest number of inno- 
cent human beings deliberately

done to death in the entire history 
of the world; but that monstrous 
and unforgivable misapprehen- 
sion is so vast and bloodstained 
that it has understandably tended 
to obscure another fallacy, less 
murderous in its effects yet per- 
haps more subtly dangerous, ifnot 
to life then at least to reason. 

Despite Stalin and Hiller, Mao 
and Pol Pot, Tito and Franco, 
Stroessner and Castro, the Du- 
valiers and lhe Dergue. and all the 
other mad and murderous brutes 
who have defiled this century and 
defile it still, it seems to me plain 
that mankind in general is better 
than it was in the earlier centuries. 
There is more altruism, more 
respect for the individual worth of 
others, more generosity, more 
resistance to state eviL more 
rejection of arbitrary discrimina- 
tion, more acceptance of the 
limitations of human action, more 
understanding of our own ig- 
norance, even more tolerance, we 
progress, it is true, by fits and 

starts, and for every four steps 
forward that we take, we slip three 
steps back, but slowly, inexorably, 
we move forward. 

Human nature, then, can 
change. But it cannot change 
quickly. and. above all, it cannot 
be changed, least of all by political 


action. 

I have said it two dozen times, 
and in any case Horace said it 
before me: Thingummy expellas 
furca. whatsit whatsit recuiret. 
“Grant that the old Adam in this 
Child may be buried”, says the 
Anglican ceremony of baptism, 
“that the new man shall be raised 
up in him”; what is more, it 
sometimes happens. But those 
who plan to sit around until it 
happens to all mankind had better 
bring a cushion and a very long 
book. In China, as in Britain, 
some people want what they 
haven't got. and some of these are 
willing to take it, if necessary using 
the greatest violence, from those 
who have iL In both countries, 
too, the children of the powerful 
are more inclined than the 
generality to believe that their 
family connections will give them 
immunity, and quite often, and 
forquite a long time, they are right 
in that belief. The same, on both 
counts, is true in Albania, Bu- 
rundi Chile, Denmark, Ethiopia, 
France, Guatemala, Haiti, 
Indonesia. Japan. Kuwait, 
Liechtenstein. Mexico, Nigeria, 
Oman, Portugal. Qatar. Romania. 
Sierra Leone. Thailand, Uruguay, 
Venezuela, the Windward Isles, 
Yemen and Zambia, and if there 
was a country beginning with X it 


would apply there, too. 

It must be said that although the 
belief in the rapid perfectibility of 
man is wholly without founda- 
tion, and the belief that it has 
actually taken place through the 
workings of a particular political 
system not only baseless but very 
dangerous indeed, the belief is not 
in itself unworthy; on the contrary, 
the longing for perfection is one of 
the noblest and most persistent, of 
all human dreams, and although 
those dreams have, again and 
again throughout history, turned 
to waking nightmares, mankind 
dreams them stilL 

Professor Paul Hollander’s 
Political Pilgrims, now a perma- 
nent signpost in the country of the 
blind, has shown how, decade 
after decade, some of the world's 
worst (and. in some cases, most 
obvious) tyrannies have been 
visited and hymned, and that as 
disillusion sets in with one, the 
disillusioned have instantly, so 
deep and irresistible is their 
craving, adopted another. When, 
some 30 years after they took 
place, Stalin's show-trials were 
admitted (by some, anyway) to 
have been not quite according to 
the Corpus Juris Civilis of Justin- 
ian, and the Terror to have been 
aptly named, it occurred to few of 
those who were thus finally dis- 
abused to question the origin and 
basis of their so tragically mis- 
placed belief, they, or their spir- 
itual heirs, simply turned to 
Mao — second only to Stalin in 
the murder contest — and be- 
lieved no lesspassionaiely that he 
had turned China into Paradise. 
When they began to feel, uneasily, 
that he might not have done so 
after alL there was no lack of 
alternative candidates: North 
Vietnam, Cuba, Mozambique, 
Ethiopia, even Cambodia ... tbe 
dogs bark, but the caravan moves 
on. It has even moved on to 
Afghanistan, where Jonathan 
Steele, of the Guardian, found 
those nice Russians doing so much 
for the locals, who were naturally 
so grateful and wished the Rus- 
sians would never go away, 
particularly since they were the 
locals' only defence against those 
wicked rebels who were not in tbe 
least grateful to the Russians and 
thoroughly deserved to have those 
sweet little Russian bombs 
dropped on them. (And the laiesL 
of course, is Nicaragua.) 

But that, you see, is why I took 
care to defend, the dream as 
harmless only in itself. In the 
Garden of Eden there was a 
serpent and careful reading of the 
story will reveal that the serpent 
must have been already in res- 
idence when Adam and Eve 
arrived, nor is there any stif®es- 
tion that when they were driven 
out he was expelled also. The 
revelation that China, too, has a 
crime wave, that it extends to 
children, and that tbe scions of 
leading families in the Communist 
hierarchy are foremost in the law- 
breaking, is indeed momentous 
news. But it is also the oldest news 
in the world.

How to weed out the biased juror 


With considerable political cour- 
age. the government plans to 
abolish the defendant's right to 
challenge jurors without having to 
give reasons. The system, at 
present, enables guilty men to 
purge those jurors who look 
intelligent enough to understand 
the prosecution's case, and 
respectable enough to convict, 
once they have done so. 

But there exists in the rules of 
jury selection an evil which is 
worse than this, because it tends to 
the conviction of the innocent 
rather than the acquittal of the 
guilty. It is that nothing is done to 
delect jurors who really are biased, 
or otherwise unfit to serve; and 
that it is very difficult to appeal if 
they try a man and convict him. 

Criminals and lunatics, like 
clergymen and lawyers, are auto- 
matically disqualified from jury 
service. But the same does not go 
for those who are stone-deaf, half- 
blind. illiterate, unable to under- 
stand English, or a brother-in-law 
of the accused person's alleged 
victim. If a potential juror is unfit 
through disability or want of 
English, and court officials notice 
this, they may ask the judge to 
discharge him. but no examina- 
tion. physical or educational is 
conducted. 

The defence may challenge 
jurors for bias or unfitness, and 
the government wants this limited 
right to remain. But this is largely 
ineffectual because defence coun- 
sel knows so little about the people 
who have been selected. He may 
not ask them questions and, like 
the court officials, usually has only 


John Spencer calls for new measures to 
prevent the innocent being convicted 


the juror's name, address, voice 
and physical appearance to go on. 
Prejudice may not appear. 

If it comes out at the trial that a 
juror is biased or unfit, the judge 
has power to stop the case and 
order a retrial Thus a year or two 
ago a lengthy fraud trial was 
abandoned when two female ju- 
rors got drunk, and one made 
sexual advances to a male col- 
league during lhe closing speech 
for the defence. 

But the judge bas the discretion 
to let the trial go on. Recently, 
when some mental hospital nurses 
were on trial fordoing violence to 
their patients, it emerged that one 
of the jurors was prejudiced 
■ against the defendants by what he 
had heard about the affair from his 
wife, herself a mental nurse, and 
that he had preached his prej- 
udices to three other jurors as he 
drove them to and from court over 
the previous 10 days. The judge 
sent the offending juror home and 
carried on with a jury of 11. 
which — not surprisingly, per- 
haps - convicted. 

if the case goes on, or the jurors* 
bias or unfitness only comes to 
light after conviction, this is rarely 
accepted as a valid ground of 
appeal. Hitherto the defendant has 
virtually had to show that the 
other jurors were actually 
contaminated by the prejudice, 
and this is difficult because it is 
assumed that they were not and 


the presumption is almost 
irrebuttable. 

The Court of Appeal dismissed 
the mental nurses' appeal, saying 
the biased jurors' passengers 
would not have carried any prej- 
udice into the jury room; but the 
court did not inquire what actually 
happened there, and would not 
have listened even if anyone had 
tried to tell iL because this would 
have compromised the secrecy of 
the jury room. 

In a case in 1961. the jury was 
said to have convicted a house- 
breaker because, at the crucial 
moment, the foreman showed the 
jurors a list of his previous 
convictions. The Court of Appeal 
refused to hear evidence that this 
had happened, observing that if 
this sort of thing was aired in 
coun. it would “diminish the 
confidence that the public rightly 
has in the general propriety of 
criminal verdicts”. 

This constipated attitude con- 
trasts starkly with the approach of 
the courts to appeals from judges, 
magistrates and others. Here, any 
whiff of bias is likely to cause the 
decision to be reversed and the 
appellant need not argue, lei alone 
show that it caused him to lose. 

In the leading case, where the 
Court of Appeal overturned a rent 
assessment committee decision 
adverse to a property company on 
the ground that the chairman of 
the committee had earlier helped 


his father, who was a tenant of a 
related company, to conduct simi- 
lar proceedings against his land- 
lord. Lord Denning said this: 

“Tbe court will not enquire 
whether he did in fact favour one 
side unfairly. Suffice it that 
reasonable people might think he 
did. Justice must be rooted in 
confidence, and confidence is 
destroyed when right-minded peo- 
ple go away thinking,. The judge 
was biased'.” 

This attitude may now change. 
On July 24 the House of Lords 
reversed the Court of Appeal and 
allowed the menial nurses’ appeal. 
But if it does change, this will 
solve the problem only where bias 
or unfitness in a juror happens to 
come to light What is also needed 
js proper machinery to discover it 
in advance. 

In the United States defence 
lawyers are permitted to question 
potential jurors about their prej- 
udices— a cure that has led to 
such time-wasting and abuse that 
in England it is usually seen as 
worse than the illness. But it does 
not follow that no cure is prac- 
ticable. 

It would surely improve matters 
if court officials had to check that 
all potential jurors can see, hear, 
read, write and understand En- 
glish: and if the judge had to ask 
the jurors selected to try a case 
whether they have any personal 
connection with the defendant, or 
the victim, or any prior knowledge 
of the case. Prevention is better 
than cure.

Can Nato tolerate 
‘fire first’ rule? 


y . r *4 
■ ■ 


The roles of engagement at sea 
sound traditional and harmless 
enough; they are in fact fun- 
damental to civilian control - of 
military' forces. They are also one 
of the many issues splitting the 
Nato alliance, though they have 
been pushed into the background 
in the past few months by many 
other alliance-splitting issues. 

Part ofthe United States Navy’s 
New Maritime Strategy states that 
in times of crisis or expected 
hostilities the president will dele- 
gate the authority to open fire to 
the commander of a particular 
naval force: the “on-scene 
commander”. Furthermore, the 
commander can open fire not only 
when he is fired on. but - and this 
is the point - when he judges that 
his adversary is acting with “hos- 
tile intent”. 

In practice, the commander 
may in turn delegate the authority 
even further, if his force includes 
ships armed with the Aegis track- 
and-fire system. This wifi itself 
determine whether potential sur- 
face and air targets have a “hostile 
intent" and will itself select the 
“best response", including that of 
opening fire firsL 

It does not necessarily replace 
human decision, but is prepared to 
do so at the throw of a switch. So 
far, four American warships are 
equipped with Aegis, and 27 are 
on order. 

The authority to fire first ap- 
pears to have been delegated in 
both the US-Libyan fights this 
year, at which at least one Aegis- 
equipped ship was present — first 
during the coat-trailing in March, 
when the Sixth Fleet fired on 
Libyan patrol boats whose intent 
was, no doubt rightly, judged 
hostile; and again during the air 
attacks on “terrorist targets” in 
April when, to the surprise of the 
American admiral there was no 
Libyan response. 

We were lucky: General Rogers, 
Supreme Allied Commander Eu- 
rope. was in overall command of 
the operations, which took place 
in the Mediterranean, with a fleet 
“assigned” to Nato. But they were 
not Nato operations and would 
not have been approved by the 
European Nato allies. And al- 
though they could have involved 
Nato in war, they were not under 
Nato political controL 

The new rules of engagement no 
doubt look like a good idea to the 
US Navy on technological and 
military grounds. The range and 
accuracy of naval missiles is now 
so great that firing first gives more 
of an advantage than ever. But this 
raises terrible political and moral 
problems. To fire first is to attack, 
and the idea of a pre-emptive 
attack by a member state goes 


against the political and moral 
“set” ofthe Western democracies. 

It also flies in the face of the 
North Atlantic Treaty itself, which 
says — echoing the mainstream of 
military alliance treaties through- 
out history — that an attack on 
one shall be regarded as an attack 
on all. As a high Nato authority 
put it to me recently: “It wys an 
attack on one. not by one." 

Let us consider what could 
happen. At a time of high political 
tension the US Navy undertakes 
one of its now routine sorties into 
the Norwegian Sea or the Black 
Sea. The “on-scene commander" 
thinks certain Soviet forces have a 
hostile imenL and opens fire, or 
allows his Aegis to. At that 
moment he would be acting as a 
US national commander (as he 
was in the Libyan punch-ups). 

At a certain point, the tra- 
ditional scenario goes, the US fleet 
in question would be placed under 
Nato command, to which it is 
normally only “assigned”, and the 
on-scene US commander would 
come under the political authority 
of the Nato Council. For Nato 
Command to order forces into 
action, the consent of member 
nations is required. 

But would they consent lo the 
fighL or war, if there had been no 
attack on the US fleet? America’s 
allies would be resentful and 
confused, and Europe would be 
accused by the Soviet Union of 
collusion and by the US of 
treachery. 

That is the apocalyptic conclu- 
sion at the end of a simple line of 
reasoning; the “worst case 
analysis”. But its mere possibility 
is even now causing acute political 
strain in the alliance. At the very 
least, the existence of the “fire on 
hostile intent” role can only tend 
to put “crisis management” into 
the hands of American naval 
commanders. It would also tend 
to make the US administration 
postpone the moment when it 
puts its forces under Nato com- 
mand in a crisis, the longer to 
retain the technological advantage 
and military freedom of action the 
new rule is intended to confer. 

What is to be done? This is 
another of those instances where 
the present US administration, 
seeing an opportunity to exert its 
great strength, is ready to breach 
its international obligations, in 
this esse the North Atlantic 
Treaty. 

Luckily Nato has so far shown 
itself to be a durable plant — and 
long may it continue to be so. But 
at the moment it is exposed to too 
many . strains for the safety of its 
European members.

It’s the time 
of the signs 


While reviewing a book on the 
origin of writing in last Sunday's 
Observer, Anthony Burgess con- 
trived to suggest that we might be 
in on the end of writing as well. At 
least, he seemed to be saying that 
semiology, the study of signs, was 
well placed to take over from the 
study of words, and that signs 
were what be really used to 
communicate with, not words. 

After 1 had finished reading the 
review, I drummed my fingers on 
the table, sighed a little sigh, stared 
out of the window and took down 
a book at random from the shell 
These are all signs that ! fancied 
Mr Burgess might be right that I 
personally, being in the word 
business, did not want to believe 
him. and that I would change the 
subject by reading something else. 

All this was executed without 
words, with signs only, and was 
much less tiring than an intellec- 
tual conversation. 

The book I took down was one 
printed in 1930 called- Modem 
Prose, and I found in it the 
following passage by 
G.K. Chesterton: 

For in the last resort ail men talk 
by signs. To talk by statues is to 
talk bv signs: to talk by cities is to 
talk by signs. Pillars, palaces, 
cathedrals, temples, pyramids, are 
an enormous dumb alphabet, as if 
some giant held up his fingers of 
swwf- The most important things 
at the last are always said bv signs 
even if. like the Cross on St Paul’s, 
they are signs in heaven. If men do 
not understand signs, thev wifi 
never understand words. 

I pul the book back on the shelf 
with a start. I paced up and down 
the room, I looked distraughL I 
gave the cat its tea (much to its 
surpnse - I had fed it 10 minutes 
previously) and I scratched my 
head. 

All signs, of course, signs that I 
was alarmed to find Anthony 
Burgess and G.K. Chesterton 
agreeing about things in such a 
way 50 years apart, and 
that 1 didn’t want to lake the risk 
of reading a third book, in case I 
found somebody agreeing with 
both of them. 

So 1 went shopping instead. And 
while I was shopping. 1 read the 
taoeis on the products with rather 
more attention than usual be- 
cause. well, if words were going to 

fr? U i , -i°^ s * non behind my back, 

I felt like having a last taste. And it 
was probably the first time I had 
nouced how many words there are 
on labels, and how few 0 f them 
mean anything. 

Prime bacon. Farm-fresh eggs. 
Selected oranges. Choice apples 
Ganden peas. Crispy cereals. Real 
fruit juice. Golden vegetable soup. 
Country shampoos ... p 


None of the words with capital 
letters mean much at ali. You 
could swap most of them around 
without noticing the difference, 
and get prime oranges, choice 
bacon, country eggs, real 
peas . . . some of them are down- 
right lies. 

Show me a frozen pea grown in 
a garden, or a soup coloured gold, 
or a farm-fresh egg that isn’t 
actua lly factory-fresh, and TU 
prepare a handsome apology — or 
at least 111 give a sign, because I 
think maybe Burgess and Chester- 
ton are right Signs are on the way 
in and words are on the way out 
because words don't mean any- 
thing any more. They haven't 
meant anything in rock lyrics for 
the past 20 years. 

(Rock music was actually very 
late in the field of meaninglesness. 
Jazz invented a totally in- 
comprehensible form of singing 
folly 60 years ago, in the shape of 
Scat And nobody has understood 
a word of opera for about 200 
years, unless they had the book of 
words on their lap. I am told that 
advanced opera houses now use 
electronic subtitles.) 

The people in the Bible had the 
right idea. Whenever they called 
upon God for a message, tiiey 
didn't ask him to let them have it 
in writing, or in the form of a 
memo: they cried, “Give us a sum, 
O Lord!” 

, And. the Lord duly sent them a 
sign, in the form of burning 
bushes, rainbows, plagues of frogs, 
pillars of salt and many other 
exciting products from his miracle 
factory. The only time he ever let 
mem have it in writing was when 
Moses came back with the Ten 
Commandments, and there seems 
to be general agreement that these 
have also been far more trouble 
than they are worth.

SANCTIONS AND THE POLLS 


For a Cabinet meeting to end 
with a statement of unity is 
never — according to accepted 
political canons — a very good 
sign ; that it is united. Mrs 
Thatcher has ; set her face 
against further sanctions 
against South Africa. Sir Geof- 


less, have a hard struggle to 
hold her chosen line. In tac- 
tical terms it is Intimate for 
her to have a strong , opening 
position. It is highly desirable 
that she should also have an 
agreed fall-back position. 
Whether the Cabinet can man- 


^ ftey Howe is hot alone in. his,, age such a diplomatic, act 




weariness with the Prime 
Minister’s stance. 

As fer as sanctions them- 
selves are concerned, Mrs 
Thatcher is right; the Foreign 
Office is wrong. For all the 
reasons which we have out- 
lined : so : often over the past 
weeks, the imposition of pu - 
nitive economic measures wiU 
not speed the end of apartheid. 

This view is shared by some 
aLleast of those ministers who 
would have preferred to open 
the - weekend's negotiations 
with the Commonwealth lead- 
ers in a more accommodating 
stance. It is also, as our poll 
shows today, a view shared by 
almost, half the electorate. 
Those who support sanctions 
want to be in step more than 
they want , sanctions. There is 
only one measure — the end of 
new investment — that com- 
mands even close to majority 
support. There is litde con- 
fidence that any sanctions will 
actually work. 

Mrs Thatcher will, nonethe- 


without the cracks showing is, 
however, open to serious 
doubt 

.The critics who for long 
years have taken electoral 
benefits from Mrs Thatcher’s 
strength, while losing no 
opportunity to oppose each 
manifestation of it, have lost 
confidence. As the Westland 
memory begins to fade, they 
see fresh signs of a lost 
election. And for what? For a 
country whose leadership 
delivers foul abuse to the 
Foreign Secretary and praise to 
the Prime Minister that is 
almost as dangerous {possibly 
more so). Her Cabinet oppo- 
nents are more scared than in 
the past. She is less assured 
than in the past It is a 
dangerous mix. 

At the back of the Prime 
Minister’s mind there remains 
the idea that her attitude of no- 
surrender is a political virtue 
in itself It is indeed a virtue. 
But it is not a political virtue 
on every issue. It looks 


DISPARITIES - BUT NOT OF OPINION 


Missing from Regional Trends 
are . two sets of data. One the 
Central Statistical Office could 
collect, if it were so minded. It 
is a rigorous accounting of 
where taxation is raised and 
where public expenditure goes 
within the United Kingdom — 


Bat such information is of 
academic interest only. For, 
here is the other missing data 
set in Regional Trends, there is 
no political dimension to go 
with all these social indicators.

All expenditure, on defence 
contracts, on civil service pay, 
oa roads, on subsidy to agri- 
culture, has a geographical 
dimension. All' outlays can 
have the effect of transferring 
sums between areas. 

Under the heading of covert

counted expenditures on, say,

and what they meant to the 
growth of industry and

Country. Similarly, travellers

inhabitants of Yorkshire and 
Humberside are great fish- 
eaters — this is a picture of 
national life well worth 
publication, but its signifi- 
cance is considerably lessened 
by the failure, to put it crudely, 
of regional envy. These facts 
and figures are politically 
significant only if they gen- 
erate some complaint or some 
claim on central resources. 
Regional Trends has nothing 
to say about tile geographical 
differentiation of political atti-

meats of citizens in other, less 
favoured regions. The picture 
of regional cross subsidy is 
complex. Ditto the regional 
tax take. Regional Trends 
includes an estimate of direct 
taxation on a regional basis but 
issues no figures on indirect 
tax (nor, in the light of ancient 
Scottish sensibilities does it 
apportion revenue from North 
Sea oil). This makes it impos- 
sible to assess how far regions 
are net beneficiaries from the 
State. 


its strength in the urban areas 
of North, North West and 
Scotland, and draws a line 
from Wash to Severn. But to 
speak, consequently, of a 
Northern political attitude is 
false: The voters of Carlisle 
share no obvious political 
predisposition with those of 
say, Penrith. The Labour dis- 
positions of the voters of 
County Durham are in no 
recognisable sense more 
quintessentially northern than 
the Liberal inclinations (re- 


cently revealed) of the voters, 
of Malton and Thirsk or the’ 
Conservatism of Darlington. 

And the political attitudes 
manifest in Rochdale or 
Southport, Morecambe or 
Davyhuhne are as genuinely 
Lancastrian as those predomi- 
nant in Knowsley or Bohon. 

The feet of modem British 
politics is that there is no 
regional dimension. Despite 
grumblings from politicians in 
the North East that they lade 
the mechanism for develop- 
ment apparently given Scot- 
land through the Scottish 
Office and the Scottish 
Development Agency, there is 
no concerted pressure for ac- 
tion on the centre of the polity. 
There is no North Western . 
consciousness in the House of 
Commons, or any other locus 
of political action: for that 
matter. Disparate rates of un- 
employment, living standards 
and the rest have, apparently, ' 
no. generally and dearly ad- 
verse political con s e quenc es 
for the party in power. 

Why then, it has to be asked, 
is regional policy being talked 
up again? Whatever the exact 
words used at the weekend by 
Mr Norman Tebbitt in his 
latest obiter dictum, he was 
talking about regional policy— 
the conscious transfer of pub- 
lic expenditure to benefit one 
region over against another. It 
would not be in Mr Tebbitt’s 
character to explain this by 
guilty conscience inspired by 
disparities in Regional Trends .

NEW LATIN-AMERICAN RHYTHMS 


The economic accord which 
has been signed by Argentina 
and Brazil raises questions 
which few have so far dared try 
to answer. By and large it has 
been welcomed in the New 
World (cautiously in some 


supra-national ideal they have 
foundered amid conflicting in- 
terests and acrimony. Govern- 
ments have either been 
reluctant to abandon protec- 
tionist policies in support of 
traditional industries or have 


cases, enthusiastically in oth- . been seduced by outside pow- 
ers) and greeted with lofty ers — offering cut-price goods 


scepticism in the Old. Re- 
actions mirror the mixed 
experiences, of those who have 
trod the awkward path to- 
wards a common market be- 
fore. 

. In theory there is much to 
say for it, encouraging 
comparison with the coal and 
steel agreement reached by 
France and West Germany 
after the Second World War. 
In. South American terms it 
might be seen as more im- 
portant even than that, since 
the partners represent two- 
thirds of the Southern conti- 
nent and something like half of 
its.people. Between them they 
make up more than the nu- 
cleus of a regional market — to 
which Uruguay looks like be- 
ing the first outside adherent 

In practice the only thing 
common about Latin Ameri- 
can markets so far has been 
their abject failure. Economic 
agreements whether bilateral 
or multilateral have collapsed, 
chiefly because neither party 
has been inspired by any 
visionary sense of purpose. 
Without any guiding light or 

Worst enemy? 

From Professor Alan Thompson 
Sir. You are right to state (today’s 
editorial) that “in this country, 
dogs stir passions unknown 
elsewhere” 

In 1964 I moved a private 
member's Bill concerned with 
keeping dogs out of foodshops - 
the Dogs (Access to Foodshops) 
Bill. It proposed asmodesi fine of 
£5 for anyone who took a dog into 


which the other market part- 
ners cannot match. 

Yet the future could be 
different. Brazil and Argentina 
are both under new manage- 
ment and have been struggling 
to overcome not dissimilar 
economic problems, including, 
heavy debts and protectionism 
overseas. If common experi- 
ence is the foundation for true 
togetherness, a case might be 
made out for their living 
together quite well. After sev- 
eral generations of tense ri- 
valry they would certainly 
seem to be closer than ever 
before — or certainly for very 
many years. President Jose 
Sarney travelled to Buenos 
Aires to sign the new pact and 
became the first elected Brazil- 
ian leader to visit the Ar- 
gentine capital for a quarter of 
a century. 

But common experience is 
not enough. The agreement 
established a customs union 
with mutual preferences for 
each other’s exports, while also 
laying down the ground rules 
for technical cooperation in 
such areas as energy and 

such premises. I had been told (hat 
the Government was not un- 
sympathetic to my measure. 

In the event, an absolute storm 
of protest ensued and the Govern- 
ment hastily washed its hands of 
me. Letters poured in by the 
hundred protesting that my Bill 
was unfair and insulting to dogs. 
The Northern Ireland MPs op- 
posed me because 1 had failed to 
consult them on dog-owning opin- 
ion in their area of Great Britain. 


agriculture. It envisaged a 
bilateral trade in capital goods 
worth some $2 billion by 1990. 

But questions are already 
being asked in Brasilia about 
the agreement by President 
Samey to purchase an annual 
two million tonnes of Ar- 
gentine wheat. At the same 
time businessmen in Buenos 
Aires are concerned about the 
preferences which will now be 
allowed Brazilian industry — 
which is fitter and livelier than 
Argentina's. Can Argentine in- 
dustry withstand the chal- 
lenge? 

Bilateral agreements are 
possibly more difficult to op- 
erate than multilateral; re- 
action to the accord in the two 
countries already indicates ar- 
eas in which problems will lie. 
Yet much favours the two 
most powerful countries in 
South America seeking each 
other’s hand in a fiercely 
competitive outside world. 
That the way ahead looks like 
being mined should not deter 
them from walking along it 

What they need is an inner 
conviction that they are doing 
the right thing and perhaps, 
too, some still more distant 
goal of integration. Without 
this their pact will be no more 
than a marriage of conve- 
nience — and the survival 
record for these is less than 
happy. 

One correspondent (a retired 
military man) wrote: “I am glad to 
see that you want to keep dogs out 
of foodshops. I would not want my 
nice, clean dog mixing with filthy 
grocery assistants.” 

My Bill failed. 

Yours faithfully,

in which votes will necessarily 
be won. And they are probably 
right not to be persuaded. 

According to today’s poll, a 
third of Conservative support- 
ers are dissatisfied with her 
handling of the Sooth African 
issue. A half, of the Conser- 
vatives polled believe that 
British Government policy to- 
wards South Africa should be 
influenced by the Queen's 
views on the Commonwealth. 

The ramifications of the 
alleged rift between Downing 
Street and the Palace have 
clearly had some adverse effect 
on the Government’s stand- 
ing. The Labour Party is now 
at its highest position in any 
poll taken by MORI since 
before the Falklands conflict. 
It has been a turbulent period 
for the pollsters but today's 
evidence will be a fine fillip for 
Mr Kinnock. After a judicious 
period of silence on the allega- 
tions in The Sunday Times he 
is now beginning to vaunt his 
respect for the Queen with 
dangerous confidence. 


■ Sanctions as a 
moral issue 

From the Bishop of Birmingham 
i Sir, It requires expert knowledge 
to assess both the loss we may 
suffer from further measures 
against South Africa and the effect 
of sanctions against us by the rest 
3 of Africa' if we do not take such 
i r me asur es. Similar knowledge is 
required to measure the immedi- 
ate loss of income from our South 
' African in vestments against the 
f effect of their future total loss if we 
do not actively help a majority 
i South African government to 
come into being. 

These are matters for statesmen, 
r not chur chmen. 

1 But when the Prime Minster 

■ asserts that it is. immoral to apply 
t sanctions, because of the damage 
- this would cause to Mack South 
: Africans, then churchmen have a 
. positive duty to examine her 

daim, especially as the majority of 
churches in England and Scotland 
have already urged that farther 
; measures be taken. . 

The Prime Minister helped to 
set up the EPG (Eminent Persons 
Group). Writing at the end of their 
report about “concerted action of 
an effective land”, the group 
concluded: “Such action may be 
the last opportunity to avert the 
worst bloodbath since the Second 
World War." 

Measures taken to avert this, 
even if they entail economic 
hardship, far from being immoral, 
are the only peaceful means left to 
persuade the Botha government to 
open meaningful n^nttminiw 
with South African majority lead- 
ers. 

Regrettably Sir Geoffrey 
Howe's mission on behalf of the 
EEC can be seen to have achieved 
no significant results. If the Prime 
Minister is to continue to invoke 
morality, she must now initiate 
these “concerted measures of an 
effective kind".

Politics and Press 

From Mr Joe Haines 
Sir, You say in your leader (July 
25) about the Westland affair that 
“much of Mr Ingham's conduct' in 
this matter as in others would be 
unremarkable if tike Mr Joe 
Haines in the Government of 
Harold Wilson, he was a political 
appointee claiming .none of the 
neutrality that goes with the Civil 
Service." 

Up to a point. Lord Gbpper. But 
it is not tolerable, even in a 
political appointee, to behave - 
disreputably. I was appointed. 
Press Secretary (as a Civil Servant) 
because of my well-known views, 
but I never imposed political, as 
opposed to governmental, propa- 
ganda upon' the Lobby or any 
other group. 

In my first spell at No 10 the 
Prime Minister had a political 
Press officer, Gerald Kaufman, 
who never interfered with the 
Civil Service Press office. The 
difficulty for a permanent Civil 
Servant in the post of Press 
Secretary is that, he serves an 
individual and not the Govern- 
ment as a whole, whatever the 
convention. * 

The job cannot be done prop- 
' erfy without a fierce loyalty to the 
Prime Minister. Inevitably, that 
takes the ' incumbent beyond 
political neutrality. It is better to 
>e honest about it from the start, ' 
bur not dishonest in office. 

Yours faithfully,

Pig in a poke 

From the Librarian and the Assis- 
tant Librarian qf the William Sab 
Library 

Sir, The picture of a giant pig 
whose sale for £15,400 you re- 
ported on July 23 has- been 
tentatively attributed to Thomas 
Peploe Wood, of Great Haywood, 
Staffordshire. 

The William Salt library has a 
large collection of T. P. Wood 
paintings, mostly watercolours 
and including some of his rough 
sketchbooks, and h seems to us 
that the style of the pig picture is 
so completely different from any 
of these as to make it highly 
unlikely that Wood could have 
painted it. 

Even his earliest work shows a 
sophistication and tightness of 
touch lacking in the pig picture; be 
is certainly not a primitive painter 
in the usual sense of the term. The 
library also holds a number of 
electoral registers and commercial 
directories datnw .from Wood's . 
lifetime, in which no mention is 
made of a Joseph Lawton in or 
near Great or Little Haywood, 

> which suggests that the giant pig 
may have been bred before T. P. 
Wood was. 

A more likely candidate is 
perhaps Benjamin Rogers, of Staf- 
ford. His dates are uncertain but 
he was flourishing around 1800 
and appears in Parson and 
Bradshaw’s Staffordshire direc- 
tory. for 1818. The William Salt ; 
Utasry possesses a large picture < 

advertisement for the Crown Inn, 
Stone, engraved from a painting 
by Rogers, whose style is strikingly i 

similar to that of The pig pain ting, < 

particularly in the re p r e s ent a ti on < 

of buildings. Rogers's main claim < 

to feme is that he was the first < 

drawing master of the better 
known Peter de WinL ]

Preserving value in family life 


From Professor Richard Whitfield . 
Sir, The rise in 1985 of births to 
single women and unmarried 
couples to one in five of all births 
(report, July 21) is just one 
indicator of alarming trends in 
family formation and in the 
climate for child development. 
Over a mere eight years, nothin a 
relatively stable and liberal di- 
mate regarding abortion, this 
proportion has more than don- 


We know less than we should 
about the details of this trend. 
While some encouragement can 
be drawn from the fact that two 
thirds of such births are registered 
m the joint names of mother and 
father, with half of these babies 
having parents who are at feat 
time cohabiting, there appears to 
be reticence or a fear of commit- 
ment between these partners 
which, at the very least, does not 
promote the security and identity, 
legal and otherwise, which is 
generally helpful for all parents 
and children. 

The overall costs to the public 
purse, and to industry, of the 
consequences of household tur- 
moil and insecurity, however 
caused, are vast They may even 
yet emerge as unacceptable to all 
major political parties. The rate of 
change in the social fabric is now 
greater than at any time in 
recorded history. Many can and 
do lose their way at enormous 
personal cost, sometimes through 
tittle direct fault of their own. 

It is becoming culturally un- 
fashionable to make and sustain 
long-term promises to our mates 
and to our offspring. Such prom- 
ises have never been easy to fulfil; 

The Queen’s role 

From Mr Nevil Johnson 
Sir, Mystery and romanticism 
quickly take hold of any dis- 
cussion of the constitutional role 
of the Crown, as recent correspon- 
dence shows. Yet the Queen as a 
representative Head of State does 
not differ fundamentally from 
several other constitutional mon- 
archs and even elected presidents. 

They too, despite written 
constitutions in various shapes 
and sizes, perform their functions 
mainly on the basis of convention 
and precedent; “constant adapta- 
tion and readaptation" (Mr Philip 
Allott, July 24) is a feature of the 
constitutional evolution of their 
. societies just as much as of ours. 

The course of British constitu- 
tional history over the past cen- 
tury or more confirms the 
conclusion that the Monarch now 
has no constitutional right to 
express opinions publicly on sub- 
stantive policy issues. No doubt 
she has opinions-on such matters 
and, for all we know, may from 
time to time pass them on to her 
Prime Minister. - 

But as Mr Payne (July 24) 
shrewdly observes, we do not 
know whether this is so and can 
thus pass no opinion on the 
Monarch's wisdom or otherwise. 
Indeed, our ignorance dem- 
onstrates the Monarch's surrender 
of any claim to make public her 
views on policy questions. If she 
ventures to warn on such matters, 
she must do so in secret. • 

Does this mean, then, that the 
Sovereign is no more than a land 
ofBagehotian mute, never entitled 
to step outside the anonymity of 
private conversations? I think not 
The Sovereign remains a guardian 
of the Constitution, perhaps a 
guardian of last resort. The Queen 
is committed constitutionally to 

Midwives’ pay 

From Dr John Evans 
Sir, The report (July 16) entitled 
“Midwives to seek parity over 
pay" may give a false impression 
to many people. 

Few would deny the need for a 
pay rise for our “underpaid and 
understaffed midwives". But the 
Royal College of Midwives 
(RCM) claims that they have a 
strong case for parity with junior 
hospital registrars, which is 


selfish drives vie with our capacity 
to care for others. Yet environ- 
mental circumstances can help or 
hinder commitment and growth 
in our relationships. 

A key to healthy development 
throughout the life cycle is to 
know that we are individually 
significant, that we are intrin- 
sically valuable to at least a few 
others whose sustained love and 
acceptance we experience. The 
foundations of such conviction, of 
a secure identity and the related 
capacity to share in love and 
commitment, are laid down in 
childhood; they are often 
imergenerationafly transmitted, 
which bequeathes no small chal- 
lenge for teaching. 

Every child has the right to 
know both its mother and tether, 
or other equivalent long-term 
substitutes such as adoptive par- 
ents, and to receive durable 
commitments from them. No 
rigorous research on child 
development, nor indeed clinical 
practice with children or adults, 
suggests otherwise as ideals for 
policy and teaching. 

of family formation and 
maintenance lie at the heart of 
creating viable societies. There is 
little evidence in this country to 
prompt complacency about these 
issues which should, without fur- 
ther delay, be far more central in 
the nation's business.

the maintenance of representative 
parliamentary government; this is 
the unspoken assumption of the 
Monarch’s existence. 

It means that there are certain 
procedural values — respect for the 
rule of law, for free elections and 
for the privileges of Parliament, 
for example — that the Monarch 
would in extremis have the right 
and duty to uphold publicly. Of 
course, the threat to parliamentary 
government would have to be 
pretty manifest to justify such 
intervention, and if we had 
reached that state of affairs we 
might wdl be past heeding the 
advice of the Monarch anyway. 
Yet the longstop is there. 

The puzzling question in rela- 
tion to the Queen and the 
Commonwealth is whether the 
fete of the Commonwealth is a 
genuine constitutional issue of the 
kind which might entitle the 
Monarch to express a view in 
public. Since the association rests 
on the complete independence of 
its members, I suspect that the 
facts support Enoch Powell's logic 
(feature, July 17). 

Whether the Commonwealth 
survives or not now has little or 
nothing to do with tire British 
Constitution. It is, however, a 
prospect which as matter of public 
policy concerns the British Gov- 
ernment And the Queen must 
adhere publicly to whatever 
conclusions the Government 
reaches on this policy or political 
question; ii is not one on which 
die would have the right to 
express her views publicly here in 
Britain. Nevertheless, it is becom- 
ing apparent that to share our 
Head of State with others may not 
always be without inconvenience.

"A midwife does the same job in

to the obstetric registrar, she

other concurrent medical and

Please consider that the basic 
pay quoted for midwives (£6,500

has undergone an average eight 
year medical training, with 
qualifications beyond MB ChB or 
equivalent 

The registrar receives the 
quoted £15,000 pa for an 80hr

From the Chairman qf the Crown

Sir, The letter of Mr Anthony

impression of the duties of a 
Crown Estate Paving Commis- 
sioner. 

This Commission is responsible 
by statute for the maintenance of 
Paving, Ornamental Enclosure 
and Scavenging in order to con- 
serve and enhance The. Regent's

overlap is not as great as implied 
by the article. Many hospital 
confinements are potentially high 
risk cases. Good obstetric manage- 
ment allows many of these to have 
“norma!" deliveries, and being 
conversant with the history and 
management of these patients is a 
prerequisite to good care and 
correct intentions, as is experience 
with normal deliveries in “low 
risk” pregnancies.

Fighting spirit 

From Mr Colin Billyard 
Sir Your leader of July 18 quite 
correctly highlighted the resource 
and financial inadequacies of the 
provision of sports facilities in 
schools. Physical education has 
always been the poor relation in an 
academic environment However, 
the point of such discussion 
should not be that decline in 
competition leads to a decline in 
the national sporting elite, but that 
competition, per se, is held as the 
be-all and end-all of any physical 
activity called sport 
If we take the “winning" out of 
sport and return to the public 
school ethic penned by Gramland 
Rice at the turn of the century — 
“He marks, not that you won or 
lost but how you played the 
game" — then perhaps our nation 
will, once agam, be respected in 
the world arena of sport

THE TIMES 

ON THIS DAY 


AUGUST 11966 

Tiaeniy years on. this remains 
England'afinest moment in the 
World Cup of football The 
Germans mere not happy about 
the decision that gave England 
their first goal in extra time, some 
of their commentators 
complaining that the result hung 
on the decision of a Russian 
linesman, and they gave their 
team on its return a welcome fit 
more for victors than vanquished. 
Our Football Correspondent was 


writing for The Times for mot 
than 40 years, including the 
coverage of 31 FA Cup finals 


RAMSEY PROVED 
RIGHT IN 
[ WORLD CUP 

[From Out Football 
Correspondent] 

[England 4 West Germany 2] 

England, the pioneers of orga- 
nized football and the home of the 
game, are the new World Champi- 
ons, for the first time. They are Mill 
pinching themselves. 

So. too, are others of us, the 
sceptics, who from the start 
thought the feat beyond our reach. 
But it is no dream. If England, 
perhaps, did not possess the great- 
est flair, they were the best 
prepared in the field, with the best 
temperament based on a functional 
plan. Further to that, they built up 
to a peak. The timing of it was 
good. 

West Germany, twice semi- 
finalists in other years, and the 
surprise holders of 1954, when they 
upset the magnificent Hungarians, 
were beaten fair and square in a 
match of high drama. 

The climax wnm* in a p unishing 
period of an extra half-hour after 
the Germans had first led and then 
saved their necks with an equaliz- 
ing goal at 2-2, a mere 15 seconds 
from the end of normal time. But 
Moore and his men rose magnifi- 
cently to the challenge. Only the 
two sets of actors, down on that 
green stage could have truly felt the 

rh'Qnppornf-mpnt or pliitinn of 

that moment. 

But as England were as yet 
girding themselves for the extend- 
ed test, Mr. Ramsey, their manag- 
er, walked calmly among his men to 
say: “AD right. You let it slip. Now 
start again!” 

Thus the 1966 championships 
were crowned worthily in the 
presence of the Queen and the 
Duke of Edinburgh. Earlier irrita- 
tions were forgotten and the best 
now lingers on. . . 

To add to the swaying excite- 
ment of a match of tiny errors 
punished there rwmp one final 
point for debate. Extra time ap- 
proached its mid-way as Stales, 
now a five-barred gate, set Ball free 
with a long pass down the right. 
Over came the instant centre. 
Hurst trapped, swivelled and thun- 
dered his shot to the underside of 
TDkowski's cross-bar. The ball 
hurtled down to be h e a ded dear by 
Weber. 

Was it over the line or not? It 
was aU a matter of speed of the eye. 
It looked good. The referee consult- 
ed his Russian linesman. The wait 
was agonizing. The answer was 
“goal!”. The Germans protested as 
England, 3-2 ahead, rejoined, and 
the stadium erupted. 

WEST HAM MOVE 

How both sides saw out the last 
stages of a punishing two hours was 
beyond praise. But the final stroke 
of all was perhaps the best of all as 
the book was snapped shut Again 
with only seconds to go, it was 
England’s turn to write finis to it 
all 

Again it was Hurst who did so, 
imperiously. In another West Ham 
move he took a deep pass from 
Moore through the extended Ger- 
man defensive now commit- 
ted to a last despairing attack — 
drove himself onwards to end with 
a rasping left-foot shot that rattled 
Tflkowski's net . . .

Royal wedding 

From Mrs Christine Carter 
Sir. Along with, hundreds of 
thousands of South Africans 1 
have just watched the royal wed- 
ding on television. Because of a 
ban by British unions we were not 
allowed to hear any of the music 
that was performed inside West- 
minster Abbey. South African TV 
substituted similar music during 
the periods of silence but this 
detracted from the beautiful and 
mo Yingceremony. 

The ironical thing is that the 
majority of those of us who were 
watching have ties with Britain, 
and are opposed to apartheid, 
which is the reason for the ban. 
The right-wingers is this country 
were probably not sufficiently 
interested in the Royal Family to 
bother to watch the wedding. 

What really rankles is the 
thought that this programme 
could have been watched by other 
African countries, and elsewhere 
in the world, where there are cruel 
and oppressive regimes.

The complex chemicals which 
control the lmBwn body"5 metB- 
befic activities, compoamfs such 
as insulin and interferon, can 
now be made astride the body by 
cloning techniques. 

Tins involves in se rting (be 
genes for the wanted compounds 
into cultures of bacteria or 
cells and then using the 
cultures to make the hormone or 
' whatever type of natural nwi- 
ecnle is required. 

The same technique can be 
nsed to make vaccines from 
fragments of protein molecules 
taken from viruses. But there are 
severe limitations on the use 
both of bacteria and human cell 
cultures. Now an advance in 
genetic engineering research 
shows how to over come that 
restriction. 

Bacteria are cheap to grow, 
bat they produce their human 
type products in a sfrghtty 
altered and unsatisfactory form, 
which reqnire expensive 
modification after p urifi c ati on. 
Cell cultures are much more 
expensive to grow, and they 
produce their products much 
less proUfically than bacteria 
although the products need no 
further m od ifi cation. 

Now a technique has been 
developed which prodaces hu- 
man type products as prolifically 
as bacteria, yet with no need for 
further modification. 

The technique being nsed by 
MkroGeneSys laboratories, of 
Connecticut in the United 
States, works by har nessin g the 
prod active power of a virus 
which infects caterpillars and is 
known as baculovirns. 

The scientists have exploited 
a mechanism that the virus nses 
so that it is protected after it has 
killed its host. Viruses do not 
sur v ive on their own, they have 
to be incorporated in a host or 
prot e cted m some other way. 

When a caterpillar Infected 
with baodoviras is about to die, 
the infecting vires is able to 
switch oa a geae that stimulates 
its host to generate protein 
molecules that form a protective 
coating for Tiros partfcdes. 


Once the gene is switched on, 
the process works so fast that op 
to a fifth of the caterpillars body 
weight consists of one single 
virus coat protein hy the time the 
grub dies. 

The effect is to provide rapid 
protection for virus -partides 
.ready to infect the new host. 

Wien the gene takes over, the 
code that it carries is transcribed 
into protective protein coat at an 
extraordinary rate through a 
sequence of viral DNA called a 
promoter. 

The trick the scientists have 
played is, first, to insert a gene 
for a wanted compound into the 
baodoviras and, next, to the 
promoter part of the DNA. They 
then infect insect cells 
culture with the altered virus, 
and the cell cultures make the 
wanted compound as rapidly as 
an infected caterpillars tissues 
would make the virus coat 
protein. 

Thus the baculovirns pro- 
moter can be harnessed to speed 
op biotechnology and potentially 
to make Its products cheaper. 
MkroGeneSys have used this 
technique to make an experi- 
mental vaodne for Hepatitas B 
which trill be nsed in dhtical 
trials this autumn. 

A vaodne to protect against 
malaria is being made in the 
same way by the group. 

Some researchers are beOeved 
to be testing the baculovirns 
promoter as a possible means of 
speeding np the production of 
lympbottineg (substances like 
interferoa and interleukin), 
which are the naturally-pro- 
duced compounds that control 
the . activities of the human 
immune system. A number of 
them are being dotted for trials 
as medical drags. 

Tbe outcome of the use of the 
baculovirns promoter could be a 
si gn i fi can t cot in the production 
costs of several drugs and 


vaccines beginning to be 
by dotting techniques.

Headquarters, India, and 
Master-General of the Ord- 
nance, India. 

Clarence August Bird was 
born on February 5, 1885, awl 
educated at Cheltenham Col- 
lege. He joined the Royal 
Engineers in 1904 and bad bis 
first Indian tour of duty from 
1907 to 1913, with the 1st 
Prince of Wales’s Own Sap- 
pers and Miners. 

He returned to Europe in 
1914 with the Indian Expedi- 
tionary Force in France and, 
as a regimental officer respon- 
sible for mining under Ger- 
man defences, was wounded, 
mentioned in despatches and 
awarded the DSO. Subset 
quentiy, be was Staff Officer to

Corps. 

Between the wars he held a 
number of senior appoint- 
ments, among them Chief 
Instructor in Fortification at 
tbe School of Military Engi- 
neering, Chatham, from 1926 


to 1929, before returning to 
India to become Comman- 
dant of King George Own 
Bengal Sappers and Miners. 
Young arrivals to the regiment 
at that time remember their 
OO’s courteous reception of 
them, and his sympathetic 
counsel on the many problems 
they might encounter in an 
unfamiliar land- 

After further home service, 
which included his being 
Chief Engineer, Aldershot 
Command, he was back again 
in India as Engineer-in-Chief, 
Army HQ there. In this post 
he was responsible for over- 
seeing all railway, road, bridge 
and other construction work 
necessary for the prosecution 
of the war against the Japa- 
nese, who, by the end of his 
period of office, bad expelled 
British forces from Burma, 
and were expected to attempt 
tbe assault on India itself. 

From 1942 to 1944 he was, 
as Master-General of the Ord- 
nance, India, in charge of 
research and development, of 
an army equipment, utilising 
local resources where he 
could, or placing contracts 
overseas, to provide the vital 
flow of armaments. 

He retired from the Army in 
1944 but he had plenty mqre 
to give to tbe country in which 
he had served so long. From 

1944 to 1945 he was a regional 
commissioner in the food 
department of the Govern- 
ment of India, and then in 

1945 was appointed special 
officer to implement the 


LORD WOOLLEY 


Lord Woolley, CBE, who. as 
Sir Harold Woolley, was presi- 
dent of tbe National Farmers* 
Union of England and Wales 
from 1960 to 1966, died on 
July 31 at the age of 81. 
Dining the post-war period he 
was a leading figure in nation- 
al and international forming 
politics. 

Harold Woolley was bom 
on February 6, 1 905, in Black- 
burn, of a family active in 
Lancashire county affairs. He 
was educated at Blackburn 
Grammar School and 
Woodhouse Grove School, 
Yorkshire. 

On leaving school, he spent 
two winters at the Lancashire 
School of Agriculture and then 
went to a form in Cheshire to 
work and learn, at a time when 
it was normal to milk 20 cows 
by hand in tbe early morning 
and then spend the day 
ploughing behind a team of 
horses. He started on his own 
account on 150acresat the age 
of 20 in 1925. . . 

Afier the passing of theT 947 
Agriculture Act the NFU, as 
the largest union in the coun- 
try, assumed an even mine 
important role as the 
industry’s main economic 
negotiator. 

Woolley achieved early 
prominence within it as one of 
the ablest of the younger men. 
He soon came to the fore in 
committee work, was elected 
vice-president in 1948 and 
deputy president in 1949 and 
1950 to James Turner (after- 
wards Lord Netherthorpe). 

For nine years he was 
chairma n of the union's par- 
liamentary committee when it 
was much' concerned with 
land use and the problems 
arising from the growth of 
open-cast mining; and for six 
years be led the employers' 
side on the Agricultural Wages 
Board. He was also chairman 
of tbe Agricultural Appren- 


ticeship Council in its forma- 
tive years. 

Though he was not in any 
salaried office when Turner 
retired in 1960, the majority of 
counties saw him as the most 
suitable candidate for what 
was likely to be adifficult post. 

His predecessor was a very 
dominant figure; his successor 
would have to use subtle 
means to control an organiza- 
tion representing a great range 
of not always consistent 
interests. 

The extent to which Wool- 
ley succeeded may be judged 
from the fact that he was 
continually re-elected without 
opposition, despite the feeling 
at the time ofhis appointment 
that presidential terms should 
again be limited. 

An accomplished public 
speaker, though sometimes 
too conscious of any thin ice 
he might be crossing, he did 
his best work was done behind 
the scenes; and, as negotiator, 
be could be both tough and 
realistic without making many 
enemies.. - - 

Though the union, under 
his presidency, did launch out 
in new directions, be raw the 
political issue of adequate 
support for form incomes as 
central To this end, he kept 
the union free from party 
entanglements and main- 
tained its contacts across party 
lines, though his own politics 
were probably more to the 
right than those of his 
predecessor. 

His activities were by no 
means confined to Britain and 
be became well-known in 
Europe, the United States and 
the Commonwealth. But he 
was happier dealing with the 
English-speaking countries 
than with Europe, and union 
thinking was not altogether on 
the side of the Brussels negoti- 
ators when tbe first applica- 


tion for entry into the EEC 
was being discussed. 

The policy he advocated 
looked to wider regulation of 
food production through in- 
ternational commodity agree- 
ments, coupled with the 
development of a world food 
programme. 

A sudden illness removed 
him from tbe centre of the 
1965 price review negotia- 
tions, which resulted in an 
award which the majority of 
his members found quite in- 
adequate. He came back from 
convalescence to lead the “fair 
deal” campaign, which the 
union ran through the follow- 
ing summer ana autumn in 
favour of renewed agricultural 
expansion. 

In 1965, Woolley foiled, for 
the first time, to get the 85 per 
cent vote of the council 
necessary for re-election as 
president and he passed from 
the centre of the farming stage. 

In spite of a consistently 
hectic schedule, be had always 
contrived Co continue forming 
actively. This was done, he 
revealed, “by telephone every 
morning and with mud on my 
boots at the weekend”. In his 
later years, be successfully 
formed 500 acres on tbe 
Cheshire plain. 

Though he was a keen 
follower of Rugby football, 
cricket and foxhunting in 
earlier years, pressure of work 
later reduced this to riding in 
Rotten Row, where he was a 
familiar figure in the early 
morning. 

He was awarded tbe CBE in 
1958, knighted in 1954. and 
made a life peer in 1967. 

His first wife, Martha Jeffs, 
whom he married in 1926, 
died in 1936; and his second 
wife. Hazel Jones, whom he 
married the following year, 
died in 1975. There were four 
sons of the first marriage and 
two daughters of the second. 


MR MICH AE L SACHER 


Mr Michael Sacher, FRSA, 
FRFSL, whose life was spent 
in the service of Marks and 
Spencer where he was vice- 
chairman from 1972 to 1984, 
died on July 29. He was 68. 

Michael Moses Sacher was 
born in Manchester on Octo- 
ber 17, 1917, the eldest son of 
Harry Sacher, an influential 
journalist in his time and a 
leader writer on the Manches- 
ter Guardian, and Miriam 
Marks, a daughter of Michael 
Marks, one of the company’s 
founders. 

In 1921.. the Sacher family 
went to live in Palestine, the 
father to practise as a barrister, 
the sons to learn Hebrew and 
to begin their formal educa- 
tion. A formative event for the 
right-year-old Michael at this 
time was attending the official 
opening of tbe Hebrew Uni- 
versity of Jerusalem. In later 
life be was to become one ofits 
governors. 

Back in England in 1930. he 
continued his education at St 
Paul's School and New Col- 
lege, Oxford. He joined Marks 
and Spencer in 1938 and 
began his career at 
Hammersmith. 

Tbe following year, with the 
outbreak of war, he joined the 
Army and was commissioned 


in the Royal Army Service 
Corps. He later recalled how 
be was immediately put in 
charge of a convoy of buses - 
“A compliment to my training 
in M&S food departments”. 

He saw active service in the 
Western Desert before gradu- 
ating from the Haifa staff 
college in 1943 with the rank 
of major. He was then at- 
tached as a liaison, officer to 
General. Leclerc’s headquar- 
ters m North Africa, and to the 
Allied Armies in Italy. 

But he was never tempted to 
make the Army bis career. 
“When you’re born into a 
business, you have to get 
confidence in yourself else- 
where. My army service gave 
me that”. 

Back in dvihan life, Skfcer 
resumed his career with the 
company and, in 1948, was 
made group merchandise 
manager, with personnel food 
departments and store opera- 
tions also under his control. 
His forte was administration, 
a role in which his incisive 
mind served him well. A 
steady rise through the com- 
pany hierarchy culminated 
with his appointment as vice- 
chajman in 1972, a post he 
held for 12 years. 


Sacher maintained a dose 
and active association with 
Israel He was a member of the 
executive and a governor of 
the Jewish Agency, dealing 
with the resettlement of immi- 
grants in IsraeL He was a 
governor of both the Weiz- 
mann Institute Foundation 
and the Reali School, Haifa, 
and a director of the Jewish 
National Fund Charitable 
Trust In these capacities, be 
travelled widely raising nion- 
ey and deriding bow it ought 
to be spent 

A man of quiet reserve, 
Sadler’s contribution to the 
company, perhaps less 
colourful than some. was. just 
as important His abiding 
pastime was philately and he 
had a fine collktion of Middle 
pastern, including Palestinian, 
issues, on which subject be 
had published several papers; 
He was a Fellow of the Royal 
Philatelic Society, London. 

A devoted family man; he 
married, in 1938, Audrey 
Glucksman, who predeceased 
him in 1984. -He married 
again, earlier this year, Janice 
Puddephatt who survives 
him together with, three sons 
and two daughters of his first 
marriage. *

Woodhead Famine 

Commission’s recommenda- 
tions for increasing the food 
supply and improving the 
nutrition of the peoples of 
India, at a time of appalling 
hardship and famine. This 
task he discharged in a man- 
ner which was much admired. 

On his return to England he 
served from 1947 to 1948 as 
Divisional Food Officer for 
the North Midlands, at a 
period when home food sup- 
ply, too, was still greatly 
affected by the ravages of war. 

From 1948 to 1953 he was 
chairman of Rhodesia 
Railways. 

As a leader Bird was of the 

J ihilosophicai rather than the 
iery type. He led - and, at that, 
men of many races and creeds 
. hy persuasion, not coercion. 
His mental equipment was of 
the highest order, and contin- 
ued to function lucidly into 
extreme old age. 

Thus, in his nineties, bed- 
ridden after a hip-joim opera- 
tion, he was to be found sitting 
up. re-reading The Intelligent 
Woman !s Guide to Socialism, 
and engaging any callers in 
disciisssion as to whether 
anything had really changed 
under the economic heaven in 
half a century. 

He married, in 1919, Doro- 
thea Marian Nichols, MBE, 
(and later, a holder of the 
Kaisar-i-Hind Medal). She 
died in 1 982. One of their two 
sons was killed on active 
service in India in 1943. The 
other survives them.

Dance: John Percival reviews a triumphant Bolshoi revival 

Shostakovich’s smash-hit 


The Golden Age 
Co vent Garden 

First and foremost, it has to be 
said that Shostakovich's mu- 
sic for The Golden Age is 
marvellously light, bright and 
entertaining. . Unknown until 
now in London except for 
short extracts, it proves to be 
full of good tunes, coIourfuDy 
arranged, that never lose in- 
. terest throughout the ballet’s 
three acts. It would make tbe 
basis of a thunderingly good 
musical, and I say that with-' 
out denigrating its quality as a 
ballet score, better than any 
other of comparable length to 
come from Soviet Russia ex- 
cept — in a very different style 
— Prokofiev’s Cinderella. 

Written m 1930, it is en- 
tirety of its period but with an 
enduring spirit and indiv- 
iduality. There are quite a few 
allusions to western music of 
the Roaring Twenties, from 
the use of a deliciously dec- 
adent soprano saxophone to 
tbe set of variations on “Tea 

Burly body, wild hair, 
savage frown: tbe eccentric 
but prodigious talent of Irek 
Mukhamedov, with Natalya 
Bessmertnova 


for Two" which open the the occasional poetically evoc- 
second act The reason this ative nimbus. With a mini- 
score has remained in ob- mum of change these put the 
scurity is that h was written to action firmly in a street by the 
a libretto which won a literary . port, the main room or back- 
competition but proved both stage at the night-club, or 


silly and ideologically un- 
sound once the ballet was 
staged. Employing no fewer 
than four choreographers for 
the original production may 
have helped spoO the broth, 
too. 

The Bolshoi Ballet's Yuri 
Grigorovich, taking up the 
score half a century after the 
ballet’s ignominious flop, has 
abandoned the original story 
about Russian footballers at a 
western trade feir in favour of 
his own plot, involving virtu- 
ous sailors who double as agit- 
prop street entertainers, and 
how they frustrate the knavish 
tricks of a decadent night-dub 
hoodlum with a thriving trade 
in robbery on the side. It is, I 
suspect, no more sound ideo- 
logically than the first version, 
and not much less silly either, 
but the ballet has other merits. 

Chief among these are the 
designs by Simon Viisaladze 
— not so much the costumes 
(although the hats and dose- 
cropped wigs are fun) as the 
settings, pure 1920s style with 
tbeir triangular patterns, re- 
lieved by painted slogans and 


various sinister spots in 
between. 

Let me not bother you with 
details of the plot, since I am 
pretty sure that Grigorovich 
himself does not take it very 
seriously, otherwise he would 
hardly have this capitalist 
audience in its £40 seats 
applauding the triumph of the 
workers. It is really just an 
excuse for the dancing, and 
with Grigorovich that auto- 
matically means male dancing 
(only B£jart and MacMillan, 
the two western choreog- 
raphers most like him in many 
respects, can march his male 
chau vinism). 

True, there is a host of tango 
girls at the night-dub. and a 
squad of womenfolk to gaze 
admiringly at the brave fisher- 
men; there is even a not very 
plausible love-story (for which 
Grigorovich borrows slow 
movements from the two 
piano concertos) involving a 
pure young girl (Natalya 
Bessmertnova) rescued from a 
tawdry life, and a bad girl who 
dies to save her. But wbat 
brings the cheers is the sight of 


the bandit gang, interrupted in 
its dirty work, chased across 
the stage by streams of dean- 
living sailors in full flight, with 
virtuous young Boris at their 
head. Especially when Boris is 
played, as he was on Wednes- 
day. by Irek Mukhamedov. 

Even more than as Ivan the 
Terrible, he displays here an 
eccentric but prodigious tal- 
ent. 1 read that he plays sweet 
romantic heroes too, but find 
it bard to imagine this great 
burly body, this wild hair and 
savage frown, in such parts. 
He seems born for fierce 
heroism and feats of virtuos- 
ity. Perhaps there are names 
for some of the steps be 
performs in The Golden Age ; 
but many of them seem new- 
minted: there are amazing acts 
of daring as he twists himself 
into fantastic new shapes 
while hurtling through the air. 

Obviously the rest of the 
cast is not going to match this 
standard, but there is vig- 
orous, high-soaring power on 
display from quite a few of the 
young men who follow their 
leader through the manoeu- 
vres of the big chase and the 
celebratory last scene. Among 
the women. Tatyana Goli- 
kova’s pert flair and flamboy- 
ant manner as tbe villain's 
naughty girlfriend are notable.

more prepared to sit (or stand) 
for long periods in apprecia- 
tion of Bruckner's tanker-like 
musical processes than were 
the composer’s Viennese con- . 
te m po rari es, who impatiently 
chopped and rewrote the sym- 
phonies whenever they were 
l^^odtwhich was rarely. - 

This performance of the 
Fourth Symphony seemed 
most assured in the outer 
movements. Sir John Prit- 


chard's experience was ev- 
ident in the slight quickening 
of the lyrical string passages, 
.the manner in. which -the 
dance-like nature of the first 
movement's second subject 
was . pointed up, .and the 
disarmed drawing-out of the 
crescendo8,.especially the last, 
majestic one. His interpreta- 
tion had few quirks: a big 
introduced at the up- 
rthe finale’s first dimax 
was one rare luxury. Indeed 
the only disappointing fea- 
tures were the horn playing — 
at times an ugly, obtrusive 
sound when the players 
should have been striving fora 
glowing richness. — and the 
splashy, uncoordinated arti- 
culation of the big unisons. 

Pritchard’s handling of the 
middle movements, however, 
seemed a mod deal sleepier. 
Little of Bruckner’s “quasi 
allegretto” marking was 
noticeable about his some- 
tunes rather flaccid drift 
die slow movement, 
the mellow, misty 
quality which the BBC Sym- 
ly Orchestra’s weQ-en- 
tower suing sections 
brought to their respective 
melodies was admirable. The 
“hunt** scherzo, loo, was sim- 
ply too painstaking. One won- 


dered what was being hunted 
— a thimble, perhaps. The 
trouble with a wild movement 
like this is that, the more the 
exact letter of the seme is 
observed, the more elusive its 
spi rit proves. 

Little of the spirit of Elgar’s 
Violin Concerto escapes Ida 
Haendel these days: hers is a 
wonderfully rounded, natural 
performance, as happy push- 
ing impulsively through tbe 
as musing 
over -the “wind- 
flower” themes, often adding 
some choice, (and entirely 
idiomatic) portamentL Only 
one somewhat ripe upward 
slither in the Andante seemed 
miscalculated or, rather, too 

She also displayed a broad 
range of timbre, particularly 
when characterizing the. ca- 
denza’s fleeting reminis- 
cences. At times -.a tension 
developed between her subtle, 
lithe touches of rubato and 
Pritchard’s more, broadly 
shaped accompaniment The 
brass were surety too widely 
spaced for such an intricately- 
woven piece. whatever prob- 
lems of balance there might 
have been. ^

“In a way, the Bomb is tbe 
only thing worth writing 
about”, declares Brian Clark 
in the programme. This 
thought has occurred to other 
playwrights over the past few

ended with a whimper. 

The danger lies in overt 
proselytizing, in staking out 
crude ideological polarities 
and hoping that some kind of 
dramatic current will be gen- 
erated between them by virtue 
of the audience's necessary

opens with just such a schism, 
decorates it for an hour or so

Desert Hearts, an excellent, ada, 
tion of Jane Rule's novel Desert of the 
Heart , opens and' doses at tbe Reno 
train station m 1 959. The first frames 
show Vivian Bell — a severely-- 
dressed, tight-lipped professor of- 
English literature from New York — 
stepping on tbe platform carrying a 
suitcase and years of emotional 
repression. “I want to be free of who 
I've been” she tells her divorce 
lawyer. But her stay at tbe dude ranch 
for would-be divorcees prompts a 
radical reassessment of her capabili- 
ties. She becomes drawn to the ranch- 
owner's surrogate daughter Cay, a 
lesbian employed at one of the 
casinos. Wanned by Cay's love, the 
ice in Vivian thaws: in a town famous . 
for gambling, she conquers her confu- 
sion and gambles on a new 
relationship!! 

Desert Hearts masks the auspicious 
feature debut of the director Donna 
Deitch, whose background lies in 
documentaries, photography and 
editing. These last skills helped 
particularly to give her film - shot in 
a month, entirety on location — its 
amazing grace and poire. Scenes are 
edited together with majestic wipes or 
fades, to black, suggesting the slow 
passage of hours crucial to tbe story's 
unfolding. The bizarre Reno milieu is 
gauged with equal precision, from the 
scrub-bound ranch, to the jangling, 
gaudy casinos and the marriage- 
parlour where the officiant refers to 
God as ”the gentleman upstairs” . 
Period pop music! so often used 
simply as a marketing device, is 
subtly positioned for counterpoint 
and commentary; 

Deitch holds her players m a secure 
grip, despite limited experience with 
performers. Helen Shaver's angular 
face proves a perfect vessel for 
Vivian's intense emotional turmoil; 
while Patricia Charbonneau. from the •

The 


New York stage, manages the 
conflicting sides of Gtys personality 

— robustness, tenderness, generosity, 
fear — with remarkable agility. Fu- 
elled by vibrant performances and an 
expert script that articulates feelings 
without ascending into wordy douds, 
Desert Hearn rises for above such 
pigeon-hole categories as the nostal- 
gic period drama or-tbe lesbian love- 
story. Batch’s film is a passionate, 
beautifully controlled drama about 
making choices, and .exerqisuHg ihe 
heart: in a word, about living. 

- This is-the week for time-travelling. 
Desert Hearts aside, Purple Hose 
plunges us into the bubbling crucible 
of 1968. while in Maxie a Twenties 
flapper trifled in her. prime returns, 
with her slang and insouciance, to 
haunt- the couple living in her old 
apartment Both films, however, 
crumble into dust beside the original 
King Kong, revived in a new print 
strode from the original negative. In 
the years since 1933 dnemas have 
been deluged with outsize beasts and 
prehistoric survivors up to no good 
with capital dries and leading ladies. 
But no other monster has gone on the 
rapipage with quite Kong's character 
and ferocity: no one has become such 
an icon, celebrated in T-shirts, paper- 
weights, costumes for hire and all the 
paraphernalia of popular culture. 
King Kong stands alone, too, in 
taming the forces of myth and fairy- 
tale. For this — as the film producer 


portrayed by Robert Armstrong ob- 
serves more than once - is essentially 
the story of Beauty and the Beast, 
where Beauty is an actress plucked 
from the streets to star in a for-flung 
adventure and the Beast is her huge, 
hirsute leading man. discovered on 
location. 

Kong, of course, often surfaces on 
television. But the small screen can 
only hint at the eerie visual at- 
mosphere achieved by Willis 
O'Brien's special effects team. True, 
the present print’s darby spotlights 
the back-projected footage, the ape's 
mechanical movements and paws of 
various sizes. But look at the gain in 
detail: the sly. twinkling eyes: the fur 
flickering strangely, like a cornfield; 
the jungle landscape of trees and vine, 
stretching away with tbe 'profusion 
and depth of a Gustave Dore engrav- 
ing And, as with all films designed to 
tease and scare, King Kong needs a 
large, captive audience to work its full' 
magic 

Kong , in fact, teases a good deat 
almost 40 minutes are spent prepar- 
ing the ground as Armstrong’s crew 
and his co-opted heroine (the scream- 
ing Fay Wray) sail to their uncharted 
island. In these earty scenes the film 
reveals its historical roots. The 
Armstrong character comes across 
like a blunt comic caricature of the 
film's directing team. Merian C. 
Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack. 
intrepid photographers of exotica like 


Chang or Gow, the Head Hunter. The 
' heroine is another period figure: a 
victim of the Depression, introduced 
stealing an apple. Tbe whole film, 
indeed, is an escapist stunt much like 
Armstrong's exhibition of Kong in a 
Broadway theatre, showering its audi- 
ence wife pioneering shocks and 
spectacle. 

Purple Haze, shot in 1981 by the 
Canadian tausband-and-wife team of 
David Burton Morris (director) and 
Victoria Wozniak (writer), spins its 
tale of perplexed, bitter youth with 
textbook correctness and docility. 
Expelled from Princeton in 1968 for 
the wrong land of smoking, scholar- 
ship boy Matt returns home to a 
Victorian melodrama. “You look like 
a god-damned gbi — When are you 
gomg to wise up?” the heavy father 
barks. Matt embarks on a hippie 
spree with a chem icaljy -dependent 
high-school chum, but wises up 
slightly when the Draft Board looms. 

Emotion recollected in tranquillity 
can bring dividends, as Wordsworth 
proved, but there is little sign of 
mature insight here. By relying so 
much on tbe youth revolution’s 
surface trappings, the Morrises render 
their heroes persistently unsym- 
pathetic; only during the scenes 
showing draftees waiting to be 
whisked off by coach to the hell of 
Vietnam does the film achieve a 
simple eloquence. Possibly some 
personal ghosts were exorcized by the 
film-makers in private - the material 
is supposedly semi-autobiographical 
— but the struggle is never apparent 
on screen. Tbe unexciting cast was 
drawn from actors in the Minneapo- 
lis - St Paul area, where the film was 
shot 

Maxie is a curiosity: a whimsical 
supernatural comedy, vaguely aimed 
at audiences that no longer go to tbe 
cinema. The source material is a 
novel by Jack Finney, the man 
behind the 1955 sdence-ficfion clas- 
sic Invasion of the Body . Snatchers. 
Body-snatching seems a Finney ob- 
session. for Maxie. the wfld Twenties 
flapper, returns from the dead to 
inhabit the sober body of Jan, 
secretary to a Catholic bishop. Tbe 
expected happens: Maxie goes on the 
town and perks up the love-life of 
Jan's husband. Then the unexpected 
happens: Maxie engineer her life's 
ambition — a fat movie part — by 
snaring the role of Cleopatra. That 
Hollywood could countenance a 
Cleopatra after the 1963 debacle is 
but one of countless wrong notes 
struck by this gauche production, 
indifferently directed by Paul Aaron 
(from television). Glenn Gose and 
Mandy Patinkin. the leading players, 
deserve so much better. 


though there could never be 
any communication between 
the two worlds. 

Communication (and plot) 
arrives when Edmund discov- 
ers a full-page declaration in 
The Times abhorring the 
possibility that Britain’s nu- 
clear weaponry could ever be 
used as a “first strike” The 
signatories are “reds, queers, 
out-of-work thespians”, and 
Lady Elizabeth Milne. Ed- 
mund's sense of betrayal rap- 
idly fuels a debate on tbe issue, 
and exposition floods the 
stage: die has secretly been 
voting Labour since 1945, But 
rather thinks that life is more 
important than politics; he 
thinks the Bomb has been 
jolly successful at preventing 
conventional war. 

The threat of nuclear im- 
molation is no laughing mat- 
ter, and neither is this play, 
although it must be said that 
National audiences seem 
increasingly to be following 
their counterparts on the 
north bank in lapping up 
flaccid jokes. Mr Clark's 
intention is obviously to de- 


flect the suspicion that he is 
using Elizabeth as a mouth- 
piece for his own ideas (which 
are, unfortunately, as run-of- 
the-mill in conception and 
utterance as Edmund's) by 
charming us with a portrait of 
a 50-year marriage fraught 
with simmering antagonisms 
and, therefore, a species of war 
in itself 

It might have helped his 
scheme if he had refrained 
from spelling out this connec- 
tion in the dialogue — again, 
the characters are being for too 
helpful in thus setting out 
their stalls (to quote the 
football commentators) — but 
it does at least soften us up for 
the sucker-punch right before 
the interval, when Elizabeth 
reveals that she has known for 
the past nine months that she 
had only-a year to live. 

This is where Sir John Mills, 
who hitherto has been dap- 
pering about like a very 
superior floor-walker, begins 
to show off some technique in 
a- slow-motion retreat of 
speechless shock that seems to 
last a good minute of refresh- 


ing silence. It is also where Mr 
Clark (author of Whose Life is 
it Anyway?) begins to worm 
further inside the relationship 
with an examination of dif- 
ferent kinds of betrayal, and 
the Bomb assumes a well- 
deserved back seat. 

Sir Peter Hall’s production 
keeps the caravan moving 
forward through tbe cross- 
winds of speech-making, al- 
though the players' hand 
movements are excessive and 
at times puppet-like: so much 
emphasis for so little content 
Rosemary Harris makes ade- 
quate use of her fluting voice 
to suggest the pointedly ironic 
foil that Elizabeth has become. 
As for Sir John, it is hearten- 
ing for anyone who has spent 
some of the more significant 
moments of childhood watch- 
ing him up to his neck in muck 
and bullets to see him now in 
civvies, bracing his shoulders 
as though against the ghost of 
a squaddie's pack or rehears- 
ing a dignified slow march 
across the living-room carpet

Air plot 
to free 
Israelis 
foiled 

By David Sapsted 

Tight security was in force 
at Norwich prison last night 
after the discovery of an 
escape plot to airlift three 
Israelis being held on a £5 mil- 
lion drug smuggling charge. 

But while security was being 
stepped up inside the prison, 
four other inmates cut their 
way to freedom from an 
adjoining low-security wing. 

United Slates Federal Bu- 
reau of Investigation (FBI) 
authorities warned the Home 
Office on Wednesday of a plot 
to land a helicopter in the yard 
of the medium-security prison 
and free the Israelis, held on 
charges of planning to import 
two tons of hashish. 

Another Israeli, Abraham 
Abronovich. aged 31, had 
earlier been arrested by the 
FBI in Philadelphia for alleg- 
edly attempting to recruit a 
US helicopter pilot to come to 
Britain to fly out the prisoners. 

Mr Andrew Barclay, the 
Norwich prison governor, in- 
troduced what the Home Of- 
fice described as “certain 
precautions" aimed at foiling 
any escape attempt. 

But early yesterday, the four 
other prisoners were found to 
have broken out of their 
dormitory in the night and 
stolen wire cutters from a 
prison workshop. They then 
cut through the inner and 
outer perimeter fences and 
escaped unnoticed. 

David John Glynn, aged 31, 
serving nine months for theft 
and assault, Thomas Ashley 
Cooper, aged 24, serving nine 
months for handling stolen 
goods, and Kenneth St Clair, 
aged 30. serving 39 months for 
burglary, were recaptured late 
yesterday in a field dose to 
Norwich police station. 

Anthony Shilling, aged 23, 
who had served five weeks ofa 
two-year term, with one year 
suspended, for handling stolen 
goods, was still at large. None 
of the men was regarded as 
dangerous. 

In Philadelphia, the US 
District Attorney's office said 
that Abronovich had allegedly 
offered £35,000 to a pilot at 
Philadelphia's North East Air- 
port, who alerted the FBL

Labour charges Kilroy-Silk 
with ietting down his side’ 


By Sheila Gunn, Political Staff 


Labour MPs yesterday ac- 
cused Mr Robert Kilroy-Silk 
of “letting his own side down” 
by his claim that be is resign- 
ing as Labour MP for 
Knowsley North because of 
the Militant Tendency. 

There was also dismay that 
publication of his book Hard 
Labour — the Political Diary 
of Mr Robert Kilroy-Silk, 
describing his three-year battle 
with the Militants, will co- 
incide with the start of the 
Labour Party annual con- 
ference on September 29. 

Mr Kilroy-Silk, the party's 
former home affairs spokes- 
man. had. in effect, won bis re- 
selection fight when his main 
rival. Mr Tony Mulheam, was 
ousted from the Labour Party 
because of his support for 
Militant 

But an investigation is 
planned into alleged irregular- 


ities in the general manage- 
ment committee. 

Party managers held urgent 
meetings yesterday to ctaade 
how to fight the aut umn by- 

elecrion for the Merseyside 
seat 

The Conservatives were 
quick to announce that Mr 
Roger Brown, aged 35, a 
barrister from Bury, Lan- 
cashire, will be tbeir 
candidat e. 

The Liberals, who have yet 
to pick the Alliance candidate, 
are obviously optimistic about 
benefitting from Labour’s 
misfortunes. * 

Mr Neil Kitmock, the La- 
bour leader, said it was rub- 
bish for Mr Kilroy-Silk to 
claim that his resignation was 
due to his long battle with 
Militants in his constituency. 

Mr Eddie Loyden, Labour 
MP for Liverpool Garston, 


said: “Mr Kilroy-Silk has 
maligned the Labour Party in 
Liverpool and accused them 
of outrageous things. It is 
obvious to me that he is 
moving on to better things." 

Mr Martin Flannery, La- 
bour MP for Sheffield 
Hillsborough, said: “Mr 
Kilroy-Silk had been more 
dragged towards a fat job in 
the BBC than kicked out by 
Militant 

“It is a shock becanse he has 
not really considered the 
party. He has considered 
himself”. Mr Kilroy-Silk, wfao 
once said be wanted to be 
Prime Minister, replied that 
the BBC job offer was a 
coincidence.

Dynasty look gets 
the cold shoulder 

By Snzy Menkes, Fashion Editor 


Paris fashion has come up 
with a New Look — and not 
just the full can-can skirts that 
Chanel sent whirling down the 
runway. 

Designers are changing the 
fashionable silhouette by giv- 
ing the Dynasty look the cold 
shoulder. The strapless bod- 
ice, the boat neck and the off- 
the- shoulder gown are potting 
the focus on the naked nape. 
And as the giant shoulder pads 
shrink bad; to normal, the 
emphasis is oo the bared back, 
the shapely bodice or a swirl of 
a skat. 

.The luxury and opulence 
that have marked the recent 
renaissance of haute couture 
are abo declining along with 
the petrodollar. Instead of the 
encrustations of embroidery, 
there is the rustle of 
featheriigfat taffeta or a drape 
of duchess «tin. The latest 
line feathers are just that: cock 


feathers dyed extraordinary 
colours 

Hemlines come short or 
long, with Ungaro's coats 
sweeping the ground and 
Charters knee- high skirts 
puffed out over layers of 
petticoat to look like mini 
crinolines. The influential 
Golden Thimble Award for the 
best couture collection was 
won yesterday by Karl 
Lagerfeld 

The newest name in Paris is 
35-yearoId Christian Lacroix, 
who is doing for die old- 
established bouse of Jean 
Patou, what Karl Lagerfeld 
has done for ChaneL Lacroix 
brought back the narrow- 
shouldered Jackie Kennedy 
coat, the high-wasted baby 
doll dress and the trapeze Hue 
skirt. And that new triangle 
silhouette turns the wide- 
sbonldered Dynasty look on 
its head. 


A million 
children 
‘seized for 
sex trade’ 

From Tony Samstag 
Oslo 

One million young children, 
aged 3 or more, arc kid- 
napped, sold or otherwise 
forced onto the international 
sex market the Norwegian 
Government said yesterday. 

The Ministry - of Justice was 

launching a campaign against 
the global traffic in child 
pornography and prostitution, 
which it said was worth an 
estimated S2 billion (£1.3 
billion) annually in the United 
States alone. 

It identified neighbouring 
Denmark as one of the Euro- 
pean centres through which 
the children were funnelled on 
route to North America or 
some of the Arab countries. 

West Germany and The 
Netherlands were also in- 
volved in the trade, a spokes- 
man said. 

Most of the children are 
drawn from the Third World, 
with TTiailand. Indo-China 
and the Philippines among the ■/ 
more prominent sources, ac- *> 
cording to the Norwegians. 

But the statistics can fluc- 
tuate wildly. 


Mass pickets 
banned, 
at Wapping 

Continued from page 1 

demonstrators outside the 
Wapping plant were organized 
by the unions. “I find it hard 
to believe that day after day, 
for six months, 50 to 200 print 
workers and some of their 
families assembled sponta- 
neously from all over London 
and may be further afield, at 
their own expense, to signify 
by tbeir presence the depth of 
their feelings.” 

Mr Justice Sluart-Smith 
said he had no doubt that 
some at least of the defendants 
believed they and other union 
members had been outwitted 
and even duped by the com- 
pany over the move to 
Wapping. 

The NGA said last night it 
was consulting its legal advis- 
ers about the implications of 
the judgement and would be 
issuing a full statement later.

Food prices 


• For various reasons the En- 
glish summer vegetable season 
is rather imw than natal Broad 
beans at 30p-40p a pound and 
French beans at 50p-60p are of 
variable quality. Runner beans 
are tempting but still expensive 
at 80p-£l a pound, but peas are 
generally good value at 35] 
Courgettes are pie 
excellent at 25p-35p a pound 
and good salad buys include 
cucumbers at 35p45p each, 
crisp and delicious iceberg let- 
tuces at 40p-60p each and 
Webbs 25p-30p, and tomatoes 
35p-45p a pound. Watercress, a 
versatile ingredient for soups 
and salads, is 25p-35p a bunch. 

Raspberries must be the ob- 
vious fruit buy at this time of 
year at 25p-35p a quarter pound, 
and they keep well in the freezer. 
St ra wber ri e s are coming to an 
end and are up in price az 60p- 
7 Op a half pound. Other lovely 
summer fruit are Mediterranean 
nectarines and peaches at 10p* 
30p each, depending on size, 
and in some shops kilogramme 
punnets sell for as little as £!- 
Imported plums are generally 
disappointing, however. 

Supplies of fish are reason- 
able, with large cod around 
£1.75 a pound, haddock £1.77. 
whiting £1.40, and plaice £1.85. 
Best buys include coley at about 
9!p a pound, fresh herring at 
86p and fresh mackerel 63p. For 
a special treat Marks & Spencer 
are offering two salmon steaks, 
reduced from £5.50 to £4.99. 

Generally, meat prices show 
almost no changes at aft. but 
Sainsbory’s have whole leg of 
English lamb at £1.48 a pound, 
whole shoulder at 78p and best 
end neck chops al£1.78. In Asda 
whole kg is cheaper still at £ 1 39 
a pound. Pork chops, excellent 
for barbecues, are £1 36 a pound 
in Dewfaurst and Baxters, and 
pork leg fillet end is down to 
£1.15.

powered bade into profitabil- 
ity last year and saw its £1.7 
bfltion loss caused' the 
miners' strike converted intoa 
£414miflion net profit. 

Announcing the results, Sr 
Philip Jones, chairman of the 
Electricity Council, also gave a 
dear indication that electricity 
prices should remain stable 
for another nine months and 
might be reduced further 
following the 3 .5 per cent cut 
in domestic and business tar- 
iffs be instituted in June: - 

Electricity prices had fallen 
in real terms over the last five 
years by about 10 per cent, he 
said, and the new five-year 
deal to buy cheaper coal from 
British Coal offered “immedi- 
ate. and long term price 
advantages” for the industry's 
21 milli on customers.. 

Sir Philip's comments come : 
a week after Sir Denis Rooks, 
chairman of British Gas, said 
he hoped for a price cut next 
year. The £& bQhon British 
Gas privatization is scheduled 
for November, and tbe. Gov- 
ernment cleariy would like to 
see electricity follow it into 
private ownership. 

Sir Philip said the .current 
price reduction should remain 
in force until next - April 
Meanwhile, the industry 
would be reviewing the impact 
of tower fuel prices and infla- 
tion, high sales and improved 
effiaency and he would make 


customers . can . .rest assured 
that we will be doing all fiat 
we can to see thai prices will 
be kept as low as possible.” 

The industry is aiming to 
cut costs by 6.1 per cent a year 
in the five years to 1987-88 
and despite the strike, has 
achieved a 4.6 percent cut by 
1985-86. The industry em- 


were up by 10 billion units to 
213 Itillion, four per cent 
higher that tbe previous 
record year of 1978-79. 
Domestic sales were up 4.6 per 
cent, industrial by 4.5 per cent 
and commercial by 12 per

The rivalry between 
electricity and gas intensified 
with Sir Philip repeating his 
view that .fire substitution of 
electricity for oil and gas was 
in the. national interest “In 
doing this we will be transfer-

British Rail makes £120m 
from sales and lettings 


TEMPUS 


By Christopher Warmaa, Property C or respondent 



British Rail realized over 
£120 million from the sale and 
letting of railway property in 
the year to Mart* 31, Sir 
James Swaffield, chairman of 
the British RaS Property 
Board, announced yesterday. 

Gross sates receipts were 
£81.7 million compared with 
the previous IS months' total 
of £152.8 million. Rental 
growth of 6 per cent was 
achieved and after revenue 
losses through sales, gross 
letting income was £69.6 ‘ 
mfltion. 

The Property Board is 
preparing to dispose of all its 
registered land as soon as 
possible. Sir James said the 
board had exceeded its targets 
for the year, and was pleased 
that even though 1984-85 was 
the peak year for planned 
disposals, 1985^6 sales still 
reached over £81 milKon 
through more than 1,700 in- 
dividual sales. 

S ir James said the aicb 


refurbishment policy had been 
successful. “Not only does 
arch refurbishment produce 
good income results, but also 
as a by-product it improves 
the environment, particularly 
as most of the arches are in 
. inner urban areas." 

The board is also aiming to 
exploit the demand for office 
accommodation in the City 
generated by the b$ bang. In 
addition to Broadgate, which 
is under construction, the 
development of other station 
sites in London is either 
underway or planned. 

Since 1980, the Property 
Board has attracted some £460 
million of- private sector 
investment to create offices, 
diops, factories and ware- 
houses on railway land, and in 
some cases over railway tracks 
and stations. During 1985-86^ 
work started oo 18 new 
schemes covering one million 
sq ft and involving private 
sector investme n t of about 
£115 million. 


The schemes include a 265- 
room hotel with additional 1 
station car parking at Eustoa, ! 
a 40,000 sq ft store at Sheffield | 
(Wadsley Bridge), a 75,000 sq i 
ft supermarket and new sta- i 
tion facilities at rhphsm 
Junction and a 45,000 sq ft 
retail development at 
Weymouth. 

The largest single develop- 
ment undertaken by the board 
is the Liverpool Street-Broad 
Street “Broadgate” 
projectTbe first two phases of 
544,000 sq ft will be com- 
pleted this year, while a start 
on the next 750,000 sq ft is 
expected soon. 


Midland finds way to 
expected destination 


Originally the board re- 
corded 17,675 acres of vacant 
and under-utilized land held 
by public bodies in England 
and Wales in the government 
register. By April 1, 11,6361 
acres remained, of winch j 
about 7 6J5 per cent was ac- !

Waterways board tops 
performance target 


Wimpey in £17m sale 


George Wimpey. the 
housebuilder, is selling its 
builders' merchants business 
to Cement-Roadstone, the big 
Irish construction group, for 
just over £17 million. 

The deal will expand Ce- 
raent-Roadstone's merchant 
operations in the UK to 
around £1 10 million a year, 
with more than half of it 
generated in the South. 


Wimpey is selling WW 
Hall, with nine branches, Ed- 
wards and Company 
(Longfield). with a branch in 
Kent, and Monteith Building 
Services, with six branches 
and a board-processing opera- 
tion.in Scotland. 


Last year the Wimpey 
merchanting business earned 
trading profits of £2.1 million

The British Waterways 
Board, the state concern that 
administers and maintains the 
nation's canals and inland 
harbours, earned £603 mil- 
lion in revenue in 1985-86 and 
after costs had a retained 
profit of £218,000. 

Presenting the annual re- 
sults yesterday, Sr Leslie 
Young, the chairman, said tile 
organization had met the 
performance target of break- 
ing even as laid down in the 
Transport Act 1968. Dining 
the year, the board received 
£42.3 million of Government 
grants against nearly £50 mil- 
lion in the previous 15 
months. 

However, a qualification of 
the accounts from Coopers & 
Lybrand, the auditors, makes 
clear that the board has not 
been able to meet all its 
statutory obligations for the 
maintenance and remedial 
work on waterways, reservoirs 
and road bridges because of 
lack of finance. 

At the end of 1985-86, no 
provision had been made for 
the £130 mOlion of repairs 
needed to commercial and 
cruising waterways, the £6.9 
million of safety measures 
needed at reservoirs, or the 
£13.1 million required to re- 
build public road bridges.

Sir Leslie Young: recovery 

in freight division 


board's year was a recovery 
by the height division, which 
recorded a loss of £359,000 
from its operating activities 
compared with a loss of £13 
million in 1984-85. Sir Leslie 
said this was achieved by 
reducing costs and manpower. 

Toll revenue from commer- 
cial traffic contributed £1.04 
million to the board. 

Leisure use of the water- 
ways produced a revenue of 
just over £4 million, while the 
profit earned from joint prop- 
erty ventures with private 
sector companies to develop 
the board’s land totalled £2.6 
million. 


As the midnight deadline 
approached, negotiators from 
50 countries were grappling 
last night with obstacles to 
agreement on a five-year 
extension —with amended 
provisions — to the muhifibre' 
arrangement (MFA). 

The United States, which 
has experienced a 25-30 per 
cent annual increase in textile 
and garment imports recently, 
remained unyielding in its 
insistence that “new” veg- 
etable fibres, particularly ra- 
mie, be covered by the 
amended protocol It was 
opposed by third world textile 
producers and China. 

The European Economic 
Community, which has not 
been subject to the same 
onslaught of textile imports, 
does not believe products 
containing ramie — up to 55 
percent— r epresent a threat to 
its home market. The Ameri- 
cans contend, however, that 
innovative mixes of fibres win 
shortly “go through all 
sectors." 

Dominant third world 
producers are dissatisfied with 
a new MFA danse whereby 
.their exports will be accorded 
differing conditions according 
to produce and origin. 


Midland Bank's interim fig- 
ures were as good as expected. 

They showed that, on most 
fronts, the tank has found its 
way out of the woods, and the 
point was drummed in with a 
dividend increase. But the 
results included a number of 
unexpected features which 
bear closer examination. 

The £195 million prerax 
profits included a large slice 
from bond and foreign ex- 
change dealing which helped 
to boost other operating in- 
come from £563 million to 
£695 million. 

Large dealing profits may 
indicate the way in which 
Midland is already swinging 
further towards investment 
banking, one of its major 
policy objectives. They may, 
however, be a flash in the pan. 
National Westminster, after 
aU, also produced large deal- 
ing profits over the same 
period. 

The bank also revealed 
higher-than-expected bad debt 
provisions: a £28 million in- 
crease to £210 milli on. The 
positive side is that the bank's 
underlying performance was 
somewhat stronger than ex- 
pected, enabling it to meet 
overall profit expectations. 

The 26 per cent increase in 
domestic tanking may not 
have been as sparkling as 
NatWest’s performance but it 
was still solid, with healthy 
signs, such as continued 
strong growth in personal 
customer accounts, giving rea- 
son for optimism. 

Midland has also shown 
considerable success in reduc- 
ing the international loan 
port folioinheri ted from 
Crocker which looks less 
th reatening than a few months 
ago. 

But Midland has, surpris- 
ingly, not followed other 
hanks in pushing the bulk of 
new provisions into the tax 
efficient “specific" category. 
The result is that, although the 
bank's tax charge has dropped 
from 59 percent to 47 per cent 
— producing a big rise in 
earnings per share — it has not 
fallen nearly as for as it might 
have. Provisioning is un- 
doubtedly a delicate art but 
the reasons for Midland's 
policy do not seem altogether 
clear. 

That policy may change 
along with many other things 
over the next 1 8 months as the . 
present senior management 
make way for a new genera-. 


tion, led by Mr Kit McMahon. 

Coinciding with the ob- 
vious improvement in 
Midland’s fortunes, this 
change is certain to boost the 
stock-market's confidence in 
the bank over the long term. 
More immediately, a further 
increase in the dividend at the 


p/e of 6. 

That will still leave Midland 
looking cheap relative to the 
other banks which are them- 
selves undo-valued . 


Lex Service 


A gloomy statement on a 
company’s outlook will go a 
long way towards over- 
shadowing its improved prof- 
its. Interim pretax profit at 
Lex Service, announced yes- 
terday. leapt 87 per cent to 
£14.8 million, causing the 
share price to rise initially by 
8p to 317pu 

Euphoria was quickly 
damped down, however, on 
reading the accompanying 
statement which warned that 
an apparent recovery in the 
electronic components mar- 
ket earlier this . year was not 
sustained and that a recovery 
is now not expected until 
1987. 

Lex Service still depends 
entirely on its automotive 
distribution activities for 62 
percent of turnover and all of 
its profit. Lex is the sole 
importer of Volvo cars and 
parts into Britain, a con- 
cession it has held since 1958. 
New Volvo registrations were 
up 12.1 per cent, compared 
with 23. per cent for aU new 
cars in Britain. 

In contrast, electronics dis- 
tribution lost £0.5 million 
compared with £13 million 
last year. A Lex subsidiary, 
Scfaweber Electronics, is the 
ihird-largest distributor of 
electronic components in the 
US. 

The bulk of the profit rise 
at the pretax level was due 
both to lower administration 
costs and interest charges. 
The proceeds from the dis- 
posal of its parcel-carrying 
and vehicle-hire businesses 
have enabled the group to 
reduce its net debt from 32 
per cent of equity at the end 
of December to 10 per cent 
six months later. - 

Financially, therefore. Lex 
.is very strong. Volvo is.a solid 


cash cow, but it would be 
unrealistic to expect it to 
continue to gain market share 
at the rate achieved in the 
first halt 

Lex’s performance now de- 
pends on a recovery in 
electro-components, «- 
pedal I v in the US, and this is 
not likelv to happen until 
1987. However, lower in- 
terest charges will enable the 
group to make £32 million 
pretax for the full year to 
December 1986. putting the 
shares on a prospective mul- 
tiple of 13 times this year’s 
earnings. 

Only investors with time 
horizons stretching into 1987 1 
and who are willing to bet on 
the electronic components 
recovery will find the shares 
attractive at these levels. 


David S Smith 


David Smith’s leap in pretax 
profits to £6.2 million from 
£1.05 million reflects the 
transformation of the group 
from a small Welsh packag- 
ing company to one of the 
largest paper and board 
manufacturers in the country. 

This year's figures will 
show another dramatic leap 
forward, as the St Regis 
acquisition makes its first 
contribution. 

Most of last year’s profit 
rise was due to acquisitions, 
including 12 months' 
contribution from Western 
Board Mills against five pro 
viously and 1 1 mouths from 
Abbitrm. 

The existing Smith busi- 
nesses also boosted their 
turnover by 12 to 15 percent. 
Demand is rising steadily 

The thrust this year will be 
to utilize existing capacity 
rather than commission new, 
St Regis has spare capacity, 
including one comigater in 
mothballs. Capital spending 
will be about £10.5 million 
against £18 million, but £8 
million is for St Regis compa- 
nies. 

Taxable profits this year 
should reach £18 million, 
putting the company on a 
prospective p/e ratio, assum- 
ing 35 per cent tax, of 1 5. The 
rating is not overly demand- 
ing against the sector. 

Although integrating St 
Regis will be a major task this 
year. Smith is still keeping an 
eye out for acquisitions which 
can fill gaps between its 
businesses. ....

To ensure they emerge from the 
next election as still the governing 
party, the Conservatives will need to 
dust off the old, three-part, winning 
formula: skilled communication of 
the Government's achievements to 
the mass of the electorate; judicious 
“bribing” of the voters through the 
pre-election Budget; and a penetrating 
rubbishing of the Opposition's plat- 
form promises. 

The last should not be too difficult: 
the signs are that the Labour Party 
grandees, like the Bourbons, have 
teamed nothing and forgotten noth- 
ings The Party, led by Shadow 
Chancellor Roy Hattersley, is moving 
towards a tax strategy which threatens 
to make Denis Healey's 1974 attempt 
to make the pips squeak look mild by 
comparison. 

The ^problem is that the tax haul 
allegedly waiting for Labour, if they 
are prepared to squeeze the rich, may 
be much smaller than they think- Mr 
Hattersley regularly comes up with a 
figure of £3.6 billion for the amount 
that the present Government has 
given away in tax to “the rich.” 

He recently defined the recipients of 
this Thatcherite largesse as the richest 
5 per cent of the population, that is, 
those with an income of more than 
£27,000 a year. Yet as recently as 
September he put the figure at 
£20,000. This discrepancy is faintly 
puzzling but the real mystery lies in 
the £3.obillion itself. The Institute for 
Fiscal Studies, in the latest number of 
its journal Fiscal Studies, examined 
the redistributive consequences of 
Mrs Thatcher. The total income tax 
“giveaway” to individuals on £20,000 
or more has been less than £750 
million, after taking account of 
inflation. 

The “giveaway” on capital taxes is 
more difficult to calculate but, on 
yield differences between now and 
1979 looks to be less than £1 billion, 
and probably not much more than 
£500 million. 

Thus, even if Mr Hattersley were to 
reverse tax changes undertaken in the 
past seven years, and, with Yorkshire 
cunning, limi t the impact to the top 5 
per cent of taxpayers, however de- 
fined, he would not get anywhere near 
his £3.6 billion. He might do well to 
rake in overfl billion. 

The painful truth is that Labour's 
tax plans would start to hit weU below 
the richest 5 per cent of the popula- 
tion. One plank in Labour’s platform 
is to remove the higher rate tax relief 
on pensions, mortgages and. other 
. allowable items. This would firing' in 
around £600 million in extra revenue^ 
but would start to affect sole earner - 
families as well as individuals, with an 
income of more than £1 7,200 a year. 

A second proposal is to remove the 
upper earnings limit for employees of 


national insurance contributions, 
which would bring in an extra £610 
million. Here too, the impact would 
be felt well below Mr Hattersley’s top 
5 per cent: it would hit anyone earning 
more than £285 a week, or £14,800 a 
year. 

Mr Hattersley has declared it his 
intention not to return to the very 
high marginal tax rates which pre- 
vailed between 1 974 and 1 979. On the 
basis of the sums he is putting together 
in Opposition, it would be wise not to 
put too much trust in that. 

No but. Minister... 

The Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission report on merging <5 EC 
and Plessey is with the Secretary of 
State, Paul Channon. If the MMC has 
recommended unequivocally that 
GEC should be free to bid again for 
Plessey, then the 'Minister has no 
authority to decree otherwise. Nor 
would there be any reason for delaying 
a public statement, unless Mr. 
Channon feels that a clearance would 
set out such a political explosion that 
he would be wise first to build up fire 
proof cover among his government 
colleagues. 

The best informed guesses about 
the MMCTs recommendations are that 
it is a “Yes, but...” or more likely, a 
“No, but...” Each would require some 
positive thinking by Mr. Channon. 

A “Yes, but” means that there are 
strong arguments in favour of putting 
GEC and Plessey together but they 
weigh less than the Ministry of 
Defence’s passionate belief in the 
necessity of having two major con- 
tractors competing for defence work. 
It would be a poor reflection on the 
intellectual capacity of the Commis- 
sion panel if its members have 
swallowed the MoD’s line, which 
appears to have overlooked the feet 
that GEC and Plessey actually com- 
pete over a relatively small part of the 
military spectrum and to have been 
based on airy projections of the likely 
additional cost of defence procure- 
ment if a putative rival for the work, 
in the shape of Plessey, did not exist 

“No. but” would be more respect- 
able. It means that the MMC has 
accepted the case, including the 
arguments of the MoD, for Plessey’s 
continued independence, with the 
major proviso - that. GECs and 
Plessey’s . telecommunications 
buinsses should be {Hit together as the 
last hope for maintaining a significant 
British presence in this critical 
industry. 

In the real world however, the only 
way of making one strong tele- 
communications business out of GEC 
and Plessey, if that is the received 
wisdom, is via GECs taking over 
Plessey.

The management buy-out is now, more than ever, an increasingly popular 
alternative to corporate employment The advantages, after all, are clear 
enough. To the seller, a convenient, efficient and cost-effective way of 
shedding an unwanted business. To the buyers, the chance to go it alone with 
every prospect of very real reward. 

There; however, the simplicity ends. And, to potential candidates, a word 
of wanting. Expect no favours. 

The present manage ment will be supported by a battery of professional 
. advisors, many of whom, quite possibly, you’ve known and worked with for 
years. If your bid is to be successful, you and your colleagues, will need similar 
expertise of the highest calibre to plan, negotiate and implement your buy-out. 

Come to us. We’re one ofthe world’s largest firms of Chartered 
Accountants and Management Consultants, with 23 offices in the UK. Our 
Corporate Finance Group is.highly experienced in management buy-outs of 
every size (we’ve been successfully involved in over 70 in the past four years). 

We can help with finance, through our specialists in merchant banking 
and venture capital. We can help with taxation, which can otherwise

planning and resources, for the full weight of our ^

Derek Hams reports a different view on dump in hotel bookings Financial 


Occupancy rates, the hotel trade’s • J a "■ • , ■_ 

Did too men I not work, 

a ec points at some London hotels in 



Occupancy rates, the hotel trade’s 
crucial benchmark for profitability, 
dropped between 20 and 30 percent- 
age points at some London hotels in 
the first half of this year, from last 
year's high peaks. 

But with some recovery in demand 
now emerging, even the worst affected 
hotels could end 1986 with annual 
occupancy levels of at least 65 per 
cent 

This was revealed yesterday by Mr 
Jonathan Bodlender, m anag in g direc- 
tor of Horwath & Horwath (UK), a 
leading hotel and leisure consultancy, 
which is part of the Stoy Hayward 
accountancy and advisory group. 

Horwath's latest annual report on 
the hotel industry forecast that North 
Americans would regain confidence in 
Britain as a tourism destination, 
leaving London with a severe shortage 
of hotel rooms by the middle of the 
next decade. 

Where investment, through pur- 
chase and refurbishment, has been at 
the high levels of the last few years in 
the capital, a full-year occupancy rale 
of about 65 per cent is unlikely to be 
enough to achieve profitability. Even 
higher rates could still leave some 
hotels with profits under extreme 
pressure.

By Richard Thomson 

Banking Correspondent 

Banks and securities houses 
are strongly critical of the new 
framework of investment leg- 
islation set out in the Finan- 
cial Services Bill, in particular 
its relevance to_ international, 
institutional business. Few be- 
lieve it will provide a work- 
able framework of regulation 
or ensure regulatory equality 
for all those participating in 
financial markets. 

A survey published by 
Deloitte Haskins & Sells, the 
chartered accountants, reveals 
that a majority of institutions’ 
regard the legislation as being 
designed for “Aunt Agathas” 
and not for professional inves- 
tors. The survey is based on 
interviews with executives of 
59 British and foreign banks 
and securities firms. 

Fewer than 30 per cent of 
those interviewed see the leg- 
islation as providing excellent 
or good protection for pro- 
fessional investors, while 66 
per cent believe there will be 1 
no particular benefit for their 
own organization.

of terrorism, suggested Mr 
Bodlender. The effect of tariff 
increases at hotels, en- 
couraged by the boom of 1 985, 
bad been compounded this 
year by the increased value of 
sterling against the American 
dollar. 

This year's tourist numbers 
may prove to be below those 
of 1985's record but may well 
show an increase over 1984, 
even though that was a good 
year, he said. He foresaw a 
firm upward trend in overseas 
visitots as lower oil prices led 
lo lower inflation, a weaker 
sterling and reduced transport 
costs. 

Mr Bodlender said: “This 
year's decline in the number of 
visitors from North America 
is little more than a temporary 
hiccough.’ 1 


He expected London to still 
free a problem of undersupply 
of rooms by tbe middle of the 
next decade. An earlier 
Horwath study identified a 
shortfall of between 16,000 
and 28,000 hotel rooms by the 
early 1990s and between 
30,000 and 64,000 rooms by 
tbe middle of the decade. The 
capital's existing stock is put 
at 91,000. 

The fundamental issue for 
London was bow lo handle 
this demand. Its role as a key 
gateway city was crucial to the 
development of British tour- 
ism, said Mr Bodlender. 

“Planning constraints, cau- 
tion in the financial commu- 
nity towards hotel 
construction and a lack of 
understanding about the bene- 
fits from tourism are three 


potential growth. There is a 
- — trend to develop budget-price 

hotels. 

V • In Wales, hotel occupancy 
has increased slightly but the

thought the legislation would 
damage their client relation- 
ships by forcing them to! 
charge higher fees to meet the 
cost of complying with the.’ 
regulations. 

There was also doubt about' 
the position of the Securities, 
and Investments Board, the- 
regulatory body on which the, 
system is based. Only 39 per- 
cent of those interviewed were 
confident that the SIB would > 
be able to maintain its polio-.'

term. 

But optimism about the Bill 
also showed through, with 70 
per cent believing that it was

Scotch whisky exports rose 
2 per cent in volume in the 
first half of this year with their 
value up 6 per cent to £483 
million, the Scotch Whisky 
Association said. 

In the 12 months to the end 
of June, exports to 190 world 
markets were worth £1,200 
million. In the British market, 
duty payments in the last 
financial year indicated a 6 per

Success, like adversity, presents 
special challenges. For Heinz in fiscal 
1986. the principal challenge was a 
welcome one: lo improve once more, as 
we have done time and time ogam, a 
long-term record of rising performance. 

Fiscal 1 986 is our 22nd consecutive 
year erf new records for sales, earnings 
and earnings per share. This is a most 
attractive background against which to 
consider the impact of a century-old 
turning point, the foreign operations 
that hove spread ripple-fashion as the 
traceable consequence of a single safe 
made in 19th-century London. 

These foreign operations function 
under a high degree of focal autonomy. 
They grra Heinz a series of solid 
foundations around the world m the 
form of companies perceived not as 
outposts of an empire headquartered 
for a wav, but as independent, potent 
and enduring forces for good in their 
various home markets. 

The results for fiscal 1986 lead us to 
one sure conclusion: carefully 
cultivated, success breeds more and 
more success. 

That this is true can be seen in a 

S ick review of the past decade. During 
rt time, our gross profits, which help 
to fuel our marketing mechanism, 
almost tripled, while our gross profit 
margin in relation to net sales escalated 
by 34%. In the loiter half of the decode, 
our market capitalization more than 
tripled and total return to shareholders 
— the sum of reinvested dividends and 
appreciation in the price of the stock — 
more than quintupled 

At the start of calendar 1986, the 
adjusted price of one shore of Heinz 
stock was just over four times the price 
at the start of calendar 1981. 

A good portion of the aedit for this 
record must be directed to the 
managers of our subsidiary companies, 
who have hewed to the guidelines set 

forth by Worid Headquarter*. They 
hove mode an indispensable 
contribution to the new culture 
embodied in our low-cost-operator 
approach. 

Another part of the credit for our 
success con be traced loo policy of 
substantial investment as we refuse to 
let funds fie idle when they could be put 
to profitable use. 

In moriceting, for instance, we hove 
ait the bonds that might restrain the

Net Earnings up: 13.4%

Hmid, for experience fells us that in this 
"|9™y competitive business, to stand 
*11 is to lose ground. 

While recognfong the glamour that 
attends the introduction of suc cess ful 
new products, we know that we must 
not reloxin defense of our established 
brands. The wisdom of this course was 
proveaonce again when Heinz U.S A.

“Specteo of being "mature", rose fo 
new heights lost year, bringing in more 
revenue man ever before andeopturina 
more than half of the market for the 
first hme in history. 

At the same time, we recorded o 
massive outpouring of new products, 
distinguished by superior taste, 
convenience and nutrition. 

Another sizable portion of our 


hove given us the most efficient 
manufacturing capabilities m our 
history. Here ogam, as with our 
products, we may view the effort in 
terms of two c a tegories: those now on 
line and those that are yet to come. 

In the former category, we hove such 
developments as the construction of 
storage space to handle the growing 
needs of factories in Ohio, California, 
Holy and Zimbabwe. 

In the second of the two categories, 
entirely new factories were completed, 
under way or on the drawing boards in 
California, Chino, South Korea mid 
Brazil. 

Beyond these, we conc e ntrated on 
me outright purchase of existing 
businesses, in whole or in part, in 
activity that has accelerated at Heinz in 
recent yearn. While we do not believe 
mot acquisition is always the proper 
rwite to follow, we do (mow mat it can 
,0 _j m e t u ^y arK ^ economically into 
market sectors and geographical areas 
where our entry might otherwise be 
considerably mare difficult. 

Certainly, the moves of the past 
decode have paid off well. For an 
expenditure of only S370 million, we 
w ere a ble to acquire companies whose 
current earnings contribution, if valued 
at today's market multiples in the 15-18 
range would hove a value of more than 
SI billion. In another mode of 
mMsurement, every one of those 
dollars grew into $2 JO of current 
market value. Our ability to make these 
moves without the use of stock has 
protected shorehddws against dilation 
ot their investment. 

We expect that some day in the nor 

too distant future we will be able to 

report comparable results for the 
investments mode in fiscal 1986. notably

The Government's loin guarantee 
scheme (LGS). which makes it easier for 
small businesses to get loans of up to 
£75,000, Is biog rennd by improver 
meats in trod seed in the last Budget, 
writes Derek Harm. 

Id May &e applications rate jmnped 
by three times, from about 50 a month in 
the filial quarter of but year to last ander , 
150 01 May,toflowed by 107 in Jn«.Tbe 
rate of applfcathms could rise to 400 a 
month, according to David Trippier, 


minister for small businesses at the 
Department of Employment. He is 
optimistic- too that the failure rate of 
businesses helped by the scheme witi laD 
from the present one in three. He said: 
“By the ead of next year I hope fee rate 
will be down to one in five." - 
In the Budget the cost to borrowers was 
reduced by hairing the premium paid on 
the guaranteed portion of loans. The 
premium is now 15 per cent over and 
above the going ratefor bank' loans on the 


70 per cent guaranteed portion of loans 
taken oat This means the net premium 
on a loan overall is L75 per cent 
The banks, pleased that the new LGS 
will ran for three years, thas enabling 
them to lay firm marketing plans, are 
dearly throwing more of their weight 
behind the scheme. Applications are also 
being dealt with in an average of eight 
days, compared with three weeks in 1983. 
Bat Mr Trippier wants to reduce this 
period even tether. •

Profitable 

partners 

By Derelc Harris 
Barsby Prince, a design consultancy 
rooted in the Midlands but with growing 
international- connections, is in its 
thirteenth year. But for. the two men 
behind it, this month has been the lucky 
one. • 

The consultancy’s growth has dictated 
the expansion of studios and offices at 
Leicester, bringing investment on buying 
and refurbishing premises to more than 
£250.000. To ' the opening this month 
came the Chancellor of the Ex c h e quer, 
although be attended primarily in his 
role as the local MP, for Blaby.“This 
young company,** said Nigel Lawson, “is 
clearly going places.” 

The equal partners in the consultancy 
are Michad Barsby, who is 47, and Ray 
Prince, 10 years his junior, who oould 
aim trice pleasure from a glance at the 
books- Turnover in the last foil year was 
just over £2 million, with the business 
showing healthy profits. 

But Mr Barsby remembers that in the 
first year of the business, turnover was 
only £17,000. The pair raised £2,000 as 
start-up capital by cashing in their 
pension rights' earned in the jobs they 
had thrown up 



He commented: “That first year we 
managed to live; but only just.” It was 
the period of the miners* strike and the 
three-day week, so woric was hard to 
come by. 

It was Mr Barsby who had first gone it 
alone. He was joined a year later by Mr 
Prince, who had taken on Mr Barsby’s 
old design job at the East Midlands 
Electricity Board in Nottingham. 

The equal partners have seen their 
business grow steadily after that strug- 
gling start. They now have a marketing 
representative in the eastern United 
Slates with transatlantic commissions, 
mainly involving exhibitions being 
mounted by US companies in the UK 
and Europe, accounting for about 15 per 
cent of turnover. So ter, woric for 
European companies, although increas- 
ing, is not a big part of the business 


Lucky thirteenth year for design 
consultants Michael Barsby* . 
left, and Ray Prince 

Mr Barsby said: “We have always tried 
to avoid specialization so that we could 
provide a service across' the design 
spectrum, although we have now col- 
lected a team of specialists to refine the 
service." 

They emphasize a strong involvement 
with clients and they like the practical 
benefits of their woric to be deariy 
quantifiable by clients. These now 
include, as wefl as a wide span of 
Midlands businesses, many big compa- 
nies — from Sperry and Westinghouse to 
Imperial Chemical Industries and 
Citicorp 

Mr Barsby said: “We nave never relied 
on loans but have just ploughed back 
whatever we can out of profits. Now we 
are having an internal debate on whether 
we should have an office in London. 
Perhaps we could pick up more national 
business by doing that, but having our 
production facilities in Leicester means 
we have lower costs. Salary scales, for 
instance, are lower.” 

The next big step could be at .least five 
years away when it might be logical for 
the partnership to look to a flotation on 
the unlisted securities market Mr Barsby 
said: “That would be with expansion in 
mmd. More than anything, we are keenly 
committed designers.”

■ York City Councfi has put up 
£250,000 to help small businesses in the 
area In a low-cost loans scheme 
launched this week by York Enterprise 
Limited (YEL), a local enterprise 
agency, writes Derek Harris. The idea is 
to give pump-priming aid to young 
businesses unable to raise enough 
money from conventional sources 
such as the clearing banks. 

On offer wiB be loans, which could be 
unsecured, between £500 and £25DOO 
with repayment normally needed 
within five years. The interest rate wM be 
fixed at 13 per cent a year or 3 per 
cent over base rate,. whichever is the 
lower. Businesses wffl normally have 
to show that jobs wfll either be created or, 
in the case or more established 
businesses, sustained by a loan. 


MR FRIDAY 



T do wish people would stop saying 
• that tiie worry is taking years off me 

YEL plans to extend further its 
financial services to include guarantee 
and equity schemes as well as 


service. Help from the service will be 
part of the new loans scheme.

Motoring by Clifford Webb 


Fiat’s challenging new breed 


Tbe new Hat Croma has a 
difficult road ahead. Hat has 
been notably unsuccessful 
with previous attempts to 
penetrate the profitable exec- 
utive car sector. As a result it 
has become one of the least 
known names in Mg cars. 

It was to remedy this weak- 
ness that the tip Italian group 
acquired foment. But n the 
Croma 2000ie Soper which I 
have just been driving is 
typical of a new breed of Hat 
fig cars then the already well- 
served executive sector has 
acquired another worthy con- 
tender to battle it out with the 
new Rover 800, Ford Gra- 
nada, Audi 100, Renault 25, 
BMW 5 series, Saab 9000 and 

VauxhaH Carlton. 

Fiat has wisely confined the 
Croma to the lower end of the 
segment by sticking to a two 
litre engine for all three ver* 
sions imported to Britain. 
Budget changes which come 
into effect bier next year lift 
the tax “break” from 1.8 to 
two litres. As 75 per cent of 
sates in this, sector are business 
as opposed to private pur- 
chases it means that managers 
who were previously restricted 
to 1.8 litres to take advantage 
of the tax break will now be 
able to lift their sights to the 
lower regions of the executive 
market. 

The Croma is not tbe best 
looking car around. There are 
already too many high tailed, 
wedge nosed rivals for it to 
stand out in a car paric. ft is 
also a tittle too chubby for my 
taste: The designers seem to 
have tried to squeeze too 
much into too lime and in 
doing so have sacrificed a few 
inches in length which would 
have made it so much sleeker. 

It is for instance only 14.7ft- 
long compared with the new 
Rover 800’s 15.4ft — and 
those extra inches make a 
world of difference. 

But cosmetics aside, the 
Croma is every inch a driver’s 
car. The familiar two litre, 


twin cam power unit with its 
integrated Webber-Mardti el- 
ectronic injection and ig nition 
equipment is very gutsy, 
responding eageity to enthu- 
siastic use of the accelerator 
and gear lever in typically 
Italian fashion. It doesget a bit 
noisy above 4,SCI0ipm when 
the exhaust develops a rau- 
cous note. Bat that may prove 
to he an attraction for those 
young thr u sters apafrfrtg an 
executive car with a sporting 
flavour.

Offload coneum p flens Urban 
30.7mpg; 56mph,

hrauranco: group 6/7 


One of the Croma’s pluses is 
its ability to cruise at high 
speeds on the motorway with- 
out raising its voice to more 
than a whisper. At 70mph it is 
turning over at only 3,000rpm 
in overdrive fifth gear. Unlike 
some rivals however it is not 
so highly geared that you have 
to “mop a cog” every time you 
encounter a moderately steep 
hill 

But it is on fast, winding; 
country roads that the Croma 
really cones into its own and 
you can put its well balanced 
chassis to excellent use. 
Adjustment to seating and 
steering wheel should permit 
most drivers to mid a 
comfortable position. The 
heating and ventilation sys- 
tem, feeding no less than 13 
vents, including two below the. 
front seat, takes some time to 
sort out to obtain the best 
results. L settled for tbe auto- 
matic bacon but then I was 
driving in mild weather 
conditions. 


Being different costs money 
in the car world. Once you 
step outside the cost effective 
economics of mass production 
the sky’s the limit P u rchase 
price soars in adverse ratio to 
production. On that basis the 
£50,000 asking price far road- 
going versions of Ford's new 
rally “ supcicai" , tbe four-, 
wheel drive RS200 powered 
by a turbo-charged Cosworth 
engine, is not as steep as it 
seems. 

Ford aslced Reliant Tam- 
worth to build the 200 
RS2O0’s necessary for it to be 
recognized as a Group B rally 
car. It gave Aston Martin 
Tidcford, the Milton Keynes 
engineering and design spe- 
cialists, the job of testing and 
developing the car and seeing 
it safely through vital type 
approval tests. 

But Ford also made another 
decision which was later to 


It fold Tickford to develop 
another version as a luxury, 
high performance two-seater 
sports car. 

- How for tnnate that A-mo nn 

was only became apparent 
more recently when the grow- 
ing number of rally fatalities 
involving both drivers and 
spectators forced the govern- 
ing body of motor sport to 
curb the 160mph “racing car 
specials” in Group B. Specif- 
ication limitations which 
come into force next season 
effectively killed off the new 
RS200 rally car in its first 
season. 

This is mie- time the much 
abused description “limited 
edition” means just that. Ford 
tefl me “AD 200 have been 
bnDt and there will be no 
more. A few have gone to raDy 
drivers who wffl use them in 
medal permitted events, a few 
for use as trade racers, but the 
majority are available as a 
very exclusive sportiTcar .”

Ford JRS 200: A gemrine limited edition 


• Life in the already fiercely 
fought UK repBacemem tyre 
market fa about to get even 
tougher. National Tyre Ser- 
vice, the bi gg es t indr prudent 
tyre specialist, has jast in- 
troduced a new range of Ko- 
rean tyres. Aloud 5 mfllfan 
cheap tyres are already ha- 
perted aunally from Eastern 
Europe and the Far East and 
account for a third of all 
replacement tyres. 

National says its new Ko- 
rean tyres come in sizes sidfe- 
aUe for most cars, mmri» the 
performance of the 
brands, cany aa on-the-spot 
replacement guarantee and are 
very low priced. Mr Tony 
Ward, marketing manager, 
said: “No other tyre specialist 
b willing to put fas own we 
oa fas tyres, particularly such 
an extensive range as this. 

• The sHck publicity ma- 
chines of the oil companies are 
working themselves into a 


lather aboat the dangers ho- 
rns motorists using the no- 
leaded petrol now beginning to 
appear on British forecourts. 
“Unsuitable fnghwi could be 
severely damaged” b the main 
theme. Texaco has even In- 
troduced a free phone service 
(dial 100 asi ask for ; 
Freephone 2793) if you want to 
know whether or not yoer car 
is suitable for mlraded petroL 

The need for unleaded 
pumps te he instantly identi- 
fiable is underlined by the 
introduction of British Stan- 
dard 7070 which specifies the 
minimu m $fae of “unleaded” 
pump signs and re commends 
tint they have n backgromd 
colour of green — very appro- 
priate for the anti-lead env- 
ironment lobby, but more 
importantly to make them 
instantly identifiable. 

Texaco mdortimatety is 
sticking to Wadi — the colour 
it already uses oa imIgBib*! 
pumps in Emope.

premises at Pennington Street,

done at Warning. 

. The third plaintiff owned the 
-premises at Wapping. All. the 
other corporate plaintiffs were 
either directly or indirectly

tiff 

Since January 1986 the fourth 
plaintiff News . International

and distributed newspapers

second plaintiffs. The fifth 
plaintiff News International 
Supply Company Ltd supplied 
newsprint, ink and other print- 
ing supplies to the first and ■ 
Second plaint i ffs 
The sixth plaintiff London 
Post (Printers) Ltd employed 
printing and other wodeers at 
wapping and supplied that la- 
bour to the first two plaintiffs. 

The seventh plaintiff; Pamela 
Hamiiton-Dick, was deputy 
group classified advertisement 
managerfor The Times who had 
been working since January $86 
at Wapping. 

TNT Roarfirejght (UK) Ltd 
were road haulage contractors 
who undertook the transport of 
newspapers published by the 
first two plaintiffs to newsagents 
throughout the country. They 
operated from a number of 
depots »nri had wimte regular . 
collections by lorry and van 
from Wapping since production 
•tnrt fd there 

.The first defendant, the Soci- 
ety of Graphical and Allied 
Trades TC (Sogat) was one of 
the principal trade unions in the 
printing industry and its 
membership included the gen- 
eral body of print and clerical 
workers; mo6t of those em- 
ployed in the wholesale 
distrubuthm of newspapers were 
members of Sogat All the 
pemonal defendants were mem- 
bers of Sogat 

The second defendant , the 
National Graphical Association 
1982, (NGA) was another of the 
principal trade unions in the 
industry. 

-- The third defendant, William 
freeman, was a member .and 
comrmttec member of the Lon- 
don machine branch of Sogat 
and in January until some time 
in May he was appointed na- 
tional picketing coordinator for 
the union, and could now 
pr oper l y be described at the 
unc^ficralpkketmgcoradinator. 

The fourth defendant Mi- 
chad Hides, was a committee 
member of the London central 
branch of Sogat and imperial 
father of the chapel at John 
Menzies who were wholesale 
distributors of newspapers. 

The fifth defendant Michael 
Britton, was a trade union 
official member of the national 
executive committee of Sogat 
and assistant branch secretary of 
the London branch of revisers, 
ink and roBermakers and auxil- 
iaries. He was also the chief 
marshal or steward of picketing 
in connection with the dispute. 

The sixth defendant Edwin 
Chard, was sued in a repre- 
sentative capacity as represent- 
ing the members and committee 
of toe London central branch of 
Sogat 


The seventh defendant 
Charles Chenill, was sued as 
representing the committee and 
members of -the London ma- 
chine branch of Sogat 
The eighth defendant Chris- 
topher Robbins, was sued both 
in his own b ehal f and as 
representing the committee and 
members of the London branch 
of clerical, administrative and 
executive personnel of Swat 
He was the secretary and run- 
time salaried employee of the 
clerical branch, and was also 
appointed org ani zer and co- 
ordinator of picketing and 
demonstrations 'throngn the 
London central district of Sogat 
At a meeting on January 23, 
1986 Mr Rupert Murdoch on 

behalf of the plain tiffs was 
recorded as saying that the 
industry had worked for many 

yean with three times as many 
people as were necessary to do 
the work at wages between twice 
and five rim« the national 
average. 

It could readily be understood 
that the plaintiffs were an x iou s 
to put an end to such an 

astonishing practice. 

The plaintiffs were particu- 
larly vulnerable because the 

members of Swat were -able to 
control tbe distribution of 
wholesalers. 

Tbe site at Wanting was 
purchased in 1 978. Negotiations 
opened in 1983 with a view to 
reaching an agreement with the 
unions involved so as to pro- 
duce The Sun and News qf the 
World at Wapping. 

The talks broke down in mid 

1984. Tbe Wanting plant, was 
unable to be used and was 
becoming a serious fmanrial 
liability. 

Earty in 1985 the third plain- 
tiffs conceived tbe idea of 
producing a newspaper at 
Wapping, to be known as tbe 
London PosL 

At about that time the pUin- 
trffk MUMTft d into i m o Hi liwn* 
with TNT with a view to the 
latter providing a distribution 
service by road of the existing 
titles, winch by then included 
The Times and The Sunday 
Times. 

Tbe plaintiffs and the unions 
hwiin BMwtMtiftn* in Septem- 
ber 1985 with a view to tire 
. employment of union members 
at Wapping on tbe London Tost 
The negotiations little 
or no prog re s s. Details pro- 
posals were put forward by tbe 
employers on November 1, 

1985. There were important 
provisions in that the agreement 
was to be legally binding, that 
the unions should accept the 
new technology and flexible 
working arrangements without 
rigid demarcation fines and no 
union closed shop. Tbe agree- 
ment was to he for five years and 
there was to be a no strike 
clause. 

Tbe unions were not prepared 
to accept those conditions and 
talks broke down on December 
19, 1985. 

In a press release on Decem- 
ber 29, 1985 tbe third plaintiff 
made it dear tint the Wapping 
plant would be brought into 
readiness for the London Post 
and for other group require- 
ments, whether or not agree- 
ment was reached with the 
anions. - ~ 

In mid Jammy 1986 tbe first 
and second defendants balloted 
their members with a view to 
taking industrial action, includ- 
ing strike action. There were 
substantial majorities in favour 
of such action. 

At 7 JO ran on January 24 
members ofScgor and the NGA. 
together with those of the 
AUEW employed by the first 
and second plaintiffs went on 
strike: Wh ere upon they were 
served with dismissal notices. A 
total of about 5,500 union 
workers lost their jobs. 

Thereafter production of all 
four papers was successfully 
switched to Wapping. Not- 
withstanding that it was cfeariy 
unlawful Sogat sought to halt 
the distribution ofthe papers by 
instructing aO their members 
not to handle the plaintiffs’ 
papers. 

But the arrangements made 
by tbe p l ai n t i ff s with TNT 
largely bypassed the normal 
system. Nevertheless the plain- 
tiff had to seek and pbtain 
injunctive relief to restrain the 
first defendant from inducing 


their members to break con- 
tracts of employment with the 
wholesale distributors. 

Tbe first defendant did not 
obey the injunction and on 
February 10 they were fined 
£25,000 for breach and their 
assets sequestrated. 

On May 8, 'ironically only a 
few days" after the worst violence 
seen on the picket line at 
Wapping, Sogat purged then- 
contempt of court and the 
sequestration order was re- 
scinded. 

In February 1986 talks began 
with the unions with a view to 
settlement of the claims of tbe 
dismissed employees. 

In effect each dismissed 
worker was offered about £620 

for each year of employment, 

with a minimum of £2,000. In 
addition the plaintiffs offered to 
transfer the premises and plant 
at Gray’s Inn Road to tbe 
unions or a body set up fra- the 
purpose of running a paper. 

Following rejection of the 

offer die plaintiffs iwwi the 
writ in these proceedings on 
June 13. 

The conduct complained of 
consisted of allegedly unlawful 
and tortious acts 

The first to sixth plain tiffs 
sought, inter alio, an order that 
the defendants their servants or 
agents, be res trai ned from incit- 
ing, inducing, procuring, financ- 
ing and/or in other ways 
facilitating at or near the 
plaintiffs' premises at Wapping, 
demonstrations, marches, 
and/ or picketing which in- 
volved tbe commission of any 
unlawful act or acts and, in 
particular, nuisance, obstruc- 
tion of the highway, interference 
with the trade, business or 
commerdai contracts of tbe said 
plaintiffs and/or intimidation 
save and except such picketing 
as was rendered lawful by 
section 15 of the Trade Union 
and Labour Relations Act 1974, 
as am—vtwt and not exceeding 
six pickets at the entrance to the 
premises. 

They sought similar relief In 
respect of their own premises at 
Gray’s Inn Road anil Bouverie 
Street and also in relation to 
various depots of TNT. 

They also sought an order 
restraining the defendants from 
interference with the commer- 
cial contracts or trade ra busi- 
ness by delaying or interfering 
with the dispatch of newspapers 
published by the first and 
ypfrv nH plaintiffs. nnA distrib- 
uted by the fourth plaintiff 

Tbe plaintiffs contended that 
tbe conduct complained of in- 
volved commission of four 
separate torts: nuisance, 
intimidation, harassment and 
interference with the perfor- 
mance of their commercial con- 
tracts, and that tbe defendants 
were iiahie in respect of some or 
all of those torts. 

The defendants submitted 
that the torts alleged were not 
made out, and that even if they 
were, the defendants were not 
responsible for them and could 
not.be liable: They also submit- 
ted that tbe plaintiffs ^ not 
made out a case on the balance 
of convenience and additionally 
as against the first to sixth 
plaintiffs, they alleged that they 
did not come to court with clean 
hands and that the court should 
refuse equitable relief for that 
reason if aH else Baled. 

As regarded public nrmance, 
if there was an unreasonable 
obstruction of the highway 
resulting from the events at 
Wapping and the seventh plain- 
tiff could establish particular 
damage, she could sue those 
responsible for tbe nuisance: 
Equally the first to sixth plain- 
tifis could sue if they proved 
particular 

The defendants contended 
that if there was any obstruction 
it did not affect the public at 
large bat only a small number of 
people; namely tbe plaintiffs’ 
employees and TNT’s drivers. 

His Lordship rejected that 
argument saying that it was 
doubtful if it coaid ever apply to 
obstruction of the highway 
where ft might be presumed that 
those who might wish to pass 
were obstructed. 

In any event, his Lordship 
was satisfied that it did affect the 
public at large, and, in any 
event, the plaintiffs' employees 
and TNTs drivers were a 
sufficient class within Lord 


Justice Romcris proposition in 
Attorney General v PYA Quar- 
riers Lid ([1957J 2 QB 169). 

- With respect to private nui- 
sance, it was submitted that the 
third plaintiffs, as owners of the 
land, were entitled to sue at 
Wapping, as were the first and 
second plaintiffs at Bouverie 
Street and Gray's Inn Road 
respectively if the nuisance was 
made out. 

His Lordship had no doubt 
that the conduct ofthe pickets 
and the daily demonstrators as 
described in the evidence 
amounted to an unreasonable 
obstruction of the highway. 

Moreover, it seemed that 
unlike (he working miners in 
Thomas v NUM (South Wales) 
([1986] Ch 20), who were unable 
to establish special damage be- 
cause they were driven into the 
pit ra a bos provided by their 
employer, and there was no 
other evidence of damage, both 
tbe seventh plaintiff and others 
of the plaintiffs could establish 
damage peculiar to them. 

The third plaintiffs cause of 
action hi private nuisance was 
also established, it not being 
necessary to establish peculiar 
damage in that case. 

So far as the twice weekly 
marches, rallies and demonstra- 
tions were concerned, when they 
were peaceful and orderly no 
nuisance was created. But it was 
quite dear that on those occa- 
sions when tbe marches or 
demonstrations got out of con- 
trol attacked the police, tbe 
employees of tbe plaintifis and 
. TNT and obstructed the high- 
way by masses of people that 
that was not a reasonable use of 
the highway and amounted to a 
nuisance. 

So far as special damage was 
concerned His Lordship 
doubted whether the seventh 
plaintiff could establish any 
since she did not normally work 
- on a Saturday when the worst 
violence and disorder occurred. 

But the corporate plaintiffs or 
some of them could establish 
rtanwy Tbe bussing arrange- 
ments were in part due to that 
and so was the employment of 
extra security staff at very 
considerable aMiinnal ex- 
pense. 

Tbe conduct of the pickets 
and demonstrators on many 
occasions at Bouverie Street and 
Gray's Inn Road, amounted to 
an obstruction and the abusive 
and threatening behaviour 
could not be said to be a 
reasonable use of the highway. 
But Mr Grabiner accepted that 
the plaintiffs had no real ev- 
idence of damage caused by 
those taking part in those 
events. 

Turning to tbe question of 
intimidation, the defendants 
submitted, rightly in his 
Lordship's view, that abuse, 
swearing or shoving did not 
amount to a threat of violence. 

They further submitted that 
the threat had to be express or 
implied that if the person threat- 
ened did not do what was 
required, he would be subjected 
to violence and that such threats 
as had been matte did not 
amount to that 

His Lordship disagreed, say- 
ing that the obvious intention of 
the threats was to dissuade 
people from continuing to work 
and in enter for an injunction to 
be granted tbe threat ra threats 
must be serious and taken 
seriously by those who received 
them, and that was where the 
evidence of what had happened 
away from the plaintiffs' 
premises was materi al. 

Where there was such an 
abundance of evidence of the 
employees being followed, mo- 
lested, assaulted and subjected 
to criminal damage to their cars 
and houses, to say nothing of the 
treatment meted out to TNT 
driven, it was idle to suggest 
that the threats were not senous 
or to be taken seriously. 

It followed that his Lordship 
<fid not accept the defendants' 
submission that injunctive relief 
could only be granted to tbe 
employee in the form of an 
injunction to restrain assault. It 
was both the threats and any 
assault that should be re- 
strained. 

So for as the seventh plaintiff 
was concerned, in the circum- 


stances of the case, tbe actions | 
were coercive threats 
to persuade her to cease ’ 
for the plaintifis 

As to the ton of harassment, 
the defendants criticized the I 
decision of Mr Justice Scott in | 
Thomas v NUM (South Wales), 
submitting that he should sot | 
have invented a new tort and 
that it was not sufficient to 
found liability that there had! 
been an unreasonable interfer - 1 
ence with the rights of others, 
even though when a balance was 
strode between conflicting rights 
and interests, the scale came 
down in favour of the plaintiff; 
unless those rights were re o 
Ofnized by the law and feD 
within some accepted head of I 
tort. 

His Lordship said that he was 
bound to say that there was 
fence in those criticisms es- 
pecially where it did not appear 
that damage was a necessary 
ingredient of that ton. 

Since the tort of nuisance was 
established however, and the 
tort of intimidation was threat- 
ened, ft was unnecessary to 
express a final view on the 
question of harassment. 

The plaintifis contended that 
there was interference with the [ 
primary obligations in contract. 

His Lordship was not satisfied 
♦hat tbe p laintiff*; had dis- 1 
charged the burden which rested 
upon them of establishing 
actionable interference with ei- 
ther the contract with the fourth 
plaintiff, or of the contract 
between the fourth plaintiff and 
the wholesale distributor on a 
day-to-day bans that tbe fourth 
plaintiff would distribute as 
quickly as possible. 

It was doubtful that that was a 
primary obligation of tbe con- 
tract and there was no evidence 
before tbe court of those con- 
tracts and it was incumbent 
upon tbe plaintiffs to adduce 
evidence of the existence and 
terms of such contracts. 

In dealing with statutory 
protection for the defendants, 
Mr Grabiner said that three 
propositions were established 
on the evidence. That those who 
attended at ra near Wapping 
were not at or near their place of 
work. 

His Lordship agreed with 
that. It seemed that “place” 
referred to a geographical loca- 
tion and without special words 
in section IS a place where a man 
had never worked could not 
become one where be did. 

As regards vicarious liability, 
the defendants were not liable 
simply because they organized a 
march ra during the 

course of which tortious acts 
were committed by third par- 
ties even though such acts could 
be foreseen. 

’ ■ His Lordship did not accept 
the defendants' submission tint 
they did not have the necessary 
dements of oontroL It seemed 
that the defendant unions could 
exercise substantial control over | 
their members »nrf m the ul- 
timate event that they could not 
control them they might have to 
desist from organizing tbe activ- 
ity in question. 

ffislradship added that there I 
was no evidence that use of | 
- di sc iplin ary powers had been 
threatened against those who 
stepped out of line. 

As regards the representative ; 
actions brought against the 
sixth, seventh and eighth defen- 
dants, His Lordship accepted 
five out of the six submissions of 
those defendants, although 
some went to tbe exercise of his 
discretion rather than to 
jtnsdiciion. In this case it 
seemed plain that members of 
the same branch might well 
have divergent defences. For 
those and other reasons, the 
re pres e n tative actions against 
tbe sixth, seventh and eighth 
defendants bad to be dismissed. 

In considering whether 
injunctive relief should be 
granted his Lordship said that 
tbe plaintiffs had also made out 
their case against the third, fifth 
and eighth defendants.

- On June 26, 1985, the district 
’ auditor had sent to the appellant 

councillors a notice of an 
pctraopdinaiy audit to consider 
' whether he should certify a sum 
£106.103 under section W> 
bs due from the councillors

‘ Accompanying notes alleged

rate without iawftil justification 
the coundlfors had acted in 
breach of statutory duty and 


were guOty of wilful miscon- 
duct. 

Representations made by the 
councillors in response to tbe 
notice claimed that they had 
throughout acted in good faith 
and after taking advice from 
their officers and that they had 
never at any time sought to 
avoid their dirty to make a rate 
or introduce unnecessary delays 
in its discharge. But no request 

was made to the district auditor 
for him to hear any of the 
councillors. 

Mr Louis Blom-Cboper, QC 
Ms Beverley Ung and Ms 
Heather Williams for the coun- 
rillors; Mr Anthony Hidden, 
QC and Mr Mark Lowe fin- the 
district auditor, Mr Charles 
Gross fra Liverpool City 
CaundL 

LORD JUSTICE LAWTON 
said that the appeal raised three 
i smy (1) Did the district 
auditor act fairly in issuing the 
certificate? (2) If be (fid not. did 
the councillors’ appeal to the 

Divisional Court cure any un- 
fairness? (3) If any unfairness 
was cured, did the facts prove 
that the craincfllras, and each of 
them, had been guilty of wilful 
misconduct? 

The history ofthe office and 
practices of district ■ auditors 
established that certainly from 
about 1909 at least until 1982 ft 
was the normal, perhaps invari- 
able. practice for district audi- 
tors to offer oral hearings before 
surcharging. 

The Local Government Fi- 
nance Act 1982 repealed earlier 
provisions dealing with tbe 
powers of district auditors and, 
as in earlier Acts, made no 
statutory provision for anyone 
suspected of witful misconduct 
to be offered an oral hearing. 

When exercising his powers 
under section 20 ofthe 1982 Act 
the district auditor had a 
constitutional duty to act fairly. 
It could be inferred from the 
legislative history that Par- 


liament had- left it to the 
discretion of district auditors 
what procedure to adopt when 
exercising their powers to sur- 
charge. 

On the facts, the district 
auditor should not be criticized 
for the way be started his 
inquiry. If he had offered oral 
hearings at the outset it might 
have ntwi an inordinate time. 

By inviting written 
representations he might have 
been able to discover quickly 
whether any of the councillors 
had a satisfactory answer or 
none at alL Also, ft could be 
inferred that tbe councillors 
themselves were content with 
tiie procedure adopted. 

It was submitted that, even if 
it was permissible to start by 
inviting written re p re se n t a tions, 
when tbe district auditor re- 
ceived them and appreciated the 
councillors' explanations, he 
should have given them an 
opportunity of an oral bearing 
or of having their cases pro* 
sen ted by a lawyer. 

It was said on behalf of the 
district auditor that what the 
councillors were saying was 
wholly inconsistent with the 
council's own minutes and 
documents. 

The courts were chary, how- 
ever, about disbelieving people 
and attributing bad faith to 
them without an oral hea rin g. 
Had tbe councillors been given 
an opportunity of commenting 
on the adverse opinion of their 
conduct which the district audi- 
tor bad formed, they, or some of 
them, might have been able to 

persuade him of their good faith 

and credibility. 

On the facts they might have 
had difficulty in doing sol but it 
was unfair not to have given 
them that chance. 

The stinting point in any 
inquiry into whether tbe appeal 
to the Divisional Conn was 
capable of curing that unfairness 
was to construe the statutory 
provisions conferring the 


originating and appellate juris- 
dictions. 

In his Lordship's judgment, 
the statutory framework of sec- 
tion 20 revealed an intention on 
tbe part of Parliament that all 
complaints, whatever their na- 
ture, against the derision of a 
district auditor should be 
brought before the court so that 
at the end of tbe appellate 
process justice could be done. 

It would not have beeu right, 
as was submitted for tbe district 
auditor before the Divisional 
Court, for the councillors, be- 
cause of the alleged unfairness, 
10 have applied for judicial 
review instead of appealing. 

In his Lordship's judgment, 
the Divisional Court was ca- 
pable of curing such unfairness 
as there was in the way the 
district auditor exercised his 
powers. 

The Divisional Court gave 
the councillors every opportu- 
nity of leading any evidence 
they wished and, through 
e x perienced counsel, of making 
all relevant submissions. The 
proceedings before that court 
were truly a rehearing and not, 
as suggested, a critical examina- 
tion of a reasoned decision. 

Each of the councillors bad a 
fair and adequate oppo r t uni ty of 

dealing with any findings god 
comments which were critical of 
ra adverse to them in tbe district 
auditor’s reasons. Such unfair- 
ness as there was in the way he 
bad performed his duties was 
cured by the appeal. 

When a number of persons 
were charged with having com- 
bined to commit an offence, tbe 
case of each had to be separately 
considered. That principle ap- 
plied in the pre s en t case: 

However, those appellant 
councillors who were not lead- 
ers had by their votes supported 
and encouraged the leaders to 
pursue the course of conduct 
under scrutiny. Farther, they 
had expressly adopted what the 
leader of the council had said in 


his and tbeir defence: There was 
no valid reason feu- distinguish- 
ing between any of them. 

Wilful misconduct was delib- 
erately doing something which 
was wrong knowing it to be 
wrong or with reckless indif- 
ference as to whether ft was 
wrong or not 

The evidence established that 
the coundUors tried to do what 
they had pledged themselves to 
do; but that cost money which 
could only be got from rate- 
payers or central government. 

By April 16, 1985, no rational 
member of the majority party 
on the council could have 
believed that there was any hope 
of persuading central govern- 
ment to make further grams out 
of central funds. 

Inactivity in the rate-making 
process continued until the dis* 
trict auditor made it -dear to 
council members that if they did 
not make a rate soon they were 
likely to be surcharged When a 
rate was made on June 14 all the 
appellant councillors must have 
appreciated that it was an 
unlawful one. 

Pursuit of their political 
objectives was not a valid 
excuse fra not performing their 
statutory duty under tbe Gen- 


eral Rate Art 1967. In his 
Lordship's judgment, there was 
ample evidence on which the 
Divisional Court could find 
wilful misconduct. 

LORD JUSTICE DILLON, 
concurring, said that, though 
inclined to the view that the 
district auditor ought, after 
considering the councillors’ 
representations, to have offered 
them an oral hearing, his Lord- 
ship found h unnecessary to 
reach a final conclusion. 

LORD JUSTICE WOOLF, 
concurring, said that in cases 
such as the present tbe question 
was whether, taking into ac- 
count the complainant's rights 

ofappeaL and if exercised what 

happened on appeal, the com- 
plainant, viewing the combined 
proceedings as a whole, had bad 
a fair bearing. 

While ft might have been 
preferable to oner an oral hear- 
ing at tbe earlier stage, justice 
did not require such an offer. 
When the proceedings were 
considered as a whole the 
allegation of unfairness was not 
made out

Peak condition: John Blair-Fish climbing high above Davos 

Marathons take 
to the mountains 
for new challenge 


From Michael Coleman, Davos 


As well as mesh and cuckoo 
docks, tbe Swiss have now 
invented the mountain marathon 
nee — up and back. The first of 
these hmg-rakiag epics, the 
Davos Alpine Marathon which 
entailed scaling (and descend- 
ing) tbe 8B56ft Sertig Pass on 
the fringes of the Engadine, was 
■ged here with no less than 
0 runners completing the 4]J 
mite coarse, of which 38 were 


To the amazement of the 
sceptics who had labelled the 
whole thing absurd and fool- 
hardy, nobody died and none 
looked worse off than after n Mg 
city marathon. Indeed, the win- 
ner of the women's race, So- 
gnnw Bitser from Hechingen, 
West Germany/a perfect exam- 
ple of effortless excellence if 
ever there was one, strolled 
about so nonchalantly after- 
wards that one doubted if she 
had taken part. The 20 year-old 
slip of a girl blitzed r ound in 
under seven hoars. 

At the other end of the age 
scale. Vital Cajoz, celebrating 
his 73rd birthday on the day, 
survived so well that be skipped 
nimbly np onto the stage at the 
aprfs-race banquet witbont trace 
of fatigue. A had certainly been a 
day for the Alpinists, for whom 
the motion forward oeght also to 
be upward and, more im- 
portantly. into n natural 
envi ro n m e nt . 

For the *flat-earthers’ such as 
Janis Klecker, currently 
America's fastest woman (2hr 
31min), and her husband Barney 
(2hr 1 brain), it proved a hum- 
bling experience. For John An- 
drew Blair-Fish, a computer 
specialist from Edlnbnrgh 
University tboogh bran in soath- 
era England, it was tbe day he 
in for Britain. 

Whether he liked it or not. 
and Bfaur-Fish seems the last 
person to seek publicity with his 
dislike of the mass-marathons 
and die accompanying media 
hype amounting almost to an 
aversion, he was weari ng a 
British vest that day, even 
though it read Caraethy Hill 
Harriers. 

After the pack had streamed 
out of Davos (5,116ft) on the 
op enin g 17-mile ‘sprint’ down to 
FQisnr (3,930ft), Blair-Fish 
foand himself back In the mid- 
50s as the competitors prepared 
for the hard staff — 13 miles of 


sheer climbing. The Hat- 
ea r t h e rs ’ began to feel they were 
rmmiag on tbe spoC tbe Blair- 
Fishes were getting nearer to 
seventh heaven. A pp landing 
villagers were now giving way to 
the beloved solitude of treeless 
slopes, narrow rocky paths and, 
eventually, just rocks. The gla- 
cier below Piz Kescfa was 

glinting. 

We of the press were, by now, 
bong shnttled by mountain res- 
ale helicopters from peak to 
peak for a dose-up view. Up 
front, the long, lean Johannes 
Knupfer, a teacher from 
Vetsam, had eased a way from 
tbe favoured Robert Scfafapfer of 
Arosa and was picking his way 
done to tbe beckoning summit 
as skOfhUy as a man can with a 
marathon already in his legs. 

Behind, the previously am- 
bitious Klecker was being 
dropped mercilessly by die likes 
of Hfider. Camenzmd. Vofken. 
Spuler, Blersch and Schnyder 
whose very names spelt Alps. 
Blair-Fish, too, was bnsy getting 
away from the madding crowd, 
ascending like a ratdietwbeei 
train. In the two-and-a-half 
hours to tbe summi t, he passed 
more than 40, going over elev- 
enth on the heels of Klecker. 

Going down was perhaps 
worse than going ap, aching 
thighs having to be employed as 
brakes. A winding, uneven, for- 
est path just above Davos de- 
manded concentration when feet 
jnst wanted to be let fan. 
Knupfer strode in triumphant, 
docking 5hr 23nrin S4sec com- 
pared with Bbur-Flsh*s 5hr 
56min 15sec for tenth place and 
Miss Bitsers 6hr 54min 30sec. 
These was generous 
money; for Knupfer 1,500 ! 
francs phs 400 more for various 
village ’sprint' prizes a la Tour 
de France; for Hair-Fish, a 
tenth Of that- 

A total trimnph for the Swiss 
all rtxmd and perhaps a hint of 
tbe direction n which the big 
marathons ought to be going. 
Everyone was a winner, and had 
been treated as soch. In compar- 
ing die care be had received 
daring the race, Britain's repre- 
sentative could not but recall 
that time he did the Wansdale 
race and the refreshments bud 
oat at tbe top had a notice — ‘For 
Kendal and Keswick runners 
only'. “I was a bit annoyed” he 
confessed.

HOCKEY 

No cannonball 
fire from 
England team 

Tbe United States retained 
their 100 per cent record against 
England when they beat them 3- 
I at Leicester yesterday follow- 
ing a 2-1 success at the same 
venue on Tuesday evening 
(Joyce Whitehead writes). 

In both matches England 
scored first. Mary Cheetharn 
(Leicestershire) ended a classic 
move on Tuesday and Vickey 
Dixon (Cambridgshire) scored 
from a penalty comer yesterday, 
which was a nice change, but 
after that they appeared to have 
no comeback against their fast 
and lively opponents. They were 
constantly playing a spoiling 
game and it was the US who 
held the reins. 

England had other penalty 
comers but frittered them away. 
Their shots were feeble; this day 
and age requires cannon bail 
shots from tbe edge ofthe circle. 
Karen Brown (Surrey) showed 
considerable skill on a few 
occasions but the US saw to it 
that she was not in a position to 
use it to score. 

Megan Donnelly equalized 
for the US and then increased 
her tally ax penalty comers to 
two in the second half and ft was 
Beth Beglin. their captain, who 
put the finishing touch to a field 
goal to complete tbe score. 


R. A. Cullen Ltd v Nottingham 
Health Authority 

Notwithstanding paragraph 
15(1) of Schedule 5 to tbe 
National Health Service Act 
1977. which had a purely pro- 
cedural effect, a health authority 
entering Into a contract with a 
company for work to be carried 
out and for materials to be 
supplied did so as an agent of 
the Crown. 

Accordingly, money due to 
the company from the health 
authority could be set off as a 
mutual debt against arrears of 


National Insurance contribu- 
tions due from the company to 
the Department of Health and [ 
Social Security under section 31 1 
of the Bankruptcy Act 19!4 on 
the voluntary liquidation of the 
company. 

The Court of Appeal (Lord 
Justice Slade, Lord Justice | 
Nkrbolis and Sir Denys Buckley) 
so stated cm July 30. 1986

plaintiffs, from a decision of 
Judge Heakl sitting as a deputy 
High Court Judge at Notary 
ham on September 24. 1985. 


A bold sporting future 


Wakefield's bold aim to estab- 
lish what w01 be a virtual sports 
city on its outskirts has come a 
step nearer fruition (Michael 
Coleman writes). Local coun-

aspects of the siting and control 
of facilities, give the nabitioas

THE TIMES FRIDAY AUGUST 1 1986 


RACING: HERN’S STAYER GOES FOR CUP GLORY AFTER EASY VICTORY 


Enbarr has the pace to 
to give Cecil his first 
victory in Extel Stakes 


Longboat 
online i 
for atop 
treble 






By Mandarin 

Enbarr can give Henry Cecil 
a first-ever triumph in the 
Extel Stakes, the £25,000 fea- 
ture at Goodwood this after- 
noon. Originally, Cecil, six 
times the champion trainer, 
had planned to aim Star 
Cutter, Tuesday’s decisive 
winner 3 t this highly compet- 
itive 10 -furiong handicap, but 
then decided that Enbarr was 
the better treated of the pair. 

When finishing a dose third 
to Hand As Iron at Newmarket 
a waiting game was adopted 
by Willy Ryan. Sieve Cautben 
used more forcing tactics at 
Kempton, where the three- 
year-old sprinted clear early in 
the straight to beat Musical 
Youth by three lengths in a 
fast time. 

Navarzato. the Britannia 
Stakes runner-up, and Fulke 
Johnson Houghton's fast- 
improving Shergar colt, 
Nilambar, winner of his last 
two races, appear to form the 
hard core of the opposition. 
Celestial Storm, First Dibs. 
Sweet Mover and Travel Mys- 
terv are others with chances, 
but Enbarr looks well worth a 
sporting nap. 

In the Alycidon slakes Cecil 
runs Queen's Soldier, a colt 
with obvious improvement, 
but so far this season only a 
winner in minor races at 
Beverley and Warwick. The 
obvious choice at the weights 
here is Nisnas, Paul Cole's 
high-class three-year-old, who 
finished only three lengths 
behind Shahrastani when fifth 
in the Epsom Derby. 

When subsequently beaten 
just over two lengths when 
third to Bonhomie in the King 
Edward IV Slakes at Royal 


Ascot, Nisnas would have 
taken a hand in the finish but 
for being repeatedly denied a 
dear run in the last two 
furlongs. 

Other dangers to Nisnas in 
what promises to be a fascinat- 
ing affair are Armada and 
Wassl Touch. Armada, from 
the in-form stable of Guy 
Harwood, is undefeated since 
easily winning the Wood 
Ditton Stakes at the Craven 
meeting. But today he does 
not Took capable of 
conceeding 51bs to Nisnas. 

The same applies to Wassl 
Touch, Sheikh Ahmed A1 
Makioum's $5.1 million 
Keeneland purchase as a year- 
ling. An impressive winner on 


Dream Launch looks reason- 
ably treated with 8 st 131b after 
her comfortable victory in a 
similar event at York- How- 
ever, Chasing Moonbeams 
also showed herself to be an 


By Michael Seely 


improving filly when beating 
Regency rille in good style at 
Newmarket earlier this month 
and is taken to defy top 
weight 

The best bet at 
Newmarket's night meeting 
should be Orban. Or ban, third 
to Lastcomer in a handicap at 
the July meeting, appears to 
have the measure of his 
opponents in the Piper Cham- 
pagne Slakes. Pax Eddery 
looks likely to have a winning 
mount in the Maloney and 
Rhodes Handicap aboard 
Chummy's Pet The gelding 
was just caught dose home in 
a competive handicap last 
Friday at Ascot, by Cree Bay. 

The last race on the card, 
the Beacon Maiden Stakes 
contains some well-bred new- 
comers. John Dunlop's 
representive. Arabian Sheik, a 
Nijinsky colt is held in high 
esteem by his trainer. And he 
can open his account with 
the main danger looking to be 
the Lester Piggott-trained Bin 
ShaddacL 

At Thirsk I like the chances 
of Five Sixes in the Lewis 
Geipd Memorial Challenge 
Cup and Mark Prescon's 
improving three-year-old In 
Dreams in the John Bell 
Memorial Stakes. Five Sixes, 
trained by the astute Nigel 
Tinkler, ran wide on the bend 
when third at Warwick and 
with only 8 J to cany looks 
poised to make it three wins in 
four starts in the two-year-old 
handicap. 


Jockeys 9 jest 


The Goodwood stewards held 
an inquiry into an alleged in- 
cident in Tuesday's Steward's 
Cnp in which Walter S win burn, 
the rider of Padre Pin, had been 
seen by viewers striking Willie 
Carson the jockey on Bertie 
Wooster, with his whip. 

Alter inspecting the BBC 
recording of the race, the 
authorities accepted the jockey’s 
explanation that tine actions bad 
been done in jest. S win burn and 
Carson left the weighing-room 
after the inquiry with their arms 
round each other's shoulders. 


this track as a two-year-old, 
Wassl Touch showed signs of 
returning to his best when 
accounting for Leading Star at 
Newbury last month. Dick 
Hern is pleased with the way 
in which the Northern Dancer 
colt has been progressing and 
Wassl Touch looks sure to run 
a good race. 

The programme opens with 
the alwaysrcompetitive Ralph 
Hubbard Memorial Nursery. 


Longboat is now on target for 
the Doncaster Cap after giving 
Dick Hern, and Willie Carson 
their second triumphs in 
yesterday's Goodwood Cop. 
Dick Hollingsworth's resolute 
galloper will be attempting to 
follow in the footsteps of Le 
Moss, the last horse to complete 
tbe treble of tbe three major cap 
races in 1980. 

The odds of 3-1 on that 
pouters had to lay on Longboat 
suggested that there was little 
ifanpr to the eventual winner 
after Valuable Witness had been 
withdrawn. And so it proved. 
Carson started to rase the 
tempo seven fnrioags from home 
and Longboat forged steadily 
ahead to beat Spkey Story by 
ten lengths with Fetrizzo a 
further eight lengths away In 
third {dace. Jeremy Tree, Valu- 
able Witness's trainer was later 
fined £150 for withdrawing last 
year's winner. 

In direct contrast to the 
Goodwood Cnp tbe five furlong 
King George Stakes turned out 
to be a real thriller. After Dublin 
Lad bad helped to cut out the 
early running, the race devel- 
oped into a dnef between Pat 
Eddery on Doable Schwartz and 
Steve Cautben on Gwydlon. 
After a tremendous battle in the 
last fhrlong, the camera showed 
that Double Schwartz had pre- 
vailed by a short head. 

Great credit is due to Charlie 
Nelson for the improvement that 
he has wrought in Robert 
Songster's four-year-old, whose 
only defeat in four outings this 
season occurred when beaten a 
whisker by Last Tycoon in 
Royal Ascot's King's Stand 
Stake. “There were a lot of 
niggly Kttie things wrong with 
the hone last year," said tbe 
trainer, “and like all Doable 
Form's he appears to hare 
improved with age.” Like 
yesterday's gallant winner, 
Gwydlon, the equally brave ruu- 















\ w _* 

Yesterday's Goodwood winners, Hawmal left, and Don't Forget Me (Photographer Tom Bishop), 
ner-np wffl now take on Green trouble with his breathing in tbe Rtatehnaker International at 


Desert and Last Tycoon in the 
William Hill Sprint Champion- 
ship at York. Last Tycoon will 
be the moult of Cash Asmussen, 
who rode work for Michael 
Dickinson at Man ton yesterday 
morning. 

Hern and Carson hare started 
the afternoon on ■ high note by 
winning the DarnJey Stake with 
HauwmaL Sheikh Mohammed's 


three-year-old proved ideally 
suited by tbe mile and a half and 
drew dear in the last fhrlong to 
win by three lengths. 

After Dalgadiyr had finished 
runner-up, Michael Stoute said 
that the tests had revealed 
nothing wrong with 
Shahrastani. “The colt had

Hern-Henry Cecil stranglehold 
on the Champagne Stakes. 

**l’ve always thought this was 
a good horse," said Richard 
Hannon, the winning trainer, 
“he's done nothing wrong and 
despite running wide at 
Sandown he still beat Luzum 
decisively. 

He needs more time 
ami should make an even better 
three-year-old. I might give him 
one more race, but otherwise 
he'll wait until next season and 
be trained for the 2.000 
Guineas." 

The biggest shock for praters 
came when Asmussen rode 
Come On The Bines to a 25-1 
victory over Truly Rare in the 
Drayton Stakes.

Ifthe late surge in 
the semi-finals by 
Scotland, . Aus-

IwazOand foils to deflect En- 
and and Canada, the two 
iominant countries, * from 
eir goal of sharing the 11 
Id medals in the finals 
Itoday, the -organizers of the 
iGames can' be thankful that 
jthe outsiders have at least 
been successful in keeping the 
meaning of the Common- 
wealth Games alive to the end. 

It sboukl be an exciting 
evening as the five countries 
lattem 

land Canada having their way 
lin the 11 bouts. The conclu- 
sive victories of Janies Peau, 
of New Zealand, and Douglas 
Young, of Scotland, over 
^Dominic D’Amico, of Can- 
%ada, and Eric Canloozo, of 
• ‘^ ^ c England, at heavyweight will 
'*•* tgreatly encourage the two 
Mother Scots and three Aus- 
7' trail an s. 

' \-j . Expand have come under 

'serious threat at five weights: 
: ***%Fkoni the Scots, James 
. . , [McAllister at welterweight 
/ ^^and Harry Lawson at light 
"i n , ' heavyweight, Jeff Harding, the 
j .... .^Australian middleweight and

I'-kh 


: M. fe- . 


takes on Darren Dyer, 
England’s knock-out special- 
ist The Scot must feel be is in 
with a chance after Dyer’s 
failure to stop Damien Denny, 
of Northern Ireland, in the 
semi-final The only way to 
last the three rounds against 
Dyer is either to stay out of 
range of his twofranded 
swings . or fight dose in. 
-McAllister, who is- a fighter, 
will most probably opt for the 
latter ahemative but there is a 
danger of his being caught on 

the way in. 

Neither Harry Lawson, nor 
his opponent at light heavy- 
^ . , weight, James Moran are box- 

npt to prevent England m ofany class, though Moran 
Canada having their wayi the edge in ability. Much 
could depend on who lands 
the first solid blow if Lawson, 
with the crowd behind him, 
could stay on his feet, he may 
take the gold. 

Rod Douglas, at middle- 
weight, will have a bard job 
trying to keep Harding from 
hitting him on the «^in. Like 
so many knock-out experts, 
Douglas does not take kindly 
to being hit on the chin. The 
Australian can not only box, 
but he can also give and take a 
punch. He has a nice left hook 
and if catches Douglas with it, 
it could be the signal for a real 
scrap. 

In the two bouts between 
Canada and England, Mark 


Epton’s height should prove a 
decisive advantage against the 
diminutive Olson, whose 
headgnard is almost as Kg as 

Peter ■ English shoulcMftnd 
Downey a little too sldUful 
and dever for him. 

The contests should not 
lack in action. Olson is a little 
terror, ready to weigh into 
anyone regardless of size and 
be is a good boxer as well as be 
showed against Johnson 
Todd, of Northern Ireland in 
the semi-finals. One Irishman 
was moved to say: “The 
Leprechaun is on the wrong 
side”. The same applies to 
English's bout. He likes to be 
aggressive and the stylish 
Downey will have his hands 
ftiH 

For the rest of the English 
and Canadian contests the two 
countries should have little 
trouble in lifting gold, though 
John Lyon will find Leonard 
Makhanya, the Swaziland fly- 
weight, chanrittg his arm after 
his 21-second knock-out of 
Kenny Webber, of Wales. 

Howard Grant and Asif 
Dar, of Canada, two of the 
finest boxers in the com- 
petition should coast through. 
At heavyweight Peau and 
Young are certain to bring the 
house down. Hie New Zea- 
lander has the heavier punch, 
but Young win have die crowd 
behind him- 


English hopes diminish

the 


■England’s gol< 
medal favourites, 
went out in what 
was officially a 
major surprise hi 
e quarter-final stage of the 
mixed doubles yesterday, but 
. there was all along a feeling of 
i predictability about their 15-7, 

- 17-15 defeat bythe Australians 
' Mike Scandolera and Audrey 
■-Tuckey.’ 

1 Scandolera and Tuckey were 
always going to be the more 
1 mobile partnership. Scandolera 
-also produced a number of 
; dramatic cross-court drive&and 
.flying clipped smashes to end 
some soft-pushing rallies. 

. Furthermore, die Australians 


By Richard Eaton 

had already tasted imp o rtant 
success in the team event when 
they denied Scotland die 
bronze, and dearly Eked the 
flavour of it. 

Their enterprise was exem- 
ptaiy. Scandolera even managed 
one or two returns from difficult 
positions with the racket behind 
bis back and Tuckey supported 
him unexpectedly well at the 
net The only doubt was whether 
or not they could finish it of£ 
Nine march points were needed, 
and the English fought doggedly 
enough — without ever being at 
their best -r to make one red 
that another point or two in the 
Second garitt might have tilted 
the wbofc thing. 

Both Tier and Gowers were 


and it sometimes showed. Gow- 
ers had tendon trouble and die 
side of her keg taped-up, and 
Tier was still in rather plodding 
mood after his bout of fru 
earlier in the week. Thus 
England’s only medallists at the 
world championships last year 
made their mIhuh wh 

England's chances of mid In 
this event were later further 
reduced when Richared 
Outterside and Gill Clark, the 
third seeds, went out in three 
games to the Qmadians Ken 
Poole and Linda Cloutier. That 
defeat put to an end Clark's 
chances of becoming the rally 
. player in the championships to 
win a maximum four medals. 




Patch work: Greg Yebmch, of New Zealand, gives a smile or 
two after winning the gold medal in the pistol shooting event 
at the Mnssdbnrgh range on Wednesday 

Cooper picks off his 
tenth Games medal 

Stan Golinski, of 
Australia, cap- 
tured the gold 
medBl in the full 
bore individual 
_____ event at Barry 
Buddonyesterday. 

His consistency in difficult wind 
conditions saw him to the top of 
the field, though be was forced 
into a shoot-off with Alain 
Marion, of Canada, Ittook eight 
shots apiece to separate the pair, 

Golinskfs maximum proving 
too good for the Canadian. 

GolinsJd ami Marion scored a 
Games record local of 396 out of 
405. 

The tenseness- of the final 
stages was further illustrated by 
another shoot-off— this time fra* 
the bronze. John Bloomfield, of 
England, the oventight leader, 


recovered from a disappointing 
final two stages to push Jim 
Corbett, of Australia, out of a 
medal place. 

In the small bore rifle three- 
position title, Malcolm Cooper 
won the gold medal to take his 
total of Games shootim medals 
to 10. Alister Allan, of Scotland, 
led after the prone section but 
Cooper went four points ahead 
, in the standing, the penultimate 
section. 

Cooper, from Hayling Island, 
won with a Games record of 
1,170 points, only five short of 
the world record. Talcing part in 
only four events, he finished the 
Games, with two gold .and two 
•bronze, to go with the two gold,, 
three silver and one bronze he 
won in Brisbane.

Organizers 
may call 
on full-1 
planners 

Future hosts of the Common- 
wealth Games could have the 
help and guidance of a perma- 
nent group of experts, Ken 
Borthwick, co-chairman of tbe 
organizing committee of tbe 
13th Games, said in Edinburgh 
yesterday. 

H I have spoken to senior 
officers in the Common weahh 
Games Federation and 1 would 
not be surprised if such a group 
emerges in the very near 
future,’* he said. “It is my view, 
from organizing these Games, 
that such a group would provide 
invaluable assurance. They 
would not be there just to check 
up on any committee, but to 
spend considerable time work- 
ing out arrangements for recruit- 
ing sponsors, raising funds 
generally, dealing with tbe 
engagement of television and 
advising on the setting up of 
press centres.*’ 

Borthwick said be would not 
want anyone to think they had 
not had any guidance or talks 
with tbe Federation over tbe 
past few years, but added^l 
think the Federation would now 
want to have a permanent group 
of officials whose task it was to 
feed the organization so that the 
expertise would pass from one 
Games to the next.** 

Borthwick said there had been 
a number of people who had 
thought Edinburgh ill-advised 
to rake on the 13th Games. “I 
don’t believe in good or bad 
luck,” he said. “But it Is a feet 
that we have been dogged with 
difficulties.” 

He said there had been the 
worry over the various rugby 
tours of South Africa and the 
threat that at any moment there 
would be a boycott, all of which 
had concern among 

sponsors. Another element of 
uncertainty was caused with the 
change in the local council. “At 
first, there was a right-wing 
council, then a strong left-wing 
group. There was .no less a 
commitment from them, but it 
did mean we had to deal with 
new councillors and new of- 
ficials. There was a period of six 
months when we had to wait for 
a response from the city 

C0 ^tmgt£eS^cuhies caused 
by such uncertainty was one of 
finance, which was also closely 
tied to the original prospect of 
Edinburgh playing host to 
around 3.150 competitors and 
officials — 1,000 more than in 
Brisbane four years earlier. 
“Two years ago. our budget bad 
been £10 million,” he said: 
“Then it went to £12. 8m. We 
could 'have met that, but as the 
news came in of the large 
numbers of competitors and 
countries proposmgto come, we 
had to look to raise £14. lm.” 

He went on: “It was then that 
we were in difficulty and why we 

had to send out an SOS to 
captains of industry. We mil 
expect to produce a balance 
sheet by the end of December, 
and I am confident that we wfll 
balance the books in the end.” 

- Borthwick said he had learned 
a great deal from his work but 
stressed: “There has to be some 
chang es in tbe constitution 
governing the Games. How can 
yon deal with a situation where 
you don’t know until 18 days 
before they start who is 
coming?” On an optimistic 
note, Borthwick said that al- 
though there had been many 
problems and that morale had 
been affected by the boycott, 
there bad been many good 
points about organizing the 
event- “They far outweigh the 
bad points,” he said. “Bui it is 
just the bad points that get all 
tbe publicity.” 


One more hurdle 
for Dickison 


By Gordon Allan 




Torrential rain 
flooded the four 
greens at Balgreen 
yesterday and held 
up play for more 
Than four hours. 

Before the deluge 
Andy Thomson, of England, 
beat AlfWallace, of Canada, 21- 
14 in the men’s singles — a 
result with a bearing on the 
medals situation. 

Wallace was second to Ian 
Dickison (New Zealand) and his 
defeat by Thomson consid- 
erably reduces his chance ofthe 
silver medal. Dickison was due 
to play Richard Corse (Scot- 
land) yesterday but that match, 
together with the rest of the 
afternoon programme, was post- 
poned until today . If Dickison 
beats Corsie he will make 
certain o If the gold medal. Corrie 
beat Keith Bosley (Hong Kong) 
21-7 yesterday morning. 

Ian Schuback (Australia) led 
Mike Smith (Guernsey) 20-13 
when the rain came. When tbe 
match resumed Schuback, not 
be put off by the interruption, 
won 21-15. He is another player 
with medal aspirations. 

In the women's singles Sense 
McCrone (Scotland), the only 
remaining challenger to Wendy 


Line (England) for the gold 
medal, plays Eileen Bell (North- 
ern Ireland) this morning in one 
of the postponed matches. The 
destination of the gold medal 
might have depended on it if 
Mm Line had lost to Maiaia 
Lum On (Fiji) on Wednesday. 
Bui Mrs Line won 21-20. scor- 
ing seven shots on the last three 
ends after bring 1 4-20 in arrears. 

Mrs Line, usually undemon- 
strative, gave a skip of joy when 
she realised she had three shots 
on the final end. What Mrs Lum 
On thought is not known. 
Recoveries such as Mrs Line's 
.are the stuff ofthe game. 

The men’s pairs gold medal 
has been as good as won by 
Grant Knox and George Adrain 
(Scotland). They are unbeaten 
after nine matches. Their latest 
win was over Malawi by 22-1 1. 
The men's and women's fours 
are still wide open. 

Freda Elliott and Margaret 
Johnston won the women’s 
pairs gold medal for Northern 
Ireland on Wednesday evening 
-when they beat Janet Acklana 
and Margaret Pomeroy (Wales) 
24-19. It was the second time 
Ireland had won a gold at the 
Games. Tbe first was at Vancou- 
ver in 1954. 


Alexander 
switches 
on to the 
bronze 

Liverpool's Paul 
McHugh, accused 
PftTMB of irregular riding 
in the sprint race- 
f %■“ °ff for me bronze 

FgyFM medal, was beaten 
2-0 by Scotland's 
Eddie Alexander before rain 
again interrupted the cycling 
yesterday. 

But Alexander's victory was 
not gained in quite tbe normal 
manner. The 2l-year-old Scot 
won the first race with a last 200 
metres in 11.78 seconds but 
narrowly lost tbe second leg. 

It looked like a decider would 
have to be stand, but McHugh 
was found guilty of not holding 
his line during tbe final sprint 
So it was bronze for Alexander, 
but not before McHugh had sent 
in a written protest and then 
withdrawn it after watching a 
video of the race. 

Earlier Alexander had lost the 
deciding race in tbe sprint semi- 
final to Canadian Alex Ongaro 
who, after the two men bad been 
1-1 overnight, had moved into 
the final with a last 200 metres 
in I I.455sec. 

Then, in the final Ongaro lost' 
tbe first la to the Australian 
favourite, Gary Neiwand. who 
docked I l-35sec fbr the last 200 
metres, but won the second by 
surprise, tactics. He burst away 
shortly after the stan of the final 
lap and though Neiwand came, 
strong at the finish be could not 
catch the Canadian who was 
timed at ll.lOsec. It was 1-1 
when the rain, which has led to 
calls fora roof to be built at tbe 
Meadowbank Velodrome, came 
yet again. 

In the 4,000 metres team 
pursuit qualifying round 
Australia's quartet of- Brett 
Dutton, Wayne McCamey, Mi- 
chael Turtur and Glenn Clarke 
broke tbe Gaines record with a 
time of four minutes 24.75 
seconds, to earn a semi-final 
meeting with Canada; 
who docked 4min 33.1 
were to face New Zealand. 



Kilpin has 
offbeat 
encounter 

By Philip Nkksan 

No one was more 
disappointed in 
his performance in 
the first round of 
tbe wrestling com- 
petition than 
Dave Kitpin. tbe 
London policeman who. with 
retirement scheduled at the end 
of the event, let an opportunity 
for a silver medal slip through 
his fin^HS." When I came off 
the mat, I wanted to hit some- 
body or something," Kilpin. 
normally the most genial and 
even-tempered of men, said. 

In the 100k category, he had 
freed Robert Algie, a sheep 
shearer from wairapa. New 
Zealand, whose main hobby is 
pig hunting. Three times in the 
past, Algie has beaten Kilpin. 
but in Edinburgh, with just one 
minute to go, fulpin managed to 
level the score to 2-2 and would 
have won as, in the event of a 
tie, the last scorer wins. 

But he ran out of breath and 
was given acaution for passivity 
which counted against him. He 
is still .in with a chance of a 
bronze tomorrow (Friday) but, 
he confessed, he still feels 
somewhat crestfallen. With the 
pig hunter now on course for a 
silver, it appears that the gamble 
of Ivan Weir, of Northern 
Ireland, to move up from 90k to 
improve his chances of a medal 
might yet pay off 
. As expected, he was oblit- 
erated by Clark Davis, of Can- 
ada, in the first round, but so 
long as bis strength doesn’t wilt 
against the heavier weights of 
Vulame Takayama, the Fijian, 
and Gabriel Toth, the Austra- 
lian, he could squeeze through 
to a bronze tomorrow. 

Meanwhile, hopes are still - 
running high that England's two 
leading wrestlers, Nod Loban 
(90k), who fought last night, and 
Brian Aspen (57k), will prevent 
Canada taking a clean sweep of 
the top medals, though already 
it looks as if the Canadians 
could capture eight of tbe 10 
golds.

CRICKET 


Career-best for 
Gould to 
lift Sussex on 
danger pitch 

By Peter Ball 

HEADINGLEY: Sussex beat almost impossible and was to 


Yorkshire by 88 runs. 

A sparkling, courageous in- 
nings by Tan Gould, die Sussex 
captain, fittingly provided the 
exact difference between he 
two sides on a wicket which 
had done nothing to improve 
Headingley’s increasingly du- 
bious reputation when it was 
used for the Test against India 
five weeks ago. 

It has been no belter Ibis 
time and has been reported to 
Lord's by the umpires, who 
reportedly told the captains 
that in their view it is unfit for 
first class cricket. Gould was 
even stronger. 

Describing it as "diabolical” 
he added: "Balls were going 
through the top. Yorkshire 
had players caught-behind 
fending the ball off their faces. 
That is not a one-day wicket-** 

Against the fiery Jones and 
!e Roux, who both bowled 
splendidly to claim four wick- 
ets apiece supported by ex- 
cellent catching, it made 
Yorkshire's task impossible. 
Apart from Garrick, who pro- 
vided some late defiance with 
his competition career best 54, 
Gould was the only batsman 
on either side to rise above its 
difficulty and, indeed, danger. 

Arriving with his side in 
deep trouble at 73 for five with 
over half their overs gone, he 
hit a limited over career best 
88 from 80 deliveries to take 
his side into the semi-finals for 
the first time since 1978. 

A measure of Gould's 
achievement was that before 
his arrival batting had looked 


do so again after his departure. 
Even Imran was subdued and 
his partners were rendered 
virtually smokeless as Carrick 
reeled off five maidens in his 
first nine overs while at the 
other end the seam bowlers 
made regular inroads as the 
ball deviated alarmingly. 

When Alan Weds edged to 
slip before Gould was prop- 
erly established, Sussex s 
cause seemed hopeless at 83 
for six with 40 overs gone. 
Instead the recovery com- 
menced immediately as le 
Roux arrived to provide his 
captain with solid support 
His reputation for big hitting 
proceeding him. le Roux was 
accorded a defensive field. 
Responsibly he took the sin- 
gles on offer, while Gould 
moved onto the attach to lift 
his side from the doldrums, 
cutting and driving square and 
hitting forcefully off his legs. 

The 50 partnership came in 
12 overs, a mundane enough 
statistic in most NatWest 
games, but a highly significant 
one here. The next 50 took 
only six as Yorkshire’s grip, 
already slackening, was totally 
lost. The pair had put on 1 15, 
le Roux contributing 29, when 
Gould swung Fletcher high to 
mid-wicket with an over 
remaining to receive a stand- 
ing ovation. 

If Yorkshire were despon- 
dent then, they were soon in 
abject despair as the pitch 
rediscovered its fire. Four 
wickets tumbled for only one 
run, and that a wide, m 11 


De Freitas proves 
all-round worth 


By Richard Streetoo 

LEICESTER: Lancashire, with 
seven nickels in hand, need 139 
runs to beat Leicestershire. 

Lancashire lost three wickets 
in their first eight overs yes- 
terday as they set out to make 
224 and claim a semi-final place 
in the NatWest Trophy. Abra- 
hams and Fairbrother were 
rebuilding the innings before the 
curtain came down for the last 
time on an abbreviated day. 

Four of the six stoppages for 
bad light or rain came as 
Lancashire batted — disruptions 
which did nothing to help the 
batsmen's concentration or the 
game as a spectacle. Lancashire 
have 37 overs left if it is possible 
to complete the match today but 
are already behind on run rate if 
no further play is possible. 

Lancashire lost their first 
wicket when Mendis flashed 
outside the off-stump and was 
caught behind. Gower held good 
catches at second slip to bring 
about the dismissals of Fowler 
and Give Lloyd, the second 
coming when he grasped a 
rebound from Potter standing 
next to him. 

Leicestershire, who were put 
in to bat. did well to score as 
many runs as ihey did. They 
were in a parlous state at 107 for 
six before De Freitas and 
Whittkase added 97 in 1 8 overs. 

Allott early on look two im- 
portant wickets; the wily 
Simmons conceded only 1 8 runs 
as he bowled his 12 overs, 
uninterrupted apart from lunch. 

It was two irregular members 
of the side, though, that Lan- 
cashire had to thank chiefly for 
their initial success. Hayhurst, 
replacing Makinson, took four 
wickets during nine overs, 
which only cost 22 runs. 

Sianwonb. keeping wicker for 
ihe injured Maynard, held four 
catches, three of them top notch 
efforts as he dived to his right. 


wickets came from baaing in- 
discretions, he can rightly point 
to ihe fact that the wickets are in 
the scorebook. 

Cobb and Willey were ADott’s 
first victims during an opening 
spell which always combined 
hostility and steadiness and 
which was not rewarded as 
much as it deserved to be. 
Hayhurst began by having 
Gower caught at square lex as he 
turned a half volley off has kgs. 
Baklerstone and Potter were 
caught behind as they chased 
balls well wide of the off stump. 
Boon missed a ball that he made 
into a yorker. 

The rescue act between De 
Freitas and Whitticase ended 
when AUott returned and dis- 
missed both men in successive 
overs. Whitticase fell to another 
of Stanworth’s leaps from the 
springboard; De Freitas lifted a 
full loss to deep mid-wicket. 

De Freitas, who is Domini- 
can-born but English qualified, 
batted with real authority. He is 
also Leicestershire's leading 
wicket taker this season. These 
days, in terms of all-round 
usefulness, he is not that Ear 
behind Pringle.

Richard Williams and Robert 
Bailey helped lift some of the 
gloom over Northampton yes- 
terday with a fine display of 
batting as Nort hams’ match 
against the touring New Zea- 
landers was onoe again badly 
disrupted fry rain. 

After the first day’s play had 
been washed out, heavy over- 
night rain delayed the start until 
after lunch. New Zealand made 
up for lost time, however, by 
taking the first two wickets for 
16 after the county had elected 
to bat. Two newcomers, Alan 
Fordhara - and Mark 
Gouldstone, opened and put on 
1 5 in five overs before Fordham 
was caught behind off* of Willie 
Watson, who started the season 
playing on a cricket scholarship 
for Northamptonshire's second 
deven. 

In the next over Robin Boyd- 
Moss played on to Derek Stir- 
ling, fora single, but Gouldstone 
played some confident strokes 
and. together with Williams, 
carried the total lo SO by the 
15th over. 

Gouldstone was eventually 
out for 35, trapped leg before by 
Barren with the score on 73. 
That brought in Bailey to join 
Williams for a partnership 
which added 14S for the fourth 
wicket. Within eight overs Wil- 
liams had caught his partner on 
35. hitting 1 1 fours in a 46-bail 
half-century. But with both 
batsmen seemingly on their way 
to a century apiece they mised

Great hope out on

By Alan Gibson 


It was not a sunny day. 
Qouds were always threatening. 
Still, they made a start at 1 1.45. 
Worcesteshire put Warwick- 
shire in. After a dullish hour, 
both cricketingly and meteo- 
rologically, lunch was taken 
with the score 23 for one after 17 
overs. Smith was the man out, 
bowled by Inch more. Moles and 
Kallkhanan were dinging on, 
uncertainly. 

Soon after lunch, with no 
addition to die score. Moles was 
bowled by PateL In the next 
oyer Amiss was caught in the 
slips. At 38 Hum page was 
bowled round his kgs by PateL 

By this time we were begin- 
ning to ask each other about the 
pitch. It was undoubtedly giving 
Patel's spinners some help an d 
was hard to score runs on, 
whoever the bowler. The out- 
field was also slow and the 
Worcestershire fielding lively. 
Kal licharran hit the first bound- 
ary. through the covers, in the 
thirtieth over. The SO struggled 
up in the next. At 58, in the 35th 
over, Asif was caught behind the 
wicket. 

Kallicharran was now 


Warwickshire’s only hope of a 
substantial total He had hardly 
made a mistake, except in some 
erratic running between wickets.

elimination from tbe com- 
petition or the chance of a

to I to 6. 

In the men's junior events, 
the coxed pair came fourth out 
of five crews missing the vital 
third place by one length to the 
Argentinian crew, and sadly 
have now been etiminaied. 

The British eight rowed 
courageously and were second 
after 500 metres in their heat, 
half a length behind the West 
German crew, but in the second 
half of the 1,500 metre course, 
the home team, the Greets, 
rowed past the British crew who 
tberhselves were dosing on the 
tiring Germans, but at the line, 
the West Germans held off the 
British onslaught by one second 
to gain the second qualifying 
place for the final Despite the 
bitter disappointment of the 
British boys, they went out 
valiantly and with no disgrace. 

In tbe other heat of the eights, 
the Italian stroke was very 
unlucky to break his oar in the 
second half of the course as the 
crew lay a close third behind the 
United States. The wooden 
handle came apart from the 
plastic and metal loom of the 
oar braving him and his crew 
unable to complete the course 
competitively.

inished last in their heat, some 
five seconds adrift of the crucial 
fourth place, whilst tbe coxless 
pair also finished last some 
lengths behind the fourth-placed 
Czechoslovak crew. 

The double scull narrowly 
missed qualifying for their final. 
Adrienne Gnmsaitcb and Mi-

Dickie has 
crown in 
his sights 

While Steve Sims thinks over 
his professional future after 
failing in his bid to win tbe 
British featherweight title for a 
second time, Robert Dickie is 
already lining up the next step in 
his blossoming ring career. 

At 27, Situs must now be 
seriously considering retirement 
after the setback of defeat 
against holder Dickie at Ebbw 
Vale on Wednesday night. But a 
successful first defence for 22 
year-old Dickie should give him 
the chance of a challenge for Jim 
McDonnell's European title if 
he can first beat John Feeney.of 
Hartlepool. 

“I want to win the Lonsdale 
Belt outright in record ilmn and 
then 1 hope to go for the 
European tide." the young 
champion from Swansea, said. 
But asked if he has Barry 
McGuigan, the dethroned world 
champion, in his sights, Dickie 
replied: "111 just take it one fight 
at a time.” 

The hard-hitting Dickie 
halted Sims's challenge in the 
fifth round of a scheduled 12 
rounds contest with the New- 
port boxer unable to beat the 
count after being floored by a 
devastating left to the body. 

He was full of praise for his 
opponent after tbe bout: "Steve 
just keeps coming and is very 
aggressive. He hurt me once or 
twice, but I was prepared to go 
the foil distance if necessary,” 
Dickie said. 


GOLF 


Gilford following 
a winning course; 


David Gilford, the only pre- 
vious winner left in the neio. 
moved comfortably into the last 
eight of the English .a?Jj a “E r 
championship at Hillside, 
Southport, yesterday. He beat 
Geoffrey Birtwell, runner-up in 
the British championship in 
June, by 3 and 2 and then made 
light of what seemed more 
formidable opposition in Steven 
Bmtomley. like Gilford a cur- 
rent England international. 

Bonomley, who on his own 
merit had not had to go beyond 
the 16th in his four previous 
matches, was now cut short at 
the 14th on somebody dses. 
Gilford won by 6 and .4. 
Birtwell, at 41 more than twice 
Gilford's age, won the first hole 
in their fourth round match. But 
It proved to be a felsc dawn and 
four down at the uim left him 
nowhere to go. . 

Bonomley has been m such 
sparkling form an week that his 
encounter with Gilford seemed 
to be the match of the afternoon, 
given extra spice by the contrast 
in their make-ups — Bonomley, 
robust in build and character; 
Gilford freckle-faced, slight and 
seif-effacing. 


By John Hennessy 

But Gilford proved the swan-, 
ger when they came race to face; 
playing his best golf of the week 


and taking full advantage of the 
occasional lapse by his oppo- 
nent He was two under for the 
holes played, if conceded an 
eight-foot putt for a birdie two 
on the treacherous I Oth. 

The only blemish in an other- 
wise impeccable round of golf 
by Gilford was a wayward seven 
iron to the ninth green. He lost 
that bole to a four, but it proved 
only smalt consolation for 
Bottom fey. 

Peier Baker, like Gilford a 
seeded player and incipient 
professional, also took his allot- 
ted place in the sixth round with 
two big wins. In the morning, 
for the second successive time, 
he won by 8 and 7 against the 
hapless Farrell Wieland, the 
match conceded this time on the 
eleventh green rather than the 
eleventh tee. as on Wednesday. 
In the afternoon, he achieved a 
long-awaited revenge when he 
beat tan Spencer by 5 and 3. It 
was Spencer who knocked Baker 
out of the British Boy’s 
Championship the last time 
they met three years ago. 


Slaughter sets the pace 


Ullna (Reuter) - John 
Slaughter of America, and the 
Argentinian, Luis Carbonem 
were tbe early pacemakers at 
three under par. in yesterday’s 
first round of the Scandinavian 
Open golf championship in 
Sweden. 

Slaughter completed tbe out- 
ward nine in 33 with the help of 
two birdies and an eagle, and 
Carbonetli, out in 34, drew level 
with a birdie ax the llih. Jose 
Rivero of Spain, the Swede, 
Anders Forsbrand. Mike Clay- 


ton, of Australia, and Britain's 
Derrick Cooper were among 
those on two under par. 

Sandy Lyle, who lost last year 
to the Australian, Ian Baker.-. 
Finch after taking the lead then 
returning 75 in the final round, 
turned in one under par, picking 
up two birdie fours. Craig 
Startler, runner-up to Sam Tor- 
rance in the 1983 event, turned 
in a level par 36, but the 
Australian. Graham Marsh, 
who was last year’s runner-up, 
took 3S on the first nine.

By Pat Botcher, Athletics Correspondent 


Steve Cram ran better than 
even be would have hoped 
with a winning performance 
that more than fulfilled every- 
one else's expectations, I 
minute 43 J2 seconds, a 
Commonwealth 800 metres 
record. 

But the world dass contest 
which evaporated when 
Sebastian Coe's illness pro- 
voked a predictable with- 
drawal yesterday morning 
shifted to the women's javelin 
where Tessa Sanderson beat 
Fatima Whitbread for the first 
time in eight meetings since 
Miss Sanderson won the 
Olympic title two years ago 
ana Miss Whitbread won the 
bronze medaL 

Since then. Miss Whitbread 
has been a consistent 70 
metres-plus thrower, while 
Miss Sanderson has lan- 
guished. That recent scenario 
looked like being repealed 
when Miss Whitbread began 
with throws in the mid-60s, 
peaking with 68.54 metres in 
the third round, while Miss 
Sanderson could not even 
reach 60 metres with her first 
throw. 

But then in the fifth round, 
with Miss Whitbread gesticu- 
lating confidently after each 
throw. Miss Sanderson 
stepped up and launched her 
javelin out to 69.80 metres. 
Miss Whitbread was unable to 
respond with her final throw, 
and the victory came appro- 
priately in the same stadium 
where Miss Sanderson last 
beat Miss Whitbread in Brit- 
ain, setting a Commonwealth 
record of 73.54 metres three 
years ago. 

Cram's was an extraor- 
dinary time in the cool and 
windy conditions, as the 
champion himse lf conceded. 
And in the absence of Coe, 
still suffering from a throat 
infection. Cram won by the 
extraordinary margin of a 
dozen metres from Tom 
McKean, who nonetheless 
pronounced himself well sat- 
isfied with a Scottish record of 
f .44.80, his best by over a 
second. 

Peter Elliott, who even- 
tually finished third in 


1 :45.42, provided the impetus, 
as he admitted that everyone 
knew he would. Elliott passed 
200 metres in 24.88 seconds, 
with Cram last five metres 
behind. Elliott relented in the 
second 200 metres, to pass the 
bell in 51.03, with Cram srill 
lasL 

Cram made up the gap in 
the back straight, but was still 
a couple of metres behind 
Elliott with 200 to go. Then he 
accelerated so viciously that 
he almost had a 10 metre lead 
at the beginning of the 
straight His last 200 metres, 
run with the same authority 
and control, was well under 25 
seconds, and the 1,500 metres, 
whose beats begin this after- 
noon. should be a similar 
formality. 

Cram said afterwards that 
he had expected to run around 
imin 44sec to Imin 45sec, 
"but to run a time like that in a 
championship race ranks this 
very highly among my best 
performances. 1 was Sony that 
Seb (Coe) was not in the race; 
he would have added to iL 
Let's just say it would have 
been nice to see him here”. 


More Games 
reports and 
results. Page 29 

Even considering the fine 
performance, which broke 
what was then a superlative 
time of 1:43.85, the previous 
Commonwealth record, set by 
John Kipkuigat, of Kenya, in 
1974, Cram would not be 
drawn on whether he would 
attempt the same double in 
the European championships 
at the end of this month. 

The animation which 
Cram's fine performance 
brought to the coolest and 
wettest athletics day in 
Meadowbank Stadium 
continued with the women's 
javelin, the men's high jump, 
in which Milt Ottey, of Can- 
ada, beat Geoff Parsons, of 
Scotland, in a very dose 
competition, another Ca- 
nadian, Atlee Maborn, in- 


dicated that be will be a sprint 
force in world terms in years 
to come, and Steve Ovett won 
his first major title in six years. 

Despite what had looked to 
be a strong challenge from 
John Walker, of New Zealand, 
and a threat from Tim 
Hutchings and Jack Buckner, 
the other two English runners, 
to put the pressure on Ovett at 
least four laps from home, the 
race turned out to be a perfect 
platform for Ovett's sprint 
finish. 

The opening 2,000 metres, 
led alternately, by Paul 
Lolergan and Paul McCloy, of 
Canada, and Terry Greene, of 
Northern Ireland, presented 
no problems to Ovett several 
metres behind, since they were 
run in 5.27.04. The 3,000 
metres would have been com- 
parably even slower, bad not 
Hutchings taken up the pace 
and gone into a lead of 10 
metres in 8.08.72. With three 
laps to go, Hutchings was 
caught by Ovett, Buckner and 
the other Canadian, Paul Wil- 
liams. When no one else made 
any positive move in the next 
two laps, the sprint off the 
final bend was as much a 
formality for Ovett as it had 
been for Cram. 

Kirsty McDermott ' was 
probably the biggest surprise 
of the last Commonwealth 
Games in Brisbane when she 
won the 800 metres. After 
putting on excessive weight, 
and losing interest two years 
ago. Miss McDermott almost 
disappeared from the sport. 
She revived herself suf- 
ficiently to set a Common- 
wealth record last year, and 
successfully defended her title 
yesterday, but, even consid- 
ering the nature of com- 
petition. an 800 metres win 
outside two minutes (2:00.94) 
does not inspire confidence 
for the European champion- 
ships in Stuttgart. 

Parsons, a declared self- 
publicist, saluted the crowd 
after each successive, success- 
ful height, and they responded 
in kind for up to 2^8 metres 
Parsons had the lead. 


Favourites in surprise exit 


There was a big upset in the 
Games badminton champion- 
ships yesterday when the top 
seeded English national cham- 
pions, Nigel Tier and Gillian 
Gowers, lost in the mixed 
doubles quarter finals yes- 
terday. They went down 15-7, 
17-15 to unseeded Austra- 
lians. Mike Scandolera and 
Audrey Tuckey, who are 
competing in their third 
Games. 

There had been joy for 
Australia earlier in the day 
when Stan Golinski captured 


the gold medal in the full bore 
individual event at the Barry 
Buddon shooting range: And 
in so doing the 52-year-old 
from Sydney made up for his 
pairs disappointment earlier 
in the week. 

On that occasion a “com- 
plete miss” at the vital last 
stage cost him dear. His 
consistency in difficult wind 
conditions saw him reign su- 
preme yesterday, though he 
was forced into a shoot-off for 
the top prize with Alain 
Marion of Canada. It took 


eight shots each to separate 
the {air, GolinskTs maximum 
proving just too good for the 

ranadimi. 

Scotland's Eddie Alexander 
gained an unorthodox victory 
over Liverpool's Paul Mc- 
Hugh in the cycling sprint 
race-off for the bronze medaL 
The 21 -year-old Alexander 
won the first race with a last 
200 metres of 1 1.78 seconds 
but narrowly lost the second 
leg. Alexander was awarded 
the bronze after McHugh was 
found guilty of not holding his 
fine during the final sprint 


Cheshire Homes 
are all about 
caring 

in so many ways. 


It was the classic Ovett 
victory: the i mp e ri ous style we 
lave seen a hundred or more 
Hw« before but which had 
crumbled during illness in Los 
Angeles two summers ago. 
The old last-bend executioner 
came back at 31 In give 
Meadowbank a thrill on an 
afternoon of genuine world- 
class track and field, together 
with Cnun and McKean, 
Ottey and Parsons, Sanderson 
and Whitbread. 

Ten years ago in Montreal 
Ovett had misjudged his 800 
metres. A year later fa the 
World Cup fa Dfisseldorf he 
infUcted a sweeping defeat on 
John Walker, the Olympic 
1300 metres champion, which 
was the foretaste of an un- 
rirailed spell of world domina- 
tion over four laps nntO 
Sebastian Coe memorably 
beat him fa Moscow. 

Since his bronze that day be 
had not won a championship 
medal: out of action fa 1982, 
fonrtfa fa the first world 
championship in 1983, 
eclipsed a year later. It was a 
sweet swansong, for he cannot 
hope to repot yesterday's 
triumph fa the European 
championships, though he will 
havea by. The time may have 
been modest bet what a great 
racer the Scottish crowd saw 

regaining his pride. 


A gaunt face at 
their shoulder 


For six laps he buns about 
at the back of the 5JHX) field 
and when Hatchings made his 
necessary burst with five and a 
half laps to go there was Ovett 
moving op, the destroyer 
shadowing on the horizon. 
With three hips fa go Walker, 
the veteran of 34 and now 
some 50 metres adrift, was out 
of the reckoning. 

Ovett was in his favourite 
striking position, a stride or 
two off the leaden Hutchings, 
Buckner, then Hfachings 
again at the bell, with that 
gaunt face at their shoulder. 
Into the last bend Ovett was 
glancing behind to ensure that 
it was a two-man battle, 
delaying the blow as late as 
possible. It came on the end of 
the carve and with it that wave 
of setf-acdaim which osed to 
seem so arrogant fa a younger 
man but now was no more than 
nostalgic. 

He had so much difficulty 
adjusting to feme and fortune 
fa the most turbulent years of 
his career and we mast hope 
that Daley Thompson can 
eventually find the same 
adjustment. 

Cram's 800 metres was of 
such exceptional dass that, 
though Seb Coe's presence 
would have added to the 
prestige of the occasion, it 
could hardly have improved it, 
for Cram's time was only a

fifth of a second outside the 
Olympic record of Cruz in Los 
Angeles. Coe, at his c m rent 
best at nearly 30, would have 
been stretched to hold Cram 
on this performance, never 
mind with a vires infection. 

Given the fact that Cram 
was lolloping along at the back 
of the field at the end of the 
first lap, I asked him after- 
wards ifr m weather more 
sociable than Edinburgh's, 
Coe's world record of I infante 
42.73 seconds might be within 
his reach, which he himself 
has doubted. 

His answer was that he 
considers it still probably is, 
though be might get near it by 
dunce if everything was right 
on some particular day. He 
was at the bad: at the bell, he 
said, because be prefers to ran

The time fa right to finish at

brought 12387 runs at nearly 
36 and three Test caps.

not one that is exclusive to the 
visitors this week. Although 
they are a tittle more used to 
such conditions, Judy Bell, the 
American captain, will also be 
keeping a careful eye on her

area,” she said, “but in these 
sort of conditions everybody 
is going to suffer. The vital 
thing is to make sure that body 
temperature is kept as low as 
possible, because once that 
starts to go you are in 
trouble.”

confident of her teams

meagre tally of two British and 

Irish victories in the past 23 
stagings .of the event. “The

ki 

above a 
manager 

By John Woodcock 

Cricket Correspondent 

The Test and County 
Cricket Board have resisted 
the idea, mercifully, of patting 
one person in more or less sole 
charge of the England side. To 
have done so could have made 
the captain's job untenab le. 
Instead, the name of an assis- 
tant manager for the forthcom- 
ing tour of Australia, of a more 
conventional type hot with a 
longer contract fa the offing 
next spring, will be ann ounced 
today. 

The overall manager for 
Australia is likely to be an- 
nounced at the same time, 
together with the captain, who 
seems sare to be Mike 
Gatting, and a 

physiotherapist. 

Although the board deny. 
Ray Illingworth's assertion 
that the assistant manager’s, 
job was his for the taking, be • 
was undoubtedly a front run- . 
ner. His interest waned when 
he knew he would not be given 
foe foil powers he wanted, A 
good thing, too. Cricket does: 
not lend itself, fa foe way that 
football may, to a generalis-. 
si mo. I very much doubt 
whether Illingworth, when he ! 
was captain of England, would 
ever bare tolerated anyone', 
frith foe authority that he 
sought for himself. 

Seeing the game 
in a new light 

Cussed as he can tm- 
doubtedly be, he has one of the 
astutest of cricket brains. No 
doubt, too, he sees the game 
now in a much wider perspec- 
tive than when, after his side 
had regained the Ashes fa 
Australia in 1970-71, the 
Cricket Council felt obliged to 
express their “grave concern 
about incidents involving dis- 
sent from umpires' decisions”, 
and on the major issues of the 
day he talks a lot of sense. Bnt 
a cricket side fly not a 
manager's flag but a captain's. 
Jardfae's did, Clive Lloyd's, 
did, David Gower's did, 
Illingworth's did and 
Gattfag's most 

In football foe manager does 
almost everything, even to the 
extent of deriding who shall 
substitute for whom and when. 
In cricket many of the most 
important decisions have to be 
taken on the field and most 
therefore be foe captain's. 
What could be worse than that 
he should constantly be look- 
ing over his shoulder, feeling 
that not be but the manager 
was responsible for the result 
and that it was foe manager’s 
job that depended on ft. 

It is because foe running of a 
happy and successful cricket . 
team is best done in partner- * 
ship that foe four names for - 
Australia will be announced - 
simultaneously. They were, 
agreed upon yesterday by the * 
executive committee of the 
TCCB for approval at today's * 
meeting of the full board. 7 

If they get it right this time, " 
and there is no certainty of 
that, good will have come from : 
their mistake of sending Bob 
Willis to West Indies last 
winter. Upon realizing how - 
wrong they had got that, they 
gave more careful thought 
than oseal to today's! 
appointments. - 

Proposal contrary / 
to TCCB policy 

I hope they will view with, 
foe same concern news of the 
International Cricket 
Conference's proposal that, 
any registered player going to 
South Africa, if only to coach, 
shall disqualify himself from, 
playing for England. This is. 
directly contrary to what has ; 
always been the Tees's de- > 
dared and calculated policy. .. 

In March 1982, when slap- 
ping a three-year Test ban on 
the England players who were- 
foeu touring Sooth Africa, the 
board went out of their way to 
stress foe right of the individ- 
ual to seek cricketing employ 
meat in Sooth Africa during 
his off season so long as ft wds 
not as a member of an ear' 
authorized team. 

At various times since then 
the board have reaffirmed 
their stance on this. Eat* 
winter some 60 or 70 county, 
cricketers go to South Africa. 
By doing so they avoid foe. 
dole, improve their own 
cricket, help the game riglit 
across foe board in the Repub- 
lic and are pursuing in a 
perfectly legitimate and 
proper manner their 
livelihood. - 

If foe TCCB snbndt now to 
what amounts to political 
blackmail by certain members 
of foe ICC they will seriously, 
compromise a successful, im- 
portant and constructive 
relationship with the" 
Cricketers’ Association, 
whose opposition to foe ICCV 
proposal has already been 
established, and nm fa to all 
kinds of tenable with the law 
as it relates to restraint of 
ttade. Upon such matters as 
fois Illingworth is now a very' 
discerning spokesman.
