Petrol rise 
of 5p may 
not be last 

By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 

BP and Esso have dashed 
the Government’s hopes of a 
continuing brake on petrol 
prices with a 5p increase in the 
cost of a gallon from midnight, 
the second increase in two 
weeks. 

There was an added warn- 
ing by BP that a further 
increase of “a few pence" was 
likely soon. 

The latest rise seems certain 
to be matched by the other 
main suppliers, all of whom 
have complained in recent 
weeks of big losses on petrol 
sales, in the- wake of the

Today’s increase lifts the 
typical price of a gallon of four 
star to 169.6p, and comes after 
eight months of felling prices, 
which saw petrol drop from 
more than 2Q0p to 157p. 

A fortnight ago most of the 
big oil companies imposed an 
increase of 7p a gallon and 
said that more increases were

Yesterday, BP blamed the 
rise on the production cut 
agreed earlier this month by 
the Organization ofPetroIeum 
Exporting Companies (Opec).

price of crude has gone up 50 
per cent in three weeks and the 
latest increase is not propor- 
tionate to the rise in erode: 
There may be more increases

The increase signals the 
failure of the Treasury to 
persuade oil companies to 
bold prices at low levels. 
Increases in petrol, home

have a significant effect on the 
retail price index and could

Opposition leaders urged 
toe Prime Minister yesterday 
to veto any use of United 
States bases in Britain for 
launching any second bomb- 
ing raid on Libya. 

Their calls came as US and 
Egyptian warships engaged in 
manoeuvres in tbe southern 
Mediterranean amid specula- 
tion in Washington that Colo- 
nel Gadaffi is about to mount 
new terrorist attacks and must 
be taught another lesson. 

It was also confirmed that 
General Vernon Walters, 
President Reagan’s special en- 
voy who obtained Mrs That- 
cher’s consent to the use of 
British-based Fills in the 
April raids, will visit London 
and other European capitals in 
about a week's time. 

Mr David SieeL, the Libera] 
leader, said: “In view of the 
public outcry on the last 
occasion when the Americans 
used facilities here to launch 
their attacks, the British Gov- 
ernment should make it quite 
clear that the Americans 
would not be authorized to 
use Nato bases in this country 
for any such strike." 

Mr Donald Anderson, a 
Labour foreign affairs spokes- 
man, said: “Mrs Thatcher 
must realize how unpopular 
her uncritical support for the 
last US adventure in Libya 
made her. She must . . . deny 
them use, either directly or 
indirectly, of their bases in this 
country again." 

Whitehall sources say that 
to date the Americans have 
not approached Britain for 
such help. 

It is suggested that the 
bellicose noises in Wash- 
ington are intended to en- 
courage anti -Gadaffi elements 
in Libya. 

Downing Street said yes- 
terday: “We are aware of the 
reports there have been of 
recent American statements 
about Libya, but that is a 
matter for the American 
Administration. There is no 
comment we wish to make." 

Mr Anderson added that the 
current "Reagan sabre- 


rattling" had more to do with 
the mid-term congressional 
elections than with events in 
the Middle East and claimed 
that he was “trying to wrap 
himself in the flag again". 

Although the Government 
appears to have recovered 
from the public backlash after 
the April assault, there seems 
little doubt that Mrs Thatcher 
would be placed in an unenvi- 
able position if asked to 
sanction further action. 

After that attack, she said 
she had gone through agonies 
before approving British in- 
volvement and that she hoped, 
most earnestly that she would 
not be asked a second time. 

Bui she coupled this with a

By Craig Seton 

Olivia Channon, the daugh- 
ter of Mr Paul Channon, the 
Secretary of State for Tmfe 
and Industry, left a fortune of 
nearly £700,000 in a will she 
made only six’ months before 
her death after > party at 
Oxford University. 

The will, published yes- 
terday. showed that Miss 
Channon left £686,009 gross. 
£541,959 net, to be divided 
equally between her sister 
Georgia, aged 20, and her 
brother Henry, aged 17. 

Miss Channon. who was 22, 
made out the will on Christ- 
mas Eve last year. 

In June this year she was 
found dead in a student’s 


room at Christ Church, Ox- 
ford, after celebrating the end 
of her modem history final 
examinations at a party where 
she was believed lo have taken 
drugs. 

Her fortune was believed to 
have been amassed from a 
series of trusts set up by her 
rich family, which is closely 
Jinked to the wealthy 
Guinness brewing and bank- 
ing dynasty. 

Miss Channon died as a 
result of choking on her own 
vomit after the celebrations 
with her close friends. But 
after her death several people 
were charged with supplymg 
her with heroin or possessing 
drugs. 


Miss Channon, who was at 
St Hilda's College, Oxford, 
was known by close friends to 
- have had an annual allowance 
of about £25,000 as an under- 
graduate and owned a bouse, 
worth an estimated £60,000, 
which she shared with other 
students in the university city. 

In a letter she wrote three 
months before her death in 
June.. Miss Channon re- 
quested that her dose friend, 
Rosie Johnston, should take 
£2.000 from her will to throw 
a party for all of her friends, 
but it was not known whether 
she made specific provision in 
her will for such a party. 

Miss Johnston, aged 22, and 
Sebastian Guinness, Miss 


Channon's second cousin and 
heir to the banking and brew- 
ing fortune, were later charged 
with supplying ' her- with 
heroin. 

Mr Paul Channon. aged 50. 
Olivia's father, inherited 
considerable wealth from his 
father, 'Sir Hairy “Chips" 
Channon, who maiiried Honor 
Guinness; the granddaughter 
of toe firet Lord Iveagh, the 
founder of the Guinness 
empire. 

Mr Chanson's wife, Ingrid, 
was formerly married to mil- 
lionaire Jonathan Guinness, a 
director of the brewing 
company. 

Mr and Mrs Channon have 
a country mansion" in Essex, a 


house worth an estimated £2 
million in Cheyne Walk, Lon- 
don." and a villa on the West 
Indian island of Mustique. 

The Duke and Duchess of 
Kent and their daughter. Lady 
Helen Windsor, attended Miss 
Channon's funeral, together I 
with Count Gottfried von, 
Bis mark, the great great grand- 
son of Prince' Otto, toe 
founder of modern Germany. 

It was .in the Count's stu- 
dent room at Oxford that Miss 
Channon was found dead. He 
has since been charged with 
possessing drugs. 

An inquest into Miss 
Channon's death is due to be 
held in Oxford next month.

Don’t let her become a poor relation. 

Throughout the country there are thousands who, like 
Miss Ferguson here, have shown unstinting devotion to their 
family. Often itk to the detriment of a promising career and 
results in years of hardship. 

Likewise, many from a professional or similar back- 
ground whose rime has been spent helping the community 
must retire on low; fixed incomes. 

The Royal United Kingdom Beneficent Association 
was founded in 1863 to care for these deserving cases.

The brilliant duel Between 
the two Soviet grandmasters 
was greeted by a standing 
ovation from the audience 
when the draw was agreed just 
before 10 pm. 

The game had been a wild, 
fluctuating, knife-edge strug- 
gle where at first Karpov and 
then Kasparov appeared to 
have chances to score a de- 
cisive victory- -* 

.The opening, yet another 
Grunftld Defence, duplicated 
that of game nine. Karpov's 
thirteenth move deviated 


But at the dose of play 
Kasparov recognized that his 
extra Pawn was insufficient 
for victory and agreed to a 
draw without sealing a move.

slightly from the earlier model 
and his stunning fifteenth 
move broke fresh territory. 
Offering the sacrifice of Rook 
for Knight, Karpov would 
have obtained an overwhelm- 
ing initiative if Black had 
accepted the sacrifice with IS 
bxc6, 16 Ne7+ Kh8, 17 Nxc6. 

Kasparov wisely declined 
this Greek gift After move 
twenty many experts were 
predicting that the White at- 
tack would be decisive. But 
Kasparov struck back with an 
unexpected counter attack 
involving his Queen and 
Knight 

On move twenty-four 
Karpov could have fenced a 
draw by playing 24 Nxg6+. 
Instead he bravely played on 
for a win by capturing, but he 
appeared to overlook 
Kasparov’s riposte; a powerful 
move with his own Queen 
which prevented checkmate

of its Hawk 200 fighter after a 
Ministry of Defence inquiry 
found that the crash of the 
prototype almost two months 
ago was not caused by a 
technical fault 
■ The company said yes- 
terday that an investigation of 
the wreckage bad not shown 
any evidence of malfunction 
or structural failure before 
impact. The read-out from the 
accident data recorder showed 
no sign of warnings or engine 
malfunction. 

The inquiry concluded that 
the most likely explanation for 
the accident was a momentary 
loss of orientation by the pilot, 
Mr Jim Hawkins, who was 
killed. 

The Hawk 200 is a develop- 
ment of the Hawk jet trainer 
which is in service with the 
Royal .Air Force. Intended for 
sale to Third World countries, 
the prototype bad been flown 
by four pilots on 27 flights 
lasting a total of nearly 28 
hours. 

It was the only Hawk 200 
built by BAe. The company 
has continued work on the 
project but has not yet started 
assembling a second aircraft. 

Tornado fighter 
seeks US sale 

A new version of the Tor- 
nado fighter-bomber, now in 
service with the Royal Air 
Force and in West Germany 
and Italy, could be sold to the 
United States Air Force. 

The new aircraft, the Tor- 
nado ECR (electronic combat 
and reconnaissance variant), 
is being developed for the 
West German Air Force to 
destroy air defences, disrupt 
electronic systems and carry 
out reconnaissance. 

It is estimated that the US 
could require up to 150 air- 
craft to fulfil a similar role in 
the next five years. 

The Tornado manufacturer. 
Pan a via. which represents the 
three partner nations, is seek- 
ing a US company to take the 
lead in promoting the sale of 
Tornado to the Americans. 

(t is argued that Tornado is 
the only suitable aircraft with 
an ability to operate around 
the dock, in all weather and at 
low altitudes. 

However, it will be difficult 
to persuade the Americans to 
choose a European aircraft to 
replace their ageing Wild 
Weasals. and they may wish to 
install US electronic equip- 
ment. The US Air Force is also 
looking at the possibility of 
adapting two existing combat 
aircraft to an ECR role.

Seven hundred workers are 
to lose their jobs in Northern 
Ireland with the announce- 
ment yesterday of the closure 
of a tobacco plant producing 
18 million cigarettes a day. 

The decision by GaUahers 
to shut its main factory in 
Belfast and concentrate prod- 
uction in Co Antrim, is a 
severe blow to the province's 
hard pressed manufacturing 
industry and its unemploy- 
ment level, when 129,432 
people are out of work. 

The announcement may 
sway the 7,000 workers 
contemplating strike action at 
Shorts aircraft manufacturers, 
over the management's order 
for the removal of “loyalist" 
flags, emblems and banting. 

Leading Democratic Union- 
ist Party politicians have met 
the management of the com- 
pany with their own proposals 
on die issue. But Mr Peter 
Robinson, the DUP member 
for East Belfast, refused to 
give details of the proposals 
which they will now take to the 
employees. He said: “I am 
greatly concerned that action

Its response sees danger in 
the proposal to phase out 
domestic rates over a period 
of up to 10 years and replace it 
fay a flat-rate community 
charge, payable fay all adults. 

“The community charge 
amounts to nothing more than 
a poll tax which will bear 
hardest on those on low 
incomes and will be extremely 
problematic to administer," 
the TUC memorandum ays. 

It ays the proposed uni- 
form business rate would 


attempt to find a basis for a 
settlement to the seven-month 
dispute. 

The newly. convened talks 
were-a^eed -last- months when 
the general secretary of the 
electricians’ union. ,Mr Eric 


Hammond, met Mr Murdoch 
in New York. 

That meeting came after an 
offer last June was rejected by 
the two printing unions, Sogat 
'82 and the National Graphi- 
cal Association. 

Mr Hammond's members 
are working in the Wapping 
plant, and the NGA has called 
on the electricians to stop or 
face expulsion from the TUC 
The debate on the NGA 
motion, which was widely 
expected to dominate and 
divide the congress, could be a 
less disruptive affair if the

withdrawn by News Inter-

could take some of the sting 
out of the TUC debate. .

One firm of trade investigators. 
Carratu International, of Cheam in 


Surrey, which specializes in anti-

vast assortment of fakes in raids this 
year across Britain and foe rest of 
Europe. 

It has recovered 750,000 bottles 
of counterfeit perfume, 80.000 
leather handbags, 5.000 pairs of

shirts with the names of popular

The company also has a further

Teachers at 
risk of pay 
cuts over 
work curbs 

By Lacy Hodges, Education Correspondent 
Teachers should have pay school day including, setting,

docked if they refuse to attend 

parent and staff meetings out- 
side school hours, if they 
refuse to keep records on then- 
pupils, and if they refuse to 
prepare lessons and mark 
school work outside school 
boms. That is (he advice legal 
experts have gryen the Inner 
Loudon Education Authority 
(Bea). 

The opinion, given by Mr 
James Goudie, QC, and Mr 
Alan Wilkie, a hamster, has 
beat sent to each of the 104 
education authorities in En- 
gland and Wales and should 
strengthen considerably the 
employers’ bands in dealing 
with future teacher disruption. 

As part of last year’s pay 
dispute teachers all over the 
country were refusing to do 
out-of-honrs duties which 
they said were voluntary. 

That meant that for a long 
period they were refusing to 
meet parents or to attend any 
meetings outride the school 
day or to keep pupil profiles. 
Some are still marntatei-ng 
that stance. 

The local authority employ- 
ers did nothing about it be- 
cause it was not dear at the 
time whether the duties were 
part of teachers' contracts. 

Now, as a result of the Scott 
judgement, whidt decided 
that teachers were contrac- 
tually required to cover for 
absent colleagues, two legal 
experts are advising that 
teachers are also contractually 
required to perform a whole 
range of duties outside the 


• marking and invigilating ex- 
aminations. 

The legal advice was sought 
tv foe Labour-controlled Ilea 
which lias not been noted for 
firm handling of teachers' 
militancy. It is understood 
that the JDea does not want to 
begin to dock pay for any 
Mure to undertake duties and 
would rather negotiate a new 
contract with teachers to cover 
those issues. 

The two lawyers say: “In the 
light of the reasoning [of the 
Scon judgement] it is dear 
that these activities do impose 
a contractual obligation. In 
our opinion, the Ilea ought 
now to make dear to the 
teachers- that it regards these 
activities as imposing a 
contractual obligation upon 
them.” 

On the question of covering 
the dasses of absent col- 
leagues, foe legal opinion 
makes dear that the Oea 
cannot henceforth ignore 
teachers’ refusal to undertake 
this duty. If it does, that could 
lead to “breaches of its fun- 
damental statutory duties’* 
and a breach of duty towards 
its ratepayers. 

That advice is the reason 
why the Ilea, and other 
authorities, are so keen to 
negotiate a deal on cover with 
foe teachers* unions on Mon- 
day. Otherwise the autumn 
term could begin with tochers 
stDl refitting to cover as a 
hangover of the pay dispute, 
and with parents much better 
equipped to bring a court case 
against foe authority.

Name ban 
angers 
editors 

By Onr Legal 
Affairs Correspondent 

The practice of prohibiting 
publication of details of court 
cases involving child abuse or 
even murder is leading to 
anonymity for adult defen- 
dants, regional newspaper edi 
tors said yesterday. 

The Guild of British News- 
paper Editors said that such 
orders have been made where 
a child has been murdered by 
a parent or other relative. 

“The result has been that 
either the adult cannot be 
named, or the relationship 
between foe defendant and 
victim must be concealed.” 

The guild said it is difficult * '"" v ‘

■Sex offences, st re et crimes 
and bmgiariesm London have 
increased in the first six 
months of this year compared 
with the corresponding period 
last year, according to the 
latest Metropolitan Police fig- 
ures (A Staff Reporter writes). 

The biggest increase has 
been in the number of 
muggings, from 4,118 to 
4,693, dosdy followed by the 
rise in sex offences, which 
indude rape, indecent assault, 
and unlawful sexual inter- 
course with under-age gals, 
buggery, bigamy and gross 
indecency with children. 

Earlier this year Sir 
Kenneth Newman, the Metro- 
politan Police Commissionei; 
told the Government that he 
needed an extra 3,800 police 
officers to keep London 
“comparatively safe”. He was 
allocated 1,200 officers to be 
phased in over the next four 
years. 

Half-yearly figures for the 
capital show that sex offences 
have risen from 1,709 to 1,865 
and Scotland Yard records a 
rise of 24,172 in serious 
offences reported to foe police. 

Assaults are up by 7 percent 
from 9,547 to 10,235 and 
burglaries show a rise of 2 per 
cent from 78^62 to 79,990: 


More than a quarter of 
prisoners released on fife B- 
cemce in 1974-79 were con- 
victed within five years of 
further offences, according to 
Home Office statistics yes- 
terday (Onr Hone Affairs 
Conrspaadeat writes). 

Most so released had orig- 
inally been convicted of mur- 
der or mansbu^h ter. 

In 1974-84, a total of 807 
people were released for the 
first time on fife licence. Abort 
80 per cent of them had been 
jaded for murder, 10 par cat 
for 

By the end of 1984, 158 of 
them had been reconvicted, 25 
for a grave offence. 

About 40 per cent of those 
reconvicted had stolen or han- 
dled stolen goods and 20 per 
cot had committed crimes of 
violence. 

Of foe 807 released, 116 had 
been recalled and 9 given a 
farther life sentence. 

The statistical bulletin says, 
however, that the recravriction 
rates for those released from 
fife sentences are much lower 
than the average for aO those 
released from castody.

protecting children from any 
ill effects of being identified. 

The guild said that editors 
have reported cases where 
“this purpose dearly win not 
be achieved,” and where the 
object of magistrates, "ap- 
pears to have been to provide 
anonymity for an adult defen- 
dant rather than a child”. 

Similar orders have been 
made in cases of baby-baiter- 
ing by a parent or near 
relative, whidi results in edi- 
tors being prevented from 
identifying adult defendants, 
“notwithstanding that foe 
child concerned is of such a 
tender age (fra example three 
weeks) that it is difficult to see 
how identification wiQ have a 
prejudicial effect on the 
child”. 

The guild has lodged a 
formal protest from Mr David

1983 foe number of people j legal secretary, to the Justices' 

Clerks’ Society, the chief legal 
advisers to magistrates. 

Mr Newell urged the soci- 
ety to draw its members' 
attention to the “undes- 
irability” of making such or- 
ders where, “dearly no 
appropriate or lawful 
’protection* can be extended 
to the child”. 

He said that in a case of 
child abuse, public interest 
may best be served Ity foe

tionship being folly reported.

The rash for whiter holiday 
bookings, up by 30 to 60 per 
cent compared with last year, 
has already started a price 
war. 

Horizon Travel the third 
biggest operator, is offering 
reductions of up to £71 oa 
some of its skfing holiday 
packages. 

Horizon is also offering an 


extra 20,000 w int er ran holi- 
days to rope with an overall 
increase in bookings, which 
are Hp by 35 per cent compared 
with the same period last year. 

Mr David Cockerton, foe 
company’s managing director, 
said yesterday that the on- 
going price war would inten- 
sify only if Thomson and 
Intasun also introduced price 
cuts oa their skiing holidays. 

More people than ever be- 
fore are deriding to escape 
Britain's winter, according to 
Thomson Travel, Britain's 
biggest tour operator, which 
expects to have a 45 pa cent 
share of winter holidays this 
year. 

Thomson, which has al- 


ready reduced some of hs 
strong holiday packages to 
Italy by £33, claimed its skung 
holidays wen significantly 
cheaper than Horizon’s. 

“Bat, if we fed our share is 
under threat, we will reduce 
prices farther. At tills stage, 
we believe ora prices are very 
competitive,” Mr Nigel 
Carpenter, marketing man- 
ager, said. 

Intasun said that it would 
not be redariag prices on 
skiing holidays at this stage. 

Because of a record demand 
by foe over-SOs for kn«r 
winter breaks, Intasun is offer- 
ing 80,000 packages this year

from £49 fra one week’s half

believes. 

Mis Zekia West-Meads, 
spokeswoman for the council 
which deals with 42,000 cases 
a year, says that while people 
complain about immorality 
and sex before marriage, many 
find there is not much sex 
afterwards. 

In a council bulletin, re- 
leased today, she says: “There 
are thousands of couples for 
whom sex after marriage is 
either infrequent, non-existent 
or a disaster area. 

“They go from wanting to 
make Jove every day. to only 
once a week, to once a month 
or even less. And they cannot 
work out what is wrong.” 

One marriage in three 
ended in divorce; but that was 
just “foe tip of the iceberg” 
because ofthe numbers living 
in secret divorce: 

Sexual problems are usually 
symptoms of relationship 
difficulties. Mrs West-Meads 
says some of the most com- 
mon contributory causes are: 

• Over-familiarity. “So many 


the father figure. The result is 
they both feel unsexy about 
each other.” 

• Forbidden fruit syndrome. 
“When it is not allowed ft is 
more attractive, but it loses 
foe desirability when it be- 
comes legaL” 

• Sex to make babies. “For 
many women, particularly, 
sex is unconsciously asso- 
ciated with having babies. It is 
a m a tt e r of procreation not 
recreation.” 

• Too-tired mother. “A tot of 
women go off lovemaking 
after having a baby because 
they are too tired. It can then 
become a habit that is bard to 
break.” 

• Workaholic husband. “Men 
can become more devoted to 
their work than their wives.” 

• Boring routine. “Leaving 
lovemaking to foe end of the 
day, in the same place and foe 
same way. is the final kiss of 
death, because then you are 
too tired or too bored to enjoy 
each other fully.”

that leaders of several other

Syria fears Gadafli might 
provoke another US raid 



The combined “Sea Winds" 
manoeuvres of the Egyptian 
Navy and a US naval battle 
group in the Mediterranean 
brought a noisy, if typical, 
appeal .from Libya . to the 
Egyptian people yesterday to 
overthrow President Mub- 
arak's Government 
Churning that the joint ex- 
ercises were “shameful ack- 
nowledgement . . . that the 
traitors and mercenaries of the 
ruling regime in Egypt have 
placed Egyptian soil and terri- 
torial waters under the ene- 
mies of this proud people” 
the official news agency, Jana, 
demanded that Egyptians 
should “wage a revolution 
a g ai n st this puppet regime". 
The statement followed three 
meetings between Presklent 
Assad of Syria and Colonel 
Gadaffi of Libya in Benghazi, 1 
during which both insisted 
that any future US attack on 
Libya would also be regarded 
as an attack on Syria. 


From Robert Fisk, Bahrain 
Mr Assad has now returned to 
- Damascus, where the Syrian 
news agency said he had also 
held discussions in Libya with 
leaders of the pro-Syrian fac- 
tion of the PTLO. Both the 
Libyans and the Syrians an- 
nounced that they gave their 
support to Colonel Abu 
Moussa's Palestinian guerrilla 
movement 

Such token political 
pressions, however, are 
likely to conceal President 
Assad's real concern: that 
Colonel Gadaffi may be 
throwing away all discretion 
and provoking another US air 
raidon Libya. 

The Syrians, who are far more 
worried about the broadening 
conffict in the Gulf than about 
America’s naval manoeuvres 
with the Egyptians, want to 
make sire that neither Libya 
nor America embroils the area 
in a new conflict when tfiejr 
led that attention in feet 
should be concentrated on the 


region of the Gulf and its long- 
standing conflict. 

Further American reports t hat 
the Pentagon Iras p lans for 
possible air raids against 
Libya, on a scale greater than 
that employed in April this 
year, when US jets bombed 
Tripoli and Benghazi, have 
been read with deep concern 
in Damascus, 
ex- . The Egyptian Air Force is also 
un- involved in the “Sea Winds" 
manoeuvres. The operations 
will combine 70 American 
aircraft from the carrier 
Forrestal with Soviet-made 
MiGs, Chinese-manufactured 
F7s and French Mirages flown 
by Egyptian pilots. 

In the days of President Sadat 
such exercises were conducted 
with .maximum pubfioty. To- 
day, when Mr Mubarak does 
not wish to emphasize such 
co-operation, both, the Egyp*. 
bans . and tire Americans are 
maintaining an almost total 
silence oh the manoeuvres.

Delhi — India's Central 
Bureau of Investigation (CBI) 
has detained two Sikhs from 
Goa. two from Pune, and two 
from Nagpur in connection 
with the assassination in Pune 
on August 10 of General Aron 
Vaidya. the former Chief of

CBI sources say that the 
assassination was carried out 
by a gang led by Harjinder 
Singh, also know as Jinda, a 
terrorist leader who escaped 
from jail in Ahmedabad. 

A man thought to be a 
leading terrorist, Sukh winder 
Singh, aged 27, has meanwhile 
been arrested at a resort in 
Panjim with a British passport 
issued in Birmingham to Shiv 
Kumar Trikha. 

Speaking with a British

residents said yesterday. 

Officials said seven guerril-

Four rebels were killed in a 
gun battle following a land- 
mine explosion in Batticaloa

Paris — In an unexpected 
visit to fire-devastated areas of 
the south of France yesterday, 
M Jacques Chirac, the Prime 
Minister, roundly condemned 
France's fire-fighting system 
as “totally deficient”, and 
promised new measures to 
help prevent future forest fires 
(Diana Geddes writes). 

M Chirac singled ont for 
particular criticism the system 
of communications used. 

“It is altogether paradoxical 
that a country which has 
developed the Rita commu- 
nications system, which has 
been adopted by the American 
Array, should have no more 
than a couple of pieces of 
string fin- ensuring its own 
communications in tackling 
. fires," he said. 

Four people have died and 
35 have been badly injured in 
horrendous fires which have 
devastated more than 21,000 
acres of brush and woodland 
and destroyed several villages 
along the Cdte d'Azur over the 
past few days.

been brought under control 
yesterday. Rain is now fore-

Nuclear 
fear hits 
Poland’s 
tourism 

From Roger Boyes 
Warsaw 

Poland has lost some £4 
million in tourist revenue since 
the Chernobyl nod ear dis- 
aster, it was officially an- 
nounced yesterday. 

Mr Jerzy Urban, tee Gov- 
ernment spokesman, said teat 
about 40,000 trips were can- 
celled v in May and June, 
though he emphasized that 
tourism was picking up again. 
Accusing the Western me- 
dia of blowing out of all 
proportion the “alleged health 
hazards of coming to eastern 
Europe", Mr Urban said some 
tourists had merely postponed 
their visit to Poland and the 
final losses could be smaller 
by the end of the year. 

About 7,000 West Germans 
had cancelled their planned 
holidays in Poland, as had 
some 3,000 Americans. 

Hungary has suffered simi- 
lar losses to its tourist trade 
from the West, although it 
managed to make up some of 
the shortfall with a huge influx 
of visitors to watch the first 
Formula One Grand Prix to be 
held in Budapest. 

A Hungarian official said: 
"The- situation is comparable 
to England, where American 
cancellations because of fears 
of terrorist attack were bal- 
anced out by a huge interest in 
the wedding of Prince 
Andrew." 

Poland has not benefited 
from any particular tourist 
attraction. 

However, the question of 
Soviet compensation for Cher- 
nobyl appears to have been 
dropped from the agenda. It 
certainly was not discussed 
during a round of Polisb- 
Soriet economic talks in Mos- 
cow and Warsaw this week. 

Chernobyl compensation 
seems to have come in the form 
of a Soviet commitment to 
buying 400 tonnes of Polish 
beef, with the real prospect of 
buying np to another 12,000 
tonnes, at current Western 
prices. 

Moscow is a big beef im- 
porter and will buy corres- 
pondingly less beef on 
Western markets. It aims to 
make up for the meat and 
other food products that Po- 
land could not sell to the West 
following the European 
Community ban on imports 
after Chernobyl. Poland es- 
timates that it lost between 
$35 and $50 million as a result 
of the food ban. - 
Poland’s nuclear prog- 
ramme is proceeding accord- 
ing to plan, Mr Urimn said, 
denying at tee same time that 
there was any intention of 
building a hnge reactor in the 
Kampinos forest outside War- 
saw. The phut until the year 
2,000 is to complete work on a 
reactor on the Baltic coast and 
build three other plants. 


Violence mars Bangladesh polling 


From Ahmed Fad 
Dhaka 

Gunmen weming badges of 
the ruling Jatiyo Party threw 
out opposition supporters and 
took over polling stations in 
Dhaka as violence yesterday 
marred by-elections to fill 
eight seats in the 330-member 
Bangladesh Parliament, ac^ 
cording to polling officials. 

Firecracker explosions kept 


voters away from several poll- 
ing stations in the capital's 
Western constituency, which 
was being fought by the In- 
terior Minister, retired Major 
General Mahmudul Hasan. 

As police stood watching, 
lorryloads of thugs entered 
voting centres. 

About 600 people were 
arrested on Monday night 
raising to more than 2,500 the 


number detained in the past 
week, opposition sources said. 

Sheikh Hasina Wazed, lead-

Spanish atom 
power plant 
closed down 

Madrid — Spain's Nuclear 
Safety Council (GSN) has 
ordered the closure of the 
Asco II nuclear power station 
until the cause of frequent 
malfunctions of safety valves 
is known, according to reports 
published here yesterday 
(Harry Debelius writes). 

The Asco II reactor, near 
the east coast city of Tarra- 
gona, has been troubled by a 
series of breakdowns of auto- 
matic elements, particularly 
valves in the steam generator 
system, since it began operat- 
ing last October. 

Officials of Fecsa, the com- 
pany that operates the station, 
said there bad been no escape 
of radioactivity, and the Min- 
istry of Industry and Energy 
reassured Spaniards that the 
malfunctions had not en- 
dangered neighbouring popu- 
lated areas. 

A Fecsa spokesman referred 
to the malfunctions as “teeth- 
ing problems" and main- 
tained that the numerous 
shut-downs were for precau- 
tionary, not emergency, 
reasons. 

Among those- called in to 
investigate the recurring mal- 
functions are two CSN inspec- 
tors and a technician from the 
American company that in- 
stalled the valves.

More rivers of blood ahead in Africa’s forgotten war 


Roberto Radtke, a 19-year- 
old German, accused of | 
starting one of the fires! 


From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

On August 26, 1966, South 
African helicopters spotted a 
guerrilla f raming camp in tee 
dry and dusty Namibian bush, 
and in the ensuing dash two of 
the guerrillas died and 27 were 

captured. So began one of the 
world’s fongest-numing and 
least reported conflicts. 

It was tee first recorded 
encounter between Smith AS - . 
rican forces and unite of tee 
People’s Liberation Army of 
Namibia (Plan), tee armed 
wing of the South West Africa 
People's Organization 
(Swapo), which has been fight- 
ing for 20 years to rid Namibia 
of South African rule. 

During that period, 10,150 
Plan guerrillas have been 
lolled, against a loss of about 
600 men oo the South African 
side, according to South Af- 
rican military headquarters in 


Pretoria. In addition, some 
1,300 Chilians have died, 
accordu^ to official figures. 

A German protectorate from 
1884 anti) 1915, when it was 
occupied- by South Africa at 
the behest of the Allied powers 
during the First World War, 
Namibia (then called South- 
West Africa) became a man- 
dated territory of the Leagne 
of Nations in 1920 and was put 
under South African 
administration. - 

After tee Second World 
War, South Africa was asked 
to place Namibia under the 
trusteeship of the United Na- 
tions, tee successor to- tee 

so^Unfike tee old 
mandate, trusteeship explic- 
itly envisaged progress tor 
wards self-government. 

Protracted litigation ensued. 
In Joly .1966, the International 
Com ofJustke at The Hague, 
dismissed, on largely technical 


grands, a claim by Ethiopia 
and Liberia, bote former mem- 
bers of the League of Nations, 
that South Africa had violated 
its mandate in Namibia by 
mtroduring apartheid. 

Angered by tee court's ver- 
dict, Swapo, which had been 
formed some years earlier as 
the Ovambo People's 
Organization, issued a famous 
declaration in Dar es Salaam- 
"We have no alternative but to 
rise in arms and bring about 
our own liberation. The su- 
preme test must be faced and , 
we must at once begin to cross 
the many rivers of blood ou our 
march to freedom.*' 

In October 1966, tee Gen-, 
eral Assembly of tee United 
Nations passed. a resolution 
te rminating (he mandate ami 
making Namibia its direct 
responsibility, and in 1971 , 
the International Court finally 
issued an advisory opinion 


supporting the UN'S position. 

Fifteen years on, after many 
more UN resolutions ami the 
failure of countless peace ini- 
tiatives, Pretoria remains in 
physical control. Many more 
rivers of blood, it seems, will 
have to be crossed before 
independence is likely to be 
achieved. 

The most important move 
by the United Nations came in 
September 1978 when the 
Security' Council passed 
Resolution 435 calling for a 
ceasefire in Namibia, mon- 
itored by' a UN peace-keeping 
force, to be followed by elec- 
tions and independence. 

Since 1982 Pretoria has said 
that it is prepared to im- 
plement Resolution 435 pro- 
vided that 30,000 Caban 
troops based in Angola, 
Namibia's northern neighbour 
and Swapo’s external sanc- 
tuary since Angola gained 


independence from Portugal in 
1975, are removed. 

In March of this year. 
President Botha proposed Au- 
gust 1 as the starting date for 
putting Resolution 435 into 
effect "provided a firm and 
satisfactory agreement could 
be reached before that date on 
the withdrawal of Cubans 
from Angola". 

Although some progress has 
been made in three-sided dis- 
cussions between South Af- 
rica, Angola and the United 
States on a - timetable for 
Cuban withdrawal, agreement 
is still fin* oft and August 1 
became just another missed 
deadline. 

Namibia enjoys a measure 
of autonomy under a South 
African-sponsored multi-ra- 
cial “government of national 
unity" which was inaugurated 
on June 17 of last year. Like a 
similar experiment in Pre- 


toria-style “self-rule" between 
1978 and 1983, it has not 
attracted much popular 
support. 

Swapo's military success 
has not been notable, but the 
war, concentrated in the fiat, 
bushy, densely-populated ar- 
eas of Ovambo and Kavango 
along Namibia's northern bor- 
der with Angola, ties down an 
estimated 50,000 troops. 

Fighting usually takes place 
during the rainy season, be- 
tween December and April, 
when water is plentiful and 
vegetation cover thicker, and 
muddy roads and cloudy 
weather hamper the South 
African war machine, while 
giving the guerrillas an edge. 

Some 318,260 square utiles 
in extent, much of it desert, 
Namibia has a population of 
only some 1,051,700, of whom 
hair are Ovambos, the base of 
Swapo's support.

though Ayatollah Kbomeni 
has said that only the over-

about a cessation of hostilities.

Senor Rojas, a US resident,

Senorita Quintana is still 
fightiug for her life. 

The prosecutor ordered die 
arrests of Senorita Quintana's 
sister, Emilia, and her hus- 
band. saying it was to ensure 
their appearance when cited. 
The couple has already tes-

China ‘largest supplier 
of weapons to Iran 9 

From Michael Binyon, Washington ' 

China has become the Iarg- Winston Lord, the US Ambas- 
of weapons to sador in Pelting. 


supplier 

US officials say. During 


est 
Iran, 

the past six months it has 
delivered at least $300 million 
(plOO million) worth of mis- 
siles and other military 
equipment 

The Reagan Administration 
is deeply concerned about this 
development, which it be- 
lieves may decisively upset 
the balance in the Gulf War. 
Washington has been trying to 
persuade other governments 
not to give any arms to Iran, 
which it constantly accuses of 
intransigence and refusing to 
agree to a negotiated settle- 
mem with Iraq. 

The Chinese are also re- 
ported to be preparing deliv- 
ery of heavy tanks, a Chinese 
version of the MiG21 fighter 
and rocket launchers. The 
Washington Post ' said yes- 
terday. However, Peking. has 
denied any such arms sales, 
despite representations by Mr 


China has informally told 
US officials that any arms it 
gives to Iran are justified 
because Tehran is using the 
weapons to aid the anti-Soviet j 
guerrillas in Afghanistan. 
Washington does net accept 
this argument because of the | 
type of heavy weaponry 
involved. 

The six-year Gulf War win 
be among the topics discussed 
here today between senior US 
and Soviet officials, who are 
meeting to make preparations 
for the possible US-Soviet 
summit this year. 

Mn Michael Aramacost, 
Under-Secretary of State for 
Political Affairs, is meeting

and Central America. 


Briton in 
court over 
‘coca tea 9 

New York (Reuter) — A 
British computer engineer 
charged with possession of a 
controlled substance --coca 
leaves, from which cocaine is 
made — thought he was taking 
Peruvian tea home, a court 
was told yesterday. 

Mr Ashwani KorpaL aged 
27, of Manchester, was ar- 
rested at Kennedy Airport on 
Sunday when he arrived on a 
flight from Peru, with the 
intention of continuing to 
England. 

According to the authori- 
ties, he declared on an im- 
migration form that he was 
curving plant material, which 
he further described as tea 
leaves. Asked what kind of 
tea. he said coca tea, the court 
was told. 

Under New York law, the 
possession of untreated coca 
leaves carries a mandatory 
prison term of at least three 
yean. 

In an unusual move, how- 
ever, the prosecutor joined Mr 
Korpal's defence m asking 
that lie be freed without ban 
pending action by a grand 
jury, which' will deride 
whether he should be pros- 
ecuted and, if sot, on what 
charges. 


American 
‘helped In 
Iraq raid 9 

Tehran (Renter) — Mr Jon 
Pattis, an American detained 
fin more than a month cm 
espionage charges, provided 
information to help an Iraqi 
attack on an Iranian tele- 
communications centre, ac- 
cording to Tehran Radio. 

It said yesterday that the 
Information Minister, Mr 
Muhammad Muhammadi 
Reyshahri, said that Mr Pattis, 
aged 49, had used an Italian 
passport to work in Iran's 
main satellite ground station 
at Assadabad and had been in 
contact with the CIA. 

“The evidence shows that 
he had a hand in relaying 
information to Iraq via flu 
CIA for bombarding Assad- 
abad installations,” Mr Rey- 
shahri said. 

Iraqi jets attacked Assad- 
abad m June and July, killing 
two workers and disrupting

Singapore share prices dip as judge passes sentence 

Malaysian politician 
jailed for two years 
over company collapse 


Singapore (Reuter) — Tan 
Koon Swan, the head of the 
Malaysian Chinese Associ- 
ation (MCA), which makes up 
a huge part of the country’s 
- ruling National Front co- 
alition, was jailed yesterday 
for two years over the collapse 
of Pan-Electric Industries, a 
leading Singapore company. 

Share prices in Singapore 
dipped on news of the sen- 
tence, and brokers Mamed the 
selling on fears of possible 
political repercussions. 

Mr Tan appeared shocked 
by the sentence and rushed 
into the arms of Miss Penny 
Chang, his constant compan- 
ion, as party supporters and 
journalists crowded around 
them in the courtroom. 

His lawyer said a fresh 
appeal would be lodged in the 
Court of Criminal Appeal. 

Mr Tan, who pleaded guilty 
on Monday to abetting a 
criminal breach of trust, was 
also fined about £166.000. 

His immediate - appeal 
against the sentence was re- 
jected by the High Court, but a 
lower court later acquitted and 
discharged him on 14 other 
counts relating to the collapse 
of Pan-Electric Industries. 

Mr Tan had a substantial 
holding in the marine and 
industrial company that went 
into receivership in Novem- 
ber, owing about £122 million. 
He was arrested in Singapore 
in January and bad been free 
on bail of £12.7 milli on. 


Mr Justice Lai Kew Chai 
said in passing sentence: 
“Public interest plainly re- 
quires that the accused should 
receive punishment which not 
only befits the crime but 
which should act as a deter- 
rent to other persons who may 
be similarly disposed. 

“The offence . . . struck at 
the very heart of the integrity, 
reputation and confidence of 
Singapore as a commercial 
city and financial centre.” 

The prosecution told the 
High Court that Mr Tan used 
a series of complicated share 
deals to gain control of Pan- 
Electric and artificially raise 
its share prices. 

He started his working life 
by selling pork dumplings. 
Ambition, hard work and a 
willingness to take risks even- 
tually paid off and he became 
one of Malaysia's richest men. 
His rags-to-riches story took 
him to Parliament, and in 
November 198S propelled 
him into the highest financial 
and political circles as head of 
the MCA. 

The eldest of seven chil- 
dren, Mr Tan sold dumplings 
with his lather before becom- 
ing a clerk at the electricity 
board. He then moved to 
Malaysia's taxation office be- 
fore becoming a tax adviser to 
the Esso oil company. Hefater 
helped to establish a gambling 
casino overlooking Kuala 
Lumpur. 

In 1975 he took control of 


Supreme Corporation, an in- 
active mining company, and 
through shrewd stock market 
deals made it a leading 
conglomerate. 

After studying at the Har- 
vard Business School in the 
US he returned to continue 
building his business empire, 
drawing into his network 
more Malaysian companies, a 
Singapore hold and then Pan- 
Eleclnc Industries, 

Some share buying was 
funded by forward contracts 
but demands on Mr Tan’s 
time were mounting and it 
became increasingly difficult 
to keep track of commitments, 
his lawyer said. 

Then came a political crisis 
within the MCA as factions 
fought each other for control. 
Mr Tan emerged as its leader. 

His lawyer told the court: 
“The crisis had enormous 
ramifications on the political 
stability of Malaysia and this 
forced the accused to spend 
bis entire time in efforts to 
resolve this crisis.” 

The scramble to find money 
at the last minute led him to 
abet a criminal breach of trust 
by a Pan-Electric director who 
misused money entrusted to 
him by shareholders. 

The solution created an- 
other web of future contracts 
that went sour as share prices 
declined, leading to panic 
among stockbrokers and a 
three-day closure of the stock 
market.

Chun shuffles Cabinet 
after opposition attack 


Seoul (Reuter) — President 
Chun Doo Hwan of South 
Korea reshuffled his Cabinet 
yesterday, following oppo- 
sition demands that all min- 
isters should resign for what 
were called misrule and lack of 
democracy. 

He retained the Prime Min- 
ister, Mr Lho Shin Yong and 
the Deputy Premier, Mr Kim 
Mahn Je, the country’s chief 
economic planner, but re- 
placed 10 ministers in the 22- 
member Cabinet. 

A presidential spokesman 
said the move would help 
bring about an “historical 
turning-point” in the 
country’s political develop- 
ment and improve the 
management of stale affairs. 

The Ambassador to the 
United Nations, Mr Choi 
Kwang Soo, replaced Mr Lee 
Won Kyung as Foreign Min- 
ister and the former Finance 
Minister, Mr Rha Woong Bae, 
chief policy-maker of Mr 
Chun's ruling Democratic Jus- 


tice Party, succeeded Mr Kum 
Jin Ho as Trade Minister. 

The main opposition New 
Korea Democratic Party has 
accused the Government of 
giving in to US trade pressure, 
which it says has kindled 
strong anti-American feelings 
among South Koreans. 

Other important changes 
included the replacement of 
the Interior Minister and chief 
of the police force, Mr Chung 
Suk Mo with the former Vice- j 
Interior Minister, Mr Kim 
Chong Hoh. 

The Information Minister, 
Mr Lee Wong Hong was 
succeeded by Mr Lee Woong 
Hee, head of the private 
Munhwa Broadcasting 
Corporation. 

The NKDP had earlier de- 
manded the dismisals of Mr 
Chung and Mr Lee Wong 
Hong following allegations 
that police hadtortured dis- 
sidents and that Mr Lee bad 
interfered with the freedom of 
the press. 


Getting a 
taste of 
Chinese 

Hong Knag (Reuter) — The 
world's leading chefs are here 
to taste the best of Chinese 
cookery and to deride whether 

it is Him nnn 1 snrklmg pig Of 

shark's fin soup which makes 
the cuisine so popular. 

Twenty-six members of Le 
Clnb des Chefs des Chefs, 
which brings together cooks 
for royalty, beads of state and 
billionaires, are in the colony 
to sample Chinese cuisine 
daring their annual reunion. 

The dub's membership in- 
cludes Henry Haller, chef de 
cuisine at the White House, 
Joel Normand, chief chef at 
the Elysee Palace, and Gra- 
ham Newboold, chef to the 
Prince of Wales. 

G files Bragard, the clnb 
secretary-general, denied that 
the reunion would simply be a 
gastronomic orgy. “Chinese 
cookery has a tong history. We 
can learn from it” be said. 


Ministers show their worth 


Japanese ministers had 
their assets announced on 
television news last night 

The veterans are used to 
this exposure, which comes 
with each new Cabinet, but for 
the neuroma? it can be a bit 
of a shock. 

This is dearly the way the 
Minister of International 
Trade and Industry, Mr 
Hajime Tamura, felt when he 
found that be topped the latest 
list with assets of 2.027 billion 
yen (£8.8 million). 

“If I'm top of the list it 
shows that there aren't many 
wealthy men in the Cabinet,” 
he said without conviction. 
His most valuable holding is 
his home on a 330 sq m site in 


From David Watts, Tokyo 
Tokyo, worth 1.2 billion yen 
(£5.2 million). 

The new Finance Minister, 
Mr Kiichi Miyazawa. also felt 
he had a bit of explaining to do 
when the media confronted 
him with assets of 1.048 - 
billion yen (£4.55 million). 
“Assets have to be disposable 
to be m eaning ful,” said the 
abashed man of means. “The 
big item is my home in 
Harajuku bnt 1 can't dispose 
ofthaL” 

What he did not mention, 
but the survey disclosed, is 
that he has another house in 
his constituency and villas in 
the mountain resort of 
Karuizawa and the hot-spring 
town of Alarm. 

The object of these discio- 


The strain in relations be- 
tween Australia and the 
United States was the subject 
of talks between' Mr Bob 
Hawke, the Prime Minister, 
and a Washington envoy yes- 
terday, after Mr Hawke had 
delivered his heaviest broad- 
side yet against US trade 
subsidies. 

Mr Hawke’s meeting with 
Senator Richard Lugar, chair- 
man of the Senate foreign 
relations co m mittee, followed 
(he opening session in Cairns, 
Queensland, of a 14-nation 
conference of Fair Traders in 
Agriculture. 

In a studied intensification 
of bis critirism of US and EEC 
sobrieties, which are damaging 
foe represented nations, Mr 
Hawke told the conference 
that “it sticks in the millets” of 
Australians that they had 
twice fought in de f mrr of 
Europe and now found them- 
selves crushed In a trade war 
between old allies. 

US integrity had been a 
atty of the conflict, he 
said. Washington had com- 
promised its principles for 
short-term political gain in 
extending sales of subsidized 
wheat to the Soviet Union, one 
of Australia’s biggest markets. 

Senator Lugar is also here 
to d iscus s the Anzns defence 

alliance, which has been effec- 
tively reduced to a bilateral 
pact, with New Zealand 
excluded. 

He said his talks with Mr 


Hawke had been extensive and 
lively, and described the Prime 
Minister’s earlier renafos as 
emotional — as be, ton, had 
been when speaking to Ameri- 
can producers. 

There was w certainty that 
the subsidized US wheat safes 
would go ahead, he safiL 
Moscow was hr no hurry to 
clinch a deal. 

However, the damage to 
Australian formers Jus: al- 
ready been extensive. Agri- 
cnltural analysts here say that 
the wheat price has folktt from 
$130 (£86) to $102 a tonne, 
and will probably go down to 
$85 a tonne. 

That will mean losses, 
against last year’s price, of 
$Aus480 mflnon (£192 mo- 
tion) to around 55,000 local 
producers, in addition to gov- 
ernment costs of SAowOO 
mfition. 

The Australian remarks 
were echoed at foe conference 
yesterday by speakers from 
New Zealand, Argentina, Bra- 
zil, the Philippines ; and 
Malaysia. 

One objective of the con- 
ference is to forge a united 
approach to a new round of 
Gate talks next month. 

Mr John Kerin, Canberra’s 
Primary Industry: Minister, 
said US and EEC policies 
woe fostering instability in 
frinedly nations. Other min- 
isters spoke of the Gaft talks 
as befog “perhaps the last 
chance” to find a solution. 


sures is to ensure tha t min- 
isters do not enrich them- 
selves inordinately while in 
office. Mr Yasuhiro Naka- 
sone, the Prime Minister, does 
not seem to be doing so: since 
his assets were last disdosed 
late last year l he has bought 
some 2% million yen worth oF | 
national bonds for total de- 
clared assets of about 550 
million yen (£2.4 million). 

But, like all such exercises, 
the survey shows only part of 
the picture. Ministers do not 
have to disdose their holdings 
in companies or relatives' 
holdings. 

It works both ways: more 
than one Hifnistw had to 
admit shamefacedly that his 
liabilities exceeded his assets. 


China coal export drive 

P eking — China hopes to 
boost its coal exports to 
Europe during its current five- 
year development plan (1986- 
i 990), officials of foe National 
Coal Import and . Export 
Corporation - said yesterday 
(Robert Grieves writes). 

In the first seven months of 
this year China exported 5.7 
million tons of coal, and 
should boost that level to 10 
million tons by foe end of the 
year. • 

The mam importers of Chi- 
nese coal include Japan, 

North Korea, France, Bel- 


gium, The Netherlands, much 
of South-East Asia and Hong 
Kong. 

Mr Huang Shaochen, a 
manager of foe National Coal 
Import and Export Corpora- 
tion, told the China Daily 
that because many nations 
would no longer be importing 
coal from South Africa, China 
could boost its coal exports. 

He said that China would 
like to see its exports rise to 30 
million tons by 1990. Coal 
exports to Europe, which now 
constitute 10 per cent of 
China's total coal exports, 
could rise “by a big margin’’. 


Aquino launches appeal to foreign investors 


Singapore (Reuter) — Presi- 
dent Aquino said here yes- 
terday that the Philippines 
had greater financial leeway to 
stimulate its economy and was 
on the road to recovery. 

In a speech to business 
leaders after she arrived in 
Singapore from Jakarta; Mrs 
Aquino said: “We look for- 
ward to relief this year from 
the negative GNP growth 
rates ofj984 and 1985. 

“The greater fiscal and 
monetary leeway that we shall 


enjoy allows my Government 
to construct rural public works 
which will assist agriculture 
and stimulate the economy at 
its grassroots,” she said. 

The Philippine President 
said negotiations with com- 
mercial banks to lighten foe 
country's debt burden would 
begin next month. 

She invited Singapore 
businessmen to take advan- 
tage of investment opportu- 
nities in foe Philippines, 
particularly in foe privatiza- 


tion of government-owned 
and controlled corporations. 

Filipino officials ac- 
companying Mrs Aquino de- 
scribed her luncheon speech to 
the Singapore Federation of 
Chambers of Commerce and' 
Industry as a- major policy 
address. 

Mr Lim Kee Ming, Presi- 
dent of foe federation, assured 
Mrs Aqnino of its support and 
said a high-level trade mission 
would visit Manila soon. 

After her luncheon speech. 


Mrs Aquino hdd talks with 
Mr Lee Kuan Yew t the 
Singaporean Prime Minister. 

After a day of detailed talks 
between foe two Presidents,

Divorce costs too remote 


Pritchard v J. H. Cobden Ltd 
and Another 

Before Lord Justice O'Connor. 
Lord Justice Croom-Johnson 
and Sir Roger Ormrod 
[Judgment given July 30] 

Any alteration of the 
plaintiffs financial position as a 
result of divorce or breakdown 
of marriage should be wholly 
disregarded in assessing the sum 
recoverable from a defendant in 
an action Tor damages for per- 
sonal injuries, even if the di- 
vorce had resulted from the 
injuries caused to the plaintiff 
by the defendant’s negligence. 

The Court of Appeal so held, 
reducing by £53,000 the sum 
awarded by Mr Justice Swinton 
Thomas on September 26 1986, 
to the plaintiff Vivian John 
Pritchard suing by his guardian 
ad litem, Philip James Pritch- 
ard, in respect of personal 
injuries caused by the defen- 
dants, J. H. Cobden Ltd and 
Malcolm Cyril Parrott. 

Mr Piers Ashworth, QC and 
Mr Benjamin Browne for foe 
defendants: Mr William 
Crowtber. QC and Miss Rosa- 
lind Foster for the plaintiff 

LORD JUSTICE 

O'CONNOR and LORD JUS- 
TICE CROOM-JOHNSON, in 
a joint judgment, said that in 
June 1976 the plaintiff who was 
not quite 30 years old and was 
married with one child, sus- 
tained serious injuries in a 
motor collision with the 
defendant's vehicle. 

He had been employed by the 
Ministry of Defence but as a 
result of his injuries, including 
brain damage, he was' un- 
employable. 

The case did not come on for 
Inal until September 1985 by 
which time much had hap- 
pened. In January 1977 his wife 
gave birth to twfns. In Decem- 
ber 1984 the decree nisi was 
pronounced on his wife's pe- 
tition for divorce. 

The plaintiff alleged that his 
marriage had broken down as a 
result of his injuries and claimed 
as a head of damage any extra 
expense he might incur as a 
result of the divorce. 

In order to accommodate foe 
unusual claim, the wife's claim 
for financial relief in the matri- 
monial proceedings was ordered 
to be heard by the same judge 
who heard the personal injury 
case. 

After awarding the plaintiff a 
sum of £381. 126 under the usual 
heads, the judge imposed a 
“dean break" order in foe 
matrimonial proceedings. 

The plaintiff was to move out 
of the matrimonial home into 


another house which bad been 
bought for him out of the 
interim payment made by the 
defendants. 

The judge then derided that 
as a result of the divorce the 
plaintiff had suffered da m a g e 
which he assessed at £53,000 
and he added t hat to the sum 
already awarded, making the 
defendants liable in the sum of 
£434.126. 

The defendants challenged 
the assessment of damages un- 
der some of the usual heads and 
the whole of the assessment 
flowing from the divorce. 

Their Lordships considered 
and reduced the judge's award 
of damages under the heads of 
loss of earnings, pain, suffering 
and loss of amenity, and cost of 
care and attention. 

On behalf of the plaintiff it 
was submitted that once it was 
established that the divorce was 
proved to have been caused by 
the injuries and that it was a 
foreseeable consequence of 
them, the financial provision 
made for the wife and children 
were a loss to foe plaintiff for 
which the tortfeasor must re- 
imburse him. 

The defendants conceded that 
the injuries caused the divorce 
at least in part and that it was 
foreseeable as a possible con- 
sequence. 

However, foe defendants 
submitted that in matrimonial 
proceedings foe court had to 
exercise its discretion in ac- 
cordance with stipulated guide- 
lines and to redistribute foe 
finances and property of both 
spouses by making orders for 
financial provision and property 


years after the accident and a 
year after the divorce petition 
was filed. 

That would not always be so. 
If the Queen’s Bench action 
came on first the judge would 
find himself trying to foresee 
what a Family Division judge 
might deride several years later, 
ifataU. 

He would require evidence of 
the finances of the other spouse, 
the relationship of the parties, 
an a s sessm e nt of their charac- 
ters and financial * needs, the 
chances that they might separate 
or divorce, and what those 
chances would have been even if 
there had been no injury to the 
plaintiff 

If Family Division proceed- 
ings did come on some time 
later, all that evidence might 
turn out to be wrong or inappro- 
priate. 

Owing to the special nature of 
the matrimonial proceedings, a 
head of damages based upon 
them was too remote. On the 
ground of policy, it was also 
undesirable to brihg into foe 


personal injury' litigation foe 
considerations which were rele- 
vant to matrimonial relief 
‘ Their Lordships had also read 
the judgment of Sir Roger 
Ormrod and agreed with ft. 

SIR ROGER ORMROD said 
that in Jones v Jones ([1985] QB 
704) where damages were 
awarded for the financial loss 
sustained in the dissolution of a 
marriage, the defendants con-' 
ceded that such damages were 
recoverable, subject to the sub- 
mission that as a matter of 
public policy it should not be 
permitted because of the “flood- 
gates" argument 

The Court of Appeal rejected 
that argument It was dear that 
none of the arguments put 
forward by the present defen- 
dants were put in Jones v Jones. 

Therefore the court was not 
bound to bold as a matter of. 
principle that damages were 
recoverable under that head.

The mechanism for valuation of 
a company members shares 


In re a Company (No 004377 
of 1986) 

Before Mr Justice Hoffmann 
[Judgment given July 29] 1 

Where a company’s articles 
provided a method for 
determining the fair value of a 
party’s shares, a member seek- 
ing to sell his shares upon a 
breakdown of relations should 
not ordinarily be entitled to 
complain of unfair-conduct if be 
had made no attempt to use the 
machinery there provided. 

In the normal case of a 
breakdown of a corporate quasi- 
partnership there should not 
ordinarily be any “legitimate 
expectation” that a member 
wishing to have his shares 
purchased should be entitled to 
have his shares valued by foe 
court rather than the auditors. 

Mr Justice Hoffmann so held 
in the Chancery Division on an 
application to strike out a 
petition for relief under section 
459 of foe Companies Act 1985. 


Mr Simon Mortimore for the 
respondents Mr Leslie G. 

Kosmin for the petitioner. 

MR. JUSTICE HOFFMANN 
said the petitioner's company, 
with its electronic engineering 
business, having gone into 
receivership, was taken over by 
a new company in which the 
petitioner held 39 shares and T, 
a business associate, and bur 
fiunily, 61. 

The petition alleged that foe 
understanding was that the pe- 
titioner would be the fall-time 
managing director, and T non- 
executive chairman and finan- 
cial director. The money to 
enable the new company to be 
acquired from the ‘receiver was 
provided byT or by companies 
be controlled. 

The petition said co n fl i cts 
arose almost from the start, 
because T interfered in -dayto- 
day managem ent. 

The articles provided pre- 
emption machinery in common 


form, but also provided that a 
member who had been- an 
employee or director foouki be 
bound to give a transfer notice 
in respect ofaD his shares within 
14 days of his rearing to be an 
employee or d ire c to r, for any 
reason including incapacity or 
breach of contract, but exclud- 
ing wrongful dismissal. The 
price, in default of agreement, 
was to be fixed by the auditin'. 

In 1983 the petitioner being 
in personal financial difficulties 
sold nine ofhis shares to Tor his 
associates, for £5,000 each, not 
under the artides but by directly 
negotiated sale. -

was independent of any claim 
which the plaintiff might have 
for loss or damage directly 
attributable to his injuries. 

Thai submission was right 
and was supported also on foe 
ground of policy. The hearings 
in foe Queen's Bench Division 
and the Family Division

fixed to take place together nine 


[Judgment given July 10] 

To allow a member slate in 
which a company carried on its 
business to neat that company 
in a different manner solely 
because its registered office was 
situated in another member 
state would render article 58 of 
foe EEC Treaty nugatory. 

In April 1981 Slendcrose Ltd 
was formed in accordance with 
English law with its registered 
office in London. Mr Segers and 
bis wife each took up half of the 
shares of that company and Mr 
Segers was appointed its 
director. 

All the commercial activities 
of Slenderose were carried out 
by its subsidiary, Free Promo- 
tion International, which op- 
erated solely in The 
Netherlands. . 

In July 1981 Mr Segere ap- 
plied to the defendant (the 
board of the unde association 


for banking,- insurance, the 
wholesale trade and . the free 
professions) for sideness insur- 
ance benefits. That application 
was rejected on foe basis that he 
had not worked for Slenderose 
under a contract of 
employment 

An action against that de- 
cision having been dismissed by 
the court of first instance, Mr 
Segers appealed to foe Ceatrale 
Raad van Beroep (Court of Last 
Instance in Social Security Mat- 
ters! which referred foe matter 
to the Court of Justice of the 
European Communities for a 
preliminary ruling. 

In its judgment foe European 
Court of justice hdd: 

It was to be bo me in mind 
that article 52 of the EEC Treaty 
was one of foe fundamental 
provisions of the Community 
and that it had been directly 
applicable in the member states 
since the end of the transitional 
period. 

The present question arose 
out of a situation where the 
refusal to grant benefit was 
based not upon the nationality 
of the director but on the 
location of the registered office 
of the company which he 
managed. t 

However, in a c cordance with 
article 58 of foe Treaty, for 


companies formed in ac- 
cordance with the law of the 
member state whose registered 
office was within the Commu- 
nity, freedom of establishment 
included the right to exercise 
their activities in another mem- 
ber state through an agency, 
branch or subsidiary. 

In that regard, it was to be 
observed that a company 
formed in accordance with foe 
law of one member state and 
which carried out its activities - 
through an agency, branch or 
subsidiary in another member 
state could not be deprived of 
foe benefit of that rule. 

To allow the member state In 
which foe activities were carried 
out freely to apply to such a 
company different treatment by 
reason only of the feet that the 
registered office of a company 
was situated in another member 
state would deprive article 58 of 
any effect. 

It was common ground that 
the right to reimbursement of 

medical expenses was an in-, 
dividual one and not that of a ’ 
company. However the require- 
ment that a company formed in 
accordance with the law of 
another member state be treated 
in the same way as national 
companies implied the right of 
foe staff of that company rejoin

Although foe prevention of

appro priate measure in *f»* 

On those grounds, the court 
(Second Chamber) ruled: 

Artides 52 and 58 of foe EEC 
Treaty were to be interpreted as 
prohibiting the competent 
authorities of a member state 
from excluding foe director of a 
company from the benefit of a 
national scheme of sickness 
insurance payments solely on 
the ground that the company in 
question was formed in ac- 
cordance with the law of another 
member state, where it also had 
its registered office, even though 
it did not conduct any commer- 
cial activity there. 


liability in full settlement. 

In July 1985 he was removed 
as a director, and bad since been 
excluded from any role in the 
management of foe company. 

In March 1986 the company’s 
solicitors, drawing attention to 
the articles, alleged that even if 
he had- been wrongfiilly dis- 
missed, as be alleged, and 
therefore did not cease to bean 
employee as defined in the 
amdes, he had undoubtedly 
ceased to be a director, and an 
offer of £900 a foam was made 
to him. The offer was rejected 
and the petitioner denied that be 
was obliged to transfer his 
shares. 

His Lordship said there was 
no allegation m the petition of 
any wrongful conduct by foe 
board or the majority sharehold- 
ers in foe running of foe 
company, there was no sugges- 
tion that they were paying 
themselves excessive salaries,

panies or doing any of the things 
frequently alleged as unfairly

U was. nevertheless alleged 


that he became a shareholder on 
the basis of a fcgjtinfiue expecta- 
tion of long-term participation 
in the management of the 
company. The fact ofhis being 
excluded was said to constitute 
conduct unfairly prejudicial to 
his interests. 

His Lordship disagreed, say- 
. ing that it seemed to him that 
the articles had made pro virion 
in advance for what was to. 
happen if there was a break- 
down in relations: the maj or i ty 
shareholders were to have a 
statutory power to remove a 
minority shareholder as a direc- 
tor, and thereafter were entitled 
to buy his shares ax a fair value. 

If there was a breakdown 
there was unlikely to be any 
doubt over who would have to' 
leave. The only real issue, was 
the price of the shares. 

His Lordship said the 
presentation of a petition was a 
powerful negotiating tactic: foe 
prapect of a lengthy contested 
petition, sometimes brought by 
a legally aided plaintiff was a 
strong inducement ' to the 
respondents to pay the pe- ■ 
uuonerthe price he ask ed. Legal 
costs were often crip pling . 

In those circumstances if the 

articles provided a method for 
determining a fair value for a 
party's shares a member seeking 
to sell them on a breakdown of 
rotations should not ordinuiW 
be entitled to complain of unfair 
conduct if be had made no 
attempt to use foe machinery

expectation that a member 
wishing to have his shares

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY AUGUST 27 1986 


SPECTRUM 


Every measured breath you 


About 80,000 drivers 
failed breath tests 
last year. The crew 
of Tango 402 took 
William Greaves on 
on night patrol in 
Brighton to see how 
they handle drinkers 

Saturday night in Brighton, a gang 
of drunken youths marauding 
down the seafront, 200 deck-chairs 
ablaze on the beach. At 1 0pm 
police constables Glyn Vaughan 
and Roger Brown left their head- 
quarters in John Street and 
climbed into patrol car Tango 
Four-Zero-Two for the start of 
their eight-hour shift. The weather 
was warm and dry — tailor-made 
for summer madness. 

The two men have had-six years 
together as a team, and they knew 
exactly what to expect- The mob on 
the waterfront was not their pi- 
geon. The roads in and around 
Brighton were their stamping 
ground, and drunken drivers their 
priority. 

“We just think of them as 
potential killers", said Brown. “By 
catching them before they catch 
someone else, we're doing every- 
one a favour." 

Tonight, however, the early 
batch of over-the-limit drivers got 
a reprieve. Britain's police forces 
cannot afford the manpower for 
single-purpose breath test patrols 
except at Christmas, and within 
two minutes one of the three radio 
sets mounted on the Ford 
Granada's technology-laden dash- 
board came urgently to life. "Tango 
402, Tavistock Down, some kind 


mttitt 



of a fight . . "OK, -we'll take a 
look." 

We took the first two sets of 
bollards and a mini-roundabout on 
the right crossed the traffic lights 
on red, and within moments pulled 
into Tavistock Down. Brown was 
out of the car before it had stopped 
rolling and Vaughan followed a 
second later. Both men put their 
hats on as they ran. 

Five minutes later Vaughan was 
back. “Domestic squabble", he 
said. "Roger will be here in a 
minute, he's just handing out some 
friendly advice.” 

But Brown was looking far from 
friendly when he returned- “Thir- 
teen-year-old girl with a 38-year- 
old man in there” he said "He’s 
lucky it wasn’t my daughter. I think 
we'd better go and have a word 
with her mother, see if she knows 
where her little girl spends her 
lime." 

By the lime that mission was 
completed - "she was a pretty 
helpless sort well get a social 
worker round in the morning" — it 
was 11.30pm, the pubs had emp- 
tied and we pulled up against the 
right-hand kerb of busy Preston 
Road. Behind us was a row of 
parked cars and the gap in front 
was ideal for a quick getaway. The 
blue lamp on the roof was brightly 


reflected in a shop window. 

“We're not trying to be sneaky", 
said Brown. “and we don't hang 
around pub car parks because it's 
not our job todtarass people on an 
innocent night out We are pretty 
obvious here and if motorists see 
us and slow down, we've achieved 
our purpose. It’s the ones who race 
away from the lights and don't see 
us that we're after." 

. It was a stretch of road with a 

A quarter of a million 
motorists in England and Wales 
were subjected to roadside or 
hospital breath tests last year - 
the hi gh est figure ever — and 
aboot80,0<K) gave positive 
readings. But latest statistics 
suggest that a combination of 
publicity and police vigilance 
is getting the "don't drink and 
drive" message across: fewer 
than a third of all motorists 
asked to take the test in 1985 
proved to be over die limit, 
compared with more than half 
10 years ago. 

However, figures recently 
released by the Home Office 
reveal enormous regional 


30mph limit and the two police- 
men picked off the speeds of each 
vehicle with expert judgement 
“Forty ... 42 . . . he’s getting on 
for 50. When we go after them we 
don't usually find we're more than 
a couple of miles an hour out" 
Two motor cycles roared by, their 
exhausts crackling, and the Gra- 
nada pulled smoothly away, with- 
out the slightest glance passing 
between the two front seats. 


disparities in testing. By far the 
greatest number of tests last 
year were carried oat by the - 
Metropolitan Police (96 per 
day on average) and 
Nottinghamshire (70 per day); 
at the other end of the scale, the 
City of London Police 
conducted only two breath tests 
per day. But while 45 per cent 
of all tested drivers in the Met 
area gave positive readings, in 
Nottinghamshire more than nine 
tests out of 10 proved 
negative. According to the Royal 
Society for the Prevention of 
Accidents, two out of every three 
car drivers killed at night are 
over the limit. 


The year of the fedora 


As a chase it was a non-starter. 
Both bikes had pillion passengers 
and the quartet noticed nothing 
until the police car's lights brought 
them to the kerb three-quarters of a 
mile up the road. 

Breath tests on the drivers 
proved negative and they were told 
that they would be reported for 
exceeding the speed limit. As 
details were being taken, one of the 
passengers started hurting abuse. 
No-one took much notice and 
Brown said gently: "rd tell your 
friend to shut up if 1 were you, 1 
don't think he's on your side." 

Back in the car, a radio message 
requested help for another police 
car. At the rendezvous point, a 
burly policeman was standing with 
a rather sheepish-looking young 
motorcyclist. “I’ve not got a breath 
pack, can I borrow youre?” he said. 

The test was positive, the tell-tale 
light showing dearly in the dark- 
ness. Unpro testing, the rider got 
into the other car. “What was he 
doing?" asked Vaughan. "Driving 
like a prat", came the suednet 
reply. 

Now well after midnight and 
with scores of arrests on the 
seafront jamming the radio, it was 
time to take a drive round the 
parish. On the edge of the Downs 
en route for Lewes, the roads were 




Raymond Chandler’s "mean 
streets" of Los Angeles are 
being rather kinder at present 
to the author's memory, estate 
and most of all to his confus- 
ing detective Philip Marlowe, 
the worldly but .sentimental 
knight in a snap-brimmed 
fedora, who travelled heavy- 
wrapped in gabardine carrying 
a big gun and a conscience. 

The fascination with 
Chandler’s work and the mys- 
tique which has surrounded 
the film, television, radio and 
literary impersonations of 
Marlowe has trickled along for 
nearly five decades. But 1986 
is turning into a waterfall year. 

Robert Redford certainly 
hopes the interest will con- 
tinue to grow when he dons 
Marlowe's mantle and begins 
filming in California's Palm 
Springs next month. Redford 
is more of the screen image — 
"passably good looking" - 
that Chandler had of bis 
creation. 

He is the star of Springs. 
based on an unfinished Chan- 
dler novel (only 12 pages 
called The Poodle Springs 
Storf) by screenwriter Roger 
Towne. whose brother Robert 
wrote Chinatown. 


Raymond Chandler’s tough, evocative 
writing is having a vintage spell in 
films, television and the theatre 


Atlantic Pictures is enthu- 
siastic about Flashback by 
writer Ken Nunn (his first 
novel Tapping The Source was 
a vivid mirror of 1980s 
California) which brings Mar- 
lowe out of retirement and 
confronted by more than 
hoodlums in Plymouth 
convertibles and the whiff of 
jasmine and mystery around 
Pasadena Mansions. 

The Texan actor Powers 
Boothe — “Marlowe is slightly 
over six feet tall with dark 
brown hair and brown eyes”, 
said Chandler— is walking the , 
“mean streets” on American 
cable television. These TV 
shows began when British 
producer David Wickes con- 
vinced the Chandler estate to 
part with the rights to some 
short stories and London 
Weekend Television became 
involved. 

There is also much aca- 
demic interest in Chandler, 
who died in 1959. At the 


University of California at 
Lbs Angeles (UCLA) library, 
an exhibition on until the end 
of September has 40 location 
photographs of dramatic mo- 
ments from The Big Sleep, 
Chandler's first novel, on 
display. The Arion Press, a 
San Francisco publishing 
house, is offering a limited 
edition of The Big Sleep 
featuring these photographs, 
though it is for the real 
enthusiast at S425 (nearly 
£300) a copy. 

The publishing company 
Random House has issued the 
Chandler novels as pan of its 
“audiobooks" division, while 
publisher Aaron Blake offers 
the more energetic diversion 
in The Raymond Chandler 
Mystery Map of Los Angeles, 
by which landmarks you can 
just about trail Chandler's 
convoluted plots.

approved psychos like James 
Bond and Dirty Harry and the 
much more recent John 
Rambo, appears to have cen- 
tre stage again. And with 
Robert Redford's proven cin- 
ema appeal he may find a 
totally new audience in 
Springs. 

"If I ever had an opportu- 
nity of selecting a movie actor 
who could best represent him 
to my mind it would have-- 
been Cary Grant”, said Chan- 
dler of Marlowe. Maybe with 
Redford he’ll get something of 
the \yish Hollywood has de- 
nied him since they began 
turning his work into movies 
with Dick Powell as the first 
Marlowe in Murder My Sweet. 

Powell, arguably, the best 
Marlowe so far, was followed 
by Bogart in The Big Sleep, 
Robert Montgomery in The 
Lady In The Lake , George 
Montgomery in The Brasher 
Doubloon based on The High 
Window, James Garner m 
Marlowe, Elliot Gould in 
Allman's The Long Goodbye, 
Phil Carey (in a short-lived 
1959 US TV series) and 
Robert Mitchum in Farewell 
My Lovely and The Big Sleep 
as well as Powers Boothe in 
the much-liked Chandlertown. 

The moviemakers and en- 
trepreneurs of the Chandler 
legacy seem to be heeding 
their master’s words. He 
wrote: “You have to have 
passion. Technique alone is 
just an embroidered 
potholder.”

When Welsh businessman 
Lesjie Parsons became em- 
broiled in a dispute with his 
solicitor, he little knew its 
repercussions would lead to a 
major overhaul of the way the 
Law Society handles the 9,000 
complaints made every year 
against solicitors by members 
of the public. 

His own complaint, arising 
from a dispute over an onion- 
peeling machine which he had 
patented. led to the most 
notorious case against a solic- 
itor in the profession's history. 
Dissatisfied with the Law 
Society's approach, he was 
eventually forced to go to the 
High Court to sue his solicitor, 
former Law Society council 
member Glanville Davies, 
who was struck off the Roll 
for overcharging Parsons by 
some £130,000. 

The Law Society held an 
inquiry into how the com- 
plaint was handled and con- 
cluded there had been “many 
and recurring failures" includ- 
ing "administrative failures, 
mistakes, wrong doing: errors 
of judgement; failures in 
communication; high handed- 
ness and insensitivity on a 
scale that must have done 
great harm to the Law 
Society." 

Now the society is brining 
in a Solicitors Complaints * 
Bureau which will be mon- 
itored by members of the 
public appointed by the Mas- 
ter of the Rolls. The bureau 
starts work on September I. 

it will .be overseen by two 
key committees: an IT-mem- 
ber investigation committee, 


Tomorrow the Law Society launches 
a complaints bureau to improve the 
chances of redress when lawyers err 


to be dominated and chaired 
by lay people, which will act as 
the public’s watchdog on how 
the bureau staff process and 
handle complaints; and an 
adjudication committee, 
whose, IS members will 
mostly be solicitors, many of 
them Law Society council 
members. 

That committee will have to 
decide whether a solicitor 
should be disciplined: and 
whether the alleged miscon- 
duct is so serious as to warrant 
proceedings before the in- 
dependent solicitors' disci- 
plinary. tribunal, which can 
reprimand, fine, suspend or 
strike off. 

The bureau has a hard job 
ahead of it. There has been 
widespread criticism that the 
society opted for the less 
radical^ of two options for 
reforming the complaints 
machinery that were proposed 
in the report by management 
consultants Coopers and 
Lybrand. published -in the 
aftermath of the Glanville 
Davies case. 

The National Consumer 
Council says it is "quite 
unacceptable*' in both prin- 
ciple and practice that • a 
professional body which 
represents the interest of its 
members should sit in judge- 
ment on complaints from the 
public. 


Peter Thompson 61 direc- 
tor of the bureau, rejects such 


Leslie Parsons, who set the 
ball rolling, is pessimistic 
about whether the bureau will 
succeed. "I am pleased the 
Law Society is taking action to' 
put its house in order”, he 
says. "But I fee! far from 
confident that any benefit will 
be seen by the public. I am still 


committee is answerable to 


no-one. All rejected com- 
plaints must go to them and 
they can request the bureau 
staff to take certain action. It 
really is the committee of last 
resort so for as the public is 
concerned." An influx of com- 
plaints is expected when the 
bureau gels, next January, 
powers to deal with com- 
plaints of “shoddy work" by 
solicitors, who could be or- 
dered to submit their fifes for . 
scrutiny and if a complaint is 
justified, to remit their fees or 
take specified steps to put 
matters right 

The head of the investiga- 
tion comraitttee is Jean 
Horsham, a career civil ser- 
vant who spent 1 5 years in the 
Ombudsman’s office and was 1 
deputy there in 1981-1982. 
Philip Ely, the Law Society 
council member who chaired 
the three-man inquiry into the 
Parsons affair with its damn- 
ing report wfll head the 
adjudication committee. 

Solicitors themselves have 
not been entirely forgotten in 
all these consumer-orientated} 
moves. The Law Society is 
setting up a ethics and guid- 1 
ance department to take on 
the “pastoral" and “trades- 
union** sick: of advisiqg them!

A vision J * 


nearly empty as Vaughan and 
Brown talked about their role. 

“We're keeping a high profile 
and just letting people know were 
around", said Brown. We don i 
mind at ail if we see brake lights go 
on guiltily when we come into 
sight, because it means the driver is 
alert and has got his wits about 
him. Unless it is pretty obvious 
from the way he is driving, we 
don’t stop anyone at random for 
the specific purpose of testing them 
for drink. 

“But we are empowered to' stop 
any motorist for routine reasons, 
like checking an MOT. certificate, 
and we can then ask them to blow 
into the Alcometer if we think they 
might be over the limit" 

We were in Old Steine when a 
blue Moms Marina passed us in 
the opposite direction, driven 
aggressively, it seemed to Vaughan 
and Brown. The Granada swung 
across the road, swept past twacars 
and slipped in behind. It seemed 
impossible not to be noticed as, 
almost locked together, we turned 
left into St James's Street, right into 
Lower Rock Gardens, left again on ! 
to Marine Drive and a full half- , 
mile further along the seafront. 

The driver was young, his- 
' companions dressed raggedly in 
punk fashion. All three looked 
white-faced and shocked in the car 
headlights. 

“Just blow into here 7 ', said 
Brown. "This light will go on when 
you start and this one when you 
have done enough — it's just like 
blowing up a balloon . . But 
already the light was glowing. "I 
am afraid ! must ask you to 
accompany me to the police 
station”, he said. 

It was 3am and Brown and 
Vaughan still had three hours to go. 
But for one young man, the night 
was already over.

“grand" ayatollahs of Shia 
•Islam over the past hundred 
years he exudes the con- 
fidence of one who knows the 

future is bis. 

His elder brother is Grand 
Ayatollah Moharomad-Sadiq 
Rouhani, and tbe dissident 
Grand Ayatollah Tabatabai 
Qommi — at present under 
house arrest - is a cousin. He 
is also related to Ayatollah 
Khomeini himself. 

Now living . in Paris, 
Rouhani tasted the excite- 
ment of Iranian politics at an 
early age. When be was 19, he 
acted as a messenger between 
Dr Mohammad Mosaddtq, 
the nationalist prime min- 
ister, and Ayatollah KashanL 
the most powerful clergyman 
of his tine. Ironically, he also 
once played a part in saving 
Ayatollah Khomeini's life. 

In tbe summer of 1962 
Khomeini was arrested for 
inciting fundamentalists to 
riot against tbe Shah's reform 
programme, and Ron ban i was 
told by General Nassiri, tbe 
chief of the secret police, 
Savak. that Khomeini was 
“as good ns a corpse". 
Rouhani rushed the news to 
the shrine city of Qom. where 
three grand ayatollahs de- 
cided to promote Khomeini . 

Rouhani is -Jiighly con- 
scious of, gnd embarrassed 
by, the extremist image 
Shfism has acquired since 
the revolution in Iran in 
February 1979. 

“The Iranian government 
has little to do with. Islam", 
be says. “There is no need in 
our time for cutting off the 
hands of thieves. - The 
founders of Islam taught ns to 
inarch, forth .with society. 
Only the basic tenets are 
unalterable, and these are 
matters of personal belief, not 
the business oTgorenunents." 


V elayat-e-Faqib, the 
guardianship of the 
theology on which the 
constitution of the Islamic 
Republic of Iran is based, “is 
meant to empower the clergy 
to be the guardians of or-, 
phans and mentally-retarded 
individuals, not whole 
nations”, Rouhani continues. 
“Clergymen are not qualified 
to wield political power, and 
all the other five Grand 
Ayatollahs alive today oppose 
Khomeini on tlus." 

Rouhani feels that Kho- 
meini has lost about 70 per 
cent of the pnblic support he 
enjoyed in 1979. “When he 
goes I am certain that politi- 
cal power will slip ont of the 
hands of his men. Bat if we 
attempt a total overthrow of 
the regime, we shall set the 
country on ' fire — because 
there are some people who 
would start a civil war if we 
did not win them over first 
“Bat such is the enormous 
influence of the Sources of 
Imitation (the grand 
ayatollahs), and such is the 
longing among nationalists 
and liberals- for peace and 
normality, that I have no 
donbt that we shall win the 
support of the armed men on 
the streets if we promise not 
to go back on all the demands 
of the revolution — the change . 
to a republic, for example. 

“But tbe guardianship of 
the clergy will end. I would 
not even mind if our people 
chow a Christian to be our 
president. 1 also want to see 
an end to the war with Iraq, 
and a democratic future for 
Iran. I am worried that mv 
country is forging links with 
the Marxists of Cuba and 
Nicaragua, and that it does 
not see tbe fundamental dif- 
ference between Russia and 

the West"

WEDNESDAY PAGE 



When Vanessa, a battered wife fbr 10 
years, met a battered husband, she found 
rt difficult not to laugh. A year lata; she 
takes the issue vary seriously indeed. “I 
dunk it may be worse formen” she says. 

“They aren't likely to tell anyone and 

dure isn't a refine for them to go to.” - 

These are the problems being ad- 
dressed by Jcnni Manners, co-ordinator 
if the Women's Aid Centre, a refuge for 
3 a tiered women in Swindon, Wiltshire. 

-I was extremely puzzled when men 
started phoning asking for help. From 
1980. three or four would ring a year*’, 
she sayi “But since 1985 Pve taken 
about three dozen calls, mainly from the- 
Swindon area." 

\ She suspects the incidence of violence . 
perpetrated on husbands could be almost 
is prevalent as ‘wife bashing' — itself the 
most unreported crime until the 1970s. 

Can the phenomenon be accounted for 
bv the growth of feminism, or has it 
always been around?- Jcnni Manners has 
no cxplanation-for the sudden increase in 
i -ills from men. but decided to take some 
action. -Earlier this year, a team from the 
icnirc went to visit the world's only, 
refuge for battered- men in Vasteras. 
Sweden. There 1 5 people are involved m 
offering help on the telephone. 

The team was impressed, and now the 
local Labour council is looking into 
funding a 24-hour help line and refuge 
for battered husbands in Swindon. The 
only problem is that the men who Jenni 
Manners has counselled arc unwilling fb 
be publicly involved in the project. So 
the scheme will be run by the women 


, my wife is beating me’ 


Battered husbands are a growing phenomenon, as Caroline Phillips found at a centre which counsels them 


from ihc centre. Ironically, the mate 
victims who call up often feci a woman 
would be more sympathetic. 

The popular image of a battered 
husband is ridiculous. “People have this 
idea of a wimp of Sft 2m being bashed by 
his 16-sionc wife. Nothing could be 
further from the truth” says Jenni 
Manners, fresh from advising a client of 
6 ft 4in who was beaten by his 5ft 4in 
wifo. She has never counselled a male 
victim shorter than 5ft 8 in. The violence 

*She would draw blood 
With her bare fists or hit 
him with a frying pan 9 


ranges from kicking and scratching to 
siabbmgs with potato peelers and 
kitchen knives. 

“Kitchen implements and boiling 
walcrarc favoured. But -then I have seen 
a couple of men with fiaciured skulls. 
One was coshcd with a "brick while he 
was building a patio, and the other got 
whacked with a piece of wood after 
suggesting to his wife that they should see 
a marriage guidance counsellor." 

Ashamed to confess they arc the 
victims of their wives' assaults (and 
having no refuge), many men enter 
■hospitals claiming to have bumped into 


a door or dropped a kettle. Frequently no 
one beyond the immediate family will 
know what is really going on. When 
Jcnni Manners sees the men - “occa- 
sionally in their homes, but more often 
on a park bench or in a pub" —they often 
admit to a catalogue of injuries. 

The men come from all walks of life. 
“It exists in every class, just as violence 
towards women does. .It's just that the 
higher up the social strata you go. the 
more ways there arc to get out of the 
situation." 

She has counselled managing direc- . 
tors, solicitors, lorry drivers and police- 
men. Usually they arc in their mid-30s to 
laic 40s. “If ihcrc is any trail in common, 
it is that they are caring men — often 
exceeding the generally accepted male 
role in terms of looking after the kids — 
and they arc respectful of women." 

Colin, a taxi driver, is one such 
example. Extremely reticent, he is 26 and 
looks 10 years older. {His wife, an office 
clerk, was 1 1 years his senior.) He put up 
with his wile's violence — which started 
just three months after they married — 
for six years. She would draw blood from 
him with her bare fists and sharp rings or 
hit him over the head with a frying pan. 

“Initially. I was quite shocked — I 
didn't know what to do. because she used 
to go crazy — but I would never hit a 
woman", he explains. The outbursts 
occurred bi-monthly and were, as with 
wife bashing, worse when his spouse had 


been drinking. Did he ever lake steps to 
restrain her? 

“At first I did. I used to try lo calm her 
down by talking to her, but that made no 
difference. Sometimes I sat her on the 
iloor. but then she would re-attack when 
I was off my guard."Jcnni Manners 
confirms that restraining the assailants 
lends to inocnsc them even more. 

Colin got used to it. “I knew what to 
expect and found it easier just to lei her 
get il Over with." 

He could not make out why she did it. 
He simply knew that he was “frightened 
and didn’t have anywhere to go", and 
that retaliating could have made things 
worse. He was also worried that it was 
his fault and that it would recur in 
another relationship. He did not tell 
anyone. 

“You're ashamed of making a fool of 
yourself People would think you were 
wet and not a proper man." 

He thought of notifying the police, but 
knew they dislike getting involved in 
domestic situations. “Help, my wife's 
bashing ’me", is likely to provoke 
ridicule. In Jcnni Manners's experience, 
those who have been to doctors are 
greeted with disbelief, followed by a 
prescription for tranquillizers. 

Then by chance one day Colin picked 
up. the oncc-baucred Vanessa in his taxi 
— and moved out to live with her. His 
wife still comes around to terrorize him 


at Vanessa's house, "out of Jealousy. 1 
think". He found that an application for 
legal aid and an injunction met with 
derision. The court would think it was 
SLupid. the lawyer said. 

“At least I've got to the stage now 
where I can tell people” Colin says with 
relief. 

Adam, a 36-year-old, 6 ft fireman, 
endured his wife's violence for 13 years 
before doing anything about It. He is now 
trying to 'find himself through philos- 

"Because men have to 
be tough, I never spoke 
to anyone about it 9 


Ojphy and psychology. “1 would certainly 
hit back if a man attacked me," be says, 
“but I let her chuck bottles and plates, 
boiling water and hoi dinners at me." 

Yet he maintains that he thought this 
was normal. “1 didn't consider it a 
violent marriage, I thought all marriages 
were like that.* 

“Lots of men don't see it as violence", 
says Jenni Manners. ** because deep 
down they fed that if the need arises, 
they can defend themselves by holding 
the woman down". 

Things came to a bead when he was at 
home, having contracted cancer. Violent 


episodes started to occur as often as three 
limes a week. 

“In foe process of that strained couple 
of years, we had a role reversal — I was 
very happy to look after the kids and she 
returned to her job as a lab technician. I 
think she fell threatened in her role as a 
woman — and that manifested itself in 
further violence. It was her way of getting 
what she needed. It became too much — 
and she said she was leaving.” He agreed 
on. condition that she left the children. 

The tendency on dissolution is to 
award home and children to the wife. 
Jenni explains that many of the men she 
has counselled fear that if they leave 
home, the violence will then be trans- 
ferred to the children. The majority of 
men she has advised have been awarded 
custody. 

It wasn't until Adam sought Jenni's 
advice — at the suggestion of a close 
friend in the social services — that he 
realized all his rights and the true extent 
of the violence in bis marriage. 

The help Jenni gives is recognition and 
support, with some guidance on legal 
and housing rights. It's what these 
victims of the opposite sex want. “The 
men want to know that they're not alone 
in their problem. Accommodation isn't 
such a consideration. It’s easier for them 
just to walk out." 

The way things are going, Jenni 
expects to get a lot more calls from men. 
The calls always start: “I don't know if 
you'll want to talk to me. I've got a very 
strange problem “

Dressed for the part 

W hen Patricia Hodge Pjitrina Tfndup line which became the film Brie, 
was impersonating railing XXUUfeC Ildb Encounter, with lines like “How 
Nancy Mitford in the awfully nice you are" and “1

W hen Patricia Hodge 
was impersonating 
Nancy Mitford in the 
musical about ■ the . 
famous sisters, she was hailed as 
“the new Gertrude Lawrence" by 
Ned Sherrin (admittedly not with- 
out a personal interest in the 
—show). Now she is recreating the 
original Gertrude Lawrence m 
Noel and Gertie — a joint memoir 
of those two egotists which holds 
together an anthology of memo- 
rable moments from Coward. It 
opens this week. 

On the face of it there is no 
actress better suited to reviving 
legendary figures of the Thirties — 
she has Lady Diana Cooper as well 
is Nancy Mitford to her name 
already. Patricia Hodge has the 
rhirties -look in abundance. Pale 
olue misty eyes look out through 
laJf-dosed lids, the cheeks are 
ioJIow, the mouth small and 
■ursed as if la-take a cigarette 
idder, the complexion alabaster, 
ibove all she can assume that 
)hnk expression that looks as if it 
s waiting, aloof and without hope, 
orthe arrival of someone interest- 
ng enough to register. Add her 
fobbed reddish-blonde hair and a 
Mofyneux dress and you have the 
ingredients for a photograph by 
Beaton. 

The Molyneux dress is the one 
in which Gertie Lawrence 
“appeared" to a sleepless No 6 I 
Coward in his Tokyo hotel bed- 
room. He saw her standing on a 
terrace in the South of France, and 
the image “refused to go away 
again until four in the morning, by 
which time Private Lives, title and 
all. had constructed itself". The 
dress Patricia Hodge wears to play 
Genie as Amanda has been 
recreated from photographs by the 
show's designer, Carl Toms, and 
made in pure silk ivory satin by - 
Antoinette Gregory. It moves with 
a grace of its own and is. says Miss 
Hodge, “the kind of dress you 
don't know you're wearing”. 

Of course, it is a daunting 
prospect to invite comparison 
with a legend - especially one of 
whom we have no worthy me- 
morial “1 have had her records for 
years but I wish to God I'd seen 
her. What you bear on her 
recordings, made without an audi- 
ence, is not her. With an audience, 
she would put oh voices, extem- 
porize, weave a web in front of

Lawrence, right

their eyes. She was somebody who 
made you sit up in your seat” 

Off stage, Miss Lawrence was 
Gertie, the girl from Brixton, 
whose native vowel sounds were 
so different from her carefully 
modulated tones on stage. Some- 
times they came out in the 
occasional “yew", as Patricia 
Hodge demonstrated, humming 
one of her songs discreetly across 
the luncheon table. 

“Coward said no one could play - 
her who hadn't a -touch of the. 
gutter about her.” There is no such 
touch about Miss Hodge, although 
she grew up opposite Grimsby 
Docks — her father ran the best 
hotel in town. "Bui I went to 
school with roughishluds and had • 
a Lincolnshire accent which I had 
to clean iip, as Gertie got rid of 
.hers.". 

Pat Hodge longed to be a child 
actress with the Italia Conti (fired 
by seeing its pupils perform in 
Where the Rainbow Ends). “I was 
desperately in love wiih the 
theatre but Lincolnshire was a 
cultural desert. People said, don't 
be silly, nobody does that kind of 
thing.” So she trained for teaching 
and taught for a year before 
finding her wayto drama school at 
the late age of 22 . 


S he became a chorus girt, 
then got the lead, but does 
not- consider herself a 
musical artist. “I .can sort 
of get away with it- I'd give the 
world for a voice.' like - Julia 
McKenzie’s." Now she has to "get 
away with” Coward's potent 
“cheap music”, including songs 
such as Someday TU Find You and 
Parisien Pierrot. 

Of course, the stage’s second 
most famous balcony scene, from 
Private Lives, is included, with 
Lewis Fiander playing Nod as 
Elyot_ Perhaps the hardest scene 
to get away with now is the one in 
the station buffet In StiU Life ; 


which became the film Brief 
Encounter, with fines like “How 
awfully nice you are”, and “I 
thought perhaps we were 
being... rather silly.” 

“It's one cliche after another but 
that couple meant every word of 
them. There was that kind of 
innocence and unashamed ro- 
mance in the theatre then. 

“Noel and Gertie had this 
brotber-and-sister relationship. 
Both of them, as he put it were 
‘monkey-quick* and they could 
both see how u> further each 
other’s career. With his brilliant 
insight into the woman's point of 
view, he could use bits of their 
relationship in the plays. Their 
friendship had that kind of elas- 
ticity which would stretch to 
saying ‘Oh, you make me sick' and 
a moment later they would be 
laughing —just like Amanda and 
EyoL 

T he feet .that they never 
had a . physical relation- 
ship made them all the 
more devoted friends. A 
lot of people would be better 
friends if only that fabulous thing 
called sex didn’t get in the way." 

But although Private Lives is 
nowadays established as a classic, . 
Coward arid Lawrence inhabited a 
different theatrical universe from 
today's, one which was already 
fading before Gertrude Lawrence 
died suddenly of cancer in 1951 
“All she had when she died was 
the money she had made in The 
King and L in which she was 
playing in New York. She had no 
responsibility about money at all 
and was absurdly generous. When 
a woman came up to her in 
Cartier’s and told her how marvel- 
lous her performance .was. she 
bought the bracelet she was 
examining and gave it to her.” 

Gertrude Lawrence’s career' ( 
would be impossible today, says 
Hodge. “To go to the theatre then 
was much more uplifting, because 
audiences had no television. 
There was a different kind ' of 
magic about it and about its' very; 
very glamourous, high-profile 
stars. Suits were feted. The Prince 
of Wales was seen out with them 
every night at the Embassy Club. 
Gertrude Lawrence rode that 
wave — but once it was gone, it 
was gone."

Attainment that 
equals failure 


Straight rat of a dream: Patricia Hodge in the Molyneux dress 


^ There appears to be life 
f after O level results, but for 
a day or two it was tooch 
and go. The first few 
^ minutes were bad enough, 
the next few hours worse. In the 
be ginning there was the opening of 
tbe post, to reveal a form which 
revealed little, except ambiguity. 
My daoghler had been graded in 
seven of eight subjects, 

“unclassified” in the other. We 
took that to mean “fail". 

The back of the form, a flimsy 
thing, described the grades, A to E, 
as signifying the “level of 
attainment”. As a family, and with 
all doe modesty, we do not think 
we are entirely illiterate. We think 
that “attainment” is a word not 
unconnected with “success” or 
even “pass”. 

Bat further down, there was a 
phrase about grades A to C being 
“equivalent to the former O level 
pass". On this basis, one B and 
one C meant my. daughter had two 
O levels. Or ‘was it seven? I 
telephoned the University of Lon- 
don school exams department, 
where an official said that “every- 
one with a grade, from A to E, 
would get a certificate". 

Il would seem silly to give a 
certificate for passes and faUures, 
so obviously this meant seven 
passes. 

Obviously not. It transpired, a 
gpod many phone calls later, that 
the “old O level” pass level was 
indeed the one to hang yonr hat on. 
(So why call it tire old pass level?) 
But in an era when everyone has to 
be given the feeling that they have 
succeeded, “attainment" has ar- 
rived as a euphemism for faiL Or 
not, depending on yonr grade. 

I bust this is all perfectly dear. 

So my daughter has it all to do, 
as tbe football commentators say, 
next term. She has attained some 
success and she has attained some 
foil ore and it took half a day to 
locate the join. And we, the 
benighted parents, have had less 
than a week from receipt of the 
results to resumption of school to 
decide whether sixth form college 
really is the right way forward.

system. There is a word for this; it 
is nonsense. 

I cannot say, hand on heart, that 
the teachers* dispute caused my 
daughter to do less well than 
nearly every' examination over the 
past five years had suggested she 
would. But I can say that wbeu 
someone 1 love, who has worked 
hard and intelligently, is reduced 
to tears by a computer print-out I 
start to look for reasons. 

1 start to reflect on her need, 
throughout the past year — and 
mentioned in this space before — to 
share textbooks with a friend. I 
reflect on the number of classes 
she attended which the relevant 
teacher, in pursuit of a dispute, did 
noL 1 reflect on the utter stupidity 
of the teacher who, at the mock O 
level stage, set a CSE paper for the 
whole class and then put my 
daughter in for the O level 
examination, so that she had no 
experience of that subject as it Is 
tested at O level. 

I reflect on another teacher who 
did not and does not set homework 
because be “doesn't believe in it”. 
Perhaps most of all, I reflect on 
what might have been, had not my 
daughter spent a crucial year in 
her life being treated like an 
educational football by a pro- 
fession so cossetted that laced with 
the threat of being assessed it 
walked off the job. 

My wife and I cannot be the only- 
parents in this country who do not 
give a damn what teachers believe 
in. What we believe in is the right 
of oar children to an education 
uninterrupted by disputes and 
untrammelled by pseudo-philo- 
sophical stances over homework 
which are at best irrelevant and at 
worst plain idle. 

It may be that the anger and 
resentment I feel now is no 
substitute for calm, ' rational 
thought followed by constructive 
action. But the first mem- 
ber of the NUT who thinks 
of throwing that one at me 
had better rehearse it first. M

Or in the case of women, the 
biological clock is ticking 
away and it will soon be too 
laic to have children." 

The temptation is to think 
that if they arc so clever why 
can't they go out and find 
someone themselves. Lesser 
people da. Quite simple, says 
Mrs Fischer. Often they don't 
have the time. Often they arc 
people who arc accustomed to 
using consultants in therr 
professional life, so why not in 
their emotional life too? And 
some of her clients, she says a 
little darkly, are public figures 
who cannot go out trawling 
Annabels late at night. 

So they give her a list of 
requirements and Mrs Fischer 
sets off to find the ideal 
partner. It all sounds rather 
dinicaJ but, when you think 
about it, it is only a hi-tech 


version of Cinderella and the 
Slipper-fitting trials. This be- 
spoke service costs £1,500 
compared with a standard 
£500 entrance fee. 

This is all very well for 
Americans, but is it really 
what we want? Apparently, 
yes. Britain’s gentle people 
have been fairly pounding up 
lo her first floor suite at 
Claridges, their lonely hearts 
racing in expectation. “A lot 
of women want someone who 
can make them laugh. I guess 
humour and monogamy are 
top of the list of women’s 
desires. Men will more often 
discuss physical attributes. 
They arc less pragmatic and 
sometimes want to relive their 
youth with a younger woman. 

“Successful people have all 
the same disasters and catas- 
trophes as the rest of human- 
ity, and probably more so. In 
some ways they can be a little 
less practised than others.” 

What they are not isany less 
romantic. When she asks her 
women clients, by way of 
research, what gifts they 
would most like, they quite 
often say a single rose. Mrs 
Fischer gave me a moist smile 
as she related that story, and I 
must say that iL wasn't until I 
had left that 1 realised that I 
might have misheard her. 

Did she say a single rose — 
ora single Rplls?

Thomson Prentice on the forces lurking beneath the earth’s surface 


report 


Norman Tebbit is planning a 
saturation mailshot to sharehold- 
ers in all companies privatized by 
the government The decision 
follow a successful trial run with 
British Telecom shareholders 
who, unlike the similarly wooed 
expatriates, have thrilled to the 
Tebbit touch, and are apparently 
joining the Tory party in droves, 
Tebbit now intends to warn the 
shareholders that if Labour comes 
to power, their companies might 
well revert to state control. The 
Tories are also seeking the help of 
chairmen of privatized com- 
panies; Central Office has sug- 
gested that they insert letters 
carrying the same message in 
annual reports. I understand that 
the National Freight Corporation 
and Britoil are among the first 
likely to co-operate.- “We feel that 
the shareholders' vote is wobbly,, 
and we want to firm it up,” an 
architect of the plan tells me. 

Ladies’ night 

Dramatic irony in Athens, where a 
new Greek production of Lys- 
istrata. Aristophanes' famous play 
about a women's sex strike in 
protest against the waning of their 
men, opened this week. The 
Mount Lykabettus production, 
being in tbe true tradition of 
ancient Greek theatre, has an 
almost entirely male cast. For the 
first night, the company ordained 
that there should be an all-female 
audience. The men of Athens were 
more than happy to await their 
wives and girl friends outside. 
Only one man steeled himself to 
attend. He found himself sitting 
next to. of all people, the culture 
minister; Melina Mercouri, from 
whom he received some stern 
words. In mitigation be pleaded , 
homosexuality — a defence which, 

I gather, was accepted.

Treble choice 

Conservative voters in East Lo- 
thian will have an unparalleled 
choice of candidates at the next 
election, with three Tory names 
on the ballot paper. These are the . 
official candidate Peter Clarke 
(dry), local councillor David 
Thomson (moist) and Ulster 
Unionist supporter Michael Fry 
(orange). Thomson intends to 
stand in protest at the policies of 
Clarke, who calls the Labour-held 
constituency East Loathsome and 
is inclined to come out with 
eccentric remarks. What finally 
made up Thomson's mind was 
Clarice's suggestion that sending 
white mercenaries to overthrow 
the Botha regime in South Africa 
would be more effective than 
sanctions.

There were few. if any, of nature’s traditional 
warnings of a catastrophe to come. The popular 
images of a volcano m action are of rumbling, 
sulphurous clouds, jets of flame and hideous 
cascades of molten lava. 

This time, however, death and destruction erupted 
suddenly into the atmosphere from beneath the 
usually placid waters of Lake Nyos, in northwest 
Cameroon. The first rescuers found the bodies of 




Voicanic reservoir 
releasing gases "- 



lake bed sediment 
over many years 


'o N \ Gases including hydrogen sulphide, 
*zJ carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide 
forced upwards 


hundreds of lakeside villagers and 
their animals lying where a huge 
emission of volcanic gases had 
engulfed them. 

At least 1.200 people are be- 
lieved to have perished. It was a 
populous area because the volcano 
had given life before it took it 
away, creating a fertile soil and a 
lush landscape for farmers. 

It -killed nine out of 10 of the 
population, transforming the lake- 
side into a “huge wasteland”, 
according to one witness. Banana 
trees were snapped in half, vegeta- 
tion was blackened, but the vil- 
lages themselves apparently 
su tiered little damage. 

The causes of the disaster had 
almost certainly been building up 
for many years, perhaps 
centuries. The volcano is one of 
many in western Cameroon which 
generations of local people have 
believed to be extinct because 
their craters had become lakes. 
One of the lessons of the tragedy 
may be that volcanoes, though 
silent and apparently safe for 

By wholeheartedly supporting in- 
dividual freedoms and a nee- 
enterprise economy. South 
African business leaders are 
brought into conflict with apart- 
heid on both moral and pragmatic 
grounds. Apartheid, after all, re- 
stricts such fundamentals of the 
free-enterprise system as labour 
mobility, the ability to choose 
where to live and educate one's 
children, and participation in the 
country's political life. 

Abundant evidence shows that 
apartheid and its associated eco- 
nomic policies have restricted 
opportunity for all South Africans! 

But business leaders oppose 
apartheid for another important 
reason: it has become an ethnic, 
quasi-socialist system of govern- 
ment pursued by an Afrikaner 
oligarchy not hitherto imbued 
with free-enterprise principles. It 
incorporates some of the worst 
features of other centralized, 
bureaucratic socialist systems. ' 
Since the Nationalists -came to 
power In 1948, business — for- 
merly dominated by whites of 
British descent — has been cast in 
an adversarial role. Through 
essentially statist and socialist 
measures, wealth has been 
redistributed in favour of the 
Afrikaner community. The state 
lakes 27 per cent of gross national 
product and almost half of 
employable Afrikaners work in tire 
state sector — many having 
worked previously in agriculture 
and the mines. 

Business had exceedingly lim- 
ited influence over this process. 
After the Sharpe viile tragedy in 
1960, for example, the then prime 
minister, Hendrik Verwoerd, re- 
acted angrily to uigings from 
English and Afrikaans-speaking 
business executives to end the 
system of reserving certain cate- 
gories of jobs for whites. 

He accused them of “paving the 
way for black domination” and 
denounced as “traitors” the Asso- 
ciated Chambers of Commerce 
(Assocom), the most liberal and 
vocal South African business 
organization. For some years, 
government departments refused 
to reply to correspondence from 
Assocom officials. 

As economic growth and politi- 
cal power transformed the Afri- 
kaner nation from a rural, blue- 
collar background into a modern 
Western people, Afrikaner busi- 
ness leaders emerged whose in- 
terests increasingly dashed with 
apartheid. Their influence 
contributed to the erosion of 
apartheid in fields such as job 
reservation and trade-union rights 
for blacks. 

But on the central question of 
political rights, the state emerged 
as the key obstacle to reform. The 
prospect of sharing power, with 
the inevitable loss of jobs in the 
slate sector to blacks - let alone 
surrendering power — must look 
doubly unattractive to Afrikaners 
when a deteriorating economy 
makes jobs scarce. 

The state sector has been the 
chief beneficiary of apartheid. 
Bureaucrats and Nationalist poli- 
ticians have been able, in most 
instances, to pass on the costs of 
apartheid policies to other groups. 
Many of the costs of disinvest- 
ment and sanctions can be passed 
on to others; for example, to black 
migrant workers from neigh- 
bouring states, to blade South 
Africans, and to industry and 
commerce, in the form of higher 
taxes. 

So even if sanctions continue to 
multiply, Pretoria will probably 
have adopted a repressive and 
destructive siege policy by the 
time the government rally feels 
their adverse effects. 

These realities support the view 
of South African businessmen that 
there are no quick fixes for South 
Africa and that economic growth 
is essential. Sooner or later apart- 
heid will go, and they constantly 
tell the government that only 
negotiation with influential black 
leaders on political reform will 
make possible a transition to a 
post-apartheid society. That soci- 
ety will still be beset by the 
problems associated with a mod- 
ernizing, industrializing state with 
a peculiar mix of First and Third - 
Worlds. As a result, the South 


centuries, merely sleep, but never 
die. 

From deep below the bed of 
Lake Nyos, vast quantities of vol- 
atile gases created in the magma, 
or molten fluid reservoir of the 
volcano, were forced upwards by 
immense subterranean pressures. 
The gases, including carbon di- 
oxide. sulphur oxide, hydrogen 
sulphide and possibly cyanide, 
slowly but irresistibly permeated 
layers of rock and sediment on the 
bottom of the lake. 

What caused those gases to 
combine into a lethal, explosive 
cloud when they reached the 
surface is not yet clear. This is the 
rainy season, when the surround- 
ing land' would be waterlogged 
with decaying vegetation, which 
may have become explosive when 
the hot gases reached them. 

Scientists from the United 
States Geological Survey, who 
have been asked by the Cameroon 
govern ment to investigate the 
causes, have reported seismic 
activity in the area recently. One 


theory is that a minor earthquake 
may have caused the upsurge of 
gase&A landslide could have dis- 
turbed the lake bottom, triggering 
the outburst. 

One of Britain’s leading experts 
on Cameroonian volcanoes. Dr 
Godfrey Fitton of Edinburgh 
University, said yesterday: “The 
volcano is extinct in terms of 
eruptions but it is not uncommon 
for gases to build up beneath crater 
lakes in these mountains. 

“In this case, the explosive 
release of gas would have been 
followed into the atmosphere by a 
last-moving cloud,, almost cer- 
tainly of dense carbon dioxide, 
which would have enveloped the 
surrounding countryside. The 
cloud may have bear invisible, 
and there would have been little, if 
any, warning.” 

The carbon dioxide would dis- 
place oxygen in the air, virtually 
suffocating the 1 villagers and their 
livestock around the lake. 

Gas poisoning of volcanic ori- 
gin has been reported at least since

Charter for 
anew 











Mine workers are typical of Sooth Africa’s increasingly 
unionized black labour force. Employers most give 
them incentives and take them into their ranfMgwfy 


African business community has 
focused on two overriding prior- 
ities: husbanding resources during 
the transition and trying to con- 
vince everyone of the importance 
of wealth creation for the success 
of a post-apartheid society. This 
requires steady adherence to free- 
enterprise principles and a proper 
appreciation of the South African 
economy's real nature. 

South Africa can preserve its 
mining and manufacturing base 
only * if it remains within the 
Western-dominated international 
economic system. But South Af- 
rica has to run harder than its 
image in the West as an indus- 
trialized country might suggest 
Despite its gold, diamonds and 
other minerals, it is wealthy only 
in comparison -with its less fortu- 
nate neighbours: gross national 
product per capita in 1982. when 
tbe population was estimated at 
30 million, was two and a half the 
average of that of 20 subequatorial 
African countries, but only 25 per 
cent of Canada’s. 

Further, South Africa has an 
annual population growth rate of 
2.7 per cent and a typical Third 
World population profile — more 
than half the population are under • 
20. An annual economic growth 
rate of 6 per cent is .required to* 
create employment for more than 
300,000 new job-seekers every 
year — and that does not take 
account pf the 25 per cent of 
blacks already out of work. But' 
without foreign capital inflows, 
the economy can grow at little 
more than 3.5 per cent a year. In 
the past five years, in fact, it has 
averaged only 1.1 per cent. 


Even today satisfying Mack 
expectations requires ever greater 
wealth. They are constantly rising 
and will continue to do so when 
blacks have political power. Meet- 
ing those expectations will require 
development capital as well as 
transformed business and govern- 
ment policies. Capital cannot 
come solely from South African 
sources, whatever the economi- 
cally liberating effect of dis- 
mantling apartheid. 

High government spending on a 
wasteful bureaucracy rather than 
on infrastructure has inhibited 
economic growth. Moreover, high 
individual and corporate taxes 
have diminished investment cap- 
ital and private savings have 
dropped. 

South African business is com- 
ing to the conclusion that it cannot 
adapt itself to the new South 
Africa by carrying ou much as it 
has in the past Greater worker 
participation at all levels, not just 
through trade . unions but also 
through shareholding pro- 
grammes and other mechanisms, 
is likely. Small black businesses 
must be encouraged, perhaps on 
the lines of schemes in the United 
Slates. 

My company, the Anglo Ameri- 
can Corporation of South Africa, 
is following three important strat- 
egies:

In August 1984, toxic fumes

escaped and killed 36 people. 
Similar potential disasters may be 
building up beneath other lake

Because of the dangers, the 
Cameroonian authorities are 
organizing the evacuation of up to 
30,000 people from the area. Apart 
from the risk of further gas clouds, 
.there are inevitably threats of 
disease and contamination. 

The surface of the lake was said 
by observers from army heli-

they usually are, but muddied; a

- • Secondly, we must support and

• Thirdly, the company must be a

society that will have simplistic 
views about capitalism. 

Business operates on a long-

to plan for a long-term future to 
encourage industrial and eco- 
nomic growth. If we can show that 
we are taking a long-term view of 
South Africa's future, organiza- 
tions such as the African National 
Congress and the trade unions will 
be encouraged to do the same •

Country after country, even if 
ostensibly maintaining a socialist 
line, has moved to stimulate or re- 
establish its private sector 
Mozambique, Tanzania and Zam- 
bia are three examples dose to 
South Africa. 

The magmatic economic policy 
thus far pursued by Robert 
Mugabe, Zimbabwe’s impeccably 
socialist prime minister, owes 
much to the advice of President 
Samora Mach el of Mozambique, 
who exhorted him not to repeat 
Mozambique's mistakes but -to 
retain skilled whites and stimulate 
agricultural production. It is to be 
hoped that African leaders win 
exert similar influence on black 
South Africans who will be im- 
portant in the new South Africa. 

South African companies must 
involve themselves not only in all 
the 1 affirmative-action pro- 
grammes I have mentioned but 
must also engage Wade political 
groups in a dialogue about the 
economic future. That was One of 
the principal reasons for tbe visit 
by a group of seven South African 
business leaders that I led last year 
to the ANC in Zambia. 

The ANCs. freedom charter, 
however admirable it may be. in 
many respects, is vague and 
woolly on economic matters. Con- 
ceived in the mid-1950s, when 
'South Africa was a vastly different 
place politically and . economi- 
cally, the charter asserts: “The 
mineral wealth beneath the soil, 
the banks add monopoly industry 
shall be transferred to the owner- 
ship of the people as a whole. All 
other industry and trade shall be 
controlled to assist the well-being 
of the people.” 

Yet the goal of continued 
competition m tbe international 
economy is incompatible with 
nationalization. Small, open 
economies like South Africa's - 
benefit from the international 

operations of large companies. 

South Africa is not a country for 
the fainthearted. South African 
business is rapidly adapting, plan- 
ning and mobilizing to take part in 
that great experiment, - but k 
knows that its resources, even 
when combined with the eco- 
nomic forces liberated by the 
abolition of apartheid, will be 
inadequate to the challenge. 

The British and American 
counterparts of South African 
executives therefore face an awe- 
some responsibility. Many have 
made good profits in South Africa 
for decades. But faced with lean 
times anda host of pressures, they 
are attracted to the easy option of 
withdrawal especially if the. ig- 
norance. mischief-making, ana 
mythology underlying those pres- 
sures are ignored. 

Greater participation in South: 
Africa and tbe structural reform 
initiatives proposed by' South 
African business are much harder 
roads to walk. But they may also 
be in one of businesses’s best and 
most prominent traditions - risk- 
taking. ■

Disapproval of David Owen — or 
any other leading politician - is 
nothing new. But there is some- 
thing unusual in the description of. 
the SDP leader, in a recent New 
Statesman, as having “no strat- 
egy”, being ’‘uncomfortably 
rootless” and having “his eye on 
the main chance”. The criticism is 
made not by a Labour stalwart, 
from whom it might be expected, 
but by Roger Liddie. a member of 
the SDP national committee and 
the party's candidate in the Ful- 
ham by-election earlier this year. 

Using the sort of code usually 
favoured by sacked cabinet min- 
isters, Liddie set out criticisms 
which other prominent members 
of the SDP have confined to secret 
press briefings and personal digs 
of the “David-can-be-a-bit-dim- 
cult-at- times” variety. In doing so 
he made clear the true source of 
the disagreements which have of 
late been troubling the party. 

Liddie and those who think like 
him believe that the SDFs central 
goal should be to replace Labour 
as the clear alternative govern- 
ment to the Conservatives. They 
are wary about proportional 
representation — believing it to be 
correct but not bdjeving that it 
will fundamentally alter tbe. na- 
ture of British party politics. 

David Owen and other party 
members, on the other hand, 
believe that the emphasis should 
not be on replacing Labour but 
rather on replacing the political, 
system on Much Labour feeds. 
Owen's supporters believe that PR 
would require and involve a 
complete reorientation of British 
politics. In these circumstances it 
would be profoundly mistaken to 
talk simply in terms of supplant- 
ing Labour. . 

The Owen strategy is based on 
two main premises. First, the 
growth of a new class of pro- 
fessional and semi-professiona] 
workers who owe allegiance to 
neither tbe Conservative nor tbe 
Labour party. It is this expanding 
sector of the electorate and not tbe 
traditional Labour base, Owen 
believes, that will provide the 
major foundation of SDP support. 

Secondly, the Owen camp be- 
lieve that the SDP should pos- 
itively encourage multi-party 
government. It is the existence of 
two-party politics which has en- 
trenched outdated class distinc- 
tions, wrecked industrial relations 
and prevented a creative synthesis 
of different political traditions and 
ideas. 

The liddie strategy would,, in 
essence, seek the! maintenance of' 
two-party politics. The feqr is that, " 
over, time, this strategy would 
result in the repetition-of some of 
Labour’s worst errors— becoming 
a party of welters against man- 
agers, suspicious .about enterprise . 
and tending towards station. 

From ibis division of opinion 
all others follow. Those who see 
the SDFs major goal as being to 
replace Labour generally also sup- 


Qwcn and his supporters, 
contrast, believe that the SDP k , 

merely tire fira step in the era tHW . -, ’ 

of the “New Politics’ — a tend • 
change in the political processthj •«' - 
can be completed only afW 
proportional representation. T&q . 
“New Politicians” oppose 
merger which would, ossify dm ; :■ 
current political system and »js 
stria political freedom after PR. ■“ 
Similarly the accusation made ” 

wing stems from the belief of^j* 


wing stems issbsss uk ocua m , 

critics that- tbe proper role of a* 
SDP leader .is to appeal to - . 
Labour’s traditional etectoar 


Their belief that proportional 
representation would have limited 
impact leads them to conclude 
that tbe Alliance should form a 
conventional “broad church party 
of the left” to rival Labour inside 
the current system. 


The “New Ptiliticiteis^ b dfevjj ; !i 

that the job ofihe SDPIeader is to 1 

define social democracy cfeaijy ? 
without recourse to terms such y - 
“left” and “riabl" — terms that ' 
reflect tbe old politics, 

Tbe argument inside the SDP 
over defence also has its root ia •' 
the strategic disagreement. 

Liddfe strategy implies that no^ 
ing must be done to endanger ^ . 
unity with the Liberals or ihe 
prospect of coalition with Labour. * ... 

The biggest fear of those who ' i - 
agree with liddie is that certain ■" 
aspects ofSDP policy, for example c*-*’ 
its stand on Britain's track* 
contribution to Naxo, might mate !. • -'i 
coalition with Labour impossfefe „ . 
and a post-election agreement " ... 
with tiie Conservatives inevitable. - ' 

The “New Politicians" do not - • 
share this fear. They believe that ^ - 
the SDP should not obscure its - -i./ 
policies but should instead fine .. 
both the Liberal Party, before an V, 
election, and the Labour Party, - 
after it, to negotiate with' a firm, • ‘ 
free and confident SDP. . . "■ : 

The Liddie strategy remrirdto|* 
coalition with Labour at almas 
any cost. Tbe Owen strategy doo ! 
not. 

Arguments inside the SDP are 
not, therefore, just the irritating 
result of personal tensions. They •£■ '■ 
are the result of a strategic j s ~ 
disagreement It is not personal- 
ities but strategies that have 
convinced many that David Owes 
mustwin the argument 

When tbe SDP was formed, r: ‘ 
many of its founders, Owen ? 
included, may have seen it as tbe 
new Labour Party. It has, how- 
ever, become much more than 
that More than half its members • 
were never in any political part^F - ., , 
before. It has appealed to a new 
constituency, .anarate from the 
constituency of the old Labour 
and Conservative Parties. 

Vitally, it has established 
constitutional reform — never 1 
seriously .debated inside the La- 
bour Party — as a primary aim. It 
cannot noWv-look ' back, to its 
perceptions. -and ob^ctives five 
years ago. Things have! changed ' 
since then. 

At the SDP. conference in - 
Harrogate next month, the Coun- 
cil for Social Democracy should, 
as it did last year, confirm its 
support for the “New PoUtics*’ " 
and David Owen’s leadership, 

The SDFs historic task of dung- 
ing the political and social con- 
ditions of the British, people 
depends on it

Looking down the list of winners 
of the disease-of-th e-month con- 
test over the last few years, I see 
that herpes probably held the title 
longest, followed by anorexia, 
with hepatitis making- a brave 
showing now and again but never 
quite achieving the big break- 
through. _ . ■ 

I sometimes get letters from 
unsuccessful diseases, asking me 
how they can get into the big time, 
and I always tell them: Wait your 
turn! The newspapers will need 
you by and by. You don't have to 
cause an epidemic — you just have 
to be a bit scary, that's all. Think 
of rabies. I tell them. 

Rabies thoroughly deserved to 
be disease of the month a year or 
two back, because it got enormous 
publicity without .ever, being' 
caught by anyone in this country. 
Maximum exposure, minimum 
effect. Day after day we were told 
that 'rabies was raging across 
France and the Low Countries, 
about to enter Britain any day. 
The picture we were given was of 
the cliffs of northern France lined 
with savage dogs, like Napoleon’s 
armies in 1803. ready to invade 
Britain at a moment's notice. On a 
quiet., day, it- seemed, we could 
almost hear their barking across 
the Channel, 

So far rabies. has still not come 
and it has hardly been mentioned 
in any paper for a year. Does this 
mean the threat has receded? 
Have those dogs gone quietly back 
home? No. of course not The 
threat is. if anything, more worry- 
ing than before, especially if the 
Channel Tunnel is to be built 
AH that has happened isJbat the 
newspapers have grown tired of 
rabies. Remember, ‘ what news- 
papers like to do best is stand 
behind a door and jump out when 
you pass, shouting Boo! Or Men- 
ingitis! Or School Bus Horror 
Crash in France! When you stop 
jumping, they go away and think 
of something else to shout 

I ran remember about 10 years 

ago the story of the month being 
Bov Savaged. by Guard Dc* on 
Building Site. No sooner had one 
boy been savaged than- another 
.was savaged and then . another, 
and then there was an outcry,’ and 


then it all stopped. Tbe savaging of 
boys by wild alsatians . didn't stop: 
I mean the-newspaper coverage erf 
it stopped. The only reason that so 
many savagmgs seemed to have 
happened in one month was that 
each newspaper, had to find is 
own savaging, after which they 
stopped. 

Have you noticed that abdi*" 
tion is now the crime of tte 
month? If you read the headline 
Man Held After GirTs Terr* 
Ordeal, you automatically assume 
that tbe girl has been abducted, 
don’t you? That’s because the 
newspapers are -only reporting) 
abductions at the moment 

. The very same .headline, ■ 
couple, of months back, wouw 
have meant a rape to everyone. 

And a few months eadiereverf 
one would have automatical 
assumed it meant a case of dutt* 
battering, because child-battering 
was the crime of the month w 
months on end, and none of d* 
abductions or savaging ofboysef 
building sites were being reported- 
. We are nearly at the end ® 

August now, and 1 am surptised to 

report that there is no defir w&tntf 
yet for the traffic-accident-oRte 
month prize. Unmanned rail**? , 
crossings made, a good' ram 1 
showing, and so did. Coach Cfl®

HERR RAU’S HARD ROAD 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

When West Germany's Soda]

of Johannnes Kan for Chan- 
cellor at next January’s par- 
liamentary elections, as they 
did at their party conference 
yesterday, they were doing 
themselves and Herr Ran a 

favour. A less convincing 
majority would have re- 
inforced the impression, al- 
ready established among West 
Germany's political agnostics, 
of a party at odds with itself It 
would also have weakened the 
authority of Herr Ran who was 
provisionally nominated only 
at the beginning of this year. 

But the 425-1 majority for 
Herr Rau can only limit the 

damage his party hag gii dainpH 

in the five years that it has 
been out of power. He now has 
less than five months to unite 
and make credible an oppo- 
sition whose membership har- 
_ hours sympathies as divergent 
as those within Britain's La- 
bour Party. 

On the left, there is un- 
compromising opposition to 
anything nuclear, from US 
warheads to power stations; 
and -support for more public 
spending, even at the nsk of 
increased inflati on. On the 
right there is nostalgia for the 
Ostpolitik of Willy Brandt and 
the international statesman- 
ship, of Helmut Schmidt, and 
fear that West Germany's 
current prosperity could end if 
the policies of good house- 
keeping are allowed to lapse. 

In trying to reconcile these 
two wings, Herr Rau has fallen 
uneasily between the radical 
and the conservative ten- 
dencies of his party. Not only 
dots the election programme 


he presented yesterday risk 
pleasing neither ride, tt also 
panders just enough to the left 
to scare off wavering Christian 

Democrats. 

This is especially true of 
foreign policy, where Herr 
Rau's pledge to seek the 
removal of US cruise and 
Pershing missiles from West 
Germany must be a question- 
able electoral asset Dr Kohl 
won the last election for the 
Christian Democrats on this 
very issue, and now the mis- 
siles are in place popular 
opposition to them has de- 
clined further. 

Strong defences against an 
ever-threatening Soviet pres- 
ence in East Germany have 
been consistently supported by 
the centre of West German 
opinion, whose one fear about 
Chancellor Kohl was that his 
tougher line towards Moscow 
would harm relations with 
East Germany. Five years on, 
no perceptible damage has 
been done and the Social 
Democrats can no longer 
claim exclusive rights to 
Ostpolitik. Herr Rau, 
moreoever, has been seen, and 
feted, in Moscow a little too 
often for his own electoral 
good or the good of his party. 

On domestic policy. Heir 
Rau may be on stronger 
ground, but only just and 
perhaps not yet By promising 
to phase out the use of nuclear 
power, he has moved to attract 
those of the electorate who 
veer towards the Greens but 
hesitate before sq uandering 
their vote on a parity of such 
dubious potential However he 
will also have alienated sec- 
tions of the trade union move- 
ment who fear for their 
members' jobs. 


Unfortunately for the Social 
Democrats, it is also question- 
able whether unemployment 
by itself will be a major 
election issue this time round. 

Although West Germany cur- 
rently has two million un- 
employed (out of a total 
population 10 per cent higher 
than that of BritainX youth 
unemployment is largely ob- 
viated by conscription. And 
West Germany still enjoys a 
formidable reputation for its 
education and youth training 
systems, where the mainte- 
nance of standards is asso- 
ciated with the right rather 
than the left 

A more likely social issue for 
the coming election is West 
Germany's unlimited accep- 
tance of asylum-seekers. But 
the Social Democrats cannot 
appeal to popular discontent 
without at the same time 
alienating some of their natu- 
ral supporters and raising un- 
comfortable spectres from the 
past. It is probable therefore 
that the present political 
consensus on the subject — 
that West Germany re mains 
open to genuine refugees — will 
be maintained. 

Whatever the fortunes of the 
Social Democrats between 
now and January — and they 
will doubtless be in inverse 
proportion to the performance 
of the West German economy 
— the party’s election pros- 
pects look bleak. In his key- 
note address yesterday, Herr 
Rau conceded that his party 
was a long way from its goal of 
wresting power. And while his 
assessment may be realistic, it ; 
hardly reflects the confidence 
of which election victories are 

made. 


ANIMAL RIVALRIES 


,V. . . Milesfi? 

■or Ail® 
vk Hof* 


The jackals have been at it 
.•2 ■ again, says Mr Ron Todd. Not 
r e-.- the same jackal whom he 
" accused last year of insulting 
the National Union of 
.. 1 Mineworkers (Mr Eric Ham- 
; ~ moncL it should be recalled, 
-17:, had' likened the miners under 
Mr Scaigillfs leadership to 
lions fed : by- . donkeys) but. 
-different . examples, of this 
favourite creature in the Trade 
- v :* Union bestiary. : 

‘ Over the Bank holiday, the 
'-^Transport Workers* boss 
' "^.averred, jackals had been 
. A. 'criticizing Mr Norman Willis 
’ . . A the TUC general secretary and 
, doing it moreover not within 
■ the privacy of the general 
council (where, he implied, it 
: 7 might be in order) but in the 
hearing of journalists. 

Whether there was an Au- 

- gust plot against Mr Willis was 

, i-l. made irrelevant by the speed 
and. vigour with which Mr 
— Todd swung the bestial meta- 
phors in his defence. The 
tllf general secretary will open the 
Jliv TUC annual conference next 
week with the backing of the 
largest ‘ constituent trade 
|JT(I union, and doubtless all will 
'i D agree that the whole event was 
made up by the press. All will 
endorse Mr NeiJ Kinnock's 
v emollient remark of last Octo- 
• : • ber, that there are no animals 
' < in the Labour movement But 
. r > that will not be that 

For it is hardly a secret of 
' Congress House that there are 
... . worries about Mr Willis as an 
- V effective public performer. 
m \<. These are, interestingly 
.enough, parallel to those 
evinced this same August 


across the street from Trans- 
port House at Conservative 
Central Office. They have to 
do with, the word of the 
season, presentation. If better 
presentation means switching 
advertising, agencies, or 
employing for the first time a 
Head-Up. Display Unit for 
better speech delivery (Mr 
Willis wOl be using one at the 
Brighton Conference next 
week), so be it 

Mr Willis is a poor orator. 
Typically, the TUCs chief- 
tains worry more about the 
internal effect of a bad speech 
than how it appears to the 
populace. But even they have 
to acknowledge that the public 
impression given by a ram- 
bling discourse counts if the 
TUC is trying to win the hearts 
and minds of a public which 
has a long memory of unjusti- 
fied industrial action and 
union arrogance. 

Mr Willis has the aspect of a 
fell-guy. He is the titular head 
of a movement fighting eco- 
nomic change and ideological 
dissolution. There is not only 
little love lost between leading 
figures, but their very concep- 
tions of trade unionism in the 
1980s are profoundly opposed. 

Despite the clear evidence of 
public opinion polls and the 
1983 election result, the lead- 
ers of Nupeand Nalgo can still 
hedge their commitment to 
accepting statutory rules on 
ballots for industrial action 
without being prepared in any 
way to relinquish their claims 
to legal privilege. The weasel 
words of the motion on ballots 
for next week — differentiating 


between strikes and other 
industrial action — show how 
great has been Mr Willis's task 
in putting into practice bis 
acceptance that since 1979 
'time has moved on." 

The bulk of the work of a 
TUC . general secretary is 
. bureaucratic diplomacy. It is 
about holding incompatibles 
together: It is about maintain- 
ing, through such bodies as the 
Manpower Services Commis- 
sion and the National Eco- 
nomic Development Office, 
the notion that the TUC is a 
“partner” with government 
rather than a mere interest 
group. 

Mr Willis' performance, as 
far as can be judged, in such 
matters is highly competent 
He has been strong in the 
News International dispute 
and has strongly rejected cries 
for the expulsion of the elec- 
tricians. He has, like his 
predecessor Mr Len Murray, 
made much of the ending of 
trade union membership at the j 
Government Communica- I 
tions Headquarters, seeing 
this, rightly, as a promising 
issue of principle. 

Mr Willis is not a Len 
Murray with his Labour 
intellectual's strength, nor is 
he a Feather or a Woodcock. 
But to visit on his head his 
affability is surely wrong. Mr 
Willis is the general secretary 
of a union movement in 
decline, its members puffing 
against a government and 
possibly against the age. To 
maintain even a semblance of 
unity is no mean feat 


Since the report of the 
McClelland Royal Commis- 
sion in Australia on the con- 
duct and consequences of 
British nuclear testing there in 
the 1950s and 1960s, the two 
Governments concerned have 
? - been bar gaining quietly over 
; the exact obligations imposed 
by^ the Commission's in- 
vestigations. There is little sign 
of agreement on at least one 
key issue. 

.. .The Commission advised 
that further investigation of 
lingering plutonium at the 
Maralinga test range be under- 
taken and that any further 
dean-up that was necessary 
should be carried out and paid 
for by the British Govern- 
ment. In common with its 
approach to the Commission 
while it sat, the official British 
response has been cautious 
and minimalist. A more pos- 
itive attitude would be well 
worthwhile. 

The Hawke government de- 
clined to create the suggested 
Maralinga Commission, set- 
ting up instead a group of 
experts which subsequently 
recommended a fresh research 
programme. London is cur- 
rently being asked to pay half 
of the £1.4m bill; current 
indications arc that it is resist- 
ing this request and the 


MORALS AND MARALINGA 


Australian minister respon- 
sible, who is due in London for 
talks in October, expects to 
have to renew pressure to split 
the cost when he arrives. 

Technically, of course, Brit- 
ain does not have any dear 
obligations. Two agreements, 
made in 1968 and 1979, dose 
the book. In addition, if Brit- 
ain agrees to overturn those 
agreements it may — but will 
not certainly — affect the 
Government's ability to resist 
many other possible claims 
alleging that safety measures 
were not of the highest pos-_ 
able standard. 

But this is a miserly and 
pedantic stand which govern- 
ments of the future will regret 
if it becomes the beginning and 
end of our case. Britain owes 
Australia a huge debt for 
permission to cany out tests 
which were crucial to the 
creation of a British deterrent 
Twice since the original clean- 
up operation in the 1960s, 
further inquiry has unearthed 
a more persistent and dan- 
gerous problem than had been 
hitherto realised. A new study 
has dow indicated major resid- 
ual health risks; a technical 
group, on which British sci- 
entists were represented, has 


study at modest cost Are we 
really to maintain that because 
of agreements signed in ig- 
norance of this new informa- 
tion this is a purely Australian 
problem? 

And if Britain accepts, as it 
should, its share of the burden, 
it might as well be ready to 
share some of the real cost 
which lies further down the 
road. The exact size of the final 
bill at Maralinga is unknown, 
but it will be considerable. 
Governments for very natural 
reasons abhor open-ended 
commitments. But this 
particular commitment was 
always destined to be, if not 
open-ended, wide and long- 
lasting. 

The original tests were con- 
ducted in a necessary hurry: 
that does not mean that the 
consequences can be dealt 
with just as briskly. Knowl- 
edge of radiation risks, clean- 
up techniques and public 
awareness of nuclear issues 
have all evolved in the two 
decades since the ranges were 
"‘cleaned up”. By asking an j 
ally for permission to use its 
“natural advantages” (in the , 
words of Sir Robert Menzies) 
for the tests, we put ourselves 
under an obligation which 
overrides the legal agreements. 


From Mr CarreM Barnett 
Sir. In his letter of August 21 
Professor-Sir Geoffrey Eton as- 
sorts (without offering evidence or 
' reasoning) that to blame this 
t country's' poor economic perfor- 

■ mancc on its higher education 
system is "ignorant parrot talk”. 
Yet. from late Victorian Blue 

■ Books through Whitehall in- 
vestigations in the Second World 
War to ream . surveys by the 
Department of Trade and In-- 

. -dustry and other bodies, a con- 
stant theme with regard to 
! Britain's relative industrial de- 
1 dine has Iain in the scarce supply 
l of appropriately educated man- 
agerial and technological talent, 
especially when compared with 
the output of such personnel by 
our trade rivals. 

To cite one outstanding exam- 
ple from the Second World War, 
"technology transfer” in the field 
of radar and radio from the 
brilliant original inventions of a 
handful of world-class scientists 
into series production ofkn for the 
Armed Forces was held up for 
months, even years, because of the 
scarcity of highly qualified tech- 
nical and managerial talent in the 
radio and precision-engineering 
industries. Professor Elton will 
discover this ifhe consults the files 
of the Radio Board and its sub- 
committees in the Public Record 
Office. 

Moreover, we currently read 
again and again in our newspapers 
(not of course on the literary 
pages) that Britain's development 
of new high technology industries 
is being throttled by lack of 
appropriately qualified recruits. 
More broadly, if Professor Elton 
consults senior industrialists, he 
will find that they will tell him that 
a major problem of company 
development lies in difficulty in 
finding high quality managers. 

Finally. I find it hard to 
understand Professor Elton's 
praise of grammar school educa- 
tion as “mind-stretching” when it 
has traditionally consisted of an 
ever-narrowing specialisation. In- 
deed. I am struck by the illiberal 
nature of the traditional “liberal 
arts” education, in that it exactly 
lacks broad culture and wide 
understanding of the world in 
which we live. 

Surely Professor Handy is right 
(August 22) to call for a much 
wider definition of a “liberal 
education” which would en- 
compass the creative as well as the 
-critical faculties, the solving of 
problems as well as the writing of 

Paying In cathedrals 

from iheSuhdean of Lincoln 
Sir. The Times leader of August 18 
docs not go far enough. The 
English Tourist Board's report of 
1979 on cathedrals and tourism 
canvassed the issues of tourism 
and its effect on cathedrals thor- 
oughly. Indeed, it was that report 
which led to some cathedrals 
joining the originaJ few in setting 
up systems for inviting greater 
contributions from the visiting 
public. None of the solutions is 
wholly satisfactory. I think three 
things are now needed. 

First, the cathedral chapters 
need to take an iniliaii ve to form a 
national trust for the work of 
restoration, conservation and 
preservation of the cathedrals and 
great churches of the nation. It 
should be of such a nature as to 
command credibility and general 
public support. It should establish 
ways and means to subsidise 
works of preservation from the 
fends it can raise, however small 
in the first instance. 

Secondly, the issue of tourism 
itself is too important to be left in 
the present vague area of 
responsibility. Tourism jostles the 
insurance industry as the great 

Asthma deaths 

From Dr K.K. Eaton 
Sir. Dr Wandle’s comment (Au- 
gust 1 9) is incomplete. Asthma has 
an allergic component and treat- 
ment by palliative pharmaceuti- 
cals may be unsatisfactory in the 
presence of cats and dogs. 

However, many asthmatics are 
not sensitive to these. Any sugges- 
tion that such animals must be 
excluded on general principles, if 
wrong, may lead to rejection of 
other sound advice from the same 
source. -Some may prove to be 
sensitive to other factors, such as 
house dust mites, mould, or 
ingcsiant hypersensitivity which is 
almost ignored. 

Yours faithfully.

Doing a double-take 

From Mr O. Brooke 
Sir. If the reading of railway 
station names is to be made easier, 
due to readers of The Times 
suggestions (letter. August 25) can 
the same thought be applied to 
reading the names of British 
villages as one approaches and 
leaves them, particularly by car? 

In France, the name of the 
village is written on both sides of 
the same noriceboard. so that you 
have a chance to read the name as 
you enter, if you have missed the 
name, as so often happens, then 
\Ou have a second chance as you 
leave the village. 

It is the ingenious idea of using • 

the one noticcboard. with the 
name of the village on both sides. 1 

that so appeals to me. and it 1 

works. 1

> From Sir Jack LongUwd 
■ Sir. Sir Geoffrey Ehon makes a 
’ number of assertions about the 

• state of English education, asser- 
tions untainted by anything so 

i vulgar as evidence. 

' For brevity's sake. I take up one 
only of bis points; “The introduc- 
tion of the comprehensives . . . 
destroyed not only the mind- 
stretching skills of the grammar 
schools but also the technical 
schools . . 

For one thing, the so-called 
tripartite system of secondary 
education had one stunted wing — 
there were extremely few technical 
secondary schools. For another. 
Sir Geoffrey shows no awareness 
of the fan that there have always 
been good grammar schools and 
bad grammar schools. 

I suppose Stratford-on-Avon 
must be awarded a plus, because 
ofShakespeare. Similarly there are 
now good and bad comprehensive 
schools. Let me give just one 
example. 

Our local Lady Manners School, 
a Tudor grammar school founda- 
tion. had been for centuries a 
normally good but occasionaUy 
bad school. Twenty or so years 
ago, we converted it into a 
comprehensive school, which still 
provides the membership of the 
local rugby dub and most of the 
local cricketers, too. 

Last year, I understand, our 
excellent headmaster was invited 
by the Headmaster of Shrewsbury 
School to visit him there and 
explain why the BakewelJ com- 
prehensive secondary school man- 
aged to obtain such a brilliant list 
or Oxbridge scholarships and en- 
tries. The answer is simple: it is a 
very good school 
So we'd better forget all this 
doctrinaire nonsense about com- 
prehensive being a dirty word and 
grammar an inherently virtuous 
one. 

Yours faithfully, 

JACK LONGLAND,

“invisible” earner in the balance 
of trade. The time has come for a 
- Cabinet-level Secretary for Tour- 
ism (and the Arts?), both to 
promote this considerable but 
complex industry and to protea 
and sustain the substance of it: the 
historic and cultural heritage of 
the nation. 

Thirdly, is it not time for some 
lough thinking about a visitors' 
tax to be collected at entry to or on 
departure from the country? The 
revenue- from such a tax could be 
allocated not only to the crudai 
area of conservation and restora- 
tion of historic buildings but also 
to subsidise and promote the 
kinds of cultural events and 
festivals which simply entertain 
visitors but to sustain which 
becomes more and more a drain 
on local resources and energy. 

Without substantial fresh 
investment of money and 
imagination the whole edifice of 
British tourism may soon be at 
great risk. And not even West- 
minster Abbey's visitors will pull 
it through. 

Yours faithfully.

Study of philosophy 

From Dr L Jonathan Cohen. FBA 
Sir. Mr Tom Cross’s letter (August 
20) asserts that British philosophy 
today is predominantly positivist 
in outlook and essentially an 
adjunct or aid to other disciplines. 
He traces its present difficulties to 
this and to its consequential 
preference for critical scepticism 
as against holistic speculation. 

Mr.Cross is obviously unaware 
of how far British philosophy has 
changed from the period of 30 to 
40 years ago when positivism was 
still a serious issue. But tl is also 
hard to believe that Mr Cross can 
be well acquainted with the cur- 
rent climate of opinion in those 
areas of academic policy-making 
that determine financial expen- 
diture. What evidence has he that 
philosophy departments would 
receive a greater share of scarce 
resources if they encouraged more 
holistic speculation? 

The strongest case for fending 
philosophy research in a period of 
recession is that many philos- 
ophers are closely involved now in 
inter-disciplinary inquiries that 
are potentially of great value to the 
community, such as cognitive 
science, linguistic theory, welfare 
economics, or medical ethics. The 
strongest case for fending philo- 
sophical education is that it 
performs exceptionally well at 
training students to think clearly, 
coherently and self-critically 
about novel intellectual problems. 

Of course, no civilised country 
should undertake philosophy just 
for the sake of pay-offs like these. 
Of course, ihcre should be 
opportunities for pure speculation 
as well. Bui those opportunities 
will arise in any case if our 
departments can be saved, and the 
argument for saving them in the 
current harsh state of our national 
priorities is predominantly a 
utilitarian one. 

Your, faithfully.

Poverty trap on 
mortgage debt 

From Mr Cotin George. JP 
Sir. I am becoming increasingly 
concerned at the hardship caused 
by the rapid rise in mongage 
arrears and foreclosures and the 
new poverty trap that is emerging. 

If an owncr-occupicr becomes 
unemployed there is usually help 
available from social security 
towards the payment of mortgage 
interest, but there is nothing to 
help those in work whose income 
suddenly drops. 

A tenant in those circumstances 
may receive help with the rent and 
general rates, whereas an owner- 
occupier can only receive help 
with the general rates. 

The solution would be for the 
existing housing benefit scheme to 
be extended to cover mortgage 
inicrcsuThis would ensure that 
help is directed to where it is most 
needed — for example, to the 
separated partner remaining in the 
matrimonial home or to the 
husband whose wife has given up 
work to have a baby, struggling to 
pay the mortgage on one income. 

It would be a useful balancing 
factor when interest rates rise, 
which has been the cause of much 
difficulty. Above all. it would 
reduce the undesirable position 
which now prevails when, because 
of housing costs, it is possible to be 
belter off out of work than in 
work. 

It could alternatively be the 
formula for an all-party agreement 
to phase out MIRaS (Mortgage 
interest relief at source), which at 
present applies to mortgages up to 
£30.000. 

Yours faithfully.

Anxiety on the Rock 

From Major R. J. Peliza 
Sir. Former Governor of Gibral- 
tar. General Sir William Jackson, 
in his letter (August 22) omits the 
important point that two out of 
the three political ponies he 
mentions are in serious disagree- 
ment with the Chief Minister on 
the reciprocal removal of the 
guards. Spain's removal of the 
frontier guard would please the 
Chief Minister, but it would not 
justify the withdrawal of the 
British guard to these two political 
parties or the majority of the 
Gibraltarians, for two fun- 
damental reasons: 

~l. Because Britain has no claim to 
the territory on the Spanish side of 
the frontier, but Spain is actively 
pursuing the claim to the isthmus 
(Gibraltar Airport). Therefore the 
removal of the Spanish guard is of 
no diplomatic significance to 
Spain, whilst the withdrawal of the 
British guard without Spain 
renouncing her claim to the 
airport is clearly symbolical of 
possible dire consequences to the 
Gibraltarians. 

2. Because one of Spain’s con- 
ditions for removing the guard is 
the dismantling of the frontier 
gates, which the Foreign and 
Commonwealth Office considers 
to be only “premature” at this 
stage, and the present Governor 
has said this question has been lefi 
“on one side for the time being”. 

These moves, at a time when 
the sovereignty of the Rock is 
being currently discussed under 
the Brussels Agreement suggest, 
not just to the “cynics” in Gibral- 
tar. as the General believes, but to 
the population generally, that the 
Foreign and Commonwealth Of- 
fice is not backing Gibraltar as it 
should. 

Yours faithfullv.

Pastures new 

From Mr J. M. Grant 
Sir. The Third Leader in your 
edition of today's date (August 21) . 
tells us that Australia has the 
economic structure of a Third 
World developing country, but 
that its population enjoys First 
World living standards. 

The Second World would seem, 
by inference, to avoid the prob- 
lems and excesses of both the First 
and Third. Would you. Sir, or one 
of your correspondents, be kind 
cnbugh to tell me where the place 
is. and what it consists of? It 
sounds a splendid place to retire 
to.

Awful warning 

From Dr Kieran Sweeney 
Sir. While \ am all in favour of 
speaking and writing plain En- 
glish. "poison” is a term which 
needs more accurate definition 
(letter. August 18). Many medi- 
cines arc beneficial in therapeutic 
doses but poisonous in excess. 

Bui contusion can arise, as with 
the elderly lady whom I treated 
with Warfarin for her venous 
thrombosis. When she realised her 
doctor was feeding her rat poison 
she stopped this and all her other 
medication, refused to sec me. and 
complained to the relevant 
authority. 

Last I heard, she was doing fine, 
no donor, no medicine.

Alexemdrxi'pahice, north London ; 
there were then about lOOsets in 
the country. 


THE WIRELESS 
EXHIBITION 

Fmm out Wireless Correspondent 

The most popular exhibits at 
Olympia yesterday were the dem- 
imstratHins of experimental high' 
definition television from the new 
B.B.C. station at the Alexandra 
Palace, there being a steady stream 
of viewers throughout both periods 
of transmission. The system used 
yesterday was that of the Baird 
Company, while ibe Marconi- 
E.M.L system will be demonstrat- 
ed today. Other London sites 
where many people bad an oppor- 
tunity of witnessing reception were 
at the Baird Company's offices in 
Hayraarket and in a waiting room 
in Waterloo Station. . . . 

TODAY’S TELEVISION 
TRANSMISSIONS 

The B.B.C. announces that the 
Television Orchestra of 22 players, 
conducted by Mr. Hyam 
Greenbaum. will be televised for

which forms part of the pro- 
gramme transmitted from Alexan- 
dra Palace for reception on the 
television screens at Radiolympia.

mate timetable of to-day's televi-

TELEVISION IN THE 
HOME 

The possibilities of television in 
the home were shown in a private 
demonstration yesterday in the 
offices of Baird Television, Limit- 
ed, in the Haymarket. The first 
and most obvious point in its 
favour is its compactness. The 
receiving set is contained in a 
cabinet no larger than the ordinary 
radio gramophone, which it resem- 
bles. And although it was explained 
several times during the pro- 
gramme that the demonstration 
was no more than experimental, to 
the unpractised eye the result was 
remarkably satisfactory. 

In the programme of films and 
“direct” performances that was 
shown the pictures of single per- 
sons and scenes free of intricate 
details were more successful than 
those In which the miniature 
. screen was crowded. At present the 
most noticeable Saws in this new 
entertainment are a tendency to 
flicker, which it shares with most 
of the old silent films, and a curious 
and mieaay shifting of parts within 
the image which is peculiar to 
itself. The latter appears most 
often when the pictures shown are 
themselves still, as in “Post 
Haste". Mr. John Grierson's docu- 
mentary film, which is composed 
entirely of photographs of old 
prints. 

One of the most interesting 
aspects uf the demonstration was 
the inclusion of an ordinary news 
film, since a popular part of the 
service by the B.B.C- has always 
been its news bulletins. . . .

The National Trust is In the 
process of buying a major part of 
the Shermgham Hall estate on the 
north Norfolk coast. 

The price has not been revealed, 
bet the trnst says it is negotiating 
the purchase with the help of a 
National Heritage Memorial 
Fond grant and a legacy from a 
supporter. It intends to launch an 
appeal for farther funds. 

Shermgham Hall and its park 
were designed by Humphry 
Repton, the architect and land- 
scape gardener, earlier last cen- 
tury for Abbot Upcher, whose 
family owned the estate until the 
death of Mr Thomas Upcher last 
November. 

It looks out at the North Sea 


over a coastline designated by the 
Nature Conservancy Council as 
being of special scientific interest. 
The trust hopes to acquire some 
800 acres of the 1,400 acres 
property, which Repton regarded 
as his masterpiece, dedaring it “a 
specimen of iny art, as I never 
before had an opportunity for 
displaying”. 

The park contains rare rhodo- 
dendrons, azaleas, and numerous 
examples of unusual trees. The 
late Mr Upcher opened the 
grounds on a number of days each 
year, but the trust Intends to allow 
public access all the year round. 

Mr Thomas Upcher wanted the 
estate to pass to the trust after his 
death, but the trustees were not 


able to make an outrfoht gift The 
present resources of the estate, 
plus its running costs, have com- 
bined to lead them to sefl. 

The National Trust had the 
support of the North Norfolk 
District Council and other in- 
terested bodies who feared the 
property might otherwise go to an 
owner who would cease to open it 
to the public. 

The trust says the hall, started 
in 1812 but not completed until 
1839, is unsuitable for regular 
opening to the public, and plans to 
let it privately. However, it hopes 
to buy the portrait collection and 
furniture and other items particu- 
larly associated with the Upcher 
family.

Grasses which could 
yield fuel in the future 


By John Newell 


Fast-growing grasses coold 
become a source of energy in 
the next decades and help to 
COD the gap as Europe's supply 
of oil and gas begins to 
dwindle. 

These U su per grasses” 
would grow on waste lands 
msuitaSle for conventional 
agricuttare and could be har- 
vested to be distilled into so- 
called producer gas to use as 
fbeL 

Such energy crops could 
never provide more than a tiny 
part of Britain's need because 
of our intensive use of land. 
Bntb France and some other 
parts of Europe gas distilled 
from fast growing grass grown ~ 
oa otherwise useless fend 
could become an important 
soarce of energy. 

Biologists at Essex Univer- 
sity recently identified three 
species of presses which grow 
ranch faster than the avenge 
andi 
for their; 

baa way that 
is typical of tropical, rather 
than temperate plants. This 
makes afl three grasses poten- 
tial candidates for ftrtnre en- 
ergy crops. 

Tropical plants photo- 

oriifoiw using a different 
biochemical pathway from 
that used by temperate plants. 
Tropical photosynthesis is so- 
called C4 photosynthesis 
which is 40 per 'cent more 
efficient than the C3 photo- 
synthesis, tsed by temperate 

pbmfR- 

The first requirement for 
energy crops Is that they 
should trap solar energy as 
efficiently as- possible. The 
value of an energy crop de- 
pends upon the acreage winch 
has to be planted to obtain, a 
given yield and that hi turn 


depends upon the effititacy of 
photosynthesis. 

Crops and trees using C4 
photosynthesis are death, 
nod candidates but very few 
C4 crops are able to saetrive 
the winter in temperate areas. 

Dr Steve* Long and Dr 
Marion Bingham have found 
two species of grasses which 
grow in Canada and one which 
grows in Weston Europe 
which are C4 photo-, 
synthesizers and yet are able 
tB withstand severe winters. 

AO three are tall-growing, 
long-lived pereuiab and at 
least one species has the added 
advantage of 



via nitrogen fixing bacteria 
firing on stem and roots. All 
tbree species (Sport iaa 
pectimata, Spartima 

cynosmroides and Cypenx 
longtts), like all other C4 
pbotosynthesizers need only 
half as noth nitrogen in tie 
soil as do. C3 photo- 
synthesizers for every ton of 
dry phmt matter they produce. 

With the support of the 
EEC noo-nudear alternative 
energy programme. Dr Long 
and Dr Bingham, with a team 
at Trinity Qdkge, Dublin are 
now- testing . the ease of 
establishment, low tem- 
peratnre tolerance and dry 
matte- yield of the three 
grasses in pQot trials at four 
sites over tbenext three years. 

Some of the trial plots are 
on waste land, bmd exhausted 
by peat cutting ami water- 
togged day Id Ireland where 
other crops cannot be grown. 
Ordmaiy 03 grasses riD be 
grown near by as controls. If. 
the- trial show that tie three 
C4 species offer big potential 
advantages as energy crops, 
then rou scale trials*: mil 

follow.

MAJOR GENERAL 
WILLIAM C. CHASE 

American war hero who

MR DONALD FLETCHER 


Mr 'Donald Fletcher, GC, 
who was awarded tie George 
Cross (formerly the Edward 
Medal) for the mine rescue of 
a colleague in 1925, at the risk 
of being crushed to death 
ImnsdC died on Assist 22 at 
the age of 84. 

Bom on January 17, 1902, 
at Sbeffiddr he was educated 
there and at Worksop and-. 
Fubecte At the age of 13, he 
became a grocer’s apprentice 
but, after, two years, turned to 
farming. He became a miner 
in 1922. 

At Cresswefl Coffiery, Der- 
byshire, on September 10, 
1925, there was a roof coHapse 
to a depth of 16 feet adnch 
completely buried a miner 
named Cocker. Luckily, some 
of the larger timbers became 
interlocked, saving Cooper 
from instant death. 

After frantic digging, it was 
discovered that his head was 
near the edge of the fell, and 
tie debris was cleared from 
bis head and shoulders to let 
him breathe. His trunk and 
legs, however, were held fast. 
It became dear that the only 
way a rescue coold be accom- 
plished was for someone to 
crawl beneath the debris and, 
try! working a passage along- 
side and over Cooper, release 
him stone by stone; 


Fletcher at once volun- 
teered for this task, and it was 
only after two hours' continu- 
ous effort that Cooper was 
pulled dear. 

. “Great patience and skill 
were retptiraT, read tire cita- 
tion. “and, in,the course of the 
work, Fletcher's body was 
completely under tins Mi with 
hisheaddoac to Cooper's feet 
Throughout the operation 
Fletcher was exposed to the 
risk of being crushed to death 
either by a second fell or by a 
settling down of the first fen, 
and he performed his task 


own 


“Fletchert action was a 
brave one involving great risk 
to his own life and, indeed, in 
tie latter stages of tie work his 
position was more dangerous 
than Cooper’s’'. 


Fletcher left mining in 1935 
to become an insurance agent 


He never served in the Forces, 
and, in 1948, joined the ctv3 
service, working for the De- 
partment of Health and Social 
Security until his retirement 
in 1968. Gardening and mo- 
toring .were his hobbies. He 
was awarded the Queen’s 
Silver Jubilee Medal in 1977. 

He is survived by his wifi; 
Mildred, and their son.

Perhaps you will kindly 
aBow me space to refer further 
to my old friend and theatrical 
partner for many years, the 
late Hermione Badddey (fol- 
lowing your obituary of her.

“Totie" in ■ her day was 
guaWy the finest revue ar- 
tiste of them all, equalled if 
not exceeded by only Beatrice 
Lillie. It was our misfortune, 
especially tie West End’s, tiat 
she chose to make her home 
mainly in the United States 
during the latte part of her 
life. 


Revue was no longer “in^as

THE ARTS 


The lengthy partnership of Andrew Davis 
(left) and the Toronto Symphony is coming to 
an end, and their European tour which began 
last night looks to be testing even by the usual 
standards: interview by Richard Morrison 

Striving to make an 
international name 


For .toe Toronto Symphony 
(“Orchestra’' was officially 
dropped from the title in 
I9j34) and -toe Englishman, 
who has been their, music 
director for the Iasi 1 1 years, 
toe three-week tow which 
began at the Edinburgh Festi- 
val last night. - and which 
' brings them to the Proms on 
Monday, carries with it ah 
enormous burden of aspira- 
tions and uncertainties. Even 
under normal circumstances 
North American orchestras 
regard a European tour as a 
high-pressure examination of 
their quality, a morale-boost- 
ing challenge for their players, 
and a focus for wider commer- 
cial and diplomatic links. But 
this tour has still greater 
significance: last October An- 
drew Davis resigned his musi- 
; cal directorship. He goes at the 
end of next season. 

Inevitably, then, the Can- 
adians wiU regard their Euro- 
pean concerts as representing 
the summation of their 
relationship with him. while 
he would not be human if he 
did not hope - that the -tour 
reminded British and conti- 
nental managements of his* - 
conducting prowess. 

There . is not quite the 
turnover in principal conduc- 
tors that there is m football- 
dub . managers, but for a 
conductor to bc tied to an 
orchestra for 13 seasons is 
unusual. Davis's immediate 


predecessors. Seiji Ozawa and 
Karel A need, each stayed Tour 
-years. But. as Davis admits, 
.his career to date has been 
quite out of the ordinary. 
“You must remember that 
when l accepted the Toronto 
job I'd only been earning my 
living as a conductor for four 
years." He had just turned 30 
and was still best known as the 
King's College Cambridge or- 
gan scholar who bad played 
harpsichord with the Acad- 
emy of St Martin-in-thc- 
Fields, and whose “big break" 
in 1970 had come in the 
classic fashion: taking over a 
BBC performance of the 
Glagolitic Mass at the last 
moment, 

. The appointment to direct 
one of North America's largest 
musical organizations was a 
shock: “At the time, though, I 
did desperately want an or- 
chestra of my own. . and I 
thought 'Okay. 1 know I can 
do this*. Let's face it. three- 
quarters of my career has now 
been spent in Toronto." 

He threw himself into the 
job. becoming an -avuncular, 
soon-bearded (and later rather 
burly) figure who perhaps 
exaggerated his Englishncss to 
fit in with ’the Canadian 
public's idea of what a British 
conductor should be like. “1 
never regretted turning down 
outside offers, because a mu- 
sic director should always owe 
first allegiance ~lo his or- 


chestra. I never do less thin IS 
weeks a year with mine. The 
Toronto Symphony now is 
very much a reflection of my 
musical personality." 

Asked to assess his achieve- 
ments in Toronto. Davis will 
point primarily to repertoire 
and to educational projects. 
The latter involve a vast 
number of children’s work- 
shops and youth concerts and 
the running of a top-quality 
youth' orchestra — an cduca^ 
tional commitment, in short, 
on <t scale British orchestras 
could never contemplate, ft 
also involves Davis in some 
rather bizarre pursuits: dress- 
ing up in a lion's costume, for 
instance, to conduct the Car- 
nivuf of the Animals. “Bring- 
ing music to children in a way 
that is fresh and not didactic, 
except in a cunningly con- 
cealed way. is a challenge I 
enjoy, very much", he says. 
The investment of money and 
talent makes good business 
sense too: “You're building 
your future audience here''. 

As for repertoire, the enor- 
mous Canadian emphasis on 
selling subscription scries 
rather than individual con- 
certs allows Davis consid- 
erable breadth in program-- 
ming. And. as he says. “In 
Toronto I really am the boss. I 
hire and fire. 1 choose all the 
programmes, the guest' con- 
ductors and artist I'm 
responsible for a whole city's ' 


orchestral diet. And over the 
years I have been there I think 
the Toronto public have be- 
come more sophisticated and 
adventurous. You have to 
compare It favourably with 
London.” 

His own tastes incline him 
to the late Romantics — 
Mahler. Elgar. Sibelius, Niel- 
sen — but during the coming 
season he directs and plays in 
. Saint-Saens's Organ Sym- 
phony. he conducts Acis and 
Ualaica . and the names of 
Dupaic. Bruch. Bax and 
Tippett (the Canadian pre- 
miere of The Mask of Time > 
feature along with many 
contemporary Canadian com- 
posers and. of course, the 
standard classical fare. It is. 
therefore, rather a pity that the 
repertoire chosen for the tour 
should be comparatively con- 
ventional (Edinburgh asked 
fora double bill of Stravinsky 
dramatic works, to be given 
tomorrow, but at the Proms a 
Mozart piano concerto and 
Mahler's Ninth Symphony are 
on the programme). 

No relationship between 
principal conductor and or- 
chestra is ever trouble-free, 
and one stretching over more 
than a decade is liable to build 
up considerable antagonisms. 
At Toronto recently Davis's 
life has been none too easy. 
“I've made a lot of mistakes, 
in musical and other terms. 



Diversification, Toronto style: Stravinsky's The Soldier's Tale* to be given at the 
Edinburgh Festival tomorrow, with Frank August}' n (left), Jeff Hy slop and Karen Kain 


but I've also given a tremen- 
dous amount of myself to the 
orchestra and city”, he says. 

He can hardly be held 
responsible for some of the 
problems. Though aspiring to 
live near the top of the North 
American orchestral league, 
the Toronto Symphony is 
relatively underfunded' (a 
mere 12 million dollars) and 
low-salaried compared with 
near neighbours like Chicago 
and New York. Good players 
have been poached. The or- 
chestra. moreover, is almost a 
stranger these days to the 
major recording companies, 
and the phenomenal success 
of its arch-rival in Montreal 
under Charles Dutoil has 
increased toe players' frustra- 
tions (a possible long-term 
relationship with EMI was 
greeted with extraordinary re- 
lief). Though Davis did lead a 
famous trip to China in 1978. 
the Toronto Symphony does 
not tour as much as some 
orchestras (“any major tour 
these days costs well over a 


million dollars", says Davis). 
And perhaps the biggest dis- 
appointment has been the 
move four years ago to the 
Roy Thomson Hall, the 
orchestra's space-age new 
home in central Toronto. It is 
now considered to have the 
poorest acoustics of any major 
concert hall in Canada. 

Inevitably these aggrava- 
tions led to speculation that 
Davis was being pushed from 
h>5job. and he nimsclf told a 
Canadian newspaper that the 
orchestra's board was “not 
unwelcome of a change of 
horses". But he now strongly 
maintains that the decision 
was completely his own. “The 
point is really that 1 3 years is a 
long period. It's time to di- 
versify my life, to work more 
in Britain particularly and 
Europe generally." He has al- 
ready established good guest- 
conductor relationships, nota- 
bly with the Philharmonia 
(“we get on like a house on 
fire"). Now he also has lime to 
develop his opera interests. 


which (despite his Salome at 
Co vent Garden earlier this 
year, and his long-standing 
Glyndeboumc connections) 
have lain comparatively la- 
tent. "Don Giovanni at 
Glyndeboumc this summer 
was only my second Mozan; I 
am doing Figaro, also with 
Peter Hall, next year in Chi- 
cago. And in 1989 I conduct 
my first Wagner: Tristan in 
Houston. Funny. I never 
thought I would start with 
that: Meistmingcr has always 
been my favourite. Actually ! 
don't know Tristan that well." 

In general, though. Davis 
would like more lime to 
consider the scores he is 
conducting. “I'm looking for- 
ward io retracting a little from 
the diversity of repertoire 
needed at Toronto. I mean. I 
don't want to jet around 
conducting the same 12 
pieces. But to concentrate on a 
slightly smaller repertoire, and 
perhaps to go into it more 
deeply — that would be 
beneficial."

f “Dead corpses don't in any way 
r portray the intimate tragedy of 
what happened", said Jon Snow of 
: 1TN. talking about the news cover- 
age of the Heysel football stadium 
disaster. The delegates at the \ 
i Edinburgh ' International Tele- 
vision Festival nodded, unmoved: 
The chairman of the discussion, 
Robert Kilroy-Silk, invited Snow 
and his -colleagues tp. consider the 
-possibility that violence on. lele-

Hus was sound advice for all 
-potential media victims, as confes- 
sions made throughout the festival 
confirmed. Paul Watson, famous 
for his series of fly-on-the-walj 
documentaries including The Fish- 
ing Party, freely admitted that he 
encouraged his subjects to get 
drunk in order to have them 
behave as grossly as he wished; toe 
producer of toe Rough Justice 
programme which was criticized by 
toe Lord Chief Justice’ for its 
outrageousmethods defended him- 
self by referring to a directive from 
bis department head which specifi- 
cally condoned toe use of “socially 
or legally unacceptable" methods 
in Older to get the story. 

The festival was pervaded by a 
complacency which was apparent 
even to some of its participants. As 
the gruelling 2’/?-hour discussions 




Promenade Concert 

Luxuriating in a 


. succeeded each other, the- tone of' 
toe event began to sound like the 
ami-heroin commercial. So people 
are exploited. $o ethnic minorities 
are marginalized, so women do not 
make proper career progress, so 
community video-makers are star- 
ved of funds, so there is censorship 
in South Africa — so they bad some 
problems. So what? They could 
handle it 

- Television is an enclosed order, a 
narcissistic, obsessive profession 
which avoids contact with the rest 
of society. “These are the real 
people who make real people on 
television look real," announced 
another session chairman, Pano- 
rama'^ Peter Taylor, but no one 
paused to consider toe nature oftoe 
phoney reality that was thus 
disseminated. 

From a hypothetical debate on 
scheduling. Michael Grade on BBC 
I versus John Birt on ITV, came 


Festival theatre 


the view of -the public as an: 
audience, a -passive mass-tobeded- 
from show to show by the carefully 
selected seductive qualities of pro- 
grammes. From a discussion on 
game-shows and documentaries 
came toe view of toe public as a 
resource to be plundered, rifted in 
the ratio of one to five hundred for 
individuals confident, good-look- 
ing and articulate enough to accord 
with teleyision's notion of what a 
real human being is like. Broad- 
casters seldom see the public as 
human beings with equal rights to 
command the attention of their 
fellows. They see them as passive 
and inanimate objects — furniture 
indeed. 

British television has veiy little 
capacity to entertain genuine re- 
sponses from the society it serves. 
British society is extremely apa- 
thetic towards the medium which 
is its primary source of both 


information . and entertainment; 
- Broadcasters allow scraps of access 
programming on minority chan- 
nels, and grudgingly toss crusts of 
finance to toe growing community 
programme sector, but they have 
little genuine commitment to inter- 
action with the public. Instead they 
prefer to hide behind the technical 
complexity of their profession and 
ensure that ordinary people remain 
in ignorance of toe values and 
processes of the medium. Any 
“reaT person who had gained entry 
to the Television Festival would 
probably have been massively 
bored and made contributions of 
toe level of asking why his or her 
favourite programme was not be- 
ing transmitted. 

As pan of this chilling mystifica- 
tion process, television prac- 
titioners deny their own partici- 
pation in society. This was clearly 
shown in the session on toe news 


coverage of the Heysel stadium 
tragedy. Festival delegates were 
shown toe uncut BBC news footage 
of the event in which 40 people 
died; it included shots of distressed 
people waving away cameras, of 
photographers standing in front of 
the stricken calmly snapping away, 
of anguished men who addressed 
toe camera directly and of rioters 
who had masked themselves in 
order not to be recognized on 
television. The professionals chose 
at once to cut these elements of toe 
story, despite toe role that tele- 
vision is known to play in football 
violence. In contrast Graham 
Bright toe Conservative MP for 
Luton South who was also invited 
to compile a news report from toe 
raw footage, chose to include some 
of these scenes, but elected to omit 
the sensational and distressing 
close-ups of the dead and dying. 

When Walter Memcks, toe law- 
yer who chaired the Rough Justice 
session, accepted the job be asked 
the festival organizer for all the 
books, papers and written material 
relating to journalistic ethics in 
broadcasting. There was nothing to 
give him. If any broadcasters had 
ever considered how they should 
interact with society, they had been 
careful never to make their 
thoughts public. The festival was 
.an opportunity to correct this 
deficiency, an opportunity which 
the entire profession spurned in 
favour of considering its own 
interests.

■.' generous, too. and the heat 
from the television lights 
could only have had a bene- 
-ficial effect on the soaked 
promcnadcrs. 

Serge Baudo's conducting 
grew more confident after a 
rather 1 lame account of 
v: . Chabrier's Fspa/ia. The trom- 
- bones spat out their entries 
fiercely enough, but the back- 
, ground rhythms were soggy 


-Vi;and Baudo's relationship with 
the Philharmonia in the final 
„ accelerando rather reminded 
■ me ofihe W.S. Gilbert charac- 
.. . ter who "led his regiment from 
. behind, he found it less 
; ... exciting". 

Things improved markedly 
in a selection from Bizet's 
LWrlesiauu'. It was not the 
.. son of scorching performance 
,■ where the Farandolc dis- 
. appears in a cloud of dust, but 

the steady pace throughout 
did allow the textures space to 
. 1 breathe and be admired. The 
• horns possibly enjoyed toe 
Carillon a shade too much — 


toe tune is with the strings, 
after all — but elsewhere the 
woodwind seized their solo 
.opportunities with character. 

This welcome streak of 
exhibitionism was still more 
pronounced in the final work. 
Falla’s The Three-Cornered 
Hat . Suites I and 2. Baudo, 
worked hard to instil rubato; 
some gutsy bowing from the 
strings brought an appropriate 
peasant-like feel to the Miller's 
Dance and the kaleidoscopic 
finale was feverishly ag- 
gressive. 

Alicia dc Larrocha's playing 
is rarely that, but this most 
graceful of pianists — • so 
nimble in the crossed-hands 
textures of Falla's Nights in 
the Gardens of Spain — per- 
haps demonstrated toe Span- 
ish tradition's subtler side: one 
dependent on carefuj tonal 
gradations and idiomatic 
phrase-shaping. She also 
judged perfectly when to pro- 
vide a background of shim- 
mering filigree and when to 
harden her timbre and project 
a brilliant cascade of passage- i 
work. Her playing in Cesar 
Frances- Symphonic Vari- 
ations was ho less - poetic, 
especially in toe dreamy mid- 
dle section, though, her hands 
only just encompassed the 
bigger chordal splashes.

kaleidoscopic 90 minutes. 

1 can believe that 'it would 
be instantly comprehensible 
on its home ground and that 
there is a logical justification 
for everything that happens; 
but. for anyone unfamiliar 
with the details of the 
Lamontville uprising and the 
cadences of high-speed Af- 
rican speech, the experience is 
like being trapped in a berserk 
roller-coaster. Bits of informa- 
tion flash past as momentary 
signposts in a general blur as 
the show whizzes through 
instantaneous transforma- 
tions and wild changes of 
focus. leaving you glazed and 
thoroughly winded by the end. 

- As the piece is also touring 


dened with two uncontrollable 
children whom she lums out 
of the house, and then turns 
her own back on toe world 
when one of them is found 
murdered. As the Quebec 
slogan has it “Suffer now. pay 
later". 

What raises this harrowing 
story into another dimension 
is Tremblay’s decision .to 
present it through toe eyes of 
five Albenincs, representing 
her from the age of 30 to 70. It 
sounds a technical impossibil- 
ity except as a scries of parallel 
monologues, but Tremblay 
achieves full dramatic con- 
fronation by means of divorc- 
ing chronological from thea- 
trical lime, and taking advan- 
tage of toe fact that the elders 
know more than the younger 
selves, and that there are some 
hideous matters that none of 
them wants to drag into toe 
open. By such means, toe 
memories inside one head 
change into a plot in the 
present tense. 

At first for instance, there 
seems absolutely nothing in 


North America, the thought 
strikes me that it may be 
intended to bewilder western 
spectators: to put them briefly 
in the place of a Zulu peasant 
reaching the white men's terri- 
tory and plunged into a harsh, 
bewildering world oflabyrin- 
thine restrictions and auto- 
matic brutality. 

If you surrender to this 
experience and stop expecting 
the usual theatrical courtesies, 
the show has a savage impacL 
As you watch toe company 
queuing up for prison ad- 
mission or X-rays, doing 
everything at the panic- 
stricken double, kicked and 
abused for their very exis- 
tence, it is impossible not to 
imagine how you would re- 
spond if you changed places 
with them. 

This viewpoint, however. 


common between the five 
women: the youngest under- 
going paroxysms of rage, toe 
oldest staring vacantly into a 
dead television screen. Asthey 
start conversing, rehearsing 
old arguments, welcoming 
their sister (the only other 
character), toe Hnks start 
developing, showing how the 
enraged 45-year-old. mother 
became the carefree waitress 
of 50. and then the drugged 
life-hating recluse of 10 years 
later. There arc also extraor- 
dinary moments when all five 
fuse into a single self At toe 
memory of beating the daugh- 
ter almost to death, all the 
voices come together in an 
exclamation like a rifle shot 
And toe final image is of the 
group drawn downstage and 
lifting their arms towards toe 
moon. The play draws on toe 
tragic contrast between a self 
that feels always the same and 
an external character th3t can 
change beyond recognition. 

This, more than the docu- 
mentary detail, is the sense 
that informs Bill Glassco's 
beautifully orchestrated pro- 


does not cover everything in 
the show. Some passages are 
dearly intended as fierce sat- 
ire. others as touching epi- 
sodes from private life, but 
they are simply obliterated 
under the generalized spec- 
tacle of top dogs and under- 
dogs. At one moment the 
theatre represents a protest 
meeting, at another a prison 
concert.- each vanishing before 
you have been able to adjust to 
the new setting. What is never 
in doubt is the tremendous 
proficiency of toe company, 
their dances drilled to a peak 
of predsion and their voices 
swelling into the consoling 
harmonies of work-songs and 
laments in the very act of 
chain-gang labour and phys- 
ical combat.

like those of Clare Coulter, , 
Susan Coyne and the embat- ; 
tied Jpy Coghill are typical of I 
the Tarragon's companies, 
then it is also an actors : 
powerhouse. 

Stylistically. David 
French's Salt Water Moon 
bumps back to familiar terri- 
tory. It is a naturalistic North 
American porch play, showing 
a Newfoundland boy talking 
his way back into the fevourof 
toe girl he left behind. On 
those terms, it is extremely 
well put together: and. so far 
as the background' is con- 
cerned. the territory is new. 
The period is 1926; and along 
with his evocation of ghosts 
Mr French also shows the 
lingering effect of toe 19 14- 1 8 
war on the two families. He 
projects a society that is at 
once utterly remote and up to 
its neck in 20th-century his- 
tory. just as its characters (Ian 
Tyler and Julia Lewis) belong 
as much to toe Irish past as to- 
the New World. 


Peter Darrell, artistic director 
of the Scottish Ballet, has 
decided to relinquish that 
post. He feels that after 30 
years running the company 
and its predecessor. Western 
Theatre Ballet, he would like 
to concentrate his energies on 
his creative work. He will 
maintain his links with the

company and has accepted the 
title of founder choreographer. 

Scottish Ballet is now seek- 
• ing a new artistic director, 
someone who will maintain 
toe company's strong basis in 
classical ballet while continu; 
ing Darrell's policy of bringing 
in new work for a balanced 
repertory.

over working 
with Savage 


By JQI Sherman 


Leading obstetricians at the 
London Hospital have said 
they will find it difficult to 
work with Mis Wendy Savage 
after the inquiry into her 
professional competence 
which resulted in her 16- 
month suspension. 

They have claimed that it 
would be impossible for her to 
be integrated back into the 
department immediately and 
have suggested that she is 
given a different post fora few 
years. 

- Last month an inquiry team 
cleared Mrs Savage, who is 
■ also senior lecturer at the 
hospital's medical school of 
allegations of professional 
i incompetence. 

But a further panel due to 
report before her return to 
work next month is now 
looking at. the working 
arrangements within the ob- 
stetric department. The in- 
quiry team expressed concern 
over poor working relation- 
ships between Mrs Savage and 
her colleagues. 

The panel, chaired by Mrs 
Alison Munro, chairman of 
Chichester Health Authority, 
will determine how Mrs Sav- 
age. wfll work with her four 
consultant colleagues. 

Mr John HartgilL senior 
consultant obstetrician at the 
London Hospital said yes- 
terday; “The feet that this has 
been thrashed out in public 
has made it virtually impos- 
sible to compromise in any 
way. In trying to maintain 
some dignity we have lost any 
future chance of working with- 
out bias on both sides." - 


Professor Gedis 
Grudzinskas, Mrs Savage's 
head of department, criticized 
her supporters forspreadiog 
misinformation about the 
department 

“A serious internal depart- 
ment matter which led to the 
suspension of Wendy Savage 
has been misrepresented as a 
gender struggle and a struggle 
between high technology and 
low technology, which is to- 
tally unrelated to this particu- 
lar problem,” Professor 
Grudzinskas said. The mis- 
information had resulted in 
unnecessary anxiety to several 
patients. 

The professor said he would 
accept the recommendations 
of the inquiry into the depart- 
ment, but he referred to 
reports that Mrs Savage had 
publicly said she would not 
work in the academic unit 
headed by himself He also 
said that Mrs Savage had 
called for his resignation. 

Mrs Savage's solicitor, Mr* 
Brian Raymond, denied yes- 
terday that Mrs Savage bad at 
any time either called for the 
professor’s resignation or said 
that she would not be pre- 
pared to work with him or any 
of her colleagues. 

Mr Raymond said that the 
professor’s idea of a break 
with the department had been 
suggested before the original 
inquiry was held and was 
“completely unacceptable" to 
Mrs Savage. 

Last week the consultants 
broke a 16-month silence by 
defending their department's 
policy in a letter to The Times.

It is the West that exercises

The terms of a licence for

About half the 27 reactors of 
the Chernobyl type in the 
Soviet Union have been shut 


down while modifications are 
made to prevent the safety 
systems from being switched 
off in the way they were before 
the accident.

ended commitment to further 
aid as the sc tie of need 
becomes apparent. 

Mrs Thatcher has sent a 
personal message to President 
Paul Biya, expressing her con- 
cern and pledging immediate 
help. 

Britain was prepared to 
send experts in toxic gases as 
well as protective clothing, 
medical supplies and gas 
masks. Baroness Young, the 
Minister of State at the For- 
eign Office, said. 

“We recognise this is an 
appalling natural disaster in a 
very remote area." 1 

The United States, Israel 
France, and Switzerland have 
sent or are sending aid teams, 
and Spain, Japan and Italy 
have also offered help. 

Scientists from the United 
States Geological Survey will 
arrive at the disaster scene in 
the next day or two after an 
invitation from the Cameroo- 


nian government. They will 
join French scientists already 
there to analyze the causes of 
the disaster. 


The gas eruption is being 
likened to an incident at Lake 
Mounoun, in the same moun- 
tain range, two years ago, 
when 36 people were killed. 

Mr Paul Krumpe, one of the 
US Geological Survey team, 
said a small landslide into that 
lake may have produced a 
release of carbon dioxide from 
the lakebed sediment that 
caused it “to explode like 
achampagne bottle."

yesterday. 

The first team, which in- 
cludes forensic pathologists, 
will try to find the exact cause 
of death of the gas victims. 
The second team will examine 
the volcanic lake and try to 
determine the cause and na- 
ture of the gas eruption. This 
group includes Dr Joseph 
Devine, an expert on fresh 
water organisms. 

The experts are also ex- 
pected to sample the sediment 
in other lakes in the volcanic 
region to see if an assessment 
could be made of future risks.

Dr Gavin Bowyer, an army 
doctor, lived in Worn for 10 
weeks in 1982 while collecting 
snails for research into the 
spread of the tropical disease

He said yesterday that he 
and his three student col- 
leagues from Cambridge were 
lodged in the Catholic mission 
schoolhonse — “four good 
walls and a roof, hot then we 
had previously been camping 
in the rain forest so it seemed 
very comfortable to ns”. 

He said Warn was an ex- 
hibition village. “The Govern- 
ment was rather proud of it 
and was inclined to show it off 
as an example of village life.” 

Otherwise, he said, the na- 
tives — who spoke some 
French, En glish, and pidgin 
English as well as their tribal 
dialect — were left very much 
to themselves. 


“As far as providing facil- 
ities, the Government was 
content that the area should

The White House spokes- 
man said: “We certainly have

activities worldwide, “The 
capability is still there, to do 
so.” He died as an example

contemplating, possible joint 
action with France to drive

Washington deafly expects 
scepticism in Europe about its 
warnings at a tune when 
Colonel Gadaffi has kept a low 
profile and there has been * 
lull in international terrorism. 

But Mr Walters win emph-

rocket attack on the British 
base at Akrotirl' Cyprus, and 
also involved in abortive 
plans to bomb another disco

to persuade the European

Prospects for lower base 
rates in Britain are still 
thought to be rather gloomy, 
although some analysts see 
scope for a reduction before 
the annual meetings of the 
International Monetary Fund 
and World Bank in Wash- 
ington, at the end of next 
month. 

The dollar held up well in 
the foce of the prime rate cuts, 
despite market doubts on 
whether the Bundesbank* 
West Germany's central bank, 
will announce a reduction in 
interest rates at its council 
meeting on Thursday. 

A token cut in the Lombard 
rale from 5.5 percent to 5 per 
cent is widely expected, al- 
though a reduction in the 
discount rate, now at 3.5 per 
cent, will be a surprise. 

The dollar rose to 
DM2.0475 from DM2.0420 
against the mark, and also 
gained ground against the yen, 
rising from 15335 to 154.75. 

The pound, which lost

prime rate announcements. It 
dosed 45 points down at

The sterling index was 0.2

Heron International, 
Britain’s second largest pri- 
vate company, whose chair- 
man is Mr Gerald Ronson, is 
making a Peseta 10 billion 
(£50 million) cash offer for the 
property division of Spain's 
Rumasa Group, the financial 
and industrial conglomerate 
which was taken over by the 
Spanish Government in 1983 
on the verge of collapse. 

Since that date the Spanish 
Government has been pri- 
vatizing Rumasa’s assets. The 
Heron offer is for one of the 
last -remaining pans of the 
Rumasa combine which in- 
cluded banking, finance, ho- 
tels. retailing and sherry 
businesses. 

The market had been 
expecting Heron to make an 
acquisition, probably in the 
UK. The company said in its 
year end report that it was 
looking for expansion in the 
□ext year or two but that it was 
difficult given the high levels 
of the UK and US stock 
markets and its position as a 
cash buyer.

Other property interests

Heron already has a large 
development in Barcelona 
and other property interests in

this as a unique opportunity to

Highams, the private com- 
pany making a £37 million bid 
for the Manchester Ship Canal 
Company, is leaving its 625p 
per share cash offer open while 
building up its voting rights in 
the canal company. 

Highams said yesterday that 
it has 54 per cent of the voting 
shares in the canal company. 
But the structure of the 
shareholding, which gives 
small shareholders a dis- 
proportionate number of 


.votes, means Highams only 
has 38 per cent of the voting 
rights. It also controls 56 per 
cent of the publicly-held 
equity. % 

Highams says that it has 
virtually won control of the 
company, a statement which 
is denied by the Manchester 
Ship Canal Company's board. 

One of the unusual features 
of the bid is that 3,000 of the 
canal company’s 8,868 
shareholders cannot be traced 
and their voting rights will 
never be exercised. 

Many of the shares were 
held by the same fomilies for 
almost 100 years and have 
been lost Highams figures for 
the number of voting rights it 
can exercise takes into ac- 
count the lost shareholdings. 

Gresham House, the invest- 
ment trust has rejected 
Highams offer as “derisory." 
And the MSCC has support 
from the Harrap Group, its 
second largest shareholder. 

Die attraction for Highams, 
which is the private textile 
company of Mr John Whit- 
taker, the chairman of Peel 
Holdings, the retail warehouse 
developer, is the 300-acre 
Barton site close to Manches- 
ter city centre. 

Highams wants to develop 
the site with retailing, a pro- 
posal unlikely to find favour 
with the Labour controlied- 
Man Chester City Council, 
which bolds 1 1 of the 21 seats 
on the canal company's board.

half of 1986. Pretax profits of 
£3.6 million were reported 
yesterday compared with last

BET, the industrial services 
group, won control of 
Brengreen Holdings yesterday 
even before it had posted its 
revised offer document to 
shareholders. 

Having bought a 28 per cent 
stake in Brengreen from Mr 
Michael Ashcroft's Hawley 
Group last week, BET said 
that its original offer had 
received 27.9 per cent accep- 
tances. With other purchases 
made in conjunction with its 
advisers. Baring Brothers and 
NM Rothschild, BET can now 
speak for 57.7 per cent of the 
shares. 


The original agreed offer of 
45p per share ora one-for-nine 
share swap remains open 
while the new bid document is 
finalized which values 
Brengreen at £32 million. BET 
is now offering 50p a share, 
the price paid to Mr Ashcroft, 
while maintaining the paper 
alternative at one-for-nine. 

Mr Neil Ryder, a spokes- 
man for BET, said work was 
also continuing on a new offer 
document for HAT, the build- 


ing industry services group. 
Lari week BET raised its offer I 
to £1 14 million, but still met

better than anticipated. You will see mat after-tax profits lor this period were 
$17,617,000. an Increase of 44 percent overthe previous half-year period’s 
return of$12,243,000. Earnings pershare grew to 11.0 cents. Assets under

Inquiry by 
EEC into 
‘fertilizer 
dumping 9 

From Jonathan Braude 
Brussels 

The competition directorate 
of the European Economic 
Community is expected to 
open a ' new anti-dumping 
inquiry into s number of 
unnamed American suppliers 
of the liquid fertiliser, urea 
ammonium nitrate (UAN), in 
the next few days. 

The inquiry will be into a 
complaint brought by the EEC 
Fertiliser Industry Associ- 
ation (CMC). 

The CMC case, if success- 
ful, could lead to firmer prices 
for tbis product during the 
1987-88 fertiliser season, air 
though EEC sources have 
emphasized that, the price is 
also subject to fluctuations in 
the value of the dollar and ibe 
cost of natural gas-based 
feedstocks. - 

CMC — its members in- 
dude UAN producers such as 
IQ, BASF and several Dutch 
and French companies — al- 
leges ihatsome United States 
companies have been selling 
the product at prices well 
below those in the American 
market. 

The sudden influx of 
American supplies over the 
past year, after a three-year 
absence from the EEC market, 
has caused a considerable loss 
of market share fra* domestic 
producer*. 

France, which accounts for 
70 per cent of. the UAN 
market in the EEC, imported 
about 70 000 tonnes nitrogen 
equivalent, IS per cent of 
consumption, from the US in 
tbe 1985-86 season to 
February.

Leaner and fitter BSR is back on course 


BSR International finds it 
almost as hard to chart its 
progress as do analysts, no 
doubt because of its depen- 
dence on the volatile US 
market However, the pun- 
dits are still tzying to find 
their feet in the quagmire of 
the group's fortunes. 

Prospects looked good in 
1983 and 1984, when re- 
results raced ahead 


m a 1982 loss of £17.4 
million, to profits of £ 20.8 
million and £26.8 million 
respectively. A 1982 
ratio nalizatio n programme 
to 'be having the 
effect 

• However, hopes were 
dashed last year, when the 
group plunged into losses. 
The sharp fell in the com- 
puter-related market was to 
Uame. Moves are albeit now 
to make BSR less dependent 
on high volume, low marg in 
business. 

Although yesterday’s in- 
terim results saw the group 
hack in profit, there is still a 
question mark over 'the 
strength of the recov e ry and 
the potential of new products. 

Money is being invested in 
higher margin areas. Power 
supplies, cellular radio and 

iwmriatwrl fnirmurniratintx 

products and electronic dis- 
play systems are obvious 
recipients. Next year, the 
company hopes that commu- 
nications will be con tending

matdy half of tbssrowth was 
attributable to capital 
appreciation of investments 
and half to new funds. Some 
$200 million of these were 
“separate account*” such as 
pension funds and founda- 
tions. lire rest was sales of 
mutual funds (unit trusts). 

The company is generating 
cash at a prodigious rate and 
now has liquid resources of 



for the title of biggest profit 
earner. 

The full order book owes 
. more to a genuine pick up in 
:• demand rather than a further 
reshed uling of business from 
: -last year. Ax present, BSR is 
playing safe and is resisting 
the temptation to expand its 
manufacturing capacity. In 
the longer term, acquisitions 
remain a priority. 

BSR is now leaner and 
fitter. The balance sheet is 
healthier and in time Swan 
.Housewares may be floated 
off a la Tenby Industries. 
However, a leaner company 
' may make a tastier morsel for 

- a predator. 

BSR, to feel less vulner- 
able, needs to avoid upsetting 
■the market. Expectations for 
the present year are under 

- £15 million, having been £20 
minion. 


Looking forward to next 
year, more than £20 million 
is needed to keep people 
happy. The low rating, about 
half the market's average, 
indicates that there ax? s&Q 
sceptics around. 

TempletoH 

By most of tbe criteria by 
which fond managers are 
measured, Templeton, Gal- 
braith & Hansberger has 
done well in the six months to 
June 30. The interim results 
announced yesterday showed 
a pretax profit increase of 47 . 
per cent to $23.2 milli on 
(£15.6 million) on turnover 
which was up 66 pfir cent to 
568.6 milli on. 

Assets under management 
grew by S 22 billion from the 
end of 1985 to $9. 1 billion at 
the interim stage. Approxi- 


(Hgamzatton,* 
most probably in the UK 
after the big bang. Whik the 
group's investment record is 
excellent, most of its success 
is attributed to one man, its 
founder and leading light, Mr 
John Templeton, who is 73. 

He is responsible for 
ma na g ing 56 billion erf* mu* 
tual funds. But the $3.1 
billion of separate foods is 
managed by other pro- 
fessionals in foe firm, includ- 
ing security analysts. And 
while he may get most de- 
cisions right, such as invest- 
. ing in Spanish banks, the 
group missed out in West 
Germany because he did not 
like German accounting. 

At a price of 213p, the 
shares are not out ofline with 
similar vehicles.

Prospects for the rest of 1986 

In Hong Kong stable economic conditions prevailed during the first half. The stock market was firmer and the higberlevel 
of property prices achieved after last year’s strong gains was maintained. Declining interest rates, and an exchange rate 
which continued to be linked to the U.S. Dollar, resulted in an improvement in the competitive position of the 
manufacturing sector. There was a sharp increase in domestic exports, though to some extent this was offset by a decline in 
the value of re-exports. Demand for consumer finance remained strong but although a limited number of large scale 
financing projects began to come on stream overall loan demand was sl uggish

170p on the Dr Pepper deal, 
but Rowntnee fell 8p to 375p 
on small selling. Expansion 
hopes boosted Lamont Hold- 
ings r5p to I75p and specu- 
lative demand excited 
Wessoe, another old takeover 
candidate, up 14p to 108p. 

Stores were selectively sup- 
ported with Freemans up 6pto 
450p. Reed Exeatifre contin- 


Sharpty higher profits sup- 
ported Aspen Conummka- 
tions at 333p and CVD , 
Incorporated at 175p, both np 
10p, but Ryan International 1 
softened lttp to 33p after | 
slightly disappointing news, i 


Recent disappointing state- 
ments unsettled Ration at 20p 
and Sangers Photo 79p, both 
down Sp, but Dewey Warren 
rallied Sp to 80p. Recent 
expansion moves helped Can- 
non Street to a 4p rise to 139p, 
but the absence of bid 
developments left DJ Alarms 
down 7p to 98p.

By Amanda Gee Smyth 

Pension funds in Britain 
and foe US -have increased in 
size by 500 per cent in foe past 
10 years, according to a survey, 
published today. The survey, 
on the growing role of pension 
funds in domestic and inter- 
national financial markets, 
was conducted by The Econo- 
mist Intelligence Unit 

By 1983, foe top 300 Ameri- 
can money managers con- 
trolled funds worth more than 
$2,000 billion, the survey. The 
Challenge of Private Pension 
Funds, says. 

About 50 per cent of invest- 
ment fund portfolios in Brit- 
ain and North America are 
invested in shares. Neverthe- 
less, the American pension 
funds invested more than $1 
billion last year on. fixed- 
interest Eurobonds, a figure 
that could double in 1986, 
according to the report 

It points out that ageing 
populations will affect spend- 
ing on government pensions 
relative to available national 
resources, with developed 
countries seeing old age 
dependency ratios - soaring in 
the next century. 

For the big seven industrial- 
ized countries, the peak will be 
reached in 50 years’ time. 

The role of fund managers is 
therefore increasingly im- 
portant as they contribute 
immensely to the improve- 
ment and stability of national 
capital markets, the survey 
says. 

If real growth rates are 


BET strong runner in 
the conglomerate race 

BET used to be a ragbag: here and in the United States. Some 


BET used to be a ragbag: 
now that it has introduced some logic 
into its operations, it is almost harder 
to place. After the disappointment of 
losing SGB, Nicholas Wills, the 
second generation chief executive 
who has transformed BET, won the 
second leg of his summer treble 
yesterday by clinching the acquisition 
of Brengreen Holdings, the industrial 
cleaning group. He has already made 
an agreed takeover of the Shorrock 
intruder alarm business. But, despite 
aid from Michael Ashcroft's Hawley, 
he has yet to crack the tougher nut of 
the HAT group. 

Mr Wills, under the watchful eye of 
chai r man Hugh Dundas, has d one 
exactly what he said he would. BET 
now has five divisions aiming at 


strong market positions. In the pro* 
cess, BET has sold £250 million of its 
old businesses, many finally owing 
more to sentiment than logic, and has 
spent getting on for £450 million 
building up its chosen strengths in 
industrial services, construction, 
transport, publishing and (not yet 
quite logically) electronics and leisure. 

The results have started to show in 
earnings per share, up almost a 
quarter at last month's count, al- 
though much of this was due to tax 
management. The puzzle is what 


here and in the United States, Some 
are derided, others lionised. Conglom- 
erates such as Hanson Trust and Sir 
Owen Green’s BTR, are eating other 
conglomerates and spitting out the 
bones. In Lord Hanson's case, dis- 
memberment is the primary skill. 

Two qualities separate the eaters 
from the eaten. Diversified groups 
which have bought into other in- 
dustries, usually because of limited 
prospects on their own, rarely turn out 
to be worth as much as the sum of 
their parts. Industrial holding com- 
panies. for all the fine words about 
management, tend in maturity to 
deliver the average of the industries 
they serve. This is the Achilles' heel of 
groups such as Allied Lyons. Others 
struggle to reproduce the dynamism of 
their founders. 

The successful are essentially finan- 
cial operations that maintain their 
aggression, although they need basic 
good management in the background. 
Hanson has to mount ever greater 
takeover bids to sustain its 
momentum.

It remains to be seen how BET (or 
for that matter Grand Metropolitan) 
will develop. Are their leaders 
recreating them or just preparing a

way, the combination of market 
pressure and management effort can- 
not be bad for shareholders.

In Europe, apart from Brit- 
ain, banks rather than pension 
funds have generally played 
the intermediary role in 
providing funds for industry. 


providing funds for industry. 
Pension funds as institutional 
investors - are - almost non- 
existent m Italy and France, 
the report says. 


In the tangled web of international 
trade agreements, where each rule is 
matched by a clutch of exceptions, the 
proof of the dumping is in the pricing. 
The problem is what to take as a fair 
starting price in the exporter's domes- 
tic market. For that determines 
whether, after allowing for export 
costs, a product is being sold too 
cheap in foreign markets. 

Monday's decision by the European 
Commission to impose provisional 
duties of up to 15.8 per cent on 
Japanese photocopier imports again 
questions the justification for such 
measures. Dumping is unfair and 
breaks one of the basic ground rules 
for a global trading system. There is, 
however, a small step between punish- 
ing the dumper and penalising the 
successful foreign competitor. The 
prescriptions used to calculate the fair 
domestic price can virtually guarantee 
thatthe dumping case will be proven. 

Anti-dumping measures are the 


respectable way to introduce selective 
import. restraints, while preaching the 
gospel of free trade. And for the 
companies concerned. How much 
easier to point the finger at unfair 
practices rather than to admit an 
inability to cope with competition? 

Japanese businessmen were quick 
yesterday to attack the new duty as 
part of a “get tough” approach to 
Japan over its trade surplus. Most 
European rivals do not manufacture 
the small and slower speed copiers in 
question. Those that do usually have 
ties with Japanese companies, they 
said. Not so, countered the market 
leader, Rank Xerox, which brought 
the case with four other community 
manufacturers. They argue that it is 
precisely because of dumping that 
more European manufacturers have 
been unable to become established in 
the burgeoning photocopier market 
For the consumer, the upshot is that 
prices will rise.

Microwave accuracy 
with car Speedmeter 


mm 


Using microwave technology 
developed for radar and guided 
. missiles, Pfessey Is bringing new 
accuracy to the measuring of 
speed in car manufacturers' 
rigorous testing programmes. 

Called the Plessey Speed- 
metei; the new device revolu- 
tionises car testing in many 
aspects, including furi-per- 
mile measurements required 
by law in most countries. 

A tiny doppler module 
under the vehicle sends out a 
signal that bounces off the road 
and returns. The different 
character of the outgoing and 
returning microwaves indi- 
cates speed with a precision 
hitherto unattainable.

Tests can be conducted 
without wheel slip or bounce 
causing false readings. Because 
there are no moving parts in

reliability is extremely high. 

Among the companies in- 
terested are Vfalkswagen, who 
have tested the equipment 
under all types of road condi- 
tions and are highly impressed. 

So was Richard Noble when 
his Thrust 2 broke the world 
land speed record Tor Britain in 
Nevada in 1983, with the 
Plessey Speedmeter aboard. 


Plessey now has a range of mifi- 
tary and rugged computer 
modules based on the popular 
VMEbus. They're a natural , 
development of the existing 
product range which includes-' 
other military processors and. 
commercial V1V1E cards. 

The new range of cards 
includes a 68020-based 32-hit' 
processor; bringing the power 
and speed of this state-of-the-art | 
microprocessor and (he versa- . I

WATCHMAN FOR CA A 
CROMER RADAR 




The UK Chii Aviation Authority has chosen the Plessey Watchman 
primary radar for its medium range air traffic control requirements.' 


41 

&&■■■■■ ■ ' 



The new aerodynamic Ford 
Granada police concept car for 
the 1990s now being demon- 
strated to police forces through- 
out tire country is equipped with 
a Mobile Data Terminal sup- 
plied by Plessey. 

The law-enforcement ver- 
sion of the Granada has a 
wealth of high technology 
equipment on board, making it 
one of the most sophisticated 
police vehicles on the road. Its 
Plessey Mobile Data Terminal 
effectively provides a built-in 
computer terminal consisting 
of a high-visibility display and 
keyboard for messages. 

It operates over the police 


radio, which provides a high- 
speed data link, to send and 
receive both alphanumeric and 
graphic information to and 
from police headquarters^ 

The equipment is currently 
in use with police forces in 
Sweden. Belgium, Hong Kong, 
the UK, USA and Canada. 


UK companies' competed 
strongly for this system, which 
will be sited on the Norfolk 
coast close to Cromer 
It will provide low-level 
surveillance in the southern 
North Sea with the prime 
objective of monitoring heli- 
copters flying to and from 
North Sea rigs. 

The CAA’s new radar 
station, known as Cromer 
Radar; will be unmanned and 
will feed radar data to a new air 
traffic control facility being set 
upatStansted AiTpon. 
Performance and reliability 



are of prime importance for the ' 
remote station. Watchman- 
radar can meet this require-" 
ment with a single medium-; 
power transmitter, based on a- 
uavelling wave tube. 

Highly efficient ami-clutter.. 
performance, a particular- 
feature of Watchman, is also;- 
vital, as Cromer Radar is sub— 
ject to ground clutter and, at 
limes, heavy sea-returns. 

Plessey was able to meet ther 
extremely tight schedulesei by - 
the CAA. and will undertake, 
the system integration andr 
installation which will cany an - 
on-mounted secondary sur--; 
veillance radar antenna. 

The Ministry of Defence ■ 
has already chosen Watchman ■' 
for use at Royal Air Force * 
airfields and Royal Navy 
stations as well as at the-; 
important airfields’ at Bos*-' 
combe Down, Famborough.^ 
and Bedford,

A SPECIAL REPORT ON 

ZIMBABWE 


(( FOCI TS D 


August 27, 1986 



Living on the edge in Africa’s front line 

PJawtS W «K»nflter Jo onfl 



imbabwe has come 
to the forefront of 
public attention in 
the Jan few months 
because of the lead* 
ing role it has played in the 
campaign for sanctions 
against South Africa. 

Robert Mugabe, the prime 
minister and the dominant 
figure in the country since its 
independence in 1980. was 
outspoken at Che Common- 
wealth summit conference 
earlier this month in pressing 
the case for action of that son. 

It is a policy that comes 
naturally to Zimbabwe be- 
cause of its proximity to South 
.Africa and because of the 
similarities, limited but real, 
in ihe experience of ihe two 
countries. Formerly Rhodesia, 
Zimbabwe came to indepen- 
dence after a protracted and 
bitter struggle between the 
ruling wbiie community and 
the African majority. 

The present government in 
Harare believes a similar pro- 
cess is now under way south of 
the Limpopo and that ft. and 
tbe rest of the international 
community, should do what- 
ever is possible to accelerate • 
the arrival of majority rule 
there. 

The drawback is that the 
Zimbabwean economy is 
heavily dependent on South 
Africa, which is so much 
larger and more powerful, and 
is likely to be severely dam- 
aged by sanctions — not to 
mention retaliatory moves by 
Pretoria. Some 90 per cent of 
Zimbabwe’s imports and ex- 
ports go through South Africa, 
and it is hard to imagine how, 
even with outside help, 
considerable sacrifices can be 
avoided. 

The government neverthe- 
less. appears determined to 
introduce sanctions and has 
begun to prepare public opin- 
ion for their impact. At the 
same time it is looking for 
other trade routes. 

Zimbabwe has itseTf been 
remarkably successful in 
bridging the gulf between 
black and white and creating a 
society in which both have 
their place. When the new 
nationalist government, 
headed by Mr Mugabe, came 
to power in 1980 it took note 
of the importance of the 
whites in the economy of the 
country and. despite its Marx- 
ist rhetoric, decided to adopt a 
pragmatic, rather than a doc- 
trinaire. approach to policy. 

The whites were encouraged 
to stay and nearly half of 
them, about 100.000 out of 
240.000. did. No land was 
expropriated, although some 
was bought at an economic 
price for distribution to Af- 
rican farmers. No business 
was nationalized, though the 
government has acquired a 
controlling interest in some. 

The result was the forging of. 
a consensus between blacks 
and whites in which the blacks 
hold political power, but while 
farmers, businessmen and 
others have considerable free- 
dom to run their affairs as 
before. Needless to say, nei- 


ther side is completely happy, 
some Africans believing that 
too many whiles still hold key 
commercial and professional 
positions, and some, whites 
chafing at too much govern- 
ment control, or inefficiency. 

Bui the Zimbabwean econ- 
omy has retained the basic 
strengths that it had in fbe 
days of Rhodesia. -'based on a 
diverse mix of agriculture 
{where the whites make a 
major contribution}, industry, 
mining ■ and lonrism. Whfle 
much, has been done to ex- 
pand education, health and 
other services for fte Africans, 
there has been a continuity in 
ihe country's economic life 
which has underlain' the fun- 
damental change in- political 
control. 

Harare, the former Salis- 
bury, remains a -weli-ordered 
city with laH modern office 
blocks owned by companies 
and banks, with international 
connections. Significantly, 
two of its mam streets, not for 
apart, are named respectively 
after Saraora MacheJ, the 
revolutionary leader of 
Mozambique, and Cecil 
Rhodes, symbol of white 
imperialism (whose tomb, 
dramatically seL on a hilltop 
south of Bulawayo, is still a 
tourist attraction). 

Beyond its borders,* the 
Zimbabwean government has 
set out to have correct rela- 
tions with South Africa, 
distasteful though it obviously 



Politics and tbe people: Robert Mugabe, tbe prime minister of Zimbabwe, and tbe smiling faces of township children of Harare 


In 1963 the Zimbabwe Af- 
rican People’s Union (Zapu) 
split and dissident members 
formed the Zimbabwe African 
National Union (Zanu). Dur- 
ing the war with the white 
regime there were constant 
differences between the two 
parlies, headed by Joshua 
Nkomo (Zapu) and Mr 
Mugabe (Zanu), and they are 



Public opinion is already 
primed for sanctions, 
considerable sacrifice 
and the possibility of 
South African retaliation 


finds apartheid. Trade has 
been maintained at a high 
level. On the other hand, it has 
had to counter destabilization 
moves by Pretoria, both on its 
own territory and against the 
important route through 
Mozambique to the sea at 
Beira. 

The Renamo rebels fitting 
the Macbel government in 
Maputo (with assistance from 
South Africa) have been so 
successful that Zimbabwean 
troops have had to be de- 
ployed along the road, railway 
and ptpeline'lo protect them. 

The real blackspol in 
Zimbabwean affairs derives 
from the difficulty of reaching 
a stable accommodation be- 
tween the Africans who now 
rule the country, and specifi- 
cally between the two main 
tribes, the Shona. who are 80 
per cent of the population, and 
the Ndebele, who are 20 per 
cent 

Tensions between the two 
go back to die days before Ihe 
arrival of the whites in the last 
century’, when the NdebeJe, 
related to the Zulus, were 
encroaching on Shona terri- 
tory. They surfaced again in 
differences between the lead- 
ers of the African nationalist 
movement in the years before 
independence. 


now almost wholly tri bally 
based. Zanu representing the 
Shona. and Zapu the Ndebele. 

At independence the two 
parties combined to form a 
government, headed by Mr 
Mugabe. But dissatisfaction 
among the minority Ndebele 
soon began to make itself felt, 
and gangs of “dissidents” were 
formed _ul 'Maiabeldand. In 
.1982 Mr Nkomoi was dis- 
. missed. from the: government 
after ^discovery of arins 
caches on a farm near 
Bulawayo. 

■ Ihe dissidents are a mixed 
lot Some have claimed alle- 
giance to Zapu, a source of 
embarrassment to the party 
leadership, which has dis- 
owned them.- Some were at 
one point receiving help from 
South Africa. Others are sim- 
ply - malcontents and 
criminals. 

They were responsible, 
however, for a wave of atroc- 
ities in Maiabeldand. includ- 
ing the kiDing of white 
farmers; this, in turn, led to 
particularly brutal repressioa 
by government forces 
throughout the region. Moat 
notorious was the fifth Bri- 
gade. trained by North Kore- 
ans. which was responsible for 
widespread maltreatment and 
killing of civilians., parti cu-

Iariy Zapu supporters, in 1983 
and 1984. 

More generally, the Zanu- 
dominaled government be- 
haved as though it wanted to 
cow Zapu, or even eliminate it 
altogether. Some response to 
the. activities of the dissidents 
was inevitable, but the state- of 
emergency inherited from the 
pre-independence regime has 
been maintained and its spe- 
cial provisions used to arrest 
and .detain whom the authori- 
ties choose. 

Zapu leaders have been 
detained, kidnapped and tor- 
lurecfc and during last year's 
election campaign young 
Zanu members attempted to 
intimidate Zapu by attacks on 
party offices, tolerated by the 
police. 

Zimbabwe today retains a 
multi-party system — includ- 
ing the Conservative Alliance 
of Zimbabwe headed by Ian 
Smith. Its judiciary has 
proved its independence. But 
the media toe the government 
line, and with the main oppo- 
sition party, under severe pres- 
sure the government 
proclaims its intention of 
moving, ultimately to a one- 
party state. • 

In recent months, tensions 
-have subsided and the situa- 
tion in Matabeleland has been 
calmer. There have been talks 


on unity between Zanu and 
Zapu — whose differences are 
in any case more a matter of 
personalities than of policy — 
and there has been concil- 
iatory talk on both sides. Mr 
Nkomo has abandoned his 
attacks on the government 
and Mr Mugabe has let it be 
known that a one-party state 
will not be imposed on the 
country, but will only come by 
consent. 

The recent release of 10 
detainees, including some 
prominent Zapu members, 
was an important step in the 
process of reconciliation. But 
it has still to be seen whether 
the two parties will ultimately 
be able to come to terms. 

In this, as in other areas, 
much will depend on Mr 
Mugabe. He can legitimately 
take credit for the remarkable 
reconciliation with the whites, 
and for the way in which 
Zimbabwe has avoided many 
of the mistakes made in the 
past by other newly indepen- 
dent African states. 

But his ministers are by no 
means all of the same calibre, 
and he has presided over a 
system which, at its worst, has 
been as repressive towards the 
Ndebele as the previous white 
regime was towards the Af- 
ricans as a whole. 

Peter Strafford 


Tough line on 



The harons of the Inter- 
national Monetary Fond in 
Washington will have gasped 
st the end of July as they 
watched the telex copy coming 
ont of Harare. 

Dr Bernard Chldzero, 
Zimbabwe's minister of fi- 
nance. economic planning and 
development, had just pre- 
sented his annual budget, 
announcing a record deficit of 
£419 miltion, up 51 per cent on 
the previous year and amount- 
ing to 11.7 per cent of gross 
domestic product 

In 1984. the IMF snspended 
the final tranche, worth 125 
million special drawing rights, 
of a loan totalling 300 mjltiou 
sdrs, following Zimbabwe's 
disregard for IMF guidelines 
on budgetary restraint 

Any review of the loan's 
suspension is now seen as 
completely oat of the question. 

Despite the IMF's negative 
appraisal. Zimbabwe's econ- 
omy remains, if not robustly 
healthy, at least resilient 
supported by a vigorous agri- 
cultural, mining ami industrial 
base. 

In April this year. Dr 
Chldzero published the five- 
year national development 
plan, ontlining the 


government's targets for 
development and production in 
all fields. 

Tbe plan envisaged a 
growth rate over tbe period of 
five per cent a slowdown m 
government spending, and an 
emphasis oa the expansion of 
the productive sectors. It 
stated the government's readi- 
ness to work with foreign 
investors by offering increased 
opportunities for reward. 

Foreign investors 
are encouraged 

It was generally welcomed 
for its recognition of hard 
financial realities, in contrast 
to a highly ambitions transi- 
tional plan in 1981 which fell 
flat on its face. 

In the last 30 , months 
Zimbabwe's economy has 
clawed itself out of serious 
doldrums, caused by a 
combination : of . the global 
recession and ii; three-year . 
drought:’-. 

• ' 'Gross ’domestic, product at 
tbe end of 1984 stood at£2318 
million, -and 'rose, by six* per 
cent last year, but is expected 
to drop to a three per cent 


increase this year. Economists 
expect it to ran along at this 
rate for the next five years, 
despite the plan's optimism. 

■ In 1984. foe balance : of 
payments recorded its first 
surplus — £66 million - since 
1976, and a higher surplus is 
expected when fast year's 
figures become available. . . 

Inflation sank to an of- 
ficially estimated 10 per cent 
last year, 1 the lowest since 
independence, largely as a 
result of government brakes on 
private and public sector price 
increases. A rate of 15 per cent 
is expected id the coming year, 
hut it is still considerably 
lower than in any other coun- 
try’ in the region. 

Straitened times are around 
the corner, however, with the 
most serious threat arising 
from a possible shutdown of 
Zimbabwe's trade rontes 
through South Africa. Even 
the most sanguine pT com- 
mentators predict severe 

dklnMtMn... 

Bar-em' without the threat 
of Sputh ' African strangula- 
tion, economic mdicators are 
cause for concern, at least in 
the short to medium-term. -

jvyA The splendid 

^ ^ thing about 

tourism in 
Zimbabwe is 
i FKTTKnT that the coun- 

lr*\ try has not 

been discovered by the mass 
holiday rat race, h is cheap 
and unspoilt, 1 

The tourist business is anx- 
ious to avoid mass holiday 
packages and the ravages they 
impose on both the environ-'- 
mem and on budgets. One 
hotelier at Victoria Falls, the 
best known or Zimbabwe's 
venues, says package-holiday 
tourists foul up the place, 
spend no money, and furtively 
pocket bacon and egg sand- 
wiches at breakfast Decause 
lunch isn't paid for. 

For the middle-income 
earner who wants a touch of 
adventure, Zimbabwe easily 
ranks as one of the most 
absorbing, comfortable, rip- 
off-free and varied visits in the 
world. It is uji exploited be- 
cause it has had guerrilla 
warfare of varying intensities 
for 1 2 years- Its attractions are 
unpublicised, it is far away, 
and costly to reach (about 
£400 from London, return). 

But is it safe? Hostilities in. 
the .western provinces of 
Malabeleland have been

match but have no reserva- 
tions about a camping week- 
end -south of Bulawayo. 

Zimbabwe’s climate is gen- 
tle. sunny and almost devoid 
of extremes. The north, with 
the Zambezi river valley, pro- 
vides. heading east, the Vic- 
toria Falls and a string of small 


resorts on the river banks, and 
then Lake Kariba. Beyond, 
where the river becomes 
placid, there are more resorts, 
hotels and safari camps. 

Along the way there is 
fishing, rafting, three-day ca- 
noe trips, white-water riding, 
hiking, mineral bathing, and 
game watching in conditions 
unmatched in Africa. 

The east has 'a bump of 


mountains doited with game 
parks, hotels, lodges and re- 
sorts alongside highland trout 
streams and lakes m either 
conifer or indigenous vegeta- 
tion. often swathed in mist of 
a distinctly Scottish type. 

The south west, around 
Bulawayo, has game parks, 
mountains, lakes and rivers. It 
was recommended by no less 
than Cecil Rhodes, who chose 


the area above all else in 
southern Africa as bis last 
resting place. 

Zimbabwe is sivage. stark, 
bizarre, rugged and enthrall- 
ing. Its accommodation is the 
opposite. A single room in a 
five-star hotel comes to about 
£30 per person, and scru- 
pulous monitoring by hotel 
autho rites ensures it is genu- 
inely five star. t l 


But there are scores of 
lesser-starred hostelries in. 
and remote from, the urban 
centres. And even the out-of- 
the-way places have, through 
the country's strongly British 
background, a flair tor pubs. 

The most remarkable 
attractions in Zimbabwe are 
the national parks, dug out of 
the bush in almost every 
comer of the countryside. 


Coach tours — unlike the 
dawn grands prix to the lion 
kills in Kenya — arc infre- 
quent. But hired cars are 
available and moderately 
priced, and all but a few of the 
parks* roads are suitable for 
nm-down family saloons. _ 
Accommodation is ridicu- 
lously cheap £6 will secure a 
night in a national park for a 
family of four in an chalet.

Navy fastidiousness. 

In 1984 the government 
created foe national tourist 
development corporation, but 
it has not yet been able to get 
to grips with the country's 
large potential. 

Economists loosely rank 
tourism fifth after the other 
major productive sectors as a 
cash earner. Statistics are un- 
reliable. as, for instance, no 
distinction is made between 
day-trippers from Zambia 
crossing to buy cooking oil 
and fully-fledged, spending 
tourists. 

Promotion has been left in 
the hands of foe major hotel 
corporations. They are having 
a marketing drive in Australia, 
where, said one executive, the 
people have foe money and 
have done Europe and Amer- 
ica and want something else. 

Zimbabwe's hotels could do 
with such visitors. National 
bed occupancy in foe first four 
months of this year climbed 7 
per cent from the previous 
year to 37 per cent. A 55 per 
cent occupancy rate is needed 
for the hotels to break even.

The debt industry 
owes to sanctions 


Cabinet ministers here have 
long acknowledged their debt 
to foe declaration of UDI in 
1965 by foe Rhodesian gov- 
ernment of lan Smith. 

. The sudden closure of inter- 
national markets after foe 
United Nations introduced 
mandatory economic sanc- 
tions against Rhodesia stimu- 
lated a frenetic drive for 
import substitution to limit 
reliance on foreign goods. 

This created a vigorous 
manufacturing industry that 
now includes the only inte- 
grated iron and steel works in 
black Africa, a competitive 
textile industry that can clothe 
the whole country and exports 
prolifically, and assembly 
plants turning out heavy ve- 
hicles for more suited to foe 
local terrain than imported 
European trucks and buses. 

Zimbabwe’s factories and 
plants, concentrated- in the 
capital Harare, in Bulawayo 
in foe west. Kwekwe in foe 
midlands and Mutare on foe 
eastern border, also turn out 
high-quality furniture, 
machinery, building materi- 
als. pharmaceuticals, wood 
and pulp, travel goods, foot- 
wear and printing. 

The country's economy was 
first founded on mining, but 
the forms then became foe 
biggest employers and created 
self-sufficiency in food. - 

The latest step has been the 
advance of foe manufacturing 
industry into becoming the 
biggest contributor to gross 
national product (27 per cent), 
earning 55 per cent of export 
receipts. 

It is calculated that manu- 
facturing now saves foe coun- 
try £480 million each year in 
import substitution. Zim- 
babwe has gone beyond foe 
"shallow'* stage of producing 
consumer articles and has 
progressed to the design and 
production of equipment, 
intermediate goods, machine 
tools and processes. 

In foe 12 months to March 


this year, manufacturing out- 
put grew by an impressive 8.8 
per cent, with the textile 
industry running ahead of foe 
rest with a 31.2 per cent 
increase in volume. 

Foreign-currency shortage, 
a disability of the economy 
that has lasted for 20 years, is 
foe most serious hindrance to 
manufacturing, which absorbs 
44 per cent of an imports. 

' Economists argue that the 
severely outmoded and dilapi- 
dated equipment in most 
’plants rules out a policy of 
capital spending on new ven- 
tures. Instead, the drive for 
bigger exports would far better 
be served by replacement of 1 
existing machinery, they say. 

The publication of the five- 
year development plan pro- 


Textile industry 
is growing fastest 


vided some encouragement 
with its statement that govern- 
ment would implement eco- 
nomic measures in Tax 
policy, incomes and wages 
policies, prices, interest rates, 
customs duties and import 
allocations which are needed 
to stimulate investment*'. 

Dr Chidzero. the Minister 
of Finance, indicated that an 
announcement would be 
made in bis budget statement 
on July 31. Regrettably, he 
made none. Keen interest now 
centres on foe plan’s projec- 
tion of attracting £80 million 
in foreign investment 

According to leading busi- 
ness sources here, it relates to 
foe sorely felt absence in 
Zimbabwe of- an inorganic 
chemicals indusuy. 

The sources say that a force 
plant possibly costing £200 
million, is in foe offing, with 
foe name of foe international 
financing corporation being 
suggested as a partner with foe 
local state.

Mining millions 



For a sector that is largely 
controlled by foreign com- 
panies. Zimbabwe's mining 
industry enjoys a remarkably 
cosy relationship with foe 
government 

The companies dominating 
the scene - Rio Tinto (gold, 
nickel), Lonrho (gold). Union 
Carbide (chrome), Anglo- 
American (nickel, coal) and 
Turner and Newall (asbestos) 
- have all received their share 
of accusations of raping and 
looting the resources of the 
Third World. 

But after six years in in- 
dependent Zimbabwe, foe five 
still provide mining opera- 
tions that bring in 35 per cent 
of the country’s export 
earnings. 

Mining captains declare 
their respect for the minister 
of mines, Richard Hove, foeir 
enthusiasm for the state- 
owned Minerals Marketing 
Corporation (MMO which 
handles foe selling of aD ores, 
and a peaceable relationship 
with the Mining Development 
Corporation - the govern- 
ment's first entry into active 
mining, which made a 
£500.000 profit last year. 

The formation of foe MMC 
jn 1983 created fear for the 
future of the industry as 
Robert Mugabe, foe prime 
minister, spoke of the body as: 
“Putting the resources of the 
nation into foe hands of the 
people." 

But since then the corpora- 
tion has taken no more than 
0.0875 per cent of the sale of 
minerals it negotiates on be- 
half ofthe companies and has 
effectively reduced worrisome 
stockpiles. 

Zimbabwe ranks fourth in 
the world as a chrome ore 
producer (526.000 tons in 
;« - 1985). Bui the value of its 
exports of beneficiated ■ low- 
carbon fcrrochrome (21 per 
' .i w cent of estimated world depos- 
its) has dropped. 


The asbestos mines at 
Shangani and Mashaba in the 
west of the country fell far 
behind the production of foe 
Soviet Union and Canada. 
But Zimbabwe produces 
white. long-fibre chrysolite 
asbestos, unlike foe hazardous 
short-fibre, blue asbestos of its 
competitors. 

In this respect, ft is the 
world's largest exporter 
(174,000 tons in 1985) and is 
working hard against publicity 
that condemns all asbestos. 

Though the country is a 
minnow in world gold produc- 
tion (472.000 fine ounces in 
1 985). the metal is the second 
biggest single-commodity for- 
eign currency earner after 
tobacco. 

Evidence of government 
support for foe indusuy came 
in 1984 when foe gold price 
slumped and dozens of foe 
smaller companies were on 
foe brink- of closure. 

The government stepped in 
with a gold price stabiliziion 
scheme, in which any losses 
from gold sales below £200 for 
a fine ounce were made up to 
that level from treasury funds, 
to be repaid later. 

The industry is in a mixed 
Stale. The numberof exclusive 
prospecting orders granted has 
fallen from S3 in 1981 to six 
last year.- . 

But Derek Bain, chief exec- 
utive of foe Chamber of Mines 
of Zimbabwe, reports a “lot of 
groundswdr. largely as a 
reaction to aerial and electro- 
magnetic surveys. 

The mines remain as ham- 
strung as other sectors by 
foreign currency scarcity. 

"Heath Robinson and. 
cannibalisation play a major 
part." said Mr Bain. “The 
government poes out of its 
way to assist in foe case of an 
imminent breakdown and 
usually finds the money. But 
still production is reduced."

Enough food to give away 


/ - n A The menace 

- of drought 
and siarva- 
** on * n Africa , 
r WSwJ shows little 
j sign of relent- 

ing . But Zimbabwe has too 
much food. The success of the 
small nation's farmers has 
become one of the best-known 
aspects of its history since 
independence in 1980. 

Production of maize has 
more than doubled, with 1.7 
midion tonnes expected to be 
delivered this year to the grain 
marketing board, the sole legal 
buyer of farmers’ produce. 

By April, the biggest -ever 
maize stockpile of about two 
million tonnes will be in silos 
and stacked high in lots 
around the countryside. 

Since independence, high- 
quality white Zimbabwean 
maize has fed the starving of 
Ethiopia. Mozambique, An- 
gola, Zaire. Zambia. Bo-* 
iswana, Tanzania. Somalia 
and this year, ironically. South 
Africa. But the stockpile has 
reached unmanageable 
proportions. 

Loans to finance crop pur- 
chases from fanners by the 
Agricultural Marketing 
Authority are now tying up 
£140 million of bank credit 
Another £18 million in in- 
terest charges is straining the 
finances ofthe grain boaid.

largely positive because of 
savage import cots — is ex- 
pected to reverse its trend 
between now and 1988. 

Between now and then, Zim- 
babwe will be reaching a peak 
in the repayment of short-term 
loans incurred in the easy 
early years of independence. 

The worst restraint on 
development is the shortage of 
foreign exchange. By far the 
largest slice of foreign ex- 
change outflows consists of 
debt repayments. Foreign debt 
at the end of 1985 stood at 
£731 million, and repayments 
over the next year are expected 
to rise by 157 per cent The 
situation is worsened by the 
steady decline of the value of 
the Zimbabwe dollar by 5ft per 
cent in the last three years. ..v . 

Ironically, the declining 



A land of plenty: The fruit and vegetable market in-Harare 


irrigated estates of the 
commercial sector to the peas- 
ants with their tiny, dusty 
smallholdings, will be able to' 
raise the necessary short-term 
finance for the coming season. 

Economists predict slow fu- 
ture growth. The tobacco in- 
dustry hopes that by the end of 
the year it will have harvested 
and cured 1 20.000 tonnes, and 
sold it on the new £4 million 
auction floor in Harare, 
which, covering 20 acres, is 
the largest in the world. - 

Last year tobacco growers, 
with not a cent of government 
assistance, earned £140 mil- 
lion, making them the biggest 


single contributor to- the 
foreign reserves. 

At the same time, cotton 
fanning has undergone a 
/ ‘‘white revolution” , because 
the crop is - suited to low 
■rainfall and to the marginal 
soil areas that cover warty 65 
per cent of the country. 

Cotton production has 
swelled by 40 per cent 
(250.000 tonnes last year) 
since independence, and . is 
expected to contribute neariy 
■ £50million in export earnings..

but efficient But they have 


Hard budget plan 


Zimbabwe dollar has been a 
boon to exporters, and pro* 
tided them with a competitive 
price edge. But conversely, 
import costs have soared. 

Exports, with the mining 
sector the most prolific pro- 
vider. have neariy doubled 
since 1980, when earnings 
were about £370 million. ; 

In real terms, on the other - 
hand, export values stand 
moch where they were at 
independence, and are lower in 
some commodities. 

Sluggish international 
commodity prices will not 
allow- a growth of more than 
five -per cent-a year » exports, 
according to predictions here. 

The- resultant restraints on 


Imports mean that the mining 
industry and the manufac- 
turing sector can forget about 
replacing worn-out and out- 
dated equipment, let atone 
expansion. 

Foreign aid and barter deals 
have, - therefore, become an' 
increasingly important for the 
-balance of payments^ - • ■ ■ 

Dr Cb Micro expects to re- 
ceive £65 mfltion in foreign aid 
over the next year, but this is 
unlikely to be realised — 
especially the contribution of

an anti-American diatribe

reception that led to a walkout

former US presfttent."

kets to contend with and, in 
July last year, wages- were 
statutorily raised by more 
than 100 per cent, placing 
their combined export earn- 
ings of nearly £50 million and 
20 000 jobs in jeopardy. 

On. the exports front, the 

beef industry is one of the few 

capable of dramatic .expan- 
sion, as a result of the entry 
last year of Zimbabwe’s high- 
quality beef on Jp the. Euro- 
pean Community- market, 
with an initial quota'-t>f £20 
million. ~ 

But successive droughts and 
low ’returns for cattfe farmers 
have caused the size of the 
national herd on commercial 
farms to drop from a high of 
2.7minion head in 1 978 to 1.9 
million in 1984. Only, about a 
quarter of the . quota tonnage 

was actually met 

The government has been 
abje to move only marginally 
to resolve one' of the country’s 
'most marked feature, " the 
disparity of land ownership 
. between the' country's, peas- 
ants, overcrowded bn abjectly 
underdeveloped land, dhd the 
wealthy' commercial 1 - fanners, 
numbering about 3.500.-/ 

At independency, the gov- 
eroment announced its inten- 
tion to resettle “162,000 
peasant families' on land 
bought from while -farmers in 
Jive years- But six. years later, 
only 35,000 families- 4iave 
been granted 5.4 million acres 
- of former white-owned land. 


Bartering, with Third 
World and eastern bloc coun- 
tries is.projected to grow to 
the point where it accounts for 
10 per cent of trade. Batthere 
is considerable dissatisfaction 
with the system h, add econo- 
mists estimate that -‘the 
unsuitability of tbe goods ex- 
changed can serve as a 40 per 
cent surcharge. 

Unemployment is increas- 
ingly seen- as the economy's 
“time bomb.”. Mr -Zdenick 
SHayecky,. the group, econo- 
mist for tire Standard. Char- 
tered Bank of Zimbabyre, has 
estimated that -by 1990 one 
million of Zimbabwe's pro- 
jected population of 10 million 
will be either oat of work or

about 3ft per cent of the total 
labour force. -

Gran Ahcant, an Already-established sdmw of 353 apaztnKste-OR the Cuh ffiiaca 


So many leisure-home complexes are 
being built in Spain that it makes sense 
for a buyer to consider a scheme which is 
already established, although not com- 
plete. Developments which already have 
tennis courts, swimming pools, a few 
shops and bars are more likely to 
continue to thrive as more units are 
added. 

And. once a residential community is 
established, it must form a residents 
association. Known as comunidad de 
propiciamis. an official administrator 
has to be appointed, regular meetings 
held and a budget presented Foreign 
owners who cannot attend are allocated a 


proxy vote. Proximity to an airport is 

sener 


also valuable. Two contrasting schemes. 
Gran Alacant on the Costa Blanca and El 
Puerto dc Sotograndc at the western end 
of the Costa del Sol. owe much of their 
appeal to the above points. Gran Alacant 
is a big apartment complex of 353 one. 
two. three and four bedroom units, built 
in two V-shapcd blocks on a cliff top six 
kilometres south of Alicante airport 

It has bars, a restaurant, supermarket 
and even a bakery. AH the apartments 
have uninterrupted views of the Medi- 
terranean and overlook the two swim- 
ming-pool areas set in mature gardens, 
which form the heart of the Vs.The 
whole Gran Alacant estate, totalling 
2.000 acres, is owned by Banco Exterior 
de Espana. which has seven UK 
branches. The London head office is at 
60 London Wall. London EC2. Banco 
Exterior bought Gran Alacant in July 
1983 after the development company 
collapsed. 

The infrastructure and most of the 
apartments were already completed, so 
the bank's commitment has been to 
finish the interiors, complete the leisure 
facilities and market the scheme. 

Purchase prices are among the lowest 
for a holiday development along any of 


the Spanish costas. With a one-bedroom 
flat costing £13.093. comparisons are 
bound to be made with high-season 
times hare purchasing. Services charges, 
at Gran Alacant arc low at£220 to £300 a 
year. 

All the homes have an open-plan 
kitchen fitted with cooker — a fridge, 
dishwasher and washing machine are 
optional extras. The bedrooms have 
fitted wardrobes. A terrace leads directly 
from the living area and some flats have 
a small additional balcony off the 
kitchen. The four-bedroom units are' 
slightly different in design, having a 
second bathroom, two terraces and a 
larger living room. 


How to take the pain 
out of buying in Spain. 
Diana Wildman reports 


Prices range from £13.093 for one 
bedroom. £15.488 -for two bedrooms, 
£ 1 8 J09 for three bedrooms and between 
£28.721 and £32.209 for the four- 
bedroom units. About L20 apartments 
are for sale and ready for immediate 
occupation. The agents. Azure Develop- 
ments. can arrange a full furnishing 
package from £1.500 upwards.

The 4.000-acrc Sotograndc estate has 
been established for more than 20 years 
and Puerto Sotograndc. the beachside 
400-unit apartment complex within the 
estate, for the past eight. Facilities 
include a beach club, sailing, 
windsurfing, golf and a variety of shop. 

Fernando Montojo. Puerto 


Sologrande's managing director, has had 
plans to build a marina for yeari. When 
the border restrictions between Spain 
and Gibraltar were lifted, in February 
1985. property prices, ahnost doubled at 
Sotograndc because of the proximity of 
Gibraltar airport — 20 minutes away — 
and investment money began-'to pour 
into the marina project 

Mr Montojo now has all the finance 
for his ambitious marina scheme: To. be 
known as El Puerto de Sotogrande. work 
_ on the first phase of 250 apartments,' 
' some commercial units and 560 berths is 
well under way. Occupation is scheduled 
for next July. 

The two low-rise a par tm ent blocks 
face over the El Puerto de Sotogrande 
marina to the sea beyond. Prices for the 
two and three bedroom apartments 
range from £55,(XXl-to .£110,0(XLT1 ms 
berths, of which 40 per cent are sold, 
range from £6,000 to £180,000 for one 
capable of mooring a Dynasty - style 
yacnt-The style and layout of the new 
marina has been strongly influenced by 
the 19th-century Mediterranean town- 
house style, Umding with a Venetian 
theme with soft red-tiled roofit,' long, 
narrow windows and differing ' pastel 
coloured faeadet, all of which is in. total 
contrast to the mortem starimess of 
Fernando Montego’s original : beach 
apartments which adjoin the marina. .

Appreciating Consultants . ... 

TWs ad is entirely specific. It is written to those who know first-hand just how 
much effort and energy it takes to achieve real success as a secretarial 

reemhmem consultant. 

Such success randy comes easily Drive, energy and ability are all necessary 
Yet so too is confidence. And sometimes, confidence can be eroded by 
suiroundings.WhichbringsustodrcTWoquesooiB 

' The first question concerns loyally In all honesty we haveyet to meet a good 
co ns ul t a n t who was not also a supreme advocate for their own employee 
Professional pride to one's own organisation is always admirable. Yet in 
troth, how often is it warranted? Is your company as unaxupronustog in is 
support of you as you are ofli? 

The second question e e xye r ns career progress. The professional is often the 
last to benefit from his own skill and expert ise . In your own case, you spend 
each day of the week advising others. But how often do you pause to 
consider your own career? Are you gaining in reward, respect and 
recognition? Are you appreciating, as well as appreciated, as a consultant? 
Ifnot, then perhaps we should talk quire soon — off the record, informally 
whenever and wherever suits you best. Call Richard Grace (Sam to 8pm) on

RACING: CHAMPION TRAINER CAN COLLECT YARMOUTH’S TWO JUVENILE PRIZES FOR SECOND YEAR RUNNING 

Cecil team ready for a repeat double y 

trainer’s 


TENNIS 


By Mandarin 
(Michael Phillips) 
Twelve months ago, Henry 
Cecil andSteve Cautben made 
one of their numerous 
successful raids on Yarmouth 
where they won the Fee Farm 
Maiden Stakes and the EBF 
Ferebrown Maiden Stakes 
with Bonhomie and Native 
Oak, respectively. 

Today they are all set to 
return to the Norfolk seaside 
course, hopeful they can col- 
lect the same two races, this 
time with Russian Steppe 
(11 5) and At Risk (4.15). 

Although neither have ran 
before,'botfa are reported to be 
primed for the occasion and 
no one is better versed in the 
art of scoring with a two-year- 
old first time out than the 
immensely successive master 

of Warren Place. 

George Robinson, our 
experienced Newmarket 
correspondent who daily 
watches the gallops on the 
Heath, reported that the Nijin- 
sky coll Russian Steppe, who 
cost his owner. Sheikh 
Mohammed, $273,000 as a 
yearling, is folly capable of 
winning first time on a 
racecourse. 

But he warns that At Ride, a 
grey daughter of Mr Prospec- 
tor, who is also the sire of 
Jeremy Tree’s crack two-year- 
old colt Bellotto, will need to 
be as sharp as she looks if she 
is to beat Lucayan Knight, 
who is a son of another 
successful stallion Dominion. 

Today’s nap, though, is 
Jolrist to record his third 
success in a row in the 
sponsored Castlemaine 
XXXX Handicap. 

Last time out Richard 
Shaw’s three-year-old, who 
won on soft ground as a two- 
year-old when trained by 
Colin Williams, confirmed 
that he was most certainly on 
the upgrade by winning the 
Nottingham Stewards’ Gup in 
the experienced hands of Rob- 
ert Street 

The first hint that Jolrist was 
on the way up the ladder came 
when be ran Young Jason to a 
length at Chepstow towards 
the end of June. And with 
Young Jason so nearly win- 
ning the Stewards* Cup at 
Goodwood four weeks later 
that was a pretty decent 
performance in hindsight 

The improvement that 
Jolrist showed at Chepstow 
was consolidated when he 
landed his next race at Wind- 
sor pretty comfortably. Now 
he meets all his rivals on 31b 
better terms than he will in 
future handicaps, even though 
his weight this afternoon in- 
dudes the 61b penalty as a

learning his trade with Mi- 
chael Stoute, is striking again 
while the iron is still hoL 

Beaten a neck by Sailor's 
Seng at Ungfield last week, 
Bertie Wooster, Lester 
Piggott’s runner, still has the 
beating of Sharpetto if one 
recalls their race at New- 
market in July when they 
finished second and fourth, 
respectively, behind 
Chummy’s Pet. 

Sharpetto has six lengths to 
make up on Bertie Wooster, 
but only 31b to hdp him. So I 
regard Bertie Wooster, along 
with Compleat, as the hard 
core of Jokist’s opposition. 
Compleat did well to run that 
hardened veteran Manimstar 
to only half a length at 
Goodwood earlier this month. 

At Beverley I expect the 
Silver Salver Nursery Handi- 
cap to be won by the New- 
market trainer Ron Boss with 
Sno Surprise ,who lived up to 
his name when beating 
Timeswitch at Yarmouth last 


Thursday at the rewarding 
odds of 14-1. 

No one will be keener to win 
the Charles Elsey Memorial 
Challenge Trophy than the 
late and great trainer’s son 
Bill, who continues to rule the 
roost at Highfieid, the family 
home in Malton. 

And what is more he has a 
good chance of doing so with 
Past Glories .who was a bit 
out of his depth in the Melrose 
Handicap at York last week. 

With Franca Vittadini in 
the saddle. Paean should 
make short work of his oppo- 
sition in the Beverley Ama- 
teur Riders' Stakes. 

Finally, Toby Balding looks 
the trainer to follow at New- 
ton Abbot where Amantiss 
(4.0) and Timlyn (4.30) can 
give him two bites a: the 
cherry of success. 

As Balding trained The 
Wombat, nothing would give 
him more pleasure than 
receiving The Wombat Chal- 
lenge Cup from Mrs Nick 
Nutting, whose colours that 
popular old warhorse carried 
in his heyday. In Timlyn, who 
has won his latest two races, 
Balding looks to have the 
answer.

ambition 

William Hastings-Bass, the 
Newmarket trainer, w as in a 
triumphant mood after greeting 
Psalmody's victory in the Rub- 
bing House Stakes at Epsom 
yesterday. . _. 

With ram dripping down his 
face, Hastings-Bass said: 
“That's fulfilled an ambition. 
I’ve been trying for years to have 
a winner at Epsom, and it's nice 
to do it with a horse owned by 
Lord Derby. I have now won at 
every Flat racecourse in Britain, 
including two that have dosed, 
Lanark and Tcesadc Park.” 

“Psalmody was second at 
Wolverhampton earlier As 
week, and 1 brought him' here 
rather than running him in a 

nursery. He's one of three horses 

1 train for Lord Derby”, the 

trainer said. 

Tony Murray improved the 
colt, a 4-1 chance, to take the 
lead just made the final furlong 
and win by a comfortable two 
lengths from Tufty Lady, with 
the favourite, Mon Coeur, an- 
other two lengths away. 

The Newmarket apprentice 
Roy Carter, aged 22, rode his 
24th Flat winner on the 15-2 
shot Denboy, and now joins 
Philip Mitchell to start a new 
career over jumps. . 

Denboy, who led just i ns id e 
the final furlong, had a neck to 
spare over Ben Adhem, who 
started slowly for the most 
experienced ted in the Steve 
Donogbue Apprentice Handi- 
cap, Chris Rutter. 

Denboy was the first winner 
for Barry Stevens since he 
moved his 36-strong team from 
Bramtey to Winchester five 
weeks ago. 

Barry was rep resented by his 
wife, Madelene, who said, “The 
horses have settled down well, 
and we've had a few seconds 
since the move, but it's a relief 
to get this winner. Denboy has 
been off for two months because 
he spread a plate at Warwick 
and trod on h, pricking his foot. 
We were not sure how he would 
go on this soft ground". 

Mitchell said: “Young Roy 
has weight problems for the 
Flat He can't do less than 8st 
71b. but he’ll be very effective 
over hurdles, and is a veiy good 
horseman. I don't know bow be 
will do over fences, and h may 
take him a year to settle imp the 
winter game”. 

The West Country raider Tez 
Shikari ended a frustrating run 
of fore seconds when tending the 
Turfas Maiden Stakes by two 
lengths. 

This long-awaited victory was 
due in no small measure to the 
withdrawal of the two best 
fancied horses in the race, 
Gilberto and Great Act. 

Monetary Fund, Spy Tower 
and Tez Shikari, were in line 
approaching the final furlong, 
and it was the visored Devon- 
trained colt who broke dear to 
score for Grcvifle Starkey.

TO THE FOLD AS A NEW ERA DAWNS FOR SCOTLAND 


— ■ . — . w nw n wnmu run | Lurau 

Koxburgh the brave begins in style 

By Hn«h TnvLu- ^ V 


By Hugh Taylor 
Scotland's hopes of coirect- 
S*2" appalling record in the 
championships 
thanks to the 
. of Andy Roxburgh to 
« ll,e Entry’s two 
most -influential players to 
resume their internatio nal 
careers. 

The names of Kenny 
and Graeme Souaess 
the list of priorities in 
a bulky notebook as the new 
man in command set out this 
wek- on the first stage of a 
Pack-breaking assignment 
which has defeated even the 
masterly talents of Stein,. 

Ormond and Ferguson: to 
give the most footbafl-mad 
country of them all an inter- 
national team of significance. 

This is in contrast to the 
views of most of the tartan 
army, who continue to follow 
cheerfully a side which seldom 
fails to walk hand in hand with 
catastrophe. Their view is that 
the first thing to be done if 
Scotland are ever to succeed in 
the European championships, 
which begin with a game 
against Bulgaria at Hampden 
Park on September 10, is for 
the coach (the SFA consider 
manager an old-fashioned 
word) to find a solution to the 
great mystery of why brilliant 
Club sharp-shooters invariably 
fail when attired in the blue 
shirts of Scotland. 

But “no,” says Roxburgh, 

“that does not come first and I 
am not going to indulge in 
speculation about players. The 
names of my first pool will be 
revealed on Monday and not 
before.” 

It is obvious that Roxburgh, 
who is regarded in the highest 
esteem throughout the world be available for the Bulgarian 
as a director of coaching, match, it seems certain that 
believes that the laying down' Dalglish will earn his 101 st 
of a style takes precedence and cap on September 10. 



Master craftsmen: Souness (left) and Dalglish are the old hands to whom Scotland are looking for a brig h ter fut ure 


he believes that it will have to 
be modem and elegant, based 
on the French fashion so loved 
by Scottish enthusiasts. So he 
requires the two outstanding 
players of the last decade to 
lay the foundations. 

He appears to have suc- 
ceeded in enticing both 
Dalglish and Souness. who 
had earlier indicated that their 
new club commitments might 
mean the end of international 
appearances, to return to the 
fold. While Souness may not 


However, to the legions 
desperate to see Scotland 
make 3 winning start in a 
competition in which they 
have never qualified for the 
finals, the most important 
aspect of the squad is whether 
Maurice- Johnston will be 
named. 

Again, the flamboyant 
Celtic forward has become 
something of a folk hero to 
admirers who love to recall 
that some of the best Scottish 
internationals were rumbus- 


tious playboys. Johnston was 
not included in Scotland's 
World Cup squad in Mexico 
because of alleged incidents 
off the field, but he has 
become the most exciting 
forward in the country. To 
avoid howls of indignation, he 
is expected to return this time 
and to be paired with either 
his club colleague McClair, or 
the sprightly McCoist, of 
Rangers. 

There are a few pragmatic 
supporters who continue to be 
pessimistic that the long-last- 
ing problem of impotent 
finishing will ever be solved. 
They recall with dismay the 


disappointment caused by the 
failure ofwhat was regarded as 
a most brilliant array of 
forward power any British 
country could have assem- 
bled . Any combination from 
such illuminaries as Dalglish. 
Nicholas. Sharp. McAvennie, 
Archibald. Stunock, Gray and 
Speedie should have made 
Scotland the wonder of the 
football attacking world. Alas, 
practically every partnership 
from that galaxy turned out 
not to be shooting stars but the 
dampest of squibs. 

Perhaps Roxburgh's new 
pattern, with the inclusion of 
the talented Hansen, of Liver- 


Rush charge looms 
after ‘sending off 


Ian Rush looks certain to face 
a charge of bringing the game 
into disrepute after his Anfield 
outburst The Liverpool for- 
ward was ‘sent off after the 
goalless Bank Holiday home 
draw against Manchester City 
and Kenny Dalglish. 
Liverpool’s player-manager, 
confirmed: “I understand Rush 
will be reported to the Football 
Association for using foul and 
abusive language." 

Had Rush committed his 
indiscretion during the game he 
would now lace an automatic 
two-match ban, but as it came 
after the final whistle the 
punishment could be more 
severe. 

Teny Butcher, now with 
Glasgow Rangers, was recently 
fined £1,000 following an in- 
cident with the referee after last 
season's Ipswich game at West 
Ham. 

“Rush’s case will be dealt with 
accordingly once we have re- 
ceived the referee’s report.” an 
FA spokesman said yesterday. 
“There is no automatic punish- 
ment and we will write to him 
asking for his comments." 

The referee, Ken Walmsley. 
acted as Rush and the Liverpool 
side were leaving the pitch 
following their 0-0 draw against 
Manchester City. 

“I sent him off for a comment 
he made to me," walmsley said 
later. 

Liverpool's Merseyside rivals. 
Everton. also drew at 
Hillsborough, where David 
Hirst, Sheffield Wednesday’s 
teenage substitute, took just 60 


seconds tD make his mark in the 
2-2 thriller. 

Hirst, who cost £200.000 from 
Barnsley, was upstaged by West 
Ham's Frank McAvennie as the 
East Enders set an early title 
pace. McAvennie stunned Old 
TraiTord with a 56 seconds 
strike and finished up with two 
in Hammers' 3-2 triumph over 
Manchester United. “That’s the 
quickest goal I’ve ever 
McAvennie said. 

While West Ham sit pretty 
with six points out of six. United 
are still searching for their first 
point of the campaign. It is a 
stark contrast to last season 
when they started with 10 
straight wins. 

“We were a bit naive at the 
back, something you can’t af- 
ford against people like 
McAvennie " Ron Atkinson, a 
disappointed manager, said. 

Chelsea’s second draw against 
sides destined for the lower half 
of the First Division hardly 
supported their tag of possible 
title chasers. 

On Saturday they were held at 
home by Norwich and yesterday 
drew 1-1 at Oxford. David 
Speedie collecting a booking 
then a goal. Gary Briggs equal- 
ized and John Hollins. Chelsea 
manager, admitted: “1 look on it 
as two points lost rather than 
one gained." 

But Rush was not the only 
Welsh international in trouble. 
George Berry, the Stoke City 
captain, was banished after 87 
minutes of their 2-1 Second 
Division defeat by Leeds 
United. 


farewell 
to Anfield 

Sammy Lee ended his 10-year 
career with Liverpool when be 
joined Queen's Park Rangers for 
£200,000 yesterday after under- 
going a medical at Loftns Road. 

Lee. a stocky midfield player, 
won 14 caps Tor England during 
a glittering career at Anfield 
that has seen him win most 
major honours, bat he has been 
unable to command a regular 
first team place over the last two 
years and decided to move. He 
wOl add vital experience and a 
competitive edge to the side Jim 
Smith is rebuilding in West 
London. 

• Luton have introduced a mem- 
bers-only plan and a blanket ban 
on visiting fans to prevent 
troubles. In an attempt to halt 
troobie-makers within the 
gnxmd and attract more local 
families to football, Luton have 
taken the unprecedented step of 
restricting admission at all 
League games to holders of 
membership cards. 

Loton card holders will be 
able to bring three guests with 
them, bat membership will be 
withdrawn if they canse trouble. 
No tickets will be sold on the day 
of the match. 

Club officials admit they may 
lose money- on the turnstiles and 
that genuine fans from visiting 
clubs will suffer — bat they are 
determined there will be no 
repeat of the £25.000 damage 
caused at the ground by rampag- 
ing Millwall fans last year. 

Loton can look forward to a 
reduced bOt from the Bedford- 
shire police. 


David Real’s belief that 
Tottenham Hotspur can mount 
a genuine championship chal- 
lenge has sparked Give Allen's 
early season goal rush. On the 
eve of the season, the new 
manager urged his players to 
aim high. “With our squad we 
have a genuine chance of the 
title,” Pleat told them. 

Allen, whose last two seasons 
have been seriously disrupted 
by injury, took up the rally cry in 
dramatic fashion on Monday, 
by scoring against Newcastle 
United to follow his hat-trick in 
Saturday’s dazzling 5-0 win at 
Aston Villa. 

“This is the best squad since I 
have been at While Hart Lane.” 
said the 25-year-old forward. 
“When you look around here at 
all the feces, it's easy to share the 
manager's thoughts that we 
should be aiming for the title. 
That alone gives you confidence 
and certainly things could not 
have gone better for me so fer. 

“I worked hard to get fit and I 
feel very sharp. Being out for so 
long gives you a renewed ap- 
petite and it has also been 
enjoyable working under David 
PleaL 1 have been very im- 
pressed with him." he said. 

After Allen had bundled 
home Chris Waddle's curling 
cross in first half injury time, 
Tottenham should have gone on 
to claim maximum points from 
their first two games. It did not 
happen because they spumed 
chances and Martin Thomas. 
Newcastle’ goalkeeper, was in 
inspired form. Then, three min- 


utes from time Peter Beardsley 
prodded home the equalizer. 

IL frustrated the Tottenham 
feithfiil but Pleat is confident 
that the future remains un- 
dimmed. “It was disappointing 
because we could have won 
convincingly." he said. “We had 
the chances in the second half 
but failed to kill them off We 
kept our pattern throughout and 
defensively we were not really 
troubled all afternoon and that’s 
pleasing.” 

Richard Gough enhanced the 
reputation he has established in 
the handful of games be has 
played in since his £750.000 
transfer from Dundee United. 
The big defender also won 
praise from Pleat for an attack- 
ing charge which nearly pro- 
duced the first goal. 

“Richard is a good athlete and 
the early ball be delivered after 
his long run was just what we 
were looking for," he said. “It 
was another early ball from 
Chris Waddle that finally got us 
the goal" 

• Ian Thompson. Bourne- 
mouth forward, has been forced 
to retire after failing to over- 
come a persistent pelvic injury. 
Thompson, 28. a qualified 
schoolteacher, scored 36 goals in 
137 appearances in three years 
for Bournemouth. He plans to 
return to teaching. His most 
memorable moment was scor- 
ing one of the goals in the 2-0 FA 
Cup win over Manchester 
United, the holders at Dean 
Court in 1984.

Lakeland. Florida lAPl — The 
United States Open is the most 
cherished prize in the world in 
men's golf, according to a pool 
of judges made up of players and 
journalists. 

The panel. Andy Bean and 
Bob Murphy- golfers. Ken Ven- 
turi. CBS television network 
gol f analysL and seven go) f 
writers, were asked by the 
Lakeland Ledger what they fell 
were the most important golf 
tournaments in the world. 

Eight gave their vole to lhe 
US Open. None of them ranked 
the tournament below firet 
place, but one writer selected the 
Masters. British Open and US 
Open as of equal status. 

The consensus was that the 
US Open has the highest reputa- 
tion because it has the best field 
year alter year. Llnlikc the 
Masters, the US Open holds 
qualifying rounds so the best 
amateurs and professionals 
meet head to head. 

The VS Open is also moved 
from year to year, providing 
more c ha l lege to' players because 
they net er know what to expect. 
“It is the premier golf e*cnt in 
the world, period.” Murphy, 
who captured this year’s Ca- 
nadian Open. said. “The others 
arc great to win. but when you 

win the US Open, you’ic done 
something above winning." _ 

Rounding out the top five 
tournaments chosen by lhe 
group were the British Open, the 
Masters, the PGA champion- 
ship and the Tournament Play- 
ers championship.

Mansfield upset 

Keith Cassells, a forward, has 
startled newly-promoted Mans-

transfer. Cassells, aged 29. who 
cost the club £17.500 Iasi sum- 
mer. wants to move back to the 
London area because of his 
wife's ill health. Mansfield will 
only allow Cassells to join a 
London club and expect to 
recoup a large pan of the 
£17.500 they paid for him last 
summer. He scored 15 goals to 
spearhead Mansfield’s drive to 
promotion from the fourth di-

Brentford.

and flexibility to a rearguard 
whose main function would 
be to attack from behind, will 
give forwards a better chance 
of breaking the spell which 
seems to be cast on them at 
international level. 

While Roxburgh, the in- 
spiration behind several 
remarkable Scottish youth 
victories, is still regarded with 
suspicion in some quarters, 
his pedigree as a potential 
champion on the modern 
foot tell scene is impeccable 
and his choice of players for 
the start of a new era will be 
eagerly awaited.

Americans 
ready to 
get on their 
bikes 

.From John Wflcockson 
Colorado Springs 

For only the AM time this 
century the world cycling 
championships are taking place 
in North America. Newark, New 
Jersey, la 1912 aad Montreal, 
Canada, in 1974 were die pre- 
vious locations but neither of 
those promotions can compare 
with the size and pretensions of 
the championships that open 
today In dus sprawling, modem 
city at the foot of the Rocky 
Motmfarws. 

Because of its 6,210ft devo- 
tion, the open-air, 333-metre 
concre te velodrome, where 12 of 
the 16 championships will be 
de c i ded, is one of the fastest in 
the world. Corporate s po nso r- 
p is an rmntiwl part of 
jwhhn sport bt the modem 
United States. The .Southland

demoted the S2 mflfien (about 
£1,350,000) velodrome to the 
linked States Cycling Federa- 
tion and they have preaped a 
farther S3 million into these 

It is a Car cry from 1912 when 
the promot ers relied on the 
entrance money of die crowds to 
finance the championships. 
There were few European 
tpetitors 74 years ago be- 
se of the difficulties of trans- 
Attamic travel. 

Drapite this influx of time and 
money, die six men's amateur

Nielsen bars way 
for Gundersen to 
iplete hat-trick 


By Keith Macldin 


The world indmdnal title 
could be decided as early as the 
second beat before a crowd 
expected to top 100,000 in 
Katowice, Poland, ,on Saturday. 
If this sounds a pessimistic 
forecast of a resounding anti-, 
dimax, then folk at the 
evidence. 

Most rational people accept 
that tbetitie will again be fought 
out between Erik Gundersen, 
the holder forthe past two years, 
and Hans Nirisray bis. great

quirks of the draw 'have insured - 
that the Danish champion 
meets his nearest challenger ih 
heat two, and the winner could 
well be motivated to go otrfbr

Of course, these could . be. ; 
mechanical failures, or Gun-

In addition to Nielsen there is

and Nielsen has 'been seeking-

another former world cham- 
pion, will be in Gundersen’s 
corner. 

All this makes it seem that tfie

BASKETBALL 


League for non-giants 
begins flexing muscles 


New York (Reuter) — The 
United States' newest pro- ' 
fessional league hopes to stood 
out by being shorter. The Inter- 
national Basketball Association 
for players 6ft 4in and under will 
begin next summer to avoid 
competition with the National 
Basketball Association, where 
, giants over 7ft rule the courts. 

The IBA’s rules will favour 
quickness, piaytnalring and pure 
shooting, not height, Ben 
Haiskin, the I BA co-founder 
said yesterday. 

Franchises have been granted 
in eight North American cities . 


with four others to be finalized, 
in die next couple of months. 
The IBA hopes to~ stage a 
“world" championship by. 1988- 
and has a tentative agreement 
with the Philippines BA for a 
series of post-season games rn 
1987, Hatskin said.

gutizers ofUnited, Stales, versus 
Soviet competitions- in tennis 
and ice hockey, amf of .North

cluding the world (tee) Hockey ' 
Association and the American

now defunct after part mergers 
into senior rival leagues..

European geography 
puts King in corner 


Lee’s fond Spurs told 6 we can 

win league glory’ 


Los Angeles (Reuter) — Don 
King, the promoter, was in full 
flow. “I present to you a man 
from The Netherlands . . . from 
Norway," he declared. “He is a 
man who will emulate In gemar 
Johansson, his Swedish compa- 
triot and the former heavy- 
ight champion. You say why 
Steffen Tangstad? f say why not 
Steffen Tangstad?" 

King, showing a few gaps in 
his knowledge of geography, was 
hard at work yesterday tooting 
an International Boxing Federa- 
tion world heavyweight title 
fight between Michael Spinks, 
lhe bolder, and Tangstad (6 pm 
Norway), the European cham- 
pion, in Las Vegas on Septem- 
ber 6. 

• The problem that baffled the 
flamboyant promoter was that 
Tangstad, aged 27, despite 
standing 6ft 2in, is shy, and 
almost unknown in the United 
States. At lunch, Tangstad met 
the affable Spinks and sparks 
failed to fly — perhaps only to be 
expected from a fighter whose 
country has harmed professional 
boxing since 1981. The nearest 
the fighters managed to a 
menacing stance, despite King’s 
goa di ng, was to grin at each 
other with fists clenched. 

Tangstad has 24 wins, includ- 
ing 12 by knockout, one loss and 
two draws.“l want to win and I 
think I'm going to .win,” 
Tangstad said quietly. “My 
dream for so many years has 
been to fight for the world title.” 


Spinks, a natural 
we ight who look the 
weight title from Larry Holmes 
last September and beat him 
again in a rematch, sms be 
thinks he is still the underdog. “I 
put Tangstad exactly where 
people put me against Holmes,” 
be sakL “I look forward to a 
tough fight. I'm not putting 
Tangstad down. 

“Once. I never dreamed of 
being in fights with big guys to 
whom I have to give away 10 to 
15 pounds,” Spinks . said. 
“Tangstad is a big guy, a very 
rough guy. Let someone else say 
he’s soft, not me." • ■ ■ • 

Tangstad looked at the floor 
in embarrassment. Asked if he 
bad any heroes, Tangstad raid: 
-Johansson became my big idol. 

I saw him in Florida recently. 
He has given me a lot of good 
advice.” Describing his style. 
Tangstad said : “I have a knock- 
out punch in both hands. I feel 
Fm improving.” 

Tangstad said he did not 
expect the Las Vegas heat to 
upset him as it has other 
European boxers, in c lu d in g 
Bany McGirigan, of Northern 
Ireland, who lost his world 
featherweight title to Steve Cruz 
in June with the temperature 
above lOOdegF. “I arrived in 
Las Vegas early because of the • 
heat,” Tangstad said. “The beat 
ve me a little problem at the 
ning, but now I am over

Gatting’s reign blossoms 
under the falling rain 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


THE OVAL: Engfont 
with New Zealand, 

The third Test match 
against New Zealand, spon- 
sored by ComhiJL. ended yes- 
terday in frustration. Despite 
frequent attempts, some more 
whole-hearted than others, to 
get play started, only one over 
was bowled,- in which New 
Zealand made seven for no 
wicket after England had 
declared at their overnight 
score of 388 for five. 

New Zealand are to be 
warmly congratulated, there- 
fore, on winning a series in 
England for the hist time, by 
virtue of their eight-wickeis 
victory at Trent Bridge. Hav- 
ing taken the Texaco Trophy 
as welt the one-day curtain- 
raiser, they have had no less 
successful a tour than the 
Indians before them. If En- 
gland had the better of this last 
Test match,. New Zealand 
came much closer to winning 
the first at -Lord's. 

In nearly 60 years New 
Zealand have beaten England 
four rimes. For years they 
were underdogs, at any rate 
when it came to praying 
England and Australia. Now 
they have won their last two 
senes against them both. I like 
to think of John Reid and Bert 
Sutcliffe and Martin Donnelly 
and Mervyn Wallace and Jack 
Cowie and Richard Hadlee's 
father and lots of their other 
pioneers joining together in 
mutual celebration of a golden 
age for New Zealand cricket 

Asked last night why he 
thought it was that they had 
"come good". Coney said that 
perhaps it was because “we are 
proud of our sporting 
heritage". Of his side he said 
they were “not necessarily 
very pretty pairs but they do 
get the best out of them- 
selves.. I have a suspicion 


that it may not be quite the 
same with all other countries.” 
For myself. I have a suspicion 
he may be right. 

Just over half the playing 
time was lost here at the Oval 
a total of 15 hours 40 minutes. 
It is some years since a Test 
match in England was 3s badly 
interrupted as that. Had it 
been a fine morning yesterday 
we would have had the chance 
of seeing Botham chasing the 
fastest century in Test cricket 
in the same match as he 
became the leading wicket- 
taker in Test history. 

As it was, no sooner had the 
field been got ready for a start 
around I2L30 than the rain 
came down, and that was just 
as it was all day. By lunch 
word came through that 
Gatting had declared, and all 
there had been when, at four 
o'clock, the match was aban- 
doned, were two sessions of 
play, of three balls each. In 
these Botham bowled a couple 
of predictable long hops, 
which Wright hit for four and 
three... As predictable, any- 
way, as anything that Botham 
does can be- 
lt may not be a bad thing for 


England to be approaching the 
tour of Australia without the 
euphoria that led to such 
unfulfilled hopes a year ago. 
After the Ashes had been 
retained at the Oval then, 
even the West Indians in West 
Indies seemed fair game. In 10 
Test matches since, only in the 
one just finished did England 
so much as gain a first-innings 
lead 

We shall go off to Australia 
this time under no such 
illusions. No great crowd 
massed in font of the. Oval 
pavilion yesterday, to give the 
team a ticker-tape send-off as 
they did last August. On the 
other hand, no one could have 
asked for any better batting 
than by Goror, Gatting and 
Botham on Saturday and 
Monday. It was exactly what 
was needed to put the side in 
better fettle and to appeal to 
Australian cricket followers. 

Gatting is finding his feet as 
captain. There have been 
limeSj I am sure, since he took 
over from Gower, when he has 
cursed his luck. Successful 
captains need effective 
howlers (where would Hutton 
have been without Tyson and 


Botham was hit for 25 

Although Ian Botham's 24 rans off one over from Derek Stirling 
at the Oval on Monday equalled the Test record Cm one batsman, 
the greatest number of runs to come off an over in Tist cricket re- 
mains 25 (Simon WQde writes). At Johannesburg in 1953-54, two 
New Zealand batsmen hit TayfieU, of South Africa, for 25 runs in 
one tight-half over (which were then still In nse), Sntdiffe for three 
sixes and a single, and Blair for another six. 

This total was equalled daring a six-ball ever from Botham at 
Port of Spain ■ 1980-81, when Roberts, the West Indies Cast 
bowler, struck three sixes, a four and a two, in addition to there be- 
ing one leg-bye. 

Petzl, of India, became the second batsman to score 24 runs off 
one over when be struck six fours in seven balls from Willis (the 
third ball of the over was a no-ball, and PnfO did. not score from the 
forth), at Old Trafford in 1982. As Pa til was 80 not oat when the 
over began, he had, by its end, brought up his handred in a most 
spectacular of fashion.

them more firmly. He was

Weather leaves race for 
championship wide open 


Cowdrey 
to have 
test today 


• After the abandonment of alT the 
leaders' games yesterday, the race for 
the Britannic Assurance County 
Championship remains delicately 
poised. Gloucestershire have seen their 
lead cut to 10 points and have only two 
matches (against Worcestershire and 
Surrey) remaining. Essex, who have 
whittled away a lead once stretching to 
50 points, have four matches to make 


Christopher Cowdrey, the 
Kent captain, still troubled by a 
groin injury, will have a fitness 
test at Trent Bridge today before

Graham Gooch returns from 


Graveney 
refuses 
to concede 


By Peter Ban 


As 


the rain continued to 
sweep across a bleak Old 
Traftord yesterday morning. 
David Graveney remained 
philosophical although the 
temptation to rail against the 
elements must have been 
strong as he watched the tail of 
"Hurricane Charlie” tilt the 
balance another degree or two 
in Essex's favour. 

"So far I’ve tended to ignore 
the mathematical options, 
thinking we should con- 
centrate on playing well and 
winning, but with the weather 
beginning to play an increas- 
ing part, we’ve reached the 
stage where you can't ignore 
them," Graveney reflected. 

"It is not yet a two-horse 
race. Surrey still have to play 
us, and if they win one of their 
.' other games, it will be interest- 
- ing, but I think they really 
needed to beat Essex. Essex 
must be marginal favourites 
now,” he said. 

For the second year run- 
ning, Gloucestershire are 
faced with the knowledge that 
an impressive lead has been 
whittled away in August. 

"It is disappointing," 

• Graveney said, "because this 
year the weather has dented 
our cause more so than last 
year. Then 1 felt we blew 
. opportunities of winning, but 
■ this year we just haven’t been 
T able to get into games. 

“We've lost the middle day 
. in four of our last five 



up the remaining deficit. Behind them, 

Surrey, with three games- left, are a 
further 1 7 points adrift As the rain was 
decimating yesterday's programme, 
the captains of the two counties at the 
top of the table, David Graveney of 

Gloucestershire and Keith Fletcher of 

Essex (deputising for the absent Gra- En^ndduty to ieri“Ess«in

Graveney’s assessment of 
his rivals concentrates on then-

good all round bowling attack. 
John Childs has done very 
well for them, which we are all 
delighted about, and so has

By Ivo Tennant 

Gloucestershire's success in 
the Britannic Assurance County 
Championship this season has 
come as a surprise to Keith 
Fletcher, now the Essex vice- 
captain after 12 years as captain. 
"Without Walsh," be said yes- 
terday. "Gloucestershire would 
be a middle of the table side. 

“That is not meant to be an 
unkind remark. One could say 
the same about Marshall and 
Hampshire. The reason 
Gloucestershire have done so 
well is because Walsh has taken 
more than a 100 wickets. It is 
often the case tint if a fast 
bowler takes that many wickets, 
his side win the championship. 

"Having said that, 
Gloucestershire have done ex- 
tremely well to be where they 
are. I think they must have 
played out of their skins this 
season, especially as Curran has 
been unable to bowl all summer. 
They bat down the order, Athey 
is a good player and Lloyds has 
done well but they have uo 
outstanding batsman. They 
have competent day in. day out 
players." he said. 

"At Colchester last week we 
would have beaten Gloucester- 
shire if the weather had not 
intervened. The forecast is di- 
abolical again today in the west, 
where we are playing Somerset, 
but at least Gloucestershire and 
Surrey our main rivals, are also 
playing in the west. Neither 
county are likely to gain an 
advantage through the weather. 

"As for Surrey, I question 
their lack of success. A county 
with their ability and with two 
fast bowlers in Darke and Gray, 
fit and raring to go through 


matches, and although that do what they want them to do, resung a^tematdy, ^tould win 
httiwviri »c but their asset is thai they can trophies, he said. But i think 


- helped us perhaps against 
Essex in the other games it has 

* meant we weren't able to go 

1 for maximum bonus points. 
" and we've twice had to chase 
: virtually impossible targets. 

“Teams have taken advan- 
tage of our position. They 
know that we have got to keep 
: going, so as soon as we get in a 
■■ few blows they pul everyone 

2 back on the ropes and wait for 

- us to hit the ball in the air.” 

Graveney, however, is a 
: long way from conceding, but 

• - Gloucestershire's situation is 
;. bordering on the hopeless and 

takes some consolation from 
: the thought that the British 
weather may make nonsense 
r of all calculations. 

“What we want is to have a 
■ lead of more than 16 points 
when we’ve finished our pro- 
gramme so that Essex just 

- can’t win it by getting maxi- 
;■ mum bonus points from their 

games in hand. They will have 
_ to win one of them which will 
: put a bit- more pressure on 
' them." 

. But he knows that Essex's 
ability under pressure is one of 


not only bowl teams out when 
it’s turning, but they have 
people who can bat on spin- 
ning wickets, too. 

If pressed. Graveney would 
undoubtedly select Fletcher as 
the key individual in Essex's 
team, not only for bis batting 
but for his influence and 
tactical acumen, whether as 
acting captain when Gooch is 
on test duty, or as the resident 
sage and advisor when Gooch 
is present. 

Championship table 


Surrey will beat Gloucestershire 
at the Oval next week. I expect 
Clarke to bowl at them like he 
did against Lancashire in the ' 
NatWest semi- final. And, of 
course, the Surrey captain, Pat 
Pocock. is still a fine bowler." 

Fletcher attributes much of 
the success Essex have had this 
season to their bowlers. "Essex 
are one of the few counties to 
have an all-English attack. We 
have three Test oowlers and two 
good spinners but we may. 
strengthen our attack farther

Leicestershir against Derbyshire 
today. Gower is added to. the 
side who have just played

the match starting on time will 
depend .on a morning inspec- 
tion. The outfield is still under

If tiiere is an empty lane in the 
decathaJon 100 metres at five, 
pass nine this rooming, v* will 
know that the . train bringing 
Siggi Wentz, the latest West 
German bone, to beat Daley 
Thompson from the athletes’ 
village to the stadium, has 

broken down. . 

Although be points out the 
logic of a 2 S-tninhte train ride 
when the official athletes' bus is 
likely to get caught up in one of 
Stuttgart's notorious traffic 
jams, the use of public transport 
to get to what could he the most 
important decathtoo-'of his life 
seems like another example of 
the casual attitude which has 
made Wentz the darling of the 
German public and the despera- 
tion of the West German athlet- 
ics officials. 

Two years ago, Wentz was 
thundering round the famous 
NOrbmgring, after an im- 
promptu decision to enter a 
saloon car race, when he cor- 
nered too fast, causing the car to 
somersault 200 metres down the 
track. Cameras fanned in to 
record the gorey scene. But 
Wentz emaged unscathed, 
calmly lit a cigarette, and smiled 
for the camerasLApoplectic 
athletics officials wanted to ban 
him but the thought of losing an 
Olympic medal was an even 
worse proposition. Wentz won 
the bronze behind Daley 
Thompson and the inevitable 
Jurgen Hingsen. 

Another demoralizing defeat 
by Thompson, and a flood of 
criticism when be lost the West 
German team their most im- 
portant match against East Ger- 
many by dropping out after the 
first event, the 100 metres, last 
year seem to have affected 
Hingsen. 

Wentz beat him for the first 
time this year, with a score of 
8.590 points, bettered only by 
Thompson's two decathlons this 
season. Wolfgang Bergmann, 
the West German national coa- 
ch, admitted last weekend that 


With the leading East Ger- 
man, Uwe Frcimulh, admitting 
surprise that he wai-citeq se- 
lected. so poor is his forth, (hat

pion and world record holder

Sunday, but not before- »sti%. 

his inimitable' rtisuttS' dt L tbe trio 

of ideal opponents. ' 

The darkly handsomr Wentz 
is unmoved ' by Thompson's 
insults. They are better friends 
out of the arena than Thompson 
ever was with Hingsen; And 
Wentz is tryinga ritipurfogic to 
the problem of beating Thomp- 
son that he Imrag&Oo ho

which be is efeady better than 
me. and I am not gp&g to 
overstretch myself hi frying to 
-match him. D&Iey competes 
against himself and that' is whai 
I do too." 

Wentz has taken six months 
off his medical studies in’Maitiz 
to prepare for these virtual 
home-town champroiatnito —be 
was bom in neighbouring 
Rdthenbach — and has: made 
significant improvements' in his

height gives the Me advantage 
that he has over Thompson in

Tbompson.-

is trying to eradicate 


By John Goodbody 


Drug-taking has been the 
scouige of juodern sporL It 
almost certainly caused .the 
death of Tommy Simpson, 
Britain’s most successful cyclist, 
in the 1967 Tour de France, and 
has also damaged the health of 
many outstanding competitors. 
Drug-Making is also blatant 
cheating because it gives one 
person an unquestioned advan- 
e over another, 
behind the derision of the 
Test and County Cricket Board 
to interview Viv Richards, the 
West Indian and Somerset bats- 
man, over his refusal to undergo 
a drug test in a county match 
against Gloucestershire six 
weeks ago, lies an important 
principle. 

Britain has tried to rid itself of 
drug-taking in sport and has 
taken a lead in random testing. 
So strongly do the Government 
and the _ Sports Council feel 
about eliminating . the {Hague 
that this year they have paid all 
the costs, £205,000, for testing 
with an additional £100,000 for 
the updating of equipment. 

This year 64 people have been 
tested in cricket out of a total of 
3.500 British sportsmen and 
women: 5,000 people are sched- 


uled to be examined in 1987. 
Over the last year 16 people 
have been found positive in 
sports ranging from cycling to 
powerlifting, although some 
were positive in extenuating 
circumstances. The Sports 
Council .have said that any 
governing body refusing to sub- 
mit to dope-testing would have 
their government grant with- 
drawn for national squad train- 
ing weekends and foreign travel. 
The TCCB, being the body of a 
fully professional sport, do not 
get a government grant, . al- 
though the Cricket Council who 
are responsible for all levels of 
the game received £109^57 this 
year. ‘ 

Testing in cricket is random 
and this season it has been 
carried out with 16 different 
players at four separate matches, 
giving urine samples on four 
occasions. The drugs banned by 
the Sports Council follow the list 
of the International Olympic 
Committee and includes narcot- 
ics, analgesics (strong pain- 
killers), stimulant drugs which 
can momentarily improve 
performance, and anabolic ste- 
roids; which help' athletes to 
.recover more quickly from 


intensive exercise and add mus- 
cle weight. 

Although steroids might have 
limited use for cricketers, some 
stimulant drags could aid a 
player’s concentration ,and 
alertness. 

The Sports Council also test 
. for some drugs that can be used 
socially — like heroin and 
cocaine — and which could 
enhance sporting performances. 
However, the testers do not look 
for marquana during their ' 
examination. Ian Botham, 
Richards’ county colleague, who 
was suspended from first class 
cricket this you- for two months 
after admitting to smoking 
marijuana, would never have 
been found positive in a dope 
test. A spokeswoman for the 
Sports Council said yesterday: 
"The TCCB have not asked us 
to look for marijuana." 

The testing is carried out 
without prior notice in most 
cases, and is under strict medi- 
cal, supervision. Sportsmen and 
women have to declare any 
medication they' have taken 
over the previous three days and 
then give a urine sample which 
is divided between two- num- 


bered bottles. These sone signed 
and sealed. 

One bottle is analysed at the 
Drug Control Centre at Chelsea 
College under the direction of 
Professor Arnold Beckett and 
Dr David . Cowan; : whose 
pioneering work on drug detec- 
tion has been internationally 
recognized. 

If the testis positive, foe other 
bottle is then separately -exam- 
ined .in the 'presence -of the 
competitor or player and his 
representative or doctor. If frtis 
also proves positive then tbe 
governing bod} is informed. 
Refusing to be tested is consid- 
ered as though the urine. gave a 
positive test. 

The latest example of a Bptoo . 
being found positive came ai the 
recent Commonwealth Games 
. when Robin McDonald, a Scot- 
tish shooter, was found positive 
because he had taken bca- 
Wockere. McDonald had been 
prescribed the medicaraentfor a 
heart condition, but he did not 
declare this on his form ahd was 
disqualified from the free pistol 
event, the fust' Briton ever to be 
guilty in any ■ sport al the 
Olympic 1 “ 

Games.

Christie and Wells set 
for a sprint to gold 


Counting medals before 
they are banging around the 
at hlete s* necks is an invidious 
exercise, inviting disaster. But 
Linford Christie and Allan 
Wells’s wins in the first and 
third fastest times respectively 


From Fat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent, Stuttgart

paper this year, Antoine Rich- 
ard. of France. Christian 
Haas, of West Germany, and 
Vladimir Muravyev, of the 
Soviet Union. Wells even had

excellent start for British ath- 
letes in these 14th European 
championships, 

Wells was first up, in a blue 
version of the shorts, or rather 
“longs,’’ which have evoked 
reference to Wilson of the 
Wizard. Since we know Wells 
is 34, we cannot really pursue 
too closely comparison with 
the “ageless" Wilson, who, in 
any case, was a middle-dis- 
tance runner. 

But Wells's performances, 
at an age when former Olym- 
pic sprint champions are 
gravitating towards walking 
sticks, is evoking comparison 
with a higher literary figure, 
the fellow with the portrait in 
the attic. But there was noth- 
ing wild about Wells's run- 
ning. It was another 
beautifully controlled effort, 
made to look even better by 
the inadequacy of Aris Cefei, 
of Malta, in the lane next to 
Wells. 

In only his third full 100 
metres since limping away 
from the Olympic semi-final 
two years ago. Wells defeated 


finish, yet still recorded 10.31 
seconds into a headwind of l.S 
metres per second, his best 
performance of the year. 

Weils said afterwards: “To 
some extent that was a laying 
of the ghost of Los Angeles. 
But the real work begins in the 
semi-finals today. That was 
all pan of my preparation.” 
Wells's wife and coach, Mar- 
got, said she had predicted 
10.29 seconds and was pleased 
to be so close to that time. 

Steffen Bringmann, of East 
Germany, and Attila Kovacs. 
of Hungary, went close to 
Wells's time in winning the 


live in Marseilles and was just 
gening back into the sprinting 
stride which has made him the 
European record holder with 
10.00. But Woronin hardly 
had time to get into his stride 
after one false start He pulled 
up clutching the damaged left 
hamstring after barely -10 me- 
tres but still jogged dis- 
consolately down the track to 
congratulate the qualifiers. 

Britain’s third sprinter, 
Mike McFariane, third in the 
Commonwealth Games, bad 
to work hard to get that 
position and just qualified in 
the fourth heal in 10.48 sec- 
onds. The winner was the 
Soviet sprinter, Viktor 
Bryzgin, who has the fastest 
time in Europe this year of 
10.03. yet has not looked as 
good as that in his rare outings 
since doing it. He ran 10.35 
last night. 

But then Christie put every- 


wells s time in winning the But then Christie put every- 
next two heats in 10.34 and thing into perspective in the 
10.32 respectively, although final heat. He is 0.01 seconds 
into slighter headwinds. But behind Bryzgin on times this

drawn prior to the respective 
competition.

even with that pressure Chris-

watching the Frenchman, and 
still win easily, and impres- 
sively. 

The weather was changing 
markedly by the time the 
women sprinters got on the 
track. Going from dull to 
sunny during the low-key 
opening ceremony, attended 
by barely 30,000 people, half- 
filling the Neckar Stadium, it 
had become sultry for the 
men's races. But the women 
only just beat the rain which 
continued through most oflbe 
rest of the programme. And 
the British women did no-

CRICKET 


No action against Richards 
for refusing a drugs test 


Vivian Richards, the 
Somerset and West Indian 
batsman, has received no 
punishment for refusing to 
undergo a drugs test during 
the Britannic Assurance 
county championship game 
against Gloucestshire at Bris- 
tol on July 19. 

The Test and County 
Cricket Board disiplinary 
committee, meeting at Lord's 
yesterday, accepted that die 
usual dope-testing practice 
since its introduction to 
cricket in 1985 had not been 
observed, 

Donald Carr, the secretary 
of the TCCB, agreed that it 
was not in. the TCCB’s own 
regulations that a draw should 
be made with a member of the

this has been the normal

thought it was only right and

the draw being made and

know who had been taken out

The TCCB accepted 
Richards's assurance that he 
had nothing to bide and that

the future. A statement said:

the efforts being made by the 
cricketing authorities to con- 
trol the use of drugs in the 
game and he also apologized 
to Somerset and to the TCCB 
for what he had done and for 
any embarrassment caused ” 

The regulations for dope 
tests are particular to each 
sport, although the Sports 
Council fond the testing and 
are responsible for the admin- 
istration. A total of 64 cricket- 
ers have been tested this year. 

“This is the first time that 
the practice has been 
queried," Mr Carr said.“It is 
inevitably experimental. We 
are likely to find ways of 
improvement and of amend- 
ing the regulations.” 


EQUESTRIANISM 


Boost for 
the best 
of British 

By Jenny MacArthnr 

Today's Audi HIS National 
Hunter championship show, 
held on the Shropshire and 
West Midland showground at 
Shrewsbury, is intended as a 
major promotion for the Brit- 
ish-bred horse. 

For the first lime at Shrews- 
bury, all the hunter champion- 
ships — Young Stock. Mares 
and Foals, Ridden and Work- 
ing Hunters and H unter Shoe- 
ing — are being included in 
one show, made possible by 
the sponsors whose £10,000 
prize money has helped lure 
many of the coumiy’s top 
hunter breeders and 
exhibitors. 

There will also be an inter- 
hunt team relay competition 
in which eight teams are 
competing. Tomorrow, on the 
showground, the HIS hold 
their most important select 
sale of British-bred horses. 

The most significant 
championship is the Audi HIS 
Working Hunter futurity final 
in which Wendy Dalfimore 
with Mr and Mrs Andy 
Crofts's Bo ley HilL a six year 
old by Blaze, defend their title. 

The championship was con- 
ceived with the idea of provid- 
ing a nursery for future event 
horses. It is restricted to riders 
between the age of 1 7 and 25 
and horses aged between four 
and eight but exceeding 15 
hands. The hunters are judged 
partly on their confirmation 
but much more so on their 
performance over a course of 
natural fences, which includes 
a water jump. 

Twenty-six horses have 
qualified for today's class in 
which Boley Hill, the winner 
at The Royal Show this year, 
looks to have a good chance of 
a second win. 


SQUASH RACKETS 

Jahangir 
gets a 
testing 

Front a Special Correspondent 
Karachi 

It is more than -five years 
since Jahangir Khan twice lost 
a game in one tournament. 
Yesterday it .happened when 
Qamar Zaman produced at 
f the age of 35 perhaps his best 
performance since his heyday 
I as world number one. Jahan- 
| gir eventually got home 9-6, 9- 
1 6, 4-9, 9-7 in 73 minutes ol 
stroke-making. 

Matches with Zaman tend 
to be like that Matches with 
Jahangir this week have of- 
fered his opponents glimmers 
of hope, panly because of the 
ring rustiness that has devel- 
oped since his last world grand 
prix tournament, the British 
Open in April. 

Against that Jahangir hit 
more advenrurously. But 
there are also mistakes and at 
6-7 in the fourth game it 
seemed he might be taken the 
full distance for the first time 
since Hidayat Jahan managed 
it in 1982. 

He will today be tested by 
Phil Kenyon, the British na- 
tional champion, in the semi- 
final. Kenyon produced his 
second successive encourag- 
ing performance, and his sec- 
ond against an Australian. 
After beating Steve Bowditch, 
the world number 16 in 
straight games on Monday he 
beat Tristan Nancarrow, the 
rising world number 21, 9-2, 
9-6, 9-7. 


Lendl snub 
to country 

Ivan Lend! has refused to 
play for Czechoslovakia’s Da- 
vis Cup team against Sweden 
on October 3-5, Jan Kodes, 
the non-playing captain said 
in Prague yesterday. “Lendl 
says he now has another 
programme.” said Kodes. 
Lendl, the world's leading 
ranked player, has not played 
for his country since Czecho- 
slovakia was white-washed by 
West Germany a year ago.

of Ireland manager, ends a

MOTOR RACING 

Learning 
from the 
wash-out 

By John Blmtsden 

Birmin gham City CouDtiTs 
efforts to bring on-the-streets 
motor rating jo main la n d 
Britain at the weekend may 
have ended in a wash-obt, bnt 
this should not be allowed to 
jeopardize their intention , to 
repeat the exercise for the next 
four years. ' ■ 4 

It was the crueflest mis- 
fbrtune that the August Bank 
Holiday meeting should have 
suffered such - appallinj 
weather and- no amount oi 
careful, pre-planning could 
have prevented stidi driving 
conditions. ’ • •••' 

Street rating 'faas . obvious 
attractions, not the least of 
which is the opportunity for 
load .inhabitants to watch 
motor sport on “their” roads, 
often without even having to 
leave their homes. But ft also 
brings particular ■ problems. 
One is that the^ circuit dan 
have little, if any/ permanent 
installations, so that a mam- 
moth budding job is called for 
in die days preceding a race 
-meeting and a rapid 'dis- 
mantling operation^ immedi- 
ately afterwards. - • ' • ' • 
Another drawback is that 
incessant heavy rain can cause 
drivers more severc visibility 
■problems on circuits lined 
with barriers than. on. those 
with wide run-off areas; an 
accident on a . street circuit is 
. likely to end with the disabled 
car stiH an the circuit instead 
of beyond the edge of it, and 
consequently a hazard to driv- 
ers stfllraring.-particulaily' so 
when visibility is so poor. .. . 

This was the situation —one 
car crashing into another 
which had already been aban- 
doned — which caused the. 
Clerk of the Course quite 
rightly to- -bait the race on 
Monday. It would have been 
the same if the race -had taken 
place at Monaco, where infect 
heavy rain caused, the 1-984 
race to be abandoned after 31 
of the scheduled 78 laps. It 
should also bo pointed oat 
that freak weather conditions 
have, from time to time.
