• Anatoly Shcharansky walked to freedom across 
the icy Gtienicke bridge in Berlin yesterday as part 
of a complicated exchange of nine prisoners 
between East and West. 

• Great care was taken by the Americans to en- 
snre that he was not treated as one of the spies 
who were swapped along with him. 

• After being reunited with his wife, A vital, he 
flew off to the sunshine of Israel.

biggest, noisiest welcome campaign was becoming an 

since the late President embarrassment to the Krem- 

Anwar Sadat of Egypt arrived bn. 


Mr Anatoly Shcharansky 
got ont of a yellow minibus at 
the East German end of the 
Glienicke bridge. 

The appropriate ingredi- 
ents for an East-West prison- 
er exchange were all around 
him. There was the gaunt 
iron bridge, spanning a frozen 
lake and finking East Germa- 
ny with West Berlin. The son 
was pale, the tempera tare 
bekm freezing. AU wound 
were woods. 

On the fust occasion that 
this remote place was used 
for the; purpose, m 1962, the 
U2 idiot Gary rowers and the 
Soviet "-master spy" Rudolph 
Abel walked towards each 
other from opposite ends of 
the bridge, did not look at 
each other when they passed 
in the middle, got into cars, 
and were driven away to 
obscurity - the scene watched 
by a few reporters from a 
West Berlin newspaper. 

This time the powerfully 
symbolic proceedings were 
watched by several hundred 
television crews, herded be- 
hind steel harriers on either 
side of die road leading from 
the bridge 


The US Ambassador to 
East Germany ushered him 
into his car and drove him to 
the middle of the bridge. 
There he go into into the car 
of the US Ambassador to 
West Germany. It was then 
that Mr Shcharansky came 
folly into view: a short man In 
a for hat and dark overcoat 
talking vigorously. The am- 
bassador guided him by the 
shoulder and held open the 
car door. East German and 
Soviet officials remained a 
blur in the background. 

The ambassador's 
Mercedes, accompanied by 
West Berlin police care and 
American military vehicles, 
swept past ns down the 
wooded road towards Terapel- 
bof Airport, the flight to the 
American airfield at Frank- 
furt, Mr Shch&ransky's first 
embrace of his wife since 
1974, and the flight. 

Thirty minutes after Mr 
Shcharansky, we were passed 
by the bus containing the 
freed Western spies - five 
anonymous figures, of varying 
ages, looking like a represen- 
tative group of the West 
German middle class. 


‘Sogat in 
serious 
position’ 

The 36-sirong executive of ' 
the print union Sogat*$2 was 
in emergency session late last 
night after all bank accounts 
in its name were frozen. 

This followed the High 
Court sequestration of its £17 
million assets on Monday for 
ignoring an injunction order- 
ing it to hall the blacking of 
News International's four 
national titles by its members 
at newspaper wholesalers. 

Disclosure of the freezing 
of Sogat's bank accounts was 
made by Miss Brenda Dean, 
its genera] secretary. 

Miss Dean, who said she 
expected help from foe TUC. 
added:“We are in a serious 
position but do not accept 
foal Sogai is down." 

In another development 
yesterday, leaders of the i 
electricians' union agreed to 
abide by directives of foe 
TUC.This means the threat 
of suspension from th e TU C 
has been averted by EETPU. 
But electricians at Wapping 
now doing foe work of 
traditional print workers will 
not be told to stop working]

The biggest teachers' union 
said yesterday it would take 
part in long-term talks on 
teachers' pay if a provisional 
Advisory, Conciliation and 
Abrilralion Service (Acas) 
deal is ratified later this 
month. 

The National Union of 
Teachers '(NUT) opposes foe 
I9&5 settlement reached at 
Acas last month. For foe past 
year it has boycotted talks on 
a restructuring package, 
which includes a definition of 
teachers' duties and appraisal 
of performance. 

It has opposed any kind of 
trade-off between conditions 
of service and pay. 

But it has now changed its 
mind. Mr Gordon Green, its 
president, said: "The NUT 
will have to take part in the 
Acas long-term talks because 
we will have to represent the 
majority of teachers who 
reject foe pay element." 

There was some doubt 
yesterday, however, about 
whether it would be allowed 
to take part. Mr Stephen 
Rouse, speaking for foe local 
authority employers, said foe 
NUT was not a party to foe 
Acas deal and could not 
simply declare it was walking 
into talks. 

“Can the NUT come in if 
they are not going to sub- 
scribe to foe whole agree- 
ment?" he asked. The deal 
specifies that immediate steps 
should be taken to stop all 
industrial action and return 
to norma) work. 

"It is a serious question 
whether the parties to the 
Acas agreement would accept 
foe participation of foe NUT 
unless they subscribe to the 
whole agreement.” 

He also questioned wheth- 
er it was desirable to have the 
NUT present "They attend 
things they disagree with in 
order to gain information to 
attack them." he said. 

The pay element of the 
Acas deal is an offer of 6.9 
per cent rising to 8.5 per cent 
by the end of March. The rest 
of the settlement commits the 
teacher unions to talks on 
conditions and a new salary 


structure, under the supervi- 
sion of a panel of three wise 
men. 

If foe NUT was to contin- 
ue to boycott such talks, it 
would be leaving foe five 
smaller leaching unions to 
decide what comprises foe 
teachers' job and salary 
structure. 

The local authority em- 
ployers must be hoping that 
by agreeing to a package 
aimed at solving foe long- 
term problems of foe profes- 
sion. they will receive foe 
£1.25 billion which the Gov- 
ernment is promising for this 
purpose. 

Although the NUT execu- 
tive has not yet approved foe 
union's new line, it is likely 
to do so. Mr Fred Jarvis, the 
union's general secretary, 
said; “Participation in foe 
talks will be on the basis of 
fighting to foe last ditch to 
save what we can on condi- 
tions of service and pay from 
an agreement to which we 
were not signatories.” 

The NUT is not prepared 
to agree to teachers' being 
required to do duties previ- 
ously considered voluntary, 
such as cover for absent 
colleagues, attendance at 
parents' and staff meetings, 
and sports activities in ex- 
change for desirable pay 
restructuring This is because 
it would, lose a valuable 
industrial relations weapon 
for probably temporary fi- 
nancial gain. 

The second biggest leach- 
ing union, foe National 
Association of School- 
masters/Union of Women 
Teachers is balloting on 
whether or not to accept foe 
Acas deal. 

• Nearly 150.000 children 
will miss lessons today as 
Scottish teachers continue 
their strike campaign for an 
independent pay review. 

About 8.000 members of 
the Educational Institute of 
Scotland will be involved in 
industrial action affecting 450 
schools. The main areas hit 
will be Glasgow and Edin- 
burgh. 


Stockton in surprise 
defeat for Shops’ Bill 


By Richard Evans 
Lobby Reporter 

Lord Stockton, the former 
Prime Minster, yesterday 
helped inflict an embarrass- 
ing defeat for the Govern- 
ment's Sunday trading 
legislation- 

He voted in favour of an 
amendment to the Shop's 
Bill, proposing the retention 
of certain protective rights for 
Sunday workers, which was 
passed by 121 votes to 120. 

Lord Stockton did not 
speak during the Lords de- 
bate on the amendment, 
proposed by Lord Denning, 
former Master of the Rolls, 


but his surprise decision not 
to support the Government 
proved crucial. 

The Shop's Bill, which will 
open up Sunday trading, 
proposes the abolition of 
various sections of the Shops 
Act 1950, involving half 
holidays, meal times and 
working hours. 

Lord Denning’s amendment 
proposed that the protections 
in the Act should continue. 
He said shop workers were, 
for the most part, unorga- 
nized, had no protection from 
trade unions, and needed the 
protection of the law.

Substantial secret 
shareholdings have been built 
up in Westland, the helicop- 
ter company, the Slock Ex- 
change disclosed yesterday on 
foe eve of the shareholders' 
meeting in London to decide 
foe future of their company. 
Three Swiss banks, acting for 
anonymous clients, now own 
a major chunk of foe busi- 
ness. 

The Stock Exchange also 
issued a strong, reminder to 
Westland shareholders of. foe 
rule which prohibits people 
who. directly or indirectly, 
bold mote than 10 per cent of 
a company's shares from 
voting on matters ‘in which 


they have an interest. 

Coming ahead of today's 
crucial vote on foe* board's 
proposed link with Sikorsky 
of the United Slates and Fiat, 
this was a clear warning to 
these big new shareholders 
that the Slock Exchange will 
be watching out for any 
breach of the rule. 

After the furious slock 
market activity of the last few 
weeks, Westland shares are 
concentrated in remarkably 
few hands. As the. supporters 
of foe Sikorsky deal., and 
their opponents who favour 
the alternative European con- 
sortium plan for the compa- 
ny, hat e straggled to buy 
shares and tbe. votes that go 


with them, most institutions 
and private shareholders 
have bailed out.* 

The Stock Exchange re- 
cently launched a detailed 
inquiry’ into Westland shares, 
and now it has disclosed that 
by the end of January 79 per 
cenishares were owned by 
just 12 separate holders. It 
was already known foai more 
than 59 per cent was concen- 
trated jn six holdings, foe 
largest being those of Mr 
Alan Bristow, who supports 
the European consortium, 
and Hanson Trust, which .is 
backing foe board. 

But the presence of six 
more major shareholders has 
stunned most City analysts.

Giris aged under Id who go 
to see their family doctor over 

contraception or abortion yes- 
terday lost their right to 
complete confidentiality from 

their doctors. 

The General Medical 
Ctameff changed its rales so 
that jf a doctor does not 
consider the giri to be 
sufficiently mature to under- 
stand all tbe issues involved, 
then be may tell the patient's 
parents about the consulta- 
tion. 

Mrs Victoria G il tick. Ro- 
man -Catholic campaigner

Ung for under Id's without 


parental consent, said the 
news of the GMCs recom- 
mendations was 

"marvellous." 

"It will give parents an 
enormous sigh ®f relief that 
their- own CP's and the CFs 
In the ctinics are not obliged 
to keep silenL 
"They tvfU be contacted if 
by touring a child away the 
doctor would be potting her at 
risk." 

The British Medical Asso- 
ciation. however, described

as "deeply wwryfeg". by the

the doctor over contraception 
and abortion into a lottery for 
a girl aged under Id. She will 
not know until the end of the 
coaaritatioa whether the doc- 
tor wflj respect her confidence 

The GMCs new guidance 
follows the Law Lords' rating 
late last year that doctors 
could, under certain condi- 
tions, prescribe contraceptives 
to giris under Id without 
telling their parents, provid- 
ing the giri was. sufficiently 
mature, in the doctor's judg- 
ment, to understand w hat was 
involved: 

The GMC in its new 
guidance approved yesterday 
follows that line. Where a 




doctor believes the patient to 
understand folly what is 
involved, he may, after seek- 
ing to persuade her to (ell her 
parents, prescribe treatment 
without informing them. But- 
if the doctor does not believe 
the girl is sufficiently mature 
the GMC now says "He may 
decide to disclose the infor- 
mation learned from the 
consultation.'' Tbe ruling 
overturns the position the 
GMC council held prior to 
before legal moves by Mrs 
Gftlk-k to try to prevent 
doctors from providing the 

contraceptive pUl without pa- 
rental consent. 

Then, the GMCs rating 
was that any doctor who 




breached the confidentiality 
of a patient under 16 in 
matters of contraception 
would have laid himself open 
to disciplinary action by the 
council unless he could justify 
his action by exceptional 
arcnmstances- 

Sir John Walton, president 
of the GMC said yesterday 
the council had taken its new 
position on legal advice. He 
hoped that in the great | 
majority of most cases doc- 
tors would still preserve 
confidentiality. He conceded, | 
however, that H was likely 
that some giris would not new 
go to the doctor, for fear that 
their confidences would not 
be maintained.

Benn attacks Kinnock 
for ‘abandoning

By Philip Webster, Political Reporter 

Mr Tony Benn yesterday He added that the “struggle Derbyshire, and he later

criticized Mr Neil Kinnock's 
leadership of the Labour 
Party, claiming that he was 
moving it towards a coali- 
tionist position at the ex- 
pense of true socialist 
policies. 

■ As the Labour far left 
began to mobilize for a 
campaign against a fresh 
wave of Militant expulsions. 
Mr Benn attacked the party

■been “frightened” by the 
grave crisis facing Britain 
into a “huddle at the top”.

His speech came two days 
after Mr Kinnock, in a 
television interview, wel- 
comed a comparison of 
himself with Franklin Roose- 
velt the former American 
President and the politics of 
the “New Deal”, and in so 
doing outraged many on the 
left of his party. Mr Benn did 
not mention Mr Kinnock by 
name in his speech, given to 
the 1986 Industrial Mission 
Association at Swanwick, 


Labour challenge on 
Militant candidate 

He said the decision by the 
NEC organization sob-com- 
mittee to defer any recom- 
mendation was being 
interpreted in Bradford as an 
attempt to assess whether Mr 
Wall was a suitable candi- 
date. 

“That is unacceptable to 
os", be said. “We think Pat 
Wall is the best candidate 
and we are confident he will 
win the seat with ease. We 
shall protest that our right to 
choose the candidate of our

election. 

. Mr Wall, aged SI, who 
foiled to win the seat for 
Labour in 1983, is being 
required to submit himself for 
interview before he is en- 
dorsed for a second attempt. 


Yesterday Mr Bill Reed, a 
spokesman for the Bradford 
North party, said: “We are qaestM)n -

bare taken this step." astounded by the decision. 


denied in a BBC interview 
that he had made a personal 
attack on anybody. 

His target, however, was 
unmistakable. 

He said that anyone listen- 
ing carefully to the speeches 
by “some leading parliamen- 
tarians of all parties” would 
have been struck at the 
similarity of their analyses 

They believed the present 
economic system could be 
made to work if it was 
“stiffened by state support 
and softened by a touch of 
compassion". 

He added: “All are express- 
ing admiration for the mod- 
els of capitalism found in 
other countries, from 
Roosevelt's America in the 
days of the new deal to 
modem Japan, where a harsh 
market economy has been 
transplanted on to the old 
feudalism". 

But those policies, which 
had been advocated and 
implemented from Churchill 
to Callaghan, had been tried 
and had failed. 

“ft is easy to see why the 
British, American and Brus- 
sels establishments should be 
rubbing their hands with glee 
at tbe prospect of the return 
of coalitionist policies in 
Britain, for that indicates 
clearly to them that there will 
be no changes made which 
might endanger their present 
power and wealth."

Hammond 
to obey 
TUCon 
Wapping 

By Michael Horsnell 

Leaders of tbe electricians' 
union, whose members are 
helping to produce News 
International's four national 
newspapers, decided unani- 
mously yesterday fo abide by 
conditions set last week by 
the TUG which found the 
union gnOty of coed act detri- 
mental to the anion move- 
ment. 

The decision, after a two- 
and-a-half-honr scheduled 
meeting of the EETPU exec- 
utive, means that the onion 
has averted suspension from 
the TUC. 

But the carefully -drafted 
TUC directive by which the 
electricians have voted to 
abide means that the 170 
EETPU members working at 
News International's new 
Wapping plant will be able to 
carry on prodoring The 
Times, The Sunday Times, 
The San and the News of the 
World. 

The TUG which found the 
anion guilty of five out id 
seven charges from the tradi- 
tional print unions, alleging 
rtiflf the electricians had 
taken their jobs, told the 
EETPU: 

Not to assist further in 
staff recruitment for NI at its 
Wapping and Glasgow 
plants; 

O Not to recruit NI employ- 
ees who are not trades 
unionists or members of 
another union; 

• To inform members at the 
plants that they are doing 
work normally done by print 
union members; 

• Not to enter into agreement 
with NI without the agree- 
ment of the print unions. 

0 Not to enter into anBatera] 
negotiations with NI where 
other unions would be de- 
prived of existing recognition. 

But. critically, the TUC 
general council avoided giving 
an instruction that EETPU 
members should not cross 
print union picket lines or 
should withdraw their labour. 

The EETPU had given a 
warning that it would sue the 
TUC if it were told to call out 
its members.

yesterday that it wishes to

£52m for 
crime fight 

By Peter Evans 
Home Affairs 

Correspondent 

Another £52miBion is to be 
spent by the Government in 
1986-87 to provide up to 
2.000 extra police officers 
and increase the capabilities 
of the force. 

Tbe aim is to bring forces 
up to strength is. the fight 
against drug trafficking, ter- 
rorism and dealing with 
public disorder. 

The Horae Office is to 
provide an extra £30nuIIion 
for the 43 forces in England 
and Wales and £22nuQion 
will come in a Hock grant 
from the Department of the 
Environment. 

Though the Government 
wants the money to go on the 
police, the actual amount to 
be spent win depend on tool 
authorities; 

Among the metropolitan 
authorities the increase will 
vary from £1.1 million for 
Northumbria to £3^tmlfion 
for Greater Manchester. 

An extra £I7_9miUion will 
be available for the Metropol- 
itan Police from central 
government, which will 
transfer some of the financial 
burden from the ratepayers. 

Among the non-metropoli- 
tan counties, Essex will 
benefit most with £l_2milhon 
more government money. 


immigrant 

appeals 

MPs who wish to dispute a 
decision, to send home an 

immigrant denied entry to 
Britain will have 10 days to 
make a written appeal to the 
i Government, under new 
i guidelines announced yester- 
day by Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary. 

MPs were accused by a 
Home Office minister last 
year of using their influence 
to enable people to enter 
Britain who had no right to 
do so. 

“The statutory power to 
admit a person to this 
country is vested in the 
i mm i g r a tion officer, not the 
minister.” Mr Hurd said . 
“When, therefore, a person 
refused entry has no right of 
appeal in this country, the 
minister will not normally 
intervene to overturn the 
decision of an immigration 
officer unless there is new 
and compelling evidence.” 

An MP has the right to ask 
for a summary of a case from 
the immigration service and 
then to decide whether there 
are legal grounds for taking 
up the case with the Horae 
Office. IF he decides that he 
wishes to make a written 
appeal, action to remove the 
passenger will be deferred for 
10 working days. 

Since 1980 the number of 
interventions by MP in such 
cases has risen from L.000 a 
year to about 4,500 in 1983.

Cuckney sorry for 
transcript ‘error’ 

By Richard Evans, Lobby Reporter 
A Conservative MP who himself and his wife, and the 


was wrongly threatened with 
a libel writ by Westland 
received an unreserved apol- 
ogy yesterday from Sir John 
Cuckney, the company's 
chairman. 

In . a television interview, 
Mr Robert Adley, MP for 
Christchurch, had com- 
plained that Sir John's advice 
to Mrs Margaret Thatcher 
and Mr Leon Brittan was 
“fundamentally flawed". But

Adley yesterday. Sir John 
admitted a genuine and 
“most unfortunate" error had 
taken place in the transcript. 
“I would ask you to accept

Tax ‘could 
drop’ with 
dole queue 

By Stephen Goodwin 

If the unemployed were in 
work and the Treasury saved 
the cost of their enforced 
idleness, income tax could be 
cut from 30p to 12p in the 
pound, Mr Roy Hattersley, 
the shadow Chancellor, said 
yesterday. 

Speaking on the eve of 
today's debate on the econo- 
my and unemployment, Mr 
Hattersley asked if ft had 
never struck the Chancellor. 
Mr Nigel Lawson, that tbe 
prudent policy was to put 
Britain back to work. 

“Why does the Chancellor 
of the Exchequer, when be 
could increase production, 
reduce unemployment and 
save money at the same time, 
choose to waste money and 
reduce output in order to keep 
men and women out of 
work?" 

Mr Hattersley bases his 
reduction in taxation on 
government figures from 
which it is calculated that 
every nnemployed man or 
woman costs the country 
£6,300 to £7,000 a year in 
benefits and loss of taxes. 
The total cost is pnt at 
between £21 -Sbillion and 
£24 billion a year with a 
further £3©bfllion lost to the 
nation from reduced output 
Mr Hattersley, speaking at 
a Fabian Society conference 
in London, accused Mr 
Lawson of nuraing away from 
answering questions in 
today's Opposition debate, in 
which the Treasury case wfil 
be pnt by Mr John 
MacGregor, tbe Chief Secre- 
tary. 

“The most arrogant Chan- 
cellor this century allows 
other ministers to defend the 
indefensible policies for 
which he is responsible".

Britain has world’s 
worst state schools, 
managers are told 


developed 


. The headmaster of a lead- 
mg public school accused 
Bmam yesterday of havii 
the worst staie-maintaii 
education in the 
world 

Dr John Rae, head of 
Westminster School, told a 
one-day “Industry Year” 
conference of the British 
institute of Management that 
the system forced children to 
specialize too early. It also 
railed to recognize the impor- 
tance of continuing teaching 
of mathematics and modern 
languages. 

“I think we have in this 
country one of, or possibly 
the worst publicly-main- 
tained education system of 
any developed country in the 
world”, he said. 

Dr Rae, who is soon to 
leave his post at Westminster 
described Lhe situation as 
“critical”. He said: “We need 
a government or central 
authority to take the educa- 
tion system by the scruff of 
the neck." 

. Dr Rae quoted compara- 
tive figures and suggested 
that in the United Kingdom 
relatively few children stayed 
on at school after the age of 
16 because the system had 
"so little to offer" 

In Japan, he said, 95 per 
cent of children stayed on 
beyond the official leaving 
age of IS and in the United 
Slates the figure was 90per 
cent, while in the United 
Kingdom only 22. per cent of 


children continued their edu- 
cation after the age Of 16. 

"Most frightening of all", 
he added, children in coun- 
tries such as Japan continued 
wfth a broad curriculum until 
they reached 18, while in 
Britain children were forced 
to specialize in just a few 
subjects. 

• Up to 85,000 more teach- . 
ere are needed if schools are 
to cope adequately with 
disruptive children and those 
with special learning difficul- 
ties. the Commons Select 
Committee on Education was 
told yesterday (Stephen 
Good win, of . our . Political 
Staff, writes). 

The “impossible task" of 
making progress in mixed 
ability classes of 30 or more 
and containing children with 
psychological or physical dif- 
ficulties was described to the 
committee by the National 
Council for Special Educa- 
tion. 

The council's 


given 

there 

more 

adults 


— s general phi- 
losophy is that children with 
special needs should be 
taught within ordinary class- 
es, but Mr John Garrett, its 
general secretary, told the 
committee that in a full class 
of children with a wide range 
of abilities, backgrounds and 
personalities, those with spe- 
cial needs could not receive 
the necessary help. 

If more children with 
special needs were to be 
integrated in mainstream pri- 


mary schools and 
effective education 
would need to be 
teachers and other 
working together in classes 
where at present one teacher 
struggled to meet the needs of 
all. Mr Garrett said. 

The select committee is 
investigating achievement in 
primary schools. The council, 
an educational charity with 
more than 5,000 members, 
estimates that 18 per cent of 
pupils have learning difficul- 
ties or other problems. 

Mr Harry Greenway, Con- 
servative MP for Ealing 
North, who is a former 
teacher, suggested that ah 
extra 85,000 teachers would 
be needed to meet 
thecoundTs objectives in all 
the country's schools. 

• A worsening shortage of 
physics teachers in secondary 
schools is affecting Britain’s 
economic prospects. Sir 
Keith Joseph, Secretary of 
State for Education and 
Science, was told 
yesterday(Our Education 
Correspondent writes). 

An estimated 600 posts are 
* vacant and a further 1,000 
vacancies are hidden because 
non-physicists are being used 
to teach physics. 

"Physics is fundamental to 
the nation's wealth-producing 
industries in both the short 
and long term". Sir Alec 
' Merrison, president of the 
Institute of Physics, said in a 
letter to Sir Keith.

Drug needle plan 
in Aids battle 

FhmThnDHsIVeiidGeSdean 
Newcastle upon Tyne 


A plan to £ive syringes to 
drug addicts m an attempt to 
limit the spread of Aids is 
being considered by -Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security o fficials. 

Medical experts are in- 
creasingly concerned about 
the spread of the acquired 
immune deficiency syndrome 
through contaminated nee- 
dles shared by addicts. 

In Edinburgh, 51 per cent 
of addicts tested lor traces of 
the infection have been found 
positive, the highest figure in 
Britain. 

Calls for -syringes to be 
made more easily available to 
addicts were made* yesterday 


that the spread of Aids 
through addicts’ needles re- 
quired urgent action. 

In an interview later. Dr 
Acheson said that the depart- 
ment was keeping an open 
mind about providing sy- 
ringes. “There are obviously 
great difficulties because 
some people would think we 
were encouraging people to 
inject illegal drugs’*. 

Mr Bill Nefles,' of the 
Standing Committee on Drug 
Action, which represents drug 
agencies, said: "By providing 
more syringes we would not 
be condoning .the behaviour 
of addicts but trying to keep 
them alive until, they are id a 


at Britain's biggest conference. r condition to lack the habit. 1 


on Aids, in -Newcastle upon 
Tyne, sponsored by the 
Department of Health and 
Social Security. 

Dr Donald Acheson, chief 
medical officer at the depart- 
ment, told the c on fere n ce 


-His view was that addicts 
should be encouraged to 
exchange dirty needles for 
new ones at authorized drug 
centres, as is the. practice in 
Amsterdam, where Aids in- 
fection among addicts is low. 


Two-way 
mirrors 
in house 

Lynda Swindell, a former 
social worker, had a system 
of two-way mirrors in the 
house where she had sexual 
intercourse with a boy aged 
14, a court was told yester- 
day. 

Miss Swindell, aged 29, 
secretly filmed young guests 
with a video camera as they 
undressed and took baths, it 
was alleged at Cardiff Crown 
Court. 

The police were alerted 
after one startled lodger was 
surprised to see himself on 
screen as he played through 
one of the tapes by chance. 
Mr Stephen Hopkins, for the 
prosecution, said. 

Miss Swindell, formerly 
employed by Gwent County 
Council social services, de- 
nies indecently assaulting the 
boy at her home in Wyn£ 
ham Road, Canton. Cardiff, 
between January and the end 
of February last year. 

The jury was warned that 
they might find the videos 
“offensive and disgusting” as 
they viewed them in court. 
Holes bored in a bathroom 
and bedroom wall bad been 
disguised by mirror tiles, 
allowing a totally unobserved 
view into both rooms from 
another bedroom. 

The jury was told Miss 
Swindell, now of MarytwiU 
Lane, Caswell, Swansea, had 
invited the boy to the bouse 
offering £5 for weekend 
decorating so that be could 
clear a fine for burglary after 
a juvenile court appearance. 

The case continues today. 


UK falls 
behind on 
robots 

The rate at which Britain is 
installing robots on manufac- 
turing production lines is 
falling and the country is 
trailing behind its main 
competitors, principally the 
United States and West 
Germany. 

The findings are dfedosed 
in the latest annual review of 
the British . Robot Associa- 
tion. The United Kingdom 
robot population was 3,017 
Tpat year, less than half the 
8,800 robots in use in West 
Germany and just over 15 
per cent of .the 20,000 
installed in the US. 


Robot saturation in many 
areas of the car industry has 
been Named for the slow- 
down. although there is little 
reason for the poor response 
in die electronics industry. 

Despite limited opportuni- 
ties, British robot manufac- 
turers last year held 35 per 
cent of the home market 


Whooping 
cough 
cases up 

By Onr Social 

Services Correspondent 

The Department of Health 
again urged parents yesterday 
to easare that their duhtren 
are vaccinated against whoop- 
ing coagh as an epidemic of 
the disuse took a new hold. 

Official fi g anat disclosed 
yesterday show that cases are 
once again running at more 
than 1,000 a week after a 
relative tall at Christmas. 

A total of 4.S69 children 
have contracted the disease 
since the start of the year and 
the epidemic threatens to be 
wane than the last big 
outbreak in 1981-82. 


Cheque books win be on 
their way out by the mid of 
the decade and within 10 
years three-quarters of the 
banking public will be using 
electronic terminals for all 
their withdrawals. 

These conclusions, in a 
study by the management 
consultants Arthur Andersen, 
show that banking customers 
in Britain and continental 
Europe have accepted the 
electronic tetters— automated 
teller machine&-very easily. 

The electronic h anlring ser- 
vices represent the beginning 
of a consumer electronic 
revolution which will cover 
all areas of banking and 
personal finance- The study 
adds that there will also be a 
l expansion in the number 
ot electronic terminals at the 
checkouts of supermarkets 
and high street retailers— 
called point of sale terminals. 

According to the study, 
within 10 years more than 
half of banking customers 
will be making the i r . pur- 
chases at checkouts using 


electronic terminals. 

Home banking will flour- 
ish. where transactions can be 
made via the television, and 
will be used by one in four 
banking customers with per- 
sonal accounts. 

All banking cashiers, even 
in the most modest bank, will 
be using electronic terminals. 

The cost of processing a 
cheque, now about 50p, has 
spurred the banks into elec- 
tronics. Many banks have 
given their customers an 
incentive to use the electronic 
machines by either not charg- 
ing for withdrawals or charg- 
ing less than for processing a 
conventional cheque.

• The Wflmslow Card, the 
first credit card in the 
country to be operated by a 
town, is growing in populari- 
ty by the week, according to 
its operators. 

They says the card, used in 


Wilmslow, Cheshire, has im- 
pressed a business consor- 
tium from Tunbridge Wells, 
which now plans to start its 
own. 

Mr Paul Robinson, presi- 
dent of the Wilmslow Cham - 
ber of Trade and the board 
operating the card, said 
yesterday: “We wish them all 
the luck, in the world; in feet, 
it all helps to give us more 
credibility." 

The Cheshire team, which 
launched the card on Septem- 
ber 15 last year, initially 
aimed at a target of 3,000 
card carriers in an eight-mile 
catchment area of the town. 
The figure is now 5,000 and 
rising. 

There is also a steady 
growth in the number of 
retailers entering the scheme, 
with a present figure of more 
than 100 out of 130 retail 
outlets. 

Mr Robinson said: “Plans 
are being drawn up at the 
moment to introduce the 
card to more professional 
bodies”. 


Whitehall 
comedy 
replaces 
Hitler 

By Patricia Clough 

Hitler has gone from tht 
Royal Box, the tanks from 
the circle and the Gestapo 
from the lavatories. 

Off has come the thick 
black paint and, after four 
years as a museum of war, 
London's Whitehall Theatre 
is being retailed to all its 
elegant 1930s art deco glory. 

The theatre, tong known as 
the home of British fence, wifi 
reopen on March 5 with J. B. 
Priestley's When we an 
Married. 

The building was bought 
for £500^)06 and restored for 
another £500,000 by the 
Maybox theatre group* which 
also recently acquired the 
Albery, Criterion, Piccadilly 
and Wyadham’s theatres. 

The managing director, Mr 
Ian Albery, a descendant of 
the Albery and Wyndham 
families, said yesterday that 
it wOl remain primarily as a 
theatre of comedy. 

The stylish blade and silver 
decor by the architect E. A. 
Stone has been restored as 
closely as possible to the 
original, although in midnight 
bine and silver. Stucco lotus 
Bower motifs and panels have 
been picked out in gold, rose 
and silver by the artist 
Felicity Youett. 

The restoration of the 
Whitehall starts a new chap- 
ter in a chequered history. 
Opened in September 1930, it 
saw a long series of success- 
fill comedies until the Second 
World War, and then became 
famous for Phyllis Dixey’s 
striptease performances. 
Nudity was permitted only 
so long as the performer did 
not move a nrasde, so Phyllis 
Dixey gracefully removed her 
clothes one by one, carrying 
on a comic dfategisa with the 
audience, then froze into an 
instant tableau. 

In the 1950s and 1960s the 
theatre staged Brian Rix's 
forces. 

In the 1970's, it was taken 
over. by the impresario Paul 
ymond, who caused a stir 
h the West End's first 
node production of Pyjama 
Tops. 

He later tamed ft into an 
exhibition of First and Sec- 
ond World War memorabilia, 
but the Theatre Trust suc- 
cessfully complained that that 
that breached the theatre's 
licensing conditions and 
Maybox was able to acquire 
ft. 


Cathedral 
designers 
agree to 
pay £1. 3m 

The architects and, engi- 
neers who designed 
Liverpool’s Roman Chtholic 
Cathedral, agreed yesterday 
to pay the church £l-3million 
in settlement of the High 
Court negligence claim 
against them. 

The Cathedral of Christ the 
King, finished in 1968 at a 
cost of fAmillion, has faults 
in its roof, windows and ribs 
which caused severe water 
leaks. 

The Archdiocesan Trusters 
sued the architects Frederick 
Gibberd and Partners, the 
consulting engineers Lowe 
and Rodin, and the estate of 
the late Sir Frederick 
Gibberd for design and con- 
struction defects. 

Liability had been denied 
by the architects and engi- 
neers, who blamed each other 
for the defects. 

The case began on January 
20 before the Official Refer- 
ee, Mr James Fox-Andrews, 
QC who was told yesterday 
of the settlement, after talks 
between lawyers during the 
past few days. If the case had 
run its course of an estimated 
20 weeks, costs could have 
reached nearly £1 million. 

The £l.3niuliou indudes 
£300,000 for the trustees’ 
legal costs. It is expected to 
be invested to finance 
remedioal work, estimated at 
up to £3 mi lb on. 

In an agreed press state- 
ment after the settlement, the 
trustees said: “We have 
always acknowledged the bril- 
liance of the conception 
which created an internation- 
ally renowned building. All 
the parties hope that the 
payment made will give a 
good start to a fund for works 
to the cathedral 
The trustees' counsel, Mr 
David Gardam, QC had told 
the court that the aluminium- 
covered main root which 
should have had a life of 160 
years, had split, “leaked like 
a colander” and had had to 
be patched. 

Mosaics on the ribs of the 
roof were bursting off and 
flashing joints between the 
ribs ana al uminium roof 
were inadequate. 

Mr Patrick Phillips, QC 
for the architects, described 
Sir Frederick as one of the 
great architects of the post- 
war period. He and the 
■engineers bad been required 
to erect a great building on a 
shoestring: the original bud- 
get was flmiUioti.

Petrol tax warning 


BydiffordWebb , 

Motoring Correspondent 

Motorists looking forward 
to petrol price cuts of up to 
16p a gallon , because of 
felbim oft prices will be 
justifiably angry if (he Chan- 
cellor of the Exchequer in- 
creases petrol tax in the next 
Budget, the . Royal Automo- 
bile Cub said yesterday. 

Mr Arthur Large, chief 
executive of RAC motoring 
services, said: “Such a move 


would be unjust exploitation 
of motorists. They have been 
squeezed hard by excessive 
taxation for so many yean 
and are now expecting sub- 
stantial cuts in prices due to 
emerging competition be- 
tween members of the Opee 
cartel and the oil 
companies."

leaflets urging motorists to 
enlist the help of their MPs 
in putting pressure on the

Legal Affairs Correspondent 

The Government's delay in 
abashing proposals for 
imily court were criticized 
yesterday by the new Family 
Courts Campaign which said 
that more confusion and 
Stress would result for thou- 
sands of families and chil- 
dren going through the 
present court system. 

A consultation paper from 
an interdepartmental com- 
mittee of officials from the 
Lord Chancellor’s Depa 
raent and the Home Office is 
not expected until the end of 
March, although it was prom- 
ised for the end of last year. 

. Yesterday, Mr Tony du 
Sautoy, coordinator of the 
Family Courts Campaign, 
which has the backing of 
more than lOO organiza- 
tions, MPs, peers and aca- 
demics, said he was greatly 
concerned about the delay. 

“Thousands of families 
and their children are in- 
volved in divorce and other 
family disputes in the courts 
every year. Every additional 
delay puis off the time when 
they can be assured that such 
disputes will be heard in a 
simple, humane and civilized 
court system which will 
reduce the inevitable stress 
that such proceedings cause. 

The delay was also criti- 
cized by MPs last week 
during the second reading 
debate of a private member’s 
BiQ aimed at tightening 
procedures for returning chil- 
dren in care to their homes in 
the wake of recent cases

QUESTIONS 

-■Mrs Margaret Thatcher 
turned on the Opposition in 
Commons for suggesting it 
was lime she stood down as 
Prime Minister. She had seen 
off two Labour Governments 
and three Labour leaders, she 
■asserted, and she would see off 
more. 

■ She was greeted by a waving 
of order papers by Labour MPs 
as she entered the Chamber on 
the anniversary of her eleven 
years as Leader of the Conser- 
vative Party. She bowed, smit- 
ing at the Opposition, over the 
despatch box as she rose to 
answer her usual question time 
session. But when Mr Merlin 
.Rees, the former Home Sec- 
retary. and Mr Neil Khmock, 
Leader of the Labour Party, 
urged her to go she went onto 
the attack. 



Thatcher: I have seen off 
three Labour leaders 

Mr Rees (Leeds South and 
Marley. Lab): In view of the 
prolonged uncertainty caused 
try the hat-in-the-ring weekend 
speeches at Blackpool is Mrs 


Thatcher not going to lead her 
Government into the next 
■general election? 

Mrs Thatcher: May I remind 
Mr Rees that 1 have seen off 
two Labour Governments and 
I hope to see off a third. 
(Conservative cheers.) 

Mr Gerald Howarth 
(Cannock and Bumtwood, Cf. 
In my constituency, unemploy- ■ 
meat fell by eight per cent 
between September 1984 and 
the end of last year and a good 
number of companies are 
reporting increased exports, 
vastly increased productivity 
and increased prosperity, a 
large measure of which is due 

to the improved business 
climate encouraged by this 
Government under her firm 
leadership. 

Mrs Thatcher: I thank him 

for that cogent summary of the 
excellent news of where un- 
employment is falling and there 
is job creation. Britain's rale of 
job creation is the highest in 
Europe but it is still not fast 
enough to see the fall in the 
rate of unemployment every- 
where we wish. 

Mr Kitmock: When the 
number of people unemployed 
for more than one year is now 
larger than the total un- 
employed in 1979, is it not 
dear that a Prime Minister 
who thinks she is too old to 
stay and too old to go should 
relieve the whole country and 
get out? 

Mrs Thatcher: I would 
remind Mr Kinnock that I 
have not only seen off two 
Labour Governments but three 
Labour leaders and I hope to 
see off the third. (Prolonged 
Conservative cheers.) 

Mr Kitmock: That does not 
convince anybody and dearly 
convinces very few over there 


Defence posture 
stays unchanged 


I TRIDENT 

( 'Government was not con- 
f ducting any review of the 
a Imain components of its 
s defence policy, Mr George 
f [Younger, Secretary of State 
s ifor Defence said during 
i [questions in the Commons. 
5 : I am looking at ways (he 
s [added) in which the cash 
c available can be worked into 
this. Some difficult decisions 
t will have to be taken, but 
« there will be no need for any 
change in our main defence 
(posture. 

\ He told Mr James Wallace 
•(Orkney and Shetland^.) that 
to abandon Trident would be 
a grave mistake. 

) Dr Keith Hampson (Leeds 
iNorth WeslC) : Would he 
{confirm that there is a firm 
commitment to Trident ? 
Would he comment on recent 
{press speculation that there is 
to be a review or a delay to 
the programme ? 

• Mr Younger : Certainly 
[there is a firm commitment 
to Trident; the programme is 


on course and there is no 
change in the Government's 
position. 

Mr DenzO Davies, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
defence and disarmament: 
We welcome the statement 
that the secretary of state is 
not having a fundamental 
review. But he is having a 
cash review and when that is 
complete, I would expect that 
the defence budget will be 
seen to be out of control by 
about £1 billion. 

Is it not a fact that it is not 
possible to finance Trident 
and all the existing conven- 
tional commitments at the 
same time? Something has to 
give. 

Mr Younger This is the 
normal annual process of a 
review of the long-term 
costings of the defence pro- 
gramme. Of course we cannot 
undertake to buy everything 
everyone wants in every 
department, but there is no 
need for a fundamental 
review. However, I shall not 
be leaving anything to 
chance. 


DEFENCE 


It is far from dear whether the 
GEC equipment being devel- 
oped for the Nimrod air early 
warning system could be put 
into a different British plane to 
help overcome delay in the 
Nimrod . project, Mr. George 
Younger, Secretary of State & 
Defence, said during questions 
in the Commons. He said h all 
held together as one system. 

Mr. Younger was replying to 
Mr. Kevin McNamara, an 
Opposition spokesman on de- 
fence, but be would not be 
drawn on whether the Cabinet 
would be considering on 
Thursday a proposition to lease 
six AW ACS planes while decid- 
ing about the future of Nimrod. 

Earlier, he had told Dr. John 
Marek (WrexhamJLab) and 
Mr. Stephen Ross (Isle of 
WighuL) that about £646M 
had been spent or committed 
by the end of last November 
on the Nimrod project This 
equated to £88 2 M at 1985-86 
average prices. 

The Government was cur- 
rently in negotiations with 
GEC Avionics Ltd and hoped 
shortly to be in a position to 
announce its decision on the 
best way forward. 

He agreed with Dr. Marek 
that it was desirable to have 
the technology and the jobs 
involved to the fore in Britain. 
Bui as Secretary for Defence be 
also had to see the countrygot 
good value for money. That 
was why the negotiations were 
going on. 

He told Mr. Ross that the 
talks would deal with the cost 
of finishing the project to 
agreed RAF standards and 
satisfaction and the time that 
would take 

Mr. Peter Thanduun (Bolton 
North EasiC) said it would be 
false economy to abandon the 
project, considering the eleven 
planes were, to all intents and 
purposes, ready and it would 
cost at least £600M-£800M to 
buy an American alternative 
and take three years for 
delivery. 

Mr. Yotmger said that was a 
good sign of a difficult situa- 
tion. His objective would be to 
do the best to see the Royal Air 
Force got what it wanted, on 
time and at reasonable cost. 

Mr. Robert Brown 
(Newcastle/Tyne North, Lab) 
said the decision to keep 
technology, workforce and Brit- 
ish firm together was a good 
one when taken 10 yeats ago. 
But the aircraft was urgently 
needed then. 

Now (he said) 10 years on we 
are still urgently waiting for 
this urgent requirement. When 
will it be resolved ? 

Mr. Younger agreed h was 
important for the nation's 
defence. It was also important 
to gel the equipment to. do tbe 
job required. 

Mr. John Wilkinson (Ruis- 
lip-Northwood.Q said (be 
Mark Three Nimrod saga had 
been the worst procurement 
scandal since World War Two. 

Would Mr. Younger have 
the courage not to put good 
money after bad and buy the 
E3A Sentry which worked and 
had commonality with air 
defence systems in Western 
Europe. 

Mr. Younger said he did not 
want to comment while the 
GEC talks were still in train. 


EMPLOYMENT 

The reforms proposed by the 
Government would help young 
workers to get that vital fust 
foothold on the employment 
ladder, Mr Kmwth Clarke, 
Paymaster General said when 
be moved the second reading 
of the Wages Bill in the 
Commons. Young people were 
being taken out of the scope of 
wages councils. The minima set 
by these councils had some- 
times damaged the job pros- 
pects of young workers. 

The Bill would change the 
rales on wage payments. It 
would not only promote 
employment and industrial ef- 
ficiency bat would give workers 
rights to ensure that they got 
life wages due to them. The 

measure would also help to 
break down barriers of status 
between different kinds of 

employees. 

The country needed an 
efficient and productive private 
sector, unhampered by un- 
necessary government regula- 
tions- Also needed was an 
efficient labour market- with a 
minimum of constraints on the 
rights of employers and 
employees, eager to offer and 
accept jobs on contractual 
terms suitable to both. 

This Bill (he said) deals with 
a legacy of enactments span- 
ning ISO years which have all 
served their purpose but now 
need urgent change. 

The BiD swept away a host of 
ancient and obsolete laws 
based on the Truck Acts which 
covered the way wages were 


paid. The right of manual 
workers to insist on being paid 
in c?^h acted as an impediment 
to the spread of cashless pay 
which was preferable. It cost on 
average about 50p per wage 
payment to pay in cash and 
there was also the security 
aspect. 

The Bill did not take away 
any existing contractual right to 
payment in cash. It did not 
force any ^employer to change 
to a non-cash system if be did 
not want ia 

Most controversial in the Bill 
was the part dealing with wages 
councils. There the 
Government's main reforms 
were aimed at simplifying the 
requirements that wages coun- 
cils imposed on industry. 

We will (be continued) en- 
able wages councils to set a 
basic level of remuneration and 
a limit on deductions for 
accommodation. We will not 
allow them to involve them- 
selves it) every last detail of the 
employment relationship as 
they do now. 

It might be asked why wages 
councils should be retained at 
all _ The Government was 
making it easier to review and 
if need be change tbe scope of 
or abolish tbe existing councils. 

We have retained them (he 
continued) because our 
consultation process showed 
that many employers and trade 
unions still feel the need for 
them. But the number of wages 
councils in this country has 
been falling steadily for many 
years. 

There were 66 in 1953. That 
figure had now fallen to the 


present 26. The last Labour 
Government had abolished at 
least eight between 1974 and 
1979. 

1 hope (be said) that other 
industries will continue to be 
weaned away from the process 
of statutory pay fixing. 1 do not 

see a great reason for statutory 
minimum wage fixing or wage 
fixing at all in today's society. 
Mr. John Prescott, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on employ- 
ment, said the - BiD would 
increase further part-time and 
low paid employment It would 



Clarke: Getting first 
foothold, on Udder 
reduce the wages of those who 
were tbe lowest paid in the 
community. Ironically tbe Bill 
would increase the costs of 
small employers. 

The BUI was the greatest 
attack ever on the lowest paid 
and poorly organized, particu- 
larly women and young people. 
It was produced in the belief 


that it would lead to More jobs 
but nothing tbe minister had 
said justified that controversial 
assertion, put forward as jus- 
tification for the legislation. 

The Bill denounced inters 
national agreements on fair 
employment practices which all 
previous governments had ob- 
served. Britain was tbe only 
country out of 92 which had 
decided to denounce inter- 
national standards for 
maintaining decent standards 
for those in industry who were 
lowly paid and poorly or- 
ganized.' 

The Government had a 
history of breaching fair 

employment practices and hu- 
man rights. It continued to 
reduce the range of employee 
rights, maternity rights and 
tribunal rights. 

If there was a fundamental 
difference b e tween Labour and 
Government it was that the 
Opposition did not believe that 
market forces would determine 
a fair wage. Wages would go 
down and the Bill was designed 
to achieve that. 

* Why was tbe Government 
intending to be so selective in 
its targets, and vindictive 
where groups were chosen to 
suffer this particular burden ? 

What this Bill was about was 
dragooning YTS into slave 
labour-type jobs. Tbe greatest 
claim for his legislation was 
that it would create new jobs 
because less pay meant more 
.jobs, but where was the 
evidence and why did the 
minister not say how many 
jobs were likely to be created ? 


One vote setback for Government 


SHOPS BILL 


The Government was defeated 
by one vote during the report 
stage in the House of Lords of 
the Shops Bill when an 
amendment moved by Lord 
Denning, former Master of the 
Rolls, to continue the protec- 
tion of the Shops Act 1950 to 
retail workers aged over 18, 
was carried by 121 votes to 
120, majority against the Gov- 
ernment - one. Lord Stockton, 
the former Prime Minister, 
voted against the GovcmmenL 
Lord Denning said the 
Government's proposal to end 
this protection, covering half- 
holidays. mealtimes, and Sun- 


day employment, after tbe age 
of 18. would leave one of the 
most vulnerable sections of 
society unprotected. 

Shop workers were for the 
most pan unorganized and 
having no protection from 
trade unions they needed the 
protection of the law. 

The Government had at- 
tempted to cater for this by an 
amendment to delay im- 

g ementation of the provision 
r two years, but that would 
prove unworkable. Inspectors 
would have to go to every shop 
asking who was over and who 
under 18 and whether they had 
received their entitlements. 

Such a law would prove 
absolutely unenforceable, there- 
fore it would be sensible to 


Bill to protect right 
of free speech 


UNIVERSITIES 

Mr. Frederick Silvester 
( Manchester. Wiihingjon.C) was 
given leave to bring in a Bill to 
safeguard the right of free 
speech in universities and 
institutions of higher educa- 
tion. 

He said the tradition of free 
speech had been challenged 
widely by some student unions 
who had adopted a practice 
known as the “no platform 
policy." This meant that any- 
body holding differing views 
were refused an opportunity to 
express them at universities, 
and all sons of methods were 
used to enforce the policy. 

There had been violence, 
blockades, use of megaphones, 
and objects had bean thrown in 
a disgraceful manner. All this 


had eaten into the traditions of 
. universities. 

If . there should be any need 
to limit (he law of free speech it 
should be done in the Com- 
mons and not by a gang of 
Fascists. - masquerading as 
university students. 

The former Secretary of State 
for Defence. Mr Michael 
Heseliine. had been daubed 
with red paint and the South 
African ambassador bad been 
prevented from speaking at 
Nottingham. 

The most disgraceful case 
was at a polytechnic where 
people had been banned on the 
pretext that all Zionists were 
racists. 

In some cases there had been 
only milk and water reactions 
at universities, but his Bill 
would put a duty on university 
authorities to maintain the 
right of free speech. 


continue the present provisions 
beyond tbe age of 18. It was 
suggested that coverage after 
the age of 21 could be provided 
by the Wages Bill, currently 
before the House of Commons, 
but legislation could not be 
passed on what might be in 
another Bill 

Also, be said, no legislation 
was promised after two years if 
it should be derided to end tbe 
protection. There had to be a 
satisfactory alternative. 

Lord Gtcaartfaur, Under Sec- 
retary of State, Home Office, 
said the provisions of tbe 1950 
Act were outdated, ineffective 
and unnecessary. There was no 
logical reason why meal breaks,, 
half days and Sunday working 
arrangements should be de- 


Councillors 
warned on 
police role 

Council leaders who under- 
mined the role of the police did 
great harm to the prospects cf 
tbe inner cities. Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister, 
said during questions in the 
Commons. 

She was replying to Mr 
David Ainess (Basildon. O 
who asked her to visit some of 
the inner city areas to see for 
herself the problems and what 
was being done to tackle them. 

Would she make the point, 
he added, of not hobnobbing 
with those council leaders who 
back violence and rioters 
against the police? 

Mrs Thatcher replied that 
she had given some time that, 
morning to examining the 
excellent work done in tbe 
inner cities under the. urban 
renewal and derelict land 
programmes. 


cided by Partiamenl. 

That was not considered 
necessary for other groups of 
workers and was something 
best left to individual or 
collective bargaining. 

Individuals working in the 
retail trade were best placed to 
decide their own conditions 
and they should not be denied 
the flexibility allowed other 
workers in this respect. 

By phasing tbe effect of the 
Bill over a two year period, 
shop workers would have a 
greater opportunity to judge its 
effects. It would provide ample 
time for the changes to work 
The Government accepted 
that shop workers might feel 
too much was happening at 
once. 


HOUSE OF LORDS 


A facelift costing £4 million 
for the Victoria Tower is being 
considered in the next stage of 
the restoration programme of 
the Palace of Westminster, 
which is expected to be 
completed by the early 1990s, 
Lord Skelmersdale. the Gov- 
ernment spokesman, said dur- 
ing question time in the House 
of Lords. 

Asked about progress of the 

work he told peers: As far as 

(he outside of the Palace is 

concerned, the stonework 
restoration programme will be 
more than half complete once 
the river frontage is finished 
this autumn. 

The Secretary of State for the 
Environment (Mr Kenneth 
Baker) will shortly be consid- 
ering what work should be 
tackled in the next stage of a 
continuing programme which it 
is- hoped will be completed in 
the early 1990s. 

Within the Palace, the ceiling 
over the peers' lobby has been 
made structurally secure and 
work on the Throne is continu- 
ing apace. 

Lonl Sandys (Q: Comple- 
tion of work on the clockiower 
has been a most spectacular 
stage in the work on the Palace 
which has continued virtually 
uninterrupted since the end of 
the war and is a notable 
achievement for all concerned. 

Lord Skelmersdale: The 
Property Services Agency 
which has suffered a number of 
brickbats in tbe past will be 
delighted by his- comments. 
The work on the docktower is 
a magnificent achievement. 

Lady Birk (Lab): So far as 
tbe Victoria Tower is con- 
cerned. the longer the work is 
delayed the more it is going to 
Cost- 

Lord Skelmersdale: The Sec- 
retary of Slate for the Environ- 
ment will shortly be 
considering work for the next 
stage- He is aware of the need 
to get on with work on Victoria 
Tower which is the last 
remaining external work to be 
done. 

He has to take into account 
the fact that the cost of the 
work is estimated at four 
million pounds. 


Helicopter plan likely 
to go ahead-Minister 


Mr Norman Lamont Minister 
of State for Defence Procure- 
ment said he understood that 
the Westland EH 101 helicopter 
programme was likely to go 


tbe EH 10 1 had numerous 
advanced design features which 
would give it unrivalled 
capability in the anti-sub- 
marine warfare role in the 


ahead whatever the outcome of Royal Navy and the Italian 
the dispute about the future of navy. 


the Westland helicopter com- 

TS was speaking during 
defence question time in the 
Commons. 

Mr Norman Atkinson 
(Tottenham. Lab) had said that 
a former junior minister had 
said tbe EH 101 programme 
would be an integral part of the 
future defence strategy of 
Britain. 

As Sikorsky have now said it 
did not support the EH 101. the 
minister should reaffirm that 
the British intention was to 
support Westlands to go into 
Europe 

Mr Lamont said earlier that 


We expected (he said) to sell 
well in both military and civil 
markets worldwide. 

Mr Deuzil Davies, chief 
Opposition spokesman on de- 
fence and disarmament, sought 
confirmation that it was still 
the view of the defence 
ministry and of the Army that 
they had no desire for or need 
for and no money for the Black 
Hawk helicopter made by 
Sikorsky. 

Mr Lamont told bim that Mr 
Michael Heseliine, the former 
Secretary of Stale for Defence. 1 
had already stated the situation 
on that, and it had not 
changed. 


Commitment to act on Roskffl .Competition i Minister to chair Kent committee 


I FRAUD TRIALS 

E; The Government's com- 
“-mitment to act on the Roskill 
;report on fraud trials was not 
iin question. Lord Glenarthur, 
•Under Secretary of State for 
|Home Affairs, said in the 
■House of Lords on Monday 
[night at the conclusion of the 
J ; debate on the report. He said 
J’ilhe Government would im- 
-iplemeM in early legislation 
■all the relevant recommenda- 
tions which contributed to its 
^-objectives of first justice and 
second efficiency, 
i The Government was im- 
mensely interested in the 
: proposal that a judge and two 


assessors expen in business 
matters should replace juries 
for the most complicated 
fraud trials, but it had not 
reached a conclusion on the 
recommendation. 

It was fairly persuasive that 
those expen in business 
would be better able to 
understand business jargon 
and dealings than others, but 
a better comprehension by 
assessors could not be a 
deciding factor. 

The question was how best 
the interests of justice would 
be served and it was right 
that the Government should 
reserve its position to take 
full account of what has been 
said in the debate. 


Earlier Lord Templeman 
(Lnd) said that through the 
debate there had run one 
theme on which there had 
been remarkable agreement - 
the need for selecting persons 
with training, experience and 
ability. It was logical that the 
final recommendation of the 
report on this topic was that 
the tribunal deciding these 
matters should also be com- 
posed of persons with train- 
ing. ability and expertise. 

On his reading of the 
report it was not the innocent 
who bad cause to fear the 
carrying out of these recom- 
mendations; it was only the 
guilty. 


in air services 

The Government had agreed 
more competitive arrange- 
ments for air services with five 
European countries in the past 
eighteen months, the Earl of 
1 Caithness. Under Secretary of 
i State for Transport, said during . 
| question time in the House of 
1 Lords. 

Discussions are under way 
(he said) with the Finns. 
Scandinavians, Italians and 
Spanish and should shortly 
stan with the Irish Republic 

At Community level there is 
now an urgent need for 
concrete progress and at the 
recent informal ministers' 
meeting in The Hague it 
became clear that there is now 
a growing consensus in favour 
of real reform. 


CHANNEL LINK 


Mr David Mitchell Minister of 
State for Transport, said at tbe 
end of the Commons debate on 
Monday night on the White 
Paper on the Channel fixed 
link that he is to chair a 
committee in Kent consisting 
of local authorities, the Depart- 
ment of the Environment and 
the promoters of tbe tunnel. 
They would look at ways of 
carrying the project through 
with the minimum of damage 
to the environment. 

An Opposition amendment 
declining to approve the White 
Paper was rejected by 263 
votes, to 173 - Government 
majority, 90. a Government 


. motion inviting the Commons 
to approve tbe White Paper 
was carried by 268 votes to 107 
- Government majority, 161. 

Sir John Osborn (Sheffield 
Hatlam. Q said in tbe dosing 
stages of the debate that he 
welcomed the White Paper and 
particularly the ^choice the 
Government had made. As 
joint chairman of the all-party 
Channel Tunnel Group he had 
supported the concept of a 
fixed link and was convinced 
this was a good decision for 
Britain. It was or could be good 
for industry, the Midlands and 
the North. 

Dr John Marek (Wrexham, 
Lab) said tbe Government 
must ensure that a g ree m ents 
were reached as speedily as 
possible to permit on-train 


customs and immigration facil- 
ities. The north of England. 
Scotland and Wales could 
benefit enormously from this 
project with government help. 

Mr Deter Saape, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman on transport 
said the Government had 
failed to show bow the so- 
called economic benefits could 
be fairly spread throughout the 
country. What guarantee was 
there that the scheme would 
benefit industry and British 
Rail nationwide? 

Mr Mitchell said it was 
desirable that customs and 
excise facilities should be 
carried out on the trains if 
possible. Tbe Government was 
discussing with customs what' 
was needed to satisfy their 
requirements. 

For tbe next six years there 


would be more jobs on the 
femes because trade was -grow- 
ing, more jobs in the Kent area 
because of the construction of 
the tunnel and other parts of 
tbe country would have orders 
for engineering and British Rail 
work. All of that was a net 
benefiL 

When lhe tunnel opened 
there would be a short-term 
loss of about LdOO jobs in 
Dover, but after that there 
would be a resumption of 
growth in jobs in traffic on the 
ferries which would mean that 
10 years later there would be 
about 2.000 more jobs than 
there were now and opportu- 
nities for other parts of the 
country to compete more 
successfully in export markets 
on lhe continent. 


Review starts on 
Bill for disabled 

By Nicholas Timmins, Social Services Correspondent 


The Government gave lim- 
ited support yesterday to a 
private member's Bill placing 
tougher obligations on local 
authorities to help disabled 
people. 

They would include identi- 
fying their needs and giving 
them a right to representation 
when their needs are as- 
sessed. 

But Mr Barney Hayhoe, 
Minister for Health, said that 
while the Government 
“wholeheartedly endorsed" 
most of the genera! principles 
in the Bill, he was sceptical 
about many of its detailed 
provisions. 

To sound out backing for 
the measures, ministers pro- 
duced a consultative docu- 
ment yesterday. 

Mr Hayhoe said the spon- 
sors of the private member’s 
Bill from Mr Tom Clarke, 
Labour MP for Monklands 
West, were content for the 
Government's consultation 
exercise to proceed. 

The document says a 
statutory right to be repre- 
sented in dealings with the 


health services would be 
impracticable, drawing dis- 
tinctions between disabled 
people and other patients. 

Proposals that social ser- 
vices departments should be 
responsible for assessing tbe 
needs of all mentally ill long- 
stay patients before they are 
discharged from hospital 
with a minimum of 28 days'

extra administration, the doc- 
ument argues. 

It proposes that hospitals 
should have to inform social 
services departments of all 
cases where a patient has 
received six months* continu- 
ous in-patient treatment 

The imposition on local 
authorities of a statutory 
obligation to assess the needs 
of people who care for the 
disabled would uot be right 
given the pressure such 
services are already under, 
the Government argues. 

But local authorities should 
take into account the carer's 
continuing ability to cope in 
assessing the disabled 
person's needs.

hear jail appeals 

By Peter Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 


A sentencing appeal tribu- 
nal should bear aU appeals 
against prison terms of less 
than five years and some 
fines and compensation or- 
ders. according to Mr Alex 
Caiiile QC. Liberal spokes- 
man on home affairs. 

He told a Prison Reform 
Trust meeting last night that 
a sentencing appeal tribunal, 
consisting of two circuit 
judges and a magistrate, 
should be established m each 
circuit 

“They should hear a (meals 
against all sentences of less 
than five years' imprison- 
ment and against all foies 
and compensation orders at 
present rates of less than 


£10.000 upon individuals, or 
£50,000 upon corporate 
bodies”, he said. 

Mr Cariile said cases in 
which there was an appeal 
against conviction or heavy 
sentencing would continue to 
be referred to the Court of 
Appeal. 

There should also be a 
review of maximum sen- 
tences to give judges the 
power to impose determinate 
sentences for murder. 

Mr Cariile called for the 
abolition of parole for all 
prisoners serving less than 
five years, to be replaced by 
automatic remission of two 
thirds of the sentence.

Scotland Yard has con-

“one of the possibilities" it 
was considering to deal with 
riots. 

The Hotspur Land Rover, 
which has bullet-proof steel 
armour and grilles over the 


windows, could be intro- 
duced as pan of the Metro-

The Soviet Jews in Israel 

Newcomers find 
it hard to adjust 

From Ian Murray, Jerusalem

At Israel Aircraft Industry, 
where the next generation of 
top-secret aircraft is being 
developed, and in Ike mathe- 
matics and physics depart- 
ments of Td Aviv University 
the main language in use by 
the senior staff is Russian. In 
the national orchestras it 
rivals Hebrew as the tinge* 
franca. . 

Every second engineer in 
Israel today was tndned in 
the Soviet Union. Every third 
physician and seven out of 
ten music teachers are Soviet 
immigrants. 

According to Mr Lear 
Slovin, of the Jewish 
Agency's Russian Desk: 
“They have initiative and 
they are effective because of 
the attitudes they brought 
with them". He claims that 
they hold many of the key 
positions in the national 
economy. 

Half of the 163£92 Soviet 
Jews living in Israel are 
Russian graduates, and over- 
all they tend to be one of the 
best educated of the country’s 
many national groups. They 
are also among the most 
critical and sometimes most 
disillusioned citizens of the 
modern Jewish state. 

According to Mr Ynri 
Shtero, granted a Sonet exit 
visa in 1981 and now running 
the Soviet Jewry Education 
and Information Centre, this 
is often because Israel fails to 
be Jewish enough for them. 

He explains: “A Jew sits in 
Russia, year after year, 
abused because be is a Jew 
and has asked to live in 
IsraeL To pass the time and 
prepare for the new life he 
begins to study Hebrew. At 
the same tune he's been 
dismissed from his job for 
daring to request an exit visa 


and no one but other 
- refuseniks will associate with 
. him. So while he is turning to 
Judaism, he is increasingly 
isolated from. Soviet culture.*’ 

But when be eventually 
arrives in IsraeL Mr Shtern 
says, he often becomes disil- 
lusioned. “Some Soviet Jews 
wbo have fought for years to 
emigrate turn anti-Zionist 
within their first year in the 
country." . . / . 

He ManKS this en the lact 
that they lean from the 
Ultra-Orthodox that Zionism 
Is wrong. Coupled with die 
inevitable teething problems 
tf fife in a new country, the 
pressures on the new Soviet 
immigrant tuna him against 
the comitry be struggled so 
hard to reach. 

These are problems that 
Mr ShimoD.Peres, the Prime 
Minister, is seeking to face. 
He has just asked Rabbi 
EHahu Essas, who arrived 
with -his family from Moscow 
only three weeks ago, to draw 
up detailed {plans for the 
absorption of newcomers from 
Russia and for hamHirig the 
entire Soviet Jewry issue. 

Post-war immigration by 
Soviet Jews began on a large 
scale in 1969, when every one 
of those grairted a. visa came 
to live in IsraeL- -Ten years 
later there were over 50,000 
visas granted; but more than 

34.000 “dropped out" and did 
not go on to IsraeL 

Since then the number of 
visas has dwindled annnally, 
and the proportion “dropping 
out" has grown steadily. Last 
month only 19 of. the 79 
granted visas -arrived , in 
IsraeL ■ 

There are said to be about 

400.000 refuseniks Tn the 
Soviet Union, out of a Jewish 
community estimated at 2-5 
million.

would find different about 
her if he was able to join her

predicted. “Age," she replied 
with a laugh. “We are in

we are changed, but not

Buthelezi 

scorns 

Botha’s 

proposal 

From Michari Hornsby 
Jo hannes b ur g 

Chief Buthdm, leader of 
South Africa's Zulus, yester- 
day ruled out any chance of 
his taking part in the “nation- 
al statutory council" pro- 
posed by P re si d ent Botha for 
negotiations with Mack lead- 
ers, unless die Government 
meets a number of tough 
conditions. 

This seems to have shqt 
down the President's initia- 
tive, since few of the condi- 
tions are likely to be satisfied. 
Chief Buthelezi had initially 
responded quite warmly to 
the proposal His participa- 
tion in the council is essential 
to give it any credibility. . 

Chief Buthelezi said all 
black South Africans were 
aghast at Mr Botha's public 
rebuke of his Foreign Minis- 
ter last Friday for suggesting 
that ihe country might one 
day have a black president. 

Among the conditions the 
Chief laid down are: an. 
unequivocal statement from 
Mr Botha that the Acts that 
classify people into categories 
at birth and enforce segregat- 
ed residential areas, schools 
and hospitals, will be abol- 
ished; dismantling of the 
existing constitution, includ- 
ing the tricam era! Parlia- 
ment; and the release of Mr 
Nelson Mandela and other 
jailed leaders.

Today, even with 3 million unemployed, the best staff 

still expea more from ^pF their employers than a salary- and sick pay. 

Today s employers are expected to provide private medical cover 
along with company cars and subsidised lunches. It’s as though the 
concept of the caring society is moving more and more towards the Board 
Room. And that’s probably not a bad thing. 

But it’s one thing to deride upon medical cover for your staff and 
another to know where to look for it 

If you sign on the dotted line for the first company you think of, 
you may be getting poor value for money and, thus, be selling your 
employees short. And it won’t take long for them to compare notes with 
their friends in other companies and draw' their own conclusions. 


That’s why you should look into Health Firs 

Health First is part of an international fjggpT organisation v 
provides private medical cover for more people than any other 
pany in the world. 

Health First doesn't replace the NHS, it works alongside it c 
away all the waiting and worrying. It makes sure that your people gt 
best possible treatment at the earliest opportunity - so that they get t 
quickly and in comfort 

But the big phis is that with Health First you won’t overspends i 
are so many different kinds of cover that you can tailor exacdy what 
want to spend to your company’s needs.

Philippines: The chaos goes on 


Reagan comments shock Aquino camp 


Mr Paid Nitze, President 
Reagan's special adviser oa 
anns control, seems to have 
done a good job in reassuring 
British ministers in lon^w 
last week. That phrase sad- 
ly means that the United 
States has been persuaded to 

go Car enough on disarma- 
ment to satisfy British and 
other European opinion. Oa 
this occasion it was rather 
different. 

Western Europe has 
interests in arms 
with the Soviet Union. One is 
to achieve a iwiwy of 
strength at a lower level of 
weaponry and thereby to 
reduce tension in Europe. The 
other is to avoid the defence 
of Europe being Jeopardized 
in a deal between the super- 
powers. 

As the peace movement 
gathered strength across 
Western Europe over the past 
few years, all the talk was of 
the first purpose. To be seen 
to be making progress to- 
wards disarmament became a 
political priority for 
European governments. 

Bat the second purpose is 
even more vital to European 
security,- artless it is supposed 
that we are about to live in a 
weaponless Utopia. There is 
often a conflict, therefore, 
between Western 
political and security priori- 
ties, and so it is now. 

The British and American 
governments are agreed in 
their analysis of Mr 
Gorbachov's grandiose ideas 
for the etinrinalion of unclear 
weapons by the end of the 
century. The substance lies in 
his interim proposals 
intermediate range npriya r 
forces (INF). 

He is suggesting (hat sach 
missiles should be 
altogether from Europe pro- 
vided Oat- the British aad 
French de t errent s were kept 
at their present level and the 
United Stotts undertook not 
to transfer any missiles to its 
allies. ' 

This would mean that 
Britain, and : Ihw^coBld

So the respowse that the

different con dition s. There 
would be no . restrictions on 
the British and French deter- 
rents but the number of 
Soviet SS20s in Asia would 
have to be halved. 

The point on which the 
British Government fans par- 
ticularly sought reassurance 
is (bat our deterrent really 
would not be affected fry these 
proposals. A plausible agree- 
ment that ruled out the 
introduction of Trident would 
be contrary to British inter’ 
ests unless there were at the 
same time massive all-round 
reductions hi the armament of 
the superpowers. Even the 
American proposals as they 
stand are open to two 
objections on a rigorous 
■interpretation of West Euro- 
pean seemity interests. For 
the nnmber of SS20s in Asia

US hopes for INF 
agreement with 
Russians this year 

From Michael Binyon, Washington 


President Reagan said yes- 
terday that he was optimistic 
that the superpowers would 
reach agreement this year on 
intermediate-range nuclear 
missiles in Europe, because 
Mr Gorbachov no longer 
insisted on the US first 
abandoning its Strategic Do- 
fence Initiative. 

In an interview with The 
Washington Post, Mr Reagan 
said that the new Soviet 
position, outlined at a Krem- 
lin meeting with Senator 
Edward Kennedy, was a 
hopeful sign, although there 
were “points that have to be 
worked out”. 

The President’s remarks 
came as his two senior arms 
control advisers, Mr Paul 
Nitze and Mr Edward 
Rowny, were calling on 
American allies in Europe 
and Asia to consult them on 
the US response to Mr 
Gorbachov's proposals for 
the total elimination of nucle- 
ar weapons. 

Mr Nitze saw die Dutch 
Prime Minister. Mr Ruud 
Lubbers, yesterday, and then 
went on for talks in Belgium. 
He has already bad consulta- 
tions in Bonn and London. 
Mr Rowny has been in the 
Far EasL 

Mr Reagan said it was 
possible that Mr Gorbachov 


had always intended to reach 
agreement on intermediate 
missiles without insisting on 
SDI being scrapped. In their 
joint statement in Geneva the 
two leaders had called for 
early progress in areas where 
there was common ground. 
One of these was the idea of 
an INF agreement. “So may- 
be he's just now confirming 
that be meant this all the 
time”. 

On his return from Mos- 
cow az the weekend, Mr 
Kennedy said that Mr 
Gorbachov had linked the 
timing of the next summit 
with progress io such an 
agreement But Mr Reagan 
said yesterday that he could 
not believe the Soviet leader 
would want to scrap the 
summit which the US still 
warned to be held in June or 
July. 

The President said that the 
Soviet position on British 
and French nuclear forces 
and on Soviet intermedia le- 
range missiles in Asia re- 
mained obstacles. The 
Russians, however, appear 
now to be asking simply that 
British and French forces be 
frozen at their present 
levdswhile Soviet and Amer- 
ican missiles in Europe are 
reduced to zero.

Brazil moves firmly to 
the right as Samey 
chooses his own team 


THE TIMES WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 12 1Q8A 


• • .J ■/ ■ ' 


From Sue Branford 
Sdo Paulo 

After maintaining secrecy 

for several weeks, President 
Jose Samey of Brazil slowly 
divulged over Carnival week' 
end the names of his new 
Cabinet which is to be 
formally announced tomor- 
row. Reflecting the 
President's own conservative 
political background, the new 
appointees mark a dear shift 
to the right 

President Samey, who in- 
herited a ready-made Cabinet 
when he assumed the presi- 
dency last April after the 
death of President-elect 
Tancredo Neves, has lor the 
first time beat able to impose 
his own personal imprint. 
Making 12 changes in the 27- 
man team, he has on the 
whole chosen experienced, 
conservative politicians with 
whom he has worked before. 

No fewer than nine of the 
21 civilian members of the 
Cabinet belonged to the 
political party that backed 
the military during its 21 
years in power. 

The most significant i 
change is the appointment of i 
the former Education Minis- < 
ter, Senhor Marco Maciel, to e 
head the President's civilian e 
household. A skilful, conser- f 
vative politician, he will be in i 





Senhor Fnnaro: More 
entrenched than ever. 

charge of formulating the 
Government's political strat- 
egy. 

An Irrigation Ministry has 
also been created, an indica- 
tion of the President's con- 
cern to modernize the huge, 
impoverished north-east oi 
Brazil, where he was born 
and bred. 

The Liberal Front Party, 
the more conservative of the 
two partners in the ruling 
coalition, has been strength- 
ened, despite its scant elector- 
al following. It now controls 
five key ministries: Mines 
and Energy, Transport, Com- 


munications, Foreign Affairs 

and Education. 

The Brazilian Democratic 
Movement Party (PMDB), 
the other coalition partner, 
has been more seriously 
weakened than would appear 
at first sight- Although it 
retains its majority in the 
Cabinet, almost all the 
PMDB appointees belong to 
its small conservative fiction, 
which is dose to the Liberal 
Front. 

The PMDB's dominant 
left-of-centre fiction main- 
tains control only of the 
macroeconomic area, where 
the Finance Minister, Senhor 
Dilson Funaro, has emerged 
more firmly entrenched than 
ever. He was able, unexpect- 
edly, to persuade the Presi- 
dent to retain the left-wing 
economist, Senhor Jodo 
Sayad. as head of the 
Planning Ministry. 

President Sarney's success 
in distancing himself from 
the PMDB was passible only 
because of its disappointing 
performance in the municipal 
elections last November. 

He will now be attempting i 
to increase his Government's I 
prestige, not through radical 1 
action, as the electorate 1 
appeared to be demanding

Ethiopia 

By Nicholas Ashford 
Diplomatic Correspondent 
At least six million people 
in Ethiopia one million of 
them children, will need 
assistance from international 
relief organizations and other 
donor agencies this year 
because of continuing famine 
in parts of that country, 
according to Mr Alan Court, 
programme officer in Ethio- 
pia for Unicet the United 
Nations Children’s Fund- 
The number in need of 
help is two million lower 
foan the total who received 
emergency aid last year. 

Mr Court attributed tms 
improvement in part to foe 
success of the 1 985 relief 
effort, particularly those pro- 
grammes which enabled vil- 
lagers to return to their land 
and thereby end their depen- 
dency on food handouts-

higher if there had not been 
such a successful response, to

Disaster 
cancels 
Jupiter 
. missions 

Pasadena (UPI) - The 
destruction of the shuttle 
'Challenger has grounded in- 
definitely two long-planned 
showcase shuttle probes 
bound for Jupiter and the 
sun. 

Nasa project officials 
havealso cancelled the shuttle 
Columbia’s planned March 
mission, to carry a battery of 
telescopes into orbit, that was 
to facilitate a study of 
Halley's Comet 

Mr William Graham, act- 
ing administrator of Nara, 
said the 1ms of Challenger in 
a fiery explosion on January 
28 “eroded schedule margins 
for launch site processing”, 
and personnel required for 
planned missions were now 
preoccupied with foe investi- 
gation. 

The cancelled missions, the 
Ulysses sun study and foe 
Nasa Galileo probe, were 
both to be launched towards 
Jupiter in May. 

Galileo was built to orbit 
the giant planet and study its 
moons and atmosphere, 
while Ulysses was to utilize 
Jupiter's titanic gravity to 
whip it above the plane of 
the solar system and back 
towards the son. 

The orbital relationship 
between Earth and Jupiter 
meant both missions had to 
be launched by June 9. 
Missing the “launch window" 
means a 13-month delay. 


Ex-mayor killed 
by Red Brigades 


The Red Brigades, after a 
silence lasting almost a year, 
have claimed responsibility 
for the murder in Florence on 
Monday of the former may- 
or, Signor Lando Conti, who 
was shot dead when his car 
stopped at traffic lights. 

Copies of a political leaflet 
signed by foe left-wing terror- 
ist organization were found 
after the killers made off in 
two cars. 

The same leaflet, known as 
Red Brigade Resolution 
No.20. was found after their 
last killing, that of Signor 
Ezio Tarantdli, a trade union 
economist, in Rome in 
March last year. 

Signor Conti, aged 52, was 
mayor for 18 months until 
last September. A member of 
the Republican Party and 


From John Earle, Rome 


friend of foe party leader. 
Senator Giovanni Spadolini. 
Signor Conti was still a 
member of the city council 
and was driving to a council 
meeting when he was assassi- 
nated. 

In business life he was 
local agent for General Mo- 
tors and was on the board of 
an Italian company making 
electronic components for 
radar and defence systems. 

The use of a year-old 
political document suggested 
to investigators that the 
killing was foe work of a 
small residua] groupof foe 
Red Brigades, who have not 
yet succeeded iu reorganizing 
on a national scale. 

Most of foe known leaders 
of foe 1970s and foe early 
1980s are in jail. 


French troops missing 
after helicopter crash 


Ajaccio. Corsica (Reuter) — 
Rescuers plucked one survi- 
vor and one body from 
stormy seas off Corsica and 
continued a search yesterday 
for 12 men missing after a 
French Navy helicopter 
crashed into foe Mediterra- 
nean on Monday. Defence 
Ministry officials said. 

Four ships were searching 
for missing personnel who 
might be on a rescue raft 
from foe Super-Frelon heli- 
copter that plunged into the 


sea off foe island after 
developing engine trouble. 

Two men seen clinging to 
the tail were picked up a few 
hours later but one of them 
died, apparently of cold, in 
one of the iciest spells of 
weather in 30 years in foe 
area. 

The helicopter was carrying 
a navy commando group 
between France and Corsica 
when a turbine apparently 
cut out, forcing it to make an 
emergency sea landing.

SPECTRUM 



: At the centre of Berlin’s Glienicke Bridge 


yesterday morning Soviet dissident Anatoly 
Shchafansky stepped into a dark blue 
Mercedes and was driven to freedom. His 


release marks the end of a long campaign by 


his wife Avital which had at its root the slow 


rebirth of a national Jewish consciousness in 


Russia. Martin Gilbert traces the story of 


their meeting, their marriage and their long 
struggle for human rights and the homeland 


Anatoly Shcharansky was bora in 
tbe Soviet coal-mining city of 
Donetsk on 20 January 1948. He 
was a late child of Jewish 
parents, but grew op a thoroughly 
assimilated Soviet citizen. That 
is, until tiie Arab-lsraeli Six Day 
War of 1907. 


In 1960 there was still an 
Israeli Embassy in the Soviet 
capital, but there was little point 
in asking for an exit visa to go to 
Israel. The State of Israel was 
therefore a remote cariosity. 

Then, on 3 December, 1966, 
the Soviet Prime Minister, Alexei 
Kosygin, issued a formal declara- 
tion m Paris that Jews canid go 
to Israel to be reunited with 
-members of their family. This 
chang e in practice electrified 
Soviet Jewry. 


; In June 1967 tbe Six Day War 
broke out. Radio Moscow, jubi- 
lant at tiie initial Arab successes, 
announced tbe imminent destruc- 
tion of tiie 19-year-old state. This 
trumpeting of Israel's last boors 
.of existence released tbe hidden 
Jewishness and national pride of 
Russia’s silent Jews. With each 
Moscow radio broadcast of an- 
other Arab victory, of Tel Aviv in 
flames, of thousands of Israeli 
dead, fear for Israel's existence 
turned into a passionate longing 


to be a part of tbe straggle. 

And Israel's victory gave them 
a dear, indisputable reason to be 
proud of being Jewish. 

“This feeling was so strong", 
one of She hara risky's friends 
later told me, 'that it influenced 
the whole of Russia. Not that 
anti-Semitism disappeared, hot 
now it was combined with some 
kind of respect With pride in 
Israel came a deep desire to make 
a personal contribution: a desire 
which the Kosygin declaration of 
December 1966 seemed to bring 
within the bounds of reality. Bat 
'no sooner had tbe Six Day War 
ended than the granting of exit 
visas stopped. 

The awakening of Soviet Jew- 
ry, however, could not be re- 
versed. that easily. Hebrew 
classes burgeoned; private discas- 
sion groups exchanged informa- 
tion abend Israeli life. 

Shcharansky now, with so 
many tens of thonsands of Soviet 
Jews, embarked upon an exhila- 
rating, and for many an ultimate- 
ly satisfactory, voyage: the road 
to Jewish identity, and then to 
Israel. 

In April 1973, be applied for 
an exit visa for Israel. Seven 
months later, it- was refused. He 
had become one of tiie growing 
band of Soviet refuseniks. 



REFUSENIKS 


THE ARREST 


In 1972, Jewish activists in the 
Soviet . Union bad begun to 
compile lists of those who had. 
been refused exit visaS- Mach of 
the information canto from Israel. 
Sometimes knowledge of a re- 
■ teed erif visa was acquired at 
the visa office in Moscow, by ' 
approaching people as they cam* 
oat. Some declined to give their 
name' and address or the date -of 
their first application. They 
&hrt want to be known as 
refuseniks. Others were willing to 
be listed. 

• Thus a series of lists was 


Anatoly Shcharansky; his every movement, glance and thought 



the Soviet Union. After tiie 
names ^ been put in alphabet*-, 
cal order, city by city, each list 
was 'sent to the WesL Their 
arrival ■ made three things dear 
that the number of refuseniks was 
grow ing; tint die number of visas 
-panted in 1975 would fall wefl 
below the figures for 1974; and 
that the reasons given for the 
reteals were as absurd as they 
had always been. 

Where the reason was given by 
the visa office as. "against the 
interests of the State” or “State 
secrecy”, it was in most cases a 
fiction. Those Jews who were 
really Involved in any form of 
secret work were usually afraid to 
apply for an exit visa,, knowing 
that they would be bound to 
receive a refusal, and were not 
wilting to give up their careers for - 
nothing. Sometimes the absurdity 
of the reason was apparent from 
toe list: tor example, “reason 
given by visa office — secrecy; 
place of work - tiie Moscow 


Instead of replying with some 
statement of indignation, which 
was never his style, Shcharansky 
said be would give them an 
illustration. He would simply go 
out and be followed by the KGB 
minders who toiled him remorse- 
lessly, and the correspondents 
could come along and watch. 
With -two other Jewish activists, 
they put on their coats and went 
to the elevator. 


A wedding morning 
spent in prison 


Avital Shcharansky; end of an eight-year campaign for her husband's release 


The lists of refuseniks, with tbe 
reasons for their refusal, circulat- 
ed freely throughout toe Soviet 
Union and abroad. No effort was 
made by the Soviet authorities to 
step them. For five years, starting 
in 1972, before Shcharansky had 
become involved in the movement 
these lists were part of the 
straggle for exit vims. . In 1977, 
they were used as part u f the 
indictment a gainst Shcharansky. 


His KGB minders 
followed 
him everywhere 


On October 6 1973 Syrian and 
Egyptian forces attacked Israel 
The October War united Jewish 
activists in Moscow in a fierce 
bond. On October 13 as the 
battle continued on the Golan 
Heights and in the Sinai desert, 
hundreds of young Jews gathered 
outside the synagogue in Moscow 
in the severe cold of an early 
winter; among them was 
Shcharansky. Another was a girl 
.of 22. Her brother, also a 
‘refusenik, was then serving a 
short prison sentence for protest- 
ing against tbe growing number 
of refusals. Preparing him a 
package of warm clothes, the girl 
smuggled a note inside it, written 
Hebrew, telling him that 


in 


Israeli forces were approaching 
Damascus. 


The giri had no idea in which 
of tbe Moscow prisons her 
brother was being held. In search 
of advice, she went up to a group 
of young Jews who were holding 


a small demonstration on tbe 
steps of tbe synagogue. Several of 
the protesters tried to reassure 
her about her brother’s imprison- 
ment As she listened to them, a 
young man came up to her. It 
was Shcharansky. 

“He could see that I was 
afraid”, the giri remembered, 
“and he tried to comfort me. He 
asked me all about myselL my 
work, my plans to go to Israel ” 
“I'm really called Natan”, 
Shcharansky told her. “That’s 
what 1 will be called in Israel.” 

The young giri was Natalia 
Slights. Later she chose the 
Hebrew name Avital. She and the 
young man began to talk about 
Hebrew classes. Shcharansky. 
cold and shivering from ’flu, 
spoke nevertheless with an ani- 
mation which seemed to her 
remarkable. His every move- 
ment, glance and thought suggest- 
ed freedom. Looking at this 
enthusiastic young man for the 


first time, she later explained: “I 
thought, Israel is probably rather 
like him.” A few days lata- she 
went with Shcharansky to her 
first Hebrew lesson. 

In the spring of 1974. Avital, 
on Shcharansky 's insistence, ap- 
plied for an exit visa. While she 
awaited the decision, she and 
Shcharansky decided to get mar- 
ried. He had re-applied for an 
exit visa, and they hoped to be 
able to leave as man and wife. 
Refused a civil marriage, they 
tried a different route. They went 
to the Moscow synagogue. 'The 


No such meeting took place. 
On June 19 1974, the eve of 
President Nixon's second visit to 
Moscow, 18 Jews, including 
Shcharansky, were arrested and 
held in prison for the duration of 
Nixon’s visit 


His wife was told 
to leave quietiy 
so he could follow 


rabbi there was afraid”, Avital 
recalled. “He said no, he could 
not help. It would be a danger for 
the synagogue. He su&ested we 
go to a different city. I started go- 
ing to synagogue regularly and 
one day I met an old man, Girsfa 
Manevich, a very religious man 
and a leading authority on Jewish 
affairs. We arranged to have a 
meeting with him. 


While Shc haransk y was in 
prison, Avital was told that her 
request for an exit visa had been 
granted. There was only one 
condition: she must leave the- 
Soviet Union within 10 days. 
Avital did not know which way 
to turn; in a desperate attempt to 
see Shcharansky, she refused to 
pay for her exit visa until she had 
seen him. Tbe following day, she 
returned to the visa office to seek 
more time. “If you do not take 
this visa" they told her, “you 
will stay in Russia for the rest of 
your life, and you will have many 
problems.” Eventually, she decid- 
ed to hope for the best and take 
the visa. 


activist, I wanted to go to Israel, 
and it would be dangerous for the 
Jewish community and tbe syna- 
gogue if they married us", she 
later recalled. But then be asked 
to see a picture of her fiance, and 
when he realized it was 
Shcharansky, he promised to do 
all he could. The wedding was 



“These KGB operations”, 
Shcharansky explained, “had a 
certain etiquette of their own." 
First, one agent would enter the 
elevator, then* Shcharansky, then 
another KGB man. This was 
what happened. The two Western 
correspondents piled in behind 
Shcharansky. Amid the crush of 
KGB men, there was no room for 
one of the activists; who had to 
run down. ■

before AvitaTs exit visa . 

On the morning of his wed- 
ding, Anatoly was still in prison. 
At 10 o'clock, tbe KGB had told 
him he could leave his cell and 
go home Not wanting to let 


Israel, she thought, 
is probably 
rather like him 


Manevich made a wonderful 
speech about the miracle of . 
. Jewish survrvaL And the rabbi — 
who did not know Anatoly was a 
refusenik — understood what was 
happening because after the 
wedding ceremony we all started 
to sing Hebrew songs." 

In the days of waiting between Y 
getting her exit visa and her 
wedding, Avital had been assured 
that if she went to Israel “quietiy, 
with no fuss”, her husband would 
be allowed to join her within a 
matter of “a few months”. 


them have the last word he 
replied: “No, 1 haven't finished 
my book." 


Despite these assurances, Avital 
had been reluctant to leave. Bui 
Shcharansky convinced her that 
she should go. On July 5 1974, 
the last day on which her exit 
visa was valid, she flew out of the 
Soviet Union, first to Vienna and 
then to Israel 


When' Shcharansky. the two 
journalists and the KGB- men 
reached the ground floor, yet 
more KGB agents were waiting. 
The two journalists were pushed 
to one side. Shcharansky, pushed 
sharply from behind, was forced 
into a waiting car. 

The first news to reach the 
West of Sftchairansky’s arrest was 
m a telegram sent by his friends 
in Moscow late on the evening of 
March - 15.’ “Greatest fears 
realized”, h read. “Shcharansky 
arrested, now at Lefortovo pris- 
on, Moscow. Farailv informed 
KGB investigating Shc haransk y 
for crimes against State. Help 
please." 


Avital went to see Girsh 
Manevich to ask him if he could 
arrange a traditional Jewish 
wedding for them, under the 
traditional chuppab or canopy. 
“At first, he said he could not ar- 
range it My fiance was an 


Two hours later, tired and 
unshaven. Shcharansky returned 
home to find that he was to be 
married that day. He at once had 
a shower and hurried to the 
synagogue to complete the wed- 
ding arrangements. 


Despite the assurance which 
Avital had received, Shcharansky 
was refused permission to follow 
her. Wien be applied once more 
to leave, his application was 
rejected This time no reason was 
given. ... 


- That help was not long in 
coming. On March 17 1977, 
Avital Shcharansky flew from 
Jerusalem to London to begin the 
Jong campaign for her husband's 
release.

Why being an oddball may not be all that silly 


Eccentrics are seen as 


cranky or bizarre, 


but in a conformist 


world a psychologist 


thinks they have 


much to contribute 


T he world has too few 
eccentrics, according to 
Dr David Weeks, prin- 
cipal dinicaJ psychologist at 
the Royal Edinburgh Hospi- 
tal, who for nearly two years 
has been studying a group of 
volunteers the world might 
dismiss as oddball, offbeat, 
curious, cranky or bizarre in 
an attempt to find any 
common thread among them. 

“The result is entirely 
reassuring. They are probably 
a lot more mentally healthy 
than a lot of people who 
consider themselves to be 
normal. 

“If there is one cause for 
alarm it is that eccentrics are 


so rare. They have a lot to 
contribute, they often think 
very originally and, after 
talking to them at length, I 
think that society would be 
better if people generally were 
a bit more eccentric," he 
said. 

In a conforming, rule- 
ridden world, they represent- 
ed a bright flash of non-, 
conformity, although 
psychologists have devoted 
little time to studying them 
despite the buffer zone 
eccentrics provide between 
tbe dull norm and the darker 
territory of genuine mental 
illness. 

The Edinburgh study car- 
ried out by Dr Weeks and an 
assistant attracted a response 
from 170 people who felt 
they were eccentric They 
included joiners, a journalist, 
doctors, a surgeon, publisher 
and a restaurateur. 

“It was a wide cross- 
section that we interviewed 
or asked to .fill in a very 
detailed questionnaire. The 


results have been fed to a 
computer, but we have al- 
ready come up with 25 poults 
of similarity in the way 
eccentrics behave.” Dr Weeks 
said. 

They tended to be loners, 
often the eldest or the only 
child in a family, people who 
had been under a stronger 
parental spotlight than nor- 
mal, they prefe r red solitary, 
non-competitive sports such 
as swimming or hill- walking

E ccentrics often felt tbe 
“ordinary world" was 
mundane and out of 
step with them. As eccentric

that he or she was different, 
ahead of their time, and that 
others had stolen or exploited 
their good ideas. 

Their thinking was often 
brilliant even when it was 
completely unscientific.

Lent: giving up 
is hard to do 


A nn Nairn was taken into 
hospital when she was 
eight months prcgnantfthe 
baby was lying crossways 
and needed to be watched. One 
morning her obstetrician arrived to 
see her with his Hass of students. 
They all studied her notes. “And 
what”, he asked the students, “is 
wrong with this mother?” 

A forbidding young woman at 
the back piped upr“She’s too old”. 
There was a little embarrassed 
laughter. “That means she's more 
likely to have a baby with Down's 
syndrome, her blood pressure is 
probably very high and she’ll have 
- more' complications at birth.” 
Hardly comforting, even if funny 
when later recounted as a joke to 
friends. The disapproving medical 
student was, of course, perfectly 
right Ann Nairn was 44, and 44, 
from a purely medical point of 
view, is not the ideal time to 
produce a first baby. But with 
amniocentesis, the test which • 
reveals foetal abnormalities, now 
widely in use, and with vast 
advances in the study of fertility, 
the feet is that many older women 
can and are having first babies 
perfectly successfully. 

In New York, ft seems, there fias 
recently developed J a vogue for 
profess io nal women' to'-wait untfl 
39 -or 40 before starting tbeir " 
. families. In London, women bar- 
risters, bankers, journalists and 
doctors appear to be beginning to 
do the same. 

As Penny Bladde explains in 
Becoming a Mother after Thirty, 
the women in social classes one 
and two are more likely to have 
their first babies later than those in ; 
classes three, four and five (and 
even then the average age of all 
mothers, though rising, was still 
only 25J5 in 1982). 

O ver 40 may indeed sound 
old - but whax, for both 
babies and mothers, does 
it actually mean? For Ann 
Nairn it has meant nothing but 
pleasure. Amy will be one in two - 
weeks’ time. She is round, smiling 
and extremely contented. The past 
year has been fun. Even the. 
months leading up to her arrival 
were good, if difficult 
Ann had had trouble conceiving 
at 42, having been married 10 
years, she decided that she could - . 
no longer leave it all to fete and 
that the time had come for a last 
concerted attempt to get pregnant 
She put aside her work, as a 
television producer and govern- 
ment agency adviser, and started 
attending a private fertility clinic. 
“It was immediatley cheering to be

When life begins at forty 


The problems of childbirth can be increased if the mother is over 40 . 
But, as Caroline Moorehead reports, so too can the joys 


doing something, to have made a 
decision. No one made me fed 
101 - 

Today, Ann Nairn is very dear 
about what having a child late 
means to her. “After 40, your life 
tends to be better organized. 
You’ve got a good network of 
friends and somehow you' know 
who. you are. You’ve got more, 
money. And, of course, I’ve got 
what I wanted: having wanted it so 
very badly. I’m not going to throw 
it away.” 

If there is a drawback to her late 
baby, she says, ie& t he exhaustion. 
AH mothers over 40 talk of being 
tired; they are tired before the baby 
ccunes and even more so after. 
Diana Hughes, a magistrate and 
serving on a number of voluntary 
committees, gave up work alto- 
gether when she was five months 
pregnant. Sbe was 40. She was so 
tired sbe couldn’t get out of bed. 

Her story is somewhat different 
She started trying to get pregnant 
soon after she mamed. at 27.. 
“There’s not a hospital in London, 
or probably even ' southern En- 
gland. that I. didn’t go to.” Three 
operations and prolonged treat- 
ment at a fertility clinic produced 
Robert, now 18 months old. “I had 
been obsessed by the thought of 
having a baby for nearly 14 years. 

I really think I would have had a 


nervous breakdown if I had foiled. 
Fd been frequently depressed. My 
wony while pregnant was that 
perhaps I had put everything bn to 
that, and that once the baby came 
Fd really find it was my life whicb 
was wrong.” 

Sbe needn’t have worried. For 
her, as for Ann Nairn, the 
experience has been happy. She, 
too. has thought a great deal about 
what her single baby will mean. 
“At 20 1 was very selfish, I wanted 
to get on with my own fife. Now I 
know very much better just how 
short the five years before he goes 
to school really are. 1 don't intend 
to waste them.” 


D iana Hughes breastfed 
Robert for 14 months. 
She has looked after him 
almost entirely without 
help, “even if I do get dreadfully 
bored with baby games and I don’t 
like bong the only older mother at 
children's parties and in the park." 

Realizing that she will be 60 
when her son readies 19 she also 
considers the future with great 
care. “That's an advantage. . I try 
and learn by the mistakes my 
friends have made. I look at their 
teenage children and model myself 
on the others whose children are 
turning out well” Best of all, she 
says, is what the child has done to 


her marriage: “It has made us feel 
like a real family." 

Pausing in mid career to have 
her baby has been easier for her 
than for many. But most older 
first-time mothers who have 
worked say that waiting gives you 
vital time to establish youselfi so 
that, as one woman put it, when 
you do go back it's not a question 
of “Who?* when you ring up, by 
“Hello, when are you back?” And 
if you decide not to return to work, 
you can look back on the years 
when you had appetite and energy 
for a career, and the resulting 
confidence h leaves you with. 

Sara Dale was 41 when she 
married, 42 when she had a baby. 
Having minded, in her thirties, not 
having children, she had long since 
put the idea behind her. Mother- 
hood now came as a very pleasant 
shock; she instantly adopted two 
more. She is now 55. To look after 
them all, she stopped her success- 
ful job as a film director, but 
without regrets. When they were 
aD nt school, she had no trouble 
going back to it, part time. She has 
now just finished a degree with the 
Open University. 

“When I look around and see 
women in their thirties panicking 
in care they never have a child, 1 
want to tell them: relax, get on 
-'with your work, don't panic, 


The medical risks of late pregnancy 


O 


Since the advent of andot 
obstetrics, death in cblldbiitli is 
extremely rare. But its likelihood 
bears a riose relationship to the 
age of the woman: after the age oi 
35, mortality from the complica- 
tions of pregnancy and delivery is 
well over four times that in the 
pregnant population in general; 
after 45 the chances of disaster 
rise- to 15 . times that of the 
younger woman. 

In the older woman there is also 
an appreciable mortality from 
inddental disease made worse by 
pregnancy. Babies of the over 35s 
are 50 per oral more likely to be 
stillborn, or die in the first week 
of life, than these of younger 
women. 

Older women are less efficient 
at reproduction in every aspect; 
their fertility bite, unexplained 


miscarriages are more common, 
premature delivery more likely 
and their babies are smaller. 

Labour is more efficient if 
women have tbeir first baby before 
they are 30. In older women each 
stage lasts longer and carries an 
increased chance of causing exces- 
sive stress to mother or baby. 
Bccaase of thisjorceps delivery or 
Caesarean section are needed 
more often. Haemorrhage, and the 
retention of the placenta (after- 
birth) also occurs more often in 
older woman. In pregnancy, high 
blood pressure and toxaemia are 
frequent complications in the over 
35s. 

The result is damage to the 
placenta, which is too snail to 
sustain normal intra-vterine 
gr ow th in pregnancy and may be 
im jeqmte to supply oxygen to the 
baby during labour. 


Twins are more common in 
older women, which increases the 
tikriibood.ofinteauTiages, prema- 
ture deliveries and prolonged 
labours. 

Fibroids are common in the over 
40s. In pregnancies they can give 
rise to acute pain, and during 
deliveries very occasionally ob- 
struction. Down’s Syndrome (mon- 
golism) and other related 
chromosomal disorders increase 
after the age of 35, when the 
incidence is one in every 650 
pregnancies. By the age of 40 this 
has rises to one in 50, and 
thereafter progressively increases. 

Seme rare diseases are found 
more often if the father is over the 
age of 40. But roost doctors believe 
that tbeir risk is not great enough 
to warrant foetal monitoring. 

Dr Thomas Stuttaford 


you've got much more time than 
you think. Bijoy iL You'll enjoy 
the baby more later." 

Not all mothers, of course, have 
found it so easy. For some, the 
medical warnings are real, and the 
consequent drawbacks enough to 
make life extremely hard , especial- 
ly if accompanied by bad luck. 
Norma Ricketts was 40 when she 
married and 42 when her son 
Adam was boro. She wasn’t really 
expecting children, having had 
gynaecological difficulties when 
younger. But she was pleased and 
for the first year, despite her 
husband's slight misgivings, they 
were very happy. Then he sudden- 
ly had a heart attack and died. 
Adam was exactly one. 

T he medical problems she 
had endured throughout 
pregnancy persisted; she 
had put on three stone, 
and never seemed able to take it 
off She developed a stress allergy 
and her ankles are still often too 
swollen to be able to take Adam to 
the park. He is now six and a half 
and energetic. While delighting in 
the company he gives her, Norma 
worries about their isolation. 
“Adam doesn't know what it is to 
have loving grandparents. My 
sister’s children are grown up. My 
closest friends are becoming grand- 
parents while I do the school run. 
Friends who know how lied I am 
don't ask me out so much 
anymore.” 

Norma has been unlucky. All of 
the other “elderly primagravida” 
women I spoke to - the rather 
unkind term for those who in 
medical eyes seem past their prime 
— seemed full of euphoria over 
what they had achieved, even if 
sanguine about possible pitfalls. 
“Motherhood has no status", says 
Diana Hughes. “I think it should 
be up to us, for the most part freer 
of financial and social worries, to 
show that it should have.” For the 
rest, they all seem to collect the 
slightly self deprecating jokes that 
come with having babies when 
your face is lined and your hair 
grey. 

When Amy was 10 days (rid, 
Ann Naim pul her in a sling and 
took her to a baby dothes shop to 
buy a sweater. Standing undecided 
before a rack she said to the rather 
elderly lady behind the counter 
that she wasn't quite sure of the 
size. “I never quite know either”, 
said the woman comfortingly. “I’m 
a granny loo." 

Becoming a Mother after Thirty is 
published tomorrow by Basil 
Blackwell at £18.50. 


f That very old-fash- 
g. ioned notion of giving 
■Sk up some thing for Lent 
nBt has never been easy. 

However small the 
sacrifice, the six weeks 
which start today. Ash 
Wednesday, can seem very 
long. 

But over the years I've 
found another difficulty 
creeping in. People, public 
opinion, call it what you will, 
are invading my Lent. It's 
like a conspiracy. 

Health fanatics, in partic- 
ular, are bent on taking the 
spirituality out of my Lenten 
exercise. The “it's bad for 
you" school are making 
nonsense of my six weeks' 
sacrifice. It came home 
forcibly to me this year when 
1 mentioned I was giving up 
my great weakness, cream 
cakes. 

* Before I could say “Lent” 
I found myself unwillingly 
locked in a conversation 
about calories, weight loss, 
combining exercise with diet- 
ing, etc. There wasn't any 
point where 1 could protest: 
“But I'm giving them op for 
Lent . . ." 

I can see that giving up 
small pleasures sounds a bit 
feeble. I know it's a long way 
from wearing sack doth and 
ashes. But since it means 
something to me. I'd like my 
little sacrifice to be because 
it's Lent and not for any 
secular purpose. 

There was a time when 
giving up anything had a 
definite Lenten flavour, bnt 
no longer. Cutting out some- 
thing nowadays is assumed 
to be for your physical well- 
being and not yonr spiritnaL 
Take, or rather don't take; 
sugar in yonr tea. If you are 
in the habit of tipping three 
or four spoonfuls into tea or 
coffee, it’s very hard to do 
without. I know — I’ve tried. 

If you virtuously reject the 
sugar bowl the reaction is: 
“Oh, very wise. Personally 
we never keep the stuff in 
the house”, followed by a 
lecture on what sugar does to 
your system. 

Health-conscious mothers 
give their children fruit 
instead of sweets in an effort 
to cut down on fillings and 
painful encounters with the 
dentist Very commendable. 
I'm sore, but tatrwi to its 
logical condnsion well end 
up a nation of non sweet- 
eaters. 

If I contemplate giving np 
alcohol, friends will think

I'm taking the diink/drive 
laws very seriously and won't 
risk losing my driving li- 
cence. 

Cigarette smokers — and 
giving up smoking used to be 
a great favourite — will face 
a similar difficulty. Who is 
going to believe they're 
giving it up for Lent? The 
anti-smoking lobby wifi just 
take them to tbeir bosom 
and assume that the adver- 
tising campaigns have won 
another convert. 

There was a time when 
giving np the weekly cinema 
trip was a sacrifice par 
excellence. No longer. The 
custom, for me anyway, of 
going to the cinema isn't 
what it was. Who wants to 
pay a minim um £2 per head 
plus car parking dmrgp*, 
etc, when a good video and 
your own fireside is cheaper 
and more enjoyable ? Anoth-

From Jo Ash. 

H eat hside Gardens.

It seems Penny 
Penick(“ Working women 
who want to go home”, 
Monday Page, January 27) 
oversimplifies matters. In- 
deed the comparisons she 
makes seem lo betray more 
concern for a neat piece of 
writing than for the truth. 

I can understand that as a 
working woman” herself, 
she may have something ol 
an emotional reaction against 
those who want to “go back 
home”, but I do not think it 
very helpful to paint such a 
naive picture. This is a 
complex situation whicb 
causes many of her readers 
serious heart searching. 

It is just too easy to 
dismiss women who want to 
give up their careers to have 
a family as “drop outs”, who 
give up “when the going gets 
rough”.

The following dishes are 
adapted from recipes cooked 
by . two entrants in the 
regional finals of the Young 
Chef Of The Year 1986. The 
subject of this year’s competi- 
tion is healthy, eating. For his 
first course, Shaun Cook of 
the Cooper Inn, ftragbpurne/ 
Berkshire, made a dish of 
marinated leeks with a toma- 
to and winter savoury sorbet. 
The leek part of the dish 
stands very well on its own. 

Marinated teaks 

Serves four 

450a (11b) small leeks ~~ 

1 shallot-- 
12 fennel seeds 
5 tablespoons, lemon wnejjir 
or' wWte Wine vinegar -. ■ _ 


Thinly pared zest of % lemon 

5 tablespoons sunflower oB 
150ml (K pint water) 

6 peppercorns 

Salt - - 

If there are only large leeks 
available, use at least double 
the quantity, and strip them 
down.. The outer leaves can 
-be used for soup or a puree. 
Clean the leeks well and cut 
- them -into 5cm (2rincb) 
lengths. Peel and chop the 
shallot 

Put the shallot, fennel 
seedv vinegar, zest, oil, 
water, peppercorns, and salt 
into a pan. Bring to the boil 
and remove from the beat. 
Blanch the leeks in boiling 
water ' for two minutes (or 
steam them) and refresh 
them in iced water. This 
preserves both colour and 
texture. 

Place the leeks in the 
marinade and bring to the 
boiL- Remove the pan from 
foe beat and stand m a bowl 
of icc to cool down as quickly 
as possible. Leave to man-, 
naie. for at least two. hours 
and up io 24. . 


Remove the leeks from the 
marinade and arrange them 
on a serving plate or plates. 
Take out the lemOD zest and 
dress the leeks with some of 
the. marinade. Serve with 
plenty of warm, crusty bread. 

The next dish was the 
vegetarian main course of- 
fered by Stephen Duffieid of 
the Imperial Hotel, Great 
Yarmouth. I tasted these 
parcels of carrot wrapped in 
spinach and served on spa- 
ghetti with fresh tomato 
before I saw the recipe and 
was surprised by the simplic- 
ity of the ingredients. The 
tastes and textures are unusu- 
ally lively and satisfying. For 
hearty appetites, double the 
quantities given in the recipe.

leafed spinach sold in Greek 
shops is an idea! substitute. 
Cabbage could be used in- 
stead, or opened out layers of 
cooked leek. 

Scrape and finely grate the 
carrots. Cook them lightly, 
without fet, >in a non-stick 
pan with the garlic and 
lemon juice. They should 
retain some of their crisp- 
ness. Season with salt and 
pepper and set aside to cool. 
Sweat the spinach leaves in a 
covered pan over a low heat 
and then cool and season 
them with salt, pepper and 
nutmeg. 

Open out the spinach and

parcels of carrot Set them on

In the meantime cook the 
spaghetti in plenty of boiling, 
salted water. Peel, deseed and 
dice the tomatoes. Combine 
the freshly cooked spaghetti 
with the diced tomato and 
season it with salt, pepper

ANC leader Nelson Mandela 
may be released and flown to 
London in the next few days, 
inside sources in South Africa 
told me last night His continued 
imprisonment embarrasses Presi- 
dent Botha, who believes his 
release could help defuse the 
township unrest and placate 
South Africa’s critics abroad. 
Previous reports that Mandela 
would be set free — the most 
recent that he might be included 
in a swap with the Russians — 
proved unfounded: but my infor- 
mants tell me that this plan 
stands the best chance of any. 
Botha is naturally reluctant to 
have Mandela at large in South 
Africa during the present tense 
atmosphere and Mandela himself 
is said to have turned down 
another option — exile in 
Zambia, where the ANC has its 
headquarters. On the other hand 
he could come to Britain — which 
more than any other foreign 
country has an interest in a 
peaceful settlement in South 
Africa - until the situation had 
quietened sufficiently for him to 
return home. Last night the FO 
said no approach had been made 
to it but “all sorts of rumours 
had been buzzing.” 


The signing of the Channel 
Tunnel treaty today marks an 
end as well as a beginning. It is 
the end of the government’s 
untramelled role as principal 
player. Bom now on the initia- 
tive largely lies elsewhere. 

So far. progress has been 
remarkably smooth. The tunnel 
has escaped the fate of most civil 
engineering projects of its scale in 
Britain: it has not been subject to 
I the seaching examination and 
possible delay of a public inquiry. 

Why the government chose 
this particular project to resurrect 
the proposition that might makes 
right is unclear. After all, 
Stansted and Sizewdl were 
equally suitable for such heroic 
treatment yet both went, or are 
going, through the normal hoops. 

Perhaps the sheer nerve of the 
derision not to have an inquiry 
numbed the opposition. Or it 
mav have been simply that, 
unlike Stansted or Sizewell, there 
is a national consensus support- 
ing the tunnel Whatever the 
reason, tine government set itself 
a seemingly impossible timetable 
and succeeded. 

The next steps will be harder. 
Even though the government will 
itself introduce the bill giving 
effect to the treaty. Channel

Not long ago, the lawyers bunged 
in a claim for a pay rise of 30 to 
I 40 per cent for publicly funded 
cases, which was promptly ns 
1 jected by Lord Hailsham, the 
minister responsible for the 
nationalized half of the industry.

1 have not, I assure you, come 
hoe today to jeer, foe things I 
keep bearing about the appalling 
poverty to which banisters have 
been reduced would in any case 
temper my mockery. Eminent 
silks have been bitten by dogs 
from which they were trying to 
snatch a bone to gnaw; others, 
having pawned their wigs and 
been unable to redeem them, 
have been obliged to refuse briefs 
until their own hair had grown 
long enough to pass muster. 

One such case, indeed, has 
actually been reported in the 
press; it was that of a barrister 
who, to make ends meet, was 
moonlighting as a waiter in a 
Chinese restanianL (1 know him 
well; he’s foe one who always 
brings the wrong dish and blames 
foe customer). Anyway, I am 
happy to make more widely 
known the efforts of a group of 
public-minded citizens who nave 
set up soap kitchens outride foe 
gate of Gray’s Inn. together with 
containers in which guts may be 
deposited. Particularly needed 
are socks, hard-boiled eggs, bala- 
clava helmets and beef dripping; 
ail such articles will be distrib- 
uted by members of foe Bar’s 
national executive, in strict order 
of need, to their more indigent 
colleagues, some of whom 
haven’t had a square Rolls-Royce 
for months. 

Nevertheless, there are still 
certain questions of public policy 
to be considered. The miners and 
foe schoolteachers, in their very 
different ways, have recently 
taken industrial action; the law- 
yers, provided they obey all the 
provisions of the government’s 
trades union laws, are folly 
entitled to do the same in 
furtherance of their dispute. But 
the analogy may be somewhat 
more exact than many of them 
might wish. The miners were 
offered a productivity deal; they

of Rural England, with foe

with the tunnel's environmental

It is foe environment that 
could prove the government's 
sternest . test. Environmental 
opinion was broadly united in 
preferring the CTG proposal to 
foe other options on offer.

some as environmentally wel-

deeply hostile to the effects of foe 
“consequent” or “induced” dev-

Environmental fears have been 
fuelled by foe decision of the five 
“concrete pouring" members of 
the group - Balfour Beatty, 
Costain. Tarmac. Taylor Wood- 
row and Wimpey — to establish a 
joint, property company to take 
advantage of foe opportunities 
created by the tunnel. Commer- 
cially, this is only prudent. 

The Channel Tunnel is clearly 
a very risky venture. Delays and 
unforeseen technical . hitches 
could push up costs dramatically.

working practices and the dosure 
of toss-making pits. The teach er s 
also came up against demands 
that they should undertake cer- 
tain strictly nun-pedagogical du- 
ties, such as supervising school 
dinners. And both unions were 
told that, at a time when every 
effort was being made to contain 
public expenditure, there could 
be no exception for them. 

On the latter point, 1 cannot 
see how there could be any 


serious argument Possibly Lord 
Hailsham will not stick for ever

at the S per cent offered; as the 
negotiating, or foe strike, drags

backdated to foe beginning of foe 
year. But only the lawyers, surely, 
would combine gaff and naivety 
in such quantities as to produce a 
demand fin* an increase of 
between 30 and 40 per cent (I 
will give a pair of best seats at

genuine quote from a practising 


genuine quote from a practising 
barrister — Hansard is a likely 
source — denouncing either Mr 
Scargfll or Mr Jarvis for demand- 
ing a higher pay increase than the 
country can afford). 

But it is the matter of 
restrictive practices that, in Bertie 
Wooster's words, makes the old 
bead swim. Last week, I touched 


upon some of the Old Spanish 
Customs beloved of the printing 
unions. I think I spoke no more 
harshly than was deserved; bat I 
have to say that the equivalent 
moflkeyshmes practised by the 
lawyers most have Sogat and the 
NGA spitting blood with envy. 
As long ago as 1968, Professor 
Michael Zander published a book 
called Lawyers and the Public 
Interest : A Study in Restrictive 
Practices . 1 rang irim up to ask 
him which of the immense list of 
crimes that he detailed — against 
the dient, the nation, foe public 
purse and even credulity — have 
by now been abandoned, and 1 
swear 1 could bear him scratching 
his head as he struggled to think 
of an answer. 

Come; let me make a perfectly 
serious proposal for resolving the 
dispute between the government 
and the Amalgamated Society of 
Widow-Grinders and Licensed 
Pickpockets. I shall list a small 
selection of the Bar’s restrictive 
practices; for every one that the 
Bar Council will publicly declare 
itself willing to abandon, I shall 
actively campaign for a rise of 1 
per cent over the 5 per cent 
promised. (This may bear fruit; 
even the present government has 
often smiled upon pay rises 
matched by increased productiv- 
ity)- 

There are at present some 


80,000 cases a year in the Crown 
Courts. Although in some cares a 
litigant or defendant may repre- 
sent himsdfiin virtually all those 
in which a lawyer is engaged, be 
must be a barrister, solicitors 
have only foe barest and most 
restricted right to speak for a 
client, although many cases 
involve only the most straight- 
forward advocacy, and even in 
many which require more, many 
a solicitor could do at least as 
well as* a banister. Is the Bar 
willing to agree, without qual- 
ification, to a foil and equal right 
of advocacy? 

Here’s a simpler one. At 
present, High Court judges are 
appointed only from the ranks of 
the Bar, wffl foe Bar now declare 
that it is perfectly happy for 
appropriately qualified solicitors 
to be appointed to the Bench,' 

and winin g to camp ai g n in 

Parliament and outside for such a 
change? 

Here’s a tricky one. Some 
lawyers are better than others; 
experienced solicitors will usually 
know which is which, and even 
some litigants may. The dividing 
line is not in practice always 
between QCs and juniors, al- 
though the QCs fee is invariably 
higher. To encourage true com- 
petition, will foe Bar be willing to 
see the rank of QC abolished, 
and for all hamsters to be 
engaged cm estimates of their 
int rinsic merits? . 

And here is a big one; some 
would say the biggest of alL In 
many countries there is only (me 
legal profession; there is no 
reason to believe that that fact 
alone leads to a lower standard of 
justice, though our dual system 
certainly leads to a higher 
standard of costs. Are the 
barristers willing to embrace a 
complete fusion of our two 
branches? 

There are other, broader ques- 
tions. Would foe Bar give an 
undertaking that barristers will 
always find out what their case is 
about before coming into court, 
rather than malting the discovery 
in foe course of foe proceedi ngs , 
or even, as in some delightful 
instances, afterwards? Will it co- 
operate in legislation to make it i 
possible for a dient to sue his 
barrister for neglige nc e? Will 
banisters give up headline-hunt- 
ing (“Duchess ‘Poisonous Liar’, 
says QC” - a real example, not a 
parody by me), even when it is 
less flagrant than its use by that 
old rogue Gilbert Beyfus? (Stop' 
licking your lips, gentlemen; 
Beyfus is dead). 

There’s the bargain, then. If the 
Bar will give up the seven blood- 
squeezers I have listed, it will 
have the full force of Levin’s 
rubber dagger in its fight for a 


pay rise, and by the terms of the 
bargain I shall be obliged to 
campaign for a rise of 12 per 
cent True, that still falls far short 
of the 30 to 40 per cent 
demanded, but I dare say that if 
the Bar put its mind to the 
problem it coukl easily come up 
with a renunciation of enough 
similar wheezes to raise the ante 
to 50 per emit, or even 100. May 
it please , the court? 


Iran: the ayatollahs’ mixed blessings 


The Iranian countryside is a 
world away from the bustle and 
politics of Tehran. It was there 
that support for the ayatollahs 
was strongest when their experi- 
ment in Islamic rule began seven 
years ago, and it was there, is the 
Shi-ite heartland, that faith in the 
new regime was likely to persist 
longest. 

I have just made the journey 
from London, where I now live, 
back to my borne village about 
20 miles from the city of 
Nishabonr, birthplace of the poet 
Omar Khayam, in eastern Iran. 
Today feelings are mixed about 
the changes brought by foe 
Islamic revolution. 

The villagers’ lives have 
changed dramatically, mid some 
changes have been to the good. 
They now have better roads, 
telephones, bigger schools and 
modem public baths. Most of foe 
bouses have running water, there 
is a small library and, although 
women are less free than before 
foe revolution, more girls attend 
the now sexually segregated 
schools, which have the mullahs’ 
approval. 

But the villagers are angry at 
the low prices tire government 
offers them for their cereal crops; 
they say it would be cheaper to 
buy subsidized bread in foe 


nearby towns than to bake their 
own. They resent the nepotism 
and bribery increasingly common 
among local officialdom. The 
trend nas not escaped the eye of 
foe ayatollahs in Tehran, and a 
number of clerics and officials 
have been jailed for taking 
bribes. 

One other big complaint is the 
dearth of medical care. Hundreds 
of doctors have left Iran for foe 
West and those who have stayed, 
prefer to work in foe cities. 

The lure of foe town is 
undimihished. In the past 20 
years the population of Tehran 
has increased fivefold and has 
more than doubted since foe 
revolution. For foe first time, it is 
thought, a majority of Iran’s 45 
million people have become 
town dwellers. 

Then there is foe war with 
Iraq. About two dozen young 
men from the village have joined 
the Baseq Volunteer Corps and 
frequently do a stmt at the front 
Many more would like to 
accompany them. Military train- 
ing and ideological indoctrination 
occupy a large part of their lives. 

The boys return from foe war 
whh combat jackets and a 
strange new vocabulary com- 
bining religion and warfare. They 
recount with relish their tales of 


bravery and anguish, victory and 
defeat, and eulogise the fallen, 
the captured and the m is sing. 

This village has been lucky. So 
far it has not suffered one 
casualty. The neighbouring vil- 
lage, less fortunate, has a roll of 
17 killed and several missing. 
However, the Iraqis do not 
always give the names of their 
prisoners to foe International 
Red Cross, and some Iranian 
soldiers long believed dead by 
their families have subsequently 
been found alive m PoW camps. 

Aside from the war, television 
has brought foe most important 
change m village life. In the 
Shah’s time, television was 
banned by the mullahs. Now it is 
one of foe government’s main 
instruments of indoctrination 
and most villagers have access to 
a set. 

The programmes are pon- 
derous and boring, but television 
itself remains a novelty which 
attracts large audiences in foe 
countryside, A fast-talking mul- 
lah who mixes his religion and 
revolutionary preaching with 
gripping stories has become a 
local hero. When be inspected a 
literacy campaign in foe village 
recently be was mobbed, as a pop 
star might be in foe West. 

Television and foe villagers’ 


participation in the revolution 
have raised expectations for the 
future. The pre-revolutionary 
craze for electrical appliances has 
become more intense and the 
waiting hsx for locally assembled 
cars is longer than ever. 


But whatever the villagers’ 
reservations about foe revolution 
and its consequences, it was dear 
to me that a majority of them 
still support foe present leader- 
ship in Tehran, although this 
may not be true of other rural 
co mmunit y* which are not 
Persian or Sbi-ite. For foe 
villagers, as for many urban 
critics of the regime, opposition 
leaders who have sought refuge 
abroad have become irrelevant. 
They see foe only hope of 
improvement in the emergence 
of a more realistic and competent 
government from inside the 
present establishment. 

This hope will take time to be 
realized. For the moment, the 
war with Iraq looks set to 
continue as long as Ayatollah 
Khomeini is alive, and it will 
take rims before his designated 
successor, Ayatollah Montazeri/ 
gains the stature needed to 
initiate a radical change of policy. 


The cost of economic expansion, 
in the absence of an effective 
incomes strategy, is higher infla- 
tion. Governments of foe centre- 
left in Australia, New Zealand, 
Spain and Italy are all experi- 
menting with different, typ« 
incomes strategies which have 
useful lessons for parties ■ in 
Britain such as the SDP. .. 

These countries have chosen to 
place their . incomes st rateg ies 
within a framework of greater 
market liberalism, with reforms 
to e nhance incentives and create 
more flexible labour markets. 
Bob Hawke’s Labour government 
in .Australia, for example, (te- 
dded to expand the economy to 
reduce unemployment. Hie econ- 
omy grew 63 per emit last year 
and is expected to grow by 
around 4 per edit this year. 

However, foe Hawke gpvero- 
ment chose to fight inflation and 
unemptoyment at the same time. 
Inflation has halved to 65 per 
rent and unemployment fallen to 
. & per cent from 10-3 per cent. 
The chief weapon against infla- 
tion *i««; been- an incomes policy 
in which the nninns have been 
persuaded to regard wages in- 
dexed to consume price rises as 
a mi»Ti«nnm rather than a 

minim um. 

The government has also been 
p hasing out a number of labour 
regulations and has helped to 
reduce wage pressure t hrou gh 
more competition- The growth 
rate wiO make it easier for foe 
government to restrain inflation 
by containing consumer price 
rises through cuts in indirect 
taxes. This will also stim ulate 
demand and help to lower 

unemployment. 

In New Zealand, the Labour 
government of David Lange has 
scr apped exchange controls, re- 
moved all tax c o ncessions on 
new mortgages, life assurance 
contracts and pension schemes, 
and pursued a number of other 
suppiy-side measures to improve 
efficiency. 

It seems to be working. The 
economy is growing at around 4 
per cent and registered un- 
employment has fallen from a 
postwar peak of nearly 5:4 per 
cent to 17 per cent last 
September. The government has 
recently announced its intention 
of cutting income tax by an 
average of 25 per cent, to be paid . 
for by an acrossfoe-board Goods 
& Service Tax.Most interestingly,

curity system. „

in three years. 

The Gonzafez pay strategy has 
been distinctive. Strict wage 


norms of between ? and Iff per 
cent for the principal public 


.sector industries and enterprises 
last year have been largely 
adhered to. Pay increases lave 
also been held in check, by 
lairing Th*m to improvements in 
unit labour costs and productiv- 
ity. Wage rises in foe private 
sector will also have to slow 
down substantially if the official 
target of 7 per cent inflatipo is to 
be attained. 

. The government has taken a 
number of steps — including the 
of regulations governing 
the dismissal of workers,' part- 
time employment, and foe in- 
troduction of fixed-term con- 
tracts — to liberalize the labour 
market and establish a closer 
relationship between wages and 
productivity. 

fit Italy the coalition govern- 
ment, under the Socialist Prime 
Minister Bettino Cnuri, has also 
pursued deregulation measures. 
Artificial curbs on bank deposits 
have been lifted, the social 
security budget printed and a 
range of anomalies crated. The 
government has . also tried to 
improve tax incentives by broad- 
ening, the tax base and increasing 
the emphasis on indirect taxes. 


flexibility in wage settlements. 

The Spanish Socialist govern- 
ment, under Felipe Gonzalez, has 
pursued a number of maiket- 
oriented policies. A more flexible

- There have been reforms to the 
expensive hiding wage scale 
(Scale mobile”) system. Between 
1983 ami 1985, while retaining 
the baric index-linked mecha- 
nism, the government reduced 
the index-linked portion of 
wages. For 1985/86 foe govern- 
ment has set a target limit of 7

For 19 years this sleepy island

“Walter? Hi! I'm that English-

With difficulty I wrote down 
what Walter dictated over the

Apparently, according to Walter,

V tribute to Shcharansky's own 
steadfastness under persecu- 
tion, and a tribute to the 
loyaJty and persistence of his 
family and supporters in the 
Soviet Union and abroad. 

What Shcharansky's release 
is not is evidence of any 
change of heart in the 
Kremlin either towards 
dissenters or towards those 
who seek to leave the Soviet 
Union. When Shcbaransky 
crossed the Glienecke Bridge 
in Berlin in the full glare of 
television cameras, it was no 
v altruistic gesture on the part 
L • of the Soviet authorities — 
although they will doubtless 
present it as such. It reflected 
rather a calculation in Mos- 
cow that Soviet interests were 
best served by letting him go. 

In the short term, their 
calculation rested on the 
damage Shcharansky’s contin- 
ued imprisonment was inflict- 
ing on the Soviet Union's 
reputation abroad: the 


wnnin reacn once the 
Shcharansky affair ceases to 
obtrude. There are con- 
cessions on trade and arms 
control from the Americans 
to be played for a resumption 
of diplomatic relations with 
Israel. In the longer terra, 
perhaps there is the prize of 
Soviet participation in Mid- 
dle East peace talks. 

The Soviet authorities may 
have shrewdly banked on the 
tendency of Western opinion 
to fix on the individual rather 
than the principle. It has been 
the Shcharansky case, rather 
than the freedom for all 
Russians, Jew or gentile, to 
choose their place and coun- 
try of residence. Shcharansky, 
the symbol of the Soviet 
Union's Jewish refuseniks, is 
free. The danger now is 
neglect of those who are left 
behind. 

There are upwards of 
100,000 Soviet citizens who 
have been refused visas to go 
to Israel, as Shcharansky was, 
and who now find themselves 


DR SLABBERT LEAVES HIS POST 


South Africa has once again 
observed Mr Alan Paton's 
rule: in the beloved country 
hope for the future is usually 
** followed by despair within 24 
hours. Thus has the moderate 
excitement engendered by 
President Botha's reformist 
speech at the opening of 
Parliament been thoroughly 
dampened by two not un- 
connected events: the star- 
tling and precipit resignation 
of Dr Frederik Van Zyl 
Slabbert, leader of the Liberal 
Opposition in the White 
House of Assembly, and 
President Botha's own brutal 
repudiation of his foreign 
minister for spelling out the 
inevitable consequences of 
Pretoria's new - and in 
nationalist terms - heretical 
t commitment to power shar- 
ing with the country’s black 
majority: the eventual elec- 
tion of a black president 

That repudiation was 
couched in terms which in 
other, milder, political climes 
would have left Foreign 
Minister Botha no choice but 
to resign. But nationalist 
politicians are made of 
sterner stuff. 

Instead Dr Slabbert re- 
signed. It would been much 
better for everyone concerned 
if Mr Pik Botha had taken his 
hat and his followers and quit 
the Nationalist Party caucus 
to create a pressure group on 
the left of government and if 
i Dr Slabbert had suppressed 
his moral qualms and re- 
mained in his seat. 


the Opposition's sense of the 
“grotesque irrelevance" of the 
South African parliament was 
deeply felt. It was certainly 
exacerbated by the 1983 
constitution which excluded 
the country's black majority 
and which Dr Slabbert’s party 
bitterly opposed. There is 
equally little doubt that those 
who believe extra par- 
liamentary action is the only 
true force for change in South 
Africa are today cheering Dr 
Slabbert’s resignation, which 
however personal its motives 
remains a political statement 
with profound overtones 
The first effect is already 
being felt by Dr Slabbert's 
own dismayed followers. The 
Progressive Federal Party 


its dissaray in the wake of his 
departure, that its role as 
official Oposition could 
shortly be usurped by Dr 
Andries Treurnicht’s extreme 
right wing Conservative 
Party, thus removing pressure 
on the government from the 
left and making it even more 
sensitive to the carping of the 
extreme right It was that 
carping which induced Presi- 
dent Botha to yield to right 
wing pressure within his own 
cabinet and sacrifice not only 
his Foreign Minister, but his 
own credibility. For if the 
South African President's 
promise that the new Na- 
tional Statutory Council is the 
"first step towards , 
institutionalised power 


may be the standard bearer of sharing" with the country's 
white moderates, but it is black majority means any- 


also, as its name implies a 
party of coalition, its size 
(still puny when compared to 
the National goliaths) ac- 
quired more through merger 
than natural growth. Co- 
alitions seldom make for 
happy families in govern- 
ment. Under the fiercer 
pressures exerted on those in 
opposition they often teeter 
precariously on the brink of 
divorce. 

Dr Slabbert was a unifying 
force within the PFP. His 
departure has left it rent 
between two opposing fac- 
tions, those who would make 
common cause with extra- 
parliamentary forces and 
those who beckon to the 
enlightened elements within 


thing, then Mr Pik Botha’s 
forecast is correct. If it does 
not then the Leader of the 
Oopposition should have 
been around to make him eat 
his words. 

The feet that Dr Slabbert 
chose this moment to cut and 
ran means that black mod- 
erates like Chief Butbelezi 
who were attracted by the 
new council have been left 
out on a precarious limb. It 
certainly means that pre- 
sented with a very real crisis 
in government, he not only 
failed to exploit it, but created 
one in his own ranks. 

Dr Slabbert's frustrations 
are understandable. South

Since when has sport been

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Thoughts that underlie that leak 


second-class citizens in the 
country of their birth. There 
are the estimated 400.000 
Jews who would like to leave 
the Soviet Union but who 
fear to apply to leave. Many 
of them have relatives living 
in Israel or the West. And 
there is Andrei Sakharov, 
member of the Soviet Acad- 
emy of Sciences, winner of 
the Nobel Peace Prize and 
human rights campaigner, 
who is still in exile in Gorky 
and cut off from the outside 
world 

Details of Dr Sakharov’s 
treatment over the past two 
years have jusL emerged. They 
fill a catalogue of enforced 
hospital stays, deliberately 
mismanaged medical care and 
force-feeding — and give the 
lie to any claim by the Soviet 
authorities to have acted 
humanely. 

Over the past eight years, 
“Free Shcharansky” became a 
familiar cry wherever official 
Soviet visitors travelled in the 
West Now Shcharansky is 
free. But the appeals must go 
on. In his name, in the name 
of Sakharov and the name of 
all those left behind 


From Sir Eric Sharp 
Sir. Your leader of February <5 
refers to the need for resolution 
of some still unanswered ques- 
tions about the Westland affair. 

No matter how fascinating - or 
boring - it might appear to the 
public to see politicians exploring 
almost obsessionaliy the mechan- 
ics of the leaking of the Solicitor 
General's letter and the pro- 
cedural practices of senior Civil 
Servants and their relations with 
ministers and each other, surely 
the central public interest is why 
the Solicitor General fell obliged 
to write bis letter in the first 
place. 

In seeking to concentrate on 
the leaking of the Solicitor 
General's letter and continuing to 
do so notwithstanding the 
explanations given by the Prime 
Minister, the two secretaries of 
state concerned and the report of 
the Secretary to the Cabinet; 
despite also the regrets expressed 
by the Prime Minister about the 
method of disclosure of - the 
Solicitor General's letter, those 
members of Parliament following 
this course need to explain their 
own motives. 

They have - perhaps delib- 
erately - failed to recognise 
publicly that it was the clear duty 
of the Prime Minister and the 
secretary of state responsible for 
the industry concerned to ensure 
with all the means at their 
disposal that Government state- 
ments did not mislead existing 
and potential investors in West- 
land. 

Those of us in industry who 
deal in hard commercial realities 
know that in prospectuses, and in 
situations such as those confront- 
ing the Westland board, every 
authoritative statement has to 
pass a meticulous scrutiny by 
lawyers and especially verifica- 
tion of all the facts cited. 

The facts had to be made 
known. The intention, therefore, 
of the Prime Minister and the 
then Secretary of State for Trade 
and Industry was irreproachable 
in the context of seeking that the 
Government did not mislead 
investors and that the public 
interest was safeguarded- The 
method of release to the public 
has already been regretted by the 
Prime Minister. 

To see parliamentary time and 
Government energies continuing 
to be wasted on what is becoming 
the wretched and irrelevant 
Westland affair should increas- 
ingly concern the public in the 
context of the urgent social and 
economic issues confronting the 
nation and requiring the un- 
divided attention of HM Govern- 
ment and her ministers. 

Yours faithfully,

From Mr D. C. Humphreys 
Sir. I was interested to see the let- 
ter in yesterday's Times I Feb- 
ruary 5) from Dr EdmunJ 
Marshall about the appearance of 
Civil Servants before select 
committees of fee House of 
Commons. 1 remember fee 
incident he describes very well, 
since it arose from evidence 
which the Hydrographer and 1 
(then an under-scc rotary in the 
Navy Department) had given to 
a previous session of fee Select 
Committee on Trade and In- 
dustry. 

Then, under close questioning 
from fee chairman. 1 had been 
obliged to admit that 1 was a 
member of a Cabinet Office 
committee of officials charged 
with examining 2 proposal feat 
the civil departments should 
contribute to fee cost of the RN 
Survey Fleet. 

For this concession I received a 
good deal of stick from the 
Cabinet Office, who prefer their 
role in these matters to remain 
obscure-, on fee other hand ’we 
later achieved temporary fame by- 
being re-broadcast live on The 
Week in Westminster as an 
example of fee overweening 
bureaucracy bowing fee knee to 
Parliament. 

Subsequent events were as Dr 
Marshall describes them. The full 
antique might of parliamentary 
authority was deployed 10 com- 
pel our attendance at the House 
and we all trooped down, about 
fifteen of us. under the command 
of fee Lord Privy Seal to account 
for our activities. 

The proceedings were indeed 
memorable. 1 cannot now recall, 
however, whether my colleagues 
and 1 were more impressed by 
our esteemed leader's cavalier 
altitude to facts and issues or by 
the 2 bsurd deference wife which 
he was treated by fee committee. 
Both were the source of mild 
hilarity in Whitehall for several 
weeks thereafter. 

In the end fee committee were 
able to escape from fee constitu- 
tional hook on which they had 
impaled themselves, but 1 do not 
think feat even they would claim 
that this particular session 
contributed much to the study of 
maritime safety on which they 
were engaged. 

The episode may have been 
useful to a degree as a reminder 
to all concerned of fee principle 
of ministerial responsibility, but I

From Mr Andrew Nash 
Sir, Your leader (February 6 ) 
about the boycott of fee new 
GCSE by fee National Associ- 
ation of Schoolmasters and the 
Union of Women Teachers and 
fee National Union of Teachers 
fails to recognise the massive 
upheaval feat fee proposed new 
exam represents or fee cbaotic 
state of preparation for it. 

For instance, although we are 
supposed to start teaching fee 
new courses this September, the 
Secondary Examinations Council 
has yet to approve any final 
official syllabuses. Further, such 
provisional syllabuses as are 
available indicate changes from 
the O-level approach which are 
fundamental and ultimately ami- 
academic. 

In English literature, for exam- 


for novels. Is this "English 
literature”? 

Simlarly, in English language 
internally assessed course work is 
to be compulsory. Yet every 
teacher knows that it is impos- 
sible to ensure that such work 
done outside fee classroom or 
exam room is not "helped" by 
parents, other pupils or commer- 
cial crib sheets. 

GCSE as currently proposed is 
a botched ■'mixed-ability” exam 
which has sold out on academic 
standards; and yet it will mean 
teachers spending a great deal of 
unproductive time trying to 
implement iL Of course the 
resulting frustration is being 
exploited, albeit cynically, by 
some militants amongst fee 
unions. 

The result will be yet more 
academic staff leaving the pro- 
fession, or at least the maintained 


pie, the detailed critical study of sector of iL Before he goes. Sir 


a literary text will be rendered 
impossible by fee new require- 
ment of six compulsory texts 
enforced by the new CSE-style 
course work. Indeed, the GCSE 
guidelines encourage instead such 
projects as conducting imaginary 
television interviews with charac- 
ters, inventing board games 
about books and drawing covers 


Keith must have the courage to 
admit feat he has been wrong 
and call a hair to fee academic 
chaos which GCSE is bringing.

Tory loyalties 

From the Chairman of United 
Biscuits 

Sir. The headline in The Times 
on Monday. “Tebbit calls for 
unity and loyalty to Mrs 
Thatcher", reflects the view of 
millions. The recent major storm 
in a tiny teacup is being 
magnified out of all proportion 
and fee lime has come for fee 
carping and cnucism to stop. 

Have we already forgotten 
what it was like before 1979 
when there were wage controls, 
price controls, dividend controls, 
exchange controls, and taxation 
of up to 98 per cent on income 
from savings? Have we already 
forgotten what has been achieved 
since then: inflation down to 5 
per cent or less, industry un- 
shackled from prices and in- 
comes controls and other 
centrally imposed restraints, 
trade unions brought within the 
law. direct taxation reduced and 
the investment income surcharge 
abolished, exchange control abol- 
ished ?

ON THIS DAY 


FEBRUARY 12 1866 


From Dr J. G. B. Thurston 
Sir. The article by Sally 
Brampton (February 5) highlights 
a very worrying trend m modem 
emergency medicine practice. 
Our association has become 
increasingly concerned about fee 
rise in violence to staff particu- 
larly at night. 

In my cvwt department at 
Queen Mary's Hospital. 
Rochampton. a far from 
"underprivileged” area, the 
following incidents have oc- 
curred: A sister was assaulted on 
New Years Eve and her arm 
broken: a lady psychiatrist was 
trapped and threatened by a 
patient wife a blunt weapon until 
disarmed: the waiting-room seats 
have had to be replaced by hard 
chairs which cannot be slashed: a 
cubicle has been fitted with 
shatterproof glass because it has 
been broken so frequently: the 
deportment was wrecked by a 
“gangland" fight; and a sister 
courageously and single-handed 
disarmed a patient who threat- 
ened a female radiographer with 
a knife. The sister who did this 
was incidentally the one whose 
arm was broken earlier by 
another patient and has rightly 
received a letter of commenda- 
tion from the hospital admin- 
istrator. 

Our district health amhoriiv 
cannot be blamed. The cuts thev 
have had to make by the DHSS 
through the regional health 
authority have been swingeing. 
The porters are not paid as 
security guards and although they 
help on a “Good Samaritan” 
basis in cases of observed assault, 
they are neither trained nor paid 
for this purpose. 

The nurses are almost entirely 
female and my six newly ap- 
pointed junior doctors all happen 
to be female and. therefore, less 
able to cope with physical 
violence. 

In emergency rooms in the 
Llnited States armed security 
guards are provided. Without 
wishing to make my department 
look like Heathrow Airport. 1 
must plead for money to be made 
available to the district health 
authority so that some form of 
security can be provided. This 
problem is comparatively mild in 
SWl 5. Do we have to wait until 
a real tragedy occurs? 

The unsung heroines are fee 
regular, daily, mostly female staiT 
who C3rn/ on feeir vital work 
throughout fee country with 
dedication and good humour. 
Yours faithfully, 

JOHN THURSTON. 

Hon Secretary. 


were quick to speculate as to 
whether the loss of the Chal- 
lenger might lead to fee termina- 
tion of fee manned space 
programme. Possibly there was a 
jubilant note in some quarters 
because of fee link with fee “Star 
Ware” programme. 

In fee United States no such 
speculation was reported. Instead 
the boundless confidence of fee 
United States took over and. as 
early as the memorial service at 


ourselves and our future? 

Ironically. I was recently re- 
minded of possibly the best 
rationale for man's drive to 
explore space which appeared in 
Britain before fee war. It was in 
H. G. Wells's novel and the 
brilliant British film version 
made in 1 936. Things To Come , 
that it is set out as a conversation 
between two key characters:- 

Passworfey: “Is there never to 


iitiie planeL.. Then fee planets 
about him, and at last out across 
immensity to fee stars. And 
when he has conquered all fee 
depths of space 2 nd all the 
mysteries of lime - still he will he

Who was the Peabody who has 
given hit name to blocks of flats in 
parti of London ? George Peabody 
1 1 795- 1MS9) was an American 
whose ancestors had emigrated 
from England in lbH5. His parents 


were poorhui he prospered to 
become a (coding merchant and 


financier in America. He settled in 
London in JfyJ7 which owes much 
to his philanthropy; his most 
considerable benefaction being an 
endowment for the provision of 
tenements for the working class 
/or u hom he had greiu 
admiration. 


THE PEABODY 
BENEFACTION 


The fullowing correspondence 
has been forwarded to us for 
publication: "London Jan 2d 
’‘Oendenicn. - When I made a 
donation of 150.000 for the benefit 
of the p>x>r of London in March 
1862. it was my intention, if my 
life was spared until my retire- 
ment from business and Provi- 
dence continued me in prosperity, 
to place in your hands, as trustees 
of the charity, a ftuther gift for 
the same object. . . Taking the 
joint capital of the two girts at a 
minimum of 250.000/, it will form 
a fund the operation of which is 
intended to be progressive in its 
usefulness as applied to the relief 
of the poor of London (so 
correctly defined in your recent 
report I, w ithout exclusion in 
consequence of religious belief or 
political hias. It will therefore act 
more powerfully in future genera- 
tions than in the preseni; it is 
intended to endure forever. A 
century in the history of London 
is but a brief period comparatively 
with the itfe of man. and should 
your successors continue the 
management of the charity as you 
have begun it, it is mv ardent 
hope and trust that within that 
period the annual receipts from 
rents for buildings of .this 
improved class may present such 
a return that there may not be e 
poor working man of good 
character in London who could 
not obtain comfortable and 
healthful lodgings for himself ana 
his family at a cost within his 


means. . . 

“You are fully authorized to use 
any portion of the fund in 
building lodginghouses for the 
labouring poor, as expressed in 
my former letter; but, as before 
many years it is to be apprehend- 
ed that desirable sites for such 
buildings may be difficult to 
obtain at moderate prices within 
the limits of the metropolis, in 
that event, it is my desire that ray 
trustees for the time being may 
seek out and secure et such rates 
as the state of the fund may 
warrant such freehold sites, with- 
in ten miles of the present Royal 
Exchange, as may appear eligible, 
both on account of salubrity of 
position and proximity to the 
great centres of labour and 
railroad accommodation, due re- 
gard being had to the probable 
burden of taxation. It may also be 
desirable to obtain from railroad 
companies the most economical 
arrangements procurable for the 
conveyance of working, people af 
slated hours to and from London 
at such moderate fares as will 
come within their means. 

"Comfortable and convenient 
houses are to be erected upon 
those sites for the exclusive 
accommodation of the honest and 
industrious poor of London, under 
such regulations and on such 
terms and conditions as my 
trustees may direct, subject only 
to the guiding principles laid 
down in respect to my former 
donation. 

"As dwellings in such sites may 
in some instances be remote from 
schools and other facilities for 
instruction, the trustees shall be 
at liberty, in such cases, should 
they consider it needful, to set 
apart space adjacent to the 
building and suitable for school - 
houses for the children of the 
families holding tenements. 

“In conclusion, looking to the 
object of this donation and to the 
large development in coming 
years of an arrangement designed 
to promote the physical, moral 
and social welfare of the deserving 
poor of the metropolis, I entertain 
a strong and earnest hope that the 
project will so commend itself to 
the sympathies and judgment of 
the inhabitants of London as to 
insure un their part that interest 
and co-operation which will 
secure to fiiture generations of the 
poor those comforts which, with 
the blessing of Providence, it Ls 
my object to bestow upon them. 
"With great respect and regard, 

I am, your humble servant.

Masons appointed to 
church inquiry 

By Clifford Longley RetigtousAfiiairs Correspondent 

Two Freemasons have 
been appointed to a special 
committee in the Church of 
England set up to investigate 
whether Christianity and Ma- 
sonry are compatible. The 
inquiry was demanded by the 
General Synod in 1985, since 
when the Methodist Church 
in Great Britain has officially 
warned its members against 
becoming Freemasons. 

In accordance with assur- 
ances given by the Archbish- 
op of Canterbury, Dr Robert 
Runcie, neither the chairman 
of the committee nor its 
secretary are Masons. The 
chairman will be Dr Margaret 
Hewitt, a prominent member 
of the General Synod and of 
the Church Union, and its 
secretary Mr Nigel Barnett, a 
member of the synod's secre- 
tarial 

The two Masons oh the 
committee are Dr Robert 
Hart, a member of the 
General Synod for Exeter, 
and the Dean of St Albans, 
the Very Rev Peter Moore, 
who has been conspicuous in 
defending Freemasonry pub- 


Brian Aherae, who died on 
February 10 in Florida at use 
age of 83, will be remem- 
bered as a British leading 
man of both stage and screen, 
who brought a gentle-man- 
nered charm to all his roles, 
notably those in which he 
played the inescapably attrac- 
tive cad. 

He had been popular on 
the London stage in the years 
following tire ' First world 
War, and appeared in a 
number of British sflenr and 
early sound films, before 
going in 1930 to America 
where he spent, substantially, 
the rest of hia career. 

He was bom at- King’s _ 
Norton. Worcestershire, on 
May 2, 1902. and made his 
first appearance on the stage 
at seven, in Fiafineile in 
Binmngbam. In 1913 he 
mflfte bis first London ap- 
pearance at the Garrick in 
Where the Raintxm Ends. 

:■ -After the war his, first big 
success was in White Cargo 
at the Playhouse in -1924, 
when he. played a young 
white Titan falling under the 
sped of a coloured temptress 
in a steamy tropical drama. . 

This ret him up for a . 
successful run of appearances 
in London for the next six. 
■years, but at the end of 1930 
he went to America and was 
thereafter seldom seen in this 
country. 

He made many successful 
stage appearances in New 
York and cm tour in particu- 
lar he was highly successful 
with the national company as 
Henry Higgins in My Fair 
Lady. 

■ But his qorn (essentially 
“British" - as the Americans 



Aherae in “J maf* 
saw it - got of ji b and manner 

piarlg Him a natural ~rawHL 

date for the English rates so : 
beloved of the HoBywoo&of 
the era. Thereafter a string of f 
films saw . him cast as the > 
American - ideal of the chanri- * 
ing Englishman, often in a- ; 
mildly vflteinous mode; . 

Among his forty .screen 
appearances were; notably, 
whal Every Woman Knows - , 
(1934) and Beloved Enemy 
(193 6) and in 1939 he 
received an Oscar nomina- ' 
lion as best supporting actor - 
for his performance as. the 
Emperor Maximilian in Juaf ' 
rez. 

Later parts included Kmg J: 
Arthur in Lancebtand Gmnr i

The committee will report 
to the standing committee of 
the General Synod, and in 
due course to the synod itself 
It is now inviting evidence 
from the public. It is under- 
stood that the English Grand 
Lodge will be presenting a 
case to the committee, as it 
did to the earlier Methodist 
inquiry. The lodge has ampli- 
fied its policy towards reli- 
gion in the last two years, to 
emphasize that it. is- not a 
rival creed and that it 
supports religion. 

Allhough Freemasonry 
among the clergy and bishops 
has been in continuous de-. 
Cline in the past few years, a 
substantial number . of "Ma- 
sons are also Anglican lay- 
men. Opposition ' to 
Freemasonry has come main- 
ly from Evangelical circles. 


Evidence should be sent to Mr 
Nigel Barnett, Church House; 
Dean’s Yard, Westminster, 
London, SWI, before April. 30.

Science report 


Improvfa^ a man’s fertility by 
the equivalent of wearing 
damp underpants is the basis 
of a new approach to male 
infertility that has been 
developed by American re- 
searchers. 

There are said to be 26 
babies who would not have 
been bora if their fathers had 
hot been prepared to wear a 
spectel outfit for coding the 
scrotum. 

Based on the principle that 
a liquid takes away beat as it 
evaporates, the specially de- 
signed underwear improves 
sperm quality by cooling tire 
testicles by two degrees 
Centigrade, according to Dr 
Adrian ZMgmotti, of the New 
York University School of 
Medicine. 

j In a paper presented to the 
American Urological Associa- 
tion he and hte colleagues 
have shown that in the most 
favourable circumstances 
more than SO per, cent of 
couples who have had an 
infertile marriage for two 
years or more are rewarded 


By Barry Shurlocfc 

by pregnancy after the male 
partner wears foe cooling 
device for at least 16 weeks. 

All the men were infertile 
for reasons which cwdd not 
be explained ,nr by such 
events as mumps, and many 
of them had had without 
success an operation to tie 
varicose veins in the scrotum, 
a surgical procedure for 
reducing the local tempera- 
ture. 

Bw mi iiing their sperm mi- 
croscopically enabled doctors 
to calculate what they called 
foe Motile Oval I«4w , which 
helps to identify those men 
who are likely to benefit most 
from the new freatmc**- 

The necessary apparatus, 
which involves a reservoir of 
water or water ami alcohol, fa 
produced by Repre-Med, of 
New York. The company was 
set up by Dr Zorgnio tti ami 
an engineer, Andrew Sealfbn, 
a farmer pattest who de- 
signed the hardware. Seaifoa 
says that the birth of hte 
young daughter is a direct 
result of foe device. 


to 


The effect of temperature 
on sperm quality has long 
been recognized. Doctors tend 
*- *ive homely advice such as 
up Y-fronts and cold- 
before bed. The 
advance pioneered by foe 
Americans is, however, the 
first to take a more active 
approach to coating. 

The British male infertility 
specialist, Dr Ann Jequter, of 
Que-i’s Medical Centre, 
Nottingham, pointed out that 
before individuals could pos- 
sibly benefit from the new 
treatment it would be neces- 
sary to establish that raised 
scrotal temperature was foe 
most likely cause of their 
problem. 

She also said that sperm 
quality is subject to large 
variations is normal men and 
farther research was neces- 
sary before the American 
could be vafidated. **lf 
you take a group of couples 
with oue year's infertility, 30 
to 40 per cent will be 
pregnant by foe end of the 
second year without any 
treatment at aB.’ 


Appointments 

Prince to be 
trustee of gallery 

The Prince of Wales has 
accepted an appointment as a 
trustee of the National Galleiy, 
Downing Street announced yes- 
terday (Charles Kneviti writes). 
Trustees are usually appointed 
on the recommendation of the. 
chairman, currently Mr Jacob 
Rothschild, and serve for a. 
term of seven years. 

The announcement comes 
just two weeks after the gallery 
appointed Mr Robert Venturi, 
from Philadelphia, to design an 
extension on the neighbouring 
Hampton site in Trafalgar 
Square. 

The Prince entered the pub- 
. lie debate about a previous 
design for the extension in 
1984 when he described a 
revised scheme as “a mon- 
strous carbuncle on the lace of 
a much-loved and elegant 
friend". 

The Prince has not yet seen 
the design submitted' by Mr 
Venturi in competition with 
four British and one other 
American architects, but he 
will be involved in detailed 
discussions of the scheme, 
thought likely to cost up to £25 
million, as it is built over the 
next few years. 

The gallery said yesterday 
that it was "deeply honoured" 
by (he news of the appointment, 
although the Prince has never 
paid an official visit to the 
gallery. The appointment is ■ 
being .seen by .some observers 
as settling any differences with 
the gallery over his blistering 
attack on the previous design. 
Biil the Prince does not get 
involved in projects without 
seeking advice, long consid- 
eration and a commitment to 
the task. 

The Prince replaces Lord 
Annan, the Iasi chairman, who 
retired in: June. 

Other appointments include: 
Sr Own Green to be a trustee 
of the Natural History Museum 
in succession to Sir Hugh 
Cassoo. 

Dr D.W. Dykes, aged 52, 


founded 55 years ago, played 
an important role hr prepar- 
ing the foundations for 
Israel's defence in its 1948 
war of Independence. 

A secretive man. hisn^ga-- 
•nizaiionai ability built the 
underground Haganab army 
into a potent force in the 
period, which ended in 
Britain’s retinquisbing hs 
mandate in Palestine: 

Bom in the Ukraine in 
1910, he was brought to 
'Palestine at the age of four 
and ran messages for the 
Jewish Self-Defence Forces 
during the Arab riots in 1921. 

. He was 14 when he became 
one of the organizers of the ; 
Ndar Ha-’oyed^. ; the. youth 
wing of -the Histadrut Labour 
movement, and in 1930 be 
founded Kibbutz Na’an in 
the Judean foothills and It 
became his home .for. the rest 
of his life. 

His maiit interest was the 
Noar Ha’oved and hte work 
las an organizer with it 
■brought him to the notice of 
“David Ben-Gurion who in 
1935 chose him as a delegate 
for the 18th.Ztontet Congress 
in Lucerne, a trip he used as 
cover foe an attempt to 
smuggle weapons into Pales- 
tine from Antwerp. . - 

His Kibbutz became a 
Haganah aims workshop and 
in 1941 he. joined Central 
Command and was given the 
job of drawing up a plan of 
last-ditch defence in case 
.Rommel's Afrika Corps . 
reached Palestine. 

With foe end of the Second 
World War he became one of 
the main organizers of under- 
ground opposition to Britain' 
as political commander of the 
Haganah. 


But Ben^urioii mistrusted 
him Amt forming, a breakaway 
political party and a fortnight 
before independence he was 
-dismissed, only to be rein- 
stated after six dayvfotiow- , 
ing a revolt in his favour , by '' 
the ~ Haganah High Cdnt-' n,< 

nwnil 

. Nevertheless, he was grad-'-* 
ually eased out df any r 
meaningful role and fineUy-'' 1 
resigned in 1948 to devote - ' 
himself to his party, Ahdut : 
Ha’avoda, a left- wing, anti-,. 
Stalinist group. 

It was not until Ben-' 
Gurion resigned in 1963 that* 
he agreed to join the govern- ‘ 
ment of. Lew Eshkol. first as 
Minister without Portfolio 
mid then as Minister of 
Information... 1 

His return to the centre of 
natiahal politics paved the' ; 
way ' for the merger of left- 
wing parties into the present 
Israeli Labour Party. 

After the six-day war in; 
4967 be became the Labour 
Party’s main architect oT 
policy in the ocogned territo- 
ries. His scheme included the . 
idea of territorial compro- 
mise as part of any prace' 
agreement with Jordan. 

At foe same time be mgecL 
settlement of foose areas'*' 
which were considered to be r . 
an essential part of the State; 
of Israel after an eventual 
peace treaty. 

These ideas remain to this -T 
day as the negotiating posi- 
tion of the Labour Party -. 
under Mr Shimon Peres. 

In 1980 he withdrew from 
national politics, when Mr 
Peres, the protege of Ben- 
Gurion, became . undisputed; 
leader of the party. Since 
then he had devoted his time' 
to his Kibbutz and to the. 
Kibbutz movement's edoca^ 
tional centre.

Fall of a 
Roman 
empire 

Franco Rossi’s Quo Vadts 
(Channel 4) is a dark, 
sumptuous and intelligent 

* piece of work that has beer, 
destroyed bybad production. 

Adapted from the novel by 
Henryk Sienkiewicz. and set 
during the last years of 
Nero’s chaotic and dissolute 
reign, its story gives us the 
pattern of the epic Christian 
spectacular a patriotic Ro- 
man commander is drawn to 
Christ through the transfig- 
uring power of love; a mad, 
pagan Emperor is set impla- 
cably against the new faith, 
determined to stamp it out 
by fire, torture and other 
elaborate brutalities; the mar- 
tyred apostle, St Peter, rallies 
the faithful, his voice thick 
with holy rhetoric, as they 

* stand united against persecu- 
tion and die lions. 

In previous versions, the 
story has been a gutsy 
melodrama, full of set-piece 
extravagance, thunderously 
daft dialogue and greasepaint 
decadence. Rossi has at- 
tempted something more 
thoughtful and psychological- 
ly ambitious. 


David Robinson reports on the Rotterdam film festival 
where Tetrospectives have played a leading role 



life to the new 



Falling only a month before the 
nrsi major competitive festival of 
' he JW in West Berlin, the 
Rotterdam programme is inevita- 
bly m lame pan a reprise of the 
autumn festivals: many of the 
•urns, for instance, have already 
been seen in the London Film 
Festival last November. Rotter- 
dam however scores with its style 
■ ^^ntation; and particularly 
in backing up new films with 
appropriate and illuminating 
retrospectives. 

Fire Festival, for example, 
figured in Rotterdam, as it has at 
several festivals including Lon- 
don; but here it was instructively 
placed in context, with showings 
of earlier works by the same 
Mitsuo Yanagimachi, 
who first came to attention with a 
documentary on Shinjuku bike- 
boys. God Speed You Black 
Emperor. The independent-mind- 
ed hero of Fire Festival, with his 
final, desperate act of suicide and 
murder, can now clearly be seen 
as related to the methodical young 
avenger of A Nineteen- Year-Old's 
Plan* and the despairing hero of A 
Farewell to the Land. 

In the same way The Coca-Cola 
Kid was supported by a compre- 
hensive retrospective of the work 
of its Yugoslav director Dusan 
Makaveyev, including Innocence 
Unprotected and W.R. - Myster- 
ies of the Organism-, and Stephen 
Frears's now rarely-seen Gumshoe 
(1971) was revived as a compan- 
ion-piece to his new My Beautiful 
Laundrette. Rotterdam is excep- 
tional among festivals in this 
effort to exhibit films not as an 
ephemeral harvest but in a critical 
and historical context 
Peter Greenaway's A Zed and 
Two Noughts provided a particu- 
larly appropriate opening artrac- 


Francotse Fabian 

The hero, Marcus of 
Vinicius, is not the usual 
beefcake slob and. behind his. 
. neat patrician beard, be looks 
courtly and alert: Lygia, the 
woman he loves, is a shrewd 
and tenacious idealist quite 
unlike the glacial sexpot of 
the De Mille tradition: the 
Nero of Klaus Maria 
Brandauer isn’t some camp 
pantomime villain but a 
quick-witted psychopath with 
a Hitlerian passion for the 
immortality of Great Art 

Played out in a Rome that 
owes more to Fellini and the 
Sat vr icon than MGM or 
Twentieth Century Fox, this 
could have been a grave and 
frightening treatment of the 
story, underpinned by a 
convincing political hysteria 
3nd violence. But although 
this three-part series was 
made in English, the actors 
■ are dubbed and, while we 
watch an opulent and subtly- 
drawn film, we hear an 
excruciating radio play. 

On screen, and in the TV 
Times , Brandauer, Frederic 
Forrest (Petronius) and Marie 
Therese Relin (Lygia) get star 
billing, with support from 
Max von Sydow and Fran- 
coise Fabian, in fact, their 
G performances are bulldozed 
back into B-movie cliche by 
some of the worst voice 
artists I have ever heard. 
Forrest looks 30 but sounds 
60, with a gravelly, sedated 
voice; Maria Therese has the 
cute American vowels of one 
of those factory-bred Dynasty 
starlets; Brandauer talks 
snooty and peculiar like 
someone doing a bad Orsino 
at Stratford. Ignore those 
impressive credits: Quo V'adis 
is the work of a firm called 
Associated Recording Artists.

lion. Not only is it an Anglo- 
Duich co-production, but it has 
the special local appeal of being 
largely shoi in Rotterdam Zoo" 
The first reviews from this Dutch 
premiere were as mixed as the 
London reactions: De Volkskrant 
found the film “original'' and 
“playful”, but IVoi/iv’s headline 
summed it up as “beautiful, 
arrogant, cold and childish". 

Rotterdam's major catch. 
Krzysztof Kieslowski’s No End, 
had been refused by the cautious 
Polish authorities to several previ- 
ous festivals, especially in the 
United States. Rotterdam's radical 
sympathies were perhaps consid- 
ered a guarantee that the film 
would not be interpreted in any 
hostile fashion. Like the new 
Polish films shown at the Nation- 
al Film Theatre last autumn. A7> 
End demonstrates that Polish 
film-makers refuse to be stifled in 
the aftermath of the damp-down 
on Solidarity, even if their 
message must sometimes emerge 
out of mists and ambivalence. 

Kieslowski, after a series of 
lough and frequently censored 
documentaries, had an interna- 
tional success in 1979 with 
Camera Buff, a brilliant comic 
expose of the ideology and 
fallacies of “socialist realism". 
Now. he says, the time for 
comedy is past: though not 
lacking in irony. No End is an un- 
compromisingly dark film. The 
hero is dead as a result of a road 
accident: the film opens on the 
day of bis funeraL and. though in 
his neat black coffin-suit* he 
remains a curious observer of 
what goes on during the rest of 
the film, his presence is unnoticed 
by his nearest and dearest. 

The film is set in 1 982. Antoni 
(significantly plaved by Jerzv 


Radziwilowicz. the hero of 
Watda's Man of Marble and Man 
of Iron) was in life a lawyer who 
specialized in defending people 
charged with political offences. 
His widow, devastated by his 
death, forces herself, against her 
inclinations, to assist in the case 
he was prepan ng at the time - the 
defence of a workman accused of 
planning an illegal strike. 

In the law courts, as among the 
accused man's mends and collab- 
orators. she finds no villains — 
only people struggling io discover 
solutions to the difficult equation 
of freedom, discipline, dignity, 
compromise. She can find neither 
solution to the equation nor 
consolation for her personal loss: 
she ends up joining her husband 
io death, leaving behind a bright, 
brave young son as the single 
gleam of future optimism. 

The dry wit of Camera Buff 
hardly anticipates the powerful 
emotional charge of this film, 
experienced most infectiously in a 
scene where ihc young son finds 
himself at what appears to be the 
grave of a Gdansk worker-victim. 
Nor have many films so acutely 
described the pam of bereave- 
ment 

With the inauguration by the 
television station VPRO of an 
annual award for the best Dutch 
film, Rotterdam offers an oppor- 
tunity to review the national 
annual production. For so small a 
language market, an output of 
some 15 films in a year is 
remarkable: and few of them fail 
below passable commercial stan- 
dards. The biggest international 
box-office success of 1985 was 
Paul Verhoeven's extravagantly 
silly tale of the lusty and lustful 
Dark Ages. Flesh and Blood. Two

both seemingly based on fact. 

Adjudged the year's best film. 
Pervola written, produced and 
directed by Orlow Seunke, dem-

Seunke (whose prize-winning first 
film .-I Taste of H ater has already 
been seen in this country) creates 
his own worlds — in this case an 
eerie, primitive. war-torn arctic 
region which might be in the past 
or the future. Seunke is so 
persuasive that we never question 
the odd chance that results in two 
middle-aged Dutch brothers jour- 
neying by horse-sledge, bearing 
the corpse of the father for w hose 


love and legacy they have been

and conviction of the narrative is

Sad times for Sadler’s Weils 


The Swedish Radio Sympho- 
ny Orchestra is typical of the 
workmanlike ensembles 
which keep broadcasting or- 
ganizations throughout the 
world supplied with depend- 
able performances for all 
seasons; They are“medium” 
orchestras in more than one 
sense: playing mostly to 
microphone encourages a 
safety-first attitude . Add 
touch of fatigue — in f 1 days 
the orchestra has visited 10 
British cities - and the 
prospects for Mahler's First 
Symphony seemed unpromis- 
ing. 

But the orchestra's princi- 
pal conductor is that young 
Finnish firebrand Esa-Pekka 
Salonen whose own coltish 
energy seemed to invigorate 
his players, at least fitfully. 
Salonen does not yet pace 
long paragraphs judiciously: 
passages such as the approach 
to the finale's exultant coda 
tended to spurt suddenly . He 
might have pointed the irony 
of the third movement's 
banal pastiche more sharply, 
too. 

Yet in the Landler one 
could admire unreservedly 
the raw, heavy-bowed string 
quality, and the violins' G- 
string ardour in the finale 
was both lyrical and well- 
trained. He needs more 
confidence to carry through 
those quintessential 
Mahlerian subito pianissimo 
effects. 

The orchestra had opened 
with modem Swedish music: 
lngvar Lidholm's Greetings 
from an Old World, written 
for the bicentenary of the 
United States. Judging by the 
stylistic sway from Penderec- 
ki-style orchestral violence to 
conventional chromaticism, 
the composer has rather 
ambivalent feelings about 
pioneers and new worlds. 
The most sinking feature was 
the quotation, much in Berg 
Violin Concerto fashion, of 
Heinrich Isaac's Innsbruck, 
ich muss dich lassen. The 
beautiful old love-song was 
first heard distorted and 
inverted on low woodwind, 
then its contours became the 
basis for a remarkable cello 
cadenza, before Isaac's origi- 
nal harmony blazed trium- 
phant (more or less) in brass- 
chorale form. 

It was difficult to recognize 
the soloist in a hard-driven, 
unbending account of 
Beethoven’s Third Piano 
Concerto as the same 
Mitsuko Uchida who is 
currently tinkling so tasteful- 
ly through a Mozart concerto 
cycle. I could not warm to 
her new stridency, but it 
certainly revealed an unex- 
pected side to her musician- 
ship. 

Richard Morrison 


The immediate plight of 
Sadler’s Wells Theatre is so 
grave that any expedient to 
help seems desirable. But the 
solution proposed by the Arts 
Council to be discussed 
between the interested parties 
on Friday, fudges the issue 
and seems likely in the long 
run to do more harm than 
good. 

The suggestion is to give 
extra money to three leading 
subsidised dance companies 
which regularly use the Wells 
Tor Loudon seasons. They 
would pass it on to the 
theatre in the form of a 
higher rent That would 
provide some benefit to 
Sadler's Wells Royal Ballet. 
London Contemporary Dance 
Theatre and Ballet Rambert, 
and won Id give Sadler's 
Wells Theatre a breathing 
space. 

But it immediately intro- 
duces a new problem in place 
of the one it solves. Inevitably 
rents for other companies 
would also be driven up. The 
high cost of travel, accommo- 
dation, subsistence and or- 
chestras already makes it 
difficult for companies from 
abroad to visit London. High- 
er rents for tbe only theatre 
regularly available for dance 



and opera would make mat- 
ters worse. 

By undermining one of the 
most important and valuable 
functions of Sadler's Wells, 
giving some extra money (but 
less than it needs) via this 
roundabout route woold thus 
diminish the theatre's value. 
And in doing so it would push 
up ticket prices and thus 
destroy another of the func- 
tions Sadler's Wells Theatre 
has always served of attract- 
ing audiences who cannot 
afford Covent Garden prices 
or are put off by fears of the 
grand opera house atmo- 
sphere. 

This looks like a classic 
case of jumping out of the 
frying pan into the fire, and 


all for the sake of an aliened 
principle which the public 
perceives as invalid. For 
years tbe Arts Council ha* 
poured money into theatrical 
bricks and mortar, carefully 
building up a circuit of 
regional theatres (with 
Sadler's Wells as one of its 
bases) able' to receive the 
national touring companies. 
That programme has ended 
but the Arts Council is now in 
the very act of taking over 
responsibility for the South 
Bank concert halts — none of 
which has a resident compa- 
ny. In those rircum stances.

Citizens’, Glasgow 


With more than two hundred 
plays and libretti to his name, 
a complete revival of 
Goldoni's work would take 
the Citizens' some time yet. 
This is. however, their sixth 
Goldoni production in recent 
years, each one translated by 
Robert David MacDonaid. It 
is a charismatic combination 
of the sweet tooth that 
apparently once had the 
playwright arrested for smug- 
gling chocolate and the per- 
ceptive genius that led to him 
being hailed by Voltaire. 

MacDonald's production 
of H »r to amico is transport- 
ed to late nineteenth-century 
Germany, where duty, loyalty 
and honour sent men into a 
rigid frenzy of principle. Here 
the plot — never the weighti- 
est element with Goldoni — 
fits the cliches like a glove. 

MacDonald approaches the 
comic possibilities for satiri- 
cal developments of stock 
situations with a measured 
tread . The atmosphere is 
established in a long musical 
prologue where the characters 
move somnambulantly be- 
hind gauze on Kenny Miller’s 
beautiful drawing-room set, 
festooned with lace and dust- 
sheets and flanked by obe- 
lisks as rigid as the flesh-and- 
blood pillars of society 
beneath them. 


These characters go on to 
declaim their feelings and 
dilemmas studiously, devel- 
oping satire of theatrical 
sentimentality into a con- 
trolled and sophisticated ri- 
diculousness that never runs 
into com plete ca ricat u re. 
From behind the sinking of 
attitudes and spoof literary 
heroics (“kill me with this 
paper knife!”) emerges a clear 
sense of the misguided priori- 
ties of a real section of 
society dominated by proper- 
ty and propriety. “Mein 
Schatz”. whispers Clara's mi- 
serly rich father tenderly to 
his gold — a neat linguistic 
joke in MacDonald's dear 
translation that ptoints out 
the central confusion of 
values. 

The knife-edge between 
realism and parodied melo- 
drama that the production 
treads is difficult to sustain 
thoughout: Jonathan Phillips 
though brings a com plex 
blend of self-aware ridicu- 
lousness. pomp and real 
naivety to the valiant 
Florindo. while beautiful tim- 
ing comes from Giles 
Havergal as a delight fully 
funny, cantankerous old mi- 
ser and Rupert Farley as a 
camp version of the omni- 
scient and anecdotal servant. 

It is a production whose 
pointed humour takes us far 
from any picture of 
Goldoni's satire as harmlessly 
benevolent. .

Bass, which owns 65 per

Rawlings, will have a 50 per

while Whitbread and Allied- 
Lyons will each have 25 per

The combined assets are 


valued at about £65 million,

Whitbread to create a strong 
force in the highly competi- 
tive soft drinks business and 
to give our leading brands the

Bass will be in control of 
the day-to-day management 
of the new company and Mr 
Ken Richards, one of its 
directors, will remain chair- 
man of Britannia Soft

for Canada Dry and Rawlings

In December Cadbury 
Schweppes and Coca-Cola

As a result of this the 
franchise agreement between 
Pepsi-Cola and Schweppes

Reserve will take a cautious 
stance, opting to continue 
present policies But there is 
clearly internal dissension on 
the 12-member committee.

credit policy. 

He has been joined on the i 
board by two new Reagan 
appointees. Mr Wayne An-

Talks on 
tunnel 
land start 

By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent 

The Anglo-French treaty 
for the building of the 
Channel tunnel is to be 
signed in Canterbury today. 

Channel Tunnel Group, 
which is to build the £2 
billion link, is offering to buy 
land from owners affected by 
the British end of the project. 

The consortium, whose 
scheme has been approved by 
both Governments, has ap- 
pointed Montagu Evans, the 
chartered surveyors, to start 
negotations for the purchase 
of the necessary land. 

The firm is asking land- 
owners to sell their interests 
at market value ahead of any 
compulsory purchase proce- 
dures which may be needed 
to accommodate the British 
terminaL 

Special arrangements are 
being made for householders 
in the villages of Newington, 
Peene and Frogholt in Kent, 
who will be the most affected 
by the tunn el- CTG will buy 
their properties at the open 
market value which would 
have applied without the 
terminal. 

The Government intends 
to introduce the Bill in the 
spring. Its passage through 
both Houses is expected to 
take a year and Royal Assent 
is expected in the summer of 
1987. 


With the possible exception of 
British Telecom, no British public 
company without an interlocking 
structure of a golden share is 
immune from a takeover bid. Bulk 
is no longer a barrier and the 
financing packages available, es- 
pecially from American banks 
whose focus has shifted from debt- 
ridden governments and who reckon 
they are on the Federal Reserve 
Board's protected species list, make 
it feasible for predators to swallow 
prey* several times their own size. 
Thus we have Hanson's horns 
locked with Imperial's and Argyll 
tilting at Distillers, with the white 
knight, Guinness, also in the lists. 
The stock market loves the spectacle 
which they are being paid lavishly to 
attend. The FT equity index soars in 
appreciation. 

Can it last? The pace of the 
bidding and the roar of this prize- 
winning bull market are reminiscent 
of 1968, a year in which the FT- All 
Share index rose 43 per cent Then 
as now, I am reminded by Alastair 
Ross Goobey of James Cape!, the 
belief was that in a pool of piranhas, 
no share was likely to remain for 
long below the current market value 
of the assets underlying it without 
attracting a bid. 

In January, 1968, Courtaulds 
made three bids; Schweppes bid for 
Typhoo; BMH merged with Ley- 
land; National Provincial and West- 
minster decided to merge; Martins 
Bank confessed it was having 
“talks”; Granada bought Robinson 
Rentals. In the first week of 
February Viyella bid fen* English 
Sewing Cotton, EMI for Associated 
British Picture, Lucas for Simms 
Motor and Bass for William 
Hancock. It is dulling to note that 
of the bidders in that list, only two 
— Bass and Granada — have not at 
one time or another in the 
intervening years given their 
shareholders nightmares. 

The strength of the bull market 
that followed the devaluation of the 
pound in 1967 can also be gauged 
by the rise in price/earnings ratios 
between November 1966 and Janu- 
ary 1968. that is before the 43 per 
cent rise in the market Take 12 
glittering names of the time: 


Bo water moved out from 13.9 to 
16.7; Hawker Siddeley from 12.1 to 
15.4; Rolls-Royce from 14.1 to 15.1; 
UDS from 13.8 to 14; Vickers 
slipped marginally from an elevated 

20.7 to 20.6; Woolworth moved 
from 13.7 to 15.7; Boots from 14.1 to 
23.8; Dunlop from 13.3 to 20.5; 
EMI from 10.9 to 23.1; GEC from 

10.7 to 23.8; ICI from 13.3 to 23.6; 
and Plessey from 12.6 to 23.9. 

Again the list sends a cold shiver 
through the cheque book. Of these 
12 high-fliers no fewer than six — 
Rolls-Royce, UDS, Vickers, Wool- 
worth, Dunlop, and EMI — have 
either been taken over when in dire 
difflculities, were refinanced or went 
bust. How many of today's cor- 
porate colossi will suffer the same , 
malign fate in the next 18 years? 

If you are a believer in the 
price/book value rating, you may 
already know that of the 30 shares 
in the FT equity index only four — 
Blue Circle, BP, 1CT and National 
Westminster — are selling at below 
their net asset values. It is no doubt 
true that some published asset 
values are understatements of the 
real position: in a phase of much 
lower inflation than ruled in the 
1970s the discrepancy between 
between true underlying asset values 
and balance sheet values is bound to 
be much less. The name of the 
takeover game in Britain at present 
is “Brands”. The bidders are paying 
high prices for the franchises that 
they acknowledge it would take 
them years to create. 

The moral of this “Where are they 
now T* exercise is admirably 
summed up by Alastair Ross 
Goobey, a name always to conjure 
with wherever equities are men- 
tioned: 

“While it is perfectly possible for 
there to be another leg to the bull 
market, the advance would probably 
not be sustainable. We clearly have 
not reached the ultra-high multiple 
stage of 1968, but then in 1968 Con- 
sols were yielding 7.1 per cent. And 
it must not be forgotten that the real 
level of equity prices reached at the 
end of 1968 has never been 
matched. Caution remains the 
watchword.” 



Game and set to the Bank 


Petrosian, the great Soviet chess 
master, used to straighten his tie just 
before administering the coup de 
grace in matches. Presumably, the 
campaign managers of the gilt 
market, over at the Bank of 
England, make equally effacing 
gestures after victories over market 
sentiment All the signs yesterday 
pointed towards whatever passes for 
a ritualized description of success 
among the authorities, as they 
prepared to accept tenders for the 
new tap. Treasury 10 per cent 1993, 
today. 

Downpayment is £20 per cent 
which is not exactly a huge amount 
The consensus view among traders 
is that the small amount of cash re- 
quired up from ought to ensure a 
sell-out at one minute past 10 this 
morning. Will the foreigner be in 
there heavily, lured by the pull of a 
tasty 11.3 per cent yield? 

On the face of it the answer must 
be “yes”. Sterling was firm yes- 
terday, climbing to $1.41 a gains t the 
dollar, and showing some rejative 
strength on the trade-weighted index 

The Bank's activities on the 
London money markets may or may 


not indicate that the situation 
yesterday was considerably less rosy 
than the casual observer might have 
gathered. Both three-month and 
one-month interbank rates were 
unchanged at around 12 % per cent, 
fuelling the stability myth, but 
overnight rates soared to dose on 25 
per cent The reason for this is quite 
simple. Against a money market 
shortage of £650 million, the Bank 
deliberately provided assistance of 
just £347 million via bill purchases, 
and that comparatively casually, 
while late assistance totalled just 
£155 million. The help left the 
market short by about £150 million, 
witness the firmness of overnight 
rates. The aim may be to keep 
whatever cash has been attracted 
into London firmly locked into 
sterling, irrespective of oil price 
trends, until the tap has been 
successfully sold. 

The pound has undoubtedly 
become more resilient, in particular 
to news of lower oil prices. 
According to Ian Harwood, econo- 
mist at Rowe & Pitman, this is a 
logical development after the events 
of the past few weeks.

Grand Metropolitan’s rev-

Even though Grand Met is 
over the worst, it still wants

Nearer home, the equally 
mature businesses of beer

Commodities Review 


Record profits and increased dividend 

I am pleased to report record profits For the third 
consecutive year. The profit on ordinary activities before 
taxation for the year ended 30th September, 1935 was 
£1.750,799 compared with £1595,759 in 1984. 

A further contribution to the profit was made by the sale 
of part of our worked out clay pit at Himley. which resulted in 
the profit after tax being £1,349.050. Last year the profit after 
tax was £1,087.196. 

The Directors recommend that a final dividend be paid of 
18 V 2 % which, with the interim dividend ot 9%. will total 
2 7Vi % for the year compared wrth 25% last year. 

The year's achievements 

Ail three works improved their performance over last year 
with Kingsbury, in particular, starting to make a consider- 
able contribution to profits following the successful 
introduction of .its new brickmaking plant dunng the 
summer of 1985. Natural gas has now been installed at all 
our works, the last, at Hartlebury, having been connected in 
July. The impact of this on the profitability of the Hartlebury 
works will take effect in the next financial year. 

The future 

Wte have entered the current year with confidence. The 
new factory under construction at Hartlebury is scheduled 
for completion in the summer of 1986. Th/s works will be 
equipped with the latest automated machinery and tunnel 
kiln and will increase substantially our facing brick 
production for the housing market 

The improvements to production facilities already 
reported, together with planned additions to our product 
range of pavers and special shaped bricks, will ensure that 
we are well placed for the future. These changes should all 
start to make a positive contribution in the current year and 
help to defray the anticipated higher interest charges 
incurred by our increased borrowing and commissioning 
costs of the new Hartlebury factory which will constitute a 
major development for the Company. 

The report and Accounts were adopted.

The drinks world is currently ruled by 
international giants. 

It’s a sobering thought that two thirds of 
the whisky sold around the world is not Scotch 
whisky. 

It is Canadian whisky. American whiskey. 
Even Japanese whisky. 

So if Britain is to compete in the future, 
strong measures are called for now. 

At Guinness, we believe the merger with 
Distillers will give Britain the strength it needs 
in the international arena. 

Our new group will manage an arsenal of 
world famous brands. 

And our combined strength will put us 
into the big league with the likes of Seagram 
and Suntory. 

But this merger is not just about muscle. 

It has a great deal to do with the special 
skills required to persuade new whisky drinkers 
in America, Japan and Europe to switch to 
Scotch whisky. 

At Guinness, we have proven flair for 
advertising and brand development 

We will commit this talent to increasing 
sales worldwide. 

And increased sales mean new jobs. 

Significantly, an increase in Distillers’ sales 
of Scotch whisky of just 2% could get a distillery 
in Scotland working again. 

Together, Distillers and Guinness will be 
good for exports. 

Good for jobs. And good for Britain. 

We urge you to support our bid.

FOOTBALL: FORMER CHAIRMAN MUST PRESENT HIS PACKAGE IN 21 DAYS 


win 


ATHLETICS 


yet another 
dramatic stay 
of execution 


, e Swansea yesterday won a 
‘Uriher six weeks' stay of 
execution against the wind- 
jng-up order brought by the 
inland Revenue, The strug- 
gbng third division dub were 
granted that period by Mr 
Justice Harman in the High 
^ourt. and Douglas 
bnarpe,the former chairman, 
who is leading the rescue 
Package, must present ..his 
scheme in 21 (fays. 

TTie judge granted the 
extension • of the order, 
brought by the Inland Reve- 
nue because of £102.000 back 
taxes, after Sharpe's counsel 
gave two undertakings; that 
Sharpe would make £25,000 
available to the Official 
Receiver, who is r unning the 
club, within seven days, «nrt 
that he and four other 
directors would be indemni- 
fied for certain cash amounts. 
Sharpe now has. three weeks 
in which to organize his 
scheme for . saving the club 
and it will then be voted 
upon by . outstanding credi- 
tors. 

Jeffrey Payne, the special 
manager appointed to work 
under the supervision of Mr 
James Pope, the Official 
Receiver,, told the court: 
"‘There has been substantial 
progress and the- applicant is 
almost in a position to 
launch, a formal scheme." 
David Richards, Sharpe's 


counsel said later "The 
difficulties are with the credi- 
tors, who have the option of 
Voting cbwn the scheme. If 
there are sufficient of them in 
number and 'Strength then it 
will not get through. The 
scheme stiff needs aH the 
support it can get" 

"Things are looking much 
better than they have for a 
while," said Sharpe, who 
wants to appoint a general 
manager and personally have 

a greater say m clnb matters 
if- his rescue ■ parlragp is 
approved. • 

It was .Sharpe's suhh ap- 
pearance in court in his tnd 
to save the 86-year-old diib, 
and the third ‘ tim e the 
liquidation order had been 
adjourned after Mr Justice 
Harman had originally ap- 
proved the winding-up on 
December 20. 

Sharpe added^I think we 
have today convinced the 
judge ihat we have -got 
something concrete to put 
before him and I hope we can 
get .this scheme off the 
ground. But we are stHI 
looking for more cash and 
support." The former Swan- 
sea c hairman is hoping that 
more first division dubs will 
copy . Manchester .United's 
recent example. Their visit to 
the Vetch field produced 
handsome . gate- receipts - for 
the Welsh dub.

Rangers, who readied the 
final of the FA Cup in 1982, 
must make full use of their 
substantial home advantage if 
they are to return to Wembley. 
They cannot real i stically expect 
to do so if they travel to

without a comfortable cushion. 


AC Milan 
taken 
over by TV 
tycoon 

Milan (AP) - AC Milan, the. 
Italian first division club for 
which the England inter- 
nationals Ray Wilkins and 
Marie Hateley play, has been 
taken over by an Italian 
television tycoon, Silvio 
Beriuscoui. 

The deal has come in lime to 
avert possible bankruptcy 
proceedings. Sources at the 
dub reported that Fminvest, 
Signor Berlusconi's holding 
company, has bought SI per 
cent of Milan's capital with a 
bid of 6.3 billion lire laboui 
£2.75 million). 

SignorBcrlusconi has also 
agreed to pay the club's debts, 
believed to amount to several 
billion lire. 

Those debts are known to 
include substantial outstanding 
instalments on the transfer fees 
of Wilkins and Hateley, owed 1 
respectively to Manchester 
United and Portsmouth, their 
former English dubs. Milan's 
other players include Paolo 
Rossi, the Italian forward, who 
was bought from Ju vent us last 
summer. 

Signor Berlusconi, who runs 
Italy's largest private television 
network and has recently and 
controversially been granted 
control of a new fifth channel 
in France, has long been 
negotiating the takeover, which 
he said was the fulfilment of a 
childhood dream. Sources said 
that his younger brother, Paolo 
Berlusconi, is likely to be 
appointed the dub's president 
in succession to Giuseppe 
Farina, whose resignation led 
to the deal. 

In the past few days Milan 
supporters had staged 
demonstrations outside the 
team headquarters urging Si- 
gnor Berlusconi to salvage the 
dub. 

English youth

Jones gets offer 
to defend title 
in half marathon 

By Pat Butcher, Athletics Correspondent 


Steve Jones, who ms one 
second away from the marathon 
world best with his 2 hr 7 min 
13 see in Chicago last autumn, 
is befog raged to defend his 
AAA tme in the half marathon 
this year in the race to ran that 
distance inside an boor. 

Jones won the hair marathon 
title in Birmingham tort sum- 
mer in 61 min 14 sec, then a 
world best; bat a month later 
Mark Carp: of the United 
States, broke 61 min for the 
first time, with 60 mia 55 sec. 
Nick Rose fo third (dace eves 
relieved Jones of a British best, 
with 61 min 3 sec. 

The appearance money In- 
centive for Jones to defend this 
year has yet to be worked out, 
according to the organisers, 
but the AAA half marathon on 
Jnne 8 has been incorporated 
into the Great North Run. and 
Pearl Assurance, who are so 
pleased with their sponsorship 
of other events, including the 
national indoor championships 
two weeks ago, have pm ap 
£200.000 for the next three 
years. 

So the possibility of the 
fastest half marathon in Britain 
has been allied to the certainty 
that the race between New- 
castle and Sooth Shields will be 
(be biggest participation event 
in the cotmory. Almost 24,000 
finis bed last year's race, com- 
pared to the 16,154 wbe 
completed the London Mara- 
thon fo 1985. 

Brendan Foster, the UK and 
world record holder and Olym- 


pic medal winner, who was 
most responsible for galvaniz- 
ing the north-east of England 
into a centre for both elite and 
popolar athletics, was also the 
inspiration for beginning the 
Great North Ran, after seeing 
the 50,000-stroag ftm-ran fo 
New Zealand called Bay to 
Breakers. 

Foster was in London yes- 
terday to announce this year's 

Pearl Assurance half marathon 

series of six events, which win 
culminate on his own doorstep. 
Foster said that Jones was a 
likely participant on Jane 8. 
and haring pointed out that, 
since its inception fo 1981 the 
race had already attracted four 
of the six Los Angeles Olympic 
marathon winners in 

Carlos Lopes, Charlie 
Spedding, Crete Waits and 
Rosa Mota, be also expected 
that Joan Benoit-SamoeJsofl, 
who won the Olympic gold, 
would participate this year. She 
had to wirbdraw from the race 
tost year doe fo an injury. 

Lopes ran 62 min 46 sec 
when be won fo 1983. but (be 
course record, held by Mike 
McLeod and Steve Kenyon. Is 
two seconds faster. Mrs Mota, 
who won tost year's race, bolds 
the women’s best of 69 min 56 
sec. Although it is difficult to 
compare times, since road 
courses vary so much. Poster 
considers that Jones's 61 min 
43 sec which he recorded » 
the first half of the Chi cage 
marathon, is a pointer to the 
Welshman's possibility of get- 
ting dose to one boor.

New dates ■ 

The dates given for this 
year’s European Cap and Cup 
Winners’ Cup finals yesterday 
were incorrect. Although May 
14 and 7 were respectively the 
dates allocated to the m a rch es. 
UEFA have subsequently 
amended them to enable na- 
tional squads more time to 
prepare for the World Cup in 
June. The European Cup final 
will now be held in Seville on 
May 7, and the Cup Winners’ 
Cup final on May 2 — a Friday 
— in Lyon. The first leg of the 
UEFA Cup final will be played 
on April 30, the second on 
either May 6 or May 8. 


New York (AP) - The 
confrontation betuccn the 
world's three leading indoor 
pole vauheTs. Sergey Bubka, of 
the Soviet Union, and Billy 
Olson and Joe Dial, of the 
United States, will take place 
on Friday night, two weeks 
sooner than expected. 

The three had not been 
scheduled to meet until Feb- 
ruary 28 in the USA- Mobil 
Championships at Madison 
Square Garden. But Howard 
Schmem. director of Friday's 
Wana maker Mi II rose Games at 
the same venue, said the 
Athletics Congress, the Ameri- 
can governing body of track 
and field, had told him that 
Bubka and four other Soviet 
athletes would be arriving 
tonight for Friday's meeting. 

”1 think this will be the 
greatest pole vault we've ever 
had." Schmertz said. “I 
thought we were going to have 
a great duel between Billy 
Olson and Joe Dial. I think the 
addition of Bubka puts the 
meet over the top." 

Olson, making a comeback 
after two injury-plagued sea- 
sons. has been the most 
impressive of the three. He has 
surpassed the world indoor best 
four times, .most recently last 
Saturday in the Vitalis-U.S. 
Olympic Invitational, clearing 
1 9ft S'/rin - only hours after 
Bubka had vaulted 1 9ft 5in in 
Moscow. When Bubka, holder 


of the world outdoor record a 
19ft fi'-lin. learned of Olson' 
feat, he said he was “rathe 
surprised” Olson is in toj 
form again after failures at tw< 
meetings prior to the Olympii 
Invtiiaiional. Before that hi 
had broken the world indoo 
best in each of his threi 
previous meets. Olson blamci 
the two failures on over 
confidence. 

"I got caught up in all thi 
hype, one world record afte 
another." he said. *i thought 
could do it again but 1 learnet 
a quick lesson. 

“1 won't let that happen thi 
week. Victory is the mos 
important thing. It's going i< 
be strictly business." 

Olson has never beatei 
Bubka in five meetings, in 
doors or outdoors. The closes 
he came was in 1984 at Lo 
Angeles, where Bubka set th 
world indoor best of 1 9ft 1 ’«ii 
and Olson went to 19ft Win 
making him the first vaulter i< 
clear 19fi and lose. 

“This is the first lime I f« 
capable of beating him." Olso- 
said “I’m excited that he' 
going to be there." Olson r 
also glad toto see Dial, th 
American outdoor nrcor- 
holder at I9fi 2>/.»ui in th 
meet. Dial, whose best jum 
this season has been 19ft 4Vjir 
said: “I'm up there with all c 
them."

ch air m an two years earlier, 
<fid nothing to quiet the 
dissent. u For many reasons 
Eddie- Gray held a unique 
position of affection with 
everyone connected with the. 
dub. Moreover, be was a 
highly respected manager 
who had accomplished ranch 
ta steering Leeds United 
through the difficult timet of 
the tost few seasons. 

"Nonetheless, in the final 
-analysis it was mutually 
decided that ft was the right 
time for Eddie to; leave the 
chib as we sought , a fresh 
impetus to secure promotion." 


It seemed shabby treatment 
for a modi loved figure and it 
smacked of panic, which the 
two-week hiatus between 
Gray's dismissal and a new 
appointment did nothing to 
dispeL Once . again the 
board's decision did little to 
convince observers -of their 
sense of directum. Trevor 
Cherry and' Terry Yoratiu 
who have been so successful 
at Bradford City, were known 
to be the first choice. That 
move broke down when the 
Bradford chairman, Stafford 
Heggfobodum, said that 
Bradford would demand 


£200,000 each as compensa- 
tion for releasing them. 

As the pair were only on 
six-month contracts at Brad- 
ford. that figure seemed to 
many to be an opening bid 
rather than a realistic de- 
mand. It was enough, though, 
to defied the Leeds board, 
even though the sale of the 
ground a month earlier had 
paid off debts of £1.9 million, 
tearing them with some 
money fo the kitty. 

Instead the clnb turned to 
Billy Bremner, Re vie 's cap- 
tain. who had been gaining 
experience as manager of 
Doncaster Rovers for seven 
years. His record there was 
quietly satisfactory rather 
than sensational, establishing 
the club's place in the third 
division at the second attempt 
after' tbeir first promotion 
had been followed by immedi- 
ate relegation. 

It is far too early to pass 
judgement on Bremner's 
stewardship, btrt if the objec- 
tive was to provide a fresh 
impetus to secure promotion 
it has bad the reverse effect 
Inevitably, Bremner came in 
with different ideas from 
Gray, which exacerbated the 
already unsettled atmosphere. 

His first derision' was to 
tell Lorimer. the player's 
spokesman, that, -at 33, he no 
longer figured fo hrs plans. It 
was a derision (hat at toast 
one of the other candidates 
would have token but it. might 
have been delayed with ad- 
vantage until things had 
quietened' down. 


The team got off to a bad 
start under their new manag- 
er. losing the first two 
matches 3-0, and other 
changes followed. Bremner's 
complaints about tbeir defen- 
sive naivety and lack of 
combativeness were quickly 
followed by action, with two 
new full backs and a central 
defender - Caswell, Robinson 
and Rennie — joining the 
dub, while Bremner sought to 
provide steel in midfield by 
moving Hamson forward. 

As the players tried to 
adjust to his vision of the 
game, the balance so far has 
not been achieved and 
Bremner told last week's 
annual general meeting that 
he still needed to sign three 
new ptejers. 

Bremner has few illusions 
about the nature of his task 
and, surprisingly for such a 
aggressive player, he is fatal- 
istic. 

"After all oar experiences 
when we just missed out as a 
team," he said, "I believe 
that if your name is on a 
trophy yoo will win it and if ii 
isn't yon won't whatever you 
do. People say they succeeded 
because they were determined 
to, but the guys who fail can 
have tried as bard. 

“I have been given the 
opportunity now, but there is 
no guarantee that I am going 
to succeed. There were some 
very good managers among 
the' six before me who faffed 
here, and I know that if I 
don't provide success I'll go 
the same way as them."

CRICKET: HOW ENGLAND FAILED TO DO WHAT THEY COULD HAVE DONE ON THEIR HEAPS 


England lack the bulldog bite 


From John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 

Kingston, Jamaica 


It was a pity about 
England's batting in the 
second innin gs against the 
Leeward Islands on Monday 
because until then the visit to 
Antigua had gone well There 
had been no militant political 
protests, though the small- 
ness of the crowds may have 
earned its own message, and 
the side's cricket had shown 
encouraging signs. AD was set 
for a useful victory when, as 
Gower put it, England 
“snatched a draw from the 
jaw? of victory**. 

I had begun to be suspi- 
cious of England's perfor-

mance when the captain, 
looking more than usually 
detached, stopped trying to 
dismiss Otto, his opposite 
number, in the Leewards' 
second innings. There were 
still three wickets to get at the 
time and Otto bad been in 
some difficulty against Fos- 
ter. Thereafter, the initiative 
oirrendered. England caught 
ihetr captain's mood. 

There was some excuse for 
wing bowled out for 94 in 
ihe opening match in St 
Vincent That was on a 
ratten pitch, for one thing; 


but to make 116 m the 34 
overs that the Leewards 
bowled ou Monday should 
have been a formality, how- 
ever dubious the umpiring 
and defensively placed the 
field. England would have 
done it on their heads 29 
times out of 30- 
Instead Gower fell to a bad 
shot and Botham to an 
outrageous one; Gatting and 
Robinson were bowled off 
iheir pods; and Richardson, a 
makeshift bowler who bad 
never before picked up a 
first-class wicket, took five 
for 40. So much of the bard 
work on the first three and a 
half days was wasted. It was 
disappointing and unneces- 
sary. But ii is not the end of 
the world. To have scored 
409 in the first innings and 
bowled the Leewards out for 
236 and 288 is not to be 
sniffed at 

Of the bowlers, Ellison, 
Thomas and Foster each had 
one admirable spell - Ellison 
on the first day when the ball 
moved around, Thomas 
when he made inroads into 
the Leewards' second innings, 
and Foster, whose form on 
Monday morning was as 
good as when he bowled 
India out in Madias just over 
a year ago. Any of them 
bowling as they aid at their 
best in Antigua would give 
the West Indian batsmen 
something to think about. 
Botham has not yet knuckled 
down, I think. When England 
were backing off in the field 
on Monday he seemed not to 
be attending when a catch 
came his way at slip. 

Of the batsmen, Gatting is 
finding it easier than the 
others. Gooch. Robinson and 
Lamb have made the fifties, 
though, and that is a start. 
What is nothing like sharp 
enough is the running be- 
tween wickets. No attempt 
has yet been made to put a 
fielding side under the least 
pressure. In both matches the 
opposition have run much 
better than England. 

Being somewhat stately. 
Gooch finds the quick two 
incommoding, but the others

B team’s 
hopes 
fall with 
Smith 


Colombo (Reuter) - En- 
gland B were beaten by eight 
rum yesterday in the fourth 
one-day international against 
Sri Lanka despite a pugna- 
cious 66 by Chris Smith after 
the tourists had been set 186 
to wioSri Lanka lead 3-1 in 
the five-match series. 

England's task trad been 
made difficult by Rpshan 
Mahanama, who scored an 
undefeated III to steer his 
side out of early trouble. By 
the last over of their reply, 
the touring team had reached 
165 for eigbt. 

The first three balls yielded 
10, including a six by Smith 
off the second, and when die 
fourth ball was called wide, 
the visitors needed 10 from 
three balls. 

Smith was run out attempt- 
ing an impossible second run 
and the last mam Cowans, 
foiled to score off the final 
two balls, leaving them on 
177 For nine . 

Despite a brisk start when 
20 came off the first four 
overs, England struggled to 
keep up with the pace for 
most of their innings and 
were in trouble at 58 for four 
after 22 overs. 

By the 34th over they had 
moved on to 108 for six but 
there was a glimmer of hope 
when Trcmlett hit three fours 
in a quick 29 before he was 
bowled. 

Earlier, Mahanama had led 
Sri Lanka's recovery from the 
depths of 10 for three. He 
was dropped by Slack at 
backward square-leg off Law- 
rence when he was 66. His 
innings included nine fours 
and a six.

Fatigue threatens England 


By Nicholas Hailing 


Two players, Colin Irish and 
Doug Lloyd, have dropped out

injuries, but England should 
still be for too powerful for

championship group game at 
Leicester tonight 
Taiham (ankle), Vaughan 
(groin), and McNish, who will 
be appearing in bis first 
international with a strapped 
wrist are the players who are 
less than 1 00 per cent fiL 
Few of the remaining seven 
members of the squad are 
likely to be at their peak, 
according to Bill Beswick, the 


phase of the season with the 
dubs. I was amazed how tired 
they were when they came to 
me." 

For England to improve on 
then- 108-93 win over Switzer- 
land in Bdlinzona a year ago 
and finish their first world 
championship venture with a 
record of three wins and three 
defeats, 'Beswick knows that be 
can ill afford to make too many 
demands on the players he has 
had in his charge since Sunday 
at Padgate College, near 
Warrington, where he lectures 
in PE. 

"There was I trying to get a 


England coach. “The greatest super-charge out of them, but 
danger we have is fatigue," there was not a lot there." he 
Beswick said as he prepared for said. "As a result we bad a 
his 944th England coaching pretty placid practice. I was 
session yesterday. "It's a tired worried about them leaving 


their game on the practice 
floor, it's all been fairly steady 
rather than at an e xhilarating 
pace." 

In Beswick'5 favour is the 
fact foal at toast four of his 
players displayed promisi 
form in Carlsberg Nation 
League games for their dubs at 
the weekend. The shooting of 
Vaughan (28 points) for Walk- 
ers Crisps Leicester, Gardner 
(21) for Sharp Manchester 
United, and Sewell (29) and 
Balogun (19) for 
Hem el/Watford Royals au-

BOBSLEIGHING 


A pain in the 
neck for 
Phipps’s hopes 



Alan Cearns, Nick Phipps's 
brakeman, was unable to com- 
pete in yesterday’s final prac- 
tice session for today's World 
Cup four-man event in Lake 
Placid and may be doubtful for 
next week's world champion- 
ships in West Germany (Chris 
Moore writes). Cearos is suffer- 
ing from a neck injury which 
he aggravated during Monday’s 
training for the final World 
Cup race of the season. 

Though the pair were dis- 
appointed to slip from second 
place at the half-way stage to 
finish sixth in last weekend's 
two-man competition, the 16 
points Phipps acquired has 
virtually assured him of at least 
a bronze medal in the World 
Cup combination. 

Phipps had also been hoping 
for a top three place in the 
four-man event this week. Bui 
Ceams's injury is likely to have 
put paid to that. 

There was a further injury 
Wow yesterday for the British 
team, who are well in the 
running for a medal in the 
team competition ibis week, 
when Tom De La Hunt}’ of the 
RAF broke a bone in his 
shoulder. Bui he was still 
hoping to driye today. 


YACHTING 


Old-fashioned skill

Fremantle (Renter) — Crew 
skills and sails come before 
technology as the crucial fac- 
tors both in (he 12-metre

Cop competition, according to a 
top United States yachtsman, 
Baddy Melges- 

Mdgts. skipper of Chicago's 
Heart of Ameriau which is 
challenging to compete for the 
cap, says the fact that three 
different yachts have won the 
first three races of the seven- 
race championship shows the 
boats are evenly matched. 

"What we've seen here is no 
breakthrough. Crew members 
still seem to be important on a 
12 -metre," be said. 

Here to observe his compet- 
itors while his syndicate's new 
yacht is being bofit, Melges 
said be was shocked at the 
tight security and at the lack of 
sportsmanship in the 12 -metre. 
dass.**It doesn't seem to be a 
real sporting event This is 
Mood and gins, there's no 
question about H. 

"Jma atom every aspect of

He said Heart of America 
would abandon the security 
shroud when the S7 mOfiqn 


syndicate arrives to F remantl e 
in September to prepare its 
challenge for the cap, won by 
Australia II to 1983 after 132 
years with the New York Yacht 
Club. 

Team strate gi st Gary Jobson 
said he believed the odds were 
50-50 that Australia wouid lose 
the cup, probably to an 
American yacht 

The Chicago syndicate plans 
to take toe ctn> to la ke 
Michigan. It has secured a 
court judeeengnt that the lake is 
an aim of toe sea to allow it to 
compete for the cap. 

Jobson said be hoped Chi- 
cago coaid help restore friendly 
rivalry and that be had been 
impressed with the openness of 
the New Zealand team here. 

“It's kind of ton. The New 
Zealand crew don't conceal 
their halls and they’re doing 
pretty good here." Jobson said. 

New Zealand's KZ 5 won the 
first race on February 7, came 
third in the second race and 
second to yesterday's third 
race,

BOXING 


A man of leather 
may get tanned 


By Sriinunar Sen, Boxing Correspondent 


If Danilo Cabrera's fists can 
live up to the tough talking of 
his manager. Hector Rrvera. 
then Barry McGuigan will have 
to look lively when he defends 
his World Boxing Association 
title on Satunday in Dublin. 

In ibe steamy heat, of the 
Swords gym. where Cabrera 
will be putting the finishing 
touches to his hurried prepara- 
tions vo beat Ireland's world 
champion, the big Puerto 
Rican .boasted, that his man 
would knock out the danger 
inside six rounds. 

"McGuigan will be Danfio’s 
eighteenth knock-out." he said, 
while Cabrera smiled weakly 
at the forecast Rivera contin- 
ued: "He has a punch in both 
hands and he will knock 
McGuigan out m the fifth or 
sixth round." 

Cabrera’s, trainer, Gregory

Huge entry 

for March 
foursomes 


By Mitchell Platts 

The astonishing growth in the 
popularity of golf is reflected 
fay the entry for. the 21st Avia 
Watches foursomes champion- 
ship which will unfold on the 
Blue and Red courses at The 
Berkshire on March 18 to 20. A 
total of 84 pairs, compared 
with 36 when the event was 
first held in 1966. will compete 
in the number one division and 
35 of the 336 competitors are 
under the age of 21. 

Kirsty Speak, aged 14, a 
Lancashire B county player, 
will become the youngest gofer 
to compete in the Avia, ■ when 


she partners Laura Faircknigh, 
aged 16. 

The increase in the number 
of youngsters competing in the 
event is partly because of 
greater encouragement at dub 
and county level and also 
because of tbe magnetism of 
the pro f essional game as the 
Women's Professional Golf 
Association circuit is expected 
io be worth more than £1 
minion by 1988. 

Jill Thornhill the organizer 
to the championship, said: 
“The growth of the pro: 
fessional circuit has dearly 
encouraged more kids to take 
up golf and, of course, there is 
more parental backing on 
financial terms as they can see 
a future for their children in 
the game." 

Linda. Bayman will attempt 
to record her seventh victory in 
the tournament when she 
defends the title with Maureen 
Garner 


son is fighting in Canada, but 
have come here." 

Cabrera, the world No- 6. 
could not believe his luck when 
McGuigan's manager. B. J. 
Eastwood, -contacted him 
barely a week ago to ask him to 
step in as a late substitute for 
Fernando Sosa of Argentina, 
the world No 4. who had to 
drop out late in the day with a 
broken index finger on the left 
hand. Rivera claimed that his 
fighter was fully prepared for 
McGuigan and he had been 
training for the national 


championship to the Domini- 
can Republic. 

Cabrera, who has worked as 
a farm hand, lives only for 
fighting now. .and that, accord- 
ing to Rivera, - is sufficient 
motivation to beat McGuigan. 

Cabrera has an impressive 
amateur record. Out of 108 
contests be was beaten only 
eight times, which is not a bad 
achievement for a boxer who 
must have had to put up with 
.Cubans and Puerto Ricans in 
OenrrsU American tournaments. 
He was voted tlte Dominican 
Republic's "Amateur Boxer of 
■the Year" three times in 
succession. 

Cabrera, however, did not 
look quite substantial enough 
to make good the threats of his 
manager, when one recalls how 
McGuigan stood up to the right 
hand of Juan Laporte. one 
wonders whether the more 
slightly built Cabrera has 
enough power in either hand 
. Towards the end of Cabrera’s 
press conference. Rivera began 
to qualify his forecasts some- 
what “We have to knock out 
McGuigan because we are 
fighting in his back yard". 

Cabrera's knock-out boast 
appeared paper-thin when, in 
answer to the question. "Why 
is Cabrera called 'Cuero Dura'. 


tough as leather?" Rivera said. 
“Whei 


ten he was a little boy he 
did not feel mosquito bites." 
One hopes that McGuigan's 
left hook will carry rather more 
sting. 


RACING 


Bobsline to enhance 
Cheltenham claim 


From Our Irish Correspondent, Dublin 


Celebrity day 


Sponsorship for the Four 
Stars national pro-celebrirv 
tournament at Moor Parti. 
Hertfordshire, from May 29 to 
June I. has already guaranteed 
the financial success of this 
year's event and its continu- 
ance in future years. In 
nssecond year, the Four Stars 
event features not only the 
quartet of celebrities who have 
given their name to the 
tournament - Terre Wogfin. 
Jimmy Tarbuek. Bruce Forsyth 
and Henry Cooper - but also a 
number of top .personalities 
from the United States. 


Racing is likely to resume at 
Down Royal in Ireland today, 
where the highlight will be the 
reappearance of Bobsline in the 
Hillsborough Chase and an 
excellent contest for tbe Black 
Bush Champion Trial Hurdle, 
in which Herbert United, a 
fancied outsider for the Cham- 
pion Hurdle, will be trying to 
advance his Cheltenham 
claims. 

Bobsline. who .redeemed bis 
somewhat famished reputation 
when he returned to winning 
form with an easy victory over 
Kiflolowen at Naas, should 
have little trouble following up. 
His only serious rival appears 
to .be Dnun]araan,who will 
surely find today s distance of 
two and a half miles too short. 
Bobsline should advance his 
claim as a' leading contender 
for the Queen Mother Cham- 
pion Chase, in which he fell 
three fences from home last 
year. 

Herbert United has been the 
medium to some long-range 
bets 'for the Champion H untie 
to the last few weeks. He will be 
remembered best for his ex- 
cellent effort when a close third 


to Floyd in last year’s County 
Hurdle at tbe Cheltenham 
Festival and be won five races 
in Ireland last season. This 
term he has been a little 
disappointing, however, and he 
will have to recapture his best 
form to hold today's useful 
opposition. 

The best of his rivals could 
be Dochas, who turned in an 
unusually lacklustre display , in 
the Sweeps Hurdle last month, 
but who had previously beaten - 
Diane's Glen at umerick. ' 
Others who must be given 
chances are the former Tri- 
umph Hurdle winner. Northern 
Game, and Miller HilL

hands in front of his lace, the poles clenched 
between his body and hxs bent arms. 
PfeSeabkhler dearly thmlm he can achieve 
cleaner aerodynamic penetration by getting 
arms and sticks oat of the way in order to re- 
duce what a designer of racing can would 
call his -frontal area”. 


"'hi* 


**r?e done qnfte a lot of work in wind 
tmmels,” Bartelski says, -and there are 
several alternative positrons that, in aerody- 
namic terms, are about 5 per cent more effi- 
cient than the standard tack* The trouble b 
that yon lose stability. The basic tuck is a 
pretty stable position, and at the end of the 
day that's just as important.” 


Bartelski points out that although 
Pfaffen bidder with bis new streamlined 
style finished fourth in the race, two places 
higher than BeU, a perfectly conventional 
method carried the British skier to tiro best 
-time over the flat-oat bottom part of the 
course. Over that section, he was even two 
hundredths of a second taster than the 
winner, Peter Mueller of Switzerland, whose 
overall time was more than a second better 
titan that of the next man. 


“That was a brilliant performance by 
Martin," Bartelski observes, “He took foil 
advantage of the conditions, committed 
himself completely and chose a more direct 
line than anyone else. Over that section 


Mueller was the only other skier who amf 
dose. It's nice to see a British . person 
showing tiro Alpine nations how to do ft”— 
as, of coarse, Bartelski did with his famous 
second place at Val Gardena in 1981, still 
the best World Cup performance by a 
Briton. 

What, then, might be die future for 
Ptafienbtchter's invention? Will we soon be 
seeing such adept egg-inckers as Moeller 
and the Olympic champion, Billy Johnson, 
adopting the Austrian's swallow-rail crouch? 
Bartelski is sceptkaL -As tar as the benefits 
are concerned,” he says, "it's swings and 
roundabouts. It gives people so mething to

is built in local and Forest of Dean 
random stone and has been completely 
renovated inside in the past three 
years. Although it occupies a hilltop po-

closed by a some- walled courtyard

It is small, with only two bedrooms 
and a joint drawing room and dining 
room, converted from a bam, but It 
has that air of modem luxury which has 
brought with it an Indoor swimming 
pool. Coles, Knapp and Kennedy of

more than half an acre, and according 

to the agents Jackson and Jackson at

potential'*. It has four bedrooms, two 
large reception rooms and a conser-

fers of more than £300,000. -

Sales set for France 


COUNTRYPROPERTY 





An examination of the entrails of the 
French cockerel has led the two 
English owners of a property services 
firm in the south of France to conclude 
that the omens for buying a property 
in France this year are favourable. 

The firm is Safi (Sorieie Anglo- 
Francai.se Immobilize). based at 
Antibes, but covering property 
throughout the country, whose part- 
ners are Stuart Bakiock and Michael 
Howard-Johnston. They not only 
believe that the property market in 
France will pick up in 1986 but also 
have devised a new scheme for helping 
potential buyers. 

Looking at the past year, they say 
1985 was difficult because President 
Mitterrand's wealth tax has discour- 
aged French buyers, who normally 
make up 84 per cent of the purchasers. 
The result was that turnover was low 
and prices did not increase. 

A few British buyers, who decided 
that, despite M. Mitterrand. France 
was sound, did purchase, often at good 
prices, and there were other interna- 
tional buyers who took advantage of 
the strong Swiss ' franc and West 
• German Deutschmark. 

This year, however, the situation 
may change if. as is predicted, the 
electorate return a right-of-centre 
government to the Assembly. If this 
happens, Safi's partners conclude, the 
wealth tax will be abolished, the 
market will become buoyant and 
prices should rise. They suggest, 
therefore, that intending buyers should 
act as soon as possible. The say; “If the 
results of- -the election are not as 
expected, we predict there win 'till be 


a rise in prices, albeit slower, because 
those buyers and sellers who have been 
hesitating over the last two or three 
years will deride there is no point 
waiting further." 

Gambling somewhat that this is 
what will happen. Safi has decided to 
operate a service which does not 
charge commission for sales to the 
vendor. These agents have found that 
in the past hundreds of inquiries for 
properties have resulted in few sales. 

‘The right way to go 
about the business'’ 

which has been time-consuming, 
expensive and unsatisfactory. 

Their new scheme operates as a 
search service for the potential buyer, 
and he pays for it. He pays Safi £300 
on retaining the firm to act for him. 
giving advice on properties, locations 
and valuations. On the signing of a 
preliminary contract between purchas- 
er and vendor a further £1,000 is paid, 
and these fees are not reimbursable if 
the sale is not completed. 

When the final deed is signed, a final 
£2,000 fee is payable, plus 1% per cent 
of the purchase price. It is an 
expensive service, costing altogether 
just over £4,000 for a £50,000 property 
and £4,800 for a £100,000 property. But 
Safi, through its subsidiary Mediterra- 
nean Property Services, is convinced it 
is the right way to go about this 
business and that buyers will find the 
service good value.

Non-spy used 
by Russians 
as face-saver 


Mr Anatoly Shcharansky's 
arrival here yesterday was the 
end of a process which began 
ai the meeting between Mr 
Reagan and Mr Gorbachov 
in Geneva in November, or 
in the swirl of contacts 
between Soviet and US 
officials which surrounded 
that event it was agreed that 
an exchange of prisoners 
would improve relations be- 
tween East and West 

The United States and the 
Soviet Union had different 
reasons for wanting such an 
improvement Mr Gorbachov 
his determination to dissuade 
die United States from de- 
ploying the Strategic Defence 
Initiative (SDI), Mr Reagan 
his apparent wish to enter the 
history books as a man of 
peace. 

But which prisoners to 
exchange? Naturally, the 
United States wanted Dr 
Andrei Sakharov as well — or 
even more than — .Mr 
Shcharansky. But Dr Sakha- 
rov is an even greater symbol 
of resistance to the Soviet 
Government, not just in the 
eyes of the world but in tbe 
eyes of educated Soviet 
citizens. The Soviet leaders 
would drive a very hard 


exchange for brave Commu- 
nists who had been agents in 
the WesL 

In this, the Soviet Govern- 
ment was playing on what it 
believes to be the essential 
anti-Semitism of the Russian 
public, although some West- 
ern authorities say this belief 
is outdated. 

Israel had made dear to 
the Soviet Union that more 
Jewish immigration was a 
condition for h$ being pre- 
pared to accept Soviet in- 
volvement in any Middle 
East peace negotiations. Is- 
raeli activity was. therefore, 
an important factor in Mr 
Shcharansky's release. 

Bui there had to be some 
face-saver for the Soviet 
Union. His release had to be 
related 10 an exchange of 
spies. This would allow the 
Soviet Union to insist on the 
fiction that he was one. Since 
President Carter had taken 
the unprecedented step of 
announcing that he was not a 
spy, accepting him as part of 
a spy exchange also involved 
a concession by the US. 

So spies had to be found 
with whom to trade him. 
Although a Czechoslovakian

Shcharansky was a more This meant activating Dr

two crucial reasons: he is world news who has attained

Outside the Speranza Piz- 
zeria. a queue of 20: people 
waited patiently in biting 
winds arid intermittent driz- 
zle, for a table inside. 

A few hundred yards away 
a new steak-house, its emer- 
ald green and while exterior, 
brightening tbe drab sur- 
roundings, was foil with 
diners while down Great - 
Victoria Street, a small 
crowd huddled by the door 
of Capos, a similar pizza 
parlour, awaiting' entry, and 
warmth. 

The neon lights of a range 
of other eating places and. 
fesi-food takeaways lining 
the street beckoned inviting- 
ly to hundreds pouring from 
two cinemas where it lad 
been full-boose , for the five 
films being shown. 

In the Fonun Hold, still 
widely remembered both as 
the Europe and the most 
bombed hotel in the Uoited 
Kingdom, a new Victorjan 
style bar has succeeded* in 
attracting people into a 
building that has resembled 
a forbidding fortress because 
of the high security deemed 
necessary to protect it from . 
tbe men with bombs and 
bullets determined on a 
good publicity' coup. 

Even that has changed. 
The high wire mesh fence, 
topped with barbed wire has 
been replaced by a lower 
wooden fence and potted 
plants. Already people in the 
city are asking when that too 
Will disappear. 

Across the street alongside 
the traditional bars, the hi- 
tech age has anWd to . 


nighl the transformation 
has been starting. 

Exiles returning are aston- 
ished at the revitalization 
and range of entertainment 
on offer™ 

The heady atmosphere at 
night is a remarkable tribute 
to a people who appear to 
have accepted that terrorism 
' is sow an acceptable, albeit 
declining, risk of life. 

The much seeded boost to 
the: city centre came six 
years ago with the refurbish- 
ment mid reopening of the 
Edwardian' Grand Opera 
House, sparking a boom in 
nightlife ‘ that has proved 

unstoppable. 

In the Iasi three years, 41 
restaurants, 38 cafes and 55 
hot-food bare have opened 
in Belfast to cater for every 
pallet Many are concentrat- 
ed in tbe Great Victoria 
Street area and it is little 
wonder that one Provisional 
muttered: “It used to be a 
derdief street. You go down 
there now. it's like Los 
Angeles at night time." 

It is not only night life 
that ‘ is improving. Redevel- 
opment is rapidly taking 
place m die shopping centre 
with £86 million invested or 
proposed during, the last two 
years. Security is much more 
relaxed 

Bombed sites hum to the 
noise of building activity 
and the .Grand Central 
Hotel, once home for sol- 
diers flowing to a troubled 
province, has been demol- 
ished to make way for a £40 
million indoor shopping, 
office and car-park complex.

Renewed speculation that 
Mr Mandela’s release was 
imminent was set off by a 
report yesterday on Israel 
radio that Mr Mandela, aged 
67 and imprisoned since 
196Z could be released in 
response to a personal appeal 
to President Botha by Mr 
Shimon. Peres. 


A statement last night by 
the South African Minister of 
Justice, Mr Kobie Coetsee, in 
response to “speculation and 
numerous inquiries", recalled 
Mr Botha's reference to Mr 
Mandela in his speech open- 
ing Par liam ent on January 
31. 

Mr Botha said then that he 


would be prepared to discuss 
with “interested govern- 
ments" die release of the 
ANC leader on humanitarian 
grounds if Mr Shcharansky, 
Dr Andrei Sakharov and 
Captain Wynand Du Toit, a 
South African soldier held in 
Angola, were also set free for 
similar reasons. 


plate glass and bright lights, 
and the Drury Lane have 
been packing them in since 
they opened a few months 
ago and hardly a month now 
passes without an opening 
ceremony or the announce- 
ment of plans for future 
restaurants and bars. 

For those remembering 
the early 1970s when the 
terrorist wreaked havoc 
across the province, empty- 
ing the capital's streets at 


the city and its suburbs by 
Chybus. Expecting perhaps 
100 per week they were 
astonished to attract 1,000 
wishing to see areas they had 
been afraid to visit since the 
onset of violence in 1969. 

For £2 they saw both the 
old industrial heart of tbe 
dry and its leafy middle 
class suburbs, though of ! 
course, there were omis- 
sions. Yes, you’ve guessed, 
the provinces most famous 
roads, the Falls and Xhanirill, 
were not on the itinerary.
