will get a bigger proportion of 
overseas trade than we shall." 





A Downing Street source 
said that virtually every min- 
ister had spoken at toe meet- 
ing and there had been 
absolutely no discord. 

The Prime Minister told the 
House that toe fall in ofl prices 
provided an economic oppor- 
tunity. “Undoubtedly, it will 
be helpful to our manufactur- 
ing industries. It will reduce 
their costs", she told MPs. 

But she joined Mr Lawson 
in warning that toe bonus 
could be lost if wages contin- 
ued to outpace productivity. 

Mrs Thatcher said that toe 
United States, Germany and 
Japan would gain more from a 
fell in oil prices than the 
United Kingdom. “We must 
also, in addition, keep down 
unit labour costs; otherwise 


Mr Lawson also gave a 
warning about toe effect of 
rising wage costs on sterling 
and interest rates. 

Treasury sources were say- 
ing last night that wages were 
increasing by 7.5 per cent a 
year, while productivity was 
increasing by only 2.5 per 
cent; giving a 5 per cent 
increase in unit labour costs. 
That compared with unii la- 
bour cost decreases of 1 per 
cent in West Germany and 3 
per cent in Japan. 

Ne\ ertoeless, the last week 
has shown that four days are a 
long time in politics and Mrs 
Thatcher has undoubtedly 
bounced back with renewed 
vigour from toe Westland 
affair, the British Leyland 
turn-about, and last weekend's 
spate of ministerial jockeying 
for rank and file backing. 

In a clear signal to Conser- 
vative MPs who have been 
dismayed by recent doubts 
cast on her leadership, she said 
in a written Commons reply 
last nighL “We are well on 
course but there is much left to 
do. I am fully confident that 
we will carry forward our 
policies to a lasting and suc- 
cessful conclusion”. 

The message at Westmin- 
ster Iasi nighi was that toe 
Prime Minister had seen off 
her Conservative critics and 
that she would, indeed, be 
seeking another five years in 
office.

By Philip Webster 
Political Reporter 

Mr Michael Heseltine ad- 
mitted yesterday that his resig- 
nation from toe Cabinet and 
toe troubles caused for toe 
Government by toe Westland 
affair could have cost him toe 
future leadership of the Con- 
servative Party. 1 

Hesai±“I knew that he who 
wields toe knife never wears 
the crown.” 

But be made clear, in an 
interview with New Society 
magazine, that toe leadership 
remains his ambition. 

Speaking of toe circum- 
stances surrounding his depar- 
ture from government, toe 
former Secretary of Slate for 
Defence said: “If the cards go 
your way, good luck. If they 
don’t, at least you've done 
something worthwhile.” 

Mr Heseltine disclosed that 
he intends to make a series of 
speeches over the next few 
months defining his brand of 
Toryism. 

His speech to toe Young 
Conservatives' conference on 
Sunday was seen as toe open- 
ing of his bid for the leader- 
ship. 

Other speeches will cover

Tbe Westland share price 
slipped from K)8p to 78p 
yesterday, although the right 
to subscribe for new shares in 
toe reconstruction is worth 
another 20p. 

Analysts believe the shares 
could fall further. Only a few 
days ago Westland's broker 
Rowe & Pitman was paying a 
150p a share on behalf of toe 
nominee holdings. The Euro- 
pean consortium’s abortive

I30p. 

Mr Alan Bristow, who has

Darkest 
hours in 
Soviet 
captivity 

From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

Smiling and cracking jokes 
with his “criminal contacts" 
Mr Anatoly Shcharansky last 
night looked back on his 
darkest hours in tbe past nine 
years and looked forward to a 
new era of detente between 
East and West In which 
human rights played a signifi- 
cant role. 

Mr Shcharansky was hold- 
ing his first press conference 
since his release by tbe Soviet 
Union on Tuesday^ The press, 
he said, were his criminal 
contacts because it was 
through speaking to them as a 
spokesman for human rights 
in Moscow that he had ended 
op in prison. 

He said he had never actual- 
ly beeu tortured by being 
beaten n Nile in prison'but that 
the physical torture was real in 
terms of hunger and cold. He 
had been put in solitary con- 
finement for 130 successive 
days and during (hat time he 
received only 1500 calories in 
food one day and 900 calories 
the next. 

The cold was so intense, he 
said, that it nas impossible to 
sleep because it was necessary 
to do exercises to keep warm. 

His norsl year was 1982 
when he was forbidden to 
receive any mail from anyone 
and he decided that the only 
way to prove to toe world that 
he was still alire was to stage a 
hunger strike. 

“1 had to face up to the fact 
(hat I would' probably have to 
starve myself to death in order 
to prove I was alive," he said. 

Only twice did conditions 
change for him. The first was 
at toe end of 1984 when he was 
taken into hospital and given 
meat and vitamins for two 
months. He found out why 
when he was allowed a visit 
from his mother and brother at 
the point when he was begin- 
ning to look well again. Imme- 
diately after he saw them he 
was senf back to the near- 
starvation regime.

fattened op before his release. 
“The tradition of toe Soviet 
system when it prodnees goods 
for export is to put them in 
much better covers.” he said. 

Mr Shcharansky said he 
was optimistic that the release 
of other Soviet Jews could be 
, won. 

“Now there exists a real 
opportunity to build a new 
detente, which combines hu- 
man rights with other 
spheres." he said. 

Mr Shcharansky had just 
passed the series of medical 
tests which showed that he has 
only got a very slight heart 
problem after all his ordeals. 
He has been advised to rest 
and take it easy for a few 
months before becoming too 
active again, but at his press 
conference be seemed deter- 
mined to throw himself as soon 
as possible into toe work for 
Soviet Jewry.

Russian hotels lock out the nosey key-ladles

."’■an and Iraq accused each

the desperate battles being 
fought out in toe swamps 
south of Basra Page 7 



From Christopher Walker 
Moscow 

The latest institution to fall 
under the streamlining axe of 
toe new Kremlin leadership 
led by Mikhail Gorbachov is 
that of the dezhurmye, the all- 
seeing key-ladies who enjoyed 
pride of place on each floor of 
every Soviet hotel and acted as 
unofficial moral guardians. 

The latest edition of 
Lherctamayo Gmeta (Liter- 
ary Gazette), the weekly paper 
jof the writers* anion, reports 
the success of a 19-year cam- 
paign against this unique Son- 
et custom with a decree from 
tbe Ministry of Housing and 

Communal Services in the 
Russian Federation (the larg- 


est Of the USSR’s IS repub- 
lics) abolishing the job from 
January 1. 

Id future, in most hotels 
large and small where the nosy 
(but often bribable) key-ladies 
held sway, a Western-style 
system will be introduced with 
keys collected and returned 
from a front-hall desk. 

Officially, her job is only to 
give guests the key to their 
rooms, but at the vital moment 
the key-lady is somehow never 
there, the paper reported. 

On the other hand, she is 
always very much in evidence 
when she wants to move you to 
another room, or to search 
Hnder tbe bed or in the 
cupboards for unwelcome 


guests. She long ago took on 
tiie added authority of a 
guardian of morals. 

Long resented by Soviet and 
foreign guests alike, tbe 
dezhanye (literally “the duty 
ladies") were seen by outsiders 
as a symbol of the authoritar- 
ian nature of Soviet society 
and its tendency to encourage 
prying. 

They were also costly, which 
is the main reason for their 
abolition at a time when the 
Kremlin is running a drive 
against Inefficiency. 

Though the decree has so 
far been introduced unly in the 
Russian Federation - which 
embraces both Moscow and 
Leningrad — Soviet sources 


predict that it will eventually 
be taken up in the far-flung 
republics which fake their cue 
from the centre. 

The Literary' Gazette point- 
ed oat that the rest of tbe world 
had always managed to run 
hotels without “key ladies" 
and said it was “marvellous" 
that Russia bad now seen 
sense. 

It claimed that toe state 
would save millions of roubles 
“without any redaction in 
service . . . These women are 
not only superfluous* but posi- 
tively harmful to toe nervous 
system." 

The paper, which said that 


its First article attacking tbe 
system had appeared as long 

ago as 1967, said that toe 
Ministry of Communal Ser- 
vices had refused to proride it 
with exact figures about bow 
many jobs would be lost 

But at tbe large Hotel 
Moskva in tbe capital it 
discovered that 130 key-ladies 
had been removed, at a saving 
of about £150,000 a year. 

To mark the success of its 
campaign, toe Gazette an- 
nounced a new weekly column 
dealing with the problems of 
“useless occupations". It 
called on readers to suggest 
others which could be abol- 
ished by toe state.

Conflict among doctors 
over the use of drugs in 
Britain's jails to keep prison- 
ers calm is highlighted in 
evidence to a House of Com- 
mons select committee. 

A report to the committee 
says the administering of be- 
haviour modifying drugs is 
‘'the most notorious instance 
of the blurred dividing line 
between care and control in 
prison medicine". 

MPs on the social services 
committee are investigating 
the prison medical service and 
their latest evidence comes 
from pressure groups includ- 
ing the National Prisoners’ 
Movement (PROP) and Radi- 
cal Alternatives to Prison 

(RAP)- . 

The reformists say the pris- 
on medical service in its 
present form creates a conflict 
between the loyalty of medical 
officers to the prison manage- 
ment and their duties to 
patients.

SDI briefing for 
British groups 


By Rodney Cowton, Defence Correspondent 


By Thomson Prentice 


A remote controlled para- 
chute which can be steered to a 
prerise landing spot could 
revolutionize rescue opera- 
tions and save many lives. 

The parachute, invented in a 
Hampshire attic, can deliver 
payloads of op te 500kg from 
op to 25,000 feet It can be 
steered by ground control, 
ground transmkter,or by a 
parachutist using band con- 
trols. The system has been. 
developed by a former Army 
officer and electronics expert, 

- in Andover, Hamps^e! 

British Airborne Systems 
and Equipment has been get 
np to make the parachutes in 
Hampshhe. The former chief 
test pilot of Concorde, Mr 
Brian Trnbshaw, a con sulta nt, 
said yesterday^The system is 
the most significant step for- 
ward in design since the 
invention of the parachute." 


About K)0 British compa- 
nies and other organizations 
are to receive a top-level 
classified briefing next Tues- 
day on the scope for British 
participation in the American 
Strategic Defence Initiative 
research programme. 

! This is among the first fruits 
of the memorandum of under- 
standing between Britain and 
the United States on British 
participation which was 
signed in December. 

Lieutenant-General James 
Abraham son. director of the 
American SDI Office, win 
address .the conference. 

Ministry of Defence sources 
said that so for up to 10 
agreements had been reached 
worth more than £1 million for 
work by British organizations 
on aspects of the research 
programme. 

It was emphasized that 
these were only preliminary 
contracts which could lead to 


contracts of much greater 
value. 

Among the contracts so far 
agreed, on which the Ministry 
of Defence refuses to release 
details, are one for work on 
optical computers with Her- 
iot-Watt University at Edin- 
burgh, and contracts 
involving Ferranti and 
Plessey. Another worth $2 
million (£1.4 million) was said 
to be "on its way" across the 
Atlantic. 

A previously unrevealed as- 
pect of the memorandum of 
understandiite is that h speci- 
fies seven broad areas of 
activity in the SDI programme 
in which there will be an 
exchange of information . be- 
tween tiie two countries. 


These include advanced 
computing; space technology, 
lasers and optics; battlefield 
management and command, 
control and communications 
systems; and special materials

Nine Cabinet ministers in 
the Irish Republic switched 
jobs last night in a reshuffle 
aimed at restoring the popu- 
larity of the coalition govern- 
ment. 

The scope of the changes 
announced by Dr Garret Fitz- 
Gerald, the Prime Minister, 
after a day of feverish specula- 
tion and rumour in the Dail, 
took politicians of all parlies 
by surprise. 

They had expected the 
changes to involve a few 
ministers, but with the Fine 
Gael - Labour coalition at its 
lowest level of popularity 
since coming to office three 
years ago. Dr FitzGerald has 
taken drastic, some would 
argue panic, measures to re- 
store its fortunes in time fbr a 
general election which must 
be held before November 
1987. 

The main change is the 
removal of Mr Alan Dukes 
from ' the' Ministry of Finance . 
after four hairsMrt Budgets, to 
be replaced by Mr John 
Breton, a tough believer in 
right-wing economics, who as 
Minister for Finance intro- 
duced the Budget which 
brought down Dr FitzGerald’s 
first government in 1982.

Although the survey of 
1,181 people found that 82 per 
cent of men who have wives or 
girlfriends believe their part- 
ners are romantic, only 64 per 
cent of women could say the 
same about their men. 

Women in the North of 
England are most dissatisfied; 
a thir d said their partners were 
not passionate. - 
But romance seems to be 
flourishing in Scotland, where 
fewer than a quarter of Scots 
admitted that .their partners 
could be more romantic. 

The word " romance" itself 
represented different things to 
many people, the survey 
found. 

Nearly a quarter (23 per 
cent) of men and women 
mentioned love, and IS per 
cent wonted- companionship 
and. understanding. 

Women with more 
materialistic concepts wanted 
inti mate dinners and red 
roses, chocolates and other 
gifts, to dress up the romance 
in their lives. 

Only 1 percent of men and : 
women said Valentine's Day 
brought more romance. Near- 
ly 47 per cent believe people 
have become less romantic 
and only 18 per cent said their 
romantic stakes had in- 
creased.

A form of the >w sifent 
epidemic of senile dementia, 
affecting more than 250.000 
people in Britain, is firmly 
linked with exposure to high j 
levels of aluminium, scientists 
say in a report published

Reducing the levels of solu-

be the best long-term strategy 
for controlling tire spread of 
the condition, they suggest

lished in The Lancet today by 
scientists in Newcastle and

It is the first time that this

due simply to exposure of high

Militant inquiry 
‘a Star Chamber’ 


Five ' supporters of the district party executive 7 


« iQ/iJ #[■■«« *17 • 


Labour Party yesterday de- 
scribed a national inquiry as 
“a Star Chamber -with an 
atmosphere ofintiinidation"- 
The five women, all asked 
to give evidence, joined the 
final sessions of the national 
Labour Party inquiry into the 
suspended district party’s con- 
duct Three gave evidence but 
two pulled out and all with- 
drew further co-operation. 
Miss Josie Altman claimed 
a “hit list” had been 
drawn up of about 20 Militant 
supporters earmarked fbr ex- 
pulsion, and that all five of 
them -were on it 
Miss Altman, a member of 


“The main line of die inquea- 
- lion has been to establish who 
supports the Militants. 

- “Clearly, the intention is to 
move the expulsion of leading 
Militant supporters.” 

They were told by letter thai 
evidence would be presented 
to them — instead, they were 
given only “unsubstantiated 
allegations and lies”. 

Miss Cathy Wilson, another 
of those who gave evidence, 
said: “I felt embarrassed and 
intimidated."

ed to report to the national

Heseltine role criticized 


Westland relief is mixed with fear 


As they walked into the 
Westland helicopter plant yes- 
terday, the 7,000 employees 
whose future caused the gov- 
ernment to rock, passed by the 
national flags of Britain a nd 
Italy snapping .in the bitter 
wind alongside Old Glory. 

The flags, proud and newly 
washed, were, they hoped, 
symbolic of a new stability 
arid security that has eluded 
them for nine weary months. 

Inside the plant, the relief 
that a bitter chapter in their 
history had been decided was 
almost perceptible. Butif their 
mistrust of the French was 
great, their fear of American 
business methods and the 
continuing depressed state of 
the world helicopter market 
tempered any tendency to talk 
in terms of victory. 

Mr Stephen Allen, aged 32, 
said: “There is a feefing of 
relief certainly but we do not 
really know how the Sikorsky- 
Fiat deal is going to affect us. 
We backed the board because 


From Tim Jones, Yeovil 
we could not see how the 
Germans and French could 
hdp us when they have got 
their own men on short-time 
working". 

His colleague, Mr David 
Spencer, who has worked 14 
years with the company, said: 
"We are all glad it is going to 
Sikorsky. We have worked 
with the Yanks fbr years and 
think this was the best possi- 
ble outcome.” 

Some of the men, working 
on the huge shop floor where 
great half-built Sea King heli- 
copters dwarf the smaller 
frames of Gazelles and other 
types, were eager to talk but 
reluctant to be named as the 
company wfll next month 
announce the names of 750 
employees who are to lose 
theirjohs. 

One employee with 16 years 
of service said: “I have chil- 
dren, a mortgage and all the 
other commitments. I feel 
happier today than I have 
done for some time But I fear 


there will be more redundan- 
cies in order to make the 
company viable.” 

One positive way to elicit 
shopfloor comment is to men- 
tion the name of Mr Michael 
Heseltine, former Secretary of 
State fbr Defence. The epi- 
taphs are unprintable. 

Even at executive level it is 
clear that there was no great 
admiration for the French way 
of doing things. A company 
spokesman said that although 
they collaborated with 
Aerospatiale on three helicop-, 
ters, often when, chasing or -r 
de rs that company would be 
pushing the merits of an 
exclusively Frencb-boilt ma- 
chine. 



Typical shop-lifter is 
said to be young man 


The popular image of a 
typical shop-lifter bong a 
confused, elderly woman is 
probably wrong, a new survey 
shows. The modern shop thief 
is more likely to be a young 
man. whose main target is

should not be taken lightly 
because the effects couldms 
quentiy outweigh the harm 
caused by the original offence. 

Conviction could cause loss 
of job, depression, the break- 
up of a relationship and the 
identification of the convicted 
person as a thief. 


The survey, conducted in an 
unidentified city by Mr Rob- 
ert Munday. a prosecuting 
solicitor with West Midlands 
County Council, demon- 
strates a shift in trends since 
1960, when research showed 
twice as many women as men 
shop-lifting. 

Mr Munday examined 277 
Shop-lifting cases and found 
that 172 involved men and 
105 women. Most were aged 
under 21 and clothing was 
ahead of food, alcohol cos- 
metics and records on a 
typical shop-lifter's list. 

Mr Munday said the deci-

tion of offenders." 

Among the case histories 
quoted by Mr Munday was 
that of a man aged 51 who 
stole alcohol worth £2.79. He 
told police that he had a drink 
problem and that his daughter 
aged 14 had died four davs 
before.

General, said in a report on 
value-for-money develop- 
ments in the NHS presented 
to Parliament yesleiday: “The

covering four regional health 
authorities and 11 district

that not all avenues for further 
cost improvements have been 
explored. 

“It seems likely that larger 
savings could be achieved if 
all authorites tackled the 
search for cost improvements 
with equal vigour." 

He highlighted how Oxford

year, while others, including 
West Midlands and York-

Jail for 
occult 
killing 

A young mother obsessed by 
the occult, who admitted the 
culpable homicide of her baby 
daughter, was sentenced to 
five years' jail at tbe High 
Court in Edinburgh yesterday. 

Last month, after a nine-day 
trial at the High Court in 
Glasgow, her boy friend, Alan 
Porter, aged 28, was convicted 
of strangling the child, aged 
three months, at Ballocfa Cas- 
tle Country Park in 1983. 

He was jailed for life for the 
murder, bat tbe baby's body 
was never found. 

The mother, Sfaeeaa 
McLaughJan, aged 23, plead- 
ed guilty to a reduced charge of 
culpable homicide, when the 
Crown accepted that she was 
suffering from diminished re- 
sponsibility. 

The jury was told that her 
life was ruled by “spirit 
guides” “Tibetan monks" in 
saffron robes, and tarot cards. 
She told doctors her spirit 
guide said the baby had to die. J 


Inner-city homes 
drive announced 


By Richard Thomson 


The Halifax. Britain’s larg- 
est building society, yesterday 
announced a new commit- 
ment to develop decaying 
inner-city housing as soon as 
legislation now going through 
Parliament allows it to do so. 

Mr Richard Hornby, the 
chairman, said the Halifax 
would set up a subsidiary 
company to own land and lead 
the development He said that 
the society planned to fond an 
annual programme rising to 
about £ 1 00 million by the end 
of the decade. 

By 1990 tbe scheme could 
be producing more than 3,000 
homes a year. Mr Hornby said 
that the new company would 
normally use a “design and 
build" approach using large or 
medium-sized builders, with 
project management handled 
by hired specialists. 

Mr Hornby added that be 
believed building societies 
would have an advantage as 


developers in inner city areas 
because they were non-politi- 
cal and had the confidence of 
local councils, unlike some 
large commercial developers. 

The housing built by the 
Halifax’s new company would 
be partly for rent and partly 
for sale. The society already 
has a scheme to finance 
housing developments, which 
has so far produced more than 
1.500 new homes. 

Mr Hornby criticized the 
decay of inner cities, which he 
said was bad and getting 
worse. He added: “Urban 
renewal cannot simply be left 
to the marketplace; and if 
market forces alone will not 
solve the problem there can be 
no question of Government 
trying to hand over entirety to 
the private sector. Neither the 
Government nor the private 
sector alone can solve the 
problem." 


Franklin 
bust 
found in 
Yorkshire 

By Geraldine Norman 
Sale Room Correspondent 

An unknown marble por- 
trait bust of Benjamin Frank- 
lin, tbe American statesman, 
^dentist and philosopher, has 
come to light in tbe home of a 
Yorkshire innkeeper. 

Mr Patrick Crawley runs 
tbe Carpenters’ Arms at 
Felix kirk, near Thirst, He 
was given “Benjamin", as tbe 
statue is known by the family, 
wbeu be was aged eight by an 
old neighbour in Nottingham- 
shire. 

That was 31 years ago. Now 
it to be sold at Christie's, 
which has set a conservative 
estimate of £150,009 on the 
bust. Once the Americans get 
bidding, it will probably sell 
for a good deal more. 

The bust is tbe work of John 
Michael Rysbraclu one of the

Move to calm racial tension at school 


Education officials in Liver- 
pool yesterday moved to calm 
tensions at a comprehensive 
school where some senior 
pupils walked out alleging 
racial discrimination against 
white children. 

Mr Kenneth AntclifTe. the 
director of education, denied 
there were any serious racial 
undertones to the incident but 
admitted that efforts to ensure 
harmony between black and 
while children at the newly- 
amaigamated school had 
backfired". 

"We have to take the pro- 
cess of creating racial harmo- 
ny a little more sensitively. 
There does seem to be a fairly 
volatile situation". He said. 


By Peter 

“What parents and children 
told me certainly disturbed 
me but it is only 10 youngsters 
out of nearly 1.000 pupils. We 
will rake every step that we 
can to ensure that it does not 
happen again." 

Mr AniclitTe said that the 
trouble had begun with a 
dispute between two boys over 
a girl. Although it had in- 
volved black and white young- 
sters it was not a racial issue. 

Yesterday the 10 fifth-form 
white pupils at the University 
Community Comprehensive 
were taking lessons in a library 
on the campus. Education 
department officials said that 
if they persisted with their 
complaints about feeling 


Davenport 

threatened they would be 
moved to other schools. 

The pupils claimed there 
was "one rule for whites and 
another for blacks". They 
alleged that among new rules 
were instructions that a black- 
board must be called a chalk- 
board. that discos became 
reggae parties, that the school 
held two minutes silence for a 
man hanged in South Africa, 
and that library books had 
been racially censored. 

The school was formed by 
the amalgamation of three 
schools m a big reoganization 
in the city last September. 
There are about 140 black 
children at the school. 


The 10 pupils met educa- 
tion officials, governors and 
members of the local commu- 
nity relations council to voice 
their concerns and to ask for 
reassurances about their safe- 
ty. 


Moor chase 
charge 

John Ashley Edwards, aged 
25. of St Jude’s, Plymouth,

yesterday when he appeared 
before Tavistock magistrates, 
charged with assault and in- 
tent to rob a woman, after a 
helicopter and car chase across 
Dartmoor on Wednesday. 


Russian 

textbook 

shortage 

‘scandal’ 

By Lon- Hodges 

Education Correspondent 

Students of Russian, study- 
ing at school or university, an 
faced with a scandalous short 
age of good Russian text 
books, according to a surve; 
in today's Times Educations 
Supplement. 

There is almost nothing ti 
compare with the lively mate 
rials available for students o 
French, and the shortage exac 
erbaies the waning of Russian 
School teachers are stuck will 
a few traditional stalwarts 
such as the Penguin Russia 
Course, "dated, dull ant 
steeply graded”. 

In universities and poly 
technics, lecturers have u 
train a large proportion o 
Russian students from scratcl 
to make up for the seven 
shortage of entrants with O o 
A level. Mr Nicholas Brown. ; 
lecturer in Russian at ihi 
School of Slavonic and Eas 
European Studies at Londor 
University, says. 

A survey of 22 universiiie 
and polytechnics where Rus 
sian is taught from scratch ha: 
revealed that the most widefr 
used book is the Peneuit 
Russian Course, used at 12 o 
the institutions surveyed, anc 
published in 1955. Beyonc 
beginners* level, up to A leve- 
and beyond there has never 
been much available. Mi 
Brown says. 

Educational publisher?' 
attribute the dearth of gooc; 
Russian texts to inadequate 
demand which Mr Browr 
denies. . 

. The second most popular 
text in universities and poly- 
technics is Russkiy yazyk dlye 
(Russian for Everybody), 3 
Russian publication which 
sells more than 700 copies a 
year. “There is obviously 
more demand than publishers 
recognize", Mr Brown says. 

Meanwhile, many teachers 
rely on tbeir own 
materials.“Such individual 
enterprise has always been a 
feature of the Russian-leach- 
ing business.” 


Husband had to sleep in car 


Mr Jack Mouncey, a senior 
manager, was dominated in 
his £100,000 home by Ids wife, 
Maureen, who sometimes 
made him sleep in the car. 

Mrs Mouncey, aged 54, a 
teacher, took the view that he 
was “really a working-class 
boy who had made good and 
should be kept in his place", a 
divorce judge said yesterday. 

For Mr Mouncey. aged 56, 
Northern England district 
manager for Ford being kept 
in his place meant being 
locked out on occasions; sleep- 
ing on the living room couch; 


By a Staff Reporter 
never being allowed to use an 
upstairs bathroom or lavatory 
and not bring cooked for. 

Despite all that, when he 
returned to his home at 
Chelmsford Essex, for the 
weekend after working all 
week from his base in Harro- 
gate, North Yorkshire, the 
first thing be would do on 
Saturday mornings was take 
his wife tea and toast in bed 
Mr Justire Waterhouse said in 
the Family Division in Lon- 
don. 

He awarded Mr Mouncey, 


now of Elmwood Street Har- 
rogate. a divorce on the 
ground that he could no longer 
be expected to tolerate his 
wife’s behaviour. 

The judge said it was a sad 
case of a husband who 
became“a mere visitor to his 
own household” 

The marriage started to go 
down-bill and the couple had 
not had sexual intercourse 
since 1979, the judge said 
Mis Mouncey denied the 
allegations and contended that 
the 35-year marriage had not 
broken down. 


Sinclair claims £8m in 
orders for computer 


A microchip which can play 
music is one of the novel 
features of the blest computer 
from the Sinclair stable, which 
file company claims has at- 
tracted £8 million of re la ouch 
orders. 

The ZX Spectrum 128 is an 

enhanced version of the 
snccesfhi Spectrum Pins. It 
will be made by Timex in 
Dm) dee under contract to Sin- 
clair Research and is available 
from retailers at £179.99. 

According to Sir Clive Sin- 
clair, founder of tbe computer 
company, the financial prob- 
lems experienced by his group 
last year are now over, and 
about £10 million of a £15 
million debt has been repaid to 
his principal creditors, Tborn- 
Emi, Timex and AB Electron- 


ics, manufacturers of Sinclair 
products, along with Citibank 
and Barclays, tbe company’s 
bankers. 

Sinclair Research believes 
that tbe future of borne com- 
puting is rooted in entertain- 
ment and the success of the 
new machine depends on that 
strategy. A recent Gallop sur- 
vey disclosed that 62 per cent 
of borne computers are now 
used for games, an increase of 
nearly 20 per cent in two years. 

The new machine, however, 
is also meant to attract small 
business users. Later this year 
a portable machine the Pan- 
dora, is to be launched in 
Britain, aimed mainly at busi- 
nesses and drawing on flat-

BR moves 
to compete 
* on food 

British Rail is planning a 
reorganization of its catering, 
but yesterday strongly rejected 
suggestions that it is a move 
towards privatization. 

BR is to separate the train 
buffet and restaurant service 
from its £60 million Travellers 
Fare catering business. 

Private food companies al- 
ready operate on some main 
line stations, and one of BR's 
aims is to enable Travellers 
Fare to compete more effec- 
tively. 

“The existing Travellers 
Fare will remain very much a 
part of BR and there is no 
intention of sdling it, or 
privatizing h”, a spokesman 
said. 

Catering on trains wiD come 
under BR’s Inter-City section. 
Travellers Fare will continue 
to operate under the board led 
by Mr Bill Curry, managing 
director.

drug cases 

Serious drug offences rose

with 33 in 1984.

At least 110 Boeing 747

Aviation Administration. 

A spokesman for the Civil 
Aviation Authority said yes-

“The CAA and British Air- 
ways have also agreed to carry 
out more detailed checks on

PARLIAMENT FEBRUARY 13 1986 


Opinion polls 


Budget prospects 


Commentary 



THE ECONOMY 


A cautious and prudent 
budget was forecast by Mrs 
Thatcher the Prime Minister 
during questions in the Com- 
mons. In addition. Mr Nigel 
Lawson. Chancellor of the 
Exchequer, conceded when he 
was questioned that it was 
quite clear the scope for fiscal 
manoeuverine was limited by 
the shortfall in North Sea oil 
revenues. 

He indicated, however, that 
it would be highly desirable 
and beneficial for the economy 
and employment if the burden 

of taxation generally and in- 
come tax in particular could be 
removed. 

Mrs Thatcher’s comment 
came when Mr Michael Brown 
(Brigg and Oeethorpes, C) who 
said that if the Chancellor bad 
any roam tor manoeuvre in the 
Budget then for people on 
average earnings, particularly 
families and heads of house- 
holds. it would be better lo 
reduce the rates of lax rather 
than increase tax thresholds. 

Earlier some Conservative 
MPs had pressed the Chan- 
cellor to go instead for in- 
creased tax thresholds. 

Mrs Thatcher replied: I am 
sure we would like to be able to 
have the choice. In view of the 
falls in oil prices that have 
already taken place, we must 
above all have a prudent and 
cautious Budget 1 am sure the 
Chancellor will take into ac- 
count the choice Mr Brawn has 
recommended when he comes 
to have his Budget 
Mr Lawson also said during 
the exchanges that the substan- 
tial loss of North Sea oil 
revenue as a result of the sharp 
fall in oil prices was not an 
excuse for not raising tax 
thresholds but a fact 
Mr Alan Beith (Berwick- 
upon-Tweed. L): Has he recov- 
ered sufficiently from the threat 
to his tax cutting plans to 
recognize that there is an 


opportunity for manufacturing 
industry to export, so long as it 
is not penalized by high 
interest rates? 

Mr Lawson: There are 
swings and roundabouts when 
oil prices fall. One of the things 
that suffers is the scope for 
reduction in taxation; one of 
the beneficiaries is industry, 
and in particular manufac- 
turing industry, whose fuel 
costs are diminished. 

Mr Ralph Howell (North 
Norfolk, C): Many Conser- 
vative MPs are becoming • 
increasingly impatient for large quite the contrary, 
tax cuts. We hope that the fall , Labour front bench which is in 


Mr Dale Cam p beB-Sa vottrs 
(Workington. Lab): Does not 
the fall in oil prices only serve 
to confirm Labour policies 
over these last five years that 
far too much reliance has been 
placed on the development of 
oil in the North Sea and far too 
little on the development of 
manufacturing industry within 
the United Kingdom? 

Why cannot the Chancellor 
learn that lesson and even at 
this late stage begin to reinvest 
in British industry? 

Mr Lawson: The position is 
quite the contrary. It is the 


in oil prices will not be used as 
an excuse for not raising tax 
thresholds very considerably. 
The only way we will be able to 
find the elbow room for 
substantial tax cuts is by- 
reducing overmanning in the 
public sector, particularly in 
local government and the 
health service. 

Mr Lawson paid tribute to 
the consistent campaign be had 
waged over many years for the 
reduction of overmanning and 
waste in the public sector. We 



must 

that.

favour of joining forces with 
Opcc cartel to keep up the 
price of oil artificially. That 
would be contrary- to the 
interests of manufacturing in- 
dustry. 

Mr fan Lloyd (Havant, O 
referred to the Government's 
effective, well judged and 
above all sustained desire not 
to join Opec in any sense 
whatever. 

Nothing more damages the 
capacity of a free market to 
adjust to changing conditions 
or supply and demand, (be 
said) than any attempt to 
maintain either fixed supply 
levels or fixed prices. 

Mr Lawson: He is right. It is 
not only the policy of the 
Labour Opposition that we 
should join forces with Opec 
but the official policy of the 
SDP and the Liberal party. We 
have no intention whatever of 
joining. 

Sir Peter TapseO (Lindsey 
East. O: It is somewhat 
irrelevant how many British 
political parties want to join 
Opec since one of the qualifica- 
tions is that SO per cent of 
gross national income should 
be from oil and we have not 
yet reached that point. 

Mr Lawson: The Opposition 
wish to agree with Opec in 
cutting back oil production 
which is effectively to join the 
cartel, although technically we 
would not be eligible for 
membership. 


Labour 
urges 
debate on 
Wapping 


THE PRESS 


Thatcher interested only in 
result of one opinion poll 


PM’S QUESTIONS 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher the 
Prime Minister, described what 
she called “the outlook of a 
caring Government" ' during 
question time in the Com- 
mons. listing the improve- 
ments made under her 
leadership. 

Her defence began after Mr 
Roy Hattersley. chief 
Oppostion spokesman on Trea- 
sury and economic affairs, 
asked her to explain the Gallop 
survey that showed that only 6 
per cent of the population 
thought of her as a caring 
Prime Minister. 

Mrs Thatcher: I do not look 
at opinion polls (prolonged 
Labour cheers). I do not 
explain them. The only polls I 
am interested in are those on 
election day and we have not 
done too badly over those. 
{Conservative cheers). 

Mr Hattersley; is she too 
reticent to offer an explana- 
tion? May l suggest as the 
reason the country believes she 
does not care is because she has 
presided over a Government 
which has seen unemployment 
treble, poverty double, in- 
creased homelessness, cuts in 
overseas aid and £2.50 stolen 
each week from the pensioners. 

Mrs Thatcher f have pre- 
sided over a Government in 
which the health service is far 
better, there has been an 
increase to pensioners, output 
is at an aU-iime record leveL 
manufacturing industry is 
growing and the growth has 
been going on for six successive 
years. That is the outlook of a 
caring Government. 

Mr Hattersley: Referring to 
the Government's uncaring 


policies and stvieJs she pre- 
pared to answer any one of the 
facts I offered her? 

Mrs Thatcher: I will deal 
with the facts he offered, or at 
least with his interpretation of 
them. He has no idea of how to 
go about wealth creation or 
creating more jobs. We have 
the highest ana best record in 
job creation in the whole of 
Europe over the last two years. 



Gould: Did she see 
Walker's speech? 

Mr Bryan Gould (Dagenham 
Lab), among the interesting 
speeches made by her col- 
leagues and would be succes- 
sors in Blackpool last weekend 
did she notice the passage in 
the speech by Mr Peter Walker. 
Secretary of State for Energy, in 
which he asserted that un- 
employment can be brought 
down provided appropriate 
policies are pursued? 

Is there such an alternative 
after all and why does the 
Prime Minister not lake it? 

Mrs Thatcher Unemploy- 
ment can be brought down by 
the creation of more jobs there 
have been 700,000 more jobs 
created in the last two years: 


That is the way to tackle the 
problem. The proportion of the 
population of working age in 
work in the country greatly 
exceeds that in France. Ger- 
many and other countries. 

Mr Kenneth Carlisle (Lin- 
coln. CL The recent fall in oil 
prices is an opportunity for this 
country rather than a mis- 
fortune. Will it not lead to 
greater economic activity and 
growing markets and a chal- 
lenge our manufacturing in- 
dustry must welcome. 

Mis Thatcher; Yes, it is an 
opportunity but it has other 
adverse effects on this country 
which it does not have on 
competitors such as the United 
States, Japan and Germany. 

They will gain more from a 
fiill in oil prices than we shall 
but undoubtedly it will be 
helpful to our manufacturing 
industries it will reduce their 
costs. 

Unit labour costs must be 
kept down otherwise the Ger- 
mans and Japanese will get a 
bigger proportion of overseas 
trade than we shall 

Dr Oonagfa McDonald 
(Thurrock. Lab): Does the 
Prime Minister agree with Mr 
Francis Pym, one of her former 
Cabinet colleagues that in 
terms of curing unemployment 
her policy is not working? 

Mrs Thatcher Had there 
been the policies put forward 
by the opposition and carried 
into effect, unemployment 
would be infinitely worse than 
it is 

Parliament today 

Commons (9.30): Surcharge and 
Disqualification of Councillors 
(Abolition) BilLsecond reading 
and other private Members' 
Bills. 


Mrs Margaret Thatcher the 
Prime Minister, congratulated 
The Times during Commons 
questioning for what she called 
an extremely sensible leading 
article that day on her achieve- 
ments in office. 

She had been asked by Mr 
John Stokes (Halesowen and 
Stourbridge, CL has she had 
time to read today's excellent 
leader in The Times setting out 
her achievements and pointing 
out that still more needs to be 
done under her leadership? 

Does this not show that in 
spile of what other newspapers 
and other commentators have 
said during the last two weeks. 
The Times still has a dear 
sense of political priorities? 
(Laughter) 

Later during questions on 
future business, Mr Martin 
O'Neill (Clackmannan. Lab) 
sought a debate on the implica- 
tions of the legal actions as a 
result of the dispute aL 
Wapping. 

Could the Government make 
dear (he asked) if it was their 
intention under the 1980 Act 
that people on strike can be 
summarily dismissed with 
complete loss of privileges? 

Mr John Biffen, Leader of 
the Commons, said he would 
prefer to check whether the 
matter was sub judioe before 
making a more considered 
answer, but noted the request 
Mr Dennis Skinner 
(Bolsover. Lab) said it seems 
strange that Ministers like Mr 
Kenneth Clarke, the Paymaster 
General, could appear regularly 
on television and radio and 
discuss Mr Murdoch's sackings 
and Fortress Wapping. yet 
Parliament could not debate 
the whole affair because of the 
sub judice rule. 

It is high time (he said) that 
this vindictive act of Murdoch, 
an American citizen who could 
not get away with what he has 
done in this country if it was in 
America, should be debated 
here so that the matter can be 
thrashed ouL 

Vindictive acts were being 
waged by employers just be- 
cause workers were standing 
together and joining in collec- 
tive action. This is OK for the 
bosses (he added) but not for 
the workers under this Govern- 
ment. 

Mr Biffen replied that he had 
answered Mr O'Neill as he had 
because Mr O' Neill's question 
invited comment, and the 
answer might infringe the sub 
judioe rale. He wanted to lake 
advice. He would refer the 
request for a wider debate on 
Mr Murdoch's newspapers to 
Mr Paul Channon, Secretary of 
State for Trade and Industry. 


Lawson resists 
call for economic 
s ummi t meeting 


INTEREST RATES 


Chancellor 
urged to cut 
interest rates 

Mr Nigel Lawson, Chan- 
cellor of the Exchequer was 
urged during Commons ques- 
tions to seek an urgent meeting 
of the Group of Five, the 
grouping of major economic 
nations, and lo uige a reduc- 
tion of interest rales to boost 
British industry. 

The plea came from Mr 
Douglas Hoyle (Warrington 
North, Lab). He also called for 
discussions on international 
debts which he said were 
having a disastrous effect on 
the world's economy, particu- 
larly that of developing na- 
tions. 

Mr Lawson said inter- 
national debt would be dis- 
cussed further at the spring 
meeting of the interim commit- 
tee of the International Mone- 
tary Fund in ApriL 
The general view on interest 
rates (he said), is that as 
inflation comes down world- 
wide, that will assist the 
progress in getting interest rates 
down. 


Pressure on interest rates 
would be very much less if 
w age increases were lower, Mr 

Nigd Lawson, Chancellor of 
the Exchequer said during 
Commons questions. 

Mr Ian Wrleglesworth 
(Stockton South. SDP) urged 
the Chancellor to respond 
positively to President 
Reagan's initia tive in calling 
for international monetary re- 
form. Would Mr Lawson 
cooperate with the United 
States Administration in seek- 
ing to bring interest rates down 
and to get more stable ex- 
change rates? 

Mr Lawson replied: 1 did 
notice the passage in President 
agan '5 State of the Union 
address in which he asked the 
US Treasury Secretary to see 
whether it would be a good 
idea to hold an International 
monetary conference. 

I think there are great 
dangers in holding an inter- 
national monetary conference 
when you do not know what 
proposals you are going to put 
to that conference. But if there 
are ways of building on the 
plaza agreement in which we 
can inject a high degree of 
stability into the exchange 
market then 1 would welcome 
it. 

Mr Thomas Sackrilk (Bol- 
ton West, C): There is a 
widespread desire for lower 
interest rates and a lack of 
public understanding as to why 
interest rates remain so high. 

Mr Lawson: Everybody 
would like to see lower interest 
rates, except those who are 
savers and depositors in build- 
ing societies and banks. It is a 
great deal better to get that real 
return than to be cheated of 
their savings as they were 
under the Labour Government 
when there was a negative rate 
of return. 

Mr James Lamond (Oldham

there any lines of communica- 
tion between the Treasury, the

and the Department of Trade

like the north west 
whixfa are dependent on manu- 
facturing industry. He lives in a 

complacent world. 

Mr Lawson: The Govern- 
ment is one harmonious whole. 
(Labour laughter and interrup- 
tions.) Unemployment is not a 
matter for complacency but 
concern and that is why the 
Government has taken a very 
Urge number of measures in 
order to address this problem 
directly. 

In my Budget last year I 
restructured national insurance 
contributions for employees 
and employers for the lowest 
paid. That only came in four 
months ago and it has not had 
time to have its frill effect. I 
also announced the two year 
Youth Training Scheme and 
that will not come into force 
until April when I believe it 
will have a very beneficial 
effed- 

Mr Timothy Yeo (Suffolk 
South. CL An absolute pre- 
condition for lower interest 
rates is a sustained low rate of 
inflation and if the rate of 
inflation fells to 3 per cent in 
the course of this year there 
will be a very good prospect of 
reducing interest rates in con- 
trast to the effect the policies of 
Labour and the Alliance would 
have. 

Mr Lawson: He is right. The 
policies the Opposition propose 
would mean an extra £24 
billion on public expenditure, 
which wodld cause a substan- 
tia) increase in taxation and a 
VAT rate of 41 per cent and 
would be highly inflationary 
and would certainly mean 
higher interest rates. 

There is a concern in the 
markets that our unit labour 
costs are rising fester than in 
other countries and we may be 
performing less competitively 
and that puts pressure on the 
pound and requires interest 
rales to be higher than they 
otherwise would be.

Whitelaw check 
on airport figures 


STANSTED 


Viscount Whitelaw, Lord Presi- 
dent of the Council and Leader 
of the House of Lords, has 
agreed to look into an accusa- 
tion that the Government has 
given inaccurate information to 
the House of Lords in response 
to oral and written questions 
on Stan sled Airport 
The issue was raised by Lady 
Burton of Coventry (SDP) 
during question time in the 
House of Lords when she asked 
the Earl of Caithness. Under 
Secretary of State for Trans- 
port. about the airport. 

Indy Burton of Coventry; 
The' minister inadvertently 
misled the House on January 
16 when he said the passenger 
throughput at Stansted was one 
million whereas the number is 
half that, 513,000 to be exact. 

I am extremely worried 
about answers given concern- 
ing Stansted although we have 
a certain grain of information, 
can the minister fell the House 
why the Government is so 
reluctant to give the House 
information concerning this 
airport? 

Does it mean the Govern- 
ment is aware of its position in 
that the inevitable susidisation 
of Stansted in the years to 
come must inevitably be to the 
disadvantage of the develop- 
ment of regional airports? 

The Earl of Caithness: I may 
have inadvertently misled the 
House. The capacity of 
Stansted is 1 million but the 
throughput is half a minion. 

k nn rpliirtanrp on iKw 


part of the Government to give 
information on Stansted. A 
project of this size is bound to 
lose money initially before it 
gets into gear and this win not 
effect regional airports. 

Lady Barton of Coventry: 
The word capacity was in- 
troduced as a face saver. It had 
never been mentioned in the 
question. Furthermore, the fig- 
ure he has given is not correct 
The capacity was two million 
not one million in February 
last year without any develop- 
ment at alL I have got very 
tired of this inaccurate 
information, it is not good 
enough and the people con- 
cerned should look at it ’before 
giving answers even to written 
questions. 

The Etui of Caithness: She 
disputes the figures that my 
Department has given me, I 
can only stand by what my 
Department gives me if it says 
the present capacity at Stansted 
is I million. 

Burton of Coventry: I 
to the Leader of the 
House on this matter. I have 
here a perfectly good case ana I 
want the Leader u> look at ft. 
He will see 1 have accused the 
Government and the unfortu- 
nate Minister of giving inaccu- 
rate information not only at 
Question Time but in written 
answers also. I have substan- 
tiated that and I think I am 
correct 

It is a disgrace and (he 
Leader should look at it to bdp 
poor suffering backbenchers. 

Visconnt Whitelaw: Of 
course I will look into that with 
the Earl of Caithness. I know 
he has given the information in 
snnri faiih and I nanri hv rhm 


Mr Alan Clark. Minister for 
Trade, made h dear in opening 
a Commons debate on the 
Multi-Fibre Arrangement, that 
he had no Intention of 
rid of it until he was 
that the need for the safeguards 
it provided had ceased to exist. 

He said most co m pe ti tions 
came from within the Euro- 
pean Community and Commu- 
nity supplies now entered free 
of all restraint So, after Ibe end 

of 1989, would supplies from 
Spain and Portugal, and thns 
some of the most formidable 
low cost competitors would 
have free access to the British 
market. 

ft was the Community and 
not individual member states 
which negotiated on the 
Community's external trade 
policy. It was through the 
Community that the United 
Kingdom would be negotiating 
in the GATT to renew the 
MFA. 

Mr Nicholas W interton 
(Macclesfield, C) asked if he 
would try to ensure that before 
he negotiated finally a mandate 
with the Community this 
maner would come to the 
House again so that the House 
and not just the Minister could 
seek to represent the interests 
of the British people. 

Mr Clarke said the debate 
was a step in that direction. At 
a later stage, when the mandate 
was in a more tangible form, it 
ghl be appro priat 
mse to take another look at 
it. 

In the long ran. the future of 
the MFA and the integration of 
the newly industrialised coun- 
tries into the GATT system 
were very simila r issues. The 
Community must be willing to 
negotiate these two issues 
together in the new GATT 
round and must make this 
dear to the developing world 
when it sought an extension of 
GATT later this year. 

The Government's first 
objective was to seek renewal 
of the arrangement for a 
further transitional period be- 
cause it was inappropriate to 
dispense with its safeguards 
with a sudden jolt. Those- 
safeguards must be niaintamgft. 

SrtSTtBSTS I confident vigour 



industry that needed It most 
The second objective was to 
consider liberalisation in some 
areas such as chil dren's dothes. 

Let me set this (he said) in 
the context of free trade versus 
protectionism. I do not see 
these as mutually exclusive 
alternatives which predude any 
other approach. 1 recognise that 
the attainment of a genuinely 
free trade society is an ad- 
mirable long term objective. 

But Governments have to 
live in the real world where 
free trade, like unilateral 
disarmament is fine if every- 
body else is doing ft. But if you 
try to achieve it by example 
alone it may be dangerous or 
even damaging. 

On the other band (be went 
on) the hard-headed bargain of 
reciprocal advantage and con- 
cession in an atmosphere of 
mutual respect is utterly dif- 
ferent from protectionism. 

Any Government which ig- 
nores this principle in obei- 
sance to sonte abstract credo - 
and is it ignored by our 
principal trade competitors? 
The Japanese and French are 
arch practitioners of this doc- 
trine - any Government which 
ignores this is in derogation of 
its duty to its own people. 

Mr Bryan Gould, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman on Trade and 
Industry, said the outcome of 
these negotiations mattered 
crucially to nearly half a 
million employees in the UK. 
No responsible Government 
should gamble with their jobs. 

Labour MPs‘ were deter- 
mined that what had happened 
to Britain's car, helicopter and 
other industries would not 
finally happen to the textile 
industry. Here the threat -was 
not of someone from abroad 
buying up the best and juciest 
bits; the threat was of an 
industry fading away and being 
ground down by the rising tide 
of imports. 

I There was a suspicion that the 
European Commission, per- 
haps for reasons of admin- 
istrative convenience, was 
pressing ahead with the nego- 
tiations much sooner than was 
truely in Britain’s interests. 

Rumours persisted that Brit- 
ish officials in Brussels were in 
the van of those wanting to 
liberalize the MFA. MPs 
needed assurances that these 
officials were not under min- 
isterial instructions and would 
be brought to bed. 

Had the Government done 
any job assessment, because 
the country could not afford 
any further job losses in the 
hard-pressed textiles industry. 

Labour did not expect ex- 
cuses about the difficulty of 
n^otiating in Brussels. Mr 
Gark bad every opportunity to 
fight far the national interests 
and for the textiles industry. 


Having heard him deliver- 
ing a set speech, answering 
questions and talcing part in 
two extended private discus- 
sions, I would judge him to be 
a vigorous and confident cam- 
paigner. The keynote of his 
approach is optimism. He is m 
the tradition of the American 
can-do potitidan. 

That is particularly evident 
in his approach to economic 
policy. Essentially be is a 
right-wing expansionist This 
pots him in a rather different 
category from both Mr Rea- 
gan and Mrs Thatcher. Like 
them, he accords a high 
priority to catting personal 
taxes. Bnt he is not so con- 
cerned as they are about 
budget deficits. 

President Reagan has re- 
peatedly perplexed friends and ; 
critics alike by his refusal to 
choose between incompatible ! 
policies. He has gone Cor lower 
taxes, higher defence spending ! 
and moves towards a balanced 
budget. He is therefore in 

Hflvgw of finding f f ift the 

Gramm-Radman-Hollings • 
legislation, which he backed, * 
will force sharp cats in defence '

Labour’s 
worry on 
GCSE 
date 

By Lucy Hodges 
Education Correspondent 

The Government should 
reconsider whether the new 
GCSE examination to replace 
O levels and CSE should begin 
as planned this September. Mr 
Giles Radice. Labour's educa- 
tion spokesman, said yester- 
day. 

Many pupils, parents and 
employers were worried about 
the state of readiness for tbe 
new examination courses 
which begin in the autumn, be 
said in a letter to Sir Keith 
Joseph, Secretary of Stale for 
Education and Science. 

Mr Radice's move comes 
after mounting concern about 
whether teachers and pupils 
will be adequately prepared 
for the GCSE given the speed 
with which it is being intro- 
duced and the continuing 
boycott by the two biggest 
leaching unions of training for 
the new examination. 

A number of local educa- 
tion authorities are calling for 
the examination to be post- 
poned. 

“It is vital for tbe success of 
the new examination that it 
enjoys a high level of public 
reliability". Mr Radice told 
Sir Keith. 

Sir Keith reiterated last 
week that the Government 
was determined to go ahead.

By Philip Howard 
Literary Editor 

The 1985 W.H. Smith 
literary award of £4,000 has 
been won by Doris T /wring 
for her novel The Good 
Terrorist. 

It is the story of a middle- 
aged, middle-class woman 
who acts as a kind of house 
mother for singularly inept 
young revolutionaries and 
squatters in the seedy parts of 
London. 

For some of ns it is a 
welcome re-entry from outer 
space (where her recent 
novels have been set) to the 
new world all around us 
today. 

The Good Terrorist was on 
the short list for last year's 
Booker Prize, and a favourite 
for the Whitbread Prize., -An 
advantage of the WJL Smith 
award, which is given to a 
distinguished literary book of

Rethink 
on benefit 
appeals 

By Nicholas Timmins 

Social security ministers are 
considering strengthening 
claimants' rights of appeal 
under the new Social Fund, to 
be introduced in 1988 when 
existing single payments will 
be abolished for the 4.7 mil- 
lion people who c laim supple- 
mentary benefit 
More than 3 million single 
payments— for items such as 
furniture and cookers— are 
made every year, but under 
the Social Fund these will 
become loans instead of grants 
and claimants will lose their 
right of appeal to an indepen- 
dent tribunal if a loan is 
refused. 

The Joss of that right has 
been severely criticized by 
welfare commentators, -the 
poverty lobby and the Council 
on Tribunals. 

Under government propos- 
als the only form of appeal will 
be a further review of the case 
by the official who made the 
original decision, followed by 
a review by a more senior 
DHSS official, probably in the 
same office. 

Ministers are considering 
strengthening the system, for 
example by setting up the 
internal appeals at regional 
level, further away from the 
local office where the decision 
is made. They have not ruled 
out an independent dement in 
the appeal 

The feet that people will be 
appealing over a loan rather 
than a grant may persuade 
ministers that appeals will be 
fewer claimants are likely to 
appeal over a loan only if they 
really need tbe moDey.In the 
last year for which figures are 
available there were more 
than 35.000 appeals.

MP calls 
for report 


A Conservative MP yester- 
day called on the Home 
Secretary io prepare a full 
report on allegations of the 
existence of child brothels in 
Islington, north London. 

Mr Geoffrey Dickens. MP 
for Littleborough and 
Saddlewonh. said he had giv- 
en Scotland Yard informa- 
tion. 

It was now investigating 
claims that such brothels v-cre 
being run on an estate in the 
Archway district, he said. 

Mr Dickens said: "My in- 
formant whose name 1 shall, 
of course, keep secret, has told 
me that some 40 children are 
involved. 

“He has passed on to Scot- 
land Yard tapes purporting to 
depict the voices of children 
clearly taking part in 
unsavoury activities. 

"Scotland Yard has told me 
it is treating these allegations 
seriously. I hope that urgent 
action will be taken to stamp 
out this evil trade." 

For the past five years. Mr 
Dickens has been leading z 
campaign to SLamp out sexual 
abuse of children.

Bleak outlook forecast 
for long-term jobless 


A bleak future for tbe long- 
term unemployed is forecast 
by the Manpower Services 
Commission today. 

In its draft corporate plan 
up to 1990, the commission 
4 says that early in the period 
there will be a levelling off in 
the number of those unem- 
ployed for more than a year, 
but the number unemployed 
for more than three years will 
continue to grow. 

“In the short term the 
economic outlook remains 
one of continued, if possibly 


more modest, output and 
employment growth", the 
commission says. 

The unemployment rate 
among those aged 18 to 24 is 
likely to remain high, although 
MSC programmes will make a 
contribution to alleviating the 
effect of high unemployment 
on worst-affected groups. 

The plan has been submit- 
ted to Lord Young, Secretary 
of Stale for Employment, for 
approval, and to tbe Com- 
mons Select Committee on

Council starts 
fixed-price 
funeral service

claimed to be the first of its 
kind in Britain, is to be started 
next week by Lambeth Council 
in London, with a fixed price, 
about half that charged by 
private companies. 

The coancfi has signed a

The Iraqis immediately 
countered this claim with an 
^ually ominous allegation 
irom their Information Minis- 
ter. Mr Latif Nsayef. that the 
Iranians had themselves been 
using chemical weapons and 
raai ‘Ihis criminal act will not 
go unpunished”. 

The gravity of Iran’s new 
offensive - and the degree to 
which it has aggravated the 
anxiety of the neighbouring 
Arab states — was illustrated 
yesterday when the Arab for- 
eign ministers who had hur- 
riedly met in Baghdad on 
Wednesday calledfbr an ar-

and Iraq itself, said that the 
Iranian offensive now

Their appeal, however, is

suits. The Iranians, have all 
along contended that they will 
only agree to a ceasefire when 
President Saddam Husain of 
Iraq has been overthrown. 
Besides, Tehran Government 
leaders were yesterday fer 
more concerned to publicize 
further claims of Iranian vic- 
tories. and Iraqi gas attacks 
upon their men, than to talk of 
an armistice. 

According to Tehran, at 
least 17 Iranian soldiers have 
died from Iraqi chemical 
weapons this week and — a 
much more sombre figure — as 
many as 1 ,500 Iranians may 
have suffered in poison gas 
attacks. 

On the ground, the Iraqis 
have cut the attacking Iranian 
forces into two, using com-

Diplomats in' Bagh dad, 
meanwhile, say that Iraqi jets 
haw carpet-bombed the sec- 
ond Iranian force funher 
south, near the village of Siba, 
and used helicopter gunships 
to prevent its re-supply from 
the east bank of the river. 

The Iraqis are already 
aware, however, of some awe- 
some logistics. For this is not 
the massive offensive against 
their country which the Irani- 
ans have been promising: only 
85,000 Iranian troops — ap- 
proximately six divisions — 
are at present in combat, while 
a further 27 Iranian divisions 
are still massed opposite the 
Iraqi southern front lines. 
This means that 400.000 Ira- 
nian troops have not yet been 
committed to battle. 

If they are used south of 
Basra in the coming 48 hours, 
then Iraq’s counter-offensive 
could prove worthless. And if 
they are not used to prop up 
the new beachhead, where do 
the Iranians intend to strike? 



Libyan jets in war 
of nerves with US 

From Michael Binyon, Washington 


As the US Navy resumed its 
exercises off the Libyan Coast, 

the Pentagon revealed that US 
carrier planes and Libyan 
fighter aircraft had more than 
25 encounters over the Medi- 
terranean on Tuesday. 

No hostilities took place. 
The incidents were outside the 
area claimed by the Libyan 
leader. Colonel Gadaffi, as 
territorial air space, and the 
Pentagon described the inter- 
ceptions as routine. 

Bast the incidents point to 
the high state of tension north 
of the Gulf of State, where the 
two US carrier task forces are 
now conducting highly risible 
operations. 

The US fighters which 
made the interceptions flew 
from the carriers Coral Sea 
ami Saratoga as part of flight 
operations that began os 
Tuesday and riU end on 
Saturday.

Mr Andrfla Artnkovic, the

or in the Croatian puppet 
Government, whose extradi- 
tion fer mass murder of Serbs 
and Jews had been sought by 
Belgrade for more than 3® 
years, has been flown into

An ailing man of 86, he was 
taken on a stretcher to a prison 
hospital to await trial ou 
charges of war crimes against 

prisoners of war and drifians. 

As Minister of the Interior 
in the independent Croatian 
state set up after Yugoslavia 
was dismembered by Germany 
in 1941, be was directly re- 
sponsible for mass murders of 
the Serbs aad Jews as part of 
the ethnic and racial policy of 
the Quisling government. 

At the end of the war be fled

As soon as the United

his appeal against extradition 
he was secretly flown cot on a

Gut-price 
ships on 
way out 

From Aba McGregor 
Geneva 

The phasing out of sab- 
standard vessels sailto g under 
flags of convenience with cut- 
price crews and minimal re- 
gard for safety standards has 
started with the signing of the 
final act of the UN convention 
on conditions for ship regis- 
tration. . 

Negotiations on the con- 
vention, under theauspices of 
the UN Conference, on Trade 
and -Development had been 
under way for a decade. 
Agreed by more than 100 
governments, including West- 
ern ship-owning and Soviet 
bloc countries, it will come 
into force when ratified by 40 
states controlling at least 25 
per cent of wood shipping 
tonnage 


The conference chairman. 
Mr Lamine Fadika (Ivory 
Coast),said be believed this 
could be within five years. 

The new regulations are 
aimed at es tablishing a legal 
“genuine link” between a 
vessel's country of registration 
and its real owner, -forcing 
shady operators out of busi- 
ness. A third of merchant 
shipping is open-registered, 
almost 80 per cent of it in 
Liberia and Panama. 

The convention .also, re- 
quires “a satisfactory part” of 
a- crew to be nationals of the 
registration state or domiciled 
there. It spells out legal and 
financial liabilities and insur- 
ance requirements, including 
cover for third parties. 

Developing countries tod 
initially pressed for the ending 
of- the nags of convenience 
system. They regard the con- 
vention as a compromise .

THE TIMES FRIDAY FEBRUARY 14 1986 


Slabbert deputy follows his leader 


Second MP quits in Pretoria 


From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 


Another senior member of 
the white opposition in the 
South African Parliament has 
decided to resign in disillu- 
sionment over the slow pace 
.of constitutional chance and 
the Government's refusal to 
abandon apartheid 

He is Dr Alex Boraine, 
chairman of the Federal 
Council of the Progressive 
Federal Party iPFPl. whose 
leader. Dr Frederik Van Zyl 
Slabbert. resigned last Friday, 
alter pronouncing the Parlia- 
ment "a grotesque ritual of 
irrelevance". 

Dr Boraine. who had been 
regarded as one of the con- 
tenders to succeed Dr 
Slabbert told a press confer- 
ence in Cape Town yesterday 
that he hoped he could now 
play a role as “3n honest 
broker" between Parliament 









Dr Alex Boraine after 
announcing his resignation, 
and extra- parliamentary op- 
ponents of the Government. 

Dr Boraine said the resigna- 
tion of Dr Slabbert a close 
friend and colleague, had in- 
fluenced his own decision, but 
it had "been more a matter of 
something crystallizing which 
has been in my mind and 
heart for a long while”. 


He added that he hoped to 
strengthen ties with groups 
such as the United Democrat- 
ic Front (UDF). although it 
would be “up to them” to 
decide whether there was a 
specific role he could play. 

The UDF. a loose coalition 
of anti-apartheid groups, is 
regarded by the Government 
as a front for the outlawed 
African National Congress 
and many of its leaders and 
rank-and-file members have 
been detained under emergen- 
cy regulations in the past six 
months. 

Dr Boraine said that there 
was still a place for conven- 
tional opposition within Par- 
liament. but it was pressure 
from outside Parliament and 
from abroad, as well as eco- 
nomic pressure, which had 
brought about such changes as 
had occurred. 

The resignations of Dr 
Slabbert and Dr Boraine have 


seriously weakened the PFP. 
and cast a shadow over those 
who have elected to continue 
working inside Parliament 

They an: both widely re- 
spected abroad, and their | 
judgment that the Govern- . 
men! has no intention of 
abandoning apartheid must 
make it much more difficult 
for Pretoria to convince the 
outside world that its reforms 
have any real substance. 

Before the resignations, the 
PFP held 27 of the 1 78 seats in 
the House of the Assembly, 
the White Chamber of Parlia- 
ment which has separate 
houses for Indians and 
Coloureds. 

The roling National Party 
has 127 seats,' two extreme 
right-wing parties have 19 
seats between them, and the 
New Republic Party, whose 
views are scarcely distinguish- 
able from those of the Govern- 
ment has five.

Philippine election chaos 


Pik Botha’s Geneva talks 


qrnno campaign 
of civil unrest 


From Da rid Watts. Manila 


From Michael Hornsby 


The Philippines opposition 
is to launch a campaign of non- 
violent ciril disobedience this 
weekend, starting with an 
, important rally on Sonday to 
be addressed by Mrs Corazon 
. Aquino, who calls herself pres- 
• idem-elect. 

The campaign will include 
- work slow-downs, sit-down 
demi,nsrrarions. boycotts of 
government newspapers and 
' non-payment of taxes. 

Mr Butz Aquino. Mrs 
Aquino's brother-in-law, told 
The Times that be thought the 
campaign could bring down 
President Marcos in six 
months. Bnt the emphasis will 
he on non-violent, peaceful 
' demonstrations. Mr Aquino 
said chat if the opposition 
continued to tack solid support 
from the United States, -we’ll 
just have to kiss the Ameri- 
cans goodbye. Its rime the 
Philippines started to stand on 
its own feet anyway**. 

The campaign is expected to 
be endorsed by a conference of 
'the Catholic bishops of the 
' Philippines which started yes- 
terday. The conference jk like- 
:iv to issue a pastoral letter at 
;is» conclusion which wiii'pffer 
"dose support to Mrs Aquino. 
’She has been in close touch 
with Cardinal Sin since the 


start of her campaign. 

Mrs Aquino went to Manila 
airport during the afternoon to 
receive the body of Mr Evelio 
Javier, which was brought 
back from the provincial capi- 
tal of .Antique, where he was 
shot dead by four masked 
gunmen. His body was taken 
in a motorcade to the Bactaran 
Redemptorist Cbnrcb . 

The congregation broke into 
applause when Mrs Aquino 
was greeted and referred to as 
president. 

® WASHINGTON: Sena- 
tor Richard Lugar, who head- 
ed a Congressional observer 
ream at the Philippines elec- 
tion, said he would support a 
cot in economic and military 
aid if the vote was found to be 
fraudulent (Michael Binyon 
writes). 

Senator Lugar. Republican 
chairman of the Senate For- 
eign Relations Committee. : 
said in Indiana (bat Congress 
would probably deny farther 
assistance to the Philippines if 
the election w*i “fatally 
flawed”. His comments fiy in 
the race of the 
Administration's insistence 
that military aid to Manila 

must continue 'whatever the 
outcome of the election. 


A new plan to try to break 
the stalemate over indepen- 
dence for South African-occu- 
pied Namibia is understood 
here to have been one of the 
mjin topics of talks in Geneva 
this week between Mr R.F. 
"Pik" Botha, the South Afri- 
can Foreign Minister, and Dr 
Chester Crocker, the Ameri- 
can Assistant Secretary of 
Slate for African Affairs.' 

There is also speculation 
that Mr Botha may be pursu- 
ing with the Americans the 
possibility of a “package deal" 
involving the release front jail 
of Mr Nelson Mandela, leader 
of the outlawed African Na- 
tional Congress. 

Another purpose of the visit 
is thought to be to brief the 
Swiss and other European 
Governments on Pretoria's 
1 reform programme in advance 
of an important meeting in 
London on February 20 of 
Western bankers to consider 
new proposals for re-schedul- 
ing South Africa's short-term 
debts. 

A former governor of the 
Swiss Central Bank. Dr Fritz 
Leuiwiler. has been acting as 
mediator between South Afri- 
ca and the creditor banks.

Hard edge to Haiti’s joy 


From Trevor FtshJock, Port-au-Prince 

The mansion of one of they branded as Dnvalieris&. the DnvaGer years. The stat- 


Gcncva has not been officially 
confirmed here. 

According to diplomatic 
sources here. Mr Botha today 
will meet the Dutch Foreign 
Minister, representing the 12 
EEC member states. The 
meeting was requested by Mr 
Botha, who is likely to be 
pressed lo spell out in more 
detail what plans Pretoria has 
for extending political rights 
lo black Africans. 

The new move on Namibia 
is understood lo involve set- 
ting a date for the implemen- 
tation of the UN Security 
Council Resolution 435. 
passed in 1978. which pro- 
vides for a UN-supervized 
ceasefire in Namibia, followed 
by elections and the territory's 
independence. Mr Botha said 
in a statement he was not 
aware of any decision to set a 
dale but did not deny it could 
be under discussion. 

There has been little official 
comment here on Mr Botha's 
Swiss visit. It was announced, 
however, that yesterday morn- 
ing he met Mr Jean-Pierre 
Hocke. the UN High Commis- 
sioner for Refugees, about the 
“increased influx" of refugees 
from South Africa's neigh- 
bours. particularly Mozam- 
bique. 


Haiti's noted artists lay a 
smouldering rain in Port-aa-

sumed to have been burnt as a

1 young people gathered in the

presidential palace. 

They were noisy and high 
spirited. Their gathering was 
part carnival part demonstra- 
tion. It was an exuberant 
celebration of the end of the 
29-year role of Papa Doc and 
Baby Doc Dnvatier. The peo- 
ple danced and sang and 
waved pafan branches. Many 
of them wore Haiti Ubdrde T- 
shirts. 

But there was a hard edge to 
some of the chanting Many in 
the crowd called for the resig- 
nation of members of the 
interim Government, which 


meeting in Port-an-Prmce, Mr 
Sylrio Claude, president of tire 
small Christian Democratic 
Party of Haiti, read a declara- 
tion saying that the majority of 
the 19 ministers in tire interim 
Government are Duvalierists 
or former Dnvatier Govern- 
ment ministers. He called on 
the ruling council to form, 
within a month, a provisional 
Government containing repre- 
sentatives of opposition par- 
ties. 

Mr Claude, who is a Protes- 
tant minister, was jailed sever-

doubt that bank notes bearing 
Papa Doc's image wfll go. 

Haitians feel that an era of 
humiliation has ended. The 
Dnvaliers made Haiti notori- 
ous. Now people say that they . 
no longer feel ashamed. 1 
• TALLOIRES, Fiance: 
Baby Doc Dnvatier is proving 
a big headache for tire French 
Government by resisting ef- 
forts to get him out of tire 
country and insis ting on per- 
manent refuge in France (Ren- 
ter reports). 

French officials describe Mr 
Dnvatier^ stay as a transit 
stop and rale out granting 
residence to tire ex-Presideut, 
who has been cloistered for the 
past six days in a beavfly- 
gnarded luxury hotel here. 

The French External Rela- 
tions Ministry said that 
France had formally ap- 
proached Liberia about offer- 
ing Mr Dnvatier asylum, but 
was still awaiting a reply.

Dingo case mother at 
the centre of 
Canberra-Darwin row 


OVERSEAS NEWS 


^ Chamberiain's 

latest attempt to prove h«sclf 

innocent of murder is likely to 

provoke an even greater fu- 
rore, if that is possible, than 
extraordinary events 
which have already marked 
the so-called Dingo Baby case.. 

l£$s than a week after being 
set free, Mrs Chamberlain has 
become the foens of a wrangle 
between the Federal Govern- 
ment and the administration 
of the Northern Terroritary. 

Since the announcement of 
a fresh inquiry it has become 
apparent that the Chamber- 
lain case now means more to 
Australia than just the ip g » t 
question of whether the young 
wife of a Seventh Day Advent- 
ist pastor dashed the throat of 
their nine-week old baby and 
then fabricated an .incredible 
account of the child's death 
involving a wild dog. 

It was already well known 
that “Iindy r ’, as she is invari- 
ably referred to, has signifi- 
cant commercial potential, as 
demonstrated by the large, 
sums being offered by the 
proprietors of Australia's vig- 
orous and combative media 
- for the exclusive rights to her 
story. 

_ .What is .tow emerging is 


From Stephen Taylor, Sydney 

that the case also has consider^ \ 
able potential for politicians. ( 


The wrangle started with 
the suggestion by Mr Lionel

conviction.

Mr Bowen told Parliament is quite capable of conducting

The Foreign Office is ago- 
inizing over whether to have 
any contact with a higb-Jevd 
Argentine parfiameatary dele- 
gation due to visit Britain next 
week as guests of the South 
Atlantic Council, set up to 
promote Anglo- Argentine rec- 
onciliation, and the Inter- 
Parframemary Union. 

The group includes two 
senior members of President 
Alfonsms Radical party — 
Senator Adolfo Gass, vice- 
chairman of the Senate oom- 


By Nicholas Ashford, Diplomatic Correspondent 


mi ttee on foreign affairs, and 
Sen or Federico Storani, chair- 
man of the foreign affairs 
committee in the Chamber of 
Deputies. 

The aim of the visit b to 
improve understanding be- 
tween the two Falldands foes 
in the hope that this will 
eventually lead to a re-estab- 
lishment of full diplomatic 
relations. 

It is hoped the four-member 
delegation, whose visit has 
come under fire from nation- 


alist groups in Argentina, will 
be carrying a message from 
President Alfonsin which will 
restate Argentina's claims to 
sovereignty over the Falkland 
•Islands but will also contain 
fresh ideas on how the present 
deadlock can be broken. 

Britain's main reservation 
about talking to the group is 
that Argentina is still techni- 
cally at war with Britain. 

The British are also upset 
that none of the constructive 


gestures which London has 
made since the ending of the 
Falldands war, such as the 
lifting of financial and trade 
restrictions or offering to re- 
establish air services, has pro- 
duced a positive response 
from Buenos Aires. 

There concerns have not 
discouraged a large number of 
prominent British parliamen- 
tarians — many Conservatives 
among than — from wanting . 
to talk to the Argentine dekga- ■ 
tion.

These are hard times for the 
gregarious B ulgarians . Earlier 
this winter. Western pop nm-

article on Wednesday to what 
it styled “our national mobiH-

said that 80 per cent of si

Debtors in 


Freitas woos sceptical south search of 

* A AAmiMATI 


From Richard W{ 
Grandola, Porra 

Almost twelve years after 
Portugal's left-wing revolu- 
tion, Professor Diogo Freitas 
do Amaral, join! candidate of 
the right in Sunday's keenly 
contested presidential elec- 
tion, came to the Aientejo to 
proclaim that he too is “a 
man of April 25. 1974” 

The claim illustrated his 
strenuous effort to amass 
sufficient votes in ihe deci- 
sive second round and so 
become the man to replace 
President Antonio Eanes, the 
former Army officer who 
emerged from the 1974 revo- 
lution but who cannot consti- 
tutionally run for a third 
term. All campaigning ends 
tonighL 

Professor Freitas obtained 
a commanding 46 per cent of 
the vote in the first round on 
January 26 against Dr Mario 
Soares, the Socialist leader 
and former prime minister, 
who got only 25 per cent 
While Professor Freitas 
must essentially hold that 
lead in the north and the 
middle-class vote in Lisbon, 
in the south he has to drive a 
wedge between his rival and 
the rest of the left which 
together in the first round 
obtained more than 53 per 
cent. 

“I am. and will be. a man 
of April 25 and I accept those 
democratic ideals. What I 
cannot accept is the totalitar- 
ian deviation from them 
during 1975 - or that they 
must mean positive hunger 
or salaries months in 
arrears." Professor Freitas 
went on. 

A crowd of about 150 
convinced supporters ap- 
plauded but, at a distance, 
clusters of working class 
people stood around in this 
dusty little agricultural town, 
some 100 miles south of 
Lisbon, looking absolutely 
impassive and very sceptical 


••■t; «« £r-r*:. s -: ;■*: 



Professor Freitas do Amaral acknowledges cheers at Cascais, a resort outside Lisbon. 


as they listened to Professor 
Freitas's declaration. 

During a day's campaign- 
ing through the Aientejo and 
finally onto the Algarve, the 
44-> ear-old Christian Demo- 
crat chose to make his 
declaration here because, as 
he put it Grandola “will 
always be associated with the 
revolution". 

“Grandola". the song 
which described the agricul- 
tural workers' struggles and 
was banned by the authori- 
tarian regime ’ before 1974. 
became the theme song of the 
April Revolution. Its singing 
still evokes emotional memo- 
ries on the Left but its 
author Jose Afonso, a fierce 
critic of Dr Soares in office, 
has these days endorsed his 
candidacy to stop Professor 
Freitas winning 


In Grandola in the first 
round the presidential candi- 
date backed by the Commu- 
nists and supporters of 
outgoing President Eanes ob- 
tained 59 per cent Professor 
Freitas 22 per cent and Dr 
Soares only 12 per cent half 
his national average. These 
figures underline how crucial 
the Communist vote will be. 

On the trail through little 
towns Professor Freitas ham- 
mers how the true ideals of 
April 1974. jobs, social jus- 
tice and prosperity, can best 
be achieved with him in Ihe 
presidency and Senhor 
Anibal Cavaco Silva leading 
a government of the same 
political colour. 

The Prime Minister, a 
right-wring Social Democrat 
joined the candidate cam- 
paigning in ihe Algarve. 


closely linking the future of 
his three-month-old minority 
government with the presi- 
dential outcome. 

"There is no valid reason 
why Portugal should be the 
least developed country of 
Western Europe, we are not 
less intelligent or less hard- 
working." Professor Freitas 
declared. But Portugal must 
have statesmen competent 
enough to lead the country to 
higher living standards 

Sunday's vote, he empha- 
sizes. must above all help to 
create slablity in the 
country's political institu- 
tions. 

Professor Freitas nowhere 
mentions that the Social 
Democrats, now backing 
him. governed in coaltion 
with Dr Soares throughout 
the austerity years. 


Carter finds Central America eager for peace 


From John Carlin 
Mexico City 

Former President Jimmy 
Carter has said here that all 
the options for peace in 
Central America were, not 
being explored, making clear 
that he believed the Reagan 
Administration should make 
greater efforts to promote 
negotiations among the war- 
ring factions in the region. 

Mr Carter, at the end of a 
fact-finding tour of five Latin 


American nations, said at a 
news conference that in El 
Salvador and Nicaragua, 
where he met both presi- 
dents. he had found both 
sides “more eager for peace 
negotiations than is generally 
believed”. 

He would not be drawn on 
wheiher he thought Washing- 
ton was acting as an obstacle 
to peace in the two countries. 
But he did note that further 
US aid to the anti-Sandinista 


Contras, as President Reagan 
is proposing, would make 
peace more difficult. 

Mr Carter also said he had 
found El Salvador's revolu- 
tionary leaders - some of 
whom he met here on 
Wednesday - to be much 
more moderate and reason- 
able than he had been led to 
believe by their enemies. 

Earlier on Wednesday, af- 
ter meeting Mr Carter, lead- 
ers of Ei Salvador's FMLN- 


FDR rebel organization said 
President Duarte had recently 
turned down a proposal for 
reopening peace talks. 

One specific proposal 
which the rebels said Senor 
Duarte had refused to discuss 
was putting an end to 
guerrilla sabotage, which has 
had a crippling effect on the 
Salvadorean economy, in ex- 
change fora halt to bombings 
by the US- supplied Air 
Force. 


a common 
strategy 

From Bailey Morris 
Washington 

Latin American nations 
have arranged an emergency 
meeting later this month to 
develop a common strategy 
towards the regroa's mount- 
ing debts problem, and the 
special difficulties of Mexico, 
which has been hardest hit by 
the collapse of oil prices. 

Foreign ministers of eight 
Latin American com 
after meeting Mr George 
Shultz, the US Secretary of 
State, said yesterday they 
would convene a s pedal 
session of the II -nation 
Cartagena Group in Uruguay 
at an unspecified date later 
(his month. 

Hie group said that falling 
commodity prices and the 
recast drop in oil prices had 
stretched their economies to 
the limit, provoking growing 
political unrest and patting in 
doubt their collective ability 
to repay the region's £360 
billion (£250 billion) debt 
Officials con fi r m ed that the 
meeting had been called at 
the special request of Mexico, 
which reportedly plans to 
propose a programme for 
itself which the others will be 
asked to support. 

SeOor Enrique blesias, 
Uruguay's Foreign Minister, 
acts as secretary of the 
Cartagena Gump, which has 
criticized the industrialized 
nations* global debt strategy 
The group last met in 
December, and demanded at 
least doable tbe $29 billion 
assistance proposed by Mr 
James Baker, the US Trea- 
sury Secretary, in the new 
debt strategy be announced 
four mouths ago. 

At that time, before the 
sharp drop in oil prices, the 
group said that without great- 
er assistance Latin American 
countries would be forced to 
reduce their debt payments 
unilaterally. 

Mexico has already indi- 
cated that it will be unable to 
meet payments this year on 
its $97 billion debt, and 
Venezuela, which owes an 
estimated £35 billion, has 
also been hard hit. 

Officials of tbe main indus- 
trialized countries have been 
resisting proposals, fashioned 
largely by Mexico, for inter- 
est rate concessions which 
they fear could lead to a 
collective request for a mas- 
sive “writedown** of the loans 
to about 77 cents on tbe 
dollar. 


Lange rules out a 
British request 
for warship visit 

From Richard Long, Wellington 


Britain's chief of defence 
staff. Admiral of the Fleet Sir 
John Fieldhousc. who arrives 
in New Zealand today for a 
six-day visit, will not be 
bringing any request for a 
visit by British warships. Mr 
David Lange, the New Zea- 
land Prime Minister, said last 
night. 

Mr Lange agreed that New 
Zealand's ban on visits by 
nucicar-powered or nuclear 
weapons carrying warships 
would probably be a leading 
topic of discussion during the 
admiral's visit, but he said 
Sir John was familiar with 
the policy and would not be 
asking for a visit by a British 
ship. 

“Wc know he won't be. 
because the Prime Minister 
of Great Britain has said that 
no such visit will take place 
under New Zealand's policy, 
and we are not proposing io 
change the policy." Mr Lange 
said. 

Britain adopts the same 
policy as the Ltaited States in 
neither confirming nor deny- 
ing that its warships carry 
nuclear weapons. 

A British task force is 
expected to visit Australia 


later this year, as well as 
taking part in exercises in the 
Pacific, and New Zealand 
anti-nuclear groups have 
claimed that Sir John's visit 
could be connected with a 
request for a naval visit. 

Mr Lange agreed that the 
policy banning nuclear ships 
would be discussed with Sir 
John. “We will talk about it, 
but it won't be a matter of 
exposing him ‘ to a new 
concept or idea. He knows 
very well what the policy is. 
and he has not been unhelp- 
ful with respect to it. He 
hopes that we will have a 
settlement of the differences 
between the United States 
and New Zealand." 

Sir John Fieldhouse. who 
commanded the British task 
force during the Falklands 
war. will have talks in 
Wellington with Mr Lange 
and the chief of the New 
Zealand defence staff, and 
will attend a meeting of the 
New Zealand Defence Coun- 
cil. He leaves for Canberra 
on Wednesday where he will 
attend the Brilanz British- 
Australia-Ncw Zealand de- 
fence conference. 


Pirates 
rip open 
freighter’s 
cargo 

Bangkok (Reuter) - Heavi- 
ly-armed raiders boarded a 
Japanese container ship at 
sea and robbed it of thou- 
sands of dollars* worth of 
cargo in what shipping agents 
said was the third pirate 
attack this month in Thai 
coastal waters. 

Mr Mana Pbatharatham, 
general manager of Mitsui 
OSK Line (Thailand), which 
operates the 8. i SO- ton Pana- 
manian-registered Monte 
Ruby, said that an unknown 
number of armed pirates 
approached in a speedboat 
and boarded tbe ship about 
12 miles off Patiaya. The 
Bangkok-bound ship had left 
the Japanese port of Kobe on 
February 3. 

Captain Odolo Canonigo 
radioed for help, but the Thai 
authorities did not respond, 
according to the OSK official 
Mr Mana said the pirates 
broke the seals on 18 
containers and stole some of 
the Monte Ruby's cargo, 
mainly electrical goods and 
china ware. The IS unarmed 
crew were powerless to slop 
them. 

He said the pirate's boat 
was a speedboat of the type 
used by smugglers. 


US airline 
staff ‘in 
drug ring’ 

Washington (Reuter) -- Up 
to 50 employees of a leading 
US airline are expected to be 
charged with involvement in 
smuggling cocaine worth mil- 
lions of dollars from Colom- 
bia. A Justice Department 
source, announcing that an 
airline ring was about to be 
smashed, declined to name 
the carrier. 

But the chairman of East- 
ern Airlines, Mr Frank 
Borman, said later: “We do 
and will co-operate in every 
way with the authorities to 
make certain that none of our 
airplanes or our employees 
are involved in that trade.” 


Tbe Justice Department 
source said the Drug Enforce- 
ment Administration, a divi- 
sion of the department, had 
been investigating a leading 
US air carrier. 

Evidence of the cocaine 
smuggling is being presented 
to a federal grand jury in 
Miami 



In conflict: Mr Donald Hodel (left) and the adviser he 
sacked, Mr Lee Iacocca, chairman of Chrysler. 

Statue chief removed 


Washington (Beater) - 
The head of the Statue of 
Lrberty-Ellis Island Centen- 
nial Commission was yester- 
day dismissed becanse of a 
potential conflict of interest. 

Mr Donald Hodel, the 
Interim’ Secretary, said he 
d ismi ssed Mr Lee Iacocca, 
chairman of the Chrysler 
Corporation, because be also 
headed the Statue of iiberty- 
Ellis .Island Foundation, a 
private group 


Mr lacocca's private foun- 
dation advises the department 
on the award of construction 
contracts for restoration 
work. 

Mr Iacocca , credited with 
resurrecting Chrysler from 
the brink of bankruptcy a few 
years age, responded angrily 
to his sacking. Mr Hodel's 
statement “was off the wall 
and in dear contradiction of 
the facts."

They say life begins at forty 
Not so long ago, thats about when it ended 


Today, when someone dies in their forties, 

we all say how tragic it is that they should die 
so young 

And yet back in the last centuiy it was 
common-place to be attending a funeral of a 
person in their forties. 

The average life expectancy was, after all, 
just forty-two. 

Of course, apart from 
poor hygiene and sanitation, . 
there was no immunisation 
against polio, diphtheria 
tetanus, mumps, measles, 
whooping cough or 
German measles. 

No real treat- 
ment for tuberculosis* 
diabetes, kidney failure 
high blood pressure, heart 
disease, iijcers, skin disease 
or asthma. ; 

No antibiotics such as 
penicillin to fight infectious 
diseases. , 

And serious smallpo 
epidemics were frequent 

Nowadays we take it for 
granted that all these con 
ditions can be treated. 

Why animals are vital 
to research. 

It is thanks largely 
to the breakthroughs that 
have been made through 
research which requires 
animals, that most of us are 
able to live into our seventies 

Over the past fifty years, 
the medicines and vaccines jHnti 
that have been developed 
from such research, have 
saved the lives of over half 
a million infants arid child 
ren in Britain alone. 

Smallpox has been 
eradicated worldwide. And 
trials of malaria vaccine may 
also soon lead to the control 
of this lethal fever. 

Although we can now treat many cancers, 
heart disease, rheumatism, arthritis, diabetes 
and asthma there is still a need for safer and 
belter medicines. 

And of course, diseases such as multiple 
sclerosis, cystic fibrosis, musculai dystrophy. 



1 



senile dementia and AIDS desperately need 
more research. 

Its not just people who benefit. 

Yet people areri t the only ones who benefit 
from medical science. Research on animals has 
led to many advances in veterinary practice. 

Dogs can be protected against distemper, 
parvo virus, hepatitis and 
' kidney disease. 

Cals are immunised 
against enteritis and cat flu. 

And more research is 
needed to solve numerous 
diseases which afflict 
farm animals.

Among those who 
supervise research on - 
animals are qualified 
veterinary suigeons; they 
along with their colleagues 
care about the welfare of . 
animals. 

Though they care for ani- 
mals, naturally they also care ~ 
for people. That is why they 
use animals in research.

Animal rights or human jJJ 

ills? 


. HIJ 

Although millions, of : 
pounds are being spent to 
discover alternatives to S 

using animals, few of the ** 

techniques developed — 

can replace animals com- 
pletely in the discovery 
and safety testing of 

. »up 

new medicines. 

an 

Until we find an equally 
valid way of testing medicines 
for safety and efficiency, ani- 
mals have to be used. 

The ABPI believes that 
we do not have to choose 
between animal rights or 
human ills. With the right 
kind of approach, both can 
benefit. 

The new legislation can 
improve the care and welfare — 
of research animals, without hindering the — 
advance of medicine. 

Perhaps by the end of the century, with the 
help ofmedical research, people will then/v 
be saying something a little different, fall ml 

That life begins at sixty?

THE TIMES FRIDAY FEBRUARY 14 1986 


SPECTRUM 


Where small is dandy 


The Elephant’s Typewriter 
goes under the hammer 


The imaginary folk of 
Lake Wobegon are 
familiar as apple pie to the 
American radio audience 
of Garrison Keillor. Now 
they're available in book 
form in Britain -but will 
we appreciate them? 

Penny Symon finds out 


A tall, singular man stands in 
front of the microphone in 
a darkened theatre. In a 
slow, deep voice he begins: 
“Well, it’s been a quiet 
week in Lake Wobegon, my home 
town." And, for the next 25 minutes, 
speaking without a script to a rapt 
audience, he spins an evocative yarn 
about life in the small town “that 
time forgot and the decades cannot 
improve/' where one could stand in 
the middle of Main Street and not be 
in anyone's way. 

Garrison Keillor’s monologues, 
mixing homespun humour with 
wistful and nostalgic memories of 
times past, tap a rich vein of 
yearning, among even the most 
hardened city dwellers, for the simple 
life and the pleasures of the familiar. 

As his soothing voice rambles on 
about Ralph’s pretty good grocery * 
“remember, if you can't find it at 
Ralph’s, you can probably get along 
without it” the Chatterbox cafe, 
serving Lake Wobegon's basic dish of 
mushroom soup and tuna casserole, 
and Bob's Bank — “The friendly 
bank in the green mobile home right 
on Main Street where your money is 
safe and the door is always open" — 
his listeners nod with approval and 
say, “Tup, that’s how it was." 

Since arriving in the New World. 
Mr Keillor tens his audience, the 
people of Lake Wobegon have been 
sceptical of progress. Smart doesn’t 
count for much there. 

. “When the first automobile 
chugged into town, the crowd's, 
interest was muted, less wholehearted 
than if there had been a good fire." 
Left to their own devices,“we 
Wobegonians go straight for small 



Lot 297 -is an Elephant's 
Typewriter. It looks rather 
like an aluminium chip-fryer 
(and indeed a plaque on the 
side says RESTAURANT 
EQUIPMENT (Halifax) 
LTD); but it has keys, nine 
of them, and it prints out 
GIGI .(the owner’s name) 
and IDIOT (a little joke for 
when the framer asks Gigi, 
“What’s my name. then?”). 
Years’ worth of ancient ink 
spells out the two words on 
the platen in thick black 
capitals. 

The typewriter is being 
sold at auction, not because 
Gigi has got into new 
technology and ordered an 
elephant’s YDU-and*key- 
board, but because all the 
remaining vehicles, cos- 
tumes, props, harness and 
other artefacts belonging to 
Billy Smalt’s Circus are 
going under the hammer 
next week. On Friday the 
interested buyers will be 
admitted to the windswept 
site of the old winter 
quarters near Windsor and, 
on Saturday, down will go 
the hammer on 1,700 lots. 


A gre at showmaiTs 
legend comes to aa_ 

end with the sad sale 
of Billy Smart’s 
circus props 


Down in bis faded office, 
overshadowed by a statue of 
Ins vast father, Billy Smart 
Junior feels the sadness too. 
“We have no choice: The 
circus came off the road in 
1971; fuel costs were malting 
it too expensive. We carried 
on doing the television 
Christmas circuses, and run- 
ning the zoo here, till a 
couple of years ago. Me and 
my bro ther are going abroad, 
anyway, now." where? *Tve 
got a villa in Spain." 

It seems a limp sort of 
way for the Billy Smart 
legend to end. Father Billy 
started in fun-fairs ana 
branched out into circuses is 


dered around it in the 
cheerful company of Ian 
McLean who has been engi- 
neer to the circus, on the 
road and off for 35 years, 
“All this lot, harness, every- 
thing, used to be on show to 
the public in the winter, 
together with the animals in 
the zoo", he observed “Aye, 
everything was spotless in 
those days." 


Beneath a sinister bundle 
of -string chain-mail, abrge 
dusty object proved to be an 
Elephant's Bowler Hat (Lot 
749), accompanied by a pair 
of vast headphones in the 
BBC style of the 1950s. 

It’s a ago of the times, 
really; elephants these days 
are serious creatures, giving 
interviews in the wild to 
David Attenborough, fight- 
ing to survive. They have no 
time for frivolities like 
dressing up m policemen’s 
helmets or dancing about in 
enonnons lame skirts (Lot 
878, in case you have a large 


1946; within two decades he , friend with a taste for seedy 
ran a -20-elephant spectacu- disco costumes). 


Leotards and 
llamas 9 collars 


The new Mark Twain? Garrison Keillor; “my storytelling is nowhere near as good as people do themselves 


of the town from its founding by _ the grand ole opry, the home of can’t be anything else", he said. “The 


potatoes. Majestic doesn't appeal to 
us. we like the Grand Canyon better 
with Clarence and Arlene parked in 
front of it, smiling. We fad uneasy at 
momentous events." 

The Lake Wobegon monologues 
are the centrepiece of a unique two- 
hour radio mow called A Prairie 
Home Companion, which is pro- 
duced by Minnesota Public Radio 
and is broadcast live from the World 
Theatre in St Paul by 263 public 
radio stations across the United 
■States. More than two million 
devoted fans tune in on Saturday 
evenings to the mixture of country 


Unitarian Missionaries and tire 
arrival of the first Norwegian 
Lutherans and German Catholics, to 
life in Lake Wobegon today, where a 
thunderstorm is a major event 

Lake Wobegon does not exist, but 
Mr Keillor’s mythical town -“omitted 
from the map owing to the 
incompetence of surveyors" - is very 
much a product of his own small 
town. Midwestern upbringing in 
Anoka, Minnesota. 

The book wifi be published in 
Britain - indeed. Mr Keillor arrived 
yesterday to promote it. But he was 


country music, in Nashville. 

“I used to hear their show on the 
radio when I was a kid, and I loved 
the fact that it was live, it charged it 


with excitement. I thought, as I was 
doing the artide, that I could do a 
live radio show like that, and 
Minnesota public radio, for whom 1 
was doing an early morning chat and 
record show, agreed. We began later 
that year.” 

In the early days, the St Paul 
audience numbered between 20 and 
50 in a hall that could seat 400. But a 
prairie home companion soon at- 
tracted a growing number of follow- 
ers, and in May 1980 regular national 
radio broadcasts began. By the end of 
that year, 193 stations were carrying 
the programme. And it has been 
growing ever since. It is sold out 
weeks ahead, and every Saturday 
evening about 1,000 people pack the 
world theatre. 

Now some Minnesotans feel that 
something they cherished as particu- 
larly their own. which understood 
their humour and their Scandinavian 
and German ancestry, has grown 
away from then. They are sad that 
their secret pleasure has become 
public knowledge. 

But Mr Keillor said that he does 
not feel that the show has lost its 
roots.

I wrote the book for an American

and wonder if they are going to

together by Mr Keillor. 


together by Mr Keillor. 

He is being talked about as the new 
Mark Twain, but self-effacingly 
prefers to describe himself - at 6 feet 4 
inches, as "America’s tallest radio 
humorist", although he often wears a 
Twamish white suit on stage. Now 
Mr Keillor, who is 43, has put his 
wry m usings into a best seller. Lake 
Wobegon Days, which tells the story 


*Tm looking forward to London. I’ve 
only been there once before and then 
only for 24 hours. 

“I think HI create a character from 
Lake Wobegon who is visiting 
London, perhaps on a business trip. 
He writes a letter home about the 
place, and this will be a big event in 
Lake Wobegon." 

The radio showhad bumble begin- 
nings. In 1974 Mr Keillor, who had 
always wanted to be a writer since his 
days at the University of Minnesota, 
was assigned by the New Yorker 
magazine to write an article about 


show is. about Lake Wobegon, but 1 
feel that its roots are realty in live ra- 
dio. and in the fact that people enjoy 
listening to stories." 

Storytelling, be said, is a true folk 
art. aid more engrained in people 
than singing and dance is the love of 
language and talk. 

“Nowhere does talk reach such an 
intense level as in storytelling. I 
enjoy it and 1 think the audience 
does too, and yet my storytelling is 
nowhere as good as people do 
themselves, telling stories to family 
and friends. The best stories are the 
ones that are known. People want to : 
bear them ag ain and again." ! 


. It will knock down leo- 
tards and llamas ’ head- 
coflars, mirrors and bells, 
the dry-ice machine and the 
clowns* ladder, and a set of 
peculiar hangings used to 
transform elephants into 
reindeer for a winter sleigh- 
ing tableau 

Builders and scrap-mer- 
chants, eager for wood and - 
wire and scaffolding-poles, 
will bid alongside struggling 
variety artistes m search of 
chicken costumes, and what- 
ever the dubious dass of 
person who turns up to bid 
for Lots 966-971 (Fibreglass 
Glamour Girls, six lots), or 
indeed Lot 956 (Large Nov- 
elty Syringe). There is some- 
thing ineffably sad about the 
whole business. 


far. The Smart brothers are 
keeping the name and “only 
selling the equipment" tut 
study, when a circus parts 
not only with its tents but its 
very dung-shovel and the 
sea-lion’s klaxon, there is 
not modi likelihood of any 
phoenix revival? 


Young Billy is not maud- 
lin about the old days 
(“How would yon Eke to 
feed 20 elephants a day?”) 
but his sad showman’s face 
with its shock of wiry hair 
betrays a certain unease; 
depression perhaps, or may- 
be just a longing for the 
carefree sunny skies of 
Spain. There, at least, no 
dusty racks of pink Cossack 
hats can proclaim their 
sDent reproaches and no life- 
sized model alligators will 
loom out of cobwebbed 
comers at dusk. 

For it is a haunted place, 
this old assembly of hangars 
and frozen sheds. I wan- 


lan remains buoyant, even 
though every dusty neglected 
lot contains the memory of 
an act, tar an animal, or a 
wave of children’s cheers. 
His career has not been 
unfulfiUing. “As the engineer . 
on the rood, you’ve a . heck 
of a responsibility; people 
who don’t see an act tonight 
won’t ever see ft. Things 
must be fixed.” 

Stepping back to avoid a 
dismantled sousaphone. I 
stumbled on what looked 
like a large scaffolding-pole 
with some odd attachments. 
“Ah, look ax that" he said 
tenderly. “Twenty years ago 
1 n jade that new trapeze bar 
for the girls and instead of 
the ordinary old shackles, 
which always gave a jerk at 
the end of the swing, 1 used 
ballbearings." 


IBs next job is 
with a funfair 


M r Keillor's family, de- 
scended from Scots, 
were Plymouth Brethren 
and, while not as strict 
as some — he was 
allowed to play with children outside 
the faith — they were still withdrawn. 
Television was not allowed, and 
dancing was disapproved ct He did 
not go to the cinema until he was 18. 

But there was a lot of storytelling, 
especially by his great-uncle Lew. 
“He had been a salesman, and he 
liked to drive around and drop in on 
people, ask them how they were 
doing. I looked to those stories of his, 
and to the history of the family, as 
giving a person some sense of place, 
that we were not just chips floating 
on the waves, that in some way we 
. were meant to be here. Thai we had j 
standing." 


“Everything I realty know - about 
Minnesota, about childhood, small 
towns, winter, being a Protestant - 
comes from my life, but the shapes 
ha ve been changed. I was boro in 
Minnesota and I have lived here all 
my life. I am a MW-Westeroer, I

CONCISE CROSSWORD (No 875) 



John Wisden, a Brighton 
man, stood 5ft 4%ins and as a

Victorian journalists “The

formidable player rather thaa 
a man of tetters, Wisden 
Cricketers’ Almanack fa the 
chief reason John Wisden ’s 
name fa known today. It 
ootlasted its early contempo- 
raries and the editor's anneal 
notes have been the most 
influential voice on cricket 
issues worldwide since the 
early 1890s. 

This coincided with die 
editorship of Syndey Pardon, 
whose period in office np to 
1925 has always been regard- 
ed as the most significant in 
the almanack’s history. He 
wss a partner n the Cricket 
Reporting Agency, which 
even after its 1965 merger 
with the Press Association 
remained responsible for the 
editorial content as it bad 
since 1880. 

There has always been less 
mystique attached to the 
appointment of Wisden edi- 
tors, with no qnestion of 
papal white smoke emerging 
from a chimney at Lord’s, 
than generally imagined. A 
partner in the agency asnafly 
filled the post. By the time 
John Woodcock took office, 
though, Wisden's ownership 
was jointly held by Qeeen 
Anne Press and the equip- 
ment firm Grays of Cam- 
; _ bridge (International) 
Limited. Last year 


McCorquodales, the special- 
ist printing group, become the 
owners, though Grays recent- 
ly took op the option they 
held to retain 50 per cent 
control; and it is these 
companies who have now 
appointed Graeme Wright as 
e ditor. 

A 42-year-old New Zea- 
lander with a wide experience 
of editing and producing 
sports anneals and other 
books, be sscceeds John 
Woodcock, who last month 
retinqazsbed bis six-year edi- 
torship because of the grow- 
ing pressure from c ombinin g 
the role with that of cricket 
correspondent to The Times. 

Mr Wright became assis- 
tant editor of Wisden in 1978 
dming the editorship of 
Norman Preston, who died in 
1980. He fa the 12th editor 
since the almanack, popularly 
known as the “Cricketers’ 
Bible", first appeared.

Baldness: here today and 
hair tomorrow? 




Memories are made f this. . . Malcolm Muggeridge with his wife Kitty, and Leslie and Diana Thomas 





W&T: 





turn 


Just over ten 
years ago. 
members of the 
House of Com- 
mons were able 
to compare two 
types of hair 
trans p lant; almost at the 
same time one member had 
bad a thin flap transposed to 
the float of his scalp, the 
other had multiple trans- 
plants, Both aid well but in 
neither case does the result 
look entirely natural 
The members are not 
alone m their anxiety to 
fight baldness. Recent claims 
that a variety of creams may 
achieve results as good as 
surgery have excited consid- 
erable interest. Two prepara- 
tions are available over the 
counter, but as yet no 
controlled clinical trials have 
been published in the medi- 
calioumals. 

The third preparation. 
Regains, manufactured by 
Upjohn, has just completed 
clinical trials in the States. 
Trials have started in this 
country and the manufactur- 
ers say the results are as 
encouraging as they have 
been in the US. Upjohn 
hopes the product will be 
marketed within a year or 
so.

Necrologists

last month when they took

the former champion boxer 
David Pearce's brain scans.

I remember it well... 


For her Caxton Hall wed- 
ding, Diana Thomas wore a 
striking aubergine-coloured 
three-quarter length velvet 
cossack-style suit edged with 
black fur, and blade suede 
lace-up boots. Her husband, 
author Leslie Thomas, re- 
members it well “D iana had 
on some sort of floral thing", 
he recalls of that unfoigetta- 
ble day — November 11 
1973. Diana has equally fond . 
memories of a November 4 
wedding. 

Like the famous song from 
Gigi in which Hermione 
G ingold and Maurice Cheva- 
lier share conflicting reminis- 
cences of that never-to-be- 
foigotten evening-' m their 
romantic past, even' the most 
magic of memories fade with 
the years. One man's

As St Valentine brings back memories of first loves and

the mists of time than we realize. Some well known 
names reveal their magic moments to Sally Brompton

As semi-honeymoons go, it 
was a particularly good one. 
Their hotel, according to 
Carl, was “shabby romantic".

Certainly, our memories 
are reassuringly selective 
when it comes to those things

mists of time. But bow on 
earth can we overlook a 
single detail of that romantic 
meeting ingrained forever 
upon our hearts and minds? 
Easily, it would seem. 



restaurant". A bit confusing 
that must have been, since 
Jean consistently met up with 
them at “somebody's flat 
they had borrowed" 

■ For her first ever trip to 
Paris, Jean packed a couple 
of “long worsted skirts" — 
Carl , win never forget her in 
the violet suede. She was also 
lent some dothes by her 
actress friend, Jenny Logan, 
particularly impressing Cad 
with what he describes as the 
“enormous number of eve-, 
ning dresses — all sorts of 
silver things with no bade". 

The only hem Jean re- 
members borrowing . was 
Jenny’s best long grey coat

Money was afa» a problem 
when Malcolm and Kitty 
Muggeridge wed in 1927. A 
schoolmaster in Bi rmingham 
at the time, Malcolm was 
unable to afford a reception 
following the register office

Everyone knows 
first impressions 
can be misleading 


When conductor/composer 
Carl Davis and actress Jean 
Bobt spent a pre-marriage 
semi-honeymoon weekend in 
Paris they both knew h was 
something they would never 
forget. Breakfasts were a high 
point of the trip. Jean recalls 
sitting at the pavement cafe 
opposite their hotel for fresh 
coffee and croissants each 
morning. Carl meanwhile, 
was back in the hotel room 
tucking into the delicacies 
that he well remembers Jean 
popping out daily to buy at 


must have gone the way of 
her Laura Ashley Victorian 
nightdress of which Carl has 
no recollection whatsoever. 

Anyway, everyone knows 
that first impressions can be 
misleading. Travel writer Eric 
Newby met his Yugoslavian- 
Italian wife, Wanda, when be 
was hiding in a hay loft after 
escaping from a prisoner-of- 
war camp in Italy in 1943. 
She first met him in the 
middle of a field. Her hair 
^icoording to him, was long — 
although “not very long", 
according to her. She brought 
him her father's grey tweed 
jacket and trousers as a 
disguise. He osed the “striped 
trousers and mechanic’s

mM'hflmr'* Even their first date is a 


dinner together later. So he 
says. Kitty's version of the 
post-wedding festivities is 
slightly different. “My father 
tome us to hutch at a local 
hotel", she recounts. She 
even remembers being driven 
there by Malcolms best 
friend. Dr Alec Vidkr, in his 
Trajan car. 

“Alec didn't even come to 
the wedding", snorts Mal- 
colm. “Being a priest he 
didn't approve of us getting 
married in a register office.” 

Years later, he and Kitty 
made amends for the civil 
ceremony with a service of 
thanksgiving presided over 
by Alec Vidler. How many 
years later? “Twenty-five", 


have belonged to Diana since 
she was wandering througL 
the lanes looking at antiques 
at the time. 

Their independence was in 1 
evidence even on their wed- 
ding night when the woman 
who owned the restaurant 
opposite their house in Rich- 
mond, Surrey, invited them 
over for a fine meal to 
celebrate. Well, she invited 
D iana at any rate. Leslie has 
clear memories of her bring- 
ing over a cake — “or was it 
some tort of dish?" — which 
he presumably ate in solitary 
splendour while his bride 
dined in style over the road. 

Some lime after we talked, 
Leslie Thomas remembered 
something else about his 
wedding. “It can’t have been 
1973", be telephoned to say. 
“It must have been 1970 — 
after all, our sot’s 14." 

Or could it be their 
daughter. . ? 


Regaine is a topical prepa- 
ration made from minoxidil 
used to treat persistent or 
severe high blood pressure. 
It was noticed that it caused 
hirsutism in some patients, 
but was not always selective 
as to where the hair grew. 

Taken orally, minoxidil 
also has other side effects, 
but if it is made into a 
cream or lotion side effects 
have, so for as the American 
trials have shown, been 
entirely absent and the hair 
has only grown where the 
lotion teas been applied. 

One third of the patients 
grew an acceptable head of 
hair, one third had fuzzy 
baby hair and one third had 
no response at alL Derma- 
tologists are able to give a 
reasonably accurate opinion 
as to which bald men are 
likely to benefit, but until 
the product has been ap- 
proved the makers are not 
making any statements. 

Christopher Reeve, the 
j actor, has found a private 
source of the cream. Upjohn 
has mixed feelings about 
this; they are delighted that 
his hair has grown so well 
but are strongly opposed to 
individual experimentation; 
their own formula will only 
be obtainable on prescrip- 
tion. 


Although some doctors 
thought his early scans 
showed signs of chronic 
brain damage, the majority 
only became alarmed when a 
later scan showed an area of 
translucency about a 
centimetre in diameter which 
had not been noted previous- 
ly. Areas of translucency are 
usually associated with a 
flank haemorrhage, and even

current abdo minal pain, and 
as doctors are frequently 
unable to think of any more 
likely diagnosis they find it 
tempting to agree. 

Professor Harold Ellis has 
written in the British Medi- 
cal Journal on adhesions; .He 
estimates that one in -20 
people in England have had 
their abdominal cavities 
opened by a surgeon and. in 
bis experience 90 per cent of 
these patients, or two mil- 
lion people, later develop 
adhesions. . 

Although adhesions occa- . 
rionafly give rise to acute 
abdominal obstruction ljiey 
do not cause the vague 
symptoms of abdominal dis- 
comfort for which they are 
blamed. 

Professor Ellis says thai 
adhesions never grumble

•or they cause the acute 
symptoms which demine

Dr Thomas

The minority contended 
that as he was symptom-free 
and there was no evidence 
that the change in the scan 
was due to boxing It was 
unfair to baa him. David 
Pearce's appeal against the 
ban was withdrawn. 


It is hoped that by using 
routine scanning doctors will 
be able to detect changes in 
the brain before lasting 
damage is dime; once dam- 
age is established it tends to 
be progressive, leading even- 
tually to the degenerative 
changes associated with the 
punch drank syndrome. 

Although David Pearce's 
doctors were acting with 
scientific detachment, in oth- 
er cases involving different 
specialities medical opinion 
has sometimes been biased 
by sympathy for a man 
whose livelihood was at 
stake. The Boxing Board of 
Control quotes cases where 
boxers with retinal 
haemorrhages have been giv- 
en medical certificates of 
fitness. To improve the 
standing of the sport stricter 
recommendations, which will 
include clauses on brain 
scans, are expected to be 
approved by the Board In the 
near future.

Unlikely as it sounds. Jeremy 
Thorpe is in Uganda selling 
prefabricated huts to the villag- 
ers. many of whom have been 
left homeless by one reign of 
terror after another. Trading 
under the name Jeremy Thorpe 
Associates, he is operating from 
the Speke Hotel in Kampala - 

looking, according to my source, 
thin and drawn. It is generally 
agreed on the diplomatic circuit 
that the venture will not be a 
resounding success, since Ugan- 
dans. with” grass and reeds readily 
available, can run up a house for 
next to nothing. Yesterday 
Thorpe spoke to ms source about 
the country's new president, the 
puritanical “no drink-no

like the arrival of Oliver 
Cromwell.” Perhaps: Thorpe's 
arrival, unfortunately, does not 
look like that of Geotge Wimpey. 


On the wing 


Many people know that Labour 
MP Tam Dalyell is an old 
Etonian with an historic, privi- 
leged background, but few can be 
aware that his labyrinthine castle 
in Scotland is so vast that Eric 
HeiTer and his wife once got lost 
there. The HefTers had been 
asked to babysit for Dalyell's 
daughter, but they forgot to ask 
where the baby was and it took 
them an hour to find her. 


level after a remorseless rise from 
just over 1.500 in 1979. 

Transplant surgeons are sound- 
ing increasingly desperate. Yet 
the DHSS seems bereft of ideas 
that could significantly increase 
the number of organs available. 

On the brighter side, better and 
safer treatments to counter rejec- 
tion have increased the range of 
patients who can be freed bom 
the demanding regime of 2 
dialysis machine and given a 
good chance of independent life. 

The increase in the dialysis 
programme, and the growing 
' awareness of patients on long- 
term dialysis that transplantation 
is now safer and more successful 
has increased the demand for 
transplants. Patients in their 
fifties, sixties and seventies and 
those with diabetes, who would 
once have been left quietly to die. 
are all now candidates for a 
transplant. The number of donor 
organs does not keep pace with 
rising demand, however. At least 
800 people die each year for 
lack of treatment. 

Last year's fall in the number 
of transplants followed a record 
rise of 25 per cent in 1984. That 
was partly the result of a renewed 
donor card campaign by the 
DHSS but. more importantly, 
because of Ben Hardwick, the 
two-year-old boy whose case was 
taken up by BBC Television’s 
Thai's Life and who then 
received a liver transplant at 
Addenbrooke's Hospital amid 
unprecedented media coverage.

people “Are you an organ 
donor?”, would ensure that all 
patients and relatives would be 
asked the crucial question- as a 
matter of routine. .. 

Initially that would be 
controversial. But everyone is 
already asked their religion and 
next of kin so that contact can be 
made, if necessary, with relatives 
and a priest With the informa- 
tion on the hospital record, 
doctors would not need to 
approach relatives when the 
answer was “no" and would find 
it easier to do so when the 
answer was “yes". 

Also in the short term, a 
publicity and education cam- 
paign aimed at doctors and 
nurses is needed. Transplant 
surgeons have already put such a 
proposal, expected to cost several 
hundred thousand pounds over 
three years, to ministers. There 
has been no decision yet on 
whether to fund it. 

In the long term the answer 
may well lie with the next census 
in 1991. Asking everyone 
whether they are prepared to 
have their organs used would add 
little to the cost of the overall

Down the pit? 

Students at Manchester Poly-

£10.00*3 over an act of solidarity 
with militant Merseyside miners. 
Their union loaned the money to 
NUM strikers at the Bold colliery 
in St Helens at Christmas 1984 to 
relieve hardship, with a promise 
of repayment. Students union

he has failed to contact anyone at

central registry; or to look at 
other ideas. The government 
seems to have few of them. 

Donor cards dearly have their 
uses, but they' seem to have done 
all possible to make more organs 
available. Since they were first 
introduced in 1972. 50 million 
cards have been printed and 
distributed — one each for almost 
every man. woman and child 

Yet surveys consistently show 
that only one person in five has a 
card, and even fewer actually 
cany them. Transplant surgeons 
say they rarely if ever see one. 
The suspicion is that only about 
about 5 per cent have a card with 
them when suffering the type of 
fatal brain injury which makes 
them potential donors. 


once people have made the 
decision, the record would be 
permanent. Having it available to 
consult would make it easier for 
doctors in approaching relatives 
to ask for organs. 

But the DHSS thinks such a 
register would be too expensive; 
its estimated costs are £5.7 mil- 
lion to establish and £1.5 million 
a year to run. Ministers are 
looking at the possibility of using 
existing databases, perhaps ask- 
ing credit card holders if they 
would be willing to register as 
potential donors. These ideas do 
not seem very far advanced. 

An opting-out scheme, which 
would allow surgeons to take 
organs unless the patient had 
previously registered an 
objection, is the favoured solu- 
tion of pressure groups such as 
the British Kidney Patients 
Association. Ministers are fright- 
ened of the political implications 
of legislating on these lines and 
many surgeons fear that removal 
of organs from someone whose 
relatives later objected could

the cards makes little difference. 
Between 1983 and 1985. the 
DHSS spent more than £T mil- 
lion on the card campaign. Yet 


The evidence, in any case, is 
that opting-out schemes do not 
significantly increase the supply 
of kidneys. France has an opting- 


out scheme but still cannot meet 
requirements. 

Here is the crux. There is now 
overwhelming evidence that the 
shortage of kidneys is not due to 
reluctance to donate — Gallup 
finds only 20 per cent positively 
against - but to the reluctance of 
doctors and nurses not involved 
in transplants to ask. 

Gordon Williams, the trans- 
plant specialist at Hammersmith 
Hospital in west London, says:” 
Too often, when we ask doctors 
if they will refer possible donors 
they say they never get anybody 
suitable. We know damn well 
that they do.” 

So what should ministers do? 
Their ideas at present are either 
conventional or bizarre. Some 
building societies and banks have 
been persuaded to lake donor 
cards. The CBI and companies 
will help promote them to their 
workforce. Soap operas. The 
Archers and East Enders among 
them, are being asked to write 
transplantation incidents into 
their scripts. 

But Car more aggressive ap- 
proaches are needed. In the short 
term ministers should promote 
the cards where they will have 
most effect, for example on 
petrol station forecourts where 
people who may become poten- 
tial donors in car crashes can put 
them in their wallets and purses. 
The idea of using databases 
should be vigorously pursued. 
And a simple change to foe - 
hospital admission form, asking 


tial issues involved. In these 
circumstances, a bit of over- 
simplification is the only way to 
keep a faint grip on reality. 

Pursuing this line of fooutfoi. I 
have spent some time asking a 
variety of industrialists and 
bankers the naive layman's 
question: What criteria would 
you apply in the British national 
interest in deciding whether a 
particular firm in this country 
should belong to foreigners? The

was "yes”, transplant teams of the answers surprised me. 


would be alerted and relatives 
approached in the knowledge that 
the potential donor's own wishes 
were being carried out. 

Parents would give consent for 
their children, as happens now, 
and doctors would have to be 
aware of the time from the last 
census so that children who had 
reached the age of majority, and 
might think differently from their 
parents, could be dealt with via 
the hospital admission form. 

A form would have to be 
available for those who change 
their minds. This could be issued 
with tax returns, social security 
forms or any of the other 
paperwork generated by White- 
hall. 

Such a system need not cost a 
great deal of money. Even if it 
ran into millions, it would still be 
minuscule compared with the 
cost of the transplant programme 
overall. And the number of lives 
it would save would make every 
penny spent worthwhile. 

Donor cards will not signifi- 
cantly increase the number of 
organs available for transplant. 
Twenty-five years after Britain's 
first transplant operation, a bold 
and imaginative programme is 
called for. Neither the patients in 
the transplant queue nor the clear 


The immediate reply, of 
course, is: “Provided you are 
talking about new foreign invest- 
ment, involving new plant and 
offering fresh jobs where none 
existed before, there shouldn't be 
much objection from anyone — 
except possibly indigenous com- 
petitors and they ought to be 
made to lump it,” Nobody, after 
all. supposes that it was a bad 
thing for Britain that Feud set up 
a UK subsidiary and started 
making cars here in the 1930s. 

The second answer (assuming 
that a take-over is involved) is 
that the decision depends on the 
size and nature of the business. 
Unless, as may be true in the 
case of Westland, some military 
or strategic consideration is 
involved, small or medium-sized

Belfast 

Something resembling a school- 
boy smirk crosses James Moly- 
neaux’s face every time be 
reminds his Official Unionist 
supporters of Mrs Thatcher’s 
troubles — Westland, growing 
personal criticism and declining 
popular support. 

To the Unionist rank and file 
the message is that this general 
unpopularity has coincided with 
foe odium she has attracted in 
Northern Ireland since signing 
foe Hillsborough agreement with 
Dublin. If this is so, it is argued, 
she may soon be seeking support 
wherever she can find it, and. on 
Hillsborough, at least, might well 
be for turning. 

It is a seductive argument, but 
deludes few with experience 
outside foe narrow confines of 
Northern Ireland. They recognize 
foal Unionists have few friends 
at Westminster and even fewer 
among foe general public, and are 
convinced that Britain has little 
desire to maintain foe Union. 
Indeed, many fear that Northern 
Ireland may provide Mrs That- 
cher with just foe issue to reverse 
her declining fortunes, by rallying 
the public to her side with a 
robust defence of the agreement. 

But as Molyneaux and Ian 
Paisley. leader of the Democratic 
Unionists, prepare for another 
meeting with the Prime Minister 
at the end of this month to. 
demand that the agreement be 
scrapped, the Unionists are 
starting to think seriously about 
their future. If nothing else foe 
agreement has forced debate 
within their ranks about their 
relationship with London and the 
Irish Republic. 

By-election votes had not even 
been casi when John Taylor, 
official Unionist MP for Strang- 
ford. outlined his idea. He has 
since been followed by two other 
ambitious and younger poli- 
ticians — Harold McCusker. 
deputy leader of foe Official 
Unionists, and Peter Robinson, 
heir apparent to Paisley. 

While all three insist the 
agreement must be scrapped 
before they talk about the future, 
their ideas implicitly recognize its 
diagnosis of the problem and its 
remedy. They are apparently 
signalling that if there must be 
links wifo foe Irish Republic, as 
indeed they seem to accept, then 
it is barer that Ulstermen are 


doing foe talking rather than proposals deliberately vague, in- would prefer to be governed by a 


perfidious Albion. 

As McCusker said: “I would 
like to have sufficient self- 
confidence that if foe Irish 
Republic decided to stick its 
finger into some aspect of life up 
here wifo a view to embarrassing 
us. we would have no difficulty 
sticking our finger into a mul- 
titude of aspects of life in the 
Republic which would equally 
embarrass them.”

TRUST IN PHYSICIANS 


Price of change in water policy Cross-subsidies 

So when it is suggested that a IaqqI fp^c 

paration of functions may be LJil lwg<U 1CC3 


Privacy in the relationships 
between lay citizens and 
experts to whom they turn for 
counsel and solace is a sinew 
of civilized society. A society, 
moreover, which cherishes 
individuals must seek to 
minimize the interference of 
the Slate and its courts in the 
freely-given confidences of 
individuals. The trust ex- 
tended by clients to pro- 
fessional advisers, 

parishioners to priests, pa- 
tients to doctors deserve the 
widest protection. 

The General Medical 
Council is entrusted by stat- 
ute with policing that trust 
Not before time, it realized 
this week that the prosecution 
of Mrs Wendy Savage by the 
Tower Hamlets District 
Health Authority exposed to 
public and prurient gayg 
intimate detail of consulta- 
tion and diagnosis. Revela- 
tion of case details in a public 
forum should at the very least 
have been conditional on the 
agreement of the patients. 

It turns out that the 
tardiness of the GMCs con- 
cern about confidentiality 
might have prejudiced Mrs 
Savage’s defence. There was a 
good deal of publicity of the 
cases before the prosecution 
started; at least one of the 
patients willingly identified 
herself. The tribunal is, 
rightly, to continue in public, 
covering itself with a figleaf 
by referring to cases by 
patients' initials. There are 
lessons here. 

Yet the GMCs interven- 
tion was auspiciously timed. 
For this week it has revised 
the ground rules on which it, 
acting as a proxy for the 
public, expects doctors to deal 
with a troubling class of 
individuals — pubescent girls 
who turn to doctors for 
advice about sex without die 
knowledge of their families. 

The profound ethical issues 
raised by medical counselling 
on contraception fbr teenage 
girls should ' not 
becomerallying points 
sectarians or pretexts 
institutional amour propre. No 
good purpose is served by 
trivializing them. 


Mrs Victoria Gillick distin- 
guished herself last year by 
the energy with which she 
prosecuted her legal challenge 
to medical practice. An 
ambiguity of law was detected 
and eventually — though not 
necessarily permanently — 
settled. 

But neither Mrs Gillick nor 
the British Medical Associ- 
ation are in their own ways 
innocent of pride. Their 
reactions to the General 
Medical Council's stab at 
tidying-up its rules were both 
immoderate. Both were un- 
suited to the jarring complex- 
ities of a real world in which 
doctors are confronted in 
their surgeries by weeping 
child-patients. 

In the House of Lords last 
autumn. Lord Fraser of 
Tullybeilon laid down five 
strong conditions under 
which doctors could lawfully 
dispense personal contra- 
ceptive advice. They were 
strictly worded. Yet their very 
language — words such as 
persuasion and maturity and 
understanding — had to 
reflect the subtleties of human 
behaviour. 

The subsequent revision of 
the GMCs code has made 
more elastic the discretion of 
doctors. The GMCs reason- 
ing, following the advice of its 
lawyers, is that the contrac- 
tual nature of the confidential 
relationship between patient 
and doctor does not hold for 
juveniles who in law and in 
practice are unfitted to enter 
contracts. But the facts of life 
are that some girls younger 
than 16 are sufficiently ma- 
ture in body for sex and may 
be mature enough in mind to 
enter a relationship of trust 
with their doctor. This the 
law provides fbr. And who 
else but the doctor can judge 
maturity ? Where he judges 
his patient immature, the 
contract of confidentiality 
cannot hold. 

The GMCs new rules have 
to provide space for that 
for —judgement, for a multiplicity 
for of possible relationships be- 
tween doctor, patient and. 
necessarily, the patient's 
mother and father. 


ays 

fan 


to protect families ( that 
broad categorization, it 
should never be foigotlen, 
includes the families-in-mak- 
tng of pregnant teenagers ) 
doctors have to be allowed, 
subject to conditions, to by- 
pass the bond of trust that 
ought to link daughters and 
parents. In Great Britain we 
have, our social structure 
different from the American, 
been spared the outcrop of 
teenage pregnancy and illegiti- 
macy which now so worries 
policy makers there. But it 
would be foolhardy com- 
placency not to fear such 
trends or fail to recognize that 
the confident, caring, inter- 
communicating family is 
notuniversal. 

Doctors daily confront the 
fact of teenage sex. If they are 
conscientious they will make 
scrupulous assessments of 
their patients' emotions, at- 
tempt judgement about the 
capacity of their patients to 
understand both fan and 
values and to make, not 
necessarily with sufficient ev- 
idence. assumptions about 
their home circumstances. 

This is to ask a great deal 
of doctors, not all of whom 
are fitted by temperament or 
training for social and per- 
sonal counselling well beyond 
the bounds of conventional 
medical therapy. It is to ask 
them to put on one side their 
own standards, perhaps also 
the dictates of their religion 
and make disinterested 
assessments. It is also to ask 
much indeed of young people, 
in a sorry slate, who may in 
future have no choice but to 
confide in a doctor who 
subsequently might — for the 
best of reasons — betray that 
trust. 

In counselling teenagers 
about sex without the 
involvement of parents doc- 
tors are required to make the 
best of a bad job. They are a 
disciplined profession re- 
quired to make judgements in 
unruly circumstance. The 
GMC has clarified the ground 
rules for them, but possibly at 
the cost of their young and 
uncertain patients. 


From the Chairman of the Water 
Authorities Association 
Sir. Your leading article of 
February 10 is perceptive about 
the very complex issues involved 
in the privatisation of the water 
authorities. Bui I do suggest that 
on one aspect you ask the wrong 
question. 

The water authorities have 
argued consistently far the ap- 
proach that the Government 
have adopted in the White Paper 
- that of privatising the authori- 
ties in tout, with their environ- 
mental and regulatory functions. 
We have always accepted that 
this would need to be subject to 
stringent safeguards, and the 
While Paper provides these in 
terms of the role of the Director 
General, the strong and positive 
system of licencing proposed, and 
the specific power for the 
Secretary of State to require the 
privatised authorities to give 
effect to EEC and national 
environmental policies 
Furthermore, where the actions 
of the privatised authorities 
could adversely affect third 
parties, we suggested, and the 
White Paper embodies, a system 
of appeal, combined with an 
oversight of water authorities' 
own discharges and abstractions 
to ensure even-handed treatment. 
We believe that such a system 
can work, and can work effec- 
tively. 

The trouble about transferring 
the environmental responsibil- 
ities to a new outside public 
body, as you suggest, is that it 
splits the operational manage- 
ment of the system from the 
functions of resource manage- 
ment and environmental regula- 
tion. 

We have experience of just 
such a structure - it existed prior 
to 1973, and it led to grave 
inefficiencies and duplication of 
effort The tensions produced 
were by no means creative, and 
the integration of all the func- 
tions in the water authorities was 
generally seen, both here and 
abroad, as a major step forward. 


separation 
needed to enable privatisation to 
go ahead, the question many of 
us ask is whether such a price 
may not be too high a one to pay 
- that in that case the whole 
policy of privatising the water 
authorities might have to be 
rethought 
Yours faithfully. 

LEN HILL, Chairman, 

Water Authorities Association, 

I Queen Anne’s Gate, SW1. 
February 10. 

From Mr David Green 
Sir. If I want to dig a pond on my 
land I must obtain a licence from 
my water authority. Before I 
stock ray pond with fish I must 
have another licence. Before I 
catch fish I need another licence. 

If water runs off my farm 
buddings and disappears into my 
subsoil I must pay my water 
authority's environmental service 
charge for putting the water into 
the soiL 

But if it pops up again in a 
stream which rises on my land, 
flows through it and discharges 
into the sea without ever going 
outside my boundary I must still 
pay my water authority's 
substantial charges for an abstrac- 
tion licence. And if I pollute my 
stream my water authority will 
prosecute me and I shall be 
heavily fined though I was in no 
way at fault 

Finally if I use my stream to 
drive a water wheel to turn my 
generator I must pay for the 
water I use even though it passes 
on downriver entirety unchanged. 

There will be something to be 
said for privatising the water 
authorities if it rids us of these 
and comparable statutory out- 
rages. But Lord help us if they re- 
main intact in private bands. 
Yours faithfully.

Every five years, the Soviet 
Union indulges itself in self- 
examination as it approaches 
the Congress of its Com- 
munist Party. Often the 
process is little more than a 
formality: congratulations all 
round on excellent 
progres$;confidence that the 
future will bring more of the 
same. 

But once in while, the 
pattern changes to afford d* 
glimpse of the underside of 
Soviet society: the all-perva- 
sive corruption; the poverty 
of the many and the privi- 
leges of the few; the arbitrari- 
ness of authority. And a 
discussion breaks to the 
surface - muted in the 
columns of the newspapers, 
more animated in private - 
about how the vicious circle 
of economic stagnation and 
collective disillusionment can 
be broken. 

A discussion along these 
lines is taking place in the 
Soviet Union at the moment 
before the twenty-seventh 
Congress of the Communist 
Party which opens in two 
weeks' time. With the en- 
couragement of the new 
leadership in the Kremlin, 
there is a mood for change. 

A start has already been 
made, from the top. Since 

Mikhail Gorbachev came to 
power, high offices jhave 
changed hands. The diffuse 
administrative apparatus is 
being pruned and overhauled 
to make the lines of com- 
mand clearer. And at local 
level thousands of communist 
Party officials have been 
dismissed. 

There has even been 
oblique, but unmistakable 
criticism of the previous 
leadership. Leonid Brezhnev 
has attracted official dis- 
approval for having indulged 
in a personality cult and for 
allowing the economy to 
stagnate. There have been 
guarded references to the 
damage done to the country s 
economy and the morale of 
its people in the year 
Konstantin Chernenko was in 
power.And people have 


The new Soviet Party leader, 
Nikita Khrushchev, con- 
cluded proceedings by 
demolishing most of what his 
predecessor had stood for. 
The Stalin era was officially 

at an end. 

It is the ideological heirs of 
those communists who will 
be gathering for their Con- 
gress in Moscow later this 
month, and the circumstances 
of their meeting bear a 
striking resemblance to those 
of thirty years ago. 

Like Khrushchev, Mikhail 
Gorbachev is younger and 
more energetic than his im- 
mediate predecessors. He is 
tired of standing in the wings, 
and be wants action. 

Like Khrushchev, he 
projects himself as a man of 
the people. He visits farms 
and factories, and he talks 
about socialist democracy, 
greater popular participation 
in decision-making and more 
accountable government. 

Like Khrushchev, he is 
keen on economic change. 
And like Khrushchev, he has 
tried to dissociate himself 
from his immediate prede- 
cessors in the Soviet Union’s 
most powerful office and 
compare himself instead with 
that paradigm of Soviet 
leadership, Vladimir Ilyich 
Lenin. 

The parallels between 1956 
and 1986 have prompted the 
thought, and in some circles 
the hope, that the twenty- 
seventh Party Congress, 
which inaugurates the 
Gorbachev leadership, will 
usher in changes no less 
momentous than those prom- 
ised by Khrushchev 30 years 
ago. 

But these hopes are likely 
to be disappointed. Despite 
the superficial similarity, 
Gorbachev is in no sense the 
mould-breaker Khrushchev 
was. Gorbachev’s language 
and style of work accord fully 
with tiie demands and tra- 


wfaeels altogether and install- 
ing in their place mechanisms 
that would be more respon- 
sive to the needs of the late 
twentieth century. 

Hopes feu* change are also 
likely to be disappointed 
because of 
Gorbachev’s 


Gospel to cities 

From the Reverend Prebendary 
Patrick Deamley 
Sir. Your leader, ‘Taking the 
Gospel to the cities** (February 
4), is an encouragement for those 
involved in ministry in inner-city 
areas. Some of ns had begun to 
doubt whether your columnists 
and contributors who have com- 
mented on Faith in the City have 
even been inside a high-rise block 
of fiats, quite apart from having 
any sympathy with the recom- 
mendations proposed by the 
Archbishop’s commission. It is 
good to have your recognition 
that urban mission may require a 
different character from tra- 
ditional patterns of suburban and 
rural Anglicanism. However your 
concluding paragraphs contain 
two. references which call for 
some qualification. 

Firstly, clergy and congrega-

vexatious issue of the disposal of 
surplus buildings, you rightly 
commend their adaptation for 
use as community centres and 
also suggest their conversion to 
flats through private-sector sale. 
This latter course is liable to 
alienate the Church still further 
from the very communities it is 
seeking to serve. What of the 
interest of local residents on low 
incomes who have no opportu- 
nity of buying their own dwelling 
and are compelled to compete 
with thousands to get a high 
points score on the local 
authority's list? 

No action is more galling to 
erstwhile parishioners than to see 
their farmer church purchased by 
a property developer for conver- 
sion to luxury private flats. These 
are in turn sold to highly paid 
professionals who rarely nave 
any intention of establishing real 
roots in the community ana are 
often out of town at weekends. 

You should pause before urg- 
ing the Church to view this trend 
as necessarily a positive contribu- 
tion towards rejuvenating 
community life in the inner city. 
Such a policy particularly af- 
fronts supporters of housing 
associations and other co-op- 
erative housing schemes who

exceptions, borne witness to 
the stultifying effects of So- 
viet bureaucracy, rather than 
to the promised rejuvenation. 

But it is past experience 
that provides the main reason 
why the hopes invested in the 
coming Party Congress are 
likely to remain unrealized. 
Even Khrushchev, with all his 
energy, originality and con- 
tempt for the past, was unable 
to lighten significantly the 
dead weight of ideology on 
Soviet society. He put an end 
to the terror. But he could do 
little more. To re-read 
Khrushchev’s denunciation of 
Stalin, delivered in secret 
session 30 years ago, is to 
realize just how much - not 
how little - of Stalin’s Russia 
lives on. 

Gorbachev has some forces 
for change on his side. He is 
not, as Khrushchev was, in 
conflict with much of the 
Party apparatus, nor is he 
likely to be. He has

Sir, Having just returned from 
three weeks in India I have read 
with interest your leader (Feb- 
ruary 10) on the visits of the 
Pope and the Archbishop to that 
sub-continent. The united 
churches of North and South 
India will be touched by the 
thought that the still divided 
Christians of England are so 
much concerned for unity in 
India. 

Their oxwing churches (one 
diocese of the Church of South 
India has doubled its member- 
ship in ten years) will be 
interested in your advice about 
priorities in evangelism, which 
might perhaps be offered to the 
shrinking churches in England, " 


Their two million members will 
receive the Archbishop with joy, 
affection and honour, but they 
will not ask (as you suggest) for 
“doser incorporation into the 
international life of the Anglican 
family of churches”. They have 

already close and growing rela- 

dons wih a much wider family _ RNTHARD RHODES JAMES, 
of churches. 15 Almoners Avenue, 

I confess that in reading your 
article I was irresistibly reminded 
of the famous poster which (I 
had thought) aptly represented 
the thought of an earlier age: 

“Fog in the Channel; Continent, 
isolated". 


From Mr Donald R. Chilvers 
Sir, May I. as someone who was 
closely involved in the indepen- 
dent review of fees for criminal 
legal aid work at the Bar, 
comment on the two articles 
which have recently appeared in 
your newspaper on this subject 

Both your leader (February 1 1) 
and Mr Levin's article (Febniary 
12) imply an air of unreality in 
the debate. The leader suggested 
that the profession's own conven- 
tions should be streamlined so as 
to achieve greater productivity. I 
think this was also Mr Levin’s 
main purpose. Your leader also 
implied that unreality had crept 
in to the extent that a criminal 
barrister's supplementary income 
from civil work should be taken 
into account. 

The question of productivity is 
a fair one; we would have 
expected it to be raised in any 
negotiations. The Bar are willing 
to address it, but the Lord 
Chancellor's Deportment have 
declined to negotiate and ques- 
tions, of productivity have there- 
fore hot been discussed. 

To suggest that criminal bar- 
risters should cross-subsidize 
their criminal legal aid fees with 
earnings from other kinds of 
work is. however, much more 
dubious. Firstly, it ignores the 
large number of barristers who 
spemalise exclusively in criminal 
work. Secondly, those barristers 
with mixed practices (criminal 
and civil) in fea do little better 
than those who specialise in 
crime. 

Most important, however, is 
that to rely on cross-subsidization 
to enable banisters to achieve 
acceptable incomes is to concede 
that the fee rates for criminal 
foal aid work do not provide 
“lair and reasonable’' rewards - 
although the Lord Chancellor has 
a duty to have regard to this.

Museum charges 

From Mr Peter B. Miller 
Sir, I was interested to read in 
last Tuesday's Times (February 
4) of the “virtual halving" of 
attendances at the Victoria & 
Albert Museum following the 
introduction of a voluntary 
admission fee. 

At the York City Art Gallery 
we suffered a similar experience. 
After introducing an admission 
charge of 20p in 1981 (now 50p) 
attendances fell from 117,000 to 
50,000 and have not really 
recovered since. 

It was therefore an ironic 
coincidence to read the report in 
The Times on the same day that 
it was announced that charges 
were to be abolished at York.

Battles long ago 

From Mr Richard Rhodes James 
Sir. 1 was delighted to see in 
today's feature, “On this 
day"(February 7), an account of 
what the introduction described 
as “military engagements and 
skirmishes" in the far north of 
Burma, and the names of such 
places as Myiikyina, Mogaung 
and Kamaing. 

These were remote places 
indeed and those of us who 
skirmished in them in the last 
war cannot have imagined that 
they would ever again see the 
light of day. 

They recall hardship, but also a 
kind of wild beauty, and also a 
sense that we are a little less 
forgotten.

Jobless figures 

From Mr Paul Convery 
Sir, Your correspondent, Ronald 
Butt (February 6), is ill-advised 
to take as definitive the figures 
for the number of people in self- 
employment in his conclusion 
that the unemployment percent- 
age overstates the truth. Although 
the official labour force total (of 
the I which unemployment is ex- 


pressed as a percentage) excludes 
the self-employed, equally the 
unemployment figures discount 
many out-of-work people. 

Recent reports of rising self- 
employment are based on an 


younger generation of Party 
officials ostensibly on his 
side. He is not, as Khru- 
shchev was, hamstrung by 
officials inherited from the

that some 870,000 extra people 
are seeking work, although they 
are not registered as receiving 
unemployment benefits and do 
not therefore appear in the 
monthly riaimani count, which 
currently stands at 3,407,700. 

Your readers might also recall 
that changes to the counting 
method, introduced in Novem- 
ber. 1982, cause the unemploy- 


ment total to be artificially 
reduced- Using the Unemploy- 
ment Unit's computerised index, 
we calculate an unemployed 
claimant total of 3,801,100 - an 
unemployment rate of approxi- 
mately 15.5 per cent. 

That surely is an alarming 
prospect for the Government.

Short commons 

From Mrs Mary FeUgetl 
Sir. Is Digby Anderson's article 
(February 4) meant to be helpful 
to students, or is the whole thing 
a joke? 

University students as a group 
are intelligent and hardworking. 
They have used these talents to 
pass examinations at school, and 
at university they are deeply 
involved in learning how to 
study further, to assess, to 
concentrate and to absorb more 
advanced concepts. 

In so doing they enhance their 
own lives and those of the 
community they will live in after 
leaving university, both culturally 
and economically. To accomplish 
these things lakes more time and 
hard work than many of their 
contemporaries would find 
acceptable. 

They simply do not have the 
time for selective shopping, nor 
do they have the skills or the 
facilities for the advanced cook- 
ery Mr Anderson suggests. He 
says, “I assume home-made 
bread throughout". 1 suggest he 
tries to make bread with the 
equipment available in a typical 
student residence.

FEBRUARY 14 1872 

The insurrection in Paris began i 
March 187] and the Commune 
was proclaimed on the 28th. On 
May 25 the insurgents murdered 
die Dominicans of Arcueil in the 
Avenue d'halie. On May 28 the 
city was captured by government 
troops ana during the following 
year a number of communists 
were executed for the murders. 


THE 


THE 


MASSACRE OF 
DOMINICANS 

(FROM OUR SPECIAL- 
CORRESPONDENT.) 
VERSAILLES. FEB 11 

It is with the examination of the 
witnesses that the real business of 
the Court-martial may be said to 
begin, and the evidence was 
yesterday unusually to the point. 
A few witnesses were, indeed, 
brought into court who might 
have been much better kept out, 
as they had nothing to say and 
only wasted time; but. on the 
other band, three or four gave 
crushing testimony against at 
least one of the accused - Serizkr. 
Four of the witnesses were 
actually among the hostages 
marked down for slaughter, and 
some of their adventures would be 
almost too startling and improba 
ble for a sensation novel. To the 
first, who came before the Court 
in his Dominican's dress, a white, 
coarse gown of flannel, with black, 
hooded cloak, and whose jovial 
red face, bright eye, and luxuriant 
moustache and beard made the 
F6deres banteringly remark that 
“he would be a capital colonel," I 
have already referred as the priest 
who having changed his eeclesias 
tical for civilian's clothes, was 
enabled to lag behind and escape 
when his Federal escort hurried 
on in a fright out of reach of the 
Versa illais bullets. He could say 
nothing about the actual massacre 
except that he found the bodies of 
his friends bearing marks of the 
most revolting treatment, some of 
which be rWimwl hinmif unable 
publicly to describe; but his 
evidence completely bore out what 
I have already written about the 
plundering of the hostages when 
they were first arrested, and the 
brutal insults and threats which 
were almost incessantly heaped on 
them. Another witness • a priest 
had been with the victims all 
through, and had had an almost 
miraculous escape. When they 
were brought out of prison for the 
last time, he saw the Federal* 
drawn up in the court to receive 
them. load their rifles; and he 
heard a woman near him tell one 
of the men to “keep the trigger 
full -cocked, that not one of the — 

— might escape.” He and the 
rest then received the order to 
leave the court one by one - an or 
der which was not, however 
obeyed, as about eight of the 
priests stepped out together. In an 
instant he heard a volley, and saw 
two of the eight fall to the ground, 
and he then (led, he scarcely 
seems to remember how or where 

- the F£d£i£s firing wildly at him 
as he ran until he was taken into 

house, allowed to change his 
clothes, and kept hidden in the 
cellar for an hour until the 
Versailles troops carried the 
street. He found bullet-holes in 
his coat, but had received himself 
no injury whatever. He attributes 
this marvellous escape to the fact 
that most of the F£d£r£s 
especially the more ferocious - 
were so drunk that near to him as 
they were they could not take 
accurate aim; and besides, as 
every man selected at pleasure his 
own target, a great many shots 
were wasted upon those hostages 
who, being already wounded, 
could not run quickly, to the 
neglect of less conspicuous fugi 
lives who had never been touched 
at all. 

Another witness had had. if 
possible, a still narrower escape. 
When he heard the first volley, 
and saw some of the monks fall, 
he rushed up a staircase close by - 
how many flights of stairs he 
declares he has no recollection - 
but was peremptorily driven down 
again by a woman, who declared 
that be would compromise the 
house and get all its inmates shot 
He ran down at once, and, the 
F6der£s being busy loading and 
firing at the flying or the wounded 
monks, he was able to slip by 
them and get into a cellar. Not 
long afterwards he heard a party 
coming down to search it. and. 
finding a doorway in one of its 
corners, he passed through and 
held the door fast shut from the 
inside while they tried to open it. 
They thought it was locked and 
went away. Fearing another 
search there, he went up into the 

street (I ought, perhaps, to have 

mentioned that he was in lay 

dress, and had therefore a chance 
of passing unnoticed), but was 
soon stopped by three National 
Guards, who wanted him to stand 
up quietly and be shot then and 
there like a good citizen. He 
protested most energetically that 

nothing would induce him to 
consent to being shot until be had 
gone through some sort of trial; 
that he was as good a Republican 
as they were, and that the very 
least they could do was to take 
him to an officer. If the officer 
sentenced him to death, then he 
would stand up with his back to a 
wall and be shot like a citizen and 
a nwft 


Meaningful terms 

From Mrs Henrietta Griffin 
Sir. When in New York some 
years ago, a friend of mine had to 
be taken to hospital very sud- 
denly. I bought him a pair of 
pyjamas and the label inside 
read. "Specially tailored to fit the 
human figure".

It is understood that

Moreover, the collection

' ■ insight into constructing plants

Work conducted on the

design problems which most be 
solved if st roctnres are to

The stresses caused by the 
movement of the geological 
crust in an earthquake have 
presented peculiar problems fiir 
Siemens to solve. 

About 90 per cent of earth- 
quakes are tectonic- those which 
release abrupt stresses to low- 
lying strata of the earth- down 
to a depth of 700 kilometres. 
Subsidence earthquakes caned 
by volcanic actirity are less 
frequent. 

The heriaoncal p rop a g ate d 
wave produced by tectonic 
earthquakes is the principal 
cause of stress and loading on 
any Installation on the earth’s 
surface. 

The additional forces acting 
on equipment ia the power 
station may also be particularly 
severe when the naiaral fre- 
quency of such machinery lies 
within the range at the fre- 
quency range of foe earth-

THE ARTS 


Television 


Channel 4. by its very name, 
declares ihai it is not ITV 
but a station with i 
upmarket profile. But what 
about its popular 
grammes? 

Treasure 


pro- 


Hunt Stirling 
■^Presents a new breed 
game show, one where the 
production team seems 
enjoy itself more than the 
players. But some things 
never change. Excitement is 
genera ted by one of the oldest 
tncks in the book: beating the 
dock. ° 


The contestants in the 
studio desperately decipher- 
ing the riddles were rather 
dull viewing compared 
Anneka Rice, leaping out of 
her helicopter and dashing 
across all manner of terrain 
in search of the vital clues. 
Her exuberance and her 
inimitable Home County ac- 
cent are an important part of 
her appeal, but more impor- 
tant is her smile that lasts the 
entire programme. Long live 
the dizzy blonde. 

Countdown is an afternoon 
programme, involving two 
contestants, performing word 
and number teases, also 
against the clock. In 
yesterday's edition, one of the 
competitors did extremely 
badly, which perhaps ex- 
plains its appeal. 

This is a show where 
failure is glaring and where, 
because contestants are alone, 
back-chat and wise cracks 
cannot be used as a camou- 
flage. It is about as close as 
one gets on television to a 
gladiatorial spectacle with 
winning or losing being the 
true issues at stake, rather 
than playing the game. 

Starting Ont is a drama 
scries of young people. Last 
night's episode "It s Alright 
For Some " was like being 
back in the world of girls' 
weekly comics with their 
puerile division of the world 
into facile stereotypes and 
good versus bad. However, 
because we are in 1986. the 
issues are no longer ballet 
schools or sixth form sneaks 
but trade union rights and 
rape. The overall effect was a 
most embarrassing type of 
bathos. 


This episode gave a false 
and crass impression of the 
world and failed to present 
the complexities which most 
adolescents have grasped. In 
other words, it patronises. A 
return to the land of Buniy 
and Judy is surely going too 
Far in the wrong direction?

Contemporary characters in 
Japanese films spend so 
much time sitting round the 
meal table, quarrelling, gos- 
sipping and quailing sake 
that the English title of 
MasaJd Kobayashi’s latest 
feature — The Empty Table — 
comes almost as a shock. In 
its opening minutes, the 
central character — a father of 
three — returns home to find 
note alerting him to food in 
the fridge. Further into the 
story, Kobayashi makes elo- 
quent visual play with the 
family members standing 


round the bare, oblong table. 
^ ciilk, [.staring out Weakly in differ- 

Carlo Gebler I em directions. 


These are the signs of an 
extraordinary domestic cata- 
clysm. One of the family, a 
student son. has been impris- 
oned for terrorist activities 
after a mountain siege played 
out before the country’s 
television cameras (a real 
event, this, from the early 
1970s). Japanese social codes 
require parents to share their 
offsprings' guilt, but Kidoji. 
the father (played by Tatsuya 
Nakadai — a constant factor 
in the films of Kobayashi and 
Kurosawa), refuses to follow 
the rules. Tight-lipped, he 
strives to pursue a normal 
life, but calamities chase him 
regardless. His wife's sanity 
breaks after an onslaught on 
the goldfish tank, while bis 
daughter marries in secret 
and flees to America. The 
family unit — like the 
goldfish tank — is shattered, 
the table always empty. 

To those who recall the 
flamboyant wide-screen ex- 
citements of Hara-Kiri and 
Rebellion, the muted, clinical 
style of Kobayashi's new film 
may seem a touch cold and 
academic. But the directors 
themes remain unaltered- 
Kidoji joins a long line of 
individuals clashing with 
society’s rules and practices: 
Toshiro Mifune's samurai in 
Rebellion: Tatsuya NakadaTs 
pacifist hero suffering 
through the Manchurian war 
in the towering trilogy The 
Human Condition. Other 


threads link the film to 
Kobayashi's recent documen- 
tary The Tokyo Trial, which 
sifted the embers of Japanese 
militarism in a similarly cool, 
inquisitive manner. 

Kobayashi uses his new, 
spare style to build a claus- 
trophobic universe racked 
with moral conflicts. This is 
narrative cinema swept clean 
of frills, economically con- 
veying moods through the 
bare decor of domestic interi- 
ors (little different from the 
son's surroundings in prison) 
or selected glimpses of nature 
and the seasons. Such a style 
does not give performers 
much leeway, and Tatsuya 
Nakadai's furrowed brows 
remain an acquired taste 
even after 143 minutes. But 
there are many other rewards 
in this magisterial, painful 
film. Every gesture speaks 
volumes: and when the wife 
demolishes the fish tank, it is 
time to hide under the seat. 

This is not the week for 
family life. The documentary 
Streetwise features teenage 
waifs and strays scraping by 
on Seattle's streets while 
ineffective parents languish 
behind bars or the bottle 
(“Don’t bug me — I'm 
drinking!” 1 . The film's roots 
lie in a Life magazine story. 

S iblished in July. 1983. The 
Uowing month, its award- 
winning photographer, Mary 
Ellen Mark, her husband 
Martin Bell, and the article's 


writer Cheryl McCall re- 
turned to put the children's 
lives and thoughts on cellu- 
loid. 

Bell — a British technician 
with useful experience in wild 
life films and rock videos — 
served as the limpet-like 
cameraman-director, clinging 
to his cast from street corner 
to derelict hotel from laun- 
derette to medical clinic. The 
resulting film, conjured up by 
the editor Nancy Baker from 
a teeming 56 hours of 
footage, features nine princi- 
pal players. There is the 
nimble, ingenious Rat dem- 
onstrating how to eat a 
pineapple pizza for nothing 
(order by phone, then re- 
trieve the exotic discard from 
the refuse bin). Other cast 
members include Tiny, a 
prostitute at 14. dreaming of 
owning three yachts: and 
Shadow, a self-styled playboy 
who gives blood for money 
and spends the proceeds on 
tattoos and hair dyes. 

There is raucous humour, 
fragile comradeship and real 
anguish: during the filming, 
one of the participants com- 
mitted suicide. 

Streetwise required much 
technical ingenuity and fancy 
diplomatic footwork. How 
else could the film-makers 
seep like ghosts into prisons 
and funeral parlours, catching 
awful details like the father's 
Coke can resting on his son's 
casket? More importantly. 


Bell and his colleagues found 
the emotional means to meet 
their subjects face to face, to 
gain their trust, share their 
lives and enable them to spill 
out some thoughts in voice- 
over interviews. The result is 
a social study without ser- 
mons or propaganda: a vi- 
brant kaleidoscope of young 
people, unlikely to grow old. 
snatching a living from 
dimes, quarters and their 
own reckless wits. 


pig'T. They also have a 
wonderful backdrop in Man- 
hattan itself; as with Laurel 
and Hardy, there is a special 
magic about the sight of these 
creatures at large in the real 
world. 


“It's totally today and 
tremendously timeless!" 
chirps Kermit the Frog, 
hawking his musical property 
round Broadway in the de- 
lightful Moppets Take Man- 
hattan. The film itself is not 
quite “today” (the American 
premiere was in July. 1984) 
but praise be to the ICA for 
dusting it down for their 
present season “Of Muppets 
and Men” — a comprehen- 
sive survey of Jim Henson’s 
puppet creations, lasting until 
Easier. 

The story is weak, but this 
is a forgivable vice after the 
over-plotted antics of the 
previous Muppet films or the 
stifling pretension of The 
Dark Crystal. Henson's char- 
acters have ample room to 
display their humours, shake 
a leg and join in musical 
numbers whose lyrics would 
appal Lorenz Han (“Because 
you share a love so big. I now 
pronounce you frog and 


Spies Like Us is a depress- 
ing slab of would-be comedy 
from some of America's most 
popular practitioners: Chevy 
Chase. Dan Aykroyd and the 
director John Landis, all 
graduates of the Saturday 
fright Live television show. 
Esoteric cameos proliferate: 
surely the general patron 
cares little that Costa-Gavras. 
the director of Missing, plays 
one of the men on highway 
patrol. The unbilled appear- 
ance of Bob Hope is no 
funnier, but at least this 
kindles memories of the 
Road films, to which this lazy 
film pays half-hearted hom- 
age- Chase assumes the Bob 
Hope role — a government 
clerk on a spy mission, 
wriggling out of hoi spots 
with wisecracks; the pug- 
faced. dishevelled Aykroyd, 
however, hardly fills Bing 
Crosby's shoes. In the final 
shots the boys are at Geneva, 
deciding our fates by playing 
T rivial Pursuits with the 
Russians. So this is the way 
the world ends: not with a 
bang, not with a whimper, 
but with a groan.

Dance 


Raw edges 


Paul Clayden 
Dancers 

ICA 


A programme by the Paul 
Gayden Dancers at Riverside 
Studios on Wednesda) 
opened both a new tour for 
the performers and a week of 
several diverse dance events 
on that stage. 

Gayden's presentation is 
very professionally arranged 
and shows his work to the 
best possible advantage: some 
good lighting effects, varied 
and attractive costumes by 
Alan John, no time lost 
between items. He is also 
blessed in his fellow-dancers. 
Tall, cool Charlotte Hacker 
and small, neat Elizabeth 
Lauren are both smooth, 
stylish dancers: more so in 
fact than Gayden himself, 
whose movement has a 
curiously raw edge to iL 

He makes the most of that 
in his choreography, devising 
passages of oddly rough, 
strange movement The pur- 
pose obviously is to express 
them, an impression con- 
firmed by the specific, if not 
always apparently relevant 
programme notes to the two 
main pieces on show. There- 
in lies a problem: just what it 
is that Clayden and his 
collaborators are trying to tell 
us never becomes clear. It is 
as if they were talking 
fluently and vehemently, but 
in gibberish. 

So we watch him scram- 
bling on and off a chair, or 
shuffling across the floor like 
a wounded crab: we listen to 
the eclectic soundtracks de- 
vised and prepared by Del 
Collie with Clayden's’ help; 
we see him and the Misses 
Hacker and Lauren display 
their ability to roll across the 
stage, stare threateningly at 
their audience or shake their 
shoulders in jazzy manner. It 
passes the time more agree- 
ably than many shows of this 
kind. 

But the most memorable 
and entertaining moments 
are theatrical, not choreo- 
graphic: a slow, fake bicycle 
ride without a machine, an 
episode when, modestly sil- 
houetted behind gauze, the 
dancers make an amusingly 
quick costume change on 
stage. Clayden has not very 
much content to offer but it 
is beautifully wrapped.

London 
Sinfonietta/- 
Masson 
Logan Hall 


Good reviews of concerts can 
be maddening to read, telling 
you about yet more of life’s 
little opportunities you let 
slip. This one. though, is 
going to be different The 
London Sinfonietta are now 
taking on tour the excellent 
programme they gave in 
London on Wednesday night 
and can be heard at various 
points in the Midlands, 
North and West Anybody 
within earshot should take a 
rain check on how music is 
sounding just now. 

I owe the meteorological 
metaphor to Torn Takemitsu, 


whose Rain Coming and 
Rain Spell are the overtures 
for die two halves of the 
evening. Both are in the 
sweet boneless manner of 
other recent music by him 
heard here since fashion went 
his way, with Rain Coming 
being particularly indebted to 
Messiaen while its compan- 
ion Spell, for flute and 
clarinet with harp, vibra- 
phone and piano, is more 
ratified. 

Neither piece does any- 
thing to increase my enthusi- 
asm for this composer.but 
both work prettily enough in 
their contexts, to quieten the 
mind before the heftier dra- 
mas of Harrison Birtwistle 
and Kurt Weill 

The Birtwistle piece is his 
Secret Theatre , a big work 
which has already made a big 
impression. Birtwistle’s 


achievement here js to con- 
ceive and execute, not for the 
first time, a quite new 
musical scheme of things: the 
piece is a solo with accompa- 
niment except that the “solo” 
line, a long instrumental 
incarnation, is performed by 
changing numbers of players 
in unison, who set them- 
selves apart at a special row 
of music stands. 

This at once changes the 
nature of solo performance, 
giving it an objective hard- 
ness, urgency and force. One 
wonders what a Brahms 
violin concerto, for instance, 
might sound tike played by a 
well rehearsed quartet of 
soloists. 

But that is not all. 
Birtwistle further re-animates 
the concerto medium by 
making the two sides very 
different but equally interest- 


ing. Where the solo is 
practically continuous melo- 
dy. the accompaniment is a 
stuttering mechanism of 
rhythmic figures. So is avoid- 
ed the debilitating tendency 
for accompaniments to be 
merely background washes. 
Of course the two worlds 
collide and confuse one 
another that is the work’s 
plot. 

But it can be a fascinating, 
witty and richly inventive 
encounter only because the 
ground rules are set so 
precisely. It is powerfully and 
sensitively enacted by the 
London Sinfonietta under 
Diego Masson; one admires 
too the fierce suavity of their 
performance of Weill’s Little 
Threepenny Music , and in- 
dulges the odd bit of camp.

Cals may prowl amongst the 
pigeons as standards and 
priorities are hotly debated in 
certain prominent areas of 
eariy-music making, but Paul 
Steinitz and the London Bach 
Society walk steadily past 

In nearly 30 years, the 
cycle has moved in its own 
gently mysterious way with 
the performing styles of the 
times. It would be a superhu- 
man. if not inhuman, phe- 
nomenon if ail the variables 
■ had remained constant But 
the stubbornly erratic use of 
period instruments and the 
even less reliable standard of 
solo singing still manages to 
push the venture into the 
middle of the road in 
execution if not in intention. 

In Wednesday's concert so 
much was given — the chance 
to hear cantatas t36, 1 13 and 
99 - and so much snatched 
awav. The opening chorus of 
number 136. “Erforsche micb 
Gott” with its horn solo 
moving like light gold thread 


through its nimble string 
playing and choral singing, 
raised expectations danger- 
ously high. 

For only Peter Savidge was 
able to free his recitative 
from its lumpen continuo: 
Wynford Evans and Paul 
Esswood could only strain to 
match Tess Miller's deli- 
ciously phrased oboe 
d’amore. 

Bach's miracle of giving 
musical voice in simulta- 
neous dance and dirge to 
Cantata l!3’s unique expres- 
sion of the paradoxical crux 
of Christianity, was recreated 
• nicely in Steinitz's choice of 
tempi and balance of solo 
solemnity with dancing en- 
semble. 

But, as in Cantata 99, 
another, less welcome con- 
trast pushed its way in, as the 
leaping raptures of Ingrid 
Culliford's flute obbligato 
disassocated itself from the 
ill-phrased and worse sup- 
ported vocalising of Wynford 
Evans and the valiant but 
bewildered singing of Lynda 
RusselL

Players/Vasary

When the Arts Council ap- 
plies its assorted intellects to 
the business of running the 
South Bank, six weeks hence, 
one hopes that selTdefeating 
repertoire clashes will be- 
come rarer. Music critics, 
who thoroughly enjoy mak- 
ing invidious comparisons, 
may relish the chance to heat 
two of London's chamber 
orchestras, both directed by 
“pianisi/conductors”, per- 
forming Beethoven concerts 
within four days of each 
other. But the London Mo- 
zart Players under Tam as 
Vasary would surely have 
attracted a far bigger crowd 
had the ECO and Barenboim 
not been offering similar fare 
this weekend. 

The LMP certainly de- 
served a better house. For the 
last couple of seasons it has 
played like a rejuvenated 
band. It is amazing what a 
small adjustment, like a 
sweeping change of person- 


nel. can do for an orchestra’s 
sound. 

In Beethoven's Symphony 
No 4 the violins perhaps 
lacked the ideal tonal sheen 
for the Adagio’s gliding 
melody, and at one point in 
the bustling finale there 
seemed the possibility of an 
exciting divergence between 
from and back desks. But 
generally the strings played 
with spirit and finesse. 


What gives the orchestra 
character, however, are some 
outstanding individuals in 
the woodwind. Throughout 
the symphony Vasary wisely 
ensured that their contribu- 
tions floated easily through 
the texture; the poignant 
phrasing at the Adagio's 
hushed conclusion and the 
richly-blended chording in 

the Trio were particularly 
telling passages. Otherwise he 
took a happily Haydnesque 
view of the work; small-scale 
in dramatic terms but 
sprightly in articulation.

Directing from the key- 
board in the Fourth Piano 
Concerto he seemed less 
certain. His own playing was 
sharp-edged, impulsively var- 
ied in tempo, occasionally 
over-driven (as in a needless- 
ly frantic first movement 
cadenza) but always stimulat- 
ing. He failed, though, to 
convey this spirit to the 
players around him. and 
sometimes also dominated 
the balance when thematic 
interest lay elsewhere. 


For a writer with a gut- 
loathing for middle-class dec- 
adence, Doug Lucie has 
wound up in the classic 
position of pleasuring the 
people he would like to 
wound. 

Such spectators, as Dario 
Fo once pointed out, like 
nothing better than being 
spanked: and last night's 
audience duly responded 
with the knowing giggles of 
people who feel they are 
being got at and relish every 
minute of it 

Set in the depraved depths 
of St John’s Wood, Progress

lent of the Isle of Wight

we’ve progressed”, says WiU.

main energies now go into 
running a men's group whose 
members meet to thrash out 
their altitudes to pornogra-

Ronnee. his wife, occupies 
herself with a women's centre

victim has laken refuge in the 
house; much to the lecherous 
interest of the other lodger, a 
tabloid journalist who de- 
lights in making coarse sexist 
mock of his long-toothed, 
lefty hosts. 

At its 1984 Bush premiere, 
ihe first act may have been a 
miracle of timing and attack. 
In David Hayman’s produc- 
tion it comes over as an 
exercise in low-energv in- 
crimination. Everything in

outside the French doois. is 
underlined as yet another 
piece of damning evidence. 
And the dialogue is studded 
with trendspeak, every phrase 
verbally italicised to raise 
sniggers from the house. 

When, finally, the plot does 
engage, it is to offer a 1980s 
variation on the old contrast 
between what people do and 
what they say about it. Will's 
group, for instance, meet for 
open discussion and mutual 
support* while in fact one of 
the boys is stealthily shifting 
his homosexual favours be- 
tween the other two. 

As for poor battered Angc 
(Michele Winstanley). the 
opening contrast between her 
bruiul mechanic husband and 
her refined NW6 hosts un- 
dergoes a summary reversal. 
Lenny, the husband (Peny 
Fenwick) at least writes 
poems to her. Will simply 
seduces her over a game of 
backgammon. 

As an epidemic of betrayals 
and desertions spreads 
through the characters, the 
piece reaches its end in a 
ghastly barbecue party which 


finally strips them of their 
last claims to civilizing intel- 
ligence and affection. Mr 
Lucie will not thank me for 
the comparison, but the effect 
is strongly reminiscent of the 
early malicious stories of 
Angus Wilson. 


As the central couple. 
Diana Quick and Mike 
Gwilym achieve a certain 
gritty sardonic authenticity 


from characters conceived in 
contempt. As the pace of the 
show revved up. I enjoyed 
Peter Wight as a love-lorn 
buffoon riding high on vali- 
um. and Struan Rodger as 
the amiably unfeeling Bruce 
who secures some respect in 
Mr Lucie's scheme by never 
becoming attached to any- 
body.

Suntory make the world’s top selling whisky. 

A similar achievement by Honda began the 
death knell of our motorcycle industry 20 years ago. 

Like the motorcycle industry of today, die 
international drinks business of tomorrow will be 
ruled by giants. 

And if Scotch Whisky is to compete, or even 
exist in the future, we must marshal our own 
considerable forces today. 

It is for this reason, above all, that our offer for 
Distillers makes so much sense. 

We will be of a size to take on our foreign 
adversaries toe to toe. 

Our opinion is that Argyll, on the other hand, 
would make a less than perfect fit with Distillers. 


Their background is in discount retailing, not 
in the marketing of premium brands. 

And they have little or ho experience of the 
stiff competition encountered in today’s inter- 
national drinks market. 

Britain’s recent industrial history is a cat- 
alogue of international opportunities missed. 

Only Guinness can save us from the current 
Japanese threat.

Imperial, the brewing to- 
bacco and foods group fight- 
ing a £1.8 billion bid from 
Hanson Trust, has forecast 
1956 pretax profits of £290 
milboa, a rise of 23 per cent 
on 1985. 

The ■ estimate was higher 
than the most b ullish Qty 
expectations and Imperial 
shares rose 6p to 29 lp. The 
dividend is forecast to rise 25 
per cent to 12p net. Hanson 
shares eased lp to 153p. 

1 Imperial also announced 
that Mr Geoffrey Maitland 
Smith, who is chairman and 
chief executive of Sears and a 
nonexecutive director of Im- 
perial, will become deputy 
chairman, and Mr Michael 
Pickard, the chairman and 
chief executive of the brewing 
and leisure division, will be- 
come group deputy chief exec- 
utive; 

Mr Maitland Smith wifi 
head a board committee to 
look for a successor to Mr 
Geoffrey Kent, the chairman, 
when be retires in 1987. Sir 


Hector Laing, chairman of 
United Biscuits, was to have 
become chairman of the com- 
bined Imperial and UB until 
the merger was referred to the 
Monopolies Commission. 

Mr Kent yesterday, turned 
down a request for a meeting 
from Lord Hanson, the chair- 
man of Hanson . Trust. Lord 
Hanson had wanted to try to 
agree conditions for a recom- 
mended bid, but Imperial 
replied: “ Wc cannot see that a 
meeting would be useful”. Mr 
Kent sakfc“We feel very bull- 
ish about seeing off this bid.” 

Before Imperial anni^iniwi 
its profits forecast, Hanson 
Trust had issued six questions 
to ask about those forecasts. 
Hanson queried the high level 
of Imperial's extraodinary 
hems over the past five years, 
the amount of profit from pub 
sales, the “growth” from loss 
elimination after the sale of 
Howard Johnson in America, 
the amount to be spent on 
advertising this year, the as- 
sumptions On industrial dis- 



Geofifrey Kent: rejected 
request for meeting 
putes, which lopped £1 1.5 
million off profits in 1985, and 
whether there would be any 
change in pension contribu- 
tions policy. 

Imperial replied that there 
would be no material extraor- 
dinary items this year, no cut 
iu advertising no change in 
pension policy and assump- 


tions of no major industrial 
disputes. It quantified sales of 
retail properties at £20 million 
against £13.6 million in 1985 
and added that the increase in 
property profits would do 00 
more than keep pace with the 
increase in trading profits. 
Imperial accepted Hanson's 
figures of £13 million loss 
elimination from Howard 
Johnson in a full year, but said 
the figures were in its defence 
docucmenL 

Imperial broke down its 
forecast to show the brewing 
and leisure division increasing 
operating profits by 34 per 
cent to £130 million, foods up 
by 36 per cent to £45 million 
and tobacco up 2 per cent to 
£125 million. 

Hanson Trust has until 
Thursday to come back witb a 
higher offer. The City believes 
it will have to pay about 31 Op 
to 32 Op per share and change 
the structure of its offer by 
adding cash and reducing the 
quantity of convertible loan 
stock. 


Radamco 
bids for 
Haslemere 

By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent 

Radamco Property, a divi- 
sion of the £6 billion Robeco 
Group, the Dutch fund man- 
agement company, is making 
a £179 million bid for 
Haslemere Baatwi 
The cash offer of 600p for 
each Haslemere ordinary 
share shows a 7.55 per cent 
discount to the company's last 
reported net asset value. A 
revaluation of the properties is 
likely with net asset value 
estimated to come through at 
about 690p a share. 

Haslemere has a high expo- 
sure to office development in 
the City of London and 
throughout the country. 

Klein wort Benson, the mer- 
chant bank advising 
Radamco, says the company 
has increased it^ stake -nom 
11.7 per cent to just over 24 
per cent lnsUtutronal share- 
holders sold to IGeunrart at 
the 600p figure but market 
dealings yesterday were at 
629p a share. 

Haslemere was doseted in 
talks with Radamco last night, 
and there was hope that the 
bid would be agreed despite 
Haslemere's earlier rejection. 

If Radamco succeeds in 
acquiring Haslemere, it is 
likely that there wifi be a 
change -of management. 
Radamco Property, with £500 
mfilion of assets, has not ruled 
out the possibility of injecting 
new management from The 
Netherlands. 

The company says that, 
spite Haslfcmere's recent 
iderperfonnance compared 
with the rest of the sector, the 
acquisition would give it ex- 
posure to the booming City of 
London office market. 

The takeover of Haslemere 
would also give Robeco the 
chance to funnel Dutch insti- 
tutional money into British 
property. Dutch funds are 
again keen to invest in the 
sector. 


Societies Bill 
‘restrictive* 

The new Building Societies 
BUI, now at the committee 
stage in Parliament, is too 
restrictive, Mr John Spalding, 
chief executive of the biggest 
building society, the Halifax , 
claimed yesterday. 

He said that he believed 
that the committee would 
relax some of the provisions, 
particularly those on societies 
c hang in g mto public compa- 
nies. 



The fall and fall 
of the dollar 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


The dollar has takes over 
from staling as the weakest 
major currency. Yesterday, it 
dropped to 183 against the 
yen, its lowest for nearly eight 
years. It also fell to 235 
against the mark. The pound, 
with; its own problems, is 


ht^fing comfortably .above 
$1.40. 

Previous dollar foils have 
been associated with the threat 
ef new moves to pash it down 
by the central banks acting in 
concert or the release of 
information suggesting eco- 
nomic weakness, and hence 
lower interest rates, in the 
United StatesJVeither apply 
in this case. 

So why is the dollar bsmg 
ground, particularly against 
the yen when this week it has 
folks below 185, its lowest 
smee 1978, and the mark? 

The first explanation is to 
do with the foil in oil prices. In 
the inter na t io n al pecking or- 
der of major currencies Japan, 
entirely dependent on import- 
ed oEL is the main beneficiary 
of lower ofl prires, fallowed by 
Germany. Britain and the 
United States, as industrial- 
ized countries also in the 
business of prodndng oil, are 
Ae losers. And, as Mr David. 
Morrison, the currency econo- 
mist at the stockbroker Simon 
& Coates points out, the 
relative position of the dollar 
and sterimg in the event of 
lower oil prices is not as dear- 
cut as first appears. 

Britain loses out directly on 
the current account of the 
balance of payments but the 
United States, by rirtne of the 
fact that most Opec cash is 
held in dollars, could lose out 
on capital account in tire event 
of major divestments by the oil 
producers. 

A fall m the oil price hits 
both the dollar and sterling 
relative to tire yen and mark, 
it comes at a time when the 
markets have already turned 
against the dollar, then, traHke 
the pound, which has recov- 


ered some of its oil-related 
losses, tire downward trend for 
the dollar is Hkety to continue. 

A second reason for the 
dollar's dfrihr relates to the 
fact that, sooner or later, 
cmrenries will tend to move 
towards some sort of underfy- 
ing economic value. 

Traditionally, economists 
calculated the purchasing 
power parities of currencies by 
co mp ar in g relative inflation 
rates. A more sophisticated 
method, the ftmdamental equi- 
librium approach, takes into 
account capital movements, 
and structural change, as well 
as relative price performance. 

A London consultancy. Cur- 
rency Research Ltd, uses a 
similar method to calculate 
fundamental equilibrium val- 
ues for exchange rates, that is 
what the exchange rate should 
be for medium-term external 
balance in both current and 
capital accounts. 

Mr Michael Nisbet, direc- 
tor of Currency Research, says 
that, on the basis of an ml 
■ price of $17-18 a bared, the 
fundamental equilibrium ex- 
change rates for the dollar are 
Y165, DM2.00 and $135 to 

ftiA pound. 

In other words, if the mar- 
kets are bent on pushing the 
dollar down to levels at which 
the huge imbalances in the 
United States’ external ac- 
counts begin to be corrected - 
there was a record trade deficit 
of $1735 billion in December - 
the dollar has further to go 
down. 

This is not to say tint the 
move towards a “correct” valu- 
ation for the dollar will be 
smooth. The recent history of 


gests that the dolllar is fikely 
to go below its eqtrifihriiuu 
value in the traditional over- 
shooting pattern. 

It is hard to see an earfy and 
significant break in the 
market's present bearish atti- 
tude to the dollar. 


IoD chief 
hits car 
talks han 

By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 

The Prime Minister was 
csierday sharply cricitizcd 
or not allowing the Ford and 
Austin Rover merger talks to 
continue. 

Sir John Hoskyns, the for- 
mer head of her Downing 
Street Policy Unit and now 
director general of the Insti- 
tute of Directors, said the 
decision to halt the takeover 
discussions showed the 
Government's lack of resolve 
and the “strategic confusion” 
and disagreement wi thin Mrs 
Thatcher’s Cabinet. 

He said the Westland and 
BL affairs had shown the 
Cabinet to be made of “those 
who think it through” and 
those who wait for something 
to happen and then react. 

Sir John said the institute 
felt the Government had 
“never been radical enough in 
the first place”. He said al- 
though the Government had 
done some extremely benefi- 
cial things, many others had 
not been carried through to 
logical conclusions, for exam- 
ple, the reform of the state 
pension schemes and student 
loans — “radical reform fal- 
tered at the last minute”. 

To Sir John, the confusion 
over BL was more puzzling 
than the Westland affair be- 
cause Britain was not in the 
volume car making business— 
BL managed to capture only 
18 per cent of the market — 
and it bad never been in it on a 
global scale. 

“So the idea that the Gov- 
ernment can decide not to sell 
the volume car business as 
and when it gets a reasonable 
bid doesn't nuke sense. Soon- 
er or later, it is bound to 
happen," Sir John said. 


Leyland tops 
truck sales 

UK sales of heavy Bedford 
trucks fell last month to 464, 
down from 591 a year earlier, 
and Leyland took the market 
leadership from Ford with 748 
$al«s up from 705. 

January heavy truck sales 
were 4,415, down from 4,565 
in 1985. 

Ford’s heavy vehicle sales 
also fell but it mainatiqed its 
lead in the commercial vehicle 
market with a sales figure of 
5,527 (24.1 per cent); Ley laud 
followed with 4,285 (18.7 per 
cent); and then, GM/Bedford 
with 3,879 (16.9 per cent). 


Clark vows duty before prejudice

Beecham will not be 
purged without a bid 


Bid fever is helping to keep the 
stock market's temperature high. 
Some rumours of impending take- 
overs are too rash to be contem- 
plated, even in a market where 
belief has been largely suspended. 
Others, rightly, refuse to lie down. 
In the second category is Beecham 
Group, the food and pharmaceutical 
company which by the admission of 
its own board last November had 
lost its way and in the opinion of 
close Beecham observers is no 
longer equipped to find it again 
unaided. 

For the record, the last formal 
denial provoked by bid speculation 
was made on January 30. No 
takeover or merger discussions 
“have been held and the company 
knows of no circumstances which 
indicate that a bid is under 
contemplation". 

The watershed in Beec ham’s 
affairs was in November when Lord 
Keith of Castleacre unceremo- 
niously ditched Sir Ronald Halstead 
and blamed him for the short- 
comings he perceived in Beec ham’s 
management performance over the 
two preceding years. Lord Keith has 
fair claims to be the judge of what is 
right for Beecham, even though, by 
implication, his judgement in 
appointing Sir Ronald to the senior 
executive position was at fault. 

Through Iazge trust holdings of 
Beecham shares, he has a special 
responsibility. It has cot escaped 
notice that in appointing John Robb 
to be the new chief executive. Lord 


Keith and the rest of the Beecham 
board have chosen a mirror image 
of the deposed Sir Ronald. It is 
therefore hardly surprising that the 
market has drawn the inference that 
Lord Keith is not looking to a 
painful, slow process of rehabilita- 
tion, more to a rapid revival of in- 
terest in Beec ham’s value. This view 
is reinforced by the number of 
senior Beec ham executives who are 
beating paths to other companies' 
doors. 

As the name of the takeover game 
is now “Brands", Unilever cannot 
fail to be interested in acquiring 
Beecham. It would not want a 
contest,, however. Smith, Kline is 
known to be interested in Beec ham’s 
pharmaceutical division but dis- 
memberment is hardly in Beecham's 
best interest. The most intriguing 
would-be bidder is ICI. For it to ac- 
quire Beecham would indicate a 
very serious, and necessary, 
commitment to major growth in 
pharmace uticals. 

Beecham is now officially 
committed to a policy of “not 
commenting on market rumours”. 
Nonetheless it would be foolish for 
the board not to appreciate that this 
once great company is now in a 
state of unstable equilibrium. The 
sooner this state is brought lo an 
end. the better. Meanwhile Beecham 
shareholders should keep their 
holdings and await events. They 
should not have to wait too long for 
the air to dear. 


Fog over money supply 


The fog that descended upon the 
City with the publication of the 
provisional money supply numbers 
last week, stubbornly refused to 
clear yesterday. The money supply 
numbers were good and nobody, not 
even the Bank of England, was quite 
sure why. 

Final money supply figures for 
banking January showed a sterling 
M3 rise of 0.1 per cent, even better 
than the 0.25 per cent rise originally 
estimated. Narrow money, MO, rose 
by 1.4 per cent, it is true, but not 
even the Chancellor, spared the 
embarrassment of another base rate 
increase, was going to worry about 
that 

Bank lending managed a paltry 
£370 million nse, after an average 
monthly increase of £2 billion over 
the previous three months. This was 
the counterpart which the majority 
of City economists fell down on in 
their guesses of the January money 
numbers. 

The City’s “Young Turks” seized 
hungrily on yesterday’s figures from 
the Bank hoping to spot the 
deliberate mistake. Unfortunately, 
even* suspicions about the January 
seasonal adjustments appeared to be 
without very firm foundation. * 

There was, as Malcolm Roberts of 
Laing and Cruickshank pointed out. 


.a substantial cashing in of both 
certificates of tax deposit and 
Treasury bills in banking January, 
on the expectation of further interest 
rate rises in the future. 

Peter Fellner, of James Capel, 
took the view that the erratically 
low bank lending figure of £370 
million could be explained by a 
natural pause for breath after the 
very sharp rises of recent months. 
This was not to. say that similarly 
insipid bank lending figures could 
be expected to continue. The rush to 
invest on 1985/86 capital allow- 
ances, in particular, was likely lo 
boost March and April lending. 

That there was also a true, if not 
an underlying fall in the reserves, 
also showed up in the external 
financing of the public sector. The 
authorities, while relieved that the 
right set of money numbers came up 
at the right time, were offering no 
assurances that this was the begin- 
ning of a new era in which a 
revitalized and credible broad 
money target could be introduced at 
Budget time. 

The Chancellor was much more 
likely to be devoting the monetary 
policy section of his Budget speech 
to an explanation of what went 
wrong rather than self-congratula- 
tion because things have suddenly 
come right

Rolls-R o yce is 



tour means, 

we sugges t you a c quire a used 


Silver Spirit and a new accountant , 


One day, you say. you’ll oivn a 
Rolls-Royce. But not’ says vour 
accountant, just yet. 

This advertisement will show you 
that your accountant is wrong, it 
would like to suggest that the day on 
which you mark your life's 
achievements by becoming the owner 
of the best car in the world may be 
only weeks away. 

It would, in short. like to draw 
your attention to the compelling case 
in favour of buying a used RoIIs- 
Rovce. 


THE FINANCIAL CASE 

For between £20.000 and £35,000 
for example, you can have a choice of 
Silver Shadow or Silver Spirit. It will 
be a magnificent example of Rolls- 
Royce engineering, craftsmanship and 
comfort. It will also be protected bv 
the exclusive Warranted mechanical 
insurance scheme, available only from 
authorised distributors. 

Depreciation on a car you buv at 
this price is often negligible over the 
first few years of ownership. (Earlier 
this year one authoritative trade value 
guide noted significant rises in 
residual values of Silver Spirit and 
Silver Spur motor cars.) 

Buy a very good Rolls-Royce, 
maintain it well, drive it for two years 
and you will have the greatest 
motoring pleasure of your life. What's 
more the rates of depreciation of other 
cars at similar prices will leave vou in 
no doubt about the financial 
advantages of your two years of 
ownership of a used Rolls-Royce. 

THE TECHNICAL CASE 

Rolls-Royce say a car with 100.000 
miles on the clock is ‘nicely run in.’ 
Every' Rolls-Royce engine is assembled 
by hand and is engineered for long 



years of trouble-free motoring. 

The Silver Spirit is typical of the 
magnificent cars available to the 
buyers of a used Rolls-Royce. It is the 
latest and the most technically 
advanced Rolls-Royce ever made. The 
automatic air-conditioning system can 
cope with the climatic variations of a 
journey from the North Pole to the 
Equator, without adjustment. And the 
suspension system is so sensitive that 
it even compensates for the gradual 
emptying of the petrol tank. 

THE CORPORATE CASE 

The Silver Spirit also represents a 
sound investment for vou and vour 
company in a less tangible way. A 
recent survey into the attitude of the 
public towards the Rolls-Royce car 
showed exactly what you'd expect: 
that 80% of people asked consider a 
Rolls-Royce to tx? the car most 
representative of quality and 78% 
believe it inspires wide respect. A 
Rolls-Royce still speaks volumes aboutj 
the success and confidence of a

tion of the sale. 

Hambros Bank is in the

with the recent split of inter- 
ests within the Hambro fam- 
i!y.

like to stay within the confines 
of the Square Mile, although it 
says it is interested in

The Frankfurt skyline is set to change as developers respond to as improving West 

German economy.

“The best car in the worW. from authoris'd 
Rolls-Royce and Bentley dealers of Great Britain 


which is involved in two of 
London's significant property 
deals — in the City and Oxford 
Street — is looking towards 
West Germany. 

Improving conditions there 
are encouraging foreign inves- 
tors, particularly the Japanese 
and Dutch, to turn their 
attention to some of West 
Germany’s major cities. 

Weatherali Green and 
Smith, in its latest look at the 
West German market, pre- 
dicts that 1986 and 1987 will 
be better than last year. Confi- 
dence in the country and its 


economy, allied to a strong 
mark, is boosting property as 
well as the stock market 

Weatherali says there will 
be good development oppor- 
tunities in West Germany 
because hurriedly built post- 
war offices are now nearing 
the end of their lives and 
indigenous growth from 
Germany's banking sector 
could lead to the development 
of out-of-town business parks. 

The estate agent believes 
that at least one of Germany's 
top banks will lead the way by 
developing 200.000 square 
feet on the edge of Frankfurt, 
the main banking centre. But 


it does not see Frankfurt 
attracting large overseas bank- 
ers and thereby stealing the 
City of London's limelight 


Top level monthly rents of 
DM35 (£10.60) a square metre 
are the norm in the heart of 
Frankfurt’s banking centre, 
but there is an increasingly 
wide gulf between prime and 
secondary offices. 

Prime investment yields are 
around 4.75 percent but once 
schemes are over the DM80 
million to DM100 million 
price range, significant yield 
discounts will begin to oper- 
ate. 


London & Edinburgh

company run by die 
Beckwith brothers, has tem-

ment at Hook, Surrey. 

LET knows it is in for a 
planning battle on Hook 
which raises not only die 
issue of Ant-of-town retailing, 
but also development in 
the sacrosanct Green Belt. 

But M & S has indicated 
that it and other retailers 
would be keen to take 
space in the development if 
the scheme receives plan- 
ning consent. The property

ning application for Iks 93- 
aoe site but it knows that 
a public inquiry wBI be a nec- 
essary part of the fight to 
get the project off the ground. 

LET has already ac- 
quired half the site and has 
options, yet to be signed, 
for land which will give it 90 
per cent of the scheme. 

The developer proposes 
to build a two-storey scheme 
set in a wen-landscaped 
site overlooking a lake. 

Space has been set aside 
for 500,000 sq ft of space to be

official reason for coming io 
London is that the company 
wants to expand outside 
America and regards it as a 
good international base. It 
also seems that the American 
authorities would not have 
allowed the company to come 
to the market with its privi- 
leged voting strncure intact. 

The voting structure gives 
manag ement 60 per cent of 
the votes. So investors who 
buy shares in Templeton are 
always going to be in the 
minority. The company 
nntil now. been run by one 
man, who is still very active- 
but by necessity will retire, 
shortly. 

On the plus side there is the 
huge potential of the Ameri- 
can savings market. 
Templeton has a good record 
in attracting funds and now 
has nearly $7 billion (£5 
billion) under management. 
Its investment record has 
been good, although some of 
the funds have 
underperformed the Morgan 
Stanley Capital International 
World Index. 

Earnings per share, 
exludfog investment gains, 
have grown at 40 per cent a 
year on average for five years. 

The shares are being of- 
fered at 215p each, valuing 
the whole at £344 million. 
That represents a historic - 
rautiple of 20 times earnings 
which looks high, given the. 
risks of international fund* 
management. But underwrit- 
ers were apparently qnojeing 
for the privilege. 

They may have mixed,, 
motives,- with at jeast some- 
attracted, by the 'praSpect of! 
additional investment busf-r 
ness, but their interest should: 
nevertheless ensure the offer! 
is a success in the current boll [ 
market. I 

The prospectus is on pages* 
29 to 33. 

Williams/ 

McKechnie 

£ 

If Argyll and Elders can bid 
for larger companies, so can 
Williams Holdings. 

Williams, the four-year-old 
creation of accountants Mr 
Nigel Rudd and Mr Brian 
McGowan, is dearly un- 
daunted by its infancy and 
size. Yesterday it launched a 
£144 million bid for 
McKechnie Brothers. 

The bid follows hard on the 
heels of the £11.5 million 
acquisition of Raw] plug from 
Bunnah Oil and the £73 
million purchase of Spencer 
Dark Metal Industries. Its 
timing seems to reflect both 
the recent strength of Wil- 
liams shares and the feet that 
its hit squad, which is more ' 
properly referred to as a post 
acquisition management 
team, will finish its work at 
Rawlplug in April and will 
then be able to take on 
McKechnie, ass uming t h e bid 
through. However, Wil- 
iams has acknowledged that .! 


uic iwquuiuDa os 
Tonks is “choo-a-block” with 
industrial logic nniiVe the bid 
for his company.His real 
objection however seems to 
be that there is no cash 
alternative to the one-for-two 
share offer although there is 
an opportunity to take some 
convertible preference 
shares. 

Shareholders have to de- 
cide about the Newman 
Tonks bid on February 28. a 
week before Williams an-, 
nounces its profit figures. 
They should take into ac- 
count that Williams is expect- 
ed to have made £6 million 

that £?L5 million is possible 
this year. It is that sort of 
growth that shareholders 
would be throwing away. 

Estate agents 

-'Quoted estate agents are 
stiH few in number, but they 
have become popular of late 
as speculative fever sweeps 
through the stock market. 

Hambros Bank recently 
underlined the attractions of 
estate agencies by bidding for 
Bairs tow Eves. Legal & Gen- 
eral is rumoured to be on the 
prowl for Connells and the 
Trustee Savings Bank and 
Halifax Building Society are 
the market’s favourites to bid! 
for Mann & Co. 

This week’s £6.2 million 
purchase of Bridgets, the. 
stockbroker-belt estate agent, 
by the up and coming finan- 
cial services group Abacoi 
Investments is more proof of 1 
the key position estate agents- 
occupy in the adxlerating 
trend to one-stop financial 
shopping. 

Abaco already owns John 
CharcoL a flourishing mort-- 
gage broker, and Provincial 
Trust, a licensed deposit- 
taker. It has added 30 retail 
outlets winch will, in addition 
to selling houses, be able to 
offer mortgages and bridging 
loans. Next on Abaco’s shop- 
ping list is an insurance 
broker, to offer house and 
contents insurance. 

Abaco is paying 17 times 
last year’s earnings for 
Bridgers which, given the 
potential for adding on ser- 
vices, does not seem too high. 
The basic house selling busi- 
ness on its own is capable of 
good growth. Abaco’s share 
price has gained 1 ftp to 34p. 

The choices for would-be 
purchasers of estate agencies 
must become more fimited 
because of the extreme frag- 
mentation of the industry 
except at the top. Abaco 
reckons Bridgers is about the 
15th largest chain in the 
country. IJqyds Bank's Black 
Horse agencies holds number 
one slot, followed by 
Hambros' Bairstow Eves and 
Mann & Co. 

Banks, budding societies, 
insurance companies and any 
other interested parties had 
better get off their marie if 
they want to snap up a 
sizeable chain.

Takeovers spur share 
prices to new peak 


ICI in Italian link 
to cut PVC output 


The stock market continued 
on its record-breaking run 
with two more takeover devel- 
opments provoking plenty of 
speculative activity again/ 

The FT 30-share index 
closed up 3.9 at 1 2 1 2.5 and the 
FT-SE 100-share index gained 
3.5 points at 147.5. 

Overall, the leaders were 
rather mixed. However. Lucas 
attracted keen demand and 
was said to have broken 
through a major chart point in 
its nseofI7pto545p. 

A gain of 8p to I92p by 
GEC was acc ompa nied by 
vague talk of BTR interest. 
Imperial Group rose another 
6p to 291 p as the company 
refused a meeting with Han- 
son following the previous 
day's bid clearance. 

Thorn EML on the other 
band, slipped 8p to 434p on 
the sale of cable interests. 

Hasfanere shot up 1 Ip to 
620p on rejection of Robeco's 
600p bid. This bid develop- 


Bj Our City Staff 

meat greatly excited the prop- 
erty and building sectors, 
inspiring gains of 2lp to 210 
by Rush and Tompkios. of 27p 
to S03p by Higgs and HilL 
and of I4p to 5I0p by C H 
Beazer. 

McKechnie Bros rose ISpto 
223p on receiving a bid from 
Williams Holdings, 3p off at 
4?5p but Newman Tonks 
dipped 10p to I27p on fears 
that McKee hnie’s offer will 
not now go through. 

Some of those to advance 
on the back of speculative 
demand were Vanx Breweries, 
lOp to 393p. Combined En- 
glish Stores. 13p to I82p. 
Grattan, |2p to 362p. and 
Martin Ford. 7p to 78p. 

Recent favourites GUS A. 
850p. and Mann and Co, 
283p. fell 1 Sp apiece on profit- 
taking. The profits recovery at 
Robert Lowe put 8p on the 
shares at 48p. while recent 
comment on the company's 
new product continued to 


direct buyers to West 
Bromwich Spring, 9p higher at 
42p. 

Westfamd, quoted in its ex- 
rights form, slipped down 
from the opening 83p to 78. 
Johnson Marthey advanced

Norway signals oil output rise 

By David Young, Energy Correspondent 


Norway has added to the 
difficulties of the Organiza- 
tion of Petroleum Exporting 
Countries by sending signals 
to its major customers for 
North Sea oil that it intends to 
increase its output this year. 

Like Britain, Norway has 
consistently refused to co- 
operate with Opec in control- 
ling daily oil output to affect 
the market price. But with 
only 700,00 barrels a day 
production compared to 


Britain's 2.7 million barrels, 
Norway’s move has been re- 
garded by Opec as more of a 
symbolic nature than a real 
threat to world prices. 

Norway has indicated that h 
would be prepared io officially 
discuss with Opec the current 
problems being faced by the 
oil-producing nations. 

In contrast, Britain has 
made h clear to Opec that 
while individual oil ministers 
are welcome to discuss the 


issue informally with Mr Peter 
Walker.rhe Energy Secretary, 
there is no prospect of Britain 
interfering; with the present 
system ofaliowing oil compa- 
nies the right to set whatever 
output level they feel justified. 

Brent crude is now trading 
at S16.40 a barrel, but there is 
very little activity in the spot 
markets as traders await signs 
from Opec as to what it will 
propose at its planned minis- 
terial meeting 


ICI and EniChem, the Ital- 
ian state chemicals company/ 
have agreed to merge their 
lossmaking polyvinyl chloride 
(PVQ and vinyl chloride 
monomer (VCM) operations 
to form a joint venture with 
sales of around £500 million. 

The new company to be 
called the European Vinyls 
Corporation is aimed at cut- 
ting overcapacity. 

under the plan, ICI will 
close its PVC plants at 
Hillhouse, Lancashire, and 
WaHshui, in West Germany, 
to concentrate production at 
more modern plant The 80 
employees at Hillhouse will be 
redeployed or offered early 
retirement 

• GENERAL CONSOLI- 
DATED INVESTMENT 
TRUST: A final dividend of 
7.6p. making H.lp (9.2p) for 
the year to December 31. will 
be paid oui on March 31- With 
figures in £000, gross revenue 
was 3.651 (2,946). Pretax rev- 
enue totalled 3.295 (2.752).

(9.48p) and net asset value was 
323. 7p (290pL 

• OSCA COMMUNICA- 
TIONS: The company is 
acquiring the design con- 
sultancy Sutherland Hawes in a 
deal worth £800,000. 

• UNION CARBIDE: The 
corporation plans to distribute 
its slock dividend on March 3, 
not March 14, as previously 
announced. It intends to 
distribute two additional shares 
of common stock on March 3 
for each share held of record on 
February 16. It will also 
distribute on March 3, for each 
share held of record on 
February 1 5. a tradable right 
pertaining to the previously 
announced special dividend 
from the planned sate of its 
consumer products businesses. 


• JOHNSON & JOHNSON: 
Earnings per share in the fourth 
quarter rose to 70 cents from 
59 cents last time.

turnover 508 (1.803) and profit 
before tax 101 (89 loss). 
Earnings per ordinary share 
were 2.2p (2-3p loss). The 
previous figures are not fully 
comparable with the latest 
results, however. Extraordinary 
items represent profit on the 
sale of a fixed asset less an ex 
gratia payment to a former 
employee and director. The 
board has entered into a 
conditional contract to acquire 
four investment props for 
£1.64m payable in cash on

per cent last year after infla- 
tion. well below the Reagan

THE TIMES FRIDAY FEBRUARY 14 1986 


25 





Argyll’s increased offer for Distillers is now worth 
■more than the proposed Guinness offer. 

But for anyone vet to be persuaded by the sound 
sense behind our new offer ; it’s worth reminding you o f 
the strings attached to the Guinness bid. 

0 

String 1 

Since June 1984 Guinness PLC has spent nearly 
£500 million making no fewer than ten acquisitions. 

Argyll , of course , are no strangers to acquisitions . 
But ten acquisitions in only twenty months is more 
than enough for any management team to digest. 

Guinness’ purchases are a pretty motley collec- 
tion. From newsagents to health-food restaurants. 
Hotels to delicatessens. And, of course, Bell’s. Is 
Guinness really ready to absorb one of Britain’s 
biggest companies? 


: '‘“f ' 1 Vi it. f-j 

\ •- THfc*t'. I c»LrfAPCniG'»(.L* e i.-:ic'rn 

*■ '- ,J * - .'y ... : j a i >■•*' ae- \.sr vjl'. ucr-'. vu.: o.i* 

String 2 

Argyll believe that Guinness have enough on 
their hands with Bell’s alone. In the US, the world’s 
most sophisticated drinks market, Bell’s had less 
than a 1% market share in 1984. 

Guinness itself only managed to sell 1.7 million 
cases of stout in the US in 1984. 

Argyll’s imported beer, Corona Extra, sold 5 
million cases there in 1985. So much for Guinness’ 
international marketing skills. 

String 3 

Guinness’ overseas business is mainly in 
underdeveloped countries such as Nigeria, Ghana, 
Cameroon and Malaysia where it owns breweries 
and sells locally produced stout. 

What possible benefits could this experience 
have for Distillers as marketers of mature distilled 
products in developed markets such as North 
America, Europe and Japan? 

String 4 

Attempts by Guinness to raise the spectre of all- 
powerful overseas competitors are also flawed. They 
rate Suntory as a major threat in the international 
market place yet 98% of Suntory sales are in their 
home market of Japan. Japanese whisky sales 
actually fell by over 20% in 1984. 

Distillers is claiming to be the most profitable 
spirits company in the world. It doesn’t need 
Guinness stout or Bell’s whisky to fend off inter- 
national competition. 

It needs new management with a proven track 
record like Argyll’s. 

String 5 

Much has been made of Distillers’ and 
Guinness’ supposed compatibility. It is certainly 
true they’re both over dependent on products which 
have been around for many years. 

In 1984 21% less Guinness stout was sold in the 
UK than in 1981 - the year the present management 
team assumed responsibility. Guinness’ claim to 
‘unrivalled experience in the international market- 
ing of prestige drinks’ is also doubtful. 

It’s almost unbelievable that Distillers’ should 
turn to Guinness for marketing help. 

The decline at Distillers has been documented. 

They have conceded that new management is 
necessary and have set a price for their company. 

Argyll have now increased their offer. The 
Argyll case is clear. 

Accept the Argyll offer. There are no strings. 

Argyll We can revive Distillers’ spirits . 1

By Rebecca Eliahoo 

Tilney Pike Shane started life in 1980 
as a design practice working from an 
attic. By last year the partners were 
buying a disused laundry in Fulham 
and convening it entirely to their own 
high-tech premises. 

Such upward mobility had been

accompanied by healthy nses in 
turnover, with, for instance, a 40 per 


turnover, with, for instance, a 40 per 
cent increase from May to October 
I9S5 compared with the previous year. 

There seem marginally more pitfalls 
in architecture for youthful inexperi- 
ence. It is not unkown.for example, for 
clients to change their mind complete- 
ly when a project is almost finished or 
for their evasive altitude to invoices to 
send a practice's cash flow into a spin. 

Tilney Pike Shane was especially 
lucky with one of its first clients. 
Cheisea Girl, which had contacted 
partner Marvyn Shane, initially to ask 
him to recommend a larger, more- 
experienced consultancy. 

Says partner Tom Pike:" We per- 
suaded them that we were not too 
small or too young to work for them 
and they gave us three weeks to come 
up with ideas for the redesign of their 
shops. To prove we had fertile 
imaginations, we inundated them with 
ideas and they signed us up as their 
consultants." 

The partners took on any project 
that came along in the beginning, 
including small-scale domestic work 
for friends. Soon they had another 
stroke of luck. Michael Peters & 
Partners asked them to collaborate on

were thus exposed to good clients, 
which, at that stage, we would not 
have got on our own.” 


The partners had to move out of 
their ante as they took on more staff. 
They decided to rent the first floor of a 
former knitwear factory in Shepherds 
Bush. Having spent what they consid- 
ered quite a lot of monev on 
redesigning the premises, they realized 
that the only long-term beneficiary was 
the landlord. 

Mr Pike saysTWe started to look for 
a freehold property with a light 
industrial usage. First, because light 
industrial premises are cheaper than 
office space and second, because they 
have higher ceilings and more natural 
light.” 

Architect Cathy Tilney and interior 
designer Marvyn Shane had first met 
at Pentagram. Architect Tom Pike had 
always been freelance. MMr Shane 
said: "We didn't want to go to a bank 
on our first day and borrow money be- 
cause in architecture you never know 
whether your clients will pay you — es- 
pecially when you're just starting — 
and we didn't want a bank loan 
hanging round our necks. We decided 
to operate on a positive cash flow with 


our money in the bank and we have 
maintained that all the way.” 

Marvyn Shane's wife. Heather, had 
worked on the administrative side of 
other architectural offices and took on 
a financial and managerial role at TPS. 
She prepared weekly chans showing 
how much money was owed and owing 
and how much remained in the bank 
When the panners decided to buy their 
own building, they approached a 
financial adviser. 

Mrs Shane says:“He persuaded us to 
take pan in an accepted scheme which 
had been developed for doctors and 
lawyers in partnerships. It is based on 
a pension plan whereby the panners 
take out pensions which mature on 
retirement and not only pay back the 
loan but supply pensions from 
profits.” 

The partners want to expand and 
have taken on a new partner. Calium 
Lumsden this year, but they arc wary 
of becoming "huge and anonymous”. 
Their clients cover a number of 
different fields — a chain of optician 
shops is one example — as well as work 
for advertising agencies such as Wight 
Collins Rutherford Scott fellow design 
consultancies and financial institu- 
tions.

Hi 



r:l"l I I». II. .. rvlmV.4 Wn.vIllUj., W, -Wf-.flt. IT. ...i I .'■Br.iUvrL 


In some ways, if your office doesn't yet boast a 
digital exchange, you have an ad vantage. 

You're able to bypass newish but now outmoded 
communication system generations - and advance 
from your old system straight to the Plessey ISDX. 

The Plessey ISDX - designed and manufactured in 
Britain - is far more titan a superb telephone system. 

It makes available truly integrated communication of 
voice, text and data, and links the business world to 
ISDN - tlie newly emerging private and public 
integrated services digital networks. 

The ability Plessey has in digital communications 
gives the Plessey ISDX a head start over any other 
system that claims to be competitive -whezheryour 
office needs as few as thirty lines, or thousands. 

The undeniable evidence of Plessey ISDX 


supremacy is that it has evolved from the Plessey £DX, 
Britain's number one large digital PABX 

Connecting you to the future in communications 
is a Plessey habit - in public exchanges, packet 
switching, data networks, fibre optic systems — as well as 
exchanges for the private office. 

In fact, Plessey has the name for being the total 
communications company. 

It's a name worth knowing if you want to leap ahead. 
Plessey Telecommunications & Office Systems Limited, 
Beeston, Nottingham NG9 1 LA.

In 1985, nearly half Hanson Trust’s 
profits came from its US arm - Hanson 
Industries. 

Between 1980 and 1985, Hanson 
Industries; profits increased by an appar- 
ently impressive £111 million. 

But are they really what they seem? 

£96 millio n of that £lHm came from 
profits bought in - through acquisition. 

Afiiither£9m.camefromthefortune 
of dollar/sterling exchange rates. 

Which leaves £6nL, a sad little 6%, 
from organic growth. Then take out 
inflation and we find that, in real terms, 
Hanson Industrie^ organic profits went 


backwards between 1980 and 1985.

reinvestment of dividends and capital gains distributions, a sum .of 510.000 invested in 
the fund at its inception would have become $677,177 as at 3 1st December. 1985. This

. Capital structure and reasons for the Offer for Sale 
• The issued share capital of the Company consists of 40 million Ordinary -W Shares 
earning five votes each and 120 million Shares canying one vote each. Each Ordinary 
- \V Share is convertible at any time into a Share: Shares cannot be convened into 
. Ordinary ‘A* Shares. Application for listing has been made only in respect of the Shares 
‘ and only Shares are being offered for sale. A total of 40 million Shares are being offered 
for sale at a price of 21 5p per Share, payable in fill] on application. All of these Shares 
; are being sold by existing holders: no new capital is being raised by the Company. 

“Following the Offer for Sale, and excluding any Shares for which they may apply, the 
Directors will own 39.894.400 Ordinary * A' Shares and 79.788.800 Shares which together 
represent 87.2 per cent, of the voting rights, John Templeton, a British national resident 
in the Bahamas, will control 60.8 per cenL of the voting rights. 

A listing for the Shares on The Stock Exchange will provide a market in the Shares and, 
the Directors believe, will enhance public awareness of the Templeton Group’s activities. 

Investment principles and policy 

The objective of the Templeton Group is the provision of long-term capital growth for 
its clients which it seeks to achieve through a flexible policy of investing in stocks and 
debt obligations of companies and governments of any nation. 

The Templeton Group employs methods of world-wide stock selection conceived and 
constantly revised by John Templeton and his associates over 45 years of investment 
. counselling service. 


l r Often stocks are selected on the basis of factors which may not be reflected in stock 
■ market valuation for several years. This requires independence of mind and discipline 
--on the part of the portfolio manager. It follows that stocks may be retained over a period 
of years: the weighted average portfolio turnover rate of the Templeton Mutual Funds 
' for their 1985 financial years was approximately 16 per cent. 

•- The search for suitable investments results in the geographical spread of the Templeton 
Group’s portfolio varying considerably from time to time. At 3 1st December; 1985, total 
• invested funds were held as to 65 per cent, in the United States, 9 per cent in Canada, 
12 per cent, in Europe, 7 per cent, in Australia and 4 per cent in the Far East, including 
Japan. This contrasts with the position some ten tears ago when 1 9 percent, was invested 
I Jn the United States. 32 per cent, in Canada and*44 per cent, in Japan. 


[• : History of the Templeton Group 

"The Templeton Group had its origins more than 45 years ago when John Templeton 
-evolved an investment counselling system based on techniques of detailed security 
■ analysis conceived during his university career. 

In 1940, John Templeton became controlling shareholder and President ofan investment 
counselling company. Templeton Dobbrow and Vance Inc. Templeton Growth Fund, 
I which commenced business in 1954. was originally managed by this company. In 1969, 
John Templeton, who by then was resident in the Bahamas, sold his interest in this 
company but retained the investment advisory contract with Templeton Growth Fund. 
John Galbraith, whose career had until then been largely in mutual fund distribution 
and management, became President of the distribution company for Templeton Growth 
Fund in 1974. John Galbraith built up the broker-dealer network which now enables the 
Templeton Mutual Funds to be distributed throughout the United States. In 1977, John 
Galbraith acquired the distribution company from John Templeton. 

During 1978, a second mutual fluid. Templeton World Fund, was formetUn the same 
-vear, the mutual fund distribution activities moved from New Jersey to St Petersburg 
and in 1980 a subsidiary ofSFI registered as a transfer agent with the United States 
Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC) and began to provide transfer agency 
sen-ices to the Templeton Mutual Funds. SFI assumed the distribution and transfer 
agency responsibilities from its subsidiaries in 1984. 

' HCI commenced business m Fort Lauderdale in 1979 under the direction of Thomas 
- Hansberger. Initially it built op international research contacts to comptemem those 
^already established by Jota Tfempieu*i. In addition, tt developed a research capability . 


of its own with a computerised data base and began to manage institutional and private 
accounts. *HG -also became an additional information source for the Ba h a m as-based 
mutual fund advisory business. 

In 1981 . a third mutual fund, Tempteion Global L was launched with put objective of 
investing primarily in smaller companies having a market capitalisation of less than 
$100 million. A subscription Getting of 5 1 50 million, inducting sales charge, was placed 
on the size of the fund which was fully subscribed within approximately three months. 
1982 saw the establishment of Templeton Foreign Fund whose objective is to. invest in 
securities outside the United States. This fund was followed in 1983 by a fifth mutual 
fund, Templeton Global H,. which also invests primarily in smaller companies but each 
having a maximum market capitalisation of $200 million. 

In 1982, John Galbraith formed Securities Fiwd Trust Company, a Texas chartered trust 
company; io serve as trustee or custodian for tax deferred retirement plans which invest 
in shares of the Templeton Mutual Funds. It is intended that this company's role will be 
assumed by Securities Fund Trust Company of Florida rSFTO. 

Securities Fund Annuities. Inc. (“SPA”), an insurance company registered in Eladda, 
was formed in 1984 to offer variable annuity policies to individual retirement account 
holders. The process of preparing this product for registration with the SEC is currently 
takingplace. 

On 3rd January. 1 986. the various companies which had previously been owned by John 
Templeton. John Tempteion Jc, John Galbraith and Thomas Hansberger, and had been 
operated in close association with one another; were combined to form the Templeton 
Group. Certain personnel have been relocated in the Bahamas in order to integrate the 
management, administration and operations of the Templeton Group companies. 


Fond management in the United States 

GENERAL 

Although the companies in the Templeton Group serve investors from many countries, 
currently the principal source of funds is the United States. Savings invested in pension, 
retirement and mutual funds, including trust accounts, in the United States amounted 
to more than $2^00 billion at the end of 1985. There are more than 1.500 investment 
management organisations in the United States and, of these, some 90 offer international 
money management capabilities;- an even smaller number have secured faDy 
discretionary global management appointments. The distinction between international 
investment and global investment is that in the former case, the portfolio manager does 
not invest in securities of issuers within the United States, whereas, in the latter case, 
investments are made anywhere in the world including the United States. 

The mutual fund industry in the United States is highly competitive with more than 
1.500 mutual funds in existence of varying sizes offering a wide range of investment 
policies and objectives. Total mutual fund assets in the United States grew from $134.8 
billion to $483-5 billion in the five years to 31st December; 1 985. 

The growth in mutual fund assets since 1980 has been primarily attributable to the 
increase in popularity of money market funds and bond and fixed income funds. Until 
1 982. Regulation Q of the Federal Reserve Board limited the rate of interest which hapla 
and other savings institutions could offer depositors. Consequently, money market funds 
attracted savings from those investors seeking competitive income returns. A change in 
tbe Regulations in 1982 enabled banks to compete more effectively against money 
market funds for deposits. However, bond and fixed income funds also began to attract 
significant flows of savings by offering attractive yields to investors and have grown 
rapidly since 1982. As at 31st December; 1985. tbe total amount of money invested in 
money market and bond and fixed income funds amounted to $378 billion. 

Despite an initial slower growth rate, equity funds have followed the growth pattern of 
the industry, although they suffered a comparative decline m sales in 1984. Total assets 
invested in equity fluids as a proportion of all mutual fund assets declined from 30.4 per 
cent, to 21.8 per cenL, during a time of rising interest rates, in the five years between 
31st December, 1980 and 3lst December. 1985. However; total assets invested m equity 
funds over this period increased from $41 billion to $105 billion. 

In the United States, mutual funds may be sold either with or without an initial sales 
charge. In the former case, a charge of up to 8J percent, of the offer price is paid by the 
investor and is generally shared between the principal distributor of the fund and the 
broker-dealer through whom tbe sale was effected. This method is used for the Templeton 
Mutual Funds. In the latter case, no charge is payable at the time of investment but, in 
some instances, acharge is imposed at the timeofredemptionoran annual charge is made 
against tbe fund's assets. There are indications that this latter method of distribution is 
becoming more popular. In addition, certain mutual fund distributors are expanding the 
use of bank networks to sell shares of their funds. 


RETIREMENT, ACCOUNTS 

One of the reasons for the increase in funds under management in the United States has 
been the development of the individual retirement account (“Retirement Account"). 
With effect from January. 1982, any person with earned income in the United States 
under the age of 70 may set up a Retirement Account. This type of plan enables such 
persons to deduct from their taxable income payments made to their own retirement 
pension schemes. Tbe maximum available annual deduction is currently $2,000. Income 
earned on funds contributed to a Retirement Account accumulates tax free until 
withdrawn. 

Currently, most Retirement Account money is invested, with banks and savings and 
loan institutions; only about 15 per cenL is invested in mutual funds; representing 
approximately 6 per cent of total amounts invested in mutual funds but 20 per cent by 
number of all mutual fund accounts. Consequently, there is considerable scope for growth 
in this market and the Investment Company Institute, a trade association of mutual 
funds and associated investment managers, has estimated that total sums invested in 
Retirement Accounts will double to over $400 biBion by 1989. 


■BUSINESS- 


Record 

The Templeton Group derives its income principally from investment management 
fees, mutual fund sales charges and shareholder servicing and administration fees. The 
following table shows funds under management as at 3 1 si December in each of the years 
1980 to 1984 and at 30th September; 1985, being the date to which tbe latest audited 
accounts have been prepared. The table also shows a breakdown of tbe Templeton 
Group's total income and profits from tbe two principal activities during the periods 
indicated. 

In recent years, the companies now comprising the Tempteion Group have bad the 
benefit of investment income and gains arising from surplus funds held on deposit or in 
investments. Dividends have been declared for the year ended 31st December, 1985 
which have reduced the net assets of the Templeton Group to approximately S5 million 
as at that date. For the purposes of comparison, the table exdudes investment income 
and gains, other than those attributable to SFft and Securities Fund Trust Company, 
where regulations require the maintenance of a minimum level of net assets.

INVESTMENT ADUCE AND FEES 

Two companies in the Templeton Group provide investment advisory services to the 
Templeton Mutual Funds. The Company advises the United States incorporated funds, 
namely Templeton World Fund, Templeton Global I, Tempteion Global II and 
Templeton Foreign Fund. A subsidiary Templeton Investment Counsel Umited- 
CTTCL'\advise$TernpleiOD Growth Fund which is incorporated in Canada. Subsequent 
to the incorporation of Templeton Growth Fund, legislative changes in Canada and the 
U mied States rendered it more advantageous to United Stales investors for the remaining 

mutual funds to be incorporated in the United Slates. 

Each adviser famishes the funds with investment research, advice and supervision arid 

an in vestment programme which complies with anyrestrictions applicable to iberetevant

□ 0.075 per cent of the excess over $ 1.200 million. 

For the year ended 31st December. 1985. fees received for these services amounted to 
approximately $3 million. 

SFT also acts as transfer agent and shareholder servicing agent maintaining shareholder 
^count records for the United States mutual funds. An independent Canadian companv 
If the ff ansferan <i shareholder servicing agent for Templeton Growth 
Fund in Canada but sub-contracts the work to SFI for all other countries except certain 
parts of Europe. For providing these services. SFI currently charges an annual fee of 
J8.I3. adjusted annually for the cost of living, for each of the approximately 400.000 
shareholder accounts. 

It is proposed that SFTC will assume the functions of Securities Fund Trust Company 
and act as custodian or trustee with respect to Retirement Accounts and retirement 
plans offered to employees of corporations, certain tax-exempt organizations and 
self-employed individuals. There art approximately 140,000 Retirement Accounts and 
other tax deferred retirement accounts held by Templeton Mutual Fund shareholders. 
Ad annual, charge is made of $10 per account. 

For the year ended 31st December; 1985, income received for these services amounted 
to approximately $4.4 million. 

Funds in a Retirement Account may be distributed to holders by means of an annuity. 
For this purpose. SFI has formed SFA, a Florida insurance company. It is envisaged that 
SEA will commence offering such annuities during 1 986. 

SFI is subject to periodic examination by the SEC and the NASD. Under the SEC"s rules, 
the ratio of SFI’s total indebtedness to its net capital as defined by those rules may not 
exceed 15 to-l. Each of SFFs underwriting contracts with the Templeton Mutual Funds 
may continue in effect only so long as it is annually reviewed and approved by the board 
of director's of the fund and by the vote ofa majority of 1 he fund's directors who are not 
parties to the contract nor affiliates of any member of the Templeton Group. In addition, 
each such contract may be terminated in the same manner as the Templeton Group's 
investment advisory contracts with the Templeton Mutual Funds. In ..the event of 
termination by reason ofachange of control or management of SFI, the board ofdirectors 
of each of the Templeton Mutual Funds, including a majority of those directors who are 
not parties to (he contract nor affiliates of any member of the Templeton Group, would 
be expected to meet promptly to consider the re-appointment of SFI on the same terms 
and conditions. 

Other assets under management 

Of the remaining funds managed by the Templeton Group, the majority are managed by 
TICI in Fort Lauderdale. As at 3lst December; 1985, TICI had $1,642 million under 
management in 54 accounts. TICI has fiiO discretion over the investment of these funds. 
Incomeaiidcapital^insariringfrom investments held on behalf of clients are reinvested 
or digribuiedfn , agrtxj^tgnqe with diems’ instructions. A report is made to each diem at’ 
least once a quarto: " 

TICI generally charges annual investment management fees at the rate of 0.75 per cent 
on the firstS 1 0 million of fimds under management, 0.5 per cent, on the next $20 million 
and 0.35 per cent, on any additional funds- Contractscan typically be terminated without 
compensation on 30 days’ notice at the did of any quarter by either party. 

The other -feuds are. managed by: the Company and two of its subsidiaries, John 
Tempferon CounseDoncTnc JTCT) and TICL, operating from the Bahamas. As at 
31st December, 1985, these funds totalled $748 million. This figure includes funds in 
relation to which the Templeton Group acts as sub-adviser which, at the same date, 
amounted to S327 million. The basis of a subadvisory contract is that the- sub-adviser 
recommends, and in some instances selects, investments for inclusion in a portfolio 
managed by the principal adviser: One of the funds sub-advised is Templeton Canadian 
Fund whose principal adviser is Templeton Management Limited, a Canadian company 
beneficially owned as to 10 per cent of its shares by John Templeton Jr, 1 5 per cent, of 
its shares by other of John Templeton's children and the balance by Canadian residents. 
Templeton Management Limited also acts as exclusive dealer for sates of shares of 
Templeton Growth Fund in Canada. 

The Bahamas-based companies generally charge investment management fees varying 
between 0.5 per cent and 0J5 per cent, per annum of the assets under management 
Cunently most of the assets under management are charged at the lows* of these two 
rates. 

All the above contracts wiD terminate in the event ofa change in control of the investment 
adviser or sub-adviser. Substantially all of these contracts may continue provided the 
client consents 10 such change in control. 

TICI has recently formed Templeton Investment Management Limited (“TIML") j n the 
UX for the purpose of providing investment management services to UX and other 
non-U-S. clients and research to other Templeton Group members. TICI owns 75 per 
cent, of the ordinary share capital of TIML. the remainder being owned by Mr. R. G. R 
Cajss, th e managing director of that company and members of his family 

Research 

R esear ch data is gathered by the Templeton Group from world-wide sources and is 
analysed by the Templeton Group's, staff in the Bahamas, Fort Lauderdale and London. 
Securities which appear under-valued are identified and further research is applied to 
ascertain the potential for revaluation. This results in the preparation of proprietary data 
bases which currently comprise approximately 500 securities. Following the application 
of the Templeton Group's analytical techniques and investment criteria, lists of stocks 
to be bought and sold are prepared in the Bahamas. John Templeton reviews changes to 
the buy and sell fists. 

The research is co-ordinated by a team of chartered financial analysts, each of whom has 
been assigned specific geographical and company research responsibilities. There are 
cmrcotiysome 50 primary sources of research material actively used by the staff Most 
are research departments of brokers or investment banking bouses located throughout 
the world. In addition, the Templeton Group subscribes to a range of securities research 
sources including on-line data banksand published material. . . . - . 

An investment' idea might arise from the Templeton Group's own. analysis or from a 
recommendation from an outside source. Incnasmgfc town mwtraent ideas are 
arising out of computer screening techniques. A screening is a ranking or selecuou of

r PROFITS, DIVIDENDS AND PROSPECTS 


Profits estimate 

The Directors estimate that the profits after tax of the companies which now comprise 
the Templeton. Group, for the year ended 31st December, 1985. will amount 10 $23.9 
million. This estimate excludes investment income and gains (other than those 
attributable to SKA and Securities Fund Trust Company) and exceptional items, less tax 
thereon estimated at $5.8 million; it is based upon the audited results of these companies 
to 30ih September. 1985 and the management accounts to 31st December. 19S5. 

Letters from Robson Rhodes and Cazenove & Co., issued in connection with this 
estimate, are set out in paragraph 5 of "General Information" below; 

Dividends 

The Company’s financial year is the calendar year. Dividends have been declared and 
paid in respect of the year ended 3 1 si December. 1 985 by the companies now comprising 
the Templeton Group, leaving the net assets of the Templeton Group at approximately 
$5 million at that dat& * 

It is the intention of the Directors to pay dividends for the 1986 financial > ear amounting 
to not less than 40 per cent of profits after tax. On this basis, dividends would have 
totalled 5.97 cents per share for the 1985 financial year based upon profits after tax of 
$23.9 million for that year, as shown in “Profits estimate" above, and would have left 
retained profits for future investment of514.3 million. 

It is the. Directors’ current intention to pay an interim dividend in October of each year 
and a final dividend in the following May. The first dividend payment will be in October. 
1986 which will be the interim dividend for the year to 31st December. 1986. All 
' dividends will be paid in U.5. dollars and. under current applicable laws, w ill be declared 
and paid without deduction of lax. Dividends paid to U.K. resident shareholders through 
a U.K. paying agent or collected through a U.K. lank will be paid after deduction of 
U.K. basic rate income tax by the U.K. paying agent or bank. 

Prospects 

The Directors have confidence in the long-term growth prospects of the Templeton 
Group and believe that the following factors are among those likely 10 influence the 
future expansion of the business of the Templeton Group: 

□ The growth in assets of the mutual funds managed is likely 10 be assisted 
by the reinvestment ofannual dividends and other distributions in additional 
shares. Currently over 90 per cent, of the approximately 400.000 shareholder 
accounts in the funds are reinvested in this wav: 

□ New investment m the Templeton Mutual Funds has historically 
exceeded redemptions by a factor of approximately two times and curremiy 
sales ofTempIeton Mutual Funds are at record levels. 

□ The Templeton Group is continually seeking to expand the range of 
services it can offer to its customers and also to acquire, at favourable prices. 

. other investment management organisations. 

.U The Qumber of individuals investing in Retirement Accounts managed 
by the Templeton Group is increasing each month. Currently, there are more 
than 100,000 Retirement Accounts invested in Templeton Mutual Funds. 

An individual may invest up to a maximum of 52000 per annum in a 
Retirement AccounL 

□ The Templeton Group intends to make a significant marketing effort to 
extend its client base to other pans of the world. 

The future prospects of the Templeton Group will be influenced by the rate of growth in 
fends under management and by the strength of markets around the world generally. 
There are. however, certain additional factors which are likely to work in the Templeton 
Group's favour in the future, the most important of which is the growth in total United 
Stales pension fend assets and in particular, the amount of those assets which are 
■ Seely to be invested outside the iJnxied Slates. The location of the headquarters of the 
Templeton Group outside the United States, together with its breadth of experience of 
investing in markets on a world-wide basis, places the Templeton Group in a strong 
position toJtenefit from these pends, ‘j; . .

THE TIMES FRIDAY FEBRUARY 14 1986 


CRICKET 




Holding’s pace poses 
a familiar problem 




From John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent, Kingston, Jamaica 


England got off to a shaky 
start against Jamaica here 
yesterday, losing the wickets 
of Robinson and Gower in the 
fir$t hour while scoring 44. 
The bowling of Holding and 
Walsh was fast and impres- 
sive, without being excessive- 
ly short. 

I The ground, transformed by 
the new George Headley 
stand, looked splendid. They 
have done here what they 
promised and made a fine 
stadium of it, albeit at the 
expense of its original charac- 
ter. It is rather like arriving at 
Lord’s and finding Edgbaston. 


The pitch, too. has changed. 
Rather than looking like a slab 
of marble it has a motley 
appearance — mostly bare but 
with die odd green patch. 
England will hope that the 
Test match strip is not mostly 
green with the odd bare patch. 
On yesterday's evidence it is 
of a good pace for batting. 


Robinson was out in the 
eighth over, caught in the gully 
as be bad looked as though he 
might be when the taster 
bowlers pitched short to him 
in Antigua. Anything.well up 
he played comfortably; any- 


thing under-pitched unsettled 
him. Holding, seeing the pos- 
sibilities of this, positioned 
two gullies, the finer of whom 
held a Ming catch as Robin- 
son sparred. 

In the same over, to his 
second ball, Gower survived 
the closest of calls for leg- 
before. Not that h availed 
him. In Holding's next over 
the captain was wet! caught at 
first dtp off a defensive edge. 
The one confident, attacking 
stroke of the first 
threequarten of an hour was a 
hook for four by Gooch off 
Holding. 


Slack seals welcome victory 


From Simon Wilde, Colombo 


' Wflf Slack and Chris Smith triumph. He has worked hard 
yesterday gave the first dem- at his cricket here, seeming to 


onstiation to the Sri 1 -an Iran have overcome an initial diffi- 
public of the batting potential culty against the spinners, and 
of the En eland B side. Slack, he had never before made a 


of the England B side. Slack, 
122 not out, and Smith. 60 not 


out, shared an unbroken part- day match. 


hundred in a competitive one- 


oership of 146 in 20 overs to Slack must, though, be held 
take England to a seven- responsible for the running 
wicket win over Sri Tanka at out of Nicholas, who went for 


the Nondescript CC ground in a quick single on his own call 
the fi nal one-day match of the only to be sent back by his 


senes. 

England’s target had been 


jartner. The score was then 61 
’or three in the 23rd over and 


206, a higher total then either nothing seemed more likely 
side had achieved in any of the than another tame E n glis h 


five matches, but they reached 
ft with 10 balls to spare. 
Despite this defeat, Sri Lanka 
took the series 3-2. 

Slack’s century, only the 
second for England on the 
tour after Smith's 1 16 in the 
second game, was a personal 


batting display. But Slack was 
to remain there unbeaten, 
receiving 135 bails and hitting 
seven fours mid four axes, 
three off the medium pace 
bowling of Samarasekera. 

Smith also played an aggres- 
sive role. He raced 60 balls and 


Australia seek revenge

strode four fours, two of them 
off successive deliveries to 
finish the match. 

Sri Lanka, who were put in, 
were indebted to three bats- 
men for the majority of their 
runs. Samarasekera and two 
left handers, TiDekeratne and 
Ranasinghe, were full of flu- 
ent straight strokes. 

Samarasekera. who came to 
En gland in 1983 for the Pru- 
dential World Cup, scored 68 
off 70 balls with three sixes 
and six fours. His innings 
ended when a powerful cut 
was met at square leg by the 
diving bulk of Lawrence, the 
substitute fieldsman. 

With Sri Lanka 49 for four 
in the twentieth over, England 
were in command, but in 
order to increase their run- 
making chances they had in- 
cluded Randall at the expense 
of Pringle. Nicholas thus rook 
'it upon himself to bowl nine 
overs, some of them during 
the final hectic stages of the

The study will examine 
whether physical conditioning

there is a way for doctors to

injury. 

“We want to look at the 
question ’Is there a point 
where these ltids are at an 
excess risk?* We’d like to 
develop a test that is sensitive 
to the early stages of brain 
abnormality. 

“If abnormalities or exces- 
sive risks are found we want to 
know if they are more common 
in boxers compared to other 
athletes and to identify early 
warning signs of permanent 
injury.” 

Participants in the study : 
will be selected from boxing 
clubs in five sectors of the

assistant professor at Johns

Health, said. 

Boxers will be wired to 
electronic sensors capable of 
detecting abnormal brain- 
waves. If doctors determine 
that there is the beginning of a 
head injury more tests util be 
conducted. Dr Stewart said. 

He said he would not enter 
the public debate on whether 
boxing should be banned as 
barbaric and cruel, but Dr

Ragby has become a mixture 
of mayhem and marksmanship. 
A blend of Big Daddy and

form a heap, tbe whistle goes, 
and Dead-eye Dkk tests his

Some of as are getting a little

these days. Among this percipi-

wared bis fist a total of three 
tunes. “It was great to sane 
it,” he said. "Bet it would have 
bees even better if it had 
settled a match that was tied at 
fire tries each.” 

Rugby men tend to go os the 
defensive if you sanest that 
rugby is about try-sconug. I get 
hefty letters from them when- 
ever X s oggea fr such a heresy. So 
it was nice to bear Andrew say: 
“The idea of rugby s to score

championship games played so

an administrative capacity has 
burnt as modi midnight nil 
over, the intricacies of the laws 
of rugby as has Hennas Evans 
in his attempt to make easier 
not only their understanding 
but also their reading. 

For a dozen years he was one 
of Wales's representatives on 
the International Board and 
president of tiie Welrii Rugby 
Union in 1982/3. After all, he 
had the responsibility a few 
years ago of being involved in 
the rewriting of those laws. To 
his disappointment, after weeks 
and mouths of work, he found 
that foe whole task had been 
shelved. 

With such a wrangle over 
tbe ubiquitous penalty, some 
other chickens may be coming 
home to roost. In 1976 he had 
also started compiling statistics 
relating to the incidence and 
frequency of penalty lodes .in 
the g a m e. 

“It was becoming increas- 
ingly apparent,” be says, “that 


for kicks (with 10L5 for pen- 
alties). However, in the 1980s 
it reads as follows: 

'80-81 27.2 10.0 17.2 (12.3) 
•81-82 32.0 10.4 21.6 (16.5) 
’82-83 . 325 10L4 22.1 (16.1) 
•8344 333 10.8 22.5 (16.2) 

“From all this,” Evans says, 
“it can be seen thdt tbe lock is 
far too influential and we need 
to restore once again the 
primacy of the try. So many 
penalties are given for technical 
infringement, arising from 
Jineouts and scrummage which 
are meant to restart the game. 
THs can quote often be seen 
also to depend on tire whims of 
the referee. 

“It is quite dear that the 
number of tedutical infringe- 
ments for which a penalty is 
given needs to be reduced. I 
believe that the free lack 
should be more widely used. 
By kicking a team bade 30 or 


40 yards, as is often the case, 
and removing the i«>m from a

games were being won by 'position of attack, to one of 
scoring through the prevalence .defence, in many instances, is a 


touchdown occmred, as in 
American football, in feci. ■ 
Andrew said; “Wingers score 
great tries, sweeping from one 
side of tbe field to the other, 
bat often they wifl touch down 
in the corner. And you know 
that 50 per cent of toodUine 
kicks are always going to fefl. 
To re war d any try wife a 
virtually certain six points 


possible. That pat pre ss ur e on

through any other positive 
aspect. I doubt whether there is 


“Selfdoubt can creep in so 
easfiy. In a cap game last 
season, I mmsvd able out of 10

Yoo keep timUring how you

though you know that, yon

would be fair. And it woald not forgetting it. So now I compose 
remove the sltiDs of long and uyidf carefully for every kick; 


angled place-kicking from the 
game — tbe locking of penalties 
has all that*” 

The practice of place-kicking 
has always struck me as 
something pleasingly aaonm- 
tons in rugby. The game is a 
fast, hot-blooded, toprovisu- 
tjeual moving-ball game. Bat 
every now and then it stops, 
and one man mast at once

I visualize the ball safliug over

It is reassuring to know that 
Andrew, tbe master of- the 
deadly art of place-idckisg, 
loves above aD else in rugby the 
sumptuous, sweeping moves 
that end with tbe triumphant, 

coruer-dag-trinraring dbe. Bat 
it is also reassuring to know,

aspect I doubt whether there is 
any other sport, which allows 
points to accrue in so influen- 
tial but so negative, a fashion. 
The. game is going away from 
tbe primary philosophy of 
getting possession and the 
scoring of tries.” • 

In the esrty days of rugby 
there were no -penalty kicks as 
such; tbe rules of the game 
were very simple, so infringe- 
ments were few and punish- 
ment limited to scrummage 
and free kicks — foe . latter 
having finle bearing as such on 
the match result. Additional 
laws evolved with, con- 


ban good, enough pu irishmen L“ 

Live But be also believes that, for 
e is tbe sake of uniformity and 
3ws simplicity, all kicks should be

on. subscribe, however, to the view 
om foal all conversions should be 
of taken from in front of the

- something away from foe 
gby character of foe game and,

That Birkenhead's principal

they c onceded in the last seven

In linking England with 
Denmark. Belgium, the Neth-

Portugal, the committee have 
built a diplomatic bridge of 
peace from the shores of the 
North Sea deep into Western 
Europe. England's notoriously

either be contained wi thin the

Dixon: hopes to be fit for England's match in Tel Aviv 


John Still, who has been 
appointed manager of 
Leytonstone-nford for the sec- 
ond time, is having to rebuild 
the VauxJhall-Opel League 
dub's team after the departure 
of all but four of their players. 
Only Downer, Kane. Pbeio and 
Simmonds have stayed at the 
dub after the dismissal last 
week of Trevor Harvey, who 
had been manager since last 
summer. 

Leytonstone-Ilford were ide-

if last season I decided to go back because 
the atmosphere has changed a 
lot since I left and the dub are 
now very keen to pro gr e s s. We

League." SliD has taken with 
him his Dartfotd management

stages of the season in front of 
gates of less than 100, but in re- 
cent weeks they had shown 
some consistency and had 
moved out of the first division 
relegation zone. 

Harvey said yesterday: “I 
believe we were just turning the 
comer and I fed I’ve been 
treated terribly. I would never 
want to go to a dub that had 
anyone from Leytoostone- 
Dfortrs committee anywhere 
near it." 

Still's appointment came im- 
mediately after Harvey's dis- 
missal. Still bad become 
available after his resignation 
from Dartford last month. He 
returns to a dub where he had 
great success in his first job as 
a manager. A former player 
with Both the Leytonstone and 
Ilford dubs, be became the first 
manager after their amal- 
gamation in 1979.

ager be won the premier and 
first division championships, 
the London Senior Cup (twice), 
the league cup (twice) and the 


county cup (twice). He left 
three years ago, unhappy with 
the dub's lack of ambition, and 
joined Dartford, whom he took 
into the Gola T^agna. where 
they finished third last season. 
He left Dartford after being 
told to cut their waj£ bill by 45 
per cent and to make every 
player available for transfer.

about Leytonstone-Hfonfs of-

Their player-manager, Kenny

have a chance of playing. 

Mark Seagraves made his 
debut for the first team against 
Queen's Park Rangers In the 
Milk Cnp semMiiial first leg

Leytonstone-Ilford have had 
severe financial problems in 
recent years, but they have 
been eased by the sale of the 
ground. Next season the dub 
will share Walthamstow 
Avenue's ground:'. 

Money is available to bring 
in new players and Still has 
been bdsy in the transfer 
market. Mallett, a goalkeeper, 
has been bought from Dartford 
fix- £2,000 and Tony Dudley, 
the assistant manager's son, has 
come from Waiting Street on a 
free transfer. Still hopes to 
complete the stoning of three 
more of his former players, 
Dingwall, Pamphlet! and 
Robinson, by the weekend. 

Harvey has quickly found a 
new post, having taken over as 
manager of Woodford Town 
(Southern League southern di- 
vision). Lyndon Lynch and 
Dave Dickens, his coach and 
physiotherapist respectively at 
Leyton ston e-Ilford, and four 
players, Bradford, Staunton, 
Charles and Levy, have all 
rejoined him. 


Dalglish does not consider 
that be took a gamble to 
playing Seagraves. “It was a 
big occasion lor him to come in, 
bat he has been (ranting with 
the lint team for a few weeks 
and 1 didn't have any dashes 
about Ms ch ara cter ." he said. 

Looking ahead to the Mflk 
Cnp retea against Rangers, 
Dalglish said yesterday: “The 
potatunce last night was, 
better than the result. The lads 
were not happy bang, bat we 
created the sort of chances well

Dalghsh blamed Rangers*

failure to score, Ini con ceded: 
“Taking erey thing Into mini Id 
eration the performance was as 
good as we have had at Lotas 
Road." 

Rangers* manager, Jim 
Smith, acknowledged: “Going 
to Liverpool with only a single 
goal lead is a difficult task, bat 
we went to Chelsea in the 
quarter final with no advantage 
at all and won." 


Kerry Dixon, the Chelsea 
and England forward, has been 
given the all-clear to resume 
his World Cup campaign. The 
squad for the friendly mter- 
nationaJ in Israel on February 
26 will be named on Monday 
and although Dixon has not 
locked a ball since being 
carried off four games ago, 
John Hollins, the Chelsea 
manager, said: "He'll be okay 
for England." 

Dixon tore a stomach muscle 
in Chelsea's FA Cup defeat by 
Liverpool but is anxious to 
play m the World Clip warm- 
up match in Tel Aviv. Hollins 
said' "He’ll be there. He is 
recovering very well and has 
started running. The next step' 
is to get him sprinting. Then

However, although several of 
Chelsea's other injured players 
are also on the mend, Hollins 
is still determined to buy 
reinforcements after seeing his 
team knocked out of both cups 
and take only one point from 
two home League games. "A 
stoning is imminent," said 
Hollins, but he may not start 
doing business until next week 
because Chelsea do not have a 


League match this weekend. 

Instead they win play a 
friendly at Glasgow Rangers 
today and will use the game to 
have a look at two youngsters,

Atkinson’s 

Anfield 

comments 

criticized 

Ted Croker, the secretary of 
the Football Association, has 
accused the Manchester United 
manager, Ron Atkinson, of 
sensationalizing last Saturday's 
violence at Anfield. Atkinson 
said Liverpool's ground had 
become a beil-hoie for visiting 
teams after his players had 
been showered with a poten- 
tially disabling spray when they 
arrived at Anfield. He said a 
player could get killed there. 

A brick, thrown by a 
hooligan, had struck a window 
of United's coach, next to 
where the forward Mark 
Hughes was sitting, and during 
the match United's bench had 
been continually spat at 
But Croker said yesterday: 
"Ron Atkinson got himself 
involved in some vety emotive 
statements. They made impres- 
sive headlines but they were 
totally without foundation." 
Croker. speaking on TV-AM. 
said the Anfield incidents were 
“exaggerated out of all 
proportion". “There was one 
person with one can. but 
unfortunately responsible peo- 
ple from within the clubs got 
involved," he said. “That 
disturbs me more than the 
incident itself." 

Croker said that Govern- 
ment. police and football dub 
policies were beating the hooli- 
gan problem. He said: “The 
vast majority deplore this. I 
don't want people to think I 
have my head in the sand; 1 
haven't. We know there are 
problems but they exist in all 
aspects of life today."

Scots nearer solution 


The nine "rebel" dubs who 
have threatened to form a 
breakaway league next season 
appear to have reached a 
compromise with the Scottish 
on the main stumbling 
of promotion and rctega- 

ti0n * The new deal is also likely 
to satisfy the 28 first and 
second division dubs. 

At the end of this season two 
first division dubs would be 


promoted to make a premier 
division of 12 teams. The 
following season two dubs 
would be relegated and one 
promoted, which would result 
m a league of 1 1 dubs for one 
year. In 1987-88 season two 
dubs would be relegated and 
one promoted, restoring the 
premier division to its anginal 
form of 10 dubs. After that, the 
system would operate on a one- 
up, one-down basis. 


expect any 

our fans to go over for the 
game and will not be selling 
tickets." The Italian club still 
owe United £250,000 from the 
£1 million transfer of Wilkins. 
Edwards added: "AC Milan 
have said they will pay ns that 
overdue money by March 31 at 
the latest.” 

John Deacon, the chairman 
of Portsmouth, is sending the 
dub's solidtor to Milan to sort 
out the financial dispute over 
Mark Hate ley. AC- Milan still 
owe £450,000 for the England 
forward, who joined the Italian 
dub for just under £1 million 
in 1984. 

Milan, who reportedly have 
debts of £15 million, are 
several weeks behind with a 
£150.000 instalment on the 
money still owed for Halriey, 
but Deacon is hope fill of 
sorting out the situation follow- 
ing the news that Milan have 
been taken over. 

Deacon dismissed reports 
that he would be demanding all 
the money back or insisting 
that Hateley be returned to 
Portsmouth. He said: "We bad 
a telephone call from the 
secretary of AC Milan confirm- 
ing that a new owner bad taken 
over. Following that news, we 
have made arrangements for 
our solidtor to fly out there to 
meet the new owner and try to 
sort out the matter." 


lie at the 
behaviour. 

The reactions of Manches- 
ter United have been almost: 
more excessive and deplorable 
than the single act of lunacy by 
someone with a spray cannis- 
ter. The FA would like to 
censure Atkinson but are 
aware that in the question of 
newspaper stories they are 
chasing their own tail within 
the hurricane of a circulation 
war. 

It is unfortunate, however, 
that the FA continue to tread 
softly on straightforward dis- 
cipline. Bryan Robson should 
have been fined, if not sus- 
pended, for mocking the refer- 
ee when sent off at 
Sander land, and Atkinson 
should have been warned, yet 
a gain, for brin ging the gam? 
into disrepute for dainung, in 
a previous article, that Robson 
was innocent. It is nonsense, 
given the dre ams la nces of a 
national crisis of behaviour, to 
give the excuse of Robson 
being under pressure. 

Making our football stadia 
safe from inferno with some 
additional certificates on fire 
regulations, as the PoppleweU 
Report has done, is a simple 
matter. It is less easy to make 
stadia safe from the inferno of 
human malevolence. 

Did the football authorities 
sincerely believe, a mere eight 
months after Brussels, that 
our national disease was some- 
how miraculously cured, that 
Europe should rush to wel- 
come back our dubs? The 
surprise, frankly, about the 
attack on Manchester 
United's players at Anfield is 
that it had not happened, 
somewhere, earlier in the sea- 
son. We have hardly begun, 
socially, to come to terms with 
the fundamental causes of the 
Heysel disaster, whatever the 
encouraging improvement 
there has been at many 
grounds. 

What should concern os is 
that today we shall know, 
when the European Champi- 
onship draw is made, which 
foreign rides are to be inflicted 
with the visit of English 
marauders masquerading as 
football fans, an occurrence 
which the Popple well Report 
had no brief to consider and 
with which the Home Office 
and Foreign Office seem reluc- 
tant properly to come to grips. 

There are some in football 
already trying to pretend the 
Heysel shame did not really 
happen. Our dubs, if permit- 
ted, could not get back into 
European competition fast 
enough. There are moments 
when they seem more con- 
cerned in counting the money 
than the dead. 

Charlton is the 
better choice 

A noisy argument developed 
between Jack Chariton and 
the Irish press at his formal 
introduction following his ap- 
pointment as Repablic team 
manager. 



He took exception; justifi- 
ably. to questions directed at 
his chairman about alleged 
improper behaviour over the 
offer to Bob Paisley and the 
subsequent voting. When emo- 
tions cook 1 think the Press 
and public will be glad to have 
Charlton and not Paisley. 

With res pea to Uncle Bob, l 
do not think his nature, and 
age, would have been right for 
the international job. If any- 
one is going to get the Republic 
to fulfil their potential, 
Charlton is the man. 

Threat to football 
and Samaranch 

Trouble is brewing, I fear, 
for Juan Antonio Samaranch, 
president of the International 
Olympic Committee, with the 
executive board's approval 
yesterday of the new eligibility 
code to be put before the 
session in October. It could 
cost Samaranch the election 
should be decide to go for a 
third term of office in 1989. 

The new definition will ac- 
cept any professional, provid- 
ed he/she is individually 
approved by the respective 
international federation. The 
International Tenuis Federa- 
tion believe it will in fact 
strengthen their bold on play- 
ers, obliging them to conform 
if they wish to take part in the 
Olympics — for which, of 
course, there is no payment — 
though tbe prospect of typical 
tennis behaviour being trans- 
ferred to the Olympic Games 
would make Coubertin turn in 
his grave. 

FIFA, however, are unlikely 
to come to heeL While Prim© 
Nelrfolo is trying to make the 
world championships of ath- 
letics bigger than the Olym- 
;pics, the World Cup in football 
jis vastly more important than 
the Olympic football tourna- 
ment. 

Joao Havelange, FIFA's 
ipresidenL has tried to main- 
tain an artificial suppression 
of a professional Olympic 
tournament by imposing an 
age limit or a ban on previous ■ 
World Cup participants. He 
■does not want a rival to the 
World Cup. 

_ Yet if FIFA refuse to fall in 
line with the eligibility ruling . 
and to accept all professionals, 
the IOC will threaten the 
removal of football from the 
Olympic programme. This 
would bring Havelange and 
Samaranch, the two most pow- 
erful men in sport, into direct 
confrontation, with all the 
Latin American IOC votes 
riding on the issue.

The top 12 nations of foe 
world have set their sights on 
foe women's World Cup in 
July in Amsterdam but there is 
also a match at Wembley 
Stadium, the Mecca of all 
international teams. Even 
though it is a grass pitch, a 
.surface now out of date, foe 
atmosphere is unique and 
Canada are England's oppo- 
nents on March 15. 

Canada flew in and out of 
Heathrow this week en route 
for Dublin at tbe start of a six- 
week tour which ends in tbe 
USSR. To prepare for foe 
match at Wembley they are 
playing five matches in Ireland, 
four of them on grass. This has 
posed a problem for the Irish, 
■who normally play on fine 
artificial pitches. 

Guinness Breweries have 
come to their aid and have 
brought io a golf green-keeper 
to get their grass pitches in 
Leinster Ulster and Munster 
up to firsi-dass condition for 
the matches next Wednesday, 
Thursday and Friday.

{ England’s outstanding footballer recovers from his most traumatic period 

Trial by ordeal for England’s captain 


These are interesting times for 
Bryan Robson, if only in the sense of 
the Chinese proverb which wishes 
that one's enemies should live in 
interesting times. A frustrating 12 
months, beginning with a shoulder 
injury freakishly sustained, have 
culminated in a depressing last 
fortnight. 

After a further four-month absence 
with leg injuries, his comeback game 
at Sunderland was cut short when he 
was sent off for the first time in his ca- 
reer. More bad news followed a week 
later at West Ham, where, after an 
auspicious start, his goal having given 
Manchester United the lead, things 
again turned sour. He suffered anoth- 
er injury, turning over his ankle, and 
West Ham won to prevent United' 
returning to the top of the table, a 
position they had lost for the first 
time this season the previous day. 

At 29, for the first time in his 
footballing life the England captain is 
suddenly seeing the dark side of the 
game. England's most expensive foot- 
baller, long acclaimed as the country’s _ 
only outndd player of undoubted 
world class, a player of thrilling 
physical commitment on the field, 
and every inch the model schoolboy 
hero off it, he has not previously been 
a target for criticism. 

His run of injuries, which began 
when he crashed into a metal- 
container behind the goal while in 
typical fearless pursuit of a high cross, 
and in particular the slowness of his 
recovery from his leg injury which 
was treated in an Amsterdam riinic, 
has prompted wounding speculation 
about the prospects for his long-term 
fitness. Some critics had even ques- 
tioned his form in the autumn, and 
the long lay-off produced predictions 
from some quarters that he would 
never again be the same player. 

The most biting attacks followed 
his sending-off. The FA removed the 
threat that he would be charged with 
bringing (be game into disrepute, but. 
England's hero had suddenly become 
a target for critics. 



Robson: absence made' more frustrating by excess of physical exuberance 


His manager, Ron Atkinson, was 
provoked to assert that Robson "has 
been set up for our favourite Mood 
sport Creating a sporting hero... just 
for the sheer beU of kicking him." 

Atkinson may have been over- 
sensitive, and his comparison be- 
tween his player and Ian Botham was 
hardly bdpniL The cricketer has 
given some hostages to fortune, while. 
Robson's behaviour on and off the 
field has been exemplary until now. 

A very physical player, he had 
never overstepped the bounds, as his 
disciplinary record reveals. And off 
the field, if he has any serious vices, 
they have escaped the notice of the 
Press, to whom he is unfailingly 
pleasant and helpful in spite of the 
constant demands on his time. 

His spare time is spent with his 
family or doing advertising and 
promotion work, which he sees as his 
possible directum after football He 


Iras an interest in a nightclub — in 
Bury — but he has never been 
involved in a scuffle in one, and there 
has never been a breath of scandal 
about his private or social life. 

But for all his polite openness, 
there is a reserve about Robson, 
suggesting there is still some un- 
plumbed depths. He generally keeps 
his emotions hidden, but the doubts 
and the criticism are a new experience 
for him and it will be instructive to 
see his response. 

There are suspicions that the 
frustrations of his current difficulties 
may be getting to him. The television 
evidence of his sending-off at Sunder- 
land was inconclusive - the critic 
who used it to lambast Robson either 
has outstanding eyesight or a vivid 
imagination — but his angry pursuit 
of the referee after an earlier incident 
and his hot response to Jimmy HiH’s> 
criticism were both uncharacteristic. 


United's relative decline may have, 
played its pan, for Robson's hunger 
for the League title has been much 
remarked on in football circles. What ' 
is undoubted is that his constant; 
absence with injury this year has been 
excessively frustrating for a player of 
his physical exuberance. 

Robson admits that psychological- 
ly his shoulder injury might have 
taken its toll on his performances at 
the end of last season when he 
returned before the injury was folly 
healed, but he was surprised at 
criticism of his play early this season 
when he took on a new role lo fit a dif- 
ferent formation. 

“I was sitting back more io let 
Norman Whiteside go forward, but I 
was enjoying it and I fell I was playing 
belter than ever. Ron Atkinson and' 
Bobby Robson were pleased with 
me." 

He also discounts the fears that he 
is a crock, and denies that the 
pressures are getting to him. “I leanu 
a long time ago not to take loo much 
notice of what TV and the papers say.- 
If you don't learn to ignore them, T 
don't ihink you can survive at this 
level. My family have got their health,' 
which is what matters to me, and I 
love my football. 

"All that footballers want to do is- 
go out and play football and the main 
driving force for me at the moment i$ 
just to play regularly. 1 am excited 
about the prospects, we have got the 
three biggest tournaments with the' 
FA Cup, the League championship 
and then the World Cup to go for, 2nd. 
this is a nice time to be coming back- 
to build up to the climax of the- 
season." 

As his ankle injury is less serious 
lhan it initially appeared. Robson 
should be back as soon as he 
completes his two-match baa From 
Bobby Robson down, everyone con- 
nected with English football must, 
hope that tbe captain confounds his 
critics.

RACING: AN APPRAISAL OF SOME CHOICE FIRST -SEASON STALLIONS 


Great expectations for Rousillon 


By Michael Phillips 

While racing has been 
' brought to a standstill by the 
• current freeze-up. life is 
'warming up on the studs with 
! ihc arrival of early foals. And 

will become a great deal 
“■more hectic after Saturday 
when the new covering sea- 
son begins. 

. An appraisal of the young 
horses taking up stud duties 
for the first time this year 
reveals that no one is entitled 
to look forward to the new 
breeding season more than 
the successful Saudi business- 
man Prince Khaled Abdulla, 
whose green, pink and while 
racing silks have become very 
much part of our racing life 
since 1 9S0 when Known Fact 
gave him his first taste of 
' success in a classic. During 
the past three years those 
; same colours were carried 
with distinction by both 
Rousillon and Rainbow 
Quest. 

Now the time has come tor 
those two fine equine athletes 
to attempt to pass on their 
own excellence. Such is the 
lottery of bloodstock breeding 
no one can be sure that they 
will succeed. Both are assured 
of the best possible start 
. though. 

.As the staff of our National 
.Stud mourn the loss of Mill 
Reef they can at least console 
themselves with the knowl- 
edge that they have a realty 
exciting new resident in 
Rousillon who. by pure 
chance, happens to be a 
grandson of Mill Reefs sire. 
Never Bend. 

Sadly for European breed- 
ers it did not take long to 
realise that the French had 
erred badly when they al- 
lowed Riverman. Rousilion’s 
sire, to be exported to the 
Untied States in 1980 to 
stand on the Gainesway form 
in Kentucky. 

Hindsight has shown that 
France's loss was undoubted- 
ly America’s gain. So we are 
indeed fortunate that Prince 
Khaled decided to syndicate 
Rousillon and stand him at 
Newmarket with the Nation- 
al Stud investing in five 
shares. Rousillon was a 
racehorse with fire in his 
belly and I am not remotely 
surprised that his shares and 
nominations have changed 
hands like hot-cakes. He 
looks a good bet to succeed 
as a stallion. As a racehorse

had finished his canvassing 
the horse was over subscribed 
two-fold to go to the Bacton 
Stud in Herefordshire. 

By a good son of the 
legendary Northern Dancer, 
out of a mare by Sir Ivor. 
Bairn will appeal at £6,000 
no foal no fee, more so. I sus- 
pect than his owner Sheikh 
Mohammed's other horse 
Local Suitor, who has been 
retired to the Soraeries Stud 
at double that price. 


Although Local Suitor was 
riendy gi 


Rousillon, who had few peers in top-class mile events. 


he had few peers over seven 
furlongs and a mile. 

In deciding to keep Rain- 
bow Quest in this country 
and stand him on his own 
Juddmonle Stud, near 
Wargrave-on-Thames in 
Berkshire. Prince Khaled has 
done British breeders a fur- 
ther service. Like Rousillon 
he was a top class racehorse, 
but arguably the more versa- 
tile. Also purists would say 
that be has the more appeal- 
ing bottom line in his 
pedigree. Not that that is a 
prerequisite as admirers of 
Shirley Heights will be quick 
to point out 

My memory of Rainbow 
Quest is one of a flamboyant 
mover who was blessed with 


the speed to excel over seven 
furlongs or a mile, and the 
stamina to succeed at the 
highest level over a mile and 
a half. With Blushing Groom, 
Red God and Nasrullah in 
the top half and Herbager, 
Raise A Native and Native 
Dancer in the bottom half of 
his pedigree, he combines the 
best of all worlds. 

Apart from Khaled 
Abdulla, I can think of no 
other person who will be 
looking forward to the new 
breeding season more than 
Rhydian Morgan-Jones, the 
mana g in g director of Thor- 
oughbred Management Ser- 
vices. 

For apart from organising 
the syndication of Rousillon, 


his relatively newly-formed 
London-based company is 
also managing the affairs of 
Bairn, Never So Bold, 
Norwich and Siberian Ex- 
press, alt new to the ranks of 
stallions. 

While syndicating Never 
So Bold in the middle of that 
triumphant sprinting season 
last year to stand on the 
Brook Stud would have been 
child's play to have suddenly 
been placed with the order to 
do likewise with Bairn, as 
late as January, can not have 
been easy in view of fierce 
competition from the Irish 
National Stud. 

But Morgan-Jones did it in 
the space of ten days and 
what is more by the time he 


sufficiently gifted at home to 
inspire his trainer, Dick 
Hem. to say in the spring of 
last year that he was bis best 
hope of winning the 2,000 
Guineas since Brigadier Ge- 
rard the fact remains Local 
Suitor was never seen again 
in public after running badly 
in the Craven Stakes first 
time out as a three-year-old. 
So be retired with a question 
mark over his head as did 
Claude Monet, who never 
fulfilled Daniel Wildenstein's 
hopes and expectations be- 
cause of a breathing problem. 

But at £2.500 no foal no 
fee some will be happy to 
take a chance with Claude 
Monet on the Derisley Wood 
Suid bearing in mind the fact 
that be is by the American 
champion Affirmed, out of 
that nigh-class mare Maddia, 
who is by Caro. 

Talking of Caro, whose son 
Cozzene was one of the stars 
of the show during last year's 
Breeders Cup series, Siberian 
Express, another of his sons, 
is already assured of a foil 
book also on the Derisley 
Wood Stud. 

In Ireland, where that 
colossal operation at 
Coolmore has been expanded 
still further by the addition of 
both Commanche Run and 
Law Society, the Aga Khan's 
Ballymany Stud, on the edge 
of the Curragh, has also got a 
double injection of new 
blood with the arrival of 
Mouktar along with 
Shernazar. 

Finally, with the passing of 
Mill Reef Sonia Rogers now 
has an additional reason to 
be pleased with her shrewd 
decision to stand that great 
horse's son King of Clubs on 
her Airiie Stud, which be- 
came a cornerstone of Irish 
breeding under the guidance 
of her late husband, Tim, and 
is happily remaining so under 
her direction. 


Newnes set for return in July 


Banned Jockey Billy Newnes 
wiil be back in the saddle from 
July, and riding as No 1 jockey 
"for trainer Henry Candy. The 
Jockey Club yesterday an- 
nonoced it had cm short the 
three-year ban less than 24 
boars after its disciplinary 
committee heard an appeal by 
the former champion appren- 
tice. 

Newnes was banned to Jana- 
ary. 1984 for three years for 
accepting a bribe. 

Newnes^tged 26, who heard 
the news from trainer Candy 
yesterday morai ng , s a i d: “I feel 
good. It is a good result- They 
don't win. I don’t win. I'm quite 
and looking forward to 
back to raring.” 

* The Jockey Club statement 
said: “Having given Mr 
Newnes* application fall 
consideration the committee 


decided that his disqualification 
will be withdrawn as from July 
1, 1986 at which tune he may 
appy to the licensing co mmitte e 
of the Jockey Chib. 

As a resalt Newnes will miss 
the first half of the FUt season 
which includes four of the five 
classics, bnt he vowed be woold 
return “as determined as. 
everJU be fighting for every 
ride, and only time will tdl 
whether 1 wflil find anything 
different this time ronad. 

“It's not been easy over the 
past two yean. It's been an 
experience and I’ve learnt a 
hell of a lot. After yesterday's 
hearing I didn't know what to 
expect The Jockey Cfeb 
weren't going to lie down in 
defeat. They were under pres- 
sure. The press and public were 
behind me. Their support has 
been unbelievable.” 


Newnes has worked as 
£5,000 a year stable lad for 
Candy since the ban. imposed 
after be was found guilty of 
accepting a “gift” of £1,000 
from professional gambler 
Harry Bardsley after riding 
Valuable Witness into fifth 
place in the Queens Vase at 
Royal Ascot in Jane. 1983. 
Newnes was said to have told 
Bardsley that the horse, who 
started 9-2 favourite for the 
race, woold not act on the 
prevailing firm ground.

SNOOKER 


First title 
brings 
Meo joy 


By Sydney Frisian 


Tony Meo. now preparing to 
meet Steve Newbury in the 
Dulux British Open champion- 
ship at Derby on February 19, 
declared himself ready to meet 
all comers yesterday after bis 9- 
7 victory over Neal Foulds in 
the final of the Tolly Cobbold 
. English professional champion- 
ship at Ipswich on Wednesday 
mght- 

Afier seven years of total 
commitment as a professional, 
the left-handed Meo won his 
first individual title in the 
United Kingdom and at the 
end of his prolonged struggle 
against Foulds could not hide 
bis emotion. The tears of joy 
soon gave way :o smiles as be 
said: “I had begun to doubt my 
temperament but never my 
ability, and now there is plenty 
in the tank ready to explode. 
Of course. 1 want to win the ti- 
tle; every snooker player does." 


Meo won with a fluent break 
of 94. It was a relief from the 
labours in some of the preced- 
ing frames, both players having 
compromised their positional 
play in order to get their shots. 


Foulds, 


22, playing an 


, layn 

important final for tne first 


time in his three-year career as 
a professional, had fought 
too Lb and nail for survival. 
Meo received £18.000 as first 
prize and Foulds £11.000. 
together with a sum of £2.000 
for the highest break of 107.

Lausanne (Reuter) — The 
Executive Board of the Inter-

have backed a proposal to 
throw open the summer and 
winter Games to all athletes, 
including currently excluded 
professionals. The 1 1 -member 
board endorsed a plan to give 
“professional and state athletes 
the same opportunity", accord- 
ing to the president, Juan 
Antonio Samaranch. 


Olympic Eligibility Committee 
will be submitted to a 91- 
nation general assembly which 
will decide on the issue in 
Lausanne in October. 


Olympic officials said they 
tpected f 


This was a reference to 
professional athletes in western 
and South American countries, 
many of whom are barred from 
Olympic competition, and the 
state athletes maintained by 
socialist countries for the 
Olympics. The proposal by the 


expected the assembly to adopt 
the proposal and amend the 
Olympic Charter eligibility rule 
with immediate effect. The 
various Internationa] sporting 
federations would then have to 
decide whether to change their 
rules to permit the pro- 
fessionals to compete, the 
officials added. 


“If the change is adopted we 
will tell the international sports 
federations that we will accept 
for Olympic competition all 
athletes whom they propose,” 


Samaranch said. “It will then 
be up to them to decide.” The 
move would pul pressure on 
the various federations to 
remove restrictions that pre- 
vent professional athletes from 
competing in the Olympics. 

Hie International Football 
Federation and the Inter- 
national Ice Hockey Federation 
impose age restrictions and bar 
World Cup or National Hockey 
League players from Olympic 
competition. The board specifi- 
cally approved accepting all 
football, ice hockey and tennis 
players. Samaranch said. Ten- 
nis will return as a full 
Olympic sport at the 1988 
Seoul Games for the first time 
since the 1924 Games in Paris.

Connors 
snaps 
back into 
action 


From Richard Evans 
Boca Raton, Florida 


A winter chill has started to 
nip at the night-time air here 
but it merely seemed to give 
Jimmy Connors the excuse to 
faster, hit harder and 


run 


generally waste as little time as 
possible in beating Steve Den- 
ton 6-2, 6-4 in the first round 
of the Lipion international 
players' championships. 

Connors was a late entry for 
this two-week event. His de- 
cision to play stemmed from a 

quarter-final loss in Memphis 
last week and a realization that 
be needed some match 
practice. “I need to hit some 
balls.” he explained to Rod 
Humphries, a veteran official, 
as be emerged from semi- 
retirement in Texas, where he 
breeds Dobermann pinschers. 

Connors is a pretty tame dog 
these days but, for his oppo- 
nents. there used to be a time 
when there was little to choose 
between feeing a snarling 
Connors on a tennis court or a 
Dobermann off il Both experi- 
ences tended to leave you 
scarred and bloody. 

Connors, who pulled out of 
the Nabisco Masters with flu. 
had not played a grand prix 
event prior to Memphis since 
the Seiko Classic in Tokyo last 
October. Amazingly, one has to 
go back to that same tour- 
nament in 1984 to trace 
Connors' last tournament win. 
Yet such is the man's consis- 
tency that he is still managing 
to hold on to the No 4 spot in 
the ATP world rankings. 

Connors was asked after his 
match if he felt frustrated at 
not being able to win titles any 
more. “No, frustration is the 
wrong word,” he replied. 
“Frustration comes when you 
are young and haven't won 
anything. I have won my share 
and I just try to play to the best 
of my ability.” 

There seems to be no 
thought of imminent retire- 
ment at the age of 33. “I would 
be stupid to walk away from a 
career that still pays me so 
well." he said. 

As so often happens, players 
who scored big upsets in the 
opening round were unable to 
capitalize on the opportunity 
presented by knocking out 
seeds. Chile's Ricardo Acuna, 
who defeated the' No 12 seed. 
Paul Annacone. lost in round 
two to the rugged Californian 
Marty Davis, while Wolfgang 
Popp of West Germany went 
down to the American Glenn 
Layen decker after beating the 
No I6 seed, Scott Davis. 

Scott Davis — unrelated to 
Marty — was a finalist here last 
year and will now suffer a 
heavy fell on the ATP com- 
puter. The same is true for the 
unfortunate Tim Mayotte, who 
was forced to default in the 
final. of the* -US professional 
indoor championships in 
Philadelphia two weeks ago 
with a pulled stomach muscle. 
Mayotte tried to get himself fit 
in time to defend his Upton 
title but was forced -to with- 
draw. • 

That gave rise to one of 
those situations that make up a 
tennis pro’s nightmare. Norm 
ScheUenger, who had fought his 
way through to the penultimate 
round of qualifying, was the 
first in line for the 128-man 
draw. But when Mayotte with- 
drew shortly before his match 
with Leif Shiras was due to be 
called, no one could find 
leflenger. So his place went 
to Bud Cox. who duly went out 
and beat Shiras 6-7. 6-2, 6-4. 

For Scbellenger, who would 
have gained his first precious 
ATP point even if be had lost, 
the news of Cox's success will 
only compound his misery. 
Winning is the hard part; being 
in the right place at the right 
time is etetnemary. No one 
ever had to tefl Jimmy Con- 
nors that

ICE SKATING 

British champion 
omitted from 
team for Geneva 


By John Hennessy 


(US) fat B Herr( 


By a large majority the 
skating of dm 

rifmal Skating Association have 
preferred Sosas Jackson, the 
deposed British champion, to 
Joanne Comray, the new holder 
of the tide, for the world 

championships, bx Geneva next 
month. There was nearly a frill 
master at the committee and ail 
hot a few of the 22 selectors 
voted for Miss Jackson, who. at 
20, is six years the senior. 

She will be accompanied, in a 
desperately thin team, by 
Cheryl Peake and Andrew 
Naylor, ne wc omers to the pairs 
event, and the ice dance 
champions, Sharon Jones and 
Paul AsfchanL. There will be no 
British entry for the men's 
event, becanse Stephen 
P fefca vance, who retained his 
title m November, skated too 
poorly in the European 
championships in Copenhagen 
last month to encourage the 
hope of a worthwhile result in 
Geneva. 

Miss Conway win no doubt 
be deeply disappointed, as will 
her trainers in the United 
States, Carlo and Christa 
Fasm; bat she can hardly deny 
that Miss Jackson, after a 
comprehensive defeat in the 
British championships at SoB- 
hnD hi November, bounced 
back with a good deal of 
restfeact to finish seventh in 
the Eu ropean championships, 
fear places ahead of Mbs 
Conway. She thereby took the 
score to 2-1 between tire two 
skaters as she had beaten her 
young challenger in the St Ivel 
International at Richmond in 
September. 

At SofilmB Mfes Conway 
had pr ecociously ootseored her 
mere experienced opponent at 
all points, bnt the roles were 
glaringly reversed in Copen- 
hagen. Serious wkhltw in all 
three dements of the com- 
petition no doubt convinced 
most of the selectors that Miss 


Conway was not yet ready Tor 
the big occasion. 

It is an age-oM dilemma in 
sport, whether to pimp for the 
security of experience or ran 
ffce risk of damaging a bnrgeea- 
ing bloom by over-exposure 
before the time b right. It b a 
pity that figure staring has bo 
suitable equhafem to the 

gardener's "hardening of T cold 
frame. 

Is November Mbs Conway 
seemed a dazriiog prospect (as 
indeed she still is), with sound 

compulsory figures, rock -solid 
command of the required de- 
ments in the hazardous short 
programme, apart perhaps from 
a questionable take-off is the 
doable lutz, nod a versatile free 
skating, routine. The stamina 
was there too, with a third 
double axeL perhaps the criti- 
cal jump for women, placed jnst 
before the end of her pro- 
gramme. 

Miss Jackson, by striking 
contrast, achieved only one 
double axeL early in ber 
programme, baring to reduce 
another f» a single jump. In 
triple jumps, ns welt the 
younger skater bad the edge. 
Kit Miss Conway looked a 
different proposition in Copen- 
hagen, with a c or r e sp ondin g 
loss of confidence, and it may- 
be right to spare her a still 
more damning experience in 
Geneva, with the rest of the 
world in the field. 


Yet the records suggest that 
Miss Conway's tender years 
should net necessarily have told 
against her. Katerina Witt the 
present holder of the world title 
for East Germany, first com- 
peted at 13, Elaine Zayak, the 
American winner in 1982. at 

14. and three ether recent 
winners. Denise Biellmann 
(Switzerland), Axmet Poetzsch 
(East Germany) and Linda 
Fratiamae (United States), at

BASKETBALL 


England running out 
of time for Europe 

By Nicholas Hailing 


England players returned to 
their dubs yesterday, still 


stunned by the way they had 
to Switzerland 


managed to lose 
at Leicester the night before. 

Luckily for them their 77-65 
defeat did not really matter as 
both teams had already failed) 
to qualify from group D of the 
world championship, but with 


presuge mattering and a good 

wd e: 


crowd expecting a performance 
worthy of the English Basket 
Ball Association’s golden ju- 
bilee celebrations, it was not 
really what Bill Beswick, the 
England coach, had anticipated 
of his players 

Beswick claimed that his 
squad were not too relaxed, 
either going into the match — 
having beaten the Swiss by 15 
points in BeUinzona a year ago 
— or coining out for the second 
half, leading by five points, but 
some of his players clearly 
thought otherwise, “Maybe we 


were not pysched up enough.” 

kind 


Dan Lloyd said. “It was 
of stagnant out there.” was the 
verdict of Drew SewelL 
Paul Stimpson. England's 
captain, suggested that “maybe 
it was the best thing that could 
have happened to England.” 
but as the previous three 
results had been gallant defeats 
by West Germany, Czecho- 
slovakia and Israel, the last two 
in the world championship, it 
was difficult to agree. 

The one bright factor to 
emerge from the game was the 
performance of Dave Gardner, 
England’s top scorer with 23 
points. It was when Gardner 
retired to the bench, having 


committed four fouls, that 
England began to wilt disas- 
trously. When he left. England 
were nine points up. looking 
good for a comfortable victory. 

By the time he returned. 10 
minutes later. Switzerland were 
12 points up. having scored 25 
points without reply. Unfortu- 
nately for England, Gardner 
was no longer “hot" and the 6ft 
9in centre from Sharp Man- 
chester United could contribute 
only two more points to 
England's fading cause. 

It would not have mattered 
so much if the other players 
had responded, but that was 
not the case. Colin McNish, 
who had begun hia first 
international with such high 
hopes, finished with not a 
single point, leaving Switzer- 
land, inspired by their point 
guard, Stoc ka) per. the scoter of 
28 points, flushed with the 
success of their first win in the 
group. 

Suggestions that 

Switzerland's preparation had 
been longer and better or- 
ganized proved unfounded, as 
their coach, the Dutchman. 
Hugo Harrewijn, revealed that 
his squad had been together 
only since Sunday, the same zs 
England, since when they had 
played - and lost — two 
internationals in the Nether- 
lands. With the European 
Championships due to begin in 
April, England lave little time 
in which to improve.

GOLF: THE CIRCUITS OF MIXED PROMISE 


Nicklaus earnest about 
issue of retirement 


From John Bai lan tine 
Oahu, Hawaii 


Will Jack Nicklaus announce 
his retirement from com- 
petition if he does not puli out 
of his terrible slump? The 
“Golden Bear" faced this 
question with all the equanim- 
ity of a veteran who knows that 
his days are numbered before 
he iced off in the $500,000 
Hawaiian open yesterday on 
the par-72 Waialae course. 

“I'll not continue to play if 1 

think I can't win.” he said 
firmly, repeating a declaration 
he made in Phoenix Iasi week. 
Ns in Arizona. Nicklaus. aged 
-to. is making an unexpected 
appearance here, and il is clear 
that he desperately needs a few 
good rounds to show not only 
that he thinks he can still win 
but that he actually can. 

I doubt that Nicklaus will 
soldier on if he continues to 
play as moderately as he did in 
Phoenix and af Pebble Beach. 
He is fer too proud to show 
himself in less than a potential 
champion's colours. Deane 
Beman's view is that Nicklaus 
could probably win four or five 
more tides if he devoted 
himself entirely to golf again 
and gave up some of the mind- 
sapping business interests 
which are reputed to bring in 
an annual income in excess of 
S3S0 million, most of this from 


course building and related real 
estate. 

Players this year have found 
a considerable extra hazard 
here in the form of a three-acre 
lake that lies between the 
fairways of the 352yd second 
hole and the 412yd third hole. 
Both dogleg slightly to the left, 
and the lake, which cost 
$300,000 to build and which 
holds three million gallons, is 
there to catch any ball slightly 
pulled. 

Greg Nichols, the head pro 
here, explained that the lake 
was built to make the course 
more of a championship test 
and to serve as a reservoir for 
the irrigation system. 

On most modem American 
courses, especially in the south, 
water is vital because most 
grass is planted or seeded and 
heavily fertilized. The English 
head groundsman at the Phoe- 
nix country club, lor instance, 
uses one million gallons a day 
on his automatic sprinkler 
system. In Florida, virgin 
fairways are planted with sprigs 
or heat-resisting grass, and then 
die groundsmen boast. -Put on 
plenty of water and jump 
backT Play can begin about 
four or five months later on 
such courses.

Britons bring their influence to bear 


Nicklaus: outside interests 


of his tremendous performance 
last Sunday, was one of the 
very late starters. 

No British or European 
professional has ever won the 
Hawaiian Open, which was 
started in 1965. There have 
been two foreign winners. 
Bruce Crampton. of Australia, 
in 1969 and Isao Aoki, of 
Japan, in 1983. The latter won 
with one' of the most 
wonderous last shots ever 
executed in tournament play, a 
full wedge from the rough at 
the 539-yard 18th straight into 
the hole. 


Open later 


The British Women’s Open 
championship will be beW at 
Royal Birkdale, Southport, 
from October 9 to 12. It had 
been p ropos e d to stage the 
event in July, but none of the 
leading American players 
would have been available at 
that time. 


A group of 15 British 
professional gutters tasking in 
the Sooth African wmshir 
these past few month s have 
mounted a spirited counter 
offensive against anti-aparthe i d

British competitors oa the

they are helping to maintain 
the caase of bbUhkMmi in 
Sooth Africa. “We play with a 
lot more Mack golfers in every 
tournament here than you will 
find in a British or European 
crest,” Warren Humphries 
said. “In Csct, I can't think of 
any black golfers presently 
playing the European draft.'' 

No fewer than 38 of the 158-

bers are now Mack, and they

Denial of worker’s appeal 
can make dismissal unfair

[Speeches sold February ill 
In deciding whether an cm- 
pjoycr had acted reasonably in 
dismissing an employee, an 
industrial tribunal could take 
mio account evidence which 
came available for consideration 
oy the employer when holding 
an internal appeal against the 
dismissal; and therefore, where 
an employee was denied an 
appeal to which he was contrac- 
tually entitled, thai in itscir could 
justtty a finding of unfair 
dismissal. 

The House of Lords so held in 
allowing an appeal by Mr Ernest 
Tipton from the order of the 

Court of Appeal (Lord Justice 
Ackner. Lord Justice Slade and 
Lord Justice Purchas) ([19851 
ICR 444) who had reversed the 
order of the Employment Appeal 
Tribunal who upheld a finding of 
unlair dismissal by an industrial 
tribunal. 

Mr Michael BclofT. QC and 
Mr John Hand For the employee* 
Mr M.K Lee. QC and Mr John 
Mitling for the employers. 

LORD BRIDGE said that the 
employee, employed as a milk 
worker for 37 years, had a ted 
record of absenteeism. After 
warnings he was summarily 
dismissed. 

Under the terms of his 
contract of employment he was 
entitled to appeal to the society's 
chief executive officer, but the 
employers refused to entertain 
his appeal. The industrial tri- 
bunal upheld his claim for unfair 
dismissal and the Employment 
Appeal Tribunal dismissal the 
employers* appeal. 

The Court of Appeal held that 
ihc question “whether ... the 
employer acted reasonably” un- 
der section 57(3) of the Employ- 
ment Protection (Consolidation) 
Act 1978 fell to be determined as 
at the date of summary dis- 
missal and that nothing after 
that date could be taken into 
account as relevant to that 
question. 

The appeal therefore raised a 
question of considerable im- 
portance in industrial relations 
law. 

A substantial body of case law. 
based on decisions of the 
Employment Appeal Tribunal, 
supported the view that where an 
employer's reason for dismissing 


an employee had been examined 
|n the course of an agreced 
internal disciplinary procedure 
and that appeal had been 
dismissed, the industrial tribunal 
might take into account evidence 
available on the appeal in 
determining whether the em- 
ployer acted reasonably in treat- 
ing his reason for dismissal as 
sufficient. 

If that view was right it would 
follow ihat a denial to the 
employee of a contractual right 
to an internal appeal could by 
itself justify a finding of unfair 
dismissal. i 

Conversely, if the Court of 
Appeal were right, ii would 
follow that in every case where 
there had been a domestic 
appeal, the industrial tribunal 
wovdjt have to put on blinkers 
and consider only whether the 
employer acted reasonably in his 
original decision to dismiss, 
notwithstanding that when he 
rejected the employee's domestic 
appeal he might have been acting 
quite unreasonably in the light of 
the further information pre- 
sented to him in the coarse of 
the appeal. 

Under section 57 there were 
three questions to be answered in 
determining whether a dismissal 
was fair (I ) What was the reason 
for the dismissal? (2) Was that 
reason a reason falling within 
section 57(2) or some other 
substantial reason of a kind such 
as to justify* the dismissal of an 
employee holding the position 
which that employee held? (3) 
Did the employer act reasonably 
or unreasonably in treating that 
reason as a sufficient reason for 
dismissing the employee? 

The reason shown by the 
employer in answer to question 
(I) might aptly be termed the 
real reason; the answer to 
question (2) would depend on 
the application of the statutoiy 
criteria to that reason. Then 
came the crucial question (3). 

Conduct unrelated to the real 
reason for dismissal obviously 
could not affect the answer to 
that question. That, and no 
more, was what 1C. Devis & Sons 
Ltd v Atkins ([1977] AC 931) 
decided. 


But there was nothing in the * such a case. 


v Savage ([1981] ICR M. if the 
domestic appeal succeeded, the 
employee wits reinstated with 
retrospective effect: if it failed 
the summary dismissal took 
effect fmm the original date. 

Thus, in so far as the original 
dismissal and the dcctsion on the 
domestic appeal were governed 
by the same consideration — the 
real reason for dismissal — there 
was no reason to treat the 
effective date of lerminaiion as a 
watershed which separated the 
one process from the other. 

Both the original and appellate 
decision were, in any case where 
an employee invoked a contrac- 
tual right of appeal, necessary 
elements in the overall process of 
terminating the contract of 
employment. 

To separate them and consider 
only one half of the process was 
to introduce an unnecessary 
artificiality into unfair dismissal 
proceedings. 

That conclusion was power- 
fully reinforced by the decisions 
in the Employment Appeal 
Tribunal. 

A dismissal was unfair if the 
employer unreasonably treated 
his real reason as a sufficient 
reason to dismiss the employee, 
cither when he made his original 
decision to dismiss or when he 
maintained ihat decision at the 
conclusion of an internal appeal. 

By the same token, a dismissal 
could be held to be unfair when 
the employer had refused to 
entertain an appeal to which the 
employee was contractually en- 
titled and thereby dented him 
the opportunity of showing that 
the employer's real reason for 
dismissal could not reasonably 
be treated as sufficient. 

There could, of course, be 
cases where, on the undisputed 
facts, the dismissal was in- 
evitable. as where a misted 
employee, before dismissal, was 
charged with, and pleaded guilty 
to a serious offence of dishonesty 
committed in the course of his 
employment. 

In such a case the employer 
could reasonably refuse to enter- 
tain an appeal on the ground that 
it could not affect the outcome. 
It had never been suggested, 
however, that the present was 


Ford has just completed a cosily 
exercise to promote the face-lifted 
range of Escort and Orion models 
which will be reaching showrooms 
soon. It flew several plane loads of 
British motoring journalists to 
Finland to test the cars in near- 
arctic conditions of snow and ice 
with temperatures a! times below 
-20C. 

On the foce of iL that seemed to 
make sound commercial sense, 
because the new Escorts and 
Orions are the first “cheap" 
family care to be offered with an 
anti-lock; brake system. 

Even more newsworthy from a 
British point of view is that it is 
the new Lucas Girting Skid 
Control System (SCS), which is 
considerably cheaper than the 
more complex electronic Bosch 
and Teves systems. It appears to 
herald the breakthrough in price 
necessary to make anti-lock equip- 
ment compulsory for all cars. 

Ideal test conditions for anti-lock 
braking is a strip of icy road. But 
even better is a frozen lake of the 
type which hide around every 
comer in Finland. 

It is then a simple matter of set- 
ting up a line of plastic cones and 
inviting drivers to approach the 
end of the line at speed. Then 
apply the brakes and experience 
the “miracle” of being able to 
keep your foot hard on the brake 
pedal and still be able to steer in 
and out of the line of cones. 

We were turned loose on some 
200 km of roads, many with 
polished ice covered by a fine 
1 layer of new snow. An even 
, tougher and more practical lest of 
the. new system? Alas no. At this 
lime of year Finnish law requires 
all motor vehicles to be fitted with 
tyres impregnated with tiny metal 
studs. The grip they provide is 
quite incredible. Cars can be 
hurtled around on packed snow 
and ice at great speed and their 
braking efficiency has to be 
experienced to be believed. 

Despite this handicap we did 
our best to assess the efficiency of 


the new Girling system. You 
could 3pply emergency braking 
and still continue to steer but. 
there was no means of comparing 
this with similar care equipped 
with studs but noi ami-lock. 

Ford explained that they had 
hoped to provide a lake surface 
but the weather was too warm 
until shortly before we arrived 
and they were not prepared to 
trust the ice. 

One thing I did learn, however, 
from my Finnish trip was the 
immense damage caused to road 
surfaces by studs. For mile after 
mile motorway surfaces -were 
marred by treacherous ruts up to 
2 inches deep. They exactly 
matched the wheel tracks of the 
average car and had to be treated 
with great caution. 

Alfa’s struggle 

Alfa Romeo is still trying to get its 
act together in Britain. The latest 
moves include the appointment of 
yet another sales director, the 
arrival of two significant new 
variants in its best selling Alfa 33 
range and the promise that the 
much delayed Alfa 75 replace- 
ment for the Giulietto and Aifetta 
will be here this summer. 

But is it already too late? From 
a peak of 1 3.000 care in 1979 sales 
have plummeted to a little over 
3.000 last year. No one can live 
with those sort of losses, least of 
all the company's dealers. In the 
last two years it has lost nearly 
half its dealer network. 

It is true that many of them 
were handling other franchises 
besides .Alfa and were simply 
forced out of business by the cut- 
price discount war which shows 
no signs of easing. But there were 
equally desertions to other makes 
by dealers who saw no future with 
the famous old marque. 

Sadly the new- sales director Bill 
McMasiers arrived shortly before 
the sudden death of his father, 
one of Northern Ireland's most 
respected motoring writers. Bill

Whether foreign proceedings are 
in a civil or commercial matter 





In re State of Norway's applica- 
tion 

Before Lord Justice Kerr. Lord 
Justice Glidewell and Lord 
Justice Ralph Gibson 
[Judgment given February I2[ 

The Court of--AppeaL while 
allowing by a majority an appeal 
against an order Wider section i 
of the Evidence (Proceedings in 
Other Jurisdictions) Act 1975 for 
the oral examination of witnesses 
whose evidence was required for 
use in foreign proceedings, 
considered the test which an 
English court should apply in 
determining whether the foreign 
proceedings were “proceedings in 
a civil or commercial matter” 
within section l so as to confer 
jurisdiction on the English court 
to give effect to a foreign court's 
request for the oral examination. 

The court (Lord Justice Ralph 
Gibson dissenting) allowed an 
appeal by Lord Kindersley and 
Mr AJ. Hardman, against an 
order of Mr Justice McNeill on 
July 24. 1984. whereby he. in 
compliance with a request from 
the SandeQord City Court Nor- 
way. on an application by the 
State of Norway, ordered that 
they present themselves for oral 
examination pursuant io section 
i of the 1975 Act. 

The court allowed the appeal 
on the ground that the terms of 
the letter of request were too 
wide and constituted a “fishing 
expedition". 

Mr Michael Crystal. QC and 
Mr John Higham for the 
witnesses: Mr Anthony Boswood 
for Norway; Mr Nicholas Brarza 
for the estate of the deceased. 

LORD JUSTICE KERR said 
that the evidence of the wit- 
nesses. a director and a former 
manager of Lazard Brothers & 
Co Ltd. was required by the 
foreign court in aid of proceed- 
ings brought by the estate of the 
deceased shipowner. Anders 
Jahre. against the State of 
Norway, concerning a disputed 
retrospective assessment for tax 
on the deceased’s estate for 1972 
to 1 982 for 338 million Kroner. 

The letter requested that the 
witnesses give information, inter 
aha. about the ownership of 
funds and shares in a client 
company and the deceased's 
dealings in company operations. 

Master Prebble granted an ex 
parte application by the state for 
the oral examination of the 
witnesses without qualification. 
Mr Justice McNeill dismissed 
Ihc witnesses' appeal against the 
order subject to certain direc- 
tions limiting the scope of the 
questions which they could be 
required to answer. 

The estate was joined as a 
pany in those proceedings on 
terms. They opposed the appeal. 

The witnesses sought to set 
aside the judge's order. The state 
and estate cross-appealed for the 
removal of the directions. 

Proceedings were currently 
pending in Norway relating to 
the retrospective tax assess- 
ments. namely, an action by _lhe 
estate in the requesting 
SandeQord City Court to have 
the assessment set aside, and an 
appeal by the estate to the 
National Tax Committee. 

The 1975 Act was passed 
mainlv in order to give effect to 
the accession by the United 
Kingdom to i he Hague Conven- 
tion on the Taking of Euaence 
Abroad in Civil or Commercial 
Matters, of March IS. I ^ 70 - 

Thc following issues, inter 
aha. arose i n deter m i n i ng 
whether the English courts 
should comply with the letter or 

request: . ■„ 

ii) whether the proceedings in 
the SandeQord City Court were 
-civil proceedings wtthm the 
ambit of the 1975 Act: 

mi whether it would be contrary 

io public policy and } ht r s* 1 ™? 
principle thai the English courts 


would not lend their assistance 
to the direct or indirect enforce- 
ment of foreign tax liabilities to 
comply with the request: 
ffii) whether the request was too 
wide and amounted to a “fishing 
expedition^ • 

(iv) whether the witnesses should 
be ordered to breach their duty 
of confidentiality by answering 
the questions raised in the letter 
of request. 

The court should strive to give 
effect to the request of the 
foreign court unless it was driven 
io the clear conclusion that it 
could not properly do so: see 
U'i/iiams and Humbert Ltd v 
H7/ Trade Marks (Jersey) Ltd 
( The Times December 17. 1985; 
{1986] 2 WLR 24). 

..Having regard to the pro- 
visions of sections l. 2. 3 and 9 
of the 1975 Act. in deciding 
uhether it had jurisdiction to 
comply with the letter of request. 
the court addressed in the 
United Kingdom had to be 
satisfied that the evidence to 
which the application related was 
to be obtained for the purposes 
of proceedings in the requesting 
court which could properly be 
categorized as proceedings in a 
civil or commercial matter. 

That phrase was used in 
numerous international conven- 
tions and was of considerable 
international significance. 

In construing the statute.' 
reference could property be made 
to the 1970 Convention, but that 
provided no assistance as to how 
the court shoutd categorize the 
foreign proceedings. 

In his Lordship's judgment, 
the court addressed would satisfy 
itself that the proceedings con- 
cerned a civil or commercial 
matter under the law of the 
requesting court, but would only 
accept that categorization for the 
purpose of assuming jurisdiction 
if it did not conflict with any 
fundamental principle recognised 
under the laws of the court 
addressed. 

If the requesting court acted in 
accordance with the principles of 
international comity, it should 
refrain from making any request 
under the 1970 Convention or 
the 1975 An unless the proceed- 
ings before it were "proceedings 
in a civil or commercial matter” 
by its own law. 

But the court addressed could 
not be wholly bound by the 
requesting court's classification. 
If. for example, proceedings 
would dearly be regarded as 
criminal or penal by the law of 
ihc court addressed, but were 
nevertheless characterized as 
proceedings in a civil matter by 
the requesting court, it was open 
to the court addressed to decline 
to accede to the request as a 
matter of discretion, if not on 
jurisdictional grounds. 

The SandeQord action could 
be regarded as a proceeding in a 
civil matter by the law of 
Norway. It was dearly a civil 
proceeding by English law. 

h was a principle of general 
international acceptance that En- 
glish courts had no jurisdiction 
to cnienain an action for the 
direct or indirect enforcement of 
a revenue law of a foreign state: 
sec Dicev & Morris. The Conflict 
of Lavs 10th edition (1980) vol 
I. PP 89-90. 

However, it was open to doubt 
whether a request for evidential 
assistance pursuant to section „ 
of the 1975 Act in a foreign coun 
concerning a foreign resident s 
tax liability, was properly de- 
scribablc as an action for direct . 
or indirect enforcement of a 
revenue law of a foreign state. 

Williams end Humbert UJ r 
117# Trade Marks (Jersey) Ltd 
suggested that the principle in 
Dicey «fi Morris was to be 
construed narrowly. 

Had ihc request in the present 
case been made in opposition to 


the estate, his Lordship would 
have concluded that the request 
should be refused both as a 
matter of public policy and 
discretion. But the estate sup- 
ported the request. 

It would not be contrary to 
comity or public policy to accede 
to a request made by the state 
and the taxpayer. 

The court would nor lend its 
assistance to* a “fishing 
expedition”, where what was 
sought was not evidence as such 
but information which might 
lead to a line of inquiry which 
would disdosc evidence. . . 

The scope of the present 
request was so wide that it went 
far beyond the elicitation of 
“evidence" and contained a great 
deal of impermissible “fishing" 
The court was in no position to 
bring it into conformity with 
what would be permissible. The 
appeal would be allowed on that 
ground. 

His Lordship would also allow 
the appeal on the issue of 
confidentiality. 

The court had to carry out a 
balancing exercise. In the scales 
on one side had to be placed the 
desirable policy of assisting a 
foreign court, in the present case 
supported by both parties to the 
foreign litigation. 

On the other side was the 
opposing principle that the court 
would give great weight to the 
desirability of upholding the 
duty of confidence in relation- 
ships in which, as here, it was 
clearly entitled to recognition 
and respect. 

Which way the balance tilted 
depended on the weight properly 
to.be given to all the other 
circumstances of the case. In the 
present case the balance was 
against compelling the witnesses 
io violate their duty of con- 
fidence. 

LORD JUSTICE GLIDE- 
WELL said that he agreed with 
Lord J ust ice Kerr that the 
proceedings in the SandeQord 
City Court were civil proceedings 
-within section 1 of the 1975 Act. 
He also agreed wiih his 
Lordship's reasons on the tax 
issue. 

If there was evidence that a 
customer of Lazards acted as the 
deceased’s agent or nominee in 
relation to any proceeding before 
ihc SandeQord court, the im- 
portance of assisting the 
SandeQord court could properly 
be held to outweigh any duty of 
confidence owed to such a 
person. 

' But in the case of a person 
under no such relationship with 
the deceased, the disclosure of 
information would be an unjusti- 
fied breach of confidence which 
the English courts should not 
require. 

In the present case it was not 
alleged that Lazards or the 
witnesses acted personally for the 
deceased. 

LORD JUSTICE RALPH 
GIBSON said that he agreed that 
the witnesses had failed to show 
that the court lacked jurisdiction 
to order ihc witnesses to attend 
before an examiner for oral 
examination under the 1975 Act. 

Bur his Lordship would dis- 
miss the appeal on the "fishing” 
ground. The icons of the request 
were wide but that followed from 
the subject matter of the 
proceedings and the witnesses 
could be protected by being 
legally represented at the 
examination.

Alfa 33: Clat 


its way up sales charts 


junior admits that there has been 
“grave mismanagement” in the 
past and that the best the 
company can hope for this year is 
to consolidate on its present 3.000 
sales a year, import a more 
rationalized range and try not to 
be drawn into the worst excesses 
of the discount war. 

One of the most experienced 
salesmen to hold the post, he 
spent his first ten years selling 
Chryslers in Northern Ireland, the 
next nine with Fiat UK. two years 
in Saudi Arabia with Nissan and 
came to Britain a month ago from 
the post of national sales manager 
of Alfa Romeo South Africa. 

He immediately plunged into a 
morale boosting tour of dealer- 
ships ending with a national 
dealer conference last week. 

He has already identified a 
major problem area as the need 
for a more realistic pricing policy. 
At the same time he is drawing 
what liule comfort there is to be 
had from the news that second- 
hand values of Alfa models are at 
last beginning to harden. 

The Alfa 33 replacement for the 
much lo -ed Alfasud in September 
1983 was little short of a disaster. 
The 33 was too upmarket. 
Overnight the company lost its 
bread and butter car. Since then 
33 has dawed its way painfully up 
the sales chans and is at last 
beginning to establish a following. 
This year it will account for about 
half the Alfas sold here. 

Bui the. company's attraction 
over the years has been its sporty 
image. Neither of the existing 1.3 
and 1.5 litre 33 base models are 
particlarly swift. You have to go 
up to the 1.5 Green Ooverleaf for 
sparkling performance and that 
costs £6.850 compared with 
£5.490 and £5,980 for the 1.3 and 
1.5 respectively. 

To close the image gap Alfa is 
now replacing them with more 
powerful versions. The new 1.3S 
costs £5.710 and the new I.5S 
costs £6.060. The smaller engine 
now boasts two twin choke 
carburettors instead of one, lifting 
output from 79 bhp to 86 bbp. It 


will cover a standing start quarter- 
mile in a very respectable 17.5 
seconds and top 107 mph. Thai 
makes it a match for many of 
today's 1.6 cars. 

A similar change to the 1.5 
engine lifts output io 95 bhp and a 
maximum speed of 109 mph. Its 
standing quarter time is under i 7 
seconds. 

Both the new models are 
identifiable by all-black front 
grilles, lower sills and rear spoilers 
and bumpers. The standard speci- 
fication includes tweed upholstery 
colour matched to the carpets, 
split folding rear seats, timed glass 
and electric front window. Be- 
tween them the two are expected 
to account for half the 33s sold 
this year. 

Stay British 

Staff at Land Rover's Solihull 
headquarters have been very 
moved by the hundreds of calls 
they have received from people 
protesting at government plans io 
sell the company to General 
Motors of America. But one call 
had them positively jumping for 
joy. 

As employees of a state con- 
trolled company. Land Rover 
execuli ves can hard ly take an 
openly critical stance against their 
masters plans to offer it as the 
cream on the cake if GM buys the 
heavily loss making Leyland truck 
business. So when Mr Kelvin van

campaign they had the outlet they 
were looking for. 

In the past few days Mr van

By Pete 1 Evans, Home Affairs Correspondent 

Metropolitan Police officers shouted that special weapons 
yesterday demonstrated their win be used if die crowd does 
riot control training in a not disperse. A similar warn- 
purpose-boOt high street com- ing is displayed on a banner. 




Baton round training at Hounslow b ehind riot shields. 


and threw wooden bricks as 
- five mm crouched behind 
shields like a rugby scrum, 
three men bolding them, two 
others blocked in behind. 

Snatch squads, two men m 
front holding round shields 
and two behind to make 
arrests, can be used in con- 
junction with Long-shield 
squads. 

The manoenvres would have- 
done credit to a squad of 
Roman soldiers. Police 
showed off the ait of cornering 
a violent man wielding a stick 
in a house and pressmg him to 
the floor under a canopy of 
shields. A line of shields 
across a street in “riot city” - 
as the complex has been 
nicknamed - parted to let 
police horses through to cadets 
throwing wooden bricks. 

For the first time the Metro- 
politan Police demonstrated 
the firing of baton rounds, 
done in a disciplined drilL 
Three warnings are first 


been brought there by men 
with short shields. There is a 
burst of smoke as the weapon 
fires and the four-inch baton, 
made of PVC, thuds into a pik 
of tyres. 

Police say gurnets were sent 
to Tottenham daring the dis- 
turbances but not used. Baton 
rounds had not been used 

ope rationally rm Hu. 

Police officers demonstrated 
use of a new way of bolding 
people under arrest with a 
wrist lock that leaves one hand 
free so tint a radio can he 
used. It replaces the old 
hammer lock and bar, which 
took two hands. It has so for 
been taught for i ft years. 

Commander Anthony 
Speed, who is responsible for 
public order work training, 
said that the tactics shown 
yesterday were strictly last I

From Mario Modiano 
Athens 

The Greek master of tbe 
Liberian supertanker Salem, 
which was scuttled off West 
Africa in 1980 to cover up the 
clandestine sale of itscareo of 
L80.000 tons of crude oil to 
South Africa, was sentenced to 
12 years' imprisonment by the 
Piraeus Appeal Court yester- 
day. 

Dimitris Georgoulis, aged 
49, told the tribunal be had 
deliberately sunk tbe ship on 
instructions from its owners' 
and with the full consent of 
the crew. He was defending 
himself against the principal 
charge of enriar^gmng h uman 
lives. 

The court found him guilty 
of causing a shipwreck, endan- 
gering lives, and complicity in 
the embezzlement of oil cargo 
worth $56 million (£40 mil- 
lion). 

Georgoulis’s lawyer said 
that his client bad been re- 
I'manded in custody, pending 
^appeal. 


Muhammad Hobaishi 
wears thick-framed, dark 
glasses, boasts as immense 
. paunch and rejoices in the 
title of Director of Informa- 
tion of the Foreign Ministry 
of the People's Democratic 
Republic of Yemen. This 
means drat he is a censor. 

“We will read your ramies 
only . to make certain the foots 
arc correct,” he announced to 
us in a thin, high-pitched 
voice; “If you look good, I 
look good -weal! look good.” 

There was, dearly, going to 
be a difference of approach 
between the few Western 
correspondents ' who had 
managed to obtain visas to 
Aden and foe party function- 
ary who welcomed us with 
such enthusiasm in the grub- 
by lobby of the Gold Mubxxr 
hotel noth its warm beer, rts 
foetid swimming too! and its 
great, dark squawking ravens. 

Every journey in every 
government minibus was ac- 
companied by Mr Hobarsfri 
and a band of iH-dressed and 
often armed party comrades 
whose .stile preoccupation 
was to denigrate in broken 
English ~ the South Yemeni 
president for whom they had 
obsequiously worked until 
his overthrow three weeks 
before. The group included 
two Yemeni journalists from 
the party organ October 14: 
Nagfo, a gaunt young TKTH 
with a green taadriiyct anH an ‘ 
AK47 rifle, and a balding - 
editorial -writer called Ali who 
thought more than he spoke - , 
and was thus often depressed, j 
There woe, needless to say, ; 
ways of avoiding Mr 
HobarahTs red pencil- But foe i 
limitations of journalism an- 1 
der Yemen's unique brand of 1 
“scientific socialism” were ev- j 
ident when Mr Hobaishi braz- < 
enly proclaimed that Western i 

journalists would be free to go » 

where they wished. “We wffl i 
show you everything,” he said i 
ominously. The true meaning i 
of this pledge only became i 
apparent when a Time maga- I 
zine photographer strapped a v 
[quick picture of six old and t 
dust-covered tanks at a desert v 
checkpoint u 

• “No photo,” screamed 6 
Nagib ami hurled himself to n 
the back of the mmibus to g 
seize foe offending film. Next 


ii day. foe photographer asked 
k Saleh M uhammad, foe 
e country’s putative dictator, 
t for special permission to take 
b- pictures of foe tanks. “Of 
y course,” this high party offi- 
c dal said with a gBMTOus wave 
s of h» hand. Mr Hobaishi hat* 
disagreed “ft is true that 
s Comrade -Sakm Saleh said 
s you could take the 

0 photographs,” he said. “But 

1 that was a political decision. It 
I needs a m9ttaxy deetshtt 'fo 

* obtam penaissiOT.” ; - 

> Beside the scum-encrusted 
i swimming pod. party philos- 
i ophy on press freedo m was 
I eventually determined by Mr 

> Hobaishi’s -seminal remark 
- that “We most have control in 
i order to fodfitate you." * 

Yet the real internal conflict 
of interests became apparent 
when Ali was instructed to 
take force corresp on dents to 
foe government hospital fo 
Aden where the journalists 
had arranged to meet a repre- 
sentative of foe Red Cross. Ali 
dutifully iook us to the hospi- 
tal but ordered us to stay on 
the bus wfaBe a party official 
altered the bmkhng to ask for 
foe location of foe Red Cross 
office. 

In vain was it explained to 
Afi that tlie reporters knew the 
exact locatkm of the office. 
Uselessly, it was pointed out 
that foe Red Goss official was 
i at that very moment waiting 
to meet us. For Ali understood 
; all this. His problem was 

• different He was aloyai party 
man: yet he was also intelli- 
gent. He constantly talked 
about liberty. - 

He face moved visibly as be 
struggled with foe c onflic t; 
between party instructions to 
keep us incommunicado and 
his own repeated declarations 
of our freedom to see whom 
we wished. If he was to permit 
us to leave the vehicle, be 
would have disobeyed his 
mentors. Yet to prevent us 
meeting foe Red Cross would 
indicate that the pom itself 
had foiled. Which is, indeed, 
what happened. We were 
tracked back to our grim hotel 
while Ali sat, nrnmflinf and 
miserable in. the front of foe 
bus, aware that in the end, 
nobody was going to “look
