Budget tax 
bonanza 
planned for 
charities 

By Richard Evans, Lobby Reporter 
Charities are set to receive a to charities who rely upon the 


multi-million pound Budget 
Day boost as a result of a 
radical change to the tax laws. 

Mr Nigel Lawson, Chancel- 
lor of the Exchequer is under- 
stood to have agreed in 
principle to introduce an 
Ameri can-style tax incentive 
scheme which will allow indi- 
viduals and companies who 
make donations to charities to 
set them against tax. 

The change, which has the 
enthusiastic support of the 
Prime Minister, is expected to 
lead to a massive increase in 
the annual income of chari- 
ties. now estimated to be 
about £10,000 million a year. 

With Mr Lawson's scope for 
lax cuts or increases in tax 
thresholds severely limited by 
the recent dramatic fell in oil 
prices, the charities package 
could form one of the most 
popular measures in his Bud- 
get. 

Apart from campaigning by 
Britain's charity network, Mr 
Lawson came under strong 
pressure to introduce the 
changes at the turn of the year 
from four senior ministerial 
colleagues who have a close 
interest in charities. 

Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, Mr Norman 
Fowler. Secretary of Slate for 
Social Services. Mr Timothy 
Raison. Minister for Overseas 
Development and Mr Rich- 
ard Luce, Minister for the 
Arts, are understood to have 
submitted a paper to the 
Treasury outlining the advan- 
tages. 

Mr Brian Rix. secretary 
general of Mencap, the charity - 
for the mentally handicapped, 
who has led the call for the tax 
changes, predicted last night 
that donations could increase 
by 30 per cent 

“If this proves to be true it 
would be a tremendous boost 


instant response of generous 
doners. I am delighted and 
trust that the Chancellor will 
not dash our hopes on March 
18” be said. 

Mr Tim Yeo, Conservative 
MP for Suffolk South and 
former director of the Spas tics 
Society, said:“I think without 
question that over the next 
four or five years a change of 
this sort could result in tens of 
millions of extra pounds being 
donated to' charities. 

“It would certainly open up 
the possibility of much higher 
income from companies and 
some increase in income from 
individuals. 

“ The real potential is 
shown by what happens in 
America where companies do- 
nate something like 20 limes 
the proportion of profits do- 
nated by British firms to 
charities.” 

Individuals and companies 
can currently donate cash to 
charities by means of cove- 
nants, which allows the recipi- 
ent organization to reclaim the 
tax originally paid by the 
donor. 

But the covenant system 
has been criticized as inflexi- 
ble with donors being legally 
bound to give cash for a 
minimum of four years and 
having to fill in fonnidible 
forms for the Inland Revenue. 

Mr Lawson's changes are 
expected to be especially help- 
ful to the arts world, where 
there has been continual con- 
flict over the level of govern- 
ment funding. It has been 
estimated within Whitehall 
that the changes could result 
in an extra £10 million to £30 
million a year being raised. 

Charities, which have no 
general VAT relief, are ex- 
empted from income tax.

Second leak at 
Sellafield plant 


By Pete - Davenport 


A second radioactive leak 
has been reported at the 
Sellafield nuclear reprocessing 
plant in Cumbria, only 13 
days after 1 1 workers were 
contaminated in a separate 
incident. 

British Nuclear Fuels said 
yesterday that radioactive wa- 
ter had leaked from a frac- 
tured drain pipe k-.'fing from 
the building on the site where 
spent nuclear fuel is cooled in 
water before reprocessing. 

Pan of the plant was cor- 
doned off and a number of 
staff were evacuated. A 
Sellafield spokesman said last 
night that the break in the 
drainpipe had been discov- 
ered at midday, and was later 
sealed. 

“It led to low active pond 
water being discharged into 
the purpose-built containment 
trench resulting in an increase 
in radioactivity in the imme- 
diate vicinity” he said. 

“The area was cordoned off 
and initial monitoring showed 
little potential hazard to the 
workforce in the vicinity” 


The spokesman said initial 
Jests showed that exposure to 
personnel was not serious, but 
further investigations were 
underway. “We consider this a 
minor incident”, he said. 

However, he could not say 
how much radioactive water 
had leaked or how many 
workers were evacuated. 

The incident had been re- 
ported to trade union officials, 
the local liaison committee 
and the Nudear Installation 
Inspectorate. 

It follows the recent escape 
of radioactive plutonium mist 
from a building in the com- 
plex. BNFL said only two or 
the 70 workers evacuated had 
been contaminated but it 
later admitted that 11 had 
been affected 

• A baby was bora prema- 
turely at Sellafield on Monday 
in the first birth at the nuclear 
plant. The mother, believed to 
be aged about 18 and unmar- 
ried worked as a secretary for 
a contracting firm.

Interest rate optimism 

By Sarah Hogg, Economics Editor 

January’s public-sector sur- 
plus brought the borrowing 
requirement for the first 10 
months of the financial year 
down to only £3.2 billion, less 
than half the full-year figure 
most recently forecast by the 
Chancellor. 

Although the public sector 
normally moves back into 
heavy borrowing at the end of 
the financial year, official 
forecasts now look comfort- 
ably within reach. 

Surprise surge, page 17 


Interest rate prospects 
brightened yesterday follow- 
ing official figures showing 
that an unexpectedly large 
surplus allowed the public 
sector to repay £4.5 billion of 
borrowing in January - 
Money market rates fell far 
enough to remove all pressure 
for an increase in bank base 
rales above the present 12ft 
per cent leveL The pound rose 
nearly a cent, despite a 
strengthening in the dollar, to 
close in London at $1.4290.

Rank makes £740m 
offer for Granada 


The takeover wave which 
has been sweeping the Stock 
Exchange looked set to spread 
to the nation's television 
screens yesterday as Granada, 
makers of Coronation Street 
and The Jewel in the Crown 
received an unwanted and 
unexpected £740 million bid 
from the Rank Organisation. 

If successful the bid would 
create a £1.8 billion group 
with interests from business 
machinery to Butlin's by way 
of hotels, motorway service 
stations, cinemas and the- 
atres, television rental and the 
Pinewood film studios, in 
addition to the Granada TV 
interests. 

Granada has the ITV fran- 
chise for tiie North-west of 
England, and its Manchester 
studios have been one of the 
main sources of ITV network 
programmes since the launch- 
ing of commercial television 
inthei950s. 


By CKff Felthain 

News of the bid provoked 
another spurt on the Stock 
Exchange yesterday, where the 
FT 30 Index rose 13.6 points 
to dose at a record of 1,234.3. 
Granada shares shot up 68p to 
308p. 

Sir Patrick Meaney, the 
chairman of Rank, said he bad 
first put forward the idea of a 
merger last August but Mr 
Alex Bernstein, Granada's

tive of275p. 


chairman, said then that he 
preferred to stay independent 
The proposal was repeated 
at a lunchtime meeting yester- 
day, when Granada again 
turned down the idea 
A few weeks ago Granada 
broke off merger discussions 
■with Ladbroke — whose chair- 
man, .Mr CVril Stem, yesier- 
"• 'V -day made .dear that was the 


end of the affair. 

Sir Patrick said: “As. far as 
we are concerned, that 
(Granada’s discussions with 
Ladbroke) indicated that they 
were obviously willing to con- 


sider a merger and so we have 
decided to go for them. We 
think a merger with us makes 
a great deal more sense than 
one with Ladbroke. However 
we don't fed that this bid is 
any any way hostile.’ 1 

The group has been study- 
ing a number of likely take- 
over targets for the past year, 
having only recently reorga- 
nized its own business after 
pressure from City institu- 
tions. 

Rank feels that Granada 
will provide an ideal fit, 
particularly in their joint oper- 
ations of more than 100 bingo 
and social dubs and motor- 
way service stations. But the 
main attraction for Rank is 
Granada’s nationwide chain 
of 650 television and video 
rental shops, which contribut- 
ed around 60 per cent of 
Granada's £64 million .profit 
total last year._ . 

Rank sees considerable po- 
tential for selling holidays 
through the shops. It sold two 
million holidays last year

Wapping 

violence 

attacked 

By Anthony Bevins 
Political Correspondent 
The Prime Minister yester- 
day condemned pickedine vio- 
lence’s! News International's 
Wapping works as disgraceful 
and arged Mr Neil funnock to 
join her in the attack. 

Bat the Labour leader re- 
plied daring the Commons 
questions: “In condemning the 
violence wherever it occurs, 
wQl the Prime Minister also 
acknowledge the contribution 
made to try to stop violence by 
leaders of Sogat and dm NGA 
and the way they have roandly 
condemned those who bring 
their onions and their activi- 
ties into disrepnte?” 

Mrs Thatcher recognized 
what Mr Kinnock had said, 
and added: “I am glad he 
totally condemns violence, I 
hope on each and every picket 
line or demonstration wherev- 
er it occurs, and I would be 
grateful if he would confirm 
that” Mr Kinnock did not 
respond. 

Earlier, the Prime Minister 
had been asked by Mr Jerry 
Hayes, Conservative MP for 
Harlow, whether she would 
condemn the violence at 
Wapping— where there have 
been 194 arrests since the 
dispute began— particularly 
the attacks on the police. 

He also asked her to per- 
suade the muon leaders to 
follow Mr Kinnock 's example

Loophole on parking fines 


Motorists may be able to 
claim back thousands of 
pounds in parking fines after 
being convicted under the 
wrong Act according to a legal 
expert yesterday. 

London's Metropolitan Po- 
lice had sent ont summonses 
under the 1974 Road Traffic 
Act for parking-offences. But 
the relevant parts were re- 
pealed by the Road Traffic 
Regulation Act on September 
26, 1984. It was under that Act 
that parking offences should 
be brought, the expert said. 
The aggrieved could seek to 


through the coarts. 

A London doctor yesterday 
won an 
Kpightsbridge 


appeal at 
Crown Coart 


By Richard Evans 

against conviction under the 
1974 Art. 

According to one estimate, 
many thousands of people 
could have been wrongly con- 
victed and fined during the 
year ending January 30. But 
since then the Metropolitan 
Police had bees amending 
sammonses so that they were 
under the Road Traffic Regu- 
lation Art 1984, the expert 
said. 

The court heard yesterday 
that Dr John Keet, a consul- 
tant physician in Wimpole 
Street, was convicted by Wells 
Street magistrates in Decem- 
ber for failing to comply with 
the statutory statement of 
ownership in relation to a 
parking ticket 


He appealed against convic- 
tion and was awarded legal 
costs yesterday after Mr John 
Reekers, prosecuting, offered 
no evidence. 

Mr Reekers told the hear- 
ing:” Dr Keet was summonsed 
and convicted under the wrong 
section. A conviction under the 
1974 Art without reference to 
the 1984 Art cannot stand.” 

Miss Renee Calder, defence 
coonset, told the hearing she 
tad pointed out the relevant 
sections of the- 1984 Art to the 
magistrates Dr Keet was con- 
victed by. 

Judge Gratis Raleigh said: 
“The point is not that the 
magistrates were in ignorance 
of the Act bat that the learned 
clerk should have told them.” 


Land Rover rivals 
get bid deadline 

By Philip Webster, Political Reporter 


Land Rover will be sold to 
General Motors along with the 
BL truck operation unless 
rivals can put together within 
two or three weeks bids which 
the Government and. the Ley- 
land board are convinced offer 
a better prospect for the 
companies’ future. 

Senior ministers disclosed 
the new deadline last night 
and underlined their firm 
belief that the General Motors 
deal, at an advanced stage and 
which ministers hope will be 
concluded within the next few 
wedcs, remains the best com- 
mercial bet. 

It was also revealed that 
General Motors bas always 
made it plain that Land Rover 
must form part of the deal As 
Tory MPs continued to voice 
discontent at the proposed US 
deal, ministers disclosed that 
in addition to Lonrho and 
Aveling Barfbrd, three other 
companies, two foreign and 
one British, have expressed an 
interest in Land Rover, and 
one other foreign company 
has expressed an interest in 
the track business. 

But no firm bids have been 
received. Although ministers 
doubted whether it would be 
feasible for the other compa- 
nies to meet the mid-March 
deadline they gave an assur- 
ance that senous proposals 
will be given a chance. 

Bui both for the Govern- 
ment and General Motors the 
situation could not be allowed 
to drift, ministers said. Gener- 


al Motors needed to find a 
solution for Bedford which 
was losing heavily, while the 
Government would face the 
prospect of putting in more 
money to sustain the business. 

Ministers are unhappy at 
the opposition of Tory MPS to 
the deal, but believe they can 
ride tiie storm. 

Mr John Taylor, Conserva- 
tive MP for Solihull yesterday 
led a delegation of Midlands 
councillors and union repre- 
sentatives to Mr Peter Morri- 
son, Minister of State for 
Industry, to press for a British 
solution for Land Rover. He 
said afterwards that they bad 
been “less than reassured”. 

The Prime Minister’s pref- 
erence for the American op- 
tion was again evident in the 
Commons yesterday. 

The Government s position 
among Midlands Tories was 
slightly eased when Mr Hal 
Miller, MP for Bromsgrove, 
backed the General Motors 
solution for Land Rover. Mr 
Miller, a vice chairman of the 
Conservative Party, said they 
had the resources and the 
markets to assure the compa- 
ny a successful future. 


Lloyd’s chief 

Mr Alan Lord, former lop 
executive with Dunlop, the

ed chief executive and deputy 
chairman of Lloyd’s insurance 
market in succession to Mr

Tests find 
cracks in 
BA jumbo 
nose ribs 

By Michael Horsnefl 

Emergency airworthiness 
tests by British Airways have 
revealed cracks in all six older 
Boeing 747s so fer examined. 

This was confirmed by the 
airline yesterday after the 
Civil Aviation Authority or- 
dered further checks. 

Fifteen of BA’s 30 747s are 
of the early 100 series, dating 
back to 1971; internal checks 
on the other nine will be 
completed next month. 

The GAA directive follows 
one to US carriers by the 
American Federal Aviation 
Authority. British Airways 
had already begun its tests. 

Despite the widespread dis- 
covery of cracks in the ribs of 
the nose section, the CAA says 
that- there _ is no reason to 
question 747s’ safety. 

’ . The CAA and the airline are 
anxious to quell fears in view 
of BA's impending privatiza- 
tion. Tbe Government does 
not welcome the embarrass- 
ment of current safety fears. 

Neither body could say how 

serious the defects were. But 
officials point out that they do 
not match the high concentra- 
tion in five Japan Air Lines 
short-range jumbos. 

Mr John Chaplin, CAA 
director of safety services, 
said:' "These aircraft are safe 
to fly, if they were not, we 
would have them on the 
ground.”

tors to check bolts on tbe main

Heffer warns Labour 
of ‘civil war’ 
over Liverpool purge 


By Philip Webster, Political Reporter 

A senior Labour left-winger success to the SDP-Ubcral Mulhearn, president of the 


spoke yesterday of civil war in 
the party if the national 
executive committee carries 
out a purge of the Liverpool 
Labour Partv and if there are 
moves to withdraw the whip 
from two MPs who support 
the Militant Tendency. 

Reports that the just-com- 
pleted inquiry into the Liver- 
pool party could bring its 
disbandment and the expul- 
sion of several Militant sup- 
porters have provoked anger 
on the left 

Yesterday Mr Eric Heffer, 
MP for Liverpool Walton, 
wrote in a letter to Labour's 
general secretary, Mr Lany 
Whmy: “A witch-hunt against 
Liverpool party members and 
some MPs will not satisfy the 
right-wing Press. What can 
happen is civil war within the 
party, and if that "occurs we 
shall be handing electoral 


Alliance." 

Some members of the cen- 
tre-right believe that the natit- 
rai follow-up to tough action 
over Liverpool would be the 
withdrawal of the Labour 
whip from Mr Dave Neilist, 
MP for Coventry South East, 
and Mr Terry Helds. MP for 
Liverpool Broadgreen. 

• The final list of names of 
Liverpool members to be 
recommended for expulsion 
will be drawn up at a meeting 
of the inquiry team today 
(Peter Davenport writes). 

The report will go to all 26 
members of the national exec- 
utive for consideration over 
the weekend in advance of the 
meeting next Wednesday 
when they will consider the 
recommendations for action. 

Mr Derek Hatton, deputy 
leader of Liveipool City 
Council and Mr Tony 


district party, are thought 
certain to be expelled. 

Some sources indicated yes- 
terday that any new constitu- 
tion for the Liverpool party 
would stipulate that it would 
be able to draw delegates only 
from wards and constituent 
cies. 

• Yesterday Mr Ray Gill the 
acting regional organizer for 
the party in the North west, 
confirmed that his office had 
received telephone complaints 
about alleged votin 
fries involving Mr 
They centred on a meeting 
of the Childwab ward on 
Monday at which Mr Hatton 
was elected chairman by a 
majority of one and. also by a 
majority of two, nominated 
for the chairmanship of the 
Broadgreen constituency. 

Mr Hatton said be had no 
comment to make.

Rethink decision, 
Argentines urged 


By Nicholas Ashford, diplomatic correspondent 

British MPs were last night in the Argentine capital before 
of a they set out. and that criticism 
increased when 


visiting Argentine Parliamen- 
tary delegation to reconsider 
their earlier decision to reject 
an invitation from the Gov- 
ernment to hold talks with Mr 
Timothy Eggar. a junior For- 
eign Office minister, later this 
week. 

The group's British hosts, 
the South Atlantic Council 
feared that if the Argentines 
persisted in their refusal to 
meet Mr Eggar, Parliamentary 
Under-Secretary of State at 
the Foreign Office, this would 
be seen as a snub in London 
and would jeopardize the 
improvement in British- Ar- 
gentinian relations which their 
visit to London this week had 
so far achieved. 

Mr Cyril Townsend, the MP 
for Bexleyheath. and chair- 
man of the South Atlantic 
Council which was set up to 
improve understanding be- 
tween the two former Falk- 
lands foes, said last night that 
the situation was very con- 
fused. 

He remained hopeful, how- 
ever, that the meeting, which 
he had initiated, would still go 
ahead on Friday. 

He said that domestic pres- 
sures in Buenos Aires were 
behind their rejection of the 
invitation to meet Mr Eggar. 

The delegation’s visit to 
Britain had aroused criticism 


had increased when it was 
learnt that they might meet a 
member of the British Gov- 
ernment 

The four. Senator Adolfo 
Gass. Senator Julio Amoedo, 
Senor Federico Storani and 
Senor Julio Bordon, are here 
on a goodwill visit to hold 
talks with British Parliamen- 
tarians. 

Yesterday the four held 
“friendly and constructive’' 
talks with a group of British 
MPs led by Sir Anthony 
Kershaw. 

Mr David Crouch. Conser- 
vative MP for Canterbury, 
said after the meeting that be 
detected indications of greater 
flexibility on the Argentine 
side. 

There were no sign* of any 
flexibility- from the Prime 
Minister, however, when she 
referred to the Falklands dur- 
ing Question Time. 

“I wish to make it absolute- 
ly dear that the sovereignty of 
the Falklands is not negotiable 
and that the wishes of the 
Falkland Islanders are and 
will remain paramount," she 
told a questioner. 

Earlier the Foreign Office 
had announced that Baroness 
Young, Minister of State at the 
Foreign Office, is to pay a six- 
day visit to the disputed 
islands, starting this Sunday. 


Perks for 
lawyers in 
commerce 


By Our Legal Affairs 
Correspondent 

The earnings of solicitors in 
commerce and industry far 
outstrip those of their col- 
leagues in private practice and 
are usually boosted with valu- 
able perquisites, according to 
a new survey by the manage- 
ment consultants Hay-MSL 

More than half the 377 
solicitors sampled earned 
more than £26,000, with a 
quarter earning more than 
£43,000, the survey showed. 
Perquisites are widespread, 
with nearly SO per cent of 
solicitors receiving a car, with 
an average price of £10,000. 

Among the senior job levels, 
the chieflegal advisers, nearly 
all solicitors, receive a car. 
About 85 per cent have the 
subscription to their profes- 
sional body paid. 

There is a close relationship 
between age and years of 
experience, and average sala- 
ries rise by almost £1,000 a 
year from the date of qualifi- 
cation, with solicitors aged 26 
(one year qualified) earning 
£14.300. rising steadily to 
£34.000 for solicitors in their 
late forties. 

The survey is published 
shortly after another, which 
showed that solicitors in pri- 
vate practice had earnings 
which were significantly lower 
than those of other profession- 
al people. 


Young workers on a Community 
Programme project (above) with a 
George m camion found during 
the unearthing of the seventeenth- 
century Amhurst Fort overlooking ' 
Chatham Harbour. 

The programme, praised by 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher on tele- 
vision on Monday as a “pretty 
good capital programme”, has so 
far given nearly half a million 


long-term unemployed jobs on 
community projects at a cost of 
£1^5bQlion (Patricia Clough 
writes). 

Although it cannot demonstrate 
it statistically, the Manpower 
Services Commission (MSC), 
which administers the pro- 
gramme, believes strongly that it 
improves people's chances of get- 
ting regular work. 


A survey carried out by the 
MSC of 2360 people who took 
part in the programme in 1983-84 
found that 25 per cent west 
straight into regular employment. 
Eight and a half months later 31 
per cent of them had jobs. 

The programme was launched 
in its present form in October 
1982

Taxing problem of the lower paid 


By Lawrence Lever 
The lower paid are paying 
more in lax and national 
insurance than when the Con- 
servative Government came 
to' power, according to the 
Institute of Fiscal Studies. 

Average gross weekly earn- 
ings for a male teacher at a 
secondary school in 1979, 
were £93.44. of which about 
28.53 per cent was deducted in 
income tax and national in- 
surance contributions. Last 
year, average earnings were 
£169.90, while the tax burden 
had risen to 32.19 per cent. 

Nurses are paying slightly 
less than 5 per cent more of 
earnings in tax and national 
insurance than in 1979, while 


secretaries and cleaners pay 
just over 4 per cent more. 

IFS estimates for 1986 put 
the average weekly earnings 
for a nurse at £130.31. with 
29.24 per cent going in tax and 
national insuranceJeaving 
£9221. 

In the last four budgets the 
Government reduced the tax 
burden by increases in the real 
level of tax allowances rather 
than reducing the basic rate, 
with a 30 per cent rise since 
1979. It was this budget which 
heralded a reduction in basic 
rates from 33 per cent 

However the institute says 
if the resources used to in- 
crease allowances had been 


used to cut the basic rate, there 
would be a rate of 26.5p. 

The problem with raising 
allowances is that this does 
not affect sufficient numbers 
of those most in need heads of 
families with children who 
find that an increase in 
pay leaves them worse of 
increasing tax and insurance 
contributions, while reducing 
state benefits. 

IFS says although about two 
million people would be re- 
moved from tax liability by a 
30 per cent increase in allow- 
ances, only 100.000 would 
come from this category. 

Cutting basic rates will not 
affect the numbers paying tax. 


but it does improve the posi- 
tion of those people who 
would be or would almost be 
financially better off on bene- 
fits. 

Nevertheless, the 7FS says if 
the Government was to spend 
£6 billion on tax cuts, by a 5 
per cent cur in basic rate, or a 
30 per cent increase in allow- 
ances .those earning less than 
£250 a week gross would 
benefit more from the allow- 
ance increase. 

The . advantage of raising 
allowances is that all basic rate 
tax payers will have the fame 
increase in net income, an 
increase proportionally the 
greatest benefit for those on 
lowest incomes. .

Leading specialists clashed 
again yesterday at the inquiry- 
in to the competence of Mrs 
Wendy Savage, the consultant 
obstetrician at the London 
Hospital who has been sus- 
pended since last ApriL 

Mr Gordon Bourne, the 
North East Thames Regional 
Health Authority's assessor in 
obstetrics, said he disagreed 
with the view of Mr John 
Dennis. Professor of Obstet- 
rics at Southampton Universi- 
ty. that in one of the cases 
being considered at the inqui- 
ry’ then? was in effect "no case 
to answer”. 

In the case, a girt aged 15 
was in labour for more than 18 
hours before a Caesarean de- 
livery. Mr Bourne said he 
found it hard to believe that in 
the circumstances Professor 
Dennis would have agreed 
that the labour should contin- 


ue. 


He agreed, however, that 
I he management of the case 
would not be considered by 
most doctors to indicate in- 
competence. 


Security clampdown 
on GCHQ computers 


By Bill Johnstone, Technology Correspondent 


The Government Commu- 
nications Headquarters 
(GCHQ) at Cheltenham, the 
subject of recent security 
leaks, has com m otioned ex- 
perts to ensure that govern- 
ment computers bolding 
classified information are spy- 
proof. 

The British computer spe- 
cialist , Logica, has been 
awarded a contract in partner- 
ship with Admiral Computing 
to test the security of sensitive 
government machines. 

GCHQ computers contain 
highly classified material gath- 
ered by its staff when monitor- 


ing foreign broadcasts. The 
materia] includes information 
on codes and deciphering 
techniques used by the British 
and other nations when trans- 
mining top security informa- 
tion. 


The Americans have been 
particularly concerned about 
the general level of security in 
Britain, largely because of 
recent leaks and subsequent 
prosecutions. The first task of 
the partnership, will be to test 
the security of the present 
computer systems used by 
sensitive government agen- 
cies. 


Three members of a multi- 
million pound banknote forg- 
ery ring, smashed by a James 
Bond-style undercover detec- 
tive,' were jailed yesterday. 

The men were arrested in an 
operation by a detective iden- 
tified only as Sergeant Henry. 
During the trial at Leicester 
Crown Court he was described 
as the "James Bond" of the 
regional crime sqnad. 

The syndicate planned to 
flood Britain with forged £50 
notes acknowledged to be 
“excellent" copies. 

Sgt Henry infiltrated the 
syndicate, posing as a crooked 
businessman, after first mak- 
ing contact at a lonely Berk- 
shire farmhouse. 

Sgt Henry said be received a 
death threat from one of the 
gang while be posed as a 
crowed businessman wanting 
to buy £250,000 worth of 
forged notes.

raised a doubt about the only 
witness to the killing of Adrian 
Carroll in Armagh City two

Couple fight Guernsey 
law In Strasbourg 


By Christopher Warman, Property Correspondent 


An English couple, who 
were prevented under a 
Guernsey housing law from 
living in their, own home on 
the island, took their case 
against the island authorities 
to the European Court of 
Human Rights in Strasbourg 
yesterday. 

Mr Gerald Gillow and his 
wife, Yvonne, claimed that 
the 1969 Housing Control 
Law. which stripped them of 
their residential status, contra- 
vened the European Conven- 
tion on Human Rights. 

They argued that the hous- 
ing legislation was a "surro- 
gate immigration measure" 
promulgated by connivance 
with the British Government 

The Gillows, now retired, 
moved to Guernsey in 1956. 
built their house and lived 
there until I960, when Mr 
Gillow took an overseas post 
with a United Nations agency. 

During their absence they 
rented the house to tenants, 
but when they returned in 1979 
they found they were disquali- 
fied from the right of residence 
under the housing law. 



Tbe Guernsey housing au- 
thorities found that the 
Gillows' links with the island 
were not sufficiently close and 
denied them a licence to 
occupy their house. 

The couple have the sup- 
port of the European Commis- 
sion of Human Rights, which 
concluded that the denial of 
the licence violated various 
articles in the convention that 
guarantee the Gillows' right to 
respect for their private and 
family life and of being enti- 
tled to the peaceful enjoyment 
of their possessions. 

For the United Kingdom 
Government, Mr 

DeV.G.Carey contended that 
housing control on the densely 
populated island was “vitally 
important" and that the 
Guernsey authorities were jus- 
tified in trying to stem the 
influx of newcomers. 

He described the Gillows* 
claim that the law was a 
subterfuge for immigration 
control and a "mere device to 
conceal anti-British policies" 
as highly tendentious; it 
formed part of their “crusade” 
against the island. 


£200m nuclear waste 
site planned for 1990s 


By Pearce Wright 
Science 


Editor 


A land-based nuclear waste 
site for low-level and interme- 
diate-level radioactive waste 
would cost more than 
£2Q0miltioa to build, the Cab- 
inet has been told. 

The site could be ready 
between 1992 and 1995. It 
would be used for 50 years and 
kept secure for another 300 
years to allow the most active 
materials to decay to a safe 
leveL 

Those specifications are 
contained in a submission lo 
the Cabinet for permission to 
conduct preliminary geologi- 
cal surveys in four places. 

The request has been made 
by the Department of the 
Environment on behalf of the 
Nuclear Industry Radioactive 
Waste Executive, Nirex, 
which is based at Harwell, 
Oxfordshire. Government 
consent is expected this 
month. 

Opponents, such as Friends 
of the Earth and the Town and 
Country Planning Associa- 
tion. expect an attempt lo 
bypass part of the planning 
process.

screens on Saturday night on 
the demonstrations outside 
Wapping.

majority were not thought to

Tbe Sunday Times, Tbe Sub 
and the News of the World. 

The newspapers have been 
distributed by road since the 
company moved to Wapping, 
but British RaQ is anxious to 
regain the contract, which 
represents about a third of its 
annual £27 rnfllkm newspaper 
distribution revenue. 

It says News International 
fas broken its contract and, 
"left ns with resources for 


disgraceful they should attack we have to pay ami from 

----- which we are getting no 

revenue". 

But the British Rail chair - 


the police in this way and we 
totally support tbe polk*." 

Outside of the Commons, 
Sir Bob Reid, the British Rail 
chairman, threatened legal ac- 
tion against tbe rail anions if 
they ordered their members to 
black News International pub- 
lications. 

He also warned railway 
workers that they would be 
dismissed if they rdused to 
handle copies of Tbe Times, 


man said he was sure the 
company had not ruled out a 
return to rad distribution in 
the long term. There would be 
farther discussions, depending 
on bow the Wapping dispute 
was resolved, but Brffish Ran 
would do nothing yet because 
it did not wish to bother a 
customer under stress. 

Asked what he would do if 


the contract was restored but 
the unions blacked the tides. 
Sir Bob replied: “We shall do 
exactly the same as last 
summer when people refused 
to go to work. We sacked 
them. We are ma paging this 
business, not the trade 
rations." 

Mr Arthur Britteujdeq, a 
director of News Internation- 
al yesterday denied that the 
company was considering 
printing its projected evening 
-newspaper. The Lmutou Past, 
in Bouverie Street or Gray's 
Inn Road, using old technol- 
ogy and some of its dismissed 
print workers. 

Mr Brittendoi said it was 
stiH hoped to produce the new 
paper . at Wapping. “But the 
launch has been put on die 
back-burner for the tme being 
whOe ire concentrate on pro- - 
during oar four existing

"We stfll intend to publish •

to allow Sogalr and NGA 
members to work at Wappmg*

There is no da 
dren at a Mid 
primary school contracting 
acquired immune deficiency 
syndrome (Aids) from a pupil 
with the virus, a local commu- 
nity physician said yesterday. 

Dr Alan Davies said the risk 
of the child with the virus 
developing AIDS was negligi- 
ble. with virtually no chance 
of its being passed on to other 
children. 

The unnamed pupil, who 
attends the Trelales Primary 
School at Lalcston. near. 
Bridgend, got the virus while 
receiving treatment for 
hacmophillia. 

A meeting of parents of 
pupils, to be addressed by 
Professor Al Bloom, of the 
haematology department at 
the University College of 
Medicine. Cardiff, an ac- 
knowledged international ex- 
pert. will be held next week to 
allay fears about the disease.

Base Rates are a bit like 
the weather, ie notoriously 
difficult to predict. 

Indeed in the last 10 years 
they have fluctuated over 
70 times at the last count. 

So if you're taking out 
a long term business loan, 
you don’t always want to be 
locked into a fixed rate of

The key to your problem 
is the Lloyds Bank Business

To start with, it offers 
you a choice of fixed or 
variable interest rates. 

And every 5 years, you 
will have the unique oppor- 
tunity to switch from a 
Base Rate linked loan to a 
fixed rate loan. Or vice versa. 

The loan can cover any 
amount from £2,000 to 
£500,000. . 

And any period of rime, 
up to 20 years if need be. You 
can make repayments either 
monthly or quarterly.

Labour furious at 
press briefing 


LEYLAND ROW 

In spite of strong Opposition 
representations. Mr John 
Biffin, Leader of the Commons, 
rejected rails for an immediate 
statement on further develop- 
ments in die negotiations over 
the proposed sale of British 
Ley land subsidiaries. Labour 
MPs demanded a statement 
after complaining that Mr Paul 
Cbannon, Secretary of State for 
Trade and Industry, had held a 
briefing for parliamentary lobby 
journalists. 

Mr Peter Shore, shadow lead- 
er of the House, following up 
earlier points of order, said the 
Opposition now understood 
from this briefing that .there 
were three more bidders in 
addition to those named on 
Monday for the Land Rover 
division. There was also the 
likelihood of a reference of the 
General Motors bid to the 
Monopolies Commission and it 
was understood that a bid 
deadline had been set for mid- 
March. 

This would give most compa- 
nies only a few weeks to prepare, 
while General Motors had bad 
nine months of proper negotia- 
tions. This was a matter for a 
statement to the House that 
night 

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark 
(Birmingham. SeUy Ode, Qsaid 
many MPs were determined to 
see a British solution. He urged 
the Opposition not to play "this 
mischievous and dangerous 
game" because if the message 
went out from the House that 
they were continually trying to 
drag tbe issue before MPs it 
would be dangerous. There were 
enough watchdogs in the House 
for British interests. 

Mr Terence Davis (Bir- 
mingham, Hodge Hill, Lab) said 
it had transpired that Mr 
Chan non had found time to 


come to Westminster to brief 
lobby journalists bus was now 
saying there were no significant 
developments on which to make 
a statement 

Mr Andrew FaaUs (Wariey 
East, Lab) said the matter was 
cruciaL It was essential that tbe 
issue should be chased with the 
figure responsible on tbe feeble 
Government front bench - Mr 
Chan non. 

Mr David Seed. Leader of the 
Liberal Party, said a statement 
then might be rushed and c r eate 
an atmosphere of uncertainty. IT 
there was not a statement later 
that night it would be best to 
have one on Wednesday or 
Thursday after the Cabinet bad 
taken a view on what tbe 
Government's industrial policy 
was towards the car and track 
inchtstry. 

The Speaker (Mr Bernard. 
WeatheriU) said be was not 
responsible for any of these 
matters. He could not force tbe 


;-3nsr? 


nothing extraordinary about a 
minister seeing lobby journal- 
&$, Those lobby journalists 
knew no mm than MPs. There 
was no question of policy 
commitment being carried tor- 
ward. It was a question of 
accepting the good faith of Mr 
rhannnn. While controversy 

could cany on, he did not accept 
the undermining of Mr 
Channon's good faith. 

The issue would arise on the 
adjournment bat there was no 
case for an immediate state- 
ment. 

Mr Store said tbe House was 
still dissatisfied. The adjourn- 
ment debate would be taken by a 
junior minister. He sought a 
statement on Wednesday. 

Mr Biffin said the matter was 
mutr constant examination. If 
the matter was to be conducted 
on the basis of dressing up a 
press lobby, then “we know 
what are tbe motives behind it” 

His final comments were 
drowned by loud Labour pro- 
tests. 

Mr Terence Davis (Bir- 
mingham, Hodge Hill, Lab) had 
ember said MPs resented the 
fact that further developments 
in the BL saga were being 
divulged by means of the 
continuing practice of leaks and 


Thatcher 
seeking a

LAND ROVER 


Land Rover and Freight Rover 
should have as big a market and 
as big a distribution network as 
possible. Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister 
said in the Commons when 
further questions were put to her 
about the proposed sale of

Defeat on propaganda 


HOUSE OF LORDS 

An all-party amendment 
restricting tbe effect of the Local 
.Government Bill in prohibiting 
local - authorities publishing 
party political propaganda, was 
harried by 147 votes to 158, 
majority against the Govern- 
ment nine, during the commit- 
tee stage in the House of Lords. 
I Lady David (Lab) moved tbe 
amendment removing the need 
for the test of reasonableness to 
be applied to tbe effect of the 
contentious materiaL 
; The local authority associ- 
ations, she said, were all against 
•the clause as it stood, believing 
It would make the day-to-day 
administration oflocal authon- 
•ties unworkable. 

If the clause remained as h 
was it would restrict the 
information the public received 
[about council policy and plans 
land would also mitigate against 
■the work of the voluntary 
[organizations. 


Lord Broxbonme <Q said tbe 
courts would have no difficulty 
in applying the test of 
reasonableness as it was done 
daily in the case of damage and 
negligence claims. The very 
words complained of he said, 
had been included in tbe 
Companies Act 1967 by tbe then 
Labour government and had 
worked without trouble for al- 
most two decades. 

Lord Denning, former Master 
of tbe Rolls, said he hoped the 
amendment would be refected 
because the tests required m the 
Bill were already applied by 
judges. Tbe judge bad to go by 
the effect of a libel on the 
ordinary people, not the inten- 
tion of tiie writer. Therefore the 
legal principle had already been 
decided. 

Lord Kilmarn o c k (SDP) said 
there would be difficulty in 
distinguishing between material 
that might be the subject of 
political controversy or reflect 
the view of the majority party, 
but issued in tbe interests of the. 
local authority. 


Lord Boyd- Ou p ester (C) said 
the practical effect of the 
amendment had to be consid- 
ered. 

The reality of the situation 
was that there would be a 
number of people using very 
considerable ingenuity to drive 

a hammer awf aritle through 

the Bill 

Lord Omeron of Lochbroom, 
Lord Advocate, said there was 
an abuse of power by a number 
oflocal authorities which had to 
be curbed It could not be right 
to take money from rate and 
taxpayers and use it against 
parties which those rate and 
tax pa ye r s might support 

The amendment, he said, 
would seriously undermine that 
part of the Bill. The Govern- 
ment believed acceptance of tbe 
amendment would remove any 
effective constraint on tbe use of 
pubbe funds to finance at public 
expense, less immediately ob- 
vious, but still insidious, party 
publicity which was becoming 
increasingly familiar in local 
government. 


between being British and being 
successful 

Is it not despair about the 
future or British industry (he 
asked) which makes her so keen 
to act as broker for American 
interests in the proposed sale of 
Land Rover? 

Mrs Thatcher said there 
should be very good jobs in 
companies here which had a 
great future and they should 
consider all the bids for BL 
which had been made. 

Mr Anthony Lloyd (Stretford. 
Lab) which major industrial 
power would consider selling off 
its last significant domestic car 
producer to a foreign power? 
Does she consider that h is part 
of popular capitalism that she 
should act as a broker for tbe 
United States? 

Mrs Thatcher: British Ley- 
land - Austin Rover is a mass car 
producer which has only 4 per 
cent of the European market 
compared with other mass car 
producers such as Renault. 
Volkswagen. Fiat, Ford and 
General Motors which have 
between 10 per cent and 12 per 
cent of the market, it therefore 
has difficulty in competing. 

That is the measure of the task 
and 2 hope we will succeed in 
getting more of the markeL If 
there is a British bid for Austin 
Rover we should look at it very 
carefitlly. ' 

Mr Antony Marlow (North- 
ampton North. C): will she 
hazard a guess as to why it is that 
Labour MPs and the odd 
Conservative MP seem to think 
there is something wrong with 
outward investment from this 
country because they say it 
destroys jobs in this country yet 
they also complain about in- 
ward investment from General 
Motors. Sikorsky or any other 
such company?. 

Mrs Thatcher: Yes. I note his 
cogent point that when we have 
inward investment in this coun- 
try. as we did for example with 
Nissan, half the Labour MPs 
wanted it to go to their 
consmencies. They forget all 
that now. 

Earlier Mr Michael 
Mead o w a ro f t (Leeds West L): 
said that what was happening in 
the British computer industry. 
Westland, and British Ley land 
were not isolated examples of 
the determined effort by the 
United States to determine what 
happened in British industry. 
The Government did not have 
the ability to counter this.

of articles which, taken together, 
be knew or believed were likdy 
to be used for the purpose of 
inhaling a controlled drug- 

Belief on tbe part of the seDo* 
that the articles would be used 
for inhaling a drug for medical 
purposes would be a defence to 
such a charge. 

He said tbe G ov e rn ment 
would am su e rifi* «we ur- 
gently. It was possible such a 
provision might be regarded as 
relevant to this Bill and be 
would raise Ibis with authorities 
in the House of Lords. If it did 
not prove practical to m a ke 
provision in this 821, the Gov- 
ernment would consider alter- 
native methods because the 
House as a whole shared the 
Government's concern that 
early action should betaken on 
tbe sale of these kits. 

The sale of cocaine kits in 
[ flnrfnn had given much offence 
to people. Indicating that the 
incitement provision in the 
Misuse of Drags Act or con- 
sumer legislation would not be 
effective m tins case, Mr MeQnr 
said the only effective action to 
the problem would be the 
creation of a new specific of- 
fence. 

One difficulty was that the 
component peris of a cocaine kit 
were everyday items sold for 
Wtfiwiam use, such as 
mirrors and razors. Tbe Gov- 
ernment warned to see that any 
form of new offence would not 
make it more difficult for heroin 
addicts to obtain syringes -and 
needles, because of the in- 

i -r a mo « 


titis brought about by re-use of 
such items and encourage ad- 
dicts to go to shooting galleries 
where needles were used by a 
number of addicts facilitating 
tbe spread of these infections. 

The Government woold waul 
to reflect and consult further 
with interested parties in the 
Commons before reaching a 
final view on die best form of 
any new provision.. 

Mr Robin Corbett, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman, said the La- 
bour party would be looking to 
the Government to take urgent 
and effective action over tbe 
apparently new menace of co- 
caine s niffing lots. Parents and 
; others were horrified over this 
development. 

Although the Bin was an 
important weapon in tackling 
drug trafficking it needed back- 
ing by the international commu- 
nity. He believed drug 
trafficking should be treated tbe 
same as acts of terrorism or 
piracy. Parliament would have 
no patience in the use of tbe 
'powers under this 801 were in 
anyway blasted because of lack 
of trainii^ of police officers. 

His one disappointment in 
this Bill was that the novel step 
of turning the seized assets back

the sale of County HaS, the 
headquarters of tbe Greater 
London Council, before the end

This would give plenty of 
time for a reasoned consid- 
eration on how best to use the

everyone concerned, partico- 
1 lariy Londoners, he said. At tbe 
moment it could be sold on 
April 1 when the GLC was , 
abolished. -

was marshland cm the South 
Bank in 1912 and it had been the 
administrative headquarters for

suggested it could be used for

London MPs.

tremely important, was also 
very much overdue. It would

(Montgomery, L) said there

sciences and make careful judge- 
ments as to whether they were 
prepared to countenance 
breaches of what they would 
sometimes regard as almost 
sanctified civil liberties prin- 
ciples in order to meet the needs 
of the public interest. He agreed 
with tbe minister when he spake 
of tbe need for international 
cooperation. Much winch was 
aimed at in this Bill would fafl

they were principally concerned, 
heroine and cocaine, were not

London, Manchester and Liver-

constraints, who still had some 
reservations about parts of tins

Apology sought for 
child brothel claim 


A Labour MP demanded in the 
Commons that Mr Geoffrey 
Dickens (Littieburough and 
Saddleworth, C) should go to the 
Holbrooke Estate in North 
bfington, unreseverdly with- 
draw fas attentions of the 
existence of child brothels in the 
area and make a public apology. 

Mr Dickens said be had been 
criticized on Monday by Mr 
Jeremy Corbya (Islington 
North, Lab) for a breach of the 
Commons co nv e n tion that 
members should not visit an- 
other constituency without 
notifying the MP. He had been a 
great upholder of tbe conven- 
tions and traditions ever since 
entering Parliament. 

Where foe safety of dukhen is 
involved (he added) there may 
be times when one cannot 
always pres erv e foe niceties of 
tbe workings of the House of 
Commons. 

Mr Cotibyn said Mr Dickens 
misled than. He has been 


critkaaed tor ir re sp onsibly pass- 
mg unfounded alkgafiosrs to tbe 
media which had caused a great 
deal of hardship and hurt to the 
people of the area. It was the 
irresponsible behaviour of Mr 
Dickens which had unset local 
residents and he shook! ^ risk the 

estate and atnkxtise. 

The Speaker (Mr Bernard 
Weatheriu) said their was a 
motion on foe order 

paper about this and that was 
the right way to deal with ft. 

Mr Keaneth Eas&aat (Man- 
chester, Blackley, Lab) raid it 
was not the first time this had 
happened. There was a similar 
instance in his coostitnency 
when a clergyman com plained 
on behalf of all his parismoneis 
about the conduct of Mr Dick- 
ens. 

Mr Dickens said he would 
tike to place on reoonf that 
arrests and prosecutions had 
resulted from information he 
had provided in the past.

Control of animal tests 


The Animals (Scientific Proce- 
dures) BilL which repeals the 
Craclty to Animals Act. 1876 
and makes new provision for 
the protection of animals used 
for experimental or other scien- 
tific purposes was given a 
second reading early today by 
>25 votes to 28. - Government 
majority. 97. 

Moving the second reading. 
Mr Douglas Had. Home Sec- 
retary. said the Bill balanced the 
dear duty to allow scientific 
rcscarach using animals to con- 
tinue and the equally important 
duty to prevent unnecessary 
suffering and the unnecessary 
use of animals in scientific 
procedures. 

There -were a great number of 
diseases and conditions' for 
which a solution, or improved 
treatment was still urgently 
needed such as heart disease, 
cancer and AIDS. Safety testing 
was also vital. Where beneficial 
drugs and vaccines had been 
developed they must be tested 
to ensure their safety. 

Most cosmetic substances 
were tested without the use of 
animals. But sometimes such - 
tests were still needed. The 
Government would soon be 
issuing guidelines on the use of 
the Driuae test of eye irritancy 
designed to maximise the use Of 
less severe procedures in eye 
testing: and the LDS0 test had 
been increasingly replaced by 
limit tests. The Government 
would continue to encourage 
these developments. 


Detailed conditions limiting 
the severity of procedures would 
be applied to each project. 

The Bill also made new 
provision for arrangements for 
the care of laboratory animals, 
and for the first time controlled 
the breeding and .’supply of 
animals used in scientific or 
experimental procedures, 

Mr Robin Corbett, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman on home a£ . 
fairs, said the BUI was 
inadcqutc. The machinery it 
planned to put in place, while 
being an improvement on the 
, L876 Cruelty to Animals ML 
' needed to be strengthened. 

His heart told him there 
should be a quick end to all 
experiments with live animals 
but his head told him that, was 
probably some way oft Many 
diseases were curable because of 
animal experiments and treat- 
ment was still needed for cancer, 
heart disease, asthma. AIDS and 
other diseases. Research on 
animals had also advanced vet- 
erinary practice. 

The powers of the Animal 
Procedures Committee should 
be increased. The committee 
should be able to initiate action, 
without the need for tbe ap- - 
proval of tbe Home Secretary if 
it -was going to have a property 
independent role, 
i Mrs Sally Oppeabeim 
(Gloucester. Q said she whole- 
heartedly welcomed the Bill 
which re p re s ented a fair and 
reasonable attempt to balance 
the public concern about the 


welfare of animals with the need 
-to continue achieving medical 
advance. This measure was long 
overdue. 

- Mr Midori Hancock (Ports- 
mouth South. SDP) said the BiU 
did not. go oeady as far as it 
should and must H created 
more red tape and encouraged 
the fear ' that licences and 
projects put to tbe department 
would be given an automatic 
robber stamp-. . . 

A Bill that was almost empty 
without any prohibitions in it 
and did not say “You cannot do 
this to an animal” must be open 
to all sorts - of abuses and 

unwelcom e pra ctices.' . ’ -- 

Mr’ Harry - " Cohen (Leyton. 
Lab) said many MPs had -set 
great store by the new. system of 
dual licensing; but how could 
anything with such a small 
inspectorate to implement it be 
more than a rubber stamp? How 
could anything where there- was 
an Animal Procedures Commit- 
tee of non-independent com- 
position be mate than a rubber 
stamp? 

.Sr Bernard Braiae (Castle 
Foini C) said there were mas- 
sive gaps in the BilL Tbe truth 
-was that it was too little and too 
late and ah acute, disappoint- 
ment. It would do very little to 
reassure the vast numbers of 
people wbq ' viewed animal 
experimentation,, especially 
when it was for -non-medical 
purposes, with disasle if not 
with disgust

Fees decis ion fought on two points 

Qc 


s arguments win 
judge’s leave for 
Bar Council’s action 


$ 


-_P? e Bar won leave yesicr- 

il ;r against the 

{-ora Chancellor, Lord 
Hailsham of St Maiylebone. 

it was an ex-pane appKca- 
HJ? by Robert Alexander, 
yC. chairman of the Bar 
Council, for leave to seek a 
review of the Lord 
Chancellor s decision to make 
regulations under section 39 
(1) of the Legal Aid Act.I974, 
as amended, to increase with 
effect from ] April. 1 986 by no 
nwe than 5 percent the level 
Of fees payable to barristers 
under the Legal Aid in Crimi- 
nal Proceedings (Costs) Regu- 
lations 1 982; as amended. 

The case was put by Mr 
Thomas Morrison, QC, for 
the Bar, before Lord Justice 
Watkins and Mr Justice Mao- 
pherson in the Queen's Bench 
Division Bench. 

Mr Morrison said: “We 
consider it appropriate in the 
circumstances of this re<a» that 
leave should be sought in open 
court because, were the appli- 
cation to be successful we 
would seek an indication from 
the Court that the substantive 
bearing should take place 
quickly. 

“The test for grant of leave 
is whether there is an arguable 
case for leave. The leave 
procedure is designed to weed 
out trivial or frivolous appli- 
cations. In those circum- 
stances 1 shall endeavour to be 
quite brief and not seek to 
confuse the matter any more 
than necessary. 

“The nub of this application 
is a letter from the Lord 
Chancellor delivered to the 
applicant on Februry 7. The 
applicant brings these pro- 
ceedings not in a representa- 
tive capacity, but by virtue of 
his position as Chairman of. 
the Bar and thus a representa- 
tive of the Bar Council. 

“The way in which we 
attack the decision of the Lord 
Chancellor as being unlawful 
rests on two propositions. 

“Firstly, that the Bar had a 
legitimate expectation of be- 
ing consulted and negotiated 
with before he reached his 
decision. 

“Secondly, that the decision 
was made without sncb con- 
sultation or negotiation. 


the express statement made 
before the Cooper and 
Lybrand report was commis- 
sioned, and after it was pub- 
lished, to support our. 
proposition that there was a 
legitimate expectation ofcon- 
' suiiation and negotiation.” 

Referring to Mr Alexander’s 
affidavit, Mr Morrison said it 
showed- the present fees for 
barristers on legal aid work fell 
far short of achieving the 
principle of fair remuneration 
for work done. 

“We submit that the evi- 
dence shows it was a common 
understanding between the 
Bar and the Lord Chancellor’s 
Department that os receipt of 
the report discussions and 
negotiations would take place 
with a view to their comple- . 
lion at . the end of January 
1986 so that the regulations 
could be made to take effect 
from 1 April 1986, so that 
they could be laid before 
Parliament after that negotia- 
tion process had been com- 
pleted. 

Embarrassment 
in Department 


“Our legitimate expectation 
was therefore denied with no 
consultation or negotiation. 

“No meeting took place and 
despite many attempts being 
made no meeting took place, 
as Your Lordship knows. 

“The only other contact that 
occurred before the end of 
January, apart from the corre- 
spondence, was a lunch be- 
tween someone from the Lord 
Chancellor’s Department and 
a partner of Cooper and 
Lybrand on January 29. 

“At that lunch was detected 
a sense of personal embarrass- 
ment on behalf of the Lord 
Chancellor's Department at 
the way it had gone. 

“The very next thing that 
happened was that Mr Alexan- 
der was notified by the Lord 
Chancellor's private secretary 
asking him to attend on 
February 7. 

“On February 7. the date 
before EGM of the Bar, he saw 
the Lord Chancellor and was 


handed the decision letter, 
i The. letter not merely disap- 
“The legitimate expectation pointed, but doubly 
arises in two ways. Firstly, tire f disturbed” Mr Morrison said, 
general principle of fcirness, ’ Justice ‘Watidns asked: 

which requires those who-are “Are you takmgjhe point that 


affected by exercises of statu- 
tory powers, in. the context of 
this particular case, should be 
properly consulted and negoti- 
ated with before that power is 
exercised. 

“Secondly, by virtue of past 
practice the Bar had a legiti- 
mate expectation of bong 
consulted and negotiated with 
by the Lord Chancellor's De- 
partment before the Lord 
Chancellor exercised his pow- 
er. 

Many barristers 
affected by ruling 

“Mr Alexander’s affidavit 
indicates approximately two 
or three thousand barristers, it 
is not possible to give precise 
figures, who practise exclu- 
sively or to a substantial 
extent at the criminal Bari 

“For the majority a great- 
part of the work is defence 
work and is remunerated by 
legal aid. 

“The power to make regula- 
tions must therefore be seen la 
affect the livelihood of a large 
number of practising barris- 
ters. 

“In making the regulations 
the Lord Chancellor is under a. - expect to continue, and repre- 


what the Lord Chancellor has 
done in practical terms is to 
say that in ' the public sector 
around S per cent is permissi- 
ble, and having done that he 
made no study in order to see 
whether or what rise was 
necessary to see what was lair 
remuneration 7“ 

Mr Morrison said that was 
partly how they put it “We 
say that a decision was 
reached and was taken with- 
out any consultation or nego- 
tiation with the Bar despite 
their expectation that such 
would take place”. 

. He said if he had to mention, 
law authorities he would refer 
to the House of Lords cases: 

(1) The Attorney-General of | 
Hong Kong v Shin, 1983 
.Appeal Cases, p629. 

(2) GCHQ case- involving 
the Council for Civil Service 
Unions, 1985 Appeal Coses, 
p374. 

(3) The Income Tax. Com- 
missi oners case, 1985 Appeal 
Cases, p835. 

..“Applying those principles 
we say there was a legitimate 
expectation, before the regula- 
tions were introduced, based 
.on the existence of practices 
which they could reasonably 


duty to have regard to ihe 
principles for allowing fair 
remuneration for work' actual- 
ly and reasonably done. 

“The Bar Council repre- 
sents, protects and promotes 
the interest of aD sections of 
the Bar, including those who 
practise in criminal courts, 
and it is this body with whom 
the Lord Chancellor’s depart- 
ment would negotiate. 

“It was essential in the 
interests of fairness that the 
Lord Chancellor should give 
proper consideration about 
the levels of fees, as the 1974 
Act did not allow for a free 
market. 

“In the special circum- 
stances of ibis case what the 
Lord Chancellor has the pow- 
er lo do will affect a large, 
proportion ofbarristers. There 
is implicit in it that he shall 
negotiate with the only body 
available, namely the Bar 
Council. 

“Their legitimate expecta- 
tion stems largely from past 
practices and assurances 
w hich from time to time have 

been given. ' 

“We rely on three acts and . 
matters,” Mr Morrison said. 

“firstly, the response by the' 
Government to the Benson 
Report. Yon will see from the 
papers that theBarhad recom- 
mended a fees advisory body, 
and the one reason it had was 
because the then existin g pro - 
cedures were unfair and creat- 
ed a strong sense of grievance. 

“Secondly, the feet that 
there were consultations and 
a degree of consultation both 
beforethe 1982 [Jmjttmns 
were made and before tne 
annual amending regufeuons. 

“Thirdly, the Bar rely upon 


senlations made to the Bar. 

“Our second ground that in 
making tbe decision he failed 
properly lo have regard to the 
principle of fair remuneration 
for work actually and reason- 
ably done. 

“We-say two things. Firstly 
. that he rejected the Cooper 
and Lybrand study on the 
basis that he remained to be 
convinced by it His letter is 
full of tbe fact that be re- 
mained to-be convinced. 

“He remained to be con- 
vinced because he deprived 
himself of the opportunity of j 
discussion and negotiation 
and relied upon matters lead- 
ing him to be unconvinced, 
which were in our submission, 
groundless, and would have 
been shown to be so had be 
entered into consultation. 

“The reason we . say they 
were groundless arises from a 
letter ' from Cooper - and 
‘Lybrand in February where it 
deals with each of the points 
made by the Lord Chancellor 
in bis decision letter; 

“It shows that on occasion 
there has been xnisunder- 
standing of the work they have 
done and that some of the 
points made by he Lord 
Chancellor are immaterial and 
wholly insignificant. 

“We saylhai in the light ofj 
the history and the assurances 
of negotiations it was wrong in 
principle for him to approach 
the matter on- the, was that 
.the omis was on the Bar . to I 
convince, him.: - 

“The -duty -on the Lord 
Chancellor when prescribing 
fees ' is to have regard to. the 
principles- of feri - remunera- 
tion and lo Approach it on a 
considered and rational basis. 


“What the test should be is 
no doubt a matter for .debate. 
Tbe point here in our submis- 
sion is not that the Lord 
Chancellor has chosen the 
wrong test. He has not adopt- 
ed any test of fairness at aR. 

“The Bar’s case is that there 
is no rational basis for the 
present level of remuneration 
or the present level plus 5 per 
cent, which the Lord Chancel- 
lor proposes to introduce. 

. “The present level of fees is 
merely the result of accumula- 
tive and ad hoc decisions 
taken over many years. 

“The Lord Chancellor’s De- 
partment recognises this was 
the time for introdneing the 
regulations simply as holding 
regulations. They were intro- 
duced in haste, as a result of 
pressure on the Lord 
Chancellor’s Department to 
effect greater control of crimi- 
nal legal aid,” Mr Morrison 
said. 

Here Lord Justice Watkins 
intervened and said: “I think 
we have heard enough, all we 
have to be satisfied about is 
that there is an arguable case 
and what you have told us 
seems to amount to that So 
you have your leave.” 


Marcos 
ally on 
murder 
charge 

Manila (AR) - A powerful 
political ally of President 
Marcos was charged yester- 
day with tbe murder in am- 
bush of seven opposition 
supporters on the eve of the 
1984 National Assembly elec- 
tions. 

The Ministry of Justice said 
that the charges against As- 
semblyman Arturo Padfi- 
cador and six men described as 
his bodyguards were filed in 
home province of Antique. 

Mr Pirificador is deputy 
leader of Mr Marcos's New 
Society Movement in the Na- 
tional Assembly and is also 
deputy highways minister. 

He has already denied any 
involvement in me ambush as 
well as in the murder last week 
of Mr Evelio Javier, his rival 
for Antique's Assembly seat in 
the 1984 election. 

Mr Javier, the campaign 
manager for Mrs Corazon 
Aqaino, was shot dead in San 
Jos*, tbe capital of Antique. 
Witnesses said that the gun- 
men arrived in a vehicle owned 
by Mr Pfedfieador. 

A soldier said to be finked to 
Mr Javier’s killing is among 
those charged with Mr 
Phdficador. 

• Uneasy peace: An noeasy 
peaee has descended over the 
contending presidential camps 



Students and workers protesting in Manila yesterday against US support for Mr Marcos 


as Mr Philip Habib, the IS 
envoy, shuttles round the capi- 
tal interviewing all parties 
(David Watts writes). 

Tbe vast popular support for 
Mrs Aquino and her campaign 
of boycotting firms, banks and 
products associated with Mr 
Marcos's friends satisfies her 
for the moment. 

She dearly believes that 
time is on her side and, judging 
from the confidence of the 
Aquino camp after their first 
meeting with Mr Habib, she 
thinks she has found sympa- 
thy there, too. 

But others, both on her staff 


and outside, are worried that 
she may have lost the initiative 
in tbe struggle to dislodge Mr 
Marcos. 

The President had regained 
much of his commanding style 
when be met the press at the 
weekend, leading many to 
think that tbe sheer exercise of 
power had forced Mis Aquino 
on the defensive. 

“Peaceful means are not the 
way of getting any dictator 
out,” said a left-wing lawyer 
who backs Mrs Aquino, but is 
becoming disillusioned with 
some of her methods. 

“Whether or not we are 


going to be successful depends 
on whether we are prepared to 
back up what we say with 
force.” 

As many of tbe President’s 
opponents know, Filipinos' po- 
litical anger is like a brush 
fire: it flares quickly and is just 
as soon forgotten. 

The roocero for many is that 
into this seeming vacuum will 
move tbe left and radical 
Christian groups and Social 
Democrats determined to 
avenge themselves for the 
murder of dvOkuis, of whom 
Mr Javier has become the 
symboL 


Turin goes 
to war 
against the 
Devil 

From Peter Nichols 
Rome 

Cardinal Ballesirero. the 
Archbishop of Turin, has 
shocked ihe city by appointing 
six specially trained priests to 
deal with the growing demand 
for exorcism from people who 
believe they are possessed by 
ihe Devil. 

The feet that the Devil is 
making himself felt in Italy's 
greatest industrial city, rather 
than in some old centre of 
medieval learning or a city 
traditionally tied to ideas of 
pleasure and licence, accounts 
for the sense of shock. Turin's 
character is rather puritanical 

The cardinal says that a real 
problem exists. He describes 
as incredible the number of 
people who ascribe their trou- 
bles to the Devil or who feel 
possessed. His new appoint- 
ments are drawn from priests 
with wider experience than 
mere exorcism. 

It would be a mistake, he 
sa\s. to regard them as priests 
armed simply with holy water. 
They are expert theologians, 
anthropologists and psycholo- 
gists 

The cardinal ascribes it all 
to the falling off of religious 
faith. When faith declines 
people look for substitutes, he 
says.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 19 1986 


Troops moved 
to shanty town 
as Pretoria 
admits 19 dead 


From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 


Troops were deployed in the 
black suburb of Alexandra, on 
■the nonhem outskirts or Jo- 
hannesburg yesterday as vio- 
lence continued for the fourth 
day amid wildly conflicting 
estimates of casualties. 

In parliament Mr Adriaan 
Vlok. the deputy minister of 
law and order, 'said that 19 
people had been killed and 37 
wounded since Saturday, 
when two funerals turned to 
protest rallies. 

Mr Vlok said 16 were shot 
dead by police, two burned to 
death and a black policeman 
hacked to death by rioters. 
Police in Pretoria had previ- 
ously refused to confirm more 
than 10 deaths. 

According to Mr Vlok. 
among the wounded 27 were 
shot by police: five were hurt 
by rioters, one being shot and 
four hit by stones: and five 
policemen were burned in 
petrol bomb attacks. 

Since Saturday, he said. 130 
separate incidents of violence 
had been recorded. 

Meanwhile Dr Beyers 
Naude. general secretary of 
the South African Council of 
Churches, who visited Alexan- 
dra on Monday with a delega- 
tion of churchmen, spoke of 
“reports of approximately 80 
being killed** and several hun- 
dred injured. 

Heavily armed troops and 
police guarded every exit and 


entrance lo the grim, dustv 
shanty scillemctu. which, uti 
like most black townships, lies 
alongside well-to-do while res- 
idential suburbs. 

Armoured personnel carri- 
ers constantly patrolled the 
peri meter roads and all televi- 
sion crews and journalists 
were barred. Mr Michael 
Buerk and Mr Graham Leach. 
BBC reporters, were alleged ly 
detained by police. 

Earlier, police slopped a 
march by an estimated crowd 
of some 30.000 Alexandra 
residents to a police station in 
the neighbouring white suburb 
of Wynbcog where, according 
to local priests, they intended 
to demand the release of the 
bodies of those killed. 

Some of the injured have 
been treated in emergency 
civil defence clinics set up on 
the outskirts of the settlement. 

In the apartheid scheme of 
things. Alexandra is an anach- 
ronism - it is the only black 
suburb left near the while 
residential areas of Johannes- 
burg. its being black dates 
back to the beginning of the 
century , and it is one of the 
lew places where blacks still 
have freehold nghts. 

Similar areas, notably 
Sophiatown in south-western 
Johannesburg, were razed in 
the 1950s and their inhabit- 
ants moved to Soweto. 10 
miles south-west of the ciiv. 


Duke sees conservation success 




From Michael Hamlyn 
Chitwan, Nepal 

The Duke of Edinburgh, on 
the back of an elephant called 
Chandra! Kali — roughly 
“nimble lady" — was offered 
the chance of pulling the 
trigger of the Palmer capture 
gun loaded with a tranquilliz- 
ing dart. “No thank you" he 
said, .“you do it." 

His elephant and 26 others 
formed a circle around a 
profoundly nervous four-ton 
male rhinoceros, later chris- 
tened Philip, while (he beast 
was shot in the haimch. It took 
ten minutes for the drug, 
known as M99, to work, ac s? 
the animal finally lay on its 
side and slept 

A dozen game wardens 
scrambled over the slumbering 
beast, measured it and 
checked it, and fiutened on ita 
bleeping radio collar so that it 
could be tracked in future as 
part of a big conservation 
project in the area. 

The last time Prince Philip 
was in this park (now called 
the Royal Chitwan National 
Park, hot then, in 1961, more 
simply known as the Royal 
Game Reserve) be also de- 
clined to shoot a rhino. He had 
a painful sore on his finger. 

The Queen, on the first fnD 
day of her state visit to Nepal, 
stayed back in Kathmandu, 
the capital, and had a quiet 
day in a royal lodge belonging 
to Nepal's King Btreodra. 
“She probably spent the day 
reading Vogue”, suggested one 
British diplomat The reason 
was that she had arrived in the 
country' just in time for De- 
mocracy Day. a major festival 
in the calendar of the monar- 
chy here. The King and Queen 
of Nepal were accordingly 
busy elsewhere. 

Prince Philip, however, took 
flight in a Super Puma 



end of the .wont, more pro- 
nounced in the male, which is 
nsed locally as a medicine. 

The Duke himself saw al- 
most 400 crocodiles, raised 
from eggs by -the park wi- 
dens. As many as 222 Adairs 
have already been released 
back into the rivers. 

The park is also home » 
some 75 Royal Bengal tigers, 
but thev spent yesterday lying 
. low and did hot show them- 
selves. 

But the rhinos were fee test 
of the spectacle. Three of them 
had been spotted by the park's 
chief game warden on the 
banks of an ox-bow lake, 
munching placidly among the 
reedy grass. 

“They are not very shy - 
cr e atures, but they are not 
particularly dangerous either. 
They are rather short-sighted 
herbivores", a game warden 
explained- “They like a quiet 
life. Even their skin, which 
looks so tough and armour- 
plated, is in fact quite soft." 

The Duke, who was wearing 
bis hat as President of the 
W orld Wildlife Fund for the 
occasion, was not particularly 
happy to find the press arriv- 
ing at Chitwan Park. "Good 
morning, sir", said a photogra- 
pher as he arrived. “It was", 
said the Duke. looking grim.

Coup trial

get bail 


Bangkok (AP) — After two

The- European Court of 
Justice yesterday upheld- a 
British ban on sales of oil to 
Israel, and rated that the ban 
was not illegal under the terms 
of a European Community 
Agreement with IsraeL 

The Luxembourg court’s 
judgement is crucial ton five- 
year legal battle sparked off 
when the British petroleum 
and oil traders Sun (Ml Inter- 
national refused to supply 
North Sea crude to a Swiss- 
based company, Balk Oil, with 
a secret contract for delivery to 
IsraeL 

The British ban, which has 
never been written into United 
Kingdom law, has been m 
force since 2979. The Labour 
Government asked oil compa- 
nies to comply with a policy 
statement specifically worded 
to exclude Israel and South 
Africa without mentioning ei- 
ther country by namp . . 

When Sun learnt that the 
destination of tire shipment 
from Sallom Voe was farad, 
BP and San refused to load tire 
ofl on board Ship, because 
Bp's contract with Sun said 
the oil could be delivered to 
any country, provided this was 


“in Foe with United Kingdom 

Bulk took its dalra against 
Sun to arbitration. Bof tite 
arbitrator was unsympathetic, 
and awarded San damages d 
$12 minion instead, because 
Bulk had been hi breach of its 
contract to supply tire ofl to a 
country acceptable to theBrif- 
ish Government 

Bat when Bulk took the case 
to court in Britain, new ques- 
tions were raised. The Hfe* 
Court turned to Lsxemboog 
forguidance. 

The European Court how- 
ever, serais to have dispelled 
any uncertainty by saying that 
toe EEC-Israel agreement 
does not: prevent Britain from 
restricting exports to IsraeL 
even if it cannot obstruct 
imports. 

But Britain has been rapped 
tightly over the knuckles fir 
not informing ihe EECao- 
thorities in Brussels and its .. 
EEC partners of its new poficy 
before introducing the ten n 
1979. .That was . against EEC 
rules, the court said yesterday, 
but it did not constitute, nay 
infringement of BnlKY rights 
which had to be protectedlff 
British courts.

S inking of the Mikhail Lermontov 




Master questioned as 
criticism mounts of 
liner safety standards 






From Rkhard Long, Wellington 


Captain Vladislav 
Vorobyev, master of the ill- 
fated Russian liner Mikhail 
Lermontov, which sank off 
New Zealand's South Island 
on Sunday night, was ques- 
tioned for five and half hours 
at the beginning of an official 
inquiry here yesterday. 

The leader of the inquiry. 
Captain Steve Ponsford, said 
after the dosed session that, 
questioning of Captain 
Vorobyev would continue to- 
day as the inquiry required log 
books, which were not pro- 
duced at yesterday’s hearing. 

The inquiry would also 
question Captain Don 
Jamison, the New Zealand 
pilot who was on board the 
liner. 

Captain Vorobyov re- 
mained out of contact at the 
Soviet Embassy, where a 
spokesman said he would not 
be commenting for legal rea- 
sons. 

Captain Jamison was also 
not available, but Mr Bnine 
Dalliessi, chairman of the 
Mari borough Harbour Board, 
the pilot's employer, said the 
liner was outside the board's 
designated area of responsibil- 
ity when it struck rocks. 

Local fishermen and the 


Royal New Zealand Navy's, 
hydrographer, Commander 
Ken Robertson, challenged 
the Soviet captain's claims 
that rocks in the area were not 
shown on survey charts. 

The area was marked on 
charts as being less than 10 
-metres (30ft) deep, was shaded 
in blue and surrounded by a 
dotted line, which was a clear 
warning not to go anywhere 
near it. Commander Robert- 
son said. 

The Mikhail Lermontov 
sank after passing inside a 
beacon, close to the Cape 
Jackson headland, and strik- 
ing rocks which divers said 
yesterday had torn a 30ft gash 
along the keel, up to lOftwide 
in parts. 

Fishermen and tourist 
launch operators in the scenic 
Marlborough Sound said they 
took small craft through the 
passage, between the beacon 
and headland, but would ex- 
pect all larger vessels, includ- 
ing coastal ships, to go further 
out to sea. 

Lieutenant Peter Batcheier, 
commander of the Royal New 
Zealand Navy patrol boat 
Taupo, which is patrolling the 
wreck site, said some of the 
ship's lifeboats were so rotten 


Moscow joins in 
with own inquiry 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The Soviet authorities have 
announced the setting up of a 
special commission to investi- 
gate the causes of the sinking 
of the Mikhail Lermontov. 

The announcement of the 
official inquiry was made here 
by Mr Timolfey Guzhenko, 
the maritime fleet minister. 

“The cause of the accident 
and the ship's loss will be 
determined by a specially 
appointed commission," be 
told Izvestia. 

The official newspaper said 
that the disaster, in which 
more than 700 passengers and 
crew were rescued and only 
one crewman was believed to 
have been drowned, was the 
first of its kind to happen to a 
Soviet ship “for many years”. 

Although details of the com- 
position of the Soviet inquiry 
were not dear, Pravda report- 
ed that officials from Moscow 
would be flying out to join the 
investigation already under 
way in New Zealand. 

After a complete news 
blackout lasting some 24 
hours in which nothing about 
the sinking was reported by 
the state-controlled media, 
subsequent reports published 
here have given the impres- 
sion that map defidencies and 
human error by the New 

Forbidden 
City is 
wearing out 

Peking (Reuter) — The For- 
bidden City b Peking, China's 
former imperial palace, is 
falling into disrepair and suf- 
fering wear and tear from 
millions of visitors, according 
to the Economic Daily. 

It said that £16 million had 
been spent on renovating the 
huge complex of buildings 
since the Communists took 
power in 1949. 

The number of visitors to 
the Forbidden City has risen 
by 10 per cent annually over 
the past few years. In 1985. it 
attracted almost II million 
people. 

The “golden bricks" b the 
main halls, whose manufactur- 
ing technique is a mystery, 
have been worn down by 2cm. 


Old comrades back in 
action to fight famine 

From Oar Correspondent, Sydney 


As pilots with the Royal 
Australian Air Force. Bob 
Hayward and his mates flew 
relief missions in Vietnam and 
New Guinea. Now they want to 
do it again — only b Africa, 
and for free. 

Captab Hayward, a com- 
mercial pilot, is part of a 
venture involving 30 former 
comrades-in-arms of the 
RAAF 36 Squadron who have 
formed themselves into a con- 
sortium of volunteers. Their 
offer is to fly, crew and 
maintain one of their old 
aircraft which was donated b 
December by the Canberra 
Government for famine relief 

operations b Africa. 

“You could say it is partly 
for the excitement but there's 
more to it than that It's a 
chance to see beneficial results 
from your efforts. The whole 
thine, the Gddof business, has 
really captured the Australian 
imagination." Captab Hay- 
ward says. 

More th»n 80 volunteers 
bom the aviation worfd have 
come forward to offer their 
skills. The former members of 
36 Squadron form the logical 
nucleus for a voluntary ae * 
group to fly an ex-RAF Henm- 
C130 donated by Australia. 


that passengers went through 
them with their feeL Many of 
the rubber inflatable life-rafts 
would not open, lights on 
lifejackets did not work and 
rescue whistles were like 
“toys" 

There were no English lan- 
guage instructions on any of 
the equipment. Lieutenant 
Batcheier said. “I picked up an 
emergency flare and I did not 
have a clue how to use it" 

He said many lives would 
have been lost through such 
faulty equipment if the liner 
had gone down at sea. On 
Sunday night all but one of the 
740 passengers and crew were 
picked up. 

One Soviet seaman is 
thought to have gone down 
with the ship. Six passengers- 
are still- in Wellington- Hospi- 
tal with minor injuries. 

Passengers arriving in Wel- 
lington after the rescue, many 
of them lightly clothed, com- 
plained that they were given 
no information about the state 
of the ship, even after it began 
drifting without power and 
developed a list. They could 
not reach their cabins because 
they were locked off

Interviewed by telephone 
by Soviet television. Captain 
Vladislav Vorobyev, the mas- 
ter of the 20,352 ton liner - 
who had earlier refused to talk 
to reporters in Wellington — 
claimed that the New Zealand 
pilot had tried to lead the 
Mikhail Lermontov on a safe 
course, but that it had hit 
rocks which had not been 
shown on the maps. 

• “The ship can definitely be 
recovered." he added. 

Reports about the tragedy 
in the official Soviet press 
have emphasized the bravery, 
coolness and efficiency with 
which Soviet crewmen carried 
out the evacuation of the 
crippled liner. 

in recent weeks, there has 
been a growing debate inside 
the Communist Party about 
the reporting of accidents and 
natural disasters by the Soviet 
media. 

Encouraged by the new 
campaign of “openness” 
launched by Mr Gorbachov, 
officials have attacked the 
official press for concentrating 
too much on disasters in the 
West while giving minimal 1 
coverage to those within the 
USSR.

The new BBC ihicrocomputer 
series will be seen in aHareas. 


The BBC Master Series is a continuation 
and development of the highly popular BBC 
Micro. As such, the series retains all of the 
BBC Micros traditional virtues including 
BBC BASIC and a superior choice of software 
and peripherals. 

Though never before has one micro- 
computer encompassed such a wide- range ’ 
of applications or offered so much potential. 

THE HOME. 

BBC Micros have gained a reputation as 
powerful, versatile home computers. 

The Master 128 will prove an even more 
useful addition to the household. 

Your child is probably already familiar 
with it from school. In which case, our 
educational programs will ensure that learning 
continues at home. 

By using a Teletext adaptor, up-to-the- 
minute information can be called up instantly. 
And via a Modem, you can control all the 
money in your bank account, paying bills 
and standing orders from the comfort of 
your own home. 

\ou can even write and send letters on 
screen by Electronic Mail. 

Yet despite these advances, the price 
remains the same at £499 inc. VAT. 

To speed up other tasks, there is the 
Master TURBO. For an extra £125 inc. VAT, 
it improves the Master 128s benchmark 
from 92 seconds to a cord-breaking 
4.67seconds using^j^HHkBBC BASIC.

As an upgrade of the 128, the Master 
512 gives higher levels of education access 
to MS-DOS compatible applications. For-

The volunteers include pi- 
lots, flight mechanics and, no ! 
less important, toadmastera. 
Some, like Hayward who flew 
in Cambodia for World Vision 
in the aftermath of the Pol Pot 
holocaust, have previous expe- 
rience of disaster relief work. 

The story started with the 
request last year by Action Aid 
Australia to Canberra for 
seven mothballed Hercules. 
Initially there was no response 
but when Bob Geldot the 
Band Aid organizer, visited 
Australia in October he agreed 
to be associated with the 

initiative and made a personal 
request to Mr Bob Hawke, the 
Prime Minister. As a result, 
Mr Hawke announced on 
television that two Hercules 
would be refurbished ami 
made available. 

The volunteers point out 
that, because they would be 
taking do pay and operating in 
rotation while on leave, their 
service would be much cheap- 
er. “This is an aircraft which 
belongs to the Australian peo- 
ple. It is part of an Australian 
response to a crisis. There is 
no way there should be any 
profit element," Captain Hay- 
ward says. 


New features on the Master 128 make it 
particularly useful in the schools area. 

The word processing package makes it 
ideal for creative writing.

Not only does this allow you to write 
documents easily, but also to insert charts 
and graphs into them. Thereby improving 
your business presentations.

THE LABORATORY. 

As a simple upgrade to the Master 128. 
the Master Sc. provides a powerful scientific 
computer for under £1,500. A tenth of the 
price of its nearest mainframe equivalent. 

The Master Sc. forms a natural and com- 
patible link with the first in the extremely 
powerful Acorn Cambridge Work Station 
range. It uses all the important scientific 
languages - ISO PASCAL, FORTR AN 77,Cand

For anyone who is teaching languages, 
the Master Sc. is a particular asset. You can

Troubled times for US drugs giant 

Deaths end capsule sales 

tW RnmcuHAl. t A 


Brunswick, New Jet- 
sey (AP) — Johnson & John- 
son has decided no longer 
produce over-the-counter 
medicines in capsules, but 
whoever murdered a woman 
with a poisoned painkiller has 
not beaten the giant company, 
us chairman says. 

The decision to stop pro- 
duction came nine days after a 
New York woman was killed 

by cyanide-contaminated 

Tylenol capsules and 3'6 years 
after seven people in the 
Chicago area suffered the 
same fate. 


*We fought our way back 
Chicago tragedy ... 


from the 

thanks to the fairness and 
good judgement of the Ameri- 
can consumer.” the chairman, 
Mr James Burke, told a press 
conference. 


-We will do It again this 
time. What we‘ve done is say; 
‘You’re not going to defeat 
us*. 

Mr Burke urged users of 
Tylenol capsules to switch to 
coated, oval tablets known as 
“caplets.”' and said that John- 
son & Johnson will replace 
free of charge any capsules 
now in homes or stores. 

The US drug industry react- 
ed cautiously to the announce- 
ment and the Food and Drug 
Administration said it would 
be premature to call for an 
industry-wide ban on capsule 
medicines. 

•Texas victim: Police in the 
town of Tyler, Texas, are 
investigating whether a man 
diagnosed as suffering from 
cyanide poisoning two weeks 


ago ingested the chemical 
from Tylenol capsules he took 
shortly before he coilapsed 
{DPI reports). 

The 41-year-old victim sur- 
vived the poisoning that oc- 
curred four days before the 
New York woman died from 
taking cyanide-laced Extra- 
Sirengih Tylenol capsules. 

Police in Tyler. 100 miles 
east of Dallas, said they 
delayed disclosing the inci- 
dent. which had occurred on 
February 4. because they did 
not want to alarm residents. 

They also refused to pin- 
point the poisoned Tylenol as 
the cause of the man’s illness, 
even though he look four 
capsules of the painkiller the 
day he collapsed. 


-At this stage of the investi- 
gation. we don't know how or 
when or even if the cyanide 
was put into the capsules.” a 
police officer said. 

The victim, who worked for 
the Mental Retardation Cen- 
tre of East Texas, a state social 
service organization, took 
four capsules at his office. 
Shortly after swallowing the 
Iasi two he dropped to the 
floor and went into convul- 
sions. Hospital tests showed 
he had ingested some form of 
cyanide. 

Dr. Michael Welch, who 
treated the patient at the 
hospital, said that after cya- 
nide was found in the patient’s 
blood, he told doctors he had 
taken Tylenol shortly before 
collapsing. 


Dynasty fights maid for will fortune 


From Michael Brayoo 
Washington 

One of America's most 
bizarre challenges to a multi- 
millionaire’s wili began in a 
New York court yesterday, as 
six descendants of the John- 
son & Johnson pharmaceuti- 
cals dynasty tried to wrest the 
family fortune from their 
father's former Polish cham- 
bermaid. 

Yesterday the jury was be- 
ing selected in the Manhattan 
surrogate court for a case 
which is expected to last 
months if not years. 

The case is the stuff of 
which American soap operas 
are made. Mr J Seward John- 
son. son of the founder of the 


giant company, died in 19S3 
at the age of 87. leaving 
virtually his entire estate, 
valued at between S400 mil- 
lion and. Si billion (£286 
million to£7l4 million) to his 
third wife Basis, whom he 
married when he was 76 and 
she was 34. 

Between his marriage and 
his death his will was revised 
22 limes with the benefits to 
Mrs Johnson growing inexora- 
bly until she was one of the 
richest women in the world. 

The former Basia Piasecka 
arrived in America aged 31 in 
1968. after studying art at the 
Vatican. With only $100 in 
her pocket and speaking no 
English she took a job as an 
upstairs chambermaid, serv- 


ing tea to Mr Johnson and his 
second wife Esther. 

Within one year of 
herarrival the Johnson mar- 
riage was destroyed. They 
were divorced on November 
3. 1971. and eight days lain 
Seward married Basia. 

One day after the wedding 
he changed his will, giving her 
$250,000. some company- 
shares and income from a $10 
million stockholding. 

In his subsequent wills, 
which the family claimed were 
obtained from a sick old man 
by fraud, duress, coercion and 
undue influence. Mr Johnson 
left nothing to the Harbour. 
Branch Oceanography insti- 
tute in Florida, which he 
founded, and which has joined 


lhc family in disputing the 
will. 

The family claims that as 
Mr Johnson grew- old and sick 
with cancer his third wife 
virtually imprisoned him in 
their California home, dis- 
missing all English-speaking 
staff and replacing them with 
Poles. They say that the final 
draft of his will on April 14. 
1983. Five weeks before his 
death, was made when he was 
so confused he could barely 
recognize anyone. 

One daughter. Mrs Mary 
Lee Richards, said in couri 
papers filed Iasi year that 
Basia had deliberately pre- 
vented him leaving money to 
the Oceanography institute, 
his lifelong hobby.'

Ozal wants Turkey in 
EEC within 10 years 

By Nicholas Ashford, Diplomatic Correspondent 

Mr Turgot Ozal, the Turk- ed to i revival of Turkey's 
bh Prime Minister, ootfined 
the case for eventual Turkish 
membership of the European 
Community when he met Mrs 
Thatcher at Downing Street 
yesterday, Che second day of 
his four-day official visit to 
Britain. 

Encouraged by Monday's 
decision by Etwopeau Foreign 
Ministers to revive Turkey’s 
association agreement with 
the EEC later this year, be 
expressed the hope that Tur- 
key may be accepted as a foil 
member within 10 years. . 

Britain looks favourably on 
the idea of eventual Turkish 
membership but believes that 
it oooM take as long as 15 or 
20 years before Turkey is 
politically and economically 
ready. 

One of the main stumbling 
Mocks is the continued Turk- 
ish occupation of the northern 
part of Cypres, an issue that 
was also discussed at yester- 
day's talks. Greece had object- 


Bill on 
euthanasia 
blocked 

The Hague (Reuter) — The 
Dutch Government has 
blocked euthanasia legislation 
despite majority support but 
its backers still say The Neth- 
erlands is likely to be the first 
country to allow mercy-kill- 
ing. 

Mr Pieter Smit. the Liberal 
spokesman, said a request by 
Mr Frederik Konhals Altes. 
the Minister for Justice, to 
have the debate deferred, had 
insured the Bill could not 
become law before a general 
election due in May. But he 
said its support was so strong 
that it was virtually inevitable 
after the election.

Britons 9 role m Uganda war 


The Okelln regime in l gan- 
da emplined British merce- 
naries to fly and arm irs 
helicopter gun ships, according 
to an American atrrtun being 
questioned bv the 2 «fhnri!w 
here. This must hate been 
done with the knowledge uf the 
British Government. 

Five men from Defence 
Systems Ltd. the London- 
based private security compa- 
ny, arrived late last year to fly 
and arm the Uganda Army’s 
two Bell Augusta helicopter 
gunships. 

The two pilots. Mr Richard 
Merry and a Mr Peacock, a 
white Zimbabwean, flew sev- 
eral test missions over Lake 
Victoria to fire the newly- 
installed rockets and machine 
guns. Later, the gunships were 
in action against the National 
Resistance Army (NRA). 
though there is no evidence 
that these missions were flown 
by Defence Systems person- 
al. 

Defence Systems is a re- 
spectable Wesrrainsfer-based 
security firm, which employs 
mainly former Special Air 
Services personnel. Its chair- 
man is Viscount Monckton of 
Brenchiey and it would not 
operate in a country without

the approval of the British 
Govern mear. 

A spokesman for the British 
Hiph Commission here said 
that he was aware that De- 
fence S; stems and other Brit- 
ish security companies were 
iiperatinp in Uganda, bur did 
not know exactly what they 
were doing. 

Mr Jo*? Jackson, an Ameri- 
can employed by Uganda Air 
Cargo as flight engineer for 
the company’s Cl 30 aircraft, 
in being questioned by the new 
Ugandan authorities. He and 
Mr Colin Palph. a New Zea- 
lander who worked for the 
company which serviced heli- 
copters ’ here, are not being 
detained but their passports 
have been confiscated. 

Mr Jackson said that De- 
fence Systems arrived at the 
time of the signing of (he peace 
accord between the Okello 
government and the NRA. and 
continued to work after the 
peace agreement was signed. 
The government had decided 
to boy and fit rocket pods and 
machineguns for the two Bell 
Augusta Griffin helicopters. 

The Italian company re- 
sponsible for servicing the 
aircraft refused to fit the 
weapons, and so Defence Sys- 


tem*. was called in. It sent tw» 
pilots and three armourers, 
four of them British. 

Before they arrived, how ev- 
er. Canadian employee*, of a 
Swiss company. Ha rev life Ag. 
had already fitted the weapons 
and were flying rhe helicop- 
ters. Mr Jackson said that the 
two Clareville pilots. Mr Bill 
Waugh and another called 
Berm, had been flying the 
civilian helicopters fur some 
time 2 s well as airlifting 
supplies to Okello garrisons 
surrounded by the NRA at 
Masaka. 

"After one mission the heli- 
copter picked up 11 bullet 
holes so Bernt said he 
wouldn’t fly it any more. But 
Waugb went on Dying, and I’m 
told he flew one of the combat 
missions.' 1 

The Defence systems men 
staved at the Lake Victoria 
Hotel at Entebbe and Mr 
Jackson said they always 
carried their AK47 assault 
rifles with them. 

All of them fled at the time 
of the takeover in January, but 
Mr Waugh flew the ousted 
President Okello to Jinja and 
then to Sudan before going to 
Nairobi.

Herr Hans-Jochen Vogel

But Herr Vogel, who *2 
talking to reporters after rr-

of the investigation by pub*,-

demanding Herr Kohl's resi;

Some of the payments relat

the Cyprus problem remains 
unresolved* 

Another problem area is 
Turkey's human rights record 
which, although improving 
since Mr OzaTs cmlian gov- 
ernment took office two years 
ago, stiff leaves much to be 
desired. 

Amnesty International de- 
livered a report to Mrs 
Thatcher's office before 
yesterday's meeting, saying 
there was evidence that torture 
was still being widely used in 
Turkish prisms. 

The organization says there 
are over 151,000 political pris- 
oners in Turkey. 

Yesterday Mr Ozal also met 
Mr Nigel Lawson, the Chan- 
cellor of the Exchequer, had 
lunch in the City of London 
and attended an official ban- 
quet in Downing Street. 


‘Billions’ 
for UK in 
Star Wars 

By Out Diplomatic 
Correspondent 

The head of President 
Reagan’s “Star Wars” pro- 
gramme forecast yesterday 
that commas worth billions 
of dollars could eventually be 
won by British companies and 
research organizations as a 
result of Britain’s decision to 
take pan in the controversial 
space defence project. 

However. General 
James Abraham son. who has 
been tn London to give details 
of classified aspects of the 
project to interested British 
companies, said that it would 
take several years before any 
significant commercial bene- 
fits could be reaped. 

“The first step is the plant- 
ing of technical seeds which 
we expect to sprout and 
grow” he said before leaving 
discuss possible Israeli partici- 
pation in the Strategic De- 
fence Initiative (SDI). 

While in London General 
Abrahamson initialled a series 
of implementing instructions 
with Dr Richard Norman, 
chief scientific adviser at the 
Ministry of Defence, which 
will make it easier for British 
companies to take part in the 
$26 billion dollar projecL 
He said Britain's involve- 
ment would have important 
spin-offs for conventional de- 
fence and civilian projects. 

He denied some American 
reports that the value of work 
going to Britain and other 
participating allies would be 
far lower than is officially 
being projected. 


Hurd joins 
Paris war 
on terror 

From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary, held talks in 
Paris yesterday with M Pierre 
Joxe. his French counterpart, 
on ways of intensifying bilat- 
eral and international co- 
operation on terrorism and 
drug trafficking. 

It was the second meeting 
between the two ministers 
within the last three months 
and indicates the growing 

awareness ofbotb sides of the 
increasingly international 
character of their jobs. 

Mr Hurd bas held similar 
meetings within the last few 
months with his Italian and 
Greek counterparts. 

The problems relating to the 
policing of the Channel Tun- 
nel were not discussed. Mr 
Hurd said that talks between 
officials on such issues as 
measures to control rabies, 
drugs, terrorism, and immi- 
gration in relation to tbe fixed 
link would begin “fitirly 
soon", but that it was still too 
early for discussions at minis- 
terial level. 

The recent bomb attacks in 
Rome, Vienna and Paris fea- 
tured prominently in 
yesterday’s talks but Libya 
was not discussecLFrance and 
Britain do not share the 
United States view that Libya 
is the fountainhead of world 
terrorism. 

Mr Hurd indicated that 
both he and M Joxe were in 
general satisfied with the co- 
operation already existing be- 
tween the various agencies 
dealing with drugs and terror- 
ism in their two countries.

Tyranny in the firing line 


Ten years ago much 
of Latin America was 
ruled by dictators, 

, most of whom have 
now fallen. In Africa, 
too, some harsh 
regimes are over. 
Could despotism be 
on the way out? 


T hese are bad times for 
dictators. Many have been 
finding out the hard way 
that their services are no 
longer required — they have 
J lost their jobs. 

! A generation ago a political map of 
• Latin America would have shown far 
I more dictatorships than democra- 
| ries. Some of the caudil/os then in 
| power were internationally famous 
i figures, synonymous with cruelty 
I and corruption — Peron in Argenti- 
} na, Batista in Cuba, Trujillo in 
j Dominica, Somoza in Nicaragua and 
( Duvalier in Haiti 
( Africa, too, produced its crop of 
[ tin-pot dictators. Some, like Kwame 
_ Nkromah ia Ghana, won a degree of 
. political respectability by being in 
j the forefront of the struggle against 
; European colonialism. Others, how- 
t ever, took despotism and self- 
enrichment to heights never dreamt 
1 of by their Latin counterparts, 
i In Equatorial Guinea, for exam- 
I pie, the tyrannical rule of the late 
Macias Nguema caused one-third of 
the population to flee the country. 

" His near-neighbour Emperor Jean- 
i Bedel Bokassa spent a quarter of the 
Central African Republic's foreign 
1 earnings on his Napoleon ic-s tv le 
1 coronation, fed his enemies to the 
( crocodiles and. according to those 
J who opened his refrigerator after he 
, was overthrown, dined off human 
1 flesh.

publication, there are 38 dictators 
around the world who have been in 
office for more than a decade. Many 
of them are very old - President 
Bourguiba of Tunisia and President 
Banda of Malawi for example, are 
both octogenarians. 

The only surprise about the over- 
throw of President" Baby Doc” 
Duvalier of Haiti is that it took so 
long. Duvalier’s dictatorship was a 
classic of its kind, and so was his 
downfall Having none. of his late

away a fortune estimated at more 
than £300 million. 


The decline of Latin American 
dictatorships can .be traced to a 
change in US attitudes that began 
with the Kennedy administration. 
US governments decided that simply 
being anti-communist was not 
enough to justify American support 
Adherence to democratic principles 
and respect for human rights were 
also important When men like 
Barista and Somoza paid no atten- 
tion to either democracy or human 
rights, the Americans helped local 
opposition forces to remove them. 


O ne of the most striking 
developments in Latin 
America during the past 
decade has been the way 
that dictatorship and mil- 
itary rule have given way to democ- 
racy — a process for which the US

Ecuador, Uruguay. Bolivia. Para- 
guay, in feet most of Central 

America (with the notable exception 
of Costa Rica) were ran by military 
dictatorships. Today more 90 per 


cent of Latin American people are 
living in countries that are either 
democratic or heading in that direc- 
tion. 

There are only two old-style right- 
wing military dictators still in power 
in Latin America, President Alfredo 
Stioessner of Paraguay and Presi- 
dent Augusto Pinochet of Chile — 
and probably only Stroessner fully 
deserves the title caudiUo. a type of 
feudal leader peculiar to Latin 
America.

on doing so until be dies. He has 
been in office longer than Franco was 
in Spain; at least half of Paraguay’s 
three million people were not bora 
when he seized power. 

His slogan, seen on hoardings 
around the capital Asuncion, is 
“peace, work and well-being”; it 
undoubtedly holds an appeal for a 
country which bad 28 (Residents in

power. A desire for stability and 
continuity partly explains why 
Stroessner invariably manages to 
win around 90 per cent of the vote 
each time there is an election. Fraud 
and corruption undoubtedly also 
play their part, but it is widely 
believed that even if a free election 
were held Stroessner would easily 
win, so successful has he been in 
turning Paraguay into his personal 
fiefdom.

whereas Paraguay is ignored by most '

exemplifying all that is rotten about

The ubiquitous trout 


By tradition die trout occupies 
a position second only to the 
salmon ia the freshwater 
fisherman’s hierarchy. Its gas- 
tronomic attractions have onto 
recently bees enhanced by the 
sense of its being a special 
treat, brought to the table not 
by everyday commercial pro- 
duction but by the skills and 
patience of foe hunter. 

Bat with foe advent of foe 
trout farm, its status has 
changed. In the last 10 years 
commercial prod action has 
risen from L500 tonnes in 1976 
to a projected 1(1500 tonnes 
this year, and what was once a 
luxury has become common- 
place in fishmongers' shops 
and on supermarket co raters. 
So prolific has front forming 


become that tovrist agencies in 
Scotland this week claimed

advantage is obvious — in the 
last ten years the price of front 
in real terms has dropped from ' 
an average of 77p to 56p a 
pound. 

Fish forming worldwide is 
estimated to be worth some 
£64)00 million, excluding 
shellfish such as shrimps and 
prawns, and is growing at foe 
rate of abost 15 per cent a year. 
In western Europe alone total

bees startled to have come

most unlikely hit to New

The promise of high 

salaries has lured 


SWW* 


many NHS nurses to 


Saudi Arabia, but as 
two of them tell 


Alison Miller, life 


there for foreign 


women can be hell 


Phillipa Smith is 40. In 1983 she 
went to work in Saudi Arabia as 
a staff nurse at a military 
hospital in Jedda. She wanted 
the £1 1 ,500 salary to pay for her 
children’s private education, 
but she rapidly discovered that 
life in the desert kingdom was 
extremely difficult for European 
women, and now feels she was 
exploited by the British nursing 
agency that sent her. 

“At my interview, which was 
extremely professional, I was 
given the impression that I was 
going somewhere quite or- 
ganized and under control, 
where they looked after you 
well No mention was made 
about the Saudi-isation of jobs 
and accommodation, which 
meant subsequently that we 
were thrown out of our villas in 
a sheltered compound and into 
appalling conditions in a former 
Sheraton hotel that had been 
condemned. 

“Now called the A1 Badr 
residence, the former hotel is on 
16 floors but the first three were 
inaccessible because they were 
blocked off for the men to use. 
The food was terrible — it cost 
£4 for a meal — and sewage 
seeped into the restaurant. Of 
400 people staying in the build- 
ing you only ever saw eight or 
12 prepared to eat there. “I- had 
a small room with no daylight 
and mushrooms growing m the 
wardrobe. Immediately op- 
posite was the room of a Saudi 
man who just stared into my 
room all the time. When I 
complained I was told that no 
complaints could be made 
against Saudi nationals of any 
land. I had to move. 

“At first men friends were ' 
allowed to come to our com- 
pound. But the agepcy kept' 
changing the rules. You had to

agency gave me no support at 
all. Their attitude to any prob- 
lem was always ‘if you don’t like 
it get out’. Bui that’s not so 
easy. I spent two years and nine 
months there. 1 was able to cope 
only because I had been married 
and am what you might call 
seasoned. But people who are 
* still quite fresh. I just con*: 
know how they don’t crack up." 


Pen friends: a novel twist 
to the success story 


Victims of a veiled society: Phfllipa Smith and Tberese Brown, whose 
dreams of a career abroad turned sour 
meet them in the foyer, then it 
was no meeting men in the 
hotel, you had to meet them 
outside. Then the agency 


wouldn't let you be collected 
outside because the Saudis had 
been complaining. We were 
supposed to meet them around 
the corner — but it was far too 
dangerous to set foot on the 
road. Then the agency told us 
we weren’t allowed to stay out 
overnight unless it was with a 
married couple. It wasn’t as 
though we were having wild 
orgies. We simply stayed over 
for our own security. I found 
myself becoming a virtual pris- 
oner. When off duty all you 
could do was sit in your room 
and smoke. You couldn't cook, 
do housework or even read an 
English. language paper because 
the censors would have been at. 
work. ■ - 


“We weren't told about the 
high cost of living. It cost 50p 
for a litre bottle of water, soap 
was £1, shampoo £3, a very 
ordinary hamburger over £2. I'd 
been led to believe that British 
companies would bail their staff 
out fif they got in a jam. The go- 
ing rate was £5,000 to £10,000 
to get someone oul But two 
male nurses were sexually 
abused in prison because they 
were European and were not 
rescued; the attitude seemed to 
be to leave them there to teach 
the rest of us a lesson. 

“Sometimes we had to travel 
without air conditioning in 
temperatures of 130", which 
meant that once you got to the 
hospital you had to shower and 
change again for work. 

My nursing officer’s attitude 
was that You can make ripples 
but don't make waves'. My 


Therese Brown, who is 32. 
nursed at Riyadh. She found 
one of the main difficulties of 
hospital life was the effect on 
Arab men of European women 
in nursing uniform. “I had one 
patient who touched my 
breasts.1 was appalled at the 
general Saudi altitude that zii 
Western women were pros- 
titutes. “1 worked for a stable 
international organization and I 
thought ! was in good hands. 
But 1 found that I was caught in 
a mostly uncaring armlock of 
international money-making. 

“In the NHS we nurses" are 
naive and gullible. I didn't go 
abroad to be able to buy a 
house. I went because my bed 
sitting room was costing me 
£100 a month for a shower and 
toilet — and my salary- in 1983 
was £5,000. I have always 
worked and have not married.’ I 
have to run a car. So you can 
imagine what the sound of an 
apartment with marble floors 
and a fully fitted kitchen would 
have meant to me. 

“I didn't know women were 
sot allowed to drive, that it 
would cost £10 to £12 an hour 
to hire a car to see anything of 
the country, that women must 
always outnumber men in any 
group, that it would be madness 
to be unaccompanied any- 
where, and that we couldn’t 
even wear Western dress in the 
compound. There was no 
dancing, no stopping - to help if 
you saw an accident for fear that 
you might get caught up and 
land in jail. Some nurses had 
not been paid for six months 
and were trapped — some even 
tried to commit suicide." 


T he question everyone 
asks is: “Bui how can 
(wo people write one 
novel?" The answer is easy. 
They write 40.000 words 
each. The difficult pan was 
Selims (he idea of rwo names 
on the cover. “Oh. we won't 
be able to publicize that", 
said (be experts. “Nobody is 
interested in a book by two 
writers," 

U hat they meant, we later 
discovered, is that publishers 
believe h is impossible for tiro 
women to write a book togeth- 
er without coming to blows or 

litigation. A kindly telephone 
call from a famous woman 
novelist who had tried it 
herself urged us to call in our 
lawyers and get our individual 
rights legally defined before 
we pur lingers to typewriter. 

We didn’t bother. We had 
agreed to do half the work 
each, take half the money- 
each. and we certainly didn't 
intend sharing those rewards 
with a law* er.And here we are 
with our first novel due out 
tomorrow, another commis- 
sioned and on the way, and we 
are still speaking. 

There were a few cool 
silences and frank exchanges 
on the way and this was 
mainly to do with our differ- 
ent methods of working. I 
noisily consign 12 typewritten 
pages to the waste paper 
basket for every - one thal 
works. Angela sorts out whole 
chapters in her snbeoasrioos 
before committing anything 
to paper. While she is doing 
this she settles on the floor, in 
front of a lire, with The Times 
crossword and endless cops ot 
coffee and, as I'm typing 
furiously, interrupts with: 
“Largest flying mammal in 
five letters with an M in the 
middle? Oh. 1 know. Jumbo.** 


Shirley Lowe tells 


how she teamed up 


with fellow Fleet 


Street journalist 


Angela Ince to write 


a possible best-seller 


Luckily we worked in the 
same place only for the last 
week, as we knitted up the 
plot. For the six months it 
took to write the book we 
stayed prudently apart at 
opposite ends of London, 
occasionally getting on the 
felephone to check if the plot 
was still on course. This 
proied viral as, at one point. 
Angela killed off a character 
in chapter two that I bad 
doing something important in 
chapter 10. 

We acted as each other's 
editors, she taking out my 
punctuation and rude words, 
me slotting semi-colons into 
her long sentences. Those 
were the silent moments and 
if we spoke at all it was with 
cool politeness. 

The advantage of working 
together, though, was that 
whenever I felt I couldn't 
write another sentence or 
motivate a character or come 
to a neat conclusion. Angela 
did it for me. and vice versa. 
“Oh, yon are clever", we kept 
say ing to each other, which is 
more than your average editor 
says when you hand in a 
newspaper article. 

Miraculously the seams 
didn't show, perhaps because 
Angela and I have been 
friends for so long that we're 
inclined to finish each other's 
sentences like an old married 
couple, anyway. 


her way In the top. It sug- 
gests. a shade heroically, 
that nut alt working wives and 
mothers are exhausted saints: 
that some of them are every 
bit as slothful as the old- 
fashioned heroine who used 
to lounge on a chaise longue 
eating chocolates while other 
people did her work for her. 
The only difference is that our 
heroine cats expense account 
lunches instead. 

Some honest ex-colleagues 
recognized themselves. “I 
went quite pink", one of them 
said 

We didn't plan it thal way. 
We didn't plan it at all. We 
just decided to write a book 
together and started by mak- 
ing a list of the hooks we 
didn’t want to write. We 
didn't want to write an epic, 
the kind that starts in Silesia 
in 1840 and ends in New York 
four generations later. We 
didn't want tn write a steam- 
ing sex saga. Our characters 
spend more time slaking their 
appetites in restaurants than 
in beds. 

We wanted to write a funny, 
truthful book about now: the 
sort thal American women 
novelists do so well but that 
rarely appear with an English 
accent. It turned out that we'd 
written “a deliciously winy 
satire on life in the fast lane" 
as a publisher put it. We were 
pleased with that. 


On one memorable occa- 
sion she yawned and said: 
“I'm going upstairs to have a 
rest now. Wake roe op in time 
for the Budget on television.*' 
I could have killed her. In 
fact, as I was dropping off to 
sleep around midnight, I 
could bear Angela revving up 
the typewriter and on the 
following morning found that 
she had achieved the same 
number of words as I'd pro- 
duced all dav. 


O ur agent and our pub- 
lisher both swore they 
couldn't tell who had 
written what and it was very 
satisfying to be 'phoned by a 
friend saying: “I know you 
wrote that marvellous bit 
about the dinner party. It was 
so funny. I could just hear you 
saying it." “Thank you". I 
said modestly. And, of course, 
Angela had written it. 

The book is about a woman 
journalist who manipulates 


W riting a novel is. we 
always hear, a lonely 
occupation. Doing it 
with someone else may have 
its irritations (“Oh. all' right. 
I’ll take out that feeble joke 
on page 173") but it certainly 
isn't lonely. A co-writer is 
happy to discuss plot and 
characterization in detail and 
throw in helpful advice. A co- 
writer is as fascinated by 
what you've just written as 
you are yourself. More. She 
begs you to read it out loud 
and, when you've finished, 
says gratefully: "Oh. that's 
wonderful'*, because she 
knows it's another 1.000 
words she won't have to write.

Dos and don’ts for nurses who want to work abroad — 


There Is some hope that such stories 
as PhSIipa's and Therese’s win not 
recur. The Rnjsl College of Nursing 
is revising its advice, bringing 
members (£45 a year) mere up to 
date with current working condi- 
tions in Saadi Arabia. 


The country, which was until 
recently the most popular foreign 
employer for British health workers, 
has lost its attraction not simply 
because of an increased sense of 
restriction among nurses but be- 
cause currency movements are now 
haring an adverse effect an the value 
of salaries paid to foreigners. The 
Saudi Government has also intro- 
duced taxes on what were prerioasly- 
maderstood to bejax-free e arnin gs. 
Where once a staff nurse picked op 
£1 1,500 compared with- about 
£44106 in the health service, and 
conM benefit by sometimes as ranch 
as 100 per cent from favourable 
currency fluctuations, today the gap 
between British and Saudi salaries 
has considerably narrowed. - 
Shelagh Murphy, head of the

you have been introduced, show the 
soles of your feet, point a finger,

about the country’s religion, people 
or customs."

persuade the Saadi Embassy in 
London to give more information to 
nurses before they accept jobs. She 
wants applicants to be interviewed 
by nurses who know the hospitals, 
and more information to be given 
about what will be expected of them, 
and what they might expect in terms 
of accommodation and recreational 
fatalities before depature.

Britain, at ' an appropriate level, 
because of staffing cuts.

But her efforts to bridge the gap 
between the demands of European 
nurses to know what they are letting 
themselves in for and the Saudis’ 
traditional approach may be too late 
for that country 's reputation as an 
employer. A quick survey of nursing 
agencies last week indicated that 
Saudi Arabia is going oct of fashion;

Of puddings and such. Doctor 
William Kitchener, whose 
best selling Cook's Oracle was 
published in 1804, is said to 
have said “It is true, that your 
mere cook and no gentleman,

ask if any dinner is complete 
as to three fifths of its propri-

benefit of mankind, you ought 
to write a book on confection-

Cakes and ices had been the 
foundation stone of the family 
fortunes laid at tbe sign of the 
Pot and the Pineapple in 
Berkeley Square in, 1786. 
‘Queen Victoria's wedding and 
jubilee cakes were conspicu- 
ous commissions. In this cen- 
tury it was to Gunter's tea 
shops that lucky schoolboys 
were taken for that last tea of 
the holidays; 

But the teashops closed in 
the 1950s and the once grand 
firm of Gunter's faded from 
public view. 

. With a takeover came re- . 
vival, and to celebrate tbe 
bicentenary, Payne & Gunter, 
now based at British Grove, 
London W4 2NJUhas added to 


its other services (hospitality 
catering at sporting events 
such as Henley Royal Regatta) 
a series of five banquets, each 
with a historical theme and 
menu of dishes current in the 
era celebrated. 

In the heyday of (he 
teashops, Gunter’s brown 
bread ice cream was famous, 
but that recipe, like many of 
the farm’s records and memo- 
rabilia, has been lost. William 
Gunter’s ices usually began 
with 13 egg yolks and one and 
three quarter pints of cream. 
This modem brown bread ice 
cream is easy and rich. It 
needs no stirring as it freezes. 
The candied crumbs are a 
kind of poor man’s praline, 
very good in its own right.

Robust, crumbly wholemeal 
bread is the best kind to use 
for this recipe. Spread the 
crumbs on a tray and mast or 
bake them until they are crisp 
and brown. Eight to 10 min- 
utes in a moderately hot oven 
(20ffC/40<rF. gas mark 6) is 
about right. 

Put die sugar m a pan with 
Six tablespoons of water and 
heat slowly until the sugar has 
dissolved completely. Boil the 
syrup to a light caramel then 
stir in the toasted crumbs. 
Quickly turn the mixture on to 


an oiled surface and cool

Whisk the cream until ii bolds 
soft peaks then fold in the 
brandy and crumb mixture. 

Turn the cream into a flat 
plastic box or metal freezer 
tray, cover and freeze the ice 
without stirring until it is firm. 

In addition to The 
Confectioner's Oracle which 
he wrote for publication, Wil- 
liam Gunter also kept a note- 
book of recipes for his own 


use. It contains the only 
formula I have seen for Thin 

Captains, very plain biscuits 
to serve with cheese which 
went out of commercial pro- 
duction about ten years ago.

Captains are very plain crack- . 


Sift the dour and salt into a 
bowl, add the diced butter and 
rub in with the fingertips until 
the mixture resembles fine

ually add cold water, stirring it 
in with a knife to form a firm 
dough. Gather the dough into

transfer it to a lightly floured 
surface. 

Allow the dough to rest, 
covered, for about 10 minutes, 
then roll the dough out thinly 
to a thickness of 3mm (ftinch) 
or less and prick ft all over 
with a fork. Use a 9cm 
(3ftiuch) round cutter to 
stamp out the biscuits and 
transfer them to a tightly 
buttered baking shea. 

Bake the crackers in a 
preheated moderate oven 
( 1 80“C/350“F, gas mark 4) for 
about 20 minutes, or until 
they are lightly coloured. Cool 
the Thin Captains on a wire 
rack and store in an airtight 
container. 

On the same page of Wil- 
liam Gunter's notebook is a 
recipe for Abernethy Biscuits,. 


John Caldwell obliged and 
called the result Abernethy

McNeill’s version of the story 
and of the biscuits which go 
well with cheese. They are also 
excellent made with 
wholewheat flour.

wrested by Collins. By lunchtime, 
however, MacGregor was back to

Rhodes lobby 

Dismayed by the Cabinet shift of 
balance to the wets after the recent 
resignations, Tory right-wingers 
are mounting a vigorous action to 
prevent the distinctly damp Chris 
Patten succeeding Sir Keith Jo- 
seph. who is expected to stand 
down as Education Secretary 
when the teachers’ pay strike is 
settled. At a meeting of the 
hardline Black Hand group of 
MPs, it was decided that former 
headmaster Rhodes Boyson 
should be pushed for the job (a 
hint promptly taken up by Boyson 
himself at the weekend). The 
campaign got under way at PM's 
Question Time when Liberal 
Clement Freud urged that Joseph 
be replaced; several Black 
Handers on the backbenches re- 
sponded by quietly chanting 
Boyson’s name. 

PHS 


Siren voices have suggested that 
Nigel Lawson should recoup his 
lost oil revenue by pumping up 
petrol tax. This is a temptation he 
should resist. f 

A fail in oil prices transfers 
resources from the Exchequer to 
consumers. It is argued, therefore, 
that Lawson should daw back a 
little rather than trim his plans 
for income lax cuts. The tempta- 
tion is strong, because a little more 
petrol tax yields a lot of revenue. 

Every penny on the price of a 
gallon brings in £55 million a year, 
add lp on diesel fuel, Derv, and 
the yield rises to £70 million. A 
modest 5p rise in petrol duty, in 
line with general inflation, is 
already built into the Treasury’s 
calculations of a “neutral" Budget 
Suppose, instead, that petrol tax 
were to be increased by 20p, with 
an equivalent rise in Derv, that 
would yield the Chancellor rather 
more than an extra £1 billion. 
That would be enough to finance a 
£150 rise in all the main income 
tax allowances, or shave 1 p off the 
basic rate of income tax. 

But this argument does not bear 
close investigation. Lawson's pur- 

Paris 

With the general election only a 
month away, one particular ques- 
tion is exercising French minds: 
who will be responsible for foreign 
policy if, as the opinion polls 
firmly predict, victory goes to the 
right? 

For the past 27 years it has 
always been the president who has 
spoken for France at international 
summits. Will Fiance be repre- 
sented in future both by the new 
right-wing prime minister and the 
present Socialist president, who 
will still have two years to serve? 
Is it possible for a country to retain 
its credibility abroad if it speaks 
with two, possibly discordant, 
voices? 

Under the constitution of the 
Fifth Republic, the division of 
responsibility for foreign policy 
and the closely related field of 
defence is not clear. Die president 
is described as “the guarantor of 
national independence and terri- 
torial integrity” and oommander- 
in-chief ofthe armed forces. But it 
is the prime minister who is 
“responsible for defence”. The 
president negotiates and ratifies 
international treaties, but the 
prime minister’s counter-signa- 
ture is also necessary for ratifica- 
tion. The president accredits 
ambassadors and foreign envoys, 
but the prime minister’s counter- 
signature is required. 

Francois Mitterrand has always 
had a passion for foreign policy. 
As a young deputy in the 1950s he 
talked ardently about the con- 
struction of Europe and the im- 
portance of creating a Paris-Boon 
axis. As leader of the Socialist 
Party in opposition he toured the 
world, meeting foreign leaders. 
When he achieved power in 1981 
he was already well known inter- 
nationally. 

Shortly before the 1974 pres- 
idential election he is reported to 
have said: “If elected, Giscard will 
be capable of grand acts. If I am 
elected, I will change the course of 
things and the life of the men of 
my lime." Now, more than ever, 
that is important for him. 

Significantly, Mitterrand has 

t 'ust published a collection of 25 of 
lis speeches on foreign affairs 
over the past five years, preceded 
by a 1 35-page introduction. It is an 
elegant and enlightening lour 
d'horizon of the world scene in 
which his total domination of 
French foreign policy clearly 
emerges without ever needing to 
be explicitly stated. 

Commenting on the book, Jac- 
ques Amalric, diplomatic cor- 
respondent of Le Monde, wrote 
earlier this month: “Like de 
Gaulle, Mitterrand wants to give 
us the image of a roan alone, 
infallible, united to the ’sovereign 
people' . . . it is the tone of the 
text, much more than the content, 
which is without surprises, which 
will make people grind their teeth. 

“All the ingredients of Mitt- 
errand iau ‘voluntarism’ are there; 
the good and the' bad; the balance 
between arrogance and condescen- 
sion; the total rejection of any 
doubt; the multiplicity of well- 
turned phrases; the bombast tem- 
pered by an art of exposition and 
pedagogy, rarely encountered in 
writings on so dry a subject; the 
carefully premeditated provoca- 
tions. and also the strong 
convictions.” 

In the opening sentences of the 
book, Mitterrand sets out the “few 


by Sarah Hogg 


pose in cutting taxes is, after all, 
simply to band back purchasing 
power to private individuals. That 
is an aim that could naturally be 
achieved by a fall in energy costs, 
without the intervention ofgov- 
emmenL Admittedly, the Chan- 
cellor wants to cut income lax, 
while a fell in oil prices is more 
like a cut in spending taxes. But if 
be is truly bothered about the 
balance between the two types of 
taxation he could finance lower 
income taxes by raising spending 
taxes across the board. He could 
raise £675 million (or nearly 
£1 billion in a full year) simply by 
adding i per cent to VAT. 

This is an unlikely option 
because it would plainly add to 
prices, slowing the fell in inflation. 
So, however, would an increase in 
petrol tax, which would prevent 
the full benefits of lower energy 
costs feeding through to the retail 
price index. 

But the Chancellor is actually 
being encouraged to slow the fen 
in oil prices for fear that it will 


turn us back into gas-guzzlers 
when we have barely learnt the 
meaning of energy conservation. 
Oil prices may well bounce back as 
stocks are run down; official 
forecasts anyway assume they will 
rise in the next decade. A 
“conservation tax” levy on petrol 
would meanwhile keep us on the 
straight and narrow path of en- 


ergy-saving. 

This argument, however, fits 
singularly ill with the govern- 
ment’s philosophy. Tbe theme of 
Lawson’s own rhetoric is that 
governments are not very good at 
these kind of forecasts and should 
certainly not manipulate markets 
on the strength of them. If he were 
to change his tune, he would face 
some awkward questions. If gov- 
ernments should intervene to fix 
the price of energy, why not other 
prices? Why not wages, for that 
matter? 

In the end, the argument boils . 
down to the sneaking hope that 
there just might be a tree political 
lunch to be extracted from the oil

simple ideas” around which he 
considers French foreign policy to 
be organized and which he be- 
lieves to have majority support: 
national independence; a world 
balance of military forces; the 
construction of Europe; the right 
of peoples to self-determination; 
Third World development. 
Through the pages comes a deep 
love of France marked by an 
overriding concern with its great- 
ness and independence. 

There is little with which his 
opponents could legitimately qua- 
rrel, but with an election im- 
minent the two main opposition 
parties, the Gaullist RPR and the 
centre-right UDF, lambast the 
Socialists for“ideologicaJ prej- 
udices and a multiplicity of dis- 
organized initiatives (which) have 
contributed to the removal of our 
country from the international 
scene and to the undermining of 
its moral authority.” 

The government is also accused 
of having “broken the defence 
effort with the following results: 


uncertain developments in the 
nudear field; a disorganized and 
worried army; a question mark 
over the future of the navy; and an 
inadequate air force”. 

But opposition policies look 
remarkably' similar to what the 
Socialists are proposing: streng- 
thening the domestic economy in 
order to strengthen France's po- 
sition abroad; the defence of 
individual liberties and human 
rights; dose relations with the US 
within the Atlantic alliance; vigi- 
lance and firmness toward Mos- 
cow; the construction of a strong 
Europe based on the Franco- 
German partnership; strengthen- 
ing France’s nuclear deterrent, and 
modernizing its conventional 
forces. 

The main point of disagreement 
is over French partidpation in the 
American strategic defence initia- 
tive — “Star Wars". Mitterrand 
devotes a large chunk ( 1 6 pages) of 
the introduction to his book to 
anexplanaiion of Socialist antipa- 
thy to the project, arguing that 


markets. Since the fell in the price 
of crude has not yet fed through to ! 
retail prices, the Chancellor might < 
be able to raid the petrol user and j 
still be thanked for reluming the j 
loot in income tax cuts. 

Even this overtly political argu- 
ment is naive. A sharp rise in 
petrol tax would give oil compa- 
nies tbe perfect excuse to slow the 
fell in petrol prices, or even 
conspire to put them up again, so i 
that the government would earn ; 
the discredit for far more than it 1 
imposed in extra taxes. Today's 
House of Commons is not in a 
mood to turn a blind eye to 
government sleight-of-hand. Nor 
is it sufficiently keen on income 
tax cuts to appreciate tbe swap of 
dearer petrol for higher take-home 
pay- 

Finally, such a Budget measure . 
would display a quite unnecessary i 
impatience. The strangest quirk of | 
fete is that lower oil prices, while j 
leaving, the Chancellor short of 
largesse to distribute in 1986, 
actually enlarges his opportunity 
to cut tax the following year. And 
that, after.all, will be much closer 
to the next general election. 

while it was unlikely to strengthen 
either French or European se- 
curity in the foreseeable future, it 
was certain to provoke a new arms 
race and in balance of forces. ! 

The French right is firmly in 
favour of Erench participation. 
Jacques Chirac, the RPR leader, 
said recently that he was “deeply 
shocked at the government's ir- 
responsible attitude towards ! 
SDL” SD1 would go ahead i 
whether France liked it or not; the : 
only question was whether France I 
would remain on the sidelines or , 
take part It is not dear,' however, 
what form of partidpation the 1 
opposition envisages. 

Meanwhile the present govern- 
ment appears to have softened its 
position by coming out in favour 
of individual French companies 
taking part in SDI research. So 
here again, a head-on dash be- , 
tween a new right-wing govern- 
ment and President Mitterrand 
could be avoided. Much will 
depend on the willingness of both 
sides to come to an amicable 
understanding in the interests of a 
peaceful “cohabitation”. 

The constitution leaves one 
trump card, in the form of a decree 
of 1964 which gives the president 
sole control over France's nuclear 
' deterrent Obviously, it is argued, . 
that control would be rendered 
meaningless unless the president 
also bad responsibility for the i 
dedsions related to its use in (he 
field of foreign and defence policy, 
particularly East-West relations. 

But by no means everyone 
agrees. Ex-president Giscard 
d r Estaing, for example, argues 
that faced with a hostile majority 
in parliament during an inter- 
national crisis that appeared to 
warrant the use of nuclear weap- 
ons, the president would be de- 
prived of virtually all powers save 
that of dissolving parliament and 
pressing the button. 

Although the opinion polls con- 
tinue to show a solid majority 
intending to vote for the right, 
they also show a smaller majority 
believing that the centre of power 
should remain with the president, 
and not the prime minister, in the 
event of a right-wing victory. 

“France is still basically a 
kingdom,” a former French for- 
eign minister explained. “People 
tend to forget that this country has 
been a republic for only just over 
100 years. All the people's gut 
reactions are royalist The presi- 
dent is king, and the French would 
hate to behead a king. Even if they 
do not like him, he remains the 
king until he goes away. They will 
not want their lung to be humili- 
ated by being stripped of ail 
power.’* 

If Chirac, who is considered, 
most likely to be the next prime 
minister, wishes to avoid a 
constitutional clash, he would 
probably be wise to leave the 
broad sweep of foreign affairs to 
Mitterrand If, on the other hand 
Mitterrand also wishes to avoid a 
clash, he would do well to avoid 
taking controversial unilateral de- 
cisions such as welcoming General 
Janisetski of Poland to the 0ys6e 
Palace last year without even 
bothering to discuss the visit with 
his prime minister. 

The two men must be seen to be 
working with the full confidence 
and trust of the other, otherwise 
France's voice abroad can only be 
weakened 


Making Britain aware of its warts 


As I came away from New 
Society's offices on my last day as 
editor, it was like going out into 
the Third World Westminster 
City Council's pavements were 
broken. In Leicester Square the 
expensive cast-iron repro bollards 
only show up the squalor of their 
surroundings. 

In the Underground, refugees 
from down-and-out hostels and 
mental hospitals lie around. At the 
foot of the escalator a man with a 
broken nose and a braised face sits 
cross-legged, begging. On the plat- 
form we wait 25 minutes for a 
train — there has been a signals 
failure. When I reach my stop the 
lifts arc out of order. Of course. 

Is this the “new society” people 
had in mind when the magazine 
was founded almost a quarter 
century ago in 1962? In the later 
1950s Professor J. K. Galbraith 
had been deriding a world of 
private affluence and public squa- 
lor. Everyone in the Wes: is now 
better off than when be wrote. Yet 
where there were “slums", now 
there is “inner city” The search 
for euphemism is constant. 

So is the discrepancy between 
rich and poor. And more com- 
plex, there is the discrepancy 
between the double-glazed lounge 
with its television and the streets 


full of litter or the parks spotted 
with dog excremenL 

The hardest thing, always, is to 
grasp what is actually going on in 
the world around us. Most of the 
time we live in a muddle of hope 
and fear, dream and nostalgia. 
Over the years New Society tried 
to cut through that to the social 
reality. We always had the stance 
of an outsider. 

To keep a distance has been 
useful We avoided political and 
literary gossip (leaving that to the 
older weeklies). In particular we 
were not caught up in the system 
of lobby briefings — now so 
vividly conducted by my near- 
contemporary at Hebden Bridge 
Grammar School, Bernard 
Ingham. 

In 1976 an unexpected guest 
came into the editorial office, 
carrying copies of cabinet min- 
utes. They revealed how the then 
Labour government was thinking 
of ratting on its commitment to 
bring in child benefiL Frank Field 
wrote the story, we published iL 
The commitment was honoured 

U was one of the first skirmishes 
in the battle for a Freedom of 
Information Act: the current draft 
bill derives from a study group set 
up after our leak. But as a 
distinguished lobby correspon- 
dent told me afterwards, be would 


never have been able to touch the 
story himself. It would have put 
his lobby briefings at risk. 

A magazine stands or fells by its 
information and its writers. We 
established a network of academ- 
ics who could weld together 
research and observation about 
current problems. Conruscating 
alongside these were such contrib- 
utors as Angela Carter, John 
Berger, Colin Machines. We gave 
E. P. Thompson a platform when 
he was denied one elsewhere. Our 
critics - Peter Fuller on painting, 
Michael Wood on the cinema, 
John Lahr on the theatre — always 
saw that the arts could not be 
separated from society. 

Much has changed in that 
society since the magazine was 
launched, as a very risky venture, 
by Timothy Raison and his father. 
Radical but humane; hopeful but 
rationak have these become adjec- 
tives now impossible to cling to? 
At many times in the past two 
decades we have beard almost 
nothing but the sound of rival 
dogmas dashing like the armies of 
the mghL An Orwellian sense of 
decency among ordinary people 
remains, however. 

1 his is what we have to cling to, 
rather than the militancies of the 
party theologians. All the virtues 
are nonconformist ones. The big 


question now is how to shift that 
sense of decency into the public 
world. It cannot just remain 
closeted in the private world of 
family and friends. ' ! 

In our schools, teachers have j 
bickered for a year over their pay. ; 
Almost all our public services are 
unspeakably grubby. Officials bide 
their time during the day to nip off 
to do their second job.The British 
think of themselves increasingly 
as consumers rather than produc- 
ers; we are far, far better at 
retailing than making ships. 

Privatization is a political and 
financial ploy built on this percep- 
tion. It creates so little public stir 
because hardly anyone now says, 
“who shall . British Gas belong 
to?'. They ask “what has British

often seen the massaging, or even

The true face 
of Fulham 


Tbe press had already christened 
Fulham the “yuppie” by-election 
well before I was told that I had 
been selected as the prospective 
SDP/Liberal Alliance candidate. 
So the first few hours enjoying my 
new-found status were spent 
worrying about what exactly a 
yuppie was, and whether, by any 
stretch of the . imagination, I so 
qualified. 

Should we invite American 
senator Gary Hart — remember, 
be . was the yuppie Democrat 
seeking the 1984 presidential elec- 
tion - to come over for the 
campaign? He might offer a 
definitive description of this elu- 
sive being and perhaps 1 could 
borrow a few of his “new ideas” 
which are supposed to have such 
election-winning appeal to the 
yuppie class. But that would be 
carrying my love of America to 
extremes. 

So, in search of the mysterious 
common identity, I rifled my 
drawers for the odd Liberty tie. 
Also I remembered that, unlike 
the last campaign I fought, a 
downbeat Euro election in British 
Ley land-dominated Oxford, our 
Volkswagen GD might come in 
handy. Then I paused for breath in 
all the excitement, and it suddenly 
struck me that the “yuppie” 
analysis had got Fulham com- 
pletely wrong. 

The key to the result in Fulham 
is not whether the Alliance can 
win over substantial numbers of 
middle-class voters from the 
Conservatives. I only had to 
knock on about six doors in a 
smart street near Parsons Green 
before I concluded that there will 
be little difficulty in that direction. 
People are worried about whether 
the present government approach 
has struck the right balance. There 
is increasing concern about the 
dangers of a sharp swing to a far- 
left Labour government as the era 
of Thatcherism draws to a close 
and our voting system remains 
unreformed. 

Tbe big battle at Fulham is over 
how many votes the Alliance can 
win from Labour on the council 
estates which comprise more than 
a third of the constituency. This is 
the key to an Alliance victory. If 
Labour can. consolidate its tra- 
I ditional support, that might be 
enough to ensure hs victory. 
Imagine my delight, therefore, 
when I discovered that as in 
Lambeth, the Labour vote, far 
from consolidating, is ripe for 
picking; 

Fulham was once a strong 
Labour area. Part of the present 
constituency was represented 
continuously from 1945 to 1979 
by Michael Stewart, Labour's 
foreign secretary in the 1960s. In a 
settled working-class community 
memories of such distinguished 
service take time to fade. 

One of the largest housing 
estates is called the Gem Attlee, 
with each block named after 
various members of post-war 
Labour cabinets. I brushed a tear 
from my eye as I had my 
photograph taken outside Hugh 
Gaitskell House. I have already 
repeated to sympathetic listeners 


on the doorstep hundreds of times 
over that Labour is no longer the 
party of Attlee, Jim Callaghan and 
Denis Healey but the party of Ted 
Knight, Arthur Scargill and Benue 
Grant. 

Some time ago part of the old . ‘ 
Barons Court constituency was 
amalgamated with Fulham. Bar- 
ons Court was a fiercely-contested, 
two-party marginal. The Mar- 
gravine ward surrounding the new 
Charing Cross Hospital once 
boasted 1,000 Labour party mem- 
bers. Now. 1 am authoritatively 
tokL there are 59. 

On the housing estates loyalty to 
Labour is only skindeep. Manv 
turned to Mrs Thatcher in 1979 

and again in 1983, but the “broken 

promises" and the view that the 
government is “all over the place 
often leads on to the promise that 
“we're going to give you lot 3 go 
this time”. 

Among the majority who stayed r ( 
Labour in the two previous elec- 
tions, the commitment to Kin- 
nock and his colleagues is as firm 
as a jellyfish — Labour out of 
habit, not enthusiasm and convic- 
tion, with many promises to think 
seriously about voting SDP when 
the time comes. The common 
refrain is “Labour's not as strong 
as it used to be” and I have been 
told scores of times that Labour 
spends all Hs time and energy 
fighting within itself and not the 
government- 

Working people are beginning 
to understand that Labour is not 
offering them the representation 
l bey deserve. In Parliament it is 
ineffective; and most trade unions 
cannot face the future boldly 
because their leaders are unrepre- 
sentative and unimaginative. « , 

Readers may well ask: if there is * 
such deep unease with Labour as I 
say, why is it still seriously in 
contention? Why isn't the Alliance 
riding high at over 40 per cent in 
the national polls and Labour 
down in the twenties? The answer 
is that the working-dass districts 
of Fulham are -typical of much of 
the country. To tbe Alliance they 
are virtually virgin territory. 

David Owen and David Steel 
‘ make an impact on television, but, 
except where small bands of 
dedicated activists have pursued 
“community politics" with re- 
ligious fervour, the Alliance has 
not hitherto been seen as a real 
choice. Without a big effort it is 
difficult in normal political 
circumstances to break through 
. the established Labour networks 4 
of local councillors, tenants 
associations and community cen- 
tres which often set the tone, 
especially where this creaking 
machinery is greased by generous 
grams from the GLC and other 
left-wing councils. Labour in Lon- 
don today depends in about equal 
proportions on Tammany Hall 
and Trotsky. 

By-dections give us a unique 
opportunity to get our message 
across. Hundreds of Alliance 
workers flooding in removes tbe 
handicaps we normally face in 
winning working-class support. 
Come to Fulham and see the 
Labour vote crumble.

It is now snore than three 
weeks since The Times moved 
from the lawyer-dominated 
* w °rid of the Grey’s Inn Road 
to the docklands site of some 
of the capital's newest high 
technology industries. During 
that time the transformation 
in the newspapers production 
would not have disgraced the 
most adventurous of our new 
neighbours; sadly, however, 
our old neighbours are ever 
more with us. 

It is regrettable that the work 
of lawyers is required simply 
to ensure that those who want 
to buy 71te Times are not 
thwarted. But when the ob- 
stacles between the paper and 
its readers indude darts, drill 
bits and blackened golf balls as 
well as illegal attempts . to 
threaten customers and suppli- 
ers it should surprise noone 
that the force of law is our first 
defence. 

The move to Wapping has 
been a controversial one. It has 
been welcomed by those who 
see it as a vindication of the 
government's stance towards 
trade unions. It has been 
welcomed by those who see a 
sign that the industrial climate 
in Britain is improving. The 
criticism has come - no less 
predictably - from commercial 
opponents who fear trade 
unions, from those who sup- 
port trade unions whatever 
they do, and those who rely on 
! them for financial and political 
- : support The debate has-been 
carried on everywhere at a 

• ' distractingly high volume. 

Amid the noise of the battle 
. . - it has become a commonplace 
to call the newspaper industry 
a microcosm of Britain’s 
" ’ industrial disease. With its 
. . long record of indifferent 
management, almighty 
unions,“spanish practices”, 

" ' '7 . • over- manning and financial 
1 under-performance, it seems 
the obvious candidate. Add in 
- • the glamour of a paper’s 
-.political influence and foe 
seemingly outrageous ten- 
dency of its writers to lecture 
foe country about its economic 
. ills and the candidateis efected 

• effortlessly to foe position of 
“typical industrial problem” . 

From such a starting point it 
" has become easy for critics to 
argue in recent days that 
. because in the Wapping dis- 
: pute so seemimgly moderate a 
trade union leader as Miss 
Brenda Dean has been met 
with barbed wire barricades,' 
has lost control of her union 
funds and can do little to 
garner fellow trade unionists’ 
support for her case, that 
somehow foe whole balance of 
- trade union law is unsaiis&c- 
tory and should be changed. 

. . This view is held not only by 
Labour leaders who see a 
chance that the strong popular 
' support for foe government’s 
trade union laws could be 
. eroded but by opportunist 
•• Conservatives, keen to clip foe 

prime minister’s wings in ev- 

, ery possible way. 
i • !7 It is a wrong view. It is based 

• ’iji 00 faulty premises as well as 
’ : ; 1 . high emotion. As important as 

- any requirement of The Times 
; *v u ’ in this dispute is the need that 
it should be repudiated. 

The newspaper business 
' ' represents an exaggerated pic- 
• f*-‘ uire of Britain’s industrial 
ills, not a typical one. Other 
l . industries have been run as 
' V' proprietorial playthings but 
- • ' not to foe extent that news- 


USING THE LAW 


Why Industry Year is so vital 


papers have. Other industries 
nave encouraged grotesque 
wages and conditions in order 
to damage their competitors 
but not on foe stale practised 
in Fleet Street. In other in- 
dustries agreements by unions 
have been signed one day and 
disowned foe neon but not with 
foe consistency, malevolence 
and bald bravura foal foe print 
union chapels have displayed 
for so many years. 

In those other industries 
such a record would have 
caused - and indeed it has 
caused - foe loss of jobs on a 
massive scale. In most cases 
after damaging strike action 
workers have been allowed to 
return to their jobs. But the 
■triumphant return was often 
an illusory one: The jobs 
appeared to be there to come 
back to. In feet, foe employers’ 
markets had been lost to 
foreign competition. Con- 
sequently foe jobs were lost 
too but foe connection be- 
tween strikes and job losses 
remained resolutely unmade. 

The newspaper industry 
was, of course, immune from 
direct international 
competitition. Le Monde ; 
whatever its merits, was no 


had seep it successfully distrib- 
uted to its readers. The ballot 
papers issued to her members 
contained the warning that a 
strike would be a breach of 
each individual’s contract of 
employment. And still the 
leaders launched foe strike. 

Why? Was it because so 
many of the individual mem- 
bers were so little dependent 
on earnings from News Inter- 
national that they were happy 
to make a political gesture? 
Was it because foe leaders 
therefore saw foe strike as 
inevitable whether they called 
it or not? 

Or was it because they were 
determined to break the law on 
secondary action and turn the 
plant into a factory without a 
marketplace? Was foe cause of 
foe strike stupid leadership, 
selfish leadership, political 
ambition or a pig-headed de- 
sire to break an uncongenial 
law? It is hard to know. 

The strikers have found 
some enthusiastic bedfellows. 
Mr Neil Khonock’s decision to 
black journalists from News 
International's papers - his 
own personal brand of second- 
ary action - is an unusual 
misjudgement even from this 


substitute for The Times. But famous misjudger of the public 

jot- mood. The tailiire of foe 


there remained the dispropor- 
tionate wages that foe workers 
had won; also the exaggerated 
loyalty that foe members felt 
to their chapel officers and the 
minimum loyalty they felt to 
their real employers. Thus 
grew the fa talism in foe mind s 
of newspaper managers. 

As long as there was no 
alternative place to print a 
national newspaper and no 
guarantee that the operation of 
ah alternative site could not be 
blacked by secondary action 
against distributors and 
suppliers, there was nothing 
that could be done. Only when 
there was such a site and such a 
guarantee, was there the pros- 
pect of change. 

■ The jobs of thepiintworkers 
whose representatives and 
political supporters are hinting 
dally abuse (and recently more 
Jetfial missives) outside the 
- Wapping plant have been lost 
in precisely the same, way as 
those of their union colleagues 
in foe British colour printing 
industry which fin . years 
seeped slowly to Amsterdam 
and Singapore. The difference 
is that they disappeared all at 
once. The fiction that after a 
strike there was always a job to 
come back to was revealed as 
just that - a fiction- 
The casual observer could 
be foigiven, of course, tor 
thinking that this revelation 
was made in rather a brutal 
way. For foe.***, print workers 
whose families were entirely 
dependent on their wages from 
News International it was 
indeed traumatic. Even fin- 
some of the employees who 
kept their jobs it was a 
disturbing experience. 

But what appeared to the 
public as a swift and clinically 
executed operation had been 
recognised as an option by foe 
print union leaders for some 
time. Brenda Dean complains 
that her union has been “le- 
gally mugged”. But ft should 
be remembered that six days 
before she and her colleagues 
led their members out on 
strike they had seen foe first 
product of the Wapping print 
plant, a special supplement of 
The Sunday Times; and they 


National Union of Journalists 
to see its interest in behaving 
like a realistic, modem trade 
union instead of supporting a 
boycott campaign against pa- 
pers on which hundreds of its 
members are employed, is as 
sadly predictable. For foe 
TUC as a whole it is one more 
issue with which it must 
struggle before it can grasp a 
new future. However muchthe 
government’s political oppo- 
nents and nervous supporters 
try to present Wapping as a 
watershed, as a proof that the 
trade union movement is now 
an endangered species that 
requires special protection, 
they will not succeed. It is not 
just foe law that has changed it 
is the deepest feelings of foe 
public about union power . 

Newspapers may be big- 
news today. Brenda Dean may 
. be an acceptable mask on the 
face of old-style trade union- 
ism, and Rupert Murdoch an 
accessible target for her smil- 
ing attacks. But foe dispute at 
Wapping is just one brick in 
that wall which has risen 
inexorably between foe onions 
. and the public. Compared 
with foe miners strikes and the 
winter of discontent ft may not 
even turn out to be a very large 
brick. 

The harsh face of old trade 
union power is not to be 
hidden. In Fleet Street it still 
manifests itself in corruption 
and censorship. In the rest of 
industry ft reveals itself in 
rigidly enforced restrictions 
and inadequate productivity. 

The unions’ traditional re- 
sponse to change has been to 
keep foe law out of industrial 
relations. The Wapping dis- 
pute began when News Inter- 
national failed to negotiate 
contracts of employment that 
would be legally binding on 
both sides - not a bosses’ 
charter but a deal to which 
both rides could be held in law. 
The future of foe union move- 
ment must now lie with those 
who are prepared to exploit 
just such opportunities. They 
have have to learn to use the 
law. The alternative is to go on 
breaking it - and themselves. 


From (he Chairman of Imperial 

( fiiwuvi huiH'jrit'f, pit- 

Sir, if ever the case of Industry 
Year was made in a telling way, it 
was in Mr Ian Bradley's article 
(February 8). It would be hard to 
find a better example, both of total 
lack of understanding of what 
industry is about and the necessity 
for it, as well as muddled thinking 
about foe ways in which the 
.desirable characteristics of the 
.post-industrial era can be applied 
in Britain. 

■ 1 can only assume that Mr 
Bradley has hide or no knowledge 
of what comprises modem in- 
dustry. The idea that industrialists 
want to return to ~dark Satanic 

mins*’, “the drudgery of the 
production line”, shows a lack of 
understanding of modern indus- 
trial thinking and processes which 
must be almost unique to this 
country. 

No one, to foe best of my 
knowledge, has ever argued that 
there are not plenty of ways of 
contributing to foe gross national 
product which may be more in 
keeping with people's wishes for 
foe future. 

Nobody has attempted to argue 
that we do not need a change in 
the attitude to work and that 
success in industrial wealth cre- 
ation, carried out by a much 
smaller number of people than 
hitherto, will not enable us to look 
for the son of gentle, imaginative, 
co-operative lifestyle which Mr 
Bradley yearns for. 

I have seen little evidence, in 
contradiction to Mr Bradley, that 
people in this country are pre- 
pared to forgo Japanese television 
sets. American video shows, for- 
eign cars, and even such humble 
items as foreign-made hand tools 
and garden implements. 

Bui how, in Mr Bradley's dream 
world, are these things going to be 
paid for? Is he seriously suggesting 
that, by entering into a sort of 
idealised do-it-yourself fixture, we 
will make our green and pleasant 
land so full of tourists that we will 
earn enough money to buy not 
only all the manufactured goods, 
but also some of foe produce to 
which we have become accus- 
tomed. like bananas and oranges, 
which do not grow readily in our 
climate? 

A prerequisite of being able to 
move into a new society for the 
future is that we have an industry 
and extractive industries that can 
earn our country’s firing overseas. 
These will have to provide very 
attractive products at low cost It 
is this which will enable our 
society to have choices and it is 
this that can enable us to develop 


the sort of better life which all of 
us look forward to. 

It will certainly be done, as it is 
being done today, by fewer people 
working in industry as factories 
are increasingly mechanised and 
as foe full power of the application 
of information technology is 
brought to bear. It is this process 
which is foe enabling mechanism 
for foe better life and it is this 
process that those of us who work 
in industry and those who have 
launched Industry Year hope to 
convey to our fellow citizens. 

Mr Bradley's article shows what 
a very lung way we have to go. 
Yours faithfully, 

JOHN HARVEY-JONES, 
Chairman.

Merger issues 

From Sir Michael Edwardes 
Sir, The decision to refer to foe 
Monopolies Commission mergers 
like those suggested by United 
Biscuits and Imperial. Guinness 
and Distillers, and GEC and 
Plessey raises important strategic 
issues for Britain. 

In all foree cases foe effect 
would have been to create merged 
units of a size abk to compete with 
foe many powerful US. European 
and Japanese companies now 
increasingly dominating foe world 
scene: and for example the 
Ley land/Bedford truck merger 
provides a scale that neither could 
achieve on its own. It is a 
nonsense to inhibit foal sort of 
synergy on foe basis that together 
foe merged units have a logically 
dominant position in the rel- 
atively small British market. That 
type of “little Englander” policy 
displays an ignorance of commer- 
cial reality which will cost us all a 
very high price in foe longer term. 

By being doctrinaire and paro- 
chial it is easy to have a whole host 
of companies competing in the 
same home market; but how many 
will be effective (or even in 
business) in iO years’ time? 
Equally important, how many of 
them will be strong enough to 
avoid being taken over by foreign 
companies in the long run? 

To trade in a heavyweight world 
market Britain must think big. It 
needs an industrial - strategy 
founded on commercial logic 
rather than shortsighted bureau- 
cratic principles. A review of 
Britain’s policy on mergers is 
overdue. 

Yours truly. 

MICHAEL EDWARDES.

WINTER FUEL 


Cold kills. For every degree by 
which the average winter tem- 
. perature drops, there is an 
_ increase in mortality in the 
~ winter months of about 8,000. 
Many of those deaths are of 
' ‘ the okL For some the cold is an 
agent of ineluctable decease. 

But for an unknown number 
of the elderly there is noting

■. they can afford a few hours of

of that scheme has become 
apparent in the cold of the past

No poor household, how- 
ever frugal, however well run, 
will avoid emei^ndes for 
which their reserves are in- 
sufficient. Hence the necessity 
for the social security system— 
present and future — to make 
"exceptional . needs 
payments”. 

Last year, the payments, 
were supposed to be rule- 
governed. Now it is frilly 
discretionary, with the result 
that disputable differences in . 
temperature have been al- 
lowed to dictate benefit pay- 
ments that may be life-saving. ■ 
. Full reform depends on 
changes to the heart of the

pensioners in Glasgow are 
expected, despite obvious di£ 
ferences in mean winter tem-

pensioner households in Bris-

has to be doubly severe to 
quality. This is absurd. 

No scheme will be ever be 
perfectly tidy. There fa how- 
ever an ample array of regional 
statistics for the cost'of goods 


and ' services, which could 
allow rates to be geographi- 
cally adjusted. The principle 
could then be more fairly 
applied that severe ‘ weather 
payments hinge on out-of-the- 
ordinaiy conditions for the 
area.

time to reflect at length about 
protecting the elderly and poor 
from the chance effects of 
severe cold. The time for 
revision of the scheme is now, 
before it locks itself and social 
security beneficiaries, into the 
financial and bureaucratic 
limitations of its proposed new 
Social Fund. 

As far as can be seen - the 
government having been coy 
about its composition — such 
severe weather payments 
would not cease under the 
Fund. They would however 
become^ loans, on the grounds 
that .the State by acting as 
lender of last resort should 
encourage better household 
management This is a sound 
ppint — provided, and it is a 
big proviso - the basic rate of 
benefit for the poor and elderly 
are sufficient for them to make 
reasonable provision for win- 
ter fuel.. 


Minors and GPS 

From the Master of the Guild of 
Catholic Doctors 

Sir, The new guide lines issued by 
foe General Medical Council (re- 
port, February 13) concerning foe 
provision of contraceptive advice 
to children under the age of 16 are 
surely to be applauded as a 
carefully balanced approach to foe 
difficult question of the right to 
confidentiality in medical 
consultation before foe “age of 
consent”. 

The five points made by Lord 
Fraser, in his judgment on foe case 
brought by Mis V. Gtilick, effec- 
tively require the doctor to assess 
foe maturity of foe child before 
deciding whether or how to pro- 
ceed in snefa a consultation. 

We believe that a minor has 
rights to confidentiality in medical 
consultation, which should not be 
lightly overruled, but that foe 
power to give valid consent and 
foe right to claim secrecy from 
one's parents ran in dose parallel 
and depend on maturity.Hence, 
when foe doctor assesses foe 
maturity of his patient, the extent 
to which be accords her 
confidentiality must depend on 
Char assessment 

If he concludes that foe girl is 
dearly immature and In a situa- 
tion of serious moral or physical 
danger, he may deride that she 
needs help and that this can only 
properly be given by her parents or 
guardian. 

It is right foal the Genera] 
Medical Council have dearly 
shown that to seek such help in a 
case of this sort is a proper exercise 
of clinical judgment. 

Yours etc.

Guild of Catholic Doctors,

Chisleburst, Kent. 

From Dr John Rogan 
Sir, In modifying their rules on 
contraceptive advice to teenagers 
foe General Medical Council refer 
lo the contractual nature of the 
relationship between doctor and 


patient. This relationship is based 
on the age-old tradition of the 
inviolability of medical con- 
fidence and not on a wholly 
inappropriate application of foe 
law of contract. 

Hitherto foe only permissible 
breach of confidence has been a 
case of serious crime when the 
maintenance of secrecy seemed 
likely to result in death or injury to 
others. 

Bearing in mind the political, 
religions and legal pressures on the 
council, foeir latest rulings are 
understandable but weak and 
unacceptable in practice. 

Yours faithfully,

Smallpox virus 

From Professor Colin Kaplan 
Sir, The statement by the Minister 
of State for Defence, as reported in 
yesterday's edition (February 11), 
needs to be corrected. Smallpox 
has, indeed, been eradicated from 
the world, but “occasional cases” 
do not and have not occurred 
(with the exception of foe sad and 
regrettable episode in Bir- 
mingham a few years ago). 

Rumours and reports of cases 
do, however, occur. All such 
events are thoroughly investi- 
gated, always with the coopera- 
tion of Work! Health Organisation 
epidemiologists and specialist lab- 
oratories in foe USA and USSR. 
No report or rumour of smallpox 
has been confirmed, although 
positive diagnoses have been 
made of other conditions such as 
chicfcenpox, herpes simplex, and 
— mainly in Zaire — human 
infection with monkey-pox virus.

Prehistoric site 
endangered 

From Professor B. W. Cunliffe. 
FBa. and others 

Sir, During this last summer foe 
longest public enquiry into a single 
planning issue in Northern Ireland 
was held over an application to 
extend the quarrying of limestone 
at Navan in Co. Armagh. The 
enquiry brought out foe basic 
conflict of interests involved. 

Navan is a remarkable complex 
of later prehistoric archaeological 
Sites, and It is known to be Emain 
Masha, foe early historic capital of 
Ulster and centre of Ireland's great 
heroic literary tradition, foe Ulster 
Cycle. As a combination of Celtic 
prehistory and historical identity 
and legend it is unique in foe 
British Isles and is recognised by 
all academic authorities as of 
remarkable importance to the 
history of European culture. 

The commercial and employ- 
ment interests of the quarry could 
be satisfied by relocating it outside 
foe area of academic significance. 
The enquiry also highlighted foe 
failure of the planning authorities, 
who have permitted quarrying to 
go on unauthorised for a decade 
and so have failed to grasp foe 
nettle of tbe imeompatibility of 
commercial development and foe 
historic culture of foe community 
at this site. 

The proposal has naturally 
aroused worldwide protests from 
archaeologists and Celtic: sts con- 
cerned with foe origins of the Irish 
language and identity. Of more 
interest perhaps has been the 
response within Northern Ireland, 
where notoriously the absence of a 
shared culture has divided the two 
communities in the province, lu a 
remarkable exception to this di- 
vision opposition to further 
quarrying came from the fall range 
of the political spectrum. 

If tbe quarry is allowed to 
continue for longer than it takes to 
find another site, it will have been 
encouraged to invest plant and 
equipment and open up new areas 
far working. In these circum- 
stances it would be able to come 
up with a fresh application for 
more land, and the story would 
only end when foe site had been 
removed entirely, apart from the 
one element which is in State care

Space disaster 

From Mr A. T. Crow 
Sir, Mr Alan Capper (February 12) 
draws attention to foe difference 
in reaction to the loss of the space 
shuttle between the confident 
Americans and foe pessimistic 
Britons and quotes foe inspiring 
words expressing man's drive to 
explore space written by H. G. 
Wells in his Things To Come. 
However, it may be pertinent to 
point out that Wells himself in 
later life came to view foe future 
with foe utmost pessimism. In bis 
last essay, Mina at the End of its 
Tether , published in 1945, he 
wrote: 

Our universe is — going dean out 
of eusience, leaving not a wrack 
behind. 

Of course he did not expect 
many to share his belief, but there 
can be no doubt foal he sincerely 
held it himself

FEBRUARY 19 1884 

In December 1883 the British 
Government ordered the 
abandonment of the Sudan. 
General Charles George Gordon 
(1833-85) ro sent out there, his 
mission being to effect the 
withdrawal of the garrisons and 
evacuate the country, tiis 
proclamation on arrival at 
Khartoum unu not wholly 
favourably received at home; in 
particular his opinion that slavery 
should be retained made him and 
the Government subject to 
considerable criticism. On 
January 26 1885 Gordon was 
killed when Khartoum fell to the 
forces of the Mahdi.

Drags in prison 

From the Director of the Prison 
Medical Service 

Sir, I noted with concern the 
report (February 14) under the 
bold headline, “Doctors clash 
over use of drugs to control 
prisoners", which will therefore be 
foe main message taken away by 
the majority of your readers. 

There is no conflict of policy 
among the doctors who are 
responsible for tbe professional 
ethics of medical treatment in the 
Prison Medical Service. The pol- 
icy is dear to all those directly 
concerned. It is that doctors who 
work is foe Prison Medical Ser- 
vice, whole-time or part-time, are 
responsible for the individual 
mental and physical health of foeir 
inmate patients. Wherever this 
responsibility ft in any way in 
competition with any other in- 
terest of foe service the direct 
individual good of the inmate 
patient ft paramount 

A second point should be made 


to dear confusion over tbe ques- 
tion of foe provision of genera) 
medical care Eighty-eight of the 
120-odd prison medical establish- 
ments in England and Wales 
receive all foeir medical cover 
from part-time medical officers, 
whose main job is as a general 
practitioner in the National 
Health Service with a practice in 
foe geographical area of the prison 
establishment. 

All foe other establishments 
which employ one or more M- 
time medical officers are also 
dependent upon foe services of 
part-time medical officers, who 
come ffi as local GPs and provide 
general medical services as re- 
quired for the inmate patients. 

This leaves foe full-time medi- 
cal officers free to get ms with just 
those jobs which several interest 
groups recommend they should 
do. 

The third and most important 
point- is to state dearly and 
categorically that the Prison Medi- 


cal Service is only empowered to 
prescribe pharmaceutical drugs 
tor the individual benefit of foe 
inmate patient and medical offi- 
cers are clearly aware of the strictly 
limited conditions under which 
drugs may be used without fall 
consent; that is, it is done to save 
foe patient’s life, or when other 
lives may be at risk, or when such 
intervention is the minimum re- 
quired to prevent an irretrievable 
deterioration in the condition of 
foe patient 

Any breach of these rules re- 
ported would be the subject of 
immediate investigation. 

Thank you for the opportunity 
to make these, I trust, very clear 
observations. 

Yours faithfully,

Director,

LATEST 

INTELLIGENCE.! 

(From Our Correspondents) 
ENGLAND. EGYPT AND 
THE SOUDAN 
(by Eastern Company’s Cables) 
Khartoum, Feb IS, 3.30pm 
General Gordon's arrival here this 
morning led to a wonderful demon- 
stration of welcome by the people, 
thousands of them crowding to kiss 
his hands and feet, and calling him 
the “Sultan of tbe Soudan," 

His speech to the people was 
received with enthusiasm. He said: 
“I come without soldiers, but with 
God on my side, to redress the evils 
of the Soudan. I will not fight with 
any weapons but justice. There 
shall be no more Bashi-Bazouks." 

It is now believed that he will I 
relieve the Bohr Gazelle garrisons ( 
without firing a shot. 

Since they beard that be was 
coming the aspect of the people has 
had so chang ed that there are no 
longer any fears of disturbances in 
the town! They say that he is 
giving them more than even tbe 
Mahdi could give. 

He is sending out proclamations in j 
ail directions. 

Such is the influence of one man 
that there are no longer any feats 
for the garrison of people of 
Khartoum... 

LATER 

Before criticizing General 
Gordon's proclamation, it is well to 
await the receipt of its exact terms. 
Meanwhile, it (fees not appear 
startl in g to those who are best 
acquainted with his views. 

Tbe recognition of the Mahdi as 
Emir of Kordofan he bad already 
telegraphed as a probable step; and 
it is one which, after all does not 
amount to stupendous generosity. 
The remission of half the taxation 
is merely dividing zero into frac- 
tions. 

As regards the question of slavery, 
no one » more sincere and 
thorough in his detestation of the 
trade than General Gordon; but no 
one is more ready to recognize facts 
and turn them to practical account 
utterly regardless of purely senti- 
mental considerations. He has 
always maintained that it was 
impossible to destroy the bade by 
operations in the Soudan. Such 
attempts have had two effects — 
first to render the traffic more 
difficult, and therefore more cruel 
to the victims; secondly, to cause 
perpetual ware in the Soudan, with 
a consequently inferior standard of 
government in it 
The sole remedy, even if this 
territory were under English gov- 
ernment, would be to suppress the 
demand for slaves by abolishing 
the markets or them in Turkey and 
Egypt- England having decided to 
abandon the Soudan, General Gor- 
don acquiesced in the advisability 
of allowing its inhabitants self- 
government This concession im- 
plied a continuation of tbe slave 
trade, and any indignation is 
therefore now mistimed- General 
Gordon is only proclaiming openly 
what everyone knows to be the 
inevitable consequences of our 
policy. The British Government 
would probably have been better 
satisfied if be had continued to 
make use of professions of hostility 
to the trade, while practically 
freeing it — just as they protest 
against protection and practically 
protect. Bat General Gordon has a 
habit of calling things by their 
proper names. England decided the 
question. he acquiesced in the 
decision, and is not ashamed to 
acknowledge it— 

The public may regret the immoral 
tendencies of remote savages to 
slavedealing, cannibalism, and oth- 
er vices; but they are beyond the 
reach of our arm, and it is unwise to 
be enunciating moral truisms at 
the cost of perpetual war. Practical 
philanthropists had better confine 
then energies to practical measures 
for which they possess the requisite 
power, and here they may do much. 

An enforced registration of and a 
heavy taxation upon the posses- 
sion of existing slaves, and a 
declaration of foe illegality of any 
future purchase or transfer of 
them, would do more than minifl pg 
of money and the thousands of 
lives wasted in foe Soudan during 
foe last 15 years...

English furniture popular 


There was fierce competi-

at Sotheby's Sussex sale room 
yesterday with a little 
padoukwood bureau of 
around 173S, on a parcel-gilt

Brighton. 

The fall front of the bureau 
opens on little drawers and 
pigeonholes and it has two 
long drawers below. The 
stand, with a key pattern

legs, may or may not have

meeting at the National Army 
Museum. Royal Hospital Road, 
central London, next Tuesday.

tbe Society’s steering commit- 
tee, said; “What needs to be 
done in Gibraltar is really too 
much for the Rock’s population 
of only 25,000. They need our 
bdp. The purpose of the 
Society’s inaugural meeting is to 
move _ on from an ad hoc 
committee to formalize its exis- 
tence as a charity.

Computer game treats children’s bad eyesight 


A computer game which has 
been developed to treat young 
children with defective eye- 
sight as they play has achieved 
’'significant rapid 

improvement” in about half of 
those who have used it 
The children suffer from 
amblyopia, a condition in 
which die vision of one eye is 
blarred and inhibited by poor 
responses from the brain. The 
traditional treatment is to 
cover the good eye with an 
eyepatch, which forces the 
brain to use the eye it has 
preferred to ignore. Although 
often successful, this method 
can take many mouths before 
vision is brought up 


exercise the children's eyes as 
they play.

etry las been studying electri- 
cal activity in the brain 
predoced by signals from the 
eyes. Some of the soft’s work 
bos been concerned with find- 
ing suitable visual targets 
which produce strong visual 
«gmh hi the brain. 


One of tbe most successful 
targets is a Made and white 
checkerboard, which reverses 
at regular intervals, so that 
black squares become white, 
and vice versa. A TV compoter 
game based onttusatteraathtg 
pattern has been created to 


In the game, the child or 
examiner selects a number of 
letters to be read and remem- 
bered. Random letters are 
displayed ia tbe centre of the 
screen, surrounded for the* 
alter natin g checkerboard. The 
chfid reads the letters with the 
good eye cowed, and when 
toe letters disappear, types 
them on the computer’ s key- 
board. 


chBd is allowed to play a short 
computer game as a Toward. 
The program has been in use 
in a Saturday morning 
children’s eKwic at the Scho ol 
of Optometry for the past 12 
months. Dr BOl Sontowaite, 
lecturer in optometry at Brad- 
ford University, who devised 
the same, says^A significant 


The cfaSd scores one point if 
the letters are correctly re- 
membered, and a new se- 
quence of letters appears. 
When 10 points are scored, the

OBITUARY 

JIDDU krishnamurti 

Philosophical and 
religious teacher 


Jiddu Krishnamurti. the In- 
dian philosopher and rdigiOBS 
teacher, died on February J 7 
at bis home in Qjat, Califor- 
nia. He was 90. 

Krishnamurti never sought 
publicity yet for fifty years 
thousands of people all over 
the world regarded him as one 
of the great religious teachers, 
and his many books, translat- 
ed into numerous languages, 
bad a wide circulation. 
Krishnamurti ’s Notebook 
(1976) in particular, is a 
remarkable mystical docu- 
ment. 

Born on May 25. 1895. at 

MandanapaDe in. South India, 
Krishnamurti was the eighth 



It came as a traumatic diock 
to thousands, who had for 


child of a Brahmin femily of eighteen years 
10. His mother died when he for the Coming, when in i v-v 
was young and in . 1909 his he dissol ved the Order of the 


lather , a retired civil servant Star (whtdi then 
and Tbeosophist of long bership of over 40.000) and 
gwmrting went with his four declared that he did not want 
surviving sons to live ax followers, that truth was a 
Adyar, the international head- 'pathless land’ and that nts 
quarters of the Theosophical only concern was to set men 
Society at Madras. psychologically free - free in 

Mrs Annie Besant, Pres- particular from all spiritual 
dent of the Society, and her authority, 
colleague, C W. Leadbeater, The inside story or those 
soon noticed Krishnamurti; extraordinary years was not 
Leadbeater immediatdty saw folly revealed until he allowed 


in him, the spiritual teadier of his letters to be published in 


the future. 

It was then a tenet of tbe 
majority of Thoosophists that 
all the great religious teachers 
were in feet the same being, 
the Lord Maitrcya, who every 
two thousand vears or so 
showed himself in human 
incarnation through the body 
of a chosen vehicle in order to 
help humanity is a time of 
special crisis. Hi s last appear- 
ance according to the Theoso- 
phists, had been in the body of 
Jesus. 

In 1911 toe Oder of the 
Star in the East was founded 
by Mrs Besant with 
Krishnamurti as. its head. Its 
members were convinced that 
a new Coming was imminent 
and that Krishnamurti was the 
vehicle whom the Lord had 
chosen. 

Mrs ‘ Besant took 
Krishnamurti under her 
guardianship and made her- 
self responsible for training 
him for this awesome role. In - 
1912 toe sent him to England 
to be privately educated. He 
remained in Europe, becom- 
ing thoroughly westernised, 
until 1921 when he returned 
to India 

It was then that he began to 
travel round the world ad- 
dressing audiences. Gradual- 
ly, however, his followers 
began to doubt whether he 
fitted into the pattern laid 
down for him, as he was no 
longer saying tbe comforting 
things thqr expected to hear. 


1975 in Krishnamurti: The 
Years cf Awakening by Mary 
Lutyens. , _ 

In 1983 a second volume of 
bis biography appeared. 
Krishnamurti: The Years of 
Fulfilment taking the story of 
his life up to J9S0. 

From ! 930 onwards 
Krishnamurti went his own 
way, travelling the world, 
giving private interviews and 
tallrc to an ever-increasing 
audience. 

Education had always been 
one of his chief concerns, as he 
considered that the condition- 
ing of children in the narrow- 
ness of nationality, race and 
religion accounted for most of 
the violence in the world. 

Krishnamurti had no per- 
manent home and the mini- 
mum of personal possessions. 
Foundations in England, tbe 
USA and India made them- 

Hsbmg^This books amf for 
administerii^ the funds vol- 
untarily contributed for the 
propagation of his teaching 
and the running of tbe schools 
he founded. 

There are now 
Krishnamurti schools in 
Hampshire and -at Qjai, Cali- 
fornia. and five in India. 

Krishnanmrti’s influence 
grew steadily. Each year a , 
larger proportion of young 
people attended his talks and 
scientists and psychologists 
became interested in his ideas 
of time, thought and death.

fjfeg her as a ci^-Sre 
Indian. Brooks herseffre! 
panned blithely unimpressed 
°> “w own talent, and her 
speech reflected the articulacv 
of her journalism. 

Her spoken recollections of 
Pabst s singular working 
methods _ were fascinating 
enough, if only because that 
hept breaking mouth had fi- 
9 naliy acquired a voice, but the 
programme's account of her 
last 50 years was frustratingly 
l ain. Do no ordinary citizens 

sm-vive who remember her as a 
salesgirl or a bloated alcohol- 
ic? For such an anti-Holly- 
wood story, this was an oddly- 
laminated treatment. 


Mr Chapman rakes treachery in 
earnest. and is not afraid of driving his 
viewpoint through to an uncompromis- 
ing. conclusion. Even the setting, in the 
P rden of Rees’s Thames-side home 
(magically realized in Bob Crowley’s 
assembly of semi-reflective plastic and 
pressed foliage), strikes the note of 
fclganan patriotism. 

Unfortunately, the queasy writhfogs of 
an uncommitted fellow-traveller do not 
easily lend themselves to theatrical 
character; and, no matter what they

Surprise surge in revenue 
boosts public surplus 


Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 


By Sarah Hogg, Economics Editor 


United Biscuits bought a 
further 6. 14 per cent of impe- 
rial Group, taking its holding 
up to 14.9 per cent, the 
maximum takeover rules per- 
mit. UB bought 8.8 per cent 
on Monday when it launched, 
its record £2.4 billion bid. 
Rothschild Asset Manage- 
ment sold 6.3 million Imperial 
shares or 0.8 pear cent. ' . 

Imperial has not yei recom- 
mended UB's bid. It is seeking 
guarantees on employee rights 
and an acceptable manage- 
ment structure. 

There is no prospect of the 
rival £2.27 billion bid from ! 
Hanson Trust being recom- 
mended. Hanson has until the 
end of this week to declare 
whether it reserves its options 
to raise its bid. 


The public sector swung 
sharply into surplus .in Janu- 
ary. cutting its borrowing re- 
quirement for the first 10 
months of 1985-86 to only 
£3.2 billion. 

Publication of figures show^ 
ing a net repayment of £4.5 
billion in January, roughly 
twice the figure forecast by the 
markets, had 1 an immediate 
impact on interest nates. Mon- 
ey market rates eased by up to 
*/ib per cent yesterday* with 
three-month inter-bank rate 
felling ?/ie per cent to 124k- 
1216 per cent at yesterday’s 
dose. 


January normally sees a 
seasonal swing into surplus in 
the public sector's accounts, 
with a sharp increase in tax 
payments, and this year's 
figures were boosted modestly 
by the receipt of £439 million 
of the 1984 rebate of Britain’s 
contributions to the European 
Community, pins £70 million 
of the 1985 rebate: 

But the main explanation 
for the size of the surplus is 
that the surge in tax receipts 


was much larger than expect- 
ed; This is now said to be 
explained bath by stronger- 
than-forecast company profits 
and increased penalties on late 
payments of income tax. 

- Inland Revenue receipts, at 
£10.5 billion in January, were 
a full £23 billion higher than 
in the same month of last year. 
Over the first 10 months of 
1985-86, total Consolidated 
Fund Revenue was 10.5 per 
cent higher than in the previ- 
ous. year. Inland Revenue 
receipts were £5.8 billion high- 
er than in 1984-85, and Cus- 
tontsand Excise recei pt s were 
£2 bfllioD higher. .Higher VAT 
revenues are said to reflect a 
change in the pattern of 
consumer spending, towards 
proportionately ' more pur- 
chases of VAT-rated goods. 

By contrast, public spend- 
ing seems to be remaining 
fruity comfortably in line with 
the' Government's forecasts. 
Total consolidated fund ex- 
penditure was 6 per cart 
higher than the previous year 
during the first 10 months of

Former Dunlop chief wins 
top position at Lloyd’s 


By Alison Earfie 


• Mr Alan Laid, wbo was 
group managing director of 
Dunlop, the tyres group/from 
1980 to 1984, has been ap- 
pointed chief executive and 
deputy chairman of Lloyd's 
insurance market, wuxfledmg 
Mr Ian Hay Davison. , - 
He has been appointed on a 
five-year contract, with the 
same tenns of reference as Mr 
Davison and on not less than 
Mr Davison's salary of 
£120,000 a year. His appoint- 
ment has been approved by 
the Governor of foe Bank of 
England and is efi^ctivefoom 
March 1. 



Alan Lord: 


Mr Lord left Dunlop when 
Sir Michael Edwandes joined 
foe board in November 1984. 
Sir Michael's arrival heralded 
foe famous night of the long 
knives, when Mr Lord re- 
signed along with Sir Maurice 
Hodgson, chairman of Dim- 
fop Holdings^hreeothcr ejtec- ' 
utrve directors and four nj>ft- . 
executive directors. 

When asked yestetriay^if be- 
thought he was sufficiently 
tough to do the job at Lloyd’s, 
MrLoid said yes and cited foe 
feet font he had sadly had to 
make 8,000 Durilop^rapto^ 
ees redundant to save the 
remaining jobs. 

Mr Loro said his priorities 
in foe ne w ap po in tment would 
be first to learn about foe 
insurance market, second to 


get foe administration run- 
ning smoothly, and. third to 
continue the process of regula- 
tion and maintain the mo- 
mentum of reform of foe 
Davison regime. Mr Lord has 
no experience of the insurance 
industry and is not a “name” 
at Lloyd’s. 

-Mr Refer Miller, chairman 
of Uc^rs^ paid tribute to Mr 
Davison, saying it was “fitting 
and proper to record 
publicaDy foe deep sense of 
debt Lloyd’s owes to Mr 
.Davison in foe evolution of a 
successful system of self- 
regulation”. 

Mr Davison announced his 
intention to resign from 
Lloyd’s last November when 
he felt that the council of 
Lloyd's was trying to curt) foe 
powers of the chief executive. 


Soon after his resignation, Mr 
Miller said the terms of refer- 
ence of the chief executive 
would not be downgraded. 

Tire disagreement stemmed 
from foe setting up in Septem- 
ber of a working party, under 
the chairmanship of Sir 
Kenneth Benin — who is a 
no minated member of Lloyd's 
council as well as chai rman of 
the Securities and Investment 
Board - to examine the 
administrative structure of 
Lloyd's and to. took at the 
function of the chief execu- 
tive. The working party was 
set up after an embarrassing 
£22 million accounting error 
was discovered in the 
corporation's annual ac- 
counts. 

Mr Lord's emphasis on 
administration is a reflection 
of the council's priorities and 
foe new needs of Lloyd’s in 
moving to a new buikfrng and 
setting up new and increasing- 
ly sophisticated compttter sys-' 
terns. 

Mr Lord beW several public 
appointments with the ^Trea- 
sury, inland Revenue and 
Department of Trade and 
Industry before moving to 
Dunlop in 197X He is resign- 
ing all his outside' appoint- 
ments to take up his Lloyd's 
job. These include a non- 
executive directorship of the 
Bank of England, and Johnson 
Matfoey Bankers, and of Al- 
lied-Lyons.

Franchising likely to expand in UK 


Franchising. while having 
growth potential in Britain, 
can still be very risky. 

A new financial survey* of 
franchising by Jordans, foe 
information service, shows 
some companies in foe sector 
see only a short-lived period 
of growth. However, it also 
shows there is a broad range of 
success, with some companies 
showing omsistently high lev- 
els of profitability. 

Franchising turnover last 
year is estimated to have been 
£1.7 million. There are 
thought to be up to 240 
franchisors in Britain, they are 
the organizations with a busi- 
ness format whose use is 
effectively licensed to a fran- 
chisee. 

The average number of 
units for franchisors .is 37 
which there are some 

8300 franchised outlets alto- 
gether in the country.

turnover and other estimates

Meanwhile, financing of

some have managers special-

Yorkshire Bank, the North 
of England retail bank, yester- 
day announced a strong recov- 
ery in pretax profits last year 
after the end of foe miners' 
strike, and said its confidence 
in miners' “loyalty and 
integrity” had proved entirely 
justified. 

Last year's £44.8 million 
pretax profits were 30 per cent 
upon 1984. 

There were also 200,000 
new deposit accounts to bring 
foe total to over 1 million. 

Mr Graham Sunderland, 
general manager, praised the 
mine rs — an important core of 
the bank's customers — as 
responsible borrowers eager to 
repay their loans. 

In 1984, foe bank's profits ' 
dropped by £2 million from 
foe previous year^ largely-fie- , 
cause "-striking miners could 
not make loan repayments 
and were living on foear 
savings. 

Mr Sunderland said: "At 
December 1985, most, 
branches in the affected areas 
reported an almost complete 
recovery and only a handful of < 
miners remained in foe non- 
performing category”. j 

The improvement added up 
to £2 mi II lion to the bank's , 
profits and allowed it to cut its 
bad debt provisions from 
£10.7 to £9.1 million. 

The bank said the “business 
sector in these areas will take 
some time to recover 
completely'* but more miners’ 
wages were now being paid 
directly into their bank ac- 
counts. 

Since the strike ended, the 
bank had rescheduled the 
majority of its 1 1,000 loans to 
miners. 

Profits were further helped 
by foe sale of most of foe 
bank's leasing interests, reduc- 
ing its exposure from £129 to 
£18 million, and by a change 
in accounting standards on 
depreciation of property and 
computer hardware. 

Mr Sunderland said foe 
underlying profits growth was 
around £5 million. 

The bank would now con- 
centrate on more aggressive 
lending to small and medium- 
sized businesses and planned 
to commit £100 million to 
mortgage lending in the com- 
ing year. 

It was becoming harder to 
attract new deposit accounts

Daisy chain tension subdues oil trade

Brent crude. A ltho ugh foe

Several ofl traders are 
; bound to go ont of business, 
and uncertainty about the 
financial soundness of many 
others has severely disrupted 
trading in this free-wheeling 
market 

But wider policy issues have 

also been raised. Should an 
almost unregulated market in

sensitive a : commodity -be 
allowed? Will traders abandon 

foe treacherous North Spa , 
waters for the calmer reaches 
of regulated . and recognized 
f t mir es markets such as the

New York Mercantile Ex- 


The market started in foe 
late 1970s as away of trading 
marginal quantities of oiL As 
the market grew, informal 
agreements between traders 
who knew each other were 
ngdaced by written contracts, 
which vary significantly. So it 
remained essentially n 
"gentlemen's market”, unlike 
foe • formalized £PE and 
NYMEX futures markets. The 
daisy chain contract is for a 
cargo of 600,000 tonnes, 
worth about $10 million 
(£7.14- million) at today's 
prices. Delivery times can be 
as general as a particular 
month, bin the loading time of 
the cargo must be specified by 
foe ultimate contract holder in _ 


the daisy chain by 5pm on the 
fifteenth - day at the latest 
before the tanker ‘‘fills” at 
BP’S SiiDom Voe terminal. 
Critically, payment toms can 
vary greatly. 

In the last few years, three 
factors have made this largely 
paper market increasingly at- 
tractive. First, for North Sea 
producers who pay tax at the 
marginal rate of 80 per cent on 
production, the daisy chain is 
a way of minimizing tax by 
selling into the chain and 
buying the oil back at a lower 
price. 

Second, foe abolition last 
year of the British National 
Oil Corporation’s right to buy 
51 per cent of British sector 
North Sea output left smaller 
traders and producers without 
a natural customer. They re- 
-sorted to the daisy chain, with ■ 
crucial consequences: chains 
grew much longer, and deliv- 
ery times stretched 

Third, the violent fell in oil 
prices to barely $16 a barrel 
provided a temptation few 
speculators could resist. But it 
has afro been their undoing. 


Mr Timothy Morgan, oil ana- 


lyst at stockbrokers WICO

that what upset the market 
was not the price fell as such 
but a dramatic switch in foe

Brent and West^ Texas Inter-

a tune when doubts about its 
continuing strength are creeping in. 
The mood is dominated by bid fever, 
with yesterday's offer for Granada by 
the Rank Organisation the latest of 
what still promises to be a continuing 
line. High priced paper is a positive 
stimulus to takeover minded boards 
so the two forces interact to keep the 
market buoyant. ^ ». , v .. 

Rank-G ranada provides another 
example of the law of equal and 
opposite reasoning. Having ad- 
vertised that it was available to be 
taken over and provisionally endors- 
ing the approach from Ladbroke, the 
Granada board when faced with 
Rank has done an instant 180 degree 
turn. 

Yet the logic of merging with Rank 
Is at least as powerful as merging with 
Ladbroke and the house styles of 
Rank and Granada are more akin. 
Alex Bernstein made a grave mis- 
calculation when he agreed to talk 
with Cyril Stein: he believed that in a 
Granada-Ladbroke group, he not 
Cyril would be in the saddle. 

Cyril Stem is not however a natural 
second in command: the talks thus 
foundered. With Sir Patrick Meaney 
at Rank, Alex Bernstein has a much 
better chance, and I suspect that 
given the right financial terms from 
Rank, appropriate understandings at 
board level would eventually pave 
the way for an agreed merger. 

Not that Pat Meaney is a pushover. 
After a traumatic experience losing 


decade), he has done a first class job 
in restoring Rank to a credible and 
financially robust company. 

Institutional fund managers have 
rarely had it so good. The only 
serious risk to their health for the 
time being is timing: if they abandon 
the equity market too soon, their 
boards would have their manhood. 

As the end of this bull market has 
been predicted for at least a year, 
those fund managers who have 
remained positive are congratulating 
themselves on their prescience; but 
realising how easily they might have 
been tempted to respond to bearish 
talk, hombly prematurely as it would 
have proved, has made them even 
more eager to move only with the 
crowd. 


Thus the market has scarcely felt 
affected by the sea of troubles 
through which Mrs Thatcher is 
endeavouring to steer her leaking 
Government Neither the pull of 
overseas havens; nor high real returns 
in the fixed-interest market; nor the 
lure of property have had anything 
but a temporary effect in diverting 
attention from UK equities. 

As long as virtually any company is 
for sale — a belief incidental^ much 
encouraged by the Prime Minister's 
positive attitude to the sale of 
Westland and the possible disposal of 
parts of British Ley land to American 
buyers — these are likely to remain 
the market's order of priority. 





PSBR data boost gilts 


The Government Broker produced 
the equivalent effect in the market of 
one-hand dapping yesterday by 
refusing to appear at 3.30, after 
January PSBR figures which various 
traders described as either too good 
to be true or too true to be good. 

The real ultra-sophisticates out 
there on the pitches had, of course, 
been selling the market hard round 
about 3pm, trimming exuberant 
gains in the longs back to about a 


point on the day. Nevertheless, the 
tone of the market at the close. was 
-^tifl optimistic despite storming' 
advances which have been made 
before and after St Valentine's Day. 

On this basis, the Government 
Broker . was probably wise not to 
appear ' with extra funding in- 
struments. Leaving the market to its 
own devices, rather than leadibg it on 
or tamping it down via taps, points 
towards the development of a trading 
structure at current yield levels, 
something which the authorities 
would probabaly encourage. 

Plainly, rate cuts are in the air. The 
more hot-headed of the analysts talk 
breezily of a I point cut in the offing. 
The movement of three-month inter- 
bank rates was significant yesterday 
in this context. Ahead of the PSBR 
numbers, it was down to 12 5/8 per 
cent, and it eased a further 1/8 point 
during the afternoon, boosted by the 
authorities’ generosity towards the 
money markets. 

Against a shortage of £300 million, 
the authorities supplied total credit, 
via bill purchases, of £287 million, 
following this up with £85 million of 
late assistance towards the discount 
houses. 

Even after such help, however, 
yesterday’s rate structure was still 
only endorsing current base rates of 
1 2'A per cent, and not, in the market's 
collective judgement, demonstrating 


any great desire for an immediate 
downward move in base rates. Ster- 
ling, for some, was telling much the 
same story. The currency pushed up 
through chart resistance points 
against the dollar, touching $1.43. 
But at a fraction over 74 on the trade- 
weighted, it is hardly storming away 
against ihe rest of the world. Hot 
money seems to be easing, rather 
than crashing, into London so far this 
week. 

Bui the picture could look radically 
different in three days’ lime. While 
. 'London whs receiving a useful boost 
from improved fundamentals yes- 
terday, New York was sagging on 
profit-taking. At one point, the US 
long bond was 3/4 point ahead, with 
yields down to 8.90 per cent. But the 
stock failed to hold these levels. 

This is an intriguing point of 
weakness, since the Japanese authori- 
ties appeared yesterday to move 
towards correcting the acute im- 
balance in the yen-dollar rate by 
sanctioning a more relaxed regime 
over capital outflows. Theoretically, 
New York bonds should benefit from 
ihis.Their relative weakhess suggests 
that some traders have decided the 
Fed is not going to ease its monetary 
stance. And Fed funds did firm 
yesterday by mid-session. 

London could still find itself 
playing reluctant host to cash out- 
flows from New York, and this could 
give the question of rate cuts height- 
ened imminence, to say the least. But 
yesterday's measured response to 
good numbers leaves the authorities 
in good heart. The Treasury, in 
particular, must be feeling pleased. 
By making the analysts look foolish 
twice so far this month with their 
forecasts, the mandarins are making a 
point about high City salaries far 
more subtly than the rumblings from 
No 10.

Denver, Colorado (AP* 
Dow- Jones) — Energy Man- 
agement Corporation said 
yesterday it was seeking pro- 
tection under Chapter li of 
the Federal Bankruptcy Code, 
and cited $24 million ($17 
million) in unsecured debt 
and the continuing slide in oil 
prices. 

Under Chapter 11, a com- 
pany continues to operate 
with court protection from 
creditors' lawsuits while it 
works out a plan to repay its 
debts. 

The energy concern said it 
was under no pressure from its 
creditors to file for the protec- 
tion. It said it owed two banks 

— which it refused to identify 

— about $10 miUon in secured 
debt. Energy Management 
also owes holders of two 
debenture issues about $24 
million in unsecured debt It 
added that it was not in 
default on its bank debt or 
bonds. 

In nine months, the com- 

S has had a net loss of $5.8 
m on revenue of $6.5 
million. Earlier this month, 

. Energy Management was de- 
listed by the American Stock 
Exchange because it did not 
meet the exchange's require- 
ments. 

Meanwhile in California, 
federal regulators took control 
of American Diversified Sav- 
ins Bank, a savings and loan 
(S&L) institution with $977 


million in assets, after dedar- 
ing it insolvent 

It was the sixth federal 
takeover of an S&L this year, 
and the third in California, a 
spokesman for the Federal 
Home Loan Bank Board said. 

Federal regulators contract- , 
ed with Pacific Savings Bank, 
another S&L based here, to 
manage American Diver- 
sified. Regulators said the 
S&L would continue to oper- ; 
ate during customary hours 
and its deposits would contin- 
ue to be insured by the Federal 
Savings and Loan Insurance 
Corporation. American 
Diversified's only S&L office 
is in Lodi, California. 

A bank board statement 
said the S&L had suffered a 
“significant dissipation of as- 
sets and earnings”, had violat- 
ed federal regulations and 
directives, and was operating 
in an unsafe and unsound 
condition. 

American Diversified, a 
state-chartered stock institu- 
tion, is 96 per cent owned by 
its chairman. Mr Ranbir 
Sahni, and 4 per cent owned 
by its president, Mr Lester 
Day, the bank board spokes- 
man said. Neither Mr Sahni 
nor Mr Day could be reached 
for comment.

Drop in liftings cuts 
Venezuela oil export 


Caracas, (AP-Dow Jones) - 
Venezuela's exports of crude 
oil averaged less than 1.2 
million barrels a day in Janu- 
ary, according to an official at 
Petroleos de Venezuela. 

This was due to a reduction 
in liftings at the end of the 
month. The volume of Janu- 
ary crude sales fell below the 
country's target level of 1.41 
million barrels a day. 

Oil ministry and Petroleos 
officials say Venezuela plans 
to make up for the lost sales 
through sales in the coming 
months from crude stocks 


held at its storage facilities in 
Venezuela and the island of 
Curacao. 

Venezuela has storage ca- 
pacity to hold about 20 mil- 
lion barrels of crude at local 
terminals. 

“There has been no change 
in our production levels," Dr 
Juan Chacin Guzman, vice 
president of Petroleos, the 
slate oil concern, said 

The Venezuelan Govern- 
ment last week granted 
Petroleos the authority to 
adapt prices to the realities of 
international market levels.

share price strength to make 
such a large takeover bid. Its 
shares rose a further 3p to 
547p yesterday. 

On the surface that is sur- 
prising considering the bid 
should theoretically result in 
substantial earnings dilution 
as Rank's shares slid trade on 
a prospective multiple of only 
1 0 times earnings against po£> 
sihly 1 6 for Granada. . 

That assumes Granada win 
make £83 million in the 
current year. 

But with the savings from 
combining the businesses 
common to both groups, that 
profit figure could rise to 
nearer f 100 million. 


market listing shows a deti- 
nue commitment to growth. 
PPL, which is placing a third 
of its equity for a full listing, 
is a computer software com- 
pany specializing in business 
applications ■ packages for 
companies and govern- 
ment departments. Over the 
past five years pretax profits 
have risen from £68,000 to

grown from £1.86 million to 
almost £9 million. 


per cent of sales. About 10 per 
cent of turnover comes from 
hardware cates. 

Dealings will start mi Feb- 
ruary 24 and a reasonable 
premium looks assured. 


Stores sector 


In contrast with other 
quoted software houses, PPL 
concentrates on ofTthe-peg 
p ackag e s which are flexible 
enough for many different 
users. The chairman and 
chief executive. Mr Roy Tay- 
lor. who has steered the 
company since it became 
independent in 1976, confi- 
dently expects growth to con- 
tinue at more than 40 percent 
a year. 


Monday's disconcerting re- 
tail sales figures failed to 
knock the stock market's 
confidence yesterday. There 
were even early gains for 
many of the mam stores 
companies, including Dix- 
ons, GUS and W H Smith. 

To some extent the market 
had been expecting a slow- 
down after last year's terrific 
rise. 


But many analysts were 



December and January. . In 
view of this, the dealers' 
reaction seems muted. 


Granada rejected both the 
argument and the terms. But 
its claim that there was.no 
industrial logic in the bid was 
somewhat belied by its simul- 
taneous suggestion' that a 
merger could raise monopoly 
problems. 

According to Granada, the 
two groups would have 20 
motorway service sites, repre- 
senting half the total. 

Granada was on better 
grounds with its claim that the 
terms were inadequate. The 
market certainly seemed lo 
think another bid was round 
the corner and pushed the 
shares up to 3 1 Op. 7p over the 
ialuc of the share offer and 
13p above the cash offcr. ■ 
Granada is likely to argue 
that the terms do not rake- 
account of its strong cash flow.. 
No doubt this only serves to 
make it more attractive to 
Rank. 


That makes the 

price of 145p, and a 

earnings multiple of 1 1, look 
distinctly undemanding. De- 
spite the sector's difficulties 
— with companies such .as 
Micro Focus and Logica — 
the likes of CAP, which came 
to the market last year and 
specializes in bespoke soft- 
ware, still sell on historic 
ratings in the high twenties. 
Even the prospective yield, at 
2.5 per cent is generous 
enough. 


PPL 


For a company valued at 
£8.9 million to opt for amain 


PPL’s growth ambitions, 
especially in North America, 
are clearly going to involve 
aquisitions. The net £2.05 
million raised by the placing 
will wipe out PPL's £1J 
million borrowings but a 
large acquisition wiD mean 
issuing paper. Nocompany is 
yet under detailed investiga- 
tion, but Mr Taylor says PPL 
has the management 
strengths to double in size 
through acquisitions. Better, 
then, to sweeten shareholders 
with a healthy premium on 
the placing price, than to be 
over-greedy at this slage. 

About 60 per cent of PPL’s 
sales come from the 
company's own software, 
with the rest from indepen- 
dent suppliers. Packages are 
sold with consultancy and 
training support, and mainte- 
nance accoqnls for about 20 


.. Having outperformed the 
rest of the market for most of 
last year, the sector has 
■ admittedly been weak in 
recent months. Since the 
formation of Storehouse out 
of British Home Stores and 
Habitat Mothercare, which 
marked the peak, the relative 
rating has sunk from 1 19 to 
106, where ft is still anticipat- 
ing above-average growth. 

That interpretation rests 
on two sorts on tax cuts. First, 
consumer spending which is 
expected to continue grow- 
ing. possibly at 2.5 per cent a 
year, would be helped signifi- 
cantly by any tax cuts in the 
Budget 

Second, the stores are the 
main beneficiary of the al- 
ready felling corporate tax 
bill This should be enough to 
ensure good near-term rises 
in earnings per share. But 
long- term growth prospects 
are uncertain. 

Mr Nick Bubb of Scrim- 
geour Vickers believes there 
are good quality stocks still 
worth buying. He recom- 
mends Dixons, Marks and 
Spencer, Next Grattan and 
Ward While. But for the 
sector as a whole, investors 
would be well advised to wail 
for next month's figures for 
retail sales. If they confirm 
this week's weaker trend 
investors could be in for a 
dull time. 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Shares romp to new peak 


Share prices went from 
strength to strength as the bull 
run showed no sign of slacken-

record 1234J. and the FT-SE 
index of 100 shares gained 
16.6 at 1491.9.

speculation, aO sectors raced 
ahead. Stores, which, fell on 
Monday on disappointing 
January retail sales, were well 
to the fore, often scoring 
double-figure gains.

switched to Granada, after a 
surprise bid from Rank 
Organisation. The Granada, 
shares ended with 70p gain at 
3l0p with Rank also adding

Information for Siemens shareholders 

Siemens boosts capital expenditure 
and investment by 85% 


During the period from 1 0ctober to 
31 December 1985, Le. the first three months 
of the current financial year, sales in 
the Federal Republic of Germany grew much 
fester than sales abroad. K was once 


more possible to make a slight increase 
in the number of employees. Siemens again 
accelerated capital spending, following 
a sharp increase last year, and improved net 
income. 


New orders 


New orders, at £3,592m, were 3% down from 
last year's first-quarter total; however, if power 
plant business is excluded there was a gain 
of 2%. The change in German domestic order 
receipts was primarily due to power plant 
contracts concluded the previous year; 
excluding power plant business, there was 
an increase of around 10%. Internationally, 
new orders held steady at £1,974m (last year 
£ 1,991m). The Components Group experienced 


lower orders due to the worldwide depres- 
sion in its markets; however, two-figure growth 
was achieved by the Power Engineering 
& Automation Group.

accelerated 15% to £1,508m. International 
sales at £1,543m were 3% higher than the 
previous year. Sales of the Components 
Group declined 8%, while two-figure growth 
was attained by the Communication & Infor- 


mation Systems Group and the Medical 
Engineering Group.

Employees 


Having created 20,000 new jobs during the . 
last financial year, Siemens again increased 
the number of its employees by 1 % in the 
first quarter of 1985/86, bringing the total to 
350,000. The domestic work force remained 
unchanged at 240,000 during the first 
three months of the year as a gain of 2,000 
employees was offset by a loss of 2,000 
temporary student workers who left the com- 
pany upon completing their agreed term 
of employment the number of employees- 
abroad grew to HO.OOO; 1,000 additional 
employees were recruited and afurther 1,000 
were added by the acquisition of new sub- 
sidiaries, mainly in the U.S.A. The average 
number of employees was 350,000, or about 
6% higher than for the comparable period 


last year; employment cost increased 10% to 
£1,426m. •

Capital 
spending and

Siemens again boosted its capital expenditure 
and investment! the £282m recorded for the 
first quarter was 85% above the previous 
year’s figure. The main emphasis was on fixed 
assets in the Federal Republic of Germany. 
Capital outlays of roughly £1,700m are 
projected for the current financial year. 

With net income after taxes of £ 84m (last year 
£ 68m), Siemens achieved a net profit margin 


of 2.8% (last year 2.4%), the same as for the 
total preceding financial year.

Highest ever dividend pay-out 


Siemens will pay dividends totalling DM 573m - 
for the 1985 financial year, the largest 
sum ever distributed to shareholders by a 
company in the Federal Republic of Germany 
The company's more than 400,000 share- 
holders, including over 140,000 Siemens 
employees, will thus receive a pay-out which 
is 30% higher than last year and nearly 
double that of four years ago. Thanks to divi- 
dend and market-price increases, the average 
yield of an investment in Siemens shares - 
provided all proceeds were reinvested - was 
23% over the past five years.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 19 1986 


Banks’ retreat from US 
could be ill-timed 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 


The British banks' much 
P 0 ^ of moving into 
the US, one of the big new 
initiatives of the late 1970s, 
3ppG3ned to shift smartly into 
reverse last week. Midland 
Bank astonished the markets 
with the news that it was 
duching Crocker National, the 
ill-fated Californian bank, and 
was closely followed by Lloyds 
divesting itself of its US 
subsidiary. 

But it is hard to avoid the 
impression that this headlong 
retreat is taking place precisely 
at a time when most analysts 
agree that the Californian 
banking environment, for 
some time a disaster area, has 
hit rock bottom and can only 
improve. 

That impression is rein- 
forced by US bank anal ysts 
who say that at $1 bil- 
lion(£704.7 million), Crocker 
was a steal for Wells Fargo. 

Certainly, Wells Fargo is 
following a policy of with- 
drawing into its home mar- 
kets, concentrating on its 
Californian retail network in 
which context Crocker is un- 
deniably a valuable addition. 
The attraction of Crocker was 
also that Midland had already 
done the essential work of 
cleaning up the bank's loan 
book, taking over $1 billion of 


international debt on to its 
own books. And after its 
recent poor performance 
Crocker has valuable tax 
losses. 

But while the Crocker sale 
looks like an opportunistic 
move to pull back from an 
expensive mistake, the sale of 
Uoyds Bank California has 
the marks of a more consid- 
ered decision. 

Midland is gelling only the 
net asset value of Crocker 
while Lloyds is receiving over 
one and a half times net asset 
value for its bank. Moreover, 
although Uoyds Bank Califor- 
nia did not produce big re- 
turns it was not the colossal 
lossmaker that Crocker be- 
came for Midland. 

Lloyds now looks firmly set 
on a strategy of withdrawal in 
its international banking oper- 
ation. abandoning thoughts of 
a wide branch network to 
concentrate on a more central- 
ized wholesale and merchant 
banking operation. Compari- 
sons with Morgan Guarantee 
or Bankers Trust spring to 
mind. 

That leaves Barclays and 
National Westminster. It may 
not be long before Barclays 
Bank California is divested. It 
is a tiny operation by Barclays 
standards, with net earnings of 


barely SS million a year. 
Barclays has shown little inter- 
est in developing the Califor- 
nia offshoot 

NatWest, on the other band, 
insists that its East Coast retail 
bank, NatWest USA, will be 
die base for further building. 
After a somewhat inauspi- 
cious start the bank turned in 
net earnings of $40 million in 
1984 and $54 million last year. 

The experience of Midland 
and Uoyds in the US suggests 
that British bankers have had 
trouble in judging the US 
retail market, but even more 
in judging the quality of the 
institutions and managements 
they were buying. 

But it is striking that Stan- 
dard Chartered and Hong 
Kong & Shanghai Bank, both 
foreign to the US, have made 
such a success there. Standard 
Chartered, indeed, is getting 
even more deeply involved in 
US retail hanking with the 
purchase of United Bank of 
Arizona to add to Union 
Bank. 

Standard Chartered's secret 
may simply be that as a 
diversified international bank 
it is more experienced in 
making decisions about for- 
eign markets than, say. Mid- 
land. It is also cannily using 
Union to buy United

reports that the 103 per cent

reflects both the higher revenue 
and the absence of forward 
metal purchases as well as the 
foreign exchange losses which 
affected the previous period. 
Remanning has been success- 
fully completed and it has 
proved possible to re-engage a 
substantial proportion of those 
former employees who were 
cocrccd into striking against 
their will. The impact of the 
disruption is difficult to quan- 
tify but the best estimate is a loss

Some of Mac O’Grady 's harsh 
criticisms here of Dean Beman, 
the US tour commissioner, con- 
tained observations and ideas 
about the state of American . 
tournament golf which found 
sympathetic echoes among or- 
dinary players, particularly 
those not' among the leading 
money winners. 

Why should the professional 
who performs for the first two 
days of an event then produces 
hundreds of thousands of dol- 
lars for charity, who pays his 
entry foe. caddy charges and 
personal expenses for travel and 
accommodation and then foils 
to qualify, leave the venue 
without a cent? Should not' 
every entrant in fields of 144 go 
away with say $2,000 (£1,400). 
out of the total purse? 

The usual answer is that 
professionals are self-employed 
freelance contractors, the 14 
dubs in their bags are their stock 
in trade and they endure weeks 
and sometimes months with 
very little income because they 
are “their own men." Nobody 
tells them where they play or 
when and consequently they 
don’t expect, nor should they 
receive, any reward when they 
foil. 

But there is a growing body of 
opinion among the also-rans 
which says that this is not only a 
Catch 22 situation but is a 
basically unfair one. Forget 
O’Grady's wilder words about 
Beman. Here are some of his 
sounder ideas about bow the 
lour should take better care of 
the men who make it what it is. 

“The tour gives away $15 
million to charity each year, 
admittedly an act of benevo- 
lence and kindness, but the 
players have no hospitalization 
schemes," O’Grady said, point- 
ing out that charity should begin 
at home. “Jim Neuord mangled 
an arm in a water-skiing ac- 
cident and that injury wiped out 
bis savings and his career. Jack 
Newton walked into an airplane 
propeller. That the tour doesn't 
have adequate insurance is an 
embarrassment. 

“We’re allowed three releases 
each season to play in events 
opposite official PGA 
tournaments," O'Grady, who 
was once a European pro- 
fessional, explained. “If you're 
part of Beman's pseudo-elite 
social dub .he’ll gram you more 
than three but he II expect you to 


respond by playing in a tour- 
nament of his choice later on. 
The dinosaurs (the top few

strikes an answering chord in 
the memories of Bntisb golfers 
who recall that Mr Beman, some 
years ago, attempted to make 
American tournaments on both 
sides of the British Open 
“designated" ones so that it 
would be impossible for players 
like Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson 
and Johnny Miller either to 
holiday or do business in the 
United Kingdom detrimental to 
the US tour. 

That idea has long since gone, 
but both critics and supporters 
of Beman believe that his insis- 
tence that more and more

courses" means that the tour 
here will eventually control 
most tour sites, and when that 
happens they say “watch out".

BOXING 

Rodney’s 

toughest 

encounter 

By Srikamar Sen. 
Boxing Correspondent 

Prince Rodney, the British 
light-middleweight champion, 
wUJ have to be at his sharpest to 
resist the challenge of Chris 
Pyatt, of Leicester, at the Albert 
Hall tonight. It is a contest full 
of interesting possibilities and 
much depends od Rodney’s 
mental attitude. Pyatt is young, 
keen and ready for the fray. 

Rodney has been showing 
signs of weariness after a long, 
hard haul to reach the top. 
Turning professional in 1977, be 
had to battle all the way. He 
suffered a first-round knockout 
by Hero! Graham, then after 
winning the title he received an 
eye injury in sparring and was 
forced to give up the title. He 
won it back last May from 
Jimmy Cable by knocking out 
the Orpington boxer in the first 
round. But be looked lethargic 
in his fort two contests when 
winning his Lonsdale Bell out- 
right against Mick Courtney and 
when losing a 10-rounder to 
Adam Geoige, a lively young 
American. 

PyatLon the other bandjs the 
most improving British boxer. 
A Commonwealth gold medal 
winner, and at 23 four years 
younger than Rodney, he is at 
his peak. In his 15 bouts be has 
been beaten only once, on a cut 
eye. 

Both men are hard punchers, 
Rodney perhaps the heavier. 
Both can be hit. but then again 
Rodney, perhaps, the less so, 
being the cagier after 37 con- 
tests, 31 wins and five defeats. 
They have a common opponent, 
the stylish and durable Brian 
Anderson, from Sheffield. Both 
Rodney and Pyatt had to get off 
the floor to beat Anderson, 
Rodney to stop him, Pyatt to 
win on points. They may have 
to get off the floor again tonight. 

It will be very much a 
question of who lands' the first 
solid punch to gain the advan- 
tage. 1C according to his way, 
Pyatt comes looking for for Die 
champion he could be on the 
end or a looping left band of the 
sort that sent Cable sailing 
through the air. If Rodney backs 
away and looks tentative, 
Pyatt’s sharper two-handed 
punchingcould have him on the 
canvas. To win Rodney will 
have to do the damage early for 
in the later stages Pyati's youth 
could telL 


The upper tier of the stand, 
under the new plan, will provide 
seats for 180 vice-presidents, 
wh3e below the bar and buffet 
will be put together again. I am 
not sure, however, that all vice- 
presidents, not as a dass of men 
renowned for their agility, will

height and riktanw from the 
Stragglers' Bar. 

As all readers who know the 
Taanton ground will immedi- 
ately recognize, the fate of “The 
Stragglers" that single-floor. 


tatty, beloved little btrildmg, is of 
much importance. It has had 
many different official names, 
but it began life as the property 
of the Somerset Stragglers CC. 
and you can always tell a 
Taunton habitue in the morning 
on the nod, “Stragglers at one 
o’clock then." 

The Stragglers is not a fire 

hazard. It has been judged that if 
fire should strike, even the most 
convivial straggler should be 
able to take the few steps 
necessary to escape the holo- 
caust, even if he is lying on the 
floor and holding on. Besides, as 
Rex Frost explained, there is no 
point in wasting money knock- 
ing it down, when it will collapse 
of Its own accord any season 
now. 

So for a while yet Sam, the 
barman there, and I will be. able 
to bold oar secretive, heretical 
Yorkshire conferences there, 
and if we are in the middle of 
one. talking of Boycott, when the 
roof descends npoo us, it wfll be 
felt, especially among vice-presi- 
dents, that we will have got no 
more than Yocks foremen de- 
serve.

The home-made 
insurance policy 


By Richard Streeton 


Northamptonshire, who last 
summer bad only three locally- 
born players in the side, are to 
organize a new coaching scheme 
to find home-grown talent 
within their own borders. It is an 
exciting concept aimed at insur- 
ing the county's future and 
coincides with the completion 
of Stephen Coverdale’s first year 
as secretary-manager to the 
dub. 

“We are a county with limited 
financial and population re- 
sources and the young players 
have not always been coming 
through," Coverdale explains. 
Brian Reynolds, the former 
Northamptonshire batsman and 
latterly chief coach, will now 
have his rote expanded to ensure 
a closer liaison between the local 
cricket association, the dubs 
and the schools, right down to 
boys of nine and 10. 

Coverdale, who is 31 and a 
qualified solicitor, is one of the 
new breed of young county 
administrators, who are helping 
cricket adjust to modem eco- 
nomic necessities*. He won 
hisBIue at Cambridge, playing 
I four times against Oxfordjand - 
' later understudied David 
Bairstow as Yorkshire 
wicketkeeper before he joined 
■the BBC as sports editor of 
Radio Leeds in 1982. Last 
spring he moved to North- 
amptonshire, succeeding Ken 
Turner, who served the county 
as an official for 36 years, the 
last 25 as secretary. 

“It is our hope that the 
comprehensive development we 
are planning for our coaching 
set-up will benefit not only the 
county dub but tbe game locally 
as well,” he says. "T sometimes 
fear for cricket standards. The 
reservoir of talent seems 
shallower than in the past This 
coincides, too, with a period 
when it is necessary for stan- 
dards and facilities in first-class 
cricket to be higher than ever 
before. We owe that to our 
members, supporters and 
sponsors." 

Last summer Northampton- 
shire held nets for about 80 
cricketers aged between 16 and 
22 who had written for trials. 
“Yet you could count on the 
fingers of one hand those with 
the basic ability who could be 
recommended justifiably to try 
and make the grade." he said. 

Coverdale said North- 
amptonshire had been planning 
to lighten up their coaching 


arrangements for some time. A 
fresh impetus had come from 
the emphasis placed by the 
TCCB’s recent Palmer Report 
on the need to do this on a 
nationwide basis. 

“My personal view is that a 
great deal of the Palmer Report 
will only be regarded as a basis 
for discussion on the game's 
future structure. But 1 also feel 
that there is no doubt that they 
are absolutely right about the 
need for coaching to be co- 
ordinated better." 

Coverdale has three specific 
areas of responsibility at North- 
ampton: the club’s administra- 
tion. fund-raising and 
promotion, and cricket manage- _ 
meat. 

At Northamptonshire he has 
problems unique among county 
administrators with a head- 
quarters ground shared by the. 
town's Football League club, 
with both leasing their playing 
area from an ancient trust. 
“Inevitably the football club's 
presence imposes a limitation 
on the development we might 
try to do as a county cricket 
club." 

Northamptonshire, with 
some 2.000 members and a 
turnover of only £400,000. are 
among the poorer counties and 
fund-raising remains a nagging 
worry for Coverdale. No other 
county is watching more closely 
the current examination by the 
TCCB into whether a propor- 
tion of the ancillary rights 
available to counties staging 
Test matches should be paid to 
clubs without the opportunity 
for such income. 

Larger catering opportunities, 
hospitality boxes and advertis- 
ing boards which can be sold 
with a guarantee of television 
exposure, all bring extra income 
from Tests which is not there for 
counties such as Northampton- 
shire. "It is a delicate matter and 
we appreciate Test match 
grounds must have the best 
facilities because Test cricket is 
so important to us alL" 

“On the other hand." Cover- 
dale adds, “the 17 champion- 
ship counties should be 
regarded as an entity. 
Remembering those ancillary 
rights, we at the non-Tesi match 
grounds feel we deserve a 
slightly larger piece of the cake 
from them because of the 
contribution we also make to 
the game."

A sport dud has cows for a 
crowd and a dub like the 
Deanmarsh Martians has prob- 
ably not attracted Mr Packer's 
keen eye jest yet: but Australian 
baseball is not worried. 

It is, in fact, growing at 3. 
fairly steady rate, creeping out 
from the dries through the 
so barbs to the bush and now, of 
all places. Northern Territory 
has taken op America's summer 
pastime - a curious sight on the 
dust-blown wastes south of Dar- 
win. 

Much farther south of Darwin 

the sport that made Babe Ruth 
famous has Victoria in a rice- 
like grip of excitement as the 
state has jnst won Australia's 
equivalent of die World Series, 
die Claxtoa Shield. Victoria 
defeated Western Australia last 
Saturday by five runs to two, to 
take tbe best-of-three series and 
cement their reputation as the 
country's finest. 

The teams wore caps, the 
catcher had mitts, and die 
pitcher knew how to throw a 
curve ball; bat, frankly, the 
similarity to one of those great 
showdowns between tbe Yan-.

kees and tbe Dodgers ended 
there. 

For one thing, when a huge hit 
was fouled oat into die darkened 
depths of the stadiam, officials 
were forced to appeal for the 
ball's ret an. At $10 a tall, they 

cannot afford to lose one, and, as 
if to prove on cue that baseball is 
still an esoteric taste in this 
cricket-ia&toated country, the 
ABC television transmission of 
the final was interrupted fey a 
quick operatic bora* of Don 

GfovaniiL Em harassed produc- 
ers later acknowledged their 
mistake, bat some thought they 
might actually be vying for a 
broader viewing base. 

Curiously, for all the sport's 
low to completely submerged 
profile, baseball bats have been 
wielded fa Australia for almost a 
century and not Just to kill' 
cockroaches. A rush of Califor- 
nia gold diggers to the fields of 
Victoria inthe 1850s effectively 




imported the sport and h was 
taken np by tbe locals in 1894 
when the New South -Wales 
Baseball Association was 
formed. 

The Claxtoo Shield was in- 
stigated in 1934 and has been 
played for ever since with only a 
break for the Second World 
War. Norrie CJiurton's perma- 
nent tribute to the sport in which 
he excelled for Sooth Australia. 
If it seems odd that anyone 
bothered to excel in baseball, it 

should be added that he was also 
a champion in cycling, athletics, 
hockey, cricket and Australian 
Rotes footbalL 

' Baseball is now played by 
100,000 people. The BeUarine 
Bears do it, the Cobc Rebels 
play it and even the world- 
renowned Chappells tried it, 
much to tbe co nste rnation of 
Ibeir cricketing father. “I had an 
equal love of cricket and base- 
ball when I was a Idd," 1 an 
Chappell, the former Australian 
Test captain and rabid Yankee 
fan, said. “It certainly helped 
Greg and myself in putting away 
the fulnesses-" 


Chappell, it may prosper the 
cause of sporting trivia to note, 
played far South Australia in the 
Claxtoo Shield in the mid- 
sixties and retains a great 
affection for the sport “It suits 
the Aussie nature so weir, he 
said. "Tbe crowd can make some 
noise, sink some beer, and really 
get on the opposition" -what 
there is of the crowd, it should be 
added. 

The Claxtoa Shield final was 
an exception, staged at the 
magnificent Party field with its 
fibreglass mound and flood- 
lights and at least 2.000 spec- 
tators packed behind home 
plate. 

Usually the fields are a little 
more spartan, running tbe gamut 
of ingenuity right down to sheep 
paddock, and with a crowd 
correspondingly varied. “We 
used to play on parklands where 
yon had to be careful of the cow 
dung", Chappell said. “And 
often we would have to stop in 
the middle of a game when a cow 
wandered into centre field." 

Not surprisingly, admin- 
istrators of the amateur sport 


are keen to sever any counectkfB 
with the American version of tHe 

game. They see native resistance ' 

to a sport naturally pursued by 
balking gnm-chewers with 
multi-million dollar take-homes 
when all tbe Claxton winners 
take home is the shield. 

Touches of Australian 
authenticity are being actively 
sought tat THe fact remains 
that any truly prodigious pros- 
pect, like New Sooth Wales's 
Mark Shipley, is whisked across j 
the Pacific before cricket can ■v 
snare him. Shipley is one of a 
bandful of Australians who have 
made a professional career, 
albeit in the minor leagues, with 
the Los Angeles Dodgers. 

Gary O'Brien, president of the 
Victorian provincial baseball 
league with 190 dabs on hjs 
books, reckons the very 
“compactness" of Australian 
baseball saves it from the worst 
- excesses endured by the United A 
Stated. “We have no drug prob- 
lem at all m the sport," be said. 
“The worst that happens here is 
someone drinking three hems 
too many and needing a ride 
home from Us mates."

than a handful ax the. start,

broken in the process of being 
out and Gower's recent run of 
feilures having continued. To 
make matters worse, Ellison 
as well as Botham, was miss* 
mg from the England side. 

Gooch and Gatting bad 
been together for 1 2 overs and 
were looking capable of pull- 
ing England round from a Stan

made to hook a bouncer from 
Marshall, To be " fair to the 
West Indians, they had been 
1 rationing the short stuff and 
this was a perfectly &ir bait 

- Gatling simply backed his 
chance of hitting it for four, 
but it was a shade too fast for 
him and the bounce a fraction 
too steep. 

Gatting departed, the leg

Patterson: early blows 

It was thought better to give 
Botham more time in which to 
get fit for Frida/s Test match, 
which the physiotherapist is 
hopeful he will be. Ellison, 
who has a slightly strained 
side and some prickly heat - a 
niggle and an itch - has been 
bowling well enough for no 
chances to be taken with him 
either. Rather than take the 
opportunity of including Ed- 
monds as well as Emburey and 
Willey, thereby fielding three 
spinners. England opted for 
Foster, Thomas and Taylor, 
an improbable trio of faster 
bowlers. 

Patterson, opening the 


bowling with Gamer, yorfced 
Robinson in his first over and 
had Gower caught at first slip 
..in bis second. It was 
spectacular start to the long- 
legged Jamaican's internation- 
al career. Though not as tali as 
Gamer and Walsh, Patterson 
is well over 6 ft and looks 
strong with h. Mostly he 
pitched the ball well up, 
partly, no doubt, because the 
groundsman seemed to have 
produced a less bouncey pitch 
than the last one. Patterson 
bowled genuinely if not 
ligh tellingly fast. 

Robinson was out to his 
fourth ball, as was Gower, 
aiming a somewhat wafty shot 
at the pitch of the ball. In 
Patterson's fifth over, Gooch, 
then 11, was missed at slip, a 
sharp, shoulder-high chance to 
Richards, and Gatting took a 
first nasty blow on the left 
wrist Of Gooch’s first eight 
runs ax were from edged shots 
against Gamer. And Richards 
still had Marshall and Walsh 
up his sleeve.

it is not being translated into the 
taking of wickets. 

Their present frame of mind 
is epitomized by their showing 
. in the field, which would have 
embarrassed most county sides. 
At least five chances went 
begging and any number of half- 
chances were casually left as 
siieh. Fernando, who went on to 
-make a hard-struck 56 with 
three, sixes and. six fours, was 
dropped iri the gully when four 
.by Randall, who will not be 
given an easier catch in his life. 
And if Randall is dropping 
them; then something must be 
wrong. 

When England's- tour began 
their ambition was to force Sri 
Lanka to bring in their most 
senior players, which they did 
not want to do. In fact all 
England have succeeded in do- 
ing is allowing some young 
batsmen reestablish reputations 
for themselves. Yesterday, after 
Samarasekcra had his off stump 
27 dipped by Trcmlctt with only 
. 3 seven added- to his overnight 
century, in came England's old 
friend. Mahanama. Dropped at 
ihc wicket by Rhodes when 
nine, he scored an elegant 64 
wiih nine fours and shared a 
stand of 94 with Tillekcratne. a 
1 7-year-old left-hander. 


placated by what they clearly feft 
was poor umpiring. Nicholas 
remained busy ensuring that his 
bowlers continued to channel 
their energy into the next baJL 
They appeared unhappy about a 
number of decisions by K_ T. 
Ponnambalam.the umpire, es- 
pecially Cowans after he had 
had an appeal for caught behind 
turned down when Tillekeratue 
was 28. The umpire remained 
bespectacled and unmoved. 

. Mahanama became the vic- 
tim of a minor sensation when 
tic attempted to play Lawrence 
through the covers off the back 
foot and was bowled. It was the 
first time in 688 attempts that 
Lawrence had hit the stumps on 
the tour. There was much 
slapping of hands. 

In the' 1 3th over of the day 
Madugallc. the Sri Lankan cap- 
tain. retired hurt. A rising ball 
from Agnew deflected from 
glove to fece and resulted in a 
fraciured thumb, four stitches in 
his upper lipand the sheddingof 
a lot of blood. 

In a similar incident three 
years ago in a Test match in 
New Zealand Rumcsh 
Rainayakc. one of Sri Lanka's 
opening bowlers, fainted at the 
sight of John Wright's blood.

Top clubs ready 
to spell out 
reform plans 


Xevin Sheetfy (above), the Everton 
andRepnbllc of Ireland midfield 
player, could be out of action for the 
rest of the season following an 
unexpected cartilage operation. 
Sheedy limped out of a recent game 
against Tottenham Hotspur with a 
knee injury which was thought to be 
ligament trouble; but it Sen was 
diagnosed that he required an opera- 
tion. 

His loss comes as a blow to the 
League champions, as they chase the 


FA Cnp and League doable. Sheedy 
was a regular in last season's 
championship and Cap teams. Kevin 
Richardson, who deputized for him in 
the 1984 FA Cnp final, will fill the 
gap, bat the Everton manager, How- 
ard Kendall, will have to think 
seriously about whether he needs to go 
into the transfer market to strengthen 
a squad which is already missing its 
first- choice centre half, Derek 
Monntikld, because of injury. 


United’s best assets are frozen 


The postponement yesterday 
of Manchester United's FA Cup 
fifth-round tie against West 
Ham United at Upton Park 
must have been well received a! 
Old TraffonL The tie. due to be 
played tonight, has been put 
back a fortnight because of next 
week's internationals and. 
should United play in the 
meantime, Bryan Robson and 
Norman Whiteside could be- 
come available. 

The pair will be paying 
particular attention to the long- 
range weather forecast over the 
next few days. United have two 
games scheduled between now 
and the new Cup date. Monday, 
March 3, against West 
Bromwich Albion and 
Southampton, while Robson 
and Whiteside have one and two 
games respectively to go to the 
end of their suspensions. 

United, whose success in the 
League championship is seri- 
ously threatened in particular by 
Evenon’s rush of form, will 
again be giving the Cup their

special attention. Their ability 
to overcome West Ham. whom 
this observer considers to have 
ideal credentials for Cup success 
this season, will depend largely 
upon the type of driving mid- 
field qualities that Robson and 
Whiteside can offer. 

All the other outstanding FA 
Cup ties, excluding ihat at 
Liverpool last night, were post- 
poned as the . freezing weather 
refused to relent Aston Villa's 
rearranged Milk Cup semi-final 
first leg against Oxford United, 
which was due to be staged 
tonight, was also put into cold 
storage for next Tuesday. 
Tottenham Hotspur’s tie against 
Everton. which was postponed 
from Sunday until today, has 
been further delayed until T ues- 
day. March 4. 

- This will intensify 
Tottenham's activity that week 
since they play Liverpool in a 
televised League match at White 
Han Lane the preceding Sunday 
and, should they dispose of 


Everton. will have Arsenal or 
Luton to deal with on the 
following Saturday in the sixth 
round of the FA Cup. 

Derby County are faced with 
similarly demanding weeks. Al- 
ready five fixtures behind some 
of their promotion rivals in the 
third division, they could least 
afford the postponement of their 
tie against Sheffield Wednesday 
until next Monday. Because of it 
they face four matches in eight 
days. 

Last night's postponed fifth- 
round replay between Millwall 
and Southampton at the Den 
and tomorrow’s between Brigh- 
ton and Peterborough at the 
Goldstone Ground were pul 
back - optimistically - by just 24 
hours. There will be a morning 
inspection at Millwall.

The first division dubs are 
bolding out a carrot worth at 
least £ 10 million to persuade the 
rest of the Football League to 
support their plans for reform. 
That is how much could be lost 
in the event ofiailure to reach 
agreement is the long-running 
controversy by the end of the 
season. 

The League would struggle to 
tempi a new sponsor to put up 
£3 million for a three-year deal, 
and television would be reluc- 
tant to enter into a multi-million 
pound agreement while the 
threat of a breakaway still exists. 

Even though the top 22 clubs 
would claim SO per cent of such 
deals under their restructuring 
package, what would be left is 
still enough, they insist, to bring 
the rest of the 92 dubs into line. 

“The sooner this situation is 
resolved the better for all 
concerned," their spokesman, 
Phil Carter (the Everton chair- 
man). said. "Football will go on 
next season come what may. But 
sponsors must be anxious to 
know wfaai is going to happen, 
especially with respect to tele- 
vision, who themselves will 
warn to see this debate 
resolved." 

The first division dubs, 
putting on a united front, have 
spelt out the battle plan to get 
their own way. First at the 
extraordinary general meeting 
on March 4, they wifi vote down 
the proposals by the Manage- 
ment Committee which do not 
give them enough power. Then 
they will call their annual meet- 
ing, probably in April, to put 
forward their detailed 10-point 
package. 

If that is not acceptable to the 
rest of the League they will 
seriously consider a 
breakaway .The chairman of As- 
ton Villa, Doug Ellis, warned of 
the consequences and attempted 
to reassure the rest of the League 
that the elite dubs are not acting 
selfishly.**! feel we have shown 

Voller’s 

Mexico 

dilemma 

Bonn (Renter) — Rudj Vtfller. 
the West German forward who 
has just undergone groin sur- 
gery, expressed serious doubts 
yesterday that he would recover 
in time to spearhead his 
country's attack in the World 
Cap finals fa Mexico in June. 

"My taking part in the World 
Cup is In great danger," VdUer 
told the West German sport 
news agency SID in an Interview 
in the Belgian town of Leaven 
where he had the operation. 

In a league match for Werder 
Bremen tot November, t oller 
suffered what doctors first 
thought was a torn muscle. But 
after several weeks the injury 
had failed to heal. 

• PARIS: France have named 
two new players in the side to 
play Northern Ireland at Pair 
des Princes next Wednesday. 
The manager, Henri Michel, 
who plans to take three goal- 
keepers to Mexico, picked 
Bruno Martini, of Auxerre. 

Joel Bats remains the number 
one gonlkeepiog choice with 
Sochaux's Albert Rust as cover, 
although he is not included 
because of injury. 

The other newcomer is Jean- 
Pierre Papin, Bruges's 21 -year- 
old centre forward 


great responsibility m our dis- 
cussions about the future of the 
game." he said. “It’s not a case 
of 22 dubs saying goodbye to 
the rest and leaving them to 
paddle their own canoe, even 
though we would grab 100 per 
cent of the income if we did. 

**Wc have tried to help them 
as much as possible and we 
sincerely hope that we can 
continue to resolve this problem 
in a democratic fashion. "But 
Carter warned that the first 
division resolve was hardening 
saying: “If things stay the same 
there is no way the major dubs 
wifi allow themselves to be 
dragged down lq obscurity. We 
will not let that happen." 

As the second division dubs 
seem certain to support the first 
division proposals, it could 
mean a bleak future for the 
associate members of the third 
and fourth divisions, who meet 
in London on Wednesday to 
plan their own campaign. 

Dooley is put 
in command 

Derek Dooley, who first came 
to prominence when he scored 
46 goals in 30 league games for 
Sheffield Wednesday in the 
1951-52 season and then trag- 
ically lost a leg less than a year 
Later, has returned to the lime- 
light with his appointment as 
managing director of Sheffield 
United. 

It was 33 years ago almost to 
the day when he played against 
Preston in a first division match 
and fractured a leg which had to 
be amputated 

He refused to become despon- 
dent and with Wednesday be- 
came youth coach, development 
fund organizer and team man- 
ager before moving across the 
city to become Sheffield 
United's commercial manner 
Later he became United's first 
paid director in 1983 and his 
Latest appointment at the age of 
57 means that he has filled 
almost every position in the 
game.

Heyhoe Flint resigns after 25 years 


Rachael Heyhoe Flint, 
most famous woman 
yesterday ended her 
25-year association with the 
sport and reopened the verbal 
battle over links with Sooth 
Africa. __ ‘ _ 

Mrs Heyhoe Flint, who 
• played in 51 Teals and oae-day 
internationals, said sbe would 
i tot serve as public relations 
officer for the Wooten's Cricket 
Association and then accused 
her former colleagues of 
Mirpoarfey". 

Her decision arises from the 
WCA's baa from this summer's 
internationals imposed on 12 
players who went oh a private 
tour to Sooth Africa m Decem- 
ber- Although Mrs Heyhoe Flint 
ms not part of the tour, she was 

in Soflth Africa at the same time 
to celebrate the 25 to amriversary 


of her first England appearance. 

She said yesterday. “I an not 
objecting to the baa, bat the way 
it has been dome. This latest tom* 
was the fifth of its kfad to Sooth 
Africa is the last 10 years. A 
ttamber of players who are in 
toft summer’s Test reckoning 
have been on previras tarns, bat 
they are not ba n ned. 

“The ndlng should either 
have applied to everyone who 
has ever toured South Africa or 
be a wanting for. the frame. But 
the way they have done It Is 
hypocritical and 1 cannot be a 
part of it" 

Mrs Heyhoe Hint, a former 
WCA c h a i rman, added: “Sev- 
eral officers were weD aware the 
torn was being planned, yet no 
warning was issued. X think the 
decision has a let to do with the 
tact tost the WCA wanted 


sponsorship for this summer's 
home series with India. They 
wanted to appease the Indians in 
cose there were- any objections 
over sporting folks with Sooth 
Africa. 

“Women’s cricket has been 
my life for 25 years and I'm sad 


Bat I feel someone had to make a 
stand.” 

Cathy Mowst, chairman tf 
the WCA, refitted Mis Heyhoe 
Flint’s charge of. hypocrisy. 
“The WCA did not know this 
tom was taking place. We but to 
pot oo 1 house m order and draw 
a line somewhere.** She con- 
firmed that the 12 banned 
players (“only one at whom was 
realistically a with a chance of 
Test selection this sammer") 
had be en gi v e n 21 days to appeal 
against the decision.

TENNIS 


Stars ask for more work 


From Richard Evans, Boca Raton, Florida 


Not 


for the first time, the 
game's officials have underesti- 
mated the professionalism of 
those top players who are so 
often accused of being self- 
indulgent and overpaid. There 
are not many people in any walk 
of life who advocate working 
longer hours for the same pay. 
but that is what Ivan Lendl and 
Mats Wilander are suggesting. 

The two lop seeds here at the 
Lipton International Players 
Championships have both stat- 
ed publicly this week that they 
would like to see the format for 
this tournament changed to 
best-of-five-set matches from 
the first round in both singles 
and doubles. CurrenilyaU men's 
matches except the singles final 
are played as best-of-ihrce. 

"The idea seems to be to tum 
this event into a fifth Grand 
Slam championship to rank 
alongside Wimbledon and the 
other three" said Lendl “But it 
will never be considered that 
important by the players unless 
they use a besi-of-five-sei for- 
mat The Association of Tennis 
Professionals and the Pro Coun- 
cil thought that by keeping the 
matches shorter they would 
make it more attractive to the 
top players. But I can assure you 
precisely the opposite is true.’' 


The ATP. who are responsible 
for running this event in 
conjunction with ihe Women's 
Tennis Association (WTAV, did 
indeed think that the leading 
players would be more inclined 
to commit to a two-week event 
in an already-crowded calendar 
if their workload was kepi to a 
minimum. But. strangely for a 
body made up exclusively of 
current and former players, they 
underestimated their colleagues' 
pride of performance. Top play- 
ers know full well that upsets are 
more likely to occur over three 
sets because the lower-ranked 
players arc usually unable to 
sustain a hoi streak over the full 
distance. 

"Yes. you could say best of 
five is beneficial to me in that 
respect." admitted Lendl can- 
didly. “Bui I am prepared to go 
out and work for it even if it 
means many more hours on 
court." No doubt tournament 
director Butch Buchbolz will be 
listening hard to these opinions, 
because everything he has tried 
io create here, starting with the 
128-player draw in both the 
mens’ and womens’ events and 
the rein trod uction of mixed 
doubles, has been planned with 
a view io attaining Grand Slam 
recognition. 


When Buchholz’s plans first 
became known, there was much 
talk of the Lipton event 
superceding the Australian 
Open, which for the past two 
decades had been very much Ihe 
poor relation amongst the 
world’s four leading champion- 
ships- However, the Australian 
LTA. with the active support of 
Philippe Chatrier. the president 
of the International Tennis 
Federation (ITR. have worked 
hard to attract better entries at 
Kooyong 

Now. under the guidance of 
their far-thinking president 
Brian Tobin, plans have been 
finalized to build a new Na- 
tional Tennis Centre close to the 
Melbourne Cricket Ground and 
Tab in. who arrived here yes- 
terday. tells me that ground is 
about to be broken. The new site 
is expected io be ready to stage 
the Australian Open in 1988. 

None of that worries

content to have his event des- 
ignated as a fifth Grand Slam.

PM urged to 
intervene in 
Bruno bout 

By Sriknnur Sen 
Boxing Correspondent 

Anti-apartheid proaps 
stepped up their campaign yes- 
terday to stop Genie Coe (zee 
boxing Frank Bruno in a final 
eliminator for the World Boxing 
Association heavyweight tide. 
They have sent a telegram to the 
Prime Minister asking her to 
intervene. 

The chairman of the Black 
British Conference against 
Apartheid in Sport, Paul 
Stephenson, has also written a 
letter to Coetzee, who is at 
present in London, asking him 
to show his opposition to apart- 
heid fay calBog off the boot. 

The letter says “Your pres- 
ence in this country constitutes a 
flagrant breach of the British 
Government's commitment to 
the Gleneagies Agreement, 
which dearly states the need to 
take effective action against all 
sporting competitions and con- 
tacts with Sooth African sports 
representatives and teams.” The 
letter goes on to say: ** Yon say 
yon are opposed to apartheid. 
We challenge yon to dem- 
onstrate this by calling Off yonr 
fight with Bruno and joining the 
growing international campaign 
for sanctions 'against yonr 
Government.” 

Mr Stephenson said that the 
three anti-apartheid groups 
spearheading the campaign 
would he seeking the support of 
Opposition party leaders. Neil 
Kinnock. David Steel and David 
Owen, and Commonwealth 
heads of stare. A protest rally for

Getting a grip on the new grand prix season: Ricardo Patrese testing the tyres on his Brabham in Rio 

WHERE SPORT MAKES A NONSENSE OF SECTARIAN INTRANSIGENCE 

Ireland’s blazer badge of unity 


For an Englishman attempting to 
understand the complexities of the 
Irish sectarian problems, never mind 
for a foreigner, sport in Ulster and the 
Republic provides a strange contrast 
It is almost totally united -and 
successful. 

Just consider the array of stare: 
Sean Kelly and Stephen Roche in 
cycling, both of the Republic; Dennis 
Taylor (snooker) and Joey Dunlop 
(motor cycling), world champions 
from Ulster, Barry McGuigan. bridg- 
ing the terrorist borders with his 
United Nations flag; Garth 
McGimpsey, the British Open ama- 
teur golf champion; Pat Jennings and 
Norman Whiteside, in football; and 
in a the hies Eamonn Coghlan and the 
brilliant new young xrnler. Marcus 
O'Sullivan. Ireland, north and south, 
spends more on sport per head of the 
population than the United King- 
dorm 

RUC man member of 
the Republic’s team 

Irish sport consistently makes non- 
sense of sectarian intransigence. Ken 
Stanford, a member of the Royal 
Ulster Constabulary, was a member 
of the shooting team in the Olympic 
Games in Moscow... for the Irish 
Republic. David Judge, a Dublin 
hockey stalwart for many years with 
120 Republican caps, played for 


Great Britain in the 1964 Olympics. 
The Irish Olympic Committee ac- 
cepts only those governing bodies 
which are 32-county based. 

So almost all Ulster competitors, 
and many Republicans, have the 
option of two Olympic committees, 
Irish or British, because all but a 
handful of sport such as soccer mid 
athletics, are all-Ireland, embracing 
the six counties. Catholic and Protes- 
tant scrum down side by side for the 
Triple Crown, or against each other 
for Ballymena and Cork. In Gaelic 
football, now into its second century, 
Antrim is as enthusiastic as Galway, 


BOBSLEIGHING 

Britain’s 

injury 

setbacks 

By Chris Moore 

Britain's team, led by the 
World Cup combination bronze 
medal winner. Nick Phipps, are 
in the wars on the eve or the 
world championships at 
Konigscc. West Germany. 

Phipps took only his first 
practice run yesterday before 
returning to his sick bed suffer- 
ing alt the symptoms of flu. His 
brakeman. Alan Ceams. who 
missed last weekend’s World 
Cup four-man race in Lake 
Placid because of a neck injury, 
has fully recovered, but Britain s 
no. 2 driver. Tom Dc La Hunty. 
and his brakeman. Keith Power, 
ended up in hospital yesterday 
and are both out of the two-man 
competition. 

De La Hunty. a PT instructor 
in the RAF. who is stationed in 
West Germany, overturned on 
his opening ran and had to be 
carried away on a stretcher with 
shoulder and rib injuries. He 
had already broken a bone in the 
same shoulder when he crashed 
in Lake Placid last week, and in 
addition to popping a nb carti- 
lage yesterday, also needed five 
stitches in a cut arm. 

Power, a member of Phipps’s 
four-man crew, was deputizing 
for Dc La Hunty’s regular 
brakeman. John Edwards, who I 
is also down with flu. Power 1 
broke two fingers in his left hand 
and. with his arm in plastn. will 
take no further part in the 
championships. 

Wolfgang Hoppe and his 

brakeman. Dietmar 

Schauerhammer. have to be the 
men to beat after completing 
their collection of major medals 
with the European title in Igls. 
Hoppe is the reigning world 
champion, having won the 
crown in Cervinia last year, and 
also holds (he Olympic two-man 
and four-man titles /ham the 
I 984 Winter Games in Sarajevo. 

But there can be no repeat of 
the East Germans' first three 
places in Igls when Bernhard 
Lehmann took the European 
silver and Detlef Richter the 
bronze. Only (wo teams from 
each nation compete m the 
world event, so the bronze 
medal, at least, will be under 
contention this weekend. 

It is II years since any 
country other than East Ger- 
many and Switzerland won the 
world two-man gold medal. 
Erich Scharcr. Switzerland’s 
world champion in 197$. 1979 
and 1982. and winner of the 
Olvmpic title in I98D. has 
perhaps the biggest incentive to 
challenge Hoppe and company 
in Konigseo. If he sticks to his 
plans this will be his last major 
championship before he retires. 


even if the “troubles’’ have created 
some division between supporters 
since 1969. In 19,56 the Irish Olympic 
Committee had* a silver and three 
bronze medal winners in boxing, all 
from Ulster. Since 1964, the mazer 
badge has not carried the tricolour. 

When Barry McGuigan defended 
his featherweight title in Dublin on 
Saturday, the banner of co. Down 
supporters was raised in triumph. 
The irony of the British citizenship of 
McGuigan, the boy from Republican 
co. Monaghan - which was required 
for him to be registered as a 
professional with the British Boxing 
Board of Control - is that it was 
granted on account of his Ulsterman 
grandfather, James McGuigan, a 
Catholic who was arrested ami im- 
prisoned for three years by the 
dreaded Black and Tans. 

Sport in Ireland is tormented, but 
not deflected, by sectarian violence. 
In the fitness gymnasium in Lisburn 
run by Mary Peters, the 1972 
pentathlon gold medal winner, there 
sands a life-size sculpture in fibre 
glass of Mary in shot-putting pose. 
Twice, before casting, the plaster was 
difllren off the framework when 
explosions rocked the studio of the 
local sculptress. A protestant cousin 
ofMcGuigan’s wife was murdered by 
a terrorist bomb, and when die 
Catholic champion was married at a 
Protestant church, his bride’s bou- 
quet was placed on a dead girl's grave. 

“Sport won't bring peace”, admits 
Mary Peters, the inspirational figure 
after whom one of Ulster’s two 
synthetic running trades is named. 
“But everybody, whatever their alle- 
giance, supports our sports champi- 
ons, and sport helps lead to greater 
understanding. At school. Catholic 
never meets Protestant other than 
through sport or music or drama.” 

Mary is a driving figurehead in die 
annual Dale Farm Ulster Games, 
which with 16 sports has six more 
than the Commonwealth Games, for 
which this summer in June h forms 
an important preliminary. The Ulster 

HOCKEY 


Games has a budget of £75,000, a 
20,000 total audience, and provides 
one of the few opportunities for 
international sport for Irish competi- 
tors. The presence of overseas stare 
such as Ovett and Budd is invaluable 
incentive, although security scares 
have dissuaded some English com- 
petitors from attending, and last year 
Welsh and Scots swimmers stayed 
away through parental anxiety. 

“Of course, 1 too am anxious about 
security”, Mary says, “because I'm 
seen as responsible for encouraging 
people to come here. Yet I live here 
still because I love the people” - she 
was bom in England - “and because 
sport has brought lbe people together. 
The Ulster Games are the most 
exciting thing I've been involved in. 
It helps the Irish not to feel like 
second dass citizens. It's so expensive 
for us to cross the water.” 

Commonwealth Games 
is the ambition 

The proximity of Birmingham is 
one reason why Kevin O’Flanagan, 
Ireland's member of the International 
Olympic Committee, should vote for 
the British next October for the games 
of 1992. 

Mary’s dream is that before she 
retires Northern Ireland might be 
able to stage the Commonwealth 
Games. Thai must be doubtful with 
the security costs, and the . lack of 
hotels, a 50-metre swimming pool 
and a velodrome. Yet it is not a 
dream without hope. The Northern 
Ireland Sports Council, under the 
energetic leadership of George Glas- 
gow, is seeing the benefit of a peak 
m vestment in 1982-83, and with its 
annual Government grant of £1 
million now has 1 6 leisure centres. 

“The problems throughout the 
seventies did affect winter evening 
indoor sport, such as basketball, table 
tennis and judo" Glasgow says. “But 
in the last five years there's an 
acceptance of the situation as 


‘normaT, so the setback has been I 
greatly reduced.” 

The Republic's Sport Council, 
Cospoir, under the leadership of the 
former 1,500 metres gold medal 
winner, Ron Delaney, and chief 
executive, Barry O’HooUhan, has a 
budget of £1.6 million, and it.grants 
aid to 63 national governing bodies. 

Delaney is hopeful that the recently 
appointed new Sports Minister, Sean 
Barrett who sits in Cabinet and is a 
former Gaelic football player, will be 
able to implement a national lottery 
which was proposed in a Govern- 
ment White Paper and could generate 
£10 million for sport and the building 
of a major new Dublin sports centre. 

The Gaelic Athletic Association 
also cultivates the promotion of 
community activities in the cultural 
arena as well as its traditional football 
and hurting, in which it has 20.000 
clubs and more playing members 
than ever. Yet like soccer in the 
United Kingdom it finds itself under 
threat from the wider choice now 
available to young people, hence its 
branching out into a wider social 
arena. 

Interest in soccer rises and fells in 
relation to die success of the two 
World Cup teams. Jack Charlton, it is 
hoped, will revive the Republic, while 
the north is riding a crest following 
their second successive qualification 
for the finals. The English at one time 
were reluctant to travel to Belfast, but 
the ice was broken when Jimmy Hill 
took over an invitation international 
team including Bobby Chariton. The 
Scots still, surprisingly, make a fuss 
about going. Another of the anoma- 
lies of Irish sport is to be found with' 
Derry City, who withdrew from the 
Irish League in the early days of the 
troubles to join the League Of Ireland 
(Republican), and enjoy crowds of 
10,000. Their board of directors has a 
prominent Protestant 


British men to show the

The management committee 
of the Hockey Association, the 
controlling body for the game in 
England, have voted for the 
participation of a Great Britain 
rather than an England team in 
future World Cup competitions. 
At present the three constituent 
members of the Great Britain 
Hockey Board. England. Wales 
and Scotland, take pan sepa- 
rately in World Cup and Euro- 
pean Cup tournaments and once 
in four years play as one team in 
the Olympic Games. 

The new proposal is for the 
formation of a Great Britain 
Men's Hockey Association for 
the purpose of playing as one 
team in the World Cup. the 
Olympic Games, ihe Inter- 


continental Cup and the 
Champions' Trophy tour-

ATHLETICS 

Turner’s 

attack 

exposes 

flaws 

By Pat Botcher 

Athletics Correspondent 

The onlv time that the rival 
factions in British athletics 
administration join forces is u> 
refute criticism that they are still 
so far apart. There has been a 
certain amount of amal- 
gamation of i he British Amateur 
Athletic Board and the Amateur 
Athletic Association, in order to 
administer the huge sums of 
money coming in to the sport. 

However, officials of both 
organizations adopted a strong 
defensive attack yesterday to- 
wards Mike Turner's criticism 
of fixture dashes, when the team 
was announced for the UK v 
Soviet Union match at Cosford 
next Tuesday. That match 
comes onlytwo days after the 
European 'indoor champion- 
ships in Madrid and it wall be a 
surprise if the ID. out of the 
leant of 20 for Madrid, who 
have also agreed to compete ip 
the match against the Soviet 
Union, will be fit to do so after 
an arduous weekend. 

Vet then: was little said 
yesterday that stood up to 
Turner's assessment, as team 
manager, that such a clash was 
the result of “crisis 
management”. Turner's broader 
criticism was in fact directed 
towards the continuing polarity 
of athletics administration in 
this country. 

As a former international 
athlete, a Cambridge lecturer, 
and a disinterested pony who 
was author of a report on how 
British athletics administration 
should be amalgamated. Turner 
isa more than welcome addition 
io that administration. In the 
wake of his report, he was 
appointed BAAB treasurer. Yet 
he now sees a similar report to 
the one that he prepared for the 
AAA being undertaken for the 
BAAB by Dr Bill Evans, the 
former chairman. 

The contention of Nigel Coo- 
per. the BAAB secretary, that 
Evans's investigation was 
"looking into specifics", docs 
not really stand up to Turner's 
inference that this is further 
lime-wasting. The money being 
wasted on such ventures could 
be belter spent on athletes such 
as Unford Christie, the national 
indoor 200 'metres champion. | 
who is to compete both in 
Madrid and Cosford. 

As Sebastian Coe pointed out 
recently, there is nrf way. with 
the money coming into the 
sport, that any British inter- 
national should be found want- 
ing for finance. Ycu in pursuit of 
his sporting goals. Christie has 
given up his job as a clerical 
officer and his only current 
income is from the dole.

Pcnh - The troubled Belgian 
Maxi racer. Cote D'Or. has 
recovered from whatever prob- 
lem it was that was slowing her 
down earlier this week (Barry 
Pickthall writes). Yesterday the

than any other boat in .the 
Whitbread round the world race 
fleet. She sailed io within one 
mile of ihe boat which is now in 
from. Pierre Fchlmann's UBS 
Switzerland. 

Cote D'Or. which suffered 
structural damage on both pre- 
vious legs of the 27.000-mile 
race, averaged I f ‘ri knots to 
achieve her second place - one 
knot fasicr than Lion New 
Zealand, ihe previous leader, 
which has now dropped back to 
fifth place. 


Building bigger and better for Britain 


"In my not loo humble 
opinion." Lieot-Coloncl Frank 
Weldon said, "what yon have to 
do is not make a fence that a 
horse can't jump but make one 
that gets the rider thinking." 
Weldon, director and coarse 
designer of Badminton horse 
trials, the world's most famous 
three-day event, added :*'Or. to 
pat it another way. to frigbfra 
the wits ant of the riders without 
injuring a bone on the day." 

For 20 years be has done just 
(hat. Each year riders return in 
gloom from walking the coarse 
at Badminton declaring some 
new Weldon masterpiece to be 
unjnmpahle (last year it was the 
Fairbanks Bounce), it never is. 
but the intimidation policy al- 
ways works. Last year Karen 
Stives, the American Olympic 
team gold medal winner, com- 
peted in her first Badminton. 
Reports and hearsay had al- 
ready given her a healthy re- 
spect for (he event but after 
seeing the cross-cnnntry. she 
declared it “the most serums 
course - she had ever en- 
countered and proceeded to ride 
each fence as if waiting for it ro 
attack her. 

However. Ihe awe which Bad- 
minton has traditionally in- 
spired since its first running in 
1949 was wearing thin when 
Weldon took oier (he reins in 
1965 at the request of the 
present Duke of Beaufort (two 
: years later Wvhfon became 
| director as well as course de- 
signer). In the early 1960s 
British eventing was going 
through a lean period with no 
team victories and a failing 
standard at home. The course at 
Badminton became smaller each 
year to match the lower standard 
of competitors and there was a 
corresponding drop in atten- 


dance figures. Weldon set him- 
self two targets: to design a 
coarse that would give the 
British the best chance of win- 
ning abroad and to make it 
exciting for spectators. Both 
aims, he knew, depended on the 
strength of the cross-conn try. 

"When it came to designing 
the course, by far my most 
valnabie asset was lbe fact that I 
had seen so many courses 
abroad." Weldon explained. His 
experience had been gained 
through his roles as chef 
d'equipe. judge, technical dele- 
gate and. above afL rider. He 
was 40 when he rode in bis first 
three-day event — a visiting 
general to the King's Troop 
w here Weldon was commanding 
officer, suggested that be should 
have a crack at Badminton. At 
that time his sporting activities 
were directed entirely to racing 
and all that the word badminton 
conveyed was "a high net and a 
thing with feathers on that you 
hit with a racket. The fallowing 
year (1952) saw him and two 
subalterns at Badminton. It was 
not a propitious start. "The boys 
finished well bat 1 ended up iu 
Tctbury Cottage Hospital." 

Lock changed with the pur- 
chase of the magnificent 
kilbarry , bought initially to race 
but. after being bobdayrd. di- 
verted to eventing. The pair were 
members of four European 
Championship gold medal 
teams (1953-55 and 1957). In 
1954 they were numers-up at 
Badminton and in 1955 a year’s 
leave from the army enabled him 
to concentrate entirely on 
eventing. The pair were un- 
beaten (bat year. Then the final 
arcolade. With Bertie Hill 
(Countryman III) and Laurence 
Rook (Wild Venture), they won 
the Olympic team gold medal at 



Weldon: high standards 

Stockholm in 1956 and Weldon 
took (he individual bronze. 

While competing abroad 
Weldon was faced with increas- 
ingly stiller, better designed 
courses than those at home. This 
began to give him and the other 
British riders a disadvantage 
psychologically. H also gave 
Weldon a guiding principle 
when he came to design courses. 
“1 was determined that never 
again should competitors go 
abroad and suffer the Intense 
inferiority complex which 1 did." 

In bis first tear at Badminton 
he built bigger, more imposing 
obstacles and. thinking or the 
public, be pul groups of fences 
dose together. The Willis 
Brothers, of Marlborough, con- 
structed the fences (and stilt do). 
Alan Willis and Gilbert 
Tbnrnburv are the two builders. 


“I literally couldn't do without 
them." Weldon remarked. 

In planning the course, 
Weldon refused to be hidebound 
by ihe convention that it should 
be smaller tbe year after the 
Olympics and gradually get 
bigger over the next foot years. 
-You've got to gear the course to 
the standard of the competitor." 
Em with the sophisticated 
qualifications Badminton re- 
quires. this is not always easy. 
“You know the top but not the 
bottom standard. A horse that 
has qualified in an advanced 
one-day event in Norrhinnber- 
land is probably not as good as 
one that's qualified aL say. 
Uatcombe." 

This year he admits grudg- 
ingly that with many of tbe best 
horses absent because of tbe 
world championships in May. 
tbe "general difficult) of The 
course is probably less." There 
are four new fences and several 
drastic variations to existing 
fences which have ■ kept (he 
builders busy since last Septem- 
ber. They have also moved large 
amounts of earth to create banks 
and other features. Weldon vis- 
its them several times a day. 
"It's not tike designing a 
showjumping course where tbe 
ground is fiat and yon can do it at 
borne over a glass of whisky and 
a piece of lined paper. With 
cross-country you're always got 
to think of lbe lie of the land." 

The weather is never for from 
his mind either. Only two events 
(1966 and 1975) have had to be 
cancelled in the Iasi 20 years but 
ibis is partly doe to the thorough 
preparation which goes on 
beforehand. 

Tbe work and the carefnlly 
laid plans have paid off. The 
dwindling crowds of the early 
1960s have multiplied into the

according to statistics just re- 
leased by Sam Sheppard, the 
secretary of tbe fond. This is 
well over three times as much as 
that contributed fo tbe sport by 
any oomnwztia) sponsor. 

During tbe 1986 Rat season, 
the British European Breeders’ 
Fund will contribute £519,150 
in prize money. Of that 
£386, 150 will go to the 214 EBF 
two-year-old races and the 
remainder to 65 selected weight- 
for-age races and 8 pattern or 
listed races. A further £207,862 
has been allocated to breeders’ 

prizes by the fund, which will 
also contribute £94,000 in 
owners* premiums. - 

With £100.000 in prize m oney 
already being given to National 
Hunt racing and breeders’ 
prizes, in addition to a substan- 
tial grant to veterinary research, 
the total provided by the British 
EBF will top the £!m mark. 

Racing in Ireland and France 


has also derived worthwhile 
benefits from the EBF since 
1984 while Italy and Germany 
have recently joined the scheme 
and will become full partici- 
pants in 1988. 

As a way of generating self- 
belp from within the industry, 
tbe scheme is hard to fau/L Each 
stallion owner or syndicate pays 
the average value of nomina- 
tions soldm a year into the fund 
and this qualifies all progeny of 
that stallion, conceived in the 
year in which the payment is 
made, of that stallion for the 
EBF races and other benefits as 
well as the Breeder’s Cup series 
in America. 

While it is fair to say that (he 
racing industries of the respec- 
tive countries should be in- 
debted to those stallion owners 
who have supported the EBF 
throughout it is also right to 
point out that that particular 
area of tbe market bad become 
awash with money as prices 
became more and more inflated 
and that it was the right source 
to tap. 


Nineteen Shillings to

Few if any of the racecourse Gangahal has made the long

the enthusiasm of those con- Down to contest the novice

Irish keep the 
show moving 

Only the Irish meeting at 
Downpatrick keeps the raring 
flag flying today - both Catterick 
and Warwick were called off on 
Monday. Tomorrow also looks 
likely to be a blank day in 
Britain with Win canton an early 
casualty yesterday and the meet- 
ing at Folkestone dependent on a 
9am inspection today. A coarse 
spokesman yesterday rated the 
prospects as "not very good". 

The outlook for Friday looks 
equally bleak with the stewards 
inspecting Southwell at 2J0 
today (coarse frozen) and a noon 
inspection scheduled at 
Kempibn (little snow but track 
frozen). 

Ireland could again come to the 
rescue tomorrow when a meeting 
is planned for Thuries.

Geoff Parsons, the British 
high jump record holder, and 
Steve Heard arc among a group 
of leading cast Kent athletes 
. supporting a plan to commemo- 
rate Julie Rose by the provision 
of a public running (rack in her 
home town of Ashford. 

Miss Rose, who was aged 21. 
died last November in. an air 
crash in Iowa. A British indoor 
international at (7 and three 
times English schools 1500 me- 
tres champion, she was on an 
athletics scholarship inspired 
partly by lack of facilities in cast 
Kent 


250.600 who attended last year ! 
(170.000 on crosscountry day) 
and. although the event costs 
nearly half a million pounds to 
stage, last year's profits enabled 
£100.000 to be sent to the 1 
British Horse Society, tbe 
sport's national governing body. 

When the first horse sets off 
in April around tbe course, 
Weldon will be watching anx- 
iously on tbe closed circuit 
(derision. “It's nice to see tbe 
first one get borne." Ideally, be 
likes to see more than 60 per 
cent finish and admits that last 
5 ear there were too few finishers 

Weldon does not suffer fools 
gladly. He gives orders and 
expects them to be obeyed. Hb 
forthright approach and pierc- 
ing gaze have withered many a 
reporter at the annual Bad- 
minton press conference (he is 
himself a former equestrian 
correspondent of the Sunday 
Telegraphy, but his military ' 
bearing conceals a dry sense of 
homour. When describing bb 
ideal erent horse be saM: M !(*s

sotto race, “and in human beings

Is asking no more of them than 
he has asked of himself throng h- 
ont his life whether as race rider 
(he twice won the RA Gold Cnp 
at Sandown), event rider, jndge 
or course designer. His contribu- 
tion to British eventing may 
have to wail to be put in its true 
perspective. Lotus Clarke, when 
asked abort the sport’s fatal*, 
said: “You can't build bigger 
than Badminton • and. when 
Frank stops, that'll get smaller 
because no-one else will have the 
guts to do it."

England must 

put troubles 

behind them 

.FrwnRkbanl Satin, Mnlhefrn, West Germany 


Nobody should be in any 
doubt that England have a 
new and stricter regime. No 
event underfines that more 
than the Thomas and Uber 
Cup European zone ram , 
paigns which start here today 
(Wed) without either Martin 
Dew or Nora Perry, two of the 
leading figures in the acquisi- 
tion of a bronze and silver 
medal last time. 

Despite their absences both 
England teams should com- 
fortably make the top dune 
who will qualify for the finale 
in Jakarta in April and May. 
More important will be toe 
feeling ami form of the 
who have two such famous 
names omitted because they 
refused to agree to travel with 
the others to Jakarta. A pro- 
found sense of togetherness is 
now essential if any hopes of 
further success are to be 
entertained. 

“There are no problems. 
The spirit is exceflent,** is the 
firm view of Jake Downey, the 
manager who has given th e 
impression during the four 
and a half months since he has 
taken over that he is prep are d 
to regard any of the players as 
dispensable to his long-term, 
plans if they do not fit in. The 
reality, however, will surety be 
more complex than he is 
saying here. 

“We have got to forget 
about the hassle and 
disagreements," Steve 
Baddeley, the England no. 1. 
says. Baddeley was one of 


Uber Cup practices. These 
two may wdJ now miss the 
firet three days of the cam- 
paign and at best they will 
travel separately to MuDteim 

tomorrow. 

This means the fitness off 
England’s two leading yjngi>s 
players may still be m doubt 
when it comes to the probable 
contests against Sweden and 
Denmark on Saturday and 
Sunday. Defeats here would 
not prevent England from 
qualifying but would effect 
settlings in Jakarta. Further- 
more, they would confirm the 
uncomfortable feeling that the 
balance of European power} 
has swung strongly away from 
England towards their arch- 
enemies, the Danes. 

Frankly it is hard to see 
England overcoming a Danish 
men’s team containing 
Morten Frost, possibly still 
the world’s best angles player. 
and also two fine doubles} 
players in Kjddsea and! 
Christiansen, the AH-Engkmdl 


finalists, and Fladberg and 
Heledie, the former work! 
champions. Young Chris 
Dobson is expected to replace! 
Dew. 

The women by contrast, 
have realistic chances of beat-J 
mg the Danes, although modi 
wul depend on Troke being fit 


to request Dew’s inclusion 
irrespective of whether be 
travelled with the team. “If we 
can do that OK it will help pull 
us together. I shall certainly be 
pulling hard.** 

Fortunately Baddeley, like 
most of the squad, is extreme- 
ly professional. Unfortunately 
both he and Helen Troke, die 
European champion, went 
down with infections at the 



weekend white playing at the M 

Poona ^tournament _ in . Bel- *."■ ! J A V-;CrJ

RUGBY UNION

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 

Francis dough, the new cap- 
tain of Cambridge University, 
wi U comb ined 

French students at Barh^next 


Tuesday evening. Clough, the 
England squad centre, will have 
five of his university colleagues 
with him, among them the two 
internationals, Sunnis and Bai- 
ley. 

This is the first occasion that a 

side has been chosen covering, 
all the different areas of student 
rugby. Previously each tended 
to operate in a vacuum with 
Oxford and Cambridge in 
particular shunning contact 
with other’s student bodies; 
however, at last year’s annual 
meeting of foe Rugby Football 
Union, Budge Rogers was in- 
vited to co-ordinate the dif- 
ferent areas in an effiart to 
produce ■ one fully represented 
side. 

Rogers, the former chairman 
of the England selectors, chaired 
a student selection committee in 
which lan George, their new 
coach, represented Oxford: Pat 
Briggs, the former England Un- 
der-23 coach, represented Cam- 
bridge; while John Robins and 
Mike Titcomb looked after foe 
interests of colleges, poly- 
technics, the University Athletic 
Union mid London University. 

The upshot of their dis- 
cussions is a ride including sue. 
from Cambridge, one from tht- 
ford (1 point winners of foe 
university match last Decem- 
ber) two from Loughborough 
University, current holders of 
the UAU title, one from London 
University, three from poly- 
technics and two from outer 
universities. 

There is considerable firet- 
dass experience throughout tin: 

side, in the foreequarters and all 

three rows of the pack where. 
Ward, the Nottingham dub 

prop, Edwards, the Rosdyn 

park lock and his club col le ague

the Blackheaih no. & Stack has 
afro played for Cumb na m the 
county championship while an- 
other northerner, Ndson-WB- 
iiams, appears on the right wmg 
after making an impact for 

Durham this reason.

By Christopher Wannan 

Property Correspondent 

Companies and diplomats continue to 
do minate the upper .reaches of the 
London letting market bat them are 
signs of a Swing towards individual 
lettings, according to a survey by 


i and Sons and < 

and fca Twelve Chester Row, mantfy 
modernized, is on five floors and 
has two reception rooms and fur bed- 
rooms. 

Rural retreats 

■ A senes of I9ttvcentury farm build- 
ings ciose to the Saxon duirch In the vff- 
lage of Tarramere, West Sussex, has • 

been transformed into 27 cottages and 
flats in an unusual devetopmem by 
Federated Homes. Butt to the farm of a 
square with four interna) yards, the 
ongtnai butkfmgs with tfteir (4-in., aoHd- 
coureed, knapped, flint walls open on 
to four garden squares, toskto, the! 
supporting rafters and trusses have 
been left exposed, giving afl the cottages 
aalleried first-floor studios. 

Now called Saxon Meadow, the 
one, two and three bedroom cottages 
and fiats are for sale through KSnq 
and Chasemora's Chichester office. The 
leasehold i 
£41 .450 to £71,450, 


published today. 

It is not surprising, given their bigger 
- resources, that companies, hawk* yi*d 
diplomatic missions should raty up a 
large proportion of rented properties in 
the more expensive ports of the capital, 
but that situation has been emphasized 
by the reluctance of landlords to let to 
private individuab because - in theory 
at l east — corporate bodies are more 
certain payers and landlords can expect 
to get their property back more easily. 

The figures in this thir d survey by 
Ironsides show a steady i pgwim jn 
demand from diplomats since 1983, but 
the report notes that the market is still 
unsure bow to treat the problems of 
dopfoniatic immunity — the e xample of 
a middle-eastern diplomat who would 
sot move fresh in their minrfq 

_ Ironsides suggest it would be in the 
Interests of individual diplomats either 
to waive their immunity where it ai&cts 
rental agreements or persuade their 
governments to sign normal commer- 
cial contracts on their -behalf This 
would give diplomats* far wider choice 
of properties urn “suspicious” market. 

One of the treads plotted in the last 
"three years is the swing to letting to 
private individuals rather .than an 
insistence on company IclsJSeveuleen 
. percent .of the lanqfonis taking part in . 


the survey said they were prepared to 
accept private individuals as tenants, 
the result — Ironsides conclude — of the 
Pococlc and Steel case which demon- 
strated that the courts do protect private 
owner/occupier landlords. 

Further evidence of this swing is 
shown in the table of landlords’ 
concerns before letting, a total of 32 per 
cent now concern themselves with the 
‘quality of the tenant*, ahead of other 
considerations such as payment (22 per 
cent) and vacation of the premises (29 
percent). 

The survey also shows that there is a 
marked increase in the number of long 
lets of three years or more. These 
lettings are in prime properties with 
higher specifications. Supporting this 
trend are answers from tenants who 
demand certain requirements such as 
proximity to schools, the Underground 
and the need tor offstreet parkin g 
Ironsides believe that longer stays will 
reduce the turnover in the market, 
which in turn should produce more 
price stability. Another effect, however, 
is that fewer than two-thirds of potential 
tenants are finding that the London 
market provides suitable properties as 
their requirements for a longer stay 
grow more stringent 

Three years ago, 83 per cent of tenants 
found foe range of accommodation 
available suitable, compared with only 
59 per cent tins year. The difficulty is 
compounded by the fact that landlords 
prefer to let furnished or partly fur- 
nished property. For those potential 
tenants from countries including Amer- 
ica and France, where unfiiniished. 
letting is usual, it creates the problem of 
either storing their own or foeir> 
landlord’s furniture.

about the 19W-85 miners' 
strike. We cannot tefluntH the 
rest arrive. Between them. 
Geoffrey Case and Gordon 
Flanwng have fashioned the 
firet IV drama from the bitter pits 
dispute. And it la exactly what ' 
you would expect it to be: sour 
and angry. First, the resolve 
to win, bom out of unity. Then, 
naggira doubts and 
crumbling resistance. And flna&y, 
capitulation, concealed by 
brass bands and banners.}! Scab 
has any hero at aHjt is Brian

CHOICE- 


rntrang in Britain, it reinforces the

(BBC Z225pm],the second 
portrait in Leslie Megahey’s 
tnptych of 19th century French 
painters, is about Ingres, the 
immovable Classicist. A complex 
personality. And Anthony 

Bate is just the actor to 
encompass the ambiguities 
.Some of my colleagues have 
found Megahey*3 approach 
too diffused .Everything is grist to 
h*s mifl.from ancient snent 
movies to re-enactments,

microscopic scrutiny of famous 
canvases.For me .the result is

Television world 
sees Granada as 
Britain’s best 

By David Henson and Patricia Clough 


Merger will father a leisure megagiant 


Granada Television, which 
went on the air in May 1936, is 
regarded in international tele- 
vision circles as Britain's fore- 
most commercial television 
company, belying ITV’s 
down-market audience-grab- 
bing image. 

Granada Television began 
breaking new ground in politi- 
cal reporting in 1958 when it 
covered the Rochdale by- 
election, the first to be shown 
on British television. It then 
went on to give the first day- 
by-day coverage of party con- 
ferences. 

It pioneered TV investiga- 
tive reporting when it began 
hosting the World in Action in 
1963 — a show which went on 
to bring it both trouble and 
success. 

In 1939. it started screening 
science programmes for sixth 
form school students. 

Coronation Street was 
launched in 1960 without 
Granada Television knowing 
or imagining that the soap 
opera, dedicated to the daily 
lives of ordinary folk, would 
become its longest-running 
success. The popular serial is 
now in its 26th year. 

But for the company, the 
early days were difficult finan- 
cially, as they were for all 
independent television com- 
panies whose advertising did 
not rise to meet expectations. 

Based in Manchester, the 
company went on the air 
under a contract to serve the 
north of England five days a 
week. It later switched to a 
seven-day-a-week contract for 


the north-west. The north- 
eastern area was then taken 
over by Yorkshire Television. 

Last month, talks between 
Granada Television and 
Ladbrokes on a possible merg- 
er or cooperation ended with- 
out agreement or regret 
Granada now remains the 
only independent television 
company to have survived 
since the 1950s in its present 
form. 

It is regarded by many, 
particularly in the United 
States, as superior to the BBC 
for some of its programmes, 
two of which, Brideshead 
Revisited and The Jewel in the 
Crown, have became Britain's 
greatest international televi- 
sion successes of the 1980s. 
Both serials earned interna- 
tional Emmy awards. 

The company has a long 
track record of producing 
quality drama for general 
consumption as a mailer of 
policy. 

Much of the credit for its 
recent successes has been at- 
tributed to its chairman. Sir 
Denis Forman, and its manag- 
ing director. Mr David 
PlowrighL 

Lora Olivier made his first 
Shakespearean production for 
television in Granada's King 
Lear. The production, first 
seen on Channel Four at 
Easter 1983, has since won 
many international awards. 
Lord Olivier, who is married 
to Mr Plowright's sister, ac- 
tress Joan Plowright, has had a 
working relationship with 
Granada since the If * 


Rank makes £740m 
offer for Granada 


Continued from page 1 
through Butlin's and its share 
of Cal Air, formerly British 
Caledonian Airways. 

But one possible snag for 
Rank could be the Granada 
television contract. Any 
change of ownership has to 
win approval from the Inde- 
pendent Broadcasting Author- 
ity. Rank owns Pinewood 
Studios and the Odeon and 
Gaumont cinema c hain and 
any conflict of interest appears 
unlikely.

An 1BA spokesman said 
yesterday: "We would need to 
be assured that there would be 
no change in the nature of the 
business". 

Mr Bernstein's board pre- 
dictably rejected the bid yes- 
terday. He said the offer had 
no logic and he knocked down 
Rank's plans for selling holi- 
days in television shops. “ I 
can't think of any reason why 
our customers should want to 
go lo Butlin's*'.

Rank Organisation's 
£740 million offer for 
Granada ■- the latest dty 
megabid - will, if success- 
ful, create a huge leisure 
and entertainments em- 
pire offering a “cradle to 
grave" service embracing 
television, video, tinoma, 
bingo, holidays, and 
catering. The combined 
group wiD employ aronnd 
35,000 workers and boast 
profits of more than £200 

milli on. 

The bid has pitted two 
distinctly different 
management styles 
against each other. On 
the one band there Is die 
new, tough professional 
team at Rank headed by 
Sir Patrick Meaney and 

his right- hand mal tha 

chief executive Mr Mi- 
chael Gifford, brought in 
by the city institutions 
when Rank produced a 
string of disappointing 
results three years ago. 

On the other, Mr Alex 
Bernstein, the head of 
Granada, represents the 
third generation of Bern- 
steins ami is likely to pot 
np fierce resistance to 
prevent the end of the 
dynasty. 

Granada 

TV rental: Granada has a 
strong high street presence 
through 650 television rental 
•hops. Since h took over 
Rediffiision nearly two years 
ago, the two chains have been 
merged and the Rediffiision 
name has now disappeared 
along with some 150 shops. 
The combined group now has 
two million customer . ac- 
counts. 

The merger turned Granada 
into the largest single rental 
brand in the country.lt aim 
offers customers the chance to 
buy sets, as many now prefer. 
Usually these are Granada- 
branded products, bat in Scot- 
land the group is 
experimenting with other 
manufacturers' television sets. 
TV pmmwmesiThe Jewel in 
the Crown, a Granada 
Televison production, has re- 
ceived huge acclaim all over 
the world. More recently Gra- 
nada has produced The Advert- 





Anthony Andrews and Jeremy Irons (Brideshead Revisited); Charles Dance with Geraldine Janies (Jewel in the Crown). 


tures of Sherlock, The Brothers 
McGregor and other success- 
es. 

These programmes have in- 
creased Granada's already 
strong reputation, backed by 
documentaries such as World 
in Action, and Channel 4 
contributions including End 
of Empire and What The 
Papers Say. 

Many of the programmes, 
notably Coronation Street , 
have sold successfully over- 
seas. Last year Granada sold 
3,300 hours of televison to 79 
countries. 

M-way services With 13 mo- 
torway service areas, Granada 
is the largest operator in the 
country, serving SO million 
customers annually. Last year 
it opened a new service area at 
Ferrybridge, on the junction 
of the M62 and A1, and this 
year it plans to open new 
service stations near Stirling 
and New bury. 


As well as the usual array of 
canteens, shops and petrol 
services, the new areas wifi 
include small hotels, designed 
for weary drivers, whether 
they are travelling on business 
or with their families. 

Profits from this business 
are growing fast but the cur- 
rent spate of new sites should 
help continue the momentum. 
Bingo dobs: Since the begin- 
ning of latf year Granada 
acquired 12 bingo dubs, tak- 
ing the total operated in the 
Granada Theatre divison to 
52. In Morecombe it opened a 
£1 million-plus, purpose-built 
dub to replace the original 
building destroyed by floods 
in 1983: 

Another dub was opened at 
Word, on the she of a former, 
cinema, at a cost of £750,000. 
In addition two dubs were 
refurbished to provide the 
latest in bingo technology. 

This spring sees the start of 


a national bingo game, involv- 
ing a nightly national prize of 
£50,000 and regional prizes of 
£10,000. This should attract 
more participants to 
Granada's dubs. In addition 
the Odeon cinemas are draw- 
ing new andianoes. 

Music publishing: The 
division's current claim to 
fame is that it holds the 
exclusive rights to Andrew 
LLoyd Webber's Requiem for 
the United Kingdom, Ireland 
and Europe. The company is 
also the sole sales agent for G 
Schirmer, a major American 
music publisher.

Rank's empire 

Films: Rank's film and televi- 
sion business is known 
throughout the world. Ten 
major film productions were 
handled at Pinewood Studios 
last year including the latest 
James Bond. A Viewto aKilL 


The video cassette business 
-issued titles such as Alice in 
Wonderland and Woman -in 
Red. 

The Odeon and Gaumont 
cinema c hains have been en- 
joying buoyant times with 
admissions up by 48 per cent 
last year. 

A lesser known side of the 
business is the film processing 
operation which recently won 
a Queen's Award for Techni- 
cal Achievement 
Holidays: Rank claims to be 
the biggest UK holiday opera- 
tor handling two million 
bookings a year. 

It owns Butlin's, which is 
on improv- 
ing its facilities for holiday- 
makers. About £10 million is 
being spent on the Minehead 
.centre with a new indoor 
water leisure complex, cabaret 
bar and deluxe accommoda- 
tion. 

, Rank also owns 50 per cent 


of Cal Air International for- 
merly British Caledonian Air- 
ways, caravan parks, leisure 
hotels, marinas, and a string of 
bingo dubs which are expect- 
. ed to benefit from a change in 
the law allowing a daily prize 
of £50,000. 

Hotels: The group owns a 
number of top-rate London 
hotels, including the Royal 
Lancaster, which have done 
well from the increase in 
tourism of the last few years, 
Much has been spent on 
improving their standards. 

At the Gloucester Hotel a 
new 500 seat conference and 
banqueting suite have been 
built, while at other hotels 
improvements are taking 
place at restaurants, bars and 
public areas. 

M-way services: Rank oper- 
ates 19 motorway service areas 
including the Aust on the M4 
overlooking the Severn 
Bridge, where a new cafeteria 
restaurant, shop and transport 
drivers' dub . have been 
opened. 

Higb-teduRank Precision In- 
dustries fails to attract the 
spotlight but remains a signifi- 
cant part or the group. The 
business provides a range of 
high tech equipment sold to 
television companies around 
the world. 

Rank Cintel is a leading 
supplier of telecine equipment 
used for the conversion of 
images on motion picture film 
to electronic signals. It has just 
.launched a new range of video 
equipment which enables in- 
formation in microform to be 
stored and remotely accessed. 

Another company in the 
division makes meteorologi- 
cal instruments. 

XeroxrtDne of the mainstays of 
the group for years has been its 
stake in Rank Xerox, the 
photocopier associate. Last * 
year, for the first time in 20 
years. Rank succeeded in 
earning more profits from its 
other activities than from its 
shareholding in the Xerox 
machines. 

This has come as welcome 
relief, particularly as the mar- 
ketplace grows increasingly 
tough for photocopier firms. 
Overseas: In the United Stales 
Rank has started work on a 
major leisure project at Myrtle 
Beach, South Carolina, a fast 
growing holiday and 
recreation area, involving 
building of a hotel, apartment 
blocks, and villas. 

It also runs , a specialist 
lighting company
