Parents to 

get more 
powers in 
schools 

ByOsrfdWafter

stronger say in the running of 
schools in England and Wales, 
the Government promised 
yesterday . ft published an 
education Bill that would .end 
the “domination” of school 
governors’ meetings by politi- 
cal activists by increasing 
repres e nta t i o n of parents. 

The Bill also gives the 
Government wide new powers 
to set up a system of testing 
teachers* competence in the 
classroom. But the machinery 
is to be kept in reserve because 
it hopes teachers* unions and 
councils can agree on a volun- 
tary scheme as part of a 
settlement of Ore teachers' pay 
dispute. 

Sir Keith Joseph, Secretary 
of State for Education and 
Science, said yesterday that 
reformed governing bodies for 
schools, ode to be established 
from September 1987, could 
mean more discipline, less 
jxsoe studies, but perhaps also 
more pres sure from parents 
for spending* on education.

accused opponents of the

in their efforts to thwart the

In a concerted government 
drive to win support for the 
American option Mrs Marga- 
ret Thatcher and Mr Norman 
Tebbit, the Conservative Par- 
ty chairman, welcomed over- 
seas investment in Britain 
and, along with Mr Paul 
Channon, Secretary of State 
for Trade and Industry, made 
dear that Ley land’s losses 
could - not continue to be 
borne.

John Hoskyns, former bead of

unit, said it had been wrong to 
call off the talks between 
Austin Rover and Ford, Warn- 
ing ministers whom he said 
had not thought the issue 
through and had deflected the 
Government by reacting to 
emotions. 

In the Commons Mrs 
Thatcher said that support for 
British Leybnd [had cost every 
family in Britain £200, a 
situation that could not con- 
tinue. 

She said that British compa- 
nies had acquired 160 busi-

Alarm 

over 

forestry 

‘sell-off 

By Hugh Clayton 
Environment Correspondent 

There was confusion in 

govern men: circles last night 
over reports that vast stretches 
of woodland, worth perhaps 
£1,000 million, were to be 
privatized. 

A reported decision by min* 
isters to sell almost everything 
owned by foe Forestry Com- 
mission would have meant 
that plantations and beauty 
spots adding up to more than 
foe areas of Devon and Corn- 
wall combined were up for 
grabs. 

However, last night foe 
Scottish Office said that no 
decisions had been taken. 
Most of foe commission’s 
land is in Scotland. The 
Scottish Office added that it 
had received no recommenda- 
tion from the commission for 
disposal of land to private 
investors. 

Any such decision would 
mark a rapid acceleration of 
foe piecemeal sales of com- 
mission land that began more 
than four years ago, amid 
complaints that foe process 
has been too secretive and too 
rapid for nature-lovers to buy 
woods important for wildlife. 

A meeting of ministers yes- 
terday failed to dispel confu- 
sion. No statement was issued 
after Mr Michael Jopting, 
Minister of Agriculture, met 
Mr Nicholas Edwards and Mr 
Malcolm Rifirind, Secretaries 
of State for Wales and Scot- 
land. 

It was not clear how the , 
Government would sell the 
land without disrupting the 
market. Woods sold so far : 
have fetched between about 
£150 and £650 an acre, de- 
pending on size, position and 
commercial prospects. Some 
have not found buyers. 

Conservative and Labour 
MPs reacted angrily yesterday. 

Mr Neil Kinnock, foe La- 
bour leader, said: “Any option 
which includes foe wholesale 
flogging off of Forestry Com- 
mission land-especially since 
foe Commiss on was set up by 
general* acclamation— to City 
and commercial interests win 
be fought tooth and nail”

requirements. Guinness said 
that the proposal had been 
vetted by Sr Godfrey Le 
Quesne, foe chairman of the

who had advised Mr Geoffrey 
Pattie, Minister of State for 
Industry, to lay aside the 
previous refer ence decision. 

However, Argyll said it

about to launch a fresh bid

. to court the man she blames 

■ for the death of her teenage 
son ended successfully yester- 
day when he was jailed for 15 

. months for manslaughter. 

Mrs Pauline Williams, aged 
" 45. clutched her husband and 
' gave a sigh of relief when the 
jury at St Alban's Crown 
. Court returned a verdict of 
- guihv on Gary Austin, aged 

■ 25. 

The jury of six men and six 
women took more than three 
hours to decide by a unani- 
- ‘ mous verdict that he bad 
unlawfully killed Mr John 
. Williams, aged 19, a dairy 
. worker. 

They also found him guilty 
. of maliciously administering a 
noxious substance, the drug 
Palfium, so as to endanger life. 
He was sentenced to 15 
months’ imprisonment on 
that charge, to run concurrent- 
ly- 

passing sentence. Mr Jus- 
tice Staughton said: “This case 
must be a warning to those 
who inject others with danger- 
ous drugs, even at their re- 


The prosecution alleged 
that Austin, a despatch rider, 
of Burton Road. Stockwell, 
south London, had caused the 
death of Mr Williams by 
assisting him to inject 
Palfium, a pain-killer used by 
cancer patients. 

After the incident on Sep- 
tember 2. 1982. the Director 
of Public Prosecutions ad- 
vised the police that there was 
insufficient evidence to bring 
charges against Austin. 

But Mts Williams and her 
husband. Ray. aged 48, a 
motor fitter of Whipperiey 
Ring, Luton. Bedfordshire, 
were prepared to spend 
around £16.000 of their sav- 
ings to take the case to court 
h was the first time this 
century that a manslaughter 
case instigated by a private 
prosecution bad been brought 
to trial. The DPP took over 
vhe case after magistrates at 
Luton committed Austin for 
trial last September. 

After they had returned 


contents of the syringe had 
been injected by Austin. 

As the verdict was an- 
nounced, friends and relatives 
of Austin began sobbing. 

Dei Insp Richard Roscoe 
then read out to the packed 
courtroom details of Austin's 
criminal record, which includ- 
ed two lines for possession of 
drugs, including LSD, a three- 
year prison sentence imposed 
in March 1 983 for the burglary 
of chemists' shops and the 
theft of drugs, and for possess- 
ing the Palfium involved in 
the Williams' case. 

He had been released from 
prison in March 1984, after 
serving 18 months. 

Mr Stephen Coward, for 
Austin, said: "The man who in 
September 1982 was deeply 
enmeshed in the hard drugs 
scene, and injected bard drugs, 
is now out of it” 

He said the defendant had 
received a small inheritance

‘Ostrich-like’ printers 


Mr Norman Tebbit the 
Conservative Party chairman, 
attacked the prim unions 
when he spoke lo the Ameri- 
can Chamber of Commerce in 
London. 

He said:“Like ostriches the 
printers of Fleet Street buried 
their beads in the sand. They 
hoped the new technology 
would go away and. more 
reactionary than any country 
squire, they rejoiced in having 
resisted change. 

“But now they have the 
barefaced cheek to accuse 
News International of taking 
from them the wealth they 
believed they bad created. 


“Fleet Street has for years 
been littered with the financial 
corpses of the press barons 
who could not stand against 
the losses from producing 
newspapers the printers’ 
way.” 


Mr Tebbit said he had some 
sympathy with News 
International's former print- 
ers: “But they must have 
known that the type had been 
set a long time ago for this 
story. I am glad to say that 
Fleet Street in general now 
represents no more than an 
absurd anachronism in British 
industry.” 


Continued from page 1 
colleague's Irrepressible ag- 
gression, which was yesterday 
applied to anyone who fitted 
the description which was 
issued. 

Although Mr Heseltine has 
recently been accused of im- 
pugning the integrity of public 
servants. Mr Tebbit yesterday 
specifically quoted a recent 
letter from Mr David Steel, 
the Liberal leader, to the 
Prime Minister on the Hanson* 
bid for Imperial to illustrate 
! his attack on the mud-stingers. 

Mr Tebbit said that Mr 
Steel had mischievously sug- 
gested that the Hanson bid 
had been given the all-clear 
“as a thank yon for Lord 
Hanson's role in the Westland 
affair * when he backed Sikor- 
sky - while the GEC bid for 
Plessey had been referred to 
the Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission because they had 
been on tire “wrong side” of 
the Westland wrangle. 

The Conservative chairman 
said that the slnr against Mr 
Paul Chanson, Secretary of 
State for Trade and Industry, 
was bad enough but Mr Steel's 
letter had also suggested “the 
smear” that Sir Gordon 
Borne, the independent Direc- 
tor General of Fair Trading, 
had acted “as a political 
payola agent for the Conserva- 
tive party”. 

But Mr Tebbit said that the 
mod-stinging would not last 
and the electorate would inex- 
orably be faced with the debate 
about real issues: how the 
Thatcher administration had 
killed fears that the country 
was ungovernable; had over- 
come hyper-inflation; restored 
industrial relations; rolled 
back state control; doubled the 
number of shareholders; and 
liberated nearly 900,000 for- 
mer council tenants. 

He concluded: “If I happen 
to be with you again, in say 
1990, we will be looking back 
on another string of success 
for Mrs Thatcher and her 
government, another list of 
gloomy prognostications un- 
fulfilled, and looking forward 
to a fourth consecutive Conser- 
vative election win in 1992 or 
thereabouts.”

Senior officials of the Nu-

assembling the team which 
will cany out the inquiry into 
safety at the- Sellafield midear 
reprocessing plant. 

Although the 12 inspectors 
are not expected to moveon to 
the ate in Cumbria until next 
week the detailed planning for 
the investigation has began. 

The team, which will be in 
the plant for three months 
with a further three months 
preparing its report, was being 
selected by Mr Jim Hanna-

He was in contact during

chief, Mr Eddie Ryder. 

Once the 12 inspectors have 
been selected and briefed, 
senior members of the team 
will hold talks with executives 
of British Nuclear Fuels, 
which operates Sellafield, at 
the company's headquarters at 
Risley, near Warrington, in 
the middle of next week. The 
on-site investigation will start 
soon afterwards. 

The inspectors will be 
backed up by officials of the 
accident prevention advisory 
unit of the Health and Safety 
Executive, which announced 
the safety inquiry on Wednes- 
day. Yesterday Mr Jake Kelly, 
the BNFL spokesman at 
Sellafield, said: “We welcome

which took longer to process 
eventually disclosed that U 
men had been affected. 

Mr Kelly said: “Safety is not 
negotiable at Sellafield. There 
is no argument between 
unions and management 
about that. It is paramount to 
us both.” 

Much of the inspectors' 
work is expected to concen- 
trate on the main B205 repro- 
cessing plant to see bow it is 
operated.

- The European Parliament 
voted by 1 35 to 99 yesterday 
in favour of the temporary 
shutdown of the Sellafield 
nuclear reprocessing plant, 
pending die outcome of a 
Commons inquiry. 

The can came at the end of a 
passionate emergency debate 
in Strasbourg, in which the 
Government and British Nu- 
clear Fuels were accused of 
foiling to heed warnings. 

Amid groans and boos from 
other MEPs, Mrs Sheila Faith, 
Cumbria and Lancashire 
North, attacked calls for the 
plant’s closure as “irresponsi- 
ble and alarmist”. 

She questioned whether it 
was any more dangerous than 
the mini ng, chemical or even 
the building industries. 

Other Euro MPs, mainly 
Irish members concerned 
about nuclear discharges into 
the Irish Sea, expressed alarm 
at the recent rate of leakages. 

Hanna Fail's Mrs Eileen 
Lemass described Sellafield’s 
record as a disaster. She said 
foe EEC bad full responsibility 
for policing the Common 
Market's nuclear industry un- 
der a 1958 treaty. 

EEC Commissioner Mr 
Stanley Clinton Davis, who is 
conducting an EEC-level in- 
quiry, promised an early re- 
port. He made it dear he was 
in favour ofa European policy 
aimed at removing foe need 
for all nudear discharges as 
soon as technically possible.

Countries with nuclear 
power have taken two distinct 
approaches to foe treatment of 
spent fuel rods from atomic 
power stations. They are ei- 
ther reprocessed, as at 
Sellafield, or stored intact. 

The second method is re- 
ferred to as “once-through 
fuelling”. 

The main argument for 
reprocessing is to extract plu- 
tonium created in the reactor. 
There are no natural sources 
of plutonium, the main ingre- 
dient of nudear weapons and 
the fuel for future fest-breeder 
reactors.

tritium, produced at the time 
the fuel is converted into 
liquid nitrate, is the bulk of 
the atmopheric .discharges. 
Other various chemical activi- 
ties produce low-level liquid 
streams. 

The most highly active 
wastes come from the chemi- 
cal separation. They are stored 
in double-lined stainless »n^ 
that contain cooling coils. 

The site, first named 
windscale. was acquired in 
1947 for foe construction of 
two air-cooled nudear nifo 
for the production of plutoni* 
urn and fuel rrorocesang 
plant for its extraction. 

In 1953 construction 
on two Magnox reactors 
which formed foe Calder Hall 
power Station. Calder Hall was 
connected to the electricity 
grid, providing 30 years ago 
the world’s first demonstra- 
tion of the possibility of 
commercial nuclear power. 

In 1957 foe most serious 


urn 235 content of between 3 
and 4 per cent is produced at 
Cape nil urst, Cheshire. It is 
prepared as uranium oxide, 
and is referred to as “oxide 
fuel". 


Next the metal cladding is 
removed and the rods are 
dissolved in nitric add for 
chemical separation. Several 
classes of waste are left. 


An these factors become 
crucial when the reprocessing 
route is chosen, because of foe 
different types of waste.

The basic fuel for atomic 
! stations is uranium ore, which 
in the case of Britain comes 
mainly from Canada and Na- 
mibia. Once the ore is con- 
verted to metal the material 
consists mostly of uranium 
238 with about 0.7 per cent of 
uranium 235. 

The first generation 
Magnox reactors, which are in 
operation at II sites in Brit- 
ain, use fuel rods machined 
from natural uranium metaL 
The second generation of 
advanced gas-cooled reactors. 


Magnox fuel rods, which 
form the bulk of the material 
so for reprocesed at Sellafield, 
are clad in a magnesium alloy. 
Oxide fuel is moulded into 
pellets that are encased m 
stainless steel or an alloy 
called zircalloy. 

In all reactors the amount of 
uranium is reduced by foe 
fission process. Fuel removed 
from foe reactor contains 
about 96 per cent u raniamn, 
up to I per cent plutonium 
and between 2 and 3 per cent 
fission products. Reprocessing 
separates those three groups. 

Fuel elements are kept for at 


Contamination of cooling- 
pond water occurs with dam- 
aged fuel rods leaking. Some 
of foe more soluble radioac- 
tive elements such as cawd nm 
137 get into waste at this stage, 
and this forms most of tire 
active elements which get into 
foe Irish Sea. 


Stainless' steel and zircalloy 
are corroded by pond water to 
some extent but less than for 
Magnox cladding. In general, 
pond waters form part of foe

Tough discipline urged 
for dentists who carry 

out needless treatment 

By Nicholas Timmins, Social Services Correspondent 


Tough sanctions to stop 
dentists ' from carrying out 
unnecessary treatment were 
urged by a government ap- 
pointed inquiry yesterday. 

It recommended that any 
demist found guilty of deliber- 
ate unnecessary treatment, or 
any dentist who over treated 
because his knowledge was 
out-ofdate, and there was 
evidence of "serious 
incompetence", should be re- 
ferred to the Genera! Dental 
Council, the dentists' disci- 
plinary body. 

The inquiry was set up in 
1984 after allegations that 
some dentists were “drilling 
for gold”, and defrauding both 
patients and the taxpayer. 

Mr Barney Hayhoe, Minis- 
ter for Health, last night 
promised action this year on 
the majority of the report's 52 
recommendations. < 

The inquiry has concluded 
that there was a “small but 
significant and unacceptable 
amount of deliberate and 
unnecessary treatment” and 
“a larger amount attributable 
to an out-of-date treatment 
philosophy”. 

The majority of dentists 
were honest and provided a 
good service on which the 
public can rely, the inquiry 
concluded. 

Bui there were cases of 
persistent and flagrant abuse. 
Unnecessary treatment was a 
significant factor in cases 
brought before service com- 
mittees and particularly in 1 
orthodontics, the treatment of 
crooked or overcrowded teeth 
in children, “much unneces- 
sary and costly treatment may 
be taking place”. 

The system of checking on 
abuse was. however, so poor 
that “we do not consider that 
dentists who are tempted to 
over prescibe will be deterred 
by any fear of detection of 


punishment under the present 
system" the inquiry's report 
said. 

On the basis of the evi- 
dence, the inquiry said, “some 
dentists will have both the 
motive and the opportunity to 
prescribe unnecessary 
treatment”. 

To tackle the situation the 
new computer being installed 
by the Denial Estimates 
Board, the NHS paymaster for 
dentists, should be pro- 
grammed so that dentists 
whose treatment was out-of- 
line with the majority could be 
identified. 

The inquiry urged that sys- 
tems be set up to follow 
individual patients so that a 
sudden increase or decrease in 
treatment when a patient 
changes dentists could raise 
suspicion. More dental refer- 
ence officers, who check up on 
quality of treatment and 
whose numbers have been cut 
in recent years, should be 
appointed. 

Once statistical evidence 
produced a clear inference 
that unnecessary treatment 
was taking place, the burden 
of proof should be on the 
demist to show that this was 
not the case, the inquiry 
recommended. 

Where a dentist's pattern of 
treatment was significantly 
out-oftine, the Dental Esti- 
mates Board should be able to 
insist that prior approval 
would be needed, for a period, 
for the types of treatment in 
question. 

If the level of prescribing 
did not fall, or the dentists was 
unable to convince the board 
that the treatment was justi- 
fied. disciplinary action would 
follow. 

The report also made a 
series of recommendations to 
strengthen and speed up disci- 
plinary hearings. 


Nobel nomination 
delights Geldof 


Bob Geldof, whose charity 
fund for African famine relief 
has just topped £60 million, 
said yesterday he was delight- 
ed to be nominated for the 
1 986 Nobel peace prize. 

Mr Geldof, who was nomi- 
nated too late for the award 
last year, again urged- govern- 
ments to continue the initia- 
tive to end Third World 
hunger. 

The Boomtown Rats singer, 
who hails from the Irish 
Republic, was one of 85 
nominees for the prize.

Airlines face pilot shortage crisis 

By Alan Hamilton largest airline, has no pilots mercial flying schools. 


British airlines face a seri- 
ous shortage of trained pilots 
by 1990 unless there is a rapid 
increase in the intake of 
approved flying schools, ac- 
cording to a report by the 
industry-funded Air Trans- 
port Training Association. 

The report said pilot train- 
ing had been virtually mori- 
bund for the five years because 
of industry recession and the 
high cost of tuition at Britain's 
three Civil Aviation Author- 
ity-approved schools. 

Bui with the aviation indus- 
try showing signs of expan- 
sion, and a high prop 9 rtion of 
pilots due to retire within the 
next 15 years, the association 
believes the need to recruit a 
new generation of pilots is 
becoming urgent. 

British Airways, Britain's 


largest airline, has no pilots 
aged under 30, while 1,200 out 
of its strength of 2,000 will 
have retired by the end of the 
century. Retirement age for its 
pilots is 55. 

British Airways will begin 
recruiting again next year, 
stoning with young, experi- 
enced pilots from other air- 
lines and proceeding to the 
training of 100 beginners each 
year. 

Preparing a trainee to fly q 
commercial jet costs a mini- 
mum of £35,000. The associa- 
tion believes British Airways' 
expansion will merely soak up 
experienced pilots from small- 
er British airlines, leaving 
them short of qualified per- 
sonnel. 

The association said that in 
1980 the three principal com- 


Duchy acts on shabby flats I . Gatwick Satanism 


In addition, dentists should 
be required to explain the p&n 
of treatment, giving an esti- 
mate of cost, and a publicity 
campaign should be mounted 
to emphasize to patients that 
any examination may not 
necessarily have to lead to 
further treatment. 

The report said the issue of 
whether very highly paid den- 
tists earn their fees legitimate- 
ly had to be resolved. In 1984, 
more than 280 dentists had 
gross earnings over £100,000, 
and tbe highest paid received 
£241,590. 

The figures had caused 
“public disquiet”, but tbe 
report said it was difficult to 
decide whether there was a 
correlation between very high 
earnings and unneessary treat- 
ment, although in 1982 a 
dentist who grossed more than 
£250,000 had £50,000 held 
back for treatment .that was 
considered not clinically nec- 
essary. 

One important measure was 
to insist demists produced 
evidence of their own individ- 
ual earnings and no longer, as 
at present, mixed in earnings 
by associates and assistants. 

The report pointed out it 
was extremely difficult to 
detect unnecessary treatment 
afterwards, and that while 
only 35 cases have been put to 
tiie Dental Advisory Service 
in the past two years “we 
suspect these cases are no 
more than a sample of the 
abuse which goes on”. 

Tbe British Dental Associa- 
tion was heartened by the 
finding that the vast majority 
of dentists were not undertak- 
ing unnecessary treatment and 
wholeheartedly supported the 
recommendations.

Netball 
girl loses 
part-time 
shop job 

By lun Jones 

■ A schoOhtirtwfao had a part- 
time job in a sports shop has 
been dismissed after being 
■ picked to' play: netball for the 
junior Welsh national team. 

Nicola Smith, aged 16, was 
told to go when she asked for a 
Saturday off to play her first 
international against England 
and Scotland in a tournament 
at Derby. 

After training yesterday, 
Nicola, of Cbapelwood, 
Uancdeym, Cardiff said: “I 
am very upset and disappoint- 
ed. 1 could hardly believe it 
when 1 was told I was getting 
the sack. I thought the sports 
shop would be pleased to have 
an international working for 
them." 

Mr Laurie Davies, manager 
of the Castle Sports Shop, in 
Cardiff, said: “She was a very, 
very good worker and I am 
sorry I had to dismiss her. But 
this Saturday is going to be a 
busy day for us with a cross 
country event in Cardiff and I 
need all my staff She has 
already missed two Saturdays 
this year for squad sessions so 
I do not think I really had any 
alternative.” 

The Welsh Netball Associa- 
tion has written to Mr Davies 
asking him to reconsider his 
decision.

The Dnchy of Cornwall, 
which manages land and prop-

has conransskmed one of the 
country’s leading firms of 
cominmiity architects to un- 
dertake a feasibility study on a 
■un-down Mock of flats in 
Bennington, south-east Lon- 
don, it was announced yester- 
day. 

Hunt Thompson Asso- 
ciates, of Camden Town, math 
London, was appomted on the 
recommendation of the Royal 
Instifete of British Architects. 

Newquay House, near the 
Oral, tire Duchy's largest 
block, was" bnflt in 1933. 
T enants, many descended 
from famflies who worked for 
the Duchy, had complained 
that 23 of the 76 flats are 
empty, some for several years. 
Rents are so low that they do 
not cover the cost of mainte- 
nance and people wishing to be 
housed have been told that 
they will have to boy a 
property. 

Prices for flats in the area 
are between '£50,000 and 
£ 100 , 000 . 

The Dnchy administers 600 
terrace homes and flats in

the Dnchy is a profit- ma king

Hut Thompson was found- 
ed in 1969 by Mr John 
Thompson, Mr Bernard Hunt 
and Prince Richard, now Dnke 
of Ghmcester, when they com- 
pleted their architectural 
training at Cambridge. Mr 
Ben Derbyshire, recently ap-

jewel theft 
covered by 
■all risks’ 

A woman who had jewellery 
valued at £29,000 stolen at 
Gatwick airport was told by 
her insurance company that 
under her “all risks" policy 
she was not co^ered. 

Bul a High Court judge said 
yesterday: “An all risks policy 
is precisely what it says." 

Mr Justice Hodgson award- 
ed Mrs Josephine Port-Rose, a 
mother of four, £29,000 dam- 
ages, with interest and costs, 
against Phoenix Assurance. 
He said: “If the Phoenix was 
right, it would be a trap for the 
unwary assured." 

When Phoenix rejected Mrs 
Port-Rose's daim, her legal 
adviser wrote back saying 
“this must be construed to be 
the cop-out of a 11 time”. The 
judge said: “That was not an 
exaggeration. I endorse it in 
those terms.” 

In his-ruling, the judge said 
Mis Port-Rose and her hus- 
band, Samuel, who live in the 
Al^rve, Portugal where they 
have an estate agency, flew to 
Gatwick from Portugal in 
April 1984 with their two 
teenage sons. 

Mrs Port-Rose left her 
handbag, containing the 
jewellery, on an airport trolley 
for two or three seconds while 
she gave directions to an 
elderly woman. That was the 
only time the bag was left 
unattended. 

She discovered the bag was 
missing when one son asked 
for money for a rail fere. 

The insurance, company 
told Mrs Port-Rose that leav- 
ing the bag unattended was a 
breach of the policy condi- 
tions. 

But the judge said: “If 
members of the public knew 
that, by leaving a handbag on 
a trolley and taking your eyes 
off it for two or three seconds, 
you are taking yourself out of 
insurance cover, after having 
paid substantial premiums, 
they would be quite 
astonished."

PM’s QUESTIONS 

Every family in ibe United 
Kingdom bos contributed the 
equivalent of £200 to British 
Leyland and such a situation 
could not continue, Mrs Mar- 
garet Thatcher, the Prime Min- 
ister said in a clash with Mr Nefli 
Kinnock. Leader of the Oppo- 
sition, who demanded to know 
what assurances^ were bring 
sought from potential buymof 
various pans ,of the car and 
truck manufacturing company. 

. There were no binding 
en forcible assurances about the 
future of a loss-making British 
Leyland, Mrs Thatcher added. 
The Government was 
■ be best future for Land Rover, 
Freight Rover and for the whole 
of BL and the best future for 
jobs through the extension of 
trade and business. 

The issue was first raised by 
Mr Mark Fisher (Stoke-on- 
Trent Central. Lab) who asked: 
Will the Prime 1 Minister tell the 
House when she first knew of 
the deadline of March 4 for firm 
offers to'aoquire parts of BL? 

Amid -Labour protests, Mrs 
Thatcher commented that she 
had nothing to add to what she 
had already said the matter. 

Mr Jeremy Hanley (Rich- 
mond and Barnes, C): British 
companies made acquisitions to 
the tune of £4 billion in the 
United States last year. There- 
fore. acquisitions in the United 
Kingdom by the United States is 
by no means a one way street. 

Mis Thatcher: Yes. I saw the 
very detailed account in one of 
the papers today of inward and 
outward investment. 

Figures ' published in The 
Financial Times show that Brit- 
ish companies acquired 160 
businesses in the United States 
last year and 142 in 1984. 1 hope 
that acquisition by British 
companies in the United States 
was welcome to the United 
States. 

Mr Kinnock: What specific 
assurances are being sought 
from potential purchasers of the 
constituent parts of BL and in 
addition what means arc beign 
adopted to ensure that such 
assurances are enforced in con- 
tracts. . 

Mrs Thatcher: Mr Chan non. 
Secretary -of State for Trade and 
Industry, has indicated some of 
the assurances being sought 
assurances of the kind that the 


British nature of Land Rover In 
particular and Range Rover 
should be honoured and, of 
course, certain assurances on 
sourcing. 

Mr Khmodu Can she con- 
vince us that ‘‘honoured'* is the 
equivalent of binding assur- 
ances that actually will deter- 
mine the future of an essential 
part of the British auto industry? 

What did the Under Secretary 
of State for Trade and Industry 
(Lord Lucas of CHilwwthJ mean 
yesterday in the House of Lords 
wbeu he said: “In respect of all 
such assurances in regard to 
British content, trade marks, 
names and the like, in law there 
is a time limitation"? 

Mrs Thatcher Lord Lucas of 
Cbilworth was perfectly dear in 
what be said in the House of 
Lords. ( do not understand why 
Mr Kinnock finds difficulty 
with it. 

Mr Kinnock: Does "best 
future” as defined by her in- 
dude a binding enforable assur- 
ance?

how long en forcible .assurances 
can be instituted; be must get 
legal advice on that. That is

Mrs Thatcher: The taxpayer

£L2 billion and guaranteed a 
further £1.6 billion. 

Mr Michael Meadewcroft

Mrs Thatcher This country 
invests abroad and British 
companies go abroad on a very 
considerable scale- For example,

In view of the success of the 
National Freight Corporation 
worker buy out, will she confirm 
it is still Government policy to 
encourage wider ownership in 
British industry? 

Mrs Thatcher: Yes. to farther 
privatization and to wider 
ownership, and we shall con- 
sider that bid along with all the 
others. 

• When a conclusion was 
reached over the future of BL 
Mr Channon would make a 
statement to the Commons and 
the Government accepted it was 
up to the House to debate and 
deride upon the negotiation, Mr 
John Biffen Leader of the 
Commons, said during ex- 
changes following his business 
statement. 

Mr Knmock had asked for a 
clear guarantee that the Com- 
mons would have a «hanr* loj 
debate the whole BL issue 
before any deal was struck. 


I Tenants* protection to stay 


HOUSES 


The Government was ndl‘ 
proposing in this -Raduunem to- 
introduce major legislation to 
recast the Rent Act. Mr John 
Patten, Minister for Housing, 
Urban Affair^ and Construc- 
tion. said during a. Commons 
debate on the .treatment of 
private tenants. 1 

The Government was ready 
to listen and ready to promote 
arguments about what coukl 
and should be done. The Gov- 
ernment had taken no derisions 
on what form any legislation 
should take to reduce controls 
over new tenancies. 

We have no intern ion (he 
said) of removing the protection 
enjoyed by existing tenants. 
That was one mistake made in 
1957; the removal of statutory 
controls from existing tenancies 
at the top end of the market led 
to widespread evictions by the 
voluntary landlords, those who 
were not landlords by choice 


and took the opportunity to 
obtain vacant possession and to 
ell up. 

But if we want in future to 
encourage the private sector to 
make unused" accomodation 
available for renting, and to 
invest in accomodation for rent, 
it is essential that for new 
letting, rents should provide 
economic returns. 

Local authorities estimated 
that in E n gla n d 545,000 private 
sector homes were empty in 
April 1985, nearly 100,000 of 
them in London where the 
problem of homelessness was 
greatest Many of those homes 
could be let to people who 
needed them if landlords were 
not inhibited by the effect of the 
Rent Act. 

An exposition motion assert- 
ing the right to buy from a non- 
residenual absentee landlord, 
the right to manage for both 
tenants and leaseholders of flats; 
and calling for a review of rent 
regulation so as to dose loop- 
holes in the Rent Act, was 


rejected by 258 votes to 177- 
Go vernraem majority, 81. 

A Government amendment 
asserting the need for a healthy 
and reviving private rented 
sector Ivith an adequate supply 
of sound homes to rent as being 
in the best interests of tenants 
and landlords and those looking 
for accomodation; and asserting 
the need for improved statutory 
safeguards to ensure proper 
management of privately- 
owned blocks of fiats, was 
agreed by 228 votes to 150- 
Govenunent majority, 78. 

Rach maoism, the exploita- 
tion by landlords of tenants in 
dilapidated private property, 
was alive and well in 1986, Mr 
Jeffrey Rooker, Opposition 
spokesman on housing, said, 
when opening the debate. 

He said the rights of two 
million families in private ten- 
ancies needed strengthening. 
Many of them did not have a 
secure home. Assured tenancies 
applied only lo newly con- 
structed dwellings. 


Alarm at forestry sale rumours 


Conservative and Labour MPs 
were united in pressing for more 
details of reports that the Gov- 
ernment was thinking of 
privatising up to three million 
acres of forestry land. 

But Mr John Biffen. Leader 
of the Commons, said during 
business questions he knew 
nothing of the reports. How- 
ever. ne would consider the 
situation and decide what to do 
in the light of what was revealed. 

Sir Peter Shore. Shadow 


Leader of the House, referred to 
rumours mentioned by Mr John 
Maxton (Glasgow, Caibcan, 
Lab). 

If a statement has been made 
outside the House (he said) will 
Mr Biffen make arrangements 
for a statement today? We have 
had enough of these statements 
being made outside this House. 
(Loud Labour cheers). 

Mr Robert Madennan (Caith- 
ness and Sutherland, SDP) 
asked for a denial of the reports 


about proposed privatization of 
Forestry Commission land. 
Land prices were already 
plummeting, because of falling 
agricultural incomes. 

Sir Find Hawkins (Norfolk 
South West, C) said he was 
totally opposed to any idea of 
selling forestry land. His 
consitutency bad what was 
probably the greatest forestry 
acreage in the country and it was 
greatly enjoyed for leisure pur- 
poses. 


New statistics 
to provide 
better picture 


EMPLOYMENT 

In order to ensure greater ac- 
curacy Lord Young afCraShain, 
Secretary of Slate for Employ- 
ment said in a stat e ment to the 
House of Lords, he had agreed 
that the compilation and 

publication of the monthly un- 
employment statistics would 
lake place some two weeks later 
than at jnesent 

This is not a major in 

presentation but (te said), the 
improved estimates win auow a 
more complete and accurate 
picture to be given of the latest 
labour market development 

Laid Stoddart of Swindon 
(Lab) said the statement ap- 
peared to have been forced out 
of him by Mr John Prescott in 
the Home of Commons who 
Lord Young of Grafiham bad 
been unwilling to meet in face- 
to-face discussion on the BBC 
Breakfast Time that morning. 

Why did be not make a proper 
statement in the first place (he 
sod) instead of attempting to 
<|jp the iT M*wy through by 
means of a written question? 

Such action shows complete 
insensitivity (he continued) and 
it would seem the Gove rnm ent 
has learnt nothing from the 
Westland affair and British 
Leyland where their a ttem pt s at 
covering up have led to lack of 
trust in them by the public and a 
catatrosphic drop in support In 
the country. 

The Paymaster General in the 
House of Commons said he had 
not been aware that No 10 was 
going to brief the press on these 
documents and bad not ap- 
proved of it doing so. but had 
Lend Young of Grafiham 
known of the briefing and if he 
had why did he not tell his 
deputy in the House of Com- 
mons. 

In the statement (said Lord 
Stoddart of Swindon) be says 
this is not a major change but 
dearly the government sees the 
laundering of serious unemploy- 
ment figures as a means of 
hiding a grave unemployment 
crisis. 

No doubt the changes were 
being made not really for statis- 
tical purposes but 'for political 
purposes. The laundered figures 
were part of a £1 million pub- 
licity campaign launched by the 
government to brainwash the 
public into believing the un- 
employment crisis was less 
grave than it really was. 

Lady Seear (L) said it was 
extramdinary that the Secretary 
of State had not found time to 
make the statement to the 
House rather than leaving peers 
to find out by reading it in the 
press. 

It was extraordinary, since 
there was a highly competent 


Departmen t of Employment, 
that so many changes needed to 
be made in the statistics. It 
could not be regarded as good 
statistical practice. 

Lent Yoang of Grafiham, said 
it was seldom that he felt angry 

in the House but he had to refute 
every stricture from Lord 
Stoddart of Swindon. 

- Before • he - had mentioned 
allegations of the PSmnaster 
General talking of leaks from 
No 10 be should look at the 
record which showed that no 
such comment had been made 
because there had been no such 

riling. 

At the Breakfast Time broad- 
cast, Mr Ptescort was asked 
whether, if he were Secretary of 
State »n«| his statisticians ad- 
vised him about the need for 
changes in statistics be would 
accept that advice, and he had 
replied that jt was a reasonably 
justified point, that he was 
prepared to accept. 

Knowing uf the great interest 
in both houses on employment 
matters it had been decided to 
announce the by writ- 

ten question but there had not 
been time for him to make a 
statement to the House of 
Lords. 

Referring to the alleged £1 
million campaign, be said it 
must be a very ineffective 
campaign because he knew 
nothing of it. 

The statement on changes to the 
unemployment figures was re- 
peated, amid laughter and loud 1 
Labour interruptions, in the 
Commons, - by Mr Ke nn eth 
Clarke, the Paymaster General 

Mr John Prescott, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
employment, said the eight-line 
statement was an insult to MPs’ 
intelligence. (Labour cheers). 

One is forced (he said) to read 
the library statement to see the 
real intent and impact of this 
further fiddling of the un- 
employment figures. 

Mr Clarke said Mr Prescott 
should take the unlikely step of 

general! t Tbe sjatisticraw 1 ^^ 
department said they bad 
discovered an unacceptable er- 
ror in the monthly fig ur es and 
asked for permission to correct 
that and this was given. 

Is be really saying to the 
House (he continued) that were 
be secretary of state for employ- 
ment he would say to the 
statisticians: “No, do not correct 
tins miaaid!; carry on mala 
what you regard as an enrol 
We know he would not say that. 
This morning on breakfasume 
television he was asked that 
question and had to agree that 
he would have made the self- 
same change. 1 do not -want-ta 
advise him on bow to behave to

take office. 


Home Secretary 
to chair crime 
prevention study 


Hopes for increased 
security cooperation 


ULSTER 


The Prime Minister said she 
had agreed with the Irish Prime 
Minister, Dr Garrett Fitzgerald, 
in their talks at Downing Street 
yesterday that the Anglo-Irish 
agreement must be im- 
plemented. 

Mrs Thatcher said in the 
Commons at question time that 
she also hoped for increased 
security cooperation across the 
Border. She very much wel- 
comed Dr FrtgerakTs decision 
to sign the European Conven- 
tion on the Suppression of 
Terrorism. 

Everything possible would be 
done to reassure Unionist opin- 
ion about structures of consulta- 
tion with them, and she hoped 
the SDLP would soon honour 
its commitment to enter into 
talks about devolution which 
would put much more power 
into a devolved Assembly. 

Mrs Thatcher was replying to 
Mr Mertyn Rees (Leeds South 
and Motley, Lab), a former 


Secretary of State for Northern 
Ireland, who complained that 
there bad been no statement to 
the House despite several recent 
developments. 

These included the reaction to 
the Anglo-Irish agreement in the 
Province; the reported calls 
from an elected representative 
to take over the parliament 
building at Stormont; and the 
report of the Ulster workers’ 
strike planned for March 3. 
Discussion was t a ki ng place 
elsewhere but not in the Com- 
mons, be said. 

Earlier, Mr Enoch Powell 
(South Dowo.OUP) asked: 
Docs she realize that hundreds 
of thousands of her fellow 
citizens, who she regards as no 
less British than her constituents 
in London, are looking to her to 
defend with courage and visibil- 
ity their rights and status? 

Mrs Th atcher replied: I will 
be seeing leaders of the Unionist 
parties next week and possibly 
the SDLP after that. I hope and 
believe that people who are 
completely Unionist in North- 
ern Ireland win accept the 
derisoas of this House. 


LAW AND ORDER 

Mr Desehts Hurd, the Home 
Secretary, told the Commons at 
question time that he is to chair 
a follow-up in the summer to the 
recent seminar on crime prevent 
tionto take stock of progress. I 
believe (he added) that there is 
huge scene fix 1 local schemes on 
many different lands of crime 
prevention and we are working 
hard to encourage these. 

Mr David- Madeas (Penrith 
and die Border, O said the 
whole community must be in- 
volved. What steps were being 
taken to get the message across 
that it was necessary to involve 
insurance companies, motor 
manufacturers, builders and 
small comm unity groups? 

Mr Hank He is right That is 
the main purpose of the semi- 
nar. On wider publicity, tire 
magpie television advertise- 
ments shown in London and the 
Midlands were followed in the 
next quarter for an 1 1 per cent 
decrease in bundaries. We are 
now extending this programme 
to the North. 

Mr Roy Hughes (Newport 
Fa«, Lab) drew the Home 
Secretary’s attention to a Com- 
mons order paper motion 
concerning the case of Peter 
William Jones. Yesterday (he 
continued) in Newport- Grown 
Court he received a life sen- 
tence. Many people in Newport 
and elsewhere cannot under- 
stand why this man with such a 
record of violence was allowed 
to roam the streets and even- 
tually end irpby raping a 7-year- 
okl girl, will be call for an 
mgenz review of this sentencing 
and parole procedure? 

Mr Honk I cannot comment 
on a sentence pasted in court by 
the independent judiciary and 1 
have no intention of dong so. 
But I will look into any aspects 
of that case which fall within my 
responsibility. 

Mr John Evans (St Helens 
North. Labk The best way to cut 
down crime would be to cut th6 
appalling level of unemploy- 
ment. Does he accept that one 
way of catting the appalling 
level of unemployment would 
be to accept the programme put 
forward by the employment 
select committee which would 
take 750,000 people out of the 
dole queues immediately? 

Mr Hud: I would not accept 
that; Ninety-five per cent of 
crime is crime against property. 
A large percentage of that is 
oppor tu nistic - not prepared 
king in advance. Crime preven- 
tion could cut down this figure 
substantially if better applied 


Mr John Stokes 
and Stourbridge, Cl: Since so 
much crime is concerned with 
motor cars, will you impress on 
motor manufacturers that they 
should use cars with burglar- 
proof locks? # 

Mr Hod: An excellent point. 
One of the results of the No 10 
seminar was an agreement that 
there should be a British stan- 
dard for car security to be 
prep ar ed by the British Stan- 
dards Institution precisely to 
deal with this point. 

Mr Gerald K anft aia, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
home affairs: Will be arrange fix 
the publication of the letter the 
Prime Minister’s office has sent 
to all participants in the so- 
called crime seminar last month 
from which it will be plain to 
anyone who reads it that the 
Government is not taking one 
firm action for crime prevention 
and not spending one penny of 
new money on crime preven- 
tion? It was less a seminar than 
an episode from Spitting Image. 



Hurd: Huge scope far 
local prevention schemes 

Mr Hind: I am amazed that 
he should make this mistake. 
How many people in Manches- 
ter and everywhere suffer from 
this opportunistic crime which 
could be prevented. The Gen- 
eral Secretary of the TUG Mr 
Norman Willis, was at the 
seminar. He spoke warmly to us 
on the way we should try to rally 
general support for crime 
prevention. That was the pur- 
pose of the seminar and the 
purpose of the letter to which 
Mr Kaufman refers.

Thatcher says 
she will stay 
as leader 

.Mrs Thatcher repeated during 
question times in the Commons 
her aim of leading the Conser- 
vative party to a third election 
victory. 

Mr Nicholas Wlnterton 
(Macclesfield, Q asked: Would 
she assure those of us on the 
Conservative benches who 
honourably disagree from time 
to time with Government policy 
bat do not question her coura- 
geous leadership or determina- 
tion to restore the economic and 
political -power of the UK- that 
-she will continue to respond 
robustly to the hypocritical 
irresponsible, carping cant of 
the Opposition panys and lead 
the Conservatives into a third 
successful general election? 

Mrs Tkathcer : Yes, on the 
same excellent policies which 
secured the first two victories. 

Mr Dennis Skinner 
(Bolsover, Lab) now that the 
Prime Minsiter in her recent 
broadcast has become very con- 
cerned about , the low paid and 
the levels of taxation, will she 
take the necessary steps to 
abolish the poll tax? 

Mrs Thatcher: There is no 
peril tax what we have proposed 
is a community charge. .which 
win be rebated. I note he favours 
a system in winch many people 
pay nothing in local rates but 
l- put up public expenditure. 


Police attack 
on youths 
‘damaging’ 

Mr Douglas Hand, the Home 
Secretary, admitted in the Com- 
mons that the attack on five 
youths by two police offices in 
North London two years ago 
was deeply damaging to the 
Metropolitan Police and would 
continue to be so unless and 
until h was cleared up. 

He was questioned over the 
incident by Mr Christopher 
Smith (Islington South and 
Finsbury. Lab) and Mr Gerald 
Kaufman, chief Opposition 
spokesman on home affairs. 

Mr Kanfrnau: There is a grave 
danger that unless the men 
responsible for this unwarranted 
crime are discovered and dealt 
with there will be an increase in 
public anxiety and the good 
name of the Metropolitan Police 
will be sullied. 

Will Mr Hurd make it dear 
that men who shield criminals 
within the Mctroplhan Police 
collude in the crime of these 
men? Is it appropriate for him to 
consider whether such men. 
unless they assist in discovering 
the eriminalx, should re main 
members of the pofice force? 

Mr Hurd said the burden of 
proof was exactly the same for 
police officers as for any other 
citizen. The Metropolitan Police 
had made it dear that if fresh 
evidence came to light it would 
be investigated. 


Realistic 
strategy 
to deal 
with crime 

HOME OFFICE 


A major initiative to deploy the 
unemployed on crime preven- 
tion work in the Community 
Programme was to be under- 
taken, Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary said during 
Commons questions. 

The Government's strategy 
for fighting crime was practical 
and realistic and the Govern- 
ment would pursue vigorously 
proposals arising from the 
Prime Minister’s crime preven- 
tion seminar. 

They will continue to provide 
the police with resources and 
powers to help them in their 
task, and the court with ade- 
quate powers to deal with 
offenders. 

Mr William Hamilton (Cen- 
tral Fife, Labh Violent crime has 
increased more than 60 per cent 
under this Government. Does 
Mr Hurd not regret the way the 
Tory party ana Tory Govern- 
ment deceived the electorate in 
1979 and 1983 elections by 
pretending there are simple 
solutions to these problems? 
The social causes of crime were 
real. The deprivation as a result 
of crumbling bousing stock and 
the massive increase in un- 
employment are important fac- 
tors and unless and until the 
Government realises these hard 
facts ibe figures will continue to 
escalate. 

Mr Hard said be did not 
believe there were simple an- 
swers to crime. But the Conser- 
vatives alone bad a practical and 
realistic strategy to deal with it 

There was endless debate 
about the root causes of crime. 

He a gre ed that social prob- 
lems, particularly those of the 
inner cities, needed to be tackled 
and the Government was doing 
this. 

Mr Timothy Yeo (South Suf- 
folk. O said that whatever 
theoretical research might pur- 
port to show, commonsensc 
suggested that people were in- 
fluenced by wnai they saw on 
television. And if young people, 
particularly, were subjected to a 
constant diet of violent tele- 
vision programmes there was 
likely to be an increase in 
violent behaviour. 

Mr Hrad agreed. Common- 
sense pointed in that direction, 
be said. This was why be was so 
anxious that the broadcasting 
authorities, in addition to the 
admirable existing guidelines, 
should exert themselves to 
make sure they were fully 
respected. 

Mr Donald Dixon (Jarrow, 
Lab) recalled that a constituent 
aged 15 had bought a lethal 
cross-bow. The Home Office 
had said it was an important 
matter which was kept under 
review. Had anything been done 
about it? Would the Govern- 
ment 'bring in legislation to 
prohibit the sale of these bows? 

Mr Hurd agreed there was 
public concent. The Govern- 
ment was looking urgently to sec 
if anything sensible could be 
dene.

Progress in 
talks about 
Cyprus 

Mrs Thatcher described her 
recent talks with Mr Turgat 
OzaL the Turkish Prime Min- 
ister as very good and said she 
believed he was making enor- 
mous strides in improving hu- 
man rights in his country. 

They had dicussed the situa- 
tion in Cyprus, she said, and 
they hoped both parts of the 
island which were currently 
artifically partitioned would co- 
operate with Mr Perez De 
Cuellar of the United Nations 
who was reeking a saisj factory 
solution in Cyprus. She was 
rralying to Mr Richard HJckmet 
(Gtanford and Scunthorpe Q 
who had asked her to comment 
on Anglo-Turkish relations 
following Mr Ozal’s visit and to 
agree that Turkey was commit- 
ted to a just and fair solution for 
both communities in Cyprus.

No remedy in Berlin firing range nuisance claim Test for upsetting 

industrial tribunal 


pticants; Mr John Mummery for 
the secretary of state. 

LORD JUSTICE MAY said 
that there was a proposal to 
establish a machine-gun range at 
Gaiow in West Berlin for use by 
British troops stationed there. 
The applicants were German 
citizens living near the site who 
feared that they would suffer 
nuisance as a result of the noise. 

The German court in West 
Berlin, where they first at- 
tempted to ventilate the matter, 
hod no jurisdiction to try any 
suit Involving a member of the 

Allied Kommandatura in Berlin 
unless authorized to do so. An 
application for such authority 
was refused. 

The applicants consequently 
issued a writ in the Chancery 
Division of the High Court, 
claiming, in a quia timet action, 
declarations against the Min- 
istry of Defence on the ground 
of anticipated nuisance. 

The Foreign Secretary. Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, then issued the 
first of the two certificates under 
section 40(3X«) of the Crown 
Proceedings Act 1947. which 
provided that such a certificate 
should “for the purposes of this 
Act be conclusive as to the 
matter so certified"'. 

. The certificate stated that 
“any liability of the Crown 
alleged in the {applicants'] ac- 
tion , . . arises otherwise than in 
respect of Her Majesty's Gov- 
ernment in the United 
Kingdom”. 

On April 16, 1984, Sir Robert 

Megarry. Vice-Chancellor. 

struck out the action against the 
Ministry of Defence but gave 
the applicants leave to add the 
Attorney General and Major 


General Gordon Lennox, the 
British military commandant in 
Berlin, as defendants {Trawnik 9 
Ministry of Defence {The Times 
April 19, 1984; p985] 1 WLR 
532). 

Subsequently, the Court of 
Appeal allowed the Attorney 
General's appeal a ping the 
joinder order ( Trawnik v Len- 
nox and Another ( The Times 
December 14, 1984; [1985] 1 
WLR 532). Major General 
Lennox’s application to set 
aside the proceedings against 
him had yet to be determined. 

On September 17, 1984, the 
Foreign Secretary issued the 
second certificate, under section 
21 of the State Immunity Act 
1978, which provided that such a 
certificate was “conclusive ev- 
idence on any question (a) 
whether any . . . territory is a 
constituent territory of a federal 
state — or as to the person or 
persons to be regarded {for the 
purposes of Part 1 of tbc Act] as 
the head or government of a 
state . . .“. 

The certificate stated that 
Germany was a stale and that 
the persons to be regarded as its 
government included the 
kommandatura of Berlin, 
including Major General Len- 
nox. 

The third certificate, issued 
on November 1. 1984. was in the 
same terms as the first, issued 
under the 1947 Art, except that 
it referred to the action as 
amended to include the Attor- 
ney General and Major General 
Lennox. 

On December 17, 1984, Mr 
Justice McNeill gave leave' to 
issue proceedings for judicial 
review of the certificates and 


ordered preliminary issues to be 
tried as to: “whether the fact 
that the certificates are . . . 
conclusive as to the matters 
referred to . . . precludes judicial 
review of the certificates in 
relation to the matter certified 
and renders inadmissible all 
evidence ... in contradiction of 
the terms of the certificates.” 

The Divisional Court held 
that judicial review did not lie in 
respect of the certificates, which 
precluded the admission of any 
evidence in respect of the nut- 
ters certified in contradiction of 
the certificates. 

On appeal, the applicants 
sought principally to attack the 
two certificates under the 1947 
Act. They drew attention to the 
words “for the purposes of this 
Act" in section 40(3Xo) and 
submitted that the certificate 
was not conclusive as to 
proceedings for judicial review. 

Further, it was submitted that 
in the Chancery Division 
proceedings, a certificate could 
only be conclusive if it was a 
valid one; it was for the courts 
and not the secretary of state to 
determine whether a certificate 
was valid: see Anismlnic Ltd v 
Foreign Compensation 
Commission (11969] 2 AC 147, 
170) per Lord Reid. 

There were numerous matters 
which, if the applicants were 
allowed to refer to them in 
judicial review proceedings, 
would be more than sufficient to 
show that the statement in each 
certificate was so obviously 
incorrect that it had to be a 
nullity. 

But in his Lordship's view, 
the fact that the Divisional 
Court had reached the cotrer 


decision could now be shown 
merely by reference to the 
judgments of the Court of 
in R v Registrar qf 


C ompanies, Ex parte Central 
Bank of India {The Times 
August 2, 1985; [1986] 2 WLR 
177). 

In that case the relevant 
statutory provision was section 
98(2) of the Companies Act 
1948, which provided that a 
certif 


in pursuance of the Act “shall be 
conclusive evidence -that the 
requirements of this Part of this 
Act . . . have been, complied 
with.” 

The ratio of the decision was 
directly in point in the instant 
appeal: As a matter of construc- 
tion, the words “shall ... be 
conclusive as to the matter so 
certified” in section 40(3X6) 
were equivalent to a provision 
that the certificate should be 
conclusive evidence of the mat- 
ters certified, whether those 
were questions of fact or law or 
of mixed fact and law. 

Such wonts did not preclude 
an application for judicial re- 
view of the certificate but such 
an application, if based on the 
proposition that what had been 
certified was- so dearly wrong 
that the certificate bad to be a 
nullity, would be bound to fail 
because the evidence which 
counsel would wish to call to 
jvc that very thing could not 
■ adduced. 

So far as the certificate under 
the State Immunity Act 1976 

was concerned, the position was 
a fortiori having regard to the 
actual wording of section 21 of 
that ACT. 

If it were necessary to decide 


the point, the matters certified 
in’ the certificates were “matters 
of state” relating to questions of 
recognition arising in the con- 
duct of foreign relations and, 
once held to be so, were not 
renewable by the courts: see 
Council qf Civil Service Unions v 
Minister for the Civil Service 
([1985] AC 374). 

Finally, his Lordship agreed 
with the view expressed by the 
Divisional Court that section 14 
of the Tribunals and Inquiries 
Act 1971 dkl not apply to the 
issue of the certificates by the 
Foreign Secretary in the instant 


ft followed that the prelimi- 
nary issues had to be answered 
in the secretary of stale's favour 
and the appeal should be dis- 
missed.

Neale v Hereford and Worces- 
ter County Comal 

Where an industrial tribunal 
had done its job of finding facts, 
applying the relevant law and 
reaching the conclusions to 
which h$ findings and the 
experience of its members led it, 
it would not be often tint an 
appellate tribunal or court could 
legitimately say that its conclu- 
sion offended reason or was one 
to which no reasonable tribunal 
could have come. 

The. Court of Appeal (Lord 
Justice May. Lord Justice Ralph 
Gibson and Lord Justice 
Stocker) so stated on February 
18, allowing the employers 
appeal from the Employment 
Appeal Tribunal. 

* LORD JUSTICE MAY said 
that an industrial tribunal was 
in many ways an industrial jury. 
It knew its area, each member 
had substantial experience 
of industrial problems, and

R 


O’Shea v Immediate Sound 
Services Ltd 

Periods of time applicable in 
the. High COurt before cases 
were struck out for want of 
prosecution were not relevant to 
actions in industrial tribunals, 
Mr Justice Poppleweil said on 
February 13, sitting in the 
Employment Appeal Tribunal 
with Mr H. Robson and Mrs M. 
Sunderland, when dismissing an 
appeal from an industrial 
chairman's decision to strike 


out an originating application 
under rule 12(2X0 of the Sched- 
ule to the Industrial Tribunals 
(Rules of Procedure) Regula- 
tions (SI 1980 No 884). 

His Lordship said that indus- 
trial tribunals ought to be swift 
and they usually were. If ap- 
plicants or their advisers 
thought that die normal ap- 
proach to litigation which per- 
tained elsewhere could be 
applied to industrial tribunals 
they should be disabused of the 
idea. 


heard that type of case regularly. 

When it had not erred in law, 
neither the Employment Appeal 
Tribunal nor the Court of 
Appeal should disturb its de- 
cision unless one coukl say in 
effect “My goodness, that was 
certainly wrong". 

LORD JUSTICE RALPH 
GIBSON said that it would be 
unwise and potentially unfair 
for a tribunal to rely on matters 
which occurred to members 
after the hearing, not having 
been mentioned or treated as 
relevant by the parties, 'without 
the party against whom the 
paint was raised being given the 
opportunity to deal with H, 
unless the tribunal could be 
entirely sure that the point was 
so dear that the party could not 
make any useful comment in 
explanation. 

A tribunal was entitled to. and 
should, have regard to a point 
which had not been mentioned 
or to which little or no weight 
had been attached, according to 
their own assessment of hTbut 
. in forming, that assessment it 
should pay careful and proper 
attention to the course of the 
hearing aa d the way in which 
and the extent to which a point 

had been made and relied upon.

Mr David Attenborough, 
tbe broadcaster, claimed the

news coverage of violence in

to outlaw a “laundry list" of 
acts which it was now possible 
to see on the television screen. 
"I have to tell Mr Churchill 
that the preying mantis does 
four of these things at the

The proposed changes 
would extend the Act to

He said that although the

Anthrax fears over 
pack of foxhounds 


By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 


A pack of foxhounds in 
north Devon is being checked 
for anthrax after being fed an 
infecied'pony carcass. 

The pony was one of two 
that died of tbe disease, possi- 
bly catching spores from 
ground where infected cattle 
were buried more than 30 
years ago. 

The pony carcass was fed to 
bounds at Dulverton West 
kennels before veterinary sur- 
geons realized it died of 


anthrax. The pack has been 
treated with antibiotics, but is 
still bring closely watched. 

Ministry of Agriculture offi- 
cials are also ievestigating 
another anthrax outbreak near 
Ilfracombe, eight miles away. 

Anthrax spores can- remain 
active almost indefinitely un- 
less deliberately destroyed. 
The normal practice is to bum 
infected carcasses. The field

Russia puts huge space 
station into orbit as 
congress curtain-raiser 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The contrast in the space 


era has been hi g hli ghted by the 
Soviet launch ofa giant, new- 
generation space station as a 
spectacular curtain-raiser to 
next week's Communist Party 
' congress. 

The successful launch of the 
station, complete with six 
docking positions, came just 
over three weeks after the 
American shuttle disaster. 

Western experts here 
claimed that the new craft 
underlined the steady progress 
in the Soviet manned space 
programme, in contrast to the 
more dramatic achievements 
and failures of the Americans. 

As part of the Kremlin’s 
campaign to depict the Soviet 
Union as the leader in the 
peaceful exploration of space, 
the station is called “Mir% the 
Russian word for peace. 

According to Mr Alexei 
Leonov, the deputy head of 
the Soviet cosmonaut training 
centre, the launch represented 
the start of the transition from 
research to “large-scale pro- 
duction activities” in space. 

Although at present un- 
manned, Mir is intended as a 
base for a permanently 
manned complex orbiting the 
Earth. 

Describing the facilities on 


board the new space laborato- 
ry, Mr Leonov said that 
conditions for the cosmonauts 
— now undergoing a special 
training programme — would 
indude separate cabins, and 
even individual desks and 
armchairs. 

He added that it would only 
be possible to determine how 
long the station could remain 
in dibit after the completion 
of its first flight. 

The Launch caused wide 
interest among Western ob- 
servers here. Apart from the 
technological aspects, the tim- 
ing and manner of the launch 
was seen as a public relations 
triumph for the Kremlin very 
much in the mould of the new 
image being presented by Mr 
Mikhail Gorbacfaov.the party 


The Soviet Union, which 
put the first man in space in 
1 96 1 . has long declared its aim 
of creating a permanently 
manned station in space. 

Salyut 7, the Soviet Union's 
other space station, has been 
~in mbit since 19&2, but Mr 
Leonov explained yesterday 
that it was too small for the 
now being implemented 
Soviet experts. 

The last Soviet mission 
ended prematurely in Novem- 
ber last year, when cosmonaut 


Vladimir Vasyutin was struck 
down by a mystery illness and 
had to be brought back to 
Earth. 

Study of subsequent pub- 
lished accounts of the aborted 
mission convinced diplomats 
that the cosmonaut had suf- 
fered what amounted to a 
nervous crack-up in space.

Israel extends hunt for 
kidnapped soldiers 

from Our Own Correspondent, Jerusalem 


Another Israeli was kilted in 
south Lebanon yesterday after 
troops searching for two kid- 
Iftappcd sokficra ran into rests- 
tance from local militia. 

1 A fierce battle, using tanks 
land artillery, pinned down 
T Pff i of the Finnish battalion 
serving with Unify (UN Inter- 
im Fence In Lebanon) and 
skirmishes raged along tire 10- 
mile front and deep into 
Lebanese territory where the 


from Ian Murray, Jernsatem 

Moderate West Bank lead- said was Mr Elias Frey, Mayor 

of Bethlehem. Palestinians 
would now have to face up to 
reality, he said. 

The solution would have; to 
be thrashed out between! lire 
Americans, the Israelis and 
the people of the West Bank 
and the Gaza Strip. 

Mr Frey, however, is con- 
sidered an Unde Tom figure, 
although Israel regards him as 

one of the few Arabs prepared 
to defy PLO terror threats and 
to seek out for moderate 
policies. 

leading Israeli politicians 
were pleased but not over- 
optimistic about the Kings 
statement. Mr Peres said he 
was not surmised because the 
main stumbling block to peace 
had always beat the PLO. 
Now a new road would have 
to be found. t 

Mr Yitzhak Rabin, the - Is- 
raeli Defence Minister, was 
more enthusiastic. He said 
that a golden opportunity had 
now appeared. The Palestin- 
ians had an historic chance to 
take their destiny in their own 
hands. 

A Foreign Ministry spokes- 
man said King Husain's 
speech merely marked the end 
of a wasted year in which 
nothing was done because ofa 
futile attempt to enrol the 
PLO. 

The spokesman said the 
PLO were like zombies and it 
was important to try to elimi- 
nate their . influmm in the 
occupied territories if there 
were to be any chance of 

p ea c e, l« 

The Foreign Ministry posi- 
tion remains that the only 
realistic way ahead is for 
direct negotiations with Jor- 
dan without any PLO involve- 
ment of any kind. ! 

The King, however, is not 
seen as having slammed the 
door in the face of the PLO. 
“The King always keeps many 
doors open,” the -spokesman 
said. 

Israel is now going through 
the speech in detail, checking 
what it sees as many factual 
errors in the King's analysis. 

The US is likely to be asked 
to clarify its actions as de- 
scribed by the King, because 
they are at variance with 
Israel’s own understanding of 
'backing. They~ were the only the facts. | 

This potential dispute be- 
tween Israel and the US may 
make: it more difficult for the 


era refused yesterday to join 
King Husain of Ionian in 
abandoning the Palestine Lib- 
eration Organization as a part- 
ner in the search for Middle 
East peace. 

He put an end to ft year-long 
search for a joint negotiating 
position with the PLO by 
saying he could no longer co- 
operate politically with it ^un- 
til their wmd is their hood”. 

He saved this announce- 
ment for the end- of a 200- 
minute televised speech, 
which finished just in tune for 
every east Jerusalem newspa- 
per to write editorials de- 
nouncing his decision. 

In his speech the King called 
on “Palestinians in the occu- 
pied te rritories and the dias- 
pora, as wen as Arab capitals 
and organizations” to take 
over the job of finding a 
solution from the PLO. 

He tried to speak directly to 
the people of the occupied 
territories, praising their cour- 
age in staying on their land 
and urging them to “stand 
talT. He was dearly appealing 
to them to come forward and 
help Him to seek peace with- 
out the PLO. 

Mr Hanna Siniora, the edi- 
tor of M-Fajr, is a Palestinian 
who is prepored to negotiate 
and who was accepted by the 
US as a potential delegate to a 
peace conference because of 
his public stand against terror- 
ism. 

But yesterday he was sure 
that no one would accept the 
King’s offer, because, he said, 
only the PLO was prepared to 
fight Amt the right of Palestin- 
ians to have their own nation. 

Most significantly, bis 
words were echoed by Mr Zafr 

et-Masri. He was appointed 
mayor of the city of Nablus at 
the end of last year as part of 
an experiment by Mr Shimon 
Peres, the Isradi Prime Minis- 
ter, on handing over power at 
local level to responsible Arab 
leaders as part of a gradual 
process of devolution. 

He was chosen because he 
bad no PLO background, and 
ihas strong connections with 
jJordan, where his nephew is 
Foreign Minister. But yester- 
day he refused to consider 
doing anything without PLO 


search continued. 

Major-General Ori Orr, of 
brad’s Northern Command, 
said there was no proof the 
misting men had been execut- 
ed desjnte claims by an anony- 
mous caller to a Beirut 
newspaper saying he was from 
the Islamic Resistance Move- 
ment 

General Orr said lie was 
confident the kidnappers had 
not been abte to take their 
hostages out of the area and 


the search would continue - 
especially in response to de- 
mands by Islamic groups. 

There have been no arrests 
since Monday night when two 
men, thought to have been 
some of the kidnappers, were 
captured. But large caches of 
arms and ammunition h zl j z 
been discovered, convincug 
the Israelis to continue search- 
ing 

The search is taking on 
political significance and 
Amal Shia militia leaders, 
who control the area north of 
the buffer zone, fear -the 
Israelis may extend the zone 
as they search timber into 
Amal territory. 

UN headquarters at 
Naqqoura have bean) of vil- 
lagers being ill-treated try Is- 
raeli army units — reminiscent 
of the. iron fist policy that 
caused Israel's unpopularity 
before its withdrawal last year.

They and Bishop Tutu have 
called for international eco- 
nomic sanctions to be im- 
posed on South Africa. - On 
Wednesday, they disclosed 
that they had appealed., on 
behalf of the SACC, to foreiga 


bankers to seize South African 
assets abroad rather than agree 
to re-schedule the. country’s 
debts. 

Last July, as unrest swept 
black townships in the wake of ‘ 
the Government’s declaration 
of a stale of emergency. Presi- 
dent Botha rejected a request 
from Bishop Tutu for a meet- 
ing. pleading a heavy schedule 
and saying he could not talk to 
persons who refused to 


"denounce violence and civil 
disobedience”. 

Bishop T uiu's latest request 
was prompted by the violence 
in Alexandra, the black suburb 
in north Johannesburg, where 
23 people are now estimated 
to have died. 

An elderly woman, said to 
have been set on fire after 
bang accused of being a witch, 
died of her burns in hospital 
on Wednesday night Most of 


the deaths were 
police gunfire. 

Life in the Alexandra shanty 
town, which is unusual in that 
it lies close to white residential 
areas, has returned to a sem- 
blance of normality, although 
schools remain shut and 
heavily-armed police are still 
patrolling its streets. 

Incidents of continuing un-

Parents in 
schools 
trek to 
Zimbabwe 

From Jan Raath 
Harare 

Many anxious South Afri- 
can parents are asking Zimba- 
bwe education authorities to 
allow their children to be 
taught in Zimbabwe’s multi- 
racial schools. 

The national news agency 
Sana qaoted Mr Dongai 
Mntmnhnfca. the Minister of 
Education, as saying that his 
office was receiving “20 or 
more” applications dally from 
white, black, CoJoared (mixed 
race) mid Asian Sooth Afri- 
cans. 


However, South African ex- 
iles interviewed here said they 
enderstood most of the appli- 
cations had come from muted- 
race families in the Cape and 
TransvaaL 

It is also reported that 
South African parents are 
extremely worried by contain- 
ing street violence.One father 
from the Cape Town Coloured 
township of Mitchell’s Plain, 
trying to secure a place for his 
son in a local school here, said: 
“Several of my kid’s friends 
were put in hospital by police 
ballets and sjamboks. It’s only 
a matin of time before he gets 
hurt and I don’t want that." 

Ministry sources said they 
had also received applications 
from Sooth African exiles in 
Botswana fearful of Sooth 
African commandos crossing 
the border. 

Some children of South 
African families have been 
accepted into Zimbabwe 
schools but only after their 
families have been granted 
residency. 

With a 200 per cent increase 
in enrolment in government 
schools since independence, 
the over-bnrdened 

Zimbabwean education sys- 
tem cannot absorb foreigners 
and so adheres to the policy 
that both its children and their 
parents prove residency before 
being accepted. 

**Onr resources are 
stretched to the absolnte *»"»»>- 
We’ve got enough problems 
dealing with our own pupils, 
let alone foreigners,** said die 
headmaster of a primary 
school which recently admit- 
ted three Sooth Africans. 


Amin claims his 
troops play 
key Uganda role 

From Charles Harrison. Nairobi 


Genera! ldi Amin, the for- 
mer Ugandan dictator now 
living in exile in Saudi Arabia, 
claims he is concerned about 
President Yoweri Museveni 
controlling the southern part 
of Uganda while the former 
Army holds the north. 

Speaking from Jiddah. Gen- 
eral Amin said; “These people 
in the north are not sleeping — 
if Museveni continues to ad- 
vance towards the north. Gen- 
eral Basilio Okello will move 
his troops to Kampala." 

General Amin, who ruled 
Uganda from 1971 to 1979 
before being deposed by a 
combined force of Tanzanian 
troops and Ugandan guerril- 
las, said the thousands of his 
former troops who fled with 
him to Sudan and Zaire, but 
then returned after the over- 
throw of President Milton 
Obote last July, were still a 
cohesive force in nonhem 
Uganda and were working 
with General Okello. 

He says that General Okello 
bas “fighting patrols" near 
KampalaTThe more time we 
get, the more the training for 
an offensive." 

Officials in Kampala denied 
his claim that there had been 
an attempted coup against 
President Museveni in Kam- 
pala in the past few days. 

They also denied that north- 
erners living in southern 
Uganda had been harassed 


and killed and “their houses 
have been burnt with them 
inside". 

General Amin said two 
African countries, which he 
would not name, were sup- 
porting President Museveni’s 
troops. “I advise those coun- 
tries to leave Uganda to scule 
its own problems peacefully- 1 



General Amin: (he people 
are not sleeping. 

am appealing 10 Ugandans not 
to kill themselves. 

“I love all the tribes of 
Uganda. My Army consisted 
of all tribes," said the general. 

The former dictator says he 
maintains close contact with 
Uganda, even though he is 
being pressed by Saudi Arabi- 
an authorities not to involve 
himself in Ugandan politics. 


44 die in Sri 
Lanka blast 
and clashes 

Colombo (AP) — At least 44 
people have been killed in 24 
hours in Sri Lanka's Northern 
and Eastern provinces, gov- 
ernment officials said. 

A military spokesman said 
security forces carried out an 
anti-guerrilla offensive in (he 
predominantly Tamil Jaffna 
district on Wednesday, hours 
after 36 civilians and four 
soldiers were killed in a 
landmine Mast 
Troops assisted by light 
aircraft and helicopters at- 
tacked two guerrilla hideouts, 
killing four and injuring sev- 
en. 

*We have repeatedly 
warned civilians to stay away 
from terrorist hideouts. Our 
targets were isolated and there 
was no reason for innocent 
people to live in those areas", 
the spokesman said. 


Poles reprieve 
teacher 
ordered out 

Wroclaw, Poland (Reuter) 
— An American teacher due to 
be deponed from Poland yes- 
terday won a last-minute re- 
prieve from the Communist 
authorities to spend at least 
another month here with her 
Polish husband. 

Donna Sue Kersey, from 
Kemucky.who has lived in 
Poland since 1981 and has a 
one-year-old daughter, had 
her application for a residence 
permit and visa extension 
rejected without explanation 
last November. But she stayed 
illegally. Police detained her 
for 24 hours earlier this month 
and ordered her to leave 
Poland. But while she was 
packing yesterday, a police- 
man railed at her flat and 
summoned her to the passport 
office. She was given a visa 
until March 18.

White House 
dilemma after 
Congress vote 
on Philippines 

From Michael Binyoo, Washington 


Nailing colours to the Manila mast 


As an angry Congress over- 
whelmingly passed a resolu- 
tion condemning the 
Philippine election as a “mas- 
sive fraud", the Reagan Ad- 
ministration has decided to 
deliver a telling snub to Presi- 
dent Marcos by sending only a 
low-level diplomat to his inau- 
guration. 

Normally a senior official 
such as Vice-President George 
Bush, would represent Presi- 
dent Reagan at the inaugura- 
tion of a close US ally. But 
after his own condemnation of 
the election, Mr Reagan is also 
unlikely to send any message 
of congratulation to the Phil- 
ippine leader. 

5? The Senate's non-binding 
££ resolution, passed by 85—9 
votes on Wednesday, called 
on the President personally to 

convey its concern to Mr 

Marcos. It said the elections 
re “were marked by such wide- 
^ spread fraud that they cannot 
be considered a fair reflection 
p* of the will of the people.” 
jj,' Conservative Republicans, 
do such as Senator Robert Dole, 
i* the majority leader, have 
” urged caution, saying Con- 
gress needed more “concrete 
evidence" of fraud before 
cutting off aid. 

His caution reflects the 
dilemma of the Administra- 
tion. Mr George Shultz, the 
Secretary of State, also urged a 
continuation of aid. He told a 
Senate budget committee: 
“We have on our hands a very 
delicate and difficult situa- 
tion. and we don't want to 
jump at it with precipitous

Habib, the US special envoy, 
was “gening around very 
carefully” in Manila, consult- 
ing all sides. 

But the .Administration is 
finding it ever harder to 
counsel moderation with a 
rising tide of emotion in 
Congress and the country. Its 
argument that it must main- 
tain good relations with Ma- 
nila because of the US bases 
has provoked hostile reaction 
among Democrats. 

“If we don't pull the plug on 
President Marcos, in due 
course the Philippine people 
will puli the plug on the 
United States and our bases.” 
said Senator Jim Sasser, a 
Tennessee Democrat who has 
introduced legislation to cut 
off all aid. 

Just as over South African 
sanctions. President Reagan, 
reluctant to condemn anyone 
preaching anti-communism, 
is being forced to take a 
tougher stance to maintain the 
policy initiative. 

The White House has seen 
the present crisis coming for a 
long time. But while deter- 
mined not to be seen under- 
mining a long-standing US 
ally, in the way President 
Carter was accused of under- 
mining the Shah of Iran, the 
Administration realizes that 
Mr Marcos must go. and go 
soon, if street riots and chaos 
are to be averted. 

However, the Administra- 
tion docs not know at the 
moment how it can help a 
peaceful transition, given the 
bitterness of all sides. The

action.”He said Mr Philip _ Habib mission is seen here as 


playing for time, in the hope 
that Mr Marcos will see the 
strength of feeling ranged 
against him. ' - 

One official said the Ad- 
ministration was “walking a~ 
tightrope by trying to be a 
constructive — and not de- 
structive — influence". It 
wanted to avoid any step that 
would “radicalize Marcos or 
Aquino". 

Mr Larry Speakes, the 
White House spokesman, has 
therefore described any steps 
to cut off aid as “premature”. 
Mr Shultz said on Wednesday 
that US military aid remains 
the best and most effective 
tool to promote the reform 
and development of a 
country's armed forces. 

This year the US is to give 
Manila military aid totalling 
S54.7 million (£37.7 million) 
and economic aid of $181.2 
million. 



Ambassadors of the coun- 
tries of the European Commu- 
nity caned on Mrs Corazon 
Aquino, the opposition leader, 
yesterday in what appeared to 
be an unprecedented diplo- 
matic gesture. 

Mr Robin McLaren of Brit- 
ain was joined by the ambas- 
sadors of Ireland. Spain, the 
Netherlands, France. Belgium 
and Italy, while West Germa- 
- ny and Denmark were repre- 
sented by charge d’affaires. 

The envoys, who went to 
Mrs Aquino's offices at her 
invitation, were later joined 
by the ambassadors of Swit- 
zerland, Norway, Austria, Fin- 
land and Sweden in the 
strongest repudiation so far of 
President Marcos's claim to 
have won the presidential 
elections. 

The Japanese Ambassador 
followed his European col- 
leagues later with a visit at bis 
own request. Though Japan 
has not sent any congratula- 
tory message to Mr Marcos, 
the embassy has also request- 
ed an audience with him. 

The Dutch Ambassador, Mr 
Weiger Hell em ^speaking as 
the present chairman of the

by the two sides said Mrs 
Aquino reiterated her deter 
minaiion "to vindicate the 
people's verdict and assume 
the presidency at the earliest 
possible time''. 

The visit was interpreted 
here as a strong snub for the 
Marcos Government. When 
EEC diplomats visited the 
Foreign Ministry later die first 
question pot to them by the 
Government concerned their 
discussions with Mrs Aquino. 

- As a follow-up to their 
gesture yesterday the EEC 
governments have been con- 
ridering a boycott or low-Jcvri

Marcos's inauguration cere-

small ceremony, perhaps at

Palace, with the official expla-

Party sons 
executed 
for rape 

Peking (AP) — Two Chinese 
I journalists, reportedly the 
sons of senior Communist 
Party figures, have been exe- 
cuted for rape. 

The Xinhua news agency 
said three men were executed 
and three others jailed for 
between three and 20 years for 
raping or molesting 48 women 
between 1981 and 1984. 

It said the case was the 
biggest reported since the 
Communist Party last month 
launched its crackdown on 
corruption by those in privi- 
leged social positions. 

Chinese television yester- 
day screened film of the men 
being convicted and then be- 
ing driven off to the Shanghai 
execution ground where “their 
execution had been warmly 
welcomed by residents”. 

The pro-Peking Hong Kong 
newspapers Wen Wei Po and 
Ta Rung Poo said Chen 
Xiaomeng, who was executed, 
and Chen Binglang, who was 
jailed, were the sons of Mr 
Chen Qiwu, former head of 
the Communist Party propa- 
ganda department in Shang- 
hai. 

Another of those executed 
was Hu Xiaoyang, son of Hu 
Ljiao, the chairman of the 
Shanghai municipal People's 
Congress.’ 

Xinhua said that Chen 
Xiaomeng was a reporter for 
Minzhu Yu Fazhi (Democracy 
and the Legal System), a 
prominent law-and-order 
magazine. 

His brother, a worker in a 
civil aviation factory, was 
sentenced to 20 years in jaiL 

Hu Xiaoyang, the other 
reporter executed, worked for 
I an architectural journal. 

The third man executed was 
Ge Zhiwen, a worker in a 
Shanghai perfume factory. 

According to unofficial re- 
ports, the grandson of the late 
Marshal Zhu De was executed 
in 1982 for rape fait the case 
was not publicly reported.

Soviet envoy 
‘arrested 
for smuggling’ 

Tokyo (AP) — The Soviet 
Union's Ambassador to Japan 
has reportedly been arrested 
for trying to smuggle electron- 
ic products into Moscow. 

Quoting the West German 
newspaper Bild Am Sonniag, 
Kyodo News Service and the 
daily Mainichi Shimbun said 
Mr Pyotr Abrosimov, aged 73 
was arrested at Moscow air- 
port after he was found with 
29 electronic products, includ- 
ing an electronic calculator 
and a videotape recorder. 

One Soviet Embassy official 

denied the report, saying; “I 
believe it is a lie”. Another 
confirmed that Mr Abrosimov 
had returned to Moscow but 
said she had not heard of hi* 
arrest 

Kyodo, quoting Japanese 
Government sources, said Mr 
Abrasunov was very dose to 
die late Soviet leader. Leo n j d 
Brezhnev, but was not on the 
same good terms with Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov. 

The sources would not con- 
firm the reports of his arrest 
but speculated that he may 
soon lose his position.

How assnred is West 
Germany's position as a 
Irocbpin of the W esters Alli- 
ance? Without its foil and 
active participation there 
would be a vacuum in the heart 
of Europe and a deva st a ti ng 
gap in the AEthncc structure. 

I have been paying particu- 
lar attention to this question 
during my talks in West 
Germany this week. But I a m 
convinced that it does not 
really arise so long as the 
preseat Government remains 
in power. 

Although one should never 
forget that it is a coalition, 
with differences of emphasis 
between the Christian Demo- 
crats and the Free Democrats, 
its commitment to the Alliance 
is not in doubt. There is 
particular pride that the Gov- 
ernment kept its nerve over die 
Euro-missiles wbfn so many 
people were saying that it 
would be impossible to deploy 
them against such strident 
opposition. 

At the same time, this is a 
government eager for dialogue 
with the Soviet Union. It was 
one of die first to press for a 
summit meeting between Pres- 
ident Reagan and Mr 
Gorbachov. 

Now, after the atmospheric 
success at Geneva in Novem- 
ber, there is concern (hat (be 
next meetup in Washington in 
the smnmer should produce 
score specific progress. This 
might take tire form of an 
agreement on chemical weap- 
ons, or conceivably —so I have 
been told — on conventional 
forces in the MBFR negotia- 
tions in Vienna. 

But attention is particularly 
directed to American sugges- 
tions for responding to Mr 
Gorbachov’s proposals on in- 
termediate range missiles 
which Mr Paul Nitze, Presi- 
dent Reagan's special adviser 
on arms control, has been 
taking around European capi- 
tals. 

I detect some scepticism in 
Bonn as to whether the idea of 
removing all such missiles 
from "Europe is immediately 
practicaL ■ It seems to be 
regarded as a somewhat dis- 
tant ideal. I also sensed a 
preference, if medium range 
missiles are to be eliminated, 
for treating them all alike 
whoever they are sited — 
rather than allowing the Sovi- 
et Union to keep half its SS20s 
in Asia as an interim arrange- 
ment. 


Prospect of second 
phase of detente 


What I have not found hi 
governing circles in Bonn, 
however, is any pressure for 
British and French conces- 
sions on their independent 
nuclear deterrents. 

The critical questions about 
Germany's role in the Atlantic 
Alliance would arise, though, 
only if there were a change of 
government in Bonn. In my 
conversation with Herr Johan- 
nes Ran, the Social Democrat- 
ic challenger for the 
Chancellery, I formed two 
distinct impressions on thk 
point — that be does attach 
importance to the Alliance, but 
that he wants to keep (he 
greatest possible freedom of 
manoeuvre on specific policies. 

An SPD Government, ue 
told me, woold offer the pros- 
pect of a second phase of 
detente. Bat it would remain in 
Nato. It would want to reduce 
the level of armaments, bid 
only by negotiations. 

Bat what if agreement could 
not be reached with the Soviet 
Union on Euro-raissiles? At 
this point Herr Ran was 
reluctant to be drawn. He 
would want to remove the 
missiles from West Germany 
only as agreed Nato policy, but 
oe did not want to makesnch a 
committment now for fear of 
weakening his hand within the 
Alliance. 

He was somewhat delphic 
asto whether he wonld favour 
concessions on the British and 
rreneb deterrents for the sake 
o* a missile agreement. These 
were first of a U ques- 
tioned for the British and 
Erench theiwelves, he raain- 
tained. But then he added that 

triiole had no more nuclear 
weapons than the British and 
french have together now. 

ine overall conclusion I 
drew was that an SPD Govern- 
Herr Ran might

10,000

Delhi (AP) - Some 10,000 
demonstrators and about 100 
opposition deputies were ar- 
rested yesterday in a protest 
against recent government- 
ordered price rises, police 
said. 

As many as 20,000 demon- 
strators thronged the streets 
outside Parliament on the 
opening day of the new budget 
session, which was boycotted 
by opposition parties. 

Police said about 100 oppo- 
sition deputies and their sup- 
porters voluntarily placed 
themselves under arrest. 

Some demonstrators broke 
police lines during the rally 
and smashed the windscreens 
of several government buses. 

Women activists beat their 
breasts, chanting “Prices are 
going up — what are we to 
do?" Other demonstrators, 
carrying flags and banners, 
shouted: “Down, down with 
(Prime Minister) Rajiv 
Gandhi." 

President Zail Singh told 
Parliament that the country 
was feeing several crucial 
economic problems and that 
progress could not be made 
without sacrifices by citizens 
and “hard decisions" by the 
Government. “The question 
basically js whether we want 
to stand on our own feet or 
not." he said.

Fact Nasa 
chiefs did 
not know 

From Mohsin Ah' 
Washington 

A presidential commission 
fswestigatmg the Challenger 

explosion has said that at least 
three key Nasa officials did 
not know that some rocket 
engineers had advised against 
the launching of the shuttle ou 
January 28 because of cold 
weather. 

The commission said that 
engineers for the shuttle 
booster rocket builder, Morton 
Thiokol, had straggly urged 
ag ain st the flHated launching. 

According to a shiwiMit 
the panel learnt on die day 
before the launch that Morton 
Thiokol had recommended 
that Challenger should not 
blast off because of the weath- 
er. ^Alfheagjh senior • Morton

Rear-Admiral Richard Tru- 
ly, a veteran of two space 
shuttle missions who heads 
the Naval Space Command, is 
expected to be named to 
succeed Mr Moore as Nasa 
associate administrator in 
charge of the shuttle pro- 
gramme. Five days before the 
January 28 explosion, Nasa 
announced that Mr Moore 
would become director of the 
Johnson Space Centre in 
Houston. 


From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

A strategy to save the 
French language from the 
ever-growing onslaught of En- 
glish has been adopted ai the 
first Francophone summit. 

Delegates from the 39 
French-speaking countries 
agreed to set up an interna- 
tional agency for the world- 
wide broadcasting of French- 
language television 
programmes with an initial 
three-year budget of 16 mil 
lion francs (£1.5 million). 


France decided to earmark 
one of its four telecommunica- 
tions satellite channels, due to 
be launched this year, for the 
relay of only French-spoken 
programmes. It also agreed to 
pay 29 million francs to 
double tbe hours of French- 
spoken programmes on its 
cable television network. 
TVS, which is already relaved 
to most European countries 
and will soon be extended to 
Africa and North America. 


particularly worried by the 
increasing dominance of En- 
glish, a group is to be set up to 
list existing French-language 
data banks in order to co- 
ordinate and extend their 
uses. 

Delegates to the summit 
also agreed to launch a paper- 
back book series devoted to 
French authors; promote the 
publication of French school 
books: and, organize a Franco- 
phone book fair to be held 
every two years in Paris. 

Concerning foreign affairs.' 


the summit adopted a careful- 
ly-worded resolution con- 
demning “without 

reservation" the system ot 
apartheid in South Africa but 
n avoided any mention of 
sanctions. Several African del- 
egates made clear their dis- 
pleasure at so mild a 
resolution. 

A second Francophone 
summit will be held in Quebec 
in 1988 and a committee has 
been formed to make prepara- 
tions and work out guidelines 
for the new Francophone 
Club.

Farm workers jailed 
for demanding jobs 

From Richard WIgg. Madrid 


A court in Seville yesterday 
jailed seven farm labourers for 
creating a public disorder by 
staging a sit-in at a town hall 
to protest against a lack of jobs 
on the land. 

The seven were each jailed 
for six moalhs for the 1 983 sit- 
in in the Andaluria region. An' 
eighth man was sentenced to 
28 months' jail for his part in a 
previous sit-in elsewhere. 

The sentencing court was 
the same one that, a fortnight 
ago. ruled in favour of local 
landowners and against tbe 
introduction of the 
Andaiucian regional 
government’s land reform 
programme passed last Octo- 
ber. 


A spokesman for the 
workers' trade union — whose i 
genera] secretary, Senor Diego 
Canamero, was one of the 
eight jailed - said the sen- 
tences made it difficult for the | 
labourers to respect the law 
“which condemns them for 
demanding work while at the 
same time it paralyses even 
the smallest attempt to change 
Andahiria’s land structures 
responsible for their 
situation". 

The Andaiucian govern- 
ment will fight the court's 
decision against the legality of 
its agricultural reform pro- 
gramme as will the union 
against tbe jail terms.

Tass accused 
by dissident 
Jewish pianist 

Moscow (Reuter) — The 
Soviet pianist Vladimir 
Feltsman yesterday accused 
the official news agency Tass 
of distorting an incident in 
which a piano at the United 
Slates ambassador's residence 
was damaged. 

Piano strings were found to 
have been tampered with only 
hours before Mr Feltsman, a 
Jew denied permission to 
emigrate, was due to give a 
concert. The US Embasssy 
blamed “unknown vandals". 

Tass said the incident had 
been turned into an anti- 
Soviet spectade.In an open 
letter to Tass made available 
to Western reporters, Mr 
Feltsman denied the agency's 
accusations that he was hys- 
terical and attention-seeking. 
“All I said was that I regarded 
the act as absolutely 
unacceptable.” 


91 scientists 
trapped 
in polar ice 

Hobart, Australia (AP) — In 
a race against tune, an 
icebreaking ship was being 
prepared yesterday to rescue 
91 Australian scientists and 
researchers stranded in the 
Antarctic. 

Fears that the group was 
trapped in polar ice were 
mounting after an Australian 
research ship, the Icdrird, 
reported engine' trouble and 
was forced to turn back, said 
Mr Jim Bieasel, director of the 
Science Department’s Antarc- 
tic division. 

'Access wifi depend on 
exactly how soon the sea ice 
starts to advance,” he said. "If 
the wind blows the ice into a 
solid pressured mass, access 
will be difficult,” 

Ice .. conditions were tbe 
worst in memory. 


Friendly,

And thats |ust the 
diesel pump. 


At BP we appreciate the growing trend 
towards diesel being used in ordinary family 
cars. So in many of our service stations you'!, 
find modern self-service diesel pumps along- 
side the petrol pumps. 

Now you might think that this would create 
problems such as people accidentally putting 
diesel into, cars designed to take petrol. That's 
why we've introduced the 'talking' diesel pump. 

Quite simply, when you lift the nozzle the 
pump speaks out a warning, very politely we 
might add, advising you that it is a diesel pump 
and nof a petrol pump.. It's just one in a long 
line of forecourt innovations from BP. But in the 
case of this latest service station improvement, 
we'll let our diesel pumps do the talking. 

P Britain at its best.

scope. The Russians have already 
conducted hundreds of such experi- 
ments using the old Salmi laborato- 
ries. 

The mosi frequent visitor to future 
Mir stations, however, is likely to be 
the secret military spy module, which 
the Russians'hpve been reluctant to 
discuss. This will operate more effec- 
tively from the low orbit usual !y 
empioyed by the Russians than 
similar cameras, telescopes and sen- 
sors carried at greater heights by 
.American space shuttles. 

Defence work is the mainstay of the 
Soviet space programme. Three of the 


seven Sdhia space laboratories of 
recent yeans were exclusively military 
while the others undoubtedly carried 
out spy missions. 

Crews will travel to and from the 
new stations in the three-man Soyuz-7 
capsules, using the two small docking 
pons. With an expected standard crew 
of 12. this means that Mir will be the 
first permanently manned space sta- 
tion. Within two or three years, as 
MIR facilities expand, the Russians 
will commission their own mini- 
shuttle to carry up to half a dozen 
cosmonauts and technicians along 
with important equipment. 


Eventually this shuttle will take oft 
and land at any major military' 
airport, allowing great flexibility in 
wartime. And the problem of sup- 
plies has been overcome. Most of 
them - food and fuel, for example - 
will be carried to .V/rusing the tested 
unmanned “Progress" supply ves- 
sels. These have operated with the 
Sa/yut stations for many years now. 

The unique flexibility of the Mil 
station is likely to be exploited i n more 
than jusl Earth orbit The Russians 
have always made it clear that they 
intend to send cosmonauts to both the 
Moon and Mars. A Mir station built 


up in lunar orbit could act as a 
permanent forward base for routine 
exploration of the Moon using two- 
man landing vehicles. Such a vehicle 
was being developed for the aban- 
doned Moon landing programme in 
the late 1960s, and h would be 
suiprising if this design is not now- 
being re-examined and improved. 

The Mir vehicle could also provide 
the heart ofa pair of two or three-man 
spaceships capable of making the two- 
and-a-hal f-year journey to Mara, going 
into orbit around the planet and 
putting two men on the surface. Mars 
has. been discussed by Russian engi- 
neers and cosmonauts for more than 
10 years, and at least half a dozen 
' leading Soviet experts have said they 
expea to see their cosmonauts there 
before the year 2.000. 

To get there, the Russians must 
make several developments. Fust, a 
new rocket launcher - even more 
powerful than the American Saturn 
moon rocket — will be needed to put 
the many parts of a Mars complex into 
orbit The Russians are known to have 
been developing such a booster for at 
least 20 years. Attempts to test early 
prototypes in the late 1960s led to 
disastrous explosions, but a new- 
model is thought to be in a late stage of 
development with test flights soon. 

Second the Russians will need a 
spa* tug to assemble a Mara vehicle 
in Earth orbit Such a vehicle has 
already been orbited and tested by the 
Russians. 

Finally, they are now believed to be 
developing a massive atomic rocket 
motor which would prove invaluable 
on a Mars trip. Fvingal modest power 
for long periods, such a motor would 
dramatically cut the weigfttof a Mare 
craft, once chemical rockets pushed the 
Mare vehicles away from Earth orbit 
Atomic motors are twice as efficient as 
even the liquid hydrogen and liquid 
oxygen motors of Nasa's space shuttle. 
The .Americans were developing 
atomic motors themselves 20 years 
ago, but the project was abandoned 
(^■nmNawspapvn Lad, 1988 


Conservationists will soon 
have a powerful electronic 
ally In their fight to defend 
the countryside. Within * few 
years they will be able to 
summon at the tonch of a 
computer key a comprehen- 
sive inventory of the United 
Kingdom's best wild places 
and their natural treasures. 

The Royal Society for Na- 
ture Conservation expea this 
data bank, now being assem- 
bled by the its county 
branches, to be consulted 
routinely by planning au- 
thorities and public bodies 
when any likely corner of the 
land is about to be smothered 
in concrete. No longer will 
developers be able to plead 
innocence of the rare Bowers, 
animals or birds on a site 
which they are about to 
flatten. 

**It would be an unwise 
decision maker, charged with 
any responsibility for nature 
conservation, who failed to 
consult organizations with 
such information at their 
finger tips**, says Dr 
Franklyn Perring. the 
RSNC* general secretary. 

The list could end the need 
for dramatic stop- the- bull- 
dozer interventions by envi- 
ronmentalists. Forewarned by 
the data bank at planning 
application stage, developers 
would court public displea- 
sure if they failed to accom- 
modate a rare species in their 
plans. 

The computerized record 
could also end some of the 
breathless, and in conserva- 
tion terms doubtful, habitat 
rescue attempts. In 1984, for 
example, the Suffolk Trust 
rolled up 5.000sq yds of turf 
at Warren Heath. Ipswich, to 
save a colony of the rare silver 
studded- blue butterfly from a 
hypermarket site. The trust 
did not bear of the scheme in 
time to persuade the develop- 
ers to change their plans. 


The list will be 
unique in scope 


So for 23 of the 46 country 
nature trusts which make up 
the RSNC the only genuinely 
national organization inter- 
ested in all aspects of nature 
conservation, are equipped 
with the £5,000 Comart com- 
puters. The first task of the 
trusts is to record the 1,600 
reserves which they own or 
manage; as small as Deep 
Mill Pond, near Great 
Missenden id Buckingham- 
shire, and as big as Ben mo re 
Coigsch. 5.948 hectares of 
heather moorland in the Scot- 
tish Highlands. 

The trusts will also record 
the 800 reserves owned by the 
Nature Conservancy Council, 
the Royal Society for the 
Protection of Birds, the Wood- 
land Trust, National Trust 


and other local bodies, ajd 
5.000 sites of special scientific 
interest {SSSUL Equally 
the list will include sub sites - 
smaller areas interesting for 
wildlife but so far unprotected 
- and a farther category, 
protected roadside 

(PR's). M1 . . 

The counties will regularly 
post their floppy disks to a 
central point where the 
RSNCs master list will be 
updated. Within a few years 
the list will be complete and 
unique in Ks scope- While 
much of this site data already 
exists in written form, conser- 
vation groups do no* have the 
manpower to use it effectively. 
Even the partiy-computerized 
records of the RovernmemV 
own Nature Conservancy 
Coonril are confined to the 
SSSIs and 200 national nature 
reserves. . 

The software for (be nation- 
al ate recording scheme was 
written by Bernard Chandler, 
head of environmental studies 
at Hatfield Polytechnic, ami 
his srudeots. So for the 
scheme, including computer?, 
has cost about £ 100 , 000 . fund- 
ed with grants from BP and 
th e NCC 

Trusts are facing a 
daunting challenge 

The software enables trusts 
to record the essential details 
of each site: its status and 
ownership, area, its Impor- 
tance — for instance as a 
habitat for bats, reptiles or 

mammals — and its key indica- 
tor specks, sscb as horseshoe 
vetch on chalk downfonds. and 
greater spearwort on lowland 
wetland. 

Chandler’s te»m is modify- 
ing the software to allow the 
RSNC to monitor habitat 
changes more swiftly and m 
far greater detail. It will also 
enable the trusts to make 
comparative lists of such dif- 
ferent habitat types as ancient 
woodland and unimproved 
grassland. 

The existing software can- 
not take in every plant species 
in a site, but some mists are 
faring even this daunting chal- 
lenge. One of the biggest 
trusts, the Berkshire, Buck- 
inghamshire and Oxfordshire 
Naturalists Trust fBBONT). 
has nsed 20 MSC-funded 
botanists on a four-year survey 
of l30frpfom species in 8.000 
sites in the three comities, 
some as small as un plan ted 
corners of fields. 

The RSNCs th Franklyn 
Perring said (hat as well as 
warning developers of what 
they might destroy, trusts 
would also be able to tell 
fondowneis about the contents 
of sites suitable to be made 
into reserves 

“As the organization most 
concerned with small sites, it 
foils to us to have the most 
complete information of sites 
of any importance. It is impor- 
tant that people who own or 
influence the use of land 
should be aware of the nature 
it contains."

Television bosses 

drew a blank over 

coverage of the 

Caribbean tour, 

John Young writes 

Tfic picture in The Times 
yesierdaj of blood pouring 
from the face of Mike Gutting, 
the England batsman, after his . 
nose had been broken by a 
short ball from Malcolm Mar- 
shall. was not a preuy sight. It 
may have made many people 
wonder why they had not seen 
ihe incident on television, or 
indeed why no pictures of the 
England tour of the Caribbean 
have been on our screens at 
all. 

The answer is. as all too 
often in sport nowadays, a 
dispute about money. The 
West Indian Cricket Board of 
Control is demanding more 
for the television rights than 
either the BBC or the indepen- 
dent companies are prepared 
to pay. More than that, the 
board is even asking £500 a 
day for news coverage of each 
of” the five five-day Test 
matches and the four one-day 
internal ionals. 

Both the BBC and ITV 
object strongly to the principle 
of payment for access to news 
which they say should, in the 
interests of freedom of the 
media, be available to all. On 
T uesday they went so far as to 
issue a joint statement in 
winch they described the 
board’s demand as without 
precedent and unacceptable. 

it also said: “Lengthy dis- 
cussions have taken place with 
the WICBC and their repre- 
sentative. Mr Mike Watt 
during which both television 
news organizations have ex- 
plained their position: namely 
ihai news access to Test 
matches has never been the 



Bad break: the picture of Mike Gatting viewers never saw 


subject of payment in this 
country or elsewhere. and that 
should television companies, 
be required to pay for ihcir 
news coverage, their position 
as members of the press corps, 
who do not pay for coverage, 
becomes invidious". 

A point of principle con- 
cerning news coverage may be 
understandable; the absence 
of an arrangement for edited 
highlights or ball-by-ball cov- 
erage is another matter. Nego- 
tiations have, in fact, been 
taking place for several 
months, and 3fier the BBC 
had turned down the asking 
price of £500,000. which it 
considered exorbitant, an ap- 
proach was made to London 
Weekend Television to see if 
they would be interested in 
buying on behalf of the inde- 
pendent network. 

Once again the answer was 
no. but there was a suggestion 
that Channel 4 might be 
interested. This would ha>e 
been a new departure, since 
the BBC has traditionally 
virtually monopolized cricket 
coverage. Channel 4 has been 
showing increasing interest in 


sport, and its racing coverage 
in particular has attracted 
much favourable comment. 

But despite what has dearly 
been a long period of brink- 
manship. with the West Indies 
board evidently convinced up 
To the last minute that the 
British would come to heel, it 
now seems almost certain that 
there will be no compromise 
and no change of heart 

By comparison with the £1.3 
million which the BBC even- 
tually agreed to pay after a 
protracted dispute with the 
Football League for coverage 
of six live league matches, the 
Milk Cup semi-finals and 
final, and 1 4 recorded match- 
es. to many people the board's 
demand may not seem that 
steep. 

Comparisons are difficult to ■ 
make, since both the BBC and 
the independent companies 
refuse to provide details, 
claiming that the contracts 
they reach with the various 
governing bodies of different 
sports are private and confi- 
dential. The BBC refuses to 
say. for example, what it pays 
the Test and County Cricket 


Board for home coverage or 
what it has in the past paid for 
pictures from Australian or 
New Zealand television. 

In many parts of the Carib- 
bean the technical standard of 
television still leaves a lot to 
be desired and it is unlikely 
that either the BBC or ITV 
would find it satisfactory to 
take pictures from a local 
station. This would mean that 
-in addition .ftj "meeting the 
Boaixl's" demand, they ' would 
have ip^sencftiieir own camera' 
team. Moreover, the smaller 
islands, such as .Antigua: 
where the Fifth Test is to be 
played, do not have satellite 
facilities. 

Beyond money and techni- 
cal problems, the time factor is 
such that the hours of play 
coincide with peak evening 
viewing hours and while 
cricket enthusiasts might re- 
gard the prospect of arriving 
home to watch five or six 
hours of uninterrupted cricket 
on a winter’s evening as 
'unalloyed bliss, the reality fs 
that none of the television 
companies, not even Channel 
4, is going to rearrange its 
schedules and drop pro- 
grammes with high audience 
ratings in order to accommo- 
date something which, painful 
as it is to admit, would not 
attract mass viewership. 

An LWT executive was 
quite open about it. “Quite 
frankly we have just not got 
the slots," he said. “Where on 
eanh would we put it?" 

The point about not dis- 
rupting early evening sched- 
ules may be a valid one. But 
there is surely a vast audience 
that would stay up to watch, 
say, half an hour of edited 
highlights late at nighL when 
highlights of domestic Test 
matches are normally shown 
dunng the summer for the 
benefit of those who have 
been unable to watch dunng 
the day.

THE TIMKS FRIDAY FFRRI tar y 21 1986 

FRIDAY PAGE 


Inside I knew this day would come 
; . .it was strange, because in all my 
iniagmings I had never taken it to 
the very end. On the one hand, it 
was exciting, on the other it felt as 
n we had last met a few hours ago’ 

A vital Shcharansky 


A vital Shcharans ky 
is picking np the 
threads of her 
1 1-year marriage 
which began a gain 
last week when her 
husband Anatoly 
crossed to the West. 
Bel Mooney met the 
couple at home in 
their Jerusalem flat 


Avital Shc harans ky had had 
enough. A week of television 
crews invading the small flat-cum- 
office in the new suburb, people 
approaching her in the street with 
congratulations, and now the ago- 
ny of her wisdom tooth. “For 
years I have had no trouble with 
my teeth and now this comes the 
very week Anatoly is free. It must 
be, what is the word — 
psychological** 

Anatoly was taking the inter- 
views in his stride, hill of energy, 
jokes and such diversions as a 
demonstration of the morse ig 
be used in prison. Avital kept out 
of it, refusing to talk to people, 
carefully “minded” by a quiet 
man wearing the Orthodox skull- 
cap who kept at bay those who 
would pester her for interviews. In 
the i 1 years of campaigning for 
her husband Avital has been a 
public figure: “Now I want the 
world to forget about me. I need 
just to live the life of a normal 
woman at last”. 

She is clear what that means, 
asking how man ^children J have 
"“Two? That's good.” Tor that is 
what she wants now, at 35. before 
it is too late. “We now have to 
work out what is between Anatoly 
and myself. And we have great 
plans; most of all I hope — I hope 
— for children.” 

Much prettier than photographs 
suggest, despite the tight headscarf 
of the Orthodox married woman, 
Avital is also much gentler than I 
expected — preceded as she is by a 
tough reputation for not allowing 
personal 'questions and making 1 
political speeches instead. In foot, 
far from being irritated by con- i 


r slant speculation that she, infiu- 
_ raced by her friends in Gush 
" Emunim (the right wing natiional- 
_ ist-spiritua] movement that seeks 
to extend Jewish settlements), 
__ may have problems with her more 
secular husband, Avital laughs 
merrily. “We just make fun orall 
“ lhaL This morning Anatoly said to 
me: The whole world is con- 

- cerned with bow we are making 
out together, except us’. We are 

- not at all concerned. We laugh, full 
of good feelings towards one 

_ another. We shall work it all out.” 

1 sensed she did not want to be 
. drawn, but Anatoly himself was 
more forthcoming: “From my 
point of view there is no real 
’ difference between us. We have 
the same inspiration, but maybe 
there are different forms in which 
we express our views. Maybe 
when I have studied more we will 
become nearer in the form in 
which we express our religious 
feelings, but maybe not. What 
matters is the feelings themselves, 
not the form." 

For a second his habitual good 
humour shifts into exasperation, 
as he waves aside criticism that, 
for example, be has not been 
wearing the skullcap Avital placed 
on his head on his arrival “Today 
I read something in the Press 
which said I was in the hands of 
the religious Mafia. I ldl you those 
friends of Avital who have sacri- 
ficed years, helping-her, travelling 
with her, organizing this flat, are 
people of tact and delicacy. They 
do not try to push me into 
becoming more Orthodox, listen, 

I read a lie in the newspaper that 
on Saturday I was taken to a 
synagogue almost by force, when 
all day Avital and I were at home. 

It's a free Press, the freedom to 
write that they like.” In his long 
protest there is an underc ur rent of * 
real tension, and the Yam ulka is 1 
still absent from his heal 1 

Avital says that three things < 
kepi her going during foe 1 1-year £ 
separation: foe friends mentioned s 
by her husband, being in Israel I 
(“representing him here in the c 
country of which we both 


imaginings I had never taken it to 
the very end. On the one hand it 
was exciting, but on the other 
hand it frit as if we had but met 
only a few hours ago.” 

He fell the same, describing — 
most movingly — how through an 
foe red tape, talking to ambassa- 
dors and putting his foot for the 
first time on free soil be thought 
only of Avital. When at last the 
hellos changed to shaloms there 
was suddenly a closed door ahead 
of him: “And I went thro ugh , and 
there was Avital sitting there 
alone. I can't remember how 
many people I crossed to reach 
her, but there she was, and I 
turned back to 1972, and in fact 
she looked exactly the same. 
Exactly." His voice grew husky: “ I 
had imagined that moment many 
times when sleeping, but always 
just at the moment when I was 
approaching Avital I was awak- 
ened. But now you see, we are 
together one week, and still I am 
not awakened.” 

No physical change perhaps, but 
had they noticed other changes? 
Curious about this, Avital is 
seeking them: “I have studied him

awe at Ids 
wife’s strength

dreamed”), and above all the 
thought of Anatoly in prison: “I 
could think of how well be was 
doing, how strong he was, and that 
gave me the push to continue”. 
Even though there were times 
when she was dose to despair, 
“inside I knew this day would 
come”. And then it was foe 
meeting at Frankfurt “It was 
strange, because in all my 


to see if he is foe same, and so far I 
think so. But we are not much 
alone now. I can imagine that as 
we develop our life together there 
will be moments when I think be 
is different I am interested to 
discover what he is deep inside 
him. 1 fed that there are now even 
more good things inside him that I 
can discover. After all we have 
gone through, we shall be able to 
sort out any problems we have in 
knowing ourselves. It will all work 
out foe right way.” 

It is dear that Anatoly 
Shcharansky is impressed by this 
woman be has met whom last he 
knew as a shy art student who had 
only recently discovered that she 
was a Jew, and was coming to 
terms with that. Now, in Israel 
she is an important figure in her 
own righL “When I find out more 
and more details about her cam- 
paign I am really surprised by this 
tremendous energy. And some 


political skill which I didn't 
suppose to find from her." 
Though be attempts light-hearted 
masculine jokiness of foe “I want 
my wife at home” variety, he 
shows sincere awe at his wife's 
strength of character “Although I 
can know only bits of what she has 
done for me, I can say that on the 
very first day of our acquaintance 
I knew that it would be so for foe 
rest of our life. So I was never in 
doubt that she would do her best 
for me. But to find her so efficient 

and so practical yes, that is a 

surprise.” 

She brushes all praise aside, 
saying that she did only what any 
wife would have done for her 
husband. “To be a fighter and a 
public person, that is not me, and I 
didn't like it each time I had to 
force myself to talk to a big 
audience, to sit with Mrs Thatch- 
er. and so on. Now I have all this 
experience but I do not want it, I 
just want to be private. I will help 
Anatoly to do foe work be wants to 
do to help the Jews who are still in 
Russia, of course." Even though 
such campaigning may talw him 
away from her a great deal? She 
shrugs serenely: “I very much 
want my husband to be with me, 
but it is a great cause, an 
important cause for us. and so I 
will try to manage." 

You would expect Mrs 
Shcharansky to feel bitter, even in 
passing, at the thought of all the 
years that have been stolen from 
them, yet she rebukes the sugges- 
tion. “1 do not think tike that, not 
at alL I think that in foe future 
those days will come when we 
think that those years behind were 
very important for us. Each 
human being cannot go through 
life without trying to discover 
God’s purpose, and I believe that 
what happened to us did not 
happen by accident It isa proof to 
me that God exists. It is a miracle

Portrait of happiness; Avital and Anatoly Shcharansky reunited after II years of separation 



me that God exists. It is a miracle 
that we have this after all our work 
and struggle and filth that Anatoly 
would one day be free. I am very 
grateful to God for foe miracle." 

Anatoly echoes her acceptance. 
“No, foe time was not stolen from 
us. The time is stolen if you do not 
know what you lived those years 
for. The time is stolen when you 
find out nothing about the world 
and about yourself The time is 
lost when it was of no help to those 
around you. But during that time I 
could lest myself and find out 
about myself and also Avital and 
l we lived a real life - real, with 
real deep feelings. And I dxscov- 


I ered that the most important 

* feeling is — let's not use big words 

5 — love itself. That's what all this 

means to me. So those years were 

* not lost. To start thinking: what if 
‘ Avital and I had lived those years 

' together in Israel? . . . It’s impos- 
1 srble. Such things were not meant 
1 to take place. Believe me when 1 
say it simply, those long years 
apart were worth living, truly. It 
was a hard period of life, but also 
responsible and . . . impressive 
for us both." 

Avital is amazed by all foe 
speculation about how they would 
cope with their reunion, simply 
because she never felt they were 
out of touch. Both are deligh ted by 
foe suggestion that there is such a 
thing as spiritual contact. A vital's 
fece tights up. “Yes. we were, very 
much so. In the heart, you 
understand? So dose all the time. 

It is nice now when Anatoly tells 
me that at a certain moment he 
was thinking something, and I say, 
yes, at that moment I was thi nking 
it too. Things that are unique. So 
we always connected with each 
other in that way.” Asked the 
same question, quite separately, 
Anatoly responded in foe same 
win. “Earlier this year I was on 
hunger strike and in foe punish- 
ment ceU and suddenly they 
brought me a postcard from 
Avital, which was a great shock to 
me because it was so unexpected. 
They often did not let her letters 
through though she wrote to me 
twice a week. On the card was a 
picture of the Wailing Wall in 
Jerusalem, and old men by it with 
foe rams' boros they use to make 
signals at certain festivals. And she 
had written: Through which horn 
shall I blow for you to hear me? 1 
And truly, I did hear her, there in 
the punishment cell. It was such a . 


deep striking moment for me." 

AJone. they talk in Hebrew, 
though he is rusty, necessitating 
Russian too, although that lan- 
guage will be abandoned in time. 
She laughed: “Sometimes, during 
this crowded week, he has even 
spoken to me in English." Avital 
never thinks of Russia: that part of 
her is buried, gone. She tells the 
story of the famous writer who. 
asked where he was born, replied 

Throughout the 
separation, they

that he had been bom in Israel 
2,000 years ago. but found himself 
in Russia, in the Diaspora, by 
accident. That is how I feel. This is 
my home, we now have to 
assimilate Anatoly." 

I had a sense that her conviction 
stems from the fact that her 
parents had hidden her Jewishness 
from her brother and herself, and 
when (in very late teens) she knew 
foe troth, “I became at peace with 
myself, and thought of Israel". For 
Anatoly it is a little different: he 
did not experience such a late 
revelation, and seems far more an 
inhabitant of foe larger world than 
his wife. He says he knows that 
there is much to understand in 
Israeli politics, and that be has 
much to learn about Judaism, and 
is also aware of foe dangers of 
becoming a propaganda symbol 
for the Russians, and to a lesser 
extent, foe Americans."! will learn

Vivien Tomlinson 

I have forgotten the school 
report which tells me which 
teachers to see. It has already 
caused anguish at home with 
such comments as: “frivolous, 
inattentive and lazy”, “hope- 
lessly disorganized 
approach” and “must learn to 
control his sense of ham our”. 

It would be an even more 
incriminating document to 
bring along since tbe 
headmaster’s final copper- 
plated summary has been 
whited over with correction 
fluid and a nearly passable 
forger; screams: “This is a 
brilliant pupil". 

After receiving universally 
dismal news from maths, 
physics, chemistry, geogra- 


phy and Latin, I make for tbe 
library. Someone has told me 
that this is tbe English queue. 
We move slowly towards our 
target - an Irish deric 
dressed in Mack, glum-faced 
and thin-lipped from aeons of 
pumping Eng. Lit. into un- 
willing heads. Thirty-five 
minutes pass before he raises 
one eyebrow and I take my 
place across his desk. 

He tells me all the expected 
things: that my son is a very 
bad influence on his class, hay 
no aptitude for work and is on 
course to fail spectacularly. 

“I have another thing to tell 
yon", be whispers darkly in a 
thick. Cork brogue. “I believe 
be might be watching unsuit- 
able videos in his spare time.” 
So that's what he's been 
doing when he says he's 
nipping down to the corner 
cafe, I reflect. 

Just then a remarkable 
thing happens. He refers to 


and study, and then I will see 
influence 1 can have.” h 
As for Russia, he has no ds 
to deny that pari of his- Jify 
Avital seems to do: “The gra -

Among ihc government's many prob- 
lems the Sunday Trading Bill, which 
proposes to remove all restrictions on 
shop hours, may appear relatively 
minor. It could lead, however, to a 
backbenchers’ revolt fiercer than those 
over Austin Rover and payments to the 
"illegal" EEC budget Possibly 100 Tory 
MPs will abstain or vote 3gainsi it 
Unlike the recent “one night" revolts, it 
could continue throughout the bill’s 
long deliberations until July, when royal 
assent is likely. 

1 cannot think of anything more 
damaging to party morale than to be 
forced to table a "guillotine" motion to 
curb the debates in committee on an 
issue where MPs are well aware of a* 
deep-rooted and substantial unhappi- 
ness in constituencies. 

It is all too easy to interpret a flood of 
letters from constituents and packed 
meetings in local churches as an upsurge 
of popular feeling when similar cam- 
paigns in the past — notably opposition 
to the proposed abolition of resale price 
maintenance, now seen to be a good 
thing — faded away after the reform was 
put into effect. But the Sunday trading 
proposals seem to have sparked off a 
genuine and fundamental wave of 
concern, particularly unwelcome when 
the government is going through a bad 
patch. 

It is not just the so-called “religious” 
minority who are concerned about what 
they see as a fundamental change to our 
style of life; it is also clear th3t small 


by Teddy Taylor 

shopkeepers believe that legalized Sun- 
day trading will force them, against their 
will, to open on Sundays to maintain 
their market share. 

Is there an escape route for the 
Government from this damaging 
confrontation? The most obvious would 
be lo drop the bill, but it would be diffi- 
cult, if not impossible, for any govern- 
ment to abandon a major piece of its 
legislative programme without losing 
credibility. 

Allow a free vote? That is the most 
commonly argued alternative, but in 
that event many supporters of Sunday 
trading, heeding objections by constit- 
uents, would find other pressing engage- 
ments on the night and the opponents 
would flood the lobby to wreck the bill. 

Limit the size of shops permitted to 
open or the number of employees 
permitted to serve the public? Any such 
plan would be a nightmare for trading 
standards officers and would produce 
more anomalies than at present. 

My own view, as an opponent of the 
wholesale removal of shop hour restric- 
tions. is that every district council 
should be given the right to determine 
its own shopping hours. The Auld 
Report, which was the basis of the new 
legislation, did say that “shopping 
seems to us to be one area where a 
reasonable case might be made for local 
discretion." In fairness, having made 
that point, the report argued that the 


wholesale removal of restrictions would 
be preferable to local variations, but the 
inquiry team certainly did not throw out 
“local option”, as some have suggested. 

The local option would ensure that 
local people, whether shopkeepers or 
shoppers, could have the final say in the 
pattern of shopping. Councils could 
hold referenda for guidance.This would 
also acknowledge that opinions vary 
throughout the country. I am sure that 
some London boroughs would opt for 
unrestricted trading — and equally that 
in towns like Cambridge, where Sunday 
is a day of peace and quiet, restrictions 
would continue. 

It will be argued that such variations 
will prodcuce administrative problems 
and market distortions. Although open 
shops in one area might deprive 
shopkeepers in neighbouring “closed" 
areas of business, it would be a matter 
for the traders concerned to persuade 
their local councils and residents to 
change the policy. Likewise, the “ 9 pen" 
towns might argue for the restoration of 
the Sunday peace of their neighbours. 

No solution is ideal. But it seems to 
me that the quiet of our Sundays is a 
treasure which local communities 
should have the right to preserve if they 
wish. Apart from this issue of principle, 
the local option plan would help the 
government over a political minefield of 
its own creation by restoring to local 
councils a little of the power which has 
been removed from them.

Moscow 

Next week's 27ih Congress of ihe 
Soviet Communist Parly is con- 
fidently expected to he one of the 
most significant in its chequered 
history.'The five-yearly gathering, 
the high point of the Soviet 
political calendar, will give 
Mikhail Gorbachov an opportu- 
nity to consolidate his power. 

Attended by some 5,000 dele- 
gates from the 15 Soviet republics, 
the gathering is dedicated lo 
transforming the life of a nation 
where a combination of corrup- 
tion. inefficiency, technological 
backwardness and bureaucratic 
indolence have threatened to 
make a mockery of Soviet claims 
to offer a superior alternative to 
capitalism. 

Coming less than three weeks 
before the first anniversary of 
Gorbachov's takeover in the 
Kremlin. the Congress will also 
provide both East and West with 
an opportunity to assess his 
achievements at a moment re- 
garded as a watershed in the 
history of the communist st3te. 
Although there is no denying the 
new mood inside the’ Soviet 
Union, where unprecedented 
openness is being encouraged, 
daunting problems still face 
Gorbachov if he is even, lo 
approach achieving his goals. 

The most urgent problem ts the 
flagging economy. There are seri- 
ous doubts that improvements of 
the order sought by the Kremlin 
can be reached without structural 
alterations to the centralized sys- 
tem. something Gorbachov has so 
far shown little inclination to 
explore. "At present. Lhere is no 
sign of him doing a Hungary or a 
China." one expert explained. "He 
is still determined to try and make 
the existing model work as it is.” 
Among the key questions to be 
answered is how the state will cope 
with the problem of redundancy, 
how pressing Soviet consumer 
needs will be met and how the 
technology gap with the West can 
be bridged. 

His most ambitious reform to 
date has been the brave ainempi 
to cut back on alcoholism. This is 
rapidly reaching epidemic propor- 
tions. threatening not only indus- 
trial output 3nd Tamil v life but also 
the overall health of the nation. 
Because of the long tradition of 
heavy drinking in Russia, re- 
inforced by the bitter climate and 
less tangible national character, 
there has been scepticism among 
even Gorbachov's strongest 
supporters about his chances of 
success. There was also the risk 
that the unpopularity of the move 
- which earned him the nickname 
“lemonade Joe” — might provoke 
widespread resentment. 

.As the 2.000 journalists accred- 
ited to cover the Congress will 
quickly discover if they attempt to 
order alcohol in the special press 
centre, the anti-drink drive is 
continuing, although its results 
have been patchy. “Facts show

that in many regions, the anti- 
alcohol campaign is weak.” the 
government daily Izvestia re- 
ported last month. 

Much more effective have been 
Gorbachov's unremitting efforts 
to weed out the nepotism, corrup- 
tion and other vices which had 
flourished under his elderly and 
infirm predecessors. At the last 
count, he had succeeded in remov- 
ing 46 out of a total ofl 57 regional 
party bosses, compared with only 
15 who lost their posts during 
Konstantin Chernenko’s leader- 
ship. In addition, almost half the 
Sfrodd ministries and major slate 
committees are now under new 
leadership.

Gorbachov quickly engineered the

resources badly needed elsewhere 

Grigory Romanov ; encouraged 
the retirement of the octogenarian 
prime minister, Nikolai Tik- 
honov. and ensured the appoint- 
ment of three loyal supporters to 
the politburo. In the 14 non- 
Russian republ cs, dozens of se- 
nior figures have been 
unceremoniously sacked, and the 
party chief has been changed in 
seven. 

Close attention will be paid to 
the composition of the politburo 
to be elected at the finale of the 
Congress, and which is expected to 
reflect Gorbachov's tightening 
grip. The speed with which Gor- 
bachov can continue to streamline 
the creaking administration will 
depend in part on bow far the 
party's internal rules are amended 
during the Congress. 


Kremlin-watchers are paying 
attention to two particular moves, 
widely publicized in the official 
press. One would make the 
1 8.000.000 party members subject 
directly to the Soviet judicial 
process, rather than - as is now 
the practice — having the charges 
judged first by a closed party 
meeting. The other, introduced 
under Khrushchev, and dropped 
by Brezhnev, would impose strict 
limits on the length of lime for 
which party officials could hold 
their positions. 

The extent to which these two 
sensitive issues have been aired 
recently has led some officials to 
believe that Gorbachov is prepar- 
ing to take on die entrenched and 
privileged middle ranks of the 
party, but many western observers 
aigue that the final version of the 
amended rules will avoid such 
radical measures. 

.Despite the sew spirit of open- 
ness and self-criticism which 
Gorbachov has encouraged in the 
Soviet media, serious doubts re- 
main about the extent to which he 
will be prepared at this stage to 
alienate the nomenklatura, the 
thousands of middle-ranking of- 
ficials on whom he must largely 
depend to carry through his 
proposed economic reforms. • 
Doubts also hang over his 
' foreign policy programme. During 
his hectic first 1 1 months. 
Gorbachov has chosen to devote 
more attention than expected to 
foreign affairs - dearly dem- 
onstrating the need to divert 
raueb-needed resources away 
from the giant defence establish- 
ment His growing impatience to 
secure an answer from the White 
House to his January 15 disarma- 
ment plan is believed to reflect a 
desire to reassure hawks in the 
Soviet military that the Kremlin 
has not been showing weakness. 

With spectacular trips to India 
and Italy planned for Later in the 
year, and a second summit with 
President Reagan - widely seen as 
threatening many more potential 
pitfalls for the Soviet leader than 
the first — Gorbachov will have , 
ample opportunity to demonstrate , 
his proven flair for international 
public relations. At home, how- 
ever, he must convince doublers 
that be will succeed in securing the 
concessions demanded on the key 
issue of “star wars”. 

With this in mind, senior 
diplomats have not been surprised 
by the harsh line he has adopted in 
the tit-for-tat expulsions of Brit- 
ish, French and Italian repre- 
sentatives from the Soviet capital. 
Few doubt that the 27th Party 
Congress will provide onlookers 
and participants alike with numer- 
ous reminders of the shrewd 
assessment made by the former 
veteran foreign minister, Andrei 
Gromyko , in March, 1985. 
“Mikhail Sergeyevich has a nice 
smile”, he tola the assembled 
members of the politburo, “but he 
also has iron teeth.” 


Greek choice: bases or bankruptcy 


Athens 

Economic troubles at home and a 
gnawing concern about the Greek- 
Turkish military balance are forc- 
ing Andreas Papandreou. Greece's 
socialist prime minister, to mm to 
the Americans tor help. Wash- 
ington's price is an irrevocable 
commitment, not just a whispered 
promise, that the American bases 
in Greece will remain well into the 
next decade. Papandreou. twice 
elected on a platform vowing to 
remove all foreign bases, now 
seems prepared to pay this price. 
Can he afford it politically? 

Already his domestic credibility 
has been eroded by the monetarist 
remedies he has applied to an 
economy crippled by runaway 
public deficits and total stagna- 
tion. Far from restoring business 
confidence, the austerity pro- 
gramme h3s alienated the left- 
wing trade unionists, who are now 
ganging up with the communists 
to fight the wage freeze. 

Municipal eleciions in October 
could prove a strenuous popular- 
ity lest for the Socialists. 
Papandreou would prefer to delay 
a pledge to the Americans until he 
is over that hurdle, but Wash- 
ington wants to know soon 
whether it should modernize the 
bases or prepare to transfer them 
elsewhere: Turkey, perhaps, or 
Italy. George Shulu. the Secretary 


of State, will visit Athens next 
month to demand an answer. 

For years Papandreou offset the 
political cost of his occasional U- 
tums with bouts of anti-Ameri- 
canism which kept his left happy 
and hopeful. Then the Americans 
realized that the cumulative effect 
of this regular dose of poison on 
the Greek psyche was even more 
pernicious than the consequences 
of Papandieou's non-con form ism. 
Now the Americans hold the 
strings thaL could spare Greece a 
bankruptcy, a national security 
hazard in the Aegean, or both. 

Having muted his anti-Ameri- 
canism. Papandreou tries to up- 
hold his image by subtler forms of 
double talk. One is to lavish praise 
on the Soviet Union for its 
untiring efforts for world peace, 
without uttering a single word of 
censure (or praise) for the US. 
Another is to reassure western 
visitors privately of Greece's full 
co-operation, for instance, in 
combating terrorism, especially 
the Libyan strain, then come out 
publicly and commend Greece's 
friendship with Colonel Gadaffi. 

It was fascinating to watch the 
downgrading of the recent visit [<> 
Athens by John Whitehead, a US 
deputy secretary of state. First 
Papandreou feigned reluctance to 
meet him. then ga^e simultaneous 
red carpet treatment to deputy 
foreign ministers from Moscow 


and Libya, with state television 
lingering on the prolonged and 
cordial handshake between Soviet 
and Greek ministers. 

Greece is now co-operating 
closely and eagerly with the West 
in all forms of counter-terrorism, 
but Papandreou will readily pro- 
claim that he fervently supports all 
national liberation struggles and 
his foreign minister will describe 
as a “poor hoy” the terrorist who 
survived the Rome airport massa- 
cre in which, among others, four 
Greeks died 

Whether these contradictions 
can still reassure the Greek left 
remains to be seen. But they 
certainly confuse Greece’s western 
allies. The LIS has therefore played 
it safe by sending to Athens 
messages of two distinct options: 

• Rozanne Ridgway, Assistant 
Secretary of State for European 
affairs, flew lo Alhens (signifi- 
cantly via art American base) to 
dangle before Papandreou the 
benefits of agreeing to an Ameri- 
can military' presence beyond 
f 9S8. when the current agreement 
expires. She discussed joint indus- 
trial investment, easier bank 
loans, preservation of the military 
equilibrium in the Aegean and, in 
that context, ending the delays in 
US warplane sales to Greece. 

® At the same lime. Richard 
Pcrle. the Assistant Defence Sec- 


retary, told a Greek interviewer 
that if Papandreou terminated the 
agreement, there was no guarantee 
that other bilateral agreements, 
especially those that served Greek 
interests, would be renewed once 
they lapsed. It was a clear warning 
that if the bases go. Greece should 
expect little support from Wash- 
ington. “This would bring about a 
fundamental . change in our 
relationship.” he said 

The US is clearly softening up 
the terrain for the three-day Shultz 
visit it begins on March 25, Greek 
Independence Day. The sym- 
bolism is not lost on Papandreou's 
left-wing critics, who point out 
that any concession to the Ameri- 
cans would make his slogans 
about national independence 
sound hollow. 

When the US-Greek bases 
agreement was signed in 1983. 
banners were strung across Greek 
avenues and highways proclaim- 
ing: “The bases are leaving. Our 
struggle is vindicated”. Western 
diplomats in Athens seem con- 
fident that if Papandreou even- 
tually gives in. his talent for 
persuasion will not fail him. “He 
will find,” one of them said, 
“some elegant way of convincing 
the people that this is one more 
step towards emancipating Greece 
from western tutelage.”

Libel lottery due 

for reform 


What do Cecil Parkinson, Bovril 
Lord Forte and Trevor Nunn have 
in common? AD were winners in 
the growth industry of 1985 — ■ 
High Court libel actions. Parkin- 
son and his secretary* Mi? Angela 
Mathew, obtained ait injunction, 
apologies and damages from Pri- 
vate Eye for innuendos about their 
relationship; Bovril won un- 
disclosed damages over an allega- 
tion in a book, The Food Scandal, 
that its paste contained sugar; 
Lord Forte won damages and 30 
apology for the suggestion that he 
had been rude to the former 
manager of the Grosvenor House 
Hotel; and Trevor Nunn won an 
apology -and substantial damages 
along with the actress Sharon Lee 
Hill for the suggestion that she had 
obtained leading roles in Cats and 
Blonde t because of her relation- 
ship with Nunn. 

Indeed, last year was remark- 
able for its expensive, glittering 
and sometimes faintly comical 
actions. The longest-, most expen- 
sive and most complicated was Dr 
Sidney Gee v Esther Rantzen and 
the BBC over a That's Life 
programme. On the 87th day of a 
hearing dogged by illness — at one 
time or another the judge was ilL a 
juryman was ill. the tuber had a 
fit, the BBC solicitor -arrived on 
crutches and one QC in a wheel 
chair — the BBC finally cracked 
and agreed to pay Dr Gee, a 
Harley Street specialist, £75.000 in 
damages and estimated costs of 
over £1 million — a record. 

If the Gee case was the most 
expensive, what became known as 
the “Big Bum” action was the 
most extraordinary. In an un- 
expectedly generous moment, a 
jury awarded the actress Charlotte 
Cornwell £10.000 damages be- 
cause it considered tbat Nina 
Myskow, m her “Wally of the 
Week.” column in the Sunday 
People , had unfairly accused her of 
“not being able to sing”, having 
“too big a bum” and lacking stage 
presence. 

If the BBC felt sbefl-seftocked, 
Fleet Street critics began to feel 
distinctly jittery post-CornweJL 
Moreover, the quaint habit of 
allowing libel juries to decide the 
level of damages — rather like 
inviting them, rather than the 
judge, to pass sentence in a 
criminal trial — was again called 
into question. 

Across the Atlantic, while Gen- 
eral Westmoreland was battling it 
out with CBS in a $120 million 
libel claim over his handling of the 
Vietnam war, the former Israeli 
defence minister, Arid Sharon, 
rolled into another New York 
court with a $50 million claim 
against Time magazine. 

Bui the idiosyncracies of Ameri- 
can libel laws were against him. 
While he was able to prove that 
what the magazine had said about 
him in relation to the massacre of 
PLO refugees in 1982 was untrue 
and defamatory, he foiled to win a 
single cent in damages. 

Had Sharon been able to bring 
bis claim in a British court there is 
little doubt that he would have 
been laughing all the way to the 
bank {he has since been successful 
in an Israeli court), but Ameri- 
cans, as in most things, are 


different from tire British. Instead 
of seeing the press and television 
as the purveyors of half-truths or 
downright lies, they look on their 
papers as the custodians ot free 
speech and the uncovered of 
iniquity, as ra the Watergate 
scandal. The net result is that the 
dice are heavily loaded in fevour 
of the press in libel actions 
involving matters of general pub- 
lic interest. 

Sharon, therefore, like other 
public figures in the US. had an 
uphill struggle from the outset 
Nor only had he to prove he was. 
innocent of the charges made, but 
also that Time bad knowingly or 
recklessly lied. 

In Britain, it is the newspaper or 
television company which must 
prove, in the absence of a “public 
interest” defence, that virtually 
everything it said was true, or fair 
comment. As a result, last year 
was distinctly uncomfortable for 
the press and the BBC particu- 
larly for investigative journalism. 
Bui' even plaintiffs suffer from the 
vagaries of the English jury system 
and the huge legal costs of fighting 
even a simple case. 

But the media are not the only 
defendants in libel actions. Nor- 
man Tebbit apologized to the 
chairman of the Prison Officers’ 
.Association for a gaffe in a 
Conservative Party political 
broadcast, while Nigel Lawson 
picked up an unprecedented writ, 
as Chancellor of the Exchequer, 
for extra-parliamentary remarks 
about accountants Arthur Young 
McClelland Moore over the John- 
son Matthey Bank affair. Two 
young Conservatives paid “un- 
disclosed” libel . damages to a 
member of the ruling body of 
CND for allegations in a leaflet 
that he was a communist. 

Another Conservative, Jona- 
than Aiikcn. MP for Thanet 
South, was more successful as a 
libel defendant in foe celebrated 
and somewhat comical Dallas 
case brought by Mrs Hazel Pinder- 
White. Early in the case Mrs 
Pindcr-White indicated that she 
would like Aitken to go down on 
his knees in the middle of Viking 
Bay at Broadstairs to apologize for 
comparing her with Sue Ellen, the 
character in foe TV soap opera. 

The jury seem to have regarded 
this as excessive in foe light of 
Ailken's previous expressions of 
regret and found for him. After- 
wards, writing in L’K Press Ga-

Now that Aitken and fellow 
Conservatives have experienced 
our libel laws at first hand surely 
someone will introduce legislation 
to give j u d ges , as foe experts, the 
right lo assess damages once the 
jury has decided that a libel has 
been committed and has indicated 
that damages should be substan- 
tial, moderate, nominal or con- 
temptuous. Judges already award 
damages in personal injury ac- 
tions, so why not for libel? It is foe 
only way to remove the roulette 
wheel from the libel courts.

There was no change i n foe state of 
the British economy this morning. 
It was still in a deep coma. 
Doctors who had attended it 
during foe night said it had shown 
no signs of life at any point. This 
came as no particular surprise to 
them, as it has not shown any 
signs of life for about 30 years. 

Medical experts are at a loss to 
explain bow an apparently healthy 
economy can remain totally with- 
out signs of life for 30 years, 
especially as closely related speci- 
mens in France and Germany are 
showing signs of good growth. It 
has been fed intravenously on 
North Sea oil and gas for the last 
10 years, but if and when this runs 
out, the patient may become very 
expensive to maintain. Mean- 
while, it is being inspected every 
day for signs of activity, but its 
condition is always described as 
“Like a very deep sleep, but much 
deeper than that”. 

“We have tried almost every 
known treatment there is,” said 
head surgeon N. H. S. Porter, 
“but none of them has worked. 
Socialism, computerization, un- 
onizaiion, free enterprise, total 
neglect — you name it. We’ve even 
tried a big kick up the backside. 
Not a dicky bird. Frankly, I'd 
think the economy was dead 
except for the way it soaks up foe 
old oil and gas.” 

They have tried playing the 
British economy's favourite rec- 
ord, Rule Britannia, repeatedly at 
its bedside. Mrs Thatcher has 
come around, usually lo scream: 
“If you don’t get up, HI sell you to 
the Americans!” Members of the 
Royal Family have called by to 
shout “Stop being dozy and get 
your finger out!” They have even 
brought in people like Gore Vidal 
to insult the British economy, but 
no observable reaction has yet 
taken place. 

Nor has anyone satisfactorily 
explained how this happened. 
Some say that the shock of the 
Suez failure in 1 956 caused a brain 
haemorrhage, while others think 
that Britain’s traditions took a 
stranglehold and somehow cut off 
the blood to the brain. 
N. H.S. Porter thinks Britain may 
have taken too literally the old 
expression, “Export or die”, and 


has simply decided to die. 

“Or maybe it's a new kind of 
anorexia nervosa,” he says. 
“Maybe the British economy is 
deliberately starving itself to death 
in order to reach such a state of 
emaciation that it can be mistaken 
for a Third World member and 
qualify for lots of aid from 
America. I think it's got a big 
shock coming, if that's the case. 
This part of foe world is far too 
cold to be a comfortable member 
of the Third World.” 

Another unexpected theory is 
that some sort of astral projection 
is taking place. What we think is 
the British economy is only the 
lifeless shell - foe real British 
economy is on a trip to another 
planet, or Australia, or some- 
where. The main proponent ofthis 
theory. Professor Andrew May- 
nard, explains it thus. 

“I've been reading this amazing 
book about astral projection, 
which says that if you do certain 
breathing exercises, you can ac- 
tually become disembodied and 
travel tremendous distances at 
incredibly cheap rates. Actually 
Tve only read foe first two 
chapters so far, but I don’t see why 
this shouldn't be foe answer, and it 
certainly makes sense.” 

It certainly makes as much 
sense as any other theory. But as 
the coma has now continued for so 
long, there is a growing move to 
have foe economy’s life support 
system turned off and simply let ii 
come to an end. America, Austra- 
lia and other relatives privately 
believe foal there is no further use 
for it and no prospect of life 
returning, and a complete switch- 
J* the thing. 

.Wed be kmda sorry to see 
Britain go,” says an American 
spokesman. “We’d miss all foe 
history and old houses and such, 
ntat s why we're buying so much 
of foe books, and paintings, and 
stuff now - get it out while we can. 
Let s hope foey can get foe Royal 
Family out before foe switch-oft”

GOVERNMENT for schools 


Oil price question over Sizewell 


The most significant measure 
of edurational legislation since 
1944, Sir Keith Joseph said 

yesterday Ws new bill, the 

largest statutory change since 
the Butler Act. On the face of it 
that was an exaggerated 
comparison. The ' new bill 
leaves the shape of the school 
intact. It alters very little who 
pays teachers, who grades their 
work, who appoints the janitor 
and who comes in to mow the 
playing fields. 

Hire and fire remain pretty 
firmly in the hands of the 
councils that are by Sir Keith’s 


confines of the publicly-pro- 
vided educati onal sector al- 
together. 

It need not be that way. If 
this education bill had ap- 
peared seven years ago, at the 
ontset of the administration’s 
policy peregrination, it would 
indeed have merited that 
rather portentous comparison 
with R-A-Butler’s chief work. 

For the bill creates a context, 
a bed for the consu mm ation of 
what ought to be schooling’s 
happiest marriage: the natural, 
sometimes passionate, desire 
of parents for the success and 


R Soon ■ and A*® natural, at best pas-

impressive list for which Sir - endowing parents with a man- 
Keith in particular often gets rial right to choose the place of 
Bbo hide credit He sees it their child's education, per- 
bonded together as the pursuit haps initially by giving parents 
of “standards” , a cry with great the wherewithal to top up the 
resonance in the history of a discretionary funds that

But for the public at large ' some advocates of a voucher

come to be seen through the 
prism of the teachers' dispute 
in which the government's 
position has been by no means 
crystal dear. Sir Keith sees his 
list as a framework but the 
.public — and it seems many of 
3is own party — think policy is 


motive is to facilitate the 
transfer from publicly-main- 
tained schools of those able 
and well-motivated pupils 
who are the mainstay of a good 
school's life. Sir Keith has 
done less than he might to 
educate those in his own party 


random. It is seen, and '“who still think of educational 
often correctly seen, as in- - vouchers as a panacea. - 


formed by a primordiaLTory 
ambition to escape from the 


Vouchers are only a raecha- 
nism for creating space for the 


maximum freedom of parents 
to choose, and to inject into 
the running of schools their 
commitment and enthusiasm. 
That space is limited, for it has 
to be found within a common 
framework of examinations, 
curriculum, teacher training 
and now vocational prepara- 

- lion, too. The language of the 
bill recognizes the idea of a 
common educational floor, de- 
nominated in terms of money 
per pupil or a core curriculum; 

- on this schools should be 
empowered and encouraged to 
build by raising money from 
parents and projects in order 

. to vary and expand their 
teaching and activities. 

Sir Keith could have been 
more imaginative. He might 
have gone much further than 
he has in freeing governing 
bodies from the shackles of 
council work practices. They 
might be ailowedto contract 
out small jobs of repair and 
refurbishment on the one hand 
and tasks of out of hours 
education and supervision on 
the other. 

The education bill 1986 is a 
positive measure. But it is only 
an instalment Educational 
policy needs two things. One 
should come from ministers’ 
speeches, and not just educa- 
tion ministers. It is vision. It is 
a sense of how publicly-pro- 
vided schools should provide 
not ephemeral excellence but 
individual attainment - how a 
society which is returning to 
pristine regard for individual 
flair and energy in economic 
life must provide tools to hone 
and shape the qualities of 
mind and personality which 
will sustain those individuals 
whefr they leave childhood. 
Those tools are the schools 
and colleges. 

Second, ministers cannot 
repeat often enough — if they 
are honest — that changing 
educational institutions will 
take time, a long time. There 
can be no overnight results 
from changes in the intake to 
teacher training or reforma- 
tion of school governing bod- 
ies. 


THE HILLSBOROUGH CIRCLE 


Liaison between the British 
and Irish governments under 
the Anglo-Irish agreement 
continues to produce benefits 
which, like many anti-terrorist 
policies, cannot and will not 
show instant results. 
Tuesday's announcement by 
Dr Garret FitzGerald that the 
Republic will sign the Euro- 
.oean Convention on the Sup- 
pression of Terrorism (and 
introduce appropriate domes- 
tic legislation) may not alter 
extradition figures overnight, 
but it builds two defences 
against attacks which pan be 
made against a joint inter- 
governmental approach to se- 
curity problems. 

First, it will be hard, for any 
future government' of the 
Republic of whatever stripe to 
renege on this commitment. 
Secondly; it will be that much 
harder for unionists to allege 
that the Republic is un- 
interested in catching and 
handing over terrorists, and 
that this reluctance is pro- 
tected by the constitution. Mr 
j’eter Robinson of the Demo- 
cratic Unionists may counter

Green belt pressures 

From Mr R- W. Lewis 
Sir; In recent months you nave 
published a number of articles 
reflecting the increasing pressure 
to release more green belt land m 
the South-east for housing and - 
industrial development, and tlius- 
njating the disparity between, un- 
employment levels and house 
prices there and in other res ons. . 
The study of Crawley by Wilbam 
Greaves on February 7 tun- 
emplovment at 5 per cent dK 
lowest in the cotintiy. over j.uw 
vacancies in the focal job 
a threobedroomed seroi selling for 
£50,000) provided an excellent 

example oithe conflicts which this 

kind of pressure can generate. 

In the current free-enterpnse 
climate there is a grave dangeruiat 
^ belt hnd wS be acnfi«d ^ 
die name of “job creation before 
people have a chance to reflect 


by saying more than signatures 
and blarney are needed to get 
rid of the IRA, but he is 
implicitly acknowledging that 
the south are at least in that 
business - which is progress of 
akind. 

Next week, the Prime Min- 
ister sees representatives of 
both unionist parties and Mr 
John Hume: of the Social 
Democratic and Labour Party. 
The government is beginning 
its search for some common 
ground on which the local 
political parties can be brought 
together alongside the Agree- 
ment. At the moment, both 
sides are playing grandmoth- 
ers footsteps; Unionists will 
not talk to anyone about 
devolved government while 
the Agreement remains in 
force. If there is no one to talk 
to, Mr Hume will not make 
good his general pledge to talk. 

Someone has to break this 
circle. The heavier obligation 
rests ou the nationalists. No 
matter how many times the 
British government stresses 
the . even-handed guarantees 
affirmed at Hillsborough, the 

that what has caused the present 
difficulties in. places like Crawley 
is not just prosperity, but a failure 
to plan bow sucb prosperity in the 
country as a whole can be 
maximised by the best use of the 
available resources of laud and 
manpower; 

Ii cannot make sense to use up 
the country’s finite stock of agri- 
cultural land to develop factories 
when many hundreds of existing 
industrial buildings are already 
standing empty, or to build new 
housing estates to help fill local - 
vacancies when over three million 
people who already have houses 
are crying out for iajob.' 

- To say, as Mr Greaves quotes 
the Chairman of Gatwick 2000 as 
saying, that local employers' are 
there because Gatwick is there and 
it is no use telling them to move to 
a depressed area, is merely to 
underline the failure of economic 


agreement is seen as having 
given more to nationalism 
than to unionism. If the SDLP 
wants the agreement to sur- 
vive and thrive, it can only get 
there by helping redress that 
imbalance. Mr Hume has to 
show, publicly, that he is 
prepared to work in a fair, 
devolved government 

This week the chairman of 
the Northern Ireland Police 
Federation said that his mem- 
bers might find it impossible 
to police protests against the 
Agreement if the numbers 
ranged against them were large 
enough. All other consid- 
erations are liable to be swept 
aside if this insidious attempt 
to undermine the Agreement 
finds support Quite apart 
from confirming Gttholic sus- 
picions that the Royal Ulster 
Constabulary is irrederaably 
sectarian, such confrontation 
would provide Mr Hume with 
an alibi for his inaction. If the 
RUC wishes to continue to call 
itself “Royal”, it had better 
ready itself to enforce the laws 
of HeTMajesty’s government 

Crawley because Gatwick b there, 
isn’t it reasonable to suppose that 
they wouldn't be there, and the 
resultant pressure on. green belt 
laud wouldn’t be there, if Gatwick 
were somewhere else?

From the Director cf the Town and 
Country Planning Association 
Sir. At the public inquiry into the 
Sizewell B nuclear power station 
the Central Electricity Generating 
Board's economic case was 
founded on its belief that oil prices 
would escalate during the 1980s 
and 1990s. Its central projection 
was that the real price of heavy 
fuel oil (delivered and taxed) 
would rise by 62 per cent between 
1981 and 1990and by 141 percent 
between 1981 and 2000. It also 
projected that international coal 
prices would follow suit, rising by 
58 per cent and ISO per cent over 
the same periods. 

On this basis, the board argued 
both that a nuclear power station 
would be more economic than a 
coal-fired station and that electric- 
ity would increase its share of the 
. UK energy market from 13.5 per 
cent to 15.8 percent between 1981 
and 2000. 

How different things seem now! 
Far from rising, the internatio nal 
price of oil has dropped from 
almost S30 a barrel in 1981 to 

Selling of water 

From Lord Nugent of Guildford 
Sir, You publish today (February 
14) a letter from the Ouurman of 
the Water Authorities Associ- 
ation, Mr Leu HID, resisting your 
suggestion, in your leading article 
on February 10, that an indepen- 
dent public body should be made 
responsible for safeguarding 
environmental standards when 
the water authorities are 
privatised. 

Mr Hill sees this suggestion as a 
major step towards splitting the 
existing integrated management of 
river basins, which has proved so 
beneficial in the past 12 years. 

These two conflicting view- 
points .vividly illustrate one of the 
major dilemmas posed by HM 
Government's proposal to 
privatise the water industry. 

The change from the existing 
structure, where water authorities 
are appointed by ministers and 
responsible through them to Par- 
liament, to a new structure, where 
the management is primarily 
responsible to private sharehold- 
ers. would make a fundamental 

Aid for Ethiopia 

From Dr Richard Pankhurst and 
i others 

Sir. In the most recent of their 
repeated attacks on Ethiopia the 
pro-Greater Somalia Horn of Af- 
rica Council make a number of 
tendentious statements (February 
18). 

Reference to the Ethiopian 
.Government's “armed 
' intervention” in Eritrea, Tigre and 
Ogaden would lead the reader to 
suppose that these are foreign 
countries, whereas they are in feet 
an integral part of Ethiopia. 

The statement that Soviet air- 
craft are “forcibly moving thou- 
sands of Eritreans and Tigreans to 
inhospitable regions” can scarcely 


below $20 and present indications 
are that it could soon fell to below 
$15 a barrel. 

Studies carried out for the 
inquiry by the Cambridge Eco- 
nomic Research Group showed 
that if oil and coal prices were to 
remain at their 1981 levels in real 
terms, the economic advantage of 
a nuclear over a coal-fired station 
would disappear. With a reduction 
in fossil fuel prices, a coal station 
would become more economic. 

Those of us who attended and 
followed the course of that long 
inquiry would be interested to 
know why the board is continuing 
to place orders for the Sizewell B 
station as if nothing had changed 
since h prepared its economic case 
in the immediate aftermath of the 
1979 oil mice rise. Does it still 
believe in the projections it made 
at that time? 

Yours sincerely.

constitutional change with im- 
plications for the whole manage- 
ment structure. Whereas, at 
present, environmental safeguards 
and monitoring are woven into 
the management operation, in 
future these would be the 
responsibility of the new Director 
General of Water Services or a 
new independent environmental 
authority, as your leading article 
suggests. 

In the present climate of public 
opinion Parliament is likely to 
insist on robust, independent 
safeguards both for public health 
and for the environment, in the 
event of privatisation. Either this 
will mean a major duplication of 
management machinery of the 
water authorities, or it will mean 
splitting off this function, as Mr 
Hill fears. In either case there will 
be an increase in cost and a loss of 
efficiency. 

Mr Hfll’s suggestion of a re- 
think of the policy of privatisation 
seems apposite.

be supported. The resettlement 
scheme here referred to does not 
cover Eritrea. And four times as 
many come from peaceful Wollo 
as from Tigre. It is a matter of 
opinion whether the arid and 
eroded soil of Tigre is more or less 
hospitable than the well watered 
resettlement areas of the south- 
west. _ 

It is true that Ethiopia was never 
a British protectorate, but that 
would scarcely seem a reason to 
withhold aid from one of the 
poorest countries in the world.

! Tax returns 

From Mr S. A. Jones 
Sir, The Chairman of the Board of 
Inland Revenue, Sir Lawrence 
Airey, should not be “shocked” at 
the suggestion (Diary, February 5) 
that the promotion prospects of 
his tax inspectors are measured by 
the amount of additional tax they 
bring in. 

Every tax inspector engaged in 
accounts investigation work 
knows full well that his future 
progress in the Revenue depends 
almost entirely on the “results” he 
achieves in terns of additional 
cash (tax mtenet and penalties) 
felling due as a result of his 
intervention. Similarly, every ac- 
counts-investigation trainee is 
made aware that he will not be 
promoted to inspector on passing 
his examinations unless be has 


achieved the necessary level of 
“results” from the work allocated 
to him during his training period. 

Sir Lawrence denies that inspec- 
tors are paid by commission. He 
must, however, be aware that 
inspectors at principal ' level and 
above now qualify for “merit" 
bonus payments — and the Rev- 
enue criteria of merit in the 
examination of business accounts 
are, I, the yield from investigation 
work, and 2, the amount of 
additional profits brought into 
charge through technical adjust- 
ments in non-investigation cases.

Barristers 9 fees 

From Mr F. Ashe Lincoln, QC 
Sir, Your excellent editorial (Feb- 
ruary 1 1) mi the subject of fees for 
the Bar. whilst cogently 
emphasising some of the basic 
features of the present con- 
troversy, foiled to emphasise what 
is a basic fault of the system of 
legal aid. 

Unhappily legal aid is more 
costly than it might be for two 
reasons. Firstly, it is carried on in 
an unbusinesslike manner and. 
secondly, it results in very long 
delays in the payment of 
hamsters* fees. In criminal legal- 
aid cases a delay of between nine 
months and a year is not un- 
common and in civil cases even 
longer delays are experienced. 

. The combination of delays of 
this magnitude with inadequate 
fees, with no interest paid on the 
outstanding fee and the interven- 
ing inflation, does result in hard- 
ship to the junior barrister. 

There can be no doubt that the 
whole legal profession requires, in 
the public interest, a form of 
rationalisation- Almost all legal 
systems in civilised countries 
recognise that advocacy is the 
work of trained advocates. Even in 
the fused profession in the USA 
lawyers who specialise in ad- 
vocacy regard themselves as “trial 
lawyers”. 

The logical consequence of this 
is that all litigation should be in 
the bands of trained advocates, 
that is. banisters, to whom the 
public should have direct access. 
The Law Society, in their dis- 
cussion paper, recognised that 
theft is no need in most cases for 
the employment of both a solicitor 
and a barrister. The public is 
entitled to receive the services of 
the best trained advocates. 

The remedy lies in the hands of 


the Bar itself, which could and 
should abolish the restrictive prac- 
tice which requires barristers to be 
instructed by a solicitor. The 
logical and economical system 
would be for the public to have 
direct access to a barrister who 
could, if the case required it, 
employ a solicitor to assist him, 
just as an accountant may be 
required to deal with accounts or 
indeed any other expert in particu- 
lar fields. 

If such a system were in- 
troduced it could cheapen litiga- 
tion and provide a more efficient 
service. It would clearly require 
considerable reorganisation of the 
Bar and of the whole legal system, 
but with co-operation special 
arrangements could easily be 
made for a transition period. 

Yours truly,

Around the world, wherever 
new concert halls have been built, 
it has been found that the pro-

in itself cranes a public eager and 
adaptable to regular attendance at 
symphony concerts. 

In this country we have always 
taken it for granted that at least the

Keeping a clear 
; head in cricket 

From the Reverend James Funndl 
e Sir. I know that it is easy to be wise 

- after the event, but should it not 
1 be the duty of the captain or the 
> manager of an England touring 
1 party, where there are inevitably a 
f limited number of players, to 
i order them all to wear a face mask 
i when batting? Such masks are one 
i of the few advantages of having 
lived through the Kerry Packer era 
[ of international cricket 

• I do not imagine that any of the 
i England players will bat against 
5 the West Indies, nor indeed any 
I other team, without using toe 
[ other kind of protector which is 
available to them. 

Yours faithfully.

Avoidable clashes 

From Sir Reginald Mur lev 
Sir, Contrary to what Dr Peter Slee 
avers in his letter (February 13) 
the education “crisis” (and the 
NHS “crisis" for that matter) is 
not purely a crisis of values. The 
1944 Education Act and the 1946 
NHS Act virtually nationalised 
the majority of our schools and 
hospitals. 

If Dr Slee prefers to claim that 
education was standardised rather 
than nationalised, I shall not argue 
with him; but experience shows 
that nationalised schools and hos- 
pitals have become battlegrounds 
for both trades unions and so- 
called professional bodies. Thai is 
something which children and 
patients could have better 
avoided. 

As for “under-funding” our 
schools (Mr Downes’s letter of the 
same date), I strongly suspect that 
the per caput cost of educating a 
child in a State school (and also of 
treating a patient in a State 
hospital) is frequently higher than 
in comparable independent in- 
stitutions if the central and local 
bureaucratic costs are included. 
Yours faithfully,

Architects 9 image 

From Mr E. Maxwell Fry 
Sir, Mr Charles KnevitL in a not 
unkindly article (February 7), 
nominates the architect as toe 
“anti-hero” of our times. He 
speaks well of toe social concern of 
the early Modem Movement and 
coukl have noted the corollary of 
the new towns and the then LCC 
revival of interest in housing and 
planning, in and out of the city, 
including the infilling rather than 
the needless expansion of villages 
in the open countryside. 

Will these critics of the architect 
look inward to the chaotic and 
badly informed times which they 
have themselves created, to ask 
themselves, as toe present clients 
of architecture, what they have 
done, or will do. to see toe issues 
as clearly as our clients and we, 
their architects, in the years of the 
movement? 

It is easy to make architects the 
scapegoats and it makes good 
media news. But before an archi- 
tect is employed he needs a client, 
and if clients are bemused, un- 
caring. swayed by fashion or 
basically indifferent, what can be 
expected of their architects? 

A client, whatever he, she, or it 
may be. carries a responsibility 
that they share with those em- 
ployed, and I would like to see 
these responsibilities discussed 
with a view to toe formation of 
well-based opinions and a move- 
ment in the body social that might 
guide us all in our way to a better 
architectural inheritance. 

May I hope. Sir, that your 
responsible organ will initiate it? 
Yours sincerely, 

MAXWELL FRY, 

West Lodge Cotherstone, 

Barnard Castle, co Durham.

FEBRUARY 21 1855 

“On this Dav" January 27 noted , 
how The Times compelled the 
Aberdeen government to resign 
during the war in the Crimea. As 
the leading article below shows, 
the paper continued in its 
ounpaign against foe conduct of 

the war, in particular the 
incompetence displayed by the 
British commanders in the field. 
Lord Raglan, the commander-in- 
chief, was the main target He 
narrowly missed being censured in 
the Commons and his recall 
seemed inevitable; only his death 
in June prevented- that 
humiliation. 


[Failures in the 
Crimea] 

The causes to which the failure of 
our recent military operations in 
the Crimea have been attributed 
are manifold. Every speaker or 
commentator, in Parliament or out 
of it, examines the subject by the 
light of his own previous ideas or 
prepossessions. According to one, 
the doctors have been to blame: 
according to another, the transport 
service. A third will tell you that all 
Lord Raglan, humanly speaking, 
could be expected to accomplish 
was to keep a register of the 
thermometric changes in the 
neighbourhood of Balaklava amid 
the corpses of his former legions. A 
fourth will have it that the Duke of 
Newcastle was bound not only to 
remit stores to Balaklava harbour, 
but to take such precautions that 
the unfortunate men for whose use 
they were intended might have 
reaped the benefit of his labours 
and bis foresight. The aristocratic 
character of our service did all the 
mischief - or the disproportionate 
partition of the work - or the crass 
incapacity of the motley Staff - or, 
finally, the inclemency of the 
seasons and the act of God. We 
believe that the disappearance of 
the British forces lately in leagues 
before Sebastopol is due to this one 
cause, which embraces all others, - 
that there has not been a single 
man in the high commands either 
at home or in the Crimea who was a 
master of the Art Of War— A blue 
riband athwart the breast does not 
make a man a councillor, any more 
than a red coat and a decoration or 
two will imply talents for high 
military c ommand. .. Whatever 
Lord Raglan may have been in 
subordinate commands under the 
orders of the Duke of Wellington, 
forty years have elapsed since he 
obtained his distinctions; and. 
unfortunately, it is more easy to 
forget than to acquire. There is no 
suggestion that our War Ministers 
at home, either recent or present, 
ever learned their trade; or, indeed 
- save we except Lord Panmure’s 
peaceful service at the War-office, - 
that they ever bad an opportunity 
of learning it. When the whole 
chapter of prevarication, shuffling, 
excuse, end declamation against 
everybody who has dared to cen- 
sure their acts has been exhausted, 
it is impossible to extract from it 
any valid argument in favour of 
those who despatched a large 
British force upon an expedition 
against a formidable fortress in the 
autumn without having provided 
for the contingency of a whiter 
campaign. It was surely on the 
cards that the walls of Sebastopol 
might not fell down as the walls of 
Jericho fell of old before the blast 
of horn and trumpet, and, if the 
meditated assault was to be con- 
verted into a siege, surely the 
troops engaged in it must be 
victualled, lodged, and clothed in 
some form or other. This is what 
was not done™ The probability is, 
that had a corporal’s guard from 
the Coldstreazns been directed 
n gaimd’ the windmill on Wimble- 
don common, and had it been so 
handled, the corporal and his men 
would have perished by a fete 
similar to that of the late British 
army before Sebastopol.. 

Can any conduct be more worthy 
of admiration than that of the 
British soldier, true and faithful 
even unto death in the flooded 
trenches and on the chill bivouac? 
Alas for that burning but misdi- 
rected courage! Alas for that 
touching but useless fortitude! The 
one and the other are equally 
thrown away , or serve but to mid to 
the enduring indignation with 
which every man must think of so 
dismal a tragedy as the one before 
Sebastopol... Generals who do not 
understand the art of war must be 
employed, and those who do 
understand the art of war me it not 
be employed..

distinction, where a “resident” 
symphony orchestra can perform 
(and, what is equally important, 
rehearse). 

Among these halls the Phil- 
harmonic in Liverpool has for 
many years been a distinguished 
centre for music: it seems almost 
unbelievable that the vagaries of 
politics can menace the existence 
of the hall, and indeed the Royal 
Liverpool Philharmonic Or- 
chestra itself. Can some prom- 
inent influential person, or 
organisation, help us to channel 
effort on all sides to avert this 
calamity? 

Yours sincerely.

Seen along the line 

From Mr J. Pickard 
Sir. Dr Fursdon (February 12) is 
right to cherish nostalgic feelings 
about the absence of the lonely 
and hardworking scarecrow. 

1 suspect that it is also sorely 
missed by* some members of the 
animal kingdom as well: the one 
recently erected in a field adjacent 
to my house is at the moment 
.providing invaluable shelter from 
the east wind for a family of 
shivering pheasants.

Science report 

Wheat grains in Sweden’s petrol 

By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 





In spite of the publicized use 
of sugar cane in Brazil as a raw 
material for the production of 
motor fneL the economics of 
growing crops for todnstriai 
purposes Is generally dis- 
missed as uneconomic. 

Conventional wisdom is that 
energy topnt to the form of 
machinery, fertilizers and pes- 
ticides is almost certain to 
exceed the value of tbe output. 
Grain, for example, could not 
be sold profitably at a price 
that would compete with that 
of fossil fuels. 

In Sweden, however, a plant 
producing ethanol from wheat 
has been operating on the 
shores of Lake Vanern for over 
a year. Some 50 garages in the 
Stockholm area are <pHmg ' 


petrol which contains 6 par 
cent wheat-based ethanol. 


The attraction of ethanol is 
that it improves the octane 
rating of petrol and so reduces 
the need for lead additives. A 
progressive reduction to lead 
additives is the subject of EEC 
legislation, which Britain is 
pledged to follow. ~ 

Even without the stimulus of 
EEC support prices, Sweden 
shares the same problem of 
surplus grain production, (n 
1984 the wheat harvest was 
some seven milfion tonnes, 
fearing a surplus for disposal 
of nearly two million tonnes. 

The ethanol plant can hard- 
ly be said to have made much 
of a dent ia tbe Doantato. Its 


present capacity to 30,000 
tonnes of wheat a year, from 
which it produces 6,000 cubic 
metres of ethanoL and plans to 
buOd a larger plant with a 
150,000 tonne capacity have 
been, shelved. Althoagh . the 
operation , makes a small prof- 
it, tbe return to .not large 
enough to repay tbe capital 
investment. 

Tumbling oil prices have 
further redneed the prospects 
for todnstriai crops in- the 
immediate future. But the 
Swedish plant also produces a 
number of marketable byprod- 
ucts, including carbon dioxide, 
starch and a high protein 
animal feed, and the combina- 
tion could m due course attract 
greater interest

Communist mischief-makers. 
The film, at any rate, has been

Sogo Ishii's Crazy Family 
makes an interesting compan- 
ion-piece to last week’s The 
Empty Table. Both films deal 
with family break-ups; both 
lake serious issue with codes 
of behaviour in Japanese soci- 
ety. Their aesthetic strategies, 
however, are far different. In 
The Empty Table the veteran 
Kobayashi adopts the re- 
strained, classical “an house” 
manner, with beautiful com- 
positions and a controlled, 
slow pace, Ishii, not yet 30, 
opts instead for the brute force

German history figures large m

reveals no fewer than 20 fitm<

the Second World War’— and that is 
without including the hundreds of 
films that are screened on the

profitably in The Night Porter. 
Based on a Japanese novel. The 
Buddhist Cross by Junichiro 
Tanizaki, it is an absurd farrago 
about a demonic Japanese femme 
fatale and sex in the top diplomatic 
echelons of Iate-Thirties Germany. 
Gudrun Landgrebe struggles gamely 
to give a serious performance 
against all the odds of a ludicrous 
script and a cast of inept actors. 
_A different aspect of German 
history is treated with admirable 


freshness in the first feature film of 
Wieland Speck, a young German 
director who has previously made 
some creditable underground 
shorts. Westier is a romantic love- 
story of two young men, one from 
West Berlin and one from the East, 
and the obstacles to their meeting. 
Through this small personal story 
Speck tellingly demonstrates the 
cumulative effect of inhumanity 
and indignity in the rituals ofborder 
checks and searches. Rough, made 
on a shoestring and using 8mm 
clandestine footage shot in the East, 
it is a confident; touching, intelli- 
gent and promising work. - DJL

The monologues that con- 
vey these potted histories, 
written by Gungor Oilmen 
and translated by Talal Sait

not but think, make a particu- 
larly riveting read. The artistic 
purpose of the evening is 
surely to give a mature and 
widely experienced player the 
opportunity to rehearse her 
portfolio of acting techniques. 
One is left feeling that it would 
be interesting to see her in a 
real play.

Three Sisters

Launching the Bristol Old 
Vic’s fortieth anniversary sear 
son, Paul Unwin’s production 
sports some ' leading names 
mid passages of memorably 


truthful acting; none of which 
compensates for its confusing- 
ly over-simplified approach to 
the play. 

Mr Unwin has rightly noted 
that one of its kev elements is 
indifference. With the excep- 
tion of Natasha, the only 
character who achieves any- 
thing, the rest of the house- 
hold shrug off their defeats 
and frustrations by affecting 


deserves Alwyne Taylor's 
treatment as a buxom, monu- 
mentally self-satisfied matron 
whom Andrei would never 
have fallen for in the first 
place. 

Where such schematic loy- 
alties do not impose them- 
selves, the play spring 
resiliently hade to life: as 
where the sisters tease 
Chebutikhin about his unpaid 
rent (very refreshing and en- 
tirely just to treat this as a 
family job:), or pursue the 
fleeing Andrei to haul him 
back into the party. 

With no sign of excess fat or 
mental lethai^y, Tony Robin- 
son is a startling Andrei, but it 
makes good sense to see him

There is something witchlike

some long-unspeakable past: ; 
the night of a fair, a decent i 
stranger and his decent lady, 
and a laughing contest that led 
to tragedy. 

The booms and cackles of 
her laughter, the invention 
and variety of tone that enable 
her to people the remembered 
scene, all are conjured up in 
her unstrained, unfaltering 
voice. 

Mommo’s elder grand-

that the tale be finished, and 
so the ptey closes in a scene of 
reconciliation and hope. Ma-

performance in this role and, 
as her over-fertile sister, Mary 
McEvoy gives strong support 

The dialogue is grimly fun- 
ny, laughing at the tragedy of 
existence. “What use is man?” 
Mommo asks. “What utility 
the earwig?” The sense of life 
flowing and turning is con- 
veyed so powerfully in Garry 
Hynes's direction that the 
play, fresh from its premiere

cliche tag of an unforgettable

Indicators 
‘volatile’ 

The index of longer teadijig 
indicators of the British econ- 
omy fell from 106. 1 in Decem- 
ber to 104.8 in January, and 
the shorter leading index from 
97.7 to 96.4. 

These are supposed to indi- 
cate directions tor the econo- 
my up to 18. months and six 
months ahead respectively, 
but the Central Statistical 
Office says they are at present 
too volatile to give a dear 
indication of economic pros- 
pects. 

The coincident index 
dipped from 917 to 911 in 
January, indicating a slight 
slowdown in the economy.

BP defends petrol prices 
despite record profits 


By David Young, Energy Correspondent 


BP yesterday announced 
record Profits of £1.6 billion 
and defended its decision not 
to cut prices at tire petrol 
pumps more quickly. 

The announcement came 
against a background of tum- 
bling world oil prices and 
pressure on ofi companies to 
reduce petrol prices. 

Most of the improved prof- 
its came from what the indus- 
try ■describes as “downstream” 
operations — converting crude 
oil into products such as 
petrol, home heating oil, plas- 
tics, detergents and chemicals. 

• Sir Peter Walters, tire chair- 
man, said that the return on 
BPs investments in re fining 
operations were “about tire 
right level”. 

Sir Peter said: “Looking 
ahead to 1986 our exploration 
and production business will 
generate lower profits to the 
extent that erode oil prices are 
generally lower in 1986 com- 
pared with 1985. 


“However, the impact will 
be moderated because of tax 

rates in the UK. In the short 

term, lower feedstock (crude 
oil) prices may also benefit 
other oil r efining , marketing 
and chemicals businesses”. 

- Mr David Kendall head of 
BPs refining operations, said 
that a3 now passing through 
the refineries to be turned into 
petrol had often been bought 
.six weeks in advance. 

BP also said that for five 
years profits on selling petrol 
had been virtually non exis- 
tent and defended maki n g a 
return for its investments 
when it could. 

Overall profits would have 
been even better Last year, but 
the company wrote off £929 
million on restructuring its 
A m erican subsidiary Sohio, 
and its chemicals and coal 
businesses. 

The company is also up- 
grading valuations on the oil 
reserves that it soil plans to 



fllthp jigh

ment about right” 

develop, despite the fell in oil 
prices, to bring them into tine 
with other companies’ valua- 
tions. 

The -heal of tire company's 
exploration division said that 
development plans had been 
drawn up in October on the 
basis of an oil price of $25 per 
barrel and would now need to 


be reviewed, 
projects 
being cancelled. 

The detailed profit figures 
of BP underline the remark- 
able turn round in the profit- 
ability of the petrol refining 
and sales operations. 

After years of low returns 
petrol sates have made sub- 
stantial profits because of 
felling crude prices and, BP 
says, the cut in manpower at 
refineries. 

BPs exploration operating 
profits rose 3 per cent to £1.4 
million 

The company’s oil trading 
operations made significantly 
improved profits and BP Gas 
increased its profit margins by 
one third to £129 million. 

BP Chemicals maintained 
its profitability at £67 million, 
although operations in miner- 
als cancel that out with a loss 
of £67 million. 

However, profits on coal 
rose to their highest ever at 
£28 million and Sohio con- 
tributed £814 million 


Slow growth hits dollar as 
Baker urges deficit cut 


From Bailey Morris, Washington 


The dollar dropped sharply 
in nervous trading yesterday 
as dealers digested news of 
dower-than-expected growth 
in tire US economy late last 
year and attempted to recon- 
cile conflicting statements by 
lop administration officials 
over the direction of exchange 
rates.. 

US Commerce Department 
officials disclosed yesterday 
that real gross national prod- 
uct in the final quarter of last 
grew by only 1:2%, just 
that forecast, asa resultof 
sbarper-than-expected rise 
in tire trade deficit. Net US 
exports dropped by $14.2 
billion in the fourth quarter 
instead of tire estimated $7.8 
billion. 


The latest figures were re- 
leased even as Mr James 
Baker, the Treasury Secretary, 
appeared on Capitol Hill for a 
second day of Congressional 
testimony in which he urged 
Congress to cut sharply the 
$200 bOfion budget deficit to 
allow mare leeway in setting 
monentary policy. 

Mr Baker said under ques- 
tioning that be believed tire 
US Federal. Reserve Board, 
which acts as a central bank, 
would have more room to ease 
monetary policy if the budget 
deficits were reduced. Mr 
. Baker has been arguing for an 
easier money policy and a 
lower dollar to reduce the US 
trade deficit which remains a 
- blight on tire economy. 


The Treasury Secretary 
spoke before testimony by Mr 
Paul Volcker, the Federal 
Reserve Board chairman, who 
indicated on Wednesday that 
he was not anxious to ease 
credit further because he 
feared the -dollar's recent 
plunge could become unman- 
ageable. 

Markets reacted strongly 
that comment taking it as a 
sign that neither credit nor US 
interest rates would be eased 
short term. In addition, the 
statements were regarded as a 
strong signal that the dollar 
would have an important 
impact on US monetary poli- 
cy in the months ahead. Mr 
Volcker believes the dollar has 
dropped far enough. 


Rank buys

UK bank near to 
Docklands deal 

By Judith Hnntley, CommerdaJ Property Correspondent 


One of Britain's big four 
clearing banks is to take a 
significant amount of space in 
the 10 million sq ft financial 
sendees centre planned for 
Canary Wharf in London’s 
Docklands. 

Mr G Ware Travelstead, 
who is spearheading the devel- 
opment for the consortium of 
foreign banks involved in the 
£1 bution project, said yester- 
day that the deal would be 
announced within the next 
few days. But the scheme still 
hinges on the Docklands Light 
Railway now being built from 
the Isle of Dogs enterprise 
zone, which contains Canary 
Wharfi to Tower Hill in the 
City of London. 

The consortium, which in- 
cludes Credit'Suisse and First 
Boston with Morgan Stanley 
as a prospective tenant, in- 
tends spending about £74 
million to extend the rafl link 


to Mansion House next to the 
Bank of England. The project 
will not go ahead unless this 
extension is approved by Par- 
liament 

Mr Ware Travelstead, of 
First Boston Real Estate, says 
that Canary Wharf will be 
financed on 15-year fixed 
interest money, and that occu- 
piers wffi be offered a 15-year 
lease with no rent reviews 
along American lines. 

He has yet to sign the 
agreement to buy the 71-acre 
freehold site from the London 
Docklands Development Cor- 
poration but he says that will 
be done once the rail exten- 
sion is approved. 

The consortium says it has 
occupiers for 4 million soft of 
its development from arms 
which cannof find the right 
kind of space in the Square 
Mile ahead of big bang.

Mr Clark said that be would 
like to look at ways in which

sion, which comes under the

Mr Clark, who became Min-

Secretary of State for Trade 
and Industry, also criticised 
restrictions on exports of 
technology to the Soviet bloc. 


S Africa 
agrees 
solution 
on debt 

By Richard Thomson 
Banking Correspondent 

South Africa yesterday re- 
luctantly agreed a solution to 
its refusal to repay $10 billion 
short-term foreign hank debt. 

'Announcing the temporary 
arrangement. Dr Fritz 
Leutwiler, who is acting as 
intermediary between South 
Africa and its bank creditors, 
said: “This was an interim 
measure designed as a step 
towards normality in South 
Africa's external financial 
arrangements” 



Dr Fritz Leatwfler “a step 
towards normality” 

He said the agreement was 
conditional on clear progress 
by South Africa towards abol- 
ishing apartheid. 

Dr Leutwiler said that a 
meeting in London yesterday 
between South African gov- 
ernment officials and 30 ma- 
jor creditor banks reached 
broad agreement on a set of 
repayment proposals. 

It was not a formal resched- 
uling agreement. and involved 
individual arrangements be- 
tween banks and their debtors. 

Of South Africa’s $10 bil- 
lion short-term debt, 5 per 
cent would be repaid between 
the end of March and March 
31, 1987, with the rest rolled 
over for another year. 

The interest charged would 
be limited to 1 per cent above 
the amount charged on the 
loans when South Africa first 
introduced its “standstill” on 
repayments last summer. 

South Africa has external 
debts totalling $24 billion but 
the standstill applies only to 
$14 billion 

Dr Leutwiler said the banks 
would now form a committee 
to work out the details 
He said that politics had not 
been discussed at the meeting 
but had formed the back- 
ground. 

The meeting also agreed 
that the situation would be

Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 

Whisky firm’s plan to 
avoid Monopolies bar 


The Government’s rather 
mechanistic attitude to competition 
in merger policy (save in the Allied- 
Lyons case) is allowing the new 
highly competitive and ingenious 
folk in the City to treat the policy 
with a contempt it may well deserve. 
The technique is to sell off just 
enough combined market share to 
climb out of reference to the 
Monopolies Commission. The 
Guinness camp, managed by Morgan 
GrenfeU, has now emulated the 
unilateral plea bargaining pioneered 
by none other than Morgan GrenfeU 
in its role as adviser to United 
Biscuits. 

The scheme dreamt up to avoid the 
new Guinness bid for Distillers being 
sent to the Commission is not so 
convincingly clear cut as the straight- 
forward plan to separate United’s KP 
from Imperial's Golden Wonder 
snacks. Pulling together a series of 
secondary brands with associated 
bottling and blending plants for 
Morgan Grenfell to sell, at whatever 
they will fetch, neatly cuts the share 
of the home whisky market of the 
combined group below 25 per cent 
Most of the 13 per cent share of the 
market being sold, however, is simply 
in discount brands that sell strictly on 
price. Worldwide rights would be 
divested only in Claymore and John 
Barr, though that need be no business 
of the Commission. Certainly the 
divestment should cause little pain to 
Guinn ess/Di still ers from a marketing 
point of view since the market share 
could easily be recouped if required. 
If the OFT line is as mechanistic as it 
seems, however, a Government re- 
fusal to accept the straight divest- 
ment of market share would make it 
appear even more to be taking sides. 

Assuming the ploy is successful 
the bid competition is on again with a 
vengeance, even if Grand Metropoli- 
tan decides not to make it a three-way 
fight Guinness has a strong edge on 
cash alternatives. Its 630p per Distill- 
ers share compares with 600p from 
ArgylL That may turn out to be more 
significant than the relative nominal 
values of the share-based packages, 
where at present 648p from Guineess 
compares with 635p from ArgylL 
The new profit forecast from 
Distillers gives scope for further bids. 
Lower pension costs offset adverse 
currency movements to allow a 
forecast of £280 million pretax 
against £236 million and a helpfully 
low tax charge converts that into 
earnings of 50.66p per share against 
37.71p. The Guinness cash offer 
would therefore be only 12.4 times 
forecast nominal earnings. 

Against that, however, it is becom- 
ing a lot harder for the rivals to 
underwrite higher bids. Distillers 
comes to be an ever higher propor- 
tion of the merged companies as the 
bids increase, so higher share offers 
could soon begin to sag under their 
own weight. That consideration ap- 
plies particularly to Argyll, which 
could see a retail share rating being 
heavily diluted. The lack of response 
of Distillers shares to yesterday’s 
developments suggests the market is 
sceptical, but that allows the rivals to 
pick up shares in the market The 
Argyll camp revealed almost 3 mil- 
lion more yesterday, bringing its 
holdings up to 13 million. Argyll 
certainly needs to save a little money. 

It could find itself buying up to £40 
million of the costs of the Guinness 
bid if it wins the day. 

Elliott gears up 

The apparent ease with which United 
Biscuits/Imperial and 

Guinness/Distillers have extricated 
themselves from references to the 
Monopolies Commission and then 
rebid must be making John Elliott of 
Elders IXL wonder where he has gone 
wrong.

By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 
Among British 


Although a specific deadline 
for. negotiations on the bus 
operation has not been laid 
down, there is not much room 
for mstBoeavrebecause BLand 
the Government are looking to 
its future being settled by the 
end of March. 

Land Rover, with its associ- 
ated Freight Rover, is in :the 
sights of seven groups. Land 


Rovers and Range Rovers are 
manufactared at Sotihaifa on 
the southern edge of Birming- 
ham. Last year the Sofiholl 
factory tamed out 44,500 vehi- 
cles, of which 13,500 were 
Range Rovers. Nearer the dty 
centre the Freight Rover fac- 
tory last year tamed ont 
18,900 Sherpas. 

Land and Freight Rover last 
year had a turnover of proba- 
bly £600 millioa with the 

Sherpa Operation accounting 

for possibly £100 tuillimt. 
Profits at the trading level 
have been iipnmag at Laid 
{Rover. In 1984 they amounted 
to £2 million, but in the first 
half of last year rose to £5.7 
million. But no indication has 
been given of the Land Rover 
performance at the more cru- 
cial pretax level 

The seven wanting Land 
Rover are GM, Mr Roland 
“Tiny”Rowland’s Lonrho, 
AvdingBaiford, a Land Rover 
management buy-out gronp 
and tkree unwarn ed sartors, 
two foreign and otte based in 
Britain.

thought to be interested in 
Land Rover, the privatized 
Jagnar has said it has no 
immediate interest, and GKN 
is among the components man- 
ufacturers which approve of a 
GM link. 

Lonrho is a conglomerate 
with a aide range of interests 
from mining to newspapers 
and Scotch whisky. It has an 
extensive international vehicle 
distribution network, especial- 
ly in Third World countries, 
and it believes that land 
Rover sates could be lifted by 
exploiting Lonrbo’s strengths. 

Aveting, Barford, which 
makes heavy contraction 
equipment at its Grantham 
factory, was part of BL until it 
was privatized fa 1983. 

The management buy-out of 
Land Rover is being attempted 
by a consortium led by Mr, 
David Andrews, BL’s execu- 
tive director responsible for 
the commercial vehides divi- 
sion, backed by five senior 
Land Rover managers. 


Ley tend trucks has also 
attracted the attention of one 
unnamed foreign group. The 
trucks and bus operation in 
1984 had trading fames of £61 
million. There was an im- 
provement in the first half of 
last year, when there was a 
trading loss of £235 million 
against £33.7 million In the 
corresponding period of the 
previous year. The greater 
losses proportionately were 
made in bus manufacturing. 

Ley land is a key supplier of 
buses, and accounts fin- a large 
slice of the British market

be a target not only for Aveting

Dawson may seek 
to recover bid cost 

By Teresa Poole 

Dawson International yes- pared to compromise our high 


today withdrew from the 
battle for Coats Patons, the 
Glasgow-based clothing and 
textile company which has 
agreed a takeover by Vantona 
viyelia. Dawson said it was 
considering legal steps to re- 
cover its £6 million costs. 

Dawson launched a £625 
million agreed bid for Coats 
Patons at the end of last 
month but two weeks later 
Coats Patons announced it 
had agreed the £700 million 
Vantona offer. 

Dawson’s chairman and 
chief executive, Mr Ronald 
Miller, said; “We fed agrieved 
and we have taken legal 
advice. That advice is that we 
should look further into the 
matter.” In a letter to share- 
holders he said that “the 
manner of these events is 
entirely foreign to our way of 
conducting our affairs. 

"We are withdrawing our 
offer as we are neither pre- 


standards nor extend our re- 
sources further against what 
we considered was already a 
full and fair price." 

Mr Miller claims that Daw- 
son incurred the expense of 
underwriting the cash offer 
because the board of Coals 
Patons insisted on a cash 
alternative in the original 
merger terms. **We agreed to 
incur them only because we 
were led to believe the board 
of Coats Patons were commit- 
ted to supporting our offer, 
that they would remain so 
committed.’’ 

Mr Jim McAdam, chief 
executive of Coats Patons, 
yesterday denied that his com- 
pany was in any way liable for 
Dawson’s costs. “They did 
raise with us the question of 
sharing costs back when the 
offer was being discussed and 
we told them that was some- 
thing we could not 
contemplate,” he said.

Lyons is not due to be decided on by 
the Commission until June. Mr 
Elliott, in London this week to 
announce Elders’ interim results and 
to see the Commission today, is 
confident he will convince the 
Monopolies men of the financial 
soundness of his bid. The reference 
was made because of fears about 
gearing levels, Mr Elliott claims. 

The reasons for his confidence are 
not entirely obvious. Elders' 
debt/equity stands at a hefty 100 per 
cent and Australian interest rates are 
a steep 20 per cent. The company 
managed to increase interim pre-tax 
profits by 41 per cent to AS73.8 
million (£36.4 million), although 
operating profits from pure trading 
were down 5.8 per cent at AS 1 19.7 
million. 

Even if the Commission were to be 
convinced by Elders’ 350-page sub- 
mission, the battle for Allied is a very 
long way from being won Allied’s 
shares rose 3p yesterday to 286p, 
putting the company well out of reach 
of Elders’ 255p a share bid. There 
must be some consolation in the fact 
that Elders is showing a £32 million 
profit on its 6 per cent stake. 

Mr Elliott would not be drawn on 
his interest in the Imperial bid scene. 
His previous agreement to sell 
Allied's food division to Imperial 
looks somewhat hypothetical at the 
moment, although he claims there are 
more than 10 interested buyers for 
the division On an even more 
speculative note, Mr Elliott is be- 
lieved to be interested in Courage, if 
chunks of Imperial were ever to be 
sold off. 


Speaking for the City § 

Time is running short for the 
Financial Services Bill, which is due 
to be passed into law by tbe middle of 
the year. There are still four im- 
portant outstanding questions which 
the parliamentary draftsmen do not 
seem to be able to solve in words 
acceptable to the relevant sections of 
the City. Yet there still seems to be a 
disconcerting lack of urgency at the 
Securities and Investment Board. 

The issues are: defining a pro- 
fessional trader as distinct from an 
occasional or private user of a 
market; the related need to distin- 
guish in the rules between primary 
and secondary markets; delineating 
the responsibilities of self-regulatory 
organizations; and granting SROs 
indemnity. 

All the designated SROs accept the 
premise of the legislation, that it 
should protect the private investor. 

But rules protecting the private 
investor can be a serious competitive 
handicap. Thus Eurobond houses are 
again giving warning that pro- 
hibitions on them against cold-calling 
the chairman of ICI could drive the 
business, which last year issued £80 
billion of bonds from London, out of 
the City. 

One might expect Ian Steers, the 
spokesman for the International 
Securities Regulatory Organization, 
to make such a claim. But tbe ISRO's 
argument yesterday that all SROs are 
affected by these four points is 
correcL The lead regulator concept — 
now restricted to governing capital 
adequacy — has not settled the 
question of how many SROs a firm 
might have to join. Nor is the 
Government’s lack of concern over 
the failure to grant indemnity to 
SROs bolstering confidence in the 
Bill. 

Changes are urgently needed in the 
Bill. SROs and their members are 
most reluctant to leave unclear 
passages to the interpretation of the 
SIB, lest a future government should 
use the SIB against the City. As 
spokesman-designate for the City, the 
SIB should use all its influence to 
ensure that the bill, when, enacted, is 
as complete as possible.

Real Time 


More rapid expansion by 
foe big travel agents is bring 
signalled with further take- 
overs in prospect increasing 
foe threat to smaller agencies. 

The Co-op travel shops 
chain, which has announced a 
£1 million re-launch in a drive 
for more trade, is the latest to 
set its sights on fast expansion. 

Backed by foe cash-rich Co- 
operative Wholesale Society, 
it is following the other big 
chains, including Thomas 
Cook. Pickfords and Lunn 
Poly, . who have launched 
drives lo lift market share by 
increasing their outlets. 

Thomas Cook, foe Midland 
Bank subsidiary, has almost 
400 travel outlets and leads 
the field. Pickfords. part of the 
National Freight Consortium, 
has 280 high street travel 
shops and aims to increase 
their number to 360 in addi- 
tion to expanding the 
PickfoFds business travel out- 
lets. Lunn Poly, part of Thom- 
son Travel, has about 2 1 0 high 
street travel outlets and plans 
substantial increases. 

A.T. Mays, the fost-expand- 
ing Scottish company, also has 
more than 200 outlets and is 
now among foe top six agency 
chains, it is unusual among 
the big chains for being a 
family concern and is headed 
by Mr Jim MoffaL His son Mr 
Jamie Moffat is retail director. 

Mays has more than qua- 
drupled in size since 1983. 

The top 10 agencies account 
for 40 per cent of sales 
compared with less than 15 
per cent 10 years ago. They 
have about 2,000 branches 
which means their strength 
has almost trebled in the 10 
years. 

CWS, which has £2.5 billion 


a year in ales, directly con- 
trols 54 travel outlets and it is 
these which are being re- 
launched under a Co-op 
Travelcare banner. This fol- 
lows a successful experiment 
with a Manchester outlet 
where a Travelcare revamp 
pushed up business 140 per 
cent 

Among foe independent re- 
tail societies there are another 
110 travel outlets, possibly 
half of which may be candi- 
dates for switching to the 
Travelcare banner. 


But the. aim of Mr Mike 
Grindrod. general manager of 
foe CWS Travel Group, is lo 
have 200 Travelcare units 
open by foe end of next year 
with acquisition foe chosen 
route to bring the additional 
100 units into 
operation. 

Now the CWS has derided 
to expand in the travel busi- 
ness it can afford to move 
quickly through acquisition 
and Mr Grindrod indicated 
that it could also expand into 
tour operating. 

Like Lunn Poly, CWS plans 
to stick to high street outlets. 

For chains looking to buy- 
ing regional agency groups as a 
quick route to growth the 
supply is drying up. But small 
independents are showing in- 
creasing signs of weakness as 
lower-priced holidays have 
reduced their earnings 


The Association of British 
Travel Agents (ABTA) has 
just over 2,600 travel agency 
businesses on its books ac- 
counting for 6,000 branches 
but there was a record number 
of collapses last year, with 47 
agents disappearing compared 
with 42 the year before.

John Lister mills 28 tons of pure, 
stone-ground flour eacfa year at 
Shipton Mill, near Tetbury in 
Gloucestershire, and has more than 
doubled his annual turnover since 
starling as a miller in 1982. 

Before that he read anthropology at' ‘ 
Cambridge. Then he and a friend set 

up a painiing-and-dec ora ting busi- 
ness in London, which developed 
into an interior-design firm. It was 
this first successful enterprise that 
enabled him to venture into milling. 

He said: “We were lucky to find 
cheap derelict buildings in an idyllic 
setting within easy reach of the M4, 
and some redundant machinery from 
SpiDers.** In the 1940s factory equip- 
ment, being made to last, was very 
sturdy so though expensive to reno- 
vate, it proved cost-effective to run. 

Mr Lister started milling at a good 
lime. Health-education programmes 
stressing the desirability of the most 
natural foods have continued to 
ensure a demand for his product

back into white all the ingredients 
which they have already spent money 
removing. Thai means- they are 
obliged to charge more for brown 
flour, he says. 

“White flour is sold at a lower price 
than brown, yet the cost of refining it 
is higher. From my point of view, we 
have a cheap site, cheap machinery 
and none of the heavy overheads of 
the large millers, so we can produce

In a year Mr Lister sdis enough

from English to an all-Canadian

them. English flour has a good taste 
but little volume, while the Canadian 
wheat produces volume but not much

reasonable range of flouts, although 
from our point of view the fewer

an Administra- front taking up 


The Reagan Administra- 
tion, in its strongest steel

Mr Clayton Yeuner, the US

Banks raise lending 
to small businesses 

By Richard Thomson, Banking Correspondent 

. Despite increasing competi- particularly attractive, be- 

of ^ h >gh«- risks and 


the big four and their rivals 
stiD have a tendency to move 
at the same time whena new 
idea is gaining momentum. 

Though not strictly new, 
lending to small and medium- 
sized businesses is becoming a 
craze. For sound business 
reasons, the banks are eager to 
join in. 

Three banks announced 
plans this week to upgrade 
their services to small busi- 
ness. 

Lloyds Bank is to double the 
size of its Business Loam 
Scheme — designed for small 
and medium-sized firms — 
committing an extra £500 
million in lending to the 
scheme this year.

network, which was oartlv 15?!?? recent 


network, which was partly 
aimed at giving a more re- 
sponsive and competitive ser- 
vice to local businesses. 

Tbe definition of a small 
business is inevitably hazy, 
but the market is enormous. 

Of the 1.5 million business- 
es on the VAT register, for 
example, 1.44 million have a 
turnover of less than £1 
million a year. These dearly 
count as small or medium- 
sized firms. 

Then there are those so 
small that they fell below the 
£19.500 turnover threshold of 
the VAT register. 

On the fece of it, lending to 
small businesses may not look 


banking initiatives: there are 
potentially huge sums to be 
made in fees and commissions 
by selling related services to 
small businesses. These range 
from payroll services raid 
financial advice to insurance 
and pension planning. 

Banks have, of course, al- 
ways lent to small businesses 
to an extent. Lloyds estimates 
that it has a total exposure of 
about £3 billion. 

But the new interest the 
banks are taking may at last do 
something to dispel the long- 
standing criticism that they do 
not do enough to help the 
country's entrepreneurs and 
small businessmen. 




Return to profits at ENI 




in at its best 


ENI, the Italian state-owned 
oil and chemicals group, has 
returned to profitability after 
five years of losses with a 
record net consolidated group 
profit in 1985 of more than 
800 billion lire (£350 million). 

Losses had risen as high as 
64 billion lire in 1984, more 
than 1,400 billion lire in 1983, 
and 1,500 billion lire in 198Z 
ENI‘s chairman, Senor 
i Franco RevigJio. said in a 
letter to the Government that 
that the three-year recovery

programme had left the group 
with a solid base from which 
to tackle the reorganization 
and concentration being 
forced on oil and chemical 
industries by the changing 
international energy scene. 

The group's oil refining 
division improved its results 
Hast year as a result of severe 
rationalization which im- 
pwed a sharp drop in primary 
refining capacity. Other divi-

On the waterfront: The sea-front promenade and the old harbour of the island's capftal^Dooglas, noir making an unashamed assault on the holiday market 


r There is a small 
factory in the Isle of 
Man making bed- 
room slippers for 
Marks & Spencer. 
In common with 
most of that retail chain’s goods, 
they are labelled “Made in UK” a 
serious and fundamental error cal- 
culated to hurt the Manxman’s 
pride to the very quick. 

Although only 16 miles from the 
nearest point of the Scottish coast 
and 30 miles west of Cumbria, the 
island is not and never has been part 
of the United Kingdom. Its tiny 
independent parliament ofTynwald 
claims to be the oldest legislative 
assembly in the world, founded by 
raiding Vikings in 979AD: it owes 
no allegiance to Westminster, only 
to the British Crown. 

Yet its fortunes are immutably 
tied up with those of Britain and it 
suffers many of the same ills that 
beset the mainland, the chief among 
them being a decade of economic 
depression and an unemployment 
rate now approaching 10 per cent 
Recently there have been painful 
cuts in some social services, such as 
education and libraries, while oth- 
ers have spiralled in {nice. Recent 
reports suggest that the island’s 
■ reserves are down to the equivalent 
of two weeks’ normal government 
Spending. 

Local residents complain of a 
high cost of living, endemic to 
islands that have to pay high 
transport costs. And there are 
anomalies; housewives complain 
that a pound of locally produced 
beef is cheaper in Liverpool than 
Douglas. 

- The return air fare to London 


The optimistic islanders 


Do 


costs £124 (although there is now a 
£20 off-peak single fare to Liver- 
pool) and it costs £84 for a car and 
driver to be ferried to the mainland. 

The theoretical advantage of 
independence is that Man can tackle 
those ills with measures entirely 
tailored to local requirements, al- 
though in truth its record of doing 
so in the past has often been less 
than glittering, progress being beld 
back at least in part by a form of 
govern ment so stable that it ap- 
proached ossification. 

Now, after a millennium and a 
bit, things are beginning to stir on 
the island that bis been unkindly 
described in the past as 65,000 
geriatric alcholics clinging to a- rock 
in the Irish Sea. The Manxmen are ' 
'well enough aware that the- first 
condition for political indepen- ' 
deuce is economic independence. 

To bolster a flagging economy, 
and in the hope of reducing the unit 
costs of its social services, the island 
has since last year been pursuing an 
active but selective “New Resident" 
policy. (The government studiously 
avoids the word “immigrant".) The 
current drive for incomers, or 
“comeovers", is the result of a 
similar policy pursued in the 1960s 
and 1970s after the island popula- 
tion had follen to 4S.500; the \ 
children of those incomers are now 
coming on to the labour market, 
and jobs are scarce. 

Man believes that its existing 
infrastructure will support comfort- 
ably an increase of 10,000 on its 
current population of 65,000. 

Social services and education, 
despite cuts, remain well up to 
mainland standards, and are in . 
many cases better. Five comprehen-

venture abroad to sell its virtues to 
foreign business communities- ... .

seven times greater. And they stress . 
the stability of an island with a 
tranquil life style and a low crime 
rate, although the miscreants are no 
longer required to present their 
posteriors tor receipt of the birch. 

But despite tranquillity, and scen- 
ery lhat could easily be mistaken for 


parts of the Scottish Highlands or. 
rural Wales, it is its position as a tax 
haven that, is the island's biggest 
draw: a flat ra&rrbcome tax of 20per 
cent, and few other taxes of any 
kind, either corporate or personal, 
which serves only to underline the 
voracity of the British Inland 
Revenue, 

Jn tire past the Isle of Man has 
sometimes found itself n^arded as a 
bit of a joke among connoisseurs of 
tax havens. It may have been 
because, until as late at 1979, it still 
had on its statute book a Usury Act 
which restricted interest on all 
borrowed money to a maximum of - 
12.5 percent. ' 

It is largely . to enhance its 
attractiveness as a tax haven, or 
“offshore financial centre" as they 
would rather haveit, lhat foe Isle of 
Man is now contemplating major : 
political reforms. 

There is growing pressure to 
abrogate the common customs 
agreement with the UK, which 
would turn Man into a duty-free 
area and, more important, allow it 
to levy its own rates of VAT to suit 
the local economy. 

Although it is too early to judge 
the success or otherwise: of the new 
resident policy, there is a feeling of 
optimism which its leaders say has ' 
not been present for many . years. 

Finance, the island's largest in- 
dustry, has regained respectability 
aflera major bank crash in 1982 and 
is showing healthy signs of growth, 
shepherded by tough new banking 
rules which, it is claimed, would 
make a Johnson Matthey-style col- 
lapse almost impossible on the 
island. • -

Our top rate of tax for individuals and 
companies alike is 20%, and there's no 
Corporation Tax, no Capital Gains Tax, no 
Wealth or Surtax, and no Estate Duty. 


Our laws grant: important concessions : 
for insurance 'and other financial 
institutions. And we offer industry generous

Man Bank’s bead 


s-domed interior of the Isle of 
in AthoO Street, Douglas' 


When the Isle of Man's Savings and 
Investment Bank failed in 1982, ow ing 
its depositors £422 million, it looked as 
if the island's reputation as an offshore 
financial centre had suffered a wounding 
blow, with permanently damaging con- 
sequences for what has become Man's 
biggest industry. 

The mess left by the coDapse of the 
Savings and Investment Bank (not to be 
confused with the Isle of Man Bank, the 
island’s oldest and now part of Nat 
West) has yet to be satisfactorily cleared 
up- Creditors are still hawifog for an 
acceptable settlement from the liquida- 
tors, and four years alter the event there 
is still no sign of the Manx government’ s 

report into the crash. 

Local politicians disclaim responsibil- 
ity, and say that publication — or 
suppression — is entirely in the hands of 
the Deemster, the bead of the island's 
judiciary. It is difficult to escape the 
condnaon that die report is simply too 
damning an indictment of Man’s for- 
merly lax banking supervision for it ever 
to see the light of day. 

Bat the SIB crash bad its beneficial 
effects. It stirred the island authorities 
into closer supervision of the financia l 
sector, chiefly through the appointment 
of a former Bank of England official, 
Jim Noakes, as bail king inspector, to 
ensure rigid application of the 1975 
Banking Act, together with a colleague 
of similar standing, Duncan NeEL to 
regulate the insurance industry. 

Since Mr Noakes* arrival in 1981, 
several bottom-drawer institutions have 
been frightened off. There has also been 
a virtual moratorium on new banks 
coming to the island; Mr Noakes is 
determined to only let in Institutions of 
the highest standing. A new arrival is 
Scotland's Clydesdale; and Mr Noakes 
would like to see one or two of the most 
prestigious American hanks, to help 
reduce the island’s overwhelming depen- 
dence oo sterling deposits. 


There are 43 licensed basks oo the 
Isle of Man, and seven licensed deposit 
takers. Legislation before Tynwald will 
tgihten tiie banking laws even further 
but will also, for the first time, allow in 
some of the leading UK building 
societies as deposit takers. 

The SIB crash did not, m the event, 
ruin the Manx offshore finance indus- 
try, although the growth in deposits has 
been slightly slower than in the years 
immediately before 1982. At the end of 
September 1985 deposits in Isle of Man 
banks totalled £2,416 million, an in- 
crease of 23 per cent on the previous 

Crash pnt Man on the map 
as an offshore cen tre 

year. Of the total, £365 million, a fairly 
small proportion, was in non-sterling 
deposits. 

Despite die increase, Man lags far 
behind the Channel Islands: deposits in 
Jersey total about £19 billion, mid in 
Guernsey £5 billion. A fair greater 
proportion of Cl deposits is m non- 
sterling currencies, and they are heavily 
involved in the Eurocurrency business 
which Man barely touches. 

Mr Noakes believes there are a 
number of reasons why Man weathered 
the SIB storm. First, the story pnt the is- 
land on the map and brought its name to 
the fore as an offshore centre. Second, 
the authorities acted quickly and deri- 
sively to put their bouse in order. 
Finally, the island’s political stability 
and closeness to the UK is a powerful 
draw for money seeking a safe haven. 

The growth in Manx bank deposits 
partly arises from the feet that money 
left in the bank will grow anyway, from a 
transfer of foods from UK banks 
because of composite rate tax, and from 
a marketing effort by the Manx banking 


community, including sales missions to 
Wall Street 

Three is some uncertainty about what 
the impending Big Bang in the City of 
London will do (0 the offshore money 
markets, but there Is a general confi- 
dence that it will bring benefit rather 

than harm 

“The Big Bang will Increase the 
amount of paper assets available,*’ Mr 
Noakes says. “The range of financial 
prod acts wUi increase, ami more individ- 
.ual$ will get into investment That can 
only be good for the Isle of Man, which 
has also specialized in personal rather 
than corporate finance. . . » 

“A mqjor financial capital like Lon- 
don needs- an. offshore centre.” Mr 
Noakes said. “There are plenty of 
people with perfectly legitimate reasons 
for doing their business offshore. 

“A non-British national may want to 
deal with London without rendering 
himself liable to British taxation. Far 
from taking money away from the UK. 
offshore centres put a great deal of 
reinvestment business into London that 
it would uot otherwise get.” 

The Manx banking community is 
confident that it will continue to grow, 
especially if it can reduce Its dependence 
on sterling deposits and attract more 
international business. The occasional 
American voice is already to be heard in 
the bars of Douglas complaining about 
the hotel accomodation. 

The financial infrastructure is well 
established, with most of the leading 
investment and accountancy houses 
present on the island. Tbe latest arrival 
is Arthur Andersen, the world's largest 
firm of chartered accountants. 

But Mr Noakes, of all people, is well 
aware that the waters of offshore finance 
can be particularly shark-infested to the 
unwary. “Deal with the- established 
names; don't go . looking through the 
hack pages of Exchange and Mart for 
the fly. boys” is his heartfelt advice.

Since last year the Isle of Man 
has been bidding in the world 
shipping market for flag-of- 
convemence business against 
the established competition of 
Liberia. Panama and Hong 
Kong. 

After lengthy negotiations 
with the Department ofTrade, 
it was allowed to establish its 
own shipping register, but 
only under stringent condi- 
tions. Ships must essentially 
be British-owned,- all senior 
officers must hold British or 
Commonwealth mariners' pa- 
pers, and survey and registra- 
tion requirements must be np 
to British standards. 

When the Manx register was 
first proposed the National 
Union of Seamen voiced fears 


of low standards and danger- 
ous conditions for crews. 

There are now 41 merchant 
ships with a total gross regis- 
tered tonnage of 144,233 
tonnes registered in Man. 

For the shipowner, Manx 
registration confers tax advan- 
tages on his company and 
'prater respectability than 
similar operations. - 

There is also a substantial 
Manx-based ship manage- 
ment business, looking after 
the running of vessels of all 
flags, again for reasons of tax 
advantage. The Douglas office 
at WaUems — a Hong Kong- 
based management company 
—and Denholm are the major 
concerns competing for this 
business on Man. 


An Isle of Man insurance 
exchange handling the mega- 
risk business, which recently 
proved the undoing of some 
Lloyd's syndicates, is the goal 
of Duncan Neil, the Manx 
government's insurance in- 
spector. He was appointed in 
1983 to keep the more dubi- 
ous operators onl of the 
island's now-flourishing off- 
shore insurance industry. 

The recent Shuttle disaster 
has concentrated the minds of 
the mega-risk market; up to 
one-third of a space shot 
launch cost can be in insur- 
ance premiums. The London 
market, with its traditional 
one-year cycle of profit — or 
Joss — taking, is not best 
equipped to deal with it, Mr 
Neil believes. He sees scope 
for a Manx equivalent of 
[Lloyd's taking the longsbot 
•risks on a five or even ten-year 
profit taking cycle, to enable a 
healthier build-up of reserves. 

Meanwhile, last year saw 
considerable growth in the 
more traditional offshore in- 
surance market on the Isle of 
Man, with 39 licensed insur- 
ance companies, including 26 
highly specialized “captives” 
and eight life offices, now 
operating on the island. 

Man passed a tax exemp- 
tion law to encourage the 
business in 1981, but only 
since insurance rates world- 
wide have hardened in the last 
year have companies flocked 
to lake advantage of it 

New law before Tynwald 
will tighten up and formalize 
the conditions Mr Neil im- 
poses on all new applicants.

A wealth of property on the books 


Ten years ago Manx estate 
agents put load bouse prices 
on a par with the affluent 
south-east of England. Now 
the comparison is with the 
North-west, an indication of 
the stagnation of the island's 
economy in general and the 
property market in particular. 

While average mainland 
bouse prices rose by 8 per cent 
last year, Manx prices showed 
only a I per cent rise. In recent 
months there have been more 
hopeful signs of activity, espe- 
cially at the top end of die 
market. But the island's agents 
have a wealth of property in 
all sectors on their books. 

The all-time record for a 
private house sale is £305,000, 
paid last year for an elegant 
five-bedroom Georgia n-style 
residence in 20 acres of mag- 


nificent garden, five miles 
from Douglas. That may soon 
be exceeded by a luxurious 
modern property expected to 
come on the market at 
£800.000. But that includes 
100 acres of farmland which a 
buyer might be able to sell to 
recoup some of his outlay. 

There has been little new 
building in recent years. A rare 
executive housing develop- 
ment now being built is at 
Howstrake Heights, on an 
elevated site above Douglas 
Bay, where a maximum of 75 
detached houses of high speci- 
fication will sell for between 
£93,000 and £106,000 - ex- 
pensive by Manx standards. 

To lake more prosaic exam- 
ples, ail from the books of 
local agents Chryslals Stoll 
Kerruish: £25,000 will buy a 


modernized four-bedroom 
terraced house in Douglas, or 
a two-bedroom bungalow; 
£30.000 will buy a three- 
bedroom semi; £50,000 a five- 
bedroom chalet bungalow on 
the outskirts of town; £75,000 
a converted school with four 
bedrooms in a scenic location 
at Laxey; and £1 10,000 a five- 
bedroom period country 
house in fouraqns on the edge 
of Ramsey. . 

Bungalows are in plentiful 
supply — an added advantage 
is the absence of stamp duty. 
Mortgages up to £19,500 are 
available at 1 1 per cent from 
the Government to first-time 
buyers. 

UK. building societies do 
not operate on the island but 
mortgages are available from 
local hanks at UK rates.

A change in the political style 



When you consider what we have to offer, our financial success 
story is no surprise. Though geographically part of the British 
Isles, we have our own parliament and make our own laws. 

. Our. independent spirit is reflected in our liberal tax laws.'Our 
.. top rate of tax for individuals and companies alike is a mere 
• ’ 20%, and there’s no Corporation Tax, no Capital Gains Tax, no 
Wealth or Surtax, arid no Estate Duty. WeVe even passed special 
legislation to enable insurance companies to retain underwriting 
profits arising from insurance risks outside the Island. 

As you would expect, communications with, the outside world 
are excellent. Regular so minute flights connect us to London's 
Heathrow Airport and we have links with regional airports in 
the UK arid Eire. Our postal and telecommunications 
network matches international standards, 

. We're a natural haven in the literal sense too. We boast a superb 
eriyironinent which offers unlimited scope for outdoor leisure 
• activitiesi arid a way-of-Iife that emphasises traditional 
values of fnendliiiess and independence. -

Tynwald as a whole and the 
council chairman has, there- 
fore, virtually no’ say in its 
composition. 

Under the new system the 
chairman will be able to 
choose who will head the 
government departments. 

“This new system is intend- 
ed to achieve some forward- 
looking policy for which you 
need a certain amount of 
cohesion,” Dr Mann said “At 
present, there being no parties, 
every member makes his deri- 
sions on a personal basis. 
There has been a tendency 
simply to shelve important 
decisions.” 

But Tynwald is a tiny 
parliament, with only 24 
members of the House ofKeys 
and eight members of the 
upper house. It therefore fol- 
lows that once a Cabinet is 
appointed its members will 


comprise nearly one third of 
the entire assembly. And 
therein may He the seeds of the 
island's first opposition. 

“I have always felt that the i 
more executive power you 
give to a group, the more 
counterbalanced power you 
must give to an opposition. As 
we have at present no opposi- 
tion as such, I can only assume 
that some kind of loosety- 
formed opposition is likely to 
emerge out of those not select- 
ed for the Cabinet,” Dr Mann 
said. 

“This is a very significant 
change. Under the new system 
those appointed will each do 
one job and they will cany foil 
responsibility for iL A minis- 
ter will come under great 
pressure from his own sector 
or industry and from the 
public at large if he is not 
performing well.”

FOCUS 


Taking a firm 
line on 


the telephone 


r When, late 
last year, Brit- 
ish Telecom 
submined its 
bid for the li- 
cence to run 
the island’s phone system, it 
promised to turn the Isle of 
Man into a world showpiece 
of telecommunications. Now 
that its tender has been suc- 
cessful it is up to the islanders 
to ensure the promise is kept. 

They have a sporting chance 
of success, as under the new 
contract the island will have 
considerable autonomy. • 

BT and its predecessor, the 
British Post Office, have run 
the Manx telephones since 
1912. But when Westminster 
passed the legislation for the 
privatization of BT, Tynwald 
passed parallel legislation en- 
abling it to put die island's 
phone contract to tender. 


60,000 outgoing 
calls a day 


ship - 25,000 subscribers in a 
population of 65,000 - is not 
greatly different from the 
mainland, but they are heavily 
used. The island's 11 ex- 
changes handle 60.000 outgo- 
ing calls a day and the Douglas 
banks and finance bouses are 
heavy users of ST’S range of 
dam transmission services. 

BT has committed itself to 
£34m worth of new invest- 
ment on the island during the 
20-year period of its licence. 
Promised improvements in- 
clude the replacement of all 
inter-exchange cables with op- 
tical fibre; the laying of an 
optical fibre cable to the 
mainland; the digitalization of 
all exchange equipment by 
1990 — 10 years ahead of the 
UK - and possibly even by 
1988; new payphones 
throughout the island; and the 
building of the island's own 
satellite earth station.

Love, hate and Mr Gubay 


Cable and Wireless entered a 
rival but ultimately unsuccess- 
ful bid, despite intensive lob- 
bying and promotion. 

Now that BT has been 
granted a 20-year licence it 
intends to activate a wholly- 
owned subsidiary. Manx 
Telecom Ltd. kept in reserve 
for : that eventuality. Manx 
Telecom is to operate inde- 
pendently of its giant British 
parent, the world's fifth largest 
telecommunications under- 
taking. with a Manx chairman 
and Manx board members. 

Manx Telecom will pay an 
initial licence fee of £7.3m to 
the island government and 
£250,000 a year thereafter. But 
it hopes that the Government 
will lake equity in the compa- 
ny and, in due course, oner 
shares to the public. 

There are already 2,200 BT 
shareholders in the Isle of 
Man which, even allowing for 
a certain number of accom- 
modation addresses, is more 
per bead than in the UK. 

The main advantage to the 
island in having its own quasi- 
independent telephone com- 
pany is that it will be able to 
set its own chaiges to take 
account of local conditions. 
The density of phone owner- 


Many of the promised im- 
provements are already under

customers' lines are connected 
to electronic exchanges, com- 
pared with less than 60 per ;

payphones have been replaced i

done Mr Gubay a great deal of 
personal harm. Gad in old 
donkey jacket and navvy's 
wellies caked in mud and 
cement he was plunging 
about a building site directing 
a.£aag on ibe erection of .-a 
private residence of majestic 
and almost tasteful opulence. 

Mr Gubay is not a foli-thne 
site foreman. He is a Welsh 
grocery millionaire who made 
a fortune from a chain of 
supermarkets; the house, in a 
sequestered ddl near Douglas, 
was for himself. In what might 
have become its front garden 
under a less dynamic owner, a 
ponderous ballet of JCBs was 
sculpting his own private 
nine-hole golf course. . 

Mr Gnbay and the Isle of 
Man government live in an 
agreed state of amiable .mutu- 
al hostility. He regards them 
as slow, backward and indeci- 
sive; they look on him as a 
headstrong, impatient, loud 
nuisance, a kind of entrepre- 
neurial wasp. 

“There are no political par- 
ties here, so everybody has his 
axe to grind. It takes them 
forever to do anything, and 
when they do it's always the 


wrong thing. I offered re build 
their freeport for them; they 
could have had it running by 
now. But they chose to jump 
into bed with some other 
developer (British Land, in 
fact) and look where it's got 
them; they haven't built a 
thing yet-” 

The Government plainly 
does not want Mr Gubay to 
build its freeport, and private- 
ly resents the method of his 
approach, which it regards as 
bordering ori the underhand. 


“Look at them now, fretting 
about whether they should go 
duty-free. I told them they 
should have done it years ago: 
just look at the Channel 
Islands, how well they've 
done. But it’s taken this lot 
years to make up their minds. 
Meanwhile they just sh back 


and watch their unemploy- 
ment grow. Look, I offer a 


ment grow. Look, I offer a 
prize, a grant, trail it what you 
like, of up to £50,000 every 
year to anyone starting a new 
business here. How much 
have 1 been able to give away 
this yeatT

body re get up and go,* AG. 
of course has Ihniftess reser- 
voirs of get up atm go. One 
-almost expects bis energy to 
flow from the waterfall being 
constructed of giant boulders 
beside his bouse. His current 
enterprises in the Isle of Mao 
intiude a property company, a 
merchant bank, and the 
island’s first commercial safe 
deposit. 

Btrt despite his fulptinations 
against a government which 
steadfastly refuses to travel 
A-G's nod of unbridled capi- 
talism, he loves tire place. 

“Even if there were no tax at 
all in the UK now; } would 
never go back to live there. 
Here there is no mugging, no 
crime, and few' burglaries; it's 
the greatest place in Europe 
for old folk. Schools and 
hospitals are not crowded; I 


don't know of a better place to 
live, and I can’t understand 
why it isn't bursting at the 
seams. 


He turned to his accountant 
who had been hovering near- 
by in a sharp blue suit and 
camel-hair coat, thoroughly 
outre on a building site. 
“£16,000, A.G”, said the ac- 
countant who appeared to 
have picked up the etiquette of 
how to address the boss from 
Reggie Perrin. 


“There you are,'"- said A.G. 


' A.G. stomped off* in his 
wellies to see to a delivery of 
building materials and to sur- 
vey progress on his golf 
course. U was only a par 27, 
but unlike any course in the 
Channel Islands, and many a 
course in the Home Counties, 
there was no hole from which 
you could drive a ball into 
anyone ehe’s garden. The Isle 
of Man is still big enough and 
emptv enough to contain even 
the lilces of A G.

thatyear, of the Isle of Man

jp» Readers or 
Ihe Sunday 
colour supple- 
<K merits will 

have noticed a 
9 recent spate of 

double-page spreads promot- 
ing the holiday delights of the 
Isle of Man. They are part of a 
determined effort by the is- 
land to shake off its proletar- 
ian image and to make an 
unashamed assault on the 
upper end of the market. 

In the 1920s. when the 
Wakes Weeks brought tidal 
waves of couon workers from 
the industrial stews of Lanca- 
shire. the island virtually lived 
off its summer tourist boom. 
Those days are no more. 

Numbers are still frilling as 
the many For Sale boards 
outside defunct Douglas 
boarding houses testify. In the 


summer of 1975 there were 
564,61 1 passenger arrivals on 
the island: by the same period 
last year they had fallen to 
351.000. 

In 1975 there were 1.028 
hotels and guest houses: now 
there are 717. Numbers of 
available beds have shrunk in 
that period from 13.928 to 
1 1.143. Even. the Tourist Tro- 
phy races, still the major single 
event in .the Manx holiday 
calendar, are not the draw 
they were; an attendance of 

79.000 in 1978 had fallen to 

41.000 last year. 

Bui tourism is still the third 
largest industry after financial 
services and manufacturing 
and it remains a major plank 
in the economy. The growth of 
the financial sector has 
brought a different kind of 
visitor, with more money on 


his credit card and by no 
.means confined to the sum- 
„mer months. 

Surprisingly, tourist reve- 
nue has more than managed to 
keep pace with inflation: £12.5 
million in 1975-76. £17.5 mil- 
lion in 1980-81 and £21.3 
million in 1 983-84. 

Despite its considerable sce- 
nic attractions and its unhur- 
ried air. the island has in many 
ways been lucky to sustain a 
tourist business. Only one new 
hotel has been built during the 
past 24 years, ihe Cherry 
Orchard at Port Erin opened 
in 1984. The hugest hotel, the 
Palace in Douglas, has recent- 
ly been refurbished, but the 
genera! Manx hotel standard 
.is likely to disappoint. 

One old hotel, the famous 
Golf Links at Castletown, has 
recently fallen into new hands. 


and there are hopes that an 
extensive improvement pro- 
gramme will bring it up to 
acceptable international stan- 
dards. 

Last year the Manx govern- 
ment introduced compulsory 
grading for all hotels and guest 
houses: only one, the Cherry, 
Orchard, achieves the top 
grade of five keys. There are 
complaints locally that the 
scheme should have been 
introduced years ago, but a 
defensive Tourist Board, 
points out that it is still one 
step ahead of the UK. 

The island fares rather bet- 
ter with its restaurants. There 
is a large and varied selection, 
many of high standard, and 
two. La Rosette at Ballasalla 
and Boncompte in Douglas, 
have made it to the pages of 
Egon Ronay. 



Angels make a mint 


make the shipping costs 
worthwhile. It has already had 
considerable success in at- 
tracting new enterprises; in- 
dustry now creates 15 percent 
of the island's wealth, the 
largest contributor after the 
financial sector. 

Several incoming ‘compa-

Now that the once popular

base and tainted coin because 
of its South African origin, the 
Maas treasury is hoping rtwt 
those small investors who like 
to play the ballioa market will 
come down instead on the side 
of the Angels. 

The Angel was a medieval 
gold coin which Gist appeared 
in Etogfand from France in 
1465 and disappeared again 
around I636.lt was revived by 
the Isle of Man last year, 
showing the standard profile 
of the Queen on the obverse 
and the sun medieval theme 
of ' the Archangel Michael 
staying a dragon on the re- 
verse. 

Strode by the Pobjoy Mint 
in England from one ounce of 
22-carat gold, the Angel is 
legal tender in Man with a 
nominal face value of £5. But 
not many of them will be - 
passing across the bar 
counters of Douglas in pay- 
ment far a round of drinks; at 
cmrent gold price s each Angel 
costs about £273. Giving them 
a face value is simply to enable 
them to be sold as corns rather 
than medallions. 

Early reports suggest that 
the Angel is selling well. 


boosted by its becoming avail- 
able recently in the UK 'and 
Europe. In the hope that it will 
eat into traditional kr ug e r ran d 
markets, the sales literature 
points oat that it is struck in 
gold “from European 
sources". 

At a recent American exhi- 
bition of the coin mister's art, 
the Angel won joint first prize 
in its design dass against 
worldwide competition. 

Now a whole family of 
Angels is being produced, fa 
sizes from one-tenth of an 
ounce op to' 10 ounces. T&e

In 1983 the Isle of Man

legal tender coin anywhere in 
the world for 150 years, and 
that is stfll the case. The 
Noble, like dm Angel, Is of 
medieval origin and its Manx 
revival in the ooe-oonce size 
has a nominal face value of 
£10, with a Viking kingship on 
die reverse of the Queen’s

Despite the relative volatili- 
ty of the bullion price, more 
than £50 million worth of 
Nobles have been sold so Car.

CRICKET: ENGLAND UNDER-PREPARED FOR THEIR ORDEAL BY PACE IN JAMAICA

Only a few months after 
■onvineingly regaining the 
tshes, England enter the first 
Test match against West In- 
ties at Sabina Park here today 
s rank outsiders. Such is the 
night and the supremacy of 
Vest Indian fast bowling. 
There have been other En- 
iand tours to the Caribbean 
/hen the form of the team 
efore the start of the Test 
=ries has been little better 
ian this one of Gower’s. In 
959-60 Peter May's had just 
>st by 10 wickets to Barbados 
hen they scored 482 in the 
rst Test at Bridgetown; in 
967-68 Colin Cowdrey’s were 
utplayed by Trinidad before 
laking 568 in the first Test at 
ort-of-Spain. 

In those days West Indies 
ad not developed their 
resent formula for winning 
est matches. They played not 
»ur very fast bowlers but only 
vo which meant that on the 
rst of these occasions they 
)w!ed 105 overs of spin and 
i the second 130. Since the 
iddle 1970s. they have con- 
•mraied remorselessly and 
ith unprecedented success 
i speed. 

In batting terms, there 
ould not be a lot to choose 
•tween today’s sides if 
atling were playing. England 
juld expea to make as many 
ns against their own attack 
West Indies wilL and West 
dies no more against Mar- 
ail and company than En- 
ind are likely to. To put it 
other way, even Richards is 
own to be thankful that he 
not going to have to spend 
? next two months dodging 
d ducking his own attack. 


It is not only the weight of 
fast bowling which Richards 
has at his command that is so 
forbidding, but its quality 
also. West Indies could rapid 
up four fast bowlers, besides 
those playing today, who 
might be more dangerous than 
any of England's. The West 
Indian newcomer, Patterson, 
looked twice the bowler in 
Tuesday's one-day interna- 
tional in the' company of 
Walsh, Marshall and Garner, 
than when he struggled to take 
wickets for Lancashire last 
season. When things are going 
well for them, they bring the 
best out of each other. 

Since adopting their present 
strategy, based on all-out 
speed. West Indies have not 
been beaten at home. Far 
more often than not they have 
won with the greatest of ease. 
If England were to change this 
trend now, without Gatting 
and with Botham less than 
fully fit, it would be one of the 
game's great turn-ups. 

They will be tempted to 
stuff their side with all the 
batting they have got, at the 
expense of the bowling, in the 
hope of getting away with a 
draw; but to do so would, l 
think, be a tactical mistake. 
On a pitch which is not 
completely flat (though it has 
been given 24 hours' rolling 
since Tuesday) and in parts is 
still quite well grassed. West 
Indies will not necessarily 
make all the runs they want 
While it would be a relief to be 
able to move on to Trinidad 
next Thursday without defeat 
or further injury, the chances 
of England winning a low- 
scoring match, should they be 



Bothammot yet faBy fit 


57, 


able to maintain an attack, are 
not to be entirely discounted. 

We must expea more 
bouncers than in the one-day 
.international, when each one 
was bowled at the risk of 
getting called a no-ball, and 
little that has been seen so far 
has suggested that the urapir- 
wift not cause a good deal 
suffering of one land or 
another. In recent Kingston 
Test matches much too little 
has been done to protect the 
batsmen. New Zealand and 
West Indies waged a ferocious 
match here a year ago, in 
which Coney had his arm 
broken; the year before that 
Hogg was allowed to bowl 12 
bouncers in two overs against 
the West Indian opening bats- 
men in retaliation for what 
Marshall and Gamer had 
done to Australia. It was also 
here 10 years ago, that three 
Indian batsmen, Gaekwad, 
Viswanath and Patel, were so. 


badly hurt as to be able to take 
no further part in the match. 
When asked yesterday wheth- 
er be would be advising his 
bowlers to go easy on the short 
stuff Richards replied: "No, 
that's up to the guys in the 
white coats." 

This must be the first Test 
match for many years of 
which there will be no live 
television coverage. The terms 
on offer seemed perfectly rear 
sonable, and the loss wifi be 
felt more by cricket followers 
in coldest England than view- 
ers in West Indies, where local 
outside broadcasts are seldom 
scheduled

Kunmegala, Sri i^nira (Ren-

143 between the captain von

the Sri Lanka Colts XI to a 
useful score on the second day of

Colts were 248 for five off 77

TENNIS 


tattle of giants under the setting sun 


From Richard Evans, Boca Raton 


deep-seated defiance in 
my Connors enables him to 
tec kind of match that took 
■ into the semi-finals of the 
ion International Players 
unpionships here. It was the 
. match of the tournament so 
and it left Yannick Noah in 
jair. The score said that 
uxors was the winner by 5-7, 
7-6. 6-4,but another set of 
isiics would make it difficult 
anyone to believe that Noah 
lost. 

he big Frenchman served no 
than 30 aces,while Connors 
not produced one until, 
t supreme irony, heserved 
ice against Noah on the very 
point of the match. More 
edibly, Noah held brcak- 
it on Connors's serve 26 
ss and yet he only converted 
-e- of them and one of those 
a double faulL 
! have never missed so many 
ortunilies in my life" Noah 
. with a dazed expression on 
face after this strengtb- 
jnig three hour forty five 
ule battle that left both men 
ring mentally and physically 


drained. “1 bad sc many break- 
points; so many it was just 
incredible". 

Even though Noah felt he had 
lost the timing of his top-spin 
forehand, it was the 
Frenchman's backhand that 
Connors pressured incessantly 
on those break-points; contin- 
ually coming up with well- 
angled serves which gave him a 
chance to puO Noah wide and 
force yet another error at a 
crucial moment. 

Some of the tennis was - 
breathtaking, and as the sun 
sank away to offer us a sunset as - 
colourful as the drama taking 
place on court, a large crowd of 
some 8.000 became more and 
more involved in the match. 

Nothing could detract from 
the excellence of Connors's play 
whenever he was cornered, but, 
nevertheless. Noah received the 
worst of some very bad line 
calls. Boca West is owned by 
. Arvida, a Disney company, and - 
there were moments when one 
wondered whether it was 
Mickey Mouse or Goofy calling 
the lines. 


It was only four games after 
Noah had appealed for an over- 
rule without success that Con- 
nors served what appeared to be 
a second consecutive double 
fault at 30-40. The score stood 
five all in the third set and the 
point would have left Noah 
serving for a two set to one lead. 
But although the serve landed at 
least two inches long right under 
the umpire's nose, the official 
refused to over- rule his lines- 
man as Noah stormed towards 
the chair, throwing down his 
racket and demanding the ref- 
eree. 

That request was refused, too, 
and be did weQ to collect his 
wits in time to take the set into 
the lie- break. But once again 
Noah let his chances slip away 
when he held two set points 

Even when Connors served 
for the match, Noah readied 1 5- 
40 but, like a terrier with the ball 
extrordinary competitor shook 
himself free and simply refused 
to let go. 

The 33-year-old American 
wasa late entry here, saying that 


be needed match practice. Now, 
after a series of tough matches, 
he has got more than he 
bargained for and with two 
strapped ankles and an aching 
body one only hopes be will be 
fit for tomorrow’s semi- final. 

It was a day of lost opportu- 
nities for France. Guy Forger 
played the best tennis of his 
career to lead Mats Wi lander by 
a set and 4-2 before the Swede 
started to settle into a rhythm on 
his serve and lake greater care 
with his passing shots. As Forget 
began to tire W t land er seized 
control and won 5-7, 6-4, 6-4, 6 -. 

Last year at the inaugural 
Upton event Tim Mayotte and 
Scott Davis emerged as two 
unlikely finalists. It says much 
for the seriousness with which 
the senior players are viewing 
these championships now that 
four of the worlds top six - Ivan 
Lendl, who meets Connors, and 
Wilander. who takes on a fellow 
Swede Stefan Edberg - have 
fought their way through the 1 28 
man draw to contest the semi- 
finals

depressing defeat in their last 
world championship group game 
against Switzerland at Leicester

is patting many Americans play- 
ing here in the shade, jnst as 
they could have done with him 
last November when they lost to 
Czechoslovakia and Israel, also 
ia the world championships. 

Clark’s contribntioa helped 
Kingston to the second highest 
score recoded by a dab in the 
National League. Kingston's 
161-111 win against Solent has 
been beaten only by Crystal 
Palace, who scored 165 against 
VauxhaU ia 1977. 

For Solent, who had lost the

Efficient 
Yates 
steps up to 
conquer 

From A Correspondent 
Mulhdm, West Germany 

Overcoming Finland and 
Norway 5-0 here yesterday 
means England need only to 
beat Wales to reach the last four 
of the European zone of the 
Thomas Cup work) - team 
champi o nship*. Three teams go 

through to the finals in Jakarta 

in April and May. 

Nick Yates, chosen by the 
new manager, Jake Downey, at 
number one in the absence of 
theflu victim Steve Baddeley 
and in preference to the new 
national champion, Darren Fall, 

typified the English efficiency 
on this occasion. 

The 24-year-old Londoner 
conceded only four points to the 

Finland number one Toni 
Tuominen, who the day before 
beat Phil Sutton, the Welsh 
number one making his way 
bade after injury. It was Sutton 
who put Yates out of the fast 


ivdy minor variations 
in performance can cause 
spectacular disparities in results. 
A bored looking world number 
one Morten Frost discovered 
this and at the same time caused 
some excited squeals by going 2 - 

10 down in the second game to 
Eddie van Herbruggen, a 21- 
year-old 6 ft 4in private in the 
Hrigium army who might do 
well to consider going to live 
and play badminton in the great 
centre of Copenhagen when be 
is discharged. 

Frost eventually awoke to win 
15-1, 15-11 and Denmark beat 
Belgium 5-0, whilst the Danish 
women have occupied a mere 
three hours and 10 minutes in 
winning two matches — 
shorter time than their warm-op 
sessioos bad been taking. 

This rather supports the 
.contention of several leading 
coaches and man agers the 
; formal of the European zone 
, should be altered to bring in the 
-eight stronger nations at a later 
stage in the week. The Inter- 
national Badminton Federation 
is apparently to discuss the 
matter. 

Denmark’s other number 
one, Kirsten Larsen, the English 
Masters Champion, has yet to 
be used, whilst the' English 
counterparts Helen Troke and 
I Sieve Baddeley were due to fly 
in and bolster the squads yes- 
terday, fortified with the news 
about the entries for next 
month's All England champion- 
ships at Wembley. For the first 
time in four years the leading 
Chinese men and women are 
not participating, preferring to 
concentrate on preparations for 
the Thomas and Uber Clip 
finals. 

That means Troke, the Euro- 
pean champion, has. a real 
chance of becoming England 1 
first singles winner since Gil 
Gilks in 1978 while Baddeley - 
along with Yates. Butler and 
Hall — have prospects ofbecom- 
ing a home country's first men's 
angles semi- finalists since 1939.

IN BRIEF 

New York (Reuter) - The 
United States Football League 
fUSFL) will resume action next 
autumn in direct competition 
with the more established Na- 
tional Football League (NFL). 
Since its inception the USFL has 
never scheduled games at the 
the same time of year as the 
NFL and last year their amen- 
can football season was sus- 
pended. 

Yesterday's announcement 
by the USFL commissioner, 
Harry Usher, made ft dear that 
previous reports that file USFL 
was on the verge of suspend] 
operations until the autumn 
1987 were Unfounded- 
According to Usher, the league 
win field eight teams next 
autumn and itb will apparently 
continue to pursue its SI. 32 
billion federal ami-trust suit 
tinst the NFL 

TRIALS: The new 
director of the Bmghley horse 
trials will be Bill Henson, a 
Lincolnshire farmer. Henson, 
aged- 52, who succeeds Charles 
Stratton, rode four times at 
Badminton during the 1950s 
and also competed once at

Cavan sees UEFA lifting 
ban on English dubs 



Harry Cavan, senior FIFA 
vic e -pr e sident, belfages foot the 
baa on English dabs competing 
in Europe wiD be lifted at the 
UEFA congress ia Lisboa in 
Aprfl. “There is already a strong 
lobby for tire ban to be lifted, not 
because they fare you bat far 
fin a ncial reasons" Mr Cavan 
told a football writers’ brack in 
Ma nchester ye st erday . 

Mr Cavan that the 

repeat outbreak of hoo MgnHhro , 
fariadhig the aerosol attack oa 
the Manchester United team at 
Anfidd two weeks ago made him . 
“apprehensive” about the pros- 
pects, fat he added: “I think 
everybody is now satisfied that 
there was perhaps aa over- 
reaction when the ban was 
imposed. 

“I believe we should be hi 
Earope neatt year. After all at the 
end of the sky it was not the 
owners of the Heysel Stadram or ' 
Liverpool Football Club, it was 


By Peter Ball ~ 

tl» spectators who van amok bro. 
it was Liverpool PC who were 
penalised." 

Mr Cavan acce p ted that dabs 
would hare in exercise control 

over their supporters if they do 
retain to Europe, but be re- 
iterated his bebef that govern- 
ments also most accept their 
responsibilities. He pointed oat 
that although they signed that 
they were imaMe to withdraw 
passports becanse of the 
infringements on personal fib-, 
erty. they had “no hesitation ' 
about stopping nrinera 1 pickets".

Mr Cavan agreed that tee 24 '

Villa’s assets are frozen 
by the winter weather 


By Strait Jones 


Football Correspoodect 


The icy grip of winter, which 
again threatens to cut deep into 
the weekend programme, is 
freezing the assets of even the 
biggest dubs. Aston Villa, for 
intMTir^ have revealed that the 
postponement of their fixture 
a gains t West Ham United on 
February 8 cost them “£67,500 
and something", according to 
tbeir commercial manager, 
Tony Stephens. 

The match, which was heavily 
sponsored by local businesses 
and individuals, would have 
been beamed live on television 
to a number of countries in 
Europe and around the world. 
Villa lost not only these rev- 
enues. but also the gate receipts 
from potentially one of their 
entertaining more home games. 

The dub that regularly air 
tracted crowds of some 32,000 
to Villa Park five years ago can 
now no longer nave realistic 
expectations of drawing half 
that figure. Their average, gate, 
lifted predictably by the visits of 
Manchester United (27,626), 
Everton (22,048) and Liverpool 
(20,197), has fallen to below 


against Oxford. If they go 
through to the final at Wembley 
on April 20, their share of the 
receipts and the prize-money 
from the competition’s sponsors 
will guarantee them a financial 
reward of at least £250,000. 

If' not, they will collect 
£32.000 - the compensation for 
losing semi-finalists — and their 
one remaining target wifi be tb 
avoid, relegation from tee first 
division during a programme 
that is likdy to embrace 14 
fixtures in eight weeks. 

Villa's form does not- : lend 
itself to optimism. They have 
won only twice at home, against 
Luton Town in August and 
against Oxford United in 
November, and have sunk to 
20th place above their Midland 
neighbours. West Bromwich Al- 
bion and Birmingham City, one 
of the seven relatively unattrac- 
tive guests they have yet to 
receive in Canon League 
matches at Villa Park. 

Stephens is aware that Villa 
are in danger oT following the 
path, that was taken by Norwich 
City and Sunderland last season. . 


15,000 so far this season. . _ After reaching the final of the 

Their fast attendance, for the Milk Cup, both of teem subr 


oalless draw against sequenlly dropped down into 

tee second division. "That 
would be a significant financial 
blow", he admitted, "but not an 
insuimountabie one**. 

_ “If we had the choice, we 

another i'onniyiv. .-xropt for the. would rather miss ont on Wem- 
first leg of the fc'.ik Cup semi- biey and stay up. The knock-on 
fioaT against Oxford J nt ted. cfffect of playiD& ^ Iikes of 
which is scheduled for next Shrewsbury rather than. Man- 
Tuesday. - tester United would be severe. 

Villa's season, and perhaps 


goalless draw against 
Southampton three weeks ago, 
amounted to a mere 8,456, their 
lowest for 29 years. The turn- 
stiles teat are rapidly gathering 
rust may not move again for 


son. But we no longer so 
severely in debt. - 

"Three years ago. . before 
Doug Ellis returned as chair- 
man, it was estimated teat we 
were £2 million in the red. Thai 
has since been reduced to about 
£500,000 and teat does not 
include the value of our players 
or oiir ground. We have -had to 
cut our doth and, although our 
playing staff has noi been 
- substantially cut. : we - have in- 
vested heavily in youth./*' 

"Our crowds may be dis- 
-appeumkp. but we are witoin 
stinking distance of the figure we 
need to break even. I'm sure that 
the supporters wifi come back, if 
not in the numbers that were 
here when we were winning the 
title and ter European Cup. I 
think those days may have gone 
for good. For example, we are 
■expecting only 9,500 for 
Ipswich.” 

The prospects of tee game 
being staged tomorrow are not 
bright. Villa's next home 
appearance is nlamied.for Sat- 
urday, March 8 , against Arsenal 
but teal depends on tee fate of 
their opponents in their FA Cup 
fifth round replay a gainst Luton 
Town, which is scheduled to 
take place at Highbury' the 
previous Monday. 

If Arsenal win,, as expected, 
they will be playing either 
Tottenham Hotspur or Everton 
in the sixth round on the 
following Saturday. Villa will 
again be idle. -That wifi mean 
-effectively that tee dub will 
have received no gate receipts 
for a Canon fixture for 

six weeks. Stephens conceded 


;r« 


. .. . I don't . imagine that our _ 

their immediate future, hinges commercial profits would reach . that “you could tov-we misht 
on the outcome of the two ties- £800,000. as they did last sea- " then have a cash flow problem". 

Move to end discipline anomalies 


The Football Association are 
planning to reform their disci- 
plinary procedures in order to 
end the anomalies affecting 
many clubs at tee highest levels 
of non-League fooibaiL Under a 
proposal which seems likely to 
be adopted, disciplinary meth- 
ods will be bandied aconding to 
dubs' league status rather than 
whether they are full or associate 
members of tee FA. 

Under the current system, the 
national organization deals with 
players from dubs in frill 
membership, whereas those 
from associate member dubs 
come under tee jurisdiction of 
county associations, who tend to 
be more severe in their punish- 
ments. 

The counties, who discipline 
players for a specified period of 
time, frequently impose suspen- 
sions of up to.four weeks (which 
could mean eight or. more, 
games) on players who are sent 
off The national FA have a two- 
tier system. When dealing with 
dubs from the Cola Lea gu e. 
Multipart League; Vanxhall- 
Opd premier division and 
Southern premier division, they 
use the same points totting-up 
procedure as for Canon League 
dubs and players are rarely _ 
banned for more than one or 
two games; when handling other 
full member dubs, the FA use a 
system similar to tee counties’. 

These anomalies have .meant 
that players from different dubs 
sent off m the same match may 
be given substantially different 
punishment according to their 
dubs’ FA status. Although most 
riulK from tee more senior 
leagues are full members (for 
example, all Gala League dubs 


By Paal Newman 

are full members), there is much 
less consistency just below tee 
highest levels. For example, 10 
of the 21 dobs in the Southern 
League southern division are 
fiill members, the rest associate 
members. 

Full membership is granted to 
dubs on an individual basis, 
laigefy according to their perfor- 
mances in FA competitions, and 
tee status is rarely removed 
once granted. While some full 
members are now playing well 
below the top levels, some 
associate members who have 
made substantial progress bote 
on and off tee pitch have either 
been consistently refused frill 
membership or have had to wait 
several years for it. 

Attempts have been made to 
reform tee membership system 
and thereby end the disciplinary 
anomalies. Two years ago the . 
FA proposed to - gram fall 
memberteip to dubs only in the 
Goto League, Multipart League, 
Vauxbalf-Opel premier di- 
vision, Southern premier di- 
vision and Drybrougbs 
Northern first division; all other 
dubs would have become asso- 
ciate members. 

However, tee p fa n was 
-dropped after it met widespread 
opposition because it would 
have led to 84 dubs outside the 
senior divisions — including 
such fam ous names as Corin- 
thian-Casuals, Bromley;' 
Clapton, Oxford City, West 
Auckland and . Ashington — 
losing their full membership. 

Th e FA’s disciplinary 
committee are now backing a “ 
scheme under which dubs' 
disciplinary matters would bel' 


bandied according '" to their 
league, rather than their FA. 
status. Clubs from the Gola 
League, .. Multipart League. 
Soil them premier division. 
Vauxhall-Opd premier and first 
divisions and Drybrougbs 
Northern first division would be 
dealt with by tee national 
organization: all others would 
go tee counties. 

In practice, this would mean 
that of tee present 256 fall 
member dubs, only 212 would 
remain under the disciplinary 
jurisdiction of Lancaster Gate. 
Previous reforms have often 
been blocked by (he counties, 
but as this proposal extends 
their powers it seems to have a 
greater chance of success. It has 
already received the backing of 
tee FA Council and now needs 
to be .approved by the FA’s 

‘ annua l nwettn^ .' •• — 

If tee scheme is -adopted, it 
seems unlikely teat any further 
attempt wiH be made in the 
immediate future to reform the 
membership system. Although 
associate member dubs have no 
voting rights . and only full 
members receive FA Cup final 
tickets, the disciplinary prob- 
lems have always been the most 
important area of concern for- 
associate member dubs. 

• Weymouth are to move to a 
new stadium two. miles -away 
from their present bttne in the 
city centre. A supermarket is to 
be built on tee '<1018 League 
club’s Recreation Ground and 
they hope to move next January 
- to a ground on the she of tee 
former Wessex Speedway sta- 
dium.

There is no place on the

cxs, in what was scheduled to 
be a British Lions year, have 
been unable to arrange any-

. It is foolish to pretend that 
England have a production

advice toe seleoore will have 
received after last Saturday’s 
drubbing at the hands of| 
Scotland is beyond measure 
but the obvious alternatives 
for selection against Ireland in 
eight days time are few. Any- 
one may argue pros and cons 
in particular positions but 
essentially it remains a matter 
of individual preference rather 
than generally accepted 

ommision. 

It is worth defining what the 
strengths of the English game 
are (and they are linked very 
much to the set piece) and 
working on them because the 
face of England’s game is not 
going to change in 16 months 
— maybe by toe time the 
second world tournament (if 
there is one) comes round, but 
not for the inaugural one. 

In consequence it is hard to 
envisage many changes after 
toe Calcutta Cup game; after 
all, the same side did brat 
Wales a fortnight earlier. 
England's team to play Ireland 
will be picked on Sunday and 
tt. is hoped to organize a 
workout on Monday, or if club 
games go ahead tomorrow on 
any sole, an eariier-ihan-

arms- half outstretched with 
palms turned skyward, just

Not necessarily m the whis- 
pers of those Welshmen from 
the more educated ranks, now 
jauntily- brushing up their 
French phrases ready for the big 
match in a week's lime and 
wanting -something more in 
keeping with their station in life 
than the simple ca va. Rather, it 
reflects the feelings of otbefr 
that after three yean Wales are 
had: in sbihe'Hnd'bfbutizwss. 

A Welshman, with the great- 
est 'deference,- of coax, might 
also cast an eye over the border 
with head-stoking resignation 
and consider the phrase in the 
tight of England's current di- 
lemma. How is it, be may 
wonder, that a month’s eu- 
phoria after toe victory 
wales should now so si 
be replaced by something so 
utterly different? 

How much -difference should 
one game make? Is there so 
much wrong wilha team which,, 
fay common consent, tod gone a. 
long' way to getting it right 
against Wales and, unchanged. 


By Gerald Davies 
tod jtpl it wrong against Scot- 

The. same Welshman might 
wonder at the route that Rob 
'Andrew ‘.might be fluted to 


high, a welcome change from 
more recent years, and there has 
been improvement in every 
game. The team survive, and it, 
has been a matter of survival in' 
wander and which might lead ' larjp patches of their game on 


him lo the same graveyard as so 
many English -half hacks of the 
last 20 years. The match winner 
against Wales and, righto', the 
hero of the hour, is now 
into question after only 
one game. 

The claims of Stuart Baines, 
.since discarded after an 
outstanding lour of New. Zea- 
land, is once more brought into 
toe reckoning. It is a familiar 
seesaw .scene. Many a former 
English: stand-off half is, now 
looked hactnipon' WTth warm 
nostalgia and a feeling of lost 
opportunity. 

-There are a few with substan- 
tial talent of whom it may be 
wondered how they could have 
jflayed so few times for then- 
country. Andrew and Barnes are 
soon to find out whether history 
is about torepeat itself and that 
they, too, might find themselves 
as part of this continuing, but 
wasteful, tradition. . 

. tt ts a team which ought to be 
strengthened but .-however de? 
voutly changes in the front five 
and on toe wing may be wished, 
there are no obvious alter-

the prodigious efforts of toe 
quintet of [flayers, toe half 
backs, centres and full backs. 

The scrummage is beginning 
to look more solid, butnefther 
Whitefoot nor Eidman is 
conspicuous elsewhere in. the

Adrian Hadley scons to lack 
any sense .of urgency on one 
wing and Phil Lewis on the 
other, although an admirable

ping too high a percentage of 
balls. Although they have scored 
a try each during the inter- 
national season, neither has tod 
a good enough chance, to be fair, 
to show his paces in attacks. 

Such changes are only likely if 
the Welsh selectors wish to look 
beyond next Saturday's game; 
but toe prestige of storing the 
championship, once so unlikely, 
may prove too strong a pereua-. 
son to tinker again with the' 
line-up • 


Wembley Stadium could 
stage its first world tide bout 
since Cassius Gay met Henry 
Cooper there in 1963, if Frank 
Bruno beats Gertie Coetzee, of 
South Africa, at Wembley 
Arena on March 4. 

The promoters, Mike Bar- 
rett and Mickey Duff, said 
yesterday that they were confi- 
dent of bringing the World 
Boxing Association heavy- 
weight champion, Tim 
Witherspoon, to London on 
June 14. 

“We are 101 per cent confi- 
dent we can. outbid anyone if 
toe fight goes to purse offers,” 
Barrett said. The promotion 
could gross £3 minion — or 
even exceed £5 .million, if toe 
bout i&scen across the world-* 
according to Barrett. 

Bruno was delighted. “This 
is what I have been dreaming 
of for a very long time,” he 
said. “But fust I have to get 
Coetzee out of the way. I think 
I have got him taped. He is 30 
and 1 don't think he should 
have .another world title 
chancel” - Bruno's manager, 
Terry Lawless, said: “All I can 


say is that the fight against 
Coetzee is all toe more 
important” 

Another British champion 
with an exciting future is Chris 
Pvait, of Leicester. He 
knocked out Prince Rodney, 
of Huddersfield, to win toe 
British tight-middleweight ti- 
tle at the Albert Hall on 
Tuesday night Pyan should 
go far, stopping Rodney was 
no mean feat Rodney is 
experienced and has a knock- 
out punch, but that did not 
worry Pyatt He went straight 
in and took charge. 

When Pyatt landed the right 
uppercut that caught Rodney 
full on toe left eye and brought 
the champion to his knees, he 
stepped out of the shadow of 
the other Leicester boxer, 
Tony Sibson. Pyatt, however, 
wants to follow in Sibson's 
footsteps and move up to 
middleweightJn time. “I ad- 
mire Tony,” he said. “I learnt 
a lot from him when I was his 
sparring partner.” 

The 23-year-old Common- 
wealth Games champion 
brushed aside suggestions that 


he might be a bit on toe short 
side fora middleweight “I am 
as tall as Marvin Hagler and 
taller than Sibson. 1 am in no 
huny but in time I should be a 
middleweight” be said. 

However, as be is a close 
tighter he is open to the quick 
counter and has been floored 
and sustained two bad cuts, 
one above the right eye in his 
last contest and one below that 
eye in this one that needed six 
stitches. 

Pyatt is managed by Sam 
Bums, but now that Sibson, 
who used to be with Bums, 
has put himself under Frank 
Warren, the new champion 
does not spar any more with 
Sibson. He finishes off his 
training in Terry Lawless's 
Canning Town gym in Lon- 
don. 

Pyatt can now box Nick 
Wilshire, the Commonwealth 
champion, or go for toe Euro- 
pean title. Pyatt does not want 
to meet Wilshire as they are 
friends and sparring partners. 
“Nick is a friend of mine,” he 
said. “I would fight him 
because we are professionals, 


but I would prefer to fight for 
the European title. The board 
have promised to nominate 
me.” he said 

Besides, after Wi] shire’s sur- 
prising defeat by Lloyd 
Hibbert, of Birmingham, toe 
same night, when toe Com- 
monwealth champion was se- 
verely punished by uppercuts 
from the fifth to the eighth and 
had to be retired, a double 
championship bout between 
toe two champions does not 
seem attractive at the mo- 
ment. 

Nor is Wilshire’s style inter- 
esting to watch these days. He 
tends to cast boxing to one 
side and walk into ms oppo- 
nents throwing body shots and 
getting caught too often in toe 
process. 

Prince Rodney, who 
claimed that he had been 
thumbed in the eye by Pyatt, 
must now wait to see if the 
punch will aggravate toe old 
injury received in sparring 
that pul him in hospital for an 
operation and out of action for 
months. 


Broughton Park are reaping 
benefit of home produce 


Those who enjoy omens 
might care to note that Leices- 
ter, on the way lo their first 
winning cup . final, beat 
Broughton Hark in the fourth 
round in 1979. Moreover, any 
Leicester follower (all of them 
students of die Orient) will tell 
you that this is the Year of the 
Tiger. 

This season Leicester are once 
more due to meet Broughton 
Park in the fourth round of the 
John Player Special Cup, al- 
lhough the weather seems deter- 
mined to postpone the game as 
long as possible. A mid-day 
pitch inspection at the Park's 
Cbeisfield Grove ground today 
will indicate whether enough 
frost has come out of toe playing 
surface. 

The park will teH you, frankly,

that Leicester must be warm 
favourites. Neverthele ss, t his

their Irish full back. Kevin 
O'Brien, spent most of toe 
season injured and they sub- 
sided from toe Northern merit 
table back into the qualifying 
table. 

When considering Manches- 
ter rugby one tends not to t hink 
much beyond Sale, though the 
Park and toe M an c h e s ter dnb 
itself are venerable institutions. - 

Manchester celebrated 125 years 

of rugby before Christmas and 
the Park have seen 104seasons 
come and go. Over tom time 
they have developed a healthy 
self-reliance, learning to pro- 


duce their own [flayers rather 
than depending on talent mov- 
inginto the area. 

They have seen individuals 
such as Tony Bond go to Sale, 
Jim Syddafl to Waterloo and 
Paul Jackson, whose father and 
grandfather played for the Park, 
making his way with Harle- 
quins. They mil, of course, 
reflect that England’s most 
capped player, Tony Neary, 
spent his senior career with 
■ them, yet the shadow oF Sale 
remains long. Only this season

wick.'went to Brooklands before

The thumb injury that kept 
O'Brien out between October 
and April last season deprived- 
.Broughton Park of more than 
- just a full back. Capped by 


victory against Vale of Lune 
which ensured their best cup 
season so far. 

- Dominic Stone, their promis- 
ing young lock, played d vital 
rote against toe Vale. It was his 
two-handed catch at a lineoni 
near toe opposition line that set 
up Jimmy Wilde, last season’s 
captain, for a try. It was also his 
catch, on his own line near the 
end of the match, that deprived 
Vale of Lone of the chance to 

pull level. 

Stone, standing some 6ft 7in, 
came into the side IS months 
ago. Graham Higginbotham, a 
Lancashire colt, was brought in 
this season after injuries dis- 
rupted the existing midfield and

A ‘getting 
to know 
you’ final 

By Paul Harrison 

Two one-sided semi-finals 
have resulted . in., a 
sounding final of the Royal 
Bank Cup on May 1 1 at Crystal 
Palace. Speedwell Kucanor, from 
Bristol, the cup holders, de- 
feated their load rivals. Red- 
wood Lodge. 3-0 ( 1 5-4, 15-8. 15- 
5) last weekend and meet 
Capital City Brixton in the final 
Capital City proved too good for 
Radio Treat Rockets, of the 
second division, who went 
down 3-0 (1 5-8. 15-3, 15-5). 

Both teams have been regular 
visitors to toe final in the 
eighties, Speedwell having won 
three times (1981, 1983 and 
1985) and Capital City twice 
(1980 and 1984). They .rise 
make a habit -of meeting each 
other in the final 
Before then, however, toe 
destination of the league tide 
must be d e c i ded. Capital City 
will have no say in that this 
season but Speedwell will and 
this weekend at that Level at 
toe top of the table with Pofamla, 
they go to their rivals 

tomorrow know- 
ing that . victory will mob 
wrest the league title from the 
Poles. 

Polonia have a game in hand, 
but Speedwell have dropped 
fewer sets. In Polonia's favour is 
home advantage ' and the fact 
that they won in Bristol two 
weekends ago. catching Speed- 
well cold. “We are a naturally 
attacking side, and for us to beat 
Polonia we have to attack," 
Sieve Nuth, the Speedwell coa- 
ch, says. “And that is what we 
are going to do. We have to 
win.” 

Polonia bustled Speedwell out 
of that attacking game in toe 
first match, forcing them to 
concentrate on. blocking. No 
doubt toe videos Polonia 
watched of Speedwell in action 

helped too. “Watching videos 
helps other, teams more than it 
helps us,” Nuto says, “because 
we change our game more from 
season to season, while most 
teams, including Polonia. still 
play the same way as they did 
last season. They might be better 
at it, though.” 

This season, for the first time, 
the top four teams in the Royal 
Bank League go forward to a

Dragonara Leeds, who have

YACHTING 


Fastnet designers 
can still learn 


By John Nicholis 
Last year’s Fastnet race, al- 
though nowhere near as rough 
as that of 1 979, was nevertheless 
held in extremely severe con- 
ditions. Of toe 222 yachts that 
started from Cowes on August 
10. only 70 of them reached the 
finish at Plymouth a few days 
later. However, unlike 1979, 
when several yachts foundered 
and 15 people lost their lives, 
only one boat required outside 
assistance last year and no one 
was seriously hurt. 

An enquiry conducted by the 
Royal Ocean Racing Club and 
the Royal Yachting Association 
in 1979 revealed several short- 
comings in yacht design and a 
lack ofexpencnce of some crews 
that contributed to their prob- 
lems. Subsequent rule changes 
have lead to better qualified 
crews, and many detailed 
improvements to yacht design 
and construction. 

However, a RORC analysis of 
the reasons for retirement from 
last year’s race show that while 
crews now seem more aware of 
potential danger in heavy 
weather, designers and builders 
still have some lessons to learn. 

The most common reason 
given for retiring was caution 
rather than boat failure. Many 
crews became decidedly 
apprehensive during the gale 
they experienced on the second 
day of toe ' rape (Sunday) and 
retired there and then. Not only 
was it rough at the .time, but 
more, or worse, was promised 
and toe majority of toe boats 
that retired for prudent reasons 
did so on the second day. 

it is interesting to note that no 
matter what the size of the yacht 
if she continued through toe 
Sunday, she was most likely to 
finish toe race. The majority of 
the voluntary retirements were 
achis in Classes three, four 
five, toe smallest and 
generally the most uncomfort- 
able in toe fleet. 

it is probable that at that stage 
of the race, the nearby havens of 
Torbay, Dartmouth and. Plym- 
outh were an incentive to seek 
shelter and then perhaps retire. 

To quote from the retirement 
declaration of one class three 
crew: “Sailed into Dartmouth 
with a view to continuing race 
when weather improved. Heard 
of SO many disasters on radio, 
that it seemed more fun to sail 
to St VaasL It was.” Another 
from class five said; “Sailed with 
one watch leader short, skipper 
damaged arm. ribs, and leg 
being pitched across boat into 
guard rails. Two crew sick. 

Wind west force 9, progress 
down course minim aL Forecast 
showed no signs of improve- - 
mart for 48 hours, ft wasn't fun" 
any more*’. 

The RORC comment on this 
section or toe analysis is brief 
and to toe point, “'ll is satisfac- 
tory that many yachts retired on 

the grounds of prudence. Whilst 
offshore yacht racing gives plea- 
sure and excitement to many, it 
is for most participants a 
hobby”. 

Although the retirement race 
in classes one and two 


lower, it was stiO more than 50 
per cent in each case. In these 
classes the - weather was less 
significant, partly because toe 52 
Admiral's Cup yachts were in- 
cluded within this group. Theirs 
was both a series and a team 
event, so there was more in- 
centive to finish the race. Only 
one Admiral's Cup boat is 
recorded as retired because of 
the weather, toe other 23 none 
causes of retirement were due to 
hull or gear failure including 8 
dismasting*. 

Of this dismal record the 
RORC comment: “It would be 
expected that the Admiral's Cup 
fleet would be designed, con- 
structed and equipped to the 
highest standards. Even taking 
into account that toe designs 
would be biased towards speed 
producing properties rather 
than ultimate strength, a retire- 
ment rate of nearly half must be 
considered as the 
disappointment," 

Damage to sails was men- 
tioned more often than any 
other non-weather factor 
throughout the fleet. In conjunc- 
tion with a high proportion of 
mast and rigging failures (many 
of item admittedly due to 
inexpert handling) it would 
appear that there is still much to 
be learned about producing and 
using reliable rigs. 

Modern hulls using light- 
weight composite materials are 
still giving cause for concern. It 
is perhaps significant that when 
the age of a yacht is considered 
toe lowest retirement rate 
(excluding Admiral's Cup) was 
by yachts over 10 years old. The 
winners of classes four and five 
were launched before 1971 
while second and third places in 
class three were taken'by boats 
ofl 976 vintage. 

Yacht design has always pro- 
gressed to a large degree by trial 
and error. Clearly it is still doing 
so and one hopes the lesson of 
toe Fastnet have been learned to 
produce a new generation of 
more seaworthy boats. 

While the boat failures in the 
Fastnet did not lead to tragedy, 
though toe loss of Drum's keel 
came dose, the same might not 
be true of toe Whitbread Round 
the World Race, There has been 
similar, but more alarming fail- 
ure of bulls and rigs among the 
15 entries that are now on their 
third lot of that race. Several 
marts have had to be replaced 
(twice on two boats) and at each 
port of call there has been 
extensive rebuilding of some of 
the newer hulls. One hopes they 
have an easy passage round 
Cape Horn.

By Joyce Whitehead 

The GMC Home Countries 
international B tournament, 
which sians today at Lancashire 
CCCs headquarters at Old 
Trafford. has extra significance 
for England. After the tour- 
nament five of their side will be 
selected to complete toe En- 
gland squad for toe World Cup 
m July. 

In the B side are last year's 
England captain Linda Care 
(Lancashire) and Kim Gordon 
(Leicestershire), who have both 
been capped for England many 
times, and Caroline Rule 
(Leicestershire) who is now fit 
again after injury. There are 
other players who were in the 
England squad on thedisastrous 
tour of Australia last summer, 
and all will struggle to regain 
their places. 

Also competing in the tour- 
nament are Canada. They, like 
England, Scotland and Ireland 
are preparing for the World 
Cup. They have had a week in 
Ireland where special arrange- 
ments were made for them to 
play four matches on grass as 
opposed to artificial turf 

On Tuesday toe North of 
England gave Canada a shock. 
They played on grass at 
Brooklands and beat them 4-0. 

There will be four matches 
today and tomorrow and two on 
Sunday morning. Play starts at 
10 am with Scotland v Wales 
then Canada v England , Ireland 
v Scotland and the last match at 
141 5 Canada v Wales.

was not yet confident enough

doubles) in a Davis Cup tie.

Lloyd and Dowdeswell cannot 
have much longer to go as a 
Da\is Cup pair - and Bates

All these permutations are

'he price of seeking pairs perfection 


Give Brittain, the Newmarket train- 
er. needed a shade over two minutes one 
glorious afternoon in New York to 
discover that the United States really is 
the land of opportunity. 

At the Aqueduct racetrack early last 
November his equine super-star, 
Pebbles, triumphed in the top event on 
Breeders’ Cup Day, capturing the hearts 
of the .American public and collecting a 
cool $900,000 (£775.862) of their cur- 
rency. 

Three weeks later. Brittain nearly 
pulled off another audacious coup, right 
under the nose of Uncle Sam, when 
Jupiter Island came with a storming 
finish to miss second place by a nose in 
the Washington International at LaureL 
The seven-year-old's owner-breeders. 
Lord and Lady Tavistock, received a 
handsome £36.000 for that brave effort. 

Brittain, smitten with his success, 
now plans to become the first English 
trainer to land America's most prized 
event, the Kentucky Derby, traditional- 
ly run in the carnival atmosphere of 
Churchill Downs on the first Saturday 
in May. 

Bold .Arrangement, who as a juvenile 
won last season's Solario Stakes at 
Sandowi] before being disqualified from 
second place behind Bakharoff in 
Doncaster's Futurity Stakes, is the horse 
singled out for the job. 

However, his S 2-year-old trainer is 
not leaving anything to chance.Boid 
Arrangement will first have his classic 
Lest in the nine-furlong Blue Grass 
Stakes at Keeneland on April 24. 

“I really feel Bold Arrangement will 
be better suited to American racing. He 
can go fast early on, has a good turn of 
finishing speed, and will stay 10 
furlongs over there. I’ve also no fears 
about his acting on the dirt or handling 
the left-hand bends. ” Brittain said. 

The stable's hardy warrior. Jupiter 
Island, heads for the sunny climes of 
California for his first run of the season. 
His objective is the San Juan Capistrano 
Handicap, run on turf, at Santa Anita on 
April 20. 

It is also quite conceivable, granted 
that he stays fresh and sound through 
his sum mer campaign, that the St Paddy 
horse will end his racing career with a 
crack at the Melbourne Cup in Novem- . 
ber. "If they handicap him in Australia, 
with a fair weight and we can synchro- 
nize the travelling times then we will 
seriously consider running him." 
Brittain said 

For several years, with his ready smile 
and infectious optimism, Brittain was 


i regarded as racing's Mr Nice-Guy. Now 
through bis enterprising successes 
abroad he has found international 
respect as a trainer. 

Pebbles, of course, is very dear to 
him. Now a five-year-old. she won the 
1984 1.000 Guineas and last July earot a 
special place in the record books by 
becoming the first filly to break the male 
stranglehold on Sandown's historic 
Eclipse Stakes. 

Although her Breeders' Cup Turf 
victory was very exciting, her breathtak- 
ing performance when cruising past Slip 
Anchor in the Dubai Champion Stakes 
at Newmarket which preceded her New 
York triumph, gave Brittain more 
satisfaction. "Coaxing her back to her 
best after a 3Vi-month lay-off was most 
rewarding. Brittain added. 

Pebbles, it appears, does take some 
knowing. She rarely puts her best foot 
forward on the gallops, and will only 
participate if her constant companion. 
Come On The Blues, leads her. She 
thrives on a part diet of Guinness and 
eggs, but in the true tradition of a 
temperamental actress, reserves her best 
performance for the opening night 

Because of the advance publicity. 
New Yorkers knew all about Pebbles 
ind her boyfriend. Come On The Blues. 

1 who was allowed to lead her down to the 
start of the big Aqueduct evenL They 
took to Pebbles so warmly that she was 
installed a red-hot favourite, and she 
did not let them down, holding off 
Strawberry Road in a barn-storming 
finish. 

Pebbles will return to the Slates in the 
Autumn for another crack at the 


Breeders’ Cup Turf, and she may also 
compete, eariier. in the Arlington 
Million at Chicago. Her first appearance 
in this counny will be delayed until July 
when she attempts to repeat her Eclipse 



Brittain and his wife. Maureen, 
returned to Newmarket at the weekend 
after spending a fortnight's holiday in 
Florida and on the West Coast, their 
first break for four years. Brittain 
collected an award for Pebbles as best 
filly on grass at the grand Eclipse prize 
ceremony in Miami, receiving bis award 
from the actor. John Forsythe (Blake 
Carrington of Dynasty). "The Ameri- 
cans certainly know bow to lay it on. It 
really was a lavish affair, the trainer 
said. But while he was in the States. 
Brittain took the trouble to visit the 
Santa Anita racetrack in Hollywood, in 
preparation for Jupiter Island. 

The trainer, relaxed and confident, 
was busy supervising part of his 1 00- 
plus suing, who were hade cantering on 
the wood chip all-weather surface at his 
Carlburg stable yesterday. He quickly 
pointed out Supreme Leader, who was 
never right again after jarring himself 
when fourth in the Derby. "He has put 
on 90 kilos this winter and could be a 
major force in the big mile events this 
year," Brittain aid. 

Despite the snowy surround, two 
horses actually enjoyed themselves in 
Brittain's equine swimming pool from 
which handlers had to skim off the ice 
from the surface. “No. it isn’t crucL" 
Britiain said. "They have a much higher 
body temperature than humans, and 
their metabolism is different too. "The 
horses, instead of shivering when (hey 
came out. looked positively invigorated 
by their dip. 


Give Brittain was the highest Europe - 
a money-earner in 1985. His domestic 


an money-earner in 1985. His domestic 
earnings totalled £435,736, while 
Pebbles and Jupiter Island, who in 
October won Longchamp's £3 1 .805 Prix 
du Conseil de Paris, boosted Brittain's 
overseas winners’ tally to £807.667. 

His overall total of more than £I.2m 
surpassed even the champion trainer, 
Henry Cecil's domestic record total of 
£U48.I89. which included four classic 
winners. Surely. Brittain's magnificent 
achievements abroad will serve as a 
salient example to other trainers that 
they should broaden their horizons. As 
Brittain succinctly said: ” The prizes are 
there. AU you need is the confidence to 
go and get them."

she said, “each polling against

contest the day before, an appar- 
ent lack of speed forced ber to 
seek hand support on the surface 
and in the death spiral, where 
the woman is rotated while 
■virtually parallel with the ice. 

These were the only blem- 
ishes in two carefully prepared 
and balanced programmes 
which are being polished and 
refined for the Geneva show- 
piece. 

Top pairs, stock as Yelena 
Valova and Oleg Vasilyev, the 
Soviet world and Olympic cham- 
pions. perform synchronized tri- 
ple solo jumps and solo double 
axels too, bat, as Naylor points 
oat, it takes months to perfect 
these. “We can each do triple 
salchows: that's one thing, bat 
doing them side by side is 
another. We shall work on them 
for next year." 

Another task before Geneva is 
to acquire the speed so obviously 
lacking at Copenhagen. “It's 
power skating we need to per- 
fect, the ability to cover the ice at 
speed and with deep edges like 
the Russians and North 
Americans," Miss Peake said. 
“We Ye doing it now before 
training, boikltag op speed, solo 
and together. It helps to build op 
our tegs." 

No less spectacular than the 
throws are the lifts in which the 
woman is raised in a vertical or 
horizontal position while ber 
partner rotates on the ice below 
her. The couple plan a “no-

The camera showed, how-

Despite the small field this

marvellous spectacle of fast

lead all the way. 

Approaching the turn for

head Rainbow Warrior and 
when he opened up a three-

jumps the issue appeared in safe 
keeping. His rider Tommy 
Carmody was not so confident, 
though, and after he bad glanced

There was nothing to choose

THE TIMES FRIDAY FEBRUARY 21 1 986 

Motoring by Clifford Webb 


How the Avant weathered the storm 


m* ?- 8 ft ***«« car weighing almost 
1 h tonnes with a povwsrftj 22 litre ' 
fiiel-mjected, tuitxH*aig£j 

vehicle m which to tackle a 1 8ft-mile 

JSJJfy 00 r 9®? s treacherous after a 
heavy overnight snowfall. That was 

y«. wthin the first 
was kppily couming'my 

While others were sliding around 
or stuck altogether 1 got through 
wth minimum effort. And whena 
VauxhaOi Carlton suddenly shot out 
Of control into my path I slammed 
on the brakes and swerved around it 
with such little drama that the : 
dnver never knew how close he 
came to being torpedoed amidships.-' 

By now it will be obvious that this” 
was no ordinary estate car. 
Indeed.ordinary” is the" last adjec- 
tive one would choose to describe 
the remarkable Audi 200 Avant 
Quattro. To begin with it does not 
look like any other estate car. 
Perhaps a better description would 
be a luxury saloon with estate car 
tendencies. Only the extra large pair 
of windows behind the rear 
reveals its true identity. 

But good looks, however appeal- 
ing, are the last things drivers mink ' 
about in such abysmal conditions. It ' 
was the Avant’s hidden assets which 
were put to the test that day — four 
wheel drive and Bosch ABS anti- 
lock braking. Between them they 
must count for some £4,500 of the 
Avant's £25,307 price tag. 

Yet for some 95 per cent of the 
car's life in the hands of the average 
driver they will never be needed. 
Most drivers- are unable to take 
advantage of the extra traction 
available with 4 x 4. A large 
proportion of accidents with Audi 
Quartros must be caused by drivers - 
trying to find the car's limit through 
bends. It goes foster and foster and- 
still retains limpet-like mad hold- 
ing. What they do not realize is that 
when a 4 x 4 comes unstuck it 
happens entirely without warning 
and because of the very high speed 
invariably means a serious accident. 

ABS on the other hand can be 
tested regularly to reassure yourself 
that when an emergency arises you 
know how the car will react Choose 
a quiet road on a rainy day. Check 
you rear view mirror and at about 
60 mph hit the brakes hard. You 
will immediately feel alight pump- 
ing action under your foot as the 
electronic sensors - prevent ' the 
wheels locking. It is this automatic 
“cadence" braking which keeps 
enough rubber in contact with the 
road to enable you to retain control 
through the steering wheel. 

Towards the end of the test 
weather conditions improved to the 
extent that I was able to use more of 
the smooth-flowing power of die 
1 82 bhp turbo charged engine. The 
ratios of the very slick five-speed 
gearbox are- well matched • to its

I was disappointed however by 
ibejx>or field of vision through the 
rear window, lx is very restricted by 
the unusually high boot-line and an 
airdam mounted three-quarters of 
the way down the steeply sloping 
glass hatch. 

The 200 Avant is very lavishly 
equipped with an electric sunroof, 
fully automatic airconditioning, 
electrically operated - sports-type 
seats and door mirrors, cruise 
control, additional long distance 
driving lights, warning buzzer for

Peugeot’s Hopes 

Lying ur bed recovering from a 
particularly vimlant bout of flu is a ' 
very depressing time With every 
joint in the body aching and a head 
as big as a bucket, even the most 
minor problems assume catastroph- 
ic proportions. This week when I 
was at my lowest ebb 1 struggled to 
recall something nice to lift the 
depression. The picture I conjured 
up was of a ligbtgreen Peugeot 309. 
Ait surely with all the exotic 
machinery^! my command I could 


is being assembled at Ryton near 
Coventry? 

Not so. From the moment I sat 
behind the wheel of the ' 309 GL I 
was at home. Everything, clicked ;..

choke (very rare today), a driving 
position which required tittle ad- 
justment to make me comfortable 


equipment, trim and. engine size 

How rise wilt the works manager be 
able to show colleagues that he 
ranks higher in the pecking order 
than a “rep". 

I pointed out this ommision to 
Geoffrey Whalen, managing direc- 
tor of Peugeot Talbot UK at the cars 
launch in December. 

Within 24 hours be had discussed 
h with his sales team. The outcome, 
according to reliable sources, is that 
within a short lime 1.3 and 1.6 
models will cany their engine size 
ontbebooL 

., The model- i tested last week was 
the. TGIf 1,6 V with a five-speed 
; gearbox.' This is one of the group's 
latest engines featuring an alloy 
cylinder block and head with an 
overhead camshaft. 1 have already 
remarked on the exceptionally dean 
pick-up and this allied to the 
smooth way the power is delivered 
makes it surprisingly quick. It is also 
one of the quietest cars in its class. 

The 205 Supermini hatchback did 
wonders for Peugeot. The 309 five- 
door hatchback draws upon the 
same basic design but provides the 
passenger space and luggage room 
the 205 cannot. If Ryton maintains 
the high standard of the model I 
tested when production reaches its 
target of 1.000 per week the 309 
could be just as big a winner.

although it became a bit ofa handful 
when manoeuvring in a confined

The 309's most satisfying asset is 
its brakes. They are without doubt 
the best I have encountered on a 
mass-produced . family . car. The 
slightest pressure on the pedal 
brought a reassuring response, not 
the brutal kind you get on some 
Citroens which threaten to hurl you 
through the windscreen when you 
thought you were only braking 
gently, but the kind that responds to 
increased pressure progressively 
and swift I have seldom felt so 
confident and safe.

Go fast debut 

A newcomer making a much de- 
layed debut in Britain was bunched 
at the Belfast Motor Show this 
week. The Renault 5 GT Turbo has 
been on sale in France for nearly a 
year and was so successful that 
exports had to wait their turn. It has 
the same 1.4 litre power unit as the 
Renault 1 i Turbo giving the smaller 
car a top speed of over 1 25 mph and 
0-60 mph time of only S seconds. 
Among the changes made to cope 


litre engines. But nowhere on the car' with some 1 1 5 bhp is a new four-bar 


inside or out are you told which 
engine it has. For some reason 
Peugeot do not like labelling their 
cars with the engine size. The only 
Peugeot which breaks this rule to 
my knowledge is the magnificent 
205 GTi and that is restricted to a 
small red painted panel behind the 
rear window. / _ 

Bui the 309 carries all Peugeot's 
hopes of becoming established in 
the British fleet market and the one 


gearbox are- well matched to fts machinery tit my command I could the British fleet market and the one 
torque curve; Thp rcsuJfr-is a wy * «io better than a -nm-of^the-mfll ^fhSng fleet buym insist on is deal

rear suspension layout It also 
acquires disc brakes all round with 
the front pair ventilated. 

The “hot batch" sector is one of 
the fastest growing with sales up 
from 14.000 in 1984 to 30,000 last 
year. Renault hope to sell 3,000 5 
GT Turbos here this year but it is up 
against some pretty formidable 
competition in the Ford Fiesta 
XR2, MG Metro Turbo, Peugeot 
205 GTi and the Fiat Uno Turbo. 
And at £7*360 the new Renault is 
the most expensive of the bunch.

Counting the cost of safer cricket 

By Richard Streeton * Cricketers fast took to wear- aged regular use of foe boa 


For all the p rote c ti ve gear 
cricketers wear these days, 
Mike Gatting's horrendous ac- 
cident in Jamaica this week 
was a reminder of the lethal 
punishment a cricket ball can. 
inflict Gating, who is among 
those who dislike wearing a 
riser with their helmets, had 
his nose crashed when he 
missed an intended hook. 


Cricketers first took to wear- 
ing modern-type pads, gloves 
and boxes in 1835 after 
ronodann bowling was legal- 
ized, but other forms of protec- 
tion had been in use earlier. 

Two types of helmet, with 
either a Perspex visor or a 
metal grid, are the most recent 
innovation. It was not until 
1977-78, when Kerry Packer’s 
World Series Cricket encour- 


aged regular use of the bounc- 
er, that helmets became 
commonplace. 

The chest protecta, forearm 
guard and thigh pad are also 
fairly recent innovations. In 
bygone days, though, when 
cricketers were more reticent

Mafia 

boss 

Palermo (AP) - Signor 
Michele Greco, widely be- 
lieved to be the top Sicilian 
Mafia leader, .was arrested 
yesterday, at a farmhouse 
about 24 miles firnn here. . 

Signor Tommaso Buscetta, 
8 known gangster turned po*: 
Uce informer, told authorities, 
that Signor Greco, aged 62 and 
known’ as “fi Papa" (the 
Pope), controlled the entire 
criminal syndicate hi Sicily 
and was the undisputed boss 
ofPaiermo. 

A police official at 
yesterday's arrest described it 
as the “most important .break 
in years” in die stale's fight 
against organized crime in 
Italy. 

The official, who spoke on 
condition Ire was not identi- 
fied, said Signor Greco served 
as chairman of the top Mafia 
directorate which operated a 
multi-billion dollar drag- 
smuggling operation from Ita- 
ly to the U& • • 

Police said his arrest came 
as part of a Sciiy-wide crack- 
down involving hundreds of 
policemen in which 24 otfaer 
Mafia suspects,. sympathizers 
and common criminals were 
caught. 

Signor Greco and his broth- 
er Salvatore, nicknamed “the 
senator” aged 58 and also a 
convicted gangster at 
largejtave been strain since 
1982. They ; were .tried in 
absentia and sentenced to fife 
imprisonment in July 1984 for 
planning the 1983 car-bomb 
killing of an anti-Mafia judge. 
Signor Rocco Chhmka. 

The Greco brothers are 
among 474 defendants in the 
massive anti-Mafia trial which 
began here on February 10. 

Signor Greoo is charged 
with ordering a string of 
killings including the 1982 
assassination of General Carlo 
Alberto Dalla Chiesa, Italy's 
top anti-Mafia tighter, and his 
wife. He is also charged with 

drug t rafficking and c riminal 

association. 

The Greco b ro t h ers are the 
sons of Signor G iu s e ppe Gre- 
co, who dominated the Sicil- 
ian underworld throughout 
the 1950s.
