Anglo-German 
friendship ‘solid’ 


" -'.m • " " — " 





President von Weizsicker of West Germany 
told a state banquet at Buckingham Palace last 
night that friendship between the two countries 
had been re-established on a solid foundation 
since the Second World War. 

The President, who is becoming known as 
“the conscience of West Germany”, said that 
the 70th anniversary of the Battle of the 
Somme gave every reason to remember how 
tensions between Britain and Germany led to 
war, destruction and bitter human suffering. 

He said that the Prince and Princess of 
Wales had agreed to visit West Germany next 
year, and announced the founding of two 
£3,000 yearly prizes for British and German 
journalists who did most to promote friendship 
and understanding between the two countries.

By Onr Sports Staff 


Ian Botham, the England 
cricketer who is already nnder 
suspension, has apologized to 
toe Test and County Cricket 
Board for a speech criticizing 
the England selectors. But he 
has been ordered to explain 
his remarks to the chairman of 
the TCCB, after which farther 
action may be taken. 

Botham made his remarks 
at a private dinner in Man- 
chester last week. Hie TCCB 
said yesterday it deplored 
what be had said. Botham 
explained m a letter that his 
speech had been taken out of 
context and that he had every 
reason to be grateiul to the

At Air France, which oper- 
ates a comparable network 
based on Paris, toe fall was 6 
per cent BA's other closest 
rivals, KLM based on Amster- 
dam and Lufthansa on Frank- 
furt, recorded traffic growth of 
5 per cent and 3 per cent 
respectively. 

On toe London to Paris 
route, where BA is heavily 
dependant on US travellers 
taking flights on to Europe, the 
damage was even greater, with 
a 20 per cent drop in BA 
canyings compared with 7 per 
cent for Air France. 

There can be little doubt 
that Britain’s support for Pres- 
ident Reagan's action, not 
echoed in West Europe, was 
toe main factor in BA's loss. 


“The main factor in this 
traffic loss seems to have been 
a loss of confidence by US 
business and leisure 
travellers,” BA said yesterday. 
“US airlines were worst hit, 
and we were next” 

The airline was unable to 
give figures, but a 14 per cent 
loss on an annual basis would 
represent nearly 800,000 pas- 
sengers worth more than £200 
million in revenue and more 
ihan £I2m in profiL 
Because of remedial action 
by the airline, including the 
free-seax bonanza for US trav- 
ellers, traffic has since picked 
up sharply- Last week it was 
up I per cent worldwide, 
Britain’s other international 
airline, British Caledonian, 
appears to have suffered much 
less.

West Berlin. 

However, between the point 
and the westward hoe there 
are two steed doors across the 
track which are designed to 
prevent escapes. 

The 12 men are said to have 


tried to smash, the train 
through the doors or to have 
used explosives to blow them 
down. 

But border guards knew of 
the plot were waiting in the

U nman rights organizations 
in West Berlin yesterday said 
they were treating the report 
as speculation arising oot of an 
incident which undoubtedly 


took place near the 
Aiexanderplfltz station in East 
Berlin on May 7. The station 
and shops nearby were dosed 
and evacuated for several 
boors. 

Yesterday the West Berlin 
Transport Authority said it 
was told on that day by the 
East Germans that there bad 
been a fire, caused by a short- 
circuit, on the fine. 

The West Berlin authority 
said it wonld have been impos- 
sible for a train to knock down 
the steel doors, no matter bow- 
fast it had been travelling. 

Even if the train had got 
through, in order to reach the 
west- H wonld have had to pass 
several closed-down under- 
ground stations on the eastern 
side, which are manned by 
sentries. 

The original report was put 
oat by the Berlin West-East 
News Agency, which special- 
izes in dramatic reports from 
East Germany. The report was 
denied yesterday by the East 
German Government 


• The Berliner Morgenpop 
said a serious East Berlin 
subway fire reported by the 
East German media a day 
after the escape attempt was 
apparently touched off by the 
tunnel shoot-out (AP reports). 

The East German ADN 
news agency said at the time 
that eight people were injured 
in an unexplained subway fire 
on an empty train. 

Despite the division of Ber- 
lin and construction of the 
Wall subway tines that had 
long served the pre-war, united 
Berlin were left in place. 

However, East Berlin bor- 
der authorities prevent East 
German citizens from board- 
ing trams at Friedriehstrasse 
station, the only stop in East 
Berlin for trains coming to and 
from the city 's western sector. 

The station was the scene of 
a spectacular escape in 1964, 
when 11 East Berlin high- 
school pupils leapt on board a 
moving tram on its way from 
Moscow to Paris. 


Moscow ready 


to reopen 
talks with US 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The main immediate obsta- 
cle to a superpower summit 
this year has .been removed 
with toe Soviet proposal to 
Washington that talks be re- 
sumed to rearrange a meeting 
between the countries* foreign 
ministers, which was post- 
poned indefinitely by toe 

Kremlin in protest over the 
US bombing raids on Libya in 
April 

The crucial meeting be- 
tween Mr Eduard Shevard- 
nadze, toe Soviet Foreign 
Minister, and Mr George 
Shultz, the US Secretary of 
State, was originally scheduled 
to take place in Washington 
from May 14 to 16 and was to 
have laid the groundwork for a 
second Reagan-Gorbachov 
summit 

Hopes for the second sum- 
mit began 10 fade during toe 
weeks of stalemate, but toe 
Soviet decision to renew plans 
for toe ministerial talks has 
renewed optimism that toe 
summit will take place, as 
originally intended, in Wash- 
ington before the end of the 
year. 

American sources said toe 
Reagan Administration had 
already begun pressing for the 
ministerial meeting to take 
place in London in a few 
weeks' time, immediately af- 
ter Mr Shevardnadze’s visit 
there. 

An alternative venue would 
be the United Nations in 
September, but this would 
preclude any chance of toe 
summit being held before late 
November. 

The surprise announcement 
of Moscow’s willingness to 
resume the talks was made 
yesterday by Mr Vladimir 


Petrovsky, a deputy Foreran 
Minister. “We have officially 


proposed to the American sick; 
to set in motion the prepara- 
tory mechanisrn for such a 
meeting between our two 
ministers,” he told a crowded 
press conference. 

He said no date had yet 
been set for the Shevardnadze^ 
Shultz meeting because the 
Kremlin would have to be 
convinced that “tangible 
results” could be produced 

He said the same applied for 
the summit itself. 

Outlining toe Soviet stand, 
Mr Petrovsky told the tele- 
vised press confe/fince: “The 
Soviet Union supports a pro- 
ductive dialogue. We are tor a 
summit meeting with toe 
United States, but we would 
like the meeting not to be just 
a handshake, but to be fol- 
lowed by tangible, concrete 
results with regard to greater 
security and toe limitation of 
arms.” 

Senior Soviet sources have 
made it clear that similar 
incidents to the Libya raids 
could again put toe whole 
summit process in serious 
jeopardy. 

• WASHINGTON: The Rea- 
gan Administration yesterday 
said it was ready for a meeting 
of the US and Soviet foreign 
ministers to prepare for a new 
summit between the count- 
ries' leaders, bul Moscow had 
not proposed a date (Mohsin 
Ali writes). 

The State Department 
spokesman said toe US had 
been willing since last January 
to schedule the preparatory 


meeting, but so far, any dales 
it had proposed had been 


unacceptable to Moscow. 


Two held 
after arms 


seizure 


Hot spell 
over by 
weekend 


By Michael Horsnell 


Two men were being held 
by police.in.the West Country 
last night under toe Preven- 
tion ofTerrorism Aci after the 
discovery of an arsenal of 
rocket launchers. 


There were at least five 
launchers, it is believed. De- 
tectives detained toe two men, 
aged 32 and 38, in Trow- 
bridge. Wiltshire, on Monday, 
after an undercover security 
operation and seized the 
weapons from lock-up 
garages. 


The men, both English, 
were nearing the end of 36 
hours' detention without 
charge allowed by toe Police 
and Criminal Evidence Act 
when police invoked toe Pre- 
vention ofTerrorism Act 


Serious charges are expected 
today and police said there 
could be further arrests. 


The hot spell continued 
yesterday in most areas of 
Britain but temperatures were 
slightly- cooler and less humid 
than Monday, a London 
Weather Centre spokesman 
said. 

In London, one of the warm- 
est places, ft was 25C (77F) 
compared with 28C (83 F) on 
Monday. 

Eastern coastal resorts av- 
eraged 2IC to 22C (72F) bntat 
Blackpool and Anglesey the 
temperatures dropped as low 
as I5C (59F). 

In Devon and Cornwall, 
temperatures average d 17C to 
19C (66F). 

Today's forecast is mainly 
dry and snnny m most parts of 
England and Wales with some 
isolated showers. 

A weather centre spokes- 
man said the sonny weather 
; would remain until Thursday

Parents given 
powers to 
appeal over 
expelled pupils 


By Sheila Gann, Political Staff 
Parents will have the right the committee has an ex cel- 

record for supporting 
te it found 


to appeal to an independent 
tribunal against the expulsion 
of a child from school, under a 
: Government scheme an- 
' nounced yesterday. 

But school governors will 
' no longer be forced to take 
back disruptive pupils and 
' they will also have the right to 
' appeal. 

This change will prevent 
disputes similar to that at 
Poundswick School. Man* 
. Chester, when a head was 

■ ordered by a local education 
authority to readmit five pu- 

; pils expelled for allegedly 
painting graffiti, and insulting 
teachers. 

Two professional bodies 
representing head teachers ap- 
pealed to the Government to 
change the law to give school 
governors more say over disci- 
plining pupils. 

Mr Kenneth Baker, the 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion and Science, agreed to 
' add a clause to the Education 
Bill, at present going through 
' its detailed committee stage in 
the Commons. 

The scheme, added to the 
Bill yesterday, will allow gov- 
ernors and parents to appeal 

■ to the school admissions ap- 

■ peal committee in disputes 
involving disruptive children. 
The committee's decision will 
be binding. 

Opposition MPs have ar- 
gued that this committee is 
: biased in favour of education 
authorities. 

But the Department of Edu- 
cation and Science said that 


lent 

parents. On average 
in favour of parents in 44 per 
cent of cases last year. In Leeds 
and Suffolk, for instance, it 
backed every case brought “by 
parents. 

Mr Chris Patten, Minister 
of State for Education, said 
that if the committee was good 
enough to hear school admis- 
sion cases, it was good enough 
to hear appeals by school 
governors and parents on 
expelled pupils. 

The new procedure would 
help in cases where parents 
felt that a pupil's point of view 
had not teen considered and 
that the pupil had been ex- 
pelled unjustly. 

Labour MPs are worried 
that the Bill, designed to give 
parents and governing bodies 
more say in the running of 
schools, will lead to a sharp 
rise in expulsions. 

They also complained that 
the new scheme for appeals 
was too complicated. Mr 
Mark Fisher, Labour MP for 
Stoke-on-Trent Central, said 
he did not want to see 
"dustbin units" being set up 
again in problem inner-city 
schools to cope with unruly 
children. 

Mr Patten yielded to pres- 
sure from MPs on the com- 
mittee by agreeing there 
should be a five-day “cooling- 
off period, after a disruptive 
pupil was sent home, before 
local education authorities 
were informed of the head's 
action. 


Trophy 
offer to 
Branson 

The Staffordshire company 
which supplied the original 

- . Hales Blue Riband Trophy 

offered yesterday to provide 
Mr Richard Branson with a 
' ; new one for his record-break- 
. ing Atlantic crossing. 

Mr Neale Harrison, head of 
Piddnck's jewellers in Hanley, 
Stoke-on-Trent, and great 
grandson of the company’s 

• founder, said that although 

• Mr Branson should not receive 
the original award, first pre- 
sented in 1935, “he should be 
handsomely rewarded for his 
efforts". 

y Wedgwood, the north Staf- 

• fords hire porcelain manufac- 

- turers, has also offered to 
design a special Blue Riband 

• • trophy to console Mr Branson. 

The American Merchant 
Marine Museum at King’s 
Point Long Island, New York, 
has refused to hand over the 
••• original 4 ft gold and silver 
trophy to Mr Branson. 

Mr Frank Brayward, the 
■ j museum's curator, claims that 
; - when the British businessman 
Harold Hales donated the 
trophy for the Blue Riband 
holder in 1935, he meant it to 
go to passenger liners and not 
to “little toy boats". 

He said United States 
Lines, which owned the pas- 
senger liner United States, 
which set the previous record 
in 1952, was prepared to go to 
court to keep the trophy in the 
United States. 

But Mr Branson said yes- 
terday in London he was not 
worried that the museum re- 
fused to give him the trophy. 

He said about 20 companies 
had kindly offered to make 
trophies for the crew. 

"We will have a crew meet- 
ing in London on Thursday 
and make a decision then", he 
added. 


Hattersley 
switch on 
borrowing 

By Richard Evans 

Political Correspondent 

A Labour government 
would urge nationalized in- 
dustries to seek investment 
from the private and public 
sectors, Mr Roy Hattersley, 
Labour's deputy leader, an- 
nounced yesterday. 

The dramatic switch in 
policy. likely to surprise many 
on the left of the party, was 
outlined in a speech to the 
annual conference of the Na- 
tional Union of Raihvaymen. 

Mr Hattersley said much 
needed increases in expendi- 
ture on the rail network, which 
would help to preserve and 
create jobs, “need not, and 
should not, come exclusively 
from the public purse. 

“Railway electrification is 
an extremely profitable enter- 
prise with a high return on 
investment. It should be at- 
tractive to private investors. 

“To provide the freedom to 
do this, we will relax British 
Rail's external financing 
limits." Mr Hattersley said 
that nationalized industries 
had a record of higher invest- 
ment than private industry 
which had resulted in a far 
higher productivity. 

“So nationalized industry 
borrowing should be under- 
taken in response to commer- 
cial needs and be treated like 
private company borrowing. 
That happens in countries like 
Sweden and Italy where there 
are far larger public sectors.” 

Mr Hattersley, speaking in 
Weston-super-Mare, insisted 
thatsuch “freedom” should 
not be interpreted as an 
abandonment of Labour’s 
commitment to equating so- 
cial objectives and financial 
prudence within BR. 


Scargill 

suffers 

further 

rebuff 

By Tim Jones 
The dream of McArthur 

of Mineworkcrs, 
of a new surge of militancy 
leading to a strike against pit 
closures suffered another hu- 
miliating set-back yesterday. 

Already jolted by the reac- 
tion to his warnings on Mon- 
day that the anion would have 
to prepare for a strike, the 
motion on pay, to be discussed 
today at the union's annual 
conference at Tenby, Dyfed, 
has been amended to leave out 
any threat of industrial action. 

The original motion, pro- 
posed by the Yorkshire area, 
called on the membership to be 
consulted about industrial ac- 
tum if the demand for £120 a 
week basic pay for surface 
workers was not met 
But all reference to industri- 
al action has been removed 
from the motion to be dis- 
cussed today which is a com- 
posite of proposals from 
Yorkshire, Midlands and 
South Wales areas. 

Instead, the debate today 
wfll seek merely to instruct the 
delegates to call a special 
conference to discuss the posi- 
tion if the demand for the 
increase — which, amounts to 
an extra £14 a week — is not 
met. 

Mr Jack Taylor, president 
of the Yorkshire area, said: 
We could not get agreement 
so we agreed to leave oat the 
passage relating to industrial 
action in order to achieve 
unity". 

That is a dear message to 
Mr Scargill that his plea for a 
strike has fallen on stoney 
ground. 

Left-wing and moderate 
area leaders alike were still 
seething yesterday at their 
president who they accused of 
being oat of touch with the 
mood of die men. 

After their long and punish- 
ing strike there is clearly no 
mood in the coalfields to 
embark on another dispute so 
soon after their defeat 
The fact that Mr Scargill 
believes that the strike was 
successful is worrying many of 
the members of the onion. 

One area leader said yester- 
day: "A majority of the execu- 
tive now believe be is becoming 
an embarrassment to the union 
because of his fail ore to ac- 
knowledge reality. 

“ft is unlikely there will be 
any move to oust him as that 
would only provide ammuni- 
tion for our enemies. But we 
will certainly strive to control 
his actions." 

Sanctions plea by 
South Africans 

Two South African black 
trade union leaders, thought to 
have been detained during the 
state of emergency, addressed 
the miners’ conference yester- 
day and made a plea for 
economic sanctions to be im- 
posed against their country. 

Although they face instant 
arrest and punishment, Mr 
Janies Motolatsi, president of 
the South African National 
Union of Mine workers, and 
Mr Cyril Ramaphosa, general 
secretory, intend to return 
after they have met Mr Neil 
Kinnock and the Shadow 
Cabinet 

In a highly charged and 
emotional appearance, the two 
men described tbe plight of 
black workers in their country. 

When the state of emergen- 
cy began they had avoided 
detention by hiding in safe 
houses and later bad slipped 
out of the country unnoticed. 

Mr Motolatsi said: "We say 
here and now that sanctions 
against South Africa will nev- 
er hurt ns because we own 
nothing. We have nothing to 
lose. We have suffered for 
more than 300 years and we 
are still suffering now."

Tebbit in 
attack on 
BBC over 
S Africa 

By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

Mr Norman Tebbit, the 
Conservative Party chairman, 
delivered a thinly veiled at- 
tack on BBC coverage of the 
South African emergency yes- 
terday as he launched his 
party's campaign in the New- 
castle-under-Lyme by- 

election. 

. He suggested that the corpo- 
ration was out of step with 
public opinion and devoting 
too much time to events in 
that country and arguments 
over sanctions. 

“I think the comments of 
people in this constituency 
and in most of Britain about 
sanctions will be strongest if 
they find they Jose theirjobs as 
a result of sanctions.” 

No sooner had Mr Jim 
Nock, aged 51, a Kent hoteljer 
and leader of Canterbury City 
Council pronounced a mora- 
torium on “knocking" his 
opponents, than Mr Tebbit 
weighed in by saying the by- 
election was unnecessary. 

It was called for July 17 
after Mr John Golding, La- 
bour member for 18 years, 
resigned to become General 
Secretary of the National 
Communications Union. His 
wife Llin. aged S3, is the 
Labour candidate.

Jesuit enters fray 
for women priests 

By Clifford Longley, Religions Affairs Correspondent 


The Vatican's arguments 
against women priests rest 
upon a non sequiiur, a distin- 
guished Jesuit theologian said 
yesterday. 

Father Robert Butterworth 
SJ. head of religious studies at 
the Roehampton Institute, 
London, described the case 
put by Cardinal Johannes 
Willebrands to the Archbish- 
op of Canterbury, Dr Robert 
Runcie, in letters published on 
Monday, as “a certain Conti- 
nental kind of sacerdotal 
piety." 

He said the male-female 
imagery proposed by the car- 
dinal for God's relationship 
with the church was valid, but 
“it did not follow" that wom- 
en could not be priests. 

Father Butterworth added 
that there was wide agreement 
among Roman.Catholic theo- 


yesterday given by the (Angli- 
can) Movement for the Ordi- 
nation of Women. 

The Vatican's letters came 

from “a different planet 
altogether” from Dr Runcie's. 
Behind the disagreement over 
women priests was a radical 
difference concerning the way 
priests “represented” Christ in 
the church, he said. 

The General Synod of the 
Church of England has a 
crucial debate on legislation 
which would permit women 
priests next Tuesday, and the 
publication of the letters has 
been seized upon by both 
sides. 

The Association for the 
Apostolic Ministry, which op- 
poses .women priests, said: 
“Allmembeis recognize that 
the comments of Cardinal 


logians that the case against Willebrands on the arguments 
women priests was not set forth by the Archbishop of

Hall defends his 
outside activities 

By Gavin Bell, Arts Correspondent 


Sir Peter Hall, head of the 
National Theatre, is to join 
MrTrevor Nunn, his counter- 
part at the Royal Shakespeare 
Company, in sueing The Sun- 
day Times for what he regards 
as a scurrilous and inaccurate 
article that was "deliberately 
set up to discredit both of us”. ‘ 
Sir Peter yesterday denied 
allegations by the newspaper 
that both artistic directors had 
taken advantage of their posi- 
tions to become multi-mil- 
lionaires. and had shown a 
lack of commitment to their 
subsidized institutions. 

He also defended the 
present system of negotiating 
individual deals for the trans- 
fer of productions from subsi- 
dized to commercial theatres 
as an effective and honourable 
method that benefited every- 
one concerned. 

He had no intention of 
resigning and be had not 
amassed a personal fortune 
from transferring successful 


productions from the Nation- 
al to the commercial sector, he 
said. His only assets, apart 
from his £50.000 salary from 
the NT. were a small house in 
Chelsea and about £75,000 in 
the bank. 

He had bought the property 
from the £720 ,000 he had 
earned so for from the com- 
mercial exploitation of 
Amadeus. 

Speaking on behalf of Mr 
Nunn, he said: “Everything 
we do is vetted by our boards, 
and everything the boards do 
is vetted by the Arts Council. I 
have never concealed any- 
thing from my board." 

Sir Peter, in an implied 
criticism of the council and of 
Mr Richard Luce, Minister for 
the Arts, said: "It’s a set up, 
there’s no question of that. I'm 
not saying that the Minister' 
and the Arts Council set it up. 
but they are certainly taking 
advantage of what is hap-' 
pening.”

New tactics 
by pickets 
bring chaos 

Twenty-two pickets were 
arrested for public order of- 
fences outside the News Inter- 
national plant at Wapping, 
east London, yesterday, after a 
demonstration by more than 
400 brought chaos to the area. 

Deputy Assistant Commis- 
sioner Wyn Jones, in charge of 
police in the east end of 
London, said: “This is a 
change of tactics, flooding the 
area with demonstrators with- 
out notice of intent and caus- 
ing major disruption, and 
tying up large numbers of 
police for hours. It is totally 
irresponsible." 

Mr Eric Hammond, leader 
of the electricians’ union 
EETPU. is expected to report 
to Mr Norman Willis, general 
secretary of the TUC. today 
on his weekend talks with Mr 
Rupert Murdoch. 

Mr Hammond and MrTom 
Rice, the union's national 
secretary responsible for the 
printing industry, relumed to 
Britain yesterday after reopen- 
ing talks with Mr Murdoch in 
Los Angeles. 

The EETPU has urged Mr 
Murdoch to start another 
round of negotiations with the 
print unions over the dismiss- 
al of 5.500 striking prim 
workers. 


Paisley’s ‘civil war’ retreat 


Seven days after loudly 
proclaiming that Northern 
Ireland was “on the veq»e of 
civil war", the Rev Ian Paisley 
yesterday said the threat had 
receded. 

Mr Paisley used the defeat 
of the divorce referendum in 
the. Irish Republic as the 
reason for his public retreat 
from his apocalyptic vision 
that the province could be in a 
situation where there was 
“hand to hand” street fighting. 

The defeat, the Democratic 
Unionist Party leader 
said.meant that the British 
Government would no longer 
be pushing Northern Ireland . 


By Richard Ford 

vigorously down the united 
Ireland road. 

His reasoning was seen less 
charitably and with some 
relish -by others within the 
Unionist community who sus- 
pect that his rapid change of 
tune hasmore to do with his 
isolation and the ridicule that 
met his original claim. The 
largest Protestant paramilitary 
organization, the Ulster De- 
fence Association, quickly dis- 
tanced itself from Mr Paisley, 
saying that civil disobedience 
was the way to defeat the 
Anglo-Irish Agreement. 

Mr James Molyneaux. lead- 
er of the Official Unionists. 


was content to leave his 
colleague out on his own, 
cryptically remarking that 
skirmishing units added col- 
our to a battle but the confi- 
dence that won war came only 
from steady, cool-headed 
guidance. 

Mr Paisley said yesterday. 
“I believe the referendum has 
brought us back from the 
brink because, if it had been a 
success, I believe the British 
Government would have been 
pushing us with more vigour 
down the united Ireland road 
and a civil war, which I 
believe was in hand, has 
receded because of that." 


UDR soldiers get life for murder 


Four soldiers in the Ulster 
Defence Regiment were jailed 
for life yesterday at Belfast 
Crown Court for the sectarian 
murder of a Roman Catholic 
while on duty in Northern 
Ireland. 

But the “mastermind" be- 
hind ihe plot to kill Mr Adrian 
Carroll, aged 24. a member of 
a prominent Republican fam- 
ily. is still free as police were 
unable to get sufficient evi- 
dence. 

Mr Carroll was shot dead at 


point blank range in Armagh 
City in November 1983 as he 
walked home from work. 

The convicted men. based 
at Dnimadd Barracks in Ar- 
magh. were Private Neil Lati- 
mer. aged 24. Private Noel 
Bell, aged 22. both of Armagh, 
Lance Corporal James Hegan, 
aged 35. of Newry. Co Down 
and Private Alfred .Allen, aged 
25. of Loughall, Co Armagh. 

They had denied murder 
and possessing firearms with 
intent. With the exception of 


Alien they received concur- 
rent 14-year sentences on the 
second charge. 

Lord Justice Basil Kelly 
yesterday criticized serving 
members of the regiment who 
had given evidence in the trial. 
He said: "The contents of the 
evidence of the Army witness- 
es leads me to the firm 
conclusion that some witness- 
es had got together to distort 
true events and present the 
resul is as evidence to the court 
for the sole purpose of assist- 
ing the accused.” 


Spy trial 
jury is 
shown tiny 
equipment 

By Stewart Temfler 
Crime Reporter . 

A piece of "spy equipment" 
the size of a postage stamp was 
shown to the Central Criminal 
Court yesterday as Special 
Branch detectives described 
searching the home of an East 
German couple accused of 
espionage. 

Reinhard Schulze, aged 33, 
and his wife Sonja. aged 36, 
have denied chaiges under tbe 
Official Secrets Act. The cou- 
ple deny preparing to pass on 
information, ’ while Mr 
Schulze denies a charge in- 
volving an application for a 
British passport and Mrs 
Schulze denies a. charge in- 
volving a West German iden- 
tity caro. 

Yesterday the court -was 
told that the couple's home in 
Waye Avenue. Cranford, west 
London, was searched for 
more than a month after their 
arrest last August. Hundreds 
of sacks of material were 
removed. - 

Detective Constable An- 
drew Williams told the court 
that he found a collection of 
spy equipment taped inside an 
air freshener in a garden shed. 
The court has been told the 
equipment included material 
used to encode messages into 
figures for communications. 

Mr Williams said that in- 
side the lid of the air freshener 
he found three little plastic 
wallets which contained pa- 
pers. Jwo had German words 
written on them set against a 
list of figures, and the third 
contained a paper with print- 
ed figures. He showed the 
court one of the papers, about 
the size of a large postage 
stamp. 

Mr Williams said that he 
also found two “escape kits” 
containing a false British pass- 
port for a man, a West 
German identity card for a 
woman and cash. 

Mr Albert Ferris. Mr 
Schulze's landlord when he 
rented a flat in Hounslow, 
west London, told the court 
that he always had a key to Mr 
Schulze’s flat. He had become 
friendly with Mr Schulze, who 
was quiet and seemed to have 
no visitors. 

The case continues today. 


Stalker 
protest on 
suspension 

. By Peter Davenport 

The independent Police 
Complaints Authority yester- 
day approved the formal sus- 
pension on full pay of Mr John 
Stalker. Deputy Chief Consta- 
ble of Greater Manchester. 

It may now take until 
September to complete the 
investigation into allegations 
that Mr Stalker, aged 47. kept 
unwise associations with 
criminals. 

The decision was an- 
nounced at a press conference, 
which led to a complaint from 
lawyers representing Mr Stalk- 
er. who said it was "regrettable 
in ihe extreme" that Mr 
Stalker had not been personal- 
ly told of his suspension. 

It was made clear yesterday 
that Mr Stalker had offered to 
attend the police authority 
meeting to explain his side of 
the case, but the offer was not 
accepted 

There was also a dispute 
yesterday over a statement by 
Norman Briggs, the Labour 
chairman of the Greater Man- 
chester Police Authority, that 
Mr Stalker had been made 
aware of the complaints 
against him since May 29. the 
first day of the investigation 
by Mr Colin Sampson, Chief 
Constable of West Yorkshire. 
Mr Stalker denies this.

Sellafield’s hard sell 


Nuclear plant lures tourists 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 
The Seilafield nuclear pow- runs Sellafield, is its biggest answer to their criticisms. 

attempt at winning support for 


er station, described earlier 
this year as “the largest 
recorded source of radioactive 
discharge in the world", has 
set its sights on becoming a big 
tourist attraction. 

Eight million invitation 
cards are to be sent out to lure 
visitors to the Cambria plant, 
which a House of Commons 
environment committee called 
“a by-word for the dirty end of 
the industry in the nuclear 
world". 

In an effort to dean np its 
image, SellaficdaL, formerly 
Windscale. is being pictured in 
lush Lake District surround- 
ings in a £2 million television 
and press advertising cam- 
paign starting tomorrow. 

Tbe campaign bas been 
devised by tbe Young and 
Rubicsra advertising agency, 
whose talents have helped sell 
such products as Heinz foods, 
Colgate toothpaste, Adidas 
sportswear and Kodak films. 

The campaign by British 
Nuclear Fuels (BNFLk which 


nuclear energy in Britain, after 
suffering a long series of 
public relations setbacks. 

It has been involved in 
numerous controversies over 
safety after leaks of radioac- 
tivity from the site. 

The nuclear industry was 
criticized by the ■ Commons' 
environment committee for its 
"defensive secretiveaess" and 
was urged to be “more open 
and forthright in all its 
affairs" by the MPs. 

Mr Christopher Harding, 
chairman of BNFL, launched 
the campaign, at a reception in 
London, with English wine 
and Cumbrian sausages. He 
said: “Our advertising is say- 
ing to the public that in effect 
our door is open. We have 
nothing to hide." 

He added that the company 
had decided to promote 
Sellafield before the MPs 
published their report last 
March. “We feel that what we 
are now doing is a very good 


About 30,000 people a year 
already visit Sellafield and the 
company expects at least twice 
as many visitors next year. 
They will be given conducted 
bus tours of the plant and

size nuclear power station, 
CaJder Hall, opened by the 
Queen 30 years ago. 

Visitors can also tom an 
exhibition centre, which has 
working models of the plant, 
computer games and video 
presentations. 

The eight million invitations 
are being attached to double- 
page advertisements that will 
appear in Sunday newspaper 
colour supplements. 

Mr David Miller, of Young 
and Rubkam, acknowledged 
yesterday that selling 
Sellafield posed special diffi- 
culties. “it has taken us 12 
months to develop this style of 
campaign. We are trying to 
build more positive public 
attitudes about nuclear 
power."

A^ mother who believed in 
: .witchcraft ‘ and ' 'voodoo was 
.;@yed two. life sentences at. the 
Central Criminal Court yes- 
‘ ttK&y-fof the “hideous" mur- 
ders of ■■her daughter anfl. a 
neighbour’s Child 
’ After del iberali eras* lasting 
two hours, the jury found Mrs 
; Mirella Beechook, aged 26, 
guilty- ofthe murder of Tina 
. Beechook, aged 7, and Stacey 
K^vanagh, aged 4, last 
..September. 

Sir James Miskin, QC, Re- 
-corder of London, told 
; Beechook that in the ordinary 
.'bourse he would have recom- 
7 mended a minimum period 
. .'which she should serve. But he 
■ was certain that die Home 
: r -Secretary would not sanction 
v her release until she was no 
Monger a danger to the public, 
l and children in particular. 

He . said that the jury 
; “sensibly” had not accepted 
7Beechook's admissions ip 
manslaughter on the grounds 

- of diminished responsibility. 

There was uncontradicted 
evidence from psychiatrists 
7 that at the^ime of die killings 
her mind iwas abnormal but 
7 the jury concluded that her 
: responsibility was not dimin- 
-'- ished. Sir James added. 

Earlier, social workers told 
.. the court how Beechook had 
tried to poison her younger 

- baby.. Sabrina, with sleeping 
7 tablets six years before she 
■ : strangled her daughter, Tina, 
7 arid the child’s friend, Stacey 
•- Kavanagh. 

7- ..Although Sabrina, then 
I aged only 22 days, was taken 
from herafter the poisoning in 


1979 and later adopted,- social 
workers in the London Bor- 
ough of Southwark allowed 
Beechook to keep Tina be- 
cause they believed the child, 
then -15 months old, would 
help to stabilize her parents’ 

. marriage, 

Tina was placed on the “at 
risk” register of the social 
services department- and a 
close watch kept on the fam- 
ily. But in 1982 she was 
removed from the register. 

• The last few weeks of her 
life were spent shoplifting and 
begging, for money on the 
Swan Road Estate - in 
Rotherhithe, south London, 
where she. and her mother 
lived. 

Mr Ravi Beechook, Tina's 
father, who left the family 
home two years ago, blamed 
social workers for her death. 

Mr Beechook, aged 30, an 
insurance salesmen now living 
in Stratford, east London, 
said; “If they had kept a 



MireDa Beechook, who 
believed In voodoo. 


tighter grip on the case she 
might not have died.” 

But the social services de- 
partment said there was no 
teason to believe that Mrs 
Beechook would harm the 
other' child at the time of the 
incident with Sabrina. “Tina 
was well cared for and there 
was no suggestion of any 
abuse.” 

Caring agencies who contin- 
ued to visit the Beechook flat 
reported no agn of ill-treat- 
ment of Tina. And her school. 
Albion Primary, reported no 
problems. 

The attempt on Sabrina's 
life came after an incident 
when she had been readmit- 
ted to hospital with gastro- 
enteritis. 

Staff became suspicious 
when they found the end of a 
pin in the baby’s nappy after 
her mother had visited. A 
blood test, two days later, 
showed sleeping pills in 
Sabrina's body. 

Beechook claimed that she 
h»H been told in a dream to 
harm the child, and alleged 
that Mr Beecfaook’s old girl 
friend was putting the “evil 
eye” on her and placing ideas 
in her mind. 

Beechook came to Britain in 
1974 from Mauritius, an is- 
land in the Indian Ocean, 
where voodoo remains a pow- 
erful force. 

Beechook's doctor did not 
know whether to believe her 
when she claimed to have 
visions of knives and blood 
and attributed them to fears 
about her marriage and to her 
cultural background.

Minister 
warns of 
‘remedial

By Lucy Hodges 
Education Co 


Correspondent 
The danger of Britain be^ 
coming “a remedial society” 
in which children have to be 
re-taught basic skills, was 
outlined last night by Mr 
George Walden, minister re- 
sponsible for higher 
education.

Police marksman trial 


-Reflex response’ training 

By Craig Seton 

negligent when he intentional- 
ly fired his .38 magnum Smith 


7 Police marksmen were 
trained to fire immediately 
_ they identified a target as a 
threat and if they made a 
1' mistake 1 “problems could 
arise”, a government expert 
told the trial of a policeman 
accused of shooting and kill- 
ing a boy aged 'five in his bed. 

• On the second day of the 
* trial of Police Constable Brian 
Chester at Stafford Crown 
Court Mr Thomas Warlow, a 
Home Office forensic scien- 
list said; “If they do-not trufy 
‘identify the nature of their 
„ target a problem canjaccur- 
- ■ PC _CbeS$r\v of* Leek' 
' Wootton, Warwickshire, iff; 
member of the- West Midlands ; 

tactical firearms squad, denies 
;■ the. manslaughter of John 
' Sborthpiise during a dawn 
Z nad oh the boy's home in 
King's Norton, Birmingham, 
last August- 

The prosecution has alleged 
" that PC Chester was grossly 


and Wesson revolver, killing 
the boy almost instantly. 

The marksman, described 
as an “ideal” officer, insisted 
in statements to the police that 
he did not see the boy hidden 
under a blanket as he searched 
his bedroom and could not 
explain why his gun had gone 
off 

Mr Warlow told the court 
that police marksmen, partic- 
ularly specialist officers, “are 
subject to a great deal of 
’framing which calls for last 
:reponse shooting at rapidly 
presented targets. A response 
'system is .built into their 
bodies which allows them to 
engage targets very rapidly 
and enables them to puli the 
trigger very rapidly.” 

Cross-examined by Mr Des- 
mond Fennell, QC, for the 
prosecution, he agreed that be 
was drawing a distinction 


between an accidental dis- 
charge and a reflex response. 

He said that there were no 
circumstances in which PC 
Chester’s revolver could have 
fired accidentally when he 
stooped down to look under 
the bed. In the “double action 
mode” the trigger would have 
required 81b Uoz of pressure 
to be activated. 

Mr David Gordon, former- 
ly chief inspector in charge of 
firearms training in the West 
Midlands who taught PC 
Chester, said that marksmen 
were taught quick reactive 
firing at some target or threat 
which presented itseffi and in 
those circumstances two shots 
would be fired. • 

He said that if an officer 
fired without identifying his 
target as a threat “he would be 
remiss". ' 

Mr Gordon said that in 
spite of all their training, the 
human element 


Europe is to be cut by 4p to 
match the new first-class letter 
rate of 1 8p. 

Both first and second class 
stamps are being increased by 
a penny from October - sec- 
ond class letters returning to 
the 13p rate of last November, 
the Post Office announced 
yesterday. 

The increases come in spite 
of Post Office profits of £1 33.7 
million on the postal service 
in 1984-85, the last published 
figures. The latest profits, for 
1985-86, which are due to be 
published this month, show a 
similar profit level for post 

The Post Office will formal- 
ly notify the postal consumer 
watchdog, the Post Office 
Users' National Council 
(POUNC), of the changes 
today. 

The Post Office will discuss 


held in two weeks. It hopes to 
reach a decision by the end of 
the month on whether to 
approve the price rises. 

The users' council is due to 
publish its own annual report 
on the performance ofthe Post 
Office at the end .of the month. 

According to a council state- 
ment “the council will now 
consult widely with consumer 
bodies and other organiza- 
tions and also look closely at 
the Post Office's arguments 
and justification for the many 
detailed proposed changes". 

Sir Ronald Dearing, chair- 
man of the Post Office, said 
yesterday: “The increases are 
designed to help the Post 
Office continue 
profitability.” 

The Post Office has a profit 
target, set by the Government, 
of 4.8 per cent on turnover. 


An Admiralty investigation 
was launched yesterday to find 
out how a coaster ran into 
Southend Pier, slicing the 
Essex tourist attraction in two. 

The sludge ship. Kings Ab- 
bey, was on its nay to damp a 
cargo of sugar and borax waste 
when it rammed the far end of 
the 2,158 ft pier about 7.15pm 
on Monday. 

The coaster ran aground 
and was stuck for half an how 
before being towed free, leav- 
ing a 40 ft hole at the bead of 
the pier, which is the longest in 
the world. 

Several people who were on 
the pier at the time had to be 
evacuated, but no one was 
Injured. 

The Mr Frank 

Boyd, of Bexley Heath, in 
Kent, was later interviewed by 
police. The ship went on to 
deliver Hs cargo before dock- 
ing at the Behreder Ferry, in

repair the pier.

told educational technologists 
in Brighton. 

Special classes may have to 
be laid on for the first-year 
university student whose En-

should be. 

By contrast the independent 
schools, accounting for about 
6 per cent of all pupils, pro- 
duce 25 per cent of all stu- 
dents in higher education, and 
more ihan half in some of 
Britain’s best universities. 

This situation was getting 
worse, Mr Walden said. In 
some cases 70 or 80 per cent of 
students in university depart- 
ments are from private 
schools-. “That way lies social 
suicider* 

Whatever the neglect of the 
past, education was now at 
centre stage. Mr Walden said. 
“Don't ask how it got there. 
Just be thankful, as I am, that 
it has. And remember that it 
would never have happened 
without Sir Keith Joseph.” 

Mr Walden praised the 
University Grants Committee 
for its selectivity exercise 
whereby it ranked university 
departments for the quality of 
their research. He said this 
was a “dynamic” reform. 

Higher education was ex- 
panding at an unprecedented 
rate, he added. “Talk about

By.Mark Dowd 
- Confusion reigned in some 
optkums 1 stores yesterday on 
die first day of the Gov- 
ennaent's spectacle voucher 
scheme. . _ _ 

‘ The scheme marks the final 
stage of plans to introduce 
greater competition into the 
spectacles market. f - 
Four groups are eligib le 
under the new voucher system: 
those on supplementary bene- 
fit, children under 16, students 
under 19 in full-time education 
and those who require com- 
plex and expensive lenses. 

Patients in these groups are 
handed a voucher form on 
which the optician inserts 
letter code, from six cboices. 
TSis code indicates the moae- 
tary value of the voucher, 
which can range; f™” 1 . £14 - ^

ing on the complexity ©f the

But several ophthalmic opte- 
. yesterday expressed dis- 
i s atisfacti on with the way the 
' transition had been handled. 

Although welcoming the 
-thrust of the reposals, 
spokesman from ChadbEras 
of Sheffield said that he tad 
only received details of fife©

One optician, from a district

Harvest of death 
reaped on farms 


By John Young, Agriculture Correspondent 
A horrifying picture of dan- executive’s chief agricultural 


ger and death on the farm was 
presented yesterday by the 
Health and Safety Executive. 

Between 1981 and 1984 
nearly 400 people were killed 
in accidents and a further 82 
died la*t year, 1 5 more than in 
the previous year. The victims 
ranged from a girl of two who 
was fatally scalded by a bucket 
of boiling water while watch- 
ing some calves being fed, to a 
man of 76 who was impaled 
on a pitchfork- 

A contributory factor to the 
accident rate .could be that, 
under pressure to cut costs, 
fanners were tempted to cut 
comers, Mr Carl Boswell, the 


farm DEATHS 1975-85 



inspector, said. 

On many farms there were 
still Victorian working condi- 
tions which would not be 
tolerated for one moment in 
other industries. 

“Attitudes must change « 
we are to stop this carnage," 
Mr Boswell said. “It really is 
about time that farmers took 
safety seriously. 

“Everyone involved in agn- 
culture must wake up to the 
feet that they are working in 
the second most dangerous 
industry, after construction, m 
the country.” 

The report is the result of a 
detailed study of fetal acci- 
dents over four years. 

The causes ranged from 
overturning vehicles to elec- 
trocution. and from drowning 
to diseases contracted from 
livestock. 

Among the cases are a 
fanner's wife killed by a blade 
which flew off a rotary mower, 
a ferm worker buned alive 
under ten tonnes of silage.

PARLIAMENT JULY 1 1986 


Thatcher rejects immediate threats 


Sanctions will not bring about change 


SOUTH AFRICA 

Sanctions had never been 
known lo bring about internal 
Change. Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister, 
declared in the Commons in 
replying to a charge from Mr 
Neil Kinnock, Leader of the 
Opposition, that she was the 
appeaser of apartheid. He con- 
tended that the actions of the 
Prime Minister, had added 
hugely to the magnitude of the 
task facing Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
the Foreign Secretary, on his 
visit to South Africa. 

Mrs Thatcher, being questioned 
after her statement on last 
week's meeting of the European 
Council at The Hague, said the 
decision taken last week on 
South Africa was the decision of 
12 countries of the Community. 
Thcv were united on the de- 
cision. The approach remained 
to promote peaceful change in 
South Africa and the mission of 
the Foreign Secretary was aimed 
at. that objective. 

It is one supported by all 12 
countries of the European 
Community (she went on) and 
should be supported by every 
member of this House. 

Mrs Thatcher pointed out that 
the last Labour Government 
was against sanctions and so 
were the governments in power 
ofthe 12 nations of the Commu- 
nity. The Deputy Leader of the 
Opposition (Mr Roy Hattersley) 
was against sanctions. Sanctions 
in Rhodesia had not brought 
about internal change; the mat- 
ter had had to be resolved by 
negotiation. 

The Foreign Secreatary is 
going to try to help to resolve the 
matter by negotiation (she said) 
and alt people of good will will 
wish him well. 

She said the European Coun- 
cil adopted a positive and 
constructive approach to the 
bitterly difficult problem of 
South Africa. We are well aware 
(she added) of the magnitude of 
the task facing Sir Geoffrey 
Howe in the mission on which 
he embarks. But all who genu- 
inely want a peaceful solution 
wjli'wish him well. 

Mr Kinnock said it was shame- 
ful that Mrs Thatcher was 
continuing her Nassau habit of 
participating in an agreement at 
a heads of government con- 
ference and using the first press 
conference afterwards to rat on 
the agreement 

The Eminem Persons Group 
had provided a dear view that 
the Botha regime was not pre- 
pared to negotiate fundamental 
change, had moved consciously 
away from any realistic nego- 
tiating position and moved 
away from the process of lifting 
bans. The group had concluded 
they could see no merit in 
further discussion and that the 
government of South Africa had 
made it impossible for them to 
proceed further. 

What in the mere four weeks 
since the group report had 
changed in South Africa other 


than two further acts of tyran- 
nical legislation, totalitarian 
controls on reporting, thou- 
sands more detentions and dis- 
appearances and 100 more 
violent deaths? 

He went on; Why does the 
Prime Minister believe that the 
Foreign Secretary can succeed in 
pleading where so many others 
have signally failed over the last 
few. years? The absence of 
sanctions defers change and 
accelerates the descent Into 
violence. 

Her resistance to action does 
not reduce violence; it makes it 
even more certain both inside 
South Africa and against the 
neighbouring slates of South 
Africa. The mission of Sir 
Geoffrey Howe might be more 
fruitful if she - did not have her 
record as an appeaser of apart- 
heid. 





Farr. Sanctions strength- 
ened Rhodesia's economy 

She has ensured by that 
record that she is seen as 
nothing more iban a gloved 
puppet without even the 
weapon of warnings of sanctions 
to back up the views ofthe EEC 

If the atrocities of apartheid 
were being committed by a 
black minority against a white 
majority, would Mrs Thatcher 
be responding to that horror and 
injustice bv obstruction and 
evasion as she was at present? 

In her statement, Mrs 
Thatcher said the European 
Council reaffirmed that the goal 
of the i 2 members of the EEC 
was total abolition of apartheid. 
The agreed programme of finan- 
cial and material assistance to 
the vicitims of apartheid meant 
that the United Kingdom would 
be making available a further 
£15 million over five years 
mainly for education and train- 
ing of non-white South Africans 
and additional help for trans- 
port projects in neighbouring 
states. This was in addition to 
the £22 million Britain was 
already giving. 

The European Council had 
called for the opening without 
delay of negotiations between 
the South African Government 
and leaders of the black people 
in South Africa. 

Sir Peter Tapsell (Lindsey East. 
Q; In view of Britain's unique 
position of being simulta- 
neously a member of the Se- 
curity Council the General 


Assembly, the EEC. the 
Commonwealth and the Anglo- 
American alliance, it is well 
placed to play a constructive 
role in advising South Africa. 

The Prime Minister is wise to 
continue as she is in this long 
historic process to retain room 
for manoeuvre to negotiate at 
this stage rather than indulging 
in the empty posturing of some 
ofthe Opposition. 

Mrs Thatcher Yes. Mandatory 
sanctions were applied on 
Rhodesia for nearly 15 years 
and they did not bring about 
internal change. How much 
better . to try to embark on 
negotiations now and to bind 
our e Sorts to persuading the 
South African Government 
That would be the wise way. 

Dr David Owen. Leader of the 
SDP; There is now widespread 
feeling in the Comonweaith and 
the rest of the industrialized 
countries that some sanctions 
need to be applied. The question 
is. what sanctions? 

Since the Prime Minister 
believes in negotiating from a 
position of strength with the 
Soviet Union, why does she 
believe in negotiating from a 
position of weakcncss with 
President Botha? 

Mrs Thatcher I do not believe 
we are negotiating from a po- 
sition of weakness. Certain mea- 
sures have been taken against 
South Africa; certain contin- 
gency plans indicated in the 
communique are being made. 

We are not negotiating from 
weakness but negotiating in the 
way which we believe will have 
the best chance of success. It will 
not work to go threatening 
immediately. We do not think 
that would help bring about 
negotiations between the South 
African Government and repre- 
sentatives of the black South 
African people which we desire. 
Mr Michael Grylls (Surrey 
North West, Ck If she were to 
take action with trade and 
industrial sanctions that would 
actually reduce jobs in Britain 
and amongst moderate blacks in 
South Africa, it would be a 
hypocritical position to follow. 

She should carry on the good 
work of encouraging South Af- 
rica to keep up the moratorium 
of internal reforms that have 
already started. 

Mrs Thatcher: If there were ever 
any question of going for total 
economic sanctions, it would 
cause more unemployment here 
and much unemployment in 
South Africa as well as fun- 
damental strategic problems, 
pulling supplies of raw materi- 
als into the hands of the Soviet 
Union and strategic defence 
problems, and it would not 
bring about the change which all 
wish to see. 

Mr Gay Barnett (Greenwich. 
Lab): As the Prime Minister 
regards economic sanctions as 
almost totally ineffective in 
putting pressure on the South 
African regime, why does she 
not recommend the use offeree? 
Mrs Thatcher I do not recom- 
mend the use of force; I recom- 
mend the use of negotiations, is 


. the use offeree now the policy of 
the Labour Party? 

Sir Ian Lloyd (Havant. Q: Did 
the Council at any time attempt 
to define precisely what it meant 
by the abolition of apartheid? 
Mrs Thatcher: Wc want to get 
rid of the appalling indignities 
black South Africans are made 
to suffer by virtue of the colour 
of their skin. 

The results of negotiating a 
new constitution with South 
Africa would be a matter for 
those taking pari in the 
negotiations. 

Mr Jack Ashley (Stoke-on- 
Trent South. Lab Y Does she foil 
or refuse to see the obvious 
parallel between the South Af- 
rican machine today and that in 
Germany in ihe mid- 1930s with 
its belief in no democracy, no 
free speech and repression? 

Mrs Thatcher: Not many accept 
that parallel. It sounds as if he 
wants us to embark on. force 
against South Africa. That may 
be the new Labour policy, it is 
not ours. 

Sir John Farr (Harborough, CY 
Not only did sanctions not work 
in Rhodesia, they actually 
strengthened ' that country's 
economy. 

Mrs Thatcher I believe that is 
so. There could be no way in 
which economic sanctions could 
work in South Africa with that 
enormous coastline and a 
considerable number of coun- 
tries and people who would 
bend all their efforts to do trade 
with South Africa which others 
would forgo. We would have 
more unemployment here only 
to see the jobs picked up 
elsewhere. 

Mr Edward Rowlands (Merthyr 
Tydfil and Rhymney. Laby. She 
has said there are two specific 
demands the Foreign Secretary 
has to make - the freedom of 
Nelson Mandella and the legiti- 
macy of the African National 
Congress. Will that be the 
Foreign Secretary's remit in 
South Africa? 

Mrs Thatcher Yes. in ac- 
cordance with the communique 
which said the European Coun- 
cil calls on the South African 
Government to release uncondi- 
tionally Nelson Mandella and 
other political prisoners and lift 
the ban on the ANC and other 
political parties. Many of us 
believe that is the key to getting 
the negotiations started. 

Mr Alan Beith (Berwick-upon- 
Tweed. Ly She answers all the 
questions about sanctions with a 
condemnation of general sanc- 
tions without reference to spe- 
cific sanctions. Is that accidental 
or is she leaving room for 
manoeuvre when the Foreign 
Secretary returns if he recom- 
mends selective sanctions? 

Mrs Thatcher So he is against 
general economic sanctions. We 
are getting somewhere. There 
are a number of selective sanc- 
tions already in place. When Mr 
Healey was in the Labour 
Government he wanted to sell 
defence weapons to South 
Africa. 

Mr Denis Healey, chief Oppo- 


sition spokesman on foreign and 
comonweaith affairs, who ms 
on the Labour front bench, 
shouted "No" and stood. There 
were loud shouts by Labour 
MPs, directed to Mrs Thatcher. 
of*Uarr . , 

Mrs Thatcher then continued; 
The Crossnum Dianes said that 
it was a matter of whether 
armaments should be sold to 
South Africa, which lh e then 
Prime Minister was verv much 
against. It went on:“ George 
Brown began the attack saying 
that though he realized ft was 
very painful one could not really 
go on being so unrealistic about 
the sale of arms. He was then 
supported by Denis Healey, who 
said one must surely make a 
distinction between arms which 
could be used for suppressing 
insurrection and strategic arms. 
He said we needed the Simons- 
lo wn base to be kept going by 
South Africa. . • . 

If Mr HeaJev denies that (she 

added) I am happy to accept his 
denial 

There was further Conser- 
vative laughter as Mr Healey 

remained seated. 

Mr William Hamilton (Central 
Fife. Lab): The great majority of 
British people and almost all 
members of the Commonwealth 
believe she is the greatest friend 
the West of the barbaric 



Barnett: Why not recom- 
mend use of force? 

government in South Africa. 
How does she hope to persuade 
the Commonwealth in August 
that she is on the right course? 
Mrs Thatcher: The mission the 
Foreign Secretary undertakes, to 
go to South Africa to try to 
establish conditions under 
which negotiations can be 
brought about- is in a way a 
continuation of the Nassau mis- 
sion which very nearly was 
successful. 

It is the wish of the 12 
countries of the European 
Community that the Foreign 
Secretary should go to represent 
them. 1 should have thought 
that would be a matter of pride 
for this country. 

Mr John Carlisle (Luton North, 
O declared that there would be 
a wide welcome for the brave 
initiative and lifeline that Mrs 
Thatcher had offered. 

It contrasted sharply with the 
Labour Party’s chief spokesman 
on foreign affairs (Mr Denis 


Healey) who was deliberate!* 1 
setting up violence and racial 
haired with his comments. 

Mr Thatcher agreed that the 
Opposition was behaving 
disgracefully in trying to under- 
mine the initiative. 

Mr Henrv Bellingham (Norfolk 
North West. C) referred to a 
recent poll which indicated that 
76 per cent of black people in 
South Africa were against the 
present violence. They agreed 
that the failure of the shadow 
foreign secretary. Mr Denis 
Healey, ro meet Chief ButheJczi 
was a gross omission and indic- 
ative of Mr Healey's bias and 
narrow-mindedness. 

Mrs Thatcher was certain that 
most people in South Africa 
were overwhelmingly against 
violence and wanted change to 
be brought about peacefully, 
with a successful economy. 

She agreed on the importance 
of Chief Buthelezi. who repre- 
sented the largest group of btiek 
South Africans — something like 
seven million Zulus. 

Mr Frank Field (Birkenhead. 
Lab) said Mrs Thatcher should 
refresh her memory over effec- 
tive sanctions: those die. Ameri- 
cans wanted to use against this 
country at the time of Suez, 
which brought about a reversal 
• of British policy within days. 
Mrs Thatcher said the positions 
were totally and utterly dif- 
ferent. (Labour laughter) South 
Africa had enormous internal, 
resources, agricultural and ma- 
terial She could go on keeping 
herself- and selling her goods, 
raw materials and finisheef prod- 
ucts through, third countries. 

Dr Oonafph McDonald (Thur- 
rock, Lab) told Mrs Thatcher 
that her actions at The Hague 
had bought time for herself, not 
South Africa. 

As a first step towards full 
economic sanctions,' financial 
sanctions on a debtor country 
like South Africa would push 
Pretoria to negotiate to bri 
about democracy. 

Mrs Thatcher said she was not 
sure precisely what Dr Mc- 
Donald was proposing, because 
South African retaliation on 
foreign resources there could 
give Pretoria enormous finan- 
cial benefits. 

•Earlier during question time, 
Mrs Thatcher raced other ques- 
tions on South Africa. Mr 
Douglas Hogg (Grantham. Q 
said that white there was consid- 
erable support ofor the Foreign 
Secretary on his mission, if the 
South African Government 
feiled to introduce major con- 
cessions as a result of that 
mission. MPs would like the 
Government to introduce addi- 
tional measures as a mark “of 
our great disapproval of what is 
going on in South Africa". 

Mrs Thatcher. We have already 
introduced some measures, first 
as a result of a former Commu- 
nity meeting and then as a result 
of the Commonwealth meeting. 

I am sure he will join with me in 
saying we hope the mission of 
Sir Geoffrey Howe as President 
of the 12 EEC countries will 
meet with success. 


Who will succeed Mrs 
Thatcher as Conservative 
leader? It is the favourite 
parlour game of British poli- 
tics, to which The Tims made 
its contribution earlier tilts 
week «ith a survey of the 
Conservative backbench in- 
take of 1983. 

Two caveats must be made 
about such a survey. It covers 
only the newcomers to the 
present Parliament, not the 
fall parliamentary party, who 
will make the choice when the 
time comes; and it is taken in 
cold blood. When it comes to 
the point many members may 
be affected by the mood at the 
time. 

But die 1983 intake was a 
relatively large one, represent- 
ing roughly a quarter of the 
current Conservative strength 
in the House of Commons. So 
there is a Special interest in 
noting the movement of opin- 
ion in this group. ' 

Tebbit’s health 
raises doubts 


Norman Tebbifs loss of 
support is not surprising. 
There are serious doubts over 
the. lasting effects of the 
Brighton bombing on his fit- 
ness for the highest office, and 
as chairman of the party he is 
the favourite scapegoat for by- 
election embarrassments. 

Michael Heseltine’s poor 
showing could also have been 
predicted. His resignation 
gravely damaged his chances 
of taking over from Mrs 
Thatcher - though not, I 
believe, of playing a signifi- 
cant role in Conservative poli- 
tics in the fotnre. 

One might well pick differ- 
entfavonntes, depending upon 
whether Mrs Thatcher goes 
daring the present Parliament, 
while the Conservatives are 
still in office, in the next 
Parliament or when the party 
is in opposition. 

If- the leadership were to 
become vacant before the gen- 
eral election, the party would 
be looking for someone who 
could steady the ship, unite tbe 
party and lead it to victory 
pretty quickly. 

The survey suggests that in 
those rircunstances Sir Geof- 
frey Howe and Peter Walker 
would be the two front-run- 
ners, and Sir Geoffrey is 
certainly ideally qualified to 
have a steadying and unifying 
influence. But I wonder wheth- 
er be would be regarded as 
sufficiently exciting to be an 
election winner. 

Equally, I wonder whether 
Mr Walker might not be 
considered too divisive in 
those circumstances. The Con- 
servatives might well want a 
change of style from Mrs 
Thatcher, but I think they 
mfeht be wary at such a time of 
creating the impression .that 



they were rejecting the 
Thatcher inheritance; 

Douglas Hurd would, there- 
fore, seem to me better placed 
to emerge, once the second' 
preference votes came into tbe 
reckoning, as Sir Geoffrey's 
principal rivaL He bolds, ap- 
propriately. senior office but is ' 
a fresher face than most of his 
colleagues at that level, has. 
experience of both foreign and 
domestic affairs, can be a 
powerful speaker and has 
something of the style of a 
potential leader. 

But most people do not 
expect Mrs Thatcher to leave 
until after the election. In that 
case the survey would make 
Kenneth Baker the front-run- • 
ner. But much would surely, 
depend upon whether the par- 
ty was still in office. If it were, . 
seniority would remain a foe- . 
tor. But Sir Geoffrey would be- 
63 by the time of a leadership 
election in 1990, which to my 
mind would leave Mr Hurd as 
the man to beat. 

I would never rale out the * 
possibility of George Younger 
slipping through almost anno- * 
deed as a latter-day Sir Alec 
Douglas-Home, and I am just 
beginning to wonder if John 
Biffen might, after all, have 
the appetite for the task. His 
personal popularity would be 
an obvious asset in a leader- 
ship election confined to tbe 
parliamentary party. 

Bnt his opportunity would 
probably- have to come soon, if 
at all. The longer tbe choice is 
delayed, the better Mr Baker's- 
chances will be. They would be 
brightest of all If tbe Conser- 
vatives were in opposition.' 
Conservatives are generally 
shaken by losing office and 
they would be likely to jump a 
political generation in the . 
search for someone who could ; 
stand np to Neil Kinnock. 

Mr Baker should not be 
jndged too old for that and be 
has that intense concern for 
presentation that parties al- 
ways value in opposition. 

But I suspect that Who 
Conies After Thatcher? will be 
a game that many will play for 
a little while yet 


Warning 
to EEC on 
practices 


TRANSPORT 


A warning was given by Mr John 
Moore. Secretary of State for 
Transport, to fellow members of 
the EEC that if, despite tbe 
principles agreed by the Council 
of Transport Ministers in 
Luxembourg yesterday, they 
were not willing to put aside 
restrictive practices in transport 
to which they were accustomed, 
they would face increasing court 
action and other steps to seek 
direct application of the Treaty 
of Rome, particularly of its 
competition rules. 

Mr Moore was making a state- 
ment on the meeting of the 
Council, which, he said, had 
agreed on Community standards 
or 11.5 tonnes for the drive axles 
of five-axled and six-axled ve- 
hicles. to apply from 1992. 
However, the meeting had 
agreed on a derogation of an 
unspecified length of time from 
this for Britain. 

The unanimity rule would be 
applied to a decision about the 
duration of the derogation which 
woold necessitate British 
agreement. 

We remain committed (be 
said) to the undertaking that 
there should be no increase in 
the maximum weight until Par- 
liament agrees and our roads are 
suitable. 

To accompany agreement on 
this, Britain had o brained Coun- 
cil agreement on the main lines 
of the way forward to full 
international road haulage lib- 
eralization within the 
Community. 

The Council had agreed on a 
cumulative increase in the 
Community quota of <40 per cent 
a year between now and 1992. 
Community permits were valid 
throughout the Community, giv- 
ing road haulage vehicles valu- 
able freedom to travel in any 
Community country. It would 
provide new opportunities for 
British hauliers 10 compete 1 

freely on equal terms, and would 
progressively liberate them from 
tbe cumbersome bureaucracy of 
tbe present bilateral permit 
system. 

It was agreed that while 
bilateral quotas existed they 
would be adjusted to meet traffic 

needs. The system would dis- 
appear from 1992. 

The meeting had confirmed a 
wide divergence of views on 
aviation but the Council had 
agreed that there needed to be a 
package of measures to promote 
increased competition covering 
market entry', 4ir fares and 
capacity at which airlines could 

Debate refused 

An emergency debate on the 
import of subsidized Greek 
cement was rejected by the 
Speaker. Mr Bernard 
Weatherill. The debate was 
requested by Mr James Pawsey 
(Rugby andKcnilwonh. C) who 
said such imports would have a 
most damaging effect on the 
home-based cement industry. 


Move on 
gas chief 
rejected 


GAS BILL 


Parliament should be consulted 
before and not after the Director 
General of Gas Supply was 
appointed Lord Diamond (SDP) 
said in moving an amendment 
to that effect, which was rejected 
by 121 voles to 104, Govern- 
ment majority — 1 7, during the 
report stage in the House of 
Lords of the Gas Bill. 

The Government was un- 
likely to be influenced by any 
comments made in either House 
after the appointment had been 
made, he said. It also meant 
there was no opportunity to 
question ministers about the 
person proposed. 

It was a case of the Govern- 
ment altering its pattern of 
behaviour by showing it was 
prepared to consult Parliament 
in advance. The amendment 
would allow the Secretary of 
State for Energy to consult in 
whatever way was appropriate 
and that was preferable to the ill- 
will that would otherwise result. 
Lord Boyd-Carpenter (Q said 
the amendment was vague and 
imprecise. 

Lord Gray of Contra, the 
Government spokesman, said 
the question was whether Par- 
liament was the right place or 
ihe right group of people to 
decide such an appointment 
The secretary of state had 
available a wide variety of 
people to guide and advise him. 


Aerospace deal not 
being renegotiated 


DEFENCE 


The Saudi Arabian aerospace 
deal with Britain is not being 
renegotiated, but the fall in the 
price of oil had affected finan- 
cial payments for the contract, 
Mr John Lee. Undersecretary 
of Stale for Defence Procure* 
ment. said when he opened 
the second day of the defence 
debate in the Commons. 

There is an element of 
discussion taking place (he 
added). 

Mr Lee was replying to Mr 
Kevin McNamara, an Opposi- 
tion spokesman on defence, 
who asked for confirmation 
that there was no question of 
the deal felling through. 

Mr Lee: 1 have nothing to add 
io what I have just said. We 
are talking about an extremely 
serious and major contract. 

Too often employment im- 
plications of defence spending 
were overlooked. Some 
1.200.000 people in the United 
Kingdom derived their jobs 
directly or indirectly from de- 
fence. Any attempts by Labour 
to reduce defence spending if it 
ever came to power would 
unquestionably affect 
employment. 

Ninety to 95 per cent of the 
equipment budget was spent in 
the UK. either on national 
programmes or on the UK's 
work share of collaborative 

programmes. 


Before leaving collaboration 
it would be wrong to ignore the 
European fighter aircraft. 
Project definition was proceed- 
ing very satisfactorily on the 
basis of the aircraft characteris- 
tics agreed last summer to a 
planned conclusion later this 
year, when decisions on the way 
ahead would be taken. 

The Ministry of Defence non- 
operational energy bill was more 
than £240 million a year and it 
was sensible for the ministry to 
make the most of potential 
savings. It had already reduced 
consumption by 30 per cent 
since the oil crisis of the early 
1970s. To give further impetus 
to improvements on energy 
efficiency he had set up a 
steering group of senior officers 
to oversee implementation of an 
energy efficiency programme 

Defence exports sustained 
120.000 jobs in the United 
Kingdom and that was setto rise 
following the increase of 17 per 
cent in sales Iasi year, in real 
terms, to £2.900 million. That 
was about 9 per cent of the 
world market. 

_ The Government had ordered 
52 warships for the Royal Navy 
since coming to power, to a total 
value of about £4.5 billion. 
Further orders for Type 23 
frigates would be announced 
before the House rose for the 
summer. 

He confirmed that it was 
intended to announce a further 
amphibious capability laier this 
year. The concept of an aviation 
support ship was included in 
their studies. 


Preventing 

furniture 

fires 


HOME SAFETY 


New legislative requirements 
about the flammability of up- 
holstered furniture are to in- 
clude reference to a code of 
practice based on thr Furniture 
Industry Research 

A550ciat ions's own classifica- 
tion scheme. 

Mr Michael Howard. Under 
Secretary of Slate for Trade and 
Industry, explained in a Com- 
mons written reply that this 
would mean that some of the 
worst upholstery component 
combinations now on the mar- 
ket would be banned but it will 
slop short of requiring all up- 
holstered furniture to meet the 
match test. 

The option of meeting the 
match test directly would be 
allowed and the cigarette lest 
would remain an essential 
rcquinemcm. 

Mr Howard said that in each of 
the years 1981-84 there were 
between 3.300 and 3.600 ac- 
cidental fires started in 
upbholstcred furniture and in 
which about ISO people died 
and about 1.000 were injured 
each year. About half the fires 
were started by cigarettes. 

A working group was being set 
up to devise a code of practice 
that would serve as a basis for 
legislation and ensure a worth- 
while improvement in the fire 
resistance of upholstered fur- 
niture. 


Surrogacy 
case sent 
to DPP 


LAW REVIEW 

The Government is beeping the 
possible need for amendments to 
the Surrogacy Arrangements 
Act 1985 under review, Mr 
Barney Hayhoe, Minister for 
Health, said daring Commons 
questions. 

Mr Peter Bniinvels (Leicester 
East, C) had asked him to 
condemn the vile practice of i 
surrogacy and womb leasing 
arrangements that were reported 
to have occurred. He referred to 
the Reproduction Freedom 
International Organization, run 
by Miss Lorrien Finley. 

Womb leasing was contrary to | 
the spirit of the Act. Should not 
people like that be prosecuted? 

Later, Mr John Stokes | 
(Halesowen and Stourbridge. C) 
said most people loathed 
commercial surrogacy 
Mr Hayhoe said such concern 
would be shared by many MPs. 

He understood that police bad 
investigated the case Mr 
Bniinvels had mentioned and 
that the Director of Public 
Prosecutions was now consid- 
ering their report. 

If Miss Finley was falling fool 
of the law, no doubt the DPP 
would take the necessary action. 

Consideration was now being 
given to whether the law needed 
amending to take action on some 
other practices which would not 
be illegal under the terms of the 
1985 Act as it stood. 


Sale room 


Eccentric’s collection 
sets auction records 

By Geraldine Norman, Sale Room Correspondent • 


The auction price record for 
English porcelain was doubled 
yesterday and the record for 
pottery almost tripled when 
the collection of English ce- 
ramics formed by Tom Burn 
at Rous Lench, near Evesham, 
was sold by Sotheby's. His 
pottery collection alone made 
£1 3 million. 

Burn was given the ram- 
bling Jacobean manor of Rous 
Lench, together with a Rolls- 
Royce, in 1928 as a twenty- 
first birthday present by his 
father, who ran a taighly- 
successful chain of bespoke 
tailors. 

He never married and de- 
voted his life to filling the old . 
house with treasures, furni- 
ture. sculpture, but above ail 
porcelain. 

The collection was known 
only to serious ceramics col- 
lectors: Burn abhorred show- 
ing it to mere tourists. Its fame 
was combined with an ele- 
ment of mystery. 

After toying with the idea of 
leaving the house and collec- 
tion to the locality as a 
museum, he lost patience with 
local government officials and 
left it instead in half shares to 
his head gardener. Mr James 
Newman, and the manager of 


his nursery garden, Mrs Moni- 
ca Houghton. 

Both were faithful friends 
during his last illness. Howev- 
er. after his death, the will was 
unsuccessfully challenged by 
his sisters. 

A saliglaze pew group dat-. 
ing from about 1745 became' 
the most expensive example, 
of English ceramic an ever 
sold at auction when it made 
£102,000 to Alistair Sampson, 
a London dealer. 

In the porcelain department 
a Chelsea model of Hogarth’s" 
dog Trump doubled the previ- 
ous auction record to sell for 
£85.800 to Johnathon Home. ■ 
another London dealer. - 

Pottery was more hotly 
competed for than porcelain. 
A Delaware portrait charger" 
depicting Charles II set a new; 
auction price record for En-. 
glish Delft at £78.000 (esti- 
mate £15,000-£ 15.000). It is- 
dated 1666. 

Bum also had a passion fbr* 
slipware, and a dish by Thom-' 
as Toft of about 1680 set a - 
record at £46,000 (estimate 
£25.000-£35,000). selling to 
Winifred Williams. 

At Christie’s the morning 
sale of Old Master drawings 
totalled £756.778. 


Thatcher defends Government 
record on combating poverty 


BENEFITS 


The number of people below Uic 
poverty line increased as the 
line, represented by the level of 
supplementary benefit payment, 
was raised. Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher said when she told Mr 
Neil Kinnock. Leader of the 
Opposition, that while in some 
ways Britain was behind other 
western coutnries in social wel- 
fare. in others Britain was 
ahead. 

Mr Kinnock opened the 
Commonsqueslion time ex- 
changes by drawing the Prime 
Minister’s alien lion to the re- 
port of the Royal College of 
Physicians which, he said, of- 
fered conclusive evidence of the 
strong links between poverty, 
illness and early death. 

He also asked for an under- 
taking that Ihe Government 
would not add to the pressures 
on the poor but would accept the 
defeats indicted in the House of 
Lords during the passage of the 
Social Security Bill. 

Mrs Thatcher: About _ the 
Health Community Medicine 
Report 1 accept that on some 
cases the position in this coun- 
try is not as good as in other 
western countries but it is a jolly 
sight better than under Labour. 

In other areas we are ahead: 


for example in infant mortality 
we are better than Germany, the 
United States. Belgium.' and 
Austria. In life expectancy at 
birth, this country is higher than 
France, Germany. Belgium and 
the United States. 

So perhaps Mr Kinnock will 
read the whole report. The other 

matter is for consideration later. 
Mr Kinnock: That is an interest- 
ing answer. (Laughter) The 
number of people among the 
old. families and disabled who 
are in poverty has doubled 
under her Government. 

Does die realize that if she 
does not accept the changes to 
the Social Security Bill, four 
million people will be pushed 
more deeply into poverty and 
put under greater pressures as a 
result ofthe Government’s mea- 
sures. If that occurred, they 
would not only suffer greater 
poverty but pea ter risks of 
illness and early death. Is that 
what the family parly wants? 
Mrs Thatcher. The record of 
this Government on health and 
social benefit is very good. If he 
lakes the definition of poverty 
as the supplementary benefit 
level, every time the Govern- 
ment increase that benefit, it 
increases the numbers in pov- 
erty. The wav io reduce the 
numbers would be to put down 
the level of supplemen tary bene-

•Defending the Social Se- 
curity Bill during Commons 
question time exchanges. Mr 
Norman Fowler. Secretary of 
State for Social Services, said it 
was going to do what it set out to 
do. which was to direct more 
help to people in real need. He 
reminded die House that 
changes made to the Bill in the 
Lords would be reconsidered 
when it returned to the 
Commons. 

Mr Michael Meacher. chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
health and social security said: 
Now that the Government has 
been forced to back off from its 
ill-advised, unpopular proposals 
not only on family credit but 
Sorps. the 20 per cent housing 
benefit cut and discretionary 
disability payments, is it not

where outside this whipped 
House this Bill is universally 
detested? Now that his last three 
years’ work has crumbled

thing and either withdraw the 
Bill or resign? 

Mr Fowler: He should and 
perhaps does know enough 
about our procedure to know 
that some of these things will 
come back, some of these things 
may be pul right.

HEALTH 


Mr Michael Meacher. chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
health and social security, re- 
ferred during Commons ques- 
tion lime to a report from a 
group from the Royal College of 
Physicians which described the 
unhealthy condition of peopie 
in Britain. 

Was not the misapplication of 
the Resources Allocation Work- 
ing Party one major reason for 
the report that after seven years 
of Tory Government Britain 
was one of the unhealthiest 
countries in the developed 
world ? 

This Government was now 
spending 50 per cent less on 
health as a proportion of the 
gross national product com- 


pared with the French, tbe 
Germans and the Americans. 

When was the secretary of j 
slate going io recognize ‘that 
R.AWp could not work properly 
while Ihe NHS remained so 
grossly underfunded? 

Mr Norman Fowler. Secretary 
of State for Social Services, 
replied that the Government 
was spending 24 per cent more 
in real terms than the last 
Labour government. 

The health service was treat- 
ing more patients and the! 
capital building programme had 
been restored. The health ser- 
vice was developing into a better 
health service. 

We will stand not only on our ! 
record but also on the record of 
the last Labour Government (he : 
said). 


Welsh language Bill 


Mr Dafydd Wigley (Caernarfon. 
PI Cl was given leave to bring in 
his Welsh Language Bill which 
would amend the Welsh Lan- 
guage Act 1967 and would 
afford to both Welsh and En- 
glish languages full official 
status. 

He said this would clear upon 
unsatisfactory situation. The 
Bill would provide for ail public 


notices and forms to be bi- 
lingual and for children and 
young people to be able io learn 
in Welsh and to have education 
in Welsh at a reasonable dis- 
tance from their homes. 

People still did not know what 
their rights were on language 
and there were massive short-

Science report ; 

Americans to explore 
riddle of ‘ozone hole’ 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 
An attempt to solve the extends over most of Antarctic 

ca, creating a “bole" in the- 
ozone, about the size of the* 
United States. 

Next month, a group of 
.American scientists will fly- 
into the Antarctic winter to- 
McMnrdo Station, the princi- 
pal American scientific oht~ 
post, to seek an explanation 1 
for the phenomenon. The an - 
swers are essentiaf for re-"! 
searchers, fa. correct the- 
computer models of the com- ' 
position and, dynamics of the- 
stratospbere. ' * 

They will launch more than 
30 huge balloons, dairying • 
instruments fa measure ozone.; 
molecular gases in the atmo—' 
sphere, tbe absorption of solar., 
infra-red radiation by these" 
gases, and .solar visible light?

The study w31 involve three..

riddle of the huge “ozone 
hole* 1 in the skies above 
Antarctica will be made by 
scientists on a hazardous mis- 
sion next month. 

Dramatic fluctuations in the 
protective layer of ozone, 
about 15 miles above Antarcti- 
ca. have been recorded in the 
past few years. Ozone is of 
critical importance to life on 
earth because it screens out 
almost all the son's harmful 
ultraviolet radiation. 

Recent studies have report- 
ed changes of “unprecedented 
proportions" in the layer 
above the southern continent, 
and the present ozone readings 
are about half of rhose ob- 
served in the early 1970s. 
According to the British Ant- 
arctic Survey, the amount of 
ozone over Halley Bay. in the 
eastern portion of the Weddeii 
Sea. has decreased every 
spring since 1975. 

Satellite data have shown 
that the spring depletion is not 
confined to this region, but

of the student grant It says the 
real value of the maintenance 
gram has fallen by 14J5 per- 
cent in the past seven years, 
and its cash value is due to rise 
by only 15 per cent in 1 987-88 
and in 1988-89, 

The committee recom- 
mends that mtitiatives such as 
the Youth Training Scheme 
may have consequences not 
foreseen by the Government 
such as a fell off in the 
numbeis staying on to do A 
levels. 

“It would be most undesir- 
able if such consequences were 
not monitored,” it says point- 
edly. 

The scheme seems to have 
led to a cut in the number of 
people taking A levels, but no 
one knows because the re- 
search is not being done. The 
figures show a sudden fall-off 
in the proportion of A-level 
students as the scheme ex- 
panded. 

“If the expansion of the 
scheme has ted to a cut in 
numbers of those undertaking 
A levels in school, it is in our 
view essential that the depart- 
ment has some way of know- 
ing that this is the case,” the 
MPs say. 



Pete Marsh’s 
first public 
appearance 

“Pete Marsh”, the remains 
of an Iron Age man dag bp in a 
Cheshire peat bog two years 
ago, will be shown to the 
Prince of Wales today when he 
opens ** Archaeology in 
Britain”, the largest exhibi- 
tion staged by the British 
Museum (Gavin Bell writes). 

The exhibition, which traces 
10,000 years of soda! history, 
opens to the public tomorrow. 

More properly known as 
lindow Main (his popular 
sobriquet was conferred in 
deference to his resting place). 
Fete was unearthed by a peat- 
cutting machine in 1984. Al- 
though the HMcbfng cat the 
body in two, aridity in the soil 
had preserved his hair and

sisted of wheat and mistletoe.

A wrongly-convicted man, 
who spent 15 months In prison

told yesterday that he cannot 
take his fight for compensa- 
tion to the High Court. 

Mr Gordon Chubb, of Eg- 
bert Road, Wests* te on Sea, 
Kent, applied for leave to seek 
a ruling that be had been 
denied justice when the Home 
Secretary, in February, re- 
fused him an ex-graiia pay- 
ment for his imprisonment. 

Lord Justice Stephen 
Brown, sitting with Mr Justice 
Otton in the Queen's Bench 
Divisional Court, held that the 
Home Secretary’s derision 
was not reviewable. 

Mr Chnbb was jailed for 
three years at Birkenhead

cause grievous bodily harm. In

The deal was clinched by

Jt can carry double the weight-, 
of men and weapons as a* 
standard model and cope with *

Competitors included 
Mercedes Benz, Jeep, Toyota, ' 
Nissan and Mitsubishi, but in 
the final stages of the trials, 
codenamed Project Perentie, 
l only Land Rover and'. 
Mercedes remained. 

The West Germans were 
confident that their one-ton

the day. In the event the 
Australians chose 2,500 Land

shared many components and 
would be easier and cheaper to 
maintain. 

The vehicles will be shipped

injured 99, most of them 
whites, according to official 
figures. 

;r The sudden increase in such 
incidents, and the large num- 
ber of white victims, suggests a 
shift in the pattern oFblack 
insurgency from the more 
traditional kind of sabotage 
warfare and attacks on black 
“collaborators” to openly 
ami-white terrorism, aimed at 
“soft” civilian targets. 

This, in turn, would seem to 
be in part a calculated re- 
sponse to the repressive mea- 
sures taken by Pretoria under 
the state of emergency. These 
include sweeping powers of 
arrest and detention as well as 
severe controls on extra-par- 
liamentary opposition and 
press reporting of “unrest” 
and matters considered to be 
“subversive”. 


The National' Union of 
Mineworkers voted early yes- 
terday to embark from today 
on a campaign of disruptive 
protest action on the mines. 

It is not possible to describe 
in detail the kind of action 
called for by the NUM, as the 


that could incite people to take 
tart in “subversive” acts, 
which include consumer boy- 
cotts and unlawful strikes. 

The possibility of a legal 
strike is looming on the mines 
over the separate issue of this 
war's annual wage agreement. 
The Chamber of Mines yester- 
day implemented a wage rise 
of 15 to 20 per cent, even 
though the NUM is still 
demanding 30 per cent. 

The two sides are due to 
resume negotiations today. 


are in jail, in hiding, or 
abroad. The NUM president, 
Mr James Moiolatsi. and Mr 
Cyril Ramaphosa, the general 
secretary, are in Britain. 


The NUM contends that the 
mining houses, represented by 
the Chamber of Mines, can 
well afford to meet its de- 
mands after a 36 per cent 
increase in earnings last year. 


Arson attack on 
apartheid foes 


Of the 565,000 blacks em-' 
ployed on the gold, coal and 
platinum mines, the NUM 
claims some 300,000 as 
signed-up members, of which 
150,000 are said to be fully 
paid-up.

Reports of a midnight petrol 
bomb attack on the offices of 
three leading anti-apartheid 
organizations in Johannes- 
burg have reached charch 
sources in London. 

It was the second raid 
during the present state of 
emergency on Freeway House, 
which holds the offices of the 
radical student newspaper 
Saspa National, the media 
information centre MARS, 
and the community reserve h 
organization CRIC. In the 
earlier raid files were removed 
by members of the security 
forces. 

In the second raid telex, 
typesetting and other printing 
equipment was said to have 
been smashed or removed. 

Thro petrol bombs were 
thrown which destroyed the 
ground and first floors of the 


building. No one is reported to 
have been in the building at 
the timp. 

News continued to reach 
Europe about the ware of 
arrests among trade muon 
leaders. In Brussels the Inter- 
nationa] Confederation of Free 
Trade Unions confirmed that 
Mr Moses Mayekiso, of the 
Metal and Allied Workers 
Union, had been arrested. 

So too, h said, had Mr 
Elijah Barayi, the president of 
the Confederation of South 
African Trade Unions 
(Cosatn) and a prominent 
figure' in the Union of 
Mineworkers. 

Both onions are in the 
middle of wage negotiations 
and the arrests could cause 
trouble, particularly in the 
gold mines. 


Meanwhile, leaders of the 
Congress of . South African 
Trade Unions, of which the 
NUM is the biggest affiliate, 
were yesterday reported to be 
meeting at an undisclosed 
venue — kept secret for fear of 
police intervention — in the 
Johannesburg area to discuss 
how to respond to the slate of 
emergency. 

A Cosatu statement earlier 
this week said industrial rela- 
tions “would certainly col- 
lapse if trade union leaders are 
either in detention or forced 
into hiding”. But the Govern- 
ment, it said, seemed “pre- 
pared to countenance such 
industrial chaos in its bid to 
stamp out all semblance of 
opposition.” 

In Pretoria, the Bureau for 
Information said one person 
had been killed in the 24 hours 
to 6 am yesterday “in one of 
the quietest days” since June 
12 .

Shadows over the 
Liberty party 


From Michael Binyon Washington 


President Mitterrand will 
arrive in New York tomorrow 
for the Statue of liberty 
centenary, celebrations that 
have already engulfed the 
country in political controver- 
sy. an unprecedented com- 
mercial extravaganza and a 
sea of patriotic fervour. 

The French President will 
join President Reagan tomor- 
row evening wbenMr Reagan 
will award the Medal of Liber- 
ty to 12 prominent naturalized 
citizens, and turn on lasers 
that illuminate the refurbished 
statue. . . ’ . • 

Chief JusticeWarren Burger 
will swear in 15,000 immi- 
grant Americans, most in 
other cities linked by 
television. 

A $30 million (£20 million) 
spectacular to be watched by 
■six million spectators in New 
York has been planned for the 
Fourth of July weekend. It will 
include 60,000 boats in New 
York harbour, 3,100 dinners 
at $5,000 a plate, 22 of the 
world’s tallest sailing ships on 
parade, 76 trombones in the 
all-American collegiate 
marching band, 300 Jazzercise 
ladies in leotards, 1 50 fiddlers, 
200 dancing Elvis Presley 
look-alikes and the largest 
fireworks display ever mount- 
ed, with TO tons of rockets 
shooting out from 32 barges in 
lower Manhattan. 

Clouds of controversy have 
already cast a shadow over all 
this. There have been strong 
protests over the participation 
of the Esmeralda, a Chilean 
sailing ship that was allegedly 
used to torture and imprison 
opponents of General Pino- 
chet ini 973. 

The Senate voted to with- 
draw the invitation, but the 
House of Representatives did 
not follow suit Embarrassing- 
ly, it was found that the US 
Coast Guard vessel. Eagle, 
leader of the tall ships’ parade, 
was originally built for Hitler 
as Horst Wessei 

Federal judges in Washing- 
ton and Los Angeles have also 
criticized the mass swearing in 
of immigrants as vulgar ana 
undignified, and Said last 
week they would have no part 
in it The cities have therefore 
been left out of the television 
hook-up. 

The cost of the four-day 
extravaganza, coordinated by 
the organizer of the 
Olympics in Los Angeles, has 
also been criticized. The Rev 
Jesse Jackson is planning to 


spend two nights in New 
York's infamous hotel for the 
homeless, who. he said, were 
today's real “huddled masses 
yearning to breath free”. 

But the biggest storm has 
raged over the commercializa- 
tion of the ceremony, with 
company sponsors getting 
rights to use the statue in 
advertising and writing off 
their promotional activities 
Already there are Liberty 
charcoal briquettes Liberty 
beach towels. Liberty dry 
roasted peanuts and Liberty 
tobacco. 

And the ostentations pres- 
ence of show business stars 
such as Frank Sinatra, Greg- 
ory Peck, Neil Diamond and 
Elizabeth Taylor with their 
salutes to the Lady Liberty, 
accompanied by trumpeters 
and bursts of spontaneous 
song from the new immi- 
grants, will vie for public 



Mr David Wolper, the man 
responsible for the Liberty 

celebrations on Friday, 
attention with the release of 
4,000 pigeons and the cavort- 
ing of sportsmen, baseball 
stars, gymnasts and chorus 
girls in sequined mini skirts. 

Despite prophecies of chaos 
with too many yachts, includ- 
ing several chartered palaces 
to entertain the rich at $ 1,000 
a head, too few portable lava- 
tories, too much traffic and 
too many robberies, and de- 
spite the efforts of special 
vigilante squads. New York 
and all America is looking for- 
ward to rt all with growing en- 
thusiasm. 

When Mrs Nancy Reagan 
cuts the ribbon of the statue 
on Saturday and goes inside 
with 100 French and Ameri- 
can children, she will start a 
new stream, that will again 
swarm all over America’s 
most famous monument for 
generations to come. 


Honduras 
envoy is 
replaced 


Washington — The United 
States is replacing its ambassa- 
dor to Honduras, reportedly 
because he has not adequately 
represented Washington’s in- 
creasingly hard line towards 
neighbouring Nicaragua 
(Christopher Thomas writes). 

Mr John Ferch, who was 
appointed less than a year 
was notified a few days ; 
the House of Representatives 
approved new aid of $1 00 
million to the Nicaraguan 
Contras last week. 


Appeal by IRA men fails 


The Hague (UPI) - Two 
Irish Republican Army fugi- 
tives held in Holland came 
closer zo extradition yesterday 
when the Dutch Supreme 
Court rejected their appeals. 
The decision means Gerard 
Kelly will have to re-siate his 


case against extradition to 
Britain before the High Court 
on September 10. The judges 
overruled an Amsterdam Dis- 
trict Court decision in March 
which found Kelly's extradi- 
tion was inadmissable. 

The decision upheld a lower 


court ruling that would allow 
Brendan McFariane to be 
extradited to resume serving a 
life sentence in Northern Ire- 
land. It also overturned the 
lower court's decision that his 
extradition to face further 
charges was not proper. 


Weizsacker 
spells out 
lesson of 
the Somme 


By Patricia Clough 

President von Weizsacker of 
West Germany said last night 
that the seventieth anniversa- 
ry of the Battle of the Somme 
gave every reason to remember 
how tensions between Britain 
and Germany had led to war, 
destruction and bitter human 
suffering. 

Speaking at a state banquet 
in Buckingham Palace, the 
President, who is becoming 
known as the “conscience of 
West Germany", said that in 
particular “we cannot and will 
not forget the lessons taught 
us by the deep scars left 
behind by the Second World 
War” 

Recent decades had proved 
that friendship between Brit- 
ain and West Germany had 
been re-established on a solid 
foundation, be said. 

The President revealed that 
the Prince and Princess of 
Wales had accepted an invita- 
tion to make an official visit to 
West Germany next year. 

He also announced the cre- 
ation of two prizes, each worth 
£3,000, to be awarded every 
year to a British and a German 
journalist for the best contri- 
bution to understanding be- 
tween the two countries. 

Two scholarships, to enable 
West German postgraduates 
to study at Cambridge for a 
year, have also been set up in 
memory of Dr Knrt Hahn, the 
German educationalist who 
founded Gordons toun school 
in Scotland, where the Duke of 
Edinburgh and the Prince of 
Wales studied. 

The three-day visit by Presi- 
dent von WeizScker is the 
third by a West German 
President since the war. 
Whereas the first, by Presi- 
dent Heuss in 1958, was 
designed to demonstrate the 
reconciliation between Britons 
and Germans after the war, 
the current visit is seen as 
underlining the “maturity” 
and normality of relations. 


Nigerians 
request 
extradition 
of four 


By Paul Vallely 


Within days of the release of 
two British engineers from jail 
in Lagos, the Nigerian Gov- 
ernment has requested the 
extradition of four formerly 
prominent politicans who fled 
to London after the military 
coup nearly three years ago. 

The Foreign Office has 
steadfastly refused to make 
any connection between the 
two cases but the Nigerian 
Government, albeit not so 
vociferously as its predeces- 
sor. seems to maintain some 
link. 


The Iasi regime made clear 
that the continued impris- 
onment of the two engineers, 
Mr Kenneth Clark and Mr 
Angus Patterson, was directly 
related to the incident in 
which the British foiled a 
bizarre attempt to kidnap the 
former Nigerian Transport 
Minister. Mr Umam Dikko. 
and smuggle him out of 
England, drugged, in a crate. 
Until now the present Lagos 
Government seemed to make 
no such connection. 

The applications for extra- 
dition name Mr Adisa 
Akinloye. chairman of tile 
then ruling National Party of 
Nigeria, which has since been 
banned, and the former Fi- 
nance Minister, Mr Sunday 
Essang, the former Police 
Affairs Minister, Mr Emman- 
uel Osamor. and Mr Ali 
Makele, who was once Minis- 
ter for Steel Development 

A government statement 
said the men were wanted to 
answer charges ranging from 
corruption to abuse of office, 
offences for which many past 
officials are already serving 
long jail terms in Nigeria. 

The Nigerians sought the 
official extradition of Mr 
Dikko to face corruption 
charges in 1984. Two years 
later Britain has yet to agree to 
his extradition. 


Marcos denies 
golf cheating 


Manila (Reuter) — Former 
President Marcos, whose war 
heroism and financial dealings 
are already under close scruti- 
ny. has denied in an angry 
letter to a Manila newspaper 
that he cheats at golf. 

Columnist Dindo Gonzalez 
of Business Day had accused 
Mr Marcos of signing false golf 
scores to lower his handicap. 
Mr Marcos accused Mr Gon- 
zalez of spreading “crude lies 
about my golf”. 


Killer rain 


Dhaka — Torrential rain for 
the last three days in south- 
eastern Bangladesh has killed 
12 people and made more 
than 20,000 homeless as rivers 
triggered landslides, inundat- 
ed villages and washed away, 
crops. 


Shelling claim 


Athens — Greece claimed 
yesterday that the Turkish 
navy had fired two shells near 
a Cypriot cruise ship sailing in 
the high seas east of Rhodes, 
and said it would denounce 
the harassment to interna- 
tional organizations. 


Death plunge 


Oslo (Reuter) — John Ray- 
mond Foster, aged 39, from 
Melbourne, was killed when 
he attempted to parachute 
from a 2,460ft Norwegian 
mountain. 


‘Spy’ expelled 


Stockholm (Reuter) — An 
unnamed Soviet trade official 
expelled by Sweden for “activ- 
ities incompatible with his 
official duties” was spying on 
a £2 billion programme to 
build a new fighter plane, 
government sources said.

Pope starts Colombian 
peace pilgrimage 
amid fears for his safety 


THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JULY 2 1986 


] From Geoffrey Matthews 
Bogota . 

The Pope arrived here yes- 
terday at the start of a week- 
. tong visit to Colombia, amid 
fears for his personal safety 
land desperate hopes that he 
; may somehow work a miracle 
by bringing peace to this 
violent country. 

: ^ Pe ! ce is toe theme of the 

■ Pope's latest Latin American 
.pilgrimage. It was niw the 
: elusive dream of President 

• Behsano Betancur, who greet- 
ed him at Bogota's raterna- 
ttonai airport. 

. . In a few weeks lime. Press 
dent Betancur will leave office 
- after a four-year term during 
; which he continually sought 
. peace with the nation's vari- 
. ous guerrilla groups. 

That policy came to an 
abrupt end last November, 
when members of the left wing 
; April J9 Movement (M-19) 
-defiantly stormed the Palace 
■. of Justice here. The occupa- 
; lion, and Army counter-ao- 

■ tion. claimed 9S lives. 

■ # The Pope will travel widely 
in this country, which is twice 
the size of France and has a 
population of 28 million. 

The most dramatic and 
: moving moment will come on 
Sunday, when he is due to 
visit the scene of the second 
' catastrophe which rocked Co- 

• tombia last November — the 


• . Pope’s itinerary

eruption of the Nevado del 
Ruiz volcano. 

, He plans to celebrate Mass 

in the wilderness that is all 
that is left of the small town of 
Armero which was buried by 
flash floods and mud-slides. 
The Mass will be for the 
repose of some 25,000 souls 
who perished in the disaster. 

But both the Church and the 
Government have agreed that 
the service, which is expected 
to be attended by lens of 
thousands, will be called off if 
there is any danger of a new 
eruption. 

Meanwhile, M-19 has 
pledged to curb its activities. 
In a letter delivered to the 
Vatican last week, M-19 said it 
would maintain a ceasefire 
during the Pope's visit and 
appealed to him to help end 
thecivil war by meeting M-19 
leaders. 

However, the Vatican has 
ruled out any such encounter, 
insisting that it was too late to 


change the Pope’s tight sched- 
ule, and that “anyway, he does 
not talk to men with weapons 
in their hands.” 

Despite the guerrilla group's 
ceasefire commitment, fears 
persist that the publicity-con- 
scious M-19 will not be able to 
pass up the chance of capital- 
izing on a week in which 
Colombia will be in the focus 
of international media atten- 
tion. 

The Pope soon became 
aware of the complexities of 
the Colombian political situa- 
tion when at a reception in his 
honour at the Presidential 
Palace last night he met 
representatives of the pro- 
Moscow Revolutionaiy 
Armed Forces of Colombia 
(Fare), often called the armed 
wing of the Colombian Com- 
munist Party and formerly the 
country’s biggest guerrilla 
group: 

Fare has honoured a series 
of ceasefire pacts with the 
Government and fielded a 
candidate at the recent presi- 
dential election, increasing 
three-fold the left's traditional 
electoral support. 

The Pope also met the 
Liberal Party’s triumphant 
candidate in the presidential 
election, Senor Virgilio Barco 
Vargas, who will succeed Pres- 
ident Betancur, an indepen- 
dent conservative, on August

From Our Own 
Correspondent 
Jerusalem 

Israel’s 11,000 hospital 
nurses intensified their strike 
yesterday by withdrawing the 
| few who had remained on 
duty to provide care in spe- 
cialist and emergency units. 
Their militant action has now 
been followed by 6,000 clinic 
nurses, ambulance drivers and 
social workers. 

Strike leaders were told 
yesterday that the Govern- 
ment would not negotiate a 
separate pay deaL The nurses 
were, particularly angered by 
the Treasury’s Director of 
Wage _and Labour Agree-

said; “Most hospitals are be-

K2 ‘claims 
lives of 
six more 
climbers’ 

By Ronald Fame 

Four American and two 
French climbers are reported 
to have died on K2 (28,250ft), 
the world's second highest 
mountain. Pakistan authori- 
ties are trying to gather more 
details of the accidents from 
Skardu, the capital of the 
remote region. 

A Pakistan press agency 
report said the four American 
climbers, including expedition 
leader Mr John Smoiich, died 
in an accident between their 
first and second camps; and 
Mr Maurice Barrard and his 
wife, Lillian, died while de- 
scending from the fourth 
camp. 

Mr Brian Haft, a British 
mountaineer from Stockport, 
who returned recently after 
injuring a 1% ou the British 
Fuller's K2 expedition, said 
yesterday there was a large i 
number of expeditions in the 
area 

The American expedition ' 
was climbing the sooth pillar, i 
which was also being attempt- 
ed by an Italian soloist and , 
another Italian team called 
Himalayan 8,000. This was a , 
mass attempt to conquer all I 
the 8,000 metre peaks in the 
Himalayas within five years. ! 

Mr Hall said: “There 
seemed to be every nationality 
under the sun out there and a 
war was being waged between 
India and Pakistan only 10 
miles away.” 


Kuwait Cabinet 
ministers quit 


Kuwait (Reuter) — Kuwait's 
.Deputy Prime Minister said 
yesterday he and several 
members of the Government 
had submitted their resigna- 
tions to the Prime Minister, 
Sheikh Saad al-Abdulla al- 
Sabah, the Kuwait news agen- 
cy Kuna said. 

Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmed al- 
Sabah. who is also Foreign 
Minister, gave no reason for 
the resignations. 

Three ministers, responsi- 
ble for oil, finance and com- 
munications. were scheduled 
next week to face cross-exami- 
nation in the National Assem- 
bly over the conduct of their 
ministries. 

The Oil Minister, Sheikh 
Ali al'Khalifa al-Sabah, has 
already faced heated question- 
ing in ‘Parliament over explo- 
sions at the emirate's main oil 
refinery last month, which the 
Government implied was 
sabotage. 


He had previously been 
under persistent attack in the 
Chamber over his handling of 
oil affairs. 

The 16-member Cabinet, 
including Sheikh Saad was 
formed in March last year. 

The Oil Minister, a royal 
family member, is accused by 
some deputies of failing to 
take adequate precautions for 
the safety of vital oil 
installations. 

Cricism has also been 
voiced of the Finance Minis- 
ter. Mr Jassim Muhammad al- 
Khorafi. over the work of a 
slate-appointed committee set 
up under his predecessor to 
help resolve a debt crisis 
caused by a stock-market 
crash in 1982. 

The crash, which came after 
post-dated cheques used for 
speculative forward trading 
started to bounce, left some 
$95 billion (£62 billion) of 
debt in default. 


Iran claims battle win 


Bahrain (Reuter) — Both 
sides in the Gulf war reported 
heavy fighting yesterday 
around Mehran, an Iranian 
border town seized by Iraqi 
forces six weeks ago. 

An Iraqi communique said 
that an Iranian attempt to 
retake ibe town bad been 
thwarted, but fighting contin- 
ued. while later Iranian com- 
muniques spoke of “remark- 
able victories”, with hundreds 
of Iraqi casualties and the 
destruction of two Iraqi bri- 
gade headquarters. The na- 


tional news agency 1RNA said 
dozens of square miles had 
been “liberated”. 

Iraq seized Mehran for the 
second time on May 17. The 
town. 106 miles east of Bagh- 
dad in the south-central sec- 
tion of the front, is believed to 
have been cleared of civilians 
early in the war. 

Iraq's thrust across the bor- 
der marked a change of tactics, 
after Iran's February occupa- 
tion of the strategic southern 
lip of Iraq's Faw peninsula, at 
the head of the Gulf.

Renton appeal 
on hangings 
passed down to 


courts 


From Our Own Correspondent, Kuala Lumpur 

for trafficking in heroine and 
other dangerous drugs, saying 
those who were caught should 


Britain yesterday appealed 
to Malaysia for clemency for 
Kevin Barlow, the Brittsh- 
bom Australian ' who laces 
imminent death for drug 
trafficking. 

The plea, made by Mr 
Timothy Renton, the junior 
Foreign Minister, followed 
one by Australia asking that 
the death sentences for Barlow 
and compatriot Brian Cham- 
bers be commuted to life 
imprisonment. 

Before leaving for Singapore 
alter a three-day visit here. Mr 
Renton said he agreed with 
the general Malaysian premise 
that "drug traffickers deserve 
very tough measures". He 
said, however, that he ap- 
pealed for Barlow's life on 
humanitarian grounds. 

Mr Renton, who made his 
plea to Mr Tengku Ahmad 
Rithauddeen. the Malaysian 
Foreign Minister, said he was 
told the matter was up to the 
courts but Britain's message 
would be passed on. 

Since the two lost their 
appeal for clemency 10 days 
ago. their lawyers have re- 
turned to the courts to chal- 
lenge the legality of the 
rejection. They have also initi- 
ated fresh action for stays of 
execution. 

Daruk Seri Dr Mahathir 
Mohamed, the Malaysian 
Prime Minister, yesterday 
warned foreigners against us- 
ing Malaysia as a staging post 


expect no mercy. 
Mr Tui 


But Mr Tunku Abdul 
Rahman, the 83-year-old for- 
mer Prime Minister and 
country’s founding father, has 
suggested in his weekly news- 
paper column that passing 
death sentences on young men 
and women could be inhu- 
man. He wrote that the Gov- 
ernment should temper justice 
with mercy, especially in cases 
like those or Barlow and 
Chambers, “who were obvi- 
ously caught on information 
received". 

His, though, is a lone voice 
in Malaysia. The mood is 
against clemency for the Aus- 
tralians. One newspaper edito- 
rial demanded they be hanged 
forthwith. Letters to the editor 
generally are hostile to a 
commuiaL 

There is also the realization, 
however, that the Govern- 
ment will lose its nerve if the 
hangings are delayed much 
longer. 

Informed sources said yes- 
terday that the Conference of 
Rulers, a quarterly meeting of 
the country’s nine rulers and 
four governors, will discuss 
the case at their three-day 
meeting which begins today.

US will tighten squeeze on Gadaffi 


From Mohsin Ali 
Washington 

The US plans to tighten 
economic sanctions against 
Libya following the termina- 
tion on Monday of Libyan op- 
erations by the five American 
oil companies which did busi- 
ness there, senior administra- 
tion officials said yesterday. 

The five companies — Occi- 
dental, Marathon, Amerada 
Hess. Conoco and W R Grace 
— are now complying fully 
with Mr Reagan’s executive 
order of January 7, which bans 
all US trade with Libya. 

Officials said the Adminis- 
tration would pursue efforts to 
broaden its embargo to in- 


clude a ban on imports of 
refined petroleum products 
that contain Libyan crude oiL 
They expected the Adminis- 
tration to begin talks with, 
about ten countries — primari- 
ly in Western and Eastern 
Europe - to work out a system 
that might require them to 
certify that refined products 


exported to the United States 
contained no Libyan crude. 

The American companies' 
pull-out meant only a book- 
keeping change, since they had 
withdrawn the last of their 
American personnel years ago 
and have not derived any re- 
venues from Libyan opera- 
tions for some time. 


Libyan killed in France 


But the companies, which 
hold minority stakes in oil 
concessions controlled by the 
Libyan Government, were al- 
lowed to continue operating 
temporarily because an abrupt 
departure in January would 
have given Libyan leader Col- 
onel Gadaffi a “windfall" gift 
of their installations and 
equipment valued at about $1

painted a glowing picture of 
future European unity. 

He spoke movingly of the 
late Altiero SpinellL, the Ital- 
ian MEP and bearded prophet 
of a united Europe, whose 
vision lay behind the Europe- 
an Parliament’s report on 
European union and partly 
inspired the Single European 
Act. “Ah", sighed M Delors, 
“if only the Single Act. could 
be fully implemented in all its 
aspects!"

With Britain having taken 
over the presidency of the 
Council of Ministers from The 
Netherlands, some of Britain's 
EEC partners are asking 
whether Mrs Thatcher shares 
even a part of the 

Spinelli vision, or whether she 
counts herself among those 
who hope the Single Act will 
prove to be worth less than the 
paper it was written on at 
Luxembourg. 

Whatever Mrs Thatcher 
may wish, and however Britain 
chooses to interpret the Lux- 
embourg reforms, two of the 
reform measures are already 
becoming a reality: majority 
voting in the Council of Minis- 
ters, which meets in Brussels 
and Luxembourg, and greater 
powers for the European Par- 
liament, which sits at Strasr 
boorg. 

It will fall to British minis- 
ters to chair some particularly 
contentions EEC councils in 
the next six months; Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, as the presi- 
dent, inherits the question of 
EEC sanctions against South 
Africa and the trade war with 
America, together with any 
other foreign issues which 
arise unexpectedly, as Libyan 
terrorism and Chernobyl did 
under the Dutch presidency. 

Mr Michael Jopling, as 
Agriculture Minister, has the 
unenviable task of putting into 
practice Mrs Thatcher’s de- 
clared aim of reforming the 
wasteful and expensive Com- 
mon Agricultural Policy and 
reducing tbe food surpluses, 
while protecting his British 
farmers. 

Mr Nigel Lawson, as Chan- 
cellor, tokes the chair at 
finance councils with a brief to 
put an end to what earlier this 
year he called “horrific EEC 
overspending" while also 
somehow agreeing aliudget for 
1987. 

But under the Single Act, 
key economic and internal 
market questions (though not 
foreign issues) no longer re- 
quire unanimity in the Council 
of Ministers for proposals to 
become law. 

Qualified majority voting 


were a reality. 

Britain will thus preside 
over tbe dwindling of the 
national veto, which has been 
used since the “Luxembourg 
compromise" of 1966 to block 
EEC laws judged to be con- 
trary to a “vital national 
interest". 

This seems likely to rein- 
force the impression in Britain 
that decisions are being taken 
by “Brussels", even when 
what is meant is a decision by 
the Twelve as a whole. 

For Westminster, the an- 
swer lies in closer scrutiny of - 
EEC decisions 'by national 
parliaments. But the directly- 
elected members of the Euro- 
pean Parliament, including 
British Euro-MPs, see a solu- 
tion in greater control by the 
elected representatives of the 
peoples of the Twelve at 
Strasbourg. 

Is this realistic? In the short 
term, almost certainly not 
Under the Single Act, the 
European Parliament has a 
second reading of legislation. 
But it is stlu primarily a 



Mr Jopling: In the 
agriculture hot-seat 
consultative rather than deci- 
sion-making body. Eoro-MPs 
tirelessly promote their views 
and activities. But many are 
elected on a very low turnout 
(not least in Britain), and 
despite an injection of high 
quality MEPs from Spain and 
Portugal, they tend to be of 
lower calibre than deputies to 
national parliaments. 

Above all tbe European 
Parliament despite its pala- 
tial premises and lavish ex- 
penses, still has no say at all in 
farm spending in the EEC 
budget which accounts for by 
far the bulk of the EEC 
expenditure. 

Nothing Britain can do in its 
brief period of- office seems 
likely to reverse this process, 
under which power in toe EEC 
continues to shift, to Brussels 
institutions without a corre- 
sponding rise in toe power of 
popularly-elected bodies over 
the growing EEC bureau- 
cracies. 


Greek group charged

British Rail doesn’t 


stop here any more 


You'll find many journeys far easier when you're travelling 
between the North-West and the South, across London. Because 
now you can make the trip in one train, without the midway dash 
from one terminus to another. 

Just stay comfortably on board and you'll find yourself 
travelling the new Intercity Cross-London line. Passing through 
the freshly redecorated Kensington Olympia station. And on to 
your final destination in Kent Surrey or Sussex. (There is even a 
direct link to Gatwick.) 

In the next year or two, well also be reopening the Snow 
Hill Tunnel, which runs under the City of London to resurface at 
Blackfriars. This new Thames Link service will allow yet more 
direct journeys to the South. 184 new coaches are being built to 
operate it 


A group of prominent 
Greek intellectuals, who went 
on the air on Monday to 
challenge the state monopoly 
of radio and television, have 
been charged under the radio 
piracy law and face jail terms 
of up to five years. 

Their radio station, calling 
itself “Channel 15". after arti- 
cle 15 of the constitution 
which they invoked, broadcast 
for about 70 minutes while a 
public prosecutor and the 
police were trying to switch off 
the station and confiscate the 
equipment. 

Seventeen of the 34 mem- 
bers of the self-styled “Action 
Group for a Free Radio and 
Television", present at the 
lime, assumed collective re- 
sponsibility. They were de- 
tained briefly. 

They included writers, jour- 
nalists and lawyers, as well as 
Mr Phaidon Vegleris. Profes- 
sor Emeritus of Constitutional 
Law at Athens University. 
Their political affiliations cov- 
er a broad spectrum of 


ideologies from right to left 

The group argues that al- 
though article 15 of the consti- 
tution refers to the “direct 
control" of the slate on radio 
and television, this right is not 
specifically exclusive. 

They have appealed to the 
Council of State, the highest 
administrative tribunal, to de- 
clare unconstitutional the de- 
crees banning private stations. 

Successive Greek govern- 
ments have zealously main- 
tained exclusive control of the 
audio-visual media. In recent 
years the Socialist Govern- 
ment has even opposed a 
European Community project 
for a European satellite televi- 
sion station, on toe .ground 
toat this could threaten 
Greece’s cultural identity. 

TTiis argument was invoked 
again yesterday by a govern- 
ment spokesman. He said 
everyone was entitled to his 
opinion, but there was a 
procedure for changing the 
Jaws and that went through

'After Havana's brief affair only bexnade lo workers in the

?and K , ~cr . 

| The drive for a revival of 
^socialist Idealism and an ad- 
[ministrative battle against 
’chronic . inefficiency began ' 
Si with a keynote speech by Dr! 
2 Castro in April, on the anni- 
jversary of the . formal proda- . 
imaiion of socialism in Cuba. 

L He attacked corruption and 
l profiteering, especially in the 
[construction industry, the 
£ bo using market and the spe- 
5 dal markets where small 

f farmers were allowed to sell 
some produce directly to the 
'.public at uncontrolled prices, 
t Since then, the farmers’ 
^markets have been taken over

tradesmen, who have been 
licensed to work on their own 
account since 1981. In re- 
marks which appeared to 
presage an official clampdown 
on their activities, he accused 

them of being parasites on the 
public sector of the economy. 
Dr Castro asked the 3,500 


^jople gathered in Havana's 


n«.» Marx Theatre whether a 
Communist should possess la 
licence to be selfemployed, 
and received a resounding 
“no” in reply. 

Summing up Cuba’s eco- 
nomic reforms in recent years, 
he concluded: “I am not 
saying that everything was 
incorrect, but a whole series of 
errors were committed and 
unquestionably these included 
errors of concept and ideo- 

°¥he recent two-day confer- 
ence in Havana also consid- 
ered problems hindering 
economic effidency, such as 
absenteeism, over-stocking, 
poor accounting practices and 
ihe long delays experienced in 
completing several key 
projects. But it came up with 
few solutions. 


Auschwitz 
twins 
threaten 
Bonn fast 


Bolin (AFP) - Ope hun- 
dred twins who survived ex- 
periments on diem, by the 
notorious SS doctor, Joseph 
Mengele at the Nazi death 
ramp Auschwitz, threatened 
yesterday to go on hunger 
strike outside the Bundestag 
(Parliament) if the West Ger- 
man Government continues to 
refuse them compensation and 
medical aid. 

Mrs Vera KrigeU represent-

don fighting for their cause, 
lid that 


said that 1300 twins were 
killed in Auschwitz by Dr 
Mengele. 

Her organization represents 
100 S xv ivors of the ISO twins 


aw jmi vuvip 

— babies and infants — who 
were found alive when the 
camp was liberated in 1945. 

She told a press conference 
here: “Eight of these survivors 
are seriously ill from the after- 
effects of these experiments, 
ami they need $20,000 for 
operations and treatment if 
they are to live. But they have 
only received a few thousand 
marks, the same amount given 
to otiinary prisoners to cover 
their tune In the camp." 

Mrs KrigeLi herself a twin 
freed from the camp at the age 
of seven, asked.*** Does the 
German Government want to 
wait until they die off one by 
one? If they do nothing, then I 
will bring these 100 twins to 
Bonn where they will go on 
hunger strike, chained outside 
the Bundestag ." 



Abe joins race to 
succeed Nakasone 


From David Watts, Tokyo 


Mr Shintaro Abe, Japan's 
Foreign Minister, is to run for 
the premiership in autumn, 
finally announcing yesterday 
what everyone has known for 
some time. 

He made the announce- 
ment at an election press 
conference not long after re- 
porting a breakthrough on 
Japanese visits to graves on 
the Soviet-occupied Nonhem 
Islands. He said he had found 
a “sense of mission" on the 
campaign trail 

Undo* an understanding 
with the Soviet Union, Japa- 
nese will be able to resume 
visits to the graves of relatives 
on Soviet-occupied territory 
without visas. The under- 
standing follows Mr Abe's 
visit to Moscow last month. 

That he announced his can- 
didacy, “providing there is 
support from the party," on 
the same day is no co- 
incidence. 

He has been trying to build 
an image as a mover and 
shaker in foreign policy in the 
last few weeks to bolster his 


chances of winning the presi- 
dency of the Liberal Demo- 
cratic Party, which carries

The key — r -~ 

bcen the "Abe doctrine on 
improving relations with oth- 
er Asian countries, 

Mr Abe appears to be the 
front-runner to replace Mr 
Yasuhiro Nakasone as Prime 
Minister when his term runs 
out in October. . ... , 

The other candidate is likely 
to be Mr Kiichi Miyazawa, a 
former foreign minister, who 
appears to have overtaken the 
Finance Minister, Mr Noboru 
Takes hi la, whose chances 
have declined as the value of 
the yen has risen. 

Whether any of them suc- 
ceeds in October is an open 
question. If the LDP has a 
successful election at the 
weekend under the steward- 
ship of Mr Nakasone the 
chances are good that he will 
win at least an extension of his 
term, if not a change in party 
rules that would allow him a 
third term as Prime Minister.

Delhi - Mr B K Khullar, a 
leading Hindu activist, es- 
caped unharmed yesterday in 
an assassination attempt by 
Sikh militants in Jullundar, in 
Punjab, but a passerby was 
killed and two police body- 
guards were injured in the 
shoot-out that followed (Our 
Correspondent writes). 


Mr Khullar was attacked by 
at least four gunmen in the 
market town of Jullundar, 50 
miles southeast of Amritsar. 
His group advocates Hindu- 
Muslim co-operation. 

It was the second attempt 
on Mr Khullart life since last 
September, when his brother 
and another relative died.

Philippines two days before he

SPECTRUM 


For crying out 


Meted Gomafl 


loud, be quiet 


Noise in Britain is being blamed for an increase in stress 
and violence, yet the powers to deal with it are limited. 
Michael Church reports on the men out to keep the peace 


Doctors know what it can do 
to the circulation of the blood, 
and psychologists know its 
disastrous effects on work. 
Psychiatrists have to deal with 
the stress it creates, and 
magistrates with the violence 
it can unleash. 

Public complaints about it 
are now spiralling so fast that 
the Department of the Envi- 
ronment itself is worried. 
Forget (if the Prime Minister 
will let us) litter, and forget 
(for a moment) delinquency; 
the greatest scourge of con- 
temporary life is noise. 

The problem is not new. A 
hundred years ago Thomas 
Carlyle was driven to build a 
“well-deafened room** on the 
roof of his house in Cheyne 
Row, Chelsea, to escape his 
neighbours' pianos and crow- 
ing coda, not to mention the 
organ-grinders and metal- 
wheeled carts in the street, it 
didn't work: he was then 
maddened by a new battery of 
noises, including river hooters 
and railway whistles. 

If the neurotic sage were 
plagued with these problems 
today he might find himself 
consulting Bill Campbell, the 
tenacious Glaswegian who is 
one of those dealing with noise 
for Kensington and Chelsea's 
environmental health 
department 

And Campbell would in- 
deed be able to help. If the 
neighbours proved intracta- 
ble. he would serve notices 
restricting the noises to specif- 
ic times. If they were ignored, 
he would prosecute. Carlyle's 
organ-grinders would proba- 
bly come under a code of 
practice like the one which 
limits the duration of ice- 
cream chimes. As for the 
hooters, whistles and carts - 
well, he should be so lucky. 

The noise of 1986 would 
drive him out of his mind. 
Industrial pumps and com-? 


maritan, part policeman - is 
to realize the importance of 
this service. 

The afternoon was spent 
prosecuting builders who had 
disobeyed abatement notices, 
but now a chiller outside a 
Chinese restaurant is keeping 
people awake. Campbell goes 
and listens, then politely 
marches in waving his card 
They are sorry. He too is 
sorry, but the machine is 
faulty and will have to be 
replaced His bleeper goes 
again: a party. It's not hard to 
find — a flat in the King's 
Road and the whole block is 
echoing with the din. 

First' to the complainants, a 
weary middle-aged couple 
whose floor is heaving with 


‘Grown men 
sit weeping 
as the kids 
scream at 
the noise’ 


the bass thump from below. 
He goes and knocks on the 
offending door. The host ex- 
presses shock that a chap has 
to work so late and why 
doesn't he come in fora drink? 


pressors, road and air traffic, 
burglar alarms, domestic oow- 


burglar alarms, domestic pow- 
er tools, and above all music — 
music to the point where it 
becomes an aggressive 
weapon. 

In industry, with the elegant 
new science of anti-sound the 
disease is belatedly finding its 
cure. Cars and aeroplanes are 
growing more numerous, but 
also quieter. It is in that 
embattled sphere known offi- 
cially as “neighbourhood 
noise" that the disease is 
rampaging out of control: 
where the population is dens- 
est and the walls are thinnest, 
Britons are driving one anoth- 
er mad 

Bill Campbell and his col- 
leagues have recently institut- 
ed a round-the-dock hotline 
for local residents at the end of 
their tether. To watch him in 
action in the small hours of a 
Sunday morning — pari sa- 


Campbell apologizes for be- 
ing a killjoy, buU.in the event 
it's all quite amicable. The 
bleeper again: another party, 
which turns out to be only 
embers by the time we arrive; 
so no problem. Bleeper again: 
a burglar alarm, owner 
abroad many complaints. 
Nothing he can do till Mon- 
day, but then he can do a lot, 
though it may lake an entry

Party patrolling can be both 
difficult and dangerous, par- 
ticularly when the gathering is 
a covertly commercial 
venture. 


big business, and you can get 
two or three going on the same 
estate at once. 

"You go into the 
neighbouring flats and grown 
men are just sitting . there 
weeping and the kids are 
screaming — it's easy to under- 
stand how violence can start." 

The police are powerless to 
act on noise alone, so the key 
role of an environmental 
health officer is currently in- 
terpreted in a variety of ways. 
In the London borough of 
Haringey they don't attempt 
to silence a party in full swing. 
“If you break a party up, you 
get broken heads", as one 
officer put it. Some environ- 
mental health offices invoke 
police protection: others 
would rather die. 

Reynolds thinks that 
though the fines are adequate 
in theory, they often have little 
practical effect. “Many pay 
parties are given by people on 
supplementary benefit, so the 
fine is either paid for them, or 
is levied at 50p a week, which 
is no deterrent.” 

One alternative, be believes, 
would be the power to arrest 
persistent offenders. “At the 
moment, if the fly boys are 
summonsed and choose not to 
come to court, there's nothing 
you. can do.” Seizure of equip- 
ment is another theoretical 
possibility, though here too 
the environmental health offi- 
cers are divided. 

Reynolds reckons that half 
the problems he encounters 
are the result of rotten plan- 
ning and design, a view ech- 
oed by everyone in his 
business. It is also echoed in a 
report published this week by 



the National Society for Clean 
Air*. When old houses are 
broken up into flats, the walls 
are just not strong enough to 
bear the weight of solid floors, 
and other kinds of insulation 
are expensive. It doesn't take a 
very noisy family to drive 
their neighbours mad if the 
only thing separating them is a 
layer of wood and a layer of 
plaster. 

The report cites a recent 
High Court case where the 
London borough of Newham 
won an appeal against the 
Department of the Environ- 


ment. The Government had 
tried to argue that sound 
insulation was not a planning 
matter, the borough was trying 
io prevent a housing associa- 
tion from building' yet more 
dwellings which resonate like 
tea-chests. 

If the message of that case is 
hopeful, the implications of 
another noted by the report 
are explosive. A magistrate 
recently upheld a complaint 
by a council tenant against her 
landlord (the borough of 
Southwark) because of 
instrusive noise from upstairs. 


AIR TRAFFIC: Complaints 
to the Department of Trans- 
port (CAPS Division) at 2 
Mars ham . Street, London 
SW1P 3EB; the 24-honr an- 
swering service is on 01-232 
7172/3. 


Paul Reynolds, environ- 
mental health- officer for an- 
other London borough with a 
lot of council estates, recalls 
with a shiver the night a brick 
missed him by inches, thrown 
from a balcony six floors up. 
His crime had been to ask 
politely whether the occupants 
of the flat might quieten the 
party which had been going 
continuously for two days so 
that the neighbours might get 
some sleep. 

“Pay parties” of this sort are 
primarily a West Indian tradi- 
tion, with the flat let to an 
entrepreneur who charges an 
entrance fee. “All sorts of 
illicit deals go on at these 
things”, says Reynolds. “It's 


BUILDING SITES: Local 
authorities can specify work- 
ing hours and types of 
machinery. 


COUNCILS: Local authori- 
ties can control noise, even 
when it is merely expected to 
occur. Local environmental 
health offices are obliged by 
statute to investigate, u they 
agree that the noise consti- 
tutes a genuine nuisance, and 
if talks fail, they will serve a 
notice on the person causing 
the noise. If the recipient 
fails to comply, the local 
authority can prosecute. 
Drawback: this can take sev- 
eral months. 


CIVIL ACTION: You may 
seek an Injunction to restrain 


someone from continuing a 
nuisance. Drawback: very ex- 
pensive, outcome uncertain. 
CODES OF PRACTICE: 
Recognized in court as a 
yardstick, they cover burglar 
alarms, ice-cream van 
chimes, and model planes. 
COURTS: Contact the clerk 
of the magistrates’ court (in 
England and Wales) or die 
Sheriff’s Office (in Scotland) 
who mD explain the proce- 
dure. Keep a written record of 
the dates, times and duration 
and nature of the noise. If the 
magistrates decide yon have 
an arguable case they will 
serve a summons on the 
person responsible. If they 
eventually decide in your 
favour they will serve an 
abatement order. Drawbacks:

T he Jeu de Paume, one of 
the most loved and 
visited art galleries in 
the world, is to close on 
August 18 afier housing the 
world's most important col- 
lection of impressionist art for 
nearly 40 years. 

The collection is to be 
moved into the vast, airy 
spaces , of the new Musee 
d'Orsay on the other side of 
the Seine. But however well- 
equipped the new gallery, it 
will never be able to replace 
the intimacy and charm of the 
little gem set in the Tuileries 
gardens. 

_ Like its twin on the other 
side of the gardens, the Jeu de 
Paume (meaning real tennis) 
was originally intended to 
house an orangerie. But Em- 
peror Napoleon II! seized on 
it as the perfect place to install 
a real tennis court for his son. 

The building was opened 
with great pomp in January 
1862 - by coincidence the 
same year as a number of 
unknown young French paint- 
ers began to abandon their 
studios in Paris to set up their 
easels in the open air in the 
countryside around the city 
and just one year before . 
Manet exhibited his 

“Dejeuner sur I'herbe” in the 
so-called “salon des refuses” 
after it had been refused entry 
into the official “Salon". 

It was in 1 890 that the first 
impressionist work was ac- 
cepted by a French museum, 
and over the following years. 
France's now magnificent im- 
pressionist collection was 

slnu.lv hint* «»r» "• l * ' • 



Last look: the intimacy and cnarm oi the Jen de Paume 


Luxembourg Museum and 
then in the Louvre. Although 
the Jeu de Paume bad long 
ceased to serve as a place of 
sport, having been trans- 
formed into an art gallery in 
1 909, it was not until after the 
Second World War that it 
officially became the “Musee 
d'lmpressionisme”, taking 
over many of the Louvre’s 
impressionist works. 


N ow it has become a 
victim of its own suc- 
cess. vastly overcrowd- 
ed with paintings and visitors. 
Despite its small size — only 
16.500 sq ft of exhibition 
space — it is visited by 700.000 
people a year. It has no 
cloakroom, no rooms for au- 
dio-visual displays, and space 
for showing only 250 to 300 of 
its collection of 700 impress 
sionist works. Something had 
to give. 

Plans for convening the 
disused Care d'Orsay, togeth- 
er with the adjoining hotel, 
into a museum began to take 
form soon after the hotel was 
closed in 1973. The idea was 
to turn the complex, magnifi- 
cently situated on the south 
bank of the Seine, opposite the 
Tuileries. into a museum for 


photography, and decorative 
arts as well as painting .and 
sculpture — covering the peri- 
od 1850 to 1914. thereby 
forming a link between the 
more traditional works in the 
Louvre and the 20th century 
art in the Pompidou centre.' 1 

Approval was given by the 
government in 1978. but ris- 
ing costs led to delays. Yester- 
day. however.it was 
announced that the opening 
will take place this December. 
The museum expects to re- 
ceive between two and three 
million visitors a year. 

With nearly 500,000 sq ft of 
usable space, the museum will 
house 2,300 works, of which 
about half, including some 
700 impressionist paintings, 
will be on permanent display. 
The works will be taken for the 
most part from existing collec- 
tions at the Louvre, the Jeu de 
Paume. and the Palais de 
Tokyo in Paris, but will also 
include several hundred new 
acquisitions. 

The Jeu de Paume itself will 
not die, however. After reno- 
vation and conversion works, 
it is due to be reopened in 
1988 as a gallery for tempo- 
rary an exhibitions. 


Hi-tech lessons 
for tiny tots 


St 


( 


H appiness for Stuart 
Sexton, the former po- 
litical adviser to Sir 
Keith Joseph, is a vandalized 
old school complete with 
broken glass, paint-spattered 
. carpets, debris, and five old 
boilers on which he has 
trained himself to be a master 
stoker. 

Sexton, who lost his politi- 
cal job when Sir Keith re- 
signed recently as Secretary 
of State for Education and 
Science, is fulfilling a drain: 
“I am turning this place into 
the kind of school that could 
start a revolution in primary 
education.” 

Sexton's dream of a 
superschool will get a big 
boost today when Margaret 
Thatcher bops on a bus 
outside 10 Downing Street 
No ordinary bus though: a 
showcase for Sexton's ideas, 
it contains a travelling exhibi- 
tion showing how children as 
young as three can be given a 
good grasp of modern tech- 
nology and engineering. 

“During my years at the 
DES I found a frustrating 
amount of resistance to the 
teaching of technology to very 
young children”, Sexton says. 
“Primary children are ne- 
glected - technology teaching 
tends not to start until the 
pupil is abont 14, and it is 
often restricted to half an 
hoar a week. I feel that it 
should be part or the curricu- 
lum from a very early age. Bat 
it was difficult to get people to 
listen. Obviously I had to do 
something practical to start 
change in thinking.” 

In 1981 he founded the 
Independent Primary and 
Secondary Education Trust, a 
charity whose patroift include 
Warwick Hele, High Master 
of St Paul's School, Sir John 
Hoskyns, director general of 
the Institute of Directors, Sir 
Terence Beckett, director 
general of the Confederation 
of British Industry, and Lord 
Chappie. 

“My dream was to found a 
school following traditional 
teaching methods, giving a 
good grounding In English, 
mathematics and science, but 
also one with an emphasis on 
practical skills, engineering 
and modern technology”, 
Sexton says. “Even very 
young children can grasp the 
elements of computers, ma- 
chines and electronics. We 
aim to invite them into It and - 
get them excited about it.” 


People who live in flat conver- 
sions which transmit intoler- 
‘ able noise now have a chance 
of successfully suing their 
landlords for nuisance. 

Until the Government axed 
it in 1981 this vast pollution 
did at least have a quango to 
itelf — the Noise’ Advisory 
Council. A new body called 
the Noise Council was formed 
this year (without government 
help). Whether the council, 
with its limited manpower 
and resources, will square up 
effectively to the challenge is a 
moot point. But it has already 
drawn attention to the fact 
that the national building 
regulations do not allow for 
"post-construction perfor- 
mance checking”. 

There is a big educational 
job to be done - on engineers, 
architects, magistrates, and on 
midnight drillers, bangers and 
ghetto blasters. Specific im- 
provements could be en- 
forced. Pilots at Heathrow 
should get financial incentives 
for landing quietly, as they do 
in Manchester. Police sirens 
should be quieter. 

The police in Greece can 
fine noisemakers on the spot 
That may be too tough for 
English tastes, but should our 
police not have some powers 
to limit noise? Or would that 
lead to worse infringements 
on freedom? Should the exist- 
ing cumbersome legal process 
be streamlined.? 

It boils down to questions of 
rights and liberties. But under- 
lying everything is the issue of 
our common sanity.

so the large school 10 
classrooms, laboratories, a 
home economics department 
and a hall — remained empty 
and neglected. Then vandals 
set to work. 

Sexton showed me round 
classrooms where every pane 
of glass had been smashed, 
paint thrown over the carpets 
and fittings broken. The emp- 
ty swimming pool was full of 
broken glass. But his enthusi- 
asm Is undiminished. 

“My family have joined in 4" 
and are helping with the great 
clean-up”, he says. “We are 
scrubbing floors, cleaning 
carpets and mending win- 
dows. We also get help from 
young offenders doing com- 
munity service.”

T hen began the search 
for a suitable school 
site. “Things moved 
slowly, money had to be 
raised, and our supporters 
began to get impatient” But 
the solution lay almost on 
Sexton's doorstep — 
Warlingham Park School, 
Surrey, a few miles from his 
home in Sand erst ead. 

Founded in 1834 as a 
Church of England middle 
school, Warlingham Park 
once had 350 pupils. But rolls 
fell as a result of population 
decline and dissatisfaction 
with the quality of the school, 
and two years ago Surrey 
County Council dosed it Its 
Green Belt site meant it could 
not be demolished to make 
way for other developments. 


Stuart Sexton: ‘My dream’ 

The trust has a five-year 
lease from Surrey County 
Council. with an optionto buy 
or renew at the end.“We have 
raised £25,000 by public ap- 
peal but we need £50,000 
quickly as we are opening the 
school in September”, Sexton 
says. “The bus, provided by 
British School Technology in 
Bedford, with whom we are 
working dosely, will be at the 
school this weekend for an 
open-day exhibition. We hope & 
that parents will want to come ’ 
and see what we are doing.” 
(British School Technology, 
largely funded by the Depart- 
ment of Trade and Industry, 
develops equipment and tech- 
niques aimed at teaching 
technology in a lively way.) 

Sexton will charge fees - 
£150 per term for the nursery 
pupils, £375 for children up to 
seven, and £415 for over 
sevens. He plans to take 
children up to the age of 1 2, or 
13 if there Is a demand. 

“The idea of the school is 
not, of course, simply to 
produce engineers and 
technologists”, says Sexton, 
“bnt to create in the children 
an appreciation and under- >> 
stand in g of technology — even 
if they end up as doctors, 
lawyers and classicists.”

CROSSWORD^ 


beam the best of our 
TV to Europe 



frol Has lam’s . first seven 
interviews for her new job 
took place while she was 
participating in a 10-week 
executive progr amm e that 
. included a weekend on an Outward 
Bound course m the Lake District. 
There- she was expected- to step 
physically off a high wire , into the 

• ™ known at one moment and being 

■ head-hunted to do much the same 
professionally the next 

In both cases; Hasiam jumped, and 
this week she begins, work offi ciall y as 
' director- of programmes for the new 

- ^satellite television company, Super- 
channel. The appointment makes her 
one of die most high-powered women 

■ in British broadcasting and puts her 
among the country's top female 
executives. ■ 

■ Hasiam regards it as the latest 
' challenge in a career that she insist 

owes more than a little to luck. “I 
suppose I must be ambitious or I 
wouldn’t be doing what Fm doing”, 

, she says. “But Fm not ambitious to the 
exclusion of eveiytbiqg else.” 

As one of Channel Foil’s most 
. •. dynamic commissioning editors for 
.the last five years, she has bom 
! responsible for some of the company’s 
•more prestigious programmes, such as 
Heart of the Dragon, Africa and the 
- award-winning Fragile Earth. “I think 
it's terribly . important that British 
television isn't too parochial, and the 
more programming dial tells us about 
.. Europe and the rest of the world — 

• provided people like it and watch it — 
the more we are prevented from 

. becoming too insular”. She says. 

• She also did much to steer the 
channel into areas ignored previously 
by British television, dealing with such 
delicate subjects as sexuality and 
emotions. “One of the things I've tried 
to do-is to. introduce. programmes in 
the whole health area and tty to. shift 
the way that health is covered by 
] television.” Such trail-blazing docu- 
mentaries have generated some of. the 
channeTs best audience responses. 
“I’ve commissioned programmes that 
•- 1 think would aoi have beim commis- 
sioned by 'television departments in ; 
which, men were jnaking all : the 
decisions”, Hasiam claims. 

. . . She is a blonde .42-year-old who fell 
into broadcasting more or less by 

• ' accident. The convent-educated only 
. child of a north London actuary, she 

fofiowad an “unremarkable but 
. enjoyable” childhood by reading phi- 
losophy, social sciences and English at 
Leicester University; “I had no idea 
what I wanted to do, but I was quite in- 
terested in the idea of teaching. ” 

Even so, when, as a 2lst birthday 

- present, her parents offered her the 
cfaoiceof staying on at university to do 
a diploma in education or being given 
a one-way ticket to America, die 
jumped at the latter. She and a girl 
. friend spent a year travelling around 
America, Canada and Mexico where 
die obtained jobs as a waitress in Los 
Angeles and as a cashier trainee at the 

■ Wells Fargo Bank in San Franciso. 

Bade in England she lectured in 



Carol Hashun, SuperchanneTs new director of programmes: “I'm not ambitious to the exclusion of everything else* 


social studies at a couple of London 
polytechnics before training in psy- 
. chotherapy, which gave her “insights 
that have been invaluable in a lot of 
working life since”. Her broadcasting 
debut came in Addis Ababa, to which 
die had travelled overland after 
deciding to explore Africa. 

. Just one week after arriving in the 
Ethiopian capital with a rucksack on 
her bark, .she was working as a radio 
producer ax the mass media centre on 
a series about tiie history of Africa. For 
her research she pored over theTjooks 
of Basil Davidson, the Africa expert, 
in foe local library “little knowing that 
: 13 years later 1 would actually get foe 
chance to commission him to work on 
a real history of Africa for Channel 
Four". 


W hile in Addis Ababa she 
also took part in a 
television training 
course run by a British 
Council officer to whom 
she is now married. Then, back in 
England, she applied for a job at the 
BBC and was taken on as a producer in 
radio and television to launch foe 
Open University, where she stayed for 
foe next 1 1 years. 

She regards foe experience she 
gained there as invaluable because it 
gave her the opportunity to acquire 
practical skills in every area of 
television production. The feet that 


foe programmes were aimed at a small 
but critical audience made her aware 
of audience needs and gave her a 
respect for viewers that foe feels many 
broadcasters lack. 

It was something that stood her in 
good stead when foe joined Channel 
Four, at its inception in 1981, as one of 
chief executive Jeremy Isaacs's bright 
new feces. “I think Jeremy took a 
chance on appointing people who were 
not widely known in foe industry, but 
it certainly meant that we arrived with 
no preconceptions and that we all had 
a lot of new, fresh ideas”, says Hasiam. 

Her own boundless energy and 
enthusiasm proved crucial for foe job, 
which frequently involved working up 
to 80 hours a week, starting early in the 
morning before dropping her children, 
Charlotte, now II, and Oliver, 10, at 
schooL Her husband. Piers Pendred, is 
still with foe British Council, currently 
as director of public affairs. 

Haslam’s new appointment gives 
her overall responsibility for the 
programming of the 24-hour satellite 
service that win beam the most 
relevant British programmes to En- 
gUsh-spealangcable television viewers 
in Europe. She regards cable and 
satellite television as “the next step for 
broadcasting. Britain has been a bit 
slow gening off the ground. It’s such 
an exciting area to be involved in 
budding.” 


As for her own career, foe is looking 
no further ahead than the immediate 
fiiture: “If you had asked me a year ago 
there was no way I would have 
foreseen this. The industry is changing 
so fast.” 


S he is critical of foe lack of 
women in television's top 
jobs: “It’s strange because they 
are well represented in foe 
middle levels, and then they 
suddenly disappear as you go up the 
hierarchy. I don't know whether it's 
because they don't warn to do foe jobs, 
or because they don't put themselves 
forward, or because they don’t per- 
form foe right sort of functions.” 

When it comes to picking her own 
team — “people I expect to be as 
enthusiastic as I am” — foe stresses 
that foe will be “choosing the best 
person for foe job. I just feel that some 
of the best people are women.” 

She sees herself as being competitive 
“but I also think Tm quite co- 
operative. I actually like working as a 
part of a team as well as an individual 
I would never take on a job if I .felt it 
would do real damage to my family or 
destroy my domestic life, but so far it 
hasn’t been too difficult 
“I have a very good relationship 
with my husband and children, and 
my family is without question the 
most important thing in my life.”

4 It Is a strange facet of 
English law that leaves 
room for gazampers- J 
pondered this after we 
had been gazumped for 
foe third time in fairly quick 
succession. The Scots brook 
no such nonsense; their “letter 
of intent”, whereby foe vendor 
and the prospective purchaser 
sign binding documents us 
soon as an offer has been 
accepted, sees to that 
I doubt whether gaznmpers 
flourish elsewhere, eithe r, foe 
vary term, with its suggestion 
of slipshod silliness, sounds - 
though I say it with pain — as 
if it might be exclusive to this 

section of our isles. 

On our third gazumping, we 
were put to a great deal of 
trouble and no small expense. 
My husband, who is on the 
verge of retirement, saw a 
bookshop advertised in a local 
paper. He had mused foe idea 

owniog sndi an 
ment for many years. W e wer e 
ecstatic: foe price was wifow 
onr means, the nearby seaside 
location attractive, and foe 
timing, should we successfully 
purchase, exactly right to fit m 
with his fast days at work. 

“phone at once”, I said. 
-Offer the fall price. If we 
don’t jump 1“ Vriddy* some- 
one else will beat ns to it, as 
ihey have done twice before. 
My husband, being morecau- 
tfok made arrangements to 
go over foe property a*** 

He thought it unwise to offtt 
£ 60,000 for a shop he had not 
yet seen. 

The agent, a nice young 
chap, called for him rariy m 
foe morning, and ate a

The agent contacted foe

ceased owner, and phoned 
back next day; I answered. 
“She feds she wants to wait a 
bit to see if she can get a little 
more”* he said. 

“All .right", I said, “foil 
price.” 

“Oh, fine; Til tell her.” 

“There’ll be no two ways 
about it this time”, I told my 
husband. 

Onr offer was accepted; we 
contemplated our future career 
as book dealers with eagerness 
and delight Everything was 
ready for ns to start trading as 
soon as contracts were signed 
and foe settlement day agreed. 
“We've fallen on our feet this 
tune", I gleefally informed my 
husband. 

I cancelled our holiday in 
Norfolk, and invited most of 
our friends and relations for 


seaside holidays in the flat 


up at six to prepare the new 
line hi antique engravings we 
had decided to introduce. I 
already owned these, but spent 
money on materials needed to 
present then to foe public, 
such as expensive mounting 
card, rolls of Seliophane and 
display equipment 

“All tins is killing me”, I 
said to my husband, “but it is 
best to open with a splash.” 

We were allowed to put 
Opening Shortly notices in foe 
window. I was, of course, 
counting chickens, and I had 
certainly lived long enough to 
know better than to place 
reliance on the staunchness of 
human nature; after all we’d 
been let down twice before. 

Contracts were in the air 


when the nice young agent 
phoned. “Somebody has of- 
fered £4,000 more; the owner’s 
solicitors have advised her to 
take it up.” 

“But”, I expostulated, out- 
raged, to my husband, “we 
were promised; Fve spent time 
and money, and some of the 
best early mornings of my 
life.” 

“That’s life”, my husband 
said; pragmatic fellow. 

So now I am in Umbo, 
spinning; work prepared, mon- 
ey spent, emotions which had 
been channelled into the 
project with foe force of a 
Mow-lamp, swirling aimlessly 
in outer space. I dread foe 
outcome when they return to 
earth. 

Worst of afi, I must have 
been wrong about foe nice, 
amenable owner. The truth is, 
her attitude had reminded me 
of my mother who, 20 years 
before, had refused a further 
£10,000 for her house. “Oh 
no”, she had said indignantly, 
all that time ago, “it's already 
promised”. It wasn't that she 
was rich; I suppose she just 
had a few okMasluoaed 
virtues. 

Perhaps I had been letdown 
by other people somewhere 
aioag foe line as well although 
foe only intermediary I had 
personal dealings with was the 
estate agent My hope is that 
someone skilled in snch mat- 
ters wffl campaign to have-foe

country changed. 

“Don’t ever try to bay 
another bookshop, or anything 
else which has a roof, I said 
to my husband. “I couldn’t go 
through all that a fourth 
time.” 

I don't know whether he 
intends to act on my admoni- 
tion. If so, it means that his 
dream of selling books 
has gone down the 
drain. Perhaps he will 
think of something else 
to do when he retires.

More than 400.000 children Wearing glasses at 

in England wear glasses: how ° 

if y 


would you feel if your child 
was one of them? Oddly 
enough, the thought of 
putting a son or daughter in 
glasses can provoke surpris- 
ingly strong reactions, espe- 
cially considering that they 
can help correct a defect or 
give perfect vision to a child 
who has been living in a 
blurred world. 

Yet parents still hesitate 
and blame themselves or 
each other. Grandparents to 
total strangers are liable to 
observe that it's a shame, 
while other children may. 
tease gleefully the child who 
wears specs. 

Katie Nicholl has two chil- 
dren, Julian (nine) and Vic- 
toria (six). When Julian was 
six and a hall she took him 
for an eye test after she 
noticed he was squinting. 
Victoria was tested at the 
same time and both were 
prescribed glasses. Victoria 
was found to be very long- 
sighted — a feet which no one 
had realized — and, imjilte 
Julian, will always need to 
wear glasses. 

“Julian had to wear his for 
reading and television”, said 
Katie. “He didn't like them at 
all — he’s rather vain and felt 
they spoilt his looks. They 
also called him four-eyes at 
schooL He could live with the 
teasing, but he just didn't like 
the way he looked. However, 
we told him that if he wore 
his glasses when he was 
supposed to, he might not 
have to wear them when he 
was older. And in feet he 
doesn't need them any more. 

“We didn't have any prob- 
lems with Victoria. I did 
wonder if we would have any 
trouble when he stopped 
wearing bis, but by then she 
hated not being able to see 
properly without them. 

“I don’t have any reserva- 
tions about little girls — or 
little boys - in glasses. It 
didn’t upset me in the least 1 
couldn’t bear it if I couldn't 
see properly myself. But it 
does annoy me when 1 hear 
mothers making silly 
remarks.” 

Judy McGarry's daughter, 
Jordan, was four when she 
started to wear glasses. Judy 
says: “I bought her a heart- 
shaped parr from Cutler & 
Gross, which cost a fortune. I 
suppose it was my way of 
sugaring the pill. In feet, 
Jordan was thrilled at first 
But other people said things 
like ‘What a shame, she's 
such a sweet little thing’. 

“It became very hard to get 
her to wear them. All the ■ 
other children teased her. She 
had a spare pair of NHS 
glasses, ugly plastic practical 
things, which we needed be- 
cause the others were always 
being broken and cost a 
fortune to repair. But she 
refused to wear those at all • 

“It was just impossible. 
Being a working mother I 
wasn't around to nag all foe 
time. In any case, foe kind of 
advice you are given about 
doing a certain amount of 
close work with foe glasses on 


an early age can be a 
stigma for child and 


parent alike, but a 
pew voucher system 
will help to dispel 


the staid NHS look 


every day is virtually impos- 
sible to follow with young 
children. Days just arent like 
foat I feel so guilty that foe 
glasses didn’t help at all in foe 
end. But you are fighting a 
losing battle to make young 
children wear glasses in foe 
face of foe comments they 
have to put up with.” 

Even parents who wear 
glasses themselves — perhaps 
because they know some of 
foe disadvantages — are 
sometimes reluctant to accept 
foe news foat their child 
needs glasses. 

Vic Ward has worn glasses 


the trick. The next day .we 
went shopping. It was dread- 
ful. At that age Bella had no 
hair and she lad these glasses 
tied on with elastic. I could 
hear people-laughing. 

" “It's not so bad now foal 
Bella is getting on for five, but 
I used to get very angry. 1 felt 
like saying that she was nol 
wearing glasses to satisfy a 
whim 1 might be having or to 
attract attention but because 
she had to. Bella hereelf 
doesn’t seem to mind. 

' “I've never made a scene 
when she's broken a pair 1

there's anything she can't do 
if her ai 


because of her glasses. Now ! 
really don't mind about her 
glasses. The important thing 
is that she no longer has to go 
around with a blurred view of 
life.” 

life may be made easier for 
parents and children soon as 
foe old-style NHS glasses are 
destined to become a thing of 
the past. A new NHS voucher

WHY CmSTIANAlD AND QXFAM ARE SPEAKMG ON BEHALF OF THOSE WITHWH0M WE WORK: 


Community leaders who have been 
working effectively for the poor and for 
peaceful change, are among the 
thousands of South Africans who have 
been detained under the country-wide 
State of Emergency. 

These are partners with whom 
Christian Aid and Oxfam have been 
working for years- leaders of 
community organisations, trade 
unionists, and church workers like 
Ff. Smangaliso Mkhatshwa, Secretary 
General of the South African Catholic 
Bishops’ Conference, Rev. Abraham 
Maja, Executive Secretary of the 
Northern Transvaal Council of 
Churches, and Lesley Liddell, of the 
Western Province Council of Churches. 

The experience of our agencies, over 
the years during which we have sup- 
ported a range of community projects, 
confirms the report of the Common- 
wealth Eminent Persons Group; 


“...the quality of the country’s black 
leaders shines through.-Thelr 
achievement in brining about 
popular and trade union mobilisation 
fh the face of huge odds commands 
respect Their Idealism, their genuine 
sense of non-racialism, and their 
reaefiness not only to forget but to 
forgive, compel admiration. These are 
precious assets which a new South 
Africa wffl need." GPGntport jane legs) 


Apartheid is a direct cause of poverty 
and suffering; and these detentions 
make our efforts to alleviate that 
suffering increasingly difficult. 

Our South African partners ask us to 
tell our supporters in the UK and 
Ireland that whatever hardship 
sanctions bring in the shot term, they 
want our governments, along with the 
rest of the international community, to 
put effective pressure on the South 
African authorities to end apartheid.

THE TIMES 
DIARY 


Lobbying for 
Unesco 


A campaign is under way to secure 
Britain's re-entry to Unesco. Last 
December Mrs Thatcher followed 
President Reagan's lead and with- 
drew from the 158-nation group, 
complaining that it was badly 
managed and over-politicized. 
Yesterday evening several dozen 
MPs. peers, scientists and educa- 
tionalists met under the chairman- 
ship of Lord Ennals, president of 
the United Nations Association of 
Great Britain, to discuss a con- 
• certed programme of lobbying to 
‘ force the government to rejoin. A 
formidable supporter of re-entry is 
Lady Julia Huxley, widow of the 
organization's first director-gen- 
eral. Sir Julian Huxley. The 
campaign could embarrass Mrs 
Thatcher but will be welcomed by 
those British officials who, after 
months of diplomatic slogging, 
believed they bad achieved most 
of the reforms the government had 
been seeking. More about this 
hitherto clandestine campaign to- 
morrow. 


Far from foul 


Fears of unrulmess by the British 
soccer fans in Mexico were un- 
founded, for which Bob Webb, the 
British consul, must be the most 
thankful. He tells me that the final 
tally of Brits arrested during the 
tournament stands at 29, pretty 
low considering that some 6,000 
made the visit. Most of these 
arrests were for the unrelated 
offences of — and 1 use Webb's 
words — paddling in fountains or 
baring bottoms. One young man 
got off with a nominal fine after 
“failing to pa y respect to an 
Argentinian girl.” . 


Dribbled away 


Visitors generally, in fact, were 
more sinned against than sinning. 
Foreign embassies, including the 
British, had a steady stream of 
complaints from robbery victims. 
Mexican thievery has what you 
might call the Maradona touch — 
sleight of hand, rather than 
outright violence (they can run 
pretty fast as well). Stealth and 
ingenuity are the hallmarks, to the 
extent that pickpockets have made 
the underground, despite its flat 
fare of one tenth of a penny, into a 
virtual no-go area for tourists. The 
victim for whom I feel most sorry 
is a young Londoner whose soccer 
tickets were filched on the eve of 
the finaL 


Set aside 


Nicky Bird, the former publica- 
tion officer at the V& A, tele- 
phoned to point out that he has 
been “pushed sideways” to the 
new job of organizing events at the 
museum, not “sacked”, as my 
story stated yesterday. A fine, 
distinction, he admits.

Puffed out 


Brian Behan, brother of the late 
Brendan, is working on a new 
book. He will not tell me anything: 
about it because, he says, negotia- 
tions with publishers are still at a 
delicate stage. I shall wait and see 
if it is translated into Japanese foF 
use as a high school textbook, as 
was his autobiography, the ex- 
quisitely entitled With Breast 
Expanded. 

Sneezy, grumpy 

A new excuse for surly taxi 
drivers. The Lancet reports a 
survey of 100 London cabbies who 
admitted suffering from hayfever. 
A quarter of them said the 
condition was sometimes so se- 
vere that it was impossible to 
drive, and all complained of 
feeling “tense, miserable and bad- 
tempered” — especially’ in June 
and July. So what else is new? 


Gender bender 


A touch of farce on Birmingham 
city council's women's committee 
where Alan Blumenthal, the Tory 
opposition spokesman, has out-, 
raged his coltegues by referring to 
homosexuals as “perverts” and 
saying they should be barred from 
council employment. Even his 
own side seems to have turned on 
him. with one leading local Tory 
accusing him' of “blind prejudice” 
likely to dent the party's image. 
Blumenthal, who is one of only 
two males on the committee, and 
a seemingly implausible member 
of such a group, foils short of 
penitence. "Possibly 'deviant* 
might fiavebeen a better word." is 
as for as he will go. Does he then 
belie vein the aims of the women's 
committee? “No” is the blunt 
riposte. All right .then, can we 
expect his resignation soon? To 
which: “Why do people always ask ; 
me that?" Because you are there, 
Mr Blumenthal.

protectionism in electricity supply and let the winds of Competition idow 


It is in the long-term interests of 
consumers, raxpayers and miners 
alike that foe British coal industry ' 
be substantially liberalized. Since 
the end of the coal strike, instead 
of responding to suggestions for 
constructive reform, the govern- 
ment has pushed the coal and 
electricity supply industries into 
strengthening their blatantly un- 
competitive “joint understand- 
ing”. 

Under agreements since 1979 
the Central Electricity Generating 
Board has undertaken to buy mpst 
of its coal from the NCB (now 
Brilish Coal) in return for some 
restrictions '.on coal prices. BC, . 
which has been unsuccessful in 
finding new markets, leans heavily 
on the CEGB to take most of its 
output. The CEGB, in turn, has 
been coerced into collusion with 
BC because of government restric- 
tions on its choice of fuels; foe 
board can import only token - 
quantities of coal and . can bum 
only insignificant amounts of 
natural gas; the use of oil is 
frowned upon and electricity im- 
ports are constrained. 

In Britain, with limited hydro- 
electric potential, the only options, 
left are indigenous coaj and 
nuclear. Littte new nuclear plant 
will -be commissioned in the near- 
future and. after Chernobyl, it is 
doubtful that more win be - -or- 
dered So power stations will J 
remain dependent on British coal. 

The blest , form of the joint * 
understanding (though unpub- 
lished) appears to be that British • 
Coal will provide 95 per.ceni of : 
CEGB supplies over the. next .five 
years, leaving a market of only 
around 4 million tonnes a year for 
imports and private sector British 
coaL Of the 70 million tonnes a 
year provided by British Coat 
50 million tonnes will be. at an 
initial base price said to. be -about 
£46.6 per tonne, 10 million tonnes 
at a lower price related to the cost 
of imported coal and another 
10 million tonnes related, to the 
price of ofl. Eventually the highest 
price tranche will apparently be 
reduced to 40 million tonnes a 
year and the lower price tranches 
correspondingly increased By 
replacing real by simulated com- 
petition (from' oil and imported 
coal), the CEGB hopes to hold 
down the price of fuel provided by 
the supplier on which government 
policy obliges it to depend } 

No doubt the two industries jsee 
the joint understanding as^provid- 
ing stability of prices andsupphes. 

But for the community as a whole 
it is unsatisfactory that a. state- 
condoned restrictive practice 
should so influence coal and 
electricity prices with indirect 
effects on prices of other*' fuels. 
Prices set under bilateral monop- 
oly bargaining are unlikely. to be 
dose to what they would be in a 
competitive market Instead they 
depend on the respective bargain- 




a cosy 



scenes. 


A more inappropriate 
method of setting prices in two 
such important industries is hard 
to conceive. 

Despite the sharp fall in the 
world prices of oil, coal -and 
natural gas. the joint understand- 
ing means that British consumers 
ill merely suffer a rather smaller 


W] 


increase in electrcity prices than 
there would otherwise have been. 
The agreement isalso likely to be a 
serious blow to the small private 
mining sector, already severely 
restricted British Coal controls 
entry to private mining and die 
joint understanding regulates the 
markets which private miners can 
penetrate. The constraints on 
licensed operators are outdated 
and unnecessarily restrictive. 
Deep mines, for example, are 
limited to about 30 men under- 
ground (as they were on national- 
ization) and private opencast sites 
are limited to reserves of 35.000 
tonnes, or 50,000 tonnes on 
adjacent sites. Those who do. 
obtain licences have to pay royal- 
ties to British Coal. 


To add to these difficulties, 
private mines are now to be forced 
ing and political lobbying skiils of • to compete with imported coal 
the two sides, with government " within the very small power 
applying pressure behind* the generation market which is left 


after nationalized mines have 
made their guaranteed sales.' 
According to the Small Mines 
Federation, irrespective of the cost 
of their coal: sales by its members 
to power stations may be halved 
under the new agreement. 

- A possible argument for protect- 
ing British Coal is that mines 
should not be closed if the low 
world oil and coal prices are only 
temporary. In a coal market with 
competing private suppliers, 
mines would be kepi open pro- 
vided prices exceeded operating 
costs. Consumers might also be. 
prepared to pay some premium 
for British coal if they believed it 
to be particularly secure — though 
the the record of industrial conflict 
suggests that will never be the case 
under, state ownership. 

Wkh a general election 
approaching one can understand 
the government's reluctance to 
announce full-scale liberalization 
of the coal market, but it could at 
least make a start. For instance, 
the generating boards in England 
and Scotland should be allowed 
greater -freedom to choose fuels, 
thus reducing the costs of generat- 
ing power — including the cost of 
controlling emissions from high- 
sulphur British coal. The govern- 


ment also need? to. ensure that 
competition from private sector 
coal' producers is maintained and 
encouraged rather than forcibly 
contracted. Privately-owned 
.mines and reclamation operations 
appear to. produce some -of 
Britain's cheapest coaL Instead of 
being put out of business by an 
agreement between two national-, 
ized industries, the present restric- 
tions should be lifted so they can 
compete. Iris absurd that British 
Coal should decide whether or not 
-to licence potential competitors. 
Licences to -exploit coal reserves 
should be in the hands of the 
Department of Energy (as they are 
for oil and gas) with royalties paid 
both by British Coal and private 
producers direet to the Exchequer. 

With competing private suppli- 
ers, a more efficient industry 
■ would emerge; ensuring lower 
prices, greater security of supply 
and more jobs in ihe.economy as a 
whole, (and possibly in mining 
itself). The problem of un- 
economicpits should be dealt with 
by aid for miners and mining areas 
specifically targeted towards cases: 
of need rather than wasted, as 
much is now, in indiscriminate 
production subsidies. 

Despite its professed belief in 
competition^ foe government is 
making no progress towards lib- 
eralizing energy markets. Instead 
too great an emphasis is placed on 
revenue-raising privatization. Bri- 
tish Gas, for example, is being sold 
as a monopoly, with only token 
efforts to make the market more 
competitive..

Mega-bids: down but far from dead 


The outcome of the £1.8 biUion 
bid for Woolworth Holdings' by - 
Dixons Group will be known later, 
today. If Dixons -loses, : it. wflf 
indicate that bid fever, for foe 
moment, is on the wane. - . 

When Dixons first bid oa April 
3, excitement on the stockm&rket 
was intense. Woolwo'rth's share 
price rose by almost 50 per centlo 
920p, increasing the bomiMny's' 
value to more than £2 billion.' 
Dixons’ shares, unusuaUy for the 
bidding company;- also rose by- 
nearly 70p to 438p, indicating the. 
City's faith in its managemenLTbe 
City clearly expected a higher offer 
either by a rival bidder or by 
Dixons itself; but nonecame and 
Dixons refused to submit to some 
of the more exaggerated hopesof a 
bid of £10 a share. ■ j 

Since the unrealistic levels of 
early April Woolworth and Dix- 
ons have lost one quarter.of their 
market value.The fell is not due 
simply to Dixons’ refusal “to

become the victim of these fail- 
ures, despite its efforts to point out 
the difference between its at- 
tempted takeover, which it regards 

• as Teasohfcble and other, unrealis- 
tic,- mergers. 

The other tnulti-miflion pound 
takeovers this year were different 

■ m ttat'lhey were three-cornered 
fights. Guinness fought off Argyll

. question of the bid^target remain- 
ing independent. 

But these takeovers have also 
disappointed. Hanson Trust's 
share price is still trailing below 
levels achieved during the bid, as 
the market-digests the huge weight 
: of new Hanson share and convert- 
ible papeejand wonders what .the. 
group, now worth £47 billion, ran 
.do next. Guinness’s shares are also 


sluggish, even though the com- 
pany is expected to benefit enor- 
mously from its acquisition of 
Distillers. 

These disappointments are not 
solely responsible for the shift of 
opinion. Gty institutions are be- 
ing castigated for raring only 
about the iramediate.perfbrmance 
of their - funds, rather' than the 
long-term good of British in- 
dustry. '' 

Sir Gordon Borne, Director. 
General of - Fair Trading, last 
month attacked the “frothy and 
almost hysterical merger boom"' 
that had been sweeping- the Gty. 
He expressed worries about the 
costs of staging and: defending 
bids -the highest costs so far 
have been the estimated £145 mil- 
lion paid out by Argyll and* 
Guinness in the fight for Distillers, . 
This -argument applies less to the 
Woolworth bid because the issues 
at stake are about retailing and 
management Skills, -rather than' 
about investment ’ in industry, 
which is repaid over a longer 
.period.-. 

There is another reason for the 
City's change of opinion. A group 
of 15 Gty institutions, including 
the Prudential Corporation, 
backed tbe Woolworth manage- 
ment in its ‘-buy-out from the 
American parent three years ago 


■ The institutions were told that the 
task of turning Woolworth round 
would take five, to seven years. 
These 1 s£me institutions control 
just over 30 per cent of the shares- 
■ today. They would be accused of 
impatience, or worse, if. they were 
' ;to dttdr a management which has 
done well for them without giving 
it the chance to finish the job. 

The mega-bid boom may slow 
. down, but is unlikely to stop. Still 
iii train , is .Lloyds Bank’s £1.3 
billion bid for Standard Chartered 


Bank mid the Gty is busy guessing

Sel fridges and William H01 em- 
pire,' and Grand Metropolitan, the 
brewing and leisure conglomerate. 

- The size of these putative bid 
targets does raise the question of 
who would be big enough to play 
the. predator. Grand Met for 
example, is valued at £3.6 billion. 

Any bid in the next few months 
would clash- with the flotation of- 
British Gas. which aims to raise 
between £5 billion and £8 billion. 

- Tbe strain on the Gty's underwrit- 
ing capacity could prove intol- 
erable. British -Gas. as much as 
anything else, may temporarily 
dampen mega-bid mania. ‘‘

had been swollen by £3 billion. 

Now comes the moment of 
truth as the forces, not for the 
first time, have to tighten their 
-/ v. belts after seven years of 
v relative affluence. Mr Younger 
. announced • in this week’s 
Commons debate that £800 
.p million : would have to be 
■i:£p saved -from planned spending 
"ii i. over the next three years, in 
addition to about £200m 
_' r " which can be found by reduo 
"■y tions in the Falklands garrison. 

-j The *White Paper in May 
J ruled out the need either for a 
: r. > fundamental reappraisal of 
- priorities or to drop or reduce 
any principal commitment 
;^* T Mr Younger has now con- 
. ' ffrmed.thisby detailing a list of 
: readjustments to the procure- 
‘ ment budget. The Royal Navy 
will forfeit a new towed-array 
r-~- ; sonar for its Type-22 frigates; 
f- the Army will lose a new anti- 
armour mine; while the RAF ■ 
‘ * ' must brace itself for a reduc- 
tion in its latest batch of 18 
Harriers and. for late delivery 
of its fleet of Tornado 
strike/reconnaissance planes. .. 


The. services, may riot like 
these but they can live with 
them. The delay in the deliv- 
cry of Tornadoes is indeed 
prompted as much by the 
requirement to fulfil the large 
order for Saudi Arabia as that 
to hold down defence spend- 
ing/The Array will have cause 
to regret the cancellation of the 
•LAW anti-tank equipment 
But the dedsions so far dis- 
closed are bearable. The un- 
ease which has followed Mr 
Younger’s statement arises 
from the suspicion that these 
■ may not be alt 

The Defence Secretary’s ref- 
erence to a surface escort fleet 
for the Royal Navy of “about 
50” frigate/destroyers conceals 
the fact that the number is 
most likely to be 48. There are 
few observers who do not fear 
that further delays will creep 
into the warship building pro- 
gramme —a device which is 
irresistible for . Defence Sec- 
retaries in Mr Younger's 
shoes. (One way to save more 
than £JOOra in a hurry is to 
nudge a new frigate into the 
margins). 

Senior officers themselves 
admit that their appetite for 
“salami slicing” grows with 
age and experience, if only 
because when faced with the 
need to cut costs, it is generally 
preferable to the alternative. 
That alternative is to opt out of 
a commitment — which now- 
adays would generally mean a 
commitment to Nato — in or- 
der to ensure that one can 
carry out all other tasks un- 
impaired. 

To argue that Mr Younger 
should wield an axe rather 
than a carving knife, is to 
. preach a policy which requires 
more justification than pres- 
sure from the Treasury. Thus ■ 
to reduce the Navy’s presence 
in the Eastern Atlantic, to 
bring home a substantial part 
of BAOR,. or to cut back 
severely on the RAF would 
provoke serious political 
repercussions in the Western 
alliance. It is politically useful. 


if militarily risky, for troops to 
• remain at their posts with 
yesterday’s weapons rather 
than for them not to remain 
there at all. At least it reflects 
the political commitment 
which underpins the alliance. 

There is, however, a cut-off 
point beyond which the argu- 
ment might start to swing the 
other way. One wonders 
future governments, faced by 
the conundrum which has 
faced Mr Younger, might feel 
the same way. The glib answer 
is that they would solve it 
quickly by gening rid of the 
Trident missile programme 
But this would leave Europe 
without a Naio-com mined 
deterrent of its own. Not only 
that,: but the abandonment of 
Trident would take Britain out 
of the nuclear big five — 
almost certainly for ever — 
while the substitution for it of 
an alternative system would 
not necessarily cost less. In- 
deed, a submarine-launched 
cruise missile would probably 
cost more. 

The answer must be, as we 
have said before, for Nato to 
re-examine its own priorities 
in greater depth. That would at 
least clarify in Whitehall the 
areas of top priority and 
indicate those in which some 
flexibility might be found. 
Nato is still largely configured 
for the land of war it feared in 
1949 — an advance by the Red 
Army on the central front — 
when most of the challenges to 
the West and the NATO 
alliance are bring mounted 
outside the strict NATO area, 
mainly in the Third World. 
Surely NATO's future plan- 
ning should begin to take this 
inconvenient fact into ac- 
count? 

The awkward truth, how- 
ever, is that the alliance will 
not move unless it is pushed. If 
Mr Younger finds he has to 
start carving thicker slices off 
the salami, he should consider 
giving Brussels a shove in the 
right direction.

ran a 

topic of schizophrenia. Under 
the general title of “The 
Forgotten Illness” they set out 
to .remove the many mis- 
conceptions about the disease; 
to describe its ^cale and, tragic 
effects, and to expose the 
anguish . and neglect which 
both sufferers and their fam- 
ilies have experienced largely 
because of ignorance about it 
There was an extraordinary 
response to the articles in the- 
form of letters to The Times, 
and the Series’ author* Miss 
Maijorie Wallace, was named 
H Campaigning Journalist of the 
Year in. the British Press 
Awards. Their most recent 
(and most important) effect 
however, was the announce- 
ment this week of a national 
schizophrenia appeal to be 
launched in March 1 987. 

There are a number of 
reasons why an appeal is 
needed. The first is that the 
effect of newspaper articles, 
however compelling, is in- 
evitably transient Without the 
more, insistent pressure of an 
organised charity, people tend 
to forget both the scientific 
facts of the disease and the 
gaps in public provision for 
which ignorance is partly 
responsible. . 

In the case of schizophrenia, 
of the Jekyll-and- 


• reasserts JtsriC In. fact,, the 
illness is a disorder of the 
brain, probably bio-chemical 
in origin, which distorts the 
. way a person thinks and views 
the world. It comes in cycles, 
but there is no way of knowing 
when, why or how the bouts of 
mental anguish' recur. A third, 
of people have one breakdown 
and recover completely. A 
third struggle between periods 
of madness and sanity. A final 
third never fully recover. They 
go on to lead wasted lives and 
their minds and personalities 
decay. 

In many cases the worst 
symptoms of the disease can 
be controlled by neuroleptic 
drugs such as laigactii But 
these have unpleasant side 
effects such as involuntary 
shaking — and more research 
would probably find more 
effective drugs and the right 
doses. New techniques such as 
scanners, which allow doctors 
to see for the first time how 
these drugs act on the brain, 
are available. But the money to 
buy and operate them is 
lacking. Schizophrenia has 
been an unfashionable illness, 
and research into its cause and 
cure underfunded. 

The problem has been made 
worse by well-meaning gov- 
ernment policy. Community 
care is a good idea, and 
nobody wants schizophrenics 




the myth 

Hyde "split personality” soon 

an invisible guest 

been almost exclusively to 
Britain’s advantage. Mr 
Murakhovsky’s visit — timed 
to coincide with the Royal 
Agricultural Show, which ; is 
regularly visited by Soviet 
delegations — is nothing to be 
hidden. Indeed, it is a tribute 
to Britain's international 
reputation for advanced agri- 
cultural management 


locked away in the old asy- 
lums, but by running down the 
hospitals before the planned 
network of hostels, workshops 
and day-centres are built, we 
have created a new population 
of destitute, homeless people 
who are abandoned without 
treatment and end up in poor 
lodgings, in prison or under 
the arches. It is estimated that 
60 per cent of the homeless are 
discharged mental patients, 
mostly schizophrenic. More 
than anyone, they need shel- 
tered employment. 

Existing charities, however, 
are mainly self-help groups 
with small resources and little 
outside support. The new ap- 
peal — Schizophrenia: A Na- 
tional Emergency — is more 
ambitious. It aims to raise 
money for research into the 
cause, treatment and eventual 
cure of schizophrenia, and to 
put pressure on government 
and local authorities to stop 
the dumping of patients into 
poor lodgings or even onto the 
street. It also hopes to establish 
after-care schemes. 

There is no more important 
duty upon a civilised commu- 
nity than its care of the 
mentally ill for they cannot 
help themselves. With the 
public interest aroused by 
Miss Wallace’s articles and the 
establishment of the SANE 
appeal, that duty may begin to 
be met. 


Britain is currently playing 
host to one of the most 
important men in the Soviet 
Union. He is Vsevolod 
Murakbovsky, chairman ot 
the USSR's state agro-indus- 
trial committee, who is m 
chatge of plans to revitalize 
Soviet agriculture. His visit 
could offer a wealth ot 
opportunities to Brnisn 
exporters, yet it is passing 
unpublicized and almost un- 
noticed.

The level of contamination 
was relatively low, but the

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 



Equal control of mental patients 


From Professor John Gunn 
Sir, I understand that there is a 
joint Home Office/DHSS working 
party reviewing the current 
arrangements and law in relation 
to patients detained under the 
Mental Health Act (1983) in the 
category of psychopathic disorder. 
It seems that there may be 
proposals to deal with these 
patients (the psychopathically dis- 
ordered) quite differently from 
other types of patients. 

I understand how such sugges- 
tions arise as there is disquiet that, 
.on the one hand, psychopaths are 
detained in hospital simply in 
order to provide a form of 
protective custody and, on the 
other hand, that dangerous 
psychopaths are released too 
quickly and would be better 
controlled by the prison system. 

Personally, 1 hope that no such 
inividious and scientifically un- 
sound discrimination between dif- 
ferent types of mentally abnormal 
patients is made. I think the 
problem arises because the current 
Mental Health Act gives the 
medical profession insufficient 
powers for care and control in the 
community and so, in order to 
plug the gap, restriction orders, 
which are a mixture of penal 
sanctions and medical care, are 
used inappropriately. 

Under the Act a patient can only 
be compulsorily cared for in fee 
community for up to six months 
unless he has committed a signifi- 
cant offence and a court believes 
that the public need protection 
from him. In such a case the first 
thing that happens is that a 
restriction order, transferring the 
authority for discharge from the 
doctor to the Home Secretary or a 
special mental health review tri- 
bunal is made. 

These days, following practice 
directions, these restriction orders 
are almost invariably “without 
limit of time”, i.e^ of indefinite 
length, and equivalent to life 
imprisonment served in a hos- 
pital Sucb an order has the 
important advantage that when 
die patient is released from hos- 


pital compulsory treatment can be 
continued in the community, 
indefinitely if necessary. 

This is satisfactory for those 
patients who have committed an 
offence serious enough to attract a 
life sentence. For others a new 
community care order is urgently 
needed. Dr John Hamilton made a 
helpful proposal to this effect in 
this newspaper earlier this year 
(February 22). 

Within the Act it is. already 
possible for a court to fix the 
length of a restriction order at the 
time of sentencing, In practice, 
this option is rarely used, but with 
a community care order in exis- 
tence this could be done with 
confidence. 

The judge would decide at the 
time of sentencing how long the 
penal restrictions should last; this 
could be anything from, say, three 
or four years in a case of arson to 
life in a case of homicide. The 
judge would have complete dis- 
cretion, although he would need to 
take into account case law, and the 
sentence would be subject to 
appeal. 

At the end of the restricted 
period the patient would revert to 
civil status and further treatment 
would be organised and controlled 
in the ordinary way, with the 
additional safeguard of commu- 
nity care and controL The civil 
methods of control would be at the 
behest of the doctor, but reviewed 
by the mental health review 
tribunal 

This arrangement would thus 
give full responsibility for the 
penal element in the disposal of 
mentally abnormal offenders to 
the sentencing judge. It would 
prevent spurious distinctions be- 
tween categories of patients. It 
would make a contribution to 
improving public confidence in 
our methods of managing pa- 
tients.

Ordination of women 

From the Reverend M. H. Bryant 
Sir, Fr Francis Edwards (June 27) 
certainly writes in an over- 
simplistic way about corporate 
union of Angfo-Catholics wife fee 
see of Rome. Skills far more subtle 
and diplomatic than he envisages 
would be required. 

While it is true that many 
Anglo-Gatholics have advocated 
corporate union, there are just as 
many who have shunned! the idea. 
Many Anglicans cling to the belief 
that the Church of England is 
“more” catholic than the Church 
of Rome, and there are Anglo- 
Catholics among them. Moreover, 
there are Anglo-Catholics who 
favour the ordination of women as 
strongly as others oppose it. U is 
simply not possible to assume that 
all who claim to be Anglo- 
Catholics are agreed about fun- 
damentals. 

Nor is it possible to assume that 
the catholicising movement has 
completed its task of leavening the 
whole lump of the Church of 
England. While it would be foolish 
to expert anythingto be true of the 
whole Church of England, it must 
be recognised that catholicising 
influences are continuing to con- 
quer rationalism and liberalism, 
and that in itself is surely a 


significant contribution to re- 
establishing catholic truth. 

If large numbers of Anglo- 
Catholics secede from the Church 
of England this work would cease: 
it would not be furthered by ex- 
Anglican Roman Catholics. 

Some years ago. in desperation, 
I made the Romeward journey, 
only to find feat division of 
opinion was just as common 
amongst Roman Catholics as it is 
amongst Anglicans. As a convert, I 
was expected to side only with the 
orthodox and official views. If 
Anglo-Catholics as a body were to 
seek unity wife Rome, they would 
warn and rightly, fee same privi- 
leges as life-long Roman Catho- 
lics, inducting safe passage to 
maintain divergences which are 
not inconsistent wife Catholicism. 
I suspect that such privileges 
would not be forthcoming. 

Fr Edwards must for the time 
being content himself wife the 
invisible unity of the catholic 
faith, which I. for one, believe to 
bind us together, although I 
returned to the Church of my 
birth.

Engineers’ shortage 

From Professor L J. Herbst 
Sir, The shortage of engineering 
graduates, which is especially 
acute in the growth areas of 
electronic and computer engineer- 
ing, continues to receive much 
attention. One of fee main reasons 
for the shortfall is the insufficient 
number of fee 18+ cohort possess- 
ing A levels in mathematics and 
physics. 

This shortage could be consid- 
erably alleviated by introducing a 
specialone-year course for holders 
of O levels in mathematics and 
physics (or general science). There 
is mounting evidence that many 
18+ school leavers who wish to 
study for an engineering degree 
lack fee required entry qualifica- 
tions. 

Such courses, which would be 
located mainly, if not entirely, in 
colleges of further and higher 


education and which would attract 
a mandatory support grant, will 
bring students up to fee required 
standard in mathematics and 
physics (or engineering science). 
The terminal examination would 
be either for GCE A levels, or 
possibly for internally awarded 
certification acceptable for entry 
to CNAA and university engineer- 
ing degrees. 

The- proposal I have outlined 
could well lead to a substantial 
increase in the number of en- 
gineering graduates, an increase 
badly needed if we are to hold our 
own in fee years which lie ahead

Pulling together 

From Mr Charles Redstone 
Sir, Ian Weston Smith has rightly 
pointed out (June 30) fee advan- 
tage to be gained by a revival of 
enterprise investment in the 
North. 

It cannot, however, solve our 
basic problem, which is feat our 
goods and services are in- 
sufficiently competitive to enable 
us to earn the 5 per cent annual in- 
crease in GDP which could elimi- 
nate mass unemployment . and 
maintain satisfactory public ser- 
vices. substantially reducing fee 
strain in inner cities. 

Groups united by a common 


cause and folly informed will 
cooperate much more successfully 
than ill-informed groups, divided 
by ignorance, suspicion and mis- 
conception. 

The nation needs telling how 
and why any action which affects 
fee sales of our goods and services 
will equally affect the availability 
of goods and services to the 
nation. 

We need fee kind of unity which 
we display in moments of crisis, 
particularly in time of war. 

Yours sincerely, 

C. REDSTONE,

Honouring debt 
to a generation 

From the Reverend Prebendary 
Michael Saward 

Sir. Today sees fee 70fe anniver- 
sary of the opening of fee Battle of 
fee Somme when, on feat day 
alone. British casualties amounted 
to almost 60.000 killed and 
wounded. You and other organs of 
the media have already recorded 
this fact. By now there are, 
presumably, very few living survi-. 
von of feat day. 

Ten years ago, on fee 60th 
anniversary, I stood quite alone 
on the edge of the mine crater at 
La Boissetle. close to fee tine of the 
old Roman road which formed fee 
central axis of the battle. At 7.30 
am. the exact moment at whirfr 
the infantry baule had - com- 
menced 1 was able to envisage: 
something of what had been 
happening there. Having read 
many detailed accounts, I let my 
imagination play on the lines of 
Tyneside Irish who had come over 
the hill in front of me and been 
massacred as they advanced It 
was a deeply moving experience. 

During the two days 1 spent 
walking over fee battlefield I 
found an intact shell and much 
corroded shrapnel still in exis- 
tence. Scenes of heroism and 
slaughter were still recognisable to 
a knowledgeable observer. Grave- 
yards were still beautifully main- 
tained. 

Why did I. a clergyman then 44, 
whose family had been untouched 
by fee battle: bother to go and 
spend those days on the Somme 
and those especially precious few 
minutesby that still-existing mine 
crater? 

I can only say feat, having read 
so much, initially quite by ac- 
cident. I felt that someone of my 
generation should honour the 
memory of what took place feat 
day on fear spot I am neither a 
warmonger nor a pacifist and I 
hope, had I been alive m August 
1914, feat I would have spoken 
out against such a totally un- 
necessary war. Nevertheless, our 
county's debt to that generation 
remains. .

Cricket decline 

From Mr Charles Woodhouse 
Sir, David Green writes (June 24) 
of the “decline of state school 
cricket" His evidence seems lim- 
ited to recent unhappy experiences . 
in what was Middlesex: 

Let him come to Surrey and 
look at what is now happening at 
some of fee clubs. There are many 
examples where the dubs are 
taking over from the schools, and 
not just the State schools. 

The result is a new generation of 
excellent young cricketers whose 
cricket is being developed, by the 
thriving colts sections of the clubs. 

A partnership has been developing 
between Surrey County Cricket 
Cub, under Micky Stewart, and 
the dubs in fee development of 
junior cricket. 

Let him come to Guildford 
Cricket Cub in particular. This 
spring Guildford won at Lord’s 
fee National Cricket Assodation 
indoor knock-out cup (from a 
national entry of over 2,000 clubs) 
wife a side wife an average age of 
19, all of whom had come from 
State schools and had been with 
the Guildford dub for several 
years. Two of that side, Martin 
Bicknell and Gary Winterbourne, 
have in fee past fortnight made 
their first-class debuts for Surrey. 

AH is not perfect, but fee 
position is not as universally 
gloomy as Mr Green suggests.

In the driving cab 

From Ms Lesley Holland 
Sir, Your editorial of June 26 
referred to the single fully-quali- 
fied train driver on British Rail’s 
books as being a man who had 
changed sex. 

May I point out feat there are 
currently four fully-qualified 
woman train drivers, seven 
drivers’ assistants, a traction ■ 
trainee and 82 guards. 

For fee record, the “sex change" 
driver left British Rail's service 
some years ago.

College comparisons 

From Professor Nicholas Hast 
Sir, As an ex-British academic, 
now employed fee USA I beg 
your indulgence for a few reflec- 
tions upon fee present state of 
higher education in fee United 
Kingdom. 

British universities, according 
to the Government, are in- 
efficient; hence fee campaign to 
pare the fai As evidence, tta small 
student-to-staff ratio is commonly 
quoied. It is true feat in fee USA 
this ratio is higher, but there an 
average American student takes 
4.5 years to obtain a baccalaureate 
degree, while in Britain this is 
done in 3-2 years. - 
One significant outcome of the 
Government’s parsimony is the 
abysmally low level, of salaries 


offered to academics. It is absurd 
when, as for instance in Durham, 
a senior worid-renowned profes- 
sor gets a salary less than an 
average accountant in a middle- 
size business firm. 

Another criticism levelled 
against fee universities has been 
that their running operations are 
inefficient. I left this country for 
Canada in 1971. to find that feere, 
wife a much larger administrative 
personnel, administrative short- 
comings in universities are worse. 
In fee USA, the administrative, 
efficiency, is maintained through 
fee employment of vast admin- 
istrative staffs. 

In many American universities 
the ratio of administrative to 
academic staffs is of fee order of 
3:1. The quaint notion that 
university administration, in Brit- 


ain, can be improved by the 
establishment of pyramidal struc- 
tures of command, to say fee least, 
is counter-productive. 

Lastly, fee University Grants 
Committee's recent evaluation of 
university departments is particu- 
larly suspect For insiance, re- 
search in the Department of 
Geological Sciences in Durham 
has been assessed by the UGC as 
average. Internationally the 
department is one of fee best 
known. Thus its research impact is 
high and much higher than of fee 
many departments put forward as 
above average. 

Yours sincerely.

JULY 2 1889 

Henley Regatta had already been 
in existence for 30 years, but the 
problem of congestion was 
comparatively recent, brought on 
by Us rapid growth in popularity 
to a wider public. The appeal in 
the letter from the stewards 
appears from later accounts to 
have, had some effect, although a 
competitor in one of the sculling 
races collided with a punt that 
protruded too far into the course. 


HENLEY ROYAL REGATTA 

The champion oarsmen's meet- 
ing of the year will be held at 
Henley-on-Thames on the 
Wednesday. Thursday, and Friday 
of the present week. Although the 
entries are not quite so numerous 
as on some previous occasions, 
there are quite sufficient to pro- 
duce three days’ good sport; but 
unfortunately fee general public, 
who have taken Henley Regatta 
under their especial patronage, 
care little or nothing for rowing. 
This is very much to be regretted, 
because the Universities, public 
schools, and metropolitan boat 
dubs, which are mainly instrumen- 
tal in' keeping oarsmanship at a 
high standard, and which spend 
much time and considerable sums 
of money in perfecting their crews, 
are frequently condemned to see all 
the trouble and anxiety of many 
weeks, if hot months, thrown away 
by the wanton behaviour of an 
obstructive row-boat, which is 
allowed to wander about all over 
the racecourse at its own will and 
pleasure, its occupants as heedless 
of the rijj£its of the competitors as 
they are, ignorant of the most 
elementary principles of naviga- 
tion. This evil which is the 
besetting sin of the regatta, is of 
comparatively modern growth, for 
within the memory of many of the 
boating men now at Henley house- 
boats and steam launches were 
unknown. Now the trained crews 
are driven out of their course, 
obstructed, run into, and some- 
times upset No later than last year 
the Thames Rowing Club crew in 
the moment of success for the 
Grand Challenge Cup - the prime 
trophy of the regatta - were run 
into and one of their outriggers vraa 
smashed a few yards short of the 
winning-post by a lubberly plea- 
sure-brat: but they were so close 
home that their immediate pursu- 
ers, although enabled to overlap 
than as they passed the judge, were 
not able to deprive them of their 
hardly-earned victory. This kind of 
thing' should not be allowed, and in 
□o other country but our own 
would such an abuse for one 
moment be tolerated. 

. . . The valley of the Thames 
looks beautiful in the wealth of 
foliage surrounding it; there are a 
very large number of house-boats 
and. steam launches already in 
position on the off side of the 
course. The racing course has been 
marked off by a line of piling on 
either side, as last year. A grand 
stand is in process of being put up 
in the meadows just below the 
winning post. 

TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES 

Sir, - Will you kindly allow us 
space in your "paper to draw the 
attention of all those who may 
contemplate being present at the 
forthcoming regatta at Henley to a 
portion of the annual report of the 
committee of management, pre- 
sented to the stewards in Novem 
ber last? The committee say> 

“The course has been narrowed 
year by year so as to give more 
space for the pleasure craft, and the 
number of guard boats has been 
increased, but it is hopeless to rely 
on these means to keep a clear 
course without the assistance of! 
the spectators. The committee 
appeal to those who may be in 
charge of pleasure boats in future 
to assist the executive in keeping 
the course entirely clear from the 
time each race starts until the 
racing boats have passed. 

“The -committee observed with 
regret that, in spite of the notices 
affixed to each pile, boats lay 
during the races, in some cases 
three or four deep, against the 
inside, instead of on the outside, of] 
the piles, and in other instances 
were moored projecting on to the 
course.” 

We would wish to point out that 
the very existence of the regatta 
depends upon the preservation of a 
clear course for the competition • 
that unlike a racecourse upon the 
land, the river is incapable of, 
expansion, and the difficulty of 
accommodating the ever-increas- 
ing number of spectators is much 
intensified unless the committee 
can count upon the cordial co- 
operation of all those who are 
afloat upon the river — 

... We appeal, therefore, with 
confidence, to all who may be 
spectators to co-operate with the 
executive committee in keeping fee 
course entirely clear during the 
races, and with that object in viewj 
to retire at once behind the lines of! 
the piles as soon as the bell is rung 
to dear the course. 

Yours faithfully,

was “harmony*’. 

“We religious Catholics", 
he said, “desire to respect the 
convictions of those who pro- 
fess another world outlook, 
but we also expect them to 
respect ours". 

He was one who reduced 
outward ceremonial to a mini- 
mum. He was also a pragma- 
tist and the first to admit that 
many of his priests had little 


regime. 

He carried about him ah air 
of gentleness that only partly 
concealed a greater impres- 
sion of strength. He -deliber- 
ately abjured heroics and, 
while, finding Beckel 
“glorious", would, in the end, 
have felt such a martyrdom a 
vain glory in modern, com- 
munist Hungary.

1917, 

With the birth of an inde- 
pendent Poland after the First 
World War, he joined the new 
Polish Air Force and was the 
first pilot to pass out of the 
national flying school in 1919. 

He was soon involved in 
active operations. The desire 
of the emergent state to assert 
itself against its Bolshevik 
neighbour and ancient enemy, 
led to the disastrous invasion 


Warsaw, Makowski played an 
important role, on one otca^ .

I read with interest the 
obituary on Dr R. L 
Waterfield {June 25). He was, 
of course, an eminent astrono-

given due emphasis. His con-

haematology should not how-

He was an excellent diag-

measurement of mean cell - 
diameter and. later, a machine ■ 
capable of measuring the aver- 
age volumes and shapes of red 
blood cells - the Waterfield 
Spherocytometer. 

This work, which provided 
insight into the significance of 
accurately measured red cell 
changes, preceded the. devel-

methodology which con-

- I shone like a pearl in the 
! - present cowpat of television 
- 1 scheduling. Investigating the 

processes of law by which four 
suspected IRA terrorists were 
given life sentences. Grant 
McKee's superlative pro- 
gramme left the viewer without 
an inkling of donbt that the 

* wrong people had been con- 
. .. victed. I only hope that per- 

sons powerful enough to 
pervert the course of this 
justice were not last night on 
holiday. 

The first half presented the 
familiar facts. On October 5, 
1 ; 1974. a couple entered the 
Horse and Groom in Guildford 
where off-duty soldiers sat 
; drinking. In between their 
_ kisses and their cuddles, this 
couple placed a gelignite time- 
bomb which later exploded, 
killing five people. Half an 
. - hour later, at another Guild- 

- .ford pub. a second bomb 

- exploded. Eight weeks later 

- police arrested three Belfast 
. Catholics and a girl. All four 

- confessed, implicated, each 
other and were duly found 

■ . guilty. The case was sewn up. 

The- programme's second 
half removed its thread in a 

- , way Ludovic Kennedy might 
. • be proud of. In a clear and 

- confident reconstruction of 
events — which included inter- 
views with key witnessess — 

u McKee fleshed out the doubts 
already apparent in the minds 
..of men like Meriyn Rees and 
Lord Fitt. Doubts about Car- 
ole Richardson, for instance, 

■ who. 15 days after the bomb- 
ing, actually turned up at a 
police station to complain that 
she had been assaulted by a 
drunk. Miss Richardson, who 

- was not picked out in eight 
identity parades, had one alibi 
in Liz As tin — a friend whom 
she accompanied on the night 
of the bombing to a rock 
concert — and another in a 
trainee teacher who spent 20 
minutes drinking with her 

. beforehand. When this man 
| went to the police, he too was 
arrested. After three days of 
interrogation, he retracted his 
statement. 

. Two of those charged were 
on drugs when taken into 
cnstody and made their confes- 
sions daring amphetamene 
withdrawal before seeing a 
. 'solicitor. Between the four 
confessions there were 100 
. discrepancies. Miss Rkhard- 

• son even admitted, impossibly, 

. to both bombings. "Deliberate 

disinformation'', said the At- 
torney-General. 

However, when the Bal- 

■ combe Street gang were arrest- 
■ ed later that year, they dourly 

claimed responsibility. While 
convincing the police officer 
(now retired) who took their 
statements, their evidence 
made little impression on the 
Court of Appeal w ho were left 
with "no lurking doubt**. 

As Carole's friend Liz says, 
"I know it's wrong and I carry 
it around with me the whole 
time**. So should we. Unfortu- 
nately. the Surrey police were 
not prepared to allow First 
Tuesday to interview those 
.officers concerned — namely 
Wally Simmons and Christo- 
pher Rowe. In their glaring 
absence, we were left with the 
dangerous belief that the real 
-.culprits were not the Gnildford 
Four but our own adversarial 
system which, combined with 
the emotional climate of the 
time, has made a complete 
pig's breakfast of tbe truth.

Paul Griffiths reviews Jonathan Miller’s long-awaited 
production of Tosca at Florence’s Maggio Musicale 
and Hilary Finch reports on the comings and goings 
of the annual ‘Schubertiade’ at Hohenems 

Puccini dragged out of 
his natural element 


CflvaBvda 


Jonathan Miller’s fascist twisting of 
Tosca had received so much ad- 
vance publicity that it could hardly 
be a surprise: the actual perfor- 
mances — which have now ended, 
at the Teatro Com unale in Flor- 
ence. until this production is 
revived at the Coliseum next 
season — became rather the test of 
an idea. Of course, this is nothing 
new in Dr Miller's theatrical 
activity, but it does make for a 
distanced view of the work, and 
perhaps the root problem with this 
latest venture is that Puccini's raw 
melodrama does not take too well 
to inverted commas. 

If the transfer to 1443 could be 
complete, then all might be well 
But it is not. The curtain opens on a 
baroque church interior, which 
admittedly is tilted fifteen degrees 
to the right, but which could serve 
for a straight production of the 
work. Then there is the problem of 
the sacristan, who cannot be made 
to look so very different from a 
sacristan of 1800. Very soon the 
production is beginning to look like 
an experiment: not a lively, witty 
re-creation as Dr Miller’s Little 


Italy Rigoleito was. but an interpre- 
tation that draws attention to itself 
as a game. It just slides away from 
connection with the score: these 
people do not belong with this 
music. 

The entry of Scarpia. for in- 
stance. one of the dead certs of 
opera, goes for little when the 
tyrant is not stiffly uniformed but 
dressed in nondescript grey. And at 
the end of this first act there is no 
ecclesiastical pomp, only a group of 
choristers and people walking 
away. One feels oneself to be 
watching a shadow-play while the 
real opera goes on in the pit — or at 
least that was the impression in 
Florence, where Zubin Mehta con- 
ducted a highly dramatic but also 
sensitive and cosseting (as far as 
the Maggio Musicale orchestra was 
able to cosset) account of the score. 

The second act has the same 
heavy, grey baroque interior in- 
deed this element of Stefan os 
Lazaridis's design is clearly perma- 
nent. and lends a nice irony to 
Scarpia's lines about naughtiness 
in church. It also works well 
enough for his office, with a map of 


Rome spread across the rear wall 
and the chapel of safely now 
become a torture-chamber. But 
there are no candles for Tosca to 
place beside the body, instead, in a 
gesture that is at once empty, 
stupid and ludicrous, she overturns 
the contents of a document file on 
the late gent. 

The greatest absurdities come, 
however, in the last act. We are still 
in church, which produces a glori- 
ous contradiction with the tinkling 
animal bells heard from the orches- 
tra. It is hard to be too amused, 
though, when the stage is alive with 
a huge question: how is she going to 
make the leap? Dr Miller's solution 
to his self-imposed question is 
gloriously silly. He has already 
suggested that Tosca is seeking an 
escape from the set (as well she 
might be) by having her lead 
Cavaradossi off the downstage 
edge for their third-act duet Then 
she makes her suicide by diving 
straight through the scenery, rip- 
ping a hole in one of the blind 
arches at the back. 

Try as one may, it is hard to take 



Lending a nice Irony to Scarpia's lines a bo at naughtiness in church, bat still in open conflict with 
Puccini's work itself: Stefanos Lazaridis’s heavy, \ 


} grey baroque set on the tilt 


this seriously, and I cannot think 
that Dr Miller is seriously con? 
cemed with the opera. Apart from 
the updating, his only interferences 
with conventional practice are 
negative: there is no ceremonial, no 
colour (apart from Tosca 's gown in 
the second act. the costumes range 
from dun to dull blue) and no 
painting. Perhaps that is just as 
well, for an exhibiton currently on 
show at the Pitti, devoted to- 
treatments of the Magdalen theme, 
evokes the horrible suggestion that 
this Cavaradossi's canvas might 
have been something like De 
Chirico's daub rather than a decent 
bit of romantic ecstasy. 


The only character to gain from . 
the new situation is Spoletta, who 
is well played by Romano Emili as 
a yes-man -enjoying every minute, 
of the general abasement. 

Scarpia might possibly also be 
made to live more vigorously in . 
Nazi Rome. Silvano Carrol i has 
the right mien and the. right 
inflexible facial muscles, but. .he 
was prone to lapses of memory at 
the performance 1 saw, and was 
•content too often with a thrown- 
away Sprechgesang curiously sug- 
gestive of Wozzeck. 

The title role was shared between 
Eva Marion and' Marilyn Zschatr. 
Miss Manon was in full, rich and 


-well modulated voice to judge from 
what I could hear of her in the vast 
barn of the Palazzo dello Sport in a 
performance of Schoenberg's 
■Gurrdieder also conducted by 
Mehta: Miss Zschau was troubled 
-by Vibrato and a sense of- strain, 
though she acted, vitally, and. threw 
. herself through the papa* at the end 
.with . great ... aplomb. Giuseppe 
Giacomini gave a fine performance 
as Cavardossi, strong and - confi- 
dent, with a rounded yet ardent 
tone that began to give way,- sadly, 
in "E luce van le sidle**. But then 
that was another point where, the 
set was In open conflict with the 
work — P.& 


Unique quality threatened by success 


Peter Schreier returned to the 
stage of the Stadihalle. Feld- 
kirch. for his seventh standing 
ovation. More of that later. 
The applause is the same, of 
course, even when a group like 
the Emerson String Quartet 
from the USA rampages its 
way insensitively through 
Schubert's D887 and D956. It 
is partly because it is Austria; 
partly perhaps because, at 
anything from £25 to £60 a 
ticket, the audience is pretty 
determined to enjoy itself, and 
largely, I suspect because so 
many visitors really are hav- 
ing the time of their lives. 

The 12 days of the annual 
Schubertiade at Hohenems 
can easily turn into an action 
replay of some of the more 
idyllic aspects of the com- 
poser's Lieder. In the alpine 
foothills and wide valleys of 
the Vorarlberg in the western 
corner of Austria, time be- 
tween concerts can be spent 
wandering "durch Feld und 
Wald,” tuning in to water- 
mills and nightingales, fishing 
in lake or stream, or taking a 
Bodensee Rundfahrt "auf dem 
Wasser zu singen". ft is just 
the sort of stun to attract the 
British who. with the lai^e 
percentage of American visi- 
tors. are increasing in their 
numbers each year Most of 
them arrive neatly packaged 
and, well cosseted at Bregenz's 
Hotel Schwarzler. are bundled 
into buses for Hohenems. 
clutching their silk-sewn pro- 
gramme books for all the 
world like ardent believers off 
to a Bible study. 

Chamber concerts and pi- 
ano recitals are held in the 
wood-panelled, tapestried Rit- 
tersaal of Hohenems's sturdy 
Renaissance Palace. Its ele- 
gant open-air counyard, the 
Palasthof. reverberates like a 
huge marble bathroom and. 
although twice the size, is used 
half as much. Even Edith 
Mathis. Julia Hamari. Kurt 
Azesberger and Peter Jelosits. 
who fought against excessive 
humidity for an afternoon of 
Schuben vocal quartets and 
trios, could not conquer an 
acoustic still more glaring 
than the sun's heat. 

This. then, is the setting by 
which the festival is marketed 
In reality, the centre is fast 
moving to nearby Feldkirch. a 



Peter Schreier: perfect Ideas perfectly realised 


far more attractive, medieval 
walled town, with a far less 
attractive 10-year-old concert- 
hall. The anisis and audiences 
enjoy its acoustic and its chic 
open-air cate: the organizers 
like its capacity - nearly three 
times that of the Rittersaal. 
After a recital like Schreier's 
Die schone Muller in, nobody 
minds much about architect- 
urally-induced atmosphere. 

Schreier had chosen to per- 
form a version annotated by 
Schubert's great singer-friend. 
Johann Michael Vogl: it was 
the perfect festival idea, per- 
fectly realized. Vogl's sparing 
alterations are in the nature of 
affectionate, improvisatory re- 
sponses: tiny grace notes, 
arpeggiated intervals, little 
decorative turns and pauses 
which, in hands other than 
Schreier's. could well sound 
like affection or irrelevance. 
Schreier. though, as anyone 
familiar with his recently re- 
corded Wiruerreise might ex- 
pect. used them subtly to 
intensify and inflect his con- 
ception of the cycle as an 
elevated poetry reading. 

His hand-gestures are those 
of a speaker, not of a singer, 
his light tenor draws the 
listener in with an intimacy 
and concentration of response 
given still sharper focus by 
Vogl's ornaments. 1 found the 


performance revelatory, from 
the vocal silence in the repeat- 
ed "das WandenT at the start 
through to the triplet-caressed 
final "Bachlein" of "Der Mull- 
er und der Bach". In between, 
both Vogl and Schreier eased 
tire cycle’s drift in and out of 
action and contemplation 
with scattered arpeggios of 
delight and impetus in 
"Mein!*' and with hushed 
passing notes in “Der Neu- 
gierige". while Norman 
Sheiler. accompanying, mi- 
nutely controlled the cycle's 
undercurrent 

Janet Baker, two days be- 
fore. had packed the Stadi- 
halle for a morning recital of 
gently visionary, meditative 
Schuben. In songs like 
"Sehnsucht" and "Die junj 
Nonne". and in her Lit 
cincs fahrenden Gesellen, she 
was slow to warm up. a little 
contrived in her responses, 
and had Geoffrey Parsons at 
his most soporifically support- 
ive. Schumann's Frauenliebe 
und Leben . though, ap- 
proached a warmer mid-day. 
with the dull ache of its final 
song containing, it seemed, 
(he cycle's entire emotional 
span. 

Christa Ludwig, too. chose a 
programme of Schubert 
heavyweights, which flanked 
nine songs by Wolf and four 
by Liszt. For the English 


visitor, it was a rare chance to 
hear a rare artist. Her virile 
enjoyment of the German 
language, with her dark, rich 
cantabile. unafraid of tempi 
and ponamenii reminiscent of 
the Gerhardt generation, 
brought intensity and stature 
to "Im Abendrot” and 
"Wehmuf*. 

A more disturbing aspect of 
the move to Feldkirch is its 
effect on programming. Lurk- 
ing in the middle of next years 
prospectus is the announce- 
ment of a fully-staged pro- 
duction of La traviata. to be 
conducted by Martin Fischer- 
Dieskau and designed by his 
brother Mathias. Judging by 
this year’s trail-blazer, a con- 
cert performance of Fidelia , 
the overall artistic losses may 
well outweigh the financial 
gains of the operation. 

Nikolaus Harnoncourt was 
at the helm; and that was no 
small part of the. problem. 
Having resigned oneself to 
tempi, pacing and phrasing 
which did all too little for the 
score's musical stage-manage- 
ment, one then had to contend 
with a narration, written by 
Walter Jens (professor of clas- 
sical philology and rhetoric at 
Tubingen) and recited with 
Teutonic vehemence by Wolf- 
gang Reichmanm. 

if one is going to be alienat- 
ed by the performance style 
and format anyway, one might 
as well. I suppose, be alienated 
thoroughly. So the philoso- 
phizing of "Rocco's Tale", in 
tum oppressively romantic 
and wryly ironic, elbowed its 
way between fine perfor- 
mances by Peter Schreier 
(Florestan). Julia Varady 
(Leonore). Robert HoII (Don 
Fernando) and Kriszlina Laki 
(Marzelline) and the thrilling 
agony of Dietrich Fischer- 
Dieskau's Don Pizarro. 

The festival directors (for 
no one will take single respon- 
sibility’ for the decision) may 
well be heady, in this eleventh 
year, with the scent of box- 
office success at the Stadihalle. 
It remains to be seen, though, 
whether they will have the 
wisdom and courage to resist 
distorting the Schubert iade’s 
uniquely distinctive profile by 
inching it towards the multi- 
purpose international festival 
big-time. - H.F.

: Making Noise 
Quietly 
Bush 

Yorkshire has produced some 
remarkable playwrights over 
the past 20 years, but none 
■ more stubbornly independent 
than Robert Holman. From 
his plays - often set in 
desolate locations and featur- 
ing characters who quietly 
resist every dramatic expecta- 
tion — he seems temperamen- 
tally to belong to the world of 
provincial arts and crafts. One 
pictures Mr Holman in a 
lonely hill-top studio, coming 
across some oddly-shaped 
chunk of reality, like a twisted 
tree-stump, and getting it on 
his lathe. It would be useless to 
anybody else, but he can make 
something of it 

His latest production con- 
sists of three short plays 
(commissioned by the Bush) 
of which the title piece breaks 
‘ new ground. All three are set 
against a pastoral backdrop, 
evoked with scenery paintings 
of a high order in Kenny 
Miller's right-angle panels of 
woodland foliage and far-off 
hills. 

Here, in the first piece 
(Being Friends) two boys have 
a wartime picnic amid the 
sound of doodle-bugs and 


Kentish church-bells. They 
are total strangers. One is a 
pacifist farm worker, the oth- 
er. beautifully played by 
Ronan Vibert a tubercular 
artist with echoes of Denton 
Welch. He arrives on a bike, 
looking every inch a rector’s 
son in his Fair Isle sweater and 
owlish glasses, announcing "I 
do live recklessly" as he 
primly spreads a small table- 
cloth on the grass. This proves 
to be the truth once he 
launches into his homosexual 
autobiography and digs out 
the proofs of his first novel 
with introduction by Edith 
Sitwell. By the end. both boys 
are naked in the sun. 

Lost, the second play, 
moves north for an encounter 
between a mother (Jean Boht) 
and a naval officer who comes 
to break the news of her son's 
death in the Falklands. Again, 
awkward reality smashes 
through stereotype with the 
discovery that the dead man 
had despised his family and 
long since abandoned them. 

Both plays are built around 
interrogations, and seem to be 
making the point that total 
strangers often get to know 
each other better than people 
who are locked into an exist- 
ing relationship. The same 
pattern recurs in the title play, 
but transposed from Mr 
Holman's habitual phlegmatic 
manner to open passion. 



White-hot performances; Helen Ryan and Daniel Kipling in Making A fosse Quietly 


We are now in the Black 
Forest on the estate of a 
prosperous German business- 
woman who is entertaining a 
British soldier and small boy 
she has found wandering in 
the woods. The man. deserted 
by his wife and left to look 
after the child of her first 
marriage, is a character vio- 


lently at war with himself. 

Subject to ungovernable rages 
and self-faceraring remorse, he 
hands out parental beatings 
and apologies from which the 
boy has retreated into un- 
breakable silence. 

The task of the play is to 
persuade him to speak: and in 


doing so it touches on areas of 
anger and pain demolishing 
any idea of Mr Holman as a 
cold-blooded writer. In John 
Dove's prod union it gets 
white-hot performances from 
Helen Ryan. Paul Copley and 
Daniel Kipling. 

Irving Wardle 


James Wood 
Union Chapel 

There have been many an- 
cient Greeces in music 
Monteverdi’s. Gluck's, De- 
bussy's. Richard Strauss's, 
Xenakis's, Birtwistle's. James 
Wood's, on the evidence of his 
Choroi kai thaliai given on 
Monday by tbe Almeida Festi- 
val. is a contribution to this 
quickening rhythm, and not 
the least authentic as a 
restirring of the archetypes. 

What it provides is, to 
follow his own translation of 
his title, a sequence of "revels 
and dances" that make up a 
Dionysiac concert drama for 
solo percussionist (himself) 
with soprano (Sara Stowe) and 
men’s choir on tape. 

Much of the music is fast 
and furious, with an emphasis ’ 
on pounding drumbeats- to 
support the regular rhythmic 
chant of the invisible chorus — 
and their invisibility is impor- 
tant when it leaves the visual 
focus' 'solely on the athletic 
percussion player and his 
instruments: that is. much 
more a justification of the 
electronics than is an unhappy 
moment of chipmunk-style 
double speed. 

But the invisibility of the 
soprano is useful too. She 
appears on stage for the 
opening invocation, then goes 
off (on this occasion to a 
gallery) for the slow melodi- 
ous calling of a hymn to 
sleep, and finally she returns, 
after the most energetic batter- 
ing of the drums, for a highly 
ornate, rapid and breathless 


protest in ^favour of song. 

Miss Stowe, here proved 
herself as much a' virtuoso as 
Mr Wood, her voice rippling 
at once with fury and exhilara- 
tion, whereas in the slumber 
song it had been magically 
clear and captivating. Unless 
it was just her presence that 
made it seem so. the music 
sounded stronger in the sopra- 
no sections; elsewhere, the 
combination of incisive cho- 
rus and drums suggested. Orff 
and, curiously but still more 
powerfully, the “Dies irae" of 
Verdi's Requiem. 

- The other work on foe 
programme, concentrating 
just on soprano and more 
delicate,' mostly tuned percus- 
sion, therefore appeared the 
more perfect achievement 
Again the appeal is to -an 
ancient culture, but now Chi- 
nese HoshangYdo isasefting 
of pre-Con fucian poems in foe 
original, intoned by Miss 
Stowe in utterly convincing 
bdMike sounds that chimed 
with the glockenspieL marim- 
ba, and gongs of tbe accom- 
paniment . 

The music is based on a 
quarter-tone-flavoured penta- 
tonic scale that Mr Wood used 
in his String Quartet; but 
whereas in that work the effect 
was too much of mistiming, 
here tbe new scale, which 
keeps only seconds , and 
sevenths among familiar in- 
tervals. proved a totally suc- 
cessful means of achieving a 
genuinely new simplicity, a 
transparent clarity detached 
from any western tradition. 

Paul Griffiths 


Brendel, Holliger 
and friends 
Festival Hall 


Chamber music seldom ven- 
tures into the Festival Hall, for 
more reasons than the obvi- 
ous economic ones. Its essence 
is intimacy and close rapport; 
if you cannot play it the next 
best thing is to be close enough 
to savour every innuendo in 
the musical conversation. Bui 
eavesdropping is difficult 
from 40 yards away, especially 
when digital watches an- 
nounce the arrival of nine 
o'clock in two different keys, 
neither of them tonally related 
to Beethoven’s. 

With an assembly of talent 
like this, however, being one 
of 2.000 flies on the wall 
becomes a worthwhile occu- 
pation. The qualities of the 
pianist Alfred Brendel. the 
oboist Heinz Holliger and the 
horn-player Hermann Bau- 
mann are sufficiently appreci- 
ated already. Less familiar 
figures, perhaps, are the clari- 
nettist Eduard Brunner, whose 
conspicuously modulated tim- 
bre matched up to Holliger 
well, and the bassoonist Klaus 
Th uneman n. He revealed 
both his velvety tone and his 
prodigious lung capacity in 
the slow movement of Beet- 
hoven's E flat Quintet. Op 16. 

Beethoven's lyrical Andan- 
te. of course, gives a peach ofa 
solo to each instrument in 
turn: these performers seized 
on them with relish. In a jazz 
gig such playing would nave 
had us cheering every 32 bars. 
Baumann impressed especial- 
ly. He must have the safest 
pair of lips in the business, but 
he never forgets he is a 
musician, and his phrasing is 
as subtle as any violinist's. 

What impressed even more 
than the solo prowess, though, 
was the communal sense of 
purpose displayed. If their 
Beethoven had its grand, rhe- 
torical moments, the perfor- 
mance of Mozart's E flat 
Quintet K452. showed morel 


miniaturist skills. The Larg- 
hetto's trills were coordinated 
perfectly and some of the 
dynamic-shading was remark- 
able. particularly the diminu- 
endos • lavished on first- 
movement cadences. 

Brendel. content to scale bis 
pianism to his colleagues' 
needs in the quintets,, offered 
his ever-changing interpreta- 
tion of Schubert's Moments 
musicaux in between. He 
seems to be more generous 
with rubato these days, but it 
is still his ability to whittle 
away Schubert’s thick bass 
chords and expose middle- 
register detail that sets bis 
reading apart.

The English Cat. 
Radio 3, tonight 

Tonight's broadcast of Hans 
Werner Henze's most recent

~new- BBC recording, is one of 
many British events marking 
the composer's sixtieth birth- 
day yesterday. Premiered r in 
1983. foe opera is.quite unhke 
anything else by Heme; a 
satirical operetta, tonal and 
tunefol. 

;■ For his librettist - Henze 
turned to Edward Bond. Their 
intent - mocking bourgeois 
val ties —is no less serious than 
in their vast, polemical ‘1976 
opera Wt Come to the River. 
but here their method. is to 
entertain while they educate. 
Although the story (from Bal- 
zac) isfsabout animals, the 
caricatures . are recognizably 

human, v/ " ■ 

-In Viaorian London the 
• confirmed bachelor cauL-Lord 
Puff, president of a’ - charity 
that protects rats, is abour to 
marry the naive .country cat 
Minette. She and her sisterare 
amazed by the sophistication 
of London cat .society, in 
■which rats are pampered, nor 
hunted, because “food de- 
scends’ from heaven oh; a 
plate"

her to play the cello instead). 
Minette tells, for a tomcat

Her adultery is discovered by 
Puffs nephew, who wants 
Puffs fortune for himself. and 
Minette is drowned in the 
Thames. Tom. however, is 
exonerated because 'he is im- 
mensely rich. Deprived of 
Minette he pragmatically se- 
duces her sister, but he too 
ends up dead — killed by Lord 
Puffs charity workers who 
need his money to further 
their missions of mercy. 

ft is black enough comedy, 
but Bond's handling of it "is 
light, even Gilbeftian.- and on 
this excellent studio recording 
(conducted, by Richard Arm- 
strong) the cast ensures that 
the sardonic tone comes over. 
The BBG Symphony Orches- 
tra brings out the orch- 
estration's glittering quality, a 
major factor in making this 
score so approachable. This 
broadcast should win Henze 
hew friends.

Trade 

talks 

truce 

agreed 

From Bailey Morris 
. Annapolis 

The United States and the 
EEC extended a crilicaJ July 1 
deadline yesterday to continue 
marathon negotiations aimed 
at resolving a Si billion trade 
dispute over the accessions of 
Spain and Portugal. 

A temporary truce was ne- 
gotiated to allow Mr Clayton 
Yeulier, the US trade repre- 
sentative, and Mr Willy de 
Clercq. the EEC Commission- 
er for External Relations, to 
continue talks on an overnight 
flight from Washington to 
Paris. 

Mr Yeutter said the negotia- 
tions were at an optimistic 
stage. He said by the end of the 
flight to Paris both sides 
would know whether they had 
a “go” or “no go" situation. 

Both officials said yesterday 
that they were seeking a 
temporary political solution 
to the agricultural dispute 
which has ignited threats of 
retaliation and counter-retali- 
ation on both sides. 

The US administration had 
stated earlier that it would 
impose restrictive tariffs on an 
estimated $500 million worth 
of European Community 
goods on July 1 if an agree- 
ment was not reached. 

Both sides are seeking to 
avert a serious trade war that 
would not only sour relations 
between the United States and 
Europe, but would also threat- 
en the new round of trade ne- 
gotiations scheduled to begin 
early in September. 

The officials felt it was 
possible to reach a temporary 
solution and at the same lime 
continue long-term negotia- . 
lions over the agricultural 
dispute arising from the en- 
tries of Spain and Portugal 
into the Community.

The Australian government 
has ended exemptions to with- 
holding lax on interest paid 
overseas in an effort to raise

revenue but has introduced a 
new exemption for completely

units.

Thiepval, France

ysiems profits advancing by 
' million to £60 million and 
the contribution from con- 
sumer products rising 26 per 
cent to £34 million. 

• Elsewhere, income from in- 
terest and investments rose 
slightly to £182 million as a 
£30 million profit on the sale 
of Distillers shares was mostly 
eaten up by a £25 million drop 
in interest income as the 
company continued to buy in

Profits from, associates fell 
by almost half to £1 1 million,

tions from South Africa,

Dollar drops after Reagan 
urges interest rate cut 


By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 

The dollar fell yesterday. The Indicators were boosted 
following publication of anoth- by higher stock prices and 
er set of weak economic data faster money supply growth 


for the US economy, and 
suggestions from the White 
House that an early fall In 
interest rates sboaM take 
place. 

The pound gained 1.4 cents 
to $1.5472 and was later 
quoted in New York at $155. 
The dollar feB nearly two 
pfennigs to DM2,1780 and 
dropped from 16355 to 162.70 
against the yen. 

Fears of central bank inter- 
vention to 'slow the slide 
prevented the fall from being 
even sharper yesterday, with 
the Bank of Japan, m particu- 
lar, semi as reluctant to allow 
the yen to strengthen too much 
ahead of the Japanese ejec- 
tions at the weekend. 

The US leading indicators 
rose by 0.2 per cent.m May, 
against average marker expec- 
tations of a 05 per cent rise. 


but depressed by real economy 
indicators such as the average 
work week and consumer 
goods orders. 

Mr Malcolm Baktrige, the 
US Commerce Secretary, said 
that the figures did not pre- 
dude stronger growth in the 
economy In the second half of 
this year. . 

Later, Mr Larry Speakes, 
the White House press 
spokesman, said that there 
was a “historic precedent 1 * for 
interest rates to be lower than 
they were, mainly because of 
the low rate of Inflation. 
However, be denied that pres- 
sure was being exerted on the 
Federal Reserve Board to cat 
the discount rate. “What the 
Fed does is what it does,** he 
said. 


The White House's mlting- 
ness to talk down interest rates 


at a time of dollar weakness 
suggests that the US Adminis- 
tration is making good its 
threat to drive down the dollar 
because other countries, nota- 
bly Japan and Germany, are 
not making more effort to 
speed op their growth rates. 

Both Japan and Germany 
experienced first quarter de- 
clines in gross national prod- 
uct. Japan has shown a 
willingness to relax monetary 
policy by cutting the discount 
rate three times this yearbnt 
Germany's attitude has been 
cautions. 

The Bundesbank is to hold a 
press conference after its fort- 
nightly council meeting tomor- 
row, which contd indiaite an 
impending interest rate cut. 

The pound’s rise against the 
dollar helped posh the sterling 
index np 0.2 to 76 A. However, 
the London money markets 
remained cautions about the 
prospect for an early base rate 
cut, with no signifkan 


US dispute 
in battle 
for Aitken 


- By Our City Staff 

Mr Nick Oppenheim and 
Aitken Hume yesterday con- 
tinued their war of words over 
NSR, Aitken’s lucrative 
American fiind management 
group, which appears to be 
establishing itself as the main 
point of contention in Mr 
Oppenheim’s contested. £78 
million takeover bid for the 
financial services group. 

Aitken said that it had 
reiterated to Mr Oppenheim 
at a meeting of the two sides’ 
financial advisers that under 
American law, NSR could lose 
its management contracts if 
the bid became unconditional. 

Tran wood Mr Oppen- 
heim's quoted shell company, 
replied in a new offer docu- 
ment to Aitken shareholders 
that the retention of NSR's 
contracts remained a condi- 
tion of its bid. _ . 

Tranwood also said it in- 
tends to seek Takeover Panel 
approval lor an extension of 
the bid. timetable because of 
the lime it might take to 
approve the retention of 
NSR's management contracts. 
.Again, the length of this 
process is under dispute, with 
Tranwood estimating it at 10 
weeks and Aitken claiming it 
could stretch from four to 
sixmonths. 

Tranwood is claiming 36.8 
percent acceptances for ns all- 
paper bid, which offers 10 
shares for every one Aitken.

Gilts free from capital 
gains tax from today 


By Our Economics Correspondent 

securities today would be switching between 
different types of government 


Gift-ed 

become free of capital 
tax — a change which is 
expected to have significant 
effects on trading in the 
market 

The abolition of capital 
gains tax on gilts held for up to 
a year was announced at the 
beginning of July last year. 
Slocks held for longer were 
already exempt Now gilts 
bought within the past year 
and standing at a profit can be 
disposed of tax free. 

Institutions wanting capital 
losses on gilts to set against 
gains elsewhere in their port- 
folios yesterday completed 
their transactions, although 
the volume of trading suggest- 
ed that most of this adjust- 
ment had been done earlier. 
Index-linked stocks, for exam- 
ple, fell sharply on Friday. 

There were two main views 
in the market yesterday about 
the likely consecpienoes of the 
tax change. One was that there 


stock, but no net selling; 

Mr John Buch, gilts analyst 
at James Capel, expects , insti- 
tutions to switch into longer- 
dated stock, but to retain their 
overall position in the market 
because the fundamentals are 
strong. 

The other view is that there 
will be net selling, as institu- 
tions take advantage of their 
new freedom to take profits 
without incurring tax. Mr 
Chris Belchamber, a gilts ana- 
lyst at Chase Manhattan Secu- 
rities, expects disposals of 
medium-dated stocks by net 
funds. 

From Monday gilts will face 
stronger competition from the 
so-called BuHdogs, sterling 
bonds issued by foreigners. 
Under the City's “little bang,” 
these will be traded on negoti- 
ated commissions. They are 
already exempt from stamp 
duty and, from today, capital 
gains tax. 


£58m GTE 
bid wins 
Rotaflex 


By Alison Eadie 


GTE Corporation, the US- 
based telecommunications, 
lighting products and preci- 
sion materials group, emerged 
yesterday as the white knight 
which saved Rotaflex. the 
electrical manufacturer, from 
the clutches of Emess 
Lighting. 

GTE announced a knock- 
out £58.3 million agreed bid. 
which has already bagged SS 
per cent of Rotaflex's shares. 
A block of 29 per cent of the 
equity was assented by family 
trusts and directors, and GTE 
picked up 29 per cent in a 
market raid. 


Eipess, whose share offer 
was topped by 19 per cent, 
gave notice that it might sell 
its 5 per cent stake in Rotaflex. ’ 

MK Electric, which had said 
it would launch a £50.4 mil- 
lion bid for Rotaflex if the 
board would recommend it, 
also bowed oul 

It said that at the price 
offered by GTE the advan- 
tages of the merger would 
have been outweighed by the 
costs. MK also has a 5.2 per 
cent stake. 

GTE is offering 490p cash a 
share or 490p in unsecured 
floating rate loan notes. 
Emess's bid, at yesterday's 
share price of 309p, was worth 
4l2p a share and MK’s pro- 
posed bid would have been 
made at 460p a share. 

. Mr Michael Frye, chairman 
of Rotaflex, will stay on to 
manage the company’s exist- 
ing operations. GTE has said 
it does not expert any redun- 
dancies as a result of the 
merger. 

GTE had worldwide sales of 
$15.7 billion (£10.2 billion) in 
1985, including $1.9 billion of 
electrical sales through its 
Sylvania lighting products 
division. 

Sylvania sells its products in 
Britain, but a reference of the 
bid to the Monopolies and 
Mergers Commission is con- 
sidered highly unlikely. 

GTE's pretax profit before 
exceptional items was $).9 
billion Iasi year. 


CBI plea 
on merger 
policy 


By Edward Townsend 
Industrial Correspondent 


Business leaders have urged 
the Government to examine 
the prospects of Britain and 
the European Community in- 
tegrating competition policy 
to create a better framework 
**to promote the international 
competitiveness of UK com- 
panies". 

In a memorandum to Mr 
Paul Channon. Secretary of 


State for Trade and Industry. 

ilish 


the Confederation of Britis 
Industry says integration is 
appropriate at a time when 
there are increased efforts 10 
bring about a single “internal'' 
European market 
Over the years, says, the 
CBI- the EEC has developed a 
set of general principles on 
restrictive practices, set out in 
Articles 85 and 86. 

Sir Terence Beckett the CBI 
director general, adds: “It is, 
however, important that the 
review considers whether EEC 
competition .policy, in its 
present form, is consistent 
with the objective of European 
industrial competitiveness.*’ 
The CBI memorandum, 
sent on the day Britain began 
its six-month, presidency of 
the EEC. follows the an- 
nouncement by Mr Channon 
last month of a wide-ranging 
review of mergers and restrio 
live pracrices.„li will be fol-

Product liability 
rules clarified 


By Teresa Poole 
Businesses will not be held have been 
liable for product defects that 
coaid not possibly have been 
foreseen, Mr Michael How- 
ard, Minister for Corporate 
and Consumer Affairs, an- 
nounced yesterday. 

The Government has decid- 
ed to allow companies to plead 
the controversial “develop- 
ment risks defence” when the 
European Economic Commu- 
nity directive on prodnet liabil- 
ity is implemented in Britain, 
probably late next year. 

Under the EEC directive, 
consumers will have greater 
redress against manufacturers 
of unsafe products, and' a 


re- 


persuaded by 
peated and forceful represen- 
tations from a large number of 
industrial organizations and 
others that the absence of a 
development risks defence 
could hold back the develop- 
ment and marketing of new 
products and new processes in 
certain high-risk, innovative 
sectors, and that it is against 
the general Interests of 
botbindnstry and consumers 
that such innovation should be 
inhibited**. 

But the decision prompted 
immediate criticism from con- 
sumer organizations which 
claim the defence will allow all 


person who is injured by a ' experimental drugs to escape 
defective product will be able the new strict liability laws. 


to <*i«iwi against the manufac- 
turer or importer without hav- 
ing to prove negligence; At the 
moment, anyone other than 
the purchaser has to prove 
that someone in the chiiu of 
supply has been negligent. 

The' development risks de- 
fence — which is optional 
under the directive — removes 


however disastrous the results. 
Mr Peter Goldman, director of 
the Consumers* Association, 
said; “Is this one area where 
the Government has the option 
of going the whole bog and 
providing a truly comprehen- 
sive new compensation law, it 
has copped out under pressure 
from the CBI**. 

Mr Howard also announced 


yesterday that there wili be no 
when the state of scientific lod f inIBci a| limit on a 

technical knowledge at the naorfacnrer’s Kabilit). He 


time the product was launched 
could not have discovered the 
existence of the defect. 

The Government has come 
under enormous pressure from 
industry representatives, in- 
cluding the Confederation of 
British Industry, to mdade the 
defence. Mr Howard said: “I 


was not persuaded by argu- 
ments that a limit would keep 
down insurance costs. 

On the question of unpro- 
cessed agricultural produce — 
fruit, vegetables, and meat - 
the Government has decided 
that exemption from liability 
should be maintained.

Loyalty and logic in 
Woolworth’s favour 


To-day is the closing date for 
Dixons' offer for Woolworth. It is 
widely expected to fail though it 
should be said that if the Prudential, 
which is honouring the event with a 
full board meeting, were to cast its 8 
per cent for Dixons, it would un- 
doubtedly sway many small institu- 
tions toward Stanley Kalins and his 
charismatic retailing team. As the 
deadine approached Ron Artus, the 
Pru’s chief guru played his cards close 
to his chest but as one wit observed, 
“Ron always plays his cards close to 
his chest, even when he lays them on 
the table." 

If the Pru were to deliver Wool- 
worth to Dixons it would final] y kill 
the notion of shareholder loyalty, 
which admittedly is a fragile thing not 
to be trusted. As one of the group of 
institutions which though the initia- 
tive of Charterhouse Japhet in 1982 
broke the link between with the 
original American parent and set the 
British company on a new path, it 
supported a new management team 
with a five to seven year prospectus 
revive the fortunes of a high steel 
retailing chain which through its 
ineptitude had driven its shareholders 
to despair, and beyond. 

In the subsequent three and a half 
years, the Paternoster group which 
Victor Blank at Charterhouse had 
brought together, has seen its Wool- 
worth shareholding increase in value 
tenfold. Moreover from seeming to 
put more emphasis on financial 
management — Woolworth was, and 
still is, a substantial owner of saleable 
property — the new team under chief 
executive. Geoffrey Mulcahy has 
developed a credible retailing strategy 
for the FW chain. And in Comet and 
especially B & Q, which have tended 
to be overlooked in the argument 
about the group’s future, Woolworth 
have two businesses that are outstand- 
ing in their own fields of electrical 
retailing and DIY. 

There must be a temptation for all 
fund managers, if they have not 
already sold, their shares, in the 
market, to take Dixons' terms. At last 
night's clpsing price for Dixons sof 
332p, they have the choice of 817.6p a 
share in Dixons paper or 799.4p in 
cash and part paper. Woolworths 
dosed at 7 1 5p and there is at least the 
chance that they will again go lower 
should the bid fail. The Paternoster 
group paid a mere 82p in 1982. 

On the face of it, fund managers, 
even those who backed the new style 
Woolworth from the beginning, have 
an almost overwhelming fiduciary 
duty to take their profit. Unless their 
sense of loyalty is stiffened by a 
strictly commercial calculation that 
the Woolworth management, stirred 
from the lethargy that appeared to be 
creeping in toward the end of last year 
and put firmly on their merits by 
Dixons' opportunistic offer, will pro- 
ceed to deliver the goods with a 
renewed sense of urgency. 

It almost certainly will, not least 
because of two further arguments. In 
the first place there is a growing 
misgiving in the City about hostile 
takeover bids, which in the High 
Street especially have usually prom- 
ised far more than they have deliv- 
ered. In the second place, there is a 
feeling that Dixons would serve sits 
shareholders better by not spreading 
itself over the the much more diverse 
Woolworth business. This argument* 
overlooks the obvious fact that in 
bidding for Woolworth Mr. Kalms 
has advertised the fact that Dixons 
needs to diversify to sustain its 
excellent growth rate. 

Dixons is likely to be disappoointed 
this time round- and that on balance 
would be the right outcome of the 


current bid. But having had more time 
to absorb Currys, Mr. Kalms will be 
back. Perhaps be should do a deal 
with GUS. 

GEC in limbo 

Like its prey Plessey, GEC is in a state 
of limbo, waiting for the Monopolies 
Commission to report on the planned 
takeover. Plessey's Sir John Clark will 
be scanning the latest GEC results for 
any weakness to exploit in the battle 
ahead, assuming the commission or 
ministers wave the bid through. 
Simple approval is still not a foregone 
conclusion at this late stage, nor is 
GEC 100 per cent committed 10 
bidding, although withdrawal would 
be a surprise. 

Sir John and his advisers will find 
no obvious nasty new cracks in GEO'S 
solid financial facade. In a year when 
profits have slipped in line with 
market expectations, the second half 
showed an improving trend after the' 
poor first half figures, and the lower 
corporation tax rate and more buying 
in of shares have helped keep earnings 
moving ahead. Stodgy as GECs 
performance may seem against the 
general recovery and the performance 
of financial conglomerates, Lord 
Weinstock has certainly done a lot 
better than Plessey, Racal or STC over 
the past couple of years. 

In the absence of rationalization 
benefits from integrating Plessey, 
however, there.are few pointers as yet 
to a great upsurge in profits. Defence 
cuts will not help recovery at Marconi, 
and the Chernobyl accident seems to 
rule out anything but a modest new 
nuclear power programme at home. 
Over the past ten years Japan has 
ordered 270 assorted turbine gen- 
erators for power stations and Britain 
has ordered seven. GEC has survived 
remarkably well by increasing exports, 
but some domestic business would 
certainly be.useful. 

The difficulties in telecommunica- 
tions, caused in part by the machismo 
of privatized British Telecom, are not 
what is needed if Britain is to stay 
strong in the manufacturing end of 
telecommunications 

The Plessey takeover would ensure 
continued strength in this market and 
allow Lord Weinstock to use again the 
skills he displayed in bringing together 
GEC, AEI and English Electric. That 
is the most important and problemati- 
cal factor in GECs' future 


Valuable deterrent 

If 


The Stock Exchange's long-standing 
opposition to the proposal 


put for- 
ward by the Securities and Invest- 
ments Board that member firms 
should segregate their own and their 
clients' money is misconceived. 

The exchange argues that segrega- 
tion will not stop villains from being 
villains and that investor protection 
against the insolvency of member 
firms is best achieved through its 
compensation fund, rather than hav- 
ing clients’ money held in a separate 
trust accoum. It claims that segrega- 
tion will impose an unwarranted 
administrative burden on member 
firms. 

Segregation, however, would make 
misappropriation of clients' money 
far easier to detect at an early stage. It 
would also act as a well signposted 
deterrent to those tempted to 
“borrow” clients' money to tide them 
over temporary difficulties. To look at 
segregation purely in terms of outright 
villains and protection against insol- 
vency is to ignore those who acciden- 
tally slip into criminality. 

The administrative problems can 
be solved through computerization 
and more vigilant monitoring of 
clients' individual accounts. 


Dawson pays £30m in US deals 


Dawson International; the 
Pringle and Braemar luxury 
knitwear group, is spending 
£30 million on two companies 
in the United States which 
make shower curtains and 
thermal underwear. 

- The larger deal, worth £20 
million.- is for Associated 
Products, a £200 million a 
year business. It employs 
1.000 people making shower 
curtains and selling them 
through leading store chains. 

Last year API earned profits 


By Cliff Felthum 

of £3.6 million on a turnover 
of £44 million. Dawson is 
paying for the deal through a 
share issue. 

In a separate transaction, 
Dawson is taking over 
Duofbld. which supplies ther- 
mal underwear and sports- 
wear to more than 2.000 
sports and ski shops and mail 
order houses. 

The goods are similar to 
those already sold by J.E. 
Morgan Knitting Mills, which 
Dawson bought two years ago. 


rs 


solalion for Dawson, whose 
merger with Coats Patons last 
winter was frustrated by the 
intervention of Vantona 
Viyella. 

For the lime being, it says, it 
has turned its back on the UK 
scene and is keen to pick up 
speciality textile firms in the 
United States which will now 
contribute about 30 percent of 
overall profits. In the slock 
market the shares were un- 
changed at 25Sp.

Extracts from the Chairman's Review: 

Group profit before taxation for the twelve months ended 31 st March, 1986 was 
£9,023,000, an improvement of 27% over the previous year. Earnings per share rose 
by 54% to 15.1 p per share. 


All parts of the business performed well. 


The dividend of 5.5p will be 22% up, representing a further step in the Board's policy 
of recommending steadily increasing dividends. 


It is much too early to forecast results for the current year in the present uncertain fuef 
markets, but the Directors plan to consolidate the advances made in 1985/86.

C TEMPUS 5 

of gloom 



Om way of avoiding .drawing 
attention to poor figures is to 
do what Ferranti did yester- 
Lday: delay die announcement 
.until the afternoon when all 
the defence and electronics 
analysts are attending a GEC 
meeting. Usually the 
announcement is made at 
,10 JO am. 

Unfortunately, it did not 
have the desired result. The 
market promptly marked the 
snares down 14p to U4p 
when it heard that pretax 
prom fqr the year to March 
31 had fallen 1 ] percent' to 
£41 million, against expecta- 
tions of £45 million to £49 
million. • 

h appears that in addition 
to the expected poor result 
from the electronics division 
— where the operating profit 
slumped from £J.0.3 million 
to £3.7 million — defence was 
flatter than expected. Not 
only was there a decline in 
offshore procurement, one of 
the most profitable areas, 
there was also a slowdown in 
electro-optics orders. A 50 
per cent increase in net 
interest costs to £6.5 million 
completed the erosion of the 
bottom line lblaL 

Ferranti.despiie a record 
£700 million order book, win 
need to work hare! for its 
profit to- recover to the £46 
million ii made in 1984-85. 

. As the statement accompany- 
ing the figures said: “The 
difficulties in the world semi- 
conductor industry, changing 
policies in government pro- 
curement, and fierce compe- 
tition in the office product 
field at home and overseas 
will make 198 7 a challenging 
year." 

This sort of gloomy talk is 
guaranteed to take the gloss 
off Ferrantfs premium rat- 
ing. Earnings per. share of 
. 7Jp in 1986-87 puts the,, 
shares on a prospective mul- 
tiple of J 5,8, still a 13 percent 
premium. 

Mr Basil de Ferranti, the 
.chairman, was right. In the 
last nine months, he has sold 
more than 1.4 million shares 
to invest in farms. His fellow 
directors .have sold another 
140^000 ra the same period. 

Investors, should not ex- 
pect too much help for the 
share price from, takeover 
speculation as there is likely 
to be. opposition from the 
Ministry • of . Defence. The 
shares probably have further.

Northern Fowls has' some 
tales to tell about the incon- 
sistencies of the nation’s eat- 
ing habits. Yesterday it said 
that demand for low-fet milk 


is still growing, but so is 
demand forridi cream cakes. 

The company believes it 
has to address the market for 
healthy foods and to that end 
it is stepping up production 
of low-fat milk from between 
14 and 15 per cent of total 
production to the national 
average of 18 per cent .It 
points out. -however, that 
only 10 to 15 per cent of the 
food market is health- 
conscious. 

Tastes are changing with 
greater rapidity than in the 
past. Last year, Northern 
Foods suffered from a slump 
in demand for pies ana 
traditional sausages. It re- 
sponded by developing a low- 
fat sausage, something that 
sounds more Continental 
than British. Flexibility is 
. now the key word. 

The concern for health is 
but one of the driving forces 
behind the company's recent 
di sposals and acquisitions. 
During the year it sold North 
Country Brewers and consoli- 
dated its dairy interests with 
the acquisition of the Express 
Dairy business in the North 
of England and a similar 
Unigate business m Liver- 
. pool. In addition, it bought 
Bowyers (Wiltshire), a pie 
manufacturer, and rince the 
year-end it has acquired LO 
Jeffs, a vegetable and salad 
company. 

This reshuffle, involving 
deals worth £180 million 
over 18 months, bad little 
effect on the results for the 
year to March 3], when the 
company made £ 66. 1 million 
before tax, up- from £55.4 
million. But this year the 
acquisitions should be benefi- 
cial, .with Express and 
Bowyers expected to contrib- 
ute £5 million before tax. 
Two problem American com- 
panies, DAK Foods and 
Southern Belle, have been 
sold since the year-end which 
should boost profits this year. 

The" company is "keen to 
replace its American busi- 
nesses but h looks as if any 
acquisitions may have to be 
for paper as the ratio of net 


debt to shareholders' funds is 
41.5 per cent, even after 
taking account of the post- 
balance sheet events. 

Last year's American prob- 
lems depressed the share 
rating so that at 292p the 
shares are trading on less than 
13 times prospective earn- 
ings. assuming profits of £77 
million this year. Thai multi- 
ple is roughly in line with the 
sector, whereas Northern 
Foods-has traditionally trad- 
ed at a premium. 

If investors are not im- 
pressed-by the customer list , 
which is beaded by Marks 
and Spencer in Britain and 
McDonald's in America, they 
might be attracted by the 
company’s realistic approach 
to diet. The shares look good 
value. 

S&N Breweries 

Cheering on England in the 
World Cup has been thirsty 
work for millions of armchair 
viewers — but wonderful 
news for the brewers supply- 
ing the take-home trade. 

The mini-boom has been 
particularly welcome for 
Scottish and Newcastle Brew- 
eries, which has the largest 
slice of the take-home market 
and has just come through a 
difficult 12 months. 

Pretax profits for the year 
to April were up from £65.2 
million to £75. 1 million and 
the dividend is raised from 
8.87p to 9.92p. Operating 
profits on beer trading were a 
creditable 16 per cent ahead 
at a time when volume 
growth has remained fairly 
static. 

But the Thistle Hotels 
chain, although showing an 
improvement of 30 per cent, 
suffered in the final two 
months from terrorist fears 
and a sharp decline in Ameri- 
can visitors. 

Occupancy rates are still 
down and, while business 
should recover, it seems un- 
likely that the division will 
show any real growth in the 
current year. 

The low point of the year 
for Scottish and Newcastle 
was its feiture to win control 
of the brewers Matthew 
Brown, which accounts for 
£ 2 J million of the extraordi- 
nary charges. But it still holds 
just under 30 per cent and is 
free to resume hostilities at 
the end of the year. 

The current bout of good 
weather will do this year's 
prospects no harm and esti- 
mates of about £85 million 
look to be in sight The shares 
eased 8 p to 201 p, where they 
appear reasonably valued for 
the time being. 


UL acts to halt fall 


- - United Leasing, the IBM 
computer leasing company,

.between £4.25 million and 
£43 million for the year to 
.March 3 K Detailed figures are 


due to be published on July 
14. 

United Leasing's shares

£6.6m 
for Granby 

By Lawrence Lever 

Boase Massimi PoIIitt, the 
advertising and sales promo- 
tion group, yesterday joined 
the acquisition trail blued by 
many of its competitors by 
announcing the purchase of 
the Granby Group for an 
anticipated £ 6.6 million, cou- 
pled with a £9J million rights 
issue. 

Boase produced an estimate 
of pretax profits for the six 
months ending June 30 of 
£1.65 million (£1.48 million) 
and said that it intended 
paying a 5.75p final dividend 
for the current financial year 
(4.5p). 

The privately owned Gran- 
by Group, which specializes in 
handling the administrative 
functions of sales promotions, 
for clients such as Kelloggs, 
Shell and Cadbury, is warrant- 
ing profits of at least £1 
million for the period to June 
30. 1986. 

Boase is paying an initial 
£4.4 million cash and a further 
sum, linked to profits. 

Mr Martin Boase, chairman 
of Boase, said that Granby 
would complement its Mar- 
keting Solutions sales promo- 
tions subsidiary, which it 
acquired in December, 1984. 

yesterday’s two-for-seven 
rights issue at 250p represent- 
ed a 16.3 per cent discount to 
Boase’s opening price of 299p 
before the announcement 

The shares, which closed 8 p 
lower at 291, have been as 
high as 369p this year. The net 
£9.3 million raised will fi- 
nance the Granby purchase 
and other acquisitions 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Capel vote lifts Woolworth 


James Capel. the stockbroker, 
threw its weight behind the 
beleaguered Woolworth man- 
agement yesterday by predict- 
ing that the downward 
potential for the company’s 
shares remains minimal if 
Dixons loses the £1,900 mil- 
lion battle for control of the 
group. 

Shares of Woolworth took 
heart from this vote of confi- 
dence as several institutional 
buyers chased the price 25p 
higher to 7 1 5p. The shares still 
stand around 90p below the 
Dixons cash alternative,' but 
the news from Capel. a big 
admirer of Mr Geoffrey 
Mulcahy and his management 
team at Woolworth. wilt have 
reassured many fund manag- 
ers troubled by accepting the 
Dixons offer. 

Some of them feared that 
Woolworth share price could 
fall below 600p if the Dixons 
bid fails and that it would rake 
a long time to make up the 
shortfall. 

But Capel maintains that 
Woolworth price is unlikely to 
fall below 660p and. at that 
level, it would certainly be a 
buyer of the shares. One fund 
manager, still to make up his 
mind which side to vote for, 
said: “If someone like Capel is 
prepared to buy Woolworth 
shares, it is unlikely that they 
will fell sharply over the short 
term.” 

However, with the closing 
date today, the contestants 
were still running neck-and- 
neck yesterday. Some dealers 
were predicting that Dixons 
would be lucky if it mustered 
more that 35 per cent accep- 
tances. Dixons finished 2p up 
at 332p, after 334p. 


3i rej'ects 
float after 
profit leap 

By Teresa Poole 

Investors in Industry (3i), 
the world's biggest single 
source of venture capital, 
yesterday ruled out a stock 
market flotation for the 
foreeeable future. 

Announcing record pretax 
profits, up by £7 million to 
£46.2 million for the year to 
March 31, the chairman. Vis- 
count Caldecote, said that no 
decision had yet been made on 
the question of any change in 
ownership and that the share- 
holders — the major clearing 
banks and the Bank of En- 
gland — intended to maintain 
effective control of 31 

He said: “This statement 
has removed much of the 
uncertainty which might have 
harmed 3i’s excellent credit 
rating, and has allowed us to 
resume the funding of our 
ever-growing portfolio in the 
international bond markets.” 

Last year the value of 3i’s 
investment assets increased by 
£235 million to £1.9 billion, 
and net assets per share in- 
creased by 31 per cent to 
£5.71. 

However, the total invested 
during the year fell from £345 
million to £318 million. This 
decrease masked a £21 million 
upsurge in equity investment 
to £91 million,' which was 
more than offset by a decrease 
in total loan investment and 
leased assets. 

There was also substantial 
growth in the number and size 
of management buyouts with 
3i backing 91 teams of manag- 
ers. The number of business 
failures rose by 30 to 205 and 
provision for possible failure 
reached a record £32.6 mil- 
lion. but Mr Jon Foulds. chief 
executive, said that the num- 
ber of companies in difficul- 
ties had begun to felL He 
added that 3i saw positive 
signs of resurgence in the 
private company sector. 

“This re-awakening of 
entrpreneurial activities may 
not be measured statistically 
but it is taking place at the 
grass roots level, amongst 
managers and owners of busi- 
nesses in our communities.” 

Investors in Industry has 
£656 million of equity invest- 
ments in 2.400 companies. 


15% limit 

The French government's 
plan . to privatize 65 State 
industries will initially limit 
the holdings of foreign compa- 
nies to 15 percent, M Edouard 
Balladur, the Economics Min- 
ister, said in Paris. 


The rest of the equity 
market continued to enjoy 
selective support following an- 
other firm performance over- 
night on Wall Street. Dealers 
reported that funds were con-

Australians working with the world 


AUSTRALIA. Young. Vigorous. Land of opportunity. 

Land o f the future. 

AUSTRALIA Home of the Bond Corporation, where we 
are in the business of making opportunities. And making the 
most of them. 

BOND. Successful. Strong Growing Australian and proud 
of it but international too - the world is our market place. 

We do business in the UK, USA Canada, the Middle East 
and increasingly, Asia. 

We believe in the most modem methods and equipment 
But above all we believe in people. Because progress comes 
from people (we’ve never heard of a method or a machine that 
invented itself). And we believe in Australians - because we 
know what they can achieve. 

Bond's Australians have built Bond Corporation into a 
dynamic international enterprise, secure on a strong and 
diversified cash-flow base: BREWING (acro ss th irsty Australia 
and in the USA plus growing exports); ELECTRONIC 


MEDIA (TV and radio); ENERGY (oil and coal in Australia, 
international exploration). 

As a major property developer we are working in joint 
ventures on some of Australia’s biggest city redevelopments. 

We are in retailing minerals and real estate. We are the major 
shareholder in the partnership distributing the outstanding 
Korean Hyundai cars in Australia - a practical expression of 
our expanding associations in China and the Asian-Pacific 
region. 

We see great potential worldwide for our strategic 
investment in Airship Industries Ltd, with Skyships having 
military, coastguard, rescue, tourism and advertising 
applications. 

It was Austra lian ability and determination which captured 


the world’s attention when we won the Americas Cup - and \ 
Bond was part of it 

That spirit of modern Australia will be shown again in the 
coming months when the America’s Cup is contested off the 
coast of Perth, Western Australia. ' 

At Bond we are proud that we played a part in turning the . 
international spotlight on opportunity-rich Australia. Not for 
ourselves, but for all Australians.

TIMES 


A SPECIAL REPORT ON 
WESTERN AUSTRALIA 


THE 


July 2, 1986 


Enterprise 


9 


in a world 
of its own 


A n overwhelming 
sense, of isolation 
has dominated the 
development of 
Western Australia, 
both economically and social- 
ly. “You’re from the East, are 
you?" said with a hint of 
distrust, is a typical greeting 
for people from the nest of 
Australia. 

This is not meant to suggest 
that the sandgropers. as West 
Australians are called by their 
fellow countrymen — because 
their forebears groped in the 
sand for gold - are anything 
other than friendly, but rather 
to indicate the sense of “not 
belonging” to the rest of the 
country that permeates life in 
the West. 

It is this isolation, the locals 
tell visitors, that has given 
WA the great entrepreneurial 
spirit of which they are so 
proud and West Australians 
point to such figures as Alan 
Bond, of America's Cup fame, 
and Robert Holmes a Court 
the corporate raider and 
would-be owner of Australia’s 
biggest company, BHP, as 
examples. They fail to tell you 
that neither was bom in the 
slate nor, for that matter, in 
Australia. However, both 
made their fortunes in the 
freewheeling environment of 
the WesL 

Mr Bond in particular, is a 
classic rags-to- riches story. He 
arrived from England with no 
more than a keen eye for 
business. Today he heads an 
empire which includes proper- 
ty, brewing, mining and oil. 
He is one of WA’s “sons”, 
particularly since bringing 
home the America’s Cup. 

The America’s Cup served 
to show the rest of the world 
and, to an extent the rest of 
Australia the enormous 


growth which has taken place 
in the state over the past 20 
years, fuelled largely by the 
minerals boom. Today West- 
ern Australia has the highest 
growth rate of any state in 
Australia and has doubled its 
population in the last 20 years. 

Perhaps one needs to look at 
one or two statistics to fully 
understand Western 
Australia's feeling of isolation 
and some of the resentment it 
feels towards people in the 
East and the politics ns in 
Canberra in particular. 

For example. Western Aus- 
tralia occupies nearly a third 
of the total land mass of 
mainland Australia, yet has 
slightly fewer than I 'k million 
people out of a national 
population of slightly more 

The last state 
to join the 
Commonwealth 

than 16 million; Perth, the 
stale capital, is closer to 
Jakarta than Sydney and is the 
most isolated capital city of its 
size anywhere in the world its 
nearest neighbour being Ade- 
laide. 2,000 km (1,250 miles) 
to the east; the state produces 
more than 20 per cent of 
Australia’s export income, yet 
has only about 9 per cent of 
the population, a greater pro- 
portion of export earnings per 
capita than any other state. 

Another source of resent- 
ment is the high cost of air 
fares between Perth and the 
rest of the country. For exam- 
ple, an economy return be- 
tween Perth and Melbourne, a 
distance of 2,700 km by air, is 
AS682 (about £340), and the 
train fare, including a sleeper, 
is about the same. The road 


journey is now no longer the 
drama it used to be. but it is 
only in the last 20 years that 
the final stretch of unsealed 
road on the main highway 
Unking WA with the east has 
been sealed 

Historically, the slate has 
had an uneasy relationship 
with the rest of Australia and 
periodically the separatist 
movement always under the 
surface, calls for the state to 
break away from the Austra- 
lian Commonwealth. 

WA achieved self-govern- 
ment only in 1890 and was 
even then largely dependent 
on the UK for funds and was 
the last state to join the 
Commonwealth of Australia. 
The state parliament had 
blocked moves in 1898 and 
1899 to hold a referendum on 
the issue of joining the pro- 
posed Commonwealth. 

After federation WA did not 
benefit from the industrializa- 
tion that occurred in New 
South Wales and Victoria but 
continued to depend on agri- 
culture and gold mining. 

The First World War took a 
heavy toll of the state’s young 
men and its impact was all the 
greater in such a relatively 


small population. After the 
war attempts were made to 
develop the state's South- 
West and many underprivi- 
leged people from Britain were 
encouraged to take up large 
allotments. Unfortunately, 
most had no idea of fanning 
and the scheme failed. 

In 1948 land 400 miles east 
of Perth was opened up to 
settlement when it was found 
that what had been considered 
unusable could be used for 
wheat-growing with the addi- 
tion of certain trace elements. 
The scheme prospered and 
now WA is the biggest wheat- 
producing state. 

However, again the state 
was dependent on agriculture 
and no firmer footing had 
been found for its economy. It 
still received more from the 
Commonwealth government 
that it provided in revenue 
and its relationship with the 
more prosperous eastern 
states was that of a mendicant 


The situation started to 
change only with the decision' 
by the federal government in 
1960 to allow the export of 
iron ore, until then considered 
a strategic resource and, be- 
cause it was felt Australia 
barely possessed enough for its 
own needs, forbidden to be 
exported. 

Today WA is one of the 
world's largest sources of iron 
ore and possesses two of the 
world's biggest deposits, at Mt 
Newman and Mt Tom Price, 
each of which produces about 
40 million tonnes a year. The 
slate has the capacity to 
produce annually about 110 
million tonnes of iron ore. 
Japan, Taiwan, South Korea 
and Europe are the main 
customers. 

In addition to iron ore, WA 
is the worid'5 largest single 
producer of bauxite. The 
stale's other major mineral 
products are: mineral sands. 


gold, nickel, salt for chemicals, 
copper, zinc, silica, crude oil, 
natural gas and brown coal. 

The North-West Shelf natu- 
ral gas scheme is the largest 
engineering project in Austra- 
lia; it is estimated that be- 
tween now and 1990 A$l! 
billion will be invested in the 
scheme and it will earn US$90 
billion. 

All this prosperity and de- 
velopment. with its attendant 
building boom, has come 
about within the space of 26 
years since the momentous 
decision by Canberra to lift 
the export ban on ore. This 
has transformed WA from a 
mainly agricultural state with 
the son of infrastructure and 
services demanded by such an 
economy into a prime world 
resource power. 

Such activity has attracted 
people to the West from ail 
over Australia to obtain the 
higher wages being paid at 
some of the more remote 
projects. 

However, most of the influx 
has ended up in Perth, which 
is the attraction for many 
newly arrived migrants both 
from overseas and inside Aus- 
tralia. Perth has a Mediterra- 


nean climate and a extremely 
relaxed lifestyle which many 
people find irresistible. 

With house prices between 
a third and half those of 
Melbourne and Sydney, one of 
the highest pleasure-boat own- 
ership figures in the country 
and a city where it is still 
possible, physically and finan- 
cially, to live within a quarter 
of an hour’s drive of work, iris 
not surprising that it draws 
people looking for a new start. 

Holding court over this 
seemingly ideal state of affairs 
is Brian Burke, the Premier, 
the third youngest in the 
slate’s history. Mr Burke was 
re-elected for a second three- 
year term last February and 

Much of the race 
euphoria will : 
boost the Premier 

became the first Premier in- 
WA in 30 years to lead a Labor 
Party government to victory 
in consecutive polls. 

A former journalist and TV 
current-affaire reporter, Mr 
Burke is one of the new breed 
of Labor policiticans in Aus- 
tralia who feels no over- 
whelming allegiance to the 
trade-union movement. Veiy 
much a Bob Hawke man, he is 
close to the federal Prime 
Minister. 

Born in 1947. the third of 
five- children of Madeline and 
the late Thomas Burke, he was 
brought up in a Roman Catho- 
lic. political home. His father 
was a federal Labor minister 
in the 1940s. Mr Burke has 
had a rapid rise to the top 
since entering state parliament 
in 1973. He was appointed a 


shadow minister of the state 
Opposition in 1976 and elect- 
ed party leader in. 1981. In 
February '1983 he-ted' the party 
back to government. _v 

He' has a reputation for ' 
being able, to get to the point of 
an argument' quickly and re- 
duce it to its simplest form, a 
quality he learnt in his years as 
a TV reporter. Since winning 0 " 
the leadership, he has success- ' 1 
fully dealt with, ihe more 
extreme elements on both the 
left and the right. r : . 

Should Australia retain the 
America’s Cup next ' year, 
much of the euphoria will no 
doubt rub off on the Premier. 

The state government has put 
a lot of effort and money into 1 

ensuring that the event pro- 
vides a world showcase for 
Western Australia and Austra- 
lia in generaL-. 

The state goverment’s input 
is about AS 50 million (about 
£25- million). It is estimated 
that the event will bring in 
AS600 million overtheperiod 
from Christmas 1983 until the 
raring ends some time next 
year. Undoubtedly, the 0 ' 
America's Cup is the focal 
point for the state for the next 
six months. • • • ; ; 

The only cloud on the horizon 
is the downturn 'is -world 
mineral prices. However, the 
dump in prices, can be Ken 
only as a temporary setback. 

With continued turmoil in 
South Africa and that 
country’s uncertain political . 
future. Western Australia's 
mineral industry, given that it 
produces much of what South 
Africa exports, can look for- 
ward to a bright future in the 
long run.

. Mining is Western Australia's 

- last great hope for the future, 
as us rarmers and manufactur- 
ers battle against rising do- 

- mesuc costs, crippling interest 
rates and shrinking markets. 

- Gout, silver, diamonds, coal, 

1 . bauxite, oil and gas, uranium, 

cobalt, copper, tin, nickel - 
almost every mineral known 
. . to mankind has been found in 
tlie^tate. 

‘ - Political turmoil in South 
" Africa could open up a new 
^era^f mineral development in 
■Western Australia, one of the 
few places on earth with 
.comparable mineral resources 

and the supremely impor- 
tant advantage of a stable, 
democratic society. There are. 
signs that its political leaders 
are now determined to capital- 
ize on this natural asset, no 
. ‘longer content to see their 
state remain a quarry for the 
world. 

Western Australia's mineral 
_ production was worth more 
than A$5,000 million (about 
£2.155 million) last year, and 

- its mines accounted for 21 per 
/ cent of . national mineral 

exports. 

Yet most West Australian 
minerals, are stQl exported as 
raw material. The stale has no 
steel industry, no blast fur- 
naces and no pelletizing plants 
for the simplest form of iron 
ore^processing, despite a huge 
energy surplus in the form of 

nat ural gag 

The rich new Argyle dia- 
mond mine,- in the state's for 
‘ northern Kimberley region, is 
a vivid illustration of the 
problems besetting West Aus- 
tralian mine developers. Ar- 
gute -will increase free world 

- diamond production by 
around 50 per cent, increase 
international gem diamond 
output by 20 per cent, and 
provide the worid, for the first 
time, with an assured supply 
of industrial diamonds. 

. t However, Australia wiD still 
have to import, diamonds for 
jewellery . and industry, as 
Argykfs output is mostly sold 
. through^ the De Beers cartel. 
The international banks in- 
sisted on this as a condition of 
their finance — AS460 million, 

. The mine is owned by 
Conziac -Rio jinw> Australia 
(56.6 per cent), Ashton Min- 
ing <36.2 pef : cent) and the 
West. Australian Diamond 
: Trust (5 per cent). Aigyle will 
contribute A$200 minion or 
jnoreio national mineral ex- 
pori eamings for the next 20 
yeaTS . or more, if present 
buoyant market trends 
-continue. 

The gold industry, however, 
is thriving, and still tax-free, 
though this privileged status 
may not last much longer. 
Some of Australia's shrewdest 
businessmen, such as Alan 
Bond and John Elliott, are 
investing millions in 
die's mines and associ- 


million) of Western 
Australia's mineral produc- 
tion in 1985 but the mining 
companies have suffered with 
the international steel indus- 
try in recent years. Longer 
term, their future looks good, 
given the Pilbara's proximity 
to the Asian markets. 

Past iron ore earnings have 
been impressive. From a com- 
bined total investment of 
AS 5.000 million, the compa- 
nies have already mined 1 , 1 92 
million tonnes of ore, worth 
AS 16,000 million, according 
to official .figures, which 
would have been even higher 
if the Japanese had not proved 
themselves more skilful nego- 
tiators than the local 
developers. 

A giant in the international 
league is the North Rankin gas 
field, off the Pilbara coast, 
with reserves of 200 billion 
cubic metres of gas and 125 
million barrels of condensate. 
The North West Shelf consor- 
tium — the Australian compa- 
nies Woodside and BHP, as 
well as BP Australia, CaJ- 
Asiatic, Shell, and Mimi 
(Mitsubishi- Mitsui), all equal 
partners — has invested 
AS 1.200 million in the 
project, the biggest in Austra- 
lian history. 

By 1994, when fully opera- 
tional it could be earning the 
developers AS2.000 million a 
year, with liquefied natural gas

The' commission is also 
fecinga 1985-86 interest bill of 
AS240 million, much of it due 
to the cost of borrowing one 
billion dollars or so to build a 
pipeline to bring the gas south 
to Perth. The interest bill is on 
the verge of overtaking the 
projected cost of generating 
electricity, AS 252 million. _ 

This awesome problem is 
the result of an extraordinary 
“take or pay" contract signed 
in 1980, the only one the 
developers had in hand when 
they launched the ambitious 


of gas a day for the next 20 
years, around 30 per cent over 
current demand. 

Western Australia’s bauxite 
mines are now the largest in 
the world, producing more 
than 14 per cent of present 
global needs, more than AS I 
billion worth last year. Known 
resources . amount to 2,000. 
million tonnes. 

Tough political decisions 
must be made, if this region 
was going to realize its true 
economic potential Brian 
Burke, Western Australia’s 
Labor Premier, said in a 
recent economic statement to 
parliament “To date we have 
largely been content to take a 
quick profit from selling the 
raw produce of our mines and 
farms on world markets, rath- 
er than processing it prior to 
export" he said. 

Big sections of Australia's 
manufacturing industry bad 
found it easier over the years 
to lobby for high tariffs and 
other trade barriers than to 
work at innovation, high tech- 
nology and investment to 
ensure fiiture international 
competitiveness, Mr Burke 
said. His government was 
facing a revenue shortfall of 
AS306 million in the coming 
year, equivalent to 1 0 per cent 
of the current year’s budgeL 

He was determined the next 
one would be balanced, he 
said, and announced a series 
of public service cuts includ- 
ing 3.000 jobs, and increases 
in government charges and 
state taxes. 

StilL with its rich endow- 
ment of mineral and agricul- 
tural resources, 

complemented by a well-edu- 
cated. healthy and energetic 
population, the future looked 
bright for Western Australia, 
the Premier said. AH that was 
needed was initiative, enter- 
prise and sound management 

This remains to be seen, 
given the deep structural 
weaknesses of the Australian 
economy, and its vulnerabili- 
ty, as a trading nation, to 
overseas protectionism.

On the beach at Whatsitsnameville 


Western Australia is a rattling 
good place for the simple 
meteorologist. Where else in 
the worid can climate be 
understood in terms of two 
straightforward concepts? 

In winter low pressure 
fronts off the Indian Ocean 
sweep across the South-West 
to sustain agriculture during 
the short wet winters. In 
summer high pressure cells 
inland maintain long dry sum- 
mers. There are, of course, 
some minor complications 
like cyclones in the North, but 
the weather pattern is basical- 
ly up and down, hot and cold. 

The economy matches the 
weather. In the absence of any 
significant manufacturing sec- 
tor. the state relies heavily on 
agriculture and mining. Like 
the weather, both are prey to 
changing conditions overseas, 
so successive governments 
have sought to diversify the 
state's economy. 

That need for diversifica- 
tion has seldom been more 
urgent. Wheat prices are fall- 
ing foster than costs are rising 
The demand for iron ore and 
nickel has dropped lower than 
the pits and shafts supplying 
these minerals. Only gold is 
looking good — and tourism. 

The defence of the 
America’s Cup by former 
Englishman and local mega- 
millionaire Alan Bond now 
appears ideally suited to flat- 
ten, if not halt. Western 
Australia's declining fortunes. 
The troubled West may yet 
experience a yacht-led eco- 
nomic recovery. 

Western Australia is now 
looking to imports to bridge 
the bad times. The imports are 
tourists. With the pound now 
buying almost AS2.2 there is 
no argument that tourists will 
be financially on top Down 
Under, provided they can first 
find the air fere for travelling 
halfway around the world. 

The predictions for the 
tourist boom are quite ex- 
traordinary. The University of 
Western Australia’s Centre for 
Applied and Business Re- 
search expects 1.26 million 
visitors, spending about AS I 
billion during the October-to- 
February cup race period, with 
146,000 from overseas. These 
figures need to be measured 
against the population of 
Western Australia — only 1.4 


million - and the last overseas 
visitor intake statistics of 
33.000 in 1984. 

Most visitors are expected 
from New South Wales and 
Victoria. With 1,800 miles, 
the Nullarbor Plain and the 
high cost of interstate air feres 
between Perth and the eastern 
seaboard capitals, lens of 
thousands of Australians have 
never seen the west coast 

Why go to the West? Apart 
from the interest of watching 
the world's millionaires race 
their 12-metre yachts in the 
Indian Ocean just off Freman- 
tle. the little port eight miles 


cup may not be retained by 
Western Australia. With an 
initial involvement of 16 syn- 
dicates and copious amounts 
of money being spent to 
defend or win the cup, the 
hyperbole and publicity has 
been enough to swamp the 
average onlooker. 

Suggesting that the cup 
might be lost so' Fremantle 
becomes yet again the little 
town we will never forget, 
Whatsitsnameville, is danger- 
ous for any local writer. But 
that possibility lurks in the 
mind of every developer 
haunted by the spectre of huge 


Australians are starting to look again 
to their history and question the past 


downriver from Perth, visitors 
can observe and maybe even 
join the rich and famous 
spending their leisure hours 
on shore. 

The state government's 
America's Cup office is sug- 
gesting that a carnival atmo- 
sphere will result. Apart from 
the yachting there will be 
plenty of other sports and, for 
those with more cerebral in- 
terests, the Festival of Penh 
should meet most needs. 

February, when the final 
races will be held, is high 
summer in Western Australia, 
with temperatures regularly 
topping 100 degrees Fahren- 
heit (38 degrees Celsius). 

To ease any pain in helping 
the visitors empty their pock- 
ets the federal government has 
spent AS30 million (£13.6 
million) and Western Austra- 
lia close to double that 
amount to spruce up the state 
in readiness for the expected 
influx. 

“Four of Fremantle's 21 
hotels are now on the 
market," said Jeff Brocfcway, 
chairman of the Fremantle 
Real Estate Institute. “Pubs 
have been bought, since the 
cup was won by Bond in 1 983, 
for A$300,000 to A$400,000. 
refurbished and put on the 
market for A$1 million. But it 
is very difficult to sell a pub on 
the basis of what may or may 
not happen." 

The problems faced by in- 
vestors lie in the uncertainty 
of general public interest in 
the America's Cup races and 
the awful possibility that the 


and empty hotels once the 
visitors have gone, which is 
undoubtedly why the biggest 
spender in town is the state 
government housing commis- 
sion, HomeswesL 


According to Stan Parks, 
Homeswest chairman, in the 
past 18 months about A$21 
million dollars has been spent 
on buying and developing 
accommodation — primarily 
for crews, their followers and 
visitors, then to be sold or let 
to West Australians. 


Inevitably there have been 
attempts to exploit the situa- 
tion. For the five-month yacht 
racing period, A$280 a week 
may get you a one-bedroom 
flat, AS 1,500 a week a three- 
bedroom, architect-designed 
house in or near Fremantle. 
Elsewhere in the metropolitan 
area a reasonable flat costs 
about AS 60 a week, a house 
AS 150. 

Apart from the races and 
associated events, what else is 
there to attract the tourist? 
Fremantle is a pleasant and. in 
Australian terms, an historical 
little town, a well-preserved 
slice of 19th-century first set- 
tlement. But to anyone used to 
European history the port will 
prove something of a yawn. 

Penh is attractively situated 
upstream on the Swan River, 
but, blink twice in the central 
business district with its con- 
crete canyons of high-rise steel 
and plate-glass and you could 
be in any modem western city. 

The real interest in Western 
Australia lies in the landscape 
and lifestyle. There are so few 
people living in a state of a 
million square miles and most 
are in and around Perth. The 
climate on the south-west 
coast is Mediterranean. At the 
top it is tropical. In the centre 


is desen. once the testing 
ground for Britain’s 
Bluestreak rocket The envi- 
ronment away from the south- 
west coast is harsh and 
unforgiving.The short history 
of European settlement has 
been viciously cruel to the 
original landowners. There are 
now only about 40,000 Ab- 
origines left in the state after 
the ravages of disease and gun. 
Only now, as Australia ap- 
proaches the bicentenary of 
European settlement in 1988, 
are Australians starting to 
look again to their history and 
question some of the values of 
the past. 

And here lies the problem 
for the West Australian gov- 
ernment. keen to promote its 
attractions of great potential 
and high living with the rich 
and powerful during the 
America's Cup against the 
obvious appeal of a slower, 
easier and more pleasant life- 
style. and the real raw open 
spaces of the outback.

FOCUS 


Farmers wait for a 



lift in the economy 


For more than a decade 
farming in Western Australia 
has been hit by drought and 
recession. Real gross value of 
rural production in the state is 
expected to fall by 23 per cent 
in 1985-86 from the record 
level in 1984-85 — enough, it 
could be expected, to send 
another groan through the 
rural community. 

About 17 million hectares 
of land are cleared for agricul- 
ture on a diverse range of soil 
types which are among the 
oldest in the world. Conse- 
quently. the soils are mostly 
infertile and need superphos- 
phate, trace elements and 
nitrogenous fertilizers. 

Production from the state's 
14.000 fanners is high, ac- 
counting for 19.6 per cent of 
national production in both 
wheat and wool. The figure for 
meat production is 14.9 per 
cent for mutton and lamb and 
9 per cent for beef and veaL 

Horticulture earns more 
than AS 1 60 million (about 
£69 million), with A$45 mil- 
lion coming from fruit and 
more than AS 60 million from 
vegetables. Exports, mostly to 
Singapore, are worth more 
than AS 10 million. 

Viticulture's earnings are 
worth about AS25 million, 
with wine contributing AS 22 


million and ornamental plants 
and flowers about AS30 mil- 
lion. Ten per cent of this 
production is exported. 

So far. the state has yet to 
see the "prophecies of gloom” 
come true — farmers in their 
hundreds walking off the land. 
Economists remain steadfast 
in their forecasts and farmers 
remain steadfast in their faith 
in the land. 


In the north of the state, 
there is renewed enthusiasm 
for the giant Ord river scheme 
and research is under way to 


several of the world's biggest 
wheat firms - up to 75JXX) 
hectares (about 1 85,000 acres) 
planted on a single firm - 
research and development has 
become a high priority in the 
drive for increased cropping 
yields and improved plant 
varieties. New management 
techniques are paying divi- 
dends as farmers learn more of 
the interplay between soil, 
crops and machinery.

Computers 
are now 
used to 
monitor 
cultivation 


establish marketable crops, 
such as rice, peanuts, sugar 
and many kinds of fruit and 
vegetable. Israeli farmers are 
establishing themselves on 
huge tracts of land and are 
using the dry firming tech- 
niques which have been so 
successful in their own coun- 
try of origin. Beef farmers in 
the Pilbara are generally opti- 
mistic about the future of their 
industry. 

In the cereal growing areas 
of the state, which boasts 


tion of new crop rotations 
such as whea t/I upi ns/barley to 
replace the year-in, year-out 
monoculture. Reduced culti- 
vation, commonly referred to 
as minimum tillage or conser- 
vation firming, is spreading 
rapidly- It involves the use of 
chemicals for weed control 
and less use of machinery to 
maintain soil structure; only 
about 30 per cent of the land 
cleared for firming can be 
regarded as stable. 

A planting revolution in- 
volving the use of air seeders 
started in the state in 1 978 and 
has grown in sophistication. 
Today computers are used to 
monitor seeding rales and to 
warn the firmer about mal- 
functioning machinery. Elec- 
tronics is very much to the 
fore and much of the equip- 






ment has been developed in 
the state. 

Chemicals are an integral 
pan. of the new “new age" 
firming and again the state 
has its share of pioneers, 
particularly in low volume 
spraying. 

In east Australia, water rates 
still lop the 100 litres to one 
hectare mark. Spray boom 


widths average 1 8 metres with 
the biggest so far produced 
measuring 31 metres. 

Electronics also play an 
important role m chemical 
spraying. Monitors show an 
operator the precise amount 
being sprayed, the area cov- 
ered, the volume of spray left 
and the volume of spray 
needed to complete the -area 


From now on.

Grain mo Hit tain; Large 
world stocks mean 
depressed prospects for 
the state's producers 
on overseas markets 


dialled into the computer. 

Western Australia's animal 
industries gross nearly ASl 
billion, with about A$390 
million from livestock 
slaughterings and AS586 mil- 
lion from livestock products. 
The state's rural land values 
have bottomed out and an 
upward swing is expected in 
September-October this year. 


The outlook for firming in 
1986 is mixed. Prospects for 
the livestock industries of 
wool, sheepmeat, beef and 
pigmeat are reasonable but 
wheat, coarse grains and dairy 
industries face depressed pros- 
pects on overseas markets. 
This is mainly due. in the 
medium term, to large world 
stocks. Aggregate firm costs 
(credit firm labour, fertiliz- 
ers. fuel machinery and 
chemicals) are expected to 
increase by about 7 per cent 
The average price paid by 
producers for fuel is forecast 
to decline, while those for 
most other firm inputs are 
expected to rise: In 1985 
aggregate firm costs increased 


by 7.5 per cenL This increase 
was higher than the 1984 
increase of 5.5 per cent and 
largely reflected the impact of 
the devaluation of the Austra- 
lian dollar in the first half of 
1985 on the price of fuel, 
fertilizers, chemicals and 
credit. 

A large fill in gram produc- 
tion, and hence in the value of 
grain output, is the major 
factor underlying the expected 
16 per cent fill, to A5Z189 
million, in the gross value of 
Western Australia's agricul- 
tural production in 1985-86. 
The firm cost-price squeeze 
will continue to intensify in 

1985- 86 and 1986-87, placing 
further pressure on firm 
incomes. 

The real gross value of 
agricultural production — 
which is a measure of the 
purchasing power of total 
production in' terms of the 
quantity of inputs it would 
buy - is also forecasi to fill by 
23 per cent in 1985-86, to 
A$ 1,459 million, the lowest 
since 1977-78. The forecasi for 

1986- 87 shows a slight rise in 
the nominal gross value of 
agricultural production to 
AS2.23I million, due to a rise 

- in the value of wool, but the 
real gross value is expected to 
fill to AS1.369 million. 

After a generally good sea- 
son in Western Australia in 
1984. and record grain pro- 
duction in 1984-85. the L98S 
season was at best “average" 
and areas sown to wheat, 
barley and oats in 1985-86 
were down on the areas sown 
in 1984-85.

Western Australia is throwing 
itself into the race to develop 
new and better technologies 
with all the gusto of a 19th 
century gold rush. Business 
and political leaders hope this 
surge of corporate ami re- 
search activity in technology 
will have some of the same 
economic spin-offs as the peri- 
odic waves of goldmining. 

The state government is 
encouraging technology devel- 
opment by providing financial 
assistance, cheap land or 
premises and business and 
marketing advice. The govern- 
ment is also poshing the 
benefits of Information tech- 
nology in its own public serice 
and is putting more computers 
in school classrooms. 

The mission has become a 
virtual obsession for Mai 
Bryce, Deputy Premier and 
technology minister, who has 
had to battle against the 
sceptics and the “tonnage" 
mentality towards economic 
progress. 

“All that was good for 
Western Australia tended to 
be measured in terms of 
millions of tonnes of product 
shipped and billions of dollars 
invested," Mr Bryce lamented. 
“The idea of technology, 
pnrticnlary the high value- 
added, small volume type, was 
regarded as something alien to 
the general thrust of economic 
development in Western 
Australia.** 

Luckily, Western Australia 
has a relatively high degree of 
innovation and entrepreneur* 

ship for such a small popula- 
tion. Government and private 
sources of seed capital have 
mushroomed and Perth inves- 
tors have eagerly backed a 
range of technology start-ups. 
The willingness to take a pant 
probably explains local 
investors' support for no less 
than half a dozen engine- 
related technologies. 

The most celebrated is star 
stock market performer 
Sanch Technologies Trust, 
which has just signed an 
agreement with the Outboard 
Marine Corporation of Illinois 
for the development of fuel 
injection technologies. The 
fact system is a spin-off of an 
orbital engine invented by 
Ralph Sarich in the late 1960s. 

• Sarich's determination to. 
succeed in such a difficult 
sector — the automotive indus- 
try — has earned - him the 


technology proponents. But 
the Sarich approach is some- 
thing of a dilemma for the 
state government. The Sarich 
technologies will be manufac- 
tured under licence in overseas 
plants. The main benefit for 
Western Australia will be a 
stream of royalties and licence 
fees. 

Barrack Technology Ltd, 
which is developing a fad 
combustion process, hak gone 
one step further by camping on 
the doorstep of its potential 
market. Last year Barrack 
shifted its entire research and 
development team to a high- 
tech centre in Boston. Western 
Australia's lack of a manufac- 
turing base and its remoteness 
from many of the major mar- 
kets is a big problem for a job 
conscious state government 

About 97 per cent of West- 
ern Australia’s 75,000 busi- 
nesses are classified as small 
and few have significant man- 
ufacturing capability. Stock 
broker Ray Porter of Ray 
Porter and Partners Pty Ltd 
says the characteristics of the 
Western Australian entrepre- 
neur suggest some successes 
will emerge from *hk flurry of 
endeavour. 


So what are the chances of 
success and what technologies 
are likely to be winners? It is 
still too early to predict. A

Burford is one of the most charming of 
the Cotswolds towns. As a small raedi- 
1 eval town, it built its prosperity on the 
; wool trade, as a number of merchants' 

, houses remaining from the 1 4th to the 
16th centuries testifies, and continued 
through the ISlh century happDy with 
the coaching trade. 

When in 1812 the London road was 
diverted to the south, Burfbrcfs growth 
ended, and it was 100 years later that the 
“cult of picturesque Burford”, as Sir 
Nikolaus Pevsner described it, began 
with the restoration of The Priory and 
other houses. 

Now Burford is in great demand again, 
along with property throughout the 
Cotswold, but the town has only one 
estate agent, Hampton and Sons, which 
is heavily outnumbered by antique 
shops. Hamptons moved to Burford four 
months ago, taking over the business of 
Mosryns, and working with Sir Jeremy 
Mostyn. 

John Baker of Hamptons says there is 
an extreme shortage of prime period 
property in the area and the firm has 
over 300 firm inquiries for properties 
that are simply not coming to the 
market. Most prospective buyers are 
seeking land, but requirements vary. 
Inevitably, the London and south-east 
influence is being felt with pressure to 
move into the area for both main and 
second homes. 



Country house in the town: the Manor House, Chipping Norton, dating back tb" 
die 14th century, which is for sale at about £225,000 
Property is scarce within Burford, but Hamptons and Taylor and Fletcher.of 


os the outskirts Hamptons are selling a 
19th-century farmhouse suitable for 
improvement It stands in a fine rural 
position with about half a mile of 
frontage to the River Windrush, gardens 
of an acre and eight acres of pasture. 
Accommodation consists of three recep- 
tion rooms, two kitchens, five bedrooms 
and a dairy, and there are several 
outbuildings. Because oflts situation and 
potential the property, Springfield 
House in Witney Street, is to be 
auctioned on July 30, with a guide price 
of £140.000. 


At Chipping Norton, the Manor 
ouse is for sale. This listed bouse has 


Large garden plus 
acres of pasture 


Mr Baker adds: “People want period, 
detached, secluded but not isolated 
houses. They want cottages with a 40ft 
drawing room, and there are none. They 
have a dear view of what they want, but 
often do not realize that their require- 
ments cannot be satisfied within one 
properly.” 

Four out of five inquiries come from 
outside the area, mostly British, with a 
few Hong Kong expatriates, from Scan- 
dinavians and occasionally Americans 
who want a four or fifth house. “And."* 
he adds, “we are selling £100.000 to 
£200,000 homes to London businessmen 
as summer homes for the family.'* 

These trends become apparent to 
keen-eyed observers mid-way through 
Friday afternoons when the sort of car 
entering the top of the high street from 
the London direction becomes predomi- 
narnly the executive model. 


House is for sale. This listed bouse has 
evidence of its 14th-century origins but 
mostly dates from later. Built of Cots- 
wold stone, the house has stone mul- 
lioned windows with leaded lights and 
fine early oak panelling. It is set in 1% 
acres of wooded grounds which include a 
swimming pool mid open up views of the 
Cotswold countryside. It has three 
reception rooms and six or seven 
bedrooms, with three bathrooms and a 
studio at present used for picture- 
framing. 


Chipping Norton are giving a guide price 
of £250.000. - „ ^ • 

Four miles south of Burford is FUkins, , 
where Filkins Hall a Cotswold- stone 
manor built in the 1930s, is being 
converted to 10 apartments. They me 
spacious, and each has two bedrooms, 
two bathrooms and one reception room, 
with two car-parking spaces. The yiews 
are splendid, there are communal. gar- 
dens including a tennis court, and John 
Baker says the apartments will be 
“eminently suitable" for a small family 
seeking weekends in the area. A slight 
snag is that the peace is occasionally 
shattered "by aircraft from Upper 
Heyford. The apartments are priced at 
between £89.500 and £99,500.. . 


Coach house to 
be redeveloped 


With the house is an art gallery, built 
and operated by the present owners, and 
a bungalow, both of which are to be sold 
as one lot, offered at about £90,000. The 
house, to be sold separately, is unusual in 
t ha t it is really a country house, but in a 
town. Hamptons are asking £225,000. 

At Heythrop, approached through the 
grounds of the National Westminster 
Bank staff college, Heythrop House, is 
Westwood, a small stone country house 
set in nearly 25 acres of gardens, 
pastures, paddocks and woodlands. The 
bouse, built in 1874, has four bedrooms 
and two reception rooms, and there are 
outbuildings suitable for stabling, as well 
as a small two-bedroom cottage. The 
house is sheltered and secluded, but not 
isolated (thus fulfilling requirements). 


A coach house within the grounds; j& ‘ 
also to be redeveloped into three hoB|gs; 
and a dovecote has planning perm&ac% : 
for conversion into a house. These, are' , 
likely to come on to the marks! in,-’ 
September. . ^ 

As communications improve, sojdow 
the pressure for property. Ian Stilling, 
from Lane Fox and Partners' Banbury 7 
office, believes this is the first year that- 
the new M40 motorway, promised far so- 1 
long, has become a factor, and is helping, 
to push the pressure still further. By 
1989, he says, it will have readied: ' 
Banbury. 

The prices to be commanded are 
illustrated by the sale of the Old 
Prebendal House, at Shipton-under- 
Wychwood, near Burford which the 
firm put on the market at around •. 
£400,000. The house, dating from the 
medieval period, with four reception, 
rooms, six bedrooms, a flat and cottage. .. 
with outbuildings and four acres, sold 
quickly.

Eyot Wood is an Edwardian count 
Thames, with a panelled riverside 


house at Lower Shiplake, near Henley-on- 
rawing room, standing in an acre and with 


180ft Thames frontage and deep mooring, for which A. C. Frost and Co are 

asking £675,000 

Up-river delights 



Counting counties 

■ Cranmore lower, Cranmore, 
above, stands high on the Mendfp Hills 
nearShepton Maflet, Somerset a folly 
with views over six counties. Designed by 
Thomas Wyatt it was built in about 
1862, . 

it was the venue for shooting parties 
arid picnics and stands in more than five 
acres of garden and woodand. The .- 
tower is about 150ft high, with 182 steps 
and the singlo-floor house at its base 
has a big receptioa roam and five 
bedrooms. The present owners 
restored the property to provide the 
accommodation, and Jaokson-Stops 
and Staffs Yeovil office is asking 
£180.000.’. • 


Riverside property always attracts high 
prices, and is estimated to have a 
premium of one quarter to a third 
because of its position. 

A. C. Frost and Co. were the first 
agents to start a specialist department to 
handle this distinctive market sector, 
aided by the fact that 13 of their offices 
are on Thames-side, and in the two years 
of its existence it has handled the sale of 
. £80 million worth of properties on the 
50-mile stretch of the Thames from 
Richmond to Reading and beyond. 

They estimate the total market value 
of riverside homes between Richmond 
and Watlington in Oxfordshire at £500 
million ana say that price increases in 
the last year have been 25 per cenL 
4 Jon Dempsey, who manages the 
riverside centre based at Windsor, 
believes that improved communications 
and increased leisure time, combined 
with the scarcity of riverside property, 
has caused changes in prices along the 
.Thames. 

A year ago, there was a disparity in 
prices between Kingston, Staines and 
Maidenhead. Now a two-bedroom flat in 
any of these areas will cost a similar 
price, from £80,000 to £100,000. 

It appears that riverside buyers are 
very flexible in their demands for 
location, asking, for example, for a flat 
anywhere between Teddington and 
Staines — so long as it is on the river. 
Someone with £150,000 to spend will as 
easily buy a bungalow in Sheppenon or 
Bourne End. 

That prices have increased greatly is 
shown by examples handled by A. C 
frost They say the market value for a 
one-bedroom flat with river views at 
Teddington has increased from £45.000 
in June 1984 to £70,000; a three- 
bedroom town house with mooring at 
Eton, --Windsor, from £125.000 to ; 
£195,000; and a four-bedroom, detached 


house with direct frontage, from 
£250,000 to £350,000. 

Mr Dempsey points out that new 
properties on the Thames are in ever- 
shorter supply because of a scarcity of 
development land by the river, partly 
because of industrial use and partly 
because of restrictions in areas within the 
flood plain and green-belt areas further 
upstream. 

He says: “It is right to maintain the 
high standards of conservation to protect 
what is one of our most important areas 
of national beauty but there is room for 
limited development through the process 
of renewal of unused derelict land." 

Frosts expect prices to continue to rise. 
Now that the Arm has been acquired by 
the Prudential's property arm, it is likely 
to expand nationally in search of 
riverside properties. Looking towards 
London Docklands, Frosts predict that 
the area will price itself out of the 
competitive market, a trend delectable in 
London's West End. at which point the 
push west along the Thames Valley will 
gain further momentum. 

Competitive pricing or not. Frosts are 
selling The Temple at Goring-on- 
Thames, Oxfordshire, which they de- 
scribe as the finest contemporary 
residence on the river, standing in about 
six acres, with a swimming pooL, and 450 
yards of Thames frontage. 

The house has a guest cottage or staff 
annexe and it is on offer at about’ 
£750.000. At Bourne End. Riversdale 
House is for sale as a whole or in three 
lots. The main house, built at the turn of 
the century, has five reception rooms 
and eight bedrooms, with a boat house, 
and is for sale at about £600,000; the 
four-bedroom Brook house at about 
£300.000; and the White Cottage, with 
three bedrooms, at about £1 10.000.

YACHTING: RULES ON AMATEURISM HAVE BECOME INCREASINGLY POROUS 


Intention to use privileged 
documents is no defence 


Braced for winds of change 


Goddard and Another v Na- 
tionwide Building Society 
Before Lord Justice May and 
Lord Justice Nourse 
[Judgment given June 27] 

Although a litigant might use 
as secondary evidence in litiga- 
tion copies of documents in his 
possession to which legal pro- 
fessional privilege attached, 
where the copies had not yet 
been so used the mere fact that 
he intended so to use them was 
no answer to a claim by the 
person in whom the privilege 
was vested for delivery up of the 
copies or for an injunction 
restraining the disclosure or any 
use of any information con- 
tained in them. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in a reserved judgment, allowing 
an appeal by the plaintiffs. Mr 
David John Goddard and Miss

Justice Hoilings who on July 16, 
1985 had dismissed their

relying in any manner in the 
action on the note and requiring 
it to deliver up to them the note 
and any further copies of it 
which it might have made.

an international jury at this year’s 12-

In the United States, where yachting's 
hierarchy has long held the line against 
any commercialism, proposed tax law 
changes to disallow writeoffs on boats 
and contributions to charities such as an 
America's Cup syndicate, has led to a 
-sudden change in attitude. A strong 
lobby now exists in favour of opening 
ihe sport to commercialism and dele- 
gates are expected to call for the 
removal of all rules limiting profession- 
alism and sponsorship at the Interna- 
tional Yacht Raring Union's conference 
in London in November. 

In Britain, however, tradition contin- 
ues to hold a heavy hand on the helm. 
Pressure from small sailing nations, 
such as New Zealand, to allow sponsors' 
names on yachts to offset the cost of 
shipping boats halfway round the world 
to compete in events such as the 
AdmiraTs Cup has forced the Royal 
Ocean Raring Club to organize an open 
division in their races this year. But the 
opening is so restricted- that few 
sponsors are likley to be attracted. 
Indeed, crews who race under a 
commercial banner are treated little 
better than lepers, unable to compete for 
the principal silverware. Currently, only 
one company, Decosol. has chosen to 


test the water and for the moment their 
three-quarter ton Cup challenger must 
race alone. 

There is a similar reticence among 
many commercial sponsors to back 


many commercial sponsors m *»*■» 
yachting events. Carisberg, however, are 
well pleased with their partnership with 
the Royal Western Yacht Club during 
this year’s Transatlantic race, and plan 
to support the dub’s next single-handed 
race at Newport in two years’ time. This 
set-up, however, is far removed from 
the general “pay-up and shut-up 
attitude taken by other race organiza- 
tions who undermine the sport s ability 
to provide value for money, according 
to one promoter. 


SPORTS 
COMMENTARY 



David Miller 


From the Sandhurst Group, sponsors 
to Cowes Week, the country’s largest 
regatta, there are rumblings. Brian 
Hume. Sandhurst’s chairman, is under- 
standably aggrieved that they have been 
given a bade seat in the organization of 
the week and have now learned that Uie 
Cowes Combined Clubs Committee has 
signed up a second sponsorship with 
British Telecom — Sandhurst’s direct 
rival in the cellular radio telephone 
business — to host the Press. He says 
that unless race organizers can display 
more commercial sense, then the list of 
sponsors lost to ihe sport will begin to 
look like the Yellow Pages.

made a further distinction be- bring the.r document into coiui 


LORD JUSTICE MAY said 
that the plaintiffs had argued, on 
the basis of Lord AsWrurton v 
Pape ([1913] Ch 469), that, 
where a solicitor breached his 
fiduciary duty to his client in 
respect of a privileged commu- 
nication. any person coming 
into possession of that commu- 
nication. or of a document or 
copy document setting it out, 
could be restrained from mak- 
ing any use of the communica- 
tion or of any such documents 
and could be ordered to return 
them to the dienL 


The defendant, relying on 
Caicrafi v Guest ([1 8 981 1 QB 
759). had contended that, al- 
though a communication was 
privileged, if a document 
evidencing it came into the 
hands of a third party, by 
whatever means, the third party 
was entitled to use that docu- 
ment as evidence in litigation 
between himself and the person 
entitled to the privilege. 

The ratio of the Ashburton 
decision was that die court was 
concerned to protect the 
confidential nature of letters 


tween most criminal and all 
civil proceedings. 

In view of the confusion 
which the existing authorities 
had caused and were liable to 
continue to cause, seven points 
should be made: 

1 Proceedings in which the 
Caicrafi rule would deny protec- 
tion to the confidential commu- 
nication were not proceedings 
the purpose of which was to seek 
that protection. A party who 
desired such protection had to 
seek it before the other party 
adduced the confidential 
communication in evidence or 
otherwise relied on it in bis 
conduct of the proceedings. 

2 Although the equitable juris- 
diction was of much wider* 
application, it could prevail 
over the Caicrafi rule of ev- 
idence only in cases where 
privilege could be claimed. Al- 
though the equitable jurisdic- 
tion extended to ail confidential 
communications, equity would 
not restrain a litigant who 
already had a record of such a 
communication to which privi- 
lege in legal proceedings did not 
attach from using it for the 
purposes of his litigation. Equity 
followed the law and it could not 
be its function to accord a de 


without fear of their being 
filched by their opponents and 
then used in evidence, required 
an exception to the Caicrafi rule, 
save in regard to documents at 
which the opponent had already 
looked. 


6 The distinction between civil 
proceedings and public prosecu- 
tions made in Butler and 
adopted and applied in R »• 
Tompkins ((1977) 67 Cr App R 
181) was also made on the 
ground of public policy. 


7 It was to be noted that the 
New Zealand Court of Appeal, 
having considered Caicrafi. But- 
ler ana Tompkins, declined in R 
v Uljee ([ 1 982] 1 NZLR 561) to 
apply the rule of evidence in a 
criminal case, holding that ev- 
idence of an overheard lawful, 
privileged conversation between 
an accused and his solicitor was 
not admissible. The practical 
result of that was to leave the 
spirit of .Ashburton supreme in 
both civil and criminal proceed- 
ings in New Zealand, a suprem- 
acy for which there was much to 
be said.

Particulars of foreign assets 
need not be disclosed 


Ashtianf v Kashi 
Before Lord Justice Dillon, 
Lord Justice Neill and Lord 
Justice Nicholls 
[Judgment given June 25] 

An order for discovery made 
in support of a Mama injunc- 
tion should be limited to a 
defendant's English assets. The 
defendant should not be made 
to disclose particulars of his 
foreign assets. 

If in a proper case there were 
special grounds for requiring the 
defendant to do so. the plaintiff 
should be required to give an 
undertaking not to use the 
disclosed information without 
the defendant's consent or the 
leave of the court. 

The Court of Appeal so staled 
dismissing an appeal by the 
plaintiffs. Mr Esmaeel Ashtiani 
and Mr Majid Kashi, from the 
decision of Sir Neil Lawson 
sitting as a High Court judge on 
May 22, 1986. The judge bad 
discharged a Mareva order 
made by Mr Justice Hirst on 
April 23. 1986. 

Mr James Goudie. QC and 
Mr Alastair MacGregor for the 
plaintiffs. Mr Anthony Thomp- 
son. QC and Miss Hilary Heil- 
bron for the defendant, Mr 
Habib Kashi. 


brought proceedings in the 
courts of those countries and 
obtained orders freezing the 
defendant's disclosed assets. 

The defendant applied to 
discharge the order made by Mr 
Justice Hirst. That application 
was heard by Sir Neil Lawson 
who discharged the order on an 
undertaking by the defendant 
not to dispose or in any manner 
deal with Fallacies without 
prior notice to the plaintiffs. 

On the appeal the plaintiffs 
contended that Mr Justice 
Hirst's order should be restored 
to support the foreign orders. 
Conversely, the defendant ar- 


gued that discovery of the 
Foreign assets should not have 


foreign assets should not have 
been ordered in the first place; 
that it was an abuse of process 


ing his only substantial English 
asset because the effect would be 
to enable the plaintiffs to attach 
overseas assets. 

In his Lordship's judgment 
there were valid reasons why the 
Mareva order should be limited 
to the defendant’s assets within 
the jurisdiction of the court. 

1 It could be oppressive for the 
defendant to have his foreign 
assets frozen as a result of an 
order of the English court. 

2 It would be difficult for an 
English court to control or 
police the enforement of 
proceedings in other 
jurisdictions. 

3 As Lord Roskill pointed out in 



Real test is yet to 
come for Britons 


It would be clutching at straws 
to read too much into last 
Sunday's overseas final suc- 
cesses by British riders, hearten- 
ing though they were. Jeremy 
Doncaster, Neil Evins, Chris 
Morton. Marvyn Cox and Kel- 
vin Tatum pumped air into the 
sagging tyres of British con- 
fidence by qualifying for the 
Inter Continental final at Brad- 
ford. but the real crunch is yet to 
come. 

Seven Nordic finalists win 
join the nine overseas qualifiers 
on July 20, and on current form, 
the threat is clear and explicit 
Eleven riders will go through to 
the world final at Katowice in 
August. 

If the Danes yet again sweep 
all before them at Bradford, only 
four places remain to be dis- 
puted by five British riders, two 
Americans, an Australian and a 
New Zealander. 

At the risk of being dabbed a 
little Englander, or Job's com- 
forter, I must remind optimists 
that at this same stage of the 
world individual-championship 
last year, there were still five 
British riders in the Inter Conti- 
nental round. Only Kelvin Ta- 
tum survived, with John Davis, 
.Andy Smith, the late Kenny 
Carter and Phil Collins felling 
by the wayside at Vetlanda. 

Still, there is everything to 


SPEEDWAY 

Keith Mackfin A 


ride for, and the only real pity 
about last Sunday's event is that 
the British contingent could not 
produce the overseas champion: 

Sam Erroolenko, 

Wolverhampton's popular 
American extrovert, took the 
crown with just one defeat and 
14 points. There was rotten luck 
for fellow countryman, Shawn 
Moran, who bravely chose to 
ride with a casing on his injured 
ankle, crashed, broke the ankle 
again and was taken to hospital 
1 with concussion. 

Bad luck, too, for young Paul 
Thorp, the only National 
League rider left in -the com- 
petition. Paul had jumped imo 
the lead in the race in which 
Moran crashed, but missed out 
on the re-run. 


While British riders contem- 
plate their temporary decline, 
there is also food for thought in 
the current eclipse of the Ameri- 
cans. In the only 1980s Bruce 
Penhall and the top United 
States riders were the dominant 
force on the speedway scene in 
Britain. Now, they too watch the 
ruthless Danes take over. 


Mexico Gty - 
An insult to the intelligence 
of die leading players and 
managers, without parallel in 
sport for its amrance, has 
been delivered .at the conclu- 
sion of the World Cop by Josfo 
Havelanee, the president of 
FIF-C wnose lack of sensitiv- 
ity has earned him the : nick- 
name locally of Heavylunge. 

The news sheet which has 
been produced throughout the 
competition by ISL Market- 
ing, the co-ordinator of the 
sponsors, carried a “Message 
for Mexico" from Havelange 
which defies belief. It ts 
shaming that reasonable men 
such as Bert MiUkhip, the 
chairman of the FA and a 
member' of the orga n i zing 
committee here, and Jacques 
Georges, the president of 
UEFA, should tolerate such a 
leader. 

The message seeks to de- 
fend the indefensible: inade- 
quate refereeing, a mis-shapen 
first round, the lottery of 
penalty shoot-outs. In at- 
tempting to do so, Havelange 
accuses teams of undermining 
referees and of being profes- 
sionally incompetent. He 
rlamtc (he regulations of the 
competition “are perfect”, ami 
implies that the penalty shoot- 
outs have existed as long as 
the laws of the.game, which is 
laughable; 

The referees were excellent, 
he says, and -losers who could 
not accept their failings 
blamed the referees. Neither 
statement is trne- Some refer- 
ees were excellent, to be sore. 
Yet some teams and managers, 
with more experience of the 
game than this president; 
merely had the audacity to 
point out when a bad perfor- 
mance by a referee was no 
more or less than .a bad 
performance.

information without the court’s ? litigant to give discovery 


leave or the plaintiffs' consent to 
start proceedings in other juris- 
dictions. 

Mr Justice Hoffmann in 
Bayer r If 'inter (No 3) (The 
Times March 24, 1986) said that 
if there were adequate funds in 
England to meet the plaintiffs 


involved an invasion of privacy. 
Those comments applied with 
full force to an order requiring 
an ' individual to disclose 
particulars of all his assets.

By Philip Ntcksan 


LORD JUSTICE DILLON 
said that the parties were Ira- 
nians. On an ex pane applica- 
tion by the plaintiffs Mr justice 
Hirst had granted a Mareva 
injunction restraining the defen- 
dant from removing his English 
assets or otherwise disposing of 
them.He had also ordered the 
defendant to disclose particulars 
of the value, nature and where- 
abouts of his assets within and 
ouiside the jurisdiction. 

An affidavit sworn by the 
defendant disclosed only one 
substantial asset in the jurisdic- 
tion. a leasehold property. 
Fairacres. valued at £150.000. 
The affidavit also disclosed 
substantial funds in Guernsey. 
Brussels and Luxembourg. The 
effect of the disclosure of those 
assets was that the plaintiffs 


look for assets abroad. Bui if the 
English funds were inadequate, 
the plaintiffs might have to 
resort to foreign assets, particu- 
larly in countries where an 
English judgment would be 
enforced. 

The underlying policy of the 
Mareva injunction suggested 
that the English court should 
assist the plaintiff to take steps 
to prevent the defendant from 
disposing of his foreign assets as 
well. 

If there was evidence that a 
foreign court would be willing to 
make orders similar in effect to a 
Mareva injunction upon assets 
within its jurisdiction, the En- 
glish court should not restrict a 
plaintiff's ability lo obtain such 
relief. 

The contrary view was ex- 
pressed by Sir Neil Lawson in 
his judgment in the present case. 
He said that it was no longer 
right to uphold the Mareva 
order. the defendant having 
given the undertaking concern- 


order for disclosure of foreign 
assets led to the plaintiff obtain- 
ing attachment of the 
defendant's assets in foreign 
jurisdictions, it might have the 
effect of giving the plaintiff 
much greater security than the 
Mareva injunction gave him 
over ihe defendant's English 
assets.

locked in the final of the British 
judo championships on Sat-

A galaxy of rugby talent will 
assemble at RavenhilL Belfast, 
on August 30 when an inter- 
national XV wifi play Ulster in a 
match in aid of the Ken Mc- 
Cormack appeal (George Ace 
writes). 

Trevor Ringland, the British 
Lions and Ireland wing, has 
already received replies in the 
affirmative from Jonathan Da- 


vies. John Devereux and Robert 
Norster, of Wales; from Nigel 
Melville and Wade Dooley, of

France and Scotland will also be

The Ulster side will be built 
around their international 
contingent of Ringland, Philip 
Matthews, now folly recovered 


from his elbow injury, Nigel I 
Carr, Keith Crossan, Willie i 
Anderson, Jim McCoy and John 
Hewitt. 

McCormack, a former

sustained severe injuries to his 
neck and spine last October 
which have left him paralysed 


second place m the light middle- 
weight category of ihe English 
team to compete in the 
Commonwealth Games from 
July 28. 

The decision was taken yes- 
terday by the team manager, 
Arthur Mapp, shortly before 
announcing the squad, which 
also confirmed the selection of 
London's Ray Stevens in the 
second place of tbe middle- 
weight category. 

"Sheals paid the penalty for 
one mistake, but I am confident 
he will not repeal it in the 
Commonwealth Games." Mapp 
said. 

It is clear that no single 
country will benefit more than 
England from the new ruling 
that two fighters' can be entered 
in each weight category instead 
of the original one. “Without 

wanting to sound excessively 
Optimistic I expect to see 
English players in each of the 
seven finals in the men’s event, 
and it would not surprise me if 
we . come back .with six gold 
medals or more." Mapp said. 

He has juggled around with 
the weight categories to provide 
formidable opposition, even for 
those Commonwealth countries 


FOR THE RECORD 


His Lordship would hold that 
the order for disclosure of 
foreign assets should not have 
been made and agreed with Sir 
Neil Lawson that the Mareva 
order should be discharged. 

If in the future disclosure of 
foreign assets in a proper case 
was ordered on special grounds, 
the plaintiff should be required 
to give an undertaking not to use 
the disclosed information with, 
out the consent of the defendant 
or the leave of the court

Justice Nicholls agreed.

The accusation that “those 
teams who lost on penalties 
lost because of a lack of proper 
preparation** is absurd. The 
penalty shoot-out is criticized 
_by almost every manager, 
'whether of not involved in 
such regrettable conclnsions to 
matches, whether or not a 
winner or loser: Santana, Mi- 
chel, Mufloz, Thys. In my 
opinion such men know more 
abont . football ' than 
Havelange, an ex-water polo 
player, ever will. Munoz was 
captain of die most noble of 
Real Madrid teams, and then 
their manager, a man of 
dignity. The sboot-ont was 
devised by FIFA to maintain 
commercial schedules. It has 
nothing to do with footialL If 
losing on penalties is an 
indiaitioa of inadequate prep- 
aration, then presumably un- 
der Havelange'^ definition, 
properly prepared teams 
would continue scoring penal- 
ties side by side without error 
all night: thereby frustrating 
the procedure of tennination- 
by-lottery which Havelange 
himself has approved. 

“The fault lies," he says 
“not with the laws or roles faint 
with the preparation and pro- 
fessional conscience of those 
directly involved." 

What greater dedication to 
their game could have been 
exhibited by Brazil and France 
in one of the most memorable 
matches played in tbe history 
of the game, only to be thrown 
in their state of total exhaus- 
tion Into the irrelevance of 
penalties. Havelange states 
that Brazil had no right to 
consider themselves potential 
world champions. He should 
torn his reflection upon 
himself.

saying that he riiinbi the

While Hello Emani’s hard-

reward for previous consistent

- Courage Is a word sports 
writers use too lightly these 
days. It applies, though, to one 
of Wimbledon's unsung heroes. 

Kelly Evemden, of New Zea- 
land. who lost his battle yes-t 
terday for a place' In the then's 
doubles quarter-finals, “died’’ 
twice in 1978 and possesses only 
one long. The other was removed 
alter he was knocked down by a 
car as a 16-year-old. The carls 
wing mirror is believed to have 
ripped through his chest, break- 
ing all his ribs and tearing his 
long In half. An arm and a leg 
was also broken and be was left 
in a coma for five days. His heart 
stopped for almost two minutes 
white he lay on the roadside, and 
tor another minute in hospital, 
where be spent six months 
recovering. 

Eight years later, he has been 

seeking a place on Wimbledon's 
centre court. Sadly, the ambition 
still thwarts him, but not for 
want of trying. Yesterday, 
partnered by Chip Hooper, of 
the United States, he took the 
No. 10 seeds — Sanchez and 
Casal, of Spain — to Gve sets, in 
a match lasting five hoars m. 
debilitating beat. Haring taken 
the first two sets, the nnseeded 
pair looked to be on their way to 
victory, only to lose the next set 
in a tie-break, before eventually 
going down 8-10 in the last. The 
final score, 3-6, 4-6, 7-6, 6-4, 10-'. 
8 . 

Still, Evemden, aged 24, has 
the consolation of haring taken 
two sets ui the singles last week 
off the eighth seed, Joakim 
Nystrom. Last December he- 
reacbed the finals of a grand 
prix tournament in Sydney. And 
earlier this year the New 'Zea- 
lander, now his country's No. 1 
after the decline of Chris Lewis, 
emerged rictorions from a five-

heroes. A leading British lung special- 

sw Zea- .ist. Dr Stewart Clarke, an ex- 
ile yes-f. comity squash player, says he is 
c men's ‘’pretty amazed" that a one- 

“died" lunged person can play pro- 
ses only fessumal tennis. Expansion aim

, break- Evemden attributes his reco®- 
rmg his ery, and his later tennis success, 
id a teg to. bis “mental attitude” and a 


others say is impossible. He 
describes himself as a “free 
spirit”, and derives pleasure 
from careering down steep hills 
on a skateboard, or leaping into 
water off towering cliffs, the 
highest measured exploit being 
some 100 feet up. That, be 
admits, terrified him. 

“I hope my reckless streak 

will never leave me. That's bow I 
play tennis too. 1 don't intend to 
change my make-up just because 
of what's happened to me in the 
past” 

Like many lesser-known play- 
ers be finds life on the circuit 
which he joined only last year, 
has. its ops and downs. “The 
grind gets to yon, you get so 
lonely, especially if yoo’re in- 
jured or playing badly." He 
knows that losing a match 
means he can earn no more for al 
least a week. 

Everaden's main asset on 
court is his speed, together with 
the generation of a surprising 
amount of power from his slim, 
yet sturdy 5ft 9in frame. Al- 
though be believes he has the 
potential to get into the world's 
lop 10, be donbts if is sir^le- 
minded enough. “If the world 
abolished- tennis tomorrow I 
wouldn't be shattered,” be said.

WARWICK: 7-40 Tom s Uttfe Bet S.10 


England, who finished last a 
year ago. must beat Scotland, 
the holders, at Sophia Gardens, 
Cardiff, diis morning 10 win the 
British women's international 
series. In hot conditions yes- 
terday they beat Ireland by 132 
shots to 90. 

England recast Margaret Dog- 
geu's rink after the narrow 
victory oyer Wales on Monday. 
They dropped Bernice Trafford 
and Pam Gill, brought back 
Chris Wessier as skip, made Mrs 
Doggen No. 2 and enlisted June 
Searic . at lead. . Madeleine 
Gooding continued at No: 3. 
Ireland, having beaten Scotland. 

were unchanged. 

Mrs Wessier expressed her 
gratitude by guiding her com- 
panions to a -24-14 win over 
Marie. Barber. Two other En- 
gland rinks — (hose of Enid 


By Gordon Allan 

Fairhall and Mavis Steele - also 
won by 10 shots. Ireland lacked 
the strength in all positions 10 
do much about it although 
Margaret Johnston made a 
creditable recovery against Bar- 
bara Fuller after being 2-15 
down after 10 ends, and Eileen 
Bell's four bowled well to keep 
down the margin of defeat by 
Betty Stubbings. 

Ireland's hopes of winning the 
title for the first time melted 
away in perfect weather. As one 
of the Green party said, it was 
. just like old times again against 
England. Beating Scotland had 
raised expectations they could 
not five up' to. But as always the 
Irish lost with grace and good 
humour. 

Wales beat a much-changed 
Scotland team 133-106. Cardiff 
Amts Park is three stones 


throws from Sophia Gardens 
and the atmosphere there is 
supposed to be worth six points 


to the Welsh rugby team. They 
said playing at home would 
make the Welsh women difficult 
' to beat 

Stella Oliver's 31-17 win over 
Janet Milligan included a count 
of seven at the 16th end- Senga 
McCrone. who plays in the 
Commonwealth Games 
singles. was the only Scottish 
skip to win.

the suggestion that a perma-

would be beneficial. Someone

Australia in such a capacity, 
under a senior manager and 


choosing him in the past and 
saying that no offence was 
intended. Whether he will be 
more careful next time, we 
shall see. 

The text of Botham's letter 
to the chairman of selectors, 
Peter May, is as follows:

against Marshall 


By Peter Marson 


Gloucestershire's victory 
against Surrey, whom they beat 
by 96 runs at Bristol yesterday, 
was their fourth in the Britannic 
Assurance County Champion- 
ship. and it takes them clear of 
Worcestershire and Leicester- 
shire. who recorded third suc- 
cesses against Hampshire and 
Nottinghamshire respectively, 
to second place in the table 
behind Essex. 

Following Graveney’s 
declaration at 284 for eight 
Surrey laced a formidable target 
of 312 runs to win. A fair start, 
in which Stewart made 52, was 
followed by a mid-innings col- 
lapse initiated by Walsh, who 
took five of the last six wickets 
to fell as Surrey foundered well 
short at 215, of which Falkner 
made 40 not out 

At Worcester, Worcestershire 
needed 1 1 1 runs to beat Hamp- 
shire. The ferocity in Marshall’s 
opening rounds saw D'Oliveira 
and Hick fall early, and 
Worcestershire's position wors- 
ened as Smith’s troubled left 
hand suffered a blow which 
broke a finger. At 43. Marshall 
dealt with Neale, but Curtis and 


Closing in on Lord’s

As most of the competitors 
bid farewell to the 1986 ICC 
Trophy, the contest to reach 
Monday's final begins in earnest 
today for the four sides who still 
share the vision of an appear- 
ance at Lord's. 

The Metro pole Hotel in Bir- 
mingham will certainly be less 
colourful now the likes of Argen- 
tina, Fiji and Papua New 
Guinea have packed their bags. 
Argentina might not have won. 
but they enjoyed much of the 
limelight. 

Today, though, it is cricketing 
pedigree that prevails in two 
intriguing semi-final lies. Zim- 
babwe. the holders, play Ber- 
muda at West Bromwich 
Dartmouth in a repear of the 
1 982 final, and The Netherlands

ATHLETICS 


Coe has to settle 
for second best 


as 


From Pat Botcher, Athletics Correspondent, Stockholm 


Sebastian Coe was over a 
second fester than -his first 800 
metres time this year but still 
had to give best to Johnny Gray, 
of the United States, here m the 
1912 Olympic Stadium- last 
night. The American, who held 
an eight metres lead on Coe at 
one point, ran m I minute 43.85 
seconds with Coejusl outside on 
1:44. ' - • 


kilometre in 2min 4S.34sec and 
the second in 5:31 .00. - 
At that point Marsh was 
.eighth of the 13 runners, a 
common lactic by the Ameri- 
can. It has even been suggested 
that Marsh's a Monnon beliefs 
lead him' 10 give his opponents/ 
more than an even chance of*’ 


winning but his religion does 
not exdude good humour and 
he dismisses it with, a laugh, 
although sticking to his tactic. 

li has rarely failed him but he 
rarely comes up against men like 
Korir. the. Olympic champion. 
There . .was a. brief surge oi 
British interest - in the Iasi 
kilometre when Reger Hackney, 
of Wales, shot into a 10-metre 
lead with two laps to go. He was 
followed by Graeme Fell, who 
. was once British but is now, 
unfortunately; Canadian. 

Fell was the one who stayed 
on ihe pace when Korir and 
Marsh began, their last-lap 
sprint -And it was Fell who 
followed Korir home, the Ke- 
nyan winning in 8min 18.91 sec. 


Julius Korir, of' Kenya, 
showed why he is likely to be the 
Commonwealth steeplechase 
champion later this month 
when he outpaced one of the 
classiest fields ever. 


In a field which induded 
Henry Marsh, of the United 
States, the most consistent win- 
ner outside of championships in 
this event over the past five 
years, and other world-class 
steeplechasers like Poles 
Boguslaw Maminski and 
Krzysriof Wesolowski. and Ha- 
gen Melzer. of East Germany. 
Korir was always in touch with 
the lead, doing the first

more substantial inroads up-

But it is evident that he can 
survive afest.eariy pace and still ' 
put in that celebrated finishing 
kick. And that isrgoing to stand 
him in good stead at 5,000m in . 
the future. With the little matter- ' 
of selection out of the way, . 
Ovett can concentrate on win-- 
ning medals, potentially gold, in 
the Commonwealth dames in 
Edinburgh later this month and 
the European Championships in 
Stuttgart four weeks after that. 

Zola Budd’s runaway 3,000m 
victory in 8:34.43 also indicates 
another gold medal for England 
in Edinburgh, even though Miss 
Budd is running in the 1,S00 ttl 
B ui first there is the tempting 
prospect of a 2.000m race at 
Crystal Palace for Miss -Budd 
against Maricica Puica of 
Romania. Mrs' Puica. aged 35, 
beat Miss Budd in all of their 
matches last year but the young- 
ster is clearly getting closer to 
the form to start reversing those 
results. 

Fatima Whitbread's second 
javelin throw over 71 metres m

also hit gold at the Common- 
wealth Games.

Robert MJHrt -T he High Life 
On ITV, at 9.00pm 


•You are expected to take 
literally foe “high" in the title of 
Peter Carr's documentary 
ROBERT MILLAR -THE HIGH 
LIFE (ITV.9.00pm). Millar, a 
Scot seemingly wiry enough to 
be able to stand in for a 
spoke in his cycle wheel if he 
were to lose one. is the racing 
cydist on whose back and In 
whose legs rest most of 
Britain's hopes of a first win in 
the 1 986 Tour de France. 

Starting on Friday. Finishing 
fourth In 1984, MBiar became 
the first Bntteh cyclist to earn the 
title King of foe Mountains He 
tackled roads through the high 
Alpine and Pyreneean peaces 
as effortiessN as If they were foe 
high street of his native 
Glasgow. But there are many 
lows as highs In Carr's film, 
mainly to do wtth the state of 
Millar s spirits during his 1985 


CHOfCE 


season. He embodied foe low 
morale of foe Peugeot team 
he belonged to. He believed he 
had pedalled himself Into 
anonymity. He had had his fin of 
the alliances with other teams 
that managers of some of the fop 
- riders enter Into. While l 
• ; cannot pretend that I fully 
understood the ins and outs 
of such unsporting behaviour,! 
must say that by foe time foe 
wheels stopped spinning in 
Carr's film. I felt something of 
that sense of relief evidenced by 
Robert Millar now that he has 
both a new team and a new 
home. 

•Channel 4’s short season 
of Kurosawa films begins with 
RASHOMON (10.30pm), foe 
Story of a rape and a killing in a 


forest that opens out into a 
complex examination of moral 
attitudinizing. Seeing it agam. 
after an interval of 35 years and 
mindful of his later epic s Oka 
Ran and Kagemusha, I am even 
more convinced than ever 
that foe seeds of Kurosawa's 
genius never produced more 
Brilliant growth than in his early, 
modestly budgeted .films like 
Rashomon. 

•Radio choice: A new 
studio recordlngof Hans Werner 
Henze's opera TTre English 
Cat (Radio 3. 7.00pm). with an 
all-feline cast' of characters ' ' 
Speaking Edward Bond’s English 
libretto. And Alistair Cooks - 
moves Into territory he knows 
like the back of his hand - the 
classical jazz era - in his 
American Collection (Radio 4,

Navratilova cruises 


into semi-finals 


By Rex Bellamy, Teiwis Correspondent 


Martina Navratilova. Wim- 
bledon champion for the past 
four years is evidently not 
satisfied. She has advanced to 
the semi-finals by winning 10 
consecutive sets at a total cost 
of only 21 games. Until yester- 
day. the opposition had not 
been up to much. Bettina 
Bunge should have given her 
some decent exercise but was 
beaten 6-1. 6-3 in 56 minutes. 
Moreover. Miss Navratilova 
had a match point at 5-1. 

It was a lovely afternoon 
again, with the sun high 
enough to reduce the players' 
shadows io dwarfish silhou- 
ettes. Miss Bunge had lost all 
14 of her previous matches 
with Miss Navratilova but can 
be a graceful shot maker when 
given the lime. On this occa- 
sion she was hustled about 
from start to finish and was 
reminded, as we all were, that 
speed is always hostile to the 
graces. 

Miss Bunge must have felt 
like an archer challenging a 
gunslinger. There was always 
an air of fragility about her. 
largely because of the awe- 
some combination of strength, 
agility and skill at the other 
end of the court. Miss Bunge 
became so frustrated, so con- 
fused. that sometimes even 
the bread and butter shots 
were too much for her. 

During one such phase a 
colleague compared her with a 
lorry loaded with tomatoes 
that* were spilling all over the 
road. Miss Bunge did achieve 
a sporadic splendour, like a 
spluttering firework. But there 
was not much she could do. 
because Miss Bunge is far loo 
polite to think of anything as 
drastic as kicking Miss 
Navratilova in the shins when 
changing ends. 

Miss Navratilova purred 


along as smoothly as one of 
those expensive cars that fill 
up a lane and are so well 
sprung that one could safely 
perch a -drink on the bonnet 
Tactically and technically, she 
hardly did a thing wrong. 
Watching her. one wondered 
why most people find tennis 
such a difficult game to play. 
She was like one of those 
infuriating school children 
who know all the answers and 
finish top of the class as if it 
was the natural thing to do. 

Chris Lloyd, three times 
champion and seven times 
runner-up. had a strenuous 
and worrying ordeal before 
beating Helena Sukova 7-6, 4- 
6. 6-4. Miss Sukova, whose 
mother was runner-up in 


More Wimbledon 
news and 
results on page 37 


1962. is a 6ft 2in fast-court 
specialist who beat Miss 
Navratilova in the 1984 Aus- 
tralian championship. She 
looks awfully big and stem but 
playfully wears calf-length 
socks: in her case, some way 
short of calf-length. 

The first set lasted 50 
minutes. The first 1 1 points all 
went with service ana neither 
player had a break point until 
obviously, the tie-break, an 
1 8-point drama in which each 
had two set points and Miss 
Sukova was ultimately off 
target when aiming a compar- 
atively easy backhand down 
the line. By that time it 
seemed that the set. even the 
entire match, might have to be 
decided by a penalty shoot- 
out. 

Miss Sukova made a boldly 
competent start, seldom fell 


below the high standard she 
set herself, but finished frac- 
. tionally ' second best in an 
impressive demonstration of 
grass-court skills. The patterns 
were limited but striking. The 
level of performance,, by both 
players. was often 
breathtaking. 

The problem for Miss 
Sukova was. of course. Mrs 
Lloyd, who looked so very 
feminine — when she waggles 
about between points, anyway 
- but plays the rallies as if 
plugged in to an electricity 
system that energizes both 
body and the mind. At times 
the hardness of lips and eyes, 
of muscles and sinews, is 
almost frightening. If Mrs 
Lloyd was a waitress one 
would not argue about the bill; 
just leave a big tip and say 
goodnight. 

Gabnela Sabatini. aged 16 
years and one month, became 
the youngest player jn this 
century (and the first Argen-

singles semi-finals. Christine 
Truman was four months 
older when she advanced to 
the last four in 1 957. Yester- 
day Miss Sabatini won 6-2, 6-3 
against Caterina Lindqvist, 
the only Swede — other than 
Girina Karisson at Wimble- 
don two years ago — to get to 
the last eight on the women's 
singles in any of the three 
major championships 

Miss Lindqvist was also the 
only Swede of either sex in the 
singles quarter-finals. Her 
progress had been shaky, nota- 
bly against Gretchen Rush 
and when saving three match 
points against Elizabeth Wint- 
er. This is the first time Miss 
Lindqvist has gone farther 
than the second round at 
Wimbledon and there were 
signs yesterday that she was 


feeling much like, a rock- 
climber suspecting (half-way 
up) that the forces of gravity 
were going to win. 

Come to think -of it- if 
invited to make such a delec- 
- table choice one would invite 
the puckish, bouncy, lomboy- 
ish Miss Lindqvist to share a 
day's mountaineering in Suth- 
erland, whereas Miss Sabatini, 
a sultry beauty with flowing 
black hair, would decorate the 
drawing room perfectly.

Mandlikova forges ahead Taken in under 


By David Powell 


Hana .Mandlikova is the 
greatest enigma in the 
women's game. A startling 
shot-maker and fluent athlete 
one moment but prone to 
profligacy the next, she has 
threatened many times to 
break the Lloyd/Navratilova 
domination but has failed 
through her inconsistency. 
Yesterday, against Lori 
McNeil in the Wimbledon 
quarter-finals. Miss 
Mandlikova offered her full 
repertoire of harmony and 
discord. 

When Miss Mandlikova 
plays. Chris Lloyd tomorrow 
it will be only her third 
appearance in the Wimbledon 
semi-finals out of eight at- 
tempts. It is the one grand 
slam singles . championship 
which has eluded her. Miss 
Mandlikova's Wimbledon ze- 


nith was her defeat of Martina 
Navratilova in the semi-finals 
in 198! (which remains Miss 
Navratilova’s last reverse in 
singles here) and since then 
she has floundered against the 


unseeded Candy Reynolds 
for 


(1982), Jennifer Mundel 
(1983) and Elizabeth Smylie 
(1985). 

After three quarters of an 
hour on court one yesterday 
Miss Mandlikova was running 
the risk of plummetting to a 
Wimbledon nadir. Miss 
McNeil ranked 77th in the 
world but yet to drop a set at 
this year’s championships, 
had recovered from 5-2 down 
to force a tie-break, and the 
Czechoslovak, aged 24, had 
given up five set points. 

Miss McNeil took the. tie- 
break 7-4 but then her concen- 
tration lapsed. According to 


John WUkerson, her coach, 
this has been the stumbling 
block which has prevented her 
from progressing as quickly as 
.his other 22-year-old protegee 
from Houston. Zina Garrison, 
who reached the semi-finals 
last year. 

Miss Mandlikova reeled off 
eight games with an array of 
strokes worthy of the US Open 
champion. The American be- 
gan to doubt her instinct to 
attack Miss Mandlikova's ser- 
vice and her own, from being 
deep and reliable in the first 
set, began to yield a succession 
of double faults. 

A service break in the 
opening game of the deciding 
set. followed by a love game, 
gave Miss Mandlikova a 2-0 
lead. She wasted two match, 
points at 5-2 but dinched a 6- ’ 
7. 6-0, 6-2 victory on the third. 


false pretences 


By Simon Barnes 


There are 640 journalists at 
Wimbledon — not counting 
the tele people. This is a huge 
event, so naturally it is jam- 
packed with journos. Inevita- 
bly one imagines them tearing 
from court to court wearing 
their shoe soles paper-thin as 
they endeavour to watch every 
match and exchange a few 
words with every single 
player.

Second service in nostalgia game 

By Richard Evans 


Funnily enough, quite a lot 
ofjoumalists are like that But 
they are old-fashioned. Ludd- 
ite types who believe that 
tennis happens in real life 
between real people. For it is 
not actually necessary to see a 
real ball plinked or plonked in 
anger, nor to speak to any real 
human being. 


Top of her class: Martina Navratilova knew all the answers 
yesterday (Photograph: Ian Stewart) 


There was room to breathe 
and time to remember on the 
outside courts yesterday. Fa- 
miliar feces attached to stiffer 
limbs were In action as the 
likes of Roche, Stolle, Roger 
Taylor, Lutz and Cox recalled 
their yesterdays and wondered 
if an appendectomy might help 
their mobility. 

Not that Tony Roche was 
particularly worried about fit- 
ness, as he crossed elegant 
swords with fellow left- 
hander, Mark Cox. Playing in 
the “35 and Over Gentlemen's 
Invitation Singles" offers a 
very relaxed and pleasant way 
to pass a sonny afternoon. 

“1 usually try to tire my 
opponents out in the first few 
games, but I don't think that's 


going to work against Tony," 
laughed Cox. Roche won 6-4, 
6-2- Twenty years ago at 
Forest Hill Roche was No. 2 
seed and Cox beat him. 


This veterans’ event carry- 
ing a deserving £10,750 prize 
money cheque to the winner — 
much more than in the early 
days of the Grand Prix — has 
persuaded the AO E ng la nd 
Club to do away with the 
Men's Plate. 

Looking at the strength of 
the entry in the Ladies 1 Plate 
this year — Pam Shriver, 
Molly Van Nostrand, Annabel 
Croft - the demise of the 
men's event seems a shame. 

In 1930, Henri Cochet was 
asked by Ted Tinling if he 
wanted to play in the 


Plate-Cochet had never heard 
of the event hot he readily 
agreed to miter, and won. Miss 
Shriver is showing that kind of 
spirit here, and if the 
championship's revenue keeps 
on increasing, the committee 
might like to consider reviving 
the Men's Plate in some form 
or other. 


At the heart of the Wimble- 
don Press complex is a dark- 
ened room, a room which 
conscientious journos need 
never leave. It contains 15 
television sets and allows you 
to watch five matches simulta- 
neously. Crucially one of the 
sets relays pictures from a 
room in the bowels of the 
centre court block, wherein is 
buried the interview room. 


The players submit to it all 
with good grace — indeed, 
often enough with charm. 
They are a pretty intelligent 
bunch, on the whole. But the 
whole medium of the Press 
conference tends to turn the 
journos — the self-styled cyn- 
ics of every world — into 
sycophants. They renounce 
their position as word men, 
and hand it to the players. 


True, often enough the play- 
i themselves tor 


Meanwhile nostalgia is the 
name of the game on the 
outside courts in the second 
week — the gentle, happy 
antidote to the serious staff 
Passers-by are even treated to 
the occasional wisecrack. “He 
never had that shot when- he 
could play," grinned Fred 
Stolle, as Bob Lutz passed him 
down the line. The nice thing 
is they can all still play. 


“Wuril Yurr, every match is 
different," * said Martina 
Navratilova as we all scrib- 
bled away in various forms of 
scrawl. or debased shorthand 
before the bank of televisions. 
We learned that her family is 
all in England with her, and 
the previous night they had all 
been to .see Anthony and 
Cleopatra (her parents know it 
well in Czech) and her father 
had done the cooking, though 


ers can express 

belter than the journos any- 
way. But there is an immense- 
ly counter-productive Side to 
this sycophancy: the journal- 
ists tend to buy the players’ 
acts uncritically. The result of 
this awful sin is that some 
awful stuff gets written. But 
one cannot deny that journal- 
ists. being journalists, deserve 
all they get. The whole appara- 
tus of the Press conference is a 
remarkable exercise in the 
feeding of false pearls to real 
swine. 


FOOTBALL: ROUTE TO EUROPE PERSUADES WORLD CUP PAIR TO MOVE 


Rangers religion poser 
has Woods baffled 


Ambition rules heart 


of lethal Lineker 


By Hugh Taylor 


Much to' the chagrin of 
. David Holmes, the Glasgow 
Rangers chief executive, the 
v: is tiy-atl ended conference to 
slum- oft Chris Woods, the 
England second-choice goal- 
keeper and the latest acquisi- 
tion at Ibrox, was dominated 
by the problem which has 
bedevilled the dub for nearly a 
century. 

“Are you a Catholic?*' 
asked a reporter of the Nor- 
wich player who has joined 
Rangers at a record British fee 
for a goalkeeper of reputedly 
£600,000 and weekly earnings 
of £1,400. The previous record 
was held by* Phil Parfces 

Woods, obviously fore- 
warned about the emphasis 
the West of Scotland puts on 
religions difficulties, turned to 
his new master for guidance. 
Mr Holmes was npseL He 
glared indignantly at the ques- 
tioner and snapped: “Why do 
you ask that question? That's 
something even we haven't 
asked of Chris Woods. All' we 
know is that be is a goalkeeper 
who is going to be great, 6 ft 
2 in tall and that he is keen to 
join us at Ibrox." 

It was later discovered that 


Woods's religion is Church of 
England. 

Mr Holmes remained secre- 
tive too about the money paid 
for Woods and all he would 
say was:. “We have paid an 
a vital lot of cash for him." 


Woods was, however, forth- 
coming when asked why he 
had changed the tide of the 
transfer market by leaving a 


glittering career in England 
for Scotland. “IT 


have absolute- 
ly no reservations about it" 
raid Woods, who will undoubt- 
edly become an idol of the 
Ibrox supporters whatever the 
religious considerations. 

“I had a chat with 
England's manager, Bobby 
Robson, and I feel my chances 
of becoming my country's 
goalkeeper have not been 
dimmed by this move. ..After 
all why should I worry about 
coming north? Rangers are 
one of the biggest dabs in 
Europe, very ambitions at 
wanting to win everything, and 
this gives me the oppoitunity 
of playing again in European 
club football in the most 
magnificent stadium I've ever 
seen - different class." 


Gary Lineker said yesterday 
that he had been persuaded to 
leave Everton for Barcelona in 
a £2.75 million deal because of 
England's European baa 

“It’s a dream to be going to 
one of the best clubs in the 
world — from one of the best 
dubs in the world.” said 
Lineker, aged 25. who is 
reportedly on £4.000 a week 
with the crack Spanish, club. 

■ The top scorer in the World 
- Cup with six goals and in the 
League with 40 goals last 
season admitted: "It was a 
very difficult decision because 
I was extremely happy at 
Everton. But 1 have a desire to 
play in European football. It is 
a shame English dubs are 
banned from Europe — I 
believe they need each other.” 
'Lineker, who marries his 
girlfriend. Michelle, in Leices- 
ter on Saturday, said: “Obvi- 
ously finandal reasons also 
had something to do with, my 
decision. I have signed a six- 
year contract which will give 
me security for life — if 1 don’t 
spend the money!" 

Lineker flies to Barcelona 
on July 24 to meet his new 
colleagues, but he is already 
familiar with at least two of 


them. Barcelona, managed by 
Teny Venables, this summer 
paid £2.5 million 'for Mark 
Hughes from Manchester 
United while Steve Archibald 
is also on the books. . 


"Mark is a great player and 
I'm sure we will get on well.” 
he said. “Obviously the fact 
that Mark was in a similar 
position to me was a slight 
influence" 


With Ian Rush, of Liver- 
pool, joining Juventus for£3.3 
million, British forwards have 
brought in nearly £9 million 
this close season. That is 
welcome cash for their former 
employers, but their depar- 
tures will not help rapidly 
declining Football League 
attendances. 


Lineker, who .won the 
Adidas Golden Boot award in. 
Mexico, said: "Going to Spain 
will be a tremendous experi- 
ence and I'm sure it will help 
my game before the next 
European Championships and 
World Cup. I will enjoy 
playing in a different system" 


Good news for Everton 
-eslerday was that Adrian 
eath has signed a new four- 
year Contract.
