Mr Ridley - staled that his 
consultations on privatizing 
water authorities had shown 
that more time was needed to 
prepare legislation. 

In February, Mr Kenneth 


Thames, authority, arguing 
that it it is unlawful to spend 
money on employing consul- 
tants to advise on privatiza- 
tion until legislation has been 
passed allowing that to 
happen. 


.Mr Ridley reaffirmed last 
night that it was the 
Government’s intention to 
proceed with water privatiza- 
tion as soon as practicable. 
That commitment may be 
outlined by the introduction 
of a short Bill in the next 
session of Parliament that will 
enable authorities to. make 
necessary preparations for 
privatization. 

The Government faced a 
storm from opposition MPs 
over the way it made the 
announcement. Mr Jack Cun- 
ningham, Labour's chief envi- 
ronment spokesman, 
intervened during a debate to 
describe it as disgraceful and 
cowardly. 

After protests from the op- 
position, Mr Ridley was 
forced to go to the Commons 
to make a 10pm statement to 
MPs on the Cabinet's about- 
turn. 

Mr Cunningham ' said: 
"This decision is a major 
victory for the Labour and 
trade union campaign." 

The decision, coming on 
top of that to delay the sale of 
the Royal Ordnance factories 
was regretted by Conservative 
MPs who have strongly 
backed the privatization 
drive. 

The Government has also ! 
held back on the sale of British i 
Airways and shelved plans for I 
community radio.

Justice has ruled that the 
EECs 1 986 budget is illegal in 
a judgement that will save 
Britain £72 million pounds in 
payments to Brussels this 
year. 

In the longer term the 
saving could rise to £100 
million, but the judgement 
yesterday, just two days after 
Britain took over the EEC 
presidency, could spark a big 
row within the Community. 

In a ruling that will sharply 
curtail the powers of the 
European Parliament, the 
court said that the Com- 
munity's £21 billion budget 
was invalid. It was pushed 
through by the Parliament in 
December in defiance of the 
Council of Budget Ministers, 
who had put together a budget 


already made this year must 
stand, but the overall budget 
must be renegotiated. 

It has told parliamentarians 
and ministers to sort out their 
differences. If they fail — and 
they will be in continuous 
consultation for most of next 1 
week — the EEC will operate 
from August on a monthly < 
budget of one-twelfth of 1985 
spending. 

Bul last year's outlays — and 
income — were based on a 
fixed ceiling on national con- 
tributions to the budget of 1 
per cent of value added tax. In 
1 986 the ceiling rose to 1-4 per 
cent of VAT.

With Peacock having come 
down against the. Prime 
Minister’s preferred option. of 
introducing advertising into 
the BBC, the only major 
decisions to be taken by Mr 
Hurd and his colleagues over 
the next 18 months involve 
ihe next round of I BA con- 
tracts and a proposal for an 
indexed licence fee. 

There will also be talks with 
TV manufacturers over 
whether secs should in future 
have a special socket to allow 
viewers to adapt to a subscrip- 
tion system. 

Meanwhile the report s pro- 
posal covering plans for free 
market in TV and radio will 
be placed on the back burner. 

The ohe area where the 
Home Secretary did express a 
strong view concerned regulat- 
ing. the content of pro- 


for car radios; exemption for. 
pensioners wholly dependent 
on supplementary pension. 

• BBC-TV not to be obliged 
to take advertising under 
present system but BBC to 
have option to privatize Radi- 
os One and Two and local 
radio; non-occupied night- 
time hours of BBC-TV and 
TTV should be sold for 
broadcasting. 

• ITV franchises to go to 
tender with formal annual 
review by Independent Broad- 
casting Authority. 

• National telecommunica- 
tions systems should be al- 
lowed to act as common 
carriers for services including 
TV programmes; restriction of 
cable franchises to European 
Community operators should 
be removed. 

• Channel 4 given option of 
selling own advertising time 
no longer funded by ITV 
subscriptions; all restrictions 
on pay-P er 'Channel and pay- 
per-programme options to be 
removed. 

• Extension to cover broad- 
casting of statutory legislation 
on obscenity, defamation, and 
soon.

Peace hopes 

The Pope spoke of his desire 
for peace in Northern Ireland 
and Central America as he 
continued his tour of 
Colombia 


suggest there should not be 
pre-publication censorship or 
vetting of any kind of broad- 
casting. Mr Hurd insisted that 
existing guidelines involving 
pornography and violence 
should be kept. 

“Our present arrangements 
reflect the view that the pecu- 
liar^ intrusive nature of 
broadcasting, and in 


particular of television, con- 
tinue to require special regula- 
tory arrangements to ensure 
certain standards in broadcast 
sen-ices.” 

Mr Hurd indicated that 
proposals to privatize BBC 
Radio One and Two would be 
examined in conjunctijon 
with the Green Paper which 
he has decided to publish on 
the general provision and 
regulation of all radio 
broadcasting. 

Mr Gerald Kaufman, shad- 
ow Home Secretary, launched 
a bitter attack on the package.

Armed forces recruits 
face drug tests 


By Nicholas Bees ton 

Armed forces recruits will one third of the 30,000 yearly 


be shown new films on the 
dangers of drug abuse and 
some servicemen may face 
tests, as part of campaign by 
the Ministry of Defence to 
clamp down on narcotics of- 
fences, officials said yesterday. 

The announcements come 
in the wake of recommenda- 
tions by the drug abuse pre- 
vention committee, 
established 18 months ago to 
co-ordinate the fight against 
drugs by the Army, the Royal 
Navy and the RAF. 

Latest statistics disclose that 
in 1984, 353 servicemen and 
women were convicted in 
military and civilian courts on 
drugs-related charges and that 


recruits have had “experience 
of drugs” before entering. 

“The problem only affects 
one in every 1,000 service- 
men, but drugs and service life 
do not mix,” an officer in- 
volved in the campaign said. 

The films depict eight ficti- 
tious "cautionary tales” in- 
volving servicemen in Belize, 
West Germany, the United 
States and Britain. 

In most cases a member of 
the armed, forces faces a court 
martial, a term iii a military 
correction centre and dismiss- 
al. Servicemen suspected of 
taking drugs will now be asked 
to pass a urinalysis test.

£ 8 m seized in raid on French bank

Sir John said that a section 
of the audience had not appre- 
ciated the new and original 
treatment of an operatic piece 
generally regarded as sacro- 
sanct The production relies 
heavily on the imagery of the 
poet William Blake, ami in- 
volves angels and devils ap- 
pearing on stills and, mi the 
first night at least, struggling 
to keep their, balance. 


For the first time in at least 
a decade, neither producer dot 
designer took a curtain call on 
the first night, although both 
were in the house at the time 


“It is simply that this 
production is a very original 
approach. Serban and Jacobs 
are very serious artists who 
looked deeply into Fiddio in 
search of a new approach. 1 


think they have been largely 
successful,” he said. - 

“Sacrosanct pieces in the 
repertoire often benefit front a 
fresh approach, provided al- 
ways that there is a serious- 
ness in the approach, which 
there . certainly was in this 
case.” 

Sir John said that be had 
expected some poor reaction, 
because many people came to 
Covent Garden “wanting the 
conventional'”. Bet the present 
production was a genuine 
search for a different 
approach. 

Serban and Jacobs have 
hitherto had a good track 
track record. , . 

Their present production 
has had mixed reviews. Tht 


Times said yesterday that the 
finale, to which the audience 
appears to have objected, was 
“almost a total success, shock- 
ing though it is”. The Loudon 
Standard said that the produc- 
tion “grew stranger and 
stranger”, and that the second 
act “nose-dived” 


A Covent Garden spokes- 
man said ■ that there ^ had 
always been a small section of 
the regular audience who had 
been opposed to Sir Colin, and 
who might have been responsi- 
ble for some of the booing. Bnf 
the music appeared to have 
been generally well received, 
and tii ere was ample applause 
for ail the singers when they 
took their curtain calls.

A bomb exploded outride a 
police-station in Cape Town 
early yesterday injuring a po- 
liceman and a policewoman, 
both whites. 

It was the Htft bomb inci- 
dent in various town centres 
since the declaration of a state 
of emergency on June 12. 

Meanwhile, the Bureau for 
Information reported that 
three black victims of “neck- 
lace executions" were found 
during the 24 hours to 6 am 
yesterday — one in the Eastern 
Cape, one in the Southern 
Transvaal and one in the 
KwaNdebele “homeland.” 

A total of 96 “unrest- 
related” deaths have been 
reported since June 12 by the 
bureau, which controls news 
about such incidents under 
the state of emergency 

A correspondent for the 
West German television net- 
work ARD, Dr Heinrich 
Bueltgen, left South Africa last 
night after his appeal against 
expulsion was turned down on 
Wednesday. He is the fourth 
foreign journalist to be ex- 
pelled since June 1 2. 

In Johannesburg, the Metal 
and Allied Workers' Union 
(MAWU). one of South 
Africa's biggest mainly black 
trade unions, opened its first 
national congress yesterday 
with its president, Mr Max- 
well Xulu, absent and report- 
edly in hiding 

“• ZURICH: Mr Fritz 
Leutwiler, the former Swiss 
National Bank chairman, has 
resigned as mediator between 
South Africa and its creditor 
banks in reaction to recent 
political developments there, 
a spokesman said here yester- 
day (Reuter reports). 

He said the decision had. 
been taken shortly after the 
imposition of the state of 
emergency and had been al- 
ready communicated to South 
African officials.

Lords rule 
in favour 
of TSB sale 


The £1 billion stock market 
flotation of ihe Trustee Sav-

ahead in September after a 
unanimous ruling by the 
House of Lords that the assets 
of the bank do not belong to itsi 
depositors (Lawrence Lever; 
writes). 

The sale, which the TSB 
hopes will create a million 
small shareholders, has been 


delayed since February by. 
challenges in the Scottish and 


challenges in the Scottish and 
English courts. 

However, a- petition to the 
European Court of Human 
Rights to block the sale has 
not been ruled out by the TSB 
depositors who mounted the 
challenge. Details, page 17 


By John Good body 
Sports News Correspondent 

The Central Council of 
Physical Recreation are to 
meet teachers' nnkms and 
professional organizations 
over halting the decline of 
competitive sport in state 
schools. 

The council believes that 
many schools fight shy of 
tpprhing that in sport winning 
is important It also blames 
lack of finance which leads to 
poor facilities and coaching, 
misguided educational philos- 
ophy and lack of links between 
schools and clubs. 

Traditional team games such 
as cricket, football and rugby 
union are particularly suffer- 
ing. the council fears. 

Mr Nigel Hook, senior tech- 
nical officer, said:“There is a 
, belief against competition in 
schools, that no child should 
be seen to fail. But it is 
educational rubbish that it is 
bad for someone to learn to 

| lose. Some element of competi- 
tion is surely good becanse it 
j reflects life.” 

Mr Peter Lawson, its secre- 
tary, said: “Things are sliding 
downhill so fast that it is not 
real. In the absence of a vastly 
increased government funding, 
there must be a partnership 
between the educationists and 
the sporting bodies.” 

The National Union of

ety of Education Officers, 
Secondary’ Heads Association 
and the National Confedera- 
tion of Parent Associations 
have agreed to meet the 
council. 

Mr Hook agreed there was 
the difficulty of lack of money. 
“The allowance for sport has 
not kept in line with inflation

“But it also affects sports

is nqt enough money to pay fur 
children to be taken by bns to 
pools. Unless parents them- 
selves are prepared (0 pay, 
children are being denied the 
chance of a swim.” 

But Mr Hook also said that, 
although children had a far 
greater choice of activities, 
“from archery to yoga ”, than 
before, this had disadvan- 
tages. “This affects team 
games where there are some- 
times too few people to make 
np sides so that those who 
want to take part are prevent- 
ed from doing so." 

He said that some of the 
activities made little contribu- 
tion to physical fitness, citing 
a report by Loughborough 
University, which found tint

Privatization of local 
services increasing 
after two quiet years 


Hugh Clayton, Environment Correspondent 
The number of councils meals and refuse collection 


. privatizing services has risen 

- after two quiet years', accord- 
ing to the latest survey by 

. Local Government Chronicle. 

■ It says that 16 per cent of 
councils are privatizing some, 
services this year, compared 

■ with i i percent m each of the 
; - past two years. 

The Government is prepar- 
ing a new drive for more 
• - competitive tendering of local 
government services in the 
-/wake of the appointment of 
Mr Nicholas Ridley as Secre- 
tary of State for the Environ- 
. . ment. As Secretary of State for 
Transport he masterminded 
the deregulation of bus 

■ operations. 

• Several ministers have indi- 

- rated recentiy that die appar- 
-em lack of momentum in 

efforts to secure more privati- 
zation should not be taken as a 
sign that plans have been 
abandoned. 

The Department of the 
, Environment proposed more 

- than a year ago that school 


were services that might have 
to put out to private tender. 

Mrs Angela Rumbold, a 
Parliamentarty Under-Secre- 
tary of State, has indicated 
that the Government wants to 
push ahead for more privati- 
zation in the face of union 
opposition and derision. 

A union survey of about 300 
cases of privatization suggests 
that 30 per cent of jobs go 
when a service is switched to a 
private company and that the 
value of the pay and benefits 
to remaining staff is cut by 30 
percent. 

Details of the survey were 
disclosed by Mr John Ed- 
monds. general secretary of 
the General, Municipal,' 
Boilermakers’ and Allied 
Trade Union, who said: “Peo- 
ple who axe used to exploita- 
tion can usually be expected to 
accept the extra lash." 

The survey in Local Govern- 
ment Chronicle shows that 
despite the party-political split 


about privatization, Conser- 
vative and Labour councils 
are among the 60 putting 
services out to private con- 
tract this year and among the 
19 bringing them back to 
directly-employed workforces. 

Conservative Enfield and 
Labour Islwyn are among 
those which have called in 
private operators to dear rats 
from sewers. Conservative 
Lewes in East Sussex has 
awarded a £12,000 contract 
for grass-cutting, while Con- 
servative Melton expects to 
save £8,000 a year on a 
£38,000 deal for cleaning a 
rattle market 

Conservative Tendring has 
awarded a *£13,000 contract 
for a dog warden, while Con- 
servative Wandsworth ex- 
pects to save £100,000 a year 
by privatizing office cleaning. 

Labour Peterborough has 
awarded contracts worth more 
than £500,000 a year for gas 
fitting and servicing and for 
the painting of council homes.

lenged Dr David Owen yester- 
day to disown the Liberal 
Alliance candidate in the 
Newcastle-under-Lyme by- 
election for his membership 
and support of the Campaign 
for Nuclear Disarmament. 

The former Secretary of 
State for Defence threw down 
the gauntlet as the first opin- 
ion poll in the North Stafford- 
shire constituency put the 
Conservatives a poor third, 
with the Alliance emerging as 
the main challenger to 
Labour. 

Mr Heseltine said that the 
SDP leader left the Labour 
Party because he could not 
stomach its ever more ex- 
treme one-sided disarm ers. 

Voters wanted to know the 
difference between the CND- 
riddled Labour Party Dr 
Owen had abandoned and the 
CND-riddled Liberal Party he 
had embraced. 

“You have led the small 
band of erstwhile Labour MPs 
out of the frying pan ofLabour 
unilateralism and straight into 


Mr Heseltine 
how Dr Oweq could reconcile 
his backing for Nato and 
Britain’s nuclear deterrent 
with “support for a campaign 
to take Britain out of Nato." 


. The SDP leader, appearing 
at a press conference with the 
candidate. Mr. Alan Thomas, 
rejected Mr Heseltine’s 
charges. 

Dr Owen said that he 
respected the pacifist tradition 
in politics, and that the only 
thing that divided him from 
Mr Thomas was a difference 
of opinion over the “mecha- 
nism for achieving 
disarmament" 


It is becoming increasingly 
dear that the SDP and the 
Liberals see the creation of a 
European deterrent under the 
control of the leaders of 
France and -the European 
members of Nato, as the way 
of resolving their damaging 
divisions over the future of 
Polaris

CPS A to 
meet on 
election 


By Mark Dowd 

Twenty-nine members of the 
Civil and Public Services As- 
sociation national exeentive 
committee will meet next 
Tuesday to decide what action 
to take following reports of 
election malpractice after the 
election of Mr John Mao 
readie as general secretary- 

The CPSA president, Mrs 
Marion Chambers, is examin- 
ing complaints before making' 
any formal recommendation, 
but with moderates holding 22 
of the 29 seats on the national 
executive, a faff-scale inquiry 
looks inevitable. 

Less certain is the question 
of who would preside over the 
investigation. Under the 
union's complaints procedure, 
the general secretary should 
undertake the task. However, 
Mr Alistair Graham, who oo 
copies the position, is due to 
leave oo July 11 to become di- 
rector of the Industrial Soci- 
ety. If Mr Graham » overlook- 
ed, the obvious choice and fav- 
ourite for the job would be the 
president, Mrs Chambers. 

Senior CPSA officials yes- 
terday denied reports of fric- 
tional in-fighting and disag- 
reements in it&e moderate 
camp over who shonkf head 
the inquiry. 

• The Society of Civil and 
Public Servants yesterday 
spoke out strongly against 
plans to employ outside mid- 
dle grade executives in the 
Department of Employment. 


IT TOOK 2,000 YEARS 


TO CURE LEPROSY. 


PREVBI1MG IT MUST 


BE QUICKER. 


'Prevention is better than cure 1 . In leprosy 
treatment, that cliche marks precisely where we have 
gat to. The cure has taken so long that we have not 
dared to think about prevention. Now we can. For 
work is hastening to provide immunity from this 
crippling, debilitating, ill-understood disease. 

Your help has taken us this far. We need more of 
that help to take us further. To relieve whole areas of 
the Third World from its threat To put an end, once and 
for all, to a disease which cripples and maims. 


YOUR CHAHCi 10 KOI A DISEASE 

It was the efforts of a previous generation that rid 
the world of smallpox and other hornfic diseases. 

Now, it's our turn with leprosy The work we have 
described here has been made possible with financial 


help given by people like you. Now that we can say 
leprosy, nov 


there is a cure for leprosy, now that we can talk for the 
first time of preven tion, we ask for your support again. 

There are many calls 
on your generosity - that we 
know 


FIRST, THE CURE 

As long ago as 1948, it was discovered that 
Dapsone could be used to control the disease. And 
then, the inevitable happened: we began to detect 
resistance to Dapsone in some strains of the leprosy 
bacillus. 

The medical breakthrough was finally reached 
just a few years ago, in the early part of the decade. A 


new combination of drugs not only provided a cure 
jeeaf 


but dramatically reduced the duration of treatment 
Non-infectious cases can be cured in a six-month 
treatment using three drugs. The treatment time with 
infectious coses has been shortened to a minimum of 
two years. 

We have a cure. It costs £35 fora yearh 
treatment And LEPRAhas proved how it can make 
your money work. 

In 1966, when we started our Malawi 
programme, there were an estimated 50,000 leprosy 
sufferers. By January 1984, 43,771 patients hod been 
successfully treated. 



But only very rarely 
are we given the chance 
to rid the worid of a 
disease. The chance has 
come. Will you take it? 

It took two thousand 
years to find the cure. 
Will you help us 
find a vaccine?

Birkbeck fights 
£2m cut in budget 


Irish court 
returns 
Sinn Fein 
debt fund 


The Irish Republic govern- 
ment has been ordered to 
return $80,000 (£51,600) with 
interest seized from Mr Joe 
Cahill the former provisional 
IRA leader in Belfast and 
another man four years ago 
(Richard Ford writes). 

Mr Cahfil told, a Dublin 
court yesterday that the mon- 
ey was intended to fiind and 
repay debts incurred by provi- 
sional Sinn Fein, the political 
wing of the provisional IRA. 
as part of their strategy of 
fighting elections. 

.The cash was seized by the 
police in 1982 as Mr Edward 
Howell left a Dublin restau- 
rant where he had been with 
Mr Cahill, now a prominent 
Sinn Fein member m Dublin. 


By Lacy Hodges, Education Correspondent 
A impending cut of up to stands to lose about 30 per 


£2m in the funding of Birk- 
beck College, London, was 
confirmed yesterday by the 
Court of London University, 
which decided to ask for more 
money to rescue the college. It 
is the only one in the country 
lo devote its work to adults 
who work during the day and 
study at night. 

The court, chaired by Lord 
Seaman, wants the Universi- 
ty Grants Committee to pro- 
vide more money for the 
• university in general and Birk- 
beck in particular. It -will also 
ask the UGC to reconsider - 
urgently the treatment of the 
college resulting from a new 
funding formula for part-time 
students. 

The proposed cut in 
Birkbeck’s' budget arises from 
this formula. It affects Birk- 
beck so seriously because all 
its students are in this 
category. 

In the past London Univer- 
sity ftmded the college az the 
rate of 0.8 of a full-time 
student, but the UGC decided 
in May that part-timers 
should be ftmded at one-half 
the normal rate instead- 

This means that Birkbeck 


cent of its UGC funding of 
£7.5m over the next three 
vears. 

In a statement yesterday, 
London University said: 
“Because of the application of 
the UGCs standard formula 
for part-time students to Birk- 
beck College, the court is 
unable to provide the funds to 
preserve Birkbeck’s unique 
and invaluable contribution 
to part-time education.” 

Yesterday staff and students 
from Birkbeck handed in a 
petition to Parliament. They 
were received by MPs and 
peers from all parties, includ- 
ing Conservative MPs Dr 
Keith Hampson and Ivor 
Sian brook, and Lords Den- 
ning, Glenamara, Seebohm 
and Ladies Ewart-Biggs, Da- 
vid and White. 

The petition was signed by 
more than 15,000 students 
and supporters. It called on 
the Secretary of State for 
Education to "take all steps 
open to him to prevent 
changes in the college’s annual 
grant which will seriously 
affect its future”.

Willis opposes move 
to expel electricians 


By Peter Davenport 

Mr Norman Willis, general cases against the other major 

union involved. 


secretary of the TUC, moved 
yesterday to head off fresh 
demands that the electricians’ 
union be thrown out of the 
organization for its role in the 
News International printing 
dispute. 

Addressing the biennial 
conference of the National 
Graphical Association (NGA) 
in Blackpool Mr Willis said 
that the priority must be to 
keep the unions together. 

Earlier this week the 400 
delegates voted unanimously 
to condemn “t he an ti-union 
collusion of the EETPU with 
News Internationa] which led 
to this dispute”. 

They instructed their na- 
tional council to submit a 
motion to September’s TUC 
congress seeking “immediate 
expulsion” of the EETPU if 
the dispute has not ended by 
then. 

But Mr Willis warned the 
printers against pressing for 
expulsion. He said that both 
the TUC and the NGA now 
found it harder to rely on the 
unquestioned loyalty of mem- 
bers and affiliated unions. 

Mr Willis pledged continu- 
ing TUC support in attempt- 
ing to resolve the Wapping 
dispute. A solution would not 
be achieved, “with one or 
more unions partially or whol- 
ly ostracized from the rest 

Mr Willis also referred to 
NGA complaints against 
Sogai ’82. the largest print 
union. “Most people would 
find it absolutely astonishing 
that in the middle of a battle 
against a tenacious enemy, 
one union involved should be 
taking five inter-union dispute 


“If managements, particu- 
larly in the national and 
provincial newspapers, are to 
be prevented from continually 
gaining the initiative, dividing 
the unions and perhaps intro- 
ducing non-unionism, the 
priming unions have surely to 
act in a co-ordinated and 
unified manner”. 

He said that the only solu- 
tion was for a single union for 
the print industry, a . call 
similar to that made to the 
conference earlier this week by 
Miss Brenda Dean. Sogai 
general secretary. 

Referring to talks with the 
Labour Party on an alterna- 
tive system oflabour laws, Mr 
Willis said that the TUC was 
proposing that the union rule 
book must provide for ballots 
on strikes and secret ballots 
for union executive positions. 

• Mr Eric Hammond, the 
electricians' union leader, is to 
meet Mr Willis today to report 
on his transatlantic initiative 

.to reopen talks oh the 
Wapping dispute (Michael 
McCarthy writes). 

Mr Hammond, accompa- 
nied by Mr Tom Rice, his 
national secretary for the 
printing industry, flew to Los 
Angeles last weekend at the 
TUCs behest for talks with 
Mr Rupert Murdoch, News 
International chairman, and 
Mr Bruce Matthews, manag- 
ing director. 

• Conference delegates yes- 
terday voted overwhelmingly 
in favour of a motion calling 
for merger talks with Sogai

MPs hit at 
police 
sport cash 


North Yorkshire Police 
have beat seriously criticised 
by 60 Labour MPs for accept- 
ing sport sponsorship from a 
firm at the centre of an 
industrial dispute which offi- 
cers have been policing (Rich- 
ard Evans writes). 

In a Commons early day 
motion, the MPs expressed 
“incredulity and concern'" that 
in the middle of the dispute 
between Silentnight Holdings 
at Sutton, Surrey, and trade 
onion members the police 
should have accepted money 
from the firm. 

About £1,500 was given by 
the firm to a police team in the 
Three Peaks’ yacht race. 


Police get 
high-speed 
guidelines 


By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 
New guidelines for high- 
speed police pursuits have 
been adopted by chief consta- 
bles so that only top class 
police drivers using rmaxi- 
tnum care” should be - in- 
volved in chases. 

As details of the guidelines 
were published yesterday, a 
London police constable died 
after his car was hit •: 

Police Constable Martin 
Bell aged 27, was the first 
person to die in a chase in 
London this year, but there 
were 1 1 such deaths In Lon- 
don between 1982 and 1984. 


Woman fools everyone 
in shoplifting case, 


Police were yesterday trying 
to trace a woman who fooled 
everyone in a shoplifting court 
case. When she was arrested 
she gave the name and address 
of her best friend. When she 
appeared in court her friend — 
who did not know anything 
about it — was babysitting for 
her. 

No one at Newbury Magis- 
trates Court, Berkshire, de- 
tected the deception and now 
the woman has disappeared, 
leaving her friend to race the 
village gossips. The friend, 19- 
year-old Belinda Cartwright, 
of Upper Lam bourn, near 
Newbury, knew nothing about 
the court case until a local 
newspaper carried a report test 
week. 


She learned to her horror 
that she had been fined £50 for 
stealing food and other goods 
from Tesco in Newbury. The 
thief gave the store detective 
and police Belinda's correct 
dateofb/rtft. 

Defending solicitor Mr Jan 
Campbell — who was also un- 
aware of ihe deception — told 
the court the bogus “Belinda" 
had been short of money and 
had been having a series of 
bad nights, with her child, aged, 
one. who was teething. 

The real Belinda learned 
what bad happened from her 
mother as' she recovered, in 
hospital after giving birth, to 
her week-old baby. 


Police are trying to locate 
the woman. 


The public 
face of 
freemasons 


Freemasons are trying to 
improve their public image, 
after more than 30 years of 
obsessive reticence, with the 
opening of the first permanent 
public masonic exhibition in 
London today by the Duke of 
Kent. Grand Master of the 
United Grand Lodge of 
England. 

For too long freemasons feel 
they have been maligned by 
critics portraying them as 
members of secret societies 
indulging in obscure rituals 
with religious overtones, and 
using their masonic contacts 
to advance their own interests. 

The exhibition in Free- 
masons’ HalL Great Queen 
Street Holbom, puts on pub- 
lic show for the first time 
many documents and arte- 
facts tracing the history of 
freemasonry. It also draws 
attention to masonic charita- 
ble works as well as naming 
royals and the famous who 
were freemasons. 

Freemasonry is one of the 
world's oldest secular societies 
and developed in England in

the Grand Lodge, which ad-

before the Second World War 
there were three masonic 
periodicals and freemasons 
had a higher public profile. 


Since then freemasons had 
been in a defensive posture

decided to try to dear up some 


of the public misconceptions: 

Freemasons were discour-

was a belief' in a Supreme

Growth in number of 
Mature applicants

per cent of the total of 
157.085. 

Older students choose to 
study certain subjects, in par- 
ticular the humanities where 
the proportion was as high as 
1 i.7 percent, with 9.7 percent 
opting for social sciences 

Overall, there has been a 
very slight decline in the 
standard of grades achieved at 
A level. The average score of 
home candidates accepted for 
university entrance has re- 
mained the same at 1 1 points 
or two Bs and a C This is the 
first time the average score has 
not risen since it was first cal- 
culated in 1980. 

“It is apparent that univer- 
sities are continuing to accept 
candidates of very high calibre 
as measured by A level re- 
sults," UCCA says. The most 
sought after subjects require 
higher A level scores than 1 1 
points, and these include law, 
medicine, veterinary science. 


same time as the number of 
applicants aged 25 and over 
has increased, according to 
figures published yesterday by 
•the Universities Central 
Council on Admissions. 

Between 1984 and 1985 
there ; was a 10.3 per cent 
-increase in the number of 
over-25s applying to study for 
a university degree, and a 1 .5 
<frop tn applicants 
aged 18, the UCCA statistical 
supplement for 1984-85 says. 
This drop is attributed to the 
decline in the birth rate from 
the mid-1960s.

cants wanting a university 


that universities have been 
encouraging more mature stu- 
dents to apply, and accepting 
proportionatelymore of them; 
and that the universities of 
Glasgow. Strathclyde and Ul- 


ster are taking part fully now 
m the UCCA admissions 
scheme. They take more than 
average numbers of mature 
students. 

The previous year there was 
an 8.1 per cent increase in the 
number of over-25s applying 
for university, when there 
were no special factors operat-

Teachers fight ethnic poll 


Teachers in London are 
- boycotting a census which 
-seeks to establish the ethnic 
origin of staff working for the 
'Inner London Education Au- 
thority (our Education Corre- 
spondent writes). 

, They are being supported in 
the anion by the National 
Union of Teachers, and al- 
most half the 1.000 schools, in 
the Inner London Education 
Authority have refused to fill 
in the questionnaire. 

The Ilea, the largest educa- 
tion authority in Britain, has 
warned the teachers that they 
could face disciplinary action 
if they do not comply. 

In common with many 
organizations, the authority 
argues that it needs informa- 
tion about the racial origins of 


its 21.000 teachers to assess 
whether its equal opportuni- 
ties policies are working. 

The Commission for Racial 
Equality makes the same argu- 
ment. and there is widespread 
agreement nationally on the 
need for ethnic monitoring 

However, ethnic minority 
groups and those on the leu 
are suspicious. They are wor- 
ried that the information 
might fall into the wrong 
hands. 

Mr Mike Loosley, secretary 
of the Inner London Teachers' 
Association, said: “The pres- 
sure is being put on heads 
now. f know of some who 
have had four reminders and 
others who have had unoffi- 
cial threats of disciplinary 
action. 


“We have advised our 
members to slick fast in not 
participating, but. if the au- 
thority is unwise, it is heading 
for confrontation. If it is wise, 
it will talk about it further, but 
I fear the first." 

A spolesman at NUT head- 
quarters said that the Ilea's 
intentions may have been 
good but the authority seemed 
to have made some tactical 
errors. 

Many people did not be- 
lieve, for example, that there 
were foolproof safeguards 
about confidentiality. 


about confidentiality. 

Mr Saleh Mamon, secretary 
of the London Black Teachers 
Group, said there was im- 
mense resentment about the 
questionnaire. 


Pop singer PC in shooting ‘victim 
to leave of 1,000 to 1 chance’ 
Britain 


By Nicholas Beestan 

Boy George, the pop music 
star, announced plans to leave 
Britain yesterday, after his 
brother said that 'jie was a 
heroin addict with only eight 
weeks to live. 

The millionaire singer gave 
conflicting accounts of his 
health, saying he was “fit 
enough to run a marathon" 

. and liter admitting he was “an 
out and out junkie with only a 
few weeks to live"... 

. His brother, Mr . David 
O’Dowd, aged 21, repeated 
charges published in The Sun 
newspaper, and said: “I went 
public about George’s heroin 
addiction because I believe it 
is the only way he can be sav- 
ed. Leaving the country now 
wpuld just be running away 
from the problem-" 


Fumes put 10 
in hospital 


Ten people were taken to 
hospital yesterday after anoth- 
er escape of fumes was detect- 
ed in a store where experts 
were investigating a gas leak. 
The Tesco supermarket at 
Carmarthen in West Wales 
was closed while health offi- 
cials checked freezer equip- 
ment. 

Eighty eight people were 
treated in the West Wales 
General Hospital at Glangwili 
on Wednesday after the first 
escape of fumes caused chaos. 


The tragic shooting of John 
Sh orthouse, aged 5. by a police 
marksman was a lesson to all 
police forces to ensure that 
children were not at risk be- 
fore armed officers searched 
for criminals, Stafford Crown 
Court was told yesterday. 

Mr Anthony Palmer, QC, 
defending Police Constable 
Brian Chester, who has denied 
the unlawful Wiling of the boy, 
told the jury that the officer 
had been the victim of a 
“cruel, l. 000-1 chance.” 

A verdict is expected today. 

PC Chester, aged 35, of 
Leek Woorion, Warwickshire, 
is accused of gross negligence 
in shooting John Shorthouse 
through the heart from nine 
inches range, as the boy lay in 
his bed during a police raid on 
his parents’ maisonette in 
Birmingham last August. 

Mr Palmer, summing up, 
told the jury: “No verdict of 
yours can bring the lad back. 
He was a victim. 

“Brian Chester is also a 
victim — a victim of today's 
violence which requires a beat 
bobby without a penny’s extra 
pay to go into places to face, 
possibly, an armed man. 

“He is a victim of inade- 
quate preparation, no proper 
reconnaissance, no proper in- 


formation as to who was in the 
house, and who might be 
sleeping where. He was a 
victim of a cruel 1,000-1 
chance.". 

Mr Palmer added: “One 
thing that might be learned 
from this case by all police 
forces in future is to have 
better reconnaissance and bet- 
ter information about who 
lives in the house before they 
go in.” 

Mr Palmer said that PC 
Chester had not been told 
there were children in the mai- 
sonette as police searched for 
three men — including John 
Shorihouse's father, who had 
carried out an armed raid on a 
restaurant in Wales earlier. 

The jury had to be sure that 
the marksman had fired delib- 
erately, and knew that John 
Shorthouse was in the bed- 
room, as the prosecution 
claimed, before they could 
convict. 

“He must have squeezed 
the trigger, but he has no 
memory, no realization of 
having done so," Mr Palmer 
said 

The prosecution claimed 
that the boy must have moved 
and startled PC Chester, who 
fired instinctively as a result. 

The case continues today.

Branson 
offer of 
trophy 


After sweeping victoriously 
into London up the Thames in 
bis boat Virgin Atlantic Chal-

Branson offered his own tro- 
phy to challengers for the 
Atlantic Bine Riband. 

“I've thrown down the 
gauntlet, invited other chal- 
lengers and now I'm offering a 
trophy to promote competition 
as Howard Hales intended,” 
be said. 

The original Hales Trophy, 
presented by Mr Howard 
Hales to holders of the Bine 
Riband, is m the American 
Merchant Marine Museum in 
New York. 

The curators are refusing to 
give up the trophy, which has 
been in the museum since the 
American liner United States 
last broke the transatlantic 
crossing record 34 years ago. 

“Since all Hales' trustees 
are now dead, there is a danger 
that it will stay there for ever," 
Mr Branson said. He was 
speaking at a champagne re- 
ception aboard a mock Missis- 
sippi river boat — part of his 
Virgin empire.

Sizeable drop in 
cost of winter 


package holidays 


By Derek Harris. Industrial Editor 


Package holidays prices are 
now so low that tour operators 
have detected a trend towards 
three foreign holidays a year. 

Intasun. Britain's second 
biggest tour operator, yester- 
day released its winter tour 
brochure with some prices 
between a fifth and nearly a 
ihird cheaper than last winter, 
with a wide range of cheap 
offers for families and the 
over-55 age group. 

More than half the winter 
sun ofierin£S and more than a 
third of ski holidays on offer 
from Thomas Cook Holidays, 
which also released its bro- 
chure yesterday, are cheaper 
than last winter. 

However, both companies 
gave a warning that the price 
discounting was unlikely to 
last. Mr Roger Heape. 
Imasun's managing director, 
said that he expected an 
overall price increase next 
summer. 

Mr Erich Reich, Thomas 
Cook's managing director, 
said: “The increases . . . could 
be anything between 5 and 
10 percent”. 

The average price of Cook's 
winter sun holidays has been 
reduced by 2 per cent, gener- 
ally undercutting its 
com petitions, he said. 

Mr Heape said that there 
were still holidays available 
for the rest of this summer 
into September. While there 
would be some discounting, it 


would be nothing like the 
situation last summer. 

He said that with some 


prices also rising, particularly 
for winter sports, average 


for winter sports, average 
overall prices would be about 
the same as last winter. ; 

Mr Heape said that conflict- 
ing cost pressures would affect 
prices next summer. Exchange 
raies for holiday destination 
currencies, notably the Span- 
ish peseta, were not as 
favourable as they had been, 
and ii was difficult to estimate 
how long cheaper aviation fuel 
costs would continue. 

The attitude of Spanish 
hoteliers had been 
“encouraging" because they 
did not seem to be following 
the pattern of demanding a 
disproportionate increase in 
room rates after a good sea- 
son. But he gave a warning 
that there would be increased 
hotel charges because of high- 
er rates of local inflation. 

Intasun hopes to entice 
holidaymakers with ofFers,-in- 
cluding free airport parking, 
while no-surcharge guarantees 
against currency changes or 
rises in fuel costs could 
amount to an extra bill of up 
to £10. or a similar-sized 
rebate. 

Fnnge benefits on offer 
from Cook’s include free air- 
port parking, an unqualified 
no surcharges guarantee, free 
overnight accommodation for 
those on early morning flights 


New development puts 
historic Leeds ‘at risk’ 


By Christopher Warmnn, Property Correspondent 


Historic buildings in the 
centre of Leeds are under 
threat because of large devel- 
opment schemes which take 
no account of their impact on 
the heritage of the city, a 
report by Save Britain's Heri- 
tage says today. 

The report written by Mr 
Ken Powell, says that Leeds 
has retained much of its 
historic character but argues 
that heritage is being squan- 
dered in an uncritical pursuit 
of new development often of 
the most inappropriate type". 

It details a proposed devel- 


opment by MAB, a Dutch 
company, for a large site in 


company, for a large site in 
Kirkgaie, which he claims 
would involve the demolition 
of a considerable number of 
Victorian buildings. 


“Most of Leeds market 
would be rebuilt and also the 
scale of the development is 
likely to jeopardize the future 
of Boar Lane, one of the great 
historic streets of Leeds." 

The report stales that “the 
overriding aim in Leeds plan- 
ning appears to remain, as it 
was 10 or even 20 years ago, to 
obtain large development 
schemes, regardless of their 
impact on the fabric 

Although there have been 
success stories, including the 
riverside area of central Leeds, 
a survey of local authority 
spending on conservation 
shows that Leeds ranked far 
below comparable cities

Future checks on broadcasting 
should not be less than now 


PEACOCK REPORT 

The Government saw merit in 
the proposals of the Peacock 
Committee on financing the 
BBC paving the way for a free 
broadcasting market with an 
increase in the proportion of 
television programmes supplied 
by independent producers, Mr 
Douglas Hurd, the Home Sec- 
retary. said in a statement to the 
Commons on the report (which 
is detailed on this pa^e). 

Careful consideration would 
have to be given to this and 
other ideas in a stimulating and 
chajlenging report, he said, 
which would encourage 
constructive public debate. 

Final views would be reached 
only after parliamentary and 
public reaction and views from 
other interested parties, but be 
had comments to make on a 
number of die proposals by the 
committee. 

There is the proposal (he said) 
by four members of the commit- 
tee that IBA contracts should be 
awarded by a competitive 
tender with the IBA required to 
make a full public and detailed 
statement of its reasons if it 
decided to award a franchise to a 
contractor other than the one 
making the highest bid. 

The Government has reached 
no conclusion on this recom- 
mendation. However, it is anx- 
ious that the option for change 
should remain open. This would 
not be the case if the (BA 
proceeds to arrange new I TV 
contracts to take effect from the 
begining of 1990 for eight years. 

So the Government is consid- 
ering with the IBA the relation- 
ship between this timetable and 
the committee’s recommenda- 
tion. The Government does not 
propose to disturb the work 
which the IBA has in hand to 
make a contract for the pro- 
vision of direct broadcasting by 
satellite services. 

There is the question of the 
regulation of the content of 
broadcast programmes. The 
committee suggests that broad- 
cast services should be subject 
only to such regulation as is 
provided for all material in the 
general law of the land, as is the 
case for the print media, and in 
the long term there should be no 
pre-publication censorship or 
vetting of any kind of 
broadcasting. 

Present arrangements reflect 
the view that the peculiarly 
intrusive nature of broadcasting 
and in particular of televison, 
continue to require special regu- 
latory arrangements to ensure 
certain standards in broadcast 
services. 

For this reason we have 
broadcasting authorities to en- 
force controls on such matters 
as taste and decency in 
broadcasting wbich are much 
stricter than those applying to 
the print media, or than could 
easily be accommodated in the 
criminal law. 

The present regulatory regime 
and the institutions to give 
effect to them, are certainly not 
sacrosanct, but the Government 


believes that any future arrange- 
ments should be no less effective 
than those now in place. 

I have already announced the 
intention to publish a Green 
Paper looking at the existing 
framework for the provision 
and regulation of radio 
broadcasting as a whole. 

It would be helpful for this 
consultative document to exam- 
ine further services at national 
local and community level and 
that the future of BBC radio 
services and those provided by 
the IBA should be looked at in 
the light of the Peacock 
Committee’s recommendabons. 
Mr Gerald Kaufman, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
home affairs, dismissed the 
statement as a jumble of evasive 
verbiage. The report was die 
classic example of asking a silly 
question and getting the in- 
evitable silly reply except that in 
Ihis case there had not even 
been the expected silly answer. 

Even the pet solution of the 
Prime Minister, for advertising 
on the BBC , had been turned 
down. The trusted and hand- 
picked team to provide the 
required answer had failed to 
oblige. There would be a few 
empty places in the next hon- 
ours fist. 

The Labour Party rejected 
practically every one of the 
committee's conclusions, much 
of which would turn the BBC 
into the television equivalent of 
junk food or drive it into a 
cultural ghetto without the guar- 
anteed income to make plans for 
the minority audience to which 
it would be limited. 

The report was a mess as the 
Oppostion bad warned at the 
outset it would be . The forth- 
coming Labour Govememnt 
would phase out licence fees for 
all pensioners, would re-exam- 
ine the financing of the BBC and 
would ensure that this great 
national institution, inter- 
nationally respected, was not 
only preserved but was pro- 
tected from interference by gov- 
ernments of any party. 

The right place for the report 
was not the pigeon hole but the 
waste paper basket. 

Mr Hurd said the Opposition’s 
analysis of the report was well 
wide of the mark, ltwasadeeply 
depressing and backward look- 
ing approach. It showed no sign 
of understanding the immense 
range of choices which tech- 
nological change would open up 
for the customer. 

Mr Leon Brittan (Richmond, 
Yorks. C). the former Horae 
Secretary who set up the in- 
quiry. said that in spite of the 
characteristically trivial and 
dinosaur nonsense emanating 
from the Opposition this report 
amply justified the hope that 
looking at the finances of the 
BBC would lead to radical and 
imaginative proposals for the 
future of broadcasting generally. 

Although no one would ac- 
cept all the recommendations 
and in particular some of the 
short term ones, the central 
thrust of the proposals putting 
forward the concept of a BBC 


funded by subscription but 
supplemented by an Arts Coun- 
cil-like body funding those pro- 
grammes whose ratings atone 
would not keep them going- 
combined the highest possible 
degree of choice for the con- 
sumer with the central features 
of public service broadcasting 
that they had known. 

While there should be foil 
discussion of the details of the 
report, so far from it being 
something that should be pi- 
geon-holed it provided a spring- 
board for action and should not 
be a pretext for delay. 

Mr Hunt said he hoped that 
despite the initial dispiriting 
reaction of the Opposition they 
would play their part, at least as 
individuals, in a constructive 
debate on the detailed 
recommendations. 

Mr dement Freud (North East 
Cambridgeshire. L) said this 
well-documented and presented 
report showed that financial 
considerations could not be 
taken in isolation. 

We welcome (he went on) the 
rejection of advertising. We are

alarmed at the possibility of 
separating Radios / and 2 mom 
Radios 3 and 4 which might well 
turn the BBC into a cultural 
ghetto. 

There was no connection 
between broadcasting costs and 
the RPI. Would the Home 
Secretary look again carefully at 
his decision to index the TV 
licence in accordance with the 
retail price index?* 

Mr Hard said Mr Freud was 
wrong in saying that there was 
some decision about the 
indexation of the licence fee. 
This was a proposal put forward 
by Peacock. 

Sir Paul Bryan (Booth ferry, CL 
Having wisely rejected advertis- 
ing on the BBC, presumably on 
the grounds that it would lead 
Briush broadcasting down the 
road towards the American 
model, is he not surprised that 
the Peacock committee ad- 
vocated the auctioning of TV 
franchises which really leads in 
much the same direction? 

Mr Hunt Yes. The committee 
had a bit of a tussle on the 
recommendation about the 
auctioning of future IBA con- 
tracts. This will need a good deal 
of care. 


Mr Mertyn Rees (Leeds. South 
and Moriey. Lab) said to see the 
Government look on compet- 
itive tendering with approval 
was worrying. What had it in 
mind? 

Mr Hurd said that on the IBA 
franchises the IBA had ideas for 
changing the present system. 

We are in touch with the IBA 
(he continued) so that-we do not 
get into a position where we are 
locked into the existing time- 
table and find that the Govern- 
ment cannot make any effective 
changes before 1 998 because the 
machinery he specified begins to 
roll in the autumn of next year. 

We have not worked out with 
the IBA how that problem of 
liming is to be solved. I will 
need to keep the House in- 
formed about that. 

Mr Timothy Brinton 
(Gravesham, O said urgency on 
the method of allocating fran- 
chises was of paramount im- 
portance. 

Mr Hard said Mr Brinton was 
right about the urgency of 
clarifying the situation on ITV 
franchises. This would clearly be 
one of the first decisions to be 
made. 

He was a little reluctant today 
to say “Yes" to a general review 
of TV as well as of radio. 

Mr Hurd added that the Pea- 
cock Committee. though 
admirably unpartisan in almost 
all its utterances, rejected the 
Labour Party’s policy of giving a 
£325 million bribe to pensioners 
which Mr Kaufman had con- 
firmed today. 

Mr Joe Ashton (Bassetlaw, Lab) 
asked if the Government would 
accept the recommendation that 
pensioners on social security 
should get a free television 
licence paid for by a £10 tax on 
car radios so that the affluent 
would be helping poorer people. 

Mr Hurd: I am not rejecting that 
fine of approach totally today. 
But it is cosily and will need a 
lot of thought to see if anything 
worthwhile can be done. 

Sir David Price (Eastleigh C) 
said there was simply not 
enough advertising to finance 
both the BBC the IBA and the 
press. 

Mr Hard pointed out that things 
like free newspapers had sprung 
up and grown on a great deal of 
advertising which the experts 
would not have supposed 
existed. 

Mr Robert Madcnnan (Caith- 
ness and Sutherland SDP) said 
il would be quite unacceptable if 
this matter were to be kicked 
into touch until after the next 
general election. 

Mr Hurd said some of the 
recommendations of the Pea- 
cock Committee needed speedy 
decisions and others a longer 
timescale. 

Mr Peter Bnrinvels (Leicester 
East C) said £58 TV Tee was for 
loo much for what was offered 
on the BBC and it should be 
reduced not over the next two or 
three years but immediately. 
Any delay would be seen as a 
victory to the BBC. 


ZIMBABWE 


Pay premium to 
attract teachers 


EDUCATION 


The Government was prepared 
to pay a premium to mathemat- 
ics and physics teachers in short 
supply, but this was opposed by 
the National Union of Teachers 
and the Labour leadership. Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher, the Prime 
Minister, said during Commons 
questions. 

Mr Neil Khraock, the Leader of 
the Labour Rsrty, considered 
that any pay differential would 
lead to demoralization among 
other teachers. Mrs Thatcher 
said the premium was possibly 
the only way of getting the extra 
teachers needed and the Gov- 
ernment had a duty to try to 
obtain them. 

Mr Kin nock asked her Has she 
seen the admission made by the 
Secretary of Slate for Employ- 
ment that shortages of specialist 
teachers are the major con- 
straint on technical education in 
this country and shortages of 
specialist teachers in maths and 
science and technology subjects 
and in languages are now very 
serious and widespread in 
secondary schools? 

What is she going to do to 
ensure shortages in these vital 
subjects are overcome by the 
beginning of the new term in 
September? 

Mrs Thatcher: This is one of the 
matters being considered by 
Acas in the discussions about 
teachers' pay and on much 
wider matters as welL It is a/so 
being studied in Scotland. 

This Government would like, 
if need be, to get the extra 
teachers and to pay them extra 


on the grounds that if we cannot 
get maths and physics teachers 
on the present rates of pay 
because the demand for them in 
industry is so great we have a 
duty to the children to try to 
obtain these teachers. Objec- 
tions come not from this Gov- 
ernment but from the NUT. 

Mr Kinnock: Does she imagine, 
as a former Secretary of State for 
Education, that premiums to 
particular teachers in particular 
shortage subjects would be 
satisfactory as a way of reward- 
ing teachers? (Conservative 
backbenchers: Yes) 

The present feeling among 
teachers in al) subjects and in 
primary schools is that they are 
under-valued and under-paid in 
society. 

Mrs Thatcher: He is saying that 
he refuses to give permission to 
the way to get extra maths and 
physics teachers to teach the 
children? The children too have 
rights. 

Mr Kinnock: Will she take the 
advice of HM Inspectors and 
ask them whether they think the 
way to repair the great shortages 
in our education system is to 
pay premiums to particular 
teachers, with all the con- 
sequences of demoralization? Is 
not the reality that that will 
occur in other areas of the 
curriculum that are vital but not 
so subject to shortages at the 
moment? 

Mrs Thatcher: He is asking 
about the way of getting special- 
ist teachers in maths and phys- 
ics. He accepts the children need 
extra teachers. One of the ways 
of getting them - possibly the 
only effective way - is to pay a 
premium. 


Commission might act 
on airline cartels 


TRANSPORT 


The Government would pursue 
liberalization of ihe airline mar- 
ket in Europe very much more 
during Britain's presidency of 



Oppenheim: Unnecessary 
extra costs resalt 

the EEC. Mrs Thatcher, the 
Prime Minister, said during 
Commons questions when 


asked about the failure of the 
EEC states to agree on the 
matter. 

The European Commission 
might take independent action 
against airline cartels, she saicL 
Mr Phillip Oppenheim (Amber 
Valley. Cj: Will she consider the 
depressing news that most of 
our so-called EEC partners have 
decided against following our 
lead and against effective lib- 
eralization of the European 
airline market? 

Will this not result in extra 
unnecessary costs on both con- 
sumers and business and is it 
not ironic that those who are 
often fastest in deploying Euro- 
pean rhetoric are often the 
slowest to act when the interests 
of their inefferiem state-run 
airlines are at stake? 

Mra Thatcher In the absence of 
agreement of the Council the 
European Commission may 
take independent action against 
airline cartels. 

In the meantime we shall do 
our best to cany this matter 
forward and our record is good. 


Supergrass worries 


The Government was aware of 
worries in Northern Ireland 
over supergrass trials and was 
considering them. Mr Tom 
King, Secretary of State for 
Northern Ireland, said during 
Commons questioning. 

He was replying to Ms Clare 
Short (Birmingham Ladywood. 
Lab) who said that supergrass 
trials alienated the nationalist 
pulation in Northern Ireland 
m the system of justice. 


S3 


Now. in Britain, there was the 
horrifying possibility that prob- 
ably. the wrong people had been 
locked up for the Guildford and 
Birmingham bombings. 

Mr King replied that supergrass 
trials were a worry not only to 
the nationalist minority 
community. 

They caused concern because 
of the real problems over jury 
trials that were laced in a society 
where intimidation was rife.

A move to give protection to 
people who ran into financial 
difficulties and were unable to 
keep up mortgage repayments 
was unsuccessful during the 
committee stage of the Building I 
Societies Bill in the House of] 
Lords. 

An amendment, moved by’ 
Lord Houghton of Sowerby 1 
(Lab), seeking to put a duty on 
the new Building Societies 
Commission being set up under I 
the Bill to ensure protection for 
people in such circumstances 
was rejected by 1 19 votes to 8! 
— Government majority, 38. 
Lord Brahazon of Tara, a Gov- , 
eminent spokesman, resisting , 
the proposal, said it would be 1 
unfair to building society lend- 
ers to make it a duty for societies, 
to provide a social service. The 
commission was essentially in 
the business of prudent super- 
vision of building societies and 
had no control over them.

Censorship 


Protests at 
prolonged 
detention 
of Britons 


Moving by stages to 



greater 
choice for consumers 


There were strong protests in 
tire Home of Lords sit the 
continued detention withont trial 
in Zimbabwe of two British 
dozens, Phflfip Hardebmj and 
Cotin Evans, held for five years 
under regulations introduced by 
the previous Rhodesian regime 
ata tinieof emergency. 

Lord Nugent of Guildford (C) 
was cheered when he declared: It 
really is an outrage to human 
freedom that- men should be 
treated like this. 

When the Marquess of Salis- 
bury (C) asked what steps the 
Government was faking to se- 
cure the men's release. Lady 
Young, Minister of State for 
Foreign and C o mmo nw ealth Af- 
faire, replied that the British 
High Commission in Harare 
had continued to make clear to 
the Zimbabwean authorities its 
hope that Mr Hartiebmy and 
Mr Evans could be released 
soon. Their appeal against 
detention was doe to be heard on 
July 30. 

Lord Nugent of Guildford said 
the matter called for tire utmost 
influence to be used by the 
Government to get these men 
justice. 

Lady Young: I regret he should 
feel they are not befog helped. 
We have used all the influence 
we have when the Foreign 
Secretary (Sir Geoffrey Howe) 
visited Harare and there have, 
been other ministerial visits. We 
have used oar Influence there 
and the High Commission has 
made regular visits. 

It Is a matter for tire Zim- 
babwe legal system ultimately to 
determine what shall happen. I 
know there are strong feelings in 
all parts of the House on this. 
Lord Harris of Greenwich 
(SDP): If is intolerable that this 
situation continues in circum- i 
stances where there is wide- 
spread concern In all parts of the 
House. (Cheers) 

Lady Young: We are talking 
about an independent country, 
Zimbabwe. We have made 
representations and we are not 
in a position — as this is not the 
UK — to do more than make 
representations in the course of j 
justice in another independent 
country. 

Lord TordofT (Lb We have a 
doty to see that these people are 
properly represented. 

Lady Young: To the best of my 
knowledge and betiet they bare 
been property represented. 

The Marquess of Salisbury, 
pointing oof that the regulations 
were produced at a time when 
there was an emergency which 
no longer existed, added: Is this 
not an offence against human 
rights to continue in this wav. 
(Cheers) 

Lady Young: The regulations by 
the former 'RhodeSiad regime 
were produced at a time when 
the situation was not as it is 
today is Zimbabwe. Whether 
these regulations are repealed is 
a matter for that government.

The 2 1 9-page report lists 1 8 
recommendations for the first 

of three stages of deregulating 
the industry' — with a start 
being made by . January 
1988 - and of creating a free 
market system dictated by the 
consumer. 

The goal of the evolutionary 
strategy, is defined _ as “a 
system which recognizes that 
viewers and listeners are the 
best ultimate judges of their 
own interest, which they can 
best satisfy if they have the 
option of purchasing the 
broadcasting services they re- 
quire from as many alterna- 
tive sources of supply as 
possible’*. 

The Committee concluded 
that for the time being, BBC 
TV should not be forced to 
accept advertising and that the 
licence fee should be indexed 
to inflation. 


a firee-markei system would be 
to adapt television sets for 
direct subscription, which- in 
turn would replace the licence 
fee during stage two in the late 
1990s. 

The final stage in the twen- 
ty-first century would intro- 
duce an era of “electronic 
publishing", m which con- 
sumers would buy packages of 
programmes in much the way 
dial they buy newspapers. 

A key provision is that the 
free market should be supple- 
merited by a subsidized public 
service network, administered 
bv a new Broadcasting Coun- 
cil, to provide programmes of 
minority or specialist interest 
with the accent on “knowl- 
edge, culture, criticism and 
experiment”.

THE FINDINGS 


Strains of sharing airwaves 


The committee's mam find- 
ings are: 

1. The BBC has tun into 
problems because the buoyan- 
cy of licence revenue arising 
from the transition to colour 
television has come to an end. 

2. Much of the unpopularity 
of the licence fee arises from 
fee a mum I lump sum payment 
and fee harden it inOiets. on 
the poor, many of -whom 
depend on TV for information 
and entertainment. 

3. Both the BBC and ITV 
have suffered from cost and 


efficiency problems arising 
from their “comfortable 
duopoly". 

4. This shared supremacy is 
threatened by die development 
of satellite, cable and video 
systems. 

5. Channel Four has intro- 
duced a new breed of indepen- 
dent producers, whose 
potential for increasing com- 
petition is constrained by then- 
limited market and virtual 
dependence on a monopoly 
buyer. 

6. The technology exists for 


direct subscription, and its 
cost would be reduced if all 
new TV sets were equipped 
with it 

7. Opinion poDs show a 
public willingness to pay di- 
rectly for BBC services. 

8. Independent radio sta- • 
tious are in financial trouble 
because of increasiiq* competi- 
tion for advertisiig, notably 
from commercial breakfast 
television and free newspn- ' 
pers, and there are no signs - 
that their situation will 
improve. 


THE FEE 


Keeping politics 
at arm’s length 


The licence foe: -Pending a 
system of direct subscription, 
the licence fee should be 
linked to the Retail Price 
Index from its next review in 
1988, from a basis of £60 on 
April I next year. The Com- 
mittee drew attention to fee 
political implications of fee 
BBCs dependence on the 
transmission of licence fees 
through government in the 
form of annual grants. 

“One of fee most important 
arguments for indexation is 
that it would bring a measure 
of insulation of the BBC from 
political influence. The evi- 
dence suggests that fee need to 
renegotiate the licence fee 
does at least occasionally in- 
fluence the Corporation, both 
in its general policies and its 
auitude to particular . pro- 
gramme suggestions. 

“It would indeed be aston- 
ishing if be who paid fee piper 
did not occasionally hint at 
fee tune; and it would be 
equally astonishing if the pip- 
er did not occasionally antici- 
pate his- paymaster's calls. 
Indexation will not eliminate 
the paymaster relationship, 
but will put it more at arm’s 
length." 

The Committee . also sug- 
gested that indexation would 
pul pressure on the BBC to 
exploit its revenue-earning po- 
tential more forcefully, and 
“to think more carefully be- 


fore embarking on peripheral 
activities far removed from its 
core obligations'*. 

Payment of the fee The 
once-a-year lump sum pay- 
ment is clearly unpopular wife 
some viewers, especially those 
on lower incomes. Among 
alternative suggestions by fee 
BBC, the Committee favoured 
methods such as a surcharge 
on electricity bills where pay- 
ment would be staggered to at 
least once a quarter and the. 
onus would be on the small 
minority of non-TV owners 
(2 per cent of all household- 
ers) to apply for exemption. 

The relatively low cost of a 
monochrome licence, al 
present £18, encourages eva- 
sion in feat many people buy 
one for a colour seL Therefore, 
fee monochrome fee should 
be brought closer to the £58 
colour licence. 

Collection of the fee: The 
Post Office responsibility for 
this service should be trans- 
ferred to fee BBC, as the 
organization wife the greatest 
interest in its efficiency, which 
would, put collection out to 
tender. 

That might be attractive to 
authorities with computerized 
mailing lists, such as fee 
Electricity Board. Inland Rev- 
enue or Water Board, or TV 
rental companies, and viewers 
might be given a choice of 
methods.

King wants swift conclusion of RUC inquiry 


STALKER CASE 

Notwithstanding events in Man- 
duster, Mr Tom King, Sec- 
retary of State for Northern 
Ireland, made dear in the 
Commons that be was anxious 
for the inquiry into allegations 
about an RUC sboot-to-UU 
policy now being handled by Mr 
Colin Sampson, Chief Constable 
of West Yorkshire, to proceed as 
expeditiously as possible. 

He explained daring question 
feat fee terms of reference 
of the inquiry begun under Mr 
John Stalker. Deputy Chief 
Constable of Greater Manches- 
ter, were a matter for the Chief 
Constable of the RUC but he 
understood there had been no 
change on the appointment of 
Mr Sampson. 

At oue stage he declared: 1 am 
anxious to see the RUC inquiry 
completed at the earliest 
posisible date. I would be anx- 
ious to see no delay and the 


matter pressed on wife no bold- 


sr 


r Michael Meadowcroft 
(Leeds West, L) wondered if it 
was possible for Mr Stalker to 
be put back on to the inquiry in 
Northern Ireland once the whole 
disciplinary action in Manches- 
ter was resolved. 

Mr King explained that the 
decision to appoint Mr Sampson 
was taken by the Chief Con- 
stable of the RUC but only after 
consultation with HM Chief 
Inspector of Constabulary and 
fee Attorney GeneraL 

My own concern (he went on) 
is that this matter should now be 
pursued as vigorously as pos- 
sible, the facts established, and 
if charges are to be brought. they 
should be broHght at fee earliest 
possible date. 

At the moment we have 
innuendo and rumour affecting 
matters that happened in 1983, 
four years ago, mm this is 
undoubtedly doing dam age to a 
force of outstandingly brave men 
who are seeking impartially to 


uphold law and order hi fee 
province. 

Mr Douglas Hogg (Grantham, 
C)\ Should we pot be makjqg 
inquiries to ascertain whether 
anyone in the province was in 
any way responsible for the 
lodging of complaints against 
Mr Stalker? If so, what steps are 
being taken to ascertain the 
facts? 

Mr Kinp I have no evidence that 
that is the case. Iff this respect 
the matter is not for me. If there 
were any evidence Of that kind it 
would come to light in fee 
further inquiry Mr Sampson is 
conducting. 

Mr Seamus Mallon (Newry and 
Armagh. SDLP) said fee 
appointment of Mr Sampson to 
continue the Stalker inquiry and 
the inquiry into Mr Stalk er’s 
activities in Britain must in- 
evitably cause farther delay. 
Would the minister meet the 
Greater Manchester Police 
Authority to bear then disquiet 
about delay? 

Mr King: But Mr Stalker was. 


not acting alone. He had a team

remained in place and is report- 
ing to Mr Sampson. So that 
matter is being carried forward 
without delay. The suggestion 
that h should be delayed is very 
unsatisfactory. It must be car- 
ried through as promptly as 

possible. 

Mr Cecil Franks (Barrow and 
Fnrness, C): It is just not 
possible to isolate fee Stalker 
inquiry in Northern Ireland 
from the current inquiry into Mr 
Stalker himself, which inhibits 
comment on the Stalker inquiry 
and what is supposed to be iu fee 
interim report. 

Has feme been any indication 
from the West Yorkshire police 
about how Iona their inquiry into 
Mr Stalker will continue? That 
inquiry should be concluded 
before the House goes into hs 
summer recess. 

Mr King I cannot comment on 
the interim report which Mr 
Stalker had submitted to fee 
Chief Constable and which is 
now in the bauds of the DPP of

Mr Peter Archer, chief Oppo- , 
sition spokesman on Northern 
Ireland, said there had been 
widespread and damaging 
speculation and if no answers 
were given to certain questions, 
people were bound to guess at 
them. 

Why was it anncounced that 
Mr Stalker was removed from 
fee RUC inquiry before fee 
complaint yud him hud been 
investigated and presumably. 
Irrespective of the outcome? 
Was not the appointment of Mr 
Sampson both to fee inquiry into 
the conduct of Mr Stalker mid to

bound to delay one or the other? 
Mr King: I think the House win

son will pursue this vigorously.

CENSORSHIP 

Vetting of 
obscenity 
and sex 
ruled out 

On censorship, the Peacock 
Committee said that it was 
aware of public concern about 
excesses of violence and sex 
on television. - - • - 

However, pre-broadcasting 
censorship and vetting of any 
kind should be abolished, and 
the “normal laws of the land" 
relating to obscenity and simi- 
lar matters be extended , to 
cover broadcasting. 

At present the Obscene 
Publications Act 1959 does' 
not apply to the broadcast 
media since it is held that 
current regulation, which fee 
committee wants to phaseout, 
achieves a similar purpose. 

“The end of all censorship 
arrangements would be a sign 
that broadcasting had come of 
age. like publishing three cen- 
turies aga 

“Pre-publication censor- 
ship, whether of printed mate- 
rial plays, films, broadcasting ■ 
or other creative activies or 
expressions of opinion, has no . 
place in a free society. • - 
“We would want to advise . 
government and Parliament 
to embark forthwith on a 
phased programme for ending 
iL" 

On proposals for 24-hour 
television, the committee said . 
that unused night hours 1 1 ■am . 
to 6 am) could be. sold and 
used to transmit programmes 
for video recording, to pro- 
vide some of the benefits of 
additional channels. 

The BBC and .Independent 
Broadcasting Authority would 
have first claim orn these 
wavelengths, but only for- 
special occasions such as J 
elections. 

The- committee, said., there 
was a case for establishing, a. 
common authority in. fee 
1990s to take over the trans- 
mission responsibilities of 
both the BBC and fee IBA and

raises issues that go for beyond the

— Professor Alan Peacock ! 


Report cf the Committee on Financing the BBC (Stationery 
Office. £10.80) ■ 


Mr Hetherington reserved 
his sharpest criticism for the 
recommendation on BBC Ra- 
dios One and Two by five 
members of the Committee: 
“Nobody 1ms thought oat ex- 
actly what would be sold. Yon 
can’t sell Jimmy Yonng even if 
yoa wanted to.” 

He was supported by Miss 
Judith Chalmers, the TV and 
radio presenter, who said that 
sel l ing the two radios would 
weaken the BBC radio net- 
work as a whole and threaten 
independent local radios al- 
ready hi financial difficulties. 

Mr Hetherington also took 
issue with the recommenda- 
tion by four members that all 
ITV franchises should be auc- 
tioned to the highest bidder “I 
think it is unworkable, be- 
cause it would be difficult to 
j choose between a company 
! with a long and good record of 
programming aim one with no 
track record in television but 
plenty of money. 

“It wonld also be extremely 
difficult for the IBA to enforce 
minimum requirements on a 
contractor.” . 

Chi this occasion he was 
opposed by Mr Samnel 
Brittan, Assistant Editor of 
the Financial Times , who said

reorganization

Professor Alan Peacock, who chaired the inquiry, with Judith Chalmers, a member of the 
committee, at Lancaster House yesterday after publication (Photograph: Bill Warhurst). 


that be was strongly in favour 
of selling the franchises. 

“The byzantine process by 
which the IBA go info a huddle 
and decide that company X 
should be given the franchise 
is indefensible. It embodies 
everything I dislike about 
British corporatism, the cosy 
face-to-face establishment do- 
ing tilings by nods and winks 
rather than by due process.” 

For good measure, Mr 
Brittan added: “The present 
cosy IBA system is the root of 
cost inflation in 
broadcasting.'" 

Mr Hetfaeringfoo apparent- 
ly agreed with Professor Pea- 
cock, the chairman, on the 
recommendation that both 
BBC and ITV should be 
required to take at least 
40 per cent of their pro- 
grammes from independent 
producers. 

Responding to a suggestion 
from a television correspon- 
dent that there may not be 
sufficient quality production 
from independent sources, and 
that enforcing such a proposal 


coaid lead to redundancies, 
Mr Peacock said: “At least 
you should be encouraging 
entry into the programme 
market. The BBC says the 
quality of the independent 
producers is not good enough. 
1 believe it is up to the viewers 
to deckle.” 

Mr Hetherington added: “If 
it leads to redundancies, that 
might not be a bad thing. I 
think it’s a very good stimulus 
for better programme making 
and greater efficiency.” 

Differences of view emerged 
again in response to a question 
on the long-term future of the 
BBC. Everybody was quite 
dear that this was not at all 
dear — accurate predictions 
were impossible. 

Mr Hardie saw the' corp- 
oration's share of the overall 
television market shrinking 
considerably, but it would 
continue to maintain high 
quality standards. 

Mr Hetherington said that 
he believed the BBC would 
become the biggest single 
provider of televison pro- 


grammes in Britain, although 
it wonld “have to tidy itself np 
if it wants to survive.” 

Miss Chalmers said h 
should be In a strong position 
in the twenty-first century; Mr 
Brittan believed it would have 
more freedom and flexibility, 
but Lord Quinton, the Presi- 
dent of Trinity College, Ox- 
ford, saw it foensing on public 
service broadcasting. 


Professor Peacock took a 
middle view, saying: “The 
BBC has a marvellous oppor- 
tunity to do tilings they're 
good at” 

In spite of the apparent 
differences of opinion, the 
Committee yesterday (minus 


Sir Peter Reynolds, a business 
executive, who sent his apolo- 
gies) agreed that its report 
shonld be taken seriously by 
the Government. 

Professor Peacock said: 
“My conviction is that this 
report cannot be shelved, in 
the sense that the issoes 50 for

ests of this Government.” 


TECHNOLOGY 


ADVERTISING 


ITV FRANCHISES 


Viewing 

without 

frontiers 


Proposal would limit choice Cost - quality conflict 


To prepare for subscription 
services in a world of “televi- 
sion without frontiers”, all 
new television sets should 
have a special socket and as- 
sociated electronics. 

Some 18 per cent of sets 
now being sold in the United 
Kingdom already have them. 
The cost is estimated at £25, 
but viewers would also need a 
decoder to plug into the socket 
and this was likely to cost a 
further £50. 

Subscription would eventu- 
ally replace the licence fee as 
the main source of BBC in- 
come — an estimated 75 to 80 
per cent of viewers are expect- 
ed to make the switch - while 
ITV would continue to de- 
pend on advertising. 

However, if it wished to do 
so. the BBC could finance 
some of its operations by 
advertising and the ITV com- 
panies could sell some of their 
programmes by subscription. 


Advertisements should not 
be introduced into the BBC 
because it would not benefit 
viewers or listeners, the Com- 
mittee concluded. 

In spite of an estimated 
growth in future advertising 
revenues, the move was reject- 
ed because it would diminish 


difficult for them to meet IBA 
requirements. 

“The result could be an 
inadequate supply of prog- 
rammes . . . which do not 
achieve top audience ratings.” 

One consequence of not 
introducing advertising to 
BBC Television was that a 


the satisfaction and range of projected growth in advertis- 


ed system will lead to pro- 
gramme diversity only to the 
extent that different advertis- 
ers are willing to pay to 
associate their messages with 
different programmes . . . 

The commercial viability of 
a programme in such a system 
depended upon it command- 


choice available to viewers 
and listeners. 

“The main defect of a 
system based on -advertising 
finance is that channel owners 
do not sell programmes to 
audiences, but audiences to 


ing revenue in real terms 
would provide additional fi- 
nance for cable and satellite 
technology.

advertising. 

For example, a station 
could be forced to broadcast a 
comedy programme with 10 
million viewers at the expense 
of an arts programme that had 
only 6 million viewers. Nev- 
ertheless, some keen arts en- 
thusiasts might be prepared to 
pay considerably more for 
their programme than others 
for the comedy show. 

“The proposition illustrated 
by this example is that an 
advertising-supported system 
aims 10 maximize advertising 
revenues, so that the pro- 
grammes which are presented 
would not necessarily reflect 
true viewer preferences as 
given by their willingness to 
pay." 


This was the most conten- 
tious issue facing the Commit- 
tee. Four of its members 
recommended that they be put 
on the market, on the grounds 
that the present discretionary 
allocation by the Independent 
Broadcasting Authority did 
not offer sufficient incentive 
to economize on costs. 

The IBA could award a 
contract to a lower bidder if it 
believed it to be offering better 
value for money in public 
service terms, but it would 
have to make a public’ and 
detailed statement of its rea- 
sons, it was suggested. 

Three members feared that 


the cure would be worse than 
the disease. The Committee 
said that the proposal required 
further discussion. 

It would be very concerned 
if the quality of service were to 
be reduced, and would still 
expert the IBA to lay down 
minimum criteria. 

There was no dissent on a 
supplementary proposal for ! 
annual reviews to be based on 
a soccer-style “yellow card” 
and “red card” system. The 
first would warn a contractor 
that the required standards 
were not being met, and the 
second, a year later, would 
entail loss of the franchise 


The broadcasting industry 
reacted with varying degrees 
of caution and hostility to the 
Peacock Committee's vision 
of a radically new world of 
radio and television. 

Diplomatic statements 
from the BBC and the Inde- 
pendent Broadcasting Author- 
ity welcomed its conclusion 
that the Corporation should 
not be obliged to accept 
advertising. 

However Mr Stuart Young, 
Chairman of the BBC, and Mr 
Alasdair Milne, its Director- 
General, expressed, respec- 
tively, reservations about 
suggestions for increasing the 
licence fee and concern about 
the dangers of an “over- 
eagerness” to sweep away 
existing regulations. 

The IBA reserved judge- 
ment on the report’s other 
main recommendations — 
notably for putting up inde- 
pendent TV franchises for 
auction — but Mr David 
Plowright, Chairman of the 
ITV Companies Association, 
denounced that proposal. 

Mr Young recalled that the 
BBC had been pressing for 
easier ways of paying the 
licence fee, and he was pleased 
that the Committee had taken 
up that theme. 

“I am also glad to see that it 
proposes that the BBC will 
have direct involvement in 
collecting the licence fee- We 
do not. however, believe the 
Retail Price Index is the 
appropriate indicator of those 
costs, but we shall continue to 
help in the search for a 
workable formula.” 

Car radio fee 

Mr Milne was convinced 
that the licence fee system 
remained the best method of 
funding the Corporation for 
the foreseeable future: “We 
shall now begin to work out 
what we can offer the public 
during the next licence fee 
period, from April 1988.” 

The BBC would also be 
discussing with the Home 
Office the Peacock suggestions 
on car radio licences, a higher 
fee for black and white view- 
ing. and on relief for the 
needy. 

Mr Milne was less enthusi- 
astic about the recommenda- 
tion that the BBC and ITV 
should be required to accept at 
least 40 per cent of pro- 
grammes from independent 
producers. 

“The independent sector is 
growing and will continue to 
grow with our active support. 
However, much programme 
making, for example, news, 
current affairs and sport, is 
unlikely ever to lend itself to 
this type of production. As an 
overall figure, therefore, 
40 per cent seems unrealisti- 
cally high,” he said. 

He was not impressed with 
the Committee’s split vote in 
favour of selling off BBC 
Radios One and Two: “It 
remains our policy to try to 
offer an effective range of 
programmes to all sections of 


the public. We believe, there- 
fore. that Radio One and Two 


to a share of the BBC licence 
fee as do the listeners to 
Radios Three and Four.” 

He welcomed the an- * 
nouncement that Mr Douglas - 
Hurd, the Home Secretary, is . 
10 produce a Green Paper on 
all radio issues. 

Mr Milne reserved his i 
sharpest criticism for the : 
Committee’s broad strategy of ■ 


step-by-step deregulation. 

“All of us are in favour 01 
more programme choice for 
ihe public. Nevertheless there 
is the clear danger of an over- 
eagerness to deregulate, and to 
dismantle existing structures. 

“If the reliable supply of 
good programmes is jeopar- 
dized. we all run the risk of 
being deprived as viewers and 
listeners of what we enjoy and 
appreciate — in effect having 
less real choice, not more, and 
probably at higher cost.” 


Standards fear 

A brief IBA statement said . 
that advertising on BBC Ra- 
dio in its present form would 
seriously damage the viability 
of independent local radio. 
Many of the Committee's 
ideas would have wide-rang- 
ing implications for indepen- 
dent broadcasting, and the 
IBA would make its detailed 
views known when it had fully 
considered the report. 

The Authority’ made no . 
reference to the controversial 
proposal on selling ITV fran- 
chises. but its executives are 
known to oppose the idea. 

Mr Plowright, whose associ- 
ation represents all the ITV 
companies, said: “A majority . 
of the Committee appear to 
have shown scant concern for 
programme standards by ad- 
vancing the notion that ITV , 
contracts should be put up for 
auction. A tendering system 
would lead inexorably to- 
wards a concentration on 
profit performance rather 
than programme 

performance.” 

The result would be fewer 
programmes from regional 
centres, fewer information 
and education programmes, 
and an excess of entertain- 
ment shows 


Channel Four call 

Mr Plowright was equally 
opposed to the suggestion that 
Channel Four might sell its 
own advertising: “If Channel 
Four had to accept the costs of 
collecting its own advertising 
revenue and financing its own 
service, the type of pro- 
grammes it offers would 
change towards majority 
interests. 

“The result would be that 
Channel 4 would mirror ITV 
and BBC-1. There would be 
no widening of choice, simply 
more of the same." 

The proposal to increase 
substantially independent 
production on ITV would 
distort the balance of regional 
services.

The Committee had diffi- 
culty over whether to propose 
any alleviation for pensioners, 
and would prefer cash aid to 
the poot for them to spend as 
they wish. 

Its recommendation that 
elderly people drawing supple- 
mentary pension in house- 
holds wholly dependent on a 
pension should be exempt 
from the licence fee, was made 
on the strict understanding 
that it did not extend to all 
pensioners. 

According to the latest sta- 
tistics there are 1.6 million 
people on supplementary pen- 
sions. although not all are 
from households dependent 
on it. 

The allowance for registered 
blind people, who now receive 
a reduction of £1.25. should be 
revised.

Local radio: A number of Bri- 
tain’s 48 independent local 
radios are in financial trouble, 
largely because of increasing 
competition for advertising 
and there are no signs of future 
^improvement. Two have 
dosed in the past two years, 
and others have merged. 

The Committee recom- 
mends that IBA regulation 
should be relaxed, and sug- 
gests that some independent 
radios could merge with BBC 
radios. 

One approach would be to 
allow the BBC to take over 
ailing ILR stations at a negoti- 
ated price; and the stronger 
ILR stations to buy out any 
radio the-BBC was prepared to 
sell: an added incentive could 
be a retmirement that the BBC 
must onset every purchase by 
a sale. Once merged, stations 
must be allowed to take

of BBC expenditure. The

eral licence, but it would be 
feasible to do so for car radios. 

To minimize complication 
and evasion, a minimum £10 
licence should be charged on 
all cars fitted for radio, and it 
might be simplest to charge a 
once-oniy fee when the car is 
registered. The proceeds 
should be used to reduce the 


and out of a regional support 
service. 

Care should be taken that 
mergers do not destroy local 
services. For example, a sta- 
tion formed by the merger of a 
music-based independent ra- 
dio and a speech-based BBC 
radio should cater for these 
different interests. 


The National Union of 
Journalists dismissed the Pea- 
cock report as “a jumble of 
right-wing prejudices spiced 
with pie-in-the-sky predic- 
tions about the technology of 
the future”. 

Mr Harry Conroy, the Gen- 
eral Secretary, said it had 
felled to answer the challenge 
posed by cable and satellite 
systems, or to ensure that the 
broadcasting industry repre- 
sented viewers and listeners. 
Any sale of BBC Radios 1 and 
2 would mean tbe end of 
commercial local radio. 

It was remarkable, he said, 
that even a “rigged” commit- 
tee, packed with free- 
marketeers and government 
sympathizers, had been un- 
able to meet Mrs Thatcher's 
demand for the licence fee to 
be replaced by advertising, 

“Peacock claims that his 
proposals will put viewers and 
listeners in the driving seat. In 
fact, bis proposals for a com- 
mercial free-for-all, with the 
highest bidder always win- 
ning. would simply put broad- 
casting into the hands of the 
media barons who already 
control so much of the primed 
word.” 

Mr Alan Sapper, General 
Secretary of the Association of 
Cinematograph and Allied 
Technicians, said there was 
room for improvement in the 
broadcasting system and espe- 
cially for more democratic 
control. 

However the proposal 'on 
greater independent produc- 
tion. would threaten up to 
50.000 redundancies in the 
BBC and ITV networks. 

Radio Luxembourg said it 
did not think there was much 
wrong with the BBC that a 
good financial manager could 
not cure, and there was not 
enough wrong with the 
present system to require dra- 
matic change.

Chilean military 

down ruthlessly on 
two-day general strike 

From Lake Sagans, Santiago 


THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 4 1986 


OVERSEAS NEWS 


Chiles military Govern- 
ment has responded harshly to 
a two-day general strike that 
ended yesterday, and which 
was organized by the National 
Assembly of Civil Society, the 

Son. *"*" 0pPOSllion 

. The Interior Ministry has 
17 of the 22-member 
NACS national council with 
violating state security laws. 

The authorities also banned 
the news broadcasts of four 
radio stations often critical of 
the 13-year-oid military Gov- 
ernrneni. Among them are 
Chile s most popular station. 
Radio Co-operativa. 

Government lawyers said 
they would file charges against 
“some communications me- 
dia and columnists of the 
press who, in some way 
through their articles, called 
on people to participate". 

The two-day work stoppage 
was called by the NACS a 
month ago, after the Govern- 
ment failed io respond to a list 
of demands, which included a 
rapid return to democracy. 

The strike began early on 
Wednesday, with few buses 


From Lake Sagarin, Santiago 

and taxis on the roads, and 
high absenteeism at schools, 
hospitals and in workplaces. 
Most stores did not open, or 
closed early. Santiago was 
virtually deserted by 9 pm. 

Demonstrations at noon in 
Santiago and other big cities 
were harshly repressed by 
police. Military patrols have 
been implicated in the death 
of two people. A third person 
was shot by unidentified 
civilians. 

Witnesses say a soldier shot 
and killed 13-year-old Nadia 
Fuenies when she went out to 
buy bread on Wednesday 
morning. 

Night after night truckloads 
of troops moved into the vast, 
poor areas that ring Santiago, 
helicopters circled, and the 
sound of gunfire could be 
beard in most parts of the city. 
At least 20 people received 
bullet wounds. 

Two university students are 
in a grave condition, with 
serious bums, after being 
found on an isolated road. 
Senor AndnSs Dominguez, of 
-the Chilean Human Rights 
Commission, said they were 


injured after being arrested by 
a military patrol. 

The Army has denied that 
soldiers deliberately burned 
the students. The government 
has announced an official 
investigation. 

Throughout the two days 
and nights bombs went off in 
Santiago and other cities. On 
Wednesday night there was a 
blackout in much of the 
country after power lines were 
bombed. 

The NACS president. Dr 
Juan Luis Gonzalez, deplored 
the use of violence to repress 
peaceful demonstrations. 

He called on security forces 
to end the “fratricidal con- 
frontation which is decimat- 
ing our people". 

The strike had been success- 
ful beyond the organizers’ 
hopes and “this must increase 
our faith in our legitimate 
right' to continue”.

iles here invaded the Chilean 
consulate-general for two 
hours in protest at the militaiy 
regime (Reuter reports). 


Optimism 
on summit 
by Reagan 

From Mohsm All 
Washington 

President Reagan has said 
. that correspondence with Mr 
■ Mikhail Gorbachov, the Sovi- 
» et leader, makes him oplimis- 
; 'lie that they will hold a 
• summit meeting this year. 
The President in an inter- 
view yesterday in USA Today* 
made dear that no dale had 
been set so far. 

He said he was preparing a 
1 reply to Mr Gorbachov’s 
“worthwhile” letter to him 
: last week, m which the Soviet 
leader made additional pro- 
j>osa]s not only on arms 
control but on . regional con- 
. flicts, human rights and 
immigration. 

The President observing 
that this had “opened addi- 
tional doors”, said: “Jtmakes 
jne optimistic that we’re not 
only going to have a summit 
but that we're going to have a 
summit where we can reach 
agreement on some of the 
goals we share ..." 

He added .that “now we 
have reason to believe a 
meeting is possible" between 
Mr George Shultz and Mr 
Eduard Shevardnadze, the US 
and Soviet Foreign Ministers, 
to prepare for a summit 

Weizsacker in 
twin city 
of Cardiff 

President Richard von 
Weizsacker of West Germany

which is twinned with his 
home city of Stuttgart (Patri- 
cia Gough writes). 

He met representatives of 
26 Welsh towns twinned with 
West German towns and visit-

Lebanese unite to 
condemn misery 

From Robert Fisk, Beirut 

The gunman in jeans and and broadcast a short idea ti- 


biae denim jacket stood in the 
middle of Hamra Street yes- 
terday, just outside the Leba- 
nese Minis toy of Information. 

The soldiers beside him 
were Lebanese. But he was a 
Syrian, a tail, bored security 
policeman with a bushy mous- 
tache and an automatic rifle 
dang ling nonchalantly from 
his right hand, moving from 
car to car like a tired golfer 
walking the fairway. 

Each driver was ordered to 
open the boot of his vehicle. 
Each did as he was told. Every 
morning paper had talked 
about security, and yesterday 
morning the Syrians were very 
definitely In charge. 

Aimost 100 Lebanese have 
been arrested over the past 
three days for carrying weap- 
ons. Nearly every militia office

the people to protest “against 
war and famine”. It was an 
extraordinary, unprecedented 
event in Lebanon. 

Even the Christian Voice of 
Lebanon radio station — that 
island of Christian individual- 
ism amid the sea of Islam (for 
so it would wish to be seen) — 
called mi citizens to return 
their country to health and to 
“its leading role in the Arab 
and international family”. 

Could it work, this new 
unity and demonstration of 
protest? Inflation is now run- 
ning at about 20 per cent a 
month. More to the point, for 
the militia, is the rising cost of 
ammunition. 

A year ago, a single ballet

“They tinned up like we 
expected.” ■ a middle-aged 
Druze official said. “They 
found some old socks and 
some shoes in my office. We 
are obeying the roles.” 

Or so it seemed. In west 
Beirut - in fact, in all Lebanon 
save Israel’s occupation zone 
in the south — the population 
had gone on strike throughout 
the day in protest at their own 
domestic war and at their 
personal poverty, brought 
about by the very same inter- 
nal conflict which they had so 
long bewailed yet tolerated. 

For the first time in years, 
Christians and Muslims 
joined in condemning the mis- 
ery of their broken country. 

Even the rival militia radio 
stations, more used to abasing 
each other than speaking with 
a single voice, cancelled their 
programmes for 20 minutes

The Syrians, who are 
pleased at the general strike, 
would like to make it so. 
Perhaps that is the plan. 
Bread has risen 150 per cent in 
two months.

those Syrian gunmen - and 
even the Palestinian camps

A sale of rather stale vegeta- 
bles beside the Sabra camp 
ami in the Shia district of 
Basta, were the only evidence 
of strike breaking, a lack of 
solidarity easily explainable 
amid the fear of hunger.

Bomb blast in Cape Town 


From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

South Africa yesterday suf- 
fered its 11th urban bomb 
incident since the state of 
emergency was declared on 
June 12. Three people have 
been killed and 101 injured in 
these attacks, most of them 
whites. 

Meanwhile, the police an- 
nounced that they had arrest- 
ed four suspected members of 
the outlawed African National 
Congress (ANC) near Pretoria 
yesterday. The men were being 
questioned about an attack on 
the home of a black policeman 
on June 11 and a landmine 
explosion on June 26. 

The latest explosion oc- 
curred outside a police station 
in Mowbray, a white suburb of 
Cape Town, yesterday morn- 
ing. A white policeman. Con- 
stable Andries Thompson, and 
a young policewoman, also 
white, whose name has not yet 
been disclosed, were injured.

Trade squeeze

a special licence to trade with 
South Africa from July 15 (AP 
reports from Helsinki). 

for Information in Pretoria, 
the only source of official news 
on the incident, described their 
injuries as “slight” 

On the economic front the 
South African Finance Minis- 
ter, Mr Barend du Plessis, has 
confirmed that Pretoria 
“would have (o consider not 
repaying its international 
loans if the country were to be 
placed in an intolerable 
situation” by sanctions. 

Mr du Plessis's statement 
was intended to calm the 
alarm caused among foreign 
bankers by remarks made to 
the House of Commons For- 
eign Affairs Committee last 
Tuesday by Dr Denis WorraU, 
the South African Ambassa- 


dor to Britain. In fact, it 
merely re-stated Dr Worrell's 
comments in more diplomatic 
language. 

“I do not say it wiU happen, 
but if there were sanctions on 
the scale indicated by the 
(Commonwealth) Eminent 
Persons Group, then Sonth 
Africa certainly wonld consid- 
er not repaying its internation- 
al loans. All Mexico and a few 
others need is a precedent and 
it wonld bring down the whole 
Western financial system,” Dr 
Worrell was quoted here as 
telling the committee. 

Mr dn Plessis said that Dr 
Worrell had not been making 
a threat of retaliation but had 
merely pointed out that a 
country “prevented from ex- 
porting will obviously not be 
able to earn foreign exchange 
required for meeting its other 
financial commitments”. 

Up to now, be added. South 
Africa had “scrofpnlonsly com- 
plied with all the obligations” 
it had accepted

Brussels (Reuter) — Most 
Europeans back the plan for a 
Channel tunnel linking Brit-

The poll, conducted in 12

ITS MORE LIKE

It’s a lovely word, browse. 

But hardly one you’d associate with the duty free area 
on a cross channel feuy. 

Endless (as in queue), aching (as in feet) and chocka (as 
in block) spring more readily to mind. 

Unless, that is, you’ve been lucky enough to have 
sailed with Sealink recently from Dover to Calais. 

For our ships on this route, the St Christopher and 
St Anselm, have had their duty free areas completely re-built 

They're now four rimes as big. 

They carry a far wider range of goods. 


And because they’ve been designed along the lines of 
first class department store, shopping is a positive pleasure. 

A duty free from hassle and haste in fact 

These aren't the only changes you’ll notice, either: 
Since Sealink became a private company, we’ve spent a lot < 
money re-building and refurbishing our ships. 

And a lot of time re-training our crews. 

Because without their goodwill, we can hardly exj 
yours. And without yours, we really would be sunk.

Concessions expected in 
Poland as Jaruzelski 
bolsters party position 


The Polish leader. General 
Wojciech Jaruzelski, has 
emerged from this week's 
Communist Party congress 
more firmly in control of the 
party and, now that he has 
earned explicit Kremlin ap- 
proval. may well make a 
number of important conces- 
sions to the people and the 
Roman Catholic Church. 

That is the view of 
Jaruzelski supporters and, 
even if one discounts a ten- 
dency to overrate the general, 
it appears to be an accurate 
analysis. 

The results of the Central 
Committee balloting on Wed- 
nesday night were still secret 
yesterday, but party leaks 
indicated that the complection 
of the new body was more 
obviously in the Jaruzelski 
image: skilled workers, man- 
agers, academic economists, 
professional party organizers, 
military and police candidates 
were all on the way up. 

The Politburo line-up will 
lose such figures as the rela- 
tively liberal sociologist. Mr 
Hieronim Kubiak. and will 
probably see the Interior Min- 
ister. General Czeslaw 
Kiszczak — a close ally of 
General Jaruzelski — move up 
from alternate to full Politbu- 
ro membership. 

The question of how to 
restore faith in the Commu- 
nist Party was reduced at the 
congress to the question of 
how to achieve better econom- 
ic results for the country. 

A successful economy and 
better living standards will 
give strength to the debilitated 
party: that is the diagnosis of 
the Jaruzelski loyalists, and it 
was never seriously doubted 
during the congress debates. 

There was no hardline chal- 


From Roger Boyes, Warsaw 

lenge to the general though 
there were predictable attacks 
on private business — because 
his managers had anticipated 
all lines of criticism. 

Church-state relations had 
been more or less on ice in the 
months preceding the con- 
gress. so hardliners could not 
criticize him for being soft on 
Catholics. 

The general himself led the 
criticism of the economy, and 
in so doing stole the clothes of 
his dogmatic opponents. 

He was tough on the West. 



General Jaruzelski: a lot 
of room for manoeuvre. 


and the recent weeks of publi- 
cized police successes — the 
arresL for example, of the 
Solidarity leader, Mr Zbig- 
niew Bujak — have shown that 
he is not neglecting law and 
order. 

Mr Mikhail Gorbachov's 
flattery of General Jaruzelski 
— sharp political vision, cour- 
age and so on — made it quite 
clear that the Soviet Union is 
not cultivating a rival. But this 
statement of trust also trans- 
fers some responsibility on to 
the shoulders of the current 
party leadership. 


It is no longer enough, say 
the more active reformers, to 
justify timidity in political or 
economic reform by pointing 
eastwards and explaining that 
Moscow might disapprove. 
The general nas more room 
for manoeuvre than at any 
time since becoming party 
chief in October 1981. 

The first step has already 
been announced: political pri- 
soners will be freed under an 
amnesty, perhaps this month, 
perhaps later in the summer. 

Solidarity says there are 
more than 300 political pris- 
oners. Officials put the figure 
lower, but say all but about 20 
will be freed. The problem 
comes with how to follow up 
the amnesty. 

There will certainly be bar- 
gaining with the Catholic 
Church as the preparations for 
the Pope's visit next year 
accelerate. Lay Catholics may 
receive a new publishing 
house; the long-awaited agri- 
cultural fund for private farm- 
ers may be approved 

Critics of General Jaruzelski 
say that, although he has more 
freedom of initiative now than 
at any time in five years, he 
shows no real signs of wanting 
to capitalize on it. 

The rising stars of the new 
Central Committee are above 
all technocrats, men who can 
bring the party up to date on 
the economy. 

It was a well-disciplined 
congress, with none of the see- 
saw debates of the last one, in 
1981, when Solidarity was 
pumping ozone into the sys- 
tem. The products of the 
congress, the new leaders of 1 
Communist Poland are simi- 
larly restrained cautious men, ; 
elected in a cautious age.

Norway calls 
a halt to 
whale hunts 

Oslo (Reuter) - Norway, bowing to interna- 
tional pressure, announced yesterday that 
will halt commercial whaling from next year. 

The Foreign Minister, Mr Knot Frydenlund 
said whaling would be scaled down from the 
end of the current season. Norway. wou“ 
continue catching whales for scientific 

P °Nor«iv is the last member of the Interra-- 
tional Whaling Commission to agree to stop 
whaling. Iceland, Japan, the Sonet Union and 
South Korea still hunt the mammals brat nave 

agreed in principle to stop. . 

A spokesman for the environmental group 
Greenpeace, which has been trying to disrupt 
whaling off northern Norway, said by, radio 
from the protest ship Moby Dickr^This is a 
great victory for environmentalists. 

He said the ship would give up its four-week- 
old protest and return to Oslo. It has been ar- 
rested three times for entering Norwegian 
waters illegally. . , . . 

Although Norway has scaled down its 
annual quota of Miuke whales to 400 this year 
from almost 2,000 in the early 1980s, tbe 
industry has been a severe embarrassment for 
the new Labour Government of Mrs ,Gro 
Harlem Brand dand, who heads a UN environ- 
mental commission. . 

Norway had resisted all efforts to persuade it 
to halt Minke whaling, rejecting arguments 
that whales were in danger of extinction. 

The Government say’s It will set up an 
independent study group to examine differing 
claims by scientists on Minke stocks. 

Government sources said the United States 
bad threatened to block all Norwegian 
fisheries imports — worth 1-2 billion kroner 
(£103 million) a year — unless Oslo, halted 
whaling. 


Russians put Chernobyl death toll at 27 


Geneva (AFP) — A total of 
27 people died in the 
Chernobyl disaster, 187 are 
undergoing medical treat- 
ment. and 100,000 were evac- 
uated from around the plant, 
the Soviet delegation chief, Mr 
Viktor Issraelyan, told the UN 
Disarmament Conference 
here yesterday. 

He said a big radiation 
monitoring operation was still 


under way around the crippled 
reactor, wrecked by an explo- 
sion on April 25. 

Despite an improvement in 
the situation, life would not 
return to normal for some 
time in part of the contami- 
nated zone. The 100,000 peo- 
ple were evacuated from a 20 - 
mile radius round the plant in 
the Ukraine. 

Radioactivity levels were 


being checked by 200 fixed 
and a dozen mobile monitor- 
ing stations, and by aircraft 
with measuring instruments. 

Water samples were taken 
every hour from open reser- 
voirs and rivers, and 800 
laboratories were analysing 
radioactivity levels in the 
earth. 

At the conference Mr 
Issraelyan also called on na- 


sures to deter nuclear terror- 
ism. saying that Chernobyl 
showed how dangerous such 
terrorism would be.

Kyprianou cuts 
short Paris visit

official visit to France yester- 
day to fly home after describ- 
ing the visit by the Tarkish 
Prime Minister to the Turk- 
ish-occupied north of the is-

In talks with President 
Mitterrand, Mr Kyprianou 
said that the situation in 
Cyprus was deteriorating and 
that the attempted mediation 
by the United Nations Secre- 
tary-General had fallen Into 
an “impasse.” 

He also explored tbe possi- 
bilities of Cyprus becoming an 
I associate member of tbe Euro- 
I pea n Community. 

Later, when he met M 
| Jacques Chirac, the French 
Prime Minister sought to reas- 
i sure the Greek Cypriot leader 
that the recent marked rap- 
prochement between his con- 
! servative Government and 
Turkey “in no way alters 
France's support for, and in- 
terest in. the settlement of the 
Cypriot question”. 

France, he said, was ready 
to provide “friendly aid” to try 
to help resolve the problems of 


Cyprus. However, France 
wanted a solution which was 
“acceptable to all and in 
conformity with the principles 
of human rights and the rigid 
of peoples to decide their own 
fate,” be insisted. 

M Chirac greatly infuriated 
Athens in May, when he 
appeared to put Greece and 
Turkey on the same footing;; 

The French Socialists had 
always shown a mar ked cool- 
ness towards Turkey.

Lawyers march against 
Ozal’s Cyprus trip 


ABBEY NATIONAL BUILDING SOCIETY, ABBEY HOUSE, BAKER STREET, LONDON NW1 6XL 


Nicosia (AP) — Scores of 
Greek Cypriot lawyers pushed 
past United Nations peace- 
keeping troops here yesterday, 
to march into the “no man’s 
land" that divides Nicosia. 

They delivered a protest 
against the visit to northern 
Cyprus by the Turkish Prime 
Minister. Mr Turgut Ozal. 

Later the UN peace-keeping

angry Greek demonstrators

Distant quasar

Pasadena, California (AP) 
— Tbe most distant object

Peking woos both

From A Correspondent, Peking 


From Ahmed Fazl 
Dhaka 


People reaching out to touch the Pope as be made his way to a meeting in Bogota with bishops and educationists. 


Without referring directly to 
Senor Betancur's repeated at- 
tempts to make peace, the 
Pope has on several occasions 
spoken of “generous initia- 
tives aimed at fostering dia- 
logue and concord towards 
acbieving'a stable peace”. 

Papal pleas for an end to 
political violence have been 
heard before in neighbouring 
Peru and Central America, not 
to mention Northern Ireland, 
without any apparent effect. 

Most observers doubt that 
the belligerent and increasing- 
ly incoherent April 19 Move- 
ment (M19), which turned 
down Senor Betancur's peace 
offer, will respond positively, 
although one said: “While 
M 1 9 guerrillas themselves will 
remain intransigent, the 
Pope's appeal could have the 
effect of curbing recruitment 
to their ranks.” 

In time it may also prove 


that the Pope helped to main- 
tain the fragile ceasefire made 
by the Betancur administra- 
tion with the biggest guerrilla 
group, the Moscow-/ine Revo- 
lutionary Armed Forces of 
Colombia, whjch the in-com- 
ing government of Senor 
Virgilio Barco Vargas will 
inherit on August 7. 

The Pope has also empha- 
sized the need for social 
reform and redistribution of 
national wealth, a point he 
again made when he met 
Senor Barco, who has prom- 
ised to try to undercut the 
guerrillas by building on an 
improving economic situation. 

Today the Pope is to visit 
the port of Tumaco, the city of 
Popayan. famous for its Span- 
ish Colonial churches and 
monasteries, which were dev- 
astated by an earthquake three 
years ago.

The Japanese elections Cst^lftD 

Spell of the kingmaker bank trial 
still holds its magic misfires 


From David Watts. Nagaoka 


* There are.none of.his post- 
ers on die streets, hot no one 
: needs reminding that Mr 
Kaknei Tanaka is naming 
again in the general election* 
despite a stroke that has left 
; him: barely able to speak. 

: And no one doubts that he . 
will be returned to the Wet 
once again, probably topping 
; the poll on Jnly 6 by a 
comfortable margin — 39 years 
after he entered politics. 

- But the feeling that a politi- 
- cal era is coming to an end is 

palpable in all electoral dis- 
tricts of Niigata prefecture 
except Mr Tanaka's own, 
centred on Nagaoka. 

There win not be the record 
220,761 voters that turned out 
for him in 1983, shortly after a 
conviction — now under appeal 

- for accepting 500 million 
yen (£2 million) from the 
Lockheed corporation to help 
them sell Tristars to a Japa- 
nese airline. But the Tanaka 
phenomenon has not died 
away completely just because 
the scion of the movement is 
confined to his borne in Tokyo. 

The “kingmaker” aged 68, 
arguably the most powerful 
postwar Japanese politician, 
has - not set foot in Niigata 
prefecture since his stroke in 
-February 1985, but the Social- 
ist Party, the only one potting 
op a serious c h all enge to Mr 
Tanaka, now run ning as an 
independent, wffl be more than 
happy if it can hold on to the 
four seats it won in the Lower 
House polls of 1983. • 

. Even with a discredited 
former boss of the Liberal 
Democrats as its mam oppo- 
nent the Socialists do mj 
expect to make headway, such 
is the power of the ruling 

^The prefecture, on the Sea 
of Japan coast is not called

nothing, ft was nndmdmg-

climate and its distance fro®

businesses. He attracted raw 


political funds and dispensed 
. them in equal volume. 

To many, Mr Tanaka is 
little less than a god. Mr 
Kanzichi Kohayashi has a 
shrine dedicated to the former 
Prime Minister outside his 
house, where he prays twice a 
day.. From the Kohayashi 
household, on Mr Tanaka's 
behalf, is run the kind of 
support group crucial for any 
Japanese politician. 

“We Ye hoping to match the 
record level of the last 
election," said Mr Kohayashi 
a squat, pugnacious man of 66, 
“but it might drop a little. 
People know what he has in 
mind and that he wants to 
finish what he wants to do.”

charitable about an incapaci-

From Richard Wigg 
Madrid 


Spain's Director of Public 
Prosecutions, Senor Luis Bur- 
on Barba, has had to come to 
the assistance of two young 
members- of his .Barcelona 
staff who have decided to seek 
the trial on embezzlement 


charges of Senor Jordi Pujol, 

1 the Chief Minister of Catalo- 
i nia, together with 17 former 
j senior executives of the Banca 
, Catalan a. 

Legal investigations into the 
1 affairs of the bonk, which bad 
; to be rescued from collapse by 
j the Spanish state in 1982, 
have dragged on for more than 
two years amid widespread 
i expressions of sympathy for 
the Chief Minister as an 
I alleged victim of the Socialist 
Government in Madrid. 

Amid the negative reac- 
tions, the decision to go for 
prosecution has provoked Sts 
nor Oscar Alzaga, a Christian 
Democrat opposition leader, 
into directly accusing the So- 
cialists yesterday of a “deep- 
laid political scheme to send 
the Chief Minister to jaiL” 

If the case comes to trial, 
and this has still to be decided 
by Barcelona's highest court, it 
would be the first involving 
the Chief Minister of any 
autonomous region since 
Spain's devolution process 



Mr Tanaka: from runner 
without campaigning 

they will counteract the Liber- 
al Democrats* dose linkage 
with business, with the atten- 
dant ability to bring In jobs, 
and local campaign officials 
scratch their heads and say: 
-It’s difficult” . 

The Socialists have httle m 
tile way of a policy in Nagao- 
ka, except criticizing the rul- 
ing party. Local voters are 
aware of this deficiency: "No 
matter how much they shout, 
they can't build a bridge, a 
voter in Niigata said. The 
Liberal Democrats can: one of 
Mr Tanaka’s bridge projects 
is well under way. _ 

But there is no denying tne 
beginning of the end: Nngata 
prefecture lost two seats to a 
recent redistribution to redress 
the voter imbalance between 
rural and urban areas. The 
loss is something that Mr 
Tanaka would never have 
allowed, had he been active. 


Sector Pujol, aged 55, who 
leads a centre-right nationalist 
government and whose party 
increased its representation by 
50 per cent in the Madrid 
Parliament in last month's 
general election, will have to 
consider' stepping down, at 
least temporarily, if the court 
decides he must stand trial. 

Senor Burtin, taking full 
personal responsibility for the 
prosecution moves, admitted, 
however, that he bad delayed 
the announcement so that it 
should not coincide with last 
month's general election. 

One of the Chief Minister’s 
fellow accused has publicly 
attacked the two young magis- 
trates as “anti -Catalans and 
Communists who are seeking 
to destroy the Chief Minister". 

Critics of the Socialists con- 
trast the severity shown 
towardsthose responsible for 
the collapse of the Catalan 
bank with the marked lack of 
proceedings against officials 
linked xo other Spanish banks 
- numbering about 50 — 
which also gql into difficulties 
at the end of the Franco boom 
years.

Cuba may accept 
unwanted exiles 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 


The United States and Cuba 
are to reopen talks on return- 
ing X700 criminals and men- 
ial patients to Havana from 
prisons and medical facilities 
in Florida. 

The so-called “excludables” 
arc the unwelcome elements 
of 125.000 Cubans who ar- 
rived in the US in the Mariel 
boat lift in 1980. most of 
whom have integrated into 
American life. 

An agreement for their re- 
turn was suspended by Presi- 
dent Castro, the Cuban leader, 
after the US began broadcasts 
to Cuba by Radio Marti, a 


propaganda station run by the 
Voice of America. The State 
Department confirmed yester- 
day that talks to reactive the 
agreement would begin in 
Mexico City next week. 

Cuba reportedly decided it 
was in its interests to revive 
the accord to improve rela- 
tions with Washington, and 
also with the population in 
Cuba who resented the cut-off 
in travel between the two 
countries since the agreement 
was suspended. 

Under the accord the Cu- 
bans were to take 100 to 150 
“excludables" a month. 


Some 5,000 people shouted 
"Down with martial law” and 
"Long live democracy” in the 
Bangladeshi Parliament here 
yesterday as % deputies, led 
by the Opposition leader. 
Sheikh Hasina Waxed* took 
the oath as newly-elected 
MPs. 

Sheikh Hasina, leader of 
the Awami League, the largest 
opposition group in the House, 
told the slogan-chanting crowd 
which had forced its way into 
the bnilding that, although 
opposition members had taken 
their oath, they would boycott 
Parliament to protest against 
martial law. 

She accused President Er- 
shad of breaking his pledge to ! 
Lift martial law, as Parliament , 
began its inangoral session- j 
General Ershad summoned | 
the new Parliament for Jnly 10 
bnt said martial law would 
continue until the elections. 

Sheikh Hasina announced 
that there would be protest 
rallies on July 10. 

• Tribal killings: Twelve peo- 
ple were lolled in a spate of 
attacks by "Shanti Bahiui” j 
tribal insurgents fighting for a 
separate homeland in Bang- 
ladesh's south-eastern Chitta- j 
gong Hfil Tracts district, I 
Interior Ministry officials said 
yesterday. I 

The guerrillas raided two 
Bengali villages in the Man- 
ikch&ri district gunning down 
settlers and setting houses 
ablaze. 

Local commanders report- 
ing from the Regional Army 
Headquarters in the town of 
Rangamati, about 280 miles 
from Dhaka, said that the 
separatists, who were armed 
with automatic weapons, left 
the villages after a dash with 
security forces. 

The authorities said the 
guerrillas had earlier blown up 
a road bridge. 


China's Vice-Premier, Mr 
Li Peng, laid great emphasis 
on economic and technical 
ties between Western Europe 
and China in a meeting .with 
M Jacques Delors, president 
of the EEC Commission. 

"The European Communi- 
ty is a strong economic and 
political entity whose unity 
will play an important role in 
safeguarding world peace,” 
Mr Li told M Delors on 
Wednesday. 

In the past two months 
China has tried hard to woo 
countries in both East and 
West Europe in an apparent 
attempt to forge an indepen- 
dent foreign policy. 

Officials are also worried by 
what they see as a lagging rate 
of foreign investment in Chi- 
na, according to ’ diplomats 
and businessmen id Peking. 

Mr Li put three proposi- 
tions to M Delors: Western 
Europe should import more 
Chinese goods; its industrial 
countries should provide 
loans to China on favourable 
terms; and its industrialists 
should set up enterprises in 
China that could be run 
independently or jointly. 

China would provide more 
favourable conditions for 


joint-venture companies and 
guarantee - a “reasonable 
profit'* for foreign investors. 

Peking is also concerned to 
establish independent diplo- 
matic, commercial and Com- 
munist Party lies “with 
Warsaw Pact countries, the 
Foreign Ministry indicated. 

A spokesman, Mr -Yu 
Zhizong, said on Wednesday: 
"We are very happy that "!? 
recent years political, econom- 
ic and trade relations between 
China and Eastern Europe 
have developed rapidly. On 
our pan there exist no differ- 
ences between China and 
Eastern Europe.” 

Mr Yu’s statement came 
just a few days after Frau 
Margot Hotiecker, wife ofthe 
East German leader, met-Mr 
Hu Yaobang, the Chinese 
Communist Party’s Secretary- 
General, in Peking. 

Earlier, the Deputy Foreign 
Minister, Mr Qian Qichen, 
bad told foreign journalists 
that Sino-Soviet relations had 
reached a standstill. 


A delegation headed by Mr 
Zhao Zivang, the Prime Mitt: 
ister, left on Tuesday for a 
nine-day tour of Romania.

Turkey and Tunis.

Rise of the insatiable mega-city 


Grapiac: Bawd Han/Ph ot ogr a ph : Robert fish 


New York and London nsed to 
vie for the title of the world's 
largest city. Not any more. They 
now look up to a new first 
division of Mexico City, already 
housing 18 million people; Sao 
Paulo, likely to have 24 million 
inhabitants by the end of the centnry, and Tokyo, 17.1 
million. And by then Calcutta, Bombay and Cairo will 
have joined the mega-cities with their critical 
problems of housing, services and jobs. As people 
abandon rnral poverty for the cities, governments face 
the impossible job of feeding their metropolitan 
populations. The insatiable mega-city will swallow 
millions of acres of agricultural land. In Egypt, the 
equivalent of the land fertilized by the Aswan Dam has 
now been lost to the urban growth of Cairo.

A 


bdul-Rahim Abdul- 
Sayeh lives with 25 
dead men and 17 
, dead women. He 
says this with a sort 
of affirmative nod, as if daring 
us to disagree. He seifs son 
drinks from a battered ice-tub 
outside the flaking walls of an 
Ottoman mausoleum. He has 
lived in the cemetery all his 
life. 

1 Behind him. in street after 
sweltering street, between 
graves and mosques of 
mourning and beside sar- 
cophagi of white marble, live 
the people of the City of the 
Dead — three million of them, 
if conservative estimates are 
to be believed — a whole 
community, perhaps a fifth of 
Cairo's entire population, who 
have sought sanctuary from 
homelessness by cohabiting 
with the dead. 

.They eat in the little rooms 
reserved for prayer and sit in 
the cool of the evening below 
tablets which record the pass- 
ing of Cairo’s former, but 
infinitely wealthier, inhabit- 
ants. Around the cemetery of 
Mukater alone, there are three 
primary schools for the chil- 
dren of the City of the Dead. 

In the hot afiemoons. when 


even the dusk acquires a 
distinct, fetid smell, they can 
be found on the doorsteps. 
Some of the men work as 
drivers or soldiers or garbage 
collectors. A whole communi- 
ty specializes in the recycling 
of rubbish, brought to its 
shanty town on the railway 
tracks below the Mokkatam 
hills by 10-year-old scaven- 
gers, who carl their broken 
metal, old wheels and offal up 
from the muck of the city 
centre in wagons. 

“Yes, you can come in", 
Zakkiyeh Mohamed says with 
domestic politeness, and she 
pulls aside a tattered curtain to 
lead us into her little tomb. It 
is not her tomb, of course. The 
grave in the back garden is 
clearly marked “General Abd- 
ul Rahmeh Beik Fahmi. Died 
1928.” It is a fancy affair, with 
an inscription in classical 
arabic and a military coat of 
arms. 

“We live here. What else 
can we do?" she asks. “My 
neighbours and I — we came 
from Beni Sueff 40 years ago. 
We have nowhere else to live. 
We are better off than those 
who live in the centre of the 
city." 

Is she? Sultan Ahmed 


CROWDED CAIRO 


Yon cannot find a map of all 
Cairo these days. The dty is 
simply growing too fast for die 
cartographers. Even the mod- 
ern maps show fields where 
there are now tenements, ca- 
nals which have long ago 
turned into open sewers, ceme- 
teries which now contain more 
living inhabitants than dead. 

At Giza, new housing now 
runs almost up to the plateau 
of the Great Pyramids. In 
many inner dty slams, the 
poor often do not know their 
exact address. The old centre 
of Cairo is surrounded by a 


thick belt of poverty. The 
tenements of Imbaba on the 
west bank of the Nile eventual- 
ly face the square miles of 
misery in Chobra and Bolaq 
and the big rail yards behind 
Ramses Street station. To tbe 
east lies the City of the Dead, 
the acres of Mameluke tombs 
in which, so recent estimates 
suggest there live more than 
three mDlion of Cairo's poor. 

The few oases left in this 
desert are confined to the rich 
or to the foreign residents of 
the rity that once called itself 
“Mother of the Earth". 


Mabrouk used to be a 
gravedigger in the cemetery. 
“We deep with the dead", he 
says.“There is no fear. But the 
government does nothing for 
us." He is an old. old man — “I 
am 75 or 80. 1 think", he says 
— and be falls half asleep as he 
talks, almost one with those 
who lie beneath the floor ofhis 
house. From the crumbling 
mosque outside Sultan 
Ahmed's funerial home, you 
can just make out the smog 
above Chobra and Bulaq- It 


takes three quarters of an hour 
to negotiate the traffic jams 
down to the Nile, through 
streets of dilapidated tene- 
ments. A boy of perhaps eight 
whips two donkeys hauling a 
wooden cart of trash up to the 
Mokkatam hills. I try to take a 
photograph of him and a 
policeman runs up. “Go away 
— you are not allowed to to do 
this", he screams. “Go and 
take pictures of the pyramids. 
You have other things to do.’’ 

Below the broken Turkish 


aqueduct a fruit market is 
wedged between piles of gar- 
bage. “No pictures", an urchin 
shrieks when he catches sight 
of my camera. In an alleyway 
of hovels, each built atop the 
other, the shattered balconies 
draped with old washing, a 
man cries out “Why do you 
look at us? Who are you? Are 
you a spy?" There can be no 
dignity amid this squalor. 

Chobra stretches for miles 
up across the rail tracks and 
over the groaning iron bridge 
across the Nile, where old men 
sleep beside the fuming buses, 
where the dust settles on your 
perspiration until you find 
your body enveloped in a kind 
of grey, greasy film. But the 
worst is at Bulaq. Bulaq is not 
its real name. Years ago, the 
French residents of Cairo built 
their gracious mansions here, 
on the very edge of the Nile. 
They called the place “Beau 
Lac" and the breeze of the 
river cooled their spacious 
rooms at night 

But the Nile slunk away 
westwards, leaving only a 
swamp for the poor to live in 
around the abandoned man- 
sions. The houses were re- 
placed by cheap tenements 
and the poorest of the poor 


built homes on top of the 
tenements. Their children 
built shacks on top of the 
homes on top of the tene- 
ments. Then their children, in 
turn, built hovds on top of the 
shacks on top of the homes on 
top of the tenements. 

B ulaq expanded up- 
wards as well as 
sideways, a contu- 
sion behind the new 
comicbe where tour- 
ists in the Ramses Hilton 
Hotel have no conception of 
the endurance that goes on a 
few yards from their air- 
conditioned rooms. All bed- 
rooms face west, towards the 
Nile and the ferule island of 
Gezira. Sometimes, across 
Cairo, the tenements simply 
collapse under the weight, 
burying their occupants in 
ancient lift shafts, stone and 
muck. The Egyptian papers 
routinely call these events 
“tragedies”, reporting them 
like some natural phenome- 
non, an earthquake or an act 
ofGod. 

The statistics are as awe- 
some as the slums. A national 
population of 51 million, a 
new baby every 24.4 seconds, 
a city that may have at least J 4 


million people living in it 
clinging to the wiry river and 
its waterways; more than 99 
per cent of the population of 
Egypt lives in only 4 per cent 
of the total area of the country, 
living off the fertility of the 
Nile, yet daily cutting into its 
day to make bricks for houses 
for more people who need 
more food. 

Now the World Bank and 
International Monetary Fund 
want to call in their loans; they 
want President Mubarak to 
withdraw subsidies on basic 
foodstuffs. Foreign capital is 
drying up in Egypt as surely as 

— does Mubarak realize this? 

— the patience of Cairo's poor, 

“Not long ago, I went 
around the rity and saw 
something 1 had never seen 
before.” The speaker is 
Mohamed Heikal, the Egyp- 
tian writer and journalist 
whose expansive, eloquent as- 
sessments are perhaps too 
often sought out by foreign 
journalists. But he is not 
expansive now. He has been 
doing a little street reporting 
of his own. trying to find out 
why the Egyptian security 
police rioted earlier this year. 

“I found something 


extraordinary", he says. “I 
came across a whole series of 
cancerous, new communities 
around the rity. 200 commu- 
nities that no one has regis- 
tered, in places that weren’t 
even on the map. How many, 
people live .in Cairo novtfT 
How many will live here in the 
year 2000? Twenty-three mil- 
lion? Twenty-five million? 

“There will be a thousandof 
these cancerous, unknown: 
communities then, surround- 
ing and preying on tbe jungle 
of the old rity. For all God 
knows, the rest of Cairo will

6 It’s a cracking tale, but anyone taking the Bible literally needs his head examined’ 


Brian Redhead, tbe soothing morning 
voice of Radio 4's Today programme, has 
just read the Bible from end to end. 
Genesis to Revelation, in a Utde over four 
months, and has derided that its great 
unsung hero is Job. 

“Job is one hell of a bloke". Redhead 
says with enthusiastic imagery rarely 
beard from the more conservative pul- 
pits. “He really has 6ts fist np all the 
time. Bobby Robson should have fielded 
him against Maradona in Mexico." 

Redhead's marathon journey through 
the' smaU print, for which, as a former 
northern editor of The Guardian, be 
trained on 250,000 words* worth of galley 
proofs every week, was an exercise in 
journalism rather than religious faith. 
Tomorrow on Radio 4 he begins a 13-part 
series on the world's enduring best-seller, 
interviewing Christian, Jewish and Is- 
lamic scholars in an effort to explain how 
and why it came to be written, and to pot 
it in some kind of historical context. 

Four years ago his 18-year-old son, 
William, died in a car crash at Arras in 


After four months and almost a hundred scholarly 
interviews, Brian Redhead’s new radio series, 
starting tomorrow, is an impartial look at the Bible 


north-east France, and Redhead has 
since been a regular atteoder and lay 
reader at his local parish church at 
Rainow, near Macclesfield. Embarking 
on a Biblical Odyssey, however, is not he 
insists, any kind of search for personal 
comfort or faith. 

“I regard myself as moderately well 
educated, but 1 realized how ignorant 1 
was about the well-known stories of the 
Bible when we were preparing readings 
for the church. Then I was asked to help 
out with an amateur production of 
Verdi's Nobucco. When I read the 
libretto 1 thought: ‘This story is rubbish; 
it can't be right'. 

u My theory was that everybody at 
some stage says: ‘One day I shall read 
the Bible', and they rarely do. Up to the 


19th century people discussed the Bible 
regularly as part of everyday talk. Now 
we just discuss politics." 

He quotes the 4th century AD writer 
Procopius: “In the days of Byzantium, 
housemaids at tbe races would gossip 
upon the nature of the persons of the 
Trinity.” It seems a tall order to expect 
the same sort of tiling from today's 
housewives in the launderettes. 

Redhead and his BBC producer, 
Frances Gomley, interviewed nearly 100 
scholars, from learned rabbis to a 
professor of Assyriology, leading to 
criticism that the series may be too 
academic. Redhead counters: . “If you 
want to understand the subject, you have 
to go to tbe people who are putting their 
minds to it frill-tune." 


In his first programme, be asks such 
bask journalist's questions as why the 
Bible has survived, and elicits the reply 
from an eminent Glasgow theologian that 
it is tbe only historical document of the 
ancient world that does not speak of a 
struggle between rival gods, but speaks of 
a single deity creating order out of chaos. 

He discovers that the Pentateuch is a 
distillation of several ancient texts, 
w hich appears to explain why there are 
two rival accounts of the Creation in 
Genesis: God creating the Earth in 
Chapter ], and the story of the Garden of 
Eden. 

He also elicits from a Jewish academic 
that the serpent in the Garden is a 
castration symbol, which he and doubt- 
less many of his listeners bad not thought 
about before. 

Redhead has remained entirely im- 
mune to any kind of fundamentalist 
approach to the text: “Anyone who takes 
the Bible literally needs his head 
examined. It's not a map of the journey; 
it's tbe journey itself. 


“But it Is a cracking good tale. As the 
News Of Tbe World nsed to claim: ‘All 
human life is there.' Genesis is tbe book 
that gives the game away, like a whodunit 
telling you the victim and the murderer in 
the first chapter. You learn at the 
beginning that God is not going to desert 
man." 

To those who would plead that the 
Bible should not be treated journalistical- 
ly, or as a mere historical tract. Redhead 
says: “You need both faith and under- 
standing, and I don't think you can have 
the former without tbe latter." 

Nevertheless, Redhead conveys a great 
enthusiasm for tbe Bible as a dai-m»rf 
good read, having consumed its every 
word while commuting ou the train 
between Broadcasting House and his 
Macclesfield home: “It's like an amaiwig 
detective story. You occasionally get a bit 
bored with all the begetting, bat it's not 
half as boring as Jeffrey Archer."

Freedom from the 



* was a heroin addict for 
more than a decade. In 
“ose years I thought 
there was hope - that I 
was doomed to die. But 
recovery from the dis- 
«se of drug addiction is 
possible. As for my mis- 
and pain, J found a 
better way to live. This is 

. • thestoiy of howl found 

they ground me down and 
how I began to recover 

Atr only- child bom into a loving 
Sjpj* successful at school I had a good 
hfe. but somehow foiled to come to terms 
with the world's demands. Fantasy and 
isolation were my way of copins with 
Browing up. and learning the ocfmpro! 
n 'o^ 0 | l e ’ >is sadnesses and triumphs. 

when I was 1 6, an older friend offered 
me a shot of heroin. WhenI stuck out my 
forearm for the injection I expected to 
flinch, from the pain_of the needle: 
instead, pleasure flooded through me. 
And there was something else: for the 
nexi few hours I felt a freedom from ail 
my fears, imaginings and worries. life 
seemed a fair challenge. I could handle 
things. I was also groggy and sick, but the 
alarm and self-consciousness that had 
always been with me had vanished. I 
wanted to feel like that forever. 

I started trying other drugs — amphet- 
amines, sleeping piUs and tranquillizers, 
alcohoL cocaine, each with its own 
“high" and each in some way freeing me 
from my problems. Drugs not only gave 
me a uni verse free of difficulty, they also 
provided an identity, something to get 
my teeth into. 

I took drugs through the rest of my 
schooldays and my time at university 
but l kept my habit from my teachers 
and parents because the drugs I took 
were illegal, because I didn’t think the 
people around, me could help me or 
understand, but mainly because 1 didn't, 
want to stop. 

Most of my friends also took drugs. 
The stories vary, but for an addict, the 
ends are always mimbingly similar: 
death, illness, often crime as a way to pay 
for the drugs. Addiction creeps up on 
you. What I thought was a choice I'd 
made, a way of Living, turned into a 
condition that weakened me so much 
that my decisions about study, jobs, 
people, became irrational. With my 
grasp on reality so frayed. I was in some 
sense of the word actually mad. 

My life's backdrop was simply one 
thing — one obsession: drugs, how to buy 
them. how. much 1 had, where they were 
hidden in my room. I would take them 
constantly, spending all the money I 
could find, pumping them into my body, 
existing purely for the flash of pleasure 
that woukf come from each shot. This 
way ofliving went on for years. . 

' At first my career, a creative one, gave 
me some happiness. More important, it 
also gave me- money. I managed, to get 
away with taking drujpi at work for some 
five years; controHmg my intake, having 
my place of work -in lunch to “score", 
moving from post to post before people 
came to know me too welL Those who 
did find out about my addiction viewed 
drags through liberated eyes, as an 
acceptable lifestyle choice. 

; Few people thought i was suffering 
from a life-threatening sickness and they 
were fob fond of me to jeopardize my 
career -by. informing on me to my 
superiors. I moved from country to 
country, and wherever I went I sur- 
rounded myself with other drug users. 

Sometimes I would “clean up" for 
daysjor even a few weeks. But always 
there wouki be a void inside me and I 
would be drawn back to drugs- After 
some years my physical dependence on 
heroin became so great, my emotional 
need for it so central I could not ever 
countenance the thought of 
“withdrawing” from the drug — it wasn t

just the pain of withdrawal, but also the 
fear of being “without anything". 

What I see clearly now is that giving up 
drugs.was not all I needed to do in order 
to recover from addiction. ! was carrying 
with me my own confused attitude, my 
own depressions and self-delusions, my 
furious anger and resentment towards 
the world, roy helpless dreams. 

By the age of 25 I had gone to work in 
the United States. There 1 was a stranger. 
In my profession, where creative eccen- 
tricity is sometimes smiled upon, what 
really counts is results. No one enquired 
too closely about what I did in my own 


time. By this stage I had already been in 

3itai twi 


hospital twice wfih hepatitis, caused by 
sharing needles with other infected drug 
users: 1 had gone down with the blood 
disease of septicaemia, I was thin as a 
rake and pale as a ghost 

But the endurance I got from heroin 
helped me to work obsessively and work 
made me fed I was folfilling myself in 
some way. even if the drugs affected the 
quality of it I assumed other people 
didn't know about the drugs, and 1 saw 
all the ironies in my situation; I thought 
they were fools and 1 could get away with 
anything. Tn fact many people could see 
what was happening and either refused 
to believe it or couldn’t work out what to 
do. 

Outwardly I still had success. I bad 
designed my life so 1 could find my drugs 
easily, J was living in a glamorous way. 
Inwardly, the lighting in the tunnel was 
getting fainter. 1 needed more drugs to

keep going. By the last year of my drug- 
taking, I had given up all drugs but 
heroin. But heroin was hardly working 
any more and my dosage grew higher. 
Sometimes, to buy drugs, I scoured the 
streets for hours looking for dealer! My 
days were a ritual of visits to the h ank, 
trips downtown to “score" a wild release 
as soon as the drugs were nestling in my 
pocket, and a few seconds of pleasure 
swamped m the “rush" of the drugs. 

I don't know how I escaped the police. . 
I ran their gauntlet daily. I saw the drug 
scene as it is everywhere — fuQ of guns, 
violence, profit and rip-ofis. I was 
stealing from my family and colleagues, 
taking on huge debts, making pitiful 
efforts to give up, succumbing again. I 
even robbed commuters on the subway 
train. 

Even as I did it I wondered why I, a tal- 
ented young man who once had every- 
thing to live for. was harming other 
people to buy the drugs that were 
destroying me. My life was filling up 
quickly with personal disasters that had a 
strange effect — as they stripped me of 
hope, they made me glad; they left a sense 
that something had to give. 

This nightmare reached its peak when 
1 was found out by my employers. There 
was the crushing shame of being con- 
fronted by people to whom I felt an 
obligation, the agony of being discov- 


ered. Bui worst of all. was the realization 
that my long, unhappy affair with drugs 
would now end. 

I found myself in a treatment centre 
for addiction and alocoholics. There, I 
was detoxified from heroin and went 
through a week of withdrawals. The 
torment I'd feared for so long came, was 
horrible, and went 

For the first time for years I was 
* without drags. As my head cleared I 
started taking a good look at myself, 
helped by Other people in the treatment 
centre who shared my problem and 
could see clearly the pattern of my 
behaviour. The safe haven of a clinic 
gave me the chance to make a choice, for 
the first lime, about the future I wanted 
for myself. It also gave me insight into 
my personality. 

Gradually I began to recognize the 
feelings within me that had long been 
covered over. In group therapy sessions I 
began lo see myself in others, and as I 
spoke about my emotions others could 
also share my own attitudes. Sharing 
feelings, I quickly realized, could break 
down the sense of isolation I had built 
around myself even before I started 
taking drugs. My physical condition 
improved. I saw doctors, counsellors, a 
psychiatrist. 

The eight weeks 1 spent in treatment 
seem to me now rather like a crash 
course in how to live — the trick is to go 
out in the real world and put those 
lessons to work. Recovery is helped, in 
the early days, by friends or family who 
understand that addiction is a disease, 
that its ravages need time to be 
remedied, and that to live without drugs 
is really a process to become human — 
becoming vulnerable, emotional happy 
and sad. 

Slowly it dawned on me that hundreds 
of other addicts had escaped from their 
addictions in that hospital. Thousands of 
others had “got clean" even without 
treatment (and now lead drug free lives 
by a simple means of therapy — the 
fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous). I 
starred to see that recovery from 
addiction was possible. Treatment and 
NA meetings helped me to deal with my 
feelings about the way I lived before, to 
find out bow other addicts coped with a 
drug-free life and to realize that I am not 
bad. nor even doomed. 

Therapy for addiction is both simple 
and far-reaching. It calls for bravery, not 
brilliance. The key for me is to stay away 
from all drugs. It sounds simple, but for 
an addict, drugs are the most natural 
means in the world for coping with 
problems, for making one feel better. 

Drugs rob the addict not only of 
money but also of more precious things 
— a sense of place in the world, love for 
others, all those rhythms and sounds of 
living that provide the idea of purpose in 
recovery. The addict taking his first, or 
second, or twentieth drug doesn't choose 
his fete. Those who recover from 
addiction can lead lives informed and 
brightened by the memory of its dark- 
ness. 1 hope experience 
someone to find recov- 
ery. finally, this piece is 
unsigned not because I 
don't want to say who I 
am. but because my 
name doesn’t matter and 
because the NA fellow- 
ship. which is the basis 
of recovery for me, is 
protected by my 
anonymity.

As the Ministry of Defence joins the 
fight against drug abuse, scientists are-: 
finding new ways to help addicts. 


Thomson Prentice investigates 



OnmaNmapapMUA 


Drug abuse is reaching epi- 
demic proportions in Britain. 
The Government has acknowl- 
edged that heroin, amphet- 
amines, cocaine and other 
drags have spread their influ- 
ence to almost every part of the 
conn try. People in ah sections 
of society, from debutantes to 
adolescents, are affected — 
some fatally. 

Although the development 
of services to treat addicts 
most remain a priority accord- 
ing to health ministers, many 
specialists believe that even 
the growing number of dinks 
and agencies, both within the 
NHS and independently ran, 
are inadequate to deal with the 
scale of the problem. 

According to the latest 
Home Office figures, there 
were 5,869 addicts known to 
be receiving drugs in Britain at 
the end of 1984. But agency 
workers and specialists esti- 
mate the real figure to be 
anything from five to ten times 
higher. Four million people 
are said by some research 
workers to hare tried drugs of 
one kind or another and more 
than 100,000 are believed to be 
dependent on tranquillizers. 

For drug abusers and their 
families, the biggest problem 
is kicking the habit. How can 
families help and what are the 
latest forms of treatment? 

Heroin, amphetamines, co- 
caine and tranquillizers are all 
highly addictive. A heroin 
user, for example, whether 
injecting, i nhaling or sniffing 
the drag, will eventually need a 
dose every few hoars. 

"Whatever the drag in ques- 
tion, an addict has to make the 
firm decision to stop before 
any help will be useful”, says 
Jennifer BleasdaJe, a regional 
liason officer with SCODA 
(Standing Conference on Drug 
Abuse), a national co-ordinat- 
ing body for voluntary drug 
agencies and organizations. 

Since the 1960s, the stan- 
dard type of medical detoxifi- 
cation for heroin addicts has 
been methadone, a synthetic 
heroin substitute which is 
itself highly addictive. 

The rationale behind the 
prescribing of methadone is 
that it prevents addicts from 
turning to the black market, 
offers an element of medical 
supervision and alleviates 
withdrawal symptoms — al- 
though some specialists criti- 
cize the ose of this drug, 
arguing that it is merely 
substituting one form of addic- 
tion for another . 

A sympathetic family doctor 
will prescribe methadone in a 
linctus form, to be taken over 
three weeks, perhaps longer, 
on a gradually reducing dos- 
age. More serious cases are 
usually referred to hospital for 
treatment lasting at least two 
weeks-Many heroin addicts 
have to go od methadone 
maintenance for a long time — 
perhaps years. 

Other drugs are being used 


as substitutes and the latest, 
now undergoing trials in Brit-r 
sin. is naltrexone, which 3C

Education for women and one 
of three remaining female 
colleges, at the university, 
should be celebrating its cente-

clash of two powerful person- 
alities ended with the death of 
the principal, the resignation 
of five tutors and a boycott of 
St Hugh's undergraduates by 
the rest of the university. 

The college survived it all 
and now occupies a massively 
expanded site off the Banbury 
Road, a far cry from the rented 
house in Norbam Road where 
four women students gathered 
to form the college in 1886. 
After all this, why has it 
decided to go co-educational? 

The main reason for the 
decision appears to be a desire 
to improve the standard of 
applicants, and therefore the 
standard of undergraduate 
endeavour. Last year 
St Hugh's was placed 26th out 
of 28 in the Norrington league 
table of degree results; the year 
before it was bottom. 

Most girls dp not choose to 
go to a single sex college. Last 
year 177 women put 
St Hugh's as their first choice 
— the lowest number of appli- 
cants per place for any Oxford 
college. As Dr Mary Lunri, a 
maths don at the college, puts 
it “The age of protection is 
over. Most of the girls do not 
want to go to an all-female 
college. They want to prove 
they can do it in straight 
competition.” 

The argument about admit- 
ting men has raged been raging 
for years and was finally 
concluded last December. 
(Somerville and Si Hilda's are 

’.•n *_ .rj* . ...At 



Broken barriers: mate and female staff eat at St Hugh's High Table 


kill holding out). Miss Rachel 
who hi 



Trie ken. who has five more 
years as principal of 
St Hugh's, is outspoken in her 
opposition to admitting male 
undergraduates: “Such evi- 
dence as we have suggests 
that, although women like 
being in mixed colleges, they 
don't like being in a minority 
because they tend to fell into 


second place. I am not suggest- 
ing men do it to them, they do 
it to themselves. “A mixed 
society living in the same 
building is a most unnatural 
institution. You are never 
going to live with a large 
crowd of members of the 
opposite sex in your life again, 
except in a hoieL" 

Sushma Sharraa, a second- 
year mathematics undergrad- 
uate from a Punjabi faintly 
living in Nottingham, was 
probably speaking for many 
when she said she was re- 
signed to the college going co- 
ed but regretted it because 
women students needed the 
places to keep up their num- 
bers at Oxford. 

There have been male dons 
at St Hugh's since 1978 and 
their arrival seems to have 
been accepted with equanim- 
ity. There are 1 now 16 male 
fellows and 19 women, with 
only six women and all 16 
men appointed since 1977. 

One of them. Dr John Rob- 
ertson. a tutor in modem 
history, is forthright in his 
advocacy of co-education; “It 
will open the college up again, 
give it a better pool to draw on 
and improve the intellectual 
life" he declares. All fellows 
agreed that the number of 
women dons at Oxford and 


Cambridge was disappointing- 
ly low. Since 1966. numbers 
have remained static. As 
Dr Isabel Rivers, an English 
tutor, puls it: “If you have 
open competition, it is in the 
nature of things that a man is 
more likely to be appointed, 
because more men apply. 

“Fewer women go on to do 
higher degrees and in a college 
like this one. where you have a 
totally open appointments 
system, the college will take 
the best person, man or 
woman.” 

This trend is likely to lead 10 
fewer women dons and gfve 
female undergraduates fewer 
“role models" to emulate. The 
vicious circle could continue. 

But. with good fortune and 
some positive action, it will 
not. Dr Robertson, who is 
also head of the graduate 
schooL launched a major 
drive to build it up. through a 
programme of scholarships, 
from its present SO members 
to 80 or 100. “These are the 
women who are going to come 
through wanting, and in some 
cases obtaining, university 
positions", he says.

THE TIMES

Sanctions 

strain 

The House of Commons Foreign 
Affairs Committee, which has 
been considering Britain's in- 
volvement in the South African 
crisis, has suddenly speeded up its 
Jvork and is to come up with an in- 
terim report later this month. The 
reason for this haste is that the 
committee hopes its recom- 
mendations will have an impact 
on the seven-nation Common- 
wealth summit, to be held in 
London in the first week of 
August. At that meeting. Mrs 
Thatcher will be under severe 
pressure to impose sanctions 
against South Africa. I understand 
that two or possibly three of the 
seven Tories on the committee 
will be sorely tempted to join the 
tour Labour members in a recom- 
mendation favouring sanctions. A 
secret session of the committee 
yesterday with a senior American 
diplomat, Robert Frazure. at 
which he expressed little but 
pessimism about Pretoria's readi- 
ness to talk to overseas leaders, 
fas added to their qualms on the 
Thatcher line. 

Crime wavering 

Victims of violent crimes who 
have been waiting interminably 
for the Criminal Injuries 
Compensation Board to decide 
what they should be paid had 
better make a virtue of patience, 
the 20 extra staff whose appoint- 
ment Home Office inspectors 
Recommended last year to handle 
the backlog of claims has been 
Reduced to 13. The rate of violent 
crime is so high in Britain these 
days that if all the claims were met 
the government's budget would be 
grossly exceeded. 

Late departure 

General Sir Michael Gow, former 
head of the Royal College of 
Defence Studies, bung up his 
epaulettes six weeks late. A few 
days before he was due to retire, he 
slipped while running for a train at 
Waterloo station and broke his 
ankle. Since regulations forbid an 
officer to retire while in hospital, 
he was obliged to continue draw- 
ing full pay until the injury healed. 
Some compensation, perhaps, for 
being the Iasi general to fail at 
Waterloo. 

• Ecclesiastical thrift: an An- 
glican clergymen removed his dog 
collar in the heat to reveal that it 
was nothing more than a recycled 
slice from a plastic detergent 
bottle. When challenged, be con- 
fessed at once.

Marching on 

Disinformation by the Tower

mlrch in support of Wendy

pended from work last year, has 
ndt after all been cancelled. It will

Savage's travails is yet in sight. A 
decision about whether she will be 
reinstated to her post, following a 
six-week inquiry earlier this year, 
should have been taken by the 
authority on the same day as the

postponed indefinitely. 

Slow delivery 

More on the matter of the highest- 
scoring over in cricket history. A 
reader now tells me that in 1 890. 
during a match in Yorkshire, an 
Australian touring team beat an 
English side with a single hit — 
never mind a whole over. Lyons, 
one of the Aussie openers, hit a 
ball so bard that it smashed 
through the window of an express 
train, the 11.35. bound for Shef- 
field. We appealed for “lost ball.*’ 
which was overruled by the um- 
. pire on the grounds that its 
1 whereabouts was known. One of 
our players was dispatched on a 
’later. train, a slow one. onjy to 
discover at Sheffield that the 
station master had already sent it 
back by parcel post It reached the 
ground at 1.30 pm the following 
day. The English sat in from of the 
pavilion while the Australians ran 
1.849 and declared their innings. 
The analysis of the unfortunate 
bowler, one Mr AttewelL was: 0.1 
overs. 0 maidens. 0 for 1 .849.

Security plus shake-up 


Some critics wrote off the Peacock 
report as dead even before it 
appeared. Far from iL Much of it 
may not be put into practice until 
after the next general election, but 
the report nevertheless points the 
way for changes. 

It offers a secure basis for 
funding the BBC in the next ten 
years, white restraining BBC 
imperialism. It does something to 
shake up the duopoly of BBC and 
ITV by opening the way for 
independent producers. It recom- 
mends that many pensioners be 
exempt from paying the licence 
fee. and shows how the licence fee 
system- could be replaced in the 
late 1 990s by viewers paying 
directly for BBC television. 
Conservative backbenchers 
shouldbe cheering, not growling, 
and Labour's shadow cabinet will 
find that long term, it has to come 
back to many of the committee's 
proposals. 

The issues are complex and the 
members have strong individual 
views, but on most they were 
unanimous. Ail approved of 
preparing for subscription tele- 
vision as the most practical alter- 
native to the licence fee, and of the 
exemption of pensioners. There 
was general agreement against 
forcing advertising on to BBC 
television. 

Although the decision on 
advertising may disappoint the 
government, it was not taken 
lightly. Alan Peacock and Sam 
Brittan — our two economists — 
commissioned much economic 
research on our behalf, as did_ 
other interested parties, the In- 
dependent Television Companies 
Association and the Newspaper 
Society among them. Researchers 
studied such issues as the flexibil- 
ity of the television advertising 
market, and the effect of BBC 


Alastair Hetherington, a member of the 
Peacock committee, on its differences over 
the more controversial recommendations 


advertising on ITV. independent 
local radio and others: it con- 
cluded that as little as two minutes 
in the hour on BBC 1 alone could 
bring a drastic reduction of rev- 
enue to the ITV companies. The 
peak-lime rates would be punc- 
tured, causing great damage to 
1TV finance and programme- 
making. Local newspapers would 
also lose revenue. These draw- 
backs dampened the free market 
enthusiasm. 

Research on programme con- 
tent was conducted by Professor 
Jay Blunder of Leeds University 
and Dr Tom Nossiter of the LSE. 
It is summarized in the report but 
will be published in full about 
three weeks hence. It showed 
clearly — confirming the 
committee’s own impressions 
from travel in this country and 
abroad — dial if BBC television 
were to become dependent on 
advertising revenue the nature of 
programme-making both by the 
BBC and ITV would inevitably 
change. No peak-time informa- 
tion programmes, apart from the 
news; little or no current affairs; 
no controversial or demanding 
drama: no political satire; much 
less diversity. 

The consequences can be seen 
in the United States where, during 
the last 15 years, the three main 
networks have bought almost 
nothing from either the BBC or 
JTV. | Only US public service 
channels with minority audiences 
do so). 

Radio was. regrettably, left to 
the end of the discussions, when in 


my view the committee made its 
worst decision. With little thought 
as to the consequences, the 
committee voted 5-2 for the 
privatizing of Radios I and 2. In 
effect the proposal — a sop to the 
free marketeers on the commit- 
tee — will prevent BBC radio from 
reaching mass audiences and 
diminish the status of radio within 
the BBC. Television is already too 
dominant: BBC radio, reduced, 
will be given even less consid- 
eration. In addition, advertising 
on privatized Radios 1 and 2 
would bankrupt many indepen- 
dent local stations. 

The committee also came close 
to recommending privatization 
for BBC local radio, but its 
distinctive services were rec- 
ognized. BBC local radio, broadly 
speaking, is 70 per cent talk and 30 
per cent music, while on the 
independent stations the propor- 
tions are reversed. Each style is 
acceptable to the audiences it 
attracts, and the further you live 
from London the more you are 
likely to appreciate both. 

Apart from Radios I and 2, 
another split came over the ITV 
franchise system. By a 4-3 vote, 
the majority recommended that 
these should be pul to competitive 
tender. This decision was also 
damaging. If applied, it would put 
the IBA in an impossible position. 
If a company with a sound 
financial base, but no experience 
of television, offers a higher rental 
than an established company with 
a strong programme record, such 
as Granada or Yorkshire, where 


wiD the line be drawn? At 10 per 
cent higher, 15 per cent 20 per 
cent or higher still? Not only, that, 
but the successful bidder would be 
under such pressure to maximize 
profits that only mass-appeal pro- 
grammes would be televrzecL This 
was confirmed by Thames, 
Central Granada and Grampian 
which were questioned separately 
on the issue. The Home Secretary 
is prudent to defer action .on this 
disputed recommendation. 

The further proposal that future 
ITV contracts should be based on 
a “rolling review", with a system 
of “yellow card" and “red card” 
warnings, makes, much more 
sense. If within a year of being 
shown the “yellow" a company 
does not remedy its programme 
defects, then the “red” will be 
served and the franchise readvert- 
ised a year later unless there had 
been a great improvement mean- 
while. 

Already the committee is being 
criticized both for going beyond its 
terms of reference — which we 
dispute - and for not going be- 
vond them. Sex and violence were 
far outside our remit; so was the 
evident disarray in the higher 
ranks of the BBC That the 
governors are at ' times 
ineptf though their chairman led 
their evidence to the committee 
admirably), and that the BBCs 
board or management at times 
appear to have their knives into ■ 
each other and into the governors 
as well, was not the committee's 
fondness. It is. however, some- 
thing that the BBC itself must put 
right if it wants to survive.

The recent tin crisis involved 
more than the dramatic collapse of 
the International Tin CounciL It 
precipitated a commercial catas- 
trophe and raised questions about 
the good faith of governments, not 
least the British. 

The potential losses to banks 
and businesses trading on the 
London Metal Exchange probably 
exceed £400 million, and the final 
figure could be much larger. In an 
area of Cornwall with 20 per cent 
unemployed, and where big sums 
have just been invested in hiring 
new men and opening up new 
workings, tin mining hb all but 
ended. 

The 22 member governments of 
the ITC. representing producers 
and consumers, were bound by a 
treaty and other agreements to 
maintain price stability and as- 
sured supplies until June 1987. . 
By abandoning the council in 
October 1985. when it ran out of 
money to buy more surplus tin for 
its buffer stock, they broke these 
solemn agreements. By doing so 
they betrayed mines, banks and 
metal traders, many of whose 
commercial lives the ITC domi- 
nated. By abandoning the JTC, 
with £1.5 billion ofits contracts to 
buy and sell tin incomplete and 
with debts of nearly £350 million, 
they defaulted in a manner which 
would be unthinkable for the 
poorest developing country. By 
conducting the council's affairs 
behind a veil of secrecy, they 
prevented those outside govern- 
ment circles from learning the 
dangers of dealing with iL 
The governments involved 
deny any legal liability for the 
damage caused. So, even, does the 
British government despite hav- 
ing urged all other member gov- 
ernments to honour their “legal 
commitments’’ when the crisis 
broke. This view will be tested in 
the courts in due course. Whatever 
the courts decide, many wider 
questions remain to be answered.. 

The British government al- 
lowed the ITC to establish its 
headquarters in London and con- 
ferred specific immunities on it; 
the Department of Trade and 
Industry representative was a 
member of its most important 
committees. Government obliga- 
tions dearly extend beyond the 
letter of the law at least to 
supervising the smooth running of 
the nation's markets. 

On Monday the House of 
Commons will consider two re- 
cent reports by its Select Commit- 
tee on Trade and Industry which 
considered many of those 
responsibilities, and the DTI's 
reply. The debate should shed 
light on the government's actions 
and intentions, in particular on 
these important questions: 

• Did it know there was «ny 
danger of the conncfl collapsing? 

Undoubtedly it did. as the DTI 
has admitted in its evidence to the 
Select Committee. The problems

Cornish tin miners: victims of a crash that the 
government did too little to avert 


which the council faced’ in 1982 
“would ultimately have proved 
loo severe for the agreement to 
withstand”, it said. Officials began 
to try to extract from the ITC 
information about its more 
hazardous activities some years 
ago. They claim that, had they 
succeeded, “the collapse might 
well have been predicted and 
prevented”. But their efforts were 
reined back — why, it is not clear. 

• Did the government warn the 
LME, banks or Cornish mines of 
the danger of collapse? 

Trading in tin on the London 
Metal Exchange was dominated 
by dealings with the ITC - which 
could not operate without the 
LME Some kind of warnings were 
made by the LME to the authori- 
ties and vice versa. But it appears 
that at no time did the authorities 
warn of any risk that member 
governments would allow the ITC 
to become bankrupt and go into 
default on its existing obligations 
to metal traders or the banks. Nor 
does the government seem to have 
thought through the actions it did 
call for. On its own. an LME 
boycott of the ITC would have 
brought about the council’s col- 


lapse. causing chaos in the tin 
market and inflicting vast losses 
all round. Yet the authorities in 
effect advised the LME firms 
involved to stop trading with iL 
The only sensible remedies would 
have been a radical reorganization 
or an orderly wind-down of the 
ITCs affairs. 

The bankers and Cornish mines 
were given no warning, mainly 
because to have done so - to 
quote the DTI — would have 
“precipitated a crisis and probably 
the collapse of the buffer stock 
operation In acting as it did. the 
government took a big gamble 
with other people's - jobs and 
money without warning them of 
the dangers to which it was 
committing them - a gamble 
which foiled. Was this wise 
stewardship of the nation’s finan- 
cial markets? Can the government 
now disown all responsibility for 
the consequences of what it did? 

When it became aware of the 
danger, the government could 
have done much more, either 
alone or with other members, to 
change the ITCs policies. Using 
the procedures laid down in the 
Sixth International Tin Agree- 
ment (ITA-6), it could have: 


• Used the consultation, com- 
plaints and disputes procedures 
laid down m ITA-6: and the 
disputes procedure in a separate 
legal “headquarters agreement”. 

• Withdrawn from the ITC 

• Proposed the early termination 
of/TA-6. 

• Terminated the headquarters 
agreement and expelled the ITC 
from Britain. 

• Removed the immunities it had 
conferred on the ITC 

The mere threat of such actions 
might have been sufficient to steer 
the ITC back on to a safer course, 
or at least to provide for an orderly 
wind-down of its operations. But, 
as far as we know, nothing of the 
sort was attempted. The Select 
Committee spent much time in- 
vestigating these matters but ob- 
tained few answers from ihe DTI 
about what went on in the ITC 
and the government in the period 
before the crisis. The DTI pleaded 
variously the confidentiality of 
advice to ministers, the impropri- 
ety of discussing matters which 
might be the subject of legal 
action, the restrictions on what the 
Select Committee may investi- 
gate. and the limitations imposed 
by membership of the ITC So the 
council's activities and the British 
government’s involvement in it 
remain shrouded in secrecy even 
now, while all ITC governments 
seek to shelter behind professed 
immunity from any attempt to 
discover what really happened. 
Such reticence may have been 
defensible while negotiations were 
continuing but it is less justifiable 
today. 

in addition to the points I have 
already raised, we must hope that 
Monday's debate will illuminate 
the following questions of prin- 
ciple: 

• Having gambled with the 
money, investmenL jobs and good 
name of the LME, Cornish mines 
and banks, what does the govern- 
ment now perceive its responsibil- 
ity to them to be? In particular, 
will it help them in any legal 
action to recover the losses which 
the collapse of the ITC caused to 
all affected by the price of tin? 

• Will the government now re- 
move the rTC immunities? 

• Given the lack of information 
about what happened awthin the 
ITC and Whitehall, will the 
government now initiate a quick, 
foil and independent inquiry into 
what happened and publish the 
results? 

When the government is requir- 
ing our financial institutions and- 
markets to undertake major re- 
forms to strengthen foir and open 
dealings and to protect investors 
and clients from exploitation, rt is 
surely not unreasonable to ask it to 
apply the same standards to its. 
own operations.

Heroic, but look 
at the odds 


The only way to maintain any 
sense of reality in an increasingly 
crazy situation is by restating 
constantly to oneself the simple 
logic of the British predicament in 
South Africa: 

• Britain has important interests 
in South Africa which will be 
harmed , if we adopt a sanctions 

policy- 

• An economic sanctions policy, 
if implemented, for from having 
the effect that is intended, wfll 
almost certainly achieve nothing 
except direct and indirect damage 
to the black population, to the 
“front line" states and to British 
interests. 

• Immediate self-interest, as well 
as morality, points to our doing 
nothing to harm the South African 
economy, and if we were a self- 
. sufficient superpower that would 
be our obvious and best response. 

• Unfortunately we are not in that 
situation. We have broad interests 
which are, in total, far more 
important than our interests: in 
South Africa. Our economic links 
with the blackCommonwealth are 
extremely valuable, and our po- 
sition on the international po- 
litico-economic stage depends 
more generally on our leading role 
in the EEC and the Common- 
wealth and our rapport with, the 
other members of these organiza- 
tions. Moreover, our long-term 
interestsin South Africa itself may 
be put at risk if we appear to back 
the losing side in an imminent 
revolution. 

• If we are ever really forced to 
choose between the two sets of 
interests, we shall have to sacrifice 
the immediate South African 
ones. Meanwhile our logical pol- 
icy now, as in the past, must be to 
fight a rearguard action and 
manoeuvre for as long as possible 
to avoid having to make the 
choice. 

So much is common ground 
between pretty well everyone ex- 
cept those who have persuaded 
themselves that economic sanc- 
tions wHl actually be effective. For 
the rest of us the argument is 
about the best tactics of retreaL 
Here there are two possible lines 
of thought best explained in terms 
of military analogies. 

The first is the Fabian or 
“regronp-in-good-order" school, 
to which Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
majority of die Cabinet, and most 
of the Foreign Office subscribe: 
The argument is that the present 
position is too exposed and that 
we are in danger of sustaining 
serious casualties (in terms of 
credibility and interim damage to 
our interests) in trying to hold it. If 
we hang on too long we may find 
ourselves completely overrun and 
wiped ouL Better to give ground, 
while there is stiff time, and fall- 
back to prepared positions half- * 
way down. 

The Horatian. or “tbey-shall- 
not-pass”, brigade, to which the 
Prime Minister and one or two 
others belong, resist this reasoning 
on two planes. At the instinctive 
level they simply believe that it is 
pusillanimous. On die more ratio- 
nal level they maintain, first that 
the danger is not as bad as it looks 
and the likely casualty figures are 
exaggerated: Commonwealth 


leaders such as Rajiv Gandhi and 
Kenneth Kaunda arc rhetorical 
sabre-rattlers but weak- on action 
when the moment comes; the 
ANC are years away from power 
and withdrawal is therefore pre- 
mature anyhow. 

Secondly, they beheve that the 
foil-back positions that have beep 
prepared arc badly situated for 
defence; once you have agreed ip 
moderate sanctions then it is 
almost impossible to argue against 
tightening the screw if they don’t 
work. Thirdly, some of the 
Conservative troops will shoot the 
general if the retreat is sou n ded. 
Finally,, there is still an outside 
chance of a miracle in the shape of 
a general armistice, brought about 
by a last-minute change of heart in 
Pretoria. Altogether the idea is 
that by standing firm you may get 
away with it, and even if you have 
to move in the end you may not 
need to go so for so fesL ' 

There is more to be said lor the 
Horatius-Thatcher position than 
is sometimes conceded. It worked, 
after aiashi on, in the matter of the 
EEC budget and again in ther 
- miners’ strike, although the cost in 
both these cases was very high. 
But if she grants (as I think she 
does) that she cannot actually 
allow the Commonwealth to break- 
up or for counter sanctions to be 
applied against Britain, is it now 
worth paying an interim price r- 
Commonwealth ill-will and a bad 
start to the British presidency of 
the EEC — in the hope, at best, of 
gaining a few'months time? Is-it 
worth risking the more ignomin- 
ious and costly defeat that wHf 
occur if our present altitude causes 
the Commonwealth to demand a 
bigger retreat than it would have 
done if we had gone willingly an 
month ago? 

The answer would only be “yes” 
if there were a foir chance of 
persuading the South African 
government to shift (The advan- 
tage ofbeing able to say to 20 or 30 . 
Tory right-wingers “well at least 
we tried" is very sraalL) But m>. 
encouraging signal of any kind has' 
been received from President' 
Botha. There is merely a presump- 
tion in Downing Street that he 
owes Mrs Thatcher something, 
and that now he has demonstrated' 
his control of the internal situa- 
tion he can afford to relax a bit .. 

Perhaps so, but against that 
must be set the more potent feet 
that foe month which Sir Geoffrey - 
Howe has been allotted for mir-- 
ade-woriting happens to be the 
run-up to the National Party’s 
federal and provincial congresses 
at which the for right have to be 
persuaded to accept even the 
minimal package of constitutional 
reform that' is being set before, 
than. It is in the wildest degree 
improbable, if not actualy impos- 
sible, that Botha would release 
Nelson Mandela at this time. 

In short. Fabius-Howe has the 
best of foe argument — and a fel 
lot of good that does him under-; 
Mrs Thatcher's consulship. TheT 
poor man simply finds himself; 
forcibly recast in the role of- 
Spurius Lartius and now stands ;

hordes advance.

Colombia, not Mexico, was front 
runner to stage the 1986 World 
Cup until President Batancur 
declined on the grounds that the 
country could not afford such 
extravagance. Yet enormous sums 
have been found - $80 million, 
according to Havana Radio, 
though that is probably an exag- 
geration — on public works of 
doubtful long-term value and the 
general sprucing up of cities for the 
Pope's present visit. 

Enrique Santos Calderon, a 
highly respected journalist sup- 
ported Betancur's decision not to 
host the World Cup. but notes that 
since then “Neither hospitals nor 
schools have been built and 
children continue to starve

Medellin, at the 1968 Latin 
American bishops' conference, 
that liberation theology first 
emerged, and had history taken a 
different course, the Pope might 


have been welcomed by a 57-year- 
old Cardinal or Archbishop 
named Camilo Torres - the 
model for foe priest-turned- 
subversive in Graham Greene’s 
The Honorary > Consul. 

A brilliant scholar and linguist, 
Torres came from one of Bogota's 
oldest and most distinguished 
families, and after taking holy 
orders in 1954 seemed destined w 
go far in foe church. Instead, he is 
today revered almost as foe patron 
saint of liberation theology which 
two years before foe 1968 Medel- 
lin conference he took to foe 
ultimate extreme, dying as a 
revolutionary guerrilla during a 
skirmish with government troops. 
Torres became a guerrilla after the 
church showed alarm and hostility 
towards his left-wing politics. He 
decided that the conditions of foe 
urban poor would never be im- 
proved by peaceful means. 

While liberation theology has 
taken hold elsewhere in Latin 
America — most notably in Bra- 
zil. Peru and Central America — it 
has not flourished in Colombia. 
Nor has foe legend of Torres 
himself. “Camilo was a myth 
created abroad, because in this 
country nothing happened." says 


Monsignor Dario Castrillon, one 
of Colombia’s more outspoken 
bishops. Earlier this year, on the 
20th anniversary of his death. 
Torres was the subject of a series 
of assessments by friends on the 
left who sadly concluded that he 
threw his life away in a moment of 
tragic miscalculation. 

Samos Calderon believes that 
“with foe same honesty and love 
for his fellow man — for he was 
never dogmatic — he would today 
be expounding non-violent 
change." That is probably true, 
given foe persistent senseless 
brutality of discredited insurgent 
groups such as the April 19 
movement despite Betancur's 
genuine attempts to make peace 
with them. 

But foe root of foe violence — 
the grinding poverty suffered by 
too many Colombians — remains, 
and it is taking all of foe Pope's 
considerable public relations skills 
to convince the many critics here 
that his visit is noL like the World 
Cup. an unnecessary and costly 
own goal for a poor, debt-ridden • 
nation to concede.

When a friend's playful labrador 
seized my cricket box and dis- 
appeared with it into impenetrable 
gorse bushes I was thankful that 
my innings was over. 

For long, gone are the trusting 
days when several pink “prot-.

to mention whether he has ever

aluminium box which the dog ran

thing of an heirloom. I was not au

"What's wrong?" snapped 
Tracey. By this time most of

■ Whatever may be the immedi- 
ate impact of the Peacock 
gW*- It can tardiy fail in the 

- longer tenn to exercise a strong 

- injuencc- on thinking and 
policy about broadcasting. Th e 
report is essentially the first 

4 attempt in this country to look 

■ ^ -broadcasting policy from 
fast principles. It asks the 
sjmpfc, .essential questions: 
How is broadcasting different 
from, other services? What are 
the, -implications . for regula- 
tion? How can regulation be 
made effective, and yet inter- 
fere as little as possible with 
individual choice in a free 
society? Fordecades to come, 
sejiqus.. analysis of broadcast- 
ing policy will start with this 
report. - 


ENDING THE DUOPOLY 


sale of silent night time TV 
^ GUI X and a requirement that 
the BBC, wer a 10-year pe- 
riod, increase its proportion of 
JV programmes made by 
independent producers, to 40 
percent of the total. The last is 
especially ' important: 
broadcasting as much as Fleet 
Street has. been the victim of 

high production costs -fuelled 
by powerful in-house-unions. 


programming. Their individ- 
ual choices would determine 
the outcome. 


■-The., committee members 
faced it dilemma. They could 
find little to- recommend that 
was both immediate and rad- 


A ieal. They sensibly chose to 
9 make their main, contribution 


not to the. present, but to the 
future." ".• 


: The prospects they hold out 
aTefcenerally attactive: a genu- 
inely. . consumer-dominated 
market in video publishing; 
with' publicly-subsidized, 
production playing an im- 
portant, but definitely second- 
ary, role. In the end, that is the 
only broadcasting policy suit- 
able to a free society. The 
Peacock Committee has done 
a- 'great service, in stating this 
vjnth such clarity and vigour. 


Bui competitive tendering 
for ITV franchises provoked a 
4:3 split in the committee. We 
can. see why the minority was 
hesitant about the enforceabil- 
ity of contract conditions . 
where a company turns out to 
have made losses. On balance, 
however, we are with the 
majority: a loss-making com- 
pany that has made a mistake 
can always give up its fran- 
chise and so avoid any future 
rental payments. 

Deregulation of cable TV, 
which Would .pemiit British 
Telecom and Mercury to act as 
common carriers of cable 
programming, and would re- 
move all restrictions on pay- 
per-channel and pay-per- 
programme, will also serve to 
open up the market in video 
delivery, systems. The viewer 
would then enjoy the same 
wide range of choice as the 
magazine reader now enjoys at 
a bookstall. On the principle 
that competition is the best 
amidore-io sloth, we welcome 
that 


Now. the committee 
presents some evidence — and 
there is- more of the anecdotal 
kind - that most people would 
be happy to see some ads On 
the BBC in return for a lower 
licence fee. Bur it goes on to 
assert that if advertising were 
introduced on BBC, people 
would regret the eventual re- 
sult because programme qual- 
ity would decline. Is this really 
so? What warrant have we for 
believing it? 


Peacock offers elaborate ev- 
idence and argument that full 
funding of the BBC by 
advertising — would lead to an 
unwanted decline in pro- 
gramme standards. Even if 
that were the case, these 
arguments would apply much 
less surely to limited advertis- 
ing. And it is on the subject of 
limited advertising that the 
report is short and unsatisfac- 
tory. It concludes that selling 
even small amounts of 
advertising (say, 10 minutes 
per night on BBC 1 only be- 
tween 7pm and 9pm only) 
would require the BBC to 
match its rivals in the search 
for mass audiences, and that 
the range and quality of pro- 
grammes would, suffer. 


_ Tlfe report proposes a three 
stage model for the evolution 
. of broadcasting based upon the 
“ application of new broadcast- 
ing technologies. They are the 
status quo. plus indexation of 
the BBC license fee; “direct 
subscription” to broadcasting 
organisations in which the 
BBC would be . financed, 
through voluntary subscrip- 
tions as Teletext is today; and, 
finally, multiplicity of choice 
in a completely free market in. 
video publishing. This- pro- 
vider clearly marked path for 
future decision-making. And if 
we eventually skip the middle - 
stage — subscription financing - 
, --and go directly from_fte : 
k current system-. m-~i 

tibbal network with unfimited' 
* video publishing, / then so.- 
much the better. 


There must be one main 
reservation about the Peacock 
Report on the subject of 
advertising the very subject 
that provoked the government 
into setting up the committee 
in the first place. The Peacock 
Committee’s efforts to per- 
suade us. against advertising 
ha ve persuaded us that there is 
indeed room for limited 
advertising on the BBC as a 
second-best compromise be- 
tween full consumer ' choice 
and the present system of 
public impost . . . 


We find that claim in- 
credible. If the BBC cannot sell 
more than a few minutes and 
cannot sell outside restricted 
hours, then how could its 
incentive to make minority 
programmes suffer outside 
those hours? And the status 
quo is here presented in far too 
rosy and unrealistic a light? 
Are we really asked to believe 
that the BBC could go much 
further down-market from 
EasiEnders and Dallas ' ? . 


The committee's arguments 
on this are weak. It has in 
practice \ treated \ broadcast 
advertising as a milch cbw for 
TV' 'pipgranine-makers, _ in- . 
deed, as a i perfectly suitable 
subject for monopolistic pric- 
ing. ■ 


:The committee's analysis of 
the “comfortable duopoly” of 
BBC and ITV has led it to 
recommendations for present 
policy that deserve to be 
endorsed: the privatization of 
Radios One and Two, the 
auctioning of direct 
broadcating by satellite (DBS) 
franchises, the ’ auctioning' of 
any new radio frequencies, the 


But let us apply the 
Committee’s own logic. In a 
well-functioning- market for 
video programmes, such as the 
Committee foresees in stage 
three, consumers would face a 
choice in . the video 
“magazines” that were oh 
offer a lower cover price in 
return for taking some ads or a 
higher price for ad-free 


Anxiety is expressed in Pea- 
cock that some advertising 
would be the thin edge of the 
wedge, and New Zealand is 
cited as an example. But 
tumbling down the slippery 
slope, though always possible, 
is far from inevitable. The 
report admits as much when, 
in -the. . same paragraph, it- 
describes welt-functioning lim- 
ited advertising in Italy. We 
are prepared, if Peacock is not, 
to' trust citizens not to demand 
or support unwise extensions 
of advertising in the future.. 


It is time to experiment with 
a little advertising on the BBC. 
The alternative, after all, is to 
accept an ever-rising license 
fee, increased public resent- 
ment. and the continuation of 
the BBCs uncomfortable exis- 
tence as. half sacred cow, half 
political football 


SOUTH AFRICA VERSUS THE BANKS

required of a modern diplomat

is to put quite different glosses 
on your country’s position to 
suit different audiences. But 
modern communications can 
make this a dangerous game. 
Dp Denis Worrall, who has an 
unenviable job as South 
Africa’s London ambassador, 
discovered this to. his cost on 
Tuesday night when he gave 
evidence to the Commons 
Foreign Affairs Committee. 

.The burden of his evidence 
was that Mrs Thatcher’s at- 
tempt to bring South Africa 
imp a . post-apartheid era 
peacefully, by giving white 
voters something to grasp, was 
more likely to bring peaceful 
change than hostile aggression 
of the confrontation implied 
fc by thoroughgoing sanctions. 

' The. surprise was all the 
greater, therefore, when Dr 
Worrall said that South Africa 
might refuse to pay its debts if 
sanctions put it into an ex- 
treme position. 

That may seem a statement 
of the obvious, since a ban on 
exports would presumably de- 
prive the'country of the where- 
withal .to pay its debts. But Dr 
Worrall made it sound like a 

threat/Debtor countries round 

the .world were waiting for 
someone to create a precedent 
by -reneging, he declared, ana 
. such a step kv would bring down 
9 ihe ■ whole ' world • financial 

system.'’ * : 

Even to a British political 
audience, such a threat was 
badly misjudged. Bui rtdui npt 
takeJong to reach the. bankers. 
That transformed it int0 . 4 
dangerous gaffe — p ne 
perhaps incalculable cons-- 

equences for South Africa- Mr 

Barend • Du Plessis, South 
* Africa's finance minister, was 
obliged- to move swiftly to put 
an entirely different complex- . 

ion on the country’s intentions 

to that crucial audience, bui 
the damage had been done. 

As-it is; South Africa is an 
embarrassment to inter- 


national banks. President 
Botha’s government is not 
awash with debt, but South 
African companies have bor- 
rowed around the world and 
the country depends on credit 
lines to finance its trade. Last 
summer, American banks with 
$4 billion of loans or credit 
lines to South Africa came 
under intense pressure from 
customer lobby groups to 
withdraw. Enough did so to 
create a foreign exchange cri- 
sis, forcing Pretoria to re- 
introduce two-tier exchange 
controls and declare a mora- 
torium on S 14 billion of short" 
term * debts — a startling 
example of private sanctions 
at work. • 

Having created their own 
problem, the banks caused 
themselves more embarrass- 
ment by agreeing to what 
amounted to a rescheduling of 
payments with South Africa in 
order to safeguard their 
money. This was achieved by 
the diplomacy of the senior 
Swiss banker,. Dr - Fritz 
Leutwiler, former president of 
the Bank for International 
Settlements and it was based 
partly on the understanding 
that any financial breathing 
space created would be used 
for political progress in dis- 
mantling apartheid. 

As Mr Du Plessis is at pains 
to point 'oin. South Africa has 
kept to its financial agreement 
It has reduced its borrowings 
and intends to continue doing 
so. The banks have kept trade 
finance flowing. But the fragil- 
ity of this situation was under- 
lined ' yesterday when Dr 
Leutwiler chose, apparently by 
coincidence, to announce that 
he was withdrawing from ms 
role as mediator beaiuse lie 
believes South Africa has 
made insufficient political- 
progress. . 

it remains to be seen 
whether that will have- any 

immediate effect. A review (rf 

South Africa's economy was 
due in September, while the 


next full negotiations are not 
due until next summer. Bank- 
ers know that refusing to pay is 
always the last desperate op- 
tion to which a central bank 
can turn if aH else fails. But Dr 
Worrall has unwittingly 
emphasized the risks that the 
banks are running, thereby 
weakening the commercial 
argument against calls to with- 
draw loans and making it 
harder- to maintain financial 
confidence. 

The suggestion that South 
Africa could bring the world 
banking system down by 
reneging looks a profound 
miscalculation. A year ago, big 
debtor countries in Latin 
America, feeling the worst of 
the pains of readjustment, 
might well have been tempted 
to follow if South Africa had 
been the first lemming over 
the cliff. But that moment 
appears, to have passed. 
Progress in adjustment, bank 
flexibility and the Baker plan 
have all shifted the balance of 
advantage towards maintain- 
ing confidence for the future. If 
anything, bankers now have an 
interest in taking a tougher line 
on South Africa, since special 
treatment there would be 
seized upon as a precedent by 
such troubled debtors as Ni- 
geria — whereas South Africa is 
perhaps the. only debtor coun- 
try against whom harsh retali- 
ation would ‘arouse no 
indignation. 

South -Africa's, financial 
difficulties are essentially- the. 
result of a political run on its 
currency rather than an im- 
balance of trade or excessive 
borrowing. Because.ihe coun- 
try plays a disproportionate 
role in Africa's trade. British 
banks active'm.lhe continent, 
as well as more recent German 
participants, have much to 
lose. The global calculations 
are, however, quite- different 
from those in the general debt 
crisis. South Africa needs the 
goodwill of the banks more 
than the banks need South 
Africa.

Stricter curb on

Hospital economy 

From Mr Peter Ring 
Sir. During the month or August it 
is proposed that the theatre I use at 
Dorking Hospital should close, 
ostensibly to save money, al- 
though none of the administrators 
can identify what, if any, savings 
might occur. 

For four weeks some of the 
nursing staff both my house

anaesthetist with whom 1 .work 
and I wHi btTpaki to do nothing; 
the theatre will stand idle, the 
wards half-empty and some 40 
patients who are heavily disabled 
with arthritic changes in their hip 
joints will remain untreated in 
addition to many with lesser 
afflictions. With a waiting list of 
some 2S0 similarly disabled pa- 
tients I feel I must protest 
The Griffiths report envisaged a 
commercial style of management 
but in business, customers who are

The Blue Riband 

From Mr Ralph Vincent 
Sir. In 1931 1 crossed the Atlantic 
in the ss Bristol City, of Bristol a 
ship of 2.858 tons gross, laden 
with a cargo of china c(ay. 

On July 12 1 made this entry in 
my Diary: 

A good day. the ship doing about 10 
knots. After dinner smoke appeared 
on the horizon, then a packet of 
funnels: very soon the Mauretania 
hove in sight. She passed us like a 
racehorse about five miles off the 
starboard beam. Soon out of sight. 

Such were the ships which held 
the Blue Riband. Without 
denigrating the wonderful crossing 
of Virgin Atlantic Challenger II 
and the courage of her crew, we are 
just not comparing like with like.

UGC evaluation under attack 


From Dr David V. Foster 
Sir. TTie introduction of the Road 
Safely Act, nearly 20 years ago. 
marked the end of. an era. An 
important change was that experts 
and professional witnesses such as 
myself were, to a very large extent, 
taken out of the arena of legal 
conflict in drink-drive cases. 

My experience and statistical 
evidence showed that the results 
of blood and urine analysis, 
coupled with expert and pro- 
fessional opinions, had a minimal 
effect on the outcome of such 
cases prior to 1967. 

1 welcomed most warmly the 
Road Safety Act. The blood and 
urine tests conducted by indepen- 
dent forensic scientists, coupled 
with the procedural safeguards, 
ensured that the chance of an 
innocent motorist being convicted 
was indeed beyond all reasonable 
doubt 

We should have serious quahns 
about reintroducing the opinions 
of experts in this field in regard to 
back-caJcuJation (report. June 27). 
The clear-cut case merges so 
imperceptibly with the blurred 
case as to be a positive menace to 
clear and accurate thinking. 

May I draw attention to the 
HMSO publication. Report on 
Alcohol Measuring Instruments. 
in which were the words of Sir 
William Paton. FRS. in his letter 
to the Home Secretary: 

I incline to think that lowering the 
limit (from SOmg Mood to SOmg. 
say) might be a more straightforward 
next step than trying to combine a 
revision of the penalty structure. 
Before such steps are taken. I would 
hope that the problem of “unjusti- 
fied non- prosecution” as well as that 
of “unjust prosecutions*' is debated 
more fully. 

Lowering the legal limit in line 
with perceived public opinion is of 
very great importance. Back- 
calculation is a difficult and 
fraught issue and while it is being 
discussed the major matter, lower- 
ing the limit, ought to have much 
greater predominance. 

Yours faithfully, 

D. V. FOSTER,

From Professor Emeritus Bernard 
Crick 

Sir. David Walker’s otherwise 
most thoughtful and incisive arti- 
cle (June 20) on the threat to part- 
time higher degree studies as 
embodira in Biricbeck College is 
unhappily misleading in. one re- 
spect. He speculates that one of 
the background factors might have 
been that by the University Grants 
Committee’s recent assessment 
“five of IBirkbeck'sl subject areas 
rank as below average, four are 
average and two better than 
average”. 

That seems to me. in any case, 
not far below average: but the 
UGCs assessment related only to 
research: it specifically disclaimed 
any ability or intent to assess 
teaching. 

Publishing research 4 assess- 
ments. on undisclosed criteria, to 
explain the ups and downs of 
grants has caused trouble enough 
in universities, since they will be 
used internally to raise up some 
departments and cast down others 
irrespective of the demand for 
subject and the value of the 
education offered (why most par- 
ents. after all. want their children 
to go to university): but it would 
be stupid philistinism indeed ij 
they were applied to an institution 
which, as I know from experience, 
has some excellent areas of re- 
search but none the less was 
founded to teach adults by night 
and finds its continuing and 
unique purpose in doing that at 
the highest levels. 

How sad if readers were led to 
think that Birkbeck’s great teach- 
ing reputation stands condemned. 
That is not so. It has simply and 
recklessly been ignored. 

I wonder, also, if David Walker 
is right to see this simply as part of 
the “government assault on higher 
education generally”? There has 
been such an assault, indeed, but 
the odd and unexplained thing 
about the threat to Birkbeck is that 
the encouragement of second- 
chance and self-help for mature 
evening students, who are serious, 
hardworking and. moreover, pay 
their own fees, is rare but dear 
common ground between the 
thinking of til the major political 
parties.

the letter i 
25) suggests that the UGC may be 
defective in arithmetical knowl- 
edge. This is not the first time that 
the UGC’s knowledge of 
arithmetic has been challenged. 

Their medical sub-committee 
visited Cambridge in 1982. We 
submined a document to them 
indicating that their previous 
recommendation that the clinical 
school should have “a dispropor- 
tionate cut” when the whole 
university was cut by 5 per cent 
was based on an arithmetical 
fallacy. 

Our clinical school at that time 
was accused of being unduly 
expensive. One of the factors 
taken into account is the cost per 
student and in broad terms this is 
based on the money paid by the 
UGC each year divided by the 
total number of students. If the 
course were three years, the figure 
is divided by three: since our 
course is two years and three 
months, the divisor is smaller and 
the cost inevitably comes out 
higher. 

We presented them with a paper 
showing that if the cost per year 
were divided by the number of 
doctors turned out per year, the 
Cambridge clinical school was 
halfway down the cost league. 

As a result, the clinical school 
took an initial 12 per cut, later 
reduced to 8 per cent. Most of that 
cut was inflicted on the Depart- 
ment of Medicine (three lecturer 
posts suppressed). Now the UGC 
assessment of universities states 


that they are disappointed with 
)f the 


clinical 


I have no love for this Govern- 
ment, but the blame more likely 
lies with the priorities of the UGC 
Some vice>chancel]ors must still 
think that teaching adult part-time 
students is below the salt, a matter, 
for the polytechnics or for “dis- 
tance learning” in the Open 


University, and are desperate to 
theii 


defend their own at any cost, 
whom they rigidly conceive as the 
straight-from-schools. 

I hope the Secretary of Slate can 
find some way of protecting 
Birkbeck against, what I suspert to 
be academic traditionalism 
unthinkingly exercised against 


the achievements of 
school in Cambridge. ■ 

In 20-odd years the Department 
of Medicine alone has turned out 
19 students with PhD degrees. I 
wonder how many other clinical 
departments of medicine have 
exceeded this. In addition we have 
provided one professor of medi- 
cine and the head of physiology in 
another university. 

One wonders how much faith to 
have in the recent UGCs assess- 
ments of university departments; 
but the axe is felling all the same.

All together now? 

From Dr Nicholas Penny 
Sir. On Tuesday. July 15, the 
trustees of the Fitzwilliam Settle- 
ment will sell at Christie’s four 
statues of goddesses by Joseph 
Nollekens. In a learned contribu- 
tion to the catalogue John Ken- 
worth y-Browne stresses the 
historical interest of these works, 
which are among the most beauti- 
ful and earliest neo-classical gal- 
lery sculptures in Europe. 


Cricket decline 

From Mr M. P. Matthews 
Sir. We are now, I believe, the only 
school in ILEA who attempt to 
play inter-school afternoon and 
weekend cricket for the fell age 
range. 

Recent years have seen a steady 
decline in the number of possible 
opponents so that we are cow 
unable to fill a fixture list for our 
1st XL In addition the general 
lowering of standards makes even 
cricket for the younger age groups 
unattractive with all but a few of 
the maintained schools. 

Sadly I can foresee the death of 
cricket at a school where there are 
boys clamouring to play the game 
and staff willing to coach and run 
sides properly because the author- 
ity will not provide pitches that 
are safe to use. We are already 
forced to play all our 1st XI 
matches as “away” fixtures. 

Yours faithfully.

What no one seems to have 
noticed, however, is that three of 
the statues form a group. The nude 
Venus removes her sandal. Juno 
rather reluctantly unwinds her 
drapery, and Minerva raises her 
helmet, each with her eyes on a 
dazzled mortal male. 

An inventory of the furnishings 
of the second Marquess of 
Rockingham's house in Grosve- 
nor Square (among the Went- 
worth Woodhouse muniments 
deposited in Sheffield- Central 
Library) reveals that they were 
originally displayed in a ground- 
floor room, together with an 
“antique marble figure" of Paris, 
all on mahogany pedestals. It must 
have been the need to make sense 
of the classical statue which 
stimulated this unprecedented 
commission. 

The Director of the Walker Art 
Gallery in Liverpool has suggested 
that a statue to be sold at Christie's 
on July 16, in a sale of fine 
antiquities, is this statue of Paris. 
It is earnestly to be hoped that the 
four statues can be acquired for a 
public collection in this country so 
that this group - the most 
ambitious and impressive nar- 
rative group of its kind ever 
attempted by an English sculptor 
— can be recreated.

ON THIS DAY 


JULY 4 1859 


The Times was in no doubt. 10 
days after the bloody battle of 
Salfer.ino. as to the decisive factors' 
in the Austrian defeat, and the 
lessons to be learned by our 
Government from it This extract 
is taken from a leading article. 

A Swiss humanitarian, Jean 
Henri Duncmt (1828-1910) later 
proposed the formation of 
voluntary relief services in all . 
countries for the wounded; this led 
in 1864 to the founding of the Red. 
Cross, for which in 1901 he (with 
Frederic Pasty) was awarded the n 
first Nobel peace prize. 


[the battle of! 
L SOLFERINO J 


This Battle of Solferino Olus 
crates upon a great scale the 
character of the two antagonists. 
Its phases and its (acts are aJf 
recorded. Its indelible picture .is 
graven upon all our minds. Aided 
by the experience of correspon- 
dents in either camp • thos£ 
heralds of sacred ana peaceful 
mission - we have followed the 
Austrian Emperor to and from the 

fight, and the French Emperor 
throughout his advance. We havel 
twice seen the field from the “Spy 
of Italy”, and have surveyed it 
alternately through French and 
Austrian glasses. Today the Battle 
of Solferino takes its place in 
history the shape in which it wiU 
be known for evermore. It was a 
great and sanguinary battle, fierce- 
ly contested by nearly 400,000 men 
from sunrise to sunset of a summer 
day; and it was a battle in whichj 
the Austrians were defeated, but 
not broken, by an enemy inferior in 
numbers but superior in intelli- 
gence and arms. While the mind of] 
Europe is yet excited by the details 
of this mighty carnage, and is^ 
growing familiar with the events off 
the battle, it is time for us to point 1 
the moral of the catastrophe . - ■ 

In this very engagement, accord- 
ing to the official accounts of each 
army, the Austrians killed and 
wounded 12,000 Frenchmen, with 
a loss to themselves of but 9JHXH 
killed and wounded. There couldj 
have been no flight when the the 
numbers stand thus at the end oft 
the day. Nor are the Austrians 
inferior as marksmen. Their Rifle- 
men hit 720 French officers,; 
whereof 120 were shot dead, while 
the French succeeded in killing and 
wounding only 230 of the Austrian 
officers. They certainly are not 
inferior to the French in disci : J 
pline- Their vis inertias is magnif- 
icent, and they retreat invariably 
with a bold, steady front, to the foe: 
Why is it, then, that they who can 
lose so valiantly can never win?- 
Because, unfortunately for them, 
present knowledge is present pow- 
er, and their knowledge is not of 
the present, but of the past They, 
are a stagnating respectability. 
They are governed and directed hy- 
oid rules, old men, and old routine. 
They have an enemy who does. not 
care a centime for antiquity, and is-) 
not above taking the most irregular 
methods to win a victory. The 
Emperor of AUSTRIA makes up 
his mind to do a remarkably fine 
piece of LOUIS QUARTORZE 
strategy. He executes an elaborate 
piece of old-fashioned deception, 
crossing the Mineio with his whole 
force, and then recrossing it witlfj; 
his two hundred thousand men, 
and fixing the contemplated sur- 
prise of the enemy at 9 o'clock in 
the morning. The Emperor of thej 
FRENCH, representing the juve- 
nile irregular school in the most 
iin gunrlpmnnlikp manner refuses to 
be surprised. 

Having recourse to a new- 
fangled expedient which no trust- 
worthy veteran who can count his- 
seventy years would condescend to 
use, he sends a man up in a balloon; 
and. at the expense of a few yards 
of silk and a few square feet of gas, 
is (old the exact position of all 
those masses which are drawn up 
so scientifically out of his sight 
with the intention of surprising' 
him at the comfortable, leisurely ' 
hour, of 9 am. The man of his time 
- the clever, active, shrewd, noth-’ 
mg-condemning adventurer of the 
nineteenth century, by dint of this 
small contrivance, becomes master 
of the position. He knows what is. 
going to happen and where his * ' 
enemy is, and how many he is; and 
while the heavy, self-complacent 
Austrian, is chuckling at the formal . - 
surprise that is to come off at g* . 
a-m- he attacks at daybreak, . 
chooses his own time and point of' ' 
attack, and remains master of the 
field - 


Penal shortcomings 


Milkman’s hazards Uniform discomfort 


From Mr J. Pearson 
Sir. May I reassure Captain 
Douds, RN (June 25) that milk- 
men have no problems. They 
work in the small hours, and their 
vehicles (left or right hand drive 
does not matter) have open sides; 
the milkman dismounts quite 
happily from either side of his 
float 

I should know: many years ago I 
did that very job — and never was I 
fitter! 

Yours truly.

Theatrespeed-up 

From Mr John Tibiier 
Sir, On several visits to the theatre 
recently we have always noticed 
the hold-ups in attempting to take 
our seats by people queuing to 
purchase programmes. 

Surely, when purchasing tickets, 
one could be asked if a programme 
is required. If purchasing the 
tickets from an agency, the vendor 
could issue a voucher exchange- 
able in the theatre for the pro- 
gramme. 

Yours faithfully.

From .Mr A. J. Ougham 
Sir. On June 29, with tem- 
peratures approaching 30‘C. 
Prince Andrew expressed concern 
about his comfort during the 
wedding, for which he is required 
to wear uniform, if July 23 should 
be anything like as hot (report. 
June 30). 

I am sure he speaks for the large 
number of men who have had 
what should have been enjoyable 
occasions ruined by the conven- 
tion that decrees uncomfortable 
-formal” .clothes, while the 
women remained cod and 
comfortable. 

Even the ordinary “business 
suit” must have an adverse effect 
on health and woriting efficiency 
in high temperatures, yet the 
fashion has now spread to the 
people of tropical lands whose 
ancestors had the sense to dress for 
their climate. 

Is it too much to hope that the 
world’s political leaders will set a 
better example next time they 
hold a “summit” in the heal of 
summer? If they felt more 
comfortable they might even start 
to agree! 

Yours faithfully.

From Lord Hunt 
Sir. Everyone who is concerned 
about penal policy in the United 
Kingdom and the quality of 
British justice will welcome the 
initiative of the Justices' Clerks

number of youth, custody orders; > 
available to magistrates under ih£ ' 
provisions of the Criminal Justice ; 
Act 1982. is running at more than * 


30.000 a year. Youth custody 


Society in calling for a sentencing 


commission under the Lord Chie 
Justice (report June 23). 

This country has good cause to 
be proud of its judicial system, 
which has provided a model for 
many other countries; nor would 
any fair-minded person question 
the integrity and high standards of 
magistrates' courts. None the less, 
a sample of 600 petty sessions has 
shown that there is a divergence in 
sentencing of young males to 
custody between 6.1 per cent in 
one part of the country and 29.4 
per cent in another. Wide dif- 
ferences exist even between 
neighbouring courts, which can- 
not be convincingly explained by 
differences in local circumstances. 

The recent guidance issued by 
the Home Office, The Sentence of 
the Court, was a useful step in the 
desired direction: but there is a 
strong case for further initiatives 
than have been taken so far. 
which, while respecting the basic 
principle of the independence of 
the judiciary, will achieve greater 
consistency in sentencing. 

There is a further point. Britain 
has no cause to be proud of the 
fact that as a percentage of the 
population more offenders are 
sent to prison than' any other 


centres are full and a number of 
young offenders receiving this *- 
sentence are having to serve it in" 
the more rigorous and less’^; 
constructive conditions of deten-r” 
lion centres. 

There is a most urgent need to * 
encourage magistrates to make- 
greater use of a range of non- ; 
custodial sentences available to- 
them which are. to say the least, no, . 
less effective in the gre at majority » 
of cases and cost the taxpayer a.:, 
great deal less money. 

Yours truly.

French furniture prices soar 


By Geraldine NonnartSale Room Correspondent 

Prices for French furniture same way, sellin g for £70,200 he was unemployed in the 

(estimate £25,000 to £35J)0Q). 


went through the roof at 
Christie's yesterday. Veneered 
in rare woods and encrusted 
with ormolu, it is the grandest 
furniture ever made but clients 
for such expensive products 
are very choosy and most 
auctions contain a mix of high 
prices and expensive failures. 

Yesterday only three per 
cent was left unsold with a 
total of £1,769.202, and there 
was keen bidding on almost 
everything. 

The most: startling prices 
were for qmrky and original 
designs. A Louis XYHJ ormo- 
lu gueridon with a porphyry 
top sold for £97,200 (estimate 
£15,000 to £20,000) with 
quantities of private buyers 
competing. Acanthus leaves 
and pineapples feature in the 
scrolling ormolu base. 

A Russian ormolu-mounted 
mahogany and satinwood cen- 
tre table was pounced on in the 


Ormolu-mounted porcelain 
was very much 'in' 1 with a 
garniture of three blade Chi- 
nese vases frith handsome 
mounts at £48,600 (estimate 
£15,000 to £20,000) and a 
mounted celadon bowl at 
£29,160 (estimate £3,000 to 
£4,000). Both had the added 
tour of coming from the 
ewood family. 

The Duke of Bocdench's 
name gave a similar boost to a 
Louis XV ldngwood commode 
which brought £124200 (esti- 
mate £60,000 to £80,000). 

At Sotheby's the first naval 
Victoria Cross seen at auction 
secured £31,900 (estimate 
£24,000 to £26,000). It was 
won by Seaman 
J-J.Magennis, a diver, for 
attaching charges to a Japa- 
nese ship and sinking it ■ 
The only Ulsterman to win a 
VC in the Second World War, 


bleak postwar years aid sold 
his medal, saying; 1 * What is 
the use of a medal when you 
need money for your family to 
live?” A wellwisher bought it 
for £75 and returned it to him 
on condition that he would not 
seif ft m his lifetime. 

The morning sale of sculp- 
ture and works of art from the 
collection formed by Tom 
Bora at Rons Leach made 
£288,002 with 7 per cent 
unsold. The two days of sales 
devoted to his collection have 
totalled £2,085,655- 

The star turn was a 
lim ewood relief carving of 
Queen Anne set among flow- 
ers and fruit, by Grinling 
Gibbons or his workshop, 
which made £20,900 (estimate 
£15,000 to £20JKM>). The af- 
ternoon works of arf sale 
included a rare German bronze 
agna manil e of the early , fif- 
teenth century at £44,000 -

DR NORMAN HEAPS 


Dr Norman Heaps, the 
applied mathematician Ixst 
known for his development of 
computer models for tides and 
storm suites, died on June 26, 
aged 58, after a long illness. 

His work provided an im- 
portant dement in the fore- 
casting of potentially 
dangerous sea movements 
around the coasts. 

Norman Stuart Heaps was 
bom in Prescot, Lancashire, 
and educated at Prescot 
Grammar School and Liver- 
pool University. After gradu- 
ating, with honours, in 
mathematics in 1949, he 
worked for several years on 
aircraft dynamics. 

In 1959, he was appointed 
senior lecturer in mathematics 
at Salford, where be developed 
an abiding - interest in the 
natural oscillations of lake 
waters, studying the motions 
of Lake Windemere, and later 
the Great Lakes of North 
America. 

However, it was his ap- 
pointment in 1962 to the 
Liverpool Tidal Institute (now 
the Institute of Oceanographic 
Sciences, at Bidston, near 
Birkenhead), which initialed 
his most important work. 

At that time, exceptionally 
high sea levels (storm surges), 
due to the weather, were 
forecast only a few hours 
ahead by m hoc formulae 
derived empirically. 

Heaps developed a range of 
computer techniques for pre- 
dicting the movements of the 


seas surrounding Britain, in- 
cluding detailed .studies. of' 
tidal barrage schemes. - ' 

His storm-surge zhodd^aie 
now used routinely . at -the . 
Meteorological Office, 'in tan- 
dem with their weather fbre- 
cast models, to give advance' 
warning of dangerousW iagh 
sea levels around the XJK.^ 
Part of his achievement was 
the building up of a team of 
workers, including a steady, 
succession of research ^stu- 
dents, who flourished under , 
his wise and considerate 
guidance. 

Thus his 

of the stnicture of currents 
shallow seas, and their .rela- 
tionship with flows in . the: 
deeper ocean beyond (topics 
now of increasing interest and 
concern), will be maintained: 

The work of Heaps an&his 
team won high acclaim from 
marine scientists and engi- 
neers all over the world. - 
. The significance of his work 
was acknowledged in 1973 by 
the award of a Liverpool 
University DSc, and in 1978 
he became an “individual 
merit'' senior principal scien- 
tific officer. 

He served on several inter- 
national groups concerned 
with shelfsea oceanography.? 

Heaps was a kind man with 
a friendly and helpful, ap- 
proach to all who sought ins 
advice, always showing a par- 
ticular concern for the long- 
term careers of those who 
worked under him.

US study links obesity to heredity 


By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


Obesity is largely a matter of 
heredity, according to research- 
ers who have conducted the 
largest stady yet on the matter. 

The study, in wiring more 
than 4,000 pairs of male twins, 
compared identical twins - those 
which originated from a single 
egg at fertilization - with ra- 
tentsl twins, conceited from two 
fertilized eggs. 

Researchers at the University 
of Pennsylvania found that cases 
where both twins were fat were 
twice as high among identical 
sets as among the others. 

“• These studies suggest a 
strong genetic influence on hu- 
man fatness and obesity", a 
report in this week's issue of the 
Journal of die American Medical 
Association concludes. 


The evidence is probably the 
strongest yet to emerge support- 


ing the genetic theory In obesity. 

The findings were drawn from 
a registry maintained by the 
National Academy of Science - 
National Research CbnndL The 
registry contains information on 
more than 15,000 sets of male 
twins bora in the United States 
between 1917 and 1927, who 
served In the armed forces 
daring the Second World War or 
the Korean War. 

They were measured for 
height and weight when inducted 
Into the armed forces. A follow- 
up survey of over 4,000 of the 
sets of twins asked, what their 
height and weight had become. 

Previous studies have sug- 
gested heredity plays a major 
role in the tendency to put on 
weight, but there has been much 
debate among international ex- 
perts about the value of existit^ 
evidence. 


One possible genetic explana- 
tion is that people who are fat, or 
will ‘ become fat., are 
“programmed" to use the energy 
they absorb from food more 
efficiently than thin people. 

Thus, the obese, use less 
energy for any activity, including 
their resting metabolism, smi 
the excess energy from food is 
converted into fat and stored. . 


Previous surveys have shown 
that four out of five tat childrea 
become obese ad nils, and half of 
obese adults had an obese 
parent 


But sceptical researches have 
commented that familial' obesity 
may be behavioural rather than 
genetic. Pat parents may have 
rat children simply because the 
family are big eaters who enjoy) 
their food more than the 
average.

An Impudent Girl (L’Effrontee), 
which enjoyed a big success at the 
French box-office earlier this year, 
is an attractive mixture of Hans 
Andersen fairy-tale and acute, af- 
fectionate psychological observa- 
tion of adolescence such as 
distinguished Gaude Miller's first 
feature. La MeiUeure Facon de 
marcher. There Miller dealt with 
the growing pains of boys; here his 
protagonist is a J3-year-oJd girl. 

Charlotte is at the awkward age 
and lets everyone know it. She is 
full of yearnings that she cannot 
define, except to know that they are 
not satisfied by her shabby home 


and by bickering with father, 
brother, housekeeper and a sickly, 
demanding, funny moppet from 
across the way. She glimpses and 
falls madly in love with her ideal: a 
piano prodigy of her own age. as 
pretty and good as she is plain and 
obstreperous. The Hans Andersen 
(or (Paler Babies) bil is where she 
manages to intrude herself into the 
little pianist's home and strike up a 
friendship which is much more 
intense for her than for the other, 
professionally preoccupied, child. 
After a lot of pain, she gets over it. 
just a$ she manages in time to elude 
the attentions of a gentle young 
paedophile. 

The performance of Charlotte 
Gainsbouig would in itself be 
sufficient attraction for any film. 
She is an appealing and uncompro- 
mising Plain Jane, with her un- 
manageable hair and boyish 
clothes, conveying in the same 
moment defiance and terrible vul- 
nerability. The performance is 
complemented by the other chil- 
dren: Clothilde Baudon as the 
impossibly spotless fairy-tale pia- 
nist-princess; Julie Glenn as the 
brat, with skills far in advance of 
her years in exploiting sickness as a 
blackmail weapon. 

Originally reviewed from Can- 
nes, Robert Altman’s adaptation of 
Sam Shepard's play Fool for Love 
now reaches London, revealing 
that the text does not hold up so 
well at second viewing. The deriva- 
tions from the Tennessee Williams 
and Arthur Miller of the Fifties are 
more apparent, as are the stage 


structure and the contrived last-act 
revelations that explain the tor- 
mented emotional gyrations that 
have gone before. Sometimes the 
dialogue seems calculated not so 
much to further the dramatic 
design as to give meaty scenes to 
the writer-star. 

Sam Shepard plays Eddie, a 
drifter and occasional film stunt- 
man. who has tracked down May 
(Kim Basinger) to a shanty motel 
on the edge of the desert. They pass 
the night in sparring and taunting 
each other, compulsively renewing 
the familiar misery of an old deep, 
mutual love-hate. They are ob- 
served by a cadaverous old drank 
(Harry Dean Stanton) whose role 
in their tormented history is in due 
time revealed, and are occasionally 
peppered with gunshot by a jealous 
female admirer of Eddie. 

With a less amenable text than 
he had In previous adaptations 
from the stage, Altman shows the 
same restraint and intelligence in. 
translating the material to the 
screen. The play was set in a single 
motel room; on screen Altman 
creates the whole motel complex — 
menacing with its shadowy cor- 
ners. junky buildings, garish neon, 
car-wrecks and faceless guests shuf- 
fling about their own mysterious 
business. The main characters 
roam the place like caged animals, 
cautiously spying on one another 
when they are not engaged in active 
conflict. 

Altman's work is .at its most 
intriguing in the flashbacks that

Plain Jane and pianist princess: Charlotte Gainsbonrg (left) and Clothilde Baodon in An Impudent Girl 


illustrate the last-act revelatory 
monologues. The images are al- 
ways slightly in contradiction to 
the words, enhancing the unsettling 
sense of deception, intended or not, 
that underlies the whole piece. 

This weekend the National Film 
Theatre presents a wholly unprece- 
dented event — a debate on post- 
Solidarity Poland as witnessed by 
the national cinema. Three direc- 
tors will appear to present and 
discuss their films, which express 
opposed views of ihe country after 
the traumas of Solidarity and 
martial law. The event has been 
organized with the imaginative 
cooperation of the official Polish 
Cultural Institute in London. 

In the Solidarity period Polish 


cinema developed a power and a 
determination, to ardculate na- 
tional concerns, that have very 
evidently not been wholly silenced 
Krzysztof Kieslowski's No End, 
made in 1984, is as uncompromis- 
ing in its demands for public 
honesty and its despair at the 
prevailing social atmosphere as 
anything made before martial law. 

The hero of the film (played, 
significantly, by Jerzy Radzi- 
wilowicz. the star of Wajda's Man 
of Marble and Man of Iron) 
explains at the outset that he died 
of a heart-attack before the events 
we are watching look place. Now 
he is a spectral observer of the 
aftermath of his own death, occa- 
sionally intervening benevolently. 


A well-tried old warhorse, La 
Cage aux folles is now flogged on to 
a second sequel. La Cage aux folles 
III - The Wedding, five years after 
the first. This time it has taken an 
army of scriptwriters to come up 
with a signally feeble idea for 
further adventures for the odd 
couple and their gay night-club in 
St T ropez. In order to qualify far a 
legacy, badly needed to salvage the 
Cage aux folles, the ladylike Albin 
(Michel Serrault) has to marry and 
procreate within a specified period. 
Serrault and l/go Tognazzi soldier 
gallantly on together notwithstand- 
ing the script. The director was 
Georges Lautner.

supreme virtue of this remark- 
ably original production, that 
it makes the stage always 
secondary to the score, even if 
that means, as it does mean, - 
much incoherence and some 
puzzlement in what we see. 

The great achievement of 
Mr Serban's previous produc- 
tion for the company, Tur- 
andot,was to create a perfectly 
appropriate place for the 
work: a theatre within the 
theatre. Here his procedure is 
exactly opposite, to deny the 
stage argument any stable 
identity. We begin, signifi- 
cantly, with the stage listening 
to the piL Leonore enters in 
silence, completes her cos- 
tume as Fidelio, and then 
stands stock-still to hear the 
overture. The action takes 
place within a whitewashed 
cubicle of brickwork, which 
provides a neutral environ- 
ment for a range of treatment 
from the very direct to the 
utterly abstract. 

Examples of the former 
.style abound particularly at 
the start, in the behaviour of 
Jaquino, Marzelline and 
Rocco. There are even a few 
naturalistic props, though 
those gradually slip away, and 
they are never enough to 
establish any illusion of reali- 
ty; rather the business between 
the young lovers, and Rocco ’s 
“gold" aria (with bags duly 
turning up all over the place), 
are done with wit, distance 
and stylish exaggeration as 
quotations of naturalism. It is 
rather the same with the 
treatment of Pizairo, who is a 
pantomine demon king with- 
out quite reaching the absurdi- 
ty that might imply: again, his 
dramatic appearance provides 
a colour to make an apt fit 
with the music. 

Where another colour is 
required, Mr Serban is happy 
to make a sudden change. 
Pizarro sings his aria right 
from the front of the stage, 
with black drapes behind, 
whereas the orchestral intro- 
duction to it has been inter- 
preted by while, shaven- 
headed prisoners and black- 
uniformed guards in one of 
this production's many very 
effective passages of choral 
mime. Moreover this world of 
.evil oppressing good has been 
suggested, glimpsed through 
doorways, right from the start,

and then there is immediately 
a black-out The four figures 
separate to take up stationary 
positions for the musical num- 
ber, returning afterwards, dur- 
ing another black-out to their 
original huddle. This is a 
highly successful solution to a 
notable problem, though it 
would be even better without 
the floating cut-out motifs 
imitated from Blake, which 
seem excessively didactic: 
cues to a meaning that is 
perfectly apparent and an odd 
bit of superfluousness in a 
production that generally 
trusts the music. 

Having said that though, I 
at once think of the finale, 
which very evidently divided 
opinion on Wednesday night, 
and no doubt will go on doing 
so. Let me say at once that I 
counted it an almost total 
success, shocking though it is. 

Sir Colin leads up to the last 
scene by giving a buoyant 
account of the third Leonore 
overture, which, following 
Furtwangler. Mr Serban treats 
as a recapitulation of the opera 
so far. but he does so oblique- 
ly. in a mime for children 
beautifully choreographed by 
Kate Flatt. Then the walls of 
the box fall away for another 
sublime ‘ choral tableau, but 
one with curious apparitions 
in the distance. 

The Minister is a Roman 
emperor in buskins, carrying a 
standard that is at once the 
scales of justice and the Cross 
of Christ. Further back are 


figures on stilts representing 
two archangels and assorted 
devils, tottering as illustra- 
tions of the war in Heaven 
that as this oratorical final 
chorus implies, we have been 
witnessing. Whilethey remain 
there, in some of the magnifi- 
cent shadows of Robert 
Bryan’s lighting, all is well, 
and it is a gross error to'bring 
them forward and - make them 
more physical presences. Even 
so. they are highly striking 
elements of Sally Jacobs's 
design. 

Powerful too is the cast 
Elizabeth Connell began 
slightly colourlessly and with 
some lack of dynamic control, 
but she became at the end a 
finely radiant Leonore: it 
would be understandable if 
she had been stirred by James 
King's nobility of spirit and 
flavourftiJ sound as Floreslan. 
Marie McLaughlin provides a 
wholly delicious Marzelline, 
Laurence Dale au attractive 
Jaquino and Gwynne Howell 
a totally sympathetic Rocco. 
Hartmui Welker as Pizarro 
was perhaps a mite too con- 
cerned to sound as nasty as he 
looked. 

Paul Griffiths 


Those with exceptionally good 
memories, or else vested inter- 
ests in the English Bach 
Festival, may remember that 
my enjoyment of their Teseo 
at Covent Garden a year ago 
was a little less than complete. 
Tom Hawkes provides the 
EBF with a production in 
which contemporary Handeli- 
an convention is all: minutely 
studied baroque gesture, mas- 
sively luxurious costumes of 
swishing silk with plumes 
which fan the air, and chande- 
liers which remain whether 
the scene be a Palladia!) 
irompe-l’oeil perspective, an 
Arcadian grove or the jaws of 
Hell. 

Last July, its musical and 
physical realization, rather 
than its concept failed to 


convince me. This time I can 
recommend you to get a 
ticket In a performing style in 
which dramatic realism is 
irrelevant attention is focused 
overwhelmingly on the writ- 
ing. And, with a stronger and 
happier cast of singers and the 
concentration of Sadler's 
Wells' smaller space, such 
close attention is now ade- 
quately repaid. 

I cannot go into the plot 
again: it is one of those whose 
relationships work out best 
drawn with a pattern of arrows 
on a blackboard. Suffice it to 
say that Agilea (the nice one) 
is now sufficiently under the 
skin of Marilyn Hill Smith for 
the rapture to be released in 
her Act IV duet of temporary 
reprieve with her beloved 
Teseo (Helen Walker). Penel- 
ope Walker, who was quite the 
best part of the evening last 
lime round, has honed her 
dark, alto Arcane (the youth in 


the sub-plot) to duet most 
mellifluously with the 
orchestra's woodwind solo- 
ists. Her Act III arias, two in 
quick, succession, are per- 
formed with a continuity of 
vocal and physical ornament 
which is sheer delight. 

What really vindicates the 
production's musical and dra- 
matic credibility, though, are 
the performances of the new 
Medea and Egeo. Both Oaire 
Primrose and Michael Chance 
grasp Handel's writing and 
pack every scrupulously-ob- 
served detail and indication of 
it with live, ever-changing 
response: she in her green- 
eyed jealousy, he in his golden 
kingship. 

Nicholas Oeobiury directs 
both pit and stage with lucid, 
entirely idiomatic and stylish 
vigour.

Stately Queen 
pays homage to 
Lady Liberty 

From Michael Binyon, on board the QE2, New York 
Harbour 


An armada of little ships 
swept before us as the stately 
Queen, draped with a 100 ft 
American flag, glided under 
the Verrazano Bridge into 
New York harbour early yes- 
terday morning to pay homage 
to the Statue of Liberty. 

With more than a thousand 
Chrysler super-salesmen on 
board, locky winners of a 
dealership competition, the 
ship symbolically recalled 
Canard's role in bringing more 
than two million immigrants to 
America since 1840. It 
brought with it a family of 

Symbolism milked 
for all its worth 

Polish immigrants, who. like 
the generations of huddled 
masses America is now hon- 
ouring, were themselves flee- 
ing political persecution in 
their native land. 

The ship hove to before the 
world's most famous statue. 
After a reading of Emma 
Lazarus's poem inscribed on 
the statue's pediment, and the 
playing of the British, French 
and* American national an- 
thems, the ship blew a long, 
deep blast and the Queen 
saluted the Lady. 

Passengers tossed a cascade 
of carnations overboard, a 
cloud of red, white and bine 
balloons floated aloft, and a 
Are boat blew jets of equally 
patriotic coloured water into 
the air. 

Symbolism was milked for 
all it was worth, and the QE2 
did very nicely. ABC television 
beamed the first live broadcast 
from a moving ship, to begin 
the foor-day extravaganza of 
media hype. 

Chrysler, for a reported fee 
of $6 million (£3.7 million) has 
chartered the QE2 for 10 days 
— and Mr Lee iacoccu, its 
ebullient chairman, who, like 
his locky dealers has more 
than fulfilled his plan in 
raising more than $260 million 
for the statue's restoration, 
will stay on board during the 
celebration. 

The Poles, paraded, photo- 
graphed and interviewed, were 
a trifle overwhelmed, bat Mr

THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 4 1986 






Ryszard Olesiak, a Solidarity 
activist, and his wife Magdale- 
na had it easier than their 
forebears — plucked from an 
Athens transit centre, spon- 
sored by the United Methodist 
Committee for Relief, brought 
in first-class style to New 
York via Southampton ami 
Bermuda, and greeted by a 
Methodist bishop on arrival. 

They suffered none of the 
trembling on certainty their 
ancestors knew as they neared 
Ellis Island, now shrouded in 
scaffolding as it undergoes re- 
birth as a memorial to 
America's ethnic heritage. 

Ryszard and Magdalen 
stuttered a few well-rehearsed 
lines about being “very 
happy* 1 . After such an intro- 
duction, the American dream 
will seem rather flat for them 
in York, Pennsylvania, where 
they are to settle. 

The flotilla of boats grew 
ever larger as the Queen 
slowely cruised round the har- 
bour, past the stadium of 
Governor's Island, where 
President Reagan, at the touch 
of a laser was to light Liberty’s 
torch later in the day. 

Playing safe with 
the torch-lighting 

More and more boats — 
barks, sloops, barges, 
launches, junks, cruisers for 
the opulent, and tall ships with 
their immaculate sailors and 
billowing sails, filled np the 
faarbonr, thousands upon 
thousands. 

On land, die tourists gath- 
ered. Manhattan was jammed 
with sightseers from all Amer- 
ica and beyond — including an 
unusually large number of 
French, here to bask In the 
memory of their country's gift 
and President Mitterrand's 
presence. 

Lady Liberty was every- 
where — in foam-rubber head- 
bands, plaster effigies, in shop 
windows, on T-shirts, photo- 
graphic back-drops, and of 
course ontside the Kit Kat 
Club in Times Square, though 
undoubtedly wearing more 
clothes than the hostesses 
inside.

Miners to 
meet on 
job fears 

By Ronald Faux 

Miners at the Bilston Glen 
and Monktonhall collieries 
□ear Edinburgh are to hold 
mass meetings today after 
rumours that British Coal is to 
demand another 1,000 redun- 
dancies from the Scottish Area 
work force. 

The two pits supply a large 
part of their production to the 
South of Scotland Electricity 
Board, which is reported to be 
planning a cut of more than 1 
million tonnes a year in its 
coal burn. 

The Scottish Area of British 
Coal refused to confirm or 
deny the stories yesterday. An* 
official said that after meet- 
ings between the Scottish 
NUM and coal board manage- 
ment it was agreed that no 
statements will be made. 

Scottish Labour MPs yester- 
day demanded an emergency 
debate in the Commons. 

Mr John Home Robertson, 
Labour MP for East Lothian, 
said that the cut in coal bom 
was probably the equivalent of 
the production from one col- 
liery and he criticized deci- 
sions about the future' of coal 
being made on the basis of 
artificially low oil prices.

know whether we are over the . 
hill or whether we are running 
into the worst crisis in the 
EECs history.” 

Meanwhile,- Mr Christo- 
phersen has proposed a sup- 
plementary 1986 budget of 
£1.45 billion to cope with 
extra ferm^policy spending 
and a £315 million cut in . 
Britain's contribution, an 
automatic reflection of the 
budget deal won by Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher to com- 
pensate for excessive British 
payments. 

But combined with the 
court ruling it will save Britain 
a total of£105 million in 1986, 
while other nations are forced 
to pay more. 

The supplementary budget 
may be whittled down during 
the negotiations, but fear of a 
crippling' crisis if ihey foil is 
expected to prevent any at- 
tempt to reduce the British 
rotate. 

• LONDON: Mrs Thatcher 
yesterday welcomed the rul- 
ing. She has always been 
opposed to an extentum of the 
Parliament's powers (Sheila 
Gunn writes).

A September flotation of the 
Trustee- Savings Bank ap- 
peared likely last night after 
the dismissal, by the House of 
Lords, of the challenges to the 
planned £1 billion flotation in 
the Scottish and English 
Courts. These legal challenges 
have delayed the flotation, 
which was originally planned 
for last February. 

The Lords yesterday grant- 
ed the T$B the .declaration 
which it had previously sought 
in the Hi§h Court, that the 
TSB depositors were not enti- 
tled to the assets of the TSB 
over and beyond the return of 
their deposits plus interest 
; due. 

The declaration, stipulates 
that the depositors have: “no 
present or future, actual or 
contingent, right, title or inter- 
est to or in the surplus assets 
of the Bank." 

The Lords decision should 
end the legal challenge to the 
flotation. However, the 
solictors acting for Mr James 

Japan acts 
to halt 
dollar fall 

By David Smith 
Economics Correspondent 

The Bank of Japan inter- 
vened heavily in the foreign 
exchange markets yesterday lo 
prevent a politically embar- 
rassing fall for the dollar below 
160 against the yen. 

The elections to both houses 
of the Japanese parliament 
take place on Sunday, and the 
strength of the yen, and its- 
effect on the economy, has 
become an important issue. 

Japan's intervention, in Far 
Eastern trading, did not pre- 
vent the dollar from weaken- 
ing in the London market 

It was saved from larger 1 
foils fry the early closure of the 
New York foreign exchange 
market because of the Fourth 
of July' holiday, and position 
squaring by dealers ahead of 
the US holiday weekend. 

r The- dollar, fcfl to 161.40- 
against the yen, from 163.05 at 
the previous close. 

The dollar has only once 
fallen below 160 yen in the 
post-war period, edging briefly 
below that leveldunng May. 

The expectation remains for 
a cut in the US discount rate— 
indeed there were strong mar- ~ 
\ ket rumours yesterday that 
■this had already been decided. ' 

' A fall of 89,000 in US non- 
farm payroll employment last 
month confirmed the markets' 
opinion that the economy is 
very weak and that the Federal 
Reserve Board will be re- 
quired to act by cutting the 
discount rate. 

The pound gained 90 points j 
to S 1 .5455. The sterling index 1 
was unchanged at 76~2. 


By Lawrence Lever 


Ross, the retired civil servant 
who mounted the original 
challenge in the Scottish 
Courts, and Dr John Vincent 
who brought the English ac- 
tion. indicated that an appeal 
to the European Court of 
Human Rights was not out of 
the question. 

The TSB considers that 
such an approach 7s doomed 
to failure. A TSB spokesman 
said: "Our advice is that it 
would be unsuccessful. A peti- 
tion to the European Court 
must demonstrate that some- 
thing has been expropriated 
and the Lords made it clear 
today that this is not the case 
here." 

The TSB made it clear last 
night that it would not foot the 
legal costs of any European 
challenge, as it has done to 
date, in the interests of procur- 
ing a swift resolution to the 
legal issues. 

Sir John Read, chairman of 
the TSB, made it clear yester- 
day Lhai he regarded the Lords 



Sir John Read: “end of 
the legal process** ‘ 

decision as marking "the end 
of the legal process." 

He said that the bank "will 
now discuss its immediate 
plans with the Treasury. No 
firm dates for the proposed 
notation can be given until 
this has been done".

Oppenheim claims 
control of Aitken 


By Richard Lander 


Mr Nick Oppenheim, the. 
financier, yesterday claimed 
to have won control of the 
Ailken Hume financial ser- 
vices group after his all-paper 
£80 mitljon offer received 
more than 50 per cent accep- 
tances. 

However, he met with the 
continued rejection of the bid 
by the Aitken board on the 
grounds that the company 
would.lose its valuable Ameri- 
can fund management group, 
NSR. if the takeover went 
ahead. 

Aitken has maintained that 
a successful bid by MrOppen- 
heim would lead to NSR 
changing hands and having to 
gjve up all its management 
contracts under United States 
law. 

In a statement issued after 
Mr Oppenbeim's Tran wood 
Group claimed 50.35 per cent 
acceptances. Aitken said eight 
of the nine independent NSR 
directors had said: “if 
Tran wood succeeds in its offer 
the independent advisers will 
recommend an alternative to 
NSR as adviser to all its 
mutual funds. This would 
result in Aitken Hume losing 
its principal asset". 


Mr Oppenheim has made it 
clear that the bid would not 
proceed unless NSR retained 
its investment contracts. 
However, he said last night 
that the directors had made 
their statements before 
yesterday’s acceptances decla- 
rations and that they would 
change their minds when he 
spoke to them in New York 
next week. 

He said: k T have no trouble 
in believing that we will clear 
the problems next week. Mor- 
ally we control the company," 
he said. Ailken said it had no 
objection to Tranwood speak- 
ing with the independent NSR 
directors even though they 
had expressly wished not to do 
so. 

Tranwood topped the 50 
per cent mark after an “eve- 
ning raid" on Wednesday, in 
which the stockbrokers Phil- 
lips & Drew and Prudential 
Bache bought 12.38 per cent of 
Aitken’s shares — worth £9.3 
million — on foe stock market 

The two brokers paid I65p 
each for the shares, foe same 
value placed by Tranwood’s 
IO-for-1 share swap- offer. 
Aitken shares fell back to 1 56p 
yesterday. . 


Tough SIB rules likely 


By Lawrence Lever 


Againkt foe mark, the dollar 
fell by a pfennig to DM2. 1750. 

Herr Karl Otto PoehL foe 
Bundesbank president said 
yesterday that be did not 
consider foe mark to be too 
strong against the dollar. 


An uncompromising stance 
to misleading advertisements 
appears likely to emerge from 
draft rules governing foe ad- 
vertising of investments 
which are expected from foe 
Securities and Investments 
Board at foe end of foe month. 

The rules will be issued as 
part of foe conduct of business 
package which SIB is promul- 
gating in anticipation of re- 
ceiving foe power to regulate 
investment businesses under 
foe Financial Services BiiL 

Among foe key points of foe 
SIB proposals will be foe 


requirement for businesses 
which infringe foe rules to 
publish retractions, and to 
offer investors their mtjney 
back in foe case of infringing 
off-foe-page advertisements. 

The rules, which have not 
yet been completed for publi- 
cation, appear likely to insist 
that all advertisments state to 
which self-regulating organi- 
zation the advertiser belongs. 

They should also lay down 
strict criteria for financial 
projections which show foe 
likely future performance of 
investments. 


M&S on course after slow start 


A disappointing start to foe 
year, because of unseasonable 
weather, has been offset by 
subsequent sales in foe hot 
weather. Lord Rayner, chair- 
man of Marks & Spencer, said 
at yesterday's annual meeting. 
Sales and profits are now on 
target, he added. 

The M&S board yesterday 
received a mandate from 
shareholders to make whatev- 
er political contributions it 
deemed appropriate. In foe 


past M&S has contributed 
regularly to foe Conservative 
Party through British United 
Industrialists and to foe Na- 
tional Committee for Elector- 
al Reform. 

A total of 50 million share- 
holders voted against political 
donations compared with 263 
million in favour. 

The M&S charge card- has 
attracted nearly 1-25 million 
cardholders in 1 5 months and 
is used in (0 per cent of sales. 


foe company said. It tends to 
be used for higher priced 
purchases, with foe average 
around £27. That is £2.50 
more than the average cheque 
purchase 

M&S will branch into mail 
order in home furnishings in 
foe autumn. The move will be 
in conjunction with N Brown, 
foe mail order subsidiary of 
Coats Viyella, foe textile com- 
pany which is an important 
supplierof M&S. 


a vesting day on which foe 
Bank's assets will be trans- 
ferred to a new holding com- 
pany. as a prelude to the 
flotation. 

Privately, foe TSB is hoping 
for a September flotation 
which it hopes will attract one 
million small shareholders. It 
considers that a September 
date would be sufficiently in 
advance of the privatization 
of British Gas which is sched- 
uled for the end of October. 

The legal issue over the 
ownership of foe TSB was 
sparked offby Mr James Ross, 
a retired civil servant and a 
TSB saver for more than 40 
years, .who was granted a 
declaration last October by the , 
Lord Ordinary, Lord David- 
son . that the TSB Scotland's 
assets belonged to its 
depositors. 

This was overruled in 
March, while a paralell action 
in the High Court, bought by 
foe Reverend John Vincent on 
behalf of English depositors in 
April was also unsuccessful. 

PEP boost 
for building 
societies 

By Our City Staff 

The Government is to intro- 
duce an amendment to foe 
.Building Societies Bilk which 
will allow foe societies to 
market and manage foe new 
Personal Equity Plan an- 
nounced by the Chancellor, 
Mr Nigel Lawson in this 
year's Budget. 

The announcement, by Mr 
Ian Stewart, the Economic 
Secretary to the Treasury, 
contained in a Parliamentary 
written answer yesterday, fol- 
lows hard on the heels of foe 
Government's decision to al- 
low societies to offer personal 
pension schemes, which it 
announced in May. 

“The Government believes 
that building societies have a 
potentially important role to 
play in encouraging the growth 
of wider share ownership un- 
der foe Personal Equity Plan." 
Mr Stewart said yesterday. 

Not an societies will, howev- 
er, be able to take advantage of 
the new powers to promote 
PEP and cany oat investment 
management services of the 
underlying investments. Soci- 
eties with commercial assets of 
£100 million or more will be 
: able to carry out both the 
marketing and investment 
management functions. 

They will have to do so 
through a subsidiary of the 
society, which can either be 
wholly owned or In the form of 
a joint venture with another 
investent company. 

Those with commercial as- 
sets bdow £100 million will be 
able only to market the PEP 
I plan. 

Investors in the PEP plan 
will not pay capital gains tax 
on shares within foe plan 
while income on the shares 
will accrue tax-free. 

The Building Societies Bill 
is now going through the 
Committee stage in the House 
of Lords and will become law 
in foe first half of 1987. 

The Bill introduces a wide 
range of liberalizing powers 
which will enable it to offer 
new services such as unse- 
cured loans, money transmis- 
sion services and overdaft 
facilities. 

The proposal to include 
PEP within the societies' re- 
mit, should complement pow- 
ers in the Bill enabling 
members of foe -public to boy 
and sell unit trusts and ordi- 
nary shares through societies. 

- Societies will also be able to 
act as estate agents, insurance 
brokers, and, to a limited 
extent, will be able to offer 
conveyancing services.

Markets shrug off 
gloomy portents 


The latest upset for the Government's 
privatization programme, the 
postponement of the sell-off of the 
water authorities, was announced too 
late in the day to have much impact 
on financial markets. The question of 
whether there is any life left in the 
privatization programme after gas is 
now, more than ever, a valid one. 

The Treasury maintains that the 
postponement of water will not cause 
a dent in privatization receipts, 
planned at £4.75 billion this year, and 
for each of the following two years. 
The question of pressure on the public 
sector borrowing requirement of- 
ficially does not arise. 

But, come the public spending 
battles of the autumn and the PSBR 
could re-emerge as a concern, in the 
same way that sterling M3 has caused 
furrowed brows inthe past couple of 
months. 

Yesterday, in the gill market, such 
concerns were forgotten amid the 
hopes of cheaper money. After three 
sets of bad money supply figures, it is 
argued, next Tuesday's have to be 
good. Add in the prospect, not- 
withstanding Germany’s refusal to 
join in, of lower interest rates world- 
wide, and the markets can see a very 
good chance of lower base rates before 
the month is out. 

There were gains of as much as a 
point at the long end of the market, 
building on Wednesday’s rises on the 
first day free of capital gains tax. 

The Bank of England has gone as far 
as the Treasury will allow in hoisting 
the caution signals over base rates. If 
the momentum for lower rates builds, 
it may be hard to resist. 

. Indeed, for central bankers the 
world over, summer holidays will 
come as a welcome relief from the 
relentless pressure to cut interest rates. 
Karl Otto PoehL the Bundesbank 
president, looks capable of making it 
to the beach with his interest rates still 
intact. But for Paul Volcker, die 
chairman of the US Federal Reserve 
Board, the position is not so certain. 

Another set of weak employment . 
data yesterday added to doubts about 
■ the strength of the US economy, and 
served notice on 'the Fed that another 
discount rate cut is required. The US 
bond market took heart from this, 
helping an already sunny gilt market 
along. 

The Bundesbank's promised good 
news at yesterday's press conference 
following the fortnightly council 
meeting was that monetary growth 
had come down to an annual rate of 
65 per cent, but was still above the 3.5 
to 5.5 percent target range. As a result, 
Herr Poehl saw no room for manoeu- 
vre on interest rates. 


On the day of the announcement of 
another set of sub-zero inflation 
numbers in Germany — the cost of 
living in June was 0.2 per cent down 
on a year earlier — this has the flavour 
of hair-shirt economics taken to ex- 
tremes. On the day that the French 
president, Jacques Chirac, announced 
the intention of abolishing exchange 
controls, Germany’s caution begins to 
look overdone. 

Consensus on gas 

A concensus view is emerging in the 
run up to the £5 - £6 billion 
privatisation of British Gas (which 
there is no stopping) — albeit from two 
of the stockbrokers advising the 
Government Yesterday’s weighty 
document from James Capei follows a 
similar report from Wood Mackenzie 
in late May and .makes equally 
cheering reading. 

British Gas in an efficient, well- 
managed and successful business with 
an impressive track record and should 
provide an attractive investment 
. opportunity, says the report. The BG 
board is strong and well-established 
and, unlike British Telecom, there has 
been no organisational dislocation in 
preparation for privatisation. 

James Capei, with a timing advan- 
tage on the earlier study, is able to 
evaluate last month's details on the 
pricing formula and capital structure 
of the corporation. On a pro forma 
basis, the £2.5 billion of debt will 
mean net debt to shareholders funds 
of some 30 per cent, an acceptable 
level, in comparison with other utihies 
and energy companies worldwide. 
Similarly the RPI-2 formula is 
deemed a realistic and achieveable 
target for the future: “The overall 
effect is to protect consumers where 
necessary, but also to leave British 
Gas with considerable control over its 
own destiny.” 

The fall in oil prices is expected to 
have some short term impact on the 
business but on a longer view is largely 
neutral. Fuel oil may now be compet- 
ing effectively in the industrial bulk 
heat market but British Gas's supply 
prices are linked to oil product prices 
and, with a one to two year lag, will 
follow them down. 

British Gas will offer investors their 
first exposure to the UK’s integrated 
gas industry. As a solid utility 
company, James Capei believes Brit- 
ish Gas will help fill a gap in the mar- 
ket for high quality income stocks. 
That must surely mean a yield of 
above 7 per cent The trouble for the 
Government is that British Gas is 
going to be a “people’s share”, with 
preferential allotments for customers 
and free shares for employees. And 
after British Telecom, “people 
shareholders” will inevitably be look- 
ing for a handsome capital gain as 
well.

THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 4 1986 


France to 
lift most 


currency 

controls 


Paris (AP-Dow Jones) — 
France is to lift most of its 
currency constraints shortly, 
M Jacqoes Chirac, the French 
prime minister, said yester- 
day. 

He made the announcement 
at a forum of business leaders 
bnt did not give a detailed 
picture of what measures the 
government plans to take. 

Earlier, the trade minister 
M Michel Noir alluded to an 
impending relaxation of 



M Jacques Chirac Currency 
measures on the way 

France's currency controls in a 
speech before the same fornm. 

The measures, which are 
part of a plan to promote 
French export growth, were 
expected to be announced 
later. 

Farther easing of the con- 
trols also fits into the aim of 
the economics minister, M 
Edouard Balladurs, of remov- 
ing all controls on commercial 
transactions before the end 
this year. 


Rough diamonds cut 
out highest sales 
level for six years 


By Richard Lander 


Sales of rough gem and 
industrial diamonds by the 
Central Selling Organisation 
(CSO), the cartel which mar- 
kets about SO per cent of 
diamonds sold around the 
world, surged to their highest 
level for six years in the first 
half of this year. 

Figures released yesterday 
by the CSO. an arm of the 
South African De Beers group, 
showed sales' amounted to 
$1,214 billion (£ 809.333 mil- 
lion) in the half year, a rise of 
23 per cent from the previous 
six-month period and 45 per 
cent higher than the first half 
of last year. 

Sales last exceeded this 
figure in the first half of 1980, 
when they reached $1,567 
billion. 

In rand terms, which reflect 
the profits feeding through to 
the De Beers accounts, sales 
totalled R2.710 billion 
(£71 1.286 million). 

This was only 15 per cent 
above the second half of this . 
year because of the rand’s 
slight appreciation against the 
dollar so far this year, but 62 
per cent higher than a year 
earlier. 

Yesterday’s figures provid- 
ed further proof that the 
diamond market, which suf-

fered a severe slump in the 
early 1980s when investment 
demand collapsed, is building 
further on last year’s strong 
recovery. 

This year, De Beers an- 
nounced that its huge dia- 
mond stockpile had finally 
stopped growing at about $1.9 
billion, while in April the CSO 
announced the first price rise 
in gem diamonds for three 
years. 

In a speech to the World 
Diamond Congress in Tel 
Aviv last night. De Beers 
Chairman. Mr Julian Ogilvie 
Thompson, said that trade 


stocks had at last fallen to 
suitable levels and that there 
had been a small reduction in 
the group’s own stockpile and 
borrowing levels. 

Trade stocks are now esti- 
mated to be at only a quarter 
of the level held six years ago. 

Mr Ogilvie Thompson 
said:“We believe that stocks 
in the pipeline beyond us are 
now in a much sounder rela- 
tion to retail turnover and that 
demand for rough diamonds 
from the CSO is now back in 
balance with present produc- 
tion for the first time in many 
years.” he said. 

He added: “We can there- 
fore all look forward to the 
future with confidence”. 

Increased demand, which 
had been confined to larger 
sized, higher quality stones 
last year, had. he said, spread 
across the range of sizes and 
qualities, although a De Beers 
spokesman said there was still 
strong demand for diamonds 
weighing more than two car- 
ats. 

The spokesman said retail 
sales had been strong in the 
United States, the biggest 
market, and had been helped 
elsewhere by the falling dollar 
which reduced prices in local 
currencies. 


BES funds 
will be 
able to 
advertise 


By Lawrence Lever 


The Government has derid- 
ed to amend the provisions of 
the Financial Services Bill to 
allow Business Expansion 
Scheme funds to advertise. 

. The amendment will be 
introduced at the standing 
committee stage in the House 
of Lords where the bill is 
scheduled to receive its second 
reading next Friday. 

The decision follows repre- 
sentations by promoters of 
BES funds to officials at the 
Department of Trade and 
Industry, and concern at the 
ban on BES funds expressed 
by the Treasury, which pio- 
neered the business expansion 
scheme, allowing individual 
tax relief on investments of np 
to £40,600 a year in qualifying 
unquoted companies. 

As drafted, the provisions in 
the Bill relating to collective 
investment schemes stipulate 
that only authorized unit 
trusts can advertise, a struc- 
ture which BES funds cannot 
adopt 

The Government, however, 
is planning to create a special 
regime for BES funds, allow- 
ing them to advertise while 
retaining their present 
s tr u ct u re. 

The bill will also be amend- 
ed to allow personal equity 
plans to be advertised.

Frinton, but when, some years 
later, one partner died, the 
surviving partner was left 
stranded. 


Mr Edmondson founded 
the company in September 

1982 and. quickly made a 
success of it Taxable profits 
have risen from £20,000 in 

1983 to £445.000 in 1985.

New York (AP-Dow Jones) 
— The US ecooony remains 
weak and needs the stimulus 
of lower interest rates, econo- 
mists said yesterday after the 
June unemployment figures 
were issued. 

The economists were partic- 
ularly alarmed at the non- 
farm payroll report — which 
showed a decline of 89,000 
workers, another dedine in 
manufacturing jobs and a 
decline in the manufacturing 
work week — rather than the 
civilian unemployment rate, 
which fell 0.2 percentage 
points to 7.1 per pent 
“If you get divergent mes- 
sages, you should invariably 
rely on the payroll report,” 
said Mr Charles Lieberman, 
director of financial markets 
research at Manufacturers 
Hanover Trust 
The payroll report is based 
on a survey of businesses, and 
is widely seen as more reliable 
than the jobless report which 
is generated from a survey of 
households. 

“The payroll report is a very ■ 
decisive sign that there is 
cumulative weakness growing 
in the industrial sector of the 
economy,” Mr Stephen 
Roach, senior economist at 
Morgan Stanley, said. “It is a 
source of major concern for 
those of US worried about the 
economy weakening.” 

Anaiyszs said the June pay- 
roll report regarded as the 
most important single month- 
ly economic indicator, im- 
plied a dedine in June 
industrial production and 
modest growth in personal 
income. 


More importantly, it seri- 
ously cast doubts over pros- 
pects for a recovery' in 
economic activity in the. sec- 
ond half of the year. 

The data wiir present one 
more reason for the Federal 
Open Market Committee to 
ease policy when it meets next 
week. 

• “The implication is that 
there is a need for another cut 
in the. discount rate, and 
possibly even more than one,” 
Mr Lieberman said. 

The strike by 155,000 work- 
ers at AT&T, the huge tele- 
communications group, 
depressed the payro.U report, 
the Labour Department said. . 

The department also re- 
vised down the growtlrin May 
non-form payrolls to 125,000 
from the 149,000 previously 
reported. 

In the transportation -and 
utilities sector of the -payroll 
data, where telephone workers 
are categorized. June employ- 
ment fell by 92;000. 

Jobs in thegpods-producing 
sector dedined by 105,000 
workers in June and service- 
sector job growth was 16,000. 
In* manufacturing, jobs de- 
dined by 56,000, bringing to 

160.000 the loss since die 
beginning of the year. 

Among the key parts of the 
household survey, employ- 
ment increased by 563,000 in 
June, following a gain of 

218.000 in May. 

Analysts said- the big job 
gains in the household survey 
appeared to reflea high school 
ancT college students entering 
the market and finding sum- 
mer jobs.

It could include in. the

“Profit attributable to 
shareholders at a 
record high” 

R W Rowland, Chief Executive 


It is with pleasure that I am able to present the half year figures with an increase in profit 
before tax to over £71 million and profit attributable to shareholders at a record high . 

Profit attributable to shareholders at £34.7 million is up by 20% compared with last year 
and earnings per share have risen by 28% . The second interim dividend has effectively been 
increased by 10%, as a dividend of 4.00 pence per share has been maintained on the 
increased snare capital following the 1 for 10 capitalisation issue. 

Our African companies have traded very well during the last six months. Companies 
operating in some of these areas have been affected by adverse exchange rate movements, 
and tbe result has been to reduce profit when reported in sterling. The substantia] profit 
improvement In our U.K. activities has had a beneficial effect on our results, thereby 
enabling us to report an overall increase in both profit before tax and profit attributable to 
shareholders. 

Our hotel interests in the United Kingdom have performed well, but the results of Princess 
Properties International have been affected by the decline in the U.S. dollar and a short term 
reduction in the popularity of Mexico as a holiday location following the earth tremors. The 
opening of our new casino in Queensway, London proceeded successfully, and this casino is a 
fine addition to our prestige gaming activities. 

Production at our mining operations has increased, as compared with last year. 

The acquisition of ten Scotch whisky brands, including the famous Haig brand, by our 
subsidiary, Whyte & Mackay, has further strengthened their position by making them the 
second largest distributor of Scotch whisky in the United Kingdom. 

The Group's printing and publishing operations have reported a marked increase in 
profitability, which is a very pleasing result in these highly competitive markets. 

I am confident that the Group's pattern of consistent growth will be maintained during the 
rest of 1986.

Breakthrough on standard tariffs 


By Derek Harris 

A standard tariff* of charges for small 
businesses is to be introduced at Lloyds 
Bank branches today, the first time this 
has been done by one of the big clearing 
banks. 

There has long been critcism from the 
small business sector of the way alll bank 
charges are made. Until now they have 
tended to be struck individually, banks 
having varying guidelines for different 
services. The new Lloyds system is 
intended to answer such criticisms by 
enabling customers to calculate in ad- 
vance what their charges are likely to be. 

The standard charges will not apply to 
everybody because some company deal- 
ings have unusual features. Lloyds says 


Rich pickings 
from porkers 

By Robert Temple 

Meat that tasted as meat used to in the 
lSth-centnry can be savoured as a result 
of Anne Petch's Heal Farm Quality 
Traditional Meats. In November, 1981, 
Anne and her husband Richard sold SO 
acres of their 80-acre farm at Umbedeigh 
in north-west Devon, along with all their 
sheep and cattle, to pay off their farm 
mortgage. 

Then, dear of old debts, they set op a 
partnership and approached the local 
bank for an overdraft and raised £60,000 
to start a new venture. 

They were convinced that the public 
would be interested in paying slightly 
more for meat that “tasted like it used to" 
— entirely free from additives. They 
stocked only rare breeds of traditional 
pigs, such as Berkshire, Tamworth, 
Gloucestershire Old Spot, Middle 
White, and Large Black. 

Some of these pigs are squat have 
almost no snouts at ail and are covered 
with long hair. Most butchers will not 
deal with them “because they don't fit the 
machines, being too short". 

Today Anne and Peter have SO sows, 
eight boars and between 300 and 400 
young stock (for slaughtering). They

that branch managers will .anyway still 
have discretion to vary charges. But the 


new rates are expected by the bank to 
apply to between 80 and 90 per cent of its 
small business customers. 

Lloyds says it has pitched the new 
charges to be competitive overall with- 
out necessarily undercutting the opposi- 
tion. But it is giving guidance to small 
businesses on how charges can be kept as 
low as possible such as by using direct 
debits rather than standing orders or 
more extended use of cash-dispenser 
machines. 

The tariff is undoubtedly a .big step 
forward. A small business should obvi- 
ously still shop around because depend-

instead of the average 2.25 litters of

buildings, apart from the slangfatering, 
which is carried out by a local abattofr. 
The rare breeds are traditional outdoor

cost system of grass grazing ami natural,

■ Small specialist wine merchants 
have been facing daunting competition, 
especially from the big supermarket 
chains, which now account for much of 
the sales of mass-appeal wines at £2 
a bottle and less. It has meant woefully 
squeezed profit margins for the small 
wine merchant, creating a need for 
financial management skills which ail 
too few merchants possess. To help the 
specialist merchant cope, the Wine 
and Spirit Association Is encouraging a 
series of seminars around the country 
hinged on financial management 

Nick Gent the association's chairman, 
said: "The problem is that while these 
merchants do know their wine and can 
offer a good service in consequence, they 
all too often do not know about cash 
flow." A feature of the seminars will be 
individual examinations of audited' ~ • 

accounts to help diagnosis of problems.

one bank might offer the best deal for a 
particular service. Lfoyds for instance 
will charge 50p for manual entries over 
the counter but only 20p for electronic 
transactions. 

Lloyds is also setting up other new 
services for small businesses. One is an 
export-debt insurance scheme for those 
without an Exports Guarantee Depart- 
ment policy. Another is what will be 
known as a telepay system, which by a

but Anne says the value is better because 
the consumer gets more meat. Her 
products all lack water-retainers, stabi- 
lizers, soya slurry extenders and other 
common additives. 

Anne puts the least amount of saltpetre 
in her bacon or any producer in Europe,

Turnover for November 1981 to 
A prill 982 was only £3,000. But from 
such tiny beginnings she had a turnover 
of £150,000 in 1985 and expects 
£200,000 this year. The business became 
profitable at the beginning of 1985, and 
most of it has been ploughed back into 
expansion. 

Turnover grows at about 30 per cent a 
year steadily. There has been no outside 
finance and the ownership and directors 
are simply Anne and Peter. Anne runs 
the form and her husband does most of 
the deliveries. 

But Anne and Peter have no intention 
of taking on other people. Anne says: 
“The Germans have a phrase ‘learning 
with your own money 1 rather than with 
somebody else’s. It's a much better 
lesson. 1 *

Industrial Editor 

Mr Bill Marriott, son of the 
founder of the Marriott hotel 
chain and now chairman and 
chief executive of Marriott 
Corporation based in Wash- 
ington DC, has left London 
with firm plans for expansion 
in Britain and on the Conti- 
nent. 

Bui although he held a 
senes of business meetings, 
there was n o contact with Mr 
Stanley Grinstead, chairman 
of Grand Metropolitan, which 
owns-the Intercontinental, ho- 
tel chain. 

It has been rumoured that 
Marriott, hungry for a wider 
presence in Europe, has been 
interested in buying die Inter- 
continental chain with its 
European strength, particular- 
ly in London and West 
Germany. 

Mr Grinstead has been talk- 
ing to Mr Alan Bond, chair- 
man of the Australian Bond 
Corporation, amid takeover 
speculation. 

Marriott- gained a foothold 
in London by buying from 
Grand Metropolitan what was 
then the Europa Hotel, just off 
Grosvenor Square, and now 
refurbished as the London 
Marriott. 

But Mr Marriott said: “We 
made no bid for Interconti- 
nental. simply because the 
price at £1 billion is too high. 
By our reckoning, they paid 
too much for it in the first 
place. We keep in touch from 
time to time but just to see if 
there is something they would 
like to selL” 

Marriott also wanted the 
Britannia Hotel in Grosvenor 
Square but no deal .could be 
struck with Grand Metropoli- 
tan.

Showerings sees 
big response to 
£10m cider drive 


By Our Industrial Editor 
Britain's third biggest cider 
producer, the Somerset-based 
Showerings, which is part of 
. Allied-Lyons, is doubling pro- 
motion spending to £10 mil- 
lion while launching a new 
. range of ciders, including up- 
- market brands from Germa- 
ny. France and /Spain — and 

■ what is claimed to be the first 
! cask-conditioned cider. 

The Campaign for Real Ale 
(Camraj is expected to“grve 
; the cask cider its blessing. 

The move comes as the 
qder market; worth £37 mfl- 
liona-year in sales, is showing 
signs of' recovering from a 
combination , of increases in 
i taxation and poor summer 

■ weather which left sales static 
09 1984 and down by 3.6 per 
‘cent last year. 

Before that sales had been 
rising, at between 10 and 20 
per cent a year m a period 
when HrP Buhner, the market 
leader, was the biggest promo- 
tional spender. 

Cider sales doubled to not 
for short of 70 million gallons 
a year in the 10 years to 1 985. 

’ First-quarter sales this year 
were steady, and in the past 
two wrecks of better weather 
.demand has soared. 

. Mr Lyn Hughes, marketing 
manager at Showerings, said: 
“There is now an underlying 
positive trend in cider sales." 
He believes that the big jump 
jn Showerings’ promotional 
spending will also .have its 
impact, just as that of 
Bulmer's did in the past, and 
there are now expectations 
that die .market leader will 
step up its own promotional 

- A ',•_, j 

In 1984 the industry Ucked 
. its wounds, cutting back on 
promotional spending, after 
the Chancellor reduced the 
taxation advantage for cider 
by increasing duties by 47 per 
cent to nearer the level im- 
posed oh beer. . 

Beer sales are still 25 times 
those of cider, and the cider- 
makers argue that what tax 
advantage remains is can- 
celled out- by handling costs 
with such a comparatively low 
volume- product. Cider and 
beer prices are not dissimilar 

4! the retail level. . e 
Because only '36 per cent of 
adults are cider drinkers there 
is an opportunity of persuad- 
ing r?kore to aquire the taste, 
given the right marketing 
approach, according to Mr 

^One way is to break out 
from the traditional rustic 
image surrounding foe drink.

Lyn Hughes: “Positive 
trend re sales" 
youth market with an image 
which Mr Hughes describes as 
“modern, of the disco and foe 
bright lights." 

Copperhead, claimed to be 
the first new draught cider in 
25 years, is now being test- 
marketed. with £5 million 
being spent on promotion 
including television advertis- 
ing. Sales are running well 
ahead of expectations and, 
crucially, it is attracting new- 
comers to cider. About 40 per 
cent of Copperhead drinkers 
had hot drunk cider -in the 
previous 12 months. 

The cask-conditioned cider 
is Addlestone’s, so far avail- 
able in Allied pubs in the 
north-west. Midlands and foe 
south-west, but due to be 
distributed nationally once 
the sales formula is proved It 
will be on .offer in traditional- 
style pubs to appeal to foe 
drinkers who favour real ale. 

The latest introduction of 
continental ciders, some spar- 
kling varieties, is aimed at 
persuading more people to 
drink cider with meals. These 
sell at about £1.30 a bottle. A 
new special farmhouse brand 
is being introduced, free of 
artificial sweeteners, colours 
and flavours, which is intend- 
ed to appeal to foe health 
conscious. 

A vaJue-for-money range 
under the Festival Vat Jabel 
will sell at about 75p a Jibe, 
competing with foe own-label 
brands of foe big supermaiket 
chains. 

Within 18 . months 
Showerings should increase its 
market share in cider from is 
ner cent to more than 20 per 
cent. Mr Hughes forecasts. 

The company is also spend- 
ing £4 million this year on 
promoting its Gaymer s Olde 
English, which in foe off- 
licence trade is the second 
biggest seller - next to 
Buhner's Strongbow. Tire take 
home trade accounts for 45 

per cent of cider ales. 

Bulmer has about 49 per 
cent of sales m the cider 
market with foe second largest 
slice 0 f28 per cent accounted 
for by Taunton Cider, which 

belongs to foe brewer consor- 
tium of Bass, Imperial 
Group’s Courage and Scottish 
and Newcastle Brewnes. Af- 
ter Showerings. m third place, 
other producers are compara- 

UV Sf with its flecks of 
-mule, has been left to regional 
makers, including the farmers. 
Krinre tried bottling it at 
SSSSul selling onlyon 
jis curiosity value mostly 
'round Christmas, the vol- 
umes were too small to justify 
carrying on. 



Bill Marriott: Grand Metropolitan's Intercontinental hotels too expensive at £1 billion 


probably the best fit in Europe 
for Marriott which has hotels 
in Amsterdam, ftaris, Vienna 
and Athens, with another 
under construction in Ham- 
burg. There are half a dozen in 
foe Middle East, including foe 
Cairo Marriott. 

There is no prospect of any 
deals with Trusthouse Forte, 
Britain's biggest hotel opera- 
tor, Mr Marriott said. 

That leaves Marriott look- 
ing at seven to eight hotel 
prospects in Europe, including 
Britain. “Within the year we 
hope to announce two to three 
additional hotels in Europe," 
Mr Marriott said 

Marriott, which has 140 
hotels m North America, is 
looking eventually to have at 
least two central London loca- 
tions plus properties at 
Gatwick and Heathrow air- 
ports, with a Heathrow hotel 


linked to the conference mar- 
ket. 

Marriott also has in its 
sights key regional cities in 
Britain. Some could see an 
adaptation of what Marriott in 
foe United States calls court- 
yard hotels where low-rise 
quality accommodation is 
built round a central area, 
often with a swimming pool, 
which in Britain would be 
covered. By paring services to 
a minimum, room rates are 
kept down. 

Such properties need sever- 
al acres for development and 
would be sited at foe edge of 
cities and towns. The concept 
might be used at Gatwick. 

. The Marriott drive in Eu- 
rope is for hotels primarily 
catering for the business trav- 
eller but with some tourist 
potential, Mr Marriott said. In 
buying existing hotels or de- 


veloping new properties, Mar- 
riott will follow foe usual 
route of foe big hotel chains 
and set up a financing consor- 
tium for each project, al- 
though Mr Marriott said the 
corporation was now in a 
position to take an equity 
stake of up to half. 

It is foe American-based 
international chains which 
have been particularly hit by 
the wave of American cancel- 
lations of European holidays 
because of the terrorism 
scares, he admitted. He puts 
bookings in Britain at 30 per 
cent down. The situation was 
worse in France and further 
east in Europe, where book- 
ings were down by up to 40 per 
cent and up to 70 per cent 
respectively. He said: "It has 
not affected business traffic 
and there are signs of foe 
tourists coming back." 


Industrial 
production 
falls 2% 

Bran (AP-Dow Jones) — 
Seasonally adjusted industrial 
production in West Germany 
declined about 2 per cent in 
May from April, while the 
seasonally and price-adjHsted 
order inflow to the manufac- 
tnring industry contracted 
about 1 per cent, the econom- 
ics ministry reported 

The preliminary May pro- 
duction index stood at 104.2, 
(1980=100), down from an 

April index that was sharply 
revised upward to 10&2 from 
an initially reported 1038. 

The preliminary Ma y orde r 
?nrfw for the manirfarturing 
industry was established at a 

seasonally and price-ad jnsted 

109 (1980=100), down from an 
April index of 119- 

The ministry noted that 
production b y the West Ger- 
man pmhc tBn^ 
declined about 15 per cent in 
May from April while output 
of energy and gas fell 8 per 
cent 

Within the mannfttHmiug 
sector, output of the key West 
German capital goods indnstry 
dpHingd about 3-5 per cent 
white output of consumer 
goods rose 1 per cent. 

A 6.5 per cent foil of foreign 
orders in May, compared with 
April, was decisive for the 1 
per cent decline fn orders to 
the manufacturing industry 
daring the month, while do- 
mestic orders expanded about 
2 per cent, the ministry said. 

According to officials, the 
upward revision in the April 
prod action index meant that 
the total output of the West 
German industry rose about 
3S per cent in April from 
March, instead of the 1.5 per 
cent tire ministry reported on 
the bams of pretintinary re- 
sults ou June 3. 


German economy 
must be watched, 
says bank chief 


Frankfurt (AP-Dow 
Jones)— Herr Karl Otto Poehl, 
president of the Bundesbank, 
said yesterday that West Ger- 
man central bank money sup- 
ply growth had slowed to a 6.5 
per cent annual rate recently, 
and that there was no reason 
to alter foe money supply's 
target corridor. 

He told a press conference 
after a meeting of foe 
Bundesbank's policy-setting 
central bank council that foe 
good news a! which he had 
recently hinted was that foe 
expansion of the money sup- 
ply was not as strong as in 
April, but now lay just over 
the upper boundary of 5.5 per 

cent. 

Hen- Poehl indicated that 
the money supply would be 
likely to re-enter foe target 
comdor of between 3.5 per 
cent and 5.5 per cent by the 
end of foe year. 

The central bank money 
supply consists of cash in 
circulation and banks' mini- 
mum reserves requirements 
on domestic liabilities. It is the 
Bundesbank's primary tool for 
measuring foe expansion or 
contraction of the money 
supply. 

According to the 
Bundesbank's most recent 
monthly statistics, foe prelim- 
inary seasonally-adjusted cen- 
tral bank money supply rose 
to DM2103 billion in May 
from DM210.0 billion in 
April. 

■ In the six months ending on 
May 31 the central bank 
money supply expanded at an 
annual rate of 6.7 per cent, 
down from a rate of 73 per 


cent in April, according to 
Bundesbank statistics. 

Herr Poehl said that the 
strength of the mark and foe 
weakness of the dollar meant 
that foe West German econo- 
my had to be “carefully 
watched." 

Although he declined to 
comment on whether foe 
mail had grown too strong or 
foe dollar too weak, he ac- 
knowledged that the shift in 
foe dollar-mark exchange rate 
could have a significant effect 
on West Germany's economy. 

Herr Poehl has said repeat- 
edly in recent weeks foat foe 
decline in foe dollar since foe 
September 22 meeting of foe 
Group of Five major industri- 
al nations in New York bad 
been a “soft landing" for foe 
US currency, which was se- 
verely overvalued against oth- 
er major currencies. 

But the highly export-ori- 
ented West German economy 
also reaped considerable bene- 
fits from foe high value of foe 
dollar, and there is concern 
among West Germany’s econ- 
omists that foe lower dollar 
will erode export sales. 

The latest trade data 
showed that West Germany s 
May trade surplus narrowed 
to DM8.061 billion from a 
record DM10.049 billion sur- 
plus in April. 

The May trade surplus wid- 
ened from foe DM7.522 bil- 
lion surplus registered in May, 
1985. 

The nation's current ac- 
count surplus registered a 
preliminary DM6 billion in 
May, down from a revised 
record surplus of DM83 bil- 
lion in April.

FOREIGN EXCHANGES 


New York (Renter) — "Wall 
Street shares slumped after 
opening stranger yesterday as 
a ware of fninres-related pro- 
grammes pot pressure on the 
market, traders said. 

The credits markets opened 
higher, lending background 
support. But expectation of a 
pullback kept buyers on the 
sidelines. 

The Dow Jones industrial 
average slid to 1900.45, after 
advancing to 1911 initially. 

Declining issues led advanc- 


ing issues by a margin of two 
to one, on a volume of 26 
million shares. 

Unexpectedly weak employ- 
ment figures raised hopes in 
some quarters for a discount 
rate cut, but unnerved inves- 
tors betting' on a second-half 
rise in corporate earnings. 

The transportation average 
was down 435 points at

stocks had shed 330 points to

(Opinion given June 2. 1986) 
(Judgment given July 31 

In the absence of an agree- 
ment between the Council and 
the Parliament concerning a 
maximum rate of increase in the 
budget of the European 
Communities for 1986, the 
President of the Parliament 
could not lawfully declare that 
the budget had been finally 
adopted and the budget purport- 
edly adopted by that declaration 
was therefore invalid, 
y .» f»al Background 

The procedure for the adop- 
tion of the general budget of the 
European Communities was 
governed by article 203 of the 
EEC Treaty. Paragraph 9 of that 
article provided, in the case of 
what was known as non-com- 
pulsory expenditure (NCE), that 
a maximum rate of increase in 
relation to the expenditure of 
the same type to be incurred 
during the current year was to be 
fixed annually by the Commis- 
sion on the basis of three 
objective factors. 

However, such NCE might 
exceed that which resulted from 
the application of the maximum 
rate calculated by the Commis- 
sion in two cases, namely: 

1 If the increase in NCE 
resulting from the draft budget 
established by tbe Council was 
over half the maximum rate 
declared by the Commission, 
the Parliament might further 
increase the total amount of that 
expenditure to a Emit not 
exceeding half the maximum 
rate. 

2 If the activities of the 
Community required that tbe 
maximum rate should be ex- 
ceeded. another rate might be 
fixed by agreement between tbe 
Council and the Parliament 


of payment appropriations: that 
proposal was made subject to 
acceptance by the Parliament. 

The outcome oF the 
Parliament's deliberations of 12 
December 1985. w ign addi- 
tion^ increase in NCE of 402 
million ECU (19.5 per cent) in 
respect of commitment 
appropriations and 563. million 
ECU (29.7 percent) in respect of 
payment appropriations. 
Following the votes or the 
Pari lament, the President of the 
Council made it known that the 
Council’s compromise proposal 
was accordingly withdrawn. 

On December 18, 1985 the 
President of the Parliament 
declared, pursuant to article 
203(7) of the Treaty, that the 
budgetary procedure for the 
financial year 1986 was com- 
peted and that the general 


application were also rejected. 
Substance 

It was possible to make three 
findings of feet in regard to the 
way in which die provisi ons o n 
the maximum rate of increase 
had been applied: 

1 The Commission, the Council 

and the Parliament had all 
concurred in tbe view that tbe 
maximum rate of increase as 
fixed by the Commission was 
not adequate to enable the 
Community to function prop- 
erly during the financial year 
1986. , „ 

2 The Council and the Par- 
liament had been unable to 
agree on a new maximum rate of 
increase although the positions 
which those two institutions 
finally adopted were quite close 
to each other. 

3 The appropriations adopted • 


pletea ana mat uk j me awinvu 

budget had been finally adopted- by the Parliament at the second 
He then officially informed the reading and ratified by the 
Council of the final adoption of 


the budget by a letter dated 
December 19, 1985. 

Subsequent Events 

Following the act of the 
President of the European Par- 
liament of December 18. 1985, a 
series of actions for annulment 
was brought against the general 
budget for 1986 and/or against 
the declaration of the final 
adoption of that budget. Those 


reading 

budget as adopted on December 
1 8. 1 985 by the President of the 
Pari iament had accepted by 
implication the figures on the 
maximum rate established by 
the Council 

The finding under 2 was 
disputed by the Council which 
argued that, in exceeding the 


budgetary authority kept within 
the limits of their powers, it 
might not intervene -in the 
process of negotiation between 
the Council and the Parliament 
which was to result, with die 
regard for those limits, in the 
establishment of the genera] 
budget of the Communities. 

It was therefore; necessary to ' 
reject the Council's principal 
claim for a partial annulment of 
the budget, the effect of which 
would be to bring into force the 
version of that document result- 
ing from the proposals made by 
the Council to the Parliament 
on November 29, 1985. . 

It had next to be remarked 
that the irregularity attaching to 
the act of the President of the 
Parliament of December 18, 
1985 was to be traced to the. feet 
that the two institutions had not 
reached agreement , on the fig- 
ures concerning the new maxi- 
mum rate of increase.- - . - 

Looking back on. the situation 
as it presented itself at the time 
of the second reading of the 
budget by the Parliament, the 
Court was left with the im- 
pression that the .respective 
positions adopted by . the two 
institutions could hardly have 


increases proposed at the second ' constituted a serious obstacle to 
reading by the Council,, the the possibility of arriving at an 


Parliament had accepted by 


actions were brought by Luxem- implication tbe figures on tbe 
iethertands, France, maximum rale established by 


bourg, the Nethe 
the Federal Republic of Ger- 
many, the United Kingdom and 
the Council. 

The United Kingdom also 
applied to the Court for an 
interim order, pending lfinal 
judgment in its main action, 
that member states should make 
payments in respect of VAT 
own resources for the 1986 
budget limited to such amounts 
as resulted from the Council's 
second reading of the budget on 
November 26 and 27, 1985. 


By order of March 17. 1986, 
the Presk 


The 1986 Budget Procedure 

In April 1985 the Commis- 
sion informed the Council that 
the maximum-rate of increase in 
respect of NCE for the 1986 
budget was 7.1 per cent in 
relation to expenditure of the 
same type in the 1985 budget 

On July 31, 1985 it submitted 
to the Council the preliminary 
draft budget for 1986, indicating 
that the draft was based on two 
events the effects of which 
would begin to be felt as from 
January 1. 1986. namely the 
new own resources at the maxi- 
mum VAT call-in rate of 1.4 per 
cent and the enlargement of the 
Community to include Spain 
and Portugal. 

At its meeting on September 
17 and 18, 1985 the Council 
established a draft budget which 
provided for an increase of 578 
million ECU (7.05 per cent) in 
respect of commitment 
appropriations and 430 million 
ECU (7.04 per cent), in respect 
of payment appropriations. 

In its first rrading of the draft 
budget on November 14. 1985, 
the Parliament made a series of 
amendments to it which to- 
gether provided for increases in 
NCE of 1,764 million ECU in 
respect of commitment 
appropriations and 1,784 mil- 
lion ECU in respect of payment 
appropriations. 

At the Council's second read- 
ing of the budget on November 
26 and 27, 1985, it was decided 
to increase NCE by 1,199 mil- 
lion ECU in respect of commit- 
ment appropriations and 1,251 
million ECU in respect of 
payment appropriations. On 
that occasion, the Council en- 
tered supplementary appropri- 
ations. in respect of the 
enlargement of the Community, 
in tbe draft budget established at 
the first reading. 

Following that unconditional 
proposal the Council, by a letter 
of November 29, proposed to 
the Parliament that new maxi- 
mum rates of increase should be 
fixed at 14.6 per cent in respect 
of commitment appropriations 
and 20.5 per cent in respect of 
payment appropriations. 


iident of the Court, by 
way of an interim decision 
ordered, inter alia, as follows: 

"The Commission shall im- 
plement. until July 10. 1986 or 
until the date on which the 
Court delivers its judgment in 
Case 34/86, Council v European 
Parliament . whichever date 
shall be the earlier, tbe budget 
for the financial year 1986. as 
regards both payment appropri- 
ations and commitment 
appropriations, on the basis of 
the draft budget established by 
the Council at its second reading 
on November 27, 1985, subject 
to those amendments decided 
by the Parliament on December 
12, 1985 which do not have the 
effect of increasing non-com- 
pulsory expenditure . . .**. 

[n the present case, which had 
been brought pursuant to article 
173 of tbe EEC Treaty the 
Council applied for partial 
annulment of the budget in so 
far as, following the delibera- 
tions of the Parliament on 
December 12, 1985, certain 
appropriations had been in- 
creased in breach of the Treaty. 

In the alternative it sought the 
annulment of the budget as a 
whole and. as a consequence, 
the annulment of the act of the 
President of the Parliament 
declaring the final adoption of 
the budget and in the latter case 
it requested the Court to state 
which of the effects of the budget 
were to be considered as 
definitive. 

In its judgment the Court of 
Justice of the European 
Communities held as follows: 
Admissibility 

The Parliament denied in the 
first place that the Council 
might rely on article 173 of tbe 
EEC Treaty for the purposes of 
seeking the annulment of the 
budget as an act of tbe European 
Pariiament- 

It had to be pointed out that 
the Court had already held in its 
judgment in Case 294/83, Parti 
Ecologists "Lcs Verts” v Euro- 
pean Parliament which were 
intended to have legal effects 
vis-a-vis third parties. 

The general budget of the 
Communities was the in- 
strument which set out forecasts 
of, and authorized in advance, 
the revenue and expenditure for 


the Council 

It had to be stated in that 
respect that although the Treaty 
provided that the maximum 
rate was to be fixed by the 
Commission on tbe basis of 
objective factors, no criterion 
had been laid down for the 
modification of that rate. 

According to the fifth sub- 
paragraph of article 203(9). it. 
was sufficient that the Council 
and the Parliament came to an 
agreement 

In view of the importance of 
such an agreement which con- 
ferred on the two institutions, 
acting in concert the freedom to 
increase the appropriation in 
respect of the NCE in excess of 
the rate declared by the 
Commission, that agreement 
might not be inferred on the 
basis of the presumed intention 
of one or other of those 
institutions. 

The finding under 3 above 
was disputed by the Parliament 
which maintained that NCE for 
the financial year 1986 relating 
to the enlargement and the 
of the “< 


absorption 


‘cost of the 


past” had no equivalent in the 
fin an 


inancial year 1985. That expen- 
diture could not therefore be 
covered 1^ the procedure laid 
down by article 203(9). 

That argument could not be 
accepted. 

The expression "expenditure 
of the same type” in article 
203(9) could wily refer- to the 
expenditure mentioned later in 
the same sentence, namely 
NCE It followed that the Treaty 


agreement. 

Hie Court did not have to 
consider the extent to which the' 
Council's or tbe Parliament's 
attitude during the negotiations 
on the budget bad prevented 
them from arriving at an agree- 
ment. 

It had to confine itself to 
holding that since that essential 
agieement was lacking,^ the 
President of the Parliament 
could not lawfully declare that 
the budget" had' been 'finally- 
adopted. Thai -declaration had 
therefore to be annulled thus 
depriving the 1986 budget of its 
validity. 

It was for the Council and the 
Parliament to take the measures 
necessary to comply with this 
judgment and to resume the 
budgetary- procedure at the 
point at which the Parliament, 
at its second reading, had in- 
creased its appropriations in 
respect of NCE beyond the 
maximum rate of increase fixed 
by the Commission and without 
having to come to an agreement 
with the Council on the figure 
for a new rate. 

The declaration that the 1986 
budget was illegal came ata time 
wben a substantial part of the 
financial year 1986 had already 
elapsed. 

In those circumstances, the 
need to guarantee the continuity 
of the European public service 
and also important reasons for 
legal certainty, which were to be 
compared with those which 
applied in the case of the 
annulment - of Certain ' regula- 
tions. justified the Court in 
exercising the power expressly 
conferred upon it by the second 


did not recognize the existence .paragraph of article 174 of the 


of NCE whose increase fell 
outside the scope of the maxi- 
mum rate of increase. 

In its defence the Parliament 
further charged the Council with 
having acted illegally in submit- 
ting an incomplete draft budget, 
particularly in as much as ft did 
not include the appropriations 
necessary in order to cover the 
enlargement and the absorption 
of the "cost of the past” 

Whatever the impact of that 
argument might be on the 
exceeding of the maximum rate 
of increase by the amendments 
adopted by the Parliament, it 
was sufficient to state on that 
point that the determination of 
the exigencies posed, for the 
budget, of the Communities, by 
special situations such as the 
accession of new member states 
or the absorption of the “cost of 
the past” was not a matter for 
the Court but for the Council 
and the Parliament acting in 
concen. 

It had therefore to be held that 
the act of the President of the 
Parliament of December 18, 
1985 whereby he declared the 
budget for 1986 finally adopted, 
occurred at a lime when the 
budgetary procedure had not yet 


EEC Treaty. 

In the particular circum- 
stances of this case it had to be 
held that the annulment of the 
act of the president of the 
Parliament might not call in 
question the validity of the 
payment made and the commit- 
ments entered into in im- 
plementation of the 1986 budget 
up to the daw of this judgment 

On those grounds, the Euro- 
pean Court; 

1 Declared void the act of the 
President of the European Par- 
liament of December 18, 1985 
whereby he declared that the 
budget tor. 1986 had been finely 
adopted. 

2 Declared that tbe annulment 
of the aforesaid act of the 
President of the European Par- 
liament might not call in ques- 
tion the validity of the payments 
made and the commitments 
entered into in implementation 
of the budget for 1986 as 
published in the Official Jour- 
nal. before the date of delivery 
of this judgment 

3 Dismissed the remainder of 
the application. 

4 Ordered the parties, including 
the interveners, to bear their 
own costs. 


Interpretation according to wishes of parties 


Anterist v Credit Lyonnais 
Case 22/85 

Before Judge U. Everting (Presi- 
dent of the Fifth Chamber) and 
judges R. Joliet O. Due, Y. 
Galmot and C. N. Kakouris 
Advocate General M. Darmon 
(Opinion delivered February 4. 
1986) 

[Judgment delivered June 24] 
The third paragraph of article 
17 of the Brussels Convention 
was to be interpreted in such a 
way as to give effect to the 
dearly expressed wishes of the 
parties to an agreement confer- 
ring jurisdiction on the courts of 
contracting state. 

The respondent, a French 
bank, was a creditor of the 
undertaking Anterist & 
Schneider, whose registered of- 
fice was in France. 

The appellant had acted, with 
others, as guarantor of the firm's 
Liabilities vis-3-vis tbe bank. 
On May 16. 1967 in Forbach. 
France he had signal a guar- 
antee form used by the bank 
which included the following 
sentence: 

“The court within whose 
jurisdiction [the relevant branch 
of the bankj is situated shall 
have exclusive jurisdiction to 
adjudicate upon all matters 
concerninng the performance of 
this agreemcnL irrespective of 
who is the defendanL” 

Asa result of the firm’s failure 
pay its debt on the due date, 
the bank brought an action 
against the guarantors before the 
Landgericht (Regional Court). 
Saarbnicken. Germany. 

Mr Anterist challenged the 
jurisdiction of that court on the 
ground that the agreement 
conferring jurisdiction, con- 
tained in the guarantee contract, 
provided that the court at 
Sarreguemines. France, was to 
have exclusive jurisdiction. 

The Landgericht accepted 


that argument However, on an 
appeal by the bank, the 
Oberiandesgerichi (Higher Re- 
gional Court), held that the 
clause was to be regarded as 
having been concluded for the 
benefit of Credit Lyonnais 
alone, within the meaning of the 
third paragraph of article 17 of 
the Brussels Convention on 
jurisdiction and the enforce- 
ment of judgments in civil and 
commercial matters. 

It therefore referred the case 
back to the LandesgcrichL How- 
ever Mr Anterist appealed to the 
Bundcscerichrshor (Federal 
Court or Justice) which referred 
the matter to the Court of 
Justice of the European 
Communities for a preliminary 
ruling. 


diction on the court or courts 
mentioned in the clause, while 


the third paragraph preserved 
foi 


jurisdiction than the other, were 
to be regarded as clauses whose 


the right of the party for whose 
benefit 


In us judgment the European 
if Justice h * ‘ 


Court of Justice held as follows: 

Article 1 7 of the Convention 
enabled the parties to choose, by 
agreement, the court or courts of 
a contracting $me which were to 
have jurisdiction to settle any 
disputes between them. 

The first paragraph of that 
article conferred exclusive juris- 


the clause had been 
included to bring proceedings 
before any other court which 
had jurisdiction by virtue of the 
Convention. 

Since article 17 of the 
Convention embodied the prin- 
ciple of the panics' freedom of 
choice, the third paragraph was 
to be interpreted in such a way 
as to give effect to the joint 
intention of the parties on the 
conclusion of the contract. 

That joint intention had 
therefore to appear dearly from 
the terms of the clause itself, 
from other indications in the 
contract viewed as a whole or 
from the circumstances i n which 
the contract was concluded. 

Clauses which indicated ex- 
pressly the party for whose 
benefit they had been con- 
cluded. and clauses which, while 
specifying the courts before 
which each party might bring 
proceedings against the other, 
gave one party a wider choice of 


terms showed that they had 
he benefit 


been concluded for the , 
of only one of the parties. 

The designation of the court 
of a contracting state in which 
one of the parties was domiciled 
did not suffice in itself, given the 
multiplidty of reasons which 
might have led to the adoption 
of such a clause, to lead to the 
conclusion that the joint inten- 
tion of the parties was to confer 
an advantage upon that party. 

On those grounds, die Euro- 
pean Court (Fifth Chamber), 
ruled: 


. An agreement conferring 
jurisdiction was not to be re- 
garded as having been con- 
cluded for the benefit of only 
one of the parties, within the 
meanjng of the third paragraph 
or article 1 7 of the Convention, 
when « was established only 
that the parties had agreed that 
jurisdiction was to be conferred 
upon the court or courts of the 
contracting state in which that 
pany was domiciled. 


Law Report July 4 1986 


Defendant need not explain 


W v Booth by 
Justins acted improperly in 
permitting the prosecution to 

cross-examine a defendant as to 

why. after being cautioned, be 
had declined to answer ques- 
tions put by police officers 
investigating the offence: the 
whole purpose of the caution 
was for the defendant to con- 
sider whether he desired to give 

an explanation or whether he 
preferred to remain silent, and 
he had. after caution, the right to 
silence. 


, The Queen's Bench Di- 
visional Court (Lord Justice 
Watkins and Mr Justice Otton) 
so held on June 23 when ft 
allowed the appeal of the defen- 
dant. W. aged 16. and quashed 
his conviction by Consett Jus- 
tices on May 29. 1985, of 
burglary, contrary to section 
9(1 1(b) of the Theft Act 1968. 
and sentence of 28 days' deten- 
tion. 

LORD JUSTICE WATKINS 
.said that where a defendant gave 
evidence that was in direct 


contrast to. that given by 
prosecution witnesses he could 
not be said to be attacking thfe, 
character of those witnesses. 

Acc ordingly, the justices un- 
reasonably exercised their dis- 
cretion to allow cross- 
exam motion of the defendant as 
10 bis previous record when be* 
bqpn an attack of the police 
°n«y after he had been'- - 
asked by the prosecution why fie 
had not oflered an explanation * 
when cautioned and had chosen 

to remain silenL -

Motoring by Clifford Webb 


Noisy solution to ‘runaway’ Volvos 


Over the past four years a 
great deal of time and money 
has been spent to try to solve 
the mystery of the so-called 
“runaway” Volvo 340 auto- 
matic cars. 

It has been investigated by 
experts from the Department 
of Transport the Motor In- 
dustry Research Association, 
the Swedish company’s spe- 
cialists and several indepen- 
dent consultants retained by 
Volvo owners who claimed 
their cars “just took off for no 
apparent reason," 

Two months ago came the 
first breakthrough when 
Volvo announced that it was 
recalling all 33,340 automatics 
sold in Britain since 1978 for 
urgent modifications to the 
gear selector mechanism. 

\rnti..n cairi - “This fnl 


was that the transmission 
control mechanism is heavy to 
operate, produces noisy pro- 
tests unless the engine 
tickover is low, and is general- 
ly rather dated judged by the 
standards of today's slick and 
noiseless systems. The Volvo 
is also imprecise in action. 

I found it was possible to 
lodge foe lever In neutral 
between positions. However it 


why so many Volvo owners 
claimed their cars shot 
forward. 

After modification I found 
that selection was only mar- 
ginally more positive. This is 
no longer a problem, however, 
because as soon as the lever is 
moved for any reason an 
alarming buzzer sounds so 
stridently that you hurriedly 
seek the refuge of foe nearest 


ment given to the Department 
of Transport as a condition of 
foe officially supervised recall. 
But dealers have been told 
they can still disconnect the 
buzzer at foe specific request 
of foe owners. 


Eureka 

Daimler Benz West Germa- 
ny, better known in foe UK as 
Mercedes, is generally 


ac- 


Maserati Biturbo 


knowledged to be the Eu rope- 
leader in advanced' 


Volvo said; “This follows 
joint research with foe D of T 
into the transmission control 
mechanism. It is possible fora 
driver to inadvertently misuse 
foe gear control. This could 
result in the car being in the 
reverse mode even when the 
selector lever is near the park 
position." 

Volvo dealers were autho- 
rized to replace the control 
system free of charge with a 
September target for comple- 
tion of all 33,000 cars. It was 
claimed that foe improve- 
ments to foe selector mecha- 
nism make it more difficult to 
place rhe lever fractionally out 
of position. If however, a 
driver still manages to get it 
wrong a flashing red light and 
piercing buzzer will give an 
immediate warning. 

In view of the immense 
interest shown by readers in 
this particular recall I ar- 
ranged to borrow an unmodi- 
fied 340 from Volvo's UK 
concessionaires at High Wyc- 
ombe. drive it for a few days 
and then have it modified. 

It is some years since I last 
drove a 340 equipped with foe 
company's unique belt and 
pulley continuously variable 
transmission which first saw 
the fight of day some 20 years 
ago in the Dutch Daf. That 
company was acquired by 
Volvo. The little Dafs succes- 
sor — the Volvo 340 — is still 
built in Holland. 

My immediate impression 


More details have come my 
way about the Maserati 
Biturbo model which a new 
British concessionaire compa- 
ny under the chairmanship of 
Marin Tozzi-Condivi plan to 
launch here around the time of 
the October Motor Show. 
They have been provided by 
Richard Styer, the former 
Lotus, BMW and Mitsubishi 
executive who is man agi n g 
director of Maserati (UK) with 
headquarters in, Kensington 
High Street, London. 

Styer was npset by my 
recent suggestion that the twin 
turbo-charged Maserati has 
taken four years to reach these 
shores and in the interim has 
become dated and expensive. 
He points out that the Biturbo 
coupe launched in Italy in 
1982 was a two litre only . A 
bigger 2.5 lifre was produced 
later for the LIS market. 

He says: “The UK vehicles 
are equipped with a considera- 


bly modified 2i engine which 
has undergone a tough and 
extensive development pro- 
gramme over the past four 
years. In August, 1984, the 
Biturbo 425 (2J engine) was 
launched on the Italian market 
and during 1985 the Drophead 
Spyder coupe was introduced. 
None of these cars which will 
form the basis of our entire 
model range hare ever been 
introduced in right-hand drive 
form. 


“New interiors, power steer- 
ing, automatic transmission, 
new engine development, new 
wheels and tyres together with 
water-cooled turbo chargers 
will be introduced in the UK.” 


If that is not enough to 
rekindle interest, he points out 
that Jaguar and BMW have 
maintain ed many of their ex- 
cellent design ami engineering 
features from the 1970s yet 
still sell extremely welL 


was so finely poised that a 
thump on foe floor adjoining 
the lever or brushing it with 
foe sleeve was sufficient to 
make it jump into reverse or 
drive. 

In a car with a normal 
automatic transmission that 
would not of itself be danger- 
ous because foe car would 
immediately indicate that 
something was wrong by be- 
ginning to creep forwards or 
backwards leaving sufficient 
time for remedial action. If 
you are slow in doing this the 
resulting collision would be of 
the most minor kind because 
of the lack of speed. 

The 340 does not creep 
when in gear. Nothing hap- 
pens until you depress foe 
accelerator then it moves in- 


stantly. This, it seems to me, is 
selector position to stop foe 
racket There is also foe 
warning light, but you would 
have to be stone deaf to miss 
foal buzzer and even then I 
think you would feel the 
vibrations. 

In my view Volvo has taken 
a sledgehammer to solve a 
problem which calls for a little 
more finesse. I would certainly 
not want to drive any car that 
made my hair stand on end 
every time 1 moved foe gear 
selector lever. 

Volvo tell me that a number 
of 340 owners want to have 
the buzzers disconnected in 
newly-modified cars. So why 
cany out foe modifications in 
the first place? 

It is apparently a commit- 


an lea 
automotive technology. The 
news from this week's 18- 
nation conference in London 
setting up a joint research 
programme called Eureka sug- 
gests that Europe's most prof- 
itable motor group intends to 
keep its lead well into foe 
second century of the car. But 
in achieving that aim it will 
inevitably cany the whole 
European motor industry 
along with it at the expense of 
foe ever-threatening Japanese. 

Since Professor Weiner 
Breitschwerdt, foe former 
head of research and develop- 
ment became chairman of 
Daimler Benz it has made 
major acquisitions in the field 
of aerospace and satellite tech- 
nology by buying Domier and 
AEG. It now has the in-house 
know-how and tools to press 
ahead with projects such as 
satellite-controlled naviga- 
tion, road condition early 
warning devices and comput- 
er controlled transmissions. 

Breitschwerdt has always 
frowned at the use some of his 
rivals are making of in-car 
mini-computers to give in- 
stant information on miles 
travelled, fuel consumed, av- 
erage speed, target speed and 
time to destination. The word 
is that he regards them as 
expensive toys. And where foe 
micro-chip has a part to play 
in improving foe mechanical 
performance and safety of his 
cars he has not held back. 

Austin Rover is one of 13 
European car makers taking 
part in the joint research effort 
initialed by Daimler Benz. It 
is all part of its strategy to 
move its cars up-market 
where profit maigins are big- 
ger— and nobody has done, 
that more successfully than 
foe Stuttgart giant

RACING: RED ZULU PROVIDES FIRST TRAINING SUCCESS FOR LOUGHBOROUGH-BASED WHITING 


MOD PENTATHLON 


Absentee 


Bint Pasha to initiate Cole double Cochrane injury Mahony 


By Mandarin 
(Michael Phillips) 


Paul Cole, the new master 
of Whatcombe and Richard 
Quinn, his accomplished 
young stable jockey, look 
poised to pull off a double at 
Sandown Park today with Bint 
Pasha (2.35) and Axe Valley 
(4.10). 

After finishing second in her 
first two races. Bint Pasha is 
napped to make the winner’s 
enclosure at the third attempt 
in ihe Jardine Maiden Fillies 
Stakes. 

Being by the American Tri- 
ple Crown winner Affirmed, 
out of a mare by Graustark. 
Bint Pasha should be well 
suited to today's distance and 
her trainer is more than 
hopeful that she will lead from 
start to finish. 

For a filly with her breeding 
she has already done well to be 
placed over five and six 
furlongs behind such fast indi- 
viduals as Forest Flower and 
Twyla, who have both gone on 
to win again - Forest Flower at 
Royal Ascot and Twyla at 
Newmarket last Saturday. 

My contention is that it will 
take an above-average new- 
comer to catch Bint Pasha this 
time. 

Axe Valley is not a big filly 
to be saddled with 9st 101b in 
the Inchcape Handicap, but 
what she lacks in size she 
- certainly makes up for with 
heart. 

And she is pretty quick, loo, 
as she demonstrated so ably 
here at Sandown just under 
three weeks ago when she won 
an almost identical race over 
today's course and distance. 

On that occasion she had 
All Agreed. Kelly's Royale, 
Cree Bay and Lochtillum in 
her wake and i believe that she 
capable of beating them

is 


again this afternoon, albeit on 
slightly worse terms. 

Twelve months ago Ian 
Balding won the first race on 
this particular programme 
with the fast filly Measuring. 
Now he must be hopeful that 
Sea Dara will follow suit 

When she won first time 
out. over today's course and 
distance. Sea Dara beat Sauce 
Diable who. at Windsor on 
Monday, just managed to hold 
that speedy Miswaki coll Misk 
at bay. 

With Walter Swinburn re- 
quired in Hamburg to partner 
Lavender Mist for Michael 
Stouie. Tony Kimberley will 


be on the well-bred newcomer 
Baltic Shore, whose sire Dan- 
zig has done so well at stud. 
Apparently, Baltic Shore can 
step on a bit, but Sea Dara has 
the edge on experience. 

Arguably, Stoute's best 
chance at home today lies with 
Dalgadiyr in the Royal Hong 
Kong Jockey Gub Trophy. 
Last time out he finished third 
to Moon Madness and 
Weshaam in the King George 
V Handicap at Royal Ascol 
B ut with Weshaam losing at 
Windsor on Monday that 
form now has a slight flaw and 
1 just prefer KaLkour who. 
ironically, is one of Stoute's 
cast-offs. 

At the last meeting Kalkour 
ran out a very comfortable 
winner of a similar race and I 
find it hard to believe that Al- 
Yabir can make up five 
lengths, even on 61b better 
terms. In the meantime, 
Kalkour has run really well in 
Belgium to finish second to 
Phardante in the Grand Prix 
de Bruxelles. 

Besides Dalgadiyr. who 


may well be better suited to 
today's distance than Ascot's 
mile and a half. Promised Isle, 
Rana Praiap and Try To Stop 
Me are others who will make 
life difficult for Kalkour. 

By winning at Goodwood 
and Sandown, since he landed 
a gamble at Newmarket, 


and 


winning at Salisbury 
Kempton recently. 

By the time that Michael 
Hills takes Aventino to post 
this afternoon Bold Pillager 
may well have won the Derek 
Cretch Handicap at Haydock 
where the one-time Derby 
hope Armada will be expected

on the board. Poor Athey's 
nought was bis eighth single 
figure score in his nine Test 
innings. 

It was no coincidence that 
India were held up by two left 
handers. Benson and Gower. 
Rather than leaving the bat 
Kapill’s swing was now com- 
ing into it But he was still a 
stiff proposition. In the 25 
minutes that it took Gower to 
get off the mark he was 
constantly hit'on the pads. At 
once, ceriainly. it must have 
been touch and . go whether 
Umpire Bird gave him leg 
before to KapilL Benson 
looked the sounder.- not least 
because he playsstraighter. He 
had not had long to waif 
before finding out what iris 
like to be in the thick of an 
England crisis. 


But Benson played hi< 
game, which has an encourag- 
ingly phelgmatic look to it and 
Gower began to find his touch 
and when Sharma replaced 
Binny, There were runs to be 
had on the leg side. It came as 
something of a surprise, in 
fact, when, in the third over ol 
spin, Benson played down 
quite the wrong line to 
Maninden. He managed some- 
how to play inside a ball that 
hit his off stump. At lunch, 
after 28 overs, England were 
87 for three. 

In the second over after- 
wards Gower was leg before to 
Sharma aiming to leg. In eight 
overs during the morning, 
Sharma had been hit for 50 
runs. But ■ Kapill kept him 
going and was rewarded for 
doing so. For the next hour 
and three quarters Pringle 
stayed with Gatling, another 
useful contribution to add to 
those that he made-in the first 
two Tests. The ball before he 
was out, caught at deep square 
leg. he had pulled Shastri in 
the same direction for six.

The Indian women cricketers 
are blossoming in the sunshine, 
on a perfect wicket and fast 
outfield at Stanley Park, Black- 
pool, against a backgroand of 
peaceful compromise. 

Overnight there had been 
threats by die team that they 
would refuse to play the second 
international, after allegations 
against them of time-wasting 
and a slow over rate in the first 
match at Headinglcy. 

However, a meeting between 
team managers, officials and 
umpires, reached agreement 
that an over rate of around 16 an 
hoHr would be expected and that 
the match wonld be played 
“according to the true spirit of 
cricket" 

India's openers Gargi Banerji 
and Sandhya AggrawaJ pro- 
duced an partnership of 108, 
which started brightly, but be- 
came slow. Banerji was even-

Confident Harden has 
Kent reeling in heat 

By Richard Streeton 


Maidstone Somerset with One 
second innings wicket in hand, 
lead Kent by 366 runs. 

A maiden championship hun- 
dred by Richard Harden, who is 
only 20 . underlined his growing 
reputation yesterday as he 
helped Somerset establish a 
strong position. In hot. humid 
conditions, and on a wearing 
pirch. Harden seemed un- 
troubled as the ball moved 
about freely. 

All day. runs were seldom 
easy lo come by. but Harden, 
with handsome strokes, cleanly 
struck, batted without error for 
three hours. He and Marks 
turned the game Somerset’s way 
with a fifth wicket stand of 123 
in 30 overs. 

- Harden’s confidence was 
exemplified in the manner in 
whickhc reached his century. At 
89 he off-drove a six against 
Underwood, followed with a 
single, and then pulled a four 
against Penn. Both Harden and

By Alas Gibson 

It was Bail’s day at Lord’s, 
and from the moment he came 
in on Wednesday evening, he 
looked very much like a man 
determined to make his mark by 
scoring a cemury in the Univer- 
sity match. He did indeed make 
one of the famous University 
match centuries. and 
yesterdaygave much pleasure. 

He is a tall man, air, with a 
strong cover-drive, and a power- 
ful pulL and his 1 74. out of 269 
for six. must cause some trem- 
ors among the Somerset bats- 
men. if indeed he decides to pass 
his life in that, direction. 

He seemed to be able to deal 
with any type of bowling with 
equal nonchalance (not that the 
Oxford bowling offered much 
variety) and I was surprised that 
Cambridge did not declare when 
he got out although Golding 
was going we]]. 

The pitch played comfortably, 
as it has done throughout the 


match, the weather was blessed 
with a cooling wind in the 
evening, the crowd even more 
liny than Wednesday's. But it 
was a pleasure to be there, and 
to see Bail announce his taJenL 

Meyer and Atkinson and Roe- 
buck. all that Midfield lot, must 
be proud. He is another example 
of Meyer's dictum to his pupils: 
"You come to this school to 
excel — in something” 

I was even more surprised 
that Cambridge did not declare 
when Golding was out. banging 
his bat vexaiiously on the 
ground after just missing his 50. 
The tail-cnders did something to 
improve a rather slow scoring 
rate. The declaration finally 
came, just before six. at 330 for 
eight. 

So Oxford are left with no real 
chance of victory, but with a 
grim hope of batting it out. A 
county captain who behaves like 
this would be admonished by 
his committee. 


Marks were finally caught at 
deep point. 

Somerset’s innings began 
poorly. Roebuck was out to a 
spectacular catch by Paul 
Farbrace. the Kent second team 
wicket-keeper, substituting for 
Marsh, who bruised a hand 
earlier while batting 

Farbrace. who is 18, and was 
bora at Deal, was summoned 
from a game at Canterbury. He 
flung himself to the right, and 
took a low snick from Roebuck 
in front of first slip. Two balls 
earlier, he had missed a difficult 
chance offered by Felton, who at 
22 . though, was held at first slip. 

For the second time in the 
match. Richards hinted at a 
punishing stay. He had already 
taken 14 runs from the first four 
balls ofan over by Penn when he 
squarrcut a catch from the last 
hall straight into the hands of 
deep poinL Penn took a good 
return catch soon afterwards to 
dismiss Rose. 

Kent's innings was prolonged 
until shortly after lunch, with 
Underwood for 23 overs, doing 
his utmost to outdo Dredge the 
previous day. Garner took his 
time to find his rhythm, and 
then dismissed both Cowdreys 
to quash any likelihood of a 
Kent middle order recovery. 

Without a brave innings from 
Taylor. Kent would have been, 
in dire straits. Taylor has be- 
come an accomplished no.4 
batsman. For two hours and a« 
quarter, he hit hard against 
anything loose before be was 
eighth out. 

Marsh, the nightwatchman. 
stayed half-an-hour when Kent 
resumed at 58 for 3. and was 
then caught off his glove at 
s/ion-Ieg. Chris Cowdrey edged 
his second ball to Richards at 
second slip, one of three sharp 
caichcs there, that the West 
Indian made look easy. Graham 
Cowdrey pushed forward 
opiimsiically. and was leg- 
before.

Stewart is 
decisive, 
Butcher is 
dramatic 

By Peter Ball 

CXBRIDCE: Sum r. with seven \ 
strond inntags wickers <n hand, 
lead Middlesex by 214 runs. 

A glorious 171 by Rowland 
Butcher provided the highlight 
of an eventual day’s cricket of 
nearly 450 runs, and 10 wickets I 
yesterday. The second century 
of the day. an undefeated 121 by 
Alec Stewart, was less dramatic, 
but mav prove ultimately more 
decisive, enabling Surrey to 
begin this morning with mailers 
in their own hands. 

My comments about the 
wicket in yesterday’s paper up- 
set an Uxbridge vice president 
who assured me that both 
Catting and Brearley had pro- 
claimed it the best in the 
country- Neither was there to 
confirm it, but the teams in this 
match are generally rather less 
positive. 

With something in it for 
everyone, it has, however, pro- 
vided some enthralling cricket 
for large crowds on both days. 
Butcher certainly could have 
few complaints about the wicket 
as he led Middlesex to equality 
on the first innings with an 
display foil of sparkling strokes. 
His 171 came off only 153 
deliveries, and contained 25 
fours and three sixes, enanbling 
him to reach his hundred with 
the first, and almost effortless 
straight drive. 

The loss of Radley, his last 
experienced partner, in the 
fourth over of the morning, 
provided no hindrance to his 
imperious progress. His 
domination of the bowlers and 
the course of the innings was 
absolute. 

The deg am Carr, who again 
looked a batsman of rich prom- 
ise. contributed 33 to their stand 
of i 13 in 2l overs. Rose berry 
made three out of 46 for the 
sixth wicket, Hughes four out of 
32 for the seventh. 

Clarice, who was hampered by 
a strain, and BicknelL a 17-year- 
old with an easy action and 
lively pace, were hooked and 
pulled savagely. Feitham was 
greeted with three consecutive 
driven balls and any hope he 
had of recovering was ended 
when Butcher survived his first 
change at 64. 

Mcdlycotu who had initially 
received cruel treatment, was 
also denied at 115 — a sharp 
chance to slip — but finding 
increasing turn, he held steady 
under fire and was rewarded as 
Butcher became his prize in a 
career best five for 7 1 . beaten as 
he aimed to hii the slow left- 
armer into the swimming pool. 

Ploughing 
a rich 
furrow 

By Peter Marson 

There had been a contemp- 
tuous swish to 

Nottinghamshire's tail at Trent 
Bridge, yesterday, and, un- 
doubtedly. that will have 
brought about a dash of frustra- 
tion for Warwickshire’s 
bowlers. too, as Scott made 69 
nol oul Hadlee, on his 35th 
birthday 41. and the last man. 
Saxelby 34. as Rice's men 
ploughed on towards 451. and a 
lead of 322. In the morning, 
Nottinghamshire had been 
comfortably placed at 174 for 
three from 55 overs, and with 
Rice and Johnson going at eight 
an over. Rice had got to 70. 
when he fell to a catch. 

Sharp had been 52. when 
Yorkshire began again at Bris- 
tol. 92 runs behind at 154 for 
four. If. at the outset, 
Gloucestershire's bowling had 
tended to be a shade short of a 
length then. Sharp- w bo tad got 
to 71. may have been surprised 
by Bainbridge's yorker, which 
bowled him. Bairsiow then 
made 43 as the remaining six 
wickets fell for 1 15 runs in 39 
overs. Lawrence’s five for 84 
made him Gloucestershire's 
most successful bowler. 

At Grace Road. Hampshire 
started out at 26 for one. which 
was 287 runs behind Leicester- 
shire. Chris Smith and Nicholas 
survived Agnew’s and 
Benjamin’s initial barrage, but 
with the score 70, Nicholas was 
caught in two minds, and a 
promising partnership between 
the brothers Smith was ended 
when Christopher Smith, who 
had made 58.retired. having 
been hit on the hand by a short 
pitched ball bowled by Agnew. 
Hampshire's advance by 110 
runs in 36 overs slowed a pace in 
the afternoon as another two 
wickets went down in making 82 
from 41 overs, and at 295 for 
seven. Nicholas declared. 

A splendid innings by Hick, 
who made 94. another by Curtis, 
who had displayed courage in 
making 67. and yet one more by 
Newport, whose 68 was a best 
performance, took Worcester- 
shire lo 319. and a lead of 89 
against Derbyshire, at Derby. 
Holding's seven wickets for 97. 
was also his best performance 
for Derbyshire. 

At Sophia Gardens. Cardiff. 
Younis made 105 not oul as 
Glamorgan dosed to within 57 
runs of Sussex before declaring 
at 294 for seven. Morris and 
Holmes tad given Glamorgan 
encouragement at the day's 
start, and they and Younis 
successfully countered Gould's 
efforts.

Day Goliath 
gave David 
a thrashing 


By Jim Railton 


A blustery wind gave some 
problems yesterday morning 
to coxlcss crews in particular, 
but it was a welcome relief to 
the spectators. The stewards 
on the umpires’ launches were 
in a marvellous mood, which 
reflected in their comments on 
the race-sheets. But the tempo 
of competition quickened 
which provided many dose 
finishes - almost to the point 
where the Henley stewards 
were reaching for their baby 
Brownie cameras to record the 
finishes. 

Among the dose races Har- 
vard University B were 
stretched to almost the limit 
by their compatriots from 
Boston University in the 
Ladies’ Challenge Plate and 
held on to win by a canvas. 
Nottingham boys Chris 
Unwin and Simon Larkin 
came within two feet of beat- 
ing their West German rivals 
before the course ran out for 
ihem. 

Andy Holmes and Steven 
Redgrave opened their ac- 
count in the Silver Goblets 
against John Tucker and Jo- 
seph Cincotia. of Wisconsin 
University. The Americans 
were conceding almost 4st and 
it was a doddle for the British 
pair. The race recorder wrote: 
"This has been a David and 
Goliath contest but Goliath 
won for once with utmost 
ease". Redgrave and Holmes 
are after all Olympic gold 
medal winners. 

Oxford University had a 
mixed day at the Royal Regat- 
ta. In the Thames Challenge 
Cup. Thames B had equip-

meni failure after 18 strokes 
leaving Oriel College to row 
over. Boris Rankov, who 
rowed in six winnings Boat 
Races, is back in the city of 
dreaming spires. Rankov, for- 
merly of Corpus Chrisii. and a 
junior fellow at Si Hughes was 
yesterday rowing in the 
Thames Challenge Cup in the 
engine room of the New 
College eight along with two 
Blues. Jones Canledge and 
Rob Gay. This young New 
College eight beat Queen’s 
University. Belfast by -‘A 
lengths. The Irish must have 
frightened the Oxonians 
slightly — they Iol fractionally 
after 10 strokes. 

Bin Isis, in the Visitors Cup, 
had a disastrous row against 
First and Third Trinity and 
Jesus College, Cambridge- Isis 
were warned after 20 strokes 
as oars clashed. Isis were 
warned again at Fawley. 

Throughout their steering was 
appalling. The Cambridge 
crew despite touching - the 
Booms came home a length 
and two-thirds dear. The Isis 
steersman, Derek Clark, has 
been ill and one wonders over 
their wisdom in competing in 
the circumstances.

EQUESTRIANISM 


Victorious Smith rises 
to a tough challenge 


By Jenny Mac. Arthur 


Despite complaining that the 
course was awful — “too com- 
plicated and too tight” - Har- 
vey Smith won yesterday's Next 
and Next Top Score champion- 
ship at The Royal Show at 
Sipneleigh. in Warwickshire, 
with ease. 

Riding ihe agile Sanyo Vista. 
Smith set about the challenging 
course in troicaJly determined 
fashion and finished with a total 
of 1.590 points. 

John Brown, who shared 
Smith's views on Alan Ball's 
course, was the runner-up on 
Castle Townsend but was more 
than 100 points behind Smith. 
Castle Townsend is Brown’s 
normal grand prix horse but he 
likes to put him into smaller 
speed classes every now and 
then to "gyp him up.” 

Jean Germany, who was sec- 
ond on Mandingo in 
Wednesday's same class, had 
held the early lead yesterday but 
eventually dropped back to 
third place. 

Lord Raynhatn. the chief 
steward of the grand ring an- 
swered the riders* various criti- 
cisms of the state of the going in 
the grand ring — John Whitaker 
had said that it was not level, the 
grass was too long and there was 
no spring in iu Because of the 
dry 1 weather. 22.000 gallons of 
water have been poured on to 


the ring each night since Sat- 
urday. As far as ihe length of the 
grass was concerned. Lord 
Raynham said that four inches 
was found to be the ideal length 
lo cope with all the activities in 
the grand ring. 

Lord Raynham said that it 
would be "totally impractical” 
to have a manicured lawn such 
as the showjumpers are used to 
at shows like Hickstead and the 
Great Yorkshire. He added, 
however, that the surface of the 
grand ring was due to be relaid 
in the next few years with turf 
specially grown at the Royal 
Agricultural Society. This, he 
pointed oul was not in anticipa- 
tion ofthe 1992 Olympic Games 
(if held at Birmingham, all the 
equestrian events would take 
place at Sioneleigh). “If the 
Olympics came here, the surface 
in the grand ring would be 
completely redesigned — it 
would not be grass.” he said.

Champion asks 
Bruno over 


for a hot-dog 
and Coke 


Tim Witherspoon, the 
World Boxing Association 
heavyweight champion, ar- 
rived in London yesterday 
with a seven-round warning 
for Frank Bruno, whom he 
meets for the tide in a multi- 
million-pound promotion at 
Wembley Arena on July 19. 

“i'll give him seven and if 
possible I'll cut it down to 
five." the American said. “I 
respect him and I think he's a 
good fighter but just because a 
man looks physical and strong 
doesn’t mean everything. 
What is important is what you 
know.” 

Witherspoon swept into 
Gatwick followed by an appar- 
ently endless procession of 
large black men — manager, 
assistant manager, two train- 
ers, sundry helpers and assort- 
ed sparring partners.“Not one 
of them under 2301b,” 
Witherspoon announced 
proudly. 

A rough count established 
the team at 18-strong and 
there are more to come later, 
including a doctor and a 
chiropractor. 

Witherspoon is a big, happy 


fellow who made a lot of 
friends when he fought rather 
unimpressively in Birming- 
ham last autumn. He greeted 
old acquaintances yesterday 
with obvious pleasure. “By 


rights, fighting in front ofa big 
1 in a fore if 


crowd in a foreign country 
should bother me,” he said. 
“But I feel at home and when 
the crowd starts roaring it will 
give me energy.” 

He will live and tram at 
Basildon in semi-rural Essex, 
a few miles from Bruno's 
home. “If he wants to come 
and see me train he is very 
welcome to attend my work- 
outs because I have nothing I 
want to hide. He can sit 
ringside and bring his family 
and we will all have hot-dogs 
and Cokes. Anyone who fights 
me is welcome to watch me 
train. 

“At the moment we are 
joking because we are happy 
to be here. But once we start 
training, the smiling will end.” 

The reason for the switch of 
training .quarters from Lon- 
don to Basildon was delicately 
dealt with. Was it to remove 
Witherspoon from the temp- 


— „ 2&B3BNSfcwn 

The champion shows his teeth with a lip-fastening upper-cut to the challenger's chin: 
Witherspoon illustrating a point after touchdown at Gatwick yesterday 


tations of the West End? Carl 
King, his manager, admitted 
that an ounce of prevention 
was better than a pound of 
cure. “Better to slay dear of 
diversions,” he said. 

* Witherspoon was more 
forthright: “Right now, my 
woman is Frank Bruno on 
fight night- I want him bad.” 


He admitted to the well- 
known fact that be has bad a 
drug problem. “It could have 
taken me down the wrong 
path and killed me. Instead, 
they sent me where I could get 
help rather than condemn me. 
1 am glad what happened I am 
glad 1 got found out” 

Traces of marijuana were 


discovered in a drug test after 
Witherspoon's last world title 
bout against Tony Tubbs. 
After threatening to take away 
his title, the WBA instead 
fined him heavily and ordered 
him to meet Tubbs again. 
Tubbs has been paid to stand 
aside to allow Bruno to take 
his place in the queue. 


GOLF 


Douglas 
makes 
fine start 


From John Hennessy 
Cologne 

Liselone Neumann, aged 20, 
from Sweden .and Kitrina Doug- 
las. the former British amateur 
champion, recorded a first 
round of 67. which is five under 
par. for the 5.922 yards Cologne 
Country Club course; on the 
first day of the Trust House 
Forte Classic. They led by three 
strokes, although a number of 


players were still on the course. 
Thei 


ere were only two lapses by 
Miss Neumann, each of which 
cost a stroke, in an otherwise 


immaculate round in keeping 


with her growing reputation o 
probably the best women player 
in Europe. 

A loose six iron buried the 


boll uncomfortably in the pow- 
- beside the 


dery sand of a bunker 
sixth green, and an eight iron 
came up short of the 17th. She 
took three more there, an un- 
expected setback, for her short 
game. like the rest of her golf, is 
so accomplished that for her not 
to get home with a chip and 

E utU seemed an afront to the 
iws of nature. 

Unlike other players, notably 
Dale Reid (70 yesterday) and 
Laura Davies (72). the Swedish 
player has total faith in her 
driver and left it in her bag only 
twice, apart from the four short 
holes. Her accuracy was such, 
that the fairways could have 
been reduced by 50 per cent 
without causing discomfort. 

Miss Neumann, who was a 
child progidy at 15. is now 
maturing fast, and this round 
was her best since joining the 
Women’s Professional Golf 
Association last summer. 

Miss Douglas came in with a 
67 late in the day. The key to her 
round was an improved putting 
performance under the tutelage 
of her boyfriend, Gus Thomas, 
who carries the bag. She prefers 
faster greens than those in 
Cologne and his idea was to 
practise with a soft drinks can 
placed a foot behind the hole. 
That and a reminder to herself 
as she bent over each putt to “hit 
it”, paid handsome dividends.

CYCLING: UNITED STATES DEBUT IN TOUR DE FRANCE 


Hinault chasing all-time record 



From John Wilcockson, Paris 


Millar his climbing will be tested 


Along with wine, romance 
and politics, sport is one of the 
passions of the French public. 
Since their football team was 
eliminated from the World Cup, 
the media's attention returned 
to tennis and the late of Henri 
Leconte at Wimbledon. But in 
the past few days cycling has 
returned to the top of the bar 
talk menu. 

The 73rd Tour de France 
begins today with the prologue 
in the form of a 4.6- kilometre 
(0.9 miles) time trials in the 
Borough of Bolougne-Billan- 
coun. just down river from the 
Eiffel Tower. This opening stage 
is not too significant in the 
context of the 4.100 kilometres 
(2.560 miles) that follow during 
the next 23 days, but a tiny 
victory here can give a rider a 
huge psychological advantage 
over his rivals. 

That is why Bernard Hinault, 
the 31-year-old Breton who has 
won the Tour de France five 
times, is such a dangerous 
opponent. He has won the 
prologue in each of his five last 
appearances even though he is 
not a specialist at such short 
distances. Will a victory today 

? >ur Hinault into winning the 
our a sixth time, an all-time 
record? 


The Puy de Dome is again on 
the race schedule this year, again 
two days from the finish on the 
Champs Elyse6s. and a Hinault- 
Fignon shootout is a possibility. 
But cycling has changed 
dramatically in the past two 
decades. It is both a longer and 
exclusively Continental sport. 

More than 1.100 media 
personnel accreditations have 
been processed at Boutogne- 
Billancourt in the past two days. 
They have come from 22 coun- 
tries. including the Cameroons. 
Kuwait and Japan, countries 
which have no competitors in 
the sport-

Rivalry between 
French riders 


This is one of the major points 
in the discussion that range 
everywhere that tour followers 
have gathered in the French 
capital. Most Parisians would 
like to see a third tour victory by 
Laurent Fignon. the straw- 
haired. bespectacled 25-year-old 
from the suburbs, while the 
provincials are rooting for 
HinaulL 

Bui fierce rivalry between 
French riders and their support- 
ers has not existed since the 
unforgettable duel between 
Jaques Anquetil and Raymond 
Poulidor in the early 1960s. 
Their most memorable clash 
took place on an extinct vol- 
cano. the Puy de Dome, two 
days from the end of the 1964 
race. 

Anquetil. who was seeking his 
fifth tour win. and Poulidor. 
seeking his first, fought out an 
elbow to elbow battle up the one 
in six gradient of the famous 
Corkscrew climb. Anquetil 
cracked just one kilometre from 
the lop. yielding 40 seconds to 
his rival but managing to hang 
on to the yellow jersey of the 
leadership. 


A television audience of more 
than 1.000 million is predicted 
by the race organisers. 

There are 40 cyclists from the 
American continent ibis year, 
including the firat ever team 
from the United States. Appro- 
priately. in a field of 210 
competitors, the Americans in 
the 7-eleven team will be today 
celebrating the 2 1 0th Indepen- 
dence Day. It would be a feiry 
talc come true if one of them 
should win today, but it is more 
likely that their vastly more 
experienced compatriot. Greg 
LeMond, will be challenging 
Hinault and Fignon. 

LeMond. who is in the same 
team as Hinault, needs more 
than anyone a win in the 
prologue to boost his sagging 
morale. 


Besides LeMond, Hinault and 
Fignon. the principle favourite 
are the climbers Robert Millar, 
Luis Herrera, Ure Zimmerman 
and Pedro Delgado. One man 
who should also have been 
considered is Scan Kelly, but the 
30-year old irishman has been 
forced to withdraw. The calf 
muscle he gashed in a crash two 
weeks ago failed to heal in time. 

Without Kelly. Irish hopes 
rest on Stephen Roche, who has 
missed most of this season with 
damaged knee ligaments. Roche 


appears to have little hope of 
finish 


repealing his third place 
of 1985. but if his knee holds out 
the Dubliner has the security 
and incentive to take over the 
top position from Kelly. 

Only one Englishman is on 
the starting line today. Sean 
Yates, from Sussex, was called 
in to the Peugeot team after one 
of his French colleagues was 
eliminated by a crash last 
Sunday. 


FOOTBALL 


Thomas move angers Luton’s chairman 


Mitchell Thomas, the En- 
gland Under-2I international, is 
at the centre of a dispute 
involving the first division rivals 
Tottenham Hotspur and Luton 
Town. Thomas has joined 
Tottenham after an approach by 
the former Lnloa manager. Da- 
vid Pleat, who left White Hart 
Lane six weeks ago. Luton's 
chairman. David Evans, re- 
sponded with an angry outburst 
“The relationship between 
Datid Pleat and this dub came 
to an end when he signed 
Thomas in this way. When 
David left he agreed not to 


approach our unsigned players, 
including Thomas. Within days 
of returning Grom Mexka Pleat 
has shown the same disregard 
for honour and integrity that be 
displayed when he ended his 
contract with ns to sign for 
Tottenham. 

“It is clear that what he 
describes as bis love affair with 
this dob has turned into rape. 
He took the coach and physio 
with him — now this, fm 
disgusted- “Tottenham bad val- 
ued Thomas at a “derisory” 
£175.000, Evans said. Loton 
would tell a League transfer 


tribunal that the player was 
worth nearer £1 million. 

• The consortium fighting to 
save Middlesbrough Football 
Club are prepared to step aside 
if John Robinson, the Hull City 
chairman, can guarantee the 
third division dab's 
survival.Robinson. a Scar- 
borough millionaire, has in- 
dicated be may back his son. 
Nicky, in a takeover bid thongh 
he wants more time to study 
facts and figures. Football 
League rules would prevent 
Robinson Snr from joining 
Middlesbrough. 


The club are heavily in debt 
and are due to face an adjourned 
winding up petition in the High 
Court on July 14. 

• Ron Jones, the managing 
director of Cardiff City, a fourth 
division club, seems about to 
reject an offer to return to 
Queen's Park Rangers. Jones, 
an ex-Olympic athlete, has been 
invited by Jim Gregory, the 
chairman of'QPR, to return to 
the London dub be left four 
years ago to take up a post as 
chief executive. “This is cer- 
tainly the most difficult decision 
of my life.” Jones said. 


Roma pay to play on British Cup sidelined 


Zunch (Reuter) — The Italian 
first division club. Roma, who 
have successfully appealed 
against a ban imposed after a 
bribery attempt in a European 
Cup semi-final lie against Dun- 
dee United, wilt instead pay one 
of football's highest ever fines. 
UEFA have announced. 


• Lisbon (Reuter) — Portuguese 
politicians have criticized their 
national football federation for 
banning eight players from play- 


ing again for their countrv 
folic ‘ 


..[lowing a wages row during 
the World Cup finals in Mexico. 


The UEFA appeal board have 
quashed a one-season ban and 
substituted a fine of 200.000 
Swiss francs (£74.900). equalling 
rhe previous highest financial 
penalty imposed on another 
Italian club. Inter Milan, in 
April last year. But UEFA 
confirmed a four-year ban on 
Dino Viola, the Roma presi- 
dent. whom, they claimed . 
acted alone in trying to bribe the 
French referee Michel 
VautroLin the club's home leg 
tic against Dundee United in 
April 1984. 


“The decision goes against the 
fundamental principles of the 
constitution guaranteeing our 
rights and freedoms.” said Ma- 
nuel Alegre, a Socialist, who 
asked for a parliamentary 
commission of inquiry to be 
established during a brief debate 
on the subject in the Portuguese 
parliament. 

The ban was announced on 
Wednesday as punishment for 
the 22-man squad's protest over 
bonus payments in which they 
refused to play a practice match 
only day's before their opening 
first round game against En- 
gland last month. 


Ted Croker, the Football 
Association secretary, yesterday 
buried Football League plans for 
a British Cup. The competition 
is the idea of Phil Carter, the 
Evenon chairman, who six 
weeks ago succeeded Jack 
Dunnctt as the League presi- 
dent- Croker. who today meets 
Carter at the start of the FA 
summer meeting in Gosfonh. 
said: “There is not the slightest 
chance of a British Cup com- 
petition being allowed." 

Carter bad planned to invite 
top clubs from Scotland and 
Ireland to baitie against the 
English elite, starting in the 
1987-88 season. But Croker 
insisted: “With European com- 
petitions playing the part they 
do. a British Cup would be 
totally counter-productive.” 


English clubs are banned from 
UEFA competition after the 


European Cup carnage in Brus- 
sels involving Liverpool 
supporters but there looks every 
chance of the suspension being 
lifted if the next campaign is 
trouble-free. 

"The FA. together with the 
Scottish and Irish associations, 
would have to give permission 
for a British Cup and FIFA 
would have to sanction it as 
well.” Croker confirmed. “On 
the face of it. the competition 
sounds plausible, but when you 
go into detail there are lots of 
problems. I would have ex- 
pected the new management 
committee to reach the same 
conclusion." 

Carter was elected spokesman 
for the big dubs last season 
when they demanded a better, 
deal. A new cash distribution 
structure was agreed and the 
first division is to be cut by two 
clubs over the next two years.

Hillardt 
will press 
Cram at 
Bislett 


Oslo (Renter.) — Mike 
Hillardt of Australia, a pace- 
maker in Steve Cram's epic 
world record-breaking mile run 
at the Bislett Games last year, is 
the min to watch in this year's 
event which takes place here 
tomorrow. 

That is the remarkable 
prediction of Steve Scott and 
Sydney Maree, the two world- 
class Americans competing in 
tomorrow 's so-called “Dream 
Mile” alongside Cram. 

“Becaase it is so early in the 
season few runners already have 
the confidence to punish the rest 
of the field,” said Scott, silver 
medallist behind Cram in the 
1983 world championship 1.500 
metres finaL 

“Cram has, bet so too has 
Hillardt and he conld be the one 
to challenge” was Scott's view.“I 
saw them both ran last week and 
was ranch more impressed with 
Michael ” 

No one is talking of HiDardt. 
whose best for the mile is only 
3 min 51.8 Zsec capturing Cram's 
world record of 3*4632. But he 
has poshed himself into conten- 
tion with two excellent 1,500 
metres victories in the last five 
days. 

The first came in Byrkjeco, 
Norway, last Saturday, when he 
scored an excellent win over 
Maree — one of only three men 
to rtra the distance in under 330. 
Then in Stockholm on Tuesday, 
the 25-year-old from Mel- 
bourne, who has never won a 
medal in any major champion- 
ships, won again in 3:3450 — the 
second fastest time in the world 
this year. 

Maree, a former 1,500 metres 
world record bolder, added: “It 
is difficult to say what sort of 
time the race wilt be won in, but 
Hillardt is physically capable of 
getting under 3:50. 

“His problem will be that he 
doesn't have the experience of 
running those times. It's un- 
known territory for him and it b 
difficult to know how he'll cope 
if presented with a chance of 
victory 2 00 metres out. 

“His problem might be stay- 


ing back when the pace does ‘go. 


ybe he should just go and uot 
wait for die others. Then he'll 
know just what he's capable of.” 

Cram docked the fastest mile 
of the year, 3:51.50, in 
England's international against 
the United States last Friday. 
On paper, the Olympic 1,500 
meters silver medallist should 
have hr too modi dass for his 
Australian rival, whose job it 
was in last year's race to {tick up 
the pace on the third lap to keep 
Cram on course for the world 
record. 

The world record is unlikely to 
be threatened tins year. Cram 
has built his season around 
defending his 1,500 tide at the 
European championships Jo 
Stuttgart and is not at his world 
record-breaking peak at the 
moment. 

One man who might perhaps 
have been in good enough shape 
to attempt a world record was 
Said Aouita. But the gifted 
Moroccan, who already holds 
world marks for the 1.500 and 
5.000 metres, told Reuters yes- 
terday that he had decided to 
withdraw from the race follow- 
ing Cram's late entry. 

Aouita now intends to run in 
the 10,000 metres tomorrow, his 
first appearance over the dis- 
tance at a mgjor meeting. He wOl 
taking on Alberto Cova, of Italy, 
the 10,000 metres world, Olym- 
pic and European champion. 

It is a fascinating dash of two 
electrifying sprint finishers and 
one which looks sure to keep the 
tightly-packed Bislett crowd in 
suspense until the final Straight- 

World long jump-champion 
Heike Drechsler is another late 
addition to the start list. The 
East German competes in the 
100 metres one week after 
equalling compatriot Marita 
Koch's seven-year-old 200 me- 
tres world record of 21.7k secs. 



Hunter licks 
his wounds in 
the Bushveld 


By Paid Martin 


This day a year ago Kevin. 
Cunen had his finest hour. In 
the Wimbledon singles semi- 
finals. his service, struck from 
his supple six foot one inch 
frame with awesome power and 
disguise together with sharp 
volleys, stunned Jimmy Con- 
nors into abject submission — 
just as John McEnroe had been 
humbled by the same barrage in 
the quarter-finals. Curren was 


set to reign supreme, but, as 

know: 


everyone now knows, be was 
denied a coronation by a Ger- 
man princeling. 

Today the amiable, intro- 
verted ex-South African, des- 
patched last week in round one 
by another West German, Eric 
Jelenjs seeking to rescue a 
career that has begun an omi- 
nous downward spiral Curren. 
who is 28, gives himself just two 
or three more years to capture 
the title that he believes was 
“there for the taking” last year. 

Had he won the final, he 
would be around £1.300,000 
richer today. Warren Jacques, 
his coach, estimates. At least 
£650,000 would have come 
from exhibition matches, rather 
than the £330.000 that Curren 
earned. The coming season 
promises to reduce his earnings 
to relatively modest bounds. 

He maintains he had a “men- 
tal lapse” that day last year, 
wilting, against a -player not 
mature enough to merit the tide, 
though showing signs of the 
greatness to come — Curren 
considers Becker a far tougher 
prospect this year. Still, be says, 
as Wimbledon and Australian 
Open runner-up, those nagging 
selfdoubts about his ability to 
win a major title have been 
removed. “I’ve always been a 
late bloomer,” Curren said. 

While few dispute that he has 
the grass court game to secure 
the championship, his attitude 
still leaves his coach in despair. 
“Kevin doesn't have the hungri- 
ness ofMcEnroe or Connors. He 
is content to plod along with a 
big win here and there. The 
older you grow, the less hungry 
you become.” 

Curren, who is somewhat 
stubborn, according to Jacques, 
plays too few tournaments, so 
that he is not match tough. 
Curren disputes his coach's 
assessment, maintaining that he 
cannot cope with the daily grind 
of cities, stadia, airports and 
hotels that goes with the tennis 
ciiruiL 

To his coach's chagrin, before 
Wimbledon he went on his 
annual trip to his beloved South 
African Bushveld. where a few 
companions commune with na- 
ture and reaffirm “how in- 
significant man is. I compare 





Curren: lacks determination 
myself with a leopard — a 
solitary animat very shy.' He 
likes to lie low, but hasa mind of 
his own.” 

Curren now gives thanks that 
he avoided his femiliy’s- advice 
to study pharmacy. Instead, be 
took a tennis scholarship iq 
Texas. Now it has become his 
home and he loves rambling 
across the hill country around 
Austin or will go to any lengths 
to see the - Dallas 
Cowboys. Curren. though; 
nearly became British. Like Zola 
Budd he has the right ancestry, 
the controversy surrounding the 
South African-born, runner . 
scared him off 


More Wimbledon 
coverage, page 32 


Still fiercely patriotic towards 
land. Cl 


his native land, Curren's racial 
views would not endear him to 
international opinion, and he is 
bitter at the West's efforts to 
exert pressure on South Africa. 
He believes life will be hard for 
whites under a black majority 
government, but still hopes to 
make his future there. 

Curren has never had to 
struggle in life — his white upper 
middle-class background, in 
South Africa's laid-back, coastal 
pleasure city, Durban, is seen by 
Jacques as a major (actor in 
Curren's apparent lack of win- 
at-all-costs determination. . 

Curren largely agrees.“In the 
environment I grew up in, 
winning was not everything. H 
still isn't. Tennis is a. short-term 
thing in ray career. Life is 
simply miserable if reaching the 
top means hating everyone else 
or. like McEnroe; being in 
constant fights with the umpire 
or creating tension with other 
players. You have to retain a 
happy medium. Happiness is 
not winning titles, it's how you 
feel within and how you go 
about your everyday, life.” 


Kodes calls a truce 


Jan Kodes. the 1973 Wimble- 
don champion and the present 
Czechoslovak Davis Cap cap- 
tain. would welcome back Ivan 
Lendl into his cup squad for the 
match against Yugoslavia in 
Sarajevo later this month. 

Lendl has been fighting a 
running battle with the Czecho- 
slovak tennis authorities for 
almost a year and has not played 
for his country since the 1985 
semi-final match with West 
Germany in Frankfurt last 
October. 

The Germans, inspired by 
Boris Becker, won 5-0 ana 
Lendl, who said he had a bad 
arm, played only in the doubles, 
losing in straight sets with 
Tomas Smid to Becker and 
Andreas Maurer. 

Kodes, however, knows on 
which side his bread is buttered. 
“We could do with Ivan,” he 
said. “And he has only to pick 
up a phone, knock on my door 
or send me a letter to say he will 
play.”” 


• Ramesb Krishnah is too 
much of a gentleman to make 
excuses, but he was sorely 


disappointed at losing in the 
er-ni 


men's singlesquarter-finais at 
Wimbledon. 

It wasnot so much that he was 
soundly beaten by Slobodan 
Zivojinovic, of Yugoslavia, but 
more that he would dearly have 
loved to have' followed in the 
footsteps of his father, 

Ramanathan. 

Ramanathan Krishnan was a 
Wimbledon semi-finalist in 
I960 and 1961. playing in (he 
same, elegant style as Ramesta 
does today. 

Each time Ramanathan was 
unlucky to come up against big 
serving Australian 1 eft-banders 
who both went on to win the 
title. 

Neale Fraser, the Australian 
Davis Cup captain-, beat 
Ramanathan 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 in the 
I960 semi-finals, then Rod 
Laver defeated him 6-2, 8-6, 6-2 
the following year.

EVENING OF YOUR LIFE 


(BBC2. 9.30pm) arrives dead on 
time, with the dust still Hying 
from the BMA's scoffing attack 
on alternative medicine. What 
the nine films set out to do - and 
the first, tonight's, puts up a 
powerful case for 
complementary therapies to 
be taken seriously - is to show 
some of the ways in which 
humanity tries to heal itself. 
Tonight's film is about finger- 
tip healing, the restorative power 
that lies in the touch ofa 
hand.

FRIDAY JULY 4 1986 


First published b» 1715 


Navratilova’s 

lesson 
for Sabatini 


SPORT 


By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


Martina Natratilova. cham- 
pion for the past four years 
and six times altogether, ad- 
vanced to the Wimbledon 
women's singles final once 
again by beating Gabriela 
Sabatini, of Argentina, aged 
16. by 6-2, 6-Z in only 53 
minutes yesterday. At least 
Miss Sabatini had the satisfac- 
tion of progressing farther 
than any other player from her 
country. She. was also the 
youngest player in this century 
to contest a singles semi-final. 

Miss Natratilova, aged 29, 
had great advantages in terms 
of experience, strength and 
agility. She moved the ball 
about so quicky that Miss 
Sabatini had to win a rally 
quickly, while the ball was 
within reach — if she was to 
win it at all. The longer the 
rally lasted, the more likely it 
became that Miss Sabatini 
would not reach the ball in 
time — partly because antici- 
pation is not yet sharp enough 
to get her off the mark quickly 


and partly because she is not 
all that nimble anyway. 

Miss Sabatini played many 
superb shots but was less 
adept at playing them in 
constructive and sound se- 
quences. Her first service has 
improved a great deal and in 
her first three service games 
she served four aces. She also 
demonstrated her excellent 
touch and precocious court 
sense. Her most impressive 
shot was a forehand down the-' 
line: that is. when she took the 
ball early and thus achieved a 
sudden acceleration of pace. 
But many of her strokes were 
too florid, which is to say that 
a big swing left her 1 at a 
momentary disadvantage 
when it came to regaining 
position. She did hit some 
delightfol winners, but Miss 
Natratilova was always in 
charge of the maichand nearly 
always in charge of the rallies. 

Miss Sabauni could score 
only ii points from Miss 
Natratilova’s eight service 


games. Midway through the 
second set the Argentinian 
began to look rather frustrated 
and resigned. But from 1-4 
down she suddenly produced 
a series of exciting shots, as if 
deciding that she might as well 
bang a few pictures on the wall 
for us before she left town. 

. This was more of a tutorial 
than a match. Miss 
Natratilova who holds the 
Australian title as well as 
Wimbledon's, has won her six 
matches here in straight sets at 
a total cost of only 25 games. 
She has had an easy draw and 
has certainly made the most of 
it. 

In -the final Miss 
Navratilova will play Hana 
Mandlikova, who beat Chris 
Lloyd, three times champion, 
by 7-6, 7-5 after Mrs Lloyd 
had led 5-2 in the second set. 
Miss Mandlikova beat Mrs 
Lloyd and Miss Navratilova 
in turn to win the United 
States championship

way to defeat (Photograph Ian Stewart) 


er victory and Lloyd on her 


The Frenchman, Henri Le- 
conte. who plays Boris Becker in 
the men's singles semi-finals 
today, is not loo. popular in his 
own country, because he Hits the 
ball too hard. Leconte, who beat . 
Pat Cash in the quarter-finals on 
Wednesday, cannot help him- 
self. When he sees a ball, he belts 
iL 

His friend and coach. Patrice 
Dominguez, said: "Henri is 
more popular at Wimbledon 
than in Paris.In France the 
people like to see long rallies. 
They don't like to see Henri 
going for big winners. They are 
just not used to it. He prefers the 
Wimbledon crowds because 
they like his style and give him 
so much support. And he thinks 
grass is a simple surface to play 
on.” 

Bui againstBecker he will be 
out to even a score. "It will be 
like the World Cup," said 
Leconte, a football enthusiast. 
“Germany beat France and I'm 
looking for revenge." 

Should Becker and Slobodan 
Zi vojinovic, of Yugoslavia (who 
plays Ivan Lendl in today's 
other semi-final), meet in the 
Wimbledon final on Sunday, it 
will be just like home. Both live 
in Monte Carlo and practice 


together almost daily when they 
are not engaged in tournaments. 

Zivojinovic. who describes 
his Wimbledon semi-final 
appearance as "the biggest thing 
in my career”, said: "Boris and 1 
have been playing together since 
last year, sometimes for three or 
four hours a day. But I think it's' 
not so good if you play with the 
same person every day. You can 
close your eyes and know what 
they an? going to play." 

Well. ‘Bobo', as Zivojinovic is 
known on the circuit, might live 
to rejoice in his knowledge of 
the champion’s game. 

League ideas 

Wigan are attempting to solve 
I he promotion and relegation 
problem by proposing to the 
Rugby League, a system of three 
down and two up, during the 
next two seasons. 

At the recent annual meeting 
of clubs. Various ideas were 
discussed to reduce the first 
division from 16 to 14 dubs. 
Yesterday Maurice Lindsay, the 
Wigan vice chairman, said other 
ideas. like five down and three 
up, or three down and one up. 
were either unfair or 
unworkable. 


Connor and Lynch campaign to ostracize Budd at Games 


From Pat Butcher 
Athletics Correspondent, Dresden 

Keith Connor and Andrea Lynch, 
two of the most respected former 
British athletes of West In dian 
origin, are to canvass a move by 
black members of the England 
Commonwealth Games team to os- 
tracize Zola Budd for her continuing 
South African connection. This fol- 
lows a demand from Tessa 
Sanderson, the Olympic javelin 
champion, that Miss Bndd should 
condemn apart-heid. 

Connor, the Commonwealth and 


the Olympic bronze medal, feels that 
black team members are afraid to 
voice their feelings about Miss Bndd 
for fear of reprisals from officials, 
whom they perceive to be backing 
the Sooth African-born athlete's 
every move. 

Connor, who, like Miss Lynch, is 
here on the European Grand Prix 
circuit as a coach, said yesterday: 
"When we leave the shores of 
Britain, we are our country’s ambas- 
sadors and for black people in 
Britain. But as {ong as Zola Budd 
refuses to take any stance, she Is still 


perceived as South African. 

"One of the reasons I’m saying 
. this now is that there’s going to be a 
large-scale massacre of black people 
in South Africa. I’m not saying Zola 
can save that situation, but she can 
contribute to it beneficially. She is a 
fantastic athlete, but she owes the 
British team an explanation as to 
why she isn't taking a stance. 

“What is a further disgrace is that 
the only reason that she will stop to 
train in Britain rather than go back 


borne as she has been doing for the 
last two years, is the inflammatory 
situation in South Africa.*' 

Miss Lynch, who held the United 
Kingdom 100 metres record for 10 
years, and was awarded the MBE in 
1978, now lives in Los Angeles, and 
teaches at an inter-racial foundation. 
She is on her way to Britain for the 
first time in six years to attend the 
Commonwealth Games, and is back- 
ing Connor's move to talk to the 
black athletes in the British team 
and ask them to voice their true 
feelings about Miss Bndd. 


Miss Lynch said yesterday: **If I 
were on the England team for the 
Commonwealth Games with Zota 
Bndd in it, in the current situation, I 
would boycott Edinburgh. She is stlli 
seen as South African, and Britain is 
getting a lot of negative publicity for 
thaL I’m not going to be comfortable 
going to a meeting at Crystal Palace 
and watching Zola Bndd.” 

Nigeria is the only country which 
is planning an official complaint 
about the participation of Miss Budd 
in Edinburgh, but it is felt that they 
will not go so far as to boycott the 
Commonwealth Games.

GOLF 


Faldo keeps company 
with the demigod 

From Mitchell Platts, Versailles 


Nick Faldo, conspicuous by 
his absence from the leader 
boards during the last two 
years, made his presence felt 
once more with a first-round 
of 66 in the Peugeot Open on 
the La Boulie course here 
yesterday. 

Inevitably, Severiano 
Ballesteros scored a 65. main- 
taining one of the most as- 
tounding sequences of form 
that even this demigod of the 
game has produced, but there 
was no disguising the delight 
of Faldo as he compiled his 
score alongside the Spaniard. 

"I think that playing with 
Severiano, especially when he 
is in this kind of form, can 
inspire you," Faldo said. “It 
was important to have a good 
round as it would seem the 
scoring is likely to be very low 
this week." 

What was most impressive 
about Faldo’s performance 
was the aggressive manner in 
which he played his last 
nine holes after suffering an 
acute embarrassment. He be- 
gan at the 10th. looked every 
inch as sharp as Ballesteros 
and then unaccountably took 
four putts at the 1 8th. 

Faldo has on occasions 
allowed such calamities to 
destroy his rhythm. He did 
not this time. Faldo coaxed 
home the puli of 10 feet for a 
birdie at the first — his 10th 
hole - then went on to birdie 
each or the last three holes. 

Ballesteros was impressed. 
"I like the way that Nick is 
swinging now." he said. “I 
changed mv swing in the 
winter of 1979-80 and it can 
take time to regain complete 
confidence. 1 was fortunate 
because I won the US Masters 
in the spring." 

The Spaniard altered his 
swing because he was worried 


that his career might be 
brought to a premature end 
because of the strain he was 
placing on his back. Faldo 
elected to change his because 
he was horrified by the errors 
that he saw in his swing after 
viewing it on video a little 
more than a year ago. 

“I wrote down a shopping 
list of all the things that I 
coufd see wrong and I finished 
wiih more than a dozen 
items." Faldo said. “My head 
' position, my balance, my take- 
away, my down-swing — you 
name it. and it was wrong". 

Faldo has persevered in 
moulding a new swing, with 
the assistance of the golf 
instructor, David Leadbeiter. 
but he is only now gaining 
some reward for his 
endeavours. “I have eliminat- 
ed 95 per cent of the faults and 
I am hoping to see David next 
week for confirmation, but 
everything'is right." he added. 

Ballesteros is 74 under par 
for his 29 rounds in Europe 
this season. That does not 
include the 61 he had in the 
pro-am here on Wednesday. 

In his 65 yesterday he gathered 
seven birdies and missed the 
chance of another by taking 
three putts at the long eighth 
after reaching the green in two.

Hagler an 
enigma 

Brockton, Massachusetts, 
(Reuter) - Marvelous Marvin 
Hagler, middleweight champi- 
on of the world, who was 
expected to announce a big- 
money fight against Sugar Ray 
Leonard, yesterday said that 
he was instead considering 
retirement- With rumours rag- 
ing about an $8 million (£5.3 
million) pay day for Hagler to 
meet Leonard, the former 
welterweight and junior mid- 
dleweight world title holder, 
Hagler stunned a news confer- 
ence by saying he was thinking 
of quitting. 

“1 have been a great 
champion." Hagler, aged 32. 
said. “I would like to leave the 
game and ^walk out a proud 
champion." 

Hagler. who has won 62 of 
his 66 contests, said he had 
made plenty of money and 
would like to move on “while 
I still have my faculties 
together.” His wife, Bertha, 
said: “I have a lot of influence 
on him and I think he will 
retire.” Pat Pcironelli. his 
manager, professed bewilder- 
ment. “He said something 
strange.^ He said money’s not 
everything."

SPORT IN BRIEF 


Three of 


last four 
in debt 
to Tiriac 

By Richard Evans 

Not since Rod Laver, John 
Newcombe and Tony Rocpe 
reached the last four in 1969 
has one man exerted the kind 
of influence on three Wimble- 
■ don semi-finalists as Ion 
Tiriac has this year. 

The three great Australians 
were all influenced to some 
degree by the late Harry 
Hopman. probably the great- 
est motivator and disciplinar- 
ian the game has known. 
Tiriac is cut from a very 
different doth. 

The rugged Romanian 
might stir up images of dark 
dealings in the back streets of 
Bucharest but Boris' Becker, 
Slobodan Zivojinovic and 
Henri Leconte, as well as 
anyone else who has worked 
closely with him wflj tell you, 
is a different story. 

Tiriac’s carefully cultivated 
image may scare people into 
adding another nought to the 
contracts when he negotiates 
on behalf of his players. But 
sooner or later they discover 
his grow! is worse than his 
bite. ■ 

Not that he lacks an appe- 
tite for an eye for the big deal. 
Becker’s three-year contract 
with Puma, which makes his 
rackets and his shoes, is 
reputed to be in excess of $25 
million (£16 million). But the 
management side of the tennis 
business constitutes only part 
ofTiriac’s influence Because it 
was as a coach, originally with 
Guillermo Vilas, that he began 
to make his name, after an 
average career as a player in 
the early days of the grand prix 
tour. 

Leconte, as a rebellious 
youth of 17, was Tiriac’s first 
pick after Vilas became estab- 
lished but they agreed to go 
their own ways at appro xi- 
mately the same . time as 
Becker appeared on the scene. 
Zivojinovic, a larger than life 
character searching for an 
anchor as he floated around 
the periphery of the circuit,, 
joined the stable last year and 
promptly rewarded Tiriac’s 
patience by beating John 
McEnroe on his way to the 
semi-finals of the Australian 
Open last December. 

A final between Ivan Lendl 
and Leconte would not be 
Tiriac’s choice but if that 
happens he could at least 
derive some satisfaction from 
the work he put in during the 
Frenchman's formative years. 

However, if Leconte’s wide 
variety of skills should prove 
more explosive than Becker’s 
today, Tiriac will rightfu. 
stand bade and allow Patrice 
Dominguez to take his full 
share of the credit The former 
French No.l has returned to 
Leconte’s side after a prospec- 
tive deal for Manuel Santana 
to act as his coach fell through. 
The improvement in 
Leconte’s tactical game has 
been immediately evident. 

Nevertheless, Becker beat 
Leconte in four sets in their 
only previous meeting here at 
the quarter-final stage last year 
and although 1 expect this 
encounter to be closer, I am 
slicking with my prediction 
that the youngest Wimbledon 
champion in history will re- 
tain his crown. 

Lendl, who is being turned 
into a grass court player by 
Roche, one of .these 1969 
semi-finalists, must be 
favourite to beat Zivojinovic. 
.the more so now that he has 
been thoroughly tested by the 
admirable Tim Mayotte. But 
Lendl is still vulnerable to any 
who feels completely at ease 
on grass and the massive 
Yugoslav has been convinced, 
ever since his success in 
Melbourne, that natural turf is 
tailor-made for his pounding 
style.

Brazil top 

The International Football 
Federation (FIFA) yesterday 
proclaimed Brazil winners of 
the World Cup fair play 
competition. 

Jo ao Havelange, president 
of FIFA, presented Octavio 
Pinto Guimaraes, president of 
the Brazilian Football Associ- 
ation (CBF), with a certificate 
and a trophy after the Brazil- 
ians were chosen “the champi- 
ons of sportsmanship" In 
their five matches, only three 
Brazilian players were shown 
yellow cards, none of them 
because of violent play, 
Havelange said. 

Transfer is off 

The proposed basketball 
transfer exchange deal involv- 
ing Dip Donaldson of Bir- 
mingham Bullets and Colin 
McNish of Team Polycell 
Kingston has been called off 
because Donaldson would not 
be allowed to play for Kings-

player because he is still 
classified as a foreigner. Eric

executive of Wolverhampton

fortnight’s glorious sunshine

Yet on grass, supposedly the 
British surface, we have- had 
no man in the last; 32, no 
woman in the last id. L 

Returning from tiie hyper- 
critical environment of the 
World Cup. In Mexico, it is 
unavoidable coming to the 
condos ion that If Hutchins, 
and Charles Applewaite, the 
director 'of coaching, woe in 
that sport, they wouM have - 
collected their cards. ; . ; 

This is not to say that their 
long-term objectives, their 
coaching principles, are not 
admirably designed. Tim fad 
is, however, that in profession- 
al sport it is results that count, 
and jndging -from present 
trends, some 30 years after 
Fred Perry’s last victory, Brit- 
ain may well have to wait 
another 30 years to produce a 
champion. 

Something is wrong; we 
cannot forever po on saying 
that it is the British weather. 
Fat Cash and Boris Becker 
were not created by their 
climate. The LTA official 
handbook lists some 300 
professoral coaches and 700 
associate coaches. The game is 
not short of advice, bat it has 
to be questioned whether ft is 
the right advice. 

When a system is not 
working, In business or sport, 
ft is necessary to look first at 
tiie top. Those at the top of tiie . 
LTA, in either administration 
or coaching, should be feeling 
uncomfortable. 

A few years ago Jo Dmie 
had the makings of a success- ■ 
fnl player. Some of the credit ; 
for that was undoubtedly due 
to her coach, Alan Jones. 
Then her progress stalled. It - 
has to be answered wbether . 
that was on account of her 
incapacity, technical or tern- 
-perainentai, to. continue to . 
ad ranee, whether the input J 

which Jones- was capabfe of ' 
contributing its

knowledge and experienc*^.or : 
the relationship betm ct pJay-'

mental to all such one-on-one 
combinations. 


Too parochial, 
too jealous ^ 


Because tire establishment • 
of British coaching and admin- . - 
istratiou is hierarchical, ■ too - 1 
many indmdnals tend to .be 
protecting their positions, : 
rather than thrusting dram-, 
selves in ad attitude of total 
commitment which - might, 
make them vulnerable. -If tiie- 
system at the fop is intofoarV

individual players is by coin •.

than instinctive relationships , 
discovered by trial and error . 
on the circuit, coaches lower . - 
down the scale lead to bag-, 
onto their young protiiges past • ’ 
the point when they-'.cui: ,. 
usefully assist them. The best 
instructors in ballet and music 
are those who know when the • 
moment has arrived: at which:;-.! 
they should pass their . pupils- 
into more able hands.: 

The environment- (^ British. - 
coaching is too- parodual,'..^ 
protective and jealous. In sjport ’ 
as in art, sound advice should* 
be a free-flowing currency with 
no restriction on exchange* - If - 
the preoccupation of leader- .. 
ship is the security of its own 
position, then investment, of 
money and people, is always 
likely to be unproductive.
