Protests over 
Pacific exile 

for bombers 

Two French agents who 
blew up the Greenpeace ship 
Rainbow Warrior in Auck- 
land are to spend three years 
on a French Pacific island 
instead of the next 10 years in 
a New Zealand jaiL 

The agreement between the 
two countries followed a rul- 
ing by the UN Secretary- 
General, Senor Javier Perez de 
Cugf far. ft wasreached despite 
promises from the New Zea- 
land Prime Minister, Mr Da- 
vid Lange, that there would be 
no deal, and provoked anger 
and protests in New Zealand 
last night. 

Mr Lange confirmed that 
Dominique Prieux and Alain 
Mafart would be taken from 
prison this month to the atoll 
of Hao. 

The Opposition Leader, Mr 
Jim Bolger, said the agreement 
was an about-face by Mr 
Lange; it made a fool of the 
Prime Minister, subjected 
New Zealand to international 
ridicule and undermined the 
judicial system. 

The two agents were jailed 
last year for their part in the 
sabotage of the Rainbow War- 
rior in Auckland Harbour and 
the death of a crew member. 

Yesterday Mr Lange said 
they would be surrendered to 
French authorities by July 25 
for transport to Hao, north of 
the French nuclear testing site 
at Mururoa. 

Under the ruling, the agents' 
will not be jailed and will be 
able to mix with military 
personnel and immediate 
family and friends, but will 
not be able to mix with 
villagers on the atoll or other 

Mr Lange agreed that the 
decision to deport the agents 
was “at variance** with his 
comments last year that they 
would not be released during 
the lena.jof bis. Government. . 

Front Richard Long, Wellington 

But he rejected suggestions 
this could lead to a backlash 
against the Government, em- 
phasizing that the agents 
would not be released to 

In his other rulings, Senor 
Perez de Cuellar ordered 
Prance to pay compensation 
of $7 million (£4.5 million) to 
New Zealand and to make a 
formal, unqualified apology 
for the attack on the Rainbow 

New Zealand had sought at 
least $9 million in compensa- 
tion, but France said the 
amount should not be more 
than $4miUioo. 

France was as! so ordered 
not to oppose New Zealand 

Vulnerable deal 10 

butter exports to Britain in 
1987 and 1988 at levels pro- ( 
posed by the European Com- | 
m unity, and not to take any i 
measures that might da ma ge 
New Zealand's mutton, lamb \ 
and goat-meat exports ] 

Before arbitration began, ] 
France agreed to lift its ban on i 
the import of New Zealand j 
lamb brains. Earlier restric- 
tions that hit New Zealand i 
traders included the cancella- i 
tion of orders from Bench ; 
New Caledonia. ] 

Mr Lange indicated last < 
night that the sanctions had i 
_ forced his Government to s 
accept arbitration. It did not j 

seek martyrdom, he said. It 
had the choice of “pig* 
headedly charging forward to 
compound the damage” or to 
resolve differences with 
France through arbitration. 

He chose arbitration and 
described the result as “a fair 
and just solution.” 

• PARIS: The French Prime 
Minister, M Jacques Chirac, 
announcing “the end of the 
Rainbow Warrior affair’*, said 
France undertook to abide by 
all the conditions of the ruling 
(Susan MacDonald writes). 

He said all France would 
rejoice with him at the news of 
the transfer of the prisoners, 
and in paying tribute to the 
“exemplary dignity with 
which these two officers have 
accepted and submitted to 
their imprisonment”. 

He hoped that from now on 
Franco-New Zealand relations 
could develop with a serenity 
befitted two countries with so 
many common memories. 

The former defence minis- 
ter. M Charles Hernu. who 
resigned over the scandal, said 
he was happy the position of 
the two officers had been 

the two officers had been 
finally resolved. 

If the New Zealand authori- 
ties consider the period the 
two officers will spend on Hao 
as a form of internment, the 
French are treating it in a 
slightly different light. Three 
years is the normal period for 
which military personnel are 
posted abroad.

Mr Yasuhiro Nakasone has 
taken conservative rule in 
Japan to its zenith with a 
crashing general election vic- 
tory for his Liberal Democrat- 
ic Party (LDP). 

The party has unassailable 
majorities in both Upper and 
Lower Houses of the Diet Its 
presence in the Lower House 
is its biggest since it was 
formed in 1955. 

It routed its main opposi- 
tion. the Socialists, to take 300 
seats in the House of Repre- 
sentatives, a gain of 50. At 
least four independent candi- 
dates will be joining the LDP 
in the new Parliament and 
others are likely to follow, if 
only bv voting with the party. 

TheViumph reinforces Mr 
Nakasone's prospects of seek- 
ing a third term as party 
leader. The secretary-general, 
Mr Shin Kanemaru. made it 
dear yesterday that party rules 
could be amended if members 
favoured such a change. But it 
is far from certain that long- 
. standing jealousies can be 
overcome, especially when Mr 
Nakasone has effectively 
nibbed the noses of his rivals 
into the political dirt

Women priest

The suspension of the battle 
for women priests in the 
Church of England is to be put 
to the General Synod today so 
that the Bishops may consider 
more aspects, including a 
formal splii in the church 
(Clifford Longley writes). 

The Svnod is due to discuss

his hopes having been dealt a 
heavy blow. The overwhelm- 
ing support for Mr Nakasone 
in the country may induce 
him to throw his support 
behind the Prime Minister. 

A long autumn of discreet 
bargaining over cups of hot 
sake hi Tokyo’s exclusive

The other prospective can- 
didate for the leadership. Mr 
Kiichi Miyazawa, has suffered 
a severe setback, along with 
the faction of a former Prime 
Minister. MrZenko Suzuki, to 
which he belongs. 

Mr Miyazawa is suffering 
not merely because of the size 
of the Nakasone victory but 
also because he was among the 
last to agree to the idea of 
having double elections, a 
formula which has paid off for 
the party beyond its wildest 
dreams. The most optimistic 
forecasts had not expected the 
LDP to win more than 280 
seats in the Lower House. 

The Socialist Party had a 
disastrous election, losing 27 
seats and reducing its presence 
in the house to 85, a new fow. 
It lost its vice-chairman. Its 
leader. Mr Masashi Ishibashi,

Death sentence 
on grandmother 
in Malaysia 

From M.G.G.Pil!ai, Koala Lumpur 

A grandmother aged 69 was 
sentenced to death for traffick- 
ing in 31bs of opium as funeral 
ceremonies were held for the 
two Australians hanged in 
Kuala Luinpur!s Pudu prison 
yesterday morniny. - 

The Government also an- 
nounced plans ~fbr -whipping- 
those convicted of minor drug 
offences. The reality of the 
drag problem is striking home 
in Malaysia and overseas, 
although doubts remain about 
how effective the death sen- 
tence is as a deterrent. 

Malaysia's private televi- 
sion channel TV3 said in its 

Wave of revulsion 7 
Leading article H 

news bulletins last night that 
the grandmother, a Malay- 
sian. was condemned in the 
Penang High Court which had 
sentenced Kevin John Barlow 
and Brian Geoffrey Chambers 
to death in July last year. 

Malaysia's Deputy Home 
Minister. Datuk Radzi Sheikh 
Ahmed said: “We are thinking 
of imposing a mandatory 
whipping for those found with 
less than five grammes of 
heroin. We hope it will act as a 
further deterrent” 

He said that those caught 
with less than five grammes of 
heroin were usually addicts or 
first-time users. At present 
these offenders can be jailed 
for up to a year. 'No further 
details were available. 

Concern over another 
Briton in drugs case 

By Patricia Gough 

Concern is now focused on 
another Briton awaiting trial 
on drugs charges in Malaysia. 
Mr Derrick Gregory, aged 36, 
of Richmond. Surrey’. 

Mr Jeremy Hanley. Conser- 
vative MP for Richmond and 
Barnes, fears the publicity 
which will now surround Mr 
Gregory's case could damage 
his chances of sympathetic 

“I am frightened that if Mr 
Gregory's case becomes a 
cause celtbre whatever discre- 
tionary treatment he could re- 
ceive would be seen as a sign 
that the Government was 
being soft on drug-runners." 
he told The Times. 

Mr Hanley said he belieyed 

Mr Gregory had a strong case 
for clemency if the charge was 
upheld because a brain scan 
taken in Penang showed that 
he suffered a brain injury 
when he was a boy. 

“1 hope he will be given a, 
fair trial and if he is not guilty.' 
that's great If he is guilty then 
he should be treated in a psy- 
chiatric hospital.” 

Mr Gregory has been await- 
ing trial for three years and 
eight months, ever since he 
was arrested at Penang airport 
and charged with possession 
of 576 grammes of heroin — 
more than three limes the 
total amount said to have 
been found on Barlow and 

Mrs Barbara Barlow and her 
daughter Michele left for 
home in Adelaide. South Aus- 
tralia last night about 10 
hours after her executed son 
Kevin was cremated. Also 
hinged with him was Brian 
Chambers, whose family had 
derided to bury him in Sidney. 

While the two men mount- 
ed the gallows together at 
about 6.10am local time yes- 
terday. their families contin- 
ued to trade insults and 
accusations with each other. 

Two hours earlier Mrs Bar- 
low had walked into Mrs 
Chambers’ room in the Kuala 
Lumpur Hilton where they 
knelt in private prayer, but 
Mrs Barlow said later that she 
walked out when Mrs Cham- 
bers attacked Kevin Barlow 
for leading her son to the 

Mis Barlow in turn accused 
Brian Chambers of being a 
drag trafficker — while main- 
taining her son’s innocence — 
in a television interview wide- 
ly broadcast in Australia 
shortly after the executions. 

The two families have bare- 
ly talked to each other since 
the countdown to the execu- 
tions began two weeks ago. 

A prison official confirmed 
the executions at 6.45am local 
lime yesterday. A prison van 
drove out of the gates with the 
bodies to the mortuary.

Horrocks resigns from BL as losses worsen 

By Edward Townsend 

Industrial Correspondent 

Mr Ray Horrocks, chief 
executive of BL Cara, has 
resigned, it was disclosed yes- 
terday. At the same time, Mr 
Graham Day. the new group 
c hairman, said the company 
faced a significant financial 
deterioration in the first half of

%rip delayed 
flit Howe vows 
to see Botha 

By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 

Sir Geoffrey Howe last 
night pledged to pursue with 
patience and determination 
his peace mission to South 
Africa after calling off this 
week's planned visit to Pre- 
toria but announcing that he 
would leave today for visits to 
Zambia and Zimbabwe. 

Last night he told the Com- 
mons Foreign Affairs Com- 
mittee that it was wrong to be 
“unduly discouraged” by the 
initial reactions to the mission 
he was to undertake on behalf 
ofthe European Community. 

Sir Geoffrey had earlier told 
the Commons of his decision, 
taken earlier yesterday in con- 
sultation with the Prime Min- 
ister, not to go to South Africa 
this week because President 
P. W. Botha was unavailable 
to see him. 

The derision represents a 
big setback for the mission, 
but the Foreign Office is now 
considering alternative dales 
given by Pretoria for a visit 
next month. 

Those dates are expected to 
be announced after Sir Geof- 
frey returns from this week's 
visits to Zambia and 

Yesterday’s development 
came after a weekend of 
frantic diplomatic activity as 
the Government tried hara to 
persuade Mr Botha, said to be 
on holiday, to change his 
mind. Mrs Thatcher is be- 
lieved to have sent him a 
personal message. 

Sir Geoffrey was offered the 
opportunity of seeing Mr R.F. 
(Pik) Botha, the South African 
Foreign Minister, this week 
but agreed with Mrs Thatcher 
that he should go only if he 

could see the state president 

After a visit today to the 
European Parliament in Stras- 
bourg, Sir Geoffrey will fly to 
Lusaka where he will have 
talks with President Kennetii 
Kaunda of Zambia. Later in 
the week he will fly to Harare 
where he will see Mr Robert 
Mugabe, the Zimbabwian 
Prime Minister. 

The British Government 
embarrassed by the refusal of 
Mr Botha to see Sir Geoffrey, 
was yesterday determined to

ers to see him and the “hu-

Synod support for 
urgent sanctions 

By Angella Johnson 

The General Synod yester- 
day overwhelmingly commit- 
ted the Church of England in 
favour of immediate econom- 
ic sanctions against South 

The Synod’s decision was 
fully endorsed by the Church 
Commissioners, one of the 
largest institutions and inves- 
tors in the City, with about £2 
billion in assets. 

The move also gained the 
support of the Archbishop of 
Canterbury, who said; “I be- 
lieve the sharp economic mea- 
sures or sanctions, whichever 
one prefers to call them, 
selected for maximum impact 
with all the economic insight 
and skill that can be mustered, 
offer the only hope there is, 
however slender, of doing 
what we can in this country to 
stop the present bloodshed 
and prevent it becoming far 

Dr Runcie read out a tele- 
gram from Bishop Desmond 

Tutu to the General Synod, 
which said: “We know that 
justice and goodness will pre- 
vail. There is nothing they can 
do against the Church of God. 
not even hell can prevail 
against it”. 

Dr Runcie said that each 
new wave of unrest and 
refusal to talk with Nelson 
Mandela or other ANC lead- 
ers increased the prospects of 
uncontrollable violence. 

The motion, which was 
carried 394-21 , urged the Brit- 
ish Government “to deploy 
effective sanctions against 
South Africa". It also called on 
banks and financial institu- 
tions to increase the pressure 
on Pretoria by withdrawing 
some of their investments. 

A spokesman for the 
Church Commissioners said 
last night that less than 0.5 per 
cent of its annual income 
came from investments with 
multi-national companies in 
South Africa.

Drift of tax inspectors 
to higher-paid jobs 
angers Inland Revenue 

By Lawrence Lever 

The Inland Revenue has 
dashed with the legal and 
accountano professions over 
the number of tax inspectors 
who are being lured away 
from their jobs by large pay 
offers from the professions. 

The number of fully-trained 
tax inspectors who have re- 
signed has leapt almost four- 
fold from 34 to 130. in the past 
three years, representing an 
increase from 1.3 per cent of 
the total inspectorate to 5 per 

Figures for non-t rained staff 
leaving also show a big in-

the Inland Revenue will be a 
severe blow to the professions 
who have grown accustomed 
to being able to get the views 
of the technical division staff

they were considering imple- 
menting for their clients.The 
low levels of pay inside the tax 
inspectorate have made in-

a basic £7.324. while the 
average pay for trained tax

Steel alert 
on Labour 


By Sheila Gann 
Political Staff 

Mr David Steel the Liberal 
leader, yesterday attacked the 
Labour Party's new “social 
ownership" strategy as merely 
a repackaging of its old 

The strategy will allow a 
Labour Government to regain 
control of privatized industries 
without having to buy back all 
the shares. 

“What it means is no 
change in the substance and 
constitution of the Labour 
Party," Mr Steel said. “What 
they are changing is the 
packaging and labelling." 

He was speaking during the 
second of his three planned 
visits to Newcastle-under- 
Lyme to back np the Alliance 
candidate, Mr Alan Thomas, a 
lecturer and Campaign for 
Nuclear Disarmament 

With Labour's Mrs Uin 
Golding supremely confident 
of increasing her husband's 
general election majority of 
24104 next week, the fight for 
second place has taken on an 
added sharpness. 

The Liberals, needled by 
Conservative jibes about the 
Alliance split ou defence poli- 
cy, produced their own list of 
40 “splits" in the Conservative 
ranks over the past 15 months.

Liberal arts plan 
to replace grants 

By Gavin Bell, Arts Correspondent 

The Liberal .Party has pro- 
posed a £1 billion scheme 
under which annual grants to 
the arts would be replaced by 
endowment trusts, to elimi- 
nate political pressures and 
“dubious deals" between the 
subsidized and the commer- 
cial theatre. 

Mr Bill Pearson, a member 
of the party's arts panel said 
yesterday that a controversy 
surrounding Sir Peter Hall 
and Mr Trevor Nunn had 
highlighted the dangers of the 
commercial sector res ->ing the 
benefits of subsidized 

“Annual subsidies encour- 
age arts organizations to bud- 
get every year for containable 
deficits. This means that when 
there are likely to be profits, 
they are hived off into com- 
mercial companies. 

“This is one of the great 
dangers that has recently sur- 
faced with the Hall-Nunn’s not just a problem 
with Hall and Nunn, it's a 
problem right the way round 
the system.” he said. 

Sir Peter and Mr Nunn, the 
heads of the National Theatre 
and the Royal Shakespeare 
Company respectively, have 
rejected allegations by The 
Sunday Times that they have 
amassed personal fortunes 
from the transfer of produc- 
tions from their institutions to 
the commercial theatre. 

Mr John Elsom, chairman 
of the Liberal arts panel said 
one aim of their proposal was 

“to stop the taxpayer paying 
the costs of a new production, 
while your commercial impre- 
sario reaps the profits." 

Under the present system, 
arts enterprises were discour- 
aged from making profits for 
fear that they would limit later 

The idea was to establish 
capital funds of sufficient size 
to yield an interest which 
would replace all or a sub- 
stantial part of, present annual 

An enterprise would then 
become largely self-sufficient 
and able to plan much further 
ahead, with a view to profit- 
able activity that would be 
channelled back into new 

The panel conceded that the 
establishment of capital funds 
that would need to be 12 to 1 5 
times the size of present 
subsidies .might appear “an 
impossible dream” to most 
arts enterprises. 

Mr Elsom estimated that 
total funding for subsidized 
organizations over a seven- 
year transitional period would 
be about £1 billion, but tbat 
would be recouped eventually 
by closing the “bottomless 
pit" into which grants were 
poured every year. 

Hie Arts Council, which the 
Liberal Party wants replaced 
by a new National Arts Devel- 
opment Board, is conducting 
an inquiry into all aspects of 

Strip searches ‘a deterrent’ 

By Richard Ford 

The Government yesterday 
defended strip searching of 
woman prisoners in Northern 
Ireland after a report claimed 
that it was not justified on 
security grounds. 

Mr Nicholas Scott, Parlia- 
mentary Under Secretary of 
State at the Northern Ireland 
Office, said it was a rare 
month in which there were 
two strip searches on any 
prisoner but that it was needed 
as a deterrent 

He said that a report into 
the penal system of the Irish 
Republic had concluded there 
was no alternative to strip 

searches as a means of detect- 
ing the concealment of illicit 

A report by the National 
Council for Civil Liberties 
said that random strip search- 
es of women in the north’s 
prisons should only occur on 
their entry and discharge from 
the jail. It said that the 
authorities could use a “rub 
down” search accompanied 
by the use of detection equip- 
ment as an alternative. 

The inquiry team of five 
women added that better pris- 
on security could eliminate 
the need for strip searching 

which offended dignity and 
was perceived as degrading 
treatment by some of those on 
whom it was imposed, 

• Two “loyalist” hunger strik- 
ers at Magilligan Prison. Co 
Londonderry, were trans- 
ferred to the prison hospital 

A spokesman for the North- 
ern Ireland Office said the 
move was to help observation 
and there was no cause for 
concern about the health of 
the two men.Francis Curry 
and Joseph Nellins have re- 
fused food for three weeks in 
protest against all conditions.

Lord Gifford, with the report of the committee he chaired into last year’s Tottenham riots. 

Riot inquiry blames police 

A fundamental breakdown 
in the relationship between 
the police and the local com- 
munity was a root cause of last 
year's Tottenham riot m north 
London, according to the 
findings of an independent 
inquiry set up by Haringey 

The Metropolitan Police, 
who refused to give evidence 
to the inquiry into the distur- 
bances on the Broadwater 
Farm Estate in Tottenham last 
October, in which a -police 
constable was killed, are 
heavily criticized and accused 
of “oppressive and racist 
policing". The report was 
published yesterday. 

Haringey Council set up the 
Broadwater Farm inquiry, un- 
der the chairmanship of Lord 
Gifford, QC, a Labour peer, 
after the Home Secretary re- 
jected its call for a public 

The inquiry is also critical 
of Hari ngey Council for allow- 
ing the Broadwater Farm es- 
tate to degenerate into a state 
of disrepair and for its educa- 
tion policies towards black 

children in local schools. 

The inquiry's recommenda- 
tions are: cooperative polic- 
ing, based on mutual respect 
and equality, to be drawn up 
by community leaders and 
police: a police training unit 
for race issues and community 
awareness to be set up in 
Tottenham: a jobs creation 
plan to boost the economy of 
the estate; more government 
grams for Haringey, in line 
with other deprived boroughs. 
Other recommendations are: a 
council contracts compliance 
policy to .ensure that firms 
with local authority tenders 
adopt equal oportunity prac- 
tices; new housing and educa- 
tion policies to be adopted by 
the council to combat racism; 
ethnic records to be kepi by 
the council on schools, hous- 
ing and employment: more 
black teachers in local schools 
and die introduction of multi- 
cultural lessons; more consul- 
tation between the 
community, the police and 
government departments on 
decisions affecting the estate; 
police complaints to be dealt 

with in a realistic manner to 
gain public trust; magistrates 
to use their legal powers to 
stamp out legal abuses such as 
people being refused access to 
a solicitor and an elected 
authority to run the police. 

Lord Gifford said yesterday: 
“We say essentially that the 
tragedy of October 6 last year 
arose because of the terrible 
state of the relationship be- 
tween “the police and the 

“People had experienced 
real and bitter examples of 
oppressive and racist policing. 
That could have been differ- 
ent had there been a desire 
shown by senior police leaders 
to grapple with the issues. 

“Some police officers tried, 
some talked with the youth 
association and other organi- 
zations on the estate, but their 
conversations never got fur- 
ther than a kind of press 
relations exercise because 
there was no support at the top 
level or from home beat 
officers, who were told itwas 
not their job to meet commu- 
nity’ leaders.” 

Mother who killed 
three sons is jailed 

A mother who killed her 
three children by smothering 
them with a pillow was jailed 
for two years yesterday at the 
High Court sitting in Glasgow. 

Mrs Catherine Maxwell, 
aged 24, of NitshiU; Glasgow, 
was originally charged with 
murdering her- sons, David, 
aged 7. Michael 4, and Ryan, 
10 weeks, but pleaded guilty to 
a reduced charge of culpable 

The court was told that Mrs 
Maxwell had been suffering 
from post-natal depression in 
the weeks after Ryan’s birth. 

On the night of March 18, 
the man wiutg whom she was 
living, James, kissed the chil- 
dren good night before leaving 
for the pub with a friend. 

Advocate Depute Mr Wil- 
liam Nimmo Smith, QC, for 
the prosecution, said: “It 
seems that not very long after 
the two men had left she 
smothered all three children 
by placing pillows over their 
faces. At about that time she 
seems to have written a note.” 

The note said: “I am sorry 
Chum [her pet name for her 
husband], I can't take life any 
more. Please try to forgive me. 
I love you very much. 1 do 
really. Tell mum I love her, 
too. I can't leave the kids. 
Now nobody will ever hurt 
them. They didn’t suffer. Bury 
them with me.” 

The court was told that Mrs 
Maxwell then took a .razor- 
blade and slashed her wrists. 
She lay down on the bed where 
the two elder children lay 
dead, with the baby in a pram 
by her side. 

Mr Nimmo Smith, QG said 
that when she woke np it 
seems that she abandoned any 
idea of killing herself and 
rushed to neighbours telling 
them she had killed her 

Dr Alexander Cooper, a 
consultant ' psychiatrist, of 
Levemdale hospital said 
there was no past history of 
mental illness. 

But after leaving hospital 
after Ryan's birth, Mrs Max- 
well was depressed, burst into 
tears for no obvious reason, 
cried and did not want to get 
out of bed. She was unwilling 
to let her sister handle the 
baby and when her mother 
visited her she found her 
daughter had not washed for 
several days, changed her 
clothes or done any 

Mrs Maxwell refused to let 
her mother make an appoint- 
ment with her doctor. 

Dr Cooper said she was 
suffering from post-natal de- 
pression, and at the time of the 
killings was in a “premenstru- 
al phase". 

Mr Alistair Cameron, QG 
defendinbg, urged that Mrs 
Maxwell be treated in 

But the judge. Lord Robert- 
son, said the court must 
impose a sentence “which will 
mark the grave view, which 
has to be taken of this crime”. 

He jailed Mrs Maxwell for 
two years, backdated to March 
20. and directed that all the 
medical reports be sent to the 

Control of 

prison aut 

By George Hill 

The Prime Minister should 
give up control of the Civil 
Service to a politically neutral 
commission appointed by the ‘ 
Speaker. Mr William Rodgere, • 
vice-president of the Social 
Democratic Party, said 

“Morale in the service is as 
low as it has ever been because 
it is getting the worst of all 
possible worlds. 

“The head of the Civil 
Service should be the most 
senior official in Whitehall 
and have no other duties. Day 
to day management of the 
service should not be the task 
of the Cabinet Secretary, re- 
sponsible to the Prime Minis- 
ter, nor of the Permanent 
Secretary of the Treasury.” 

The Prime Minister should 
give up the role and formal 
title of “Minister for the Civil 
Service" and the service 
should have its political neu- 
trality put beyond doubt by | 
being put under the control of 
a Civil Service commission 
appointed by the Speaker on 
the advice of a Commons 
select committee or of Privy

A ballot of prison officers 
about ending a long running 
manning dispute has been 
suspended because of the 
staffing disagreement at Risley 
Remand Centre. • 

The 19.500 membeis of the 
Prison Officers Association 
had started voting last week 
and the count was due this 
week. Initial indications were 
that" there was a majority in 
favour of ending the dispute. 

Talks were held yesterday at 
the Prison Department be- 
tween top officials and associ- 
ation leaders to try to settle the 
Risley dispute,. otherwise ac- 
tion could spread.

staffing levels at Risley and a

throughout the weekend. 

The- Prison Department 
said that the local branch of 
the association refused to 
cooperate with a manpower 
team which arrived. yesterday 
to assess the association's 
claim that two officers were 
needed to man the four cells at 
the centre of the dispute. 

The association argued that 
the dispute had gone to par 
tional levels but the Prison 
Department is anxious that 
every local dispute should not 
be decided nationally. 

When used for top security 
prisoners there were two offi- 
cers patrolling the celt block 
and the doors were, locked.

making ' scientific observa-

worse than boys in dealing 
with physics concepts, accord- 
ing to a report published 
yesterday by the 
Government's Assessment of 
Performance Unit, 

The report, which draws on 
five years of annual surveys of 
pupils aged il. 13 and 15, 
shows that girls are as good as 
boys at applying biology and 
chemistry concepts at the age 
of 11 and 13. It is in physics

The relatively poor under- 
standing of physics concepts

1 1, 13 and 15. and the gap in 
performance persists even 
among the clever boys and 

This reflects differences in 
the kind of hobbies preferred 
by boys and girls, the report 
suggests, with girls favouring

as sewing and cooking and

Age limit for jury 
service may be 70 

By Philip Webstar 
Chief Political 

The Government is -plan- 
ning to return to the older 
generation the right to sit on 
juries. Under legislation ex- 
pected in the next session of 
Parliament the upper age limit 
for juiy service is expected to 
be raised from 65 to 70. 
although people in that age 
group will have the right to 
refuse if they wish. 

The plan is backed by 
ministers, who accept the 
validity of growing complaints 
about the quality of some 
juries, and the need for more 
people of seniority and profes- 
sional experience to sit on 
them. Criticism about too 
many youthful juries resulting 
in too many acquittals is felt 
by some ministers to have 

It also fits with’ the belief of 
ministers, including Mis Mar- 
garet Thatcher, that retired 
people should be given every 

opportunity to play an active 
part in the community. 

Under the change, expected 
in the Criminal Justice Bill 
already promised for early in 
the new session, some two and 
a half million more people will 
be made eligible for jury 

The age limit was reduced 
from 70 to 65 in 1972. but the 
Government believes that giv- 
ing people the right voluntari- 
ly to serve, if called, until they 
are 70. would reflect the fact 
that people generally are living 
longer and are healthier at the 
time of retirement. 

Previous studies have re- 
jected change, riling the hard- 
ship that jury service may 
impose in terms of travel, long 
periods of concentration and 
the greater likelihood of im- 
paired eyesight and hearing 
among the elderly. 

But ministers now believe 
that, provided people have the 
right to be excused if they 
wish, the jury system could 
only benefit 

RSPCA given pledge 
on foxhunting leaflet 

The Royal Society for the 
Prevention of Cruelty to Ani- 
mals has won a High Court 
battle over a pro-foxhunting 
leaflet issued by the British 
Field Sports Society. 

The BFSS promised at a 
private hearing before Mr 
Justice Walton yesterday not 
to use the RSPCA logo on the 
leaflet Foxhunting: why the 
RSPCA is wrong. 

The BFSS also agreed to 
destroy all leaflets already 
printed and pay all the 

RSPCA’s legal costs after they 
were sued for infringement of 
copyright and passing off 

The court undertaking was 
given by Lord Margadale. 
president of the BFSS, Sir 
Bernard Waley-Cohen. deputy 
president, and Sir Stephen 
Hastings, the chairman. 

Mrs Joan Sehhouse, chair- 
man of the RSPCA. said after 
the hearing: “This leaflet was 
in our view highly misleading, 
so we are delighted the BFSS 
has recanted.

satirical studies of political life 
at Westminster. 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher, 
who opened last year's show, 
praised his work and referred 
to him as the “modern Spy". 

A series of three cartoons, 
painted in water-colours, 
which feature Mrs Thatcher 
and politicians from both 
Houses, take pride of place in 
this year's exhibition in the 
Upper Waiting Hall. 

Mr David Crouch, Conser- 
vative MP for Canterbury, and 
a keen water-colourist, de- 
scribed PC NuttafFs cartoons 
as “outstanding". 

“They improve every year 
and the advisory committee on 
arts plans to boy at least two of 
the cartoons to hang in the

Camera shy and reluctant to 
talk much about his other 
career as an artist, PC Nuttail 
said that be didn't mind being 
called a “modern Spy". 

“I started out with portraits 
and then ventured into carica-

yon see many characters. This 
is a wonderful vantage point.” 

However, the public will not 
be able to view a fourth

Nuttail, which features some

Dealers in £lm ‘heroin 
misery 9 sent to prison 

Two heroin dealers who 
were trapped by undercover 
policemen as they prepared to 
put “£l million worth of 
misery” on to Britain's streets, 
were given jail sentences at the 
Central Criminal Court. 

Judge Rant told Shewaraxn 
Punjabi, aged 50, a natural- 
ized Briton, and 
Hajimohammed Makwana, 
aged 40, an Indian national: 
“Trading in heroin is about 
the worst crime short of 
murder in the criminal 

“The reason why it is such a 
contemptible and nlihy activi- 
ty is because, perhaps almost 
uniquely so far as crime is 
concerned, there is bound to 
be harm of a serious nature 
caused to others as a result. 

“I propose to sentence both 
of you in terras of the quantity 

you were dealing with. The 
quantity of the drug indicates 
the quantity of human misery 
which would result if it had 
gone on to the streets.” 

He jailed Punjabi, of 
Smallberry Avenue, Isle- 
worth, west London, for 13 
years, and Makwana. of Al- 
leyn Court, Sussex Gardens, 
Bayswaier. west London, for 
nine years. Both were convict- 
ed by a jury of possessing 
more than £1 million worth of 
heroin on October 28, 1984. 

The judge recommended 
Makwana for deportation. 

He said that Pirlimaen! had 
recently underlined its serious 
view of heroin trafficking by 
raising, from 14 years to life, 
the maximum sentence. But 
he was bound by the maxi- 
mum sentence — 14 years — 
which applied at the time.

Damages for child blunder 

A mother won damages in 
the High.Court yesterday after 
giving away her new-born 
daughter because of a hospital 

Her daughter, now aged 4, 
who is being adopted by foster 
parents, is also seeking dam- 
ages for the accident which left 
her severely handicapped. 

Mrs Margaret Puxon, QC, 
counsel for the girl, told Mr 
Justice AJliott that Sandra 
Roberts had been rejected by 
her mother and that there was 
“no bonding" between them. 

Sandra was born prema- 

turely in November 1981 at 
West Suffolk Hospital. Bury 
St Edmunds, and had been 
given a massive blood transfu- 
sion because her parents had 
rare incompatible blood. 

The court was told that she 
had suffered a heart attack and 
brain damage, and was now 
deaf and spastic in her lower 
limbs, although she could 
crawl, with the mind of a child 
aged 18 months to two years. 

The hospital has been ac- 
cused of going ahead with the 
birth when it did not have the 
proper facilities, and of not 

giving the mother tests which 
would have allowed the baby 
to be treated. 

Mrs Puxon said that the 
mother, Mrs Julie Roberts, of 
Mouse Rougham. Bury St 
Edmunds, had suffered dis- 
tress and feelings of rejection 
after the birth and Sandra had 
been taken away from her. 

The East Anglian Regional 
Health Authority has agreed 
to pay damages to both par- 
ties. but is contesting the 
amount to be paid to the child.

A Toyota sports coape de-

goes on sale in British show- 
rooms today. The I3$mph 
Supra is the fastest prod action 
car yet from Japan's largest 
motor manufacturer. 

It Is not only faster bat more 
lavishly equipped than the big 
selling Porsche 924S. At 
£1539, h costs £3.000 more 
than the previous Supra but is 
still about £200 cheaper than 
the Porsche. 

A front-engine, rear-driven 
2+2 Grand Tourer, it comes 
standard with power steering, 
air conditioning, anise con- 
trol, central locking, electric 
windows, multi-adjustable 
seats and steering column and 

a stereo radio/eassette player 
with four speakers. 

The 3-litre, 6-cylinder en- 
gine is claimed to be one of the 
most technically advanced in 
the world with four valves per 
cylinder, double overhead 
camshafts, twin nozzle fuel 
injection and an electronic 
system which controls the 
engine's efficiency and identi- 
fies problems. 

In the event of a serious 
malfunction it will override the 
driver and stop the engine. 

The new Supra will still 
have to prove itself to fast 
drivers to win them over from

asked whether it remained his 
intention to visit South Africa 
and . if so. what were His plans. 
Sir Geoffrey Howe said that he 
intended to make an early start 
on the mission entrusted to him 
at the recent European Council 
meeting in The Hague. 

I accordingly proposed last 
week to the Governments of 
Zambia. Zimbabwe and South 
Africa (he said) that I should 
visit them in the period July 9- 
M on the first stage of the 
mission. . . , 

The Zambian authorities had 
confirmed that a visit this week 
was convenient. The 
Zimbabwean authorities had 
given a similar indication but he 
was waiting for this to be

Further visits to and within

Mr Healey asked whether the 
refusal of black leaders to see Sir

snub from President Botha did 
not confirm his initial doubts 
about the wisdom of the

Council for mandatory sanc-

Sir Geoffrey Howe discounted 
any suggesuon of there being a 
snub. He had been entrusted by 
the European Community with 
a mission of some importance 
and difficulty. He intended to 
pursue it with patience and 
determination and see. as for he 
could those he ought to set 
As far as the outcome of the 
mission was concerned, he was 
not able to say when it would 
come to a conclusion. 

Certain measures (he said) 
have been taken in the past 
against South Africa and certain 
other contingencies are being 
studied . , , 

He would certainly take the 
opportunity of meeting mem- 
bers of the ANC because it was . 
important to urge them, as well 
as everybody else, to turn away 
from violence and go down the 
path of dialogue. He would try 
his best to repair the fences Mr 
Healey had broken. 

Mr David Steel, Leader of the 
Liberal Party, said they wished 
Sir Geoffrey's series of missions 
all success and hoped he would 
be able to talk with all the people 
he wanted to see. 

His chances of doing that 
would be greater if be stressed 
that he was going as President of 

the Council of Ministers. As 
such, he would not be handi- 
capped by Mrs Thatcher’s pub- 
lic foot-dragging on sanctions. 

He should make it dear to the 
South African government that 
the question was not whether 
white minority rule ended but 
that it should be sooner and 
peacefully, rather than later and 
violently. . , . 

Sir Geoffrey Howe said that 
President Botha had said apart- 
heid was an outmoded system; 
that he looked forward to a 
situation which would not be 
dominated by any race. 

These were pointers in the 
right direction. They would help 
Sir Anthony Kershaw (Stroud,

Committee on Foreign Affaire,

Governments which were al- 
most the most important Gov-

was bound to get the good will 
and support of ail people of good 
will and good sense. 

He referred to the outburst 
against sanctions at the weekend 

by the South African Foreign 
Minister (Mr “Pik" Botha) 
which seemed to be a change of 
emphasis, saying: “Come and

reported in newspapers and 
elsewhere, even if in these 
circumstances it was tempting 
to do so. _ . ,

that the release of Nelson

Mandela himself, in an inter- 
view a British newspaper last

Sir Geoffrey Howe referred to 
the European CounciTs asser- 
tion that the dialogue for which 
everyone was looking could not 
take place so long as recognized 
black leaders were detained and 
their organizations proscribed.

took the same view as the

carefully were impressed by the 
need for a patient and cautious 

Sir John Biggs-Dimson (Ep- 
ping Forest, O said the sort of 
sanctions being called for 
against South Africa would have 
a catastrophic effect upon some 
of those other countries that Sir 
Geoffrey was about to visit with 
MPs’ good will. 

To think that sanctions would 
bring any desirable effect 
showed a misunderstanding of 
the South African government 
and of and Afrikaaners 

It was important to encourage 
as well as to warn. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe said there 
was real force in what Sir John 
had said. 

Mr John Evans (St Helens 
North, Lab): If he has not been 
snubbed and humiliated by the 
South African government, can 
he tell the House the date of his 
rearranged visit to South Africa 
and if it will take place before 
the Commonwealth summit? 

If he does not see President 
Botha and the foreign secretary, 
he must see Nelson Mandela. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe: I shall tell 
the House the date or dates of 
my fiiiure visit when they are 
clear. They are still subjert to 
discussion. Those I hope to see 
include all those he has 
mentioned. _ 

Sir David Price (Eastleigh. C): 
Will he explain to those who 
criticize this mission that this 
country started this century with 
nearly 500,000 men at arms 
against the Afrikaans and ! 
22,000 perished as a result. Our 
opposition to the Boers has been 
impeccable. (Laughter) 

Sir Geoffrey Howe: I am always 
grateful for the depth and 
breadth of his historical analysis 
but 1 shall try to concern myself 
with more recent events. 

Mr Laurence Paritt (Brent

were said m 1963. The longer 
the unresolved policy of apart- 
heid is continued in South 
Africa the harder has become 
the task of its removal In

one should take account of the 
steps that have been taken in the 
last year or two. It has become

Mr Frank Field: Is the Foreign

ened or weakened if it is dear 
that the European Community

sition has been made dear in the

sures are now the subject of

The six main objectives of the 
industrial policy of the Depart- 
ment of Trade and Industry 
were outlined to the Commons 
bv Mr John Butcher. Under 
Secretary of State in the Depart- 
menL during a debate an the 
future of manufacturing 

The first objective, he said, 
was to support and disseminate 
the best practices in gening 
world beating products to the 

Thesecondly was to enhance 
the competitive environment 
and where competition was 
imparted or did not exist, to 
introduce safeguards required to 
protect properly the consumer 
and to encourage efficiency. 

The next objective was to 
tackle the regional legacy arising 
from the mish- match econony. 
that unhappy legacy of wasted 
human resources, resulting from 
the policies of the 1960s and 
1 970s. 

Fourthly, the department 
sought to achieve a maximum 
economic impact from the 
United Kingdom's aggregate re- 
search and development spend 
in the light of rapidly changing 
markets. The department in- 
tended adding a second D to 
research and development 
namely design. 

The next objective was to 
change in order to improve the 
supply and quality of people 
available to industry and com- 
merce in a world of increasingly 
international markets. 

The final objective, he said, 
was to secure a broader im- 
plementation of the public 
purchasing initiatiwe. 

Mr Kenneth Carlisle (Lincoln. 
CL opening the debate, said 
some people argued that the 
British could earn their wealth 
in other ways. They gave the 
impression that the decline in 
manufacturing was inevitable 
and even tolerable and that 
services, for example, could plug 
the gap. They were sadly and 
badly wrong. 

Although Britain needed a 
balanced economy, manufac- 
turing was the engine of its 
prosperity and generated that 
essential spark which gave vital- 
ity to the rest of the economy. 

For manufacturing to nourish 
it was necessary to have a stable 
and healthy economy. Labour's 
extravagant plans fora spending 
binge offered no comfort. 

In Gennany the engineer was 
revered: here he had no particu- 
lar status. His pay was too low 
and that of the banker, whose 
very existence depended on 
him. was too high. 

Much depended on the qual- 
ity of education and the rele- 
vance of training. The UK faced 
a famine of people with the right 
skills. Its industries spent some 
0.15 per Cent of their sales 
turnover on adult training. 
Overseas the figure was often 
between 2 and 3 per cent. 

We have (he said) to ensure 
an adequate supply of maths 
and physics teachers. Schools 
must have strong and working 
links with local industry. In 
higher education we have to 
reinforce the recent trend to give 
hitter support to science and 

Industry must also shoulder 
its share of responsibility for 
training. There should be insis- 
tence that in their annual re- 
pons companies explained what 
they were doing about training. 

Management must . become 
more receptive, creative and 
professional. Human . relations 
in industry must become human 

□r there would be no relations 
and no industry. 

Mr Roy Jenkins (Glasgow. 
Hillhcad. SDP) said they al- 
ready had the largest service 
sector of any large developed 
economy in the world with the 
exception of the United States, 
but they were very far from 
being 'the second richest

industry was difficult to reverse. 
It was instructive, and a new 
thing, to look at the 1930s 
precedent. Unemployment at 
ihc beginning of that decade was 
at .about the present level, 
somewhat worse in reality for a 
short time, in relation to the size 
of the economy then. The

prospects of getting a job had 
rapidly become considerably 
greater than they were in the 
decade of the 1980s. 

The capacity of basic industry 
was not then permanently 
destroyed. . ‘ 

I have come increasingly to 
the view (he said) that this 
Government stands tack too 
much from industry. It does so 
more than docs any. other 
Government in the European 
Community, and more than the 
United States Government — 
more than the United States 
Government because of the vast 
United States defence involve- 
ment and certainly more, than 
the Japanese Government 

He was resolutely opposed to 
protectionism which dimin- 
ished the employment and 
wealth-creating capacity of the 
world as a whole, but he also 
believed that the totally arms 
length approach to relations 
between government and in- 
dustry was something which no 
other comparable Government 
contemplated to the extent Brit- 
ain did. 

Mr Cecil Parkinson (Hem mere, 
CL former Secretary of State for 
Trade and Industry, said that 
manufocturing would remain 
vitally important. What was 
sometimes put forward as a 
choice between Britain being a 
manufacturing or a service 
country was spurious. They 
needed to succeed in both. 

During the period 1980-81 the 
Government had never charged 
a rate of exchange or of interest 
which matched the rate of 
inflation. They had never had a 
real rate of interest paid to 
savers. The Government then 
had been elected on a sound

ment to put work where the

Mr David Knox (Staffordshire.

expansion of the most modern

and those out of work. The latter 
group, and the country, should 
be given hope with a thriving

import of coal from South 
Africa to Britain, especially as it 
would benefit the jobs of British 
miners. Mr Stanley Orme. 
Opposition spokesman on en- 
ergy. said the South African 
National Union of Mineworkers 
supported such a ban. 

Mr Peter Walker, Secretary of 
State for Energy, said that coal 
imports from South Africa had 
gone on under Labour Govern- 
ments when the South African 
regime had been just as intol- 
erant to black people as it was 

He added that Mr Scargill, 
leader of the NUM. was damag- 
ing the market for coal with his 
intemperate remarks. 

Mr Geoffrey Lofthouse 

(Pontefract and Castleford L) 
asked if it would not be a good 
response, now that the Foreign 
Secretary (Sir Geoffrey Howe) 
was not going to South Africa, to 
ban all imports of coal from 

The continuing import of coal 
was a kick in the teeth for the 
mining community and the 
miners themselves. 

Mr Walker said the Eurpean 
leaders had agreed upon an 
approach which, after three 
months, would include action 
on a number of materials 
including coal. 

Mr John Evans (St Helens 
North) asked why, as there were 
massive coal reserves and four 
million unemployed. there was a 
need to import coal from any- 
where, particularly from Po- 
land, where there was no free 
trade union movement, and 
South Africa, where there was 
no freedom.

The great tradition of a free

Richard Luce. Minister for tbe 
Arts, said during question time. 
He added that there was scope 
for libraries to ruse revenue in 
other ways, and he would 
encourage them to do that. 

Mr Christopher Murphy (Wel- 
wyn Hatfield C): Will you not 
agree that an opportunity might 
be given to libraries to charge for 
fiction loans so that extra re- 
sources can be used within the 
library service, in the same way 
that they charge for records 

already? (Labour protests) 

Mr Luce: I note that It is a 
legitimate point. Other coun- 
tries including New Zealand, 
make a distinction, but it is 
difficult to draw a distinction on 
educational grounds. It is best to 
maintain the tradition of a free 
lending service, bat there are a 
number of areas in which it is 
possible to charge.

Cable promise slow to dawn 

In the wake of the Peacock 
Report on the financing of 
the BBC. Bill Johnstone, 
Technology Correspon- 
dent, examines innova- 
tions which television will 
soon be able to exploit. In 
the second and final arti- 
cle he looks at the cable 

European cable television 
networks are poised for rapid 
expansion. They are destined 
to play a big part in the newest 
phase of television history as 
the primary means of carrying 
dozens of channels to Europe- 
an homes, dramatically chang- 
ing the nature of home 
entertainment in the next 

Homes, schools, hotels and 
colleges will be able to receive 
30 channels or more on multi- 
channel networks for the same 
monthly price as hiring a 
video recorder. At least those 
are the promises. 

Britain, once enthusiastic 
about the technology, has 
been slow to embrace iL The 
twentieth UK cable franchise 
has been awarded by the Cable 
Authority for multichannel 
networks but only seven are in 

operation. Now the supporters 
of cable are pushing for a 

revival, trying to attract gov- 
ernment support. 

The prospects for the indus- 
try were never brighter than 
four years ago when the 
Government, riding on the 
wave of high technology eu- 
phoria. promised approval for 
a quick expansion. Until then, 
cable had only been used to 
carry pictures to homes where 
reception was poor. 

But the abolition of capital 
allowances in a Budget created 
havoc. The British cable TV 
companies were forced to 
rethink the economics of their 
businesses and some aborted 
or postponed their plans. 

Under the new cable TV 
blueprint, 30 channels will be 
commonplace in each of the 
networks. Twenty will be an 
extension of existing program- 
ming while the remainder will 
comprise special ’’interactive” 
services, like armchair shop- 
ping. Cheap local telephone 
calls and data services are also 
to be featured. 

Undoubtedly cable will play 
a significant role in changing 
the British and European tele- 
vision industry. The cable 
networks will be the principal 
method of distributing satel- 
lite TV programmes. 

The first 24-hour, all Brit- 

ish, TV satellite channel — 
Superchannel — is due for 
launch in the autumn with 
programming provided by 
most of the I TV companies 
and the BBC.

Universities ‘must pay for refuse’ 

Local authorities sue folly 
entitled to chaise universities 
for removing refuse from their 
halls of residence, a High 
Court judge ruled yesterday. 

Mr Justice Macphereon 
held that refuse from halls of 
residence is not “house 
refuse” within the meaning of 
the Public Health Act. 1936

fy for free collection.

General Synod: debate on South Africa 

Overwhelming vote for 
effective economic 
sanctions by Britain 

for more 

A motion calling for effec- 
tive economic sanctions 

against South Africa was ear- 
ned by an overwhelming vote 
yesterday at the General Syn- 
od of the Church of England 
meeting at York. 

The Church’s objective of a 
simple, clear message was 
achieved easily, to much ac- 

The Archbishop of Canter- 
bury. Dr Robert Runcie, indi- 
cated immediately that he 
would convey its terms and 
message to Bishop Desmond 
Tutu, the Bishop of 

Bishop Tutu had sent mes- 
sages to the Archbishop and to 
the Bishop of Coventry, the Rt 
Rev Simon Barrington-Ward, 
who moved the motion and 
was chairman of the group 
that compiled the Church 
report Prisoners of Hope , 
which concluded that South 
Africa was moving daily into 
further repression. 

The Synod swept out all 
amendments in the interests 
of attempting unanimity, and 
carried the motion by 394 
votes to 21, with 12 absten- 

The motion read: “That this 
Synod, in the light of the 

By Alan Wood 

resolutions of July 1982 and of 
the serious deterioration in 
the South African situation 
since that time; 

(A) is convinced of the 
urgent need to establish as 
peacefully as possible 'a new 
South Africa’ which will be 
‘non- racial, democratic, par- 
ticipatory and just' (Bishop 
Desmond Tutu); 

(B) calls upon the Church by 
prayer and action to offer 
support to all who are at- 
tempting to bring this about; 

(C) urges HM Government, 
in the light of the failure of the 
mission of the Eminent 
Persons' Group to deploy 
effective, economic sanctions 
against South Africa; and 

(D) requests banking and 
financial institutions, trans- 
national corporations, and all 
bodies with significant links in 
South Africa, to take whatever 
steps are in their power, 
including acts of disengage- 
ment. to increase the pressure 
on that economy, and urges 
the Church's financial bodies 
to give a clear lead in this 

Amendments welcoming 
the proposed visit to South 
Africa of Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
the Foreign Secretary and 

President of the EEC Council 
of Foreign Ministers, were 
defeated or withdrawn be- 
cause of strong doubts that he 
would be able to see anyone 

Dr Runcie, during the de- 
bate, supported carefully tar- 
geted sanctions, and said that 
if Sir Geoffrey's mission 
failed. Britain should not fal- 
ter further in mustering what 
he described as massive inter- 
national support for imple- 
menting sanctions. 

Opposition to sanctions was 
muted. The Bishop of Bir- 
mingham, the Rt Rev Hugh 
Moniefiore, spoke of the limi- 
tations of such measures, and 
said that what made the Botha 
Government listen would be if 
the Rand crashed further than 
it had. 

There were criticisms of 
Church of England invest- 
ment that might help to prop 
up apartheid. Sir Douglas 
Lovelock, First Church Estate 
Commissioner and Chairman 
of the Church’s Central Board 
of Finance, said that only 
0.3 per cent of the total in- 
come of the commissioners 
came indirectly from South 

The Archbishop of Canterbury and (right) the Bishop of Coventey during the debate yesterday (Photographs: John Voos). 

Hope of progress fading, Bishop says 

Opening the debate on 
South Africa, the Bishop of 
Coventry, the Rt Rev Simon 
Barrington-Ward, said that 
Mr Nelson Mandela could 
still unite people across the 
length and breadth of Sc nth 
Africa bnt the chance for 
progress was fading day by 
day, the longer be was left In 

He said that be had spoken 
that morning to Bishop Des- 
mond Tutu, who told him: 

“We are moving daily further 
Into repression." 

The Rev Clarry Hendrickse, 
of Liverpool, who said that he 
was a South African by birth 
and classified (here as a Cape 
Coloured, believed that sanc- 
tions could break through the 
close system of secrecy and 
misinformation and be effec- 
tive in persuading the South 
. African Government -to ac- 
knowledge black leaders. 

Britain was duty bound to 

give a strong moral lead, he 
said. He believed South Africa 
did not take seriously Britain's 
claim that it abhorred apart- 

The Rev Graham Cray, of 
Clifton, York, said that those 
suffering most wanted sanc- 
tions. The argument that sanc- 
tions wonld hurt blacks most 
was white liberal argument 
that failed to grasp the depth 
of black rage. 

Sir William van 

Stranbenzee, Conservative 
MP for Wokingham, who is 
Second Church Estates Com- 
missioner, said it had to be 
remembered that apartheid 
was being carried on by devont 
Christians, and be had an 
uneasy feeling that when his- 
tory came to be written “our 
withdrawal from dialogue with 
the Dutch Reformed Church 
in much earlier days, may not 
be accounted to us in great 

The Archbishop of Canter- 
bun’, Dr Robert Runcie. said 
during the South Africa debate 
that the Church of the Prov- 
ince of South Africa had yet 
formally to speak about sanc- 
tions. as the Roman Catholic 
Episcopal Conference had 
done. It might do so in 

There were certainly mis- 
givings in both churches about 
taking such a line, and some 
outright opposition to it. but 
he believed that the mind of 
the Church in South Africa 
was such as to justify the terms 
of the motion before them. 

Each new wave of arrests, 
each new refusal to talk with 
Nelson Mandela diminished 
the influence of moderate 
.African leaders. 

In these circumstances, he 
supported the conclusion of 
the Eminent Persons* Group 
that the countries of the 
Commonwealth could now 
consider further actions 
against South Africa. He be- 
lieved that sharp economic 
measures or sanctions offered 
the only hope there was. 
however slender, of doing 
what they could in this coun- 
try to slop the blood shed . 

He still hoped that Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, the Foreign 
Secretary, with all the author- 
ity of the European Commu- 
nity behind him. might 
succeed where the Eminent 
Persons* Group had so far 

Strasbourg to rule 
on £600 m award 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 

A final ruling in the case 
brought by seven groups of 
shipbuilding and aerospace 
companies for £600 million 
compensation from the Gov- 
ernment will be made today 
by the European Court of 
Human Rights at Strasbourg. 

The case, which stems from 
the nationalization of the 
companies under the last La- 
bour Government, has proved 
the -most politically embar- 
rassing lor the Government. 

The Government attacked 
the compensation terms as- 
sessed by Labour as “grossly 
unfair" when in Opposition 
but since then has defended 
the sum paid before the 
European Commission of Hu- 
man Rights where t&.clpims 
were first argued. 

If the 19 judges of the 
European Court are true to 

precedent, they are likely to 
follow the ruling of the Euro- 
pean Commission, which has 
upheld already the 
Government's view that the 
compensation was not unfair. 

The ruling marks the end of 
a nine-year battle by compa- 
nies, including GEC and 
Vickers, which maintain that 
the £1 25 million they received 
from the Government on 
being nationalized was so 
inadequate and discrimina- 
tory that it violated the Euro- 
pean Convention on Human 

The Government has resist- 
ed claims for improved com- 
pensation brought by the 
shareholders of the shipbuild- 
ing and aircraft industries and 
claimed that the compensa- 
tion is outside the scope of the 




An attempt by a delegation 
from The 3ys Women’s Cam- 
paign for Soviet Jewry to hand 
in a petition, urging clemency 
for Mr Alexey Magarik, aged 
28. a Soviet dissident, failed at 
the Soviet Embassy in London 

The party, which included 
Mr Magarik’s father. Vladi- 
mir. Mr Tom Stoppard, the 
playwright, and Mrs Margaret 
RigaL co-chairman of the 
campaign, were turned away 
at the gate and the petition of 
thousands of signatures was 
not accepted. 

• Mr Magarik. who is mar- 
ried. with a son aged eight 
months, was tried on charges 
of possession of drugs in 
TbJisi, Georgia, in March inis 
year and sentenced to three 
years in a labour camp. Mr 
Vladimir maintains that the 
drugs were planted on his son. 

Mr Magarik. aged 53. said:

will work for there were many 
strange things about my son s

Court bans 
limits for 

A High Court judge yester- 
day banned housing authori- 
ties from offering accom- 
modation for a limited period 
to homeless persons with a 
priority need. 

Mr Justice McCowan said 
those with “priority need.” 
and not intentionally home- 
less. should be free of such 
limits threatening their se- 
curity. . . . . 

He quashed a decision ot 
the London Borough of Cam- 
den to offer Mr Jeremy Wait 
accommodation for a few 
months only. 

Mr Wail became homeless 
with “priority need", under 
the provision of Section Four 
of the Housing (Homeless 
Persons) Act. 1977. when fire 
destroyed his flat at Chamber- 
lain House. Somerstown. 
Camden, in May last year. 

The council decided he was 
only entitled to accommoda- 
tion for a limited period 
because Chamberlain House 
was a “short life” property due 
for demolition in a few 
months, when Mr Wait would 
have had to make alternative 
arrangmenis anyway.

Manila revolt starts to 
crumble after 24-hour 
ultimatum by Aquino 

From Keith Dalton!, Manila 

Military and political oppo- 
nents of President Aquino 
trying to form a breakaway 
government yesterday held 
initial talks to end a two-day 
occupation of a luxury Manila 

The occupation had threat- 
ened to split the military and 
damage the four-month-old 
Aquino Government. In the 
break-through discussions, be- 
gun hours after Mrs Aquino 
issued a 24-hour ultimatum 
for the siege to end. an 
agreement to resolve the crisis 
was reached. 

Opposition leaders and sup- 
porter of Mr Ferdinand Mar- 
cos. the deposed President, 
agreed to leave the five-star 
Manila Hotel early this 

A former assemblyman. Mr 
Salvador Briitanico. said he 
and other members of the 
opposition met Mrs Aquino. 
General Rafoel Ileto. the Dep- 
uty Defence Minister, and Mr 
Tcodoro Locsin. the Informa- 
tion Minister, for 2'£ hours 
laic yesterday to discuss solu- 
tions lo the stalemate. 

Separate negotiations will 
continue today between mili- 
larj officials and rebel soldiers 
on an amnesty from arrest for 
their occupation of the 
country's top hotel. 

Hundreds of opposition and 
government supporters were 

Honolulu — Ex-president Fer- 
dinand Marcos said at his 
rented beachfront home here 
yesterday that he had nothing 
to do with the attempted revolt 
in Manila, and blamed the 
Government of President 
Aquino for the situation (Reu- 
ter reports). 

“All I am asking my coun- 
trymen to do right now is to 
prevent bloodshed." he said at 
an impromptu news 

kept apart at the Army and 
Navy Club — where the talks 
look place — by several hun- 
dred troops backed by six 
armoured personnel carriers. 

The former Foreign Minis- 
ter. Mr Arturo Tolentino. set 
off the minor revolt on Sun- 
day when, with the support of 
several hundred heavily 
armed soldiers, he look an 
oath as acting President and 
established himself inside the 
hotel. Security was provided 
by the renegade troops, who 
used the building as the 
headquarters of their fiedgling 

"It was a propaganda gim- 
mick and a violation of law 
and it has failed." Mrs Aquino 
said at a press conference 
called to denounce this "act of 
disloyalty and defiance". 

“1 want to appeal to the 
people who have holed up in 

the hotel to end it and come 
out within 24 hours." Mrs 
Aquino, said. She added that 
no one had been hurt and that 
“an early and favourable re- 
sponse to this appeal will be 
taken greatly in their favour”. 

Military support for Mr 
Tolentino cracked just 12 
hours after he took his oath of

nearby military headquarters. 

‘They realized they had 
been misled." Brigadier-Gen- 
eral Emilio Teplo. Manila's 
deputy military commander, 
said later. 

He said the soldiers had 
been misled into believing 
that they were supporting a

Court veto 
for budget 
cuts law 

From Bailey Morris 

The United States Supreme 
Court yesterday struck down 
the key provisions of the 
balanced-budget law designed 
to reduce the soaring US 
deficits to zero by 1991. 

By a vote of seven to two, the 
High Court declared unconsti- 
tutional the provisions direct- 
ing Congress to make major 
automatic spending cuts when- 
ever deficits rise above speci- 
fied levels. 

The court ruled that the 
automatic “trigger" provision 
violated the Separation of 
Powers Act, which states that 
Congress and the Administra- 
tion have separate but equal 

The ruling put in doubt the 
ability of Congress to meet the 
difficult deficit-redaction goals 
outlined in the unprecedented 
legislation. It requires* across- 
the-board cuts in defence and 
domestic programmes to re- 
duce the $200 billion (about 
£127 billion) deficits to $144 
billion in fiscal 1987, $108 
billion in fiscal 1988, $72 
billion in fiscal 1989 and down 
to zero by 1991. 

To reach those targets, more 
than $34 billion in additional 
cots in domestic and defence 
programmes would have to be 
made by October, just before 
the mid-terra elections. The 
first round of cuts, totalling 
$11.7 billion last March, will 
remain in effect. 

The decision also raises the 
strong possibility of another 
protracted legal battle which 
could paralyze the deficit- 
reduction process further. 

Both Houses of Congress 
have passed budgets and 
agreed, in a special conference, 
on legislation that would meet 
the first-year targets, cutting 
the deficit to $144 billion in* 
the 1987 fiscal year which 
begins in October. 

In meeting that goal. Con- 
gress is now bound by a fall- 
back provision in the Gramm- 
Rudman-Hollings legislation. 
It is very similar to the 
traditional congressional pro- 
cess which has resulted in so 
many political stalemates. 

Under the fall-back provi- 
sion, the President's Office of 
Management and Budget and 
the Congressional Budget Of- 
fice will jointly take a 
“snapshot" of the US econo- 
my on or before August IS. If 
the deficit, now projected at 
more than $175 billion, is 
above the $154 billion leveL 
then the two agencies will 
produce a “sequester order". It 
will direct Congress to cut 
programmes by anywhere 
from 10 per cent to up to 20 per 
cent in some cases. 

Unlike the automatic “trig- 
ger", however, both Houses of 
Congress must then vote on 
the order and President Rea- 
gan most sign it into law.

Church-state clash in Argentina 

Divorce debate opens old wounds 

From A Correspondent, Buenos Aires 

A Congressional debate on 
divorce is soon to gel under 
way in Argentina, one of only 
a handful of countries wbere it 
is illegal. 

About six different propos- 
als have been introduced by 
MPSof several parties. Behind 
the debate are two important 
realities, one sociological, the 
other religious and political. 

The first is that, according 
to the 1980 census, there are 
about two million Argentines 
living in irregular family units, 
without the chance to remar- 
ry. The figure is widely regard- 
ed as an under-estimate. One 
MP puls it at more than four 
million, or more than 10 per 
cent of the population. 

Secondly, not only is Argen- 
tina a juridically Roman Cath- 
olic country in which, for 
example, only a Catholic can 
be President but the Church 
also has a long history of 

intervention in political life. 

Almost every civilian gov- 
ernment has come into con- 
flict with the Church in its 
efforts to liberalize marriage 
laws, education, or both. A 
divorce law is theoretically on 
the books, having been legis- 
lated by the Peronist Govern- 
ment in 1954. 

It contributed greatly to 
President Juan Domingo 
Peron's open conflict with the 
Church, which in turn played 
an important part in his 
overthrow in 1955. The in- 
coming military rulers sus- 
pended the divorce law. 

Although it has been denied 
by church authorities, there is 
a tacit agreement between the 
Church and the democratic 
Government of President 
Alfonsin. under which the 
Church would moderate its 
attack on divorce initiatives 
and the Government would 

not call a plebiscite on the 

Polls over the past four 
years indicate that between 66 
and 75 per cent of the popula- 
tion favour divorce 

However, on Saturday in 
the main square of Buenos 
Aires. 35.000 to 55,000 Catho- 
lics gathered for an ostensibly 
non-political demonstration 
in favour of the family. 

The rally was inspired by 
Mgr Emilio Ognenovich, the 
most outspoken critic of di- 
vorce within the conservative 
Catholic hierarchy. 

It was a peaceful gathering, 
in which secondary school- 
children predominated. They 
sang religious folk songs. The 
tranquility of the demonstra- 
tion contrasted sharply with 
heated exchanges in the past 
week between political and 
church figures. 

at Kremlin 

From Christopher Walker 

President Mitterrand of 
France yesterday held talks in 
the Kremlin with the Soviet 
leader. Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, at the beginning 
of a four-day official visit 
which has added international 
significance because it follows 
similar talks in New York last 
week with President Reagan. 

It is the second meeting 
between the Soviet and 
French leaders since Mr 
Gorbachov came to power in 
March 1985. indicating the 
importance the Kremlin 
places on the role of France. 

Although senior French of- 
ficials were at pains to deny 
that President Mitterrand was 
playing a role as go-between, 
his three sessions of private 
talks with Mr Gorbachov are 
expected to provide a strong 
pointer to the chances of the 
1 986 superpower summit go- 
ing ahead as originally agreed 
last November in Geneva. 

Both Soviet and French 
officials emphasized what 
they see as the special ties 
between Paris and Moscow 
and yesterday Pravda. the 
Communist Party newspaper, 
said that the Soviet Govern- 
ment hoped that the trip — 
repaying that made to Paris in 
October by the Gorbachovs - 
would help strengthen security 
in Europe. 

French sources said that, 
during the private meetings. 

Mr Gorbachov welcoming President Mitterrand in Moscow 
yesterday as the French leader began a four-day visit 
ly to repeat his earlier rejee- who remember his gesture jn 

•lion of Mr Gorbachov's offer 
to negotiate a separate nuclear 
arms deal with Paris and insist 
on the independence of the 
French nuclear force. 

But the sources said that the 
French leader was also likely 
to speak out during his trip in 
favour of prolonging the 1972 
Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty. 
Mr Gorbachov recently called 
on the US to adhere to the 
treaty without its six-month 
let-out clause for a period of 
1 5 years in return for conces- 
sions on nuclear arsenals. 

M Mitterrand's arrival, in

Ciudad Juarez 
Chihuahua, Mexico 

The ruling Institutional 
Revolutionary Party ^ 
yesterday declared itself tne 
outright winner of elections in 
the state of Chihuahua, on the 
United States border, as fur- 
ther details emerged of blatant 
electoral fraud. 

The elections - for gover- 
nor. mayors and congressional 
deputies — are seen as a test of 
the degree to which the Gov- 
ernment of President de la 
Madrid retains credibility, or 
foiling that control, at a time 
of acute economic crisis. 

As indignation grew yester- 
day at the perceived scale of 
the fraud, an estimated 2,000

The official result will not

took place on Sunday.

Evidence of fraud oh

by political parlies of the left

America’s weekend of celebrations 

Lady Liberty obscured by excesses 

From Christopher Thomas, Washington 

America returned to work 
yesterday after the narcissistic 
excesses of Liberty Weekend, 
most of which were tacky, 
trivialized, overdone and, sad- 
dest of all, nothing to do with 
the ideals enshrined by the 
Statue of Liberty. 

There were, however, some 
rare moments when the deeper 
spirit and meaning of the 
occasion seemed unsullied, 
such as a few weeks ago when 
a lone cameraman captured a 
worker high np on the scaf- 
folding giving the Lady a 
secret kiss. 

ABC Television, which paid 
$10 million (£6.25 milltOi^ for 

extravaganza and recouped a 
$16 million profit — was 
immensely pleased with the 

For the most part, tbe nation 
gorged itself on “The Battle 
Hymn of tbe Republic" and 
“America the Beautiful". The 
national anthem, “The Star 
Spangled Banner", was heard 
hut little save for endless 
repetitions of the opening 
lines, which are the only tales 
most people can manage be- 
cause of its impossible range. 

Commentators found it hard 
not to be cynical, or even 
downright vicious, when re- 

occasion as Lady Liberty's 
centenary. A writer for The 
Washington Post savagely ex- 
pressed thanks that America 
was free at last from Liberty 

It all ended, certainly, on a 
flat and anti-climactic note. 
The dosing ceremonies con- 
sisted of three hours of dreary 
entertainment at the Giants’ 
Stadium in New Jersey, com- 
plete, with 200 Elvis Presley 
look-alikes. . 

Liberty Weekend was patri- 
otic to excess. One . writer 
commented: “We already. felt, 
good about oarsdves before

ous when we start feeling jnsta

At around 10pm on Sunday 
a marching band appeared on 
the Add and played the most 
honest tune of the weekend: *

The Austrian Parliament’s

a ceremony this morning will 
be boycotted by some diplo-

Dr Waldheim, the former

over his activities as a

that Mr Lander could not

The news that the Malay-

Mr Brian Burke, the West

sad commentary on any social

Tan Sri Zakaria. the Malay-

he sympathized with the par-

said he hoped the hangings 
would not lead to a deteriora-

“Drug trafficking is a prob-

in Malaysia, and is regarded as 
the most serious security

Prime Minister, yesterday

heed the “awful message" 
contained in Malaysia's hang-

(Reuter reports). 

He said the executions 
should tell young New Zea- 
landers that drug dealing was 
not only intrinsically wrong, it 
was “near suicidal". 

Mr Lange's warning was 
apparently aimed at preparing 
the country for the possible 
conviction of two New Zea-

and her 1 9-yearold son, a wait- 
ing trial in Malaysia on heroin 
trafficking charges. 

Executions highlight 
dangers of dealing 

From M. G. G. Pillai, Koala Lumpur 

Until Kevin Barlow and 
Brian Chambers were hanged 
yesterday, most travellers, es- 
pecially Caucasians, had not 
realized the dangers of drug 
trafficking in Malaysia, which 
has now breached both of its 
taboos: the hanging of women 
and of whites. 

If anything, it can be expect- 
ed to be tougher on traffickers 
than in the pasL 

On the same day as the 
hangings, the Penang High 
Court sentenced to death a 69- 
year-old Malaysian grand- 
mother, reinforcing, the 
dangers of drug dealing.

Australian; Derrick Gregory,

Why is Malaysia so tough 
on drug traffickers? It has 
hanged 36 Malaysians, Thais 
and Singaporeans since 1975, 
when the mandatory death 
penalty was introduced. 

Seventy-four people are in 
death row, awaiting the result 
of appeals, but the world at

the situation until yesterday. 
In the past week two Malay-

From Robert Fisk 

Brigadier General Chari 
Kenaan head of Syrian mili- 
tary intelligence in Lebanon, 
yesterday delivered a harsh 
warning to the gmunen and 
rofli ti»v of West Beirut that, if 
they oppose Lebanese troops 
patrolling the city, they will be 
striking “directly against 

His implicit threat to nse 
force against opponents of 
Syria’s new “security" plan — 
made in a long interview with 
The Times as heavily-armed 
Syrian security agents stood 
outside his hotel room — was 
mainly directed at Mr Yassir 
Arafat and his PLO support- 
ers, whom the general blamed 
for the chaos in Lebanon. 

Two of three men arrested 
after an attempted car-bomb- 
ing at Beirut airport had 
admitted being “Arafat 
Palestinians’’, he said. 
"Arafat is the man who would 
really like to prevent a solution 
in Lebanon. From the begin- 
ning, be has been trying to 
create an explosion here." 

The general said 150 people 
had already been arrested in 
Beirut for carrying arms in 
contravention of Syria's secu- 
rity plan, and were now being 
held prisoner, in Lebanese 
Army barracks. 

General Kenaan is a small, 
dark-haired, confident man 
with a sharp sense of humour 
as well as a ruthless determi- 
nation that emerged from time 
to limp as he sal talking in his 
hotel room, a place of dark 
furnishings decorated with two 
bouquets of roses, a copy of a 
Gainsborough with a ballet 
hole through the middle and a 
sketch of President Assad 
grinning broadly from one 
corner of the suite. 

He had only “40 or 50" 
uniformed Syrian troops in 
West Beirut, be claimed, but 
they were sufficient to give the 
necessary moral support to the 
U00 Lebanese troops and 
paramilitary police on the 
streets. The general dearly 
expects to be taken seriously — 
and obeyed. 

"I said to the Lebanese 
Army officers — and today 1 
said the same to General 
Osman of the internal security 
force— f said to them: ‘Yon are 
going to have everything you 
need to maintain the law — but 
this is your country and yon 
must work for ft. We will 
support you — but this is your 
responsibility, not ours.’ 

“Now all the parties (mili- 
tias) have agreed to control 
their people and there will be 
no more arms carried in the 
streets . . . they will have to 
collect all their arms later. 
They will only be allowed to 
have one office each — for 
political affairs. The trouble- 
makers have to be faced. I told 
the Lebanese officers: ‘We are 
with you. All the Lebanese 
people are with yon. They will 
give you their support'." 

General Kenaan insisted

From milk round 
to gravy train 

III the carefree 1970s, many students 
felt that graduation was a magic 
ceremony opening the way to a host 
of employers offering glamorous jobs 
and clamouring to pay exotic sala- 
ries. Graduates now take a far more 
professional attitude towards finding 

Golden hellos and exploding offers 
are among the exotic mating cries 
with which employers lore Britain's 
new graduates on to their pay rolls 
each spring. The students take them 
seriously. Their nets are spread wide 
these days. They have long ago 
joined their college industrial societ- 
ies. attended presentations, booked 
their holiday courses, boned up on 
company records. 

High nnemploytnent is only part of 
the explanation. It is dear that 
students think aboet jobs much 
earlier than they used to. Indeed, 
most of (he large employers have 
already completed their recruiting 
for this year. 

This hunt for talent traditionally 
dabbed “the milk round" started as 
early as February. Some companies 
restricted their attentions to the 
“blue chip" universities such as 
Durham and Bristol while others 
were even more particular and visited 
only Oxford and Cambridge. The 
recruiting round has been a profit- 
able time for hotels, transformed into 
bazaars of video presentations and 
free cocktails for several weeks. 

The first interviews were mainly 
general chats, with the next stage a 
more rigorous second interview, usu- 
ally at rhe firm’s head office. During 
this time two days of management 
' games, verbal and numeracy tests 
and an introduction to the company 
may have included a trip to the firm’s 

Gilt-edged carrots have been dan- 
gled by some companies to attract the 
more talented students. One Ameri- 
can investment bank pays £1,000 
when an offer is accepted immediate- 
ly (a “golden hello"). With each 
week that passes since the original 
offer, the sum decreases as the 
candidate dithers (an “exploding 
offer"). But most students frown on

Job: Deloitte. Haskins & Sells 

Alexandra Hogg faced the hardest 
decision for any woman: a choice 
between suitors. Four of the biggest 
chartered accountancy firms - Price 
Waterhouse. Deloitte Haskins & 
Sells. Touche Ross and Coopers & 
Lybrand — offered places on their 
three-year training schemes, each 
with a starting salary of £8,000. after 
"milk round" interviews. She chose 

Ten per cent of graduates now 
embark on careers in accountancy. 
"Several of my friends have ended 
up with three or four job offers", she 
says. “It’s very obvious, as a 
prospective employee, that the big 
firms are fighting furiously to give 
the best impression. All offer much 
the same." 

The image of accountancy as dull 
is a myth, she says. “I’ll have a 
professional qualification that can 
take me anywhere. I’ve seen friends 
bored stiff after six months in 
merchant banking. leaving to train as 
accountants, eating their words in 
doing so." 

Alexandra's varied choice of de- 
gree subjects reflects her own open- 
mindedness about her career. Unlike 
many of her friends, she waited until

paying off one’s debt in the college 
bar. Bnt do companies really imagine 
we’d fall for such baits?" one student 

For the more opportunistic or 
extrovert, the milk round has plenty 
of perks. There’s the chance to «m 1»» 
contacts and to sample good food and 
wine. Tales of drinking Dorn 
Perignon all night in Mayfair are 
scarcely exaggerated. Students have 
been grateful for a chance to brash np 
on their interview technique before 
facing favoured employers. Fre- 
quency they have ended np with 
several offers. 

But many undergraduates have 
found the milk round n stressful 
experience. Job interviews had to be 
juggled around preparation for 
finals. One graduate described the 
process as “eight weeks of heU. Some 
interviewers are needlessly sadistic. 
You come oat feeling magged". 

Companies taking part in the 
in Ok round have been adopting a 
heavy American East Coast influ- 
ence, and include such catch-phrases 
as meritocracy, high, pressure, ana- 
lytical content and transferable 

For those graduating in 1986, the 
prospects of finding work are good. 
University graduates fare better than 
those from polytechnics, with Oxford 
and Cambridge still taking the 
highest proportioa of top jobs. Male 
arts graduates have been experienc- 
ing most difficulty, hut anyone with 
technical or numerate ability has 
been in demand. With graduate 
numbers falling and 30 per cent more 
firms wanting to reenrit this year, 
many students still have a wide 
choice of possibilities. 

The most popular areas for lop- 
calibre graduates have been the City, 
accountancy and information tech- 
nology. Industry has a better image 
than before, but still suffers acute 
shortages of applicants in some 
areas. And American investment 
banks have replaced British mer- 
chant banks for glamour, competi- 
tion and exorbitant salaries. 

Teaching is unpopular, while the 
Civil Service, once the Mecca of high 
intellect, has lost most of its charm. 
In 1985, only 55 Cambridge gradu- 
ates took Civil Service posts, the 
lowest figure for 10 years. 

Mr Bill Kirkman, secretary of 
Cambridge University Careers Ser- 
vice, blamed this decline on its Yes 
Minister image. “The continual deni- 
gration of tie Civil Service by its 
political masters has taken its toll on 
applicants", he said. “But there's 
also a wider range of intellectually 
demanding jobs available with better 
pay and prospects." 

For aU the success stories, howev- 
er, there are numerous sad cases 
whose applications are all rejected. 
The moral of the milk round, as one 
triumphant student put it, is that 
bragging pays dividends: “As 1 see it, 
there's no point being British about 
it Yon have to turn yourself into a 
high-class whore and peddle like 
ML Then everyone's after yon."

Textile students are making a better : 
show than their f ashion counterparts 
this year with folios bulging with' 
creative ideas, and it is Scotland that, . 
is showing the way for British design 

L ast week, five Scot- 
tish colleges staged a 
joint design show 
that should be a bea- 
con for other' art 
schools. Boldly-printed fab- 
rics. subtle weaves, ceramics, 

I jewellery, duvets and table 
napkins were all shown on a 
circular stage in front of an 
audience that included Prin- 
cess Anne and Malcolm 
Rifkind. Secretary of State for 

The idea was to show in 
London the wealth of design 
talent in Scotland. The show, 
sponsored by the Scottish 
Development Agency, suc- 
ceeded, as so few college 
shows do. in making d e s ign 
seem relevant, important and.

desirable to the whole of lift, 
rather than isolated in the 
fashionable wardrobe. 

“No one gives enough credit 
to what textiles do for a 
garment". Zandra Rhodes 
said as we watched printed 
table cloths shaken out on 
stage, patterned umbrellas 
twirl, and simple modern 
garments leap to fife in print 
The most classic men's suits 
were given a cutting edge of 
style in the tactile tweeds and 
richly-coloured weaves. 

Cut versus cloth is the great 
divide this^ummer. when the 
college fashion shows have 
been generally disappointing 
and the textile students excep- 
tionally strong. Or perhaps it 
is rather that the fashion 
students put all the focus on 
presenting and styling a hand- 
ful of garments, while the flat 
artists’ folios of their textile 
colleagues seem to bulge with 
creative imagination. 

Scotfree, the joint Scottish 
college show, was devised by 
Mike! Rosen, a fashion show 
presenter who taught for five 
years at Middlesex Polytech- 
nic and understands how to 
brief and encourage students. 
Working with Patricia Berry, 
of the Scottish Trade Centre; 
Rosen gave a time frame to 
the show. Each of the five 
colleges — at Glasgow, 
Galashiels. Aberdeen. Edin- 
burgh and Dundee — was 
given a time of day as a focus. 
Rosen was then able to show 
Glasgow's extraordinary 
printed felts or delicate devore 
fabrics alongside complimen- 
tary sculptures, primed tex- 
tiles on restaurant lunch tables 
and Dundee's imaginative 
prints climbing into bod. 

“We want to show how 
much talent there is in interior 
design and textiles, rather than 
just fashion", says Patricia 
Berry. who envisaged the 
show and worked on it for 
eight months. The Scottish 
T rade Centre is backing up the 
show from tomorrow with an 
exhibition of student work 
that manufactuers and com- 
mercial studios can study in 
detail. Many colleges hold 
similar displays, which are 

often more seriousand imfjor- 
tant than the end-of-tenn 
fashion show: 

Is the annual jamboree;of 
catwalk shows really neces- 
sary? The Royal College of Art - 
has turned its leavers* show 
into a gala fund-raisiilg event, 
even though many established : 
designers would be nervous of 
such a showbiz spotlight. In 
spite of the odd flashes: of 
colour and fun. and -capsule 
collections from Royal Col- 
lege graduates, no one. could, 
really fill the stage or bold the 
attention. The resulting feel- 
ing of disappointment .is un- 
fair and unfortunate : to a - 
college which prides rtself on- 
feeding fashion's voracious 
creative appetite. •• . 

The St Martin’s Collegeof 
Art show has become an^veat 
on the fashion calendar, with 
Jasper Conran and hat-maker

creative talent. .. Lydia 
Keraeny, the principal, whije 
accepting that the show 1 runs 
too long, says; that it is unfair 
to pre-select, as part, of: the 
final assessment is- On- the

If the purpose of the end-of-

am not sure that a : catwalk 
show necessarily spotlights thp 
most talented. Since the medi- 
um spells out the message, it ! 
must also favour fashion over 
textile students. „ . '

Sharp tailoring was the key to St Martin's 
show (Rebecca Tyrrel writes). Body- 
conscious suits, coats and dresses, inset 
with pleats or finished with fish tails, 
opened the graduate designs. There were 
rag dolls, gangsters, Dickensian doctors 
and flamenco dancers. Rifat Ozbek and 
Jean Paul Gaultier strongly influenced 
much of the students' work, but behind 
. the mardi gras atmosphere, well-cut 
clothes and strong shapes followed 
fashion's return to the body-conscious. 
Aaron Wilson's draped jersey dresses and

Since the Church and the co-ops

the disappointed champions of 
reform take malicious pleasure in 
notifying me of two develop-

open on the Sabbath, when others 
in the city would face prosecution 
for selling so much as a Bible. And 
in Derbyshire Ilkeston co-op is in 
court this morning charged with 
the illegal sale on Sundays of 
holidays by one of its travel 
bureaux. “We don't understand

yesterday. “We sold holidays on

mighty stroke, and the ball lodged 
firmly between the coals in a

you will be aware if you have been 
following this correspondence, 
there was nothing especially new

We were warned about Aids in the 
United Kingdom but have been 
too slow in mounting a pro- 
gramme of health education. We 
have allowed prejudice to rule 
over concern for public health. 

The first case of Aids in 
homosexual men was reported in 
San Francisco when the propor- 
tion of homosexual males infected 
by the virus had already reached 
between 20 and 25 per cent This 
was in 1982. At that time, in 
London, the virus had probably 
infected 4 per cent of homosexual 
men. Yet it was not until 1986 that 
a programme of health education 
was started. By then the virus had 
spread to well over 25 per cent and 
British cases of Aids had started. 

Not all of those infected develop 
Aids but we have to assume that 
those carrying the virus are infec- 
tious to others. A particular 
concern is that the virus may have 
infected between 25 and 100 times 
as many people as those who have 
gone to doctors and hospitals. 

In London the proportion of 
homosexuals attending depart- 
ments of genito-urinary medicine 
or clinics for sexually transmitted 
diseases who are infected with the 
virus has risen from 4 per cent in 
1982 to 35 per cent in 1985. In 
provincial departments it has 
doubled from 5 to 10 per cent 
between 1984 and 1985. 

Drug addicts have always con- 
stituted more of a problem in the 
United States than in Europe. This 
is changing. In 1985 surveys 

Michael Adler says it is far too 
late for British squeamishness 

showed that 76 per cent of addicts 
in Italy. 32 percent in Switzerland 
and 10 percent in the UK were in- 
fected with the virus and in one 
general practice in Edinburgh the 
figure was as high as 50 per cent 
Since both drug addicts and some 
homosexual men (about 10-15 per 
cent are bisexual) engage in 
heterosexual intercourse, the virus 
can spread to women and from 
them to babies. 

No cure or vaccine is available. 
The cost of looking after a patient 
from lime of diagnosis to death is 
considerable. In the United States, 
depending on the city, the cost 
ranges from S24.000 to S 140.000. 
In central London it is £6.700. 
Clearly, it not only makes' medical 
but also economic sense to pre- 
vent transmission of the virus. 

Health education is the corner- 
stone. Prevention rather than cure 
must be our watchword. So far the 
government has allocated £2.6 
million for health education. An 
extensive programme was de- 
signed. but only part of it — 
modified in language — has been 
put into effect. All we are seeing is 
inexplicit advertisements in news- 
papers. It is not enough. 

The campaign will have to use 
explicit terms. Advertisements 

will have to be placed on tele- 
vision and radio: material will 
have to be put through letterboxes. 
Why have the authorities not 
launched such a campaign? 

The answer is, bluntly, that sex 
(and worse, homosexual sex) and 
drug addiction are involved. 
These are issues that tear at the 
fabric of family life, so beloved of 
our present government But the 
problem is not recent Our society 
has always failed to provide good 
health education and. especially, 
publicity on sex and related 
matters such as contraception. 
This is particularly so with sex- 
ually transmitted diseases. 

.There is a moral dilemma: 
instruction on how to avoid, say; 
gonorrhea is tantamount to en- 
couraging indiscriminate fornica- 
tion. Aids has occurred 
predominantly in homosexual 
men. It has not only damaged that 
group's health and acceptance by 
the rest of the community, but it 
has tapped into society's natural 
homophobia. That has become an 
excuse for inertia. 

Cynics cannot be blamed for 
believing that had Aids arisen in 
heterosexuals and babies, society 
would have forced, and found 
politicians receptive to. a rapid 

response. As it is. our inertia w»JI 
mean that heterosexuals and ra- 
bies arc now truly at risk tnrougn 
transmission from infected bi- 
sexuals and drug addicts. 

Yet we have the infrastructure 
to produce a campaign- The 
Health Education Council exists 
for such a purpose. The Terrence 
Higgins Trust has done excellent 
work, by trying to educate homo- 
sexuals about the disease in an 
imaginative and direct manner. 
The two bodies should be allowed 
to work in tandem. 

Local initiatives should also 
encouraged and funded. Edura- 
tion should be directed towards 
male homosexuals and drag ad- 
dicts but also women who might 
be involved with a male bisexual 
and for whom vaginal intercourse 
might thus pose hazards. 

Direct language should be used, 
referring in colloquial terms to 
sexual techniques. The message 
has to be targeted and that means 
small-circulation papers and out- 
of-the-way magazines, notice- 
boards in clubs and hand-outs m 
pubs. The campaign must be 
taken out of the political arena and 
given to those with expertise. 

The squeamishness of poli- 
ticians is a barrier to action. How 
many more warnings do we need . 
The lime has come for humanitar- 
ian common sense to overcome 
prejudice and inertia.

Richard Long on why New Zealand has freed the two French agents 

Death ship: Dominique Prienr (top right) and Alain Mafart pleaded guilty to manslaughter after the attack on the Rainbow Warrior 


A year ago this Thursday, when 
two bombs ripped holes in the side 
of the Greenpeace protest ship 
Rainbow Warrior, sending it to 
the bottom of Auckland harbour, 
the reverberations spread around 
the world. 

Before long it emerged that the 
sinking, in which a man was 
killed, was the work of French 
saboteurs, acting on high orders to 
stop the ship from interfering with 
a French nuclear test. It was a 
crime that rocked the French 

After all the 

rhetoric, a 
vulnerable deal 


Bui now. on the eve of the 
anniversary, new reverberations 
threaten the New Zealand pre- 
mier. David Lange — because a 
deal has been struck to free a 
Frenchmen and woman jailed for 
their part in the highly emotional 

The two became dramatic sym- 
bols to New Zealanders. At least 
five agents from the French secret 
service, the DGSE and possibly as 
many as 15 look part in the 
sabotage operation. 

Some flew to New Zealand as 
tourists, such as Dominique 
Prieur and Capt Alain Mafart.

nuclear submarine. 

The French government at first

in the end when their guilt was 
proved, the French defence min- 
ister and the head of the secret 
service were dismissed. 

tion by the United Nations sec- 
retary-general, Javier Perez de 
Cuellar. Lange had to announce 
that Dominique Prieur and Alain 
Mafart are to be deported to the 
French atoll of Hao. north of the 
French nuclear testing site of 
Mururoa atoll. 

New Zealand justice 
was not for sale, the 
prime minister said 

The Turenge couple were 
picked up by police just two days 
after the sabotage. The Ouvea 
yachtsmen had sailed away, were 
tracked by police to Norfolk 
Island, north-east of New Zealand, 
but were released for lack of 
evidence. Samples taken from the 
yacht later showed evidence of 
explosives having been stored 
aboard, but by this time the yacht 
had disappeared — scuttled in 
mid-Pacific — and her crew had 

The New Zealand police had a 
trump card in Dominique Prieur 
and Alain Mafart. 

Last November they pleaded 
guilty in Auckland to charges of 
manslaughter and wilful damage 
to a ship and were each sentenced 
to 10 years' imprisonment 

The New Zealand public had 
reacted with incredulity and then 
with outrage as the drama un- 
folded. David Lange found it 
politically useful to fan the senti- 
ment. His government was — and 
still is — involved in a row with 
Washington over its refusal to 
admit nuclear-powered and 
nuclear-capable warships to New 
Zealand ports. 

Lange accused the French of 
indulging in state-sponsored ter- 
rorism. Their action, he said, 
showed the desperation of nuclear 
powers. He demanded an apology 
from then prime minister. Laurent 
Fabius, and President Mitterrand, 
suggesting approval for the opera- 
tion had come from the top. 

In the aftermath of the Affair 
Greenpeace, it was the French 
government that looked shaky. 
But last night it was Lange who 
looked uneasy. Following arbitra- 

Lange commented that their 
destination was “an exquisite 
irony that will not be lost on the 
French”, but his electorate may 
not be so amused. Political polls in 
New Zealand have been strongly 
opposed to the release of the 

Finally came a ban on 
lamb's brains, 
a delicacy in France 

And indeed Lange’s past rheto- 
ric has been studded with prom- 
ises to this effect The agents 
would not be released during the 
lifetime of his government he 
pledged on several occasions last 
year. New Zealand justice was not 
for sale, he said. There would be 
no deal with the French. 

The French made it clear they 
wanted their agents out They took 
the view that the agents were mere 
pawns in the exercise and were 
simply carrying out orders. To. 
satisfy public opinion in France, 
they must be released. 

The French government started 
a trade squeeze. First they can- 
celled contracts to supply New 
Zealand meat and potatoes to 
New Caledonia. Then there was a 


After the arbitration announce- 
ment. under which New Zealand 
is paid $7 million in compensa- 
tion. Lange all but admitted that 
his government had been forced 
into the deal because of the trade 

His government did not want 
martyrdom, he said. There had 
been a choice of “pig-headedly 
charging forward to compound the 
damage” or resolving differences 
with France 

He argued that there was noth- 
ing pleasant about (he atoll of 
Hao. which he said rose to a height 
of only four feet above sea level 
and was a sort of French military 
dump.But the New Zealand oppo- 
sition leader. Jim Bo/ger, sug- 
gested that the agents were going 
into retirement in a pleasant 
Pacific paradise in the company of 
family and friends. 

“Quite simply, they have been 
given de facto freedom.” he said. 
"Mr Lange said the agents were 
not for sale, but the seven million 
dollars seems to be the modern 
version of 12 pieces of silver.” 

Bolger said Lange had made a 
fool of himself, had gone back on 
his word and had exposed the 
country to international ridicule. 

These charges are going to be 
difficult for Lange to counter, 
considering his earlier rhetoric 
The spectacle of a cave-in to trade 
sanctions will also raise concern 
about the same thing happening in 
his row with the United States 
over nuclear ships 

Just get this the right way down 

As Parliament moves towards 
recess and the time when min- 
isters hope to God that nothing 
will happen in die next two 
months to call them lock from the 
Mediterranean, it is difficult to tell 
whether the sudden absence of 
new developments in the long 
Land Rover-Sikorsky-Guinness- 
Peat- Allied Biscuiis-Westland-Al- 
lied Technology-Argyll-Fiat- 
Uniied Distillers-Allied Lyons 
saga (a) threatens or strengthens 
Mrs Thatcher’ s position, (b) is due 
to a genuine stalemate or just an 
agreement by all parties not to 
muck up the two months and (c) 
makes any sense at all. 

Let us at least attempt (c). Many 
people are still under the im- 
pression that the crisis erupted 
only when Westland was suddenly 
aware that the European con- 
sortium producing the EH 1 0 1 . the 
first helicopter really able to fly 
upside-down for long periods 
(Fokker. Fiat and the German 
Blohm & Voss yard, for this was 
primarily a naval helicopter), 
might beat its model -with, it 
was said by Sir Michael 
HazeJdine. then Secretary for Air 

and Water, the aid of Libyan 
money channelled through Fiat. 

It is now known, however, that 
the Anglo-Irish consortium 
Guinness-Peat had. many months 
earlier, almost accidentally solved 
the prior problem of a drink that 
could be drunk upside-down by 
the pilots. 

It was already known from early 
Nasa experiments that while it is 
quite easy, after some practice, for 
a man to swallow food while 
upside-down (this can easily be 
proved on the wall-bars of an 
ordinary gymnasium), it is impos- 
sible to swallow drink. Quite apart 
from the feet that it runs up the 
nose and gets in the hair, liquid 
simply will not go down, or rather 
up. the throat 

Guinness-Peat was originally 
formed, of course, to develop a 
process for making blodge (the 
solid residue of roast barley left 
after the liquor obtained in the 
mash tuns has been taken oft) into 
3 combustible fuel almost in- 
distinguishable from peat, and 
much cheaper than coal, as well as 
giving off a smoke said to “make 
people happy”. 

At the end of her successful 
battle with Mr Scargill. Mrs 
Thatcher did not relish the idea of 
such a rival to the embattled but 
now streamlined coal industry, 
and when she learned how a 
scientist accidentally left in a 
centrifuge in an experiment had 
been able to drink the residual 
ssennuig. as the concentrated last 
bit of blodge-liquor was chris- 
tened, in any physical position, 
she had no difficulty whatever in 
persuading Sir John to continue 
this research to a brilliantly 
successful conclusion. 

Meanwhile, however, the wily 
old Henri Dassault (who died 
recently), head of A6rospatiaIe- 
Prix-Unic. had set up a German- 
[ tali an subsidiary, SLT (Sur La 
Tete). to develop a revolutionary 
upside-down helicopter, the 
NH90. in a top-secret factory in 
Spain to get round EDC regula- 
tions. and had sent his son-in-law. 
Baron Bic-Anonyme. to London 
where, with Sir Michael Cockney, 
chairman of Land-Rover- 
Sikorsky's British end. as inter- 
mediary. he conducted even more 
secret negotiations with Aigyll- 

Distillers. then very close to an 
upside-down drinkable whisky. 

Equally meanwhile United Bis- 
cuits. under its dynamic chairman 
Sir John Hazeldine. had been 
working, in a typically British 
makeshift laboratory then housed 
in a Nissen hut. on developing the 
already known Upside-Down 
Pineapple Pudding into a real

At the same time, or within a 
month or so. Adied-Lyons. under

Michael, launched its takeover bid 
for Allied Distillers with many 
full-page advertisements pointing 
out the obvious advantages of 
helicopter pilots, let alone space- 
men. remaining sober on their 
upside-down tea. 

During all this time. Sir Michael 
John, chairman of British Allied 
Upside-Down, has remained an 
enigmatic, silent figure in the 
background. Will he perhaps play 
the ultimate deciding role? We 
must wait two months, till he 
returns from his Mediterranean 
holiday, for the answer to that.

For two compelling reasons — 
the one commercial, the other 
personal — the Reagan Admin- 
istration. unlike most of its Euro- 
pean counterparts, has already 
understood this new balance of 
power.Tfae Pacific Basin has for 
some time contained the most 
human and natural resources of 
any comparable region. With its 
spectacular growth over the past 
25 years — in the 1960s GNP per 
person grew in the Asia-Pacific 
region by 50 per cent and in the 
1 970s by 70 per cent — the Pacific 
now carries more trade than the 
Atlantic. With North American 
exports to the Pacific area equal- 
ling those to Europe, it is difficult 
to refute the rising relative im- 
portance of the Pacific to the US. 

Most observers are aware of the 
firm friendship between Nakasone 
and Reagan, who together preside 
over two-thirds of the GNP of the 
seven summit nations. Bui the 
personal links between the present 
US administration's top leader- 
ship with the Pacific long preceded 
the carefully nurtured Reagan- 
Nakasone partnership, which has 
held firm despite some pressing 
trade and currency problems. 

Not only and most obviously is 
Reagan a Californian and a former 
Governor of that state — with aU 
that that implies in implanting a 
Pacific perspective — but all his

bers have Pacific experience. The

has not so much been declining, 
but standing -still. At the moment 
there is no inherent conflict of 
interest between the Atlantic and 
the Pacific allies of the US: 
However, from the vantage, point 
of the Pacific. Nato looks like the 
Maginot Line all over again,' to 
which Europeans wish to retreat 
economically, culturally. and mfli- 
tarily. Though. 25 per cen t of the 
EECs GDP is exported, only a 
meagre 10 per cent of its trade is 
conducted outside Europe, 
whereas in the early 1980s the five 
principal members of ASEAN 
conducted 34 per cent of their 
trade outside the Pacific. 

While there is no realistic 
prospect of the US precipitately 
abandon ingits European commii- 
ments, they could be increasingly 
neglected in the future — particu- 
larly if the,: Pacific offers a more 
welcoming politic 81 and comnier- 
cial environment

right lessons 

The press gave much, though 
unsustained, attention to the latest 
thoughts of the Employment Min- 
ister. Kenneth Darke, on the inner 
cities, in which he appeared to 
advocate using tax and rate- 
payers' money to bribe contractors 
to employ, not those they cur- 
rently find the best employees, but 
those he thinks they should em- 
ploy. In order to secure govern- 
ment money allocated to inner 
cities, it appears, firms should 
employ labour on criteria of 
location and race, favouring 
blacks and Asians. 

If this were indeed the 
minister's intention, and if these 
are the sticks and carrots to make 
such an intention effective, it, like 
the "contract compliance” 
mooted last year, is approaching 
positivediscrimmation. in favour 
of one and inevitably against 
another group based on race or 
address rather than job suitability. 

But Darke swiftly assured us 
that no sticks would be used. And 
indeed, at central government 
level — though one cannot be so 
confident about the employment 
antics of some local councils —the 
sticks do not (yet) exist. There 
would be no "blacklist” of firms 
wayward enough to use their own 
judgement in recruiting. Quite 
what he does intend, however, was 
not so dear. 

The press did not comment on 
the other part of the story, in 
which Darke was said to wish to 
“create a black middle class". He 
had recently been to America, 
seen one. liked it and would like to 
“create” one here. For once, this is 
a case where thinking — more 
accurately, wishful thinking — 
could have done with a dose of 
reading in economics and sodol- 
ogy. We will pass by the highly 
questionable idea of "middle 
dass” being used to describe 
widely differing individuals: if we 
must use any description at alL let 
it be middle classes. But note in 
passing the preposterous notion 
that social strata, rather than 
emerging from complex, dispersed 
and spontaneous actions and val- 
ues. can be invented to the 
convenience of politicians. 

Pause to consider the offensive 
ignorance of the extensive black 
and Asian middle classes that 
already exist They have got where 
they are through their latent, work 
and sacrifice in the face of 
considerable obstades — not least 
those erected by politicians and 
bureaucrats to deter people keen 
10 start small businesses. 

But most of all the American 
lesson needs to be taken in full: 
not just by gazing at Wack middfe 
classes, but by reading those social -■ 
scientists who explain their origin. 
The US has been through a series ' 
of policies ranging from "colour- 

blindness"— avoiding negative 
1 discrimination by : equality of 
opportunity — through require- 
ment that government contractors 
take "positive” steps such as 
advertising jobs in black maga- 
zines. to what amounts to quotas 
with contractors having to identify 
areas in which ^protected groups"’ 
(blacks, Hispanics, women, work- 
ers over 50, Vietnam veterans and 
religious minorities) are “under- 

The regulations refer to “goals” 
rather than quotas but given the 
competition for jobs they act as 
quotas, examples of positive 
discrimination — or, in the more 
illuminating American terminol- 
ogy. reverse discrimination.. The 
story is well told by Professor 
Kenneth Holland in his Reversing 
Racism: Lessons' from America. . 

The first American lesson is that 
the movement from, equal 
opportunity to quotas has been a 
muddled slide, rather than a clear 
division. Well-intentioned efforts 
easily end as reverse racism. The 
second lesson is that the expan- 
sion of the US black middle 
classes took place before, and not" 
in consequence of, reverse racist 

The third, hammered home by • 
black economists such as Profes- 
sors Thomas Sowell and Walter 
Williams, is that "positive 
discrimination" actually hurts 
black prospects. What arguments 
for it really say. “loud and dear”, 
in Sowell’s words, "is that blade 
people just don't have it, and that 
they will have to be given some- 
thing in order to have something. 
Black people who are already 
competent ... will be .under- 
mined as black becomes 
synonomous — in the minds . of 
black and white alike - with in- 
competence. and black achieve- 
ment becomes synonomous with 
chanty and payoffs.” 

Reverse discrimination en- 
courages blacks to indulge in 
political lobbying and welfare 
dependence. It lowers blades' self- 
image. which is far too low 
already, and undermines any 
chance of their crucial interest that 
the white majority should regard 
them as intellectual, moral and 
social equals. 

■ Bui- politicians can do some- 
thing for ethnic minorities. The 

minorities need equality., before 
the law. They need, even more 
tiwm at present, to have them- 
selves and their property pro- 
tected by the forces of law and 

■ Th j y J don I n ® ed ' they will be 
uttpeded by. politicaily-msfigaied 
preferential treatment. .That's the 
- lesson from America. Mr Darke.

Sfea he "«™duceci the Drug 

.Traffickihg Offences Bill. Th e 
Phrase then seemed pardon- 
; aWe hyperbole to describe a 
•.sharp increase in illicit drugs, 
notably cocaine and heroin. 
The fects were that the illegal 
movement of drugs was fast 
becoming an unwelcome nara- 
site on the body of freer trade 
and movement between the 

The bin — due to become 
law today - contained mea- 
sures for curbing the criminal 
sale of drugs at home. But the 
Government also pointed out 
that .it was meant to be part of 
- a diplomatic offensive. The 
Prime Minister had used inter- 
national gatherings in Bonn 
and Nassau to establish dip- 
lomatic machinery for control. 
Britain promised full par- 
ticipation in the conference in 
Vienna next year, called under 
United Nations auspices, to 
ratify a convention on control- 
ling the drags trade. 

The death since then of the 
daughter of a Cabinet minister 
can only have focussed public 
and political concern. The 
ministerial campaign has sev- 
eral sides, moral as well as 
legal, international as well as 
domestic. However fierce new 
. laws preventing trade in drags 
at home, no government can 
act independently of con- 
ditions of supply and thus of 
government action abroad. 

International commerce in 
heroin and kindred killers is 
not to a fixed pattern. Police 

measures in, say, Pakistan 
may be shifting die locus of 
supply elsewhere in Asia. One 
consuming nation, which is 
also a a supplying nation, is 
Malaysia. It is also a 
Commonwealth country with 
an educational system and 
judiciary heavily influenced by 
models implanted during the 
colonial period. It is, in short, 
a fit partner for collaboration 
against the drag irade. 

On Monday morning, the 
Malaysian authorities exe- 
cuted iwo Australians, one of 
whom had been bom in Great 
Britain. They were found 
guilty of breaking domestic 
law which forbids trade in 
heroin. The mandatory sen- 
tence for this offence is capital 
punishment. There is still a 
morbid fascination with hang- 
ing in Briiain, and ihe fate of 
the condemned men has at- 
tracted perhaps dispropor- 
tionate attention, even to the 
extent of a last minute appeals 
for clemency by the Prime 
Minister. That was probably a 
mistake. Her locus standi in 
the affair is at best marginal. 

The two men were con- 
victed of attempting to smug- 
gle a small amount of heroin 
out of Penang Airport. Note 
that their offence was to 
smuggle out of a Third World 
country enough toxic material 
to make the men a consid- 
erable profit in Australia, Brit- 
ain, the United States or 
Europe and, incidentally, to 
help an unknown number of 
eventual purchasers to poison 
themselves. Whatever else it 
was, it was not a trivial crime. 

Consideration of the case in 
this country, however, has 
been tainted by patronising 
implications about the quality 
of justice in Malaysia. No 
country can fully satisfy the 
standards of another in its 
legal conduct — which is why 
extradition is so fraught a 
business even between the 
friendliest of allies. But there 
comes a point when trust has 
to be extended in another 
country’s judges and detec- 
tives. The British Government 
wants the cooperation of Third 
World suppliers of heroin in 
programmes of drug eradica- 
tion and control; that embod- 
ies a large measure of mutual 

There may. in the prosecu- 
tion of Kevin Barlow and 
Brian Chambers, have been a 
desire on the part of the 
Malaysian authorities to dem- 
onstrate that their policy ap- 
pear even-handed between the 
races. That might elicit misgiv- 
ings about the severity of the 
sentence — the gallows for six 
ounces of heroin. Such misgiv- 
ings must be swallowed. The 
logic of the criminal code now 
in operation here, and ener- 
getically advertised by the 
politicians, is to identify deal- 
ers in hard drugs as accessories 
to murder, and to ensure that 
they be suitably punished. The 
same logic led in Malaysian 
conditions and after due pro- 
cess, to the gallows. A general, 
if recent, repugnance in Britain 
towards hanging should not 
mislead us into thinking that 
its imposition in this case was

The private inquiry set up by 
Haringey Council to report on 
the riots at the Broadwater 
Farm Estate in Tottenham has 
not revealed any significant 
new facts about the events 
preceding or during the vi- 
olence which erupted, or about 
the deeper-rooted social prob- 
lems of ethnic , ^minorities 
which underlay this and other 
similar outbreaks. What the 
inquiry has done is (in its own 
words) to “provide a channel 
for the grievances and com- 
plaints of the local commu^ 
nity, and to investigate a 
number of disputed issues”, 
and its report must be judged 
according to whether it is more 
likely to help or hinder mutual 
understanding between dif- 
ferent sections of the public, 
and between the ethnic 
communities and the police. It 
is unlikely to be helpful. 

. The inquiry was set. up by 
Haringey Council when the 
government declined to set up 
its own investigation. The 
Home Office had stated that it 
did not believe that a re-run of 
such an inquiry as Lord 
Scarman’s would “cast any 
new perspective on the 
situation” or that it would 
discover new solutions to ur- 
ban violence. That judgment 
has been vindicated by the 
report of the committee which, 
under the chairmanship of the 
Labour peer Lord Gifford QC, 
consisted of laymen and 
churchmen from the fields of 
race and community relations. 

The events of the Totten- 
ham riot are well-known. Dur- 
ing a police raid on her home. 

a black woman, Mrs Cynthia, 
Jarrett collapsed and died of a 
heart attack A riot of excep- 
tional violence broke out on 
the following evening and 
night in which PC Keith 
Blakelock was killed. Build- 
ings and motor vehicles were 
set on fire and the police were 
attacked with petrol bombs. 
The weapons used against the 
police were such as to give rise 
to the belief that preparations 
had been made for such an 

At the outset. Lord Gifford 
gave it as a reason for under- 
taking the inquiry that “people 
do not attack the forces of law 
out of mere wickedness or a 
sense of fun”. There are, 
however, those who out of 
wickedness and callousness, 
stand ready to exploit sup- 
posed and actual grievances 
for the sake of the violence 
from which they gain satisfac- 
tion, and the report gives no 
weight to this reality. Instead, 
the weight of its impact is in 
condemning the police for 
“oppressive and racist 
policing”. Lord Gifford ob- 
served yesterday that the trag- 
edy arose because of the 
“terrible state of the relation- 
ship between the police and 
the community” but the report 
certainly does not suggest that 
there is blame for that on both 

It is the police who are 
blamed for the foiled relation- 
ship with the community be- 
fore the tragedy. The riot itself 
is described as a 
“dash...between a group of 
youths who, along with many 

others, were full of sorrow and 
anger because a mother had 
died and because nothing 
effective was being done about 
her death; and a unit of police 
officers who were, with many 
others in reserve, heavily 
equipped, hostile to the people 
on the. estate, expecting trouble 
to start; and ready at a 
moment's notice to quell it 
with force." A more loaded 
and tendentious description of 
what happened would be hard 
to contrive. 

The tone of the report in 
respect of the police goes for to 
undermine interest in its not 
very original remedies for the 
future. They include a new 
training unit for police to learn 
about “racial awareness”, gov- 
ernment grants and a jobs plan 
for Hanngey, new council 
housing and education policies 
to combat racism, more black 
teachers and more multi-cul- 
tural lessons in schools. 

But most significant is that 
the report should repeat the 
demand of the Labour left for 
an elected authority to run the 
police — in other words, for a 
politically-run police force — 
and should advocate what it 
calls co-operative policing 
with the organisations “which 
represent the community on 
Broadwater Farm.” Who in 
practice would ran such agen- 
cies is not hard to imagine. 
This report is both partial and 
political. It will not help the 
people of Tottenham, nor the 
cause of good relations be- 
tween the public and the police 
it affects to value.

Sunday’s minor coup at- 
tempt illustrates, second, the 
continuing appeal of Ferdi- 
nand Marcos. Whether or not 
he had any part in Tolentino’s 
action (and he has denied 
that), the regular appeals he 
has transmitted to his country- 
men from exile have clearly 
not gone unheeded. He has 
kept a finger on the pulse of his 
homeland. Moreoever. how- 
ever corrupt and however 
weak his rule in its latter 
stages, he was seen as a strong 
leader made even stronger by 
US backing. And strength is 
expected of a leader. 

Though it is still early days, 
president Aquino has not been 
able to give the same im- 
pression. She has sometimes 
appeared al odds wilh ihe 
military. There has been talk - 
perhaps malicious, but talk 
nonetheless -of her being a 
mere puppet of those around 
her. She has not. despite 
protestations to the contrary 
bv both sides, been able to 
attract the unqualified con- 
fidence of the United States 
once enjoyed by Marcos. 

Nor has she helped her own 
cause by speaking so msis- 
tenilv of compromise - com- 
promise In particular with the 
counirv's communist msur- 
eems. Perhaps by accident. 

coup attempt came shortly 
after the government had an- 
nounced ihe start of talks with 
the communists at an un- 
disclosed location. 

Mrs Aquino’s suspension of 
parliament while a new 
constitution is drafted and her 
replacement of a number of 
elected officials have also laid 
her open to accusations of 
arbitrariness and rule by fiat 
The potentially damaging na- 
ture of these charges is shown 
by the fact that they were used 
by Tolentino during his few 
hours in the limelight. 

For the time being. Mrs 
Aquino’s government appears 
to be secure. This weekend 
there was insufficient support 
for the restoration of Marcos 
to make Tolentino’s rebellion 
a serious threat; The open 
show of defiance suggests, 
however, that the sooner Mrs 
Aquino 'can regularize her 
position by adopting a new 
constitution, the better it will 
be for her. Until then, she 
would be well advised to take 
the most elementary precau- 
tion of all: to ensure that either 
she or her Vice-President.

whether abroad or in far-flung

Unfair slice off wage packets . 

From the Director of ihe National Advice Bureaux that there is a 

.Association of Citizens Advice 

Sir. The Citizens Advice Bureaux 
service has two urgent concerns 
about the Wages Bill which is now 
before the House of Lords. 

First that employees win no 
longer have ihe right 10 be paid in 
cash, and may have a bank 
account nominated by the em- 
ployer. We feel ii is unfair that the 
Government is willing to issue 
over 4.000.000 Giro cheques to 
social security claimants but is 
unwilling to ensure that employ- 
ees have the same easy access to 
their pay from employers. 

Second, that although it is 
proposed to limit the deductions 
an employer may make for stock 
and till deficiencies up to 10 per 
cent of the wage, this limit will not 
apply to a worker's final wage 
packet. We would welcome the 10 
per cent limit on deductions, as a 
step in the right direction to 
protect low paid employees, if it 
also applied to the final wage 

It is our experience in Citizens 

significant minority of un- 
scrupulous employers who evade 
the protection Parliament has 
already-given to employees against 
unfair deductions; indeed such 
deductions sometimes amount to 
the whole of the wage packet. 

We fear that unless the 10 per 
cent limit also applies to the final 
wage packet it will be these 
employers who will make frequent 
dismissals so that they can make 
regular large deductions for un- 
proven losses. The small measures 
that we advocate would bring 
considerable benefit to employees, 
no detriment to honest employers 
and would not undermine the 
intentions of the Bill. 

We hope that the Government 
will lake the remaining opportu- 
nities before them to include them 
in the Bill 
Yours faithfully.

YTS and A levels 

From Mr Brian Morgan 
Sir. Is it possible that a regrettable 
anti-Youih Training Scheme bias 
has coloured interpretation of the 
report of the Commons Select 
Committee on Education and 
Science? Assertion that growth of 
acceptance of YTS may be at the 
expense of A-level uptake, and the 
implication that this would be a 
bad thing are not justified statis- 
tically, qualitatively, or prac- 

Statistically, Sir, the figures 
show that during the period of 
most rapid growth of YTS (1979- 
82) A-level uptake also grew. 
Furthermore, since then the 
proportion of 16-year-olds choos- 
ing YTS has grown from 13 per 
cent to 25.8 per cent, while Alevel 
has only marginally declined, 
from its peak of 20.5 per cent to 
19.2 percent 

Taking the whole period under 
review, YTS grew from 5.1 per 
cent to 25.8 per cent while A-level 
started at 19.4 per cent peaked at 
20.5 percent and ended at 19.2 per 
cent. This hardly supports your 
Education Correspondent's state- 

ment {July 2) that "‘the figures 
show a sudden fall-off in the 
proportion of A-level students as 
the scheme expanded”. 

Qualitatively, is it not possible 
that even if the 0.2 per cent fewer 
students of A-level have all with- 
out exception moved to YTS, this 
may be no bad thing? A student- 
centred widening of flexibility of 
choice is not only sound educa- 
tional philosophy but also sound 
marketing. If 16-year-olds are 
showing a small shift from aca- 
demic study to work-place train- 
ing. are they not doing just what 
Industry Year is asking them to 

Practically, YTS would appear 
to be more in touch with the needs 
of 16-year-otds than the providers 
of A-level studies. As a con- 
sequence. A-level studies have 
stagnated while YTS has been 
growing fasL That finding is 
neither new nor bad.

Drink-driving case 

From the Secretary of the British 
Medical .Association 
Sir, The so-called “breathalyser'’ 
Act was stated by the Minister of 
Transport to be based on the 
BMA's report The Drinking 
Driver. Thai report advised 
strongly against courts permitting 
any “back calculation" being al- 
lowed for purposes of determining 
how much higher the blood al- 
cohol concentration must have 
been at the material time, and it 
was for that reason that the Act 
provided that the concentration 
given to the court should be based 
on analysis of the sample at the 
lime it was taken. 

We were, of course, aware of the 
practice being allowed in certain 
European countries, where geo- 
graphical conditions could lead to 
a considerable delay before the 
driver could be taken to a police 
station. However, it appears that 
the recent case (report. June 27) 
arose out of an accident which 
occurred in the middle of Bir- 
mingham and it is difficult to see 
how it was impossible for ihe 
police to obtain a specimen of 
blood, breath or urine until four 
hours and 20 minutes after the 
accident took place. 

Acceptance by the driving 

population of an offence based 
entirely upon chemical analysis of 
breath or of body fluids must 
depend upon the integrity of the 
scientific evidence. As has been 
pointed out by Dr Tabemer (July 
l). the rales of elimination of 
alcohol from the body vary not 
only as between different individ- 
uals; but in the same individual at 
different times. Furthermore, the 
reduction occurs in a series of 
peaks and troughs which only add 
to the problems of attempting 
back calculation. 

If such an estimation was ever 
to be accepted scientifically, it 
certainly should not be based on a 
single sample, as in the case 
reported, but on a series of 
samples taken over a period of 

Those responsible for law 
enforcement would be better ad- 
vised to step up ihe level of breath 
testing and to concentrate on 
those places where drinking driv- 
ers are mosL likely lo be found, or 
where alcohol related accidents 
are known to take place.

Occupational hazard. 

From Dr Conrad Dixon 
Sir, The Times Diary (July 3) 
referred to the Tottenham police 
cricket team as the fuzz, and thus 
highlighted the burning issue of 
equal treatment for pejorative 
occupational nicknames. 

Some come readily to mind — 
hacks and quacks, for example, 
need no explanation, while sniv- 
els, for Civil Servants, is gaining 
ground. Would readers care to add 
to the list so that every occupation 
may, in future, receive an honour- 
able mention?

Cheats who prosper 

From Mr R. /. Barycz 
Sir. With reference to Mr Gordon

think of an even simpler method 
of encouraging fair play in a game

deem the winner of any game the 
side in whose half of the pitch the 
ball has spent the shortest lime, no 
matter what the goals scored. 

Not only would this discourage 
foul play, it would also provoke 
actual play by putting an effective 
stop to time-wasting tactics that 
do nothing but provoke the spec- 
tators into verbal and actual

From Mr Frederick O. Marsh 
Sir. Perhaps our seafaring friends 
ought to follow the example set by 
us aviators. Since 1905. when the 
world aireporiing organisation 
called the Federation 
Aeronautique Internationale was 
founded, it has controlled and 
certificated all successful record 
attempts covering aeronautical 
vehicles from balloons, right 
through powered aircraft; to man- 
powered flight and spacecraft. 

Our records include speed over 
recognised courses, point-to-point 
and many others for ihe different 
types of aircraft. They are based 
on a formula related to weight and 
power plant and cover sponing 
and recreational aeroplanes as 
well as commercial and military 

Perhaps Mr Richard Branson 
and other wet bobs, worldwide, 
should tfow consider whether this 
is an appropriate time to form a 
similar oroganisaiion and estab- 
lish regulations. 1 would be happy 
to prov ide assistance.

Spoiled case for 
animal care 

From the Chairman of {he RSPCA 
Sir. It was heartening to read 
Bernard Levin’s tribute to the 
work of ihe RSPCA in his article. 
“The animal lovers lusting for 
blood”, in today’s Times (July 3). 

What is not often appreciated is 
that it is reputable organisations 
like the RSPCA that feel .the 
backlash against extremists who 
make bombing and murder 
threats in the name of animal 
rights. The society feels it where it 
really hurts — in the purse. 

As a charity the RSPCA de- 
pends on public support to finance 
the fight against cruelty to ani- 
mals. The need has never been 
greater. This year we had the sad 
task of reporting the highest 
number of cruelty cases ever. The 
danger is that in the public 
revulsion against fanaticism all 
organisations working for animals 
get tarred with ihe same brush. 

The RSPCA abhors the actions 
of extremists whose illegal attacks 
on people and property bring no 
relief to the animals they purport 
to help. On the contrary these 
attacks alienate animals’ potential 

As the newly elected chairman 
of the RSPCA’s governing body I 
can assure supporters that the 
society will not relent in its battle 
to prevent cruelty and promote 
kindness to animals. I can equally 
assure them it will be a . battle 
fought within the law and without

Heads, they win 

From Mrs Jean Potter 
Sir, An illustration of the new 
Tongan two pa’anga coin under 
the heading “The difference a new 
head of state can make" (Focus, 
June 23) and the comment that 
“countries regarded as the best 
potential export markets are . . . 
those which change their head of 
state frequently, necessitating a 
change in the ruler s portrait on 
the obverse of the coinage" was an 
unfortunate and misleading 

King Taufa’ahau Tupou IV has 
been monarch of the kingdom of 
Tonga since the death of his 
mother. Queen Salote. in 1965, 
and she reigned for 47 years. 

The new coin is of interest in 
that, currently, only seniti (100 
seniti = I pa'anga) are available as 
coins, and pa'anga in denomina- 
tions of one. two, five, 10. 20 etc, 
are in note form. 

One disadvantage of the new 
coins is that, -unlike the paper 
money, they will not be able to be 
“stuck" on to the coconut-oiled 
legs, shoulders and arms of tra- 
ditional dancers, according to the 
custom at fund-raising events. But 
this, presumably, is one of the 
consequences of inflation, now 
running at about S per cent in 
Tonga, and the higher denomina- 
tion notes will come into their 
own on such occasions. 

Yours faithfully.

Stand-in teachers 

Front Mr David H 'ardiil 
Sir. if is certainly true that the 
problem of stand-in teachers has 
reached absurd proportions in 
secondary education, as outlined 
by Michael Marland (feature, June 
30). In particular, with the many 
new initiatives in education, in- 
service training has increased 

In one nearby local education 
authority, for example, the heads 
of mathematics in most of the 
secondary schools were sent for 
training on 10 consecutive Mon- 
days in the weeks preceding the O 
and A-level exams. In many 
schools this reduced the teaching 
available to final-year examina- 
tion pupils by between 25 per cent 
and 40 per cent. 

Sadly, as this sort of situation is 
encouraged and funded by Gov- 
ernment departments such as the 
Department of Education and 
Science and the Manpower Ser- 
vices Commission, and shame- 
facedly accepted by LEAs 
desperate for money, then 
Marland’s thesis. “Common sense 
in short supply", seems most 

However, his solution is wrong. 
Instead of trying to improve the 
quality or quantity of available 
supply cover, we should wonder 
why such training has to take place 
during lesson lime at all. 

Why not do the training after 4 
pm, when the pupils have been 
taught properly, by the right 
person? If need be. pay the teacher 
the money- which ha $ been 
“Saved" by not employing a 
difficult-to : obtain, inappro- 
priatelv qualified baby-sitter. 

After all. teacher will have done 
his own supply cover. And very 
well, too. 

Yours faithfully.

JULY 8 1924 

The Channel Tunnel BUI was read 
for the second time in the 
Commons on June 5 1986. thus 
bringing to the point of realization 
a project first mooted over 180 
years ago: in that period there 
have been at least a dozen 
proposals and tuiq aborted starts. 
At the 75th annual meeting of the 
Channel Tunnel Co in 1955 the 
chairman told the only four 
shareholders present that the 
Government hail ceased to regard 
the tunnel as a danger to the 
country's defences; "objections," 
he added, "were now of an 
economic nature ' ’. 



MR. MACDONALD, replying 
to Sir W. Bull (Hammersmith, U.) 
and Viscount Curzon (Battersea. 
S., U.). said:- The Government 
have had under consideration ibe 
question of the Channel Tunnel, 
which was brought to their notice 
by the members of the House of 
Commons Channel Tunnel Com- 
mittee. In a memorandum with 
which the Committee were good 
enough to furnish me, it is stated 
that virtually 400 members of this 
House have now declared their 
intention to support the scheme. 
Some members attached the condi- 
tion, to which the House of 
Commons Channel Tunnel Com- 
mittee assented, that the approval 
of the naval and military authori- 
ties and of the Committee of 
Imperial Defence should first be 
given, and the Committee gave me 
to understand that the promoters 
would, in the absence of such 
approval, be unwilling to launch 
the project . . . 

1 think that most of those 
present, like myself, had ap- 
proached the subject with a certain 
predisposition in favour of the 
Channel Tunnel. When the evi- 
dence came to be discussed, howev- 
er. it was found that everyone had 
been forced to an opposite conclu- 
sion. The advice of the Staffs of the 
Admiralty, War Office, and Air 
Ministry was against the 
project . . . 

From the point of view of 
security, the Committee of Imperi- 
al Defence do not wish to overstate 
the risk, but they are advised, as 
their predecessors were advised, 
that there is unquestionably an 
element of danger involved. While 
naval and military opinion in the 
past has differed considerably as to 
the extent of this danger, there 
appears no room for doubt that the 
existence of a tunnel would be 
bound lo add something to the 
anxieties of those responsible for 
national defence, to our commit* 
ments, and to our expenditure, 
And. as pointed out by Sir Henry 
Campbell-Bannerman in a state 
ment on the subject in this House 
in 1907: 

"Even supposing the military 
dangers involved were to be amply 
guarded against, there would exist 
throughout the country a feeling of, 
insecurity which might lead to a 
constant demand for increased 
expenditure, naval and military, 
and a continued risk of unrest and 
possibly alarm, which, however 
unfounded, would be most injuri- 
ous in its effect whether political 
or commercial." . . . 

Having examined the defence 
aspects of the question, the Com- 
mittee turned to its civil aspects in 
order to ascertain whether there 
were overriding advantages which 
would just ify them in advising that 
the military risks involved should 
be run. The Committee were 
informed that the construction of; 
the Channel Tunnel would have 
but little effect on the foreign trade 
of this country. The question of 
passenger traffic is alone impor- 
tant. and by it the Channel Tunnel 
scheme as a commercial enterprise 
must stand or fall. If, however, the 
TunneL when completed, succeed- 
ed in attracting passenger traffic to 
the extent which its promoters 
hope for, one result would be the 
gradual disappearance of the cross- 
Channel steamship services. 

As regards relief to unemploy- 
ment, the Parliamentary Commit- 
tee estimate that on the Tunnel 
itself about 2,500 men would find 
employment on the English side, 
and an equal number on the French 
side of the Channel. There would, 
in addition, be consequential em- 
ployment elsewhere, and one of the 
estimates in the memorandum of 
the Channel Tunnel Committee 
was for an overall figure of 12.000 
workers in Great Britain and 
12.000 in France. 

The Committee of Imperial De- 
fence were unanimous that the 
advantages of the Channel Tunnel 
were not commensurate wilh the 
disadvantages from a defence point 
of view. Further, they look the 
view that all that has happened in 
the last five years in the way ofj 
naval, military, and air develop- 
ment has tended, without excep- 
tion. to render the Channel Tunnel 
a mure dangerous experiment ■ . . 

Any questions? 

From Pmfessor H. H. Huxley 
Sir, As one who has been learning 
Latin and Greek for nearly 60 
years 1 have much sympathy for 
the baffled Wykehamists (Jufv 1), 
"Examinations," said Charles 
Colton, "are formidable even to 
the best prepared, for the greatest 
fool may ask more than the wisest 
man can answer.” 

I have tried always to keep 
before me Hazlitt’s cautionary 
words: “Anyone who has passed 
through the regular gradations of a 
classical education, and is not 
made a fool by it, may consider 
himself as having had a very 
narrow escape." 

Yours sincerelv.

The on-air 

push for 

Phase II 


It's action time again for 
training. The publication last 
week of the new Education 
■and Training White Paper 
showed that there is neither 
let-up nor disillusion in the 
Government’s drive to mod- 
ernize the nation’s system of 
vocational training. 

Today at the National Edu- 
cation and Training Confer- 
ence in Birmingham there will 
"be a chance for Lord Young, 
the Secretary of Slate for 
Employment, and lan John- 
.ston, chief executive of the 
Manpower Services 
Commission’s training divi- 
sion. to spell out in some 
detail the implications of the 
new measures. 

, For Lord Young at least it 
■will make a change from 
tripping out the old exhorta- 
tions for better training and 
more of it. By now anyone 
with even the slightest interest 
in the subject knows that you 
need to invest in training for 
belter profitability — and that 
the Germans, the Japanese 
and the Americans do much 
more of it than we do. And. 
above all. that our deep indif- 
ference to developing Britain’s 
“human resources” needs to 
be shaken. 

So it will come as a relief to 
both Lord Young and his 
audience that there is some- 
thing fresh to talk abouL Both 
he and Mr Johnston will be 
able to claim that we are 
entering a new phase in the 
upgrading of training, and that 
after years of working at it the 
Government is getting to the 
point where it has done as 
much as it can do. The rest is 
up to us. 

~ Perhaps most important of 
jail the Government has ac- 
"cepted the recommendations 
.of Oscar de Ville’s Review of 
■Vocational Qualifications and 
a comprehensive, but simple 

structure of vocational qualifi- 
cations should soon be with 
us. In addition, the Technical 
and Vocational Education Ini- 
tiative is to be put on a 
national basis. A “college of 
the air” now looks certain and 
funding for the Open Tech is 
to be extended. 

College of the Air will be a 

joint BBC and IBA training 
venture for broadcasting MSC 
and Open Tech programmes 
for people over the age of 1 6, 
on radio and television, on 
similar lines to the Open 

All of this is evidence that 
the Government remains seri- 
ous about improving our 
training performance by creat- 
ing the structures which make 
it possible. It is not an issue 
which has been played with 
for a few years and then 


• High standards of training are statutory -in 
hazar dous industries such as power engiriming bet. 
are not so well recognized in some more down-to-earth J 
sectors. Lord- Young (above)* Secretary of Stoterfor . 
Employment, is heading the drive to mddemfcto the- 
UK’s vocational training system; and ^_totinee

upgrading technical equip- 
ment. But TVEI was intended 
to bring about a change in 
orientation in the curriculum, 
and to make education more 
“relevant”. Attitudes, rather 
than mere cash, were what 

Full details of a College of the Air are 
expected at the sixth annual Education 
and Training conference and exhibition 
which opens today at the NEC, Birmingham 

But there is a “down” side 
to these developments. The 
reason funding for the Open 
Tech has been extended, for 
example, is because industry 
has not responded fast enough 
to what “open learning” can 

When the Open Tech was 
launched it was intended that, 
after initial pump-priming, 
projects would become self- 
funding. Generally speaking 
that has not happened MSC 
money is needed to keep them 

Similarly, the extension of 
TVEI is worthwhile and the 
money going into schools will 
be welcomed as a way of 

So far it is hard to see 
whether traditional attitudes 
in schools have changed 
much. The anti-industry, pris- 
tine academic lobby seems to 
be as powerful as ever. 

Meanwhile, at a deeper 
level, there lurks the issue of 
the ”non statutory training 
organizations” set up after the 
slaughter of most of the 
industrial training boards. 
Here was a chance for industry 
to free itself from the shackles 
of training quangos, to orga- 
nize and police itself and to get 
more from its money. 

But has it happened? All the 
evidence suggests that the 
Department .of Employment . 

and the MSC are starting to 
lose patience with the NSTOs. 
Pledges freely made have not 
been kepL 

It is rumoured that many 
NSTOs. rather than providing 
better and cheaper training, 
have become mere token op- 
erations which distribute in- 
formation but do little else. 
They are certainly not the 
powerhouses of relevance and 
expertise which they were 
supposed to be. 

They will probably be given 
a period of grace to start 
delivering on their promises — 
but over the horizon there is 
appearing once more the pos- 
sibility of statutory 

So whatever the Govern- 
ment and MSC may do ad- 
ministratively and 

structurally, the most decisive 
battle still remains to be won 
in toe attitudes and priorities 
of managers, teachers, par- 
ents. and workers. 

As the phone-in response to 
Granada TVs Jobwotch pro- 
grammes are revealing, thou- 
sands of people are crying out 
for help and information on 
training. If toe country is 
serious about developing its 
human talent there is no 
longer any excuse fortuming a 
blind eye to the problem.

Unanimous decision to update 

“Continuing Education and 
Training" is sweeping the 
professions like wildfire. So- 
licitors do it. Surveyors do iL 
Even educated engineers do it 
- and only the most hardened 
country accountant or provin- 
cial architect would claim that 
updating their skills and 
knowledge is unnecessary. 

“The Royal Institute of 
British Architects has set up a 
number of pilot projects 
which are aimed at encourag- 
ing continuing professional 
development” said Norman 
Roberts of the RIBA southern 
branch. “Here in the south we 
have been undertaking a ma- 
jor survey of members' opin- 
ions to identify where the 
training should be focused. By 
using a checklist of good 
practice we are starting to pin 
down where people want 

Like most professional 
groups these days the archi- 
tects are being pressured into 
continuing education by two 
distinct factors. 

First as practitioners they 
need to keep up-to-date with 
new techniques and materials. 
They need to understand toe 

implications of information 
technology and they need to 
stay abreast of changes in the 

Second, as business opera- 
tors they need to improve 
better management skills; to 
understand changes in toe 
market: and to devise more 
efficient methods of running 
their practices. 

Engineers, on toe other 
hand, have no hesitation in 
admitting that they need more 
education. In a report issued 
just a couple of weeks ago ( A 
Cal! to Action — Continuing 
Education and Training for 
Engineers and Technicians) 
toe Engineering Council said 
that it was “convinced that a 
radical change of attitude 
towards cont inuing education 
and training (CET) is needed”. 

Meanwhile at toe Royal 
Institute of Chartered Survey- 
ors a recent report Continuing 
Education: Five Years On will 
shortly be discussed by toe 
General CounciL In fact the 
RICS is already firmly behind 
CPD ('Continuing profession- 
al development' as they call it) 
and it is about to introduce a 
new Diploma in Property 

Marketing as an advanced 
specialist qualification for 
those who are already profes- 

sionally qualified. 

One of toe problems about 
continuing education, howev- 
er. is the puzzle of who will 
conduct iu 

Although toe R1C is bring- 
ing in the College of Estate 
Management for its new Di- 
ploma much of the day-to-day 
CPD is done through self-help 
in local branches. This may 
work for the surveyors and it 
certainly reflects well on ihe 
motivation of those involved. 
But effective training for pro- 
fessionals ideally needs, to be 
done by people who are skilled 
in training techniques. 

In an ideal world there 
would be a varied array of 
training ferilities available so 
that whatever the need or 
circumstance a professional 
person could tap into an 
appropriate professionally or- 
ganized training package. As 
engineering recruitment ex- 
pert Michael Stills of SRL said 
recently: “The problem with 
most traditional courses is 
that they have to be booked up 
too far ahead, they're toa long 

and they* re too expensive.*’' . • ■ 

To remedy this' toe; Man- 
power Services” Commission 
has stimulated thd growth of 
’’Open Learning” (through-toe 
Open Tech) and the Depart- - 
ment of Education and ScR : 
cnce has developed its Pidtup 
(professional industrial and \ 
commercial updating pro- 
gramme). V : X 7 

Perhaps toe strongest tine- 
taken so far. on CPD is that of 
the Law Society which: has 
made continuing education 
compulsory "Tor newly quali- 
fied solicitors fora’peridd.of 
three years. The feet that toe . 
lawyers are so con vinced of its 
value must surely mean; toar- 
continuing education cannot 
be gainsaid. 

As a recent editorial in the 
magazine Surveying Tcchhi-’ 
dan says: “Ills no longergood 
enough to. claim a person is 
qualified at Ihe commence- 
ment of his or her career aud 
will remain so without further 
definite training for toe itexi 
40 years or so.” .

A new message on people and skills 

Sponsoring the Education. 
Training and Personal Devel- 
opment exhibition is some- 
thing of a mixed pleasure for 
toe Institute of Training and 
Development “It is the largest 
event of its kind in Europe.” 
says George Webster, the 
institute's executive director, 
“and it's an excellent place for 
people to get together and 
meet the producers of equip- 
ment and services. But al- 
though the exhibition is a 
success it doesn't mean, unfor- 
tunately. that the importance 
of training itself has yet been 
fully appreciated. We've still 
got a long way to go.” 

The institute represents 
6.S00 training specialists 
throughout the UK together 
with ■ the 300 organizations 
which are most committed to 
training Since its foundation 
in the early 1 960s toe institute 
has seen the status of training 
rise considerably and it wel- 
comes the recent trend (most 
evident in the jobs’ columns 
of toe quality press) for new 
high-ranking training posts to 
be created. 

“Whereas the industrial re- 
lations function has been on a 
decline over the last few 
years.” says Mr Webster, “the 
training role has grown. There 
are now a number of well- 
paid. senior jobs in training” 
Unfortunately, there are still a 

number of misconceptions 
about the nature of training 

“For too many people train- 
ing is equated with courses.” 
says Mr Webster. “A few years 
ago toe move to make training 
an 'oflrthejob' activity went 
too far so that it was seen as 
something which was rather 
narrow and isolated.” 

One of the institute's chief 
priorities, therefore, is to raise 
awareness of the scope of 
training In doing this it has a 
major ally in toe Manpower 
Services Commission. The 
two have been collaborating 
recently in preparing a man- 

agement awareness pro- 
gramme together with Trainer 
Support Services which will be 
launched at toe exhibition: 

The institute also welcomes 
toe trend for educational insti- 
tutions to become more in- 
volved in training and 
assessment Both the Depart- 
ment of Education and Sci- 
ence and the Manpower 
Services Commission have 
been nudging academics into 
sharing with industry their 
knowledge, skills and re- 
sources. And there have been 
some successes. Oxford Uni- 
versity will be prominent at 
the exhibition- . 

Even so. the major obstacle 
to training remains onejof 
attitudes.. . ■ 

What toe institute hopes for. . 
is that the “training cthps” _L -

•Those, . who have giggled 
tbrcfcgh one of John Geese's 
video training films ma y be 
disappointed the next time 
they see .video on their train- 
ing progcamme. Rather than

mour they may find the video

demanding replies. ■ 

a piece of video or perhaps a 
still photograph will be sum- 
moned up through the- com- 
puter to give a demonstration. 

The result is that the video 
is being subordinated to teach- 

ing objectives. the flexibility 
of the screen, which can be 

used for moving pictures, text

It is. usually possible to 
con vey j ust half a dozen or so 
basic jpoints in a conventional 
20-m route film. and, as train- 
ing becomes more profession- 
al .and hard-headed, many 
trainers are now demanding 
more, for .their money. The 
role ■ of video in training 
therefore, may be about to 
change. ■ Instead of being a 
stand-alone medium it is like- 
ly to be found increasingly 
(and especially, via the video- 
disc) as an adjunct to comput- 
er-based training. 

The arrival of interactive . 
training packages, in which 
individuals work their way 
through a variety of material 
on a screen, is now with us. 
Trainees will be guided 
through the subject matter by 
a text, either in a book or on 
the screen. And where it is 
necessary to illustrate a point, 
such as a technique in the use 
of a too! or a selling skill, then

who see the art disappearing 
from their craft.

“In fact, the initiative is 
passing from the film-maker 
to the professional trainer.” 

Mr Blakstad is involved in 
making five programmes for 
computer-company Digital. 
Although they are not interac- 
tive they are full of informa- 
tion and learning points — for 
more than he would ever have 
attempted in the old days. The 
programmes will take the

of DEC'S in-house courses and

A couple of years ago the 
Manpower Services Commis- 
sion conducied.a survey of 
skill shortages, in Newbury, 
the town.. midway along the 
M4 rSili.«m corridor” be- 
tween Reading and Swindon. 

The ’results were .sobering,. 
Yes. there; .were significant 
skills' shortages and, predict- 
ably. ihfey occurred particular- 

ly in the field of engineering. 
Rui most acute of all thev 

But most acute of all they 
occurred at the technician 

level. As Tom King, then 
Secretary of State for "Employ, 
menu said; “The shortages in 
Newbury for skills in comput- 
er maintenance, design and 
testing, (and) for technicians 
are recurring all over the 

The increasing demand for 
technicians' came as no sur- 
prise to the various profes- 
sional bodies which represent 
them. And. since the Newbury 
survey, the skills shortages 
have got worse. 

Because technician-level 
work is a cross between think- 
ing and doing, it has suffered 
in the status stakes. The prime 
body responsible for techni- 
cian qualifications is the Busi- 
ness and Technician 
Education Council (BTECj 
and one of its worries is that 
virtually anyone capable of 
scraping on to a degree course 
will do so. 

-At the lower level the 
problem of conflicting exam 
bodies bas choked the 

“Producing interactive vid- 
eo material will be less excit- 
ing than making a 20-minute 
film because there won't be 
ibe same challenge of building 
a story through pace and 
rhythm and holding the 
viewers' interest and attention 
over a number of minutes,” 
says Michael Blakstad, of the 
Video Disc Company. “In- 
stead it will be a matter of 
shooting much shorter roateri- 

The British interactive vid- 
eo market is small and strug- 
gling: Only a few companies— 
such as Patrick Friesner’s 
Interactive Information Sys-

have cracked a market Al- 
though everyone recognizes 
that the potential is enormous 
there are practical and finan- 
cial problems.

wide open for US imports 
which have been tarted up for 
British audiences. ’ 

The joker in the pack, 1 
however, may be the Man- ,

its rumoured intention of

been a shortage of adequately 
trained people in the middle- 

Yet more than ever, the 
demand for people who can 
both think and do is strongest. 
Many of the functions tradi- 
tionally 1 performed, by 
technics ns (such as test quali- 
ty assurance and production 
supervision) are becoming 
more sophisticated. The intro- 
duction of computer-aided de- 

Big demand for those 
who can think and do 

sign is enhancing the 
technicians* role in the design 
process. And on the shop-floor 
computer-aided manufacture 
is upgrading the skills needed 
both by maintenance staff and 
skilled production workers. 

Bui there are dangers in 
generalizing about techni- 
cians. For example, the subtle- 
ties of status have created two 
classes in engineering — the 
engineering technician and the 
technician engineer - and 
never the twain shall meet. 

In the hotel and catering 
industry, by contrast, there is 
little, if any, distinction drawn 
between the graduate hotelier 
and the Higher National-qual- 
ified person. And in the field 
of design . (graphic, fashion, 
industrial) the relationship be- 
tween -those qualified via 

BTECs higher national diplo- 
ma (the technicians) and 
CNAA's degree (the conceiv- 
es) pretty well defies any 
definition which is acceptable 
to both sides. 

What is dear already is that 
technicians are at last receiv- 
ing their fong overdue recogni- 
tion. The present BTEC 
campaign. Engineering 
Change, is enjoying consider- 
able support in bringing to- 
gether industrialists and 
educationists to hammer out 
what must be done to keep 
technician-training in line 
with the changes in the fac- 
tories and design offices. 

The Open BTEC pro- 
gramme. in conjunction with 
Macmillan Education, is mak- 
ing BTEC business qualifica- 
tions available through open 
learning. And the overall 
number of students registered 
for BTEC qualifications went 
up by 20 per cent between 
1982 and 1984. 

The upwards drive though 
isn't restricted to BTEC alone. 
The City and Guilds of Lon- 
don Institute is pushing for- 
ward a campaign to establish 
in Britain the equivalent of the 
German Meister — the senior 
craftsman — who can control 
resources, manage projects 
and also communicate his 
skills. In the light of develop- 
ments in the youth training 
scheme the person who can 
both do arid teach is likely to 
be especially imponanL 

Beware computer cowboys 

Whatever else may be happen- 
ing in the training field there is 
a fantastic boom in teaching 
people how to nse their com- 
puters. The demand is coming 
from both large and small 
companies, the self-employed 
and private individuals. In- 
deed the world seems to be 
dividing into those who deliver 
computer training and those 
who receive it 

Such an explosion in de- 
mand obviously creates oppor- 
tunities for cowboys, so 
caution and careful investiga- 
tion are essential before in- 
vesting money in a training 

Perhaps the most startling 
feature of the current scene is 
that (as predicted) computer 
training really seems to have 
become a non-stop process. As 
soon as yon have mastered one 
technique yon need to go away 
and learn somethiim else. . 

“We are serving raegeftera-

introduced but who have still

in both of which he achieved 

seconded from the Foreign 
Office, the Colonial Office, the 

Treasury and other depart- 
ments, and as secretary of this 
mixed collection Sandford 
made his usual impression of 
orderly efficiency. 

He returned lo the Air 
Ministry in 1944 as assistant 
under-secretary. He was pro- 
moted to deputy under-secre- 
tary in 1947 and held that post 
until he retired from the Civil 
Service .in.. 1958 .to become 
Registrar of • Oxford 
University. '. 

This post bad been largely 
created by his predecessor. Sir 
Douglas Veale, who had done 
much to impart iogjcaT order 
into the archaic confusion of 
University administration. 

The qualities required for 
the post are those of a civil 
servant, efficiency, good- judg- 
ment and the enacement of 
the personality in support of

As a civil servant, chiefly in 
the Air Ministry, he won and 
retained the confidence and 
respect of his colleagues, both 
service and civilian. When in 
1958 he became Registrar of 
Oxford University he soon 
achieved a similar position for 
himself in the very different 
world of the academics. He 
retired from this post in 1 972.

was born on October 28, 1906. 
After five years at Winchester 
he went to New College, 
Oxford, at first as a Common-

and Senior Scholar (and in 
1958, when he returned to 
Oxford as registrar, his old 
college elected him a Fellow). 

He obtained Firsts in

in 1930. He became assistant 
private secretary to the Secre-

he served no less than four

Mr Thomas Robert 
Calthorpe Blofeld, CBE, a 
leading figure in Norfolk agri- 
cultural circles and a former 
High Sheriff of the county, 
died on June 28. He was 82. 

Professors P. Lasko and G. 
Zarnccki write: 

Throughout his life, Tom 
Blofeld was deeply concerned 
with running the estates that 
have been in the Blofeld 
family for over 360 years and 
it was typical of his love for 
the countryside that he placed 
Great Hoveton Broad in the 
care of the Nature Conservan- 
cy to ensure its preservation. 

Together with his wife, 
Grizel, he made it a gem of a 
house, filled with appropriate 
treasures of every kind. 

He was both a scholar and a 
dilettante of the arts in the 
best 1 8th centry sense and he 
built upa fine personal library 
and studied the history of his 
estate m detail. 

No one was better informed 
than he about the prints, the 
watercolours, the paintings, 
the objers d'art and the superb 
collection of delft faience 
which he brought together. 

The love he had for the 
exquisite environment which 
he and Grizel created, he was 
able to pass on to the many 

visitors they readily received. 
To those who had like inter- 
ests. no one could have been 
more charming a guide or 
more ready to share his plea- 
sure and his wide knowledge- 

As he collected, so he made 
innumerable friends at home 
and abroad in museum and 
art circles, as well as in 
antiquarian circles. Thus, for 
example, he was a- trustee of 
the ancient “Great Hospital” 
in Norwich which has looked 
after the elderly of the diocese 
for more than 700 years. 

Blofeld was elected a fellow 
of the Society of Antiquaries 
of London in 1978. 

He is survived by his wife, 
two sons, Henry Blofeld, the 
cricket commentator, and J. 
C. C. Blofeld, QC - Judge 
Blofeld, a circuit judge - and a

Revival of solid achievement 


Sculpture in Britain 
between the Wars 
Fme Art Society 

Glyn Philpot 
Leighton House 

Caribbean Art Now 

Commonwealth Institute 

In foreign parts Britain is widely 
regarded as not only a great produc- 
er of sculpture but a great sculpture- 
loving country. It comes as quite a 
surprise to visitors of this mind to 
discover how relatively few and 
shamefaced are the major public 
sculptures erected here since I94S, 
and how few dedicated sculpture- 
collectors there are in Britain. It 
might also seem odd that so many 
of our most notable sculptors from 
the earlier part of this century have 
been aln7osi completely forgotten: 
even interested Britons seldom 
know the names clearly enough to 
wonder at their disappearance. But 
things may be changing: first the 
splendid New Art Centre show of 
British sculpture from the Fifties, 
and now a matching show at the 
Fine Ait Society of Sculpture in 
Britain between the Wars (until 
August 1). are serving to revive 
interest and refocus attention. 

Some of the names of course we 
know very welL As well as Henry 
Moore, represented by a wonderful 
Hopton-Wood Maternity of 1924, 
amd Barbara Hep worth, most sur- 
prisingly shown in a very tender and 
naturalistic female Torso of J927, 
there are the. in their different ways, 
towering figures of Jacob Epstein 
and Eric Gilf. With four such 
important models, you might think 
that the range of styles permissible 
in British sculpture from 1918 to 
1939 was quite frilly covered. But 
not a bit of it. 

There is the surviving academic 
tradition, which after all had not so 
long before been the “New 
Sculpture” of the 1880s and 1890s. 
Indeed, Alfred Gilbert himself was 
still alive, still active, through most 
of the period and sculptors who 
followed on very much in his line, 
people (ike Gilbert Bayes and 
William Reid Dick, were legion. 
And then there is what we would 
now call the Deco tradition — 
though no one would have thought 
of it that way at the time — which 
gave us major works from Charles 
Sergeant Jagger. superbly reinstated 
in a centenary show at the Imperial 
War Museum last year, and Eric 
Kennington, whose drawings, 
though not yet his sculptures, have 
been exciting renewed attention of 

All this makes for a rich and 
varied show, to which the only 
objection would be that it does try 
rather to force a quart into a pint 
poL But by doing so it does also help 
to remind us that you do not need 
somewhere the size of Blenheim in 
order to collect and show sculpture: 
most of the pieces present are 
certainly of domestic size. 

The Whitechapel's big survey 
show a few years ago revealed 
Maurice Lambert (Constant’s bro- 
ther — the thirty balanced one who 
therefore does not come much into 
Andrew Motion's book on the 
family) as a very interesting artist 
indeed, and here one can rejoice in 
the boldly abstracted Golden Pheas- 
ant worthy of Brancusi and the- 
aluminium head of Edith Sitwell 
which would make a fitting com- 
panion piece to Frank Dobson's 
femous image of Osbert now in the 
Tate. Another figure clearly worth 
further exploration is Ursula 
Edgcumbe, whose smoothly stylized 
realism in The Musicians recalls the 
work of the Czech Gutfreund. 

There are other, more isolated 
figures: Arnold Auerbach (no rela- 
tion of Frank), who is shown with 
an extraordinary Vorticisi Head-, 
Gilbert LedwanL whose richly. 

elegantly carved Monolith is appar- 
ently in the Talc, though one does 
wonder when it can last have been 
shown: and Glyn Philpot. who can 
perhaps qualify as'Oniy an occasion- 
al sculptor, in moments snatched 
from his busy life as a painter, but 
dearly has in abundance the special 
gift of being able to think vividly in 
three dimensions. 

Any doubt on this score can be 
resolved by a visit to Leighton 
House, where until Saturday ail 
except one of his 14 known sculp- 
tures are on show, backed up by 
paintings on related themes — 
particularly useful in the case of 
Mask: The Dead Faun, which has 
inevitable overtones of Nijinsky but 
.was actually based on one of 
Philpoi's favourite painting models, 
George Bridgman, who is therefore 
also shown in portrait drawings, a 
subject-painting and a contempo- 
rary photograph. 

Sculpture, this lime of our own 
day, also figures prominently just 
round the corner from Leighton 
House al the Commonwealth Insti- 
tute, where until August 4 there is a 
major show devoted to Caribbean 
Art Now. It is hard to guess what 
one should expect from such a show 
on such a subject. Perhaps the 
easiest basis for speculation would 
be the big show of contemporary 
African art the Institute staged five 
or six years ago. But in practice this 
proves a thoroughly misleading 
model. Where most of the African 
an was-definitely within the area of 
the naive, much of the West Indian 
art is highly sophisticated. Remark- 
ably so, since the catalogue informs 
us that in Barbados, for instance, 
“fine art” as such was non-existent 
before the Thirties. 

Buu however new-found the ar- 
tistic culture of these artists from 
the Caribbean, it is has evidently 
been chosen with discrimination 
and very well absorbed into the 
system. There are one or two 
primitive-looking pieces, but one 
would never mistake the Jamaicans 
Milton George or Robert Cook- 

thomc for genuinely] untutored 
artists: in the intensity of their 
vision, and the forceful ness of their 
boldly simplified and often violent- 
ly coloured forms, they belong very 
dearly to the same world as Berlin's 
New Wild painters. George's power- 
ful Crucifixion diptych and such 
challenging works as Cooktftome's 
The King and the MX-hird or 
Figurc/Mask are not easy to forget, 
and seem to make finely calculated 
use of local ethnic elements as well 
as the lingua franca of international 

Two women artists from Barba- 
dos. Dianne Butcher and Norma 
Talma, are at the other end of the 
scale, in the diminutive size and the 
quietness of their works: both make 
collages. Butcher with fabrics in a 
range of subdued browns, and 
Talma with handmade, paper in a 
variety of delicate colours. 

But perhaps the most striking 
artist of all these new people — new 
to us. at any rate — is the 
Trinidadian Francisco Cabral, a 
sculptor all of whose works seem to 
be in the form of chairs. Not, 
needless to say. the sort of chairs 
you could sit on. or not with any 
hope or comfort. Indeed, mental 
comfort seems no more a pan of his 
intention than physical: the chairs 
are disturbing ritual objects, with 
overtones of sacrificial altars, im- 
ages of the gods (gods very much in 
need of propitiation), stales and . 
balances, and all kinds of other 
things to keep one psychologically; 
and no doubt physically, off-bal- 
ance.. It is amazing the variety of - 
effects Cabral can produce from one 
basic form. 

Now we have discovered him let 
us hope we do not lose touch again. 
Certainly in the perhaps precarious 
degree of cultural cooperation the 
Caribbean states have achieved in 
order to stage this show at all lies 
their best chance of impressing the 
outside world, and retaining our 
attention for a number of artists 
well deserving of wider than local

Lindsay Quartet 

Luigi Cherubini is described 
bv The New Grove as “that 
most difficult of types, a 
-conservative revolutionary”. 
■ One’s first impressions of his 
First String Quartet in E flat, 
composed in 1814. would 
certainly lead one to concur 
with such an assessment. Au- 
diences at the Lindsay Quar- 
tet's remaining concerts in this 
enterprising Cheltenham Fes- 
tival series will be able to hear 
■for themselves whether or not 
the judgement applies to the 
five other examples of the 
genre that Cherubini, has left 
its. : ' 

Beethoven apparently, ad- 
mired Cherubini more than 
any of his other contemporar- 
ies., and .with adulation com- 
ing from such quarters it 
would be surprising not to 
find a touch of Beethoven in 
Cherubini's music. Here it is 

found most obviously in a first 
movement of pithy character 
and adventurous harmonic 
excursion, though perhaps 
Beethoven would have taken 
things a stage further where 
Cherubini sometimes seems 
to balk at the possibilities he 
sets up for himself. One can 
understand Schumann's reser- 
vations about such music, for 
Cherubini contains something 
of Beethoven’s rough-edged 
manner, where Schumann 
does noL 

The slow movement, a set 
of four often highly embel- 
lished variations, again has 

somethingof Beethoven about 

it, though there are also influ- 
ences of be! canto an d ol 
dramatic devices learnt from 
the opera stage, where Cheru- 
bini made his reputation. A 
characterful G minor Scherzo 
comes next full of dynamic 
cross-accents and conscious 
effects, but hinting that when 
it comes to balance he prefers 
to keep to time-honoured 
principles and lighten the 

atmosphere as the music 

To compose light music like 
that of the finale, however, 
demands something like 
Haydn's divine inspiration. 
Here the exuburam, vigorous 
wit of Cherubini’s counter- 
point suggested a composer of 
very much more than mere 
passing interest. If this is his 
first quartet, what may we 
expect of the rest? 

The concert began with a 
cool, well-balanced reading of 
Haydn’s Quartet Op 50 No I, 
an adventurous work itself, its 
pregnant, throbbing cello B 
flats and its simple cadential 
figure in the first movement 
unleashing a veritable torrent 
of invention. And there was 
also Bartdk's Fust Quytet, a 
few worlds removed from the 
purposeful conciseness of its 
successors, perhaps, but just as 
effective in its own, rather 
Berg-like manner. The Lind- 
say's brilliant, fervent perfor- 
mance was impossible to fault.

Devon PUS OCR. 

West Germany has two film 
capitals, with an unconcealed 
spirit of rivalry between them. 
Munich fostered the birth and 
the best of the New German 
Cinema of the Sixties and 
Severnies, whose origins could 
be partly traced to the city's 
own school of film and televi- 
sion. Currently Berlin is striv- 
ing to win back the initiative 
by offering generous subven- 
tions to productions based in 
the city, and ever-improving 
studio and technical facilities. 

Berlin has had its interna- 
tional film festival since 1951: 
conceived in the spirit of the 
Cold War, it did not admit 
films from the Socialist Bloc 
until the Sixiies. a Munich’s 
newer Filmfest is growing 
rapidly in stature. Munich 
disclaims any conscious rival- 

S with Berlin, pointing out 
at the festival is committed 
to a non-competitive principle 
and that its aim is to provide a 
cultural event for Munich 
rather than an international 
market-place. Munich also 
hosts the annual Festival of 
European Films. Films are 
selected from all European 
coutries. East or West, but 
only directors from EEC coun- 
tries are eligible for the Com- 
munity prize, awarded for a 
first or second feature. 

This does not lessen the 
prestige of the European Prize, 
which went this year to a 

British film. Sea Coat by 
unanimous vote of the inter- 
national jury. The award is all 
the more gratifying as recogni- 
tion of tiie film workshop 
movement which flourishes in 
this country thanks to the 
encouragement of the film 
trade unions, and, more often 
than not, the support of 
Channel 4 — who in fact 
financed Sea Coal. Made by 
the Amber Collective of New- 
castle, under the leadership of 
Murray Marlin, Sea Coal in 
no way conforms to stereotype 
preconceptions of the collec- 
tive film. Even though the 
group insist .that there is no 
dominant creative individual, 
there is evidently a real film 
genius at work here. 

The film triumphantly dem- 
onstrates that the small, spe- 
cific, local instance can often 
provide the most significant 
illumination of the human 
predicament (this was the gist 
of the jury's citation). Sea 
Coal describes the life of the 
people who traditionally live 
by harvesting coal washed up 
from the sea on the Northum- 
brian coast at Lynemouth. For 
centuries this has been regard- 
ed as a common right both of 
the locals and the travellers in 
their caravan community; but 
in 1979 the NCB sold the 
beach and mineral, rights to a 
local entrepreneur. 

The film-makers set out- to 

expose this symptomatic ero- 
sion of ancient social organ- 
isms — a microcosm ic modern 
parallel to the Enclosures of 
the 16th century. In the pro- 
cess they demonstrate a re- 
markable ability to enter into 
the life of these men and 
women on the edge of society. 
Mixing actors and real-life 
sea-coalers, they introduce a 
fictionalized story of a couple 
driven by unemployment to 
join the beach community. 
The professionals serve as a 
catalyst to help the non-actors 
re-create their own lives and 
selves for the camera. The 
joins between composition 
and reality are barely visible. 

What is most surprising 
about Sea Coal is that it has 
been around for almost a year, 
practically, unheralded in this 
country. It was- shown on 
Channel 4 late one night in 
January, and briefly though 
enthusiastically reviewed by 
two television critics. There- 
after it had two screenings at 
the Metro Cinema, but was 
not revealed to the film Press. 
It won the Marks and Spencer 
award on its home ground at 
the Tyneside Festival, but the 
event is, regrettably, not cov- 
ered by the national Press. 
Unforgivably, it was refused 
by the London Rim Festival 
Without the European Prize, 
in feet, it would probably have 
been buried for ever.

era will this year visit Oxford.

London concerts 





The ICA's concert series, re- 
luming for another summer 
season of Sunday nights, can 
be relied on to be stimulating. 
This first evening was devoted 
to the music of the 50-year-old 
German composer Helmut 
Lachenmann, who has been 
played and talked about with 
increasing partisanship on the 
Continent, but who had not, 
as far as I am aware, been 
much performed before in this 
country. Well, now we know. 

Lachenraann's starting- 
int would seem to be the 
familiar one that the house of 
music has long lain uninhabit- 
ed. that all a composer today 
can do is to kick over the dust, 
shake a few bones and listen to 
the rodents behind the walls. 
These things he does with 
some assiduousness. The 
most characteristic sound of 
his . music., to judge from -the 
two pieces played on Sunday 
night, is a soft dry rattle, the 
noise very often of instru- 
ments being played in uncon- 
ventional ways: air blown 
tonelessly through wind in- 
struments. palms brushed 
over guitars, violins bowed on 
the neck. This is all good end- 
of-an stuff. 

But Lachenmann's problem 
is that people will go on 
listening for something pleas- 
ant and it is awfully hard to 
avoid providing it His 
Mouvemcnt vor der Ers tar- 
rung for 18-piece ensemble is 
quite successful in the avoid- 
ance: it was laid out by Circle 
under Ingo Metzmacher as a 
landscape of rustlings, scrapes, 
electric bells and pointless 
percussion toccatas. But in 

Saiul for CaudweU. for two 
guitars, it was difficult to 
remain entirely impervious to 

As played by Wilhelm 
Brock and Theodor Ross. 
Lachenmann’s marginal ef- 
fects produced magical 
sounds: the sounds of two 
small chambers echoing with 
noise and chiming. And the 
very end, with the desert 
journey finally reaching some 
quiet brushed flamenco 
rhythms, had a poignancy 
quite beyond the composer's 
intentions, al least if one is to 
take seriously his appeal here 
to the aesthetics of Christo- 
pher Caudwell. In introducing 
the piece he spoke of compos- 
ing not sounds but “ways of 
hearing”. Sounds, though, 
may be easier to control. 

Paul Griffiths 



Festival Hall . ; . 

What a strange, programme to 
choose to round out the 
Phrlharmonia's season. Not a 
soloist in sight; instead, two 
hefty orchestral works, neither 
of them obviously contrasted 
nor obviously connected, and 
one of them Liszt's intermina- 
ble Faust Symphony. Result a 
predictably half-empty Festi- 
val Halt even with the much- 
vaunted Esa-Pekka Salonen 
on the rostrum. 

It is difficult not to compare 
Salonen's performance of 
Respighi's Pines of Rome with 
Giuseppe Sinopoli's account 
of its companion piece. Foun- 
tains of Rome, with the 
Philharmonia a few weeks 
ago. I wish Salonen showed 

half of Sinopoli's ear for inner 

For instance, he launched 
into the opening tableau of 
Pines of Rome — a shrill, vivid 
little portrait of children at 
play by the Pines of the Villa 
Borghese — with plenty of the 
expected dynamism, although 
you simply could not hear 
what the violins were up to 
among the blare of woodwind 
and brass around them. The 
concluding- peroration, evok- 
ing the Roman armies march- 
ing along the Appian Way, 
was delivered with appalling 
crudeness and anyway failed 
to work even in those terms (it 
peaked to' soon). 

But thankflilly Salonen also 
possesses the capacity to stand 
back and let things happen 
when the moment is right No 
doubt the Philharmonia are 
grateful for such opportunities 
to display their marvellous 
range of individual skills: 
John McCaw’s exquisitely 
shaded clarinet solo in “The 
Pines of the Jariiculum Hill” 
was accompanied by sus- 
tained string chords as quiet 
and yet as alive as breathing 
iiself. The sombre harmonies 
of “Pines Near a Catacomb’’ 
also sounded wonderfully 
penetrating from this out- 
standing string section. 

While I am reluciant to lake 
issue with William Mann's 
advocacy of Liszt's Faust 
Symphony in his programme- 
note for this concert I also fail 
to understand the current 
vogue for this tedious, over- 
earnest and ultimately mis- 
guided effusion by one of the 
supreme musical phenomena 
of the 19th century. Salonen 
worked his way through it 
with energy and lucidity; the 
Philharmonia responded with 
lhe J r habitual expertise.

Airship group 
offers Nimrod 

By Rodney Cowton, Defence Correspondent 

Seven companies yesterday 
submined bids to the Ministry 
of Defence to provide the 
Royal Air Force with airborne 
early warning capacity which 
it has been seeking for nearly 
10 years. 

The bids were called for 
because of doubts on whether 
GEC could successfully com- 
plete the Nimrod airborne 
early warning (AEW) project 
with which it has been strug- 
gling for years. 

The proposals put forward 
include one from GEC for 
completing the Nimrod pro- 
gramme, but include some 
surprise entries, including a 
plan to use airships. 

As expected the bidding 
companies included Boeing 
with its E3 AWACS, Lock- 
heed with the P3C Orion, and 
Grumman with two propos- 
als. one using its E2C Hawk- 
eye which is in service with 
the US Navy, and the other 
involving the fitting of the 
Hawkeye's radar and other 
electronic systems into the 
Nimrod airframe. 

The surprise bids have 
come from Airship Industries 
of Cardington in Bedford- 
shire, Pilatus Britten-Norman 
of the Isle of Wight, and 
M.E.L of Crawley, Sussex. 

Airship Industries is pro- 
posing the use of 100-ton ■ 
airships, which it claims could 
stay on patrol for three or four : 
days at a stretch, and have 
operating costs of only about 

one-third of a normal aircraft 
Their disadvantage is that 
they can only travel at alow 
speeds, and operate from rela- 
tively low altitude. But it is 
claimed that these could be 

overcome - economically,* he- 


cause, of the long patrol time 
and low operating .costs. 

The comply is also com- 
peting with its airships for a 
US Navy contract which 
could be worth S6 billion (£3.9 

The bid by Pilatus Britten- 
Norman involves using a 
version of their Islander civil 
aircraft. It is being proposed as 
part of a two-tier system in, 
which the military version of 
its aircraft, known as the 
Defender, would supplement 
one of the longer range aircraft 
such as AWACS or Nimrod* 

- The Defender, fitted with a 
radar capable of tracking 100 
airborne targets and 32 mari- 
time targets would operate 
ips 100-1 50 miles from 

It is argued that the costs of 
a Defender would be only one- 
tenth. or less, than those of the 
longer-range aircraft such as 

The other bid is by M. E. L, 
of the P 

which is part of the Philips 
group. It refused to reveal any 
details, beyond, saying that it 
would draw on the full re- 
sources of the Philips g&up. _• 
The Ministry' of" Defence 
said that it would now study 
all the proposals. ■ * ■ 

Chopsticks and tranquillity at new car plant 

By a Staff Reporter 

Workers at Nissan's new 
British factory, where produc- 
tion begins next week, will 
share most but not quite all the 
conditions enjoyed by their 
colleagues in Japan. 

The canteen for the 470 
workers at the £50 million 
plant at Washington, Tyne 
and Wear, serves Japanese 
dishes complete with chop- 
sticks and after a busy spell on 
the production lines workers 
an take* break in Japanese- 
Styterestrooms. - . 

■ Bat industrial relations have- 
one big difference —workers m 
Ja pan have a union closed 
shop, which is banned at the 
Washington plant. 

A spokesman for Nissan 
said yesterday: “It is very 
much a British company in the 
way it is run, but there are 
.influences from Japan such as 
the -company's philosophy of 
quality, flexibility 

"Industrial relations are 
something completely home- 
grown and there is no dosed 
shop as exiSts in Japan." 

.Nissan Bluebird cars from 
the factory are expected to go 
on sale in the autumn. 

They will have a40 per cent 
British content. About 27 Brit- 
ish component firms are al- 
ready supplying Washington 
and a further six sue in the 
final stages of negotiation. 

Ford has told union leaders 
that an even bigger effort will 
be required by its workers to 
meet the competition from 
Nissan as the British-made 
cars will have a. cost advantage 
of around £700 a car because 
they are assembled from main- 
ly- Japanese parts by a new 
labour force with few Overhead 
costs. •

Death sentence on grandmother

Besides that of Barlow were 
his crutches, which indicated 
that he had been standing on 
the trap-door with them. He 
had a neurological problem 
that made him rely on his 
crutches to walk. 

Christopher Barlow said his 
brother had given him all his 
clothes the previous night 
when Kevin wanted to see 
him. and that he would go to 
his death in his prison clothes. 
There is speculation that 
Kevin Barlow's body was 

naked when it was taken to the 
mortuary since prison rules 
call for the clothes to be taken 
off bodies before they are 
taken out 

The coffin was sealed at the 
crematorium where a brief 
Anglican service was held; to 
escape journalists, the family 
decided to move the venue 
from the St Mary's Church in 
Kuala Lumpur. The Chant 
bers family kept itself incom- 
municado yesterday, while 
they made their own prepara- 
tions to take Brian 
Chambers's body home. 

Meanwhile, it was learnt 
that Barlow has made a six- 

page wiH, leaving his meagre 
possessions to his parents, his 
two brothers and sister, and to 
Lee Jones, his common law 

Informed sources who had 
seen the will said he had very 
few things to distribute to his 
relatives. Most of the legacies 
included personal belongings 
-like his hi-fi set, his airgun, 
Sony Walkman, clothes and 
kitchen utensils. 

The will also left instruc- 
tions appointing Christopher 
as his executor and instructing 
Lee Jones to inter his ashes in 
the scrublands of Jericho in 
Tasmania, where she lives.

Rover Group forecasts 
further serious losses 


By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


The offer-for-saJe price of 
Windsmooris I06p, not 120p 
as stated in yesterday's issue of 
The Times. 

Rover Group, the renamed 
BL. which made a pretax loss 

last year of £1 10.3 million, is 

lacing the prospect of further 
serious losses in the first half 
of this year. Mr Graham Day. 
the new chairman, told the 
annual meeting in Loudon 

At the same time, he an- 
nounced the widely expected 
resignation of Mr Ray 
Horrocks. the chief executive 
°f BL Cars, who has made 
public his acute displeasure at 
not being promoted to the 
chairman’s job. Mr Day said: 
“1 offered' him a position to 
remain, but he declined". 

Mr Day. who has taken over 
at a critical time for the 
company, with the trucks 
business jn trouble and further - 
privatization on the horizon, 
said the group's position rep- 
resented “a significant deteri- 
oration in financial per- 
formance" and this would be 
reflected in the first-half re- 

sults due to be published in 

Austin Rover's first-half 
losses could be double the £10 
million deficit it recorded for 
the whole of 1985. 

Yet there were positive 
.elements to come through, of 
which the most important was 
the launch of the Rover 800 
range, and how Austin Rover 
performed in the August sales 
peak. These would have a big 
impact on the financial result 
for the whole year. 

Mr Day said that Land 
Rover was si ill recovering 
from the uncertainly sur- 
rounding its possible sale ear- 
lier in the year and he made 
dear that it would need two or 
three years of positive 
progress in models, markets 
and financial performance be- 
fore being ready for return to 
the private sector. 

Last week's announcement 
of a £50 million order from the 
Australian Army for 2.900 
Land Rovers, won against 

Ray Horrocks: resigned 
when not made chairman 

every other competitor in the 
world, spoke volumes for the 
strength of the Land Rover 
range, he said. The launch of 
the Range Rover in the North 
American market in 1987 was 
the next most important step. 

The sale of Unipart to a 
consortium of investors was 
expected in the next two 
months, said Mr Day. and he 

disclosed that, the Rover 
Group would retain about 30 
per cent of the parts company 
to enable it to nominate a 
member of the board and “to 
play a significant role in the 
future direction of the

Retail sales and consumer 
credit figures down in May 

By David Smith and Derek Harris 

Final retail sales figures for 
May. released yesterday, re- 
veal a slightly larger decline 
than originally estimated. 
Consumer credit also felt and 
the retail trade holds mixed 
views about the strength of 
sales in June and early July. 

Retail sales volume fell by 
0.9 per cent in May,- after 
falling by 0.4 percent in April. 
However, the 221 per cent 
surge in sales volume in 
March meant that, in the last 
three months, volume was up 
by 1.7 per cent on the previous 
three months, 

months credit was down by 3 
per cent 

There was a 7 per cent 
decline in fixed sum credit 
from finance houses, mainly 
reflecting conditions in the car 
marker Advances on bank 
credit cards, not seasonally 
adjusted, fell by 4 per cent 
over the period, while 
retailers’ credit, including in- 
store credit cards, rose by 1 per 

The total of new credit 
advanced on hire purchase, 
bank and retailers' credit 
cards, and in other consumer 
credit arrangements, fell to 
£2.365 million in May from 
April's record level of £2.74 1 
million. In the last three 

At the end of May. amounts 
outstanding to finance houses, 
other specialist consumer 
credit institutions and retail- 
ers. totalled £21.994 million. 2 
per cent up on three months 

The pattern of retail sales 
shown up by the official 
figures has been criticised in 
some quarters, and conflicts 
with that indicated by the 

FT/ Confederation of Brit- 
ish Indusuy monthly survey 
of the distribution trades. 

But, according to a spokes- 
man from the Department of 
Trade & Industry . “The final 
index is based on sales returns 
from around 3.000 retailers 
whose total turnover is over 
half of all retail sales in Great 
Britain. The index is far more 
comprehensive and soundly 
based than the FT/CBI survey 
which seeks merely qualita- 
tive information." 

The official figures show 
that in the latest Lhree months, 
clothing and footwear safes 
were very strong - up by 7 per 
cent in volume, while sales of 
household goods rose by 4 per 
cent. Sales by non-food retail- 
ers in total increased by 3.4 
per cent while food retailers 
saw only a 0.4 per cent sales 

buys West 
End site 

By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 
- Correspondent 

The Prudential Assurance 
Company, competing against 
nine other potential develop- 
ers, won the bid to buy a two 
acre freehold site in 
Knightsbridge, London, for 
over £35 million. 

The three office buildings, 
situated opposite 

Knightsbridge Barracks in 

London's West End, were 
developed in 1958 and total 
290.000 sq ft of space. The 
properties were sold by the 
British Gas Staff Pension 
Scheme (Stargas Nominees) 
which bought them in 1977. 

The offices, occupied by oil 
companies, including British 
Petroleum, ' Elf Ou, and 
Texaco, produce an annual 
income of £1.32 million, al- 
though they would be worth a 
great deal more now. 

The leases expire in the

KCA makes £28m 
loss provision 

By David Young, Energy Correspondent 

KCA Drilling. Britain’s 
leading independent oil drill- 
ing contractor, has made pro- 
vision in its annual accounts 
to cover potential losses of 
£28.3 million and is to sell one 
of its two drillships as a result 
of the falling oil price. 

Sir Monty Finniston. the 
former head of British Steel 
who isnow chairman of KCA. 
told shareholders that the 
ship, the KCA Kingfisher, 
might realize S25 million 
(£16.3 million).. 

However, day hire rates for 
drilling rigs for offshore and 
onshore oil exploration are 
falling daily and several other 
drilling contractors also have 
drillships and rigs on the 
market The KCA Kingfisher 
is equipped to drill to depths 
of up to 20.000 feet in remote 

In his annual statement to 
shareholders. Sir Monty said 
that the company’s other off- 
shore mobile drilling rig. the 
KCA Sandpiper, a jack-up rig 
capable of working in the 
shallower areas of the North 
Sea and drilling to depths of 
25,000 feet, will be kepi on the 
drilling rig fleet 
KCA operates 10 onshore 

drilling rigs in the UK, Libya 

and Turkey, and three off- 
shore platform rigs in the 

North Sea. The KCA King- 
fisher will be kept on standby 
while a buyer is sought. 

Sir Monty said: "Looking to 
the future we expect the solid 
contribution from the land 
and platform drilling opera- 
tions to continue, although 
operations for expansion will 
be few and keenly contested. 

“Offshore, however, the col- 
lapse in the price of oil has 
been particularly damaging to 
the oil servicing industry. 
Many operators lave cut or 
delayed their exploration and 
development programmes for 
1986 and this has led .to a 
reduction in their drilling 

“The problem has been 
compounded by foreign drill- 
ing contractors transferring 
rigs to the North Sea from 
other areas in search of work. 

“There have already been 
signs of rationalization within 
the contract drilling industry 
— for. example through joint 
ventures and partnerships of 
what had hitherto been com- 
petitors — and in appropriate 
cases we may follow such a 
course ourselves where it is in 
the best interest of the Group. 

“An area where we have 
devoted particular attention 
to is the scope of our offshore 

Defeat for 
Evered in 
bid battle 

By Cliff Felthara 

Evered Holdings, the fast- 
expanding industrial con- 
glomerate. last night lost its 
£1 55 million battle for control 
of McKechnie Holdings, the 
Midlands engineering 

The two companies had 
been involved in a fierce 
struggle for weeks, but the big 
institutions decided to stay 
with the present management 

Dr Jim Butler, chairman of 
McKechnie. said: "I think the 
institutions began to have 
growing doubts about whether 
Evered could cope." 

Mr Peter Baring of 
McKechnie’s advisers. Baring 
Brothers, said: “When the 
institutions got eyeball to 
eyeball with the McKechnie 
people they realized that the 
team was worth backing. I 
think this shows the fashion is 
going against takeover bids." 

Evered's bid lapsed after 
gaining acceptances of 27 per 
cent to add to its own stake of 

15 per cenL The company. 

there. Mr 

headed by the brothers. Mr 
Osman Abdullah and Mr 
Raschid Abdullah, still has a 
20 per cent stake in TI. the 
industrial company, which it 
also is keen to unload. 

The three key shareholders 
to favour McKechnie were M 
& G owning 10 per cent, the 
Prudential with 5 per cent, 
and Sun Life Assurance with 
2.5 per cent. 

Profits rise 
at Garclo 

Carclo Engineering, which 
makes equipment for the tex- 
tiles industry, increased its 
profits to £3.85 million before 
tax for the year to March 31, 
up from £3.59 million for the 
previous year. 

Turnover fell from £37.3 
million to £36.6 million and

from I2p. 

At the year end, net 
bo rowings stood at £1.2 mil- 
lion or 9.3 per' cent of 
shareholders' funds.

Analysts expect sharp drop 
in money supply growth 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 

City analysts expect a sharp 
slowdown in the rate of money 
supply expansion when fig- 
ures are released early this 
afternoon. The predictions 
are, however, unusually cau- 
tions after recent big 

The consensus estimates a 
rise in sterling M3 of slightly 
Jess than J per cent in banking 
June, compared with a 3 per 
cent May rise. The 12-month 
rate of growth of sterling M3 
would then fall to about 173 
per cent, from 19.5 per cent in 
May, bnt still above the 
official 11 to IS per cent target 

Wood Mackenzie, the 
stockbroking firm, expects the 
new sterling commercial paper 
market to have had an impact 
on estimated hank lending of 
£1.7 billion in June, and is 
looking for a sterling M3 rise 
of 0.7 per cent. 

James Cape], noting that 
the forecast for banking Jane 
is particularly difficult, ex- 
pects some reversal of the May 
distortion in the “other 
counterparts" of sterling M3, 
helping to produce a rise of 
only 0.75 per cent 

The range of City expecta- 

tions for increases in sterling 
M3 in banking June runs from 
0.5 to 1.25 per cent, well below 
the increases over the past 
three mouths. 

The London Bnsiness 
School, in its July Financial 
Outlook, predicts a substantial 
slowdown in the growth of 
broad money in the coming 

It cites three reasons for 
predicting a slowdown in the 
growth rate of the sterling M3 
money measure, which is ex- 
pected to reduce its 12-month 
rateofincreaseto8per cent by 
April 1987, from 19.5 per cent 

The LBS expects inflows 
into bank accounts from the 
personal sector to drop consid- 
erably because of lack of new 
savings instruments from 'the 
banks and a reduced level of 
marketing for existing 

The third reason, says the 
LBS, is macro-economic. Be- 
cause of the declining current 
account surplus, there will 
have to be substantial net 
inflows from abroad. 

Despite the improved out- 
look for broad money growth, 
the LBS is cautious about 

interest rates in Britain and 

A unilateral cat in interest 
rates by the United States is 
unlikely, the report says, be- 
cause of dollar weakness and 
the threat of higher US 

“Against this world back- 
ground. we are cautious about 
UK rates. We believe that 
there is some scope for a 
limited narrowing of the gap 
that currently exists between 
UK real interest rates and the 
average of onr competitors. 
However, there are several 
reasons why this narrowing is 
likely to take place only 
slowly, spread over the next Kg 
months," says the LBS report 

Principal among these rea- 
sons is the LBS’S expectation 
that economic growth will be 
strong without interest rate 
arts, and that the Government 
will attempt to time rate cute to 
produce a favourable pre- 
election profile for retail price 

Base rates are expected to 
average just under 10 per cent 
in the current financial year, 
implying a small reduction 
later in the year. Jailing to 8 
per cent in 1987-88.

Dilemma of linking 
pay and profits 

With the Treasury putting the finish- 
ing touches on its proposals for profit- 
related pay — a green paper will be 
published next week — it was appro- 
priate that Professor Martin 
Weitzman, the Massachusetts In- 
stitute of Technology economist most 
associated with profit sharing, was in 

Professor Weitzman, invited over 
by the Employment Institute to make 
the case for profit-sharing, did so very 
capably in a House of Commons 
committee room last nighL Like the 
true seminar veteran, he has thought 
of and answered most of the objec- 
tions to his ideas before his oppo- 
nents. Treasury ministers would do 
well to keep a copy of his speech in a 
drawer beside the bed, in anticipation 
of the debate ahead. The green paper 
on profit-related pay, a close relative 
of profit-sharing, will raise the same 
sort of questions. 

The Treasury, it appears, has 
already answered one question, which 
emerged over the weekend. There will 
be no rigid requirement, in the green 
paper proposals, for an 80 per cent-20 
per cent split between fixed and profit- 
real ted pay. Rather, the scheme is 
intended to be flexible, and capable of 
being tailored to fit different 

The Weitzman case, as presented 
last night, is an attractive one. 
Conventional forms of macro-eco- 
nomic policy, be they Keynesian or 
monetarist, have proved ineffective at 
coping with the simultaneous con- 
dition of high unemployment and fast 
rising prices. 

This ineffectiveness may be no fault 
of the policies, or the theory lying 
behind them. Rather, he said, it is the 
institutional structure, present in 
most Western European economies, 
and particularly so in Britain, which 
produces a bias towards unemploy- 
ment: in the jargon, a high non- 
accelerating inflation rate of 

There are many ways of dealing 
with this bias, as Professor Weitzman 
clearly recognized. He cited tax-based 
incomes policies, employee owner- 
ship and multi-tiered pay systems 
(different pay levels for, say, new and 
old workers). But profit-sharing, or 
some variant of it may be the only 
one which is also consistent with 
enterprise and initiative. 

The “bottom line” of his ideas is: 
"The profit-sharing variant of a 
capitalist firm is a viable, healthy 
organism that has passed the market 
test with flying colours. 

“If European-style economies were 
to encourage this species to take hold 
by granting significant tax concessions 
to profit-sharing income, it is difficult 
to see how any great harm could be 
done and easy to see how a lot of good 
might come of it.” 

There is a nagging doubt about the 
emergence of profit-related pay into 
the policy debate in Britain. It is not 
possible to say, with any degree of 
confidence, that linking a proportion 

of pay to profits would, on its own, 
make significant inroads -into 

It has to be seen as a means of 
improving the efficiency of, not 
replacing, conventional macro-eco- 
nomic policy. Thus, as Professor 
Weitzman said last night, expan- 
sionary policies would be needed to 
“gobble up” the unemployed, once a 
scheme was in place. 

The Chancellor, one suspects, sees 
profit-related pay as an alternative, 
and not complementary to a policy of 
expanding the economy out of 

CAP in the air 

The lunacies of the Common Agri- 
cultural Policy and its like are familiar 
to frustrated policymakers at home 
and to connoisseurs of Euro-Ameri- 
can trade skirmishes. Likewise 
development economists know well 
enough how developing countries 
have treated traditional agricultural 
export sectors as milch-cows to fi- 
nance pet industrial projects and 
appease the urban populace. Fre- 
quently, they have ruined the natu- 
rally strongest part of their economies 

The World Bank has done a useful 
service in bringing these two together 
in a single and devastating study of 
costly worldwide meddling. For the 
combination amounts to a scarcely 
believable misallocation of resources . 

“What is perhaps most surprising” 
Anandarup Ray and his co-authors 
cooliy note “is that it is the developing 
world which, on the whole, discrimi- 
nates against its formers, even though 
they account for large shares of gross 
domestic product and export earn- 
ings. And it is the industrial countries 
which provide subsidies to agri- 
cultural production, even though their 
formers account for small shares of 
GDP and employment”. 

Even if the damage to world trade 
and to the growth of developing 
countries is recognized, however, it is 
going to be extremely hard to co- 
ordinate international agreements to 
start dismantl i ng the edifices of 
distortion, if only because agricultural 
policies are so important domes- 

Here, the developing countries are 
making a better fist of putting their 
own house in order than the European 
Community, North America and 
Japan. Lessons have undoubtedly 
been learnt from the success of Asian 
agriculture, mostly recently in China, 
and the contrasting failures in West 
Africa, the Caribbean and South 
America. Pressure from the the IMF 
or the World Bank has also helped 
break down food subsidies and hope- 
lessly damaging state marketing that 
has pushed so many formers off the 
land or into illegal parallel markets. 

Nearer home, prospects for reform 
look bleaker. Mrs Thatcher failed to 
exploit leverage over the European 
Community budget to bring much 
reform to the CAP and Britain has 
gone along the quota road.

Cocoa talks key to other pacts Farm suDDort policies 

ralks in Geneva this week biggest producer, announced !■ . i nations' hand has been ^ * ST AT ■»- 

Talks in Geneva this week 
about a new international 
cocoa agreement have an 
importance stretching be- 
yond the commodity which 
provides us with the raw 
material for our after-dinner 
mints and bedtime drinks. 

If the discussions succeed 
Third World producers of 
commodities can still cling to 
the hope that workable 
ageements can be established 
to regulate the volatile mar- 
kets which hold the virtual 
power of life and death over 
their economies. 

If they fail it may be the 
final straw for the whole 
concept of commodity pacts 
which was dealt a savage 
blow by the collapse of the 
international tin agreement 
last year. 

The buyers' markets that 
have prevailed in most com- 
modities for the past six years 
would remain with little in 
the way of a countervailing 
force from a binding agree- 
ment that would be obeyed 
bv producers and consumers. 

'Optimism on reaching ac- 
cord in Geneva has waned 
and waxed since the fourth 
round of negotiations col- 
lapsed in March. At that time 
the Ivory Coast, the world's 

biggest producer, announced 
it would not be joining the 
pact which is planned to 
.come into force in October. 
As consuming countries were 
quick to point oul a pact 
without the Ivorians would 
be "as good as useless.” 

The Ivory Coast is not a 
member of the current agree- 
ment but. as the pact has no 
effective teeth, its absence 
makes little difference. No 
cocoa has been added to the 
price-support stockpile since 
1982 when iis manager ran 
out of money. 

However, on top of the 
100.000 tonnes in the stock, 
the International Cocoa 
Organisation (ICO) has built 
up reserves of more than 
S200 million (£2.3 million), 
virtually all funded by its 
producing members through 
a 2 cent a lb levy on exports. 

Such strength is indeed rare

among commodity groups, 
and ICO sources are quick to 
point out that a new agree- 
ment would have a far greater 
chance of being effective than 
the late lamented tin pact, 
which had to end when the 
bankers to its buffer stock 
cried that enough was 

The source of the cash 

reserves has also given the 
Cocoa Producers’ Alliance, 
particularly the West African 
members, a strong political 
argument to arm-twist Abi- 
djan back to the conference 

Getting the Ivory Coast 
delegates to Geneva, howev- 
er. is one thing: persuading 
them to sign on the dotted 
line of a new agreement is 
likely to be far harder. 

The main point of differ- 
ence in March was the mini- 
mum price level at which new 
purchases would be added to 
the buffer stock. The produc- 
ers wanted price support to 
begin at 1 13 cents a lb; the 
consumers, led by the Euro- 
pean Community nations, 
sought a level some IS cents 

If anything the importing 

nations' hand has been 
strengthened over the past 
four months, and the chances 
of a compromise seem slim- 
mer. Cocoa prices, which 
stood at 102 cents before the 
Ivory Coast walk-out. have 
since declined almost contin- 
uously and now stand around 
85 cents. . ' 

In these circumstances the 
consuming countries which, 
in any case, want a mecha- 
nism that allows the floor 
price to fall if market condi- 
tions dictate, can call the 
shots and let the finee market 
take over if they fail to get 
what they want. 

Cocoa traders in London 
are fairly well resigned to this 
week's talks reaching no con- 
clusion. although they say 
there is more optimism in the 
United States. 

Current prices on the Lon- 
don Commodity Exchange of 
around £1300 a tonne dis- 
count failure, although if the 
status quo continues further 
fails appear likely. 

If an agreement is reached, 
a short-term rally of between 
£80 and 100 a tonne can be 
expected, along with the 
heartfelt thanks of the world’s 
commodities producers.

But the Bank’s study of| 
trade and pricing policy in 
world agriculture concludes, 
that only about half this cost 
benefits producers. 

Most of the benefit ends up 
in higher land prices, rents or 
artificial values for production 
quotas, rather than helping 
farmers' incomes in the long 
run. And that makes it much 
harder for people to enter the 
industry- . , 

Rich countries agricultural 
policies also hurt arming in 
virtuallv all developing coun- 
tries. Regimes such as the 
European Economic Commu- 
nity's Common Agricultural 
Policy have raised output 
uneconomical^ at home by 
maintaining artificially high 
prices which reduce the de- 
mand for food. The Bank 
estimates that producer prices 
in industrial countries now 
average 40 per cent above 
world prices, a far bigger gap 
than in the Sixties. 

This combination has de- 
pressed free market prices, 
especially for the developing 
countries, because the indus- 
trial countries also import less 
and subsidize their own ex- 
ports. even undercutting de- 
veloping countries' fanners in 
their own markets. 

Protection has therefore di- 
rectly cut exports and output 
in developing countries where 
agriculture is much more vital 
to economic growth. In low 
income developing countries, 
agriculture accounts for 3S-40 
per cent of gross domestic 

Policies designed to stabi- 
lize domestic prices also lead 
to much greater fluctuations 

Perverse policies towards agriculture and trade in 
food in both industrial and developing countries lead 
to a misallocation of resources, the World Bank 
argues in a study of agriculture In its 1986 world, 
development report. As a result, “there is too much 
production in industrial countries and too little m 
developing conn tries,” the report says. This stifles 
economic growth in developing countries because 
agriculture is much more Important to them. The 
next round of negotiations of the General Agreement 
on Tariffs and Trade (Gatt) provides the opportunity 
to break this cycle by liberalizing trade in food. Free 
trade would benefit industrial and developing 
countries by $64 billion a year, the Bank es tim a t es, 
and benefit Third World agriculture far more than 
trade preferences, international commodity agree- 
ments or other special measures.

complexity of policies in the

technical progress, however; 
governments have attempted, 
to limit the amount of milk

The support regimes have 
become ever more complex

Third World ‘must exploit advantages’ 

Inefficient tax, subsidy and 
public spending policies in 
developing countries have 
centred on agriculture because 
It is the biggest component in 
output, because food costs are 
the most vital ingredient in 
urban poverty, and because 
governments wanted to dis- 
criminate in favour of manu- 
facturing industry, the World 
Bank argues. 

Third World countries have 
damaged their own farming 
industries, where they have a 
natural trade advantage, as 
much as industrial coon tries 
have artificially supported rel- 
atively unimportant fanning 

Fanning productivity has 
risen so fast in industrial 
countries as a result that the 
average farm family produces 
enough surplus food for 50 
other people, whereas the

income developing countries

“Government intervention

Sir Jack Welling s, CBE, Chairman said: 

Our manufacturing companies improved their results 
substantially but a large part of the improvement was 
eliminated by a complete reversal to a loss in our ferrous 
scrap trading activities and heavy losses in South East 
Asia. Nevertheless. I am glad to be able to report an overall 
improvement in trading profit before tax for the year. This 
was achieved despite the considerable strengthening in the 
£ and an unprecedented increase in Product Liability 
Insurance premiums. 

The highlight of the year was the purchase of the 
Industrial Distribution Group of Clausing Corporation and 
a new consolidated office, warehousing, manufacturing 
facility is near completion on their ate in K alamazoo. 

Our exports increased by 12? and the export 
percentage of our manufactured goods was well in excess of 

We look forward to an overall improvement in our 
efficiency and an improvement in results over last year.

Such policies reduce pro-

ers from investing in higher 
productivity. Discrimination 
against agriculture has left 
sub-Saharan Africa as the 
only region in the developing 
world that has foiled to expand 
food production as fast as

As a whole, agricultural 
exports have declined from 
nearly half of developing

that agriculture should be

Fears on US economy hit shares 

By Michael Clark 

-As the cost of buying televi-

rebaWe, the colour television 

mnpl market has been in 

Despite some offset from 
video recorders, the total of 
rental subscribers has been 
ailing at an estimated 5 per 
cent a year. As a result, rental 

: companies can be bought on 
multiples of 12 months' in- 
come and, as the business is 
fragmented, there are plenty 
°f acquisition opportunities. 

This is the business back- 
ground against which the 
Electronic Rentals Croup op- 
erates. It owns the Visionhire 
TV rental chain, the third 
biggest in Britain, and yester- 
day it announced its prelimi- 
nary results for the year to 
Mart* 31. 

The 30 per cent improve- 
ment m turnover to £254 
million was largely because of 
the acquisition of Carousel, a 
TV- rental company bought 
mom Dixons, and Telefusion. 
However, pretax profits, 
which rose only 8 per cent to 
£l 6.5 million, were hit by 
significantly higher interest 
costs. These rose by 25 per 
cent to £12.5 million on 
borrowings which lopped 
£100 million at the year end, 
134 per cent of shareholders' 

Borrowings are up because 
of the £45 million spent on 
acquisitions, but cash flow is 
such that £30 million can be 
repaid in this financial year 
on the assumption that there 
are no further acquisitions. 
But this cannot be ruled out. 

The group plans to use the 
steady cash flows from rental 
to- broaden its business base 
in four main areas. It will buy 
more rental companies, build 
on its embryonic chain of 
electrical retail stores which 
came with Teiefiision, ex- 
pand its non-consumer elec- 
tronics. business which 
should earn £3 million pretax 
this year largely because of 
Telefusion, and build up its 
domestic appliance service 
company, Serviscope. 

Of the 200 or so retail 
outlets acquired with 
Telefusion. 100 have been 
closed and 30 have been 
turned into Visionhire shops. 
The best 67 are being retained 
to form the basis of the chain 
retailing domestic appliances, - 
azidthis is expected to make a 
loss of some £25' million in 
! 1986-87 as the group clarifies 
I its strategy in this area. 

Richard Budgets, analyst at 
Greenwell Montagu & Cb_ 
forecasts that, as the rest of 
Teltfusion is integrated into . 
the group and the interest 
charge falls, pretax profit will 

nse by nearly £4 million to 
£20 million in 1986-87. This 
puts the shares on a prospec- 
tive multiple of nearly 14. 

The retail business will 
make Electronic Rentals 
much more seasonal. As sales 
will be biased towards Christ- 
mas, first-half profits m 1 986- 
87 are likely to be flat, and 
this leaves only the 7.5 per 
cent yield to buoy the shares. 


While most of the building 
contractors* shares have been 

the benefits Slower interest 
rates and increased Govern- 
ment spending, shares in 
AMEC have quietly slid 
backwards. At yesterday's 
price of 253p, they are 44p 
below their April high. 

Shareholders' fortunes 
could, however, be about to 
change. Interim results - due 
in late August — should 
confirm profit forecasts of 
more than £30 million, before 
tax, for the full year, up from 
£25.5 million. 

The level of dividend pay- 
ments will attract special 
attention, as the shares tend 
to be sold as an income stock. 
If the company opts to main- 
tain last year's cover, the total 
payout for the year could rise 
from lip to nearly 13p, 
suggesting a prospective yield 
of 7.2 per cent — more than 
twice the market average. 

That assumes earnings this 
year will rise from 24. 8p to 
top 29p a share. 

Having maintained the 
payout last year, when earn- 
ings fell, the company may, 
however, not want to increase 
the dividend in line with 
earnings. But even a lp 
increase, to 12p, would give a 
yield of 6.7 per cent . 

That income should keep 
most investors happy while 
the new management team 
prove themselves. Mr John 
Early has recently joined as 
finance director and Mr Rudi 
Kisjes, whose appointment 
was announced in January, 
has taken over responsibility 
for the international contract- 
ing business. In addition. Dr 
Norman Franklin, who has 
extensive experience in the 
nuclear industry, is a non- 
executive director. 

Their arrival may not put a 
growth tag on the company’s 
shares, but they should con- 
tribute to a higher profile for 
the company in future. 


Stock market fashions are 
fast changing. Just as 
mega bids seem to have lost 
some their appeal, pension 
surpluses, which were hot 
property with investors not 

so long ago, have fallen out 
favour. Yesterday DRG re- 
vealed that it had a surplus in 
its pension fund, of probably 
more than £15 million, but its 
shares fell 2p to 298p in 

The company is using £5 
million of the surplus to 
improve benefits to those 
pensioners whose income 
was eroded by the high 
inflation of the 1970's. 

Shareholders will however 
be more interested in the 
benefit to profits, amounting 
to £2 million a year. The 
actuaries say the surplus is 
large enough to bear reduced 
contributions for five years 
but the company takes a 
more cautious line, promis- 
ing a review in two years' 

Assuming the boost to 
profits persists for five years, 
the news should theoretically 
add 6p to the share price, 
assuming a 35 per cent tax 

The company says the 
proposed accounting treat- 
ment. such that reduced con- 
tributions are chaiged against 
profits, has been cleared with 
its auditors. 

That the market price did 
not react as theory dictates 
suggests that investors have 
become worried about the 
quality of profits in such 
circumstances. What will 
happen to profits at the end of 
five years? 

Acquisitions- will have 
made the £2 million annual 
benefit pale into significance 
in five years' time. Yesterday 
DRG announced the acquisi- 
tion of a rigid plastics packag- 
ing business from Hercules of 

This purchase gives the 
company a US manufactur- 
ing base and the right to sell 
Hercules' technology round 
the world. DRG has been the 
British licensee for the past 
seven years. 

While the company clearly 
has great potential, it current- 
ly makes a loss. In addition 
DRG is paying over asset 
value for the business. 

DRG also announced yes- 
terday the sale of Multiple 
Packaging for £1.4 million 
cash and of Barratt photo- 
copying business for £1.5 
million. The Bristol carton 
business however is still up 
for sale. 

In all DRG has spent a net i 
£11 million on acquisitions 
since its £33.5 million rights 
issue last year. The stock 
market clearly wants the 
company to spend in style. 

If megabids have truly 
gone out of fashion, the 
company’s approach might 
find more support in the near 

Investors were in a despon- 
dent mood on both sides of 
the Atlantic yesterday and 
dealers fear share prices could 
open sharply lower when trad- 
i ing resumes on the London 
stock market today. 

The growing threat of an 
economic recession in the 
United States has started to 
unsettle investors in both New 
York and London and intro- 
duced an element of reality 
back into share prices. Dealers 
reported persistent selling 
throughout the day in Lon- 
don. which gathered pace after 
hours with the Dow Jones 
industrial average more than 
44 points down in the first 
few hours trading on Wall 

American economists are 
talking about economic stag- 
nation and the current weak- 
ness of dollar against the 
Japanese yen has only served 
to compound the market's 

This all proved too much 
for British investors, already 
worried by the prospects of a 
Labour victory at the next 
General Election and 
warnings about the renational- 
ization of those companies 
which have been privatized by 
the Conservatives. 

As a result of this, shares 
like BT, which suffered its 
biggest one-day fall since it 
came to market, were badly 
hit. BT ended the day 18p 
down at 198p, wiping about 
£L.200 million from its market 
capitalization. There were re- 
ports in the weekend press 
that investors would only 
receive the 130p they original- 

ly paid for the shares if Labour 
is returned to power. 

The rest of the equity 
market continued to lose 
ground throughout the day 
wiih the FT 30 share index 
falling 8.7 to 1.347.8- The 
broader-based FT-SE 100 
tumbled by 1 8.4 to K63I.0; 

Government securities were

The reason for the dullness 
was revealed when the group 
announced that Mr Brian

the board and had placed his 
entire holding of 1.458 million 
shares in the market through 
the company's broker. Phillips

New York (Agencies) — 
Share prices tumbled in early 
trading yesterday in fntures- 
related selling. 

This selling ignored the 
strength of the bond market, 
partly because of the opinion 
that die completion of Japan's 
elections could foreshadow co- 
ordinated lower interest rates. 

Technical weakness also 
contributed to the decline. 
Declining shares outnumbered 
rising ones by five to one on a 

volume of 18 million shares. 

The Dow Jones industrial 
average fell by 20.95 points to 
1,879.92. Some traders had 
been expecting the market to 
react to its recent rise to 
records, since the US 
economy's weakness may not 
justify die gains. 



9 Wall Street was dosed on 
Friday for Independence Day. 
The prices below are for 
Thursday's trading.

The second biggest computer 
company in the world, formed 
by the recent merger of Sperry 
and Burroughs, is now five 
weeks old. Its proud parents 
were in London last week to 
reveal what they hope the new 
company will be when it grows 

Burroughs chairman Mi- 
chael BJumenthal and Sperry 
president Joseph Kroger, both 
on its board, said they did not 
know what the merged prod- 
uct of the two $5 billion 
companies would be called, 
but they were confident it 
would continue to support its 
users and make money for its 

They also acknowledged the 
difficulties facing the new 
venture and talked about how 
they would cut out much of 
the “duplication" in the mar- 
keting and manufacturing 

would be maintained . “m 
perpetuity”. Mr Blumenthal 
and Mr Kroger said they have 
spent a good deal of time 
during ihe last few weeks 
meeting representatives of 
user groups to reassure them 
that their line of mini and 
mainframe computers will 
continue to be fully supported. 

Mr Kroger said they would 
also be looking to co-ordinate 
the activities of the new 

company by “rationalizing 
some of its operations world- 

He addedr “We will look at 
each country individually and 
do what is necessary and 
suitable in each country He 
also denied suggestions that 
either one of the old compa- 
nies would have undue influ- 
ence over the operation of the 
new combined enterprise. 

“We are going to operate on 
a partnership basis." 

Michael Blumenthal, chair- 
man of Bnrrougbs 

stuctures of the two compa- 
nies. “We are doing something 
which has never been done 
before," said Mr BlumenthaL 
They both emphasized, how- 
ever, that existing computer 
“architectures" and products 
from Sperry and Burroughs 

industries, while Burroughs is 
best at serving the financial 
and banking communities. 

Mr Blumenthal said: “Our 
high degree of specialization 
allows the companies to be.: 

He added, however, that the 
operations of the two- compa- 
nies suggest that they, wiuifil

■ Which way should I go? I 
had nearly derided to swap my 
IBM compatible personal 
computer for a shiny equiva- 
lent to the AT model from 
IBM. However. I am now 
wondering whether to add bits 
to my existing machine. 

The IBM PC AT and its 
, equivalents are an attractive 
.proposition. The 80286 chip 
which drives these products 
does go faster. You are clearly 
involved in needing a capa- 
cious disc store and if you do 
not change machines you 
could add a filing disc of about 
10 megabytes in size by using 
one your “slots" at the back of 
the basic machine. If you still 
have spare slots you could also 
add a card that plugs in an 
80286 with its own memory. 

While it is always pleasant 
to use a well engineered and 
more powerful product, it is 
true that most applications 
being used on the 80286 (ail to 
exploit its design. At first 
glance I would stick to old 
trusty for a while. 

The use of telephone lines 
to send and receive data seems 
to be very slow. It is, however, 
much faster when using pri- 
vate lines as many big firms 
do. Will the individual ever be 
able to nse high speeds from

do I go? 

There is quite a network of 
people using small computers 
for the work you are doing 
manually. The key thing is to 
use a good accounting package 
and to make sure of not being 
vulnerable to loss of data. 

The local political organiza- 
tions as well as other volun-

■ Prodded by the younger 
members of the family we are 
about to enter 16-bit comput- 
ing and all that The 8-bit stuff 
Started about six years ago and 
the investment, including soft- 
ware, has totalled about 
£2300. The new kit is just 
.about as cheap as the old 
hardware was. But it looks as 
if die software costs may 
double. Is this typical? 

Trendy business packages — 
the superspreadsheet style and 
some database software — 
have tended to surge in rela- 
tive cost when placed against 
the computer they run on. 

On the other hand, there are 
firms such as Borland Interna- 
tional which have brought 
“posh" programming lan- 
guages down to the mass 
market I think that some 
database software is drifting, 
towards higher volume sales 
and lower outlays per user. 

Most decent word proces- 
sors are still priced at absurd 
levels which reveals that many 
people who can write cannot 
drive a mean-minded bargain.

It is partly a question of cost 
The modems, which translate 
the data and adapt it to 
telephone signalling practice, 
are cheapest at low speeds. It 
is also true that by working at 
slower speeds of data trans- 
mission and reception the user 
will probably find the whole 
process .fairly reliable. Many 
experienced users of ordinary 
dialled lines for data transmis- 
sion prefer the lower speeds 
because they seem robustly 
resistant to data garbling. 

However, working at 1,200 
bits a second is common, and 
British Telecom now offers a 
modem which will work on 
dial-up connections at 9,600 
bits a second. This is more 
than 150 words a second and if 
it proves to be fuss free in use 
it may well prove to be the 
way to remove your irritation. 
The speed can be used simul- 
taneously for both transmis- 
sions and reception.

By Nicholas Soames 

a «Jvances in com- 
fhi JL lcchnol °8y are testing 
™ robust quality oT 

English law to its limits. There 
l '"creasing number of 
areas which are causing equal 
concern to businesses, com- 
puter buffs and the legal 
profession itself so much that 
they could be hindering the 
wider acceptance of computer 

Among the major areas that 

have been singled out as 
needing urgent attention are 
privacy, copyright law. the 
legal implications of a host of 
subjects raised by electronic 
mail and even broader inter- 
national problems such as the 
jurisdiction in international 
computer crime. 

“Computer technology is 
like a new actor on the stage — 
and one who is in danger of 
tripping up everyone else,” 
said Alistair Kelman. a barris- 
ter and author of two books on 
computers and the law. “It is 
quite clear that some parts of 
the play need to be re-written 
before a disaster occurs.” he 
says. Even where parts have 
been re-written they can often 
be inadequate and out of date 

by the lime they appear on the* 
statute book. 

Such, argues Mr Kelman. is 
the case with the Data Protec- 
tmn Act brought in to comply 
with the Council of Europe's 
recommendations. It indi- 
cates that not loo much data 
on individuals must be kept 
and that data must be kept for 
only a reasonable length of 

“The difficulty is that the 
current legislation does not 
say how much is too much 
and how long is too long,” said 
Mr Kelman. “For instance, 
there is no indication bow the 
keeping of criminal convic- 
tions on computer should 
interact with the Rehabilita- 
tion of Offenders Acl” 

The whole q uestion of com- 
puter copyright is equally 
complex. One of the decisions 
that must be made in the 
1980s is bow the links that 

allow one computer system to 
work with another should be 
handled. A manufacturer de- 
signing equipment to add to 
an existing computer system 
marketed by someone else 
may need to copy certain 
proprietary information. 
Should the owners of the 
existing system be given the 
power to exclude others from 
copying that information? 

The ownership of output 
from computer databases can 
be another problem. If. for 
example, someone writes a 
medical diagnosis manual in 
book form and someone else 
uses an optical reader to load 
it into a computer and then 
uses it to write an expert 
system program which builds 
on the original material — who 
owns the copyright? 

Mr Kelman feels strongly 
that there must be a balance 
between a justifiable return on

amateur motor-racing series:

Computers Historic GT 
Championship. Each event 
can be co-sponsored, at a 
nominal cost, by an 
Ericsson or Farat dealer. The 
B19 car, driven by racing 
driver Chris Aylett. will be 
raced at Brands Hatch, 
Sllverstone, Outton Park, 
Thruxton and Donington. 
including one of the British 
Grand Pnx events. 

The Chevron B19, built in 
1970, raced in that year’s 
European two-litre 
championship. It has since 
been modified and was 
raced throughout the 1970s. 
The car was completely 
rebuilt before the 1985 
Championships and came 
third in its class. It is powered 
by a Ford Cos worth 1850cc 
FVC engine, which develops 
up to 275 bhp. The car can 
exceed 165mph.

invention and investment and 
a refusal to let the law stifle 
creative endeavour. Practical- 
ly speaking, the law faces an 
almost impossible task in 
trying to keep up with the 
implications of the wide- 
spread use of electronic mail. 

Legislation is now being 
prepared to deal with the 
electronic transfer of funds, 
involving, among other 
things, the legal view on 
digital signatures. The validity 
of contracts made via elec- 
tronic mail, for example, can 
sometimes be questioned. 

Though parallels can be 
drawn with contracts made by 
telex, it is not exact Electronic 
mail can be sent to hundreds 
of people at once using pre- 
stored lists. So what guaran- 
tees are there that what has 
been sent has been received, 
read and agreed to? 

There can also be problems 
with the ease of computer 
connections in crossing na- 
tional boundaries. If. for ex- 
ample, someone in Britain 
makes an unauthorized access 
to a foreign bank and transfers 
funds to a third country, 
where is the crime taking 
place? Current case law indi- 
cates that no crime would be 
committed in England though 
the position in Scotland is not 
so clear. 

Has the executioner been 
given another axe? 

A spotlight has focused once more on 
government-funded research and devel- 
opment in the high technotogy sector. 
"Hie powers in Whitehall, particularly the 
Cabinet Office, have long been con- 
vinced that Britain is not getting value 
for money from the £4.000 million a year 
pumped into computers, electronics and 
other high technolgy research. 

Last week a new advisory body was 
created to counsel the Cabinet Office on 
the “value" of pursuing certain areas of 

The announcement made by the chief 
scientific adviser to the Cabinet Office, 
John Fairclough, on secondment from 
IBM, has caused many ripples in the 
academic and industrial world because 
an axe appears about to foil on research 
projects, deemed to have no immediate 
commercial value. 

The creation of the new group — to be 
called the Science and Technology 
Assessment Office — has also confused 
many in the computer and electronics 
industries. The famous Information 
Technology Advisory Panel (ITAPX 
which had its greatest political influence 
in 1 982 when it led the fight to liberalize 
cable TV. was supposed to be advising 
the Government, through the Cabinet 
Office, of an overall strategy which 
should be adopted to ensure that Britain 
keeps up with its competitors. 

Recently it was replaced by the 
Advisory Council for Applied Research 
and Development (Acard). The council, 
the Government claimed but a few 
weeks ago. would play a more strategic 
role and advise it on the policies which 
should be adopted to encourage research 
and development in key areas and how 
they can best be exploited. Now govern- 
ment has commissioned another. 

Though some in high technology 
industry will consider the new 
assesssment office just another level of 
bureaucracy whose advise will be ig- 
nored if disliked by the Government, 
others consider it an indicator that 
government funds for research and 
development are about to be curtailed. 

The new office would then be the 
primary cost-cutting vehicle. 

The creation of the assessment office 

An assessment 
been created 




By Bill Johnstone 

Technology Correspondent 

was disclosed last week by John 
Fairclough while giving evidence to the 
subcommittee of the House of Lords on 
Science and Technology. 

The statement subsequently issued by 
the Cabinet Office contained all the 
coded said:“The function of 
the new office will be to establish a 
central capability for developing evalua- 
tion methods, for gathering consistent 
information on. and for making analyses 
of the inputs to and the outputs from 
government support for R & D 
(research and development) and for 
evaluating the contribution it makes to 
the efficiency, competitiveness and inno- 
vative capacity of the UK economy.” 

A remark by Mr Fairdough under- 
lined the rough time ahead for computer 
and electronic researchers on govern- 
ment-funded programmes if they cannot 
convince their political masters of an 
immediate benefit to the UK economy. 

Said Mr Fairclough:” I see this as a 
very important initiative, in giving the 
Government as a whole a much more 
effective way of looking at how its R & D 
activities relate to its economic objec- 
tives. It will naturally take some time for 

the new office to find its feet and 
establish its working relationships within 
Whitehall, but I am sure that it will fairly 
rapidly be seen as an important addition 
to the machinery of government in this 

The last phrase has made many 
1 industrialists and researchers even more 
fearful of impending cuts. Objective 
advisors to the Government they main- 
tain, should never be considered part of 
the machinery of government but di- 
vorced from it 

The assessment office is undoubtedly 
the first of a series of measures to change 
the financing and the adminstration of 
government-funded research projects. 
The Government which has never been 
a proponent of financial assistance to 
industry, has been keen on cutting back 
R & D expenditure. It has never had a 
long-term industrial strategy. 

Last year the annual review of the 
Department of Trade and Industry 
highlighted its unhappiness with the 
performance of British industry. A top 
review was underway, claimed the 
department, to evaluate major scientific 
and high technology research projects 
funded by govemmenL That spotlight 
would fall heavily on the projects funded 
through the Ministry of Defence and the 
Department of Education and Science. 

Though measures have been taken to 
exploit the commercial potential of 
Ministry of Defence research, the Gov- 
ernment is still clearly dissatisfied. For 
example, the commercial group. Defence 
Technology Enterprises (DTE), was cre- 
ated last October to exploit that research. 

The Government is right to create any 
mechanism to ensure that research 
sponsored by public money in the 
military and academic worlds finds some 
application in the civil field, if possible. 
The Americans and the Japanese have 
for more efficient ways to get the results 
of such research from the laboratories on ■ 
to the shopfloor.The techniques used to 
such good effect by the Americans and 
the Japanese should be adopted but the 
Government's research review must not 
be an excuse to condemn high-risk 
projects nor should the new assessment 
office be created to act as its executioner.

Equity thus protected benefi- 
ciaries against breaches of trusu 
but not against the con- 
sequences of the exercise in 
good faith of powers conferred 
by the trust instrument. 

Certain of the settlements of 
which MBT was appointed 
trustee empowered MBT as 
trustee to deposit with MBT as 
banker moneys which it re- 
ceived in trust. 

The effect was also to em- 
power MBT to treat trust money 
so notionally deposited as if 
MBT was beneficially entitled to 
the trust money, just as MBT 
was entitled to treat customers 
money deposited with MBT as 
if MBT was beneficially entitled 
to that money. 

When MBT as trustee law- 
fully deposited trust moneys 
with MBT as banker, pursuant 
to the authority conferred by the 
settlement, and the amount of 
the trust fund so deposited was 
credited to a trust deposit 
account, the beneficiaries in- 
terested under the trust did not 
become entitled to any interest 
in any asset or in all the assets of 

If MBT ceased to be trustee 
and a new trustee were ap- 
pointed then it would be for the 
new trustee to decide whether to 
close the trust deposit account 
and to require MBT to pay to 
the new trustee the amount 
standing to the credit of the trust 
id the MBT trust deposit ac- 
count There would be nothing 
to trace. 

When MBT went into liq- 
uidation the beneficiaries were 
entitled to obtain and bad 
obtained the appointment of a 
new trustee in the place of MBT. 

The new trustee could only 
prove in the winding-up for the 

time to ume deposited and 
withdrawn and of the interest 

The customer acquired a 
chose in action, namely the right 
on request to payment by the 
bank of the whole orany part of 
the aggregate amount which had 
been credited or ought to be 
credited to the account 

If the bank became insolvent 
the customer could only prove 

in the liquidation as unsecured 
creditor for the amount which 
was. or ought to have been. 
credited to the account at the 
date when the bank went into 

On the other hand, a trustee 
had no power to use trust money 
for his own benefit unless the 
trust instrument expressly au- 
thorized him to do so. 

A bank trustee misappropriat- 
ing trust money for its own use 
and benefit without authority 
committed a breach of trust ana 
the beneficiaries had a chose in 
action, namely, an action 
against the bank trustee for 
damages for breach of trust and 
in addition they possessed the 
equitable remedy of tracing the 
trust money to any property into 
which it had been converted 
directly or indirectly. 

A bank in fact used all deposit 
moneys for the general purposes 
of the bank. It was impossible 
for the beneficiaries interested 
in trust money misappropriated 
from their trust to trace their 
money to any particular asset 
belonging to the trustee bank. 

But equity allowed the benefi- 
ciaries. or a new trustee ap- 
pointed in place of an insolvent 
bank trustee to protect the 
interests of the beneficiaries, to 
trace the trust money to all the 
assets of the bank and to recover 
the trust money by the exercise 
of an equitable charge over ail 
the assets of the bank.

the bank to use that money for 
the benefit of the bank in any 
wanner the bank pleased. 

The customer did not acquire 
any interest in or charge over

Bye (Inspector of Taxes) v 
Corea and Another 
Before Lord Justice Lawton, 
LonJ Justice Dillon and Lord 
Justice Woolf 
[Judgment given July 3] 

When doubts existed as to the 
proper way to charge a taxpayer 
on the profits of a transaction, 
then a tax inspector was lawfully 
entitled to make alternative 
assessments on him for both 
income fax and capital gains tax. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in dismissing an appeal by the 
taxpayers. Mr and Mis Gershon 
Coren. from the derision of Mr 
Justice Scott {The Times 
November 21. 1984; (1984) STC 
113) lhat assessments to income 
tax would not be discharged 
notwithstanding that an alter- 
native assessment to capital 
gains lax had become final. 

The inspector raised four 
assessments on the taxpayers in 
respect of certain transactions in 
commodities: three were to Case 
1. Schedule D income tax and 
the fourth was an alternative 
assessment to capital gains tax. 

The general commissioners 
upheld the taxpayers’ case that 
once the capital gains tax assess- 
ment had become final then, to 
avoid double taxation, the 
assessments to income tax in 
respect of the same sums could 
not stand. 

Mr Justice Scott allowed the 
Crown’s appeal and remitted 
the case to the commissioners 
with a direction that they con- 
tinue the hearing. The taxpayers 

Mr C. W. Koenigsberger for 
the taxpayers; Mr Andrew Park. 
QC and Mr Alan Moses for the 

said that there was no suggestion 
that the taxpayers should be 
liable for both taxes in respect of 
the one gain. 

- The alternative assessments 
were raised because of the 

inspector's doubts about the 
nature of the transactions. He 
was following a practice that, as 
far as income tax was con- 
cerned. had long been accepted 
as the way to deal with difficult 


The commissioners in their 
derision were in reality saying 
that once the assessment to 
capital gains tax had become 
final the Revenue was thereafter 
estopped from proceeding with 
the income tax assessments. 

But Mr Koenigsberger had 
accepted, rightly, that estoppel 
could not apply against the 
Revenue in this class of case: an 
inspector had a statutory duty to 
raise assessments. 

Moreover, the taxpayers 
could not complain that they 
had been unfairly dealt with. 
Once the alternative assess- 
ments had been raised the 
taxpayers had a variety of routes 
open to them by which any 
potential unfairness could be 

They had appreciated that the 
assessments were in the alter- 
native. the issue being whether 
or not they had been trading. 

They could have appealed 
against all the assessments. That 
would have been the sensible 
course but was not taken by the 

What could they now do? 
They could apply under the 
provisions of section 49(1) of 
the Taxes Management Act 
1970 to appeal the assessments 
out of time. 

The taxpayers had not been 
prejudiced procedurally by the 
capital gains tax assessment 
having become final and by 
having paid the tax under it. 
There were no merits in the 
appeal and it should be dis- 

Lord Justice Dillon and Lord 
Justice Woolf agreed.

Before Mr Justice Macpberson 
[Judgment given July 7J 
Refuse generated by the occu- 
pants of balls of residence of a 

university and collected by the 
council was not “house refuse” 

council was not “house refuse” 
within the meaning of section 72 
of the Public Health Act 1936. 

Mr Justice Macpberson so 
held in the Queen's Bench 
Division when dismissing an 

appeal by Frank Temperley 
Mattison. on behalf of the Hull 
University, by way of case 
stated from the dismissal by 
South Hunsley Beacon Justices 
of complaints preferred by the 
appellant against the council 
alleging that the council, with- 
out reasonable excuse, foiled to 
comply with a notice requiring 
them to remove house refuse 
from a ft all of residence. 

Mr Jariath Finney for the 
appellant: Mr Charles Cross for 
the council. 

PHERSON said that the case 
concerned 10 separate halls of 
residence where students could 
live. Each student had a study 
bedroom and occupied the 
room for varying periods of 

There were pantries for the 
use of students on each floor and 
dining rooms from which meals 
could be obtained. 

In the long vacation the halls 
of residence were used for 
conferences. In the short vaca- 
tions the rooms were empty 
until the students came back. 
For many years the council had 
arranged that rubbish should be 
taken away without extra 

The relevant sections were 
sections 72 to 74 of the Public 
Health Act 1936. Section 74 
allowed a local authority, where 
refuse could not properly be 
described as house refuse or 
trade refuse to make a charge for 
the removal of refuse. 

Section 343 defined a house to 
mean a dwelling house, whether 
a private dwelling bouse or noL 
The justices decided that the 
refuse from the halls of res- 
idence was not house refuse. 

It was accepted that there was 
a double test for bouse refuse as 
stated in Iron Trades Mutual 
Employers Insurance Associ- 
ation Lid v Sheffield Corpora- 
tion ([1974] 1 WLR 107): 
namely was the refuse produced 
by a house and was the refuse of 
the kind which one would 
expect a house to produce 
occupied as a house? 

There was no contest as to the 
second part. The question was 
whether the halls of residence 
could be described as houses. 

Looking at the facts of the 
case and at the authorities, the 
question was whether the build- 
ings, individually, could prop- 
erly be described as houses 
within the Acl 
I t was not possible so to 
describe those halls of residence. 
They could not properly be 
described as dwelling houses.

No golfer — not even Severiano 
Ballesteros or Jack Nicldaus — has cre- 
ated more headlines in America this 
year than Dean Beman. of the United

Those halls of residence were 
quite different from houses or 
dwelling houses and closer to 
the hostel cases than to the 
others. A hostel had been held 
not to be a dwelling house and 
neither could halls of residence.

right conclusion and the appeal

Winn and Another v Burgess 
A letter written by a bank's 
customer giving “irrevocable 

K ission” to a source of 
s income to pay that in- 
come to the bank, pursuant to 
an indication from the bank that 
it would not proceed against the 
customer if he furnished such a 
letter, constituted a contract to 
assign future chores in action 
and therefore took priority over 
a subsequent judgment against 
the customer. 

The fact that the customer 
had previously, in breach of 
trust, paid to the bank moneys 
held for the judgment creditor 
i did not render the assignment 
inequitable, since the moneys 
: assigned were not themselves

, proper dealing.

probably becanse he was just too 
nice to tame the likes of John

Rosewall bad he bothered to

Some players kept on tm i in

tale of woe was Baron von 
Cramm, who fa his 1936 final 
against the great Fred Perry, 

pulled a thigh muscle after the 
first game, which went to deuce 
10 times. He lost 6-1, 6-1, 6-0.

For every disappointed final- 
ist there have, of course, been 
two defeated semi-finalists. For 
Ramanafhan Krishmn, simply 
getting that far twice (losing to 
Fraser in I960, and Laver fa 
1961), made him a national hero 
in India. Perhaps it is just as 

used Bruce Raymond's ser- 
vices for Storm Star. Now the 
Kingsclere trainer has had to 
turn to a different jockey 
because Pat Eddery, his pre- 
ferred choice, is required to be 
at Chepstow to ride for Jeremy 
Tree, whose owners have first 
claim on his services in this 

Balding would probably 
have opted, in Eddery's ab- 
sence, lor Steve Cauthen. who 
rode Forest Flower when sbe 
won first time out at Newbury. 
But today Cauthen must be on 
Twyla for Henry Cecil 

So Tony Ives has come in 
for this lovely spare ride and 
in the absence of the other two 
I can think of no one I would 
want more to be on my horse 
because he is currently riding 
supremely well. 

My own confidence in For- 
est Flower is embedded in the 
memory of that facile victory 
at Ascot where she was always 
pulling double over her rivals. 
She has the beating of D’Azy 
on that form and I remain 
convinced that she will be able 
to outpace Twyla, having 
watched Twyla in action at 
Haydock and Newmarket 

Like Forest Flower, 
Minstrefla was also victorious 
at Royzd Ascot Her victory 
was achieved against colts in 

beth Diamond Stakes at Ascot 
later this month. 

Running for the first time 
for ten months, Petoski was 
far from disgraced in the

A strict interpretation of 
that form gives Shardari, who 
was only half a length behind 
in fourth place, an excellent 
chance of beating Petoski now 
that he will be meeting him on 
51b better terms. But I believe 
Petoski may well have im- 
proved sufficiently in the 
meantime to counter that. 

Tremblant, another who 
was successful on the corre- 
sponding day last year, will be 
in the thick of the fray once 

the Chesham Stakes run over again. His quest this time is a 
today's distance. In my opin- second triumph in the

The presence of that fast - 
filly Orient in the field for the 
Hamilton Handicap speaks 
for itself. After explaining that 
he withdrew her from 
Saturday's Trafalgar House 
Stakes at Sandown because 
she was in season, Richard 
Whitaker said that he would 
not run Orient until she was 
all right 

A line through Treasure 
Kay, who finished third in 
that blanket finish at Sandown 
and second to Orient before 
that at Ascot suggests that the 
Wetherby-based filly would 
have won on Saturday so she 
must be followed now. 

Finally, a form line through 
Nisnas, who finished a most 
unlucky third in the King 
Edward VII Stakes at Royal 
Ascot three places in front of 
Highland Chieftain, but only 
amounting to about three 
lengths, gives Eddery , a good 
chance of winning the Welsh 
Derby today on Esdale, at the 
expense of Highland Chieftan. 

Earlier in the season, before 
a virus caused problems at 
Beckham pton. Esdale ran 
Nisnas to threequarters of a 
length at Kempton. With 
Nisnas winning at Lingfield 
before acquitting himself so 
well in the Derby, prior to his 
Ascot effort, that form looks 
rock solid.

Kyverdale quickly atoned for 
her listless 1 showing at Haydock 
Park on Saturday, when she was 
a well-beaten fifth behind Pe- 


a well-beaten fifth behind Pe- 
nang Beauty, by winning the 
Wragby Maiden Fillies Stakes at 
Pontefract yesterday by a neck 
. from another Newmarket chal- 
lenger Homing In. 

Close on the heels of Polly's 
Song as the favourite headed the 
field into the short straight, 
Kyverdale struck the from at the 
furlong marker, and had to be 
kept about her business by 
Philip Robinson to just hold off 
. Homing In. The pair crossed the 
line a length and. a half ahead of 
That Certain Smile. 

Mick Ryan, who trains 
Kyverdale for a syndicate, was 
not present, but nis assistant, 
Joanne Banks, found it difficult 
to explain why the chestnut had 
run so much better tftis time. 
N SJbe was looking around her in 
the paddock at Haydock as 
though she had never been to a 
racecourse before, and was al- 
together listless.’' 

“Kyverdale took nothing out 
of herself at Haydock, and an 
hour and a half after the race I 
rang Mr Ryan and we decided 
that I should bring her straight 
on to Pontefract," she said. 


The Ian Balding-trained Forest Flower, impressive winner . 
of Royal Ascot's Queen Mary Stakes, is expected to follow 
up in today’s Cherry Hinton Stakes at Newmarket 

Boot Polish put up a 
devasling performance in the 
Lin Pac Sprint Handicap, and 
now goes for the £12.000 Tote

Joel’s dispersal sale 

The Princess of Wales' Royal Hunt Cup winner. Pa-

Blinkered first time 

NEWMARKET!: 4.45 Bertie Wooster. 
CHEPSTOW: 3.15 Dancing Sarm. 

Jim Joel one of the leading 
racehorse owners for many 
years, is selling all his mares 
and three-year-old fillies fa 
training, at the Newmarket 
December Sales later this year. 

The 9 1 -year-old owner has 
made this derision because of 
failing eyesight and as a result is 
unable to work on the pedigrees 
or supervise the running of his 
Childwick Bury Stud, near St 
Albans. Ned Murphy, his stud 
groom, is also retiring, and Mr 
Joel feels it would be difficult to 
find a replacement. 

Mr Joel's breeding stock is 

some of the very best fa the 
country. Amoag the mares com- 
ing under the hammer are Glass 
Slipper, who has bred the (wo 
classic wianers Light Cavalry 
and Fairy Footsteps, and fa in 
foal to the Derby winner Shirley 
Heights. Fairy Footsteps, fa also 
in foal to another Derby winner, 

Jim Joel inherited the stud on 
the death of his father in 1940. 
He has won more than 500 races 
and over £lm in prize money. 
There are no plans to sell the 
stud, and he will continue to 
have horses in training. 

Only three of the 14 runners 
were without a chance a furlong 
from home. Idle Times was the 
first to head the pacemaker, but 
she was relegated to fifth in a 
tremendous finish as Nicky 
Con notion produced Boot Pol- 
ish to win by a neck from Af 
Trui. who was threequarters of a 
length ahead of Green Ruby. 

Another Ascot failure. 
Munaasib. who finished down 
the field in the Coventry Stakes, 
returned to winning form and 
initiated a double for the 
Lambourn trainer Peter 
Walwyn. and his jockey Paul 
Eddery, when he took the 
Spindrifler Sprint Stakes by one 
and a half lengths from 
Wensleydaiewarrior. Turin h.

Walwyn and Eddery.

Another hundred and 

another batting 
milestone for Boycott 



By Peter Marson 

The machine that is Geof- 
frey Boycott was running 
smoothly at Acklam Park, 
Middlesbrough, yesterday, 
and henceforth this little 
ground will have a special 

_I . hi'rtnni 

place in Yorkshire's history, 
for it was here that Boycott 
completed another distin- 
guished chapter, by making 
his ISOth century. 
W R Hammond will have 
been the last among modem 
players to have made the 
assent to this rather special 
peak. Beyond lie E.H. 
Hendren ( 1 70) and J.B. Hobbs 

As Boycott moved ahead 
yesterday, leaving Herbert 
Sutcliffe in his wake in so 
doing, Hampshire's Philip 
Meade appears as the next 
giant in Boycott's sights, 
though this can be seen to be a 
relatively easy target, standing 
just three hundreds away. 
After that there is a fairly long 
jump before he can draw up 
alongside Hammond, and his 
total of 167. But Boycott 
being Boycott and his ambi- 
tion being what it is. who 
knows, it might all be a thing 
of the past in two or three 
years time. 

In the matter of hundreds, 
his average since he made his 
first appearance for Yorkshire 

in 1962 has been consistent 
not to say to a degree, aston- 
ishing. at four per season 
along the course of 24 seasons 
to 1977, the year he reached 
his 100th hundred Over the 
las t nine years. Boycott has 
moved up a gear to average 
five, and last season he was in 
especially good order in mak- 

ing six. 

ft was in late afternoon, 
yesterday, when Acklam Park 
acclaimed Boycott’s latest 
feat in which he had hit a 
dozen boundaries from 263 
balls in a stay of 315 minutes 
and by that time he had joined 
in five partnerships as York- 
shire closed in on 
Leicestershire’s total of 314. 
By the dose Yorkshire were 
270 for five with Boycott 
unbeaten on 119. 

In the morning, Whitricase 
had time only to reach his fifty 
before Sidebottom moved in 
to lake the last three wickets as 
Leicestershire moved on by 23 
runs, and in this, an introduc- 
tion. if you like to a greater 
work later on, Sidebottom 
recorded a small triumph by 
taking eight for 72, his best 
bowling performance. 

Yorkshire had been slow to 
move off, and with the score 
12, Moxon fell leg before to 
Benjamin. Metcalfe was in 

good form, though, and his 
enterprise had been in the van 
of Yorkshire’s advance by 77 
runs in the next 25 overs. 
Metcalfe fell here, leg before to 
Clift for 44, but Boycott’s 
relentless march forward con- 
tinued and shortly he eased 
past George Hirst’s 32^31 
runs to become Yorkshires 
third highest run-maker. Only 
Sutcliffe (38.56 J) and David 
Denton (33,608) stand ahead, 
ft had been some day, then, 
for Boycott, Sidebottom and 

Gloucestershire had started 
out in the morning 21 1 runs 
behind at 34 for three, with 
Wright not out 14, Bambndge 
5.- These two were going well 
and taken the score to 71 
when Bainbridge was beaten 
and bowled by Base. Curran 
came in here, and be was soon 

on his way, hitting a six and 
two fours in one over from 
Hickey. Curran’s aggression 
paid off, and overtaking his 
partner he reached his half 
century off 51 balls in 45 

At Uxbridge, Clive Radley 
called successfully for the first 
time for a long time, but in 
choosing to bat then became 
one of five wickets to foil to 
Small and Mcmillan for a 
paltry 33 runs.

prospects of a substantial lead

minutes with the loss of Ran- 
dall. Rice — to a superb, one- 
handed catch by Neale at 
cover — and Johnson. 

Newell, however, standing in 
for the injured Robinson, 
showed admirable soundness at 
the other end in these trying 
circumstances. He reached his 
fifty in three houre. and proved 
the perfect counterweight to 
Hadlee. who. after a watchful 
stan. saw off Illingworth’s left- 
arm spin with a straight-driven 
six and swept four. 

Hadlee followed with some 
meaty on-drives off the seam 
bowlers, as Nottinghamshire 
overtook their opponents' first-

The partnership was worth 97

HOVE: Sussex drew with the 
New Zealanders 

Sussex, who to eight matches 
with New Zealand teams since 
1927, have never beaten the 
touring side, were left a target of 
275 ii three hours and 35 
minutes yesterday. Their in- 
nings had just started when rain 
and bad light robbed the match 
of 55 minutes and ruined any 
chance of a result. 

The New Zealanders played 
their part in trying to salvage 
something from the game, which 
lost most of Saturday's play, by 
scoring rapidly in their second 
innings. They declared at 148 
for 4, after Edgar, the little, left- 
hander. made the only half 
century in the match. 

Green made the Sussex inten- 
tion dear by off-driving three 
fours in Barrett's opening over. 
The batsmen rejected an initial 
offer to go off for bad light hot 
play did come to a halt, though, 
when it deteriorated further, 
with Sussex 25 without loss from 
five overs. It went on to rain and 
tea was taken.

OLD TRAFFORD; Lancashire 
(22pts) hi Essex (3) by an innings 
ana 22 runs. 

For tbe second time in the 
match. Essex's seriously de- 
pleted forces proved no match 
for the pace of Pat Patterson as 
Lancashire gained their first 
home Britannic Assurance 
championship victory over the 
Southern county for 1 8 years. 

Patterson bowled quite 
beautifully to take 10 for 89 in 
the game, keeping the ball weft 
up to the bat. his pace and 
hostility too much for the 
inexperienced Essex batsmen 
with their long tail to cope with. 
He had good support. A l km and 
Watkinson both chipping in 
with valuable wickets at the 
other end to ensure there was no 
lei up for the Essex team. 

Yet even the championship 
leaders’ weakened state did not 
account for their meek surren- 
der as their last seven wickets 
went down for 19 runs in the 
course of 7 overs either side of 
lea. In the match they lost 20 
wickets in 74.2 overs, a record 
which neither Patterson nor any 
life in the wicket could wholly 
explain as Lancashire dem- 
onstrated in the morning as they 
cautiously extended iheir lead to 

Stephenson, whose survival 
during Patterson's opening blast 
was a small wonder, showed 
commendable determination 
and appeared to have battled 
through the worst as Patterson 
rested only to follow a delivery 
which left him after the first five 
balls of Allott's first over at the 
Stretford End had cost 17 runs. 

With Allot t tiring and Patter- 
son out of action. Lilley offered 
hope for more substantia] resis- 
tance. He greeted Watkinson s 
off spin with two legside sixes as 
the fourth wicket stand pm on 
63 in 18 overs. 

It was an illusory hope as 
Patterson returned before tea to 
york Lilley. If that was a blow 
for Essex, a mortal one followed 
in . the next over as Watkinson 
found a spot to make one pop at 
Border. Fowler holding a diving 
catch at silly point to be 
engulfed by his jubilant team- 
mates. Their recognition of the 
dismissal's value was justified as ' 
die remaining batsmen subsided 
without a whimper. Patterson 
claiming his four wickets for 1 1 
in 19 deliveries.

DERBY: Derbyshire, with four 
second innings wickets standing, 
lead Kent by 153 runs. 

With bai and ball. Derbyshire 
atoned yesterday for their poor 
start to this match. Martin Jean- 
Jacqucs took eight for 77 in only 
his fourth Championship 
match, and John Morris, their 
talented 2 2 -year-old batsman, 
made his second century in a 
week. So the present as well as 
the future is set foin another 50 
runs today and Kent will have 
cause for concern. 

Jcan-Jacques took all four 
Kent wickets to fall in die 
morning, breaking a stand be- 
tween Ellison and Underwood 
which had realized 70 for the 
seventh wicket from 18 overs. 
EJlison. who played some very 
correct drives off from and back 
foot, reached a half century with 
eight fours, and Marsh made a 
useful 39. Jcan-Jacques’s figures 
were the best by a Derbyshire 
bowler For Four seasons. 

Gone are the days at Derby 
when the ball got up only stump 
high. Yet gradually the pitch 
became easier to bat an. Barnett 
and Anderson began with a 
stand of 67 before Christopher 
Cowdrey had the former leg 
before in his first over and two 

runs later Alderman cut one 
back that trapped Anderson. 
Thereafter. Morris took over. 

Edgar and Coney put on 56 in 
35 mi notes before Coney was, 
stumped as he moved down the 
pitch. Blain stayed with Edgar 
until the declaration 15 mJnates 
after lunch. 

Essex’s resistance lasted as 
long as Border was at the crease 
and no longer. Coming in to 
prevent a hat trick, he did so 
stylishly driving Ailott fin* the 
first of his nine boundaries. 

For the remainder of his 67 
deliveries he was hardly trou- 
bled. appearing to be playing in 
a different game to his col- 
leagues as he cut hooked and 
drove with consummate ease. 
While he was there, 
Lancashire's lead looked a 
comfortable target; Mancunian 
pessimists — a sizeable quan- 
tity — even feared that he could 
put the game beyond 
Lancashire's grasp. 

The support, however, was 

not up to iu Once again Essex 
got off to a disastrous start as 
Patterson extracted life denied 
the Essex bowlers to soften up 
the early batsmen. This lime 
Ailott reaped the benefit a* 
Gladwin and Prichard fell m 
successive deliveries, the latter

They came from Harare and 
The Hague to watch their 
favourite sons grace the hal- 
lowed turf of Lord's yesterday. 
Sadly, the English weather, on 
its best behaviour since the 
competition began almost a 
month ago. displayed a frustrat- 
ing sense of occasion to devour 
the afternoon session and delay 
the fete of the 1986 ICC Trophy 

What play was possible was. 
nevertheless, captivating. The 
Dutch bowled with great 
distinction as Zimbabwe found 
themselves needing to graft for 
runs on a greenish wicket that 
gave some profuse assistance to 

Van Weelde. the Dutch cap- 
tain, justified his decision to 

bow) first by removing both 
Paterson and Shah in his first 

Paterson and Shah in his first 
seven overs as the ball moved 
appreciably off the seam: He 
might also have prised out 
Py croft before the rain arrived 
but Atkinson blotted his usually 
reliable slip fielding by spilling a 
low chance.

firmed yesterday that alter- 
native opposition will be found if 
MCC adhere to their derision | 
not to participate if Botham is 
included iu the Lisburn team. 

MCC raised no objections to I 
Botham's inclusion until after he j 
made derogatory remarks 
regarding the England selectors 
whom he referred to recently ata 
private dinner as “gin-slingingl

150 years in Irish cricket have 
received an assurance from 
Derek Scott, or the Irish Cricket 
Union, that future relations 
between the MCC and the ICU

Jack Bailey. MCC secretary, in 
London yesterday. 

Seven thousand tickets will go 
on sale for the match this 
morning and Lisburn will reveal 
the composition of the oppo- 
sition in a few days if MCC stick 
by their guns and proceed 
straight to Dublin for the three-

starts oa July 19. 

Women draw 

The second women’s Test 
match between England and 
India ended in a draw at 
Blackpool yesterday after the i 
Indians had given England an 
impossible fourth innings task. 
After England had declared at i 
their overnight 350 for six. India 1 
baited till lea and declared at . 
(76 for two. asking England to I 
score 253 in one hour and 20 1 
overs. Understandably the En- 
gland team bailed out time. j 

TAUNTON: Sommer, nith of/ 
second innings wickets in hand, 
are 52 runs ahead of Hampshire. 

Much play had been lost to 
rain on Saturday and though the 
weather was better yesterday — , 
quite warm, with a pleasantly 
cooling breeze — the cricket, I - 
am afraid, was for the most pan 

Somerset were bowled out for-' 
231 before lunch, the damage 
principally done by Marshall. 
The damp in the pitch, of which 
there was still a good deal; made 
him an awkward customer, but 
then he is always an awkward 
customer. He bowled better 
than Somerset batted. 

In the afternoon Hampshire 
batted, you could not say siodg- 
fly. because they kept their rate 
up to three an over, but 
un excitingly. At tea they were 
182 for four in 56 overs. . 

Terry was out quickly but the 
score had mounted to 63 when 
Nicholas was leg-before. The 
main innings were played by 
Robin Smith, who scored an 
admirable 5a aggressive, just 
what we would, once have called 
**a good knock", and by Middle- 
ton who. bom in Winchester, 
was not in fact a collegiate of 
William Wykeham and Douglas 
Jardinc and Tony Pawson and 
all that lot. I had not seen 
Middleton play before. { think, 
certainly not a long innings, but 
the young man batted tidily and 

Hampshire declared at 
5.15pm. 11 runs behind. It was a 
sensible decision and Somerset 
unless they- make a mess of their 
batting, wnll have to declare. in. 
turn. Somerset made a cautious 
stan to their second innings. 

All reports from Taunton 
should carry the comment "E 
and OE“- The scorecards, lav- 
ishly presented in a new. dull . 
and expensive magazine, are 
always inaccurate. So is the 
scoreboard, which appears to 
follow a different system of 
numeration: whether more ac- 
curate or (css it is hard to say. 
because half the figures are too 
small to be perceived by an 
ageing eye. 

The public address system has 
always been a Taunton joke and 
a recent much-hailed revision of 
its mechanism has reduced its 
quality dramatically. (And the 
baismen wear helmets, which 
often make them indistinguish- 
able. not zhat that is a particular 
fault of Taunton). These are 
rather grumpy reflections on 
what was not. on the whole, an 
unpleasant day.

Pello Ruiz Cabestany, -aged 
24. one of the major forces in the 
recent revitalization of Spanish 
cycling yesterday won the fourth 
stage of what is becoming a 
.processional Tour de France. 
Cabestony caught fellow Span- 
iard Federico Echave five miles 
from, the finish and then 
dropped himoo the long haul to 
the finish, where had only two 
seconds -to spare over the Bel- 
gian. Eric Vanderaerden.- • • 

| The Belgian timed his effort 
too late and although he just 
overtook Dutchman Malhieu 
Hermans be was not satisfied 
with second place. Cabeslany 
had a much happier expression. 
He said: "That was the hardest, 
bui also the happiest, final 
kilometre of my life." 

The second place Of 
Vanderaerden increased h is lead 
.in the . Green Jersey . points 
competition, but it came at a 
cost One of his team-mates.the 
Dutch champion los 
Lammertink, fell heavily two 
miles from the finish when 
leading the pursuit behind die 
Spaniard -.and was taken to 
hospital -with agasbed head. • 

The - other members of ? 
Vanderaerden's Panasonic team 
looked exhausted at the finish . 
after lowing the huge bunch for 
most of the final two hours. A 
French rider. Regis Simon, had 
taken a 10-minute lead and it 
was only the efforts of the 
Panasonic . men which pre- 
vented him from winning the 

One of the Panasonic team, 
Eric van Lanckcr. who won the 

Milk Race in 1985. said: “If we A 
have to work this ban) every to* 
day. we will have nothing left ‘ 
when we reach the mountains 
next week." r? ’ • 

The reason that his team had 
id. chase was dictated by 
VanderandmY demand to win 
the coveted Green Jersey. In 
contrast, the .battle for the 
Yellow Jersey Of overall, leader 
look a back seat. 

The overnight leader. Thierry 
Marie, passed' oil the Yellow 
Jersey, to his icam mate Domi- 
nique Gaigne. who won a sixth 
second time "bonus early in the 
stage to go three seconds clear of 
Marie on overall time.. This 
cosmetic change to the leader 
board was probably due to 
Gaigne wanting to arrive in 
Evreux with the Ydlow Jersey . 
because, he lives only .ten mflest.'f 

The top Colombian team, 
who began the Tour, with high 
hopes of success, lost anothei 
rider, yesterday, when the tal- 
ented Fabio Parra . was left 
behind 40 miles from the finish 
and abandoned the race 30 
miles later.

Ashford’s win is put into focus 

Derbyshire’s West Indian fast 
bowler. Michael Holding, has 
suffered a groin injury which 
prevented him bowling in 
yesterday's championship 
match with Kent, and he- is now 
doubtful for tomorrow's 
NaiWest Trophy second-round 
match against Surrey. 
Derbyshire's seam bowler RogCT 
Finney is also unfit 

Moscow (Reuter) — The 
world record holder. Evelyn 
.Ashford, of the United States, 
had to wait for photographic 
proof to be sure of victory over 
East Germany's Heike 
Drechsler. the sprint revelation 
of this year, in the 100 metres at 
the Goodwill Games. 

The battle between veteran 
and newcomer provided an 
exciting opening to the athletics 
programme at the games, which 

also saw a European record in 
the men's long jump. 

Miss Ashford, the Olympic 
champion, and Miss .Drechsler 
both clocked lff.91' seconds, 
0.15 see slower than .the world 
best, but a photograph showed • 
the American breasteit tfe tape

"I fell that j had 0&4eaned 
her but 1 wasn't sure- because I 
could see her out oflhe cbrnerof

Miles Kinston: Steam Days, on 
BBC2 at 830pm 

•Moreover... Miles Kington 
has an affection for the puff-puff 
that is chikHike because it is 
unquestioning. Watching 
(BBC2, 8.30pm), the first of his 
six Steam toys films, you 
feel teat it would be something 
like seventh heaven for him to 
emulate CeRa Johnson in Brief 
Encounter and get some grit 

In his eye from a passing 
train. You cannot establish a 
stronger or more 

anthropomorphic fink 
between locomotive engine and 
human being than to say, as 
Kington does tonight about tee 
passenger train Duchess of 
Hamilton: "Cut her. and she 
bleeds steam." If that is a 
metaphor teat does not worry 
you. then you wiB feel equally 
happy about looking through 
MUes Kington'S ecstatic eves 


and seeing the steam engines as 
“great Victorian ham actors. 
They overact like mad. They're 
showbiz. They're sexy. " 
Hyperpole is me currency of the 
enthusiast and in this 
respect, Kington is a very big 
spender, between baoardrng 
The Duchess at Settle and 
quitting her at Carlisle. 

•Another enthusiast is given 
his head by BBC Television 
tonight Tom Vernon, whose 
(BBC2. 7.00pm) begins its 
second series. Ana very 
welcome it Is. too. Like MUes 
Kington, Tom Vernon has a good 
fine in hyperbole. It is not the 
English Channel that separates 
Britain from Franca, he 
opines, it is a chasm full of 

sauce-And such sauce ! Not 
for Tom Vernon the bottle of HP 
or Daddies. Sauces, like 
ideas or alcohol, depend for teen- 
success on the art Of 
distillation, he says. We do not 
however, see him doing much 
in the wav of distillation in his 
own Norm London kitchen. 

He leaves all teat to tee French 
cooks who get to work on 
coq au vin, fHcasee of Burgundy 
snails, perch in red wine, and 
pear Charlotte. Tom Vernon is 
caught so blissfully in the grip 
of framtophUia teat he can say 
without wincing: "Cheer up, 
you ontyneed ten eggs."

English slump 
opens way 
to fine finish 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 

EDGBASTOS: England, with 
anc second-innings wicket in 
hand, lead India nr 231 runs. 

There could be a good finish 
10 the third Test match, 
sponsored by Comhifl. today, 
with India needing 240 or 
thereabouts to become the 
first side visiting England to 
win all the three Tests of a 
three-match series. Yesterday 
England, batting with now 
familiar lack of success, made 
231 for nine, losing the last six 
of these wickets for 79 runs. 

England's previous 15 in- 
nings having lasted, on aver- 
age. for only 72 overs each, 
there was no reason for ex- 
pecting with any confidence 
that they would survive 
vesterday’s 90 overs. The 
pitch, also, was unpredictable, 
though that is forgiveabJe 
enough on the fourth day of a 
Test match. It was really much 
the same as when India were 
batting on Saturday, and they 
were in no great trouble. 

But England did not have as 
effective a bowler then as 
Chetan Sharma. the 20-year- 
old Haryana hurricane, who 
now took five for 56 in 22 
overs. He is the vegetarian 
nephew of Yashpal Sharma. 
who came to England on 
India's last two lours as a 
batsman. Chetan bustles in 
and puts everything he has 
into his bowling 

The batsman never quite 
knows where the next ball is 
going: nor. I rather think, does

Gooch began as though to 
score a century before lunch. 
He had thumped 40 in 10 
overs when, in Sharma's first 
over, he was given out leg- 
before. On the first day Kapil 
Dev’s first nine overs had cost 
eight runs: now his first five 
yielded 32. Had England kept 
that up they would have been 

Benson meanwhile was en- 
tirely passive. Sharma beat 
him more than once outside 
the off stump, but he was still 
there at lunch, having made 
25 out of 8$ for one in 26 
overs. Playing as he was. 
simply to survive, Benson 
became increasingly 
introspective the longer he 
stayed, and 20 minutes into 
the afternoon Shastri bowled 
him between bat and pad. 
Although the toll was well up

in the match he had seemed 
mesmerized by spin or the 
expectation of II 

An hour later, at 1 50 for two

playing very adequately, the

This was Gavaskar's 100th

I expect 90 have been taken at

that one of his remaining 
cricketing ambitions was to be

Champions chase glory 

From Jenny MacArthur, Aachen 

The four members of the 
British team will attempt here 
this week to add the world 
championship to the Europe- 
an title they gained last sum- 
mer. The team — Malcolm 
Pyrah, Nick Skelton, Michael 
and John Whitaker — start as 
joint favourites with the 
French, the world champions, 
and the Americans, the reign- 
ing Olympic gold medal win- 
ners. Sixteen teams are 

Pyrah is the only one of the 
four British riders who was in 
the winning team in 1978 — 
the last time the champion- 
ships were held here, He has 
been a regular member of the 
team ever since, and his- 
experience will be invaluable 
this week. Unlike the other 
three he has only one obvious 
horse for the champion- 
ships - Towcrlands 
Anglezarke on whom he won 
the individual silver medal at 
the 1982 world champion- 
ships in Dublin. The Irish- 
bred gelding is now 1 5, but has 
been jumped very sparingly 
over the last four years so 
there is plenty of energy to call 
upon. The horse’s bete noire is 
the water fence but as Ronnie 
Massarella, the team manager 
points out if that is all the 
horse does wrong over Amo 
Gego’s testing courses of the 
next five days, Lhere will not 
I be any complaints. 

The other three riders will 
wait until they have jumped in 
today's warm-up class before 
deciding which horse to ride. 
Michael Whitaker is likely to 
plump for Next Warren Point 
whose impressive form over 
the last two months includes 
two Grand Prix wins at 
Hickstead. His Olympic 
horse, Amanda, has been less 
consistent. John, Michael's 
older brother will opt for Next 
Hopscotch rather than the less 
experienced Milton unless 
something goes dramatically 
wrong today. 

Skelton has the most diffi- 
cult choice/Ori his day there is 
no finer horse than Raffles St 
James who Skelton rode in the 
European championships. But 
he is now 16 — nearly twice 
the age of Skelton's other top 
horse Raffles Apollo. The 
latter has taken time to find 
his form this summer, but he 
produced two good rounds at 
the French Nations Cup meet- 
ing a week ago, so he could be 
finding form at just the right 

The French may have found 
theirs too soon. They have 
three very experienced riders 
on their team — Michel Rob- 
ert and Frederic Cottier were 
both learn gold medal winners 
in Dublin — and Pierre 
Durand has shown consistant 
form with Jappeloup. But the 

team has had a hard summer, 
starting in May, when they 
gained the first of their four 
Nation Cups wins. Two 
months is a long time for the 
team to remain sharp. 

The Americans have so 
many top riders and horses to 
call upon that neither Joe 
Faigis, their 1984 Olympic 
indiviudalgold medal winner, 
nor Leslie Burr-Lenehan, the 
winner of the World Cup in 
April, are included in the 
team. It is led by Michael 
Matz who was a member of 
the team which won the 
bronze medal at Aachen in 
1978 when the same designer 
was helping to build the 

Of the other 1 3 teams, the 
Canadians are the ones most 
likely to spring a surprise. 

The West Germans look to 
be outclassed in the team 
event, but Paul 
Schockemohle, their lop rider, 
has a good chance of taking 
the individual title with 
Deisier, the winner of the 
European individual title on 
the last three occasions. The 
West Germans have also pro- 
duced the individual world 
champion on the last three 
occasions, the most recent 
being Norbert Koof, who is 
unable to defend his title as his 
horse Fire has been injured 
and is not fully fit.

The Iasi time thai Colin Reitz 
and Graeme Fell ran here as 
Great Britain team colleagues 
and Essex Beagles dubmaies 
was in 1 983. when Reitz won the 
steeplechase bronze medal in 
ihc world championships. Reitz 
accomplished that somewhat 
fortuitously, because the 
favourite. Henry Marsh, fell at 
the Iasi barrier while leading. 
Fell finished sixth. 

Last nighu the siorv was 
rather different. Fell' won 
convincingly in Smin !9.79sec. 
one of the fastest times of the 
year, and Reitz struggled to 
ninth place in 8.30.78. But that 
is not the end of the tale, fbr 
almost two years ago. Fell 
decided to forsake Essex and 
Britain lor Vancouver and 

And that is likeiv io cause a 
few rueful shrugs in Edinburgh 
in three weeks' time if Fell wins 
a Commonwealth medal. Last 
night's performance points to a 
mcdaL as does Fell's close 
second in Stockholm last Tues- 
day to Julius Rorir. of Kenya, 
the Olympic champion, who’ is 
the Commonwealth favourite. 

Fell's explanation for quitting 
Britain had a familiar ring, for it 
concerned the vagaries of selec- 
tion. something which has been 
uppermost in many athletes* 
minds and words recently. Fell 
said: “I had been at college in 
the United States for three years, 
and my wife is Canadian and 1 
was living in Canada, but I felt 
that the Olympic selection 
procedures in I9S4 were not 
fair. Certain people were passed 
over in preference to established 
stars who did not really have to 
prove themselves. That is not a 

consistent way of selecting a 
team. and. since I lived abroad, I 
became a victim of that proce- 
dure. I wish it hadn't been that 
way. but it always seems diffi- 
cult for athletes based abroad to 
come back and fit into the 
system. I certainly have much 
more freedom now to race 
where I warn." 

Reitz was right to insist that 
he should not be judged too 
harshly on last night's perfor- 
mance. since it was his first 
steeplechase since September. 
He was given grace by the 
selectors until tonight, two days 
after the final selection date, to 
prove Ms form. But time is 
getting short to improve it by 
the margin required to get close 
to Korir and Fell in Edinburgh. 

Phil Brown has recovered well 
from his ipjury. but he is still noi 
— by his own indication of 
lapping his head immediately 
after the race — employing the 
correct mental approach. He led 
coming off the last bend and 
into the straight, but lei the 
American. Sunder Nix. and 
Susumu Takano. of Japan, 
through far too easily. 

Tom Pet runoff, or the United 
States, justified the traditions of 
javelin-throwing in Finland, 
when he set a world best for the 
new implement of 85.28 metres. 
Prior Elliott was a good second 
to Jose-Luis Gonzales in the 
1.500 metres, and Pcira Fclke 
beat an inconsistent Tiina Lillak 
in the women's javelin, with 
70.0b metres. And Maricica 
Puica warmed up for her 2,000 
against Zola Budd at Crystal 
Palace on Friday, winning" the 
3.000 easily in Smin 40.72scc

Australia, who play the 
second of their two interna- 
tionals with Argentina in Syd- 
ney this Saturday, have 
chosen an experienced squad 
to lour New Zealand later this 
summer. The party will be 
captained by Andrew Slack 
and the most notable absen- 
tees are Roger Gould, the full- 
back who is injured, and 
Brendan Moon on the wing. 

Seventeen of the players 
were in Britain for the Grand 
Slam tour of 1984, among 
them Michael Lynagh. whose 
goal-kicking has had so much 
to do with Australia's most 
recent victories. 

The Australian selectors 
have chosen to take 17 for- 
wards and 13 backs on the 
basis that a New Zealand tour 
makes greater demands upon 
the forwards. 

The first match will be 
played against Waikato on 
July 23 and there will be three 
internationals, in Wellington 
(August 9), Dunedin (August 
23) and Auckland (September

Rangers kick off 
at the double 

By Hugh Taylor 

Rangers’ players discovered 
yesterday how determined 
their new manager, Graeme 
Souness, is to bring success to 
Ibrox when they reported for 
training for the season which 
begins on August 9, They were 
told that their new schedule 
calls for double sessions five 
days a week and once on 
Saturdays and Sundays at 
Jordanhill College. 

“As 1 will be playing with 
them, 1 decided we must 
spend most of our time getting 
to know each other.” said 
Souness, who had arrived at 
8.0am to start what the sup- 
porters are hoping will be a 
new and brighter era for 
Scotland's richest club. 

Among the new players who 
trained yesterday were 
Woods, the goalkeeper who 
cost Rangers £600,000 from 
Norwich, and West, the Wat- 

ford forward who was trans- 
ferred to. Ibrox for £200.000. 

The manager indicated that 
new moves for. more top 
quality players were to be 
made before the season be- 
gins. Arriving at Ibrox soon 
will be Avi Cohen, the Israeli 
international centre half who 
was a colleague cf Souness at 

“We have other people in 
mind as well,” said Souness, 
who added that he found 
himself fortunate in that when 
good players became available 
he had the money to buy 
them. But he had to confess 
ruefully that although Rangers 
had made an improved oner, 
believed to be around 
£600,000. for Gough, of Dun- 
dee United, tbe .outstanding 
defender in Scotland, this, too, 
had been turned down.
