Their announcements that 
they would not be sending 
teams to Edinburgh later this 
month represented the biggest 
and most unexpected blow yet 
to the Government’s policy on 
South Africa. There were un- 
confirmed reports that other 
countries, including Uganda, 
would follow suit 

Last night the Government 
voiced regret at the withdraw- 
als and urged Nigeria and 
Ghana to reconsider their 
decisions. The Common-

voiced.- the hope that the 

boycott would not spread. .

believe it is in the best 
interests of the Common-

Mr Denis Healey, the shad- 
ow foreign secretary, said 
yesterday that Nigeria’s deci- 
sion was a warning to the 
Government over its stance 
on South Africa. He also 
accused the Prime Minister in 
her recent interviews of malt-

the Foreign Secretary’s mis- 
sion in southern Africa to 
succeed.

Unpromising start

ising note. 

In Lusaka, the Zambian 
capital, the African National 
Congress, the chief military 
protagonist in the war against 
South Africa's apartheid sys- 
tem. refused to see him. 

President Kenneth Kaunda, 
the elder statesman of the 
Commonwealth, kept . him 
waiting for 15 minutes before 
their talks, which lasted 30 
minutes. 

Sir Geoffrey emerged from 
the discussions to say that 
though their talks were 
-friendly, candid and 
constructive,” there was “no 
unanimity.” 

Today, he meeis Mr Robert 
Mugabe, the Prime Minister 
of Zimbabwe, who, among the 
region's leaders, is the most 
scathingly critical of Western 
Europe’s reluctance to take 
firm action against South 
Africa.

Norway 
and ship exports 

Oslo (AP) - The Norwegian 
Government announced new 
restrictions yesterday on trade 
with South Africa, including a 
total ban on exports of refined 
oil products and ships. The 
restrictions also apply to Na- 
mibia. 

Earlier this year Norway 
banned imports of fruit and 
vegetables from South Africa 
and the export of arms, am- 
munition and military vehi- 
cles to South Africa. 


Geoffrey's arrival at Lusaka 
airport, Mr Tom Sebina, se- 
nior spokesman at the ANC 
headquaiers here, said that the 
chances of a meeting with Sir 
Geoffrey were “completely 
out”. 


He added;“We believe that 
whatever he (Sir Geoffrey) is 
supposed to be doing in South 
Africa was done by the (Com- 
monwealth) Eminent Persons* 
Group. We believe it is a waste 
of time and a useless 
exercise.” 


A police inspector was kill- 
ed and 20 people were injured, 
three of them seriously, when 
a bomb ripped apart the of- 
fices of the police anti-gang 
unit, the French equivalent of 
the British Flying Squad, in 
the fourth Arroudissement of 
Paris yesterday afternoon. 

The bomb, estimated to 
have weighed about 22 lbs, is 
thought to have been left in the 
unit’s lavatories on the fourth 
floor of a six-storey hnilding at 
11 Avenue Victoria. 

Police Inspector Marcel 
Bssdevaat was k Wed when be 
was crushed by a concrete cell-

fourth and fifth floors and

Younger seeks more frigates 


By Our Chief Political Correspondent 


Cabinet approval to order 
more than the three new Type 
23 frigates allowed for in this 
year's defence budget is being 
sought by Mr George Youn- 
ger. Secretary of State for 

Defence. 

In an attempt to provide 
more work for the hard- 
pressed naval shipyards, 
which the Prime Minister is 
known to be keen to support 
Mr Younger is understood to 
be studying ways in which the 
orders for a fourth, and maybe 


even a fifth, frigate could be 
placed this year. 


Under present plans the 
latter two orders lor the ships 
which will form the backbone 
of the Navy's anti-submarine 
force at the end of the century 
would not be placed until the 
year 1987-88 to fit in with 
Treasury calculations. 


and allow them to maintain 
workforces at a higher level. 

The discussions are delay- 
ing the announcement of the 
new frigate orders, but it could’ 
still be made next week.

can be devised which will

The first £1 10 million order 
is expected to go to Swan

A second, and probably the 
third, will go to Yarrow's on 
the Clyde. But Swan Hunter 
could be in the running for 
another if the right terms can 
be agreed. 


Commons clash on 
move to abolish 
jury challenges 


By Philip Webster and George Hill 

The Government’s decision abolition of the 
to abolish the right of peremp- 
tory challeflge^of jurors was 
criticizerf-by the Opposition 
and several Conservative MPs 
after it was confirmed yester- 
day by Mr Douglas Hurd, the 
Home Secretary. 

As reported yesterday in 
The Times , Mr Hurd con- 
firmed that the system was to 
be ended in the next session of 
Parliament. 


A promise 
to obey 
for royal 
wedding 


He told the Commons that 
the practice was now “widely 
criticized as a distortion of the 
jury system which should be 
based on the principle of 
random selection”. Its remov- 
al would help to maintain the 
effectiveness and integrity of 
the system.

would turn the system of 
“challenge for cause” under 
which both prosecution and 
defence can object to individ- 
ual members of juries after 
giving reasons for doing so. 
into a “growth industry in the 
courts’*. 

But among Conservative 
backbench MPs there was a 
mixed reaction to the deci- 
sion. Several Conservative 
lawyer-MPs made dear' that 
they were determined- to fight 
against the change when it is 
put to the Commons in a 
criminal justice Bill early in 
the new session of Parliament. 


Mr Gerald Kaufman, the 
shadow home secretary, who 
demanded a Commons state- 
ment from Mr Hurd after The 
T-biss repcr.Vsaii- .tha: thn 
move would cause “minor- 
ities m particular to feci that 
they have been deprived of an 
important . part of their 
armoury of defence”. 

Mr Kaufman said that the 


Mr David Ashby, Conser- 
vative MP for Leicestershire 
North West, said that a “very 
substantial number” of law- 
yers in the Conservative Party 
would oppose the decision to 
end the system under which 
defendants had the right to 
make three challenges. A 

Mr Ivan Lawrence, QC, the 
MP for Burton, also opposed 
abolition. He said: “It is 


because we have peremptory

challenge that we have avoi 
ed the growth of challenge for 
cause that we have seen in the 
United States." Strong back- 
ing for Mr Hurd, however, 
came from Mr Mark Carlisle, 
QC, a former Conservative 
cabinet minister, who said 
that peremptorychallenge had 
given defendants ihe power to 
manipulate the system. 

Mr Kaufman's criticism 
was restrained and it was 
noted that he had refrained 
from committing his party to 
reversing the change.

revert to tradition by promis- 
ing to obey her husband when 
she marries Prince Andrew in

her promise of obedience 
twice: once when Dr Robert

Hailsham 
ponders 
meaning 
of sex 


By Richard Evans 
Political Correspondent 


Lord Halls ham of St Mary- 
lebone, the Lord High Chan- 
cellor of Great Britain who is 
now in his 79th year and 
recently remarried, has turned 
his distsagraisfead legal mind to 
sexual definitions, and sent his 
thoughts to Cabinet co)-\ 
leagues including the Prime v 
Minister. 


In particular, be is con- 
cerned that sexual relations 
between homosexuals should 
be described correctly, and 
fears that the Government 
could be in danger of getting it 
wrong and lea vine itself open 
to critidsms of vulgarity. 

His worry conies alter the 
circulation to ministers by Mr 
Norman Fowler, Secretary of 
State for Social Services, of 
die draft of a new govenunent- 
frioded advertising campaign 
warning of the dangers of 
acquired immune deficiency 
syndrome (Aids), the killer 
disease which particularly af- 
fects homosexuals. 

The strength of his feelings 
are conveyed in a letter seat to 
Lord WMteiaw, Leader of the 
House of Lords and deputy 
Prime Minister, a copy of 
which has been obtained by 
The Times , in which he objects 
to the proposed advertise- 
ments referring to homosex- 
uals “having sex”. 

He has forwarded copies of 
the letter to Mrs Thatcher, Sir 
Robert Armstrong, Cabinet 
secretary and head of the 
home CMI Service, and sever- 
al government ministers. 

The letter reads: 

Dear Willie, 

I have read Norman. 
Fowler's letter of 24 June 1986 
and the draft he envisages. 

Whilst I share his view that 
a future round of national 
advertising should be much on 
the lines of the last round, but 
with shorter text and simpler 
language, t am convinced there 
must be some limit to 
vulgarity!* 

Could they not use literate 
“sexual intercourse”. If that is 
thought to be too narrow, that 
why not “sexual relations** or 
“physical practices”, but not 
“sex" or, worse, “having 
sex”!!! 

I am copying this letter to 
the Prime Minister. Norman 
Fowler and other members of 
the committee; the members of 
the interdepartmental minis- 
terial group on Aids and Sir 
Robert Armstrong. 

Yours, 

Quintin 
* And illiteracy. “Sex” means 
you are either male of female. 
It does not mean the same as 
sexual practices. Nor does 
“having sex” mean anything 
at all. 


The Department of Health 
and Social Security was un- 
able to say last night if Lord 
Hailshara's comments had led 
to the advertisements being re- 
written. 


Shares 

rally 

sharply 


Share prices on the London 
Stock Exchange recovered yes- 
terday after Tuesday's plunge 
which saw a record £5.4 
billion wiped off the value of 
equities (Richard Lander 
writes). 

The FT-30 share index 
closed 13.8 points higher at 
i,331.5. having slumped 30.1 
pohns the previous day. 

Dealers said investors were 
m a buying mood again after 
Tuesday's sharp fall had en- 
abled them to snap up shares 
at bargain prices. 

Among leading issues, Brit- 
ish Telecom added 8 p to 204p. 

Share prices also looked 
steadier on Wall Street where 
a record fell in the Dow Jones 
industrial average on Monday 
precipitated die slump in 
London. 

The index was 0.98 points 
up at 1,821.71 by midday.

Kremlin in 
hijack deal 
with Paris 


Moscow — The Soviet and 
French governments have 
agreed to begin holding regu- 
lar talks on the best methods 
for coping with the spread of 
international terrorism, 
particularily aircraft hijacking 
and extremist attacks • 

The agreement was an- 
nounced last night by Mr 
Gennady Gerasimov, the 
chief Kremlin spokesman, af- 
ter the third and final series of 
private talks between Presi- 
dent Mitterrand of France and 
Mr Mikhail Gorbachov. 

French sources said the case 
of the internally exiled Soviet 
physicist,' Dr Andrei Sakha- 
rov. had been one of a number 
of human rights cases raised. 

Mr Gorbachov also pro- 
posed that the five permanent 
members of the UN Security 
Council should hold a confer- 
ence to find a Middle East 
solution. 


Vigilantes against pornography sought in US 


From Michael Binyon 
Washington 


A United States commission 
on pornography yesterday rec- 
ommended far-reaching 
changes in federal and state 
laws and the setting up of 
citizen vigilante groups to 
combat what it termed the 
-cruel plague” sweeping the 

country. , ...

The final draft of ft* contro- 
versial report reversed the 


repeal of all laws restricting It 
for adult consumers. 

With two of the panel's 11 
members disagreeing, the 
commission concluded that 
“substantial exposure to sexu- 
ally violent materials ... 
bears causal relationship to 
anti-soctal acts of sexual vio- 
lence and possibly to unlawful 
acts of sexual violence”. 

It said substantial exposure 
to material depicting scenes 
degradhg women could also 
cause unwanted sexual 
aggression.

such as Playboy and Pent- 
house, while not legally ob-

The commission, headed by 
Mr Henry Hudson, a US 
attorney who made a reputa- 
tion as an anti-pornography 
campaigner and public prose- 


ra phy and recommended the ^recommendat ions to rid the cutor.in Virginia, spent a year 


on its investigations at a cost 

Of $500,000 (£312^00). 

Even before it delivered its 
formal 2 , 000 -page report, 
which has been available for 
inspection for the past two 
months, it was vigorously criti- 
cized as a group of conserva- 
tives hand-picked to reach the 
conclusions wanted by the 
Reagan Administration 

Mr Barry Lynn, from the 
American Civil Liberties 
Union, said many of the 
group's proposals amounted to 
censorhip, 

“The report is a disgraceful 
enterprise which bides prod- 
ishness and moralism behind a 
thin veil of social science 
jargon.” he declared. 

Two members of the panel, 
both women, dissented from 


the central findings of the 
commission and criticized it 
for concentrating only on 
“very violent and extremely 
degrading” material. They 
said “efforts to tease the 
current data” into proof of a 
link between pornography and 
sex crimes was not an accept- 
able practice. 

The commisshm had hoped 
to list 10,000 retailers of 
pornography as a way of 
potting public pressure on 
them not to stock such materi- 
al, but lawsuits prevented the 
publication of such a blacklist 

The report whose salacious 
details are likely to make it a 
best-seller in itself, does how- 
ever include an alphabetical

graphic books, films and 
magazines.

THE TIMES THURSDAY JULY 10 1986 


Top firms enlisted in 
drive to end shortage 
of specialist teachers 


By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


Mr Kenneth Baker, Secre- 
tary of State for Education and 
Science, has stepped up his 
drive to recruit more teachers 
in the shortage subjects of 
mathematics, physics and 
craft design and technology, 
by writing to top companies in 
the country for help. 

In addition, he has asked 
the main employers' organiza- 
tions. and every local educa- 
tion authority, chief education 
officer and teacher trade 
union, to help to overcome the 
shortage of teachers in certain 
specialist subjects as a matter 
of urgency. 

• "The minister wants to see 
more companies pulling their 
weight employing teachers as 
paid consultants during the 
holidays, providing equip- 
ment for laboratories and 
workshops, organizing staff 
exchanges and running 
competitions 

A consultative document, 
accompanying the letter, ex- 
plained that recent efforts to 
recruit enough teachers in the 
shonage subjects had failed 
and a fresh approach was 
needed. 

The contents of a- draft of 


that document were reported 
in The Times on June 27 and 
remain substantially un- 
changed, although Mr Baker 
would like replies to the 
consultation exercise by the 
end of October, instead of the 
end of December, as previous- 
ly stated. 

Launching the document 
yesterday, Mr Baker said that 
the search for teachers of 
shortage subjects was vital to 
Britain's future as an impor- 
tant industrial nation. “They 


have been in short supply for 
many years. We cannot afford 


many years. We cannot afford 
to lei the problem continue. 

“Some firms have appreci- 
ated already the long-term 
benefits to them and to the 


economy as a whole of having

craft, design and technology 
taught properly in our schools.

Teachers to get peace deal 


Local authority employers 
will be presenting tbe 
teachers' unions with a pack-

secure a lasting peace in 
schools at a meeting of the two 
sides later this month (Our 
Education Correspondent

ers to concoct a united front

Ilea sports 
challenge 
to Baker 


Tory MPs angered by 
Alliance ‘chaperone 9 


By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 


The Labour-run Inner Lon- 
don Education Authority yes- 
terday criticized claims from 
Mr Kenneth Baker, Secretary 
of State for Education, that it 
was deliberately lowering the 
standard of competitive sports 
in schools. 

Mr Baker told a by-election 
meeting in Newcastle-under- 
Lyme on Tuesday that Ilea, 
showed a “sour and pessimis- 
tic dismissal of the competi- 
tive spirit" on the playing field 
and in the classroom. “If Boris 
Becker had been educated in 
Ilea he would still be 
unknown." 

Mrs Frances Monrell, the 
authority's leader, replied: “ It 
is completely untrue to say we 
are against competitive sport 
Only last week we announced 
the Ilea Olympics, a two-year 
programme of inter-school 
competition. 

“We may not have pro- 
duced Boris Becker but our 
schools have turned out doz- 
ens of international sports 
stars." 

The flea claims as gradu- 
ates: Daley Thompson, the 
world decathlon champion; 
Frank Bnmo and Charlie 
Magri, the boxers; Kenny 
Sansom, footballer, Suzanne 
Dando, gymnast; David 
Smith, England cricketer, and 
: Sieve Davis, snooker player. 

Next week Ilea’s primary 
school chess team, aged 9 to 
1 1, plays three Tory and three 
Labour MPs. The last match 
was won by the school side 3* 
2 . 


An Alliance-run council has 
ruled that Conservative MPs 
planning to visit schools must 
dear their movements with 
county haS and set foot on the 
premises only if accompanied 
by a Liberal or Social Demo- 
cratic Party member of the 
council. 

Yesterday, controversy over 
the move by Devon County 
Coundl spilled into Westminr 
ster with Sir Peter Mills, 
Conservative MP for Torridge 
and West Devon, calling on 
Mr Kenneth Baker, Secretary 
of State for Education and 


Science, to guarantee the 
county’s MPs freedom of ac- 
cess to the classroom. 

Sir Peter said: “It’s a load of 
nonsense and I'm not having 
iL We have now a change in 
the powers of Devon County 
Coundl to a socialist and 
Liberal alliance and they are 
beginning to make certain 
rules and regulations, one of 
which is we should speak to 
county hall and get permission 
to visit a school or any other 
place run by the county like an 
old people's home:” 

He said that be had been 
dropping in on schools for 
more than 20 years, often at 
short notice when travelling in 
far-flung parts of the shire, not 
for party political reasons but 
to “look, listen and learn". 

Mr Patrick NichoUs, Con- 
servative MP for Teign bridge, 
said the ruling was a “down- 
right cheek” and an insult to 
his colleagues, who attend 
schools to talk about Parlia- 
ment not to indoctrinate pu- 


existing practice in me inter- 
ests of courtesy and good. 


manners so that visiting VIPs 
were accompanied by a senior 
coundl member. 

A spokesman said that un- 
der the code the relevant 
council chief officer, area offi- 
cer and chairman of school 
governors must be informed 
whenever an MP or MEP 
planned to visit a school. 

The chief officer would then 
inform the chief executive 
who would contact the chair- 
man and shadow chairman of 
the coundl committee in- 
volved, discuss the nature of 
the visit and arrange for 
invitations to be issued. 

Mr David Mack! in, 'the 
chief executive, told a meeting 
of the coundl's policy com- 
mittee that to “talk about 
obstructing MPs was not in 
any way contemplated". 


Pits visit depresses Tracey 


Mr Richard Tracey, Under 
Secretary of State for the 
Environment and a self-con- 
fessed country boy, was taken 
on a coach tow of some of die 
most depressed areas of the 
South Yorkshire coalfields 
yesterday. He pronounced 
himself deeply depressed by 
the experience. 

It was precisely die reaction 
that his hosts had desired. The 
Coalfield Communities Cam- 
paign, an organization com- 
prised of 70 local authorities hi 
mining regions throughout tbe 
country, are anxious to secure 
increased government aid to 
anprove the dismal environ- 
ment and poor job prospects 
that face the residents in many 
pit towns and villages. 

They invited Mr Tracey to 
see the conditions for himself. 
He was first taken from his 
hotel in the pleasant market 
town of Bawtry, near Doncas- 
ter, on a 20-minute journey to 


By Peter Davenport 

tbe Dearne valley towns of 
Thurnscoe, Goldthorpe and 
Bolton, an area known locally 
as the “valley of despair” 
because of a landscape blight- 
ed by the relics of decades of 
mining, high unemployment, 
poor housing and dismal eco- 
nomic prospects. 


The red, white and blue 
continental coach wound 
through Thurnscoe, past the 
pit and on to the main housing 
estate, passing under a railway 
bridge still daubed with the 
slogans of the miner's strike. 

From there Mr Tracey was 
taken to the town of Wadi and 
past the now-dosed Cortou- 
wood colliery, the so-called 
miners' “Alamo” where the 
coal strike began. 


Since 1980 some 3,700 jobs 
In the area have disappeared, 
with 1,160 of them in the past 
22 pwtfhs in the mining 
industry. The impact on local 


employment and the economy 
has been predictable. 

Male unemployment in ! 
Brampton Bierlow, the com- j 
m unity bordering Cottonwood, 
Is now 57 per rent. Mr Tracey 
was told of several schemes 
under consideration to combat 
unemployment, the lack of 
new job opportunities and 
increasing poverty. 

Mr Tracey said the cod of 
potting it all right was daunt- 
ing. Among the possibilities to 
be considered are increased 
funds from the EEC more 
money from the derelict land 
grant He also said there 
would be talks with British 
Coal to persuade it to release 
its unused land more readily to 
local authorities. 

He also thought it may be 
worthwhile for the Coalfield 
Communities Campaign to in- 
vite Mr Richard Branson, the 
bead of the record and airline 
company. Virgin, to the area.

A Russian KGB defector 
who wanted a new life in the 
West with his mistress was 
responsible for the unfounded 
spying allegations against Mr 
John Bothwell, die former US 
naval commander and CIA 
man, cleared of a secrets 
charge m London this week. 

That was the opinion of Mr 
Both well himself as he relaxed 
yesterday with his wife, Anne, 
at their home in Bath. 

A one-time submariner, Mr 
BothweO, aged 59, is an 
, example of that familiar fig- 
ure, the military man who has 
turned to an international 
business career. But If he has 
managed to cut his links with 
- the intelligence community, as 
| he cfe tmyj, he has nevertheless 
kept its habits of mind. 

Viktor Godarer, the defec- 
tor, ostensibly the Soviet mari- 
time trade delegate in Piraeus, 
the port of Athens, and in 
reality a KGB colonel, was a 
I business associate of Mr 
Bothwell, who owned a ship- 
ping company in the port after 
leaving the US Government, 
be says. 

"Besides Us wife in Russia, 

I Gudarev had a mistress in 
Greece with whom he wanted 
I to begin life again in tbe West. 
“He wasn’t running away from 
communism,” Mr Bothwell 
said. “He was muting away 
from his old lady in Moscow.” 

Last February Gudarev 
handed himself over to the 
Americans In Athens and, Mr 
Bothwell alleged, provided 
them frith a list of 20 names of 
his “contacts" to ensure him- 
self and his mistress a warm 
welcome. “They were the 
aarnes of Greek-Bfwal officers 
and American citizens, but to 
the best of my knowledge not 
one of the others has been 
charged with anything,” he 
said. 

But Mr Bothwell had served 
as a senior officer in the US 
submarine service, finishing 
his career in nuclear vessels 
with the top-secret Submarine 
Development Group in New 
London, Conneticut And he 
was a CIA man. He was a 
prime candidate for suspicion. 

He admitted yesterday that 
he started Us Greek-based

while he was a serving CIA 
agent and began his business 
contacts with the Russians on 
CIA instructions. But be de-

Long shadow of South 
Africa over Games 


By John Good body. Sports News Correspondent 


Boy George is under 
medical supervision’ 


The shadow of South Africa 
has loomed over most big 
sporting events in foe last 25 
years, although it has not 
taken part in the Olympics 
since 1960 and the Common- 
wealth Games, since 1958. 

Their apartheid policy first 
caused them to be excluded 
from foe Olympics in 1964. 
They were readmitted to foe 
Olympic movement for foe 
1968 Games in Mexico City 
when they were to have sent a 
multi-racial team. 

The Supreme Coundl for 
Sport in Africa threatened to 
boycott foe Games if South 
Africa took part, and were 
supported by other Third 
World countries. The Interna- 
tional Olympic Committe 
(IOC) backed down and with- 
drew foe invitation. 

Four years later, it was foe 
turn of Rhodesia. Fifteen days 
before foe Games opened m 
Munich a similar threat by 
black African nations again 
forced foe IOC to withdraw 
the invitation on a 
technicality. 

The Africans were so heart- 
ened by their success that they 
switched their attention next 
to countries which had sport- 
ing links with South Africa. 


in 1975 foe New Zealand 
All Blacks played rugby 
against foe Springboks. On foe 
eve of the 1976 Olympics in 
Montreal foe Supreme Coun- 
cil for Sport in Africa threat- 
ened another boycott unless 
New Zealand were barred 
from participating. 

But foe lateness of their 
threat and foe lack of support 
from other Third World coun- 
tries led to little support. The 
IOC called foe Africans’ bluff 
and on foe day the Games 
opened, 22 nations withdrew 
and six who might have been 
expected to arrive, did not do 
so. 

The Commonwealth 
Games, known as foe “Friend- 
ly Games", had never been 
affected by any threat of a 
boycott and when Nigeria 
attempted to lead a walkout in 
1978 at Edmonton, again over 
a rugby tour with New Zea- 
land, they were unsuccessful, 
with no other nation following 
them. 

If the Edinburgh Games are 
foe subject of a widespread 
boycott, this will be the first , 
lime that foe quadrennial | 
Games have been affected on , 


Boy George, the pop singer 
alleged to have an £800-a-day 
heroin habit, was last night 
under round the clock medical 
supervision, according to a 
statement issued by Virgin 
Records, the record company. 

Vizgin said that foe singer, 
aged 25. whose real name is 
George O’Dowd, had been in 
medical care since 10 am on 
Monday and that foe police 
had been "fully informed of 
foe position” 

The police had earlier been 
anxious to question him after 
a raid in search of drugs on his 
home in Abercora Place, St 
John’s Wood, north London. 
No drugs were found at the 
house of foe singer who works 
with foe group Culture Club. 

But five people, including 
Boy George's friend Marilyn, 
aged 23, foe singer, appeared 
in court in London yesterday 
on drugs charges as a result of 
the police swoop which cov- 
ered a number of houses. 

Marilyn, whose real name is 
Peter Robinson, was chained 
with possessing an unspecified 
amount of heroin and re- 
manded on unconditional bail 
until July 23 by Marylebone 
Magistrates Court. 

He had been arrested during 
the raid on his home at 


a lame scale.

By Tim Jones 

A High Court judge was 
yesterday asked to gram in- 


junctions ordering foe print 
unions and six of their promi- 
nent members to stop organiz- 
ing unlawful picketing outside 
the News International pub- 
lishing plant at Wapping, east 
London, and other premises 
owned by the company. 

The action comes after 
months of large scale picket- 
ing. demonstrations and 
marches outside foe News 
International plant organized 
after the dismissal of print 
union employees when they 
went on strike. 

Mr Anthony Grabiner. QC. 
said there was evidence to 
show that foe action against 
the plants had been “planned 
and orchestrated". He said the 
beginning of the story went 
back to the well-known prob- 
lems of Fleet Street, stem- 
ming. as the employer would 
say. from foe reluctance of 
unions to accept new technol- 
ogy or up to date working 
methods. 

Mr Grabiner said that the 
unions operated working prac- 
tices under which 100 employ- 
ees paid for working an eight- 
hour shift would divide it so 
they worked only four hours 
and in addition maintained a 
stranglehold on distribution. 


The injunction is being 
sought by News Group News- 
papers. Times Newspapers, 
News International, News In- 
ternational Distribution, 
News International Supply 
Company, London Post 
(Printers), and Miss Pamela 
Hamilton-Dick, an advertis- 
ing executive. 

In Miss Hamilton-Dick's 
case, an order was being 
sought against four of the 
named defendants from sub- 


jecting her or inciting others to 
abuse or harass tier with 


threatening or intimidatory 
language such as “filthy bitch, 
scab, stag, bitch, or Judas". 

The defendants in the case 
are: Sogai '82; the National 
Graphical Association 1982; 
Mr William Freeman, acting 
chairman of the London ma- 
chine room branch of Sogat; 
Mr Michael Hicks, a commit- 
tee member of Sogat London 
central branch; Mr Michael 
Britton, a member of foe 
national executive committee 
of Sogat-Mr Edward Chard, 
branch secretary of London 
central branch of Sogat and 
also an executive committee 
member. Mr Charles Chen-ill, 
acting secretary of foe London 
machine branch of Sogat; and 
Mr Christopher Robbins. 
London district secretary of 
Sogat 

The action also seeks to ban 


any unlawful picketing, nui- 
sance or obstruction outside 
or near any premises of TNT 
Road freight (UK), foe compa- 
ny that distributes newspapers 
published by foe group. 

On their action, foe compa- 
nies are seeking to enforce the 
guidelines drawn up under foe 
Trade Union Act, 1982, which 
limits the number of pickets 
allowed at a place of work to 
six. 

Mr Grabiner said that News 
Group acquired the Wapping 
plant in 1978 but it became 
“something of an albatross" 
after talks with the unions 
broke down. In March 1985. 
foe company drew up a con- 
tingency plan to use Wapping 
if the production of foe titles 
became impossible. 

“They did that for entirely 
sensible reasons so that, in the 
event of some further dispute, 
they would be free to publish 
and distribute without 
difficulty," Mr Grabiner said. 

He said that although nego- 
tiations with foe print unions 
re-opened in September 1985. 
“the battle lines were clearly 
drawn". Thai came after 
union demands lor guaran- 
teed employmentuntil retire- 
ment and wage increases in 
line with foe Retail Price 
Index. 

Mr Rupert Murdoch, chair- 


man of News International, 
had written to all employees 
appealing to them to continue 
doing their jobs but members 
of both unions bad voted for 
strike action. 

After voting for strike ac- 
tion on January 24. 1986, the 
company implemented its 
contingency plan and moved 
to Wapping. 

Mr Grabiner said: “We say 
that foe unlawful behaviour

official interpreter for one of 
the defendants, who is French- 
speaking. '

object of converting registrar 
to consultant posts. 

Newly appointed consul- 
tants in foe acute specialties 
are to have a greater direct 
involvement in patient care 
and in direct supervision and 
training of ibeir junior staff. 
That would be subject to the 
proviso that support staffing 
should not be reduced below a 
minimum number . 

The implementation of .foe 
proposals is scheduled to be- 
gin on January 1. 

Dr Maurice Burrows, chair- 
man of foe British Medical 
Association central committee 
for hospital medical services, 
said: "The plans will mean 
more patients being seen by 
senior doctors, and we hope 
there will be a reduction in 
NHS waiting lists " 

Dr Peter Hawker, chairman I 
of foe BMA hospital junior 
staff committee, said: "This is 
foe breakthrough we need. For 
years, frilly trained doctors 
have been unable to find 
consultant posts." 


Animals left

- Rats and rabbits taken from 
the animal house at foe John 
Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford* by 
anti-vivisectionists who cut a 
two-foot hole through a metal 
covered fire door, were found 
abandoned in a cemetery. 

Tbe Central Animal Libera-

Bar chairman criticizes 
government policy 
on restricting legal aid 


-A strong -attack 
Government's policy of re- 
stricting the Inal aid scheme 
ana ns lack of commitment” 
to maintaining legal services 
*as made last night by the 
chairman of the Bar, Mr 
Robert Alexander, QC. 

The policy was in danger of 
paving the way to a national 
government legal service, he 
&ud. 

4 No political party support- 
ed such a service when the 
Royal Commission on i*gai 
Services reported in 1979. But 
ww two groupings had 
thought the idea “worthy at 
least of discussion”. 

. The Government appeared 
to have abandoned the princi- 
ples of the legal aid scheme 
that such aid should be avail- 
able to those of ’poor and 
moderate means; and that 
lawyers should be paid reason- 
ably for work done. . 

Mr Alexander, addressing 
the annua] general meeting of 
Justice, the law reform group, 
tn London, urged action both 
.by the profession and die 
Government. 

- The legal profession must 
move towards providing a 
“high street” service with 
barristers acting as travelling 


By Fiances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 
on the consultants touring the coun- that criminal 
try, he said. 

Greater ease of access by the 
public must be encouraged by 
a “prominently displayed 
service”, not forbidding, re- 
mote or uninviting. 

Barristers should also be- 
come wilting and be petmined 
to travel to conferences with 
clients and be available to 
hold a series of such confer- 
ences in a particular town 
from time to time, he said. 

“This would provide, m 
effect, a local consultancy 
service to solicitors.” he said. 

The profession should also 
unite in simplifying the law 
and its procedures; in moving 
towards more written pro- 
ceedings and in greater disclo- 
sure of argument between the 
parties; and in more work for 
“less than a reasonable fee”. 

The Government, for its 
part, should “scent the dan- 
gers of a national legal 
service” and “shape a round- 
ed, foil policy to improve 
access to the law”. Legal aid 
must oot be allowed to be- 
come a “second class service.” 

No political party was more 
steadfast in its avowed com- 
mitment to law and order, he 
said. Yet the Government had 
not been anxious to ensure 


lawyers were 
“properly paid”; and had cut 
back on eligibility for civil 
legal aid. 

ll “seems prepared to allow 
standards to (bop, U> force 
solicitors to give up criminal 
legal aid work, and to risk the 
quality of future judges by 
what Lord R os kill described 
recently in the House of Lords 
as ‘parsimony’.” 

In 1979 the Royal Commis- 
sion on Legal Services had 
urged that legal aid, then 
0.16 percent of the public 
spending bill, should be given 
a higher priority. 

But legal aid was still only 
0.22 per cent of public expen- 
diture. More has been spent 
on the scheme, Mr Alexander 
said, but the progress has been 
“within the limitation of the 
general government approach 
to control expenditure”. 

He also attacked the 
Government's failure to make 
a statement of policy on the 
future funding of law centres. 
The Royal Commission urged 
that there be adequate re- 
sources for a network of law 
centres and the Government 
in 1983 said an announcement 
would be made “in due 
course.” But no policy state- 
ment had been forthcoming.

£31,000 paid for 
Roman treasure 

■ By Norman Hammond, Archaeology Correspondent 


The British Museum has 
paid £31,001 for a Roman 
jeweller's board, decribed as 
the most spectactular to have 
been found this decade. 

Details of the hoard, found 
last summer and now judged 
to be treasure trove, have been 
disclosed in the latest issue of 
Antiquity. 

The hoard was discovered 
in a trench on a building she at 
Snettisham. Norfolk, by Mr 
George Onslow, who was 
operating a mechanical exca- 
vator. When he took the 
pottery vessel home he found 
that it contained a large 
collection of gold and silver 
coins and jewellery. He report- 
ed the find to the local 
-museum. - 

The pot, which was less 
than eight inches high, con- 
tained more than 350 objects. 
Some of the-hnger-pieces had - 
been bent to get them in. 

“It is a very remarkable 
collection,” Dr Timothy Pot- 
ter, of the British Museum, 
said. He is in charge of 
publishing the find. 

There were 110 Roman 
coins, 83 of them stiver denar- 
ii. 110 unmounted engraved 
gems of red cornelian, a “vast 
array” of silver rings, brace- 
lets, necklaces and pendants, 
and silver bars and scrap. 


The scrap silver, in the form 
of broken bars, sheets and 
wire, shows that the hoard was 
the working stock-in-trade of a 
jeweller. 

Not all the objects were of 
precious metal: there were two 
tools, one of quartz and one of 
copper, a copper-alloy seal 
box decorated v^th enamel 
and still retaining its string, 
and numerous copper and 
bronze coins. 

Mr Onslow and the land- 
owner, Mr Richard Medlock, 
were anxious that the whole 
find should stay together, and 
the British Museum has ac- 
quired all the objects. 

Initial study has shown that 
the latest coins are of AD155, 
and that date, together with 
the style of the jewellery, 
indicates a mid-second centu- 
ry deposition of the board. 

The jewellery is berog stud- 
ied by Dr Catherine Johns, a 
colleague of Dr Potter, at the 
British Museum. “Our jewel- 
ler was* not an especially 
accomplished craftsman”, Dr 
Potter reports from her find- 
ings, “but this in some ways 
confers even greater interest 
on the find, since one can 
begin to understand what was 
available in a fairly rural area

Launch of Rover 800 


A clean break with the past 


Austin Rover has gone to 
..extraordinary lengths to en- 
•\sure that today's launch of the 
'.new Rover 800 executive 
"'saloon does not suffer the 
'-same disastrous start as its 
•‘predecessor. . 

Within days of the launch of 
'the ok! Rover 10 years ago, 
there were so many com- 
plaints of inferior quality and 
,:poor reliability that a director 
of the then Solihull-based 
Rover company later admit- 
ted: “It was a nightmare of a 
■debut for a car which had 
received rave reviews and for 
which we had such high hopes, 
jt was two years before it 
-'recovered.” . 

: Austin Rover’s lack of a 
- modem contender in the most 
profitable sector of the market 

■ has seriously jeopardized tne 
company’s slow recovery. 

3 About 70 per cent of ass to 
the sector are bought by 
m company fleets. , 

The overall market shareof 
‘ the Rover Group (formerly 
BL) has fallen from 1 8 per cent 
in the first six months last year 
to 16.5 per cent m the same 
period this year and it is in

Mr Musgrove said; “We 
have got to get it right this 
time. There will be no second 
chance. I would rather be 
short of cars than give it a 
lousy start.” . 

As a result it will be in short 
supply for the next few 
months but that could prove 
to be an advantage. It will 
remove any temptation deal- 
ers have to discount the car. 

Only 1,500 are in the show- 
rooms for today's launch. 
They are all silver metallic in 
colour because that is believed 
to show the car to its best 
advantage. . . 

Production is expected soon 
to reach 750 a week and 1,500 
by the end of the year. Peak 
production of the old model at 
Solihull was 1,600 a weefc 

The transverse engine, front 
wheel drive 800 range is 
available with two engine 
sizes: a new Austin Rover 
designed 2 litre lean burn unit 
and a more powerfuL all alloy 
15 litre Honda V6. Both 


engines have the latest four 
valves per cylinder layout 

The two litre 820i and 820Si 
and the bigger engined 825i 
and Steriing form the initial 
launch lino-up. They will be 
joined shortly by the cheaper 
820E and 820SE models fitted 
with AusliQ Rover's own sin- 
gle point injection system. 

Launch prices range from 
£1 1 ,820 for the 820i to 
£18,794 for the lavishly 
equipped Sterling. 

My initial reaction after 
trying both engine sizes is that 
Rover now has an executive 
car to stand alongside the 
competition. I was particular- 
ly impressed by the small 
powered delivery of the 
Longbridgo-made two litre en- 
gine with a claimed top speed 
of!26raph-

versions are up to the best

evidence suggests that the two

Convert to 
fallow call 
by Jopling 

A voluntary scheme to take 
land out of production was 
greatly preferable to compul- 
sory quotas on cereals, Mr 
Michael Jopling, Minister of 
Agriculture, said yesterday 
(John Young writes). 

Mr Jopling was speaking at 
the annual harvest luncheon 
of the Horae Grown Cereals 
Authority 

No one could pretend that 
the fundamental problem fee- 
ing cereals had been over- 
come, he said. 

“United Kingdom barley 
sold out of intervention for 
export last week achieved a 
price of about £40 a tonne. It 
had been bought at a price well 
over £100 a tonne.” 

A voluntary scheme to con- 
vert arable land to fellow, to 
woodlands or to crops not in 
surplus at least merited fur- 
ther discussion, be said.

Itemized phone bills nearer 


The race is on between 
British Telecom and Mercury, 
its rival, to be the first to 
introduce itemized telephone 
bills to domestic subscribers 
on a large scale (Bill Johnstone 
writes). 

Both plan to offer the 
service next year but BT will 
charge for it 

Itemized bills, which are 
standard in the United States, 
have been long sought after by 
consumers. Disputes about 
telephone bills is still one of 
the main sources of com- 


plaints made to the Office of 
Telecommunications (Oftri). 
the consumer watchdog for 
the industry. 

Mercury has about 400 
business corporations as its 
customer base and is offering 
itemized billing now as stan- 
dard to all users on its 
network. Last April, Mercury 
became a national service 
when it interconnected with 
the British Telecom network. 

A concerted effort is to be 
made in September to attract 
small business users. Next 


year the domestic user will be 
the prime target. 

For the present British 
Telecom is only offering item- 
ized billing in Bristol and 
Bath, , where an experiment 
involving 35,000 customers is 
taking place. A plan to intro- 
duce tne service last year was 
scrapped and the corporation 
has chosen to offer it piece- 
meal. 

The service should be intro-

Execution fear in deportation case 


An Iranian drug smi 

who feces deportation 

Britain may- be executed for 
politicakreasons if be is re- 
turned to Iran, his lawyer said 
last night. 

Mr David Gray said that the 
decision to send home his 
client, Hamid Monazeh, aged 
25. who is on hunger strike in 
Durham prison, was 
“despicable” in the light of the 


double ha ng in g in Malaysia. 

Mr Gray has appealed to the 
Home Office to look at the 
case again. He said that “there 
really seems to be a genuine 
fear that he will be executed if 
he returns to Iran” but the 
Home Office was “turning a 
blind eye to the prospect”. 

Monazeh was jailed for five 
years for smuggling drugs into 
Britain but served only three 


irs of the sentence. He was 
for a year but rearrested 
last month and told he was 
being deported because he had 
not found a new home in a 
country other than Iran or 
England. 

The Home Office said yes- 
terday: “We are trying to 
arrange travel documents for 
this man's deportation.”

Chalker defends Thatcher 


Trial by jury 


Foreign Secretary mission to Africa not a lost cause 


APARTHEID 


The visit of Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
the Foreign Secretary and Presi- 
dent of the EEC Council of 
Foreign Ministers, to South 
Africa was perhaps the last 
chance to get a successful di- 
alogue going. Mrs Lynda 
Chalker. Minister of State for 
Foreign and Commonwealth 
Affairs, told the Commons. 

She declared that it was wrong 
to assume that the mission 
would fail. This is not a lost 
cause (she said). We are trying 
again the road to persuasion. We 
can still help to get negotiations 
going. 

A steady positive effort was 
going on to get a dialogue for 
negotiations going between all 
peoples in South Africa. 

ThcGovemment believed the 
unconditional release of Nelson 
Mandela and other detainees 
was the key to bringing an end to 
violence and getting the di- 
alogue moving for a peaceful, 
evolutionary solution to the 
problem. 

When Mr Denis Healey, chief 
Opposition spokesman on for- 
eign and Commonwealth af- 
fairs. maintained that the Prime 
Minister had cut the ground 
from under the Foreign 
Secretary's feet and had made 
his mission impossible, Mrs 
Chalker retorted that if anyone 
had made Sir Geoffrey's po- 
sition impossible and sought to 
persuade people not even to 
meet him. it was Mr Healey. 

An angry Mr Healey con- 
tended that was disgraceful and 
after a point of aider by him 
Mrs Chalker said she would 
withdraw it. 

Mr Healey said that what the 
Minister of State must accept 
was the depth of feeling against 
Mrs Thatcher among the gov- 
ernments or the front line states 
and among many Common- 
wealth and European countries, 
which was illustrated by the 
withdrawal of Nigeria from the 
Commonwealth Grames. 

Thai is something (he said) 
the Prime Minister should be a 
great deal more sensitive about 
than she had shown in ber 
bizarre series of interviews. 


Mrs Chalker said if all MPs 
would consider the con- 
sequences of each and every- 
thing being discussed, they 
might come up with a far better 
solution than those shouted and 
barracked about by Labour 
MPs. 

When the long exchanges on 
the crisis in South Africa began. 
Mrs Chalker said the 12 mem- 
bers of the European Commu- 
nity were united in a common 
policy designed to hasten the 
progress of peaceful reform and 
to encourage the South African 
Government to begin a dialogue 
with genuine representatives of 
the black population. 

The aim of Sir Geoffrey 
Howe's mission was w try to 
establish the conditions in 
which the necessary negotia- 
tions could commence. - - 
Mr Douglas Hoyle (Warrington 
North Lab) asked if it would not 
be sensible for Sir Geoffrey to 
call off this useless charade, 
particularly as it had been 


South. O said it was a Conser- 
vative government which se- 
cured a solution to the problems 
of Rhodesia after years of abject 
failure by the Labour Party. 
Mrs Chalker said she seemed to 
remember a previous Prime 
Minister thinking he c ould ef- 
fect a quick answer, in approxi- 
mately 1965, but it took another 
14 years. 

Mr Peter Temple-Moms 
(Leominster. C). supporting Sir 
Geoffrey’s mission, said he went 
on behalf of all the EEC coun- 


make partisan points which 
does no good for the aspirations 
of the black people of South 
Africa. 

We support the action of the 
Foreign Secretary but expect 
that if he is unsuccessful, the 


Will Mrs Chalker say that she 
shares the Prime Minister's 
view ihat economic sanctions 
are not the answer? 

She should get a message 
through to the Foreign Secretary 
that he will not ask of the South 


Government will align itself African government anything 
with our Community and they cannot possibly deliver. 


condemned as a fudge by Presi- 
dent Kauri da. The ANC would 


dent Kaunda. The ANC would 
not meet him and church lead- 
ers did not wish to see him. 

Would it not be more sensible' 
if he stopped making a spectacle . 
of himself called off his visit 
and tried to persuade the Prime 
Minister to listen to what tbe 
black population wanted which 
was economic sanctions that 
were meaningful. 

Mrs Chalker said the 12 mem- 
bers of the EEC agreed on the 
urgent need for genuine di- 
alogue. It was they who wished 
to establish conditions in which 
dialogue could commence. 

When a meeting was sought 
with the ANC or any other 
group, she hoped there would be 
a positive response. It was quite 
certain that President Kaunda 
also believed that there was a 
future for dialogue and 
negotiation. 

Mr Robert Warring (Liverpool, 
West Derby Lab) asked her to 
name just one other country in 
the EEC which was doing less to 
bring pressure to bear than this 
country. 

Mrs Chalker said this country 
was certainly taking as many 
measures as many or all of the 
other countries in the EEC 
Sir Peter B laker (Blackpool 



Hoyle: Howe visit 
a useless charade 


tries with strong US links, 
representing overwhelmingly 
the majority of major trading 
partners with South Africa. 

Would she emphasize to 
South Africa that if they had not 
got the sense to listen to this, 
they might not get another 
chance? 

Mrs Chalker said the mission 
offered an important opportu- 
nity to break the cycle of 
violence in South Africa and to 
promote the veiy necessary 
dialogue and negotiations which 
ail wanted to see. The mission 
deserved the support of the 
whole international commu- 
nity. Those who wished to talk it 
down for narrow partisan rea- 
sons should ask themselves 
whether they were doing the 
cause any good at all. 


Mr Robert Adley (Christchurch, 
C): We believe that dialogue is 
better than monologue and find 
nauseating the antics of Mr 
Healey, constantly trying to 


Commonwealth friends to take 
whatever action is considered 
appropriate. 

Mrs ChalkerThe dialogue on 
which he is embarked is a 
chance, the last chance perhaps, 
to get a successful dialogue 
going. 

A steady, gradual effort is 
going on to make sure that 
everybody who can be involved 
in the dialogue is involved in the 
dialogue, which must surely 
come. 

Mr Alan Brith (Berwick upon 
Tweed. L): From what the 
Prime Minister said cm the radio 
this morning, there are no 
econom ic measures the Govern- 
ment would contemplate using 
if the visit does not achieve the 
results set out. If this is so, how 
is it helping the Foreign Sec- 
retary in his task? 

Mrs Chalker: The Prime Min- 
ister has said nothing different 
this morning from what she has 
said before. 

The Prime Minister had said 
on the Today radio programme: 
“f am and remain against 
punitive economic sanctions, 
general economic sanctions." 

She had added that -the 
Commonwealth was concerned 
that Brilain should show signals, 
what they called gestures of 
disapproval of apartheid. The 
Prime Minister had said die 
understood that and ihat the 
Government agreed and op- 
erated these as a signal to South 
Africa that the world dis- 
approved of apartheid and 
wanted it to end. 

1 can find no fault with that 
(Mrs Chalker said) because it is 
the policy of the whole 
Government • 

Mr John Carlisle (Luton North, 
Cy. All the economic sanctions 
being taken by this Government 
and others against South Africa 
ha ve already brought starvation, 
lengthening dole queues and a 
lot of misery to black South 
Africans. 


As Mrs Chalker rose to 
answer. Conservative MPs 
shouted to Mr David Winnick 
(Walsall North, Lab) to with- 
draw a remark he bad made 
about Mr Carlisle. 

Mr John Wilkinson (Ruislip, 
Northwood. C) said Mr 
Winnick had alleged that Mr 
Carlisle had been paid to put his 
question. 

Mr W inni ck was asked several 


possibilities ahead realistically 
to help to bring pressure on 
South Africa. 

Mr Healey, on a point of order, 
said Mrs Chalker should with- 
draw her disgraceful statement 
that he had sought to persuade 
African leaders not to see the 
Foreign Secretary. The High 
Commissioner in Lusaka should 
be consulted because be would 
say that he (Mr Healey) had 
spent his whole visit trying to 
persuade President Kaunda to 
receive the Foreign Secretary 
and to withdraw bis threats to 
leave the Commonwealth. 


times by the Speaker (Mr Ber- 
nard WeatheriO) to withdraw 


nard WeatheriB) to withdraw 
the remark. Mr Winnick said he 
had not changed his mind a bit 
but he would withdraw the 
remark -according to the 
Speaker’s request. 

Mrs Chalker said this was a 
serious matter and it did no 
good to cat call. 

It was the potential serious 
effects on South Africa's neigh- 
bours. in addition to South 
Africa's blacks, of general eco- 
nomic sanctions, which merited 
consultations widely and seri- 
ously about the best way to get 
effective change. 

Mr Healey asked Mrs 
Chalker if she believed the 
Foreign Secretary's chances of 
success in his mission were 
improved by the fusillade of 
interviews given by the Prime 
Minister. 

She had said she was sorry 
that South Africa was not in the 
Commonwealth and severely 
criticized the governments of 
Zambia and Zimbabwe. She had 
said she was against economic 
sanctions in general and would 
support signs and gestures but 


Mrs Chalker 1 would like Mr 
Healey to assert here and now 
that he fully supports the For- 
eign Secretary's intentions and 
his wish to meet the ANC and 
all other groups with whom we 
seek to promote dialogue in an 
effort to end apartheid. 

I said to Mr Healey (she 
continued) that. I understood 
that this had happened. If that is 
not the case I will withdraw h. 
'Mr Harry Great way (Baling 
North, Ch Nothing but blood- 
shed will be achieved unless the 
South Africa government and 



did not believe they would have 
any effect. She also said she 
hoped the Commonwealth sum- 
mit would take no action at all 
on South Africa. 

Mrs Chalker said Mrs Thatcher 
understood well the anger, the 
desperation and the hopeless- 
ness of many in South Africa 
and southern Africa. The Prime 
Minister was seeking to ensure 
that tbe Government viewed the 


Temple-Morris: There might 
not be another chance 
all sections of the community 
there can be induced to speak. 
No amount of pressure on one 
section of the community or 
another which drives them into 
the bunker will help anybody. 
What measures will bring peace? 
Mrs Chalker: 1 would be 
presumplious to try to say what 
further measures may bring 
about the much sought after 


peace we all wish. We should 
seek to continue discussions 
with our partners during this 
period leading up to the 
Commonwealth review and fur- 
ther European meetings. 

. It is only when we measure 
bow many people may be put 
out of work in southern Africa 
and how many people will be 
brought much greater hardship 
than they already suffer in South 
Africa and the front line stales, 
that we can judge what may be 
the best way ahead. 

Mr Guy Barnett (Greenwich. 
Lab): One of the arguments 
repeatedly used by the Prime 
Minister against economic sanc- 
tions against South Africa is the 
damage to the economies of the 
front line states and the people 
of South Africa. What right does 
tbe Prime Minister have to 
speak on behalf of African 
people? 

Mrs Chalker It is not just the 
Prime M mister who believes 
that general economic sanctions 
would not brine an end to 
apartheid. Mrs Helen Suzman 
said in her letter to The Times 
on July 2 that effective sanctions 
would wreck the economy and 
destroy the inheritence that 
blacks would undoubtedly share 
in the not .too distant future. 

Mrs Suzman has been an 
South African opposition MP 
since 1961 and I believe she is as 
right as tbe Prime Minister. 

Mr Mark Carlisle (Warrington 
South, Ck We regret bitterly the 
attitude of the ANC and Bishop 
Tutu in not seeing the Foreign 
Secretary. It would help if Mr 
Healey would use his consid- 
erable influence to encourage 
such meetings rather than using 
it to undermine the Foreign 
Secretary. 

Mrs Chalker The Government 
understands exactly what he 
says. I previously invited Mr 
Healey and do so again to assert 
in this House that he is very 
much in favour of the Foreign 
Secretary meeting with all those 
whom he seeks to meet. 

It takes time to set up these 
meetings between many others 
and when it is sought with the 
ANC or any other group it is to 
be hoped there will be a positive 
response which Mr Healey 
would encourage. 


Mr Healey: I thank her for 
withdrawing her earlier implica- 
tions. (Shouts from the Govern- 
ment benches oft “ She did 
noL") Yes she did.

Coherent policy for elderly needed

More monitoring and control 


COURT RULING 


The United Kingdom, as hold- j 
ers of the Presidency of the i 
European Community, was try- 
ing to achieve agreement on a 
new and legal EEC budget as 
soon as possible. Lord Young of 
Graffham. Secretary of State for 
Employment, told the House of 
Lords. 


He had been asked by Lord 
Campbell of Croy (O about the 
effects of the ruling of the 
European Court of Justice that 
the I9S6 budget was illegal. 


The minister replied that the 
ruling meant that the budget 
authority must adopt a new and 
legal budget. 


It was vital to think carefully 
about how to develop all the 
elements of public, private or 
voluntary provision into a 
coherent policy of social care for 
the elderly people who required 
them so that standards were 
improved across the frontiers of 
the three types of care, Mrs 
Renee Short (Wolverhampton 
North East, Lab) said in the 
Commons. 

Mrs Short, who is chairman of 
the Select Committee on Social 
Services, was opening a debate 
on supplementary benefit and 
private and voluntary 
residential care for the elderly. 

She said it had become clear 
that the DHSS had not yet 
established bow board and 
lodging payments would fit into 
the new structure set out in the 


and ccnainly a better system of 
gaiherins information about the 


gathering information about the 
effect of the payments was 
needed. 

Every home, whoever ran it. 
should be required to make 
much better information 
available to potential users or 
their families so that informed 
choice could be the reality. 

Sir Darid Price (Eastleigh. C) 
said growth in demand was 
certain to continue so provision 
needed to be increased rather 
than diminished. 

Might there not be a more 
positive role for the DHSS as 
inspectors, not purely in 
policing or monitoring but in a 
positive sense in a role such as 
HM Inspectorate had in 
schools? He called for more 
public money to support care in 
the community. 

Mr Archy Kirkwood (Roxburgh 


and Berwickshire, L) said tbe 
test for residential provision was 
simply one of supplementary 
benefit and not any level of 
dependence. That could not be 
an efficient use of public money. 


Minorities would feel deprived of 
part of their armoury — Kaufman 


Mr Michael Meacher, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
social services, said serious and 
disturbing problems were 
becoming increasingly apparent 
in the private and voluntary 
residential care provisons for 
the elderly as a result of the 
Government's differential 
funding approach between . 
private and public sectors. 

The Government had been 
unable to learn the basic lesson 
that no amount of tinkering 
with the system could make the 
commercial sector a major 

S rovider of services. It was the 
iovernmenl's fundamental 
philosophy and approach which ' 
was at fault. 


JURY CHALLENGE 


The Government had decided 
that it would be desirable to 
abolish peremptory challenge of 
Jurors and would include pro- 
posals with that effect in legisla- 
tion to be introduced in the next 
parliamentary session, Mr 
Doughs Hurd, the Home Sec- 
retary, confirmed in a Com- 
mons statement 
Mr Gerald Kaufman, chief 
Opposition spokesman on 
home affairs, said tharto abolish 
this right would cause minor- 
ities in particular to feel that 
they had been depri ved of an 
important part of their armoury 
of defence. 

Mr Hunt said the removal of

as a distortion of the jury 
system, which should be based 
on the principle of random 
selection. 

It seemed wrong in principle 
that jurors should be removed 
without reasons being given. It 
was also unsatisfactory that, in 
cases with large numbers of 
defendants, the composition of 
the jury should be capable of 
being influenced so 
substantially. 

Challenge for cause, the right 
of either party to seek the 
removal of a juror for stated 
reasons, would remain. 

In the White Paper on plans 
for criminal justice legislation, 
the Government had invited 
comments on concern which 
had been expressed about the 
right of the defence to challenge 
up to three jurors without giving 
cause. The While Paper had set 
out several options for change, 
including abolition of peremp- 
tory challenge, as had been 
recommended by the R os kill 
Committee on Fraud Trials. 
The Government had been 


reflecting on these options in the 
light of the response to the 


/bile Paper. 


Mr Kaufman: Tt is becoming 
more and more offensive that 
Government decisions are being 
communicated to everybody 
but the House of Commons, and 
when they are communicated to 
this House they are commu- 
nicated only grudgingly when 
we attempt to obtain the 
answers. 

In the White Paper on crim- 
inal justice tbe Home Secretary 
said the Director of Public 
Prosecutions was monitoring 
the use of peremptory challenge. 
Can he say whether the outcome 
of that survey is available, and 
whether it was available to tfae 
Cabinet committee when it 
decided to abolish the right of 
peremptory jury challenge, since 
he made dear the outcome of 
that survey was crucial? What 
are the survey's conclusions and 
when will they be made avail- 
able to the House? 

As he said that the Govern- 
ment intends to retain the right 
of challenge for cause, it has 
been pointed out by a number of 
MPs that abolition of peremp- 
tory challenge will turn chal- 
lenge for cause into a growth 
industry in the courts. 

Mr Hurd: I do not think he is 
right to get into a froth about 
procedure. We told the House 
we were considering this matter, 
and we have set out tbe options 
in the White Paper. Yesterday 
the press started to get hold of 
partly inaccurate reports about 
our conclusions and it was 
better to set the matter right. 

On the monitoring exercise; 
the first results are available, the 
monitoring is continuing and 
the results will be available for 
informed debate to the House 
when the House comes to 
consider the proposals. 

On challenge for cause, I 
know that opinion that has been 
expressed before in this House. I 
do not myself share it It is a 
theoretical supposition but one 
which will be advanced when 
the House debates the proposal. 
Mr Mark Carlisle (Warrington 
South, C): While many of us 
strongly accept the maintenance 
of the jury system, we do not 
necessarily believe that the de- 


fence have the right to decide 
who the 12 should be. There is 


who the 12 should be. There is 
the ability to manipulate the 
system .(Conservati ve cheers). 
Mr James Wallace (Orkney and 
Shetland, L): The right of 
peremptory challenge allows an 
equal chance to prosecution and 
defence. (Conservative 
protests). 

He also asked whether the 
Government intended, in cases 
where jury vetting had taken 
place, that there would still be a 
right to peremptory challenge. 
Mr Hurd said that Mr Wallace 
legitimately drawn attention to 
the prosecution right of stand- 
by. They would have to look at 



he reads the Roskill report, he L 
will see a powerful and classic 
critique against the principle Qf' 
the system. The results of the -1 ' 
monitoring will be available if-.,

proposal will restore tbe effec- 
tiveness of the principle of tbe^ 
jury system. 

Mr . Robert - Kilroy-Sifr^

Backed by Legal & General ——I 


A senior surgeon accused of 
failing to tell a woman patient 
that she had cancer later 
claimed that he must have 
confused her with another 
patient, a disciplinary hearing 
was told yesterday 
The woman, who died in 
January, was identified only 
as Mrs H. She found out she 
had cancer seven months after 
a hysterectomy performed by 
Mr Kumar Basil. 

Mr H. her husband, told the 
professional conduct commit- 
tee of the General Medical 
Council that after a doctor at 
the Royal Marsden Hospital, 
west London, broke the news. 
Mr Basu apologized. 

“My wife told the doctor at 
the Royal Marsden that she 
did not have cancer because 
that was what she had been 
told by the specialist. 

The doctor then said: 
‘Well, my dear, i am very 
sorry but you have had it all 
the time’. We were both 
completely shattered.” 

Mr Basu. who began treat- 
ing Mrs H ai die Fawkham 
Manor Clinic, Kent in August 
1984. denies serious profes- 
sional misconduct 
The hearing continues. 


The 47 rebel Liverpool 
councillors who were disquali- 
fied from office and ordered 
personally to pay a £106.103 
surcharge for delaying setting 
a rate, launched a bid for 
survival in the Court of Ap- 
peal yesterday. 

They are asking the court to 
overturn a divisional court 
ruling in March that they had 
been guilty of “wilful 
misconduct*’ by foiling to set a 
rate for 1985-1986 before the 
Government deadline. 

The divisional court dis- 
missed appeals by the then 49 
councillors against the find- 
ings of the district auditor, 
saying that they had used their 
refusal as “ a weapon to weak- 
en the resistance of the 
Government”, and had dis- 
obeyed the law for an invalid 
reason. 

Mr Louis Blom-Cooper, 
QC. for the former council- 
lors. told Lord Justice Lawton 
silting with Lord Justice Dik 
Ion and Lord Justice Woolf 
that there was a “perfectly 
legitimate reason” for the 
delay. 

He said that it was part of an 
overall strategy by the council 
to minimize the burdens on 
the people of Liverpool and 
maximize the resources avail- 


able to finance services within 
the city. They believed “with- 
out question” ihat they were 
acting within ihe law. 

Their belief arose from the 
problems of urban decay, 
characteristic of LiverpooL 
which they say are a direct 
result of government policies. 

He claimed that Mr Thom- 
as McMahon, district auditor, 
was legally bound to take the 
problems facing the council 
into account when carrying 
out his audit and was in 
breach of his duty to act fairly 
by not affording them an oral 
hearing to put their case. 

In a hearing expected to last 
10 days the judges are being 
asked to rule whether there 
was wilful misconduct In de- 
laying setting a rate and 
whether the temporary loss of 
income which resulted in the 
surcharge was directly attrib- 
utable to iL 

Mr McMahon is defending 
tbe appeal claiming that bis 
decision was valid and not 
taken contrary to the rules of 
natural justice. 

The councillors are believed 
to have received £30.000 from 


hit twice 


supporters to bring the appeal 
ind have paid more, than 


£ 1 00.000 of the £ j 39,000 legal 
hill from the previous hearing. 


Victims of crime are often, 
punished a second time by the 
ordeal of the criminal justice 
system, according to the annu- 
al report of the National 
Association of Victims Sup- 
port Schemes, which is pub- 
lished today.

The number of people aged

How to provide for the care

Providing services for elder-

and was probably economical

The fire started in a toilet -

craft was still in the air, and 
intensified when the doors 
were opened on landing. 

Toilets have long been re-

the early seventies, smoking in 
toilet compartments has been 
prohibited - and strict rules 
have been set for design of

The MPs said that they were 
astonished that neither the 
Lord Chancellor's Depart- 
ment nor the Law Society 
could say precisely what had 


caused the 200 per cent in- 
crease in legal aid spending 
between 1980 and 1985, com- 
pared with a 59 per cent 
increase in inflation during 
the same period. 

It was essential that the 
Lord Chancellor's officials 
should be able to establish the 
reasons for changes in such a 
large area of spending, they 
said. 

The all-party committee ex- 
pressed surprise at the small 
amount of reported abuse of 
the legal aid scheme. 

“However, in a situation 
where such a high degree of 
reliance is placed on the 
integrity of applicants and the 
profession therre must be sen- 
ous doubt as to whether, all 
abuse is being identified and 
reported," it said. 

It calls on the Law Society, 
which administers roost legal 
aid spending, to make sure 

there are effective checks. 

The MPs noted _ with 
“concern" the large rise in 
green form claims, from 
£1.3 million in 1973-74 to 
£44.1 million in 1984-85.

£400,000 
award to 
paralysed 
graduate 

Mr Simon Fitzgerald, aged 
26. a bnsiness la* graduate 
whose life and hopes or a 
brilliant career were wreckea 
by road accident injuries 
which confined him j to a 
wheelchair, was awarded 
£397,702 damages in the High 
Court in London yesterday. 

Mr Fitzgerald, of Broom- 
field Ride, Oxshott, Soirey, 
would have received £596,554, 
hot Deputy Judge Sir Douglas 
Frank, QC, decided he was a 
third to blame. 

The judge said that Mr 
Fitzgerald was on top of the 
world on the day of the 
accident in 1983 because he 
had just been told be was to be 
taken on the permanent stall 
of the estate agents Gas- 
coigne-Pees at their Esher 
Branch as a trainee negotiator. 

He was hoping to become a 
chartered surveyor. 

Mr Fitzgerald, an honours 
graduate of City of Lnndon 
University, was on a pelican 
crossing hi Esher High Street 
when he was struck by two 
cars travelling in opposite 
directions, the judge said. j 
He crossed when the fights I 
were against him and the “red 
man" was showing, the judge 
said. But the two car drivers 
had Tailed to keep a proper 
look-out. . . 

Because of his spinal inju- 
ries, Mr Fitzgerald is para- 
lysed in all four limbs, 
although he has some use in 
his hands. . 

“He is in daily pain. He 
experienced pain while he was 
in court for the hearing," the 
judge said. 

The damages, with costs, 
were awarded against Mr 
Vernon Lane, of Sheath Lane, 

Oxsbott, and Mr Prafnlbhai 
Patel, of Portsmouth Road, 

Thames Ditton, Surrey, who 
had denied liability. The judge 
found they were each a third to 
o blame. Lawyers for the two 
drivers said an appeal would 
it be considered.

Race hate charges 


Mr John Tyndall, chairman 
of the right-wing British Na- 
tional Party, and Mr John 
Morse, editor of the party's 
newspaper, were accused in 
court yesterday of whipping 
up racial hatred among “white 
bigots" yesterday. 

An all-while jury at South- 
wark Crown Court was asked 
by the prosecution to consider 
whether articles in the news- 
paper offended section five of 
the Public Order Act by 


publishing threatening, insult- 
ing and abusive matter aimed 
at sirirring up haired between 
Blacks. Asians or Jews be- 
tween March 1, 1984, and 
August 31, 1985. 

Mr Tyndall, aged 50, of 
Westboturne Villas, Hove. 
Sussex, and Mr Morse, aged 
35. a bus driver, of Hyde 
Close, Winchester, Hamp- 
shire. deny the charges. 

■ The trial continues today. 


Stalemate was reached yes- i 
lerday in a dispute at Risley 1 
remand centre. Cheshire, 
where on Friday 50 women ] 
officers walked out in protest 
over staffing levels. More 
widespread industrial action is ' 
threatened. Mr John. Bartell. 
national chairman of the Pris- 
on Officers’ Association, said 
that more than 100 women 
staff at Risley were now not 
working. 

In ah attempt to break the 
deadlock, he said. Risley offi- 
cials and national leaders were 
to meet Home Office officials 
today.The aim is to establish 
confidence in use of the new 
disputes procedures. . 

The Risley dispute is the 
first real test of a formula

Ruth Lawrence, aged 14,

The university confirmed 
yesterday that Miss Lawrence 
had been awarded a first class 
degree in physics after a year’s 
study. 


She took the degree because 
she had a “free" 12 months 


after completing her mathe- 
matics course, also with first 
class honours, after two years 
last summer. Each course 
normally lasts three years. 

In October she plans to 
return to St Hugh’s College to 
study for a PhD.

Rislev’s case. 

Sir Brian Cubbon. Perma- 
nent Under-Secretary at the 
Home Office, wrote to Mr 
David Evans, general secre- 
tary of the POA: "The aim of 
both sides will be for local 
disputes to be settled locally. 

The issue separating the two 
sides has focused on four cells 
at Risley and how to deter- 
mine the staffing necessary io 

hold prisoners who seek pro- 
tection from bullying by other 
inmates. ; _ 

Mr Bartell said: “The cur- 
rent talks have highlighted a 
dear need for minimum stan- 
dards to be laid down in jails. 
What happened at Risley 
shows that without them, 
highly disturbed and menially 
ill prisoners can be left^ with- 
out proper supervision." 

Women had been locked up 
without proper supervision 
due to shortages of staff. Mr 
Bartell said. 

‘Prejudice’

Britain’s hotel chiefs gave a 
warning yesterday that thou- 
sands of voungsters were miss- 
ing job opportunities in the 
trade because of poor careers

Mr George Hill, chairman 
or the National Council of the 
British Hotels Restaurants 
and Caterers Association, said 
that the industry needed to fill 
120.000 vacancies a, year. 

"The industry is battling 
against the entrenched atti-

sometimes even parents, who

ITS OFFICES? 


Rents within the Square Mile have 
never been cheap. ' * 

In fact according to a recent inde- 
pendent survey, City office space is the 
most expensive in the world. 

Whilst the constant rent reviews only 
prove that what goes up, can keep on 
ping up. 

However, you now have a rare 
opportunity to stop paying rent forever, 
by buying an office building outright at 
Canary Wharf. 

Two miles down the river in London’s 
Docklands, it will be the biggest single 
office development the world has ever 
seen, with almost ten million square feet 
of new office space. _ 

This will completely transform what 
is now an obsolete stretch of concrete 
and water into a thriving financial centre 
with shopping and leisure facilities any 
city would envy. 

Your new building there can be 
designed from scratch specifically for 
your company, using our architects, or 
your own. 

Either way it will incorporate the very 
latest in building systems and telecom- 
munications technology. 

Naturally, if you would still rather rent 
your building, we’ll be more than happy 
to accommodate you. 

You’ll find that your total occupancy 
costs will be around half those of the 
Square Mile. 

But whether you rent or buy, you’ll 
pay no rates until April 1992. 

All of which should cheer up your 
company’s prospects quite considerably’ 
(Although we can’t say the same for 
your landlord.)

Israeli efforts to illegally ex-

make cluster bombs. " 

.^Officials here said that Mr 

YSLJfS*™*' ^ ,sraeK 

Amtessador to the US, was 
called to the State Department 
on Tuesday to be told ofa US 
Customs Service investigation 
of several employees of an 
Israeli purchasing mission in 
New York City who do not 
nave diplomatic immunity. 
Subpoenas have now been 
issued on them. 

The US banned the sale of 
duster bombs to Israel after 
r reports that it had used them 
MO violation of American aid 
laws during its 1982 invasion 
of Lebanon. 

US agents are now investi- 
gating allegations that Israel 
£ - then began smuggling technoi- 
■'-’■ogy from American compa- 
nies to make its own cluster 
bombs. 

_ One of the two Iowa compa- 
nies searched on Tuesday is

and Israel. 

Jerusalem has m the past 
also categorically denied alle- 
gations of illegally trying to 
biiy US nuclear weapons 
technology. 

• JERUSALEM: Israel yes- 
terday dismissed the accusa- 
tions as “baseless” (David 
Bernstein writes). 

The Defence Ministry, in its 
official response, emphasized 
that the weapons in question 
— cannon-fired cluster shells 
which dispersed several indi- 
vidual grenade-sized charges 
over a wide area — were 
developed and produced in 
Israel using exclusively local 
technology. 

The ministry noted that 
some of the industrial equip- 
ment needed to produce the 
shells had been purchased in 
the US, but that “not a single 
item had been taken out of the 
US without the proper 
authorization.” 

It viewed with “extreme 
gravity” the fact that the 
incident had been publicized 
in the US before any attempt 
had been made to check out 
the facts with Israel, noting 
•that the airing of the matter 


The incident is the Jasl of 
several that have seriously 
embarrassed the Israeli Gov- 
ernment in recent months. 
The most serious of these was 
the arrest of an American 
intelligence analyst, Mr Jona- 
than Pollard, in Washington 
last November on charges of 
spying for Israel. 

Since then, in a case similar 
to the present one, Israel was 
alleged to have smuggled out 
of the US the technology 
needed to plate cannon bar- 
rels, and earlier this year, 
several Israelis were arrested 
in Bermuda and extradited to 
the US to face charges of 
selling American arms to Iran. 

The feeling in Israel yester- 
day — reflected in the official 
Defence Ministry statement 
and echoed by several political 
figures — was that certain 
circles in Washington were 
asked to undermine die close 
strategic co-operation that bad 
evolved between Israel and 
the US in recent years. 

This has been formalized in 
a pact between the two coun- 
tries signed in December, 
1981, and has involved close 
co-operation in a wide range 
of fields.

“I think the Palestinians

For the moment the south,

the civil war-tom country.

the convoy came to a sudden

down from the leading Jeep to

At the from line we met a

confident that the relative

The arrival of Syrian troops

Unions in 
court test 
of Pretoria 
emergency 

From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

Four of South Africa’s lead- 
ing Mack trade unions have 
asked their lawyers to test the 
legal validity of the state of 
emergency declared on June 
1Z and of the regulations im- 
plemented In its name. 

Actions brought by the Met- 
al and Allied Workers' Union 
{MAWU), the Commercial, 
Catering and Allied Workers* 
Union (CCAWUSA), the Na- 
tional Union of Mineworkers 
(NUM) and the Media Work- 
ers' Association (MW ASA), 
in the Rand Supreme Court 
challenge the order issued on 
Monday night prohibiting 
more than 30 black organiza- 
tions in the Johann esbmg and 
Roodepoort magisterial dis- 
tricts — which include Soweto 
— from holding indoor gather- 
ings. 

Seven trade unions are 
among the organizations cov- 
ered by tiie ban which, strictly 
interpreted, would make even 
routine meetings of anion of- 
ficials OtegaL unless, as Busi- 
ness Day put it in an editorial 
yesterday, “they all get sepa- 
rately into cars and drive be- 
yond the boundaries of Johan- 
nesburg and Roodepoort**. 

MAWU has launched a 
separate action in the Durban 
Supreme Court which con- 
tends that the state of emer- 
gency, and all the regulations 
enforced daring it, has been 
unlawful since June 26 be- 
cause the Government failed to 
observe proper procedures. 

These, according to 
MAWU, required that the em- 
ergency regulations should 
have been brief on the tables of 
each of the three Houses of 
Parliament in Cape Town 
within 14 days of the declara- 
tion of the state of emergency, 
j notwithstanding the fact that

Firm Hawke support for sanctions 


From Tony Dnboudm, Melbourne 


Mr Bob Hawke, the Austra- 
lian Prime Minister, yesterday 
gave his strongest support for 
sanctions against South Africa 
and foreshadowed a possible 
clash with Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher al next month's 
Commonwealth leaders' con- 
ference iu London. 

“Advocates of inaction bear 
a grave responsibility,” he told 
the Labor Party federal confer- 
ence in Hobart 
The Prime Minister said 
that there was a tendency “in 


some quarters” to regard the 
adoption of measures against 
South Africa as contradictory 
to encouraging peaceful tran- 
sition to a truly democratic 
system in that country . . . 

“On the contrary, the pur- 
pose of such measures would 
be precisely to bring borne to 
the South African Govern- 
ment that it is ultimately not 
viable to proceed along a path 
of confrontation” 

“The purpose would also be 
to demonstrate to black South. 


Africans who thirst for change 
that they are not alone and 
that they need not despair of 
achieving change by peaceful 
means.” 

As the Labor Party confer- 
ence was debating the South 
African issue, it was revealed 
that the Australian Wheat 
Board, a semi-government au- 
thority, was negotiating for the 
sale of 70,000 tonnes of wheal 
to South Africa believed to be 
worth about $10 million.

Police said the dead were 12

women and two children, 
three truck drivers and their 
helpers.

Red Army terrorists 
kill industrialist 
with roadside bomb 


A director of one of West 
Germany s most famous iu- 
ousinal firms and his driver 
were murdered by terrorists as 

Jf?L dR ? v £ K> wo* through 
the Munich suburb of Oberdfil 
yesterday. 

Bakuns. 

J8^ 56. the research and 
technology director 0 f Sie- 
mens, the electronics group 
and his driver. Herr Ecker- 
hard Groppler. aged 42, died 
when a -0 lb bomb fixed to a 
roadside tree was detonated 
by remote control as their car 
drove past. 

The explosion at 7.30 am 
nurlea the armour-plated ve- 
hicle across the road and into 
a wire-mesh fence. " 



Herr Beckons: champion of 
nuclear power's future. 


From Frank Johnson, Bonn 

The director died instantly, 
and the driver shortly after- 
wards. 

Police announced later that 
they had found a note near the 
scene, in which the “Mara 
Cagol Commando’* of the Red 
Army Faction claimed respon- 
sibility for the attack. (Mara 
Cagol was a member of the 
Italian Red Brigades. He was 
killed in 1975 at the age of 20 
during a gun battle in which 
Italian security forces had 
surrounded a terrorist gang in 
open country.) 

The Red Army Faction 
appears to be the leading West 
German terrorist group. Late- 
ly it has established links with 
other terrorist organizations, 
such as the IRA, the French 
Action Directe, and some 
Arab groups. • 

Siemens sources yesterday 
revealed that the name of Herr 
Beckurts had been found twice 
among documents discovered 
by police in raids on Red 
Army Faction cells. 

On the first occasion, the 
police took the view that he 
was in no direct danger. But 
after they raided a Hanover 
premises on January 13 this 
year, Siemens took measures 
to have Herr Beckurts protect- 
ed. At the time of yesterday's 
attack, his armour-plated car 
was being followed by a 


Hess in hospital 



From Frank Johnson, Bonn 


Rudolf Hess was yesterday 
in the British Military Hospi- 
tal in West Berlin, where he 
had been taken from Spandan 
prison. But although be is 
aged 92, his condition was said 
not to be giving rise to concern. 

He was originally reported 
to have been transferred to the 
hospital because he was suf- 
fering from heart or blood 
circulation problems. But a 
spokesman ..for the British 
Military Government in West 
Berlin said that he was in for 
observation, not treatment. ■ - 

Security was increased at 
the hospital in Chariottea- 
burger Heer Strasse. At the 
front entrance, where there is 
normally one British soldier, 
there were yesterday several 
soldiers and three West Berlin 
policemen. Hess's lawyer, 
Herr Alfred Seidi, said in 
Munich that Hess's son, 
Wolf-Rbdiger, bad been told 
on Tuesday evening of his 
lather's transfer to the hospi- 
tal. The son is allowed to see 
him once a month, and it is 
possible that the next meeting 
will be at the hospital. 

The British, Americans, 
French and Russians take 
turns to guard Hess in Span- 


tie 


dan. At the moment, 
Russians are on duty. . 

The fact that he is still living 
is die sole reason for the 
continued existence of tie 
ly old prison in the West 
suburb of Spandaa — a 
leafy residential area similar 
to’ a London suburb like 
Wimbledon. Unofficially, it 
has long been known tint tie 
bulldozers are poised to knock 
down tie prison once Hess has 
died. 

There win he no other use 
for it and tie land will pass 
ander the control of the West 
Berlin municipal authority. 

Only tie Soviet Union rel- 
ishes tie prolonged incarcera^ 
tion of Hess. The British, 
Americans and French have 
long been prepared to release 
him. But under the toms of 
his imprisonment this is not 
possible if one of his jailers 
refuses. And tie Soviet Union 
has always refused. 

Moscow has argued that to 
release him would imply exon- 
eration of Nazi crimes. Bot 
another reason is tint his 
release - like his death - 
would deny to the Soviet 
Union the presence in West 
Berlin.

US fury at 
death of 
Chile exile 

From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

The fiery death of a young 
exile, set alight by uniformed 
men when he returned to 
Chile, has generated wide- 
spread outrage here and has 
led to a hardening of the 
Administration’s policies to- 
wards the Pinochet regime. 

The White House said tie 
death of Mr Rodrigo Rojas on 
Sunday was preceded by a 
“deeply disturbing” pattern of 
events in Chile. The US was 
seeking more information 
from tie Chilean Govern- 
ment “We warn justice to be 
done," the White House 
spokesman said. • 

Mr Rojas, a US resident, 
aged 19, returned to his native 
Cnile two months ago and last 
week was involved in anti- 
government protests. He and 
Miss Carmen Quintana, aged 
18, were found badly burnt 
and near death last Wednes- 
day outside Santiago. 

Relatives and witnesses said 
the two had been picked up by 
uniformed soldiers, beaten, 
doused with- a flammable li- 
quid and set on fire. The 
troops took- blankets from 
their lorry and put out the 
human torches. The victims 
were then driven away. 

Mr Rojas was refused a 
transfer from an ill-equipped 
medical facility to a nearby 
hospital. The two victims 
were kept in a waiting room 
and relatives were told they 
could not be moved as they 
were under arrest. . 

A US doctor who examined 
Mr Rojas after his death said 
burns covered 65 per cent of 
his body. Miss Quiniana is 
still in hospital after an opera- 
tion to remove 6 lb of charred 

fl< The Chilean Army Issued a 
statement last week denying 
responsibility for the youtis 
death. Judicial authorities be- 
gan an investigation earlier 
this week. 

The death of Mr Rojas, one 
of eight killed in ami-Pinochei 
protests last week, has angered 
The Administration and may 
spur calls in Congress for sanc- 
tions against Chile. In tie past 
sTmontis the US has ban 

outspoken in cnticism^of hu- 


vehide containing men from a 
private bodyguard service. 

After tie attack it was 
immediately assumed that 
Heir Beckurts was murdered 
because of Siemens' involve- 
ment in military high-tech- 
nology for Nato. The Red 
Army Faction originally 
emerged by attacking Nato 
installations. - 

Herr Beckurts, however, 
was a nuclear physicist and 
had appeared in television 
discussions on nuclear power, 
giving rise to a second theory, 
which emerged later yester- 
day, that he died because tie 
terrorists were now exploiting 
the post-Chernobyl feeling 
against nuclear power in West 
Germany. 

Police' are searching for a 
Volkswagen van - which a 
woman eye- witness said she 
saw being driven into a nearby 
wood shortly after the blast. 

Meanwhile, tie Bavarian 
Interior Ministry has ordered 
“strict” checks on traffic 
throughout tie state and at its 
international borders, which 
are with Austria. Switzerland 
and tie communist states of 
East Germany and Czecho- 
slovakia. 

Hctt Beckurts was tie sec- 
ond industrialist to be killed 
by terrorists in tie Munich 
area within 18 months. 



Police beginning investigations into the terrorist bombing near the wreckage of the dead industrialist's armour-plated car. 


Herr Ernst Zimmerman, 
aged 55, chairman of the 
motor and turbine firm, 
MTU, was shot dead at his 
home on February l last year. 
The Red Army Faction said 
his murder was the work of its 
“Patrick O’Hara Comm- 
ando" named after an IRA 
terrorist who died in a Belfast 
prison as a result of a hunger 
strike in 1981. 

MTU makes engines for the 
Leopard, West Germany's 
main tank, while Siemens 
provides electronic equip- 
ment for it 

West German terrorists 
have killed more than 30 


. people since the First post-war 
group, tie Baader-Meinhof 
gang, began its activities in 
1971. 

Herr Friedhelm Ost. tie 
West German Government's 
chief spokesman, said Chan- 
cellor Kohl was “deeply dis- 
turbed by this cold-blooded 
murder”. 

The Chancellor believed 
such acts were a renewed 
challenge to democracy, but 
that violence and terror would 
be rejected by all true citizens. 
The Government was deter- 
mined to use all tie tie legal 
means at its disposal to fight 
such violent acts.

Poll errors 
cost seats 
of 10 MPs 
in France 

From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

Ten MPs, five on the right’ 
and five on the left, have 
forfeited their seats in the, J 
French National Assembly af- ‘ 
ter the .Constitutional > 
Council's ruling which de-. 1 
dared the parliamentary elec- ‘ 
tions in the Haute Garonne, 
and Haute Corse on March 16 
null and void because of errors ■ 
and irregularities. ! 

New elections must he held ; 
within three months. The , 
same voting system, propor- ; 
tional representation, will be > 
used as in March, although a ; 
Bill las just been passed - 
bringing hack the old system 
of two-round majority voting. 

The balance between right 
and left among the MPs who . 
have been dispossessed of - 
their seats means the new ' 
right-wing Government will be 
able to preserve its majority of « 
four seats in (he National 
Assembly, at least until the > 
by-elections have been held, P 
probably at the beginning of ; 
October. 

Thereafter, however, the ! 
Government could see its no- j 
jority further reduced. The tat- 
est polls indicate that it is al- ’ 
ready losing votes, while the ‘ 
Socialists, particularly Presi- ; 
dent Mitterrand, are gaining 
popularity. 

The Government's fortunes ; 
are not likely to improve in the - 
short term.

Poll promises 
cause dilemma 
as Nakasone 
outlines budget 

From David Watts, Tokyo 


THE TIMES THURSDAY JULY 10 1986 


Government officials yes- 
terday clashed with those of 
the ruling party over budget 
policy as manoeuvring began 
for positions in the next 
Japanese Cabinet. 

Mr Yasuhiro Nakasone, the 
Prime Minister, was sticking 
to his election commitment 
not to raise taxes when he told 
the Ministry of Finance that 
the 1987 budget must be lower 
than the current one in all 
areas except defence and so- 
cial welfare. 

But unfortunately for him, 
he also promised foreign gov- 
ernments that domestic de- 
mand would be stimulated to 
ease trade friction. He was 
reminded of this by Mr Shin 
Kanemaru. the ruling party's 
secretary-general, when he 
called for a 10 per cent 
reduction in requests for 
funds. 

Talks between the Govern- 
ment and the party will con- 
tinue to try to resolve what 
appears to be an insoluble 
dilemma, as election promises 
conflict with the need to 
reduce domestic spending. 

The need to improve the 
level of imports was under- 
lined for both parties yester- 
day with the announcement 
that Japanese exports bad 
expanded by 20 per cent in the 
first six months of 1986 to a 
record $98,674 billion, while 
imports slipped by 0.2 percent 
to $64,507 billion — mainly 
because of low oil prices. 

More significant in terms of 
the future of the Nakasone 
Government was a visit to Mr 
Kakuei Tanaka, the former 
Prime Minister who is known 
as the kingmaker, by Mr 


Susumu Nikaido, his first 
lieutenant who looks after the 
Tanaka faction in his absence. 
The two men discussed strate- 
gy for the contest for Cabinet 
positions. 

Even though Mr Tanaka 
has been effectively immobi- 
lized since suffering a stroke in 
February 1985, his faction 
gained strength during the 
election, adding some 20 
members. It, along with Mr 
Nakasone's faction which 
gained another 1 1 adherents, 
is one of the most important 
of the five main factions 
competing for posts in the 
Cabinet. 

Mr Nakasone is expecting 
to have his Cabinet organized 
. in time fora new session of the 
Diet to begin some time 
between July 20 and 22. 

The outcome of the Cabinet 
contests will give dues as to 
whether Mr Nakasone will be 
able to extend his term as 
Prime Minister, seek a third 
term in office or. as (aid down 
by the party rules, step down 
in October. 

Mr Kanemaru has already 
declared that he wants to 
resign as secretary-general. 
This may be bis way of telling 
Mr Nakasone that enough is 
enough and he should leave 
office on schedule. 

The most significant clues 
to his future, however, are 
likely to come from what 
positions his rivals — Mr 
Shintaro Abe, the Foreign 
Minister, and MrTakeshita — 
accept. If they stay out of 
Cabinet they will have a dear 
run for contesting the party 
presidency, which carries with 
it the premiership. ,

Poisonous 
gas drives 
out 17,000 

Miaraisburg, Ohio (AP) — A 
railway tank car carrying a 
chemical used in rat poison 
was derailed and caught fire 
here releasing a 1 ,000 ft cloud. 

More than 140 people suf- 
fered minor injuries in the 
accident on Tuesday. More 
than 1 7,000 were evacuated. 

Nine people were admitted 
to hospital but none was 
believed to be seriously in- 
jured. Most were suffering 
from shortness of breath and 
burning eyes from inhaling the 
white phosphorus fumes. 

The phosphorus had 
stopped burning by late eve- 
ning. 


Pravda hits at news blackout 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


Pravda yesterday launched 
a bitter attack on the lack of 
official, information on ooo- 
tinaing radiation problems be- 
ing given to residents erf the 
Gomel region of Byelorussia, 
one of the areas most seriously 
affected by the Chernobyl 
nuclear disaster on April 26. 

A hard-hitting article from a 
Pravda correspondent on the 
spot singled ont local Soviet 
newspapers and radio stations 
for particular criticism. 

He cited the example of one 
rural settlement where Soviet 
soldiers bad been surrounded 
by angry citizens demanding 
details about which vegetables 
woe safe to eat 
“The officers present had to 
give the necessary explan- 


ations,** the official Commu- 
nist Party newspaper said. 

“Why is this work not done 
by those who are responsible 
for it?” 

Pravda also quoted a region- 
al official as stating that 
residents of 48 Byelorussian 
villages had been moved ont of 
the danger zone and that seven 
of those had now been decon- 
taminated and were ready for 
the evacuees to retur n. No date 
was given when this would 
take place. 

The article was the first to 
reveal the fan extent of the 
precautions taken in addition 
to the evacuation in Byelo- 
russia. 

It lies to the north of the 
stricken reactor where work to 


encase it in concrete is con- 
tinning. 

Measures taken included 
the bermetical sealing, of 
“about 7,000** wells and the 
doubling of the number of 
public baths and tnedkal posts 
in the region. 

But although the paper 
claimed that party officials 
were now agreed that the most 
difficult period was over, it 
acknowledged that a number 
of problems remained. 

One of these was the fact 
that there were differences of 
op to 200 per emit in die rates 
of pay being offered to workers 
from different parts of the 
Soviet Union who are now 
helping in the dangerous de- 
contamination operation. 


Bourguiba 
chooses 
new heir 
apparent 

T unis (Reuter) — President 
Habib Bourguiba of Tunisia, 
aged '82. intervening unex- 
pectedly in the contest to 
succeed him. named an econo- 
mist. Mr Racftid Star, as bis 
new Prime Minister and heir 
apparent. 

Mr ' Muhammad Mzali, 
Prime Minister since 1980, 
was dismissed yesterday after 
seeing his power and inJli 
gradually curbed in 
months. 

Only three weeks ago. Mr 
Bourguiba — who has ruled 
Tunisia since it. gained inde- 
pendence from France in 1956 
— confirmed Mr Mzali. a for- 
mer schoolteacher, as Prime 
Minister and Secretary-Gener-

Mr Sfar had not appeared to 
be a front-runner in the con- 
test for the veteran President’s 
favours, although he had the 
right credentials. He was born

Greek airports used by Brit- 
ish and American tourists are 
being checked this month for 
aircraft and passenger security': 
by experts, frdm London and 
Washington. " 

The Greek authorities hope 
their findings will help them 
boost tire prospects of Greek 
tourism this year. 

A six-member staff team 
from the US Congress is 
inspecting security at Greek 
ports and airports and will be 
reporting directly to the House . 
committee oh foreign affairs. 

| A British aviation security 
expert from the Ministry of 
| Transport is due here later this 
I month to visit the main Greek 
| airports used by Britons. 

One out of every two Amer- 
ican tourists who would have 
come to Greece this year has 
now changed plans, but the 
number of Britons in the first 
five months of 1 986 increased 
by one-fifth, placing Britain 
first again in Greek tourist 
statistics. 

The fear of travel-related 
terrorism and possibly the 
effects of the nuclear leak at 
Chernobyl seem to have 
played havoc with the nation- 
ality pattern of Greek tourism 
between January and the end 
of May. 

The overall increase in the 
number of foreign tourists was 
as low as 4 per cent from 
1,750.000 last year to 
1.820.000. But when the num- 
ber of American visitors, who 


usually, spend five times as 
'much as the average tourist 
drops 6J per cent' to 62,000, it 
is little consolation Tor the 
Greeks that the number of 
Yugoslav tourists more than 
doubled to 148,000. ~ 

The sJumpin -the American 
tourist- market has hit luxury 
hotels severely as well as yacht 
charters andsea cruises. 

Western security experts in 
Athens believe Greece’s repu- 
tation will also certainly bene- 
fit from the drastic cuts in the 
personnel of the Libyan diplo- 
matic mission here, one of tire 
largest m Western Europe. . 

The Libyan embassy yester- 
day denied it had been asked 
by the Greek Government to 
reduce its staff, slating that 
decisions of this nature could 
be taken only by the “ruling 
basic people's assemblies of 
the Arab Libyan -Jamahiriya”. 

Western sources insisted 
that the mass exit of some 20 
Libyan diplomats had been 
quietly arranged, by mutual 
consent to protect both the 
special links between Tripoli 
and the ruling Greek Social- 
ists. but also Greece's need for 
better relations with the West 

The security euphoria' in . 
Athens was not marred by 
bomb threats which forced the 
evacuation of the West Ger- 
man and Dutch ' embassies 
yesterday and eventually . 
proved to be hoaxes.

Outcry over cocaine abuse 


lift sex 


From Michael Binyon 
Washington 


As America reels in shock at 
the recent cocaine deaths' of 
two young sports idols, a na- 
tional survey has revealed that 
nearly one-third of all college 
students have tried the drug 
by the lime they graduate. 

At the same time the com- 
missioner of the National 
Football League has announc- 
ed plans for compulsory ran- 
dom drug tests of all players 
this coming season, and tough 
new penalties to curb what 
many fear is a devastating new 
wave of drug-taking among 
America's top athletes. 

Widespread concern at the 
epidemic of cocaine abuse, 
spurred by the availability of a 
highly addictive distillate call- 
ed “crack”, has been highlight- 
ed by startling recent statistics. 

These show that one in six 
have tried cocaine while at 
school: the drug now has 4 to 5 
million regular users: the 
plague is costing America 
about S2S billion (£16 billion) 
a yean and more than half of 
all crime in the United States 
is now related to drugs. 

The latest figures mini the 
Government's annual drug 
survey found that, while mari- 
juana use had fallen sharply 
among students, cocaine had 
gained a "surprising and 
unsettling" foothold on cam- 
pus. Many students were un- 
aware of the dangers asso- 
ciated with the drug. Although 
daily use of cocaine still 
applied only to one-tenth of 1 


per cent of the student popula- 
tion last year, an ever larger 
number were experimenting 
with cocaine. 


It has taken the sudden and 
unrelated deaths of two top 
black athletes — both at the 
peak of fitness and opportuni- 
ty — to arouse a nationwide 
outcry. 

Len Bias, aged 22, died on 
June 19 of cocaine-induced 
cardiac arrest, two days after 
the National Basketball Asso- 
ciation ranked him as the sec- 
ond best college player in the 
country. Eight days later toxi- 
cologists found a lethal dose of 
cocaine in the body of Don 
Rogers, aged 23. a Cleveland 
football star. Each was sur- 
rounded by family and friends 
and was said to be happy and 
free of trouble. 


The death of Bias prompted 
a .police inquiry into reports 


that he was supplied with a 
huge overdose of cocaine by 
friends and associates. 

A shaken University of 
Maryland, where he played 


college basketball, has begun 
its own investigation into 
drugs on campus. His funeral 
was attended by thousands. 

Black commentators have 
warned of the special danger 
of drugs to black, unemployed 
teenagers. 

On Tuesday Mr William 
Bennett, the Secretary of Edu- 
cation, called on every college 
president to enforce strictly a 
drugs ban on campus. He said 
universities had a duty to 
parents to protect their chil- 
dren from drugs and drug 
pushers. “Parents do not ex- 
pect colleges to be neutral as 
between decent morality and 
decadence.” 

In the light of the athletes' 
death, he asked: "What of the 
role of our cultural institu- 
tions ? Our colleges . . . call to 
task the rest of society for fail- 
ing to live up to its stated 
ideals. They set themselves 
the role of moral gadfly, moral 
conscience. But what of 
them?”

Delay in Thai appeal 


Nonthaburi, Thailand (AP) 
- Thailand's Appeals Court 
will take at least a year to act 
on the case of an Australian 
sentenced to death for heroin 
trafficking, a senior court offi- 
cial said yesterday. 

If the court turns down the 
appeal. Donald Taft, aged 52, 
of Sydney, could be the first 
Westerner executed on drags 
charges in Thailand. 


Bat the Thai court official 
said: “Thailand is a Buddhist 
nation. I believe Tait's sen- 
tence win be reduced from 
death to life imprisonment” 
Tail was arrested last July 
on the resort island of Phuket. 
Police said they found AA lb of 
heroin in his suitcase, al- 
though Taft denied charges of 
possessing heroin with intent 
toselL 


the announcement on Tues- 
day of mandatory random 
unne samples. If drug use is 
found, penalties will include 
suspension and eventually a 
one-year ban on players. 

The Players Association 
condemned the plan as an 
invasion of privacy. But police 
fear drug use in schools and 
sports clubs is only a small 
part of the drug trafficking 
problem. 

“Crack” — smokeable co- 
caine — is cheap, plentiful and 
intensely addictive. Cocaine 
smuggling from South Amer- 
ica has risen 500 per cent. 

Crack-smoking houses, con- 
trolled by criminals and 
guarded by vigilantes, have 
sprung up in urban ghettoes, 
spawning violence. 

Police raids are often fruit- 
less. recovering too little evi- 
dence for prosecution. Under- 
cover investigations lead no- 
where, as crack can be manu- 
factured in any kitchen. 

Police have argued that 
courts are loo lenient and that 
public indifference and a cut- 
back, in drug preventive edu- 
cation have nullified the step- 
ped-up efforts of the Drug En- 
forcement Administration to 
stem the flow. 

But the deaths of the two 
athletes, coupled with the 
latest statistics, have made the 
war on drugs headline news 
here for the past three weeks. 
As Newsweek said, the Si 00 
billion a year drug habit is a 
“national scandal” which 
America seems powerless to 
slop. 


NZ gays 


From Richard Long 
Wellington 

After an agonizing 16- 
month debate, the New Zea- 
land Parliament last night 
passed a homosexual law re- 
form Bill legalizing homosex- 
ual acts between consenting 
males over the age of 16. 

The Private Member’s BID, 
introduced by a junior govern- 
ment whip, Ms Fran Wilde, 
.was passed by only five votes 
after lengthy, and at times ! 
acrimonious, debate. 

The packed public galleries 
rose to applaud when ft was 
announced that the Bill had 
succeeded by 49 votes to 44. 
Only one MP was absent. Ms 
Wilde was cheered when she 
emerged from the chamber 
after the vote. 

But the leader .of - those 
opposed to reform of the law, 
the Opposition MP Mr 
Graeme Lee, said after the 
vote that his supporters would 
bring a repeal BiD before 
Parliament next year or after 
the next election. In the mean- 
time, he said, his powerful 
lobby would work to unseat 
MPs who voted for the reform. 

Mr Lee said the vote was a 
dark day and MPs had ig- 
nored a petition with 800,000 
signatures, the biggest in the 
country's history, opposing the 
change. 

Ms Wilde's BiD was the 
first attempt to amend the tow 
for 11 years.

Opposition 
showdown 
in Dhaka 


From Ahmed Fazl 
Dhaka 


Bangladesh's opposition 
parties are set to call a 
showdown with the military 
Government on the streets of 
Dhaka today as the. new 
Parliament, the country's 
third, begins siting. 

General Ershad, who seized 
power in March 1 982. has said 
martial law will continue until 
the Opposition recognizes his 
Government and allows the 
330-seat House to pass a 
constitution amendment Bill 
legalizing martial rule. 

Sheikh Hasina Wazed, the 
leader of the opposition 
Awami League, has said oppo- 
sition members will boycott 
Parliament today and she 
herself will lead a pretest 
march to Parliament House. 


The Interior Ministry has 
banned all demonstrations 
within a mile of the House, in 
north Dhaka, and yesterday 
hundreds of police in riot gear 
and paramilitary security 
forces were being deployed in 
anticipation of public 
demonstrations. 


Protest rallies have also 
been planned by the former 
ruling Bangladesh Nationalist 
Party led by Begum Khaleda 
Zia. - 1

..A presidential spokesman 
later ~ said the Government 
would take “appropriate ac- 
tion” if the rebel leaders re- 
fused. He did not say what this 
action would be. 
i Mrs Aquino, however, has 
been under pressure from gov- 
ernment officials and her sup- ■ 
porters to charge Mr Tol- 
entino and his key followers 
with rebellion. 

While Marcos supporters, 
are free to. denounce her 
Government, Mrs Aquino 
said she would no longer allow 
rallies and “demonstrations 
that are not truly ah exercise 
of freedom of speech but are 
designed to further the rebel 
cause”. " - , .

“Certain people have trifled 
too long with the dignity and 
stability of the present Gov- 
ernment and the new constitu- 
tional order,” Mrs Aquino 
said. 

While grateful that the re- 
volt concluded without blood- 
shed, Mrs Aquino said she was 
“compelled by reasons of na- 
tional interest and unity to re- 
quire a pledge of loyalty to the 
constitution from the leaders 
in that illegal act of defiance” 
While the renegade officers 
and soldiers involved in the 
revolt have been exonerated, 
this does not predude General 
Ramos from taking “admin- 
istrative” action against the

The 2.8 Injection Special is a charismatic coupe with its Recaro front 
seats, leather seat surrounds, leather trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, 
sunroof and radio/stereo cassette player Not to mention those alloy wheels 
and the limited slip differential 

As for performance, let’s just say that the 2.8 injection engine gives it 
a top speed of 130 mph 1- with acceleration to match. 

Mind you, the Capri Laser is no mean performer on the road, and 
comes equipped to do you proud.

THE 






PROFILE 


EDUARD SHEVARDNADZE 


T he truism -“it is evident 
that Mr Shevardnadze is 
not Mr Gromyko” — 
offered by Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, the British For- 
eign Secretary, after they met for 
the first time in Helsinki nearly a 
year ago has taken on new 
meaning. It says a lot, both about 
the new Soviet Foreign Minister’s 
personality and the way in which 
he has operated in the post that 
was occupied by his dour-faced 
and influential predecessor for an 
unbroken period of nearly 27 
years. 

When Eduard Ambrosievich 
Shevardnadze arrives in London 
on Sunday, he will be the most 
senior member of the Kremlin 
hierarchy to visit Britain since 
Alexei Kosygin, the then Prime 
Minister, in 1967. 

His trip will be important pot 
only to those British officials 
hoping that it will cement the 
recent improvement in Anglo- 
Soviet relations but also to a wider 
international audience, anxious to 
see the role Shevardnadze will 
play after the recent and drastic 
shake-up of the conduct of Soviet 
foreign policy, which has seen 
much of the control revert from 
his ministry to the upper echelons 
of the Communist Party. 

Experienced observers believe 
that it would be simplistic to see 
the recent upgrading of the posi- 
tion of Anatoly Dobrynin, the 
former veteran Washington en- 
voy, .as necessarily implying a 
downgrading for Shevardnadze, - 
ah affable, saver-haired Georgian 
who is regarded as one of the most 
personable and innovative mem- 
bers of the Kremlin’s 12-strong 
ruling Politburo. 

“Shevardnadze’s charm and his 
relative lack of diplomatic experi- 
ence meant that from the day of 


policy rather than its chief 
creator”, a senior diplomat 
explained. 

His succession to Gromyko on 
July 2 last year came as a shock to 
Moscow's large team of resident 
Kremlinologists. causing the US 
ambassador, Arthur Hartman, 
visibly to shake his head in 
disbelief as the news was an- 
nounced in the Kremlin's impos- 
ing Palace of Congresses. The 
surprise was causal both by 
Gromyko's image as a permanent 
fixture and Shevardnadze's main 
reputation as an internal 
politician. 

With Mikhail Gorbachov both 
willing and able to shoulder much 
of the burden of Soviet diplomacy 
himself, especially in Paris last 
October and at Geneva a few 
weeks later, much of 
Shevardnadze's time has been 
spent with the more humdrum 
task of presiding over a thorough 
shake-up of the rambling Soviet 
foreign ministry. 


his appointment last July he was 
seen as a presenter of foreign 


I t is still in progress and has 
already included a wholesale 
rationalization of areas into 
which the world is divided, 
the appointment of a string 
of new-style ambassadors and the 
promotion of younger officials at 
home. The dramatic centrepiece 
of the reorganization was the 
private foreign policy conference 
held in Moscow a few weeks ago 
and attended by the heads of all 
Soviet missions abroad. Both 
Gorbachov and Shevardnadze de- 
livered speeches and although 
details remain secret, both were 
sharply critical of the conduct of 
Soviet diplomacy. 

Apart from adding dynamism 
and flexibility to his office, one of 
Shevardnadze's tasks — well suit- 
ed to his outgoing southern per- 
sonality — is to do away with the 
rigid image of the Gromyko era 


Forward more: but will foreign minister Shevardnadze prove more than one of Gorbachov's pawns? 


which earned his predecessor the , 
nickname of “Mr Nyet”. 

During the shake-up, which has 
seen the reassertion of the power 
of the central committee's interna- 
tional department under the new 
command of Dobrynin, Moscow’s 
busy rumour mill has intermit- 
tently and inaccurately predicted a 
quick transfer for Shevardnadze 
from the foreign minister's desk. 
But other, more cautious analysts 
have noted the importance of the 
organizational work he was super- 


vising at the ministry’s towering 
“Stalin gothic” headquarters. 

They expect him to emerge in a 
stronger light as a result of the 
London talks and the postponed 
pre-summit negotiations with 
George Shultz, expected within 
the next two months. The Cassan- 
dras predicting his early demise 
appear not to have taken into 
account his dose personal rela- 
tionship with Gorbachov, who 
first came into contact with his 
future Foreign Minister during 


Shevardnadze's introduction of 
agricultural experiments in Geor- 
gia in the early 1970s and who saw 
to it that he was elected a full 
voting member of die Politburo 
before his move to the foreign 
ministry (Dobrynin remains a 
antral committee secretary). 

In many ways, Shevardnadze is 
an enigma within the Kremlin 
leadership. At the age of 58, he has 
yet to show his colours in public 
and has taken a bade seat both 
because of the upheavals in his 


' ministry (which recently. lost its 
chief spokesman, Vladimir 
Lomeiko) and the attention which 
the energetic Gorbachov devotes 
to foreign affairs. •• 

“We have yet to see enough of 
Shevardnadze's performance to be 
able to make a final judgement”, a 
European diplomat said. “We 
know that he has die charm and 
the ability to handle people, but 
until now that has been used 
- mostly inside his ministry. Per- 
haps the next few weeks will lift 
the veil a little.” 

Shevardnadze was- born on 
January 25. 1928, in the small 
west Georgian village of Mamati 
near the Black Sea coast. His 
father was a tocher and he 
graduated in history before plung- 
ing into party youth work in the 
republic, long regarded as the 
most corrupt of the. 15 making up 
the Soviet Union. 

Later, he gained first-hand 
knowledge of the wheeling and 
dealing when be became minister 
of the interior and then, in 1972, 
party leader with the specific job 
of putting the republic’s house in 
order. This was a near-impossible 
task, given its long tradition of 
nepotism, black-marketeering, 
fencing of stolen properly and 
mishandling of official funds. 

Shortly before his appointment, 
a frustrated Shevardnadze -is re- 
ported to have snapped; “Is there 
anything here that is not for sale? 
If there is, I cannot think of ft.” He 
stripped senior party officials of 
illegal possessions including mil- 
lions of roubles, Mercedes Benz 
cars and luxury villas (although 
those are still a feature of the 
landscape): “We Georgians,, a 
people of farmers, heroes and 
poets, have become thieves, cheats 
and black marketeers”, he said 
when his crusade was at its .height. 

At one meeting, he expressed 
fury when he saw a glittering _ 
collection of imported watches on 
the upraised wrists of members 
taking a vote. 


S ome years after, later, he 
personally took personal 
charge of a succesful anti- 
hijacking operation 
mounted after a. plane 
was seized by a local group and 
forced to land at TbinsL Apart 
from his local reputation as a 
disciplinarian (which earned him 
the nickname of Mr Clean), he 
also caught the attention of the 
central leadership with his decen- 
tralizing agricultural reforms 
which boosted; .production.. 

His enthusiasm for economic 
. reform and his ruthless dean-up 
•campaign mirrored Gorbachov's 
approach and marked him out for 
promotion. He is one of the few 
Georgians (with the notable ex? 
ceplion of Stalin) to have held 
high office. : 

Although as Foreign Minister 
his essential -quality has been, in 
the words of one diplomat, “to act 
as his master's voice”, his thinking 
is known - to be- dose to 
Gorbachov's on a wide range of 
issues. Such empathy gives British 
Officials confidence that the Lon- 
don talks will provide valuable 
insights into the chances of sub- 
stantive progress in the key area of 
international arms controL .

Bachelors of Fop are there 
none. Nor does a Master of 
Rock exist to guide the for- 
tunes of drummers in dire 
straights. But all that could be 
changing, thanks to a guitar- 
ist -turned-lecturer whose high 
road to success is signposted: 
Bathgate, West Lothian. 


In that unlikely setting, 
Gordon Campbell — once of 
The Upstarts, now a financial 
specialist and lecturer in busi- 
ness studies at West Lothian 
college of further education — 
came op with the idea of a 
training scheme for the top 
jobs in popular music after 
inquiries from young people 
seeking a career In the pop 
world. “There was -simply 
nothing that offered a specific- 
training that would be useful”, 
he said. Now there is — the 
Higher National Certificate 
(Music Management).

good businessmen, a failure 
which has given the business a 
bad name. “There are so many 
cowboys managing groups who 
do not have experience, knowl- 
edge and skill to do the job” 
said Mr Campbell. “That is 
why you hear of so many 
people getting Into bad con- 
tracts and being ripped off.” 


Pop music management 
requires a certain flair and 
instinct hot people with those 
qualities are oot necessarily 


The first foil-time course, 
which lasts a year, begins next 
month. It will be restricted to 
IS students and is already 
over-subscribed. The course 
covers normal business studies 
such as law, accountancy, 
statistics and organizational 
psychology — the many ways 


of saying, perhaps, “don't ring 
os we’ll ring yon”. 

During the year the students 
will form their own record 
label and be encouraged to 
scout the dobs and pubs of 
Bathgate to spot the talent 
with commercial potential. 
Next year Bathgate could be a 
good place for stars waiting to

“They will assess the acts or 
artists, package and promote 
than. There's a lot to it They 
have ■ to decide whether a 
particular group was likely to 
give large income over a short 
period or should be allowed to 
develop slowly.” 

The students will use com- 
mercial studio facilities in 
Edinburgh and London. Mr 
Campbell admits the keen 
entrepreneurial ear will be 
more valuable on the course 
than perfect pitch. “Yon could 
be tone deaf yet still succeed as 
a pop businessman. Id fact 
musicians might be a bit 
frustrated on this coarse.”

In its time, the River Mersey 
has provided the power that 
generated the Industrial Revo- 
lution, and has given its name 
to a musical sound that went 
around the world. Today, it 
meanders sluggishly through a 
landscape of declining tradi- 
tional industry, and the most 
common sound along its 
banks is the daily sluicing of 
millions of gallons of raw 
sewage into its waters. 

The river has been used and 
abused for generations; a 
dumping ground for the dere- 
liction of a consumer society, 
old cars, prams, supermarket 
trolleys, and household rub- 
bish. It has been fouled by 
industry and poisoned by 
agriculture until it has the 
unenviable reputation as the 
most polluted river estuary in 
Europe. In short, it is a 
national disgrace. 

A campaign to dean up the 
Mersey Basin, 1,000 miles of 
river and waterways stretching 
from the port of Liverpool to 
the western slopes of foe 
Fennines, across a region 
housing more than five mil- 
lion people, is under way. It 
will include not just foe 
Mersey but its many tributar- 
ies. and foe aim is to clean foe 
waters so that fish will once 
again be able to survive, and 
to rid foe river banks and foe 
land alongside them of decay- 
ing and derelict buildings. 

The undertaking is enor- 
mous. It will cost more than 
£4 billion and will take at least 
25 years. When I flew with Mr 
John Tavare. foe chairman of 
the government-led clean up 
campaign, on a helicopter tour 
around the region, he repeat- 
edly pointed out problems 
that were evident even from 
1.500 feet. 

The one-hour flight above 
some of foe worst excesses in 
the country was a clear indica- 
tion that foe problem is not 
just about removing liner 
from foe streets or the graffiti 
daubed on inner city 
buildings. 

In many parts of foe coun- 
try. and especially in the 
North, today's environment is 
scarred by foe physical re- 
minders of past days when 
industry boomed unhindered 
by modem planning restric- 
tions. Tavare, foe retired man- 
aging director of a bleaching 
and dyeing company, and 
former chairman of foe CB1 in 
foe Nonh-wesu is not. howev- 
er, a romantic environmen- 
talist. 

Although a cleaned-up river 
system will provide for leisure 
pursuits and increase tourism. 


A once-healthy industrial artery has become clogged by a 
century of misuse, but a unique £4 billion campaign aims 
to restore it. Peter Davenport saw the problem from the air

Troubled water seeks flood of money: John Tavare, his problem behind him, visits the bank 


he believes the practical bene- 
fits of a more attractive land- 
scape will be that foe hard- 
nosed business of persuading 
new industry into foe region — 
in competition with more 
desirable areas like foe South- 
east Bristol, and Edinburgh — 
will become that much easier. 

“People might ask why 
should we put it right? Why 
bother at all?" he says. “This 
area was once foe centre of the 
world's industry. It gave this 
country’ its wealth. Bui foe 
river at the centre of it all was 
used and abused. The nation 
as a whole ' benefited from 


‘It is about our 
ability to do 
well again* 


what happened here, but we 
have been left with foe 
problem. 

“We have a spoil heap out 
there. Who wants to come? 
Are foe companies we need to 
provide new jobs going to get 
their highly-paid managers to 
bring their families here? It 
simply has to be done. It is not 
just about dean water and 
dean sewers. It is about foe 
regeneration of an entire re- 
gion. It is about our ability to 
do well again.' 4 

The problems are easily 
defined, but achieving the 
solution much more compli- 
cated. The Mersey Basin cam- 


paign. which embraces the 
Government. 30 local authori- 
ties responsible for land-based 
improvements and foe North- 
West Water Authority, is the 
largest programme of its kind 
undertaken in western 
Europe. 

It has already attracted £67 
million of European regional 
development fund money, the 
first gram of its kind. The 
funds to meet the rest of the 
ambitious programme will 
come from water rates, gov- 
ernment grants, the EEC and 
from those private industries 
which can be attracted into a 
joint venture with foe public 
sector. 

The condition of foe Mersey 
comes as a shock to most 
people; the discharge of raw 
sewage is more readily associ- 
ated with deprived. Third 
World nations. But foe inti- 
mate details of its disposal do 
not make for the most popular 
of after-dinner topics. Tavare, 
however, has two favourite 
anecdotes which neatly sum 
up the decline of foe Mersey. 

The first highlights just how 
clean and pure its waters once 
were. Apprentices at a river- 
side cqtion .mill in foe early 
days of the Industrial Revolu- 
tion complained of a monoto- 
nous diet of fresh salmon 
taken from the river, and as a 
result, it was restricted to 
being served on only two days 
a week. 

The other story is more 
recent. A worker at a local 


factory was tossed into foe 
Mersey as a prank on foe eve 
of his wedding day. “He came 
out. with his skin turned 
brown, and the bride refiised 
to consummate foe marriage 
until foe effects had worn off 
some lime later." 

It is no joke, however, foal 


hospital for a check up in case 
you have caught something 
unpleasant”. 

Among foe schemes already 
under way . is a £160 million 
programme to build sewage 
plants- to replace almost 50 
raw sewage outlets around 
Liverpool and Birkenhead. 

The short-term aim is to 
prevent further deterioration 
of the river water quality. The 
longer-term ambition is to 
have coarse fish back within 
25 years. At least half foe 
13,000 miles of sewers and 
most of foe 1.200 storm 
overflows in the area need 
replacing or upgrading.- 

When Michael Hesehine 
first saw foe . state of the 
Mersey and its derdict build- 
ings, he said that if it had been 
in the South-east it would.not 
have been tolerated, John 
Tavare was asked to take the 
appointment as campaign 
chairman by Heseltine’s suc- 
cessor Patrick Jenkin, who in 
turn was succeeded by 
Kenneth Baker and then 
Nicholas Ridley. When Rid- 
ley moved , into the office, 
among the first letters he 
received was one from 
Tavare, • seeking continued 
government commitment. 

Tavare’s commitment is to- 
tal and passionate. “The river 
should be magnificent. It is a 
living thing that we have done 


it is nojoke, however, tnat . our best to damage, and we 
lL/° U fell roto the Mersey have almost killed it. It has got 
today, according to Tavare, w-ht ~ B 


today, according to Ta\ 
“you really should go 


to be put right.”

nr- - - 


After seven years of research 
into the- most rewarding of 
intellectual pursuits - the 

■ works of P.G. Wodehouse — 
.Norman Murphy, submitted 
his fascinating findings to ten 

■ publishers, and they all reject- 
ed them on the grounds that 
.they were too scholarly. 

Too scholarly indeed. Is ii 
possible to be so in reference 
to The Master? These weak- 
kneed people have no doubt 
suffered the same punishment 
reserved b> Wodehouse for 
his critics, eaten by bears, like 
the children who mocked the 
..prophet Elijah. Murphv's an- 
swer was to go right' ahead and 
• publish In Search of Bland tugs 
himself. That showed them, 
and now a publisher who 
avoided the terminal fate has 
.reciiGed mailers with a new 
edition, which has the addi- 
tion of an introduction by 
Tom Sharpe, and a chapter by 
Walter S. White on the Oldest 
Member's home golf course 
(Sound View. Great Neck, 
Long Island. New York). 

With the thoroughness of a 
military campaigner. Colonel 
Murphy went back to the 
sources of Wodehouse's inspi- 
ration. using libraries, street 
maps, and the London tele- 
phone directory to look in 
vain for the name Ukridge. 
(Wodehouse was at school 
. with members of the Uridge 
family). 

Wodehouse's work has not 
been neglected. It has been 
dissected in detail, giving a 
rainbow of opinions. But the 
sellings and characters have 
never been examined so close- 
ly: and Murphy shows that

IN SEARCH OF 
BLANDINGS 
By N.T.P.Murphy 

Seeker d. 1! 'arfrurg, CI2.Q5 


while Wodehouse was a great 
imaginative writer he based 
ail —or almost all — his world 
on real people and places. He 
had. Murphy says, taken the 
advice of Bob Davis, editor of 
Munscy's Magazine in New 
York, early in his career to 
write about * the things he 
knew. 

So Murphy has found that 
there was a Bertie Wooster (a 
mixture of Wodehouse him- 
self. Lord Mildmay. the stee- 
plechase rider, and George 
Grossmilh. a man of the 
theatre and son of the 
Grossmith of Dion' cf a 
Nobody). There was a Ukridge 
and Psmith, The Drones Club 
existed (pan Bachelors’, part 
Buck's, and part The Bath): 
and the aunts, uncles, clergy, 
and servants were all there 
somewhere. 

It is Blandings, however, 
that ■ most fascinates Mur- 
phy — as it fascinated Wode- 


housc. who wrote in the 
foreword to Summer Light- 
ning. “The place exercises a 
son of spell over me. I am 
always popping down to 
Shropshire and - looking in 
there to hear the latest news. 
Nol only the house, but the 
grounds and views had to be 
right. Murphy finds that it is 
■not in Shropshire, a county 
Wodehouse knew well. 

From a short list of 26 
stately homes, he rules out the 
12 Shropshire prospects, in- 
cluding Apley Park, near 
Bridgenonh. which Anne 
E. Wood put forward in A 
Centenary Celebration, pub- 
lished in 1981- although he 
admits it was a good 
candidate. 

Taking Wodehouse's asser- 
tion that Blandings was “a son 
of mixture of places I 
remembered”. Colonel Mur- 
phy concludes that it was three 
places. It was Corsham Court 
near Bath, where Wodehouse | 
went skating while staying as a 
boy with a clergyman uncle, 
ana which has provided the 
view from the lake and the 
silhouette of a great house 
against the skyline. It was 
Weston Park. Staffordshire, 
home of an earl, but not a 
castle, with terraces, lake and 
gardens as they should be. and 
close to the market town of 
Shifnal. a perfect fit for Mar- 
ket Blandings. And it was 
Sudeley Castle in Gloucester- 
shire. a proper castle, with 
towers. 

Pui them together and you 
have Blandings. Now read the 
books. 


W hile picture books may 
make pleasant, ir 
shon-lived acquaint- 
ances. a good guide- 
book is a friend for life - or at least 
until the next edition. The trouble 
is that - with the notable excep- 
tion of the late Sir Nikolaus 
Pevsner's still flourishing proge- 
nv - there are so few worthwhile 
guide-books -now being produced. 
Lately several promising regional 
or chronological series (and I am 
not thinking merely of a certain 
illustrated index of country houses) 
seem to have become becalmed in 
sponsorship or publishing difficul- 
ties. Disturbing rumours have been 
circulating about the demise of the 
delightful Shell country guides: one 
earnestly wishes John Piper. Rich- 
ard Ingrams, ei al. well in their 
efforts to effect resuscitation. 

The latest title under this far 
from slick sponsorship is one that 
reads rather more appositely than, 
say. the “Ever- Ready Derby - 
The Shell Guide to British 
Archaelogy. by Jacquetta Hawkes 
(Michael Joseph. £14.95). Its publi- 
cation coincides with the forth- 
coming major exhibition on 
“Archaeology in Britain” at the 
British Museum. For someone like 
myself whose "period" tends to 
start in 1485. this guide-book is an 
especially welcome introduction to 
our prehistoric and Roman past. 
Following Miss Hawkes's crisply 
succinct history of archaeology in 
this country and an account of 
prehistoric and Roman Britain, 
there comes an inviting gazetteer 
i (with text by Paul Bahn and 
photographs by Jorge Lewinski) to 
over 600 sites. The point to bear in 
mind - so well brought out in 
Miss Hawkes's biography of Sir 
Mortimer Wheeler -is that ar- 
chaeology should aim “to dig up 
people" and not merely dry-as-dust 
artefacts. Incidentally, it is not only 
to the septuagenarian Miss 
Hawkes's generation that the 
changed county names and bound- 
aries “still seem strange and 
deplorable”. . 

The pipe of Miss Hawkes s late 
husband, jolly Jack Priestley 
projects pugnaciously from one of 
the illustrations in Russell 
Chamberlin's enjoyable evocation 
ofThe Idea of England (Thames & 
Hudson, exceptional value at 
£9.95). The title is taken from a 
passage in that indefatigable sight- 
seer Celia Fiennes's Journeys 
(1684-1712). If all persons, she 
wrote, “both Ladies, much more

Adam Nicolson's commen- 
tary questions much that, lies 
at the basis of our usually 
accepted way of seeing the 
countryside. Not for him the 
enriching historical detail the 
nostalgic longing for a past 
Arcadia, the worthy attempt 
to conserve. His essay chal- 
lenges what he sees as the 
limitations of the historical 
view and the either-or dichot- 
omy that limit our way of 
seeing. Somewhat too absolut- 
ist a view, but good for the

Kenneth Woodbridge's book 
Princely Gardens (Thames & 
Hudson. £30) is a case in 
point. An enormous amount 
of scholarly detail is put before 
us. but what seems to be 
missing is any feeling of the j 
passion that drove him to 
enquire. , . 

An account of the evolution 
of the French -formal style of 
garden -making that reached 
its apogee in Louis XIV’s 
Versailles, the book is a tersely 
written historical narrative 
that lakes us step by step from 
medieval origins^ to the final 
dying waves of influence on 
the classical revival of the late 
Nineteenth and early Twenti- 
eth Centuries. In it the author 
has succeeded in. building up a 
very detailed picture of what 
the garden-makers were trying 
to do at each stage and 
why.Using contemporary il- 
lustrations. he shows what the 
gardens, most of which have 
disappeared, looked like. 

Among this season's reis- 
sues two books stand out. 


Hugh Montgomery-Massingberd 
reviews good companions for those with 
the itch for sight-seeing 


\aliieing foreign parts". While the 
Americans are no longer itching, 
this might be the moment to follow 
the well-worn paths trod by the 
travellers from Chaucer to Cobbett 
and Orwell to Beryl Bainbridgfc 
celebrated in Mr Chamberlin s 
composite portrait. He shows that 
whereas England may haye 
changed, the endemic characteris- 
tics of the English have not I was 
sorry not to see any reference to the 
Eighteenth-Century onlooker John 
Loveday whose diaries and corre- 
spondence published a couple of 
years ago constitute a grossly 
underrated source. 

Another distinguished observer 
of his native land not to find a 
place in Mr Chamberlin’s illustrat- 
ed island story is Sir Sacheyerell 
Sitwell, that grand old campaigner 
against the Philistines. 

T his omission has been 
handsomely rectified in 
Sacheverell Sitwell's En- 
gland (Orbis. £15). a com- 
pilation of the poet's acute 
architectural descriptions, edited 
by Michael Raeburn, with photo- 
graphs by the lamented Edwin 
Smith. The material is organized in 
the form of a journey beginning 
and ending upon Scarborough 
sands where the young Sachie. 
“scrambling upon the rocks. first 
began to think, and hear, and see”. 

Sir Sacheverell confides in his 
preface that he can “lie awake, and . 
perhaps get to sleep" in 1 

thinking of English ca- V 
thedrals. There is surely 

the stuff of dreams in ^

multifarious designs shown were, 
alas, never executed. My favourite 
remains Sir Edwin Lutyens's mag- 
nificent scheme for Liverpool Ca- 
thedral. which had a dome 130 feet 
taller than that of St Paul's. 

This month the royal family is 
forsaking St Paul's and resuming 
what one might call the Abbey 
habit: we are faced with the usual 
spate of royal rubbish on the 
stocks. In a’ different class and 
category altogether is Elizabeth's 
Britain, by Philip Ziegler 
(Sewncs/Countrc Life Books. 
£14.95). Taking a breather after 
Mountbauen. Mr Ziegler com- 
memorates the Queen's 60th birth- 
da v. in a deceptively authoritative 
and affectionately ironic illustrated 
volume. Her Majesty, on the 
whole, remains a reassuring pres- 
ence in the background, while Mr 
Ziegler deftly stitches together a 
superior scrapbook of social histo- 
ry during her lifetime - from the 
General Strike to Live Aid.

howe'er, concerned so much 
with what Sassenachs think of as 
“castles” — or indeed “Scotch-Ba- 
ronial piles” — as with the Scottish 
equivalent of English manor 
houses. In a concise survey, he 
traces how the architectural styles 
of these lairds' homes developed 
under French, and even English, 
influences. At the end. he argues 
trenchantly for “more of the hu- 
man qualities" to be retained, 
when these buildings regrettably 
end up as museums. Happily, a not 
insignificant proportion of the 
joyfully lesser-known places in this 
most useful study are still cared for 
bv their original owners. 

’Saving the best till last, my pick 
of the recent crop of “Heritage" 
books is The English House 1860- 
1914: The Flowering of English 
Domestic Architecture, by the esti- 
mable Gavin Stamp, with excellent 
photographs by Andre 
Goulancourt (Faber. £25). This 
masterly survey of buildings still 
shamefully sneered at in many 
quarters was inspired by Hermann 
Muihesius's study of late Victorian 
British domestic architecture. Das 
EngHsche Haus. first published in 
Berlin in 1904-5. and finally trans- 
lated into English in 1979. 

M essrs Stamp and 
Goulancourt portray 
some 80 places, begin- 
ning with Blaise Ham- 
let bv John Nash, one of the 
precursors and pioneers of the early 
Nineteenth Century. Then come 
the late Victorian country 
houses - or houses in the coun- 
try — from Norman Shaw to the 
turn of the century extremes and 
eccentricities of the Arts and Crafts 
movement More classical or neo- 
Georgian houses of the period are 
also included, as well as a few town 
houses, suburban houses, and gar- 
den suburbs. Each architect in Mr 
Stamp’s pantheon - Ashbee. 
Blomfield. Blow. Bodley. Dauber, 
Lorimer. Lutyens, and an the 
rest - is represented by at least one 
characteristic house.

BiSW wick (Robert Hale. 
maMSgf £12.95). Here the esii- 
mable chronicler of 
fw Scottish seats is noL 


olution. He argues engagingly 
that. “Romantic tradition which 
was in opposition to industrial 
society is far from dead: indeed it 
thrives.” While the cost of labour 
and materials usually make the 
attainment of the quality of a house 
of 1900 an impossible dream, that 
former high quality should, in Mr 
Stamps view, be both a reproach 
and a goal. The lessons are certain- 
ly there to be learned in this eye- 
opening study. 


• Another Part of the City, by 
Ed McBain (Hamish Hamil- 
ton. £9.95). 

McBain's successful move 
from his fictional 87th pre- 
cinct to New York’s real Fifth, 
which includes Chinatown 
and Little Italy, is more than 
geographical The stylized 
squadroom formula is aban-

Author, sleuth, and victim are 
all rabbis, but the action is 


CRIME 


Marcel Berlins 

traditionally secular, and reli- 
gion doesn't spoil the fun. 
Moss, feminist lesbian, and 
jogger, is run over after bitchy 
chat-show, leaving plethora of 
suspects and motives to be 
unravelled by love-struck me- 
dia-rabbi Daniel Winter. 

• Late Payments, by Michael 
Z. Lewis (Macmillan, £8.50). 
The computer says that a 
madman is systematically 
bumping off the disabled mid 
elderly of Indiana. The splen- 
didly human Lieutenant Le-

geant meddle entertainingly. 

• Saratoga Headhunter, by 
Stephen Dobyns (Allison & 
Busby. £8.95). 

Sharp practices in American 
horse-racing town, starting 
with the beheading of a 
crooked jockey. Endearingly 
slobby sleuth Charlie 
Bradshaw investigates to save 
his own threatened skin. 
Touches of Runyon in both 
humour and characters, well- 
plotted. and a terrific feel for 
the seamier side of the sport. 


• Go Gently Gaijin. by James 
Melville (Seeker & Warburg, 
£9.50). 

Violent Middle-East politics 
intrudes into the Japanese way 
of crime. The Kobe police 
peer scrutably into the city’s 
foreign communities for guid- 
ance. providing a superior 
blend of action and Japanese 
custom. 

• A Healthy Way to Die, by 
Michael Kenyon (Hodder & 
Stoughton. £8.95). 

Frenetic homicidal antics in 
top people’s health-farm, with 
flamboyantly-clothed black 
ex-Harrovian constable, Jason 
T witty, making first appear- 
ance. Good fun, though both 


plot and Twitty could have 
done with the occasional 
valium. 

• Follow the Sharks, by Wil- 
liam G. Tapply ( Collins . 
£7.95). 

Kidnap of 10-year-old boy 
revives long-ago baseball mys- 
tery. Old family friend. Attor- 
ney Brady Coyne’s search 
leads him into a past teeming 
with unsettled scores and a 
present of violence and death. 
Up to Tapply’s high standard, 
but may be too full of baseball 
lore for the British reader.

There is a distinctly child-

black humour and debunking 
of adult institutions! Here it’s

a senior Soviet arms control 
specialist, when he faced questions 
from the floor after delivering a 
hawkish paper on Soviet-US rela- 
tions. Until early this year, Mos- 
cow had insisted that the Strategic 
Defence Initiative was such a 
departure from traditional defence 
programmes that it should be 
banned before the research stage. 
More recent Soviet statements 
have placed less stress on Star 
Wars. Chervov's replies made it 
clear that the Soviet Unions, 
official negotiating position now is 
that the US can proceed with 
theoretical research so long as it. 
does not go beyond the laboratory 
stage. This is’ getting perilously 
close to the position held by the 
British Government

Exploding the fiction of unity 


Some Alliance activists are 
wringing their hands at the dispute 
sparked by David Owen's insis- 
tence that party policy should 
specifically state that Britain re- 
main a nuclear power after' the 
Polaris system wears out. 

Owen's forthright and public 
stance has challenged the 
Alliance's line that it represents a 
"unique" political arrangement in 
which two parties co-operate so 
closely in every respect that they 
are virtually indistinguishable. 

Of course, to suggest to the 
outside world that Liberals and 
Social Democrats agree on every 
aspect of policy was always dis- 
honesL The very nature of politics 
is that political parlies are always 
discussing policies, refining po- 
sitions. and occasionally substan- 
tially changing their attitudes. 

Two parties cannot sustain the 
fiction that they agree on every 
issue all the lime. There will be 
periods when both parties genu- 
inely and sincerely differ over 
policy positions. 

It would be more honest to 
portray the Alliance as an electoral 
pact in which two parties agree a 
common manifesto and support 
each others' candidates because of 
the difficulties each faces in 
getting candidates elected under 
the British voting system. Between 
elections parties must develop 
their policies, otherwise they die, 
and it has been the refining of the 


Roge r Fox on the dispute in the Alliance 
over what its nuclear message shoold be 


SDFs defence policy which has 
caused the present dispute. 

Thus the activists appear to be 
naive about political realities, and 
foil to appreciate the necessary 
purpose of policy development 
which political parlies must pur- 
sue. On the Continent where 
coalition government is more 
common, there is continuous 
discussion between the parties. In 
Britain, this is now a permanent 
feature of local councils where no 
single party holds control. 

This process has some public 
benefits because it forces a wider 
debate about problems and pos- 
sible solutions. Final decisions are 
more likely to have majority 
support 

The Alliance s present line of 
aiwavs seeking to minimize dif- 
ferences has its roots in the period 
when the SDP was formed. There 
was the need to get Roy Jenkins 
and Shiriev Williams back into the 
House of Commons; and because . 
there was broad agreement be- 
tween the parties on most issues, 
the Liberals agreed to stand down 
at Warrington. Crosby, and 
Hillhead. 

From these small but successful 
beginnings the Alliance was bom 
and has grown. It is only now. 


when there is a serious disagree- 
ment on a policy issue that cannot 
be fudged, that the lack -of clear 
thinking at the very start becomes 
exposed. Minimizing differences 
through compromise fails when 
the public sees that the Alliance is 
divided and the difference, how- 
ever small, is magnified in the 
public's mind. 

Since 1982 the Alliance has 
benefited both parties hand- 
somely. at national and local leveL 
In elections, the Liberals have 
outscored the SDP two to one, and 
this will not change at the next 
general election, as the Liberals 
will be contesting more of the 
winnable seats. 

It is with this in mind that 
Owen’s insistence on the replace- 
ment of Polaris can be appre- 
1 dated. The Liberal Party has a 
fairly large unilateralist element in 
its ranks and theV have to be kept 
happy. The Liberal leadership 
docs this by saying no to Trident 
or any replacement of Polaris. A 
change of policy towards the SDP 
will be bound to lead to disaffec- 
tion in the ranks, it is difficult to 
see how Owen can call on voters to 
support the changes. 

Thai is only part of the problem.

Bruce Anderson on the white fears that fuel South Africa’s conflict 


Over the past 150 years, there 
have been three empires in South 
Africa — the Zulu, the British, 
and. since 1 948, the Afrikaner. But 
the Afrikaner empire is now 
passing into history, and South 
Africa’s recent troubles result 
from the attempts to create the 
political structures which will 
replace iL 

These attempts are being made 
with Lhe consdous support of the 
majority of the white community. 
On my recent visit with Denis 
Healey. I found that even since 
this time last year the white mood 
had changed. The increasing vi- 
olence has led to a heightening of 
tension. But despite the efforts of 
the far-right and the extremist 
Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging, 
there is still no sign of the much- 
dreaded backlash. Most whites are 
more committed than ever to the 
reform process. 

, Over the past few years most 
whites have come to believe that 
they are no longer entitled to 
govern the country on their own. 
They are felly aware of the need to - 
meet black political aspirations. 
They want power-sharing. ' 

Indeed, the average South Af- 
rican thinks he knows what 
power-sharing means. If he were 
told that in 10 years South Africa 
would be a federation, tike Austra- 
lia or the United States, with a Bill 
of Rights and a supreme court to 
guard iL and a free-enterprise : 
system - but with a black presi- 
dent and a black majority in the 
federal cabinet — he would find 
that acceptable. But the average 
white South African vastly under- 
estimates the difficulties of getting 
from here to there. 

Power-sharing is easier to use as 
a slogan than define as a concept, 
for at its heart is a paradox. 
Ultimately, the security of any . 
nation, external and internal, de- 
pends on its armed forces. For 
them to be deployed effectively, 
one single source must give orders, 
while everyone else obeys. At that 
level, power cannot be shared — 
only orders can. 

In long-established stable states, 
able to draw on tradition and 
consensus, these harsh facts can 
generally be concealed. Authority 
rarely faces fundamental chal- 
lenges. and has learned to conduct 
itself with restraint But none of 
that applies in Africa. 

Over the past generation, power 
in South Africa has been progres- 
sively centralized. Local govern- 
ment and regional structures have 
been abolished or created at will 
by central authority. Indeed, un- 
der the new constitution, power 
has even passed from parliament 
to the state president and his 
nominees. 

Although the South African 
judiciary has retained its indepen- 
dence,' and has on occasion stood 
up to lhe govemmenL it is 
constrained by the absence of a 
Bill of Rights. So there is no native 
tradition of separation of powers 
for South African theorists of 
power-sharing to draw on — while 


Who inherits 
the empire 
of mistrust? 



the blacks who want to gain power 
naturally think in terms of exercis- 
ing it in the way the white man 
has. To them, the whites' desire 
for power-sharing is an expression 
of their distrust of lhe blacks. 

Which of course it is. The 
whites fear that one man, one vote 
ip a unitary state, without safe- 
guards. would lead to exactly the 
same outcome as in the rest of 
Africa - a one-party state, the 
squandering of the country’s cap- 
ital stock, the destruction of their 
way of life and their hopes for 
their children’s future. They also 
believe that such developments 
would be profoundly contrary to 
the interests of most'blacks. 

It is hardly surprising that 
blacks find these fears deeply 
insulting. As they see it they have 
been deprived not only of political 
rights in their own country, but of 
human dignity. They do not seek 
revenge, however, ’only justice. 
They do not wish to deny the 


whiles a vote, they merely wish to 
vote with whites, on equal terms 
and in the same ballot-boxes. 

There is no doubting the sincer- 
ity of the wish of many black 
leaders fora colour-blind future in 
which all races would indeed share 
power by the simple act of voting 
together. However, given the his- 
tory of modem Africa, it is hardly 
surprising that the whites are 
unimpressed, and see sincerity as 
naivety. Beyond a certain poim. 
they will not yield. 

That is why the two sides are in 
conflicL Given the strength of the 
forces at work, that conflict will 
not easily be resolved. Foreign 
politicians who fail to acknowl- 
edge this will inevitably land 
themselves with totally unrealistic 
time-scales fora possible solution. 

One necessary precondition for 
a solution does exisL The whites 
are now aware of the blacks’ 
strength, and the need to come to 
terms with that. However, strange 


as it may seem in view of South 
Africa's history, a major problem 
now is that many blacks, and 
especially the township radicals, 
underestimate the whites' poten- 
tial for prolonged resistance. 

Over the past few months, it has 
become much more dangerous for 
white journalists and observers to 
move around in black townships. 
In many areas, the situation is out 
of control. A year ago. it was 
possible to negotiate safe passage 
via the offices of the local United 
Democratic From. Today, the 
situation is much more anarchic, 
and the borderlines between poli- 
tics and gangsterism has become 
increasingly blurred. 

But the feci that many town- 
ships are now out of control has 
. one very significant consequence. 
All this near-revolutionary fer- 
vour has intoxicated many young 
blacks. They now know that a 
white man is just a man. and not 
an invincible 20-foot-tall demi- 
god. They have effectively freed 
their own areas, so what is to stop 
them from pressing on to free the 
country? "We are many, they are 
few," the sentiment runs. 

The answer, of course, is that a 
great deal would stop them. The 
liberated black townships com- 
prise considerably less than one 
per cent of the country's surface 
area. To attempt to export revolu- 
tion from them to the rest of South 
Africa would lead to the instant 
crushing of the revolutionaries- 

White South Africa has not yet

revolution to be possible, one of 
two preconditions would have to 
be met — a massive loss of nerve j 
by the whites, or the creation of a 
black counter-force. Neither is 
remotely possible. 

Nor is it likely, as many young 
blacks believe, that a hero on a 
charger will arrive from the West 
to liberate them. However, unlike 
Western politicians, they can be 
excused for over-estimating the 
military utility of hot air.

South Africa's history, it is hard to 
be optimistic. But on the other 
hand, conflict at present levels will 
not destroy the country, nor will it

The whites now understand the 
need to take account of black 
power. It may be that in order for 
there to be a political settlement n 
South Africa, the blacks in turn 
will have to come to recognize the 
strength of the whites’ position.

No escape for a desperate Congress 


Washington 

The passage of the Gramm-Rud- 
man balanced budget law through 
the United Slates Congress was a 
desperate act by desperate men 
and women. This is the context in 
which this week’s Supreme Court 
ruling, striking down the heart of 
the law. must be viewed. 

A deeply-polarized Congress, 
unable to take the hard decisions 
necessary to reduce the soaring 
$200 billion deficit which sapped 
the life of the US economy, 
produced a budget-cutting 
“gimmick" designed to make the 
political process less painful. It 
was an unprecedented act: an 
admission by both houses of the 
Congress that the' US budget 
process had broken down. 

This “gimmick' or automatic 
trigger provision in the law re- 
quired mandatory across-the- 
board cuts whenever federal 
spending rose above certain speci- 
fied levels. The Supreme Court 
struck this down, declaring it 

unconstitutional. 

By a 7-2 decision, the High 
Court reaffirmed the cherished 
principles of the constitution that 
the separation of powers between 
the executive and legislative 
branches of government cannot be 
breached, no matter how gruelling 
the task or onerous the problem. 


In the 1970s, in an equally 
momentous decision, the court 
upheld the same principle in a 
crucial ruling against President 
Nixon which led to his decision to 
resign. The justices said that the 
executive had only a limited 
privilege to shield information, in 
this case the Oval Office tapes, 
from the court. 

As conceived by the Founding 
Fathers, the Separation of Powers 
Act was meant to be a system of 
checks and balances over the three 
branches of govemmenL the exec- 
utive. the legislative and the 
judicial. No one branch was meant 
to take precedence over another in 
the event of war or domestic crisis. 

Monday’s ruling by the Su- 
preme Court said what many in 
Congress had feared when the 
historic law was passed last 
December 1 1. The court said, in 
effect. “No more gimmicks, no 
more tricks, no more easy an- 
swers; Congress must do its job. It 
cannot give the responsibility 
away." This was the assessment of 
Oklahoma Congressman Mike Sy- 
rian the chief plaintiff in the 
successful lawsuit to eliminate the 
automatic trigger in the event of a 
budget-cutting stalemate. 

Broadly, the provision rejected 
by the court stated that if Congress 
and the president cdpld not agree 


on spending priorities and taxes 
that would reduce the deficits to 
specified targets, the comptroller- 
general would be authorized to 
take over. He would draw up a 
plan and order across-the-board 
cuts in defence and domestic 
programmes, social security, 
educational aid. poverty pro- 
grammes and the like, which could 
not be appealed againsL But the 
court ruled that the comptroller- 
general. who is subject to the will 
of Congress, could not be given 
this “executive" responsibility. 

The ruling raises a new set of 
difficult questions. Will Congress, 
in a mid-term election year, agree 
on the huge cuts necessary to meet 
the budget targets written into the 
law which would reduce the deficit 
to zero by 1991? 

By most estimates, the cuts 
which may have to be taken, 
under a fail-back provision in the 
legislation, amount to almost 
$40 billion. Cuts of this mag- 
nitude could wipe out whole 
weapon systems already budgeted 
bv the Defence Department and 
result in large lay-offs of federal 
employees in various congres- 
sional districts. 

But the fallback provision under 
which these cuts would be made is 
similar to the old congressional 
budget process which resulted in 


stalemate after stalemate as 
Republicans and Democrats ar- 
gued over defence spending and 
social priorities. 

Will the sponsors of the original 
legislation, those who fought to 
“restore fiscal sanity to Congress", 
be able to amend the law to 
remove the constitutional objec- 
tions? Senator Phil Gramm in- 
tends to make his next move in 
August by attaching an amend- 
ment to the debt ceiling legislation 
that would remove congressional 
authority over the comptroller- 
general and restore the automatic 
"trigger" provision. But many in 
Congress arc opposed to this. 

Finally, what will happen to the 
US economy if the spirit of deficit 
reduction is squashed? Wall 
StrceL which has been in an erratic 
falling pattern in recent days, has 
firmly wanted the administration 
and Congress that a deficit reduc- 
tion remains the economic prior- 
ity. 


The best guess is that Congress 
will continue to seek deficit reduc- 
tion measures but not nearly ofthe 
magnitude envisioned. The econ- 
omy will continue to struggle 
under deficits in the range of 
S 1 50 billion to $200 billion.

in Britain has begun to focus on

poll showed that more than 80 per 
cent of Liberal candidates favour 
decomissioning our nuclear power

that the SDP will take such an 
extreme view, so the scene is set 
for another public discussion of 
policy differences. It will be seen 
as a crack in Alliance unity rather 
than as the working out. bv 
independent political parties of 
their policy approach on specific 
issues. 

It is impossible to say whether 
these differences will be satisfac-

and those of his detractors in the

A church divided 


The Anglican Synod is tormented 
by theological differences. With 
characteristic waspishness and 
contempt for lesser Christian 
intellects, the Bishop of Durham 
has accused those who maintain 
the literal truth of two of the 
fundamental Christian creeds 
over 2.000 years of seeming to 
believe in God as a “divine laser 
beam", who is either a “cultic 
idol" and a false picture produced 
by worshippers who have gone 
astray or. if such an irrational' 
miracle-working God exists, "the 
very 1 devil". The church is also 
deeply divided over the ordina- 
tion of women as priests, and still 
feces schism. 

Anger and the fashion of secular 
non-Christian opinion infect both 
arguments. Dr Jenkins is an hon- 
est thinker who tests the ancient 
beliefs by which the church has 
survived against criteria whieh the 
contemporary secular mind ac- 
cepts as reasonable. But he does 
not seek the paths of reconcili- 
ation and understanding. 
Confrontation and intellectual 
triumphalism attract him. He 
argues harshly and his power to 
use words to hurt must be the envy 
of political polemicists. He mines 
the rich vein of contemporary 
rad i car anger. 

Similarly, the drive for woman 
priests comes hot from within the 
Christian tradition, but from -the 
angry, intense, aggressive and 
plaintive feminism in secular 
fashion which holds women to be 
diminished if there is any role 
undertaken by men that they 
cannot play. Deaconess 
McOatchey, - moderator of the 
-women’s ordination movement 
has written to the bishops of 
“growing anger and impatience”, 
declaring that it may be difficult to 
channel feelings away from "il- 
legal action". It smacks less of 
submission to a. calling than of 
threats. 

Faced with internal- divisions, 
the church seeks to avoid strife. 
The bishops’ report' on Christian 
belief affirms the majority accep- 
tance of the creeds in their ancient 
sense while catering for the li kes of 
Dr Jenkins by permitting the 
possibility of reserving judgemenL 
"We must not be too quick on the 
draw in gunning down heresy."

bury. Likewise, having foiled to

stealth through the acceptance of 
those ordained abroarL the -bish- 
ops are again seeking compromise. 

Even so. it is a church divided. 
What a relief then for if to turn to 
politics where the heresy-hunting 
gun can be drawn freely and the 
church has no responsibility for 
action and its consequences. Wbat • 
relief, in particular, to turn to 
South Africa and the cry for... 
sanctions. Here there are no 
doubts, • only overwhelming 
conviction that sanctions are the 
way to avoid bloodshed. Bishop 
Tutu says so, and here is a message 


. borne on the radical wind on 
. which the church can unite. 

So certain is the synod that it 
could not even bring itself to pass 
an amendment to its sanctions 
resolution, which would have de- 
plored the indiscriminate use of 
terror,; whether by the African 
National Congress or Pretoria. '• - 

The ANC. said the Bishop of 
Coventry, "had tried for a long 
time for a peaceful approach and 
only gradually came to violence". 

- Anything the ANC had done was 
"tiny" compared with “the 
tremendous power - of stale 
violence". So presumably the 
"tiny" bombs outside shops are 
not censurable, and as the cause of ; 
the ANC is approved without 
reservations ;as to their methods, . 
they can now feel free lo?tep up ' 
terrorism without inhibitions '

consequences, this-refusal to con- . 
demn terrorism surely smacks of ;

The synod' refuses to apply to 
South Africa the search for com- ; 
promise it brings to its own affairs. 
Knowledgeable liberal South Af- 
ricans insist that for from ending 
bloodshed, sanctions will make it : 
harder for Pretoria to make con- ■ 
cessions, quite apart from causing; , 
increased black unemployment 
and unrest Sanctions will simply ■! 
signal to the whites that no , 
benefit? but only more, violence ' 
will follow any concessions short < 
of the unconditional surrender to 
the ANC and a one-party unitary ' 
state, which they cannot accept. 

The syriod seems not to have 
noticed that the Botha govern- ! 
meat has virtually dismantled - 
social apartheid, leaving only the 
future political structure to be 
settlement in some way satisfec- - 
tory to all communities. It is naive 
to think that with one strong push 
for sanctions. Pretoria will give- 
way. Dialogue is necessary, but the 
dialogue implicit in the situation .. 
the synod would create is one in 
which one side demands and the 
o&er capitulates or resists. 

As with much else, the church 1 
(perhaps without realizing it) is , 
blown by the prevailing wind from • 
the political left and is destroying 
its capacity for being a force for 
peace by understanding all sides of 
a predicamenL The Bishop of 
Coventry reported Tutu’s state- 
ment that his country was moving 
into more repression, but forgot to 
add that-- before .the- - violence 
escalated it had been moving, 
haltingly, put of repression. 

By the nature of tiling, progress ! 
can Uot be resumed until violence 
stops. Why will the church not tell 
the ANC as much? A great deal of 
radical opinion is. of course, much 
more inierested-in the total and 
abject surrender of the .whites than 
in the avoidance of bloodshed. 
But the business of the church Is 
peace, through reconciliation, and . 
it should have the wisdom to 
know how human beings behave *

at a junction, to give way to 
pedestrians who are already cross- 
ing. Dare I put this excellent rule 
to the test in Paris? (Might be the 
last time I saw Paris.) 

Still these foreigners seem to 
have .the right idea. Here is a 
custom we could do with in 
Britain: "Normalmente non dovete 
parchcggiare a mono di 10 metri~ 
da un incrocio No parking 
within 10 metres of a junction! 
Excellent! But again one furls a 
little uncertainty. Has there been a 
traffic revolution in Italy? The last 
time I was in Rome they were 
parking their, cars not only at 
junctions but actually on the zebra 
crossings (i passaggi a strisce). 

1 believe the Spaniards order 
these things better. At any rate 
they seem sound about drinking 
and driving: "Recuerde que acpii 
hay una cstricta legislation contra 
el abuso del alcohol v que la policiq 
se muestra muy vigilante eh ■ 
hacerla cumpfir." Having seen 
those Spanish policemen. I will 
indeed take care to remember that 
the strict legislation against al- 
cohol abuse is enforced with great 
vigilance. 

As for speeding, it does appear 
from this leaflet I'm reading that 
the enforcement of moderate lim- 
its is widespread. "DaHs les villas 
ct les agglomerations, sur les 
routes avee iclairage routier: 30 
miles/h (48 km/h). " "Su altre ' 
strode, a cancggiaia singola : 60 
mietia/h (96 km/h)." " Auf Auto- 
bahnen und Strassen mil getrehn - 
ten Fahrbahnen: 112 km/h (70 
Meilen/h ). ** How many . British 
motorists in their Jaguars. Gt- 
roens. Ferraris, BMWs, or indeed 
their Escorts or Metros, would - 
keep to such shaming limits? . 
Whatever happens on British 


motorways, one can hope for a 
world elsewhere of self-control 
and good order. "Restez a une 
bonne distance du vihicu/e qui 
vous precede, en cas d'imprfvu." 
(Well that's what we would all do 
in a road full of volatile French- 
men.) "Gberholen Sie nur rechis 
und kehren Sie wieder in die linke 
Fahrspur zuruck, sobald dies ohne 
Gefahr mdglich ist. " Discipline 
again, lane discipline: overtake 
only on the right and return to the. 
lefthand lane as soon as it is safe to 
do so. How nice if all . our 
drivers ... 

Hang on, though. Something 
odd here. Germans don't drive on 
the left. This Uberholen advice 
seems the wrong way round. 

Must lake a closer look at this 
leafleL What’s this? "No se olvide 
de leer el Highway Code. " And on 
another page: "Vergessen Sie nicht 
den Highway Code zu lesen . " 

Oh. Ah. I’m so sorry. 

I see now that what I have here 
is a multilingual guide for for- 
eigners to those basic truths that 
all you law-abiding drivers. keep 
constantly in mind: the rules to be 
obeyed on British roads. 

As part of its contribution to , 
European Road Safety Year 
(which incidentally has been 
marked so for in Britain by an 


increased accident toll), the 
Department of Transport has 
produced the guide in five lan- 
gptges (y compris I'ang/ais) just in 
time for the tourists who venture 
over here with cars. It is available 
from, among others, the AA. RAC 
and tourist offices and is full of 
good things— alt the above and 
much, much more. 

A difficulty remains which the 
department perhaps prudently, 
has not touched on. When our 
Continental friends begin touring 
(Conduite a gauche! Links fahren! . 
Guida sul/a sinistra! Conduction 
por la izquierda!), having trust- 
ingly absorbed all these rules, will 
they not become disoriented and 
unnerved as they see the native 
drivers robbing, pedestrians of 
their right of way. parking with an 
almost Italian inventiveness, 
staggering from pubs to their ass, 
breaking every speed limit and 
performing dramatic feats on 
motorways? 

Something must "be. done ' to" 
uphold British honour. Painful it 
may be. but there’s nothing.forit 
but a national lapse into, lawful- 
ness, at. least until the end .of • 
European Road , Safiay Yeari- 
Bonne route!" .

■ ’ NOT JUST GAMES 


: f - - ; i. -1 


d « isit >« by Nigeria and 
rnmmA 10 "¥£* 2 ? *C 

Commonwealth Games must 
be-regretted, both in Whitehall 
and elsewhere. How many 

other countries will follow 
them k a matter for specula- 
tion. But Kenya has made it 
dear that it will not, and one 
must hope that other govern- 
ment will have the strength of 
mind to follow its example. 
"* e _ are a unique 

symbol of whatthe Common- 
wealth should be - an apoliti- 
caJ gathering of peoples, of 
different colours and creeds, 
from the world's five conti- 
nents. To damage them would 
be to damage the Common- 
wealth itself, and those who 
risk doing so should contem- 
plate the consequences first 

If damage is done, however, 
the responsibility will not lie 
with this country. Ghana’s 
accusation of British “support 
for the racist South African 
regime” — along with threats 
and rhetoric from countries in 
which corruption is generally 
more deeply-rooted than hu- 
man rights — should be ro- 
bustly rejected by Whitehall. It 
is significant that British ath- 
letes would be free to attend 
the Games, whatever their 
Government wished — as hap- 
pened at. the Olympic Games 
in Moscow following the So- 
viet invasion of Afghanistan 
six years ago. 

Britain enjoyed a visible 
trade balance in excess of £1 
billion with the Common- 
wealth last year. But it 
redistributed more than 
£443m in overseas aid — or 65 
per cent of its total bilateral aid 
programme. Economic sanc- 
tions against Britain, which 
have been hinted at, might 


inflict some economic pain. 
But they would be a double- 
edged sword likely to hurt both 
sides 

The Empire brought advan- 
tages as well as disadvantages 
to those who lay within its 
grasp. It brought benefits to 
Britain too and obligations — 
which this country has tried to 
discharge honourably. 
Psychologically if not histori- 
cally, however, the Empire was 
a long time ago and a genera- 
tion has grown up here which 
feels no post-imperial guilt and 
sees no pressing need for 
expiation. 

To accuse the West, and by 
clear implication Britain, of 
racism — as President Kaunda 
did last week — is to make a 
charge which deserves to be 
rejected as absurd. Britain is 
stumbling towards the same 
end as the rest of the 
Commonwealth — namely the 
end of apartheid in South 
Africa and the introduction of 
majority rule. We have ma- 
terial as well as moral interests 
in seeking to. secure long-term 
stability in the Cape - and that 
stability can no longer be 
achieved without the above 
goals being realized. 

It is the means to that end on 
which Commonwealth mem- 
ber-states differ. But the Brit- 
ish government’s arguments 
against sanctions, as Mrs 
Thatcher pointed out clearly in 
her television interview, are 
founded on moral and intellec- 
tual grounds of considerable 
force and respectability. Even 
blacks in South Africa are 
deeply divided on the issue of 
economic sanctions. As for 
front-line states, they have 
already made it clear that they 
would expect help from coun- 


tries such as Britain as the 
sanctions began to penalise 
them. That view seriously 
understates the severity of the 
economic penalties that sanc- 
tions would entail for South 
Africa's neighbours. And it 
ignores the likelihood that 
Britain would hardly be in a 
position to help if it lost the 
'benefits of its trade with and 
investments within South Af- 
rica. 

One should not perhaps 
think of the Commonwealth 
solely in material terms. In a 
world which has a right to be 
concerned about its 
environment, about the chal- 
lenges over how to control 
population as well as arms, 
there is something to be gained 
from mutual help. 

But those countries which 
have talked, however 
obliquely, about sanctions 
against this country or of 
quitting either the Common- 
wealth or its Games, should 
think before they threaten. 
They should also beware of 
over-valuing themselves. 
However distasteful the gov- 
ernment in Pretoria, white 
racism is not the only issue 
which should concern the 49 
states. For them to bring the 
organization to the brink of 
dissolution over what is essen- 
tially a difference in strategy 
on one issue, would be tragic, 
irresponsible and self-defeat- 
ing. 

That point has not yet been 
reached and one must hope 
that it never will be. But 
Nigeria and Ghana should be 
urged to think again before 
going down a path which 
others might be tempted to 
follow and which all might in 
due course regret 


Home Office ministers have 
for some time had it in mind to 
take action to prevent the 
abuse of the right of defen- 
dants in criminal cases to 
challenge individual members 
of the jury, and have than 
removed without reasons be- 
ing given. Until now, however, 
it has been a question whether 
the system of peremptory chal- 
lenge should be abolished 
outright or whether the num- 
ber of challenges allowed to 
each defendenl should simply 
be reduced. . 

The permitted number of 
challenges was reduced from 
seven to three in 1977 mid 
some legal opinion, including 
that apparently of the law 
officers. has tended to favour 
further cutting the number to 
one. Now, however, the Cabi- 
net has accepted the Home 
Secretary’s proposal for out- 
right abolition, and this is 
surely the right course. It was 
recommended by the Roskill 
committee for fraud trials, and 
the Cabinet has wisely decided 
to apply the reform to all 
criminal cases. 

It is, of course, a reform 
which will be resisted by the 
“civil liberties'* lobby and by 
the Labour Party , but the 
abuse of the present system to 
frustrate a fair verdict has been 
such as- to make abolition 
essential. The decision does 
not hang on any such particu- 


UNSTACKING THE JURY 


lar case as the Cyprus secrets 
trial (in which the defendants 
were acquited after multiple 
challenges) but on an 
accumulation of evidence that 
peremptory, challenge was 
thwarting rather than assisting 
justice: The scope for abuse is 
particularly evident in cases 
where there are multiple 
defendants; four defendants, 
for instance, can remove 12 
people from the jury in order 
radically to change its com- 
position in a direction 
favourable to the defence. 

The effect can be crucial in 
criminal cases tried in the 
central and Crown courts. It 
has, for instance, been widely 
used in serious obscenity 
cases, and it has had a particu- 
larly serious effect in securing 
acquittals which established 
precedents and thus dimin- 
ished the willingness of the 
authorities to bring sub- 
sequent prosecutions. (In one 
such case there were 42 chal- 
lenges to secure an all-male 
junr.) 

Those who were concerned 
to make this particular law 
ineffective did not disguise 
their technique of using the 
right of peremptory challenge 
until they got the sort of jury 
they wanted More generally in 
criminal cases, the right has 
been used to remove from the. 
jury women (particularly mid- 
dle-aged and middle-class 


women) and older people, and 
to reduce the average age of the 
jury in a way calculated to 
influence the verdict in the 
defendant’s favour. 

It will no doubt be asserted 
by opponents of the reform 
that peremptory challenge is 
useful if, for instance, there is a 
defendant accused of a sex 
offence faced by an all-woman 
or mainly woman jury, or 
where a black defendant is 
before an all-white jury. But 
that is to misunderstand the 
basic principle of the legal 
system which is not that juries 
should be representative but 
that they should be genuinely 
random. Peremptory chal- 
lenge (which the judge is 
obliged to accept) in feci 
distorts genuine randomness 
since it can be used not to 
produce a jury without bias 
but to produce one which 
looks more likely to have a 
particular viewpoint 

The safeguard that matters 
is the right of “challenge for 
cause” of jurors if there is 
reason to think they might 
approach their task with a less 
than a fair mind, and on this 
the judge rules. That crucial 
right will remain. What is 
required of a jury is a fair 
unbiassed verdict based on the 
facts and the law. It should not 
be sympathetic to, or repre- 
sentative of one side or the 
other. 


POLITICAL PROCRASTINATION 


Six years after SouthendKm- 
Sea first contracted its refuse 
collection to a private firm, the 
Environment Secretary has 
grown impatient with the pace 
of privatisation of such basic 
council functions. The Gov- 
ernment has carried out a long 
campaign of peaceful persua- 
sion on this issue. Ministers 
have made speeches urging 
councils to seek tenders; they 
have praised those authorities 
which had compared the 
performance of their work- 
forces with the private sector. 

They have set up an mno- 
vative body, the Audit 
Commission, to conduct rig- 
orous studies of the cost o 
local authority provision ana 
report back to ratepayers and 
councillors alike; and they 
have beensurpnsed, too* 
the Commission s finding that 
local authority costs are not 
uniformly high, that there a 
councils (socialist. Sheffield 

among them) nr jvate 

bins more cheaply than pnva 

firms could. Trv 

Mr Ridley now plans tony 

compulsion instead. He wan

common pattern . 
organization of e v- 

There is, undoubtedly, t 

idence that certa, ?p if 
could be belie/ performed » 

council work-forces were re- 

organized or the vw k w “ s , 
traded out. * nc . j 
offenders among 
uthoriues are m L° ndon ana 


Liverpool (but not Bir- 
mingham or Leeds). 

One might have expected 
that Mr Ridley’s recent experi- 
ence at the Department of 
Transport would have given 
him more than enough warn- 
ing that central management is 
not necessarily the best way to 
better management. . The 
Driver and Vehicle Licence 
Centre at Swansea — never 
exactly a byword for efficiency 
— was so well run that its 
workforce were in part per- 
suaded to vote for a Militant 
candidate in their union elec- 
tions. _ 

Perhaps the new Environ- 
ment Secretary should have 
pondered longer on the prob- 
lems of central administration 
before he continued the tra- 
dition of heavy-handed cen- 
tralism which has _ so 
unfortunately characterized 
this Government’s thinking 
about local administration. 

The Government's prior- 
ities are wrong. What is 
needed, with some urgency, 
are the kind of fiscal and 
procedural reforms embodied 
in its Green Paper on the 
future of finance and uie 
report of the Widdicombe 
committee. Not all the recom- 
mendations in these doai- 
ments need to be endowed for 
them to appear to be *e way 
forward, for they offer. 1116 
beginnings of a reconstruction 
of local self government. 

Widdicombe offers ways of 


making the administration 
work more effectively and 
more openly. The financial 
Green Paper, despite the diffi- 
culties of substituting a poll for 
a property tax, offers a path to 
financial responsibility with a 
greater share of the marginal 
cost of expenditure visited 
upon local voters. 

On these fronts Mr Ridley 
offers government by 
procrastination.. Like water 
privatization, action is to be 
deferred. Reforms are difficult 
But their difficulty does not 
diminish by being put on the 
shelf for some unknown pe- 
riod until after the next elec- 
tion. That phrase seems to be 
cropping up more and more 
recently. It does not matter 
whether the motive is nervous- 
ness or some expedient wish to 
clear the decks for an “early” 
election. 

The Government’s job is to 
govern not to fight elections. 
This is a tradition that has 
been broadly followed in Brit- 
ain and it is one with which the 
Prime Minister is closely asso- 
ciated - much to her credit It 
is only in recent years that 
governments have begun to 
postpone important decisions 
— not weeks, not months, but 
yean before they need to go to 
the couniiy. The present state 
of Westminster politics is un- 
comfortably reminiscent of the 
long pre-election paralysis in 
Washington DC. 


No race bias in 
employment 

From the Minister for Employ- 
ment 

Sir. I was surprised by the article 
by Digby Anderson in today’s 
Times which analysed a speech of 
mine in which he thought I 
appeared to advocate using 
taxpayers’ money to bribe con- 
tractors to employ labour on 
grounds of race. 

He ignored the fact that I 
emphasised in my speech that I 
was opposed to contract compli- 
ance and quotas for racial or any 
other groups. He spent a deal of 
space in sociological analysis of 
the phrase “black middle class” 
which did not appear in the speech 
at all. 

The pari of my speech dealing 
with construction work was con- 
cerned with value for money for 
the very large sums expended on 
inner-city building and refurbish- 
ment work. In my opinion that 
taxpayers' money is intended to 
alleviate the social problems of the 
inner cities and improve the 
quality of life of the residents. 

It is desirable therefore that it 
should be spent in ways which not 
only improve buildings but also 
give wont experience and training 
to their inhabitants. The people of 
Handswoith and similar districts 
are right to object to the role of 
spectators as their district is 
refurbished by suburban building 
workers. 

I believe that an agreement can 
be reached with contractors who 
will be very pleased to undertake 
to seek to recruit and train local 
labour for particular inner-city 
contracts. Local labour in 
Handsworth and similar places is 
bound to contain a higher propor- 
tion of black and Asian employees 
than would be the case elsewhere 
but there would be white employ- 
ees from this depressed area. 

I find it ludicrous that Mr 
Anderson should regard this as the 
beginning of a slide towards 
“reverse racist policies** as he 
claims to fear. 

Yours truly.

S African crisis 

From Dr C. F. Forsyth 
Sir, Mr John Bruce Lockhart (July 
5) asserts that the record of “most 
independent black governments 
in Africa is one of corruption, 
inefficiency and violence” and 
that “not a single democracy has 
survived”. Therefore, he urges 
caution for “is there any reason to 
think that a black South African 
government would be any 
different?" 

Mr Bruce Lockhart might, how- 
ever, pause to consider that the 
present white South African Gov- 
ernment is already corrupt (wit- 
ness the Muldergate scandal, to 
give but one example), inefficient 
(no one could describe the waste 
occasioned by decades of apart- 
heid in any other terms), and 
violent (of course). Moreover, 
South Africa is not democratic. 
What is it, one wonders, about a 
black South African government 
that Mr Bruce Lockhart fears? 

But there is a deeper flaw with 
his argument The South African 
black population differs in prac- 
tically every respect (wealth, 
education, extent of urbanisation, 
tribal background) from other 
populations in Africa. Moreover. 
South Africa's political problems 
are unique. 

Thus, even if Mr Bruce Lock- 
hart were right about the nature of 
other governments in Africa, there 
is no reason to suppose that a 
I black South African government 
i would share their deficiencies 
I unless it is accepted that black 
[ people are inherently incapable of 
good government. And that surely 
is not Mr Bruce Lockhart’s point? 
i in any event it is as bizarre to 
impute the deficiencies of other 
governments in Africa to black 
i South Africans as it would be to 
impute the deficiencies of Euro- 
pean governments to the British. 
Yours faithfully.

His shroud the snow 

From Dr Charles Warren 
Sir, It is reported (July 1) that an 
American expedition is to go to 
the north side of Mount Everest to 
look for the remains of Mallory. 
But maybe there are still some of 
us, who have been on the northern 
slopes of the mountain since the 
tragedy in 1924, who would prefer 
things to remain as they are. 

And so, to quote from T. W. H. 
Myers' epitaph on a grave at 
Grindelwald: 

Here let us leave him; for his shroud 
the snow. 

For funeral lamps he has the planets 
seven. 

For a great sign the icy stair shall go 
Between the heights to heaven.

Ebb and flow 

From Dr W. W. Van tier Merwe 
Sir. In today’s Times (July 5) you 
call the Government’s decision 
not to privatize the water authori- 
ties a “U-turn”. Could ft not be 
more accurately described as a 
“U-bend”? 

Yours faithfully.

Killing off our rural delights 


From Mr .4. R. Isserlis 
Sir. “Burford is one of the most 
charming of the Cotswold towns.” 
wrote your Property Correspon- 
dent on July 2. in an article on 
town life in an old Cotswold 
retreat. It certainly is that with its 
centre consisting almost entirely 
of lovely ancient stone listed 
buildings — over 1 20 of them. 

Yet. ironically, only a week 
before that article appeared, the 
Oxfordshire County Council had 
decided in effect that a by-pass 
scheme, desperately needed to 
protect this jewel in the national 
heritage, must be postponed until, 
at earliest, the turn of the century. 
By that time Burfbrd*s almost 
unique charm could well be 
irreparably damaged by the rap- 
idly growing flow of through 
vehicles thundering north and 
south through its high street — 
already amounting at times to 
15.000 a day. 

Almost inevitably, in the alloca- 
tion of their limited local re- 
sources the county council, as 
highway authority, felt bound to 
give priority to road schemes 
urgently needed elsewhere for the 
speeding up of vehicle flows, the 
reduction of accidents, and the 
support of development Traffic 
was evidently felt to be more 
important than tranquillity. 

Does this not illustrate a case, 
for the sake equally ofBurford and 
of other endangered towns whose 
history and beauty are part of the 
national heritage, for the making 
of a special amenity-oriented na- 
tional allocation of road-building 
resources to ensure that long-term 
conservation is not always and 
irretrievably sacrificed to immedi- 
ate expediency? 

Yours faithfully.

From Lady Gibberd 
Sir. My late husband's plan for 
Harlow, drawn in 1947 and fairly 
well adhered to since, is now at 
risk from the proposal of a major 
development on the eastern edge 
by the Harlow District Council 
with a private developer. It is 
proposed to site about 1.200 
houses on the highest ground on 
the east side of the town which will 
break and spoil the skyline, eat 
into Harlow’s rural perimeter and 
all but join up with 
Sawbridge worth.

Sex education 

From Mrs Mary Whitehouse 
Sir. Rosalind Stott, in her article 
(July 2). “Sex education that faces 
facts”, advocates that homo- 
sexuality and lesbianism are 
treated equally with heterosexual- 
ity in school sex-education les- 
sons. 

As senior mistress in a large 
mixed school 1 was one of a group 
of senior staff in the West Mid- 
lands involved in pioneering work 
in the field of sex education in the 
early sixties. Our work was based 
upon the recommendations of the 
newly published Newsam Report. 
which called for such education to 
be based on precisely those values 
now embodied in the new Educa- 
tion Bill. This is neither the time 
or place to comment on the 
disastrous years between! 

One quickly learnt, as indeed 
psychologists teach, that children 
develop sexually and emotionally 
at very different rates and that 
physical age. as such, is tittle guide 
to the needs of the individual 
child. It is the child's desire to 
know and not the curriculum, and 
certainly not the political — so- 
ciological — personal orientation 
of the teacher which should be the 

Hampton Court Hines 

From the Director of the University 
Botanic Garden, Cambridge 
Sir, The recent exhibition at 
Hampton Court makes a convinc- 
ing case for clearing and replanting 
all the trees in the semicircular 
lime-walk of the Great Fountain 
garden (letters, June 14, 23. 27) 
but not for the choice of variety. 
Almost all the time avenues 
planted in England between 1660 
and 1750 were of common lime 
(Tilia x vulgaris) and, moreover, 
of one particular form. 

Those trees which survive from 
this period at Hampton Court are 
typical. The tall narrow crown, 
strong vertical growth, gently 
arching branches and prolific 
flowering made it an excellent 
choice. 

Setting to rights 

From Mrs Wend) 1 Fitch 
Sir. With reference to Miss 
Cauchi’s request (July 3) for 
information on the correct placing 
of the dessert spoon and fork, I 
would like to query whether, in 
fact. Mrs Beeion was right in 
talking of rbe “old cusiom of 
placing a small fork and dessert 
spoon at right angles” to the knife 
and fork setting. 

Florence B. Jack (Cooking for 
Every Household. 1919) writes of 
“the necessary fork or spoon and 
fork being put before each guest” 

Open to view 

From Mr D. H. Tew 
Sir. My late friend Jean Lavault. a

ping; Harlow, Sawbndgewonh 
and Bishop's Stortford — all 
recently expanded on their perim- 
eters — will merae into one urban 
sprawl typical ofihe thirties. What 
then would have been the point of 
the careful planning of new towns 
and expanded towns and the 
defence of the green belt over the 
years since 1947? 

The secretary of state must call 
in this proposal and insist that all 
local authorities in the region get 
together with him to decide where 
and hew new development should 
take place.

From Mr A. F. Bottom ley 
Sir. The late Sir Nikolaus Pevsner 
described Southwold as “one of 
the happiest and most picturesque 
seaside towns in England”. Alas, 
infandum reportare doiorem , it is 
no longer veiy happy and may not 
for long be picturesque. 

A firm of property developers 
proposes to build 300 luxury 
houses on the banks of the river 
and on the marshes between 
Southwold and Walberswick. 
Apparently to provide for the 
repair of a threatened but non- 
commercial harbour the local 
district council have seemingly 
given this scheme their blessing if 
not active support, though the 
river mouth can never be perma- 
nently potected due to lack of 
scour and the silt driven into it by 
the sea. 

The view of Ely Cathedral has 
been saved. Can I now alert your 
readers, many of whom will know 
and love this unspoilt area of 
Suffolk, to the danger with which 
it is now faced. An action commit- 
tee has been formed at the 
instigation of the Harbour Users 
and the Suffolk Preservation Soci- 
ety but the ways of despoilers are 
such that we shall need all the help 
that we can obtain to preserve this 
section of a designated heritage 
coast and to leave to future 
generations a truly worthwhile 
inheritance. 

Yours faithfully.

determining factor. Children's 
questions on homosexuality and 
lesbianism, as bn every other 
subject, should be answered 
frankly but in a manner and in 
circumstances which specifically 
meet the needs of the particular 
child, it is his/her desire to know 
and not the teacher's will to 
indoctrinate which should be 
paramount. 

One of the dangers of the policy 
advocated by Rosalind Stott is 
that children will come to believe 
that their perfectly normal feelings 
of warmth and affection towards 
children of the same sex and the 
spontaneous physical expression 
of those feelings indicate a 
lesbian/homosexual orientation. 

Such an approach, far from 
being enlightened, can inhibit, 
through fear and anxiety, the 
child's normal progress towards 
experience and understanding of 
the sexual love which plays such a 
key role in human happiness. 
Yours faithfully.

The variety pallida, which the 
Department of Environment now 
proposes to substitute, is almost 
unknown in England, so that it is 
difficult to confirm the claim that 
it is less prone than the original 
variety to sprout from the trunk 
and to become infested by aphids. 
Most trees of common lime do 
produo; sprouts, but remarkably 
some of the old trees at Hampton 
Court do not. 

As the purpose of replanting is 
restoration, then surely for both 
aesthetic and historic reasons the 
original variety should be used. 

Yours.

immediately before the dessert is 
served. Emily Post ( Etiquette \ 
1922) says: “a dessert pjate is 
always put on the table with the 
dessert spoon or fork on it” (That, 
of course, may be a transatlantic 
variation.) 

However, in Keeping House 
With Elisabeth Craig. 1936. the 

author, although acknowledging 
the cusiom of setting dessert 
cutlery at right angles to the rest, 
admits she finds it “spoils the 
symmetry of the Table” and sug- 
gests serving individual desserts 
with the spoon or fork on the 
plate. 

In Purnell's Cordon Bleu Cook- 
ery Course, published in weekly 
pans in the sixties, Emmy Henna 
wrote: “The dessert spoon and 
fork and fruit knife (if using one) 
can be laid across the top of the 
setting, or at each side, according 
to preference and table space ” 

Personally, I think that the last 
two words dictate the arrange- 
ment. 

Yours faithfully.

ON THIS DAY 


JULY 10 1860 

On May 11 1860 Garibaldi landed 
in Sicily with his army of 1,000, 
the first step in a venture which 
led to the unification of Italy 
under Victor Emmanuel II in 
1861. The Times had sent 
Ferdinand Eber to cover the 
campaign, but after reporting the 
battle of Palermo he joined 
Garibaldi’s forces in command of a 
brigade, prompting the paper’s 
manager to write, “Surely you do 
not think that we sent you to 
Sicily to liberate the island . . 

This article was by Antonio 
Gallenga. 


THE INSURRECTION 
IN SICILY. 

[From Oar Special Correspondent.) 

Aha, June 29 

You must have a good map of 
Sicily to find out where I am. In 
order to facilitate your search, 1 
must tell you that I am writing to 
you from one of those picturesque 
towns in the interior, nestled on 
the side of the mountain, 46 mites 
from Palermo, close to the high 
road towards Cahanisetta. Cata- 
nia, and Girgenti . . . 

As you know, there are three 
columns which at this momen t are 
on their way through the island — 
one which, proceeding by the 
seashore, tends towards Messina; 
the second, which passes right 
through the heart of the country, 
by Caltanisetta to Catania; and a 
third, which traverses the island in 
a southerly direction from Palermo 
to Girgenti, and then will unite 
with the second. Behind these 
three columns is Garibaldi, orga- 
nizing new divisions aid new 
reserves at Palermo . . . 

With regular routine organizers 
the attempt to work this wonder 
would have been hopeless; not so 
with Garibaldi and his coadjutors, 
who seek unity and organization 
more in the spirit of activity and 
the energy of every one than in the 
dead forms of routine. The differ- 
ence between the two is just that 
between a complicated machine 
which cannot work unless all its 
parts be perfect in the beginning, 
and which gets invariably out of 
order when the process of cleaning 
and oiling can no longer be 
attended to, and a living organism, 
which a «mwll and simple 
beginning, growing and developing 
itself by its own interna! vitality. 

This difference has never, per- 
haps. been better illustrated than 
in the present case. Garibaldi, who 
knows no rest himself, urged the 
speedy departure, his idea being 
that the soldier wants but little if 
he is penetrated by a good spirit; he 
is impatient with those who speak 
of impossibilities . . 

. If one of the routine soldiers 
had seen the column start, he 
would have prognosticated dissolu- 
tion in a few days, and utter 
inability to proceed. Linen blouses, 
trousers in great measure ad 
libitum, shoes indifferent, not to 
say bad,**intendance" inexperi- 
enced, great longing for the flesh- 
pots and other attractions of 
Palermo, a tendency in the volun- 
teers to go backwards and shout 
rather than to proceed forward, 
and ultimately to fight — verily 
these were serious drawbacks, but 
the essential thing was done the 
column started. At Miadmeri the 
column halted for three days to 
supply, as far as possible, what was 
wanted, and then continued its 
road to VilMrate. It would be 
untrue to say that all the volun- 
teers remained, that all was got 
right, or that nothing more was 
wanted; but the column was at 
least twice as well orga n ized when 
it left Misilme ri asst its departure 
three days ago, and every day since 
a considerable improvement has 
taken place. The reminiscences of 
Palermo are becoming weaker; the 
volunteers get a taste for cam- 
paigning in a beautiful country; 
well received everywhere and feast- 
ed, the organization works better 
and better every day, and all are 
beginning to look forward instead 
of backward . . . 

The reception at this place, 
where we arrived last night, sur- 
passed by far that at the proceeding 
station. More than a couple of 
miles in advance we were met by a 
detachment on horseback, with the 
tricolour flag, which was a proof of 
good will, but had the inconve- 
nience of creating considerable 
excitement among our horses. 
Other detachments of people 
nearer to the town came out on 
foot, shouting and cheering. At the 
ascent to the town we were 
received by a band of music at the 
entrance. The municipality and 
clergy were waiting to welcome us. 
Bonfires were lit on all the heights, 
the tows was fflummated. Meat 
and wine were offered in the name 
of the town to the men, and the 
officers were feasted by their 
landlords. No doubt, the joy has 
something to do with the fear of 
the squadre, but there is no. doubt 
that the more we advance the 
greater is the participation in our 
cause. 

Sale of the century 

From Mrs Jean Bolton 
Sir. It is clear from recent letters 
that our birthday card manufac- 
turers are failing to read the signs 
of our growing longevity. 

A sturdy relative of our family 
wilL Deo volente, celebrate her 
1 J Otb birthday next January, and ! 
know before 1 start that my search 
for a numerically appropriate card 
will be fruitless. 

One shopkeeper, with 
commendable Scots enterprise, 
will offer a “do-it-yourself* ser- 
vice with adhesive numbers, but 
the effect is a trifle home-made. 

Geariy our fibre-filled, jogging, 
joyous citizens will in due course 
need a plethora of three-figure 
cards, and her Majesty will have to 
top up her stock of telegrams. 

Where (barring nuclear disas- 
ters) will it all end? 

Yours faithfully.

was re-awakening after nearly 
200 years of suppression by

came a member of the organi-

nationalists, a clandestine 
body operating in both Polish 
and Russian occupied

within the movement. 

When the Germans invaded 
the Soviet Union in 1941, and. 
the Red Army was in headlong 
retreat, the Ukrainian nation- 
alists proclaimed an indepen-

SIR IAIN SUTHERLAND 


By Andrew Wiseman 


A tiny micro-organism which 
thrives in very salty water is 
helping Israeli scientists to 
shed light on the human 
ability to perceive different 
colours. At the same time, the 
Israeli scientists are trying to 
learn more of the mechanism 
which converts light entering 
the eye into electrical energy. 

Unlike film, which needs 
different materials to repro- 
duce various colours, the reti- 
na uses jnst one particular 
compound, retinal, which has 
a similar molecular structure 
to that of Vitamin A. Whereas 
the photographic image is 
fixed forever, what the eye 
sees changes all tbe time. 

All the colours in the risnal 
spectrum can be discerned 
because this single retinal is 
chemically linked to opsin, one 
of three different proteins, 
producing rfaodospin, a light- 
sensitive eye pigment 

Each opsin affects. Che reti- 
nal in a different way, so that it 
will absorb red, green or Mae 
light Various combinations of 
the primary colours enable ns 
to perceive all the other 
colours. 

Dr Mordechai Shebes, of 
the Weizmana Institute of 
Science organic chemistry de- 
partment has already demon- 
strated in the laboratory’ for 
tbe first time that tbe retinal's 
ability to absorb primary col- 
ours could be changed ' by 
releasing different protein- 
produced electrical charges 
near the retinal molecule. 


He and his group are now 
trying to find oat how that 
happens. They are experi- 
menting with a substance pro- 
duced by a salt-water 
bacterium, Halobacierium 
haJobium, which is very simi- 
lar to tbe retinal-opsin pig- 
ment found in the human eye. 

The bacterium uses the 
light-absorbing properties of 
this pigment to gather all the 
energy it needs to live, in a way 
chlorophyi is used by green 
plants in photosynthesis. Its 
ability to absorb light, and its 
dose chemical similarity to 
rhodopsin makes it an ideal 
model for the study of hitman 
colour perception. 

By subjecting the pbotosyn-

Lord Brimefow writes: 

Your obituary of Sir Iain 
Sutherland gave the facts of 
his career. May I be allowed to 
add something about the 
man? 

A career centred on coun- 
tries under communist rule 
calls for special qualities. 

It requires a sense of ser- 
vice, willingness to be posted 
more than once to a capital 
where the political climate 
may at times be acutely un- 
congenial, discretion, careful 
behaviour, cheerfulness, pa- 
tience. the skills needed to 
interpret communist jargon, 
and the ability cautiously to 
evaluate the signs of change. 

It calls for the ability to put 
up with frustration, since 
communist regimes are at 
pains to protea themselves 
against foreign influences. 

It helps if the diplomat and 
his wife lake ah interest in the 
history, the culture and the 
people of tbe country to which 
they are assigned and make it 
their task to develop personal 
relations, within the limits of 
what is permitted, with such 
of its inhabitants as are less 
affected than bureaucrats by 
the ups and downs of inter- 
governmental relations. 

These qualities Iain and 
Jeanne Sutherland had in high 
degree. 

Iain Sutherland was a man 


of reserved and sober judg- 
ment. and it took time to 
. know him welL 

He found Moscow bis most 
interesting and challenging 
post. When he was posted as 
ambassador there, at a time of 
tension in Anglo-Soviet rela- 
tions, he determined to retain 
and develop every permitted 
contact 

He and his wife found that 
they were able to renew and 
build on personal relation- 
ships which they had first 
made in the easier conditions 
of the 1970s. 

In that way, they succeeded, 
in spile of the strains in 
official relations, in expanding . 
contacts in the world of letters 
and the arts, and Sutherland 
was glad to be able, before he 
left Moscow, to negotiate a 
new agreement on cultural 
exchanges; 

In addition, he and his wife 
travelled widely in remote 
parts of the Soviet Union, 
finding them full of interest 
and encountering much 
friendship among the people 
they met there. 

_ Despite all the years he 
lived abroad, he kept dose 
links with Scotland, and when 
he left Moscow it gave, him 
much pleasure that the Uni- 
versity of Aberdeen conferred 
upon him the honorary, degree 
ofLLD, as it bad on his father

fierce controversy. Last 
PBlit's entertaining The Re-

Devoted students of the 

detective have scrnti- 

■ized and sqnabbled.over the 

textual account of bis “death" 
and resurrection with an iaten* 
«ty worthy of die most oboes' 
sive biblical scholars. 

The apparent change in 
Holmes after an absence of 
three years is mm of the 
problems. He seems complete- 
ly owed, not only of .his 
addiction to cocaine and mor~ 
pbine bat also of bis unsocia- 
ble habits of playing the violin 
and of quoting in French and 
German. His knowledge of 
borse-raring, so formidable in 
The Silver. Blaze, appears to 
have left him at the Reich- 
enbach Falls. 

. Watson’s flawed spelling 
does not help dth» by imply- 
mg that Holmes in exile 
developed an unhealthy inter- 
est in animals when “visiting 1 
Lhassa and spending some 
days with the head Mam* 
[*fcr. Misspelling, however, 
cannot explain Holmes's fhhu 
that he [mid “a short visit to 
the Khalifa at Khartoum"’ 
when, as we all know, the 
Khalifa in 1893 was at Omdnr- 
— ti. ' Such inconsistencies 
have led some to argue that the 
resurrected Holmes is an im- 
postor - a beneficent one far 
those who think Mycroft per- 
suaded a cousin to take op the 
magnifying glass, an evil one 
for those who believe that 
Monarty survived to imper- 
sonate the great detective. 

However, the read surprise 
of last night’s second coming 
was not any change in our 
bero, who remains, as in the 
previous series, reincarnated 
in the chiselled features of the 
excellent Jeremy Brett What 
was astonishing, though, was 
thecomplete transformation of 
Watson, who seemed quite a 
different person — which in- 
. deed he. was since Edward 
Hardwicfce has taken over the 
role of the good doctor from 
David Bnrke. 

Of course, as far as film and 
television is concerned, this is 
the umpteenth return of the 
famous double act The ten-

celebrated Basil Rath bone/

buffoon than in the books. 
Hardwicke's Watson, howev- 
er, appears less of a fool than 
many of his predecessors, even 
his immediate one. The script- 
writer,' John Hawkesworth, 
has given him a greater role in 
the affair of the murder of 
Ronald Adair by making him 
the police surgeon in the case. 
And Watson is even allowed to 
show, a little pique about 
Hofaaes’s telling Mycroft, hot

customary emotion: he even

Problem of scale in 





A Midsummer 
Night’s Dream 
Stratford 

"Out of this wood do not 
desire to go", warns Tilania. 
Bui nobody had taken much 
notice of her from the time 
Peter Brook led the play out of 
pastoral captivity in! the 1970s 
up to this year's uproariously 
urban Regent’s Park version 
and the severely geometrical 
Covent Garden staging of 
Britten's opera. 7f any director 
wanted to do something really 
bold with the Dream, it would 
be to restore the comedy to a 
wood near Athens. Stratford 
has now taken this plunge in 
the latest product of the Bill 
Alexander-Williara Dudley 
partnership. 

The show opens with the 
sight of Theseus's court in 
evening suits and long satin 
dresses set against an artfully- 
lit classical facade... Then the 
masonry departs upwards re- 
vealing the secrets of Mr 
Dudley's magic wood. As 
disclosed by John Higgins on 
this page on June 30, it is an 
exercise in post-Arthur Rack- 
ham fantasy. Huge leaves 
form beds for the fairies, seed- 


pods glow like lanterns and a 
giant spider's web overhangs 
the scene which, in the back- 
ground. reveals a gypsy cara- 
van with lights winking on the 
plate-racks. 

Already, that last detail 
suggests a certain problem 
with scale. Is it a fairy-sized 
caravan: and, if so. how are 
the humans to be scaled down 
when they arrive? Or are they 
supposed lo have shrunk? Mr 
Alexander's production sup- 
plies no answer. The point 
about that 'wood is that it is 
meant to be pretty. Otherwise, 
the idea insistently comes 
through that you can get away 
with anything in a dream. 

The main directorial deci- 
sion is to retain two actors for 
Theseus and Oberon while 
doubling the roles of Hippofy- 
ta and Titania. In other words, 
what happens in the wood 
represents fantasies Hippoiyta 
has to suppress in waking life. 

At the outset. Janet McTeer 
gives a hint of what is to come 
when she shoots a poisonous 
glance at her consort for 
backing up Egeus's threats 
against his rebel daughter. 
When we get to the woods, the 
long, evening gloves really 
come off; and Miss McTeer 
changes from a supercilious 
ice-maiden into a fairy virago 


in a lowering rage who pins 
Oberon to the ground with a 
silvery foot. Evidently she 
does not much want Oberon 
either, having already ex- 
changed meaningful glances 
with Bottom (Pete Poslie- 
lhwaiie in cords and patched 
sports-jacket) as he arrives for 
his day's .rehearsal at the 
palace. 

There may be successful 
ways of turning the Dream 
into Titania's play, but the 
method adopted here lays an 
axe to its central structure. 
Instead of a comedy celebrat- 
ing marriage, the production 
perverts the action into a 
study of compensation fanta- 
sy. and its contours start 
dissolving. Titania would evi- 
dently have fancied a piece of 
rough trade even without the 
spell. Likewise. Bottom devel- 
ops an untoward strain of 
winsome romanticism in her 
company, voice throbbing 
with sincerity as he clasps the 
hands of the little shepherdess, 
sailor-suited lot. mildewed 
lift-boy and the other lost 
children who comprise the 
fairy retinue. Combined with 
the kind of music you used to 
hear on Children's Hour, it is 
like something out of Eleanor 
Faijeon. 

These are no foundations

Meaningful glances: Pete PosdethwaJte and Janet McTeer as Bottom and Titania 


on which to build the finale. 
And I have never seen the 
mechanicals' play fall so flat. 
As the court audience is 
grouped on both sides, they 
have to shout their insults 
over the actors. Instead of 
comic business. Mr Alexander 
has Quince conducting a 
scratch band: the only joke is 
that they cannot play. 

The crowning absurdity 
comes at the end when the 


immortals invade- the human 
party. Framed on the thresh- 
old against the moonlit wood, 
they make -a magical picture. 
But. then Oberon advances 
into the room, and Miss 
McTeer excuses herself from 
Theseus and rejoins the fairy 
king. 

Far from celebrating a nup- 
tial, the scene now presents an 
abduction by the demon 
lover. 


1 should like to wind up this 
catalogue of grievances by 
acknowledging . some plea- 
sures. But apart from Nicholas 
Woodeson's sparkishly good- 
natured Puck, and a magnifi- 
cently apoplectic Egeus from 
Robert Demeger (one of the 
company's most interesting 
recent recruitsX the text is 
largely swamped in monoto- 
nous anger. 

There is a bossily self- 


dramatizing Hermia (Amanda 
Harris) partnered by a Ly sen- 
der (Paul Greenwood) who 
knocks her out with a blow to 
the jaw. Gerard Murphy's 
Oberon pulsates with fury, 
reaching one of his most 
ferocious climaxes with “all 
things shall be peace". 

Dreaming these immortals 
may be; unearthly they are

^Publishing appears to be going 
through the San Francisco Earth- 
quake". declared the tanned edito- 
rial director as he eased h is 
elongated frame lower in his chair 
in Faber and Faber's modern plate- 
glass offices. “This is 1906". Rob- 
ert McCrum added as if to confirm 
that his habitat seemed more suited 
to Malcolm Bradbury's .history 
men than to the heirs of T. S. Eliot 
Faber’s Chairman. Matthew Evans, 
came in and sat on the only relic 
from early glories on parade, an 
ancient chair whose cavernous 
crater of a seat suggested forebears 
weighty in bottom as well as 
intellect “There’s going to be a big 
bang", he beamed. “What publish- 
ers need is a good kick up the 
pants." 

It is crisis time again in the book 
industry and publishers' humour is 
getting blacker. According to the 
managing director of Pan. Simon 
Master, “things are so bad that 
publishers are being honest to each 
other about how tad things are" 
Publishers have 'always liked 'to 
complain, even all the way to the 
tank. No doubt their forerunners 
predicted terminally: downward 
curves after a -heavy loss of 
illuminators to- plague or Norse-; 
men. It does seem, however, that 
they do have cause to be worried. A 
disappointing Christmas for sales 
has been followed by a worse six 
months. Carmen Callil df Chatto & 
Windus admitted tad returns, 
despite the success of Timothy 
Mo's new novel, before giving a 
long list of publishers with equally 
poor figures. % 

What must be particularly dis- 
turbing for the industry is that this 
recent slump has happened despite 
all the rationalization and reorgani- 
zation that has taken place since 
the last serious crisis during the 
recession of the Seventies. Compa- 
nies have merged, adopted “ver- 
tical'’ structures so that they 
control both the paperback and 
hardback life of a book, and even in 
some cases bought or opened 
bookshops. Publishers no longer 
regard marketing as a preoccupa- 
tion worthy only of the more

Books going down the slippery slope 



lan Chapman, chairman of ! 
Collins: bullishly optimistic — 
more so than some of his staff 

materialistic readers of their gar- 
dening lists. 

Penguin, under the dynamic 
leadership of an American worka- 
holic, Peter Mayer, seemed to have 
successfully adapted itself to the 
needs of the modern market-place 
without irredeemably compromis- 
ing .its high-minded traditions. (A 
new edition of Ulysses is worth a 
mass teller such as Lace.) Next 
week it moves into smart new 
Kensington offices with its various 
acquisitions: Viking (its hardback 
imprint). Hamish Hamilton. Mi- 
chael Joseph. Sphere. Rainbird. 
But all is not well. Despite its 
formidable tackUst, Penguin sales, 
in this country at least, have also 
dumped in the last six months. 
There are even rumours that its

Windus: admits bad returns 
despite success of Timothy Mo 

parent company* Pearson, are 
thinking of selling iu It is io be 
hoped that it is no presage that the 
new offices have been nicknamed 
“The Bastille". 

What has happened to the 
industry? When pressed, most 
publishers admit that they cannot 
fully explain the slump. This, of' 
course, does not stop them from 
Dying. Their lucky-dip of reasons, 
which vary greatly in their plausi- 
bility, include: a decline in retail 
trade as a whole: an increase in 
retail trade in goods other than 
books: the weather too bad in 
spring; the weather too good 
recently: no American tourists: 
Chernobyl; compact discs; unem- 
ployment; the encouragement of 
middlfrclas5 materialistic philistin- 


Tim Waferstone: has shown 
faith in the industry by rapid 
expansion of his chain of shops 

ism under Thatcherism: decline in 
education standards: too few 
strong lead titles early this yean too 
much emphasis on strong lead 
titles: the tack of a recent block- 
buster television series based on a 
book: far too many titles chasing 
loo little shelf space; libraries being 
more choosy: increased fussiness 
by booksellers who return a book 
as soon as they set eyes on it; the 
net book agreement which pre- 
vents competitive pricing:' the ab- 
sence of a new generation of 
brilliant writers: and. of course, the 
incompetence of other publishers. 

Such guesswork makes even the 
treacherous numeracy of market 
research appear less uninviting. 
Mintel have published this year a 
study of book retailing and another 


Peter Mayen has adapted ’ 
Penguin to modern needs without 
irredeemable compromise 

on leisure paperbacks. Their fig- 
ures. however, chart rather than 
explain decline: despite an increase 
in advertising, growth in real terms 
since 1983 has been only one per 
cent per annum: 21 per cent of their 
sample of ' 94! adults said they 
never bought books. 35 per cent 
that they’ have not bought a book in 
the last year. 

We are not a nation of biblio- 
philes. “How much do you think 
we spend .altogether on our librar- 
ies. public or private, as compared 
with what we spend on our 
horses?" complained that eminent 
Victorian John Ruskin. The same 
applies today. Nor do we have 
America's strength of intellectual 
fashion which makes certain books 
essential Yuppie furniture — read 


or unread. Garrison Keillor’s Lake 
ll'ofrcgon Days did remarkably 
well for Faber selling 14.500 copies 
in hardback. In America it sold 
well over a million. 

Everything in the industry is not. 
however, gloom and despondency. 
Sales of children's books are up. 
which bodes well for the future. 
BookseHers I haw spoken to have 
been less pessimistic than publish- 
ers. though lack of American 
tourists has bun certain shops. 
"Publishers are very un-Kipling- 
esque about keeping their heads", 
remarked Tim Waterstone. who 
has shown his faith in the industry 
by rapidly expanding his chain of 
large bookshops. Some publishers, 
though, are putting on a brave face. 
Peter Mayer is confident things will 
look up when his much stronger 
autumn list appears. Susan Fletch- 
er ofHeadline, which was launched 
only last week, believes that small 
overheads and a shamelessly com- 
mercial policy aimed mainly at 
women (who buy more books than 
men) is a recipe for success. Ian 
Chapman, chairman of Collins, 
which has more: than most applied 
business-school techniques to pub- 
lishing. is bulfishly optimistic. — 
more to than some of his staff... . 

Talk is one thing., results are 
another. If they seem to be silting a 
little smugly through the crisis at 
Faber's it is because sales, accord- 
ing to their marketing director. 
Desmond Oarke, are 23 per cent 
up on last year. Wisely they chose 
to show a strong hand in the spring 
rather than, as most publishers do. 
in the autumn. Clever promotion 
even pul two of their poetry books 
in the best-seller lists and now 
seems to be making an unlikely 
success of Vikram Seth's delightful 
Californian verse novel. The Gold- 
en Gate. Faber's have made some 
bad mistakes and have the cushion 
of the sales of their old masters, not 
to say a cut of Cats, but they have 
shown that enterprise and imagina- 
tion can still reap rewards. More 
than one rival editor even sang 
their praises to me — proof indeed 
that 1986 is an earth-shattering 
year for publishing.

through the dumkas and pol- 
kas of his beloved vlast. Some 
might regret that this pro- 
gramme avoided more search- 
ing fare: Suk has, after all, 
made classic recordings of 
Beig. Bartok and unaccompa- 
nied Bach. But the concert did 
include some classically 
poised Beethoven, outings for 
rare Dvorak and Martini 
pieces and a succession of 
lovingly delivered lollipops, 
generously extended by 20 
minutes of encores. 

The performance ot 
Beethoven’s Sonata in G, Op 
96, provided a good introduc- 
tion to Suk's general style. 
Though he favours the 19th- 
century repertoire, he is not a 
showy performer. A sense of 
restraint and objectivity is 


conveyed by his dear, light 
bowing technique with its 
characteristic separation of 
individual notes (even those 
taken on a single slur). His > 
intonation is impeccable, his 
timbre has the same silky 
quality from the G-string to 
the highest leger-Iines. If he 
has a weakness it is his 
occasionally lacklustre, un- 
even articulation of quick 
passageworfc, noticeable both ■ 
in the scherzo and finale here. 

There can be few better 
champions for Dvorak’s Sona- 
ta in F, Op 57, Suk unfolded 
its profuse lyricism in relaxed, 
unemphatic manner: the 
touch of rubato at the first 
movement's climax was all 
the more magical for being 
reserved until then. His pia- 


nist, Josef HAla, should per- 
haps have accentuated the 
finale's dance rhythms more 
jubilantly, - but elsewhere he 
was a sympathetic partner. 

Martino's Sonata No 2 elic- 
ited a remarkable change of 
mood from both men. Here 
they mixed spiky vivadty 
with Slavic ardour in response 
to this pithy yet passionate 
score. 

The miniatures that fol- 
lowed included the soulful 
Dumka written by the young 
Janacek and several potently 
evocative melodies by Suk the 
elder. Suk the younger lav- 
ished family pride, and the 
artistry of a master, on every 
note.

Opera 




earn wit there is a great deal of 
subtlety in Chabrier's music 
which explains the admiration 
successors like Ravel, felt for 
iL The instrumentation, for 
one thing, is not MOT a 
matter of expedient oom-pah- 
pahs and bland ostmatos, but 
something calculated to the 
finest degree, while the com- 
poser also offers us a varied 
palette of tonal and harmonic 
colouring. Theatrically, too. 

there is teal finesse in the way 
Chabrier. balanca . comedy 
and sentiment, both tinged 
with a gentle malice; the one 
never stifles the other. 

But Chabrier clinches his 
triumph with his set pieces. 

Among the best is the Tickling 

gone in Act I. where Rachel 
Hal la well, plaving Aloes, the 
wflfe ofthe diplomat Hensson. 


makes a highly amusing 
would-be sex kitten as she and 
the princess Laoula apply the 
feather' duster to .the hero 
Lazuli’s nether regions in 
order supposedly to. arouse 
him — from slumber, that is. 

Then there is the infamous 
scene with the Torture Chair, 
where Chabrier manages to 
uncover a relish for the sado- 
masochistic in all of us. and 
later the delicious paean to 
green chartreuse (here for the 
purposes of English rhyme 
miraculously transformed 
into benedictine) offered by 
King Ouf and his astrologer 
Siroco as they console them- 
selves over what they believe 
to be their impending deaths. 

Of all the singers, Roisin 
McGibbon as lazuli (a 
breeches role) showed the 


greatest promise with her rich, 
powerful tone and confident 
technique. Elizabeth Rodger's 
Laoula was aptly girlish in 
both sound and gesture, while 
Robert Wilson as the ranting 
Ouf thoroughly enjoyed him- 
self as the villain, ad-libbing 
insults as he went along. 
Strong support came from 
Joseph Cornwell's bumbling 
Ambassador Herisson. from 
Simon Tun kin, dressed as the 
Mad Hatter, as Siroco and 
from Robert Poulton as Tapi- 
oca, Herisson's Harpo Marx- 
like secretary. 

Alexander Fans conducted 
the generally secure orchestra 
and a disciplined, if also fleet 
of Tool chorus. There are 
performances, with alternat- 
ing casts, until tomorrow.

London debuts 

Balanced purpose 


Cynthia Phelps, the American 
winner of the Lionel Tertis 
International Viola Competi- 
tion in the Isle of Man two 
years ago, shared her pro- 
gramme with a no less talent- 
ed pianist in Kirsten Taylor, 
both graduates from the Uni- 
versity of Michigan. They 
combined to balanced pur- 
pose in the romantically rhap- 
sodic Concertpiece by Enesco. 
with its almost Elgariaa turn 
of phrase, and in the strong 
lyrical line but sometimes 
heavy weather of Hindemith's 
equally romantic early Sonata. 

Bach’s G minor Sonata. 
BWVI029. transcribes much 
less well to a modern key- 
board. which frequently sub- 
merged the string writing 
(originally for viola da gam- 
ba). bui the warmth of lone as 
well as flexibility of phrase in 
Beethoven's variations on a 
iheme from The Magic Flute 
(the “Bei Mannem” duet) 
comprised an affecting perfor- 
mance. Beneath the unassum- 
ing platform manner of both 
artists was a skill and sensitiv- 
ity ihal should ensure them 
continuing success. 

Plumbing the lowest string 
register with a sweet-voiced 
Guadagnini double bass of 
] 767 that sounded almost like 
a bassoon. Jeff Bradetich 
from ihe USA’s Northwestern 
University was a fluent and 
masterly advocate for its rep- 
ertory in association with his 
pianist wife. Judi Sockey 
Bradeiich. The sonorous keen- 
ing of Bloch's Meditation 
hehraique at this extremity of 
timbre contrasted vividly with 
the vaudevillian humour of 
genre studies in Croquis. a 
suite by Serge Lancen. 


The players also introduced 
here the three-movement 
Suite composed for them by 
Leo B. Eylar III. in which 
lyrical movements like the 
opening “Lament” alternated 
with more virtuoso writing to' 
encompass the widest range of 
the string bass as well as 
requiring a skilful control of 
technique. Any remaining 
gaps in that were more than 
covered in Bottesini’s Varia- 
tions on “Carnival of Venice", 
which perhaps should cany a 
Government health warning 
against possible injurious 
repetition. 

Noel Goodwin 

The harpsichordist David 
Pousford, who is well known 
as an organist and choral 
conductor, was perhaps un- 
wise to include a new work for 
the medium, Andrew Wilson- 
Dickson's Oriel . in his varied 
recital. The instrument is 
notoriously difficult to write 
for in contemporary idioms 
and, heartfelt though Wilson- 
Dickson's. long cycle, of por- 
traits depicting his children — 
he has a laflje family — was. it 
seemed to have little formal 
cohesion and the ideas them- 
selves were not very imagina- 
tive or inspired. 

In contrast, in a work like 
Bach'3 Sixth Partita in £ 
minor. Ponsford was on more 
solid ground. Although he 
could not show quite the same 
interpretative class as. say, 
Trevor Pinnock. his was nev- 
ertheless a thoroughly musi- 
cal. carefully considered and 
commendably - accurate 
performance.

Dance 


Travelling Light 
ICA 

After her years as a leading 
performer in the internation- 
ally famous Wuppertal Dance 
Theatre, it would be surprising 
and even disappointing if 
Meryl Tankard's own produc- 
tions bore no resemblance to 
those of her director there. 
Prna Bausch. Travelling Light 
is her second show and it 
reveals the Bausch influence 
both in genera! concept and in 
many details. 

But Tankard, who once 
memorably defined her native 
land as being famous for 
■‘Kangaroos! Boomerangs!! 
and Me!!!”, speaks Bausch's 
theatrical language with a 
strong Australian accent. Her 
cast consists of four husky 
chaps and herself, and her 
subject is a characteristically 
Antipodean one. the trials of 
travelling: trials exacerbated, 
they imply, if you are 
Austraban. 

The treatment is an episodic ■ 
mixture of talking, move- 
menu song and dance. It 
would be difficult io belter her;, 
own description of it as dance 
theatre cabaret. In that last 
word lies her main difference 
from Bausch; Tankard's piece 
is lighter, smaller-scaled, less 
far ranging and intense.. 

Passport and customs con- 
trol. souvenirs and suitable 
clothing, insects, wild beasts 
and comfortable journeys, 
cramped quarters, ihe prob- 
lems of language, the lure of 
sun. sea and sex. the horror of 
holiday snapshots, all come 
under her stem but comic 
gaze. She plays one of nature's 
resilient though terrified los- 
ers: the girl who has to sit on 


her case before it will lock, the 
one whose earnest lecture in 
Esperanto on the benefits of 
that artifical longue is inter- 
rupted by hoarse demands for 
a strip-tease. 

The supporting team is 
relaxed, charming and infi- 
nitely adroit. They join enthu- 
siastically in all her 
misadventures and some of 
their own. their ardour not 
least marked when the star 
sends herself up in a final 
apotheosis as a conventional 
cabaret star. A very cool 
entertainment fe^ a hot July 
night.

conference before Sir 
Geoffrey's arrival. 

He said he had agreed to see , 
Sir Geoffrey on the ground j 
that he was an emmissary of 
the EEC. and not of Britain's 
Conservative Government. 

“The EEC needs to be told 
what we have told the British 
Government, and this is why I 
am seeing him," the President 
said. 

After their talks at State 
House. Sir Geoffrey and Presi- 
dent Kaunda faced the press 
over a long wooden table. 

President Kaunda spent 
much of the time with his 
head in his hands. He ap- 
peared close to tears as he 
spoke of the impending 
“holocaust” of racial confla- 
gration spreading from South 
Africa. 

“We appeal to you that you 
do not lead us to conclude that 
when it is a white man 
suffering, you act, but when it 
is a black man suffering, you 
hesitate,” President Kaunda 
said. 

He appealed to West Euro- 
pean nations to stop hesitating 
and “fight the Nazis now on 
the continent of Africa.” 

Sir Geoffrey repeated the 
view that it was an “illusion” 
that South Africa would 
quickly be toppled by compre- 
hensive economic sanctions. 

West Europeans— and Brit- 
ain in particular — differed 
with African nations only over 
the methods to bring about an 
end to apartheid. Sir Geoffrey 
said. 

He added that South Africa 
should be given credit for its 
steps to dismantle apartheid, 
although these were too slow. 

Later, at Harare airport. Sir 
Geoffrey was met correctly by 
Dr Witness Mangwende, the 
Foreign Minister of 
Zimbabwe. 

As Sir Geoffrey drove away, 
his car flashed past a group of 
five protesters asking him to 
“Help us to free" young South 
Africans arrested on Monday 
in South Africa after attending 
a World Council of Churches 
youth congress here.

A small island off the west

Hungary is the birthplace 
of the Rubik cube, the col- 
oured puzzle that demands 
the patience of Job. The 
statistical chances of solving 
it. of aligning every facet and 
every colour, are about equal 
to the chances ever of obtain- 
ing a satisfactory telephone 
connection. 

In pursuit of The Times 
foreign desk last week I found 
myself talking to BaJogh 
Swimwear (a boutique, in 
downtown Budapest), an 
irate resident of Croydon and 
a man with a light Austrian 
accent, absolutely charming. 

It seems odd that. Buda- 
pest, a capital that is largely 
constructed on conversation, 
should be so backward in die 
development of its' phone 
system. Quite apart from 
anything else, the incessant 
broken lines and surreal in- 
terruptions is a handicap to 
trade. Austria is Hungary’s 
biggest Western trading part- 
ner, a natural export market 
so dose lo the . border — a 
short trip up the Danube — 
but orders transmitted -to or 
received from Vienna be- 
come a shouted gabble. 

Two businessmen were re- 
cently trying to work out the 
details of a minor piece of 
barter trade and the ex- 
change. as reported by one of 
them went as follows; “Stock- 
ings, 3,000 pairs. . . Whaidid 
you say? Drainage pumps? 

. . . No, stockings— switching 
from German to English — 
stockings . . . Stock? You're 
selling your stock? . . . No, 
stockings.” One gets the 
message. 

For some years now Buda- 
pest has been trying to over- 
haul its phone system, if 
system is the word. First it : 
contacted an American con- 
tractor who was willing to sell 
a modem, sophisticated auto- 
matic exchange. 

But the plan' foundered in 
the bog or East-West com-

change was on the Cocom 
list, the catalogue of high 
technology drawn up by Nato 
and some other Western . 
countries to restrict the ex-

Gilts rally 
after fall 

The gilts market staged a 
spirited rally yesterday after- 
noon to end little changed on 
the day following falls of up to 
a full pound in the morning. 

Dealers said gilts continued 1 
their bearish irend in early 
business despite Tuesday's | 
. sharp falls. However, prices j 
' recovered and by the end of , 
trading most bonds were only 
1/16 to 1/8 point lower. 

Equities also recovered in 
quiet trading after Tuesday's 
record losses which saw more 
than £5 billion wiped off share 
values. The FT-SE 100 share 
index, which lost 32 points on 
Tuesday, rose steadily to end 
15.6 points higher at 1614.6.

CBI steps up 
drive to 
curb pay rises 

By Edward Townsend Industrial Correspondent 


The Confederation of Brit- 
ish Industry yesterday threw 
down a challenge to employ- 
ers, workers, trade unions and 
the Government to join forces 
in a campaign for lower pay 
settlements in the coming 12 
months. 

Sir Terence Beckett, the 
director general, told the 
monthly meeting of the Na- 
tional Economic Develop- 
ment Council that with 
earnings in manufacturing ris- 
ing at 8 per cent a year, there 
was "precious little national 
awareness of the need to make 
a further step change down- 
wards in settlements right 
now.” 

And in an address to the 
tripartite council that marks a 
significant intensification of 
I the CBI's drive for lower wage 
deals. Sir Terence gave warn- 
ing that if rises (fid not come 
down considerably, more jobs 
would be lost 
Mr Nigel Lawson, the 
Chancellor and NEDC chair- 
man. is to present his green 
paper on profit-related pay 
schemes within the next few 
days. And in his carefully 
timed comments. Sir Terence 
made clear that, while the CBI 

EARNINGS IN 
MANUFACTURING 

(annual % change, 
latest avaHabie) 


wanted to encourage the basic 
concept, profitability in man- 
ufacturing and service indus- 
tries was well below that of 
competitors. 

Mr Lawson wants up to 20 
per cent of a worker's pay tied 
to his company’s profitability. 

Sir Terence said the milking 
of profits 10 increase pay was 
the conventional escape route 
on relating pay to perfor- 
mance but a high-perfor- 
mance. high-reward economy 
depended upon the attractive- 
ness of investing in Britain. 

The escape route on unem- 
ployment was to claim it could 
be solved by more demand. 
But there was plenty of de- 
mand in the country and 
abroad. Britain's lack of cost 
competitiveness was behind 
increasing imports and 
industry's declining share of 
world markets. 

Government, unions and 
employers should share the 
objectives of a high-perfor- 
mance, high-reward economy 
and lower unemployment. 

There was now a "unique 
window of opportunity”on 
pay. Inflation was at its lowest 
since the 1960s and, after 
taking account of tax changes.

government watchdog for the 
telecommunications industry, 
said yesterday that he would 
not be seeking a licence modi- 
fication to achieve fine tuning 
of British Telecom's pricing 
structure. . 

Speaking at the City Uni- 
versity Business School Pro- 
fessor Carsberg said a change 
would be desirable only if 
price levels were exorbitant 
and excess profits had arisen 
because of unexpected 
changes in the environment, 
rather than BTs good perfor- 
mance. “I have not yet seen 
any convincing evidence that 
these conditions are met," he 
said. 

He also said there was no 
basis for believing that prices 1 
10 domestic consumers bad 
reached a level above that 
justified by cost Returning to 
a theme in his annual report. 
Professor Carsberg said he saw 
no need for an early change to 
a price control formula mak- 
ing explicit allowances for 
volume. 

On the subject of interna- 
tional competition, he said he 
would have to ensure that 
monopoly operators in other 
countries were not able to take 
advantage of the competition 
between BT and Mercury to 
the detriment of British users. 
He added that he expected BT 
to compete fairly with Mercu- 
ry, so domestic consumers 
would not be disadvantaged.

level of 12 months ago was 
less than 1 per 'cent. 

Presenting a paper to the 
council on employment costs 
and competitiveness, showing 
that Britain was still well out 
of step with major interna-

perception of the prospect of a 
high real reward, high-perfor- 
mance economy, but in any

the performance precedes the 
pay” 

Following consultations 
with members, the CBI was 
proposing a campaign on pay 
at four levels - national with 
employers and trade associa- 
tions, regional, and in individ- 
ual companies. 

It would not set a pay norm 
because more variety and 
diversity was needed in settle- 
ments to encourage people to 
acquire skills, increase mobil- 
ity and make a more effective 
contribution to their 
company's and iheir own 
prosperity. „ 

The CBI paper, reporting 
the preliminary findings of 
two new surveys of companies 
on earnings and general em- 
ployment costs, concluded 
that company profits had 
improved from "appalling 
levels” and many manage- 
ments wished this to be re- 
flected in workers' pay. But 
flexibility must be preserved, 
against a downturn, so the cost 
must not be built permanently 
into pay structures. 

Crucially, it said, low infla- 
tion gave the opportunity to 
abandon the tradition of auto- 
matic annual pay awards.

Sir Kenneth: He pots running costs at £6 million a year. 


The price of self regulation 
is not going to come cheap, 
according to figures unveiled 
yesterday by the Securities 
and Investments Board, the 
investment watchdog under 
the Financial Services Bill 

To get the SIB operational 
will cost an estimated £7 
million, while its annual run- 
ning costs are likely to be at 
least £6 million. Sir Kenneth 
Berrill. SIB chairman said, in 
his statement accompanying 
the annual report and .SIB 
accounts published yesterday. 

These figures were immedi- 
ately challenged by leading 
City figures who accused the 
Government of deliberately 
understating the costs of self- 
regulation and creating a sys- 
tem which was too restrictive 
for investment businesses. 

At the moment, the SIB is 
already £1.437 million in the 
red, representing a loss on its 
first nine months' operations 
to March 3! 1986. 

The start-up and running 
costs ofthe SIB will ultimately 
be paid for by all authorized 
investment businesses 
through the network of the 
Self-Regulating Organizations 
(SRO) created by the Bill. 

In addition, investment 
businesses will bear their 
share of the costs of the SRO

This compares with Stan-

worth 810p. The alternative 
offer, which includes Lloyds

at 823p. 


Lloyds, however, pots tbe

effort and cost in implement- 
ing new systems and introduc- 
ing changed working 
practices. 

Mr David Hopkinson, chief 
executive of the MAG Group, 
yesterday attacked the figures, 
saying they had been deliber-

“When the total bill is

He also said that the costs of

Shopping 
controls 
called for 

By Judith Huntley 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent 

Developers and retailers are 
urging the Government to 
produce clear planning guide- 
lines to control the boom in 
out-of-town shopping. 

Latest estimates put the 
number of out-of-town 
schemes in the pipeline at 46,. 
totalling 31 million sq ft, 
compared with existing town- 
centre retail space of 75 mil- 
lion sq ft New proposals of 
over 1 million sq ft appear 
almost weekly, showing the 
fundamental shift in retailing, 

Mr Jim Howie, the property 
controller of House of Fraser, 
said at a London conference 
yesterday: “We must avoid 
the US example, where there 
is overshopping, low turn- 
over, low profits and the 
decline of the high street” 

It was a view echoed by Mr 
Roger Groom, the property 
director of the British Shoe 
Corporation, who denounced 
government polity by saying: 
“It is too simplistic to say that 
commercial market forces are 
not a land-use consideration.”

The growth in Jobs between 
now mm the end of the decade 
will be concentrated in mana- 
gerial, technical and 
healthcare Occupations, ac- 
cording to forecasts from War- 
wick University's Institute for 
Employment Research. 

Skill shortages will become 
more serious, the institute 
says, exacerbated by the fact 
ChaL daring the 1970s and 
early 1980s, tbe salary returns 
for acquiring skills and quali- 
fications declined. 

A widening of the 
Noith/South jobs divide is 
also predicted, with rising 
unemployment in Scotland, 
the North West, Wales, the 
iSforth, Yorkshire and Hum- 
berside. and the Midlands. 

The jobless total in the 
South-east, South-west and 
East Anglia is expected to 
stabilize or fall slightly. 

Tbe big increases in em- 

& 


ployment by 1990 will be 
among managers, supervisors 
and foremen, with a projected 
increase of 165,000, split 
equally between men and 
women. 

In education, health and 
other professions, a 279,000 
rise in jobs is expected, the 
majority, 261,000, for women. 

Engineers, scientists and 
technicians w31 be hi demand, 
with a 105,000 projected em- 
ployment increase, 72,000 for 
men and 33,000 for women. It 
is in this category that skill 
shortages are most likely, the 
institute predicts. 

The supply of skilled engi- 
neering workers has been hit 
by a rundown in apprentice- 
ship, and often, where such 
workers are unemployed, they 
are in the “wrong” part of the 
country. 

The largest decline in em- 
ployment, nearly 300,000, is 


for “operatives” — jobs which 
require some skill and train- 
ing, but not of the formal, 
apprenticeship-type. These in- 
clude most workers in textiles, 
footwear, printing and pub- 
lishing; distribution, transport 
and agriculture. 

The net effect of tbe project- 
ed changes is a 500,000 in- 
crease in managerial and 
technical jobs, and a reduction 
of more than 400,000 in other 
less skilled occupations. Em- 
ployment, boosted by a rise to 

300.000 in tbe number of self- 
employed, increases by 

150.000 by 1990. 

Bnt this is not enough to 
prevent a rise in adult unem- 
ployment of about 100,000 by 
the end of the decade, because 
of a continued increase in the 
size of the labour force. 

There is a need, tbe report 
says, for relative pay levels to 
be examined thoroughly.

Black Horse seeks West End firm 


By Judith Huntley 


Black Horse Agencies, the 
estate agency arm or Lloyds 
Bank, is aiming to buy a 
commercial estate agent in 
London's West End. 

Mr Roy Mercer, general 
manager of Black Horse, said: 
**We are as much a commer- 
cial agency firm as a residen- 
tial and professional firm. We 
have subsidiary companies 
with commercial practices 
and numerically we are one of 
the biggest. 

“But as yet we have no 
central London representa-

that in due course. We want a 
young firm with good market

out-of-town retailing does not 
threaten the strength of high 
street shopping and the cost of 
borrowing is cheaper, at 7 per 
ceni for 10-year, fixed-interest 
money. 

The company plans to 
transform the stores into 
smaller retailing units, ac- 
counting for about 80 per cent 


of the space, with offices on 
the upper floors. Both build-

In the case of Essen, 
Hammerson's building ad-

improved parking. 

Hammerson could have let

already, but has still to decide 
on the size of the various units.

A BANK WHICH SPANS 


The Pacific basin. 

Today, the arena for over half the world’s 
trade. 

And today as for many years, home ground for 
Standard Chartered Bank. 


Standard Chartered has built a presence 
throughout the Far East which remains un- 
rivalled today. 

While Union Bank, now a leading business 
bank in California, represents a successful US 
acquisition by a British bank. 

The result is a geographical spread-of over 
250 branches in the Pacific basin -which is now 
the envy of many banks scrambling for footholds 
in the region. 

It is a powerful example of the way that 
Standard Chartered’s management strengths 
have built an international network, of more than 
two thousand offices in over sixty countries. A net- 
work which is highly-integrated, built on common 
procedures and information systems: but made 
up chiefly of offices which play a central and 
established role in their domestic markets. 

And thus, a network ready to serve the needs 
of international business, of local business and of 
private individuals.

In assessing the dangers of Correspond 


this occurring it would dear- 
ly be useful tohave a fairly- 
good- idea why buffer stocks: 
of money, or liquidity, havfer- 
been built up in the first" 
place. 

One explanation, drawing 
on rational" expectations 
ideas, has it that a build-up ir£ 
holdings; of money occur* 
when there are unanticipated 
increases in the . money' 
supply. . 

Another view is that buffer 
stocks of money arise afte£ 
big shocks to the system, anfl 
are eliminated only gradual^ 
ly. In other words, everyone 
is holding more liquidity than; 
they actually want to;- but: 
there may be good reasons for 
not gening rid of that liquid*-

Alternatively, these unde^. 
sired or disequilibrium hold;, 
-ings of money may not be? 
sitting .idly ami ineffectively; 
around,. .-but rather, having- 
some effect both on real and. 
nominal economic variable*^ 

According to Tim 
Congdon and Peter Warbur ; 
ton at L Messel &Co, the rise 
in money holdings is largely 
explained by the strength, of; 
financial markets and .the- 
behaviour of financial; 
institutions. 

As asset prices have risen; 
strongly — there have .been 
big increases in the prices of; 
shares, government stocks - 
and houses — so financial; 
institutions have -had . to in- 
crease their holdings of cask 
to maintain a constant ralier 
of cash to assets. 

Thus, one of the pfpeways 
into which the flow of broad 
money has been diverted is 
into the bank accounts of. 
financial institutions. (It may' 
be that the strength of finan-r, 
rial markets has called forth? 
stronger growth in broad; 
money, but that is another 
story). 

The trigger for a release of ; 
liquidity, a damburst, in this.' 
case is a fell in financial, 
markets. A drop in stock* 
market, prices reduces) 
institutions’ need for cash so' 
that cash can then be released 
from their bank accounts. 

The Bank of England's 
view, amid so much uncerv . 

Bank not keen 
to take risks : 


tainty about what precisely 
led to the build-up of liquid^ 
ity and what, now, couJdj 
trigger its release, is essential^ 
iy to do nothing 
The view appears to beihaf 
the system is holding, for- 
reasons that are not entirely, 
clear, but that anything whiefr? 
disturbed it could be highly 
damaging. For this reason,, 
the Bank is keen to-be seen as; 
extremely cautious in its- 
interest rate policy. _ 
It is not certain that a fell i£> 
interest rates would provide 
the trigger — . it might, only 
shift the balance between’ 
interest-bearing and non-in- 
terest bearing money — but; 
the Bank is not in the mood 
to take risks. __ •— . 

A monetarist would sa$; 
that the authorities deserve^ 
what they get for allowing too 
much broad money growth in 
the first place. For that, it is 
Tajr to put the blame, not on' 
the Blank, but on the other 
side of town, at the Treasury: 
One suspects, however, that 
thoughts of buffer stock monh 
ey do not keep Nigel Lawson

oned to have found homes for 
around £10 million worth of 
equities. Most, of the business 
was completed before lunch. 

This appears to have con- 
firmed to market bulls that 
Tuesday's 30-point fell in the 
index was overdone. As a 
result, share prices rallied 
strongly yesterday, helped by 
die appearance of a few cheap 
buyers. Jobbers responded 
quickly by marking prices 
Higher among the leaders, 
which left the FT index of 30 
shares dosing at its best level 
of the. day, 13.8 points up at 
1,331.5. The broader-based 
FT-SE 100 also responded 
positively, finishing 1 5.6 
points higher at 1,614.6. 

Gilts opened with losses of 
more than £1, still reeling 
from Tuesday's disappointing 
money supply figures which 
have virtually scuppered 
hopes of an early cut in bank 
base rates. But prices rallied 
steadily as the day wore on, 
with investors again con- 
vinced that this week's shake- 
out had been overdone. By the 
close the defidt had been 
reduced to £'k at the longer 
end of the market. 

Guinness enjoyed support 
after houis, with a rise of 7p to 
333p ahead of a seminar 
arranged by Cazenove for the

man of Guinness, is expected

Rank Organisation has 
again been selling shares in 
Granada and has now taken 
its stake below the important S 
per cent level. Rowe & Pitman 
placed the latest tranche of 5. 1 
million shares with various 
institutions at just over 270p. 

The offering was placed 
easily and more than four 
times oversubscribed. On Fri- 
day, Rank unloaded another 
2.1 million Granada shares in 
the market Granada rose 4p 
to 282p. 

As expected, Mr David

The market is betting that

price hardened 3p to 463p. but i 
is still showing a discount of 
37p on the striking price of | 
SOOp. Willis Faber, the I 
Lloyds' insurance broker, says | 
it now owns 31.3 million : 
Grenfell shares, or 20.78 per 
cent of the issued capital. 
Faber lost 5p to 409p. 

The rest of the merchant 
banking sector also showed 
some improvement. Brown 
Shipley advanced Sp to 5l0p, 
Leopold Joseph lOp to 500p 

•Shares of IMI were a 
weak market falling 5p to 
184p following a 
downgrading by Quflter 
Goodtson, the broker. 

Quilter has reduced its esti- 
mate by £3m to £72m for 
the year to March, compared 
with £57«8 id last time. Ap- 
parently, the expected growth 
on the drink dispenser side 
has foiled to materialise and 
currency fluctuations may 
have taken their tolL 

and Mercury International 2p 
to 735p. 

Hambros gained Sp lo 
243p on hopes of a bid after 
learning that Guardian Royal 
Exchange — 3p higher at 902p 
— had disclosed that it now 
held more than 5 per cent of 
the shares. GRE says its 
holding has now reached 8.04 
million shares (3.02 per cent). 

A few cheap buyers came to 
the aid of oil shares as the 
price of crude looked a little 
steadier on the spot market 
after dipping below $10 a 
barrel earlier in the week. BP 
rose 4p to 560p, Shell Sp to 
773p. Britoil 5p to 146p, 
Bunnah 3p to 41 Ip. Imperial 
Continental Gas 3p to 403p, 
London & Scottish Marine On 
Sp to 93p and Premier Con- 
solidated Oilfields 2.5p to 

28p. 

Tesco held steady at 343p 
despite the news that Sir Leslie 
Porter, a director and former 
chairman of the group, had 
disposed of 1.4 million shares 
from his non-beneficiai hold- 
ings. The shares were sold at 
356.5p and value the stake at 
£5 million. 

Among the brewers, Scot- 
tish & Newcastle stood out 
with a Sp rise to 197p with the 
market convinced that- it is 
about to buy the rival Courage 
brewery from Hanson Trust 

Hanson acquired Courage 
when it succesfully bid for 
Imperial Group earlier this 
year. Hanson rose Ip to 180p 
after confirmation that this 
week's placing of 75 million of 
its shares in Europe has been 
completed. 


[COMMENT Kenneth Fleet J 


The new mood may 
just save Standard 


This week’s failure of Evered to 
capture McKechnie is the third major 
takeover failure in quick succession. 
Woolworth Holdings' escape from 
Dixons Group and APV's from Siebe 
were the other two. 

Would-be predators, and their 
highly-paid advisers, must now be 
asking themselves whether the take- 
over game has turned against them, 
after several golden years. Goldman 
Sachs, the American defence special- 
ist. has analysed all hostile bids 
launched in the United Kingdom 
since 1983 worth more than £75 
million, and discovered that without a 
reference to the Monopolies and 
Mergers Commission the chances of 
the company under, siege remaining 
independent were minimal. 

Three successful and traditionally 
fought defences do not amount to a 
trend, but there is undoubtedly a shift 
in institutional thinking, accompa- 
nied by, if not waited by, a change in 
the prevailing political wind. Bidders 
are braving to come up with stronger 
arguments for replacing existing 
managements, especially when the 
latter have performed and continue to 
perform well. Price in itself is no 
longer a sufficient reason peremp- 
torily to take away a company's 
independence. It is overdue but there 
is a greater willingness to give the 
managements of all but the sleepy or 
demonstrably failed companies the 
benefit of die doubL 

This change of attitude - among 
serious fund managers (the teeny 
hoppers obsessed with ratings in the 
Wood, Mackenzie performance charts 
are hard to take seriously) may be 
Standard Chartered’s best hope of 
staying out of Lloyds Bank's clutches. 
Lloyds* bid, launched in May after an 
approach early in April, was cleverly 
timed: Standard seemed to be drifting 
and gathering clouds in South Africa 
were casting a long shadow over its 
substantial investment in Standard 
Bank of South Africa. Although 
Lloyds’ alternative offers are strange 
hybrid affairs, they do offer, a useful 
premium over Standard's price in the 
market (802p last night, two dealing 
days before the bid closes on 
Saturday). 

Hardly a knockout 

But margins of 29p (the basic offer) 
and 48p (the alternative terms) are 
hardly a knockout, especially if some 
credence is given to Standard’s 
calculation, repeated in a letter to 
shareholders yesterday from Lord 
Barber, Standard's.chairman, that the 
minimum value of Standard shares is 
well over £9. The contrary argument is 
that, should the bid foil, the Standard 
price, which had been buoyed up by 
takeover rumours long before Lloyds 
showed its hand, would fall sharply. 
The chief reason of course why Lloyds 


has not been willing to pay more is 
South Africa. Shareholders in both 
banks have to reflect on which 
management is more likely to deal 
with the South Africa problem. 

This issue however, will not decide 
Standard’s fete. There is certainly a 
case — not simply Lloyds’ own 
arguments, which from its point of 
view make very good sense — for 
creating a third very laige British- 
owned international bank. The great 
pity is that the case was not explored 
by the two banks with a view to an 
agreed merger. 

For this the Bank of England must 
take much of the blame. Not long ago 
a hostile bid by one bank for another 
would have been ruled out of court, if 
only because the spectacle of two 
banks squabbling would have been 
condemned as damaging both to the 
international status of British banking 
in particular and the City of London 
in generaL 

Critical time 

The Bank of England may have 
thought, naively, that in giving the 
nod to Lloyds, an agreed merger and 
not a contested bid, would be the 
outcome. Unfortunately, it is now 
clear to the City and the world that the 
Bank of England has lost control over 
the structure of the banking system, 
and at a most critical time — the eve of 
deregulation in the City. The Bank 
will have to be at its devious best if in 
future it wants to drop the “market 
forces must decide” doctrine it has 
learned at Mrs Thatcher's knee. 

Standard, by definition, is a federa- 
tion of regional banks with a whole- 
sale operation to top it up. There can 
be no pretence of operating as an 
integrated international bank. Profits 
have been disappointing 

In none of its areas of operation is 
Standard regarded as the most dy- 
namic bank of the region. 

The argument for independence per 
se is a weak one. The Lloyds bid has 
straightforward logic. Standard fills in 
the gaps in the globe where Lloyds is 
weak and is therefore the essential 
building block for a global bank. This 
mates Standard worth more to Lloyds 
than on its own. Furthermore, such 
integration would allow the combined 
group to exploit Standard's genuine 
local soundness with dynamism di- 
rected from the top. 

And yet I have a strong feeling that 
Standard does deserve a chance both 
to fulfil its potential under Michael 
Me William and his team, who both 
understand the nature of their task ' 
and would have the greatest possible 
incentive to succeed. That view may 
be shared by enough significant 
shareholders for Standard to remain 
independent; but it will be a dose run 
thing. |

The market value of its 
shareholdings in Euromoney 
Publications. Reuters and 


should appeal to shareholders 
— the company plans to 
become bigger so that its 
shares will continue to be 
freely traded. The chairman. 
Mr Colin Perry, would like 
the company to double or 
treble in size in the next two 
to three years. 

That will require the com-

Race against time 
for Bank of China 


From Stephen Leather, Hong Kong 


Builders are working 
around the clock so that a 
superstitious Chinese bank 
can finish the first stage of 
Hong Kong's tallest building 
on what it hopes may be a 
lucky day. 


It signed a new deal with the 
contractors. Kumagai Gumi, 
because the bank believes that 


completing part of what will 
be the world's eighth tallest 
building, and the largest out- 
side the United States, on 
August 8 , 1988, will multiply 
its good fortune. 

Kumagi's project manager. 
Mr David Stiff said: “It is 
quite a challenge, but it is one 
of the provisos of the contract 
thal the work should be 
completed in- lime for the 
bank to benefit from the 
agreed date." 

The bank is being built on a 
site which was sold for a 
“friendship price" of HKSl 
billion by the Hong Kong 


The Bank of China wants 
the first IS floors ofits new 70- 
storey Hong Kong headquar- 
ter! to be completed on the 
eighth day of the eighth month 
in 1988. 


The building contractor was 
on schedule to finish the first 
stage of the HKSl. I billion 
(£91.6 million) project three 
months later, but the number 
eight is finked with prosperity 
in Chinese superstition and 
the bank decided it was too 
good an opportunity to miss- 


government at the height of 
the property boom in 1982.

buy an electronic component 
manufacturer for £2 million 
or more to join the existing 
components business which 
accounts for a third of profits. 

Yesterday's results for the 
year to March 29 demon- 
strate the strength of the 
existing businesses, with 
group profits up from 
£957.000 to £1-63 million. 

The company is building 
on its existing consumer busi- 
ness. Meanwhile the £1 
million investment in Acsis 
Jewellery has yet to perform. 

Assuming earnings per 
share increase by another 20 
per cent the shares at 193p 
are trading on less than 10 
limes earnings. That multiple 
takes little account of Mr 
Perry’s ambitions. 

Harrison 


doors, are contributing 1 1 per 
cent of profits. A third found- 


Indus tries 


A door is no longer simply a 
convenient way of allowing 
people to pass through walls. 
It is now a piece of high-tech 
equipment which may have 
to meet specifications ranging 
from energy conservation 
and fire protection to with- 
standing hurricanes. There 
are folding doors, electroni- 
cally operated doors and a 
whole host of other types of 
industrial dosings. 

Harrison Industries, which 
is coming to the market by 
way of an offer-for-sale, is 
primarily a manufacturer of 
industrial doors, built accord- 
ing to customers’ require- 
ments. It has about 25 per 
cent of this specialized mar- 
ket and doors account for 80 
per cent of turnover and 
profit, which in 1985-6 to- 
talled £21.8 million and £2.4 
million respectively. 

In addition to doors, Harri- 
son is involved in castings 
and power transmission 
equipment External sales of 
castings from Harrison's two 
foundries, originally needed 
to supply the castings for 


cent of profits. A third found- 
ry is being built at a cost of 
£350,000. 

The power transmission 
company was started to sup- 
ply Harrison's requirements 
for equipment used in the 
electric operation of doors. 
External sales are providing 
10 per cent of profits. 

The offer price of 150p 
capitalizes the group at £17.6 
million. A total of 3.3 million 
shares, or 28 per cent of the 
company, are being sold. Half 
of these will be new shares 
raising £2 million for the 
company. 

Harrison intends to contin- 
ue expanding, both in its 
existing markets and into 
complementary activities. Its 
foray into domestic up-and- 
over garage doors through an 
acquisition made in Febru- 
ary, 1985 has proved 
successful. 

Indeed, the whole domestic 
door industry is ripe for 
exploitation. 

In the last five years, 
turnover has grown at more 
than 20 per cent and pretax 
profit at above 70 per cent 
annually. Earnings a share for 
the year 10 March 31. 1986, 
were I I. 2 p and the shares are 
being offered on an historic 
price- earnings multiple of 
11.2 and a yield of 4.7 per 
cent 

Harrison has two main 
competitors — the quoted 
Hendetson Group and a sub- 
sidiary of Tarmac The three 
companies between them 
have over 70 per cent of the 
market 

Mr Ken Harrison, the 
chairman, disarmingly re- 
marked that as newcomers to 
the market they need to 
prove themselves. Conse- 
quently. Harrison Industries 
is being offered at a discount 
of about 20 per cent to the 
Henderson Group's historic 
multiple making the issue 
look extremely attractive.

50 “ J 979, when 
Mrs Thatchers Government took 
“Hcmptoymem has risen 
TTOrn 1 .3 million to 3.3 million, the 
number of people self-employed- 
™ 1 . nsen from 1.8 million to 2.4 
million, the total workforce has 
Jailen from 23.2 million to 212 
million', the purchasing power of 
the pound has declined by a third; 
the eounuys gnp fell between 
J979 and 1982, and only .in the 
pan two years has it surpassd the . 
•1979 peaks; the size of the 
.manufacturing sector has declined 
‘by more than 20 per cent. 

■\ A major social change during 
;lhe decade has been the shift 
■ among shopfloor workers in 1976 
’living in council houses to, in 
11985, being mostly owner-occupi- 
‘ere. Another has been the doubling 
.-of the number of workers who are 
also shareholders in British indus- 
~..lry. A majority recognize they and 
their families are better off finan- 
‘cially now than they were a decade 
tago. 

Has this brought about a signifi- 
,cant shift in shopfloor workers' 


attitudes to industry? In 1985 IBM 
(UK). Shell (UK) and The Sunday 
Times agreed to co-sponsor a 
study to update a MORI/CBI 
1976 survey on employee, atti- 
tudes and understandings.. Some 
of the results appeared in January 
in' The Sunday Times. But what 
else did we learn from the survey? 

Structurally, men account now 
for 75 per cent of full-time workers 
(90 per cent of working men work 
full-time), and women 25 per cent 
(55 per cent of working women 
work full-time). Nearly half (44 
per cent) of workers are under 34, 
47 per cent 34-54 and 9 per cent 55 
ana oven only a quarter (27 per 
cent) of workers now work in 
manufacturing industry and con- . 
strucrion, fewer than the 30 per 
cent who work in the public sector 
(including the 7 per cent who work 
in a nationalized industry). 

Two-thirds (66 per cent) work 
for private companies or are self- 
employed. Thirty per cent have 
worked for their current employ- 
ers for more than a decade, 40 per 
cent less than three years. Sixty- 
two per cent have fewer than 100 
employees at their workplace. One* 
worker in 20 works for a company 
owned abroad, and men (end 
more to work for private compa- 
nies and women for government 
or in the retail sector. 

One striking finding of the 
survey was that in 1 976 more than 
four m 10 workers (42 per cent) 
said they “could do much more 
work in their present job without 



too much effort", ranging from a 
third (32 per cent) oi workers in 
small companies to more than half 
(57 per cent) in nationalized 
industries. 

Now. a third (33 per cent) of 
shopfloor workers say they could 
work harder, including 26 percent 
in the private sector and 35 per 
cent of workers in nationalized 
industry. 

So while there has been a 
decline overall and in the nation- 
alized industries, still more than a 
third of nationalized industry 
workers, despite massive de-man- 
ning, say they are underworked. 
Even a quarter (26 per cent) of 
managers say they are under- 
utilized as do nearly four in 10 (39 
per cent) of workers aged 25-34, 
men and women alike. 

Workers overwhelmingly reject 
the idea that they are “not 
interested in the 
company/organization l work for, 
it’s just a job” Three-quarters (74 
percent) disagree, and only one in 


The case for 
reforms in 
our industry 
is put into 
figures by 
Bob Worcester 


six (18 per cent) agree. 16 per cent 
of men, more younger than older, 
and 22 per cent of women, and 
even one in 10 managers. Pan- 
time workers (29 per cent) are 
twice as likely as full-time workers 
(15 per cent) to consider their 
employment “just a job”. 

During the decade there has 
been a major emphasis on im- 
proving the quality of manage- 
ment in Britain through training, 
education, and associations such 
as the British Institute of Manage- 
ment The need to do so was 
evident in 1976 and has become 
acute since then. In the survey a 
decade ago, 86 per cent of workers 
(and 89 per cent of managers) 
agreed “there’s a big need to 
improve the quality of manage- 
ment in Britain". Last year 76 per 
cent of workers and 70 per cent of 
managers agreed, a distinct im- 
provement over an appalling score 
of a decade ago. yet three-quarters 
still believe there is a need to 
improve managerial performance. 


The table encapsulates bow 
little change there has been in the 
'way workers then and now' per- 
ceive behaviour on the shopfloor 
- and the studies measure percep- 
tion rather than any abstract truth. 
On the plus side, more (+9 per 
cent) now believe workers work as 
hard as ihey can. but still only 44 
per cent of British workers think 
this: more (+9 per cent) now say 
their mates do not “work to rule", 
but still only 37 per cent say so. 

Disappointingly, there has been 
no change at all in pride in the job, 
and only marginal shifts in time- 
keeping. absenteeism and being 
good in their jobs. 

Len Peach, as president of the 
Institute of Personnel Manage- 
ment, said priority should be 
given to action by indusify itself to 
increase an understanding of in- 
dustry. His point is supported by 
other MORI research which has 
shown that the strongest impact 
on the image of companies — thejr- 
corporate image — is from their 
own employees as goodwill am- 
bassadors. stronger than company 
advertising, products and services, 
facilities or other forms of public 
relations. 

But his point is that if employ- 
ees know little about the company 
they work for or, worse, hold it in 
low esteem, it is unlikely that they 
will use their efforts to promote 
Industry Year. And the compari- 
son of 1976 with the attitudes in 
the 1985 results tend to show that 
job satisfaction, information cred- 


BEHAVlOUR OF WORKERS 

Which of these apply to the way workers on the shopfloor in your com- 
pany behave? 

Willing to work overtime: 58% (1976) 62% (1985) (+4) 

. Good at their job: 58% 61% 1+3) 

Arrive at work on time: 59% 57% (-2) 

Work as hard as they can: 35% 44% (+9) 

Avoid unnecessary absenteeism: 45% 42% (-3) 

Not "work to rule . 28% 37% j+9) 

Proud of their job: 29% 29% (0) 

Help and encourage others to do a good job: 30% 28% (-2)

lbtlity and other altitudinal mea- 
sures of worker psychological well- 
being' have declined during the 
decade. 

Satisfaction with the organiza- 
tion as a place to work is higher, 
perhaps surprisingly, in big com- 
panies, not smaller ones; is worse 
among people employed in gov- 
ernment and the nationalized 
industries (perhaps correlated 
with too little to do?) and best (!) . 
in the retail trade; job satisfaction 
is equal across all types of employ- 
ment. 

If companies are going to be 
successful in getting their own 
employees to take the lead in 
meeting- Industry Year’s objec- 
tives they will have to do some- 
thing about these and other 
altitudinal barriers among their 
workers such as: 

• The majority (56 per cent) who 
say: “By the time management 
gets around to telling us things we 
have heard about them through 


other ways." (66 per cent in public 
sector agree) 

• The majority (53 per cent) who 
say: “Management is more inter- 
ested in giving employees its own 
point of view than they are in 
listening to what employees have 
to say. (60 per cent in public 
sector agrw) 

• The majority who agree (50 per 
cent) against 25 per cent who 
disagree that “the information 
management gives is frequently 
unfairly slanted to give employees 
only what management want them 
to know”. (56 per cent in public 
service agree) 

• The iwo-thirds who did not 
agree that “my company is leaner 
and fitter than six years ago". 

Bob Worcester is chairman oj 
MORI, the opinion poll organiza- 
tion. The MORI "Altitudes to 
Industry" survey' was conducted in 
October 1985 among a representa- 
tive sample of 1,019 employed 
adults in 170 sampling points

Over the Iasi few years there has been a 
great emphasis on starting your own 
business, but despite Mrs. Thatcher's 
endorsement there has been lUtle enthu- 
siasm for encouraging women to start on 
their own. 

However, official figures show that 4 
per cent of all economically active 
women are self-employed, compared to 9 
per cent of men. Unofficial sources 
estimate that 6 per cent of all businesses 
are female-owned, and the number is 
growing. 

Leah Hertz, herself a successful 
entrepreneusc and the author of The 
Business Amazons a study of 50 Ameri- 
can and 50 British women business 
owners, says "Starting your own busi- 
ness has been the traditional upward 
route for most minorities. Today women 
are finding that the rules are less 
restrictive in starting their own compa- 
nies. than in working for others. Denied 
access to positions of power and author- 
ity. they are looking to other sources and 
creating their own opportunities.” 

Autonomy and achievement are the 
main reasons for women starting up on 
their own. Money is rarely the motiva- 
tion. although necessity may be. Women 
lend to seek out business possibilities 
where technical and financial entry 
barriers are low. and where managerial 
experience is not immediately important 
to success or failure. 

In practice this leads women to set up 
“female-type” businesses which, says 
Ronnie Ltstsenu Director of the Business 
Development Programme at City Uni- 
versity. and the Course Director of 

Money is rarely found to be 
the prune motivating force 

Living Magazine’s Finding Your Niche 
Programmes, “are often the fastest 
growing business areas.” 

Women in general want to set up 
businesses that they care about, and have 
a real commitment to the product or the 
service. Women find it harder than men 
to start up. largely, Lessem says “Because 
of their fear of using or exploiting people 
gets in the way of using a network of 
friends or contacts the way that a man 
would.” Y’et once the business has 
started, he finds that “ women have an 
enabling, nurturing ability quite different 
from men. They get the most from their 
employees. Women are concerned about 
the development of their staff, and run 
matriarchal organisations which are 
more creative and flexible than male led 
enterprises. But paradoxically, this can 
prevent women from growing large 
companies.” 

Ronnie Lessem thinks that many 
female-run businesses are the pattern for 
the future, especially in their use of part- 
time staff. “Women have an ability to do 
lots of things at the same time, they can 
operate in two or three different areas 
without difficulty." 

Certainly most women business own- 
ers seek to structure their work to cope 
with the demands of family life. “Wom- 
en who start their own businesses tend to 



Hertfordshire 
County Council 

An Equal Opportunity Employer 





A growing number of 
women are now setting 
up their own business, 
and creating jobs that 
suit themselves better. 
Corinne Julius considers 
this struggle to achieve 
autonomy and success 

be younger or older than their male 
counterpart” says Ronnie Lessem ‘‘be- 
cause they begin before, or after they 
have children.” 74.5 percent of women, 
started in business only after they had 
had their children. Unlike women 
executives, only 39 percent of whom had 
children, 74 per cent of women business 
owners had offspring. - 
Women who start enterprises are often 
profoundly influenced by their own 
family backgrounds. Leila Keenan, a 24- 
year old graduate, had both a mother and. 
a grandmother who ran their own strops^ 
but she had never contemplated her own 
business until one day she noticed that a 
delicatessen (where she had worked 
briefly for holiday money) was going 
bust and was up for sale. 

She borrowed small sums of money 
from her family and friends and within a 
few months, without business Paining or 
experience, had created the Cheese 
Board, a specialist cheese shop. She 
found that she was not so keen on 
running it. and through boredom fell 
into the trap of expanding too quickly. 

She has since been on an MSC at the 
London Business School which, she says 
“has Iran formed me from a self-em- 
ployed person to a business woman!* 
Margaret Seymour started her own 
business at 37. when her three children, 
were still quite young, helpinga friend do 
up holiday cottages. Because of financial 
differences with her partner, she decided 
in 1980 to start her own company, 
Seymour Swimming Pool Services. To- 
day she employs twelve people, has a 
turnover of £400,000. and was a finalist 
in this year’s British Association of 


Women Entrepreneurs ‘‘Business 
Women's Enterprise Award’* 
competition. 

Her problem was finance. She has now 
established a good reputation and says 
“Creditability is your greatest asset, you 
have- to -be reliable, and honest.” Her 
advice to other women is ~to have a go — 
do not be overawed. If you can organise a 
family you can do anything.” 

Eugenie Maxwell was' m her fifties 
when she inherited J. S. Crowther LtcL a 
specialist paper bag manufacturing com- 
pany. The operation was almost defunct 
Mrs. Maxwell (a former actress, who 
could not read a balance sheet) set about 
saving the company. Five years later, the 
business has prospered and now sells not 
only bags io America, but has also 
ventured in specialist products — Prin- 
cess Eugenie Tea and Cookies. 

Raising the finance can be difficult 
but as Mrs. Maxwell says “All entrepre- 
neurs experience this problem. It is easy 
to think ifs because I am a Woman, but 
usually it’s because we have no track 

record." " •• 

Leila Keenan's advice is: “You need to 
beable lb talk to yourbank manager, arid 
if you cannot and he will not help, then 
you must change banks. Remember you 
are doing them a favour by banking with 
them, and not vice versa.” There are 
many other sources of finance, and it is 
worth seeking advice from your local 
enterprise agency, 

- “No' matter what the product or 
service is. it won’t sell itself* says 
Margaret Seymoar. “You Have to have 
assessed the market and be able to sell. It 

’74 per cent of females in 
business now have offspring 

is your enthusiasm that sells your 
product or service— but do not lose your 
integrity in the hard selL" 

Most small business owners find life 
lonely and very demanding. -but women 
entrepreneuses^find it even more so. “I 
really do not have a peer group” says 
Leila Keenan “neither my friends nor 
my family really understand what I da A 
lot of mV friends seem to think that I am 
some, kind of Arthur Daly, always on the 
fiddle.” It can be helpful to join some 
kind of network, like BA WE. (British 
Association of Women Entrepreneurs) 
where you will get support and access to 
useful sources of information. 

There is a great tenipiaiion to give up. 
Eugenie Maxwell says: “You have to 
have creativeness and then the courage 
to back your ideas up.. Yqq have to 
believe m yourself, learn- to mist your 
own judgements. Confidence is all.” 
“Don't give up” says Leila Keenan. “Be 
prepared for people to be nasty, to you. 
Sometimes you feel that everyone is 
against you. Do not be afraid of failing 
In the United States they accept Mure, 
it shows you’ve tried”

LAW/SPORT ' THE TIMES THURSDAY JULY 10 1986 

Law Report July 10 1986 Divisional Court 


Fresh inquest to be held over new facts 


In re Rapier (Deceased) 

Before Lord Justice Woolf and 
Mr Justice Simon Brown 
(Judgment given July 9] . 

The court had power to quash 
an inquest under section 6 of the 
Coroners Act 1887 and section 
19 of the Coroners (Amend- 
ment! Act 1926 where, although 
it could not be shown that there 
would probably be a different 
verdict if a new inquest were 
held, it was necessary or de- 
sirable in the interests of justice 
that new facts and evidence, 
which had come to light since 
the inquest and on the basis of 
which it was possible For a jury 
to come to a different conclu- 
sion. should be explored. 

The Queen's Bench Di- 
visional Court so held on an 
application by Francis 
d'Aubevjllc Wilson, retired 
coroner for Swansea and Gower 
for an order under the 1887 and 
1926 Acts to quash an in- 
quisition touching the death of 
Philip diaries Rapier held be- 
fore the applicant and a jury' at 
which an open verdict was 
returned. 


Mr Peregrine Simon for the 
coroner. Mr Guy Sankey as 
amicus curiae. 

LORD JUSTICE WOOLF 
said that authority to make the 
application was granted by a Oar 
of the Solicitor General, in the 
absence of the Attorney Gen- 
eral. and the application was 
then made in accordance with 
Order 53 of the Rules of the 
Supreme Court for an applica- 
tion for judicial review. 

The apswer to the question 
whether or not it was necessary 
to . have leave of the court to 
proceed with an application 
where an applicant had already 
obtained the fiat of the Attorney 
General depended on the nature 
of the application which was 
made. 

Quite apart from the statutory 
application to quash under sec- 
tion 6(1) of the 1887 Act and 
section 19 of the 1926 Act, the 
court had always had an inher- 
ent jurisdiction to exercise a 
supervisory role in relation to an 
inquest conducted by a coroner 
and a power if necessary io 
quash an inquisition. 

Thai common-law power was 
independent of the statutory 
power and was exercised on an 
application for judicial review 


Collection 

involving 

exchange 


Cooper and Another v Coles 
Before Lord Justice Stephen 
Brown and Mr Justice Otton 
[Judgment given July 9] 

The promotion of a collection 
for a charitable purpose which 
involved the exchange of goods 
for money came within the 
definition of “collection” within 
section 11(1) of the House to 
House Collections Act 1939 and 
therefore required a licence in 
force authorizing the collection. 


Accordingly, justices who had 
found that the defendants' activ- 
ities fell within the definition 
were correct in convicting them 
of an offence contrary to section 
1(2) of the 1939 Act 


The Queen's Bench Di- 
visional Court so held when it 
dismissed the defendants' ap- 
peal against their conviction by 
the Nottingham Justices on 
January 21. 1985. of providing a 
collection for charitable pur- 
poses during a period for which 
there was no licence in force 
contrary to section 1(2). 

Mr Peter Ralls for the defen- 
dants: Miss Lynn Tayton for the 
prosecutor. 

MR JUSTICE OTTON said 
that the defendants were the 
principals involved in the run- 
ning of an organization which 
was not a registered charity’ but a 
private company supplying 
goods and identity cards' to 
persons who then went from 
door to door representing them- 
selves as being from the 
organization. 

It was accepted that the 
nature of the organization was 
in a good cause and that it made 
donations to charity. 

Mr Ralls specifically drew 
attention to the words "io give” 
in section 12(1) and sought to 
distinguish them from the 
words “to sell": he relied also on 
Murphy v Duke ([1985] l QB 
905. 918) where Mr Justice 
Forbes had cast doubt on the 
judgment of Lord Parker. Lord 
Chief Justice, in Carasu Ltd v 
Smith ([1968] 2 QB 383. 388- 
389). 

His Lordship did not aefept 
that Carasu was decided 
wrongly; the circumstances of 
that case were identical to the 
present case. Mr Justice Forbes 
was dealing with ’the Trading 
Representations (Disabled Per- 
sons) Act 1958. whereas Carasu 
dealt with the 1939 Act. 

The 1939 Act had to be 
construed within its own four 
comers and it was not necessary 
to construe both Acts together 
or the former Act in the light of 
the latter. Nor did the later Act 
specifically or by implication 
seek to amend the earlier. 

Accordingly, the present case 
was within Carasu 


LORD JUSTICE STEPHEN 
BROWN, agreeing, said that the 
judgment of the Lord Chief 
Justice in Carasu plainly inter- 
preted the provisions of section 
li and his Lordship was sur- 
prised that Mr Justice Forbes 
fell it appropriate to say that the 
decision was wrong. 

In so far as it was recorded in 
the headnotc of Murphy . that 
should be dissented from: Mr 
Justice Forbes was not constru- 
ing the same Act and he was 
plainly wrong in his conclusion 
on the 1939 Act- 
Accordingly, the court en- 
dorsed Carasu.

Correction 


In Goddard v Nationwide 
Building Society ( The Times 
July 2). the last three lines of the 
paragraph numbered 5 in Lord 
Justice Noursc’s judgment 
should have read “save in 
-regard to documents at which 
the judge had already looked”. 


under Order 53. On such an 
application leave had to be 
obtained. 

Where an application was 
made under the statutory power 
it might be desirable, because 
the powers of the court were not 
identical, also to make an 
application for judicial review. 

Where that was the position it 
was not necessary for two 
separate applications to be 
made. The applications could be 
and were in practice joined but 
they then had to be made by way 
of an application for judicial 
reveiw and so although the fiat 
of the Attorney General must 
already have been obtained to 
make the application under the 
statutory powers, it was still 
necessary to obtain the leave of 
the court because of the inclu- 
sion of an application for ju- 
dicial review. 

In practice, the granting of 
leave would almost inevitably 
be a formality since if the 
Attorney General considered 
that the applicant was entitled to 
his fiat, it was most unlikely that 
a court would ever refuse leave. 

There was no need to obtain 
leave for an application to quash 
an inquisition which was solely 
made on the statutory grounds 
and not by way of an application 
for judicial review. 

In the case of an application 
under the Coroners Act 1887, 
the appropriate procedure was 
to apply under Order 5, rule 3 by 
originating summons. 

In practice it was safer to 
adopt the procedure of applying 
by way of judicial review bo- 
cause the courts would then 
have in reserve its other powers 
even though that meant that the 
formality of obtaining leave had 
to be fulfilled. 

The ground of the application 
was that since the inquest into 
the death of a prisoner was held, 
new evidence had come to light 
which meant that it was nec- 
essary or desirable in the in- 
terests of justice that the verdict 
of the inquest be quashed and 
that another inquest be held at 
which the jury was able to 
consider, the additional ev- 
idence. 

At the time of his death the 
prisoner was in solitary confine- 
ment in a punishment cell in the 
young offenders' wing of Swan- 
sea Prison. 

He was found dead in his cell 
at about 9pm, hanging by the 


neck from a sheet which was 
lied to a bar in the cell window. 

At the inquest, the jury, after 
hearing the sworn evidence and 
listening to the directions given 
by the applicant concerning the 
finding or rejecting of a verdict 
of suicide, returned an open 
verdict. 

The deceased’s inquest was 
the third inquisition which had 
taken place in respect of death at 
Swansea Prison where an open 
verdict had been returned. 

It became apparent that a 
report of an investigation made 
between the date of the 
deceased's death and the inquest 
into passible solvent sniffing by 
the deceased and another in- 
mate had not been drawn to the 
attention of the coroner. 

That evidence was submitted 
to the coroner after ihe inquest. 
It indicated that trichioroeihanc 
which was a colourless volatile 
liquid widely used as a dry- 
cleaning and correcting fluid 
and as a degreasing agent was 
available to inmates at the 
prison who worked in a particu- 
lar workshop. 

According to certain of the 
witnesses, a prisoner who was 
friendly with the deceased did 
keep some in a tobacco tin and 
he said that on the night in 
question by the use of a line he 


swung ihc tin containing the 
fluid from his cell to the cell of 
the deceased and when the tin 
was returned it had been emp- 
tied. 

That happened approxi- 
mately half an hour to just 
under three-quaners of an hour 
before the deceased was found 
dead. 

A senior scientific officer 
indicated that the solvent was 
rapidly absorbed from the lungs 
and that the toxic effects of the 
compound included depression 
of the central nervous system 
resulting, in high concentra- 
tions. in anaesthesia and death 
from respiratory depression. 
There was no question here of 
the solvent directly causing 
death. 

If that evidence had been 
available to the coroner prior to 
the inquest it would inevitably 
had been called before the jury 
at the inquest. 

Under section 3( 1) of the 1 887 
Act. there was a mandatory 
requirement to hold an inquest 
in the case of deaths in prison. 
That appeared to be a statutory 


recognition that because of-the 
nature of prison institutions, 
there was a special need for an 
independent investigation into 
deaths which occurred within 
their walls. 

Section !3t2Xh) required that 
where the death occurred in 
prison the coroner was required 
to summon a jury. 

Apart from the coroner's abil- 
ity io make a report, if there 
were to be a new inquest, the 
jury’s and the coroner's in- 
quiries would be confined to 
ascertaining whether the de- 
ceased killed himself, whether 
he died as a result of an accident 
or misadventure or whether, 
again, there should be an open 
verdict. 

An open verdict would only 
be appropriate if the jury on the 
evidence could not reach one of 
the alternative verdicts which 
were available. 

The court's attention was 
drawn to a note to section 6 of 
the 1887 Acl which appeared in 
Haisbury’s Statutes . 4th edition 
(1976) volume 11. p359: “An 
inquisition will not be quashed 
unless it is shown that there 
would probably be a different 
verdict if a new inquest were 
held”. 

In support of the hole there 
was a reference to In re Davis 
(Deceased) (f 1 968] 1 QB 72) and 
R v Cardiff City Coroner. Ex 
parte Thomas ([1970] l WLR 
1475). 

It was dear the the headnote 
in In re Davis supported the 
note in volume 1 1 of Halsburv. 
It was also clear that the 
headnote reflected the judg- 
ments of Lord Justice Sellers 
and Lord Justice Russell in that 
case. 

However the case was one 
where there had already been a 
verdict of suidde and the court 


was being asked to quash the 
verdict on the basis of evidence 


verdict on the basis of evidence 
from another doctor in addition 
to the doctors who had already 
given evidence. 

Lord Justice Sellers said at 
p82: “The only ground on which 
the court could interfere in the 
circumstances of this case would 
be if it was of opinion that ihe 
verdict of suicide would prob- 
ably be replaced by a different 
verdict if a new inquest were to 
be held”. 

In adopting that approach the 
court was acting on the sub- 
missions of distinguished coun- 


sel appearing on behalf of the 
coroner but ihe precise standard 
to be adopted was not in 
dispute. 

There was .no difficulty in- 
volved in that case in assessing 
the quality of the evidence. In 
Ex parte Thomas the court 
appeared to have taken a dif- 
ferent view from that in In re 
Davis. 

His Lordship adopted the 
approach which Lord Parker, 
Lord Chief Justice, in the 
Thomas case at pi 478 adopted 
to the Doris case. 

Thai meant that the note in 
Halsburv set out a test fora new 
inquest which was too stringent. 

Here a whole new area for 
inquiry which was never investi- 
gated at the inquest had been 
disclosed. U was not possible to 
say with any degree of con- 
fidence what would be the result 
of the new evidence being 
exam i ned before a coroner and a 
iury but it would be possible for 
the jury to bring in a verdict of 
suicide as a result of the 
additional evidence. 

The jury might take the view 
that the new evidence made the 
position even more uncertain. 
On the other hand the jury could 
take the view if they were 
satisfied that the deceased was 
under the influence of the 
solvent that that caused him to ; 
become suicidal when he would j 
not otherwise have reacted in 
that way. 

It could provide an explana- 
tion as to why he should commit 
suidde notwithstanding the fact , 
that his punishment was coming 
to an end and he was shortly to 
be released from prison. 

The case was very different 
from the Davis case. It certainly 
would not appear that justice 
had been done if there were not 
a new inquesu 

While the foci that new 
evidence of matters of public 
interest discovered was not in 
itself sufficient to justify a new 
inquest, looking at the circum- 
stances of the case as a whole, 
the verdict should be quashed 
since that was necessary and 
desirable in the interests of 
justice.

ment.

Amount due need not be specified 


Bank of Banda v Panessar 
and Others 

Before Mr Justice Walton 
[Judgment given July 7] 

There was no need for a 
debenture holder to specify the 
precise amount of the debt in a 
demand for moneys due under 
the debenture. 

A stipulation requiring pay- 
ment on demand meant pay- 
ment immediately upon 
demand being made, that is. 
allowing only such time as was 
neecssajy to implement the 
mechanics of payment which in 
these days of modem methods 
of communication and transfer 
of money was a very short lime. 

Where the express terms of an 
agreement between the parties 
provided that the costs of 
enforcing payment of moneys 
due under the agreement should 
be paid on an indemnity basis, 
the court retained a discretion in 
the matter but in the light of the 
conduct of the defendants it was 
right to uphold the express 
words of the agreement 

Mr Justice Walion so held in 
the Chancery Division in grant- 
ing the bank its claim for 
payment of £832,035 plus in- 
terest due to it • under two 
guarantees and dismissing a 
counterclaim by the defendants 
that the appointment of a 
receiver by the bank was invalid 
and therefore they were released 
from their liability under the 
guarantces. 

Mr Michael Crystal. QC and 
Mr John Higham for the bank: 
Mr Peter Cresswell. QC and Mr 
Gregory Mitchell for the re- 
ceiver. Mr John Moncaster for 
the first, third and fifth defen- 
dants: Mr Ccnydd Howells for 
the second, fourth and sixth 
defendants. 


given to the bank by the 
defendants, 

A demand was duly made by 
ihe bank by a letter which read: 
“We hereby demand all moneys 
due to us* under the powers 
contained in the debenture 
mortgage dated September 22. 
1981 ” 

The defendants claimed that 
that was not a valid demand 
since it did not spedfy the 
amount of money due and that 
the receiver subsequently ap- 


pointed in default of payment 
was accordingly invalidly ap- 
pointed. 

It appeared that there was no 
English authority dealing with 
the point. Mr Cresswell referred 
to a persuasive case in the High 
Court of Australia. Bunbury 
Foods Pi}’ Lid v National Bank 
of Australasia Ltd ((1984) 54 
AU 199). 

In that case, under a deben- 
ture given by a company to a 
bank to secure moneys lent, the 
company undertook to pay to 
(he bank on demand “all mon- 
eys which are now or may from 
time to time hereafter be owing 
or remain unpaid to the bank”. 

When the bank demanded 
payment of the loan moneys it 
did not in its notice specify the 
amount then owing by the 
company. It was held by tl : 
whole court that that notice was 
nevertheless valid. 

The Australian court re- 
viewed the earlier English cases, 
including Massey r Sladen 
((1868) LR 4 Ex 13) where 
Baron Cleasby qu i le dearly 
thought that in the case of such a 
stringent dausc as ihat under 
discussion, the creditor ought to 
make a demand which was 
specific letting the debtor know 
what was the sum payment of 
which was required. 

But the High Court of Austra- 
lia thought otherwise and his 
Lordship found their reasoning 
as to the content of the notice of 
demand very persuasive. He 
could not see any reason why 
the creditor should not do 


MR JUSTICE WALTON 
said that the first, third and fifth 
defendants were three brothers 
who owned two companies 
engaged in the fashion trade and 
the second, fourth and sixth 
defendants were their wives. 

The companies banked with 
the plaintiff bank which took 
from them an all-moneys deben- 
ture in respect of the moneys 
owed by both companies to the 
bank which provided for the 
repayment of all moneys therey 
secured on demand and in 
default of compliance with such 
demand the bank became en- 
titled ro appoint a receiver 
thereunder. A guarantee in re- 
spect of each company was 


precisely w-hat he was. by the 
terms of bis security, entitled to 
do. that is to say. to demand 
repayment of all moneys se- 
cured by the debenture. 

.As the High Court of Austra- 
lia had pointed out. it would 
seem stupid that the creditor 
could put in. without imperil- 
ling the validity of the notice, an 
entirely wrong sum which was 
much more likely to give rise to 
confusion and difficulty than 


the form of the notice adopted 
in the present case. 

Jndred, it was quite dear that 
knowledge of the precise 
amount of the sums outstanding 
was only required in the excep- 
tional case, because in most 
cases, as in the present case, the 
debtor had no real means of 
paying off the sum due and it 
would seem idle io put the 
creditor to what might be 
considerable expense in 
ascertaining the precise amount 
due when there was no likeli- 
hood that that sum would 
represent a realistic target at 
which the debtor could aim. 

If. on the contrary, die debtor 
was in a position to pay off the 
sum demanded and wished to 
know the precise sum. he could ■ 
communicate with the creditor 
and ask him what sum he was 
expecting to be paid. 

The defendants further main- 
tained that the receiver was 
invalidly appointed since the 
bank had not allowed sufficient 
time for compliance with the 
demand before appointing a 
receiver. 

The starting point was the 
dictum of Mr Justice Blackburn 
in Bright}' v Norton ((1862) 3 B 
& S 305, 312k “I agree that a 
debtor who is required to pay 
money on demand or at a staled 
time must have it ready and is 
not entitled to further time in 
order to look for it” That 
dictum had been considered in 
later cases as to the precise 
interval between the demand 
being made and the money 
actually being produced. 

His Lordship's views were 
that money payable "on 
demand" was repayable im- 
mediatefy upon demand being 
made. Indeed, so much was that 
so that there was no doubt that 
the periods of time mentioned 
in the Limitation Act 1939 
commenced running from the 
date of the demand and not 
from any later time: see Brad- 
ford Ola Bank Ltd v Sutcliffe 
([1918] 2 KB 833). 

Nevertheless., it was phys- 
ically impossible in most cases 
for a person to keep the money 
required to discharge the debt 
about his person. The debtor 
was therefore not in default in 
making the payment demanded 
unless and until he had had a 
reasonable opportunity of im- 
plementing whatever reasonable 
mechanics of payment he might 
need to employ 

Of course, that was limited to 


the time necessary for the 
mechanics of payment. It did 
not extend to any time to raise 
the money if it was not there 

In these daysofTelex. facsim- 
ile transmission and other meth- 
ods of communication and 
transfer of money, the time 
required was exceptionally 
short 

Therefore, in a case such as 
the present where no question 
as to the authenticity of the 
actual demand itself, which

ton to the 1983 FA Cup Final, is

FOR THE RECORD 


might require another telephone 
call, came into question, the 
time allowed by the bank to the 
companies was in both cases 
amply sufficient. 

As to costs, the terms of the 
guarantee staled that the guar- 
antor would pay to the bank on 
demand all moneys due and “all 
costs charges and expenses 
which you may incur in enforc- 
ing or obtaining payment of the 
sums of money due to you from 
the principal ... or attempting 
so to do”. 

Mr Higham submitted that 
those words covered any legal 
costs that the bank might incur 
and asked for costs on an 
indemnity basis rather than the 
normal partv-and-party basis. 

Mr Moncaster argued that 
such a construction ousted the 
discretion of the court on costs, 
alternatively clearer words were 
needed to be effective. 

His Lordship said that it was 
noi possible for the bank to 
exclude the discretion of the 
court The contractual position 
was that the parlies had agreed 
that tiie costs of enforcing 
payment of the debt (and what 
way of enforcing payment was 
(here other (han litigation?) 
should be paid by the guarantor 
on an indemnity basis. 

The court could overlook that 
contractual position, thereby 
maintaining its discretion, but 
in the present case the defen- 
dants had persisted in utterly 
unreasonable defences, particu- 
larly one that there were alter- 
native finances available, and 
the bank had been put to totally 
unnecessary expense 

Therefore, basing himseirfirst 
on the express terms of the 
guarantee and second on the 
conduct of the defendants (but 
noi their legal advisers) his 
Lordship awarded costs on an 
indemnity basis.

Salary in lieu of notice not to be deducted 


Addison v Babcock FATA Ltd 
Before Mr Justice Popplewcll. 
Mr T. G. P. Robers and Mr W. 
Sirs 

[Judgment given July 7] 

An employee awarded 
compensation for unfair dis- 
missal in accordance with sec- 
tion 74(1) of the Employment 

Protection (Consolidation) Act 
1978. was not 'required to give 
credit for any payment of salary 
in lieu of notice which he had 
received from his employers. 

The decision of the appeal 
tribunal in Scotland in Finnic v 
Top Hal Frozen Foods ([1985] 
ICR 433) was to be preferred lo 
that in TBA Industrial Products 
Lid y Locke ([1984] ICR 228) 
where it was held that a payment 
in lieu of notice should be set off 
against a compensatory award. 

The Employment Appeal Tri- 
bunal allowed an appeal by Mr 
Malcolm Addison from a de- 
cision of a Bedford industrial 
tribunal last September award- 
ing him £3,457 compensation 
for unfair dismissal against the 
employers, Babcock FATA Ltd. 

Section 74(1) of the 1978 Act 
provides: 

"(I)... the amount of the 
compensatory award shall be 
such amount as the tribunal 
considers just and equitable in 
all the circumstances having 
regard to the loss sustained by 
the complainant in consequence 


of the dismissal in so for as that 
loss is attributable to action 
taken by the employer." 

Mr Andrew Hogarth for the 
employee: Mr David Pannick 
for the employers. 


MR JUSTICE 

POPPLEWELL said that the 
employee was unfairly dis- 
missed on July 20. 1984 and 
remained unemployed until 
January 7. 1485. When he was 
dismissed the employee was 
paid a sum in lieu o’f notice 
which the industrial tribunal 
had deducted from the compen- 
sator.' award. 

In TBA Industrial Products 
the appeal tribunal held that an 
employee had to give credit for 
salary in lieu of notice. Bui in 


Finnic Lord McDonald held 
that a payment of wages in lieu 
of notice ought not to be set off. 

The appeal tribunal were 
faced with what appeared to be 
two conflicting decisions. 

The toy members agreed with 
the views expressed in Finnic's 
case. They took the view that it 
was in the interest both of 
employer and employee that 
where 'the relationship had bro- 
ken down, the sooner the em- 
ployee was ofT the premises, the 
greater benefit to all concerned. 

Thai could be achieved not by 
the employee working out his 
notice but by paying him lo 
leave. Accordingly, it seemed 
that the decision in Finnic 
should be followed rather than 
what was said in the TBA case. 


The phrase "just and 
equitable” in section 74 had to 
be looked at in the light of good 
industrial practice. Ftnnie’s case 
accorded with good industrial 
practice. 

Further, comity required that 
similar principles should be 
adopted both in the English and 
Scottish divisions of the appeal 
tribunal and in the sphere or 
industrial relations it was more 
important that the law should be 
clear than clever. 

The amount of the wages in 
lieu of notice should be added to 
the award of compensation. The 
appeal would be allowed and 
leave to appeal granted.

By David Hands 
Rugby Correspondent 

Tomorrow's annual meeting 
of the Rigby Football Union 
will receive the formal presen ia- 
• tion of die proposed . English 
dub championship. Though nqt 
without blemish, jl is antici- 
pated that the championship, 
due for implementation 
1987-88. will receive-automatic 
assent, thereby avoiding the foie 
of some competitions' sub- 
committee proposals of recent 
years. :-i 

Since 19Sl_and the Burgess 
Report, - the-’ climate towards 
leagues in English rugby hqs 
changed. The new champion- 
ship proposes three national 
divisions; supported by area and 
divisional leagues, ‘with feeder 
leagues as required, in different 
parts of the country/ Bill Bishop, 
chairman, of the competitions’ 
committee, said: “I want to 
express to the AGM some of the 
thinking behind the schema 
The vast majority of-commehis 
I have received have been 
favourable.” - 

There wifi be a -1 spedaPfoU 
committee meeting shortly to 
discuss comments and sugges- 
tions arising out of tomorrow's 
meeting, ana ihe many tawyera 
on. tiie RFU .committee will 
work' over thedraft regulations 
of ihe new championship. ; 

Among comments already re- 
ceived are those, of Kent: their 
'committee, has come up with -a 
well-rounded document which 
springs from their opposition^ 
.last year's annual meeting to the 
imposition of a divisional 
championship on top of ot&r 
playing demands. They also 
believe that. . if the quality ' of 
English intefnalionaT rugby is,io 
be improved, it must stem from 
the dub structure rather than 
purely a divisional competition. 

Ken tare at variance with the 
RFU. sensibly in my view, in 
that they -would like to see all 
national division games played 
in the first half of the- season, 
rather than seven in the first b$lf 
and four in the second, which is 
being proposed. That . would 
leave time for traditional fix- 
tures and would be built into the 
intermediary representative 
programme. - 

Kent would like to -see the 
divisional championship ! apd 
county championship, prelimi- 
nary rounds played together ‘oh 
concurrent Saturdays in Decem- 
ber. This, they believe, would 
offer more players the chahccof 
recognition, reduce demands on 
leading players, and reduce the 
number of Saturdays when 
representative calls interfere 
with club games. 

They go on ' to suggest the 
county championship should be 
concluded in January, and that 
die John Player Special Cup 
should be played, in its entirety, 
between January 1 and April 30. 
To that end. they urge that the 
Five Nations Championship 
should begin in February, both 
for domestic reasons and to 
avoid the bad weather January 
often brings to the international 
series. It is fair to say England 
have tried to do this in- the past, 
without conspicuous success. 

Kent, runners-up in the 
county championship last sea- 
son. would also like to see the 
national divisions run from 
Twickenham rather than allow- 
ing the three divisions to have 
their own 'organizing commit- 
tees which could create the 
potential for a split. Beneath 
that, they envisage divisional 
leagues being organized byihe 
divisions themselves.

Mr Justice Popplewell. sitting

bunal with Mr G. A. Peers and

HIS LORDSHIP said that the

she had not been employed for 
the qualifying period of one 
year. 

If ihe week's notice com- 
menced on the day it was given 
she would not have a sufficient

The lay members of the

industry oral notice given on a

include the day on which it was

It accorded with good indus- 
trial practice to say that in the 
case of oral notice seven days* 
notice meant seven days exclu- 
sive of a day where work was 
done.

Njakioum, trainer. Michael

wtnbum. ‘ 

. 1 am not perturbed that his 
race was the Si James's 
'Palace Stakes over a mile at 
Ascot. Both Thatch and 
"Chief Singer contested that 
rac ® ww coming to New- 
■ market. But whemas they were 
both successful at Ascot, 

,preen Desert could finish 
only serond, again giving the 
.impression that a mile was 
^hsl beyond his range and that 
ra- return to sprinting would be 
beneficial. 

In the 2,000 Guineas, which 
• was run at a leisurely pace 
. parly on. Green Desert was the 
.only one to make a race of it 
.with Dancing Brave and we 
: are only too well aware of his 
^capabilities now. 

.'Confidence in Green 
"Desert’s ability to win this 
afternoon is increased by re- 
; Jerri ng to the Free Handicap 
run over seven furlongs of the 
T. Rowley Mile course in April. 

-On ground that was softer 

- than he cares for. Green 
•-Desert gave 101b and a length 
"beating to Sperry, who just 
£ rii an aged to get the better of 
\Cyrano De Bergerac in that 
.desperate finish for the Cork 
-and Orrery Stakes at Royal 
/Ascol 

While conceding that Cyra- 
. no De Bergerac is likely to 
■ have improved since then as 
• (hat was his first race of the 
1 .season, he still has quite a bit 
‘ to find on the book if he is to 
;.beat Green Desert, who won 
the July Stakes over today’s 
„ course and distance 12 

- months ago. 

Pat Eddery would have 
-been on Cyrano De Bergerac 
-'even if Double Schwartz had 
been in the field because he 


posable before the season 
even began; and he is a man 
who abides by his word. 
Eddery was not on him at 
Ascot simply because he could 
not make the requisite weight 
Double Schwartz’s late de- 
fection. caused by a slight 
hiccup in training, means that 
only Last Tycoon and 
Gwydion are left to uphold the 
form of the King's Stand 
Stakes. All of Last Tycoon's 
six wins have been achieved 
over five furlongs so he re- 
mains something of an un- 
known quantity over today's 
distance whereas Green

Desert has proved that he gets 
the trip. 

Nevertheless Robert Collet 
would not have undertaken 
this trip from France unless he 
was sure that Last Tycoon 
would last home. Whatever 
else happens, he should still 
manage to beat Gwydion 
again as she has 2 % lengths to 
make up. 

Stoute and Swinburn are 
also hopeful that Classic Tale 
will run well on his debut in 
the EBF Fulbourn Maiden 
Stakes. Being by Blushing 
Groom out of a good mare by 
Roberto, he certainly has a 
classy pedigree. But in this 
instance I prefer BeUottn, a 
$700,000 Mr Prospector 
colLwho is the subject of 
persistently glowing reports. 

Other interesting newcom- 


ers here include Farfurr and 
Hendeka. who are both by 
Shccky Greene. Farfurr being 
very closely related indeed to 
that crack miler Green Forest, 
whose first crop includes the 
fast two-year-old filly. Forest 
Rower. 

Followers of the Ceril- 
Cauthen camp will be banking 
upon Kudz carrying his War- 
wick penally successfully in 
the H & K Commissions 
Silver Jubilee Handicap. But t 
cannot help wondering wheth- 
er he will manage to give as 
much as 101b to Actinium, 
who has already won once 
over today's exacting course 
and distance this season. 

Actinium Jater failed by 1 % 
lengths to give Knights Leg- 
end 51b at Sandown. With 
Knights Legend then finishing 
a highly creditable second in 
the Queen’s Vase at Royal 
Ascot, Actinium’s form has a 
respectable look about iL 

Richard Quinn, his able 
young jockey, who was seen to 
such good effect again on 
Patriach on Tuesday, also has 
a good chance of winning the 
Addison Tools Handicap on 
Resourceful Falcon, who fol- 
lowed two good efforts in 
similar races at York and 
Haydock with a highly com- 
mendable performance in the 
Jersey Slakes at Royal Ascot, 
even though he was unplaced 
eventually. 

The feeling remains, 
though, that the handicapper 
has collared Resourceful Fal- 
con so I am happy to take a 
chance with Chief Pah in the 
belief that this lightly-raced 
colt, who was runner-up to 
Orban at Nottingham, is on a 
much more handy marie. 

Royal Loft, another in that 
category, is taken to win the 
Bahrain Trophy. I thought 
that there was much to admire 
about the way that she chased 
the smart Vianora home at 
Ascot oo her seasonal debuL 



Sonic Lady proves mo strong for her rivals in the dosing stages of yesterday’s Child Stakes at Newmarket 

Stoute double-handed for Ascot 


By Michael Seely 

The Aga Khan and Michael 
Stoute plan to fanoch a tiro- 
pronged assault on the King 
George VT and Qneeu Elizabeth 
Diamond Stakes at Ascot on 
July 26. Explaining then- de- 
cision to take on Dancing Brave 
with both Shahrastanl and 
Shardari, the Newmarket 
trainer said yesterday: 
“Shardari is improving all the 
time and has earned the right to 
run. Pat Eddery will ride the 
foar-year old and Walter 
Swinbnrn will of course be on 
ShahrastanL The only proviso is 
that Shahnutani might be with- 
drawn if the ground were to 
become too 600." 

The derision to aim both the 
winner of the English and Irish 
Derbys and Shardari at 
Britain's most important all- 
aged race is hardly surprising. 
The King George and the Pm; 
de 1'Arc de Tnomphe are the 
only group one races ran over a 
mile and a half of any con- 
sequence doling the remainder 
of the season, so the plan to 
mount as powerful an attack as 
possible is logical. 


Other news concerning the big 
race came from Dick Hern, who 
said that last year's winner, 
Petoslu, would still take his 
chance. Speaking from his home 
io West Ilsley after winning the 
opening Cecil Boyd-Rochfort 
Stakes with Canadian M2U, the 
Royal trainer said: “I have to be 
very disappointed with PetosJcTs 
third to Shardari on Tuesday, 
particularly as he was goiag so 
well when taking op tbe rnaning. 
Bat one swallow does oot make a 
summer and be is still entitled to 
go to Ascot.” 

Stonte's golden season contin- 
oed when Sonic Lady added the 
Child Stakes to the laurels she 
has already won this season in 
the Irish 1,000 Guineas and the 
Coronation Stakes at Ascot. 
Surprisingly, Stoute has only 
won 25 races at home this 
season, hot these include 24 
group and listed events. And if 
he continues to captive (he 
major prizes at this rate, the 
trainer's earnings conld well top 
£2 million by the end of the 

faifalgn. 

After going to the front two 
Furlongs from home. Sonic Lady 
had to fight quite hard to ward of 


the attention of the Epsom 
i WM>fS winner, Dusty Dollar. 
However, she was striding out 
with zest at the finish and if was 
some time before Swinbnrn 
could poll up Sheikh 
Mohammed's filly. 

“Walter said she was more 
relaxed today than ever before,** 
Stoute said afterwards.- "And 
she's always inclined to idle 
when to front. However, the add 
test win come when she takes on 
the colts and older horses in the 
Sussex Stakes at Goodwood.” 

The major surprise of tbe 
afternoon came when Cash 
Asmussea rode Mansooj to a 25- 
1 triumph for Neville Callaghan 
ia the Anglia Television July 
Stakes. S win burn was dislodged 
and banged his right knee when 
Whippet veered up in the stalls 
before the race but the pair were 
reunited and took part in the 
contest. Willie Carson and Who 
Knows threw out a determined 
Challenge in the last furlong, hot 
Mansooj held on gamely to win 
by a length. 

After winning at Newmarket 
in May, Mansooj had dis- 
appointed Callaghan when 


finishing unplaced behind Cut- 
ting Blade in the Coventry 
Stakes at Royal Ascot, “I don't 
know what went wrong there as I 
landed him a lot,” the trainer 
said. “I suppose that either the 
Heinz 57 Stakes in Ireland or 
tbe Richmond Stakes at 
Goodwood are now possibilities 
but the colt needs a bit of cut in 
the ground.” 

With the Keeneland July sale 
under a fortnight away, the 
Maktoum brothers of Dubai 
received encouragement ibr their 
f ut ur e purchases when Sa bailie, 
a $310,000 buy in tbe States last 
season, won the Bernard Van 
Cutsem Stakes at tbe first time 
of asking for Sheikh Moham- 
med, Henry Cecil and Steve 
Canthen. 

This result most have given 
Cecil great relief as the stroagty- 
fancied Martha Stevens had 
been left at tbe start in the 
opener and Twyla had dis- 
appointed behind Forest Flower 
in Tuesday's Cherry Hinton 
Stokes. “I thinks lot of this colt 
and be did it nicety,** the five- 
times champion trainer said. 
“But basically he needs n longer 
distance and softer going.”

Potential of 
new gallop 

The possibility of racing 
continuing in adverse weather 

conditions moved a step nearer 

yesterday when the new nine- 

furlong all-weather gallop, 
which has been donated to 
Newmarket by Sheikh Haradan 

Al Maktoum, was opened on the 

Railway Land private ground 

(Michael Seely writes). 

Constructed of an entirely 
new material by En-iout-cas, 
this surface opens up exciting 
possibilities for winter racing. 

Genera! Sir Cecil Blacker, the 
chairman of the committee 
which has been inquiring into 

the possibility of all-weather 

tracks, said: “Sbowumpers 
have already been over five- foot 

fences at Stoneleigh on this 

material. 

“We’re looking forward to 
putting up a couple of hurdles 

on this gallop and seeing how 

horses jump them." 


IN BRIEF 

Nystrom’s 
action 
replay is 
foiled 

GsiaaCL Switzerland (AP) — 
Unseeded Milan. Srejber, of 
Czechoslovakia, fought back to 
oust Sweden's Joakim Nystrom 
2-6. 6-3. 6-2 in the first round of 
the Swiss Open tennis 
tournament. 

The surprise win by Srejber, 
who is. 38th in the ATP 
rankings, dashed the 23-year-old 
Swede's hopes fora repeat of last 
year’s victory at Gsiaad. 
Nystrom was seeded second this 
year. 

In second round action, there 
were easy victories for seeded 

S layers. Emilio Sanchez, of 
pain, and Mikael Pemfors. of 
Sweden. Another Swede, Jan 
Gunnarsson, triumphed over 
West Germany’s Andreas 
Maurer, who eliminated the 
fifth seed, Guy Foigei, of 
FiranCe. in the first round. 

In the last first-round game, 
Dutchman Mich id Schapcra de- 
feated the No. 7 seed. Heinz 
GurMhardL of Switzerland. 6-3, 
6-7. 6-3.

Bronze Opal for ladies’ race 


Bronze OpaL a smooth win- 
ner of the Jim Slaier Apprentice 
Maiden Stakes at Warwick yes- 
terday. is likely logo to Ascot for 
the ladies race on King George 
VI and Queen Elizabeth Di- 
amond Stakes day. 

Lee Jones brought Bronze 
Opal with a well-timed chal- 
lenge to overhaul Red River 
Boy inside the final furiong and 
score bv three-quarters of a 
length, toby Balding, the win- 
ning trainer, said: “Bronze Opal 
had to have a chance on form, 
particularly if he reproduced 
some or his two-ycarold 
running. 

“He’s pretty highly handi- 
capped and difficult to place and 
I think the ladies' race at Ascot 
is the solution- He will probably 
be ridden there by Jane 
Sofithcombe. a good point-to- 


point rider who is riding out 
work regularly for me." 

Glenn French, twice cham- 
pion jockey of Zimbabwe and 
now hoping to make a pen na- 
nem career here, partnered his 
third winner in this country 
when Tropieo got up to beat 
Fulham Mills by a short head in 
the Summer Handicap- 

“1 came over for a month s 
working holiday last season and 
rode a winner for Frank Durr, to 
whose stable I Ml now 
attached.” French said “I also 
ride out for Fat Haslam and 
Peter CundeiL”. 

Tropieo is trained by Haslam 
and provided the Newmarket 
trainer with his eleventh winner 
this season. All those successes 
have come in recent weeks — 
since Haslam shook off the 
malaria which confined him io 
bed for seven w^eks.

CRICKET: HOLDERS KNOCKED OUT OF SECOND ROUND OF THE NATWEST TROPHY 


ATHLETICS 


Nicholas’s men 


prove again 
to be their own 


worst enemies 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


SOUTHAMPTON: Worces- 
tershire beat Hampshire by 66 
runs. 

Hampshire displayed their 
genius again yesterday in the 
Nat West Trophy for losing 
one-day matches which they 
are desperately keen to win. 
Worcestershire outplayed 
them in lovely weather and 
before a large and disappoint- 
ed crowd. Chasing 279 with- 
out Green idge. who has a 
broken toe. was more than 
Hampshire could manage. Of 
Worcestershire's total, their 
opening pair, D'Oliveira and 
Curtis, scored nearly half. 
D'Oliveira played well while 
making the early running: 
Curtis, after a slow start (17 in 
the first 19 overs), began to 
find the gaps where he had 
previously been finding the 
fielders. Curtis stayed until the 
52nd over, and when he was 
out Patel and Rhodes played 
tip-and-run to good effect 
Hampshire were greatly agi- 
tated by an incident involving 
Hick. It happened after 
D'Oliveira had been caught at 
the wickeL Marshall was in 
the second over of his second 
spell and Hick, pushing firmly 
at bis first bail without quite 
getting across to iu edged it 
straight to the gully, where 
Robin Smith held a nice knee- 
high catch. To Hampshire's 
amazement Hick stood his 

t round and umpire 

irkenshaw shared the 
batsman's view that it was a 
bump bail. 

No one knows better than 
the striker whether in playing 
his stroke he has squeezed the 
ball into the ground. Hick 


thought he had, though there 
was no knowing it from a 
distance. In the event it was of 
small consequence; Hick soon 
being caught at the wicket at 
the second attempt by Parks, 
high and wide to his Tight, off 
Connor. Marshall, who has 
had the measure of Hick this 
season, had just come off! 

Connor, who was admirably 
steady (his six overs at the 
start of the day cost only five 
runs, three of. them on no- 
balls), and Cowley both 
pegged Worcestershire down. 
James and Nicholas, on the 
other hand, conceded 1 00 
runs off their 14 overs, bowl- 
ing while Worcestershire were 
on the attack. In the field,' 
Marshall ran Smith out with a 
fast, low return from deep 
square leg, when Smith was 
going for a second, and Terry 
was athletically ubiquitous.

By Richard Streeton 


TRENT BRIDGE: Nottingham- 
shire beat Kent by 6 wickets. 

Nottinghamshire, 
beaten finalists, dominated this 
second-round NaiW«t Trophy 
match. They won with 18 oven 
in hand, an unusually tagh 
margin between teams of mis 

calibre. On a lively pitch Kent 
failed to capitalize on a g ooa 

start. Nottinghamshire, needing 
162. lost three wickets m 
successive overs near the ena. 
before Rice finished the game 
with a legside six off Ellison. 

Breed, who won the man-oi- 
ihe-match award, and Robinson 
launched Nottinghamshire's re- 
ply with a confident stand of 1 20 
in 30 overs. Broad gave one

BRISTOL Leicestershire with 
scrcn wickets in hand need 52 
runs to heat Gloucestershire 

Gloucestershire, the county 
championship leaders, mus- 
tered only 177 with indifferent 
baiting against Leicestershire 
yesterday and were heading for 
defeat when bad light 
intervened. 

Thanks to a stout innings by 
the veteran Balderstone, who 
ended with 66 including nine 
fours over a large outfield, 
Leicestershire were coasting ro 
victory at 98 for no wicket in the 
32nd over. But they then lost 
three wickets for nine runs in 
seven overs either side of tea as 
Gloucestershire regained just a 
glimmer of hope. First Cobb, 
who had made only 23. was 
stumped down the leg side off 
Graveney. then Stovold slickly 
held a chest-high catch from 
Gower round the comer, and 


comfort Walsh had five fielders . 
round (he bat as Willey and 
Potter fended off further trou- 
bles before, mindful of Walsh’s 
speed, they accepted Ibe 
umpires' second examination of 
bad light. 

Up to that point it had been a 
disappointing contest, in con- 
trast to the teams' last meeting 
in the competition three years 
ago when Gloucestershire 


,y and Down ton needed 

little invitation to leave the 
field, for the loss of Butcher 
suddenly made Yorkshire's total 
far more sizeable than >1 had 
done at the end of their innings. 

Yorkshire's decision to bat 


was put into question immedi- 
ately as Cowans, in bis most 
eager mood, removed Metcalfe 
and Shsup in his first two overs. 
Metcalfe was adjudged lbw. 
Sharp went comprehensively 
bowled as be lost his middle 
stump to a ball of pace and full 
length. 

Moxon. however, perhaps 
aware that a good innings 
against Middlesex in a limited 
overs match could be a passport 
towards facing New Zealand* 
demonstrated that he was in 
form with a flowing cover drive 
from Daniel In company with 
the gritty Hartley he began to 
restore his side's fortunes. 

Progress was steady, if stow, 
as Hughes, Edmonds and 
Emburey kept up the pressure. 
The pair put on 55 in 24 overs 
when Hartley drove the ball 
hard and low to Emburey. to be 
given out after consultation 
between the umpires. The crowd 
reacted unhappily, with no 
suggestion that they were 
expressing their disapproval at 
Hartley’s failure to walk. 


Robinson, who looks like 
Billy Burner but bats like Tom 
Merry, hitting the ball with an 
uncomplicated zest which 
sometimes disguises his tech- 
nical orthodoxy, however joined 
Moxon to give Yorkshire hope 
of riches to come. 

In his first non-Sunday 
appearance of the season as a 
replacement for the injured 
Boycott, he dominated their 
partnership of 79 in 19 overs, 
shaking the bowlers’ control for 
the first lime. When Daniel 
returned to trap Moxon lbw in 
the 46th over, Yorkshire's vi- 
sion of a reasonable total was 
still bright. It remained so while 
Robinson continued on his 
untroubled way. Cowans re- 
turned to be greeted with a 
flashing bat. but an attempted 
straight six proved, somewhat 
unluckily, his undoing. Butcher 
judged a difficult catch to 
perfection on the boundary. 
With Robinson's departure the 
decline was ignominious as five 
wickets tumbled for eight runs 
in 18 deliveries. 


jpg which, too of 

Robinson, who pulled Under- 
wood for one massive six, was 
caught behind as he swished 
outside the off stump. Ra nda l l 
retired hurt after being struck on 
the hand by Ellison, while 
Broad, always driving and pull- 
ing freely, was splendidly caught 
by Benson at square leg. John- 
son was well caught at slip and 
Hadlee by the wicket-keeper, 
but Kent’s rally had come too 
late. 

Kent looked thoroughly out- 
classed at times, and this perfor- 
mance wilt bring some hard 
thinking in its wake before 
Saturday's Benson and Hedges 
Cup final at Lord’s. It was an 
unfortunate toss to lose. Batting 
looked a nasty proposition first 
thing, on a hard, bouncy pitch, 
from which the ball frequently 
lifted higher than expected. The 
conditions did not seem to 
change greatly later, but Kent’s 
bowlers seldom posed the same 
threat. 

Once the Kent opening bats- 
men were separated, the innings 
subsided rapidly, and there was 
never a bint that a recovery

department. The most signifi- 
cant contribution towards 
Kent’s collapse were by Kevin 
Evans, an. all-rounder who 
makes only occasional first- 
team appearances, and French, 
the wicket-keeper. - - 

Evans, aged 22 .and 6ft 2in 
tall lock four wickets in two 
economic spells . of brisk me- 
dium-paced bowling. He played 
in place of Birch, who was 
injured, and was sixth-choice 
bowler in the pecking order.' 
French accepted three superb 
catches, diving full length each 
time, and his selection by- En- 
gland has dearly spurred him to 
new heights in recent days. 

Benson and Hinks kept their 
nerve, and played with consid- 
erable skill as they put on 72 
together in 23 oyeis. They had 
some minor good fortune, the 
nearest to a serious mistake 
coming when Hinks. on 38, gave 
a hard-chance to Rice, at dip. off 
Hem mings. They were . sepa- 
rated when Benson went to 
drive Evans and snicked a catch 
to slip. In his next oyer, Evans 
knocked back Tavare’s off- 
slump as the former England 
player drove loosely. 

Hinks was next to go when 
Hadlee returned for a second 
spell and was bowled middle- 
stump as be . _ 
to the New Zealander's second 
ball. Hadlee gave Chris' 
Cowdrey a gruelling time before 
he bowled turn soon afterwards. 
Taylor and Baptiste both drove 
catches to mid-on . as Kent 
desperately tried to accelerate. 

Graham .Cowdrey was the 
first. of French’s victims when 
Hadlee returned for one over, 
and there could be no recovery 
for Kent from 136 for seven 
from SI overe. Notts retained 
tight control and Hadlee was not 
even summoned to complete his 
full allocation of 12 overs.

■ Moscow 

Ben Johnson certainly has the 
belter of Carl LeW at . the 
moment, beating the American 
-quadruple Olympic champion 
lor the second time this season, 
but doing it fast night in the 
Lenin Stadium at the Goodwill 
Games noth the superb time of 
9.95 seconds, the second fastest - 
ever, only 2/I00ths of a second 
outside the world record. 

Lewis did not even have the 
recompense for his. own fast 
time in second place, for he was 
beaten into third byChidi Imoh, 
of Nigeria,, who also finished 
second to Johnson in'the World 
Cup in Canberra last year in 
Lewis', absence. 

Johnson did 10 seconds in 
Australia.- the same time as the 
stadiam dock stopped at fast 
night but the time was revised 
downwards as it has been so 
many times in these games, 
giving rise to some suspicion by 
the - Americans of tampering, but 
there could not have been any 
tampering with the result of the 
race. 

It was a nervous start with 
Johnson responsible for one of 
the 'breaks' before the gun. But 
it would not have done him 
much good because bis blocks 
slipped. When they finally got 
away. Johnson had a slight lead 
on Lewis at half way and on 
three others in this excellent 
field, Imoh, Harvey Glance and 
Michael Morris. But then John- -

award. 

Warwickshire, who won the 
loss, were without Kallichanan, 
man of the match in their first 
round victory. He has a knuckle 
injury. On a pitch every bit as 
enjoyable to bat on as on that 
occasion, Lloyd and Smith be-

switched their bowlers to little

dependent on Humpage to 
make a decent score and he did 
not disappoint. Lever was 
flicked away for four and then 
six. with an easy pick-up; other 
shots were bludgeoned. 
Humpage bad made 70 with 
seven fours and that six when he 
was fifth out, advancing down 
the pitch at Acfield. After that, 
no one got going, although Asif 
Din held the innings together. 
Thorne hit a full toss to mid-on 
and Foster and Pringle looked 
after the uil 

A score of 255 was the 
minimum Warwickshire would 
have wanted on this pitch. Essex 
have been out of sorts this past 


week but have been without 
their Test players. Gooch and 
Stephenson, playing his first 
NatWest match, gave them a 
solid start of 98 m 29 oven. 


Stephenson was in no way 
overshadowed. In fact, he out- 
scored bis captain, playing 
virtually everything, hooks in- 
cluded. off the front foot He 
included five fours and two 
sixes in his half-century. 


However, Essex then col- 
lapsed. Gooch, who made 48 
with seven fours, was leg-before 
to Small, Stephenson went in 
like manner to Parsons. Prich- 
ard drove too uppishly to cover 
before he had settled and Border 
played on.Lilley, Pont and East 
went in rapid succession, the 
last named run out by Lloyd 
from cover. Essex had lost seven 
wickets for 46. Pringle, the one 
person who could have pulled 
them round, made room to cut 
Gifford and was bowled. 


By Peter Marsoo 

Sussex’s 269 for nine was too 
great a target for Glamorgan at 
Hove, yesterday, and in' their 
victory by 29 runs, meant that 
Sussex had gained revenge, hav- 
ing been comfortably beaten by 
Glamorgan in the second round 
in the NatWest Trophy at 
Cardiff last season. Allan 
Green's innings of 102, was the 
reason why. Glamorgan needed 
to score at between four and five 
runs an over to win, and that 
proved to be beyond them. 

Sussex had faltered at the start 
of their innings when Lenham 
became the first of four batsmen 
to be ran out but Green was in 
fine form and his influence in 
partnerships with Parker and 
Imran enabled Sussex to draw 
away, with Green reaching a 
good half century off 76 balls as 
Sussex got to 92 for two from 26 
overs.

By Michael Berry 

LA KEN HAM: New Zealand, 
with all first innings wickets 
standing, are 201 runs behind 
Minor Counties. 

The sun stayed away for most 
of the day but Lakenham still 
looked a picture and Uie locals 
came out in numbers to witness 
the rare sight of a touring team. 
The last tourists here were India 
in 1971. New Zealand have to 
go back to 1937 and the days of 
Walter Hadlee since they lari 
appeared on the ground. 

To mark the visit British 
Telecom sponsored the match 
and unveiled a new electronic 
scoreboard. Better still, dumb, 
a Norfolk man who lives in 
Essex and plays his club cricket 
in Hertfordshire, took the day's 
honours after the Minors had 
elected to baL 

Plumb and Green sword 
showed admirable resolve on a 
slow wicket that demanded line 
and length from the bowlns. 
Plumb maintaining a ran of 
good form in making a patient 
69 before being trapped sweep- 
ing the wrong line against Gray. 

Ridddl and Rate], the Dur- 
ham left-handers, pushed things 
along in the afternoon before 
Riddell departed at mid-wicket 
and after tea the tail subsided to 
209, Gray's impressive slow left- 
arm rewarded with five for 54. 

Disappointingly, only four 
overs were bowled at the tour- 
ists before they took an offer of 
bad light rather than see out the 
lively opening bowling of Mur- 
phy and Merry.

runs an over in the 
partnership. They were 
by some rather casual catching 
and out-cricket from Somerset, 
although- taken as a whole. 
Somerset's was not a bad 
containing effort 
Just before lunch. Abrahams 
was out. He had reached his SO, 
as had Mend/s. who was out just 
afterwards. Much depended on 
Lloyd. His threatening look and 
occasional threatening stroke 
kept the Somerset supporters 
nervous and the Lancastrians 
(of whom there were a large 
number) eager, but at 205 be 
was run out, thanks to a 
splendid throw by Rose and 
after that it was just a matter of 
scrabbling around 
Somerset tost Feltham almost 
at once. Roebuck was out at 30 
in the 14th over. Nothing in it so 
far. Then came Richards, which 
1 felt to be the second critical 
moment of the day. I was fairly 
confident of his success, since be 
had two ducks immediately 
behind him. Richards looked 
solid and had reached SO when 
he was out at 109. This was a 
blow to Somerset, but at tea, 35 
overs. 1 1 5 for three, (he play was 
no better balanced. 


.... who docked 10.04, to 
Lewis's- 10.06. 

- Edwin Moses had to work 
hard for his filth straight 
victory in the 400 metres hur- 
dles. It is common currency 
among his competitors that 
Moses is so over-protective of 
his winning streak that be will 
either only race against tough 
opposition when fie is on his 
best form, or against, mediocre 
fields. Accordingly, after an 18- 
month lay-off through injury. 
Moses went to a small race m 
Finland a fortnight ago. and ran 
an unpressed sub-49 seconds. 
But he did not run in the 
American .championships,, 
where the first two were auto- 
matically selected for these 
Goodwill Games. Moses relied 
oo an invitation in tandem with 
his job for WTBS, the television 
company which is funding these 
games. . . 

Moses's own nervousness was' 
apparent from his false start, 
and the constant tying and 
retying of his shoelaces. Toma 
Tomov, of Bulgaria, led Motes 
until the seventh hurdle, and 
Aleksandr- Varilyev chased Mo- 
ses all the way to the line. But 
the .double Olympic champion 
had the fast, faugh; his 47.94 
seconds is the fastest in the 
world this year, taking: 0.01 
seconds off And it Phillips best 
time, set in the. first Mobil 
Grand Prix meeting of the 
season. 

• Vakhtang Yago rash vi l i. with 

an awesome winning score of 
5.581 pts, led a dean Soviet 
sweep of the men's modem 
pentathlon contest in Moscow. 
A close second was Anatoly 
Avdeyev. with 5.521 pts, and 
third Igor Shvarts, 5.495 pis.

THURSDAY JULY 10 1986 


A flying start 


by Stephen 


for the Open 


By MitdbelJ Platts 


Lindsay Stephen became 
the latest in a long line of 
intrepid Australian golfers 
seeking Open Championship 
glory when he compiled a first 
round of 65 in the Car Care 
Plan International on the 
Moortown course in Leeds. 

Since Peter Thomson won 
the first of his five Opens in 
1954 a succession of Austra- 
lians have attempted to win 
the coveted prize though only 
Kel Nagle emerged victorious 
by turning back the challenge 
of Arnold Palmer at Si An- 
drews in 1 960. 

Stephen, however, is so 
determined to join forces with 
compatriates such as Ian Bak- 
er-Finch. David Graham, 
Graham Marsh and Greg 
Norman when the 1 1 5th Open 
begins at Tumberry next 
Thursday that he considered 
an ambitious plan to 
reconnoitre the Western 
Gailes course on which he 
might be compelled to pre- 
qualify. 

As he was in the first group 
to go out — teeing off at 7.20 — 
Stephen was back in the 
Moortown dub house before 
1 1.30 and he initially intended 
to drive the 250 miles to 
Ayrshire in order to play a 
practice round at Western 
Gailes then return to 
Yorkshire. 

Stephen was persuaded to 
abandon that plan, though he 
could still interrupt his chal- 
lenge for the Car Care Plan 
International by leaving at the 
end of his second round today 


as there is the possibility of a 
golf enthusiast taking him 
north of the border in a 
private plane. 

What prompted Slepheo to 
even consider taking on the 
journey was his discovery that 
the Royal and Ancient, orga- 
nizers of the Open, will dose 
the Western Gailes course for 
practice at 2.00 on Saturday 
when he is likely to still be 
competing at Moortown.

In truth Stephen has it in his 
own hands to avoid the need 
to even cast a glance over 
Western Gailes as he can earn 
a place in the Open Champi- 
onship simply by continuing 
to dominate the Moortown 
course. For the leading five 
players, otherwise not exempt 
for the Open, who finish 
among the top 25 in the Car 
Care Plan International are 
spared the ordeal of having to 
pre-qualify. 

John Morgan also applied 
himsdf well to the task of 
overcoming one of the more 
punishing of England's inland 
courses by recovering the 
form which enabled him to 
win tiie Jersey Open last 
month. He achieved some- 
thing of a miracle by being the 
only player not to drop a shot 
throughout the day as he put 
together a 67.

Italian Open two months ago,

SHOWJUMPING 


Pressure mounts on British 


as Americans forge ahead 


From Jenny MacArthur, Aachen, West Germany 


The Americans have moved 
into the lead at the end of the 
first part of the team competi- 
tion for the world champion- 
ships here after a tense 
opening round. 

Britain, who were level- 
pegging with the Americans 
for much of the competition, 
are a close second. West 
Germany are lying third, just 
ahead of France. Britain's four 
riders cannot afford to make a 
mistake in today's Nations 
Cup competition if they are to 
have any chance of overtaking 
the polished American 
quartet 

West Germany’s Paul 
Schockemohle, who already 
has three consecutive Europe- 
an titles under his belt has 
gone into the lead for the 
individual title after a superb 
round on Next Deister, which 
had the home crowd almost 
beside itself with excitement 


Britain's Malcolm Pyrah and 
Nick Skelton are in fourth and 
fifth places respectively, sepa- 
rated from Schockemohle by 
the two Americans, Conrad 
Homseld and Michael Matz. 

Yesterday's class, in which 
15 teams took part was a 
speed event in which seven 
penalty seconds were added to 
the rider's time. Arno Gego’s 
cleverly designed 14-fence 
course contained an unusual 
treble with a water jump as the 
middle element It caused by 
far the mo$t trouble on the 
course with riders pushing on 
bard in order to dear the water 
and then finding their horses 
unbalanced for the third 
element 

Nick Skelton set the stan- 
dard for the rest of the British 
team when he produced a 
superb clear round on Raffles 
Apollo to take the early lead.

Warren Point had a foot in the 
water but were fast enough — 
luckily for Britain as things 
turned out — to stay in 
contention. They were fol- 
lowed by another fine dear 
round from Malcolm Pyrah 
on Toweriands Anglezarke, 
the horse on which he won the 
individual silver medal at the 
last world championships in 
Dublin. 

Meanwhile, the Americans 
had been matching the British 
almost stride for stride. They 
had clear rounds from Mi- 
chael Matz on Chef and Katie 
Monahan on Amadia and 
seven penalty seconds added 
on to Katherine Burdsall’s 
score with The Natural after a 
foot in the water. 

It all hinged on the perfor- 
mance of the two final riders. 
America's fourth team mem- 
ber, the experienced Conrad 
Homfeld. with Abdullah, nev- 
er looked in any danger of 
hitting a fence and produced 
the fastest round of the team. 


Britain's fourth rider, John 
Whitaker, on Hopscotch, 
fared less welL So often in this 
crucial fourth position 
Whitaker is normally one of 
the most reliable team mem- 
bers. Yesterday however. 
Hopscotch was momentarily 
distracted and had a refusal at 
fence four, a blue and white 
upright, and so with his score 
climbing into three figures his 
became the discounted one 
(the best three scores count for 
the team championship). 

It was lucky that his brother 
Michael's quick thinking in- 
spired him to produce such a 
fast round which made up for 
his penalty at the water. 

The French, billed as joint 
favourites with the Americans 
and British, had a disappoint- 
ing opening round from 
Patrice Delaveau on Laeken. 
With their last rider, Michel 
Robert, on Lafayette, having a 
knock-down at fence four, 
they relied heavily on Pierre 
Durand on Jappeloup and 
Frederic Cottier on Flambeau 
to keep them in contention. 
Durand produced a typically 
fast dear round and Cottier, a 
member of tbe winning side at 
the Iasi world championships 
in Dublin, had a foot in the 
water but like Whitaker wem 
fast enough to keep his team in 
the picture. 

Today’s two-round Nations 
Cup competition will decide 
the team evenL The 20 best 
riders in the team event then 
go into the third leg of the 
individual contest on 
Saturday.

Moscow summit: Babka raises an arm after raising his record 


View from up above for 
the man named Bubka 


From Pat Botcher, Athletics Correspondent, Moscow 


Sergei Babka has no peer, 
and he knows it. He has 
proved himself tbe best in the 
world not once but six times, 
the latest occasion being two 1 
nights ago here in the Lenin 
stadium. He does not go oat of 
his way to impress his superi- 
ority on anyone. Bat if anyone 
asks, he states the evidence. 

The man from L’Eqaipe 
asked what Babka thought of 
his French opposition? Like 
some Lord of the snows boldly 
watching Napoleon’s retreat 
from the Moscow winter, 
Babka replied impassionately: 
“I have no opposition at the 
moment.” 


Olson finished out of the 
medals. 

In Rome almost two years 
ago another pretender, Thier- 
ry Vigneron, unproved by one 
centimetre the world record of 
5.90 metres that Bubka had 
set in London. Bubka respond- 
ed five minutes later with 
another world record, 5.94. 
Only the Soviet boycott of Los 
Angeles has deprived Bubka 
of the single prize, an Olympic 
gold medal, that he now needs 
for historic greatness. 


he had cleared the bar an bom- 
before. 


Speed and strength 
are his talents 


The way he cleared 6.01 
metres by a boot a foot here on 
Tnesday night suggests that 
there will be no opposition for 
a long time to come. There 
have been pretenders of 
course. And one of them made 
an inadvertant and hilarious 
entry to Bubka's post-victory 
press conference. A laborious 
translation was loudly inter- 
rupted by a tannoy announce- 
ment. The frowns and 
complaints dissolved in echoes 
of Bubka's laughter when the 
person announced was a “Dr 
Olson”. 

Billy Olson, of the United 
States, managed to beat 
Bnbka in Madison Square 
Garden in January. Two 
weeks alter Olson's win, 
Babka went back to New York 
and won the .American title 
with a world indoor best. 


He is not one of tbe most 
tactically correct pole-vault- 
ers. Vigneron is better. The 
way Aleksandr Krupsky le- 
vered himself np off his pole 
and wrapped himself around 
the 5.60 metres bar without 
tou ching it was a model of 
gymnastic efficiency. Bnt 
Bnbka has other talents: 
speed, strength, and seemingly 
unlimited competitive aggres- 
sion. Krupsky stayed on 5.60 
metres, and Bnbka did Ml. 

The press conference was 
devolving into a debate on the 
respective merits of hard and 
soft poles, and most of ns were 
nodding off. Suddenly, with as 
much subtlety as if a 161b shot 
had been sent hissing towards 
him, came a question which 
committed Bnbka to finish off 
the conference as effectively as 


“Sergei,” a Bulgarian corre- 
spondent quizzed, his voice 
doll with sincerity, “to whom 
do yon dedicate your records?” 

It was a loaded invitation, 
reminiscent of questionnaires 
to East European athletes in 
the 1950s by Western maga- 
zine editors determined to 
detect the deviation of the 
“personality celt”. In those 
days, tbe question ran some- 
thing like: “Do yon like being 
a star, or would yon rather jnst 
be a man in Gorky Street?” 

This latest version was 
equally baited and, as we 
waited for the response, we 
wondered: would it be Com- 


rade Gorbachov, implying po- 
►? Or would it 


litical correctness? 
be Ted Turner, tbe ebullient 
television magnate from Geor- 
gia, who funded these Good- 
will Games, and who walked 
into his own press conference 
three days ago with a, “hi 
y'all, seen any of my Commie 
buddies?” 

Bubka may look less than 
ready but he is uo mag. “I 
dedicate my record to ay son, 
Vitaly, who is one-year-old 
tomorrow.” We almost 
applaoded. 

Bubka intends to have only 
one more competition before 
the European championships 
in Stuttgart next month, and 
that will probably be at the 
Mobil Grand Prix meeting in 
West Berlin on Angnst 15.

continue competing in the 
four-lap evenL “I haven't 
given up the mile, but I'll wait 
until after the Commonwealth 
Games before deciding wheth- 
er I’ll make an attempt to run 
in the 1,500 metres in the 
European Championships," 
he said. “My aim at the 
moment is to win the gold 
medal in the Commonwealth

Hinault 



pulls off 
old trick 


From John Wflcocksoa, 
Cherbourg 


Guido Bontempi, who won 
five stages of the Giro d'ltalia 
last month, was a convincing 
winner of the sixth stage of the 
Tour de France yesterday. 
The tall Italian, aged 26, 
roared up the long dimb to the 

finish and had almost 20 yards 

to spare on Roberto Pagnin, a 
compatriot, and tbe three 
other members of a breakaway 
which developed in. the final 
20 miles of a surprisingly 
rapid stage. 

Bontempi succeeded Andre 
Leducq, one of the sport’s 
greatest sprinters, who won 
the last Tour de France staj 
to finish in Cherbourg in 192! 
Thanks to his victory yester- 
day, Bontempi moved to thud 
overall, 37 seconds behind 
Johan Van.der Velde, , the 
overnight leader, whose Pana- 
sonic team closed a . two 
minute gap' to 56 seconds in 
the fust six miles. 

These were the bare brines 
of a sunny, windswept day. 
but the flesh was provided by 
Bernard Hinault, one of the 
race favourites. The Breton, 
aged 31, has not paid much 
attention to the bonus sprints 
this year, so it was regarded 
with amusement when he 
feigned an attack jnst after the 
day’s second sprint, just 30 
out of Villers-sur-Mer. 


m: 


The only other team leader 
to react to Hinault’s move was 
Stephen Roche, the Irishman, 
who is quickly regaining his 
best form. Roche had three of 
his Carrera team-mates with 
him and they joined forces 
with Hinault to force a 90- 
second lead within five miles, 
while in the leading group of 
) I were three Panasonic riders 
who did all they could to slow 
the pace.

Peugeot, yet another French 
squad, look up the chase. At St 
Lo, 30 miles after tbe initial 
attack, the gap was. still 45 
seconds. Sensing the danger, 
Fignon surged out of the pack 
on the long climb leaving the 
town. The Frenchman, who 
has twice .woo the Tour de 
France, took with him Charly 
Monet, his team colleague and 
two other race favourites, 
Greg Lemond and Marino 
Lejarreta. 

The battle raged for another 
10 miles, but an acceleration 
by Silvano Comini, the Ital- 
ian. brought up the main 
group to quell the storm. 

Hinault has tried surprise 
attacks before, most notably 
two years ago when his efforts 
were designed to mask bis lack 
of effectiveness in the moun- 
tains. The plan did not work 
1984 because Hgnoo 


in 


proved too strong. Perhaps the 
same scenario will be played 
out ibis year.

mark : “And he also took a 
penalty and missed it.” ~ 


Let the word 
go forth : 


“Tins fight is part of an 
odyssey," King said. “It will 
bring the world bade to one 
champion. It's going to be a 
great battle jnst as in the days 
of the fiefdom of England and 
Pm going to dedicate this fight 
to toe Royal Family and the

Witherspoon will be toe cham- 
pion, as in days of old, who will 
go out to fight for toe Queen.. 
This wOl be better than Sir'

'Uneasy lies the head that 
wears toe crown,' let the word 
go forth in the hinterland of 
London, England that we do 


not intend to lose our crown, 
and that we came, and saw,

my champions: Livingstone
