said he could be regarded as

is seen as providing the mis-

weight. 

Sir Geoffrey is proposing a

The chief elements of this 
appear to be that South

‘clears’ 

Savage 

* By Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 
Mrs Wendy Savage, the 
consultant obstetrician sus- 
pended tor 15 months over 
allegations of professional in- 
competence, claimed yester- 
day that she had been 
completely vindicated by an 
independent inqniry. 

Its findings have not been 
published, bat copies of the 
first half we made public by 
Mrs Savage's supporters yes- 
terday after being seat to her 
and the Tower Hamlets health 
authority in east London. 

The allegations of incompe- 
tence concerned the delivery of 
five babies. One was stiff-horn, 
another died eight days after 
being born, bat the others are 
healthy. 

The public inquiry this year 
revealed conflicts between 
Mrs Savage and some male 
colleagues. 

Her sotiritar, Mr Brian 
Raymond, said: “Out of 58 
separate allegations we can 
find only four which tin 
inquiry panel considered valid, 
bat even these did not indode 
levels of incompetence. The 
others are held to be invalid.” 

Mrs Savage said she hoped 
to be reinstated at the London 
Hospital, Whitechapel, next 
monte. 

The health authority said 
yesterday that members were 
being given copies of the 150- 
page section of the report As 
soon as recommendations are 
made, the authority would 
bold a special meeting “very 
quickly”, a spokesman said. 

The first part of tee report 
says:“Wedo not agree that the 
five cases, even if they should 
properly be taken together, 
reveal a consistent aberration 
of ctinkal jadgement 
“We do not agree that 
taking the five cases together, 
Mrs Savage's patients were 
exposed to unnecessary and 
unjustifiable risks. 

“We do not agree that Mrs 
Savage's conduct was, or is, 
not such as meets tee stan- 
dards reasonably required of a

ter and hitherto regarded as 
one of the Prime Minister's 
closest followers, last night 
called on the Government to 
declare its readiness to impose 
sanctions against South Afri- 
ca. " 

Mr Brittan said that without 
the knowledge that Britain 
was prepared to take stronger 
measures against the Pretoria 
regime if necessary. Sir Geof- 
frey Howe’s mission to south- 
ern Africa would be “utterly 
hopeless.” 

Mr Brittan is one of the 
Foreign Secretary’s closest po- 
litical colleagues and his decla- 
ration last night left the Prime 
Minister looking even more 
isolated within her own party 
in her outright opposition to 
sanctions. 

Mr Brittan's intervention 
came as the Prime Minister 
prepared to fly today to Cana- 
da where she is expected to at- 
tempt to win over Mr Brian 
Mulronejr, the Canadian 
Prime Minister, one of the 
seven heads of government 
who win attend next month's 
Commonwealth summit in 
London, to her stand on sanc- 
tions.

Steel, the Liberal leader, asked

warned potential investors in 
British Gas, which is to he 
privatized this autumn, that it 
will be returned to state 
control with shares bought 
back at the original price. 

The sale of British Gas is 
expected to raise around 
£8 billion. 

At : the Newcastle-under- 
Lyme' by-election campaign, 
Mr Stan Onne. shadow 
Energey Secretary, confirmed 
that a future Labour govern- 
ment would use a formula 
similar to that already pro- 
posed for regaining control of 
British Telecom. 

Under the BT “social 
ownership” plan shareholders 
will be given the chance to sell 
their shares back to a Labour 
government at the price at 
which they bought them - 
I30p compared with the cur- 
rent market price of 204p - or 
they will be able to exchange 
their shares for bonds, but lose 
voting rights.

Investors warned 
Labour will buy 
back British Gas 

By Richard Evans and Sheila Gunn 
The Labour Party yesterday Government's biggest privati- 


zation scheme so far, immedi- 
ately raised fears that potential 
investors will be put off from 
buying shares in the new 
company. 

But Mr Peter Walker, Secre- 
tary of State for Energy, last 
night described ■ Mr Orme’s 
proposals as an “absurd 
policy” and insisted the nota- 
tion would not be endangered. 

“The privatization of the 
British Gas will only benefit 
the merchant banks, the stock- 
brokers and the advertising 
agents in the City of London 
and in the financial centres of 
the United States, Japan and 
Europe,” Mr Orme said.

tary of Trade and Industry, 1

assault on Labour’s “social ;

Sterling 

drops 

sharply 

By David Smith 
Economics Correspondent 

The pound fell sharply yes- 
terday, in response to renewed 
oil price weakness. But share 
prices continued to recover. 

Sterling's slide removed re- 
maining City hopes of an early 
base rate reduction. It fell 80 
points to $1.5170 against the 
(foliar and, more significantly, 
more than three pfennigs to 
DM3.2968 against the mark. 
The sterling index declined by 
0.6 points to 74.9. 

The main source for the 
pound’s weakness was lower 
oil prices. Brent crude oil for 
delivery in August was traded 
at $9.70 a barrel, and there 
were reports of some Middle 
East crudes being offered in 
London for $7 a barreL 
Government stocks fell by 
an average of 50p. but share

10 years 
jaifor 
*€rerman 
spy pair 

By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 

An East German mao and 
wife spy team described as 
“intelligent, talented and 
determined” were each jailed 
for 10 years yesterday at the 
Central Criminal Court, for 
workingas undercover intelli- 
gence officers in Britain. 

Reinhard Schulze, aged 33, 
and his wife Sonja, aged 36 , 
were convicted of acts prepa- 
ratory to passing information 
under the 1 920 Official Secrets 
Act Neither gave evidence 
during the triaL 
The court had heard that 
miniature spy equipment was 
hidden in the garden shed of 
their west London home, in- 
cluding “escape kits” with 
false identification papers and 
secret morse code messages 
from East Germany. The cou- 
ple had admitted possessing 
false papers. 

They were caught last Au- 
gust in a Special Branch raid 
summoned by M15 following 
the defection of Hans Tiedge, 
head of West German 
counter-espionage. The police 
were called in to catch the 
Schulzes before they too 
fled. The thrust of the 
Schulzes' work remains 
unknown. 

Sentencing them yesterday, 
the judge told the couple that 
they had been convicted on 
“overwhelming evidence of a 
very serious offence against 
this country and its 
citizens... Whether you have 
communicated secrets and 
caused actual damage to this 
country is not known. 

“If you bad not been detect- 
ed it is certain you would have 
done what you were sent here 
to do and had made elaborate 
plans to do it.” He said that 
although their offences were 
serious they would not be 
sentenced 10 the maximum of 
14 years, but would still each 
receive a heavy sentence of 10 
years for the espionage charge 
and three years concurrent for 
possessing false papers. 

The judge also made . a 
recommendation for their de- 
portation at the end of the 
sentences.

Liner 

warned 

over 

hygiene 

By Angella Johnson 
Southampton port health 
officials say they had warned 
P&O teat their cruise liner, 
Canberra, needed argent im- 
provements Id tee standard of 
hygiene before tee ship set sail 
for its cruise around tire 
Mediterranean which has left 
75 people stnekbyanoldeutt- 
fied sickness. 

They said tee liner should 
not have sailed from tee port 
on July 5 with 1,600 passen- 
gers on board after a health 
inspection revealed “grave 
concern” over hygiene in ca- 
tering and water supply. 

The inspection bad been 
carried out within hours of the 
last cruise which left 153 
people suffering from severe 
cases of vomiting and 
diarrhoea. 

No cause of tee sickness has 
yet been found, but health 
officials said they told P&O 
there was a strong possibility 
the symptoms could reoccur u 
Stamfords were not improved. 

Within 24 hours the ship set 
off on the current enrise 
without making many of the 
improvements recommended 
and with three health officials 
on board. 

A spokesman for the port 
health officials said: “We were 
powerless to do anything to 
prevent the ship leaving port” 
A representative of the Los- 
don-based Communicable 
Disease Centre is carrying out 
surveys to try to isolate the 
fang. Two members of the 
Southampton public beatib 
services are looking at hygiene 
standards. 

Mr lan Gibb, Canberra's 
captain, said the decision to 
sail was taken by the ship's 
owners. He said be has visited 
all the side passengers and 
claimed the Alness was only 
for a brief duration. 

But the BBC's bridge and 
chess expert, Mr Jeremy 
James, who had been taken ill 
on the previous anise, says be 
stiff suffers from the after 
effects of fatigue and trem- 
bling after planting a few 
flowers in his garden. 

Mr Brian McDonald, tee 
cruise director, says be has no 
plans to cut short the trip. He 
said the vast majority of 
passengers did not even know 
of tee problem. 

Macreadie 
goes to law 

Mr John Macreadie, the 
Militant supporter newly 
elected as general secretary of 
the Civil and Public Services 
Association, is taking his own 
union executive to the High 
Court today over its ban on 
him taking up office on 
Monday. 

The CP5A executive yester- 
day reaffirmed its previous 
decision to ban Mr Macreadie 
until complaints of ballot- 
rigging during his election are 
investigated.

THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 1 1 1986 






Wapping plant pickets 
are being paid £50 a 
week, High Court told 


print 

News 


Marches and demonstra- 
tions which led to unlawful 
picketing of the Wapping 
printing plant in east London 
were “planned and 
orchestrated” by the 
unions, counsel for 
International and related 
companies claimed in the 
High Court yesterday. 

Mr Anthony Grabiner, QG 
told Mr Justice Stuart-Smith 
that dismissed printers from 
the Sogat '82 were being paid 
£50 a week by the union for 
four days of picket duty at 


News International and re- 
lated companies are in court 
to try to curb unlawful picket- 
ing at Wapping and other 
offices and distribution depots 
for The Times, The Sunday 
Times, The Sun and News oj 
the World 

Mr Grabiner represents six 
companies: News Group 
Newspapers, Times Newspa- 
pers. News International, 
News International Distribu- 
tion. News International Sup- 
ply Company and London 
Post (Printers), and is acting 
also for Miss Pamela Hamil- 
ton-Dick, an advertising man- 
ager for The Times, who is 
seeking an order restraining 
the use of abusive or intimida- 
tory language and violence 
toward employees. 

Mr Grabiner referred to a 
series of leaflets seeking sup- 
port and giving information 
about demonstrations. One 
leaflet, aimed at the residents 
of Wapping, which was issued 
by the Joint Chapels Liaison 
Committee (JCLQ, showed a 
map marking entry and exit 
roads to Wapping and key 
points on them. 

It criticized union leaders 
for holding rallies as far away 
from Wapping as possible. It 
suggested that if they could 
“take the main gate” they 
could block the movement of 
lorries. 

That would, amount to a 
nuisance and an “unreason- 
able interference” with people 
getting in and out of the 


premises. The leaflet was a 
direct call to commit these 
acts, Mr Grabiner said. 

Thera was a dear link 
between the JCLC and the 
defendant unions, Sogat ’82 
and the National Graphical 
Association, he said. 

The unions and their offi- 
cials denied that a bus near the 
Wapping plant was a centre 
for organizing pickets. They 
daimed the top deck was an 
office for stewards, housing an 
essential telephone Link to the 
police, and the lower deck was 
a rest area for pickets. 

But Mr Grabiner produced 
an extract from a BBC inter- 
view with Mr Christopher 
Robbins, a Sogat official, in 


The Government is consid- 
ering legal action over librar- 
ies which are banning 
newspapers published by 
News International, Lord 
Bebtead. deputy Leader of the 
Lords, disclosed yesterday. 

He said that Mr Richard 
Luce, Minister for the Arts, 
was taking legal advice. 


which he said it was “virtually 
an operations centra”. 

Mr Grabiner said that vio- 
lence had occurred outside the 
plant for a long period of time. 
Trouble was an obvious con- 
sequence of demonstrations, 
which the unions should have 
seen from the outset, or at 
(east it should have become 
obvious very soon after. But 
he was not saying they had 
organized the violence. 

In a sworn statement, Mr 
Bruce Matthews, managing 
director of News Internation- 
al. said that talks with the 
unions had been going on 
since February, and he 
thought the injunction pro- 
ceedings might “embitter” the 
talks. 

He said that after a final 
offer from Mr Rupert Mur- 
doch was rejected by the 
unions last May, even though 
their leaders thought it “very 
generous”, it was made clear 
that the dispute would be 


stepped up and he feared it 
would mean an increase in 
mass picketing. 

Earlier, the judge rejected 
an application .by Mr Bill 
Freeman, acting chairman of 
Sogat's London machine 
branch, who is said to be the 
picket co-ordinator, to pre- 
vent tire use of newspaper 
reports in affidavits, allegedly 
reporting comments by him. 

Tire judge said that the 
reporters in question could 
easily be brought to court to 
support their stories. ‘ 

Miss Brenda Dean, general 
secretary of Sogat '82, denied 
in a sworn statement that the 
union had instigated insults or 
inti nidation of employees 

It was “hardly surprising” 
that people were demonstrat- 
ing outside the Wapping plant, 
she said. But all Sogat demon- 
strations were organized after 
consultation with the police. 

She said thai she had fre- 
quently spoken out against 
violence. Although she had 
refiised a request to curb 
picket numbers, she had speci- 
fied that those who came 
along should follow the in- 
structions of stewards who 
bad done an excellent job, for 
which they bad been praised 
by tire police and Home 
Office. 

The bearing continues to- 
day. 

• Police offered no evidence 
against Mr Stephen Clarke, 
aged 37, a compositor of 
Hobart Road, Cambridge, at 
Thames Magistrates' Court in 
east London yesterday after he 
denied obstructing the high- 
way outside the Wapping 
plant on June 28. The charge 
was dismissed and Mr Clarice 
was bound over to keep the 
peace for a year in the sum of 
£50. 

Gary Smart, aged 32, of 
Carlton Road. Hartford, Kent, 
was yesterday remanded on 
unconditional bail until July 
31 by the court, charged with 
trying to set fire to wire 
fencing around the Wapping 
plant on June 28. 



Landlord 
couple ‘get 
£750,000 
in grants’ 


By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

A husband-and-wife team 
of private landlords in south 
Manchester is collecting 
£7,700 a week in rates and 
rents paid by the state for a 
dozen properties by exploiting 
the housing benefits regula- 
tions, it was daimed yester- 
day. 

They are getting an average 
£140 a week for one and two- 
bedroom flats and have also 
been given £750,000 in coun- 
cil improvement grants. 

Yesterday, the arrange- 
ments were denounced as a 
**rip ofT by Mrs Audrey 
Jones. Liberal group leader m 
Manchester. 

The allegation comes in the 
wake of a campaign by a group 
of Alliance MPs led by Mr 
David Alton, Liberal chief 
whip and member for Mossley 
Hill, Liverpool, to make the 
Government bring tenancies 
for the unemployed within the 
scope of the fair rant 
legislation. 

Mr Alton says the lack of a 
ceiling on payments to land- 
lords of tenancies occupied-by 
people receiving bousing ben- 
efit means that homelessness 
has become a “boom, industry 

The total biU for rent aid 
rates subsidies for the year 
ended March 31- was 
£4.6 billion.

Morale talk after 
Stalker departure 


By Peter Davenport 

Mr James Anderton. the 
Chief Constable of Greater 
Manchester, has called an 
uraent meeting of all his senior 
officers today to discuss mo- 
rale after the suspension of Mr 
John Stalker, his deputy. 

Officers from the rank of 
superintendent up have been 
summoned to the conference 
at police headquarters after 
reports that morale has been 
badly affected by the investi- 
gation into Mr Stalker. 

Mr Anderton is expected to 
brief his officers on some of 
the background to the S talker 
case. 

Mr Stalker has been sus- 
pended while the police, under 
the leadership of Mr Colin 
Sampson, Chief Constable of 
West Yorkshire, investigate 
allegations that he had associ- 
ated with “known criminals”. 

They centre on his long 


friendship with Mr Taylor. 

Mr Taylor, who has no 
criminal record, is the subject 
of a separate police investiga- 
tion in Manchester and a 
progress file on the inquiry is 
now with the Fraud Division 
of the Director of Public 
Prosecutions. 

Yesterday leaders of the 
Greater Manchester Police 
Authority met Mr Giles Shaw, 
the Minister of State at the 
Home Office, for 45 minuters 
to express their concern that 
the investigation, now seven 
weeks old. should be conclud- 
ed as speedily as possible. 

They are also thought to 
have attempted to have Mr 
Sampson removed from the 
investigation into an alleged 
shoot-to-ki!I policy operated 
by the Royal Ulster Constabu- 
lary, which he took over from 
Mr Stalker. 


Nalgo votes on strikes 


Up to 500,000 white-collar 
local authority workers are to 
be asked to vote in favour of a 
ballot on strikes after the 
breakdown of pay talks 
yesterday. 

The national ballot was 
called by the National and 
Local Government Officers 
Association (Nalgo) after the 
employers' refused to increase 
a 5.96 per cent pay offer. 

The union had claimed 
12 per cent, or £900 a year, 
whichever was the greater, in 


what it said was an attempt to 
help to alleviate low pay 

The ballot will run from 
July 28 to September 4. Mem- 
bers will be asked if they are 
willing to strike for a maxi- 
mum of three days in any 
four-week period. The union, 
which last week unanimously 
rejected the pay offer, has 
planned a series of short 
strikes. 

Local government employ- 
ers said yesterday that no 
more money was available. 


‘Prison 

beating’ 

verdict 


An open verdict was record- 
ed by an inquest jury yester- 
day on Mark Hogg, who died 
after being recaptured follow- 


he 27-day inquest, 
Britain's longest, was told that 
Hogg was kicked and punched 
by police in Yeovil and by 
prison officers in Exeter. 

The jury foreman said: “We 
find no definite lack of care 
shown to Mark Hogg but feel 
certain aspects of his care 
while in custody reduced the 
chance of his illness being 
detected at an earlier stage.” 

The corner. Dr Richard van 
Op pen. said the words were 
unacceptable and the jury 
returned again before deckling 
Hogg died of renal failure and 
heart complications due to 
unknown causes. 


The new Rover 800 execu- 
tive saloon wfll be even scarcer 
than hs meagre stock 

of L500 cars suggests. Last 
night Austin Rover factories 
dosed for a two-week summer 
holiday. 

However, the company de- 
nied that it had blundered in 
choosing the day before the 
annual shutdown to launch a 
car that is considered crucial 
to its recovery plans. 

Mr Peter Johnson, Austin 
Rover sales director, said: 
“The timing of the launch was 
dictated by the market We 
had to give the 800 maxunmn 
exposure before the August 
boom begins. . 

“We may not have a lot of 
800s to sell Id August, but the 
enormous interest it has creat- 
ed will generate a lot more 
traffic through our showrooms 
and must increase sales of 
other models.” 


Rival dealers suggested that 
Austin Rover was deliberately 
keeping the 800 scarce in its 
first few months to create 
demand and discourage deal- 
ers from selling it at cut prices 
for quick sales. 

One Ford dealer said: “It is 
a common practice with most 
new cars and particularly ex- 
pensive ones. 

“When motorists learn that 
they wfll have to wait months 
for a newly launched car they 
are tempted to place orders 
early to get a good place in the 
queue. They are also prepared 
to pay the full retail price for 
it*? 

Some Austin Rover dealers 
expressed doubts about the 
high prices of the top two 
models, £15£70 for the 825i 
and £18^00 for the Sterling. 
‘‘That is taking us into Jaguar 
and Mercedes territory with a 


l" one Midland 


vengeance, 
dealer said. 

Austin Rover announced ad- 
vance orders for 1,200 cars, 
worth about £22 million. It 
said that most were for the 
more expensive versions, for 
use by company chairmen and 
chief executives. 

In the Commons, Mrs Mar- 
garet Thatcher, who test drove 
the car outside 10 Downing 
Street before the launch, said: 
“It is an excellent car and a 
superb design. I hope h will 
sell well and I can certainly 
recommend the bine one I 
drove this morning.” 

" She said: “The car is a top- 
class design and has a super 
engine. Every attention is 
being given to every detaiL It 
wi ll als o have special extra 
provision made for export to 
the United States. We wish It 
welL I have great faith in the 
car.”

Caulfield, who owns nine 
properties in Denham- Drive, 
Newsham Park, Liverpool 
He said be received £524 *

been controlled 
Mr GJyn Jones, a councillor 
on Clywd council in Wales, 
told Mr Alton that he had 
been informed that landlords 
are claiming benefits for ten- 
ants who have vacated their 
property.

SMITH# 


By Richard Ford 

The security forces in 
Northern Ireland tomorrow 
face one of their biggest tests 
since the signing of the Anglo- 
Irish Agreement when thou- 
sands of Orange men parade 
against a background of ter- 
rorist murder and confronta- 
tion threats. 

The parades take place as 
tension rises with the Provi- 
sional IRA killing three mem- 
bers of the security forces 
within 24 hours.

lice Constable John McVitty. 
aged 46, took place in Co

Injury 
claims by 
parents 


Five cases of alleged assault 
on children by teachers have 
been submitted to the Crimi- 
nal Injuries Compensation 
Board by parents encouraged 
by an unprecedented award to 
a Nottinghamshire schoolboy 
earlier tins year. 

Supported by the Society of 
Teachers Opposed to Physical 
Punishment the parents are 
seeking redress after the police 
refused to prosecute in four 
out of the five cases. In the 
fifth, the prosecution failed. 

The board made an interim 
award of £200 in trust Stephen 
McKevin. aged 15. who suf- 
fered a swollen windpipe after 
an alleged assault. 

Miss Julie Macfariane, re- 
search co-ordinator of 
STOPP. said: "Stephen 
McKevitt's successful applica- 
tion has opened up a new 
channel of redress for parents 
and children.” 


Decision 
day for 
Birkbeck 


Birkbeck College, London, 
whose future is threatened by 
a proposed cut in funding of 
30 per cent over- foar years, 
was told by London University 
yesterday that it could not 
provide a financial safety net 
(Our Education Correspon- 
dent writes). 

The news came on the day 
that the University Grants 
Committee was reconsidering 
the formula for funding the 
part-time students at 
Birkbeck. 

The committee refused to 
disclose its decision but the 
information is to be released 
today at the same time as 
London University is told. 

Professor Roderick Flood, 
chairman of Birk beck's cam- 
paign committee, said: “In 
cash terms Birkbeck faces a 
ait which is 11 times more 
severe than the worse applied 
to any other university.”

to break. 

- Experts detected a call sign 
in the blocks of numerals, 
tapped out five figures at a 
lime. They were dearly in- 
structions to agents in situ but 
where were they? 

- The answer came on a 
summer’s evening last year 
when Special Branch officers 
raided a suburban terraced 
house and arrested Remhard 
and Sonja Schulze, who were 
sentenced yesterday as under- 
cover agents. 

-- The Schulzes, recipients of 
the coded radio messages, 
may have been part of an East 
German espionage operation 
using the most modern com- 
puterized communications to 
pass back messages. ' 

. The arrests came before 
others in the ring were found 
or East German plans 
matured. 

The source which identified 
the Schulzes has not been 
disclosed but is thought to be a 
defector from eastern Europe 
or a western agent on the other 
side of the Berlin Wall. 

1. Under surveillance the cou- 
ple might have disclosed a 
great deal but an espionage 
panic on both sides of the 
Berlin Wall last August forced 
MIS to act quickly. 

1 At any moment the 
Schulzes might destroy evi- 
dence and flee. 


Heathrow AirporLApinrentiy 
American, they were, in fact, 
thought to have been East 
European and at the nub of a 
ring passing naval secrets to 
the Soviet Union. 

Yet no.Lonsdale, the master 
Russian spy of the Portland 
ring, nor a Houghton or Gee, 
the Civil Servants who passed 
on information, have been 
found this time. 

But two-thirds of a “one- 
time pad”, used for encoding 
or decoding messages, had 
been used up. The used pages 
covered SO blocks of numerals 
used for code. Recent mes- 
sages sent from East Germa- 
ny, overheard by GCHQ, were 
found still in code in the 
Schulzes' home. 

The Schulzes collected a 
series of maps and informa- 
tion, such as the flight paths 
for Heathrow, Stanstead, Lu- 
ton, Gatwick and Manchester 
airports. There was also an 
interest in routes and a succes- 
sion of Home Counties, Mid- 
lands and North-western 
towns which later suggested 
some strategic meaning to the 
police and MIS. 

But no transmitter was 
found with the Schulzes. 
Reinhard Schulze did have a 
desk-top computer and one 
senior police source has sug- 
gested that East German oper- 
ations in Britain have 
included the use of a comput-

year after he disappeared 
abroad. 

Special Brandi moved m 
and arrested the Schulzes as 
the first Soviet bloc “illegals”, 
intelligence officers living as 
citizens of a target country, 
Britain, since the Portland spy 
ring of 1961. Not surprisingly

MI5 learnt about the 
Schulzes through information 
from West Germany. The 
plan may have been to allow 
the Schulzes time to lead their 
watchers to other spies until 
the net was foil, but events in 
West Germany forced the 
Security Service’s hand.

On August 19, last year, 
Hans Tiedge, the top West 
German rounter-mtelugenee 
officer, defected to East Ger- 
many. In the days that fol- 
lowed there were arrests in 
West and East Germany, Swit- 
zerland and London. 

Shortly after reatime on 
August 23, the day after 
Tiedge’s defection became 
public, a team of Branch 
officers called together that 
day after an MI5 briefing, 
raided 249 Waye Avenue, 
Hounslow, the terraced house 
rented by the Schulzes. 

It was the end ofa long-term 
undercover operation for 
which the East German espio- 
nage service, the HVA, has 
grown renowned under the 
leadership of Markus Wolf, j 
who created the service. 

Reinhard Schulze was given 
the name of Bryan Waldemar 
Strunze, who was roughly his 
age, born in Britain after the 
war with an English mother 
and a German father. 

Schulze came to Britain in I 
1980 using a West German 
passport but equipped with 
papers which supported his 
identity as Strunze. . 

A student of interior design, 
he went to live in a flat in 
1 Pownall Gardens. Hounslow, 
l west London, owned by Mr 

> and Mrs Albert Ferris. They 
grew to like their tenant, even 

> to fret at how quiet a life he 
led. 

1 In spite of being a student 
; with little money, be paid his 

- rent well in advance in cash 

- and installed a telephone in 

5 his flat „ , , 

Much of the time Schulze 
1- was studying. He took a 
y course in interior and kitchen 
design by post, completing the 
e course and passing with merit 
n in 18 months, instead of the 
e normal two years. The school 
n was so impressed that they 
ir recommended him to a Kings- 
il ton company looking for a 
n designer and salesman in 
e 1983. 

He had now been joined in 
Britain by his wife. The couple 
said they had met while they 
were both on holiday in 
Ireland the year before. 

Sonja Schulze used the Aus- 
trian name of Ilona Hammer 
and enrolled at a language 
school for a three-month 
course in advanced English in 
1983. 

She then went on to a 
translators' course before 
starting work in the summer 
of, 1985. By now the couple 
had married. 

In the summer of 1985 
Schulze changed jobs after an 
arguement about overtime 
pay. His new compa ny 
thought he was extremely 
talented, with the potential to 
earn up to £50,000 a year. 

It all came to an end at 
Paddington Green police sta- 
tion after the arrests. Schulze s 
“legend”, false story, was 
flawed. He did not know that 
the real Bryan Strunze had a 
half-brother living in Britain 
or other simple details of the 
_e family.

Fatal airline accidents 
dropped sharply in the first 
half of this year after 1985 s 
horrific record, according to 
statistics from Flight Interna- 
tional magazine. 

Only 12 fatal accidents were 
reported, equal to the record 
low figure of 1984, and com- 
pared with 21 in the first half 
of last year. 

The number of fatalities, 
340, was dramatically down 
on last year's 913, and nearly 
half occurred in a single crash 
when a Mexican Boeing 727 
caught fire and hit high 
ground, killing L58.

PM declares argument 
against economic and 
punitive sanctions won 


SOUTH AFRICA 


Mrs Margaret Thatcher, the 

Prime Minister, again called 
during Commons question time 
for an end to violence in South 
Africa and a search for a 
peaceful solution. She said she 
hoped the whole House would 
wish Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, weH in his 
great endeavour. 

He added that she thought the 
agrument against punitive eco- 
nomic saniions bad been won. 
Sir John Biggs-Dansoo (Epping 

Forest, O had asked for an 
assurance that the Government 
would not countenance force 
against South Africa. 


Mr David Steel, Leader of the 
Liberal Party: Looking back on 
the whirlwind of interviews the 
Prime Minister has given over 
the last 48 hours, of which result 
is she most proud: the paean of 
praise showered on her by 
Pretoria State Radio, the 
humiliation of the Foreign Sec- 
retary in Zambia, or the da ma g e 
to the Commonwealth Gaines 
in Edinburgh? 

Mrs Thatcher 1 think foe 
argument against general eco- 
nomic sanctions and punitive 
economic sanctions has been 


majority of British people reject 
foe use of force, wish to have a 
suspension of violence, wish to 
have a peaceful solution and 
support the Foreign Secretary in 
his mission. 

Mr Raymond PoweH (Ogmore, 
Lab): The Prime Minister can 
get into a fit. about sanctions 
against South Africa, but has she 


considered bow many people 

out of work? in my 


The logic (he went on) of the 
Leader of the 


Jtion’s ad- 
vocacy of mandatory United 
Nations sanctions, according to 
Mr Denis Healey, is that we 
must be prepared for a naval 
action against South Africa. 
That was the ex-minister who 
wanted to arm the South Af- 
rican navy. 

Mrs Thatcher: This Govern- 
ment is not talking about the use 
of force in connection with 
apartheid. Rather are we calling 
for a suspension of violence on 
ail sides and seeking a peaceful 
solution. 

Mr Jeremy Hanley (Richmond 
and Barnes, C): Perhaps the 
House is losing sight of the 
positive steps the Government 
is taking to help blacks in South 
Africa and those living m the 
frontline states. Would she take 
this opportunity to remind us? 
Mrs Thatcher. At the recent 
European Community heads of 
government meeting we agreed 
to take positive measures to 
help the blacks in South Africa 
and allocated a further £15 
million over foe next five yean 
for that purpose in addition to 
the £22 million we are already 
spending. 

With regard to aid to southern 
Africa, last year we gave aid of 
some £70 million to Zimbabwe. 
Zambia. Mozambique. Lesotho 
and Swaziland. 



she has put 
constituency ber Government 
has closed five collieries, put 
5,000 miners out of work, and 
since foe miners' strike hun- 
dreds of miners have been put 

out of work as a result of the tact 


that coal is being imported from 
South Africa, what is she and 


Steel: Which achievement is 
she most proud of? 
won. I notice that The Guardian 
said today: “Economic sanc- 
tions will not bring South Africa 
to its knees: they win mean that 
black children starve; the 
desolation of foe Pretoria econ- 
omy would be a tragedy for all 
Africa." That is true. Is that 
what he wants? 

Mr David Wionick (Walsall 
North, Lab): Those of us who 
are very much opposed to her 
policy on South Africa hope 
nonetheless that foe Common- 
wealth leaders when they meet 
will bear in mind that the Prime 
Minister does not represent foe 
majority of British opinion and 
moreover the days of her 
wretched administration are 
coming to an end. (Conser- 
vative protests) 

Mrs Thatcher: I am afraid he is 
guilty of wishful thinking on the 
latter point. The overwhelming 


her government going to do to 
stop that? 

Mrs Thatcher: Judging by the 
drift of his question he is against 
causing further unemployment 
by imposing sanctions on South 
Africa. To impose sanctions on 
South Africa would cause fur- 
ther unemployment here. 

•It would be a tragedy if the 
African nations were to think 
the British people supported the 
Government's policy on South 
Africa, Mr Harry Ewing 
(Falkirk East, Lab) said when he 
unsuccessfully sought an 
emergency debate on the threat 
to the Commonwealth Games 
in Edinburgh. 

He said many believed foe 
withdrawal of Nigeria and 
Ghana from the games, which 
was likely to be followed by 
other African states in foe 
Commonwealth,- was the 
beginning of the breakup of the 
Commonwealth. A debate

Mr Biffen said it was an

Initially this was a matter for

he would certainly draw it to foe

UK growing more of its own food 


AGRICULTURE 


About 60 per cent of Britain's 
food supply was home produced 
in 1985, compared with 50 per 
cent in 1973 when the United 


Kingdom joined foe Common 
That 


Market. That represented a 
considerable achievement for 
the agriculture industry, Mrs 
Peggy Fenner, Parliamentary 
Secretary for Agriculture, Fish- 
eries and Food, said during 
question time in the Commons. 

She added that self-suf- 
ficiency in indigenous foods — 
those which could be produced 
commercially in the United 
Kingdom — had increased from 


62 per cent m 1973 to 80 per 
cent in 1985. 

Mr David Knox (Staffordshire 
Moorlands. C) said that if foe 
figures were to be maintained, 
foe Government must continue 
to give strong support to British 
agriculture, especially the live- 
stock sector. 

Mrs Fenner said the figures 
showed that foe Government 
was supporting foe farming 
community. 

Mr Dennis Cana van (Falkirk 
West. Lab) said it was about 
time foe Government took ac- 
tion against South African food. 
Sanctions of that nature would 
help home food producers as 
well as helping to end the evil 
regime in South Africa. 


Mis Fenner said he should not 
let his ideology persuade him 
that they could grow citrus fruits 
in this country. 


r^Philip^Oppenbeini (Amber 


Mr 

Valley. C) said foe British 
agricultural industry's share of 
the home food market had 
slipped bade since foe introduc- 
tion of milk quotas, to the 
benefit of foe Dutch and foe. 
French. 


Mrs Fenner said domestic but- 
ter production had increased 
from 57 per cent in 1980 to 64 
percent in 1985. There had been 
a slight decrease in cheese from 
70 per cent to 67 per cent which 
reflected cheese imports and the 
range of choice. 


The need for adequate food 
labelling in shops was expressed 
by MPs daring Commons ques- 
tion time exchanges. 

Mr Michael Meadowcroft 
(Leeds West, L) said some MPS 
were worried that foe attitude on 
food labelling did net go for 
enough. Instructions should be 
issued to ensure that labelling 
included a warn in g that same 
constituents were possibly toxic. 
Mrs Peggy Fenner, Par- 


liamentary Secretary, Ministry 
ries and 


of Agriculture, Fisheries 
Food, said she had abided by a 
strict consultation pattern re- 
quired in legislation. Govern- 
ment proposals were issued on 
February 13. Same 700 in- 
terested parties had been con- 
tacted ami their comments were 
awaited. 

Mr Simon Coombs (Swindon, 
O asked Mrs Fenner how 
consumers could make the right 
choice in the absence of man- 
datory labelling for sugar. 

Mrs Fenner told him that sugars 
already had to be indicated In 
ingredient listings. 

The Committee on Medical 
Aspects of Food was to set np a 
panel to examine the effect of 
sugars in the diet and the 
Government would consider the 
impficatioos of any snch report. 
Mr Michael McNair-Wilson 
(Newbury, C) asked it Mrs 
Fenner was satisfied with the 
labelling on so-called health 
foods. Were the descriptions on 
these labels substantiated by 
any scientific research? Had not 
the time come for approved 
definitions in which the Min- 
istry would have some say? 

Mrs Fenner said those foods did 
have to comply with labelling 
requirements. For example; 
foods purporting to aid slimming 
had to be labelled very carefully. 
But she would consider any 
instances which worried Mr 
McNair-Wilson. 

Mr Donald Stewart (Western 
Isles, SNP) said some fast food 
merchants had taken umbrage 
at foe slight advances already 
made. Cartons containing food 
should have an accurate note of 
the contents. 

Mrs Fenner said regulations 
were introduced in 1984 and 
came folly into operation on July 
1. 


Advice sought on library censorship 


WAPPING DISPUTE 


how they reconciled their action 
with their duties under the Act, 


The Minister for the Arts, Mr 
Richard Luce, is taking legal 
advice on whether action can oe 
taken against local authorities 
which have withdrawn news- 
papers published by News Inter- 
national from public libraries. 
Lord Bebtead, Deputy Leader 
of the House of Lords, stated. 
He was being questioned by 

Lord Harris of Greenwich (SDP) 
about the action the Govern- 
ment was taking under the 
Public Libraries and Museums 
Act 1964 against the authorities. 
Lord Bebtead said the Minister 
for the Arts had used the powers 
under the Act to write to foe 20 
library authorities about which 
he had received complaints. He 
had asked them whether they 
had withdrawn News Inter- 
national newspapers and, if so. 


The replies are coming in. (be 
went on) and Mir Luce is 
considering, in the fight of those 
replies, what further action to 
take. 

Lord Hams of Greenwich: 
Some of foe local authorities 
have already passed resolutions 
confirming their previous de- 
rision and in the fight of this 
totalitarian development, is it 
not time the Government acted 
where it is dear these local 
authorities intend to continue to 
defy the law. 

Lord Bebtead: We are taking 
legal advice in order to decide 
on the next steps. There is no 
question about it, some of the 
replies the minister has received 
raise questions about which we 
have to take legal advice before 
we can decide what to do. 

Lord Boyd-Garpenter (C): Is it 
not intolerable that public li- 


braries supported by public 
funds should practice censor- 
ship of the press in order to 
support ope side or another in 
an industrial dispute? 

Lord Bebtead: l agree h is 
essential that public libraries 
should impartially maintain foe 
public's Tight of access to the 
mam publications of news and 
information. We have to look at 
the powers, under the Act-' That 
i& what we are doing. 

Lord Fletcher (Lab); This is 
generally regarded as a flagrant 
breach by these local authorities 
of their duties under foe Act. 
Lady Barke, for foe Opposition: 
The Labour Party has made 
clear that it consider? this 
undesirable censorship by the 
local authorities. 

Lord Harris of GreeswfcluThe 
object of my question was to 
give the minister the opportu- 
nity of saying firmly and un- 
equivocally that ■ the 
Government is opposed to 


censorship in ■. ■public 
libraries. We hope we wffl-getq 
statement before .foe summer 
recess onwhaMhe Government

Lord Bdsteafo: The; Govern- 
ment strongly, disapproves of 
anything that smacks of political 
censorship. We ndwbave ta see

because at that lime the Euro- 
pean Parliament had not 
reached a decision upon it.

that it was not possible for them 
to discuss foe transfer of British 
taxpayers' money to another 
body whose budget did not

Mr Peter Shore, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on House of 
Commons affairs, said It was a 
scandal that MPs should be 
asked to approve an estimate of 
£930 million in relation to a 
budget which had not yet been 
formally agreed. 

Mr Neil Kianock. Leader of foe 
Opposition, said he would have

that foe time of the debate was 
such as to make it one of 
substance instead of

Mr Edward Taylor (Southend

He said foe points of order

favour of his amendment If 
there was no budget at the

overwhelming case . for

He said it was very 
unfortunate that the 
Government and in particular 
the Prime Minister, who took 
such a dear and forthright 
attitude on other issues; were 
feiling to do so where control of 
public expenditure in relation to 
the EEC was concerned. 

We are right (be went on) to 
be members of foe Community, 
but on this occasion I feel grave 
disquiet at the way in which it is 
going, particularly over its 
financial affairs. 

The purpose of the 
amendment was simply to 
prevent the. payment in

payment, of the sums involved. 

He hoped the Government 
would come to the House at the 
earliest moment when any hard

explain what was going on in

Plea for extension of 


legal aid to cover 


dispute arbitration 


By Frances Gibb, Legal Afiairs Correspondent 


Lord Hailsbam of St Mary- 
lebone, the Lord Chancellor, 
is being urged by the Char- 
tered Institute of Arbitrators 
to extend legal aid so that it 
covers the settling of disputes 
by arbitration. 

The institute says that arbi- 
tration. whereby disputes can 
be resolved more quickly, 
cheaply and simply than by 
the conventional courtroom 
method, could substantially 
ease the pressure on the 
courts. 

At the moment many liti- 
gants are forced to go to court 
to resolve disputes because 


that is foe only way they win 


qualify for legal aic 

There are an estimated 
10.000 arbitrations in London 
a year. They are mostly con- 
fined to building, shipping 
and commodity disputes. 

Yesterday Mr John Sims, 
spokesman for the institute, 
said that extending legal aid to 
arbitration would open up a 
faster and more flexible way to 
settle disputes to many more 
people. It would also siphon 
off cases from the overloaded 
court svsiem. 


The Master of the Rolls, Sir 
John Donaldson, recently 
urged more use of arbitration 
in a construction dispute that 
had taken two years to come 
to court. 

The institute has written to 
the Lord Chancellor urging 
legal aid for arbitration in the 
wake of the recent report by a 
team of government officials 
which proposes changes to foe 
legal-aid scheme, including 
extending legal * aid for 
tribunals. 

The move coincides with 
renewed interest in arbitra- 
tion. Last month an arbitra- 
tion scheme was launched by 
the Common Law Bar Associ- 
ation. under which individ- 
uals can apply to have a 
specialist barrister or retired 
judge appointed as an arbitra- 
tor. 

The institute also has a 
panel of some 300 - mostly 


Donaldson and Lord Justice 
Ken. 


As well as appointing arbi- 
trators on request and provid- 
ing hearing rooms, the 
institute administers several 
arbitration schemes for claims 
arising from complaints in 
specific fields, such as on 
solicitors' negligence, British 
RaiL the Post Office, British 
Telecom, the Association of 
British Travel Agents and foe 
National House Building 
Council Other schemes are in 
the pipeline. 

Mr Sims said: “Even taking 
into account the cost of the 
arbitrator, the savings com- 
pared with foe conventional 
courtroom hearing can be 
substantial”

s. They a

Time could be saved be- 
cause the arbitrator would be 
an expert in the field of foe 
dispute and because arbitra- 
tions were free from the 
procedural constraints of con- 
ventional hearings. A com- 
plainant need not use a lawyer 
to present his case, and the 
costs of the other party to foe 
dispute would not be incurred. 


£l,400m for Scots tourism 



Science report 


A creature 


in a class 


of its own 


By Dorothy Bonn 


By a Staff Reporter 

Tourism earned Scotland 
more than £1,400 million last 
year, the wettest and coldest 
year this century, the Scottish 
tourist Board said yesterday. 

But the figure showed no 
increase on the year before and 
highlighted the danger of de- 
pending too much on good 
weather, foe board said in its 


annual report for 1985, pub- 
lished yesterday. 

British residents made more 
Bran 12 million trips to Scot- 
land, spending £1,115 million. 
Overseas visitors spent £324 
million. 

“The trading hopes for 1986 
have been dampened by con- 
cerns about international ter- 
rorism and foe knock-on effect 
of a wet 1985," Mr Alan 


Devereux. foe chairman of the 
board, said. 

“Nevertheless, the medium- 
terra prospects for Scottish 
tourism have never been 
brighter.” 

Swi t iaml had still to benefit 
from cheaper oil, bringing 
lower air fares, better quality 
holidays, and more pro motio n 
to woo first-time British 
visitors.

Complicated wiring plans 
pose no problems for Jayne 
Pole, who was named yester-

apprentice. Jayne, aged 18, 
from Stoke Pages, Bucking- 
hamshire, faced stiff compe- 
tition from 1,500 male and 
12 female counterparts to 
become the first girl to win 


the award since it began 12 
years ago.

Three zoologists exploring 
the sea off the coast of New 
Zealand have found a new 
species of echinoderm, the 
large group iff animals which 
indades starfish and sea ur- 
chins. So different is it from 
known forms that the newcom- 
er has been given a class of its 
own, Coutxntricycloiddea. 

Nine specimens of the echi- 
noderm, measuring between 
2 mm and 8 mm across, 
emerged from a piece of wood 
dredged up from a depth of 
more than 1,000 metres. The 
animals had a disc-shaped 
body bearing a fringe of spines 
resembling foe petals of a 
daisy. 

They were given foe name 
Xylopltzx mernsifonms. The 
xyloplax lacks the starfish's 
five arms, but Its almost 
circular body shows the rudi- 
ments of a pentagonal struc- 
ture. Its dorsal surface is 
covered with small plates, pins 
five laiger ones, symmetrically 
arranged. 

It can move by its tube feet, 
which are given rigidity by 
pressure from the animal 's 
hydrostatic skeleton, the water 
vascular system. This system 
consists of two concentric ca- 
nals attached to each other at 
five equally spaced points. 

But the zoologists, Frauds 
Rowe, Alan Baker and Helen 
Clark, of the National Muse- 
um of New Zealand who made 
foe discovery, believe that foe 
tiny creature is more often 
carried, parachute fashion, by 
water currents. 

Its most unusual feature is 
that it has no mouth or gut Its 
under-surface is covered by a 
thin membrane, which: is prob- 
ably absorptive.

Newcastle by-election 


Steel challenged 
on CND member 


By Sheila Gurm, Political Staff 


Mr John Butcher, a junior 
trade minister, accused the 
Alliance parties yesterday of 
sabotaging their own 
candidate's campaign in the 
Newcastle-under-Lyme by- 
election because of his- mem- 
bership of the Campaign for 
Nuclear Disarmament. 


• Do you know the name of 
your MP? 

• Does it make any difference 
to your voting intentions that 
Llin Golding Is John 
Golding's wife? 

• Does it make any difference 
that she is a woman? 


. The election of Mr Alan 
Thomas, while a fervent 
unilateralist and anii-Naio, 
would be an embarrassment 
to foe Alliance, he said. 

**I wonder it m typical 
Liberal fashion, the party is 
not giving this candidate their 
full support They have sent 
generals and key administra- 
tors but they are not sending 
the troops. I think it is a pretty 
gutless way of sabotaging their 
candidate. 


• When are you taking your 
holidays? ' 

Mr Andy EUis, the Liberal's 
election agent, said: “On these 
questions it must be a Labour 
poll. Llin Golding says she 
does not know about it Is that 
credible? 


“Ins a matter for Mr David 
Steel's reputation whether he' 
is going to tolerate this kind of 
anarchy where local candi- 
dates can do what they like 
locally and not be disciplined 
nationally." 

With the election next 
Thursday, and Mrs Llin Gol- 
ding, the right-wing Labour 
candidate looking increasingly 
confident of taking over her 
husband's seat, it was a day 
filled with smears and 
innuendos.

On 


mental aircraft project which 
felled could, and should have, 
been avoided, the Commons 
Public Accounts Committee 
said yesterday. 

But the Northern Ireland 
Department of Commerce al- 
lowed its enthusiasm for the 
L ®*f, Pw ? scheme, and the 
substantial employment pros- 
pects, to blunt its perception 
of the high risks involved. 

T*he all-party committee. 
Parliament's public spending 
watchdog, said that the Lear 
Fan project had many of the 
features of the disastrous 
DeLorean car fiasco, which 
was also backed by the depart- 


o ught to have persuaded the 
department not to assist the 
project. 

After the decision had been 
taken by ministers in Febru- 
ary 1980 to back the scheme, 
officials did not carry out an 
adequate financial appraisal 
of the project. - 

They also failed “to accord 
public fUnds at least the same 
level of protection as that 
provided for the private 
investors' funds" when fur- 
ther cash support was sought a 
year later.

Pledge on 
subliminal 
TV fight 

Mr Norris McWhirter 
pledged yesterday to continue 
his battle against the trans- 
mission of subliminal Images 
on television, after his bid to 
brine a private prosecution 
against the Independent 
Broadcasting Authority failed 
in the House of Lords. 

A committee of Law Lords, 
-headed by Lord Keith of 
Kinkel, retimed to allow Mr 
McWhirter to aigne bis case 
in the Honse of Lords because 
his petition for leave to appeal 
.was we day late. 

■ , Mr McWhirter, co-foander 
-of The Guinness _ Book of 
Records, had alleged^ that a 
“grotesque and ridkaling" im- 
age of his face superimposed 
above the body of a naked 
woman, had been flasbei ou i 
-screen during the satirical i 
Spitting Image programme. 

Last January, the High 
Court quashed his private ! 
summons issued by i 
Horseferry Road Magistrates 
7 Court, sotrth- west London, and 
: banned all further proceedings 
1 on the ground that the sum- 
mons disclosed no offence 
known in law. 

Mr Frauds Bennion, coun- 
sel for Mr McWhirter, told 
the law Lords yesterday that 
the petition had been out of 
"time because of a default by 
officers of the High Court. 

- But Lord Keith said that 
although the Law Lords had a 
“great deal of sympathy", they 
“ had no power to dispense with 
the strict tune limits laid down 
for prosecution appeals. 

Mr McWhirter said after- 
wards: “This is not the end of 
the road — there will be Other 
I know of six others.

Easing of 
sheep 
restraints 

The Commons were told at 
Question Time yesterday that 
more areas in Cumbria and 
Wales had been cleared from 
the restrictions on movement 
and slaughter of sheep, im- 
posed in the wake of the 
Chernobyl nuclear disaster. 
Announcing a lifting- of the 
ban on spedfied areas, Mr 
Michael Jopting, Minister of 
Agriculture, said that no deci- 
sion could be made yet on the 
sue of compensation to farm- 
ers who have suffered because 
of the restrictions.

Cojntnander for the Australia 


Southern Territory for the 
past three years. General Bur- 
rows met Mr Bob Hawke, 
Australian Prime Minister, to 
work out a national scheme to 
help young unemployed peo- 
ple. 

The Salvation Army raised 
$15 million in Australia last 
year to help the country s 
needy. 

General Burrows, who was 
born in Australia and is one of 
nine children, spent much of 
her childhood helping her 
parents, who were both Salva- 
tion Army officers, in their 
work among the poor of 
Fortitude Valley, Brisbane. 

After studying at Queens- 
land University where she 
gained a Bachelor of Arts 
degree, she attended to Wil- 
liam Booth Memonal Train- 
ing College In London and was 
commissioned as a Salvation 
Army officer in 1951. 

She later gained her Master 
of Education degree at Sydney 
University, ana became the

The department was ap- 
proached in October 1978 by 
the Lear Avia Corporation, 
based in Nevada, to see if it 
would - provide taxpayers’ 
money Towards the continuing 
development in the United 
Slates, and eventual manufac- 
ture in Northern Ireland, of 
the Lear Fan 2100, an eight- 
passenger turbo-prop jet. 

In early 1980 ministers 
agreed to a package of grants 
and loans, not exceeding 
£16.25 million, based on a 
plan which envisaged the air- 
craft gaining its airworthiness 
certificate by September 1982, 
and up to 1,250 jobs being 
created in Northern Ireland. 

But within months the de- 
partment was agreeing to guar- 
antee bank borrowing up to 
Si 5 million (£10 million} be- 
cause of a shortage of private 
investment 

The target date for the jet 
gaining its airworthiness cer- 
tificate slipped back repeated- 
ly. and the demands for extra 
cash continued. 

By August 1982 the depart- 
ment had committed £34.12 
million to the project 

Although a Saudi Arabian 
group agreed to invest up to 
S6Q million (£40 million) in 
the jet project, the troubles 
continued, with technical dif- 
ficulties and test failures. 

The Lear Fan project was 
finallly wound up in May 
1985, by which time 
£55.67 million of taxpayers' 
money had been invested.

Audit of 
opera 
accounts 
ordered 

By Gavin Bell 
Arts Correspondent 

A special report into the 
accounts of Opera North is 
being prepared, after allega- 
tions concerning the financial 
management of the subsidized 
company. 

The audit was ordered by 
Sir Gordon Linacre, the com- 
pany chairman, and Mr Tom 
McDonald, chairman of its 
finance committee, after lead- 
ing members of Leeds City 
Council received a number of 
anonymous telephone calls. 

Mr McDonald told The 
Times that because of the non- 
specific nature of the allega- 
tions a wide-ranging 
investigation was taking place. 

“I was surprised by the 
allegations and have no reason 
to believe they will be substan- 
tiated. However, I must re- 
serve judgement until the 
outcome of the audit is 
known.” 

The city council is contrib- 
uting more than £400,000 this 
year to Opera North, which is 
based at Leeds Grand Theatre. 
The principal funding of 
£2.5 million is provided by 
the Arts Council, while pri- 
vate sponsorship amounts to 
about £50,000. 

Mr Nicholas Payne, the 
general administrator of Op* 
era North, rejected the allega- 
tions as ludicrous: “We have 
to work to a very tight budget, 
as we receive less funding than 
other major opera companies. 

“Of course it's worrying to 
have something nasty like this 
flying around, but I am quite 
confident the audit will vindi- 
cate us.”

‘Get-tough’ move on copyright music 


A new get-tough policy by 
the Performing Right Society 
could land many small busi- 
ness people in the High Court 

The policy, under which the 
society is taking a harder line 
with those who play copy- 
righted music in their 
premises without a licence, 
came into force on July 1. 


Its enforcement was an 
important topic at the 
society's annual meeting in 
London yesterday. 

Proprietors from comer 
shops to top hotels, will have 
to pay a 50 per cent penalty 
surcharge on their first year's 
licence fee if they are caught 
playing music without a 
licence. 


The society brings at least 
one High Court action a week 
against licence evaders. 

“From July 1 we are adopt- 
ing a get-lough policy. We 
have around 40 inspectors 
touring the country to ensure 
that music is not played 
publicly without a licence,” a 
.society spokesman said. 


“If a proprietor of premises 
where music is played refuses 
to take out a licence then, 
whether he has a comer shop 
or a dance hall, he will be 
taken to the High Court 
“More than 50 High Court 
orders were issued last year 
banning the playing of copy- 
righted music until the propri- 
etors took out licences.”

French suspect terror 
link between Munich 
and Paris bomb attacks 


Light iail terms for hijackers of liner 


French police believe there 
could be a connection between 
a Paris attack and the almost 
simultaneous bomb attack in 
Munich, in which a West 
German industrialist and his 
driver were killed. 

Two more policemen strug- 
gled for life yesterday after the 
attack on Wednesday against 
the police anti-gang unit's 
headquarters in Paris in which 
a police inspector was killed 

M Charles Pasqua, the Inte- 
rior Minister, yesterday said 
the French Government was 
determined to take up the 
unprecedented terrorist chal- 
lenge thrown down by the 
bomb attack. 

No one has yet claimed 
responsibility for the bombing 
in which 18 people were 
injured, three of them 
seriously. 

Responsibility for the Mu- 
nich attack has been claimed 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 

by the German Red Army 
Faction, which joined forces 
18 months ago with Action 
Directe, the extreme-left 
French terrorist group. 

Since it joined the German 
group, Action Directe, which 
previously tried to avoid hu- 
man injury, has not hesitated 
to kill to further its aims. 

Police consider less likely a 
suggested link between the 
Paris bombing and the appear- 
ance in court yesterday of 
Georges Ibrahim Abdallah, 
alleged European leader of the 
Lebanese Armed Revolution- 
ary Factions (Fari). which has 
carried out more than a dozen 
terrorist attacks in France 
during the past six years. 

Abdallah, who has been in 
prison in France since his 
arrest in October 1984, was 
sentenced with six others to 
four years* imprisonment on

~~ three raptured hUackem to jad 

terms ranging from « 
years. The heaviest of these 
sentences went to the alleged 
ringleader, Magied al-Molqu 
aged 23. , , _ 

The court acquittal four of 
the accused and handed down 

five other sentence ranging 

from six months to 7 k years. 

Three close associates of 
Abu Abbas - Abdul Rahim 
Kaled, Ahmed Yusuf and Mu- 
hammad Ben Kadra ■ - re- 
ceived relatively light sen- 
tences ranging from OTc yeara 

and four months to In yearn. 

The public prosecutor at the 
22-day trial had requested a 
life sentence for Kaled, who 
boarded the Achiile Lauro 
with the hijackers in Genoa 
but disembarked, at Alexan- 
dria shortly before the liner 
was taken over. . 

A crippled Jewish-Amen- 
n passenger, Leon Klmghof- 
■ was killed during the tai- 


criminal association. He was 
also banned from reluming to 
France for five years after 
serving his sentence. 

Abdallah is one of three 
terrorists imprisoned m 
France whose release has been 
demanded by a terrorist group 
calling itself the Committee of 
Solidarity with Arab and Mid- 
dle Eastern Political Prison- 
ers. It claimed responsibility 
for several bomb attacks

• Resort hit A terrorist bomb 
exploded at a holiday centre in

West German police yester- 
day named nine suspects — 
four women and five men — in 
the search for the terrorists 
who murdered the Siemens 
scientific director and his driv- 
er in Munich. 

The police said they had 
reason to believe, that the nine 
had aU been in southern 
'Germany recently. The mur- 
ders took place in a suburb of 
Munich in Bavaria, which is in 
the sooth. 

The federal police bureau at 
Wiesbaden named the nine 
suspects as: Wolfgang Werner 
Grams, aged 33, Eva Sybilte 
Haule-F rii i pong, 32, Birgit 
Elisabeth Hogefeld. 30, An-

Seidler, 28, Thomas Simon, 
33, and Siegfried Sternebeck, 

37. _ 

The Meyers are a married 
couple and are suspects in the

murder of Harr Erest_ Zim- 
merman, the industrialist, in 
Munich on February 1 last 
year. 

Herr Kari-Heinz Beckurts, 
aged 56, the research and 
technology director of the 
electronics concern, and the 
driver, Herr Eckerhard 
Groppler, aged 42, died on 
Wednesday when their car 
was hit by a remote-controlled 
bomb. 

The federal public prosecu- 
tors office at Karlsruhe, which 
contains the leading experts 
on terrorism, believes that the 
Red Army Faction — # the 
terrorist group which claimed 
responsibOty — had been bid- 
ding for the more extreme 
among West Germany's anti- 
nuclear movement 

The letter from the faction, 

found at the scene of the crimn 
ran to seven pages and pointed 
out that Herr Beckurts 


“worked for the bourgeoisie on 
nuclear research at Jnlich (a 
West German town) durmg 

the Social Democratic (SPD) 
Government in the 1970s . 

The political repercussions 
yesterday included sugges- 
tions by various conservative 
politicians in Bonn and Bavar- 
ia that the attack was the 
natmral consequence of the 
recent violence from son« of 
the demonstrators outside fc 
unclear reprocessing plant be- 
ing built at Wackersdorff in 
Bavaria. 

SPD politicians warned 
against any “hysterical" or 
“excessive" reaction to the 
anti-nuclear protests. 

Police alleged that the nine 
belonged to the hard core of 
the Red Army Faction and 
that they had probably created 
a hide-out in the area of Herr 
Becknrts's borne.

three men, including another 
close associate of Abu Aboas,

Bias is most obvious inthe 
television news bulletins. Dur- 
ing the past 18 months they 
have shown little of the vio- 
lence in black townships and 
the brutal police behaviour. 

Television was introduced 
in 1976 and there are now four 
channels. TV 1 is shared by 
Afrikaans and English (pro- 
grammes until 8pm are in one 
language and those after 8pm 
are in the other lan^iage/tbe 
order changing each day). TV2 
(Zulu and Xhosa) and TV3 
(So tho and Tswmia) carry 
programmes in African lan- 
guages. . . 

TV4 is a new entertainment 
channel, in English and Afri- 
kaans, which relies heavily on 
American situation comedies, 
many involving black actors. 
Some see this as an attempt to 
get white South Africans ac- 
customed to the idea ofhaving 
blacks in their sitting-rooms, it 
initially only on the small 
screen. 

In the non-news area, 
changing attitudes haw been 
reflected in bolder TV plays 
which have explored such 
previously untouchable sub- 
jects as sexual relations be- 
tween people of different 

races. _

From A Correspondent 
Rome 

Signor Giulio Andreotti, the 

veteran "Christian Democrat 
who has been Italy's Prune 
Minister five times, was yes- 
teiday called in to try to fonn 
a government and hll_ tne 
vacuum caused by the resigna- 
tion two weeks ago of Signor 
Bettino Craxi. . 

Signor Andreotti, Foreign 
Minister in the Craxi Govern- 
ment, was summoned by Pres- 
ident Francesco Cossiga after 
two weeks of vain efforts to 
patch up a quarrel between the 
Christian Democrats and 
Statists. 

But unless Signor 
Andreotti, aged 67, can per- 
suade the Socialists to join bis 
government — which seems 
unlikely at present - his 
administration is almost cer- 
tainly doomed to lack a major- 
ity in Parliament. 

In these circumstances it 
would not be expected to last 
very long, and there is now a 
very real possibility of genera! 
elections in Italy eitiier in the 
autumn or next spring. 

The bitter quarrel between 
foe Socialists and the Chris- 
tian Democrats over who 
should hold the job of Pome 
Minister in foe coalition has 
now developed into a trial, ot 
strength in which neither side 
seems willing to lose face by 
backing down. 

The five-party formula is 
recognized by all the parties in 
foe outgoing Governmen t to 
be the only viable administra- 
tion in foe present Parliament 
which does not involve calling 
in foe powerful Communists. 1 

But the Socialists demand 
unconditional support for a 
new Craxi administration. 
The Christian Democrats say 
they will agree to Signor Craici 
staying on only until the end 
of this year. Alternati vely they 
will support him until foe etto 
of the legislature in 1 988 as 
long as he agrees to back their 
leadership of the Government 
for foe next five years.

In a country where most 
normal forms of political ac- 
tion are denied to blacks, trade 
unions, which were made legal 
for blacks only in 1979, inev- 
itably have become one of the 
main channels for the expres- 
sion of political, as well as 
social and economic, griev- 
ances.

MaWU contends that the 
Government failed to oteerve 
the proper procedures after it

CTonJune 12, and that all the 
regulations implemented wi- 
der it have been unlawful 

since June 26. The case is to be 

heard next week. 


With a budget of 55 cents 
(36p) per citizen, US civil 
defence is in a parlous state. 
Accoiding to a new report, any 
ability to protect the popula- 
tion and operate the govern- 
ment in the aftermath of a 
nuclear war is “low and 
declining”. 

The Federal Emergency 
Management Agency (IJma), 
which is changed with co- 
ordinating and supporting the 
civil defence network, said a 
programme modelled on the 
extensive Swiss system wpuld 
probably require a sustained 
annual budget billion (£6 
billion). 

The budget request for next 
year is $130 million, which 
pays for such things as the 
emergency operating centres 
established by every state 


most of 

them lack what would be 
needed to function after a 
nuclear war. 

The Reagan Administration 
has now informed state gov- 
ernments that they will no 
longer receive funds under the 
Civil Defence Act for natural 
disaster planning unless they 
also prepare for nuclear war. 
The move reflects the Gov- 
ernment's determination to 
put more emphasis on nuclear 
war survival. However, Fema 
has reassured states that funds 
appropriated for hurricane re- 
lief and flood control will not 
be affected. 

There is resistance by many 
states to spending millions of 
dollars on protection against 
nuclear attack.

For Beijing, we specially adapted the system from its

usual motor vehicle basis and developed detector techniques 
to allow for the smaller metal content and slower speeds of 
the bicycle. 

Now, were about to supply install and commission- 
hardware and software for the project 

This includes intersection controllers, detectors, plus 
computer management with operator peripherals and 
wallmap displays. 

So, 15 months from now, Beijing’s cyclists Should be 
happily freewheeling again. 

All systems go. * 

Our traffic control systems are merely the tip of the

Wfere dedicated to technology in areas as far ranging

Our investment for the future too, goes beyond research 
and development and into people. 

In recent years we have recruited up to 10% of the 
nations brightest electronics graduates. 

Many of them stay with us and become part of our 
management structure. So that most of our divisions have 
managing directors in their forties -with a strong entre- 
preneurial spirit ? 

Our operating profits over the past 5 years underline

from analogue to digital electronic systems. *. 

The fast lane. | 

The next few years look particularly healthy for us iij 
the area of new product development 

Equally, initiatives in the United States, Europe and

For this success to continue, it is vital that we preserve 

the qualities which make us unique as a company. 

And we believe that we can only do this by maintaining

Suicide guerrillas in fierce

From Robert Fisk 
• Beirut 

For the first time, Palestin- . 
ian and Lebanese guerrilla 
groups mounted a joint opera- 
tion against the Israelis in 
southern Lebanon yesterday, 
engaging Israeli troops in a 
suicidal two-hour gun battle 
that left four of their own men 
and two Israeli soldiers dead. 

Nine other Israeli soldiers 
were wounded in the fierce 
fighting on a Mediterranean 
beach just south of the UN 
headquarters at Naqqoura in 
the early hours of the morn- 
ing, during which the Palestin- 
ians and. Lebanese hurled 
grenades at Israeli troops. The 
boat on which they were trying 
to sail south towards Israel 
had been intercepted and set 
on fire by an Israeli naval 
patrol 

Unconfirmed reports from 
southern Lebanon yesterday 
said that two other Israeli 



soldiers had been so badly 
wounded that they were not 
expected to live, while three 
other guerrillas, two Lebanese 
and a Palestinian, survived 
the battle and had been taken 
prisoner. 

In Sidon yesterday morn- 
ing, the Popular Front for the 
Liberation of Palestine — 
whose headquarters is in Da- 
mascus — and the pro-Syrian 
Syrian Social Nationalist Par- 
ty issued a joint communique 


claiming responsibility for the 
attempt to infiltrate to Israel 
in what they described as 
seaborne suicide operation . 
The statement claimed that 
five Israeli soldiers had been 
killed just north of the Israeli 
coastal town of Nahanya. 

In feel the guerrillas never 
reached Israel. They beached 
their burning dinghy tin the 
Lebanese coast just north O! 
the Israeli frontier but inside 
Israel's occupation zone in 
southern Lebanon. 

For two hours, UN troops at 
their nearby headquarters

From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 

Two senior Shin Bet offi- expected to apply for them if 

they are charged following a 
police inquiry into the affair. 

Meanwhile, the court has 
announced it will hear the 
many outstanding cases in the 
Shin Bet affair on July 20. 
These will include hearing the 
Government’s reason for re- 
fusing to hold an inquiry into 
what happened at the time of I 
the Palestinians’ deaths. 

Mr Yosef Harish, the Attor- 
ney-General has said he will 
tell the hearing that the police 
inquiry cannot be stopped if, 
by then, the Government still 
continues to refuse to set up a 
secret judicial inquiry.

would prefer a judicial inquiry

Dhaka violence 
erupts after 
opposition snub 
to Parliament 


From Ahmed Fad, Dhaka 


Violent clashes broke out 
between thousands of opposi- 
tion supporters and security 
forces on the streets of Dhaka 
yesterday as the newly-elected 
Parliament opened. 

The inaugural session mark- 
ed the first phase in the return 
of civilian rule after more than 
four years of martial law. 

More than 300 people were 
injured as riot police and 
paramilitary units iired on 
demonstrators shouting slo- 
gans for the immediate end of 
military rule, hospital sources 
and eye-witnesses said. 

About 100 people were 
arrested after the clashes, po- 
lice officials said. 

Sheikh Hasina Wazed, chief 
of the Awami League, an- 
nounced a parallel “‘par- 
liament" with 103 opposition 
members belonging to the 
League and an eight-party 
alliance, after police said she 
could not enter the Parliament 
Building chanting slogans. 

“We are holding a session of 
the people's parliament." 
Sheikh Hasina said at the 
Parliament gate as opposition 
members accused President 
Ershad of delaying dem- 
ocracy. 

While General Ershad 
promised in an address inside 
the Parliament to speed up the 
restoration of civilian rule, 
supporters of the former rul- 
ing Bangladesh Nationalist 
Party and the fundamentalist 


Jamaat-i-Islarai hurled stones 
and exploded hand bombs. A 
dozen policemen were injured 
in the clashes. 

Police burst tear-gas shells 
in several places to disperse 
mote breaking road barri- 
cades set up to prevent dem- 
onstrators reaching the Par- 
liament Building. 

More than 5.000 policemen 
were deployed around the 
building in the morning as 
tens of thousands of opposi- 
tion supporters began to gath- 
er for a protest march. 

A total of 119 opposition 
and independent members 
boycotted the opening session. 

A parliamentary official 
said 204 members, which 
included 199 from the ruling 
Jatiyo Party, were in the 330- 
seat house. Seven by-elections 
are due next month. 

General Ershad said that the 
Parliament would become the 
nerve centre of all national 
activities in ffiture. But he 
gave no date for the ending of 
martial law, imposed when he 
seized power in March 1982. 

Earlier on Wednesday, Gen- 
eral Ershad appointed a civil- 
ian Prime Minister, Mr Miz- 
anur Rahman Chowdhury, to 
head a 26-member Cabinet, 
dropping all serving generals 
from the Government for the 
first time. 

Meanwhile, the Parliament 
was adjourned until July 13.

Yugoslavs 
jail six for 
sabotage 

Belgrade (Reuter) — Six 
Albanian nationalitts have 
been sentenced to a total of 60 
years in jail for hostile actions 
and sabotage, the Belgrade 
daily Polilika said yesterday. 

The sentences were passed 
on Wednesday by the district 
court in Bar, a port city in the 
Yugoslav republic of Monte- 
negro which borders Albania. 

The six were accused of 
hostile propaganda against 
Yugoslavia and planning acts 
of sabotage. They had amass- 
ed considerable amounts of 
explosives and weapons for 
this purpose, the report said. 


Typhoon pounds Philippines 


Typhoon Peggy cast a de- 
structive path across the 
northern Philippines yester- 
day, killing more than 40 
people, flooding huge areas 
and leaving behind a wide trail 
of wrecked houses, crops and 
buildings before heading to- 
wards south-east China. 

The first typhoon of the 
season strode Ihe main Philip- 
pines island of Lnzon on 
Wednesday with 109 mpfa 
muds and torrential rain, 
uprooting crops and flooding 
huge tracks of prime agricul- 
tural land. 

Early reports from Red 
Cross field officers pinpointed

north of Manila, as being the 
worst bit with thousands left 
homeless and sheltering in 
evacuation centres. 

More than 130,000 people 
were affected — more than half 
of them evacuees — and more 
than 3,000 homes were com- 
pletely or partly destroyed, 
according to the Ministry of 
Social Services and Develop- 
ment officers in just two of the 
four devastated regions. 

With the restoration of com- 
munications in these two re- 
gions, the number of deaths, 
and the estimates of crops and 
property damage are expected 
to rise sharply. 

Landslides isolated the 
mountain resort city of Baguio, 


where the bodies of 14 people 
were recovered from beneath 
the nibble of mod, boulders 
and trees which crashed and 
buried squatter hots dinging 
to the hillside. 

Although 250 miles from 
the eye of the typhoon, Manila 
was buffeted by high winds 
and driving rain. Swirling 
waist-high floods inundated 
the low-lying su barbs. 

Flood water in swollen dty 
canals, clogged with refuse, 
washed away scores of squat- 
ter shanties and by raid- 
morning 15 evacuation centres 
set up in schools and munici- 
pal halls were fall. All classes 
were suspended and workers 
in government and private 
offices ordered home. 


WITHOUT US 
AMERICAH HOSPITALS WOULOH’T 
BE SUCH SHARP 


The unruly state of fin- 
land's industrial relations in 
the spring has underlined the 
growing importance of .the 
Scandinavian trend towards 
while-collar militancy. 

Strikes are becoming more 
and more middlc<iass afiaiis. 
More hours per union mem- 
ber have been lost in while- 
collar than in blue-collar 
strikes every year since 1982. 

The last conflict, which was 
settled just before the summer 
holiday season began on July 
1. was the electricians', strike, 
which broke recent records by 
lasting almost three months. 

The most spectacular con- 
flict was the four-week strike 
by one of the Civil Service and 
state employees’ unions. Al- 
though disruptive, there was 
little' actual damage. But it was 
.an important milestone to- 
wards new militancy. - 
Even most civil servants in 
Foreign Ministry went out, 
and it created serious difficul- 
ties in external information 
after the Chernobyl disaster. 

The. white-collar militancy 
began in the 1970s when 
women-dominated ■ groups, 
such as nursing and kindergar- 
ten teachers, started to de- 
mand reasonable wages. After 
this strikes spread to. numer- 
ous professions, from lib- ‘ 
rarians to doctors. .. 

Specialists in and out of 
trade unions say that the 
reasons behind the white- 
collar militancy are dearly 
financial Centralized wage 
and price agreements winch 
have dominated Finnish, in- 
dustrial relations since the 
mid-1970s have created dear 
disparities and favoured tradi- . 
tional blue-collar unions. 

White-collar unions have . 
not had wage rises and. other 
benefits brought about by 
favourable economic con- 
ditions. 

Finland has had steady 3 


per cent yearly growth in 
GNP. relative low unemploy- 
ment at about 6 per cent, and 
steadily declining inflation for 
several years. But white-collar 
workers have not been able to 
keep up with manual workers' 
wages and many professions 
have also lost, much of their 
prestige. 

.This has led to clearly felt 
frustrations,- because teachers, 
nurses; pharmacists and most 
other traditional middle-class 
professionals cannot dream of 
earning as much as a skilled 
carpenter or metalworker, opt 
to mention smaller, special- 
ized groups such as typo- 
graphers. 

Now 85 per cent of the 
members of Akava, the central 
organization for academically 
trained professionals, are wUL 
log to resort to strikes to 
improve their lot. The- same 
figure was only 23 per cent as 
recently as 1982. 

Structural changes in the 
country’s economy have given 
white-collar unions more 
members and . confidence, 
.while the old unions belonging 
to Sak, Finland's equivalent of 
the TUG are losing members. 
It is estimated that Akava will 
gain almost 50 per cent more 
members by the year 2000, 
and other white-collar unions 
will grow at similar speed. 

• This year the white-collar 
unions showed their strengh 
by signing a centralized wages 
and taxes agreement with the 
employers and the Govern- 
ment without Sak. 

This forced Sak to re- 
establish its prominence by a 
general strike. It- lasted only 
two days but showed that it is 
still die most important union 
organization and it wants to 
play a decisive role in negotia- 
tions between the unions, the 
employers and the Govern- 
ment. 



Hospitals, like other organisations, 
depend on unfaltering support services. 
In this way, the medical staff can con- 
centrate exclusively on what they have 
been trained fbn caring for the sick. 

These crucial support services in a great

of America, as well as across Europe, ore

To some of them Initial supplies herm-

containing gowns, gloves, masks and 
other items for operating 
theatres. 


efficiently, BET supports its commercial, 
industrial and public sector customers

strategically related businesses all aim to 
provide the highest standards of service. 

Evidence of the success of its policies is 
reflected in the company’s performance 
and in its recent series of carefully chosen

with its stated strategy.

Nurses in 
Israel lose 
pay fight 

From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

Israel's 11.000 hospital 
nurses yesterday ended their 
1 8-day-old strike, having 
failed to force the Govern- 
ment into negotiations on a 
new pay deaL 

The strike was called off 
after an agreement was 
reached to discuss ways of 
| .improving working condi- 
tions so that young people 
would be attracted to the 
profession. But the deal specif- 
ically avoided any talk of 
improving pay. 

The nurses had strongly 
denied government claims 
that they were among the best 
paid civil servants, receiving a 
lake-home pay of about £500 a 
month. They said the true 
figure was nearer half that 
amount, even after a promised 
12 per cent arbitration award 
was taken into consideration. 

The Government had re- 
fused to talk about pay, saying 
that any increase to the nurses 
would break the national wage 
agreement on which the suc- 
cess of the country’s economic 
austerity plan depended. 

The nurses have neverthe- 
less been promised a new 
trade union to protect their 
interests, in line with earlier 
demands. 


Fuel crisis 
spreads in 
Australia 


Sydney (Renter)— The New 
Smith Wales government yes- 
terday introduced strict petrol 
rationing as efforts continued 
to end a petrol strike threaten- 
htfimost of the country. 

The strike by the Federated 
Storemen and Packers Union, 
which controls petrol distribu- 
tion outlets, has already forced 
Victoria to ration petrol and 
South Australia may soon 
have to follow. The strikers 
are demanding improved re- 
tirement benefits. 

The Federal Industrial Re- 
lations Minister, Mr Ralph 
Willis, warned in a radio 
interview, yesterday that the 
Government, which has so far 
rejected opposition demands 
to force the strikers back to 
work, might intervene if tire 
dispute is not resolved quickly. 

However, the lahonr situa- 
tion appeared to be be improv- 
ing slightly in other sectors. 
Dockers, who walked oat fbr 
three days last week, have 
reached a settlement with 
employers over the retirement 
issue. Domestic airline pilots 
also dropped strike plans after 
reaching an agreement on 
Wednesday night 
The Oil Industry Industrial 
Secretariat yesterday said it 
might seek permission from 
the Arbitration Commission to 
lay off the striking workers. 


Malaysian rulers free 
from prosecution 

From M. G .G. Pillai, Koala Lompar 


The Malaysian High Court 
has ruled that the King, the 
nine slate rulers and their 
Crown Princes have absolute 
immunity against prosecu- 
tion, in what is believed to be 
the first decision of its kind. 

An appeal could still be 
made to the Supreme Court 
but Mr Justice Harun Hash- 
im's decision confirmed the 
prevailing view that Malay- 
sia's rulers and their immedi- 
ate heirs could not be sued far 
their public and diverse acts. 

The issue came before the 
courts when Mr Da eng Baha 
Ismail, a Malaysian business- 
man, decided to sue the King, 
Sultan Mahmood Iskandar, 
and his son, Tunku (Prince) 
Ibrahim IsmaiL the Crown 
Prince of Johore, for alleged 
assault tiiree years ago. Also 
named in the suit were two 
police officers and the Gov- 
ernment of Malaysia. 

There was consternation 
and astonishment when the 
writ was filed last month, but 
Tan Sri Abu Taiib Os man, the 


Attorney-General, for the 
King and his son, lrad theii 
names struck from the suit 
when it was heard this week. 

Sultan Mahmood Iskandar 
was elected Malaysia's King in 
1984 by the nine rulers, who 
choose one of -.drear number 
for the post every five years. In 
1961 the King had been re- 
moved as Crown Prince of Jo- 
hore, but was restored to that 
position 20 years later, becom- 
ing the Sultan when his father 
died shortly afterwards. 

Mr Daeng Ismail alleges 
that this restoration was un- 
constitutional since the King 
could not be in the direct line 
of succession once removal 
from iL 

. By the Johore Constitution 
in 1895 Britain provided that 
the sultanate should be held 
by direct male heirs of the first 
three rulers of modern Johore. 

Should there not be a male 
heir, the throne could go to 
any Johore Malay commoner 
approved by the State Coun- 
cil. 


Bishop trial acquittals 


HEALTHY SERVICES 


St George's, Grenada (Ren- 
ter) — Prosecutors yesterday 
'rested their case in the Man- 
rice Bishop murder trial 
throughout which some 
charges have been dropped 
against two of the 18 
defendants. 

The defendants are accused 
of murdering the former Gre- 
nada Prime Minister and sev- 
en of his associates in a bloody 
coop which prompted the US- 
led invasion of the island in 
October 1983. 

Chris Soronde and CecH 
Prime were yesterday acquit- 


ted of numdering tiiree of Mr 
Bishop's associates. 

The state has contended 
that the murder was planned 
at a meeting, of the Central 
Committee of Mr Bishop's 
New Jewel Movement (N JM). 
Several of the accused were 
locked in a power struggle 
within the NJM. - 

Mach of the testimony so 
far has come from defendants' 
statements, which they allege 
were made Ji ndw torture. . 

Tire defendants pie; due to 
present their casetoday. 



THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 11 1986 




Four years ago, Britain’s leading car manufacturer embarked upon its 
most demanding challenge ever 

To build a range of luxury executive saloons that would be without equal. 

It would be an achievement that could be realised only through the total, 
heart-felt commitment from everyone involved in the development of the car. 

From those responsible for its looks and beauty of line. 

For its performance, handling and ride. Its specification and comfort. And, 
for its quality and reliability. 

That commitment would lead to many changes in approach and attitude. 

Most notably it would result in a unique development programme and 
joint venture between two leading car manufacturers. 

Rover and Honda. 

It would be a joint venture in the truest sense, the most productive sense. 
From day one they would share, exchange and improve ideas. 

They would work together on every aspect of the project. 

Better still, they would constantly compete with one another in the 
development of two separate executive motor cars. 

One a Rover; the other a Honda. 

As distinctively different as they are distinctive. 

Today, that vision becomes reality. For Rover. And for Britain.

Boats aren’t cheap. 

But, if a real beauty came 
along wouldn’t it be handy 
to have the buying power 
right there and then? A Boat 
Loan lets you borrow up to 
£10,000. So, what’s the point 
in dreaming. This time next 
week you could 
be on the water. 




L ; 

' s 



Odd how the sales seem to start when you can least 
afford them. But that’s the time to find the real bargains. 
A Personal Loan means you can go to the 
sales with the power of cash behind you. So, 
just point to what you want and it’s yours. 



§5

."ir.v -- • t 


High-tech usually comes with a high price. If it’s 
more than you can afford at the moment, 
think about a Personal 
Loan. Pop in and see us 
or just fill in a form. 

That way 
you cad be 
tapping the 
keyboard instead 
of just tapping 
your fingers.

The Car 






The New Rove r 800 Series 


Purity of form, consummate luxury, classic beauty. 

Computerised electronics hand in hand with some of the 
world’s most sophisticated automotive engineering. And a remarkable 
balance between smoothness of ride and quite awesome power. 
The new Rover 800 Series. 

Britain's new four-model range of luxury cars. All four models 
have been designed and built to meet the most exacting demands of

THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 11 1986 


SPECTRUM 


jom voos 


So what is 
the gome in 

Edinburgh? 

A boycott by two African countries and more 
may follow. Or will they? Alan Franks found 
Edinburgh’s Commonw ealth Gamesmen in 
an oddly unruffled state with 1 3 days to go 


This morning at the 1986 Com- 
monwealth Games headquarters in 
Edinburgh's Canning Street, the 
■countdown calendar on the wall 
reads **13 days to go". This also 
happens to be the thirteenth con- 
vention in the mainly harmonious 
life of the Games, and the number 
■is living up to its reputation for ill 
fortune. 

Once dubbed the "friendly 
games", they have now become 
engulfed in the wider confronta- 
tions over South African sanctions, 
and are in danger of losing whatev- 
er might have been left of their 
political innocence. 

Yet, extraordinarily, the report- 
ed boycott of the games by two 
African naiionsis not being taken 
entirely seriously in Edinburgh at 
the moment. Nigeria's and 
Ghana's respective team entries of 
79 and 33 still stand in the 
computer system at the Games 
village, and the accommodation 
for the athletes and officials has not 
been reallocated. 

The reason is that the sports 
councils of the two countries had 
not. as of yesterday, made any 
official declaration of withdrawal 
to their opposite numbers in 
Edinburgh. So the organising com- 
mittee is proceeding on the as- 
sumption that Ghana and Nigeria 
will be coming to Scotland. Indeed, 
the committee chairman, Ken 
Borthwick. a former Lord Provost 
of Edinburgh, seemed to find hope 
in the news that some Nigerian 
athletes have already arrived in 
England (four of the team are in 
London, preparing for tomorrow's 
Crystal Palace meeting). 

Even as the Foreign Secretary, 
Sir Geoffrey Howe, was meeting 
Robert Mugabe yesterday in Zim- 
babwe. a country widely believed 
to be the next potential “refusenik'’ 
competitor, the Games organizers 


were putting a remarkably bullish 
gloss on the present crisis. 

Bryan CowgilL deputy executive 
chairman of the games committee 
— and former head of BBC 
Television sport — emphasizes that 
even if diplomatic attempts at 
rapprochement fail, the Games will 
still boast more than 3.000 compet- 
itors. which would be 1,000 more 
than in Brisbane four years ago. 

Including Nigeria and Ghana, 58 
Commonwealth countries are 
scheduled to take part, England 
being the most numerous, with 299 
athletes, and only five member 
countries (St Helena, the Solomon 
Islands, the Turks and Caicos 
Islands. Tuvalou and Tonga) will 
be unrepresented. 

Yesterday morning, Borthwick 
was busy dashing off letters to his 
three main channels of alliance — 
the Commonwealth Games Feder- 
ation, the Commonwealth Games 
Council for Scotland and the 
Secretary of State for Scotland - in 
the hope that they will be able to in- 
tervene in the boycott derate. 

THERE are three great ironies here 
for the host city. First, Borthwick 
and his colleagues made precisely 
the same approaches in order to 
object to the recent tours of South 
Africa by the All Blacks and British 
Rugby Union parties. 

Second. Scotland in general, and 
Edinburgh in particular, regard 
themselves as highly reciprocal 
parts of the Commonwealth, hav- 
ing educated many visiting African 
students in theology and the law. 

• Third. Borthwick himself was 
among Commonwealth delegates 
at a meeting in February in Nairobi 
to discuss plans for the Games — an 
occasion which he left with "a 
tremendous sense of happy antici- 
pation by all the other 




Trail blazer: Gaines committee chairman Ken Borthwick — recently out of Africa, currently full of hope 


countries ... no hint whatsoever 
of boycotting, or anything like 
that”. 

While in Africa, he toured 
Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe and 
Kenya, speaking to government 
ministers. He considered it, show- 
ing evident restraint, to be "odd" 
that Scotland should now be 
suffering from a political problem 
which emanates from Westmin- 
ster. The atmosphere in Edinburgh 
at present has shades of that in 
Mexico City during the run-up to 
the World Cup — major interna- 
tional venues with experience of 
organizing a competition in 1970, 
and now attempting, against the 
run of economic play, to repeat 
those successes. 

Just like the ground at Monter- 
rey before England started their 
World Cup matches, Meadowbank 
Stadium looks like the aftermath of 
Culloden. There is turmoil from 
the foyer to the field with staff 
working around the dock to make 
the premises ready for sporting 
guests bent on high achievement 
Just across the road there is the 
incongruous spectacle of an army 
team setling up a Bailey Bridge to 
take pedestrians safely over the 
roaring traffic. 

Edinburgh, like Mexico City, has 


its eye to the economic main 
chance as a result of the Games. 
Half a million visitors are expect- 
ed, and the Scottish Tourist Board 
is predicting an input of £55 
million as a result A few days ago a 
£200,000 press centre was complet- 
ed, which, after the Games, will 
turn into a sports complex with an 
estimated lifespan of 20 years. 

When the Games planning start- 
ed more iHiin four years ago, there 
were 37 committees involved, 
comprising 400 people. Today, if 
you include voluntary labour, there 
are 23,000 individuals, ranging 
from the programme sellers and car 
park attendants to the senior 
executives. The Games committee 
reckons that it has raised some£10 
million to fond the occasion, most 
of it coming from advertising and 
merchandising. 

While the world wrangles over 
the rights and wrongs of competing 
in Edinburgh, the city itself has had 
its own political difficulties. Last 
year the endemically conservative 
establishment found itself in such 
conflict with the new left-wing 
council that Borthwick was report- 
ed to have said he would be glad to 
see the games go to Glasgow. A 
heresy if ever there was one. 

Back at the Games' administra- 


tive centre in Canning Street, 
Bryan Cowgill seems like a rather 
weary elder statesman of sports 
administration. "Nothing would 
surprise me'*, he says. “Not any 
more; not after what I have seen in 
the past 15 years. Sport is at the 
centre stage of one of life’s great 
theatres. 

“It would be very sad, very 
disappointing if Nigeria and Ghana 
do finally pull ouL Yes, of course 
we fear that if this happens, other 
African countries might follow. But 
I would point out, again, that even 
if that does happen, there will still 
be a huge presence here. The sad 
thing is that this event was con- 
ceived as a completely non-politi- 
cal thing." 

Meanwhile, die press officer 
freshly installed at Canning Street, 
a ginger-haired giant called Ken 
Laird, is on the telephone to Robert 
Maxwell - or “RM" - awaiting a 
statement on the latest state of 
play. 

LAIRD says: "The thing is that it 
all seems to develop as the day 
progresses. At the moment he says 
that he will say something on 
Friday, but I suppose there could 
be something before that I really 
don't know."

BRYAN COWGILL (abort) 


In yesterday’s edition of the 
Glasgow Daily Record, Maxwell, 
chairman of the Commonwealth 
Games Company, wrote a front 
page article headlined "Why The 
Games Will Survive". No purpose 
would be served by the boycott, he 
argued It would be a protest 
against Mrs Thatcher’s rebuttal of 
sanctions on South Africa. "But 
these are- not Mrs Thatcher’s 
games. They are the games of more 
than 40 nations, bound' together 
only by history and friendship." 

- It* is Borthwick who has borne 
the brunt of criticism over , the 
administration of the games. One 
of the most strident charges has 
been that he sold exclusive televi- 
sion rights to the BBC for less than 
£500,000, whereas the coverage 
could have been expected to raise 
six times that figure. Another is 
that he severely undersold the 
advertising space around the main 
arena of Meadowbank. _ 

Last year, Alex Wood, 
Edinburgh’s Labour council leader; 
said that the authority would be 
prepared to underwrite a loss on 
the Games of up to £250,000. Both 
he and Borthwick. and for that 
matter Maxwell, are hoping that it 
will not come to that, even though 
they are approaching the matter 
from entirely different positions.

With a look of benign resigna- 
tion, Monsigror Bruce Kent 
stood on the stage of Mother- 
well Civic Centre and looked 
down upon his audience. To 
the left a septuagenarian 
Clydeside communist was 
waving his walking slick and 
shouting "Step outside!" His 
intended victim, a balding 
moustachioed man in a denim 
jacket, was declaiming "I'm a 
Catholic and a Conservative 
and I’m proud of iL What 
about the persecution of 
Christians in Russia?" 

To the front an earnest 
young man from an enigmatic 
organization called the Coali- 
tion for Peace through Securi- 
ty was holding forth to a 
Motherwell housewife in loud, 
rather pompous tones about 
Utilitarianism, John Stuart 
Mill and nuclear deterrence. 
"Don’t patronize me", said 
the woman, who turned out to 
be a graduate in political 
philosophy with her own 
shrewd suspicions of who 
might be financing the myste- 
rious coalition. 

To the right a protestor of 
Russian extraction, making 
comments on the issue of 
Solidarity in Poland, was be- 
ing told by the city's provost 
to ask a question or sit down. 
Enthusiastic supporters of the 
Campaign for Nuclear Disar- 
mament advanced as if to 
eject the man, who was now 
announcing that he was a 
deacon in the Russian Ortho- 
dox Church. 

From the back a woman's 
voice cut plaintively through 
the chaos. "I thought this was 
supposed to be a peace 
meeting", she lamented. 

Bruce Kent has long since 
come to realize that the sub- 
ject of peace is capable of 
raising the most belligerent 
acrimony. It was the third day 
of his 500-mile sponsored 
walk from the Polaris subma- 
rine base at Faslane to the 
Royal Ordnance factory at 
Burgh field in Berkshire. He is 
following one of the routes 
which nuclear warheads regu- 
lar^- lake from the base to the 
factory for servicing and up- 
dating. It appeared that con- 
troversy was to be his walking 
companion all the way. 

The next morning it was 
there with him by 9:15. He 
had risen early, and after a 
short prayer meeting present- 
ed himself at the previous 
day's finishing point on the 
southern outskirts of the little 
Lanarkshire town of Larkhall. 

His clerical grey and dog 
collar were packed away in his 
massive leather suitcase on 
board the mini-van which 
served as support vehicle. In 
their stead he wore light green 
Rohan bags, solid training 
shoes and a sweat shirt pro- 
claiming his aspiration of a 
nuclear-free world and an- 
nouncing that his fund raising 


Walking the warhead road 


on the walk was for War on 
Want as well as CND. 

"We ought to make the 
point that there is no genuine 
problem of poverty or 
malnutrition", he said. “The 
world has the resources to 
eradicate them but we choose 
to waste the money on arms. 
We asked War on Want to 
choose two projects which 
highlighted the problem. One 
is in Eritrea, where people 
suffer because of Soviet guns. 
The other is in Nicaragua, 
where they suffer because of 
American military aid." That 
said, he set out on the stretch 
from Larkhall southwards to- 
wards the English border. 

J ust past the first round- 
about. two bedraggled 
figures emerged from a 
hedge. It was the dea- 
con and the earnest 
young man from the night 
before, now wearing T-shirts 
which ambiguously exhorted 
us to "Remember Hungary". 
All that day they were to 
march a few hundred yards 
ahead of Bruce Kent’s party. 
They carried a placard which 
read: "CND marching to 
surrender". 

The Monsignor was not too 
perturbed Most of the passing 
traffic seemed merely to re- 
gard them as the official 
vanguard preparing the way 
and making straight the path. 
Cars tooted an amiable greet- 
ing to both sets of protesters. 

The degree of support from 
car horns, passing waves from 
lony drivers and vocal greet- 
ings from fellow pedestrians 
suipnsed me. but Kent 
seemed to take it for granted. 
His walking togs revealed a 
generous stomach which the 
clerical garb had concealed the 
night before, but he looked fit 
and healthy and impressively 
tanned .from the previous days 
of Scottish sunshine. 

He set a furious pace. Out in 
front the deacon and the 
earnest young man seemed to 
have trouble keeping ahead 
The deacon was walking bad- 
ly. limping and slicking to the 
main route, while his compan- 
ion limped energetically to 
and fro, dishing out anti-CND 
leaflets from a plastic carrier 
bag. Kent who had acolytes 
from local CND groups along 
the route to give out his 
leaflets, suffered neither 
handicap and had a mischie- 
vous twinkle in his eye. The 
more the other two glanced 
anxiously behind them, the 
more vigorously he pushed 
on. 

“You have to admire them, 
in a way", he said. One of 
Bruce Kent's most engaging 


• ’ • ■ '‘•V - 1 ; V ^ S> 



The long march: snperwallcer Brace Kent sets a furious pace 


characteristics is that though 
he is one of the leading 
proponents in Britain of what 
is now known as single-issue 
politics, be does not suffer 
from commensurate tunnel 
vision. There were 15 miles to 
do that day and he was happy 
to range over as many topics 
of conversation and more. 

There were, of course, his 
basic theses on nuclear disar- 
mament. On a strategic level, 
that Britain does not need an 
independent nuclear weapon 
system. On a technical level 
that the increasing sophistica- 
tion of missiles constantly 
shortens the time for correct- 
ing mistakes. On a tactical 
level, that the more accurate 
weapons become, the more 
destabilizing is their effect 
because they require more 
missiles from the other side. 
On a moral level, that a 
deterrent which depends upon 
the willingness to retaliate 
with weapons of mass murder 
is unjustifiable in any sense. 

One of his particular con- 
cerns is of the relationship 
between the arms race and 
world poverty. He is fond of 
equations which reveal how 
many millions of Africans 
could be provided with dean 
water for the price of a single 
Tornado jet. "It is quite 
wicked", he says, with a 


revealing sense of simple mor- 
al absolutism. 

It is the classic moralism of 
orthodox Catholicism. Kent 
cannot see why a church that 
holds views of such certainty 
and clarity on issues like 
abortion is not just as un- 
equivocal about the sin inher- 
ent in the ownership of 
weapons capable of destroying 
the world. Indeed, he feels as 
strongly about the perils of 
peaceful nuclear power. That 
too. he sees as some kind of 
perversion of the natural 
order. 

W hen Monsignor 
Kent moves 
away from 
CND issues, 
however, he is 
revealed as a man of moderate 
instincts, as befits a priest who 
in other drcumslances might 
well by now be a bishop. He 
speaks with unease about the 
speed with which the Latin 
mass was abolished; although 
he welcomed it himself, he 
recognized the heartache it 
caused to many older Roman 
Catholics. He has common- 
sense attitudes to the growing 
role of women in the Church. 
He has an Englishman's dis- 
taste for the Machiavellian 
intrigue surrounding the 
Vatican's finances. 


He also has an admirable 
humility about his own spiri- 
tual development “I was very 
much a Saul in those days, my 
main aim was to make more 
Catholics", he said of his early 
years as a priest before in- 
volvement with the peace 
movement widened his ecu- 
menism and openness to other 
Christians. 

The son of a Canadian 
businessman. Kent was edu- 
cated by Jesuits at Slonyhurst 
the Roman Catholic public 
school, and was commis- 
sioned as an officer in the 6th 
Royal Tank Regiment where 
he first got an inkling of bis 
vocation. His non-Catholic 
father was none too pleased by 
the idea, so the young Kent, 
went to Brasenose College, 
Oxford, where, to buy time, he 
read law and spent “three 
lotus-eating years" before 
joining St Edmunds Seminary 
at Ware to study for the 
priesthood. As a young priest 
he was secretary to Cardinal 
Heenan and chairman of the 
Westminster Diocesan 
Schools Commission and. 
church observers ay, dearly 
marked out fora bishopric. 

“One knows that if you 
come out of the right sort of 
stable, that if you want promo- 
tion and a career, it’s all there 
■before you. It was certainly 
open to me. If I'd kept my 
mouth shut and behaved my- 
self all would have bean wefl. 
But I couldn't have done that 
and I'm very glad 1 didn’t. 
Being a bishop is not the only 
thing in this world." 

Bruce Kent took that deci- 
sion deliberately when in the 
happiest years of his career — 
as chaplain to London Uni- 
versity — his horizons were 
widened by the students and 
clerics he met. many of them 
from the Third World. Partic- 
ularly influential was the 
Archbishop of Bombay, 
Thomas Roberts, who was 
courageous on issues of 
nuclear deterrence and birth 
control in the 1960s. ' 

Kent's conscious politiciza- 
tion was bom because of the 
attitude of the British Govern- 
ment in supporting Federal 
Nigeria in the civil war during 
which a million Biafhros died 
of starvation. He flew Out 
there on an aid mission. 

"Thai had a very sharpen- 
ing effect, i realized it was not 
enough just to go on talking 
morality. You've actually got 
to look at the levers of power 
and who's pulling them and 
then get hold of them. The 
church has to pull them inihe 
direction of justice.” 

Such derisions did not ac- 


cord with traditional views on 
the role of a Catholic priest. 
Although attitudes to that 
have changed considerably 
since the Second Vatican 
Council there were still a 
number of prominent right- 
wing Catholics who put pres- 
sure on Cardinal Basil Hume 
over Kent's activity as general 
secretary of CND. Bruce Kent 
resigned his position as a paid 
employee of the secular orga- 
nization last year. It was, he 
insists, his own decision. He is 
now an elected vice-chairman 
of CND. The distinction has 
not silenced the critics but, 
according to one fellow priest 
it has given Cardinal Hume 
much firmer ground on which 
to defend the turbulent priest 

T owards the end of 
the morning's walk, 
he Kent came across 
a crumpled leaflet 
discarded by an un- 
impressed passer-by. It was 
one of those the deacon had 
been distributing, Bruce Kent 
read it with interest He had 
walked so well (hill-walking 
and friends, according to 
Who’s Who. are his 
recreations) that he entered 
the village of Lenmabago an 
hour ahead of schedule. He 
wandered into the little 12th 
century churchyard and sat 
down on a bench tomb. There 
he considered the leaflet and-, 
expressed astonishment at the 
vitriol his nuclear dissent 
generated in some quarters. 

"Some of those who oppose 
us are just paid propagandists. 
Others have vested interests. 
But many are people of good 
conscience, i think that in 
Britain there is a fear of *lhe 
other' and that it is felt that we 
are making it more likely that 
“the other* is going to domi- 
nate our lands and our people. 
So we are seen as*, kind of 
Trojan horse for an enemy 
and therefore much resented. 
What we may say on particu- 
lar weapons systems may be 
right, but they think that as a 
group we are about the busi- 
ness of collapsing western 
defence systems as we know 
them. 

“I always quote, from Ein- 
stein. who said: ‘With the 
splitting of the atom every- 
thing has changed except our 
modes of thinking, and thus 
we drift towards unparalleled 
disaster*." 

That was what CND still 
needed to convey to those 
people of good corrscience/He 
sat on the tomb and pondered. 
The Scottish morning air was 
soft and the sunshine gentler

' award-winning series 
on schizophrenia, 
reveals how potential 

killers are being sent 

out onto the streets 
and into harm’s way 


The ferry from 
Manhattan to 
Staten Island was 
passing the newly 
refurbished Stat- 
ue of Liberty last 
Monday when 
panic broke out 
among the 500 
passengers. Juan 
Gonzalez, a 43- 
. year-old Cuban 

' immigrant, was rushing round the 
decks brandishing a 24-inch pearl- 
bandied sword. Within moments 
he killed a man and a woman and 
wounded nine other people. 

He is one of the 7.500 homeless. 

■ people, many of them mentally ilL 

■ who spend their nights in New 
York shelters. An even larger 
number, frightened by the desper- 

’ ate conditions, prefer to sleep 
. ■ rough in the port. authority bus 
station oh 42nd Street. 

Gonzalez chose as his bedroom 
the Fort Washington shelter, an 
enormous drill hall in Harlem. 

’ which he shared with 900 other 
' down-and-outs. The hundreds of 
~ iron cots are arranged in neat rows, 
like a first-aid post after some great 
disaster. The dim lights are on all 
’ night There is the continual noise 
';of human torment — screams, 

, moans and shouting to imaginary 
" ‘ voices. Around the edge of this 
‘ great raft of beds, red-uniformed 
. attendants stand ready to sort out 
' the arguments and fights which 
' break out occasionally. 

The Thursday before the boat 
killings. Gonzalez had been the 

• centre of a disturbance. Attendants 
" called the police when he started 

• screaming: “I’m going to kill. God 

• told me to". The Presbyterian 
'• Hospital held him for 48 hours. 


Where death lies dormant the cavernous Fort Washington shelter, from which Juan Gonzalez (inset) set out on a ferry ride to catastrophe. How many more like him? 


recognized his symptoms as para- 
noid schizophrenia, and dis- 
charged him back on the street on 
Saturday night, suggesting he 
should seek out-patient treatment 
at Harlem Hospital. In New York, 
as in Britain, hospital policy is to 
discharge mentally-ill patients as 
quickly as possible: “It was a 
terrible mistake", admitted a psy- 
chiatrist at the Presbyterian 
Hospital 

On Monday, instead of visiting 
Harlem Hospital, Gonzalez, who. 
like many others, was probably too 
ill to realize he needed treatment, 
took out his sword and bought a 
ticket to Staten Island. He is now in 
King's County hospital. New York, 
undergoing a 30-day “evaluation". 

The case is typical of thousands, 
except that very few schizophrenia 
sufferers are violent, merely sad. In 
the United Stares, as in Briiain, 
pressure from well-meaning civil 
liberties campaigners has brought 
about the run-down or closure of 
mental hospitals before means of 
looking after the patients in the 
community have been provided. 
Some years ago there were 550.000 
beds in American mental hospitals 
to cater for two million schizophre- 
nia sufferers. Now there are only 
130.000. 

Sick people are being abandoned 
on the streets. Their presence — 
hundreds of thousands of them, 
hungry, dirty, deluded — haunts 
New York and the other big 
American cities. 

The scandal is so great that the 
mothers of this human flotsam are 
no longer willing to see their sons 
and daughters made victims of 
neglect. Their only choice is to keep 
their severely ill grown-up son or 
daughter at home, receiving no 


help, or to lie awake at night 
thinking of their child sleeping in a 
mass night shelter or worse. They 
have now become so desperate that 
they are forming groups for politi- 
cal action. The National Alliance 
for the Mentally 111 has increased 
the membership of its 500 affiliates 
by S3 per cent in the past year. 

“The families are angry and 
unwilling to remain passive”, says 
Dr Fuller Torrey. a specialist in the 
management of schizophrenia. 
“They are going to lobby, protest 


and fight for help for those whose 
minds have been damaged." 

One of the first of these protests 
took place a few weeks ago at the 
World Trade Centre in Manhattan. 
A group of 100 people, mostly 
women and dwarfed between the 
complex’s twin towers, waved 
crude home-made banners and 
placards, and collected signatures 
for a letter of protest to Governor 
Cuomo of New York State. 

“We made history", said their 
organizer. Isabelle Blau. “This is

From the heart: protesting parents Isabelle BLan, left, and Rose Lange 


the first time there has been a ’ 
protest in New York on behalf of 
the mentally ill.” She is a brave 
woman, divorced and working as a 
shop-assistant in Gimbals, a de- 
partment store in Manhattan. 

Her large, sad eyes betray the 
years of anguish as she watched 
first one. then a second son 
destroyed by schizophrenia. The 
elder boy. now 38. went to Israel 
hoping that work on a kibbutz 
would cure him. He has been in 
mental hospitals for years and his 
mother spends her three-week 
holiday each year visiting him. Her 
second son. ill for nine years, is 
closer at hand. He spent years in 
hospital, then discharged himself 
“The hospitals never look for them 
if they run away", says Isabelle. 

Frustrated by her experiences, 
she decided on ' stronger action. 
“The parents are too polite”, she 
says. Typing on her old portable, 
she sent letters to other parents. 

Soon there was a core of would- 
be militants. Two of her aides are 
Rita Kwiecinski and Rose Lange, 
ordinary, working-class women 
prepared to fight hand for their 
menially-ill children. They seem 
hardly the stuff of which great 
revolutions are made, but they are 
determined. “Governor Cuomo 
will hear more from us", they say. 

So will many other politicians, 
for another centre of direct action 
over schizophrenia is on Capitol 
Hill itself. The wives of six 
Congressmen, some of them moth-- 
ers of schizophrenics, have joined 
together to lobby for a better deal 
for the mentally ill. “Every time 
you look at a tramp or bum. you 
think that this guy had a mother" 
says Norma Lagqmarsino whose 
husband. Robert, is a Representa-, 


tive for California “It’s the women 
who live with it who are on the 
move. They are becoming more 
organized and more militant" 

Norma Lagomarsino is the most 
outspoken of the Capitol wives and 
describes how her son became ill 
when he was 1 6. hearing voices and 
believing people were trying to 
destroy him. For 1 2 years he was in 
and out of hospital. “He began to 
get better when we realized he was 
suffering from an illness and once 
his father accepted that be was not 
spoilt lazy or pretending", she 
says. “When we all realized it was 
some chemical malfunction for 
which no-one was to blame, he 
accepted the illness and the medi- 
cation. It’s just like diabetes. You 
develop a way of dealing with it 
and not concealing it" 

Nancy Domenici is the wife of 
Senator Peter Domenici of New 
Mexico, and mother of their right 
children, one of whom is disturbed. 
She has organized the lobbying 
wives from her home in Rockville. 
Washington. 

She arranged lectures on mental 
illness for the politicians on Capi- 
tol Hill, and has written to the 
committees responsible for setting 
budgets, asking for more money for 
research into mental illness. They 
have a considerable advantage as 
Peter Domenici and three other 
husbands serve on these 
committees. 

“Thv thing that convinced me to 
speak out", says Norma Lagomar- 
sino, “was the assassination at- 
tempt on President Reagan by a 
schizophrenic. Our son was in 
hospital at the time. But there were 
hundreds of mothers who did not 
know where their disturbed sons 
were and feared it could be them."

4 If a derision taken 
recently at Exeter Uni- 
versity were reflected 
in the world of sport, 
the World Cup might 
hare concluded with all par- 
titipating teams, in order of 
size of the countries repre- 
sented, receiving a small tro- 
phy. At Wimbledon the final 
ceremony could have con- 
sisted of all players receiving 
congratulations, lined up in 
order of height. 

The outcome of matches 
need not have been reported, 
although interested parties 
might have been free to make 
discreet inquiries. That way, 
invidious comparisons be- 
tween winners and losers 
could be avoided. 

Next week. Exeter Univer- 
sity will, within departments, 
graduate its students in al- 
phabetical order, and at the 
graduation ceremony their 
class of degree will not be 
indicated. 

Such classification has in 
the past produced a livelier 
round of applause, am those 
awarded Firsts have gone 
forward to receive their de- 
grees from the Chancellor, 
than for those at the end of a 
large department, awarded 
Thirds or Pass degrees. 

It seems that the Guild of 
Students, in consultation with 
sympathetic academics, has 
proposed the new procedure. 
Individual results will be 
known within departments or 
among friends. But from the 
point of view of parents, and 
the wider comm unity repre- 
sented at the ceremony, sach 
distinctions are apparently to 
be deliberately obscured. 

Everyone knows that there 
is no justice in die academic 
world. Some students are 
more effortlessly brilliant; 
some have predicted ques- 
tions more successfully than 
others; some have hay-fever, 
broken homes, unhappy love 
affairs. Some have worked 
strenuously, with disappoint- 
ing results. 

But neither is there neces- 
sarily justice in sporting con- 
tests. Decisions of referees 
may be open to dispute; 
athletes have off-days; condi- 
tions favour one rather than 
another. This is accepted; has 
it ever been seriously suggest- 
ed that it might be fairer if tire 
score were not to be reported ? 

The change iff practice at 
Exeter was passed through 
all die appropriate commit- 
tees and dedrion-making 
bodies, whose papers are 
doubtless readily available. 

It is possible, however, that 
many academics, who may 
have other reading priorities, 
are unaware of the innovation 
and hence of its sym- 
bolic significance. Whoj 
will value academic ex- 
cellence if the universi- 
ties do not ?

About 10 years ago the chief 
executive of one of Britain’s 
leading financial institutions 
leapt from his seat at the 
boardroom table and punched 
one of his colleagues on the 
1 jaw with great ferocity. 

The flailing director was 
normally a studious, urbane 
man but since he had started 
to face domestic as well as 
commercial problems, his 
family doctor prescribed a 
benzodiazipine (the Librium, 
Valium, Normison group) as a 
tranquillizer. The doctor for- 
got that in some patients who 
are tense, suffer controlled 
aggression or are hyperactive 
by nature, the drug can cause a 
paradoxical reaction by sup- 
pressing their inhibitions. 

Anxious patients, for simi- 
lar reasons, occasionally re- 
port an increase in anxiety, 
insomnia or nightmares. 
Short-acting benzodiazipines 
have been known to produce 
paranoia and changes in the 
senses of hearing, taste and

smell — some of the many side 
effects reported recently in the 
Adverse Drug Reaction Bulle- 
tin. 

Despite these occasional ill 
effects the benzodiazipine 
group remains very useful in 
medicine and has a therapeu- 
tic role well beyond sedation 
or tranquillization. Thou- 
sands of epileptics owe their 
lives and the preservation of 
their intellect to the drug. 

Patients regularly given too 
high a dose may show exces- 
sive sedation, impaired motor 
performance, problems in bal- 
ance and speech, double vi- 
sion. poor memory and 
concentration. 

It is always difficult to 
decide whether a tense, anx- 
ious patient is addicted to the 
drug or to the relief of tension 
which it brings. 


Can a lie detector tell lies? 



nowon 


The lie detector 
operates on the 
principle that 

an anxious per- 
son sweats 
imperceptibly 
when he or she 
tells a lie and this alters the 
conduction of electricity across 
the skin — the galvanic skin 
response. Its efficiency de- 
pends on the liar worrying 
about the lies. It does not work 
with somebody without con- 
science or a skilled liar. 

A report published in Hos- 
pital Doctor reviews work in 
tbs field by Dr John Beary of 
Georgetown University. He 
looked at 880 records which 
show that although the poly- 
graph, as the lie detector is 
called, measures various phys- 
iological responses, including 
heart rate, blood pressure, 
respiration rate and the gal- 
vanic skin response while the 


patient is being questioned, 
the results are tittle better, in 
Dr Beary’s view, than can be 
achieved by tossing a com.The 
polygraph is 76 per cent 
sensitive and 60 per cent 
specific; in other words, the 
equipment which generated 
the results in this study was 
prodoring a 40 per cent false 
positive rate — which means 
that a lot of people could be 
wrongly labelled as lying.

Claiming 
a stake 


Jaunty genealogist Hugh Peskett 
of Winchester returned yesterday 
from a month-long mission to 
America with The Great Billion 
Dollar Humphreys Heir question 
nearer an answer. Pelham Hum- 
phreys. a Texan rancher, died in 
1840 after a saloon bar shoot-out 
with no heirs — and the mystery 
of who should inherit remains 
unsolved to this day. It's of more 
than academic interest sines ofl 
was found on his land early this 
century and royalties to date total 
around $2 billion. Claims to the 
fortune have gushed and a re- 
cently-formed Humphreys Heir 
Association called in Peskett to 
trace other possible claimants. 
Yesterday, Peskett told me had 
traced at least 1,000 people with a 
good chance of winning a share 
and had “found a chime in the 
armour" of the oil giant Chevron, 
which daims to own all rights to 
the land. Anoraolies in the orig- 
inal land deeds, he said, could 
undermine Chevron's case. The 
thousand Humphreys now appear 
heartened enough to take on 
Chevron in the courts, using 
lawyers templed by a share of the 
fortune if they are successful.

Buckingham Palace tells me that

the City of God. On the face of it, 
the news contradicts my story last

the Arab world. Prince Andrew 
and Sarah Ferguson had requested 
a psalm which made no mention 
of Israel. Further inquiries, how- 
ever. reveal that only two verses 
will be sung - neither containing 
the words Zion. Israel or anything 
remotely contentious. What's 
more, the Archbishop of Canter- 
bury. conducting the service, 
could choose to announce the 
psalm by its number, 48. instead 
of its title. I shall be listening 
carefully on the day.

There is no machinery to extract

Gulag, to be shown on Channel 4 
on Saturday. It shows pictures, 
some taken from Soviet tele- 
vision, some shot clandestinely at 
considerable risk, of the gulag as it 
is today. The image is not a pretty 
one. Tbe unofficially shot film and 
the interviews with relatively re- 
cent survivors of the Soviet prison 
regime are both persuasive in 
shedding fight on unknown as- 
pects of the story. 

The most remarkable part of the 
documentary deals with a highly 
sensitive and secret topic — ura- 
nium mining by prison labour.^ 
The Soviet system uses prisoners 
to mine uranium partly as a 


The death rate is high. So is the 
suicide rate - many prisoners 
preferring suicide to slow radi- 
ation poisoning. Medical support 
is worse then useless. There is 
lenative evidence that instead of 
offering treatment, some medical 
personnel regard the prisoners as 
guinea pigs and observe the 
progress of radiation sickness 
instead. 


Tbe upshot is that the gulag is 
hardly changed from the death 
camps set up half a century ago. 
Brutality and appalling conditions 
are the norm. The guards appear 
to have an informal licence to kill 
prisoners. The prisoners are 
treated, as they have been for 
decades, merely as economic units 
from whom the maximum 


amount of work is to be extracted 
and are then to be discarded. 

The cynicism of the system is 
reflected in the way that regula- 
tions are applied. Failure to meet a 
heavy work quota, often in appall- 
ing conditions, such as having to 
dig soil frozen three feet deep with 
a spade, results in solitary confine- 
ment and starvation rations. This 
further undermines the prisoner’s 
constitution and is, for all prac- 
tical purposes, a death sentence. It 
is next to impossible to escape this 
vicious circle. 

The punishment cells at Vladi- 
mir prison, east of Moscow, are 
specifically designed to break pris- 
oners physically. They are too 
small to allow a man to lie down 
and are deliberately overheated or 
kept frozen. One former inmate 
describes how be was kept in such 
a cell for 1 5 days at 5 degrees C af- 
ter bis warm clothing had been 
taken away. He shivered for the 
entire time he was there and 
afterwards had a stroke. 

The medical staff are as much a 
pan of the system as the guards. 
One doctor, to whom a prisoner 
appealed for help, declared, “First 
I am a Chekist a KGB agent and 


then I am a doctor". Brutality is 
not a monopoly of the guards. 
Some prisoners, common crim- 
inals, are permitted to kill* 
politicals who come to be regarded 
as “awkward”. 

Tbe documentary also produces 
evidence that the total number of 
executions in the Soviet Union is 
far higher than the official figure of 
about 30 a year. The real figure, 
calculated * on the basis of 
confidential information from So- 
viet district courts and appeal 
courts, is between 865 and 895. 
Gorbachov's campaign against 
“speculators”, who can face the 
death penalty, ccould well raise 
this to an even higher level. 

There is something to be said 
for the argument that any society 
ran be judged by how it treats its 
prisoners. The emphasis is not on 
spectacular achievements but on 
the dark side, where state control 
is complete. The individual 


F. A. M ann puts the case against a combined legal profession 


Brief for a separate Bar 


Despite the unanimous conclu- 
sions of the report of the Royal 
Commission on Legal Services 
only seven years ago, there is 
renewed discussion about fusion 
of the legal profession. There are 
suggestions that every lawyer be 
educated in a solicitor's office for 
four years and become a 
“specialist" by satisfying unspeci- 
fied “objective criteria, including 
examinations"; that both bar- 
risters and solicitors have the right 
of audience in all courts, but in 
higher courts only in so far as (hey 
are qualified as specialists; and 
that the public have direct access 
to the Bar. 

Could such changes be rec- 
onciled with the present English 
legal system, or would they bring 
about a different system the 
precise nature of which cannot be 
assessed? 

The existing system is charac- 
terized by a number of distinctive 
features which do exist nowhere 
else except in some -Common- 
wealth countries. At present the 
young barrister, having passed his 
examination, learns his trade and 
its professional standards by prac- 
tical experience in his pupil- 
master’s chambers, by sitting in 
court, listening to his elders, 
watching tbe judges and after 
some time starting with small 
cases. In the course of time he 
achieves experience (which cannot 
be acquired by passing examina- 
tions), becomes known to the 
judiciary and, if he is good, gains 
its confidence. 

As the barristers practice grows, 
his skill and authority widen and 
he can cope with the peculiarities 
of the system, some of which 
should be emphasized. (The right 
of direct access by the public is 
really a minor point it is a right 
claimed by accountants, patent 
agents and surveyors; the layman 
in the strict sense is rarely able to 
present relevant matter.) 

In the first place, all English 
proceedings are essentially oral. 
The advocate faces questions, 
criticism, tests, challenges with 
which he is called upon to deal on 
the spot. He cannot say: “I shall 
revert to this point in my next 
brief." He has no second chance. 

Secondly, the English trial con- 
sists of a single and continuous 
hearing. There are no night sit- 
tings such as occur on the Conti- 
nent which are bound to leave the 
participants exhausted and unable 
to do justice. The parties and their 
representatives will have to be 
available, whatever the duration 
of the trial. 

There is in England neither in 
criminal nor in civil cases room 
for such disgraceful occurrences as 
the trial in West Germany of 
Count Lambsdorff, the ex-Min- 
ister of Economics, a director of 
the Dresdner Bank and others, 
which has continued since last 
October for about two days a 
week, principally in order to 
permit the lawyers (who are 
solicitors with the right of audi- 
ence or barristers with access to 
the public) to take care of their 
general practice. 

Nor is there any such largely 
futile oral hearing as occurs in 
civil proceedings in the United 
States, where each side has a fixed 
time for oral “argument". This 
frequently lasts less than an hour, 
even in important cases, and this 
time is usually taken up by 
questions put by the court, so that

THE LAST SELL

“ Ah ! I knowed it was ! ” 

“ Then why did you ask ? ” 

“’Cos I wanted to have counsel's opinion ! ” 


a logical systematic submission is 
impossible. Nor is there such 
ineffectual cross-examination as is 
usual in the US (on the Continent 
witnesses are primarily interro- 
gated by the court, cross-examina- 
tion being unknown). 

Thirdly, in this country's civil 
proceedings the judge who starts a 
case is in principle unconversant 
with it. The case has to be 
explained to him, but his mind is 
not made up before the end of the 
hearing. (This point, incidentally, 
gives strong support to the ad- 
versarial system of advocacy 
which has recently been 
unfavourably compared to the 
inquisitorial one: a judge who 
knows the papers and acts as 
inquisitor has inevitably formed a 
view and no longer has an open 
mind.) 

Fourthly, most laymen will be 
surprised to learn that the English 
legal system does not require 
judges to know the law. Rather the 
law is submitted to them — and 
what has not been submitted does 
not form the basis of decision. It is 
true that a judge may draw 
attention to this or that point, to a 
decision, to academic writing. He 
may even in exceptional circum- 
stances make suggestions. But the 
burden of finding and explaining 
the law and suggesting its applica- 
tion to the case in hand is cast 
upon the advocates. This is wholly 
different on the Continent where 
the law is found by the court (jura 
novit curia, as the old Latin 
maxim puis it). 

Fifthly, if you add up all persons 
exercising full-time judicial func- 
tions in England and Wales, you 
are unlikely to reach a higher 
figure than about 2,000. In Ger- 
many there are 15.000 judges. In 
France the 120 judges of the Court 


of Appeal for the Paris region 
alone are supposed to deal with no 
fewer than 36,000 appeals a year. 
The Cour de Cassation. France’s 
highest tribunal, has 18,000 ap- 
peals a year. In England the Court 
of Appeal. Civil Division, has 
about 1.500, though the Criminal 
Division has about 8,000, and the 
House of Lords hears around 80 
cases a year. In the United Stales 
judges have "clerks”, i.e. assis- 
tants who prepare and frequently 
write judgments which their mas- 
ters often merely adopt and which 
a qualified observer can easily 
recognize as the work of a begin- 
ner. 


that any proposal to change the 
legal profession must be viewed. 
Can the system be maintained if 
solicitors acquire the right of 
audience in higher courts? If not, 
what is going to take its place? And 
will it provide quicker and less 
expensive, but equally efficient 
and impartial justice? 

The present system is unlikely 
to continue if solicitors obtain the 
right of audience in higher courts. 
The number of solicitors at 
present who are able to submit 
and argue a case, to expose the 
facts and examine and cross- 
examine witnesses is a tiny 
proportion of the total of almost 
50,000 in practice. So tbe 
solicitor’s right of audience will 
lead to a multiplicity of judges. 
The judges will have to do their 
own research and there will not be 
that sifting process which long and 
varied experience, specialist 
knowledge, familiarity with 
prevailing practices, judicial re- 
actions and personalities pro- 
vides. 

That will lead to the American 
or Continental systems — in 
particular to interrupted hearings 
and a larger number of appeals — 
and in all probability to largely 
written proceedings, because the 
advocate-solicitor, whose experi- 
ence is necessarily limited, simply 
cannot afford the time to sit in 
court for long and will rarely be 
able or willing to deal with the 
facts and the law. No “litigation 
solicitor" can do all the prepara- 
tory work and be regularly in 
court He needs the help which the 
barrister now receives from the 
solicitor. But look at the Law 
Reports and ask yourself how 
many will be able to present and 
argue the cases there reported. If 
the reforming solicitors reply that 
in these cases they would employ 
members of a residuary Bar (if it 
survived) they overlook the prob- 
lem of how the latter could, under 


a different system, acquire the 
peculiar qualifications which bar- 


The wholly different English 
conditions are due to many rea- 
sons, expense being a regrettable, 
but by no means principal one. 
The principal one is the process of 
sifting upon which a highly experi- 
enced Bar embarks, upon which 
much of its reputation depends 
and which keeps litigation within 
moderate bounds. There is no 
such attitude as the Continental 
lawyer's advice: “Let us issue a 
writ and see what happens. Hie 
court will tell us." Consequently 
the Continental judge sits once or 
twice a week in court and during 
the remaining time studies papers, 
researches the law, confers with 
his colleagues and writes judg- 
ments. The English judge sits 
every day and writes judgments in 
his so-called spare time. They are 
his personal responsibility and it is 
his name which becomes history. 
It is not the anonymity of the 13th 
Chamber of the District Court in 
Hamburg, or the 25th Chamber of 
the Court of Appeal in Paris, 
which protects his errors, mis- 
understandings or failings. 


peculiar qualifications which bar- 
risters possess at present They 
must be given the opportunity of 
starting with the simple case and 
progressing over a period of years. 
But if the simple cases are done by 
solicitor-advocates, where can 
barristers learn? 

This is not to say that countries 
with a different legal system do 
not achieve a wholly satisfactory 
standard of justice. Nor is it to say 
that it would not be possible to 
devise a different system in En- 
gland which would work satisfac- 
torily. Nor should some carefully 
considered reforms be a priori 
excluded, though it would be 
ironic if we adopted the largely 
written American procedure at the 
very time when many American 
lawyers are becoming aware of the 
disadvantages of their procedure 
and the attractions of the English 
one. 

The point of these remarks is 
that you cannot to any substantial 
extent tinker with the present legal 
system without jeopardizing it. 
and that if you wish to introduce 
fusion or something approaching 
it you must start by remodelling 
the present legal system as a 
whole, adapting it to conditions 
which would be fundamentally 
different from those at present.

Confronting the cure to drug addiction 


Britain's most currently cele- 
brated drug addict. Boy George 
O'Dowd, now reportedly lan- 
guishes in Britain's most currently 
celebrated drug clinic St Andrew's 
Private Hospital in Northampton, 
might care to ponder the words of 
Dr Maurice Lipsedgc consultant 
psychiatrist in the department of 
Psychological Medicine at Guy's 
Hospital. 


drugs dinic in Surrey.The Ditzlers 
promote a treatment which is 
itself drag-free. Their programme 
empasizes counselling and 


psychotherapy, and tries to make 
the addict face the conseauences 


me aaaici lace me consequences 
of his addiction, with the help of 
his family and former addicts. 


“You cannot cure a drug addict 
with another drug". Lipsedge says. 
“Addicts are ' best helped by 
confrontation, by being en- 
couraged to face reality and by 
having their self-deception chal- 
lenged. The answer to the problem 
lies ultimately in the personality of 
the addict.” 

Lipsedge has wrirten the fore- 
word to a book* about addiction 
and its cure by an American 
psychologist. Jim DitzJer. and his 
wife Joyce, who run a private 


"Far too many NHS clinics still 
prescribe substitute drugs to help 
addicts give up heroin, for 
example." Lipsedge says. "It’s like 
trying to cure an alcoholic by 
giving him vodka instead of gin. It 
only encourages addicts to go on 
feeling there is a chemical solution 
to their problems. The NHS needs 
to turn its back on chemical 
solutions and have a fundamental 
rethink." 

Lipsedge is particularly scathing 
about the continued prescribing of 
methadone, the heroin substitute 
long thought to be the “answer? to 
heroin addiction because its use 


made heroin withdrawal symp- 
toms more bearable. 

"People sell their methadone 
and buy heroin". Lipsedge says, 
“or they become methadone ad- 
dicts. Now an attempt is being 
made to popularize another sub- 
stitute drug, naltrexone. It is said 
to block the effects of heroin: if 
you take both it and heroin, you 
don't feel good. It may or may not 
be helpful with heroin, but it does 
nothing for polydrug abuse. The 
vast majority of drug users in tb>s 
country take more than one drug, 
from cocaine to tranquillizers to 
anything they can get" 

The Ditzlers claim a success rate 
of more than 50 per cent, which is 
considered remarkable. Their pro- 
gramme bears many similarities to 
that of Alcoholics Anonymous, 
and Lipsedge is convinced that 
this approach is the only one 
which offers real hope of a cure. 


Boy George, it is reported, is 
being treated with Dr Meg Patt- 
erson's "little black box", in which 
electrodes strapped to the head 
send impulses into the brain. 
Lipsedge is unwilling to comment 
publicly on another doctor’s meth- 
ods but. speaking of "alternative” 
approaches in general, he says; “I 
do not think paramedical treat- 
ments, such as hynosrs or aversion 
therapy, have any real value." 

The drawback with the Ditzler 
method is that the addict has to 
pay for it. “It is unfortunate that 
this approach is not more widely 
available through the NHS”, 
Lipsedge says. "The realization is 
slowly dawning that this is the 
only way to cure drug addiction, 
which is now an epidemic, but the 
resources are just not there.”

Ministers are rightly - concerned 
about a public tendency to take 
their achievements for granted. 
Conservative economics may 
have spread to socialist France,. 
Australia and throughout the 
OECD, but clear new selling 
points must be identified in social 
.policy areas broadly, untouched-' 
since 1979. 

Sadly, little attention has been 
devoted to the outcome of ideas.. 
There has been minimal analysis 
even of the two chief and un- 
expected successes of Thatcherite 
policy innovation: privatization 
and legal reform Of the trades 
■unions. ■ - , • 

Nationalized industries, in the 
1979 scheme of things, 
underperformed because they . 
were badly managed and were 
subject to government interfer- 
ence. Left at arm's length, their 
managers would be able to man- 
age and all would be welL It took 
two years of increasing losses and 
subsidization before the potential 
of privatization, as a revenue 
raiser, a check on unquantifiable 
future public spending and, ul- 
timately, as a route to wider 
-individual ownership, was folly 
appreciated. 

Equally, for two years. James 
Prior, as Employment Secretary, 
strove to confine trades union law 
reform to the modest picketing 
code of practice and slight refine- - 
meat of the scope of secondaiy * 
picketing contained m his Act of . 
1980. Only an unprecedented 
alliance of- the Prime Minister, 
employers, policy organizations, 
backbenchers and peers led ul- 
timately to the critical change — 
the reintegration of trades unions 
within the ordinary law. 

There were plenty of other 
options. The managerial approach 
originally favoured for national- 
ized industries has subsequently 
been followed in the National 
Health Service. It has proved that 
a resource allocation working 
party can be no substitute for the 
individual consumer choice. 

The managerial approach has 
been tried, too. in the unemploy- 
ment benefit system, where a 
Rayner review suggested that it 
would be more cost effective not 
to require benefit claimants to 
register for work. The mistake 
undoubtedly added tens of thou- 
sands to the unemployment fig- 
ure; it is now being expensively 
unscrambled. 

" The very modest achievements 
of Raynerism across central gov- 
ernment and the current diffi- 
culties of the managerial approach 
in the NHS, reveal the limitations 
of approaches based on the more 
efficient administration of social- 
ized systems. 

The two Thatcher successes 
were successes precisely because 
they cut free from administrative 
tinkering to refashion the struc- 
tures of choice and ownership. 
They followed a simple political ■ 
equation: signals + interests + 
machinery = policy success. 

It seems obvious to suggest that 
reforming policies will not grip if 
the signals seen by voters suggest 
that there is no problem which 


necessitates reform, or that 'in- 
creased slate diversion and re- 
allocation of resources is the only 
solution. 

If signals tell voters , that, for 
example, it pays to vote for high- 
spending local councils because 
business and a handful , of rate- 
payers will pick up the - biff, a 
surprisingly large- number of vot- 
ers will vote for high-spending an d 
free services. Mrs Thatcher, has 
picked up that- challenge', by 
broadening the base of those who 
perceive signals of excessive 
spending and whose interests tell 
them to do something about it, 
through the proposed community 
charge: . ... 

As for- interests, it is a Toy 
mistake, to assume that an appeal 
to individual, interests win gen- 
erate a socialistic response, ‘ and 
that only in the name of austerity 
will policies that abjure profligate 
public spending- prevail The un- 


expected lesson of privatization 
and trades union reform is that 


and trades union irforih is that 
Mrs Thatcher heals to build a 
base of hew real interests in 
support of social policy solutions, 
to rephrate the new mtercsts on 
which : her economic policy 
achievements have been built. 
They would replace a notional, 
generalized stake . in. systems 
founded on doubtful accounting, 
retrospective -financing, and in- 
visible and incomprehensible 
redistribution of incomes, kept in 
some sort of spending check by 
arbitrary and politically Hamagmg 
cash limits. 

■ But h is clear that in the. present 
health, welfare and education 
systems, the perceived signals and 
interests of millions of voters say. 
vote against Mrs Thatcher. 

Privatization relied, heavily on 
the contribution of outside -think 
tanks and the work of special 
advisers in tire Treasury, itself a 
department unusually wefl : eq- 
uipped with officials capable of 
being redeployed to major, cross- 
department policy innovation. 
Trades union reform had to. be 
“privatized” to the extent that tire 
Department of Employment 
played scarcely a part in the 
development of policy which ted 
to the 1 982 Employment Act 

Today the polity support sys- 
tems available to ministers are 
desperately weak. The Central 
Policy Review Staff has been 
disbanded Special advisers are 
few in number and tied to the 
transitory appointments of in- 
dividual ministers. Labour, Lib- 
erals and SDP are all setting up 
ministerial cabinets ad speed im- 
plementation of new policy should 
they be in power. 

The scale of the social policy 
problems faring Mrs Thatcher are 
large enough to make it highly 
unlikely that solutions can emerge 
by chance, accident or good 
fortune; By refashioning the sig- 
nals received by voters and tying 
their legitimate interests and 
expectations to an effective 
mechanism that would deliver the 
answers, the successes of 1979-883 
could be repeated.

Henry Stanhope 


Namesmanship 
for beginners 


An American academic, writing in 
the New York Times the other day, 
complained about being called 
"Jiff”. It was her name all right, 
but what riled her was that the 
junior bank clerk who used it had 
not previously known her from 
Adam — or, in her case. Eve. 

The lady should try living over 
here. In the US they might use first 
names more often, but at least 
they do so easily, as if they mean 
it. “Hiya er. er. Henry”, says tbe 
president of Ford or Lockheed, or 
Kentucky Fried Chicken, advanc- 
ing like a great friendly bear with 
outstretched paw. “Call me Jim” 

In Britain, first names are all 
part of the class structure, like 
accents and schools. A delegate at 
the annual conference of the TUC 
could even score a point or two by 
referring to tire general secretary as 
“Norman". But not so a member 
of the House of Laity who. in the 
middle of the General Synod, 
railed the Archbishop of Canter- 
bury “Bob." 

An elderly aunt, addressed by 
her first name recently by a new 
young doctor less than half her 
age, snapped back in true Lady 
Bracknell style “ And where does 
this ‘Dorothy’ come from, pray?” 
Tbe hapless medic, missing tbe 
point, picked up her card. "From 
here”, he said brightly. “On your . 
card. It's your name." 

He was. might one aigue, just 
trying to be nice. Not a bit of it. He 
was establishing — or trying to — 
an updated version of the master- 
servant relationship between, say, 
Bertie Wooster who was called 
"sir” and Jeeves, who was always 
called "Jeeves". If he had said: 
"My name's Keith", he might 
have been excused. But he would 
no more have dreamed of doing 
that than the Master in Upstairs 
Downstairs would have consid- 
ered joining his butler Hudson for 
a pint in the local pub. The doctor 
expected to be called “Doctor." 

The point about using 
someone's first name is that it 
should at least be mutual. You 
might not particularly like being 
called “Fred" by someone who 
until five minutes before was a 
total stranger, but at least, if he 
says "I'm Arthur” you can feel on 
equal terms. Nurses can just about 


names, they don’t mind patients 
doing the same. (A patient lying in 
bed, muffled in bandages like a 
Punch cartoon, is hardly in a 
position to complain anyway.) 
Still less able to protest is tire 
young subaltern who is addressed 
as “Simon" or whatever by the 
general. This is not an invitation 
to be on intimate terms with the 
divisional commander. It's merely 
the lop man's way of showing 
friendship to the lower orders. The. 
Army has to some extent got 
round this by referring to senior 
officers, in the third person. any- 
way, by their Christian name 
prefaced fay their rank. Thus 
General Sir Nigel BagnaU, the 
present Chief of the General Staff, 
might be known to his subordi- 
nates as “General Niger —though 
face-to-face only as “General" 
“CCS", or "Sir". 

The Army is of course a 
hierarchical society — about as 
hierarchical as Fleet Street is not. 
Even there, the occasional re- 
porter will stoop to addressing his 
interviewee as “Sir” in his anxiety 
to win favour on a story, like a 
spaniel begging for a biscuit But 
it's a bad and debasing principle. 

People who use one's first name 
without dreaming for one moment 

that the familiarity might be 

reciprocated are like, those who 
speak loudly in favour of preserv- 
ing regional accents when they 
don't have one themselves. 

ft is hard to recall Professor 
Higgins bring played by -anyone 
with a less than Rex Harrison 

' accent. Henry Higgins was a toff. 

who called Miss DooIinle^Eliza” 
and studied her tonal cadences, 
but would have been outraged had 
she turned round and called him 


“Enery"m return. “Guv",“Prof\ 
“Ducks" or any other Cockney 


get away with it. because although 
they often tend now, to use first 


“Ducks” or any other Cockney 
endearment might have been 
permissibter Higgins called Pick- 
ering “Pickering” — bui not as a 
master commanding a member of 
tire lower orders, rather as one 
clubman greeting another, years 
after prep school together. -The 
difference again was that Pick- 
ering called itim , “Higgins" in 
return.' . . . . 

So next time our American 
.friend snaps. “CaU me Madam",, 
let her spare a, thought for us. 
Life's modi more, complicated 
here. -

is part of a wider concern. Six 
m ?, n ^ ls have passed since the 
collapse of oil prices. But the 
expected post-oil boom for the 
* world economy has still to 
snow. Falling share prices may 
be no more than an expression 
of impatience, of hopes de- 
ferred. The danger is of a 
temporary loss, of financial 
market confidence extending 
outwards into the real econ- 
omy, to become self- fulfilling . 

When share prices on Wall 
Street began to fell on Mon- 
day. three fectors could be 
detected. The. Graram- 
Rudman plan for reducing the 
United States federal budget 
deficit had been declared un- 
constitutional by the Supreme 
Court. There was increasing 
evidence of economic weak- 
ness. which would be 
^ exacerabted by the interest rate 
consequences of a failure to 
cut the budget deficit. And. 
perhaps most importantly. 
Wall Street, in common with 
stock markets around the 
world, had experienced a very 
strong rise and was due for a 
correction. 

In London, with the excep- 
tion of the special factor of the 
budget deficit the same con- 
cerns were present Share 
prices, until very recently, 
were marked up in anticipa- 
tion of the economic recovery 
that was to have been asso- 
ciated with the new cheap oil 
era. Government bonds 
moved sharply higher in the 
.♦ expectation of lower interest 
rates that were to have 
accompanied the major fell in 
world inflation. But in neither 
case, so far. has expectation 
matched reality: 

When oil prices fell from 
$30 to $10 a barrel last winter, 
a fell which may not yet have 
come to an end. the con- 
sequences were quickly fore: 
seen in lower world inflation 
and stronger growth. The infla- 


aimost immediately but 
growth, it was recognised 
would take a little longer. 

And so it has ban. Figures 
to be published todav will 
show that the inflation rate in 
Britain has fallen to about 2.5 
per cent the lowest for nearly 
30 years. In other countries, 
notably - Germany, the price 
level is felling. 

Central banks have not 
however, responded to declin- 
ing inflation with a 
corresponding reduction in in- 
terest rates, confounding the 
expectations of the bond mar- 
kets. The inflation spectre of 
the past 15 years looms large 
enough to persuade policy- 
makersnot to take risks. Cheap 
oil should mean permanent 
low inflation, ft is argued, and 
not just a temporary dip in the 
inflation rate. 

The impatience of financial 
markets, on one level has 
good cause. Base rates in 
Britain of 10 per cent imply a 
punishingly high real interest 
rate when taken in conjunc- 
tion with inflation of 2.5 per 
cent. In Germany, interest 
rates of 4 or 5 per cent sit 
uneasily alongside sub-zero 
inflation. In the United States, 
the Federal Reserve Board has 
been fighting a determined 
battle, which it appears des- 
tined to lose, to keep interest 
rates high. 

It would be wrong, however, 
to view the pause in economic 
growth which has occurred 
since the winter as due to 
excessively tight monetary 
policy. The balance of the 
evidence, in feet, is tipped in 
favour of the view that mone- 
tary policy has been rather 
loose. 

It is important to remember 
that the' mechanism for the 
boost to growth from lower oil 
prices could not operate in- 
stantaneously. The initial ef- 
fects of lower oil prices was to 
cut off export markets in the

significance is both practical 
and emotional, and its im- 
plications go far beyond the 
borders of the Arab world. ' 

Once upon a time the Pal- 
estine Liberation Organization 
was regarded as the doyen of 
radical terrorist organizations. 
Its training camps were the 
destination of every aspiring 
terrorist. Its fingerprints were 
detected, rightly or wrongly, 
on the discarded pin of every 
terrorist grenade. Its leader, 
: Yassir Arafat, was invited to 
address the United Nations. 

Today, the PLO is a shadow 
of its former self. Its leadership 
is divided, several times over. 
Arafat is no longer the un- 
!con tested focus of Arab 
unanimity. Now, with the loss 
of its base in Jordan — the 
Country many Arabs see as the 
closest the Palestinians will 
-come to having a homeland — 
-the PLO has lost its last 
’legitimate foothold in the area. 

. The immediate motive for 
Jordan’s break with the PLO, 
or rather with that part of it led 
by Yassir Arafat, was the 
:PLO’s condemnation of 
Jordan's alleged support for a 
rival PLO faction. But it would 
-have taken more than words 
spoken in anger to break so 
long-standing an alignment. In 
feel the seeds of disenchant- 


ment were sown when Arafat 
thwarted King Husain's initia- 
tive on the Israeli-occupied 
West Bank earlier this year. 
From then on the fortunes of 
Arafat’s PLO, which had 
jrtarted to recover from the 
numiliation in Beirut four 
years ago, have been in de- 
cline. 

The brutal truth is that while 
the Middle East situation has 
moved on since Arafat's hey- 
day. the Palestine Liberation 
Organization under his tute- 
lage has not Rejectiomsm 
may be going out of fashion 
among Arab states, but Arafat 
still insists that he cannot deal 
even indirectly, with Israel He 
still insists on nothing less 
than an independent Palestin- 
ian homeland. But the PLO’s 
territorial position is weaker 
than it has. been for years. It is 
now effectively banished to 
Tunisia, fer from its tra- 
ditional theatre of operations. 

Moreoever, Jordan is only 
the latest of the Arab countries 
to have decided that the PLO, 
at least so long as Arafat 
remains leader, no longer 
represents a force for Arab 
unity. Syria has recognized 
exactly that in Lebanon, where 
it has risked military interven- 
tion to prevent the PLO’s 
return. Saudi Arabia appears 
open to suggestions that its 
financial support for Arafat 
might be scaled down. And 
Egypt, once the pariah of the 
Arab world for signing the 
Camp David agreement, is 


being tentatively welcomed 
back into the fold. Last week, 
the Egyptian paper Al Ahram 
published an interview with 
King Fahd of Saudi Arabia, its 
first for many years. 

A new. superficially more 
amenable. Arab grouping ap- 
pears to be in the making, with 
the recently established Syr- 
ian-Jordanian axis at its cen- 
tre. It is united by a pragmatic 
reluctance to underwrite 
Arafat's intransigence over a 
Palestinian homeland and a 
new-found (post-Libya?) 
abhorrence of his methods. 
For the first time since Camp 
David, there is the distant 
prospect of an Arab consensus: 
this time against, rather than 
for. Arafat 

The likely consequences of 
this embryonic realignment 
are far-reaching and generally 
welcome — though the Middle 
East repeatedly confounds 
optimistic predictions. In the 
long term, they could include a 
more comfortable, if hardly 
secure, existence for Israel 
within its existing borders, and 
the eventual reunification of 
the Palestinians around a 
more flexible PLO leadership. 

In the short-term, however, 
Arafat and his men are likely 
to resort to more desperate 
measures as they try to restore 
their image and maintain a 
presence nearer to their no- 
tional homeland. Yesterday’s 
attempt to land fighters in 
Lebanon could be only the 
beginning of a long and bitter 
campaign.

oil producing nations. Thus, 
both Germany and Japan, 
because of reduced export 
volumes, experienced a de- 
cline in gross national product 
in the first quarter of this year. 
In Britain, the drop in North 
Sea profits and investment 
added to these effects. 

A secondary pause, as peo- 
ple made sure that the marked 
fell in oil prices was not 
followed by an equally sharp 
rise, was also inevitable. But 
that too is now over. The 
economy, both here and over- 
seas. is now poised for. to use ■ 
the Chancellor’s phrase, a 
vigorous resumption of 
growth. 

But growth requires con- 
fidence among the people who 
make the real decisions — the 
businessmen who invest and 
the consumers who spead. A 
spreading of the loss of con- 
fidence which affected finan- 
cial markets particularly badly 
earlier this week could mean 
that the growth opportunity is 
missed. 

There are indications that 
where employment derisions 
are concerned, businessmen 
require a sort of super-con- 
fidence. Successive surveys, 
from the Confederation of 
British Industry, the Occupa- 
tions Study Group and. this 
week, from the Institute for 
Employment Research, sug- 
gest that British employers are 
not sufficiently optimistic 
about long-term economic 
prospects, or their own ability 
to win back market share, to 
expand employment signifi- 
cantly. Such confidence could 
as well emerge from a temper- 
ing of wage demands, as 
Government and CBI partici- 
pants at this week’s National 
Economic Development 
Council meeting agreed. But it 
is needed if the chances of 
more robust growth now are to 
be translated into lower un- 
employment in the coming 
months. 


From Ms Joe Parham 
Sir. Your leader today (July g) 
"Drugs and the gallows", is so 
astonishing that I must take issue 
with you. even though Kevin 
Barlow and Brian Chambers are 
alreadv dead. 

Attempts to point out to the 
Malaysian Pardons Board that 
justice was not being done were 
not "patronising implications 
about the quality of justice in 
Malaysia". They were made in the 
knowledge that at least one of the 
convictions was unsafe. 

No one in his or her right mind 
approves of heroin smuggling. No 
society in its right mind approves 
of capital punishment. 
Yesterday's execution is. in the 
, words of Kevin Barlow’s lawyer. 
Mr Karpal Singh, a scandal which 
has brought shame to Malaysia. 

If. as the Malaysian authorities 
defensively reiterate. Kevin Bar- 
low and Brian Chambers were 
subject to exactly the same judicial 
process as that enjoyed by Malay- 
sians . then all 1 can say is God 
help the Malaysians. 

Yours faithfully.

From Sir Eldon Griffiths. MP for 
Bury St Edmunds (Conservative) 
Sir.’ People like me who believe, 
no matter how reluctantly, that 
the death penalty can — and does 

— deter, can scarcely avoid re- 
examining our consciences in light 
of the worldwide publicity 
surrounding Malaysia’s execution 
of the two convicted Australian 
drug traffickers. Those gruesome 
TV pictures of the corpses, not to 
speak of their relatives' public 
agonising must surely have 
brought home to even the most 
convinced "hanger* the dread 
reality of the capital sentence. 

Yei there is one wager I would 
offer with confidence to the af- 
fronted abolitionists, among them 
the Prime Minister of Australia. 
Very few Western visitors to 
Malaysia over the next few 
months will. I bet turn their 
hands to buying and selling co- 
caine. 

Medical exchange 

From Professor J. B* Boag 
Sir. In your correspondent's report 
(June 21) of our medical exchange 
visit to the Soviet Union there is 
one point I should like to correct. 
Our group of doctors made no 
request to visit Hospital No 6 
where the Chernobyl patients are 
being cared for. as none of us had 
the special expertise to offer 
advice or assistance, which would 
have been the only justification 
for requesting such a visit 
Our itinerary had been planned 
long before the Chernobyl disaster 
and we were welcomed in all those 
hospitals and institutes — in 
Moscow. Leningrad and Yaroslavl 

— to which we had requested 
access. 

Yours etc.

Boarding for all 

From Professor John A. Doris 
Sir. One side-effect of the cost of a 
public school education is that it 
leads middle-class families to 
strive for higher incomes than 
they would otherwise need, thus 
making them anxious to preserve 
an income differential based on 
class and not necessarily related to 
social usefulness. Could I suggest 
that the solution might be not to 
abolish such schools out of hand, 
with their fine record and tra- 
ditions. but to lam them into sixth 
form boarding colleges, as was 
done at Dartmouth many years 
ago? 

Thirteen years is. in my view, 
too young an age for boarding but 
by sixteen many if not most 
adolescents, having found their 
own values, could do with the 
experience of a structured educa- 
tional environment away from 

Neglect at Wareham 

From Mr T. J. Driver 
Sir. The letter from Mr G. H. 
Osborn (June 21) overlooks the 
fact that, as a monument in an 
urban area, the Wareham town 
walls are much used for various 
recreational purposes which 
means sadly that in places erosion 
has occurred and is probably 
inevitable, as is litter. 

This and the need to ensure that 
routine grass-cutting etc strikes a 
balance between preserving the 
monument and keeping it tidy, 
and nature-conservation aspects, 
means that maintenance in the 
short and long term is more cosily 
than for other monuments. It is 
therefore by far the most expen- 
sive area of open space that 
Purbeck District Council has to 
maintain at a time when local 

Qicket decline 

From the Headmaster of H esr- 
minster City School and others 
Sir. Mr Matthews (July 4) is 
correct in saying that there is a 
general decline in the number of 
schools willing to play matches 
out of school time {even taking 
.into account ieachers' industrial 
action): and that the standard of 
ILEA wickets generally, although 
there are notable exceptions, is so 
Mow that pupils have difficult)- in 
‘learning the fundamentals of the 
game. Batting and fielding are 
often a lottery and bowlers take 
wickets they don't deserve. 

A further observation we would 
make is that little time is given to 
cricket at primary schools: this 


If that be so. many young fives 
which otherwise might be ruined 
by these cruelly lethal drags may 
well be saved by the Malaysians 
carrying through these executions, 
in the teeth of outraged liberal 
opinion. 

The Times is therefore right to 
advise those Western govern- 
ments who seek to stamp out the 
menace of drags to be chary about 
condemning the legal processes of 
a respected Commonwealth part- 
ner whose people are severely 
afflicted by hard drag addiction.

Doubts on basis 
of UGC ratings 

From Professor Michael Zander 
Sir. Our law department was one 
of those favoured by a star as 
“outstanding" in the recently pub- 
lished UGC ratings for research. It 
may seem surprising -as well as 
churlish, therefore, that I am 
writing to suggest that the exercise 
must be deemed to be wholly 
lacking in intellectual credibiliv. 

The UGCs research into fee 
relative merits of research in law 
departments seems to have been 
based largely on fee reading of fee 
very brief (two-to-tbree page) re- 
ports which we were asked to 
submit Inevitably such self-serv- 
ing statements emphasise 
strengths and minimise short- 
comings. 

At fee end of our report we were 
requested to specify five titles of 
books or articles published since 
1980 which were Typical of fee 
best of the research in fee 
department" 

Considering that during the 
period members of an ordinary 
sized department would have 
published dozens of books and 
hundreds of articles.' a sample of 
five seems so small as to be 
completely arbitrary and unrepre- 
sentative. But fee weakness of this 
method of proceeding is consid- 
erably compounded since it has 
been learnt that those responsible 
for making the assessments for the 
UGC did not haw fee time to read 
the works listed. 

If they were not to be read, why 
were we asked to list only five 
titles? For that matter, if they were 
not to be read, why were we asked 
for any titles at all? 

Accountability of university 
departments and scrutiny of what 
they* do in the research field seems 
both legitimate and potentially 
valuable. But if it is to be done, let 
it be done property and after 
consultations wife fee academic 
community. That fee reputation 
of institutions should be made or. 
even more, marred by the results 
of such spurious “peer review" is a 
public scandaL

US aid to Contras 

From Mrs Faith Tolkien 
Sir. The ruling of the International 
Court of Justice in The Hague that 
US aid to fee anu-Sandinista 
Contras in Nicaragua is in viola- 
tion of international law and that 
fee US is liable to pay reparation 
to Nicaragua for damage already 
done must noi go unremarked. 

The US rejection of fee court's 
authority in 1984 when the case 
was brought is now reaffirmed by 
the sending of S 100 million in aid 
to the Contras. 

The consequences of this are 
obviously appalling for Nicaragua: 
fee war will escalate and the 
people's deprivation and 
sufferings will multiply. But fee 
implications are far wider and 
even those who are quite un- 
interested Hi the fate of Nicaragua 
should pay attention. Freedom 
and liberty, as extolled in the 
celebrations around fee lady's

broken and “might is right".

for this fragile value: each time it

ON THIS DAY 


-JULY 11 1834 

This leading article epitomizes the 
■ rigour — often brutal — of The 
Times under die editorship (181 7- 
41 j of Thomas Barnes: it map in 
fact have been written by him. 
Melbourne succeeded Grey, but 
resigned in Socemberand the 
opposition / Tory) party formed a 
government: Peel becameprime 
minister, but not before Barnes 
had hid down the conditions 
under which he would support the 
new ministry, prompting Lord 
Chancellor Lynakurst to exclaim, 
"B7j\ Barnes is the most powerful 

man in the country". 


BARNES DEMANDS Af 
L NEW CABINET J 

In our article yesterday upon the 
embarrassing condition of the 
Government, we took the opportu- 
nity of referring to a statement 
of the LORD CHANCELLOR, 
which we find that his Lordship 
has since repealed, to the effect 
that the only resignations of office 
which had yet taken place were 
those of Lord GREY and Lord 
ALTHORP: the obvious conclu- 
sion from which, as indeed it was 
put forth distinctly by Lord 
BROUGHAM, must be. that mi- 
nus only the late Premier and the 
late CHANCELLOR of the EX- 
CHEQUER. the Government was 
still perfect in all its parts, while 
the tacit conclusion rather left to 
be drawn by others than directly 
annunciated by the noble and 
learned Lord himsetf. was. that 
with the simple substitution of 
another chief, and another leader 
of the House of Commons, the 
same Cabinet might do very well as 
it stood (or stands), and all this 
disturbance be settled without 
further difficulty and without any 
evil consequences . . . 

Such being the fact, our com- 
ment is. that we are moat deeply 
mortified, grieved, and alarmed, to 
hear it- Considering the circum- 
stances under which the Cabinet 
which reckoned Lords GREY and 
ALTHORP among its members, 
has for some time past attempted 
to struggle, and in the midst of 
which these noble lords resigned, 
nothing is more obvious than that 
a clean sweep of the whole Admin- 
istration has become absolutely 
indispensable. The rubbish must 
be wheeled away to the last 
barrwfuU before any sure founda- 
tion can be laid for a new building. 
Good God! are we to have another 
downright fraud passed upon the 
rightful expectations of the coun- 
try? Are we to have putty and 
whitewash laid over “lath and 
plaster", and then told that such an 
edifice will stand the hurricane of 
rhw»B like these? . . . 

Why. iL after the retreat of Mr. 
STANLEY and the rest, the last 
attempt at reconstruction out of 
the old unsound materials was 
condemned and scorned as a piece 
of miserable drivelling, how much 
worse would the case be now. when 
Lords GREY and ALTHORP are 
to be added to the losses of the 
same Administration? . . . We 
have said that any new Cabinet, 
framed for public esteem and 
confidence, must be at least as 
liberal as Lord GREY"s. We recall 
the expression — it must be more 
liberal: it must rid itself effectually 
of that more than half-Tory sec- 
tion which has for these two 
sessions of Parliament paralyzed 
and disabled the best efforts of its 
more patriotic and enlightened 
colleagues. Lord LANSDOWNE. 
bolstered up as he was in youth by a 
system of sedulous preceptorship — 
by the antic i pat i ons of those herds 
of flatterers who besieged the 
noble Lord’s father — die politi- 
cal MAECENAS of some certain 
coteries — and by the favour and 
countenance of Mr. Fox: — Lord 
LANSDOWNE. we say - and we 
do so in the discharge of a stem 
duty to our countrymen — Lord 
LANSDOWNE is a total failure. 
He is not a bold, determined, or 
strenuous statesman. He has no 
sympathies with the spirit of 
manly and resolute reform. He has 
headed the Conservatives through- 
out. and through his influence in a 
quarter which shall be nameless, he 
it was who saddled upon the 
country a personage of whose 
merits the noble Marquis has 
formed a judgement which is the 
admiration of all lookers-on — to 
wit. the wise Lord AUCKLAND! 
Yet there are dolts who would 
actually obtrude Lord 
LANSDOWNE (of all men living!) 
for Prime Minister after Lord 
GREY, whose very weaknesses are 
more estimable than the other's 
strength, exhibiting, as they do. a 
high mind and a generous spirit. 
Lord LANSDOWNE*S own pro- 
motion to the rank of Premier 
might be of a piece with the scheme 
of a “ Coalition Cabinet, “which we 
have for many months know to be a 
favourite chimera of the Court. 

. . . Two of our c o n tempora ries 
— one a morning, the other an 
evening, journal — are pushing 
claims of as many individuals to 
high consideration as candidates 
for prominent office. The Morning 
Chronicle takes Lord DURHAM, 
for whom we have often declared 
our own goodwill, as a liberal 
statesman. The Courier will have it 
that Lord ALTHORP ought to be 
Prime Minister . . . 

Filtering through 

From Mr A. R. F. Carter 
Sir. It was not til] just lately that it 
finally hit me that we are indeed 
part of a Common Market Last 
week I purchased a new air filter 
for my French— made "British" 
car: the filter was marketed under 
a German brand name, and 
manufactured in Spain. 

A less humorous postscript is 
feat for some 12 weeks the same 
filter type had been on order from 
a British company. Finally in 
desperation ihe dealer ordered the 
identical part from a German 
company, who delivered it in two 
days. 

Yours failhfaUv.

OBITUARY 

LE DUAN 

Pragmatic leadership of North Vietnam 


Le Doan, secretary general 
of the Vietnamese Commu- 
nist Party who succeeded Ho 
Chi Minh in 1969 and led 
North Vietnam to victory- in. 
the Vietnam War, died yester- 
day. He was 78. 

Like most of the elderly 
Hanoi leadership, Duan’s 
hardline attitudes were bred in . 
long years of fighting: first die 
French and then : the 
Americans.. ' 

He was born on April ?,. 
1 907. the son of a carpenter in 
Quang Tri province (now 
absorbed in Binh Tri Thien 
province). After formal 
schooling, his first job was as a 
clerk with the French Rail- 
ways in Hanoi in the 1920s. 

Le Duan lived in South 
Vietnam until' 1957 before 
moving to the North. He 
joined the Indochinese. Com- 
munist Party, the forerunner 
of the Vietnamese Commu- 
nist Party, at its inception in 
1930. A year later, he was 
already in sharp conflict with - 
the authorities and spent a 
number of years in prison for 
political activities. - 
On his release, he returned 
to his work as a member of the 
Party. Four years 'later, when 
the French took official action 
against the. Patty, he was 
arrested and again incarcerat- 
ed. - 

Once free, Le Duan rose 
through the Party ranks. He 
was a firm supporter of deci- 
sive action, and in the 1950$ 
persuaded Hanoi to apply 
military pressure on Sooth 
Vietnam, laying the seeds of 
terrorism from which grewthe 



United States military in- 
volvement in the region. ' 

Oh; the death of Ho Chi 
Minh in 1969, he emerged as 
the effective Party leader and 
assumed, without dissent, the 
reins of power, although he 
never assumed . his 
predecessor's title of 
“chairman". With ruthless 
and single-minded intent, he 
then led his country to victory 
against, the American-backed. 
South. 

It was a Conflict that left a 
ravaged country m ils wake; 
and.; when north and south 
were reunified at the end of 
tire war m 1975. he advocated 
piecework and product-based 
wages in an attempt to revive 
the economy and feed the 
starving masses. 

' It was a policy which he 
described as "a progressive 


mode of remuneration which ' 
conforms to the socialist prin- 
ciple of distribution according 
to the work; done”, and h was • 
in large measure responsible 
for Vietnam achieving food > 
self-sufficiency for the first \ 
time in the 1982/83 crop year. 1 
. Despite his revolutionary ‘ 
background., when faced with. ' 
social and economic difficult / 
ties Le Duan wsa pragmatist.- f 
He was alsoa nnn advocate o£ > 
coHectrve leadership, insofar \ 

as - he appointed' his own" f 
' protegfc to .important post- \ 
.tions. It was consensus leader-" 1 
ship of sorts which had titer 
practical , effect of not giving, 

Le Duan an entirely freehand.^ 

He came under increasing 
criticism for his- handling of' 
the economy, particularly the 
disastrous currency reforms 
introduced last September^, 
but despite creeping ill health 
in recent years, he main ta in ed: 
hjs firm hold on the. Party. ~ 

Le Duan was a tough leaded 
and a vocal critic of Western 
imperialism. His pro-Soviet 
leanings took him to Moscow 
in 1971 a visit which resulted ' 
in the signing of the Friend- 
ship Treaty. . . ,'i 

Eschewing any “personality . 
cult” he remained a shadowy.’ , 
figure, deliberately shunning 1 
publicity and with a discon-, 
certing . ■ habit of 
"disappearing" for weeks on 
end.. He did continue to 
deliver, major, if rare, policy, 
speeches,. and his Politburos 
confidence in him was denn 
onstrated with his re-election; 
as secretary general at the' 
Party’s Fifth Congress 
March, 1982.

Air Commodore D. D’Arcy 
Greig, DFC, AFC. , who cap- 
tains! Britain's winning team 
in the 1929 Schneider Trophy 
Race, died in Bexhill-on-Sea 
on July 7. He was 86. 

In the previous year he had 
established a fastest flight time 
in a Supermarine S5 Napier 
seaplane; but this was disal- 
lowed as a world record 
because it did not exceed the 
previous record by the mini- 
mum permitted margin 
David D'Arcy Alexander 
Greig was a Scot who joined 
the newly-formed Royal Air 
Force to see service with No 
83 Squadron -in France m the 
last year of the First World 
War. 

On September 13, theFE2b 
aircraft be was flying, was hit 
by anti-aircraft fire and he was 
forced to crash-land well be- 
hind enemy lines. Declining to 
consider- his war over, howev- 
er. he set out in the direction 
of the front on foot, and after a 
trudge of 13 miles succeeded 
in threading his way bade 
through the German lines to. 
regain the Allied positions, 
and. eventually, his squadron. 

This was donewritka non- 
chalance* characteristic of a 
man who already embodied 
the daredevil, debonair quali- 
ties^ apparent in the officers of 

that nascent service. 

At the end of the war he 
served with distinction with 
No 6 Squadron in .the opera- 
tions in Iraq, and was awarded 
the DFC in 1921. 

Later, be took the flying 
instructor's course and subse- 


quently bad a narrow escape 
from death when an aircraft he 
was testing for its manoeu- 
vring capabilities, got into an 
uncontrollable spin from 
which he was only able to 


Italian afiair, with Greig lead- 
ing the British effort. 

In the event it was for Mar 
No2, Flying Officer H. R. D* 
Wagbora, to turn in the 
performance - 328.63mph - 


extricate himself by baling out which won the Trophy for the; j. 
after a terrifying 10,000 ft second time, with iiis captain/*!' 


plunge from* over 20,000ft 
Time to “get out and walk” as 
he later described iL 

With his experience he was 
a natural choice to command 
the RAFs High Speed Flight 
in 1928 and immediately em- 
barked on training for an 
assault on the world Air Speed 
Record, held at that point by 
Major .Bemaidi of the Italian -' 
Air Force, with a speed of 
318.62 mph. ... 

in his attempt, made on 
November 4, 1928, the best of 
Greig’s runs, over the stan- 
dard three kilometre course 
above the Solent, was timednt 
322.66 mph. But neither that, 
nor the; average of the four 
runs - though faster than the 
Italian at 3l9.57mph - could 
be considered -as s world 
record as they did not exceed 
BernardTs speed by die 5mph 
required, in those days, by the 
rules. •- 

- Greig, had to be .satisfied, 
therefore, witlr a- British 
record, and the award of the 
AFC 

For the 1929 Schneider 
competition, Supermarine 
produced a successor w theS5 
which had beaten the Italians 
for the Trophy in 1927, with a 
speed of 28Imph. Once again 
the contest was an Anglo- . 


Greig in third place behind 
Warrant Officer T. Dal Molin' 
of the Italian Air Force. ' ' 

The 1931 Schneider race 
saw Britain retain die trophy 
permanently, with an uprated 
version of the Mitchell-de^ 
signed Supermarine mono- 
plane,- research for' which 
contributed so much to the 
development of the Spitfire 
fighter. Among other interest- 
ing research items to emerac 
from the competition was the 
observation for the first time 
of the . phenomenon of black- 
ing out, while pulling G-tums.’ 

Greig himself was to serve . 
again in Iraq, as well as iri)£ 
qgypt and Palestine, and fit 
the early stages of the Second. 
World War commanded No 
75 (Bomber) squadron, based 
atHomngton in Suffolk. . ;; 

He later served in Canada, 
retiring from the RAFin l 946, 
at the end of a careerin which; 
he had flown 144 aircraft 
types, ranging from the bi^ 
planes of World War l, to 
Spitfires, Mosquitoes and Fly- 
ing Fortresses. 

In his retirement at BeritiQ^ 
he lived quietly, devoting 
himself with skill and knowl- 
edge to the garden which- 
pleasurably occupied so many 
of his leisure hours.

Professor John Ashton. 
CBE, Professor of Agricultural 
Economics at Newcastle Uni- 
versity, . whose inspiration 
moulded a generation of agri- 
cultural economists, died on 
July 2. He was 63. 

He was born in Liverpool 
on August 25, 1922, the son of 
a gardener, and educated at 
Quarry Bank School; 
Brasenose College. Oxford; 
and Cornell University. . 

He served as a navigator in 
the Fleet Air Arm from 1941 
to 1946, in 819Squadron until

economic branches, he played 
a leading role in the annual 
price review and latterly in 
preliminary uegotations . on

But his greatest contribu- 
tions.. followed his appoint- 


ment in 1964 as the first 
Professor of Agricultural Eco- 
nomics at Newcastle 
University. 

Under Ashton's strong but 
sympathetic leadership, the 
department rapidly a chi eved 
international influence and 
prestige, particularly in policy 
analysis. He brought together 
a series of varied and nighty 
motivated teams of col- 
leagues, many of whom them- 
selves subsequently became 
prominent. 

He negotiated generous sup- 
port from the W. K. Kellogg 
Foundation of the United 
States to establish the agricul- 
tural-adjustment unit which, 
for 1 V years, provided pio- 
neering integrated studies of 
technical^ , economic and social

Mr Geoffrey Rowett, FCA, 
director and general manager 
ofTimes Newspapers Limited 
from 1967 to 1972, died bn 
June 19. He was 60. _ . . 

Geoffrey Charles Rowett 
was bom in Plymouth and 
educated at Roundhay School, 
Leeds. He was articled to 
Blackburns.- Robson- Coates 
and Company of Leeds. before 
joining the Midland Bank in 
1941. 

During the war he served in 
the Royal Navy, reluming to 
Blackburns- in 1947. From 
1954 to 1964, he worked with 
a South African engineering 
.company before joining 
Thomson . Newspapers Limit- 
ed in 1965 as managing direc- 
tor of The. Sunday Times, .a 
post he held until 1972. 

When Lord Thomson ac- 
quired The Times in 1967, 
Rowett became the executive 
responsible for bringing to- 
gether the two newspapers 
into one cohesive company. ' . 


agement consultancy, he 
found the economics, of Fleet 
Street and the practices con- 
doned by both, management 
and unions - ; bizarre, and 
perplexing. 

. Always fertile in ideas, he 
was constantly seeking new 
and more effective solutions 
to the familiar problems. That 
the merger of these two papers 
-has lasted and. proved success- 
ful owes much to Rowetr. . 

He departed from TNL in 
1973 to - become managing 
director of corporate finance 
at the Britfsfa Steel 
Copo ration. The following 
year, he . joined . The 
Charterhouse Group as a 
managing director, serving as 
deputy 'chairman from . 1981- 
83. 

To his colleagues, Rowett 
was firm but always humane 
and considerate in his deal- 
ings, and he earned the respect 
and affection.of all thosewith 
whom he came in touch. 


council of the Trade Policy; 
Research Centre, served on 
the agricultural sub-commit- 
tee of the University Grants 
Committee and as an advisor, 
to the House of Commons 
Select Committee on 
Agriculture. . 

He had been president of 
the Agricultural ' Economics 
Society, the European Associ- 
ation of Agricultural Econo-' - 
mists, and the University- 
Agricultural Society. 

John Ashton was a man of 
colossal and generous spirit: 

His energy derived from air 
unceasing interest in people/, 
seasoned by relish for con- 
fronting the pompous and 
selfservtng. 

He will be re m embered for 
his imagination and fearless 
integrity^ his unerring judg* 
mem: his jovial- companions y 
ship; his wit; and his love of 1 
discussion and of life. " 

He is survived by his wife.

The Color Purple arrives in Britain 
after mountainous publicity. Nomi- 
nated for 1 1 Oscars, Steven 
Spielberg's film won none: testimony, 
rumour goes, to Establishment disap- 
proval of the director's youth, power 
and success (or, possibly' the superior 
qualities of the rival entries). The film 
has also been tub-thumped for its 
style and subject-matter. Out go 
planetary visitors and comic-strip 
rigmarole; in come the earthly pains 
and joys of black people in the Deep 
South, as described in Alice Walker's 
novel about a woman's struggle 
towards self-respect and sisterhood 
during the century’s early decades. 
Technical wizardry was now not 
enough: there had to be, in Spielberg’s 
words, “spontaneous combustion in 
the idea department" and “tremen- 
dous emotional growth" among the 
characters. 

This is. to be sure, a break in 
Spielberg's recent pattern. Whereas 
Indiana Jones's emotional growth 
could be contained on a pin-head, 
Alice Walker’s heroine Celie ad- 
vances from the conson-cum-drudge 
of a harsh black farmer she calls “Mr" 
to an independent woman fulfilling 
her gifts. Yet the pattern has only 
been cracked, not rent asunder. 
Walker's novel offered a tight thicket 
of letters from Celie and her sister to 
each other and God; Spielberg leaves 
us clutching the 154-minute chain of 
slick, mostly shallow set-pieces, 
staged with an eye to preitification. 

Characters pose silhouetted in the 
orange sun: a cheek's tear is caught in 
a shaft of light. Angled shots isolate 
symbolic objects: the letter-box from 
which “Mr’ filches the letters of . 
Celte’s sister, who becomes a mis- 
sionary in Africa; the rockmg'Chair 
where Celie wields a tempting razor 
on her master’s neck and reads the 
letter eventually discovered with the 
help ofShug, the blues singer and free 
spirit who flits through the narrative. 
This artful visual style has distin- , 
guished Hollywood precedents; Dis- 
ney cartoons and William Cameron 
Menzies's production designs imme- 
diately come to mind. Bui the 
symbols and embellishments do little 
to foster a sense of reality, nor do they 
smooth the plot’s bumps and craters 
during its 40-year journey. Audiences 
unfamiliar with the novel may well be 




Not for the first lime, a new 
piece by Robert Saxton leaves 
one in the whirling irresolu-

his imagination seems to have it really had no choice. 


It also showed itself well

and. while on the subject of 
Scottish orchestras. I must pul

Avery as Shug, prodding her to blossom and smile and shimmer with tender simplicity 


confused by the flurry of exposition, 
the final rush of reunions, and much 
else in between. 

Luckily the film contains one great 
strength in the debut peformance of 
Whoopi Goldberg who shot to fame 
in J 984 with her one-woman, multi- 
character Broadway show. Her 
present pan equally needs a 
chameleon's skills; as Celie. she must 
variously look quashed, obedient, 
shy, sly, indignant, proud and victori- 
ous. Her dignity, however, remains 
constant, and the scenes where Shug 
prods her to blossom and smile 
shimmer with tender simplicity. 
Without Whoopi Goldberg Spiel- 
berg's Deep South would seem like 
the Land of Oz. 

Using newsreels, declassified docu- 
ments and interviews with witnesses 
and survivors. Half Life tells the ugly 
story of the huge hydrogen bomb 
dropped by America in 1954 on its 
remote Pacific protectorate, the Mar- 
shall Islands. Supposedly unforeseen 
winds carried the fall-out to inhabited 
atolls, damning generations to thy- 
roid tumours. cancers and other ills— 
and giving the Atomic Energy Com- 
mission perfect conditions for a field- 
study. Another director might have 
whipped up the material into an agit- 
prop scream; Dennis O'Rourke, an 
Australian film-maker especially con- 
cerned with the erosion of non- 
.western cultures, chooses to make his 
points quietly, slowly unfurling evi- 
dence of American cyhicism and the • 
uncontrollable effects of its man- 
made atomic monster. 

As in The Atomic Cafe, archive 
footage chillingly encapsulates period 
attitudes: one Fifties commentator 
blithely calls the islanders “savages”. 
But O'Rourke's camera finds much 


food for thought itself, among today's 
islanders: catching the thrashings of a 
deformed child hidden in shadows, or 
the simple words of a mother who 
once thought the Americans friendly 
visitors^ “Do they think one person’s 
life is unimportant?” she asks; “What 
goes on in the minds of these ' 
people?" Half Life presents a bleak, 
eloquent, unforgettable study in hu- 
man frailty and the monstrosity of life 
under the mushroom cloud. 

"Haven’t been to a movie since the 
Duke died”, says James Gamer’s 
pharmacist in Murphy's Romance 
during a hesitant courtship of Salty 
Field, the town's new widow. Alas, 
the Bijou is showing some bloodbath, 
and the couple quickly exit for the 
gentler pleasures of bingo at the Elks 
Club. The director Martin Ritt, 
maker of well-intentioned films since 
1956, is clearly standing up for old- 
fashioned entertainment, and it needs 
a rather old-fashioned audience to get 
the best from this slow-moving story 
of a May to December love affair. 
Ritt's regular collaborators Harriet 
Frank Jr aiid Irving. Ra vetch lace, 
their, craftsmanlike script with . a 
generous allowance of Midwestern 
atmosphere, and the stars supply the 
expected commodites: grit and puck- 
ered looks from Sally Field, lackadai- 
sical charm from James Garner. This 
is not the film for those who, like ■ 
surprises. . 

Predictability cannot be levelled at 
Wolfgang Petersen's grotesque Ene- 
my Mine. An intergalactic dogfight 
temporarily reduces the characters to 
Davidge.a xenophobic earthling, and 
Jeriba Shigan. a reptilian hermaphro- 
dite — both marooned on a hostile 
planet. At first Davidgedubs the alien 
“toad face”; when relationships im- 


prove he calls it Jeny After display- 
ing a stomach glowing like a brazier, 
Jerry gives birth and dies. The 
offspring is captured by marauders - 
and so it goes on, for 93 lunatic 
minutes (IS minutes less than the 
American version, which sank like a 
stone). 

Like his UFA compatriots 60 years 
ago. Peicrsen glories in studio-bound 
extravaganzas, and the few obvious 
location shots seem real intrusions 
among the carnivorous tentacles, 
ferocious crags and meteor-storms 
conjured up at the Bavaria Studios. 


been diverted into accom- 
plishing a formal respectabil- 
ity. Not only does the work 
have the regular four sym- 
phonic movements — an 
opener that has . the dual 
subject-matter and the balanc- 
ing reprise of a sonata allegro, 
a scherzo with wild piccolo 
trio, a slow movement and a 
finale of suspiciously rondo- 
like shape — it also relives the 
mosi obvious and long-estab- 
lished concerto metaphor, 
that of the soloist as individ- 
ual in conflict with the orches- 
tra as crowd. 

Beyond that, there is a 
connection with the Hebrew 
meditations of Ernest Bloch, 
for the main features of the 
soloist’s slower melodies are 
those of Jewish cantillalion: 
accented appoggialuras. re- 
peated notes, prominent 
downward scale shapes and 
arpeggios. Then again, the 


Obviously in such magnifi- 
cently spacious surroundings 
one would not have expected 
the finest of fine detail in the 
chamber-orchestra sections to 
come through. The trouble 
was that virtually everything 
disappeared; bass lines some- 
times managed to sound sur- 
prisingly clear, but nothing' 
above middle register had a 
chance except when the har- 
mony flowed in its broadest 
periods. 

Bui some moments did 
work - the chorus's final huge 
shout of “Sanctus". for in- 
stance. winging away into the 
vast distances of St Paul's to 
reveal the hushed opening 
notes of the Wilfred Owen 
setting “After the blast of 
lightning" uneasily sustained 
beneath it, or the relentlessly 
gradual build-up of the “Libe- 
ra me" towards its release in 
one of the most awesome 


work is almost a revisiting of climaxes in all music.

sies with would-be serious thoughts; though reducal. gestures of 
Enemy Mine duly preaches a simple luminosity, and reaching half-

the sermon to heart, yoked to such

Youngblood, from Canada, is 
bluntly aimed at the teenage market. 

Young lads are offered all the 
violence and dirty tricks traditionally 


luminosity, and reaching half- 
way through to an analogous 
point of deep bass blackness. 

One's two minds might join 
in pleasure if the work some- 
how took account of its stiff- 
ening background, but it 
seems on the contrary blithely 
naive about itself. That, of

the 18th-century manner with 
characters who talk in the 
classless cockney of today. 

You get the style from the 
opening AGM of the Beef- 
steak Club, with the chairman 
casting his vote for laying on 
some whores under Any Other 
Business, and Hogarth con- 
fronting an art-collecting mi- 
lord like an 18th-century Don 
McCuIlin feeing the director 
of the National Portrait Gal- 
lerv. The play latches on to the 
feet that Hogarth was working 
in an area despised by gradu- 
ates of the Grand Tour, and 
that, for all his realism, he did 
not satirize recognizable per- 
sonalities. Why not a States-

asks: and is brushed off by the 
proudly independent painter.

wants to niggle at public 
hypocrisy while also receiving 
a 'fat fee. He would be entirely 
at home in television or 
advertising: and, indeed, one 
of his nightmares includes the 
gift of a Polaroid camera. 

Bounding between club- 
land. prison and the brothel, 
the play acoeleraies into de^ 
mented frenzy in which farce 
overlaps with the horrors. The 
basic structure is that of the 
old comedy, with Hogarth 
desperately making his way 
home in skins like the hero of 
The Provok'd Wife. Mr Dear 
also pushes over the bound- 
aries between comic action 
and fantasy, so that the mur- 
deress escapes from jail and 
makes for the wife's bedroom, 
where Walpole himself also 
puts in an appearance, assum- 
ing he has interrupted a 
lesbian assignation. When 
things grow as improbable as 
that, the play regains control 
by a return to elegant diction. 
"You have a sharp mind for a. 
woman in a nightie". Walpole 
remarks, and observes, some 
speeches later. “1 got a Titian 
last year for £2.10 — it’s 
already worth double thal”. 

The play is essentially about 
learning ’to close the gap 
between waking life and 
dreams: and there are times, 
particularly when Fielding 
and Hogarth's wife take over 
his education, when it grows 
uncomfortably sententious. 
Otherwise, its progress is spec- 
tacular and unfaltering. 

Adrian Noble has directed it 
on and around a raised plat- 
form (by Ultt) first seen as a 
gigantic table for the slumber- 
ing drunks of the Beefsteak 
Club. That sets upexprcssion- 
isitc expectations that are 
honoured throughout the eve- 
ning with transformations to a 
fetid Newgate, a whore's pitch 
in Yauxhall. Gardens and the 
Queen’s bedroom. 

Altogether it suggests a piti- 
less world where disaster al- 
ways looms. and nobody takes 
any precautions against it. 
Michael Kitchen's Hogarth, 
raked equally with guilt, and 
creative energy, comes over as 
one of the lads who also 
conceivably could be a genius.

The Cure for Love 
Theatre Royal, York 

Wafier Greenwood is better 
known for his dire social- 
realist, novel Low on the Dole 
than for this “breezy nonhem 
comedy" which — under the 
title Rod of Iron, and starring 
Robert Donat (a role he later 
re-created in his film version) 
— was a hit of I94S. 

Set in Salford in the fifth 
year of the war. the piece 
presents a portrait of working- 
class life among the. grimy 
back-to-backs. It is a micro- 
cosm of poverty, back-parfour 
sermonizing and intransigeni- 
ly held opinions, a Zolaesque 
world where mortal insults 
lake ihe form of criticizing the 
cleanliness of one's neigh- 
bour's house, and where the 
divorce-rate can in- all solem- : 
nity be blamed on not wearing 
wool next to the skin. 

The high priestess of all this I 
is a tough, grim widow | 
(Vanessa Rosenthal) whose , 
ritualized parsimony extends ! 
to hiding the poker when she 1 
leaves her well-scrubbed teeto- 
tal home to work at a British 
Restaurant 

When her soldier son (Con 
O'Neill) returns on leave from 
three years spent biffing Jerry, i 
her first concern is that he has 
failed to gain a pension for his 
minor wounds.. Her second ! 
concern is thal in his absence 
bis room has been taken over , 
by a vivacious cockney girl 
(Linsey Beauchamp) billeted 
oir her for the duration, while I 
his .major headache is that he 
is engaged to a young neigh- ; 
hour (Gwynneth Hammond) | 
whom he has never loved. 

The resulting confusions de- 
volve at a slow trot punctured 
by. fits of explosive altercation, 
with pithy opprobrium and 
lashings of colourful dialect 

The company's stabs at the 
notoriously ill-sounding local 
accent are variable, to say the 


Mayes turns in a performance 
of stolid authority as the well- 
heeled publican who spends a 
large pan of the action at- 
tempting to ban various 
intemperate? from his private 
bar. 

But the script itself is ham- 
strung both by its reliance on 
wartime jokes (which simply 1 
do not work any longer) and I 
by its pedestrian verbosity, 
which, at around three hours' | 
running time, brings to mind 
the ordeal of watching six 
episodes of Coronation 51 eel 
back-to-back. 

Soft-centred and "diffuse in 
construction, the piece re- 
mains an historical curiosity.

New budget for 
EEC clinched 
on £93m deal 

From Jonathan Braude, Strasbourg 


The European Economic 
Community has agreed on a 
new 1986 budget of £21.9 
billion, using up all the avail- 
able funds and increasing this 
year's spending by more than 
£1 billion. 

Parliament voted in favour 
of the budget by 355 to 27, 
with 21 abstentions, only a 
week after the European Court 
of Justice ruled that the origi- 
nal budget, pushed through at 
the end of last year, was illegaL 

After four days of intensive 
negotiation, the governments 
of the twelve member states 
and the European Parliament 
agreed to set agricultural 
spending at £1 3.9 billion — an 
increase of £682 million on 
the budget thrown out by the 
courL 

The extra money will be 
needed to cover the extra cost 
of subsidizing agricultural ex- 
ports. due to the fall in value 
against the dollar. Hie British 
Socialists voted against it. 

Regional and social spend-

radio broadcasts 


A BBC investigation has 
revealed that Radio Moscow 
broadcasts to Britain are being 
disrupted - by the Soviet 
Union's jamming devices 
(Garin Bell writes). 

The inquiiy was ordered 
after Mr Leonid Zamyatin, the 
Soviet Union's ambassador in 
Britain, complained to the 
Commons last week that he 
could not listen to pro- 
grammes because they were 
being jammed, particularly in 
northern England. 

BBC engineers, including 
some at the Skelton transmit- 
ter site in Cumbria, promptly 
checked reception of the six 
frequencies used by Moscow

THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 11 1986 


Community’s revenues within i 
the ceiling of 1.4 per cent of 
VAT and income from cus- '■ 
toms duties and agricultural 
levies. 

Fears of bankruptcy con- 
centrated the minds of the 
negotiators during the course 
of Wednesday night, as all 
sides realized that failure to 
reach an agreement would 
leave the Community at least 
£3 billion short in 1986. 

The crucial breakthrough 
came as Parliament accepted a 
£93 million deal to fond all the 
projects threatened by the 
court's derision. The money 
was put into a “negative 
reserve”, which must be paid 
back at the end of the year 
from unspent funds in other 
areas of the budget. 

Mr Peter Brooke, the British 
president of the Council of 
Budget Ministers, declared 
that the agreement was a 
success for Europe and could 
put an end to the annual 
squabbles over the division of 
funds. 

Displaying his European 
credentials in heavily accent- 
ed but accurate French, he 
expressed his pleasure that 
Parliament and governments 
could work together to resolve 
the problems of the EEC

Nigel Mansell and mar-hmp at Brands Rak* yesterday . . . hoping to overtake reigning wold champion Alain Prost (Photograph: Peter Trievnor). 

Perfectionist looks to reality in title race 


to broadcast in English to 
Britain. They discovered: 

• Three were operating with- 
out interference: 

• One was interfering with a 
neighbouring BBC World Ser - 1 
vice channel, despite repeated 
BBC complaints; 

• Two were being disrupted 
by distinctive Soviet “road- 
drill" type jamming on two 
adjacent western channels. 

The BBC, which believes it 
has 14 million regular listeners 
to its Russian service in the 
Soviet Union, estimates that 
Moscow spends £680 million 
a year jamming foreign 
broadcasts. 


By Tim Jones 

The man who would be king 
does not dream of wearing the 
crown. For Nigel Mansell 
knows that before he achieves 
that accolade he must survive . 
another 1,300 miles of punish- 
ing driving at speeds averaging 
more than 115 mph. 

Those hard miles represent 
the eight remaining races in 
the Formula One world cham- 
pionship season and Mansell 
knows that be mast drive his 
1,000 horsepower machine to 
perfection if he is to become 
die first Briton to win the 
drivers championship since 
James Hunt 10 years ago. 

By all the rules of this rich 
man’s game, Mansell should 
not be on dm starting grid at 
Brands Hatch on Sunday 
where the British Grand Prix 
is bring fought out. 


Unlike many of his glamor- 
ous rivals, Mansell las no 
wealthy parents to help him 
sustain the dream which he 
has nurtured since he was aged 
seven. 

He worked, alongside his 
father, at Lucas Aerospace in 
Birmingham, but the ambition 
to drive faster than any man 
alive would not leave him. At 
first, be satisfied his Inst for 
speed by go-kart racing, but 
that was not enough. 

So, not long married, he sold 
his house to raise the money to 
enable him to take op Formula 
Ford racing. There was no 
champagne then. At night he 
framed pictures and by day 
went window cleaning in order 
to raise funds. 

While his Formula Ford 
reputation was growing, he 
was running 15 miles a day to 


keep fit and writing 30 letters 
a day to plead for sponsorship. 

His grit paid off. Chi Sun- 
day, when he sits in his Canon- 
Honda-Wniiams car, he will 
, know better than anyone that, 
with 38 points a) far this 
season, he is only one behind 
the mercurial Alain Prost, the 
present world champion. 

Speaking yesterday in his 
calm, nn emotional Mi dlands 
accent, Mansell said that be 
did not dream of the world 
crown. “I would rather nse the 
energy to make the dream 
come true rather than waste it 
dreaming.” 

Could he have achieved the 
dream if he had been wealthy? 
“Maybe yes, maybe no. If you 
have the wealth I don't know 
whether die hunger is there. 
But though I have the wealth 
the hunger is still with me. 


“What I have achieved has 
been through determination, 
single mindedness and dog- 
gedness. I am never arrogant 
because f believe you can 
always learn something.'” . 

He does not think of danger 
or death. “I take each race as 
it comes, although some pretty 
terrifying things can happen 
like being trapped in a banting 
car and unable to get out" 

For a man whose profession 
has already cost him a broken 
back and neck it was a modest 
understatement 
Away from the wkbick 
smell of the raring pits, 
Mansell likes to return to his 
Isle of Man home with his wife 
Roseanne, and his children, 
Chloe, aged fom, and Leo, 
aged 18 m o n th s. 

“I am not a tax exile 
because f pay 20 per cent I

Hopes of 
second 
summit 
increase 

Continued from page 1 

there must be thepossibHity of 
a substantive agreement at the 
second summit before the 
Soviet side will agree to a final 
date. Both predicted that re- 
cent Soviet proposals, to allow 
. some research into the Strate- 
gic Defence initiative (SDI) 
could provide a crucial basis 
for negotiation. V 

M Mitterrand described 
some of the recent arms 
proposals put forward by Mr 
Gorbachov as “fairly 
spectacular" arid, in answer to 
a broad question on the state 
of disarmament negotiations 
between East and West, con- 
cluded: “The path is. a little 
clearer, before us, and that is 

an improvement.'' 

| On the key summit ques- 
tion, Dr Owen said that Mr 
Dobrynin, now head of the 
international department of 
the Communist Party’s Cen- 
j tral Committee, had . made 
clear that before, agreeing a 
[ date the Soviet -side needed to 
know that at least one oudear 
issue would be discussed with 
the chance of a substantive 
agreement. •• “ " 

He added his talks had 
made it dear that ihe.Soviet 
Government understood that 
it could no longer hope to 
prevent research bn SD] 
proceeding. 

M Mitterrand, although em- 
phasizing his adherence to the 
Nato alliance, indicated 
French sympathy for the Sovi- 
et stand cm a. number of arms 
control issues- 

The only sour note con- 
cerned the vexed question of 
human rights, particularly toe 
unresolved case of Dr Andrei 
Sakharov, the exiled Soyiet 
physicist and bis wile, Mrs 
Yelena -Bbnner, who met M 
Mitterrand in Paris in May. 

• JERUSALEM: Mr Yitzhak 
Shamir, toe Israeli Foreign 
Minister, yesterday . rejected 
Mr Gorbachov’s call for. the 
five permanent members ‘ of 
the UN Security Council to 
hold a conference on the 
Middle East (Reuter reports). 

“We will not accept any 
imposed solutions of our 
problems," Mr Shamir said.

Tan Sri Khoo Teck Puat, who 
had also declared his support 
for Standard Chartered's con- 
tinued independence. 

With other holdings, it is 
thought that about 20 per cent 



of Standard Chartered shares 
are now committed to the 
board. 

Shares in Standard Char- 
tered plunged oh the news as 
market fears grew that the £13 
billion takeover bid by Lloyds 
Bank might fail. At one time 
Standard shares fell from 802p 
to 767p and dosed 2Sp down 
at 777p. 


Lloyds Merchant Bank also 
bought a further 3 million 
shares on behalf of Lloyds 
Bank after buying 4 million on 
Wednesday. 

With holdings in the Lloyds 
Bank pension fund, this brings 
the bidder's stake to the 
maximum 5 per cent allowed 
under United States banking 
laws. 

Once this buying stopped, 
the Standard Chartered share 
price fell quickly and that of 
Lloyds rose equally steeply, 
gaining 25p to 422p before 
slipping to 41 9p. Consequent- 
ly, Lloyds’ calculates the value 
of its alternative bid, which 
contains ordinary shares, at 
872p, nearly £1 per share 
above the Standard price. 

Lloyds puts its basic offer at 
842p. Standard Chartered 
puts a lower valuation on 
Lloyds’ unquoted convertible 
preference shares.

W First test 


British Electricity Interna- 
tional, the overseas consultan- 
cy run by the electricity supply 
industry, has completed, the 
intitial testing of a £400,000 
wind generator for the Barba- 
dos Government. 


Inmos. the semicondutor 
manufacturing company 
owned by Thom EM), is to 
cease production in the US. 
The work will be transferred 
from Colorado to its plant at 
Newport, Gwent, 

Thorn EMI, which yester- 
day announced its results for 
the year to March 31, said the 
rationalization programme, 
involving the loss of 450 jobs 
in Colorado Springs, started 
yesterday. 

Inmos made a loss of £25 
million before interest last 
year, against a profit of £4.2 
million in the previous period 
and a budgeted breakeven. 

Sir Graham WiJkins, 
Thorn’s chairman, said: 
“Inmos remains our major 
problem. There is no pick-up 
in the semiconductor or pe- 
ripheral .market.” He said tire 
transfer of production to New- 
port would reduce costs by S3 
million (£1.9 million) a 
month, but to reach breakeven 
Inmos would have to increase 
sales slightly.

of Inmos from the Govern- 
ment two years ago. Its current 
shareholding is 95 per cent 
Thom's profits of £104.7 
million before tax, down from 
£1108.3 million, were better 
than expected, despite the 
problems at Inmos. On the 
stock market its shares initial- 
ly rose by 44p to 51 Ip but later 
fell back to 487p. 

Mr Southgate said the re- 
sults reflected an underlying 
trading improvement of more 
than 15 percent 
There was an extraordinary 
charge of £61 million , includ- 
ing £45 million for the cost of 
rationalization and equip- 
ment write-offs at Inmos. The 
rest of the extraordinary 
charge was made up of £10 
million costs of transferring 
television rental business out 
of Rumbeiows and £6 milion 
costs of dsoing the cable 
business. . 

The final dividend was 
unchanged at 12_5p, leaving 
the total at 17.5p. The divi- 
dend was covered 1 .5 times by 
after tax profits. Attributable 


profits were only £400,000. 

Sir Graham said Thom bad 
completed its programme of 
major disposals. In addition 
to Thom EMI Screen Enter- 
tainment which Thom sold 
controversially to Bond Cor- 
poration, it has recently dis- 
posed of its heating business, 
companies in Metal Industries 
and its cable television 
interests. 

Taken together the proceeds 
amount to £200 million. 

Thom admitted that its 
American music business, 
with pop stars such as Tina 
Turner and David Bowie, 
made a loss of $20 million last 
year. 

Mr Colin Southgate, ! 
Thom's managing director, 
said it was still hoping to find 
a partner for Inmos but that 
would only be possible when 
the company was breaking 
even. 

Jf Inmos does not return to 
breakeven in the current year 
further action win be consid- 
ered, including closure.

London United Invest- 
ments, the insurance company 
and underwriting agent, has 
asked its shareholders for 
£23.4 million net in a one-for- 
two rights issue at 330p. It is 
LUTs third rights issue in 
three years. 

The money will be used to 
allow its subsidiary insurance 
company. Walbrook, to un- 
derwrite a far higher level of 
American casualty business. 

Premium rates in American 
casualty have risen by four to 
six rimes their levels of last 
year and the overall lack of 
capacity in the insurance in- 
dustry means that good busi- 
ness is going begging, the 
company said. J 

LIU has forecast a dividend 
increase this year of more than 
50 percent compared with last 
year’s total of 15p net 

Its taxable profits last year 
climbed by 52 per cent to £9.4 
million, due to the higher 
volume of business and im- 
provement in premium rates

currency movement of £1.5 
million.

It may now not appear until

per cent of the £200 million, 
tend to be on holiday in

who will provide an addition-

Henry Schroder Wagg. the

N Sea oil 
prices 
fall again 

By David Young 
Energy Correspondent 

World oil prices continued 
their slide yesterday with 
North Sea crude being quoted 
at $9.70 a barrel amid con- 
tinuing reports of prices below 
$7 a barrel for high quality 
Middle East crude. 

The foil brings the prospect 
of lower petrol prices closer 
and will also lead to further 
pressure on industrial coal 
prices as the main users in the 
private sector — the chemical, 
paper-making and cement in- 
dustries — are offered lower- 
priced, heavy foel oil. 

The price decline has also 
forced the Norwegian govern- 
ment to reconsider its taxation 
system on oil produced in its 
sector of the North Sea. At 
present royalties from oil from 
the leading Norwegian fields 
range from eight to 16 per cent 
with companies also paying a 
35 per cent tax on profits 
derived from the North Sea. 

The Norwegian government 
is now considering cutting the 
35 per cent tax rate to 30 per 
cent m order to help compa- 
nies maintain their explora- 
tion programmes in the race of 
Ming re vn ues. 

The British Government is 
already under pressure to 
bring forward the scheduled 
date for repayment of Ad- 
vanced Petroleum Revenue 
Tax to help the smaller oil 
companies weather the 
present financial storm. 

The pound fell yesterday, in 
response to the renewed weak- 
ness of oil prices. Sterling’s 
drop, following the money 
supply figures on Tuesday, 
removed remaining City 
hopes for a cut in base rales. 

This is despite the fact that 
inflation figures due today are 
expected to show a fall in the 
rate from 2.8 per cent in May 
to around 25 per cent last 
month. 

The pound fell by 80 points 
to $1.5170 against the dollar, 
and by more than three pfen- 
nigs to DM 3.2 968 against the 
mark. The sterling index fell 
0.6 to 74.9. 

After the June money sup- 
ply figures, showing a 1.25 per 
cent rise in sterling M3 and a 
£2.1 billion increase in bank 
lending, City analysts said that 
the prospect of lower base 
rates now rested with rate 
reductions in other countries. 

Yesterday, Mr Satoshi 
Sumita, the Governor of the 
Bank of Japan, said in Tokyo 
that he saw no reason for a cut 
in the discount rate, currently 
3.5 per cent

NORTH SEA OIL _ 


Mr Timotey Aitken, chair- 
man of tee TV-am company 
which is coming to tee Unlist- 
ed Securities Market, has 
began proceedings for libel 
against Aitkea Home Interna- 
tional, the financial services 
group from white he resigned 
as chief executive in 
November. 

The writ, issued last night 
by his solicitors, DJ. Freeman 
& Co-, concents a letter to 
shareholders written on 
Wednesday by Mr Tony Con- 
stance, his successor at Aitken 
Home, as part of tee grwqi’s 
defence against a takeover bid 
by Mr Nick Oppenheim's 
Tranwood Group. , 

The writ also covers a 
defence document issued last 
month. 

The letter referred to Mr 
Aitken’s acrimonious depar- 
ting from Aitken Home, which 
he ran with his cousin, Mr 
Jonathan Aitken, as well as 


By Richard Lander 

the resignation of the former 
finance director, Mr Michael 
Storey, and tee former proper- 
ty director, Mr John Kidd. 

The letter also alleged over- 
statement of the value and 
profits of Aitken Home’s 
properly interests in the 
company's previous accounts. 

Mr Timothy Aitken’s resig- 
nation, amid reports of a 
testily fend with his cousin, 
marked the start of a tumultu- 
ous period for Aitken Hume. A 
sharp drop in interim profits 
was followed in May by tee 
unwelcome all-paper bid by 
Mr Oppenhrim. who has al- 
ready received acceptances for 
just over 50 per cent of the 
company. 

Shortly before tee bid 
Prince Michael of Kent re- 
signed as a non-executive 
director. 

Aitken Home's results for 
the year to March 31, issued in 
last month's defence docu- 


ment, showed an £8 l 95 million 
loss after extraordinary items 
compared with a million 
profit in 1984-85. 

Yesterday's defence letter 
restated Aitken Home's con- 
tused opposition to Tranwood 
on the grounds that the bid 
could result in tee loss of NSR, 
its valuable US fond manage- 
ment subsidiary. 

Most of NSR’s independent 
directors, who under American 
law have to re-award tee 
company's investment man- 
agement contracts after a 
change of control, have come 
out against Tranwood, al- 
though Mr Oppenbeim hopes 
to change their minds at a 
meeting to be held soon in New 
York. 

It was also announced yes- 
terday teat another Aiteen 
Hume director, Mr Geoffrey 
Hyde, has resigned to take up 
another job in tee United 
States.

Sir John Clark: board mammons on independence 

Plessey squares up 
for big bid fight 


By Cliff Feltham 


Sir John Clark, Plessey's 
chairman, yesterday warned 
GEC that it faces a big battle if 
the Monopolies Commission 
gives it the go-ahead to renew 
its £1.2 billion takeover bid. 

“The board is Hnanimons in 
its determination to protect 
and retain Plessey's in- 
dependence,” he told share- 
holders at the company's 
annual wwHng. . . 

He was also promised- sup- 
port from the Pfessey 
workforce which yesterday re- 
affirmed its resistance to a 
GEC takeover and staged a 
protest march to 10 Downing 
Street 

Sir John, who qnashed re- 
ports that he had held private 
talks with Lord Weinstock, 
the GEC chief, said Plessey's 
prospects as an independent 
company were good. 

He said teat new business 
plans should be generating 
£400 million sales in 1987-88 
and £850 million by tee end of 
the decade. 

Sir John said that a com- 
bined Plessey-GEC group 
would mean that “it would 
become virtually impossible 
for the Ministry of DefenceJo 
obtain competitive tenders for 
naval and air defence radar 


systems except from abroad.” 

Sir John told shareholders: 
“We have no wish to become a 
conglomerate, still less part of 
a conglomerate.” He said the 
Plessey business would be at 
risk If GEC took over. 

In tee City yesterday opin- 
ion was still divided over 
whether the Monopolies Com- 
mission — expected to hand its 
report over to the Secretary of 
Stole next week — will give 
GEC the green tight 

Mr Alan Quinton, electron- 
ics analyst at W GreenwelL, 
tee stockbrokers, said: “Hie 
feeling is teat GEC will get tee 
go-ahead and will then make a 
bid although at tee moment 
Plessey seems to be winning 
more of the pnblte relations 
battle than GEC” 

Mr Doaglas Hawkins, ana- 
lyst with James Capei, the 
brokers, was less sore about 
the outcome and even more 
doubtful whether GEC would 
be prepared to launch a toke- 
. over bid at Plessey's current 
market price. 

k T don't chink Lord 
Weinstock will be prepared to 
line the City's pockets with 
gold. He certainly will not 
want to pay anything like the 
current price,” be said.

lift ban 

By Alison Eadie 

Mr Ian Posgate, once 
dubbed the “Goldfinger” of 
the Lloyd's insurance market 
because of bis underwriting 
success, has lost his appeal to 
be allowed to return to active 
underwriting. 

Lord Wilbeiforce, the head 
of Lloyd's appeals tribunal, 
dismissed Mr Posgate’s appeal 
against Lloyd’s verdict that he 
was not a “fit and proper 
person” to do business in the 
markeL 

Lord Wilbeiforce said that, 
as the Council of Lloyd's had 
before it materia! upon which 


Where are interest 
rates heading? 
Kenneth Fleet’s column 
is on page 23 


it could decide that Mr 
Posgate was not Stand proper, 
its decision was not 
unreasonable. 

He said the only real issue 
was whether he should remit 
to the council specific matters 
raised by the appeals tribunal 
which the council had not 
considered, or ask the council 
to ignore specific matters 
which it had taken into ac- 
coudl Lord Wilbeiforce wrote 
in his decision: “I do not find 
any such matters can be 
identified.” 

The dismissal of his appeal 
appears to mark the end of Mr 
Potato’s four-year battle to 
return to Lloyd's. He said he 
was very sorry the appeal had 
failed. 

Mr Posgate was suspended 
from active underwriting in 
1982 after the Alexander 
Howden affair blew up. Alex- 
ander & Alexander Services, 
the American insurance com- 
pany which look over 
Howden, alleged that $55 
million bad gone misting from 
Howden managed insurance 
syndicates of which Mr 
Posgate was the underwriter. 

Mr Posgate was accused but 
found not guilty by a Lloyd’s 
disciplinary committee of 
misappropriating funds dis- 
honestly, plundering a rein- 
surance company for his 
personal benefit and seriously 
falsifying group accounts. He 
was, however, found guilty of 
accepting a Pissarro painting 
as a bribe and of not declaring 
his stake in the Banque du 
Rhone et de la Tamise. 

The disciplinary committee 
recommended Mr Posgate’s 
expulsion from Uoyd's for 
life, but its verdict was over- 
turned by Lord Wilbeiforce in 
an appeal in May 1985. Lord 
Wilbeiforce substituted a six- 
month suspension on Mr 
Posgate. 

Mr Posgate was prevented 
from returning to work in the 
insurance market after his 
suspension expired because 
Uoyd's ruling council deemed 
him not to be a “fit and 
proper” person.

THE TIMES FRIDAY .UJLY 11 1986 


Balance of power shifts to oil companies 

ic rnntiniiine iinCHtBilUV I 


. Market forces are emerging 
'as a significant determinant of 
■oil prices. However, among 
.‘the other contenders for this 
role, the oil companies as a 
■group may now have more 
'flexibility to exert their influ- 
ence than does the Organiza- 
tion of Petroleum Exporting 

■ Countries. 

, This perhaps surprising 
conclusion can be drawn from 
Ian examination of what has 
:been happening to stocks 
I In classical economic the- 
! cry, he who controls supply at 

■ the margin controls the price. 
’Opec’s grip on marginal oil 

supplies in 1974 combined 
with rising demand was the 
power base from which it was 
able to multiply the oil price. 

The forces causing its subse- 
quent slide were falling de- 
mand and the resultant 
gradual loss of control by 
Opec. As demand fell Opec 
became less able to cut its 
production back further until 
gradually it became virtually 
[powerless to adjust supply at 
the margin. 

However, in this supply and 
’demand equation there was 
another element which is of- 
ten underestimated, but 
which, in the light of what is 
happening now, assumes great 
significance. In the three years 
from 1981 to 1983, the oil 
companies ran their stocks 
down by an average of about 1 
million barrels a day. 

In 1984 and 1985, the 
destocking process continued 
at a slower rate, but was 
probably still close to 400,000 
barrels a day. Inventory was 
therefore a significant source 
of oil supply during the last 



JUL.AUG SEP OCT NOV DEC JAN FEBMARAPRMAYJUN JUL 



JUL AUG SEP OCT NOV DEC JAN FEBMARAPRMAYJUN JUL 


five years. It was also, as Opec 
raised the oil price, the cheap- 
est source. 

Most important of all. it was 
under the control of the oil 
companies, and they drew 
stocks down most heavily in 
the winter months, the time of 
greatest demand. This 
smoothed out the seasonal 
fluctuations in the refiner’s 
requirements from Opec and 
effectively gave the industry at 
least some control over the 
marginal barrel. 

A resumption of Opec con- 
trol is at the root of the 


thinking of those who believe 
that the oil price will stabilize 
in the$I5to$l8 a barrel range 
rn the foreseeable future. This, 
has been forecast to take place 
this autumn 

However, all the evidence 
points to the conclusion that 
Opec will not resume control 
in such a short time. 

To begin with, it appears 
that the oil companies are 
stocking up on a massive 
scale. Oil is plentiful and 
cheap and storage tanks are 
empty. Output from Opec is at 
present estimated to be nearly 


19 million barrels a day. a 
level which is almost certainly 
not justified by underlying 
demand and it is entirely 
possible that stocks are now 
being rebuilt at the rate of as 
much as 2 million barrels a 
day. 

While no one can be sure 
what is happening to demand, 
it clearly is not rising as for or 
as fast as the fall in the price.' 
Oil is still not significantly 
cheaper than other fuels in 
many of its uses. There is also 
a strong antipathy towards oil 
among consumers and there is 


little appetite for switching 
back to what is seen as an 
unreliable energy source. 

Compound this wiih the 
fact that the summer is a time 
of weak demand and it be- 
comes clear that the underly- 
ing demand for Opec oil is 
probably not much more than 
17 million barrels a day and 
the only reason Opec is able to 
produce at 19 million barrels a 
day at all, is because the 
industry is stocking up. 

These replenished slocks 
will give the industry enor- 
mous flexibility. While there 


03 stocks are difficult to 
define and measure. At 
present. Organization for Eco- 
nomic Co-operation and De- 
velopment nations bold stocks 
of more * han 3 billion barrels. 
Industry stocks are thought to 
be at their lowest levels since 
1979, at 75 days of forward 
supply. 

Industry stocks consist of 
stocks at the refinery, of erode 


oil waiting to be processed, 
and refined products awaiting 
sale. 03 contained in tankers 
from the oilfields to the refin- 
ery are usually included. 

Strategic stocks are an 
anachronism from the days of 
oilsbortages and are held ei- 
ther by governments or as a 
result of government direction. 

Consumer stocks, most dif- 
ficult of all to measure, include 


everything from petrol in pet- 
rol stations, fuel o3 in power 
stations to domestic <31 tanks. 

When the o3 price was high, 
the industry ran its stocks 
down for several commercial 
reasons. Most pressing was 
the cost of holding unneces- 
sary inventory when the ster- 
ling price was £30 and interest 
rates were a lot higher than 
they are now. 


Meanwhile, falling demand 
created a surplus of refineries, 
many of which had been built 
in expectation of rising de- 
mand. As these refineries were 
dosed, their stocks were sold. 


Those refineries which re- 
mained were modernized and 
upgraded, and as they became 
more efficient, lower stocks 
were needed to run than. 


is continuing uncertainty in 
the market- created by Opec s 
penchant for holding meetings 
and its inability to agree 
anything except which Euro- 
pean resort it will favour for 
its next meeting, stocks can be 
used as a buffer to smooth out 
fluctuations. 

There have been w weU- 
documented occasions in the 
Iasi 5 years when the compa- 
nies have run down stocks at 
the rate of more than 4 million 
barrels a day. Such periods 
have been brief, but effective 
in eroding Opec's power. 

Compare this with Opecs 
inability to shave 1 or 2 
million barrels a day on its 
output levels and it soon 
becomes apparent where the 
power lies. The oil companies 
appear to have greater control 
over the marginal barrel than 
Opec does. 

For Opec to regain control, 
there .will need to be a material 
and sustained rise in demand. 

As it is the refiners who buy 
oil in the market, they create 
the demand, or choose to use 
stocks as the case may be. 
Ultimately, therefore, market 
forces may now be more 
responsible for current price 
levels than at any time in 
living memory. 

Demand for oil will nse in 
the winter quarters of 1986/7 
as it has in every other year. 
This increased demand will 
perhaps fall on Opec. But if it 
threatens to raise prices, the 
industry may well turn to that 
low cost marginal source of 
supply, its inventories, ensur- 
ing that prices do not rise by

Tidal barrages 
face snags 
on financing 


By Derek Hurts, Industrial Editor 


Irrevocable decisions on the 
future of several energy-pro- 
ducing tidal barrages around 
Britain are still at least three 
years away. ' 

This means that they will 
not test the present 
Government's sceptical ap- 
proach to public sector spend- 
ing where the private sector 
offers an apparent option. 

So it was to some extent 
easy this week for Mr Peter 
Walker. Secretary of State for 
Energy, to give sufficient cash 
belp to boost investigations of 
t iHal barrages on the Severn 
and the Mersey while also 
funding a fresh look at some 
smaller prospects 1 including 
Morecambe Bay and the 
Wash. 

But the arithmetic of the 
biggest of the barrage plans, 
which would throw a 10-mile 
causeway across the Severn at 
a cost of £5.5 billion, suggests 
that the rates of return on the 
sort of investment needed for 
such schemes are relatively 
modest, judged against what 
might be expected to attract 
unstinting private investment. 

The Severn Tidal - Power 
Group (STPG) estimates the 
rate of return at 7.4 per cent 
for a barrage between. Cardiff 
and Weston-super-Mare. A 
less ambitious barrage further 
up river at Avonmouth is 
estimated to have a likely 
return of 7.7 per cent, al- 
though one of the difficulties 
with this siting could be 
extensive silting problems, 
one factor which led STPG to 
favour the Cardiff-Weston 
line. 

The cost of the upper bar- 
rage (£1.1 billion) is only a 
I fifth of the bigger one. On a 


Mersey barrage, which is 
smaller still at a projected cost 
of £450 million, the rate of 
return has been put at a 
minimum of 8. per cent 

The newly-launched Mer- 
sey Barrage Company has 
forecast that its project would 
be a money-maker. But it 
would expect substantial help 
from Economic Community 
sources at the construction 
stage. 

The STPG is more guarded, 
suggesting that the rates of 
return on the Severn are too 
low for private sector financ- 
ing without some Govern- 
ment support. Given the 
inherent risks allied to long 
lead times - it would be near 
the turn of the century before 
the Cardiff-Weston barrage 
would begin producing 
electricty for sale — private 
investors as the only source of 
finance would demand much 
higher rates of return, STPG 

Nobody is making a public 
estimate on what sort of rates 
of return that implies, but a 
good guess would seem to be 
between 12 and 14 per cent. 

It does not mean that rates 
need be as high as that for less 
ambitious schemes if only 
because the lead times are 
shorter. The Mersey barrage 
could be in operation by 1996 
as plans now stand. 


Dearly foe funding problem 
might be tackled in several 
ways. There could be some 
form of underwriting by Gov- 
ernment There could be long- 
term contracts with the 
Central Electricity Generating 
Board, with Government 
backing, to offset risks of low 
oil prices cutting too far for 
comfort the going rate for 
buying in- electricity. 

Yet. eventually, once the 
capital cost of setting up a 
barrage is paid off in 20 yeans 
or so, the running costs would 
be low and profits could run at 
several hundreds of mill ions 
pounds a year. As STPG has 
pointed out, a Cardiff-Weston 
barrage would be a large-scale 
national asset. 

A recent inspection at the 
Ranee barrage in Brittany, 
which has been in operation 
about 20 years, showed that its 
turbines were almost as good 
as when they were installed. 
But such a long timescale 
before equity investors could 
see a rich return is so fer 
outside normal commercial 
experience, STPG pointed 
oul 

What the STPG study 
makes clear is that it should be 
possible to produce electricity 
from a barrage at a cost 
equivalent to that of nuclear 
power stations, undercutting 
coal-fired station costs. 

Various arguments are be4 
ing put forward suggesting 
that the essential variability of 
tidally-produced power is a 
lesser problem than it has 
seemed. 

When the government of 
the day eventually feces a 
decision on how to pus# 
barrage schemes forward there 
is a crucial factor beyond the! 
attraction of a non-polluting 
source of power. Apart from 
the jobs arising during the 
construction phase ' there 
could be substantial job cre- 
ation from barrage schemes 
because of tourism and other 
developments. 

The Severn scheme could 
produce 30,000 longrterm 
jobs, it is estimated. It would 
also provide a new road link 
between South Wales and 
England leading, it is claimed! 
to more industrial develops 
ment.

another dull performance on J* 1 ^ published on Tues- 


Wall Street during the first few 
hours of trading certainly left 
«s mark. 

!_ Share prices may be in a 
nervous mood when trading 
resumes t oday. 

® Shareholders of Manga- 
nese Bronze look set for a dis- 
appointment. The sale of 
the London Taxis Internation- 
al subsidiary, rumours of 
which lifted the shares from 
$2p to a high of 78p this 
year, is off. Manganese is be- 
lieved to have had a firm 
offer of £13 million, including 
the assumption of £6.5 mil- 
lion debt. Manganese is capi- 
talized at only £1 1.8 
million, but the chairman and 
Chief executive Mr Dennis 
Poore apparently wanted 
more. 

, The FT index of 30 shares 
was looking a little tired after 
hours and closed below its 
best levels of the day. Having 
been 12.5 up at 4 pm, its lead 
was reduced to 9.1 at 1340.6 
by the close. The broader- 
based FT-SE 100 was also 
looking anxious after seeing 
an earlier lead of 17.3 reduced 
to 12.1 at 1,626.7. 

Dealers made the most of 
some bener-than-expecied fig- 
ures from Thom EMI which 
hit Slip at one stage, before 
analysts had a closer look at 
them and decided they were 
not all they were cracked up to 
be. Dealers claimed that the 
company had been given a 
rough ride at the analysts 1 
meeting after the figures, 
showing a £60 million loss 


day. scrapping all hopes of an 
imminent cut in base rates. 
The continued weakness of 
the US bond market is also 
affecting sentiment By the 
dose, prices were about £*A 
lower. 

Among the leaders, British 
Telecom continued to rally 
following weakness earlier m 
the week on fears that a future 
Labour Government would 
renationalize the shares at a 
basic 1 3 Op. The group has 
now received news that its 
pricing structure is not to 
come under investigation by 
Oftel, the Government’s 
watchdog for the telecom- 
munications industry. 

BT rose by 4p to 208p, after 
21 2p. Some brokers claim the 
shares, which have fallen 30 
per cent in recent weeks, are 
good value at these levels. 

The property sector contin- 
ues to buzz with speculation 
that a large bid is on the way. 
Yesterday, the speculators' 
money was resting on Proper- 
ty Holdings Investment Trust, 
up 8p at 145p. Marketmen are 


talking of a bid of I60p a share 
from rival Greycoat Proper- 
ties. unchanged at 272p. 

That would value PHIT at 
£127 million. 


tnrmpH w v 5l9p. Lloyds stood out with a 

leap of 22p to 419p, still 
battling for control of Stan- 


meiger of British Home Stores 
and Habitat Mothercare, was 
a firm market 7p up at 333p. 
Last night, the group opened 
its latest Mothercare store in 
London's Knightsbridge and 
invited a number of retail 
analysis to attend Some obvi- 
ously thought they might have 
something interesting to say. 

Bid hopes lifted Bestobefl 
by 15p to 500jx There is 
growing speculation that 
BTR’s 24 per cent stake may 
soon be up for grabs and that a 
full bid for Bestobell will 
follow. 

The big four high street 
clearing banks enjoyed their 
best performance in weeks as 
investors came in for the 
shares ahead of the interim-

[COMMENT Kenneth FleetJ 


Pound casts shadows 
over interest rates 


dividend season. There is also 
talk that a bullish broker’s 
circular may be on the way. 

The whole sector has been 
under a cloud recently follow- 
ing the £700 million-plus 
rights issue from National 
Westminster in May. But now 
that has been absorbed by the 
market with only the mini- 
mum of blood letting, inves- 
tor are starling to lake a more 
favourable view towards the 
sector. 

Barclays rose by 10p to 
52 9p. after 532p, Midland 7p 
to 549p, after 552p. and 
National Westminster 7p to 


market on Wednesday nighL 
The shares finished 28p lower 
at 774p. 

in drinks, Guinness enjoyed 
a satisfying lOp rise to 343p 
after announcing that it 
planned to buy back some of 
its own shares for cancellation 
following this year’s successful 
offer for Distillers. 

It is paying £133.8 million 
for the 42.04 million shares, 
equivalent to 318p per 
Guinness share, allotted to 
Greatbrand — a private bold- 
ing company set up by 

• Oliver Resources, the 
USM-q noted exploration 
company, fell Ip to a new 
low of 9p yesterday, hot there i 
could be good news in the 
pipeline. Drilling in the Celtic 
Sea near Offshore Island 
on block 50/3, where Oliver 
has a 15 per cent stake, is 
going well. Several strikes 
have been made nearby 
and the operator Enterprise 
remains optimistic. 

Guinness and Morgan Gren- 
fell — and another £135.2 
mfi/ion. equivalent to 27Sp a 
share, for the 48.58 million 
shares bought by Morgan 
Grenfell on behalf of 
Guinness during the Distillers 
bid battle. 

Among the smaller brewers, 
Belhaven Brewery rose by 3p 
to equal their year’s high of 
62p after learning that Mr 
Nazmu Virani. the chairman 
of the privately- owned hotel 
and leisure company, Virani 
Group l) K. had sold 4 million 
Belhaven shares (15.58 per 
cent) to Establissement 
Novedil, a Geneva-based 
company owned by the power- 
ful Shohet family. This re- 
duces Virani Group's holding 
in Belhaven to 2.32 million 
shares, or 9.06 per cent of the 
capital. 

The rest of the brewers 
enjoyed early selective sup- 
port, but failed to hold their 
best levels of the day. Allied 
firmed 2p to 343p. after 345p, 
Bass 7p to 775p and Scottish 
& Newcastle 2p to I99p, after 
201 p. Whitbread tost an early 
lead, to end 3p lighter on the 
day at 290p, while Grand 
Metropolitan lost 5p at 393p. 

In the Unlisted Securities 
MarkeL shares of Midland 
Mart, the livestock market 
operator, leapt 38p to I83p 
after receiving an agreed bid of 
£6.8 million from Oyston, 
Britain’s biggest privately- 
owned estate agency business. 

Oyston is offering 180p in 
cash for each Midland share 
and the board of Midland are 
urging shareholdere to accepL 
The group joined the USM in 
1980. 


It is a testing time for those who 
believe that the sterling exchange rate 
against the currencies of the European 
Monetary System is an important 
element in the assessment of mone- 
tary conditions. Yesterday the pound 
fell below DM3.30, thought of by 
many as the lower limit of sterling’s 
unofficial EMS band. 

And, taken in combination with 
Tuesday’s better, but still very bad, 
money supply figures, this latest 
development could have nasty 
consequences. 

Inflation figures, due today, should 
show a rate, measured by the retail 
prices index, of around 2.5 per cent 
last month. Other things being equal, 
interest rates might follow inflation 
down, but they are not equal. This 
new and worrying indicator of mone- 
tary conditions could “fix” interest 
rates at present levels, or worse. 

Before considering this possibility is 
is important to bear in mind what 
“shadowing the EMS” means. The 
dollar, undergoing its own correction, 
is clearly not a suitable touchstone for 
British monetary policy. A rise in die 
pound against the dollar, or a fall as 
happened yesterday, says nothing 
about the tightness or otherwise of 
policy here. 

The dollar’s value is clearly a major 
influence on the sterling index: what 
was needed was a measure of the 


pound's average value excluding the 
dollar. This meant more or less, the 
EMS currencies or, in shorthand, the 
sterling-mark exchange rate. 

So is yesterday’s fall to DM3.29 a 
sign that all that liquidity sloshing 
around the system has begun to leave 
for the continent for its summer 
holiday? Perhaps, but there is an 
additional complicating factor. 

With Brent crude below $10 a. 
barrel the oil price — ignored for 
many months — is again news for the 
financial markets. And the sterling- 
mark exchange rate has shown itself 
highly sensitive to oil prices, at least 
during those periods when the foreign 
exchange dealers take note of what 
their counterparts on the Rotterdam 
spot market are doing. 

Even if oil temporarily consigns the 
pound's value against die EMS cur- 
rencies to the file of diffi cull-to- 
rn terpret monetary indicators, the gilt 
market and the money markets have 
now more or less given up on lower 
base rates. 

Whether it was the rejection of a 
discount rate cut by Bank of Japan 
governor Satoshi Sumita, or the 
pound’s increasingly wobbly appear- 
ance, traders decided yesterday after- 
noon that, for the time being, the 
game was up. 

It is a view, as things stand, with 
which it is hard to quarreL 


Mourning becomes Electra 


Investors in the Electra Risk Capital I 
fund said yesterday that they were 
“bitterly resigned” after the annual 
meeting where it was revealed that 
two-thirds of the value of their 
investment had been lost 
The fund was launched in 1981 by 


sider that there are a couple of 
potential stars left in the 12 remaining 
companies. Nevertheless, one is left 
wondering how, with Electra’s reputa- 
tion for investment in unquoted 
companies — and with such blue chip 
names on the board — so many wrong 


Electra Risk Capital, a subsidiary of judgements were made. 


the Electra Investment Trust, under 
ihe terms of the Business Start-Up 
Scheme which allowed investors tax 
relief on investment in certain un- 
quoted companies. 

The half-year report to June 27, 
1986, published yesterday, shows that 
of the 32 unquoted companies in- 
vested in by the fund, only 12 are still 
trading. The remainder have generally 
been sold for nominal ammounts or 
have gone into liquidation. 

This means that of the total of £8.68 
million invested by Electra Risk 


Some investors voiced their 
disatisfaction after yesterday’s meet- 
ing with the amount of information 
provided by the managers — with just 
cause. The report provides far too 
little historical information, but it 
cannot disguise the feet that the 
second fund launched by Electra 
invested in a number of the doomed 
companies in the first fund. 

Michael Stoddart the chairman of 
Electra Management, which now 
manages the Electra funds, denies that 
the second fund was used to prop up 


Capital, whose board earlier included ailing companies. He said:“We had a

“1 don’t much care how you 
got in there , Binder old bean, 
but I do wonder why . "

We all know that Sir Bernhard Binder was too 
substantial a figure to climb into the bottle. It must have 
been made around him. 

This, as he no doubt explained to R-Ashton Hamlyn, 
is deeply symbolic of our attitude to accountancy: 

You best get inside your client's business by 
arriving early and staying put 

Following in our founder’s footsteps, our East 
Anglian partners have spent some years in plastic bottles. 

We’ve helped the manufacturers grow from 20 
employees to 120; from one factory to two; and add a 
building-products subsidiary. 

During this time, we’ve done their auditing and 
accounting, naturally, and all the other things that 
major Chartered Accountants do. 

But we get a lot more personal than that 
Because in our Private Company Services, 
corporate and personal matters are inevitably 
intertwined. 

We pay particular attention to share 
ownership and the retention of family control. 

We transfer capital into funds for children. 

JVe help our clients write their wills. All sorts 
of things. 

One Mp had been so busily building 
his business that when we found him at 
forty, with a wife and two kids, he had 
neither pension nor life assurance. 

We swiftly fixed him up with both, 
of course. It’s surprising what funds you 
can generate by reducing taxable profits 
and replanning the ownership of company 
property. 

Perhaps we can arrange some 
profitable surprises for you. The coupon 
reveals all.

than in the previous year at 
£448 million, but this year 
they should foil to about £350 
million compared to share- 
holders' funds of £581 mil-

will be offset by the loss of

Political developments 

The continuing turmoil in our society has had - as many 
participants intended that it should have - a significant adverse 
effect upon South Africa's fortunes, and we are ail the poorer for 
that. Yet the process of change has continued. The State 
President has kept to his commitment to press ahead with his 
reform programme, notably by repealing the pass laws and 
system of influx control. Repeal removes one of the principal 
pillars of apartheid, demolishes some of the barriers between 
richer urban insiders and poorer rural outsiders. They constitute 
a major step towards the abolition of statutory apartheid and 
the normalisation of our society. 

The latest moves, however, have failed to impress large 


Industrial relations 

It is worth recalling here that when black trades unions 
became free to participate in the collective bar gaining system 
they proceeded to represent their members' interests in what 
by-and -large were democratic structures and in ah increasingly 
mature way. While the process by no means has been easy, the 
experience has shown that disparate groups can come together 
presenting very different proposals, and reach agreements 
acceptable to all parties. In essence, the political negotiations a 




acceptable to all parties. In essence, the political negotiations at 
the centre will require the same goodwill and desirelor

settlement. 

Naturally, all this cannot proceed in an environment clouded 
by the restrictions imposed by a state of emergency. No one 
should doubt, however, that the attempt to replace apartheid, 
with a functioning democracy, supported by an economic system 


ZA-T j .""‘ 


capable of creating wealth on the requisite scale, will be 
extraordinarily difficult, not least because some of those who 
now practise violence for their own political ends will not easily 
be persuaded to foresake violence - indeed their attempts to 
thwart evolutionary change are likely to grow in proportion to 
its success. In no way is this to excuse or condone the measures 
that have been taken: it is simply to point out that it is naive to 
suppose that the building blocks of pie reform process e«n be 
put in place, or be given a fair chance to work without some 
protection against attack from extre m ists on both sides. It must 
be emphasised, however, that such protective measures will 
enjoy widespread support only when full democratic 
opportunities and the rale of law prevail . 

While the will of the South African government and political 
parties will be the major factor in determining the success of this 
transition, the international community can make an important 
contribution to it. We most hope that western nations, in 
particular, will not allow themselves to be pressured into 
adopting punitive measures which would undermine hoth the 
franstional phase and the success ofthe post-apartheid society 
The West as much as South Africa needs to take dw?i«rinng that 
are soundly informed by a strategic vision of their long-term 
consequences. Any action taken now. primarily as an emotional 
response to the gravity of the situation here, is bound to be at 
the expense of freedom and justice in Sooth Africa, for if our 
nascent and fragile democratic institutions are denied a strong 
economic underpinning they will oertainly give way to tyranny 


sections of the black South African community or of 
international opinion. In particular, many black leaders are 
refusing to participate in the interim political structures 
proposed by the government as a means of reaching the 
objective to which President Botha committed the National 
Party in his speech at the opening of Parliament, namely the 
negotiation with black leaders of a new constitution on the basis 
of an undivided Republic of South Africa, a universal franchise 
and one citizenship for alL Their refusal is to be explained partly 
by their bitterness at being excluded from the 1984 constitution, 
which accentuated feedings of suspicion, cynicism and 


impatience. Among the international community, where lack of 
trust and cynicism also prevail, appreciation of what the State 
President has achieved tends to be further inhibited by a 
simplistic view of our problems. 

The over-riding reason, however, for the reluctance of black 


people to participate in the reform process, and of the 
international community to endorse it, is that it fails to take 
account of the now widespread belief that the right of political 
participation has to be extended to all South Africans before 
interim constitutional discussions or negotiations can get under 


interim constitutional discussions or negotiations can get under 
way. This belief, which is supported by the principal institutions 
ofSonth African business, applies as much to the proposed new 
structures of government at the local, regional ana provincial 
level as at the national leveL Whatever improvements are made 
to their form, these structures will stiU have problems in 
establishing their legitimacy, and hence in attracting the 
participation of credible black leaders, until political prisoners 
and proscribed organisations are free to participate in political 
affairs. 

That course carries the risk of a further escalation of violence 
But there is no course open to South Africa which does not 
involve risk The least dangerous, I am convinced, is to confront 
the issue of politically motivated violence by opening up the 
opportunities for direct political action. There is encouraging 
evidence that if this were done, the majority of South Africans 
would wish to take part in the political process on a democratic 
basis, and would favour negotiation rather than violence 

A failure of nerve at this juncture will lead to a calamitous 
situation of political drift, with the economy sliding towards a 
state of siege as the initiative passes to the men of violence and 
the international pressures to change us or isolate us steadily 
increase 

1 1 is difficult to avoid the conclusion that the piecemeal 
approach to reform, whatever virtues it may once have "had in 
tenns of electoral expediency, has reached the limit of its 
usefulness. 1 believe that the unbanning of political parties and 
the freeing of political prisoners will not be sufficient to get the . 
constitutional negotiations properly under way, nor to minimise 
the throat of furtner sanctions The' residual elements of - 
apartheid as well must be expunged from the statute book 1

YOUR OWN BUSINESS 


Shell shows the way, says BIC 


A new attempt to tackle the equity gap 
for small businesses in search of only 
modest backing is being mounted by 
Business in the Community (BIC) but 
with a special emphasis on helping the 
especially small business. These are the 
ones needing only a few thousand 
pounds. 

BIC. which is the umbrella organiza- 
tion for local enterprise agencies, called 
this week for large companies to set up 
enterprise loan funds 10 help new 
entrepreneurs on the lines of that 
launched in May by Shell UK. the oil 
company. Shell in a £500.000 scheme, is 
staking six local enterprise agencies to to 
make loans of up to £5,000 for small 
businesses, especially those involving 
young people. 


By Derek Harris 

Sir Raymond Potter, the former 
chairman of the Halifax Building Society 
who has chaired a BIC working party on 
support for small businesses, believes the 
Shell scheme should prove successful 
He argues that it should be more widely 
copied and backed by complementary 
local authority schemes. That, he added, 
“would go a long way towards dosing, 
effectively and efficiently, the funding 
gap." 

A BIC survey showed that for most of 
those going to enterprise agencies for 
help, their greatest difficulty was in 
finding especially small amounts of 
capita] of £2.000 or less. 


The working party came up with a 
number of action ideas. There will be 
discussions with credit unions on pro- 
viding loans as an extension of their 
largely persona! expenditure lending to 
ethnic minorities. 

The banks are also id be pressed to use 
the Government's Loan Guarantee 
Scheme for loans of less than £5.000. 
Enterprise agencies have offered to help 
with monitoring so as to reduce banks' 
otherwise onerous administration cost 
for such small loans. 

BIC is also looking to local authorities 
to help with small loan initiatives as well 
as changes to the Business Expansion 
Scheme to make it easier for localised 
BES syndicates to be established by 
enterprise agencies. 


Pinball wizards 
hit the jackpot 

By Roger Pearson 

As young men. Jim Crompton and his 
late brother Alf bought an old, broken 
down pin table for five shillings. While 
working in the kitchen at the rear of their 
mother's London fish and chip shop in 
Acton they stripped it down and restored 
it to working order, and found a 
customer lo buy it for £1. 

That low key entry into the world of 
amusement trade provided the founda- 
tion for a business which today, many 
years later on, has established the 
Crompton name on a world wide basis. 
For the past 30 years the Crompton 
family have played a major role in 
shaping the International amusement 
machine manufacturing industry by 
providing a string of best selling 
machines. 

After further involvement dealing in 
amusement equipment following then- 
first foray into the trade, the brothers 
prioneered what is one now one of the 
most popular types of amusement arcade 
equipment on the market today — the 
'pusher'. These are machines in which 
coins put in by players build up on a 
moving play deck. Eventually, as players 
continue to feed the machine, some 
coins are pushed into pay out boxes as 
prizes. 



Jim Crompton (right) with his son Gordon and their award 
winning maehin ^ t rnmwlik© < 


Over die past quarter of a century 
customers in countries from America to 
Japan and all over the UK, have 
provided a constant demand for Cromp- 
ton ‘pushers'. Some 25,000 have been 
sold in all ranging from single player 
machines to one giant which offered 20 
play positions. 

It is close to impossible to enter any of 
the UK's 2.000 or so amusement arcades 
and not find a Crompton machine. They 
have a reputation for lasting and some 20 
year old machines are still in daily 
operation. 

Today the business is run by Jim 
Crompton and his son Gordon — Alf 
Crompton died 20 years ago — and is 
based at two factories at Ramsgate, Kent 
Between them they offer 1 5,000 square 
feet of production and administrative 


floor space and provide work for a staff 
of 40. 

The company, which currently has 
five different models on the production 
line, one of them a British Amusement 
Catering Trades Association exhibition 
award winner, exports to at least 25 
different countries of which Japan and 
the US are the major sales sources. 
Around 75 per cent of sales today are to 
overseas customers. 

The company turnover at present is 
about £1.5 million. With diversification 
in the form of new style machines in 
development in the company’s design 
and work shop, plus an assembly under 
licence deal with a Belgian amusement 
machine company, Crompton sales and 
turnover graph shows a constant up- 
wards swing. 


BRIEFING 


■ The Union of Independent 
Companies, whose national president is 
the assiduous Bill Poeton, at Its 
national council meeting this week 
decided to amend its rules so it can 
more directly lobby directorates of the 
EEC. This reflects the UIC belief that 
smaller businesses could gain a lot from 
the activities of the EEC, notably its 
competition directorate. 

But Barry Baldwin, UlC’s national 
chairman, made another appeal for the - 
Government to bring in legislation to 
protect small businesses from big 
corporate predators. He said.- “Some 
substantial corporate groups are getting 
fatter but not fitter, competition policy 
is in a shambles and we have to look to 
the EEC for powerful legislative 
sanctions." 


It has also floated the idea of a net 
worth investment scheme which would 
value an investor's shares in a smaller 
business according to the net worth of the 
business. For the borrower it should 
mean cheap cash at the start while the 
investor would gain as foe net worth of 
tiie business grew, UIC says. 

■ The Advisory Committee on 
Telecommunications for Small 
Businesses (BACT) has published foe 
first of a series of small booklets to help 
those who run small businesses to 
become more familiar with foe liberalized 
communications market 
The free pamphlet — Does your 
Business Need a New Telephone System 
— assesses foe benefits of new types 
of apparatus and services 

• Contact for copies: The Office of 
Telecommunications, Atlantic House, -

THE 



TIMES 


A SPECIAL REPORT ON 

JAPAN 



July 11, 1986 


i ei* *: — r*- ■ 


then the 



doubts 


a pan is a country which 
prizes conformity 
; I among ordinary mor- 
ials. Its politicians it 
* likes to be more indi- 
vidual. And in Mr Yasuhiro 
Qakasone it seems to have 
found an individual perform- 
er par excellence. 

% He is a new phenomenon in 
Japanese politics: an image 
politician who knows how to 
exploit his strengths and who. 
for the moment, seems im- 
mune from the effects of his 
weaknesses. 

" His leadership ofthe Liberal 
Democratic Party (LDP) to an 
Overwhelming majority in the 
general elections this week 
Ufos a remarkable triumph for 
a- Prime Minister whose do- 
mestic political record has 
teen less happy than that in 
foreign affairs. 

r The appearance of the so- 
callcd “new leaders” cam- 
paigning hard to improve 
their chances of succeeding 
Mr Nakasone undoubtedly 


Scepticism about 
* the PM’s claims 


fielped the party overall. But 
;he election was largely a 
referendum on the conduct of 
(he LDP and oF its leader over 
the period since he became 
Rrime Minister in 1982. 

« Even if the ruling party had 
Sot wished it thus, the opposi- 
tion parties, and particularly 
for Masashi Ishibashi of the 
Socialist Party, made Mr 
Nakasone an election issue by 
&nsiant references to the way 
the elections were called and 
Sis disbelief of Mr Nakasone's 
CJaims that he would not 
increase taxes after the 

flection. 

- Less than a week before the 
double elections were an- 


junced it looked as though 
Ir Nakasone would not only 


have to give up what turned 
out to be an inspired idea but 
could not expea to extend his 
term of office as Prime Minis- 
ter beyond October. Even as 
the campaign began, the oppo- 
sition were calling hint a liar 
for having engineered the 
double poll while giving the 
impression he had no such 
intention. The charges of du- 
plicity seemed to be finding 
their mark on a politician who 
already had a reputation as a 
“weathervane 

His consistently high stand- 
ing with the public allowed 
him to get away with a lot that 
his rivals could not. but no 
one predicted the scale of the 
party's electoral triumph. 

In any Western democracy 
Mr Nakasone would now be 
assured of another term as 
Prime Minister, with a grate- 
ful party willing to give him 
almost anything he asked. But 
Japanese politics is not that 
simple and the election has. if 
anything, strengthened the po- 
sition of at least one of his 
rivals for the prime 
ministership. 

The election brought back 
into the fold many LDP 
members who failed at the last 
election, many who owe their 
support to the Tanaka faction. 
Though Mr Kakuei Tanaka 
played no immediate role in 
the election after his stroke 
last year, his faction, money 
and influence are still the most 
formidable in the party. The 
Tanaka faction added another 
20 members, most of whom 
will be supporting Mr Noboru 
Takeshita, the finance minis- 
ter. to take over the prime 
ministership. 

Mr Nakasone's own faction 
increased from 49 to 60 but 
though Mr Tanaka was his 
original patron in acquiring 
the LDP leadership, he cannot 
count on much support from 
that quarter now, unless there 





This year is turning o»t to be a 
watershed for the Japanese 
economy. In the tost few 
months there has been a 
growing realization that ndi: 
cal changes have to take place 
if it is to continue on the path 
of rapid expansion. 

The phenomenal success of 
export-led growth was good 
while it lasted. But. faced with 
the threat of a bride wan of 
American protectionism, Ja- 
pan has started to change. 

In ApriL the special com- 
mission on the economy ap- 
pointed - by Yasuhiro 
Nakasonejhe Prime Minister, 
produced its report - The 
group, under the chairman- 
ship of Haruo Maekawa, for- 


promotion of a more effident 
distribution system within Ja- 
pan and stricter penalties 
against companies unfairly. 






keeping out imports. ; 

The Maefcawa rei 




The Maefcawa report was 
followed 1 the next day by what 
has become a familiar feature 
in Japan during the last two 
-years — economic pack ag es 
which simultaneously provide 
a small boost to the economy, 
and launch some , new pirn 
gramme fo encourage imports. 

However, because Mr 
Nakasone. and Nobora 
Takeshita. his finance miais- 
ter, are .constrained by the. 
target of reducing reliance on 
so-called deficit-financing 
bonds by 1990, the boosts to 


mer governor of the Bank of ■ the economy have been snnriL 


Victory smile: Yashuhiro Nakasone dots the eye of a lucky daruma doll after his party’s biggest-ever election win. 
The Libera] Democrats took 304 of 512 seats in the Lower House and 74 of 126 in the Upper House 


is an overwhelming ground- 
swell in the party for his 
continuance in office. 

If he is to stay, he must 
enlist support from the other 
leading factions within the 
party. These are led by two 
former Prime Ministers. Mr 
~Zcnko Suzuki and Mr Takeo 
Fukuda. and Mr Toshio 
Komoto. 

Mr Suzuki and Mr Fukuda 
can muster 59 and S6 support- 
ers respectively. Both have 
their own factional candidates 
for the premiership and nei- 
ther has any great love for Mr 
Nakasone. 

Will they throw their sup- 
port behind Mr Nakasone for 
an extension of his term or a 
change in the party rules to 
allow him a third term ? 

Mr Suzuki would like to see 
his proiSgS. the former foreign 
minister. Mr Kiichi 
Miyazawa. as Prime Minister 
and Mr Fukuda has his money 
on the present foreign minis- 
ter. Mr Shintaro Abe. In order 
for Mr Nakasone to win an 
extension or a third term, 
significant support must come 


from the Suzuki and Fukuda 
factions. 

If there is a third term for 
Mr Nakasone.it will signal 
what the public response to 
him is already indicating: that 
the Japanese public at least is 


A public wish for 
more of the same 


happy with a forceful, decisive 
leader who will reflect the 
country's standing in the 
world. The record show? that 
a strong Japanese leader is 
usually followed by a weaker, 
less decisive one but when the 
public went to the polls they 
knew that the Nakasone era 
could last only until October 
according to the present rules, 
and therefore the resounding 
vote of support for Mr 
Nakasone seems to indicate 
that the public at large wants 
more of the same. 

Whether the bureaucracy 
and the rest of the party sees it 
the same way is another 
question. 

Mr Nakasone is the sort of 
Japanese leader with whom

foreign nations feel they can 
deal: he tells them what they 
want to hear and gives every 
impression of being deter- 
mined to carry out his prom- 
ises. But it is precisely his 
predeliction for making prom- 
ises over the heads of the 
bureaucracy and even mem- 
bers of his own parly which 
makes him less popular with 
some at home. 

Because of this. Mr 
Nakasone has built up a fund 
of- resentment against him in 
certain quarters, resentment 
that may now make his path to 
an extension or a third term 
difficult, if not impossible. For 
many people's taste Mr 
Nakasone is already too sure 
of himself, already too prompt 
to claim a party success as his 
own. If he wants a third term 
he must tread carefully. 

Mr Nakasone's appeal to 
the public from the campaign 
trail that he be allowed to 
finish his programme of re- 
form will probably provide 
the avenue for the continua- 
tion of his tenure. This au- 
tumn the Diet (parliament) 
must tackle its most complex 


piece of legislation for some 
time: a bill to provide for the 
privatization of the Japanese 
National Railways. 

This is likely to be a 
contentious piece of lawmak- 
ing which most probably will 
last until at least October, 
when Mr Nakasone’s term of 
office as party president ex- 
pires. If the party finds itself in 
the middle of bargaining on 
this issue it would not be a 
propitious time to be diverted 
into a search for a new leader 
of the party, especially if there 
is no paramountly obvious 
successor. 

In that case there will be a 
strong argument for the exten- 
sion of Mr Nakasone's term at 
least until-the end of the year 
and most probably beyond 
that By that time the need For 
ihe LDP to increase taxes may 
become so pressing that the 
other contenders may be only’ 
too happy to leave such a 
distasteful task to a man who 
seems to be able to dose the 
electorate with strong medi- 
cine and get away with iL

shorter working horns and

In parallel with this, a policy 

2L!! l ? n ? I0naHziri 8 ^ cur- 
rent has been pursued io give 

the yen a place in the interna- 
tional monetary system com- 
mensurate with Japan's 
tmponance, both as an eco- 
nomic power and the world's 
bifflest capital exporter. 

As with many things Japa- 
nese, the pace of liberalization 
and internationalization has 
looted, at least to outsiders, 
painfully slow. But, as on 
trade issues, Japan has had to 
•earn to respond to pressure 
tram overseas. 

Already this year the Minis- 
ny of Finance has broken the 
deadlock in a long-running 
dispute with the Bank of 
England over securities li- 
cences. Three British mer- 
chant banks, S G Waibure. J 
Henry Schroder Wagg and 
ICleinwort Benson, have been 
given securities licences in 
Japan. 

. More importantly, the min- 
istry has opened the way for 
subsidiaries of the clearing 
banks to operate in the huge 
Tokyo securities market The 
pioneering operation is that of 
County Bank, a subsidiary of 
National Westminster. To 
comply with ministry regula- 
tions that no more than 50 per 
cent of a securities subsidiary 
is owned by a bank. National 
Westminster has entered into 
partnership with the Swire 
Group and BP. 

But opening up Japan's 
financial system has meant 
more than simply adopting 
reciprocal arrangements with 
other countries. 

In 1970 there was just one 
issue of yen-denominated for- 
eign bonds. Currently, such 
issues average 1J00 billion 
yen (£4.7 billion) a vear. 

The Ministry of Finance has 
been discussing with Japanese 
corporations this year the 
issue in Tokyo of bonds

Stock Exchange. 

A Tokyo presence, essential 


to fulfil the concept of 24-hour 
trading between London. New 
York and the Far Eastern 
markets, is, for most of the 
foreign participants, not yet a 
profitable venture. 

Nor is it easy to find 
alternative sources of profit. 
Corporate finance has so far 
proved a tough nut to crack 
lor foreign firms. In some 
areas where foreigners un- 
doubtedly have the lead in 
expertise, such as options and 
futures, the authorities have 
ensured that the pace of 
development in Tokyo is slow 
enough io allow the domestic 
firms to catch up. 

Foreign securities firms 
handle a tiny proportion, av- 
eraging 1-2 per cent of market 
turnover in Tokyo. Jardine 
Fleming is the markel leader 
in equities, while the Ameri- 
can houses have the best of a 
small foreign markel share in 
bonds. 

The presence of foreign 
securities firms in Tokyo, and 
its counterpart, Japanese oper- 
ations in New York. London 
and other centres, will speed 
the process of convergence 
between different financial 
systems. The number of for- 
eign firms listed on the Tokyo 
Stock Exchange, although 
only 30. is growing at between 
10 and 20 a year. 

This itself brings pressure to 
bear for aligning the Japanese 
market with those in other 
countries. 

Encouraging the develop- 
ment of the yen as a reserve 
currency is proving more 
difficuItJapan is the world's 
second largest economy, ex- 
cluding the Soviet Union, but 
the yen's role remains a 
relatively minor one. Only S 
per cent of the currency 
reserves held in central banks 
around the world are in yen. 

The problem has arisen 
because Japan's financial de- 
velopment has lagged well 
behind its economic progress 
and, moreover, its domestic 
market in financial services 
has traditionally been even 
better protected than the mar- 
ket for goods. g 


Hi-tech is natural order of things 


Technological innovation 
usual jy depends as much upon 
individual inventive genius as 
it does upon the willingness of 
a wider public to adopt its 
fruits. While Japan has vet to 
make a name for itself con- 
cerning the former require- 
ment ihe natioh is favourably - 
.disposed in its public attitudes 
to new technologies. 

This positive attitude to- 
wards the future is reflected in 
the country’s increasing 
strength in key international 
sectors such as semiconduc- 
tors and fibre-optics. Also in 
its readiness to use technol- 
ogies that are controversial in 
their social impact — includ- 
ing robotics and nuclear pow- 
er generation — and the 
boldness of the research iniua- . 
fives it has mapped out for the 
remaining years of this 
century. 

The origins of Japan's ready 
acceptance of innovation 
probably lie in the nation's 
philosophical and religious 
traditions. These favour pragr 


matism and an acceptance of 
the transitory. 

Change, including techno- 
logical advance, is seen as the 
natural order of things in 
Japan, and the intensively 
competitive nature of the 
society further adds to the 
resulting dynamism. — -- - 

The telephone card offers a 
simple example of the differ- 
ent reception which awaits a 
new technology in Japan, 
compared to that m Britain. 
Britain was the first nation to 
introduce the phone “credit 
card". Several years on, how- 
ever. the cards are still in 
limited use, converted booths 
are scarce and one has to 
search even harder for card- 
saJes outlets. 

In Japan the story was quite 
different within two years of 
introducing phone cards, they 
were in widespread use, 
booths and card machines 
easy to find and - especially 
characteristic - a huge new 
industry has blossomed 
around the printing on the 


cards of advertisements and 
messages. 

One might have expected 
the Japanese, with their war- 
time experience of atomic 
bombings and consequent 
“nuclear allergy”, to draw the 
line at nuclear-power technol- 
ogies, and because of the 
nation's high susceptibility to 
earthquakes. 

On the contrary, the recent 
Chernobyl disaster caused 
barely a ripple of dissent and, 
with 33 nuclear power plants 
in operation, Japan now ranks 
fiffh in the world as a nuclear 
power operator. Nuclear facil- 
ities already provide 13.9 per 
cent of its overall electricity 
generation requirements, a fig- 
ure scheduled to grow to 19 
per cent by 1990. 

However, in regard to its 
celebrated **5th Generation 
Computer” project, there are 
signs that Japan's Utopian 
portrayals of technological 'de- 
velopment will backfire. This 
aims to produce by 1992 a 
machine capable of handling

inference as the basic unit of 
operation — in contrast to 
conventional computers 
which rely on arithmetic 
processes. 

At its inception in 1982 the 
boldness of this initiative 
attracted worldwide attention. 

The project has recorded 
undeniable achievements, but 
scepticism is growing among 
foreign observers as to wheth- 
er the venture remains on 
course. 

Major research programmes 
in Japan also cover such areas 
as new materials, man-ma- 
chine interface technolopes, 
direct-drive assembly robots 
and multi-megabit semicon- 
ductors. They are typically 
long-term, broad-based and 
ambitious and their research- 
ers single-minded — qualities 
which cause justified concern 
among the fragmented re- 
search establishments of the 
European Community.

Economic 
miracle 
starts to 
falter 


from facing page 
tice and for the purposes of 
international comparison, in 
dollars, the sharp rise in the 
yen's value produces, it is 
argued in Tokyo, a highly 
misleading picture. 

In dollar terms, exports 
have been rising strongly so 
far this year and imports 
falling back. This why 
forecasters are predicting a 
sharp widening of the balance 
of payments surplus in 1986. 

Meanwhile, growth in the 
economy has stalled as busi- 
nessmen have cancelled in- 
vestment plans until it 
becomes dearer what is likely 
to be left of the export markets 
they have built np. In the first 
three months of 1986, gross 
national product fell by 0.5 per 
cent. 

Several countries have expe- 
rienced a weak first quarter, 
before adjusting to the new era 
of cheap oil. But the Japanese 
decline was notable as the first 
quarterly gnp fall for II yeans. 
There was a drop of 4.9 per 
cent In export volume and the 
rate of increase in investment 
spending was just 0 3 per cent 

It is generally expected that 
the economy, as in other 
countries, will gather strength 
as the year progresses. And 
inflation should fall to zero 
this week or next. But Japan is 
unlikely to enjoy the rosy 
prospect of growth without 
inflation for too much longer. 

More painful adjustment 
lies ahead and that is likely to 
prove the dominant factor for 
the economy in the years 
ahead.

A switch 
to the 
private 
track 


Denationalization of public corporations 
in Japan stems from the need to reduce a 
long-term national debt of 168300 
billion yen (about £673 billion), the 
equivalent of more than 50 per cent of 
gross national product 

The move is part of a broad pro- 
gramme of administrative reform initiat- 
ed in 1981 and aimed at d iminishing the 
role of government and thereby its debt 

The three main corporations are 
Nippon Telegraph & Telephone (NTT), 
Japanese National Railways (JNR) and 
Japan Tobacco (JT), which also bandies 
the salt monopoly. In addition, the 
government intends to sell its minority 
share in Japan Air Lines (JAL). 
m Nippon Telegraph & Telephone 

NTT changed from public corporation to 
joint stock company and lost its telecom- 
munications monopoly on April 1, 1985. 
However, the government remains the 
sole owner. It is expected to sell half its 
stake over tive years from this 
autumn but for security reasons will not 
reduce its holding below one third. 

Foreigners will not be able to bid bnt 
this ruling may be amended at the end of 
the decade. 

Though still state-owned, NTT can 
raise funds without government peimis-

Since last April it has invested in more 
than 40 new projects, including a 5030 
joint venture with IBM Japan in value 
added network ( VAN) services. 

The new NTT's revenue for the first 
year of operation was 5,100 billion yen 
(about £20.4 billion) and pre-tax profit 
316 billion yen. This is considered a good 
basis from which to make an initial 
offering of shares on the Tokyo Stock 
Exchange. 

The work force has been cut by 26,000, 
to 304,000, since 1980 and the manage- 
ment hopes to trim it by at least 5,000 a 
year in the near future. At the same time 
it will invest in new equipment such as 
mistafled telephone exchanges/These 
changes are designed to make NTT 
better able to face competition.

billion yen (£92 billion) at the end of 

fiscal 1985. . ' _ . 

In clearing it, the government is 
following the recommendations of a 
committee which reported last year. 
These are to split JNR into eight 
companies, three on Honshu and one 
each on Hokkaido, Shikoku and Kyushu, 
one to run the Shmkansen or “beDet 
train" services and one to handle freight. 
These companies are due to start 
operations on April 1, 1987. 

By that time total JNR debt will 
amount to 37,300 bQfion yen, the big 
jump due to the inclusion of latent 
liabilities such as the cost of pensions 
and projects such as the Seikan tunnel 
between Honshu and Hokkaido and the 
bridges across the Inland Sea. 

According to Professor Hiroshi Kato, a 
member of die reform committee, the new 
companies helped by profits from the 
Shinkanseu . operations, will pay off 
14,200 billion yen of this total. The old 
JNR, which will remain inexistence after 
next March, mil shoulder 23,100 billion 
yen, 16,700 billion, yen of which will be 
written off by the government and 5,800 
billion yen met by the sale of land. . 

Professor Kato believes that the new 
companies can be profitable from the 
first year of operation but this will 
depend on cnts in the work force, using 
Sbinksutsea profits to cover Josses else- 
where, and setting up a 1,000 billion yen 
fund to subsidize railways in the three 
outlying islands. The plan is to sell the 
companies as they become profitable. 

in 1980 JNR had 420,000 employees. 
Today the figure is about 277,000 bid the 
reform plan says that only 183,000 will 
be needed by the new companies. 

Of the surplus. 41,000 will be kept on 
in the old JNR for three years, daring 
which they will be retrained and, it is 
hoped, found alternative employment 
Thirty-one thousand jobs will go through - 
natural wastage and 20,000 workers will 
be asked to take rohwtary redundancy. 

♦ Japan Tobacco 

like NTT, Japan Tobacco became a 
joint stock company on April 1 last year 
and is still 100 per cent government- 
owned. The reason for its change of 
status was more political than financial; 
foreign, particularly United States, com- 
panies were urging the government to 
open np the domestic cigarette market 

These companies can now set op their 
own distribution networks In Japan but 


• Japan Air lines 

Moves to sell off the government's 345 
per cent stake have accelerated since the 
crash of a JAL domestic flight last 
August with the loss of 520 fives. Since 
that disaster the whole of the top 
management has been replaced and the 
structure of the company changed. JAL 
shares could start to come on to the 
market next summer. 

Largely as a result of the crash, JAL 
recorded an after-tax loss of 6.7 billion 
yen in the year ending March 31, 1986. 
Total revenue, of 8239 billion yen, was 
down 0.4 per cent, that from domestic 
passengers, 13.4 per cent. The company 
expects to make a small profit fit -fiscal 
1986. 

The prelude to its becoming a wholly 
private concern comes at a time of great 
changes in Japanese aviation. Under the

old policy JAL was assigned internation- 
al routes and domestic ones between 
Tokyo, Osaka. Sapporo, Fukuoka and 
Naha, and All Nippon Airways and Toa 
Domestic Airlines flew domestic routes. 

Now, ANA has started international 
flights — to Guam in March and to Los 
Angeles and Washington later this 
month. It has its eye on the China and 
London rentes, the latter in return for 
non-stop flights by British Caledonian to 
Tokyo. In addition, Nippon Cargo 
Airlines, in which ANA is the main 
shareholder, started flights to San 
Francisco and New York last year. - . 

In return for ANA's more overseas, 
JAL is being permitted to start domestic 
flights between Tokyo and Kagoshima 
later this month and between Nagoya 
and Fukuoka and Tokyo and Komatsu in 
October, la the short term, it aims to 
raise Its share of the domestic market 
from 20 to 30 per cent

Communication is not simply 
sending a message. . . it is 
creating true understanding— swiftly, 
clearly and precisely. 



“I know he's trying to tell me something: 
but what does he really mean?" In our world 
of proliferating technologies and new termi- 
nology, this kind of question is asked a lot 
Here is what we are doing about it. 


itachi’s wide-ranging technologies in communication (from left to right] 
iticaf fibers, optical 1C, advanced telephone exchange system. 

? d sate///te communication. 


Hitachi's scientists and technicians' long- 
term goal is to break the language barrier. 
They are diligently at work today on an array 
of projects that will vastly improve the com- 
munications of tomorrow. 

For example, we've made tremendous 
progress on a system to translate Japanese 
into English. 

This system can be used to translate 
various scientific/technicaf papers and 
machinery/equipment manuals. Special 
"glossaries" can be developed to adapt it for 
fields as diverse as medicine, electronics 
and aeronautics. Further development could 
lead to automatic telephone translation or 
even portable verbal translators for travelers. 

In addition to the machine transla- 
tion system, Hitachi's research specialists 
are also developing advanced transmission 
systems that send your phone calls or 
business data across great distances using 
hair-thin optical fibers and laser beams. 

They are also working on other new methods 
of communications, such as advanced 
telephone exchange systems, satellite com- 
munication systems. TV conferences, 
and so forth. 

At the root of much of this is our highly 
advanced computer technology, because 
Hitachi is producing some of the fastest, 
largest-capacity systems available today. 


We link technology to human needs. We 
believe that Hitachi's advanced technologies 
will result in systems and products that are 
functionally sophisticated but easy to use. 
Our goal in communications -and trans- 
portation, energy and consumer electronics 
as well -is to build products and systems 
that will improve the quality of life the 
world around.

An end to the isolation 


The smallest of Japan's four main 
islands, Shikoku is also the least 
known. Despite its proximity to 
the great cities of western Honshu 
it has remained a backwater, 
popular with tourists for its festi- 
vals and with pilgrims for its 
Buddhist temples. 

Its isolation is about to be ended 
by the building of bridges across 
the Inland Sea to Honshu. Kyushu 
and Hokkaido have already been 
linked to the main island, the first 
by three tunnels and a bridge and 
the second by the world's longest 
undersea tunnel. 

Shikoku is due to follow suit in 
1988_ with the opening of a chain 
of bridges which hop from island 
to island between Kojima and 
Sakaide (see map). Two further 
routes, one to the east via Aw^ji 
Island, the other to the west, are 
also under construction. The total 
cost at 1 982 prices, is estimated at 
3.360 billion yen (about £13.44 
billion). 

Work on the middle route, 
which measures nearly six miles 
from shore to shore, is 75 per cent 
done. Cables strung between huge 
steel towers loop across the sea 
awaiting the attachment of a 
double-deck truss, with a four-lane 
road above and a two-track rail- 
way beneath. 

How will completion of the 
Kojima-Sakaide route affect Shi- 
koku and, in particular. Kagawa 
prefecture? Tadao Maekawa, the 
governor, said it would more than 
halve, to about SO minutes, the 
journey between Takamatsu and 
Okayama on Honshu. The prefec- 
ture wouldbe able to deliver its 
fish, fruit and vegetables more 
rapidly to the big cities on. the 


main island and in return would 
hope to attract higlHech invest- 
ment and tourists. 

Though the Kojima-Sakaide 
route will make the initial impact 
on Shikoku, in the longer term the 
eastern route is expected to have a 
greater effect because of the direct 
link it will provide with Kobe, 
Osaka and Kyoto. Only two 
suspension bridges are needed 
between Kobe and Nanno. but 
both are enormous. The southern 
one. with an 876-metre central 
span over the Naruto Strait, was 
opened last year and in April work 
began on its northern partner, 
across the Afcashi Strait - On 
completion in 1998, it will have 

Objections from 
ferry companies 

the longest central span — 1.780 
metres — of any suspension bridge 
in the world, a record held by the 
1,410-metre Humber Bridge. 

Initially this will be a road link 
only but there is talk of either 
digging a railway tunnel under the 
Akasht Strait or twinging it across 
from Wakayama prefecture to the 
east then taking it over the 
Naruto bridge, which already has 
a spare deck for trains. 

Shinzo Miki, governor of Toku- 
shima, expects many companies 
to invest in the prefecture, thus 
reducing migration. In the other 
direction. Tokushima will be able 
to get its agricultural produce 
more quickly to Osaka and Kobe. 

On the western route, between 
Onomichi and Imabari, two 
bridges have been completed and 
two are being built. The entire 


route, which will have six bridges, 
is due to open early in the next 
century. 

Though the local governments 
welcome the ending of Shikoku’s 
isolation, not everyone is so 
enthusiastic. Foremost among the 
objectors are the ferry companies 
which ply the Inland Sea. Taka- 
matsu is the main departure point 
on Shikoku for the ferries and the 
opening of the Kojima-Sakaide 
bridges will lead to the loss of 800 
jobs. Both Kagawa and Okayama, 
on the opposite shore in Honshu, 
are paying compensation to the 
ferry operators and trying to find 
them other jobs. Compensation 
has also been paid to fishermen 
whose grounds are being disturbed 
and polluted by construction 
work. 

Finally, there are the 800 people 
who live on three of the small 
islands across which the Kojima- 
Sakaide route passes. The inhabit- 
ants of two. Iwakuro and 
Hilsuishi. live from fishing and 
those of the third. Yoshima, have 
had their livelihood removed 
because the bridge has swallowed 
up a granite quarry. 

The benefit, or otherwise, of the 
bridges is likely to spread only 
slowly inland from Takamatsu 
and Tokushima because of the 
lack of good roads. The plan is to 
have eventually a motorway net- 
work in the shape of a figure of 
eight across the island. However, 
officials in Takamatsu said that 
because of the difficulty in acquir- 
ing land from the fanners it would 
be 10-20 years before the Tokushi- 
ma-Maisuyama and Tokushima- 
Kochi legs were opened. 


As an advertising market Japan is 
second in size only to the United 
Slates, although expenditure re- 
mains a fraction of that across the 
Pacific. In 1985 it came to nearly 
3.Q00 billion yen (about £12 
billion), with 35.2 per cent going 
lo television and 28.7 per cent to 
newspapers. However, this im- 
pressive total cannot hide the fact 
that growth of the industry has 
slowed since 1980. 

Last year it recorded the lowest 
rise (2.3 per cent) since 1965. The 
prospects for 1986 are not much 
better. The domestic market has 
reached saturation point and the 
agencies now face the challenge of 
stimulating demand in a way that 
was unnecessary before. 

Will this lead to a change in 
their methods of doing business? 
To answer that one must look at 
some of the peculiarities of the 
Japanese advertising industry. 

First, advertisements tend to be 
less strident than in the West. 
There is more concern for creating 
an image than in making a hard 
sell, for entertaining rather than 
informing 

The Japanese agencies explain 
this approach by saying that they 
rely on intuition rather than logic. 
In the West the product is the core 
and emotion is wrapped round it; 
in Japan the reverse is true. 

Norman MacMaster. head of J. 
Walter Thompson in Tokyo, be- 
lieves that the reason for the 

Style generally 
takes precedence 

differences is structural rather 
than ethnic. 

He points out that for years 
Japanese agencies simply bought 
up TV time and sold it to eager 
advertisers, rather than creating 
ads themselves. Even today they 
subcontract much creative work 
to freelances. In addition, they are 
seen just as suppliers and often not 
shown the market research done 
by their clients. The result is that 
style takes precedence over 
substance. 

Mr MacMaster says that the 
best Japanese advertising, as in the 
West, has both substance and 
style. Economic recession may 
induce more companies to follow 
this lead. 

Another peculiarity of the in- 
dustry is its insularity. In 1985 
Dentsu and Hakuhodo, which 
between them account for nearly 


two-fifths of the market, did less 
than 10 per cent of their business 
overseas. Compare this, at the 
other end of the scale, with 
McCann-Erikson.which gets more 
than 70 per cent of its billings 
outside the US. 

Growth abroad is far higher 
than that in Japan. Dentsu's 
overall billings rase by only I J per 
cent in l985(to $3.5 billion). But 
those ofits joint venture in foreign 
markets with the American agency 
Young & Rubicam were up by 
nearly 16 per cent and are expect- 
ed to climb nearly 40 per cent this 
year. 

Hakuhodo ; s domestic growth in 
1985 was 4.6 per cent, twice the 
national average. But overseas, 
where it is affiliated with 
SSC&B:Linia&. it was more than 
30 per cent. The company plans to 
get 10 per cent of its billings - 
which totalled $1.3 billion in 1985 
— from abroad in three years lime. 

Until the merger earlier this 
jear of three American agencies. 
Doyle Dane Bern bach. BBDO and 
Needham Harper- Dentsu was the 
largest in the world in terms of 
billings - that is. the value of the 
advertisements placed through it. 
However, it lagged behind Young 
& Rubicam. Saatchi & Saatchi and 
OgiJvy in gross income. 

Whereas in the West an agency 
tends to have an exclusive agree- 
ment with an advertiser at a fixed 
commission. Japanese agencies 
will often take less commission, 
particularly when they are com- 
peting for new business. 
Hakuhodo said that while West- 
ern agencies tended to concentrate 
on the more profitable parts of the 
business their Japanese counter- 
parts would lake on less lucrative 
work such as product develop- 
ment and public relations. Now 
that growth is down, these sort of 
services may w-eli be reduced. 

Having built up their business 
through placing ads on television 
and in the press, the Japanese 
agencies have recently moved into 
non-mass media activities such as 
sales promotions, public relations 
and organizing cultural and sport- 
ing events. 

They are also investing in new 
media such as cable television, 
videotex, teletext, satellite broad- 
casting and high definition televi- 
sion. However, these are more of 
an insurance policy for the future 
than an immediate source of 
revenue. For instance, the next

broadcasting satellite is not due to

If the Japanese way of selling is 
different from that of the West, so 
is the relationship between adver- 
tiser and agency. The Western 
model is that of a long-lasting 

It would not 
happen here 

partnership where the two sides 
together manage a brand. 

In Japan, advertisers buy d la 
canc. placing the creative contract 
for a product here and the media 
one there. According to Max 
Cusnir. who runs McCann- 
Erikson in Tokyo, rarely is an 
agency given complete responsi- 
bility for a brand and never the 
whole of a company's account. 
Likewise, one Japanese agency 


will handle business from compet- 
ing clients — for instance, the car 
makers Toyota and Nissan or the 
consumer electronics companies 
Matsushita and Toshiba. This 
would not happen in the West 

On the subject of creative work, 
the big agencies appear to be 
embarrassed by the subcontract- 
ing they do to freelances. Both 
Dentsu and Hakuhodo said that 
all such work was done in-house. 
This assertion was contradicted by 
Satoshi Waianabe of the Japan 
Advertising Federation and by the 
heads of the two biggest foreign 
agencies in Japan. 

One wonders how long it will be 
— unless the likes of Dentsu and 
Hakuhodo strengthen their cre- 
ative departments — before adver- 
tisers try to deal with freelances

The influence of Japanese 
design on Western fashion has 
been overwhelming in the 
1980s. The West has frequent- 
ly looked East for inspiration 
and renewal. But in the first 
half of this decade, Japanese 
designers have exported their 
designs to Europe, set up shop 
in international fashson capi- 
tals and profoundly affected 
the development of taste. 

Japan has challenged the 
sexist concept that dress must 
be based on the shape of the 
body. An emphasis on fabric 
rather than form has set in 
motion a fashion revolution. 

The current flowering of 
Japan’s fashion has its roots in 
Paris nearly 20 years ago. 
Designer Kenzo Takada 
helped to shape French ready- 
to-wear with his colourful 
collections and knitwear 
shapes based on the two- 
dimensional kimono. 

At the same time, his com- 
patriot Issey Miyake, stirred 
by the revolutionary move- 
ment in France in 1968, broke 
away from the French couture 
tradition in which he was 
trained. He rejected elitist 
dress and went back to basics 
- to the cloth itself, its 
potential and performance. 

Both these designer have 
always insisted that they. are 
designers first and only inci- 
dentally Japanese. Yet from 
them have developed the es- 
sential elements of Japanese 
fashion today: a belief in 
fabric, a rejection of the 
Western concepts of form and 
status, and a look that appeals 


to the modem young, of both 
sexes. 

The shock of the new came 
in Paris in the autumn of 
1 982. with the emergence of a 
Japanese school of design, led 
bv two intellectuals and firm 
fnends, Rei Kawakubo and 
Yohji Yamamoto. 

Rei Kawakubo showed war- 
rior women on the march in 
her Comme des Garcons 
shows. They would stride 
without make-up, or with 
bruised and blackened feces, 

in formless clothes in unremit- 
ting blacks and greys, to the 


It has adapted to 
the market-place 


beat of atonal' music. Her 
slashed and tattered clothes, 
sweaters with holes like gru- 
yere cheese and asymmetric 
body wrappings, were on the 
same wave-length as British 
punk and caught the fashion 
mood of the lime. 

But the strength of modem 
Japanese fashion is that it Iras 
grown and adapted to the 
market-place, in a way that 
creative British designers 
must envy. Today's Comme 
des Garcons collections, and 
its increasingly important 
menswear ranges, have com- 
promised with Western taste. 

Five years after the fashion 
bombshell, the strongest of the 
Japanese designers working 
abroad have survived. And 
back home, a new-found con- 
fidence and creative energy 


inspires both design and re- 
tailing. with Japanese stores 
now colonizing Hong Kong. 

Kenzo still works entirely 
within a Western tradition, as 
does Japan’s couturiers Hanae 
Mori. The 60-year-old design- • 
er is known in the West for her 
elegant and beautifully crafted; 
clothes, especially evening 
wear, in Madame Butterfly 
silks and vivid colours. She ' 
first set up business in Tokyo 
in the 1950s and now owns 15 
companies, including the 
wholesale company Studio V. 

In the same colourful tradi- 
tion. but with completely dif- 
ferent clothes, is Kansai 
Yamamoto, whose dramatic 
knitwear and theatrical fash- 
ion spectaculars suggest the 
costumes and drama of Kabu- 
ki theatre. • 

Junko Koshmo came over 
to England in 1973 and. now 
has a successful business of 
young. contemporary 
sport wear, manufacture red in 
Japan and Italy. She is one of 
three designing sisters. Junko 
and Kiroko Koshino both 
work out of Paris. . but the 
three show together in Japan.

Issey Miyake claims that the. 
greatest influence on his fash- 
ion thoughts is Madame 
Vionnet. who invented bias- 
cutting in the 1920s.. Like her, 
Miyake takes a fabric and lets 
it fell freely, rather than" 
cutting and stitching ft into a 
rigid form. He takes that 
concept one stage further by 
creating garments which liter-

way: capes that fell from the

modern times. • .

Cinema’s new double bill of talent and cash 




Bt*T^ 


* -no* »« 


EMq) 


After a long period of relative 
eclipse the Japanese film is 
shining again, with money in 
the home box-office and a new 
lustre abroad. 


There are 6 million VHS recorders in the UK. And the JVC Video- 
Movie is compatible with every single one. An important IWH 
feature but one that 8mm salesmen may be slow to point ouL M W U 


Responsible for the eclipse 
were a declining studio system 

- over-staffed with enormous 
overheads, afraid to take 
chances and wary of new talent 

- and a lack of independent 
money willing to back novel 
projects. 


Typical of the situation were 
the extremes to which Aldra 
Kurosawa, Japan's finest di- 
rector, was put in search of 
frnirfing- Turned down hi his 
own land in his attempts to 
find the money for Ron, the 
director went, Lear-like, from 
place to place before finding 
major funding in France. 
Money for his last three films 


has come from outside Japan. 

There is, however, new mon- 
ey for a range of sntaller- 
budget films. Among, the 
heaviest of the new investors is 
Fuji-TV, which financed both 
Kon Ichikawa's remake of Tie 
Harp of Burma, last year's top 
money-maker, and The Jaf- 
arctic Story ; the most finan- 
cially successful Japanese film 
ever made. CBS-Sony, 
Kadokawa Publishing, Sanrio 
and Seibn-Parco have all pro- 
vided funding and, in «ome 
cases, distribution for the new 
films. 

These companies, all deep 
into diversification, will bank- 
roll projects the big studios 
feel they cannot afford to 
touch. Television stations,de- 
partment stores and publish- 
ing houses do not have studio 
overheads because they have 


no studios, nor do they have 
stockholders demanding in- 
stant profit from -films. 

Yanagimachi, Ogari, 
Morita, Somai and Hayashi. 
are among the directors who 
have benefited from these 


the most popular films, the 
great majority of which- have 
been ^ndepeiiient productions. 






A fairly young and knowl- 
edgeable film-viewing audi- 
ence exists in Japan and high 
admission prices make film-. 
malting a viable business once 
this audience is attracted, 
something which die major 
studios, playing it safe, have 
on the whole felted to do. 

It is a comparatively small 
audience (about 155,000 in 
1985, down from 217,000 in 
1971) but tickets are qmte 
expensive — 1,118 yen (about 
£4.47) on average in 1985, 
against 366 yen m 1971. These 
returns are for those malting 


Among the resuKs is dud 
the old producer system of 
• making . films - (Tobo, Toe, 
Shodukh producers feSsg di- 
rectors what -to do) is giving 
way. The new film money is all 
independent and department 
stores have no film producers. 
Japanese cinema is- conse- 
quently reverting -tb being 
director-oriented, just as it was 
in the great days" of .On, 
Mizognchi, N arose and 
others.

THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 11 1986 


Motoring by Clifford Webb 


The joys of driving a ‘ragtop’ 



Open top care will never be 
a significant force in the 
British market. With a climate 
like ours you are lucky to get 
the hood down for a whole 
day. Indeed my experience 
suggests that a single long 
journey completed without 
recourse to rain protection is 
an event to boast of. 

But when those glorious 
cloudless days do appear the 
sheer exhilaration of driving a 
“ragtop” arc moments to be 
savoured. An added bonus is 
that some of the latest Cabrio- 
lets are better looking than 
their saloon counterparts, 
even with the hood up. 

1 recently enjoyed such a 
day driving the new Peugeot 
205 CT1 on some of the best 
roads and through some of the 
most impressive scenery in 
Britain, down the backbone of 
Wales from Chester to Cardiff. 

The 205 has already done 
wonders for Peugeot Since it 
was launched three years ago 
over one and a quarter million 
have been- sold and the GTi 
version has become one of the 
cult vehicles of the I980& 
However chopping the top off 
has in the past produced some 
ugly ducklings from _ good 
looking parents. That is not 
the case with the new Peugeot. 
If anything it has even more 
attractive lines. That of course 
is why Peugeot went to 
Pininfarina to do the conver- 
sion. The two companies have 
been partners on successful 
open top models since the 
1950s. The Italian stylist also 
assembles, paints and finishes 
the body so he can control the 
final appearance. 

The first requirement of a 
good conversion is to retain 
the torsional strength of the 
original despite the loss of the 
roof, a key structural member 
of the modem chassis-less car. 
The floor pan of the standard 
205 has been considerably 
strengthened with new cross 
members added under the 
from seats and ahead of the 


fuel tank. The result is a very 
rigid car. There is no scuttle 
shake, no protesting noises 
from the body under extreme 
cornering pressure or at speed 
on rough roads. 

The fuel-injected 1580cc en- 
gine from the GTi has already 
won a host of admirers for its 
smooth, effortless power and 
allied to one of the sweetest 
five-speed gearboxes around it 
makes the open top an excit-. 
ing drive. 

But there is a price to be 
paid for all fresh air motoring 
and the new CTT is no 
exception. It costs £9,495 
compared with £7,360 for the 
fixed roof GTi. But it is still 
cheaper than its major com- 
petitors in Britain, the Ford 
XR3i Cabriolet at £9,817 and 
the VW Golf GTi Cabriolet at 
£10,512. 

Peugeot expect to sell 1 .000 
in the first full year. Their 
dealers have already snapped 
this year's allocation of 500. 
Ford, the Cabriolet leader, 
sold 4,450 last year. 

Citroen 

revival 

After years of failing to live 
up to the technical excellence 
of their cars Citroen sales in 
Britain are taking off. They 
have already sold 28 per cent 
more cars this year than in the 
same period last year and 
according to Bernard Peloux, 
managing director of Citroen 
UK, look like breaking even 
for the first time in six years. 
He predicts a market share of 
2 per cent in 1986 and the last 
time the French company 
reached that dizzy height was 
back in 1978. 

It all started to come right 
with the launch three years 
ago of the BX medium car — 
the first of its products de- 
signed wifi] ease of manufac- 
ture and low-cost 
maintenance as top priorities. 
It is now making quite an 
impact in the fleet business

Peugeot 205 CTt Exhilarating effortless power 



Citroen BX 19DTR: Diesel with a lack of fuss 


which had been dosed to 
Citroen because of its reputa- 
tion for produdng complex, 
difficult and expensive cars to 
maintain. 

The star of the BX range is 
the dieseL So far this year it is 
second only to Ford's Escort 
diesel and actually pipped it in 
a couple of months. There 
cannot be many model ranges 
sold in Britain where diesel 
versions account for nearly 
half the enure range but that is 
the measure of the BX’s 
popularity. 

It is available with two 
engine sizes, 1 769cc and 
1905cc. The larger engined 
model recently acquired ZFs 
four-speed automatic trans- 
mission, an option to the 
standard five-speed manual. 
The German “box” with a 
torque-convertor “lock-up” of 
top gear and a split hydro- 
mechanical drive for thud is 
fast becoming the most popu- 
lar automatic of the 1980s. It 
gives away little in perfor- 
mance or economy of the 
manual gearboxes and is ef- 
fortless in its changes. 

I recently drove a BX 19 
DTR automatic for a week. It 
is easily the most impressive 
diesel car to pass through my 
hands. Starting is almost in- 
stantaneous. By the time you 
had fitted your safety belt the 
fast acting glow plugs have 
reached their operating tem- 
peratures and off you go. 
There is the inevitable diesel 
clatter while you are station- 
ary but it is still markedly 
quieter than most of its rivals. 

On the road the diesel noise 
is not discernible, indeed 
knowledgeable passengers not 
only failed to spot that it was a 
diesel but expressed consider- 
able surprise even when alert- 
ed and listening intently. 

But it is not just the old 
diesel starting and noise prob- 
lems that have been immea- 
surably improved on the BX. 

Its performance is a revela- 


tion. It gets away from traffic 
lights quite smartly and 
changes up through the gears 
like a medium sized petrol car. 
And it does it all with such 
lack of fuss that it is relaxing 
and satisfying to drive. Gone 
are the frustrating compro- 
mises we came to accept as the 
penalty for the diesel’s more 
economical consumption. 


Vital statistics 

Model: Citroen BX19 DTR

Price: £9,180 

Engine: 1905cc four cyinder 


7mph 

Urban 


Performance: 0-62 mpft 16.2

Official consumption: 

43.5m pg, 56mph 56.5mpg, 
75mph 42.2rT?pg 
Length: 13.9 feet 
insurance: Group 4 


Not that that is missing 
either. I returned over 40mpg 
on two brisk cross-country 
runs against the clock. Driven 
more conservatively 45mpg 
would be within the compass 
of most drivers. Fuel saving is 
helped by the EX’S progres- 
sive “kick down”. It is not 
necessary to floor the accelera- 
tor to change down. Steadily 
increased pressure will do it 
for you and if the resulting 
change is not sufficient you 
can dip a further gear by 
m oving the foot faster. 

Caravan 

speeds 

Within the next few weeks 
the permitted maximum 
speeds of towed caravans will 
be raised from 50m ph to 
60mph on dual carriagways 
and motorways. It will remain 
at 50mph on other roads. The 
move has been welcomed by 
the Carvan Club because it 
removes an anomaly which 
restricted trailers including 
caravans to 50mph on motor- 
ways while everything else 
could do at least 60mph.

Law Report July 1 1 1986 


Mental element 
for murder 
jury to consider 


Regina v Nedrick 
Before Lord Lane, Lord Chief 
Justice, Mr Justice Lcggau and 
Mr Justice Kennedy 
(Judgment given July 10] 

Lord Lane. Lord Chief Jus- 
tice, gave guidance for directing 
a jury about intent in a murder 
case where the person charged 
did a manifestly dangerous act 
and someone died as a result. 

His Lordship said that, in the 
hope that it would be helpful to 
judges in such cases, an 
endeavour had been made to 
crystallize the effects of the 
House of Lords* speeches in R v 
\foloney ([1985] AC 905) and R 
v Hancock (The Times March 3; 
[1986] 2 WLR 357). 

His Lordship was giving the 
court’s reasons for having al- 
lowed on May 20 an appeal by 
Ransford Delroy Nedrick 
against conviction for murder at 
Stafford Crown Court (Mr Jus- 
tice Otton and a jury), for which 
he was sentenced to life 
imprisonment 

A verdict of manslaughter 
had been substituted under 
section 3 of the Criminal Appeal 
Act 1968 and a J 5-year sentence 
imposed. The jury had been 
discharged from returning ver- 
dicts on counts of arson with 
intent to endanger life and of 
arson being reckless as to life 
being endangered. 

Lord Hooson. QC and Mr 
David Guishard, assigned by 
the Registrar of Criminal Ap- 
peals. for the appellant; Mr J. S. 
Coward. QC and Mr Brian 
Leech for the Crown. 

THE LORD CHIEF JUS- 
TICE said that the Crown case 
was that the appellant, who had 
a grudge against a woman, 
without warning, poured par- 
affin through the letter-box and 
on to the front door of her house 
and set it alight. As a result the 
house was burnt down and one 
of her children died of 
asphyxaiion and burns. 

His defence was that be had 
neither started the fire nor made 
any admissions of having 
started iL 

The sole effective ground of 
appeal was that the judge had 
misdirected the jury on the 
intent necessary to establish a 
charge of murder. 

The direction was given be- 
fore publication of the speeches 
in Moloney and Hancock and in 
their light was plainly wrong. It 
was based on a passage in 
Archbold Criminal Pleading Ev- 
idence and Practice now 42nd ed 
(1985) paragraph 17-13, which 
equated foresight with intention 
and was expressly disapproved 
in Moloney. 

So far as concerned the men- 
tal element in murder, a jury 
had simply to decide whether 
the defendant intended to kill or 
do serious bodily harm. They 
had to pay regard to all the 
relevant circumstances, includ- 
ing what the defendant himself 
said and did. 

In the majority of cases a 
direction to that effect would be 
enough, particularly where the 
defendant's actions amounted 
to a direct attack on his victim, 
because in such cases the ev- 
idence relating to the 
defendant's desire or motive 
would be clear and his intent 
would have been the same as his 
desire or motive. 

In some cases, however, of 
which the present case was one, 
the defendant did an act which 
was manifestly dangerous and 
as a result someone died. 

The primary desire or motive 
of the defendant might not have 
been to harm that person, or 
indeed anyone. 

In that situation, what further 
directions should a jury be given 
as to the mental state which they 
had to find to exist in the 
defendant if murder was to be 
proved? 

Their Lordships had 
endeavoured to crystallize the 
effect of the speeches in 
Moloney and Hancock in a way 
which their Lordships hoped 
might be belpful to judges who 
had to handle such a type of 
case. 


It might be advisable fim of 
all to explain to the jury that a 
man might intend to achieve a 
certain result while at the same 
time not desiring it to come 
abouL 

In Moloney. Lord Bridge of 
Harwich bad given an illustra- 
tion of the distinction, when he 
said, at p92& 

“A man who, at London 
Airport, boards a plane which he 
knows to be bound for Man- 
chester. clearly intends to travel 
io Manchester, even though 
Manchester is the last place he 
wants to be and his motive for 
boarding the plane is simply to 
escape pursuit" 

The man who knowingly 
boarded the Manchester aircraft 
wanted to go there in the sense 
that boarding was a voluntary 
act. His desire to leave London 
predominated over bis desire 
not to go to Manchester. When 
he decided to board the aircraft, 
if not before, be formed the 
intention to travel to Manches- 
ter. 

In Hancock the House de- 
cided that the Moloney guide- 
lines required a reference to 
probability. Lord Scannan said, 
at p?64: 

"They also require an 
explanation that the greater the 
probability of a consequence the 
more likely it is that the 
consequence was foreseen and 
that if that consequence was 
foreseen the greater the 
probability is that that con- 
sequence was also intended.” 

When determining whether 
the defendant had the necessary 
.intent it might, therefore, be 
helpful for a jury to ask them- 
selves: 

1 How probable was the 
consequence which resulted 
from the defendant's voluntary 
act? 

2 Did he foresee that con- 
sequence? 

If he did not appreciate that 
death or really serious harm was 
likely to result from his acl, he 
could not have intended to bring 
it abouL 

If he did. but thought that the 
risk to which he was exposing 
the person killed was only slight, 
then it might be easy for the jury 
to conclude that he did not 
intend to bring about that result. 

On the other hand, if the jury 
were satisfied that at the ma- 
terial time the defendant rec- 
ognized that death or serious 
harm would be virtually certain 
— barring some unforeseen 
intervention — to result from his 
voluntary act, then that was a 
fim from which they might find 
it easy to infer that he intended 
to kill or do serious bodily harm, 
even though he might not have 
had any desire to achieve that 
result. 

As Lord Bridge had said in 
Molone r. at p925: 

**. . the probability of the 

consequence taken to have been 
foreseen must be Hde short of 
overwhelming before it will 
suffice to establish the necessary 
intent-” 

He used the expression 
“moral certainty” at p926 and 
said, at p929: “will lead to a 
certain consequence unless 
something unexpected super- 
venes to prevent it”. 

'Where the charge was murder 
and in the rare cases where the 
simple direction was not 
enough, the jury should be 
directed that they were not 
entitled to infer the necessary 
intention unless they felt sure 
that death or serious bodily 
harm was a virtual certainty — 
barring some unforeseen inter- 
vention — as a result of Ihe 
defendant's actions and that the 
defendant appreciated that such 
was the case. 

Where a man realized that it 
was for all practical purposes 
inevitable that his actions would 
result in death or serious haim. 
the inference might be irresist- 
ible that he intended that result, 
however little he might have 
desired or wished it to happen. 

The decision was one for lire 
jury to be reached on a consid- 
eration of all the evidence.

Broker is not liable 
for hire costs 


Ramwade Ltd v W. J. Emson 

& Co Ltd 

Before Lord Justice Parker. 
Lord Justice Nouise and Sir 
John Megaw 

(Judgment given June 27 J 

Where a insurance broker, 
negligently and in breach of 
contract, had failed to obtain 
comprehensive motor insurance 
for its client, and the client's 
lorry had subsequently been 
damaged beyond repair in a 
motor accident, the client was 
not entitled to recover from the 
broker damages in respect of the 
cost of hiring a tony until the 
broker made it possible for the 
client to purchase a new tony by 
paying it the market value of the 
damaged one. . . . 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in allowing an appeal by insur- 
ance brokers from an award of 
damages which included the 
cosl to their client of hiring a 
lorry until it had received funds 
from the brokers with which to 
purchase a new one. 

Mr Graeme Sampson for the 
brokers: Mr Gary Webber for 
the plaintiff. 

LORD JUSTICE PARKER 
said that the plaintiff would not 


have been entitled, under the 
policy which it had instructed 
the brokers to execute, to be 
reimbursed the cost of hiring the 
lorry. 

The plaintiff argued that, in 
view of the broken’ knowledge 
of its business and its inability to 
afford another lorry until it 
received damages for the loss of 
the first, tile need to hire a lorry 
(lowed foreseen bly from the 
brokers' breach: but that was not 
correci- 

The necessity to hire flowed 
either from the plaintiff’s 
impecuniosity. in which case it 
was irrecoverable (see The 
Uesbosch ([1933! A C 449». or 
from the brokers' _ failure 
promptly to pay the plaintiff the 
damages due for its breach. 

If it was the latter, the plaintiff 
was seeking to recover damages 
for non-payment of a debt, 
albeit at tire lime unquantified. 
The remedy for non-payment of 
a debt was interest on the sum 
due. not damages., and accord- 
ingly the plaintiff was not 
entitled to damages for the cost 
of hiring the lorry.

Driving a motor cycle 


McKoen v Ellis 

It was open to justices who 
had properly directed them- 
selves in law to conclude, as a 
matter of fact and degree, that a 
defendant wearing motor- 
cyclist’s clothing and crash hel- 
met. standing with legs astride a 
motor cycle, who hid. for an 
unspecified distance, been 
controlling the movement and 
direction of ihe motor cycle by 
pushing'and steering it while its 
ignition and lights were on 


without riding it was “driving” 
the motor cycle within the 
meaning of section 6(1) of the 
Road Traffic Act 1972. 

The Queen's Bench Di- 
visional Court (Lord Justice 
Woolf and Mr Justice Simon 
Brown) so held on June 26 when 
dismissing the defendant’s ap- 
. peal against his conviction for 
driving a motor cycle on a road 
having consumed so much al- 
cohol that the proportion of h in 
his blood exceeded the pre- 
scribed limit

Russian girls lead the advance for an attack on the world of tennis 



Miss Meski (left) and Miss Svereta flying the Russian flag at Wimbledon 


A glimpse of things to come 


The Russians have come, gone, and 
will doubtless be lack soon, in force. A 
recent decision by the Soviet authorities 
to bolster their tennis as part ofa drive to 
enhance their sporting prestige, has 
reaped an unexpected early harvest 

Almost unnoticed amid the hullaba- 
loo from the centre court last Sunday, 
the Wimbledon girls junior singles final 
on court two was, astonishingly, an all- 
Russian affair. The unseeded Miss 
Natasha Svereva, aged IS, conquered 
the unseeded Russian junior champion. 
Miss Leila Meski, aged 18, in a three- 
hour marathon (9-7 final setk they then 
teamed up to win a doubles semi-final 
and, exhausted, succumbed in the 
doubles final, 7-6, 7-5, to a fresher 
Australian pair. 

Both Russian girls can rally endlessly 
from the baseline: hardly surprising 
considering their childhood heroine was 
Chris Lloyd They each profess a dislike 
for Martina Navratilova, suitably in line 
with the official sentiment against those 
who defect Indeed they will surely have 
no such intent judging from a lengthy 
interview, conducted partly in Miss 
Svereva’s rudimentary English, which 
she is studying at school and partly 
through a shaky volunteer interpreter 
culled from the crowd 


British group Queen, and giggled as she 
expressed a desire to meet them when 
next she visits here. 

Tennis, they said is enjoying wide- 
spread popularity among their young 
friends. This, according to Philippe 
Pirapaneau, vice-president of the Ameri- 


can-based tennis agency ProServe, is no 
accident He said: u The Russians took a 


policy decision two or three years ago to 
play tennis abroad — to sharpen their 
world image through success in a range 
of sports.” 

His organization, launched by the 
American entrepreneur and former Da- 
vis Cup player, Donald Dell, forged an 
unlikely alliance with Russian tennis in 
March this year. 


A seven-year absence 
covered in camouflage 


Policy producing an 
unlikely alliance 


They said all the things good Russian 
girls should They play only for the 
honour of their country, not for them- 
selves. It has been “very difficult" to get 
used to the way things are in Britain, 
where they have played a few 
tournaments. 

They would certainly not concede that 
British shops were superior to those in 
their homeland though their team 
squad had had litlJe time for such 
pursuits as shopping. 

Were there any aspects oflife here that 
they enjoyed? "None,” said Miss 
Svereva Miss Meski, more diplomati- 
cally. said they had not considered the 
matter. Russian life, they agreed was 
better. Not that they rejected everything 
Western. Miss Svereva’s pop idols sure 
the Swedish group A- Her. while Miss 
Meski confessed to being a fan of the 


ProServe have been hired to promote 
Russian players and interest big spon- 
sors. who may wish to have them 
wearing their shoes or clothing and 
wielding their rackets. "It's a whole new 
world for their players and 
administrators,” Pimpaneau said 

Russian tennis has resurfaced — under 
the supervision of former Wimbledon 
ladies finalist Olga Morozova — after a 
seven-year self-imposed exile from the 
world circuiL The proffered explanatron, 
that they had no players worth sending 
abroad was largely camouflage, it is 
believed for a political decision at the 
time to withdraw in case tennis caused 
problems for the 1980 Moscow Olympic 
Games, by having their players take part 
against South Africans or Chileans. 
There was also some debate as to how to 
control ihe players’ exposure to big 
money and temptation. 

Now the priority is to enter a Russian 
team in the 1988 Olympics. Because 
professionals may be barred, the au- 
thorities have ordered their players not 
lo accept any prize-money this year — 
though some of them, according to 
Pimpaneau, did so at certain tourna- 
ments last year. 


technically breaches Olympic 

regulations. . . ■ • 

The rise of players like Miss Mesld 
and Miss Svereva has come about 
because of a steady expansion of the 
game, which, now that it has risen a few 
notches on the Russian priority charts, 
should rapidly accelerate. Stiff, h was 
only because Miss Svereva’s father was a 
professional tennis coach in the dty of 
Minsk, that she began playing at theage- 
of six. Her school provides swimming, 
but not tennis, lessons. 

Miss Meski first held a racket as a 10- 
year-okL and then mainly because her 
father was an acquaintance and a great 
admirer of fellow-Gebrgian, Alex 
Metreveli, the beaten Wimbledon final- 
ist in 1973 — the year most top players 
boycotted the event 

Contrary to practice with many young 
potential stars in the established sports 
like football gymnastics and athletics 
the two girls went to ordinary schools. 
Miss Meski is now studying French at 
university, and Miss Svereva spends five 
hours a day, except Sundays, practising 
before school or after it. 

Sometimes she is allowed off lessons, 
she said, though Miss Meski, mindful 
that missing classes is not official policy. 


Dreaming about a 
Wimbledon victory 


Miss Meski and Miss Svereva main- 
tain that the senior players all pass on 
their winnings to their tennis federation, 
which pays their expenses. Yet even that 


quickly corrected her. The girls dream of 
winning Wimbledon, but modestly sug- 
gest it will be far from easy to reach the 
standards of a Gabriela Sabatini, this 
year’s semi-finalist and just 1 5. 

It is hard to discern the sort of ruthless 
will-to-win that exudes from American, 
Czech, Swedish and (these days) West 
German youngsters. Nevertheless the 
authorities are determined that the 
Soviet Union quickly becomes a leading 
tennis nation. It has been somewhat 
galling for them to see a small neighbour 
make such an impression worldwide. 
“Tennis is now so popular that we hope 
soon to be as good as the Czechs,” Miss 
Svereva said. That is a statement of 
intent lhatcannot be taken lightly. The 
Russians, indeed, are coming.

RUGBY UNION 


Changing times greet 
new men at the top 


By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


Alan Grimsdell will become 
ihe 79th president of the Rugby 
Football Union at today's an- 
nual meeting in London, a 
presidential year which wifi be a 
watershed of the game in several 
distinct ways. Not only will his 
year of office conclude with the 
inaugural world tournament in 
New Zealand and Australia, but 
the game is adopting a new 
image at home. 

The situation may be encap- 
sulated in the transfer of the 
RFU secretaryship from Air 
Commodore Bob WeighilL after 
13 faithful years, to Dudley 
Wood, formerly Surrey’s repre- 
sentative on the RFU commit- 
tee. Mr Wood has spent a long 
career in marketing, an area of 
which the game in England is 
becoming increasingly aware. 

Air Commodore Weighill 
may. if he will forgive the 
expression, be regarded as a 
member of an old school whose 
qualities, many no longer re- 
garded as fashionable, become 
appreciated the closer one gets 
to them. It has been his pride 
and joy to see Twickenham 
functioning well on big match 
days and one can only wish him 
well in his acceptance of the 
honorary post of secretary of the 
International Rugby Football 
Board for whom restless days lie 
ahead. 


along with every other sport and 
cannot depend upon the schools 
churning out a ready made 
supply of players. John Fenna. 
aged 12, from Redruth, won 
himself a book and his school a 
ball by providing the following 
theme in the RFU competition 
at Wadebridgc:’’! like rugby 
because on the field it is highly 
competitive, off the field it’s 
companionship.” 

Master Penna has pm his 
finger on it competitive, both in 
the way rugby is played and 
presented, the more so perhaps 
because of the limits to com- 
petition upon which so many 
schools seem to insist these 


days. 


Rugby’s new image is not 
confined only to the new club 
structure which will be pre- 
sented today. There is. indeed, a 
version of the game called ”ncw 
image" introduced from New 
Zealand which promotes rugby 
as a game for the family while, 
for the first lime, the RFU took 
a stand at ihe Royal Cornwall 
show at Wadebridge last month 
to attract potential customers. 

The authorities in this coun- 
try now appreciate what their 
Australian counterparts have 
been telling them for some lime, 
that rugby is in the market place 


It is. therefore, a skittish 
stallion which Mr Grimsdell. 
aged 62. will ride for the next 
year. The son of Arthur 
GrimsdelL who played football 
for Tottenham Hotspur and 
England, the new president was 
educated at Watford GS and 
Berkhamsied before serving in 
the RAF. He played at lock 
forward for Harlequins between 
1 945 and 1958 and subsequently 
for High Wycombe. 

He won representative hon- 
ours for Middlesex and an 
England trial in 1951 but he will 
always be associated with the 
match in that year against the 
otherwise unbeaten South Af- 
ricans. He kicked a conversion 
and. >n the second half, the 
derisive penalty goal which gave 
London Counties their 11-9 


win. 


Mr Grimsdell represented 
Buckinghamshire on the RFU 
committee for 14 years and was 
assistant treasurer to the union 
for six years before becoming 
treasurer between 1981 and. 
1 984. His senior vice-president 
will be John Burgess, from 
Lancashire, and John Simpson 
(Leicestershire) becomes junior 
vice-presidcnL 


ROWING 


Testing time ahead for 
Britain’s top crews 


By Jim Railton 


More than 20 British crews 
arc entered for the Lucerne 
Rotsee regatta, which starts 
today, in what will be their last 
chance to impress before the 
Great Britain selectors choose 
their team for the forthcoming 
world championships. 

The regatta takes on a dif- 
ferent format this year with the 
introduction of 500-metrc 
sprints for senior men, women 
and lightweights. The sprints are 
designed to make rowing more 
exciting for spectators and, in 
particular, to attract television 
coverage. Bui the real interest in 
Lucerne will be the outcome of 
the 2.000m races — the world 
championship and Olympic 
distance. 

Rotsee can, in fact, be more 
difficult to compete in than the 
world championship, particu- 
larly if the East Germans and 
the Soviet Union enter more 
than one crew in an event. But 
overall Great Britain have a 
very strong team, as is reflected 
in results in Europe so far this 
year. Altogether 28 countries 
have entered for Lucerne 
including East Germany, the 
Soviet Union. Australia. New 
Zealand. Italy, Bulgaria and the 
United States. 

Among Britain's front-run- 
ners are Andy Holmes and Steve 
Redgrave. Olympic gold medal 
winners in the coxed fours, who, 
last Sunday won the Silver 
Goblets title with ease at Hen- 
Icy. This weekend they take 
Adrian Ellison on board as 
coxswain, and must be con- 
fident of success having earlier 
this season beaten Italy's 
Abbagnale brothers, the Olym- 
pic and world champions, who 
are also competing at Lucerne. 

In last year's world 
championships another British 
pair. Martin Cross and Adam 
Clift, came within eight-hun- 
dredths of a second of defeating 
ihe Soviet Union's Yuri and 
Nikolai Pimenov and taking the 


gold medaL Cross and Clift's 
fortunes at Lucerne will be 
closely observed, but by all 
accounts, the Russians have not 
entered this event. 

The British men's heavy- 
weight right, winners of the 
Grand Challenge Cup at Henley 
for their eighth successive vic- 
tory of the season, will be facing, 
as will others, the first real test of 
the season. Nine crews have 
entered for the rights in Lucerne 
and the field includes the East 
Germans, the second Russian 
eight. Italy, West Germany, 
Australia and France. 

Another crew to watch wfll be 
London University's Tyrian, 
who pushed Ridley, of Canada, 
to a new course record hi the 
Stewards' Challenge Cup at 
Henley. So. Great Britain’s 
men's heavyweights have a fair 
share of talent between them., 
but the next few day's wfll truly 
lest their mettle. 

Britain’s women's heavy- 
weights will not only meet 
exceptional opposition, but will 
also be drawing on their re- 
serves. The women's eight aim 
to double up in the coxed fours 
and coxless pairs, which is 
ambitious in light of the time- 
table. Tbe lightweight women's 
team is in optimistic mood with 
Beryl Cmckford. the world dou- 
ble sculjs lightweight champion, 
competing in the singles, her 
former partner. Lin Clark, now 
in a fast looking coxless four and 
the double scuDs partnership of 
GiU Bond and Carrie- Ann 
Wood showing promise. 

The scene, too. is sex for 
another classic duel in the single 
sculls between Pcrtti 
Karppinen. of Finland, the three 
times Olympic gold medal win- 
ner and Pctcr-Michael Kolbe. 
the former world champion 
from West Germany. Britain's 
Redgrave is not contesting the 
single sculls at Lucerne, but 
.sensibly concentrates his' mind 
on the coxed pairs., .

FOOTBALL 


Chance of 


progress 
for Scots 


in Europe 


, ByHi^h Taylor 

The managers' of Scottish 
clubs who are taking part in 
European competition heavied 
sighs of relief when they heard 
the results of yesteiday’s draws. 

Realising how much football 
requires a fillip .. this, . season . 
following yet another of. the 
country's sad early exits from 
the World. Cup finals, they, were 
delighted to find that, apart 
from Heart of Midlothian, who 
meet the doughty Dukia Prague 
in the UEFA Ctfo, thrirtlubs 
have . been given excellent 
chances of making progress jn 
the various competitions, hav- 
ing had the good fortune to 
escape powerful rivals. 

“This was just the draw we 
wanted.” said David Hay, the 
manager of Critic. The-Scottish . 
champions, play Shamrock 
Rovers of Dublin, a dub in- 
cidentally they will meet later, 
this month in a pre-season 
friendly. 

It is the first time in four years - 
that Celtic whose astonishing 
late ran earned them the League 
title, have bora involved m the 
champions tournament They 
have had litlie success ia Earope 
recently and so they missed out . 
on one of the seven seeded 
places in the tournament. . 

Aberdeen, who were seeded in 
Ihe Cup WinDers 1 Cup.' were: 
even happier than Celtic when 
they found they bad been d rawn 
to meet Sion. The last time they 
met the. Swiss dub.it was-in the • 
preliminary round of the . same 
competition in 1983 and they 
went on to take the trophy after 
winning 11-1 on aggregate. 

In the-UEFA Cup. the vastly' 
experienced ' Dundee , : United - 
should have few fears against 
Lens and'Rangers can hardly be 
expected .to. stumble against 
Tampere; who finished fourth in, 
the. Finnish League last season, 
although such is .the enthusiasm 
of manager Graeme Souness as 
he -rebuilds the side.- that the 
supporters would probably have 
been happier if their first round 
opponents had turned out to be 
a club of tbe magnitude of 
Barcelona or Atfetico Madrid or 
indeed Bordeaux. 

The French Cup' winners 
provide the daunting opposition 
for Waterford. 

Wrexham, the Welsh cup 
winners, should make the sec- 
ond round, as their first oppo- 
nents are Zurrieq from Malta.

By Michael Seely 

Upholding the value of this 
season’s classic form in no 
uncertain manner,; Green 
Desert outclassed his five 
opponents in the Norcros July 
Cup at Newmarket yesterday. 
Stepping up the gallop two 
furlongs from home, the 2,000 
Guineas runner-up followed 
in the footsteps of Aberrant 
and Chief Singer, the only 
other horses in the post-war 
era to have finished second in 
the first of the colts' classics 
before -capturing this historic 
trophy. 

This victory continued the 
incredible run of success being 
enjoyed by Michael Stoute 
and Walter Swinburn, who 
have now won the principal 
races on all three days of the 
meeting. Their next strike for 
gold will be at rite Curragh 
tomorrow when Untold is an 
odds-on favourite to win the 
Gilltown Stud Irish Oaks. 

Swinbura produced a fine 
tactical riding performance on 
the 7-4 favourite by going to 
the front from Grey Desire 
after two furlongs as the pace 
did not appear to be particu- 
larly strong. 

Both Gwydion and Cyrano 
De Bergerac tried hard to get 
to grips soon after half-way 
but could make no impres- 
sion. Green Desert eventually 
beat Grey Desire by three 
quarters of a length with 
Gwydion the same distance 
away third. 

Yves Saint-Martin certainly 
made an error of judgment by 
lying too far out of his ground 
on Last Tycoon, who finished 
fast to take fourth place. 
However, no matter what 
tactics the 15- times champion 
French jockey had employed, 
the pair would not have 
beaten the easy winner. 

“This is a very fast horse 
indeed," Stoute -said, with a 
triumphant gleam in his eyes. 
“If the owners agree 1 want to 
bring him back to five furlongs 
and go for the William Hill 
Sprint Championship at 
York." 

After finishing second to 
Dancing Brave in our own 
2.000 Guineas, Green Desert 
was sent to the Curragh where 
he finished unplaced behind 
Flash Of Steel in the Irish 
equivalent in heavy going. 
The colt then went to Ascot 
where he was runner-up to 
Sure Blade in the St James's 
Palace Stakes. 

“I was longing to pull him 
back to sprinting after 
Newmarket,” Stoute contin- 
ued “I was praying that 
Harwood would send Dancing 
Brave to Ireland, but when he 
didn't go. Green Desert just 



play into hands 
of Imperial Jade 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

Dublin Lad, Philip, Ring, he seems unlikely to see 
out a mile and a half as well as 


ClanSme and Roderfieki Grew 
all standing their ground, 
today’s Iinpac Handicap ai 
York is guaranteed to be a 
sizzling sprint from the word go- 

These four really only have 
one way of racing and that is to 
«, fiat out from the start, 
especially Dublin Lad who 
made all the running to win the 
Gosforth Park Clip ^Newcastle 

last month by a length and a ban 
from Clantime. 

All this leads me to think that, 
in this instance, they amid cut 
one another*’ throats and sira- 
olv olav into the hands of Pat 

Eddery on Imperial jade. 

At Epsom, on Derby Day. 
Imperial Jade onlyjusi failed to 
cau* Clantime whom she will 
be meeting on 51b better terms 
this afternoon. Two days later 
Imperial Jade showed what a 
redoubtable competitor she is 
by raving Hilton Brown 21b and 
a tfaee-tength beating over six 
furlongs. 

So she is likely to be running 
on today when others have had 
enough. And the word from 


Five Farthings, whose pedigree 
is packed with stamina. 

The only lime that Chime 

Time has been beaten was when 

he was runner-up to Minstrdla 
in the Chesham Stakes at Royal 
Ascot. So with Minstrel la mak- 
ing Forest Flower pull out all the 
stops in the Cherry Hmton 
Stakes at Newmarket on Tues- 
day. Chime Time looks, poised 
to regain the winning trail in the 
Black Duck Stakes at the ex- 
pense of Glow Again. 

At Chester this evening I am 
looking to Gay’s Flutter and 
Battleaxe to also uphold Royal 
Ascot form by winning the Alice 
Hawthorn Maiden' FUGes Stakes 
and the Cardinal Puff Stakes 

TBS**— * war 

creditable fifth in the Queen 
Mary Stakes. Gay’s Flatter 
(6.55) should be good enough to 
beat Ultra Nova, who finished 
third at Windsor first time out. 

Battleaxe (8.20) has already 
proved that his fourth place in 
the Windsor Castle States was 


Roystoo. where she is trained by no fluke by winning at Notting- 
Alan Jarvis, is that Imperial ham in the meantime Mid now l 
Jade is in sparkling form and 
fancied to win. In the circum-

king of Epsom gambling train- 
ers, has now placed Andy 


had to take his chance. And 
then we had to give him one 
more go over a mile at Ascot 
on fast going.** 

Green Desert belongs to 
Makloum AI Maktoum and 
earlier in the afternoon we had 
beard the sad news that his 
brother. Sheikh Mohammed's 
brilliant filly. Pebbles, has 
finished her racing career and 
will now be retired to stud. 

“It's a cartilage in her 
shoulder, “ Robert Acton, gen- 
eral manager of the Sheikh's 
breeding interests, said. 
“Give Brittain has advised us 
that there is no point in 
persevering any further. We 
are sending her to Kentucky to 
be mated with a proven 
Northern Dancer stallion such 
as Danzig or Lyphard. She'll 
then be brought back to foal in 
this country and then we 
might send her to Shareef 
Dancer." Acton also said that 


Oh So Sharp is in foal to 
Dunbeath and will visit 
Shareef Dancer in 1987. 

After Barry Hills had given 
Sheikh Mohammed an earlier 
success by winning the H & K. 
Commissions Silver Jubilee 
Stakes with the improving 
three-year-old stayer, Zaubair, 
the Lam bo urn trainer said 
that Sure Blade would not 
now be trained for the Match- 
maker International Stakes. 

“Sure Blade is still not 
moving right," Hills said. “We 
plan go give him at least a 
month's rest and turn him out 
at the Rutland Stud. We want 
to try and bring tbe horse back 
for an autumn campaign in- 
cluding the Champion Stakes, 
but if not he’ll stay in training 
as a four-year okL" 

That normally fiercely com- 
petitive handicap; the Addi- 
son Tools Stakes, was turned 
into a procession when Mi- 


Newnes rides a double 


BQly Newnes rode his first 
winner since returning from a 
2%-yemr riding ban when be 
partnered My Baddy to victory 
in tbe Maple Leaf Maiden 
Auction Stakes at Catterick 
yesterday. 

Newnes, who came back to a 
tnmaltaoBS reception from the 
crowd, said: .“That is my six- 

-■ ^1. mmuhar* 


the first is always the hardest, 
bat this is great." Half an bom- 
later, Newnes completed a doa- 
ble on the Henry Candy-trained 
Great Exception in tbe Weeping 
Willow Stakes. 

The coarse executive marked 
Newnes's achievement by 
presenting hint with two bottles 
of champagne to share with his 

Miahina mnm mllfHPUeX- 


Smith’s three-year-old to win 
five races in succession. 

“Aventino is in a race at 
Sandown in about 10 days' 
time where he is 21b better 
treated than today," Sutcliffe 
said. “After that we'll proba- 
bly have to sell him. It's a 
marvellous life and easy to 
train when you've got good 
horses. They do it all for you." 

Willie Carson bad his only 
winner of the afternoon when 
riding Mummy’s Favourite to 
a three-length victory over 
Royal Loft in the Bahrain 
Trophy. “She’s now got a 51b 
penalty for the Stewards’ Cup, 
but I haven't decided yet 
whether to run her," John 
Dunlop, the winning trainer, 
said. 

Ben Hanbury had news of 
Midway Lady, the winner of 
the 1,000 Guineas and Oaks. 
“The filly was jarred up after 
Epsom," the trainer said. 
“We’re going to start her 
cantering again on July 29. If 
we get some rain she'll be 
prepared for tbe Yorkshire 
Oaks. Otherwise it will be an 
autumn campaign including 
the Prix Vermeille and Prix de 
1'Arc de Triomphe.’’ 


Research 
fund 

launched 

A £5 million research fond 
has been set np to help combat 
the growing problem of viruses 
in raring stables and studs. 
Details of the fund were an- 
nounced at Newmarket yes- 
terday by Lord Porchester, tbe 
fhainmn of the trustees of tbe 
Equine Virology Research 
Foundation. 

“In recent years the Mood- 
stock industry in tbe United 
Kingdom has experienced sev- 
eral serions outbreaks of disease 
initiated by viruses," Lord 
Porchester said. “Respiratory 
problems in some of onr leading 
stables have disrupted t rain i n g 
and many of tbe 
best horses have missed pres- 
tigious races whilst others have 
nm below their true form, to the 
frustration of the betting public. 
The incidence of virus abortions 
on stnds is also very worrying. 

The new research programme 
will concentrate on equine 
herpesvirus (EHV-1) which 
canses respiratory disease m 
horses in training, abortion in 
mares, and paralysis. The fund 
will enable veterinary scientists 
to mate nse of molecular biology 
f»wit genetic manipulation as 
they try to develop vaccines 
which are effective against 
EHV-1. 


stances she looks a worthy nap. 

Eddery can sustain his 
tremendous challenge for this 
years jockeys’ championship fry 
winning the Pttihp Comes 
Nickel Alloys Maiden Stokes on 
El Zeta, who finished only 
seven lengths behind Who 
Knows on his debut at Salisbury 
last month. , . , 

In the meantime the form ot 
that race has been upheld by 
both Who Knows, wbo finished 
second in the July States on 
Wednesday, and Don t Forget 
Me. who won a hotly-contested 
race at Sandown last Saturday. 
The danger this afternoon is 
likely to come from Rich Char- 
lie, who was deemed good 
enough to make his racecourse 
debut in the Coventry Stakes at 
Royal Ascot of all races. 

Otherwise at York it should 
pay to follow Michael Stoute 


feel that he may well be up to 
beating the disappointing Bois 
De Boulogne. 

Sweet Mover, a beautifixUy- 
bred filly by Nijinsky, did 
enough in her two races as a 
two-year-old at Goodwood and 
Newbury to suggest that she 
ought to be capable of beating 
the likes of Sherzad and Nordic 
Pleasure in the Henry Gee 
Maiden Stakes. 

Finally, Bushido stands out as 
a good bet to beat Glint Of 
Gold’s brother. Emerald Point, 
in the Infants Maiden Stakes at 
Lingfield following that eye- 
catching performance at Salis- 
bury in the spring when he an 
but beat Henry Candy’s Oaks 
runner. Broken Wave.

B^SrikranarSen 
Boxing Correspondent 

If Tim Witherspoon was con- 
fident of beating Frank Bruno, 
he came away doubly certain 
that he would return home to 
the United States with his 
World Boxing Association 
heavyweight title, after his 
“controntaiion" with the chal- 
lenger for publicity’s sake 
yesterday. 

“There were certain things * 
aw that told me a lot about 
Bruno." Witherspoon aid after 

the meeting, which was hdd at a 

hotel midway between 
Witherspoon's camp at Basil- 
don and the home of Bruno s 
manager. Terry Lawless, at 
Hornchurch, wfrere . Bruno is 
Staying while be trains for his 
challenge at Wembley Stadium 
on July 19. 

“Man, you don't want to take 
seriously all those things 1 said 
about making Bruno pay be- 
cause he said 1 was Hash. 1 was 
pushing him to see what his 
mental condition is like. I found 
he was nervous," Witherspoon 
said. “Check this out. He made 

eye contact but when I pressured 

him be looted away. 

“London is his home town and 
he did not have anything to say. 
He was merely capitalizing on 
what I was saying. He was not 
leading. I reckon that's bow be is 
going to fight. He said some- 
thing like *You had better be 
there when the bell rings and 
keep the belt polished*. That is 
what James Broad said, or 
something like it, and 1 knocked 
him out in the second rountv . 

Witherspoon was relaxed at 
the press conference wide 
Bruno was a little introspective. 
The champion unleased a senes 
of combinations but he did not 
have it all his own way. Bruno 
boxed clever and caught 
Witherspoon with a good few 
sneaky ones: “I hope 1 won't 
have to fight all those people 
you have brought , with you ; 
and when Witherspoon said that 
he runs six miles a day Bruno 

countered with “I do that on my 

day off"; and “He’s a good 
champion but as Larry Holmes 
said his attitude stinks and his 
lifestyle stinks". 

Clearly this was a reference to 
the marijuana episode that al- 
most cost Witherspoon his title 
and implied that the champion s 
dedication is not all it should be. 

That hurt Witherspoon. “1 
said what I am going to do on 
the night- Bruno did not say 
what he was going to do, that 
shows he does not know. He just 
reads magazines about wbai 
Holmes says about me and 
Holmes isn’t going to say any- 
thing about me after I whupped 
his butt. When I finish training 
I'm going to lode myself up in 
my room and stare at Bruno's 
picture on the wall and get 
myself ready to whup him as I 
whupped Hol mes."

A handout from the Royal 
Society for die Protection of 
Birds complains that anglers are 
doing very little to stop swans 
dying from lead poisoning. The 
society says that a recalculation 
of the evidence showed that 
something of die order of 3370 
to 4,190 swans die in England 
every year from ingesting fishing 
weights. 

The evidence is provided in a 
detailed report from Dr 
CJM .Perrins to the Nature 
Conservancy Council which 
summed ap the post-mortem and 
other evidence in surveys made 
by the Department of Agri- 
culture nwd Fisheries and other 
bodies over a period of years. 

However yon jnggle with 
statistics, and you can juggle a 
lot, the evidence is conclnsive- 
Many thousands of swans have 
died and are dying from eating 
lead shot ased by coarse fisher- 
men as weights for float fishing 
and ledgers. Here are a few of 
the many points made by Dr 
Perrins in his report: 

On the Thames to the Ihst 
week of the coarse fishi ng 
season in 1984, eight cygnets 
had to be taken from the r iver m 
tbe first week alone, on e with a 
hook in its c«sopliagE3 s C€SK^E£fi| 
the other seve n ^ wi th fishing 
weights in their gizzard. 

In the Richmond area of foe 
Thames, very popular with 
coarse fishermen, a pound and a 
half of lead shot was recovered 
from a search area of 120 square 
metres (some 366 sqmre feet). 

Most weights fond had teen 
used-Tbey were rither attached 
to nylon, broken in half, or had 
the split dosed. A very few 
ledger and airgoo pellets were 
found and no gnnsbet pellets. 

It is not only weigh** to- 
carded over many years which 
caase the problem. Take one 
example within two months of a 
pond near Coalville, Leicester- 
shire, being opened for fishing 
for Che first time, a swan which 
died from lead poisoning had 
eight split shot in its gizzard. 

In some popahr coarse fish- 
ing areas, more birds are dying 
i from lead poisoning than from 
all other caases of death added

That is some of the evidence. 
There is Rime, or very little,

Presamably fewer swans and 
more fly fishmg. It is the coarse

THE TIMES FRIDAY JULY 11 1986 


ATHLETICS 


How saving pace can 
reverse the losing 
trend for Miss Budd 


By Pat Botcher, Athletics Correspondent 

After some of the thin fields Mrs Puica could do dial job like 
at the Goodwill Games in themselves, since they will bod 
Moscow, camouflaged by doubtless have a pacemaker to Imc 
Joyner and Bubka's world help them. Miss Budd should j, 


Joyner and Bubka's world 
records, Johnson’s 9.95 sec 
100 metres and Donkova's 
12.40 sec hurdles, the PeugBot 
Talbot Games at Crystal Pal- 
ace this evening, the eighth 
Mobil grand prix meeting of 
the season, looks like an 
orchestra following a suing 
quartet 

It is not simply the 13 
Olympic champions (at the 
latest count), nor the accom- 
paniment of other Olympic 
medal winnert and world class 
athletes in the different fields, 
but primarily the top class 
contests in several events. 

Like Zola Budd v Maricica 
Puica in the women's 2,000 
metres. There is no sign that 


then pate herself the way 
Mary Slaney does. No, not by 
filing down, but by saving 
enough to increase the pace 
throughout the last lap to duB 
Mrs Puica's superior sprint. 

On the political front, Keith 
Connor, the retired Common- 
wealth and European triple 
jump champion, who is help- 
ing- to organize the' meeting, 
maintains that he has had a 
favourable reaction from sev- 
eral of the Mack members of 
England's Commonwealth 
Games team for making some 
sort of demonstration against 
Miss Budd’s inclusion in the 
team for Edinburgh. 

But that will be too late for 


Johnny Gray was also on 
the plane, and he was discon- > 


solate. Although he had won 
the 800m in Moscow, he could 
not believe bow badly he felt. 
He beat Sebastian Coe in 
Stockholm last week in the 
year’s fiistest time, but he said: 
“If I feel the same against Coe 
at Crystal Palace as I did in 
Moscow, then he should have 
no trouble in getting his 
revenge." It will not be as easy 
as that, of course, for Coe, but 
he must start at an advantage, 
with a sell-out crowd of almost 
20,000 behind him. 


The women’s 400 metres 
should be the best ever run in 
Britain. Valerie Brisco-Hooks, 


once and just over it twice for 
1,500 metres this season. She 
has beaten Miss Budd, almost 
16 years her junior, on all five 
of their meetings, beginning 
with that infamous Olympic 
3,000 metres final, which Mrs 
Puica won. 

But the youngster is gradu- 
ally improving, and should 
soon start to reverse that 
losing trend. The world record 
of 5 min 28.72 sec by the 
discredited (for drug taking) 
Tatyana Kazankina should be 
expunged from the lists, and 
the International Amateur 
Athletics Association should 
also take the moral responsi- 
bility for banning dope takers 
for life. 

But, as far as the record is 
concerned. Miss Budd and 


the Commonwealth Games 
over lack of British sanctions 
against South Africa, but also, 
it is believed, over Miss 
Budd's selection. On the plane 
from Moscow yesterday, 
Imoh was more disbelieving 
than disconsolate. *Tve just 
run my best-ever time (10.04 
behind Johnson, but in front 


fastest in the world this year 
and unbeaten at any distance. 
Other top Americans, 
Chandra Cheeseborough and 
Diane Dixon, also compete 
against Commonwealth 
favourite, Grace Jackson. But 
Debbie Flintofl; who ran the 
fifth fastest intermediate hur- 
dles last week, could surprise 


ocuiuu juuuat/u, _, • 

of Carl Lewis, 10.06). I’ve focm alL 

gauged my whole season to Steve Cram has given up 


peak for the Commonwealth 
Games, and this happens.” 

Imoh is down to run the 
100m, but he said he would 
prefer to race at 200m against 
Lewis, who maintained again 
in Moscow; *Tve always said 
that this was going to be a 
relatively low-key season for 
me. Pm not too bothered by 


chasing Coe to compete in the 
1,000m, where he should be 
untroubled, as should Evelyn 
Ashford in the 200m. and 
Sergei Litvinov's coach main- 
tained that he wiO break the 
hammer world record soon. 
He does not have the current 
holder, Yuri Sedykh, to test 
him tonight, but, after his 


the defeat by Johnson.” And tf recent results, that record 
they meet « p»n tonight, it is must be a possibility. 


Skeete in a class by herself 


By Cliff Temple 


Lesley- Ann Skeete. a pupil at 
Millfiefd School Somerset, and 
a member of the England team 
for the Commonwealth Games, 
defends her 100 metres hurdles 


title in the English Schools Milk 
track and field championships 
which begin at the Mountbatten 
Centre, Portsmouth, this 
morning. 

There are those who would 
say that the schools event, with 
its 2.000 competitors, packed 
stands, tight-knit programme 
and emotional atmosphere, is 
the more intimidating of the two 
major events that Miss Skeete is 
tackling this month. Already 
this season she has finished 
runner-up in the United King- 
dom and Women's AAA 
championships, performances 
which helped to keep the 
Commonwealth champion. 


Shirley Strong, out of England’s 
team. 

Miss Skeete. whose prelimi- 
nary heats are the first in today's 
seven hours and a half of 
competition (and whose final is 
one of the last of tomorrow's 
similarly packed timetable), 
may do the programme printers 
a favour by bettering the 
championship record of 13.7sec 
which she shares with five other 
girls, dating back from 1 974. She 
has a wind-assisted 1 3.24sec and 
a legal 13^0sec to her credit this 
year.

talent but bias been 'over-

By Michael Coleman 

Dominic Mahony, one of the 
few Britons at the Goodwill 
Games in Moscow, performed 
admirably to take tenth [dace in 
the modem pentathlon. In a 
contest of a higher quality than 
at the world championships or 
Olympic Games (there was no 
restriction on the number of 
competitors from the Soviet 
Union, where modem pentaih- 
letes are as prolific as ice hockey 
players), second lieutenant 
Mahony turned in a fine perfor- 
mance to record a high total of 
5,297 points. 

An indication of the quality of 
Russian competitors is seen by 
the fact that Anatoly Slarosti n, 
Olympic champion of 1980, 
world champion in 1984, and 
winner of the recent Bir- 
mingham international, could 
only manage fifth place

the most crucial matches of the 
tournament. Southfield bad 
gone into the fixture with 
Cowdray Park leading League 1 
with two victories but it was 
their opponents, one of four 
teams trailing with only one 
win, who emerged triumphant 
by a resounding 1 1 goals to 6. • 

Notwithstanding the loss of 
Novacs and Pearson. Cowdray 
have now developed into as 
powerfula combination as for a 
long time. Samuel Moreno, who 
flew in from Chile three weeks 
ago to replace Novaes. has been 
going from strength to strength. 
Marlin Glue, who has been 
slotted into their number three 
position, is now patently under 
handicapped, and so is Gren-

deploy at one. 

It was sad to see the former

Worcester). 

Ttes to be phry&d on mormder, Ju& 30. 


Portent of victory: Yorkshire’s Stdebottom sends the bails flying and Radley walking 


bowlers making no inroads, the 
increasingly perplexed Bairstow 
turned to Camck to bowl tbe 
54th over. 

Earlier in the morning Carrick 
had proved expensive, and it 
looked the last desperate throw 
of the dice. It proved to be a 
master stroke as Carrick, who 
has been out of form and much 
criticized of late, came up 
trumps, claiming three wickets 
for four in nine balls, beginning 
with a double-wicket maiden. 

His second delivery beat 
Down ton through tbe air. draw- 
ing him fatally forward to be 


stranded by ayard as he checked 
his drive. His fifth .persuaded 
Edmonds, who ought to rec- 
ognize tbe wiles of his counter- 
part. into a misjudged half 
drive, Garrick taking a straight- 
forward return catch. • 

Suddenly the possibilities 
were exciting, and ■ with tbe 
tension mounting, Shaw played 
his part excellently, restricting 
Middlesex to two runs before 
Carrick struck again. Four runs 
came off his first three deliv- 
eries, but the fourth ended 
Hughes's, stay as another un- 
convincing drive was brilliantly 
snapped up by the diving 
Moxon at short mid-on. 

The odds were now firmly in 
Yorkshire’s favour, and the 


swing became even more pro- 
nounced as Emburey, the last 
real obstacle to their triumph, 
fell to the first ball of tbe 57th 
over, Shaw beating his at- 
tempted drive to knock back the 
middle stump. Eight balls later it 
was all over. Cowans's flailing 
bat foiling to make contact with 
a straight ball from Jarvis to put 
Yorkshire home with IS balls to 
spare. 

Middlesex had snatched de- 
feat from tbe jaws of victory, for 
such an outcome, by no means 
inconceivable in tbe gloom of 
the previous evening, bad 
seemed highly unlikely in -the 
sunshine' of the first hour as 
Downton and Radley made 
untroubled progress. 


. Twenty-five runs came off the 
first five overs, only a skier to 
long-on, which Fletcher lost 
against the dark background, 
giving any .bint of a break- 
through as Bairstow permed his

Leicestershire quick to finish the task 


By Marcas Williams 


BRISTOL Leicestershire beat 
Gloucestershire by six wickets 
Leicestershire took just over 
40 minutes to score the 52 runs 
they required to defeat 
Gloucestershire yesterday with 
3.5 overs to spare and earn a 
home maid) in the NatWest 
Trophy quarter-finals against 
Lancashire, conquerors of tbe 
other West Country repre- 
sentatives. Somerset. 
Balderstone was given the man 
of the match award by Roy 
Marshall for an accomplished 
innings of 66 that ensured 
victory was achieved comfort- 
ably after Gloucestershire’s dis- 


ably after Gloucesterahire's dis- 
appointing batting. 

Wednesday’s crowd of some 


3,000, who were deprived of 
seeing tbe finish when Willey 
and Potter accepted tbe 
umpires’ offer of bad light, had 
dwindled to a handful yes- 
terday. Leicestershire bad a 
maximum of 16 overs to com- 
plete their modest task- with 
seven wickets in hand and 
Gloucestershire’s plight was 
exacerbated by the injury to 
Lawrence, who had bowled only 
eight of his 12 overs. 

Graveney therefore turned to 
the-occasional medium pace of 
Tomlins for the opening over 
and when that yielded 1 1 runs, 
any lingering doubt about the 
outcome disappeared. Although 
Walsh beat both batsmen, his 


two remaining overs were - seen 
off; Graveney himself was a 
model of economy bat even 
after Plotter had been caught at 
mid-wicket in the 53rd over. 
Boon and the dependable WiDey 
plundered the winning runs off 
Athey.

Indians made to work Hadlee named Gray in dominant mood 


NUNHOLM:The Indians beat 
Scotland bv three wickets. 

Tbe Indians had seven overs 
and one ball to spare as they 
won the first of two one-day 
matches at Nunholm as part of 
the 800th anniversary celebra- 
tions of the town of Dumfries. 
The Indians did not have mat- 
ters all their own way, however, 
as they found the Scottish 
bowling reasonably tight. A 
missed catch and a mistake in 
the field which could easily have 
led to a run-out. might have 
made the final issue much 
closer. 

Scotland, having won the 
toss, decided to bat and with 
some hard-hitting from Burnett 


150 for five and they lost two 
wickets after tea before Shastri 
hit the winning four.

LAKENHAM: The New Zea- 
landers. with two first innings 
wickets standing, lead the Minor 
Counties by 125 runs. 

New Zealand utilized the 
chance for some batting practice 
to pass the Minor Counties total 
for the loss of three wickets on 
tbe. way to reaching 334 ■ for 
eight. It was a pleasant day, with 
the highlight being a fine cen- 
tury’ by Gray. 

Wright, their acting captain in 
the absence ofthe resting Coney, 
Jeff Crowe and Gray were the 
major contributors. Crowe, at 
27, the elder of the two brothers, 
found time and room off the 
back foot to step up the pace 


But Gray, scaring mainly on the 
leg side, went on to reach bis 
century In 168 minutes before 
giving Surridge some deserved 
reward by chopping on to his 
stumps for 108. He hit 18 fours 

and one six.

against Gfoucestershire, in an-

home match against Lancashire. 
Worcestershire entertain their

Provided the Sussex fist

Yorkshire could have quite a 
struggle against a team finding 
new zest under Gould’s leader-

in 1963. when 65-over matches 
were played, beat Yorkshire in 
the second round that year by 22 
runs at Hove. 

The young Boycott, playing 
his second season, batted at 
No.6 and was -Yorkshire's top 
scorer with 71 before be was run 
out. Sussex won again in 1978 at 
Leeds in a match settled by a 10- 
over slog on tbe third day. 

Of the eight surviving teams 
this year. * . Nottinghamshire, 
Leicestershire and Worcester- 
shire. have never won the 
competition. Nottinghamshire, 
the beaten finalists last year, 
won a crushing victory against 
Kent on Wednesday. .They 
might find it harder work, 
though, away - from Trent 
Bridge. Surrey, the 1982 win- 
ners. are starting to find a 
consistency that could serve 
themwelL 

Lancashire, another im- 
proved side this year, could be 
given a hard game by Leicester- 
shire at Grace Road. Clive 
Lloyd has the motivation to 
read) one more Lord's final 
before he retires, however, and 
Lancashire have fo start 
favourites against opponents 
who have never got beyond tbe 
semi-final round. 

Like Boycott, the Warwick- 
shire captain Gifford will have 
long-standing memories as be 
leads his team against 
Worcestershire- Gifford was a 
member of the Worcestershire 
side who lost finals at Lord's in 
1963 and 1966, the second time 
to Warwickshire. Currently 
Worcestershire look the better 
equiped side even though 
Warwickshire put out the hold- 
ers, Essex, on Wednesday.

No backing 


for blacking 


of Games 


By John Good body 


Britain’s black competitors 
yesterday reacted with a mix- 
lure of approval, sympathy 
and realism at the boycott by 
Nigeria and Ghana of the 
Commonwealth Games, 
which begin in Edinburgh on 
July 24. 

The boycott - even if all the 
African nations were to join in 
— will severely damage only 
the men’s track races and 
boxing. But everyone recog- 
nized that the aura of the 
“Friendly Games” would still 
be tarnished by the greatest 
disturbance to the quadrenni- 
al event since it was first 
staged in 1930. 

One man in particular who 
understood the stance of Gha- 
na in joining Nigeria by 
refusing to attend the Games 
unless Britain imposed eco- 
nomic sanctions on South 
. Africa was the sprinter, Ernest 
Obeng. 

Obeng, who ran for his 
native Ghana in the Com- 
monwealth Games in 1978 
and 1982, changed national- 
ities after being sent home 
from the 1984 Olympics and 
will represent England in Ed- 
inburgh as a relay runner. 

“Anyone who makes a 
stand against apartheid must 
be applauded,” he said “I 
fully understand the attitude 
of Nigeria and Ghana. But J 
still intend to run ” 

Obeng himself suffered 
from a boycott when Ghana, 
unlike Britain, followed an 
American call not to go to the 
1980 Olympics in Moscow 
because of the Soviet Union’s 
invasion of Afghanistan. “The 
athletes certainly saw no justi- 
fication for a boycott ibeo. 
This time I think it is going to 
destroy the Games.” 

Two athletes who were less 
sympathetic were Judy Simp- 
son. of England a stiver medal 
winner in the heptathlon, and 
Colin Jackson, of Wales, a 


high hurdler, neither of whose 
events is likely to be grievous- 
ly affected even if more coun- 
tries decide to stay away from 
Edinburgh. 

“I always thought there was 
a definite possibility of a 
boycott and the stand of the 
British Government has ag- 
gravated this,” Mrs Simpson 
said “But 1 do not think that 
wrecking the Commonwealth 
Games will alter the decision 
of the British Government, 
who already seem quite happy 
to see the Commonwealth 
breaking up.” 


at middleweight, said: “We do 
Africa. Ghana and 


not live in A' 

Nigeria are practically neigh- 
bours to a country where 
blacks are being killed daily.” 


The competitors were also 
divided about whether the 
athlete, Zola Budd, and the 


3 


who were born in Soui 
Africa, should represent En- 
gland — a decision which was 
also cited by the Africans as an 
additional reason for the boy- 
cott 


She pointed out that the 
withdrawal of various coun- 
tries from the 1980 Olympics 
did not change the mind of the 
■Soviet Union over Afghani- 
stan since they are still there 
six years later. 


Athletes would be 
against boycott 


Keith Connor, twice a win- 
ner of the triple jump and now 
a coach, ana Andrea Lynch, 
another former British inter- 
national, are to canvass mem- 
bers of the English team to 
ostracize Miss Budd, the 
favourite for the 1,500 metres. 
Tessa Sanderson, the Olympic 
javelin champion, has already 
said that the runner should 
condemn apartheid. 


“I was delighted in 1980 
when the British Olympic 
Association decided to go to 
Moscow and I am sure the 
athletes of Nigeria and Ghana 
will be devastated at the news. 
People do not realize how 
much it means to an athlete to 
compete in these Games.” 


“When we leave the shores 
of Britain we are ambassadors 
for our country and for black 
people in Britain,” Connor 
said, “but as long as Zola 
Budd refuses to take any 
stance she is still perceived as 
South African. She is a fantas- 
tic athlete but she owes the 
British team an explanation as 
to why she is not taking a 
stance.” 


Jackson said; “If the ath- 
letes of those countries who 
are boycotting the Games 
were to have a vote they 
would go to Edinburgh. But I 
do think sanctions should still 
be imposed. The blacks in 
South Africa cannot suffer any 
more than they are already 
doing.” 


Mrs Simpson thought that 
Miss Budd had a valid claim 
to compete while While said; 
“The Commonwealth coun- 
tries should have made a 
move in Los Angeles when she 
was racing there if they had 
felt strongly about it They 
should have pulled out of the 
Games then, not now “ 


All stress the difficulty of 
folly comprehending the feel- 
ing of African nations As 
Densign White, who will rep- 
resent the England judo team 


Obeng said that there were 
no moves at the moment 
within the English team to 
have Miss Budd barred from 
competing. 


CYCLING 


Pedersen takes yellow jersey 
and keeps Roche smiling 


From John WBcockson, St Hilaire de Harconet 


Everything is going right for 
Stephen Roche and his Italian 
team, Carrera, in the Tour de 
France. After Guido 
Bontempi. the team’s sprinter, 
won the sixth stage at Cher- 
bourg on Wednesday, Jorgen 
Pedersen, their Danish team- 
mate, yesterday earned the 
yellow jersey when he finished 
fourth behind Ludo Peelers, of 
Belgium, Ron Kiefel, of the 
United States, and Miguel 
Indurain, of Spain, after an 
exciting seventh stage. Roche 
finished comfortably in the 


main pack, two minutes be- 
hind. to keep 14ih place 
overall. 

Peelers and Pedersen were 
In a group of eight riders who 
split away from the pack 30 
miles from the finish after a 
series of attacks on a straight 
big dipper of a road between 
Granville and Avrenches. 
Also in the group was Paul 
Kimmage, the young Irish- 
man. who is at last finding his 
feet in his first Tour de France, 
and the potentially dangerous

the 1 984 Tour of Spain. 

With the wind at their 
backs, the leaders gained 40 
seconds before climbing the 
steep hill at Avranches. where 
the course disappeared into a 
verdant network of lanes that 
dipped and climbed along the 
barraged valley of the 
Selune 

There were several counter- 
attacks but the gap continued 
to grow until four men went 
clear. 20 miles from the end. 
Kiefel was the power behind 
the chase and the four riders 
caught the breakaway group 
four miles from the finish. 

The final sprint was uphill 
into the main square of what is 
the smallest town to host the 
Tour de France this year. 
Peelers had Marten Ducrot, 
his team mate, to lead him 
out and he managed to win the 
stage by a bike length 

“I didn’t know who to 
watch in- the sprit.” admitted 
Kiefel, from Colorado, “so I 
waited until the last moment, 
but I couldn't quite get around 
Peelers.” 

Peeters, a former Belgian 
champion, last won the stage 
of the Taurde France in 1983 
at Basle, when he also took 
over the yellow jersey. Yester- 
day. it was Pedersen who 
came out on lop when the 
time gaps had been computed, 
and he now leads the race by 
just 11 seconds from Johan 
Van der Velde, of The 
Netherlands,the former race 
leader. Pedersen is the second 
Danish rider to lead the Tour. 

Sean Yates, the Sussex pro- 
fessional, also won a trophy 
yesterday. He earned a hand- 
some copper vase for winning 
one of the day's intermediate 
sprints. Yates had made a 
brief attack with Marc 
Gomez, the former French 
champion, shortly before 
Peelers and his seven compan- 
ions disappeared into the 
distance.

Feast of Stephen: another birdie for the Moortown leader 


Stephen drives on 
as Britons crash 


By Mitchell Plaits 


Lyndsay Stephen, of Aus- 
tralia, maintained his chal- 
lenge for the Car Care Plan 
International with an enter- 
prising second round of 67 on 
the Moortown course in Leeds 
yesterday. 

Stephen now has a halfway 
aggregate of 132, which is six 
under par, and he is perfectly 
poised to spare himself the 
ordeal of being required to 
pre-qualify for the Open 
Championship, which starts at 
Tumberry next Thursday, by 
taking one of the five places on 
offer this week courtesy of the 


was more than a little sur- 
prized by the manner in which 
he managed to keep his act 
together. But he is not foreign 
to the role of cutting out the 
pace. 

Stephen is determined to 
make his presence felt because 
he believes that it would be 
beneficial to Australian golf if 
more players from that coun- 


try enjoyed universal success. 
“The troubl 


Royal and Ancient 


ven so, the resolute perfor- 
mance of the 30-year-old from 
Perth contrasted with the 
ineptitude of several of the 
British contenders who be- 
tween them played such a rash 
of indifferent strokes that they 
fell victim to the halfway 
guillotine. 

The casually list was as 
surprising as it was long with 
Gordon Brand Jnr, Eamonn 
Darcy. David Feherty, Robert 
Lee, John O'Leary, Philip 
Parkin. Des Smyth, Brian 
Waites, Paul Way and Ian 
Woosnam beating a hasty 
retreat Way later discovered 
that he had signed for a wrong 
score in the first round and 
would anyway have been dis- 
qualified. Golf is a game of 
such troughs and waves that it 
would be unrealistic to view 
such results as being disas- 


trouble with our tour is 
that we have to pay enormous 
appearance money to the likes 
of Greg Norxnan in order to 
strengthen our fields," he said. 

The Moortown course pro- 
vided a difficult examination 
with a chilly wind making club 
selection difficult, but the

What is disturbing is the 
manner in which they fell by 
the wayside while Stephen 
towards the prospect of 
irsi victory on the European 
circuit and other lesser known 
goffers such as Pteter Senior 
and Vaughan Somers, both of 
Australia, and William 
Malley. of the United States, 
remained in touch. 

Stephen made a fine start by 
holing from 20 feel fora birdie 
at the demanding second hole. 
He dropped a shot at each of 
the third and fourth holes, but 
he recovered in some style by 
gathering four birdies in five 
holes from the seventh. 

In truth Stephen himself 


South African, Gavin 
Levenson, emerged with cred- 
it by virtue of collecting five 
birdies in his last 13 holes for 
65 to move to within four 
Strokes of Stephen. 

Levenson twice took three 
putts early in his round but he 
eventually conquered the 
greens by holing from 20 ft at 
the 1 7th. then from 30 ft at the 
1 8th where he turned his back 
to the hole and missed seeing 
the ball topple into the cup on 
its last roll.

tinued his rehabilitation with 
an excellent inward half of 32, 
which is three under par. fora

onship. 


SPORT IN BRIEF 


Italians 


accused 


Rome (AP) ~ Three first 
division clubs. Udinese, Na- 
ples and Bari, were among 12 
Italian elute who had players 
and officials indicted yester- 
day on charges of “sporting 
fraud” (altering the outcome 
of matches last season in 
conjunction with illegal bet- 
ting) or “turning a blind eye” 
the rigging of up to 30 


to 



games. 

The 


charges have been 
made against SO people by the 
judicial arm of the Italian 
football federation and a sepa- 
rate criminal investigation is 
being conducted Italian justice 
officials. Any team found 
guilty faces relegation or 
point-penalties at the start of 
next season. Individuals could 
be banned for life. 

The betting scandal is simi- 
lar to the one in 1979-80 
which led to penalties against 
several top players. 


Sebastian Coe (above), 
Britain's doable Olympic 
L500 metres champion, ac- 
cepted a new challenge yester- 
day when be became one of the 
two vice-chairman of the 
Sports Council. The £10,000 a 
year job commits him to two 
and a half days a week work on 
Sports Council business. 

Coe, aged 29. has been a 
member of the council since 
1983 and succeeds lan

the association of district 
councils. 


British cannot

Despite outstanding perfor- 
mances from Nick Skelton 
and Malcolm Pyrah, who are 
lying third and fourth, the 
British had to settle for the 
silver medals behind the 
Americans in the world cham- 
pionships here yesterday. The 
French, the defending cham- 
pions, took the bronze medal 
owing entirely to Pierre

in the lead for the individual 
title, made a dramatic exit 
from the competition when 
his horse Deister refused twice 
at the first part of the 
combination. 

Neither Ronnie Massarella, 
the British team manager, nor 
his riders could disguise their 
feelings yesterday. “Pm grate- 
fol to win the silver, but it's 
still disappointing," 
Massarella said. “We’d come 
here to win the gold.” 

His disappointment and 
that of the team was increased 
because the Americans, the 
reigning Olympic gold medal- 
lists, had shown cracks in their 
armour but with the normally 
reliable John Whitaker having 
a disastrous day on Next 
Hopscotch and his brother 
Michael not finding top form 
with Warren Point the British 
were unable to capitalize on it 

Although IS teams compet- 
ed in the championships by 
the start of yesterday’s two 
round competition the gold 
medal had already become 'a 
duel between the American 
and the British — the former 
having just one fence in hand. 
The West Germans were lying 
third with the French sitting 
hard on their heels. 

Pyrah had said before the 
competition that he could not 
envisage the American team 
cracking under pressure. 
“They look foolproof,” he 


said. But British hopes were 
raised when America’s first 
rider - the petite but tough 
Katie Monahan on the Irish- 
bred Araadia — hit the com- 
paratively straightforward 
fence 9 and the last fence 
which, coming after the water, 
proved one of the most 
aifficulL- 

Her compatriot Katherine 
BurdsaU oh The Natural also 
succombed to fence 9. When 
their third rider Michael 
Matt, winner of the individual 
bronze in the 2978 world 
championships, bad- 8 faults 
on Chef they began to look 
vulnerable. 

The British had got off to a 
good start with just one time 
fault from Skelton. Michael 
Whitaker had a knockdown at 
fence 3 and then jumped too 
big into the combination and 
hit the middle port — a fault 
which Warren Point repeated 
in -the second round. Pyrah 
went next: He is riding with 
the determination one would 
expect from a man who has 

spent the last four years with 

his sights set on these 
championships. 

His horse Towerlands 
Anglezarke looked superb yes- 
terday and despite bitting the 
second part of the double of 
water ditches — which may 
have been due to- him losing 
his near-fore shoe just before 

— he finished with just 4 Vi 
faults to put Britain ahead of 
the Americans. 

A clear round from the 
fourth American — Homfeld 

— made it imperative, that 
John Whitaker should do the 
same. But disaster struck. 
Hopscotch hit each -part of the 
combination and then came to 
a grinding halt at the first 
water ditch. He completed the 
course with 39. 75 faults. 
Whitaker said afterwards it 
was the worst round of his life 


adding, with typical noncha- 
lance “but that's life, isn’t it?” 


In the second round . over 
the same course Skelton and 
Pyrah kept the Americans on 
their toes. Skelton again had 
just one time fruit and Pyrah 
had a magnificent clear round. 
With America's first rider 
Miss Monahan collecting 9 
fruits it was looking hopeftiL 
But the Americans had 
derided that was as near as the 
British were going to get Miss 
Burdsall, the least experienced 
of their four, went dear on 
The Natural, Matz and Chef 
followed their example and 
when Homfeld collected just 
four fruits the gold medal was 
theirs. John Whitaker wisely 
decided not to compete in the 
second round once he knew 
that whatever he did it would 
not make any difference

50 overs a side 
in World 


Cup 


By John Woodcock 
Cricket Correspond ait 
Rather than the matches in 
next year's Worid Cup, to be 
played in India and Pakistan, 
being of 60 overs a side and 
lasting for two days, it was 
decided at the annual meeting 
of the Imemaiional Cricket 
Conference, held at Lord's 
over the last two days, that 
they wilt be begun and fin- 
ished in a day. with 50 overs 
available to each side. 

That anyway is the idea, 
though the problem of bowl- 
ing even 100 overs in a day on 
the sub-continent has never 
yet been satisfactorily re- 
solved. One-day internation- 
als played there at the moment 
start at 9.30 and are limited to 
40 overs a side, but the short 
twilight and the inevitable 
delays mean that even (hey are 
invariably reduced. 

In most respects h was. as 
the secretary put it, “not an 
untypical ICC Conference.” 
In other words, so far as the 
curse of excessive short-

nied that he had leaked details 
of his private meeting with 
Raman Subba Row, chairman 
of the Test and County Cricket 
Board. He had been called in 
to explain alleged remarks 
about the England selectors 
made at a Manchester dinner 
and Subba Row was unhappy 
that details of the meeting 
were reputed.

A letter, drafted by the ICC, is

Australia went so far as to 
submit a paper proposing that

would be going too far, and 
that within reason it should 
remain an integral pan of the 
game. The Test and County

ceived. as was a suggestion 
that consideration be given to 
some form of restriction such 
as that used now in one-day 
cricket. 

But we have heard it all 
before. Nothing was done, 
although so far as over rates 
are concerned there is no 
earthly reason that I can see 
why one of the member 
countries in favour of a man- 
datory minimum of overs in a 
day should not makes propos- 
al which would compel the 
West Indians to toe the line. 

Both the multi-racial .South 
African Cricket Union and the 
more politically conscious 
South African Cricket Board 
reported in. not. in person but, 
in writing, and ICC members 
were left to meet delegates 
from these two bodies, nowin 
England, should they wish to.

Governing bodies are havirc 
a hard time in New Zealand' 

this week. David Lange's Gor- 

enunent Jtas a km& row to fine 
after the accommodation with 
France over the Rainbow War- 
nor affair. And there will be a 
certain amount of outrage m 
world rugby aretes after the: 
New Zealand Rugby Union 
announcement yesterday that' 

the players win took part in 
the anauthorized tour toSooth - 
Africa earlier this year could 
be back playing internationals - 
before their season ends. 

Effectively the rebel play- 
ers, known as the New Zea- 
land Cavaliers, have been 
suspended fOT two internation- 
al . matches that against 
France played last month and - 
the first of the three-match 
series against Australia, in 
Wellington on Asgost 9. Colin 
Meads, their roach, was repri- 
manded for his part In the 
affair when die NZRU council . 
met a month agMmt retained 
his post as a national selector. 

Yesterday's coancfl meeting, 
decided the players were guilty , 
of serious misconduct for tour- * 
ing Sooth Africa without per*-, 
mission and added a farther. 
one-match ban to that imposed 
a month ago. AD the rebels ' 
who are stiff active, therefore, 
wofdd be eligible for the 
remaining two games against; 
Australia, for the eight-match 1 
tour to France in October and . 
November, and for next year's 
Worid Cup.

mto 

tions of iUeBal payments to 
players in South Africa are 

rnnfinniiio : th e findings will be 
reported to the International 
Rugby Football Board when it 
meets in London in October 
specifically to discuss ama- 
teurism, ender the chairman- 
ship of Ces Btazey (New 
Zealand) and. vice chairman- 
ship of Dr Dante Craven 
(Sooth Africa). 

The Irish Rngby Union are 
due to discuss amateurism at 
their next committee meeting 
and New Zealand's decision 
will do nothing to settle their 
doubts over participation in 
the World Cap; it would be 
surprising if Brigadier Dennis 
Sbottieworth, the retiring 
RFU president and. his 
country's latest International 
Board representative, did not 
allode to the subject at today's 
annual meeting.,- - . - . 

Russ Thomas, chairman of 
the New Zealand nmnril, said 
last month that reb& players 
and management had made 
statutory declarations relating 
to pay for the tom; from which . 
one infers there were ' no 
grounds for additional disci- 
plinary action and the whole 
problem will be thrust into the 
lap of the International Board. 
Since tire board has also to 
give a ruling on the 
“compensation” paid to play- 
ers on Australia's 1984 tour to 
Britain and Ireland, which was 
inconsistent with IB regula- 
tions, October win be a busy 
month. :

Masterful 

inactivity 



If this is the end of matters 
concerning the rebel tour, then 
the players can deariy be seen 
to have got away with it; 
though there are several inter- 
pretations to-be placed 'upon 
the action — or lack of it - by 
New Zealand. One is that they 
are aware of a possible legal 
comeback by players keen to 
protect their freedom as indt- 
vidnals; another is the desire 
of some leading administra- 
tors to retain finks with South 
Africa and, therefore, their 
sympathy with the pfayers* ' 
A-thirdiaterpretatiofi is that 
by following a policy of mas- 
terful inactivity, the whole 
affair may quietly subride. 
After all, the selectors are not 
obliged to pick the rebel 
players again. The side which 
beat France 18-9 nearly a 
fortnight ago will doubtless 
receive a vote of confidence for 
the match against Astrafia 
and another goodL.peefemance 
should ensure their retention.
