Sanctions 
shift 
signalled 
by Howe 

By Philip Webster 
Chief Political 
Correspondent 

Sir Geoffrey Howe yester- 
day signalled an important 
shift in the Govonment's 
stance on South Africa when 
be told the Commons that if 
his peace mission fails further 
measures are likely to be taken 
against the Pretoria 
Goverr.mcr.t. ■ 

The Foreign Secretary told 
the Commons that in his talks 
next week with President Bo- 
tha he would be calling for 
rapid and decisive action to 
dismantle apartheid, the re- 
lease of Nelson Mandela and 
other politicial detainees and 
the ending of the ban on the 
African National Congress 
“If the mission does not 
procure tangible, substantial 
progress in South Africa I 
would regard agreement on 
some further measures as 
likely to be necessary.” 

Sir Geoffrey’s remarks, 
which caused concern on the 
Tory right, were a response to 
growing demands from within 
the Cabinet and on the Con- 
I servative back benches for a 
I Firm statement of the 
! Government’s readiness to 
impose further measures 
against South Africa 
They were clearly prompted 
by the worries of senior Cabi- 
net ministers about the possi- 
ble involvement of the Queen 
in a constitutional crisis and 
were designed to reassure 
Commonwealth countries 
that the Prime Minister, 
whom they most identify with 
complete opposition to fur- 
ther sanctions, has not closed 
the door on new measures. 

I Sir Geoffrey’s shift had been 
1 expected by several MPs who 
1 heard his private speech to the 
1 backbench foreign affairs 
committee the previous eve- 
ning. 

By the end of the debate Sir 
Geoffrey had satisfied most 
Conservative MPs calling for 
sterner action. An opposition 
motion demanding the adop- 
tion of “effective economic 
measures” was defeated by 
3J9 votes to 204. 

Mr Edward Heath, the for- 
mer Prime Minister, and Mr 
Francis Pym. a former minis- 
ter. were among a handful of 
Tory abstainers.

Botha unveils his

Africa yesterday unveiled the 
first production model of a 
new jet fighter, named the 
Cheetah, saying that it showed 
“once again our response to 
the imposition of sanctions 
against us”. 

The aircraft is a redevel- 
oped version of the French- 
made Mirage 111, which 
South Africa began using in 
the early 1960s. Since 1977, 
South Africa has been subject 
to an international arms em- 
bargo. and has' turned to 
indigenous production. 

“We are a strong and proud 
nation, with the faith and 
ability to ensure our future. 
We are not a nation of 
jellyfish,” Mr Botha said. 
South Africa would not allow 
itself “to be humiliated and 
undermined in order to escape 
sanctions”.

Minister of Defence, de-

claimed yesterday it was supe-

The SADF revealed few

about 50 per cent of the

“reconstructed", with consid- 
erable changes to ihe airframe

explored 

by Alvin 

From Paul Validly 
New York 

A robot camera, powered by 
four tiny thruster jets, yester- 
day floated eerily down four 
flights of the grand staircase 
of tbe wreck of the SS Titanic, 
almost 2 16 miles below tbe 
surface of the Atlantic. 

It took hundreds of “spec- 
tacular and beautiful” photo- 
graphs, giving tbe _ three 
submarine explorers in the 
titanium sphere which con- 
trols tbe camera the first views 
of the interior of tbe sunken 
luxury liner since she went 
down in the early hours ot 
April IS, 1912. I 

The robot, known as Jason 
Junior, is attached by a 200 ft | 
cable to the pressurized sphere | 
which is the self-contained 1 
core of the submarine Alvin. 
Dr Robert Ballard, leader of 
the team from the Woods Hole 
Oceanographic Institute, said 1 
“it was like landing on the 
moon” as tbe Alvin glided 1 
down towards the dark cavern 
on the top deck, which was 
once a massive glass roof 
above the elegant columns of 
the stairway to the fiist-dass 
accommodation. 

The crew of the Alvin, using 
a remote-controlled joystick, 
detached the 28-inch robot 
from its platform on the bow of 
the submarine and defies tely 
manoeuvred it “tike a small 
helicopter” into tbe wreck. 

“We saw decks and columns 
and rooms, like a layer cake,” 
said Dr Ballard. Then the 
robot entered a room which 
may have been the grand ball- 
room, where tbe crew saw a 
large crystal chandelier hang- 
ing intact from the ceiling. 

Tbe outside of the 13-storey 
hull was coal black, but rust 
has created a panorama of 
brilliant red, orange and yel- 
low inside. Tbe robot's cam- 
eras revealed (hat the wreck 
has deteriorated far more than 
had been thought 
Tbe_ expedition — and the 
$2JS million research project 
which preceded it — is bring 
funded by the US Navy. One. 
of Dr Ballard's mam interests 1 
is to discover bow well the 
Titanic has survived the dete- 
riorating forces of die seabed. 

Bat the experiment has con- 
siderable military potential. 
Most conventional submar- 
ines become unsafe below 1 
12,000 ft Yet die world's 1 
deepest ocean trenches, whidi ! 
constitute half of the seabed, , 
are nearly three times that I 
deep. j 

Tbe Alvin is certified to , 
work at depths of 13£00 ft, 1 
more than 1,000 ft below tbe 1 
bed on which tbe Titanic lies. 1 
Its work there, together with ; 
that of the robot camera whidi 
can work at depths that would 1 
crash both submarines, coaid | 
lay the groundwork for tech- 
nology to investigate enemy 
sonar systems and to hide 
missile-bearing submarines in 
the deepest ocean trenches. 


on child 
workers 

By Richard Evans 

Political Correspondent 

Local authorities through- 
out England and Wales are to 
be given access to information 
on police criminal records, in 
a new bid to prevent them 
employing people who have 
committed sex offences 
against children. 

The radical move, 10 be 
announced today by Mr 
David Mellor, a junior Home 
Office minister, follows an 
inter-departmental inquiry 
into the murder of a four-year- 
old girl by a persistent sex 
offender, who was taken on by 
a local authority as a baby 
sitter. Colin Evans, who had 
numerous convictions for of- 
fences against children, was 
sentenced 10 life 
imprisonoment for killing 
Marie Payne in 1984. 

In another case Leonard 
Grange, a caretaker at a 
primary school in south-west 
London who also had previ- 
ous criminal convictions, was 
jailed for life last November 
for murdering a nine-year-okl 
pupil. 

In ftiture, applicants for 
local council jobs involving 
day-to-day contact with chil- 
dren. such as teachers, school 
caretakers and social workers, 
will be asked to sign a form 
saying they tave no objection 
to a search of police records 
for possible convictions. 

Council chiefs will then be 
able to request police to go 
through their files to ascertain 
whether the potential recruits 
have a criminal record which 
could tave a bearing on the 
job. 

The Government action is 
unlikely to require new legisla- 
tion and will be covered by the 
Rehabilitation of Offenders 
Act of 1974. 

A Home Office circular 
announcing the change is 
likely 10 be sent out within the 
next few days. 

Pound rallies 
as dollar 
hits new low 

The pound recovered 
strongly against the dollar 
yesterday, removing fears that 
base rates might have to be 
forced higher to stem its fall. It 
gained 1.38 cents to S 1.5075 
and was later quoted in New 
York at $1.5140. 

The dollar was weak against 
all currencies, felling to a post- 
war low of 158 against ihe 
Japanese yen, after Japan's 
central bank ruled out a cut in 
the discount rate. 

Government stocks rose as 
the pound recovered, helped 
by the announcement that 
Government borrowing — at 
£599 million last month — was 
lower than expected. 

Shares were up in both 
London and New York.

Anglo-Irish pact under 
strain as King defends 
RUC even-handedness 


By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 


:-?.The eight-month-old Anglo- 
Irish agreement was last night 
•.under its biggest strain alter 
:the outburst against the Royal 
'■rUlster Constabulary made by 
• Mr Peter Barry, the Irish 
Republic's Foreign Minister. 
----- la the Commons, Mr Tom 
'King, Secretary of State for 
■; Northern Ireland, was ada- 
■ inani that the operational 
^decisions of the RUC were 
entirely a matter for the Chief 
. - Constable of the province and 
..defended the way police bad 
-sought to deal even-handediy 
with both communities. 

While Mr King refrained 
Tftom attacking Mr Barry per- 
-sonaJJy for the stinging rebuke 
•delivered from Dublin, it was 
-made dear in Whitehall last 
: ‘night that he is furious at the 
■content and timing of the Irish 
- . minister’s comments. 

-r._- Conservative MPs were 
quick to point out that Mr 
.Barry’s comments appeared to 
-rbreach the Anglo-Irish agree- 
\:mem by attempting to direct 
T'-how the RUC foould operate. 
-:cr. Mr King, who admitted to 
. .-MPs that he had no prior 
•; - warning of Mr Barry's critical 
remarks about the handling of 
•-■“loyalist* 1 parades in the prov- 
ince, confirmed he had re- 
reived messages from Mr 
-Barry expressing his concern 
? iabout recent events. 

:: In a statement, Mr King 
. insisted that operational deci- 
sions on routing of “loyalist" 
parades in Northern ireland 


were entirely a matter for Sir 
John Hermon, Chief Consta- 
ble of the RUC. and he had no 
intention of intervening. 

Mr Barry had said in his 
statement on Tuesday night 
that he shared the deep resent- 
ment of nationalists in North- 
ern Ireland about certain 
operational decisions made by 
the RUC on the routing of 
marches. 

• Mr Barry last night de- 
fended his comments, saying 
the agreement had given him 
the right to express his views 
on the rights of northern 
nationalists and he intended 
to do that strenuously (Rich- 
ard Fond writes). 

He added that his criticism 
was not against the RUC in 
general but whoever was re- 
sponsible for the decision to 
allow the Orange parade 
through the Roman Catholic 
area in Portadown. 

Mr Barry said it was time 
the security forces stood up to 
Unionist bullies and slopped 
intimidatory marches through 
Roman Catholic areas which 
nationalists bad suffered for a 
hundred years. He said the 
decision to allow the parade 
along the Garvaghy Road was 
provocative as it was an SO per 
cent Roman Catholic area and 
he believed that the RUC had 
backed down in. front of bully 
boys. However, he said the 
ordinary members of the RUC 
had for the most part carried 
out their duties in a fair and 


even handed way throughout 
a very tough 12 months. 

The latest victim of loyalist 
terror gangs in Belfast died 
yesterday two days after being 
dragged from the door of his 
home and shot three times in 
the head. 

Colum McCaUan, a Roman 
Catholic university student 
aged 25, had been on a 
liresupport machine at the 
Royal victoria Hospital since 
the shooting on the Ligoniel 
estate in the north of the city 
early on Monday morning. He 
had moved to the estate a year 
ago with his wife Bernie and 
two-year-old son Seamus and 
is the second Roman Catholic 
to be killed by the outlawed 
Protestant Action Force in 
five days. 

Before grabbing Mr 
McCallan, the three masked 
terrorists had attempted to 
seize another Roman Catholic 
who was walking his dog but 
he managed to run away. Last 
week the Protestant Action 
Force shot dead a Roman 
Catholic man 

Since the beginning of the 
year loyalist terrorists have 
killed four nationalists and a 
Protestant woman in the west 
and north of the city and the 
ominous re-emergence of loy- 
alist paramilitaries in the 
north of the city is bringing 
fear to an area where they were 
their most ruthless in the early 
years of the troubles.

daily harmful chemicals. 

A new draft code of prac- 
tice, published jointly by the 
Ministry of Agriculture, the 
„ Department of Agriculture for 
^Scotland and the Welsh Of- 
,/^Xtce, is intended to provide 
% practical guidance to farmers 
•'.on how to comply with the 
hew regulations, which take 
effect later this year. 

But it is also the most open 
admission yet of the potential 
risk to human health and 
r -safety, wildlife and the envi- 

* ronment posed by pesticides. 

The code advises fanners 
. that failure to follow the 

* guidance will not in itself be 
[ an offence, but it wfll be 
; admissible in evidence in any 

* criminal proceedings brought 
; under the Food and Environ- 
ment Protection Act 1985.

: pesticide should be one that is 
j least likely to damage crops in

i wildlife, if it should drift, and 
i one which presents minimal 
I risk to livestock, domestic 
j -animals, bees and fish. 


almost £50 million for crimi- 
nal court solicitors and barris- 
ters was announced by the 
Government yesterday. 

The package, announced 
after four months of negotia- 
tions in the wake of the 
profession's legal proceedings 
against Lord H ailsham of St 
Marylebone, the Lord Chan- 
cellor, will mean a substantial 
10 percent increase in fees by 
next April. 

There will also be a new top 
level pay advisory committee, 
to be set up jointly by the Lord 
Chancellor with the Law Soci- 
ety and the Bar, which will 
collect data on lawyers' earn- 
ings to form the basis of future 
pay negotiations. 

In exchange, the profession 
has agreed to certain reforms 
in working practices and to the 
setting up of a new standing 
commission on efficiency in 
the courts. 


The new fee scale for prosecu- 
tion work amounted to £30 
million. 

In the last fortnight Lord 
Chancellor also agreed that 
solicitors working in London 
should have an extra 2 per 
cent weighting. 

In both cases the Govern- 
ment has agreed to pay money 
in exchange for reforms to i 
working practices. The Bar 
has been offered 5 per cent 
2 per cent of which is in return 
for agreeing to let counsel 1 
appear in magistrates' court 
cases without the need for a 
solicitor to attend him. and for 
QCs to appear alone without , 
junior counsels having to 
attend. ; 

Solicitors are being paid an 
extra 6.5 per cent (8 J percent 
in London).

Mr Tony Girling, chairman

disappointed that the pro-

the 25-40 percent which solic- 
itors believed was fair and 
reasonable on the baas of an 
independent survey.

Birkbeck College, London, 
said yesterday that it did not 
know that London University 
had changed its policy on 
funding the college, and was 
being more “tight-fisted" than 
in the past (Our Education 
Correspondent writes). 

In a letter to The Times 
yesterday. Sir Peter Sninner- 
ton-Dyer, chairman of the 
University Grants Commis- 
sion (UGO, disclosed the 
secret of London University's 
change in funding. 

He said that fora number of 
i years the court of London 
University had given more 
money to Birkbeck than that 
allowed for in the UGC grant | 
“This year the court has 1 
decided to change that policy." 

The revelation throws light , 
on complaints that Birkbeck, 
the only college for the educa- ! 
tion of part-time adults, was ! 
being put in jeopardy by a 
change in the UGC funding 
formulae. 

Professor Roderick Flood, 
chairman of the college's cam- 
paign committee, said: “Be- 
cause of the complicated 
method by which these things 
have been done, we did not 
know about this. Bat we don't 
think the UGC can escape 
from its responsibilities to 
provide proper funding for a 
my cost-effective institution. 

“To say that we have been 
funded properly in the past is 
nota reason for saying that we 
should not be in the future. 
The UGC is adopting a very 
simplistic formate approach 
that doesn't recognize the 
legitimate needs of an Institu- 
tion devoted to part-timers." 

A letter from the president 
or the students' union to Sir 
Peter said that by 1990 
Btrkbeck's accumulated defi- 
■dt would be bigger Chan its 
annual income from the UGC.

have to be made if the deficit

Labour anger on Liberal poll ‘dirt 9 


By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 


The Liberal Party will do 
severe damage to die tone of 
British politics if ft persists 
with its “dirty” campaigning 
tactics, Mr Robin 1 Cook, 
Labour's national campaign 
coordinator, said yesterday on 
the eve of the poll in the 
Newcastle-under-Lyme by- 
election. 

Pledging his party to fight 
dean, Mr Cook deplored the 
personal attacks on Mrs Lite 
Golding, the Labonr front- 
runner in the North Stafford- 
shire contest. 

He said that they were in 
hue with the seamy style 
adopted by the Liberals under 

Mr Andrew EDis, its secretary 


general, since Mr Peter 
TatcbdTs defeat in Bermond- 
sey in 1983. 

Mr Cook said: "This is the 
by-election in which the hid- 
den face of the Liberal party 
has been rumbled. 

“They bare been caught out

“As Dr Jekyll discovered, 
yon cannot indefinitely lead a 
doable life. Mr Hyde is catch- 
ing ap and people are seeing 
that they are not the nice dean 
gays they pretend to be.” 

Labour's anger centres on 
repeated references to the way 
Mrs Golding was elected,

he resigned the seat on being

Mr Cook promised that 
Labour would not stoop to 
such tactics and challenged 
Mr Ellis to do likewise. 

He said: “If he continues in 
bis present style not only will 
he eventually hurt his own 
party, he win do severe, possi- 
bly permanent, damage to the 
tone of British politics." 

The Liberals brushed aside

Lord Crawshaw of Aintree. 
the SDP peer, was found dead 
yesterday at his flat in Dol- 
phin Square, London. He was 
68 . 

The former Labour MP for 
Liverpool Toxteth from 1964, 
Lieutenant-Colonel Richard 
Crawshaw resigned from the 
party in 1981 to join the Social 
Democratic Party. 

Lord Crawshaw was due to 
row for the Alliance peers in 
yesterday's parliamentary 
rowing regatta on the Thames. 
Friends at Westminster said 
that he had been exercising 
hard for the race. 

He listed among his hobbies 
climbing, walking, free-fall 
parachuting and youth activi- 
ties, and in 1972 set a world 
non-stop walking record of 
225.8 miles. 

Mrs Shirley Williams, SDP 
president, said Lord 
Crawshaw was “one of the 
bravest most modest men I 
ever met". 

“In joining the SDP, he 
risked his seat his position as 
deputy Speaker and his 
future.” 

Dr David Owen, the SDP 
leader, said: “Dick Crawshaw 
will be deeply missed. He was 
the first ever SDP-nominaled 
life peer."

Mr David Steel and Dr 
David Owen unveiled their 
joint policy agreement yester- 
day, which they hope will 
temporarily cover up the 
cracks in their defence 
policies. 

The emphasis is cm Britain's 
contribution to a European 
nuclear deterrent But while it 
is full of general policy state- 
ments, it does not mention the 
future or replacement of Po- 
laris. 

It is the result of several 
months work on a programme 
of Alliance objectives, aimed 
at giving a dear joint agree- 
ment in the run-up to the next 
general election. 

The rift has been caused by 
Dr Owen's call for a dear 
Alliance commitment to re- 
place Polaris when it becomes 
obsolete, unless world circum- 
stances change dramatically. 
Mr Steel is willing to go along 
with an earlier Alliance report, 
which said that the decision 
could be put off for years.

They are continuing their 
talks with European defence 
chiefs during the summer and 
autumn, including a visit to 
Nato in early September. The 
policy is expected to be final- 
ized in January. But Mr Steel 
refused to speculate on wheth- 
er this would include the 
foture of Polaris. 

The document concentrates 
on areas of agreeement 

“The Atlantic Alliance will, 
however, continue to depend 
in part on nuclear weapons for 
minimum deterrence for the 
foreseeable furore, pending 
the step-by-step process of 
confidence-building and ar-

are determined will assist the 
transition from collective to 
common security.

Ford to invest £45m at

The National Union of members are not providing 


Teachers announced yester- 
day that it would not be 
appealing against a High 
Court judgement that teachers 
are contractually bound to 
take the lessons of absent 
colleagues. 

At the same time the union 
made clear that it was pre- 
pared to use the weapon of 
refusal to cover in furore 
disputes, in spite of the ruling. 

Refusal to cover was an 
effective weapon in last year’s 
teachers’ pay dispute, leading 
to thousands of children going 
without lessons and being sent 
home. It is still being used in 
some areas, although the 
union has advised teachers to 
return to providing cover. 

Mr Doug McAvoy, deputy 
general secretary of the NUT, 
said: “If in the autumn our 


cover because we have reim- 
posed no-cover as a sanction, 
then we would support our 
members accordingly." 

The union said yesterday 
that it would be seeking a 
negotiated agreement with lo- 
cal authority employers on the 
issue of cover for absence, in 
the current talks on pay 

Mr McAvoy insisted that 
the union would retain the 
option of imposing no-cover i 
as a sanction if the talks foiled. 

In the talks on pay and 
conditions, the union is pro- > 
pared to provide cover for the i 
first day of a teacher’s absence 
if it can obtain agreement on

By a Staff Reporter 

Staff representatives from 
News International's 
workforce at Wapping are to 
meet Mr Rupert Murdoch for 
talks on the six-month 
dispute. 

The salaried staff council, 
which represents all employ- 
ees except journalists, request- 
ed the talks to clarify details of 
Mr Murdoch’s recent meeting 
in Los Angeles with leaders of 
the electricians' union, 
EETPU. 

Mr Eric Hammond, the 
union’s general secretary, put 
proposals to the News Inter- 
national chairman at that 
meeting for a resumption of 
negotiations with traditional 
print union leaders represent- 
ing 5.500 workers who were 
dismissed. The company said 
Iasi night that the meeting 
with staff representatives 
would take place within the 


Print unions could not be 
held responsible for people 
with “side minds" who take a 
“sadistic delight" in exploiting 
demonstrations at the News 
International plant in 
Wapping, east London, it was 
claimed in the High Court 


ye |^Eidred Tabachnik QC, 
for Soeat '81 also said that the 


for Sogat ’82, alst) said that the 
right of the unions to hold 
marches to Wapping was as 
lawful as the royal wedding 
procession next week- He was 


speaking on the fifth day of 
News International's bid to 
curb mass picketing at its 
plant 

Processions were perfectly 
lawful provided they were 
peaceful and orderly, Mr 
Tabachnik said. People not 
involved in the dispute may 
wish to exploit them, but it 
was absolutely clear their be- 
haviour was not condoned or 
authorized by the union. 

He told Mr Justice Stuart- 
Smitii that when considering 
whether to gram an injunction 
J * ’ationa!

ing the number of pickets 
outside the plant to six, it was 
important to draw a distinc- 
tion between demonstrators 
near the plant and pickets on 
the gate. 

He said mass picketing was 
a mob at the gate, seeking by 
violence, intimidation and 
sheer force of numbers to stop 
people going in or out “But 
what is happening at Wapping 
is very far from that 
description" 

Police on duty at the plant 
normally limited pickets on 
the gate to six. There was a 
substantia] gap of some 85 
yards between them and dem- 
onstrators. 

He said that nobody could 
complain just because he had 
to go through a crowd to get to 
and from work. It would be 
“totally wrong in law and 
illogical" to measure the law- 
fulness of a gathering by the 
numbers attending. 

The judge commented that 
the more people there were the 
more frightening it was and 
the more difficult they west to 


they behaved perfectly proper- 
ly “it does not matter, whether 
you have five or 500". 

Mr Tabachnik said that

Teenage fruit machine 
gamblers are a threat 
to families, parents say 


The number of teenage 
gamblers in Britain addicted 
to playing fruit machines is 
becoming a growing menace 
to family life, a newly-formed 
parents support group claimed 
yestentey. Parents of Young 
Gamblers, which was 
launched at the House of 
Commons, says youngsters 
aged 10 and 12 are often seen 
entering gambling arcades 
where they spend hours gam- 
■ Dling on fruit machines. Many 
eventually turn to crime as a 
means of funding their 
addiction. 

Teenagers who become 
compulsive gamblers, often 
withdraw from family life, 
developing an obstinate sul- 
lenness. Parents of Young 
Gamblers hopes that as a 
group it can offer advice, 
information and help to bring 
about greater public aware- 
ness Of the need for legislation 
to reduce the growing number 
of victims. 

Although the number of 
youngsters affected by this 
gambling addiction is un- 
known, Gamblers Anon- 
ymous say the 2,000 children, 
who are brought in each year 
'by their parents seeking help, 
is “just the tip of the iceberg”. 

Mrs Hazel Nathan, of 
Yeovil, Summerset. whose 20- 
year-old son, Andrew, has 
been gambling since he was 


By AngeRa Johnson 

12, said he had to steal to fund 
his addition. 

“At first, it was taking 
money from the family and 
even selling pieces of my 
jewellery, but once he l aft 
school things became worse 
and he began stealing from bis 
employers. 

“He would come out of 
court with a fine for £500, 
which the family bad to pay. 
only to end up back in court 
within a short time for the 
same offence of stealing and 
on one occasion, burglary. 

“The last straw for me came 
when he stole and sold the 
final present given 10 me by 
my husband before he died. ! 
was devastated, and it made 
me realize how big a problem 
he had. 

“We are now working to- 
gether to try and contain it, 
but it will lake some lime.'* 

Mrs Nathan recently deliv- 
ered a 3,000 signature petition 
to Yeovil council calling for 
closer examination of the 
effect the town's three amuse- 
ment arcades were having on 
teenagers. She would like to 
see an age limit introduced for 
the users of such arcades. 

Her son, who was recently 
convicted of stealing £500 
from his employers, said he 
became addicted to gambling 
on machines during family

‘in death 
cash offer 9 

William Jones, an oil rig 
worker, told a jury yesterday 
how a wealthy divorcee of- 
fered him £10,000 to kill her 
, former husband. 

He told Cardiff Crown

aged 48, paid his air fare from 
Norway to Britain before of- 
fering the deal. 

Mr Jones, aged 42, who is 
resident in Norway, said: “She

Full rehearsal for wedding procession 


By Alan Hamilton 

Royal coaches and nearly 
200 troopers of the Household 
Cavalry were doe on toe 
streets of London at dawn this 
morning for a full-scale re- 
hearsal of the royal wedding 
processions to and from West- 
minster Abbey, with officials 
chocking toe timing of the 
journeys. 

The rehearsal was due to 
finish by 630am so that 
morning traffic would not be 
disroptod. 

Yesterday the Royal Mews 
at Buckingham Palace gave a 
preview to journalists of the 
nine coaches and 28 horses to 
be used oa toe day. 

Miss Sarah Ferguson will 
ride from Clarence House to 


toe abbey m toe Glass Coach, 
which was built in 1910, 
bought by King George V for 
bis Coronation, and was used 
to carry toe Princess of Wales 
to her wedding in 1981. Prince 
Andrew wOl ride to the abbey, 
and the couple will return, in 
the magnificent 1902 opeiHop 
state landau. 

The Queen and other mem- 
bers of toe Royal Family will 
also travel in open landans, 
unless it is raining. In that 
case the bride and groom will 
return in toe Scottish State 
Coach, and the Queen in the 
Irish State Coach. 

Lieutenant-Colonel Sir 
John Miller, the Crown 
Eqseny in charge of the Royal 
Mews, said that in the event of 
a sadden change in the weath- 


er the coaches could be 
switched very quickly, even 
while the service was in 
progress. 

The Glass Coach will be 
drawn by two experienced 
bays. Brown Owl and Gos- 
hawk, and driven by royal 
coachman Mr Cecfl Nelson, 
who has been promoted since 
the 1981 royal wedding when 
he was an outrider. 

Among the coachmen and 
footmen on toe carriages will 
be several armed police dis- 
guised as Royal Mews staff 
The real footmen include Mr 
Andrew McGill, aged 23, of 
Liverpool, who was unem- 
ployed until he saw toe post 
advertised in his local 
Jobcentre. 

• The Archbishop of Canter- 


bury, Dr Robert Runcie, and 
Mr James Wilkinson, his 
cross-bearer, have been invest- 
ed with an unexpected author- 
ity for the royal wedding 
(Gavin Bell writes). 

Apart from sanctifying the 
marriage, they win be in a 
position to permit — or to 
deprive — millions of televi- 
sion viewers throughout the 
world a glimpse of toe couple’s 
faces daring toe ceremony. 

ITV executives said yester- 
day that toe conple’s faces 
could be blocked if Dr Runcie 
or bis assistant more in front 
of a remote-controlled camera 

Mr Barrie Sales, ITV’s 
executive producer for the 
event, said: “If they move six 
inches either way, we could be 
in trouble.” 


Five-year 
scheme to 
boost jobs 
in tourism 

By Derek Harris 

Industrial Editor 

A five-year scheme to pro- 
vide thousands of jobs in: a 
national tourism development 
network was launched yester- 
day by Lord Young .of 
Graffbam. Secretary of State 

for Employment. 

In the first annual govern- 
ment audit on progress. 'i a 
boosting tourism to provide 
more jobs. Lord Young said 
t hat th e English Tourist Board 
(ETB) would develop a net- 
work of tourist development 
action programmes (TDAPs), 
which could have a big impact 
onjob creation. 

The latest TDAP launched 
by the board will create more 
than 3,000 jobs in the Ports- 
mouth area, with a £200 mil- 
lion public and private sector 
investment in tourist facili- 
ties. Similar schemes are also 
under way in Bristol, Brad- 
ford, Tyne and Wear, Exmoor 
and Kidder Water. 

Lord Young said that two 
further TDAPs would be start- 
ed. in the Birmingham city 
centre and in the Forest 1 ' of 
Dean, Gloucestershire, while 
Bridlington, Humberside, .and 
Torbay. Devon, were also 
being considered. 

Two other candidates were 
London's docklands and parts 
of the West Country affected 
by tin mining cutbacks. The 
report said that the docklands 
offered “an exceptional 
Opportunity" for the develop- 
ment of a wide range of tourist 
accommodation. 

Research on job creation by 
the tourism ana leisure indus- 
try indicated that jobs rose by 
43,000, or 3.5 per cent, in the 
year to June 1985. 

Lord Young discounted 
fears that the decline in Amer- 
ican tourists, arising from- the 
weak dollar and recent terror- 
ism scares, might curb the 
growth in tourism jobs. He 
said that the industry was now 
“back on course”.

South Africa debate • Irish complaint • BL buses 


Negotiations still the best and 
quickest way to end apartheid 


SOUTH AFRICA 


Tory Party's funds, or over £1 
nilJii 


million, were contributed by 
firms with operations or estates 
in South Africa. 

Nothing (he said) can dent the 
Prime Minister’s unassailable 


complacency and the inspis- 
whicn it 


Sr Geoffrey Howe. Secretary of 
State for Foreign and 
Commonwealth Affairs, 
told the Commons that if his 
mission to South Africa did not 
procure tangible and substantial 
progress in South Africa, be 
would regard agreement on 
some further measures as likely 
to be necessary. 

He outlined the main points 
he will be putting to President 
Botha of South Africa and Mr 
Pik Botha, its Foreign Secretary, 
when he is in that country. 

He said he would use these 
meetings to explore the 
intentions of the South African 
Government to take measures 
further to dismantle apartheid. 
He would urge on them the need 
to act rapidly and decisively in 
that direction if further tragedy 
was to be avoided. 

Most urgently of all. lie would 
press on them the need to 
release Nelson Mandella and 
other political detainees and to 
unban the ANC and other 
political parties. 

The Foreign Secretary also set 
out the five main propositions 
he had put to each of the four 
leaders of African states be had 
so for met — three on bis first 
visit to Africa and one that day 
in London. These were; 

• Apartheid must give way to 
a noiHracial folly representative 
society. 

• It should be acknowledged 
’that change in South Africa bad 
taken place. There must be more 
and more quickly but it would 
be wrong not to acknowledge 
the change that had taken place. ^ 

• Negotiations still remained 
the best and quickest means of 
Ininging apartheid to an end. 
Violence would prolong the 
process of change and prolong 
misery. The right setting for 
dialogue and change should be 
the suspension of violence on all 
sides. 

• He had made the point that 
comprehensive mandatory 
sanctions would not, as some 
liked to believe, bring down the 
South African Government. It 
was not on the verge of collapse. 

• They must continue to 
identify and exploit every 
chance and opportunity for 
dialogue. 

From the discussions, he said, 
three things had emerged. First, 
there was complete agreement 
about objectives. Second, there 
were significant and 
understandable differences 
about means, including 
differences between the four 
leaders, and third, greater 
readiness to accept the sincerity 
of the mission he was 
undertaking. 

A ban on all investment was 
desirable but would have little 
effect beyond what was going to 
happen anyway. He had not met 
anyone recently who was 
prepared to put a penny of new 
money into South Africa if he 
could help it 

Whatever package was finally 
adopted it must be the subject of 
collective action by a lame 
number of states, hopefully 
through the United Nations, ft 
must be strict and swift It was 
no good the Prime Minister 
thinking that she could put off 
decisions beyond tbe 
Commonwealth conference. To 
seek delay now would mean that 
decision would come too late. 

Mrs Thatcher's arguments 
had become wilder and wilder. 
She should apologize to Bishop 
Tulu and the Synod of the 
Church of England whom she 
had accused of immorality. This 
was disgraceful and unmerited. 

She has been weeping croco- 
dile tears (he said) over the 
potential sufferings of the South 
African blacks when we have 
had not a murmur of complaint 
from her against their actual 
suffering over the past 30 years. 

■We have seen her (be contin- 
ued) with her eyes brimming 
with tears of compassion over 
the prospects of unemployment 
in the United Kingdom arising 
out of sanctions, though we now 
hear that at most 20,000 jobs 
might be lost if mandatory 
sanctions were introduced im- 
mediately, yet she herself has 
created two million un- 
employed by her own policies 
without batting an eyelid. 

She has not deceived anyone 
by this display of compassion 
because Mr Botha, the foreign 
minister, had said her policy 
was determined not by political 
or moral considerations, but by 
commercial considerations. 
Doubtless he was referring to 
the fact that nearly half of the 


sated ignorance from 
springs. 

Mrs Thatcher had referred to 
the Rhodesian settlement by 
negotiation. But that settlement 
tom place only because she 
reversed the policy on which she 
was elected, under pressure 
from tbe Commonwealth, at a 
conference attended by the 


five, totally enforceable and 
have the least effect on the from 
line states, namely financial 
sanctions. 


brave decisions were not taken 
to bring about change rapidly 
enough. The decisions to be 
taken would require great 
bravery. 

The European Council 
wanted dialogue rather than 
violence to achieve peaceful 
change. The Council recognized 
the importance of the work of 

.the Eminem Persons Group, a i fii 

Queen against Mrs Thatcher’s group which came into being, for not-overall 
firm advice. not because of the obduracy of Dfo not- overall dt 

Before his visit to South the Prime Minister, but because - - ~ 


his visit to 

Africa be bad believed that a 
gradual escalation of sanctions 
by steps was the best way 
forward, but since his visit he 
had changed his mind. Every 
single person he had spoken to 
in the black community inside 
and outside that country, as well 
as businessmen in the white 
community, who believed sanc- 
tions were necessary, believed 
that by for the best way would be 
comprehensive mandatory 
sanctions because that would 
bring the matter to a head faster. 

He agreed with Mr Malcolm 
Fraser that it was not a question 
of turning the screw gently but 
of a hard blow. 


Mr Denis Healey, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on foreign and 
Commonwealth affairs, opening 


Mrs Thatcher and other 
Commonwealth leaders were 
able to reach a common po- 
sition. 

Because the European Coun- 
cil desired to renew the mo- 
mentum of the work of the EPG 
he was asked to undertake a 
fresh mission on behalf of 12 
European states. He did not 
underestimate the difficulty of 
that task. 

While in South Africa (he 
said) 1 shall seek also to meet a 
wide range of people of ail 
colours representing all opin- 
ions throughout South Africa. 

1 recognize there has been 
reluctance so for on tbe part of 
some South African leaders. 
Whether or not they agree with 


Mr Edward Heath (Old Bexley 
and Sidcup,C) said the situation 
was. confused and the Govern- 
ment had a great responsibility 
for thatThe Opposition was 
arguing for effective deterrents 
and the. Government was argu- 
all deterrents,

It is this situation which is 
leading to a false situation (he 
said). It is giving the impression 
that tbe Government is with 
only the greatest reluctance 
considering the situation in 
South Africa or taking any 
action about it.

Healey: Thatcher’s astonishing 
series of interviews 


the debate, said that the Prime 
Minister had already wrecked 
the Commonwealth Games and 
now risked wrecking the 
Commonwealth as wriL 

She had also created a 
constiluional crisis of mqjor 
dimensions which involved the 
Palace itself. Events had reached 
such a stage that, according to 
several newspapers, several of 
her own senior cabinet col- 
leagues had been warning the 
press of this constitutional crisis 
during the past 24 hours 

Mr Healey was moving an 
Opposition motion urging the 
Government to support the 
adoption of effective economic 
measures against Sooth Africa, 
recommended by tbe Eminent 
Persons Group, to exert 
pressure and promote the 
ing of apartheid. 

The motion said this was 
essential to prevent a bloodbath 
in South Africa with all the 
accompanying misery and 
political, social and economic 
chaos. 

Mr Healey said tbe Foreign 
Secretary bad never wanted to 
go on his mission to Africa. He 
had had an altercation with the 
Prime Minister as be was enter- 
ing the aircraft on tbe way to 
Harare. According to newspaper 
reports, the Prime Minister had 
said that if that was tbe. way he 
felt, perhaps he had better not go 
at all. 

If the Prime Minister was 
really determined on this mis- 
sion of appeasement (he said), 
why did she not follow the 
precedent set by Neville 
Chamberlain and go herself? 

After the Foreign Secretary 
had left, she drove nail after nail 
into the coffin of his mission 
with an astonishing series of 
interviews. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe moved a 
Government amendment 
reasserting Britain’s 

commitment to tbe 
Commonwealth and tbe goal of 
peaceful change in South Africa 
through negotiation and 
expressing the belief that general 
economic sanctions would not 
help to secure that objective. 

It noted that the Government 
was committed by the Nassau 
Accord and the declaration by 
the European Council at the 
Hague on June 27 1986 to 
consultations with the 
Commonwealth, Community 
and other allies on further 
measures which might be 
needed and welcomed the 
Foreign Secretary’s efforts as 
President of tbe Twelve to 
establish conditions in which 
negotiations could take place. 

He said that explicit recog- 
nition by the leaders of tbe 
South African Govenmment 
that apartheid must end was an 
important step in (he right 
direction. He understood tbe 
fears of some South Africans 
which acted as a constraint on 
change. But these fears were 
more likely to be fulfilled if 


at present, I 
lieve h is wise for 
them to withdraw their advice at 
this stage from the mission I am 
undertaking. I hope on reflec- 
tion they will be abte to accept 
the sincerity of the mission 1 am 
undertaking on behalf of the 
EEC 

This Government more than 
any other British government 
had implemented folly and 
conscientiously with its Euro- 
pean partners a whole series of 
measures desioied to make 
dear its view of the imperative 
need to bring apartheid to an 
end. 

These measures affected eco- 
nomic, sporting and cultural 
relations between Britain and 
South Africa. They had been 
calculated not to threaten, not to 
destroy, but to encourage and to 
promote change — the need for 
which they were all agreed. 

Possible further measures to 
achieve that objective were not 
excluded. The Prime Minister 
had said Britain was not nego- 
tiating through weakness but in 
a way believed to have the best 
chance of success. That was 
precisely the same fashion in 
which he would conduct the 
mission entrusted to him. 

It was agreed that in the next 
three months tbe Community 
would enter into consultations 
with tbe other industrialized 
countries on further measures 
which might be needed. 

There was and is (he said) no 
concept of antomaticity about 
further measures but we have 
agreed to consider them. J am 
engaged in a mission to Sooth 
Africa, not to promote measures 
but to seek the changes, to seek 
the commitments to pro gr es s we 
all wish for on all sides of the 
House and every country in the 
EEC and Commonwealth. 

It must be recognized that I 
may not achieve these changes. 
If the mission does not procure 
tangible and substantial 
progress in South Africa I would 
regard agreement on some fur- 
ther measures as likely to be 
necessary. 

From Opposition speeches he 
took it to-be common ground 
that a policy of general eco- 
nomic sanctions would not be in 
the interests either of the British 
people or South Africa. 

Mr Ne3 Khmork. Leader of the 
Opposition, intervened to say 
that despite an undertaking, 
there had been no answer to the 
question of what would happen 
if the mission did not achieve its 
objectives. 

If it is the case (be said) that 
the absolute conditions of the 
unconditional release of Nelson 
Mandela and the validation of 
tbe ANC does not take place as a 
consequence of his first or 
second meeting with PW Botha, 
what then is he going to do? 

The words he used earlier of 
being prepared to consider fur- 
ther measures will not impress 
the Afrikaans, and least of all the 
rest of the world. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe said it was 
beyond doubt both within the 
Community and in the 
Commonwealth that if the mis- 
sion did not procure substantial 
progres s then consideration 
would be given to further mea- 


Africa, that effective 
would be taken. 

We must get away from this 
confusion as to whether they are 
measures or sanctions (he 
saidLTbe purpose of them all is 
to change the South African 
Government, to its 

situation. 

South Africa believed that 
when it came to the crunch, it 
would always get the support of 
the American administration 
and the British Government. It 
was firmly convinced of this, 
believing it could always use the 
communist threat as tbe argu- 
ment to handle Washington and 
Whitehall 

The irony of this was that tbe 
more South Africa continued 
with its present policy, the more 
it drove the black population 
Into nwiinun irt hanrift- 

It was not true to say that 
sanctions bad no effect on 
Rhodesia. It had taken a very 
long time but it did have the 
effect of bringing Mr Smith to 
negotiate. 

As a result of Mr Smith not 
being p rep ar ed to go so fir, he 
then had an internal crisis, fed 
firm inside. That would happen 
in South Africa. There would be 
the most ghastly bloodshed and 
the Government would be 
swept away. 

It was possible to act on tbe 
banks in South Africa, to agree 
about withdrawal of consular 
representation and to act on the 
airlines. It might be that one 
would have to give notice to 
caned airline arrangements, but 
if this took time it would be 
hanging over South Africa, 
anyway. 

Agriculture was probably a 
good pUce to start. Action on 
industrial goods would be more 
difficult to handle. But these 
things most be done in conjunc- 
tion with the United States, the 
Community and Japan. 

He was worried that Congress 
would use its powers and that 
the President would be forced to 
go alow with it, and Britain 
would find herself isolated un- 
less they were prepared to take 
further action. 

He did not see how full 
sanctions would be possible 
without a blockade because of 





Howe: Further measures 
are not excluded 


the need for enforcement; that 
must be recognized at the start. 

These were measures which 
one was Joth to take, but cme bad 
to balance the pros and cons. 

This was a grave situation 
moving with rapidity. He called 
for unity in the country about 
what to do to deal with the 
situation.

objectives 
described. 

My mission is not an easy one 
(he said) but it is a way that does 
have a chance and with the 
support of this House I shall 
continue to strive for tbe success 
of that mission. 

Dame Judith Hart (Clydesdale, 
Lab) said she was distressed that 
the debate was not devoted to 
consideration of what was likely 
to be foster acting, most effec- 


Mr Alan Beith (Berwick upon

Secretary’s speech bad 
contained so many obeisances 
and deferences to tbe Prime 
Minister. He increasingly gave 
tite impression that he carried 
no authority with him, no more 
authority than a Queen's 
Messenger carrying Foreign 
Office bags from capital to 
capital or the cabin crew 
pouring tbe drinks on the

King defends role of RUC 
in determining routes 


of Protestant marches 


ULSTER 


Operational decisions of tbe 
RUC on the routing of marches 
were entirely a matter for tbe 
Chief Constable of Northern 
Ireland, Mr Tom King, tbe 
Secretary of State for Northern 
Ireland, said in a statement 
about complaints by Mr Peter 
Barry, Foreign Minister of the 
Irish Republic, to Mr King that 
the RUC had allowed loyalist 
marches through Roman Catho- 
lic areas at the weekend. 

Mr King expressed his sup- 
port for the way in which the 
RUC sought to deal even- 
handedly with both commu- 
nities and to protect law-abiding 
people from violence from 
whatever quarter it came. 

He was replying to a private 
notice question from Mr Ian 
Cow (Eastbourne, C), who 
warned that the complaints 
made by Mr Bany were only a 
precursor of- further serious 
disagreement between London 
and Dublin as a result of the 
signing of tbe Anglo-Irish agree- 
ment 

Mr Govt He has quite rightly 
made it dear that responsibility 
for operational matters of tire 
RUC are not a matter for him 
but are a matter for the chief 
constable. Win he make it 
doubly dear that there is no 
respoosbility whatever enjoyed 
by the Foreign Minister of the 
Irish Republic for operational 
matters which foil within the 
resgonsbiiity of the chief con- 

Wiii be remind the Foreign 
Minister of the Irish Republic of 
the provisions of tbe Anglo-Irish 
agreement that the conference 
has no responsibility for opera- 
tional matters? 

Mr King: While there are at this 
time ot year, in tbe marching 
season, great tensions in North- 
ern Ireland, at the same time h is 
the widespread view, held on 
both sides of the community, 
that die violence that took place, 
while regrettable, was very 
much less than it might well 
have been and was predicted to 
be. A lot of that had to do with 
successful and wise policing 
decisions. 

Mr Enoch Pmrefl (South Down, 
OUP): Contrary to tbe state- 
ments of the Government, tbe 
Government of the Irish Repub- . 
lie is under the impression that 
the Anglo-Irish agreement has 
given it a voice in the internal 
administration of a part of the 
United Kingdom. What steps 
does the Government intend to 
take to correct that impression? 
Mr King: The Irish Govern- 
ment has always been concerned 
about issues affecting the 
nationalist community in 
Northern Ireland and has made 
representations over the years 
about different aspects that have 
given rise to concern. I think we 


should recognize that has been 
the practice in tbe pastas welL 
Mr Julian Amoy (Bngntop. 
Pavilion, Cy Has he consKtaed 
the article written by his Min- 
ister of State in which be argues 
the ca y against integration, that 
this would be contrary to the 

Anglo-Irish agreement? Could 

there be a clearer admission that 
we have surrendered an element 
of sovereignty to tbe Republic 
andean he be surprised that the 

Irish Foreign Minister has taken 
the action that be has? 

Mr King: I note his comments. 
It is the Government’s policy to 
to pursue an agreed basts 
for devolved government in 
Northern Ireland- M ^ 

Mir Patrick Duffy (Sheffield, 
Attercliffe, Lab): When provoc- 
ative Orange marches are prop- 
erty routed and when nationalist 
and Catholic homes are prop- 
erty protected against murder- 
ous thugs, then there will be no 
need for Mr Peter Barry to make 
the representations he has made 
nor in the manner he marie 
them. . . 

Mr King: There are difficulties, 
particularly ax the time of the 
marching season and particu- 
larly at the tim e of tbe twelfth. I 
hope be will accept front me my 
confidence that everything pos- 
sible was done and will be done 
to protect law-abiding citizens 
on both sides of tbe community

of the kind we have seen. 
Certainly we shall be deter- 
mined to see every effort to 
bring those responsible to jus- 
tice.

Mr Tam DalyeD (Linlithgow, 
Lab) asked if there had been any 
consultation by Mr Bany before 
the statement had-been made:

Mr Michael Meadowcroft

misconceived and counter- 
productive. Tbe House should 
support the RUC in potidngtiie 
Anglo-Irish agreement. 

Mr King said it was not 
question of policing the agree- 
ment, but the preservation of 
law and older and tbe repudi- 
ation of violence from whatever 
quarter. The RUC was totally 
committed to that policy. 

Mr Stuart Bell, an Opposition 
spokesman on Northern Ire- 
land, said the agreement had 

provided a consultative frame- 
work whereby the Irish Govern- 
ment could - make 
representations to die United 
Kingdom Government on be-

Government keeping open 
mind on bus division 


BRITISH LEYLAND 


The Government was keeping 
an open mind about tbe possible 
privatization of British Ley land. 
Bus and was anxious that the 
situation should be resolved as 
soon as possible, Mr Peter 
Morrison, Minister of State for 
Trade and Industry, said in tbe 
Commons. 

During question lime ex- 
changes, he gave an assurance 


that officials ui his department 
were not being unduly pressed 
by the Laird Group chin exec- 
utive over tbe future of Ley land 
Bus. 

Mr Dale Campbell-Savoars 
(Workington, Lab) asked him to 
reject the proposition that the 
department officials were 
manoeuvring the bids for Ley- 
land Bus in favour of Lairds. 

Mr Morrison said he hoped that 
Mr Campbell-Savours had suf- 
ficiem respect for him and for 


die Secretary of State for Trade 
and Industry (Mr Paul 
Chan non) to realize that they 
were men who made up their 
own minds. 

Mr John Taylor (Solihull, Lab) 
had earlier asked about the 
implications for securing early 
privatization of Land-Rover of 
its £50 million contract to 
supply tbe Australian Army 
with military vehicles. 

Mr Morrison: Hie Government 
is delighted that Land-Rover 
has won this contract Plans for 
the future remain as outlined on 
April 24. 

Mr Taylor said that after a 
period of consolidation, the 
prospect would be there for 
privatization by offer to British 
shareholders. 

Mr Stanley Thorne (Preston, 
Lab): Is he able to say what the 
present position is over British 
Leyland Bus? 

Mr Morrison: No, I am not. Tbe 
matter is being looked at by the 
RoverGroup and we have yet to 


receive a recommendation. 

Mr John Evans, an Opposition 
spokesman on employment: ft 
would be more intelligent to 
allow British Leyland to get on 
with its work and stop talking of ; 
privatization and allow the 
company to concentrate on 
being a very good British com- 
pany doing wonders for the 
British workforce and British 
industry. 

Mr Morrison: He would take 
that point of view. He would 
have taken it about Jaguar when 
it was returned to the private 
sector yet they have done

10-year jail sentence for riot 


PUBLIC ORDER 


The Government has decided, 
in the light of a recent judgment 
in the court of appeal and views 
expressed in Parliament, that 10 
years imprisonment and not a 
life sentence, as proposed in tbe 
Public Order Bill, should be the 
maximum sentence for riot. 
Lord Clenarthnr. Under Sec- 


retary of State. Home Office, 
announced in the House of 
Lords. 

He accepted, during the 
committee stage of the Bill, an 
amendment by Lord Efwyn- 
Jones to make the maximum 
sentence not more than 10 
years. 

Lord Bwyn-Jooes, a former 
Lord Chancellor, said riot was 
not so serious an offence that it 
should attract a penalty of life 
imprisonment. This was re- 


served as a penalty for the 
gravest offences - for murder ot 
for the most serious offences 
against person or property. 

Lord Renton (C) said that in 
view of some of the ugly riots in 
recent years there would be 
occasional case where 
imprisonment might 
anorooriate. 

Lady Madeod of Borre (Q said 
it was unfair to inhibit the right 
of judges in their sentencing.

Court ban on MI5 memoirs 
‘threat to freedom of press’ 


Important issues concern- 
ing the freedom of the press 
were raised by the ban im- 
posed on The Guardian and 
The Observer newspapers on 
publishing any information 
received from Mr Peter 
Wright the former MI5 man. 

The anxiety of the newspa- 
pers was that it would set a 
precedent. Mr Anthony Les- 
ter. QC, counsel for the news- 
papers, told the Court of 
Appeal yesterday. 

! If the Government could 
succeed in suppressing infor- 
mation in the circumstances 
of the present case, it could do 
so in other cases, “no matter 
how great the iniquity about 
the workings of government 
which it were sought to cover 
up. whether a Watergate or a 
Chernobyl”. 

■ In the High Court on Fri- 
day. Mr Justice Millett, in 
imposing the ban. said that the 
security service, “must be seen 
to be leak proof’. 

He granted the Attorney 


both newspapers, restraining 
them from disclosing or pub- 
lishing any information ob- 
tained by Mr Wright while he 
was a member of the security 
service, or which they know or 
believe to have come from 
him, whether directly or 
indirectly. 

They were restrained from 
attributing any information 
concerning the security ser- 
vice to tom unless it had 
already appeared in published 
works or on television. 


They were also free to report 
Australian court proceedings 
being brought by the British 
Government against Mr 
Wright which begin in No- 
vember, and which seek to 
prevent ihe publication of his 
memoirs. 


Mr Wright moved to Aus- 
tralia after retiring from the 
security service 10 years ago. 
His planned memoirs are said 
by the Government to contain 
“highly classified infor- 
mation” nf the “hiehpa 


Mr Lester said that the 
appeals raised “important is- 
sues of general importance 
about the right to freedom of 
expression, and the circum- 
stances and manner in which 
free expression may be re- 
strained in this democratic 
sociery for the necessary pro- 
tection of the confidentiality 
of information and the protec- 
tion of the interests of national 
security”. 

He claimed that the judge 
departed from recognized 
principles, treating the case as 
if it concerned private parties 
and purely private rights and 
interests. 

He said that if the judge 
were right, and that was the 
true state of English law, “it 
would be a novel and severe 
abridgement of the constitu- 
tional right to freedom of 
expression”.

Rockingham in the eighteenth 
century to depict the mytho-

as “The Judgement of Paris’*

It appears that he intends to 
reconstruct the grouping. He 
bought three of the pieces at 
Tuesday’s sculpture sale and 
yesterday added the crucial 
figure of Paris himself, which 
was included in a sale of 
antiquities. The figure, part

Paris, a shepherd boy, was 
given the responsibility of 
passing an apple to the most

Gatwick flight 

delays to rise 


as terminal 
is postponed 


By Michael Bafly, 

TJ® J opening of the much- 
needed second terminal at 
Gatwick airport, Britain's sec- 
ond-busiest, has been post- 
poned until 1988 because of 
spending.cuts. 

The £200 million north ter- 
minal had been due to open 
next spring. 

Passengers already faring 
severe congestion, particularly 
on Fridays and Saturdays, 
with long queues at morning 
and evening peak hours from 
June to September, may have 
still longer waits, and flights 
may have to be diverted to 
Stansted. Gatwick is London's 
fastest growing airport and is 
expected to take another two 
million passengers a year be- 
fore the new terminal opens. 

Passengers last year, at 
15.4 million, were a million 
upon 1984. 

The north terminal was 
intended to increase capacity 
by nine million to 25 million 
passengers a year. 

However spending on it 
coincided with the start of 
work on a new terminal at 
Stansted. costing £295 mil- 
lion; and. at Heathrow Air- 
port work costing £90 million 
on terminal three; and com- 
pletion of the £200 million 
terminal four.

The authority which is to be 
sold off for about £500 million 
under the Government's pri- 
vatization programme next 
year, added: “We can just 
about squeeze another million 
through the existing terminal, 
with increasing discomfort to 
passengers, but beyond that it 
looks as if passengers and 
flights will simply have to be 
turned away." 

• Air UK, Stansted airport's 
chief scheduled airline, is to 
introduce six new routes from 
the airport in the next four 
years, adding flights to desti- 
nations in West Germany, 
Switzerland. Italy and Den- 
mark to the present services to 
Amsterdam, Paris and 
Brussels. 

The airline, which was 
formed in 1980 as part of the 
British and Commonwealth 
Shipping Company, uses other 
British airports, but expects to 
be carrying a quarter of a 
million passengers a year from 
Stansted by 1 990. At present it 
has a fleet of 20 aircraft The 
airline hopes to run twice- 
daily flights to Frankfurt, and 
one flight a day to Dusseldorf.

Public favours housing 
in the South, poll says 

By Christopher Warman, Property Correspondent 


Criticism of new housing 
development in the South-east 
by the main political parties, 
was not a potential vote 
winner, according to a MORI 
opinion poll published yester- 
day. 

The survey indicates that 
the two issues of development 
of land for new housing and 
conservation, are not concerns 
of the voting public 

Only 1 1 per cent of respon- 
dents cited conservation of the 
countryside as an -issue which 
might afreet their voting hab- 
its at a general election. 

The poll, for the House- 
Builders Federation, showed 
that 87 per cent of respondents 
in the South-east believed that 
Britain needed more houses. 
A majority of the 1, 100 people 
asked said they were in favour 
of new housebuilding in their 
area — 55 per cent compared 
with 22 per cent against 


Where new housebuilding 
had already taken place, 44 
per cent regarded it as fairly, 
or very beneficial to their area, 
while 41 per cent thought it 
had had no effect or had no 
opinion. Only 15 per cent 
believed it had a detrimental 
effect. 

However, 83 per cent of the 
respondents said they valued 
the Green Belt- 

Mr Roger Humber, director 
of the House-Builders Federa- 
tion, said: “Politicians, listen- 
ing to the siren voices of the 
conservationists, have per- 
ceived attacks on new housing 
developments to be election 
winners and have been green- 
ing their policies. Bui this 
survey shows that they have 
been wasting their time. 

“People want more new 
houses in the South-east and 
they want a decent 
environment"

were buried too shallow and

tional identity cards appears 
to have waned because crowds 
at League grounds in the past 
year have behaved better, with 
arrests down by 50 per cent. 

However the Prime Minis- 
ter emphasized the need for 
vigilance iftfce improvement is 
to be maintained, after a one- 
and-a-q uarter-hour meeting at 
Downing Street yesterday with 
ministers and footbal^ 
officials. 

Mr Ted Croker. secretary of 
the Football Association, said 
that further pressure would be 
pot on dabs to extend their 
membership card scheme, but 
added: “The Prime Minister 
did not put unreasonable pres- 
sure on qs because of what 
happened last season. 4 * The 
League's dobs have fiercely 
opposed a national scheme 
because it would eliminate 
casual supporters and so 
greatly reduce attendances. 

The Prime Minister had 
originally proposed a scheme 
of identity cards for spectators 
after crowd trouble last year at 
Birmingham, Luton and Chel- 
sea, and last May's European 
Cup Final disaster in Brussels 
where 39 supporters died. 

Mis Thatcher yesterday de- 
scribed the fans at the World 
Cop in Mexico as “superb". 



Services 
slow for

By Thomson Prentice 
Science Corresponds 


Progress in providing belter 
services for mentally handi- 
capped people in Britain has 
been “disappointingly slow", 
partly through a lack of politi- 
cal will according 10 a report 
published yesterday. 

The number of people in 
National Health Service men- 
tal handicap hospitals has 
(alien by a third in the past 15 
years, with an 80 per cent 
drop in the number of chil- 
dren in such units. 


But the report said that a 
further 50 per cent of all 
patients could leave hospital 
and live lit more suitable 
homes or hostels if more 
resources were available. 

The report, by Mencap, the 
Royal Society for Menially 
Handicapped Children and 
Adults and the Office of 
Health Economics, coincides 
with the charity's fortieth 
anniversary and Queen Eliza- 
beth the Queen Mother's

Rethink in Commonwealth as US shifts on sanctions 


THF TIMES THURSDAY JULY 17 1986. 


OVfckSEAS N£WS 


Senate pressure forces 
Reagan to modify 
his policy on Pretoria 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 

President Reagan is set to 
""■ :i modifications to his 


linveil uiuuixkumuii9 p 
battered “constructive en- 
gagement” policy towards 
South Africa, perhaps in about 
a week, in an attempt to 
placate a rapidly hardening 
mood in the Senate in favour 
of tough economic sanctions. 

The Administration is pri- 
vately urging leading senators 
to delay any sanctions vote at 
least until October to give 
lime to co-ordinate the new 
policy direction with Britain 
and other West European 
nations. 

Tactics will be discussed in 
talks at the Slate Department 
today between Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, the Foreign Secretary, 
and Mr George Shultz, the US 
Secretary of State. 

The reluctant policy reas- 
sessment seems to be the 
direct result of warnings by 
senior congressmen that a 
substantial majority of sena- 
tors now favour across-the- 
board punitive measures. A 
stiff sanctions Bill is . being 
considered in the Senate. 

The review is based on the 
central premise that the US 
should continue close involve- 
ment with South Africa in an 
attempt to persuade it to 
negotiate with the black 
majority. 

In an important departure 

Buthelezi 

backs 

Thatcher 

By Sheila Gunn 
Political Staff 

Strong backing for Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher's stand 
against full sanctions came 
from Chief Buthelezi, leader 
of 1.3 million South African 
. blacks, when he pleaded with 

the West to do nothing rather 

than give in to pressure for 
more.acdon against Pretoria. 


from present policy, the Ad- 
ministration may raise the 
possibility of future sanctions 
if Pretoria refuses to begin 
serious talks. 

A tentative Administration 
plan to name a black business- 
man as the next ambassador 
to Pretoria is seen here as a 
gesture to buy lime while 
policy options are examined. 

Administration officials say 
they are conducting a “com- 
prehensive review” of those 
options, but the review will be 
narrow because of President 
Reagan's staunch opposition 
to tough economic and diplo- 


agenda is already seriously 

overcrowded in the_ run-up to 

the November elections. 

The revised policy may be 
announced formally in a 
speech by President Reagan or 
it may be allowed to unfold 
when Mr Shultz testifies be- 
fore the Senate foreign rela- 
tions committee next Wed- 
nesday. . . . . . 

The Administration headed 
off demands for tough sanc- 
tions last year by imposing 
limited measures itselt, in- 
cluding restrictions on the 
export of certain computers to 
South Africa. 

But the pressure is once 


malic sanctions. ~ -~y 

Senator Richard Lugar, more bade. The Democrat- 
chairman of the Senate foreign controlled House ofReprescn- 
miatmnc committee, said a tatives has already approval

relations 

targe majority of the Senate 
wanted to “cast a vote to 
indicate their unhappiness" 
with Administration policy. 

Similar warnings were ech- 
oed yesterday by other senior 
Republicans. 

Pro-sanctions senators are 
convinced that they have 
enough votes to overcome a 
filibuster on the floor by 
opponents of sanctions. 

But the chances that a 
sanctions Bill will become law 
are still remote. There are 
probably not enough votes to 
overcome a presidential veto. 
In any case, the legislative 


legislation for a total trade 
embargo and to force Ameri- 
can companies to withdraw 
their investments. 

A similar BUI has been 
sponsored in the Senate by 
Senator Edward Kennedy, a 
Democrat from Massachu- 
setts, and Senator Lowell 
Weieker, a Republican from 
Connecticut . 

Administration officials say 
they are determined to pre- 
vent Congress laying down 
policy towards South Africa. 
But they acknowledge that an 
anti-apartheid package could 
pass the Senate soon.

Malaysia decides

Mugabe 
warns 
against 
break-up 

From Jan Raath 

Harare 

Mr Robert Mugabe, the 
Prime Minister of Zimbabwe, 
has cautioned members of the 
Commonwealth against leav- 
ing the group in reprisal for 
Britain's refusal to impose 
comprehensive _ sanctions 
against Sooth Africa. _ 
Speaking yesterday m die 
House of Assembly, Mr 
Mugabe said: “Good as it 
migfet be for us to demonstrate 
that the best way of indicating 
our dissa tisfaction with Brit- 
ain is to quit the Common- 
wealth, that might also have 
its own effects." 

He asked: “If the Common- 
wealth were to disintegrate 
today, would that add weight 
to the pressures against South 
Africa, or would it diminish 
those pressures?" 

His statement followed re- 
peated threats by President 
Kannda of Zambia, the chair- 
man of the southern African 
front-line states, to withdraw 
his country from the Common- 
wealth if Britain m a int a i ned 
its refusal to impose sanctions. 

Early next month. President 
Kannda sits as chairman of tbe 
seven-person Commonwealth 
Committee to examine the 
report of the Eminent Persons’ 
Group, which in June conclud- 
ed that Pretoria showed no 
signs of beginning dialogue to 
dismantle apartheid. 

“Tbe views of quite a num- 
ber who have spoken to ns is 
that, if the Commonwealth 
were to go. Sooth Africa would 
be happy. But it (South A frica) 
is not (happy), and that source 
of pressure ... will have 
vanished," Mr Mugabe said. 

The Zimbabwean leader 
said the front-Une states need- 
ed to “sit down and examine 
the issue" at its summit here 

tomorrow. 

The dropping from the Brit- 
ish Commonwealth Games 
imiw of Zola Bndd and An- 
nette Cowley had “settled one 
issue", but there still remained 
Britain's “intransigence” over 
sanctions against Sonth 
Africa. 

He said Zimbabwe was still 
studying its position regarding 
its participation in the Games. 

He said he was also aware that 
India and the Caribbean states 

were awaiting the front-line 
slates' decision on the Games, 
which he hoped would be 
reached tomorrow.

Refugee 

fight at 

German 
centre 

Bonn - Lebanese and Gha- 
naians, who are among the 
flood of refugees who have 
been pouring into West Ger- 
many via East Berlin in the 
last few weeks, brawled early 
yesterday in a refugee centre av 

lngelbeim in the Rhineland 
(Frank Johnson writes). 

At least three people were 
seriously injured when about 
100 refugees fought with 
knives and iron bars. 

The clash followed the 
death on Tuesday of a Ghana- 
ian man, aged 28, who was 
injured in a fight on Saturday 
between Ghanaians and Paki- 
stanis at another refugee cen- 
tre at Deggendorf in Bavaria. 

11 jailed for 
massacre 

Ayacucho, Peru (Reuter) — 
A court here has sentenced 1 1 
police officers to between 10 
and 25 years' imprisonment 
foT killing 32 Indian peasants 
in a massacre on municipal 
election day in November 
1983. , L .. 

The ruling marked the first 
time in Peru's history of 
fighting left-wing insurgents 
that courts have convicted 
police of human rights 
violations. 


It is a truth universally 
acknowledged — at least in 
Lebanon - that security plans 
fail. But perhaps it is still too 
early to claim this fate for 
Syria's latest military initia- 
tive in west Beirut. . 

Yesterday afternoon Syrian 
troops were searching cars on 
the seafront in front of the old 
Em Mreisse mosque with all 
the aplomb of film stars; 
indeed. Lebanese and Syrian 
television crews were filming 
their “peace-keeping" efforts. 

But up the airport road, 
next to the unfinished Shia 
mosque, a thin man with a 
closely cropped beard and 
dressed in ill-fitting Marine 
camouflage fatigues was or- 
dering foreigners to stop at the 
side of the road. Tbe truck 
beside him, surmounted by an 
anti-aircraft gun, bore the 
words Hezbollah (Party of 
God). 

So why were the extremist 
Shia Muslim militia control- 
ling this most important of 
highways when the Lebanese 
Army - supported, of course, 
the Syrians - were sup-

From Robert Fisk, Beirut 

ample, the Hezbollah, object- 
ing to the searches earned out 
by Lebanese troops on the 
road, opened fire on the 
soldiers, wounding two of 
them while sustaining two 
casualties of their own. A few 
hours later, an angry Hez- 
bollah statement accused “cer- 
tain elements" of the Leb- 
anese Army's Sixth Brigade of 
being “in league" with Chris- 
tian army units based near the 
President's Palace at Yarze. 

This was bad news. The 
Syrians had hoped, if some- 
what foriomly, that the 
Hezbollah had accepted their 
“security” plan and would 
leave the Lebanese Army 
alone. _ . _. - 

Brigadier-General Gnazi 
Kenaan, the head of Syrian 
military intelligence in Leba- 
non, has held many talks with 
Sbeikh Mohammad Hassan 
Fadlallah, the spiritual 
(though not actual) leader of 
the Hezbollah. Yesterday 
morning even the Soviet Am- 
bassador paid a call on the 
sheikh.' 

But opposition to the Syri- 
ans is clearly mounting. On 
Tuesday unidentified men 
fired two rocket-propelled gre- 
nades at tbe Beau Rivage 
Hotel in west Beirut where 
General Kenaan has estab- 
lished his headquarters. Then, 
a few hours later, a lieutenant-

to a bank. , ... 

General Kenaan has public- 
ly said that any attack on the 
Lebanese . Army is a blow 
against Syria itself, a warning 
he wishes others to take 
seriously. 

West Beirut is still a far safer 
place than it has been for 
many weeks — and it is the 
Syrians who are responsible 
for this new security - but, 
and it is not diched in Beirut, 
time is running out. 

• Saudi freed: Gunmen yes- 
terday seized and then freed a 
Saudi Arabian man in west

Mubarak had notified them 
that gunmen, who detained 
him Just before noon, had 
freed him after driving him 
around Beirut for 30 minutes. 

“After they asked him sev-

activists. 

The reporter, Mr Julian 
Manyon, says there is direct 
evidence that the Govern- 
ment is encouraging the more 
conservative black groups, 
such as the wiidoekes, in their 
attacks on the radical camps 
which house the comrades. 


A while doctor who works 
in the squatter camps on the 
periphery of Cape Town says 
police vehicles shielded the 
wiidoekes during skirmishes 
in May, playing a vital role m 
ensuring the eventual blway 
confrontation. Such actions, 
the film report says, give the 
lie to Pretoria’s line that the 
problem is violence by Waot 
on black. They are part of the 
Government’s sustained strat- 
egy of “divide and rule”. 

The report states it is the 
Botha Government’s policy to 
force as many refugees as 
possible into “control" camps, 
such as the one established at 
Khyaletsha. some 21 miles 
from Cape Town. The camp is 
fenced oft has no electnci£, 
but is lit up at night by 
floodlights to assist military 
surveillance.

Build-up of 
troops in 
Honduras 
challenged 

From Christopher Thomas 
. Washington 

America's military presence 
in Honduras, consolidated for 
more than three years without 
congressional approval or 
oversight, has emerged as a 
key Democratic weapon to 
discredit President Reagan's 
attempts to destabilize the 
Sandinista Government of 
Nicaragua. 

A military build-up is gath- 
ering pace at a time when 
Congress has again cleared 
the way for the Central Intelli- 
gence Agency to resume direct 
support of the anti-S a nd i nls ta 
Contras, most- of whom are 
based in rough camps in the 
jungles of Hood was along the 
bolder with Nicaragna. 

In years of silent build- 
op in Central America's poor- 
est country, the US has 
established a routine pro- 
gramme of “exercises” that 
constantly keep at least 1,200 
troops in the country on six- 
month tours. 

The State Department, 
stung by criticism of the 
Administration's prominent 
role in Honduras, issued a 
formal statement saying: “The 
US does not have, nor does the 
US plan to establish, a perma- 
nent military presence in 
Honduras."

machine Is the Paimerola air 
base, a sprawling complex of 
teats and wooden huts wedged 
between mountain ranges. 

Nearly three years ago when 
I went there, plans were 
already under way to extend 
the runway to 8,000 Jt, capable 
of handling virtually any cargo 
or fighter plane. That project 
has been completed without 
congressional approraL 

The US also has an airstrip 


at Gofosdn on the north coast, 
built at a cost of $8 million 
(£5.36 milli on) and capable of 
handling most military planes. 
In total, nine combat airfields 
have been built or improved as 
part of President Reagan's 
camp aig n to intimidate Nic- 
aragua. 

There are now two radar 
stations; many new and im- 
proved strategically situated 


areas); a network of tank 
traps; one, perhaps two, air 
intellige&ce installations for 
spying on Nicaragua; hosts of 
new and strengthened bridges; 
and a range of other US- 
provfoaT fedlities-dusigpedjto 
maintain an indefinite military 
presence. 

Much more is planned. The 
pentagon has a $30 mOIioa 
five-year construction pro- 


proved strategically situated five-year construction pro- 
roads (particularly in bonier gramme that includes die SI. 6 


million facility for a pilotless 
drone used in aerial intelli- 
gence gathering, and $5 mil- 
lion for improving housing and 
work areas at Paimerola, to- 
gether with another $22 mil- 
lion for extensive overall 
upgrading of tile base. 

The US military facilities in 
Honduras are generally re- 
garded as far from adequate 
for an all-out attack on Nica- 
ragua- Ports and airfields, 
even with the improvements, 
could handle only small num- 
bers of ships and planes 
simultaneously. 

But senior Democrats be- 
lieve the build-up could eves - 1 
fatl y ensnare the US in a ! 
direct Military confrontation 
with Nicaragua. They are 
determined to challenge the 
Adminis tration to justify what 
is regarded as a furtive at- 
tempt to raise America's mili- 
tary strength in the region. 

There is considerable un- 
ease about the continual US 
presence among Honduran 
Army officers and politicians 
who feel the country's sover- 
eignty a nd dignity are being 
affronted. 

However, mneh-needed 
American aid sweetens the 
piliniut the Honduran military 
has benefited greatly. Since 
1981, it has received direct aid 
of $288 million and another 
$188 million has been pro- 
posed by the Administration in 

1987. 

__ Ho nduras's— main fear is 
’ rtmt a future Administration 
will disengage abruptly from 
the country, leaving it to deal 
with the disintegrating Contra 
force of perhaps 20,000 men, 
plus their families.

He was welcoming Mr Mu- 
hammad Khan Junejo, Pakis- 
tan's Prune Minister, at a 
military ceremony on the 
While House lawn. He said 
that the United Slates deeply 
admired Pakistan’s “steadfast- 
ness and braveiy" in its 
“noble stand". 

The world should note that 
in pursuit of its “neo-colonial 
war or aggression against Af- 
ghanistan, the Soviets have 
repeatedly violated Pakistan's 
sovereignly", he said. 

Mr Junejo . arrived here 
yesterday evening on a three- 
day visit wbicb, according to a 
senior American official, 
marks strong Administration 
approval of Pakistan’s recent 
transition from military to 
civilian rule. 

His talks with. President 
Reagan and Mr George 
Shultz, the Secretary of State,

Crash housing 
programme 

for Chernobyl 


Death sentence for Haiti police chief 


evacuees 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 

Soviet authorities are tin- area dose to the 
denaking a crash programme 
..'JiD provide housing by the 
'winter for every family of the 
100,000 people evacuated 
from their homes in the 18- 
mile exclusion zone around 
the crippled Chernobyl nu- 
clear reactor. 

Four thousand homes are 
being built in the Gome! 
region of Byelorussia and a 
further 7,250 in Ukraine. 

They will be followed by a 
second stage of construction 
to include new schools, laun- 
dries, hospitals, kindergartens. 


evacuees’ 

original homes had been one 
reason for the relocation. 

Another was a medical deci- 
sion that it would be better for 
the evacuees to be resettled 
away horn areas of high 
“background radiation" be- 
cause they had already “un- 
dergone the influence of 
radiation" before evacuaiion. 

Asked how the evacuees 
had reacted to the change of 
site, the official said: “I cannot 
say that everybody was happy. 
They wanted to return close to 
their region, but wc honestly 


canteens, social clubs, post explained everything to them, 
offices and other amenities for " The families had received 
the evacuees. “big money 

No official figure has been 








provided for the cost of the 
programme, which in Byelo- 
russia alone is involving 3,000 
.‘^people working round the 
'^dock in two shins, but unoffi- 
cial estimates put the total in 
tens of millions of roubles. 

Western diplomatic sources 
yesterday described the new 
details of the resettlement 
programme as confirmation 
of speculation that it may be 
years, even decades, before 
many of the evacuees can 
return to their former homes. 

The authorities have been 
reluctant u> spell out how long 
the exclusion zone will have to 
remain empty for fear of 
causing ill-feeling among the 
evacuees, many of whom were 
farm workers reluctant to 
leave their land despite the 
radiation risks. 

In the Lithuanian capital of 
Vilnius, one Soviet source told 
Ifcne that evacuees recently re- 
housed there were expected 
never to leave. 

The government newspaper 
Izvestia reported this week 
fh>m Gomel that many of the 
evacuees in Byelorussia had 
been angered when they dis- 
covered housing settlements 
were being built a long way 
from their former homes, 
rather than close to them as 
originally planned. 

A senior Soviet construc- 
tion official told the paper that

abandon. 

Meanwhile, the man who 
has become the best known 
face on Soviet television, Mr 
Alexander Krutov, has been 
given a special award by the 
Soviet Union of Journalists 
for his reports on the after- 
math of the disaster, which set 
a new standard in the state- 
controlled media. 

Mr Krutov and his camera- 
man, Mr Yevgeny Sh ma- 
in kov, who received a similar 
award, were in the disaster 
region for about a month. 


Port-au-Prince (Reuter, AP) 

- Haiti’s former Security 
Police chief under the dicta- 
tors Francois and Jean-Claode 
Duvalier was found gnflty of 
murder and torture yesterday 
and sentenced to death. 

The sentence was an- 
nounced at the end of an 18- 
hour trial at the Palace of 
Justice that was broadcast live 
on television. 

The 12-man jury found Luc 
Desyr, aged 61, the former 
Security Police chH guilty 
without extenuating circum- 
stances of illegal arrest, 
jailing, torture and murder. 

The court immediately sen- 
tenced Desyr to death. Exer- 
tion in Haiti is generally by 
shooting. 

Desyr maintained his inno- 
cence and declared: “I am a 
Christian; I am a convinced 
Baptist." Mr Leon Dupiton, 
his lawyer, said he wonid 
appeal against the sentence. 

The court beard that during 
the 28 years they ruled Haiti, 
the Dnvaliers used the secret 
police to torture and intimidate 
opponents. 

Francois Duvalier died in 
1971 ami his son, Jean- 
Claude, fled from Haiti in 
February of this year and is 
now in exile in France. 

Daring the trial, Desyr de- 
nied ever having seen the 
person who accused him of 
torture and murder. 

“1 don’t know this man," he 
said of Mr Emmanuel Am- 
broise, aged 74, an education 
minister in pre- Duvalier Haiti. 
“1 maintain my innocence." 

Three other former leaders 
of the Dnvatier-era secret 
police, known as the Tontons 
Macoute, are accused of the

same crimes and are being

Mr Ambroise testified that

27 years ago, and tortured him 
in a small room in the Nation- 
al Palace. 

He also accused Desyr of 
murdering his brother, Jean- 


Jacques Dessa lines Ambroise, 
and his brother’s pregnant 
wife. 

“I thought they were sadis- 
tic npimab fulfilling their 
instincts," Mr Ambroise, the 
only witness to take the stand 
on Tuesday, said of the secret 
police. 


In his testimony, Mr 
Ambroise estimated that more 
than 60,000 Haitians were 
killed daring the 28-year Du-

Washington (Reuter) - The 
crew of a Della Airlines air- 
craft. airline authorities and 
the weather have been blamed 
for a crash at Dallas last year, 
in which 136 people died. 

The National Transporta- 
tion Safety Board said the 
probable causes of the acci- 
dent on August 2 were the 
crew's decision 10 fly into a 
storm cloud, its inadequate 
training on how to avoid and 
escape from wind shear, and 
the lack of information on 
dangerous weather ahead. 

The 1 1-month investigation 
found evidence that the Delta 
Lockheed L 1011 crashed be- 
cause it flew into a rapidly 
developing thunderstorm and 
encountered powerful wind 
shear — a strong burst of wind 
that suddenly changes direc- 
tion — which caused it to 
rapidly lose air speed. 

Mr Hollis Harris, the senior 
vice-president of Delta Air- 
lines. said he was “shocked 
and dismayed at the board s 
misunderstanding and misin- 
terpretation of the facts . He 
said the company had com- 
plied with all requirements set 
down for training on handling 
wind shear. 

Capiain Richard Stone, a 
Delta pilot who headed a 
union investigation into the 
crash, said the crew had no 
reason to suspect it was flying 
into wind shear. 


Little hope 
for trapped 
Australian 
coalminers 


From Stephen Taylor 
Sydney 

Twelve miners were feared 
dead in an explosion almost a 
mile down a Queensland coal 
mine yesterday. . . . . 

Eigto hours after the blast 
there was still uncertainty 
about the location of the trap- 
ped men, but the presence of 
poisonous femes left little 
chance or survival. 

Rescue workers were said to 
hare reached within 100 yards 
of the blast area, but were 
driven back by poisonous 
fumes and the danger of fur- 
ther explosions. 

It was the woist Australian 
mining accident in more than a 
decade. The last disaster, 
which claimed 13 lives, oc- 
curred in the same small coal 
m inin g community. Mourn in 
central Queensland. 

Officials said the explosion 
appeared to have been caused 
by methane gas, but there was 
no explanation of how it had 
ignited. 

Danger from femes last 
night caused authorities to 
declare a disaster area within 
a three-mile radius of the 
mine. 

Hopes for the men rested on 
an attempt to sink a new shaft 
overnight, but officials said 
even if there had been survi- 
vors they wonid have run out of 
air before they could be reach- 
ed. 


providing almost nightly re- 
ports which included inier- 


, ...lich included 

views with rescue workers and 
footage shot over the wrecked 
plant. 

Reporting the award, the 
official newspaper Soviet- 
skava Kultura said it had been 
made in recognition of work 
undertaken in dangerous con- 
ditions. It explained that Mr 
Krutov, who is normally 
based in Moscow, had refused 
to wear protective clothing. 

“What kind of emotions 
would have been aroused 
among television viewers ii 
they had seen the correspon- 
dent dressed in protective 
clothing with breathing appar- 
atus?" It asked. 

No details were given of 
whether the reporter had suf- 1 
fered any ill-effects. 


India’s border row 




Delhi (Reuter) — A row has 
broken out between India ana 
China over their bolder only 
days before the two countries 
are to resume tortuous negoti- 
ations on a 24-year-old fron- 
tier dispute. 

Delhi said on Tuesday that 
Chinese troops and herdsmen 
had intruded into Jfoaia s 
north-east Amnacbal Pradesh 
state. Peking yesterday reject- 
ed the charges, saying the area 
was Chinese, and issued a 

counter-accusation that Indi- 
an troops regularly made in- 
cursions into China. . 

} An Indian External Afters 

Ministry official said about 40 
Chinese - “some of them in 
uniforms" - in June had gone 
five miles inside Indian terri- 
tory in the Sumdorong enu 

“We had protested strongly 
about this intrusion to the 
Chinese Government and re- 
jected their contention , that 
lhis area is on their side of the 
frontier " the official said. 

The world’s two most popu- 
lous nations are due to meet 


on July 21 in Peking for their 
seventh session since 1981 to 
discuss the dispute which led 
to war between them in 1962. 
“I am not so dumb as to 

expect a breakthrough,” the 

official said when asked n 
India expected any important 
gains at the talks. 


w Issue at talks: The Indian 
team, which leaves for reking 
later this week for the talks on

THE TIMES THURSDAY JULY 17 1986 


Spain’s Socialists seem 
set for long future 
after Opposition split 


From Richard Wigg, Madrid 


Spain's small Christian 
Democrat Party yesterday 
launched itself on a hazardous 
road by breaking with the 
right-wing Opposition as King 
Juan Carlos began formal 
consultations with party lead- 
ers to form the new govern- 
ment. 

The King's consultations, 
required under the Constitu- 
tion. will obviously end with 
him calling again on Senor 
Felipe Gonzalez, the Socialist 
leader, to be Prime Minister. 
The Socialists won 1 84 seats at 
last month's general election 
while the Opposition, led by 
Senor Manuel Fraga, obtained 
only 105 seats. 

The deeper significance of 
the split in the opposition 
parties is that it contributes to 
a growing sensation that 
Spam's Socialists are set to 
enjoy power for a long time to 
come. Ya, the Roman Catho- 
lic daily newspaper, yesterday 
warned that, if opposition 
divisions continue, “any pos- 
sibility of winning future elec- 
tions will disappear". 

Senor Oscar Alzaga, the 


Christian Democrat leader, 
distancing himself from the 
veteran opposition leader be- 
cause of the poor election 
results, has now taken his 21- 
member group to sit conspicu- 
ously in the centre of die 
Lower House. This leaves 
Senor Fraga with the rump of 
the Opposition well to the 
right in the Chamber. 

The move by Senor Alzaga 
was made to improve the 
party's image, but trouble has 
quickly beset his little group. 


A deputy chairman of the 


-pgrty and former Cabinet 
mimster.fcgs resigned his post 
amid rumblings divisions . 
within the new Torm^tion. 
Many MB well know that- 
they owe their seats to the 
electoral pull of Senor Fraga. 

Senor Fraga, now commu- 
nicating with the Christian 
Democrat leader only by let- 
ter, has confined himself so far 
to expressing publicly “pro- 
found disgust” over the split 

The repercussions of the 
Christian Democrats' decision 
have been quick in two auton- 
omous regions of northern 


Spain. In Castile- Leon four 
Christian Democrat members 
of the local parliament have 
defected to Senor Fraga’s par- 
ty. and in Cantabria, where 
the coalition forms the region- 
al government ministers of 
the now rival parties are 
feuding and disciplinary pro- 
ceedings have been started 
against local Christian Demo- 
crat figures. 

One consequence of the 
Christian Democrats' move to 
die centre of Parliament with- 
out having gained recognition 
as an independent parliamen- 
tary group, is that the 21 will 
be sitting among those repre- 
senting various regional par- 
ties with one MP apiece. 

How they will divide the 
lime for parliamentary debate 
between them is one of the 
problems Senor Felix Pons, 
the new Speaker and a 43- 
year-old Socialist from Major- 
ca, will have to listen to very 
sympathetically if the new 
Parliament is to prove more 
lively and interesting than the 
old. 


Spaniards 
see Franco 


rise again 


From Richard Wigg 
Madrid 


Franco is again plotting the 
July 1936 uprising against the 
Republic in Spain — this time 
on the screens of two Madrid 


cinemas. 

The film Dragon Rapide — 
which opened last Thursday 
night eight days before the 
50th anniversary of the begin- 
ning of the Spanish Civil War, 
which was provoked by a 
military uprising — shows the 
Spanish dictator in fictional- 
ized form for the first time 
since his death in November 
1975. 

The film concentrates on 
Franco's activities immediate- 
ly before July 18 1936. 

Its title was provided by the 
tiny De Haviiiand biplane that 
flew from the old Croydon 
airport and picked up General 
Franco in the Canaries and 
then took him secretly to 
Spanish Morocco to take 
charge of the rebellious forces. 

The part of Franco is played 
by Juan Diego, aged 43, who 
once belonged to- the Spanish 
Communist Party when Fran- 
co was alive. 

Diego was made famous for 
his role in the film based on 
the novel by Miguel Delibes, 
The Holy Innocent, which 
depicted harsh rural life under 
the Franco dictatorship. That 
film has already screened in 
London. 

The director of Dragon 
Rapide , Jaime Camino, who 
originally made the film for 
Spanish television, is clearly 
seen to be supporting the 
Republican side. 

The fictionalized biography 
has scenes likely to surprise 
Spaniards, showing the dicta- 
tor. for instance, in bed with 
his wife. Carmen. To emphas- 
ize “the other Spain", the film 
depicts Casals, the famous 
Catalan cellist, who never 
returned to Spain after 
Franco’s victory, rehearsing 
with an orchestra for a sym- 
phony concert. 


East African 
states share 
out the assets 


From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 


The Presidents of Kenya, 
Tanzania and Uganda have 
approved the final accounts of 
the East African Community, 
which collapsed in 1977 be- 
cause of disagreements be- 
tween the three partner states. 

They had received reports 
from Dr Viktor Umbricht, a 
World Bank mediator, who 
has spent the past nine years 
untangling the financial legacy 
of the Community. 

Assets valued at about 
£1,000 million included the 
East African railway system, a 
telecommunications network, 
port facilities and an airline. 
There were also debts to the 
World Bank. Britain and other 
donors of £300 million. 

These have now been 
shared out between the three 
states under a formula which 
takes account of the assets 
taken over by each. 

Kenya and Tanzania are 
together paying Uganda about 
£150 million because Uganda 
inherited the smallest share of 
the Community assets. 

One of the last issues setded 
in negotiations between teams 
of experts from the three states 
was the responsibility for the 
pensions of former Communi- 
ty employees, many of them 
Britons. Each state has accept- 
ed responsibility for its share 
of the pensions bill. 

Speaking here yesterday af- 
ter the three Presidents had 
approved the final documents. 
Dr Umbricht said the Com- 
munity was an imaginative 
concept — but it was about a 
century ahead of its lime. The 
member states were not yet 
ready to concede enough of 
their sovereignly to enable the 
Community to operate suc- 
cess full V.

Europe's cinema paradise 


Frenchremain faithful 
to the silver screen 


From Diana Geddes, Paris 


The cinema industry in 
France is alive and well de- 
spite increasing competition 
from television, video-record- 
ers and foreign films. This 
contrasts with its counterparts 
in virtually every other country 
in Europe. 

Admissions to cinemas in 
France have remained more or 
less stable for 25 years, while 
in Britain they have fallen by 
70 per cent, in Italy by 75 per 
cent and in Germany by 30 per 
cent. 

The cinema remains one of 
the favourite leisure activities 
of the French, particularly the 
young. Last year French cine- 
mas recorded 172 million ad- 
missions, half by the 15-24 age 
group, compared with a mere 
70 million in Britain. 

On the officially declared 
fete da cuuma last month, 
when people were able to see 
as many films as they liked for 
the price of one, 1.8 million 
entries were recorded in a 
single day. One in two French 
people goes to the cinema at 
least once a year. Those from 
well-educated, well-off- -fam- 
ilies predominate. 

A main reason for cinema's 
popularity in France is the 
accessibility of cinemas and 
the great variety of films due to 
a policy of dosing or trans- 
forming big cinemas to create 
several small viewing theatres, 
often with just a couple of 
hundred seats. 

While the number of dneraa 
auditoriums has been falling 
sharply in most countries in 
Europe, in France it has 
increased by a fifth in the past 
decade, though the number of 
places fell. There are more 
than 5,000 cinemas in Fiance, 
four times as many as in 
Britain. 

In Paris alone, there are 
more than 500 cinemas. Near- 
ly 200 films are on offer this 
week —old and new, dabbed or 
in their original version, in a 
huge modem theatre on the 
Champs Elysees or in the 
somewhat rundown intimacy 
of a small Left Bank theatre. 
Shows begin about 2 pm and 
can go on till after midnight 
Seats cost about £2 to £3. 

While the heyday Of the 
French film directors — 
Truffaut, Chabrol, 


Renoir, Resnais, etc — appears 
over, France maintains a lively 
and important cinema film 
production industry, thanks 
largely to substantial govern- 
ment aid, begun in the early 
1960s, which last year totalled 
more than 700 million francs 
(£65 million) in direct and 
indirect grants. 

W'hile Britain and Italy 
have been suffering a slump in 
their cinema industry, French 
production has remained rela- 
tively stable over tfae past 
decade, with an average 160 
fbH-length feature films a year 
as well as 400 to 500 films of 
less than one hour. 

Of the 456 new films shown 
in France last year, two-thirds 
were foreign, including 121 
from the US. French films 
nevertheless managed to hold 
their own, attracting 76 mil- 
lion viewers compared with 67 
million for American films. 
Box office takings totalled 3.8 
billion francs (£355 million). 

While the American Rambo 
//topped tiie cinema populari- 
ty charts in France last year 
.with 55 million entries, two 
French films - Leconte's Les 
Specialises and Serrean’s 
Trob Hommes et an Couffin — 
came a dose second and third 
with 5 2' million and 4.6 mil , 
lion entries respectively. 

According to a recent poll. 

the main reason the French go 
to see a particular film is 
because of the actors (45 per 
cent); only 26 per cent chose a 
film because of its director. 


One of the most important 
forms of aid provided by the 
Government for young, up- 
and-coming French film pro- 
ducers is the “advance on 
receipts'* given before filming 
has begun, on the basis of their 
feasibility and the artistic 
quality of the scenario. Last 
year 55 films were given 80 
million francs in such ad- 
vances. Nearly 1,000 films 
have benefited from the aid 
since 1960. 

Since the right-wing Gov- 
ernment came to power, there 
have been fears about the 
future of State support for the 
fin 111 "*, but assurances seem 
to have been given that the 
cinema budget will by largely 
spared the axe.

There’s a tilt-and-slide 
glass sunroof, tinted glass all

well as central locking. 

In both models you’ll find

the Weekend 100 Super. 

All in all, there’s a lot to 
tempt you, and all of it 
affordable - just £6,997 f for 
the Weekend 85 Comfort, 
£8,590 f for the 100 Super. 

And with your Fiat dealer 
in a generous mood right now, 
there's never been a better 
time to talk to him. 

But even if you decide to 
delay your decision to buy a 
Regata Weekend, don’t worry; 
when you do decide, you’ll still 
find we’re offering the same 
high levels of comfort, equip- 
ment and performance. 

Unlike some.

FRANK BRUNO 




* * ■ 


I I is not just boxing 
correspondents’ hyperbole to 
state that the coming world 
title fight between Tim 
W uherspoon and Frank Bru- 
no is more than a mere boxing 
match Naturally the men around 
Bruno breathe that it is an Event 
the Big One the Ultimate - but 
after just a few hours in their 
company the apparent exaggera- 
tions begin to make sense 
In terms of boxing history, the 
fact is indisputable when Frank 
Bruno steps into the nng at Wem- 
bley early on Sunday morning to 
challenge W itherspoon’s World 
Boxing Association heavyweight 
title it will be the first ume any 
British fighter has had an even 
chance of taking that title 
More interesting to non-boxing 
people is the phenomenon of Bruno 
himself Conventionally be is seen 
in one dimension the big. brainless 
Spilling Image puppet who asks 
“know what I mean 0 ", and slugs his 
way through a barbaric spectacle It 
is a narrow elitist view For just as 
modern boxing is a multi -faceted 
business which involves a range of 
sophisticated selling skills, so Frank 
Bruno should be seen as a man 
whose particular wisdom has been 
to escape the predictable and turn 
himself into a ruthlessly disciplined 
sportsman 

Last week, when Bruno met the 
defending champion for the first 
time the contrast in styles was 
instructive The American was the 
epitome of fast-talking, amusing 
Philadephian. confidence ana

The man who would be king: “The bell goes ding-ding, yon got nobody there except yon , . Jt makes yon a lonely person” (Photograph by Snowdon) 


T o some he seemed tense, it 
would be surprising were 
he not Vet though he 
lacked Witherspoon's re- 
laxed style. Bruno dis- 
played some wit, and his 
performance showed Lawless’s 
careful training. First, appearance 
ahtavs immaculate Second, atti- 
tude to press scrupulously polite 
(At times he looks like a giant 
schoolboy hands clasped behind 
his back answering the 
headmaster’s questions) Third, 
general demeanour safely reserved, 
on the grounds that the less you say, 
the less the cynics can mock you 
Tim Witherspoon shrugged after-, 
wards that his challenger was too 
tense too quiet, the Americans 
wanted hype 

The Bruno-Lawless relationship 
has been likened to that of father 
and son Certainly Lawless has 
groomed Bruno into a man who can 
mix with “celebrities” but still 
protects him from the excesses of 
fame Lawless’s investment has 
been financial as well as profession- 
al and emotional, it was he who paid 
for the crucial visit to Bogota in 
1982 when Bruno needed a special- 
ized eye operation to correct short- 
sightedness. that would enable him 
to turn professional The affecuon 
between the two men is clear to see 
Bruno's real father, whom he 
describes as his “hero" died when 
Bruno was a teenager Years of 
illness fafted to prevent the- loving 
but exasperated man from beating 
his difficult son -with a curtain rod 
when necessary It was often neces- 
sary Bruno’s parents ' bad come 
from the West Indies to Wands- 
worth south London, the family 
(Bruno has three sisters and a 
brother l was close, religious and 
strict Like many children. Bruno 


reacted against bis parents' training, 
and the huge toddler became a burly 
and aggressive boy who spent all his 
time fighting. 

A man who has known Bruno 
some years, and is from an identical 
background, said: “The secret thing 
about Frank is - he likes to p/ease. 
Now he pleases Terry by handling 
himself well and he pleases the 
public Then, the pressure to please 
his mates was greater than his need 
to please his parents. You live your 
life on the streets, your parents 
don't know where you are. and if 
you’re a big guy you get involved m 
punch-ups because that’s what your 
friends expect of you. It’s hard to 
avoid.” 

When Bruno fought with one of 
his own teachers, bis mother 
Lynette. a devout Pentecostalist, 
decided something had to be done 


with her bully of a son, so Bruno 
was sent to Oak Hall, a boarding 


school for delinquent boys. Hurt at 
his mother’s decision, Bruno saw it 
later as evidence of her wisdom. He 
was head boy at Oak Hall, but left 
knowing that a career in sport 
would be the only thing to keep him 
from crime. From the age of nine he 
had been hooked on boxing; now he 
joined an amateur dub in south 
London, and earned a living as a 
labourer 

It seems as if be still has to remind 
himself of the detested building site 
to drive himself on. Even m a brief 
interview he tells you about it “And 
jf ever I look as ifTm forgetting who 
I am and where I come from, people 
around me will tell me I mean I 
only have to remember all that, 
know what l mean 9 ” 

Bruno, said his old acquaintance, 
is interested in money “His style is 
to gel the fight over quickly just so’s 
he can pick up that purse and go 
home" His American sparring 
partner, Rufus “Hurricane” Hadley 
— himself a potential world heavy- 
weight contender — said that Bruno 
shows the classic hunger of count- 
less black youngsters on both sides 
of the Atlantic who became boxers: 


“What makes Bruno tick? He's 
found one thing he can do. He don't 
want to be in poverty. He don't 
want to be low This is the only way 
he can avoid that He works as hard 
as any executive, and the gym is his 
office ” 

The gym is above the Royal Oak 
pub in Canning Town, home of 
Terry Lawless's stable of fighters. 
The atmosphere is that of a large, 
easy-going family where any small 
jealousies are banished before a big 
event that will bring credit to all. 
There was some resentment, on this 
day, that Bruno, who had given 148 
interviews in 35 days during his 
most intense training period, had 
been criticized by the press for being 
uneo-operative. Lawless is keen to 
protect the boxer be has created 
from obvious irritations, such as 
female reporters arming from the 
tabloids wanting only to know how 
Bruno copes “without having sex 
before a fight", and what it is like 
“living with his white girlfriend” 
Despite all the interruptions. Law- 
less says Bruno has no problem ra 
“psyching” bimsdf for this fight; 
“It’s all he's been thinking of for 
years.” 

You sense that Bruno can some- 
times becomes irritated by his own 
“nice” image. At the Italian restau- 
rant in Leytonstone where he eats 
regularly with Lawless, and where 
many pictures of him adorn the 
walls, the manager praises him and 


his gargantuan appetite, adding 
fondly: “He is- a good man — too 
good fora boxer.” It is impossible to 
find anyone who will be severe on 
the man. So is he nasty enough to 
beat the wily and experienced 
Witherspoon? Terry Lawless smiles: 
“Mean 9 He's mean enough all nghL 
You should have seen him back 
here at the gym after that press 
conference!” 


B oxing, he says, is a busi- 
ness, about controlled ag- 
gression; Bruno has no 
need to throw his 16 
stones around outside the 
nng. Suppressed anger does show, 
however, when Bruno talks of 
comment which touches on his 
personal life. “I mean, Tm here to 
be set up and then knocked down, 
that's all right. But it’s nothing to do 
with my family.” He accepts his role 
as public property, but is careful to 
keep his girlfriend. Laura, and their 
three-year-old daughter (another 
baby is due in September), in the 
background — largely because intol- 
erant blacks as well as whites have 
attacked the relationship that has 
lasted since the pair were 18. 

Bruno bas won 20 of his 21 
professional fights. His only defeat 
was by James “Bonec rusher" Smith 
in 1984, when Bruno was knocked 
out m the tenth round. Many say he 
lacks serious experience, since so 
many of his fights have been against 


unworthy opponents. “He’s proved 
he can punch but not yet that be can 
fight” seems to be the consensus. 

This fact, set against 
Witherspoon's proven skill and 
staying power, plus Bruno's style of 
fighting (planting his feet and 
punching, rather than “dancing” 
like his admired All) could well cost 
him the fight. Yet he is far fitter than 
Witherspoon, and those .dose to 
him say he has gamed in power and 
confidence during the past year. His 
sparring partner. Rufus Hadley, 
gives Bruno the edge: “I've sparred 
with Witherspoon as well, so I 
should know. Look — boxing is 90 
per cent attitude, and Bruno wants 
that win so much” The secret, says 
Hadley, will be for Bruno to 
concentrate on the fact that he is not 
fighting the man, but that man’s 
mistakes — and to be cool enough, to 
make him make mistakes. 

Modern boxing talk is of psychol- 
ogy and strategy, not just brawn. 
Bruno himself slips easily into a

mon criminals. 

But it wiD be a gentler form 
of Interrogation than that 
apparently used by Shim Bet 
when the army handed over 
the two Palestinians h had 
captured on board a hijacked 
bos on. the Gaza Strip. 

There are many versions of. 
what happened but the one 
undisputed fact is that the two 
Palestinians were dead within 
hours of being handed over to 
Shin Bet No charges have 
been made against the offi- 
cers concerned ami President 
Chaim Herzog .has given 
them a pardon for anything 
they might have done. 

Mr Shimon Peres, the 
Prime Munster, has ex- 
plained to the Knesset why 
there should be no "charges. 
For the head of Shin Bet and 
his colleagues to be able to 
defend themselves, he said, 
“they have the right to take a 
line of defence (hat they, think 
is right — and drey said: tom- 
line of defence is that this was 
not the first time'.” Mr Penes 
gave a warning that any 
prosecution would mean re- 
vealing “a very lengthy series 
of precedents”.

you a lonely person. You have to be. 
You have to sacrifice a lot of things 
other people expect” 

If Frank Bruno fails in his bid for 
the title on Sunday, knowing as he 
does that he is carrying such a 
burden of national hope as well as 
business interests on his shoulders, 
he wifi feel even lonelier. One thing 
is certain: if he loses he will try 
again, because mentally and physi- 
cally he is programmed for nothing 
else. And if he wins, an even worse 
pressure will be only just beginning 
— real show-business. 


1986: Knocked out Game Coetzee in

The fine art of

Richard Luce, the Arts Minis- 
ter, will be at the Festival Hall 


tomorrow sounding the fog- 
horn for the benefit of the 


horn for the benefit of the 
press to launch the Museums 
Roadshow, which is open to 
the public this weekend. 

It is all thanks to marketing 
expert Hilary Blume who has 
persuaded 21 museums, from 
the august British to the 
foghorn-supplying Aberdeen 
Maritime, to shake off their 
inhibitions. But the Arts 
Minister's presence hints at 
the big business objective 
behind the hilarity. 

The BM is supplying a 
travelling mint, the V & A a 
traditional Punch and Judy 
Show, Tyne and Wear Muse- 
ums some armour: Sam 
Wanamaker’s Bear Garden ns 
Shakespearean strolling play- 
ers and York’s Castle Museum 
an apple peeler. An Iron Age 
loom is coming from the 
Homiman. There wifi also be 
a horse-drawn bus to the 
South Bank from Waterloo 
Station. 

And there will not be a glass 
case in sight. Visitors will be 
able to* make corn dollies, 
dress up in histone costume, 
appear on video television, eat 
Woolton pie. be photographed 
inside a bubble - and go to the 
souvenir shop. 


phoned by the South East 
Area Museums Service about 
trading m museums”, says 
Blume. “As we got nearer to 
the problem we thought, 
‘What museums need is some- 
body to market museums'.” 
The roadshow idea was boro 
— with the museums going on 
the road to London's South 
Bank. 

Blume is director of the 
Chanties Advisory Trust, 
which helps chanties to make 
money. She found that 60 per 
cent of museum shops id 
Britain were trading at a loss. 

“I'd like to see a shop' in 
Covent Garden as a museum 
shop, like the National Trust 
shops: We could take the stock ! 
from all the different muse- j 
urns and make a marvellous ; 
centre. It would help the 
museums, providing a race to 
the world, encourage people to 
go to museums and appeal: to 
tourists," she says. 

To help museums set about 


It is difficult to interpret 
that as anything other than 
an admission of something 
Israel has long denied — that 
Shin Bet habitually uses 
tough methods in what Mr 
Yitzhak Rabin, the Defence 
Minister, describes as the 
“war against terrorism”, 

A small group of lawyers in 
Israel who specialize in the 
defence of Palestinians claim 
that every prisoner is badly 
treated during interrogation 
and that about a third of them 
suffer some form of torture. 

There are only three Jew- 
ish lawyers — all women — 
wfaq do this kind of work' 
along with about 20 Palestin- 
ians and 20 Arab Israelis. 
They tend to be branded by 
the authorities as radical . 
anti-Zionists, politically moti- 
vated against the state. The. 
same accusations are levelled 
at the radical groups which 
collect and publish allega- 
tions of torture. 

One such group is the 
Alternative Information Cen- 
tre, formed 18 months age by 
a group of Palestinians and 
radical Jewish and Arab Is- 
raelis with the aim of publish- 
ing regular information about 


hooded, and left without food 
or sleep fir days on end. The 
interrogation often begins 
only after the isolation bs 
destroyed their morale. 

President Herzog, justify- 
ing his decision to ptodon 
those involved in the recent 
deaths, boasted that Shin Bet . 
had uncovered 320 terrorist 
groups last year and, so fav 
had intercepted 255 terrorist 
■missions this year. . - 

Mr Rajoub says that con- 
fessions flow easily under 
Shin Bet interrogation. He 
remembers how his confident . 
interrogator last November 
told him a story. 

It was about a competition 

between agen ts from the CIA, 

M15, the KGBawkShm Bei. . j 
Each agent was taken to r a JCf 
field where a gazeUe was 
released and he was toUL to 
catch it as quickly as possible. 

The OLA man brought his 
back in half an hour. It took 
MI5 six hours and the KGB a 
whole day.Twodayslater the 
SMnBet man returned with a ■' 
rabbit “That’s nota gazelle”, 
the others complaint. ■ 

“Oh yes ills", the Shia Bet 
man replied. “Yon lost as* 
the rabbit”. . -

On wilder shores 
of Irish letters 


J : P. Donleavy was bora 
m Brooklyn but, as toe 
result of some strange 
... ««* leap, he- writes 

«ke an Irishman - toemelod- 
ic cadences, the plangent vow- 
e (s. the slight air of fustian, are 
all. here. It is English set to 
S™2 C be heard as much m 
Wilde as in Yeats), a potent 
lorm or subversion that 
_ an the oppressive “sense” out 
of an oppressor's language. In 
Donleavy's case that style 
rarely errs on the side of 
precision and. like many nov- 
elists, when he is not in the 
company of his characters he 
is happy to slide into a r\kn^ 
circuitous, hypnotic mono- 
logue. And so it is that 
J.P. Donleavy's Ireland is part 
autobiography and part cul- 
tural travelogue, an account of 
his own growth as a writer, 
which might also pa« as a 
Baedeker for some of the 
wilder aspects of Irish life. 

Donleavy may have been 
born in America, but his 
parents were Irish: you can tell 
it from their photographs 
here, in feces that seem to 
have been beaten or weath- 
ered into shape. His first sight 
of the country itself however, 
came in the cinema, when he 
saw Liam O’Faberty’s The 
Informer. So Donleavy’s Ire- 
land was an Ireland of the 
spirit and of the imagination, 
something only heard of, 
“something which exists, un- 
touchable and unknown.” For 
most Irish Americans; of 
course, this is precisely what it 
remains; hence their lachry- 
mose and ultimately repellent 
nostalgie de la boue. But 
Donleavy wanted the real 
thing. And where most of his 
“creative” contemporaries 
migrated to Paris or to Lon- 
don, hoping to rival Fitzgerald 
or Eliot with their exilic 
imaginations, in 1946 
Donleavy flew across the At- 
lantic, only to arrive at Shan- 
non and enrol as a student at 
Trinity College, Dublin. 

Of course Dublin is essen- 
tially a fictional city, finding 
its terrible birth in Swift, its 
dreamy adolescence in YeaU, 
and its full-blown maturity in

J.P. DONLEAVY'S 
IRELAND 
In All Her Sins and in 
Some of Her Graces 
By J-P- Donleavy

Joyce. By the lime Donleavy 
arrived it had become — in his 
imagination — a slightly tired 
old party, raddled, obstreper- 
ous, haying at the edges; but 
still capable of having a good 
lime, and with an unsuspected 
capacity for tenderness. This 
is the city that he has since 
recreated in his novels— a 
place of “charming chancers”, 
of con-men and drunkards, of 
medical students inhaling 
their first borrowed cigarette 
in a dusty coffee-house, and of 
horsey Anglo-Irish ladies sit- 
ting down to luncheon in the 
Shelboume Hotel. If nothing 
else. J.P. Donleavy's Ireland 
marks the sources for some of 
the more outrageous stories 
and incidents in his first 
novel. The Ginger Man — 
although, given the innate 
Irishness of his imagination, it 
is conceivable that the fiction- 
al events have simply been 
given a new lease of life by 
being at last assigned to the 
real world. 

The distinction is not an 
important one, however; 
Donleavy’s writing is all of a 
piece: There is nobody quite 
like him for creating a mood 
of unforced gaiety mid blithe 
insouciance: his A Fairy Tale 
of New York is one of the 
funniest novels of recent 
times; and for the purposes of 
this apparently more factual 
book he has reapplied his ear 


for com ic dialogue and his eye 
for significant detail, h would 
be hard to find another narra- 
tive that so evokes the look 
and the feci of Ireland, with 
“the first browny green sight 
of those small meandering 
fields clustered about some 
white tiny cottage with turf 
smoke rising from its chimney 
on this windswept land that 
reached to the edge of the great 
heaving Atlantic Ocean.” 

But the gaiety and the genial 
chaos that he found here have 
their less picturesque aspects, 
also. And. as so often, Dublin 
must bear the sins of Ireland: 
despite its ritual obeisances to 
the saints and scholars, you 
would come away from 
Donleavy s Ireland with the 
impression of a city where the 
reigning household gods are 
Mars and Bacchus rather than 
some more polite deities. 


he young Donleavy 
seems to have spent 


T 


his time lamely in 
drinking and fighting 
along with everyone else; but 
if in his case these activities 
sprang from high spirits, for 
his Irish contemporaries they 
were only the most obvious 
manifestations of their frus- 
tration and despair. But, in the 
process of describing this, 
Donleavy has bit upon a 
curious truth of Irish life: this, 
most witty and civilized of 
races can also become one of 
the most savage and the most 
erotic. Jn the shadow of the 
Church, they are seen to 
couple furtively, blindly, like 
animals. But of this comes 
guilt as well as sadness; and 
Dublin can be a treacherous, 
rancorous city: “Alleyways 
whispering out their sad sor- 
rows of cold embraces. Pub 
walls repeating all their tales. 
The calumny, backbiting, and 
lies that begrudgers spoke”. 

And this is the other side of 
Ireland itself, expressed in The 
Ginger Man through Sebas- 
tian Dangerfield's desire to 
“get out of this god damn 
country which 1 hate with all 
my blood and which has 
ruined me.” This is the Ire- 
land that has been reared out 



of poverty and misery — pre- 
cisely the Ireland which 
Donleavy’s parents fled, but 
which he had to discover for 
himself. As a young man he 
had travelled to an imaginary 
country, but bis vague myths 
were soon impaled upon the 
“narrow-minded, bigoted and 
bitterly resentful ways” of its 
real people. 

It isa tribute to his imagina- 
tive honesty that this anger is 
embedded m a narrative that 


could so easily have turned 
into a self-indulgent fantasy. 
But, as its subtitle suggests, 
this is a book designed to 
evoke the “sins” as well as the 
“graces” of the country — just 
as. in Donleavy's novels, the 
gaiety consorts with the sav- 
agery, the poverty and mean- 
ness are to be seen within the 
broad ambience of a cheerful 
and almost visionary humour. 
He is an important writer 
because he can an out the 


fantasy at the same time as he 
sees the truth — and because 
he realizes that they need each 
other. 

Donleavy left Ireland after 
seven years; but he could not 
stay away. He kept on coming 
back and then, in 1967, he 
returned for life. He was 
coming home — at least com- 
ing home to himself for. as he 
says here. “Ireland was a slate 
of mind I now carried with me 
where’er one might go.” 


Gough Whitlam was leader of 
the Australian Labor Party for 
eleven years, and Prime Min- 
ister of Australia for three, 
from 1972 to 1975. These 
years were among the most 
exciting in Canberra’s history. 
It is easy to see why. When 
Whitlam cameto power. La- 
bor-through quarrels that 
led to a split in the party — 
had been out of office for 23 
years. The long reign of the 
Liberal Party was due almost 
entirely to the mighty figure of 
Robert Menzies, who gave the 
country what it loved most 
stability and moderation, a 
touch of paternalism, no cause 
to worry, and no reason to 
think. A couple of pale shad- 
ows followed him. and gradu- 
ally it became obvious that the 
tired old Liberals needed a 
rest, and the time was right to 
give Labor a whirl. 

Not surprisingly, the Labor 
Party was hungry and ready 
for power. There was much to 
do, and Whitlam lost no lime. 
He and his able but inexperi- 
enced ministers went on a 
binge- Radical reforms and 
progressive ideas swirled out 
of Canberra. It was beady 
stuff; and it all ended in tears. 
On U November 1975, 
Gough Whitlam and his gov- 
ernment were sacked by tite 
then Governor-General. Sir 
John Kerr. The circumstance 
surrounding this extraordi- 
nary event have been written 
about endlessly, and even

1972-1975 
By Gough Whitlam

made into a televirion series 
shown here last year. With so 
much, emphasis on Whitlam ’s 
dismissal, the aspirations and 
achievements of his three 
years in office have been 
under-analysed. 

It was inevitable, then, that 
Whitlam would write this 
book. It is a detailed record of 
what was attempted in those 
years and why, it is a welcome 
and necessary reference work 
for students of Australia. But 
with a little more effort on the 
part of the author and the 
publisher, it could have had 
wider appeal. It is an effort to 
read. It is dully presented — 
even the cover is an 
unappetising slate-grey, kan- 
garoo colour — and it is dully 
written with many a sentence 
both clumsy and verbose. 

I opened the book with 
much enthusiasm, egged on by 


the publisher’s blurb, which 
states: “Whitlam paints a 
broad and illuminting canvas 
of Australia as it was. as it has 
become, and as it yet might 
be.” He doesn’t. The “As it 
was” — the history — is 
skimpy. The difficulty Austra- 
lia had in the early years in 
attracting immigrants is dis- 
missed in one sentence: “The 
penal colony feature of the 
nations development discour- 
aged most Europeans from 
embarking upon migration.” 
And other historical sections 
(on women, for example) are 
merely a litany of previous 
tislation. 

it the book does - and 
does well — is paint a picture, 
under headings lifted from 
Cabinet portfolios (education, 
aborignes. transport, housing, 
and so on) of the policies of a 
Prime Minister who was an 
innovative thinker and a man 
of virion, and of a Govern- 
ment that had real plans for 
Australia. Some were grand, 
like the attempts to borrow 
millions of dollars of Arab 
money to fund a dream to buy 
Australia back from the grip of 
foreign investors. Others were 
less grand and rather meddle- 
some. like the Commission to 


explore the whole area of 
Human Relationships, 

This is hardly an objective 
book. There is much self- 
justification and special plead- 
ing, and some revealing 
sniping at opponents. Whit- 
lam is inordinately proud of 
being an educated and cul- 
tured man, and was obviously 
delighted to discover that 
when Malcom Fraser, the man 
who ousted him, got The 
Lodge, he turned the music 
room into a spare toilet. There 
is also the barely veiled sug- 
gestion that one of the reasons 
why Rupert Murdoch’s news- 
papers turned against him 
(having supported him in the 
beginning} was that Murdoch 
was disappointed not to have 
been appointed High Com- 
missioner to London. 

Although this book is not 
about the dismissal (Whitlam 
has written about that in The 
Truth of the Matter), there is 
plenty of room in 700 pages 
for whitlam to restate that tite 
events of November 1975 
were a political crisis, which 
he should have been left alone 
to solve, and that they should 
not have been turned into a 
constitutional crisis by the 
Establishment out to remove 
him. 

All this may well be true. 
But it doesn’t answer the feet 
that in an election held a fews 
weeks after the dismissal, it 
was the voters who finally 
turned hire out

Taking a mallet 
to Gandhi’s halo 


At almost every level this is a 
disappointing book. To begin 
with its title suggests an 
expos& of Gandhi; instead he 
only features, in any sub- 
stance, in part four. Then, the 
portrait that emerges is nei- 
ther new nor revealing. Its 
hallmark, if the term is appro- 
priate, is its bias against the 
man. The tone is often sneer- 
ing, the interpretation crude, 
and the attempt to understand 
the Mahatma’s philosophy of 
foibles is shallow. 

For instance, Gandhi's 
“Saiyagraha" is glibly de- 
scribed as “non-violent reli- 
gious terrorism", without any 
attempt lo justify the termin- 
ology. Elsewhere the philoso- 
phy of Krishna from the 
Bhagavadgita, from which 
Gandhi derived much of his 
own thinking, is peremptorily 
dismissed as “a formula for 
the dehumanization of man”. 
And the entire history of 
Gandhi and the R^j is present- 
ed as a conspiracy between 
succesive Viceroys and the 
Mahatma to prop up the 
conservatism of the latter. It's 
not even eleven so how could 
it be convincing. 

Of course, there is much of 
the Mahatma that nos myth. 
But almost 40 years later 
most, if noi all of it has been 
exposed. Gandhi's attitude to .

was obscurantist even in bis 
own time, and his leading 
contemporaries were barely 
tolerant of it His obsession 
with his libido was frequently 
embarrassing; but Gandhi 
never hid it. His autobiogra- 
phy is still the best source of 
reference for digging it up. 
Even Gandhi’s failures in 
South Africa are well known. 
No doubt Mr Edwardes is 
right in pointing out that 
Attenborough’s Gandki ig- 
nored them; but that is not a 
good excuse for a bad book 
about the subject. 

Although it purports to be 
about Gandhi, for the most 
part this is a pedestrian, at 
limes ponderous, history of 
the Raj. Its account of the 
development of the Empire is 
correct but not illuminating. 
Only the 24 illustrations are 
interesting, although the cap- 
tions are carelessly inaccurate:

Once upon a time 
... for feminists 


There was once a cartoon that 
showed a troabadoor ascend- 
ing a tower by means of his 
ladylove's hair. Climbing 
through the window be discov- 
ers the long blonde tresses 
have sprouted not from his 
maiden's bead bnt her chin. 

Roughly the same expres- 
sion will contort the features of 
Che gallant reader who picks 
np Jack Zipes's edition of 
contemporary feminist Bury 
tales. Not in reaction to the 
tales; bnt to the essays that 
accompany them. 

Significantly, these essays 
are penned by other hands 
than the fairy-tale aathors*. 
The noble exception is Profes- 
sor Zipes. It is be, the only 
man around, who explains that 
feminist fairy tales are a 
critique of the male viewpoint 
that has dangerously influ- 
enced chQdren in their concep- 
tion and expectations of the 
world. For small boys. Little 
Red Riding Hood instils the 
impression that all women 
wish to be raped. For little 
girls, the moral to be drawn 
from Steeping Beauty is that 
beauty is their most valuable 
asset, marriage their only 
prize, and passivity the best 
means of attaining it. 

To Professor Zipes’s aid 
come a swarm of literal- 
minded American academics, 
whose experience has shown 
that marriage is no prize bnt a 
punishment, and that step- 
mothers can be nice- 

Apart from Zipes’s own 
contribution, the (ales them- 
selves are provocative, witty, 
and entertaining, with distin- 
guished contributions from 
Angela Carter, Maragert 
Atwood, and Tanhh Lee. Tra- 
ditional motifs and plots are 
employed, only to be subvert- 
ed, so that what is oa offer is 
neither escape nor a moral 
cade bnt pnmpkin-like reality. 
In one, the Prince marries dm 
the Princess bnt the Witch — 
a pretty girl with a bat called 
Basfl. In another, Cinderella 
refoses the Prince, pretending 
the slipper is too tight. 

Antony Lamhtoa's second 
novel also tampers with the 
fairy-tale. Inspired by an auto- 
biographical fragment of tin 
German poet, Heine, this ath- 
letic footnote tells of a young 
executioner's daughter who 
dreams raoonfly of love and 
eventually finds ft in Heine's 
arms. 

Lambtou writes with great 
confidence hot with tittle econ- 
omy or tightness of tooch. (His 
characters are fed not on sugar 
and spice, bet on Goethe and 
Hegel.) Hijacking a familiar 
literary form at some length, 
be does not quite know where 
to take ft. There is also an 
irritatingly knowledgeable 
tone that seeps through the 
false simplicity — the tone of 
someone who knows from 
cvnerience that a girl who goes

Some of it teeters from the

When Odd what this means, 
the heroine remarks, “Yes, 
I’ve noticed that’s the case

with me.” 

More profitable proof of the 
fairy-tale's endurance is to be 
found in two first novels. The 
Game of the Pink Pagoda , by 


loss, a teacher at 
Essex University, is a work of 
conscious literary trickery. 
Clever (sometimes too much 
so), and written with a fine 
ability to impersonate a range 
of differing styles, it invites the 
reader to witness — and , more 
archly, participate in — a se- 
ries of permatations involving 
the same set pieces. A pink 
pagoda in a wood, the owner of 

the big house, the owner of 
nearby quarries, the beautiful 
woman, and so on. 

Each chapter tells a com- 
pletely different tale until it

really a demonstration of the

that the Pink Pagoda is merely

American dreams 
at the courts 
of Henry I and II 


Robert Lacey’s latest block- 
buster is dedicated to his 
agent, and quite right too. For 
it was be who suggested, 
following two previous 
bestsellers involving royalty, 
money, and power in Britain 
(Majesty) and Saudi Arabia 
(The Kingdom), that Lacey 
should jump continents again 
to find the same profitable 
combination of ingredients 
among one of America’s impe- 
rial dynasties. Due partly to 
the great wealth of the Ford 
archives, partly to the aston- 
ishing openness of practically 
every living member of the 
clan, the Fords turn out to 
provide the best subject yet for 
his particular talent. 

As an historian turned jour- 
nalist, he is able to combine 
the methods of Insight investi- 
gation with an impeccable 
respect for toe written sources. 
Both the breadth of his re- 
search and the 200-odd inter- 
views he conducted compel 
unstinting admiration. Yet the 
book is not, as it so easily 
might have been, just a piling 
up of facts laced with gossip. It 
is vividly written, in a racy but 
economical style that only 
occasionally lapses into cliche. 
The large and crowded canvas 
is managed with skili and 
perspective; and Lacey's 
judgements are shrewd, hu- 
mane. and fair. It is a triumph 
of popular scholarship. 

It is really two books, for toe 
first 400 pages are essentially a 
biography of Henry Ford I, 
while the last third is toe 
subsequent history of the 
company under his grandson 
Henry IL The tatter is for the 
most part an unedifying story, 
in which oral sources inevita- 
bly come to predominate — 
everybody involved in the 
power struggles of Henry n 
and Lee lacocca seems to be 
for ever either "kicking ass” or 
“sucking ass”. But this is like 
the tawdry sequel to a clastic 
film. Lacey’s best writing, and 
the bulk of the bode, is 
devoted to the epic of Henry 1. 

No one better embodies the 
contradictions of the Ameri- 
can dream than Henry Ford. 
On the one hand he was the 
country boy who liked tinker- 
ing with farm machines, the 
democratic genius who popu- 
larized a rich man's toy by 
putting it within the reach of 
every American, the benevo- 
lent employer, and toe folksy 
idealist who used his status as 
an American hero to preach 
his personal gospel of self- 
reliance, fair dealing, and 
dean living across the nation. 
On the other hand it was the 
mass ownership of motor cars, 
more than anything else, that 
destroyed the old rural Ameri- 
ca he cherished; while his 
invention of the production 
line enslaved more thoroughly 
than ever before all those free 
Americans to whom he ad- 
dressed his sermons. In the 
hungry Thirties Fond fought 
the unions more unscrupu- 
lously than anyone. In truth, 
in his private life and his 
business ethics alike, old Hen-

ry was very far from the 
upright paternalist of the pop- 
ular imagination. He was an 
unfaithful husband, a pecu- 
liarly cruel father to his only 
son, a ruthlessly hypocritical 
manipulator of his own ad- 
vantage; and he ran his busi- 
ness as ah arbitrary, jealous, 
and often crack-brained 
despot. 

Lacey splendidly demythoi- 
ogizes Ford without denying 
toe quirky genius that ensured 
that even when his sins and 
inconsistencies were exposed, 
his hold on the American 
imagination remained unbro- 
ken. The chapter in which he 
traces the roots of Ford's 
homespun philosophy, adapt- 
ed from Emerson to fit his 
own prejudices, is especially 
good. But equally brilliant is 
his account of the means by 
which Ford forced down the 
value of his own company's 
shares in order to do down his 
partners and acquire sole con- 
trol as cheaply as possible. 
Even to the reader with no 
previous understanding of ei- 
ther business or cars, Lacey 
presents the ingenious con- 
trivances of Ford’s devious 
mind with an appalling 
clarity. 

As easy as sentimentalizing 
Henry I would have been to 
take a hatchet to Henry II. In 
feet Lacey is as fair to young 
Henry’s rescue of the compa- 
ny after the war, before bis 
decline into alcoholism and 
the divorce court, as he is 
dear-sighted about his grand- 
father. Yet the contrast be- 
tween the generations points 
an inescapable commentary 
on the corruption of American 
innocence. Old Henry was a 
devil, but he was an authentic 
hero. He had fine ideals, even 
if he counldn't live up to 
them. His progeny are just 
another rich, spoilt, feuding 
dynasty, straight out of Dallas. 
As he put it in his individual, 
unlettered spelling; “Money 
the Root of all EvaL" But he 
made it for them.

constituunallv perform, for one 
very simple and conclusive reason 
Then? is no constitutional source 
of advice to the sovereign as 
“Head of the C ommonweaith “ 
because as such she has no 
responsible ministers on whose 
adv ice to act 


In those ( ommonweaith coun- 
tries ot which she is the sovereign 
she or her representative acts in 
respect of those countries on the 
advice of their ministers In the 
republics or a country like Malay- 
sia which has its own monarch 
she has bv definition no function 
and receives no constitutional 
advice 

The Queen I am sure under- 
stands the constitutional position 
fullv and would not contemplate 
acting other than constitutionally 
We have wronged her and our- 
selves bv constructing the pre- 
tence of a political entity, the 
( ommonweaith and acting as if it 
realty existed 

No amount of talk and pretence 
will make it reality Unfortunately 
in the course of talking and 
pretending, the sovereign states 
can harm themselves in the real 
exercise of real power That is the 
nature of the self-punishment 
which Britain inflicted on itself by 
maintaining m its law the assertion 
that citizens of other countries. 


I he consequences of that monu- 
mental humbug belong m this 
country- to the realm of reality 
Ihirry years of contention and 
legislation have been powerless to 
prevent or reverse them 


As Head of the ( ommonweaith 
the Queen occupies a unique and 
largelv untested position She is 
not subject to the restraints ot 
ministerial “advice" since the 
( ommonweaith is not a super- 
state with ministers and all the 
apparatus ot government I ike the

role in the C ommonweaith if one 
that has to be exercised with due 
care One of the ways m which the 
t ommonweaith differs from the 
l \ is, precisely that it has an 
accepted titular head, to whom all 
its members look with affection 
and respect It is a remarkable fed 
that the Head of Commonwealth 
should also be hereditary sov- 
ereign of the former imperial 
overlord nation Britain It is a 
privilege for us as well as for her 
which only the very gravest na- 
tional interest would justify our 
putting at risk 

To all its members the 
< ommonweaith offers what a 
former pnme minister of New 
Zealand called “Independence 
plus” I o all of them Bntam 
included, it gives some enhance- 
ment of status, while also provid- 
ing a framework within which 
useful work can be done 

lor Bntam as the cultural 
metropolis of the group — as 


Trance is ot the french comma 
riUv — it has manv hidden adv an 
tflges analogous to invisible 
exports in the economic sphere 
But it has also proved an asset in 
the most overt and palpable form 
as when all ( ommonweaith' coun- 
tries, without exception gave us 
moral support durmg the Falk

mobilized bv the C ommonweaith

Suppose a package of mandatory 
sanctions were the only way of 
keeping the ( ommonweaith to- 
gether and Mrs rhatcher were the 
odd one out 9 W hen this question 
was pnt to her recently on tele- 
vision. she replied: “Bet if I were 
the odd one ont and I were right, 
that wouldn't matter, would it?" 

Iliis answer was seized on with 
relish by the kind of opinion which 
describes itself as radical; it 
proved the Prime Minister to be 
blinkered and arrogant. So let ns 
invert bo- reply to fee only other 
logical response she could have 
given. Imagine she had said: “If I 
were fee odd one out, then I should 
hare to subordinate my own 
judgement to that id 1 fee Common- 
wealth majority, even though, 
having beard ail the arguments, I 
remained convinced feat 1 was 
right.” 

This would mean feat the 
democratically elected head of fee 
British government, despite the 
support of fee parliamentary 
majority, should go against her 


own better judgement, and delib- 
erately risk all fee adverse con- 
sequences she foresees from 
sanctions for fee sake of bolding 
the C ommonweaith together We 
must therefore now face fee ques- 
tion. is the ( ommonweaith worth 
such a sacrifice of principle by 
British representative govern- 
ment 9 

fhe political case against sanc- 
tions rests partly on fee harm to 
blacks who would lose their liveli- 
hood and on the economic retali- 
ation by South Africa which would 
harm the popnlations of 
neighbouring states. But worst of 
all, sanctions would stiffen Pre- 
toria against negotiations since fee 
principal advocates of sanctions 
make it dear that their purpose is 
to produce a unitary state with 
universal suffrage, in which the 
African National Congress might 
become permanently dominant 

rhe 4 £ milium whites could not 
accept such a solution, which 
would risk the end of the advanced 
society they have constructed. 


Ultimate sacrifice, 
but for what? 


Prey would resist Many cm the 
left would probably embrace the 
ensuing carnage fatalistically as 
the necessary price to be paid for 
their ideologically preferred solu- 
tion. But a peaceful outcome 
requires some kind of federal or 
confederal solution and negotia- 
tions to that end would be more 
acceptable by Pretoria if fee threat 
of sanctions were removed. 

let regardless of the dangers, 
should sanctions be accepted to 
preserve the Commonwealth? De- 
spite nightly indoctrination by 
television that fee angels are on 
fee Commonwealth’s side over 
sanctions, there is little sign (at 
least if MPs' postbags is evidence) 
that public opinion thinks so. Of 


course, fee Commonwealth is use- 
ful in preserving old Inks (with aid 
and trade) between advanced and 
the new states, creating a special 
bridge between the latter and 
Western d em oc ra cies. 

But its number of 

one-party states, military dictator- 
ships and personal regimes hardly 
supp orts the theory that the 
f ommonweaith actively promotes 
democratic principles. Nor does 
the use of fee bludgeon by the 
majority to get its way. There is a 
stark contrast wife fee European 
( o mra unity of representative 
democracies wind move forward 
only by gen sine agreements or 
agreements to differ, and withort 
threats to pull ont 


Britain now faces expedient 
pressure for gesture-sanc tions b y 
white Commonwealth countries 
who would hardly be affected by 
sanctions of any sort. More dan- 


gerously, there are the demands 
for trade or general sanctions by 
Mack countries which either refose 
to see fee damage of sanctions to 
feeir own peoples, or are content to 
pay this price for the chaos they 
hope to see in Sooth Africa as 
blacks without a livelihood are 
driven to more unrest, provoking 
further repression which .would 
then become fee basis for demands 
for direct intervention. Any pro- 
gramme of progressive sanctions 
would place ns on a dangerous 
escalator

Northfield in Birmingham does

Recently I spent an evening 
talking to Conservative party 
stalwarts in Northfield It was a 
lair cross-section an accountant 
three pensioners three house- 
wives and one working woman 
The remaining four had worked 
their way up to managerial po- 
sitions They had travelled a small 
but significant distance from feeir 
working-dass origins 


They were for the most part 
children of the 1910s and ’40s 
This had coloured their opinions 
and formed feeir political atti- 
tudes There was little sympathy 
with or understanding of fee plight 
of the unemployed even when fee 
conversation turned to fee pros- 
pects now facing feeir own chil-

not a solvent of Conservatism in 
Northfield 


Several times durmg fee eve- 
ning I was forcibly reminded that 
the onlv reason these people bad 
got where thev were was because 
thev went out and fought for it 
One man said “I left school when

Father worked at British Leyiand 
putting wheels on cars But al- 
though he was not what you would 
call an educated man he was 
determined I should get a proper

training as an apprentice elec 
tncian ” He got a job wife one of 
Birmingham’s largest companies 
He staved 10 vears steadily 
climbing the promotion ladder 
Then a few months ago because ot 
a shortage of orders he was 
sacked 


But he blames neither fee 


government nor fee company and 
has gone back to night school for a 
computer programming course in 
the hope of either finding another 
job or even starting bis own

l nemplovment in fee West Mid-

1 X per cent but while shops and 
offices have taken on temporary 
workers, fee number employed in 
manufacturing is still foiling. At 
BI alone fee workforce has fallen 
from a peak of 24 000 to 11 500 
Normally BI hires about 7 00 
people a vear to replace those who

have been no calls to the

During fee 1981 election cam-

we have to do is work out how to 
employ people in wavs they have 
not been employed before Ye

This is a message feat fee Tones 
ot Northfield are not vet ready to

But in that case their only hope is 
that long-term economic and 
demographic trends will come to

two sides had had to dig to find 
common ground. The long- 
term’ economic agreement 
gives Britain a status in its 
dealings with the Soviet Union 
similar to that enjoyed by most 
of Western Europe The agreed 
new procedures to enable war- 
ships of the two countries to

anyway governed by inter- 
. national regulations. 

Moreoever the settlement of 
the nearly 70 year old feud on 
reparations for damage sus- 
tained to British interests in 
Russia during the 1 9 1 7 revolu- 
tion should be seen for what it 
is: a symbolic gesture which 
has cost neither side very 
much but gives an attractive 
impression of progress. In fact, 
the British side has come off 
considerably worse in terms of 
foe paper money transactions 
involved. 

The fed that both parties to 
the agreement have chosen to 
endorse the impression that 
there has been a radical depar- 
ture from the habits of the past 
10 years illustrates how keen 
both sides were to clean the 
slate of Anglo-Soviet relations 
and start afresh. But habits and 
attitudes die hard and the 
Anglo-Soviet relationship has 
been a graveyard of good 
intentions. 

It is as well to consider some 
of these before the realities of 
Anglo-Soviet relations become 
too deeply buried in euphoria 
about the new start In the 
winter of 1984 the Soviet 
leader designate made a highly 
successful visit to Britain 
which was analysed at the time 
as a dry run for Soviet diplo- 
macy Gorbachov-style and as 
evidence that both sides were 
intent on establishing better 
relations. A matter of months 
later the goodwill evaporated 
in a series of mutual dip- 
lomatic expulsions which de- 
prived Britain of some of its 
most experienced diplomats 
and journalists in Moscow. 

It is important, too, to 
examine the motives for the 
good intentions — on both 
sides. We are used to seeing the 
motivation of Western leaders 
who try to improve relations 
with Moscow interpreted in 
domestic terms. The desire to 
dear up outstanding diffi- 
culties, to be remembered as a 
peace-maker, to appear as a 


on the ' high seas which is _ 

> QUICKER BY QUANGO 


statesman of world stature. 
But similar considerations op- 
erate in the Soviet Union of 
the 1980s. 

The one consistent feature 
of Mr Gorbachov’s foreign 
policy, which has otherwise 
been riddled with contradic- 
tions, has been a determina- 
tion to dear the decks of 
problems inherited from pre- 
vious leaderships. He has paid 
especial attention to problems 
which restrict the Soviet 
Union’s capacity for effective 
operation in the 1980s and 
which are capable of relatively 
cheap solution. The question 
of compensation for Britain's 
pre-revolutionary investors 
was one of these, as was the 
matter of Japanese who 
wanted to visit family graves 
on the Kurile Islands which 
has also been solved recently. 

The third element affecting 
the success of Mr 
Shevardnadze’s visit to Britain 
is, as the announcement of 
new talks in Geneva so graphi- 
cally demonstrated, the 
United States. The spectre of 
the United States hovered 
uneasily over ai! Mr 
Shevardnadze’s talks in Lon- 
don, whether in speculation 
about a second superpower 
summit or in discussions 
about the Strategic Defence 
Initiative and the difficulties 
of verification in space. In- 
deed, it tended to obscure the 
bilateral essence of Mr 
Shevardnadze’s visit. 

All this should have posed - 
but rarely did — the question of 
whether the Soviet Union was 
interested in better relations 
with Britain for its own sake, 
or whether Britain is seen from 
Moscow merely as a conduit 
through which it can commu- 
nicate with and perhaps exert 
pressure on Washington. This 
is something we need to know 
before Mr Shevardnadze's 
visit is described either as a 
success or as a return to 
normality in Anglo-Soviet 
relations.

The opening of the Becton 
marshes to housing, the re- 
newal of the economy of the 
Isle of Dogs, the Albert Dock 
development, the Garden 
Festival site: these are a phys- 
ical manifestation of success in 
restoring people and economic 
activity to sterile lands. Little 
wonder then, that planner and 
politicians are attracted by the 
model for other inner city 
works. 

The ageing of the nineteenth 
century city cores, the failure 
of local economies, blighted 
land, social malaise — all of 
which is conveniently labelled 
the inner city problem — 
survives, and in some cities 
worsens, despite the variety of 
“urban policy” initiatives. The 
development corporation as a 
means of more effectively 
delivering public money .to 
specified urban areas is no 
more apanacea than any other, 
it will not by itself conquer the 
persistent problem of duplica- 
tion between government 
departments nor can it counter 
long-term structural economic 
decline. But, with caveats, here 
is a model worth further 
experimental application. 

It will need always to be 
tailored to local circumstance. 
What might be needed, for 
example, to reclaim derelic- 
tion and promote investment 
in Liverpool should not be 


expected to apply in West 
Midlands, with it* energetic 
and sensible local politicians 
and its stout record in helping 
combat economic recession. 
There are several areas where a 
single purpose corporation 
with a handsome budget and a 
clear task of physical regenera- 
tion could surely make 
progress: in Geveland perhaps 
and in parts of Greater Man- 
chester. 


Development corporations 
are no substitute for local 
authorities. They cannot ex- 
press local opinion; there is no 
evidence that appointed bod- 
ies could carry out such 
municipal services as educa- 
tion or social support What 
corporations can do is relieve 
certain local authorities of the 
work of land acquisition and 
development which involves 
skills and sums which councils 
do not, by and large, possess. 


The development corpora- 
tion is a building agency, a 
body to realise a plan. It 
should be finite in term and 
limited in geographical extent 
But above all it costs money. 
To attempt to promote 
development corporations as a 
solution to inner city problems 
without providing the where- 
withal to make them work 
would be a discreditable 
deception.

The London Borough of Brent 
had statutory care of Jasmine 
Beckford. It delegated that care 
to professionally qualified so-

hierarchy of supervision. Jas-

itor her progress after she had 
been retumed to her mothers 
care allowed the man with

large errors in 
fessional life - a fete which 
rarely attends professionals in 
medicine and the law — they 
deserved decent obscurity in 
some other field of work. 

But both are again in the 
public eye, and rightly so. It is 
not vindictiveness to register 
concern at the speed with 
which they have found 
employment in social work 
and in teaching social work. 

Having been censured by 
Blom-Cooper and sacked by 
Brent both women might have 
appeared to have been dis- 
q uSified from further work m 
social services. Ms Wahlsuom 
is now a responsible officer to 
mental health. She is to be 
entrusted, like all qualified 
social workers, with delegated 
legal powers. She is deemed to

public confidence has not been 
maintained by the ease with 
which she has moved to 
another position in which she 
will have to exercise judge- 
ment. At the leasta. penod of 
penitence, possibly also an 
amount of retraining might 
have been expected. 

The career success of Ms 
Dietmann is even more_star^ 


might, charitably, argue that 
having learnt a great lesson 
from her mistakes in the 
Beckford case Ms Dietmann 
would be a good counsellor to 
fiiture generations of trainee 
social services staff. But the 
Blom-Cooper report leaves lit- 
tle doubt that Ms Dietmann 
has been anything but contrite. 
Intellectually, it appears, she 
was convinced she was right in 
her approach to the Beckford 
case, and that makes it all the 
more worrying that her 
appointment in Wolver- 
hampton has, by the testimony 
of foe college vice-principal, 
been influenced by ' her 
“sincerity and commitment”. 

The merit of the long and 
expensive inquiry into the 
Beckford case was that, like 
such inquiries as that into 
Maria Colwell's death 12 years 
ago, everyone learnt 
lessons.The protection of chil- 
dren and the delicate task of 
intervention in family life by 
the State improved; But the 
report was also a judgement on 
local government officers. The 
fate oFMs Wahlstrom and now 
of Ms Dietmann looks like 
nothing so much as the ma-

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Athletes caught in political net 


From the Honorary Life President 
of the International Olympic 
Committee 

Sir, The Prime Minister, Mrs 
Thatcher, is reported as saying, 
“Boycotts will not end apartheid”. 
She remembered that in 1980, 
following the lead of the President 
of the United Slates and with the 
aid of the then Prime Minister of 
Australia, she was instrumental in 
trying to organise a boycott of the 
Olympic Games in Moscow. 

Perhaps she has realised that the 
Soviet troops are still in Afghani- 
stan six years after and regrets her 
boycott appeal which, to their 
credit, was refuted by the British 
Olympic Association as well as the 
Australian. 

The boycott by the USA re- 
sulted in the partial boycott by the 
eastern European countries ai Los 
Angeles in 1984. 

Nobody won the political 
games, but in both cases the 
competitors and competitions suf- 
fered. 

The Commonwealth Games do 
not come within the ambit or 
under the patronage of the Inter- 
national Olympic Committee; 
lhey are different from the world- 
wide Olympic Games or the 
continental and regional games 
(which do not discriminate on 
race, politics or religion) as ibey 
are based on a political, as 
opposed to geographical entity — 
the Commonwealth. 

There is a similarity in all 
international sports in that some 
athletes can defy the dictates or 
desires of their political leaders 
and travel freely, while others 


suffer from the decision of power- 
ful politicians. In 1980 in the USA 
there was even a threat of denial of 
travel permission. 

Having presided over the IOC 
when there were boycotts at 
Montreal and Moscow, I write 
with great feeling for the athletes 
who are the victims of political 
expediency. 

Yours faithfully, 

KILLANIN.

From Mr John M. Taylor, MP for 
Solihull (Conservative) 

Sir, In 1968 Basil D’Oliveira, bom 
in South Africa, was chosen by the 
England cricket selectors to tonr 
South Africa with the England 
team. The South African authori- 
ties said he was not welcome. The 
English selectors, quite rightly, 
said they would not permit such 
interference with their right to 
choose their own team and pulled 
out of the tour. 

In 1986 Zola Budd, bom in 
South Africa, was chosen by the 
England athletics selectors to com- 
pete in the Commonwealth 
Games with the England team. 
The Commonwealth Games 
authorities said she was “not 
eligible” (welcome?). 

Should not the English selectors 
stand by Zola Budd as they stood 
by Basil D’Oliveira?

S African crisis 

From Dr Stephen Mennell 
Sir, The “‘kith and kin” card is at 
last played by Mr J. H. Spencer 
Ashworth in his letter (July 16) 
about the South Africans at 
Delville Wood in the Fust World 
War. 

As an antidote to such 
sentimentality, readers of The 
Times may care to be reminded 
that the then leaders of the party 
which now rules the Republic of 
South Africa were on Hitler’s side 
in the Second World War.

Jews in Russia 

From Dr Paul Robinson and Dr 
Mark Berger 

Sir, We have just retumed from 
the Soviet Onion, where we 
visited, in Moscow and Lenin- 
grad, a number of Jewish phy- 
sicians and biologists, who are 
being denied the opportunity to 
work at a level consonant wife 
their training, entirely because 
they have applied for emigration 
to Israel. 

We sawa former virologist, who 


has been refused permission to 
publish his thesis on oncorna 
viruses and who now works as 
urologist, seeing over 50 patients a 
day in a clinic. We saw a former 
entomologist who now works as a 
lift operator. 

We saw a world-renowned 
oncologist who is unable to pursue 
his research and is denied contact 
wife colleagues in the West. We 
saw a former medical neuro- 
scientist of the highest calibre, 
who regards himself as fortunate 
to have a job solely reading 
electroencephalographs. 

Our view, as physicians and 
researchers, was feat these people 
were being denied the chance to 
pursue careers which reflect their 
ability and training while being 
refused permission to leave the 
country and continue their re- 
search in the West 

It is also our view that the trust 
which is a necessary premise for 
talks on mutual disarmament 
cannot be developed until fee 
Soviet Union respects fee basic 
rights of its citizens.

Barrages and birds 

From the Director General of the 
Royal Society for the Protection of 
Birds 

Sir, Your article, “Consortium 
puts £5 bn Severn barrage plan to 
Energy Secretary** (July 9), raises 
the spectre of massive engineering 
works in some of fee nation’s 
most important estuaries. Whilst 
the Severn may be the leading 
contender, fee article mentions 
the Solway Firth, Morecambe Bay 
and the Wash. There has been 
recent Press speculation about 
banaging fee Mersey. . 

Because of Britain’s geographi- 
cal position and equitable winter 
climate its estuaries are of great 
importance to wildfowl and wad- 
ing birds. Huge numbers spend 
the winter there or use them as 
“refuelling** sites during their 
longdistance migrations. 


Governments have long 
recognised the need to act collec- 
tively to protect migratory species. 
The UK is one of 30 or more states 
party to the Ramsar Convention 
on fee Conservation of Wetlands 
of Internationa] Importance, and 
is bound by the requirements of 
EC Directive 79/409 on fee 
Conservation of Wild Birds. Our 
estuaries also qualify for protec- 
tion under these agreements. 

It would be reassuring to learn 
that Messrs Ridley and 
Waldegrave were at least putting 
the conservation case to Mr Peter 
Walker before any decisions are 
reached. 

Yours faithfully.

On the gravy train 

From Mr Peter Lewis 
Sir, Britain in fee 1980s is 
increasingly indistinguishable 
from fee looking-glass world. 
According to Spectrum (July 8 ) a 
new graduate aged 21 has accepted 
a starting salary of £16,000 in 
hanking and is looking forward to 
“quick promotion and high pay”. 

To obtain a comparable salary, 
those responsible for producing 
graduates have first to achieve 
promotion to fee grade of senior 
lecturer, which is notoriously diffi- 
cult and slow today because of the 
rigid quota system and intense 
competition, and then to advance 
several points up the appropriate 
salary stale, something many dons 
cannot hope to do until over 50 
after at least 25 years of service. 

Unless they are lucky enough to 
obtain a chair, also notoriously 
difficult, they can look forward to 
a maximum salary of well under 
£19,000. Evidently England is no 
longer a nation of shopkeepers, 
but of accountants and bankas.

Jury challenge 

From Mr Robert Clothier 
Sir, Peremptory challenge in jury 
trials may well be “a tad thing” 
but hardly for some of fee reasons 
adduced in your editorial today 
(July 10). To remark that fee 
“basic principle” is that juries 
should be random and not that 
they should be representative is to 
confuse fee means wife fee end. 
As in opinion polls, we take 
random samples as our best hope 
of obtaining representative ones. 

The smaller fee sample in 
relation to the size of fee popula- 
tion (and twelve is a very small 
sample) fee more of a lottery the 
process becomes. So long as we 
prefer fee lady to be holding scales 
rather than dice we must be 
concerned that juries are repre- 
sentative. 

The working class and the 
young are, for various reasons, 
under-represented on the electoral 
rolls. Attempting to correct this 
primary skew on the court-room 
floor is not necessarily an abuse.

Present steps 
for past’s future 


Of 


From the Chief Executive 
English Heritage and others 
Sir. In 1984 fee Government 
published a consultation paper on 
the ecclesiastical exemption. This 
is the system whereby a listed 
ecclesiastical building is exempt 
from most of the controls that 
apply to secular buildings which 
are listed as being of special 
architectural or historic interest. 

Many bodies responded to feat 
consultation paper and the 
Government’s decisions are 
awaited. The issues involved are 
complex and whatever is decided 
is unlikely to find universal favour 
— not even amongst fee sig- 
natories of this letter. 

But there is one step which we 
believe fee Government could 
and should take which would 
receive wide approval; feat is to 
end fee system whereby it is 
possible for an Anglican church 
which is no longer required for 
ecclesiastical use to be demolished 
without listed building consent 
provided that the demolition fol- 
lows a scheme under the Pastoral 
Measure 1983. The Church of 
England alone enjoys this right: all 
other churches must obtain listed 
building consent. There is an 
opportunity for fee Government 
to make a modest step now by 
introducing or accepting an 
amendment to the Housing and 
Planning Bill designed to make 
this necessary change.

From Mr Richard Griffith 
Sir v The Select Committee on the 
Environment has today com- 
pleted taking oral evidence for its 
inquiry into historic buildings and 
ancient monuments. What sub- 
jects deserve to be included in its 
final report? 

May I suggest feat one should be 
fee administration of listed build- 
ings? The Department of the 
Environment admits that it does 
not monitor fee eflect of listed 
building control, and does not 
even know how many individual 
buildings are subject to control. It 
is curious, to say fee least, that fee 


authority charged wife overseeing 
adn 


the administration of the

HIs shroud the suow 

From Mr William Summers 
Sir, Sandy Irvine, who died wife 
George Mallory in 1924, was my 
mother’s younger brother. His 
memory was held in some rev- 
erence by us afl, and for this 
reason my first inclination is to 
agree with Dr Warren (July 10) 
who is only fee most recent of a 
long list expressing the same 
opinion — until I consider fee man 
himself and what he might have 
thought. 

He died before his 21st birth- 
day, but into feat short life had 
packed more than most. He 
captained Shrewsbury to win the 
Elsenbam Cup at the 1919 Peace 
Regatta, was president of fee 
Oxford University Boat Club, 
suggested improvements to the 
Maxim guo breachbtocfc and was 
working on an early form of 
automatic pilot for aircraft. 

I am sure that Sandy, wife his 
inquiring mind, would be happy 
that there is still interest ana 
speculation over their achieve- 
ment and would not think of the 
proposed search as desecration. 
The finding of a camera wife 
viable films, or even evidence 
from position of remains, might 
finally close fee saga one way or 
fee other. 1 wish fee Americans 
every success.

Grassroots godfathers 

From Miss L A. Zaina 

Sir, It is strange to find in The 
Times an article (July 7) which 
purveys the kind of quasLro- 
mantic view of the Mafia which, 
to whatever extent it may . have 
applied to the onoraia societti, 
bears no relationship to the ruth- 
less criminal organization of the 
present day. 

Doubt is cast on the Mafia’s 
connection with heroin traffick- 


ing, whereas the judicial investiga- 
tions since 1982 have shown 
conclusively that it has provided 
fee new bosses wife assets reck- 
oned in billions of dollars invested 
in real estate mid business under- 
takings both at home and abroad. 

When General Carlo Alberto 
dalle Oiiesa. the new Prefect of 
Palermo appointed specifically to 
combat fee Mafia, was murdered 


toother wife his pregnant young 
wife. Err 


Conflict Study No 179: The South 
African Crisis: Time for Inter- 
national Action, mentioned by 
Professor Gutteridge on July 1 5, was 
publish ed by ' fee Institute for the 


. Emmanuela. on September 
3, 1 982. a rough notice at the place 
of assassination proclaimed: 
“Here died fee hope of honest 
citizens of Palermo” 

That death was a turning point 
in fee determination of fee central 
Government lo prosecute by ev- 

nou/Ar jfk war 




against fee Mafia, a war in whicb 
since 1982 not only investigating 
magistrates and policemen but 
also innocent members of fee 
public (including women and 
children) have been in the firing 
line. 

If fee Mafia’s ramifications 
make its suppression well nigh 
impossible, as Christopher 
Duggan suggests, at least its 
vulnerability has been made 
manifest and the breakdown of 
“omfrtd” (unwillingness to giye 
evidence) holds out some promise 
for the future. 

Yours sincerely.

THE INSURRECTION IN 
NEW ZEALAND. 


(F tom a Correspondent) 


DUNEDIN, OTAGO, May 18. 

. . Another of those murderous 
attacks which characterized the 

opening period of the last Taranaki 
war has just occurred at Taranaki, 
resulting in the deaths of two 
officers and six men of the 57th 
Regiment. Thor were escorting 
some provision carts, and, sur- 
prised by a Maori ambuscade, were 
shot down and tomahawked, their 
bodies being afterwards horribly 
mutilated . . . 

Intelligence was received in 
Auckland that a large party of 


Waikato natives were marching 
down to Taranaki, and General 
Cameron, who had only left the 
latter place a few 
at once hurried back in the 
steamer. He did not arrive at all too 
soon. Matters were looking decid- 
edly ugly; all aorta of rumours were 
flying about, and it was considered 
advisable to take extra precautions. 
On the 25th of April a warning was 
sent to the Governor by some 
friendly natives that the rebels 
intended to commence fighting on 
the day but one following (Mon- 
day). Similar intimations had been 
conveyed to the settlers Kvi 
outside the town, and they were 
in a great state of trepidation, 
many of them coming into town. 
His Excellency chose to disregard 
this warning, and even 
endeavoured to induce the settlers 
to go back to their farms as they 
had nothing to fear. It was a most 
fortunate thing that this advice 
was not taken, and that it had not 
been necessary to send out small 
detached patties of military during 
that day, as it was afterwards 
disco vered that an amhnah of three 
armed parties of rebel natives bad 
been stationed on the toad between 
New Plymouth and Tataraimaka, 
with the avowed intention of 
cutting off the 5rst Europeans who 
should pass that way. Still, singular 
as it may seem, although the 
threatening attitude of the natives 
was publicly known and comment- 
ed on by the Taranaki journals, no 
steps were taken by the Govern 
ment — or, at any rate, only very 
imperfect steps — to guard against 
the danger, it would appear that 
his Excellency would not believe 
the Maories intended to fight, and 
he was determined, if possible, not 
to be the first to strike a blow. The 
result is soon told, and a melan- 
choly tale it is. Two escort parties 
were passing along the 
Tataraimaka road on Monday, the 
4th of May, when they were fired 
into by some natives in ambush. 
One of the escort parties managed 


to retreat in safety, but the officers 
and men composing the other 
parly were, with one exception, 
shot down, and their bodies after- 
wards brutally mutilated . . . 

Of course, it is impossible to 
prefect what will be the result of| 
the late outrage. By the last 
advices, a large body of Waikato 
natives were marching down to 
Taranaki, and if the Governor 
should find it necessary to proceed 
to hostilities it is very probable 
that the whole native population 
south of Auckland will be drawn 
into the struggle. 

The Waitara, that old bone of | 
contention, has been given up by 
the Governor. This I have on the 
most undoubted authority. An 
investigation has been 
quietly for some time, and I 
his Excellency baa decided 
banding over the disputed 
the rival native claimants to settle 
the matter among themselves . . .

Lord Crawshaw of Aintree. 
OBE. the Labour MP for 
Toxteth, Liverpool, who 
joined the Social Democratic 
Party in 1981, and who last 
year became its first nominee 
to take a seat in- the House of 
Lords, died yesterday. He was 
68 . 

Richard “Dick” Crawshaw 
was bom on September . 25, 
1917, and educated at Pem- 
broke College, Cambridge, 
and London University, 
where he studied law. A varied 
early career saw him succes- 
sively as a clerk (1931-33), an 
engineer (1933-36) and a theo- 
logical student (1936-39). 

With the outbreak of war he 
served, first, in the Royal 
Artillery and, later, . in the 
Parachute Regiment with the 
rank of lieutenant-colonel. 
Free fail parachuting was to 
remain an abiding interest and 
led Crawshaw to the Territori- 
al .Army in 1954 where, for 
three years, he commanded 
12/I3lh Battalion, The Para- 
chute Regiment. 

After the war, he returned to 
Pembroke before being called 
to the Bar of the Inner Temple 
in 1948. As a banister, he was 
attached to the Northern Cir- 
cuit. From 1948 to 1965 he 
was a Labour member of 
Liverpool City CbunciL 

In 1964. he was elected 
Labour MP for Toxteth. Liv-- 
erpool a seat he was to 
represent with distinction for 
over two decades. Devoted to. 
the Army (even in the 1960s 
he was still known as 
“colonel”) and a fearless op- 
ponent of unilateralism.

Lieutenant-Colonel Peter 
Boughey. OBE, whose distin- 
guished service with the Spe- 
cial Operations Executive 
during the Second World War 
marked him as a man of 
outstanding courage and self- 
reliance, died on June 20. He 
was 74. 

He also enjoyed a career in 
industry at home and abroad, 
both before and after the war. 

Edward Peter Fletcher 
Boughey was educated at the 
Imperial Service College, from 
which, characteristically, he 
removed himself at the age of 
16 to work in a bank and to 
travel abroad. 

His business career began in 

the Middle East where he he was brought back home as 
represented a Sudanese firm^ part of an exchange of dipio-' 
during Mussolini's wars in" mats via Spain. • 



ganized clandestine - missions^ 


Ethiopia. Here, he contracted 
tuberculosis and was com- 
pelled to return home. 

He later found himself recu- 
perating m the mountains of 
Yugoslavia when war broke 
out and he was swiftly incor- 
porated in the staff of the 
British Embassy in Belgrade, 
where his specialized local 
knowledge proved invaluable. 
When the Axis powers invad- 
ed, Boughey was interned; but 


He was then posted to SOE 
headquarters where he rapidly 
rose to prominence in :the 
Balkan section. He thus be- 
came intimately involved in 
secret negotiations aimed at 
bringing Hungary out of the 
war. These came to an abrupt 
end when, on March 19, 1944, 
German troops occupied the 
country. 

From' bases in southern 
Italy, Boughey personally or- 


into Hungary. With two othef 
officers and a wireless opera^ 
tor. be parachuted inw. -to- 
country, but the whole grouj^ 
was captured!' . " '* ?? ’; m ■

was not broken and heeyentu^ - 
ally escaped from a" PoW 
camp in . Silesia, maJdn&W: ,-. 
way eastWards to the RussianT , 

lines.' .. • ; ; : vv -. 

After the war, he spent some- 
time in the foreign service. Hi^: 
last post was Stockholm^ .-, 
where he served as ^rsf . 
secretary. .

He then spent a fruitful - sixf 7 
years as chief buyer for the' ' 
British Steel Corporation be-; . 
fore poor health forced hira to 
retire in 1973. . £ 

A man of ebullient humour 
and steadfast character^ 
Boughey was a hard bargainer, 
no doubt, but one who insist-, 
ed that in a contract both sides 
must be satisfied.

DAME RUTH BUCKLEY

Trinity Term al Rugby School 
ended on July 11 The Multiple 
Sclerosis sponsored walk raised 
more than £15,000. The athlet- 
ics team won the Cholmeley 
Shield for rhe fourth consec- 
utive year. Town House is being |

concerts by the Royal Phil- 
harmonic Orchestra and the 
choir of King's College. Cam- 
bridge. The Advent Term will 
begin on Sunday, September 14. 


MrC. W. Shelford writes: • 
You reported today (July 
14) the death of the Hon 
Dame Ruth Buckley, DBE 
Very many people ail over 
Sussex will mourn the loss of 
Miss Ruth, or “The Dame”, as 
she was universally known. 

In the 1950s and 1960s she 
was one of the two or three 
most influential figures in 
local affairs in Sussex. 

As the first woman chair- 
man of the East Sussex Coun- 
ty Council, a most influential 


member of the South East 
Metropolitan Hospital Board, 
and a part-time member of the 
Local Government Boundary 
Commission for England 
1 958-1 966,. she was consulted 
by everyone with local 
problems. 

Her great love was for 
children and perhaps what she 
would - have wished to be 
remembered for most was her 
outstanding service for the 
Heritage Craft Schools and 
Hospital at Chailey. 

This famous hospital was in 


due course taken over under 
the National Health Acts from 
Dame Grace Kimntins,^ its 
founder. 

Great difficulties- arose 
thereafter due to the separfr 
tion of the school and hospital 
and the changes in the pattern 
of illness and disease. • 

Dame Ruth, with her 
knowledge of both local goy* 
em merit and the -hospital 
board, guided the . hospital 
through this difficult .transi? 
tion to the magnificent institute 
tion it is today. * „

Although the North Sea is 
going through a “relatively sta- 
ble phase in its geological 
development”, that could be a 
temporary phenomenon because 
of past dynamic changes. 

These are the conditions of a 
team of researchers from Lower 
Saxony, who, under the auspices 
of the West German Research 
Association (DFG), have been 
studying the evolution of the

To do that, Dr HaogArgStraf 
and his colleagues sank 390 
cores in the Cenman sector of the 
sea. to analyse the sedimentary 
sequences found just beta* the 
sea bed, under a thin layer of 
sand. 

Some of these cores corned a 
depth of 20 metres , the majority 
from three to five. Brought to die 
surface, they provided a detailed 
picture of die alternating ice and 
floods characteristic of the Ice 
Ages.

Buchner famously offered a 
critique of self-justifying ter- 
ror applying to every such 
upheaval from [789 to Pol 
Pot's Cambodia; and located 
Danton in the midst of it as a 
man who fatally turns his back 
on virtuous carnage in favour 
of ordinary human appetite. 

In the Polish piece the 
values are reversed. The main 
characters still conform to 
their prototypes. Danton re- 
mains a great lusty bull, 
practising and proclaiming the 
rights ofindividual freedom. 
Robespierre remains a reptil- 
ian guardian of the public will. 


Whereas Buchner fatalisti- 
cally depicts ihe revolution as 
a sickness that has gripped 
mankind, the Polish author 
presents it as an affair of the 
human will. Robespierre's 
speech to this effect is the 
most eloquent defence of ter- 
ror I have ever hear. Danton 
himself is likewise trans- 
formed, from an unresisting 
victim advancing to the guillo- 



Impass toned oratory, volcanic defiance: lan McDntnmd (left) and Brian Cox as Robespierre and Danton 


tine, to a trapped animal 
fighting for bis lift?. 


As that may suggest, neither 
figure is belittled by the Polish 
viewpoint: the dialectic be- 
tween them remains as urgent 
as in Buchner. And, when I 
first saw the play in Warsaw 
iO years ago, Andrzej Wajda 
had converted both stage and 
auditorium into a single 
courtroom. 

At the Barbican the play 


appears in a version by Pam 
Gems which — with what 
faithfulness I cannot guess — 
restores it to a world of 
historical melodrama. The 
great tirades and tete-a-tetes 
come through with full power. 
But they are surrounded by 
group scenes from which it is 
hard to withhold the stock 
comparison to schools history 
broadcasting. The personages 
form into their separate mo- 
tions for momentously blood- 


less exchanges. “Thanks to 
Camille, I have the mind of 
every man in Paris. Oh, hello 
Camilla" Shades of Ldu 
Garde Peach; though even he 
would have drawn the line at 
such prison dialogue as: “I've 
been thinking." “Well, that 
makes a change." 

Ron Daniels's production is 
nobly set (by Farrab) in a vast 
chamber glinting with tar- 
nished gold, where the 
mouldings seem encrusted 


with dried blood. History 
could fitly be re-enacted here, 
but the present rough and 
ready crowd scenes and 
undercharacterized support- 
ing performances give it small 
chance. 

The central duet is another 
matter. Brian Cox's Danton, 
first seen grossly slumbering 
to the disgust of his child 
bride, proceeds to a perfor- 
mance of sustained volcanic 
defiance, from which he

If Carnegie's acoustics suffer in 
the slightest, however, it will not be 
for lack of prudential foresight on 
the pan of the architects. The 
acoustical consultant, Abe Melzer, 
has been accorded virtually dicta- 
torial powers and, at every step, 
maintenance of the hall's fabled 
sound has been the prime consider- 
ation. In feet, the architects go so far 
as to promise acoustical improve- 
roents, at least for certain' seating 
locations and. though one has learnt 


to be wary of such claims, there 
seems ground for optimism. 

The work entered its most crucial 

S hase this spring when, immediate- 
i following a jazz concert by the 
Don Shirley Trio, the hall closed for 
seven months and work began on 
the restoration of the auditorium 
itself, to take place concurrently 
with renovation of the building's 
exterior. Already completed seg- 
ments of the S50 million master 
plan include restoration of the 
facade and entrance of Carnegie 
Redial Hall; conversion of Andrew 
Carnegie's old Masonic Chapter 
Room into the Kaplan Space, an 
acoustically adaptable room the size 
of the main stage, for rehearsal 
performance and recording; and 
much work on the building's ' 
plumbing, heating and ventilating 
systems. 

Inside the auditorium the guiding 
philosphy is, in the words of the 


corporation president Isaac Stern, 
who spearheaded the campaign to 
save the hall from scheduled demo- 
lition 26 years ago, to “add nothing, 
only restore’’. There will be no 
attempt to modernize. Everything 
will receive a fresh coat of paint, and 
new seats will be installed. The 
fabric of these seats and the re- 
upholstered railings has been scru- 
pulously tested to assure sound- 
absorption properties that match 
those of the old material The 
original wood floor, ax one point 
covered with vinyl in a cost-cutting 
move, will be restored. 

This last, of course, should pro- 
vide some of what Stem calls “an 
even richer mix of the basic 
Carnegie sound”. But the biggest 
surprise to come out of the recent 
flurry of announcements was the 
description of the current state of 
the acoustical shell on the stage 
itself and of plans to restore it It 


turns out that the “leaser" curtain 
and baffles banging above the stage 

— which many of use have taken for 
granted, assuming perhaps that they 
served some acoustical purpose — 
are merely cosmetic; they actually 
detract from the sound, but hide 
gaping holes in the upper part of the 
shell The damage was inflicted in 
the mid- 1 940s — a blissful time, 
apprently, when acoustical wealth 
was simply there to be squandered 

— to provide choice camera-angles 
for the filming of the movie 
Carnegie Hall, and never repaired. 

So the sound we so treasure today 
is not by any means the ideal 
Carnegie sound, and real improve- 
ment should be possible. Of coarse 
we have long known that the sonic 
impact is fullest in the higher 
reaches — say, the front row of the 
lop hakony — but that is true in 
many houses. Still the discrepancy 
may be inordinate here, since the 


Most changes external to the 
auditorium are being carefully insu- 
lated so as to avoid potentiial 
detriment to ’he acoustics. (Air- 
conditioning ducts, for example, are 
suspended from hangers.) Others 
wilt actually prove beneficial — 
most notably, the heavy acoustical 
outside doors, to reduce ambient 
noise. Unfortunately, the rumble of 
the subway cannot be eliminated, 
but even there the hall managers are 
negotiating with the Metropolitan 
Transit Authority, and are hopeful 
of some unspecified improvement. 


The delayed new concert season 
will begin officially — too late, alas, 
to accommodate the autumn tour of 
the Berlin Philharmonic, which 
may go to. the Metropolitan Opera 
House instead — with a concert by 
the semi-resident Orchestra of St 
Luke’s on December 16. following, 
we can be sure, some sort of pre- 
opening gala.

Victor Willing 
Whitechapel 


CLS/Hickox 
Town Hall/Radio 3 


Victor Willing has had a 


Curious career even by the 
' standards of the British art 
world, where it would be very 
difficult to define the norm. 
He was at the Slade from 1949 
to 1954, and almost immedi- 
ately made his mark with a 
number of highly expressive 
paintings in the prevalent 
manner of the day. Or man- 
ners. perhaps one should say, 
since like every young artist he 
was finding his own race by 
trying on masks — the mask of 
discreet Euston Road realism, 
&e mask of a rather more 
generalized figurative style, 
tiie mask of symbolism. Then 
in 1 957 he took himself off to 
Portugal.' where he married 
Ihe painter Paula R^o 
apparently gave up painting 
altogether for some 1 7 years. 
But in 1974 he came back, and 
began painting again with 
renewed confidence in a per- 
sonal style to which, with 
some development, he has 
adhered ever since. 

The” retrospective of his 
work, at the Whitechapel Art 
Gallery until Sunday, tellingly 
isolates the material from his 
earlier period in a little house 
bv itself ft is true that in more 
senses than the merely literal 
it stands by itself, but careful 
scrutiny will yield dues to tne 
shape of things to come. 

There are pictures which 
suggest Willing’s later, almost 
obsessive interest in assorted 
objects left randomly in some 
indeterminate space which 
confers on them a mysterious

Michael Berkeley has the rath- 
er predous gift. which perhaps 
he shares only with Robin 
Holloway among prominent 
English composers, of not 
being embarrassed by the 
lyrical Romantic impulse — 
or, maybe more exactly, of 
being embarrassed but still 


respect, and which gives him 
access to worlds of feeling that 
might appear somewhat re- 
mote, like the world of mea-

His music has an emotional 
directness which commands 


What must also have helped 
in gaining entry to that world 
was the knowledge that he was 
writing for Heather Harper, 
who possesses within her 
voice both the steady assur- 
ance and the vulnerability of 
the verse. She has, of course, a 
tone of ripe, even autumnal 
maturity these days, but she 
approached the work freshly, 
openly and daringly. This was 


not a famous singer come to 
distinguish a new work with 
her presence, but someone 
taking on conscientiously a 
challenge to musical tech- 
nique and expressive res- 
ponse. 

It was altogether a perfor- 
mance in the spirit of the work 
itself: any lack of conviction 
was all in the accompaniment, 
played by the City of London 
Sinfonia under Richard 
Hickox, for some of the 
textures were smudgy with 
mistimed entries and the 
range of feeling was muted. 

Future performances will 
have to accept, I would guess, 
that Berkeley takes his chosen 
poems as absolutely authentic 
his work is almost an exercise

emerges with appropriate am- 
biguity as a windbag of heroic 
proportions. Ian McDiarmid 1 s 
Robespierre, a puny, shriv- 
elled figure, delivering his 
most inhuman decrees in a 
mild legalistic tone and rising 
to a zenith of impassioned 
oratory on the theme of 
democratic terror, is a figure 
to remember and take warning 
from. 


In adapting Chaiom Anskfs 
1920 Yiddish play for the 
f980 Avignon Festival Bruce 
Myers shed the title’s definite 
article (a modish move) as 
well as the bulk of the cast (an 
expedient move), and com- 
pressed the original's five acts 
into one of 90 minutes' dura- 
tion for two players, himself 
and Josianne Stoleru. 

The piece went on to win an 
“Obie" in New York and an 
international hail of critical 
plaudits — not least in these 
columns, which observed of 
the brief 1982 run at this 
address, “London is lucky to 
have seen this production". 

Never having seen the thing 
before, I cannot tell how it has 
evolved In the interim; it is, 
however, easily the best piece 
of pure theatre I have seen for 
weeks. 

This is due largely to Mr 
Myers’s bravura imperson- 
ation of a hatful of roles — 
husband. Talmud student, old 
peasant woman, bride's father 
and exorcist — which (with 
respect to the admirably fluent 
and emotive Miss Stoleru) 
makes much of the play a one- 
man show rather than ihe two- 
hander advertised. The ad- 
apter's production combines 
respectful ritual with marital 
tenderness, and features one 
world-class Jewish joke. 

The story' itself concerns the 
demonic possession of a 
young woman, in the middle 
of her wedding ceremony, by 
the dybbuk or wandering soul 
of a Talmud student who died 
suddenly in the synagogue 
after uttering Manichean sen- 
timents (and Mr Myers's de- 
mise, keeling over backwards 
in a straight-backed chair, is a 
daring and flawless technical 
demonstration). 

Her elaborate exorcism at 
the hands of a cabbalist con- 
veys all the primordial fear of 
the undead that one could 
wish to encounter on a steamy 
evening in Islington, and, 
while much of the mystical 
and scriptural content goes 
over the head of the average 
Gentile atheist, there is plenty 
here to chill all blood-groups.

in feminist rehabilitatory criti- 
cism. The keynote is struck in 
the first and longest song, 
setting one of £B. Browning's 
sonnets from the Portuguese, 
“I thought once how Theo- 
critus had sung" where the 
awakening of love is sudden, 
but slantingly sustained in the 
music with rapturous repeti- 
tions of high F sharp: this is 
Messiaen’s love key, and the 
piece contains other remind- 
ers of his ecstatic sensuous- 
ness, as well as of the reality of 
Jove in Mahler and Britten.

Berkeley has ihe courage, 
justified as it turns out, to set 
well known lines: "How do I 
love thee? Let me count the 


Rossetti's “A Birthday" 
provides a lively interlude, 
and there is then another 


ways. 

This takes up the work's 
basic musical theme, which is 
itself a song of awakening 
love, reaching up through an 
anguished minor ninth and 
then up again through a 
bright, dear fifth. It is a simple 
idea, and it is simply present- 
ed. But, as with the other 
simple truths of the piece, one 
believes in it.

reaches its foil .splendour only 
in the works of the Seventies, 
when he makes his way by a

Hope of 
£50m 
inSDI 
research 

By Our Defence 
Correspondent 

British industry could re- 
ceive another £50 million of 
work on the US “Star Wars” 
research programme by the 
autumn of next year, accord- 
ing to Dr Stanley Orman, 
director-general of the Minis- 
try of Defence’s Strategic De- 
fence Initiative Participation 
Office. 

Dr Orman said yesterday 
that he thought British in- 
volvement in the programme 
could build up until it was 
running at a rale of $200 
million (£135 million) a year. 

In June, Mr George Youn- 
ger, Secretary of state for 
Defence, announced in Wash- 
ington that Britain had won 
two SDI contracts worth more 
than $14 million. However, 
Dr Orman said these were 
initial contracts and they con- 
tained options which, if the 
contracts went well, could 
raise their value to about $35 
million. 

This would be roughly the 
value of an SDI contract plus 
options recently awarded to a 
West German company. 

He said it had been inevita- 
ble that there would be a slow 
build-up of orders after the 
signing last December of a 
memorandum of understand- 
ing between the British and 
United States governments on 
British participation. 

However, there were anoth- 
er three contracts with a 
combined value of almost $ 10 
million which Dr Orman 
hoped would be signed within 
the next month or two, and 
there were others further 
down the pipeline. 

He would be disappointed if 
British companies did not 
gain $75 million worth of 
work from the 1987 bidding 
round. This would be equiva- 
lent to about 2 per cent of the 
likely level of US spending on 
SDI in that year. 

Companies would be able to 
start bidding for work from 
the 1987 propamine in 
Octoberand the United States 
was organizing briefings for 
industry to tell them what 
contracts were available.

That sin king feeling: Sir Ian Perdval momentarily windsurfing before taking the plnnge again into the Thames yesterday (Photographs: Tim Bishop) 


By Robin Yotmg 

The former Prime Minister, Mr 
James Callaghan, came dose to being 
a candidate for the stomach pomp 
yesterday, when Parliament took time 
off from directing the ship of state to 
go messing about on the river. 

Mr Callaghan., who had joined a 
Labour eight taking part in the 
Speaker's Summer Regatta, In aid of 
St Margaret's Church, Westminster, 
fell in the river when the lighter 
returning him to the shore after his 
race proved overloaded and swamped. 

Mr Callaghan had the consolation 


of being able to accept a prize awarded 
to the crew in recognition of their 
stylish performance, which confound- 
ed the prediction made in the form 
guide by the veteran parliamentary 
bookie, Mr Ian Mikardo. Mr 
Mikardo wrote that with Mr Calla- 
ghan on board the. boat could never go 
foster than “steady as she goes”. 

The 100 or so crews turned out in 
lawyers' wigs, mob hats and Victorian 
bathing costumes, firemen's helmets, 
chefs' hats, ami a variety of sponsors' 
bunting. 

As politicians wifi, the crews 
elected to go with the tide when 


racing. The difficulty about was 
that to reach the starting line they Had 
to row against the current, and that 
proved too much for several boats. 

The first race was half an hour late 
bat won in fine style by a crew called 
Currie's Men (“with a chance”, 
according to Old Mik, “unless Edwi- 
na breaks stroke midstream to issue a 
pressrelease”). 

The second race (an hoar later) set 
the tone for the day when Mrs Linda 
Chalker, Minister of State at the 
Foreign Office, anting an all-Tory 
crew called Foreign Affairs, resorted 
to the surprising sanction ®f steering 


her boat into a collision with the race 
leaders, handing victory to a scratch 
eight called the Hooray Henleys. 

Between races, and daring them. 
Sir Ian Perdval, Tory MP for 
Southport, attempted to windsurf the 
Thames, t umbling and drifting two 
yards before colliding, 

“1 am delighted,” declared Canon 
Trevor Beeson, the Speaker’s chap- 
lain and Sector of St Margaret's, 
standing on a table on the parHamer 
tary terrace with his sandeiled feet ini 
a puddle of lager and Pimms. “I 
understand the event will raise at 
least £50,000. It is quite splendid.” 


There were many things 
missing .from yesterdays 
Commons debate on South 
Africa; the well advertised 
rebellion of discontented 
backbench Tories, for in- 
stance, the fierce onslaught 
from the Opposition and, 
-indeed, much representation 
from any of the parties. 

The Commons was hold- 
ing a regatta, and the terrace 
was crowded with MPs on a 
brief holiday from burning 
moral indignation. 

• -Those who did appear 
inside the chamber were sim- 
flarfy affected. The weather 
had made them moderate. It 
was too hot to do much more 
than shout “Oh?”' from a 
semi-recumbent posture. 

No less a ranter than Mr 
Denis Healey, the shadow 
Foreign Secretary, came on 
like Sir Geoffrey Howe. And 
Sir Geoffrey himself deliv- 
ered a Foreign Office depart- 
mental brief with all the fun 
and colour left- out 

Mr Healey began by detail- 
ing all the damage that Mrs 
Thatcher -had done to civili- 
zation by her criticism of 
economic sanctions against 
South. Africa. The European 
Community, the Common- 
wealth, the .Queen — aQ the 
causes, which he and the 
Labour Party hold most dear ! 
— had been pul at risk. - 

Why so? Mr Healey's ex- 
planation of this dedicated 
destruction was that the Tory 
. Party gets vast sums from 
companies with interests in 
South Africa. It was. he 
declared with a fine sinister 
flourish, more than a billion 
pounds last year. 

“What on earth , is he 
talkingabout?” saidan aston- 
ished Tory voice, probably 
belonging to the party trea- 
surer. Several Tories took out 
pocket calculators hopefully;.. 
They might pull off another 
election yet. . 

“That is, Mr Speaker, a 
million pounds last year”, 
continued the former Chan- 
cellor hurriedly, muttering 
about the foshion in dealing 
. in huge statistical figures. 

That error, as errors do, 
woke up the opposite bench- 
es. So when the shadow 
Foreign Secretaiy launched 
into an attadc on Mrs Thatch- 
er for opposing the abolition 


of slavery in the 1830s (or for 
being the sort of person who- 
would have done so if she had 
been around then), they were : 
ready. . 

“She quotedWil&erfbrce” 
said Mr Healey* \\r .• 

“She also quoted 

Crossman” shouted back a 
Tory, reliving great moments 
in pariiameniaryKtefraie; Mr 
Healey decided to overtook 

the matter entirely; 

Eventually he readied his 
own solution which- was ; a 
“swift and strict" padage bf 
comprehensive mandatory 
sanctions that would “bring 
matters to a head quiddy". 
He wanted, for instance, to 
de-mdrietize gold so that the 
central banks could seU off 
their gold reserves,- depress 
the world price and . bring 
Pretoria to its knees. :r ~.v 

Sir Geoffrey arrived atfffe 
despatch box to; quieten the 
sleeping MPs. He began by 
responding to Mr Healey’s 
proposals. They- werejbesaid 
mildly, a hyperbolic and fan- 
ciful course of action. The 
shadow Foreign - Secretary 
bad been guilty ofcsdf-rjgfa- 
teousness. \ _ . . 

1 Thebig question, of course, 1 
was whether or pbt - the 
Government wonkL impose 
further . sanctions if President 
Botha failed to release Nelson 
Mandela or to lift the tea on 
the African: National £bn~ 
.gross. Mr Kin nock: himself 
1 demanded to be told tiro With 
no equivocation. - -v- 

"'As Foreign Seaebny, of 
course, Sir- Geoffrey.-cos® 
not tightly renounce equivo- 
cation. He promised that, fe 
tte circumstances described, 
“consideration wfiUje ghren 
to the imposition of further 
measures.”, 

; So there would be sanc- 
tions, after all? WdL not 
neobssarily. For Sir Geoffrey 
was also insistent that .ftbere 
was no • concept . of 
antbmatidty”: about frnifaer 
measures. • . ’•••’: -v. 

. . ’ WHen he finally sat down, 
he had succeeded beyond his 
wildest - dreams. : Everything 
wasiperfectly unclear. . . 

. . Mr Heath delivered a brisk 

. warning of cteos if Sanctions 
were not imposed. If was not 
true that sanctions - had fs&ed 
in Rhodesia. They had am- 
ply taken a longtime to work.

‘too cheap 9 

By Our City Staff 

AE, the automotive compo- 
nent manufacturer, yesterday 
accused Turner & Newafl of 
trying to buy its technology on 
the cheap Turner & NewaU's 
part-share, pan-cash offer val- 
ues AE at £188 million. 

Sir John Collyear, AFs 
chairman, said his company's 
research and development 
spending was running at 2.6 
per cent of turnover, but at 
Turner & Newall it accounted 
for only 1.6 per cent of last 
year’s turnover. He was re- 
sponding to Turner & New- 
ail's formal offer document, 
which was released yesterday. 

Mr Colin Hope, who 
worked for AE for 11 years 
until 1975 but is now manag- 
ing director of Turner & 
Newall, said: “AE is not a dog. 
h is a tethered greyhound." 

He said there was little 
overlap of product and there 
would not be any laige ration- 
alization of production as a 
result of the bid. “This is not 
an issue of dosing factories 
and putting significant num- 
bers of people out of work" 

The terms of the bid are six 
shares plus £6 in cash for 
every 10 shares in AE, valuing 
each AE share at I90p. with 
Turner & NewalJ at 21 6p 
yesterday. AFs shares have 
remained above the bid price 
since the bid was launched last 
month and yesterday stood at 
233p. 

Turner* Newall is forecast- 
ing an increase in profits and 
earnings for this year and a 50 
per cent increase in dividend 
to not less than 7.5p. 

In a letter to shareholders, 
Sir John described Turner & 
Newall as a company beset by 
“inherent and serious 
problems". He said 40 per 
cent of its profits came from 
Africa. 

Turner & Newall said the 
acquisition would help com- 
petitiveness and market pene- 
tration, lead to savings in 
reasearch and development, 
administration, distribution 
and marketing, and give rise 
to tax savings of more than £6 
million a year for three years. 




Sir Philip Harris: £8 milium boost

things can never be the same

and he may wish to consider

Profits 
jump at 
Bulmer 

By Clare Dobie 

HP Bulmer, the Hereford 
cider maker, yesterday an- 
nounced plans to increase 
advertising on cider by nearly 
50 per cent to arrest the 
decline in sales. 

The company also an- 
nounced increased pretax 
profits of £1 1.8 million for the 
year to April 24, up from £7.52 
million. 

But most of the increase was 
accounted for by the absence 
of redundancy costs, which 
dented the previous year’s 
results by £3.34 million. In 
addition, £512,000 of excep- 
tional credits and an account- 
ing change, which added 
£21 8,000 to profits, contribut- 
ed to the increased profit 

Turnover was up from £155 
million lo£J71 million but in 
volume terms, cider sales fell 
by 4 per cent in line with the 
industry. Bulmer expects sales 
to pick up again this year. 

Buhner's total advertising 
budget is running at £8 mil- 
lion, of which £6.5 million, up 
from £4.5 million, will be 
spent on cider. 

The company says H wet 
comes the Chancellors deci- 
sion not to increase duty this 
year. 

Sales of Perrier, the mineral 
water which Bulmer distrib- 
utes, were up by 30 per cent to 
60 million bottles. 

The final dividend in- 
creased from 2.66p to 3.05p. 
to a total 3.3p, up from 4.9p. 


There was also speculation . 
that Standard's shareholders 
would pressure the bank into 
accepting a new bid from a 
foreign bank. 


Unit trust 
magazine 
to close 

By Lawrence Lever 

Unit Trust Management, 
the glossy magazine for unit 
trust intermediaries and man- 
agement companies launched 
in June last year by the 
Financial Times Business In- 
formation company, is to fold 
with losses of about £130,000. 

The magazine has suffered 
losses of between £8,000 and 
£10,000 on each of its 14 
issues in direct costs alone. Mr 
William Gibson, the publisher 
of FTBI magazines division, 
said yesteraay that disap- 
pointing advertising revenue 
and the limited growth pros- 
pects for the market account- 
ed for its downfeU. 

“There is a limit to the 
ammounl of advertising that 
people are prepared to direct 
to intermediaries," Mr Gib- 
son said. 

The management had con- 
sidered alternatives to closure, 
-such as broadening its cover- 
age beyond unit trusts, but 
none of these had provided a 
lifeline. 

A proposal has been put to 
the unions represented on the 
magazine that it should be 
discontinued. According to 
Mr Gibson the management 
does not intend to make 
anyone redundant, but plans 
to redeploy staff. 

Mr Gibson said that the 
magazine, which increased its 
cover price from £1.50 to 
£1.75 this year, had built up a 
circulation of about 10,500. 


TV-am ’s offer for sale was 
nearly 10 times oversub- 
scribed, with app ,; cations to- 
talling £1703 million chasing 
£1 5.8 million-worth of shares. 

Applications for between 
20 0 and 800 shares will go Into 
a weighted ballot for 200 
shares; for 1,000 to 3,000, 
there will be a ballot for 300;

400 shares; for 6,000 — 500; 
for 7,000 to 8,000 - 600: for 
9,000 and over — about 7.5 per 
cent of the application. 

Cleveland Securities, the 
licensed dealer, was quoting 
the shares on the grey market 
at I40p/145p yesterday, 
against an offer price of 130p. 
Cleveland said the shares have 
traded up to 152p/158p. 

Dealings start on the stock 
market next Wednesday.

Strong yen makes Japanese 
wages highest in world 


Tokyo (Renter) — The 
strong you has pushed Japa- 
nese wages to the top of the 
world table, wiping (rat the 
competitive advantage once 
beM by the country’s manufac- 
turers, according to industry 
analysts. 

Wages of Japanese workers 
have risen dramatically on a 


months. 

The rise is forcing many 
companies to abandon part of 
their domestic production and 
to set up new factories over- 
seas where cheaper labour 
costs keep production prices 

dow®* „„ . 


The yen’s surge has propelled 
the real monthly wage for 
Japanese workers in manufac- 
turing to $1,872 (£1,239) from 
$1,188 at the end of Septem- 
ber, according to the Labour 
M inis try. 

This surpasses $1,671 for 
American workers, who ased 
to be the best paid, $1380 for 
West German workers, and 
$1310 for British workers. 

Calculations based on 160 
yen to the dollar show Japa- 
nese wages are now about 
eight times higher than those 
in South Korea and about 63 
times those in Taiwan.

The sector has caught the 
imagination of the stock mar- 
ket. Analysts say profits could 
soar to £8 million this year, 
compared with just, over £2 
million last year. 

Mr David GrimUey of Phil- 
lips & Drew, the stockbroker, 
says: “The sector is experience 
mg a period of strong growth, 
largely reflecting the rapid 
expansion in the demand for 
temporary staff which has 
now overtaken the placement 
of permanent staff as the 
major source of agency 
income. 

“Whereas the demand for 
permanent staff placements 
has traditionally been subject 
to cyclical fluctuations, this is 
much less so for the demand 
for temporary staff. Indeed, 
the more uncertain the market 
background, the greater the 
benefit of flexibility provided 
by temps." 

Observers point out that 
although the direct wage costs 
of temporary workers may be 
up to 50 per cent more than 
for permament staff, it is 
nothing like this amount once 
the overall employment costs, 
such as National Insurance 
contributions, training, re- 
cruitment and paid holidays, 
are taken into consideration. 

A survey conducted by the 
Henley Forecasting Cfentre 
found that the hourly cost of 






The demand for temporary 
staff is not confined to the 
office, but extends to sub- 
contract staff in the engineer-

and computer areas.

ment and Employment Ser- 
vices which represents 1300

Manpower, which employs 
45.000 staff in Britain, found 
that nearly half the firms in 
the production and service 
areas had reported a rise in the 
use of temps over the last 
three years. 

Mr Tony Hoskins, 
Manpower's marketing man- 
ager, said firms enjoyed the 
flexibility provided by tempo- 
rary staffbut also needed them 


for specialist work. “Once we 
were looked upon as pulling 
people out of the workforce 
and redeploying them some- 
where else. Now we are recog- 
nized as suppliers of skilled 
part-time employees.

notice."

By Judith Huntley 


Town & City Properties, 
part of Sir Jeffrey Sterlings 
P&O Group, has increased the 


size of its out-of-town shop- 
ping centre planned near the 
Ml and M25 motorways in 
Hertfordshire to 900.000 sq ft 

The company has put in a 
new planning application to St 
Albans District Council for 

750.000 sq ft of retailing and 

150.000 sq ft of leisure space. 

The application is the result 

of increasing demand from- 
retailers for space in out-of- 
town centres. 

Mr Ron Jennings, Town & 
City’s joint managing director, . 
says: “We were being deluged 
with demand for space so we 
had another look at the figures 
and increased the size of the 
scheme. We could have gone 
up to one million sq ft of 
retailing but road capacity 
resulted in the 750,000 sq ft 
limit.” 

Town & City’s site, at 
Bricket Wood, part-owned by 
the Department of Transport, 
is in the Green Belt, which has 
already provoked uproar from 
conservationists. 

St Albans District Council 
is waiting for the retail impact 
study for Town & Gty’s 
smaller application. There will 
have to be new impact and 
traffic studies for the latest 
scheme, which has another 
1,500 parking spaces, bringing 
foe total to 5300. 

Town & City named 
Savacentre as its anchor ten- 
ant in foe original plans, but 
that name does not appear on 
the latest application. Town & 
City says it has stopped 
putting names to applications 
because of the fluid state of the 
market and the volume of 
demand. 

Quite apart from the issue 
of developing in the Green 
Belt, foe District Council is 
opposed to out-of-town retail- 
ing. Town & Country knows it 
will have a fight on its hands, 
probably involving a public 
inquiry. 

Its decision to increase the 
retail element of the scheme as 
well as foe leisure side is 
interesting considering experi- 
ence at the 2 million sq ft 
Metrocentre in Gateshead. 
Tyne and Wear. Mr John HalL 


But Mr Grimbley points 
out “Some people argue that 
foe current boom could 
change if a Labour Govern-

the developer, has reduced the 
amount of leisure space pro- 
posed at Gateshead to 70,000 
sq ft after market research 
showed that only a small 
amount would be financially 
viable. 

Mr Hall says: “A lot of 
leisure does not >ay. It is not 
as simple as I thought and 
there is not foe money at 
Gateshead foal I had original- 
ly believed to support a larger 
leisure development" 

A timely warning for those 
developers planning enor- 
mous retail and leisure 
schemes across foe country. 


The Town & City case is 
different as regards the leisure 
element of its Hertfordshire 
scheme. It is located in oneof 
foe most affluent areas in the 
South-east 

Its decision to increase the 
proposed leisure space result- 
ed from demand mom opera- 
tors wanting to build multi- 
screen cinemas, sports 
facilities and the like 

But as. Mr Jennings points 
out “We have to have regard 
'for that demand bur the exact 
nature of foe final scheme is 
likely to after as time goes on.” 

There is no doubt that the 
Gateshead Metrocenlre, seen 
by Mr Hall as the forerunner 
to other similar ventures, is a 
development success. The 
scheme is 95 per cent let and 
according to foe developer, an 
additional 250,000 sq ft of 
space could have been let . 

But foe finances of the 
Metrocentre add up on the 
strength of the capital allow- 
ances available in the enter- 


successful formula on other 
sites where there are no such 
fiscal advantages and compe- 
tition is great

foe host of other similar sized 
shopping . centres proposed

Two key issues are at stake 
here: the future of town centre

for Mr Hall to repeat his

changes in retailing and its 
shift to out-of-town; and 
whether development, of any 
kind, should be allowed in the

Arlington expects go-ahead 
for £ 60 m office scheme 


Arlington Securities, the 
business park developer 
which recently came to the 
market, is set to obtain foe 
Gty of London 
Corporation’s blessing for its 
£50 motion, 210,000 sq ft 
office development at 
Barnard’s Inn, Hotbom. 

The Corporation’s Court 
of Gmunoo Council is expect- 
ed today to approve foe 
scheme, which Arlington is 
undertaking with the 
Mercer’s Company. The 
scheme complies with foe 
City’s new plot ratio of 5:1 
and involves retaining the 
existing listed facades. 

The area roand Fleet 
Street and Holbont, which 
will soon cease to be home 
for foe newspaper industry, is 
seeing a boom in office 
rents as space in die Square 
Mile becomes increasingly 
hard to find in the build op to 
big bang. Arlington reports 
interest in the development 
already. 

• Mr Matthew 
Oakesbott’s appointment as 
investment director at the 
newly structured Stewart En- 
terprise Investment Com- r 
party, now called Value and 
Income Trust, wfl] be a test 
of his philosophy of buying 
secondary property for 
long term high returns. 

Mr Oakesbott, regarded 
in some property circles as a 
heretic, says: “We have as . 
unprecendented situation in 
.UK investment property 
where yields on certain types 
of property are higher than 
gifts, and it won'tlast.very 
long." 

His view is that an in- 
vestment trust, structured in 
foe way that VTT now is, is ■ 
a better product for investors 
than a unitized investment 
vehicle. Mr Oakesbott is bay- 
ing property, through a 
vTT subsidiary, Andax Prop- 
erties, at yields which are 
higher than foe fixed interest 
debenture money arranged 
by the trust. 

Unlike property suits or 
securities, VIT is buying 


wholesale and selling retail 
in unfashionable areas such 
as secondary retail and in- 
dustrial buddings.

STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Indicators edge higher as hopes 
grow for a technical rally soon 


Share, prices shrugged off 
renewed fears about Wall 
street yesterday and settled 
down to a steadier perfor- 
mance following Tuesday's 
surprise shake-out. y 
Dealers reported selective 

support for- leading shares 
after proclaiming that the 
mark-down had been over- 
done. Some are even look for a 
sustained technical rally over 
the next few days. 

The FT index of 30 shares 
recovered from a hesitant start 
ana became more adventur- 
ous m the afternoon as Wall 
Street opened firmer in early 
trading with the Dow Jones 
industrial average displaying a 
15-point rise. That offered 
further encouragment to Lon- 
don investors who have seen 
the Dow tumble by more than 
■50 points in the first two days 
of this week. 

The FT 30 Share closed 3.7 
points higher at 1306.3. The 
broader-based FT-SE 100 also 
reflected the firmer tone, end- 
ing 43 points up at 1,597.3. 

The renewed strength of 
sterling on the foreign ex- 
change market breathed fresh 
life into Government securi- 
ties. Gains at the longer end of 
the market stretched to £% at 
the close. But the Bank of 
England reported that applica- 
tions for the new tap stock.

Among the leaders, Hanson 
Trust was unchanged at i76p 
following the placing this week 
of the remainder of its shares 
accrued following the acquisi- 
tion of Imperial Group. The 
31 million shares were placed 
by Hoare Govett, the broker, 
at just over l?5p. 

Regalian Properties leapt 
35p to 620p as a line of over 1 
million shares went through 
the market at 550p. Mean- 
while, Equity & General, the 
leasing and garage group 


which used to trade under the 
name of Emray. spurted 5.5p 
to 29p on talks that a big stake 
had changed hands. Dealers 
claim that one buyer Hac 
picked up at least 25 per cent 
of the shares and plans a big 
asset injection. Marketmen 
are already talking the price up 
to 60p.

Market. M6 Cash & Carry 
received a lukewarm recep-

the shares the cold shoulder

glomerate, which owns a 29 
per cent stake in Bestobell, has 
thrown its weight behind 
Meggitt and says it will take a 
25 per cent bolding in the 
enlarged company if the bid is 
successful.

166p. both hardened lp 

Continuing talk of a bid for 
Stewart Wrightson, the insur- 
ance broker, was good for 
another I4p on the shares at 
4S9p — a rise of 34p in two 
days. Citibank, the US bank- 
ing and investment group, 
remains the market's 
favourite suitor. Dealers claim 
that Citibank is looking to 
extend its rang: of financial 
services in Europe and that 
Stewart Wrightson would 
make an idea] match. 

Some optimists were even 
suggesting a bid of 700p a 
share tomorrow, valuing the 
broker at £309.5 million. 
There were a few bright spots 
among the other insurance 
brokers, with Hogg Robinson 
advancing by 4p to 315p, still 
reflecting recently announced 
expansion plans, while CE 
Heath rose 3p to 532p and 
Sedgwick Group 2p to 348p. 

Steel BmriU Jones recov- 
ered from an early 5p fell to 
finish steady at 274p. But 
profit-taking reduced PWS 
International by 5p to 318p 
and Willis Faber by 8p to 
414p. 

The big insurance compos- 
ites enjoyed selective support, 
still hoping for a boost to 
profits from their US earnings 
following the recent weakness 
in the value of sterling. Guard- 
ian Royal Exchange was want- 
ed, with a 7p rise to 909p, as 
General Accident firmed 3p to 
852p, Royal Insurance 2p to 
849p and Commercial Union 
lpto3l3p. 

Standard Chartered contin- 
ued to rally, with a lOp rise to 
732p following weakness 
stemming from the jgroup's 
successful defence against the 
£1.3 billion bid from Lloyds 
Bank. The market is now 
looking for a change of strate- 
gy at Standard to appease its 
newest shareholders, includ- 
ing Sir Yue-Kong Pao with 
14.9 per cent. Tan Sri Khoo 
with 5 per cent and Mr Robert 
Holmes & Court’s Bell Corpo- 
ration with 7 per cent. 

Among the big four high 
street clearing banks. Lfeyife 
was unchanged at 424p, while 
Midland expanded 3p .to 
547p, Barclays 2p to 524p and 
National Westminster 3p to 
517p. 

Morgan Grenfell, the mer- 
chant bank, which made a 
disappointing debut last ac- 
count, again ran into early 
selling. The price dipped to a 
fresh low of 453p, before 
rallying to close lp up on the 
day at 456p. 


COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


White knights turn 
grey in dawn light 


Michael Newman has departed 
“amicably” from his post as chief 
executive of Britannia Arrow, as these 
financial settlements put it The deal 
was a necessary pan of yet another of 
the machinations of David Stevens, 
investment manager turned news- 
paper baron, and his chum, Robert 
MaxwelL 

Their partnership is a classic case of 
the lion hunting with the tiger. Poor 
Mr Newman was prey for both. 
Indeed, he welcomed them as holders 
of a combined stake of nearly 30 per 
cent of the fund management group, 
which is also the present owner of 
Singer & Friedlander, the merchant 
bank, since his main preoccupation at 
the time was to fend off the takeover 
bid from Guinness Peat. 

Once pan two of the strategy — to 
inject MIM, which was run by Mr 
Stevens but owned by Aetna Life — 
had been completed, Mr Newman's 
days were numbered. The process 
may be seen as altruism on Mr 
Newman's part, albeit compensated 
altruism, since Britannia Arrow's 
shares rose 3p to 143p yesterday 
compared with Guinness Peat’s cash 
alternative of 137p. 

It is, however, more likely to have 
been an example of an increasingly 
frequent phenomenon: white knights 
who turn out to be a good deal more 
lustful once they have saved the 
damsel from the distress of the 


unwanted attentions of another. 

When Guinness Peat’s bid was 
defeated in January, Mr Maxwell 
described the result as a vote of 
confidence in Britannia Arrow’s 
management — most of which has 
since departed. Mr Newman observed 
at the time: “Now we can look 
forward to the future with 
confidence", adding almost as an 
afterthought: “Obviously there will 
have to be further discussions with Mr 
Stevens and Mr Maxwell". 

The directors of Standard Char- 
tered apart perhaps from Stuart 
Tarrant, must now be wondering what 
sort of faie awaits them after their 
escape from Lloyds' clutches. Their 
encouragement to supportive cus- 
tomers and friends in the East to put 
their money where their good wishes 
were has unintentionally shifted effec- 
tive control of the bank and pointed 
its future in a completely different^ 
and unplanned, direction. 

The former management of Distill- 
ers, who fled into the arms of their 
white knight Guinness to save thent 
selves from James Gulliver, are 
suddenly aware that even white 
knights believe that all is fair in love 
and war, and may look grey in the cold 
light of dawn. 

Given such experiences, other hard- 
pressed boards might question more 
seriously whether their enemy’s en- 
emy is necessarily their friend.

Pretax profits of Victoria 
Carpet Holdings, which is 
based at Kidderminster. 
Worcestershire, climbed by 48 
per cent to a besi-ever £1.73 
million in the year to March 
30. The board explains that 
this record was thanks to. 
splendid results in Australia. 

Turnover rose from £25.41 
. million to £29.13 million and 
the dividend is being boosted 
by 25 per cent to 15p -also a 
record - with cover marginal- 
ly higher than last time. It will 
be paid on October 3. Earn- 
ings per share expanded from 
12.35p to I6.52p. 

The board reports that al- 
lhough borrowings are down 
to a relatively low level, 
continuing high interest rates 
in Australia make it necessary 
to retain profits there to meet 
capital expenditure. Despite 
the state of the economy, the 

Bras way. which is based at 
Wednesbory, West Midlands, is 
paying a total dividend of 2.25p 
for the S3 weeks to May 3, 1986, 
on capital increased by last 
year's one-for-three rights issue. 
A total of 2p was paid for 1984- 
85. On turnover np from £2231 
million to £2433 million, pretax 
profits climbed from £860.000 to 
£1.31 million. Earnings per 
share, on a weighted average, 
dipped from 9.21p to 9.16p. The 
board is proposing a one-for-one 
scrip issue. 

Australian company has made 
a satisfactory start, although at 
an inevitably lower level. 

In Britain, the first quarter 
has shown an improvement 
over the previous year, with a 
continuing effort to increase 
margins and productivity

Our distribution fleet runs efficiently 

on any kind of fuel. 


Den; kerosene, gas oil, coal, LPG: it makes 
no difference to Oceans fleet 

Because the fleet in question, which flies under 
the flag of Ocean, is one of the largest, most efficient 
and fastest-growing fuel distribution businesses in the 
UK today 

And at the same time, an excellent example of 
Oceans dynamic development as an industrial and dis- 
tribution services group. 

Cory Coal is one of Britain’s leading private 
coal trading companies, offering blending, supply and 
technical services to industrial and domestic clients. 

Cory f Oil, operating in East Anglia and die 
South East, is the largest Shell distributor in the UK. 

And our most recent development, Cory Gases, 
packs and distributes Shell LPG in South East and 
Central England 


Together with our operations in Northern 
Ireland and the Irish- Republic, these businesses make 
up a major strategic presence in a market which is both 
demanding and profitable. 

Profitable that is, for a company with the 
necessary distribution skills to meet the high standards 
(and even higher volumes) of a rigorous and exacting 
industry 

Profitable, in other words, for a company such 
as Ocean. Our core management skills, also applied in 
shipping, offshore oil support, warehousing and freight 
forwarding offer the right combination of expertise 
and of stamina. 

After all, it's 
not called the en-

Dixons should light up 



Dixons’ shares are stiH 
suffering from disappoint- 
ment after Ming to win 
Wool worth and from uncer- 
tainty over tbe future of- tbe 
52 per cent stake in its 
erstwhile bid target An early 
placing seems tbe most likely 

course. . 

The shares were 370p be- 
fore the bid, but closed 
yesterday at 326p, up 4p on 
the day. The announcement 
of pretax profits in 1985-86 of 
£78.1 million and extraordi- 
nary bid costs of £ 12.8 mil- 
lion merely confirmed what 
had already been said. What 
will happen this year is more 
interesting. L . . . 

Sales are well ahead with 
29 per cent growth in tbe first 
six weeks, the stores expan- 
sion programme is accelerat- 
ing and profits from financial 
services are set to rise. 

Dixons will spend £59 
million this year, compared 
with less than £40 million last 
year on 60 new Dixons stores 
(a 15 per cent increase in 
space), 30 new Currys (9 per 
cent more space) and at least 
JO new Power City stores (50 
per cent more space). 

Net debt to equity was. 
down to 15 per cent at the 
year-end from 91 per cent 
after the Currys acquisition. 
At tbe end of this year Dixons 
should be in a net cash 
position, despite the higher 
level of capital expenditure. 

It should also earn more 
money from its profit sharing 
arrangement in Club 24, the 
consumer credit operation 
owned by Next, and from its 
extended guarantee insurance 
business, which from this 
month will be reinsured with- 
in the group. 

Profits this year, according 
to Scrimgeour Vickers, 
should rise to £ 102 J million, 
giving a prospective p/e ratio 
of just over 17. The rating is 
in line with the prospeenve 
stores index, but does not 
reflect Dixons' outstanding 
success of the past few years. 

The shares should start to 
recover over the next few 
months and, according to 
Dixons fens in the City, 
should hit 400p before 
Christmas. 

Eurotherm Intnl 

Eurotherm International, 
which manufactures electron- 
ic controls, is not very popu- 
lar with the City's electronics 
analysts. Until recently the 
crystal-ball gazers were fore- 


seeing a small increase in 
interim profits, to be -fol- 
lowed by a rise of some 20 per 
cent for the whole year. 

Yesterday the analysis re- 
ceived something of -a shock 
from Eurothenn and proba- . 
Wy a- few sharp telephone 
calls from angry clients. In- 
stead of the small half-tune 
rise, pretax profits for the six 
months to April 30 were 
down four per cent at £3.35 
million. And in place of a 
buoyani foil year forecast, the 
company said profits -are 
likely to be similar u> the £y 
million recorded last year. 
Humble pie was the onto ; of. 
the day for Eurotherm, which 
a year ago was confi dent of 
maintaining a target growth 
rate of 20 per cenL 

The main culprit has been 
Infoscribe Inc.' an American 
printer manufacturer ac- 
’ quired in March . last year.. - 
Relocated from California to 
Virginia. Infoscribe -lost 
£400.000 because of the slow- . 
down in American economic 
growth and a clampdown on 
government spending after 
the Gramm-Rudman budget- 
slashing amendment was 
passed. Infoscribe's British . 
arm had to delay a product 
launch again and' lost a. 
similar amount 

Eurothenn said fuB-year 
losses at Infoscribe shoukLbe 
reduced significantly. The 
group's Eurotherm Corpora- 
tion. another American sutK 
si diary, also fell on : hard 
times, with profits down by 
£740,000. Again the sluggish 
American economy - was 
blamed. • : - 

Taken together, the various 
parts form a mixed bag which 
generates little excitement in 
the City The shares contin- 
ued their recent slide yester- 
day. losing 1 Sp to" 265p after

Magnet & 
Southerns 

Investors are being drawn by 
Magnet & Southerns, fn the 
past six months the shares 
have risen 50p to 184p, and 
yesterday’s figures suggest 
there could be further gains to 
come. 

Profits for the year to 
March 31 • fell from £28.2 
million to £26.1 million be- 
fore, tax but that reflected a 
poor first half. Second-half 


profits rose by 25 per cent fo ■

Steel ‘on way to 
£200m profits’ 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


Britain’s newly profitable 
state-owned steel industry 
should reach its target of a pre- 
tax profit of £ 200 m within the 
next three to five years, Mr 
Robert Scholey. the chairman, 
told MPs yesterday. 

Mr Scholey, appearing be- 
fore the Commons Select 
Committee on Trade and 
Industry, said that such a level 
of earnings, before financing 
chaiges, was essential if the 
British Steel Corporation was 
to be able to fond its capital 
investment programme. 

This year the corporation 
plans to spend £225 million 
and thereafter at the rate of 
about £200 million a year, 
mostly on modernization 
projects aimed at improving 
efficiency and supporting 
product development 

Mr Scholey emphasized 
that privatization of the BSC 
was not a priority. The central 
aim was to be free of state aid 
— which ended in the case of 
the BSC, but not of some of its 
European competitors at the 
end of last year - and to 
continue on a profitable route. 

He did, however, oppose 
piecemeal sale of the 
corporation’s businesses, par- 
ticularly if the steelmaking 
activity was deprived of its 
outlets. 

Mr Scholey was adamant 
that the BSC did not want any 
more Government financial 
aid. If the BSC was profitable 
and really free from state aid, 
then Britain's political posi- 
tion in Europe was strength- 
ened, he said. 

While the BSC has pledged 
to keep open its five integrated 
steelworks. including 
Ravenscraig in Lanarkshire, 
for another three years, Mr 
Scholey said the corporation 
would prefer to operate from 
fewer sites. Thyssen of West 


Germany, Europe's premier 
producer, now produced the 
same tonnage as the BSC but 
from one steel plant. 

Mr Scholey reminded MPs 
that the BSC faced the com- 
petitive pressures of an inter- 
national rather than national 
market, a sentiment echoed by 
a report from the Iron and 
Steel Economic Development 
Committee published today. 

This concludes that the 
British industry “pot only 
needs the operating freedom 
to adapt and develop its 
business to the changing mar- 
ket place but also to match the 
strategies of international 
competitors.” 

Again reflecting Mr 
Schoiey's remarks, the report 
says that severing ofBSC links 
to user markets through hiv- 
ing off of the joint ownership 
companies or complete di- 
vorce of the remaining BSC 
operations by region or prod- 
uct group could weaken the 
British steel industry's stance 
against principal overseas 
competitors who were 
strengthening (heir own links 
between steel production and 
the market.

.'given on December 1 1 . 1985: 

.The 198 1 Regulations pro- 
X™? by regulation Cl A: “(I) 
This regulation applies to a

applicants to withdraw their 
labour but advised them to do 
so for one day on June 23. 1 982. 
The appliams accepted that 
advice and were each absent 
from duly for that day. 

The point of the case arose 
under the 1981 Regulations. 
The applicants claimed to ex- 
ercise the right given by the 
regulations to retain the day lost 
as reckonable service for the 
purposes of pension rights by 
(he payment of an additional 
sum of money over the normal 
rate of contribution. 

The minister was minded to 
determine the question by 
deciding that the applicants 
were not persons to which 
regulation ClA applied and 
tbaL therefore, they could not 
retain the day lost on payment 
of the sum due. 

At the request of the ap- 
plicants the minister decided to 
aate a special case Tor

Court. The case posed the 


question whether on the facts 
found by him the secretary of

LORD JUSTICE RALPH 
GIBSON said that the ap- 
plicants were social workers and 
members of the National and 
Local Government Officers' 
Association (Nalgo). In June 
1 982 a trade dispute occurred at 
the hospital at which they were 
employed by Dudley Metropoli- 
tan Borough Council. 

Hie applicants were not 
themselves involved in the 
trade dispute but the Trades 
Union Congress asked Nalgo to 
show their support for the strike 


imported no element of dis- , 
cretiou in the application of the 
regulation to a person to whom i 
it applied. His Lordship found 
the case difficult. 

The applicants and the union 
wished to obtain a ruling dial 
the views as to the proper 
construction of the regulation as 
indicated in the formulation of 
the case were wrong; in particu- 
lar. the proposition that because 
absence from duty was vol- 


untary it was incapable of being 
in consequence of a trade dis-

pute.

-'the board's election to pay

“ • Mr Anthony Purnell, QC and

titling them lb award interest; 
but that where, under their 
terms of reference, they were to 
conduct the arbitration in ac- 
cordance with foe law of En- 
gland, they were empowered to 
apply so much of that law as was 
to be found in section 3(1) of the 
Law Reform (M i scellaneous 
Provisions) Act 1934: see 
Chandris v Jsbra ndlsen-M oiler 
Co Inc ([1951 J I KB 240. 

Where arbitrators were ap- 
pointed under a statute, their 
mandate was to be determined 
by reference to the statute 
concerned: see Monmouthshire 
County Council v Newport BC 
([1947J l All ER 916). 

Parliament thus appeared to 
have provided three possible 
settlers of disputes under the 
1957 Act, two of which, the 
county court and a consensual 
arbitrator, undoubtedly had the 
power to award interest. It was 
inconceivable that the third, foe 
Lands Tribunal, had not been 
intended to have a similar 
power, if and so far as proceed- 
ings before it were for the 
recovery of a debt or damages. 

By section 1 3(3) of the Act foe 
tribunal was empowered, inter 
aJia, (a) to require foe board to 
carry out its obligations under 
the Act, or (b) to award da m ages 
for foe board’s failure to carry 
out those obligations within a 
reasonable time. 

The claimants’ cause of action 
in damages was complete if 
subsidence damage occurred 
and the board failed to execute 
remedial works or to pay 
compensation fas soon as 
reasonably practicable". 

If in principle interest could 
be awaraed on such a claim, 
then it should run from foe date 
when that cause of action first 
arose, and not foejater date 
when foe board gavelioiice that 
they did not propose to carry out 
remedial works and were there- 
fore prepared pay compensa- 
tion. 

LORD JUSTICE NOURSE 
dissenting, said that it .was not 
possible to distinguish^ the 
present case from Swift v Board

Monmouthshire County Council 
r Newport BC. 

However desirable foe im- 
plication that in. dealing w*fo 
laree claims foe tnbunal had foe 
same power to award interest as 
foe county court had on smaller 
claims, it was not one which the 
accepted principles of statutory 
construction allowed the court 
to make.

that proposed determination 
was itself a decision oflaw and, 
if it was. whether it was right in 
(aw. 

His Lordship was driven to 
the conclusion that the pro- 
posed determination by the 
minister was wrong in law. The 
appeal should be allowed and 
the court should answer the 
question in the case by saying 
that on the facts found by him 
lhe minister was not entitled to 
decide that the applicants' ab- 
sence from duty was not in 
consequence of a trade dispute. 

His Lordship's reasons for 
reaching that conclusion were 

thus; 

His Lordship would start with 
the absence from duty and ask 
what were the causes of it? One 
cause was foe existence of the 
trade dispute. 

It led theTUC to ask Nalgo to 
show support by means of a 
token withdrawal of labour. The 
union advised but did not 
instruct the applicants to with- 
draw labour on June 23. 1982 in 
order to show that support. The 
applicants were absent on that 
day because they each chose to 
follow that advice. 


maiefjaJ whether or not the 
applicant was directly interested 
in the trade dispute or the 
employing authority a party to 
the dispute. 


It was dear beyond argument 
that the combination of causes, 
leading to the absence from 
duty, which was present in the 
instant case must have been 
within foe contemplation of 
Parliament as an ordinary and 
typical state of affairs in which 
absence from work would be a 
consequence of a trade dispute 
within the regulations. 

Could any of the concurrent 
causes, reasonably be regarded as 
an intervening or extraneous 
event so powerful that the trade 
dispute ceased to be a cause at 
all but was merely part of foe 
circumstances in or on which 
any or ail of those concurrent 
causes operated? 

No one of those other causes, 
nor all of them together, could 
be reasonably so regarded hav- 
ing regard to foe terms of foe 
regulation. If Parliament had 
intended that such a sequence of 
events, in no sense extraor- 
dinary or untypical, should 
result in the precipitating cause 


There were other causes of lhe of the whole sequence, foal is. 
absence from duty as appeared fo e trade dispute, being no

from the findings of fact. One 
was the request by the TUC to 
Nalgo for a show of support. 
Another was the acceptance of 
that request by Nalgo and the 
giving of advice by Nalgo to 
their members. Yet another 
cause was foe the sc para le 
decision made by each applicant 
to act on that advice and stay 
away from work. 

Parliament had approved 
regulation CIA. which afforded 
the right to retain as reckonable 
days lost by absence "in con- 
sequence or a trade dispute. 


longer regarded as a cause of foe 
absence from work, different 
language would have appeared 
in the regulation. 

His Lordship concluded that 
on the facts found by foe 
minfaier the trade dispute was in 
law a cause of the absence from 
duty and would hold that foe 
minister was not entitled to 
decide that the absence was not 
in consequence of that trade 
dispute.

(Judgment given July 16] 

Where a resolution for the

contained a latent error of an 
insignificant character so that 
no one could be prejudiced by 
its correction, foe court had 
either a statutory power under 
section 13? of foe Companies

For the purpose of im-

meeting was convened for that 
purpose on February 3, 1986. 

At that meeting Special resolu- 
tions were passed to precisely 
the same effect as before save 
that the previous errors were 
corrected. 

Those new resolutions were

and that so construed the resolu- 
tion was of full force and effect. 

Section 137 of the Companies 
An 1985 provided that the court 
might make an order confirming 
a reduction of capital "on such 
terms and conditions as it thinks 
fit". 


and provided ihat it was im- Treasury Solicitor. 


SIR DENYS BUCKLEY said 
that foe company, which dealt 
in air- conditioning and allied 
equipment experienced finan- 
cial difficulties and foe ap- 
plicant became anxious to 
arrange a reorganization of irs 
capital and foe injection of some 
new money. 

He had discussions with a 
business associate and those 
resulted in the issue in May 
1985 to shareholders of a cir- 
cular containing proposals for a 
rights issue of new ordinaiy 
snares of the company and a 


of existing unissued ordinary 
shares as 2.073.420 instead of 
foe correct figure of 2.073,417, 
and misstated foe number of 
issued ordinary shares as 
14.926,580 instead of the correct 
figure of 14.926*5 S3. The trou- 
ble arose from that minute 
error; 

The special resolution which 
was set out in foe notice- 
contained paragraphs (A) to (G) 
and foe error was contained in 
paragraph (E). 

The extraordinary general 
meeting took place on May 29, 
1985 when the special resolution 
was passed in the terms of the 
notice and foe applicant voted 
in favour of it. life rights issue 
was implemented in due course. 

Further to negotiations which 
had taken place with the busi- 
ness associate; the applicant 
renounced 3.600,000 of the 
rights issue shares in favour of 
Solidfact, who was in due course 
registered as the owner of foe 
shares and had paid for them. 

It was those shares in respect 
of which the applicant by 
originating morion sought 
rectification of foe company's 


then stood, namely, including 
the rights issue shares. 


If upon investigation it be- 
came apparent to the court that

as if no rights issue had yet been 
made, he would have been in a 
position to block foe special 
resolution as he would have had 
more than 25 per cent of the 


votes cast at foe meeting. 
The only question before 


was no doubt that foe court bad 
either the statutory power or an 
inherent power to confirm the 
reduction of capital in a form or 
upon terms which would corrct 
foe error. 


judge was whether foe applicant 
was bound to fail on his claim to 
rectification, based as it was on 
an assertion that the special 
resolution of May 1985 was 
without effect. 


The essential feature of foe 
applicant's case was that para- 
graphs (A) to (G) of foe special 
resolution constituted one in- 
divisible composite resolution 
which was ineffective in its 
entirety by reason of foe fan 
that paragraph (E) was ineffec- 
tive.

served out of time in the Court 
of Appeal, foe company con-

It was unnecessary and un- 
reasonable to require foe com- 
pany in the present case to incur 
the considerable expense of 
obtaining a corrective special 
resolution as in fact it did in 
February 1986. 

Therefore paragraph (E) of foe 
special resolution of May 1985 
was not ineffective and the 
resolution was not incapable of 
confirmation. Reading the cir- 
cular as a whole, it was 
manifestly ridiculous to sup- 
pose that it could have ben 
intended to leave three issued 
shares unaffected. 

The applicant was bound to 
fail upon foe originating mo- 
tion.

THE 



TIMES 


GENERAL ATTOINIMENTS 


July 17, 1986 


A sk any manager who 
has been at work for 1 5 
io 20 years what major 
differences he or she 
feces today compared 
with those of, say, 15 years ago, 
and the word “change" will proba- 
bly find its way into the answer. 
Thai is not of course, to imply 
that change is something new; but 
it is undeniable that the speed and 
size of change now confronting 
managers in most commercial 
organizations is a world away 
from the gentle evolutionary de- 
velopment which, with the benefit 
of hindsight, was the norm 10 
years ago. 

Before the economic recession 
of the late 1970s. industry includ- 
ed in its ranks a far larger number 
of companies than’ it does now. 
The fact that so many of them 
ceased trading or went bankrupt is 
in part due to economic 
circumstance. 


had not understood or perceived 
the need for entrepreneurial or 
innovative leaders, and by the 
time they realized what was 
happening it was too late. 


However, a common problem 
experienced by many was that 
they lacked the sort of manage- 
ment which might have given 
them the chance of survival. They 


In the retail sector, the pace of 
change during the past few years 
has bran greater than at any time 
before. v 

Shopping is no longer an activi- 
ty carried on out of pure, necessity. 
It is a social activity which 
requires modem retailers to at- 
tend to customer needs in terms of 
merchandise (which was done 
anyway) and more importantly, to 
the problem of creating the sort of 
ambience and environment in 
which their customers will feel 
comfortable, and hence be more 
likely to spend. 

A walk around any modern 
chain or department store will 
reveal the many changes made in 
the past few years — walkways 
which enable you to see what is on 
offer without having to fight your 
way through serried ranks of racks 
and counters; new methods of 
display which show goods off to 
their best advantage; computer- 


Retail managers 
need a flair for 
making shopping 
a pleasing social 
activity today, 
says Paul Smith 



ized tills and stock control sys- 
tems; a multiplicity of payment 
methods, including in-house cred- 
it cards; carpeted floors, subdued 
fighting, carry-to-car services and 
soon. 


Of course, all this could not 
have been achieved unless some- 
body had decided how, when and 
where to do it. As management in 
retailing is ideally unobtrusive, 
customers are not normally aware 
of the flair and decision-making 
ability required of retail managers. 


nor of the professional techniques 
used by them. 

This gives us our biggest recruit- 
ment problem, as the manage- 
ment staff on view in most stores 
rarely seem to be doing anything. 
The assumption is therefore made 
that the major qualities required 
do not include intelligence, busi- 
ness acumen, a large degree of self- 
motivation and high skill in 
leading and motivating others. 

As Marks & Spencer currently 
pays its top store managers a 


package worth more than £50,000 
a year, it would be difficult to 
explain why we should reward 
mediocrity so generously unless 
uninformed perceptions were to- 
tally wrong. 

Finding managers who can cope 
with the challenges retailing pro- 
vides is not easy. Most companies 
have some immutable guidelines 
about their operation: Marks & 
Spencer has such principles, main- 
ly to do with our stance on the 
quality and value of what we sell 
and with the relationship we wish 
to have with our staff manufac- 
turers and customers. These philo- 
sophical ideals never change, but 
the policy for achieving them 
constantly changes. This gives 
managers a variety of problems 
requiring considerable ingenuity 
to solve. 

However, successful manage- 
ment must be pn>active.That is, it 
must set itself objectives rather 
than just react to those set for it. 
For this reason, our managers are 
asked to identify personal and 
group objectives, which they be- 
come responsible for achieving. 

This requires them to evaluate 


past performance, analyse future 
opportunities, and to devise busi- 
ness strategies for whatever area 
they are working in. If any further 
evidence is needed to substantiate 
the challenge of retail manage- 
ment, then this is it 
Retailing is one of the largest 
employers of people in the UK. 
This is perhaps surprising in view 
of the image problems the indus- 
try has, and our biggest problem is 
to deride how and when to sell 
ourselves to those who sooner or 
later will come on to the job 
market. 


M uch has recently 
been written about 
government initia- 
tives concerning in- 
dustry finks with 
education. Our own experience 
would support the view that 
education currently provides 
training in academia, -but does 
rather less to prepare students for 
work or choosing suitable careers. 

As many of our retailing col- 
leagues do, we have an extensive 
schools and university liaison 
system, and a heavy commitment 


to work experience training. Nev^ 
ertheless, this only scratches the 
surface of the problem of how to 
reach the brightest minds tad’, 
convince them -that retailing can: 
offer the kind of stimulation and; 
challenge they seek. 

If the Government' proposes;, 
new syllabuses in schools (ar otheiC 
schemes), ihen it is -certain -that* , 
industry would be only too nappy;- 
to respond positively, particularly* •. 
retail companies whose attraction 
problems are so acute: 1 ' ; 

Hurty-five years ago. President: 
Kennedy said; “Change is the law; 
of life And those who only look to 
the past or the present are certanr 
to miss the future." - 



As business becomes even more - 
international, British industry.; 
and retailing in particular needs; 
to take a good look at its own: 
future to ensure that it convinces; 
our finest minds that it has .the 
resources to. provide them with- 
interesting, exciting and rewarding ‘ 
careers. '

Wore accepting packages of this kind. 
>.Tnere_ are further dangers when a 
Substantial part of remuneration is based 
on corporate profits, over which employ- 
ees below top levels will have very little 
control. Even when reward is based on 
individual performance the issue may 
not be entirely clear-cut. 

Peter Gardiner-Hill. of the career 
consultancy GHN, says: "ifs easy 
enough to set targets in sales or 
production, but how do you quantify 
performance in a purely adm/mszative 
5^ job- In his view employers need to 
master a whole range of new job- 
evaluation skills if they are to deal with 
these trends in remuneration. But he also 
thinks that they call for realistic seJf- 
appraisal by job applicants, or indeed 
incumbents, when they negotiate with an 
employer over money and benefits 

Beware of remuneration 
based on corporate profits 

, "You need a thorough understanding 
of the job, how performance in it can be 
measured and what quantifiable contri- 
bution you can make," he says. "Self- 
knowledge. both in the functional and 
the psychological sense — what you know 
you are capable of delivering — is the 
start of the negotiating process." 

, But how much scope is there for 
Ltegolialing one's remuneration, espe- 
cially when a salary is indicated in an 
advertisement? According to Nick 
Boulter, manager of Hay-MSL’s Reward 
Information Centre, the least leeway is in 
first jobs for graduates. Starting salaries 
at this level tend to be fixed, irrespective 
of the class of degree which was 
obtained. The variations which do occur 
are between industries and occupations. 
Accountancy is where the best money is 
for the newly qualified. 

-...Further up the career ladder, large 
organizations, while seeming at first 
sight to be fairly inflexible about reward 
structures, are often not as monolithic as 
one might think.' He says "Remunera- 
tion in big companies, and even in the 
voblic sector, is fixed in bands which 
Give to encompass a lot of very different 
jftbsand functions. Within one band 
ljiere . may have 1 to be quite wide 
variations in salary and benefits to 


the dangers and pitfalls 
to watch out for 
when negotiating your 
new salary requirement 

attract and hold the best candidates." 

It is this which, in the opinion of career 
consultants, creates opportunities for 
bargaining. They recommend that when 
a salary range is stated, it is generally 
worth aiming for the top figure because 
the employer or his intermediary will be 
empowered to pay up to that amount. 

Mr Gardiner-Hill points out “H puis 
you in line for promotion to the next 
level when your progress next comes up 
for review. And that can be a bigger jump 
in terms of salary and benefits than a 
move within your existing band.” 

It is also worth bearing in mind that if 
you find when you are installed that the 
demands of the job have been under- 
siimaied. it is then extremely difficult to 
renegotiate the salary, at least within the 
next 12 months. 

A further possible area in which to 
look for flexibility is in fringe benefits. 
Though they can account for as much as 
40 per cent of the value of a remunera- 
tion package, they are often left surpris- 
ingly vague in job advertisements. 

There is, for instance, room for 
manoeuvre within salary bands about 
the kind of car that goes with the job, but 
even if the niceties of the distinction 
between 1.6 and 1.8 litres leave you cold, 
there are usually other issues that ought 
to be discussed. 

An example is relocation cost because 
apart from the actual upheaval itself, a 
move from the North of England to the 
South-East will involve a big increase in 
mortgagHnierest payments. Some em- 
ployers either offer low-interest loans or 
subsidize the difference at least for a 
period of time, usually on an amount 
which is related to salary. Other items 
you may be able to bargain with are top- 
up arrangements on company pension 
and private medical schemes, club 
membership in jobs which involve a lot 
of entertaining and the increasingly 
fashionable share-option arrangements. 
These used to be reserved for senior 
executives, but' there is a strong trend to 
make them more widely available. 

The greatest scope for negotiation is 
found in small companies and in new 


appointments where there are no odious 
eomparisions or precedents. But even in 
big firms there can be room for 
discussion. Mr Boulter says: ‘it's diffi- 
cult to make special deals fbr individuals 
because of the issue of comparability, but 
if your skills really are scarce, an 
employer might stretch a point or two to 
gel you.” 

At the very top. however, the con- 
straints arc much fewer. Indeed he 
advises that those being lured from a 
senior job into a situation where they 
have to turn round a company or a 
division in trouble should take the risk 
factor into account. Certainly there 
should be a tangible recognition of 
performance in the shape of appropriate 
share options and performance-related 
bonuses. 

But what about “telephone number" 
payments that are currently being offered 
in the City and in financially fashionable 
areas like PR. advertising and design? 
Boulter warns against drawing too many 
conclusions from these. In his opinion 
they are one-off inducements, often to 
get the right team in place for the coming 
of Big Bang. Once the dust settles, he 
believes that many of these packages will 
be rc-adjusted. In any case, he points out, 
they are only going to a minority of 
individuals in key jobs. "Most of the 
people in these firms arc on relatively 
ordinary salaries." 

On the other hand, they have had the 

Look for flexibility in 
company fringe benefits 

effect of loosening the concept of “going 
rales" related to specific grades or length 
of service. Indeed there is evidence of a 
trend towards salaries not to be stated in 
advertisements or for negotiation to be 
left to headhunters in charge with putting 
together wheatever package it takes, 
within reason, to attract the right 
candidate. This puts an extra burden on 
job-seekers to be skilled negotiators. The 
best course, in that case, is to study the 
appointments pages for the extensive 
guidance many advertisements give on 
what employers are prepared to pay for 
specific jobs. 

At what point, though, should the 
negotiating process begin? Most experts 
advise that candidates should leave it as 
late in the interviewing process as 
possible and to sidestep it if interviewers 
try to introduce it prematurely. The 
reason fbr that is that you are in a much 
stronger position if you have established 
yourself as the indispensable person for 
the job before negotiating the terms. 
Above all, you should avoid detailed 
discussions with intermediaries because 
they may well have been given con- 
straints which the employer himself is 
prepared to stretch - but which could 
rule you out if you make your move 
before you see the whites of bis eyes.

Mitchell Platts on the 10 leading contenders at Tumberry 

Lyle can build on recent success 



-viS. 







Sandy Lyle 

Age: 28. Bone Shrew 
Turned profe s sio na l: 
victories: One. 


Shrewsbury, Shropshire. Height 6ft lin. Weight 13st 5b. 
lionafc 1977. Career wins: 19. ChsnpronsMps: One. 1888 


Confirmed rich abffity by winning 12 months ago. Assisted by 
unflappable nature as mirrored by his sofid two-putt after the 18th green 
drama of a weak chip. A worthy Open champion who has 
remained level-beaded throughout hfs reign. Victory at Floyai St George's 
increased his faith in his own game. Gained an important breakthrough 
in March when he won the Greater Greensboro Open on the US circuit

Boyd-Moss and Cook 
rewrite record books 

By Peter Marson 


By the time Northamp- 
tonshire's batting had finished 
with Lancashire's bowling at 
Northampton, yesterday, and in 
truth, this was a rather one sided 
contest. Northamptonshire had 
amassed a huge pile of 400 runs 
before declaring, and Geoff 
Cook and Robm Boyd-Moss 
had established a new record 
partnership for the second 
wicket. 

Cook's 183 was his best 
performance, and that was true 
also of 155 by Boyd-Moss, and 
in their partnership together 
along the course or 90 overs 
these two eased past the pre- 
vious record, established in 
1983 by Larkins and Willey, and 
this too had been here against 
Lancashire at Northampton, to 
344. 


Having won the toss and 
chosen to bat, Northamp- 
tonshire's innings had been 
given a brisk start, in which 
Larkins and Cook had helped 
themselves to 30 runs off four 
overs. 

At Edgbaston. Derbyshire's 
gamble of selecting Maher, their 
reserve wicket-keeper, as an 
opening batsman paid a useful 
dividend as he ana Barnett put 
on 99 for the first wicket against 
Warwickshire. Maher made his 
exit here, leg before to Small, but 
Bameu went on to make 77. 

Glamorgan decided to bat at 
Neath, but they were soon to 
lose Morris, their leading run 
maker this season, and Pauline, 
too, as Pridgeon and Radford 
won the first round for 
Worcestershire. 


ond ball into the football stand 
for six, then survived a return 
chance to Gray. It made no 
difference. Still looking for the 
initiative, he was soon 
stumped, the ball turning 
enough for New Zealand to 
have had no regrets now that 
they batted firsL 

Another lamentable lack of 
communication led to Rich- 
ards being run-out next: he 
had completed more than half 
a run from a shot to short fine- 
leg before Pringle, the striker, 
had the slightest idea of iL 
Richards never looked like 
gening back. Emburey offered 
nothing and Ellison, the last 
Englishman with any realistic 
chance of saving the day, went 
in another elementary 
misunderstanding. 

This time Foster was not 
alert to the possibility of a 
second ran after the tell had 
been played to long-off. Before 
departing. Ellison looked to 
shake a fist at his partner. 
Both being in helmets such a 
gesture needed to be visual. 
Like Ellison's call the spoken 
word might well have gone 
unheard. There were still 6.4 
overs left when Foster was last 
out Jeff Crowe was a worthy 
man of the match. 


SOUTHEND: Leicestershire, 
with four first innings wickets in 
hand lead Essex by one run. 

Essex, who are second in the 
table, eight points behind 
Gloucestershire, with two 
matches in hand, are sharing a 
gritty, low-scoring match with 
Leicestershire, who stand 
fourth: Essex by mid-afternoon 
were dismissed for 1 S3 and their 
opponents in turn struggled later 
to give the Southend Week an 
eventful start. 

The Southchurch Park pitch 
yielded little pace but on a hot. 


By Richard Streeton 

With Gooch. Pringle and 
Foster absent with England, and 
Fletcher still iqjured. Essex are 
uncomfortably weakened for 
this match. Pnchard declined to 
be inhibited and made numer- 
ous attractive, confident 
strokes, before he fell to Benja- 
min. trying to glance, just before 
lunch. 

Bonder was seventh out when 
'he attempted to drive De Freitas 
and edged the ball into his 
stumps. Bonier until then had 
looked impregnable. He will be 
badly missed if Essex are still in 


second slip and the bowlers 
remained in control.

BRISTOL: Gloucestershire have 
scored 323 for six against 
Sussex. 

Sussex won the- toss and put 
Gloucestershire in. There was 
no obvious reason 1 for this. The 
pitch and the weather were dry, 
though there was some heavi- 
ness in the atmosphere. 

. Stovold was an early depar- 
ture, through injury, a knock on 
the fingers, but Wright and 
Tomlins batted equably and 
even .at times briskly ' through 
% the rest of the momma and at 
% lunch: after 45 overs, the score 
was 100. 

Some overs later the innings 
began to waiver, chiefly as a 
result of a testing spell from 
Imran, who bowled Wright and 
Bain bridge: He was well sup- 
ported by. Mays, . who bad 
Tomlins caught at short leg, and 
bowled Curran. 

Gloucestershire's fifth-wicket 
partnership, taking over 
bravely, put . on 40 rather 
scratchy runs and, when Lloyd 
was caught at mid-wicket at 1 50. 
Sussex could not have felt too 
dismal about their investment. 
But Siovold’5 calming return 
and a vigorous innings by 
Alleyne pulled the innings to- 
gether again and at tea the score 
was to put them in thought of a 
declaration. 

But Stovold, though be must 
have been' in pahr-from his 
hand, and Alleyne, who is a 
Londoner, seemed to enjoy 
batting on in the sunshine. The 
Sussex outcricket became, not 
. bad. but a little fretted. . . 

The Bristol ground looked 
a nice and tidy and happy, except 
for Stovold when he was out 
near the end. For once, Bristol

Fears expressed by some 
members of the Irish Football 
Association international 
committee that Billy Bingham, 
the Northern Irdandleam man- 
ager, would be unable effectively 
to pursue his international du- 
ties in the light of bis contract 
with al-Nasser, the Saudi Ara- 
bian dub, were dispelled, at 
least temporarily, by Harry 
Cavan, IFA president, on Tues- 
day night. .y 

The committee agreed by a 
unanimous vote’ that Bingham 
should cany on as. Northern 
Ireland team manager - even 
though he will be <tomirikti in 
Saudi Arabia for the next 12 
months. - * 

“He has assured us that he has 
the necessary, contacts in the 
United Kingdom id enable him 
to -keep abreast of aD matters 
relevant io the Northern Ireland 
team,* Mr Cavan said. . 

“There is a release danse in 
his contract regarding Northern 
Ireland games and we are con- 
fident that he wfll be able to 
fulfil his duties as confidently 
and as successfully in the future 
as be has done in the past. The 
situation wfil be reviewed in 12 
months."- - ' - 

Bingham took over as man- i/v 
ager to the. Northern ■ Ireland 
team in 1980 and has enjoyed 
phenomenal success, reaching 
the final stages of two World 
Cup competitions, winning the 
nowdefonct home international 
championship twice and only 
foiling on goal average fo qualify 
for the final stages of the last 
European championship. 

Bingham’s contract with al- 
Nasser is reported to be worth 
around £80,000 and he is ex- 
pected to leave for Saudi Arabia 
at the end of this month.

-39 By George Chesterton 

— 1 Cheltenham lost wickets too 
izi regularly to get on terms with 
«*• the 244 set them by Sherborne 
and were grateful to settle for a ; 
draw on 129 for eight yesterday. 
Sherborne, with their record of 
five wins against schools, are a 
formidable and well balanced 
side but Cheltenham’s eight- 
wicket win over Hailey bury on 
Tuesday must have given them 
confidence. 

“,3 Kardooni won the toss for 
" 85 Sherborne and elected to bat on 
A . a wicket full of runs. It was 
. Kardooni himself who was first 
“38 out with the score on 50. With 
— 6 Ashworth timing the ball well, 

■ 1 § especially when over-pitched, 
the scoring rale was high, and 
lunch was taken at 137 for two.

High hopes as Lyle 
walks to gallows 




By Mitcbell Platts 


Sandy Lyle will step on to 
the first tee at T umberry today 
with the eagerness of a man 
going to the gaJJows.The fear 
arises not so much from the 
knowledge that his reign as 
Open champion could last 
only a further four days, but 
from his concern to provide 
the patriotic crowd with the 
thought that the best is yet to 
come. 

LyJe is a proud man and he 
would be thoroughly disgusted 
with himself if he became a 
victim of the halfway guillo- 
tine. “I want to play well, I 
want to be in contention and 
I'm determined to be right 
there until the bitter end even 
if I don't win.” he said. 

Tony Jacklin. the last Brit- 
ish player to win the Open 
before Lyle's success at Royal 
St George's a year ago. thrilled 
his supporters at St Andrews 
in 1970 when he went to the 
turn in 29. His rhythm, how- 
ever, was interrupted by a 
storm. He was forced to leave 
the course at the 14th and 
return the following day. The 
momentum bad disappeared. 

Jacklin's defence that year 
continued an era when he 
dominated the Open Champi- 
onship. He might have won 
the coveted prize on three 
occasions but he has settled 
into retirement with the one 
winning memory. 

Lyle wants more than that 
He fits the requirements of a 
multi-winner because he is 
mentally as well as physically 
strong. His game is never 


straight-jacketed by pressure. 
He possesses the heart of a 
lion and the willingness of a 
shire horse. 

The problem is that the 
Open remains an elusive 
prize. Jack Nicklaus is the 
greatest golfer in the world but 
he has returned home on only 
three occasions as the champi- 
on. It is a tribute to his 
outstanding ability that he has 
so consistently emerged as a 
contender but undeniable evi- 
dence that no one player can 
any longer dominate the 
Open. 

Tom Watson bas come 
nearest to that in recent times. 
He has five victories to his 


multiplies with each passing 
year without another victory. 
There is no doubt that the 
talent remains, especially with 
such artists as Watson, but the 
mind agonizes as the self- 
doubt erodes the confidence. 

It is often only when the 
pleasure of victory becomes a 
distant memory that some 
golfers can recapture the 
knack of winning, which is the 
case this year with Nicklaus 
and Raymond Floyd. Both 
have turned the clock back by 
winning the United States 
Masters and the US Open 
respectively. 

In so doing they have 
momentarily silenced the 


Profiles of the favourites, page 36 


credit — the first was at 
Carnoustie in 1975 — and 
another this week will enable 
him to equal the record of six 
held by Harry Vardon. 

Whether Watson has es- 
caped from the torment of 
losing such a chance at St 
Andrews two years ago, when 
he was palpably destroyed by 
Severiano Ballesteros, will 
again be examined. 

The problem is that the 
cycle of a champion can be as 
brief as it is brilliant. Arnold 
Palmer, sadly missing this 
year, won his seven champi- 
onships in a six-year span. 
Watson won his eight between 
1975 and 1983. 

When a golfer has elevated 
himself to the position of 
proven champion the pressure 


American critics who were 
becoming increasingly agitat- 
ed by the lack of success of 
their* countrymen while the 
power of European golf gath- 
ered strength with the exploits 
of Bernhard Laiiger, 
Ballesteros and Lyie. More- 
over. 12 weary players re- 
turned to the United States 
last September without the 
Ryder Cup for the first time 
since 1957. 

Langer, of course, followed 
in the footsteps of Ballesteros 
by winning the US Masters. 
The West German is one of 
the most resilient players in 
the game and be possesses the 
power and precision to win on 
Turn berry's Ailsa course. 

Greg Norman, of Australia, 
is possibly the finest player in 


the arena not to have won a 
big championship. Yet he is 
leading the money list in the 
US this season, which is no 
mean feat considering that 
Bob Tway. of the US, is 
enjoying a marvellous season 
with three victories. 

Yet in spite of the claims of 
such worthy contestants as 
Andy Bean and Fuzzy Zoeller. 
and of the Britons, Howard 
Clark and Sam Torrance, 
there can be little doubt that 
Ballesteros will be the man to 
beat when the 115th champi- 
onship begins. 

Ballesteros bas not won a 
big championship since he 
collected the Open for a 
second time with his success 
at St Andrews in 1984. Even 
so. he comes into this tourna- 
ment as the winner of his last 
four and with his confidence 
as high as it has ever been. 

"Confidence alone does not 
win championships," 
Ballesteros said. "But I have 
to believe that my form at the 
moment is so good that I must 
have an excellent chance of 
winning. For me the biggest 
opponent will be the golf 
course itself.” 

If the wind howls, as it did 
yesterday, there will be no 
shortage of casualties. Lyle, 
however, is determined that 
he will not be one of them and 
that by Sunday evening, if be 
is not the champion again, be 
will have at least acquitted 
himself to the best of his 
ability. Nobody can ask for 
more. 



Great minds thinking alike: Trevino, Watson and Nkklans trying to nnraveTtfce secrets of 
the bole nicknamed Fin’ Me Oot at Turnberry 


Great test for a modern knight of Ailsa 


By Mitchell Platts 
Sandy Lyle was an amateur requisitioned 
on the only previous occasion 


that Turn berry was employed 
as an Open championship 
venue, in 1977. He turned 
professional later that year, 
then, two years later, empha- 
sized his ability to graduate to 
the highest level in the game 
when he won the European 
Open on the Ailsa course. 

Today, Lyle is the Open 
champion. To assist his de- 
fence of the title he has the 
benefit of knowing that he has 
won on the course. “As a past 
winner at Turn berry I am 
bound to say that I like the 
Ailsa course,” said Lyle. "But 
it is a fact that I regard it as 
one of the best courses in the 
country. The strength of the 
wind, of course, will deter- 
mine how difficult it plays this 
week. But there is a mass of 
undergrowth and the inevita- 
ble gorse bushes to help 
protect the course. There are a 
number of very fine holes, 
many of which are potential 
card-wrecking ones. It pro- 
vides a thorough 
examination.” 

Turn berry is the latest ven- 
ue to be added to the roster of 
Open championship courses, 
a promotion that would have 
seemed unlikely when it was 


for a second 
time — it had been a training 
station for pilots from 1914 to 
1919 — at the start of the 
Second World War by the Air 
Ministry. 

The countryside had been 
scarred by battle long before 
the evolution of golf, as Rob- 
ert the Bruce landed on this 
crajgy stretch of coastline on 
the Firth of Clyde to begin his 
conquest 

T umberry was founded as a 
golf venue in 1903, and by 
1909 there were two 13-hole 
courses. The changing limes 
are reflected by an extract 
from a booklet, entitled Tales 
of Tradition from Turnberry, 
that was produced in the early 
part of the century: "At 
Turn berry, below the broken 
walls of what was once an 
impregnable castle and where 
now the lighthouse flashes 
forth its warning, instead of 
the beacon flare that told of 
raiders off the coast, the golf 
greens stretch — o'er what was 
once the castle chase. Here, 
plus fours are seen instead of 
glittering armour in tourney or 
in foray, and golf balls fly 
across the ground where 
hawking parties merrily rode 
out.”

THE SCHOOL FEE AND INVESTMENT SPECIALISTS 


Hole 1 Ailsa Craig: Not a 
particularly difficult opening 
hole and a birdie opportunity. 
Could play as short as a one- 
iron and a wedge. Degree of 
Difficulty (out of 10): 5. 

Hole 2 Mak Siccar. A 
difficult driving hole. Often 
plays downwind, making it 
easier, but you must think 
ahead. If pin is on right, vital 
to drive left side of fairway. 
DD: 6 (if wind against, 11 

Hole 3 Blow Wearie. Tee is 
set fairly high up but the green, 
positioned quite low, can be 
obscured by grass mounds. 
Fairway extremely narrow 
and thick rough with grassy 
valleys on right-DD: 8. 

Hole 4 Woe-be-Ttde. Basin- 
type green shaped to kick the 
tell in; if you don't do this the 
undergrowth encircling green 
is wicked stuff. Depending on 
wind, will play to anything 
between six- and nine-iron. 
DD: 5. 

Hole 5 Fin 'me oot Length- 
ened by 30 yards, a more 
demanding hole than in 1977, 
with bunkers now very much 
in play. Drive to the right to 
get best approach. DD: 7. 

Hole 6 Tappie Toorie. Stand 
there and hope to hit a one- or 
two-iron dead straight If you 
do miss the green, n must be 
to the leftA reasonably large 
target can mean a monster 
putt DD: 7. 

Hole 7 Roon the Ben: 
Swinging left-hand dog-leg. 
and second shot best played 
from the righL With wind 
behind, a good birdie chance. 
DD: 6 (if wind against, 8). 


Hole 8 Coat Felt Slightly 
blind tee shot to a none too 
generous fairway, which 
slopes from left to rightEasy 
to miss the green on left, 
where grass can be very thick. 
DD: 6. 

Hole 9 Bruce’s Castle. One 
of best-known holes in golf 
but not one of my 
favourilesJJaddle- backed fair- 
way makes it difficult to keep 
ball on the straight and narrow 
— and drive must be struck 
hard and straight for a good 
view of the green. DD: 7. 

Hole 10 Dinna Fouter : 
Drive must be kept further 
right than you think to avoid 
straying onto beach — proba- 
bly a one-iron or three-wood. 
Can play relatively easy with 
no wind. DD: 6. 

Hole 11 Maidens: Well- 
bunkered hole, slightly up-hill, 
that can require a three- or 
four-iron. Out of bounds lurks 
on left and if pin is placed on 
front of green and to avoid 
bunkers you must not come 
up short. DD: 5. 

Hole 12 Monument: 
Lengthened by 57 yards, it has 
become imperative to hit the 
fairway. Bunkers on left very 
much in play and rough is 
very thick. DD: 6. 

Hole 13 Tic/dy Tap: A 
demanding driving hole. Very 
easy to miss fairway on the 
righL If you do you can be 
"dead” in the gorse. DD: 7. 

Hole 14 Risk-an-Hope. Nar- 
row fairway but the rough 
never seems too bad in this 
area. Drive down the right for 
best approach to a well- 
bunkered green. DD: 7.

Hole 15 Ca Carry. 
Turn berry's very own valley 
of sin waits on green's right 
side to catch faded, pushed or 
sliced tee shot, especially since 
front right bunker has been 
removed. DD: 8. 

Hole 16 Wee Burn: AH you 
can see from the tee is left half 
of fairway, but the most 
difficult shot is the approach 
over Wilson’s BurnJf you 
shorten the hole with a good 
drive, a sound second shot can 
lead to birdie chance. DD: 5. 

Hole 17 Lang Whang: Nar- 
row fairway through shallow 
valley makes it difficult to hit 
large! with drive. Stray into 
the heavy grass among the 
sand dunes to the left and you 
can be looking at a six. If it 
plays easy, you will want a 
birdie each round. DD: 6. 

Hole 18 Ailsa Home: An 
examining hole, if not the very 
best (8th in championship 
golf. Drive can go into die 
bunkers left centre of the 
fairway, but out of bound is to 
the left and a mass of under- 
growth if you stray DD: 7. 


McEnroe 
is back 

Los Angeles (Reuter) — 
John McEnroe wiD return to 
tennis next month, ending a 
six-month absence in which 
he became a father. McEnroe, 
still ranked seventh in the 
world, said yesterday he 
would play in the Stratton 
grand prix tournament on 
August 4, as a tune-up for the 
United States Open. 

"I'm probably in better 
shape than I ever was.” he 
said. "It might come back fast; 
I hope it does. "Asked if his 
"new-found niceness'' would 
extend to officials, he- said: 
"Hopefully. Some of it's just 
the willingness to accept 
sometimes that you're wrong. 
I've got to look at it different- 
ly, nor waste my energy.” 

Still all-ticket 

Leeds's away games next 
season will continue to be all- 
ticket matches. A request from 
Leeds was sanctioned by the 
Football Association yester- 
day following the success of 
last season's arrangements, 
when the Yorkshire dub re- 
stricted the sale of tickets to 
their season-ticket holders and 
members of the official 
supporters' dub. 


Greg Norman, never a man 
'to shirk a controversial issue, 
gave a new slant to the debate 
over the condition of the 
Turnberry course for the Open 
championship. "We may be' 
getting near the position,” he 
said yesterday, "when the 
players may consider taking 
legal action in the event of 
injury.” 

He thought it quite likely 
that a (flayer might damage a 
wrist in trying to rescue a 
wayward shot off the fairway 
and it might be possible that 
the R & A could be held 
responsible in law. 

“They sue for anything in 
the United States nowadays,” 
he added, and by way of 
illustration be recalled the 
heartrending experience of a 
burglar in Los Angeles who 
had slipped over with the swag 
bag on bis back. Hie burglar 
apparently had succeeded in 
an action in the courts against 
the owner of the property. 

secre- 


so far held, the Masters and 
the United States Open. 

The severity of Turnberry, 
he thinks, reduces the number 
of possible winners to “12- 
15.” The course was the 
hardiest test of golf be had 
ever experienced, especially 
now that the wind had ar- 
rived. A score of 292, 12 over 
par, or even 295, could be 
good enough to win. Earlier in 
the week Ballesteros had 
talked optimistically about 
four or five under par. 

There had been much com- 
ment, Norman said, about the 
difficulties of the United 
States Open last month, "but 
Turnberry made Shinnecock 
Hills look like Augusta: Some- 
times you can’t see anywhere 
to drive out there. Allowing 
for the wimL the fairways 
realistically were sometimes 
only eight to ten yards wide.”

Budd is

By David Miller 

' The typists employed by 
Comm o nwealth Games F« 
ation would appear to ww 
inordinately slowly. How else 
could it take the federation; 
three days to produce the- 
doling of their decision »; 
Sunday that Zola Badd and 
Annette Cowley were ineligi- 
ble for the Edinburgh Games? 

There mast have been notes 
*■1™, so it is only a matter of 
producing a typed script and 
fairing it hy hand from one 
Edinburgh office to another to. 
comply with fire English 
council's request for a fuu, 
immediate explanation. 

The truth, need one suggest, 

is probably that Darid Dixon, 
the honorary secreta ry, i s

the decision taken by Peter 
Heady, the federation chair- 
man, together with S S Raqd 
the legal adviser from Kenya, • 
and Mi ffi tflf , in such a way as : . 
to be conrindng. . 

Additionally, the longer the:, 
federation can stall, the less 
opportunity for England to 
challenge the legality of the 
decision in the courts so that 
the two competitors may stiff 
take part. 

' Sir Arthar Gold, England’s 
chairman, confirms that, until 
the situation is resolved, the 
subutissioD of the two entries . 
must hold, as otherwise the 
En glish council would be fail-„ 
mg .in their responsibility.' 
There Is, therefore, the pos»- 
bHity that Budd and Cowley,

an English court, by whose law

the same quarter, the south, 
but past experience and 


rather less than worried stiff at 
the prospect. "We do not force 
them to play,” he said. “It is 
like deciding whether (fr not to 
play out of a bush.” All the 
same he would check the R & 
A insurance policy. They were 
"indemnified for anything 
you could think of,” but he 
was not sure if anyone had 
thought about a player doing 
himself a mischief in the way 
that Norman had suggested. 

The rugged Australian must 
be on anyone's short list for 
the title this week in view of 
his d a z zlin g form so for this 
season. He leads the United 
States money list with the vast 
sum of 5547,000 (£370,000) 
and has made a strong run at 
the two main championships 


present expectations warn us 
against taking anything for 
granted. The forecast indeed is 
that the wind wfll come.from 
the west today and so present 
a new set of problems. 

There is something of a 
lottery in luck with the weath- 
er, according to Norman, with 
tee times ranging from 7.30 
am to 4.25 pin. "Starting from 
two tees would help everyone 
to get a fair share.” 

But such is his self-confi- 
dence and such is the quality j 
of his golf nowadays that you 
know he would back himselfl 
against allcomers in any con- j 
dilions. And with good j 
reason. 


Evidence has emerged since 

Sunday which reveals Heady 

to have been more hasty iatLis 

rash to -appease the black 
nations of the Conunontrealth, 
and to be sHffering mere 
deeper nriscmceptiiMis, than 
was at first supposed. 

The impromptu meeting Was
