Howe to urge £2, 


action on 
South Africa 


• Sir Geoffrey Howe warned Mrs 
Thatcher that farther measures against 
Sooth Africa are inevitable and will 
recommend action to Cabinet today 


• At least eight people died In two of 
Sooth Africa's black tribal homelands 
in attacks blamed on armed anti* 
apartheid insnrgents 


• The Government told a Commons 
c o mmi ttee that trade and other mea- 
sures against South Africa would hurt 
Britain's external trade 


• The US Ambassador to Zambia met 
leaders of the African National Con- 
gress yesterday in the first official US 
contact, an ANC spokesman said 

By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 


Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, back from 
his fruitless mission to South 
Africa, told the Prime Min- 
ister last night of his conclu- 
sion that further measures 
against the Pretoria regime are 
inevitable. 

The Cabinet meets today to 
discuss its strategy for next 
week's Commonwealth sum- 
mit and will be presented with 
Sir Geoffrey's judgement that 
Britain has no choice, after 
President Botha's rejection of 
all his main demands, but to 
go along with a limited pack- 
age of further measures. 

Sir Geoffrey, met Mrs That- 
cher knowing that she would 
have to be convinced about 
the need for further action. He 
told her that he saw no point 
in returning to Pretoria, bar- 
ring a sudden conversion by 
Mr Botha which resulted in 
the release of Mr Nelson 
Mandela, the imprisoned Af- 
rican - National Congress 
leader. 

Those who accompanied Sir 
Geoffrey on his mission were 
struck by Mr Botha's lack of 
understanding or appreciation 
over the personal efforts by 
President Reagan and Mrs 
Thatcher to delay the im- 
plementation of sanctions and 
trying instead to proceed by 
way of negotiations with him. 

Sir Geoffrey briefed Mrs 
Thatcher at two separate 
meetings as pressure for sanc- 
tions built up from politicians 
of all parties and Common- 
wealth leaders. 


The all-party Commons 
Foreign Affairs Committee, in 
a repon completed only days 
ago, had concluded lhat if the 
Foreign Secretary returned 
empty-handed pressure for the 
imposition of further mea- 
sures would be ‘•intense". 

Failing an early response 
from the South Africans it was 
likely lhat the industrialized 
countries, including Britain 
would feel compelled to follow 
the course of sanctions. 

The Cabinet is expected 
today to agree in principle to 

Pretoria's position 5

Commonwealth? 12 
Leading article 13 

further measures but only if 
they agreed by the inter- 
national community. 

Mrs Thatcher's colleagues 
believe that she will in the end 
reluctantly go along with some 
further action - although she 
will fight to limit them — but 
she will insist that they cannot 
be agreed until the European 
Council meets towards the 
end of September to consider 
the results of Sir Geoffrey's 
mission. 

The Government’s posture 
will therefore be unlikely to 
satisfy the other six Common- 
wealth leaders who have be- 
gun arriving in London for the 
summit starting on Sunday. 

The measures eventually to 
be agreed are likely to be a bon 


on coal and steel imports and 
new investment. They would 
involve the United States, 
Europe and the Common- 
wealth, but fall well short of 
what most of the Common- 
wealth want. 

The Foreign Affairs Com- 
mittee. in a report which 
avoided any firm recom- 
mendations in an attempt to 
keep an all-party consensus, 
nevertheless issued a firm 
warning about the dangers of 
the Commonwealth breaking 
up. 

The committee, which has 
seven Conservative members 
and four Labour, said that 
membership and leadership of 
the Commonwealth was un- 
doubtedly an important dip- 
lomatic asset for Britain . 

It went on: “The danger of 
the disintegration of the 
Commonwealth as a result of 
differences about policy to- 
wards South Africa is not to be 
dismissed lightly. 

“Just as a single country's 
decision to withdraw from die 
Commonwealth Games has 
precipitated similar action by 
a majority of other Common- 
wealth states, so also could the 
threat of withdrawal by a 
single country — notice of 
which has already been given 
by the President of Zambia — 
precipitate a series of with- 
drawals of membership by 
other countries, or even a 
demand that Britain should 
withdraw, which would negate 
the purposes of the Com- 
monwealth."

At least eight people have 
been killed in two of South 
Africa's black tribal home- 
lands in what appears to have 
been armed attacks by anti- 
apartheid insurgents in the 
past 48 hours. 

The dead included the Min- 
ister of Internal Affairs of 
KwaNdebele, Mr Piet Ntuli, 
whose car exploded in Siya- 
buswa, the homeland's cap- 
ital, on Tuesday night, acc- 
ording to the Bureau for 
Information in Pretoria. 

Another seven people — 
three policemen and four 
civilians — were also kilied in 
an attack by men armed with 
AK 47 rifles and hand gre- 
nades on the police station in 
Urmaia, the capital of the 
Xhosa-speaking Transkei, in 
the Eastern Chpe, which is one 
of four tribal homelands to 
have accepted “independen- 
ce" from Pretoria. 

KwaNdebele, about 70 
miles north-east of Pretoria, 


has been in turmoil since the 
beginning of the year because 
of the homeland Governme- 
nt's decision to accept in- 
dependence on December 1 1 
of last year. 

Mr Ntuli was the right-hand 
man of Mr Simon Skosana, 
KwaNdebde's Chief Minister, 
and headed a black vigilante 
unit widely held responsible 
for the m urder of fellow blacks 
opposed to both independence 
and the Moutse deal. 

Recently, KwaNdebele's tri- 
bal administration -has been 
reported to be having second 
thoughts about independence, 
which would strip its 300,000 
residents of South African 
citizenship and any daim on 
political rights in South Af- 
rica. 

Meanwhile, a full bench of 
the Graham stown Supreme 
Court has invalidated curfews 
and bans on public meetings 
and funerals in the Eastern 
Cape 


‘will be 
eroded’ 

By Our Chief 
Political Correspondent 

The imposition of trade and 
other measures against Sooth 
Africa would ran counter to 
Britain's interest as a nation 
dependent on external trade, 
the Government said in ev- 
idence to the Commons Select 
Committee on Foreign Affairs. 

A Foreign Office memoran- 
dum to the committee, initially 
confidential but made public 
with the committee's report 
yesterday, declined to repeat 
predictions by the Government 
that sanctions against South 
Africa would cost Britain 
about 120,000 jobs. It said 
instead that calculations of the 
affect “must necessarily be 
imprecise". 

However it said that (here 
could be no doubt that a 
significant number of jobs, 

particularly in engineering, 
transport equipment and 
chemicals, were dependent on 
Britain's visible and invisible 
trade with South Africa. The 
United Kingdom was currently 
well placed in the South 
African market, both as the 
third- largest supplier and as 
the largest foreign investor. 

“It is clear that, even if only 
partial sanctions were applied, 
there are few measures which 
would not have an adverse 
affect on one sector or another 
or which would not help to 
erode the UK's advantage in 
the market. 

“Moreover given the rel- 
atively higher percentage of 
our exports going to South 
Africa, by comparison' with 
those of our major competitors 
and our extensive investment 
interest we have more to lose 
than oar competitors. All mea- 
sures would be likely to dam- 
age the UK's extensive 
interests in South Africa and 
reduce the value of invest- 
ments there, if only by further 
undermining confidence." 

The memorandom slated 
that the banning of Sooth 
African imports could also 
cause considerable problems. 
Such imports consisted largely 
of raw materials and agri- 
cultural products, the banning 
of which could disrqpt sup- 
plies to industry and the 
consumer. 

Although alternative 
sources could doubtless be 
found, prices would probably 
be higher. That could have 
Implications for employment. 

The memorandum added 
that retaliation could further 
exacerabate the effect in Brit- 
ain. It could include import 
restrictions out of proportion 
to those introduced by the UK, 
measures taken against Brit- 
ish investments in South Af- 
rica and export restrictions. 

Sooth Africa remained the 
seventeenth hugest market for 
UK export goods, valued at 
more than £1 billion in 1985. 
According to the most recent 
survey, the book value of UK 
investment in South Africa at 
the end of 1981 was £2J8 bil- 
lion. A rough estimate of the 
book value of UK direct 
investment indicated that it 
was worth about £3 billion at 
the end of 1984 and £2 billion 
at the end of 1985. 

The paper stated that un- 
official estimates put the value 
of UK portfolio investment in 
South Africa at £6 billion but 
It said that the figures must be 
treated with caution because in

Thatcher cancels arts festival visit 

By John Good body 


Mrs Margaret Thatcher has 
bowed to Edinburgh's Labour- 
controlled district council and 
will not be visiting the 
Commonwealth Games arts 
festival in the city's Assembly 
Rooms, which the council 
owns. There will be no civic 
reception. 

However the Prime Min- 
ister, who arrives in Scotland 
later today, will go to 
Meadowbank stadium tomor- 
row, since she has been in- 


vited by the organizers and the 
Commonwealth Games 
Federation. Dr John McKay, 
the Lord Provost of Edin- 
burgh, has said that it was the 
“unconsidered remarks” of 
the Prime Minister about nor 
imposing full economic sanc- 
tions on South Africa that 
sparked off the boycott of 32 
members of the federation. 

Mr Robert MaxwelL, co- 
chairman of the organizing 
committee, criticized the 


council for failing to distin- 
guish between its members* 
responsibilities as city fathers 
and their role as local party 
politicians. 

Mr Maxwell yesterday met 
the Prince and Princess of 
Wales when they visited the

drawn from the 1.500m race

Editor to 
head the 
National 
Gallery 

By Gavfc Bel! 

Arts Correspondent 
Mr Neil MacGregor, editor 
of The Burlington Magazine, 
has been selected as the new 
director of the National Gal- 
lery- His appointment is ex- 
pected to be announced by the 
Prime Minister’s office today. 

A Civil Service panel which 
interviewed 10 candidates ear- 
lier this month maintained 
secrecy about its recom- 
mendations yesterday, but a 
highly-placed source said that 
Mr MacGregor was offered 
the job. 

His appointment to succeed 
Sir Michael Levey to one of 
the most important positions 
in British art will be seen as 
innovative. Mr MacGregor, a 
former lecturer in the history 
of art and architecture, has no 
experience of directing a gal- 
lery. However, he is said to 
have impressed the panel with 
his urbane manner and imagi- 
native responses. 

A tribute to the new director 
came yesterday from Mr 
Timothy Clifford, director of 
the National Gallery of Scot- 
land. who had been a leading 
candidate for the position. He 
said: “Neil is a very charming 
person, and I shall look for- 
ward to collaborating with 
him." 

The selection process was 
delayed last week when the 
panel's first choice, Mr Ed- 
mund Pillsbury, director of 
the Kimball Art Museum in 
Fort Worth. Texas, changed 
his mind and withdrew. 

Mr Pillsbury is understood 
to have been dismayed by 
suggestions that as an Ameri- 
can, he should not be given a 
position of responsibility for 
preserving art treasures in 
Britain. 

Mr Jacob Rothschild, chair- 
man of the Gallery’s trustees, 
said last month that he would 
prefer a British director.

Observer. Journalists at the 
paper yesterday voiced out- 
right opposition to proposals 
to move to a new plant in 
Battersea next March with, 
possibly, the printing being 
shifted to Mr Eddie Shah's 

troubled Today. 

Sources at The Observer last 
night Ipcfeted that no final 
decision on a move bad been 
made but confirmed that a 
transfer to a three-slimy 
building under construction 
near Battersea power station 
was being looked at “very 
closely". 

If such a move took place, it 
woold lead to about 550 mem- 
bers of the National Graphical 
Association being made redun- 


dant, though members of 
Sog&t *82 would be retained in 
the composing room. 

An emergency meeting of 
The Observer's National 
Union of Journalists' chapel 
(office branch) was held yes- 
terday afternoon when it was 
believed the move was going to 
be presented to them as a fait 

accompli. 

The chapel decided not to 
co-operate with any plans fora 
move nntil formal talks mi new 
technology were held and foil 
details of the company's plans 
were unrated. NUJ sources 
also said the resolution to 
management bad warned that 
a move to Battersea could 
harm the editorial quality of 
the paper. 

The Observer, owned by Mr 
Tiny Rowland's Lonhra, is 
currently printed at its offices 
in St Andrew's Hill in the City 
of London. The failure to at- 


tract a contract customer to 
use the presses, which stand 
idle six days a week, is the 
main reason for management's 
desire to move. 

A formal announcement on 
the management's proposals 
for The Observer is planned for 
late August. Last night neither 
Lonrho nor the paper would 
comment on its plans. 

Mr Rowland took a 36 per 
cent stake In Today earlier this 
year as part of a rescue 
package. Since then there has 
been increasing speculation 
that a move of offices by The 
Observer woold be accompa- 
nied by a switch to Today’s 
non-union presses. 

However, Mr Terry Cassi- 
dy, the new managing director 
of Today brought in by Mr 
Rowland, yesterday denied 
any plans to print The Ob- 
server on the paper's hi-tech 
plant. 


There was “no question" he 
insisted, of printing The Ob- 
server, nor of ditching Sunday 
Today, whose sales are even 
lower than its weekday 
companion. 

“7Sf Observer has never 
talked about os printing their 
newspaper. There have been 
no talks and no discussions.” 
he said. 

“One day they might come 
to us and say 'Would yon print 
oer newspaper' hot they 
haven't yet." 

The Observer management 
is said to be ready to offer 

generous redundancy pay- 
ments to sacked NGA men. 
The question of whether Sogat 
workers would be happy to be 
tied to a Today plant which is 
printed without muons, re- 
mains to be resolved. 

Observer editor, Mr Donald 
Trelford. was not available for 
comment last night.

Miami (A P/Reuter i — At 
least seven people were in- 
jured, one critically, and all 
897 passengers evacuated in 
lifeboats when fire broke out 
after an explosion on the 
cruise ship Emerald Seas 
about 50 miles north of Nas- 
sau and 130 miles east of 
Miami yesterday. 

The Coast Guard said the 
ship was in the Berry Islands, 
and that the fire, which look 
2‘A hours lo control, started 
after an explosion in the 
storeroom. There were no 
immediate details of damage. 

The Coast Guard said the 
critically injured person was 
burned, but he had no further 
detail on injuries, including 
whether the injured were pas- 
sengers or crew. 

The Coast Guard planned 
to fly the injured to a hospital 
in Nassau, but the critically 
injured person will then be 
flown to the Jackson Me- 
morial Hospital burns treat- 
men! centre in Miami, he said. 

The ship, which can carry 
up to 970 passengers, was 
being evacuated as a precau- 
tion. he said. It was not in 
danger of sinking. 

Three Coast Guard heli- 
copters and 3 rescue jet and 
two Coast Guard cutters were 
sent to the scene. Passengers 
in lifeboats were being taken 
to nearby Little Stirrup Cay, a 
tiny island normally used by 
the ship's owners as a special 
tourist attraction. 

• WASHINGTON: An un- 
armed missile fired during a

fighter blew a hole in 
commercial tanker carrying 
26,000 barrels of oil 60 miles 
off Norfolk, Viiginia. a US 
Navy spokesman said yes- 
terday (Reuter reports). 

The explosion caused by the 
F-14 Sidewinder air-to-air 
missile started a small fire on 
the Western Sun. but there 
were no injuries. 


The Labour MP for the 
Merseyside constituency of 
Knows ley North, Mr Robert 
Kilroy-Silk is quitting politics, 
claiming he has been driven 
out by members of the far-left 
Militant Tendency in his 
constituency. 

He said yesienday:“They 
have destroyed my will to 
continue as an MP." 

Mr Kilroy-Silk.. aged 44. is 
to join BBC television as the 
presenter of a new discussion 
programme. 

He bad a 1 7.000 majority in 
the last election and, as a 
former front bench spokes- 
man for Labour on home 
affairs, could have expected a 
ministerial post in a future 
Labour government. 

His decision to leave in 
September ends a long and 
bruising re-selection battle 
with his constituency's Mili- 
tant members. He said: “l 
cannot continue for three 
years being constantly under- 
mined. abused, shouted at and 
vilified by my own party and 
remain an enthusiast for 
politics. 

“I wanted to be an MP from 
the age of 16. 1 read politics at 
The London School of 
Economics and then taught 
politics at Liverpool Univer- 
sity so I could be an MP, and I 
never thought this day would 
come. But die extremists have 
destroyed my wish to carry 
on.” 

The Militant-inspired cam- 
paign to have Mr Kilroy-Silk 
de-selected began after he won 
the new seal of Knowsley 
North, which includes two 
vast housing estates on the 
outskirts of Liverpool, in 
1983. He had formerly been 
MP for Ormskirk since 1974. 

Mr Kilroy-Silk was being 
challenged by two far-left can- 
didates. Mr Keva Coombes 
and Mr Tony Mulhearn. when 
the Labour Party national 
executive committee halted 
the re-selection process last 
November and ordered an 
inquiry into alleged irregular- 
ities into the composition of 
the Knowsley North constit- 
uency party management 
committee. The inquiry has 
still to be held. Mr Mulhearn 
has subsequently been ex- 


pelled from the Labour party 
for a being a member of 
Militant. 

Mr Kilroy-Silk said: “The 
militants have ‘packed* the 
management committee with 
their own supporters who 
have no right to be there. 1 am 
confident that if everything 
about the election were proper 
and above-board i would win 
it- But about three weeks ago I 
finally decided ! would not 
stand again. I mentioned the 
decision to a friend and 
subsequently I was ap- 
proached by the BBC. I ac- 
cepted the offer almost 
immediately." 

Asked if he did not feel it 
was wonh slaying in the party 
and fighting the militants 
from within, he said: “People 
come up to me at all sorts of 
functions from the left and the 
right of the Labour party and 
shake me warmly by the hand 
and say * you're doing a great 
job. stick with it, the friture of 
the Labour party depends on 
you.' then they walk away and 
it's me that's left with no 
support nationally or locally 
and my family that has to 
suffer from the stress. 

“Campaigns such as I have 
faced make it impossible to do 
your job properly as an MP. 
You cannot give proper lime 
to your constituency duties. It 
is completely debilitating.” 

He went on: “I am still an 
enthusiastic Socialist and J 
would like nothing better than 
a Labour victory at the next 
election. I am from the work- 
ing class and my mother still 
lives in her council house in 
Birmingham where I was 
bora, and most of the rest of 
my family still work in Bir- 
mingham factories. 

“But the people who have 
been campaigning against me 
do not represent the true 
Labour party. They have de- 
stroyed the Labour party in 
Knowsley North. They are 
just an extremist sect which 
has no affinity with ordinary 
people and no deep roots in 
the values of democracy, tol- 
erance or freedom. 

“They are ruthless 
conspiritorial revolutionaries 
who represent something very

Car bomber executed 


Beirut — Militiamen of the 
Shia Muslim Amal move- 
ment, led by Mr Nabih Beni, 
Lebanon's Justice Minister, 
yesterday took justice into 
their own hands by publicly 
executing a car bomber. They 
had sentenced him to death 
for plotting to blow up a 
militia office in West Beirut 
with a car loaded with 770 lb 
of explosives three months 
ago (Juan Carlos Gumucio 
writes). 

Blindfolded and with his 
hands tied behind his back, 
Moheiddeen Saleh, aged 23, a 
Sunni Muslim, was forced to 


lie on the ground. Watched by 
a crowd of 1. 000 people, two 
militiamen then fired at least 
10 rounds from Kalashnikov 
automatic rifles at him from 
close range. 

“He killed many people and 
wanted to kill more,” an Amal 
militiaman said. 

The execution was clearly 
aimed as a naming after two 
car bomb attacks killed 55 
people in Christian and Mus- 
lim sectors of Beirut this week. 

It came as both sides ac- 
cused one another of the 
attacks. 


American 
trade gap 
tops $14bn 

From Bailey Morris 
Washington 

The United States suffered 
another massive trade gap_ in 
June, with the S14.21 billion 
deficit topping the expecta- 
tions of analysts. 

Officials at the US Com- 
merce Department blamed a 
continued inflow of low-cost 
oil imports and another sharp 
deterioration in agricultural 
trade. 

These figures started profit- 
taking in the dollar. 

The only bright spots were a 
downwards revision of the 
May deficit - from SI 4.28 
billion to $ 1 3. 1 2 billion — and 
a cut in the trade gap with 
Japan to S3.69 billion from 
May's $4.9 billion.

Private sector unveils 
new move to stimulate 
development of cities 

By Christopher Wannan, Property Correspondent 


An initiative to stimulate 
the regeneration of Britain's 
cities by promoting public and 
private enterprise in urban 
renewal was launched yes- 
terday with the full support of 
the Department of the 
Environment. 

This private sector move, 
called the Phoenix Initiative, 
will also provide a focus of 
private sector advice to min- 
isters on urban regeneration. 

The announcement of the 
new venture came on a dav 
when figures revealed that 
building firms in the South 
were reporting promising or- 
der books while firms in the 
North were at a low ebb. 

The sponsoring board of the 
Phoenix Initiative, under the 
chairmanship of Sir Colin 
Comess. president of the Na- 
tional Council of Buiidiog 
Materia! Producers, aims to 
promote activity and enthu- 
siasm at a local level, pul 
together schemes and involve 
local authorities and 
developers. 

The board will have a 
representative from the 
department as well as leaders 
in the housing field including 
building, banking and build- 
ing societies. 


It takes as one of its 
blueprints for action the re- 
port The Phoenix Partnership 
— Urban regeneration for the 
Jlst century, published by the 
National Council of Building 
Material Producers, which ad- 
vocates a partnership between 
public and private sectors, a 
nationwide programme of ur- 
ban development action 
grants and the setting up of 
urban development corpora- 
tions on the lines of the 
London Docklands Develop- 
ment Corporation where 
necessary. 

The board hopes to pro- 
mote the various initiatives 
proposed under the new 
Housing and Planning Bill, 
such as widened powers for 
building societies.lt will be 
based at St Katharine's Dock 
by Tower Bridge. 

Mr Nicholas Ridley. Sec- 
retary of State for the Environ- 
ment. said that he and Mr 
John Patten, the Minister for 
Housing, welcomed the the 
initiative. 

“’The positive involvement 
of the private sector in the task 
of regenerating and improving 
our cities is at the heart of the 
Government's policies to 


tackle these deep-seated 
problems." Meanwhile the 
Building Employers Confed- 
eration said that the number 
of firms working at full or 
almost full capacity stands at a 
higher level in the Midlands 
and south compared with 
nonhem regions, wiih the 
exception of Yorkshire where 
the figure is 59 per cent. In 
London capacity working was 
noted among 62 per cent of 
firms, with 47 per cent in the 
Midlands and 68 per cent in 
South Wales, an increase there 
from 38 per cent last 
December. 

Overall. 5 1 per cent of firms 
expect their workload for 1 986 
to be higher than in 1985. 
while only 1 7 per cent expect 
it to fall. This confirms the 
optimistic expectations for the 
1986 workload of many 
observers in the building in- 
dustry. But future prospects 
are less certain. 

The n umber of firms report- 
ing increases in inquiries for 
new work has fallen from 35 
per cent last December to 30 
per cent in March and 27 per 
cent now, with the decline 
particularly severe in many 
nonhem regions. 


Star name 
is open 
for offers 

By David Saps ted 

Martina Navratilova Ltd. 
which has not done a day's 
business in its shori life and 
has nothing to do with the six- 
times Wimbledon champion, 
is for sale. 

An unknown Londoner, 
reputedly on the fringe of the 
entertainment world, struck 
on the quite legal ruse of 
creating a company in the 
tennis star's name, without 
her permission, and immedi- 
ately putting it up for sale. 

Mr Stephen Bland, a west 
London chartered accountant, 
acting on behalf of the un- 
named client, said yesterday 
that his first act had been to 
try to sell the paper company 
to Miss Navratilova. 

*i contacted the Inter- 
national Management Group 
(the player's agent) in the 
Stales and they called me back 
earlier this week. I haven't 
heard from them since and 
they have not made an offer 
yet.” he said. 

“Really, I would prefer Miss 
Navratilova to have it but at 
the end of the day it will go to 
the highest bidder." 

There is nothing in British 
law to prevent a well-known 
person’s name being used in 
the establishment of a limited 
company, so long as one does 
not exist already with an 
identical or similar title. 

Mr Bland, whose name and 
that of his wife appear as sole 
directors and shareholders, 
said: "Unless companies al- 
ready exist there is nothing to 
stop anyone else doing the 
same thing with a million 
other sports stars or pop 
singers or entertainers 
. . . just about anybody." 


Police to retain 
rent allowance 


The Government yesterday 
lost its appeal against a High 
Court ruling that Mr Leon 
Brittan. the former Home 
Secretary, exceeded his pow- 
ers by attempting to change 
the system used to calculate 
police rent allowances without 
consulting the Police Nego- 
tiating Board. 

Lord Justice Purehas, Lord 
Justice Lloyd and Lord Justice 
GlidewelL upheld a ruling in 
February which outlawed the 
proposed changes. 

Lord Justice Purehas said 
that the changes, set out in a 
1984 Home Office circular, 
affected the system under 
which police authorities val- 
ued a “typical" police house in 
their area as the basis for 
setting rent allowances. 

Mr Brittan proposed that 
the Home Office should be 
able to reject the “typical" 
house as suitable for valuation 


if its rateable value was more 
than 10 percent of the average 
rateable value of an auth- 
ority's total housing stock. 

The Police Federation 
feared that, by forcing authori- 
ties to consider older police 
houses, allowances would be 
reduced. 

Lord Justice Lloyd said that 
the effect of the proposed 
changes on allowances was 
such as to require further 
consultation by the Home 
Secretary. It was not enough to 
leave open an opportunity for 
negotiations with individual 
authorities at a later stage. 

The lest case was brought by 
two officers. Police Constable 
Michael Bennett of Bamfield 
Avenue. Romiley, Greater 
Manchester, and Police Con- 
stable Michael Thornton, of 
Ballathie Close. Ingsbridge Es- 
tate, Hull, with the backing of 
the Police Federation. 


Grant ‘discriminated 
against single mother’ 


Government grams for 
adult vocational training dis- 
criminated against unmarried 
mothers, a High Court judge 
ruled yesterday. 

The judgement was a vic- 
tory for the National Council 
for One-Parent Families 
which supported a claim by 
Miss Peggy Schaffter, an un- 
married mother, that the re- 
fusal to give her the same 
grant as that received by 
married one-parent families 
was sexual discrimination. 

Miss Schaffter, now a 
probation officer, of Kendal 
Way. Chesterton. Cambridge, 


was refused a “hardship 
allowance" with her grant 
when she began a four-year 
social studies course at 
Middlesex Polytechnic in 
1981. 

The Secretary of State for 
Education and Science de- 
fended the decision, saying 
that as the percentage ol 
unmarried male one-parent 
families was the same as 
female there could be no 
discrimination. 

The judge disagreed It ap- 
peared that four times as 
many single female parents as 
male were ineligible.

Drive begins 
for sale of 
British Gas 

By Martin Balter 

The marketing for die sale 
of British Gas, the Govern- 
ment's largest privatization 
project, began yesterday with 
organizers of the issue hoping 
to attract more than the 
2.3 million people who sub- 
scribed to British Telecom. 

An intensive campaign of 
advertising and explanation is 
planned during the next four 
months in an attempt to 
ensure that “98 per cent of the 
country ” will be aware of the 
flotation. 

Preferential treatment will 
be given to share applications 
from British Gas employees. 
Subscribing consumers will 
have the choice between dis- 
counts on gas bills and a bonus 
issue of shares. Tenants of 
rented property and occupiers 
of shared accommodation 
may qualify as consumers, 
although only one favoured 
application per metered gas 
supply will be allowed. 

The British Gas issue is 
expected to raise up to three 
times the £2,500 million 
which resulted from the Brit- 
ish Telecom sale.

‘Stop sale 
of school 
land’ plea 

By Mark Dowd 

The Government is backing 
a drive to sell many acres of 
school playing fields and 
recreation grounds, a con- 
ference was told yesterday. 

Mr Nicholas Griffin, the 
head teacher from Friera Bar- 
net in north London, said a 
combination of falling num- 
bers of children on school rolls 
and financial restrictions were 
giving education authorities 
the necessary encouragement 
to dispose of land. 

Mr Griffin told the Pro- 
fessional Association of 
Teachers' annual conference 
in Manchester, that a list of 
endangered recreation sites 
had teen drawn np at the 
meeting of the Central Council 
of Physical Recreation last 
week. The list contained 487 
sites in 55 local authorities. 

He said in Nottinghamshire 
48 sites were at risk and in the 
West Midlands 66 areas were 
thought to be surplus to 
requirements. Other threat- 
ened areas included South 
Glamorgan with 28 sites and 
the London boroughs of Red- 
bridge and Hillingdon each 
with 17 threatened playing 
areas. 

Mr Griffin said that every- 
thing must be done to retain 
the use of these facilities, not 
only by educational institu- 
tions, but also by the commu- 
nity outside of schools. 

“The first Duke of Welling- 
ton said that the battle of 
Waterloo was won on the 
playing fields of Eton. It is as 
well that we have no Waterloo 
to fight at the moment, as the 
playing fields are in danger of 
being eroded by their possible 
sale for development. 

“I believe the effect of these, 
and similar sites, will mean 
that independent schools will 
be the oaly schools with 
adequate playing space to 
indulge in our national 
competitive sports." 

The conference agreed to 
urge the Government and local 
authorities to take “all reason- 
able steps to preserve the 
provision of sporting facilities 
for our schools". 

A spokesman for the 
Department of Education said 
yesterday that it was a matter 
for local authorities to dedde 
which sites were considered 
surplus to their requirements. 

in no way, the spokesman 
said, could it be described as 
an initiative backed by central 
Government. 

• Delegates rejected a motion 
that market forces should 
apply in schools to allow 
higher salaries to be paid to 
teachers of shortage subjects. 


MPs to visit US 
private prisons 

By Sbefla Gunn, Political Staff 


MPs are to visit privately 
owned prisons in the United 
States to see if such schemes 
could help to solve the prob- 
lem of overcrowding in 
Britain's jails. 

Lord Glenarthur, Par- 
liamentary Under-Secretary at 
the Home Office, who has 
responsibility for the Prison 
Service, sets off m September 
for a 10-day tour of modem 
and experimental prisons sys- 
tems. 

The Home Office said that 
yesterday that there were no 
plans to privatize British 
prisons. 

Among those on Lord 
Glenarthur's itinerary are the 
Manhattan house of detention 
and the Hamilton county jail 
in Chattanooga. 

He is believed to be particu- 
larly interested in modern 
prison buildings, designed to 
be run by fewer staff and with 
a more liberal regime. 

The all-party Commons 
home affairs select committee 
plans a similar visit in Octo- 
ber. Sir Edward Gardner, the 
committee chairman, de- 
scribed it as “part of an 
ambitious investigation into, 
the present crisis in the prison 
system”. 

Some Conservative MPs 


have urged the Government 
to consider privatizing British 
jails as a way of coping with a 
prison population which has 
risen to more than 47,000. 

Sir Edward, Conservative 
MP for Fylde, said that he had 
an open mind on the issue. “I 
think this is an idea worth 
looking at and I do not think 
we can close our minds to any 
solution", he said. 

The trip will include visits 
to: a high-rise jail and a 
correction centre for women 
in New York; the Massachu- 
setts experience, where im- 
prisonment for young of- 
fenders has been abolished; 
private jails in Nashville and 
Florida; and a privately 
owned secure unit for ju- 
veniles in Memphis. • 

The Conservative-domi-. 
nated committee has visited 
Strangeways and Wandsworth 
prisons and will go to other 
British prisons in the autumn. 

Mr John Wheeler, a com- 
mittee member and Con- 
servative MP for Westminster 
North, said that the aim of the 
fact-finding visit was to look 
at imaginative ideas for rack-' 
ling the problem of a rising 
prison population which, was 
facing all democratic coun- 
tries..

Lambeth 
rate rebels 
given time 
to pay 

By HughClayton 
Environment Correspondent 

Mr Ted Knight and other 
surcharged Labour councillors 
from Lambeth, south London, 
have been given -21 months to 
pay their surcharge . ‘ of 
£105,000 for “yritfut 
misconduct" in the . abortive 
Labour rates rebellion 'last, 
year. Payment is to be made in 
interest-free monthly instal- 
ments of £5.000. 

But the £200,000 costs in- 
duced by auditors in fighting 
court cases against Lambeth 
and Liverpool rebels have 
been written off in the latest 
accounts of the Audit 
Commission, the quango that 
appoints . the auditors who 
check council finances: The 
commission said in its annual 
report yesterday that some of 
the money- would never be 
recovered. 

The final amount to be 
recovered will depend on 
arrangements yet to be made 
between surcharged rebels and 
the courts. “We are not yet 
sure how much and at what 
rate," Mr John Banham, 
controller of audit with the 
commission, said. 

The 49 Liverpool rebels 
who include members suchas 
Mr Derek Hatton who have 
been expelled from the Labour 
Party will learn today the: 
outcome of their appeal 
against earlier court confirma- 
tion of an auditor’s verdict 
against them. ■ 

If they lose the case and do 
not appeal they will join thie 
Lambeth rebels in being 
banned from all council office 
for five years. By-elections 
would then have to be held in 
the city for ihe vacated seats. 
The present composition of 
the city council is Labour 54, 
Liberal 37 and Conservative 
seven. 

Failure of Liverpool's ap- 
peal against surcharge and 
banning will trigger-action by 
auditors against seven other 
councils of which, six were 
involved in the 1985, rates 
rebellion. The six were Shef- 
field City Council and -the 
London boroughs of South- 
wark, Camden, Greenwich, 
Hackney and Islington. All 
delayed fixing a rate in the 
hope of forcing spending con- 
cessions . from the 
Government.

Liverpool turns to 
Japanese for help 

Liverpool City CounriLhas 
turned to Japanese bankers to 
solve its latest financial crisis 
and avoid another confronta- 
tion with the Government 
over spending (Peter Daven- 
port writes). 

Its Labour leaders have 
n^otiated a £30 million de- 
ferred purchase arrangement 
with the Japanese bank, 
Yasudo, the zhind time they 
have resorted tosuch schemes 
with international banks since 
takingpower. 

Liverpool faced a £27 mil- 
lion deficit this year and, of 
the £18 million it is taking up 
immediately from the new 
deal. £15 million will go to^ 
wards bridging the' shortfall 
The remaining £3 million will 
go on . home .improvement 
grants. ’• 

The council retains the op- 
tion of taking up the remain- 
ing £12 million from the 
arrangement next year. 

However such a route will 
not be available again because 
the Government, has said that 
it intends to introduce legisla- 
tion. retrospective to mid- 
night July 22, that will forbid 
the use of deferred purchase 
arrangements for revenue 
spending purposes. 

Yesterday Mr Tony B: 
the left-wing chairman oi 
council's finance committee, 
said that the Japanese arrange- 
ment had been finalized be- 
fore the deadline.

Sanctions ‘will erode 
British interests’ 


Continued from page 1 

the present circumstances the 
realisable value seemed likely 
to be much lower. 

The Government’s derision 
not to repeat its 120,000 job- 
loss estimate was regarded-as 
something of a victory by the 
Labour members of the 
committee who have claimed 
that it was far too high. 

The committee said that it 
was not surprised by tbe 
derision not to quote tbe figure 
again. It seemed to be based on 


the assumptions that no other 
changes in die UK’s trading 
arrangements would result 
from its. failure to ! impose 
sanctions. 

The committee noted that 
other estimates were' of an 
altogether lower order. “It is 
evident that the room for 
argument on this matter is 
considerable but ' it is' none 
tbdess dear tiraf there will be 
job losses in die Unfted.King- 
dotn as a result -of the im- 
position of farther sanctions

‘Kamikaze’ cells help in search for cancer drug 


Discoveries about how the 
body normally repairs dam- 
aged cells are being exploited 
by scientists working to pro- 
duce anti-cancer drugs. 

“Kamikaze proteins", so- 
called because they die when 
they have done their repair 
work, are being studied at the 
Imperial Cancer Research 
Fund’s new £16 million Clare 
Hall laboratories, in Hert- 
fordshire. 

Damage to cells is part of 
the wear and tear on the body 
in norma] daily living. If 


uncorrected, cancer may re- 
sult 

, Cells have a complex series 
of enzymes which recognize 
damage, cut it oat and repair 

iL Most of the time, but not 
always, that is successful, 
according to Dr Tomas 
Linda hL head of the lab- 
oratories. 

He has been studying the 
mechanisms by which dam- 
aged DNA. the genetic nucleus 
of the cell, is repaired and 
cancer prevented. 

He discovered the repair 

enzyme that corrects the great-

est damage caused by alkylat- 
ing ageirts, which are the 
biggest group of chemicals 
implicated in curing cancer in 
humans. and the gene that 
produces it 

Dr Lindahl’s work was done 
in the laboratory with micro- 
organisms bat now Dr Peter 
Karran has shown that the 
same gene works In human 
cells, making the cells more 
resfetent to alkylating agents. 

Dr Lindahl said: “We have 
found that most people are 
efficient at repairing 
caused by a series of 


doses. It Is when exposure to 
high doses occurs that the 
system cannot cope.” 

Some body cells are better 
than others at producing the 
repair enzyme and the sci- 
entists are examining which 
types are most vulnerable 

“Once we can develop tests 
to measure the efficiency of the 
repair process in individuals, it 
might be useful to screen 
people working iu industry. 
Certain people should, .per- 
haps, avoid working with 
chemicals that are harmless to - 
most of tbe population." 


. However, the more -immedi-

standina how to ase some anti- 
cancer' drags which are also 
alkylating agents. '

An award of £4X126 dam-

A businessman wanted to

yesterday. 

Mr George Watetson, aged 
49, said he nad nothing to live

successful bicyde business 
had to go into liquidation. 

Later that week Mr 
Waieison, of Arthog Road,

She said her husband suf-

Crime Survey 


More people walk in fear 


By Stewart Tendler, Crime Reporter 


Most people arc more anx- 
ious about their personal 
safety than they were last year, 
according to a crime survey 
published yesterday. Women 
and old people are most 
fearful, and only a few people 
say they arc less anxious. 

The survey, carried out by 
telephone among 456 people 
in the middle of this month, 
was conducted by BJM Re- 
search Partners Group for the 
Association of Market Survey 
Organizations. 

Eighty-seven per cent of 
parents with children aged 


under 14 said they stopped 
them playing alone or in the 
street more than they believed 
their parents had. 

Most respondents (88 per 
cent) felt that people who 
committed serious crimes re- 
ceived sentences that were 
light, compared with those 
that courts meted out for less 
serious crimes. A similar 
number believed that the 
courts were frequently not 
imposing heavy enough 
sentences. 

At the same time a fifth of 
those questioned thought that 


Irradiation

‘should be

By Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 

Government plans to allow 
the irradiation of food should . 
be postponed for up to three 
years to allow adequate safety 
checks to be carried out. the 
National Consumer Council 
says today. 

“We have still to be con- 
vinced that sufficient informa- 
tion exists to be reasonably 
sure that irradiation does not 
pose any new hazards to the 
consumer,” the council chair- 
man, Mr Michael Montague, 
says in a letter to Mr Barney 
Hayhoe, Minister of State for 
Health. 

The letter was made public 
on the final day for submitting 
comments on food irradiation 
to the minister. In April the

Theft marks 
growing loss 
of church art 

The theft of a 460-year-old 
brass figure of a young woman 
from inside St Peter and St 
Paul’s church in Appledore, 
Kent, is the latest of a growing 
trend to steal valuable medi- 
eval English metal works 
(Angella Johnson writes). 

The five-and-three-quarter- 
inch figure (right), of a young 
girl with long flowing hair, 
dressed in a long gown with 
fur cuffs and a headdress, is 
dated . 1520 and it is expected 
that it will end up either in a 
private collection or be sold to 
an antique dealer. 

The Monumental Brass 
Society says that if this trend 
continues the result wittbe a 
gradual erosion of the 8,000 or 
so medieval brass pieces to be 
found in old churches all over

The popular idea of the 
shoplifter as a mentally un-

derly woman is not borne out 
by the bets, according to a 
briefing paper by the National 
Association for the Care and 
Resettlement of Offenders 
(Nacro) published today. 

“As with most other crimes, 
the known offender is typically 
young and male." The propor- 
tion of male shoplifters is 


particularly striking as women 
are generally more responsible 
for shopping. 

“However, there is a higher 
proportion of women (39 per 
cent) among shoplifters who 
are cautioned or convicted 
than among other offenders.*’ 

Nearly half of male and 
female shoplifters are under 
21 years old. Men were more

more likely to be discharged or

Plea to 
doctors 
over 
cough 

By Thomson Prentice 

Science Correspondent 

The medical profession 
throughout Britain is being 
urged to help to fight a 
whooping cough epidemic 
which is due to reach a peak 
this autumn. 

Sir Donald Acheson, chief 
medical officer at the Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security, and Mrs Anne Poole, 
the chief nursing officer, have 
written to doctors and nurses, 
appealing to them to maintain 
the momentum on immuniza- 
tion against the disease, after a 
government-sponsored cam- 
paign launched last 
September. 

immunization rates among 
infants have risen slowly, 
from 51 per cent in 1 982 to 65 
percent in 1984. but are still as 
much as 20 per cent lower 
than vaccinations for other 
diseases. Concern among par- 
ents about possible side effects 
of the whooping cough vac- 
cine has been an important 
factor for the tow rate. 

“If parents can be per- 
suaded to have all susceptible 
children under the age of six 
protected, except where the 
doctor advises against it. the 
level of immunity in the 
population will be such that 
this prolonged and unpleasant 
disease can be virtually 
eliminated,” Sir Donald ana 
Mrs Poole said yesterday. 

Doctors and nurses are 
being told in the Department 
of Health letter that action 
now can still reduce the 
impact of the current epi- 
demic. which occurs in four- 
year cycles. 

• The Royal Society of 
Medicine yesterday called for 
a mass immunization pro- 
gramme for homosexuals 
against hepatitis, who are 500 
times more likely to get the 
disease than heterosexuals.

Towcester beg of a 500-mile 
march by Mgr Kent from the

base in Scotland to the nuclear 


armaments factory at

She said she wanted to show 
the links between disarma- 
ment and development and 
that Third World people were 
dying while the developed 
world was spending money “to 
arm ourselves to death**. 

The march, which will fin- 
ish next week, has so far 
raised £75,000 for War On 
Want and the CND.

Northern Ireland is the 
most law-abiding place in the 
United Kingdom, according 
to figures of notifiable of- 
fences recorded by the police. 

There is not as much violence 
against the person there as in 
some other places and much 
less criminal damage. 

That is how Northern Ire- 
land appears when the of- 
fences are given per 100,000

Docklands - 

Light rail link essential to 1 
finance centre development 


LONDON DOCKS 


Without an extension of the 
London docklands light railway 
to Canary Wharf ft would be 
impossible to go ahead with a 
proposed massive new finance 
centre covering 71 acres and 
including three office blocks One 
850 feet high. Lord Hacking 
(Ind) said in the House of Lords 
when successfully moving the 
second reading of the London 
Docklands Railway (City Exten- 
sion) Bill 

Without the railway link, be 
said, the complex could only 
become a satellite in danger of 
moving away to an orbit sepa- 
rate from the City of London.' 
The developers had said that 
without the rail link they would 
not go ahead with the finance 
centre. 

That was not to downgrade 
road plans and even a link via 
the Thames, but the rail link 
would provide a four-way inter- 
change at Bank station with the 


underground- There was no 
truth in the rumour that foe 
Northern Line was in danger of 
dosing. 

The new docklands fight rail- 
** completed by 
1 989. would greatly improve the 
public transport system, of foe- 
region. 

The Canary Wharf develop- 
ment would be the biggest 
private investment project in 
the workL covering a space of 
liAmiHipn square feet ofwbich 
8.8 million would be office 
accommodation and support 
services- • 

It would create 57.000 jobs 
when completed, of which 
21,000 would be available to 
people living locally. • 

■ The light railway, both the 
original line and foe proposed 
extension up to the Bank -of 
England, would cost a n es- 
timated £200. million, about half 
the cost of a conventional rail 
system. 

Lofd-Seftoa of Canton said that 
it seemed to him that what they ' 
were talking about was not -a 


regeneration ■ of London * 

Docklands.- but the creation of a 
new capital city/a third as bigas i*

Under foe tenant's right to buy 
legislation, sales to sitting ten-, 
ants were running at about

totalled nearly a million al- 
together. Lord Elton. Minister of 
State for Environment, said 
when moving second reading of 
foe Housing and Planning Bill 
in foe Lords. 

However, very few of foe 
buyers were people who lived in 
flats. They made up only 4 per 
cent of the total, and the scheme 


should be changed for their 
benefit. The Bill would increase 
the maximum discount avail- 
able to tenants of flats from 60 
per cent to 70 per cent after 15 
yews tenancy. It would also 
reduce the period during which 
foe purchaser of a dwelling 
under the scheme who sold it 
was liable to repay a proportion 
of foe discount on resale from 
five years to three. 

With its other provisions foe 
Bill would increase foe numbers

Pretoria counts on ineffective sanctions 


Geoffrey Smith 


Would It really matter if 
next week's meeting led to the 
break up of the Common- 
wealth? One of the am- 

sequences of the bitter dispute 

over South African sanctions , 
is tint, for the first time, a 
significant section Of opinion 
has developed in this country 
that would positively welcome 
such an outcome. The Com- : 
monwealth is seen as diverting 1 
British energies and distorting , 
British priorities. Is this the 
new realism? 

Thirty to 40 years ago it was 
fashionable to speak of 
Britain's International rela- 
tions in terms of the three 
interlocking circles of Western 
Europe, the United Sates and ! 
the Commonwealth. The an of 
foreign policy was to keep 
these circles in balance. 

When Britain first applied 
to join the European Economic 
Community in 1961, the 
Commonwealth circle was al- 
ready smaller than the other 
two. One mij&lit not have 
supposed so to judge from the 
rhetoric of the debate at that 
time. Much of the opposition 
was couched in terms of the 
incompatibility of Commmuty 
membership with Common- 
wealth obligations. 

But it has always seemed to 
me that the critical tension 
was between Britain's Atlantic 
and European connections. 
That was where de Gaulle put 
the emphasis in bis historic 
press conference rejecting 
Britain's case when he por- 
trayed this country as 
America's Trojan bone. 

Family analogy 
has weaknesses 

Since then the Common- 
wealth has slipped still further 
in Britain's order of priorities. 

It has suffered, in particular, 
from the analogy of a family 
which has encouraged false 
expectations and a mistaken 
understanding of its true 
nature. 

One can see the appeal of 
this comparison, with its over- 
tones of sentiment and its 
emphasis on the ties^ofhtood. 
Membership of the Common- 
wealth is based not upon any 
shared view of the world, but 
simply upon the common 
e xperience of haring once been 
ruled by Britain. If it dad not 
exist it would be impossible to 
invent it 

This experience has left 
behind both emotional bonds 
and psychological hang-ups 
which are central to the 
Commonwealth of today. But 
the family analogy out be 
misleading for two reasons, fn 
most families a mother’s love 
can be taken for granted. As 
the children grow up they 
usually know that their par- 
ents are even more anxious 
t han they are to maintain the 
contact. Often the parents 
develop a psychological

The other members have 
frequently behaved, especially 
over Rhodesia and South Af- 
rica, as if Britain's attachment 
to the Commonwealth could be 
taken for granted. They seem 
to imagine that they can hurt 
Britain most by threatening to 
leave the Commonwealth. 

But Britain has no such 
psychological dependence 
these days. By exaggerating 
British affection, by using the 
Commonwealth as an in- 
strument for pressurizing Brit- 
ain, they have in fact reduced 
British appreciation of the 

Commonwea lth.

From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

The shots fired by President 
Botha at the departing figure 
of Sir Geoffrey Howe on 
Tuesday — one of the most 
comprehensive put-downs in 
the history of diplomacy — 
ought finally to have con- 
vinced everyone of the futility 
of the kind of appeal to sweet 
reason attempted by the For- 
eign Secretary. 

Long before Sir Geoffrey 
arrived here. President Botha 
and his close colleagues had 
. decided that the threat of 
economic sanctions was likely 
jo he worse than the reality, 
and that the latter, in turn, 
would be much less bad than 
acceptance of the political 
demands made by the West. 

Mrs Thatcher must surely 
now accept that even Sir 
Geoffrey's legendary capacity 
to absorb punishment ought 
not to be subjected to the 
indignity of yet another tour 
of South Africa. Mocked by 
Pretoria and shunned by black 
radicals, his "peace mission** 
is as dead as a doornail. 

The daily Current Affairs 
commentary on South African 
radio, which dosely reflects 
government views, said yes- 
terday that the Howe mission 
was fatally undermined by the 
"patently false premise" that 
the African National Congress 
(ANC) was anxious to take 
part in peaceful negotiations, 
and bad up to now “rejected 
such an initiative because of 
the legal prohibition on itself 
as an organization" and the 
imprisonment erf* one of its 
leaders, Mr Nelson Mandela. 

Ramphal 
sees hope 
in summit 

By Rodney Cowtoo 

This weekend's Common- 
wealth mini-summit would 
show that the gap between 
Britain and other Common- 
wealth leaders over sanctions 
against South Africa was not 
too great and could be 
bridged. Mr Shridafh Ram- 
phal, Secretary-General of the 
Commonwealth, said yes- 
terday. 

He was speaking after a final 
meeting of the seven members 
of the Commonwealth Emi- 
nent Persons Group, which 
published its report last 
month on its efforts to stimu- 
late a dialogue leading to 
political change in South 
Africa. 

The members met to ex- 
change information on die 
talks many of them have had 
in other countries. 

Mr Malcolm Fraser, a for- 
mer prime minister of Austra- 
lia who was co-chairman of 
the group, said that Sir Geof- 
frey Howe's mission to South 
Africa had ended in a tremen- 
dous rebuff not so much for 
him personally but for die 
British Government. . 

No one could now say that 
words and diplomacy were 
going to be effective, ft had 
confirmed the view of the 

g oup that the South African 
overnment was not pre- 
pared to negotiate. 

Mr Fraser and bis co- 
chairman of the group, Gen- 
eral Olusegun Obasanjo, who 
is a former head of govern- 
ment in Nigeria, are to stay in 
London during the summit 
meeting, which starts on Sun- 
day, to be available for 
consultation. 

Mr Ramphal said that as 
soon as the leaders arrived the 
process of trying to find a 
consensus would begin. 

Mr Chester Crocker, the US 
assistant Secretary of State for 
African Affairs, arrived in 
London yesterday, and win 
today have meetings both 
with Sir Geoffrey and with 
officials at the Foreign Office. 

The Anti-Apailheid Move- 
ment in London yesterday 
dismissed as a complete cha- 
rade claims that Britain bad 
done more to fight apartheid 
than any other main Western 
industrialized country. 

US trade deal 
on textiles 
under attack 

From Christopher Thomas 
Washington 

The Reagan Administration 
came under fierce criticism on 
Capitol Hill yesterday after 
Congress was told that it had 
signed an agreement increas- 
ing textile imports from South 
Africa. 

The announcement came as 
the Senate foreign relations 
committee continued consid- 
eration of tough sanctions 
against Pretoria. The White 
House said the pact, signed at 
the end of last month, would 
allow a 4 per cent increase in 
textile imports. 

It argued that it would 
actually have the effect of 
limiting South Africa's share 
of the rising US market. "On 
balance, this agreement will 
help American producers," h 
said. 

Congressional moves were 
launched immediately to sc- 
rap the agreement Senator 
Richard Lugar, chairman of 
the foreign relations comm- 
ittee. said that the pact was 
hard to believe. U I am sur- 
prised that this kind of agree- 
ment should be worked out in 
ibis atmosphere," he said. 


African leaders meeting In 
Addis Ababa have condemned 
five Western slates — Britain, 
France. Israel, West Germany 
and the United States — for 
their dealings with Sooth Af- 
rica and have suggested vol- 
ant ary reprisals against 
Britain for Us opposition to 
sanctions (Renter reports from 
Addis Ababa). 

The Organization of African 
Unify (OAU) passed the rel- 
atively mild resolutions as 
expected after a militant cam- 
paign for tougher anti-West- 
ern measures appeared to lose 
momentum in the final hoars 
of its three-day summit. 

The ANC itself, the radio 
claimed, had "stated that 
unbanning the organization 
would make no difference 
either to its political demands 
or its stand on terrorist 
violence". It was dear it had 
"no interest in negotiations 
unless they deal solely with 
procedural mailers relating to 
acceptance of its political 
programme". 

Western politicians search- 
ing for solutions in South 
Africa had "not yet begun to 
try to remove the real obstacle 
in the way of democratic 
negotiations that would in- 
clude the ANC*. the radio 
said. "That obstacle is the 
refusal of the ANC to have any 
pan of such a negotiating 
process, and threats directed 
against South Africa can do 
nothing to change it". 

In his statement on Tuesday 
night. President Botha sent a 
quite unambiguous signal to 




Sir Geoffrey and Lady Howe returning from South Africa.at 
Heathrow yesterday while Sir Geoffrey's staff left, prepared

the outside world that Pretoria 
is prepared to face sanctions 
rather than shift from its 
position that it is the ANC 
which must make the first 
move by forswearing violence, 
and offering to enter into 
negotiation. 


Pretoria calculates that, 
while sanctions will be damag- 
ing, they will never be com- 
prehensive and will never be 
effectively policed, and in 
, some cases (such as the threat- 
ened ban on new investments) 
.will merely endorse measures 


already imposed by the inter- 
national financial community. 

Both the commercial rand 
and the financial rand, the 
latter being the special lower 
rale used for all capital flows 
under South Africa’s two-tier 
exchange control system, fell 
by about a cent against the US 
dollar yesterday and then 
recovered somewhat with sup- 
port from the Reserve Bank. 
Dealers said the fail reflected 
nervousness here about the 
threat of further sanctions. 

One of the most interesting 
reactions to the failure of the 
Howe mission came in 
yesterday's Business Day. a 
newspaper which is usually a 


intransigence in the past. 

Yesterday, however, the pa- 
per aimed its barbs not at Mr 
Botha, but at the "hysterical 
demand for change in South 
Africa, no matter what the 
cost or the outcome", which, it 
said was analagous to (hat 
which trad swept the West in 
the last days of the Shah of 
Iran and' the American 
occupation of Vietnam. 

There was now little hope 
thtu anything the South Af- 
rican Government could do 
would avert sanctions, it as- 
serted. Even if Mr Mandela 
was released, and the ANC 
unbanned sanctions would 
only be put off for a few 


fairly accurate barom«er of months, "then the goal posts 
opinion in the business would be moved again, and a 


community, and which has 
been veiy critical of Pretoria’s 


fresh set of demands would be 
put forward".

Briefings 
for EEC 
leaders 
on mission 

From Richard Owen 
Brussels 

EEC governments are to 
bold consultations wirb Mrs 
Margaret Thatcher and Sir 
Geoffrey Howe through dip- 
lomatic channels today and 
tomorrow to gain a first-hand 
report on Sir Geoffrey's mis- 
sion to South Africa and to 
consider whether it is worth 
con tinning. 

But no EEC meeting is 
scheduled, and the EEC is 
likely to wait until after the 
Commonwealth mini-summit 
before reacting officially. 

Tbe EEC meeting in The 
Hague a month ago sent Sir 
Geoffrey to southern Africa in 
his capacity as president of 
the EEC Council of Ministers. 

Diplomats point ont that tbe 
summit gave him three months 
in which to establish con- 
ditions for a dialogue between 
black and white in South 
Africa and to seek the release 
iff political prisoners and the 
reform of apartheid. 

The view that an EEC 
meeting to assess bis mission 
is unlikely until September is 
underlined by the 
practicalities of the European 
summer break, which begins 
tomorrow'. 

Nearly all EEC officials and 
government ministers take 
Uieir holiday in August, and 
tbe EEC headquarters in 
Brussels is redoced to a skel- 
eton staff.

Reagan conciliatory as 
: preliminary meeting 
arranged with Moscow 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 


•The stage looks set at last for 
a Superpower summit-meeting 
this year after a tentative 
agreement for talks in Wash- 
ington on September 19-20 
between Mr Georpe Shultz, 
the- US Secretary of State, and 
Mr Eduard Shevardnadze, the 
Soviet Foreign Minister. 

The encounter is designed 
to fix a firm date for the 
summit in the United States. 

.To smooth the way Mr 
Reagan is being extremely 
conciliatory in public about 
Moscow and its leaders, call- 
ing Mr Gorbachov “a modem 
man". He said that a letter on 
anms control sent to the Soviet 
leader last Friday “underlines 
my determination to keep the 
momentum going". 


The private letter was in 
response to Mr Gorbachov's 
message of June 23 proposing 
significant reductions in Mos- 
cow's offensive weapons if the 
US curbed its Strategic De- 
fence Initiative programme. 

Mr Reagan said that "for 
the first time we are not only 
pointed in the right direction 
towards reductions and elim- 
inations of nuclear weapons*, 
we have begun to move down 
that road". 

His repeated claims that his 
Star Wars initiative could lead 
to the elimination of nuclear 
weapons is not shared by most 
senior officials of the pro- 
gramme. who say that at best 
it could be expected to 


Salt talks reach an abrupt end 


’Geneva — The US-Soviet 
talks on the 1979 Sait 2 
Treaty wound up abruptly 
yesterday with a cryptic US 
communique saying that the. 
Russians had rejected Wash- 
ington's initiative (Alan Mc- 
Gregor writes). 

The communique said that 
the Russians had rejected 
President Reagan's call to join 


in establishing “an interim 
framework of truly mutual 
restraint pending conclusion of 
a verifiable agreement on deep 
and equitable reductions.** 

The Soviet version of the 
♦flitg was that America's 
attention had been drawn to 
the extremely dangerous con- 
sequences of the US ceasing to 
observe the Salt provisions. 


“devalue” Soviet nuclear mis- 
siles by providing a defensive 
shield against them in space. 

A fully effective shield is not 
regarded as technically fea- 
sible. Dr Allen Mense, deputy 
chief scientist of the project, 
has said that the objective 
would be to “minimise the 
maximum risk” of enemy 
missiles hitting the US. 

Mr Gorbachov is believed 
to have proposed in his letter 
to Mr Reagan that there 
should be an extension- of the 
Anti-Ballistic Missile treaty 
for 15 to 20 years, which 
would prohibit deployment of 
a space-based system. 

Mr Reagan has suggested a 
delay of five to seven years for 
deployment in space. Since 
the US is unlikely to be ready 
to deploy weapons for at least 
10 years, the sides seem 
extremely close on this issue. 

But Mr Reagan insisted: 
“Wc will not bargain away 
SDI, because it is a promising 
area of technology that could 
release the world from the 
threat of ballistic missiles. We 
must continue our SDI pro- 
gramme on schedule." 


Gorbachov defends arms spending 


Mr Mikhail Gorbachov, the 
Soviet leader, yesterday de- 
fended the Kremlin's arms 
spending in a talk with res- 
idents of the Far Eastern city 
of Khabarovsk. Moscow radio 
said (Reiner reports). 

;“!t is difficult to handle the 
imperialists. If we had been 
wfeak. nobody would have 
talked with us,” the radio, 
nxonitored by the BBC in 
London, quoted him as say- 


ing. “And however much it 
costs our people to spend on 
defence, never, in any place 1 
have been in the Soviet 
Union, have 1 heard anyone 
saying. 'Mikhail Sergeyevich, 
Id's abandon defence and 
move everything to consumer 
goods',” he added. 

Mr Gorbachov met chiefs of 
the Soviet Far Eastern mili- 
tary region during his visit. 


according to Tass. Mr 
Gorbachov has also visited 
the port of Vladivostok, home 
of the Soviet Pacific fleet, and 
the submarine-building centre 
■of Komsomolsk-na-Amure 
during a trip through the 
Soviet Far East that began on 
Friday. 

Tass said that he visited a 
state farm, an economic ex 
hibition and a sports stadium

China hits 
at Afghan 
troops plan 

From Robert Grieves 
Peking 

China yesterday all but 
dismissed the decision of Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov to with- 
draw six regiments of Soviet 
troops from Afghanistan. 

The Soviet invasion of 
Afghanistan, as well as 
Moscow's support for the 
Vietnamese regime in Cam- 
bodia and the presence of 
some 50 Soviet divisions on 
the Chinese border, have 
repeatedly been cited by Pe- 
king as three obstacles that bar 
the normalization of relations 
between the two countries. 

“The political settlement of 
Afghanistan lies in the com- 
plete withdrawal of Soviet 
troops.” a Chinese Foreign 
Ministry spokesman said at 
the ministry's weekly news 


EEC atom ‘silence’ attacked 


The nuclear industry was 
no! being open enough about 
the risk of accidents, Mr 
Stanley Clinton Davis, the 
EEC Commissioner for the 
Environment and Nuclear 
Safety, said yesterday. 

The commission had begun 
legal proceedings against eight 
member states, he said, for 
having failed to incorporate 
EEC directives on basic safety- 
standards into tbeir national 
legislation. 

But Mr Clinton Davis, 
Britain's junior commissioner 
in Brussels, said that there 
was no agreement so far 
among the Twelve on the need 
for an independent inspection 
force with wide powers to 
monitor the operation of 
nuclear plants in the EEC 
after the Chernobyl accident. 

The idea of an inspectorate 
had aroused “acute political 
difficulties", be said, but it had 
to be considered urgently. 

TI.U four rrr rminn-ies 


From Richard Owen. Brussels 
which have complied with 
EEC nodear safety standards, 
as updated ami revised two 
years ago, are Britain, France. 
Denmark and Greece. 

prim in and France are im- 
portant users of nuclear power, 
relying on nuclear energy for 
20 per cent arid 65 per cent of 

electricity needs respectively. 

Denmark and Greece, like 
Portugal, Ireland and Luxem- 
bourg. have no unclear plants. 
But EEC standards apply to 
the measuring of radiation for 
medical purposes and in the 
air, and apply to all member 
states. 

Of tbe states being taken to 
the European Court of Justice. 
Belgium. Spain, Holland, 
West Germany and Italy all 
have nuclear power plants. 

Mr Clinton Davis said that 
the Commission's investiga- 
tions into nuclear standards, 
which have now reached the 
end of their first phase, had 
bcoun well before Chernobyl 


and did not amount to “a 
hastily conceived public rela- 
tions exercise”. 

Public anxiety had to be 
allayed, and the public in 
Europe did not want to be 
patronized. “The law of si- 
lence has got to end." ho said. 

Mr Clinton Davis said that 
decision-making on nuclear 
matters was too cumbersome, 
that basic safety standards 
enshrined in the Euratom 
Treaty of 1959 had not kept 
pace with technology-, and that 
the trans-frontier impact of 
nuclear leaks was under- 
estimated. 

“This cannot go on," he 
said. “Chernobyl shows that 
in effect the whole population 
of the EEC lives in the vicinity 
of a nuclear installation.” 

He proposed to set up a 
standing conference on nuc- 
lear matters next year to 
enable people to gain an 
understanding of complex 
nuclear issues. 


Sudanese 
famine a 
weapon for 
both sides 

From Charles Harrison 
Nairobi 

Hunger is being used as a 
weapon both by the Sudanese 
Government and the forces 
opposing it in the country s 
guerrilla war, a southern Suda- 
nese representative said here 
vesterday. 

‘ Mr DhoIAciulAIeu. general 
secretary of the Sudan Relief 
and Rehabilitation Agency 
(SRRA). which is linked 
closely to the Sudan People's 
Liberation Army (SPLA). the 
main guerrilla group, called 
for a large-scale airlift of relief 
food to counter the present 
widespread famine. 

He insisted, however, that 
the relief food must be distrib- 
uted by his agency after clear- 
ance by the SPLA The Sudan 
Army must not use any cease- 
fire to reinforce its positions in 
the south, he said. 

Mr Aleu said that the SPLA 
was prepared to allow food 
deliveries if its conditions 
were met. 

Relief agencies say that 
millions of people in the 
southern Sudan are starv ing 
because of the continuing civil 
war. Malnutrition, especially 
among children, is worse than 
it was in Ethiopia at the height 
of the 1984 famine. 

Mr Aleu said: “The Sudan 
Army has prevented the rural 
population from obtaining 
food from the garrison towns 
because they fear that the 
guerrillas will benefit. 

“As a response, the SPLA 
has blocked all roads and 
rivers, so that no food or 
reinforcements can reach the 
towns” 

The famine, he said, would 
remain acute for another two 
months — when some crops 
are due to be harvested — and 
that there would be a lot of 
starvation. “In our opinion 
the situation can only be met 
by a massive airlift of food 
from Kenya. Uganda and 
Ethiopia."

Argentina and Brazil 
sign accords for a 
‘mini conunon market’ 


From A Correspondent, Buenos Aires 


Argentina and Brazil have 
rmalized their intention to 
u*ow together” by signing 
■cords for economic integra- 
w and co-operation. 
President Alfonsin of Ale- 
nina and President Samey of 
razil were joined on T uesday 
•cning by President Sanguin- 
'd of Uruguay for the cerc- 
ony. Uruguay's entry into 
hat’ enthusiastic supporters 
e calling a “mini common 
arkei” is being studied and 
i participation is expected to 
■ arranged within 90 days. 
The accords, which will go 
to effect on January i, 1987, 
e being seen as the opening 
t in a long process of 
creased economic lies that 
ighL if successful, include all 
' Latin America in a true 
•■mmon market 
The accords are the initia- 
ls of the new democracies, 
lilt on notions of mutual 
sistancc rather than the 
opolitical rivalry integral to 
c thinking of previous mili- 
ry governments. 

Shared problems also have 
t the stage for the accords, 
■azil and Argentina are the 
cond and third nations ranfc- 
a as debtors, and both are 


fearful of increasing protec- 
tionist trade moves in the 
industrialized countries. 

Speaking to the Argentine 
Congress before the signing. 
President Samey said; “We 
have come to the conclusion 
that, isolated, our countries 
can do little or nothing to 
change the world order.” 

The most detailed protocols 
have to do with initial steps 
toward integration in the cap- 
ital goods sector, an agree- 
ment by Brazil to increase 
grain purchases over the next 
four years, and the establish- 
ment of mechanisms for creat- 
ing stocks of foodstuffs as a 
means of helping to control 
suppiv and pricing in the two 
countries which have long 
histories of inflation. 

Growing caution on the part 
of the Argentine private sector 
delaved the elaboration of the 
list of capital goods products 
to be treated equally in both 
countries. The list is expected 
to be ready by the end of the 
year as assurances from eco- 
nomic authorities have calm- 
ed Argentine businessmen’s 
fears of being overcome by 
their more dynamic Brazilian 
counterparts. 


The protocols also included 
an agreement to set up means 
for immediate communica- 
tion and assistance in the 
event of a nuclear accident. 

Other clauses provide mec- 
hanisms to balance trade 
when disequilibriums occur, 
to establish co-operation in 
biotechnology, to study poli- 
cies for import duties for third 
countries, to set up commis- 
sions to study the exchange of 
technology, increasing trade 
and other potential areas of 

co-operation. 

Businessmen are not the 
only group in Argentina to 
express concern over the 
agreements. The General Con- 
federation of Labour in a 
statement criticized the trade 
accords for lacking a “social 
sense and a defence of 
labour”. 

The differential in wage 
scales between Argentina and 
Brazil, where pay is reported 
to be 20 to 30 per cent lower, 
has worried unions in Argen- 
tina which fear an effort to 
depress their earnings. 

Some Brazilian business- 
men also fear that workers 
there will uy to catch up with 
their southern neighbours.

Brussels (Retiter) - The 
Belgian Government is to be 
asked to change its rules on 
sick leave for civil servants, 
bui even if the reforms go 
through some officials wifi 
still have the right to a year off 
at full pay. 

M Charles Ferdinand Not- 
homb. Minister in charge of 
the civil service, believes that 
some workers are abusing the 
system that gives them the 
right to 30 days a year off sick 
without loss of pay. and 
credits them with any “sick 


days” not taken. M Nothomb 
said that at the age of 50, some 
public servants had accu- 
mulated “illness capital” of 
630 days. “The 30-day-a-year 
allowance has come to be 
considered a right. We must 
remedy it,” he said. 

Under bis proposals, which 
go to Cabinet this week, 
accumulation of sick leave 
would be limited to 280 days 
for 40-year-olds and 327 days 
for 5 O^y ear-olds. A current

Bush hopeful 
for early end 
to Egypt-Israel 
border dispute 

From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 



Freed hostage takes message to Pope 


With messages to King 
Husain of Jordan and Presi- 
dent Mubarak of Egypt in his 
pocket, Mr George Bush, the 
US Vice-President, left here 
yesterday evening for Amman 
on the second stage of his 
Middle Eastern tour. 

He would give no details of 
what the messages were, be- 
yond saying that they con- 
tained plenty to talk about 
although no new proposals. 

He stressed the importance 
the US now placed on reach- 
ing an agreement between 
Israel and Egypt on their 
outstanding border dispute. 

“It's getung close to getting 
resolved," he said. “If my visit 
can be a catalyst for the 
signing of that agreement so 
much the better. But the main 
thing is that it gets done." 

Negotiators from the two 
countries, helped by American 
experts, continue work on the 
dispute today and tomorrow. 

According to Israeli sources 
there is a good possibility of an 
agreement being ready for 
initialling in Cairo early next 
week. This would need to be 
approved by both govern- 
ments before it could be 
formally signed. 

Mr Bush was undismayed 


by the fact that King Husain 
had immediately rejected his 
suggestion this week that the 
next logical step in the Middle 
East peace process was a 
meeting between him and the 
Israeli Prime Minister. 

The King said that direct 
negotiations could be held 
only within an international 
peace conference including 
the five permanent UN Se- 
curity Council members and 
those countries directly in- 
volved. This is also the po- 
sition of King Hassan of 
Morocco, whom Mr Shimon 
Peres, the Israeli Prime Min- 
ister. visited last week. 

Mr Bush said that the US 
would not support an inter- 
national peace conference be- 
cause this would risk turning 
into a U N debate which would 
achieve nothing. 

He also refused to consider 
any acknowledgemenet of 
Palestinian "self-determin- 
ation” outside the terms of 
existing UN resolutions. 

One important bilateral 
agreement was reached. This 
was to set up a joint study 
which could lead to Israel’s 
being granted special status 
comparable to Nato countries 
as a defence partner of the US. 


Rome (AP. Reuter) - The 
Rev Lawrence Jenco delivered 
a message to the Pope yes- 
terday from the Muslim zeal- 
ots who held him captive for 
nearly 19 months, and said 
that "the religious factor" was 
important in securiog the re- 
lease of other hostages in 
Lebanon. 

"To keep my promise (to his 
former captors) I have given a 
confidential message from my 
captors to the Holy Father," 
the American priest said after 
meeting (he Pope. 


Father Jenco. aged 51. said 
he would deliver the same 
message to the Archbishop of 
Canterbury* Dr Robert Run- 
cie. today. He also had a 
message for President Reagan. 

“The religious factor is of 
great importance in this 
matter." Looking tired after 
bis ordeal at the hands of the 
Islamic Jihad, he said he could 
not reveal what his captors 
wanted to communicate to the 
Pope. 

A Vatican spokesman said 
that Father Jenco, who was 


ordained in Rome in 1959, was 
accompanied to the "private" 
audience by Mr Terry Waite, 
Dr Runcie's special envoy, and 
12 relatives. 

He urged reporters to pray 
for the release of the Ameri- 
cans still held captive. He had 
shared a cell for a year with 
four hostages — Terry Ander- 
son. an Associated Press 
journalist; Mr David Jacob- 
sen, director of the American 
Hospital in Beirut; Mr Thom- 
as Sutherland, an agricultural 
expert at the American Uni- 


versity: and the Rev Thomas 
W eir, a Presbyterian minister. 

• WASHINGTON: Mr 
Reagan will meet Father 
Jenco in the Oval Office 
tomorrow, the White House 
announced (l PI repons). 

• BOSTON: Mrs Peggy Say. 
sister of Mr Anderson, said 
she is more afraid for his life 
after talking to Father Jenco. 
The captives, he told her, “are 
given the basic necessities of 
life and those are basic" (AP 
reports). 


Austrian in 
challenge 
to German 
atom plant 

From Richard Bassett 
Vienna 

An Austrian farmer Jiving 
close to the controversial West 
German nuclear power station 
21 Wackersdorf is to cake the 
German nuclear power in- 
dustry to coun in an attempt 
to stop the station being 
brought into use. 

He is supported by an 
en\ ironmemal movement cal- 
ling itself “Austrians Against 
Wackersdorf" which hopes 
that the Austrian court will 
rule against the West German 
project on the grounds that 
Austrians living near the 
Bavarian frontier, a few miles 
from Wackersdorf. were not 
consulted in accordance with 
West German law. 

Although the action is being 
brought in Austria. Herr 
Heinrich Wille. legal spokes- 
man for the movement yes- 
terday said that he believed 
there was a good chance that n 
would be successful and. as a 
result, legally binding in West 
Germany. Under a 1949 
agreement between Bonn and 
Vienna, the results of civil 
actions in Austria can be 
enforced in West Germany. 

The Wackersdorf project 
has soured relations between 
Bonn and Vienna, and dip- 
lomats here doubt whether the 
case will be successful in West 
Germany even if it is ap- 
proved by the Austrian courts 
later this week. 


£ 950,000 
reward for 
capture of 
terrorists 

From Frank Johnson 
Bonn 

The highest reward in West 
German history — three mil- 
lion marks (about £950.090) — 
was announced yesterday for 
what police described as "the 
decisive tip" leading to the 
arrest and conviction of the 
terrorists who murdered the 
Director of the Siemens com- 
pany, Herr Karl-Heinz Beck- 
urts. and his driver. Hen 
Eckerhard Groppler. in a Mu-

US accused of bullying 
Iceland over whaling 


Reykjavik (Reuter) — A 
dispute over whaling has 
strained the cordial relations 
between Iceland and the 
United States, with Reykjavik 
accusing Washington of bully- 
ing tactics. 

The Icelandic Prime Min- 
ister. Mr Steingrimur Herm- 
ansson, accused the US on 
Tuesday of having used 
“intolerable methods of 
coercion" to force the nation 
to abandon a hunt for whales 
for scientific purposes. 

He produced official docu- 
ments which he said proved 
that Washington was threaten- 
ing to boycott Iceland's fish 
products unless a hunt for this 


year's scientific quota of 80 fin 
whales and 40 sei whales was 
halted. He said the US threat 
had forced him on Monday to 
cal! a hah several weeks early 
to this season's hunk 

The Untied States, which 
has denied the Icelandic boy- 
cott claims repeatedly, lakes 
30 per cent of Iceland's fish 
sales. In Washington, officials 
denied that sanctions had 
been threatened. 

The US Ambassador to 
Iceland, Mr Nicholas Ruwe. 
was summoned for talks with 
Mr Hermansson on Tuesday, 
but the Prime Minister 
stopped short of a formal 
protest- 


Law Report July 3 1 1 986 


Cheque holder for 
value under Act 


TacKenzie Mills v Buono 
efore Lord Justice May and 
ord Justice Stocker 
lodgment delivered July 10] 
The fact that the holder of a 
ieque had received it as 
idorsee from the payee in 
aymeni of an antecedent debt 
-nailer than the amount of the 
ieque did not prevent him 
om being the holder for value 
i due course of the whole 
ieque for the purposes of 
xtion 29(1) of the Bills of 
Kchange Act 1882, 

The Court of Appeal so held, 
rsmissing an appeal by the 
sfendanu Mr Franco Buono, 
om an order of Sir Ned 
awson who, sitting as a High 
ourl judge on October 10. 
)85. had dismissed his appeal 
om an order of Master Lub- 
>ck who had given summary 
idgment for the plaintiff solic- 
ors. Mackenzie Mills, in an 
:tion on a cheque for £3.7 14 
rawn by the defendant and 
idorsed to the plaintiff by the 
wee. 

Section 27 of the Bills of 
icchange Act. 1882 provides: 
1) Valuable consideration lor 
bill may be constituted by - 
) anv consideration sufficient 
i support a simple contract; (b) 
iy antecedent debt or liability.

ider the following conduioi as, 
(b) that he took the bium 

faith and for value.... - 

Mr Matthew Caswell for the 
rfcndant: Mr Antonio Bueno 
r the plaintiff. 


LORD JUSTICE MAY said 
that die payee had owed the 
plaintiff about £500 in respect of 
continuing costs in litigation 
between it and the defendant 
when it had indorsed the cheque 
to it. and it had been clear that 
further, as then unascertained, 
liability to the plaintiff for such 
costs would be incurred by the 
payee. 

The cheque had been nego- 
tiated to the plaintiff and there- 
fore section 27(3) of the 1882 
Act did not apply so as to render 
the plaintiff holder for value 
only in respect of the £500 odd 
which the payee had owed to it. 

The defendant had argued 
that since he had drawn the 
cheque in favour of the payee in 
anticipated payment for goods 
which had never been delivered, 
the payee had not given value 
for the cheque and that therefore 
the plaintiff could not claim to 
be deemed by section 27(2) to be 
a holder for value. 

Although in proceedings on 
the cheque between die payee 
and the defendant, the defen- 
dant might be able to say that 
consideration had wholly failed, 
at the time when the cheque had 
been drawn valuable consid- 
eration had been given for it, 
since it had been given in pan 
payment in anticipation of the 
receipt of goods. It followed that 
the plaintiff was deemed by 
section 27(2) to be a holder of 
the cheque for value. 

If that were wrong, the plain- 
tiff had in any event taken the 
cheque for value from the payee, 
that is. as payment of the 
existing debt and in anticipation 
of future debts. The defendant 
conceded that the other con- 
ditions in section 29(1) were 
fulfilled, and therefore the plain- 
tiff was the holder for value in 
due course of the cheque under 
that section. 

Lord Justice Stocker agreed.

THE NATIONAL GALLERY 


I t was its handling of the 
competition for the design 
of its new extension that 
first won the National Gal- 
lery a reputation for getting 
nto well-meaning public mud- 
Ues. It has now followed that by 


our own venerable institution? 
Answering that question involves 
looking at exactly what the Na 
tional Gallery is there for. 

The traditional view is that it 
should be simply a place where 




naking what one gallery owner

ucceed Sir Michael Levey, who is

Having alarmed the London art 
wild and bruised the egos of the 
irilish candidates by encouraging 
n American to apply, and choos- 
ng him for the job, the National 
uffered the indignity of being told 
■y their prized import that he 
idn’t want the £37.000 a year 
ost [which, being a Civil Service 
ppointment, comes with in- 
remental holidays and pension 
ights). 

Edmund “Ted" Pillsbury was 
pparently “sickened by the anti- 
Americanism" which his appoint- 
lent had aroused. The selection

preserved, a resort of quiet, spir- 
itual recreation; a place, as Aldous 
Huxley put it, to view “Old 
Masters and Young Mistresses". 

Another view is that it should 
play a louder and more active 
part, with special educational 
exhibitions, video aids, lectures 
and entertaining jamborees aimed 
at bringing in the public and 
bringing art to the people. At this, 
members of the London art 
establishment have been seen to 
raise their eyes in horror. “That 
sort of thing is all veTy well for 
America", one said, “where 90 per 
cent of the museums and art

directors are finally judged - by-

also an expert .at that.' “It’s a

Top job going begging: but some say that Jacob Rothschild, chairman of the National’s trustees, will see the new director as his own assistant 


also very much alive in Britain, 
particularly in the provinces. Ju- 
lian Spalding the 38-year-old 
director of Manchester Art Gal- 
lery and believed to have been a 
candidate for the National job, is 
one of the leaders of this 
“populist" school In Manchester 
he is even running an art lending 
library for local people. 


Under Sir Michael Levey, the 
National Gallery has also in recent 
years made a few gestures towards 


“populism". He appointed a Cu- 
rator of Education, Alistair Smith, 
a man in his early forties who rides 
in every day from Walthamstow 
on his motor bike. Rumour has it 
that one of the daily events at the 
National Gallery is the sight of 
Smith divesting himself of his 
leathers in the office and emerg- 
ing like a mayfly from its nymph, 
in the sober good taste of an art 
administrator. 

Among the changes fostered by 
his department was the appoint- 


ment of regular “artists in 
residence", the National being 
among the first galleries to do this. 
There have also been regular 
“Artist's Eye" exhibitions, in 
which well known contemporary 
painters like David Hockney, 
Howard Hodgkin, and Francis 
Bacon have been lured into the 
gallery to select their favourite 
pictures from the collection, 
providing an explanation for their 
choices and addinga few examples 
of their own wor£ There are also 


occasional educative exhibitions, 
taking one aspect of a painter or 
school and illustrating it with 
work from the collection. 

This teaching role is. In fact 
rooted in the founding of the . 
gallery; when Sir George Beau- 
mont, an English private collector, 
offered his Old Masters to the 
nation in . 1823 if a suitable 
building could be found to house 
them. He believed that “by easy 
access to such works of art the 
public taste might improve". 


The gallery is on the edge of a 
busy and fascinating period:: 
Thanks to the generosity of the 
Sainsbory family, the' new exten- 
sion can now go ahead. There is no 
longer any need for it .lo .be 
combined with an office develop-. .

The graceful outline of an 
ancient Greek trireme has 
begun to take shape behind a 
makeshift shed of corrugated 
iron sheets in a yard near 
Piraeus. Greek shipwrights, 
working out of elaborate Brit- 
ish designs, are moulding a 
copy of the 120-foot fighting 
ship which gave Athens its 
naval supremacy in classical 
times. 

Dimitri Tzikakos’s shipyard 
in Perama is barely a stone’s 
throw from the Straits ofSala- 
mis where the Greeks, using 
triremes, defeated the superior 
Persian fleet in 480 BC 

The building of the trireme, 
which began in July last year, 
is an Anglo-Greek venture. 
The Greek Navy is spending 
about £400,000 to foot the bill, 
while Britain’s “Trireme 
Trust" has contributed blue- 
prints and specifications. 
These were prepared by John 
Coates, one-time chief naval 
architect in the Ministry of 
Defence, based on research by 
Professor John Morrison, a 
past president of Wolfson 
College, Cambridge. 

Commander Stavros Platis, 
one of the two American- 
trained naval architects of the 
Greek Navy assigned to the 
project, hopes that the trireme 
will be ready for launching in 
September. Little was known 
about the construction, largely 
because no complete trireme 
has ever been found. The only 
part of a contemporary war- 
ship retrieved is a bronze ram 
found in Athlit, near Haifa. 

Historians say that the 
sleek, shallow warships were 
fast and highly manoeuvrable. 
They bad a mast, a square 
main sail and a smaller sail 
fore. But according to 
Xenophon's descriptions, 
both were left behind when 
the triremes went into battle, 
where they would ram and 
sink the enemy ships under 
the power of 170 professional 
oarsmen. 

Arguments about the 
trireme’s speed, the length of 
oars and the deployment of 
oarsmen stimulated a long 
and heated debate in the 


: J /. j:. "'-y ; 

> •• • -■ 



Fighting ship: a model of the trireme being bttiit near the site of the 480 BC Battle of Safaunis 


letters columns of The Times 
in 1975. That led to the idea of 
building a working copy, and 
the present experiment is 
likely to provide the answers. 

At Perama, the builders 
have joined together the 
planks and the keel by small 
wooden slats sunk into chis- 
elled cuttings and pinned with 
wooden pegs. The planks are 
Oregon pine, the keel, of 
African iroko wood which 
resists erosion, and the pegs, 
25.000 of them, are of oak. • 

The dimensions were estab- 
lished by measurements made 
at the end of the last century in 
the excavated shipyards- of 
Piraeus. The Perama trireme 
is 120ft lOin long and I7ft 
Uin wide with a 6ft Sin. 
freeboard. The 200 oars, or- 
dered in Oregon, are 13ft 9in 
with the shorter ones 13ft 2ra 
long. Fully loaded with 170 
oarsmen, 30 crew and gear, it 
should weigh 48 tonnes. 

The trireme's record for 
long-distance travel was nar- 
rated by TTuicydides in book 
three of his history -Of the 
Peloponnesian War. The 
Athenians, having tad second 
thoughts on a decision to kill 
all the inhabitants of Mytilene 
on the island of Lesbos after a 
revolt, dispatched a trireme to 
catch up with the ship sent 24 
hours earlier with the execu- 
tion order. 

Its oarsmen were fed with 
cakes of barley mixed, with 
olive oil and wine while they 
rowed, and took turns to sleep- 
The trireme reached the is- 
land. 190 miles away, just in 
time to avert a massacre. 
Coates calculates that the 


trireme covered the distance 
at an average speed of 7-5 
knots an hour. “We might test 
if a modern -crew can match - 
this record". Morrison said. . 

How fast could a trireme 
go? A one-tenth model was 
tested in a water tank at the 
Technical University of Ath- 
ens and the findings fed into a 
computer. “It came up with a . 
staggering ramming speed of 
10 knots an- hour". Platis said. 

Morrison and Coates hope 
.to be closely associated with ; 


the sea trials of tHe trireme in 
the Aegean. -“We. want; to* 
obtain as much information as 
-possible on its performanc e, in ' 
battle and its ability io.go on 
longer, voyages’ 4 ., Morrison 
said:.---: -V? 

“In :..the battle 

the Persian ships wereliigher 
in the water and therefore 
difficult to manoeuvre in a. 
'rind. _The triremes* went at 1 
them like modem guided mi*i 
siles and won." •

Empty life of 
inhuman icon 



A t the height of his terror, 
Joseph Stalin arrangxl for 
soldiers to guard his moth- 
er. but the poor woman 
fainted at the sight of them, fearing 
that she, too, was about to be 
arrested on the orders of her son. 
Apocryphal, perhaps: but it is 
certainly true that Stalin impris- 
oned other members of his family. 
Still, they were the lucky ones. Most 
of his victims were executed; or 
were worked to death, or tortured, 
or left to starve. There is nothing 
more chilling than the image of 
Stalin checking each morning the 
lists of those about to die. 

So what do we have here? An 
“evil genius'* or a “great man**, both 
of which epithets have been em- 
ployed on innumerable occasions? 
Was be the indispensable creator of 
the modem Soviet state, or a 
■dictator who took advantage of 
Marxism to bunch his own private 
brand of tenor? Alex deJonge's new 
biography suggests all of these 
possibilities, without coming to any 
definitive or definite conclusion. 

But perhaps no conclusion is 
possible: certainly this must have 
been a most difficult book to write, 
and not just because there have 
been other biographers before him. 
who have covered the ground so 
thoroughly that theirs is the literary 
equivalent of a scorched earth 
policy. The point is that, even if it is 
true that the devil gets the best lines, 
it is by no means certain that he has 
the most interesting life; and, if you 
were to pick out one salient quality 
of Stalin from this book, it is fats 
coldness or remoteness. He was an 
“invisible man", as de Jonge puts it, 
but not just in a sense that he 
maintained an almost pharaonic 
aloofness; pan of him seems simply 
not to have been there at all. Evil is 
best diagnosed as absence or with- 
drawal; and there is in Stalin a

SHAPING OF THE 
SOVIET UNION 
By Alex de Jonge

curious emptiness, allied with an 
odd theatricality (this is characteris- 
tic of many “great" men). 

At least a psychological portrait 
would be possible, therefore, and dc 
Jonge's account of Stalin’s child- 
hood provides most of the necessary 
dues — diminutive stature; a de- 
formed foot; ugly: pock-marked; 
beaten by his drunken father, 
perhaps even illegitimate. Just as 
there is a theory that Hitler's 
political strategy was based upon an 
obsessive need to defend himself 
against the threat of extinction, so it 
might plausibly be claimed that 
Stalin's relentless pursuit of power 
was one way of ensuring that he 
would never be beaten or humiliat- 
ed again. In the childhood of Stalin, 
modem Russia was formed. 

But these are difficult areas; and, 
perhaps wisely, de Jonge has es- 
chewed them. What he has done 
here instead, is to place Stalin 
squarely in his cultural and political 
context If the greatest single omis- 
sion in this book is that de Jonge at 
no point gives any sign that he has 
tried to fed what it was like to be 
Stalin, its most important single 
virtue lies in hs presentation of ibe 
man as a fitting representative of 
Russian history and Russian cul- 
ture. De Jonge charts Stalin's rise 


from revolutionary and quondam 
criminal to Lenin's bureaucrat and 
then Lenin's successor but he never 
forgets that Stalin's role was to 
create a society realizing “the social 
and political lines of force that had 
been present in Russia for 
centuries." Sialin had an acute 
historical sense, and seems con- 
sciously to have placed himself in 
the tradition of Ivan the Terrible 
and Peter the Great. Bui he also 
understood the Russian people: if 


he was a tyrant, he was a popular 
one. and de Jonge sees Stalin's rule 
as “the logical culmination of the 
Russian political tradition.'* 
Whether it is the logical conclu- 
sion of Marxism is another matter, I 
suspect it is. and this paradoxically 
because Stalin's genius was for 
organization rather than for ideolo- 
gy. Or. rather, he identified Marxist 
ideology with the use of power, and 
so arranged for its first practical 
application. But his rule represented 


the apotheosis of Marxism in 
another sense also - he was able to 
destroy an entire generation who 
had known anything of pre-Stolinist 
Russia: but these millions went to 
their death behind the banner of a 
rigid Marxism that decreed that 
whatever Sialin did was. of necessi- 
ty. right. 

I n fact de Jonge is sometimes 
more interesting on the country 
than on its ruler. He explains, 
cogently, that, “The Soviet 
style of government is to be 
explained by the ambitions of a 
superpower obliged to rely on a 
people without a work ethic"; and 
he is very good at defining those 
qualities in the nation that Stalin 
was able to exploit: in particular 
“the timeless Russian sense of 
cultural inferiority and spiritual 
superiority", the nationalism, the 
anti-Semitism, and the innate in- 
stinct for gossip and denunciation. 
But there is another side to this: if 
there is one thing more odious than 
Russian Schadenfreude, it is the 
credulity of various Western ob- 
servers who (both then and now) 
bow down before the image of 
“Mother Russia" and her heroic 
people. 

So this book has solid virtues, 
but. in the end. it cannot be said to 
be altogether satisfactory. De Jonge 
is the biographer as raconteur this 
is not to say that he lacks scholar- 
ship but, rather, that he has decided 
to lend animation to otherwise 
familiar material by recounting 
journalistic “siones" and repealing 
a few jokes. This would be fine for a 
Reagan or even a Thatcher, but not 
for a Sialin. De Jonge is an urbane 
and witty interpreter: but he is 
dealing here with a phenomenon 
that is neither civilized nor particu- 
larly amusing. So, on occasions, he 
hits a false note. 

But the problem is larger than 
this: Stalin still radiates “a chilling 
and mythic presence'', as de Jonge 
puts it.’ He has become an icon, in 
other words; and conventional biog- 
raphy cannot really deal with such a 
transformation. Stalin has finally 
attained that fate which all his life 
he was pressing towards — be has 
become inhuman. But this may- 
mean that no appropriate “life" can 
now be written. 


The impression I got from 
reading this outstanding biog- 
raphy is that GJL Chesterton, 
extrovert and joyous drinking 
companion, was unhappy. His 
vast consumption of food 
drink, which turned him from 
a tall, slim youth into what 
Malcolm Moggeridge, when 
he met him in his last years, 
described as a balloon, is a 
well-known solace. He had 
amusing and lifelong friends 
like E.C. Bentley with whom 
he was at St Paul's, and 
Hilaire Belloc. They provided 
merriment necessary to bal- 
ance the inner sadness. 

His marriage to Frances 
Blogg was a disaster dressed 
up as a success. The romantic 
G.K. hoped for children and a 
complete family from his tiny 
wife five years older than he. 
During the six-day honey- 
moon on the Norfolk Broads 
be wrote to his parents, "i 
have a wife, a piece of string, a 
pencil, and a knife; what more 
can a man want on a 
honeymoon?" Sex was the 
answer, bnt he never got it. He 
was driven to pretending his 
marriage was happy by extol- 
ling it as a binding unity of 
habit and spirit. Frances was a 
good nanny, but she was a 
rotten wife. 

Poor G.K. was too confined 
by religious scruples to relieve 
his agony by having sex 
elsewhere, at least u Mr 
Ffinch is to be believed. There

Mr Ffinch is wrong, and that

tramped over the bills with

it came to him that here was a *

“The trouble with the

Cool Pym’s Number Seven 


If you feel like treating your- 
self to the latest novels 10 read 
on the beach, this, l fear is not 
the week to do it. On the 
whole, this is a dismal bunch. 
Can blurfr-writers be sued 
under the Trade Descriptions 
Act? Am I alone in failing to 
find The Baker Papers , a first 
novel by Edward Hawke, 
“wickedly comic?" I would, 
regretfully, call it mindlessly 
ponKupaphic. I looked hope- 
fully for the frivolity and fun 
promised in Missing Persons: 
the cool and elegant dust- 
jacket of David Cbok's latest 
offering was certainly enticing, 
as were the glowing comments 
about his earlier books. But all 
the cleverness I found was 
cruelly at the expense of the 
writer's own creations. He has 
a gimlet eye for the ugly and 
the grotesque, especially in old 
people; he clinically cata- 
logues evidence of physical 
and mental deterioration; and 
he is unkind about sex. Love 
seems to be beyond his ken; 
although only such an illogical 
emotion could logically have 
bound the repulsive Frank 
and Edith together for fifty 
years, David Cook does not 
approximate to tenderness. 
Like the heartless Hetty whose 
prurient curiosity starts the 
search for persons better left 
missing, David Cook “knows 
the tricks,” but this makes for 
uncomfortable reading. 

PJ. Kavanagh has taken 
one of the great themes of ou r 
time to make into a smalt 
novel; not just a slim volume, 
but one wife a disappointingly 
narrow emotional range as 
well. For a story of betrayal 
and vengeance it is strangely

grips with him. This highlights 
!he futility of the deaths he 
causes; it also disinclines one 
to believe in Kerr's gesture in 
leaving the easy avenues of 
success for a chance to learn 
about reality. Kavanagh is 
predictably strong on descrip- 
tion, surprisingly banal in 
dialogue. The absence of mag- 
netism and tension makes this 
a sad little tale, a postscript to 
life, not a chapter in it 
I approached Barbara 
Pym’s fast unpublished novel 
gingerly. If her formidable 
critical intelligence bad reject- 
ed this script, it would surely 
require a devotee to admire it; 
and I had found the Pym 
journals exceptionally de- 
pressing. On first reading An 
Academic Question seemed to 
confirm my fears; the mixture 
much as usual, with academ- 
ics instead of clergymen, but 
thin. Set in 1970. it does not 
have quite the cool formality 
and decorum that are so 
attractive in the post-war nov- 
els. Caroline Grimslone, wife 
of a redbrick university lectur- 
er, is on the fringe of the 
permissive society and uncer- 
tain how to cope with iL Not 
endowed with strong feelings, 
she is more at ease with the 
older generation, who are 
dotty but safe, than with her 
aggressive contemporaries 
until her husband's infidelity 
makes her realize how narrow 
her life has become. By the 
end she can think “how 
'ongoing' fife was,” and be “at 
the moment glad of it,” even 
though the immediate pros- 
pect hardly seems very pleas- 
ing and “later she might 
change her mind.” Taken over 
again, it is of course full of 
shrewd observation and hu- 
mour, and a gentle cattincss 
(Barbara Pym is distinctly 
catty rather than bitchy) 
which beautifully deflates aca- 
demic pretension and puis 
social trendiness in its place. 
Not vintage Pym. but a solid 
addition to the canon. 

And at last, one for the 
beach. I have not yet read 
Diva or Nana or Luna or Lola. 
but if they are as enjoyable as 
Vida the set should keep one 
amused all summer. 
Delacorta creates a world of 
pure fantasy (or is Los Angeles 
really peopled with teen-age 
tycoons who live in pyra- 
mids?) where his characters do 
exactly what they want, how- 
ever outrageous, with money 
flowing from a seemingly 
inexhaustible cornucopia of 
Californian bounty. Read 
Vida for pace, for surprise, for 
fun, and for admiration of a 
writer who can puli off such a 
splendid trick not once, it 
seems, but five times. 


When Allan Ahlberg and Col- 
in McNaughton published the 
first of their “Red Nose 
Readers” last autumn (Walker 
Books, eight titles at £1.95 
each), they were thinking of 
clowns rather than strong 
liquor. Intoxication of a sort 
can follow though, since chil- 
dren fortunate enough to en- 
counter this dotty rending 
scheme have been found bang- 
ing on the bookcase and 
shouting for more. 

The “more” can take differ- 
ent forms. Among new books 
in the same vein as "Red 
Nose” for instance there are 
simple play-books that you 
can lark about with such as the 
“Surprise Board Books” by 
Mathew Price and Jean 
Claverie (Cape. £1.95). Here, 
in a book like Happy Birth- 
day, you get vicarious present- 
opening: read the words on 
one side of the page and open 
the flap on the other to see 
who's bringing what 

On the other hand, “more” 
can lake you further — a fact 
readily perceived by the pub- 
lishers of “Red Nose”, who 
have begun to issue a follow- 
up series limply entitled “The 
Fun to Read Books” (Walker. 
eight titles at £2.95 each). 
These make a nod in the 
direction of didactic respect- 
ability, by having a reading 
consultant and “readability 


Red noses, teddies, vroom-vroom 
and heads with no bodies for fun 


levels”; but they haven't got in 
the way of free-running imagi- 
native ideas. The double- 
comedy act of words and 
pictures is what counts. 

Having, invidiously, to 
choose favourites from this 
excellent series I would name 
Sarah Hayes's This is the Bear 
from the simpler (yellow- 
back) group - a rhyming saga 
with echoes of “The House 
that Jack Built” about hunting 
for a lost teddy-bear in a 
rubbish-lip. merrily illustrated 
by Helen Craig. And from the 
slightly less simple (red-back) 
group I would choose Char- 
lotte Voake's Tom's Cat 
which is another hunt-ihe- 
animal story, with surprises as 
you turn each page and much 
mouthing of incantations, like 
“chatter-chauer” and 
“vroom-vroom”. 

The civilized business of 
putting stories first and read- 
ing levels second can also be 
seen in the “Cartwheels” se- 
ries, which rolled out at about 
the same time as '“Red Nose", 
but with rather less panache. 
Four new titles have now 
appeared (Hamish Hamilton, 
£2.95 each) — including an

unexpected excursion into 
modern midsummer magic by 
Rosemary Sutcliff — The 
Roundabout Horse, illustrated 
by Alan Marks. 

As with the Walker books, 
the publishers are using a 
series format to economize on 
production costs: and it's not 
easy to find many picture- 
books at the posher end of the 
market that offer equivalent 
satisfactions to these titles. 
The liveliest competition orig- 
inates in America, with Wil- 
liam Joyce's George Shrinks 
(Gotlancz. £5.95). which plays 
games with the idea of a small 
boy. three inches high, getting 
on with the day's chores; and 
Aliki's Jack and Jake (The 
Bodlcy Head, £5.25) about 
telling, or not-telling. the dif 
ference between twins. 

Some grading and levelling 
has been going on on behalf of 
older children too in Our Best 
Stories, edited by .Anne Wood 
and Ann Pilling (H odder & 


Stoughton , £5.95), but here the 
arbiters are the children them- 
selves. The book stems from a 
consumer survey conducted 
by ihe Federation of 
Children’s Book Groups, 
which oreanized the reading of 
loads or stories to loads of 
children, and then logged their 
reactions. These are fairly 
predictable (“I liked the bit 
with the heads with no bodies 
best" said one tot about 
Margaret Mahy’s “The Horri- 
ble Story'’).' but the exercise 
has produced some unexpect- 
ed finds, and is accompanied 
by a rather gormless list of 
what to read next. 

Now here are some partial- 
ly-graded and entirely untest- 
ed recommendations from 
among the season's new 
children’s novels. 

• The Boy and the Whale, by 
Katherine Schotes, illustrated 
by David Wong (Viking Kes- 
trel. £4.95). Semi -picture book 
from Australia about re- 
launching a beached pygmy 
whale. Closely observed, with 
a couple of nasty, but unneces- 
sary. trophy-hunters added, 
for superfluous drama. 


• The Not-Just-Anybody 
Family. by Betsy Byars ( The 
Bodlcy Head. £4.95 j. Mom is 
away rodeo-riding; Pap (i.c. 
grandpa) is gaoled for firing a 
shotgun in the high street: 
Junior is in hospital with both 
legs broken Ihe was experi- 
menting with manned flight 
from the old barn roof) — so 
it's up to Vcme and Maggie 
and the dog to sort things oul 

• The December Rose, by 
Leon Garfield [Viking Kestrel. 
£6 .95). Presumably manufac- 
tured from the television play 
about a climbing-boy who 
hears more up the chimney 
than he should have done, and 
escapes into the moils of 
Victorian Petit Guignol. 
What's nice about both Betsy 
Byars and Leon Garfield is the 
way they trust their readers to 
follow stories with interweav- 
ing plots. 

• The Silent Shore, by Ruth 
Elwin Harris {Julia .\iacRae. 
£7.95). First instalment in 
what may be the Little Wom- 
en of our tiroes — although 
here the gir/s are orphaned, 
and a much less sympathetic 
Marmie is played by the 
rector’s wife, whose sons are 
the (doomed) Little Men. The 
novel begins in 1910 and is 
told from the point of view of 
Sarah, the youngest daughter.

Russia, in the old joke, pro- 
duces more history than it can 
consume locally — and this 
could be said of A Daughter of 
the A 'ability, an enormous 
novel, spanning the years 
from the heroine’s birth on the 
same day in 1697 as one of the 
Tsar’s daughters (and there- 
fore also called Tatyana! to 
exile in Paris in the 1920s. Her 
father grew up with the Tsar, 
served in the Army with him, 
but fell out of favour by 
marrying a beautiful Polish 
princess. The girl Tatyana is 
the only child of a doting 
father and a cold, unloving 
mother, a famous beauty, who 
dies giving birth to the much 
longed for son. Her father is 
inconsolable; his hair turns 
white; and die is sent off to 
Poland to be brought up by 
her mother's immensely grand 
Polish family. 

Before the war and the 
revolution tbat swept away 
the old world, the children 
spoke English, brought up by 
governesses in a feudal way of 
life that did not ignore the 
necessities of noblesse oblige. 
The young giri is ambitious, 
and wants to be a doctor — 
unheard of in her family. She 
is also desperately in love with 
her Polish cousin Stefan, old 
Etonian, and on the way to 
Oxford. What follows is 
dreadfully familiar, from his- 
tory — ihe war, the sudden 
descent into poverty and fear, 
the desperate schemes for 
escape threatened on every 
side, protected by the few 
remaining old servants, and 
the additional peril of being a 
close friend of the Royal 
family. A marriage of conve- 
nience (on her side) brings a 
new kind of family life in 
Paris, where she can work for 
her fellow Russians. The au- 
thor knows the background 
well - her father was a music 
tutor to the Tsar's nephews - 
but ibe earnest Tatyana with 
her thirst for knowledge lacks 
sparkle. It is the old servants, 
fee .nurse Nyanya, and

• The Salt Keepers, by Barba- 
ra WhitnelL (H odder & 
Stoughton. £10.95) is a histori- 
cal romance — set in Seven- 
teenth-Century Bermuda, 
where Dorcas Foley, an 18- 
year-old beauty, is expecting a 
child by her lover, the hand- 
some Kit Mallory. She has no 
doubt that he will marry her 
but handsome is as handsome 
does, and he leaves for En- 
gland without knowing of her 
peril. She is forcibly married 
off to Captain Zachariah 
Hard i man, a widower with 
two children. He is in the salt 
trade on the Grand Cay, a 
barren island on which life is a 
struggle. The marriage is an 
unexpected success - 
Hardiman is a good man, and 
willing to bring up Dorcas's 
son as his own. Some interest- 
ing period details. The irresist- 
ible Kit returns, of course, 
bringing havoc to all the lives 
he touches, but the story bowls 
along at a great rale. 

• Lady of Hay. by Barbara 
Erskine (Michael Joseph, 
£10.95) combines the Twenty 
eita and the Twelfth centunesi 
in the person ofJo Gifford, a 
journalist, who is hypnotized, 
and regresses back to being 
Matilda de Braose. wife to 
William, one of King Johns 
barons. Life in the Twelfth 
Century was hard and bru- 
tal - Barbara Erskine can 
tpake us feel the cold, smeH 


the filth, and experience some 
of the fear of the power of evil 
men. Her modem characters 
are far less believable. Matilda 
has a lover, and so does Jo: but 
arc they the same mao? King 
John is obsessed by her, and in 
the end. kills her. Will Jo be 
killed by the man who repre- 
sents King John in her life? 

The unfortunate young 
woman finds herself regress- 
ing without being hypnotized, 
falling into alarming trances at 
most awkward moments, and 
being unable, in the end. to tell 
t’other from which. The 
author’s story telling talent is 
undeniable; but I hope she will 
stick to the past in her next 
book. 

• Tbe Isle of Glass, by Judith 
Tare (Bantam Press, £8.95) is 
also set io the popular Twelfth 
Century, but this time we have 
Richard the Uonheart, great 
warrior, and fancier of pretty 
young men. .Alfred, though 
extraordinarily handsome, is a 
priest, a monk of Si Ruan, 
picked up as a foundling — 
but his origins are mysteri- 
ous. Why were three white 
owls protecting the sleeping 
child? How is II though he 
must be seventy, that he looks

Each time discord threatens to 
overwhelm harmony, the 
Commonwealth feces a test of 
renewal Each time, so fer, it has 
passed the test and emerged 
stronger. That does not mean 
discord is a good thing, but it does 
suggest an inner strength on which 
the Commonwealth can count: a 
conviction that it matters enough 
to require all concerned to keep it 
secure by keeping it true to itself. 

To our member countries, the 
Commonwealth matters In dif- 
ferent ways. For some smaller but 
developed countries, like New 
Zealand, it is an irreplaceable 
point of contact with a cross- 
section of the world. For the 
Caribbean, it is an outreach to 
Africa and Asia - where most of 
their people have their roots -and 
to Britain and Canada, where 
many have newer links. 

To middle countries such as 
Australia and Canada the 
Commonwealth is a facility that 
not only underlines important ties 
with the past but enhances their 
I outward-looking role in the world. 
For Africa, in these formative 
years of nation-building and the 
struggle against dominion and 
racism, it has offered a multiracial 
forum and a tangible strength. For 
Asia, it has been a bridge from the 
past to the future. 

For small member states every- 
where — 26 with a population of 
less than a million — the 
Commonwealth provides the 
warmth of community in an often 
heartless world; and much prac- 
tical help. 

In a sense, the Commonwealth 
should matter most to Britain; for 
it was Britain’s liberal instincts 
and particular political genius that 
gave the Commonwealth to the 
world. But Britain's role as a 
major power sometimes blurs that 
acknowledgement The Common- 
wealth beyond Britain believes 
that the connection enlarges the 
mother country’s role and in- 
fluence in the world. Yet some in 
Britain lend to see the Common- 
wealth as "them”, not “us"; and 
sometimes as an irritant. 

Accentuating the positive, 
caring about it and counting the 
invisible benefits, are as necessary 
for Britain as for ah other mem- 
bers. But there are more tangible 


It must 
survive and 


grow, says 
Shridath 
Ramphal 


The truth is that the Common- 
wealth has won the respect of the 
world community partly because 
of its capacity to face up to 
differences and to reconcile them. 

In a few days seven Common- 
wealth leaders will meet in Lon- 
don. They will consider how the 
Commonwealth must respond 
collectively to the situation in 
South Africa. If the Common- 
wealth itself is their compass, the 
report of the Eminent Persons 
Group trill be their guide. 

Much of the recent public 
debate has been carried on in 


factors that strengthen the 
Commonwealth's significance for 
Britain. Her volume of trade with 
the rest of the Commonwealth 
remains especially advantageous. 
While Britain's share of industrial 
countries* exports is only S per 
cent, her share of those exports to 
many developing Commonwealth 
countries exceeds 25 per cent In 
1985, Commonwealth countries 
as a group imported nearly 10 
times more from Britain than did, 
for example. South Africa. 

Beyond trade, nearly 40 percent 
of UK overseas investment is in 
the Commonwealth, nearly 20 per 


terms which imply a greater gap in 
policy than I believe exists. The 
choice was never between a “no- 
sanctions” policy on the one hand 
and “comprehensive” or 
"general” sanctions on the other. 
The Commonwealth (including 
Britain) and the rest of the world 
already apply a variety of sanc- 
tions, including economic sanc- 
tions, against South Africa. 

As events continue to confirm 
the conclusions the EPG reached, 
I have no doubt whatever that 
there will be agreement on still 
further measures, both in the 
Commonwealth and beyond it. It 
is a time, therefore, for the debate 
to shift to that middle ground 
which can be common ground. 
Far from crumbling in the face of 
difficulty (and giving joy to Pre- 
toria in the process), the 
Commonwealth can next week 


cent in developing countries — 
compared with o per cent in South 
Africa. Kenya, India, Bangladesh, 
Botswana and Brunei are all net 
lenders to the UK banking system. 
Were the Commonwealth to die, 
Britain’s relations with Africa, the 
Caribbean and the Pacific would 
of course continue: but, increas- 
ingly, within the framework of the 
Lom6 Convention and with Brus- 
sels as its focus. 

These are ail part of Common- 
wealth realities. They help to 
explain why the Commonwealth 
must matter to everyone; and why 
it should neither be taken for 
granted, nor heedlessly damaged 

It bears remembering, too, that 
for none of its member countries 
is the Commonwealth wholly 
without vexation — more often 
than not as a knock-on from 
bilateral quarrels. But a quarrel 
with one is not an occasion for 
disowning or disparaging the 
Commonwealth, still less for leav- 
ing it 


enlarge its potential for being 
effective against apartheid — ana 
emerge stronger. 

And, as it endures, the 
Commonwealth will not only help 
the cause of freedom in South 
Africa; it will wait to welcome a 
free South Africa back into its 
midst. One of the valuable 
contributions of the EPG is that 
the people of South Africa who 
stand against apartheid — black, 
brown. Coloured and white — 
understand that the Common- 
wealth is on their side and -will 
want to be a part of it again. We do 
well to remember this when we 
think about the future of South 
Africa — even those who think 
mainly in economic and strategic 
terms.

The threat by some members of 
the Commonwealth to' abandon 
their membership does not much 
worry the British electorate; the 
boycott of- the Edinburgh games 
excites only irritation and con- 
tempt The real worry has lain in 
the suggestion of any involvement 
by theQueen in the South African 
issue and the possibility of a 
domestic political crisis. 

For this reason, and because the 
whittling away of the Common- 
wealth by individual departures 
would bean untidy and humiliat- 
ing business for everyone, the time 
may have come to ask as dis- 
passionately as possible whether it 
should not rather be Britain itself 
that raises the question of the 
utility of the Commonwealth, and 
whether its dissolution wouid not 
be more in accord with British 
interests and Britain’s European 
and North Atlantic destinies. 

In any such debate; the histori- 
cal perspective is likely to reveal 
the rapid and total transformation 
which the Commonwealth has 
undergone since the Imperial Con- 
ference of 1926, when the first 
effort was made to formulate its 
t essentials. What .was attempted 
then was a formal recognition of 
the domestic selfgoverament and 
international personality of each 
of the dominions. It was declared 
that the "autonomous commu- 
nities within the British Empire” 
were "equal in status, in no way 
subordinate one to another in any 
aspect of their domestic or .ex- 
ternal affairs, though united by a 
common allegiance to the 
Crown”. 

There were, of course, other 
aspects of the Commonwealth 
relationship which were assumed, 
though not formally spelled out; 
the two most important were a 
special relationship in the sphere 
of defence — which, at the time, 
meant participation in the mari- 
time Pax Britannica — which and 
an assumed common devotion to 
the practice and principles of 
parliamentary government In . 
each country the monarch or his 
representative would act upon the 
advice of ministers responsible to 
parliament; matters of common 
concent would be negotiated be- 
tween individual governments. , 

It was hoped that this flexible

Touchdown for the gridiron game

. the growth of 
British interest in 
American football

'C7> > - 


It is a curious habit of the British 
to embrace some bit of American 
popular culture and then be 
snooty about it, purely because it 
is so popular here: witness the fast- 
food chains and the Dallas genre 
of soap-operas. But American 
football seems to be reversing the 
usual process of importation fol- 
lowed by complaints about gross 
vulgarity. 

British ideas about American 
football have traditionally 
matched the supercilious concept 
of Americans as a race of simple- 
minded louts. Until the early 
Eighties it wouid have been bard 
to find a Briton who disagreed 
with American historian Jacques 
Barzun’s verdict on the sport it 
was, he said, "more like an 
emergency happening at a dis- 
tance than a game” In Britain the 
"so-called” football played by 
Yanks was seen as consisting of 
two 1 1-man squads of gargantuan 
boneheads bashing each other up 
and down a striped field called a 
“gridiron". 

This impression was derived 
partly from delicate American 
intellectuals such as Baizun, partly 
from cinema caricatures, and to

some extent from fragmentary 
information dating back to 1910, 
when visiting teams from Idaho 
and Vermont played the first 
American football game to be seen 
in England. 

In- those days it really was a 
contest of brute force, with the 
1905 season recording 18 deaths 
and 159 serious injuries. Today's 
teams are very big men, but they 
play a game which has come to 
depend less on muscle and more 
on a complex blend of imagina- 
tion, speed, ball-handling stall and 
coordination. And it is this pe- 


seems to appeal to British players 
and fens. 

Until about four years ago 
American football was a curiosity 
in Britain, the exclusive property 
of US service teams or small 
groups of American civilians who 
played "touch” or “flag” football, 
without helmets and heavy pad- 
ding. But after the Channel 4 
series on American football began 
to build a British following for the 

g me, a London contractor, Bob 
«, decided he would like to try 
it. 

He persuaded a friend at Capital 
Radio to broadcast an invitation 
to form a British team, and went 
to Hyde Park the following Sun- 
day, expecting 50 or 60 would-be 
players to turn up. In the event he 
was faced with a crowd of 400. 

Advice and coaching from 
American civilians and service 
teams helped to pare this mob 
down into the first British club to 
play American football in foil 
gear. They called themselves the 
London Ravens, and in July 1983 
they played their first proper game 
against an American side from 
Chicksands Air Base, losing by 
just one touchdown. It was a 
remarkable result for Brits who 
had picked up the game, literally 
from scratch, only a year before. 


Meanwhile the Channel 4 series 
has inspired the formation of 
clubs all over the country. At latest 
count there are almost 500 of 
them, organized into three 
leagues, the largest of which is 
sponsored by Anheuser-Busch, the 
American brewers of Budweiser 
beer. Increasing public support 
has also brought local company 
sponsorship for individual teams. 
Though the quality of play varies 
widely, the best games attract very 
respectable crowds: the Budweiser 
Bowl match at Crystal Palace on 
August 31 is expected to be an 
18,000 sell-out 


British players, who tended at 
first to approach American foot- 
ball as “a man's game”, found that 
macho enthusiasm was not 
enough. Lance Cone, American 
coach of the Ravens, admits to 
some problems with “eye-hand 
coordination” and ball handling 
for his players who, unlike Ameri- 
cans, have not grown up with the 
game. But he says that they 
continue to improve rapidly. 

The Ravens, like many other 
dubs, liaise with schools and run a 
youth programme of touch foot- 
ball. For the part-time adult 
players there are coaching sessions 
conducted by visiting American 
professionals such as Dan Marino 


of the Miami Dolphins. Ravens 
captain John Aska is exuberant 
about the ftiture of the sport here, 
predicting that the present leagues 
will eventually combine and com- 
pete with existing leagues in Italy, 
France, Germany ana Scandina- 
via. Once a new generation has 
grown up with the game, enough 
talent may emerge to form frill- 
time professional teams on the 
American model. 

The troubles of British football 
have helped to increase atten- 
dances the American game, which 
does not attract the yob-mob. 
British fans, once they have 
mastered the basics of American 
football, find it a relaxing and 
entertaining spectacle. The size of 
crowds here has begun to attract 
professional interest in the US; on 
Sunday the first National Football 
League game to be played in 
Britain, featuring the Chicago 
Bears and the Dallas Cowboys, 
will kick off at Wembley Stadium. 

So far there is no sign that this 
American invasion of the British 
sports scene has aroused any 
chauvinistic resentment. On the 
contrary, through the sympathy 
and fervour of its fans, American 
football may be help ing to repair 
the recent damage to the British 
popular image ofthe US.

Tonight sees the return of the BBC 
television programme Body Mat- 
ters. in which Drs Graeme Gar- 
den, Alan Maryon-Davis and 
Gillian Rice set out to prove how 
exciting, if not dangerous, it is to 
have a body. To give you a 
foretaste of tonight’s medical cir- 
cus, I am privileged to bring you a 
transcript of a programme that 
was too exciting for even them to 
put out: 

THE BRAIN! 

(A TV studio. full of an apprehen- 
sive audience. There is a distant 
sound of machinery. Suddenly , a 
door opens in the studio wail and a 
racing car enters at !40mph. It 
crashes into the far wall, and 
Dr Maryon-Davis steps from it, 
completely unhurt.) 

Maryoo-Davis: , A top racing 
driver has a brain rather like a 
computer, dealing with a hundred 
messages a minute. They lei! him 
to slow down, to change his tyres 
and to display the sponsor’s 
message on his helmet Bat, above 
all, his brain tells him: “What am I 
doing in a crazy sport like motor 
racing?” 

Garden (descending by parachute): 
And there again, perhaps the brain 
is more like a telephone switch- 


moreover . . . Miles Kington 

I think, therefore 
I’m on camera 


board, receiving up to 10,000 calls 
a minute. (A telephone rings. He 
picks it up.) I’m sorry, but all lines 
to Gillian Rice’s brain are en- 
gaged. Please try later. 

Rice: That's because, however 
clever our brains are, we can only 
do one tbing at a time. And one 
person who knows a lot about 
brainpower is AJ. Ayer. (She 
moves over to Professor Ayer.) 
Professor, I wonder if you realize 
that your name is Spanish for 
“yesterday”? 

Ayer: No, I had no idea. (T remen- 
dous applause.) 

Maryon-Davis: So you see, even 
the best brain' in the world is no 
use if it is wrongly programmed. 
(He jumps out ofthe window.) 
Garden: Thank you, Alan. Sci- 
entists now think that after mil- 
lions of years of evolution, the 
brain] has found its ultimate 


function: playing Trivial Pursuit. 
(Several elephants enter and do the 
Charleston. Cut to Maryon-Davis. 
holding a large plastic kulpture.) 
Maryon-Davis: Yes, this is what 
your brain would look like if you 
were 50 feet tall and had no skull 
But inside it's a quite different 
aory. (He opens a panel in the 
brain. Thunder, lightning and a 
brief shower of rain emerge.) 
That's what we call a brainstorm. 
Rice: And there again, perhaps the 
brain is more like a very large 
public library. Some of it is in use; 
but most of it is either misfiled or 
overdue. Sir Gaud Jacks, you are 
director ofthe British Library, are 
you not? 

Jacks: Yes. that is correct 
(Overwhelming applause. Cut to a 
huge statue of Maryon-Davis.) 
Garden: Thjs is what Alan 


Maryon-Davis looks like from 
outside, but inside it’s quite a 
different story. (He opens the 
statue and Gillian Rice steps out, 
holding a bag of microchips. She 
sprinkles sou and vinegar over 
them.) 

Rice: Delirious! But we now know 
that although the human brain is 
perhaps the most sophisticated 
part of the human body, it is only 
capable of absorbing one feet from 
every television programme. 
Garden (speaking underwater): 
Amazing, isn't it? This means that 
although you have been listening 
to us for the past half-hour, your 
brain probably hasn't registered a 
single thing. 

Maryon-Davis: (Arriving in a 
space capsule, which bums up on 
re-entry) So here’s one thing we 
definitely do want you to remem- 
ber, and that’s that we'll be back 
next week to tell you all about 
tennis elbow. 

Rice: And we’ll have John 
McEnroe, Ivan Lendl and a large 
model of part of John Lloyd! 
Garden: So. till then, it’s goodbye ; 
from our brains, without which 
this programme could never have 
happened. 

Rtau Or something like thaL 
Maryoo-Davis: We think. 


formula could also serve in other 
pans . of the empire a$ they 
achieved dominion status, and 
that the same general imderstand- 
■ fogs would prevail.'. This was still 
true of British perceptions of the 
Commonwealth as recently as the 
negotiations leading to Indian 
independence in 1947. 

One way of describing wbat has 
happened in the past 40 years is to 
say that successive British govern- 
ments have been so determined to 
keep the Commonwealth in exis- 
tence — the -adjective “British” 
disappeared after 1949 —and to 
ensure maximum membership, 
that they have been prepared to 
sacrifice all the elements that went 
to make up' the Commonwealth 
relationship in its classical form. 

Yet at the same time they have 
used a vocabulary which conceals 
much of wbat has been happening, 
thus giving ~ added bargaining 
power to other Commonweal lb 
governments through appeals to a 
sentiment that is itself i'rrdevant 
to the contemporary situation. . 

The diminishing power of Brit- 
ain obviously made it impossible 
for the Commonwealth to retain 
any important significance in the 
sphere of- defence. Nevertheless, 
the original idea of the Common- 
wealth would exclude the possibil- 
ity of member states becoming 
part of the so-called non-aligned 
movement which often takes po- 
sitions hostile *10 the interests of 
Britain and her allies. 

Even more striking is the total 
elimination of foe idea that 
Commonwealth, membership im- 
plies a commitment to par- 


liamentary government. Military 
'dictatorships, personal tyrannies 
and one-party states afl exist as 
equal partners in foe Comroon- 
-wealtft association. 

h is not only the unspoken 
assumptions of foe relationship 
that have been set aside; iris 
equally foe case with, foe wo 
formal constitutional - require- 
' ments originally set out- Smce 
India was allowed- to retain 
membership of the Common- 
wealth when it became a repuoK, 
allegiance to foe Crown has no 
longer been foe binding force that 
was ■ intended. . The Common- 
wealth now' contains as many 
republics as monarchies, not to 
mention those members which are 
••■monarchies but not of foe House 
of Windsor. 

Furthermore, while it remains 
the case that its member nations 
are “in no way subordinate to one 
another”, this has not prevented 
increasing assertions of tne-Ttgni . 
of Commonwealth countries to 
make demands of each other, 
notably of Britain, and w fortify 
these demands through political 
pressure. . - 

To many people; these demands 
have been most visible m foe 
sphere of “aid”, where govern- 
ments whose incompetence has 
.added to their genuine economic- 
problems see nothing incongruous; 
in agitating for greater contribu- 
tions from Britain while denounc- 
ing British policies. Yet British 
attempts to ^-persuade other 
Commonwealth countries to alter 
their foreign or domestic policies 
would undo ubtedly be resisted. 

To most people in this country; 


the role of Queen of England, with 
its historical roots and its vital ride 
in the constitution, is much more

pens in politics will* bd interpreted 
in electoral terms, and the ques- 
tions Mrs Thatcher now has to 
face are how well-situated the 
government is to fight an election, 
and when that election should take 
place. 

Since foe unexpected is the ; 
staple of politics it is tempting to . 
keep open options on foe second 
point, but in all the circumstances 
in which the government .now - 
finds itself I doubt whether that 
would be wise. 

The government isnowbeset by 
misfortunes for which it cannot be 
blamed, as well as disasters of its 
own making. The Westland affair, 
the aftertaste of which was revived 
on the eve of foe recess by the 
report of the Commons Select 
Committee on defence, was. the 
most traumatic event in the latter 


category. With melodramatically 
quarrelling ministers, officials 
lacking a due sense of the chain of 
responsibility and theprime min- 
ister at foe centre of a political 
storm as events careered out of 
. control, .foe Westland episode was 
perhaps the single most important 
turning-point towards foe public's 
present opinion of the govern-. 
menL 

- But if foe more*- substantial 
problems of public life were 
improving, Westland would hot, 
in. the end, matter. Nor even 
I would the allegations that the 
Queen has been critical, not only 
of Mre Tbatcher's-policy on sanc- 
tions, but of her soda! attitudes as 
welL It is only possible io guess at 
foe kind of rash, unguarded, or 
pretentious words which alone can 
have made such a report possible. 

But it is inherently unconvinc- 
ing that the Queen, even if she 
held any such opinions,' would 
have wished them to be used as a 
political weapon. What matters 
most , now is that -this episode 
should not now be used by anyone 
to risk long-term damage to. the 
monarchy. 

In the short term, however, the- 
damage is probably to 
Mrs Thatcher, though not because 
foe British people love the 
Commonwealth, with " its too 
many hectoring and arbitrary : 
governments, or admire foe in- ' 
mannered abuse unleashed by 
President Kaunda on Sir Geofrey 
Howe's peace mission, or thrill to 
Bishop Tutu’s Christian 
pronouncement that President

Much more serious is the fell in

The CBrslatestqtrazt^ly report

decline in the utilization of busi- 

, ness caparityand in - employment = 
that will last until the end of this 
year at least. It is an international 
rather than a specifically British 
problem, but it promises HI for a 
1987 election campaign. It is no 
surprise that foe Chancellor of foe 
Exchequer, Nigel Lawson, was 
recently hinting at a 1988 election, 
and he: was .right 

' : AD this isseen by the Chancellor 
as a temporary pause -in growth. 
Tax cuts are stiU bis budget 
' objective. But the scope for them 
will be consfrained.bofo by lower 
oil revenues ~ and by competing 
pressures, for higher spending on 
schools and hospitals; ' which 
would be justified as such but is . 
made more difficult because local 
spending remains largely out of 
-control, land is' now more than 
ever in the grip oflocal authorities . 
inimical to this government. 

But even a tax-cutting budget 
will nor be enough. A; 1987 
election was . projected on -foe 
assumption that- this- autumn 
would be a boom period,' It will 
not be. • ;* 

In this situation the government ' 

would be unwise to set much store

however, still -in -the -lead) in .foe • ■

dtat more . people agree with . ■

For all these reasons it would j 
make sense for the prime minister 
to decide during this recess that .

which time economic activity -

damaging to Mrs Thatcher is the 
alleged confirmation of foe now 
widespread Opinion that she is 
insensitive to dosed .hospital 
wards, deteriorating schools hnd 
rising unemployment 

The single-mindedness which 
was her asset during foe fight 
gaunst inflation or to recover foe 
rialklands or against foe Scareiil 
threat to democracy now seems 
like rigid inability to devise new 
policies for different problems. 
That is foe Tories’ basic difficulty, 
and now it is made much more 
dangerous by foe deterioration in 
the short-term economic outlook. 

The Treasury does not now 
doubt that the present slowdown 
in economic activity is set to 
continue for some months ... . 


than to give, the impression that 
foe government, intended a 1987

SANCTIONS IN PROSPECT 


Sir Geoffrey Howe’s prospects 
as the European Community's 
emissary, despatched to per- 
. suade Pretoria to change its 
ways, were always bleak. If 
President Botha had any inten- 
tion of releasing Nelson 
Maadefek it was unlikely that 
he would be seen to do so as a 
result of external pressure. The 
National Party Congress in 
August always seemed a more 
plausible occasion for so dra- 
matic a change in Pretoria’s 
policy. 

But the public brosqaeness 
of his rejection of Mandela's 
release was ill-judged by any 
standard. It will make . it 
difficult for him to make that 
particular (and crucial) con- 
cession in future. If nothing 
else, normal political caution 
should have induced Mr Botha 
not to slam the door so firmly 
in Sir Geoffrey’s face. 

It is not only Pretoria which 
has miscalculated, however. 
By stressing the formula 
“diplomacy or sanctions”, the 
Government has ensured that 
the failure of Sir Geoffrey’s 
mission will almost certainly 
compel Ministers to acquiesce 
in some form of sanctions. Yet 
sanctions or “selective 
measures” are as perverse and 
fruitless today as they were 
before Sir Geoffrey embarked 
on his pilgrimage. 

How will they actually 
achieve their stated objective 
and bring an end to apartheid 
closer? No one has yet pre- 
sented an even remotely plau- 
sible explanation. 

One body of opinion, repre- 
sented by Mr David Steel, 
believes that they will (in some 
unspecified way) induce white 
South Africans to see the light 


and reject President Botha’s 
government. A harsher 
(though hardly more realistic) 
view js that sanctions will so 
impoverish the blacks that 
they wifl be driven to revolu- 
tion which, the armchair strat- 
egists comfortably assume, 
wifl succeed without major 
external assistance in the 
foreseeable future. Finally, 
there is the cynical argument 
that sanctions will have no real 
impact on Smith Africa at all — 
which doesn't matter since 
their real purpose is to dem- 
onstrate to the Common- 
wealth and to the ANC (whose 
takeover in South Africa is 
assumed to be unavoidable) 
that Britain and die West are 
on their side. 

These arguments ignore the 
facts. Mr Botha felt confident 
enough to pull the plug on Sir 
Geoffrey Howe's mission pre- 
cisely because the real prospect 
of sanctions is already uniting 
white South Africa. As whites 
are forced to examine the 
nightmare of sanctions realis- 
tically, they discover that they 
can live with h. Indeed, a sober 
analysis suggests that the 
South African economy — at 
present in the trough of the 
longest and deepest recession 
for fifty years - will almost 
certainly benefit from the hot- 
house effect sanctions will 
induce. 

An economy which has been 
crippled by a net outflow of 
capital will now benefit from 
putting that capital to use in 
import replacement, .while 
even the best laid plans of the 
Commonwealth Secretariat 
and the US Congress will not 
prevent South African exports 
from reaching world markets. 


Nor — despite Dr David 
Owen’s blithe prescripiions — 
are there any sanctions known 
to man or the SDP so selective 
in their targets that they will 
hurt South African whiles 
while leaving the blacks un- 
scathed. 

And would even effective 
sanctions so impoverish black 
South Africans that they 
would fuel revolution and 
even guarantee its success? 
Revolution seldom marches 
on an empty stomach. If 
sanctions arc effective, their 
first victims will be black 
South Africans and the front 
line states. These will be forced 
either into even closer eco- 
nomic dependence on South 
Africa or to a bankruptcy from 
which the rest of the world will 
be asked to rescue them. The 
South African government, 
however, released by sanctions 
from having to worry about 
international censure, will be 
far less hesitant in deploying 
its resources of control and 
suppression. 

This gloomy prognosis not- 
withstanding, Mrs Thatcher 
may have little choice but to 
agree to some selective mea- 
sures. Political passions have 
taken over. If that is so, the 
Prime Minister should make it 
quite dear that she will not be 
swept along by the demand for 
ever more stringent sanctions 
— including the naval blockade 
mentioned by both Mr Heath 
and Mr Healey — when the 
first measures fail as they 
inevitably wifl. Those who 
believe that their cry for 
sanctions has been vindicated 
must look at the end of the 
journey before they take the 
first step. 


A GREENER SHADE OF PALE 


Last year the Prime Minister 
endorsed the Environment 
Minister Mr William 
Waldegrave as the man to give 
the Conservative Party a 
greener hue. Thus this year, in 
the wake of Chernobyl, it 
would be surprising if the 
Environment Department did 
not see political and bureau- 
cratic opportunity .in 
emphasizing the cost and dan- ' 
ger of energy generation by 
means of nuclear power, and 
hence the need for government 
vigilance to mitigate its pos- 
sible ill effects. 

Before his reshuffle, Mr 
Kenneth Baker demonstrated 
some nifty footwork on the 
question of low level nuclear 
waste disposal — at the ex- 
pense of coherence in govern- 
ment policy. And now. it 
appears, the Department is 
signalling that a judgement 
over the Central Electricity 
Generating Board’s planning 
application for a new reactor at 
SizeweJi should be deferred. 

Across Whitehall, the 
Department of Energy, the 
sponsor of both the CEGB and 
civil nuclear power, denies 
anything has changed. Why, 
only last month Mr Alastair 
Goodiad, the Minister for the 
nuclear industry, promised 
quick decisions on Sizewell, 
and his Secretary of State, Mr 
Peter Walker, declared the 
Government's great con- 
fidence in nuclear power 
generation now and for years 
to come. 


Reports of delays and defer- 
rals are, of course, anticipatory 
politicking. Sir Frank Layfield, 
an independent spirit, has yet 
to deliver his report It has 
already been much delayed, 
and might legitimately be de- 
layed again. Until it has been 
received, no ministerial de- 
cision can properly be taken. 
In the meantime, there is 
nothing wrong with some Min- 
isters playing the green card. 
Nor is there anything unusual 
in one department’s taking a 
stand antagonistic to another. 

Where the game becomes 
dangerous - to the 
Government’s reputation, 
public confidence and the 
future of energy supply — is at 
the point where the Govern- 
ment fails to provide machin- 
ery for resolving the 
differences between the 
department responsible for 
environmental protection and 
that sponsoring the CEGB. 

In the aftermath of the 
Westland affair it is reasonable 
to question the machinery for 
arbitrating such disputes. Yet 

— and here is the more 
important lesson of Westland 

— the mechanics are irrelevant 
if the Cabinet itself has not 
addressed the the broad strate- 
gic decision. It must make up 
its mind whether it wants the 
British nuclear industry to 
develop or not. 

Sizewell has, inescapably, 
become a measure of political 


commitment to that nuclear 
future. There are important 
arguments about choosing be- 
tween different reactor types, 
of course, but they are now 
subordinate to the question of 
whether construction will take 
place in Suffolk at all. 

Labour, for the sake of the 
Member of Parliament for 
Sellafield who happens to be 
the Opposition Environment 
spokesman, tried to fridge the 
wider issues but has now 
clearly promised not to ap- 
prove the CEGB’s plans. The 
Alliance parties have joined it 
And the Conservatives? For 
politicians of average venality, 
the temptation now is to make- 
sure that a decision on Sizewell 
is deferred. 

The reasons could be 
dressed up in suitable and not 
insincere language: the need to 
digest Sir Frank Layfield's 
voluminous dissertation, 
learning the lessons of 
Chernobyl, the complexity of 
it all, and so on. But it should 
also be remembered that the 
British people, however anx- 
ious about the pollution of the 
sheep fells by Russian fallout, 
have not yet turned against 
civil nuclear power in any 
electorally clear cut way. Their 
uncertainty should not be met 
by Ministerial vacillation. 
Occasional truculent speeches 
by the Secretary of State for 
Energy are not enough. A 
decision on Sizewell is needed, 
soon. 


TOO CLEVER FOR THE TREASURY 


The selection of those judged 
to be great, good, sound and 
reasonably fit enough to serve 
on quangos. Royal Commis- 
sions. Committees of Inquiry 
and any other government- 
appointed bodies, _ is ever a 
mysterious and indefinable 
process — even to those 
practise it It tends to surface 
only when the discreet behind- 
the scenes workings go wrong 
and Whitehall wires are 
crossed. The Treasury veto on 
Mr John Kay, retiring director 
of the Institute of Fiscal Stud- 
ies, after he had been mfer- 
mally asked by a minister from 
another department to be a 
member of the Securities and 
Investment Board is a particu- 
larly unhappy example, it 
shows the Government ma- 
chine at its most defensive and 
club-like in a case where 
resentful political over-sen- 
sitivity has no place at ajj* 

The Securities and Invest- 
ment Board is the crucial body 


enforced.' As such it carries the 
main responsibility to show 
that self-regulation is tough 
enough to protect consumers 
and that a less flexible fully 
statutory system is un- 
necessary. This is no cosy 
committee. 

Appointments to the board 
were put in tbe hands of the 
Department of Trade and 
Industry and the Bank of 
England precisely to give the 
public confidence that it would 
not become a City club. The 
partnership between the 
Department and the Bank 
emphasized that political 
appointments — perfectly jus- 
tiffed on some committees — 
were not appropriate here. 
And, to balance the board, a 
leaven of lay members was to 
be added to the majority of 
practising representatives of 
the financial services industry. 

Mr Michael Howard, the 
Department’s corporate and 
consumer affairs minister, in- 


ment Boara is me w — — -3. consumer anaus numsici, m-

its own City markets unit and 
although the Chancellor has 
no formal role to play, it 
appears that Mr Lawson inter- 
vened and Mr Paul Channon, 
the Trade Secretary, then de- 
cided not to appoint Mr Kay. 

There is nothing scan- 
dalously improper about the 


way this happened But the 
result makes nonsense of the 
intended role of the Depart- 
ment in making the appoint- 
ments. In the nature of things, 
it cannot be said with certainty 
why the Treasury objected 10 
Mr Kay. Tbe only obvious 
reason is that the detailed IFS 
criticisms of the tax and 
benefit systems, which have 
raised the level of public 
debate over the past few years, 
have considerably irritated the 
Treasury and in particular, 
the Inland Revenue. Mr Kay is 
the driving force behind the 
well-publicised work that has 
made the IFS a force to be 
reckoned with yet hard to 
dismiss on grounds of consis- 
tent political bias. 

Indeed the most obvious 
Whitehall objection to Mr Kay 
is that, at 37, he is too clever by 
half. The work and judgments 
of the IFS have little direct 
relevance to the SIB'S work. 
Indeed Mr Kay’s main direct 
interest in the City revolution 
is in running bis Oxford 
college’s share portfolio. Keen- 
ness of mind and the ability to 
see through complex technical 
issues are, however, just what 
the SIB needs from its lay 
members. It is a pity that 
Whitehall pique, exercised by 
keeping Mr Kay off the list of 
the great and good, will casu- 
ally deprive investors of these 
qualities. 





LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Taking sides on Press and Palace 


From Mr Roger Gray, QC 
Sir. One does not need 10 be a 
constitutional lawyer 10 appre- 
ciate the dangers inherent in Press 
suggestions that the Queen is at 
odds with her Prime Minister. 
Indeed, the potential erosion of 
the Queen’s position stares the 
ordinary British citizen in the face. 

It is important, therefore, to put 
this matter in perspective. I will 
assume that all the facts are as the 
Editor of The Sunday Times (July 
29) says they are. Given that Mr 
Michael Shea spoke and behaved 
as alleged, what was tbe duty of the 
Editor of The Sunday Tinted 

“Freedom of the Press" is a cry 
which goes up from Fleet Street or 
Wapping every time its judgment 
is queried. Responsibility is a 
wmxl rarely heard. This in spite of 
tbe feci that Baldwin many yean 
ago defeated the Press barons by 
his observation — “power without 
responsibility, the prerogative of 
Ibe harlot throughout tbe ages". 
But patriotism is the one thing 
that has checked the Press in its 
searcb for a story. It did at tbe time 
of the Abdication, when Lord 
Beaverbrook and others withheld 
the news of the King’s association 
with Mrs Simpson. It did during 
the war. when tbe country's 
existence was at stake. It Iras 
doubtless done so since in a 
variety of circumstances. 

What, then, was the justification 
for Mr Neil’s sowing discord 
where none should nave been 
sown? If Mr Shea behaved as 
badly as Mr NeiJ alleges, why did 
he not communicate at once with 
Sir William Heseltine, the Queen’s 
Private Secretary? I venture to 
think that that would have been 
the reaction of any responsible 
and knowledgeable private citizen 
who chanced to hear the same 
story. . 

In the light of our overall duty 
to the Monarch, three questions 
can be asked of Mr Ncifc 

1. Did he act honourably? 

2. Did he act responsibly? 

3. Did he act within the accepted 
tenets of the Press? 

I think the answer to each 
question is “No". 

Yours faithfully, 

ROGER GRAY, 

Queen Elizabeth Building, 

Temple, EC4. 

July 29. 

From Mr K. H. Kavanagh 
Sir, There are two aspects of Sir 
William Heseltine's letter (July 
28) which arc unsatisfactory. To 
imply that because the Sovereign 
has not acted unconstitutionally 
in 34 years she could never do so is. 
at best a non-sequitur and at worst 
a nonsense. 

To suggest that an experienced 
Press Secretary could be caught 
out by journalists as to the 
Sovereign’s relationship with the 
elected head of government and 
need not reconsider his position is 
“preposterous". 

Yours faithfully. 

K. H. KAVANAGH, 

5 Byron Crescent, 

Bedford. 

July 29. 

From Mr Ernest Mehew 
Sir, The “holier than thou” atti- 
tude running through the letter 
from the Editor of The Sunday 
Times and your own editorial in 
tbe adjoining column of today's 
issue really takes one’s breath 
away. 1 doubt if anyone seriously 
believes that if Sir William 
Heseltine had asked Mr Neil to 
suppress the articles about the 
Queen’s alleged views he would 
have done so. The only example 
he chooses to provide about the 
“checking" of the feature article 
with the Palace shows that the 


journalist “forgot” to make the 
desired correction. 

Mr Neil refers to his honest)- in 
being more specific about his 
“sources”: the journalist con- 
cerned is reported elsewhere in 
your paper as admitting that Mr 
Shea was the principal informant. 
By using the word “sources” and 
implying that they were at the 
highest level, Mr Neil was surely 
failing to apply his own rigorous 
standards of honesty. 

In your editorial you pontificate 
at length about the seriousness of 
the whole episode. You blame tbe 
Palace for its part in this “sorry 
affair” and you say that it would 
be “just” to sack Mr Shea. In other 
words, the Sunday Times version 
must be the tine one. But why 
should we necessarily believe 
journalists, however “experi- 
enced”, rather than distinguished 
public servants, who evidently 
continue to have the confidence of 
the Queen? Coukf you not bring 
yourself even to hint, in an 
editorial ranging over all the 
implications of tne affair, that the 
editor of your sister newspaper 
might bear some responsibility 
and might it not be equally “just" 
to sack Mr Freeman or Mr Neil? 

The Press of this counuy have 
been guilty of publishing untrue 
stories, silly speculation, bad taste 
and intrusion into the private life 
of the Royal Family. In my view 
The Sunday Times have been 
irresponsible in attempting to 
involve the Queen in politics. Bui 
at least spare us hypocrisy!

From Mr Maurice Ross 
Sir. In his letter yesterday Mr 
Andrew Neil states that “At no 
time has The Sunday Times 
inferred that her Majesty was 
party to or aware of any of the 
attitudes being attributed to her". 

Leaving aside the possible 
confusion between “inferred”/ 
“implied" and the fact that one 
cannot be party to an attitude (one 
has one or one hasn’t), how can 
this be reconciled with his later 
statement that “ . . .newspapers 
have always worked on the 
premiss that he (Mr Shea) speaks 
authoritatively about her"? 

Yours faithfully, 

MAURICE ROSS.

From Mr G. H. C. Waters 
Sir, The reported action of the 
Queen's Press Secretary has cre- 
ated a very serious constitutional 
situation, trapping both her Maj- 
esty and the Prime Minister and 
inflicting damage which it will be 
difficult, perhaps impossible, to 
repair completely. 

The defence that it was not 
understood what use might be 
made of any indiscretions in 
conversations with The Sunday 
Times, or what interpretations, 
might possibly be put upon what 
was said, can only be regarded as 
an admission of naivete and 
incompetence. 

On all counts it seems dear 
enough that the Press Secretary 
should resign forthwith. 

Yours etc,

Those in peril 
on the sea 

From the Chief Executive of the 
Institution of Environmental 
Health Officers 

Sir. Your editorial (July 25) rightly 
draws attention to the foul state of 
many of this country’s coastal 
bathing waters. It was indeed 
Whitehall which set the arbitrary 
criteria of a head count to deter- 
mine tbe popularity of bathing 
beaches and thus “Eurobeaches" 
which have to comply with EEC 
standards. 

Tbe minister would have us 
accept that the trend is encourag- 
ing and by the end of this century 
there will be no cause for concent. 
Sadly, tbe main point is missed. 

With increasing leisure time 
and the emphasis on “healthy" 
outdoor pursuits, more people are 
taking to the water, and not just 
immediately off the foreshore. 
Sailing, sail-boarding, diving, surf- 
ing and parascending are increas- 
ingly popular, yet falling in at the 
point of sewage discharge is not 
recommended. 

There can be no justification for 
continuing to pour millions of 
gallons of sewage into our coastal 
waters each year, even a mile off 
shore and in spite of the new 
technology of sewage disposal 
Our coastal waters are all compar- 
atively shallow and a natural asset, 
not for indiscriminate dumping of 
human and industrial waste but 
for our safe and healthy enjoy- 
ment 

Yours faithfully,

Redundant churches 

From the Reverend Canon G. A. C. 
Grice-Hutchinson 
Sir, In the continuing correspon- 
dence a relevant and often potent 
factor seems to have been over- 
looked. Once the redundancy 
order is formalised there may be a 
long period (amounting in one 
case in this diocese recently to 
several years) during which the 
future use of the building is 
debated. During this period the 
building has to be maintained and 
insured and expenses may be very 
substantial 

This knowledge naturally dis- 
poses. even if subconsciously, the 
minds of those responsible to- 
wards the fiist possible solution, 
which may well be demolition. If 
these costs were able to be 
recouped where delay had been 
caused by objection it is likely that 
a more responsible attitude could 
develop. 

This might be done, for in- 
stance, by the possibility of adding 
such costs to the ultimate valua- 
tion of the building or its ground 
or by malting the objectors, if 
unsuccessful, at least partly 
responsible. 

The knowledge that costs would 
be thus diminished would be very 
likely to lessen the likelihood of 
boards rushing towards the first 
possible solution. Amenity soci- 
eties might not like it, but it is at 
least arguable that their present 
ability to oppose schemes without 
any accompanying responsibility 
has considerable influence in a 
direction opposite to that in- 
tended. 

Yours sincerely,

Security and newspaper freedom The lost chords 


From Mr William Goodhan, QC 
Sir, The Social Democratic 
Lawyers’ Association* of whose 
executive committee I am a 
founder member, is profoundly 
concerned over the decision of the 
Court of Appeal on July 25 to 
confirm the injunction against 
The Guardian and The Observer in 
the Peter Wright memoirs case 
(Law Report, July 26). 

We have no doubt that the 
courts should protect confidential- 
ity between employer and em- 
ployee and, even more, national 
security. But the freedom of the 
Press is a right of fundamental 
importance in a free society. We 
do not believe that confidentiality 
is an adequate ground for restrain- 
ing a newspaper from publishing 
allegations which, if true, show 
that there has been gross miscon- 
duct by members of the Security 
Service. 

It is all very well to say that the 
allegation should be referred to the 
Prime Minister, the DPP, or other 
persons in authority; but it is too 
often true (and Watergate is 
perhaps the prime example) that it 
is only the pressure of public 
opinion which forces a full en- 
quiry into allegations which those 
in authority would prefer to sweep 
under the carpet 
National security is, of course, 
another matter. We wonkl not 
condone publication of informa- 
tion such as the names of current 
members of tbe Security Service, 
which could damage their safety 
and effectiveness. Your report of 
the case indicates, however, that 
Mr Wright’s allegations do not fell 
into this category. 

Sir Robert Armstrong’s affida- 
vit relied on secondary damage to 
national security; he was not 
saying that Mr Wright was reveal- 
ing information which could be of 
use to an unfriendly foreign State. 
He said instead that further 
publication of Mr Wright’s allega- 
tions could lead to a loss of 
confidence in the British Security 
Service on the pan of security 
services of friendly stares and 
other organisations with which the 
Security Service has to deal. But 


Sir Robert would say that, 
wouldn't he? 

It is regrettable that the Court of 
Appeal was not prepared to treat 
this affidavit with a degree of 
scepticism, given that the allega- 
tions in question had already 
received wide publicity. 

No doubt this case will follow 
the other cases, such as the Sunday 
Times thalidomide case and the 
Harriet Harman case, where 
restrictive decisions of tbe English 
courts on press freedom have been 
taken to Strasbourg. We believe 
that this derision, like them, will 
be shown to be contrary to the 
European Convention on Humad 
Rights. 

Does this sorry procession have 
to continue? When will our courts 
recognise — as the American 
courts have long since done — the 
critical importance of freedom of 
the Press and freedom of informa- 
tion? 

Yours faithfully,

Last exit to Clapham 

From Ms Margery Caygill 
Sir, 1 travel daily on the Clapham 
(Junction) omnibus (letters. July 
22, 25) and am happy to report 
that the reasonable man still 
flourishes. Being reasonable, he 
has moved downstairs away from 
the tobacco smoke and now 
includes the female of the species. 

I think the situation was 
summed up about four years ago 
by a conductor from Merton 
gar Rgg A lad with what we then 
called a ghetto blaster at full 
volume went to the upper deck. At 
subsequent stops the conductor 
greeted mounting passengers with 
the statement: “Disco upstairs and 
intellectual conversation 
downstairs". 

Sir, 1 have the honour 10 remain 
your obedient servant,

From Dr T. H. S. Bums 
Sir, Bernard Rose (July 25) draws 
attention to a foiling, in the 
Anglican Church, to appreciate 
the quality and value of the music 
which its organists provide. 

I went to a Friday organ recital 
in St Paul's Cathedral at lunch- 
time on June 20, to hear Jean-Paul 
Irabert, from Paris, play the 
superb instrument I was amazed 
to find that guides continued to 
take tourists round the building 
and the noise of their conversa- 
tion, coupled with all sons of 
other sounds, formed a horrible 
background to the recital. 

I was even more amazed, when I 
mentioned this, in a fetter to 
Christopher Deamley, the cathe- 
dral organist, 10 be told that “it is 
not always easy to get the right 
balance between tbe need to keep 
the cathedral open for visitors and 
at the same lime getting reason- 
able conditions ror the organ 
redial". . 

The organ recitals last just 30 
minutes, and Christopher 
Deamley is Chairman of the 
Friends of Cathedral Music! So 
what hope is there for music in the 
Anglican Church? 

Yours truly,

Bitter fruit 

From Mr James H. Robertson 
Sir. We in North Angus and 
Meanis were delighted on learning 
that our home-grown strawberries 
were to be a part of the royal 
wedding feast 

My delight was considerably 
lessened on reading, in your issue 
following the wedding day. that 
the royal caterers had utilised our 
strawberries to make a Si George's 
Csms. Obviously we should have 
sent blaeberries.

JULY 31 1866 

The underlying cause of the Seven 
Weeks' War was Prussia's 
ambition to dominate the 
Germanic confederation, a concept 
opposed by Austria. Bavaria and 
other states. A dispute over 
Schleswig-Holstein became the 
pretext for the opening of 
hostilities on June IS. On July 3 
Austria was decisively beaten at 
Koniggratz (Sadowai, and an 
armistice declared on July 22; a 
peace treaty was signed in August. 
This article was complemented on 
the same day by one of equal 
length, about 4,000 words, on the 
Prussian army by Our Special 
Correspondent at Ebenthal 


THE AUSTRIAN ARMY 

(From Our Spccui Conejpondem.) 

Presburg, Hungary, July25 
... I must say that odious as are 
the contrivances of many military 
tailors all over the world, nothing 
can compare in ugliness with a 
forage cap worn by the Austrians. 
Those who remember a kind of 
night cap, turned up at the sides, 
with which the Guards at home 
were once afflicted — and may be, 
for all I can remember — can form 
an idea of what this article is by 
realizing an ill-made flabby imita- 
tion of it in blue cloth, with turned 
up flaps at the sides, and put on 
anyhow, for if a soldier can put on 
an article of dress the wrong way be 
will do so. And a prapos of that, I 
may relate a little anecdote of a 
captain of Austrian artillery in 
Italy. His battery was under a 
tremendous fire. At one gun there 
was only one man left to work. The 
captain went and helped him to 
serve the piece, and round alter 
round was discharged, till the 
officer suddenly, in an interval of 
loading, exclaimed. “Schmidt! how 
dare you have your shako on your 
head in a way contrary to 
regulation?" There I leave him and 
return to the Austrian Welsh wig 
with an anathema, for indepen- 
dently of its original sin of ugliness 
is superadded a frightful feature — 
a white bandage of linen round the 
bead and under the turned-up 
flaps, which leaves the top of the 
cap uncovered, so that the wearer 
looks as if he were wounded or just 
out of hospital. 

In spite of this and the gray 
overcoat the soldiers looked well, 
and swarmed in and out of the 
houses in which they were billeted 
in a quiet, contented way, as if they 
were with their quarters. 

Ail the suburbs were filled with 
them, and at every few hundred 
yards small parties of hone and 
foot escorting baggage or wagons, 
or busied about some of the duties 
which keep so many men in an 
army for ever employed in war 
time, came out from or went 
towards Vienna . . . Although I 
have used the word encampment, 
the Austrians carry no tents; when 
they ate not provided with shelter 
in bouses they sleep in their coats 
in fields. Staff officers in gold laced 
cocked hats with large waving 
green plumes, green tunics, gold 
laced and yellow sashes, passed 
along towards the review 
ground . . . About half past eight 
o’clock a pillar of dust which 
spread out over the plain, bore 
rapidly towards us from Unter Laa, 
and in the midst enveloped in an 
escort of generals, aides-de-camp, 
and staff officers, and splendidly 
mounted, rode, erect and well in his 
seat the Emperor Francis Joseph, 
an Imperial Hapsburg in stature, 
face, and bearing. He was dressed 
in a light blue tunic, with gold and 
white and red sash, a gold-laced 
cocked hat with a large waving 
green plume, and cavalry overalls; 
and, although those who know him 
best say he looks altered and is 
shockingly thin and worn, I only 
saw a man, dear-eyed, calm face, 
with a serious expression - an 
English-looking face with heavy 
light moustache and light whiskers 
— with a tall, slight figure, lithe and 
active. With him was his Imperial 
Highness Archduke Albrecht, his 
Imperial Highness (his son) 
Ludvig, the Crown Prince of Sax- 
ony. the Crown Prince of Hanover, 
and the officers in attendance on 
them, wititJheir escorts. It might 
well be called a “brilliant” staff, 
and the effect, as they all galloped 
down the line, the colours lowered, 
the troops saluting, the bands 
playing “God preserve the 
Emperor”, was one of those things 
to be seen and not described . . . 


A first for Britain? 

From the Leader of the London 
Borough of Harrow Council 
Sir, I am very concerned about the 
Government's dilatory altitude in 
its attempt to site the proposed 
European Trade Mark Office in 
London. If we are not to fail badly 
behind in the race to secure 
Britain’s first European Commu- 
nity agency, the Government 
must concentrate its support be- 
hind one London site in order to 
counter stiff European com- 
petition. Britain should not lose 
this opportunity to strengthen its 
role within the Community. 
Yours faithfully. 

DONALD ABBOTT, Leader, 
London Borough of Harrow 
Council.

Time to ponder 

From Mr J. Calvin Evans 
Sir, When I was recently reading 
the fetters page aboard the morn- 
ing train, a gentleman leaned 
forward and said: “You know why 
the Times clock is at 4 JO don't 
you? It’s because it takes until the 
afternoon to read it". 

I concluded that he either 
preferred a newspaper of lesser 
substance or that he was proving 
that tabloid readers can tell the 
time! 

Yours truly, 

J. CALVIN EVANS,

The night sky in August 


By Our Astronomy 
Con-respondent 


■JgnOH 


Mercury is a moming star 
reaching greatest elongation 
(190) on the 1 Ith. when it will 
rise about an hour and a half 
before the Sun. magnitude near 
zero and brightening. 

Venus is a bright evening star 
reaching greatest elongation 
(460) on the 27th. but as it is 
moving south of the equator its 
altitude will be low and it will 
set no more than an hour after 
the Sun. Crescent Moon to the 
north of it on the 9th. 

Mars, now classed as an 
evening star, is observable until 
about midnight It will be 
stationary on the 12th and will 
then resume its easterly motion 
among the stars. Moon near it 
on the 1 6ih. 

Jupiter is a prominent object 
in the south-east and now on 
our map. Magnitude -2.8. Moon 
just east of it on the 21st. 

Saturn is still observable in 
the south-west in the early 
evening. Like Mara it will be 
stationary this month, on the 
7th. Moon not far from it on the 
13th. The rings are well open 
and owners of telescopes should 
lake the opportunity of studying 
them. 

Uranus is yet another planet 
to be stationary. on the 27th. 
Above the horizon until about 
midnight 

Neptune will be setting about 
an hour after Uranus. 

The Moon: new. 5dl9h: first 
quarter. (3d02h; full. 19d(9h: 
last quarter. 27d09h. 

All five of the outer planets 
appear on our map this month. 
For several years now the four 
great planets, which move 
slowly, have been on the same 
side of the Sun and con- 
sequently not very far from each 
other in our sky. Hie faster 
moving Mars has not joined the 
party since July 1984. When it 
arrives again in September 1988 
Jupiter will have become mare 
separated from the others but all 
five will be above the horizon 
together for a short time. 

The Perse id meteor stream 
will be arrive for the first half of 
the month, with maximum 
expected on the night of 12- 
13th. The radiant is between 
Perseus and the top star (on our 
map) of Cassiopeia, and up to 
the 12th the Moon will have set

meteoroids, is not one clump

is spread along the orbtL 

Furthermore, that orbit is 
parallel with that of the Earth, 
but with an opposite direction of 
traveh thus we are passing them 
for several weeks and expect to 
see meteors (shooting stars) of 
this source from July 23 to 
August 20- 

Meteors do not necessarily 
appear at the radiant itself but 
can be quite widely spread: their 
tracks produced backwards lead 
to the radian l There may also 
be an occasional sporadic me-

the radiant and not one of the 
shower. 

As we are meeting the shower 
"head on” we can expect to see 
more meteors if we are at the 
■“■front" of the moving Earth, 
and this means that a watch 
after midnight is likely to be 
more rewarding than before iL

ground" as a meteorite. 

The overall view of the night 
sky is not very different from 
last month. The stars reach the 
same locations two hours ear- 
lier. but this is compensated a 
little by the earlier sunset and 
end of twilight. The main 
changes are that Leo will have 
set and perhaps Spica too: 
Pegasus in the east will be more 
prominent but Hercules will 
remain near zenith. 

The variable star Algol will 
become available again in the 
late evening. Its normal. mag- 
nitude erf - 2.2 will be fading by 
midnight of the 13th arid will 
have dropped to its minimum of 
3.4 at about 22h on the 16th. 

U is a revolvinghinary star of 
unequal components and mini- 
mum occurs when the brighter 
is eclipsed by the fainter. An 
other eclipsing variable star is 
Beta Lyrae. on our map verti- 
cally below Vega. In thiscase the 
variation is continuous over 1 3 
days, so it should be compared 
with its neighbours every night 
for a while, not at specified 
rimes like AlgoL

Mr Gordon Mills: the pp}> 
music manager whose bust' 
ness acumen propelled Tom - 
Jones aiid Engelbert Humper- 
dinck to fame; died in Los 
Angeles on July 29. He was 5 1. 

Like Tom Jones, perhaps 
his greatest promotional suc- 
cess. Mills himself 'came from - 
a Welsh valleys background 
He was born arul brought up 
in the Rhondda, where his 
father was a carpenter. 

Leaving school, at 15' he 
worked first as an apprentice 
motor mechanic, though be 
soon' got the sack. Further 
brief periods as. variously, 
factory worker, miner and bus 
conductor pointed to no obvi- 
ous aptitude for tbe career 
which was- subsequently - to.' 
create fortunes for himself and 
others.' 

Next carne a period m the 
Army which he hated: piit. 
whictu he later confessed, 
taught 'him •‘self-discipline, 
personal hygiene and self- 
respect". - 

Base k in civilian Irfehe went 
to live in London with ideas of 
“doing something” in show 
business. He joined the Mor- 
ion Fraser Harmonica Gang' 
and later formed his own 
group. The Viscounts. 

But these beginnings gave 
no conspicuous impetus to his 
ambitions and he . tried his 
hand at songwriting. Here he 
was more successful, and one 
of- his songs. “I’ll Never Get 
Over You”, became a hii. - 
This put money in his 
pocket for the first time, and 
his search for an mvestnierit 
for it led him- back to home 
territory where he bad been 
told that a group called Tom- 
my Scon and the Senators, 
then playing the Merthyr 
Working Men’s Glib, was 
worth investigating. 

Convinced of Scott’s poten- 
tial. Mills signed him up.' He 
also made him revert to his 
real name, Tom Jones, which 
had homely. Welsh-sounding 
virtues on its side: 

.True. Jones's image, with its 
Presley-derived pelvic antics, 
seemed Tittle demode when 
set against the wilder shores of 
rock-and-rolL then gripping 
teenage audiences.. But Mills 
stuck io -his guns, and by the' 
rime of the smash hit. “The 


Green. Green Grass ' Of 
Home”, had established for 
his man a performing persona 
of wide appeaL * - “ 

/.Mills had himself written/ 
Jones's first hit . “It's Not 
Unusual” •- which gave the 
singer his first real break, in 
1964; v-

When trees suffer from sunburn 


Too much son, a danger 
facing millions of ' holiday- 
makers, is a threat to which 
not only humans are exposed. 

Trees, too, can suffer from 

sunstroke or sunburn. 

These are the findings of Dr 
Yolker Nicolai, of Marbarg 
University, West Germany, 
after an extensive study of the 
structure and function of tree 
bark. 

Having observed that some 
trees in a specific area were 
dying while others thrived, he 
decided to investigate whether 
that bad anything to do with 
the composition and quality of copper beech, 

their bark. Subsequent re- 

search proved that it had.

followed by the formation of 
embolisms^ The tree became 
sunburned. 

As the dry bark cracked,

the tree were interrupted. Be-

In bis sharp commentary 
Pizzey did wdl to pinpoint the 
malaise which resulted: the 
fondness for style, for mas- 
querade, for tango. “When we 
dance tango" a rich hostess 
told Pizzey, before dancing it 
with him, “we forget every- 
thing.** With Perdu, Argentina 
. found its ultimate tango- 
dancer. Its Mind faith in him 
‘ turned Peunrism— ameaning- 
S less political concoction — into 
a bottle of disappearing fade 
which the country used to 
scribble its wildest dreams: to 
be rich, to be powerful, to he 
European. “Things are bad", 
said Pizzey, telling an Ar- 
gentine joke. “Yet we're not as 
badly off as the rest of 
Europe." sV 
At . what then does this 

mercurial, ^passionate race ex- 
cel? “Faflme" replied me of 
Pizzey's victims, unfairly. But 
the programme ended with the 
gloomy prediction of another 
military coup once the demo- 
cratic fantasy had soured. A 
roup more violent even than 
'tiefore. ■:•.• . " n • 

In an uncomfortably sensa- 
tional edition, Where There's 
life (Yorkshire) dealt with the 
possibility of pregnant men. 
Among the studio audience 
was the so-called living proof: 
a New Zealand mother .and 
her daughter who had been 
bom.afier a hysterectomy. 
Taking an important issue, 
Miriam Stoppard reduced its 
implications to the level of a 
chatsfaow, with vox pops from 
the audience as to whether 
they ■ would or wonld not 
condone men having babies. 

“Sore l do, why not?" was 
the answer of an expert on 
whether he thought it a good 
, idea. As to its feasability, “We 
got on the inoon"- We never 
stayed there, however. 

. Nicholas 
Shakespeare 


Almost thirty years ago. Lin- 
coln Center was conceived by 
its philanthropic creators as 
the marble embodiment of 
American cultural maturity. 
In art. as in world affairs, a 
young nation would celebrate 
its coming of age. But one 
component in the complex, 
the hapless Vivian Beaumont 
Theater, has resembled more 
the awkward adolescent than 
the sophisticated adult. Its 
managements have talked 
back to their defers, made 
embarrassing political state- 
ments, consciously offended 
audiences and threatened to 
gut its interior. 

Now. a fifth team bas been 
brought in u> refurbish the 
Beaumont's reputation with- 
out putting a wrecking-ball 
through trie physical plant. 
This team also has a new 
name: it is simply the Lincoln 
Center Theater, promising 
neither rotating repertory nor 
permanent companies, taking 
care not even to allude to 
those notions. Such tact has its 
advantages, and has proved an 
excellent cover for injecting 
wit. whimsy and even neon 
lights into what has been New 
York's theatrical black bole. 

Much of the turmoil and 
disappointment over the last 
two decades can be traced to 
the unrealistic expectations 
which came easily in the 
golden Eisenhower years of 
prosperity and power. Ini- 
tially, the plan was to provide 
splendid new homes for two 
eminent musical institutions. 


New York’s Vivian Beaumont 
Theater, for too long the ugly 
duckling in the cultural pool 
of Lincoln Center, is enjoying 
a run of success at last: 
Saraleigh Carney reports 

Lighting up 
a black hole 


Enthusiastic popular and critical response: Julie Hagerty 
and John Mahoney in The House of Blue Lures 



the Metropolitan Opera and 
the New York Philharmonic. 

But. as a manifestation of 
American greatness, the scope 
of the thing soon swelled to 
include the New Yoric City 
Opera and Ballet, a branch of 
the public library and the 
Juilliard School. Believing 
that there was not a com- 
parable theatrical organiza- 
tion in existence, and with the 
incentive of a S3 million gift 
from the department-store 
heiress Vivian Beaumont Al- 
len. Lincoln Center decided to 


create one of its own. The cost, 
both fiscal and temporal, was 
wildly miscalculated 
The Beaumont's most re- 
cent troubles, including a dis- 
pute between its board of 
directors and its landlord 
Lincoln Center, Inc., devolved 
into a public brawl. It was 
resolved finally by recruiting 
the former New York City 
Mayor John V. Lindsay as 
board chairman, plus new 
board members, and paying 
off the contract of the be- 
leaguered executive director, 
Richmond Crinkley. 


There were a surprising 
number of hopefuls interested 
in the post, given the theatre's 
reputation for humbling those 
who worked in it. and the 
board eventually selected 
Gregory Mosher. As the artis- 
tic director of Chicago's 
Goodman Theater. Mosher 
had been responsible for the 
successful Broadway transfers 
of David Mamet's Pultizer 
Prize-winning Glengarry Glen 
Ross, also directed by Mosher, 
and David Rabe's Hurly-burly . 

Teamed with Mosher is 


Bernard Gersten as executive 
producer, for whom this office 
is a return engagement of 
sorts, as he was the associate 
producer of the New York 
Shakespeare Festival for 19 
vears, including its tenure at 
the Beaumont. Gregarious 
and affable, he is as plain- 
spoken and direct as Mosher is 
considered and cautious. 

A year after their appoint- 
ments, Mosher and Gersten 
have been successful beyond 
anyone's expectation. They 
brought in S.SOO subscribers 


and opened, as promised, an 
initial two-play season in the 
300-seat Mitzi E Newhouse 
Theater. David Mamet's Prai- 
rie de chien and The Shawl. 
which was followed by a 
revival of John Gua re's House 
of Blue Leaves. Earlier this 
year ihe thousand-seat Beau- 
mont. which was to reopen 
next season, first hosted the 


antics of the 


Flying 
:rs, f« 


Kara- 


“juggling and cheap theatrics' 
and popcorn in the lobby. 
Pink and blue neon lights now 
direct audiences to Blue 


Lewes, which moved upstairs 
to enthusiastic critical and 
popular response. 

Asked why he chose the 
Mamet and Guare plays. 
Mosher observed that both 
writers have been important 
pans of his creative life: "it 
just seemed right . . . not 
‘best*, you understand, not 
‘perfect’, and not 'The Ans- 
wer'. It seemed like a good 
beginning." Nor does Mosher 
aspire, as have his prede- 
cessors. to establishing the 
American National Theatre at 
the Beaumont. "If you read 
what all those people did in 
the Federal Theatre of the 
1930s. it's very moving and 
exciting. That's'when you start 
to think maybe there should 
be some son of National 
Theatre, but it wouldn't be a 
beautiful building on the 
South Bank, it wouldn't be 
one company of 200 actors, 
and it wouldn't be one com- 
plex of three theatres." 

Mosher is optimistic about 
this administration's pros- 
pects. “Twenty-five years ago 
this city, and for that matter 
this country, wasn't quite sure 
w-hat the care and feeding of a 
not-for-profit theatre was. 
How much should we copy the 
British theatre, the French, the 
German? Today we have a 
better idea of how these things 
work, and I'm sure that any- 
thing that Bemie and 1 accom- 
plish will be because of being 
able to stand on other peoples' 
shoulders."

My teenage sons never sing 
the songs they listen to. A low 
singalong factor is what I 
chiefly note in the sounds 
issuing from their chosen 
tapes. Perhaps 1 should have 
taken them to Irving Berlin's 
40-year-old marvel, reviewed 
by frving Wardle at its Chich- 
ester revival and now brought 
to town to give London audi- 
ences a dozen catchy tunes 
and lyrics to accompany them 
on the journey through life. 

The book is not likely to 
swell the chests of feminists 
with pride. Girl fells for man 
at first sight. Man ditto for girl 
more cautiously. Girl un- 
wisely beats man at man's 
own game, whereupon one of 
the neater lyrics foretells the 
consequence: “Men don’t buy 
pyjamas for pistol-packing 
mamasT. Girl has to choose 
io-.be second best to win a 
woman's true prize: the love 
of a man who can. fool himself 
he is better than she is. All 
very patriarchal no doubt, but 
in the context of the closing 
moments of the show Annie's 
exaggerated submission 
comes across as a further 
sprightly performance from a 
most appealing heroine. 

Hitherto known as a rock 
star, Suzi Quatro issued her 
first single 14 years ago and 
somehow manages to look no 
older than I S today. Fust seen 
with a troupe of moppets, 
rather too sweetly costumed in 
matching pinks and creams, 
the role requires her to be self- 
confident, naive and gauche. 
This winning combination 
cffeCTivelysugare anything un- 
feminine in the role, and Miss 
Quatro’s own confident sryle 
sweeps the simple plot for- 
ward from song to song and

from one pistol-packing dis- 
play to the next She points the 
wit in the lines and indicates 
rapture in the tongue-in-cheek 
manner required by David 
Gilmore's production. 

If we are totally unmoved 
by her situation — and cannot 
take to heart anything that 
happens — this is because the 
characters are cut out of 
cardboard. They fail to stir up 
even a theatrical passion. That 
said, however, the songs make 
one realize how poverty- 
stricken nearly every contem- 
porary musical has proved to 
be. They are mostly in quick 
tempo, with lyrics that make 
their points in couplets, yet 
Berlin can come up with a 
love-song as wistful as “They 
Say It’s Wonderful” or with 
the detailed visual imagery of 
“The Girl Thai I Many". 

Eric Flynn is tall, hand- 
some. mellow in voice and a 


schoolgirl's dream of glamour. 
There are pretty scenic effects 
and revolves that turn two- 
deck steamer into two-deck 
hotel and railroad train into 
New York ballroom. I should 
have liked a sharper version of 
“Moonshine Lullaby”, sung 
here so dreamily it was not 
until the second verse I re- 
alized the subject was illicit 
liquor. What was needed was 
something like the gentle 
send-up of a male-voice choir 
that backs “My Defences are 
Down”. 

In the idiotic Indian Sea 
ceremony the cavorting 
squaws resemble albino maid- 
ens doing something sexy for a 
tired Pharaoh. Otherwise, the 
show scores for being a cheer- 
ing evening in a tuneless 
world, with peak singalong 
factor.

King’s Lynn Festival 

Bubbling talents 


George Benjamin 
St Nicholas’s Chapel 


The ever-amiable George 
Benjamin was using all his 
hats on Tuesday at the King’s 
Lynn Festival, appearing as 
lecturer, pianist, composer, 
conductor and cinema accom- 
panist. and still coming up 
bubbling. His music has, of 
course, the same engaging 
combination of high energy, 
enthusiasm, clarity of vision 
and innocence, all of which 
are represented in the Three 
Studies he played. 

The first of them is much 
the longest and most wide- 
ranging: a switchback journey, 
as he explained it, for the 
simple basic idea of an iambic 
rhythm. After this came his 
contribution to a musical 
symposium of memorials to 
Haydn, commissioned by the 
BBC, and one which he was 
hesitant to accept, he said, 
Haydn not being one of his 
favourite composers, although 
he liked the sound of the name 
musically transcribed as a G 
major chord with added A. 
This resonates throughout 
what is a study in drifting 
chords. ThefinaJe, “Relativity 
Rags", is altogether more 
snappy playing tricks of 
distortion on a rag of 
Benjamin's own. 

He was a persuasive, bril- 
liantly colourful advocate for 
his own music, although the 
solo piano medium points up 
the echoes of Messiaen much 
more than the orchestra does. 
The first study was virtually a 
rhapsody on disorientated 
Messiaen shapes and textures, 
and the same presence lin- 
gered behind the other two. 


along with the objective stare 
of Schoenberg's “Fatten" in 
the Haydn piece and a dash of 
recent Ligeti in the finale. 

Benjamin's offering as con- 
ductor was the British pre- 
miere of Boulez's Mcmoriale, 
a six-minute piece written last 
year as an epitaph for Law- 
rence Beauregard, flautist of 
the Ensemble fnierContem- 
porain. It thus adds to what is 
already a sizeable repertory of 
tombeaux by Boulez, and 
again is a departure, like 
Riiuel, from his Stravinsky 
memorial, . . . explosame - 
fixe . . . There is the same E 
flat tolling through the struc- 
ture. reached at the end of 
each of the half-dozen sections 
after a delicate cadence for the 
ensemble of solo flute with 
string sextet and two horns. 

The flute plays its melodies 
in song phrases, nervous trills 
and skittish dances, while the 
muted horns discreetly sup- 
port with sustained notes and 
the strings, playing with prac- 
tice mutes to make sounds 
suggesting fingers skimming 
over piano wires, add a finicky 
embellishment. 

In structure and sound the 
piece has, therefore, links with 
Boulez's Messagesquisse for 
septet of cellos, and with the 
music for oboe, electric guitar 
and horn in his Domaines. 
There is the same fine beauty, 
the same entrapment- the 
hopelessness, perhaps, of a 
great artist who finds himself 
here in the role of jeweller. 
Philippa Davies, however, 
showed much more grace than 
despair in her solo playing, 
and the members of Diveni- 
memi responded neatly to 
Benjamin's fluid but precise 
gestures.

At first glance you might think 
that the London Sinfoniena's 
Promenade Concert was a bit 
of a patchwork occasion, mix- 
ing styles as diverse as 
Stravinsky, vintage 1920. and 
Stravinsky, vintage 1960. and 
adding pieces by Dallapiccola, 
Tippett and Henze for good 
measure. But actually there 
was a thread running through 
the brilliantly played pro- 
gramme. and that thread was 
I Laly. 

The connection was slightly 
tenuous perhaps in the case of 
Tippett’s Concerto for Or- 
chestra of 1962-63; after all its 
juxtapositions and super- 
impositions are several stages 
removed from the baroque 
concerto grosso principal, 
though they are very- much on 
the same track. And. even 
after two and a half decades, 
the piece strikes one as a 
curiosity. Every movement is 
left with a loose strand or two 
wafting in the air. and one 
senses the composer's mar- 
ginal discomfort at writing 
what was then experimental 
music without the hook of a 
definitive programme. Never- 
theless there are many ex- 
tremely beautiful things in iL 

Ihe Italian influence upon 
Hans Werner Henze’s Five 
Neapolitan Songs of 1956 is as 
clear from the sumptuous 
textures and lyrical vocal lines 
as it is from the tide. The 
anonymous 17th-century 
words themselves are of the 
kind which say profound 
things because of their naivety 
and modesty, and Henze is 
more than ready to throw in 
the odd folk-like rtiythmic 
osiinato in the bass-line in 
order to heighten the at- 
mosphere of gentle seduction. 


And so to Brisbane . . . and the closing excerpts from

Monday- June 16: Until about ten 
years ago Brisbane was a country 
town and it still retains a strong 
rural fed as farmers with weath- 
ered feces and safari suits drive 
battered jeeps- among the sky- 
scrapers. Ironic to be arriving here 
now with South Africa so much in 
the news — much of Australian 
society bas reminded me of my 
birthplace. and Queensland is the 
most reactionary state of all: there 
are white lines dividing the pave- 
ments and pedestrians are expected 
always to keep to the left of these 
(no one does, of course); P ubl1 ^ 
demonstrations are banned and 
apparently you can be arrested to r 
wanting four abreast; and the 
Premier. Bielke-Peterson, made 
world headlines last . year whra he 
suggested that all gays should be 
placed in camps to prevent the 
spread of AIDS. But, again as in 
South Africa, there is the distract- 
ing. seductive power of sunshine 
it is warm and tropical despite 
being the middle of winter. How 
■ wonderful it is going to be relaxing 
by a poolside between perform- 
ances. 

Tuesday June 17: It must be easier 

entering Soviet Russia than the 

stage door of the Lyric Theatre txt 
ihe new .Arts Complex: it is nm by 

uniformed security men rather 
than the eccentric old stage door 

keepers we all know and love, and 
you have to possess a lass, stpifor 
your key, and are curtly informed 

, that your visitors will not be 
allowed backstage uathout wnium 

ElSf ex- 



Darkie who. wnen i *«..« .. y « 
all right to leave my carj»r.kedjn 
the street outside. says^Noit^ 
mate, we’re trying to dean up tins 
area but there are still blacks 


around. Abbo’s — leave your car 
there if you warn, but by tonight 
it’ll be boomerangaloo!". 

The technical rehearsal is con- 
ducted very casually, everyone 
strolling through ft, in shorts and T- 
shirts. At one point 1 stop to 
complain about the acoustic, which 
is very odd and sounds as if an 
echo-mike has been left on, but the 
resident sound engineer assures me 
it won’t be as bad when the 
audience is in. Apparently while 
this was happening a man with a 
notebook approached one of the 
actors at the back of the stalls to 
offer advice on the matter he said 
he knew the theatre well since he 
was the city's leading critic! 
Flabbergasted that a critic should 
be observing us in this informal 
state, the actor came dashing 
backstage to alert us, the rehearsal 
was quickly stopped again, but the 
man had fled. It is wonderful to 
imagine Biflington or Wardle hang- 
ing round the back stalls in London 
theatres during technical rehearsals 
waiting for the chance to advise 
aernrs on how best to project their 
voices! 

Wednesday June l& First night. 
The packed house is horrendously 
respectful and quiet except for the 
most unexpected noise — a baby 
crying. They bad wanted me that 
this isn't really a theatre city, but a 
babv at first night?.'. Mother and 
child are quickly turfed out and we 
continue in eerie silence. I become 
very depressed, but my dresser 
assures me that all visiting compa- 
nies find Queensland audiences 
very, very odd. At the end I get • 
quite a fright when the audience 
explode to their feet cheering, since 
by then 1 was fully convinced they 
were all asleep, dead, or gone. 

Saturday June 21: Woken by an 


overseas call. It’s Terry Hands 
fRSC Joint Artistic Director]. I 
struggle to collect my thoughts — 
it's rather like the opening scene of 
our production of Moli&rc when 
Bulgakov is woken by Stalin in the 
middle of the night for a conversa- 
tion about Life and Art. Terry 
explains that the RSC has failed to 
get the rights for Arturo Vi — Griff 
Rhys-Jones has secured them for a 
production in Leicester - but they 
are still keen to have Richard III 
return to the Barbican, and he asks 
whether there is any other play I’m 
hankering to do alongside it. I 
promise to let him know early next 
week. 

Sunday June 22 : Our Australian 
producer, Michael Edgley, has 
loaned me his beach house just 
south of Surfers Paradise on the 
Gold Coast The weatherboard 
house is beautiful and restful, 
framed by palm trees and standing 
right on the beach — ft reminds you 
of the kind of place where, in 
Hollywood movies, tortured writ- 
ers come to work their way through 
endless bottles of whisky and 
packets of cigarettes as they sit 
im potently by their typewriters 
staring at the surt I spend a 
wonderful weekend swimming in 
the warm Pacific and walking along 
the endless shore-line, many long 
hours lost in thought, the Walkman 
playing my new Mozart tapes 
which make me sing, smile, cry and 
dance, ieavinga trail of pale broises 
along the wet sand. 

Terry's phone-call has helped me 
crystallize my thoughts about the 
future: there is no way I can play 
Richard on stage again - I have 
done everything I can find to do 
wjih the role and now I am bored 
with_ it. Arturo VPs rise was 
irresistible. * but I am secretly 
relieved it has fallen through - at 



this moment in time I have also 
exhausted my appetite for those 
mammoth, punishing stage roles. A 
film would have been nice, but I 
heard the other day I've also lost 
Prick Up Your Ears — Fred Molina 
is playing the pan. There are clear 
signs that my immediate future lies 
in a different direction - I shall go 
back to England and do the new 
book for Chatto. 

Tuesday Jnne 24: Terry rings and I 
tell him my decision. He listens 
patiently, then says: “Fine, of 
course I understand completely, 
but may I just send you one 
script?". You can only laugh- 

Monday-Saturday Jane 30- July 

5: Determined to enjoy the last 
week, but I'm thoroughly defeated 
by the disappointment of our 
audiences suddenly dropping ter- 
ribly. Before each show I find 
myself peeking through the set in 
disbelief at the sight of the closed 
upper circle, the half-dozen people 
in the dress circle, the rows of 
empty stalls spotted with litue 


clumps of people, every cough and 
shuffle sounding magnified in the 
vast space. Can this really be the 
same show that had people queuing 
overnight at the Barbican? Luckily, 
in the very last few days, there is 
welcome comic relief with the 
unexpected arrival of a Channel 4 
film crew who are making a 
documentary about the RSC. Sud- 
denly there is a camera and 
microphone boom waiting puna 
every comer actors are filmed 
sightseeing on the river, putung 
their smalls into washing ma- 
chines, or. like me. very drunk at 
the farewell party during the 
presentation of our joke awards. 
The Dicks- Down-Under. 

Sunday July 6: Suddenly it’s all 
over, as if without warning - yet 
there were so many times when I 
was counting the days. The sense of 
unreality is increased by the film 
crew accompanying me in the taxi 
to the airport, the cameraman 
•hanging over the front seat saying 
“Now look out of the window, now 
rnmemnlaie Australia" and then 


asking me to board the aircraft 
again and again as they shoot from 
different angles. Wailing for take- 
off. sans film crew at last. I am free 
to “contemplate Australia” prop- 
erly- it is still hard to understand 
why we were not quite the sell-out 
success all had anticipated, except 
in Melbourne. Perhaps therein lies 
the answer. It seems clear to me 
that in Australia there are some 
cities hungry for theatre and others 
indifferent to iu and on that basis it 
was a sad loss not to have played 
Sydney. On the credit side I never 
thought I'd survive three months 
of playing that role without injur- 
ing myself or losing my voice. Yet I 
did. and I'm very proud of that. I 
feel the engines starting up, the 
thrill of going home at last, the 
huge forward, forward thrust of the 
plane down the runway, and then it 
lifts me up and away leaving 
Australia behind for now and 
Richard III behind for ever.

say, in the second poem, “By 
the pool", or the sense of loss 
in the fourth, “I loved a boy 
with all my heart”. 

Stephen Roberts sang the 
work with immense control 
and sensitivity, as he did 
Dallapiccola's Preghiere of 
1962, equally expressive 
though in a way at once more 
refined and more brutal — in 
other words, post-Webemian. 
The message of Murilo 
Mendes's three poems is one 
of hope, protest and ul- 
timately exhortation to end 
the oppression of man. The 
freedom with which Dalla- 
piccola is able to convey his 
own, obviously deep feelings 
is impressive. 

And the Stravinsky? Not 
really so far apart, since the 
Sfonumentum pro Gesualdo 
and the ubiquitous Pulcinetla 
Suite are tributes to and 
reworkings of music by other 
composers, Italian of course.

Jazz 

Loose Tubes 

Elizabeth Hall 

A remarkable tale reached its 
climax on Tuesday when 
Loose Tubes, a much-dis- 
cussed 21 -piece collective of 
young British jazz musicians, 
won a roaring ovation at the 
South Bank Summerscope 
festival. Just over a year ago. 
this extraordinary ensemble 
could be found playing in a 
pub to an audience numbering 
barely more than half the 
band's own strength; the sub- 
sequent crescendo of acclaim 
has injected a virus of enthu- 
siasm into the entire local jazz 
scene. 

Everything they do is fun. 
presented with an absurdist 
humour harking back to the 
loony tunes of the Bonzo Dog 
Band and the sharp parodies 
of the Mothers of Invention. 
There has to be more to it than 
jokes, though, and the secret is 
the real substance behind the 
slapstick facade of a piece like 
John EacotL's “Sunny”, an 
extravaganza of trumpets and 
castanets which might have 
been conceived as the sound- 
track to a remake of Viva 
Zapata. As with the tempera- 
mentally similar cartoons of 
Glen Baxter, the technical 
quality and mastery of idiom 
give the an a lasting life. The 
daft one-liners and the some- 
times hilarious visual pres- 
entation broke the ice, but the 
music itself was what captured 
the hearts. 

Among their extraordinary 
repertoire of hub-cap sym- 
phonies and duck-call con- 
certos. the steam-driven 
warmth of Steve Berry's com- 
positions took the ear on 
Tuesday, particularly a cho- 
rale for brass and woodwind 
and a Latin setting for a duet 
between the saxophones of 
Iain Ballamy and Peter Hun. 
The trumpeter David DeFries 
contributed a new and brassily 
vigorous piece, reminiscent in 
parts of such jazz arrangers of 
the 1950s as Pete Rugolo and 
Johnny Richards. 

The night's outstanding so- 
los came from Ballamy's keen- 
toned alto saxophone on 
Django Bales's “Accepting 
Suites from Strangers” and 
from the guitarist John 
Parricelli. whose gripping 
progress towards ecstacy over 
the sombre chords of Chris 
Batchelor’s “Would 1 Were" 
concluded with the disco very 
of that “long, wheening note" 
of which Captain Beefhean, 
another of the band's spiritual 
ancestors, spoke many years 
ago. This glorious bunch re- 
turn to Ronnie Scott’s Club in 
September before embarking, 
under the aegis of the Contem- 
porary Music Network, on 
their first British tour.

Mercantile House holds 
GLC’s ‘missing millions 9 


Mercantile House, the 
financial services group, is 
bolding on to the £78.7 mil- 
lion cash transferred from the 
Greater London Council 
shortly before it was abolished 
this year. 

The money is on deposit in 
one of Mercantile’s leasing 
subsidiaries pending the out- 
come of the challenge to the 
legality of the transfer being 
mounted by the London 
Residuary Body, the GLCs 
successor. 

On March 26 and 27 this 
year, the GLC transferred 
£78.7 million to a company 
called Salman Developments 
(No 18). A search of the 
companies' register shows that 
Mercantile House is the legal 
owner of this company, 
through a subsidiary called 
Saturn Investments. 

A spokesman for Mer-

that it had set up approxi-

Sir Jack insisted his de-

Sir Jack, who has been

But he had dismal news for

the only consolation was that 
other companies were also

‘Boom in 
profits 
continues 9 

By Richard Thomson 
Banking Correspondent 

The boom in company prof- 
its is still going strong and 
manufacturing output is still 
buoyant despite pessimistic 
official statistics, a leading 
stockbroker said yesterday. 

Phillips & Drew in its 
monthly economic forecast 
argues that the way official 
statistics are calculated has 
distorted a picture of strong 
underlying growth in margins 
and outpuL 

This view contradicts the 
forcasts of several other bro- 
kers last week who were 
downgrading profits predic- 
tions to below 20 per cent for 
this year. Phillips & Drew 
maintained its prediction of 
16-17 per cem for this year 
and 1 1-12 per cent for nexL 
Official figures point to a 4 
per cent decline in profits in 
the first quarter of this year 
but they include a sharp fall in 
stock appreciation which car- 
ries little economic 
significance. 

Phillips & Drew also argues 
that official statistics under- 
state the growth of manufac- 
turing output for about three 
quarters of the manufacturing 
sector. 

Accounting for these fac- 
tors, manufacturing profits in 
the United Kingdom rose by 
more than 25 per cem in the 
second half of last year and the 
first half of this year despite 
apparently weak activity and 
rising wage costs.

in the chairman’s pay over the 
last 10 years. 

“The cost of the increase I 
am proposing can be paid for 
by a mere half per cent 
improvement in productivity. 
If the board cannot do the job 
they should resign and let 
someone else have a go.” 

Mr Percy Levy, a former 
600 Group director, claimed 
that the return on assets and 
sales had been “miserable.” 

But Sir Jack, armed with an 
overwhelming number of prox- 
ies supporting the board, said 
the company had no intention 
of changing the proposed divi- 
dend payout, a move which 
also found favour with the rest 
of the meeting. 


the country aware of the sale. 

A British Gas roadshow, 
backed by a “very large” 
television and newspaper 
advertising campaign, will 
visit 16 locations in Britain to 
publicize the biggest-ever gov- 
ernment sell-off. 

The company will be sold at 
the end of November, in what 
Mr Anthony Alt of NM 
Rothschild, bankers to the 
issue, described as “an accel- 
erating pace of activity”. 

The flotation is the 
Government’s most am- 
bitious privatization scheme 
lo date. It is hoped that a 
record number of investors, 
exceeding the 2.3 million Brit- 
ish Telecom subscribers, will 
be attracted: estimates of the 
proceeds vary between £5 
billion and £9 billion. 

Four investment markets 
are the principal targets. Mr 
Alt stressed the importance of 
creating a “mass retail 
demand” among the British 
public. Market research shows 
that at present only half the 
population is aware of the 
impending sale. 

Other investors will be Brit- 
ish Gas employees, who will 
be able to buy shares at a 


was given as to whether 
British institutions will be 
starved of shares as with 
British Telecom. 

British Gas consumers will 
receive special treatment. One 
application for every metered 
gas supply will be eligible for a 
discount on gas bills, or a 
bonus issue of shares. 

But what exactly is meant 
by “consumer" is still open to 
interpretation. Tenants and 
those who share a communal 
supply are being considered 
for favoured applications. 
This presents administrative 
concerns, which make it diffi- 
cult. according u> Mr Alt, to 
do more than expose the 
problem. 

No details are yet available 
on dealing in the shares or the 
possible involvement of the 
Post Office or British Gas 
showrooms. It will however, 
be quite easy for people to sell. 

An office dealing with pub- 
lic inquiries has been estab- 
lished in Bristol. .All enquirers 
will be sent an information 
pack including a brochure on 
British Gas. a booklet on how 
to buy and sell shares, and an 
application form and 
prospectus.

Lloyds to issue third FRN 


Lloyds Bank yesterday an- 
nounced the issue of undated 
floating rate notes, its third 
since Iasi year when the Bank 
of England agreed to view 
“perpetuals" as primary bank 
capital. 

Lloyds said that the $600 
million issue would be used to 
improve the quality of the 
bank's capital since it would 


enable a similar amount of 43.3 per cem of equity, dose 
dated subordinated loan cap- to the 50 per cem maximum 


ital to be repaid. 

The new issue brings the 
total amount raised by Lloyds 
in undated FRNs to $1.85 
billion. It boosts the bank's 
primary capital ratio to 8.6 
from 7.8 percent. 

It also raises the proportion 
of undated FRN capital to 


laid down by the Bank of 
England. 

Taking advantage of 
favourable market conditions. 
Lloyds is paying 0.1 per cent 
over the London interbank 
offered rate, one of the lowest 
rates paid by a bank raising

By Jndith Huntley 

The Australian 

Government's relaxation of 
its restrictive rules on foreign 
investment, forced on it by the 
dramatic decline in the 
Australian dollar, which 
plummeted to new depths this 
week, removes real and 
psychological barriers to prop- 
'erty development and invest- 
ment in the country. 

Three of Britain’s largest 
properly companies, 
Hammerson. MEPC and Cap- 
ital & Counties, stand to gain 
substantially from moves to 
encourage foreign investors. 
Significant proportions of 
their property portfolios are in 
Australia. 

The Foreign Investment 
Review Board, which vetted, 
all property developments 
from foreign companies, will 
no longer be able to insist that 
at least 50 per cent of the 
interest in a scheme be sold to 
an Australian investor within 
a prescribed time. And the 
spectre of yet tougher regula- 
tions prohibiting the buying of 
property without a 50 per cent 
Australian partner has also 
been banished. 

Mr Keith Douglas-Mann, 
chairman of Jones Lang 
Wootton, the chartered 
surveyor's London partner- 
ship and international 
committee, says; “The revised 
regulations, which reverse the 
previous virtually total ban on 
overseas purchases, are prob- 
ably the most significant 
changes to be announced in 
the Australian market for 
years. Japanese and Hong 
Kong investors are known to 
be looking keenly at the 
market and the way is now 
clear for a revival of activity." 

Mr Ray Moorman, Capital 
& Counties' finance director, 
agrees. The company has 15 
per cent of its portfolio in 
Australia and in the past has 
had to restrict its stake in its 
schemes to about 35 per cent 
“Now we will be able to retain 
100 per cent of our develop- 
ments and sell at our leisure,” 
comments Mr Moorman. 

“We will no longer be in the 
position of having a virtually 
‘forced sale' to an Australian 
investor inflicted on us as was 
previously the case. We have 
kept 100 per cent of two of our 
largest schemes, in the sub- 


■ k pf ■ ,<*~x ^ 





urbs of Sydney, worth about 
£12.5 million each, believing 
that the FIRB would be 
abolished. We can now sell 
when we think market con- 
ditions are right. 

“Hong Kong and Japanese 
money is already in Australia 
and without ihegauntlet of the 
FIRB to run there will be 
substantially more. There is 
little product to buy and the 
market is buoyant in the Large 
cities. Prices will rise and 
yields will fall Prime subur- 
ban office yields are now at 8 
per cent but I think they will 
drop below that," forecasts Mr 
Moorman. 

The new investment guide- 
lines mean that foreign buyers 
will automatically be given 
approval from the FIRB to 
acquire a 50 per cent stake in 
property investments. 

They will be allowed to buy 
the remaining 50 per cent if no 
local buyer can be found or if 
the first half-share could not 
reasonably be bought on its 
own. This is a reversal of the 
present position where foreign 
investors had to demonstrate 
that the purchase was in the 
national interest. 


The Hammerson Group, 
with 20 per cem of its portfolio 


designed to give it a high 
profile locally and enable it to 


profile locally and enable it to 
make useful contacts if 
needed, with potential Austra- 
lian partners. But 
Hammerson's Japanese con- 
tacts could prove very useful 
in a newly active Australian 
market where money from the 
Far East is searching for a 
home. 


j®’ ■. ; ,-f ' COMPANY NEWS 4 ' 


• ATT WOODS: Contracts 
have been exchanged for the 
purchase of JM Roper for £4.2 
million, satisfied by the issue of 
2.63 million new ordinary 
shares. The board explains that 
the mainstream business of 
Roper presents an opportunity 
to expand Attwoods’ activities 
in an area where a trading 
presence was established in 
1985 following the purchase of 
Bam sd ale Bar and Branshaw 
Quarries in Yorkshire. 

• BLUE CIRCLE LTD: The 
company, which is 42 per cent 
owned by Blue Circle Industries, 
has reported for the six months 
lo June 30. 1986 (seven months 
to June 30. 1985). Pretax profit 
R4.16 million (£1.1 million), 
against R5.64 million. Turnover 
R J46 million (RI5I million). 
While no interim dividend is 
being paid, the board will con- 
sider a final, based on the foil 
year’s results, last time, the 
company paid an interim of 11 
cents, but passed the final. 

• COSALT: The company has 
agreed to acquire the outstand- 


ing 26 per cent interest in Cosalt j 
Halson Leisure, which owns the 
Beacon Fell View Caravan Park 
in North Lancashire. The. 
consideration will be satisfied 
by 1 70,000 new ordinary shares, 
valuing the purchase - at 
£175,950. 


Government gives green 
light for unitized sales 


• BERKELEY GROUP: Mr JD 
Farrer, the chairman, reports in 
his annual statement that the 
forward sales position is stron- 
ger than ever, with reservations 
and exchanges at record levels. 
The board remains confident of 
the group's continued expan- 
sion. A one-for-one scrip issue is 
proposed. 


• REXMORE: Year to March 
29. Total dividend lp (same). 
Turnover £31.01 million 
(£29.96 million). Pretax profit 
£604.000 (£513,000). Earnings 
per share 3.09p (0.36p). Turn- 
over for the first quarter of the 
current year is ahead of the same 
period last year and the board 
expects to see an improvement 
in earnings per share, subject to 
little change in interest rates. 


The Government has ac- 
cepted in principle the cre- 
ation of a new investment 
market selling units in single 
commercial properties. 

The Financial Services Bill, 
now at the Committee Stage, 
will be amended to allow for a 
unitized property scheme to 
be marketed both to institu- 
tions and the public 

Lord Lucas, Parliamentary 
Under-Secretary at the 
Department of "Trade and 
Industry, announced the 
Government’s decision to ac- 
cept the principle of unitiza- 
tion as put forward by the 
Royal Institution of Chartered 
Surveyors and others on Mon- 
day in the House of Lords. 

The Government will be 
consulting interested parties 
over the amendment of the 


Bill. The proposal will fall 
outside the definition of 
collective investment 
schemes. A unitized market 
would be regulated under the 
“recognized investment ex- 
change provisions." 

The prospect of fun- 
damental changes in the meth- 
ods of financing and owning 
property opens up new 
possibilities, not least for the 
hard pressed inner cities, 
according to the RICS. 

Deloitte Haskins & Sells, 
the accountant believes that 
further tax incentives will be 
needed to shift investment 
away from the favoured 
South-east of England. The 
firm argues for the designation 
of special zones within cities 
or urban areas. 

Tax relief for investors 
could also be obtained 
through an adaptation of the 
Personal Equity Plans an- 
nounced by the Government 


in the last Budget Deloitte 
suggests that no tax be payable 
on the income from property 
units, making the scheme 
attractive to higher rate 
taxpayers. 

It also raises the question of 
extending the Business Expan- 
sion Scheme to a selected 
range of unitized property 
investments. 

But Deloitte, like the RICS, 
believes in encouraging the 
formation of a single unitized 
market, not a proliferation of 
competing schemes. Bui if 
this new market is to come 
into being there will be stiff 
competition among those 
wishing lo participate in iL 

There has yet to be a 
resolution of the dilemna 
whereby those hoping to gain 
commercial advantage by be- 


ing first or producing a variety 
of vehicles are in danger of 
seeing the market diminish 
because of fragmentation.

Mercantile rise does 
not promise riches 


Lad broke Group Properties, part of the Ladbroke hotels and 
gambling group, has transformed the former Debeuham & 


Freebody departmemt store in London's Wlgmore Street, 
bought for £6.5 million, into a 65,000 sq ft office bonding. 


The refurbishment is thought to have cost £30 millioa. 
Asking rents will be between £25 and £28 a sq ft. 


Mercantile Housers. 44 per 
cent pretax profits increase to 
£75-4 million for the year to 
April 30, does not automati- 
cally augur well for the future. 

The £41.7 million operat- 
ing profit is only a 3 per cent 
increase, h has been swelled 
by wading gains made by 
Mercantile 4 * Alexander Dis- 
count subsidiary, using us 
surplus liquidity, to operate as 
a principal in the gilts market. 

Given the buoyant state of 
the gilts market in the fust 
four months of this year, 
these gains, which Mercantile 
does not disclose, might not 
be repeated. 

Then there is the fact that 
most of the profit increase 
came from related companies 
— up jo £33.7 million from 
1985's £1 1-7 million. ■ 

However, some £31 mil- 
lion of this comes from the 
results of the securities opera- 
tions of Oppenheimer, the 
American investment group, 
of which Mercantile owned 
100 per cent until shortly 
before the end of its tax year. 
It now has only 18 per cent, 
so next year's contribution to 
its profits from this source 


Mercantile^ shares fell Ip 
yesterday to 29 Ip- Some 
brokers are thinking in terms 
of a £65 miliion pretax profit 
next year and earnings per- 
share on an undiluted basis of 
approximately 48p. This 
would pin the company on a 
p/e ratio of around 6, suggest- 
ing that the share price is- 
already discounting a fell in 
earnings. 


VSEL 


What price Britain’s -nuclear 
submarine builder? Dealings. 


begin today iii the shares of 
VSEL, formerly Vickers 
Shipbuilding. The shares, 
originally sold at 100p, are 
being quoted by way of an 
introduction and no new 
money is being raised. . 

As an investment, VSEL 
offers .a renationalization 
gamble with a twist A La- 
bour government might re- 
nationalize; both Labour and 
the Alliance will most cer- 
tainly cancel Trident. The 
former would definitely be 
bad news for shareholders; 
the latter would be quite 
bearable for the company. ' 

VSEL hopes to build ah 
four Trident submarines 
which would bring in £1.6 
biDioii of work over the next 
10 years; An assembly.hall is 
being constructed at a cost of 
£220 million and profits will 
start coming thraughin about 
three years. 

If the contract is cancelled,: 
however, VSEL receives T 25 
per cent of the outturn price^ 
dropping to 100 per cent 
when the second submarine 
is ordered. 

So the Investment in tin; 
facility is covered. 

Almost all the £1.9 bilHon, 
of orders is accounted for by 
work from the Ministry of 
Defence and VSEL is having 
to trim its costs in order to' 
offset the slimmer matins 
now on offer. 

On a pro forma basis 
pretax profits for the year to 
March were £11.9 .million. 
Assuming no mainstream tax 
is payable, a share pride c£ 


should be significantly lower. 
Of course Mercantile does 
have the benefit of $100 
million (£67 million) in cash 
from the sale. 

The share of related profits 
includes a contribution from 
only 29.9 per cent of Laing & 
Cruickshank, now fully- 
owned by Mercantile. This 
should provide between £5

Then there is the big bang 
and the doom and gloom that 
many, including Mr John

man, predict for certain of the

the new measures. That will be 
a welcome relief not only to 
Hammerson but to CapCo

are vulnerable to the swings of 
the currency markets. 

The Australian dollar has 
been felling for some time, 
wiping considerable amounts 
on the asset values of the 
British developers despite 
good performance measured 
in local currency terras. 

Hammerson will be looking

relaxation of the guidelines 
gives it some breathing space 
to do so. Hammerson has a

Moreover, the private client 
business Laing is so prom-

the commissions squeeze that 
the institutional investors 
will apply. This is perhaps 
why Mercantile is building up 
its retail presence and will

Battering for shares with 
South African interests 


Wtift sanctions now a real

setback yesterday.

of an abortive takeover bid 
from Lloyds Bank, was simi- 

• In Che first half of this 
year, pretax profits of 
Gallaher, the tobacco 
group which is a subsidiary of 
American Brands of the 
US, rose by 7 per cent to 
£57.7 million. Turnover 
expanded from £1494 bB- 
Iwn to £1.592 bOlkra.

man, says that the fall

be ■‘satisfactory." In 1985, 
pretax profits totalled £109.7

hopes of another bid. 

Loorho dropped to 2I8p at 
one stage, before recovering to 
223p. a net tall of 5p and the 
De Beers diamond group re- 
treated by 23 cents to 583 
cents. Bine Circle eased 6p to 
575p, but Pilkington gained 
7p to 41 5p. stimulated by the 
chairman's continued op- 
timism at ihe annual meeting. 

Elsewhere the market was in 
good heart, cheered by en- 
couraging reports of progress 
on production quotas at the 
Opec meeting in Geneva, 
which had been adjourned 
until today, with ministers 
still talking. 

The FT 30-share index rose 
by 8.7 points to 1.2803. while 
the broader-based FT-SE 100 
index was 9.9 points higher at 
1.566.3.

fore yesterday as the spot price 
improved to nearly Sli a 
barrel.

BP advanced 9p to 575p. 
white the recently hard-hit 
Britoi! rallied 6p to II Ip. 

Gilts were marked up by 
half-a-point in the wake of Mr 
Paul Volcker's hints of lower 
US interest rates to support 
the ailing bond market, 
additionally helped by a 
firmer pound. 

Stores climbed out of the 
doldrums on cheaper money 
hopes. Wool worth, with its 
annual meeting today, jumped 
25p to 635p, while GUS “A"

figures due in September, 
sprang to life at 122p. up 8p. 
Food retailers made good 
progress behind the lead of 
Dee Corporation, up I2p to 
243p, on further consideration 
of the results. 

Leading shares moved 
ahead from the outset, the 
fresh GUI on Wall Street and 
Tuesday's gloomy investment 
review from the CBI both 
shrugged aside. Glaxo met 
American support at 973p. up 


2 Ip. Gnest Keen & 
Nettlefolds, with its interim 
figures due next Wednesday, 
gained 7p to 342p. British 
Telecom continued to respond 
to the latest opinion poll — 
showing the Government only 
one point behind Labour — 
adding a further 4p to 192p. 

Breweries tended to be held 
back by the Government's 
decision to launch an inquiry 
into the “tied system.” but 
small brewers did well with 
JA Devenish up I3p to 207p. 

Properties were excited by 
fresh action on the takeover 
front, lmry announced an 
approach which may lead to a 
bid and climbed by 50p to 
360p. United ReaL m receipt 
of several approaches, jumped 
40p to S80p on reports of 
imminent developments.

NRDCin 

£7.54m 

surplus 

By Bill Johnstone 
Technology Correspondent 

Both arms of the British 
Technology Group — the Na- 
tional Research Development 
Corporation and the National 
Enterprise Board — yesterday- 
announced profits for the 
financial year ending in 
March. 

The National Research 
Development Corporation de- 
clared a pretax surplus of 
£7.54 million, on an income of 
£1 9.35 million from industrial 
projects and licences. 

The corporation is presently 
engaged in litigation over 
alleged infringement of pat- 
ents and intellectual property 
rights. It has made a provision 
of £1.05 million for these 
imminent expenses. 

Mr Colin Barker, BTG’s 
chairman, said: “it has been a 
year of steady growth and 
progress. Our main thrust is 
still the transfer of technology 
to industry and the provision 
of finance to develop indus- 
trial products and processes. 
We are keen to increase our 
portfolio of academic and 
industrial projects and have 
the financial muscle and in- 
house skills to promote and 
exploit innovation and new 
technology.” 

During the year, 355 
innovations for exploitation 
and development were offered 
to the NRDC but only 188 
were selected for funding, 
bringing the total to 1,912, up 
from 1,863 the previous year. 

A total £4.64 million was 
invested in developing inven- 
tions into commercial prod- 
ucts and another 94 projects 
were initialed by the corpora- 
tion. The joint venture port- 
folio stands at 237. with a net 
book value of £5.31 million. 

The National Enterprise 
Board, announced an operat- 
ing profit of £5.18 million. 
Disposal of 17 former invest- 
ments and loan repayments 
realized £13.1 million. The 
cash balance is £l 1.02 million

COMMENT Kenneth Fleet 


The beerage shines up 
its defensive shield 


With not a little encouragement 
from this column (the news of Sir 
Gordon Borrie's wish to have the 
brewers again referred was broken 
first in The Times), the Director- 
General of Fair Trading has decided 
to ask the Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission to investigate the tied 
public house system, which exists 
only in Britain and is the channel 
through which the major brewers sell 
more than half their beer. 

Sir Gordon is due to bite the bullet 
on Monday. 

There will then be a few days when 
the brewers could make representa- 
tions to the Department of Trade and 
Industry where lies the power to 
cancel the proceedings within a 
fortnight of Sir Gordon acting. If the 
Department did so it would be for the 
first time as far as anybody can 
remember. 

The prospect or another inquiry has 
provoked a pained response from the 
Brewers' Society, which predictably is 
aghast at another MMC inquiry as the 
previous one was as “recent" as 1969. 
Predictably, the Society is inveighing 
against the reference as totally un- 
necessary and wasteful and claiming 
that Britain's pubs have a wider 
choice of beers and other drinks than 
anywhere else in the world. But it is 
precisely the lack of choice compared 
with what it might be which has 
caught Sir Gordon's attention, to- 
gether with the brewers' ability to lead 
up prices regularly each year through 
their managed houses. 

The brewers’ power is not quite 
what it was. In 1967 they accounted 
through the tied system for 78 per cent 
of on-licence outlets, which are 
mainly pubs but this is now down to 
59 per cent, as the Brewers' Society 
has been swift to point out. But having 
an armlock on well over half the 
country's pubs is still a lot of muscle. 

Seventeen years ago the MMC, 
while finding against the tied house 
system, failed entirely to recommend 
its abolition because it had not the wit 
to decide what might be put in its 
place. Should the findings be the same 
again, it is unlikely the Commission 
would suffer from the same lack of 
imagination. 

Furthermore, should the complex- 
ion of the Government have changed 
during the two years the inquiry is 
expected to take, the political re- 
sponse to a recommendation to end 


the tic would be rapturously positive. 
The other tie the brewers have is with 
the Conservative Party. 

This Is not the least, though not 
perhaps the most, difficult problem 
Sir Gordon poses for the present 
Government. The critical power of 
decision rests with the Department of 
Trade and Industry where presides a 
Guinness in the normally emollient 
and slightly flushed form of Paul 
Channon. He may within 14 days 
cancel proceedings under the Fair 
Trading Acl As Guinness, along with 
Bulmers and exporters of beer to this 
country, are the principal slaves of the 
tied estate and thus potentially the 
main beneficiaries if the tie were 
broken, he may have to opt out of the 
decision-making. 

None the less, it is still a ticklish one 
for a Tory Government, which can 
normally rely on substantial support 
from the beerage. Only deep in the 
cups of electoral pessimism would 
they console themselves with the 
thought that the responsibility for 
implementing a hostile MMC report 
might not be theirs. 

Although the brewers and Brewers’ 
Society, again ironically, with a 
Guinness (Edward) at its head, seem 
monolithic in their opposition to an 
MMC investigation, appearances may 
be deceptive. Scottish & Newcastle for 
one, which sells only 20 per cent of its 
beer through tied houses, might have 
a different perspective. This could 
conceivably change if S&N were to 
acquire Courage from Hanson Trust; 
but if as in the United States and 
elsewhere, brewers were confined to 
brewing and wholesaling, the leaner, 
fitter and paler of countenance might 
stand a better chance. The smaller 
brewers also seem to hanker after a 
freer system, though major regional 
brewers might find the going harder, 
despite the antagonism felt by some 
against the high price regime the big 
brewers have succeeded in maintain- 
ing. The debate about consumer 
choice would hot up at this point. 

The main beneficiaries from 
abolishing the tied estate should be 
the independent brewers, like 
Guinness, and Scotch and gin distill- 
ers; cider and soft drink makers; and 
major exporters to the British market 
like Anheuser-Busch. But the question 
"what would the brewers do with their 
tied houses?” might have a highly 
lucrative answer. 


Riddle of US trade figures 


Currency dealers are continually 
looking for forthcoming economic 
announcements against which to buy 
or sell currencies. During the dollar’s 
climb, the weekly US money supply 
figures were regarded as vital market 
signals. This week, the dollar was sold 
in front of yesterday’s trade figures. 

The trouble is that, when the figures 
come, they are often hard to interpret. 
In the absence of in-depth economic 
analysis, dealers* general practice is 
simply to compare the actual figures 
with the average of the numerous 
brokers' forecasts that are to be had in 
London or on Wall Street But even 
this does not always suffice. 

Yesterday's trade figures provided 
another puzzle. The June trade deficit, 
at S14.17 billion, was just above the 
forecast range of $12 billion to $14 
billion and showed no significant 
improvement on the $14.21 billion 


revealed a month ago for May. The 
trouble was that the May figure was 
revised down significantly to $13.12 
billion yesterday. 

What could this mean? Was the 
trend even worse, or the May figures 
more hopeful for the dollar than 
originally thought? And since Ameri- 
can statistics are routinely revised by 
more than the odd percentage point, 
might this not happen to the June 
figure? 

The market was clearly non- 
plussed. First, the dollar lost a pfennig 
against the mark, then it recovered, 
ostensibly on reassuring noises from 
Mr Paul Volcker. The lack of overall 
movement is probably slightly bearish 
for the dollar, since speculators who 
had sold the American currency short, 
in anticipation, either saw no need to 
unwind their positions or had no 
difficulty doing so.

THE 



TIMES 


GENERAL APPOINTMENTS 




*? 


M anagement educa- 
tion is well and 
truly under the mi- 
croscope at the mo- 
ment. Several 
important reports either have 
been published recently or are 
currently under way. It may soon 
be on the operating table. As I see 
it, the situation regarding manage- 
ment education is rather similar to 
that for which the Review of 
Vocational Qualifications Work- 
ing Group, which reported to the 
Department of Education and the 
Manpower Services Commission 
in May, was invented to provide a 
solution in the vocational ansa. 

In other words, there is a 
considerable array of provision, 
but it is ill-oiganized, and there is 
much overlapping and no dear 
sense of direction. 

Speaking for my profession, the 
chartered secretaries, we would 
doubt the need for additional 
provision. What is required is the 
better organization of what we 
have. Having said that, we think 
there is advantage in multiplicity 
of provision in very different 
forms. A iota] transfer to a 
privatized sector might well mean 
that courses would be arranged 
mainly to suit tbe needs of 
individual large-scale businesses 
and the result would be more 
training than education. 

One must also consider the 
different levels of management 
education. There is a need for 
qualitative as well as quantitative 
assessment We can well see a 
place for the Diploma of Manage- 


ment Studies and, indeed, differ- 
ent forms of it provided in 
different colleges, but it is by no 
means the total answer. 

Indeed, we think that one of the 
fundamental problems is not so 
much the provision of manage- 
ment education as the general 
level of education of those who 
have in recent years gone into the 
commercial/industrzal sectors. 
Much depends on the level al- 
ready available for tbe superimpo- 
sition of management education 
post-experience. 

We also think that too many are 
going into management education 
with an experience in 

business hoping that in some 
miraculous way management edu- 
cation wilt transform them into 
general managers as a result of a 
single coarse. 

Equally, there are many large 
businesses where what is not 
required is a very broad Master of 
Business Administration ap- 
proach. Tbe need is for something 
much more specific and con- 
cerned with the development of a 
well established and organized 
business rather than what is 
required if major radical changes 
are to be introduced. 

Our experience is that many 
MBA courses — and, to some 
extent, DMS courses — spend a 
good deal of time with relatively 
elementary business studies edu- 
cation which ought to have been 
done at a much earlier stage 
through qualifications such as our 
own. No doubt this is necesaxy to 
bring the managers attending the 
course to a similar level before* 


Success today will 


depend on getting 


our management 
education in all its! 


aspects organized. 


says Barry Barker 




starting on what the course 1ms to 
offer. 

We fed that what is perhaps 
lacking more than anything is the 
basic education in business studies 
which could well be taken on 
board at an early stage partly 
through tiie school and university 
system, but just as well in the early 
years of work in commerce and 
industry. 

This does not mean anything 
tike the narrow skills base of the 
BTEC (Business and Technician 
Education Council) type of quali- 
fication. It is concerned with 
providing a knowledge base on 
which much more can be tnuh 
from the experience itself of 
management and then post-expe- 
rience management courses. 

Whether this is to be provided 
in the public or private sector does 
not seem to us to be a particularly 
important point Both will be 
needed and some competition is 
not a bad thing. What is required 
is that the Dep ar t m e n t of Educa- 


tion, the Manpower Services 
Commission and anyone else 
the provision should 


a suitable matrix, of provi- 

icafly and uftenns of vtlume^k” 
In the BTEC-type course there 
is probably an over-emphasis on 
sfdlls and employer lead, and at 
the university level there is per- 
haps a similar nni wiau plmh OQ 
the academic as opposed to the 
practical, and the involvement of 
employers is a good deal less. The 
system is all there; what is 
required is someone to organize 
and lead it 

S kills of analysis and communi- 


cation take many years to develop 
' e whole 


and are a part of the 
education system. They are not 
skills which can be imparted in 
very short management or, in- 
deed, other courses. On the other 
hand, management skills and 
techniques can and should be 
taught at a quite early stage. 

Beyond that, one is dependent 


already acquired, 
management education can to 
some extent create a hothouse in 
which the relevant experience can 
a rtificiall y be induced or simulat- 
ed, and the provision can be more 
systematic and orderly than is 
likely if tbe individual is left to foe 
normal coarse of a career in 
commerce and industry. 

It is one of the weaknesses of 
most professional bodies that they 
tend to equip an individual for his 
or her profession, but do not turn 
professionals into managers. 

What has happened in local 
government is an obvious exam- 
ple. Attempts to identify, as it 
were, tbe “management" dimen- 
sion in a professional coarse as if it 
can be separated out and ’‘taught** 
generally seems to fell and many 
are still searching for ways m 
which to convert the relatively 
nar rowly trained and educa t ed 
“professionals** into “managers”. 
What the professional bodies can 
and should do is to ensure that the 
tools techniques of manage- 
ment, quite apart from, and in 
addition to, the professional work, 
would be part of their courses. In 
our institute we have made a point 
of that for some years and lave 
acce n t u ated tbe emphasis since 
the information technology 
revolution. 

With the best will in the world, 
it is difficult to gauge employers’ 
needs and we were impressed with 
the remark of the Standing Con- 
ference of Employers of Graduates 
in a recent report “There will 


never be a united front on 
employers* needs (except on such 
issues as transferable personal 
skills) because there is a wide 
range of interests and needs. The 
message is likely always to be 
fragmented.” It must follow tig 
course provision must also be 
diverse. ’ ■ _ . 

We believe that the woods of 
aradfiwe, vocational e ducat ion 
and training and management 
education need to be brought 
doser together and that institu- 
tions should not be created which ' 
will have the effect of isolating any. 
one of them.

W e now sense a 
change in attitude; 
not only at the 
council for Nation-' 
al Acad emic 
Awards, but also at the university 
level generally. .That is to .be 
wholeheartedly welcome and we* 
make no reference to the circum- 
stances which have brought those 
changes about. . ■ 

Equally, our experience is that 
employers are becoming more 
wining to accept the priorities of 
public sector management educa- 
tion and not to put quite such a 
heavy emphasis on taking the 
generally educated . . and 
endeavouring to do the training 
for themselves and for their own 
purposes- ' 

In the Hinrate, it is encouraging 
that die provision of management 
education « being studied serious- - 
ly. We are aware of no less than 
eight studies of management edu- 
cation-related matters now lairing

It is not supnsmg, given the unpredict- 
able nature of our economy, that even 
linns which arc doing well are reluctant 
to tem pi providence and add to their 
permanent staff — a fact which roust 
have some bearing on the continuing 
high levels of unemployment. 

instead the solution to which a 
growing number of employers - espe- 
cially medium-sized and smaller ones - 
are turning is to take temporaries. This 
no longer applies solely to secretarial and 
eternal jobs with which temping is 
traditionally associated. 

Ai recent sunrey of 450 firms undertak- 
en by the Institute of Manpower Studies 
show that around half were using some 
temporary staff at all levels - either to 
cope with workload fluctuations or to 
avoid recruiting permanent employees. 
Companies are also turning to 
temporaries in high skill specialist fields 
where it is difficult to recruit staff 
without offering salaries that throw the 
whole pay structure out of gear. 

Manpower, the employment agency 
which commissioned the IMS survey, 
has long specialized in this sector of the 
market. They found that a poster 
campaign last year, featuring a bowler- 
hatted model in the image of a middle 
manager created the wrong impression. 
-We don't have much demand from 

A growing need for computer 
experts and accountants 

clients for temporary appointments in 
general management," says Fergal 
O'Brien who runs the Netting Hill office. 

-However, there's a large and growing 
requirement for temporary hdp on the 
accountancy, computing and technical 
side and also in areas where firms have 
to take on specialists to cope with sudden 
surges of work. Designers to help out in 
the drawing office if a big contract comes 
along are a case in point. “ 

His view of the growth potential in 
new kinds of temporary work is shared 
by Michael Crosswell, managing director 
or the fast-expanding Blue Arrow per- 
sonnel services group. They now own 
Brook Street Bureau and have just 
acquired the head hunting and executive 
selection agency Hogget Bowers. 

One reason for that move was to get a 
foothold in the executive employment 
market Some people regard it as an 
overcrowded field, but he thinks it is one 
where new and different recruitment 
opportunities are beginning to emerge. 
-Firms are having to pay huge salaries 
for those with special qualifications. The 
problem is that there may not be a 
continuing demand for those particular 
skills within the same organization. That 
can leave high flyers in a dead end job - 
or out in the street when they're no * 
longer needed." 

He foresees: a future where executives 
are taken on for specific tasks, sub- 
contracting their services for a fixed 
period of 2-3 years. "It's really an aspect, 
of self-employment," he says. “There are- 
2.5 million self-employed people in this 


An increasing number of 
employers are turning to 
highly skilled specialist 
temporaries rather than 
offering fall-time work. 
Godfrey Golzen looks 
at the potential of this 
newly emerging market 

country. Not all of them want to run 
businesses of their own. or have the 
resources to do so, but an awfol lot have 
highly marketable expertise. One of the 
jobs of recruitment consultancies will be 
to bring such people together with clients 
who have a need for what they have to 
offer, but who might not want to tie 
themselves down to a long term 
commitment. " 

Mr Crosswell admits that supplying 
executive temporaries is still a very small 
pan of Blue Arrow's activities. “We 
supply about 250 such people a week, 
which is about 2.S per cent of our total 
placement. Mostly the demand is for 
temporary accountants and technical 
people, but we're also now getting asked 
for executives with specific bits of 
expertise in management disciplines like 
marketing and R & D.” 

Typical assignments last for anything 
between four weeks and six months and 
pay at this level is around £25-£30 an 
hour. The rate is negotiated by Blue 
Arrow, and the temporaries on their 
books are technically their employees. 
That means they get holiday pay and 
statutory benefits but it also means that 
they are taxed on PAYE, though in many 
respects their position is much closer to 
that of self-employed sub-contractors- 
Mr Crosswell believes that is an 
anomaly which ought to be 1 corrected 
by legislation. 

“The official designation of self- 
employment is much too rigidly attached 
to carrying on trades or professions. The 
signs are that the security of employed 
status - and the tax free fringe benefits 
that go with it — will increasingly attach 
only to a core of permanent employees. 
In my view that ought to be recognized 
in extending the tax concessions avail- 
able to Schedule D payers to all kinds of 
outworkers, rather than trying to limit 
them as is happening at the moment." 

Nevertheless, one of the happy results 
of temporary executive assignments is 
that they frequently result in the person 
concerned being offered a permanent 
job. la that case Blue Arrow charge the 
client a fee related to salary. Like many 
supporters of temporary employment, 
Mr Crosswell believes that it has a 
further function as a way of trying out a 
potential employee without any commit- 
ment on either side. 


“It establishes whether you can work 
with someone, whether they're any good 
at the job — and even whether there's a 
real need for it to be filled in the longer 
term. Those are the kind of things that 
often just don't come out. even in a 
skilfully conducted interview." 

The built-in potential for full-time 
employment was also a factor that 
attracted the Institute of Directors into 
setting up their Pan-Time Executive 
Appointments Bureau a year ago. Unlike 
many of their other services it is 
available to non-member companies and 
individuals. They work rather like their 
commercial competitors. Individuals 
who write in to them are interviewed and 
given a questionnaire to fill out which 
indicates their qualifications, age, skills, 
experience and degree of availability. 

When an enquiry comes in from a 
diem, the Bureau establishes the job 
specification and then makes a search , 
from the 400 or so names on their j 
register. The client then gets a short list 
of individuals from which to make the > 
selection. In this case, however, the 
temporary appointee is employed by the 
client and has to make his or her own ar- 
rangements about remuneration - 
though guidance is available to both 
parties on this point by the IOD's 
director of specialist company services. 

Short-term assignments can 
often lead to a firm offer 


Kenneth Lindon-Travers. 

“We arrange about 60-70 such ap- 
pointments a year, mostly in smaller 
firms for periods of a few days to several 
months. The people we place are mostly 
in the 40-65 age group. Salaries are at the 
annual equivalent of £20, 000-£4 5.000." 
If a permanent position is eventually 
offered to a temporary employee, the 
Institute charges the client company a* I 
flat fee of £1,000. 

Another of the attractions of tempo- 
rary executive appointments from the 
employer's point of view is that experi- 
enced people are able to pick up the 
threads of a job quickly, without a long 
and costly induction period. “The 
demand often arises out of an urgent 
need for someone who can ‘start work on 
Monday' because an incumbent has 
dropped out suddenly for whatever 
reason.'' says Mr Undon-Travers. 

Mr Crosswell, however, believes that 
employers tend to under-rate the impor- 
tance of briefing temporary workers. 
“There's often an assumption that 
because someone is temporary, they're 
not going to need any training But they 
still need to be briefed. When things go 
wrong it's nearly always because the brief 
was inadequate or because too much ; 
knowledge was taken for granted. Even a 
self-starter has to know where to insert 
the key that sets the motor going." If he 
and other human resources experts are > 
right in seeing a boom in temporary work 
on the way, then managers are going to 
need to be trained to use it effectively.

Joseph Jecote in the third n Jt h( ra 


round of their lightweight 
bout and in the super-heavy- 
weights, Lennox Lewis 
knocked out James Oyebola in 
the second. However, James 
Moran, the ABA champion, 
saved the day for England by 
unanimously outpointing 
Brent Kosolofski. 

Dar, the exciting, young. 
Pakistani-born boxer who is 
wanted by Mike Jones, Gerry 
Cooney's manager, showed 
exactly why he is so much in 
demand He was altogether 
too good for Jacobs. Dar grew 
in confidence with every 
whiplash hook to the body, 
dropping the Englishman to 
the floor in the second with a 
right cross. By the third, he 
was beating Jacobs while eas- 
ing up, the referee stepping in 
as yet another looping left to 
the body had Jacobs wincing 
and reeling. 

Dar's opponent in the final 
will be Neil Haddock of 
Wales, who was an easy points 
winner over Byton Mphande 
of Malawi. The African did all 
the chasing but hardly landed 
a blow worth noting and . 
merely succeeded in 


floundering to the canvas and 
was unable to continue. 

Moran’s light-heavyweight 
bout with Kosolofski was 
barely more edifying as the 
Canadian, all muscle and 
menace, rarely launched him- 
self into the attack. Moran 
caught the judges' eyes by 
cleaner punching when he did 
manage to catch the 
Canadian. 

Earlier, Mark Epton, the 
light-flyweight, put England 
on the right road to the semi- 
finals when he stopped Wilson 
Docherty of Scotland in the 
second round. Epton set on 
against the Scot from the first 
bell, forcing Docherty to take 
two counts, and he did not 
stop his assault until the 
referee stepped in. 

’ Sean Murphy, the ABA 
bantamweight champion, be- 
came yet another English 
boxer to go through to the 
finals when he beat Glen 
Brooks of Scotland on points. 
Brooks fought back gamely in 
the third round, catching Mur- 
phy with a good right, but the 
Englishman's right hand grad- 
ually wore the Scot down.

Scottish fling: Middlemiss en route to reaching the last eight (Photograph: Ian Stewart) 

Middlemiss is bright spark 


Guinness rides punches 


Like Daley Thompson, the 
Commonwealth Games boxers 
became Guinlcss on Tuesday 
night. Under orders from the 
Games federation, they went 
into the ring with rape blacking 
out the logo on their vests. 

Frank Hendry, the director of 
boxing, said: “We had a direc- 
tive from the Games Organizing 
Committee, apparently because 
Guinness are sponsors of the 
athletics, not the other sports.” 


Success a 
tonic for 
world bid 


While the brewing giants 
kicked up a tremendous fuss 
when Thompson inked out their 
name on his athletics vest, they 
were totally unconcerned this 
time. They are revdling in the 
free advertising, estimated to be 
worth several hundred thousand 
pounds, and the latest episode is 
sure to generate more welcome 
publicity. 

But a Guinness spokesman, 
said: ”11 does seem that the 
federation are nitpicking.”

described in the programme as 
“undent and primitive manhood 
tests” was the pulling of a heavy 
lorry “in two different styles”.

“Ach non, all this frivolity is

21 caber tossing champion. He 
maintained that the cabers 
looked snspicioasty tighter than

The track-pulHng achieve- 
ment made a considerable im- 
pact though on the Maori 
dancers from the tiny Cook 
Island, a New Zealand depen- 
dency. “I am shivering, oh boy, 
we are shaking, ' Mrs 
Ynpohoyna Tarraro confided

To the Commonwealth out-

ranch of the genuine sporting 
activity was also a paste. There 
were these fellows swfesgfes 
heavy weights between their 
ippe, a peculiarly hazardous 
riling in view of what foreigners 
understand is, or is not, worn 
under their Idlts. There were 
these huge brates lifting massive

But Scottish hopes of hav-

Olympic final missed out on: 
the final qualifying place by

COMMONWEALTH GAMES RESULTS 


By JiraRaflton 




England's suc- 
cesses in the 
Commonwealth 
Games regatta 
have given the 
team a boost for 
their most grad- 
ling test of the season, the World 
Championships in Nottingham 
in three weeks' time. They have 
much to reflect on, also. Steven 
Redgrave; a modest man as weU 
as a fierce warrior, will go down 
in sporting history as the first 
oarsman and scalier to win three 
gold medals in a rowing 
championship. This is a feat 
only achievable in the Common- 
wealth regatta with two final 
days three days apart. Nobody 
in their right minds would 
attempt it in the World 
Championships' one-day finals. 
But. nevertheless, one has to 
admire Redgrave's feat. 

Great Britain has an 
embarrassment of riches at the 
Cop. Olympic and Common- 
wealth gold medal winners 
Redgrave and Andrew Holmes 
together with coxswain Adrian 
Ellison will compete in the coxed 
pair, in the World Champion- 
ships as Britain's flagship. Al- 
ready they wear the heavy 
man tle as favourites having 
beaten the Italian World and 
Olympic gold medal winners 
twice this season and setting a 
new record on Lucerne's Rotsee 
course. 

The other two of the Common- 
wealth gold medal coxed fonr, 
Adam Clift and Martin Cross, 
compete in the World 
Championships, and as # 
coxless pair. They came within 
gOOths of a second of winning 
the World title last year and 
were victorious in Lncerne- 

Many of the British team wfl. 
be off to Amsterdam tomorrow 
to bnOd up for the World 
Championships by way of a 
training camp the ‘staJag*. The 
British eight will have their 
thinking caps on already after 
their silver 

medaL They have been beaten 
now by Australia Price while 
New In Satur day s 

finals OU foe outside hue, were_ 
beaten by the weather rather 
than manpower. Britain's eight 
know they have to find more 

speed in the first half of the race 
without sacrificing their exem- 
plary finishing speed. 


‘Velodrome 
needs roof 

George Miller, the president 
of the Scottish cycling muon, 
warned yesterday that the ram- 
soaked velodrome fares certain 
rain unless a roof is erected 
immediately. He said that the 
£400.000 it cost to hufld the 

wooden track vronld be a wasted 

investment otherwise. 

Daring less foan 15 minutes ©f 
cycling. Edward Alexander, ©f 
Scotland, and Alex Ongaro, of 
Canada, each won a race in their 
best-of-three sprint semi-final, 
while Paul McHugh, of En- 
gland, was knocked out

Sturgess bows 
gladly to 
his track hero 

Coliii Sturgess fingered the 
silver medal hanging around his 
neck and said without a trace of 
disappointment: ”1 am ab- 
solutely thrilled." The fact that 
he had been beaten to the gold 
by Dean Woods, of Australia, in 
the final of ihe t 4,000 metres 
individual pursuit was no dis- 
grace. and Sturgess. at 17, was 
wise enough to lotow it 

The Leicester student hero- 
worships Woods to such an 
extent that he has a poster of the 
20-year-old Commonwealth 
Games champion on his bed- 
room wall. 

The youngster's performance 
- which included a British 
record of 4 minutes 51-23 
seconds in qualifying — fully 
justified foe faith shown in him 
by the England selectors. 

Only disappointed man. 
ironically, was Woods, who felt 
he would have beaten his own 
Games' record but fora mix-up. 
The double junior work! pursuit 
title-holder overhauled Sturgess 
with eight of foe scheduled 16 
laps to go, thus winning the 
contest. Officials decided he 
should be allowed to race on but 
Woods thought they were 
signalling him 10 Stop. 

“1 was on target for 4 minutes 
37 seconds." said the Austra- 
lian, who in qualifying had 
docked 4:43.92 to better an! 
eighl-ycar-old Games record by 
more* than five and a half 
seconds. 


last Commonwealth 
Bui when he looked at his 
category, beaded by -N 
Loban, the. England .Olympic 
bronze medallist, he felt that his 
chances of success, despite there 
just being six entries, were slim. 

Apart from Loban. there was. 
Doug Cox, five-times Can a dian 
national champion. Grant Bark- 
er from New Zealand and Alan 
Thompson from Australia, allot 
whom would have have given 
Weir a good ran for bis money. 

In casting around for a solu- 
tion, he came to foe conclusion 
that his prospects fora medal in 
the 100kg category were better, 
despite foe . weight difference 
wh£ch. against an opponent of 
equal skill, would normally be 
decisive. The trouble was that 
his natural weight was a kilo or 
so under the 90kg limit, and to 

make the- i 00 kg category, he had 

to push foe scales over 90kg. 
Having pondered over the prob- 
lem at the weekend, he decided; 
on Monday to go on a two-day 
eatipg binge. Cream cakes,j 
greasy ' chips, carbohydrates, 
sugars and fats by the bucket 
load, washed down with gallons 
of liquid. And he made it — 
feeling a little bloated. 

Imagine, then, his dismay 

when foe draw placed him in the - 

first round against Clark Davis, 
the Canadian champion who 
has twice been world-, silver 
medallist, and who is probably 
the most certain individual in 
the whole wrestling competition 
to take foe gold medaL 

To compound Weir's woe, an 
injury to Graham F . n gl tsh , of 
Scotland, from the 90kg at foe 
last-minute; would have again 
placed Weir's medal chances 
atbetier than fair. .

Doable Schwartz, a leading 
contender Tor the title of sprint 
champion, can uphold Royal 
Ascot form by beating 
Gwydion in a fascinating Kjng 
George Stakes, one of three 
pattern, races on an outstand- 
ing programme at Goodwood 
this afternoon. 

With Dublin Lad and Rich- 
ard Whitaker's pair. Orient 
and Clannme. in the Held, this 
five-furlong dash is sun: to be 
run at a oreath taking pace 
from start to finish and Dou- 
ble Schwartz may be among 
those taken off his feet in the 
early stages. 

It should be remembered, 
though, that this trio have 
done the majority of their 
racing in handicap company 
whereas Double Schwartz's 
form this season has been in 
oup races at Newmarket, 
ndown and Ascov 
When failing by the narrow- 
est of margins to overhaul 
Last Tycoon in the group one 
King's Stand Stakes at the 
royal meeting. Double 
Schwartz had Gwydion 2% 
lengths back in third and I see 
no reason for her to avenge 
that defeat today. 

Henry Cecil's filly has since 
run wejl to be third to Green 
Desert in the July Cup and 
then gamed her first success of 
the season in the Hackwood 
Stakes at Newbury - form 
which suggests she may be 
slightly better over six fur- 
longs ib an the minimum trip. 

Pnnra Sabo chased home 
his stable companion, Primo 
Dominie, in this race 12 
months ago but finished a long 
way behind Double Schwartz 
at Newmarket on 2,000 Guin- 
eas day and' has not run since. 

The majority of the others 
have been beaten by my nap at 
some stage this season and if 
there is .to be a surprise it is 
most likely to come from the 
French raider, Rose Of The 
Sea. who finished third in the 
Cheveley Park Stakes last 
autumn and led the LOCO 
Guineas field for five furlongs 
when returning to Newmarket 
in the spring. However, she 
was only third to Last Tycoon 
at Chantilly on her latest run 
and on a line through that 
winner, she has some to find 
with Double Schwartz. .. . 

The meeting bf LongBaii* 
and Valuable - Witness, the 


best two stavers in training, 
should make the Goodwood 
Cup the best race of its kind 
for some lime. 

Valuable Witness has not 
been beaten for 21 months 
and no store should be put by 
the fact that Jeremy Tree’s 
grand servant has not raced 
since April as he runs well 
when fresh- 

Nonetheless, the ground, 
which is officially good to firm 
on the round course, will 
favour Longboat and Dick 
Hem’s Ascot Gold Cup win- 
ner has the stamina and 
courage to make the most of 
this advantage. 

Siavordale and Tale Quale, 
who finished last and last but 
one behind Rakaposhi King at 
Lingficld last time out, would 
have to show staggering 
improvement to trouble the 
principals and Spicy Story is 
preferred to the handicap 
winner, Petrizzo. for minor 
honours. 

. The Queen has an outstand- 
ing prospect in the Robeno 
colt. Romdlet, and this 
impressive Newbury winner 
can initiate a double for 
Longboat’s trainer and jockey. 
Dick Hem and Willie Carson, 
in the Lanson Champagne 
Vintage Stakes. 

The fact that Troy and

to be bolding sway in the dosing stages of the Richmond Stakes at Goodwood yesterday 
ing the Caster ana snatches the verdict by a bead (Photograph: Tim Bishop) 

Sonic Lady a worthy champion 


Petoski are amor 
previous winners of this race 
gives some indication of the 
regard in which Roundlet is 
held at West Ilsley and it will 
be disappointing if he fails to 
follow up against today’s four 
rivals. 

Hem won the Dam ley 
Handicap 12 months ago with 
Roark and now saddles both 
Hauwmal and Temple Walk. 
But Magic Slipper, who out- 
stayed tnc useful Mtoto at 
Yarmouth a fortnight ago. has 
the best pedigree here and now 
has some excellent form. 

Joyful Dancer returned to 
his test form at Sandown last 
week and can defy a penalty in 
the Drayton Handicap while 
Domino Fire is fancied to defy 
top weight in the Levant 
Nursery Handicap. 

Guy Harwood, surprisingly 
without a runner at 
Goodwood, sends just one 
horse, Auchinate, to Don- 
caster for the Wakefield 
Malden Stakes and the hint 
should be taken. 


By Michael Seely 

Michael Stoute's record- 
breaking season continued when 
Sonic tjidy wad Scottish Reel 
gave the Newmarket trainer a 
remarkable one- two in the 
Swettenham Stud Sussex Stakes 
at Goodwood yesterday. Sonic 
Lady's pricelosa burst of Unfail- 
ing speed gave Beech Hurst its 
seventh group one winner of the 
year. This result lifted the 
stable's earnings in Europe in 
1986 to well past the £1'A 
million mark. 

This time Walter Swintwn 
had made do mistake fo his 
choke of mounts. Creville 
Starkey ensured a strong gallop 
on Scottish Reel but the writing 
was on the wall when the 
favourite was moved up two 
furlongs from home- Lengthen- 
ing her stride inside the dis- 
tance, Sonic Lady won by a 
length and a half. Pennine Walk 
stayed on to finish third with 
Bold Arrangement fourth. 

This victory In Europe's rich- 
est all-aged mile race entitled 
Sonic Lady to a lofty place 
among the fast fillies of racing 
history. And Stoute's mounting 
tally of victories In classic and 
group one races over the past few 
seasons has also given the 
Barbed hut- born genius a high 
ranking among the outstanding 
trainers of (he post-war era. 

To have produced Sheikh 
Mohammed's Nureyev filly at 


her peak after a Busy season, 
which has included a third in the 
1,000 Guineas and which has 
also comprised victories in the 
Irish 1.000 Guineas and the 
Coronation Stakes, shows the 
trainer to be an absolute master 
of his eraft. 

**1 shall now have to look at 
the Priv Jacques le Marois at 
Deauville for both hones. 1 took 
a chance in running Scottish 
Reel on this going, but if the 
ground becomes soft, he's going 
10 lake a lot of beating in these 
races. Then after that, there's 
the Priv du Moulin at 
Longchamp and the Breeders' 
Cup mile race on turf at Santa 
Anita." 

The trainer concluded by say- 
ing that Ihe results of the tests 
on Shalirastani, the beaten 
favourite in last Saturday's King 
George VI and Queen Elizabeth 
Diamond Stakes, were expected 
today. 

Robert Songster, the owner of 
the SwAttenham Stud and there- 
fore the sponsor of yesterday's 
nice, as good as admitted that 
the rumours Unking Cush 
Asmmsen with BaUydoyle and 
also with the bones owned by 
the Isle of Man-based mil- 
lionaire in England, to be true. 

This also infers that Pat 
Eddery has agreed to ride all the 
horses owned by K haled 
Abdulla in Europe io 1987. 
Eddery said that he had no 
comment to make. Asmnssen 


said that he wonld be meeting 
Mahmoud Fustok, h» present 
employer, for discussions next 
week. 

"No one can confirm or deny 
anything until the jockeys have 
finalized their contractual 
arrangements. And then it's up 
to them tn make the 
announcement," Sangster said. 
He then added: "I've had 17 
winners iu Britain this season 
and none of them have been 
uained by Vincent O'Brien or 
Michael Dickinson. But 111 be 
back.” concluded (be num who 
has been Britain's leading owner 
five times in the past nine 
seasons. 

The other pa Mem race, the 
OCL Richmond Slakes, resulted 
in triumph for Charlie Nelson 
when John Reid drove Rich 
Charlie past Dominion Royale 
in the final 100 yards to win an 
exciting race by a neck. 

Carol's Treasure finished 
third and Who Knows, after 
losing his place at halfway, 
stayed on to finish fourth. 
Cutting Blade, joint-favourite 
with the winner, was always 
struggling and could make no 
impression when switched to the 
outside over a furlong from home 
by Asmussen. 

It had been touch and go 
whether Rich Charlie would be 
in the line- up at alL "He banged 
his near-fore leg yesterday 
afternoon,” the framer said. 
“It’s been in an ice bucket every 


day since, even when travelling 
to the track and in the coarse 
stables." Rich Charlie will now 
go for the Gimcrack Stakes at 
York and after that will try and 
repeat the stable's previous vic- 
tory with Creag-an-Sgor in the 
Middle Park Stakes. 

Sw inborn had earlier initiated 
a double by winning the EBF 
Findnn Maiden Stakes on Can- 
dle In The Wind. Ray La ing, her 
trainer, who also completed a 
double later in the day when 
Respect and Ray Cochrane 
sprinted to a decisive win in the 
Singleton Stakes, said; "This is 
a big filly and she's taken some 
time 10 come to her best. She bad 
previously ran well against For- 
est Flower at Newmarket and 
l*m now going to train her for the 
Cheveley Park Stakes at New- 
market in the autumn." 

Abdulla, whose Scierpan had 
finished nmner-np to Candle In 
The Wind, soon saw his colours 
back in the winner's enclosure 
when Sarfraz beat his stable 
companion, El Conquistador, in 
the Pimm's Goodwood Stakes. 

Guy Harwood, the winning 
trainer, has no firm plans for 
either horse, but confirmed that 
Primary, who has been backed 
down from 25-1 to 6-1 
favouritism for the Ebor Handi- 
cap after his fluent victory at 
Bath on Monday, would now try 
and repeat Crazy ’s 1984 victory 
for the stable in the feature race 
of Y'ork's big meeting.

Surrey get the better of 
remarkable contest 


"i V-' . 




:V 3*vj“ - * • 


despite Hadlee’s heroics 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


THE OVAL Surrey beat Not- 
tinghamshire by 46 runs. 

A match remarkable for its 
fluctuations ended with Sur- 
rey as winners. They beat 
Nottinghamshire by 46 tuns, 
and their reward for that is a 
place in the draw for the 
NatWest Trophy semi-finals. 

On a mercinilly dry day all 
else was dwarfed by the perfor- 
mance of Richard Hadlee, 
even though he was on the 
losing side. In a Surrey innings 
of 204 his 12 overs produced 
five wickets, including the first 
three of the day, fora mere 17 
runs. His line and length were, 
of course, immaculate. Even 
so, the batsmen never knew 
what to expect next, and the 


parched pitch had just a little 
in it for the better bowlers. 


in it for the better bowlers. 

Then, coming in at 63 For 
four, which soon became 70 
for six, Hadlee found himself 
left with most of the work to 
do with the bat, and for 
Surrey's supporters the time 
came when he looked un- 
comfortably like accomplish- 
ing it Standing there without 
a helmet without ftiss and 
with excellent judgement he 
made 54 and it appeared as 
though he could have been 
unlucky to be given ouL It 
was. for all that a fine win by 
Surrey after they had lost the 
toss and made a dreadful start 

At 72 for five after 24 overs, 
with their specialist batsmen 
all gone, we were thinking in 
terms of a tea-lime finish. 
Hadlee had knocked the wind 
out of Surrey by bowling 
Falkner and Jesty and having 
Stewart caught in the gully in 


his opening spelL When Stew 
art Jesty and Lynch had not 
been crashing the ball through 
or over the covers, Surrey had 
been in trouble. Having taken 
22 overs to reach double 
figures. Ginton was caught at 
the wicket down the leg side, 
and before he had played even 
the first of his drives Jesty was 
chopped at second slip off 
Hadlee. 

By lunch Hadlee had come 


back and had Richards caught 
at the wicket, drawn to a ball 
that left him. With Robinson 
saving the single on one side 
of the wicket and Randall on 
the other, Nottinghamshire’s 
fielding within the circle was 
uncommonly good. Rice and 
Evans bowled tidily at me- 
dium pace, and as lunch 
approached Hemmings rattled 
through his overs at such a 
rate that they were finished 
almost before the batsman 
knew they had begun. From 
what I have seen of him, there 
are not many better county 
bowlers of his type than 
Cooper, a tall, accurate me- 
dium -pacer. It was a bad 
morning for Surrey. 

The picture was changed by 
Thomas, with the help of 
Monkhouse and Clarke. 
Thomas has only recently 
returned to the Surrey side 
after being kept out for the 
best part 

of a year with a groin strain. 
He played the bowling on its 
merits. Stewart and Jesty had 
both tried to get the better of 
Hadlee rather than simply 
keeping him out Thomas just 
took what was on offer, es- 
pecially from Pick. He added 
44 for the seventh wicket with 
Monkhouse and 38 in six 
overs with Clarke. 

Their hopes revived. Surrey 
were soon rid of Robinson and 
Randall In starting on a run, 
3fter glancing his first ball , 
Robinson let his left leg slide 
back onto his 1% stump; 
Randall was ieg-before, aim- 
ing to leg. Then, after 
Nottinghamshire's advantage 
had been restored by Broad 
and Johnson, the middle was 
suddenly lorn out of their 
innings. 

Between the 22nd and the 
29th overs, Johnson was 
caught on the mid-wicket 
boundary and Rice in the 
gulley. Broad was stumped 
and Evans palpably leg-before. 
From 62 for two Nottingham- 
shire had plunged to 70 for six. 
Surrey's bowlers all did their 


stuff. Pocock's 12 overs were 
of his best - it was a lovely 
ball that accounted for Broad, 
being thrown well up and 
given the chance to turn — and 
for a 1 7-year-old Martin 
Bicknell did remarkably well 
Bicknell is tall, with a nice 
action; he comes from the 
Robert Haining School at 
Guildford and has taken 22 
wickets at 22 apiece since 
being called into Surrey’s 
championship side last 
month. 

It was up to Hadlee now. 
First with French, be added 
45 for the seventh wicket, 
French successfully recover- 
ing his nerve after that horrid 
blow he took on the head 
while batting against Hadlee 
in the Test match. Next, with 


Pick, he put on 36, Pick being 
eighth out off the last ball of 


eighth out off the last ball or 
the fiftieth over. Soon after- 
wards it was all over, a long 
and absorbing match domi- 
nated by a remarkable crick- 
eter whom Godfrey Evans can 
have had no hesitation in 
making Man of the Match.

bourne and Winchester in the

At Shrewsbury, with four 
schools involved, honours fin- 
ished even. Charterhouse and 


Manchester GS all added to 
their term time four-figure ag- 
gregates in the recent Oxford 
MCC Schools FestivaL 

Crawley proved himself a real 
craftsman in making 114 for 
MCC West, and followed it with 
77 against the formidable Sri 
Lankan Young Cricketers. R 
Morris of Stowe and D Spiller of 
Worcester RGS also passed 
1.000 runs for their schools this 
season. 

Sherborne had a successful 
season with seven wins to their 
credit They owe much to the 
accurate bowling of Slade, who 
was only three wickets away 
from a school record. They 
came near to defeating Chelten- 
ham, another well-balanced 


Malvern both enjoying convinc- 
ing victories. J Wileman of 



Malvern laid the foundation of 
his side's- win over their hosts 
with a mature innings. Malvern 
then went down to 
Charterhouse, who raced to 200 
before lunch and set a target of 
289. Rugby, Malvern and 
Charterhouse hope to be joined 
by Lancing in next year’s 
festival. 

Charterhouse bad a season of 
dramatic changes of fortune, 
losing earlier to Eton, Lanc in g 


and Westminster. J Teeger has 
proved a valuable import as a 
wicketkeeper-batsman at Eton. 
They were unlucky that the 
weather deprived them of vic- 
tory over Harrow at Lord's. J 
Norman and C York shared the 
wickets in bowling Harrow out 
for 37. 

During the term Harrow had 
four convincing wins. Lan c ing 
did particularly well winning 
eight of their school matches, 
and A J Cunningham developed 
into a useful all-rounder. They 
lost in the final of the Langdale 
Cup to Harstpierpoint who 
have also enjoyed a good year, 
with Speight being outstanding. 

Brighton finished on a high 
note with two wins in the 
Ipswich Festival, and St Rani's, 
the host team, also won twice in 
their festival against Fettes and 
The Leys. 


From the moment play began 
at 1 1.15. it was dear conditions 
favoured the bowlers. Hartley, 
fresh from a championship ca- 
reer-best of six for 68 on 
Saturday after being left out of 
the side, exploited them eagerly, 
moving the ball both ways off a 
commendaWy full length. 

Green went immediately, 
bowled through the gate by one 
which nipped back. Eight un- 
comfortable overs and a 25- 
minute delay for rain later, 
Parker followed, undone by a 
delivery which left him as be 
pushed forward uncertainly.

Dennis Amiss joined one of 
the most exclusive of all 
cricket colleges on Tuesday 
when he became only the 21st 
batsman in the history of the 
game to score a century of 
centuries. The founder mem- 
ber was W G Grace in 1895; 
the last to become eligible, 
before Amiss, was Zaheer 
Abbas In December 1982. The 
next will be Vivian Richards, 
whose last hundred, for 
Somerset against Kent on 
June 14, was his 91st. The 
only others within range are 
Alvin Kailichanan (82) and 
Sunil Gavaskar (79). 

Amiss owes his great 
distinction not to genius or 
instinct or quick-wittedness, 
bat mainly to perseverance. Of 
the other 20 members of the 
dub only **WG" took more 
innings to reach a hundred 
hundreds. His came in his 
1,113th and Amiss’s in his 
1,081st. Don Bradman's came 
in an unbelievable 295 and 
Denis Compton's in only 552. 
Geoff Boycott's took 645, a 
higher ratio than anyone other 
than Bradman, Compton and 
Leu Hntton (619). 

Amiss is 43. older than all 
the others when they reached 
the milestone except for 
“WG" who was 46, Ernest 
Tytdesley. who was 45, and 
Les Ames and Andrew 
Sandbam, who were both 44. 
In 1928 W G Qnaife was 56 
when in his only champion- 
ship match of the season, for 
Warwickshire against Derby- 
shire, he "batted with all his 
old-time steadiness and skill 
for four hours 20 minutes, 
offering no chance and making 
his runs with a nice variety of 
stroke-lIFtoM. RES Wy- 
att and W G Grace are the 
only others to have made first- 
class hundreds as late as their 
57th year, though both were 
! very slightly younger than 
Qnaife. 

For a long time Amiss's 
i career was one of rather more 
downs than ups. In his first 
championship innings, id 
1960, he was ran out for 
nought, and by 1964, when he

CompSed by Rtclrard Streeton 


finished at the bottom of the 
Warwickshire averages (55 
runs in eight champfonship 
innings), it was looking as 
though be might never make 
the grade. A heavy scorer in 
Second XI cricket be did tittle 
good for the first side until 
1965. Then in 1966, although 
he had yet to score a 
championship hundred, he 
suddenly leapt out of the pack, 
making 160 not out for 
Warwickshire against foe 
West Indians and playing m 
the last Test match against 
them at the Oval. 


By 1972 he was straggling 
again, even his county place 
being in doubt Left out for 
several matches in the early 
part of that season, his lock 
changed when, in mid-June, 
he was given the chance to go 
in first against Middlesex at 
Edgbaston. He scored 151 not 
out and that really set him off. 


In his first 12 Test matches, 
between 1966 and 1972. he 
had averaged only 1&32: in his 
next 20 (1972-74) he averaged 
71.33 and bit eight centuries, 
his 262 not out against West 
Indies in Jamaica in March 


1974 being one of foe greatest 
of all match-saving efforts. 

There was one other Test 
triumph to come — an innings 
of 203 against West Indies in 
foe fifth Test match of 1976. 
So vulnerable had he become 
against the fastest bowling 
that after being hit a dreadful 
blow by Holding, playing for 
MCC against foe West In- 
dians at the start of the 1976 
season, he had developed a 
curiously peripatetic method 
to counter them. I remember 
asking him, after he had been 
picked to play in that Oval 
Test whether he was looking 
forward to it He had achieved 
so much and yet suffered such 
tortures against Lillee and 
Thomson that I thought he 
might, deep down, have been 
content to rest on his earlier 
laurels. Bat not a bit of it 
“Yes, of course I am,** he said. 
If asked to come back today, I 
hare no doubt be would jump 
at that too. 

It would be kindest I think, 
to draw something of a veil 
over his association with the 
Packer circus. As it was to all 
the others, the money was an 
attraction. At foe same time. 


Amiss was more concerned 
than most not to let his friends 
down. He joined World Series 
Cricket m foe end, and had a 
miserable time, ducking and 
weaving and hardly getting a 
ran as foe ball flew round his 
ears in makeshift matches on 
makeshift pitches. That be- 
hind him, and given a new 
lease of life by foe helmet lie 
settled contentedly back into 
county cricket to add to his 
huge stockpile of runs. With 
over 41,000 of them at an 
average of 43 he is now twelfth 
in foe all-time list having 
Overtaken Sand ham earlier 
(his season. 

Dennis Amiss loves batting. 
He never gives an innings 
away, anyway until he is sated. 
He is a soUd, pipe-smoking 
citizen, a formidable player 
through mid-wicket, endlessly 
patient and on his day a 
thunderous driver of foe balk 
an admirable example, in fact, 

in ^"nmring between wick- 
ets) and a worthy member of a 
very exclusive fellowship.

Coe out of 1 , 500 m 
and maybe 800 m 


By Pat Batcher 

Athletics Correspondent 

Sebastian Coe, who looked 
a certainty to run two finals in 
his first Commonwealth 
Games, may appear in nei- 
ther. His first gold medal oyer 
800 metres in a major 
championship will elude lura 
for certain if this morning he 
drops out of this afternoon's 
final in which he is due to fece 
Steve Cram, among others. 
Coe's throat infection has 
..already forced him to with- 
draw from the 1,500 metres, 
the necessity for doing so at an 
early stage being that the final 
list of runners for tomorrow's 
heats had to be declared by 
9.30 yesterday morning. His 
place has gone to Rob Harri- 
son rather than Sieve Ovett, 
who made a late request for 
conideration. 

Coe's -decision to withdraw 
from the longer distance must 
also point to the likelihood of 
a similar exit from the 800 
metres. In announcing the 
news yesterday morning, Gor- 
don Wright, the England 
men's team manager said that 
the athlete's condition had 
improved but David 
Moorcroft, who is here as a 
commentator, saw Coe yes- 
terday, and said: ~Seb looks 
grey, and really ilL" 

All of which indicates, Coe's 
presence in the final or not, 
that Cram should win the first 

The toast 
is great 
Breton 

Adrian Breton, a 23-year-

the pride of the 49-strong 
Guernsey team yesterday after 
winning the Channel Isle's

way to silver in the individual 
rapid fire pistol competition at 
Musselburgh. 

His two-day total of 588 
would have given him the gold 
medal at any other Games, 
but he had to play second best 
to Australian Pat Murray who 
shot a Games record 591 to 
add the individual gold to the 
team bronze he won in the 
rapid fire pairs. 

England's leading bad- 
minton players, Steve 
Baddeley and Nick Yates, in

ble. 

Only Peter Elliott and Tom 
McKean are likely to get 
anywhere near Cram. And 
Elliott must make his move 
sooner rather than later which 
would draw out McKean's 
resources, thus dampening his 
fast finish, which surprised 
Cram once last year. 

Ovett's opponents in the 

5.000 metres this afternoon 
should draw confidence from 
his attempt to secure the l .500 
metres place vacated by Coe. 
For. allied to Ovett's 'talk last 
week about a possible 1.500 
metres place in the European 
championship, it smacks of a 
man unsure of his 5,000 
metres capabilities. 

Ovett said yesterday: “I was 
disappointed that I was not 
selected. With respect to Rob 


have been confirmed for the 
match already. 

Daley Thompson inns a leg 
of the sprint relay and both 
Roger Black and Headier

Several athletes involved in 
the Games boycott are doe to 
be in the Commonwealth 
squad including die Jamaican 
Bert Cameron, the world 400 
metres champion. 

Harrison, after everything that 
has happened in Edinburgh 
this week, I'm sure the crowd 
would have liked to see Cram 
versus Ovett, because it would 
be the first race that we'd had 
since the mile in the 1AC 
meeting three years ago. And 
that was a great race, which 
people still talk about". 

Certainly, Ovett did look 
good in winning over 1.500 
metres in Paris last week in 
3min 34.52sec, third fastest of 
the year and his fastest for 
three years. But Ovett 
dropped out of his previous 
race when underpressure, and 
with what is sure to be a hard 

5,000 metres today, the selec- 
tors made a wise derision. For 
Harrison is also one of the 
fastest 1,500 metres runners in 
the world this year, and with

More tears as new 
events feel boycott 

By John Goodbody 

The boycott of sports events Northern Ireland. Australia. 


in Britain, which has spoilt the 
13th Commonwealth Games 
in Edinburgh, is spreading. 
Zimbabwe, and almost cer- 
tainly Into, are withdrawing 
from the Commonwealth gym- 
nastics championships. It is 
also feared that next month's 
world rowing championships 
in Nottingham and October’s 
world hockey cup in London 
may be affected. 

Pam Scott administrator of 
the Scottish Amateur Gym- 
nastics Association, said yes- 
terday that Zimbabwe are 
staying away from the champ- 
ionships in Falkirk from Au- 
gust 8-10, while Into had not 
replied. 

She said: “The head of the 
Zimbabwe delegation said his 
gymnasts were in tears after 
four years of preparation. 
They badly wanted to come to 
Scotland. 

“In view of India's stance 
over the Games, we are assum- 
ing they will be pulling out as 
well although we have not 
heard from them yet" She 
agreed that the gymnastics 
association may be under the 
same pressure from the Indian 
government as their Com- 
monwealth Games organ- 
ization was in their decision to 
poll ont of Edinburgh. 

The three-day tournament 
has attracted nme countries: 
England, Scotland, Wales, 


FACSIMILE IS EFFICIENCY 



New Zealand. Hong Kong, 
Canada and the Republic of 
Ireland as guests. 

Although it will be too late 
to save these championships 
from being spoilt, next 
month's Commonwealth con- 
ference could save future 
events from more serious 
disruption. Last Sunday's 
meeting of the Commonwealth 
Games Federation derided 
unanimously to ask Sir Sonny 
Ramphal the Commonwealth 
secretary-general to approach 
the heads of state in London to 
persuade them not to intervene 
politically in future games and 
by implication in other inter- 
national competitions. But Sir 
Sonny's office said vesterday 
that the secretary-general bad 
yet to hear from the 
Federation. 

With Britain refusing to 
impose complete economic 
sanctions on Sooth Africa, 
many Third World conn tries’ 
governments may maintain 
their stance at the Common- 
wealth Games for the world 
rowing championships, where 
their absence would be un- 
important in the medals table 
and also, more seriously, at the 
world hockey cup. 

Roger Dakin, an official of 
the world hockey cup, agreed 
yesterday that the organizing 
committee was sufficiently 
concerned to have discussed 
the possibility of a boycott. 
India and Pakistan, the Olym- 
pic and world champions, are 
two of die favourites for the 
12-nation competition, which 
begins at Wiliesden on Octo- 
ber 4. Dakin said: “We have 
not approached the Indian 
Hockey Federation. It is np to 
them. We would be dis- 
appointed if India did not 
come and surprised if Paki- 
stan do not participate." 

Mr Dakin pointed ont that 
any countries boycotting the 
tournament are likely to be 
banned from competition by 
the International Hockey 
Federation for four years and 
also that because of the 
popularity of the sport in the 
two countries it would be ill- 
advised politically. 


hood is still that Cram, John 
Gladwin and Hanison will 
win all three medals. 

There are only really four 
men in contention in the 5.000 
metres. Oven Tim Hutchings 
.and Jack Buckner for England, 
and John Walker of New 
Zealand. 

Ovett is aware that Walker, 
a former 1,500 metres man 
like himself has had more 
experience of 5,000 metres, 
and that both Walker and 
Buckner have had fast 3,000 
metres victories in recent 
weeks. But, should Oven. feel 
the same sort of twinge that 
made him drop out of another 

3.000 metres race in Nice 
three weeks ago. he is likely to 
keep going this lime if victory 
is as close. 

Kirsiy Wade must be 
favourite to retain the 800 
metres tide that she won as 
Miss McDermott in Brisbane 
four years ago. And, on form 
only the title holder. Milt 
Oltey of Canada stands be- 
tween Geoff Parsons and a 
second gold medal for Scot- 
land. in the high jump. The 
200 metres should confirm the 
emergence of another sprint 
star from Canada, even if 20- 
year-old Atlee Mahor does not 
get the better of the 100 metres 
title holder and fastest man in 
the world this year, Ben 
Johnson, who is running one 
of his rare races at the longer 
distance. 

A plea for 
full-time 
organizers 

A member of Auckland's 
organizing committee for the 
1990 Commonwealth Games 
yesterday criticized the ad- 
ministration of the current 
event and proposed that in 
future there should be a 
permanent official executive 
(John Goodbody writes). 

Malcolm Beattie said yes- 
terday he believed problems 
would always arise while the 
Games were not run by pro- 
fessionals, claiming things go 
awry when amateurs try to run 
a professional organisation. 
“In Edinburgh it is a shocking 
situation," he said. “You have 
professional staff, volunteers, 
councillors and a small 
marketing organization. All 
different parties are working 
against each other." 

Beattie has proposed that a 
body of five members organ- 
ize future Games, led by an 
executive director to “ensure 
continuity". It would also cost 
the Federation salaries and 
administration costs which 
currently they cannot afford. 

But the Commonwealth 
Games Federation are to con- 
sider Beanie's proposal which 
would mean that the perma- 
nent secretarial would org- 
anize the event at different 
host cities. A constitutional 
review body will assess the 
value of the suggestion. 

The International Olympic 
Committee, who unlike the 
CGF, have a permanent head- 
quarters, do not have a body 
responsible for the organ- 
ization of Games although 
they employ a staff of 23. The 
IOC are far more wealthy than 
the Federation because tele- 
vision fees are so bigb for the 
Olympics. Nevertheless they 
leave the organization of 
Olympics to the individual 
cities. 

Edinburgh, apart from the 
boycott, has had particular 
difficulties. Although many of 
the facilities have remained 
from Lhe 1 970 Games they are 
still £2 million short in fund 
raising to cover their costs on 
this quadrennial event 



Both the Rugby Football 
Union and Middlesex will 
benefit next season from an 
extension of Save and 
Prosper's sponsorship of 
rugby. The unit trust life 
assurance and pensions group 
are to provide £50,000 to- 
wards the England v France 
match at Twickenham on 
February 21 next year and 
they have also formed a five 
year agreement worth 
£150.000 to sponsor the 
Middlesex seven-a-side 
loumamenL 

It will be the first time in its 
60 year-old history that the 
sevens have been sponsored 
and it was described yesterday 
by Peter Yarranton, President 
of Middlesex, as one of the 
biggest agreements to be con- 


cluded with a constituent 
body. 

Save and Prosper came to a 
three-agreement worth 
£500,000 with the RFU last 
December which includes 
sponsorship of one inter- 
national each season, (next 
season it will be the Calcutta 
Cup match in January). They 
also backed the International 
Board's centenary congress- in 
April. 

Also yesterday National 
Girobank announced an 
extenlion of their support for 
the RFU's pilot league 
schemes. They formed a 
successful partnership with 
the north west last season and 
will now back the Eastern 
Counties league which, in its 
second season, will take in 
some 65 clubs in six divisions.

and was due to meet Test ana

and under foe chairman of

Illingworth said: “ft was the

said 'no' because their idea of
