By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 

The Cabinet battle oyer 
public spending burst into the 
open yesterday as -the Chan- 
cellor of the Exchequer. Mr 
Nigel Lawson, and the Con- 
servative Party chairman, Mr 
Norman Tebbit. delivered 
forthright calls for further" 
reductions in taxation. - 

In a Commons debate on 
the economy and unemploy- 
ment, Mr Lawson described 
the reduction pf the burden of 
taxation as a moral duty and 
said: “This is no time for a 
change of policy’'. 

Addressing the animal, Con- 
servative women's conference 
in London, Mr Tebbit repeat- 
ed that die Government's aim 
was to achieve zero inflation 
and said: “Taxation should be 
cut further”. 

With the Prime Minister, 
Mr Lawson and Mr Tebbit are 
the Cabinet's most prominent 
advocates of tax-cutting and 
opponents of the growing 
band of ministers who have 
been calling for more spending 
on housing, health and educa- 
tion to reverse the slide in the 
Government's- popularity. 

Their message is likely to be - 
reinforced by Mrs Margaret 
Thatcher in her gteech to the 
women's conference today. 

Yesterday' in the Commons 
she told a Conservative back- 
bencher that additional expen- 
diture had to be matched by 
economies elsewhere, a re- 
mark MPs took to be directed 
to some of her colleagues. 

But it was the tone" of Mr 
Lawson's speech which most 
struck Conservative MPs, par- 
ticularly those who have been 
calling for . higher . public : 

It was dear from his speech 
that Mr Lawson is determined 
not to allow the Secretary of 
Sale for Education and Sci- 
ence. Mr Kenneth Baker, 
automatically to' have the 
extra £1 billion or more that 
he is seeking in the imminent 
spending discussions. 

It was noted that he had 
specifically mentioned educa- 
tion when talking about die 
need to achieve better value 
for money out df the sums of 
money ' spent by local and 
central goventmenL . . 

He said the latest figures 
showed that ratepayers and 
ratepayers m Britain spent 

The Chancellor yes- 
terday: “If we fall to 
control public expen- 
ditnre It will not be a 
question of how much the 
burden . of taxation on 
Ordinary families can be 
reduced. It vnD be a 
question of how mach it is 
to go up”. 

about 20 per cent more a pupil 
- than they did m Japan and 50 
per cent more than in Fiance. 

“Yet this is manifestly not 
reflected in what parents right- 
ly care about, standards and 
values and the child's prepara- 
tion- for the real world of 
tomorrow”, he said. \ 

The Chancellor added: “We 
need to continue the process 
of reducing the burden of 
taxation not just as a social 
service but as & moral duly - 
and an essential means of - 

improving our national eco- 
nomic performance”. 

Mr Lawson accepted the 
need for' a “keen sense of 
priorities” with public spend- 
ing, reflecting the Treasury's 
line that if there are to be big 
increases on some items that 
can lake place only within the 
planned totals of spending. 

' He said: "If increased public 
. expenditure were the remedy 
for all our ills the voters might 
be tempted to support those 
who have always maintained, 
this to be so. It is not so. as bit- 
ter experience should- have 
taughrus.” . 

The Chancellor said that 
people on middle incomes 
were still paying too much tax. 
But he added that no one 
should take tax cuts for grant- 

He' repeated his optimistic 
assessment of the prospects 
for industry, but both be and 
Mr Tebbit said that excessive 
wage, demands could damag e 
the 'chances of grasping the 
opportunities ahead. 

Mr Lawson said it was a 
“moment of opportunity” fin- 
industry. Inflation had come 
down sharply, the pattern of 
exchange rates was more 
favourable and world markets 
were about to expand again as 
the . benefits of the oil price 
fella flowed through. 

But he added: “Whether 
that opportunity is successful- 
ly grasped or largely dissipated 
will depend on management's 
determination to control their 
unit labour .costs — the 
Achilles' heel of the econ-

when Mr Victor Paige, chair-

Mr Paige said; “Ministers and

fare war 

By Alan Hamilton 

A summer air fares war 
across the North Atlantic ap- 
peared to have been declared 
yesterday with the announce- 
ment by Mr Richard Branson 
that his Virgin Atlantic airline 
was seeking approval for a £56 
single fare from London to 
New York. If granted, it will 
be in real terms the cheapest 
scheduled fare ever offered 
between Britain and the Unit- 
ed States. 

Mr Branson made his an- 
nouncement in response to his 
rival American-ouWd People 
Express airline, which made it 
known on Monday that it had 
sought clearance from the 
Civil Aviation Authority for a 
£66 transatlantic single fere. 
The authority is expected to 
give its decision next week; if 
the feres are granted, other 
airlines are likely 10 follow 

Both Virgin and People 
Express intend to offer the 
cheap seats to the first 30 seats 
sold on any flighL 

The price-cutting is being 
seen as a marketing exercise 
on one of the wond's most 
intensely competitive routes, 
rather than a response to 
felling oil prices. Last year a 
record 6.9 million passengers 
travelled from British airports 
to North American destina- 
tions. an increase of 400,000 
on 1984. This year a weak 
dollar has made the United 
States an attractive holiday 
destination for Britons, but 
traffic in the opposite direc- 
tion has been hit by American 
fears of terrorism. 

Virgin Atlantic and People 
Express are already in direct 
competition; last year both 
offered a £99 single fare 
between Gatwick and New- 
ark, New Jersey. 

Mr Branson said yesterday: 
“We believe in a simple low- 
fere, high-quality product for 
all without the gimmicks of a 
few tickets used as a shop- 
window display. StilL if Peo- 
ple (Express) are going to play 

believe mTxn^iintSemn.* 

Mr Timothy Burite, People 
Express manager for the UK 
and Belgium, said yesterday: 
“There is no question that, 
day in and day out we are the 
lowest price carrier across the 
Atlantic. Our £66 application 
applies to the one minor area 
where we were not the cheap- 
est, and that is the 21-day 
advance-booking fare.”

Detectives investigating a 
£7 million arson attack at a 
News International newsprint 
warehouse in south-east Lon- 
don were today hunting at 
least three men whom they 
believe may hare doused the 
build ing with petrol before 
igniting it with firebombs. 

Mr Brace Matthews, the 
group's managing director, 
said he believed the culprits 
were involved with printers ha

announced that News Interna- 
tional was offering a £50,000 
reward for information leading 
directly. to their arrest and 

As firemen continued to 
fight the blaze yesterday, Mr 
Matthews, received the latest 
in a series of death threats 
from an anonymous caller who 
told his secretary: "That was a 
well organized job last night, 
wasn’t it? Tell him he'll be the 
next to burn.” Several execu- 
tives of tbe company have been 
escorted by bodyguards for the 
past two months after receiv- 
ing s imilar threats. 

The 100 sq m L-shaped 
number 18 shed at Convoy's 
Wharf, Deptford, which had 
contained 10,000 tonnes of 
newsprint, was still bunting 
fiercely at its centre 24 hours 
after the blaze erupted. The 
corrugated tin roof collapsed 
into tbe modern building after 
steel support girders had 
buckled in the inferno. 

Scientists from the police 
fire investigation unit are ex- 
amining the theory that one 
man may have forced his way 
into tbe shed shortly before 
the attack and poured petrol 
over the huge rolls of tightly 
packed paper. 

A source close to the investi- 
gation said that rolls of news- 
print were as difficult to ignite 
as solid blocks of wood, but 
once a surface sheet was alight 
it released combustible gases 
that rapidly spread the fire. “It 
had to hove been a methodical 
job,” he said. 

Descriptions of tbe gang 
have been given by two women 
witnesses to detectives at 
Greenwich police station and 
photo-fit pictures are expected 
to be issued. Lists of printers 
who were dismissed by News 
International in January after

Solicitors oppose 
fee review body 

A grunt in 
favour of 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 

The Law Society is oppos- 
ing moves for an independent 
review body in place of the 
present direct negotiation of 
legal aid fees between the legal 
profession and the Govern- 
ment which will be debated in 
the House of Lords today. 

Such a review body, recom- 
mended in the Royal Com- 
mission on Legal Services in 
1979. is strongly supported by 
the Bar which wants the 
present mechanism of setting 
legal aid fees to be abolished. 

The Law Society, which 
represents the solicitors' 
branch of the profession, 
agrees with the Bar that 

present arrangements - which 
have led to an angry and bitter 
dispute with uie- Govern- 
ment - are unsatisfactory and 
wants an independent element 
involved in the assessment of 

But it favours the creation 
of a review panel to provide 
an independent arbitration 
service between the profession 
and the Government only 
where specific differences 
arise, rather than a review 
body which would assess and 
recommend fee levels. 

In a briefing paper to peers, 
the society reiterates its origi- 
nal objection to the proposal 
fora review or advisory body, 
arguing that it is “unlikely that 
the Government would agree 

... because of the expense 

It calls for a review panel 
along the lines of that which 
exists for pharmacists. That 
would not be a standing body 
but would consider only spe- 
cific points of dispute referred 
to iL 

Its recommendations would 
not be binding but would 
“cany considerable weight”, 
the society says. Successive 
governments have agreed to 
honour the recommendations 
of review bodies unless there 
is a compelling reason in the 
public interest not to do so; 
but frequently their proposals 
are not followed. 

Supporters of such -a body, 
however, say that at least a fair 
level of fees would be assessed 
independently and irrespec- 
tive of public spending con- 
straints; and any government

subject to scrutiny. 

Mr Eric Hiley, the society’s 
official dealing with remuner- 
ation, said yesterday: “This 
Government is not interested 
in creating another quango 
and such a panel would be a 
Jot less expensive than a 
permanent review body.” 

The idea of a review body 
will be urged in the Lords 
today by Lord Benson, who 
was chairman of the Royal 
Commission on Legal Ser- 

University will pay off 
debts to save merger 

University College, Cardiff, 
will pay off its accumulated 
£3.2 million debts to enable a 
planned merger with the Uni- 
versity of Wales Institute of 
Science and Technology to go 
ahead in 1989, its vice-princi- 
pal said yesterday. 

Dr Alfred Moritz said the 
college had given only “pre- 
liminary considerariorT to a 
report on its finances, which 
projects a much larger deficit 
by 1989 without big econo- 
mies. including possible re- 
dundancies and departmental 

Cardiff was one of 18 uni- 
versities and colleges to have 
its grant for next year reduced 
in cash terms. Ten depart- 
ments were considered below 
average in academic research. 

Two Scottish universities, 
Strathclyde and Stirling, have 
agreed a swap of academic 
staff to assist financial stream- 
lining. Stirling, which received 
the maximum 0.5 per cent cut 
in grant for next year, intends 
to build up its environmental 
science department — which it 
considers strong - by taking

A trade anion president 
yesterday entered a plea for a 
modi maligned and potential- 
ly endangered species: the 
male chauvinist pig. 

Mr John Scott-Gamer, 
president of the National 
Communications Union, told 
his clerical group in confer- 
ence at Blackpool: “We cannot 
banish centuries of male chau- 
vinist piggery at a strobe. Try 
to tolerate ns.” 

Miss Michelle Berry, a 
British Telecom assistant sec- 
retary in the West End of 
London, had told the gronp 
meeting that women delegates 
woe suffering in the street, at 
their own group meeting, and 
from members of the predomi- 
nantly male engineering group 
meeting in the ball next door. 

“We are being harassed and 
embarrassed,” she said. “We 
get ’Give ns a ltiss’ remarks 
dob trade unionists who 
should be more enlightened, 
while in the street there have 
been bottom-pinching inci- 
dents from other people." 

Mr Scott-Gamer tried to 
reassure his female followers. 
“People do not do these things 
deliberately,** he claimed. 
Then, lest he be thought to be 
advancing a hypothesis of 
accidental bottom-pinching 
and involuntary proposition- 
ing, be added: “They do it as 
part of their culture.” 

The kiss-me-quick hat is, of 
coarse, familiar as a cultural 
accoutrement in Blackpool 

Mr Spike Wood, the clerical 
group's chairman, elaborated. 
It would take time, be said, to 
overcome the trouble. “Cul- 
tures have changed. What 
would have been tolerated in 
Victorian times will not be 
tolerated now.” 

That remark might argu- 
ably have been taken to refer 
to Miss Berry -and ethers of 
her sex who object to compli- 
mentary invitations to speedy 
osculation, but no-one at the 
conference was an gentlemanly 
enough to reach so deeply 
prejudiced a conclusion. 

With a few solemn grants, 
the conference returned to its 
deliberations and Miss Berry 
and her colleagues enjoyed a 
quiet afternoon. 

Swan Hunter, the newly privatized 
warship yard, announced more than 800 
redundancies on Tyneside yesterday, 
with the threat of more to come unless 
the Government fulfills promised 

The losses result from the firm’s 
failure to win a Ministry of Defence 
contract for the first of a new class of 
Navy supply ships. That went to the 
Belfast yard of Hariand and Wolff. 

Yesterday's announcement of 825 
redundancies by the end of the year was 
another grim chapter in the North-east’s 
unfolding saga of worsening unemploy- 

ment queues. 

In the past few weeks, the region has 
lost 2300 jobs in the British 
Shipbuilders’ cutback of almost 3300, 
and 790 jobs were cot by Northern 
Engineering Industries at factories in 
Newcastle and Gateshead. 

Behind yesterday’s armooncement by 
Swan Hooter is an increasing impa- 
tience and anger with the Go verament at 
Its failure, the company says, to fulfill 

By Peter Davenport 

promises to place farther ministry work 
on the Type. 

To avoid farther cuts by the autism 
from the reduced workforce of 3300, the 
firm said yesterday tint it seeded the 
Government to place “within months” 
the order for a Type 23 frigate first 
promised 17 months ago by the then 
Secretary of State for Defence, Mr 
Michael Heseltiae. 

It was said to be a compensation 
order, worth about £60 mfifioa and 
gnatranfnring work for three years, to 
make up for the decision to award the 
contract for the first of the class cm 
social grounds to the threatened 
Merseyside yard of Camnefl Land. 

Mr Roger Vaughan, numagfwg direc- 
tor .in charge of procu rem ent and 
development with Swan Hunter, tsaib 
“It is completely unbelievable why there 
is this delay. One might have thoogM 
tbe Government would have been gUd to 
give some good news to the North-east 
We find the delay inexplicable.” 

The company, bought from British 

Shipbuilders for £5 million. last Janu- 
ary, is also still waiting to be given the 
order for the second of the auxiliary idler 
replenishment vessel* the first of which 
went to Belfast. 

Swan Hunter is completing three 
frigates for the Royal Navy, and 
bniMins a replacement for (he landing 
craft, Sir Galahad, destroyed In the 
Falklands conflict. After that, order 
books are empty. 

Of the job fosses announced yester- 
day, 450 are steelworkers, 115 outfit- 
ters, 190 technical and design staff, and 
70 management and supervisory staff. 
Although the company will ask for 
Vohmtms to go, compulsory redundan- 
cies will be unavoidable. 

The company is exploring the possi- 
bility of securing overseas orders for 
warships and auxiliary vessels. 

Union leaders in die yard are con- 
cerned that if the workforce continues to 
shrink, it may mean the end of the 

limited company and is ex-

payment of 310,000 soon, 
with a further $20,08) coming 
from money-raising efforts of 
the party and the National 
Democratic Institute, a 
branch of the American'ffind. 

Mr Alban Magmnis, chair- 
man of tfieSDLP, denied that 
the cash was linked to the 
Anglo-Irish Agreement or 
would affect the independence 
of the party. The money 
would not be used for any 
electoral operation.

help the party to research 
policy and organizational 

technique-would be set tip in a

business people asking fen- aid 
to enable the party to contest

£14-25 and £6.6 for those 
entitled to them.

fit, to some others on low 
income, to children aged un-

Miss Symes said she did not 
know why she had been

described it as a criminal'

been treated as such.

Police, framed 

man for Tory 
bomb, QC says 

Police officers framed a 
man for the Brighton bombing attempt to retrieve their 
credibility, it was alleged at 
the Central Criminal Court 

Mr Richard Ferguson, QC, 
a defence counsel, said that 
the police selected his diem, 
Patrick Magee, aged 35, to be 
“the villain of the piece". 

He accused them of check- 
ing that Mr Magee had no 
cast-iron alibi then planting 
his fingerprints on a registra- 
tion card at the Grand Hotel, 
Brighton, where a bomb ex- 
ploded in October 1984 killing 
five people attending the Con- 
servative Party conference. 

Mr Ferguson, making his 
closing speech on tire nine- 
teenth day of Mr Magee's trial, 
said that the allegation was 
not one be made lightly. 

“Certainly it is an allegation 
which might invoke little fa- 
vour were it made in an 
ordinary case. But this is no 
ordinary case. You had an 
entire police force under 

“Yon can imagine the fu- 
rore which followed this 
bomb: Whose fault was h. 

what about the security? 

“You may think the only 
way the police could redeem 

■themselves was to find some- 
one as a defendant and to 
charge him or her with the 

“There was no other way 
they could retrieve their credi- 
bility. That, we say, is what 
happened and Magee was the 
likefy suspect." 

Mr Ferguson told the jury: 
“The question is whether you 
are sure that Patrick Magee 
was the Brighton bomber, not 
just for today but for the 
future, and whether you have 
the courage and integrity to 
prevent his name going down 
in history as the Brighton 

Mr Magee is accused of 
planting the device in room 
629 at the Grand Hotel a 
month before it went off, 
causing the explosion and 
killing the five people who 

He and four others are 
charged with plotting to cause 
explosions in London and 
other towns last summer. 

The other defendants are 
Gerard McDonnel, aged 34, 
Peter Sherry, aged 30, Martina 
Anderson, aged 23, and Ella 
O’ Dwyer, aged 26. All plead 
not guilty. 

The trial continues today. 

Boy found dying ‘had 
many dog-bite marks’ 

A boy’s love of animals may 
have led to his death, an 
inquest at Loughborough, 
Leicestershire, was told. 

David Clarke, aged seven, 
who was found dying in a 
snow-covered field near his 
home in Wymeswold Road, 
Hoton, last February, had 
“severe and numerous” dog- 
bite marks. Sitting next to him 
was a boxer puppy. 

Mr Philip Tomlinson, the 

North Leicestershire Coroner, 
said that there was a great deal 
which was still unexplained 
and for that reason he would 
record an open verdict. 

Dr Dennis Bouche, a con- 
sultant pathologist, said that 
casts taken of the boxer’s jaw 
and those of two other boxers 
showed clearly that two of the 
dogs had bitten the boy. 

Death was due to exposure 
in sub-zero temperatures. 

Home prices rise by 5%

The Halifax House Rice.

Hippy convoy 

Chancellor’s warning 


Government willing 
to consider change 
in law on trespass 


circumstances. The convoy was' 
anything but peaceful. 

Tf the law on trespass was 
inadequate the Government 
would consider amending it, 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher, the 
Prime Minister, said during 
Commons questions when 

It resembles (be went on) a 
band of medieval brigands, with 
so respect for the law and the 
rights of others. 

Mr Hard told MPs that the 
Public Order Bill now before 
Parliament would further 
strengthen police powers over 
threatening behaviour and dis- 
orderly conduct when commit- 
ted on private land. 

However, there were strong 
arguments against making sim- 
ple trespass a criminal offence. 
No one wanted to criminalize 
ramblers walking across a field, 
or genuine gypsies. 

The Government was discuss- 
ing with the police, the National 
Fanners' Union and the Coon- 
try Landowners’ Association 
whether further strengthening of 
the law was required and, if it 
was, wbat form it should take. 

No one should under-es- 
timate the difficulties of policing 
the convoy. The convoy was not 
entitled to special treatment or 
exemptions simply because its 
members wished to contract out 
of their responsibilities as 

Mr Patrick McNair- Wilson 
(New Forest. Q said this large. 

asked about the hippy “peace 
convoy” which on Monday was 
camped on common land in the 
New Forest. 

She said she shared the dis- 
taste expressed with the whole 
matter. There was loud laughter 
when she told MPs that a social 
security officer was attached to 
the peace convoy to prevent 
fraudulent benefit claims. 

She was replying to Mr James 

Spicer (West Dorset, Q who 
had asked her to join with him 
in praising the Dorset police for 
the firm but. fair way they had 
bandied the so-called peace 
convoy at the weekend. 

Most people are puzzled (be 
added) that such trespass and 
such disruption on our high- 
ways can be allowed to 

Mr Andrew MacKay (East Berk- 
shire, Q: While I am delighted 
that she wifi look al thequestion 
of trespass and the law, is she 
satisfied that the law is being 
obeyed to the extent that bene- 
fits are being properly paid to 
these hippies? 

Is she satisfied their children 
are being properly educated 
under the law and satisfied 
hftahh legislation is being prop- 
erly enacted in respect oftbem? 
Mrs Thatcher; Police powers on 
vehicles and registrations is 
wholly a matter for the police. 
On the benefits they are receiv- 
ing, so that there should be no 
possibility of fraud or that they 
appear at one benefit office 
having got benefit at another, 
there is a social security officer 
attached to them to see that 
duplication does not occur. 

Yes, I bad exactly the same 
reaction as MPs when I- read 
that, but then I was told (here 
was a tendency for them to 

McNair- Wibon: Why cut they 
not be got off the road? 

apply to one office, go on to 
another and also to apply, and 
the social security thought it 
important to take action to 
avoid that- 

•Tbe Prime Minister’s assur- 
ance about a possible change in 
the law was repeated later by Mr 
Douglas Hurd, the Home Sec- 
retary. when he answered a 
private notice question about 
the hippy “peace convoy”. 

If changes to the law — on top 
of those recently made, and 
others proposed for the near 
future — were needed (he said) 
the Government would not 
-hesitate to make them. . . 

The Lord Chancellor (Lord 
Hailsham of St Marylebone) 
was urgently considering how 
the dvu law might be stream- 

lined to allow more speedy 
recovery of land under such 

unruly and anarchic group, 
which had been in existence m 
one form or another for many 
years, travelled with their own 
legal adviser in vehicles, many 
of which were untaxed, untested 
and uninsured. 

Why could not action be 
taken to get them off the road? 

Passing the problem from his 
constituents to someone else 
was no answer. 

What was going to be done to 
beak up this group into a 
manageable size? 

Mr Hurd agreed that it was not 
enough to speed the so-called 
peace convoy on its way without 
regard to their law-breaking 

However, the law as it stood 
meant that the police had no 
power to prevent the further 
movement of those vehicles. 
Mr Paddy Ashdown (Yeovil, L) 
wanted to know why the Gov- 
ernment had foiled to respond 
to the request by Somerset 
County Council, a year ago, as 

Mr Hard said thatMr Soley had 
turned this into a party political 
issue. His remarks bore no 
relation to reality. If sites were 
provided for these people, he 
did not think they would sit in 
"them or abide by them.

particular concentration of 
heavy industries there. That is 

The Government is concerned 
that administrative and clerical 
staffing levels in the National 
Health Service should be con- 
trolled so that resources can be 
concentrated on direct patient 
care. Mr Raymond Whitney, 
Under Secretary of State for 
Health and Social Security, said 

Although the contribution of 
administrative staff to the run- 

ning of the NHS was necessary 
and valuable, there was still 

and valuable, there was still 
scope for improvement in the 
use and efficiency of this staff 
group and the NHS Manage- 
ment Board was conducting a 
review of administrative and 
clerical staffing to see what 
action was needed, he added. 
Mr Darid Evennett (Erilh and 

Cray ford, Cj complained that in 
the South-East Thames region.

tion was taking for loo much of 

There were possibilities for the 
Swan Hunter shipyards on 
Tyneside if they could manufac- 
ture down to the right price, Mrs 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister, 
said during Commons question 
time when asked about the latest 
redundancies there by Mr Don- 
ald Dixon (Jarrow, Lab). 

He pointed out that in the 
Northern region more than 
23,500 jobs had been lost in the 
heavy manufacturing industry 
last year. 

Today (he went on) Swan 
Hunter is announcing massive 
redundancies and this is on top 
of those already announced in 
the shipbuilding, steel and en- 
gineering industries. 

When will she do something 
to save our industrial base? Or is 
she prepared to sit back and 
allow this country to become 
what Napoleon once described 

why regional aid is concentrated 
on that area in order to try to get 

extra help to go there.

The second oil replenishment 
vessel was brought forward 
especially for Swan Hunter, 
subject to price. They had the 
second of the Type 23 frigates, 
subject to price, and are able to 
bid fora further Type 23 frigate. 
So there are possibilities for 
Swan Hunter it they can manu- 
facture down to the price. 

•Later the Speaker, Me Bernard 
Weatherill. turned down an 

application by Mr Edward Gar- 
rett (Wallsend. Lab) for an 
emergency debate on the 
annoucement that Swan Hunter 
were to declare immediately 825 
employees redundant.

Mr Hard said if any additional 
powers were required, the Gov- 
ernment would not hesitate to 
introduce them. 

Mr Robert Key (Salisbury, Q 
said his constituents were angry 
and frightened. In seeking a 
solution it was essential to have 
a cooling-off period. He called 
for an independent inquiry to

It was important that the Salt 2

sened by bott the Soviet Union 
and the United States, Mrs 
Thatcher, the Prime Minister, 
said In the Commons. President 
Reagan was in fact observing 
Salt 2, she added, and leaving 
the door open for the Soviet 
Union to comply, too. 

She was replying to Mr Roy 
Hattersley, Deputy Leader of 
the Opposition, who said she 
was h ffwitKartng P]i (fii ||| by al- 
ways dancing to the President’s 
tune, an observation which Mrs 
Thatcher dismisse d as utter 

Mr Hattersley asked: What 
pressure does the Prime Min- 
ister propose to exert oa Presi- 
dent Reagan to persuade him not 
to abandon the Salt 2 agreement 
and thus jeopardize the pros- 
pects of an autumn summit? 
Mrs Thatcher We regard it as 
important that the Salt 2 agree- 
ment continue to be observed by 
both sides. When President 
Reagan gave warning that un- 
less the Soviet Union comp il ed 
with Salt 2 he Would make 
different arrangements from 
November, at the same time he 

dka m rtted two Poseidon sob- 
marines in agreement with Salt 
2. We wish it still to be r eg ar ded 
on both sides and hope It will 
continue to he s o. 

Mr Hattersley: Will she answer 
tie cmatin? (Cons e rv a tiv e 
shouts oC She did!) Does she 
believe that the President should 
abandon Salt 2, or that what I 
think she calls the Bassjaa case 
to answer fa itself a jos tific a tio n 
for abrogation? 

Mis Thatcher: He wffl never say 
anything about the Soviet Union 
- (Labour protests) - never, 
never, never. I make it dear I

to comply. 

Mr Hattersley: The House and 

the c mmtiy know perfectly well 
why she mil not give a straight 
answer to that qaestioo. • 

Why does she hnmifiafe her- 
self and this country by always 
itanriag to President Reagan's 
tone? Does she not think, n the 
matter of world peace, she has a 
duty to speak for this country 

rather than wait to be told what 
to say by the President of the 
United States? 

Mrs Thatcher: He fo taHring

Was it not a fair and just 
assessment of the cant and

with the events of Live Aid? 
Mrs Thatcher: There are 550

tion is not true. £550 million 
was given by the taxpayers 
through this Government m one 
year to Africa, both in bilateral 
and in multi-lateral aid. 

paid for by taxing the so-called 
rich. The sums simply did not 
add up. 

We need to continue (he said) 
the process of reducing the 
burden of taxation not as a 
soda] service but as a moral 
duty and an essential means of 
improving our national eco- 
nomic performance. 

Since the Government had 
come to office it bad lightened 
the burden of lax for those on 
the top of the income scale, 
where it approached confisca- 
tion. and on the bottom, where 
hardship was greatest, but or- 
dinary people paid 38 percent of 
every extra pound they earned, 
and that was too much. 

This was a moment of 
opportunity for British industry. 
Inflation had gone down, 
sharply. World markets were 
about the expand again as the 
benefits of the oil price fall 
began 10 flow through. Whether^ 
that opportunity was grasped 
successfully would depend on 
management ability to control 
unit labour costs — the achifies 
heel of industry. Improvement 
in Britain's labour costs would 
fodlitaie further reductions in 
interest rates. 

Opening the debate. Mr Roy 
Hattersley, chief Opposition 
spokesman on Treasury and 
economic affairs, moved an 
Opposition motion strongly 
condemning the Government's 
economic policies which had led 
to the highest ever level of 

He said that the Government 
had no strategy for the reduction 
of unemployment and precious 
link concern for the un- 

Government boasted about 
utstripping inflation. 
«, Government pleased 
(he asked), or is it sorry that 
wage increases had bounded 
away over the last two years? 

It was the people who re- 
ceived those increases to whom 
the Secreatary of State for 
Employment (Lord Young of 
Graffitam) was referring when 
he had said: "We have never 

said thatsmee June 1983 the 
economy had been growing at 3 
per cent a year, the fastest rate of 

S owth in the European 
immunity, inflation had 
fallen to 3 per cent, the number 
of jobs, despite what Mr 
Hattersley had said, had risen by 
almost one million, industrial 
investment was op fry 32 per 
cent, manufacturing productiv- 
ity up by 8^ percent, manufac- 
turing exports tgj by 19 percent, 
and manufacturing investment 
up by 31 percent 

The Government had weath-

way which would- not have been 
possible if it bad taken the 
advice of its critic; and aban-

who are m work." 

That statement had combined 
ignorance, callousness, cynicism . 
and stupidity in.equal measure. 

It was stupid because it did 
not take account of the feet that 
even the prosperous could not 
eqjoy the full fruits of their 
pro sp e ri ty in a society divided 
between employed and un- 
employed, rich and poor. 

unless the nation spent 
money now on rebuilding a 
dilapidated Britain, then in five, 
10 or 20 years' time, it would 
not be able to afford the 
escalating cost of deprivation.

Making a fool ofyourself in front of millions

Government cuts had led to 
prisons becoming “universi- 
ties of crime" with inmates 
spending their days in over- 
crowded cells plotting crimes 
and trafficking in drugs, pris- 
on governors and officers' 
representatives said yesterday. 

They described a vicious 
spiral of too many inmates 
and too few classes and work- 
shops, encouraging prisoners 
to commit more offences 
when they were released. 

Mr James Kaye, assistant 
secretary of the Prison Gov- 
ernors' Association, told the 
Commons' Education Select 
Committee of a prisoner who 
had for several years collected 
letters he could not read, 
because he did not want to 
admit be was illiterate. 

He said, during the com- 
mittee's inquiry into prison 
education, that prisons had 
become universities of crime, 
and added that the priority 
must be to teach inmates the 
three Rs. 

Many illiterate inmates 
were too embarrassed to go to 
their local social security of- 
fice on release. 

He blamed the closure of 
prison workshops, the recent 
sharp increase in overcrowd- 
ing and the shortage of prison 
staff for the collapse of the 
education and employment 
opportunities in prisons. 

He was supported by two 
officials of the prison gov- 
ernors' branch of the Society 
of Civil and Public Servants. 

The society said in written 

evidence that another 6.000 
prison officers were needed if 
overtime was to be cut. That 
contrasts with the recent re- 
port to the Home Office on 
shift systems, which conclud- 
ed that there was staff wastage 
of up to 20 per cent 
The society called for a law 
setting out positive and con- 
structive prison regimes. Mr

Last week Mr' peter Scott,

was identified as early as

tive Party, won £2400 against 
The Sunday Times ; and £500 
against Time Out. 

But Mr Justice Mann ruled 
that, in respect of his action 
against Time Out, he should 
not be awarded costs incurred 
after January 21. . 

On that date. Time Out had 
paid £501 into court in offer of 
settlement. The libel jury 
awarded Mr Howe only £500 
against the magazine, and so 
he did not qualify, under High 
Court Rules, for costs of that 
action incurred from the date 
of the payment-in.

aids stroke 

By Thomson Prentice 
Science Correspondent 
The courageous recovery 
from a stroke by actress 
Patricia Neal was offered as 
an incentive yesterday in a 
£2 mill ion campaign to help 
other sufferers. 

In Britain, about 125,000 
people a year are affected by 
stroke, of whom 70,000 die. 
The illness is the commonest 
of all fatal diseases after heart 
disease and cancer. 

Miss Neal, who suffered a 
stroke at the height of her 
Hollywood career 21 years 
ago, was badly disabled and 
unable to speak, but recovered 
cradnally with the help of 
British doctors and therapists. 

Yesterday, she returned to 
London from the United 
States to launch the National 
Stroke Campaign, on behalf of 
the Chest, Heart and Stroke 

“A stroke is like a power 
failure at heme. Everything is 
there but no thing works,” she 
told campaign organizers. "I 
was helped back to life and 
after six months with a volun- 
teer team, I was 80 per cent 

Miss Neal was invited to 
launch the campaign by Miss 
Valerie Eaton Griffith, who 
did most to help her recovery 1 . 
Miss Griffith founded the 
association's Volunteer Stroke 
Scheme and is deputy organiz- 
er of the campaign.

campaign, yesterday (Photograph: Peter Trievnor). 

in child 

The Child Poverty Action 
Group (CPAG1 launched a 
£300.000 appeal yesterday for 
new premises in London. 

Dr John Habgood. the 
Archbishop of York who is 
patron of the group’s twenty^ 
first anniversary appeal com- 
mittee, said that the number 
of families dependent on wel- 
fare benefits and living on or 
below the poverty line was 
increasing throughout Britain. 

“Yet. at a time when exper- 
tise and experience have never 
been so crucial, the CPAG is 
faced with the need to move 
from its premises with a 
peppercorn rent to buy or rent 
offices on the local market,” 
he said. 

A group spokesman said 
that up to £450,000 had been 
allocated for projects in the 
coming year, but £300,000 was 
needed to replace the premises 
it has rented since 1965. 

The latest government sta- 
tistics showed that nearly one 
million families with children 
were living on or below the 
supplementary benefit level in 
1981 and the number of 
children living in poverty had 
nearly doubled between 1978 
and 1981 to 500.000. 

“We are still waiting for the 
Government to release recent 
figures but we believe the 
number of families living on 
the poverty line has increased 
dramatically since 1981,” the 
spokesman said. 

SDP lawyers call for workers’ positive rights 

By Our Legal Affairs Correspondent 

Legislation to create a legal 
framework of positive rights 
for workers, indndiag die 
right to strike, was called for 
by the Social Democratic 
lawyers’ Association in a 
discussion paper published 
yesterday. The rights should 
include: the right to form 
onions and associations; to 

belong, or not, to such organi- 
zations; and to take action 
collectively in furtherance erf a 
trade dispute. But if the pro- 
posed rights were abused, 
those concerned should be 
liable to pay damages, the 
paper said. 

The paper called for laws 
that would aim to move away 

from “conflict-based industri- 
al relations” and to develop a 
“new spirit of co-opera tioar 
A legal framework of posi- 
tive rights would “replace the 
negatively framed legal immu- 
nities system” which not only 
pnt workers on the defensive 
but also “seems to change 
every time a significant case 

reaches the House of Lords”. 

Employers should be able to 
take “proportionate reciprocal 
action”, such as lockouts, and 
would be free to choose wheth- 
er to recognize unions. 

Arbitration would be a com- 
pulsory stage in the bargain- 
ing process in any indnstrial 

Union call 
for law to 

Employers “make a mock- 
ery” of industrial tribunal 
hearings when they ignore 
rulings to reinstate dismissed 
workers, a union congress was 
told yesterday. 

The Government was urged 
to introduce legislation forc- 
ing such employers to give 
workers their jobs back. 

Delegates of the General, 
Municipal, Boilermakers’ and 
Allied Trades Union ap- 
proved the motion at Scar- 

Mr Mike Kirby, of the 
Lancashire region's North- 
wich branch, who proposed it, 
said that the present law was 
unfair and unjust, allowing 
employers to avoid taking 
back workers who successfully 
challenged dismissal and to 
lake a chance on large 
amounts of compensation be- 
ing awarded against them. 

The congress also agreed to 
a motion for new health and 
safety-at-work legislation. 

Mr Andy Worth, from 
Goole, Humberside, who put 
the motion, claimed that more 
than 20,000 deaths a year in 
Britain could be identified as 
caused by work, although only 
a few could be put down to 
specific physical acts. 

He added that serious defi- 
ciencies in the present legisla- 
tion included failure to protect 
workers* health from “damag- 
ing and de-humanizing” con- 

It had also failed to provide 
all workers with a basic stan- 
dard of occupational health 
service funded by the employ- 
er, or to prevent a rise in the 
number of workers injured or 
killed since 1980. 

Approval was given to a 
motion calling on the union's 
senior officers to work with 
the Trades Union Congress to 
defeat proposals by the Health 
and Safety Executive which 
would “effectively deprive" 
workers of the executive's 

cards, and easier 
access to their money

fectively opened up a series of 
new battlefields. stretching 
from , foe sea at_Ouzai to the 
front line opposite the Chris-: 
tian Phalange near the Classi- 
cal Museum. 

The streets of west .Beirut 
were deserted except .fair gun- 
men, the shops and schools 
dosed, a -fog of brown smoke 
drifting across the. city from 
the Palestinian refugee camps 
where the conflict between 
Palestinian guerrillas mid Shia- 
militiamen was the.' original 
cause of the present violence.

Ever capable of finding a 
conspiracy behind every set- 
bark, Antal has itself claimed 
President' Gemayd of Leba- 
non as well as Mr Arafat as 
responsible for the bloodshed. 

The President, a Christian 
Maronite whose own fences 
include the Phalange, -is sup- 
posed — according to this 
extraordinary, theory — to 
have concerted plans for the 
overthrow of Arnal in con- 
junction with the Palestine 
Liberation Organization. 

Graphic evidence of Antal's 
views appeared in yesterday's 

morning edition of al-Harpqa, 
which favours the Shia militia. 
It carried a grotesque cartoon 
depicting bofo'Mr Arafat and 
President Gemayd sitting m a

Palestinians-!- are still keeping 
out of the street battles, the 
Morabiloim are drawing Shia 
strength away from the camps. 

Ama]'s own hostility has 
been increased by the murder 
of two of their military offi-

Hammoud and Mr AH Khalil

nuclear power station in Swe- 
den dose to Denmark. 

Mr Peter Walker, the Ener- 
gy Minister, said that he had 
always believed that all forms 
of energy should be reviewed 
in the light of .world events. 

The- EEC Commission had 
proposed before Chernobyl 
that nuctear power, which at 
present accounts for just over 
30 percent of EEC eleciricity 
consumption, should account 
for 40 percent by 1995. . 

. But- as energy ministers 
yesterday songht to formulate 
new energy guidelines, Den- 
mark, where anti-nuclear feel- 
ing is -strong, said that it was 
willing to “note" the Commis- 
sion objective but hot to 
include it in a Council of 
Ministers resolution, which 
has the force of law. 

The Danes objected to sev- 
eral references in the proposed 
guidelines to foe growing role 
of midear power in Europe as 
the share of hydrocarbons in 
dectricity production is re- 

But West Germany and 
France said the EEC had to 
take account of the de facto 
situation, in which this year 
nuclear power would account 
for an average 35 per cent of 
total EEC dectricity output. 

The energy ministers split 
into pro- and anti-nuclear 
lobbies when they met to 
shape a framework for EEC 
energy policy over foe next ten 
years. Britain, West Germany 
and France argued that 
midear energy was here to 
stay and had to be made safe 
and publicly acceptable. 

Denmark, Greece and and 
the Irish Republic demanded 
less reliance on nuclear energy. 

The Commission is to pro- 
duce a comprehensive analy- 
sis of the implications of 
Chernobyl next week for dis- 
cussion by EEC foreign minis- 
ters later this month. 

Brazil beef

From Oar Correspondent 

The ECC is export- 100,000 

tonnes of beef to Brazil, flout- 
ing a political commitment 
made by EEC Commissioner 
Claude Cheyssou not to export

The political £0-abead for

would provide a subsidy to cut

Disaster deaths rise to 25 

From Christopher Walker, Moscow 

Senior Soviet scientists said 
yesterday that the death toll 
from the Chernobyl disaster 
had now risen to 25, with a 
further 30 people iu a critical 
stale, suffering from radiation 

Mr Leonid Ilyin, head of a 
Moscow hospital treating 
many of the most serious 
cases, said that of the 299 
people reported to be suffering 
from acute radiation doses, 89 
had later been released. 

The new death toll of 25 was 
given b; Mr Yevgeny Chazov, 
a deputy Minister of Health, 
who said rhat 23 had died from 
radiation as well as the two 
killed in the initial explosion 
on April 26. Last week Dr 
Robert Gale, foe US bone 
marrow specialist, pet foe 
total number killed at 23. 

As foe straggle to neutralize 
the crippled Chernobyl reactor 
continued, the Soviet authori- 
ties disclosed that a number of 
the soldiers involved in foe 
hazardous rescue operation 
-were now being treated for 
radiation at a military hospital 
in Kiev, foe Ukrainian capital 

A report in yesterday’s edi- 
tion of Krasnaya Zvezda (Red 
Star), the armed forces news- 
paper, did not specify bow 
many soldiers were being 
treated, but said none was in a 
serious condition. 

Many aspects of foe costly 
rescue operation are now 
known to be under military 
control, with armoured cars

Protests at the construction of 
a nuclear power station in

Political wing of ETA 
legalized by court 
amid bomb campaign 

In the midst of ETA’s 
bombing campaign to disrupt 
tourism at Spanish resorts, the 
Supreme Court has handed 
down a judgment legalizing 
the so-called “people’s unity” 
coalition, the political wing of 
the Basque armed separatist 

The timing of the court's 
decision clearly had nothing to 
do with the series of bomb- 
ings, nor are ETA’s assistants 
on the Costa del Sol and 
elsewhere considered at all 
likely to stop now. 

The decision is a Now for 
the Socialist Government, and 
particularly for the Interior 
Ministry, which fought ac- 
tions through five lower courts 
before reaching the Supreme 
Court, with the aim of having 
the extreme left-wing nation- 
alist Herri Batasuna coalition 

The verdict may be a fillip 
for the coalition among 
Basque voters at the general 
election in 19 days’ time. 

From Richard Wigg, Madrid 

British tourists holidaying 
in southern Spain in ante of 
the ETA bombs were favour- 
ably compared by a senior 
Spanish Government official 
yesterday with United States 
tourists, who are staying away 
from Spain and the rest of 
Europe because of terrorism. 

“Unlike the Americans, the 
British are being magnifi- 
cent," he said. “Where they 
have had to leave their hotels 
to permit the police bomb 
disposal squad to go to work, 
they have reacted with good- 
will and humour.” 

Small bombs have gone offi 
causing no usuries but so far 
damaging four hotels, since 
ETA announced nine days ago 
that it was resuming last 
summer’s campaign to “sabo- 
tage the economic interests of 
the Spanish state”. 

The latest hotel was the 
four-star Atalaya Park at 
Estepona, near Marbdla. The 
bomb, placed at one of the 
entrances, went off while po- 

lice, alerted by a caller, were 
on the premises searching 

In three other hotels police 
defused firebombs before they 
went oflj each time having 
been alerted by anonymous 

In one case; in Malaga, ETA 
called bade after the police had 
foiled to locate the bomb and 
gave its precise position. 

The national police and the 
paramilitary Civil Guard are 
now patrolling the Costa del 

. The Socialist Government 
in 1 983 began seeking through 
the courts to get the “people’s 
unity” coalition banned on 
the grounds that the party’s 
statutes did not accept the 
1978 Spanish constitution or 
declare expressly that its 
members were Spaniards. 

■ But the Supreme Court 
found nothing in the party 
statutes to deprive citizens of a 
constitutional right to asso- 
ciate politically.

Swedish workers postpone strikes 

Stockholm — Massive in-

have cost the country millions 
of kroner in lost export orders, 
was postponed at the last

500,000 workers in the engi-

until Friday strikes by 17,000

including the Saab and Volvo

South Africa In crisis 

Pretoria asks EPG 
to have a last look 

By Nicholas Ashford, Diplomatic Correspondent 

The South African Govern- 
ment has written to the Com- 
monwealth Eminent Persons 
Group (EPG) urging it to 
make another visit to South 
Africa before rip-riding wheth- 
er or not to recommend the 
imposition of sanctions. 

But in view of last month’s 
South African raids against 
Botswana, Zambia and Zim- 
babwe it is unlikely that the 
seven-member group will 
agree to Pretoria’s request 

The publication in South 
Africa this week of & booklet 
defending Pretoria's riefiisal to 
iliate with the outlawed 
ican National Congress 
(ANC) seems certain to con- 
firm the view, held by a 
majority of the group, that 
South Africais not prepared to 
begin a dialogue with repre- 
sentative-black leaders, as the 
group had demanded. 

Tbe letter from Pretoria 
arrived yesterday at the Com- 
monwealth Secretariat in Lon- 
don, on the eve of the group’s 
meeting to complete a report 
on its six-month peace 

Its contents were being kept 

private and, because of the' 
secrecy which has surrounded^ 
the mission since it was set up* 
at the end of last year, officials'^ 
refused even to confirm its^' 
existence. ^ 

But it is understood that the > 
South Africans were carefru:; 
not to reject any of the': 
proposals the group left with • 
them when it was in South* 
Africa last month. Instead, * 
Pretoria-limited itself to point- * 
ing out some of the problems * 
the Commonwealth plair^ 
would present. ' ! •

‘licence to Harare 
kill” claim lion’s den 

From Michael Hornsby 

New security measures be- 
ing debated this week in the 
South African Parliament 
would give the police a “gov- 
ernment-approved licence to 
beat up and kill”, a member of 
the official Opposition in the 
House of Assembly, tbe white 
chamber, has declared. 

Tbe two measures are the 
Public Safety Amendment Bill 
and the Internal Security 
Amendment Bill. 

Tbe Public Safety Amend- 
ment Bill would empower the 
Minister of Law and Order, 
Mr Louis Le Grange, to 
proclaim any part of tbe 
country an “unrest area” and 
to take such measures as 
“appear to him to be necessary 
or expedient” in that area. 

The Internal Security Am- 
endment Bill would give a 
police officer oflieutenant-col- 
onel rank or above authority 
to order anyone to be held in 
preventive detention for up to 
180 days. 

An MP for the Progressive 
Federal Patty, the official 
Opposition, said that it 
amounted to an “official gov- 
ernment-approved licence to 
beat up and kill, a licence to 
organize vigilante groups, a 
licence to terrorize entire

Opponents of Chilean 
regime call for month 
of civil disobedience 

The National .Assembly of 
Civil Society, composed of a 
several organizations opposed 
to military rule in Chile, has 
called for a month of peaceful 
civil disobedience to end in a 
two-day general strike in early 
July if the military regime 
continues to ignore its de- 
mands for immediate political 
and economic change. 

Its president. Dr Juan Gon- 
zalez. called the threat an 
extremely serious matter, say- 
ing that member organiza- 
tions represented an estimated 
3.5 million to 4 million 

All of Chile's main profes- 
sional associations, academics 
and students, teachers, lorry 
owners, storekeepers and the 
two multiple union confedera- 
tions belong to the assembly, 
which was formed in a semi- 
clan destine meeting at the end 
of April. 

From r.ake Sagans, Santiago 

It then gave the military 
Government a month to re- 
spond to its demands for a 
return to democratic govern- 
ment, with full respect for 
human rights, and for eco- 
nomic policies which would 
deal with the problems of 
unemployment and indebted- 
ness that plague Chileans. 

“Instead of proposing a 
solution for the real problems 
of the majority, the Govern- 
ment has imposed a set of 
repressive, intimidating tech- 
niques which has especially 
affected poor people,” Dr 
Gonzalez said at a press 
conference this week. 

He said that the growing use 
of troops to suppress peaceful 
demonstrations was a 
sympton of the Government's 
warlike attitude to politics and 
could not go on. 

The National Assembly of 
Civil Society's national coun- 

cil, which comprises the presi- 
dents of member organiz- 
ations, has asked Chileans to 
boycott certain products 
which, they say, finance mis- 
information in television 

Chilean television is under 
tightening control by the mili- 
tary Government, and most 
coverage focuses on official 
Government statements. 

The Assembly also called 
for home owners to suspend 
payment of taxes and mou- 

lt announced that through- 
out June member organiza- 
tions will hold protests and 
other activities around their 
specific problems. 

University students are 
planning an indefinite nation- 
al strike to back their demands 
for an end to military rule on 
campus and off, to begin on 
June 16. 

Rebels welcome Duarte talks offer 

From John Carlin 
Mexico City 

Salvadorean rebel leaders 
have welcomed President 
Duane's latest, and surprising, 
offer of peace talks, but say 
they suspect his motives. 

Reacting to a proposal 
made in a speech on Sunday, 

rebel leaders outside El Salva- 
dor said they considered his 
new gesture to try to end the 
six-year civil war as positive. 

“But we wonder whether 
this a Duarte propaganda ploy 
to score points with the people 
at a critical moment for his 
government.” one of the polit- 

ical leaders of the Democratic 
Revolutionary Front (FDR) 
said in a telephone interview. | 

The Salvadorean President 
made clear on Sunday that 1 
any new dialogue would es-

Defence report 

paves the way 

for Australian 
forces revamp 

from Stephen Taylor, Sydney 

The long-awaiied Dibb Re- 
port - described by Canberra 
as the most comprehensive 
review of Australia's defences 
since the Second World War- 
bas reaffirmed priorities to 
make the country more self- 
reliant in the face of a poten- 
tial threat from the north. 

The report paves the way 
for a restructuring of the 
armed forces, based on three 

• That Australia will exert its 
military independence for 
1,000 nautical miles -around 
its coastline, but wifi, not

externally — for example, to a 
conflict in the Philip pine . 

• That surveillance over the 
northern horizon be acceler- 
ated and expanded. 

• That air and naval strike 
capability be sharpened. 

The lead-up to the tabling of 
the report in Parliament yes- 
terday was touched by the 
sensitivities of Indonesia and 
the United States.

Although a vehement attack 
on Australia in the Indonesian

agreements with Cantors still

states that Indonesia will not

Poll setback limits 
Ecuador options 
in balancing books 

Quito (Reuter) - The con- 
servative President Leon Feb- 
res Cordero of Ecuador feces 
increasing difficulty in impos- 
ing austerity on his oil-export- 
ing nation after successes by 
his opponents in mid-term 
elections to Congress. 

Bankers and diplomats say 
dial President Febres Cordero 
now feces the challenge of 
carrying out delicate negotia- 
tions with foreign creditors to 
secure foreign exchange ag- 
ainst the background of a 
hostile Congress. Ecuador is 
squeezed by low prices for oil, 
its main export. 

Returns from Sunday's 
polls show the centre-left and 
Marxist parties won SS.S per 
cent of the vote against 35. 5 
per cent for pro-government 
parties. Nine per cent went to 
neutral, centrist parties. 

The newly-elected deputies 
will take office in August, 
ending control of Congress by 
the pro-American Sen or Feb- 
res Cordero halfway through 
his four-year term. 

Sen or .Alvaro Saenz, a soci- 
ologist and bead of a Quito 
polling and research centre, 
said: “The opponents in Con- 
gress will harass the Govern- 
ment ai a time when it will try 

> to impose hard-line economic 
measures to grapple with an 
oil price fall.” 

The Ecuador Congress can 
impeach or oust ministers 
with a simple majority vote, 
and bankers say that the 
Finance Minister or other 
ministers could become tary 
gets for harassment. 

Austerity measures have 
been mild this year, with the 
Government trimming its 
Budget by only 5 per cent and 
imposing import tariff sur- 
charges of up to 30 per cent. 

But uncertainty about fu- 
ture measures prompted a 
devaluation of the national 
currency by about 5 per cent 
before trading in dollars was 
suspended on Thursday. 

Quito still glistens with 
prosperity created by an oil 
boom in the 1970s. 

But bankers and diplomats 
speculate that austerity op- 
tions include another devalua- 
tion and an increase in the 
price of petrol. 

Memories are fresh of the 
14 per cent petrol increase and 
21 per cent devaluation in 
March 1983 which sparked a 
general strike and protest in 
which one person died and 
more than 50 were wounded. 

Royal Navy joins Japanese in Pacific exercises 

From David Watts 

The Royal Navy and Japa- 
nese naval forces are exercis- 
ing together for the first time 
on a tow scale since the First 
World war in Rim of the 
Pacific CRimpac) exercises off 

The Royal Navy b taking 
part in Rhnpac *86 for the first 
time after the United States 
decided not to invite participa- 
tion in tins year's manoeuvres 
by the Royal New Zealand 
Navy after the breakdown of 

defence relations between 
Washington and Wellington 
over port visits by nudear- 
armed American ships. 

The Canadian and Austra- 
lian navies have also joined the 
largest participating force, 
from the US Navy. 

The last time the Royal 
Navy and the Japanese 
worked together on such a 
scale was when the Japanese 
Imperial Navy dispatched the 
cruisers Niiiaka and Tsushi- 
ma to the Cape of Good Hope 
in early 1917 at the request of 

Sir Edward Grey, the then 
Foreign Secretary. 

At that time, two flotillas of 
Japanese destroyers also were 
sent to assist the Royal Navy 
.in the Mediterranean. 

This time the Japanese and 
British fleets will again find 
themselves on the same side — 
most of the time. According to 
the Japanese press, American, 
British and Japanese fleets 
will join forces to relieve the 
“occupation” of Hawaii and to 
eliminate “enemy” forces 
along the way, from the US 
west coast 

The British force consists of 
HMS Beaver, a Type 22 
frigate; HMS Manchester, a 
Type 42 frigate; HMS Alacri- 
ty, a Type 21 frigate; and a 
nuclear submarine. 

The American fleet includes 
two nuclear-powered aircraft 
carriers, the 8 1,600- ton Carl 
Vinson and the smaller USS 
Enterprise, as well as nuclear- 
powered vessels of the US 
Third Fleet based in Ha wait 

Japan's contribution to the 
exercises is the hugest — eight 
surface vessels and a subma- 
rine —since it first took part in 

Rimpac manoeuvres in 1980. 

He Japanese flotilla, led by 
the destroyer Knrama, the 
flagship of Rear Admiral Torn 
Iwasawa, includes two 3,8 50- 
ton Tachikaze-class destroy- 
ers and five 2J)50-ton Uki- 
dass destroyers. 

All the Japanese ships 
apart from the Tacfaikaze 
vessels feature some British 
armament or other element of 
British naval technology. 

After Rimpac, the Japanese 
vessels are expected to sail on 
to Guam for further exercises. 

Peking and 
Tokyo join 
forces on 
trade loss 

From A Correspondent 

The largest trade meeting 
ever held between China and 
Japan ended in Peking at the 
weekend with both sides 
pledging to cut China's large 
deficit with Japan. 

The J 63-member Japanese 
delegation of government offi- 
cials and business leaders 
proposed to help China to 
increase its ability to export by 
building factories to produce 
export-quality goods. 

The 1 60-strong Chinese del- 
egation promised to improve 
the quality and packaging of 
Chinese products, to speed 
delivery and to develop new 

Japan’s economic and fi- 
nancial presence in China has 
become a matter of great 
concern to both countries. 

Late last year Chinese stu- 
dent demonstrations in Pe- 
king. Xian. Wuhan and 
Chengdu denounced “the sec- 
ond Japanese invasion of 
China” (the first being the 
Japanese occupation of Man- 
churia in the 1930s). 

Two billboards advertising 
Japanese goods near Tian- 
anmen Square in Peking were 
taken down, and imports of 
Japanese consumer goods, in- 
cluding automobiles were 
banned for two years. 

Most vexing to both sides 
has been China's large trade 
deficit with Japan. In 1985 
that deficit totalled $5.2 bil- 
lion (£3.5 billion). 

China, involved in its mas- 
sive modernization drive, 
cannot afford such trade im- 
balances; and the Japanese do 
not want to antagonize China 

Japanese businesses pro- 
posed 84 co-operation proj- 
ects. while the Chinese put 
forward some 100, involving 
mainly agriculture and petro- 
chemicals, garments and elec- 
trical machinery.

Gandhi Pakistan visit 
delayed by treaty texts 

From Hasan Akhtar, Islamabad 

A visit to Pakistan by the 
Indian Prime Minister, Mr 
Rajiv Gandhi, has been de- 
layed because the texts of two 
agreements between the conn- 
tries have not been completed, 
Pakistan's : Parliament was 
told yesterday. 

President Zia bad made a 
personal invitation to Mr 
Gandhi in December to visit 
Pakistan, when the agree- 
ments were expected to have 
been signed. 

Mr Mohammad Khan Jun- 
ejo, the Prime Minister, said 
at question time in the Na- 
tional Assembly that it was 
not known when Mr Gandhi 
wonkl now visit Pakistan. 

The lower House was told 
that the visit had been delayed 
because the texts had not been 
completed for a proposed 
-agreement that each other’s 
nuclear installations should 
not be attacked,- and another

al of a non-aggression pact 
with India’s suggestion of a 
treaty of peace, friendship and 

Official Indian statements 
reported in the press had 
indicated that Mr Gandhi was

of enthusiasm to pursue talks 
on normalisation of relations 
between the countries.

As the Basque 

makers un worried 
by the blasts 

f proof were needed 
Lhai the current bomb- 
ing campaign being 
waged along the Span- 
ish coast by the Basque 
separatist organization 
Eta is failing in its objective of 
undermining tourism, one 
might look no further than the 
Mr Cervantes J986 

This is not a literary' compe- 
tition for the authors of pica- 
resque novels. No. sir. It is an 
inicmationai trial of all that is 
raunchiest and most macho 
on the Costa del SoL and it 
was brought to a triumphant 
conclusion in the early hours 
of yesterday morning. 

To enter, it was necessary 
only to be an uninhibited male 
guest in the Hotel Cervantes 
in Torremolinos — the very 
establishment at which, only 
a week ago yesterday, Eta 
exploded its first bomb this 

“A bomb. yes. but such a 
little, little bomb", pleads 
Pedro Fagoaga. the 400-room 
four-star hotel's genial general 
manager, himself a Basque. 
“The damage is very, very 
small. It was six in the 
morning and nobody heard iL 
it was" — he searches for the 
word — “a ridiculous bomb." 

But a bomb it was. and the 
first of several small devices 
that up till yesterday Eta had 
planted along the Mediterra- 
nean coastline, which attracts 
six million visitors a year from 
Britain alone. It went off in a 
ceiling panel at the side of the 
hotel foyer, and more than 
made up for its failure to wake 
the guests by the shock waves 
it sent through the Spanish 
tourist industry. 

Yet they seemed to be 
subsiding. A local paper head- 
line on Mr Fagoaga's desk 
proclaimed: “The Eta bombs 
have not affected tourism", 
and quoted spokesmen for the 
British lour firms Thomson, 
Horizon and Intasun as re- 
porting no cancellations what- 
soever - yet 

Mr Fagoaga himself, now 
coming clean about his own 
bomb (at first the hotel insist- 
ed it was a “gas explosion"), is 
optimistic. “I don't think it’s 
going to have any effect at all", 
he said. “Look around. People 
are enjoying themselves.” 

People indeed were wander- 
ing about quite unconcerned, 
buying pints of lager, wearing 
funny hats, eating egg and 
chips and doing all the other 
things people go to Spain for. 

And when it came to the 
beloved evening moment - 
which might be termed hair- 
leuing-down-time — that is so 
much a part of this colourful 
coast and its traditions, people 
hung back not one jot. Though 

it must be said that the Mr 
Cervantes competition did 
not encourage hanging back. 

The organizers, the audi- 
ence and the finalists, having 
eaten dinner in the Don 
Quixote restaurant or the 
Sancho Panza cafeteria, as- 
sembled in the Dutcinea ball- 
room for the coming struggle, 
and when asked about bombs, 
professed themselves Not 

isplaying a com- 
plete Lack of 
bother, for in- 
stance, was 
Johnny, the 
Spanish master 
of ceremonies, a 44-year-old 
Catalan Lionel Blair lookalike 
with slim hips. Cuban heels 
and a ravaged yet still youthful 
face. If you think of the Mr 
Cervantes competition as the 
Eurovision Song Contest writ 
small — very small — then 
Johnny represented Katie 
Boyle, possessed of a similar 
fluency in theart of knowing a 
small number of words in a 
large number of languages. 
France! Un point! England! 
Two points! Espana! Tres 
puntos! Deutschland! Vier 
punte! Italia! Cinque punti! 

“Bombs, is nothin gT John- 
ny snorted. “It's a stupid 
something. Every year it's the 
same. I donno who says about 
it, here in Spain nobody know; 
is nothing, nothing, nothingT' 
Similarly — although per- 
haps less exuberantly — un- 

concerned were the audience, 
a small United Nations of 400 
holiday-makers, the Germans. 
Dutch. Belgians, Danes. Ita- 
lians and French all cool in 
their lightweight suits and the 
British relaxing as hard as they 
could in their tweed sports 
jackets and thick leather san- 
dals with thick woolly socks. 
(No, be fain the more adven- 
turous young Brits wear white 

And quite at their ease were 
the finalists in this supreme 
lest of manhood, two young 
Italians from Grassetto and 
Naples, both in estate agency, 
they said, and two gallant 
British lads. 19-year-old Kim 
Dark from Scarborough, who 
works in his father’s hotel, and 
34-year-old James Shaw from 
Letchworth. Herts, who works 
in suspended ceilings. 

Bombs? They too were Not 
Bothered. *Tm not bothered”, 
said James. “They won’t 
bomb this place twice, will 
they V Added Kim: “I’m 
having a great holiday.” 

As far as the Mr Cervantes 
1986 contest was concerned, 
their confidence was well 
founded. The first heat, in- 
volving half a minute of press- 
ups, passed off undisturbed, 
apart from the collapse of 
young Mr Clark half way 

Next, the bare-chested mus- 
cle-flexing went without a 
hitch. The miming to a rock 

'n' roll record was as com- 
pletely unhindered by interna- 
tional terrorism as the 
subsequent imitation by the 
four contestants of the noises 
of their five favourite 
animals.The final stage, with 
the candidates required to 
parade in their girlfriends’ 
clothes and make-up. was 
perfectly without untoward 
incident all the way through to 
the final strip-tease. 

But the thought did occur 
that if the Eta bomb, which 
exploded only a few yards 
from the scene of these pro- 
ceedings. had instead gone off 
during them and had perhaps 
been slightly larger, the cheers 
and laughter that accompa- 
nied the closing stages of the 
Mr Cervantes contest would 
have changed to something 
very differenLFour hundred 
people packed in a room, 
tasting fun. enjoying their 
hard-earned holiday: a fragile 
happiness in the world of the 
bomb planter. 

At the moment, though, 
while the Basque terrorists are 
giving telephone warnings of 
small bombs designed to bit 
property rather than people, 
British holiday-makers in 
Spain are still drinking lager, 
buying funny hats and eating 
egg and chips without a care in 
the world. 

There is, in fact, only one 
cloud on the horizon for us 
Brits down here in 
Torremolinos: the Mr Cervan- 
tes title went to Italy.

Soaring back 
to the future 

Fifty years after its brief and tragic 
heyday, the passenger airship is back 
and flying. George Hill took a trip 

The gatekeeper had a gleam 
in his eye. as he stood outside 
the tent in a muddy field near 
Watford, which serves as the 
air terminal for the world’s 
first passenger airship service 
in almost SO years. 

“I've been wanting to be 
involved in this since 1939!”, 
he hissed ecstatically, while 
passengers stumbled back 
across the rough turf alter a 
costly but exhilarating spin in 
the aerial cruise liner of 
yesterday — and perhaps 
tomorrow. The airship itself 
waited, like a tethered cloud, 
for its next load of passengers. 

Once, airships seemed to 
have the future on their side, 
majestically riding the skie s 
at a time when aeroplanes 
were spindly insects. For two 
generations, though, the tri- 
umph of the plane has been 
complete. But still a few 
dogged people persisted, 
ready to bear endless disap- 
pointments in their determi- 
nation to prove that the way 
to fly is to float. The public 
imaflp of airships is one of 
obsolescence, and of the spec- 
tacular tragedies that over- 
came the Hindenburg and the 
R-101. The new passenger 
service will, it is hoped, 
change that. 

Organized by Airship In- 
dustries, the passenger rides, 
which continue until June 1 5, 
are as much an exercise in 
public familiarization and 
reassurance as a commercial 
proposition. The ship's main 
role at present is as a flying 
billboard, while the sightsee- 
ing trips over central London 
serve to fill the Skyship's half- 
dozen seats. The service was 
fully booked almost as soon 
as it was announced. 

The Skyship 500 is a 
surprisingly lively flier, aim- 
ing its nose upwards at 
takeoff and climbing rapidly. 
Like a light plane, it sways in 
passing currents of air and 
banks as it turns. As a 
London sightseeing tour at 
£100 a nde it is rather 
expensive, but dull would .he . 
be of soul who would not be 
touched by the sight of agreat 
city from 1.000 feet on a fine 
day. Swinging over north 
London, we could see a black 

dog swimming in circles in a 
pond on Hampstead Heath, 
and the rabbit-hutch in my 
own back garden. 

Airship Industries has six 
of its Skvships flying or being 
built on four continents, and 
in partnership with Westing- 
house it has rendered fora US 
Navy contract to build a 
prototype early warning sur- 
veillance vessel. This airship 
would be almost 20 times the 
size of present craft, and 
would have a 35-ton payload. 

“The overall silhouette 
looks very like the airships of 
the past”. Roger Munk, de- 
signer-engineer of the new 
ships, says. “But 99 per cent 
of the ship involves totally 
new materials and concepts.” 
Computer controls, vector- 
ihrust propel lors and ad- 
vanced lightweight materials 
make possible large improve- 
ments in efficiency (the poly- 
carbonate envelope is gas- 
proofed internally with a 
layer of food- wrapping film). 

Inflammable hydrogen gas 
and a rigid metal structure — 
the two main safety weak- 
nesses of the old airships — 
have been eliminated from 
post-war craft, which have 
carried more than a million 
people since 1945 without a 
fatality. More than once, 
people have taken pot-shots 
at them from the ground, but 
the ships have cruised on. 

“The old ships often used 
to buckle and collapse in air 
turbulence", Munk says. 
“They could be several hun- 
dred yards long, but their 
metal frameworks weighed 
only about a hundred tons. 
Modem materials should al- 
low for ships twice as big as 
our US navy design without 
any need for a frame. A non- 
rigid ship can be designed to 
buckle in turbulence and 

It is impossible to hurry a 
balloon along too quickly. 
Skyships have a top speed of 
about 60 mph, and future' 
ships are unlikely to attain 
much more than !50 l “They 
•will be able to compete for 
jobs whqrc speed is not too 
important’’, says Munk, “and

power and spaciousness

Mr Mtv Mis, 


enqumei only, Reg 89460* 

What, no scorcher? 

After the dismal late spring we 
have just endured, one popular 
misconception has kept up 
some people's spirits: that 
after a cold winter we are doe 
for a good summer. Sadly this 
belief represents the triumph 
of hope over experience. 

Temperature records for 
central England since 1680 
show that the 30 coldest 
winters were followed by cool 
or very cool summers more 
than five times more often 
than by warm or very warm 
summers. So on the basis of 
the statistics we should expect 
bad summers following bad 

The assumption about being 
due for a good summer is not, 
however, a long-standing one. 
Folklore is virtually silent on 
what follows a cold winter. Far 
more attention is given to what 
happens in spring — witness 
the behaviour of the oak and 
the ash: 

If the oak is out before the ash. 

Twill be a summer of wet 
and splash ; 

But if the ash is before the 

Twill be a summer of fire 
and smoke. 

This attention to the 
progress of vegetation is hard- 
ly surprising. The timing of 
the emergence of leaf and 
blossom can vary by several 
weeks from year to year, so it 
is inevitable that it should be 
seen as a sign of things to 
come. This year the ash has 
emerged first. 

The relatively recent link 
between cold winters and 
warm summers could stem 
from the extremes of 1947. An 
exceptionally severe winter, 
witb tbe coldest Febrnary on 
record, was followed by possi- 
bly the wettest spring since 
1727 and (ben a Mazing 
summer. This seems to have 
reinforced the experience of 
1940 when another exception- 
ally coM winter was followed 
by a fine summer with a 
notably warm sunny Jane. 

A strange, wet winter 
and a miserable 
spring. Dare we hope 
for a hot summer? 

In fact 1947 is the ouly 
example in the past 300 years 
when a truly cold winter has 
been followed by an outstand- 
ingly warm summer. In any 
case last winter was not partic- 
ularly cold overalL Its combi- 
nation of a very mild 
December, wet January and 
frozen February has no dose 
equivalent in the past 300 
years. So what can we expect 
following such an odd winter 
and a dismal spring? 

Robert Ratdiffe, former 
bead of the Meteorological 
Office's long range forecast 
group, and his one-time col- 
league, Ned Davis, have been 

examining weather records for 
many years. Their analysis for 
this summer makes exceeding- 
ly gloomy reading: the odds 
are heavily in (avoir of a very 
cool summer. 

This forecast is supported 
by the recent abnormally low 
sea surface temperatures in 
the Atlantic, north of 40 
degrees N and amend the 
British Isles, and the patterns 
in the upper atmosphere. With 
this evidence they have gone 
oat on a limb and suggested 
that the summer of 1986 could 
be the worst since 1956 — 
another year that featured a 
bitter Febrnary and a miser- 
able April. 

The one ray of hope is that 
while the great majority of 
parallels involve outstandingly 
awful summers, a small minor- 
ity featured scorchers. So yon 
never know . . .

appreciation for traditional two-parent 
tainDyand a disapproval of homosexual- 
ity along with their O- and A4evels? 

This week the" House of Lords ap- 
proved an amendment to the Education 
Act which, for the first time fit Britain, 
prescribes that sex eAirati'iw. should 
inculcate "moral considerations and the 
value of family life.” For the conserva- 
tives who pressed for it, the amendment 
is a - first step on the path back to what 
they consider decent, healthy tradition- 
al values. 

Lord Buckmaster, aged 65, former 
diplomat and Arabist who was behind 
the amendment believes that sex educa- 
tion in many British schools fo“amoraI if 

not downright immoral " 

Schools should pass on an ideal of the 
family “in the traditional sense as a Kfo- 
giving force — not some of the modem 
variants which have come to be 

He admits that the number of children 
from one-parent feTniiiw? or broken 
homes — si n ce one in three nm ri'B^ yf 
now ends in divorce — makes thin g* 
difficult. "You have to be tolerant and 
flexible but still try and inculcate the idea 
of a stable family life.” 

. During discussion of the Education 

Act Lord Buckmaster ched . excerpts 
fro® sex ed ucation materials he consid- 
ered aberrant, including Makelt Happy* 
a well-known book by Jane Cousins 
which won the Times Education Supple- 
ment senior information book award. 

The book is a straightforward guide to 
sex, its pleasures, problems, and dangers. : 
Lord Buckmaster objected in particular 
to it s statement that incest was "not 
particularly p^cpronunonj especially- be- 
tween brothers and asters.” (The book 
also stresses that incest is considered a 
serious crime and teHs young people in 
this situation where to seek help.) 

He criticised other books which, -he 
said, taught that homosexual relation- 
ships wen: “in every way as right as other 
relationships” thar many marriages dp

choose to live together without 

'One family sitnation be found particu- 
larly distressing was depicted in a bode 
for children called Jenny Limes with Eric 
and Martin, about a little girl sp ending a 
weekend with her father and his homo- 
sexual lover. 

Nevertheless Lord Bnckmaster be- 
lieves thax once it becomes law the 
amendment will be a weapon parents can 
use, through the courts if necessary, to 
get schools to fall into line. 

- Much of his ammunition was provid- 
ed by Mrs.Valerie Riches of Family and 
Youth Concern, who finis sex education 
to increasing numbers of teenage preg- 


The Government is pressing schools to 
incorporate family virtues into 
sex lessons — but many teachers believe 
they have never really been absent 

nancies, illegitimacy, promiscuity, dis- 
ease and broken marriages. 

Sex education, she says, has become 
increasingly explicit and all-pervading, 
to the extent that a set bode for the 1986 
GCE and GCSE Biology, called Biology 
for Life, contains a chapter on sex, which 
she objects to particularly because it 

presents homosexuality as a form of 
sexual act which does not result in 
pregnancy— not, she says, a thing to tell 
14 to 15 year-olds. 

She hopes the amendment will force 
the Government to pay attention to what 
is being-taught in schools and to the fact 

that sex education has to be curtailed. 
The amendment is “a chink which can 
open up into a much better future.” 

Anyone who talks to bead teachers and 
education officials about sex education 
would not believe that they were living in 
the same country as Lord Buckmaster 
and Mrs Riches. 

"Most schools already give sex educa- 
tion in the context of morality and 
loving, caring relationships” says Mr 
Arthur Lingard, head teacher at 
Billericay Comprehensive School. “We 
are aware of the pressures young people 
are under and the damage they can do to 
themselves, psychologically and physi- 
cally. ” 

“We advise them against premarital 
sex and that what is important is not 
only getting married but staying 

How sex education is imparted in 
Britain varies from school to school. In 
most it has spread out of the biology class 
into courses on life skills, health educa- 
tion and other contexts in which 
personal relationships and responsibil- 
ities, not just the purely biological 
aspects, are discussed. 

“It goes through the whole 
curriculum,” says Mrs Anne Jones, head 
teacher of Cranford Community School, 
Hounslow. “We have some in science, 
some in Physical Education, some in 
Health Education, some in community 
relations, some in English — there are 
very few subjects it does not come into.” 

Mr David Whitbread, under-secretary 
for Education at the Association of 

County Councils, pointed out that sex 
education often started in primary 
school, with warnings about not going on 
with strangers and simple lessons on 
where babies come from. It develops as 
the pupils grow older “and by the time 
they are 16 or 17 years old you are talking 
about things like not treating the other 
sex as objects for brief moments of 

w Education officers stress that sex 
m -J education is discussed and 
f i agreed on in advance by bead 
M V teachers with the school gover- 
nors and parents. They find it 
hard to see what the amendment could 
possibly change. Teachers stress that they 
have to be very tactful in classes when 
there are all sorts of family situations. 
When one marriage in three ends in 
divorce they cannot tell children that 
only one family model is the right one. 

In the end the difference between the 
conservatives and the education world 
boils down to: what is morality? 

“We always keep everything against a 
moral backcloth. If you act morally you 
set everything in a context of love and 
stability and do not go round condemn- 
ing people,” says Mrs Jones. “Part of 
being moral is being tolerant about 
people in different life situations. 

“It's no deal really. The amendment 
wants it to be pul in a moral context and 
we totally support that. That's what 
we've been doing these past 25 years.''

Joseph Ettedgni: relentlessly coordinated, an affront to the disharmony ef one's own attire 

“I have always had to adapt 
mysdfj to change things depend- 
ing on the feeling of peopte coming 

into the shop. By about 1968 the 
road had become very tatty. 

“So I took the plunge and found 
a place in Kmghtsbridge. That was 
Kenzo. That shop was great — it 
became like a little dub. Now we 
always have that feeling- in- our 
shops - a good relationship with 
the clients and a friendly, family * 

' Again, Joseph was just ahead of 
the fashionable crowd in his 

choice of location. Knightsbridge 
usurped the King’s Road's role as 
the home of high cost, high 
fashion. He was to do the same in 
South- Molton Street and Sloane 
Street; now he has colonized the 
area west of Knightsbridge around 
Draycott Avenue. 

“I get a big kick out of being 
there first - seeing a dead street 
gradually come to life day by day. 
When Benetton and shops like 

that move in I begin to lose 
interest. I love the feeling of 
b uilding up something and stimu- 
lating the sw ff; the challenge and 
the pressure is very important 
“It's the same with the design of 
our places. Norman Foster did a 
beautiful job with our comer shop 
in Soane Street but everybody 
said we'd left the scaffolding in or 
something. Six months lain- ev- 
erybody was ripping off the ideas 

—that was the beginning ofhi-tech 
in shop design.” 

Now Joseph has 21 shops, two 
of them in New York, three in 
Paris and the rest, including two 
cafes, in London. He arranges 
them in small dusters in his key 
areas and. these days, they are aU 
designed by Eva Jiricna in a hard, 
faintly art deco style. They are 
characterized by a sparseness of 
furniture, fittings or ornament and 
relatively few lines of stock; “You 
should always have a bit of fresh 
air”, he says. “ It’s so important 
not to fed overcrowded." The 
dothes that are there are carefully 
arranged so that they always 

Eight years ago Joseph was 
approached by a factory owner in 
Stevenage who had been making 
school and army dothes and 
wanted to become a fashion 
supplier. Joseph took up the offer 
and became a designer overnight 

“It was not changing shapes — 
more a case of research into 
colour, quality and dentils It was 
never really like sitting down and 
designing things. This man just 
showed us a pullover and we said 
perhaps make h a little bit wider or 

The result is that Joseph is as 
much a designer as a retailer and 
wholesaling and exporting his own 
clothes has become a significant 
pari of his business. The influence 
of his total package has been 
enormous. The high street chain 
Next obviously owes its style of 
carefully coordinated and con- 
trolled lines to Joseph's 

He is reluctant to anatomize his 
customers but some kind of 
typical Joseph woman emerges 
from his talk. Her age is, perhaps, 
irrelevant, though it is almost 
certainly between 16 and 45, and 
she goes shopping two or three 
times in a six-month season. At 
his shop she may spend £250 on a 
few hems and. because of the 
coordination, these should give 
her a whole variety of different 
outfits with no “mistakes in the 

The number and fidelity of 
these women mean that it has all 
worked like a dream and given 
Joseph, at the age of 50, something 
dangerously like a big company. 
He has now been joined by bis two 
brothers. Franklin and Maurice, 
and rumours from the City strong- 
ly suggest that he is about to go 
public though, for the moment, he 
denies this. 

He is frightened at the whole 

prospect of size, of losing his 
small-scale thrills at pioneering in 
uncharted areas of the West End, 
then sitting back and watching the 
BMWs nose tentatively in after 


But, whatever happens, his 
impact is undeniable. He has been 
one of those designer-business- 
men who has turned fashion and 
the whole idea of a designer look 
into a way of life rather than 
simply a label on one's dothes. 

It is an extraordinary achieve- 
ment, but it is also a slightly 
chilling one. For his success is 
built upon the new and terrifying 
culture-less international middle 
class - a barbaric community of 
skiers, narcissists and hustlers — 
who have emerged hardened 
against the sentimentality of the 

It is very international 
now for everybody’ 

Sixties but determined to preserve 
that decade’s hedonism. 

It is appropriate that the deraci- 
nated Joseph, who now never 
returns to Morocco and whose two 
sons have become so English, 
should be the one to interpret the 
wishes of this tribe so accurately 
and with such unnerving fore- 

The barbarians want ample 
understated dothes in which the 
initiated can spot quality. They 
must he neither too classic nor too 
wild — the barbarians are nothing 
if not compromisers. 

As a tribe they, like Joseph, were 
not in the front of the queue when 
the senses of irony were handed 
out. As a result they love the 
slightly witless, sombre quality of 
his style. Disconcertingly, Joseph 
derives pleasure from this flavour- 
less diemde. 

“Let me tell you; for the type of 
people which is exactly the same 
everywhere. They like more or less 
the same things, they say the same 
tilings, there is very little differ- 
ence. It is very international now 
for everybody, I think.” 

He speaks, of course, of the 
ultimate hell of coordination 
where the people match as well as 
the dothes, where everything is 
fresh, airy and ordered in a way 
that it wasn’t, one suspects, in 
Casablanca, The problem is that 
for Joseph, this cloned world of 
the humourless and exquisitely 
dressed seems like paradise

Trial of 


Sir Roy Strong's temper, on 
short leash at the best of limes, has 
been set loose on Alexander 
Schouvaioff, keeper of the the 
theatre museum at the Victoria 
and Albert. Sir Roy, the V & A 
director, became incensed when, 
patrolling the building, be discov- 
ered that all theatre exhibits had 
been taken down in preparation 
for the collection's move to 
Covent Garden next year. In a 
memo, placed on ScbouvalofFs 

personal file. Sir Roy wrote that he 
had i 

not been informed and was 
"horrified to see the Galleries 
stripped." ShouvalofTs reply that 
the watercolour paintings would 
be harmed by further exposure to 
natural light cut little ice, and Sir 
Roy wrote back with a "formal 
warning”. Fed up, Schouvaioff 
suggested an end to the memo 
war "I suggest we meet on the 
front steps . . . You will recognize 
me by the white carnation 1 shall 
be wearing in my buttonhole.” 
History does not relate Sir Roy’s 
response but a new exhibition of 
photographs was soon on display 
(although taken off when the 
museum sprang another leak the 
other day.). A V & A spokesman 
assures me that all is again 
sweetness and light. 


An understanding of James Joyce 
is not helped by the issue of 
several new Penguin copies of 
Ulysses, his most celebrated work, 
with the first 19 pages missing. 

The opening page begins; "He 
nodded to himself i 

'as he drew his 
trousers off. . . ” Penguin were 
horrified when I told them of the 
omission, for they have been 
vaunting the edition as the version 
which JJ. himself would have 
wished to see, the original having 
been beset by countless errors by a 
French typesetter with an inad- 
equate knowledge of English. I 
fancy Joyce would have been 
tickled pink by the new ambigu- 
ities visited upon him by the 
publishing industry. 


The British parliamentary group 
that recently visited Moscow 
spent much of its time wondering 
why Lord Whitelaw, its leader, 
was receiving such exaggerated 
deference from his Soviet hosts. 
The explanation turned out to be 
Pravda's translation of Whitelaw’s 
official title; Lord President of the 
Privy Council. This had somehow 
turned out as “Secret Council”, 
which was enough to convince the 
Russians that they were being 
visited by the bead of MI5.

Secretary, George Younger, and 
the Prime Minister what new 
evidence has come to light since 
the army coroner first reported 
that the helicopter’s four crew 
were killed as a result of enemy 
action. As 1 wrote yesterday, the 
diaries of Narenda Sethi a, a 
lieutenant on board the submarine 
Conqueror, show the incident was 
the subject of discussion in the 
conflict zone at the time.

This Union must be for ever 

Northern Ireland Unionists have not 
been properly treated. The government 
did not consult them about the 
Hillsborough agreement in the way that 
nationalists were consulted by Dublin. 

It is not that a precedent was lacking. 
The 1978 devolution Acts provided for 
Scotland and Wales to be governed 
differently from the rest of the United 
Kingdom — provided at least 40 per 
cent of the electorate of each voted in fa- 
vour in a referendum. In each country 
the vote was less than 40 per cent and 
the Acts were never implemented. 

The Hillsborough agreement would 
not have been signed unless it was 
believed to be acceptable to the 
nationalist minority. It was; but it was 
not, and is not, acceptable to the 

Article 1 of the agreement affirms that 
an y c hang e in the status of Northern 
Ireland would come about only with the 
consent of a majority of its people. But 
the agreement itself has changed the 
status of Northern Ireland, without the 
consent of the majority, by providing 
“that the Irish Government will put 
forward views and proposals on matters 
relating to Northern Ireland”. 

The constitution of the Irish Republic 
lays claim to the territory of Northern 
Ireland. It is from the Republic that 
murderous assaults have been made on 
innocent people in the North, to which 
the guilty have returned and where, too 

by Ian Gow 

often, they have found sanctuary. Yet 
the Irish government has been granted 

special privilege on matters relating to 
the North. If the Scottish and Welsh 


precedents of a referendum were fol- 
lowed in Northern Ireland, the result 
would be an overwhelming “no”. 

The Hillsborough agreement was 
preceded by two statements by the 
Prime Minister in the Commons. On 
July 29, 1982, she said: “No commit- 
ment exists for Her Majesty’s Govern- 
ment to consult the Irish government on 
matters affecting Northern Ireland.” 
And on May 17, 1984: “The constitu- 
tional future of Northern Ireland is a 
matter for Northern Ireland and this 
Parliament and for no one else”. 

Before November 15, 1985, foe 
elected representatives of foe majority 
in Northern Ireland had made it plain to 
foe British government that foe signing 
of an agreement on foe lines of foe 
frequent leaks would be unacceptable to 
foe majority. That advice was not 
heeded. The position of the elected 
constitutional leaders was undermined. 
The agreement has played into foe 
hands of the para-militaries, mas- 
querading under foe self-appointed title 
of “loyalists”. 

In Northern Ireland some voices are 

George Graham on an opportunity that will not be repeated 

The proposals for state secondary 
schools set out so clearly by the 
Audit Commission for Local 
Authorities are among the most 
politically sensitive lying in 
Kenneth Baker’s mountainous in- 
tray. The commission has taken a 
hardheaded look at the schools' 
surplus capacity. It argues that the 
cost of maintaining redundant 
places within a limited budget — 
not to mention the effect on 
morale and overall standards of 
unpopular, half-empty schools — 
would rule out improvements in 
education. It could negate in the 
classroom the measures to im- 
prove teaching standards which 
Sir Keith Joseph battled with the 
teachers to introduce. 

The commission grasps the 
nettle of closures and urges local 
authorities to resist the inevitable 
local objections. It wants central 
government to assist in allocating 
the extra £1 billion for reorganiza- 
tion rather than resisting change, 
as the present grant system might 
do. And h concludes that time is 
running out to redirect resources 
into better education. This plan 
looks sensible enough, but the 
need for the extra money could 
ring political alarm bells. 

Given current public unhappi- 
ness about education, it does not 
need much imagination to work 
out how a plan to improve 
standards by shutting the equiva- 
lent of LOGO schools would be 
received. Yet there is a deeper 
dilemma underlying government 
policies towards both education 
and health that has made it more 
difficult to pursue long-term strat- 
egies commanding public support. 

A government temperamentally 
attracted to privatization long ago 
accepted that the public demands 
education and health systems 
financed by taxation rather than 
full payment at time of use: Few 
see great injustice in some driving 
Rolls-Royces while others struggle 
to afford a bicycle, provided a 
person's value is not linked to 
wealth. But many do fed that birth 
should not determine educational 
opportunity, and that good medi- 
cal care in illness should extend to 
alL These are healthy common 
values that help hold communities 
together. Few would suppose that 
national health or education ser- 
vices offer equality, but they can 
offer a reasonably fair deal to alL 
By comparison with other ad- 
vanced industrial countries, Brit- 
ain is already a low spender on 
both health and education. 

Yet the government is also 
committed to cutting the burden 
of public spending and attacking 
waste. Education and health are 
prime offenders. Indeed, tbe argu- 
ment, now generally accepted that 
public sector management of 
production has a built-in tendency 
to be inefficient, applies a fortiori 
to these sectors, particularly in 
Britain. Control and finance are 
split between central and local 
bodies and line management is in 
the hands of professionals who 
resent outside interference. 
Money thrown at these services 

How the axe 
could rebuild 

stands little chance of emerging 
intact at the other end in better 
standards for the public. 

Government has resisted think- 
ing through this apparently intrac- 
table dilemma. As a result, it has 
been trying to ride two horses, 
advancing at a measured trot to 
improve services but holding a 
tight financial rein to jerk manage- 
ment into greater efficiency. At the 
same time it has encouraged 
private health and education in a 
half-hearted way, malting no im- 
pact on public spending while 
encouraging the suspicion that it 
envisages two standards, only the 
basic minimum being provided by 
the state. The political result is 

Yet resolving this long-term 
dilemma might well achieve the 
government's aims and replace 
the present political cost with 
benefits. The need to finance 
through taxation or to set and vet 
standards centrally does not imply 
that the state itself should provide 
and manage services. Nor need it 
preclude elements of consumer 
choice or competition between 
producers to improve standards 
and efficiency. Only peripheral 
gestures on ancillary services such 
as cleaning have been made in this 
direction — again a half-cock pol- 
icy that has seemed ideological, 
had little effect yet achieved 
maximum political aggravation. 

The current surplus capacity in 
secondary education could pro- 
vide just the slack m the system 
required to go much fester in this 
direction, in terms iff parental 

choice, matching teachers’ in- 
dependence to financial res- 
ponsibility, or conducting a 
substantial experiment in 
contracting out state educational 
provision. The transitional costs 
need not be high. The dividend in 
popularity might be greaL 

The idea of contracting out 
education is not new, ' revolu- 
tionary or particularly capitalist 
The non-profit direct grant 
schools, run independently by co- 
operation between teachers and 
governors (who usually interfered 
little educationally beyond the 
selection of headteachers) were a 
successful and competitive ele- 
ment of state education for 30 
years. They were abolished be- 
cause of dislike of the principle of 
relection, as a by-product of 
abolition of grammar schools, not 
for any objection to the principle, 
of independence. (Though, as so 
often, a socialist measure to 
achieve equality, by pushing many 
direct grant schools into the 
paying sector, merely consolidated 

It can only be guessed whether 
this sector could rapidly be re- 
vived to achieve new purposes 
(specialist technical, religious, eth- 
nic minority or academic educa- 
tion for example), by leasing out 
fully surplus or half-empty state 
schools. But old foundations are 
still in existence. The wealthy 
continue to “found” in higher 
education. And different 
combinations of parents, local 
businessmen and trades councils, 

big companies, trade unions and 
church congregations might very 
well wish to be involved. For these 
founders would not be charities 
aiming to pay for education, but 
sponsors or guarantors of starting 
costs and long-term investment 

Both parents -and education 
authorities would be customers of 
this revived sector. Authorities 
could impose whatever conditions 
of cost or curriculum or character 
of schooling they wished if they 
were to pay for education at foe 
schools. Parents could choose, by 
whatever method, between dif- 
ferent kinds of education within 
the different parameters that 
would be set by different demo- 
cratic paying authorities. 

The existence of surplus {daces 
for a transitional period, plus tbe 
option of leasing out schools, 
woukl greatly reduce the bur- 
eaucratic objection that full parent 
choice would leave popular 
schools crammed to overflowing 
while the unpopular woe left to 
sink into a lingering death. The 
opportunity wiD not come again. 

Changes on these lines are 
evidently much more difficult in 
the health service. Core hospitals 
in a national system must provide 
open-ended services quite dif- 
ferent from those offered by 
private hospitals. There are, how- 
ever, already elements of con- 
tracted out provision and con- 
sumer choice in foe generally 
successful family doctor service. 
Enterprising GFs also played an 
important role in the cottage 
hospitals that have been closed, to 
public dismay, in resource re- 
allocation. Here at last is a basis 
fora new approach. - 

If health and education were 
successfully developed in this way, 
they would in foe long run tend 
unavoidably to take a higher 
proportion of the national income 
financed through taxation. Public 
opinion has not yet come to terms 
with this. But it would be money 
spent more efficiently on what 
people want

Union, to be launched today. 


He was sprightly, impatient with 
committee work, handsome in the 
manner of communist heroes — 
the kind who announce on red, 
three-yard-high posters: “Forward 
into the future comrades” — his 
public words harder than his 
private, a Roman Catholic who 
would squeeze into a suit on 
Sundays. That is how I remember 
Zbigniew Bujak, die Warsaw 
Solidarity leader who was arrested 
at the weekend after almost five 
years on the run. Bujak, who in tbe 
winter of 1981 would stride in and 
out of the union headquarters in 
Mokotow Street, listening, talking 
and deciding on the next move in 
the days when nothing stood still. 

On December 13 of that year, 
the night martial law was im- 
posed. tbe riot police and secret 
agents arrested the Solidarity lead- 
ers; Bujak, taking advantage of the 
confusion, slipped away. My next 
glimpse of the man who bad 
become Solidarity’s effective lead- 
er was on a snippet of film 
smuggled to and broadcast in the 
West. He had put on weight, wore 
a comical lopsided wig the colour 
and cut of Diana Dors' hairstyle 
and confessed in the film that be 
changed apartments every night to 
avoid arrest. Messages to the other 
fugitive leaders were passed on 

edible paper: he demonstrated, 
chewing carefully the latest 
Solidarity communique. 

Nothing illustrates better the 
transition of Solidarity from its 
legal, above ground existence to its 
outlawed form than the decline of 
the 31 -year-old ex-paratrooper 
and factory worker who is Zbig- 
niew Bujak. He now frees a long 
prison sentence; perhaps, depend- 
ing on the charges, even death. 

Has his arrest crippled the 
underground opposition to tbe 
Polish government? Can Solidar- 
ity survive as an illegal organiza- 
tion without the romantic figures 
who inspire the young to risk 
heavy jail sentences? Bujak, 
though not tbe first of Solidarity's 
leaders to be arrested, is the most 
important. The Polish authorities 
have declared for years that 
Solidarity is no longer a political 
force. They point to the poor 
response to Bujak’s call for a 
general strike, for protests against 
food price rises and a bovcott of 
parliamentary elections. Opinion 
poll figures gathered and pre- 
sented by the government claim 
that only about 5 per cent of Poles 
oppose the system. 

Even so Bujak was an 
embarrassment How could the 
most wanted man in a communist 
state elude the police for so long? 

The answer is that he and others 
on the run were sustained by a 
catacomb society. His fake papers, 
his transport, money, shelter and 
medical treatment came from 
Solidarity sympathizers, those 
who do not register their views 
with official opinion pollsters. 

For the government, the arrest 
of Bujak ends an awkward anom- 
aly: it can at last declare theend of 
Solidarity. With a Communist 
Party congress at the end of June, 
the timing is good. It ends the 
suspicion, by General JaruzeisIcPs 
hardline critics, that the authori- 
ties are quietly tolerant of the 
opposition. For Solidarity, the 
arrest is a severe blow but not a fe- 
tal one. It is a harsh sentiment but 
Bujak was b eginning to outlive his 
role in Solidarity. His value to 
dissidents was to adapt the meth- 
ods of the legally registered union 
to the diffuse movement that was 
left after the imposition of martial 
law. From the start he urged 
Solidarity members to boycott 
rather than infiltrate state institu- 
tions, to create fund-raising net- 
works in factories, to lex 
demonstrations form naturally 
from church congregations. 

Tbe Pope's visit in 19S3, the 
demoralizing effect of an eco- 
nomic crisis, police violence and 
the tightening of the penal code, 

even a degree of acceptance of the 
authorities and, quite. simply, the 
passage of time put an end to 
Solidarity as a mass political 
organization... It is no longer 
capable of influencing govern- 
ment policy through street protest 
Instead it has become an alter- 
native information and publishing 
network on an enormous scale. - 
News bulletins, discussion pa- 
pers, intellectual journals, novels,' 
historical works flow off the 
clandestine presses and are widely 
read; every arrest, every sacking of 
a Solidarity supporter is chron- 
icled somewhere. The point re- 
inforced by critical theatre per- 
formances, lectures and seminars, 
is to keep alive a set of values, an 
idealistic code that makes it easier 
for Poles to refuse to accept a 
reduction in holiday pay or to 
tolerate party privilege or favour-: 
itism. This is what remains of 
Solidarity, six years after its birth, 
and it is far more valuable — 
representing a permanent change 
in .the nature of the communist 
system. This form of Solidarity 
does not need leaders, even 
swashbucklers like Bujak; it needs, 
spokesmen — which it has in Lech 
Walesa and many others — and it 
needs, above all, stamina.

.The church’s involvement with 
current political issues has gen- 
. erated a sharply divisive debate. 
Controversial issues such as 
nuclear weapons, liberation theol- 
ogy and apartheid lave polarized 
pundits and public: opinion. We 
need 1 clear grade us. 

Christians who recognize „ that 
the command to love our neigh- 
bour as we love ourselves must 
extend beyond personal conduct- 
are also aware of two unresolved 
and related questions: (a) what are 
the effective limits of private and 
voluntary effort and (b) does being 
.a Christian involve comment on 
political issues? 

A realization that some prob- 
lems arc too vast to be- taoded 
effectively ' except . by public 
authorities leads us to. ask whether 
there can be a distinctively Chris- 
tian attitude in {HiUic.affeus.This 
is not a matter of support for any 
political party. Since all parties are 
coalitions of a variety of interests, 
Christians can sincerely differ in 
tbefrpolftical allegiance: Rather it 
is a matter of taking a stand on 
certain issues winch raise ones- . 
tionsof morality, justice or human " 

Many devout believers would 
aigue that to suggest a link 
between private-belief and public 
affairs is illegitimate. They pointy 
out, rightly, that Jesus showed - 
considerable ingenuity in avoiding 
being trapped into taking a politi- 
cal stance, distinguishing .dearly

If like the present Pope, we 
understantipau&s to be “prudent 
concern for the -common good”, 
then the' necessity of .a. link 
between Christian frith and politi- 
cal concern becomes evident 
It is hnportaht to be dear that 

Others believe with equal for- Christian sodal principles, such as 

vour that Christian love for others 
necessarily entails concern for 
their just treatment and that 
Christians, as individuals and 
groups, and . occasionally the 
Church itself must press public 
authorities on moral mid justice 
issues; ■ 

When this is done, as in the 
recent Church of England report 
on Faith In The City, the Church 
is liable to criticism on two fronts; 
some alleging that its recom- 
mendations are timid and ineffec- 
tive, others seeing it as “Marxist 
theology”, indicating- that they 
understand neither. 

Elsewhere, especially in Latin 
America, some proponents of 
"liberation theology” have openly 
emlKaced Marxism, seeing in it. a 
set of analytical tools to enable 
them to understand the roofs of 
the problems besetting their soci- 
ety. The Vatican has become so 
concerned about this trend that it 
has warned that uncritical borrow- 
ing from Marxism is incompatible 
with Christianity, since Marxist 
analysis' and r the totalitarian re- 
gimes . to . which j^. leads are 
inseparable. . . . . - 
More recently, the Vatican has : 
set out the orthodox Christian 
understanding of such terms as 
"freedom” and “liberation.” In 
doing so, it has drawn on a 
tradition of social -thought and ! 
teaching developed by the Roman -. 
Catholic Church over the centu- 
ries. ••

Have bad polls given the 
Government the vapours? 
How else, to explain die 
extraordinary presentation of 
the Government's concerns in 
the House of Lords on Mon- 
day night when it introduced a 
hasty clause on sex education 
with scant concern for context 
or consequence. 

A. month ago the Education. 
Bill 1986 was a welcome 
measure. It tipped, a little, the 
balance in the governance of 
schools towards the lay repre- 
sentatives. Among them it 
enhanced, a vary little, the 
opportunity available to par- 
ents with children at a school 
to take part in discussions 
about school organization. 
The bill had a focus. Last week 
it became a Christmas tree 
breathlessly festooned with 
irrelevant bits and pieces. 

Until now the Government 
has shied away from writing an 
. agendaof what the Americans 
call “social issues", meaning 
junctures of public policy and 
personal belief such as abor- 
tion or die teaching of religion 
and morality m State-sup- 
ported schools. But, within 
education, there have for years 
been advocates of changes in 
the 1944 Education Act and its 
short blit specific injunctions 
to daily worship and religious 
education. The Act pre- 
supposes a Christian England 
and . Wales which the figures 
for Church attendance long 

ago put in doubt A dis- 
passionate review of the- Act 
might be an occasion for 
reflection on the schools* job 
in moral education. 

Sir Keith Joseph m his well- 
intentioned but woolly way 
suggested that schools should 
take more seriously their role 
in the transmission of values 
he prizes and which, in- 
cidentally, may be conducive 
to the country’s economic 
recovery. But Sir Keith, a 
scholar, believed those values 
would enlighten teachers im- 
manency, particularly if they 
read certain great books. 

The Lady Hooper, speaking 
it must be assumed for Sir 
Keith’s successor, was more 
ambitious. By law, teachers are 
to extol “family fife" in teach- 
ing their charges about the 
facts of life. A teacher who 
moved from the reproductive 
system of the school rabbit to 
human anatomy without at 
least a detour through holy 
matrimony would be guilty of 
an offence. 

A problem arises because 
one of the facts of many 
people's lives is that of dis- 
soluble marriage. The “tra- 
ditional values” that once 
united the vast majority of 
citizens are now being chal- 
lenged both theoretically and 
in the practice of everyday. So 
this amendment to the Educa- 
tion Bill is wrong, but not 
because its subject matter is 


It seems to be the general 
consensus of the police and 
. fire authorities that foe fire at 
the News International print 
warehouse in Deptford was a 
case of deliberate and well- 
planned arson. It destroyed 
plant, equipment and news- 
print worth in total approxi- 
mately £7 milfian. The idctmu 
of this crime wa$,.as£<> often, 
innocent bystanders - in the 
form of News International's 
customers, mainly provincial 
newspapers whose newsprint 
was destroyed, and their insur- 
ance companies. It is only by 
good fortune that nobody was 
killed or injured in the blaze. 

Such an event — involving a 
serious crime, major damage 
and risk to fife — would be 
noteworthy in any circum- 
stances. But the exceptional 
attention it has received in 
newspaper headlines and tele- 
vision news can be traced to 
the industrial dispute between 
News International and the 
printing unions. Such atten- 
tion reflects the professional 
judgment of journalists and 
hews organisations un- 
involved in the dispute that, 
although no-one has been 
arrested or charged with arson, 
there is probably some connec- 
tion between Wapping and the 
Deptford fire. 

: The two printing unions, 
SOGAT and the NGA* have 
firmly disavowed any such 
link. And ■ unless evidence 
comes to light that plainly 

establishes such a link, they 
have every right to do so. But 
the lesser evidence required to 
justify a reasonable surmise 
that file arson was the work of 
people sympathetic to the 
cause of the print unions is not 
hard to find. 

The, demonstrations 
mounted by the unions out- 
side Wapping have frequently 
degenerated into violent riots. 
If some of the most violent 
demonstrators were not union 
members, the unions must 
nonetheless take some 
responsibility since they have 
welcomed the support of out- 
side sympathisers. 

They have also published 
picketing newletters which 
contained the phone numbers 
and addresses of Wapping 
“scabs”. That surely implies 
the threat of harrassment, if 
not worse. Worse has, of 
course, sometimes occurred 
with physical attacks on peo- 
ple coming into work, not to 
mention unremitting verbal 
abuse. And News Inter- 
national and companies deal- 
ing with it have had their 
premises attacked because of 
the dispute. 

The burning of the Deptford 
warehouse fits all too neatly 
into this pattern of violence 
and anarchy which is the work 
of people, whether 
printworkers or political 
sympathisers, who proclaim 
their sympathy for the unions* 
cause and which the printing 

unions have not strenuously 

It also serves to justify, if 
justification were needed, the 
famous barbed wire of the 
Wapping plant When critics 
in file unions declare romanti- 
cally that a good newspaper 
cannot be produced “in prison 
conditions- , they should per- 
haps be reminded that in this 
case the guards and the bar- 
riersexist to keep the criminals 
out rather than in. What they 
would do if they were to gain 
entry in the absence of effec- 
tive security has been dem- 
onstrated very plainly — first 
by the violent riots most 
Saturday nights at Wapping 
and now by the Deptford fire. 

Nothing suggests, of course, 
that the unions were or would 
be involved in this crime. On 
the contrary, it was probably 
the last desperate throw of 
hard-line extremists, whether 
in the union or out of it, who 
strongly oppose the proposed 
settlement of the dispute, any 
ballot which might possibly 
ratify such a settlement, and 
any union leader who, by not 
resisting it to the limit, de- 
clares himself or herself a 
“traitor”. The arsonists are the 
enemies of Miss Brenda Dean 
and the unions* ordinary 
members just as surely as they 
are of News International. But 
the unions* organisers do not 
always seem to be aware of the 
fact, nor of the perils of 
accepting help from any quar- 


Two contradictory omen® ush- 
ered in Mrs Corazon Aquino's 
first hundred days as President 
of the Philippines. The first 
represented a promise ful- 
filled: the opening meeting of 
the constitutional commission 
intended to- restore the founda- 
tions of democracy. The sec- 
. ond .tt a protest march by 
supporters of former President 
Marcos which was disposed 
by tear gas and police trun- 
cheons — revealed the evo’- 
. present threat to Mrs Aquino’s 

The coincidence of these 
two events added pertinence 
to Mrs Aquino’s call to the 
commission to complete its 
work within three months. For 
the longer the Philippines is 
without a constitution, the 
more vulnerable Mrs Aquino's 
leadership becomes: to accusa- 
tions that the new government ; 
too needs the trappings of 
dictatorship, and to trepida- 
tion on the part of the military 
that civilian democracy is no 
solution to tlte Philippines* 
pressing difficulties. 

Already, cracks have ap- 
peared in the coalition of anti- 
Marcos interests which 
brought Corazon Aquino . to . 
power. The new President has 
had w deny rumours erf fac- 
tionalism, and many of the — 
largely unrealistic — hopes of 
wbai material improvements 
the Aquino leadership; could i;„ 
achieve have . been. dis^ 

appointed. The rapid approval 
of a new Constitution, fol- 
lowed by new elections in 
seven months* time would be 
one way — perhaps the only 
way — for the leadership to 
regain something approaching 
the level of popular support it 
once enjoyed. 

* The constitutional commis- 
sion itself has the potential to 
heal some of the growing rifts. 
It has been well chosen, with 
an appropriate/ Weighting of 
. lawyers and -scholars, but it 
also accommodates supporters 
of the former President, and 
Roman Catholic as wdl as 
Muslim clergy. So broad a 
representation. affords the 
hope that the majority in the 
Philippines, that elected Mrs 
Aquino President will -accept 
the new constitution and so 
leave extremes of opinion on 
themargin. - 

- As the commission pursues 
Hs discussions, however, the 
leadership wffl need to steer 
clear of points of conflict that 
could defeat the constitutional 
objective. At home, these in- 
clude Mrs Aquino’s desire to 
bring about a ceasefire with the 
communist • insurgents, a de- 
sire treated with some sus- 
picion by the military on the 
grounds that it might involve 
unacceptable compromises.

Abroad, the relationship be- 
tween the Aquino government 
and the United States — whose 
long-drawn out support for 
President Marcos still arouses 
resentment among Mrs 
Aquino's followers — has not 
yet been resolved. Some pf her 
supporters find it hard to 
reconcile the nationalist 
aspirations embodied in the 
“People’s Power" of Mrs 
Aquino with the pledge she has 
given to the United States to 
keep the agreement on the US 
, military bases and her promise 
not to default on foreign debt 

The .visit to Manila last 
month by the US Secretary of 
State, Georce Shultz, revealed 
elements of disagreement, and 
Mrs Aquino has been dis- 
appointed by the only mod- 
erate increase in US aid for her 
indebted country. Above all 
however, she and her. min- 
isters appear to resent what 
they perceive as scepticism in 
the US administration about 
. the permanence of the present 
government in the Phil- 
ippines. What they may not 
appreciate is that the best way 
of dispelling this would be the 
expeditious drafting and ap- ■

From the Parliamentary Under 
Secretary of State, Home " Office 
Sir, No one would wish to quarrel 
with Senator Kerry’s claim in his 
article (June 2) on the United 
Kingdom/United States Supple- 
mentary Extradition Treaty that 
he and his colleagues on the 
Senate Foreign Relations 
Committee have a special duty to 
weigh proposed agreements with 
other nations very carefully. But I 
suggest that he also has an equal 
duty to ensure that he has gathered 
all the relevant facts. Sadly his 
article shows a number of gaps 
and misconceptions. 

No one — except terrorists and 
their apologists — should be 
satisfied with an extradition 
arrangement under which people 
accused of attempted muider, 
wounding and firearms offences 
have been able to avoid extra- 
dition by claiming the political 
offence exception. The existing 
safeguards in the present Extra- 
dition Treaty will remain. These 
include the rule that extradition 
will be allowed only in respect of 
conduct which is an offence in 
both countries. 

Moreover, in respect of offences 
generally, the prohibition on 
extradition for pqliticaJ offences 
will also remain. The only 
substantial difference will be that 
people accused or convicted of 
serious offences of violence (the 
offences are listed for all to see) 

University ratings 

From Professor RD. Keynes, FRS, 
and Professor /. M. Glynn. FRS 
Sir, Up and down the country, 
academics will have been irritated 
by what (hey feel to be incorrect 
assessments, fry the UGC of their 
departments’ distinction in re- 

It may comfort them to know 
that the Cambridge Physiological 
Laboratory, which has eight FRSs 
on its staff (as well as two retired 
Nobel prizewinners still continu- 
ing their research), and which has 
been responsible for a number of 
major advances in physiology, 
including the work of R. G. 
Edwards that led to test-tube 
babies, has been classified by the 
UGC as above average but not of 
star quality.

From the Secretary of die Zoologi-

Sir, Reducing the market for rhino 
horn in Asia (report. May 20) is an 
important step in the attempt to 
save the species, and the efforts of 
the World Wildlife Fund and its 
Save fee Rhino campaign are to be 

Other no less important aspects 
are the setting aside for wildlife of 
sufficient land to sustain viable 
rhinoceros populations and the 
need to provide adequate num- 
bers of trained guards to protect 
the re maining animals from 

In addition, a vital component 
necessary for long-term success 
must be greater understanding of 
the ecology, reproduction and 
genetics oftherhino in order to 
manag p the surviving animal s to 
best advantage in the restricted 
habitats that remain. We are still 
largely ignorant of the limiting 
factors in these fields of biology as 
they apply to rhinos. 

It is possible that the powerful 
new techniques in reproductive 
medicine, inducting embryo trans- 
fer and artificial insemination, 
may be helpful in promoting the 
recovery of rhino numbers.

Psychiatric centre 

From Dr I. G. Thomson 
Sir, I read with interest and 
concern the letter from Professor 
Edwards and others (May 27). 

A few decades ago, psychiatric 
hospitals provided asylum or care 
and little treatment Psychiatry is 
today the most cost-effective of 
the major medical specialities in 
that in recent years dramatic 
reductions in length of stay, etc, 
have been achieved. This change 
from care to treatment has been 
largely brought about by the 
discoveries in centres of excellence 
like the Bethlem/Maudsley. 

When staff pay rises are not 
fully funded by the Government, 
it particularly bits well-staffed 
centres of excellence and they 
therefore have a special case to 

Congested M2S 

From Mr Robert Mitchell 
Sir, Sir Colin Buchanan (May 26) 
is unjust in- blaming the 
overcrowding on the M25 on the 
GLCs rejection of the Layfield 
inquiry road plan. The Conser- 
vative GLC administration, 
elected in 1967, of which I was a 
member, transformed the em- 
bryonic Abercrombie and Layfidd 
proposals into the detailed 
ringway plan — the “motorway 
box" of the newspaper headlines 
of those daysu 

The Labour opposition rejected 
the plan and the 1973 GLC 
election was, unusually, fought 
with a local issue — homes vs 

will no longer be able to claim that 
those offences are political and 
thus avoid justice. 

Senator Kerry rightly says that 
the political offence exception has 
a long history. But the fact is that 
the problems we are fading today 
are very different from those faced 
by nineteenth century legislators. 
The Supplementary Treaty does 
not undermine either 
government's tradition of offering 
protection to the genuine political 

What the Supplementary Treaty 
does, is to make it clear that 
neither government accepts that 
there is a place for murder, 
kidnapping or bombing in our 
political life. People are entitled to 
hold whatever political opinions 
they like, but it is not acceptable 
that those opinions should be 
expressed by violence. 

United Stales citizens around 
the world have themselves been 
victims of such violence. The 
Supplementary Treaty will mean 
that neither the United States nor 
the United Kingdom will be a 
haven for those who murder and

tions to wild life conservation, are 
being developed at the Institute of 
Zoology of the Zoological Society 
of London. Funding for such work 
is still inadequate, although an 
important lead is now being given 
by the research councils ana the 
Department of the Environment. 

Of the many endangered spe- 
cies, the predicament of the 
rhinoceros and the giant panda are 
perhaps most widely appreciated. 
Less well known is that of the 
4,000 species of mammals we 
have detailed physiological and 
ecological knowledge about, prob- 
ably fewer than 50. We know even 
less about birds and reptiles. 

The result is that many species 
are becoming extinct before we 
even know how to help and before 
we can appreciate and describe 
their importance in the environ- 
ment ana to man. 

Such losses may threaten the 
balance of whole ecosystems and 
prove to be costly and unnecessary 
mistakes. Time is not on our side 
and additional funding from na-

urgently required if it is not to be

Questions for a 
young lawyer 

From Sir Frederick Lawton 
Sir. Having been for nine years, 
until March last Chairman of the 
Advisory Committee on Legal 
Education, I welcomed your lead- 
ing article “Brokers in law" (May 
30). Any committee considering 
the future of legal education and 
training should concern them- 
selves with what is best for the 
administration of justice and ask 
themselves these questions. 

First should our future lawyers, 
with a few exceptions, have to 
deride, as they now do, in their 
second or third year at a university 
or polytechnic whether they want 
to become barristers or solicitors? 
A wrong derision at this stage can 
be put right later, but at the cost of 
much time and money. 

Secondly, should the Inns of 
Court go on calling to the Bar each 
year about 900 banisters when the 
practising profession can only 
absorb about 300? Many of those 
who are not absorbed are likely to 
feel frustrated and that they have 
wasted - years of training and 
thousands of pounds of either 
their parents' or local education 
authorities' money. 

Thirdly, if the Bar is to be open 
to all, how arc young banisters, 
without family money behind 
them, going to support themselves 
reasonably adequately in their 
early years in practice? Those who 
do get a seat in chambers are likely 
to be much better able to earn fees 
than my generation was before 

There are, however, problems — 
low fees, for instance, long delayed 
in payment — andfor those start- 
ing practice in highly remu- 
nerative specialities, like 
commercial and patent work, 
there must inevitably be a long 
learning time before briefs arrive. 
The Law Society about 20 years 
ago solved a similar problem 
besetting articled clerks by requir- 
ing their members to pay them 
reasonable salaries. 

I doubt whether the allure of a 
salary whilst training has enticed 
as many young lawyers away from 
the Bar as the Bar Council seems 
to think-, but it must have helped 
some to make up their minds. The 
inns of Cburt are aware of this 
problem and have tried to solve it; 
but the solutions have been piece- 
meal, sometimes inadequate and 
often tied over closely to academic 

After over 50 years in the legal 
profession I am convinced that the 
efficient administration of justice 
requires a body of highly skilled 
advocates. Those responsible for 
legal education and training have 
the duty to identify those students 
who have the potential for becom- 
ing skilled advocates and to 
organize the legal profession so as 
to give them opportunities for 
developing such talents as they 

As with the priesthood, there is 
much to be said for putting the 
yoke on them when young, but not 
when too young.

In the long run 

From Professor J. H. Bums 
Sir, Mr Phillip Oppenheim sug- 
gests (May 30) that the Sport Aid 
events “may ease a few 
consciences". For myself as I 
made my sexagenarian way round 
the ten-kilometre course last Sun- 
day, I had supposed that we were 
there not to ease consciences but 
to stir them. 

That we were there in such 
numbers, supported by so many 
more, would seem to indicate that 
a good many consciences had 
indeed been or were being stirred 
to try, in however limited a way, to 
do something about Africa’s prob- 
lems. Perhaps many of our con- 
sciences were and are, in the 
theologians' phrase, insufficiently 
informed; but then the con- 
sciences we hoped we might stir 
were above all those of people 
with both the information and the 
power to act more effectively than 
any of us could do. 

Perhaps those who ran and 
those who sponsored the runners 
can lake some small comfort from 
the fact that Mr Oppenheim is 
prepared to allow that what we did 
“will undoubtedly save some lives 
in the short term". None of ns, 
after all, has more than a fairly 
short term to look forward to; but 
it is a good deal shorter for many 
in Africa (and elsewhere) than for 
most of us in the industrial world.

the Eclipse Stakes. In 1900 
Persimmon s brother Diamond

was, until the middle of the 
17th century, open fields used 
for pasture. After the Restora-

new tracts of land were bought 
up for residential building, 
and in 1664 Lord Clarendon, 
the powerful Lord Chancellor, 
acquired several acres to the 
north of what is now Piccadil-

Portugal Street in honour of 
Catherine of Braganza.

a short time of the house being 
completed, and after a brief 
period in the ownership of the 
Duke of Albemarle, it was sold 
for demolition in J683. 

The new owners were a

builders) and bankers headed

Street is named after one of 
their principal associates. Sir 
Thomas Bond, who bought 
building leases and, probably,

months there recovering from 
the effects of losing his aim off 
Teneriffe — as did Lady 
Hamilton after his death. By 
then it had become a centre of 
fashion, in which ladies liked 
to parade their latest finery; 
and they were matched by the 
men in their wigs and embroi- 
dered coats and waistcoats.

A wonderland 

Although visually maie-dami- 
nant than art and antiques, the 
fa&ion world in Bond-Street 
is more fugitive than the' nisi, 
shops comma and going with 
the seasons. Due to the nota- 
ble absence of the Americans, 
Arabs and Nigerians, the 
feet that few British people 
can afford to buy, many shops 
admit to feeling the pinch. 

Apart from Fenwicks, the 
only department store on the 
street, fashion tends to appear 
in the smaller premises that in 
the old days were pc* shops 
and chemists. For someone 
new to the street^ first impn»y- 
sions might be of a boutique 
wonderland brought to you in 
person ty a host of gl a mor ou s 
names: Kurt Geiger, Roland ■ 
Cartier, Valentino, Gucci. 

But, if not dead Or fictional 
(Roland Cartier was thought 
up by the British Shoe Corpo- 
ration Footwear Ltd) all do- . 
signers are notable by their 
absence on Bond Street Most 
are part of drains ran by- 
entrcpneneurs. Thegreat Bond 
Street deception continues 
right back to the landlords, 

- who instead of leisured aristo- 
crats, usually , turn out tri be 
fadeless bureaucracies like the 
Prudential Assurance pension 
fund, which owns 41 

Entrepreneurs include Mr 
and Mrs Jonathan' Faulkner, 
who own Gacberel, Henry and 
Vuitlon. Over the last year. 
Peter Bertel sen has become 
the most powerful. A Danish 
oil magnate, he started lap- 
ping the fashion market fry 
buying up part of the' Lauren 
Shop. Nest came Valentino, 
then another Velentino. -for 
good measure. Now, BasDe, 
Ungaro and Giorgio Armani 
have joined his stable, and to 
buy Bertelsen can mean to. buy 
a «ide variety of styles, from 
discreet and classic at Ungaro 
(where this season's colours 
are Mack and white, outfits 

often combining checks with 
flowery pattern} to swanky Basfle (abraver 
mix of bright bolero topsand 

One result pf this (ham 
' phenomenon is that the stam- 
per is not as free when :he 
makes his choice as be thinks. 
Salesmen at Watches of Swit- 
zerland, for example, do not 
grind their teeth when poten- 
' tiaf customers wander next 
door to Patek Philippe, PiagEt, 
Rolex or Tyme as they are all 
specialist showrooms of the 
same firm. .- Another shoe 
Chain, Kurt Geiger, owns Bra- 
no Magli. 

Likewise in the case of the 
Cedi Gee empire. Not a 
designer, bat an owner. Gee 
has three shops in Bond Street 
named after him, selling Euro- 
pean-designed men's clothes 
(in particular the German 
Boss label) popular with Indi- 
ans and' Arabs. He stocks a

.Meanwhile the street itself 
has a certain prestige pattern, 
literally reflecting its (me way 
traffic system, which leads 
towards Piccadilly, namely in 
general getting more and more 
up-maiket the closer to Picca- 
dilly, and the further, from 
Oxford Street Up at the 
down-market end has just 
appeared- Next, which like 
.Berkenex- is .doing a roaring 
trade from customers drifting 
in from bath worlds. 

Fashion takes onan almost 
institutional solidity down at 
the Old Bond Street end, 
wherefrom monolithic build- 
ings Gncri, Chanel and 

Yardley are based. “60 percent 
of our trade is foreign, but we 
are so international, we don't 
need to rely oh Americans'* 
Mr Collinson, a manager 
Gucci, adding that he has 
just sold a set of three croco- 
dile suit cases to an Arab 
customer for £1 9,000. * 

Haying arrived in Bond 
street five years ago, ‘Chanel 
just opened its clothes bou- 
tique m March, and last week 
was h umming to the sound of 
Japanese ladies buying up 
chain-handled handbags at 
£300 each. No-one was trying 
on. the suits, which start at 
£800. Meanwhile trade was 
quiet at Yardley, a shop for 
sweet-scented lotions and 
as well as a beauty 
lour. “It is.the only salon in 
Street" says Susan 
Albury, “There used to be 
more, like Elizabeth Arden, 
but they disappeared when 
rents became more 
expensive." Being Yardtey's 
head London office, and 
owned by the firm, they can 
afford this indulgence. 


Bond Street is 

rive in respect ofbaubles that 
are hung on walls, as opposed 
to people. The newcomer 
unaccustomed to measuring 
-English arrogance on a scale of 
diffidence, might well walk 
past Sotheby's, the most pow- 
erful auction house in the 
world, without even noticing 
it. But behind its modest 
facade (punctuated by “The 
Kiosk" — a cigarette and sweet 
stall) is an empire ever ex- 
panding into the block and 
across the road. 

Inside, ail manner of an- 
tiques are catalogued and sold. 
However, the place is owned 
by Alfred Taubman, the 
American magnate, and has 
advanced into Jess gentleman- 
ly big marketing. As they 
prepare to host the Bond 
Street celebration ball on 
Thursday, 1 Sotheby's is also 
waiting for Westminster 
Council to slap on new regula- 
tions designed to protect the

By naming bis hero “Bond ~ James' 
Bond", Ian Fleming neatly evoked both 
the man and the street: wealthy, suave, 
sexy and pbWerful, not to mention 
proud and independent Today, Bond . 
Street retams its reputation as the world 
centre for the GM~Master ; trade and 
jewellery. But jts.dferacter has become . 
confused. - . - _ . • ' . V; 

Shops tend to , duster, in : 
according totbeinrade, asagene 
becoming more iip-maiket The further, 
south they go. But running costs have 
become so nigh (even a double upstairs 
room can cost £30,000 a year), that 

many shops have been absorbed into big 

agglomerates, thus making a nonsense 
of Bond Street’s supposed uniqueness. 
Another problem about big money is 
that British people do not, as a whole, 
have h, and in a. year when both 
Americans and Arabs are conspicuous 
by their absence, this can mean prob- 
lems for Bond Street 

Take the jewellery trade, clustered in 
one section where Old , Bond -Street 
meets New. Cartier, here since 1909, has 
traditionally been synonymous with 
exclusivity. Today, the prices for their 
jewellery are still high (necklaces rang- 
ing from £3,500 to £80,000), but their ' 
sefling .techniques have ch a ng ed- “Be-

Gose by, A^reys looks , from the 
outside the most'im posing in the street: 
- six adjacent shop fronts, their windows 
bursting with treasures. Traditionally, it 

sells a wide variety of Itunny goods, 
from subcases and bone hairbrushes to 
£1 million necklaces. However, judging 
from 7 the giant, custom-made, gem- 
enernsted eagles they are selling at 
585,0001 Aspoy's has .succumbed to 
taste nouveau. 

. -.The most intriguing window on the 
street is that of Sac Freres, the only 
amber shop in the world. Rendered 
invisible to gtitter-seekiiig buyers on 
account of its drabness, its sparse 
display of dangling necklaces attracts a 
loyal clientele including doctors and 
lawyers, as well as the occasional author 
(Iris Murdoch prefers to select by touch, 
and so does not mind the lugubrious 
atmosphere). Guarded by WoHkat 
John Hunger, third generation of a q 
Alsace family, whose fierceness goes 
once genuine interest is shown, the shop 
is revealed as a treasure trove. 

Finally, unbeknown to most shop- 
pers. the building currently swathed in 
scaffolding in the jewellers section is 
due to emerge as the first London 
branch of Tiffany s in September. Being 
an American firm, it will no doubt 
confuse the street's character even 
more, but certainly add to its glamour.

twenties are gaining a reputa- 
tion for making “finds” in the 
field of 18th century painting. 

Down at the Piccadilly end 
of Bond Street, a number of 
big established dealers con- 
duct the opposite policy, by 
presenting themselves as en- 
lightened humanists, running 
seriously researched exhibi- 
tions. Agnews, for example, 
opens a show of 18th century 

French painting this week, 
while Colnaghi have one on 
sporting paintings. The gallery

To Dr D. Fyke 

A symposium and dinner were 
held at the Royal Society on 
Friday, May 30. to mark the 
retirement of Dr David Pvke as 
physician in charge of the 
diabetic department at King’s 
College Hospital. The speakers 
were Professor D. Weaiherafl, 
Professor W. FeldbeTg, Profes- 
sor K. Taylor, Sir Cyn! Clarke, 
and Professor G. Alberti. Dr 
A.M. Cooke proposed a toast to 

Cochran’s Young Ladies’*. 

She was then' primarily a 
dancer; but in 1930, as Anna 
Neagle, she began a film career 
and became Jack Buchanan's 
juvenile lead in the tour of a 
musical comedy. Stand Up 
and Sing, after this had 
opened at the London Hippo- 
drome in tbe spring of 1931. 
she did not miss a single 
performance (604 in all). 

Later her stage and film 
careers moved together. Fair- 
haired and blue-eyed, she had 
the “English rose” kind of 
good looks; she photographed 
weU, and from Goodnight 
Vienna (1932) her screen fu- 
ture was assured. Eleven years 
later she married Herbert 
Wilcox, who directed her in all 
her major films, and it was a 
most happy partnership. 

One of their earliest pictures 
was Noel Coward's Bitter 
Sweet in 1933. Just after she 
had made Nell Gwyn, with its 
amiable romanticism, she 
suddenly found herself, at 10 
days' notice, as Rosalind in 
Regent's Park. 

Though she had never acted 
in Shakespeare, or for years 
even read the plays, she 
managed to get through, under 
Robert Atkins's guidance and 
with a cast that included Jack 
Hawkins. Margaretla Scott 
and John Drinkwaier. Olivia 
in Twelfth Night followed: 
another performance remem- 

stage of the Palladium (1937); 
almost across the road she 
could see posters of herself as 
the aged Queen. She returned 
to the screen and to Victoria in 
Sixty Glorious Years, which 
was made in colour. 

Moving to Hollywood (but 
still directed by Wilcox), she 
played one of her most quietly 
veracious parts, Norse Edrth 
Caveii, followed by three brisk 

On the night of tbe premiere 

Herbert Wilcox was very ill in 
hospital But he made a good 
recovery. And despite terrible 
notices, Charlie Girl, in which 
Anna Neagle played a former 
Cochran Young Lady who 
married into the peerage, ran 
for five years. 2,047 perfor- 
mances. and loured later in 
Australia and New Zealand. 

During its run she was 
created DBE in the Birthday 
Honours of 1970 (she bad 
been made CBE in 1952). 

In 1973 she was asked to 
appear in a revival of No. No. 

song-and-dance pictures, in- Nanette at Drury Lane, the 

eluding No. No, Nanette. 

In an England at war she 
appeared as Amy Johnson in 
the film. They Flew Atone. She 
returned to the stage in 1945 
as Emma Woodhouse in a 
rather tepid version of Jane 
Austen's novel Emma. It 
remained her favourite pan. 

Back then to the cinema and 
what was known as the “Lon- 
don series'*. With such titles as 
/ Live in Grosvenor Square, 
The Courtneys of Curzon 

theatre where nearly 50 years 
earlier she had been a chorus 
stand-by in Rose-Marie. Again 
ber sense of occasion did not 
foil her. 

When, too, in 1975, she 
took over from Celia Johnson 
in William Douglas-Home's 
play. The Dame of Sark, she 
gave to the pan's calm courage 
her own gently personal

cinema's biggest box-office 

She had stronger material in 
Odette, the story of the gallant 
agent in Occupied France who 
for two years after arrest was 
in enemy hands, and in 1951 

In 1982 she was in the 
pantomime Cinderella at 
Richmond and gave her last 
stage performance as the fairy 
godmother, also in a produc- 
tion of Cinderella, which 
opened at the London Palladi- 
um at Christmas. 


Sir Kenneth Wood, PCA, a 
leading figure in the post-war 
development of reinforced 
concrete for ‘‘high-rise’’ hous- 
ing, died on May 27, aged 77. 

Trained as a chartered ac- 
countant but with all the 
instincts of the structural engi- 
neer which he had wished to 
be. it was said ofWood that he 
was able to design and cost a 
precast concrete beam in his 
head (though, as he would 
dryly observe, it was wise to 
check the figures afterwards). 

He was appointed industrial 
adviser to Richard Cross man 
when the latter was Minister 
of Housing in 1966, services 
for which Wood was knighted 
in 1970. He was also Director 
of the National Building 
Agency from 1966 - 1979. 

Born on April 25, 1909, the 
son of Sydney and Edith 
Wood, Kenneth MiOns Wood 
was educated at Barnstaple 
Grammar School and after- 
wards at Cambridge, where he 
had a distinguished academic 
career, ending as Wrangler in 
tbe mathematical tripos at 
Trinity College. 

On coming down, he aban- 
doned his wish to become a 
structural engineer, qualifying 
instead as a chartered accoun-

However, difficulties arose. 
Local authorities, who had

Several councils look the 
cheapest way out and demol-

them. Experts cite many rea-

Science report 

Playing possum linked to cot deaths 

By Tony Sams tag 

One explanation for the trage- 
dy of cot deaths, or tbe 
mysterious illness known as 
sodden infant death syndrome, 
may be related to the mecha- 
nism that enables animals to 
“play dead”, according to 
recent studies at the Universi- 
ty of Oslo. 

The conclusion is drawn by 
Dr Birger Kaada, a neuro- 
physiologist, who bases his 
suggestion on studies of the so- 
I called “fear paralysis reflex”. 

| The syndrome is the greatest 
single cause of mortality dur- 
ing the first year of life id 
developed countries. 

Dr Kaada believes it can be 
caused by tbe reflex which is 
triggered when “any threat is 
perceived as a danger and 
which evok es f ear, such as 
predator confrontation, re- 
straint of movement, inver- 
sion, rnifnmiliar and sodden 
noises, strange environment 
and separation from mother 
and compamoiis”. 

The reflex is “innate, atavis- 
tic — strongly accentuated in 
sudden, t hreatening situations 
with which the organism is 

unable to cope, Le. in a 
condition of hopelessness and 

An infant tint dies suddenly 
for no apparent reason may, in 
other words, literally have 
been scared to death. Al- 
though tbe fear paralysis re- 
flex was first described 350 
years ago, and has inspired no 
fewer than 14 different terms 
to describe it, doctors have 
paid far less attention to it 
than animal behaviourists. 

Animals in which it hag 
been observed include chick- 
ens, many species of bird; deer 
calves and fawns; rats, lizards, 
frogs and even eels, in which 
“slight stimulation of either 
gill caused a sadden and 
powerful cardiac .arrest in a 
state of diastole”. 

In a monograph explaining 
the phenomenon. Dr Kaada 
says there is an attractive logic 
in the suggestion that foe 
physiological responses neces- 
sary to feign death might get 
out of hand, bringing abont the 
real thing. Death from these

Grand Theatre, Leeds . 

For part ' two of its ^summer season 
devoted to the wages of sin, or even

which found fevour in some quarters . 
but not, alas» : in this one. But no 
matter in Leeds' il is altogether a 
.different aflair. 

' Fora start, it is sung in French, and 
very decent French too, without

the Coliseum's lustreless translation. 
And Mr Judge has been persuaded to 
round off some of foe wackier comers 

of his staging, although a little more 
rounding-oSwould not come amiss, 
especially in foe first h 2 lf. 

Too often smart— and not so smart 
; — ideas go rigbt against foe cultivated 
-dbamt of foe score, notably in foe ' 
. kermesse sceue. ^The quali ty of foe 
production lies in the way it turns a 
long <toera^. even stripped of the 
' ballet, into what seems a short one. Its

recognize foe fact that Gounod was

one of foe most winning of sopranos,

Jerome Pruett, as Faust, could steal 
a little of it from her. His musical 

manners are admirable, but foe tenor

attractive Wagner from Adrian 

Opera North’s chorus shrugged off 
their Victorian costumes and had one 
of their very best nights. So did the or- 
chestra under Clive Timms. 

All in all this is a more satisfying 
and considerably less perverse Faust 
than London saw. Next stop in the ,

Born to Kirksville, Missou- 
ri. in 1924, Geraldine Page 
grew up in Chicago. She first 
thought of using her sketching 
talents to become an artist Or 
at least she thought of being a 
musician, but times being 
what they were, which- was

The eventual arrival of a 
piano proved something of a 
disappointment — “I tried and 
tried, but I was disillusioned 
very quickly, because I wanted 
to play a concerto straight-

middle of The Skaters Waltz" 
— foe course of her life being 
determined rather, by a key

Her Broadway debut to Mid-

James Dean, while a film

with three out of her first four

Missing links 



Festival Hall 

A question: When is a sym- 
phony not a symphony? An- 
swer When it happens to be 
Bruckner's Fourth Symphony 
conducted by Guiseppe 

Or perhaps the work is not 
really a symphony under any 
other circumstances either, for 
that term implies at least a 
degree of argument and reso- 
lution, or at any rate a sense of 
progress having been made by 
the end. Those things it does 
not have, but nevertheless it is 
still great music. 

Statement might follow 
statement, climaxes accrue 
without apparent effect, new 
beginnings made over and 
over again. Yet those state- 
ments are of themselves in- 
variably lull of meaning. The 
obvious metaphor — why 
should we avoid it? — is foe 
mountain, viewed again and 
again from its grassy lowland 
slopes to its heaven-searching 


The work is scarcely lacking 
in organic unity, either, and so 
it was something of a disap- 
pointment that Sinopoli 
seemed to be willing to treat it 
as a series of episodes largely 
unrelated to each other, espe- 
cially in foe finals 

The immediate effect was 
unaiguably telling, especially 

with the Philharmonia 
Orchestra’s willingness to 
make foe most of every detail, 
be it foe tiniest tremolo or 
obligato whisper from foe 
upper strings or foe most 
awesome brass-laden fortissi- 
mo blasts. 

It seems unbelievable that 
these were foe same players 
who a week or two ago were 
giving the most refined perfor- 
mances of French music, such 
was foe rich, warm solidity of 
their sound. 

But foe power did not 
accumulate as it should have, 
though foe Scheizo at least 
had plenty of rhythmic thrust. 
The slow movement seemed 
to amble rather amiably on its 
way where it ought to have 
touched the heart, and could 
so easily have done at foe risk, 
perhaps, of a degree of exacti- 
tude. Perhaps, indeed, 
Sinopoli’s tight control of foe 
orchestra lay at foe roots of the 

Before this, Uto Ughi gave 
an equally confident reading 
of Brahms* Violin Concerto. 
There were no problems of 
unity here, but ultimately 
again it was not a performance 
to stir foe soul, for all the 
wondrous horn and wood- 
wind solos contributed by foe 
orchestra. The trouble was 
quite simple. The concerto 
ought to be an heroic struggle, 
where Ughi made it sound 
positively easy.

By now the supply of really 
first-rate Victorian and Ed- 
wardian decorative arts is 
getting rather thin on foe 
ground. But, as Constant 
Lambert once remarked, foe 
dungheap of today is foe pot- 
pourri of tomorrow, and 
sometimes a label which 
seems to promise untold de- 
lights to foe Victorian enthusi- 
ast proves to cover only the 
leavings of foe rubbish dump.

one have thought to do so, to

MP defies Commons 

The House of Commons 
has been confronted with 
another breach of its rules of 
privilege after a deliberate 
decision by a Labour MP 
yesterday to make public con- 
fidential papers placed before 
a select committee (Richard 
Evans writes). 

Mr Dale Campbell-Savours, 
MP for Workington and a 
member of the public ac- 
counts committee, gave the 
documents, relating to savings 
made by some health authori- 
ties. to the Press Association, 
then informed Mr Bernard 

Wcatherill, Speaker of the 
Commons, and Mr John 
Biflen. Leader of the Com- 
mons and chairman of the 
privileges committee. 

Mr Colin Webb, PA editor- 
in-chief, said the item was of 
little news value and would 
not be used. 

Two weeks ago the Com- 
mons voted against suspend- 
ing a journalist from The 
Times for six months for 
breaching privilege by leaking 
the confidential draft of a 
select committee report on 
radioactive waste.

There is a shares and cash 
offer which values SamueiY

wiih a new net asset value of

. Samuel Properties’ board is 
unanimously recommending

of its shares: The acquistion 
gives Qayform an asset base

Samuel Montagu. 

Qayform is buying Samuel

ings. Mountkdgh. the fast- 
growing property company, is 
payidg £57.8 million for a 
portfolio of properties which 
Samuel recently bought from

Only two investment prop-

Samuel - has revalued its 
portfolio, which is :teavfly 
weighted to suburban London 
offices. The sale of the Effra 
site and foe Loncho portfolio 
wifl net £8 million in profits. 

. Other factors Cuing foe net 
asset value to 282p per share, a 
15.9 .per cent- increase over 

there had been no detailed 
international discussions 
about stabilizing the dollar at 
present levels, and this led to 
further selling. 

The dollar dropped through 
the 230 level against foe 

nigs down at 23755J Against 
the yen, foe dollar fell to 
171.70, compared with 174.90 
overflight, and the I77_level 
reached in Far East trading on 
Monday. . 

The pound rose by 1.85 
cents to. 1.4925 against foe 
weakdoHar. However, sterling 
lost more than two pfennigs to 
close at 3.3985 against foe 
mark which, with the yen was 

the chief beneficiary of dollar 
weakness. The sterling index 
fell by 02 to 76.1. 

The pound was helped by 
figures showing an underlying 
rise of Si 38 million (£92.5 
million) in Britain’s gold and 
foreign currency reserves in 
May, the fifth consecutive 
monthly increase. 

The reserves stood at 
$19,166 million (£13,016 mil- 
lion) at foe end of May, foe 
highest level since February 
1982. The cumulative rise in 
the first five months of foe 
year was $924 million, virtual- 
ly offsetting foe $941 milli on

of last year, when the Bank of 

West German growth resumes 

“The West Genuanecouomy 
is recovering, after a winter 
pause in growth. Industrial 
output rose by 13 per cent in 
April, it was announced yes- 
terday.Ths came after a 1 per 
cent (lectins ia March. 

The country's real gross 
national product declined by 
abort 0.5 percent in the first 
three months compared with 
the final quarter of 15185, 
according to provisional esti- 
mates. The GNP in the first 

quarter was about 2 per cent 
higher than in foe correspond- 
ing period of last year. 

Ibis pause in growth, which 
accompanied foe sharp slide in 
world oil prices, appears to 
have been common to several 
countries, including Britain. 
The April industrial produc- 
tion figures, while probably 
exaggerated by the scale of the 
March decline, point to a 
resumption of strong growth in 
the second quarter. 

B & C buys 55% 
stake in Premier 

By Alison Eadie 

British & Commonwealth 
Shipping has added another 
business to its rapidly expand- 
ing financial services division 
by takinga 55 per cent stake in 
Premier Portfolio. 

Premier, formed last year 
from a management buy-out 
of a division of Avco Trust, 
manages blocks of mortgages 
for financial institutions and 
is also a secured leader partic- 
ularly in the second mortgage 

Mr John Gunn, a director of 
B & C, said yesterday: “We 
are continuing ; to develop our 
■ -financial services and we are 

very excited by the prospects 
which our investment in Pre- 
mier offers.” No price has 
been put on the deal, but the 
company is understood to 
have paid abort £3 million fru- 
its stake. 

Last month it expanded its 
financial services division by 
buying a controlling stake in 
StockBeech, the stockbroker. 

Mr Adrian Bloomfield, 
mana g in g director of Premier, 
said he expects B & C to be an 
active investor, even though it 
will not be involved in foe

the formal offer document in

Tran wood, the quoted vehicle 
which Mr Oppenheim is using

in taking a slake in Tranwood 
when Mr Oppenheim led a

Seven bid 
to build 

By Jeremy Warner 

Business Correspondent 

Seven groups of construc- 
tion. companies and banks 
have submitted proposals to 
foe Government forbuildinga 
new crossing of foe Thames at 
Dartfond, Kent, for £100 mil- 
lion or more. 

The Department of Trans- 
port expects to announce foe 
award of the contract by early 
August. Under government 
, plans to privatize the crossing, 
the successful candidate will 
take over the* two existing 
tunnels and their debt from 
Kent and Essex county coun- 
, ciis, and privately finance foe i 
1 construction of a third 
i crossing. 

Kent and Essex county 
! councils have also submitted 
proposals. All seven private i 
sector consortia believe their 
schemes will eliminate traffic 
congestion on the M25 around 
Dartford. The seven and their 
proposals are: 

• Costain and Tarmac — an 
immersed precast concrete 
tube crossing. 

m The Dartford Bridge 
Group, backed by Sir Robert 
McAIpine — a bridge. 

• The Dartford Joint Ven- 
ture. consisting of Balfour 
Beatty and Taylor Woodrow 

— an immersed precast con- 
crete tube. 

• The Dartford Tunnel 
Group, a consortium of John 
Mowtem and the Dutch con- 
struction group, Volker Stevin 

- an immersed precast con- 
crete tube. 

• Eurobridge —a bridge cross- 
ing similar to its unsuccessful 
bid for the Channel fixed link 

• Laing, Christiani, and Sev- 
en Seas— an immersed tube or 

• Tra&lgar House - either a 
bored tunnel or bridge link. 

Mr David Mitchell, trans- 
port minister, said that each 
proposal would be subjected 
to a delated technical and 
financial assessment so as to 
select the candidate likely to 
give best value for money to 
the public. 

Necessary enabling legisla- 
tion for foe project would be 
introduced at the earliest 

All seven consortia expect 
to finance part of foe cost of 
constructing foe third link out 
of tolls on the existing tunnels. 

Opponents of foe scheme, 
including the Commons select 
committee on transport, have 
argued that foe continuation 
of lolls at Dartford will create 
congestion and problems else- 
where on the M25

• The Committee of Public 
Accounts, the watchdog on

ried that factors other than

. precise, timing of privatiza- 
tion. Officially, the company 
is to be sold “this summer,” 
,but the. share -rale is widely 
expected to be in July so, that it 
does not run into foe privati- 
zation of British Gas. 
ina.repottpn foemcorpora- 

By Teresa Poole 
lion, in January, 1985, of the 
Royal Ordnance Factories 
into a public limited compa- 
ny, the committee says it is 
“surprised” that an opening 
balance sheet has not yet been 
published as this would enable 
foe company’s value to be 
assessed. ‘ 

It wantsfois information to 
be made available before pri- 
vatization and in time for 
effective Parliamentary 

Royal Ordnance's annual 
report for 1985 will be pub- 
lished next week, but Mr 
Robert Sheldon, foe Labour 
chainpan of the committee, 

raid yesterday that this would 
not allow sufficient time and 
would make a “nonsense** of 
Parliamentary scrutiny. 

He added: “I am veiy 
concerned that this isn’t 
rushed through- Getting value 
for money must be the most 
important aspect, rather than 
any convenience of fitting into 
the privatization schedule,” 

Pari of the reason for foe 
delay in publishing a balance 
sheet is believed to have been 
the time taken to sort out a big 
liability on a contract which 
went wrong. Next week’s bal- 
ance sheet is expected to show 
provisions to cover the loss.

England intervened heavily in 
the foreign exchange markets 
to support the pound and 
drive foe dollar down. 

hi assessing base rate pros- 
pects, dealers have paid par- 
ticular attention to sterling's 
rate against the mark, as well 
as the inflation figures. 

Yesterday's dip below 
DM3.40 for foe pound, unless 
it is the beginning of a sharp 
decline by steeling against foe 
mark, is unlikely to prevent 
lower base rates in Britain, 
while the May inflation fig- 
ures. due at the end of next 
week, are expected to show the 
rate down to 15 percent, from 
3 per cent in April. 

Mercury International 
raises ready $200m 

Mercury International Group, the 
City financial conglomerate which 
owns SG Warburg, the merchant 
bank, yesterday increased its capital 
resources through its first operation in 
international capital markets. The 
issue of $200 million (£1 36 million) in 
floating rate notes is the first long- 
term debt capital the company has 
raised. It is also one of the largest 
capital-raising exercises in this sector. 

The issue was originally set at $150 
million, but strong demand persuaded 
Mercury to raise the amount by $50 
million. The notes, which carry a 20- 
year maturity to July 2006, wifi leave 
Mercury with capital of around £500 

Mr David Scholey, the chairman, 
said that the issue would give Mercury 
“additional capital resources in a form 
to be readily and flexibly deployed in 
the expansion of our business”. 

The proceeds are likely to be 
divided between the securities and 
banking operations of the group, 
whose securities operation in Tokyo 
began trading on the Tokyo stock 
exchange yesterday. 

Mr Michael Gore, group finance 
director, said that additional capital 
was also necessary because it was still 
unclear how the capital requirements 
of financial conglomerates would be 

Until that uncertainty was removed 
it was useful to have a flexible reserve 
of capital which could be deployed to 
satisfy any future capital 

The new issue will raise Mercury's 
capital to roughly the same level as 
Kieinwort Benson's, one of the rival 
financial conglomerates emerging in 
London ahead of big bang in October. 

Mr Gore said that it also brought 
Mercury up to the level of many 
United States securities houses which 
are taking an increasingly large part in 
London markets. 

“They have large US operations to 
support and we now feel able to hold 
our own against them elsewhere in the 
world”, Mr Gore said. 

He added that although a large part 
of the floating rate issue would be used 
to support Mercury's securities opera- 
tions, it could just as easily be used to 
back banking operations. Mercury 
had decided not to issue a perpetual 
floating rate note, which would have 
ranked as primary rather than second- 
ary capital because a conventional 
issue would produce more money at 
finer rates. 

The issue, which is lead managed by 
SG Warbuig and guarantee by 
Mercury, carries a coupon of 0.25 per 
cent above the London interbank 
mean rate. 

Broker to the issue is Rowe & 
Pitman, the firm owned by Mercury. 
Front end commissions amount to 
0.65 per cent, including 0.25 per cent 
for underwriting and commission and 
0.4 per cent selling concession. 

Still no glister 

The last two or three years have 
been disappointing for gold enthu- 
siasts and if Consolidated Gold 
Fields* latest market review. Gold 

1986 , is a guide, this year will not offer 
much comfort. George Milling-Stan- 
ley, the new author of the survey, has 
continued the admirable tradition of 
lucid comprehensiveness which has 
made it the bible of the business, but 
he is unable to predict either the price 
increase or the volatility which the 
market craves. 

At $317 an ounce, the gold price in 
(986 was the lowest since 1979; 
volatility, or the range within which 
gold traded, was the lowest since 1 977. 
The supply of new gold to the non- 
Communist private sector fell for the 
first time since 1980, from 1,439 
tonnes to 1,288 tonnes. Identified 
investment holdings of bullion, the 
clearest indication of how speculators 
view the market, declined from 328 
tonnes in 1 984 to 308 tonnes. 

But, to be fair, these figures conceal 
subtle shifts in the market, some of 
which are welcome. Stimulated by a 
price which is still well above average 
Western production costs of $206 an 
ounce before depreciation ($254 after 
depreciation), mine production rose 
from 1.149 tonnes to 1,21 3 tonnes, the 
highest for 14 years. 

South African output was 10 tonnes 
lower at 673 tonnes, or 55 per cent of 
the total, but the difference was made 
up by burgeoning mines in North 
America, Australia and Brazil. Com- 
munist sales to the West were 
virtually the same at 210 tonnes. 

The gap between higher mine 
output ana a lower supply to the 
private sector is largely explained by 
centra] banks and other official agen- 
cies reversing their earlier policy to 
become net buyers in 1985 of 135 
tonnes of gold. 

So far in 1 936, the gold price has av- 
eraged $343 an ounce, largely because 
of a spurt induced by the oil price col- 
lapse early in the year. But if the price 
should dip this year, official purchases 
could pick up again, further straining 
the supply to the private sector. 

That strain chiefly arises from the 
impressive strength of demand for 
jewellery. Consumption of gold in 
electronics and coins was down 
sharply last year, in the latter case 
because the poor price deterred 
investors and there was political 
resistance to the now-discontinued 

But jewellery devoured 513 tonnes 
against 443 tonnes, the main reason 
being high earnings in countries such 
as India as well as developed nations 
and the depreciation of the dollar, 
which gave a particular filip to the 
booming Japanese market. 

Several years of capital losses on 

C and the relative attraction of 
rial instruments and stock mar- 
kets have knocked the shine off gold. 
But for gold bugs, the encouraging 
aspect is that the price is holding 
reasonably steady, supported by buy- 
ing below $330. 

Physical demand has been the key 
to the market even if the actual source 
changes from year to year. In 1986, for 
example, Japan has bought 200 tonnes 
for coins to celebrate the emperor. 
Patience in the gold market may yet 
pay off.

Hanson Trust 'seems to think 
that corporate advertising oa 
television is a substitute "for 
detailed facts -and -figures. 
Denholm Elliot and Joe Don 
Baker are makin g an excel- 
lent job of presenting Han* 
son’s varied activities every 
night of the week, but show 
business is not enough for 
stock market investors. 

Yesterday they had cause 
for complaint as the company 
has abandoned its detailed 
breakdown of activities in 
favour of just four headings — 
consumer, building products, 
industrial and brewing and 
food. With activities as di- 
verse as Ailders department 
Stores in Britain and shoe 
manufacturing in America 
lumped together it is difficult, 
if not impossible: to trade, the 
performance of individual 
activities, without guidance 
from the company. 

Group profits rose from 
£106 million to £158. miHion 
before tax after a £20 miHion 
contribution from SCM, the 
typewriter and titanium diox- 
ide company acquired this 
year. The results also benefit- 
ed from lower ■ interest 
charges after the rights issue 
last -summer but there was a 
£10 million adverse swing 
from currency movements. 

Allowing for these factors, 
it looks as if profits on 
existing businesses grew by 
only 13 jper cent, though it is 
difficult, to be firm on this. . 

With SCM included for a 
full six months m the second 
half and Imperial also mat 
in$ a contribution, profits 
this year could readi : -£4S0 
milli on, m jgpHn g a multiple - 
of 13 times prospective earn- 
ings with the shares at. 182p. 
That ratingshoukl recover as 
further SCM disposals are . 
announced and Hanson gets 
to grip with-lmperiaL So far 
Hanson has raised £155 mil- 
lion from SCM sales and it 
expects to fetch a similar ' 
amount over the next few 

Hanson may not worried 
about its rating, as it presum- 
ably is not planning to add to 
the weight of paper already m 
the market, but investoreare. 

Mr MaJcohn Glenn, the 
group chief executive ap- 
pointed a year ago, - said. 
Sketchiey’s strategy.. is;to 
build on its strengths. On the 
consumer .side, this means 
making the .shops mote, at? 
tractive, providing a under 
range of services Gke /mend- 
ing clothes, key-cutring and 
shoe repairs, and malting the 
services easier to use. The 
Pronto Bag (into which' the 
customer puts his. laundry 
with a note of the services 
required and his credit card 
number), and removals with 
honsedeanmg. a new sendee, 
could prove attractive to busy

The company was on the verge 
of making a final decision to 
develop its wholly owned 
Temora gold deposit in New 
South Wales, Australia, Sir Er- 
nest Lee-Steere, the chairman; 
said at the annua] meeting- 

• BRIDGE OIL: The company 
has completed ibe sale of its 15 
per cent interest in Samos to 
Elders Resources. 

MENTS: The company stands 
to show a profit, on book value, 
of at least AusSl miHion 
(£482,000) on the sale for more 
than AusS5 million cash of its 
interest in Murrumbidgee Hold- 
ings, the New South Wales milk 
distributor and yoghurt manu- 
facturer, to Boniac Foods. 

VESTMENT: At dose of busi- 
ness on May 50, the estimated 
net asset value per share was 

-. The company will also 

- press ahead in franchising 
• dry-cleaning outlets in. the 

North of England. Compared, 
with £8,000 per sdfoperared 
outlet, Sketchley can make 
£6,000 per franchised outlet, 
with no capital employed. 
Thane have been no shortages 
of potential franchisees, and 
to speed up the acquisition of 
sites, Sketchley will negotiate 
for them on behalf of the 

On the industrial side, as 
well as providing washroom 
services and hiring and dean- ' 
ing workwear, Sketchley will 
offer to collect and deliver 
Pronto Bags .for employees, 
and wifi provide coffee vend- 
ing machines through the 
recently acquired vending, 
subsidiary, Brealcmate. 

. . Tire preliminary results for 
the year to March 28, 1986, 
announced yesterday, 
showed pretax, profit up 16 
per cent to £11.6 million bn 
turnover - of £153 million, 
down 2 per cent.due mainly 
to currency. .* 

The US businesses, whiclr 
were a drain on management, 
ha ve been sold for £25_5 - 
million to give a surplus of £2 
miHion over book value. The 
remaining US napkin busi- 
ness (book value £63 mil- 
lion) is likdy to be disposed 
of; leaving the way dear for 
orderly expansion from the 
group’s Canadian base of dry- 
cleaning outlets in Toronto. 

- After disposals, the group 
had net cam of £33 million 
compared with 35 per cent 
gearing inMarch 1985. After 
paying £3:5 million for OCM,

The slock market is expecting 
too .much too soon from 
Noreros. Since it bid for 
UBM last year its shares have 
risen by .more than lOOp to 
yesterda/s near record of 
262p^as investors anticipated 
the benefits of the acqui- 

Yesterday’s figures for the 
year to March show that the 
gains from UBM have yet to 

Pretax profits rose from 
£343 minion to £45.1 mil- 
lion,, helped by UBM’s maid- 
en contribution. But UBTvTs 
profitability was unchanged 
and Norcros’s tfle and other 
building material manufac- 
turing operations increased 
profits only slightly. 

There was a £3 million 
turaround in the heavy engi- 
neering business which is up 
for sale and a near £2 million 
improvement in the print 

and parVag in g h nsinpufli 

The company says it is 
pleased with, the UBM 
acquisition. It is noticeable, 
however, that the expected 
increase in sales of Noreros 
products through UBM out- 
lets, outlined in the 
chairman's last report to 
shareholders, has not taken 
place. In addition the acquisi- 
tion involved a goodwill 
write-off of £47 milli on. 

In view of the slow re- 
sponse at UBM it is perhaps 
pot surprising that Noreros is 
how concentrating on organic 
rather, than acquired growth. 
That is despite its claim that

Specialized pack- 
aging, which takes in com- 
bined labelling and stock

This year greater efficien- 
cies on the manufacturing 
side and an improvement at 
UBM should propelprofits to 
possibly £53 million. 

That suggests a 
price/eamings ratio of 10.

Dee Corporation, the fast 
growing food retailer, looks 
ready to shake the market 
today with the biggest vendor 
placing undertaken . in the 
stock market 

Rowe & Pitman, the broker, 
is expected to announce a 
placing of 270 million shares 
at 235p to raise about £630 
million. The placing win be in 
two parts with Associated 
British Foods being allotted

about £280 million, in return 
for its Fine Fare supermarket 


The remaining 1 50 million 
shares will be placed m the 
market with various institu- 
tions in partly paid form. This 
manoeuvre may be designed 
to appease the big fund man- 
agers who are complaining 
that their cash resources are 
being overstretched. Investors 
will pay lOOp now for their 
shares with another lOOp due 
at the end of the month and

Mr Alec Monk, chairman 
and chief executive at Dee,

proceeds to reduce.the group's 
growing debt and strengthen 
the balance sheet. 

Shares of Dee Corporation 
hit 268p yesterday before the 
market got wind erf the placing 

after hours. The price eventu-

Dee already boasts several 
famous supermarket chains

De La Rue profits rise 
by 6% to £49.4m 

By Carol Ferguson 




The turnover of De La Rue, 
which supplies banknotes to 
more than 50 countries, 
slipped by 8 per cent to £310 
million in the year to March 
31 last But pretax profits were 
up by 6 per cent to £49.4 

The fan in turnover was due 
to the exclusion of the results 
of Security Express which was 
sold in June last year. On a 
turnover of £40 million, its 
profits were little more than 
£] million. 

Had it not been for the faD

further £3 million to £4 mil-

: Trading profits were 48 per 
cent higher on sales. 2.5 per 

cent ahead. The contribution 
from associates fell from £2 
million to £13 million due to 
a £700,000 drop in profit from 
Brazil, which had an excep-

'Vater bodies threaten to 
end support for sell-off 

By Jeremy Warner, 
Business Correspondent 

Government plans for pn- 
jaufing foe water industry m 
England and Wales, the big. 
gpst and most complex state 
seD-off yet proposed, have 
encountered renewed criti- 
cism from die Water Authori- 
ties Association. 

The WAA has told the 
Government that it will not be 
able to give active support to 
privatization unless certain 
important issues which the 
Government has so far “done 
nothing about" are addressed 

Mr Lea Hill, chairman of 
the WAA, has written to the 
enviroment minister responsi- 
ble for water, Mr John Patten, 
to tell him that support for 
privatization may have to be 
withdrawn if the issues are not 
resolved by the end of the 

Two weeks ago Mr Hill 
criticized the Government for 
attempting to rush through 
poorly thought out plans for 
privatizing the 10 regional 
water authorities in England 
and Wales. 

Mr Hill said the authorities 
were not being given enough 
tune to prepare for privatiza- 
tion and. that plans to stagger 
the flotations over several 
years were a potential area of 
“real trouble". Mr Hill 
thought that floating all 10 

John Fatten: deadline 
for urgent action 

authorities together would be 
the best approach to 

Confidential minutes of the 
WAA’s last council meeting 
obtained by The Times give . 
the impression of an industry 
.which is being bullied and 
beaten into submitting to 
privatization plans with much 
it is for from happy. 

Mr Gordon Jones, chair- - 
man of Yorkshire Water, told 
the meeting that several cru- 
cial issues remained to be 
solved before the WAA could 
give active support to 

These included whether all 
the authorities should be float- 
ed simultaneously or one at a 
time, the future of pensions 
for the industry's 50,000 em- 
ployees on which there was no 

agreement and control ofland 


Mr Jones said that the 
Department of the 
Enviroment was gaming mo- 
mentum in its privatization 
plans and “seemed to be 
drafting clauses before settling 
many financial 


All the authonues are vehe- 
mently opposed to Govern- 
ment plans to transfer 
responsibility for land drain- 
age from them to a new body 
controlled by the Ministry of 

They believe such an action 
will permantly damage the 
concept of integrated water 
basin management under 
which the authorities are re- 
sponsible for all aspects of the 
water environment. 

Several authorities ex- 
pressed the view that estab- 
lishment Of such a body would 
enable all extraneous activi- 
ties to be taken from them, 
leaving them as mere water 
and sewerage compa nie s. 

Mr Jones reported that 
Klein wort Benson, the mer- 
chant han k, had been engaged 
to look into the possibility of 
floating all authorities at once 
and that it indeed “seemed 
possible to envisage a way to 
get afl 10 authorities priva- 
tized simultaneously by the 
end of 1987 if the parliamen- 
tary timetable permitted”. 

Government sources, while 
acknowtedgmg that the idea' 
was being explored, felt a 
simultaneous flotation of the 
industry's £27 billion of assets 
was not practical and would 
present insurmountable logis- 
tical and stock market 

They also said that hun- 
dreds of miDions of pounds 
worth of debt woald nave to 
written off at several authori- 
ties, most notably at the North 
West which takes in Manches- 
ter and Liverpool, to make 
them viable propositions for a 
stock market flotation. 

Mr Jones told the WAA 
council meeting that the De- 
partment of the Enviroment 
seemed to have conceded that 
there might have to be a 
different mechanism for con- 
trolling price increases for 
each of the authorities. 

The Government had 
hoped to apply a standard 
formula of the retail price 
index minus x for prices 
si m i lar to that used to control 
the privatized British 

But the DoE now seemed to 
accept that the x factor might 
have to vary according to the 
individual needs of the 10 . 
authorities and that some kind j 
of mechanism for dealing with 
extraordinary costs such as 
those imposed by EEC 
directives would have to be

Regarding foe effect of

accepted the proposition of law 
put m Roberts v Tate & Lyle

([1983] ICR 521, .530) that 
where the- law of the EEC was 
• clear the English statute should 
; be construed so as to conform 
. with .Community tew. 

- But he argued, m the present 
case Community law was far 
from dear and did not establish 
that one should look at all the 
contractual terms of a woman 
compared with a man. 

Mr James pointed to ■ the 
preamble to the Equal Pay Act 
and observed that the Act was 
intended to give a woman equal 
treatment- as regarded her con- 
ditions looked at overall: 

. He submitted that when the 
Act was amended by the 1983 

Regulations to include equal 
value, it had to be looked at in 
the light of article 119 which 
involved considerations other 
than wages or salary. 

The appeal tribunal consid- 
ered that although Mr Pannick's 
argument was very persuasive 
the terms of section 1(2) were 
equally capable of bearing the 
meaning ascribed to them by Mr 

Article 1 19 bad to be applied 
and h was necessary to. look at 
foe overall package. 

An industrial tribunal was 
quite capable of carrying out foe 
necessary inquiry. The appeal 
would be dismjswd.

By Christopher Warman 

Property Correspondent 

The difficulties of buying a house are 
legion, and the inrain associated with If 
is well-known and probably written 
about in leaned medical journals. 

What is less well known is that many 
people set out to buy a particular house 
or a particular sort of house in a 
specified area and end up buying a 
totally different house in a different 

There are two answers to this problem, 
which may become a well documented 
syndrome known as ‘‘purchaser’s panic”: 
the first is to stay put and refuse to move; 
the second is to la other people find the 
house you want, where you want, refuse 
to move unless they find it, and pay them Property

a fee if they do. 

The big relocation firms, mentioned in 
this column recently, concentrate on 
moving company staff in reasonable 
□umbers and are rarely able to help 
individ uals who want to move. In the 
past year or two a growing number of 
businesses have started with the inten- 
tion of being estate agents in reverse — 
buying a . house for a client instead of 
selling h — and this trend is fist 

An indication that this is so comes 
from the fed that an Association .of 
Relocation Agents is being formed to 
bring together agents in this field. The 
embryonic association believes that die 
purchaser needs as much help as the 
property seller, perhaps more because he 
or she has to locate the property in the 

Demand for this service 
seems to be growing 

first place, and although estate agents 
will act for buyers their services are 
expensive. Generally they will act only 
for those seeking properties in the upper 
price brackets. 

Many small firms have recently 
opened— and some of them have already 
dosed — as individual house hunters. 
Though the demand for their services . 
seems to be growing, there are some 
which have let the side down. According 
to the association there are the bored 
housewives who come into the business 
but have not got the skill and experience 
needed, and there are people who open 
up full of confidence, charge a high 
signing-on foe and provide no service for 


The idea of an association arose after 
an article provoked 65 letters from 
people either in the business or wantmg 
to be in it seeking further information. 

The prop e rty .a home-search agent wotdd be Tacky to find: The Qtf Chancel, in

Orlando Hutchinson, historian and wood carver, who boeghfthe original chancel 
of the 15th-century parish church with its lSth-ceatmy east wmdow wbea it was 
threatened with demolltioo and then rebuilt it nearby ml864. H»e Grade I prop- 
erty has three reception rooms and three or four bedrooins.Sarais T office in Satis- 
bury, Wiltshire, is asking £188,006 

The result is that after an initial meeting 
of2Q small firms of relocation agents, the 
association will be formally be setup at a 
meeting on June 15, with the intention of 
setting standards and weeding out the 
crooks and amateurs. 

Paul Greenwood, formerly an estate- 
agent, whose house-hunting firm has- 
been operating now for two years, 
strongly believes tbeneed for. such firms, 
not only at the upper end of the market 
where they began, but also for firms in 
the middle range of £80,000 to £200,000. 

Mr Greenwood said: ^Tbe cheapest 
property we have bought was a cottage 
for £28,000, but it needed doing up. If 
somebody wanted a semi-detached in 
Swindon we could not help; because the 
established estate agents are there with 
the properties. But we can provide' a 
useful adjunct of the house-buying- 
business by helping people to find the 
house they want" 

The essential thing to understand is 
that the estate agent is there to sell a 
property for a client, and the relocation 
agent is there to find a property. “We do 
not sell properties, so there is no split 
loyalty,** said Mr Greenwood. “We can; 
teU a client if a particular house has a 
good view of the gasworks or is on the 
flight path to an airport, and our 
duty to do so.” 

These agents usually diaige a signing- 
on fee to show good mtent, then a further 
fee if a property is successfully pur- 
chased- Tbe average — and probably the 
desired standard — is £100 to start with 
and 1 per cent of the purchase price. 
However, some cheats have charged 

£350 to sign on but have foiled to 
provide any service. - 

Agents in this field tend in concentrate 
on particular areas. Oneax the upper end 
of the market. London-based Property. 
Vision, looks westward along the. M4’ 
corridor, and provides videos of suhable 
properties to avoid possible waste of 
time visiting a house which at first sight 
is totally wrong. 

The number of firms increases by thft 
day. Among the newer arrivals is . 
Property Matching, based at _ East'. 

Potential pur chasers ; 
will get. a videotape-; .. 

MoJesey, Surrey (01-941 5797); which 
focuses on central and smith-west Lon- 
don, Surrey or Middlesex. Tbfe finitwiD 
make and send a videotape of properties 
which match the requirements, orsenda 
report, and only sifter approval , will 
potential purchasers need to visit them. 

Another, is VIP Estate Services, a 
London-based home search agents (01- 
740 6527), which acts for both compa- 
nies and mdividnals. 

. There are many others, whether they 
are fully professional or cowboy&pr are 
run by bored hoosewive — so me, of 
whom will certainly provide ' a good - 
service — but since a new association is 
being formed, it might-be bat to bear it ' 

in mind.

The Three Cocks, at Telbnry, Gloucestershire, was for many years— as the name 
suggests — a public house. The CotswoW stone how dates bade to the 17th 
century, mid it is reputed that Oifrer Cromwell stayed there when he besieged 
Beverstone Custie. Cramwefl, accetdbig to the estate agents' particulars, must 
have been one of the most sociable of country house gaerts, tor scarcely a month 
passes without a reference to his visit to one bouse dr another. The Three Cocks is

Handbook for the home 

The National House Braiding Council, 
an independent body dedicated to 
promoting better housing s tandar ds and 
to. safeguarding house buyers, has 
launched a new home owners* manual 
designed to help to protect their 

The council, which celebrates its 50th 
anniversary this year, has already pub- 
: lished guides for house buyers, but this 
new version is its response to public 
demand for a more detailed gmde to 
houses artd.toeir construction. 

Therehave been calls for the introduc- 
tion of a bouse “log-book”, on the lines 
of a motor carlog-boofc, wtnchgives the 
legal title of ownership. The idea would 
have been not only to give details of toe 
house but also to use it as a way of trans- 
ferring ownerships jnst as a car log-book 
rhangpt hand*. 

But after consultation widijxofession- 
al bodies, mchidfagthe Law Society and 
consumer organizations, die council 
dedded this was not feasible. It would be 

■ impossible, to make such a . log-book 

legally binding if Rtmrfi fial juM B UtK 

made to a house after its sale, and h 
would not be practical to include the 
legal conveyancing documents in it 

The new handbook, w hich wiD be 
distributed free to all buyers of new 
houses regi s tered with the council — 
amounting to more than 99 per cent of 
houses built every year— includes advice 
on maintaining the house, , information 
on the NHBC 10-year warranty, a 
section on the difference between brick 
and block and timber frame construe- 
don, and a section on security. 

Tfieicoundl is careful not to enter the. 
controversy over the form of construct 
tioi^ cantenting itself iirith saying that 
. “wheat pffoperiy-buDt Jxdh .tarns ..of 

■ construction are equally satisfactory and 
durable and both meet or exceed the " 

requirements of the building 


It does, however, advise owners not to 
fill the cavities, not to alter walls or roof 
without consulting a qualified b uilder or 
professional, and to be careful about 
punching holes in the exterior walls. 

As we become more conscious of .the 
need to save energy, the book includes a 
section bn this topic, with advice which 
inclu d es die suggestion of wearing 
wanner clothes: “Putting on a woolly 
means you can turn down the hating 
Every degree lower is a saving.” 

Advice extends to the garden, with 
warning of the dangers iflaige trees are 
planted too near the house, and there is 
also information about how to get c 

Taking neighbours to court 
should always be avoided’ 

with the neighbours and avoid fnctio.. 
over boundaries and noise: It suggests 
that taking a neighbour to court is not the 
best way of sohmg problems: “Obvious- 
ly this does not help neighbourly 
relations and should be avoided if 

The package comes with a home 
owners* information card giving basic 
feds about, the house and & construc- 
tion, which must be completed by the 
braider in order to qualify for the 
counriTs warranty scheme — and which 
is to be kept in tim airing cupboard. 

The first print order for the handbook 
is 50,000, not enough for the 160^000. or 
so bouses likely to be built in the year. 
The reason for that is caution, in case 
anything needs to be changed, or 
further refinements and suggestions ca

By Mandarin 
(Michael Phillips) 

The open nature of this year's 
Deity — from which the 
Chantilly-bound Bakharoff 
was the only defector at the 
overnight stage — takes me 
back 10 years to 1976, which 
was the last rime the race' was 
won by a colt trained in 
France. That was Erapery, 
whose preparation lor our 
premier classic took in the 
Prix Lupin at Longchamp 
where he finished a dose third 
to Youth and Arctic Tern. 

Now, by sheer coincidence 1 
think that it could be the turn 
of another Gallic challenger, 
AROKAR to strike a blow for 
French racing and breeding. 
Like Empery his route to 
Epsom also took in the Prix 
Lupin. And, like Empery, he 
was also beaten in it, but fer 
from disgraced in going down 
by a length to the French 2,000 
Guineas winner. Fast Topaze. 

Y ves Saint-Martin, his jock- 
ey, is on record as saying that 
he might have won had he 
known Arokar better. With 
two pacemakers in the field 
Arokar’s Lupin was a real 
race. Not surprisingly it was 
run in a cracking good time, 
the fourth best since the War. 

The way that Arokar stuck 
to his task in the straight that 
day suggested to me that he 
will be in his element today 
raring over an extra furlong 
and a half. And when you 
analyse his pedigree that 
-should not be surprising. His 
sire, Akarad, won the group 
one Grand Pax de St-Cloud 
over mile and a half after 
finishing second in the French 
Derby, while his maternal 
grandsire. Silver Shark, was 
able to win the Prix Eugene 
Adam over 10 furlongs at St- 
Goud in 1966 after earlier 
showing high-class form over 
distances ranging from five 
furlongs to nine fiuiongs. 

So it is my contention that 
Arokar’s pedigree is a perfect 
blend of speed and stamina 
which will not look out of 
place in the history of today's 
great race. 

While conceding that at 
Epsom horses ridden and 
. trained by Frenchmen seldom 
appeal to the English betting 
public as a whole, 1 still feel 
that Saint-Martin is able to 
deliver the goods if he has the 
right horse under him. And in 
this instance the man who 
won the Derby on Relko and 
the Oaks on Monade and 
Pawneese could easily find 
Arokar the ideal conveyance. 

Yesterday it was elm that 
my selection had travelled 
well from France and that he 
had settled in nicely in his new 
surroundings when he was 
seen out exercising on the' 
Downs. He looked beautifully 
balanced as he strode down' 
the hill round Tattenham 
Corner and be quickened tip 

Dancing Brave shows the overwhelming power that has taken him to four brflUant victories in four races 

nicely to pass his lead horse in 
the last 200 yards. 

• Tim Bulwer-Long, who is 
Sayyid Kais Al-Said’s racing 
manager told me that both the 
colt's trainer, Jacques de 
Chevigny, and Saint-Martin 
feel that they have the coll 
spot on and that Arokar might 
well have come on by as much 
as 51b since the Lupin. Their 
attention to' detail has been 
such that in addition to all 
their own food they have also 
brought from Chantilly their 
own blacksmith. The last time 
the man in question was here 
ona similar mission was when 
he accompanied Sea Bird for 
Etienne Pollet in 1965. Who 
knows? French lightning 
might just strike again in the 
same place. 

Looking at the race as a 
whole 1 think that there are 
only two avenues open. You 
are either for Dancing Brave 
or you are not It remains my 
contention that the 2.000 
Guineas winner is basically 
the most gifted member of this 
1 7-strong field. So if you fancy 
him to do as well over a mile 
and a half as he hasdone over 
a mile already you must stand 
byhitn and look ho further. 

If" oh. the other.hand, tike 
me, you happen to think that 
his pedigree is suspect and 
that Hke many good, miters 
before him (Shadeed, Lo- 

mond, Tap. On Wood, 
Wollow, Blushing Groom, 
and NonoaTco to name but 
six) be will run out of steam 
long before the end you have 
to took elsewhere. 

All credit, though, to the 
man in the hot seat for sticking 
to his guns and preferring him 
to Guy Harwood's other run- 
ner, Allez MHord, who has at 
least won over the Derby 
distance. For what it is worth I 
think that holes can be picked, 
in Allez Milord's form. 

Michael Stoute, who is now 
one of five trainers to be 
doubly represented in today’s 
field, put his finger bn tire 
pulse during the weekend 
when he said that his first 
string, Shahrastani, is proba- 
bly the best bet to finish in the 
first three, although unfortu- 
nately his is not an each-way 

Hailed prematurely in some 
circles as the next Shergar, 
Shahrastani showed that that 
comment was wide of 'the 
mark at York last month when 
he won the Mecca-Dante 
Stakes in workman-like fash- 
ion. Shcrgaf was brilliant on 
his day. To; . mV way of 
thinking Nomrood and Sirk 
finished too close to 
Shahras&ni at York to get 

Jareer, Stoute’s. other run- 
ner, has what is arguably the 

best pedigree-of alL True to it 
he is dearly a fast top of the 
ground bone, but unfortu- 
nately his trainer had been 
unable to give him a race this 
season. In spite of that l expect 
to see him run really welL 
In' his first attempt to 
improve Whatcombe’s al- 
ready great classic record, Paul 
Cole is saddling Nisnas in 
addition to Nomrood. While 
wishing to take nothing away 
from Nomrood, who is after all 
the preferred choice of Cole's 

showing from the second 
string. Nbnas, who undoubt- 
edly did well to beat Henry 
Cecil's highly-rated colt. Vend- 
Antique, over a mite and a 
half at Lingfield last month. ■ 

With Verd-An tique tempo- 
rarily on the sidelines, Cecilis 
now fielding Faraway Dancer 
and Mashkour, who finished 
second and third, respectively, 
behind Dancing Brave in the

- There is no reason why Sirk 
should beat either Shahrastani 
orNomrood, so we now come 
to his stable companion, BoM 
Arrangement, who has already 
excelled himself this spring by 
finishing second to Ferdinand 
. in the Kentucky Derby. But 
the first teg 'of the American 
' triple crown is run over only 
10 furlongs and he is by 
Persian Bold and out of a 
mare by Floribunda, which is 
not a stying pedigree. 

A recent discussion with our 
Irish correspondent helped to 
rule all four from there out of 
my calculations. Wise Comr- 
tellor has only been drafted in 
as a late replacement in an 
open year for Imperial Falcon, 
while Fioravanti has still to 
justify alt the superlatives that 
have been lavished on . his.

group one Prix Lupin at Longchamp last 
month and represents good each-nay value at 
current odds. 

runner-up in ihc 10-furlong Kentucky Derby, 
and unruffled by Ihe Churchill Downs 
razmatazz. Clive Brittain's hardy traveller 
should take the pre-race parade in his stride. 
Despite his trainer’s optimism, serious doubts 
remain about ihe horse's stamina. Will be re- 
united with bis Kentucky partner. Chris 
McCarron. who gets first taste of Epsom in the 
two races preceding the Derby.. 

DANCING BRAVE: Breeding pundits see 
little chance of this Lyphard coll staying the 
Derby trip, contrary to jockey Greville 
Starkey, who declared the colt would stay six 
miles after his impressive 2.000 Guineas 
triumph. Significantly. Britain’s senior rider, 
successful on Shirley Heights in 1978. has 
remained loyal throughout to this unbeaten 
colt, who is blessed with instant acceleration 
and a perfect temperament. The previous 
three Guineas winners. Lomond. El Gran 
Scnor and Shadeed failed to complete the 
double - the last was Nijinsky in 1970 - but 
Pulborough’s No I hope has the class to 
overcome any stamina deficiency and can give 
Guy Harwood his first Derby victory. 

FARAWAY DANCER Close second to 
Dancing Brave on soft going in Newmarket's 
Craven Stakes, where he finished in from of 
stable companion. Mashkour. Later ran out a 
convincing winner over 1 0 furlongs at Chester. 
Has a stamina doubt and a recent bruised heel 
cannot have helped his preparation. Neverthe- 
less. if fully fit can provide Willie Ryan wiih a 
memorable first Derby ride. 

FIORAVANTI: His trainer, David O'Brien, 
won with Secreio in 19S4. but this Northern 
Dancer colt needs fast ground to show his irue 
ability. Had worthwhile farm os ajuvenile. but 
failed to cope with gluepot conditions in the 
Irish 2,000 Guineas. Will be partnered by 
thecxperienccd Christy Roche, who tri- 
umphed on Sccreto in 1984. 

FL ASH OF STEEL: Justified heavy sup- 
port in the Irish 2.000 Guineas by outlasting 
fellow country man Mr John, but is unlikely to 
be as effective on today's faster surface. This 
son of Kris is trained by Dermot Weld, who 
has won cverv major prize in Ireland. 

JAREER This Northern Dancer colt cost a vearling. and looked an exciting 
prospect fast September when w-mning at 
Yarmouth in tremendous style- Subscqucnuy 
disappointed in the Dewhurst and is the only 
horse in today’s race without a previous run 
this season. Home reports and heavy backing 
(down from 40-1 10 1.2-0 suggest he may be 
about to recapture his sparkle. An exciting 
spare ride for Brian Rouse. 

MASHKOUR Tends to run. in snatches, 
but stays strongly and has followed the 
example of his stable companion, last year's 
winner. Slip Anchor, by capturing the 
Lingfield trial His sire was the mfier, Irish 
River, but he has the Washington Internation- 
al winner. Karabas, on his dam's side. A lazy 
colt, but is preferred by Steve Cauthen to 
Faraway Dancer and has a genuine each-way 

MR JOHN: Runner-up and slightly imped- 
ed behind Flash Of Steel in the Irish 2,000 
Guineas. A late booking for the competent 
Tony Ives, bul completely dismissed by the 
English bookmakers. However, his trainer, 
Liam Browne, saddled Carlingford Castle to 
finish second to Teenoso in 1983. 

NISNAS: Talented trainer Paul Cole has 
made a great start from bis new base at 
Whatcombe and is certain this son of Tap On 
Wood will give a good account of himself. Beat 
Henry Cecil's highly-regarded Verd-Antique at 
Lingfield. Philip Waldron (second on Master 
Willie in 1980) takes the mount. 

NOMROOD: Paul Cole's stable jockey, 
Richard Quinn, has plumped for this Alleged 
colt, who did not have the best of runs when 
hemmed in on the rails behind Shahrastani at 
York. Earlier had held off Sirk in Chester Vase 
and could bely his generous odds. 

SHAHRASTANI: The Aga Khan, trainer 
Michael Stoute and jockey Walter Swinburn, 
won in brilliant style with subsequent kidnap 
victim Shergar in 1981. This colt, who has 
attracted heavy ante-post support in the last 
few days, represents the same partnership. Has 
won the two mosL important trials this year - 
the Guardian at Sandown and Mecca-Dante at 
York. Failed to produce any fireworks at York 
with a workmanlike performance, but he looks 
the one to dent any chink in Dancing Brave’s 

SHARROOD. Royal trainer Dick Hero and 
jockey Willie Carson won in 1979 and 1980 
wiih Troy and Henbit, respectively, but are 
unlikely to be anything more than mildly 
hopeful that Sharrood can give them a third 
success. Held by Dancing Brave on Guineas 
form and failed to handle the heavy going 
when third in Irish equivalent. 

SIRK: Clive Brittain's second string, but has 
made steady improvement and was much 
closer to Shahrastani at York than at 
Sandown. Sandwiched in between was his last- 
finish mg second to Nomrood at Chester. 
Should be suited by the Epsom gradients and 
is worth considering as a long-shoL 

THEN AGAIN: Ex-Irish performer. Highly 
rated by his Newmarket-based Italian trainer, 
Luca Cumani. and has been impressing 
workwaichers on the gallops recently. Winning 
a modest Pontefract maiden hardly seems the 
ideal preparation for this prestigious event, 
but then again, who knows? 

WISE COUNSELLOR Vincent O’Brien is 
the greatest living trainer of Derby winners 
with six triumphs, so anything he runs has to 
be considered. The Alleged colt is a late 
substitute for Imperial Falcon after impressing 
in a gallop at Ballydoyle on Saiutday morning. 
Did not look like a Derby winner when caught 
by Toca Madera at Leopardstown, but will 
have the benefit of PaL Eddery, (Gnrady and 
Golden Fleece) in the saddle. 

FINAL VERDICT: 1 Dancing Brave, 2 
Shahrastani, 3 Allez Milord. 

Dick Hinder 

top form 

Guy Harwood, who saddles 

Danring^Brave and Allez Mi- 
lord, far today’s Derby, showed 
that his Puiborough stable is in 
top form by landing a double 
with Santella Mac and Propen- 
sity at Salisbury yesterday. 

Santella Mac defied top 
weight impressively in die 
Tryon Handicap, romping 
home by five lengths, while 
Gerald Leigh's newcomer 
Propensity easily landed the 
odds in the Rubbing House 
Maiden Fillies Stakes. 

A1 Trui proved himself in 
good shape for the Wokingham 
Handicap at Royal Ascot by 
landing the Dura ford Handicap 
for the second year running. 
Given a fine ride by Michael 
Wigham, the top weight was 
held up uuti] well inside the 
final finrioTig then burst through 
to beat Padre Pio and Ameghino 

Hills in dual

No. matter how be gets on in 
the Derby aboard the outsider, 
Sharrood, Willie Carson will 
have plenty to smile about at 
Epsom today if, as I suspect, he 
lands a first and last race double 
on Sameek (2.0) and Maazi 

After running so wed behind 
Zaibaq at Newmarket, Sameek 
lived up to that promise at York 
when he won on his _ next 
appearance and I take him to 
beat the useful filly. Regency 
Fide, in the Woodcote Stakes. 
Maazi, who I saw go well in a 
gallop at Whatcombe a week 
ago, may not be the most 

predictable of individuals. 
Nevertheless be goes wed for 
Carson — as anybody who saw 
them Win at Newbury ; last . 
Autumn' will -testify — and L 
think that he should be capable 
of preventing Shinaireekh from 
winning the Craven Stakes for a 
second time in as many years. 

Boltin Emily, who was beaten 
only a neck on her last venture 
south from Yorkshire where she 
is trained by Peter Easterby, is 
taken to go one better in the 
Nighlrider Handicap, prin- 
cipally at the expense of Perion. 
who has won over todays 
course and distance already this 
season. Afterwards Perion went 
on to beat Bridge Street Lady by 
a length at Chester. A line 

through Bridge Street Cady 
gives Bollin Emily a few pounds 
in hand of Perion now. 

Open though H is with 18 
standing their ground. tbe-Silver 
Seal Handicap still looks a good 
opportunity for" Master Line, 
who trotted up by five lengths in - 
a similar race at Sandown- - - 

At much the same time 
Cfchrafaerie is expected to win 
the Ennerdale Water Maiden 
Stakes at Carlisle for Luca 
Cumani, who sent Fish ’n’ Chips 
north from Newmarket to the 
Cumbrian trade to win the same 
race 12 months ago. 

At Ripon this evening all eyes 
will be on Storm Hero to see 
whether he can become Michael 
Dickinson's first winner for 

Robert Sangster in the ,EBF 
Appleyard Motors Stakes. Dur- 
ing .his rebent open day at 
Mamon. Dickinson went dn 
record as saying that this colt by 
Storm Bird out ofthat test mare, . 
Nobte Marks, is the most fm* : 
want of his two-year-old colts. 

Today's nap though . is en- : 
trusted to Daarkmn to win the 
Allton Group Stakes at the -end 
of an evening during which 
Teleprompter's young half sis- 
ter, TaMe-Tnrnmg is expected 
to go dose in the Jennifer 
Browning Handicap. 

Daarkora looked a surefire 
future winner for his talented 

S Newmarket trainer. Alec 
rt, when be ran-Dalgadiyr 
to a length at Windsor.

Banke in 
control of 


Dana Banke, the leading 
qualifier for the Amate ur 
championship ax Royal Dor- 
noch last year, promised to do 
so again yesterday. With a 
Quarter of the field still out on 
the two courses, the Californian, 
24, led by two strokes from 
a young Scot, Jim Miffigan, with 
two rounds of 72. Peter 
McEvoy, twice a previous win- 
ner, shared third place on 145 
with two other players. 

All five would hope to be 
nong the eight top players 
eded for the match-play 
starting today. Under a new 
format only the first eigbt in the 
qualifying would be taking their 
appropriate positions in the 
thaw. For the remainder the 
automatic draw was scrapped 
and their names would fall out 
of a bat as fortune and busy 
fingers would dictate. Theoreti- 
cally, it should lead to some 
interesting matches today. 

On a grey, cold morning, with 
a fierce wind to add 10 the 
misery, Banke seemed imper- 
vious. to the . conditions at St 
Aimes, as. perhaps befits a 
student of psychology geared to 
“dealing noth any adversity*', 
and his sturdy frame (be is only 
5ft 7in and weighs 12st) never 
gave a .faint of faltering 
composure: - 

Even a six at the long fifth left 
him totally unruffled, outwardly 
at least, and he channelled inch 
irritation as he may have felt 
into two big woods over the 
back of the 520-yard sixth. From 
there he made a marvellously 
controlled Stile pitch that only 
_i '~illy disobeyed his 
* “go in’*. 

St Annes seemed to be playing 
harder yesterday than Royal 
Lytham. where the rest of the 
action takes place ibis week, and 
Banke’s 71 there yesterday may 
perhaps have been even more 
praiseworthy than his similar 
score at Lytham the day before. 

As for Milligan, even the 
Scottish camp foDoweis have 
their doubts about his staying 
power. In the last year or two he 
has been runner-up 10 times in 
important competitions and has 
yet to register a victory. “This 
week." -be said yesterday, “may 
be tbe breakthrough.” 

He is strong enough and long 
enough to master any course but 
his putter can behave erratically. 
Three of his four birdies sprang 
from long putts, -smoothly 
holed, but elsewhere he took 
three putts on two occasions and 
missed from four feet for his par 
four at the 17th. Sadly, he drove 
into a bunker at the last. 

Whether or not the break- 
time he is 

play opponent for players of 
greater prestige-

Warning for youngsters 

DERBY: Essex (20pts) bt Derby- 
shire (J) by 1 16 runs. 

After further delays for rain 
and some necessary contrivance 
by the captains. Derbyshire 
surrendered meekly against the 
combination of Lever and 
Childs to give Essex their second 
successive championship 

They will rarely have an easier 
one. bowling Derbyshire out in 
under four hours on a wicket 
which gave all the bowlers some 
help, but was by no 

A declaration and a fo r fe iture 
left Derbyshire to score 257 m a 
minimum of 76 overs when play 
began at 1.10. If it was not an 
easy target in the conditions, it 
was one which a confident 
batting side would have re- 
garded as attainable. 

Derbyshire, however, are not 
a confident side at the momen t, 
and with Fletcher resuming the 
Essex captaincy in tbe absence 
of Gooch, who had left to Join 
his wife with twins expected 
imminently, their uncertainties 
were ruthlessly exploited. Lever, 
who took five for 32. Foster, 
who rued some dropped 
catches, and Childs main tamed 
the pressure relentlessly. 

Any feint hope that Derby- 
shire would make some fist ofit 
lasted perhaps 11 overs, the 
time it took Essex to remove 
Barnett, who had shown some 

After one escape Barnett was 
bowled by Childs as Fletcher 
turned to spin from one end, 
alternating his seam bowlers at 
the other and tbe innings ground 
promptly to a haft. Anderson 
and IfiD dropped anchor. Hill 
showing bis full repertoire of 
obdurate, defensive prods. 

That approach suggested they 
had not a s sessed the riuuttion 
correctly, but with the help of 
dropped catches, the pair sur- 

vived until Lever returned to rip 
the innings apart, swinging and 
seaming the ball to take four for 
10 in 33 deliveries. 

Anderson was the first to go 
after a stay of 30 overs. Wright 
and Morris, who might have 
brought much needed aggres- 
sion to the proceedings, fol- 
lowed promptly as Fletcher at 
mid-off and Hardie at short-leg 
held on to excellent catches. 
Hill’s sojourn ended as he 
prodded once again, this time to 
give East bis second of three 
straightforward chances, and by 
tea Derbyshire's cause looked 

Thai view was confirmed 
immediately afterwards as East 
removed Roberts, the one 
remaining batsman, with a 
smart legside stumping. The 
spin of Childs and finally 
Acfield completed a simple 
demolition, even though Finney 
resisted with a determination 
not always shown by his

Appeal date for Botham 

Ian Botham is likely to have 
his appeal against a two-month 
ban from cricket heard by the 
Cricket Counts! at Lord’s a week 

When Botham was sospended 
last Thwsday fry the Test and 
Cearaty Cricket Board (TCCB) 
following drug-taking revela- 
tions, his soUotor, Alan Herd, 
gave notice that he woold appeal 
to tbe sport’s highest authority 
— the Cric ket CoanriTs appeals 

Doaaid Carr, secre ta ry of tbe 
TCCB, said yesterday: “We 
have pencilled ra Jane 12 bat ft 
does depend oa one or two 
members of tbe committee 
c n a fimriH g theft avaBabflfty." 

The appeals committee will 
consist of as independent chair- 
man — a Queen's Counsel — and 
representatives from the TCCB, 
MCC, tbe National Cricket 
Association and the Cricketers* 
Association. They have the 
power to confirm, reduce or 
increase Botham’s ban from aO 
major cricket, which forces him 
to miss four Test matches and 
foar one-day interna ti o n al s . 

Because of tbe early date set 
for his appeal, Botham may not 
seek an injunction in tbe High 
Conrt to plead restraint of trade. 
The management committee <rf 
Botham’S county dob, Somerset, 
meet today and are e xp ec ted to 
discuss the ban.

Lancashire came desperately 
dose 10 bearing Warwickshire 
in an exciting finish at Old 
Trafford yesterday. Set to make 
270 to win in S! overs, Mendis, 
Chadwick and Fairbrofoer 
marip the running as Lancashire 
went full tilt towards a third 
victory, which would have given 
them a rewarding lead of 32 
points at foe head of foe 
Britannic Assurance county 
championship. Alas, Lancashire 
failed fry five runs, despite a 
magnificent effort by Maynard, 
Simmons and, lastly, Allott. 

It had rained during the 
morning, so that it was 2.0 
before Warwickshire could be- 
gin again ax 60 for two, 
Kallicharran, 28, Amiss, 22. At 
120 for four, of which Asif Din 
made 40 not out, Gifford de- 
clared,' leaving Lancashire to 
aim at a target between five and 
six an over. 

Gloucestershire’s declaration 
overnight at 1S3 for six meant 
that when eventually Leicester- 
shire started out in their second 
innings at 2.20 it was with a lead 
of 86. Grave&ey’s opening bats- 
men became opening bowlers 
and Potter and Cobb gleefully 
helped themselves to 149 runs 
from 21 overs before Gower 
responded by making his chal- 
lenge. In this Gloucestershire 
were required to make 236 runs 
to win off 32 overs. That they 
got there 10 win by six wickets, 
enabling them 10 move into 
second place in the table, was a 
praiseworthy effort, 100 , and in 
this they could thank three of 
four front-line batsmen and 

At Horsham the match be- 
tween Sussex and Somerset was 
abandoned without a ball being 
bowled, a championship first of 
doubtful merit for this charming 
little ground. A similar fete 
befell another six counties in 
matches at the Oval. Southamp- 
ton and Tunbridge Wells. 

Middlesex, the champions, 
came away from their match 
with Surrey with a paltry five 
points and go to New Road to 
meet Worcestershire today with 
a much weakened side under 
Radley’s captaincy. With Clarke 
away over foe next fortnight 
having his ailing right leg put 
right. Gray, who replaces him, is 
sure to make foe most of his 
opportunity when he reappears

A dream 
true for 

From Rex Bellamy 
Tennis Correspondent 

Johan Kriek can hardly be- 
lieve that life is being so good to 
him. He would have treated it as 
a joke if anybody had told him a 
fortnight ago that be would be in 
foe semi-finals of foe French 
championships. But Kriek got 
there yesterday by beating 
Guillermo Vilas 3-6, 7-6, 7-6, 7- 
6 in three hours and 49 minutes. 
“This is like Disneyworld.” 
Kriek said later. “It's a little 
fantasy. I'm still dreaming.” His . 
next opponent, Ivan Lendl, - 
should wake him up. 

Kriek is joyously confused 
because, prominent though he 
has often been in foe Australian, 
United Stales and Wimbledon 
championships, be has never 
given himself a chance on foe 
slow courts of Paris. His only 
previous appearance was in 
1979, when he lost in foe first 
round. But Kriek has played as 
if the patterned maneouvring of 
shale-court tennis was his natu- 
ral game: He also bad the luck to 
get past foe injured Yannick - 
Noah without playing. 

Yesterday Kriek began rather 
nervously. He was playing on 
foe packed centre court against a 
shale-court expert who was 
champion in 1977 and has been 
runner-up three times. Kriek 
also suspected that many people 
were asking, “How long is this 
guy's luck going to lafe?" He did 
not need luck. He did need a lot 
of menial, technical and tactical 
discipline. “This was the tough- 
est match of my life,” he said. “I 
don't think I have ever before 
felt pressured like that. 1 had to 
guts it out, I bad to serve well 
and I had to ^ if i» risks.” 

Kriek was also patient, dis- 
crete and sound in sparring for. 
openings. He was never flashy. 
“I was surprised.” Vilas said. 
“He look all the risks and played 
very short. It's difficult to do 
that without making mistakes. 
When he played short I had to 

go in and hit an approach shot — 
and he played a good lob or a . 
good passing shot- It is very ’ 
difficult to play a long match the 
way he played, but be did." 

Both are so heavily muscled . 
that this might have been a Mr 
Universe contest. Vilas special- 
izes in lop-spins but can chip his ' 
backhand and often clouts a 
fierce forehand down the line. 
Yesterday he wore a black 
bandeau at a slightly rakish 
angle. Kriek. who wore Mack.

They provided an engaging

— notably a climax that began 
when Vifas, serving at 3-5 and

won 13 points out of 16. “The 
momentum switched so much,". ; 
Kriek said. “It was like a dark 
cloud coining at me." 

Among a host of memorable • 
shots, two are deeply etched in ■ 
the memory. Kriek hit a win-i 
ning forehand down foe line- 
around the net post, with his 
racket almost entangled in : 
courtside bags and furniture. 
When Kriek was serving at 5-4 
and 30-all in the fourth set he • 
directed a volley behind foe ; 
Argentinian's back. Somehow ! 
Vilas whirled and nudged down 
the line a backhand lob that- 
landed on the junction of base-

amazing — an incredible shot," •_ 
Kriek said.

European TV 

may seek Cup 
rights refund 

From John Carlin, Mexico City 

In the midst of what they 
call “the biggest disaster in the 
history of sports 
broadcasting”, the European 
telev ision companies warned 
FIFA officials here yesterday 
that immediate measures 
must be taken to improve the 
“catastrophic” World Cup 
service provided so far by 
Mexican TV. 

The chief representative in 
Mexico of the European 
Broadcasting Union (EBU), 

Jarie Hoeysaeter, of Norway, 
said the TV companies would 
seek a refund on the 49 
million Swiss francs they paid 
FIFA for the World Cup rights 

unless they made good on 
their contract and delivered 
what they promised in terms 
-'of quality transmissions. 

. “It is not easy to work here. 
It is difficult We are paying a 
lot of money and it is all going 
to hell,” Hoeysaeter said. 
Hoeysaeter. speaking on be- 
half of western and eastern 
European TV organizations, 
did not rule out a boycott of 
World Cup coverage but 
-thought it unlikely at the 

The central problem has 
been sound transmission. The 

second day of the World 
was described by EBU ot 
dais as “a catastrophe” For 
the Spain v Brazil and France 
v Canada games, only three 
organizations in Europe were 
able to broadcast live com- 
mentaries straight from the 

The Brazilian TV company, 
Bandeirantes, were still fum- 
ing yesterday morning. They 
approached the Brazilian gov- 
ernment in the middle of the 
match on Sunday, asking 
them to pressure the Mexican 
government to take action. 
“Brazil will support the EBU 
in every complaint,” an indig- 
nant Bandeirantes producer 

The Cararfian Broadcasting 
Corporation said the confu- 
sion was such that they were 
receiving West German televi- 
sion commentary during 
Canada's 1-0 defeat by France. 
Eventually, distraught at the 
abysmal transmission they 
were providing of their 
country's finest hour in foot- 
ball Canadian commentators 
had to report on the game via 
an ordinary telephone line. 

The Mexican TV company, 
Televisa, a vast private con- 
sortium, has been singled out 
as the guilty party. 

The head of the World Cup 
organizing committee. 
Guillermo Canedo, has joyful- 
ly declared this would be “the 
Communications World 
Cup” Canedo happens also to 
be a vice-president both of 
Televisa and of FIFA. 

on to a 
new deal 

By John Goodbody 

The Football Leagues weak- 
ened 1 barg ain ing position and 
their need to attract new spon- 
sors have resulted in an agree- 
ment worth only £6.2 million jo 
televise matches over the next 
two seasons. 

There will be live coverage, 
shared by BBC and ITV, of 14 
liame games per season, two 
Lmiewoods Challenge Cup (for- 
merly Milk Cup) semi-finals 
and the final an to be played on 
Sundays.. Them win also be 
recordings of League and 
Linlewoods Cup matches. 

In February 1985 the dubs 
reje c t e d a four-year deal worth 
just over £19 million. But that 
was before the tragctfics_ of 
Bradford and Brussels, foiling 
attendances, the threat of a. 
breakaway “super-league” and 
the recognition that recorded 
highli g h t* of the domestic game 
were no longer an outstanding 
sporting attraction on 

After 15 months of deadlock 
the League and television 
companies signed a £1-3 mHlum 
deal in January which expired at 
the end oflast season. 

Farther pressure has been pot 
on the League by Canon's 
decision to end their sponsor- 
ship. The new deal will be the 
principal attraction for their 
potential successors.

seat in the bid for points 

Paraguay pair fit 

Mexico Gty (Reuter) — 
Paraguay's two key men, Julio 
■ -.Cfcsar Romero and Roberto 
1 -Cabanas, have been pronounced 
'-fit for their country's opening 
•■ game against Iraq today. 

•I Both had niggling leg injuries 
■; but came through a rigorous 
.‘training session at the squad's 
•.."practice ground near the Aztec 
-i Stadium. Cabanas, a forward. 
“ and Romero, a skilful midfield 
IpiayCT, have an almost tele- 
■-paime understanding and are 
"vital to. the plans of the Para- 
,.guayan coach, Cayetano Re. 

J. Re, who played in Paraguay's 
.'-last appearance in the finals in 
1958, said his team would be 
; -going for goals against Iraq. 

However, his job of building the 
■' team has been hindered by the 
number of exiles in his squad 
I- but he believes that his mainly 
• , young and talented side could 

spring a few surprises. 

In Romero, aged 28, Paraguay 
have a player with the potential 
to leave a mark on the tour- 
nament. A star in the Brazilian 
side, Fluminense, after a spell 
with the New York Cosmos, he 
first linked up with with Ca- 
banas. aged 24, who (days in 
Colombia, more than six years 
ago in ' the Paraguayan youth 

Romero said: “We are both in 
good shape and the altitude has 
not affected us because we spent 
20 days in Bogota. The team is 
coming good at the right time.” 
But Romero, like Re. does not 
underestimate Iraq. He said: 
“They are fast and strong, their 
touch football is good and they 
will be difficult to beat.” 

Re said that the result of the 
Belgium-Mexico match would 
not influence his policy of attack 
against Iraq. 

From Stuart Jones 

Football Correspondent 

The Press conference after the 
first goalless draw of the World 
Cup finals began with an acrid 
note on Monday. A French- 
man, who could afford to dis- 
pense with the need for 
diplomacy, asked Jose Faria, the 
manager of Morocco, if he 
thought it was foir that people 
should have paid money to 
watch that game. 

Faria, a chain-smoking Brazil- 
ian, smiled. “We want to make 
the game beautiful,” he said. 
“But you can't do that all the 
time and particularly when you 
are malting your entrance in a 
tournament such as this. Some- 
times you have to dose the 
game up for your own 

He told the Frenchman that if 
he wanted “a beautiful game”, 
he should have gone to see 
Hungary earlier in the day. He 
implied that there is a high price 
to be paid for a lack of caution 
since the Magyars collapsed 
astonishingly against the Soviet 
Union, lost 6-0 and will now do 
well to reach the second round. 

Poland had more reason to be 

dissatisfied with a largely lifeless 
performance. The Moroccans 
said their European opponents 

seemed to be out of breath after 
only half an hour, although both 
sides found that running 
through the lengthy grass of the 

matches in the competition so

The manager, Miguel Mute, 
said yesterday: “It is sad to lose 
a player of Maceda's quality. 
This » a setback both for me 
and the team.” 

Universitario Stadium was 
more tiring than the relatively 
modest beat. 

Only after Urban had re- 
placed Dztekanowski did the 
Poles look as though they were 
attacking with a sharp sword 
rather than a heavy hammer. It 
was Urban who stretched Ezalti, 
Morocco's goalkeeper who has 
conceded only one goal in nine

The influence of Poland's 
older repr ese nt a ti ves, such as 
Boniek, Smolarek and BuncoL

defensive timidity. Piechniczek 
admitted “we lacked cohesion 
and didn't play as well as we 
can,” but be was disappointed 
merely that his players “didn't 
have the experience to know

cans, be refused to accept that 
Poland were in danger of not 
qualifying for the later stages.

yesterday when he won the 
Formula Two event at record

Vinery was all the sweeter for 
Reid, aged 29, from Banbridge, 
because Iasi year he twice retired 
while leading. 

The English riders, John 
-“Weeden and Neil Tux worth, 
-.were second and third, each 
reporting a trouble-free race in 
Vdry but windy conditions. The

Hardcastle missile is 
given triple warhead 

Sarah Hardcastle was yes- 
terday presented with the 
opportunity to launch a triple 
gold-medal attack at the 
Commonwealth Games next 
month. The England selectors 

have nominated the Southend 

youngster for the 400 and 800 

metres freestyle and 400 metres 

individual medley after she had 

erased doubts about her fitness 

at the Amateur Swimming 
Association championships and 

Commonwealth trials over the 


Miss Hardcastle, who wiH 
stan as the favourite for both 
freestyle events, settled her 
selection for the medley by 
winning the ASA title in a 
personal record 4m in 50.94sec 

— the second fastest in the 

Commonwealth this year. It was 

enough to convince selectors 

that she could handle three 
tough individual events, plus 
the 4 x 200 metres freestyle 
relay, in Edinburgh. 

Miss Hardcastle, who seems 
to thrive on bard work, also 

wanted to compete in the sprint 

freestyle relay but declared her- 

self satisfied with her selections 
after returning from a morning 

The race programme in Edin- 
burgh works out kindly for the 
Olympic and European medal li 

winner. Miss Hardcastle faces 

two events on the opening day, 
the 400 metres medley and the 
4 x 200 metres freestyle relay, 

then she will have a day’s rest 

before tackling the 400 metres 

The beats for the 800 metres 
freestyle, where she is nearly 
5see foster than her nearest 
Commonwealth rival will be on 
the fourth day, with the final the 
following day. Selectors have

for Todd 

By Jemy MacArdmr 

Mark Todd, New Zealand's 
Olympic individual gold medal 
winner has entered a three-year 
sponsorship contract with 
Merrill Lynch Enrope Ltd, 
worth £45,000 in the first year. 
The sponsorship, one of die 
lamest in three-day eventing, 
win not endanger Todd’s ama- 
teur states. 

S tani sl as Yassnkorkh, the 
chairman of the American- 
owned company and himself a 
keen horseman — he plays polo 
and hunts with the VWH — said 
it was a “lucky accident” that 
the company heard Todd's for- 
mer contract with Woohrest 
International Ltd was coming to 
an end jnst when Merrill Lynch 
were thinking of becoming more 
involved in sport sponsorship. 

Todd, who wBl remain at 
Cholderton in Wiltshire until 
the 1988 Sooth Korea Olympics, 
has a strong team of horses. At 
the head is the outstanding 
Charisma IV, winner of the 
Olympic gold medal, twice the 
nmner-ap at Ba dm i nto n and 
tenth at the world champion- 
ships in Australia last month. 

If Charisma, who wDl be 16 hi 
1988, is too old for the Olym- 
pics, Todd has three enviable 
fesA-ssp horses in Mrs Nyda 
Prena's Any Chance, fifth at 
this year's Badminton, the 10- 
y ear-old larking About and Mr 
and Mrs Michael Wdbnan's 
Michaelmas Day, a highly 
promising eight-year-old who 
won last year's Rotherfield three 
day event and completed at 
Badminton rtiia year. 


Britons set to dominate ‘extra’ final 

^ By Keith Macklin 

The first Commonwealth final 
“of the World Individnal 
'"Championship win take place 
.'next Sunday at Belle Vae. 
■ Manchester. Sixteen riders wOl 
■'contest this additional round in 
vtbe long trail to the final in 

This extra championship 
■ ’event comes about because in the 
n’past Australia and New Zealand 
"'have been given automatic entry 
If or tbeir winning rider into the 
-'Overseas final. The Australian 
-and New Zealand control boards 
have long felt that tbeir best 
rider has not necessarily been 
-the one who secured a one-off 
- victory in the domestic final. 
iThey asked to be .allowed to 
Dontinate several top riders to 
^compete against the best of the 
British riders and the result is 
the introdnetion of this 

Commonwealth final into an 
already crowded calendar. 

There will be four Austra- 
lians and three New Zealanders 
lining up against Britain's top 
nine at Bette Vae on Sanday. 
The Australians are led by Steve 
Baker, a former European junior 
champion who has ridden in 
E ngla n d for Halifax and Shef- 
field. Baker rides in the German 
Bandesliga. Steve Regeling 
rides for King's Lynn in the 
British League and Troy Batter 
was in Oxford's grand slam side 
last year bat has dooe little 
riding since December when he 
broke his leg. The fourth 
Australian is a rider whose 
credentials are naknown in ftk 
country, Alan Rrvett. 

New Zealand's three repre- 
sentatives are all experienced 
riders. David Baigh, of Cov- 
entry, has never quite fulfilled 
his early promise; Larry Ross is 

, on loan with Bradford by 
of his parent dab. 
Belle Vne; and Mitch Shim, 
who rides for Reading in the 
British League, broke ms leg in 
1985, and has not regained his 
confidence and form. 

Any of these riders amid 
cause a surprise bat no one 
seriously expects an Australian 
or . New Zealand competitor to 
bead the qualifiers. Indeed, they 
could all struggle to make the cot 
for the Overseas GnaL 

The British challenge will not 
be be ad ed by the England 
captain, Simon Wigg, after his 
dismal machine-dogged failure 
in the British final at Coventry 
on Sunday. Neil Evitts ln- 
trodneed drama and pathos test 
Sanday by saying that ho 
wanted desperately to win in 
memory of his Bradford cof- 
leagne and the reigning British 

champion, Kenny Carte-. He 
proceeded to fulfil his ambition 
and head the British qdalifiers. 

Next Sunday's meeting and 
the Overseas final will be foogN 
out against the backgroond of 
Danish d omin a ti on of speedway 
racing and tbe uncom fo rtable 
feeling that C undersea or Niel- 
sen ar one of then- compatriots 
will take the crown in Katowice 
despite the best that Britain, 
Poland, the United States, 
Australia and New Tiwhaii can 

Nevertheless. Smiday's com- 
petition could produce . some 
lively and spectacular racing. 
Chris Morton will fancy himself 
on his own track and it will be in- 
teresting to watch ttie yotmg 
National League rider, Paal 
Thorp, who has made rapid 
strides and looks a top British 
League rider of the fntnre. 


Lowe is new coach at 
high-flying Wigan 

By Keith Macklin 

Wigan yesterday confirmed 
the rumour that has swept 
through Rogfry League during 
the past few weeks by announc- 
ing that their new coach will be 
the New Zealand international 
coach, Graham Lowe. 

In signing Lowe, Wigan will 
part company with tbeir joint 
coaches, Colin Clarice and Alan 
Mclnnes, a remarkable move 
when it is considered the pair 
have steered Wigan to the 
Challenge Cup, the John Flayer 
Trophy and .the Lancashire Cup 
during the last year. 

Wigan have pursued Lowe for 
several months. He made his 
reputation as the coach who led 
New Zealand to victory over the 

hitherto an-cangnerfog Austra- 
lians at Brisbane, and last winte 
he was coach of tbe Kiwi touring 
side who shared tbe three-match 
international series with Great 

Ironically, Lowe is an Austra- 
lian who was imported by New 
Zealand to sharpen their inter- 
national side when the game in 
New Zealand was in the dol- 
drums. He will take over his 
duties at Central Park in August. 

Hie Wigan vice-chairman, 
Maurice Lindsay, said the de- 
cision to part company with 
Clarke and Mclnnes had been 
tough to make, but efforts to 
absorb them into the «»wW"a 
structure under Lowe would not 
be workable.

Ferguson has 

right blend 

Every manager is, to an 
extern, at the mercy of his 
players. A few. such as Billy 
Bingham, occasionally con- 
vert water into drops of wine. 
Sometimes, like Ally Mac- 
Leod, they turn wine into 
water. Today's match be- 
tween Scotland and Denmark 
is as much a test of Alex 
Ferguson as of his Scottish 

An amiable, approachable 
man, he has brought Scotland 
to the brink of the competition 
in a rational mood and with- 
out the hollow euphoria of 
1978. Euphoria would scarce- 
ly be possible, of course, when 
queuing up to meet Denmark, 
West Germany and Uruguay. 
Yet this is the first time since 
be succeeded Jock Stein late 
last year that Ferguson is in a 
competitive situation from 
which there is no hiding, if we 
exclude the rough-and-tumble 
play-off with Australia. 

His squad face the impres- 
sive Danes at Neza. a dilapi- 
dated. hugely over-populated 
suburb of Mexico City, with 
fewer selection doubts than 
most of the 24 nations in the 
tournament, but still with the 
dilemma of which formation 
to use to counter Sepp 
Piontek's 3-5-2 line-up. 
Ferguson's decision will help 
determine the outcome. 

In the first half of last week's 
first friendly in Los Angeles 
Miller played as sweeper be- 
hind two markers . Gough and 
McLeisb, also in a 3-5-2 
formation, but looked less 
than comfortable, and the 
Scots reverted lo 4-4-2 in the 
second halt with Malpas re- 
turning from midfield to Icfi 
back. The balance was better. 

From David Miller, Mexico City 

Ferguson has to decide 
whether Miller and McLeish, 
his Aberdeen centre-backs for 
eight years, are competent as 
markers to hold Laudrup and 
Elkjaer without cover, possi- 
bly the most dangerous com- 
bination in the tournament; 
and whether a line of four, 
Strachan, Souness. Ailken and 
Nicol. can outmanoeuvre 
Denmark's five by using 
Gough and Malpas to add 

pressure down the flanks. 

Scotland are not without 
talent; it is bow they use it that 
will count. Milter and 
McLeish may be experienced, 
and underestimated, some 
say. having dealt with Bayern 
and Real Madrid. Today will 
tell, for sure. 

Ferguson said yesterday 
that he was expecting Souness 
and Strachan. two of his most 
experienced players, "to im- 
pose themselves". Souness 
certainly did that at Wembley 
recently, as England will re- 
call. yet Souness, whose pace 
may be fading, could be fully 
stretched by the mobility of 
Lerby and the rest, from 
whom Molby is missing be- 
cause of fatigue. 

Sirachan's speed could un- 
hinge the Danes but the 
altitude is predictably having 
alarming effects, as was evi- 
denced when Argentina 
sagged with empty legs in the 

Three beers for the Danes 
in their ‘group of death’ 

Sepp Piontek, Denmark's 
West German manager, de- 
scribes his team as "the South 
Americans of Europe” and 
promises that they will play 
their attractive, attacking style 
of football against Scotland 
today. He says his players will 
not approach the game any 
differently because of the alti- 
tude and heat. 

“We are a strong, technical 
side and we like lo go 
forward,” he says. “Thai’s the 
way we will play. We had 10 
days' training in Colombia 
and the players had no great 
difficulty gettng used to the 
thin air and altitude. Thai's no 
longer a problem for us.” 

Denmark delighted the 
game's followers with their 
refreshingly open style at the 
European championship in 
France two years ago when 
they reached the semi-finals. 

Piontek, who has earned 
much credit for transforming 

Football party 

Madrid (Renter) — Cam- 
paigning for Spain’s general 
election on Jane 22 stops dead 
these days in the face of an 
opponent no political party 
dares challenge — football. 
Daily 8 to 10pm television 
broadcasts of World Cop 
games from Mexico have up- 
set the schedule of political 
rallies nsnally held precisely 
during that time. Bat a centre 
and a left wing party are using 
Spain's passion for football in 
their favour. They are setting 
op giant television screens at 
their rallies to offer supporters 
coverage of games. 

Denmark into a major soccer 
power, says his players' flair 
and ball skills come from the 
peculiarities of the Danish 
mentality. “The Danes are the 
South Americans of Europe,”

the Wessex Roof 
—a permanent 
answer to 
leaking flat roofs 

To anyone who has been 
afflicted with the problem of 
water penetration associated 
with flat roofs, it must have 
seemed that there was never 
going to be an answer to this 
continual problem. Well, at 
long last, the problem is 
solved. A nationally based 
company with branches from 
Scotland to the Channel 
Islands now offers a product 
which will put an end to 
leaking flat roofs once and 
for all. The G1 <jv« Fibre 
system is based on the latest 
resin and glass fibre 
techniques, "which are 
especially suited for flat 
roofs, and its worth has been 
tried and tested in practical 
demonstrations all over the 
country. This product is 
fitted by our experts and can 
be used on any flat roof,

garage or home extension to

he says. “They are quite

Denmark are in a group that 
has been called the “group of

includes West Germany and

Denmark's three opponents

Mexico Gty (Reuter) — 
Diego Maradona stamped his 
class on the World Cup as 
Argentina opened their pro- 
gramme with a 3-1 victory 
over South Korea in the 
Olimpico stadium in Mexico 
City on Monday. Maradona 
set up all of his team's goals — 
scored by Jorge Valdano (two) 
and Oscar Ruggeri - despite 
being repeatedly fouled by 
Korean defenders. 

“We did not think South 
Korea would be that tough but 
we still won, although it was 
not easy,” Maradona, who can 
expea another tough ride 
when Argentina face Italy in 
their next match, said . 

Maradona was sent off after 
losing his temper against Bra- 
zil during the last World Cup 
and the manager. Carlos 
Bilardo, was delighted with his 
self-control this time. 

Maradona was fouled 10 
times. He may well have 
wondered what had happened 
to the directive given to 
referees to “let the ball-players 
play". The Koreans soon dis- 
covered ihai they could hack 
him down and draw only mild 
censure from the Spanish 
official. Victoriano Sanchez. 

in the first half Maradona 
was fouled seven times. He 
took better care of himself 
after the interval, having es- 
tablished Argentina's winning 
position. It remains to be seen 
whether he can retain his 
composure against less threat- 
ening opponents than South

last 20 minutes against South 
Korea. The men who may well 
be critical for Scotland are 
Ailken and Nicol. 

The burly Aitken, like 
Mullery for England in 1970, 
has the character to rise above 
the intimidating conditions 
while Nicol has suddenly 
come to the fore in his 
midfield role. “I believe we 
can win and the players have 
got to believe they can, too,” 
Ferguson has said. Nicol and 
Aitkin will. 

But what about Nicholas? 
Here is another doubt; This is 
the moment for Nicholas to 
reproduce his training form of 
the past month and show that 
his bubbling skills did not 
evaporate when be left Celtic. 
For him it is particularly a test 
of character as well as class: he 
could make Denmark's 
sweeper. Morten Olsen, feel 
his 35 years. 

It is expected that Ferguson 
will partner Nicholas with 
Archibald, his former Aber- 
deen player, as he did last 
week in Los Angeles. Few 
Scotsmen are fully aware of 
the extent of Archibald's self- 
less work over two seasons for 
Barcelona; and his shrewd 
positional running could help 
create the space for Nicholas. 
As yet, it is an unproved 

The Danes, who will proba- 
bly have Jesper Olsen, so 
unfaithfully treated at Old 
Traflbrd, on the left of mid- 
field. quite openly regard this 
as the easiest of three first- 
round matches. I suspect the 
Scots are going to have some 
difficulty proving them 
wrong; but they can do it if 
they are not too impatient 

Heads down: Zoitan, of Hungary (right), leans into the challenge as the Russian, Yaremchuck, moves in for the ball 

French pay 
to stylish 

After watching the Russians 
destroy Hungary 64 in tbeir 
opening match in Irapuato on 
Monday night, France, their 
next opponents in Group C, 
were quick to applaud what 
looks to be an exceptional 
team. Maxime Boss is, the 
French team's central defend- 
er, conceded: “The Russians 
are impressive, that's for sure. 
Collectively and individually 
they played an extraordinary 

Nonetheless Bossis, playing 
in his third World Cup finals, 
added a note of caution, stress- 
ing it remained to be seen “if 
they are exceptional or if their 
first opponents weren't good” . 
He knows, however, that his 
side's meeting with the Rus- 
sians next Thursday in Leon is 
smre to be tough. “They're a 
team who seem the best in the 
tour nament on one match,” he 

Bossis was most impressed 
by the speed of the Russians 
and their ability to strike as 
soon as they found a little 
space. “The heat and the 
altitnde did not seem to trouble 
them- We wfll have to be 
physically on top form.” 

Despite the drubbing the 
Hungarians took, Bossis 
hasn't written them off. They 
conceded two goals in the first 
four minutes and could not get 
back into the match. But 
Bossis added: “You cannot 
judge them on that. You did 
not see them because they 
could not free themselves.” 

Another Frenchman to take 
np the cry was the midfield 
player, Luis Fernandez, who 
drew attention to the Russians' 
physical attributes and their 
efficient style of play. “It wQ] 
be a difficult match, but don't 
think we are afraid of them 
because they won 6-0," he 
said. France would have to 
ensure they gave them less 
space than Hungary did. “For 
os it will be a good test to play 
against them because they're a 
good team.” 

“You can begin a competi- 
tion very strongly and you can 
have a difficult start but you 
can progress,” be said, con- 
trasting the Russian victory 
with France's shaky opening — 
a 1-0 win over Canada the 
previous day. 

There is little doubt the 
Russians brought the tourna- 
ment to life with their exhila- 
rating performance. After a 
drab two days, their attacking 
extravaganza was most wel- 
come. So complete was their 
demolition of Hungary that 
they could even afford to miss 
a penalty. Gyorgy Mezey, 
manager of the outclassed 
Hungarians, said: “The Gist 
two goals were like a Now to 
the head. After that it was very 
hard to come back. The team 
just didn't work.” 

Ominously, Russia accom- 
plished their stunning victory 
without three of their estab- 
lished stars, Oleg Blokhin, 
Alexander Chivadze and 'Oleg 
Protasov, who are recovering 
from illness or injury. Nine 
members of the succes sf ul 
Dynamo Kiev side took part in 
the game/including the substi- 
tute, Vadim Yevtushenko, who 
missed the penalty.

make a favourable first im- 
pression with the World Cup 
hosts Mexico. The Scots, who 
have been accused of- many 
things in the past, have been 
cirticized in the Mexican Press 
over their dress sense. 

After Scotland's arrival at 
Mexico City's international 
airport, the party were accused 
of looking “untidy and 
unkempt". One of the local 
daily newspapers described 
the officials as looking the part 
but the players reportedly 
arrived “with their shirts out- 
side their trousers”. 

A couple of players were 
even accused of appearing to 
fall asleep during the obliga- 
tory Press interview at the 
airport. It is nothing new to 
the Scots to receive adverse 
publicity. In Argentina eight 
years ago some newspaper 
reports claimed that their 
breakfost diet consisted of 

• Mexico Gty, ravaged by 
last year's earthquake, has 
turned to football and the 
World Cup to help ease the 

pain of that disaster. Before 
the host nation have even 
kicked a . ball in earnest, it 
seems that the entire popula- 
tion of the city is determined 
to celebrate with a vengeance. 

The Mexican capital, which 
already has the world’s worst 
traffic problem, has a new 
enemy — the football fan. Car 
horns blare incessantly 
through the night, almost 
drowning out the seemingly 
endless chants and sing in g . 

• There is no doubt about 
who is the most controversial 
figure in Mexico at the mo- 
ment — the Australian referee. 
Christopher Bambridge. His 
decision to disallow a goal for 
Spain against Brazil provoked 
heated dispute throughout the 
country. Even . newspaper 
leaders entered * into the 

The unfortunate referee had 
one significant disadvantage 
not experienced by the rest of 
the world. He was unable to 
study the video evidence 
which showed the ball had 
crossed the tine. 

Several newspapers were 

calling for the use of instant 
video replays to assist the 
referee in such cases. But the 
FIFA representative at the 
match, Thomas Wharton, 
said* “There's nothing that 
can be done: FIFA have no 
reason to look into the matter 
as the referee's derision is 
final And anyway, television 
is far from infallible. - 

• Britain could still see the 
World Cup winners next sea-, 
son even if England, Ireland 
and Scotland foil to triumph 
in Mexico. The English and 
Scottish Football Associations 
have agreed a date for their 
Rou 5 Cap meeting in 1987 
and have, not yet abandoned 
the idea of myiting a major 
world power toraake it a. 
three-ream competition. : ; . 

“It is still in our minds to 
include a top team from 
overseas and. obviously if 
Brazil or Uruguay won the 
World Cup they would be very 
attractive opposition” Ted 
Croker. the FA secretary, said 

Next season's match be- 
tween Scotland and England 
will be played on the Saturday 
following the FA Cup Final 

Dortmund escape relegation 

Dusseldorf (Reuter) — 
Bonissia Dortmund beat the 
promotion candidates, Fortu- 
na Cologne, 8-0 to save their 
place in the West German first 
division nearly five weeks 
after the 1985-86 season 

Their decisive performance 
ia the third play-off match 
delighted Borussia supporters 
in the 50,000 crowd who have 
fretted through a see-saw se-

division side took a 2-0 lead 
before a 3-1 Dortmund

scored just twice there.
