Mexican fans and police Tuesday after a cheerful cele- 
clashed early yesterday morn- bralion of Mexico's 2-1 first

Mexican capital, leaviig* near- gjum. Shortly after the game

and bis government — a 
repetition of the booing that 
drowned out the President's 
speech . at the World Cup 
inauguration on Saturday. 

Provoked, the police ar- ; 
rived in numbers. About 40 i 
police cars and vans circled I 
the monument, sirens wailing. ! 
Maybe 100 policemen ran into 
the crowds brandishing clubs. 
Most people ran, but others 
met the police charee with 


the roadside. A Mexican Red 
Cross worker said he believed 
two people had been killed. 
But neither report could be 
substantiated early yesterday. 

Police' were reported as 
saying 'that 45 people were 
taken to hospital. I saw 20 
people bleeding, concussed 
and badly bruised in the 
emergency ward of the Red 
Cross central hospital at three 
in the morning yesterday.-. . 

All were victims either of 
police clubbings or of a violent 
sector among the Mexican 
fans, who started hurling bot- 
tles both at the police and 
indiscriminately among a pan- 
icking crowd of several 
thousands 

A nurse at the Red Cross 
hospital said an. Italian youth 
had been knifed in the stom-

The gagging claim will add 
to Mr Norman Fowler's 
embarassraent over Mr 
Paige's sudden departure from 
the £70,000 a year post, with 
18 months of his contract still 
to run. 

He insisted that the resigna- 
tion would not effect general 
management in the health 
service and that Mr Len 
Peach, director of personnel 
on the board, who came to the 
department from the post of 
director of personnel for IBM. 
would be “a very good acting 
general manager". 


Questioned in the Com- 
mons on Mr Paige's departure 
he resisted opposition taunts 
aimed at persuading him to 
disclose the reasons for Mr 
Paige leaving, saying he had 
published in fill] the exchange 
of letters. 

But Mr Frank Dobson, 
Labour health spokesman, 
said Mr Fowler's comments 

Parliament ’ t 4 

raised more questions than 
they answered and. referring 
to Mr Paige, he asked “did he 
jump or was he pushed?”. 

Mr Fowler said that there 
had been no disagreement 
about resources. General 
management had already 
achieved cost improvement 
savings of £150 million. 

But he appeared to reject 
suggestions from MPs, includ- 
ing Mr Robert McCrindle, 
vice-chairman of the Conser- 
vative backbench health com- 
mittee. that the terras of 
reference for Mr Paige’s suc- 
cessor should be improved so 
that he had more support in 
standing up to vested interests 

Mr Philip Hunt, director of 
the National Association of 
Health Authorities, said Mr 
Paige's decision to go was 
disappointing. “But I do not 
think we should see this as the 
end of general management in 
the health service" 

Mr Trevor Clay, general 
secretary of the Royal College 
of Nursing, which has been 
cam pain ing to protect the role 
of nurses in the new manage- 
ment structure, said it did not 
want to see general manage- 
ment go. 

Mr Michael Meacher, 
Labour's chief social services 
spokesman, claimed that Mr 
Paige’s resignation “must her- 
ald the end of the road for the 
Tory - idea that the NHS 
should be managed like 
Sainsbury's".

Hospital 

crisis 

teams 

urged 

By Nicholas Timmins 
Social Services 
Correspondent 

Hospitals should set up 
"crisis management teams" to 
handle medical emergencies 
such as tile outbreak of 
Legionnaires' Disease at Staf- 
ford General Hospital last | 
year in which 101 patients 
were infected and 28 died, the 
interim report of the commit- 
tee of inquiry into the out- 
break, published yesterday, 
says. 

Such a team, chaired by a 
senior physician who would 
be relieved of most other 
duties, would have enabled 
hospital facilities and person- 
nel to be put to best use. and 
would have allowed better co- 
ordination of the investigation 
of patients 

The outbreak of the disease, 
the worst to have occurred in 
Britain, “highlights the need 
for all district general hospi- 
tals to prepare a plan to deal 
with serious medical emergen- 
cies analogous to those which 
already exist for major 
accidents,” the report says. 

It was published as health 
authorities were told by the 
Department of Health to in- 
spect cooling towers and evap- 
orative ’ condensers 
immediately, examining 
valves, drainage systems and 
connections to check that 
faults similar to those found at 
Stafford are not present. 

The report found that water 
in one of the hospital's cooling 
lowers became heavily con- 
taminated with the 
Legionnaires' bacterium. It 
entered the hospital's air con- 
ditioning system, spraying 
contaminated aerosol into the 
maternity unit, operating the- 
atres and the hospital's large 
outpatient department. The 
report recommends that “ur- 
gent consideration should be 
given to replacing any wet 
cooling tower with an air- 
cooled system". 

The inquiry. led by Sir John 
Badenoch. said that a commit- 
tee of experts on the use of 
biocides to control Legionella 
should be set up with urgency. 
Mr Barney Hayhoe. Minister 
for Health, announced yester- 
day that Dr Arthur Wright, 
chairman of the Public Health 
Laboratory Service in New- 
castle is to be chairman of 
such a committee.

‘Family 
life’ key 
to Tory 
policies 

By Philip Webster, 
Chief Political 
Correspondent 

The Prime Minister yester- 
day extolled die Govern- 
ment's achievements in im- 
proving family life and 
promised to go on building the 
“good society" by pursuing 
her policies of sound house- 
keeping and cutting income 
tax. 

In an upbeat speech, much 
in tune with the anti-permis- 
siveness drive already 
launched by several senior 
ministers, Mrs Thatcher em- 
phasized the caring record of 
the Government, including the 
reduction of the burden of 
taxation, and pledged not to 
relax in meeting the chal- 
lenges of unemployment, edu- 
cation and taw and order: 

Mrs Thatcher made her 
expected contribution to the 
Cabinet's public spending de- 
bate by speaking strongly in 
favour of tax cats, but hinted 
at the likelihood of increased 
spending in some areas. 

She said that it was simplis- 
tic to talk of a simple choke 
between tax cuts and public 
spending. “People who put it 
that way assume that the 
national cake is always the 
same size, and that a bigger 
slice here means a samller 
slice there. But that is just not 
true as the national cake is 
getting bigger." 

However, Mrs Thatcher 
dearly chose her address to 
the Conservative women's con- 
ference in London to underline 
her desire to establish the 
Tories as the party of the 
family in the approach to the 
next general election. 

Referring to what the party 
had done to help more people 
buy their own homes, mid 
purchase home computers, 
videos, deep freezes, tele- 
phones and central heating, 
Mrs Thatcher scorned the 
commentators who she said 
might think it was crudely 
materialistic to describe the 
everyday things families want- 
ed in. the .way she. had. 

She said: “Our aim is to 
spread these good things, and 
others, more widely, by leaving 
people with enough of their 
own money to affonl them". 

Countering suggestions that 
the Government hal ran out of 
steam, Mrs Thatcher said: 
“Stone say the time has come 
to relax. But success does not 
come to those who just want a 
bit of peace and quiet."

The world’s leading central

Thatcher will fight for 
CAP reform to ward 

off ‘world trade war’ 


THE TIMES THURSDAY JUNE 5 1986 


The Government is to take 
advantage of Britain’s forth- 
coRung presidency of the Eu- 
ropean Commission to 
campaign for a significant 
restructuring of the Common 
Agricultural Policy, which, it 
was claimed yesterday, could 
soon be the cause ofa renewed 
world trade war. 

The onslaught on the CAP 
was announced by Mr Nigel 
Lawson, Chancellor of the 
Exchequer, who said that the 
Government's priorities for 
Europe were to secure a 
genuine internal market, and 
to rid the EEC of the massive 
distortions caused by agricul- 
tural subsidies. 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher is to 
assume the presidency in July 
for six months and has sig- 
nalled her aim to launch a 
Europe-wide job-creation 
campaign, based on freeing 
the labour market and pro- 
moting enterprise and self- 
employment by cutting red 
tape and bureaucracy. 

Mr Lawson, speaking at the 
monthly meeting of the Na- 


By Edward Townsend 
dona] Economic Develop- 


ment Council, said that the 
agricultural issue created 
problems for primary produc- 
ing countries and led to a real 
risk of an agricultural trade 
war, which could spill over to 
a world trade war. 

The stand over CAP re- 
ceived the support of the 
TUC, with Mr Bill Jordan, the 
president of the Amal- 


new 


gamated Engineering Union, 
descrii ‘ 


thing the policy as “a sick 
and expensive joke in a world 
of starving people” 

A Treasury paper presented 
to the council said that one of 
the main problems lacing the 
commission was that its bud- 
get remained dominated by 
the CAP, which consumed 70 
per cent of finances. 

Agriculture was heavily 
subsidized in other important 
industrialized countries. In 
198S, $21 billion (£14 billion) 
was spent in the United States 
on agricultural subsidies. In 
Japan in 1984 the figure was 
SI 1.8 billion (£7.8 billion). 
Last year the commission 


budget contained $15 billion 
for agricultural subsidies and 
could be as high as $22 billion 
this year, the paper said. 

“In all these industrialized 
countries these subsidies are 
damaging the public finances 
and represent considerable 
misallocation of resources. 
They also damage agricultural 
production elsewhere through 
their impact on world mar- 
kets, such as causing exces- 
sively low world market prices 
and structural imbalances." 

The Treasury paper added 
that one particular conse- 
quence of the . 
don of agriculture in 
and US was the threat of a 
renewed trade war over US 
exports to Spain and Portugal 

“The Tokyo economic sum- 
mit emphasized the impor- 
tance of resisting and 
reversing protectionism and 
Strengthening the multilateral 
trading systems. There are 
not, as yet unfortunately, 
enough signs that the US is 
taking this commitment 
seriously."

Rag attack case 
put before Baker 


By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


The law lecturer attacked by 
five students at North East 
London Polytechnic as part of 
a Tag week stunt had her case 
referred last night to Mr 
Kenneth -Baker, Secretary of 
State for Education and 
Science. 

Miss Pamela Symes is in 
constant pain and unable to 
work two months after the 
attack last term. The four 
students - Brendan Crossey, 
Anthony Whittaker, Peter 
Sowerby and Colin Rox- 
burgh - were given formal rep- 
rimands by Mr Gerry Fowler, 
the polytechnic's rector, and 
the students' union was fined 
£ 200 . 

Last night Mr Robert 
Rhodes James, MP for Cam- 
bridge, in whose constituency 
Miss Symes lives, discussed 
the matter with Mr Baker, and 
sakL“It was not just a joke 
that got out of hand' but 
something much more malev- 
olent than that" 

Mr Rhodes James said that 
he thought the students should 
have been suspended by the 
polytechnic. 

Miss Symes, who uses her 
professional name but is mar- 
ried to Dr Hew Strachan, dean 
of Corpus Christi Cblkge. 
Cambridge, is receiving regu- 
lar physiotherapy treatment 
for a whiplash injury to her 
back. She is also suffering 


from a damaged nerve in her 
arm. 

She has written to the police 
asking them to take criminal 
proceedings against her assail- 
ants. Miss Symes says that 
criminal assault should be 
acknowledged for what it is 
and that the injuries she 
suffered should not be offset 
by the fact that the incident 
took place in rag week. 

Det Inspector David Mor- 
gan. bead of CID at Barking 
police station, said he had not 
received the letter.

A spokesman confirmed re-

Mrs Reagan's press secre-

Fire at News International 
plant ‘deliberately lighted’ 


Speaking at the Conserva- 
tive women’s conference in 
Westminster, London, he said 
the Government was “not 
afraid of radical reform”. His 
tax policies had two objec- 
tives: reduction, and reform. 

“Our record is good but not 
good enough,” he raid. “We 
have brought the basic rate 
down , from 33 per cent to 29 
per cent, the lowest since the 
war. The lowest so' far, that 
is.” 

He said the real value of the 
married man’s allowance was 
the highest since the war. He 
added that the Exchequer now 
took £8 billion less in income 
tax than under the last Labour 
government 

“But there is still more to 
da We are only half way to a 
basic rate of 25 per cent Tod 
many people come into tax at 
too low a levri.of income.” 

He added: “If the fax bur- 
den is to be further reduced 
the first need is to keep firm 
control over public expendi-

Mr Lawson devoted most of 
bis speech Yesterday to the 
proposed reform of personal

• give married women the 
same privacy and indepen- 
dence in fax matters as their 
husbands; 

• not .to discriminate against 
marriage, and; 

• to cut the taxes of low 
income families.

Police and fire officers in- 
vestigating the £7 million 
Maze at a News International 
newsprint plant in south-east 
London are now certain that it 
was started deliberately. 

Det Insp Brian Morris, sec- 
ond in command of the 
inquiry, confirmed yesterday 
that the fire was bring treated 
as arson. However, there had 
been no breakthrough so far. 

A source close to the inves- 
tigation said that several pet- 
rol can caps and pouring 
devices and the remnants of 
rags and matches had been 
found on the floor of the 
warehouse, where 9,240 
tonnes of newsprint were de- 
stroyed on Monday night. 

The source raid: “The evi- 
dence is fairly dear. These are 
not the kind of items one 
would expect to find lying 
around a paper store.” 

Trade unions embroiled in 
the bitter 18- week dispute 
with News International have 
angrily rejected suggestions 
that their members were in- 
volved. The company has 
offered a £50,000 reward for 
information leading to the 
arrest and conviction of the 
suspected arsonists. 

A confidential preliminary 
fire brigade report on the fire, 
which also destroyed the 100 
square-metre warehouse, a 
lorry and trailers, has been 
sent to detectives. A London 
Fire Brigade spokesman said: 
“We have a good idea how the 
fire started.” 

Police have taken state- 
ments from two women living 


By Gavin Bril 

near the Deptford storage 
depot who said they saw men 
throwing objects into the 
warehouse immediately be- 
fore it erupted in flames. 

The huge rolls of tightly 
packed newsprint were still 
smouldering two days after 
the fire was brought under 
control fire officers ex- 
pected they would be damping 
it down until next week. 

Mr Stuart Renton, company 
secretary of the News Interna- 
tional subsidiary which runs 
the depot, said its customers 
were receiving scheduled de- 
liveries from other ware- 
houses at the site. About 500 
tonnes went to the News 
International plant at 
Whipping, east London, yester- 
day. About 75 per cent of the 
destroyed newsprint was des- 
tined tor other national and 
provincial newspaper groups 
throughout Britain. 

The attack coincided with a 
ballot of more than 4,000 
members of the print union, 
Sogat ’82, on a settlement offer 
that indudes a £50 million 
redundancy package. The re- 
sult is due to be announced on 
Friday, the deadline set by 
News International for accep- 
tance of the offer. 

The national council of the 
NGA, the other main print 
union involved, was meeting 
yesterday to discuss its re- 
sponse. 


• The Prime Minister yester- 
day condemned violence on 
the Wapping picket lines and 
the “humbug" of political 
opponents who condoned the 


tactics which erased it (Philip 
Webster writes). 

Addressing the Conserva- 
tive women’s conference in 
London, Mrs Thatcher said: 
“We deplore the humbug of 
some of our political oppo- 
nents who, though they con- 
demn violence, condone the 
tactics, the demonstrations, 
the picket lines which inevita- 
bly lead to violence, as they 
have done in Wapping”. 

• A Bristol University stu- 
dent who attended the 
Wapping dispute to .write a 
report for his student newspa- 
per admitted in Tham es court 
yesterday that: he had hit a 
police horse and its rider with 
a slick. , . • . 

William Anderson, aged 20, 
ofSt John's Lane, Bednupstec, 
Bristol, who also admitted 
using threatening behaviour, 
was fined a total of £40 and 
bound over in the sum of £50 
for a year. 

Michael Wood, aged 21, an 
accounts clerk, of Hobart 
Gardens, Thornton Heath, 
south London, denied a 
charge of kicking a police 
horse, also on May 11, and 
was bailed until June 1 1. 

• A verdict of accidental 
death was recorded at St 
Pancras coroner’s court yes- 
terday on Sarah Johnston, 
aged three, daughter of a 
dismissed News International 
print worker, who was attend-

ters; on March 14 when she 
fell 13ft to her death through

Postmen start to 
clear 10m items 


By Robin Young 

All 6,000 postal workers on given the option of up tp 1 Vi 


strike or suspended during the 
postal dispute over new work- 
ing practices returned to work 
yesterday and started to sort 
and deliver the 10 million 
items of delayed mall. 

It is expected to take at least 
10 days to dear the backlog in 
the worst affected areas 
around Leeds. Post boxes 
sealed during the dispute were 
being reopened yesterday. 
Normal deliveries were ex- 
pected to resume throughout 
the Leeds region this morning. 

The core of the peace settle- 
mem, achieved after 19 hours 
of negotiations at the Post 
Office headquarters in Lon- 
don, concerned the Union of 
Communication Workers’ de- 
mand for an extra 30 miming 
day in tea breaks in return 
for an agreement on a new 
productivity scheme intended 
to save the Post Office 
£60 million a year. 

More than half the efficien- 
cy savings were to go to postal 
workers in the form of a cash 
bonus, which at Leeds, where 
the scheme was introduced on 
a pilot basis, would amount to 
about £20 a week. 

Under the new agreement 
postal workers joining the 
productivity scheme will be 


ours a week extra rest peri- 
ods, but at no extra cost to the 
Post Office because the cost of 
the additional free time will be 
deducted from the cash bonus. 

If workers decide to fake the 
full 1% hoars extra rest period, 
their cash bonus would be 
reduced to £13 a week, the 
saving estimated to have been 
achieved by the substition of

The Post Office had hoped 
to introduce the new working 
practices in a further 11 
sorting centres within the next 
few weeks, but accepts that 
local negotiations about bo- 
nuses will be necessary. 

Each union branch will now

Mr Bill Cockbum, the Post

with the deal and expected 
that many workers would vote 
to take the bonus in cash.

terday derided that informa-

helped the Ministry of De- 
fence save more than 
£700,000. 

- A re p ort by the Public 
Accounts Committee of the 
House of Commons also notes 
that the Treasury and the 
Ministry of Defence have said 
that they will give consider- 
ation to people who help to 
identify excess profits and 
may pay them compensation. 

This is likely to lead to MPs 
pressing for Government 
compensation to two. former 
employees of Aish and Com- 
pany, of Poole, Dorset. 

The Ministry had recovered 
about £421,000 of excess prof- 
its made by Aish.

He criticized the nuclear 
policies of the opposition par- 
ties, Naming that titty were 
dictated partly by electoral 
opportunism and : partly by 
constituency pressures. 

In a debate in: which all 


speakers praised the nuclear 
industry, a motion was passed 
unanhaously calling on the 
Government to counter “the 
vast quantity of mis-infor- 
matioa" about die industry pot 
out by the media. 

Mr Walker said that when 
tiie report on plans to bofld a 
second nuclear power, station 
at SizeweU, Suffolk, w ere pub- 
lished,, the Government would 
have to convince rite public 
that derisions were taken with 
great responsibility and a deep 
desire to see there .was total 
safety. 

■ Earlier, Mr Nicholas Rid- 
ley, Secretary of State for the 
Environment, raid that he had, 
“no intention of going bade on 
my predecessors’ amunitinent 
to foe protection of Green Belt 
from large-scale 

development”. 


Mr Norman Fowler, Secre- 
tary of State for Social Ser- 
vices, is to back down under 
pressure to pay the new family 
credit direct to mothers rather 
than througi the pay packet. 

He is to announce later this 
simmer exactly how family 
credit, which will give extra 
help to 20(1000 pear families, 
will be paid. The change, 
disclosed yesterday at the 
Conservative women’s confer- 
ence , was warmly welcomed 
' by representatives. - - 
.Mr Fowler said.-“We are 
looking again carefully at the 
precise mechanism of pay- 
menL But about the objective 
there is no debate: Family 
credit will give direct help to 
an extra 200,000 working 
families in this country.” 

He added that there was no 
question of the Government 
turning hs baric on child 
benefit being paid, as now, to 
the mother. 

During the conference de- 
bate on health, speakers wd- 
comed Mr Fowler’s refrain of 
the social security system, but 
there was some concern about 
plans to give less help on

general secretary, is too old to 
stand for re-election. 


The union’s biennial con- 
ference in Liverpool derided 
by 41 votes to 23, against the 
advice of its national execu- 
tive. to keep its leaders' voting 
rights. A vote the other way

need to stand for re-election. 


Under the rules no one over 
60 can stand for election. 

• When. Mr Slater was elected 
as the union's general secre- 
tary in 1962, it was “a job for 
life”, and he would have 
stayed in office until foe 
retirement age of 65. 

The union's executive is to 
meet in Liverpool on Saturday 
to arrange a ballot for a general 
secretary and deputy general 
secretary. 

A union official said later 
that it might decide to call a

ence to amend the age rule. If 
this happened Mr Slater could

tator in August 1982, . made 
her out to be “a coarse and ill- 
. m a nn ered woman of loose 
sexual morals”. . . ^ 

Mr Richard Hartley, QC, 
her counsel, told Mr Justice 
Otion arid a jury, of six men 
and six Women yesterday that 
the article was a “cruel and 
malicious attack”. 

It was a “spiteful” attack on 
a woman who had known 
“great happiness and -also 
experienced great sadness” in 
berlife.

cle was true. 

As Mr Hartley described to 
the- court how Mrs Marcks 


Riviere, who lives at Saint. 
Moritz, and has homes in 
Argentina and - Greece, had 
met and married her husbands . 
she burst into tears, and- was 
comforted by her fifth .hus- 
band, Jean Pierre, whom she 
married in 1973. 



across from- the island 'of 
Spetsai.and it was while Irving 
there that the alleged libels 
were written. 

There was a malicious arti- 
cle by Mr Theodoracopulos in 
September 1979. after* party 
she had given for 200 guests, 
“maybe because he ted not 
been invited”. 

• Then in September 1982 she 
received a “nasty threatening 
letter” from Mr 
Theodoracopulos, containing 
a copy of the article com- 
plained o£ TfceJetter referred 
to her husband as a 
“catamite”, which according 
to the dictionary definition, 
meant a boy kept -for mmatn- 
ral purposes, fin* purposes of 
sexual 7 perversion or -homo- 
sexual purpose s . - 
. “One wonders if if was the 
product of a rick mind orjnst 
every evil mind,” Mr Hartley 
sahL'-*- 

“Yon-may fed it is one of 



Mr Hteodoracopales and Mrs Manse-Riviere 


the most vitriolic and loath- 
some articles you have ever 
read,” he told the jury. 

The writer referred to him- 
sdfas Odysseus being taken in 
by a “genafiic Circe", a witch 

in Greek myibology. It re- 
-ferredto her as aft-ex-barkcep- 
er. which foe-never was, and 
one husband, Ernest 
Kanzler, obliged her by dying 
and leavfogher his consider- 
able fortune ., 

It referred to Mis Marde- 
Riviere as the “merry widow” 
with a pun on her name of 
** M asseusc-M ere i e re” . It 
dubbed therparty foe gave as 
“the Pansy Ball” for “rich, 
white, homosexual trash”, and 
said her friends had “always 
been the type for whom no 
humiliation is too shammg 
no insult too wounding to 
endure in . order to be with 
what they often mistakenly 
consider, to be their 
superiors.” : 

It said that her houses were 
always fiDed.tri the brim with 
climbers and parasites. Mr 
Theodoracopulos had said 
that he hadTbeen invited to 
lunch at her 'house in Greece, 
but when he arrived in his 
yacht “her painted fece sagged 
like a collapsed cake” and he 
was told toga . 

He claimed it was a “cun- 
ning stunt” to insult him 

Mr’ Hartley said that there 
was no justification for any of 
the allegations, which were 
plainly defamatory, and Mrs. 
Marcie-Riviere was contesting 
Mr Theodoracopulos's 
counter claim for libel dam- 
ages over an interview she 
gave to Women's Wear Daily 
in October 1982, in which she 
claimed his article was all lies. 

She denies saying that ev- 
erything be writes is lies, and 
denies the interview was 
defamatory. 

The hearing, which is ex- 
pected to last two weeks, 
continues. 



MP angry 
at holiday 
ordeal 

By Richard Evans 
Political Correspondent 


“ A Conservative 
day " demanded a 
oil tour operators alKy. return- 
ing to Bri tain front a “night- 

Jttare holiday littered .with 
broken - . pledges ..;; and 
.promises”. " T 
. Mr -Jerry Hayes, '-MP for 
Harlow, went to Tenerife with 
his wife, Alison, who is five 
months pregnant, and France- 
sca, their daughter aged 20 
mouths, after being attracted 
by a family holiday offer from 
a London travel company.. 

“Nothing that .was prom- 
ised in the brochure occurred. 
It was a nightmare and I have 
sent the firm a very strong 
letter.” he. said. . 

“The whole basis on which 
the holiday was sold was that 
there would be a laddies 
representative to look after the 
children for two hours in the 
morning and a special baby 
patrol in the evening. 

Mr Hayes said he and his 
wife were “dumped” in their 
rerort at S aim., given * map 
and told to find their own way 
to their apartment When they 
found it there was a cot 
outride which would not go 
into the room because it was 
too Targe. The mattress was 
covered in old excrement he 
.said.. 

' A ' spokesman for FaToon 
Holidays, of ..Nottfog HiD 
Gate, west London, confirmed 
lari night that it would ' be 
.carrying out an urgent investi- 
gation into Mr Hayes's com-, 
plaints and would offer 
compensation if his criticisms 
were correct. . ... .■

A jury was urged yesterday 
not to .find an alleged IRA 
bomb .plotter, PeterSherry, 
^guilty- by -association” Mr 
Stephen SpUey,..for Sherry, 
aged 30, said ai foe Central 
Criminal Court fruit such' a 
conviction would be a “terri- 


tafce”. 

Mr Sherry; is -accused with

allegation that, he caused ihe

■cany out a bombing campaign

locations lari summer. 

the jury has been fold the 
■five were caught “redhanded” 
when .detectives raided a fiat 
in Glasgow last June. 

‘ Mr Sofley. making his dos- 
ing speech on the twentieth 
day of the trial said that if the 
police raid at Langride Road, 
Glasgow, bad occurred one 
boor and 40. minutes earlier, 
they would not have known of 
Sherry's existence. There was 


no evidence to link him with 
an arms and bomb cache 
found at James Gray Street 
nearby. - 

-. is toitte vague alle- 
gation that because be hap- 
pened to be there by- a 
complete fluke when the po- 
lice came, that in seme way he 
must have heen guilty of -this 
grave crime.” " ; 

He said that MrRoy Amlot, 
. for theprosecution. had spent 
only eight minutes of his 
doring speech dealing with 
Mr Sherry. “In the context of 
the gravity of the crime we say 
it is an outrage that Sherry’s 
case has been so glossed over 
by the prosecution.” 

Mr Solley also accused the 
prosecution -of “moving the 
goalposts” during the. trial and 
trying to widen the allegations 
against him after the introduc- 
tion of an allegedly “sinister” 
note written on cigarette pa- 
pers and found in his 
possession. 

The trial continues today.

6 Dr Death’ 
changes 
his plea 
to guilty 

A man charged with drug- 
ging and deceiving a number 
of elderly women yesterday 
changed his plea to guilty after 
several of his victims testified 
against him in the Central 
Criminal Court 

Sidney Noble, known as Dr 
Death, made the dramatic 
confession on the third day of 
hisiriaL 

Noble, aged 57, bespecta- 
cled and sleek-haired, showed 
no emotion as the judge 
warned him he was consider- 
ing passing a sentence of life 
imprisonment “for these 
grave offences". 

Judge PigoUhe Common 
Serjeant of London, remanded 
him in custody for medical 
reports. 

He bad been told that Noble 
conned his way throughout 
southern England last summer 
while on the run from a 10- 
year prison sentence for simi- 
lar offences against old people. 

Mr David Cocks, QC, for 
the prosecution, told the court 
that Noble had a “unique 
imagination”, posing as a 
doctor and adopting other 
bizarre : guises 
Once in their home be 
mixed 'them a sedative cock- 
tail, which left them uncon- 
scious for hours, and stole 
their property. 

Noble at first denied admin- 
istering stupefying drugs to 
five women and one man, 
theft, forgery and attempting 
to obtain property by 
deception. 

The offences took place in 
Weston-super-Mare, East- 
bourne, Southend, London 
and Woking 

Discharging the jury, the 
judge said: “This has come as 
something of a surprise to you. 
You may think there can be no 
more convincing evidence of 
guilt that in such formal 
surroundings as a court a 
person should change his 
plea."

Government had no inten- 
sion, of uzrmog its back on toe 
Miieral management concept in 
the NHS, which was in the 
interests of the health service. 
Mr Norman Fowler. Secretary 
of State for Social Services, said 
when making a statement on the 
resignation of Mr Victor Paige 
from, the chairmanship of the 
NHS Management Board. 

. Mr Frank Dobson, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman on health, 
said his departure left in tanm 
the policy of bringing private 
bosses into the NHS. and called 
for the appointment of someone 
from the thousands who had 
made the NHS their life's work 
and not another rank outsider 
ailh no staying power. 

Mr Fowler said he had ap- 
pointed Mr Len Peach, the 
board's director of personnel on 
secondment from IBM. as act-

NUCLEAR ENERGY 

Mr Malcolm Rifkmd, Secretary

HOUSE OF LORDS 

The legal aid system was in 
danger of becoming a second 
class service which was not fair 
to the citizen and the legal 
profession. Lord Benson (1ml) 
said in' the House of Lords. 

He was opening a debate on 
concern about toe provision for 
criminal legal aid and the need 
to consider ways of improving 
the machinery for negotiating 
levels of remuneration tn future. 
Lord Benson, who was chair- 
man of the royal commission on 
legal services in 1979, said 
remuneration under toe legal 
aid scheme was inadequate. 

He understood from The 
Times that toe Lord Chancellor 
was proposing certain reforms. 
These would be belpful but it 
required a much more dynamic 


attitude by everyone concerned 
in toe legal process if that 
process was to be brought up-to- 
date. 

The present system of nego- 
tiation had three defects. First, h 
was delegated to officials at too 
low a level; second, they did not 
have the power of decision and 
were puppets dancing to strings 
held by toe Treasury behind toe 
curtain; and third, they did not 
have the basic up-to-date ev- 
idence in front of them on which 
fair judgments could be made. 

These factors were a certain 
recipe for failure and so it had 
proved in practice. A review 
board would be eminentiy suit- 
able for the legal profession. 
Lord Rawfinson of Ewell (C) 
said he would support a review 
board with strong . lay 
representation. 

Lord Halls ham of St Maryle- 
bone, the Lord Chancellor, said 


the pro; 

body w 


was attractive. He was not 


" That line has been cr iti cized

he could not do it this lime 
round. He was stock vrith-direct

If be could find a mechanism, - 
whether by advisory. committee 
or otherwise, that would help to 
establish commom- ground as 
the* basis for any decision the 
statute required him to take, to 
sweeten toe atmosphere, be , 
would greatly welcome it 

1 will certainly think (he said) 
along those lines. 

He did not believe toey were • 
in the presence. of impending 
doom to anything like the extent 
which some would indicate. 

A timetable for negotiation 
bad been accepted and he would 
come to a final decision in the 
discharge of his statutory duties 
on July 16. 

The debate was concluded. 


When there fe a fimdamefl- 
tal division as to whether there 
should be a national tietesrem . 
after foe lifetime of Polaris, 
bow ran any acooanniodbtfioB 
be found except by agreeing 
not to posh the issue antO the 
Affiance is in govenunent and 
forced to choose? 

Those are not trivial objec- 
tions. If the absolnte priority is 
to preserve -the Affiance in 


s cntics are right. Bat a 
political party wiD not com- 
mand public confidence if it 
always pots its own internal 


win t&es sees ttrnegpQJie whu 
one or other of the main 
parties- What wffi be deter* 
mined before die election are 
the Alliance sticking points in 
. such a negotiation. ... 

Pledges must be 
made to stick 

AH the pressures in snch 
. discussions wfli be to weaken 
not to strengthen commit- 
ments already made. Only the 
defence pledges that the Affi- 
ance made in die election 
would have any chance of 
becoming a condition for a 
deal after the election. 

' The Affiance seems to. be 
presented with a choice be- 
tween two posations-Thejoiat 
commission is expected to 
recommend that it should 
reject Trident and decide ban' 
whether any other successor to 
P olaris would be acceptable. 
Dr Owen and bis Supporters 
believe .that the Affiance 
should commit itself to the 
principle of an independent 
deterrent and decide later 
which successor to Pblaris 
would be best ... 

The wieakBess in his posi- 
tion is that. be now; rules out 
Trident more firmly than is 
consistent with his basic prin- 
ciple. That looks fikeatactical 
concession to . his critics: he

One third of the calls to the

target time of 30 seconds, with 
two callers hhving to hold on 
for more than five minutes 
before their call was answered. 

Two fifths of commuters 
complained of lack of seats 
and cramped standing room 
on their morning trains. There 
were also grumbles about the 
state of commuter stations, 
and the lack of cleanliness on 
the trains. 

One third of more than 300 
Inter-City travellers ques- 
tioned thought that food and 
drink was not as widely avail- 
able on trains as necessary. 
Only one in eight thought that 
when it was available it was of 
very good quality, while iwo- 
thirds thought it expensive. 

British Rail said that it was

Inter-City service “quite good j

Britannia Theme Park near 
Shipley, Derbyshire, has been 
bought by Derbyshire County 
Council in a £2.5 million 
_ agreement, and a commercial 
partner is to be sought to run

The park was developed on

which went into receivership 
lastyear.

aged 45, the son of Lord 
Sidmoulh, was found dead in 


to move out of his Lake 
District home and put it up for 
sale under the terms of an 
agricultural workers' planning 
condition made neariy 40 
years ago. 

Mr Thomas Hartney, aged 
50, has owned the three- 
bedroom bungalow at Rosgill, 
near Shap, since 1981. It was 
built in 1949 for a retired 
farmer with a condition that it 
should be occupied only by a 
member of the fanning 
population. 

But when Mr Hartney 
bought it at auction for neariy 
£30,000 be was told the pfen- 
- ning condition was nothing to 
wony about because it was so 
'loosely-worded.' 

However when be applied

tion was discovered and yes- 
terday the board's 
development control commit- 
tee refused a request to have 
the condition removed and 
decided to take enforcement 
action. 

Mr Hartney ’s wife, Susan, 
said: “When we bought the 
house our conveyancers men- 
tioned the agricultural condi- 
tion and it was checked with a 
solicitor who told us it did not 
matter” 


Mr Hartney said yesterday: 

“I am very angry and will fight

way f can. They will have to 
cany me out of the house” 

He said they would appeal 
against the decision.

Mr Degenhard said that 
carpet taken from tbe alleged 
scene of dog fights at 
Aldersbrook Primary School, 
Wanstead, east London, had 
jines of masking tape to 
indicate scratch marks. 

He said the length of a dog 
fight varied. “If a dog is not 
fully fit. then another, aggres- 
sive, fit dog makes short work 
of it very quickly.” 

He told the court that be 
had found a Staffordshire bull 
terrier, an English bull terrier 
and an American pit bull 
terrier in the garden of the 
school caretaker's premises. 
He had also found harnesses, 
weighing scales and a tread- 
mill used for exercising dogs. 

The caretaker, Alexander 
Funk. aged 29, of 
Leytonslone, east London, 
and four other men, have been 
charged with illegal 
dogfighting. 

Mrs Shirley Crouch, the 
school headmistress, told the 
court that she had found “tiny 
splashes of what could have 
been blood” on one wall of the 
school swimming pool. 

The case continues today.

Amal overcomes Sunni

'T 'the west of the city.

From Robert Fisk, Beirut 

Indeed, Mr Nabih Beni, the 
Amal leader, has expressed 

interest in talking to Mr Arafat 
about a ceasefire, a desire 
which has met with no ap- 
proval from AmaTs allies in 
Syria. 

In west Beirut yesterday, 
reports of looting in Sunni 
areas by Amal gunmen only 
added to mutual hostility 
between the two Muslim com- 
munities. Mr Berri again pro- 
claimed that any of his men 
found stealing would be sum- 
marily executed, a threat 
which has produced precious 
few results in the past. 

The whereabouts of the 
leadership of the Sixth of 
February Movement was un- 
clear yesterday. When Amal 
gunmen stormed into the 
party’s headquarters near Cor- 
niche Mazraa, they found no 
trace of Mr Chaker Berjawi, 
the leader of the militia. Nor 
did they discover any proof 
that the Sunnis had been 
acting in concert with the 
Palestinians in the camps. 

Mr Arafat’s own claims in 


Tunis that Amal have been 
massacring Palestinian civil- 
ians lacked some credibility in 
west Beirut, where reports of a 
children’s boms being Wasted 
to the ground by Amal, killing 
all those inside, proved to be 
untrue. Yet no one doubts 
that, as usual, there have been 
individual murders during the 
fighting. Most of the Palestin- 
ian civilians in any case 
long ago fled south or taken 
refuge m Druze or Sunni areas 
of west Beirut. 


The Muslim sector of the 
city returned to something 
approaching normal yester- 
day, with shops open and a 
few police Land-Rovers gin- 
gerly patrolling the streets. 


Amal seems to regard its 
latest victory as complete, 
disregarding the complaint of 
the Prime Minister, Mr Ra- 
shid Karami — who, under the 
Lebanese constitution, is him- 
self a Sunni — about the cost in 
civilian lives. At least 45 
people died in Tuesday’s 
street fighting. 


Kidnap plea by dying man 


From Our Own 
Correspondent 
Beirut 


■i;' 
n - 


Down the crackling tele- 
phone line from Batavia in 
New York state, Mr Richard 
Anderson’s voice sounded 
tired and weak, a world away 
from west Beirut yet intimate- 
ly bound up in events here; a 
sick man praying be would see 
his kidnapped brother before 
be died of cancer. 

Terry Anderson, the Associ- 
ated Press bureau chid 1 in 
Lebanon, was kidnapped in 
Beirut 15 months ago, and in 
February this year his father, - 
Glenn — hoping to the last that 
he would see his son again 
before illness overcame bun — 
died of cancer. Then yesterday 
Mr Richard Anderson was 
told that he, too, had cancer 
and heart disease and bad not 
long to live. 

The Andersons seem to be a 
tough family and it showed in 
Mr Anderson's voice. “I don't 
want Terry to come home and 
find both his father and his 
brother dead,” he said down 
that muffled phone line. “I 
need to see Terry justoue more 
time before I go. I've made a

Beirut 15 months ago. 


vow that I won't die until I see 
him.” 

All that th? family has seen 
of Terry Anderson since his 
kidnap by die Muslim Islamic 
Jihad movement has been a 
Polaroid odour snapshot and 
a long, emotional letter from 
him, talkrag of the bond of 
friendship Between him and 
three other captive Americans 
in Lebanon, a letter that talks 
of seeing his father and broth- 
er Richard again. 

In return for their four 
American captives, Islamic 
Jihad is. demanding the re-, 
lease of 17 prisoners convicted 
in Kuwait for bombing the 


American and French embas- 
sies there in 1983. 

Typically, Mr Richard An- 
derson, who is only 46, has just 
made a video-tape appeal from 
his hospital bed for his 
brother’s release, a short cas- 
sette which he has asked to 
have broadcast on Lebanese 
tele virion. 

“Fve been diagnosed to have 
cancer, the same as my 
father," he said. “And my 
father made a vow that he 
would hang °° and not die 
until be saw Terry. Unfortu- 
nately, foe cancer got my 
father faster than be thooght it 
would. 

“But now Fm hanging on 
andlVe got to see Terry before 
I go. On the video I’ve made. 
I've asked the people holding 
him to said him home to me.” 

The hospital authorities ate 
sending Mr Anderson hack to 
his home at the weekend 
because — as he put it bleakly 
yesterday — “they can do 
nothing more for me." 

“It’s hard to believe that 
both dad and I came down with 
cancer,” he. said. “It seems to 
ran in the family. Now I want 
to see Terry so badly before I 
die.

California 
gives lead 
on lawsuits 


From Rhoderick Sharp 
San Francisco 
California voters have 
backed a referendum measure 
financed by insurance compa- 
nies which, the companies say, 
win put an end to “ridiculous 
lawsuits”. 

The measure had been com- 
pared, because of the contro- 
versy it inspired, to foe 1978 
Property Tax Reform BUI 
Proposition 1 3, and it is being 
suggested that it win have an 
equally influential impact 
Under existing state law, 
parties with only a minor 
responsibility for causing an 
accident — such as local 
councils — can still be stuck 
with almost the entire finan- 
cial burden because of the 
inability of others to pay. 

The new proposal — while 
ensuring full restitution of 
victims' out-of-pocket costs, 
such as medical bills — limits 
payment of “non-economic" 
damages to each party’s pro- 
portionate liability. 

Trial lawyers said h would 
stop victims getting a fair 
settlement, aim consumers' 
groups said it was up to 
insurance companies to put 
their own houses in older. 

Supporters say it will curtail 
“ridiculous" settlements, like

woman who claimed her 
due powers were sai

As critidsm mounts in both 
parties of President Reagan’s 
renunciation of ■ the Salt 2. 
arms treaty. Congress has 
begun to force the Adnrinistra-- 
tion to continue observing the 
treaty terms. Al the samelime 
Mr Reagan has warned Con- 
gress that any cuts in nod ear 
modernization or ior his Stra- 
tegic Defence Initiative (SDI) 
would endanger US security. . 

Legisla ti on has been pro- 
posed in both chambers to bar 
any spending, on strategic ! 
arms that violates the limits of 
the treaty. As the Bill was 
introduced in the House of 
Representatives, Mr . Jim 
Wnght of Texas, the House 
Democratic majority leader, 
said the world clearly did not 
need,’ and could not afford, £ 
new escalation of the nuclear 
arms race. 

The Senate Democratic mi- 
nority leader. Senator Robert 
Bjrrd of West Virginia, Said he. 
might . support legislation 
obliging compliance rtrtii the ' 


treaty as an amendment, to 
military spending Bills. -The 
Democratic Senators Edward 
Kennedy and Albeit Gore 
have already condemned Mr 
Reagan's move as ^ the wont 
mistake of his presidency.; , 

Among the ; Republicans 
there was also a call to stay 
wiihin the Salt missile limit 
Senator Aden . Specter, ' of 
Pennsylvannia, said there was 
“very strong sentiment” in the 
Senate cm this. 

RepuhOcad leaders told 
President ’ Reagan of their 
concerns at a while House 
meeting on - Tuesday. But 
some conservatives praised 
his move as a “master stroke" 
that would put pressure on the 
Russians not to violate the 
Salt agreement.

funds for strategic moderniza-

Jerusalem 

Advertising posters in Israel 
showing a pretty girl in a 
swimsuit are to be withdrawn 
after a campaign by the ultra- 
orthodox Jewish community. 

Israeli . poBce have been 
working overtime to protect 
tire posters, which threatened 
to open a deep, diride in the 
country between the rapidly 
growing ultra-orthodox com- 
munity and the rest of the 
population. 

Black-coated and long- 
haired Hassidim with spray 
cans or matches had been 
arrested drily, and police 
courts were sentencing men 
who spend most- of their 
writing hoars studying the 
Torah and who angrily dispute 
the right of the state of Israel 
to exist. 

The girl in the swimsuit, 
part of an advertising cam- 
paign, has adorned bus shel- 
ters for months. This immod- 
esty enraged tire ultra-orth- 
odox community, which set 
about burning down or defac- 
ing the bus shelters, causing 
more than £160,000 damage in 
Jerusalem alone. 

The advertising agency re- 
sponsible for putting up the 
posters said yesterday that h 
would- be withdrawing them 
because it did not want to 
cause offence. 

However, leaders of the 
ultra-orthodox community 
said they would be stepping up 
their campaign « gain«er ob- 
scene advertising. 

Students of tire Yeshiva — 
the religious schools — had 
been caught vandalizing the 
advertisements in relatively 
secular Tel Aviv and its sub- 
urbs, and non-religions teen- 
agers had been following the 
example of the Hassidim. 

One student, Mr Haim 
Gottlieb, was given a second 
five-month sentence this week 
and told the coart that be 
regarded Mmseif as waging an 
all-out war against the coun- 
try’s laws And morals, which 



The swimsuit advertising poster in Israel that angered the 


he said were no better than 
those imposed by the Roman 
emperor Titos. 

He refused to give evidence 
because “according to the 
Torah, I cannot give testimony 
in a’ court of idol-worsb!^ 
pers.” 

The anti-swimsuit campaign 
was apparently led by Rabbi 
Uri Blau, sou of the founder of 


the extreme Neturei Karta 
community, which is particu- 
larly strong in Jerusalem’s 
'religions stronghold of Mea 
Sbe’arim. He was arrested for 
a second time this week, 
together with nine young 
followers. 

All 10 were said by police to 
have been caught at midnight 
on Saturday - after the end of 


ultra-orthodox community, 
the Sabbath — solemnly 
spray-painting the picture. 

Since the arrest, the police 
have found It more difficult 
than ever to patrol Mea 
She’arim. Seven officers were 
injured in stone-throwing inci- 
dents on Monday night when 
they tried to stop the irate 
orthodox setting fire to dust- 
bins and sealing off roads. 


Gorbachov puts atom safety proposals to UN 


“doing everything to under- 
mine the possibility of a 
summit" . 

■- Ifsuch g summit was to take 
place, an appropriate political 
atmosphere and a mutual 
readiness for practical results 
was needed. 


From Zoriana Pysariwsky 
New York 

In a message to Senor Javier 
Perez de Cuellar, the UN 
Secretary-General, Mr Mikh- 
ail Gorbachov has broadened 
his call for the creation of an 
rateroaliona] regime to en- 
hance safeguards against nuc- 
lear accidents. 

Citing the need for prompt 
notification of accidents or. 
faults al atomic power plants' 
.when accompanied by release 


of radiation, the Soviet leader 
said that such a regime "would 
be aimed at bringing to an 
absolute minimum a possibili- 
ty of the peaceful atom caus- 
ing harm to people". 

In an address on Soviet 
television on May 14 after the 
disaster at Chernobyl, Mr 
Gorbachov first mentioned 
the need for an international 
system of nuclear safeguards. 

He is now suggesting that a 
system be codified in one or 
more international conven- 


tions, and that bodies such as 
the International Atomic En- 
ergy Agency (IAEA) be used to 
strengthen safety in the long 
run and set up an early 
notification system in the 
meantime: 

The IAEA could "sponsor 
international efforts to devel- 
op a new generation of eco^ 
nomic and reliable reactors 
with enhanced safety opera- 
tors compared to the existing 
reactors". 

Mr Gorbachov also empha- 


sized the need for the accord 
to include stringent measures 
against nuclear terrorism. He 
said in Europe there were 10 
cases of sabotage of nuclear 
facilities from 1966 to 1977. 

The Soviet Union has been 
criticized for foiling to provide 
adequate information on the 
Chernobyl accident, and 
Western diplomats said Mr 
Gorbachov's proposal was an 
attempt to improve Moscow's 
tarnished image.

Poll says 
image of 
Austria 
damaged 

From Richard Bassett 
Vienna 

Austria's image abroad had 
been substantially damaged 
by the furore surrounding Dr 
Kurt Waldheim's alleged links 
with Nazi atrocities m the 
Balkans, according to a Gallup 
poll published in Vienna 
yesterday. 

The poll investigated atti- 
tudes towards Austria m eight 
West European countries dur- 
ing March and ApriL At the 
beginning of March, just be- 
fore the Waldheim controver- 
sy broke, only 39 per cent of 
press comment in these coun- 
tries could be interpreted as 
hostile towards Austria. By 
the end of April the figure had 
in some cases risen to 77 per 
cenL 

Herr Fritz Kammersin, a 
Gallup poll spokesman, said 
this showed that Austria’s 
image abroad had radically 
altered. 

Most people questioned in 
March thought of the Austri- 
ans as "romantic, friendly and 
musical”. Six weeks later the 
poll found that these charita- 
ble epithets had been replaced 
by "untrustworthy, incompe- 
tent and unintelligent". 

Herr Kammersin saw a 
direct relationship between 
this change and the Waldheim 
controversy. He said that the 
new image of Austria would 
severely damage the country's 
business links. 

• BELGRADE: A Yugoslav 
magazine has claimed that Dr 
Waldheim spent much longer 
in Yugoslavia than he admit- 
ted, and that throughout the 
last seven months of the war 
he was in the headquarters of 
the Army Group E which, on 
retreat through Yugoslavia, 
committed brutal reprisals in 
Macedonia. Bosnia and Serbia 
(Dessa Trevisan writes). 

Writing in the magazine 
Interview, a Yugoslav journal- 
ist involved in research on Dr 
Waldheim's war experiences 
in Yugoslavia listed several 
documents, including one 
bearing Dr Waldheim’s co- 
signauire and said to prove 
that Dr Waldheim, if not 
directly involved in reprisals, 
was fully aware of them. 
•ATHENS: The Justice Min- 
ister. Mr Apostolos Kak la- 
man is, has said that Dr 
Waldheim's name was not 
included in an official Greek 
register of 5,000 war crimi- 
nals. hut admitted that the 
records were incomplete (A? 
reports).

generated by international ter- 
rorism is, ironically, the inter- 
national exhibition and 
conference on law enforce- 
ment, which was doe to open in 
Genoa next month. 

The massive British-orga- 
nized exhibition has lad to be 
postponed because Italian au- 
thorities have refused to issue 
the necessary permits to alkm 
many of the exhibits to be 
brought into the country. As a 
result, Mr Derek Baker, of the 
Eton-based company organiz- 
the exhibition, has been 
forced to agree with the Genoa 
Fair managem ent to issue a 
statement aimoencmg post- 
ponement of the event for 
reasons beyond their control. 

Mr Baker says the faUta-e of 
the conference and law en- 
forcement show — which be 
described as befog of un- 
precedented dimensions — to 
open as planned “sets bade 
anti-terrorism by 10 years’*. 
He was expecting to wel- 
sme some 6,000 delegates 
from outride Italy, as well as 
the Italian participants and 
leading figures in the police 
forces of the world. There were 
also dne to be 2JMX) exhibitors, 

mflwHing some i m p y f»nt 

British companies such as 
British Aerospace, Marconi 
and the Royal Ordnance 
Factories. 

“The largest industry in the 
world today is crime,” Mr 
Baker said, “and the second 
hugest is tire industry set up to 
combat it” 

He said planning for die 
exhibition bad been hi band 
for 18 months, long before the 
recent wave of terrorism and 


in tire 

Mediterranean. 

The Kalian derision not to 
issue permits was taken on tire 
basis of legislation dealing 
with die import of firearms 
and other weapons. 

Mr Baker said that only 
about 2 per emit of the exhibits 
were actual firearms, but the 
Italian legislation was broad 
and would have meant that 
many other exhibits would 
have come under the ban. 

It is probable, however, that 
the delegates expected to at- 
tend bad wumI the IImImiw 
more anxiety than the weap- 
ons. WeO-known American 
and Israeli police and anti- 
terrorist expats would have 
been regarded as inviting tar- 
gets for terrorists. The idea of 
providing all 4JM0 delegates 
with adequate protection 
would have been seen as a 
huge security problem. Also 
Italy fears at this time, if not 
expects, more serious acts of 
terrorism. 

Signor Oscar Scalfiun, the 
Minfoer of the Interior, voiced 
this tear in an interview on 
Tuesday, and even though his 
colleagues im»i«»him that his 
call for a general alert was not 
directly connected with the 
refusal to provide permits fere 
the Genoa show, it certainly 
was indicative of the atmo- 
sphere. 

Later this month the trial 
starts at Genoa of the hijack- 
ers of the Italian cruise ship, 
the Achfife Lauro. It is expect- 
ed to last at least a month aiid 
therefore would have run con- 
currently with the law enforce- 
ment conference.

Spy trial gives glimpse 
of top-secret agency 

Rom Michael Bmyon, Washington 
The Baltimore trial of Ron- to believe he could 


aid Pelton, the forma techni- 
cian at the top-secret National 
Security Agency (NSA) ac- 
cused of selling priceless intel- 
ligence information to the 
Russians, is one of the most 
bizarre in the crop of recent 
spy trials. 

Not only has most of the 
evidence been withheld from 
the jury on security grounds, 
but the Reagan Administra- 
tion, in an unusual move, has 
tried to limit what the press 
can say about the accusations 
against the 44-year-old defen- 
dant In this, it resembles 
more a British spy trial -than 
something from an American 
court 

Nevertheless, unusual de- 
tails have been given about 
the NSA, the US equivalent of, 
the GCHQ at Cheltenham, 
with its budget of hundreds of 
millions of dollars and its 
worldwide monitoring of So- 
viet radio messages, telephone 
calls and secret communi- 
cations. 

The defence, which is bas- 
ing its case simply on the 
allegedly unfair interrogation 
techniques of the Federal Bu- 
reau of Investigation, has also 
given a glimpse of the debrief- 
ing of traitors. 

Mr Pelton, who worked for 
14 years for the NSA before 
leaving in 1979. is accused of 
selling details of US intelli- 
gence to the Russians between 
19S0 and 1985 for $35,000 
(£23,000). The sole witness in 
his own defence, he admitted 
telling the Russians about 
some NSA projects, but insist- 
ed the FBI had tricked him 
into confessing by leading him 


escape 

prosecution if he became a 
double agent. 

He had ajobthal gave him 
access to enciphered commu- 
nications, as well as . knowl- 
edge of how the : agency 
handled the 60 Soviet sferals 
that were top priority. 

Ironically, one of his con- 
tacts at tiie Soviet Embassy 
here was Mr Vitaly Yur- 
chenko, the double 
whose, voice wras beard on the 
tapes of Mr Pehon’s moni- 
tored calls to the 
which were played to the 
court. It. was Mr Yurchenko 
whatipped off the Americans, 
before he himself defected to 
Moscow. 

Mr Petton’s . disclosures 

were said by an NSA official to 

have inflicted “exceptionally 
grave damage” on American 
security by alerting the Rus- 
sians to adopt counter- 
measures. 

One official described the 
type of analysis 'done at the 
NSA. Some of the listening 
devices are dearly clandes- 
tinely set up within Soviet 

cowa<Ssedihe^ S (^uttmg 
one in a Russian forest, dis- 
guised as a tree stump. Mr 
Pelton is accused of telling the 
Russians where one such de- 
vice was planted — although 
he' was apparently several 
hunched miles out: 

Much of the trial is taken up 
with whispered conversations 
at the bench. The jury, which 
has been given documents so 
fileted and blacked out as to be 
virtually meaningless, is ex- 
pected to retire to deckle foe 
case today.

A fresh outbreak of separat-

and seriously injured 27 oth-

Bonn puts Berlin row on back-burner 


From Frank Johnson 
Bonn 

The dispute over what travel 
documents should be shown to 

East German border guards by 
accredited diplomats wanting 
to cross into West Berlin, has 
been removed from the public 
eye without being resolved. 

Since the weekend the sub- 
ject has vanished from West 
German television news bolle- 
tius sad the front pages of tiie 
newspapers — and, in most 
cases, the inside pages- 
The probable explanation is 
that, although it was agreed 
that the changes introduced by 
the East Germans could seri- 

affect tiie status of 

Berfin, dime effects lie in the 
distant fotnre. There is not tire 
will in West Germany to make 
much of a foss about it now. 

This relaxed attitude by the 
West Gomans has privately 
irritated the Americans, who 
see themselves as having been 
in danger of sounding more 
German- than the Germans cm 
the subject of Germany’s 



The dispute began two 
weeks ago when the East 
German Foreign Ministry 
wrote to afi embassies in East 
Berlin advising them that 
diplomats crossing into West 
Berlin would have to show 

their passports as wdl as their 
identity cards. 

The British, Americans and 
French refused, on the ground 
that to do so would indicate 
that they accepted tire East 
German and Soviet claim that 
East Berlin was East Ger- 
many's capital, whereas they 
contend it is still only foe 
Soviet occupation sector anda 
the various postwar agree- 
ments, jast as West Berfin is 
foe British, American and 
French occupation sectors. 

For diplomats to show pass- 
ports would suggest the Wall 
was a national border and not 
the dfvidhig line between occu- 
pation sectors. 

Any alteration of the city’s 
status wifi have to await the 
long-delayed Second World 
War peace treaty. To do 
otherwise would strengthen 
foe comiaaai st dam on West 


Berlhi - East Germany de- 
scribes “Berlin” as its capital, 
not jnst East Berlin. 

So the three Weston occu- 
pying powers and foe West 
Germans, who also have a 

mission in East Berlin, refused 

to show their passports and 
woe tamed away at various 
crossings, such as Checkpoint 
Charlie, and Instead took a 
long detour to enter West 
Balm from foe territory of 
East Gomany: a state they 
recognize without recognizing 
what it chums to be its capitaL 

Western countries who are 
not oc cu p yi n g powers but are 
members of Nate, such as 
Italy, Denmark, Spain and 
iblgiinn ) did thesame. 

But by the end oflast week, 
the East German Foreign 
Ministry exempted the three 
occupiers from showing their 
passports. 

Inquiries at East Berfin 
embassies this week showed 
that West Gamany, Italy, 
Spain, and most other Nato 
countries were still refusing to 
show passports and were mak- 
ing the detoa. 


Greece's position was not 
dear. At first a spokesman 
said “of course” Greek diplo- 
mats woe showing their pass- 
ports, but a later inquiry 
produced the assurance that 
they were not. 

The Swedes said they were 
showing their passports and 
had complied with foe change 
“as a neutral country” So, too, 
had Finland. Bat the Norwe- 
gians and foe Danes, both of 
whom are in Nato, were still 
refusing to show passports. 

The issue will still have to 
be resolved as for as West 
Germany and foe other non- 
passport showers are con- 
cerned. 

In Brain, some West Ger- 
man Government officials 
were saying that East Germa- 
ny had in reality suffered a 
setback because ft had been 

forced to exempt the Weston 
allies and had therefore con- 
firmed BetHn's special status. 
The Americans remained 
sceptical and irritated, but 
refieved that foe West Ger- 
mans had not accepted tiie 
change — or not yet. 


FVom Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

The American Chamber of I Mdlgele 
Commerce in South Africa 1 
(Amcham) 1ms sent its 300 
member companies a list of 
suggestions for supporting 
their blade employees in acts 
of civil disobedience against 
apartheid laws. 

One proposal is that compa- 
nies should offer to pay the 

XS & 1 Pastora freed 

rial laws (which) dearly inter- 
fere with the lives of blacks”. 

Amcham members are also 
urged to meet foe legal costs of 
black employees who defy the 
law by travelling on whites- 
oniy trains and buses. It is also 
recommended that they en- 
courage “the slow movement 
of blacks” into whites-only 
residential areas. 

Another suggestion is that 
companies should give finan- 
cial aid to private schools in 
white areas which refuse a 
government subsidy. Schools 
accepting foe subsidy have to 
to a limit on the number 
of blacks they admit. 

Mr Frank Lubke, president 
of Amcham, said: “We have a 
social conscience and we are 
not doing this to ease pressure 
on American companies do- 
ing business in South Africa.” 

It would foe up to individual 
companies to dedde whether 
they wanted to act on foe 
suggestions. 

The proposals were drawn 
up at the request of Amcbam's 
social justice committee by a 
body called foe Get Ahead 
Foundation, which indudes 
among its directors Bishop 
Desmond Tutu and Dr 
Nthato Motlana, a top anti- 
apartheid activist- Amchara’s 
members employ about 
1 15,000 blacks.

Lucky leader with a mission 


THE TIMESBBBBBB 

PROFILE 


8urMti KsradiB 


DAVID LANGE 


I n 1967 a young New Zea- 
land lawyer was in west 
London looking for tea and 
biscuits when he entered 
Donald Soper’s mission. 
There he heard words which fed 
his deeply-held Methodist convic- 
tions, crystallized his own beliefs 
and resolved some of his doubt. 

For David Russell Lange, a 
hefty Billy Burner of a youth who 
had just received his degree from 
Auckland University and was 
looking for meaning in life, it was 
altogether a formative period . 

At the time Lange was 25 and 
working as a junior accounts clerk 
fbr a reinsurance company. He 
later switched to the Westminster 
Bank, as it was before the merger 
with National Provincial and the 
launching of National Westmin- 
ster. His evenings were mostly 
spent at the mission, and it was 
here that he met Naomi Crampton 
of Newark, Nottinghamshire. 
They married in 1968, and shortly 
afterwards returned to New Zea- 
land, where Lange took the first 
steps on the Labour Party road 
that was to lead to the prime 
ministership 16 years later. 

Until recently David Lange, 
who arrives in London today for 
talks with Mrs Thatcher, was 


did his ideals become convictions 
after the events which occurred 
when he took office? 

Close associates of the man who 
succeeded to the leadership of the 
New Zealand Labour Party after 
only seven years in parliament 
believe the events of the past 18 
months have hardened his re- 
solve. The French action in send- 
ing agents to New Zealand to 
sabotage the Greenpeace protest 
ship, Rainbow Warrior, in Auck- 
land harbour was a major factor. 
Describing the act as state-spon- 
sored terrorism, Lange said it 
showed the desperation of nuclear 
powers. 

Washington's response to New 
Zealand's ban on nuclear-powered 


ships — the suspension of all 
defence links - also strengthened

feelings. Ironically, the suspension 
also punished die New Zealand 
Defence Department, the one 
establishment in favour of contin- 
ued US Navy visits. 


always assumed to be a reluctant 
convert to his party's anti-nuclear 


Then came the Chernobyl 
disaster, followed by reports from 
declassified Pentagon documents 
concerning potentially catastroph- 
ic accidents involving nuclear 
weapons. Each new development, 
Lange's associates argue, builds a 
stronger case for an anti-nuclear 
policy. 


policies. As opposition leader he 
failed in a valiant attempt to 
delete from the party's anti- 
nuclear policy the provision ban- 
ning nuclear-powered ships from 
entering New Zealand ports. The 
ban on nuclear-armed vessels was 
sufficient, he argued. Similarly, he 
made efforts to dissuade party 
conferences from passing resolu- 
tions in favour of withdrawal from 
Anzus, the defence alliance be- 
tween Australia, New Zealand and 
the United States. 

But now, as Lange pursues his 
anti-nuclear policies with some 
enthusiasm — even to the extent of 
criticizing Nato nations for their 
reliance on nuclear weapons — 
western diplomats in Wellington 
are wondering again about the 
time that the youthful Lange spent 
at die West London Methodist 
mission. Did be become a Soper- 
inspired pacifist-socialist then, or 


B ut what of David 
Lange's private views? A 
man with a mission, he 
reportedly believes it 
was no accident that he 
rose so quickly to the top. This is 
not to say, though, that he pursues 
life and his policies with a 
messianic zeaL In feet, he gives the 
impression of hugely enjoying 
himself The portly schoolboy 
who once used his wit and his 
debating skill to keep out of 
trouble now has a larger audience.

Larger than life: New Zealand’s prime minister has been accused of being “a down and a buffoon* 


And while he remains a teetotal 


Methodist lay preacher. Lange is 
no prude. He will happily sip fruit 


no prude. He will happily sip fruit 
juice at functions while those' 
about him become tired and 
emotional. An exuberant humor- 
ist who can never resist a quip, he 
is criticized by his political oppo- 
nents for demeaning the office of 
prime minister. He has. been 


described as “a clown and a 
buffoon" by former prime minis- 
ter Sir Robert Muldoon. 

On a tour of Africa last year, 
Lange's one-linens about his wife 
- mostly concerning the penetrat- 
ing nature of her voice - raised the 
ire of feminists. When school 
teachers protesting about their pay 
intruded on him at a private 
function earlier this year, Lange 
told one of them to “piss off*. One 
irate mother said she was now 


having to correct her children fbr 
using prime-ministerial language. 

Then, after Foreign Office min- 
ister Lady Young had left his 
office after delivering further Brit- 
ish Government opposition to 
proposed anti-nuclear legislation, 
Lange observed to reporters: “She 
left her broomstick behind". 

But while his actions give the . 
impression of skittishness, and he 
is criticized fay some for lack of 
application and a short attention 


span, others profess to be in awe of 
his grasp of even the most 
complex issues. 

One colleague says he has the 
impression that Lange has coasted 
through life and has never, been 
fully extended. He rites the dra- 
matic role change during the 1984 
election when Lange was trans- 
formed from a bumbling politi- 
cian into a statesman, thoroughly 
beating Muldoon. 

Faced with a constitutional as' 


wdl as economic crisis when 
Muldoon initially declined to 
devalue the dollar for the incom- 
ing government, Lange defivered a 
television performance so devas- 
tating that key National Patty 
ministers met to consider reptac- 
ingSir Robert as leader. 

The prime minister has another 
attribute, one that has earned him 
the sobriquet “Lucky Lange**. 
Even what should have been a 
setback — the failure to win, by a 
single vote, the leadership of the 
Labour Party in 1981 — ercntnally 
turned to his advantage. In 1982 
he withdrew from the political 
arena for a stomach -stapling oper- 
ation. which reduced the size of 
his stomach by half 

As a result, he shed several 
stone, making a dramatic im- 
provement to his shape and 
image. He later said: “It was an 
important decision — otherwise 
Td be28 stone by now". His actual 
weight is known only to a select 
few. ... 

Politically, Lange eludes easy 
labelling. He combines support for ' 
right-wing economic policies with 
his campaign against nuclear 
weapons. He often prefers to speak 
in riddles and sweeping convolut- 
ed prose, rather than giving direct 
answers to questions. 


Wfthin his own party Lange has 
achieved ah informal trade-off 
delivering to some extent the 
foreign policy that die party 
activists desire by banning the 
visit of nuclear-armed and pow- 
ered ships.. In return the party has

Biarritz is a showpiece and a

ago by President Mitterrand, 
it provides for the wiring of all 
major French towns and cities 
with fibre-optic cable by the 
end of the century. 

France has already estab- 
lished a leading position in 
several fields of advanced 
telecommunications, includ-

FINDINGS 


An occasional series on research: 
PUBLIC OPINION 


ROYAL INFLUENCE: The Prince of Wales 
said recently Oat, unless there is a regenera- 
. don of hidnMry and enterprise, “we are going to 
aid up as a fourth-rate country" — and most 
people agree with him. According to a MORI 
poU conducted fa Febniaiy and reported hi the 
JEiistra/ai LwuhmNcws,59per cent ef British 
people believe that this is likely to happen and only 36 per cent 
disagree. Interestingly, those who knew that it was Prince 
Charles who said it were ammo likely to agree than those who did 
not Older people and women were mist likely to be m fh wn rf d 
by the feet that tt was the Prince. 

The Illustrated Loudon News also asked MORI to measure 
the public's rating of the quality id different aspects of tile in 
Britain today. They found that the highest rating wasgxvea to 
science and technology (which 76 per cot rated “good”J and to 
health care (70 per cent “good”). Bottom of the poll, with only 
30 per centrating it “good” and SO per cent * f poor”, was govern- 
ment and admimstration, while architecture and planning had 
only a 36 per cent “good” rating. 


S HORED WITH LORDS?: Five months after 
the iktrodaction of tdevisioa broadcasting of 
the debates in the House of Lords, the IBA 
commissioned the Harris orgsuuzation to 
measure its impact on the pnblk. The results of 
the study suggest an interesting dichotomy. 
There are now more people ready to see the 
power of the House of Lords increased than there were at the 
outset. Yet the public are less keen to see farther (devising of 
the Lords and are more interested in debates in the Commons or 
even in cases in the law amrts. 


Cost should foil 
to about £500 
for each house

phone services, data and 
images. 

In Biarritz, videophone 
owners are already able to see 
each other as they chat They 
can show one . another docu-

tures and catalogues, in colour 
or in black and white. They 
can walk mound the room

They can dial into, the

and watch it on. their home

government plans, Biarritz 
and the nearby towns of 
Anglet and Bayonne are to be 
transformed into a huge, per- 
manent exhibition of ad- 
vanced urban living, including 
the latest techniques in trie- 
communications, transporta- 
tion and energy conservation. 

- So far the French govern- 
ment has spent 'about £6.4 
million turning Biarritz into a 
showcase for French telecom- 
munications, picking up the , 
cost of installing the video- 
phones and charging home- 
owners only for calls. At 
present a- single videophone 
costs about £1,550 while the 
cost of bringing a house into 
the system is about £4,500. 

As the government’s cabling 
plan gathers speed, substantial 
economies of scale are expect- 
ed. Last year France's outgo- 
ing minister of poos and 
telecommunications, Louis 
Mexandreau, predicted that 
the cost of hooking up an : 

- individual house would fell to ; 
about £500 in a town of 
300.000 houses: 

Videophone users in Biar- 
ritz pay the same rental and 
user charges as for an ordinary 
^telephone, which means it is 
heavily subsidized. Watching 
a 90-minute film on video 
cassette costs, about 72 pence 
in videophone: charges plus a 
rental charge of about £2.50. 
French cinemas, in compari- 
son. charge between £1.90 and 
£3.80 for a seat 


GREEK TRAGEDY: Generally speaking, fife 
today is hell in Athens bat delightful in French ■ 
cities, according to a Eurodimsmvey of Greeks - 
and a Gallup survey of the French. While 82 : 
per cent of Grades said that life in Athens today 
is unpleasant and 84 per cent described it as a 
city of crisis, the majority of French people . 
living in Paris (79per cent), Marseilles (68 per cent) and Lyons - 
(87 per cent) said that they thought fife in their city today was . 
rather pleasant. The majority of the French described their ^ cit- 
ies as prosperity.

By Martin Cruz Smith 

Collins Harvi&f 10.95 

The building of the bomb is a 
captivating subject for the 
leading yarn-spumer, though 
most books on the Manhattan 
Prtyect purport to be non- 
fiction. Take the world’s lead- 
ing boffins, dump them on a 
mesa in the middle of New 

Mexico, and tell them to find a 

way of ending the war, and 
you have the stuff of a &t best- 
seller. Short balding Fermi 
(“Physicists called him the 
Pope"); the Hungarian Teller 
("bis eyebrows - rising like 
Ians") who sounds hike Denis 
Healey if he'd' read Physics; 
Niels Bohr; Klaus Fuchs with 
his "rimtess glasses" (you 
know he's no good once you 
learn about rimless glasses and 
his bland and pasty face); and 
above all the lean, beak-nosed* 
sunken-eyed “Oppy". I rather 
think - he’s a "brooding 
presence" though Mr Cruz 
Smith never quite says so. 

These are the men destined 
to change destiny itself! - 

Surrounding this polyglot 
think-tank are a whole lot of 
native Americans living in 
adobe pueblos dotted along - 
the Rio Grande. “You mean 
Indians" Fuchs said. "Those 
are the local people" Joe said. 
Their rituals are as old as time 
itselL and Joe is at one and the 
same time one of them , and 
one of us. He is Oppy's driver 
. and bodyguard, plays mean 
jazz, was a heavyweight box- 
ing champion, is amazing in 
bed, and represents what the 
blurb, naturally, calls "the 
collision of two cultures on the 
eve of a new world.” 

Mr Smith is well placed to 
write about this sort of colli- 
sion. being part Indian him- 
self but the end result is oddly 
flat Even now the juxtaposi- 
tion of Los Alamos and the 
Surrounding Indian country 
seems more complex and . 

bizarre than he managps to

TOE TENDER PASSION 
The Bourgeois Experience 
Victoria^o Freud; VoL 2 

By Peter Gay 
Qxfbni£j9J0 


T he conventional image of the 
Victmaan bourgeoisie is dis- 
tinctly unflattering : die 
of the species is commonly 
considered to have been a Bluebeard 
at home and a TanufFe out of doors, 
while the female languished in crino- 
line OT matte ngty thrng c fyf rh* 
Christian Missions of Bomoboola. 
No one even remotely connected with 
the middle-classes was supposed to 
know an^jfoiztt at all about sex; and 
marriage itseowas simply a covenant 
designed for the maintenance of the 
species. That is the theory, in 
abbreviated form; and, hire most 
theories, it is quite wrong. 

And now Peter Gay, a Professor of 
History from Yale University, has 
embarked on a massive enterprise to 
dispel such selfsafisfied prejudices; 
in a previous volume he explored 
Victorian sexuality in relentless de- 
tail, and in this book be analyses the 
nature of Victorian love. It came as a 
surprise in the last volume to 
discover that Queen Victoria, appar- 
ently the high priestess of repression, 

! boqght and drew male nudes; but the 
general thesis of The Tender Passion 
is even more subversive. It is, 
essentially, that the much Hwepif cri 
bourgeoisie of the last ce ntury en- 
joyed the same erotic aspirations, and 
were almost as "permissive", as then- 
more “liberated" successors. 

Yon might even be for g iven for 
thinking, from Professor Gay's ac- 
count, foal foe whole of foe Nine- 
teenth Century was obsessed with 
sexuality in all of its aspects — 
certainly he seems to have caught 
most of foe eminent Victorians, from 
Walter Bagehot to Havelock EDis, in 



however, and his reverence for Freud 
has gone safer that he quotes with en- 
thusiasm Diderot’s remark that. 
"There is a bit of testicle at the 
bottom of our most sublime senti- 
ments and most refined tenderness.” 
But fortunately be does not impose 
too heavy a weight of analytical 
theory on the already over-burdened 
Victorians : in any case I have never 
understood why, if work is consid- 
ered a sublimation of sex. sex should 
not sometimes be a sublimation of 
work. 

What foe book amounts to is a 
survey of love under pressure; foe 
eternal conflict between "freedom 
and control" is always being fought, 
but in foe Nineteenth Century the 
rules and even foe boundaries of that 
struggle were continually being rede- ; 
fined. There were striking changes in j 
medical science as well as in religious 
belief or social behaviour, for exam- j 
pie. and as rapid industrialization 
increasingly took its toll upon Eigh- 
teenth-Century ethical theories, so 
the relations between the sexes were 
gradually but permanently 
transformed.

flagrante delicto. And just because the 
Nineteenth-Century novelist did sot 
presume to open the bedroom door, h 
cannot be assumed that there was not 
an intense interest in what transpired 
behind it as Professor Gay puts it, in 
what is the most important sentence 
of the book, "It would be a gross 
misreading of the bourgeois experi- 
ence to think that the Nineteenth- 
Century bourgeoisie did not know, or 
did not practice, or did hot enjoy, 
what they did not discuss.” In other 
words, the Victorians were not so

Of course a cultural survey of love 
is a most difficult enterprise under 
any circumstances. That precious 
commodity begins in foe mysterious 
stirrings of indrvidnal impulse, but at 
once is forced to make its way 
through a maze of sexual taboos, 
social conventions, and linguistic 
codes; as a result, love is at once 
unanalysable and thoroughly com- 
prehensible, a force outside history 
and an object embedded wi thin foe 
historical process. Professor Gay has 
dealt with this ambiguity in foe best 
way possible, and that is by grappling 
with it from both ends at once. He is a 


meticulous social historian at the 
same time as he manages to be a 
responsive and often very funny 
chronicler of individual human be- 
haviour. He has gone through old 
diaries , family papers, and private 
correspondence as well as the more 
solemn items between hard covers 
(his bibliography stretches to some 46 
pages) and if than are times when his 
narrative sounds like Freud’s Ccvtfi- 
sation and Its Discontents, there are 
also occasions when the author’s 
short and gossipy biographies might 
have been culled from Lola Montez’s 
Anecdotes of Love. 

Apparently his major purpose has 
been to inform historical research 
with psychoanalytical speculation. 


I n his previous volume Professor 
Gay proposed foe interesting 
theory that the domestic secrecy 
and priggish reticence of foe 
Victorian bourgeoisie were in feet 
ways of defending themselves against 
a rapidly changing world — and, in 
this study, it becomes clear that it was 
precisely within this well-protected 
and private space that love lad a 
chance to develop and to flourish. 
The book might even have borrowed 
Nancy Milford's title, The Pursuit of 
Love, since it was in foe last century 
that foe "definition oflove as a happy 
conjunction of excitement and 
tenderness" was finally evolved. 

The great virtue of The Tender 
Passion, therefore, is that it stays 
dose to its material and in the process 
shows up the self-indulgent fantasiz- 
ing of those who prattle on about 
"Victorian Values", whether in ap- 
proval or indignant dismissal. The 
Nineteenth Century had many het- 
erogeneous and inconsistent values, 
often competing within foe same 
family or even within foe same 
individual. But if there is a difference 
between the Victorian period and our 
own, it lies in the greater earnestness 
with which they debated these ques- 
tions of love and passion. They 
thought about the place of sexuality in 
fiction, for example, and they ago- 
nized over the relative demands of 
“art” and “social responsibility". If 
they were censors (more often than 
not, self-censors) it was out of 
principle: in our generation we may 
pride ourselves on accepting more, 
but we generally do so only from lack 
of prinaple. To read this book is to 
become painfully aware of the debt 
that we owe to our immediate 
ancestors, and of foe extent to which 
we have betrayed their inheritance.

Wimmin’s life in 
Ancient Rome 


In the last century, Roman 
women, unlike Greek ones, 
appeared even shockingly lib- 
erated: often mistresses of 
their own property, able to 
divorce their husbands at will 
(usually recovering their dow- 
ries), and often sexually scan- 
dalous. From today's point of 
view, things look rather differ- 
ent as Jane Gardner shows in 
this balanced and informative 
survey. Satirists like Juvenal, 
who lambasts upper-class 
women with pretensions to 
learning or a passion for 
gladiators, and even for fight- 
ing in foe arena themselves, 
are biased sources: Messalina 
was hardly typical. 

Evidence from foe Roman 
lawyers, and from inscriptions 
tell us more about the average 
woman, and show the limits 
on foe independence of alL 

Dr Gardner shows convinc- 
ingly how concern for foe 
interests of foe family and its 
property lies at the base of 
many of the legal provisions 
concerning women; limits on 
what a woman could inherit or 
bequeath, for example, aim to 
preserve foe property of the 
family she came from. 

A slave woman of course 
had no family, either legally 
or, too often, in practice: one 
girl m Egypt had been sold five 
times before she was fourteen, 
as the log-book that went with 
her attested. And a slave had 
no property, except by her 
master's courtesy; to a large 
extent she herself was proper- 
ty, and if she lost her virginity 
to a man outside her master's 
household, the latter could sue 
the former for damages. 

Nor, legally, was there much 
movement towards greater 
freedom over the centuries, 
though the power of the father 
was to some extent eroded in 
favour of that of the courts. 
The Emperor Augustus, in his 
concern for marriage and the 
birth-rate, freed women with 
three children from the neces- 
sity of having a tutor, and 
allowed them also to make 
wins; but be also tried to force 
them, or at feast the better-off 
among them, into marriage or 
remarriage by harsh penalties, 
and. not very successfully, to 
impose a puritanical morality, 
for example tv banishing 
them at the games to the 
segregated seats at the lack of 
the auditorium. 

Dr Gardner writes with 
clarity and touches of wiu her 
work is an antidote to the 
nonsense some proponents of 
women's studies have pro- 
duced bn ancient subjects, 
though she pan be pleasingly 
tart, as when noting that Sc

as recorded by 
The Spectator 

edited by Charles Moore 
and Christopher Hawtree 

Michael Joseph. £14.95 

In a bad week. The Spectator 
is given over 10 politics. The 
home pages are heavy with the 
incense of Maggiolatry — they 
almost click as you turn 
them — while foreign contrib- 
utors unfold their thoughts on 
momentous Swedish cabinet 
reshuffles. In a good week, 
however, one has the impres- 
sion that all the contributors 
have gone slightly round the 
twist, and they take us delight- 
fully far away from the usual 
fly-blown political catsmeaL 
Besides, there wflj be Waugh’s 
brilliant wine bargains. Here is 
a good weekly at work — 
opening up worlds untouched 
by foe Daily Grind and giving 
us a bit of perspective. In 
furtherance whereof The 
Spectator should employ a 
historian: we could have He- 
rodotus on catching crocodiles 
and a storming book-review 
or two from Plato. 

But nothing else really mat- 
ters while there is still the 
novelist Alice Thomas Ellis’s 
“Home Life" column. She and 
Jeffrey Bernard (his “Low 
Life" column accompanies 
hers) can stand comparison 
with foe greatest double-acts 
of history — Moet et Chandon, 
Jennings and Darbisfaire, 
Hillard and Botting — though 
“Ellis and Bernard" do sound 
rather like a pair of !9thC. 
body-snatchers. 

All Miss Ellis does is cast an 
incredulous and alarmingly 
frank eye over a world that 
seems congenitally incapable 
of behaving as any ordinary, 
sensible, unbiased housewife 
and mother would expea it to. 
Here she rails at a washing 
machine which: 

reminded me of a bulldog 
because of its reluctance to 
relinquish its contents. Often it 
would refuse to open, couching 
against the wall with a Cyclo- 
pean glare, its jaws damped 
tightly dim on one’s entire 
collection of night-dresses, 
towels, underwear, etc, while 
one pranced impotently about, 
clicking knobs and kicking it. 

Males occasionally intrude, 
but strictly in the rote to which 
males are best suited: as 
ibils.lt is all like this. It is the 
funniest anthology I have read 
in years, with only one serious 
lapse — Miss Ellis’s picture. 
Nota gin ora fog in sight. 

Intelligent selection gives 
foe somewhat solemn writing 
of 1936 a certain horrid 
fascination, as decent journal- 
ists straggle to make sense of

Franco, and foe abdication. 1 
preferred the leisure pages. 
"Janus", lamenting the 
railways' inability to deal with

Macaulay's delightful “Mar-

sharp piece on a Mosley rally;

Paige’s impossible task 


Victor Paige’s resignation after 
only 1 8 months as chairman of the 
NHS management board is being 
claimed by almost every sectional 
interest in the health service as 
justification for its views. 

Michael Meacher. Labour’s so- 
cial services spokesman, said it 
"must throw into doubt the whole 
managerial experiment in the 
National Health Service". Charles 
Kennedy, the SDP health spokes- 
man. said it showed that the 
managerial revolution resulting 
from the Griffiths report should 
have been run as a pilot scheme to 
start with. The health service 
unions argued that proper funding 
was needed rather than business 
management, while the Hospital 
Consultants and Specialists Ass- 
ociation. which believes that de- 
cisions had been taken out of its 
hands, said Paige’s resignation 
proved that the management sys- 
tem was breaking down. 

In reality the main effect of the 
resignation is to show the diffi- 
culties of managing a highly 
politically sensitive £18 billion 
service with almost one million 
employees. The management 
board has been caught between the 
pressures of ministers who are 
directly accountable to Parliament 
for every aspect of the service, the 
civil service, which runs the NHS 
but is not ultimately responsible, 
and from doctors, nurses and the 
unions, who have been deeply 
suspicious of such management 

In fact general management — 
outside the DHSS headquarters 
in south London — is beginning to 
progress despite teething troubles 
and some bad appointments. The 
change of focus away from hos- 
pitals towards the community, the 
introduction of more day surgery, 
shorter lengths of stay, financial 
discipline and the redistribution 


Nicholas Timmins on the need for 
a radically new approach if the health 
service is to be properly managed 


of cash to the poorer parts of the 
NHS means that tough and often 
unpalatable decisions have to be 
taken. For all the hardship this 
causes, the ability of management 
to enforce hard decisions rather 
than settle for postponement of 
problems that only worsen with 
time —witness the difficulties St 
Thomas's hospital in London is 
facing — is leading to decisions 
which are better in the long term, 
albeit unpopular. 

At the centre things have 
proved more difficult. Manage- 
ment inside the department is luce 
working in a political goldfish 
bowl. The board does not have the 
same anus-length relationship 
with ministers that the National 
Coal Board. British Steel and the 
BBC enjoy. Everyone has a stake 
in the NHS and the 17,000 letters 
from MPs each year and the 
thousands of parliamentary ques- 
tions with which ministers deal 
mean they are reluctant and 
perhaps politically unable to hand 
over true management control. 
Ministers are also subjected to 
pressure from the professional and 
trade union organizations on ev- 
ery issue that affects them. 

Ministers are unable to resist 
the getting involved in local rows 
over laundry contracts, the closure 
of small hospitals, nurses being 
given notice to quit residential 
accommodation that bealth 
authorities want to sell oft; and a 
host of other health service mat- 
ters. While regional and district 
health authorities are now given 


targets for the year in an annual 
review and called to account for 
their progress, the management 
board has no such freedom, and 
the division of its responsibilities 
from those of the civil service in 
the DHSS is still unclear. 

The board is unable to do 
anything without ministerial ap- 
proval. Norman Fowler, the So- 
cial Services Secretary, could not 
delegate sufficient power to Paige, 
and Paige was unable to wrest it 
from him and the dvfl service. 

Two examples of the friction 
between Fowler and Victor Paige 
stand out One is general 
managers' pay. The speed at which 
they were appointed led to huge 
disparities m salary. Managers 
who were former NHS 
administaiors were earning 
around £30,000, while outsiders 
were appointed at up to £45,000; 
one medical officer who became a 
manager earns around 
3,000. Paige wanted to offer high 
salaries to reward performance 
and also to attract outsiders, of 
whom only 86 have been ap- 
pointed out of a total of 750. 
Fowler was frightened of the 
political storm that could result 
after last year’s row over top 
salaries. A decision was held up 
for months. The circular pro- 
duced a fortnight ago does nothing 
to sort out the disparities. 

Or take the sale of nurses’ 
homes and other residential 
accommodation. Fowler, havi 
had the report for months, 
denly seized on that as a way of 


general 

£50,000 


raising £170 million or more for 
the NHS at the height of the 
government's asset-selling, pri- 
vatizing, council-home selling 
drive. Health authorities were 
ordered to draw up plans for sales 
immediately. Fowler then realized 
that the inflexible plans could 
mean nurses being evicted, and he 
pledged that this would not Is 
pen. Health authorities were ti 
not to proceed with sales involv- 
ing notice to quit. The sell-off 
plans are in chaos. 

Victor Paige was unable to 
escape from the. restrictions im- 
posed by health ministers and get 
on with the job of managing the 
service. He lost favour with the 
Prime Minister. Issues the board 
would like to tackle, such as 
differential pay rates in different 
pans of the country, are regarded 
as politically sensitive and are 
likely to be postponed. Paige 
appears to have felt it was all too 
slow and too difficult and some 
ministers believe be achieved 
little. 

Despite his resignation an at- 
tempt to introduce general 
management of the NHS may still 
be made. Senior managers 
throughout the health service are 
impressed by the quality of the 
management board Paige helped 
to assemble. But either the 
management plan will have to be 
reassessed or a more charismatic 
chairman found who must be 
trusted to get on with the job. 
Since it took Fowler and Kenneth 
Clarke, then Minister of Health, 
months to find Paige, and since 
Paige was not their first choice and 
the experience has proved so 
unsatisfactory, it seems that a 
suitable replacement is not going 
to be easy to find.

Gwynne Roberts on a significant switch in Kurdish rebel strategy 

Now Iraq 
must 


fight on 
a second 
front 

In northern Iraq, pro-Iranian 
Kurdish guerrillas have launched 
a new form of guerrilla warfare on 
the Iraqi army which is already 
having strategic implications for 
the Iran-Iraq conflict 

Until relatively recently, Kurd- 
ish rebels relied heavily on hit and 
run tactics, obliging the Iraqis to 
conduct a holding operation and 
avoiding confrontation when and 
where possible. Thanks to this 
tactic, the rebels managed to 
establish a “liberated” zone 
stretching from Iraq’s northern 
bolder with Iran to within a few 
miles of Zakho, a town near the 
Syrian and Turkish frontiers. In 
some areas, the territories ex- 
tended to a depth of 50 miles 
southwards. 

When I visited the region late 
last year the Iraqis were still 
holding on to the major towns and 
policing the main roads between 
them. But the army’s writ ex- 
tended just a few miles or so, and 
then the rebels took over. Civilian 
hostility towards the Iraqis was 
almost palpable, although Kurd- 
ish informers working with Iraqi 
military intelligence were causing 
the guerillas serious problems. 
Nevertheless, the Pesh Merga 

lerrillas (literally "those who 

ice death”) were able to visit 
villages in daylight, virtually 
within spitting distance of army 
positions. At night they seemed to 
have few problems in raiding 
inside the towns. 

Already Kurdish commanders 
were planning a change of strategy. 
Field guns were beginning to 
arrive m the Kurdistan moun- 
tains, brought in from Iran by 
mule, and they were building up 
an arsenal of shoulder-held SAM- 
7 missiles and a whole range of 
lightweight weaponry from 
Doshka machine guns to Hungar- 
ian-made Kalashnikovs. 

One of the Kurdish regional 
commanders, Sayeed Salah, 
briefed me on how the Pesh Merga 
would intensify their operations. 



Newly armed Pesh Merga guerrillas set off to attack a government position 


"We shall launch much larger 
attacks and overrun Iraqi bases,” 
he told me at a camp deep inside 
Iraqi Kurdistan. “We want to 
remove the Iraqis from along the 
roads, and attack those towns with 
big Iraqi garrisons. We intend 
dosing off the main roads and 
encircling the enemy. We are 
confident we can do this in the 
near future.” 

Sayeed Salah, a veteran com- 
mander of 25 years standing, 
belongs to the guerrilla army of 
Masoud Baizani, leader of the 
Kurdistan Democratic Party 
(KDP). This force is rapidly 
expanding as more weapons arrive 
from its main allies, Iran, Syria 
and Libya. Barzani already com- 
mands an army believed to be in 
excess of 10,000 men as well as a 
militia of double that figure. He 
also seems to be near a peace 
agreement with a rival guerrilla 
force, the Patriotic Union of 
Kurdistan (PUK), which could 
lead to a united front against the 
Iraqi army later this year. 

The change of strategy they bad 
told me about before Christmas 
became reality last month. A big 
force of Pesh Merga overran the 
district town of Mangesh north of 
Dohuk and captured 1,500 men, 
two tanks, six armoured personnel 
earners, artillery and anti-aircraft 
guns and large stocks of ammu- 
nition. In a desperate attempt to 
regain this important base, the 
Iraqis sent in a force of around 
6.000 troops, including the bri- 
gade of its elite presidential 
guards. 

A group of foreign journalists 
subsequently flown into the area 
reported that the army seemed to 
be in control again, but the rebels 
dispute this. “They have misled 


journalists before, and they're 
doing it again”, said a guerrilla 
r epresentative. “These correspon- 
dents were told our forces were not 
in control of even one inch offraqi 
territory, which is plainly 
ridiculous.” 

Whatever the truth of the 
matter, the Iraqis certainly see the 
Kurds as a serious threat. Last 
month, the Iraqi army, in an 
offensive involving 10,000 men, 
tried to split the guerrilla zones in 
two with a drive towards the 
Turkish border. The battle lasted 
five days, and Masoud Bazani 
claimed the Iraqis had been forced 
"to retreat in disarray”. 

The attack on Mangesh marked 
a serious turning point in the 
guerrilla campaign, which is in- 
tended to exert a stranglehold on 
some of Iraq’s most vital arter- 
ies— the highway linking the 
country to Turkey and, very dose 
to that, the oil pipeline which runs 
from the Kirkuk oilfields with the 
Turkish port of DortyoL More 
than half of Iraq’s oil exports — 
about 1.1 million barrels a day — 
are pumped along tbe pipeline. 
This is one of the most heavily 
guarded installations in Iraq, and 
the Kurds have managed to hit it 
only three times. 



The Iraqis have two brigade and 
four battalion bases in foe Dohuk 
region from which to control the 
road, tbe provincial capital and 
other towns. However, the 1 1th. 
Division, based at Zakho, has the 
specific task of protecting the 
pipeline. Should the Kurds cap- 
ture any other important town 
they will move with much greater 
frequency against the highway. 
Attacks on it no w are risky, but the 
Kurds say they have made at least 
six in the last few months. 

Villages to the east of the 
highway are Kurdish, but on the 
western side Arab farmers have 
been moved in. They are well 
armed and help to guard both the 
road and the pipeline. 

The conventional wisdom is 
that fear of Turkish reprisals —the 
Turkish army is said to have 
30,000 men force along die border 
with Iraq — has prevented the 
Pesh Meiga from striking at the 
pipeline more frequently, but tbe 
main reason is dearly a military 
one. 

Buried underground and pro- 
tected every few hundred yards by 
fortified positions, it is a difficult 
target. An army division is de- 
ployed along the pipeline sup- 
ported by various irregular units. 
It is patrolled by dogs and 
protected by electronic sensors. 

"When we send a force to attack 
it, we don't expect them to 
return,” admitted Masoud Bazani. 
Soon, though, with heavy artillery 
already in place, the Kurds maybe 
able to shell the pumping stations 
and stop the flow of oil for months 
at a time. That, should it come 
about, could have a dramatic 
effect on Iraq's capacity to main- 
tain the war with Iran.

will 


A whisper stirs at Westminster 
that the Channel Tunnel is begin- 
ning to look more like a national 
albatross than an asset and that its 
implications for employment, 
trade and taxpayers’ money will be 
much more profound — and ad- 
verse — than the promoters' 
glossy advertising or the gov- 
ernment’s slender White Paper 
have admitted. 

It is a widespread fallacy that 
the Chunnel will boost employ- 
ment It is fair for tbe Channel 
Tunnel Group to claim that there 
will be a temporary increase in 
jobs of around 5,000 at the peak of 
tbe construction period, but as a 
pamphlet by tbe Cbnservative 
Selsdon Group dearly dem- 
onstrates, all the excited talk of 
40,000 new jobs during construc- 
tion is hogwash. As for permanent 
employment even tbe White Pa- 
per admits that there will be a net 
loss of 6.000 jobs in Dover and 
Folkestone, 'the two nearest ferry 
ports — by far the most sanguine 
estimate. 

Stockbroker Phillips and Drew 
calculates that the Chunnel mil 
force a “bloodbath" of ferry 
dosures, not just at the Channel 
ports but as far away as Hull, 
Immingham, Great Yarmouth, 
Ipswich, Felixstowe, Poole, Wey- 
mouth and Plymouth, with job 
losses of around 30,000. Against 
all this potential havoc the 


Jonathan Aitken marshalls the argnments 
against government wishful thinking 


Chunnel promises to create 
merely 3,800 permanent jobs at 
the exit/enuy area at Chenion. 

The Selsdon Group pamphlet 
also demonstrates. In great detail, 
what the cost will be to the public 
purse. To take only one small 
example, the Department of 
Transport is to acquire com- 
pulsorily land for the 14-mile 
stretch of the M 20 between 
Maidstone and Ashford not yet 
built. This, it is thought, will cost 
£60 million. 

Although they have been tbe 
most vocal critics, tbe ports are 
only part of a much wider 
problem. Tbe fundamental flaw in 
tbe Chunnel is that it gives 
massive trade advantages to the 
French, who are preparing to cash 
in on the bonanza with vigorous 
enthusiasm. The French govern- 
ment plans a plethora of 
Eldorado-style grants and in- 
centives in the Calais region. 

On a revenue basis, 72 per cent 
of cross-channel ferry transporta- 
tion is handled by British compa- 
nies (Townsend Thomsen, Sally, 
British Ferries, and Hoverspced); 
the rest is controlled by SNCF of 
France (12 per cent) and RMT of 
Belgium (16 per cent). Clearly 


Britain needs access to Europe, 
rather than Europe to Britain. 
Seventy per cent of tbe cross- 
channel cars, passengers, and 
coaches are British. The majority 
of freight is transported in British 
lorries. Much of the revenue these 
enterprises bring to Britain will be 
lost the day tbe Chunnel opens, for 
the concession agreement pro- 
vides that 50 per cent of hs 
revenues and profits go to France. 

In addition to this instant 
windfall, the French are - im- 
plementing an extraordinarily 
aggressive state-financed develop- 
ment programme of new roads, 
rail links, and harbour improve- 
ments in the Channel area. These 
are dearly aimed at capturing the 
lion's share of British import 
trade. Manufactured goods im- 
ported into Britain now enter 
directly through British ports, but 
in future they could be unloaded 
In France and transhipped 
through the tunnel. Tbe British 
Ports Association fears that 40 per 
cent of British traffic could be lost 
in this way. 

Perhaps the person with most 
cause to worry is tbe Chancellor of 
tbe Exchequer jn 1993. His prede- 
cessors will have spent nearly 


£1 billion of public money on 
road and rail to support a private 
commercial project Who dares 
still claim that the Channel is 
exdusively privately financed, 
when it will cost British Rail 
£400 million for new rolling stock 
alone? It wfll be in the 1990s that 
the real costs will have to be paid. 
The less of taxable profits to the 
Exchequer which would have been 
paid by the ferry companies 
during the lifetime of the con- 
cession has been calculated at 
£2-5 billion. Add to that trade 
losses, foreign exchange earnings 
losses, unemployment benefit in 
ferry towns and shipyards and tbe 
cost must at least double. 

The Chunnel is a project in 
which hasty evaluation has pro- 
duced a bad result and short-term 
private profit has triumphed over 
long-term public interest. But all is 
not lost- It is a political project and 
it will live or die through politics: 
At least a year of parliamentary in- 
fighting lies ahead, and to judge by 
the unexpected pitfalls thebiH has 
encountered so far, ft can survive 
only if substantially amended. 

The Kentish interests werethe 
first to sound the alarm bells over 
this bill, but they will not be foe 
last. Hie parliamentary voyage of 
tbe Channel Tunnel Bill is going to 
be long and hazardous. -

Kinnock out to 
curry 



Neil Kinnock has been talking to 
the people of India in India. He 
has promised to repeal the Im- 
migration and Nationality Acts of 
1971 and 1981, and to replace 
them by a law which is ”non- 
discri minatory” and "non-radar" , 
a clear statement to his foreign 
audience that he thinks "tbs-, 
criminatory” and "radal” are 
proper desorptions of the law as it 
stands — though tbe European 
Court of Human Rights has' 
pronounced to the contrary. 

This undertaking virtually re- 
peats what Kinnock has said 
before in equally vague terms, but 
the context in which be repeated it 
gives ft new significance. The only 
rational purpose of changing the 
law is to enable the number of 
people already coming here from 
the Indian sub-continent to in- 
crease. Those who press for it 
would not waste their time if they 
did not see a need for this. 

Kinnock, however, is reported. 
to have said that he does not think 
there would be a rush of applicant 
passport-holders. If what bothers 
him is foe principle of tbe matter, 
namely repealing a bad racist law, 
it should not matter to him if there 
were a rash, even a large one. Yet 
if he does have any worry about 
the numerical consequences, there 
is one way be might satisfy those 
who are obsessed with “race” but 
without any ride of increasing 
□umbers. What bothers them is 
tha t the patrial provisions of the 
1971 Act give a greater right of 
entry and citizenship to people 
with pad family connections here 
than to those without them. 

By the facts of history, these are 
mostly, but certainly not exclu- 
sively, people from the . okl 
Commonwealth. This is said to 
constitute racism. Kinnock could 
therefore perhaps satisfy the tortu- 
ous thinking of the racially ob- 
sessed by repealing the [resent 
patrial provisions with their kin- 
ship rights. But that would still not 
fblnl his humanitarian wish to 
satisfy those who wish to enable 
the n amber of immigrants from 
foe sub-continent to rise. Though 
theory is their battleground, their 
interest is severely practicaL 

Nor would it strike most people 
as fair to remove foe patrial rights 
which mainl y benefit old Com- 
monwealth people. For these 
rights are only possible (all law 
being based on feasibility) because 
there is no risk of a a flow of ever- 
extending families from (say) New 
Zealand coming here simply to 
benefit their material circum- 
stances, 

If New Zealanders settle here it 
is usually with a wish to be 
assimilated, and they, and their 
families, quickly are But this does 
not seem to be foe aspiration of a 
good many Asian immigrants, 
including those still brought in as 
bridegrooms specifically to main- 
tain the cultural separateness of 
their community. 

Which brings us to another 
proposal Labour is said to be 
considering; the repeal of the so- 
called primary purpose rule under 
which would-be spouses for settle- 
ment must prove that their pri- 
mary purpose is not simply to get 
into Britain. Most people see this 
as fair. They do not want to keep 
apart people who are in love. But 
they do not care much for the 
arrangement whereby the custom

golden thrall 


There comes a time in eveiy 
World Cup when your team is 
knocked out and you start think- 
ing about transferrring your alle- 
giance to another side, if only to 
seep your interest in the com- 
petition alive. Assuming you had 
any interest in the first place, of 
course. Now, it is just possible that 
England, after fosmg their opening 
match, may not get through to tbe 
next round, in which case a lot of 
Englishmen will be wondering 
who to wave their scarves at next 
But just how do you deride which 
foreign country to be patriotic for? 

My experience may be of some 
help here, as my side has already 
been knocked out of the World 
Cup. Although most of the blood 
in my veins is Engl ish, I grew up in 
North Wales, near Wrexham, and 
out of some naive desire not to 
seem too foreign I started to 
support Welsh teams at an early 
age. It grew to be a lifelong habit. 
When it came to rugby it was quite 
easy, but supporting the Welsh 
national football team has been an 
altogether more painful business. 
The occasional triumph has not 
compensated for the frequent 
humiliation or humdrum draw. 

What has made it worse is that 
Wales has a habit of leaping to the 




„ qualify 

narrowest of mar gins Usually 
they have been helped out of the 
World Cup by Scotland scram- 
bling an undeserved victory; in 
fact, four years ago Wales were 
knocked out by Scotland cheating 
their way to undeserved victory — 
a Scottish player handled in the 
penalty area, the referee thought ft 
was a Welshman, and I am still 
waiting for the Scot to own up. 

With Wales knocked out of the 
Cup by Scotland again this year, I 
have si>ent the last few months 
wondering to whom I should give 
the doubtful honour of my sup- 
port. Not to Scotland, of course; 
that’s a bit like asking Hamlet to 
be Claudius's No 1 fan. Nor 'to 
England; although ft is~my own 

country, all those years of support- 

' t: . ■■ i 


ing Wales has bitten deep and I 
can't help seeing England as a 
worthy, plodding team with none 
of those romantic, underdog, fufl- 
bloodedly stirring attributes which 
' make Wales worth supporting. 

I watched England being beaten 
by Portugal the other night, and I 
cannot say that my pulse rate 
changed much during the match — 
indeed, there was a suspicion of 
pleasure at seeing foe old enemy 
being beaten. What I need is a rip- 
roaring. swashb uckling nam 
believes in attack and a bit of 
poetry, rather than prosaic szolid- 
. ity, which is why I find myself 
wavering towards Brazil and 
France. 

One of the wonders of tbe 
modern age is that. Brazil have not 
only shown the most individual 
flair, they have also been die most 
successful side — a rare example 
of the good guys winning. And in 
recent years France have done tbe 
same on the European even 
though they so cruelly fell at the 
last hurdle in -the last World Cup. 

So it has come as a great shock 
to see both these t«nw looking so 
fackadaisical in Mexico, and to 
find the banner of bright football 
beiim waved by, of all countries, 
the Soviet Union. If the Russians 
can repeat the nature of that 6-0 
victory over Hungary once or 
twice 1 shall seriously think about 
sitting in front of my TV waring a 
hammer and sickle. The great 
thing about having your t«im 
knocked out so' early on is that 
thenceforth you can switch and 
change allegiance at will, as any 
English. supporter at Wimbledon 
must know. 

Meanwhile, onething l ran look 
forward to next season is seeing 
my team playing in Europe, if 
there's one thing .more painful 
titan backing Wales, ft is support- 
ing Wrexham, but this season they 
a mazingl y won the- final of the 
Welsh Qm against none other 
than Kidderminster United and 
are now. into the Cup Winners

could be electoral gains (for 
Kinnock) among Asian voters, not 
losses among white: ones.” I 
wonder. 

The Guardian also thinks, 
scathingly, that the Tories win be 
tempted "to play tbe race and 
immigration can!”, s things get 
tough for them nearer the election. 
On the contrary, it is the Tories 
who have damped the whole issue 
down and Kinnock who » reviv- 
ing iL It wiD be the electors who 
will play that card if anyone does; 
they are not deaf to what Kinnock 
says and they are entitled to take a 
view of ft. 

Their overriding priority isthat 
nothing should worsen tire social 
problems we already have with 
our divided communities;, that 
there should be time for 
consolidation and integration. 
Everyone knows tbe difficulties in 
our inner cities now; after the 
nation had proved its basic noo- 
racism by accepting^ mfifiomr so 
newcomers, some of os saw this' 
trouble /arming as the commu- 
nities in some areas became 
unbalanced. But to predict that 
possibility at that tune simply 
incurred the charge of sdftblfiU- 
ing prophecy. 

In the prevailing mafia dSmmtm 
of the 1960s and eariyrTOs "rate” 
was hdd to be the oveF-ridmg 
moral issue and any anxieties 
expressed either about projected 
immigration statistics or the fotial 
consequences were angrily , dis- 
missed (with contrary statistics) as 
racism. 

If at that time I had predicted 
that in the 1980s a Bradford 
headmaster would be ousted from 
his job for daring to voice opin- 
ions opposed by the local Asian 
community, or that a young 
Bristol teacher who had married a 
West Indian would be accused of 
racism largely because he insisted 
on leaching English as a second 
language, or that there would be 
racial attacks against people of aU 
communities, including whites, or 
that the Labour Party would be 
riven over black sections (and left-

have been called a racist simply

matters worse.

; The loyalist marchers are at 
H most on the streets of North- 
em Ireland, their arrival 
i preceded by the preliminary 
verbal skirmishes over routes 
*■ and policing. Mr Tom King 
l has confirmed that the Assem- 

' bly at Storinom win very likely 
be denied a new lease, of life, 
dashing any lin gering hopes 
that devolutionary srhemp s- 
can be 1 made to work in the 
foreseeable future. In the back- 
ground there is a tide of, 
opinion in favour . of 
“integrationist” solutions run- 
ning 'inside the unionist 
community. 

The recent, relative quiet in 
Northern Ireland should not 
disguise the . feet that the 
Hillsborough agreement is 
about to race an important 
test The Government requires 
resolve to resist the ever-.' 
present temptations to boy off 
the threat of force with con- 
cessions which would other- 
wise not be offered: 

In the autumn, the Govern- 
ment win ■ again find itself 
talking to unionist politicians 
who will require reassurance 
that the Hillsborough agree- 
ment does not alter their 
existing position inside the 
United Kingdom. Some of 
that reassurance may flow 
from the simple passage of 
time establishing that the 
treaty has not altered the . 
constitution by sleight of hand. 
More might be added if the 
governments can bring them- 
selves to reveal more of the 
benefits of security coopera- 
tion than they hav&ih the past • 

The word “integration” can 
cover a multitude of meanings. 
Its advocates suggest that the 
present minimal scrutiny of. 
legislation affecting the prov- 
ince can- be improved, that 
normal local government pow- 
ere could be returned to local 
authorities and even that 
mainland political parties ' 
should contest elections there - 


in short it aims to make 
Northern Ireland more similar 
in constitutional' status to 
Wales and Scotland, using the 
attractive slogan of ""equality 

of citizen stop”. 

. What integratiomsts do not. 
often recommend abolishing is 
the key piece of legislation 
which distinguishes Ulster 


dosed developments which 
can be construed as integra- 
tionist (notably increasing the 
allocation of Ulster seats at 
.Westminster.) But direct rule 
has .also had the power to 
explore the avenues for politi- 
cal progress, to hold elections 
under PR and break the 
Government's own rules on

the constitutional status of the 
province to be locally deter- 
mined. With that safeguard 
-gone, unionists would be 
more, and not less, vulnerable 
to the opinions of the rest of 
' the/ United Kingdom elec- 
torate. At -the moment those 
do not seenr -particularly 
. sympathetic tip a union which 
needs to be defended by 
violence against the police. 

The heart of the problem 
faced by any British govern- 
ment in Northern Ireland lies 
in the existence of an armed 
conspiracy which aims to ex- 
pel it. The ; most powerful 
argument against integration is 


that it would make, not the which has wrecked so many 


faintest difference to the 
government's efforts to defeat 
this threat In the short term at 
least, any pronounced shift 
. towards integration would be 
likely to trigger off a revived 
campaign by the Provisional 
IRA and to recruit more votes 
- to its political arm, Sinn Fein, 
from nationalists who would 
see their constitutional repre- 
. sen ta lives -discredited. It 
would- throw away the accu- 
mulated benefits of a progress 
sive improvement m relations 
across the border, particularly 
over security, which has been 
further enhanced by 
.Hillsborough. Any shift in 
favour of unionist concerns 
which destroy ed that would be 
too high a price for malting the 
agreement more acceptable. 

Those changes have mainly 
taken place under direct rule 
: which has sometimes sahe- 


i initiatives in the past: no 
changes would be worth mak- 
ing if they allow anti-agree- 
ment unionists to obstruct 
government 
There is room for extending 
facilities for scrutiny of legisla- 
tion affecting Northern Ireland 
— provided it does not allow 
full-scale parliamentary 
wrecking tactics against the 
agreement For instance, if it 
would win over some unionist 
opinion, any Secretary of State 
contemplating indefinite di- 
rect rule should be ready to 
create advisory bodies which 
would make dedsion-making 
more accountable and acces- 
sible The price of some delay 
to government business is 
worth paying, and the more 
closely .any such body can be 
aligned with the business of 
the intergovernmental con- 
ference, the better. 


A MANAGER FOR HEALTH

Health. Service board of: 
management is a matter, for 
regret but not for lamentation..' 
From the Government's point 
of view it is a distraction at a 
time when it is attempting to 
convince a sceptical public of 
its support for the health 
service. For the Secretary of 
State for Social Services and. 
the Paymaster-General (Mr 
Kenneth Clarke; the former 
Health Minister), it is a per- 
sonal blow which inevitably 
raises doubts about the wis- 
dom of their choice of Mr 
Paige two years ago. 

For the doctors and nurses 
who are on the receiving end of 
the new -managerialism, the 
grand reforms resulting from 
the Griffiths report are once 
again thrown into uncertainty. 
The patients, voters, NHS 
consumers who are usually the 
last to appreciate the im- 
portance of management, but 
the first to complain about 
shortfalls in provision, deserve 
a strong restatement of the 
purpose ' of managerial 
reorganization. A - central 
board and a strong figure.at its 
hub exist not to save money, 
but to improve the delivery of 
medical care to them. For their 
sake Mr Paige should be 


Those are the reasons- for 
regret That regret should be 
. restrained, however, because it 
begins to look as ifMr Paige, 
an able and enterprising 
businessman, was not the right 
man for this particular job. His 
letter of resignation appears to 
imply that a dean-out project 
of management has been ham- 
pered by interfering bureau- 
crats and callow politicians. 
This is a naive view. Public 
services paid for out of tax? 
ation cannot escape the atten- 
tion of MPs acting as conduits' 
for constituent complaints. As 
long as ministers must account 
to Parliament for their 
stewardship of: public money, 
they will wish to intervene in 
decisions about resource . 
allocation and administration. 
Regional and district authori- 
ties within the NHS are 
equally forums for political 
discussion and statements of 
account 

Mr Paige wanted greater 
autonomy than the political 
- facts of Hie allowed. Equally, 
however, a more comfortably 
suited performer might , have 
created space fin himself by 
accepting that mangement in 
the public services is inher- 


• : ently a political activity: in 
jother words, something dif- j 
fereritfrom management in 
the private sector. 

The job description for Mr 
Paige's successor is thus 
demanding and long. The 
quest for greater effectiveness 
in the spending of money 
within the NHS must go on; it 
stands outside the large ques- 
tion of the NHS budget. It 
would certainly be easier to 
secure changes in work prac- 
tice among medical personnel 
and redistribution of resources 
if total outlays were growing at 
: a fester rate. It certainly is not 
conducive to doctors’ and 
nurses* morale if they believe 
they are being managed for the 
sake of marginal savings. 

The chairman of the NHS 
7 manag emen t board is a cyno- 
sure for all maimer of interest 
groups most of which want 
extra money and the mainte- 
nance of the status quo. Few 
. understand that better than the 
author of the reform plan that 
Mr Paige was, supposed to 
begin to implement (and 
which is successfully being put 
into action). The Government 
is entitled , strenuously to ask 
Sir Roy Griffiths if he will not 
return to complete the task he 
began in 1982. 


THE RED AND THE GREEN 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Police powers and hippy convoy 


It is direct rule which has, for 
some years now, been the only 
form of government which 
does not arouse the disabling 
hostility of at least some 
section of the community. 
With hopes of devolution 
fading, the Government seems 
to have embarked on an 
extended period of direct rule. 

It would only be justified in 
taking any small “ integ- 
rate onist" step once the sum- 
mer is over and if it helps 
direct rule acquire a far higher 
degree of consent The Hills- 
borough agreement was de- 
signed to withstand the 
Operation of the local veto 


states to ensure “the safe and 
danger-free development of 
nuclear energy” this is quite a 
turnaround. 

If Moscow now recognizes 
the primacy of : safety in 
developing nuclearpower, that 
is to the good But if it is 
merely a gesture 1 towauds- 
-■ world opinion and brings no 
benefit to the Soviet people, 
Moscow's good feith will be in 
doubt 

Questionable too. must be 
the Soviet leader's -un- 
characteristic admission that 
Moscow has “no ready 
prescriptions” for the nuclear 
safety system if is proposing. 
The deliberate avoidance of 
ideological prescriptions, 
rarely evident in Soviet official 
documents, would be wholly 
laudable were it not for the 
conditions and" caveats the 
Soviet leadership so often 
inserts into the small .print 


The Soviet leader’s letter to the 
UN Secretary General outlin- 
ing his proposals for an inter- 
national system for nuclear 
safety is welcome confirma- 
tion that the Soviet Union 
remains as serious in wanting 
to participate in such a system 
as It was two weeks after 
ChemobyL The specifics of Mr 
Gorbachov's proposals — so 
far as they are known — are 
equally welcome. 

They would provide for the 
establishment of international 
■ machinery, possibly under the 
auspices of. the International, 

Atomic Energy Authority and 
the World Health Organiza- 
tion, to supply immediate 
assistance in a nuclear emer- 
gency. They also recommend 
international co-operation in 
combating the effects of a 
nuclear accident on the terri- 
tory of all the states affected, 
and the fixing of an inter- 
nationally recognized scale of Again, the proof of Moscow's 
admissible radiation levels. good intentions will be its

advocate of nu( j^ ba re ]y "volved in developing nuclear 

safety as- 


Officialiy, it 

acknowledged the 
peel so dominant in dis- 
cussions about nuclear power 
in the;- West. So when Mr 
Gorbachov talks, as he does in 
his Tetter, about foe “universal 
international obligation of ail 


power. 

But the greatest scepticism 
arising from Mr Gorbachov’s 
proposals comes in connection 
with his- stated priority? • the 
introduction of a system of 
prompt notification of a radi- 


ation leak. For it was in the 
matter of notification that the 
Soviet response to the accident 
at Chernobyl was most lamen- 
tably deficient 

Whatever measures were 
taken at the site to minimize 
the damage, whatever mea- 
sures were subsequently taken 
to evacuate the population 
from the danger zone and 
whatever arrangements were 
made to monitor radiation 
levels in food and water in 
affected areas, the feet is that it 
took Moscow three days to tell 
neighbouring countries that 
there had been a nuclear 
accident at all. 

That delay may be explained 
by Soviet reluctance to admit 
to a disaster of this kind, with 
all the adverse publicity it was 
bound to bring. It may be 
explained, ‘ as the. Soviet 
authorities have suggested, by 
the reluctance of local officials 
to divulge the- scale of the 
accident or even to recognize 
its seriousness. And it may be ' 
explained by the clumsiness of 
Soviet hureaucratic and 
communications procedures. 
Bui until problems like these 
have been solved — problems 
which are endemic in the 
Soviet system *- the! value of 
Mr Gorbachov's signature on 
• an imemationaT nudear safety 
agreement miist .be in ques- 
tion. 


From Police Sergeant A. Flynn 
Sir, The comment made by 
Superintendent Coggan of Avon 
and Somerset Police (report. May 
28), that “there is nothing we can 
do to stop them doing it again”, 
referring to the . invasion by hip- 
pies of Mr Les Atwell's kind at 
Yeovil, is a misrepresentation of 
police powers. 

Has he forgotten the powers 
-used by the police (which were 

S iven authority by the High COnrt) 
uring 1984 in the miners' strike, 
where hundreds of persons were 
prevented from entering Notting- 
ham or leaving Kent? 

One accepts that civil trespass 
to land is not subject to criminal 
process of arrest, detention and 
charge etc, but there are numerous 
statutes and the common law 
which were breached prior to and 
during the occupation of Mr 
Atwell's land. 

Presumably the police were 
aware of the hippies' movements, 
in their area and could have 
prevented any anticipated 
breaches of the law — e-g., sus- 
pected acts of criminal damage 
(Criminal Damage Act 1971), 
driving on land other than for 
emergency and numerous other 
offences against road traffic leg- 
islation. Prior to occupation of the 
land, there was sufficient likeli- 
hood of breaches of the peace 
contrary to common law, as 
families in the area were prepared 
to take action against the hippies. 

. Such trespass could be consid- 
ered “c riminal ** within the 
provisoes of S7(i) Criminal Law 
Act 1977 which provides that any 
person in adverse occupation of 
premises (which includes land) 
commits an offence if he has 
already been requested to leave by 
the residential occupier. 

The Police and Criminal Ev- 
idence Act 1984 has given the 
police extended powers to arrest 
persons who have committed any 
offence if such an offender foils to 
provide a satisfactory address, or 
is suspected of giving fake particu- 
lars which would facilitate service 
of summons. Such offences in this 
instance would include breaches 
oflocal byelaws (e.g-, lighting fines 
and summary offences). 

Avon and Somerset Police had 
adequate powers to prevent tres- 
pass but one suspects senior 
officers did not wish for a rep- 
etition of the undignified, violent 
and unsupervised police eviction 
of hippies from the Stonehenge 
area lak year. 

What occurred at Yeovil was an 
exercise of police discretion in 
non-enforcement of the law, a 
decision which, in my view, did 


not serve all the interests of the 
community. But, to imply that the 
police did not have the powers 
either to prevent an intended 
trespass or once it had occurred, to 
remove offenders is, at least, a 
distortion of reality.

From Mr Robert Saunders 
Sir, The hippies have passed 
through. In doing so they have 
created considerable damage on a 
number of farms, great obstruc- 
tion to legitimate road users, have 
allegedly behaved disgustingly in 
supermarkets and caused costly 
deployment of police resources. 

Standing at the barricade to my 
farm entrance as they passed 1 got 
the strong impression that few, if 
any, of their vehicles could have 
recently passed an MOT, that 
equally few carried road fund 
licences and were probably with- 
out insurance. 

Clearly the law of trespass needs 
to be greatly strengthened, but 
without wishing to criticize the 
police, who within broad policy 
did an excellent job, one is bound 
to ask whether existing law is 
being enforced? Why are these 
people allowed to take such ve- 
hicles on to the roads? 

Yours sincerely. 

ROBERT SAUNDERS, 

E. F. Saunders and Sons LuL,

Broad mayne, 

Dorchester, Dorset. 

From Mr J C. Smith 
Sir, If, as you report (May 28), the 
police consider that they are 
unable to prevent the invasion of 
Mr Atwell's land because trespass 
is merely a civil offence, they are 
surely taking too narrow a view of 
their powers. It was held in 
Grayfordv. Choulder{ 1898) 1 QB 
316 that trampling down grass on 
a former's land constituted 
“damage” ‘ under the Malicious 
Damage Act 1861; and there is no 
reason to suppose that the po- 
sition is any different under the 
Criminal Damage Act of 1971. 

• If it is true that the farmer will 
get no silage crop from the field, 
and, consequently, face financial 
ruin, it is a very serious case of 
criminal damage indeed. Criminal 
damage is an arrestable offence, 
punishable with a maximum 0 f jq 
years' imprisonment. 

Yours faithfully, 

J. C SMITH,

Professional status 

From Professor J. G. Lawrence 
Sir, I quarrel violently with one of 
the suggestions in your in many 
ways excellent leader today (May 
22) “Opportunity for schools, 
schools for opportunity.” You 
advocate lifting the regulations 
(temporarily?) so that the un- 
trained enthusiast should be al- 
lowed into the classroom. In the 
same issue of the paper quoting 
the report of HMI you retail a 
horror story of a teacher trying 
and foiling miserably to teach a 
lesson cm ratio. 

Please let there be no more talk 
of untrained teachers! What we 
need are more highly trained 
professionals who know their 
subjects and how to teach them: 
not people learning on the job as 
they try to teach, i do not notice 
anyone sujgesting that hospital 
waiting lists should be reduced by 
someone doing a bit of amateur 
surgery. 

It has taken many years to get 
rid of the concept of the untrained 
graduate and the re-establishment 
of such a category would do 
nothing to help our problems.

Fat of the land 

From the Director of the Inter- 
national Nutrition Foundation 
Sir. Professor Donald Harrison's 
hedgehogs (May 27) should be 
congratulated. If he subsisted on 
the diet he gives them (wholemeal 
bread and skimmed milk) he 
would get scurvy (deficiency of 
vitamin C) before showing signs of 
deficiency of vitamin A Hegehogs 
make their own vitamin G 
If Professor Harrison added 
boiled tops of nettles to the diet of 
wholemeal bread and skimmed 
milk — and they are distressingly 
prevalent now — be would get in 
his body both vitamins otherwise 
deficient. But perhaps he, like 
hedgehogs, likes a more varied 
diet

Lawyer’s fees 

From Mr Adrian Jack 
Sir, The spectacle of two multi- 
nationals litigating for 60 days in 
the High Court at a cost to 
themselves of £55 in court fees but 
to the public of £50,000 in judge’s 
salary and court heating has strode 
your correspondent today (“The 
harm that Hail sham does”, May 
21) as monstrous. 

What be overlooks is that such 
an action would scarcely have cost 
less than £1 million in solicitors’ 
and barristers’ fees. Given VAT at 
15 per cent and income tax at no 
doubt 60 per cent I calculate the 
state making a profit exceeding the 
£500,000 mark - surely not a bad 
bargain? 

Your correspondent envisages 
the increased fees he would have 
the multinationals pay going to 
swell the legal aid fund. While 
superficially plausible this has the 
same logic as insisting the liquor 
duty be solely used to fund dimes 
for alcoholics. 

Yours sincerely,

Arms and Africa 

From Mr A. Montague Browne 
Sir, Your juxtaposition (May 30) 
of the Director of Amnesty 
International's plea for the greater 
control of the export of arms to 
tyrannical regimes (though she is 
strangely selective in the examples 
she gives) and Mr Phillip 
Oppenheim’s reflections on the 
sdf-des tractive African approach 
to agriculture is apt 

Should not a condition of aid to 
Africa be a proportional decrease 
in African spending on arms? One 
cannot help wondering if financial 
asistance to, e.g* Ethopia would 
not result in an increase of 
resources devoted to cruelly 
repressive warfare. 

Sophisticated hardware, and in- 
deed any form of armament, 
should be the last priority on the 
shopping list of countries demand- 
ing aid. This would substantially 
assist in a more sympathetic 
reception of their case. 

Yours faithfully.

‘Panic’ on free 
speech clause 

From Professor Antony Flew 
Sir. The Vice-Chancellor of the 
University of Oxford concludes 
his article “Free speech clause that 
backfires" (June 2) with the 
assertion: “There is no case for 
panic legislation on the lines 
proposed". His argument is that 
the clause which the Government 
wants to add to the Education Bill 
now being examined by the House 
of Lords is 

almost certain io lead to loss rather 
than more freedom of speech and to 
endless friction between the authori- 
ties. student unions and the police. 

The Vice-Chancellor may well 
be right in thinking that the 
proposed clause will not do the 
job. although, since the new left 
fascists controlling so many of the 
students’ unions are a main cause 
of the trouble, “friction” between 
those unions on the one side and 
the university and polytechnic 
authorities on the other is pre- 
cisely what is required. 

That some legislation is indeed 
needed, even if not exactly on the 
lines proposed, becomes quite 
dear if we consider the recom- 
mendations made in December by 
the Committee of Vice-Chan- 
cellors and Prindpals. For. 
according to the report in your 
Higher Education Supplement for 
December 20. after expressing its 
“unequivocal and forthright sup- 
port for freedom of speech and 
assembly" that Committee pro- 
ceeded to make it clear that this 
support would be as worthless as it 
has since proved to be. 

For the Committee then ad- 
vised universities “to ban 
controversial meetings on campus 
if they carry a very high risk of 
ending in disaster”. So all that 
anyone needs to do to ensure that 
some disfavoured speaker is not 
heard is to provide convindng 
evidence that they, or — more 
tactfully - other people they 
know, intend to break the meeting 
up. 

Given the black record of the 
student radicals, and the 
. pusillanimity of most university 
authorities, very persuasive ev- 
idence is all too easily provided. 
Yours faithfully, 

ANTONY FLEW,

Right to reprisal 

From Mr Christopher Greenwood 
Sir, Mr Lloyd Cutler (May 31) 
writes of the United Stales air 
attacks on Libya that “there can be 
no doubt of their legality under 
international law” This confident 
assertion is surprising given that 
so many international lawyers, 
inside and outside the United 
States, have doubted the legality of 
the American action. 

Even more surprising is the 
basis on which Mr Cutler seeks to 
justify the action. He claims that 
“any national whose armed forces 
are attacked by another nation in 
violation of the UN Charter has 
the legal right to take a propor- 
tionate military reprisaL" It is 
difficult to find any authority for 
this proposition in current inter- 
national law. 

The Security Council, of which 
the United Slates is a permanent 
member, has consistently rejected 
claims that a right to lake military 
reprisals still exists. The General 
Assembly Declaration on Friendly 
Relations among States (adopted 
in 1970 without opposition from 
the United States) proclaims that 
“States have a duly to refrain from 
acts of reprisal involving the use of 
force." 

The British Government de- 
fended the American action not as 
a reprisal but as an exercise of the 
right of self-defence, as a measure 
designed to prevent an attack 
perceived as imminent rather than 
to punish Libya for its past 
illegalities. It is surely on that 
ground that any claim to legal

Rise in house prices 

From Mr R. B. Cruse . 

Sir, The modest house I bought 18 
years ago has since increased in 
value at a rate of exactly 15.5 per 
cent per annum. It originally cost 
about two and a half times my 
1968 salary; now it is worth some 
five times my present earnings. 

' If ihe value of my house 
continues to inflate at the same 
rate it will be worth over 
£1,100,000 in exactly 20 years' 
lime. 

White looking forward to being 
a millionaire before I die, I cannot 
help feeling apprehensive about 
the 'effect of house cost inflation 
on the economy, the currency, and 
my own children’s prospects of 
buying homes of their own when 
they are adults. Yours faithfully.

Stag hunt decision 

From the Executive Director of the 
League Against Cruel Sports 
Sir. The stag hunters ofDevon and 
Somerset are breathing a sigh of 
relief now that the dust has settled 
a little, following Somerset 
County Council's deferment of a 
decision on the future of 
staghunting on its land (report. 
May 24). It would appear that only 
one area of contention is prevent- 
ing the councillors' obvious dis- 
taste for the hounding of deer 
being 'transformed into a council 
ban. 

This is the claim by hunt 
supporters that if hunting were 
stopped, pro-hunt farmers, de- 
prived of their “sport”, would 
both legally and illegally wreak 
their vengeance on any deer which 
venture onto their land. 


One can sympathise with the 
dilemma of county councillors 
faced with this threat — after all, 
no one wants to be responsible for 
the demise of our largest mammaL 
and forever taunted by cries of 
“we told you so!”. Thus the classic 
moral blackmail tactic prevails — 
at least for the moment. 

According to a 1985 NOP poIL, 
only 17 per cent of Exmoor 
residents approve of stag hunting, 
with 55 per cent being opposed; 58 
per cent of Exmoor farmers do not 
approve. If the claims of hum 
supporters are true - that a 
minority’ of formers is prepared to 
decimate. the red deer herd — then 
the majority of Exmoor people 
and the County Council through 
' its police authority, will be free to 
ask the police to severely restrict 
the issue of guns in the area. 


For our part, we are more than 
willing to help initiate, participate 
in, and contribute ta the forma- 
tion of a locally based deer 
management body which could 
consist of fanning and forestry 
interests, conservationists, local 
authorities, the police and animal 
protection interests. Such a body, 
uncorrupted by hunting interests 
and with its own appointed stalk- 
ers. would ensure that the unique 
herds of red deer in Devon and 
Somerset are properly and hu- 
manely managed, as well as 
protected from poachers and other 
deer persecutors. 

Yours faithfully.

ON THIS DAY 


JUNE a 1946 

Juan Domingo Peron (1895-1374) 
was elected President of 
Argentina in 1946 end re-elected 
in J95J. In 1955 he was deposed in 
a coup d'etat and found exile in 
Spain. He was allowed to return to 
Argentina in 1972 and became 

President for the third time m 
1973. Age and ill health precluded 
am hope of a successful term of 
office and he died after serving 
fess than a year. During his first 
presidency his wife, popularly 
known as Evita, was his ally; 
together they formulated policy 
ana supervised its execution. She 
died in J952 at the age of 30. 


GENERAL PERON'S 
INAUGURATION 


BRIGHT OUTLOOK 
IN ARGENTINA 


FRIENDSHIP WITH 
U.K. 

From Our Own 

Correspondent 
BUENOS AIRES, Jane 4 
Amid expressions of good will from 
all nations and" the delirious enthu- 
siasm of his own contrymen. 
General Juan Domingo Per6n 
Argentina's supreme charmer, 
whose magnetism is felt alike by 
crowds and individuals, was to-day 
inaugurated as Argentine Presi- 
dent for a six-year period ending in 
1952. 

Special precautions were taken 
to protect General Peron against 
the excessive exuberance and en- 
thusiasm of his devoted adherents 
as he and the new Vice-President, 
Dr. J. Hortensio Quijano, after 
taking the oath before the Legisla- 
tive Assembly, motored from the 
House of Congress to Government 
House through streets lined with 
troops, marines, sailors, and 
airmen. 

Immense crowds, largely com- 
posed of General Peron's working 
class supporters, filled the streets 
adjoining the route as processions 
converged from all directions, car- 
rying banners and shouting 
Perdnista slogans. . 

NO VENGEANCE 
In a message read before the 
National Assembly. General Perm] 
said that never again would anyone 
be allowed to injure Argentina by 
exploiting the working class. The 
people’s triumph should not cause 
alarm, but social justice would be 
brought to the doors of every 
proletarian home. No legitimate 
right, however, would be preju- 
diced, and there would be no spirit 
of vengeance. The principle of the 
Perdnista Government would be 
at home, absolute respect for 
Argentine traditions and institu- 
tions, and economic benefits for 
all; abroad, firm, unshakable and 
uncompromising maintenance of 
Argentine sovereignty, and respect 
for foreign undertakings. " Private 
capital would be respected, provid- 
ed that it did not attempt economic 
domination. 

The most significant point in 
General Peron's message was his 
implication that Argentina's ac- 
ceptance of the pan-American 
political and economic agreements 
of Chapultepec and San Francisco 
might not be ratified by the 
Argentine Congress if it was found 
that they conflicted with the 
Argentine constitution. 

General Peron's Presidenty is 
beginning und e r singularly happy 
auguries. Argentina is prosperous 
and rich, and her relations with the 
leading foreign Powers are much 
better than they have been for a 
long time. The acute and prolonged 
tension between Argentina and the 
United States, which culminated 
while Mr. SpruiUe Braden was 
American Ambassador to Argenti- 
na last year, has subsided, at least 
temporarily, and the possibility of j 
a new pan-American era has been 
opened with the recent arrival in 
Buenos Aires of the new United 
States Amabassador, Mr. George 
Messersmith. 

Great Britain has special reason 
to watch keenly General Peron's 
first months in office, since the 
agreement covering Anglo-Argen- 
tine trade has already lapsed, and 
the Mitre Law governing British- 
owned Argentine railways will 
lapse at the end of this year, and 
new bases must soon be laid for 
future Anglo-Argentine economic 
cooperation. General Peron is 
known to be especially well dis- 
posed to Britain and most anxious 
to conclude an all-round treaty of 
trade and friendship resembling 
the Anglo- Argentine treaty of 
friendship, navigation, and trade of 
the year 1825. 


On the verge 

From Mrs J. W. HaHewell 
Sir, It is ironic that, at the 
beginning of the widely publicised 
“Fanning and countryside" week, 
I saw two form machines out this 
morning shaving our local road- 
side verges just as the cow parsley 
is in full flower. As a result the 
verges, like the fields now de- 
nuded of hedges, are becoming 
green deserts. 

Yours faithfully.

that he is quite wrong in believing- 
lhal “the humble dandelion 
chooses to grow in greatest 
profusion” on the grass verge of 
roads. 1 have daily evidence that 
its favourite breeding ground is

~K SPECIAL REPORT ON 
SMALL BUSINESSES/1 


THE 



TIMES 





June 5, 1986 




A s the politicians 
hum for job-genera- 
tion activities, 
small businesses, 
once mere bit play- 
ers on the .national economic 
stage, find themselves, with 
juvenile leads. 

With a large role invested in 
them, they have acquired 
bigger voices. The Govern- 
ment has brought in more 
than 1(X) measures intended to 
help the small businessman, 
but is hardly being showered 
with bouquets. 

John Cochrane, national 
chairman of the Association of 
Independent Businesses 
(AIB), in his annual report, 
commented: “One hundred 
new measures to businessmen 
already over-burdened with 
government administration is 
like offering a tray of drinks to 
a drowning man in case he is 
thirsty.” 

The harsh protest is partly 
because the increased respon- 
sibility has carried with it 
extra burdens. Smalt burin ess- 
es complain that in the 
Government’s drive to pro- 
mote business start-ups, it is 
the existing businesses that 
have suffered by inequality of 
treatment. 

But for all the complaints, 
and there are many, it is clear 
that small businesses have 
made a significant contribu- 
tion to job-creation. The 
Small Business Research 
Trust in a recent report esti- 
mated that the sector — de- 
fined broadly as companies 
with fewer than 100 staff— has 
created between 800,000 and 
1,1 00,000 jobs over the last six 
years. 

David Owen, leader of the 
Social Democrats, referring to 
the trust's figures, has calculat- 
ed that unemployment today 
would be 25 per cent higher 




’ were it not for jobs created by 
small enterprises. 

He has also taken up the 
argument, voiced the AIB, 
that most of the 
Government's initiatives 
have been aimed at starting 
businesses an d helping limited 
companies. The Alliance 
would give more attention to 
existing private businesses 
and the self-employed. 

The Labour Party, taking 
the wide view in its economic 
policy, has yet to examine the 
situation at a snail-business 
level. 

For its part, the Govern- 
ment, despite the criticisms, 
continues to -adopt measures 
to encourage the entrepreneur. 
In the last Budget, the busi- 
ness expansion scheme (BES), 
which was due to expire next 
year, was extended indefinite- 
ly and the loan guarantee 
scheme was not only extended 
for a further three years but 
the interest premium on the 
70 per cent guarantee was 
halved to 2.5 per cent. 

In an economic climate 
where the unemployment rate 
is remaining unacceptably 
high, the Government has 
turned -increasingly to nnail 
businesses as job-creators. 
The problem it feces was 
summed up by David 
Trippier. the small firms min- 
ister. He has commented: “I 
still cannot see that large firms 
will increase their share of the 
labour market Last year, ID 
had the highest profit s that 
any UK company had made 
and it is stiff shedding labour”. 

It is a view shared by the 
Alliance parties. An SDP in- 
dustrial policy document talks 
of a situation “in which there 
is little prospect of a signifi- 
cant increase in employment 
in large enterprises in either 
the private or public sector. "It 
adds that “encouragement of 



Sweet profits and rapid growth for The Body Shop after finding the right market 


the development and creation 
of new small businesses offers 
the most realistic hope in the 
short term for increasing 
employment”. 

The most significant indica- 
tion of the importance the 
Government places in the 
small business person, per- 
haps, was the decision, taken 
■at the time of the Cabinet 
reshuffle last autumn, to move 
control for small businesses 
and enterprise away from the 
Department of Trade and 
Industry — where interest 
seemed to be languishing at 
the highest levels m the de- 
partment — to the Department 
of Employment, under Lord 
Young. 

Politicians have seen the 
Chancellor of the Excheq uer 
to be more generous, as evi- 
dent in his last Budget, to 
small businesses since the 
switch. It is also clear that 
greater efforts are being made 
to improve the general admin- 
istrative and legislative cli- 
mate to reduce the 
bureaucratic burdens. 

A CBI survey last February 
revealed that more than 50 per 


cent of bills to small firms are 
paid late, increasing their 
costs, creating cash-flow prob- 
lems and taking up valuable 
management time. 

The Government is under 
pressure to introduce mea- 
sures similar to those in 
France, West Germany and 
Italy, where small businesses 
can press for a statutory right 

The entrepreneur 
. is still encouraged 

to interest payments on un- 
paid commercial debts, after a 
specified period. One of its 
backbenchers, Richard 
Ottawa y, has introduced a 
Private Members* Bill de- 
manding just that, and it is to 
get a second reading next 
month. 

A paper produced by the 
National Federation of Self- 
Employed and Small Busi- 
nesses listed 39 recent 
government actions which 
had made their members' 
lives more complicated. 

The White Paper, Lifting 
the Burden, produced last 


July, was aimed specifically at 
reducing unnecessary paper- 
work for all types of compa- 
nies. but with heavy emphasis 
on small businesses. It was 
seen as a high point and led to 
the formation of an anti-red 
tape task force within the 
Enterprise and Deregulation 
Unit 

Modelled on the US Office 
of Management and Budget, it 
monitors new legislation to 
attempt to limit costs imposed 
on businesses. Though minis- 
ters say it is too early yet to 
monitor its success, there are 
many in business who believe 
it is having to fight an uphill 
battle with constant new mea- 
sures. Two examples given are 
the Data Protection Act and 
the Statutory Sick Pay 
Scheme, which transfers re- 
sponsibility to employers. 

But it is a battle which pales 
before the larger one politi- 
cians face in regenerating Brit- 
ish industry and commerce 
and to which small business is 
being given an ever-increasing 
important role.

Is the venture capital 
boom starting to fade? 


Venture capital has been one 
of the most fashionable finan- 
cial growth areas of recent 
years. Propelled by a combi- 
nation of political backing, 
unemployment, technological 
change and example from 
across the Atlantic, venture 
capital has attained not only 
respectability but an influence 
unthinkable five years ago. 

According to the latest fig- 
ures from Venture Economics, 
the leading source of venture 
capital statistics, some £278 
million was raised by venture 
capital companies last year, 
compared with £232 million 
in 1984. 

This brings the total since 
1979 to more than £1 billion. 
The full amount is rather 
more because these figures 
exclude “captive firms” such 
as the Prudential's Pruventure 
which are pan of bigger 
groups. 

Equally important are the 
sums invested. There is no 
necessary correlation between 
cash raised and cash invested 
in any one year. But Venture 
Economics calculates that ju 
1985 venture capital invest- 
ment in Britain came to S326 
million, including money 
from captive funds and from 
the US. 

Yet the number of compa- 
nies financed was roughly the 
same at 715. The figures for 
cash raised, moreover, are a 
trifle misleading because they 
incorporate £75 million for 
the Schroder Buyout Fund 
launched last year. If that is 
left out. the amount raised 
slips to £203 million, notice- 
ably less than in 1984. 

The investment figures also 

iiig’of^li, which asufritain’s 
biggest venture capital agency 
invests about £100 million 
annually through a variety of 
channels. Similarly, if Ameri- 
can companies are dropped 
from the list the number of 
new ventures receiving British 
investment fells to below 600. 

Put this way, there are signs 
that the venture capital boom 
is slowing down, in Britain at 
least 


Consumer related business- 
es (retailing, restaurants, pro- 
fessional services and so on) 
took the biggest share at 22 per 
cent, while computer related 
had 1 7 per cent and the third 
biggest, other electronics, ac- 
counted for 1 1 per cent These 
percentages have not altered 
significantly for a couple of 
years. 

Another sign of the slow- 
down is that the number of 
venture capital organizations 
is not growing so quickly. The 
exact number depends on 
what one classifies as a ven- 
ture capital firm. But the 
number is definitely over 1 00, 
ranging in size from the likes 
of 3i to small regional outfits 
such as the Avon Enterprise 
Group, which specializes in 
investments of less than 
£1 50,000 in the west country. 

In the same vein, there are 
funds which concentrate on 

Climate for finance 
is growing harsher 

particular sectors, notably in 
science and technology which 
has been the Hollywood of 
venture capital. 

All this may appear a rich 
cornucopia for the small busi- 
ness. And it is true that very 
small businesses can raise 
money from venture capital 
firms. Some funds win put in 
as little as £5,000, although 
most would prefer to start at 
nearer £50,000. Unfortunately 
the climate for financing small 
concerns with venture capital 
is growing harsher. 

One important and easily 
overlooked reason is the 
health of the equity market. 
The crucial point about ven- 
ture capital is that it is 
generally equity finance. This 
means that the investors put 
up cash in the expectation that 
before long there will be a 
market in which they can 
realize their gains. 

For small businesses backed 
by venture capital that mar- 
ket, in this country and in the 
US. has been the Over-the- 


counter market. The OTC 
market is an informal listing 
of companies whose shares are 
traded on screens directly 
between stockbrokers’ offices. 
It avoids the higher costs and 
stiffer listing requirements of 
recognized exchanges. 

But recently the OTC mar- 
ket has been faltering, for 
much the same reason that its 
bigger cousins have suffered 
doubts after prolonged expan- 
sion. That in turn has caused 
venture capital firms to be 
more wary about what is 
already a highly risk 
undertaking. 

This hesitation has also 
been encouraged by the fact 
that the explosion of venture 
capital investment in recent 
years has bred among its 
successfully launched compa- 
nies a need for second round 
financing for continued 
growth. 

it is therefore tempting for 
many venture capital firms to 
favour existing “new” busi- 
nesses over brand new ones. 
But it does not mean that 
venture capital for the aspiring 
or just started businessman is 
drying up — simply that even 
belter business plans and 
more persuasion are now 
needed. 

For the entrepreneur seek- 
ing finance, venture capital is 
suit attractive because it is far 
cheaper than loan capital. 
Against that, the businessman 
who wants his own company, 
must accept that a venture 
capital shareholder compro- 
mises his independence. 

The same applies to the 
established company which 
decides to go to the OTC. 
Most stockbrokers and quite a 
few venture capital compa- 
nies, as well as the OTC 
specialists such as Harvard 
Securities, will prepare a com- 
pany for the market. But for 
the business which needs extra 
finance the OTC offers a 
cheap and fast method of 
realizing his assets.

A white knight rides again 


As with a number of this 
vjovenuncnt's schemes to aid 
small businesses, the business 
«an-up scheme (BSS) and the 
expansion scheme 
(BES) were heralded as white* 
knight rescuers of the dis- 
tressed and capital-starved 
small business. 

Unfortunately, the reality 
has' not lived up to the 
expectation. But changes in- 
troduced in this year's Fi- 
nance Bill may see the BES 
back on its original track as 
supplier of finance to the 
small business. 

The BES is a broader ver- 
-sion of the BSS which had a 
brief and unhappy two-year 
existence. Introduced in 1981, 
the BSS proved overly restric- 
tive; and according to the 
limited statistics that have 
emerged, had a high casualty 
rate in terms of failed BSS- 
‘ backed companies. 

The BES, unlike its prede- 
cessor is not limited to start- 
ups. Its cleverness, in theory at 
least, lay in the very -generous 
lax breaks it gave investors. 

BES investors can obtain 


their shares for at least five 
years, with a tax “clawback" 
For those disposing of their 
shares earlier. 

Unfortunately the scheme 
was abused from early on. 
right up until this year's 
Budget. Basically. the Govern- 
ment was given a fairly com- 
prehensive drubbing over a 
two year period by so-called 
BES sponsors. 

In essence it was quickly 
realized that the definitions of 


between them accounted for 
only £7 million of the £105 
million raised in this year 
under the BES. The next band, 
investments from £50,000 up 
to £100,000 also accounted for 
only £7 million. The BES bad

bigger fish. 


cent of its resources in land or 
buildings. 

Second, the Finance Bill 
stipulates that the definition 
of what counts as a qualifying 
trade can now be altered by 
statutory instrument . 

On the day of the Budget 
when hew changes to the BES

draughtsmen were again out- ment also released a detailed

fairly safe, low risk types of

Farming companies were 
the first example of this — and 
illustrate how quickly the 
roots of the BES in small 
business finance have been 
ripped out and replaced by 
something uneriy different.

of up to £40.000 in any one 
year. For a 60 per cent tax 
payer this could mean that a 
£40,000 investment would 
cost only £16,000. 

Investors had to hold on to 


figures show that 388 compa- 
nies came into this category, 
representing 54 per cent of the 
total number of companies 
raising BES finance. 

However, these companies 


mem was banished in last 
year’s Budget. Fine wine, an- 
tiques, hotels, pubs, central 
London restaurants, nursing 
homes replaced them merrily 
taking the BES yet further 
from its origins. 

This year the Government 
got wise. Instead of curbing 
particular trades it did two 
things which may at last help 
the BES find itself. First it 
effectively barred heavy asset

companies surveyed could not - 
have raised any alternative 
finance in the absence of 
BES”. In addition, 36 per cent 
of the companies in the sam- 
ple raised £50,000 or less. 

So there clearly was some 
benefit to the smaller compa- 
nies. This is however subject 
to the caveat that the raising of 
small amounts of money 
does not necessarily mean that 
the recipients themselves were 
small businesses. 

This was explicitly recog-

which pointed out that “20 per

finance. The report also high- 
lighted that the BES bad not 
contributed a great deal to the 
provision of start-up capital. 

“BES has not been a signifi- 
cant source of seedcom 
capital," the PMM report 
slates, adding that “in contrast 
BES has been used predomi- 


- nantly to provide working 
capital to companies suffering 
liquidity crises and seeking to 
expand, and companies seek- 
ing to finance the purchase of 
existing businesses.” - 
Whether the Budget will' 
actually mean more money for 
small or start up businesses; 
remains to be seen. There are 
other problems which need 
addressing, such as the ex-; 
pense of raising BES money.

Many small businesses foil 
because they do not have 
access to good advisers. As 
centres of management, wis- 
dom. the business schools are 
befog swept' imd foe small 
business movement in. two 
ways. 

Most visible are ihc speria l- 
ist courses that an increasing 
number of schools are running 
. in conjunction with the Man- 
power Services Commission 
a nH other authorities aimed at 
encouraging students to start 
their own companies. 

But - equally if not more 
important is foe “entrepre- 
neurial, dimension” being in- 
jected 'into the standard 
curriculum for all managers. 
This applies as much to small 
businesses as tp the buy-outs 
and profit centra which large 
co rporati ons are in the process 
of introducing. 

Peter' Moore, principal of 
foe London Business School, 
describes foe currem require- 
■ ment as that for foe schools to 
develop “a new kind of .man- ; 
ager who welcomes risk and 
takes a broader, more human- 
istic view of the corporation.” 

. ’ Most of the 145,000 gradu- 
ates in the UK opt to work for 
large firms, for the public 
sector or to enterthe profes- 
sions. A mere 500 set up their 
own businesses. 


Manchester Business 
School, which is the LBS'S 
site number as one of foe 

of foe umversity4inked 

business schools, has a special 
■email business development 
unit which aims to givepracti- 
cal help to all types -of 


entrepreneur. 


The unit's involvement . 
ranges from attaching unem- 
ployed mature, executives to 
small “host” . companies to 
teach the proprietors of estab- 
lished small and medium-size 
firms about business subjects 
such as the management of 
money - and where to get it 
and cash-flow. 

Individuals - who have a! 


ready been helped include a 
man who wanted to start a do- 
ir-yourself garage. - another 
who has established p home 
for the aged, a woman who 
now manages a highly recom- 
mended ethnic food centre 
and foe Irishman who is 
flourishing with his natural 
yoghurt and quality icecream 
centre 

Each -of foe business schools 
has tailored its response to foe 
small business call in foe way . 
that fits in best .with ita'own 
existing culture and expertise. 

At Henley, foe Management 
College, a new general man- 
agement course has been de- 
signed specifically to meet the 
requirements of practising 
managers who cannot be 
spared from their jobs for 
more than one week at a time. 

The new Henley course: is 
'designed for all types of mid- 
career executives*, not- just key 
managers in big firms. 

One of foe first participants 
was Richard Horton, aged 39, 
managing director of Accord 
Publications, a greetings-card 
publishing company employ- 
ing 130-odd people. Accord is 
logo public soon. . 

-In addition to applying 
directly to bis own business 
some of the ideas be learned, 
Mr Horton .says that taking 
the course has given him foe 
self-confidence to handle a 
Stock " Exchange flotation. 
Gan field started a pro- 
gramme to help 40 new gradu- 
ates start business ventures in 
1985. This year foe pro- 
gramme was expanded to 70 
with a farther 30 places fielded 
to - both . Durham . Business

They can to? not only into a 
ready-made market but also to 
tested methods of admhristra- 
tion, framing and expertise — 
the existence of a head office 
only a phone call away can be 
particularly helpfbj for people 
■uiring the transition to sdf- 
empfoymeut for the first tune. 

One of the reasons the 


banks like franchises so much 


is that foe rfck of failure is 


statistically much less than 
with small businesses in 


general. 


But equally, the continuing 
royalty payments Incorporated 
in most franchise contracts 


mean that foe gains are less 
than those retained by sole 
traders. 


Usually these are based 
other on a percentage of 
turnover or a surcharge on the 
cost of the bask supplies. 


These continuing contracte- 
al royalty payments charged in 
addition to the initial lamp, 
sum “entry" fee can become a 
considerable irritant to the 
franchisee once foe business 
has been established. 


The franchisor is the manu- 
facturer, wholesaler or retailer 
nr other type of organization 
which grants the trademark 
and business methods. The 
franchisee is the independent 
trader who accepts the work- 
ing principles of the 
franchisor. . 

A variety erf factors has 
contributed to the recent 
boom. A political dimate 
which encourag ed more people 
to seek self-employment 
helped. Rising boose prices 
together with tump-sum pay- 
ments for redundancy and 
early-retirement injected 
much of. tee necessary capital 
for “entry" charges, to fran- 
chise schemes. 

But foe development would 
probably not hare won so 
ranch acceptance without the 


deaning ®pT and .standard 
setting work of foe British 
Franchise Assochttion. 

Companies applying for 
membership me subjected to 
-de tailed screening, which cov- 
ers a complete check of the 
financial background, an ex- 
amination of legal agreements 
with franchisees and whether 
or not successful pilot is 
already operating. 

There are two grades of 
membership. Fnfl members of 
BFA are required to hare 
operated - a successful pflot 
scheme for one year and hare 
at least fonr franchisees, two 
of whom must have been 
frandrising for -two years* 
Bum urn. 

There is also a register of 
qualified associates who are 
required to have operated a 
successful pilot scheme foroae 
year and to hare at least one 
franchise who has been trad- 
ing for a year. 

Though around 80 compa- 
nies hare now joined foe BFA, 
it has been an uphill struggle 
towin support from companies 
. for .such a rigorous retting 
structure. 


The sum needed to buy a 
stake in a franchise scheme 
varies enormously. Examples 
culled from foe franchise ta- 
bles published each month by 
Business Success magazine 
range" upwards from about 
£3,000 from a service trade 
such as removals or electrical 
contracting to £125,000 for a 
pizza restaurant. 

Normally foe banks like the 
franchisee to contribute at 
least 30 per cent of foe total 
cost of the project, birth' to 
ensure commitment and a 
sensible borrowing ratio,

This is a watershed year for local 
enterprise agencies which in little 
more than five years have grown 
from a handful to well over 300. 
Typically they have been launched 
with support from local companies, 
local authorities and other commer- 
cial interests such as the banks. The 
aim is to help new and struggling 
small businesses in creating new jobs. 

- Help through secondment of exec- 
utives from many of the supporting 
organizations has been another typi- 
cal feature. 1 

- The main expansion phase for the 
agencies is now over. Virtually aH key 
areas of the country axe now covered 
by an agency which is reasonably near 
at hand. More solid cash support is 
injecting greater stability into the 
agency network. A new phase has also 
started in the improving of agencies* 
services to small businesses. 

Loiti .Carr, chairman of Business in 
the Community (BIO, which is the 
-national umbrella body tor the enter- 
prise agencies, said recently: “Al- 
though many agencies are still in their 
infancy— and most agencies, even the 
well established ones, are restricted 
by lack of cash and staff — they are be- 
ginning to make a very significant 
impact on the rate of business start- 
ups, business survivals and 
soundly based job creation.” 

But he' believes there is a great deal 
of support for tackling more ambi- 
tious objectives. 

It has been touch and go for some 
agencies straggling to make ends meet 
but so fir none has been forced to 
shut its doors. There are now 336, 
according - to the Department of 
Employment. 

' There are 38 agencies in the greater 
London area alone with a further 60 
in the South East The North West 


The action W; [M 
men who WM&Mb 


make the 
new jobs 

has grown 57 of them. As well as 
offering counselling aid, some agen- 
cies also take a hand in helping 
provide start-up premises such as 
workshops and offices; often with 
shared services and sympathetic day- 
to-day advice. 

The London Enterprise Agency 
(LEnTA)' in 1980 was a pioneer of 
business marriage bureaux which aim 
to match local investors with entre- 
preneurs needing risk capital. There 
are now eight offering this service, tire 
others being Aberdeen Enterprise 
Trust, Cambridge Enterprise Agency, 
Colchester Business Emeprise Agen- 
cy, Leeds Business Venture, Man- 
chester Business Venture, Milton 
Keynes Business Venture and West 
Glamorgan Enterprise Trust. 

The latest plan is to set up a 
national network of bureaux. 




small business candidates which 
could gain from the experimental 
venture capital scheme backed with 
£1 million by the Rank Xerox 
pension fund. The idea is to offer up 
to £50,000 in risk capital to business- 
es which would otherwise be unable 
to raise such funding which is on too 
small a scale for most venture capital 
enganizations. 




Lord Cam "Significant impact* 

The two agencies are IEnTA, which 
has so fir organized one investment 
under the scheme, and Tyne and 
Wear Enterprise Trust (Entrust) 
based m Newcastle upon Tyne. 

Entrust, operating in an area with 
some of the toughest unemployment 
problems in Britain, has been in- 
volved with other loan funds includ- 
ing Calor Gas. which helped 16 
businesses through Entrust last year, 
and NCB Enterprises that aided 
another 20. 

Last year Entrust fielded 7,888 
inquiries at five offices around the 
region, with the conversion rate to 
actual start-ups remaining compara- 
tively low at 4 per cent. But the 
anticipated 350 new ventures are 
expected to create more than 1,500 
jobs. 

Entrust has had substantia] backing 
from the European Social Fund 
because of tbe scale of North East 
problems but other agencies find it 
tough going to raise enough cash to 
mount an effective service. A five- 
year Government scheme announced 
at the end of last year is intended to 
help such agencies. - 

In the first two years ibere is £2.5 
million available which can go to 
agencies with less than £60.000

funding. Up to £20,000 in Govern- 
ment grant is on offer on a pound-for- 
pound basis according to how much 
other cash support can be raised from 
local backers. 

The scheme began operation in 
April and already 60 applications 
have come in from agencies around 
the country. 

Mr Trippier believes that the 
scheme by establishing agencies more 
firmly, will encourage consolidation 
of support from local backers. BTC tor 
its part has set a target for at least an- 
other £5 million to be raised from 
private sector sponsorship this year. 
It would like to see total aid of all 
kinds go to £30 million this year 
against £21 million in 1985and£12J> 
million in 1984. 

Already 4,000 companies sponsor 
enterprise agencies, according to BIC 
which estimates that the number of 
sponsors grew by half in 12 months to 
May last year. 

BIC surveys show that the agencies 
are helping create more than 50,000 
jobs a year through start-ups and are 
helping save another 25,000 jobs m 
assisting existing small businesses. 
The agencies have a hand in the 
creation of about 20,000 new busi- 
nesses a year, BIC estimates. 

More agencies are reacting to 
special needs in a community. Two 
recent launches to help ethnic minor- 
ities, partly funded by Home Office

Royal Society of 
Chemistry awards 

At a ceremony at the Royal 
Society of Chemistry's bead- 
quarters at Burlington House, 

Piccadilly, last night the Presi- 
dent of the society, Professor 
R.O.C Norman, presented the 
following awards: 


Mrs Grace Wyndham 
Goldie, OBE. who pioneered 
the handling of politics and 
other controversy on televi- 
sion. and who developed it 
with courage and candour, 

died in London on Jane 3, 
aged 86. 

Grace Goldie started politi- 
cal and current affairs pro- 
grammes on television in 
1948. From the outset BBC 
control of such programmes 
was met by political leaders 
with reluctance and suspicion. 

The period from that until 
Mrs Gokfie retired in I96S 
was one of increasing vigi- 
: lance and mounting tension. 

Attractive, articulate, at 
ease with journalists as well as 
with public figures, she was 
always ready in talks, inter- 
views, and articles to malm 
dear her own convictions. She 
was more than once called 
“the First Lady of 
Television”. 

Grace Murrell NIsbet was 
born al Arisaig, Inverness- 
shire on March 26. 1900. Her 
father was a civil engineer 
whose work took him to 
Egypt, and she began her 
schooling at the Bench Con- 
vent ofNotre Dame de Sion in 
Alexandria. 

Later sbe went to Chelten- 
ham Ladies College, to Bristol 
University, where sbe gained 
first-class honours in modem 
history, and to Somerville 
College, Oxford (second-class 
honours in PPE)l 

From 1928 to 1934 she lived 
in Liverpool, being employed 
as a play reader for the 
Liverpool Repertory Theatre, 
a WEA lecturer on drama' in 
various north-western towns, 
such as Birkenhead, Warring- 
ton, and Widnes; and as an 
examiner in history for the 
Northern Universities Joint 
Board It was at the Liverpool 
.Repertory that she met her 
foture husband, Frank Wynd- 
ham Goldie. 

Mis Goldie came to Lon- 
don in 1934, and for the next 
seven years wrote for The 





Listener as dramatic and en- 
tertainments critic Her con- 
nection with television 
therefore went back to its 
earliest days in 1936, when toe 
Baird and Marconi systems 
were still in rivalry. 

After a brief spell (1942-44) 
with the Board of Trade she 
joined toe BBC staff as aTalks 
producer in 1944. - 

Quickly establishing her 
ability to cope with major 
projects. Mis Goldie produced 
some historic series of BBC 
talks, among them a series on 
atomic energy in 1947, and 
“Challenge of our Time” in 
1948. 

As soon as television was 

restarted alia- the war, she was 

anxious to join the new ser- 
vice; in that latter year she did 
so. She was sure it had a future 

in public affairs as well as in 
entertainment. 

She produced toe first party 
political and election broad- 
casts. It was a testing experi- 
ence. Many in the top ranks of 

politicans were shy of toe new 
rn priinm particularly as its 
national coverage had not 
then been established. 

She designed what became 
the pattern for general election 
nights on BBC television, and 
supervised these programmes 
in the 1950, 1951, 1955 and 
- 1959 general elections. 


Direct political broadcast- 
ing was only a part of her 

responsibilities. Such wefl- 

known programmes as Press 
Conference. TanighL Foreign 
Correspon dent, and Monitor 
were also started and nut by 
her. Sbe helped to establish 
Panorama in the 1950s and 
went on ' to design the 
consumers' programme. 
Choice. 

As important as the pro- 
grammes themselves was the 
leam Mrs Goldie assembled to 
produce them. Some of tbe 
outrtandmgmen of the second 
generation of television pro- 
ducers, Huw Whefdon, Mi- 
chael Peacock, Donald 
Baverstock. and AJasdatr 
Milne, were among her asso- 
ciates. 

in 1954 she v/as appointed 
assistant of Talks in the 

BBC television service, and 
became Head of Talks and 
Current Affoiis, Television, in 
May 1962. Sie retired in June 
1965. 

Tboughoui her career Mrs 
-Goldie fought for television's 
independence from pressure 
groups, political and other- 
wise. After she had retired she 
Wrote as a champion and 
candid critic of tdevisfon. 

She insisted thai a firm 
distinction should be made 
between, foctnal programmes 
and documentaries . - that 
verged on fiction. She was 
against television producers 
taking part in political 
activities. 

In 1 977 die had published a 
much praised book. Facing 
the Nation: Television and 
Politics 1936 - 1976 , dealing 
with The growth of television 
and showing how she became 
tbe ecumenist of broadcasting 
and politics. 

Grace Wyndham Goldie 
was an un thing campaigner. 
On occasions she had to fight 
opposition inride the BBC as 
well.as that from outside. She 
had a charm and earnestness 
that 'were, difficult to 
withstand.' • 


MR JOHN GILMOUR 


Mr John Gflmour, FLS, 
Director of the University 
Botanic Garden, Cambridge, 
from 1951-73, and an author- 
ity on {riant classification, died 
on June 3, aged 79. 

John Scott Lennox Gflmour 
went up to Qare College, 
Cambridge, in 1925 from 
Uppingham, already a keen 
field botanist familiar with a 
wide range of British plants. 

After taking Fart H of the 
Tripos he was appointed by 
Professor Seward to toe Cura-

secondment during the war to 
the Petroleum Division of the 
Ministry of Fuel and Power, 
he became Director of the 
Royal Horticultural Society's 
Garden, Wisley, in 1946, 
moving to Cambridge in 1951 
as Director of the University 
Botanic Garden.

him valuable as a chairman,

She bad always been adapt- 
able in a variety of parts 
between light comedy, Shaw 
and Shakespeare. She had, in 
particular, physical grace that 
aided her in period work, a 
direct emotional quality and a 
lucid voice that could takeber, 
untiring, through a complex 
speech. 

Descended from the poet’s 
family, toe was born in Dar- 

« India, on December 
9, the daughter of Sir 
John Coleridge, and educated

Television 

All in a 
lather 
at junk 


and soap 

Wh en fiK American journalist 
Loyd Grossman first vfeted 
these shores in 1972 ite ms 
started- to discover that his 
coant rymen were “meant to he 

stupid and rude and noisy” —a 
shock parallel to that in store 
tor the young F-n giteinw jg 
France who fisads Mmsrif ex- 
pected to evince coldness, 
reserve and a lack of interest 
in the table. 

Mr Grossman has since 
overcome this initial disquiet 
to the extent of permanent 
residence, marriage to an En- 
glishwoman and malting hig ; 
name with flat qufotsseatially 
English magazine Harpers & 
Quern. -j 

His hrief in Diverse Reports 
(Channel 4) was to test the 
water of the con front ng anti- 
American grofmdswen which 
may be summed op in file term 
“cultural snobbery”. 

To this end he quizzed a 
dutch of academics (fedifc, 
naturally, Professor Lanne 
Taylor); Margaret, Duchess of 
Artorli (star of the forthcoming 
soap Legacy); the American 
restaurateur ami Anglophile 
Bob Payton (dressed for the 
occasion in an tmasually re- 
strained shirt); and had him- 
self filmed . ditching a 
McDonalds hamburger (“the 
Model T of fast food”) into a 
litter Inn. Was Britain, won- 
dered Mr Grossman, under 
threat from American joule? 

Given that nil Ms subjects 
seemed to share his own 
dismay that America’s more 
successful cult u ra l exports 
should ever be brapded: “me- 
dia imperialism", the answer 
was only briefly, in doubt: 
soaps are f!n& fost food is fine, 
rock V roll is fine. 

It would surely have en- 
hanced the possibility for de- 
bate, and would-certafaly have 
provided more emertafnment, 
if at least one voice had been 
raised against the cosy drift of 
Mr Grossman's dtpne: there 
are plenty of articulate and 
informed observers: mi both 
sides of die Atlantic who . 
perceive that Kg Macs and . 
Dynasty are the surface deco- 
ration of a gaudy baflooa kept 
aloft with' the gas of moral 
vacuity. 

In holding this truth to be 
setf-evfdent, one is not ex- 
pressing “anti-Americanism" 
any more than a Roman dthsen 
of the fifth century AJ>. could 
have been accused of “anti- 
Hunism*': one is simply, deep- 
ly, sensibly frightened. Aad in 
foe present climate, -pro- 
grammes such as this (howev- 
er reasonable 'their tone) 
become through omission an 
oblique form of propaganda.

Goodall (loft) with Joan Cross and the late Sir Peter Pears photographed exactly 
a year ago at foe Old MIU, Snape 


Since 1945, few British musi- 
cians have achieved recogni- 
tion as an “institution”; 
Reginald Goodall is one of 
these. His place has not been 
easily won, though the quali- 
ties which gained it have in a 
way been there since he first 
lifted a baton at the Royal 
College of Music nearer 60 
than 50 years ago. Facility, 
stick technique, an ability to 
apply surface gloss — the 
attributes which won a con- 
ductor instant recognition — 
were not his. As I understand 
it. it was composers who most 
appreciated what Reggie did, 
because it was their music be 
conducted rather than his 
interpretation. 

His first break came when 
he joined war-time touring 
Sadler's Writs under the direc- 
tion of Joan Cross, that great 
animator of the British musi- 
cal scene, who brought him 
again to the notice of Benja- 
min Britten, whom be already 
knew from the Royal College 
of Music. He conducted the 
premiere of Peter Grimes on 
the company's return to 
Sadler’s Wells Theatre in June 
1 945, following it with a series 
of performances which have 
become legendary, partly be- 
cause of the work’s immediate 
and disturbing impact, partly 


because its conductor knew 
how to mould the music so 
that certain aspects of it have, 
1 am convinced, never been 
better realized: the measured, 
almost hesitant, pacing of Act 
3's prelude gave it an agonized 
inevitability unequalled even 
in the composer’s own perfor- 
mances, and the cries of 
“Peter Grimes!” in the man 
hum some 15 minutes later, 
pan blood-lust, pan self-con- 
demnatory, never again hit 
the aural solar plexus with 
quire that impact. 

To work with a repertory 
opera company, as was his lot 
after be joined the newly- 
formed Covent Garden Op- 
era, brought out Goodall’s 
qualities mainly as coach or 
mentor, and the plain fact (at 
that time unrecognized) is that 
as a performer he has always 
needed something close to 
Festival conditions. To hear 
him conduct // trovatore or 
Rigofeao, works with which 
he had little sympathy, sug- 
gested little of his latent 
ability, and it was not until he 
took charge of a re-rebearsed 
German-language Walkure on 
tour in the mid-1950s that 
qualities became audible 
which have made him one of 
the major Wagnerians of our 
time.

nally for a private and light-hearted 
competition and saw its first produc-

town in Saxony has be^n translated to~ 
the Pennines, although the period' 
Temainstbe same; facilitating a rather 
meagre sub-tort on the plight of foe 
rural working classes in foe time of 
foe Napoleonic Wars.. . 

• The plot, familiar enough to ~A- 
level students, concerns foe rickeiy 
mechani sm of a petty sessions con- 
vening in.foe local. inn. The presiding 
.worthy,- Adam Keiiworthy J P, is a 
foolish, . venal- man • -in middle life 
whom we first meet in a sorry state— 
a “rough justice” as he judiciously 
has it — with his wig mislaid, his 
dofoes in tatter? and his head 
Moodily bandaged. 

The excuse he offers his tentative, 
bewildered dak is a rank and patent 
fib to do with being tripped by a 
bothersome chamberpot; in foe 
course of the morning's first and only 
hearing, however, it becomes appar- 
ent that his injuries, stem from a 
shameful nocturnal episode.

Bizarre business: from left, Don Crann, John Hatoearf and Kate Williams 


play Kenworthy as a grotesque buf- 
foon with a portfolio of scowls, 
grimaces, twitches and leers which 
Robert Daws, excellently cast as his 
clerk, does well to ride; so carried 
away, indeed, was Mr Crann that he 
was corpsing after ten minutes, and 
topped his digression by leading foe 
prompter stage-centre for a bow. This 
is either amusingly agreeable or 
grossly self-indulgent, depending on 
where one is sitting; its net effect is to 
stretch out an ant-paced stoiyline to 
breaking point 

- Even when foe action gets under 
way with foe arrival of Robert 


Keegan’s pompous visiting M P (the 
only character who divines foe truth 
of the fracas in which foe titular jug 
came to be broken, and who ends by

pains) foe portrait of graial inepti- 
tude and shabby dealing is subverted 
by a ponderous insistence on foe kind 
of buxom pauses and ham reactions 
that sustain foe dreariest situation 
comedies. Philip Hedley*s static pro- 
duction gives foe bizarre impression 
of a Shakespearian sub-plot gone 
mad. 

The thing is not entirely without its 
charms, and there is plenty of scope 


here for a pair of “character” parts 
which are milked for ail they have to 
give: John Halstead as foe decrepit, 
narcoleptic constable, much given to 
nodding off beneath foe hastily 
supplied portrait of His Majesty King 
George III (aptly, a mad monarch) 
and coming to life with bawls of 
“silence in court!”; and Guy Nicholls 
as foe tremulously staggering land- 
lord who keeps foe court well 
liquored. Somehow, however, the 
satire has got lost on foe way.

ECO/Uchida 

Queen Elizabeth

Appropriately, this tenth and 
Iasi concert in MStsuko 
Uchida’s complete' cycle - of 
Mozart's Piano Concertos 
found - room for -the 
composer's first and last'; 
thoughts in foe medium, his 
first ones turning out to be a 
pure delight not unduly over- 
shadowed by later and greater 
things. The Piano Concerto - 
No 5 in D (K1 75) was the first 
of Mozart's concertos to be 
based entirely on his own 
material; this coruscating little ' 


work was written when he was 
jusl~17. : 

Maybe its ideas dp not 
unfold with the fluency of 
Mozart's mature style, but 
they already have an ampli- 
tude and rhythmic pungency 
to which Ufa English Chamber

Uchida’s more • restrained

Finale, but foe ensured that

ty for unaffected phrasing 
were as perfectly suited to the 
B fiat Concerto (K59S) as one 
had imagined they would be. 
Uchida seemed to work a 
succession of unpretentious 
miracles in this performance, 
which drew an ovation from 
the sell-out audience that was 
more than just a retrospective 
response to foe completion of 
the whole cycle. 

Once again foe contrast 
between - foe ECO’s rafoer 
emphatic opening statement 
(in fact they drifted slightly 
sharp) the foe piano’s 
gentle first entry, sounded 
startlingly wide, but it has 
become clear by.now that this 
is bow Uchida views such 
things.

The two Romances Opus 40

Four such Beethoven .sonatas 
as Claudio Arrau played last 
night would have taxed a mao 
half the ape of the pianist who, 
now in his ninth decade, took 
them not so much in his stride 
as into his audience's ego

brothers assume foe personal- 
ities of two imagined sisters. 
As men they are anxious and 
sloppy, as women tense but 
competent. Janet (Tony 
Haase)- is even a touch win- 
some. Barbara (Robin 
Driscoll) has motherly 
yearnings and a chin that 
might one day turn into 
Margaret Rutherford. All four 
speak a working-class argot 
' laced with ornate expressions 
in foe tradition established by 
Orton and Minder. 

The author-actors manage 


experience. “The older 1 get 
the less I feel like retiring”, he 
was quoted as saying three 
years ago, and when it comes 
to hearing such fruits of a 
lifetime's delight in Beetho- 
ven, we may be glad that he is 
both hale and heartwarming. 

His extraordinary breadth 
of character plunged from foe 
early sonatas, as in Op 1 0 No 3 
with hs initial confidence 
turning to grief-laden stabs of 
pain, into the deeper anguish 
of the “Appassionato”, a dark 
night of the spirit (hat never 
the less found its salvation. 
This was a beautifully propor- 
tioned performance, with 
even the long repeat in foe last 
movement taken at full stretch 
to balance the musical 
content. 

The pianist has always 
maintained that each such 
repeat should never be simply 
foe same notes played again.

of mind so clearly reflected in 
foe music were communicated , 
with clarity and candour, the 
eventual sense of rejoicing 
never becoming merely 
flippant.

of Mr Arrau’s insight into 
Beethoven is that be is always

The “Festival conditions” I 
referred to were not available 
until Stephen Aden and Ed- 
mund Tracey of Sadler's 
Wells, greatly perceptive, 
greatly daring, gave him a 
young cast for a new English 
production of The Masters inf- 
ers and months of preparation 
in which to bring them and foe 
orchestra to foe boil. 

What emerged from that 
period of rehearsal was not so 
much brilliant, which would 
have been fine, as totally and 
in every way satisfactory, 
which is even rarer. Nothing 
was left to chance, everyone's 
qualities were brought to the 
fore, their failings gradually 
eliminated, until the 
Gesamikunstwerk Wagner 
dreamt of was before foe 
public. 

Here was no magician wav- 
ing a wand so that everything 
came suddenly right on foe 
night, rafoer an analyst with 
the knowledge and the pa- 
tience to take everything 
apart, foe time and foe will to 
put it together again, and foe 
soul of a poet, so that the 
finished product shone with 
foe composer's light and illu- 
minated foe score as seldom 
before. 

Like many great artists, 
Reggie Goodall has his para- 


doxes. If it is foe Ring and 
Parsifal he aspires to. among 
repertory operas, it is Manon 
and Turanaot he has conduct- 
ed best. 

When he works with sing- 
ers. it is not only fidelity to the 
notes he emphasizes but deaf 
diction and an expressive way 
with words, with the result 
that his singers sing Wagner 
wifo a natural line and a sense 
of legato which would do 
credit to the great students of 
bei canto. 

Over some 20 years, Reggie 
has become an institution and 
set standards in England and 
Wales for Wagnerian perfor- 
mances, for seriousness of 
approach which admits no 
short cuts, and his achieve- 
ment has affected audiences to 
their permanent benefit. 

It is peculiarly fitting that 
his performance of Parsifal 
Act 3 at the Aldeburgh Festi- 
val on Sunday should not only 
stand in its own Wagnerian 
right but should celebrate foe 
85th birthday of one of his 
mentors and one of foe first 
people to recognize his sover- 
eign gifts, Joan Cross. 

This article, in slightly differ- 
ent form, appears in the pro- 
gramme book of the 1986 
Aldeburgh Festival. 


Bath Festival 

More than mere 
words can tell 


New London 
Chamber 
Choir/Wood 
St John's, Bath 

It looked a very odd pro- 
gramme that foe New London 
Chamber Choir was bringing 
to the Bath Festival: Josquin's 
Hercules Dux Ferrariae mass 
and his lament for Ockeghera, 
then a new piece by Mark- 
Anthony Turnage, then 
Messiaen’s Cinq rechants. But 
it turned out to make sense. 

This was all music of virtu- 
osity, showing off foe extraor- 
dinary control of texture, 
rhythm and fine dynamic 
shading foal James Wood and 
his amateur ringers have de- 
veloped together. Also, it was 
all music that left words some 
way behind. 

Messiaen's own sounds and 
phrases are hardly more than 
the vehicle for an incantation, 
and T urn age’s treatment of his 
chosen poem by Steven 
Berkoff is supremely disrup- 
tive. leaving a smoking 
bombrite of tattered pho- 
nemes and loose images. 

Josquin, of course, could 
hardly treat foe mass in foe 
same way, yet what he sets is 
not foe text so much as foe 
idea: the spanning musical 
architecture could equally well 
be supported by different ver- 


bal ideas, just as the same 
ideas could be very variously 
accommodated in foe works 
of Josquin and his 
contemporaries. 

What is special about foe 
Duke Ercole mass, though, is 
its effectiveness in concert 
performance, thanks no doubt 
to its relative brevity but also 
to its calmly exposed con- 
struction. to the fact that, 
perhaps, it was made as much 
for the study as the chance!. 
Sung within foe sympathetic 
acoustic of a Victorian Gothic 
church, this was a perfor- 
mance that managed to be 
both lively and serene. 

Tumage's One Hand in 
Brooklyn Heights is a different 
matter, a work of abrupt 
dislocations as one complex 
texture is changed for another 
or one word is sung in three or 
four different ways at foe same 
time. 

It is glistening splintered 
music, a precarious balance of 
blues progressions and ticking 
automatic devices, scat sing- 
ing and rich, radiant harmony. 
But one needs to bear it all: 
here we had, not altogether 
unsuitably, just two fingers in 
Brooklyn Heights. One awaits 
foe rest keenly, preferably in a 
performance that realizes foe 
composer's dramatic 
intentions.

Wider area was 

contaminated 

by Chernobyl 

From Christopher Walker. Moscow 


More than five weeks after 
the Chernobyl nuclear 
disaster, the official Commu- 
nist Party newspaper Pravda 
revealed for die first lime 
yesterday that contaminated 
areas had been evacuated in 
territory beyond the original 
18-mile exclusion zone 
thrown up around! the stricken 
reactor. 

The report from the Byelo- 
russian capital of Minsk also 
detailed stringent preventive 
measures taken by the 
republic's Government, in- 
cluding the evacuation of 

60.000 children, the closing of 
wells and the asphalting of dirt 
roads from which radioactive 
dust was being blown. 

The paper said that detailed 
examination had shown that 
some parts inside the original 
exclusion zone were “clean", 
while others outside its bor- 
ders had been found to be 
“dirty" or contaminated. 

No indication was given of 
the extent of the extra area of 
Soviet land found to have 
suffered from excessive fall- 
out. 

A total of 9X000 people 
were evacuated from the origi- 
nal zone in the first week after 
the disaster, and a further 

250.000 children subsequently 
evacuated from the region of 
the Ukrainian capital of Kiev 
for the duration of the 
summer. 

Pravda quoted Mr Alexan- 
der Petrov, chairman of the 
Council of Ministers of Byelo- 
russia. as explaining that de- 
tailed checking had enabled 
the authorities to move some 
of the evacuees back into the 
exclusion zone and to evacu- 
ate others from areas outside 
discovered to be “dangerous".

THE TIMES THURSDAY JUNE 5 1986

“fa a word, ui the place of 
emotions, technologically 
complicated, long and ^com- 
plex .work has come," the 
paper reported. 

“Its aim is not to let the 
negative influence of the radi- 
ation affect the health of the 
people." 

All previous reports in the 
official media here have indi- 
cated that no area outside the 
exclusion zone bad been seri- 
ously affected, although 
weather reports indicated that 
the cloud drifted across Byelo- 
russia when it was at its most 
lethal. 

Pravda s account yesterday 
spoke of evacuees leaving the 
southern Gomel region of 
Byelorussia, but was vague 
about the exact area affected. 

Mr N.Mazai. deputy chair- 
man of the ruling Council of 
Ministers of Byelorussia — 
some of which falls into the 
original exclusion zone 
around the crippled plant — 
was quoted as saying that 
60.000 Soviet children had 
been evacuated from the Go- 
mel region as part of “Opera- 
tion Children". 

He said that children under 
three had been evacuated with 
their mothers, those from 
three to six moved away with 
their state-run kindergartens, 
and that the whole operation 
to clear the “dangerous zone” ' 
of the affected region of I 
southern Byelorussia bad been ! 
completed speedily. I 

The article made clear that a 
refinement of the original 
zone was underway, rather 
than the creation of a new one 
further to the north as indicat- 
ed early yesterday by Western 
news agency reports reports 
based on a mistranslation of 
Pravda. 

But the paper gave a clear 
indication that the effects of 
the disaster had been more 
wide-ranging than previously 
reported here. 

It said that people living in 
the south Gomel region had 
been warned against eating 
any food grown on private 
plots and that the state was 
providing tinned milk, meat 
and vegetables to make up for 
shortages.

Hailsbam favours 
new fees structure 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


The Lord Chancellor, Lord 
Hailsbam of St Marylebone. 
said yesterday that be would 
“greatly . welcome" the cre- 
ation of some kind ofindepen- 
dent advisory body to assist in 
negotiating fees with the legal 
profession. 

He was responding to a 
debate in the Lords in which 
practising and former judges, 
including three law lords, and 
other senior peers with a legal 
background, attacked the level 
of criminal legal -aid fees, and 
-urged a new fees mechanism 
in place of the present direct 
negotiation. ' 

Lord Haflsham said that he 
was not “unfriendly" to the 
suggestion, provided it conld 
be fitted in with the present 
statutory arrangements under 
which he must set a “fair and 
reasonable” level of pay. 

He said that he could not 
bring in such a body this year, 
before the present negotia- 
tions between the profession 


and the Government were 
concluded m July. . 

“Everyone must accept 
that, tike it or not, we are stoat 
with direct negotiation this 
year. But I must say, if we 
could find a mechanism, 
whether an advisory commit- 
tee or otherwise, which could 
help as a basis for any decision 
which the statute requires me 
to make, and sweeten the 
atmosphere, I would greatly 
welcome il" . 

The move for a new fees, 
advisory body was supported 
by some 15 judges and legal 
peers yesterday, led by Lord 
Benson, who opened the de- 
bate. He is dimrman of the 
Royal Gommissioa on Legal 
Sendees, which first suggested 
the idea. ' : 

It comes in the woke of the 
Bar’s legal action against Lord 
Haflsham over his 5 per .cent 
increase for criminal legal-aid 
fees, and led u> an. extended 
timetable for the talks. . .

Bonn, surplus 

West Germany had a trade

billion) and a current account 
surplus of DM8 J billion. in 
April. France had a current 
account surplus of FFr6.97. 
billion <£640 million), in. the 
first quarter of 1986.- 


Sir Gordon Boride, the Di- 
rector GeneraT of Faff Trad- 
ing, yesterday -hit. out oyer 
what be called “the frothy and 
almost hysterical merger 
boom” that has swept the-City 
over the last six months. 

In his introduction to his 
office’s report for 1985 to Mr 
Paul Channoit, the Secretary 
of State for Trade and Indus- 
try. Sir Gordon expressed 
particular worries over the 
costs involved in staging and 
defending bids, tire financing 
methods used to -launch take- 
overs and the 'growing use of 
advertising to persuade share- 
holders in a target company to 
stay loyal or choose between 
predators. . 

The report was published 
just a day before Mr Michael 
Howard, the Minister for Cor- 
porate and Consumer Affairs, 
is due to outline- a long- 
awaited government review of 
mergers and competitions pol- 


icy in reply to a Commons 
question this afternoon. 

However, Sir Gordon main- 
tained that the present system 
Of reviewing mergers bad 
stood - up well to what he 
-described as “merger mania” 
and the advent of the “mega- 
ranger” and he said that the 
effect on the public interest 
remained his primary 
concern. 

He declared: “The feet that 
the assets of a target company 
amounted to more than a 
billion, pounds was almost 
irrelevant— bigness may or 
may not be beautiful, but 
under my. scrutiny it is certain- 
ly not automatically bad.” 

Nonetheless, the director 
general had some harsh words 
to say about the side effects of 
the biggitst mergers. 

He pointed out that the 
costs involved on both sides of 
a bid bad to be met ultimately 
from-the- profits of the busi- 


nesses involved, adding: 
These transactions make 
heavy demands on manage- 
ment time and it has been 
suggested that the constant 
threat of takeover may have 
an undesirable effect on 
companies' strategic 
planning.” 

Although Sir Gordon ad- 
mitted that these issues went 
beyond his powers to advise 
on whether a particular bid 
should be referred to the 
Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission, he said he 
thought it was right to refer the 
Elders DCL bid for .Allied- 
Lyons, “which demonstrated 
in an extreme form the new 
trend to mount bids with 
borrowed money” 

Looking at the growing 
trend for companies involved 
in bids to take advertising on 
television and newspapers. Sir 
Gordon said: T have certainly 
wondered myself whether the 


advertiser feels be is gening 
value for money or is engaging 
in the practice merely because 
the other side is doing so. 

M It does not influence me 
and I doubt its influence on 
shareholders.” 

Figures in the annual report 
bear out Sir Gordon's refer- 
ences to the growth of “me 
mergers." Although the Off 
of Fair Trading considered 
only 192 mergers last year - 
against 259 in 1984 — their 
total value rose by 150 per 
cent, from £6 billion to £15 
billion, boosting the average 
bid from £23 million to £78 
miDion. 

The OFT said that in one 
week in December, a time 
when AJlied-Lyons, Flessey, 
Imperial Group and Distilleis 
were all subject to bids in 
excess of£J billion, it received 
reports of new mergers worth 
more than the entire 1984 
total. 



and Fine Fare for £700m 


Mr Alec -Monk's Dee Cor- 
poration joined die supermar- 
ket snperleagne yesterday 
when it agreed to buy the Fine 
Fare ass# Shoppers Paradise 
Store chflins lroni Mr Garfield 
Weston's Associated British 
Foods' group in a deal worth 


The vastly expanded group 
wffl have a turnover of £3 
billion and 11 per cent of the 
British grocery trade, dose 
behind its big rivals, J 
Saiasbary and Te$co. . 

But there was some concern 
la the stock market r- which 
has to absorb another huge 
dunk of Dee shares to JEmance 
the, deal — that it has paid a 
heavy price. - 

However, Mr Mbnksafcfc T 
don't think we have paid too 
lunch. It is not a question of 
what Fine .Fare was earning 


By Cliff Feitham 

last jear, bat bow much it can 
be made to earn when we put it 
together with onr groop and 
achieve very considerable 
savings.” 

Fine Fare, which has been 
.part of ABF Jor many 
has annual sales of 
bfilMmand slightly more than 5 
per gent of the packaged 
■grocery trade. Profits lor the 
latest 12 months were up 24 
per cent, at £333 million. 

The 280 Fine Fare stores 
wifi he merged with Dee's 
Gateway and Carrefonr opera- 
tions over the next three years. 
Mr Monk has so for not spelt 
out plans for the 139 Shoppers 
Paradise discount stores. 

- Assocsated Britisb Foods is 
taking £362 million of Dee 
shares, which will give It 15 
per cent of the enlarged group. 
It has pledged hot to sell any 


shares for at least six months. 

Another £350 million of 
shares is being placed with 
City institutions -to pay the 
debt which comes with the 
business. The City is asked to 
pay in two stages: £1 on 
application and the balance of 
137p on September 26. 

Mr Ahm Jones; food store 
analyst at Phillips & Drew, the 
stockbroker, thought Mr 
Monk had paid a high price. 
He said: “He will have to work 
hard at rationalization to see 
any benefits and they will not 
be in the short term”. 

Associated British Foods, 
which has more than 30 per 
cent of the bread market 
through its Snnblest brand, 
says it has derided to concen- 
trate on food manufacturing 
instead of re tailing. 


Standard 
rebuff 
for Lloyds 

By ffichard^Ihomson 
Banking Correspondent 

Lloyds Bank's i\2 billion 
bid! for Standard Chartered 
has so fer received the thumbs 
down from Standard share- 
holders. Uoydssaid yesterday 
that ft had received 0.29 per 
cent acceptances by Tuesday 
afternoon, ' the first closing 

toto?. ..: ... . . ■: 

It also extended the offer by 
a further three-weeks. 

The. bank said that.it had 
received - acceptances of 
451,779. Standard shares in- 
cluding 58,000 which remain 
subject to verification. Lloyds 
owned no Standard shares 
when it announced its inten- 
tion to bid two months ago 
and has bought no shares since 
then. - 

The Lloyds Bank pension 
fund, which holds 430,000 
Standard shares, or 0.28 per 
cent of the total, appears not 
to have, accepted the offer so 
fer. . 

J Henry Schroder" Waga, the 
merchant bank ad vising Stan- 
dard in its defence, said that 
the number of acceptances 
seemed extremriy small even 
at . this stage in the bid. It was 
Bkely to mean' that JL3oy J ~ 
would have to raise its- of 
before it could hope to receive 

sufficient acceptances to win. 

But after the ahnouncement 
the Standard share price 
dropped a further 2p to 792p, 
a full £1 below its price hi the 
lime Lloyds announced its 
bid. -.The -shares are now 42p 
above the 750p basic offer put 
forward by Lloyds. - .

fell again ■yesterday, as hopes 
persisted of a cut in base rates 
within die next few days. 
Rates edged down by '/ia or 
per cent, despite some signs of 
weakness for the pound. 

The triggeribr a cut in rates, 
now 10 per cent, to 9.5 per 
cent, could come with the 
money supply figures next 
Tuesday. 

These are expected to show 
a sharp slowdown in broad 
money growth, or foiling that 
the inflation figures, due the 
following Friday. 

But some dealers main- 
tained that rates could fell 
before the end of the week. 
The last time base rates were 
in single figures was at the end 
of 1984. Yesterday, the ihree- 


the mark, with a two pfennig 
fen to DM3.3795. The sterling 
index fell 0.4 to 75.7. 

This was mainly due to oil 
price weakness on the spot 
market, together with the 
announcement of a SO cent' 
cm, to $11.50 a barrel, in 
Egypt's- benchmark crude oil 
pnee. 

. The foreign exchange mar- 
kets also appear to have built a 
short-term cut in base rates 
into their calculations. 

The outlook for the dollar 
remains uncertain, although 
tbegeneral expectation is for a 
further decline, after a -pause 
for breath. 

In Boston yesterday, Mr 
James Baker, the US Treasury 


month interbankrate closed at * Secretary, repealed his call for 
9^18-9% per cent, and the exchange rate stability but 
one-month rate was 10-9% per refused to comment on wfaeih- 
cenu er this included the dollar/yen 

The pound lost ground exchange rate. 


C&W puts 
£67m Into 
sea cable 

By Jeremy Warner 

Business Correspondent 

Cable and Wireless, the 
international telecommunica- 
tions operator, is to invest 
$100 million (£67.2- million) 
in a new fibre-optic cable 
between the United States and 
Japan. 

This investment will form 
part of the company's strategy 
for building a global telecom- 
munications network. 

The $500 million cable, 
which will carry 60,000 simul- 
taneous telephone calls, is 
expected to go into service in 
the second half of 1989. 

C and W is taking a 20 per 
cent interest in the US end of 
the project, with the rest 
owned by Pacific Telecom, 
one of the largest non-Bell 
telephone operators in the US. 

■ It also hopes to lake a 20per 
cent share in the Japanese 
end-Talks are taking place 
with a number of Japanese 
companies with the intention 
of forming a joint venture for 
the project 

The cable will run between 
Washington State and Japan. 
A connection with Alaska, 
mainly for national security 
use, is also planned. 

Capacity on the cable wifi be 
sold or leased to private users. 
C and W also intends to retain 
some capacity for its own use 
and that of Mercury Commu- 
nications, the C and W subsid- 
iary licensed by the 
Government to compete with 
British Telecom. 

Mr Joe Crouch, C and Ws 
marketing director, said be 
believed that the higb-quaLity 
digital systems which would 
come into service towards the 
end of the decade would create 
massive fresh demand. 

He said it would create 
customer-choice on the Pacif- 
ic route as well as comple- 
menting the transatlantic 
optical-fibre system in which 
C&W is participating.

TV-am/the once troubled million and turnover last year 

showed ail 88 per cent im- 
provement to £29.3 million. 
Profits were struck after pay- 
ing £4.29 million in exchequer 
levy. 

TV-am has increased its 
share of the breakfast televi- 
rion audience to 64 per cent 
and now reaches an average, 
weekly audience of more than 
12.5 million. 

- The flotation on the Unlist- 
ed Securities Market is likely 
to value the company at about 
£40 million. 

The shares to be sold are the 
33.9 per cent of the company 
owned by United Newspapers 
through its takeover of Fleet. 
Holdings- 


independent breakfast televi- 
sion station, yesterday an- 
nounced a "sharp U-turn in 
trading performance and con- 
firmed- that it was on course 
for -a July stock market 
flolation. 

Pretax profits for the year to 
the end -of January reached 
£4.83 million, in contrast to 
the £2J09 minion loss the 
previous year. - 

TV-am began broadcasting 
in February 1983, and in its 
first year, when audiences at 
one point fefl to 300,000, 
losses reached £12 million. 

Advertising revenue over 
the past two years has grown 
from £7 million to £28.8 


Longton faces 
£13.7m bid 
by timber firm 

By Onr City Staff 

Thomson T-Line, the loss- 
making timber merchant, last 
night launched a £1 3.7 million 
bid for Longton Industrial 
Holdings, the road haulage 
and property development 
group. 

Thomson, which is now 
controlled by Mr Julian Asian 
and Mr Hugo Biermann, the 
South African financiers, 
claims the backing of 37 per 
cent of the Longton sharehold- 
ers for its offer worth 190p a 
share. 

IT the bid succeeds. Thom- 
son intends to sell Longton’s 
steel stockholding and engi- 
neering supply companies. 


Lazard’s ‘record’ £350n

group, which Lazards under-

p taring equally with Swiss

The message from Lazaids the bankers 
to -that . massive capital re- discontent. 


By Onr Banking Correspondent 

sources are not necessary to do 
big deals. Under the chair- 
manship of Sir John Nott, the 
bank has decided that there is 
no shortage of outside institu- 
tional cash to he tapped on a 
deal-by-deal basis what sheer 
weight of money is needed. 

Lazards itself has published 
shareholders funds’ of a mere 
£70 million and that Sir John 
believes, is quite enough to he 
going on with. 

The secret is not to get 
involved in market-making 
which ^ brings with it huge risks 
and ends up with the market- 
makers running the hank and 
leaving in 


The bank is broadening its 
profits base by giving more 
equal weight to its four main 
areas of activity — corporate 
finance, trading, banking and 
fund management 

But corporate finance re- 
mains tiie flagship and the 
quality of its s lricc and exper- 
tise is, therefore, of paramount 
importance to a bank which 
has little market-making 
capability. 

To fhis end, Lazards an- 
nounced yesterday that it had 
persaaided Mr John Nelson to 
leaw the busy corporate fi- 
nance parlours of Kkanwort 
Benson and head its own 
corporate finance divisiou. 


Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 


Channel: all over bar 
the Luddite shouting 


Luddites come in all shapes and 
forms. The latest attempt to halt the 
march of progress comes from the 
good people of Kent and their 
representatives. They hate the idea of 
the Channel tunnel, construction of 
which is due to begin on . their 
doorstep around Easter next year. If 
they could block the hybrid Bill 
enabling Europe's largest ever civil 
engineering project to go ahead, they 
would. 

Their last chance of at least halting 
the progress of the Bill and thus 
putting a spanner in the works of the 
tunnel's promoters, vanished on 
Tuesday night with the overwelming 
defeat of procedural objections. 

The Bill is now free to begin its 
second reading when it is debated 
today and there appears little more 
that Jonathan Aitken (Con., Thanet 
South) and others can do to slow the 
project other than make a noise and 
raise, objections with the Commons 
select committee on the tunnel. This 
may not be an entirely fruitless 
exercise since the Government might 
force the newly named Eurotunnel to 
take on board the committee's 
recommendations. 

Potential economic benefits from 
the tunnel for outweigh local con- 
cerns. As a construction project it will 
provide a much needed shot in the 
arm for Britain's traditional in- 
dustries, especially in the depressed 
regions north and west of Bir- 
mingham, at no cost to the taxpayer. 
It will provide a 24-hour-a-day trade 
gateway to Europe, which is already 
the market place for about 60 per cent 
of Britain's exports. 

According to Lord Pennock, joint 
chairman of Eurotunnel, it will reduce 
freight costs to most destinations in 
Europe by around a third once travel 
time savings are taken into account 

Investors who indicated at the time 
of the competition for a fixed Channel 
link that they would back the project 
will be sent a revised prospectus next 
month, detailing the first £200 million 
tranche of equity that the consortium 
intends to raise. The main £800 
million public offering of shares in 
London, Paris and other international 
markets will take place in April or 
May next year at about the same time 
the. hybrid Bill receives the Royal 
Assent. 

The balance of the £4.5 billion 
projected cost of the scheme is being 
provided by a consortium of 37 
international banks. The syndicated 
loan agreement is expected to be 
signed later this month. What hap- 
pens, if the investing public turns its 
back on the scheme? That will not 
happen. Lord Pennock confidently 
predicts. 

TV floats on cue 

Thames Television and TV-am are 
applying the art of scheduling pro- 
grammes to impressive advantage. 
The prospectus for Thames is ex- 


pected at the end of next week and 
TV-am will probably be floated 
early next month. 

TV-am's results for the year to 
January 31. published yesterday, 
show both the extent of the recovery 
from early mismanagement and 
favourable trends in the industry. It 
replaced losses of £2.09 
million with profits of £4.83 million, 
and the pundits are confidently 
forecasting £7 million for this year. 
Thames is expected to increase profits 
from £14.6 million to £17.5 million in 
the year next March. 

The two companies are coming to 
the stock market just as share prices in 
currently quoted television con- 
tractors are taking off. Anglia, Central 
and LWT have all been buoyant 
recently as investors have come to 
savour the recovery in advertising 
revenues. 

After a bad first half of 1985, 
revenues started to pick up in July, 
since when the average monthly 
increase has been 18 per cent. The 
next round of results should reflect 
this gain. It may not be roses, roses, all 
the way. James Halstead of James* 
Capel, the broker, is forecasting a 
slowdown in the second half of the 
year to 7 or 8 per cent The sense of 
timing of both Thames and TV-am is 
clearly acute. 

The point is also worth making, 
however, that volatile earnings are 
part of the pattern for television 
contractors. Most are rated on mul- 
tiples of less than 10 times prospective 
earnings and well above average 
yields. Thames's price tag will also 
have to take into account the adverse 
effect of proposed changes to the 
Exchequer levy system (the levy is 
charged against profits) which will hit 
it harder than most of its rivals 
because of its large export earnings. 

The more fundamental problem is 
the uncertainty of operating in a 
business which is dependent on fixed- 
term contracts awarded every eight 
years. The JBA is thought to be 
considering a switch to a rolling 
system but, because a change would 
uire legislation, that is unlikely to 
feet the 1988 applications. 

Conceivably, most of Thames’s 
business could be lost in three years’ 
time. As the largest company in the 
sector, it will nonetheless be floated 
on a multiple at least on a par, if not at 
a premium, to its peers. Should 
Thames lose the franchise, the idea is 
that it would increase Its emphasis on 
selling programmes overseas. 

Both Thames and TV-am can point 
to internal improvements. TV-am is 
recovering from its traumatic start in 
life and Thames has scope for 
dramatic cost reductions, unions 
permitting. Their advisers, KJeinwort 
Benson and County Fielding for TV- 
am, and County Bank, Cazenove and, 
again. County Fielding for Thames, 
can be trusted to make the most of 
their glittering opporunities.

: Dealers .wasted little time 
yesterday in -speculating what 
Associated British Foods 
would do with the £350 mil- 
lion proceeds from the saleof 
'its Fine Fare supermarket 
chain to Dee Corporation. ; 

Most of them are convinced 
' that the cash-rich AB Foods 
win now launch a bid for 
United Biscuits, the McVme 
food group, which was im suo- 
cessful in its attempts to mer^' 
with Imperial Group. 

Shares of United -Bfsarits 
foiled to reflect the specula- 
tion, closing 2p lower at 237 jv 
but could go sharply better 
over the medium term. 

At this level the entire group 
is valued at almost £1 buGon. 
Analysts appear convinced 
that Mr Garfield Weston, 
chairman of AB Foods; win 
now turn his back on food 
retailing pad stick to what he 
knows best — food manufac- 
turing. 

- Meanwhile, the rest of the 
. equity-market slowed, ro_a_ 
canter . as coachloads of bro- ' 

* kers and fond managers trav- 
elled to the Epsom Downs to 
watch the Derby. 

. The FT . 30-share index 
closed -a mere 02 ap at 
1 320.6, while the broader FT- 
SE 100 lost 0.8 at 1,60L4. 
Investors are s till worried 
about the apparent drain o®. 
resources stemming, from the 
numerous cash raising exer- 
cises and new issues already in 
the pipeline.

to. the postal dispute cheered 
the big mail order companies

on Monday. Freemans led the 
- way with a J6p jump to 394p 
' followed' by Grattan, I2p to 
402 p, find Great Universal 
Starts A, 5p to £10.65. 

But tiie High Street banks 
remained in the doldrums. 
The massive cash call by 
National Westminster, Sp 
cheaper at 745p, and 
downgrading by several bro- 
kers of profit estimates at 
. Barclays, 3p lower at 484p, 
have left their mart. Analysts 
remain worried about the 
expected increase in edmpeti- 
tion from other areas. Uoyds 
Bank lost another Sp to 542p 
and Midland a similar 
amount at 522p. 

But the insurance compos- 
ites tried to shrug off tears 
about the possible loss of 
business .stemming from the 
State of Florida's decision to 
try to reduce insurance premi- 
ums after the sharp increase of 
rates in. the past couple of 
years. Guardian Royal added 
3p to 833p with Sim Affiance 
at 629p and Royal Insurance 
at 857p, Commercial Union 
firmed lp to 304p, while 
General Accident recovered 
an early foil to finish all- 
square at 799p. 

Shares of Mr Michael 
Ashcroft’s Hawley Group were 
suspended at I26p with 
Pritchard Services Group at 
122p. Marketmen hope that 
both sides have now got 
together to agree terms follow- 
ing Hawley’s recent bid of 
1 1 9p a share. Mr PeteT Pritch- 
ard, chairman of Pritchard, 
has already rejected Hawley's 
first approach, but the group 
dearly looks vulnerable after 
seeing pretax profits foil from 


£15 million to £10 million last 
year and the dividend cut. 

Chase Manhattan Securi- 
ties, the broker which emerged 
from the merger of Laurie 
Mil bank and Simon & Coates, 
has just completed a review of 
the food manufacturers. It 
believes that it can only be a 
matter of time before S & W 

The decision by the Ford 
.Motor Company to increase 
production in Britain by an 
extra 5000,000 vehicles a year 
could be good news for 
Armstrong Equipment. Ford is 
its biggest customer and Arm- 
strong is expected to benefit 
from the extra workload. It 
win also add impetus to 


force analysts to upgrade the 
£9.5 million pretax profits 
they are looking for next 
year.The shares were un- 
changed at 122p. 

Berisford sells its 15 per cent 
stake in Ranks Hovis 
McDougaH to someone else 
who will then launch a full 
bid. 

Chase is looking for pretax 
profits of around £83 million 
for the year to August 31, 
compared with £715 million 
last time. The broker is con- 
vinced that with such a well- 
managed group, the shares 
deserve a higher rating than 
the prospective p/e of 1 12 on 
offer. 

Turner & NewaB, the indusr 
trial giant, pleased the market 
yesterday by announcing that 
claims on the group for asbes- 
tos-related diseases during 
1986 have been reduced by a 
further £3.6 minion. That 
brings the total reduction so 
for this year to £11.6 milli on. 
Hie shares responded with a 
6p rise to 328p. 


Hie market seemed to be 
quite unprepared for the ex- 
ceptionally good results an- 
nounced by Reed Inter- 
nationa] yesterday and the 
share price leapt 65p to an all- 
time high of 91 9p. 

Tn the record results for the 
year to March 31, 1986, 
pretax profit jumped to £137 

million, 28 per cent up on the 
previous year and comfort- 
ably ahead of market expecta- 
tions. The dividend was 
increased by 22 per cent to 
22.5p. 

At the trading level, ex- 
cluding discontinued busi- 
nesses, the improvement was 
even more dramatic, as the 
profit rose from £113-6 mil- 
lion to £151.9 million. All 
parts of the business did well 
Distortions at this level are 
largely self-cancelling the 
£12.7 million exceptional 
charge is matched by a £13 
million reduction in the cost 
of the British pension 
schemes. Adverse currency 
movements reduced the re- 
ported result by £6 million. 

Nearly half of Reed's prof- 
its are made from business 
publications and publishing 
consumer magazines in Brit- 
ain and the US- 

More than 40 per cent of 
profit comes from paper and 
packaging ranging from cor- 
rugated cases in Britain and 
Europe to newsprint manu- 
facture in Canada. This seg- 
ment did particularly well 
and should do even better 
□ext year when Reed will 
have a frill year's benefit from 
running its now modernized 
Canadian newsprint plant at 
capacity for the first time in 
more than three years. 

The balance of profit, just 
over 10 per cent, comes from 
the paint and do-it-yourself 
companies, where foe best 
known brands are Crown 
Plus Two and PolycetL 

In 1986/7, the reduced 
pension contribution will 
continue and in the absence 
of exceptionals, pretax profit 
could exceed £160 million. 


The tax charge is likely to foO 
below this year's average of 
only 31 per cent due to capital 
allowances in Canay fo. put- 
ting the shares on a prospec- 
tive multiple of only 9.5, 
despite yesterday's price rise. 

Gnthrie Corp 

The Guthrie Corporation is 
the unfortunate victim of a 
chequered past The compa- 
ny, first quoted in 1965, was 
bid for unsuccessfully by 
Sime Darby and then taken 
over in 1981 by Permodalan 
National Berhad, a govern- 
ment-funded Malaysian in- 
vestment trust A year later, 
Guthrie's plantation interests 
were transferred to a Malay- 
sian-based company, leaving 
tbe rump of Guthrie with an 
implied value of just £57 
million. 

Essentially the same com- 
pany is now coming to the 
stock market valued at £123 
million. Reflecting its origins 
— from plantations company 
to a rag-bag of diversifica- 
tions — its activities have 
little in common. They in- 
clude aviation services, An- 
gus fire-fighting equipment, 
Butler automotive compo- 
nents and Duralay floor 
coverings. Since 1982, there 
have been few acquisitions. 
There have been several clo- 
sures and disposals, however, 
and more can be expected. 

The benefits of manage- 
ment attention and reorgani- 
zation show through in the 
profit record: a steady rise 
from £1.73 million in 1982 to 
£14.1 million last year. The 
company declines to quantify 
the effect of exchange rate 
movements but with only 20 
per cent of sales in Britain 
and Europe these must be 
important The company 
says only that currencies were 
favourable in 1984 and a 
hindrance in 1985. 

There is no forecast for the 
current year but assuming 
operating profits rise by 15 


per cent the company might 
-make as much as £1 9 million, 
allowing for lower interest 
charges reflecting in part the 
benefit of £16.1 million new 
money. 

The stated multiple at the 
offer-for-5ale price of 1 50p is 
9.1 times historic earnings 
after a low tax charge. Last 
year, the tax charge was only 
16 per cent but it will 
probably rise towards 30 per 
cent next year. This low 
multiple more than takes 
account of that risk, and 
seems to reflect fears that 
PNB will further reduce its 
holding from a post-flotation 
level of 63.4 per cent as soon 
as it is allowed to do so. 

For ' Mr John “Jock" 
Green-Armytage. ihe manag- 
ing director, the company's 
likely value in 1989 is proba- 
bly more important than its 
price today. This is because 
he has options over 2.1 
million^hares exercisable un- 
til March 1989. These were 
granted at a price based on 
the amount PNB paid for the 
shares in 1981. At the offer- 
for-sale price, the options are 
worth £3 million. 

In 1989 they could be worth 
much more than that. The. 
shares look attractive at 1 SOp. 

Tenby Industries 

In volatile market conditions 
discretion can prove the bet- 
ter part of valour when it 
comes to new issues — partic- 
ularly when a company's 
trading record is not top 
notch. 

But the need to reduce the 
debts at Tenby Industries' 
troubled parent, BSR Inter- 
national, is dearly an impor- 
tant consideration in this 
case. So rather than waiting 
for Tenby's expected profits 
upturn, foe offer for sale is 
©Ding ahead raising about 
£11.5 million for BSR but 
leaving the parent company 
with a 40 percent share of the 
anticipated improvement. 


The company’s two divi- 
sions have shown contrasting 
performances in recent years. 
Electrical accessories — sock- 
ets. plugs and switches — is 
the main profits earner and 
experienced steady growth 
until last year when pretax 
profib fell by a third to £1.4 
-million because of foiling 
demand from the Middle 1 
East and competition is Brit- 
ain. 

The engineering activities 
— components for the defence 
and automotive industries, 
electric vehicle motors, and 
scientific apparatus — which 
in 1982 contributed losses of 
almost £1 million, are now 
benefiting from restructuring 
and in 1985 had profib of 
£0.9 million. 

Overall, profits have 
moved ahead from £762,000 
to £2.48 million during four 
years but last year's 5 per cent 
increase was more than ac- 
counted forty a pension fund 
contributions holiday. 

The ungeared balance sheet 
means that Tenby is now 
thinking of acquisitions but 
none has been identified. 
Electricals remain vulnerable 
to any further problems in the 
Middle East and the high 
level of uninsured debt — 
more than £1.5 million — 
owed by Iraq is a potential 
risk. 

Tax losses of £15 million 
will relieve the company 
from mainstream corpora- 
tion tax for several years and 
the effective rate for 1 986 will 
be below 10 percent. There is 
no official forecast but the £3 
million profits threshold for 
directors’ bonuses gives an 
obvious pointer to expecta- 
tions. That would bring down 
the p/e ratio factual tax) from 
9 to a prospective 7. The 
notional yield is 5 per cent at 
the 1 12p offer price. 

Up to a fifth of the shares 
for sale will be reserved for 
employees and BSR share- 
holders. Not one for foe stags.

lord and tenant would benefit best, ihe City of London, the 


matter, however. Aside, from 
the financial implications of 
spending money to retain 
investment value, there is the - 
problem of the lease structure 
of British developments. 
Grosvenor recognizes this arid 
would like to ' see 15-year

— although resistance from the 
traders spoiled its attempts to 
introduce such a lease in The 
Grosvenor Centre in Chester. 
However, changes in the na- 
ture ofleases in both retail and 
office developments are likely 
to be accelerated by the fact 
that neither can any longer be 
assumed to have a 25-year life.

known to the team '• at

Grosvenor is assuming that 
many institutional shopping 
centre owners will undertake- 
their own refurbishment, but ; 
where schemes are wholly 
owned by local authorities or 
in joint ventures there is scope 
for a developer with financial: 
backing to come in and up- 
grade a scheme.

Many parts of the 
American office market are 

seeing a hieh level of va- 
cancy alliedwith stagnant 
rents; These conditions are 
a result of little development 
in the late 19705 and early 
1960s which resulted in dra- 
matic rental rise. That in 
turn prompted developers to 
leap intothe market pro-

which is wising problems 
today. : ' 

Richard ElMs argues . 
that it is the right tmie to bay 
in certain areas where eco-

limit on further development. 

But the firm warns po- 
tential investors to steer dear 
of the industrial and high

the computer market.

Mr O’Rourke ays he is 
looking forward to being part 
of- a private- company once 
more and he envisages that it 
will stay that way for at least 
three to five years. 

The hew company will start 
operations in September and 
key decisions about its struc- 
ture. are now being discussed. 
The crucial decision will be 
whether to- keep the company 
small or to opt for a larger 
equity base which will have 
some strings attached. There 
have been offers of finance 
and equity participation. 

If' Grosvenor Develop-

Arundell House 
founders split 


Arundell House Securities, 
the private property company 
which has made its name by 
developing office and retail 
schemes in Surrey, is to be 
restructured. 

Tbe -nine-year partnership 
between the company’s 
founders Mr Andrew Sturt 
and Mr Michael Campbell is 
to end. 

Mr Sturt has bought Mr 
Campbell’s 50 per cent stake 
in Arundell House, leaving 
each of them free to pursue 
their respective interests al- 
though these may still overlap 
through mutual schemes. Mr 
Campbell will spend more 
time with his Ellis Campbell 
investment company. 

. Mr Sturt . says: “A partner- 
ship is now a thing of the past 
Arundel] House took oft to a 
degree that was unexpected 
and the company now has to 
look at buying in permanent 
additional capitaL” 

This does not mean that 
Arundell House will be rush- 
ing to the market for a listing. 
Mr Sturt aims ip have a 
private placing towards the 
end of die year to bring in 
between £10 million and £20 
milli on. 

; Arundell House has already 
ventured away from its home 
base in Surrey by developing 
in the City of London where it 
now .has an office in its 
development at Trinity 
Square. It will shortly move to 
its Lion & Lamb retail scheme 
at Farnham, Surrey, keeping 


its traditional base in opera- 
tion as well. 

' Farnham is tbe company's 
first retail development where 
it has achieved a 9 per cent 
return on its costs. 

The retail sector is an area 
where Arundell House has 
ambitious plans. The compa- 
ny hopes to win consent for a 
£20 million, 200,000 sq ft 
retail development on the 
edge of Guildford, Surrey. It 
has lined up J Sainsbury's 
Homebase as a tenant Ihe 
site is close to that owned by 
London & Edinburgh Trust. 

It would also like to become 
involved in developing busi- 
ness parks. It is loolang at 
several sites in Surrey. 

But Arundell House prefers 
to try to develop in areas 
where a hard-won consent 
results m a high value scheme; 
Mr Sturt argues that there is 
the potential for a vast over- 
supply of offices in places like 
Reading arid Wokingham. He 
is cautious about becoming 
involved in such a market. 

Tbe company has a £70 
milion development pro- 
gramme but it aims to increase 
that substantially. An invest- 
ment portfolio is gradually 
being built to give it an asset 
base. 

Arun dell’s ambition will be 
to continue as a property 
trader but also to have the 
ability to keep some of its 
developments in the portfolio. 
Falling interest rates may help 
it do that. 


Profits up 
by 60 % 
at Belfast 
airport 

By Bob Rodwell 

AWergrove, Belfast Interna- 
tional Airport, now rates as 
the fourth largest British air- 
port ostside London in terms 
of passenger traffic and the 
second largest for freight 
movement. 

Tbe figures came in tbe 
annual report for 1985/86 
yesterday which show a 60 per 
cent increase in profits to more 
than £2.11 million. Total turn- 
over at £9315 million showed 
a 4-9 per cent increase with a 
26 per cent increase generated 
by non-aircraft related com- 
mercial activity. 

Aldergrore is one of Brit- 
ain’s six freeports designated 
in August 1984 but despite the 
spending of about £200,000 for 
extra fixed assets on its 81- 
acre freeport site and heavy 
marketing ft has yet to attract 
its first tenant. 

Belfast International Air- 
port’s long experience of oper- 
ating in an environment in 
which terrorism has been a 
factor has led to many visits 
from security antborities 

elsewhere.

THE 


TIMES 




June 5, 1986 


T he phrase “City 
Revolution” suggests 
that change is something 
new to the City. It is not 
The City has always 
pioneered change in the provision 
of financial services. What we are 
now seeing is one of those periods 
of intense activity during which 
traditional structures adjust to 
new needs and new opportunities. 
Chartered accountants are at the 
hub of this process. 

During the past few years, the 
traditional audit market has ma- 
tured. That is to say, firms of 
chartered accountants could not 
look for further growth of the 
company audit market. Many of 
these firms have been successful in 
providing "added value” to the 
audit and related advice to man- 
agements who had often been 
sceptical about the worth to die 
company of a historical financial 
snapshot. But overall it was clear 
that the audit market was unlikely 
to provide much scope for accoun- 
tancy firms to expand. 

Well' before the audit market 
matured, many firms of chartered 
accountants had sought channels 
for diversification. During the 


past 1 5 years or so, this process 
has occurred at a tremendous rate. 
In particular, accountancy firms 
of all sizes began to market 
themselves as "the complete busi- 
ness adviser”, thus complement- 
ing the more traditional staples of 
audit and tax. As a consequence, 
the country's largest management 
consultancy is now part of a firm 
of chartered accountants. 

More recently still, accountancy 
firms spotted opportunities for 
renewed growth in their share of 
the expanding corporate finance 
market — one of those strands of 
change in the City. 

In a sense, this is history 
repeating itself. Accountants had 
relaxed their grip on this market a 
generation or two ago, to the 
advantage of the merchant banks. 
Now accountants are attacking 
again with vigour. They are well 
placed to do so, often having a 
strong base of office and long 
client lists to aid their marketing. 

These strengths have been sup- 
plemented by the formation of 
inter-disciplinary teams com- 
posed of accountants and non- 
accountants with different 
individual skills to offer. 


Accountants are at 
the hub of the 


new opportunities 
being offered by 
the City Revolution, 
says Derek Boothman 



Several of our firms have now, 
for example, carved out distinc- 
tive niches in the provision of 
advice for companies wishing to 
float on the Unlisted Securities 
Market. Others have developed 
expertise in effecting management 
buyouts or in venture capital 
platings. And the Government 
has begun to turn to accountancy 
firms for help on privatization 
schemes. This increasing activity 
of chartered accountants in corpo- 
rate finance looks like a trend 
which is set to continue. 

The second main effect of City 


change for the accountancy profes- 
sion relates to the role of the 
auditor. In three separate, but 
related, pieces of draft legislation 
now working their respective ways 
towards the statute book, new 
responsibilities will be placed on 
auditors revolved with building 
societies, banks and other compa- 
nies providing financial services. 
In each of these three areas, the 
auditor is likely to be expected to 
play a more active role in coqjunc- 
lion with the various supervising 
bodies than he is presently re- 
quired to do. 


This is a role which, in princi- 
ple, auditors welcome. They rec- 
ognize that their work, is one of a 
number of ways in which the 
financial soundness or integrity of 
the business can be ensured and 
the confidence of investors in 
Britain's highly successful finan- 
cial sector maintained. 

It is also possible that auditors 
working in the financial services 
sector will be asked to report on 
compliance with certain, aspects of 
the "conduct of b usin ess* roles 
which will be laid down by the 
Securities and Investment Board 
or the seif-regulatory 1 organiza- 
tions and which will govern the 
way in which those involved in. 
handling investments operate. 

If however, auditors are to fulfil 
an expanded role in this new City 
regime, it will be important that all 
concerned fully appreciate the 
techni cal and practical constraints 
of an audit Any system of 
investor protection which does 
not recognize these constraints 
could be fundamentally flawed. 
The auditor is only periodically on 
the premises of the company 
whose accounts are being audited. 

The work is confined to forming 


an opinion on the truth and 
fairness of the annual financial 


statements, and to whai las gone 
before rather than what ties ahead. 
The auditor .has- no right to 
comment on management s style 
or its commercial decisions. Mis- 
conceptions about the auditors 
function can result in an “expecta- 
tions gap”, and. more important, 
in inadequate internal control of 
the company’s financial affairs. 


O ne aspect of the immi- 
nent changes in the 
City relates to interna- 
tionalization as foreign . 
institutions move in. 
This is a natural development, but 
if these institutions bring with 
them altitudes which .exacerbate 
the growing tendency to sue the 
auditors, regardless of actual cm- 
pability, there is a risk of the 
supervisory regime being under- 
mined. The risk is that auditors, if 
unprotected, will turn down busi- 
ness in the financial services 
sector. That will be to nobody’s 
advantage. 


matters to supervisors This re- 
lates to the liability which an 
auditor might fere ifhis judgment 
proved to be m i sg u ided. 

1C for instance, the auditor 
reported suspicions to the supervi-

Purely a matter of course 


Frequently managers 
do not have enough 
free time to attend 
training courses. 
Beryl Dixon examines 
some of the ways 
to beat the problem 


“Incredibly few British: managers have 
any form of training. Too many struggle 
along, learning as they go. Most fed they 
can’t spare the lime for courses. But this 
cow* is ideal for someone, iij that 
position.” These jure the words of 
Richard Horton, a managing director, 
who refers to a recent course in ‘open’ or' 
'distance' management training which he 
has just attended. 

Companies do use. management 
courses and business schools — but what 
are the alternatives for managers who 

cannot be spared from their jobs? 

Correspondence courses? Yes — gener- 
ations have obtained qualifications in 
this manner, but- it is a -lonely way to 
study and- requires great self-discipline. 
Evening classes? They do a very good job 
for large numbers of people, but many 
managers .cannot afford ihecommilment 
on the same evening every week. 

Distance learning involves managers 
studying by themselves in their own time 
— good news from the company’s point 
of view as it costs a fraction of the price 
of residential courses. So for, that sounds 
remarkably like correspondence courses. 
But providers of open learning have ■ 
come up- with a multi-media tuition 
package of traditional printed material 
combined with audio and video tapes 
and computer software. 


The two pioneers and innovators of u 
open learning for all, are the Open. 

University and the intemationaHy re- their ‘ own staff- development 
nown. management college — Henley. programmes.- 
The OlT s Open Business School was. R*es are cost conscious, ranging from

residential weekends: There is also New Management Course. So has Rich- 
ilexibiliiy for companies to purchase the aid Barraclough, assistant group secre- 
raaterials and .incorporate them into tary of George Wimpey PLC, and 


Graham Winter, southern regional man- 
ager of F W Woolworth. 

Graham Winter has spent all his 
working life with Woolwonh, alter 
joining as an A level trainee, but he 
wanted to broaden his base. No stranger 
to home study, having taken IPM and 
Institute of Marketing qualifications by 
correspondence course, he drew up a 
study plan, and adhered to it — but with 
difficulty after a long day. He found the 
course useful, the residential modules 
particularly so, gaining from tire syndi- 
cate work with other people. The tutors ‘ 
he found widely experienced and willing 
to provide as much personal contact as 
he required. 

Richard Barraclough : is a business 
studies graduate and a chartered secre- 
tary. He particularly wanted a course in 
general management that would fiil the 
- gaps in his own knowledge. He had for 
example, a need to know more about 
financial accounting. Having just been 
promoted to his present post, he simply 
could not find the time for a full-time 
course. He, too, points out that it is not 
easy to find time for home study, but 
says he gained the skills be wanted. Like 
Graham Winter, he stresses the value of 
the residential modules - “It’s the 
interaction between people, especially 
from other companies, that maiw them 
so effective.” 

One must not make too many claims 
for distance learning. It still requires 
commitment and self-discipline. Bui tire 
combination of methods does help to 
maintain interest. Students who cannot 
relate to audio cassettes may respond 
well to video, and most agree that having 
concepts reinforced by audio visual and 
written methods is effective. 

A personal work schedule is 
devised for each participant 

The Ing plus factor in the Henley and 
OU courses is the provision of personal 
contact The Business School builds on 
the Open University's tested system of 
tutorials and residential weekends. Each 
student is also given the telephone 
number of a personal tutor. Both 
Richard Barraclough and Graham Win- 
ter stress that the chance to meet and 
discuss with other students was one of 
the most valuable elements of their 
course. 

Open learning certainly seems to be 
the coming thing. The two institutions 
mentioned are by no means the only 
providers. Others include polytechnic 
and university business schools, and the 
Business and Technician Education 
Council has just announced an open . 
learning initiative "Update for 
Business”.

Rogfcr BnBmnt Ltd and Oth- 
ers v Ellis ami Otters 
Before Lord Justice May and 
Lord Justice Nounse 
[Judgment given May 23] 

Where a person had unlaw- 
fully made use of confidential 
information belonging io his 
former employer, thereby gain- 
ing a springboard of unfair 
advantage in compering wiih 
him, and the former employer 
sought an injunction restraining 
the ton feasor from contracting 
with persons whose names ana 
addresses formed pan of (he 
unlawfully used information, 
the injunction should last for no 
longer than the unfair ad vantage 
could reasonably be expected to 
continue. 

The Court of Appeal so held 
in a reserved judgment, allowing 
an appeal by the first four 
defendants. Mr Michael Frank 
Ellis, Van-EHe Construction Co 
Ltd. Mr George Gibson and Mr 
Thomas Brendan O'Connor, 
from an order of Mr Justice 
Falconer in the Chancery’ Di- 
vision on August 6. 198S, 
restraining them until afer judg- 
ment in the action or until 
further order from entering or 
fulfilling any contract with or 
through any person whose name 
appeared on a card-index re- 
moved by the first defendant 
from the posession of his former 
employers, the plaintiffs. Roger 
BuUivam Ltd, Roger Buliivant 
(Midlands) Lid and Mr Roger 
Buliivant, while he was still 
employed by them. 

Mr John V. Fitzgerald for the 
defendants; Mr Leolin Price. 
QC and Mr Graham Shipley for 
the plaintiffs. 

LORD JUSTICE NOURSE 
said that the card-index which 
the first defendant had removed 
and photocopied bad contained 
confidential information which, 
pursuant to his general implied 
duty of fidelity in his employer, 
he had been entitled to use 
during his employment for the 
benefit of the plaintiffs only: see 
Faccenda Chicken Ltd v Fowler 
([1986] 1 AUER 617). 

The index did not contain 
information which could not 
bwfiiliy have been obtained 
from other sources; its value to 
the first defendant was that it 
contained a ready and finite 
compilation of the names and 
addresses of those who had 
brought business to the plain- 
tiffs and therefore might bring 
business to him. 

He could not complain if the 
law could not distinguish be- 
tween those whom he could 
have contacted lawfully (with- 
out using the card-index) and 
those whom he could noL 
It was of the highest im- 
portance that the principle of 
Robb v Green {[1895] 2.QB 1, 
315), which was one of now 
more than lair aad honourable 
dealing, should be steadfastly 
maintained. On the evidence 
anti submissions before him. the 
judge had reached a decision 
with which it would be impos- 
sible for the court to interfere. 

Further evidence had been 
adduced on appeal, none of 
which would have justified 
allowing the appeal. . 

However, the defendants bad 
advanced a further submission 
of law not made below, namely, 
that the injunction should last 
no longer than was necessary to 


dams taking unfair advantage of 
the springboard built up by the 
misuse of ihc information in the 
card index. Such an advantage 
could not last for ever. 

The law did not restrain 
lawful competition, and m 
restraining unlawful com- 
petition it sought to protect the 
injured, not to punish the guilty. 

It was noi right therefore for 
the term of the injunction to 
extend beyond the period for 
which the advantage might 
reasonably be expected to con- 
tinue: sec Poiters-BaUonni Ltd v 
iVestQn-Baker{\\9TT\ RPC 202, 
206-7). Harrison r Project & 
Design (Redcar) Ltd <[1978] 
PSR 8f, 87-8) and Fisher- 
Karpark Industries Lid v Nichols 
([1982] FSR 351,353-4). 

In this case, the dale on which 
the springboard advantage 
would cease could not be pre- 
cisely fixed. If the first defen- 
dant had acted lawfully in 
gaining his customers, it would 
not have been very long before it 
was well known that be and the 
other defendants were in busi- 
ness on their own account. 

The first defendant’s employ- 
ment contract had provided that 
he would not trade with the 
plaintiffs' diems for year after 
the termination of his employ- 
ment' that was a dear indication 
of the period which the plaintiffs 
regarded as reasonable 
They could not reasonably 
expect, and the law could not 
reasonably allow, a longer pe- 
riod for the injunction. 

Had that point been taken 
before the judge, he would have 
been bound to limit the period 
of the injunction to, at the 
longest, one year from the date 
of the termination of the first 
defendant's employment with 
the plaintiffs. 

That date had already passed, 
and the injunction ought there- 
fore to be discharged. 

LORD JUSTICE MAY re- 
ferred to Terrapin Ltd v 
Builders' Supply Co (Hayes) Lid 
t[ 1 960] RPC 1 26. 1 35). Seager v 
Copyaex Ltd ([1967] 1 WLR

Clark (Engineers) Ltd (II %9] 
RPC 41. 50 J. Potters- Ballot ini, 
Harrison and Fisher- Karpiuk. 
and said that it was clear from 
them dial there were a number 
of important considerations 
First, a distinction could and 
should be drawn between 
information which com- 
promised trade secrets and that 
which was merely confidential 
(see Faccenda Chicken). 

Second, subject to the Ameri- 
id ( 


prevent tbem enjoying the un- 
fair advantage which the use of 
the card-index had afforded 
them. 

The effect of the injunction 
granted had been to prevent the 
defendants from contracting 
with those with whom they 
undoubtedly could have con- 
tracted without using the 
confidential information. While 
that was not fetal to the propri- 
ety of the injunction, it did 
require the court to ensure that ‘ 
it was not in other resepets 
unduly onerous. 

The purpose of the injunction 
bad been to prevent the defen- 

Time limit in 
bringing 
driving charge

Act ran from the date on which 
evidence sufficient in tbe opin- 
ion of the secretary of state to 
warrant the proceedings came to 
his knowledge and not from the 
date on which the police officer 
became aware of the facts. 

The Queen's Bench Di- 
visional Court (Lord Justice 
Woolf and Mr Justice Mac- 
pherson) so held on June 4. 


can Cynamid ((1975) AC 396) 
principles, interim injunctions 
could be granted to prevent 
defendants from obtaining an 
unjust headstart io or as a 
springboard for activities detri- 
mental to the provider of the 
confidential information. 

- Third, in relation to confiden- 
tial information, as distinct 
from real trade secrets, the court 
should be concerned not to give 
the injured party more protec- 
tion than he realistically needed 
or to discourage or prohibit 
what in tbe course of time 
became legitimate competition. 

Where “springboard" interim 
injunctions were sought, the 
judge should ask himself 
whether any injunction should 
be subject to a specific time 
limit, and if so what the limit 
should be. 

It was in most cases incorrect 
to leave it to the defendant to 
seek a further order in order to 
terminate the injunction; it was 
an issue to which the parties and 
the judge should direct their 
minds when the interim injunc- 
tion was first before the court. 

That an injunction restraining 
a company from making unlaw- 
ful use of confidential informa- 
tion might or would drive it into 
liquidation was of itself nihil ad 
rent, provided that the Ameri- 
can Cyanamid tests had been 
satisfied (see Potters- Ballotini ).

Feans v Davies and Others 

A consent order that a party 
give the further and better 
particulars specified in $ request 
annexed to the order could not 
be construed as requiring that 
party to give only such particu- 
lars as it could properly have 
been ordered to give had the 
request been contested. 

The Court of Appeal (Lord 
Justice May and Lord Justice 
Nourae) so held on May 20, 
refusing the plaintiff, Mr John 
Han Feans, leave to appeal 
from an order- of Mr Justice 
Swimon Thomas who bad dis- 
missed his appeal from a dis. riel 
registrar's order that he give the 
defendants all the further and 
better particulars referred to in a 
request annexed to a previous 
order under which it had been 


ordered, by consent, that those 
particulars be given. 

LORD JUSTICE MAY said 
that if a pany sought to say that 
some of the particulars re- 
quested could not property be 
ordered, that point had to be 
taken at the hearing of the 
summons. 

If the party consented to an 
order for further and better 
particulars, he waived his right 
to take such a point, and was 
obliged by the order io give all 
the particulars sought in the 
request to which the consent 
order referred.- 

It was not then open to him to 
reply to the request that certain 
particulars could be not be 
ordered as a matter of law or 
practice.

Yorkshire 
are kept 
in check 
by Hill 

By Peter Bail 

SHEFFIELD: Derbyshire have 
scored 290 /or nine tickets 
against Yorkshire. 

Fora county of generally solid 
virtues, Derbyshire has a 
surprisingly cosmopolitan taste 
in cricketers. As well as the 
statutory West Indian last 
bowler, in necept years they have 
included players from Zambia, 
Kenya, a Maltese-born Soot and 
toe only Dane outside Old 
Trafiora aiid An field, aO mas- 
querading as English qualified 

cricketers. 

Yesterday they unleashed the 
buest of their exotic recruits, 
Martin Jean-Jacques, born in 
Dominica and discovered play- 
ing in wildest Shepherds Bush. 
Jean-Jacques, however, had to 
wait to make his mark. 

The more pleghmatic qual- 
ities of Hill, bom in Buxwonh. 
occupied centre stage almost 
throughout all three sessions as 
be held the Derbyshire inning * 
together on a wicket of some 
pace and variable bounce, 
reaching bis hundred in 3<6 
hours. 

Boycott, watching from mid 
off; may have recognised a 
kindred spirit with admiration 
as Hill defied toe bowlers to do 
their worst, remaining unmoved 

Derbyshire were hugely in his 
debt, none of the other batsmen 
establishing themselves with 
any conviction as Dennis, Jar- 
vis. and Hartley made deliveries 
fly, or, on occasion keep low. 
Dennis, in his first match since 
his serious illness last season, 
extracted bounce and move- 
ment to account for both open- 
ers with fine deliveries. 

That set the innings on a slide 
from which it took a long time 
to recover as Morris, after a few 
torrid overs and some pleasing 
shots, at last eased Sidebotiom's 
frustration going Ibw as the 
bowler approached his thou- 
sandth appeal of the season. 

Morris's succes so r s were even 
less successful, but just when it 
looked as if HiD would be left 
stranded, he found support from 
an unlikely source, the equally 
gritty Viking, Morten sen. 
responding to toe seem ofbanle 
to stay with him until he had 

marilffi hie thrw> fi giiwt 

The pair had put on 60 in 31 
overs when a disbelieving 
Mortensen frO to a bat and pad 
catch to allow Jean-Jacques to 
maire his belated appearance. 
Hill, deariy unimpressed by a 
Minor County career best of 39, 
initially dedded to protect him 
but the No. 11 quickly dem- 
onstrated it was unnecessary, !

Surrey, put in to bat and given

wickers for 67 before recovering

which offered some movement

' Freitas took four wickets apiece. 

There were times in his earjy 
days when Cl in ion seemed 


medium-pacers, are going io

As it was, they took eight 
wickets between them. De 
Freitas was toe pick of toe 
attack, bringing toe ball into toe 
bar on an even-paced pitch. Clift 
dealt with the tail, dismissing 
three batsmen in one over, each 
one bowled. The absence of

Athey on top 


By Alan Gibson 


BRISTOL: Warwickshire, with 
all first-innings wickets stand- 
ing. are 320 runs behind 
Gloucestershire. 

Warwickshire won toe toss, 
and put Gloucestershire in, 
presumably because the pitch 
looked green, though in fret it 
played pretty well Stovold was 
caught in the slips when the total 
was 12, but Wright and Athey 
carried on without much bother, 
until Athey was also caught in 
the slips, at 78. From what I 
have seen of him this season, 
Athev is batting very weft- 


drive too many. Then Lloyds 
was very' well caught at mid- 
wicket, a falling catch. Graveney 
was leg-before first balk which 
meant three wickets had fallen 
at the same total, 314. At 325, 
Payne was out aod then 
Lawrence was caught at toe 
wicket; toe innings ended at 352 
in the 96to over. Gloucester- 
shire had done better than they 
had probably expected when 
they started, though not as well 
as they had looked like doing

football- underneath the grim facade in 


England’s entry may 
yet be made through 
the world’s back door 


From Stuart Jones 

Football Correspondent 
Monterrey 

No one predicted that the 
England squad would be in- 
dulging in mental arithmetic 
an hour and a half alter 
stepping inside the World Cup 
finals. The evening following 
their opening tie against Por- 
tugal in the Technoiogico 
Stadium was perhaps destined 
to be filled with statistical 
discussions but the figures 
were supposed to be wrapped 
around the past. 

England were expected to be 
celebrating their seventh 
successive victory or at least 
their twelfth game without 
defeat. Shilton, already the 
holder of one domestic record 
for the number of caps, prom- 
ised to go even further and 
become the first goalkeeper to 
remain unbeaten in five con- 
secutive World Cup matches. 

Instead they went down to 
their first defeat in the compe- 
tition since the infamous day 
here in the same country, in 
the quarter-finals against West 
Germany in Leon 16 years 
ago, and the calculations were 
being projected across the 
future. The hypothetical sums 
are now bracketed around 
second or even third place in 
Group F. 

For a team that were rated 
as the favourites among the 
European contenders, the 
thought that they might even- 
tually go through to the second 
round via a side entrance, if 
not the back door, is uncom- 
fortable but not unacceptable. 
The French and the Germans 
tost their first ties four years 
ago and fete went on to bring 
them together in their unfor- 
gettable semi-final in Seville. 

Bobby Charlton, whose sub- 
stitution by Sir Alf Ramsey in 
1970 was considered one of 
the principal reasons behind 
the 3-2 defeat after extra time, 
has experienced the deep pain 
of disappointment but he has 
not lost hope. "It is not the 
end of the world," he said on 
Tuesday evening. “It could 
even be the best thing that 
could have happened to 
them." 

The potential distraction of 
maintaining a run has been 
removed since England's se- 
quence of triumphs has been 
pulled from under their feet 
As they picked themselves up 
from the floor they held on to 
their positive natures and 
looked forward to the target 
that lies immediately in front 
of them. They must beat 
Morocco tomorrow 
afternoon. 

No shadow of doubt has 
fallen across the imagination 
of Wilkins. "We'll still collect 
four points," he stated. "If 
we’d taken our chances 
against Portugal we wouldn’t 
need to but we will take the 
Moroccans and I can see us 
beating Poland in the last 
game as well. This is a setback 
for sure but it has made us 
even more determined.” 

Lineker, who could have 





added two more goals to his 
total of 40 for the season, 
dismissed England's striking 
deficiency as "just one of 
those days. When you heat the 
goalkeeper you don’t expect a 
defender to be running back to 
clear off the line, do you?"

National rejoicing 
in Portugal 

Horn-bonking motorists 
and singing supporters kept 
much of Lisbon awake over- 
night as they took to the 
streets to celebrate their 
team's 1-0 victory over En- 
gland in the World Cop. 

Overawed by England's 
footballing history, most Por- 
tuguese had given the team 
lime chance; bat the whole 
country came to a standstill as 
people made for the nearest 
televishm.'The victory was all 
the better for being 
unexpected," one taxi driver 
said. “We should be ashamed 
of the little faith we had inonr 
team." 

President Mario Soares 
echoed the feelings of die 
nation when he sent a telegram 
to the captain, Maned 
Bento, warmly congratulating 
his side for their" brilliant 

play”. 

you're never going to get the 
break that you need." 

Don Howe, England's coa- 
ch. took heart from the perfor- 
mance. He suggested that the 
Portuguese, hugging caution 
by employing a defensive 
formation of nine men, could 
never win the competition. 
“What can they do when they 
go a goal down?” he asked. 
"They can't suddenly change 
and throw up more support 
for Gomes. They just sat back 
and hoped.” 

He claimed that England 
had shown more adventure 
than any other nation in the 
competition so far. “We 
played the way a side must do 
if it is going to Win the trophy. 
If we had played badly, then I 
would be worried. But we 
didn't. We deserved to beat 
them." 

■ The optimism is not false. It 
lies like a heavy blanket rather 
than a thin veil around the 
party. The smiles did not 
come easily to the squad's 
faces as they relaxed later in 
their mountain retreat in Salti-

THE ROBSON CAMP THERE LURKS A SNARL OF DEFIANCE THAT MOROCCO MUS T BEWARE 

English mus 




facade, there was an unmis- 
takable snail of defiance. The 
Moroccans should beware. 

“I know how disappointed 
everyone must be at home,” 
Bobby Robson said, “but I 
also know my team and we 
will put it right for them. It 
offends me to lose our record. 
It’s awful but you have to lose 
it sometime and the consola- 
tion is that it happened here 
and not in the knock-out 
stages. We have a chance to 
redeem the situation. 

“1 can tell you the players 
will be in the right frame of 
mind on Friday. We will go for 
their throats. We need goals as 
insurance because Poland, dis- 
appointing and unambitious 
though they were against Mo- 
rocco. will still be physically 
durable and hard to beat. I 
thought the Portuguese were 
frightened of us.” 

Robson is justifiably con- 
cerned about the frailty of his 
central defenders. Not only 
were Butcher and particularly 
Fenwick uncertain in their 
control of Gomes and the 
elusive Carlos Manuel but 
they -were also both booked. 
One more rash challenge from 
either of them will lead to an 
automatic one-match 
suspension. 

Martin, the lone recognized 
cover in the position apart 
from the versatile Stevens, of 
Tottenham Hotspur, has been 
so disturbingly tentative at 
international level that 
England's manager is even 
considering the emergency 
measure or moving the other 
Stevens, of Everton, across 
from right back. As it is, be is 
the one representative who is 
in any danger of not bfeing 
retained tomorrow. 

Nobody denies that 
Ponugal'sgoal, the fourth that 
Shilton has conceded in his 
last 11 appearances, would 
have embarrassed the defence 
of a club, let alone that of an 
international unit. Sansom, 
for once, was left trailing by 
Diamantino and the three 
others in the back four were 
guarding holes in the air as the 
dangerous Carlos Manuel 
stole in at the far post 

“People will talk about 
changes at the back but I will 
not do that, definitely not yet, 
anyway, but it was a bad goal, 
a gift," Robson said. When 
told that a Portuguese delega- 
tion were crossing the road in 
the morning to offer presents 
to the England officials, Rob- 
son inquired whether "they 
might be in return for what we 
gave them today ”

How Papin 
got even 
with odds 

Guanajuato (AP) — Until six 
months ago, Jean-Pierre Papin 
was little knowB in bis country. 
On Sunday, he became the toast 
of France by saving the Euro- 
i pean champions from hnmfli- 
atlon against World Cop 
novices, Canada. 

Papin scored the only goal 11 
minutes from time to give France 
a laboured 1-0 victory over 
Canada in their opening Group 
C match. Until February, nei- 
ther Papin nor anyone in France 
for that matter genuinely 
thought be would even be travel- 
ling to Mexico. But an injury to 
Toure suddenly opened the door. 

"I knew the only way to make 
the squad would be to score a lot 
of goals,” be said after Sunday’s 
match. Papin did just that- He 
scored 10 goals in his last six 
matches for Bruges, the Belgian 
first division side. His perfor- 
mances have led Olympique 
Marseille to step in for his 
services for next season. 

Papin, aged 22, made his 
international debut- is February 
I in the scoreless draw against 
Northern Ireland. Before scor- 
j lug that decisive goal when 
gaming his second cap against 
Canada, he missed several dear 
chances. "I thought 1 was 
damned; I thought It wasn't 
going to be my day," be said. 

Papin, who comes from a poor 
background and is used to 
righting against odds, added:

Send in the ghastly clowns 


It began in 1973. That was the 
first absolutely ghastly night I 
spent watching England play 
football on television. It was the 
night of the 1-1 draw with 
Poland, of Jan ("He’s a down”) 
Tomascewski, the Polish goal- 
keeper. and was the first night I 
abased the England forwards till 
my throat was inflamed. 

1 have beta yellingat England 
forwards ever since. True, I have 
also yelled violent fascist abuse 
at all footballing fore ign e rs , at 
all re fere es (men who have vast 
Swiss bank accounts fed by afi 
the enemies of England), and at 
every linesman who's ever dared 
to churn that one of On Boys 
was offside. Bat the choicest 
abuse I have always saved for 
the England players. 

This readied a peak when L, 
and a b ench of other exiled 
Englishmen, gathered round a 
television set at fan- in the

Northern Ireland were still 
counting the cost yesterday of 
their poor discipline in the 1- 
Idraw in Group D with Algeria. 
Billy Bingham, the manager, 
was displeased with his team's 
retaliation to the spiteful and 
provocative behaviour of the 
North Africans. 

To add to Bingham's prob- 
lems was the tactical naivety at 
the free kick which produced the 
equalizer. He blamed Hamilton 
for following out the decoy from 
the defensive wall which opened 
a bole for Zidane to drive 
through the equaliser. 

Three Irishmen were booked, 
all in the second half — 
Whiteside. Worthington and 
Mcllroy, the captain, who was 
fortunate not to be sent off for 
ttiddng an opponent who had 
teased him throughout Bing- 
ham said that be bad praised 
and scolded Mcllroy for his 
perform an ce.“Il’s always hard 
not to ream in those sort of 
games. 1 know because I've done 
it myself,” be said. 

Considering the tenor of the 
game, be was fortunate to report 
no more than a head injury to 
Donaghy, who required four 
stitches after colliding 
horrifically with Madjer, the 
Algerian winger, who was taken 
to hospital with concussion. 

Bingham said that Whiteside 
was taken off for his own 
protection after collecting a 
booking rather than because of 
any problem with his ankle or 
knee. 

With Bingham criticized in 
some quarters for his team 
selection, notably for giving 
Hamilton his first fill] inter- 
national in 13 months, and the 
team's overall disappointment, 
it was an ill-opportune moment 
for talk of financial rewards. 
While newspapers were asked 
rather belatedly, and hardly at 
all properly, to contribute to a 
"players’ pool" there was a 
report that Bingham was about 
to be offered a lucrative contract 
by Af Nassar. a Saudi Arabian 
dub.

Canadians out 
to impress 

Abasolo (AP) — Two of the 
most experienced members of 
the Canadian squad, Tino 
Lenirri. the veteran goalkeeper, 
and Branko Segota, the forward, 
are keen for the chance to show 
their worth. The pair were 
omitted from Canada’s starting 
line-up in the 1-0 defeat by 
France on Sunday. 

Both have been trying to 
impress the coach, Tony Wait- 
ers, in training. “I feel bad, real 
bad. about the situation," . 
Lettieri said after a two-hour 
practice session. 

Segota played for the last nine

French fight to drain Soviet dynamos 


PHONE 01-253 5376 f OR YOUR‘ BEST BET' COUPONS 


Leon (AP) — Henri MicheL 
the French coach, was still not 
certain yesterday how to counter 
the threat of the "supersonic 
Soviets" when the two sides 
meet in today's crucial Group C 
match. 

The French players said they 
were deeply impressed by the 
Soviet Union’s 6-0 thrashing of 
Hungary on Monday. France, 
the European champions and 
the seeded team in Group C 
struggled to beat Canaria, the 
Worid Cup newcomers. 1-0 on 
Sunday. If the Soviet Union 
beat France, they will he virtu- 
ally assured of winning the 
group and becoming the first 
leam to qualify for the second 
round. 

"I haven't decided my game 


plan yet; I am still thinking 
about ft,” Michel said. “The 
Soviets were supersonic They 
just swept past Hungary. 1 was 
stunned by the way they kept 
their rhythm throughout the 
game. 

"But we have aces, too. If we 
play our game, we can play 
anyone But first we must 
improve our game" 

France will be strengthened in 
defence by the return of Ayache 
and le Roux. Slopyra, the 
forward, is expected to start in 
place of Rocheteau. 

Michel's assistant, Gerard 
Benide. said the way to beat the 
Soviets was lo “limit their 
space, dose them in, pre vent 
them from keeping possession 


and we must cover aB parts of 
the field". 

But some of his own players 
were not so convinced. “If the 
Soviets maintain that rhythm 
until the end of the World Cup, I 
don't see who can beat them," 
said the sweeper, Maxime 
Bossis. “They displayed such 
speed of execution, such collec- 
tive effort.” Tigana said. 

Other French players, how- 
ever. insisted there were ways to 
beat the Soviets. “We won’t give 
them so much space. I am not 
losing any sleep over them." 
Fernandez said. "We can beat 
them at their own game of 
strong defence and .quick 
counter-attacks.” said the cap- 
tain, Platini. 

"We shouldn't really give too 


much significance to their vic- 
tory over Hungary. After 
conceding two goals in fbur 
mi nines, the Hungarians were 
completely disorganized and 
made too many errors," be 
a dftori, 

At their headquarters in 
Irapuaio. the Sonet players 
spent yesterday recuperating. 
Their assistant coach, Nikita

It was evident long before

Everything to lose 


Mexico Gty (AP) — Bulgaria 
and South Korea both know 
they cannot afford to lose when 
they meet in a Group A match at 
the Olympic Stadium here 
today. 

Bulgaria drew 1-1 with the 
defending champions, Italy, m 
their opening game on Sunday 
but were outplayed for long 
periods. A defeat would almost 
certainly end the eastern 
Eoropeans's chances of advanc- 
ing from the group, which also 
in chides the 1978 champions. 
Argentina. South Korea, playing 
in the World Cap finals for only 
the second time, lost 3-1 to 
Argentina in their first match on 
Monday and have still to face 
Italy. 

The former Argentinian coa- 
ch, Cesar Luis Menotti, de- 
scribed the Koreans as 
'"innocent" and said they made 
a lot of m istakes against Argen- 
tina. The Korean camp, under 
their coach, Kim Jung-nam, 
know defeat will spdl the end of 


the team’s already slender hopes 
of reaching the second round. 

Tlie Koreans were bubbling 
with confidence before feeing 
the Argentinians, believing their 
speed would trouble their more 
experienced opponents. Argen- 
tina. however, took the unfamil- 
iar Korean style in their stride. 

The Bulgarians trained lightly 
on Tuesday morning, while the 
South Koreans watched the 
Mexico-Brigjum match. The 
Bulgarian coach. Ivan Vutsov, 
was an interested spectator at 
the Argentina-South Korea 
game. The Bulgarians, eager to 
reach the second round for the 
first time, will be. expected to 
show some improvement. 

The Koreans, while already 
outsiders to progress to the 
second stage, should at least 
avoid the humiliation they suf- 
fered the last time they qualified 
for the finals, in Switzerland in 
1954. On that occasion they lost 
9-0 to -Hungary and 7-0 to 
Turkey.

there wasn't l kept on tailing 
myself that the law of - 
averages detected that there 
woufdeventuaBy be a fine of 
dialogue that did not sound as ff 
it came from a B-movie. 

Again, 1 was proved wrong. 1 
knew that tha reason the 
French characters kept 
addressing each other to 
accented English had something 
to do with the fact that this 
was the EngBsh version of an 

Anglo-French fBm, but 
common sense prevented me 
from accepting the 
explanation Js there anything,

must look beyond Yves

to suggest that there must be 
something enigmatic about her. 
We must took, in fact, to 
Cherie Lunghi who , at leastfe a 

good enough actress to make 
us suspect that there must be 
some dark and dangerous 
comers in that pretty iittie heed 
of hers, and that M Beneyton 
might hare been better off not 
escaping from the POW camp 

and taking refuge with her and 
her smirktog half-sister. 

•With more enthusiasm. I 
can recommend the Stan Tracey 


Bath International Festival (parts 
one and two in stereo on 
RadjoS. with part one on BBC2); 

• the final episode of Caria 
Lane's comedy series Breed

shaky start and Harry Waifs

disruptions they have suffered 
from the weather and 
England's through having had 
their nerve shot to pieces in 
the West Indies during the 
winter. In theory they are 
closely matched and capable, 
if it is not too cold and 
miserable, of providing a very 
good series. 

Notbing untoward hap- 
pened yesterday, despite the 
appearance at the nets of the 
little Indian wizard. 
Sivaramakrishnan, who took 
19 wickets with leg breaks and 
googlies in his first two Tests 
against England in 1984. He is 
said not to be under consider- 
ation for today. 

The going will be soft 
inevitably, and the pitch not 
as firm as the groundsman 
would like. Last year, if you 
remember, it was even worse. 
On the eve of the Test match 
against Australia the outfield 
was waterlogged. But the game 
got under way to a prompt 
start 


I say Gower is on trial 
simply because it has been 
made to seem like that by his 
appointment for only the two 
one-day internationals and 
this one Test match. The 
alternative is that the selectors 
chose this as a way of giving 
him a public warning after 
such a lamentable tour of the 
West Indies. Whichever it is, 
and whatever they may think 
of Gower as a captain, the 
England players like him well 
enough to be fully behind him 
now. To some extent they will 
see it. I expect, as a collective

India have included Binny, 
who will bat at No 8 and do 
his share of the bowling, as he 
did when India won the World 
Cup in 1983. Kapil is waiting 
until this morning to fill his 
last bowling place: it lies 
between Maninder Singh 
(slow left arm). Yadav (off 
breaks) and Prabhakar (medi- 
um pace). 

England, too, have yet to 
decide which of their bowlers 
to leave out. I hope it will not 
be a spinner, though in the 
unseasonable conditions that 
are forecast the temptation 
will be to go for the extra 
seamer. Having put Gower on 
trial, the selectors may allow 
him. in this respect, his per- 
sonal preference. 


trial, not least of their profes- 
sional conscience. 


Although by’ the end of the 
West Indian tour England had 
gone completely to pieces, 
they are, in fact a good 
enough side to go through the 
rest of the year unbeaten. Of 
the three sides they have yet to 
meet — India and New Zea- 
land in England and Australia 
in Australia — New Zealand 
may provide the stillest test. 
India could be the best fun to 
play against For a team in 
need of confidence, as En- 
gland are, India are about 
righL Of their last 42 Test 
matches they have won only 
one — against England in 
Bombay in December 1984 — 


but they still take some 
beating. 

it is worth noting that of 
Gavaskar's 32 Test hundreds 
none has been at Lord's, while 
of Vengsarkaris nine two have 
been. Vengsarkar's achieve- 
ment brackets him with 
Bradman, W.A. Brown, 
Headley and Sobers as the 
only visiting cricketers to have 
made two Test hundreds at 
Lord's. Gavaskar has yet to get 
his head down on this tour, for 
reasons best known to him- 
self. However. I imagine there 
will be no half measures about 
him here. 

Of India's 10 Test matches 
at Lord's, they have lost eight 
and drawn two. The last of 
them, in 1982, was Pringle’s 
and Lamb's first Lamb has 
never missed one since, 
though be is one of those 
whose present tenure is not 
entirely secure. Pringle, still 
England's most “promising" 
all-rounder, is needed again 
now because of Botham's 
absence. 

It was disarming of Pringle 
to say that he realizes the 
futility of his trying to "do a 
Botham''. Even so. he must 
have been very dose to be- 
coming England's Man of the 
Series in the recent one-day 
internationals. 

After the West Indian tour 
and Portugal's victory in Mex- 
ico on Tuesday night, 
England's sporting mettle is in 
question. The Botham busi- 
ness has also left a question 
mark suspended over the 
management of English crick- 
eL The more 1 see of all games 
the more I am inclined to 
think that it is integrity which 
overcomes. England under 
Gower are not so much what 
he makes them as what desti- 
ny does. The likeliest result of 
this first series of the summer 
is a stalemate, the least likely, 
because of India's bonding, an 
English defeat

Giant called in for Bruno 


Frank Bruno will prepare 
for his world heavyweight title 
fight against Tim

The giant Broad was consid-

Lawless said yesterday: 
"Frank wants to be in the best 
shape of his life for the world 
title fight and so he wants to 
work out with the best possi- 
ble sparring partners. We 
could not get a better man 
than Broad. He is similar in

World Cup diary 


A room at the guardhouse 


Mexico City (Reuter) — 
Jorge Valdano, of Argentina, 
who has matured late as a 
world-class player, can stamp 
his name on these World Cup 
finals. A lanky man of 30, he 
tops the goals list after four 
days' play. He is the only 
player to have scored two so 
far in helping Argentina beat 
South Korea 3-1 here on 
Monday. 

ft was only Valdano's 
twelfth cap in an international 
career that was about to 
blossom over 10 years ago 
when his country were prepar- 
ing to stage the 1978 World 
Cap finals but which came to 
an abrupt halt with a move to a 
Spanish second division dub. 

Valdano was among the

The Scotland players could 
be excused for believing that 
they are currently living inside 
Fort Knox. Their hotel among 
the Aztec pyramids, an hour 
away from Mexico City, is 
virtually impregnable due to 
the 120 gun-toting police 
guards swarming around the 
premises. ... 

Even if the players go for a 
swim or a game of table tennis, 
the ever-attendant guards du- 
tifully follow. As one Scottish 
player put it: “The next time I 
go to the toilet I wouldn't be 
surprised to find the guards 
there with me!"

praise them highly enough."

• Scotland's tiny band of 
supporters have earned the 
praise of the Scottish Football 
Association for their behav- 
iour in Mexico City. - 
There are only 1,000 Scot- 
tish followers is the Mexican 
capital and the SFA security 
liaison officer, Alistair Hood; 
said: "There have been no 
reports of any disturbances 
involving our followers. .1 
have spoken to quite a num- 
ber who have made the trip — 
some from as far away as 


drid two seasons ago after a 
long spell with Zaragoza and 
helped them win the Spanish 
title and UEFA Cup last 
month. 


He added: “Of the 1,000 
supporters we are expecting at 
Scotland's games over 500 
have registered with the Scot- 
tish FA, so we are hopeful that 
this World Cup will pass off 
without incident." 

• The World Cup means big 
money for Brazil, who are 
favourites to lift the glittering 
prize in Mexico's Aztec Stadi- 
um on June 29. 

Each member of the Brazil- 
ian team stands to collect 
£65,000 if they become world 
champions, and the thought is 
bringing the best out of their 
most renowned pe/fonner, 
Socrates. 

The tail, bearded Brazilian, 
who abandoned his career as a 
doctor six years agp to concen- 
trate on football said: “As a 
professional player 1 can get 
the financial stability for what 
I really want to do — be a 
doctor for the poor." 

With so much at stake, 
Socrates, aged 32, has altered 
his lifestyle; He has stopped 
drinking and given up smok- 
ing his normal 60 cigarettes a 


day. It is just what the doctor 
ordered. - 


• The putting greens, one of 
the few recreational facilities 
at England's Saltillo Motel 
headquarters, have been dug

A heavy downpour had

as tap water tinned brown and 
toilets refused to flush, the 
local workers grabbed their 
shovels and began digging all 
over the complex in search of 
the trouble. 

Rain rushing down from the 
mountain and sweeping 
across the main road also

Hosts’ goalkeeper praised 


That last campaign made 
him the last arrival in Mexico 
iff the coach Carlos Bflardo’s 
World Cup squad. Bert for 
Bilardo it was better late than 
never. Valdano had served him 
well in Argentina's qualifying 
games last year and he is the 
only out-and-out forward sore 
of his place m the team. 


Pablo Larios, the Mexican 
goalkeeper, was singled out for 
praise by his manager, Bora 
Milutinovic, after the host 
nation’s 2-1 victory over Bel- 
gium m the first match in 
Group B of the World Cup ou

Real where he makes a lethal 
striking partnership with 
Hugo Sanchez, of Mexico.

er in the Spanish League last 
season but he was chased all 
the way by Valdano.

lost 34) to England just before 
the tournament started and 
his error led to Belgium's goal 
scored by Erwin 
Vandenbergh. But 

Mil m movie still insisted: 
“Pablo played a really great 
match." 

Mexico sent their fanatical 
supporters home happy with 
goals by the defender, Fernan- 
do Quirarte, and the national 
hero, Hugo Sanchez. All the 
goals came before half-time 
and the Aztec stadium crowd's, 
expectations weighed heavily 
on the Mexican players. 

“There was great tension 
out there " Mexico’s captain, 
Tomas Boy. said. “We con- 


ceded a goal ata bad time and 
there was some pressure, but 
the team took it in their 
stride." 

Guy Tbys. the Belgian man- 
ager, said: “We started off too 
cautiously and once we were 
behind, we were slow to come 
back. But we played well in the 
second half and I’m disap- 
pointed we didn't take a 
point." 

The Mexicans have been 
under tremendous pressure.to 
perform well on home soil and 
the relief among the players 
was evident when they scored 
twice in the first 38 minutes. 

Quirarte outjumped the 
Belgian defence to bead the 
first m the 23rd minute and 
such was Sanchez’s delight 
that he punted the ball into the 
crowd, an' indiscretion that 
earned him a^eflow card from 
the Argentinian referee, Car- 
los Esposito. 

Sanchez bad his own goal to 
celebrate a quarter of an hour 
later. Belgium's reply came on 


the stroke of half 
tim e-Sanchez's booking was 
somewhat ironic in that 
Esposito allowed many crude 
tackles to go unpunished as 
did the Soviet referee, Valery 
Butenko, in the match in 
Guadalajara. 

The reluctance of referees to 
defend the creative players in 
the tournament has already 
brought condemnation from 


players and managers alike.

itinian, Valdano, 
one of the most articulate 
footballers of his generation,

For the growing strength in

increasingly difficult to win.

Jimmy Greaves was roused to 
new heights of eloquence on 
his programme when the draw 
was announced: “What a terri- 
ble blow for the old Jocks, eh? 
No, honestly, I feel real serty

demeanor was only slightly 
marred by the fact that he was

And really, tins draw

Jocks - Scots, I mean - are 
perfectly capable of destroying 
their own dances. To throw 
them into a group where they 
-have no chance at all could 
have terrible repercussions. I 
mean, they might qualify. 
That would be a very hard 
thing to bear. 


The Scots are best at bril-
