THURSDAY JUNE 12 1986 



By Stewart Temfler, Crime Reporter 

A five-man Provisional Brighton bombing, for which court and shouted “the British 


IRA unit, including Patrick 
Magee, the Brighton bomber, 
was convicted at lheCeniral 
Criminal Court yesterday of 
plannniog a bombing cam- 
paign last summer on pons 
resorts and targets in London, 
which could have led to 
bloodshed, havoc -; and 
evacuations. 

Asthelastofthedefendents 
was found guilty, he . fought 
with prison officers and the 
public gallery erupted with 
shouts in Gaeh'c and English. - 

One of the biggest ana most 
important IRA trials since the 
start of the Ulster troubles 
ended with cries of “Our day 
wifi come" and “Ireland mil 
be Ireland when England is 
destroyed" hurled at the emp- 
tying court. 

After the jury bad returned 
its verdicts the judge said that 
he would sentence the defen- 
dants at a later date. 

During the trial of nearly six 
weeks the court was told .that 
bombs were to be planted at 
16 targets, of which 12 were 
resorts or ports. The first 
bomb with a delayed timer 
had been placed in a London 
hotel overlooking the Royal 
Mews at Buckingham Palace 
when police in Glasgow arrest- 
ed Magee and others. 

A bomb calendar showed 
plans for a bomb in Brighton 
on the day the Queen was 
visiting, another was. due to 
detonate in Great Yarmouth ! 
the day after her visit there 
and the last bomb -was timed 
to explode in Southampton 
during Cowes Week. 

The plot was described as 
outrageous by Crown counsel 
and Mr Justice Borebam, in 
his summing up, saxl that the . 
results would have been- more 


Magee alone was charged, and 
the conspiracy last year to 
plant 16 bombs. 

On Tuesday, Magee, aged 
35, was found guilty of seven 
charges arising from the 
bombing of the Grand Hotel,- 
Brighton, during the Conser- 
vative Party’s annual confer- 
ence in 1984. 

At toe beginning of toe trial 
two other men pleaded guilty. 
One man, Donal Craig, aged 
28, pleaded guilty to bong 
pan of toe conspiracy, and 
Shaun McShane, aged 32, 
pleaded guilty to aiding, abet- 
ting, and procuring for four of 
toe convicted defendants.

short as prison officers began 
to struggle with him. It was at 
this point that toe calls began 
from the gallery as Sbeuy 
disappeared down toe stairs to 
the cells with three officers 
bolding on to him. 


Earlier the judge had fold 
the jury he did not intend to 
deal with toe defendants for a 
few days because he had other 
matters to deal with in toe 
case. The verdicts came after 
more than 12 hours of deliber- 
ation on the 25th day of toe

Yesterday toe jury of six 
men and six women found 
Magee guilty of the conspiracy 
with Gerard McDonnell

The case put to the court 
was that after toe Brighton 
bombing in which five people 
were killed and 34 injured, 
Magee planted a bomb at toe 
Rubens Hotel last year. Other 
bombs were destioed for ho- 
tels and beaches on timers 
lasting 24 or 48 days, placed 
by two squads within the unit .

Seven people, including an 
alleged leader of toe Irish 
National Liberation Army,

Minister’s 
daughter 
found dead 


ByCtaigSeton 
Fire Oxford University stu- 
dents were arrested yesterday 
and were being questioned last 
night by detectives conducting 
a “criminal investigation" into 
the death of Olivia Channoo, 
aged 22, daughter of Mr Full 
Chanson, the Secretary of 
State for Industry. She was 
found dead after a late-night 
party in the city. . 

A senior Oxford police offi- 
cer said last night: “It is not a 
murder iuqmry J — not ^rthis 
stage". MBs Chaimoo, a stu- 
dent at St Hilda's College in 
Oxford, was found slumped 
dead - in bed ..in . an 
undergraduate's study at 
Christ Church in the city after 
attending a late-night party to 
celebrate the end of final 
modern history examinations. 

Drag Squad officers were 
called into the inquiry to 
investigate reports that hard 
drugs may have been taken at 
the party, but last night offi- 
cers said there was no evidence 
at this stage to suggest that 
Miss Channon had died as a 
result of dross. 

InspTony Collins of Oxford 
police declined to say if all fire 
being questioned were stu- 
dents who had attended the 
late-night celebrations which 
went on into the early hours 
yesterday. 

Mr Channon, aged 50, was 
in London when be was told of 
his daughter's death and he 
immediately travelled to Ox- 
ford. A post-mortem examina- 
tion yesterday proved 
inconclusive and further tests 
were being conducted to deter- 
mine the cause of Miss 
Channon’s death, bat initial 
indications suggested that she 
could have choked on her own 
vomit 

Mr Peter Winship, an As- 
sistant Chief Constable (Op- 
erations) of Thames Valley 
Police, said last night: “The 
body of a young woman was

Alliance pledge to 
heal Polaris rift 


By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 



Miss Olivia Channon: found 
dead in college study. 


Dr David Owen and Mr 
David Steel agreed last night 
that toe serious differences 
between their parties over 
Britain's independent nuclear 
deterrent would have to be 
settled before the next general 
election to avoid what the 
Liberal leader called a rupture 
in the Alliance. 

Speaking after toe publica- 
tion of the long-awaited report 
of the Alliance's Joint Com- 
mission on Defence, which 
after k' two-year study left 
open toe question of whether 
Polaris should be replaced, 
both leaders agreed to contin- 
ue the search for agreement 

But despite toe wide mea- 
sure of consensus achieved 
between the parties on other 
main defence issues, including 
toe cancellation of Trident, 
cruise missiles and American 
bases in Britain there was no 
obvious sign last night of how 
the gap on Polaris can be 
bridged either between toe two 
parties or within the SDP 
leadership. 

Dr Owen, toe SDP leader, 
made clear at a Westminster 
press conference with Mr 
Sled, leader of toe Liberals, 
that he has no intention of 
moving from SDP policy 
which says that toe party will 
not abandon Britain's existing 
nuclear capability. 

He said of the commission 
report: “It leaves a number of 
questions unanswered and a 
number of issues unresolved. I 
think they will have to be 
resolved before the next 
election. 

“I think it is necessary to 
say you wish to keep your 
existing nuclear capability, 
unless there has been some 
dramatic unprecedented 
change in the arms control 
difdate at toe time of toe 
election," he said. 

Mr Steel agrees with toe 


commission's formula that a 
derision on “whether, and if 
so how" to replace Polaris 
should be delayed. He empha- 
sized that it would be wrong to 
take up “cast-iron attitudes" 
now. But when he was asked 
whether he could go into toe 
next election saying he would 
cancel Trident without saying 
what he would put in its place 
Mr Steel replied: “No. That is' 
not my position. I believe that 
when toe next election comes 
have- to have specific 


we 


answers to these questions. 
The election is not yet on us.” 

Earlier, at toe launch of toe 
commission report Mr John 
Cartwright, toe SDP defence 
spokesman, said that on Po- 
laris there was ground to be 


Report details 


bridged. “I hope we are not 
going to leave it here, " he 
said. “I do not believe you can 
go into an election with toe 
situation as it stands at toe 
moment." 

Both leaders are resigned to 
the issue dominating their 
party conferences in toe au- 
tumn. One of toe next steps is 
likely to be the establishment 
of a study to look into the 
technical options for replacing 
Polaris, without prejudging 
any decision over “whether” it 
should be replaced. 

Mr Steel, who will face 
demands from party activists 
at toe party council meeting in 
Wigan this weekend not to 
give way to Dr Owen, hinted 
last night however, that toe 
decision on what goes into toe 
Alliance election manifesto on 
Polaris might be decided be- 
tween him and Dr Owen. He 
said that he and Dr Owen 
might have access to confiden- 
tial information available to 
them on privy council terms 
which their colleagues would 
not have.

Cousins, big man of the unions, dies 


By Patricia Clough 

Mr Ftank. Cousins, for. 17 
years leader of the Transport 
and General Workers 1 Union 
and one of the most powerful 
men hi Britain, died yesterday 
of a heart a ttack aged 81.: : . . 

A big man and dramatic 
speaker, he dominated the 
labour scene from, hb election 
in 1956. 

His . membership . of 
1,300,000, spread across a 
vast range of trades, constitut- 
ed one-eighth of toe .trade

wage restraint, played a. lead- 
art hi toe labour disputes 
of toe 1950s and 1960s and 


resisted attempts to penalize 
strikers. 

He firmly believed, howev- 
er, in strike action only as a 
kit resort and is credited with 
dbmg much to maintain indus- 
trial peace. 

He shifted the union firmly 
.to the left of tbe ration 
spectrum, leading tbe Labour 
left-wing's battles to achieve 
mam mal disarmament and to 

-retain danse 4 of the party 
constitution on common own- 
ership of the means of produc- 
tion, distribution . and 
exchange. 

' He became a familiar public 

figure, commenting on the 
nation'^ affairs on television, 
tn the press and In pobik 


speeches. Deeply devoted to 
his union and to his form of 
socialism, he was also a 
difficult man to deal with and 
frequently upset even fellow- 
unionists with his aggressive- 
ness and unpredictability. 

Possibly to remove this - 
obstreperous figure from the 
union, scare, Mr Harold Wil- 
son made him Minister of 
Technology in 1964. But he 
did not cafe for government or 
membership of tbe House of 
Commons and In 1966 he 
resigned over -the wage freeze 
and returned to tbe union. 


Frank Coosina bad the clas- 
sic working-class background 
for a trade muon leader of his 
day. Born the eldest son in a 


family of 10 children in 
BntoelL, Nottinghamshire, be* 
left school at 14 and became a 
coal miner. He went on to drive 
long-distance coal lorries and 
In 1938 became a full-time 
.trade union official. 

Paying tribute, Mr Neil 
Kinnock said last night “I am 
deeply sorry to bear of the 
death of Frank Cousins, who 
was a great friend, a real 
comrade and a big man In 
every way." 

Mr Ron Todd, toe current 
muon general secretary, said: 
“The TGWU has lost one of 
its greatfeaders and toe trades 
onion and labour movement 
has lost a fighter for many of 
the policies we now porsne.”

Hu confident 
on future of 
links with UK 


By Rodney Cowton 


Mr Hu Yaobang. General 
Secretary of the Central Com- 
mittee of toe Chinese Com- 
munist Party, last night 
clasped his hands above his 
head and said there were 
“bright prospects" for rela- 
tions between Britain and 
China. 

Mr Hu constantly gesticu- 
lated and broke into smiles as 
he spoke of the “sincere and 
friendly'* talks he had had 
with Mrs Thatcher during his 
four-day visit, which ended 
yesterday. 

After lunching with the 
Queen, he promised her a 
“warm and ceremonious" 
welcome when she visits Chi- 
na in October and said he had 
invited the Prime Minister. 
Mrs Thatcher, to visit again. 

.Another member of Mr 
Hu's delegation. Mr Zhou 
Nan. Vice-Foreign Minister, 
expressed satisfaction with the 
way last year's Sino-British 
joint declaration on Hong 
Kong was being implemented. 
The Chinese Government was 
determined to implement the 
agreement to toe letter, and it 
was his conviction that the 
British. Government shared 
that intention. Mr Zhou said. 

Mr Hu. aged 77. said he 
would start to reduce his 
responsibilities for major slate 
affairs next vear. 






East seeks lm 
European 
troops cutback 


From Roger Boyes, Budapest 


The Warsaw Pact yesterday 
proposed a major package of 
arms cuts which could lead to 
the demobilisation of 1 mil- 
lion soldiers from East and 
West, toe scrapping of weap- 
onry, and sharp reductions in 
tactical aircraft. 

It also suggested that the 
whole of. Europe — not only 
Nato and the Warsaw Pact — 
could establish a special fo- 
rum to discuss toe cuts. 

Tbe offer was made in an 
appeal to Nato and the West 
issued after the end of a two- 
day Warsaw Pact summit in 
Budapest. 

The iniative is essentially a 
Soviet one and was outlined to 
Moscow’s allies on Tuesday 
by toe Soviet leader, Mr 
Mikhail Gorbachov. 

The proposal is that both 
alliances first cut their troops 
by 100,000 to 150.000 over toe 
next two years. Tactical air- 
craft could be included in this 
phase. 

Following this, the land and 
tactical air forces in East and 
West should be reduced by 25 
per cent by toe early 1990s. 

That would mean toe reduc- 
tion of more than 500,000 
troops on either side; toe 
withdrawal, in other words, of 
I million troops from Europe. 
Other European countries 
could join in this process. 

“Simultaneously with con- 
ventional armament,” says 
the appeal, rather vaguely, 
“practical nuclear weapons 
with a range of up to 1,000 
kilometres should also be 
reduced." 

To supervise the troop cuts, 
toe Warsaw Pact is suggesting 
an international consultative 
committee formed with Nato 
and Warsaw Pact representa- 
tives as well as delegates from 
neutral and non-aligned Eu- 
rope. Data on troop strengths 
both in toe area oftoecuts and 
m toe remaining units could 
be exchanged in toe frame- 


work of this committee. Com- 
mittee members would also be 
allowed to make on-site in- 
spections in East and WesL 
“For purposes of such su- 
pervision, control posts, com- 
posed of representatives of toe 
international consultative 
committee, would be set up at 


major railway centres, airports 
and harbours," said the 


appeal 

The arms proposals could 
be discussed in three different 
ways, say the Warsaw Pact 
leaders. First, in Stockholm at 
toe current European talks on 
confidence and security build- 
ing measures. Second a spe- 
cial forum with tbe 
participation of all the Euro- 
pean states plus the United 
States and Canada could be 
established.

Or, finally, toe Vienna force 
reduction talks could be ex- 
panded to include other Euro- 
pean slates who do not belong 
to toe two military alliances. 
At present toe Vienna talks 
deal only with toe seven 
countries on toe Easi-West 
divide. 

Die Warsaw Pact package 
will probably stumble against 
some scepticism in toe WesL 
In the first place the West 
regards the Soviet Union as 
having a large preponderance 
of conventional troops in 
Europe. To reduce troops 
equally from East and West 
would merely perpetuate toe 
East's advantage at a lower 
level. 

This was one of the funda- 
mental problems of toe talks 
on force reductions in Vienna, 
which have been bogged down 
in discussions on exactly how 
many troops toe Soviet bloc 
has and how, reliably, to

‘Complacency’ at 
tin market crisis 


Tbe Government has been 
“unduly complacent” about 
toe collapse of tin prices and 
toe consequences for Cornwall 
and has failed to provide 
adequate information to Par- 
liament. an all-party Com- 
mons committee says in a 
report to be published today. 

The Trade and Industry 
Select Committee urges toe 
Government to give financial 
help to Cornish tin mines 
threatened with closure. 

It describes as “inadequate 
given tbe scale of toe 
problem" the £1 million the 
Government has offered to 
toe Penzance and St Ives area 
after the closure of the Geevor 
tin mine last week. 

Commenting on the 
Government's response to an 
earlier committee report, the 


committee says: “toe Govern- 
ment has failed to deal with 
our contention that the cost of 
immediate aid for toe Cornish 
mines would be less than (he 
cost of unemployment and 
social security benefits, which 
will have to be paid for many 
years if the tin industry in 
Cornwall collapses.” 

Tin prices fell sharply earii- 
er this year when the Interna- 
tional Tin Council, a price 
support organisation of which 
Britain is a member, ran out of 
money, leaving gross debts of 
£900 million, some of which 
is owed by Britain. 

The Government's reply to 
the committee's earlier report 
reveals that toe Bank of 
England warned the City 
about toe state of toe ITCs 
finances.

Rolls-Royce confident 
of winning £ 700 m 
engine order from BA 


THE TIMES THURSDAY JUNE 12 1986 


Delay as 
miners win 
back £8m 
in assets 






Sir Francis Tombs, chair- 
man of Rolls-Royce, said yes- 
terday that he expected to win 
the vital £700 million order 
for aircraft engines from Brit- 
ish Airways. 

He dismissed speculation 
that British Airways preferred 
the US-built General Electric 
engines or that the Govern- 
ment would be forced to 
intervene to stop the order 
going overseas. 

But he gave a warning that 
loss of ihe contract would 
affect the privatization of 
Rolls-Royce, planned for the 
first half of next year. 

Mrs Margaret Thatcher has 
refused to intervene in British 
Airways' decision on which 
engines should power its new 
Boeing jumbo jets. The Prime 
Minister would undoubtedly 
face the same hostility from 
her backbenchers if the order 
went to the United States as 
over the sale of Land Rover. 
But she has declared her wish 
that Rolls-Royce should win 
“on merit”. 

Sir Francis told the Com- 


By Sheila Gann, Political Staff 


mons' Trade and Industry 
Select Committee: “I think the 
loss of the British Airways 
order to an offshore company 
would be a very serious mat- 
ter - not just because of the 
value of the order. Bui I do not 
regard it as a likely outcome” 
He said British Airways' 
aircraft had been powered by 
Rolls-Royce engines for some 
time and the company had 
been “very' loyal customers". 


Questioned by Mr Robert 
McCrindle. Conservative MP 


McCrindle. Conservative MP 
for Brentwood and On gar. 
about reports that British 
Airways favoured the General 
Electric engine, be replied: “l 
do not think that is being 
suggested with any authority. 
BA invited bids like any other 
company. Our bid and others 
have only just gone in. Discus- 
sions have not begun I do not 
really think any speculation is 
well-founded. 

“I cannot see that BA is 
anywhere near reaching a 
decision.” he said. 

Mr Ralph Robins, the 
company's managing director. 


added: “We start off with a 
machine which is entirely 
competitive with that of Gen- 
eral Electric and Pratt and 
Whitney” 

Sir Francis also told MPs 
that the price of Rolls-Royce 
shares should not be affected 
by the loss of one order. 

“Bui ihe City does respond 
to success and failure. It is an 
emotional sort of market” 

Sir Francis refused to be 
drawn into say how govern- 
ment intervention to force 
British Airways to give him 
the order would affect privati- 
zation plans. 

Making clear his enthusi- 
asm for taking Rolls-Royce 
into the private sector. Sir 
Francis said he believed the 
Government would retain a 
golden share, giving it special 
veto powers, because of the 
defence implications. 

There was no intention of a 
cash injection by the Govern- 
ment before privatization, but 
he would expected to raise 
some extra money, he added.

Targets for new 
jails in doubt 


Mr P.S. Khabra. president 
of the Indian Workers’ Associ- 
ation, used the word “ext- 
remist” not “thuggish” to 
describe elements of the .All 
India Sikh Students Federa- 
tion (The Times. April 3). 


The failure of the Home 
Office to build prisons of the 
. type most urgently needed and 
in the right place has put in 
doubt its target of ending jail 
overcrowding by I990,the 
Commons Committee of Pub- 
lic Accounts says. 

“We are dismayed that even 
when the Home Office’s ob- 
jective of matching iota! 
places and prison population 
is achieved, there will still be 
overcrowding in some 
prisons,” the all-party group 
of MPs says in its report. 

The MPs also criticized the 


court building programme 
saying that “the measures 
taken by the Lord 
Chancellor's Department in 
increasing the number of 
judges and courtrooms, have 
so far produced no more than 
a marginal improvement”.

The National Union of 
Mineworicers was yesterday 
given back control of its 
£8 million funds seized by the 
High Court during the pit 
strike. But, because of a 
pending N(JM appeal over 
part of the ruling, the return of 
assets will not be immediate. 

Mr Justice Mervyn-Davies 
said that he was satisfied that 
in the wake of the appoint- 
ment of new trustees the 
union’s property would be in 
i safe hands, and the time had 
■ come to discharge the court- 
i appointed receiver, Mr Mi- 
chael .Arnold. 

However, he refused an 
application by the union that 
the trustees should be allowed 
to take control of a breach of 
trust action being brought by 
Mr Arnold on their behalf 
against miners' leaders and 
{Kinks. 

He said the action to make 
certain banks, the miners* 
president, Mr Arthur Scargill, 
vice-president, Mr Mick Mo 
Gahey. and general secretary, 
Mr Peter Heath field, personal- 
ly responsible for more than 
£100.000 losses arising from 
attempts to put assets out of 
reach of the court by moving 
them abroad “will be best 
handled by the receiver”. It 
was in the anion's best inter- 
ests to recover “the greatest 
amounts possible”. 

The order to discharge Mr 
Arnold, who was appointed in 
November 1984. will not 
come into effect until a formal 
order bas been drawn up and 
approved by the judge. In the 
meantime, the NUM is plan- 
ning an appeal over the trustee 
action to try to remove Mr 
Arnold completely. 

The judge also granted an 
application by the Notting- 
hamshire area of the Union of 
Democratic Mineworicers that 
the receiver should pay 
£36.317 to cover costs and 
money it claims is owed by the 
NUM in a dispute over 
members’ subscriptions.

Cabinet expected 
to seal fate of 
Ulster assembly 


By Richard Ford 


The Cabinet is likely to 
agree today to the dissolution 
of the Northern Ireland As-

sembiy, ending the latest in a 
series of ill-feted attempts to 
bring about devolution m the 
province. 

The formal announcement 
of the assembly's lingering 
Hgflth indicates that ministers 
see little prospect of reaching 


agreement on a locally-based 
administration, in the near 
future. ’ 

Minis ters and officials are 
prepared for a lengthy period 
of direct rule, in spite ofhopes 
that, in the wake of die Anjjlo- 
Irish Agreement, Unionists 
would be encouraged to mini- 
mize its operation by negotiat- 
ing, with nationalists, a form 
of devolution, based at Stor- 
mont . . 

Although Cabinet ministers 
have been concerned at de- 




Irish divorce 
move attacked 


priv ing Unionists of a plat- 
form from which to oppose 
the agreement, officials are 
not pr e p ar ed to hold elections, 
due in October when its four- 
year term ends, when there is 
no prospect of agreement on 
devolution. 

Without agreement on a 
form of local administration, 
elections for a second term 
would be no more than a 
referendum on the deal which 
gives Dublin a consultative 
role in the North.

As you must have noticed, interest rates everywhere 
are falling. Some more than others. 

So if you’ve got money invested in a bank or building 
society ifs time you took a careful look at how much 
it's eamms. 

You might decide it’s time you moved some of your 
savings into a more profitable kind of account 

The Woolwich Capital Account could boost your interest 
considerably. 5500 or more invested here will earn you no 
less than 7.80% net p.a. which compounds to 7.95% net p.a. 
if you leave the interest in to earn more interest 

That’s equivalent to 1120% gross for basic rate taxpayers. 
And monthly income is available if you want it 
Opening an account is easy. 

The minimum investment is 5500. 

Provided you give at least 90 days’ notice, you can 
withdraw up to 5250 in cash or 530,000 by cheque. If, on 
tiie other hand, you want instant access to your money, 
unless you leave over 510,000 in your account you will lose 
90 days’ interest (Instant withdrawals are limited to 5250 in 
cash or 530,000 by cheque. And larger sums just take a few 
days to arrange) 

Think about it At least some of your savings should be 
earning our top rate. And you can always keep a smaller 


reserve in one of our higher interest instant access accounts 
like Prime or Cashbase.

Kinnock ‘cannot Attempt to 
help’ on Wapping be ^J"^ s 

By Peter Davenport 


Mr Neil Kinnock, the La- 
bour leader, said yesterday 
there was no new initiative he 
could lake to help to find a 
solution to the News Interna- 
tional dispute over Wapping. 

■Although be thought it pos- 
sible there could be discus- 
sions with the trade unions, he 
believed tbe ball was now in 
the management's court. 

Mr Kinnock was speaking 
in Scarborough as he arrived 
to address the conference of 
Sogat '82, whose members 
form tbe majority of the 5.500 
dismissed News International 
strikers. 

He was asked if he had any 
moves to make towards re- 
solving the long dispute, and 
replied: “No. 1 do not think 
that new initiatives lie in my 
hands. But I think it is 
possible there could be some 
discussion with the trade 
unions.” 

In his address to the confer- 
ence, which received a stand- 
ing ovation, Mr Kinnock 
expressed concern about the 
current and potential power of 
press and broadcasting owner- 
ship. It was time, he said, to 
think seriously about a new 
law requiring media owners to 
be' British citizens. 

Mr Kinnock also warned 
the management of News 
International not to underesti- 
mate the determination of the 
dismissed printing workers to 
continue their strike. 


yesterday urged print workers 
who rejected the News Inter- 
national package aimed at 
settling the 20-week Wapping 
dispute to “think again”. 

“I have a feeling that Bren- ! 
da Dean and Norman Willis j 
think they should.” he told a 
-lunch in- London organized by 
the Press Assocation, Britain's 
national news agency. “And I 
hope that, if so, their wiser 
councils will prevail.”

• A key element of the offence 
is likely to be the motive; that 
is. that trespassers intend to 
stay on the land rather than 
pass through it. 

Judges are being consulted 
on two reforms to civil proce- 
dure: first, a speeding up of 
orders to repossess fend, 
which can at present take five 
days. 

Second, simplifying the pro- 
cedure by which a court 
direction roust be obtained to 
avoid serving defendants, per- 
sonally with summonses,

gest that landowners in such

Mines to stay in FaUdands pun 


By Rodney CoWton, Defence Correspondent 


Foer years after the fighting 
in foe Falkland Islands, foe 
Ministry of Defence has for 
the time being abandoned its 
efforts to find a means iff 
safely clearing the minefields 
laid (hiring the conflict. 

There are estimated to be 
about 13*500 mines ia foe 
Falklands, but the ministry’s 
efforts have been c on centrated 
on trying to find a means of 
detecting foe 10 per cent or so 
of them which are almost 
entirely made of plastic and, 
therefore, undetectable by tra- 
ditional means. 

Until those mines are de- 
tectable tbe minefields cannot 
be safely deared. 

Last year hopes were raised 
that a system of transmitting a 
radar pest into die gromd 
would produce a reliable 
method. 

But Mr George Younger, 
Secretary of State for Defence, 
in a written answer yesterday 
told foe Commons that “de- 
spite considerable progress 
there would still be a tag way 
to go in terms of time and 
money before a practical solu- 
tion could be placed in the 
Army’s hands which would be 
sufficiently reliable and salt- 
able for use in peacetime. 
Funding of the present re- 
search programme will there- 
fore cease.” 

The decision is a resell of 
pressure on the defence bud- 
get, and the project does not 
have a sufficiently h^h mili- 
tary priority to command 
funds. 


It is thoogbt that about £6 
million to £7 million has bear 
spent so far in tbe search for a 
solution. 


Although the pulsed radar 
remains an encouraging possi- 
bility, tbe estimated costs of 
developing it are understood to 
have risen substantially so 
that It is thought it might cost 
another £20 million folly to 
develop hand prodace enough 
equipment, spares and oflm 
back-op so that the nfinefieldg 
could be deared in a 10-year 
programme. 

Mine clearance was carried 
out for several months in 1982 
and 1983, and abort LSOO 
mines are thought to have been 
removed. But five soldiers 
were injured, and it was an- 
nounced m Aagnst 1983 tint 
clearance operations would be 
suspended until a completely 
safe and reliable means of 
detecting plastic mines had 
been foaad. 

A large number of possible 


solutions to foe minefields was 
put forward, many by mem- 
bers of tiie pnbhc. About 20 of 
those were selected for further 
study, and foe use of poised 
radar emerged as the most 
encouraging possibility. 

Among the other methods of 
detection explored have been 
tbe use of dogs, and the 
identification <rf anomalies 
caused by mines in foe Earth’s 
magnetic field. 

At one stage it was thought 
the minefields could be de- 
stroyed by burning peat in 
which most of than lie, thus 
causing foe mines to explode. 
Unfortunately some muxs ex- 
ploded quicker than others, 
and the explosions strewed 
unexploded urines around the 
area of operations.

Aires Strategic Studies Insti- 
tute are about to begin work

ment of King's College, Lon- 
don, on a joint study of the

Sow more 
oats plea 
to farmers 

By John Young 
Agriculture Correspondent 

Fanners were yesterday 
urged to grow more oats, one 
of the few crops for which 
domestic demand exceeds 
supply. 

Mr Bob Black, president of 
the British Oat and Barley 
Millers Association, said that 
it was an opportunity to grow 
what the market required. 

Oats were Britain's domi- 
nant crop until the horse was 
replaced by the internal com- 
bustion engine. Last year pro- , 
duction rose .to 590,000 
tonnes, but some 15.000 j 
tonnes had to be imported. 

That year acreage is official- 
ly estimated to be down by a 
quarter, and some crops were 
lost during the severe winter 
weather. The main extra de- 
mand is for high-quality oats 
for human consumption, 
which is attributable partly to 
the growing popularity of

Schools told 
Aids pupils 
‘are no risk’ 

By Colin Hughes 

The Government yesterday issued advice to 
aU schools that there is “no apparent” risk of 
children with Aids (acquired immune deficien- 
[ cy syndrome) transmitting the disease to fellow 
j pupils. 

Infected children “should be allowed to 
attend school freely and tie treated in the same 
way as other pupils", a guidance document 
from the Department of Education and Science 
says. 

The circular is designed to counter prejudice 
against Aids-infected children which the 
department blames on "inaccurate publicity” 
and follows cases in the United States and 
Australia in which children have been driven 
ont of their home town or school. I 

For that reason the department also advises 
that the fact of a child being infected should be 
kept contidentiaL "The number of people, 
including teachers, who are aware that a child 
is infected should be restricted, and should be 
rigorously confined to those 1 who need to 
know.” 

But staff and schools should now consider 
teaching pupils about Aids and its transmis- 
sion, “bearing in mind that the publicity given 
to the disease is bound to have reached 
schoolchildren, and that this is an issue about 
which many parents will have strong feelings”. 

The report emphasizes that health education 
about Aids will be a “delicate and difficult 
task” needing “considerable care and 
sensitivity" to match the maturity of children's 
understanding. 

“Schools should see H as part of their task, 
in the context of personal and social education, 
to consider with pupils some of the broader 
questions associated with the transmission of 
infection, including the health risks of promis- 
cuous sexual behaviour, whether heterosexual 
or homosexual.” 

They should also learn abont the risks to 
drag users and haemophiliacs. 

Infected children can participate without 
risk in most lessons, but head teachers should 
be active in discouraging blood mingling, ear 
piercing and tattooing.

Shortfall in number 
of graduates feared 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


There will too few graduates 
to meet the needs of the 
nation's economy in the next 
few years, unless the Govern- 
ment changes its policy on 
higher education. London 
University's careers advisory 
board says in its annual 
report. 

The number of graduates 
with first degrees from Lon- 
don University dropped by 3 
per cent in 1985. compared 
with 1984, it says. 

The Standing Conference of 


Employers of Graduates has 
estimated that until 1990. at 
least Britain will need 3.000 
more graduates each year than 
the universities can supply. 

Within that shortfall there 
will be an even more serious 
shortage of graduates in engi- 
neering, technology and phys- 
ics. Graduates are also show- 
ing declining interest in 
teaching careers, particularly 
in teaching mathematics and 
physics. 


Scientist 
says boss 
lured her 
into room 

Doctor Cathy Sinclair yes- 
terday told how one of her 
bosses lured her into an 
Oxfordshire hole! room aiid 
tried to kiss her when she went 
to meet him to discuss a 
project. 

The 37-year-oJd personnel 
adviser at Esso's chemical 
plant at Abingdon. Oxford- 
shire. is claiming the company 
breached the Sex Discrimina- 
tion Act by conducting a 
campaign of harrassment and 
intimidation against her. 

On the third day of an 
industrial tribunal hearing at 
Reading. Berkshire, she said 
in a statement: “1 went to his 
room to say I had arrived. 

"I said 1 would like to. but 
as soon as I went in. the 
gentleman in question 
grabbed hold of me and 
proceeded to kiss me. I man- 
aged to extricate myself from 
the gentleman and get out of 
the ruom : *' 

Dr Sinclair, of Higgs Close, 
East Hagboume, Oxfordshire, 
said that they returned to her 
superior's hotel where "he 
again asked me to stay the 
night with him”. 

She made the allegations 
while cross-examining plant 
manager Mr Colin Titman. 
but he replied: "The gentle- 
man denies such conversa- 
tions happened." 

Later Dr Sinclair's former 
boss. Mr Ron Owen, told the 
hearing: "i could believe that 
one or two managers had anti- 
feminine prejudices and had 
discriminated against her on 
the odd occasion. 

"But what 1 found very 
difficult to believe was that 
they were all collaborating 
together because she was a 
female." 

Dr Sinclair, who is married, 
has also claimed how a tutor 1 
crept into her hotel room at 
lam during a company train- 
ing course and asked: "Can I 
sleep with you?" 

Later Mr David Dunholm. 
the company’s employee rela- 
tions manager and Dr 
Sinclair's supervisor, told how 
he investigated her claims that 
a training course tutor crept 
into a hotel room and asked 
for sex. 

He said: “1 spoke to the 
individual and he denied the 
incident. He is not a company 
employee. He is a consultant 
The company found it diffi- 
cult to lake any specific action 
as it was his word against 
hers." 

The case continues.

S Africa sanctions • Disarmament • Higher benefits 



Commonwealth 
ritain united in 



to apartheid 


SOUTH AFRICA 


Mrs Thaicher should be per- 
suaded to abandon her “pig- 
headed*' opposition to sanctions 
against South Africa, Mr Denis 
Healey, chief Opposition 
spokesman on foreign and 
Commonwealth affairs, told Sir 
Geoffrey Hone, Secretary of 

State for Foreign and Common- 
wealth Affairs, during Com- 
mons questions. 

The Prime Minister's oppo- 
sition to sanctions had identi- 
fied Britain as the only protector 
of apartheid in the outside 
world, had split the European 
Community and now threat- 
ened to break up the Common- 
wealth itself. Mr Healey said. 
Sir Geoffrey Howe rejected Mr 
Healey's comments as inaccu- 
rate and said the EEC. the 
Commonwealth and the Gov- 
emment positions were in line. 
Asked if he would make it his 
policy, as President of the EEC 
Council, to i milieu: a review of 
relations between member 
slates and South Africa, he said 
the foreign ministers of the 12 
regularly discussed the situation 
in South Africa at their meet- 
ings. The next meeting would 
take place on June 16. 

Foreign ministers of the 12 
would continue to meet to 
review policy during the British 
presidency. 

Mr Tom Cox (Tooting. Lab): As 
President of the EEC Council he 
will have enormous influence 
on the altitude of the members. 
As the situation worsens week 
bv week in South Africa and 
w’ith the comments the Eminem 
Persons' Group (EPG) has made 
as to the attitude of South 
Africa, what else has to happen 
in that country before this 
Government stans to give de- 
cisive leadership against the 
actions and the attitudes of the 
South African Government? 

.Are we forever to be making 
excuses? Are we forever to be 
dragging our feet? When are we 
going to give some leadership? 
Sir Geoffrey Howe: The Gov- 
ernment has condemned the 
apartheid system without 
reservation and made it plain it 
should go and go as quickly as 
possible. It is to that end we 
supported the work of the 
Eminem Persons* Group whose 
report is now in our hands and 
will be considered. The Euro- 
pean Community foreign min- 
isters. when they met front line 
states in February, made it plain 
that it was under active consid- 
eration bv them as well. 

Mr Robeit Adley (Christchurch. 
O: Would he give himself a 
priority of doing his best to align 
the policy of the EEC. Common- 
wealth and Government? 

Sir Geoffrey Howe: The po- 
sition adopted by the Coramu- 
nilv at Luxembourg last 
September and subsequently by 
the Commonwealth in the 
following month and this 
Government's position were 
very clearly in line with each 
other. 

Mr Healey: Now that the 
Commonweallh Eminent 
Persons’ Group has reported 


wi|] the Foreign Secretary per- 
suade the Prime Minister to 
abandon her pig-headed oppo- 
sition to sanctions? 

Sir Geoffrey Howe: His com- 
ment is characteristically in- 
accurate. The position of the 
European Community has been 
a common position from 

September last year and the 
position of the Commonwealth 
has been a common position 
since last October. Full and 
careful consideration is now 
being given to the report of the 
Eminent Persons’ Group. We all 
share the common aim of 


position to influence its 
thinking. 

Mrs Chalker In order to be in a 
belter position to influence its 
thinking we have had official 
level contacts where appro-

bringing to an early end apart- 
heid in South Africa, if possible 
achieving that without violence 
and through a process of 
dialogue. 


OEarlicr. Mrs Lynda Chalker. 
Minister of State for Foreign 
and Commonwealth Affairs, 
said contacts between officials 
and the African National Con- 


gress were continuing as appro- 
uralp 


priale and the central purpose of 
this was to bring home to the 
.ANC the importance of a 
suspension of violence on all 
sides in South Africa in order to 
promote a constructive 
dialogue. 

Mr Dennis Skinner (Bolsover. 
Lab): Now that the E min ent 
Persons’ Group has been 
bombed out of South Africa by 
the Botha regime's actions 
against three Commonwealth 
countries a few weeks ago, why 
does the Government, when it 
sits down with the ANC — as it 
should do at minesterial level — 
not call for an unconditional 
amnesty for Mandela and also 
take the lead on economic 
sanctions in that unhappy coun- 


try in order to stop all the 
bloodshed 


and suffering that is 
taking place? 

Mrs Chalker: We have un- 
reservedly condemned the raids 
on the three capitals of indepen- 
dent Commonweallh countries, 
especially at a time when the 
EPG was making progress. 

We have called for the consid- 
eration of dialogue between all 


viewpoints, if the Communists 
take it over they will simply 
exploit the situation where 
nationalists arc denied the 
means of political expression. 

That is why we have called for 
an end to apartheid and why we 
have supported the EPG’s work 
which has been carried out so 
thoroughly over recent months. 
Mr Nicholas Soames (Crawley. 
Ch The imposition of sanctions 
is likely to produce more blood- 
shed and anarchy. In the town- 
ships unemployment is already 
running at 50 per cent. What 
possible advantage would ac- 
crue to those we wish to help by 
the imposition of sanctions? 
Mrs Chalker. There are many 
views on this subject but we 
certainly know that sanctions, as 
applied in the past, have not 
given a clear outcome. 

We wanted to make sure, and 
continue to do so. that the 
action we have taken — such as 
the arms embargo; the 
Gleneagles .Agreement; Euro- 
pean Community measures de- 
cided at Luxembourg: the 
Nassau measures; and the step- 
ping up of our own policy — 
these things work and we should 
only consider measures which 
will work, otherwise we will 
worsen the situation still fur- 
ther. as he says. 

Mr Donald Anderson, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman on foreign and 
Commonwealth affairs: When 
the UK takes over as chairman 
of the EEC Council of Ministers 
on July 1. will we soil maintain 
opposition in principle against 
meeting the .ANC at minesterial 
level, although we have agreed 
that other chairmen do meet 
them? 

If so, will not the British 
public and our allies conclude 
that we are only prepared 
constructively to engage white 
South Africans and not black 
South Africans? 

Mrs Chalker. His last remark is 
nonsense. Of course we are 
prepared to engage construc- 
tively in dialgoue with black 
South Africans. It is for the 
dialogue between all the peoples 
we have been working behind 
the scenes and for which the 
Commonwealth EPG has 
worked so hard. But when we 
take the presidency we will 
consider the measures that need 
to be taken at that time and I am 
sure the discussion will go along 
such hoes.

Cy. The failure of the EPG is 
partly because the Common-

retary General have been hand- 
in-hand with the ANC who have 
no intention of pursuing peace-' 
ful reform in South Africa. 

This Government has no 
business in discussing such mat- 
ters with terrorists and would be 
better talking to the moderate 
black leaders in South .Africa. 
Mrs Chalker The earlier pan of . 
his question was quite wrong. Of 
course we will talk with all the 
range of black leaders in South 
Africa but it must be left to the 
Government's decision as to the 
best way to do it. 


An MP’s right to demonstrate 


DEMOCRACY 


There were load Labour protests 
in the Commons when Mr 
Timothy Eggar, Under Sec- 
retary of State for Foreign and 
Commonwealth Affairs, re- 
marked to Mr Jeremy Corbyn 
(Islington North, Lab) that he 
was pleased to see hint taking 
part in the democratic process 


rather than demonstrating on 
the streets. There were calls for 


withdrawal of the comment. 

After the Speaker, Mr Ber- 
nard WeatherQL said that every 
MP was responsible for what he 
.said, Mr Eggar said be had no 
intention of withdrawing any- 
thing. 1 have nothing to with- 
draw (be said). 1 welcome Mr 
Corbyn back to tbe House. 

| Mr Corbyn was among 16 
people arrested outside tbe Old 
Bailey oo Monday in a protest 
demonstration of the strip 


searching of women defendants 
in a bomb trial.| 

Mr Corbyn later asked if it was 
in order for a minister answering 
questions to suggest that MPs 
who took part in demonstrations 
outside tbe House on matters 
about which they felt strongly 
were acting nndemocratically. 

Does not democracy mean (he 
asked) that people have a right 
to speak freely in this House and 
also a right to speak freely and 
demonstrate outside the House 
on matters they feel strongly 
a boot? 

The Speaker: I am not respon- 
sible for what Mr Corbyn does 
outside tbe House but _ it is 
perfectly in order for him to 
demonstrate if that is what be 
wishes to do. But every MP 
takes responsibility for what he 
says here. 

Mr .Antony Marlow (Northamp- 
ton North. O asked the Speaker 
if he would confirm to Mr 
Corbyn that although any MP 


was entitled to demonstrate or 
speak freely, he was not entitled 
to break the law. 


The Speaker: That goes for all of 
ns.

European governments in Nato 
believed it important to continue 
compliance with the Salt 11 arms 
treat)' by East ami West and for 
that reason welcomed the 
announcement by President 
Reagan of the breaking up of two 
Poseidon nuclear submarines in 
accordance with the terms of the 
treat)'. Sir Geoffrey Howe, Sec- 
retary of State for Foreign and 
Commonwealth Affairs, said 
during question time in the 
Commons. 


He hoped that the Soviet 
Union would respond as nec- 
essary to enable the treaty to be 
observed on both sides. 


Mr Michael Fallon (Darlington. 
Ck One prime interest of the 
Russians was to invent and 
exploit potential divisions be- 
tween members of the Alliance, 
for example this country and the 
United States. Is is not irrespon- 
sible that Mr Healey in Moscow 
chose to lend himself to tbe 
conspiracy against the member- 
ship and strength of the Western 
Alliance? 

Sir Geoffrey Howe: If I had to 
account for all his activities I 
would spend a great deal of time 
trying to defend him in vain. I 
hope be has taken the opportu- 
nity in Moscow to drive home to 
them the need to reach balanced 
agreement on arms control. 

Mr Andrew Faulds ( W'arley 
East, Lab): One of the roost 
damaging influences at play 
today oq the success of Nato is 
the American President pursu- 
ing policies chat damage the 
organization by rejecting Salt 11. 
Sir Geoffrey Howe: Tbe United 
States leadership has been cak- 
ing steps in the last few years to 
advance the process of arms 
control. 

Mr Dennis Healey, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on foreign and 
Commonwealth affairs: Would 
he inform the United States 
Secretary of State that the unity 
of the Alliance can only be 
weakened when the American 
administration vetoes an agree- 
ment on human contact already 
reached by his own officials and 
by European members of the 
Berne conference; and when 
President Reagan threatens to 
violate the Salt U restrictions on 
armaments after his allies have 
specifically advised him not to 
when asked for their opinion? 
Sir Geoffrey Howe: I do not 
doubt the importance Of seeking 
to achieve agreement during 
meetings such as Berne on 
human contacts. 

One must also cake a different 
view on the Salt II agreement by 
saying it is right to welcome the 
decision of (he United States to 
stay within Salt II by breaking 
□p the submarines. I hope they 
will continue to stay within the 
Salt II constraints.

SOCIAL SECURITY 


The Government’s record on 
pensions upraiing was not one 
for which he apologized but one 
he put before the House with 
pride. Mr Anthony Newton, 
Minister for Social Security, 
said in the Commons in a 
debate on the upraiing of pen- 
sions and social security 
benefits. 

Mr Newton said the orders 
before the House would put into 
effect the uprating of benefits 
announced by Mr Norman 
Fowler. Secretary of State for 
Social Services, on February 24 
and also provided for payment 
of the annual Christmas bonus. 

Most benefits were going up 
by 1.1 per cent which accurately 
represented the increase in 
prices between May 1985 and 
January 1986, the relevant pe- 
riod for the upraiing. A married 
couple's pension, for example, 
would go up from £61.30 to 
f 6 1.95. The mobility allowance 
was increased at a time when the 
cost of transport bad fallen in 
the relevant period. 

The upraiing covered eight 
months instead of the normal 
one year. That arose from the 
Government intention to 
change annual social uprating 
from November to April each 
year so that the benefit was 
brought into line with the lax 
and national insurance 
contribution year. The change 
would avoid much unnecessary 
confusion for all concerned. 

The pension increases in July 
would not be subject to tax in 
the year 1986-87. In April 1987. 
there would be another uprating 
after only eight months, based 
on the prices between January 
and September 1986. 

The present increase of l.l 
per cent could not be compared 
with the annual rate of inflation 
as some had tried to do. The 
achievement which was im- 
portant for pensioners and so- 
cial security beneficiaries was 
the Government's success in 
controlling inflation. 

Nothing in decades had done 
as much harm to them as the 
inflationary surge created by 
Labour policy of the 1970s ana 
nothing was more important to 
their long term well-being than 
that the achievement of steadier 
prices should be maintained. 

In an uncertain world he 
would predict that if Mr Mi- 
chael Meacher were let loose 
with his promises, inflation 
would return and that they 
would hear nothing from him 
today about the context in 
which the upratings should be 
placed. 


The pensions increase last 
November had been rather 
larger than the inflation increase 
prayed to be. 

Even this uprating would cost 
some £420 million in a full year, 
in addition to the £2.000 million 
cost of the last November 

uprating. 

Total spending on social se- 
curity' would cost £43 billion in 
I986-$7, over 30 per cent of all 
public expenditure. It was a 
massive sum and a clear 
demonstration of the 
Government's commitment to 
fulfil its obligation to pensioners 


and others dependent on social 
benefits. 


security benefits. 

Mr Michael Meacher, chief 
Opposition spokesman on so- 
cial services, said this batch of 
social security orders might be 
described as the bottom salaries 
review board report 

It highlighted the huge con- 
trast in treatment meted out to 
pensioners, mothers on child 
benefit and unemployed fam- 
ilies on supplementary benefit 
compared with the plush and 
velvet gloved handling of top 
civil servants, judges and 

military. 

For a pensioner in retirement. 
the increase proposed was just 
40p a week For mothers with 
child benefit, it was precisely 
lOp a week, an amount so 


of

Meacher Pensioners bung 
treated shabbily 

piffling that most people would 
scarcely stoop down in the street 
to pick it up. 

There could scarcely be more 
eloquent testimony to this 
Government's obsession with 
one law for the rich and another 
for the poor. 

Under six years of Labour 
Government, the pension in- 
creased by 20 per cent in real 
terms. Under seven years of 
Conservative Government, the 
pension had increased by just 3 
per cent in real terms. The 
difference between tbe parties in 
terms of priorities for the 
pensioners could hardly be 
plainer. 


Our charge (he said) is that 
this Government is treating 
pensioners extremely shabbily. 

The Government always said 
it could not afford more, but was 
able to find billions of pounds 
for tax cuts in the ran up to the 
next General Election. It was r 
matter of priorities. 

The next Labour Govern 
ment would take back th< 
£3.500 million handed over tc 
the rich and distribute it instead 
to the victims of the soda! 
security orders now being 
considered. 

We will increase the single 
pension by £5 a week (be said) 
and the married pension by £8 a 
week. We will increase child 
benefit by £3 a week and xue will 
extend the long-term rate 
supplementary benefit to 
long term unemployed. 

All of these major improve- 
ments (he continued) to people 
on some of the lowest incomes 
today can be afforded without 
any increase in taxation what- 
ever for 95 per cent of our 
people, simply by making the 
top 5 per cent hand back what 
they should never have been 
given in the first place. We will 
make these changes in the first 
year in our first budget. 

Sir Brandon Rbys Williams 
(Kensington. O said that in 
talking of a redistribution of 
income, consideration should 
be given to how this was 
calculated and to those who 
would have to contribute 
these extra benefits. 

About 14 million people de- 
pended for support on proof of 
need. It was disastrous to have 
more and more people depen- 
dent on old fashioned means 
tests because it meant that these 
people knew instinctively, ot 
because they had calculated it. 
that there was not too much 
point in working or saving. 

Mr Archy Kirkwood (Roxburgh 
and Berwickshire. L) said he was 
worried about the disparity’, 
which continued to arise under 
the Government, between the 
best off and the worst off. 

Mr Kenneth Carlisle (Lincoln. 
C) said high inflation was the 
worst enemy of those on social 
security benefits. 

Mr Frank Field (Birkenhead. 
Lab) said he had detected a 
coded message in Mr Meacher’s 
speech. For the first time the 
Labour spokesman seemed to 
show a much greater realisation 
of the importance of inflation. 

He thought Mr Meacher was 
coming round to the view that a 
Labour Government would not 
be embarking on policies of 
public expenditure and dis- 
cussions about wage levels 
which would lead to a rapid 
increase in prices. 


Benn tribute 
to Cousins 


A tribute to the late Mr Frank 
Cousins was paid in the Com- 
mons by Mr Tony Beau 
(Chesterfield. Lab) who said he 
wished to place on record the 
sadness which many MPs would 
feel at the death of a former MP 
and minister. 

He described Mr Cousins as 
“a distinguished member of the 
trade union movement, a warm 
and kindly man whose loss will 
be sadly regretted by those who 
knew him and worked with 
him”. 


Ship orders 

Mr Michael An cram. Under 
Secretary of Stale for Scotland, 
said in a Commons written 
reply that the Secretary of State 
(Mr Michael Rifkind) had 
approved a decision by the 
Scottish Transport Group to 
place an order for a new ferty 
with Fctguson-Ailsa Ltd. 


Signs of an upturn in 
visitors to Britain 


TOURISM 


drop in tourist spending of 3 per 
cent. 


There were signs of an early 
upturn in tourist business. Lord 
Young of Graffham, Secretary of 
State for Employment, said 
during questions in the House of 
Lords when asked by Lord 
Hatch erf Las by (Lab) bow many 
tourists were estimated to have 
cancelled their visits to Britain 
as a result of the bombing of 
Libya. 

Lord Young of Graffham said 
precise details of the number of 
cancellations by prospective 
tourists since the attack on 
Libya were not available. At 
worst, tbe tourist industry had 
estimated that the number of 
visitots from the United States 
could be down as much as 1 5 per 
cent this year, representing a 


The Director General of the 
British Tourist Authority, who 
had recently returned from the 
US. had said that forward 
bookings were now back on the 
right track and that tourist 
inquiries at BTA offices were 
returning to their former levels. 

The Government was taking 
all possible steps to convey the 
message to prospective visitors 
that Britain was a very safe and 
enjoyable destination. In the 
first three months of this year 
the number of visits increased 
by 10 percent and visitors from 
North America by IS percent. 


We have to work together in a 
concerted effort (he said) to 
reduce the level of terrorism and 
make this a world safe to travel 


in. 


Bob Geldofs inelegant phrase 


HOWE SPEECH 


When Mr Dale Campbed- 
Savours (Workington, Lab) 
asked Sir Geoffrey Howe, Sec- 
retary of State for Foreign and 
Commonwealth Affairs, in the 
Commons for his response to 
Mr Bob Geldofs description of 
his speech at the United Nations 
special session on Africa as “a 
lot of old crap” the Speaker, Mr 
Bernard WeatheriU, intervened 
to say that that was not a very 
elegant phrase to use. 

Mr CampbelFSavoars immedi- 


ately pointed out that Mr Geldof 
had been given a knighthood 
after using it 

Sir Geoffrey Howe com- 
mented that he regarded that 
kind of language as unhelpful. 

But it was only one of the 
aspects of Mr Geldofs character 
which had made hint widely 
admired around the world for 
the part he had played, be 
added. 

Mr Alistair Burt (Bury North. 
C) began the exchanges by 
referring to general satisfaction 
at the KBE award to Mr Geldof. 
He asked for an assurance that 
the patient and generous work 
done by this country over many 


years on overseas development- 
would continue with the aim off 
improving the conditions of life 
for all Africans. • 

Sir Geoffrey Howe said total 
British aid going to Africa 
through bilateral and multi- 
lateral channels had increased 
from £447 million in 1982 to 
about £570 million in 1985. 

Perhaps the most encouraging 
thing to add (he went on) is the 
extent to which tbe report 
approved by the UN General 
Assembly last week stresses so 
strongly to the African countries 
concerned tbe importance of the 
positive role of the private 
sector. 


Alliance study recommends keeping Polaris as deterrent 


By Philip Webster 
Chief Political Correspondent 


Owen stands firm on nuclear arms 


Cancellation “at the first 
opportunity” of the Trident missile 
programme and the maintenance in 
service for the next decade of the 
Polaris nuclear submarines was 
recommended yesterday by the joint 
Liberal-SDP Commission on De- 
fence and Disarmament after a two- 
year study of British defence policy. 


A strong restatement of the two 
parties* commitment to Nato, a 
strengthening of the European pillar 
within the Atlantic Alliance, sup- 
port for the continued stationing of 
American bases in Britain, although 
with a dual-key mechanism for 
cruise missiles, a more positive 
approach by Britain to arms control 
and disarmament and a comprehen- 
sive review of Britain’s defence 
priorities formed the central recom- 
mendations of the commission set 
up by Mr David Steel and Dr David 
Owen. 


From the moment it became 
known that the commission would 
be leaving open the question of a 
successor to Polaris. Dr Owen has 
taken several opportunities to ex- 
press his readiness to replace it He 
said at the Council for Social 
Democracy in Southport on May 
i 8: “I must tell you bluntly that I be- 
lieve we should remain a nuclear- 
weapon state. 

“If we are to carry conviction in 
our decision to cancel Trident after 
an election we ought to be prepared 
to say that wc will find a replace- 
ment for Polaris, unless there has 
been such a massive reduction in 
nuclear warheads on the part of the 
Soviet Union and the Unites States 


that we would feel it right in 
negotiations to give up our nuclear 
weapons. 

“1 definitely do not believe I 
would carry any conviction in the 
next election were I to answer on 
your behalf on the question of the 
replacement to Polaris 'that would 
have to depend on the circum- 
stances at the time’. That would get. 
and would deserve, a belly laugh 
from the British electorate. That 
sort of ftidging and mudging was 
what ! left behind in Lhe Labour 

Party.” 

In Bonn last Thursday, he stated: 
“What is vital to Europe is thai 
France should not be left as the only 
European nudear-weapon state.” 


The key passages on Polaris, 
which have caused so much contro- 
versy within the Alliance, stale Lhal 
no early decision should be taken on 
a replacement. 


Tbe commission stares.* “Tbe 
future of the Polaris submarines 
mast be considered in terms both of 
deterrence and of arms control. We 
believe that the Polaris submarines 
should be maintained in service as a 
European contribution to deterrence 


for the next decade — well beyond 
the end of the next Parliament — and 
therefore do not need to be replaced 
now. During this period we believe it 
will be the duty of the British 
Government to play its proper part 
in the arms control process by 
ensuring that British nuclear weap- 
ons are included in the negotiations. 

“No decision on whether and. if 
so, how British nuclear weapons 
should be maintained beyond Polar- 
is can properly be made except in 
the light of: the progress of arms 
control and disarmament, the bal- 
ance of relationships within Nato 
between Europe and the United 
States, the range and costs of the 


technical alternatives which might 
be available to maintain a European 
minimum deterrent, the views of our 
European allies on whether new 
British nuclear capability are re- 
quired for European defence.” 

It was the leaking of those 
passages in a manner which sug- 
gested that they represented a defeat 
for Dr Owen which led to two of the 
SDP leader's colleagues insisting 
that the preface to the report by Mr 
John Edmonds, tbe chairman, 
should include the following words: 
“Certain members of the commis- 
sion wish it to be made clear (hat in 
their view Britain should in present 
circumstances remain a nuclear 


weapon state and that they are 
willing to replace Polaris. Some 
other members believe that present 
circumstances do not justify the 
replacement of Polaris. I must 
stress, however, that all members 
agree that a decision on whether 
and. if so, bow to replace Polaris 
should be nude on the basis of the 
criteria we have set out.” 

The commission agrees, however, 
that Polaris should be included in 
appropriate disarmament and arms 
control negotiations. 

It states: “It is important that 
Britain’s own strategic nuclear 
forces should not impede United 
States and Soviet reductions. We 
accept the view that British and 
French nuclear forces most be taken 
into accoem as part of the 
Easi/West balance and thos in 
nuclear arms control negotiations.*' 


strategic systems and the abolition 
of intermediate nuclear forces “it is 
wrong for Britain to be planning a 
more than four-fold Increase in her 
nuclear capabilities'*. 


Tbe commission calls for a better 
sharing of burdens and decisions 
between the European countries of 
Nato and the United States. It states 
as the long-term aim die end of the 
East/West military confrontation in 
Europe and complains that the 
present Government's “excessive 
deference” to the present United 
States administration undermines 
the development of common Europe- 
an policies. “We have no doubt that 
Britain must remain firmly commit- 
ted to tbe Atlantic Alliance.” 


It adds: “Britain should also work 
out under what conditions the 
present Polaris force coohl be 
included in negotiations with the 
Soviet Union and be ready to discuss 
such proposals with her allies ami 
with the Russians.” 

Arguing against continuing the 
Trident project tbe commission 
states that it will account for at least 
6 per cent of the equipment budget 
during the period of its acquisition 
and substantially more during the 
peak years at a time when the 
defence budget as a w hole is severely 
overstretched. When the super pow- 
ers are talking of deep cuts in 


The document states: “We recog- 
nize that nuclear weapons have had 
an important function in the politi- 
cal relationship between East and 
West, as deterrent forces.” 


But h calls for more attention to 
the “freeze” concept, an agreement 
to halt the deployment of intermedi- 
ate-range nuclear missiles and elim- 
inate the missiles already deployed 
by both sides, with Britain (siting 
the initiative for a limited-term 
moratorium on further deployment 
by the West, a resumption of tbe 
tripartite British/ American/Soviet 
negotiations for a permanent com- 
prehensive test ban, and tbe with- 
drawal of all battlefield nuclear

Big future 
for gold 
substitute 


By Bill Johnstone 
Technology Correspondent 


A gold substitute which will 
save electronics companies 
millions of pounds a year has 
been developed by the British 
electrical giant BICC. 

The process is the result of 
three years' research and has 
been pursued by electronic 
experts who have relied for 
decades on gold for good 
electrical contacts since it does 
not wear and is non-corrosive. 

The British substitute has 
the same properties as a foil 
gold contact and is made from 
a palladium alloy — one of the 
latinum family — coated 


y — co 

with a thin film of gold, only 
one tenth of the thickness now 
used. 

The creators are expecting it 
to have a big impact on the 
electronics market In the past 
few days the price of gold has 
climbed substantially due to 
investors' nerves about the 
impact of political unrest in 
South Africa, the principal 
source of gold. 

South Africa is also a prima- 
ry source of palladium, but 
alternative supplies are in 
abundance in the Soviet 
Union and Canada. 



COMMENTARY 



i 


In his first major speech to 
the Honse of Commons as 
Secretary of State for Educa- 
tion, Mr Kenneth Baker an- 
nounced this week that a 
further £20 million is to be 
spent on books and equipment 
for the new GCSE exam. In 
her speech last week to the 
Conservative Women's Con- 
ference. Mrs Thatcher gave 
what has been widely inter- 
preted as a clarion call for 
lower taxes. 

Tbe juxtaposition of those 
t»o statements points to both a 
political challenge and a trap 
now facing the Government 
The challenge is to extract the 
maximum benefit from selec- 
tive increases in spending. 
Ideally, tbe increases would be 
so selective as to leave room 
for tax cuts as welL There is 
much to be said for having the 
best of both worlds if we caa 
get it 

But if there has to be a 
choice,.tben the political prior- 
ity should be some more 
money for education and 
health. 1 pick oat these two 
services because it is there that 
the political pressures lie. 

There may be other 
claimants for extra spending 
on grounds of public policy. 
But the political complaints to 
be heard on the doorstep at 
recent by-elections have fo- 
cused on schools and hospi- 
tals. 


I 



Grumbling about 
standards 


The Government will not 
win the next election on its 
education and health policies, 
but it could lose the election on 
them. Its task is to neutralize 
them politically between now 
and then, to push them lower 
down the agenda of public 
concern. 

That could not be accom- 
plished simply by throwing 
more money in their direction. 
There is no chance of the 
Government spending enough 
to achieve the necessary re- 
sults in that way alone, and I 
doubt If it is even what the 
country wants. - 

“Let us measure public 
services not just by how much 
taxpayers' money they take,” 
Mrs Thatcher proclaimed last 
week, “but more by the stan- 
dards of service they provide”. 

That is precisely what the 
voters are saying. The paradox 
is that they are grumbling 
about standards and being 
answered time and again by 
ministers pointing to the mon- 
ey that is being spent. 

What is needed is to spend a 
limited amount of money in 
ways that are calculated to 
have a direct impact on stan- 
dards. In education that does 
indeed mean spending more on 
books and equipment It also 
means giving more to the 
teachers than has yet been 
agreed as a method of ensuring 
higher standards of profes- 
sional performance. Improve- 
ments in administration are 
equally necessary. 

Tbe same principles apply 
with just as much force in 
health. There is an almost 
unlimited amount of money 
that could usefully be spent in 
airing for an ageing popula- 
tion when health technology is 
advancing so rapidly.

Projects to 
help patients 


Bat there are experienced 
judges who believe that quite a 
lot could be achieved by 
m a ki ng even an extra £50 
million to £100 million avail- 
able to the NHS general 
management board for use on 
projects for direct services to 
patients, perhaps on measures 
specifically designed to reduce 
the length of waiting lists. 

The Government is rightly 
trying to shift health resources 
to those regions which have 
been less well cared for in tbe 
past But that process is bound 
to cause pain elsewhere unless 
there is a bit more money all 
round. Yet whatever money is 
available will need to be better 
used. 

The resignation of Mr Vic- 
tor Paige as chairman of the 
NHS management board 
pointsto the gravity of tbe 
administrative problems. It is 
not tbe concept of business 
management of the service 
that is at fault, it is rather that 
the Civil Servants have mus- 
cled in on what was intended to 
be a separate structure of 
management. Unless that is 
corrected it will be hard to get 
value for money. 

Getting value for money is 
the challenge. The trap for the 
Government is that it may not 
even get credit for the money it 
does spend if ministers appear 
to be brawling in semi-public 
on the rival merits of tax cuts 
and public expenditure. 

They have (ended in the 
past to get the worst of both 
worlds by spending more mon- 
ey but with evident reluctance. 
If they are wise now they will 
spend a limited amount of 
extra money in a more positive 
spirit

THE IRA BOMBERS 


The IRA blunders that 
stopped a devastating 
bombing campaign 


By Stewart Tendier and Richard Ford 

The Brighton bomber, the 
most deyasting IRA terrorist 


to strike in Britain, was caught 
by a blend of police and MI 5 
intelligence, undercover sur- 
veillance and blunders by 
Patrick Magee himself. 

Police were led not only to 
Magee but to an IRA “active 
service unit" .preparing to 
wreak such extraordinary hav- 
oc that some British resorts 
faced the possibility of evacu- 
ation Iasi summer. 

The first bomb of their 
campaign would have been in 
Brighton on the morning the 
Queen was visiting the town. 
The last would have been in 
Southampton during Cowes 
week. 

Other targets may have 
been reconnoitred, including 
Wembley Stadium. In Lon- 
don bombs are thought to 
have been planned for a hotel 
in south Kensington and an- 
other in Bayswater at the 
height of the tourist season. 

Magee returned to main- 
' land Britain after the Grand 
Hotel bombing unaware that 
he had left behind fingerprints 
which could conclusively 
identify him. 

When the IRA set up the 
active service unit they re- 


cruited a callow Donegal man 
who was both a terrorist 
innocent abroad and mentally 
ilL 

As the man withdrew from 
the unit after a series of 
securitygafies, a man bringing 
a message on his future was 
being shadowed by police; 
leading them across the Irish 
Channel from Belfast to the 
western coast of Scotland and 
a rendezvous with Magee. 

The two terrorists met on 
Carlisle station last June. One 
of the watchers recognized 
Magee from the description in 
a confidential police circular. 

A few hours later aimed 
police raided a Glasgow flat to 
arrest Magee, and ended not 
only an IRA strategy to attack 
16 holiday hotels and beaches 
last summer but embryo plans 
to bomb or shoot SAS targets, 
a senior British officer con- 
nected with the regiment, and 
other military targets. 

But today, as Magee faces 
decades in one of Britain's top 
security prisons, some of the 
men and women who helped 
him to smuggle and assemble 
the Brighton bomb are still at 
large. 

Scotland Yard detectives 
believe that the Brighton tar- 


get may have been chosen up 
to two years ago by the 
Provisional IRA's Army 
CounriL 

Bombing die bold at the 
height of the Conservative 
Party conference would be a 
vital coup for the 
Provisionals, whose fortunes 
have fluctuated is the past few 
years. Under the Victorian 
roof of the Grand would be 
sleeping the Prime Minister 
and the most senior members 
of the Cabinet, on the night 
before Mrs Thatcher was to 
address the conference. 

It is likely that the Proves 
were first attracted to the aim 
of killing Mrs Thatcher in 
1981, during her intransigent 
stand against the 10 Republi- 
can hunger strikers. 

The Pro vos calculated that 
attacks in Britain would not 
affect their electoral strategy 
in Ulster, would bring them 
more publicity than 50 bombs 
in Belfast, and would be 
particularly popular among 
hard-line activists concerned 
that their “Armalite and ballot 
box" approach was leading to 
a downgrading of militazy 
operations. 

The attack at Brighton, 
which occurred during pro- 




Ffctrick Magee, who planted the Brighton bomb. 

IRA believed that because of the Provisionals stopped using 
the age of the bufidiag the- 'safe houses or garages as 
bomb would completely de- stores, and buried material in

Patrick Magee, Provi-

version of Guy Fawkes, trav- 
elled in the space of a decade 
from life as a teenager in a 
quiet East Anglian oty to the 
violent streets of Belfast and a 
career as the IRA’s foremost 
soldier. 

The quiet, introverted fig- 
ure remembered by teachers, 
neighbours and schoolmates 
in Norwich became in torn a 
petty criminal, an internee 
and an Irish exile . 

Magee might never have 
stood in the dock at the 
Central Criminal Court but 
for the fact that he arrived in 
Belfast as an imprestiona^ 


19-year-old to find Ulster's 
troubles beginning to erupt 
He was in fact returning to 
the scene of his birth in 1951.

moved to Norwich is search

from wealthy. .

another IRA bomber with a 
strange sense of humour ? 

A detective inspector in the 
anti-terrorist branch made the 
crucial link. Looking at long- 
term intelligence he made a 
link to Patrick Magee: 

Special Brandi contacted 
them opposite numbers in the 
Garda in Dublin to discover if 
any known activists had dis- 
appeared from their normal 
haunts. Magee was missing 
from tbe Dublin estate where 
be lived. 

The hotel registration card 
for 629 was sent to the Yard’s 
fingerprint experts. A pahn 
print matched Magee . 

At the Grand Magee had 
not asked for a particular 
room bat was given one 
overlooking the sea. The 
Prime Minister and her Cabi- 
net would also have rooms on 
the front during the confer- 
ence. The final potitionmg of 
the bomb was therefore partly 
a matter of luck. The amount 
of explosive was going to be so 
huge that the bomb was 
guaranteed to inflict massive 
damage on the from of die 
hotel. 


Four months later, in Janu- 
ary last year police received 
tbe final report from the 
fingerprint experts. Sussex po- 
lice were told who “Walsh" 
was. 


The Magees returned to 
Britain after a couple . of 
years — they now live in 
Ashford, Kent -leaving their 
driest son behind in the 
Ardoyne area of Belfast where 
an active, tough Provisional 
IRA group was rising in the 
down-at-heel working class 
area bordering on the Protes- 
tant stronghold of the 
Shankhifi.

He had the potential to be a 
big asset for the Provisionals 
in their campaigns in main- 
land Britain. Few of their 
number ted spent as much 
time living in Britain as 
Magee. 

By now his contact with his 
family seems to have been 
minimal. When he married 
his girlfriend, Eileen 
McGreevey, from an address 
only a few streets from where 
he was living, two months 
after the arrest, he announced 
the fact to his parents with a

Three years later in 1980 
Magee was reported to be 
living across the border in the 
Irish Republic. He had been 
identified to Scotland Yard's 
anti-terrorist branch as a sus-

THE IRA BOMBERS 






Today's Pan Am 


The black night 


when terror 


ripped a happy 


world apart 


By Michael McCarthy 


Donald and Muriel 
Mac Lean may have been 
Scotland's leading Conserva- 
tives. but the reality of their 
lives lay far from the ratified 
atmosphere of political power- 
broking and Highland high- 
living. 

He was. and is, a small-town 
ophthalmic optician. For 
more than 30 years, he has 
been writing prescriptions for 
people needing spectacles. His 
wife, before they married, was 
a comptometer operator. 
Their home was a three- 
bedroom dormer bungalow 
built in the 1960s. They had 
27 happy, normal suburban 
years together. . 

At 2.54 on the morning of 
October 12. 1984. all of that 
decent normalcy was blown 
apart m their Brighton hotel 
bedroom while they slept. 

The Grand Hotel bomb that 
so nearly wiped out the British 
Cabinet was placed behind the 
bath panel of the MacLean's 
room, number 629. It went off 
a few feet away from them and. 
miraculously did hot kill them 
both outright 

Sir Donald — be was 
knighted last year — was 
blown straight down to the 
floor below. His wife, MurieL, 
was blown into the next room. 
He escaped with a badly 
shattered left heel but MurieL 
who. lost a leg. was so badly 
hurt that a month later she 
became the fifth and last of the 
bomb's fetal victims. 

Her husband watched her 
slip away from him. 'The first 
week I very much thought she 
had a chance. 1 was obviously 
aware that she was severely 
injured, but from that Friday 
through to the Sunday night 
we spent a fair amount of time 
together and although she was 
tired we still managed to talk. 
They had put as in 
neighbouring rooms and just- 
wheeled my bed through. 


Then on the Sunday night 
i for 


her breathing took a turn for 
the worse. The breathing diffi- 
culty was the thing, really, it 
was due to the . blast com- 
pounded by her injuries: She 
had to go on a ventilator and 
for that she had to ber com-- 
pletely sedated, so then for the 
next weeks it was just a' case of 
being with her.** 

Sir Donald, quiet, and . 
served with warm eyes and a 
gentle Highland lilt, was tafk-r 
ing at his home near Ayr a few 
hours after learning that Pat- 
rick Magee had been convict- 
ed of murdering his wife. 

Sir Donald met her through 
the Young Conservatives. Tt 
was in Newcastle where I 
started working and where 
Muriel came from.- We were 
members of the same YC 
branch and we were' both 
canvassing for the Newcastle 
North by-election in March 
1957. Bill Elliot won it. Heady 
days." he smiled.

returning to Scotland Sir Don-

hope it will be sufficient to 
make sure that no one else will 
be. put- at risk by this fellow's 
activities." 


Sir Donald gave evidence ar 
the iriaL Did he see the 
accused? “Very briefly, when I 
entered the box." 

What did he feel? 

“Such a mixture of feelings. 
Two main elements, probably. 
Puzzlement, that anyone 
could be so indiscriminate in 
an act as cowardly as that, and 
contempt for anyone who 
could stoop to iL I'm quite 
certain that whatever the 
cause may be it cannot justify 


this type of action. They don't

himself? “Yes and they -will 
remain exactly that — person- 
al. private feelings." 

He is slowly rebuilding his 
life with the help of his

As deputy chairman of the

south London. 

It was David Tadd, a 
fingerpint expert with 1 8 years 
experience, who matched the 
prints of “Roy Walsh " on the 
registration card for room 629 
at the Grand Hotel. Brighton, 
in September 1984 and those 
of Patrick Magee.

linked Magee to the bomb in 
the Rubens Hotel last sum-

Brighton, destroyed their world. Mrs Maclean later died 
from the injuries she sustained. 


When the Walsh registra-

days after the Brighton explo-

disclosed nothing to the naked

could react to amino-arids

Sri Lanka carnage as 
passengers blasted 
by Tamil bus bombs 


Colombo (Reuter) — At 
least 80 people were lolled and 
wounded yesterday when 
bombs planted by Tamil sepa- 
ratists exploded on two'buses 
in Sri Lanka's eastern city of 
Trincomalee. a military 
spokesman said. 

He said 20 passengers died 
. immediately, and many more 
deaths were expected among 
. trapped and injured victims. 

Ambulances took the 
wounded to local hospitals 
and hospitals in Anuradbapu- 
ra, 7Q miles from Trincoma- 
lee. Teams of doctors and 
- nurses carrying blood supplies 
went by helicopter to the two 
cities from- the. capital, 
Colombo!, : 

The explosionscame within 
three minutes of each other at 
about I Oam, on buses run by 
the state-owned Ceylon Trans- 
port Board. The buses, each 
carrying 70 civilian passen- 
-gers. had just left 
Trincoraake's main bus-de- 
pot and were within 200 yards 
of each other when the bombs 
went off 

‘ Lietenant-General Cyril 
Ranatunga, commander of 
joint military operations 
against the separatists, was at 
the scene directing rescue 
operations. 

The blasts were the . latest 
attacks by rebels fighting io 
carve , out a separate Tamil 


nation in northern and eastern 
Sri Lanka. 


Last month more, than 130 
people died in guerrilla bomb 
blasts and other attacks, in- 
cluding a raid on the country's 
second-largest cement factory, 
a part Japanese-owned plant 
in Trincomalee. 

The bombs went off just as 
efforts picked up again to find 
a political settlement to the 
ethnic conflict between Sri 
Lanka's majority Sinhalese 
and minority Tamils, who 
make up 12.6 per cent of the 
country's 15 million pop- 
ulation. 

President Jayewardene was 
told of the bus bombs during a 
meeting with bis Cabinet to 
explain Sri Lanka's latest offer 
to the guerrillas in peace talks 
mediated by Delhi 

India bas played a leading 
role in trying to settle the 
conflict because of its 55 
million Tamil population, 
which Sri Lanka says supports 
the rebels. President Jaye- 
wardene has proposed a mea- 
sure of autonomy for Tamils 
through a system of provincial 
councils. 

The timing of the bus 
attacks was similiar to bomb 
blasts on an Air Lanka plane 
last month, again when peace 
talks looked likely . to make 
Since the Air Lanka

stalled. 


Several hours after the 
bombs, Trincomalee was 
placed under a 1 2-hour enrfew 
to head off ethnic clashes like 
the 1983 riots in Colombo. 

The city has a mixed Sinha- 
lese, Tamil and Muslim popu- 
lation. The Defence Secretaiy, 
General Sepaia Attygafle, said 
it was not known how many 
members of each community 
were among the bus victims. 
He said they were all innocent 
civilian passengers. 

The national news agency, 
Lankapuvath, said meanwhile 
that several civilians were 
wounded, and some were 
feared killed, when guerrillas 
and security forces clashed at 
sea off a northern island on 
Tuesday. 

It said rebels using fishing 
boats launched the attack 
during a “troop changeover* 
exercise at a recently-estab- 
lished army camp on 
Mandativu island, off the 
Jaffna peninsula. 

Troops captured eight guer- 
rillas and repulsed the 
attackers, the agency said. 
There was no official confir- 
mation of reports by local 
residents that about 30 civil- 
ians were killed fn the battle.

Israel ally warns of guerrilla build-up 


under pressure 


From Ian Murray, Metntia, Israel 


There is growing Palestin- 
ian pressure along IsraeTs 
northern border, according to 
the commander of the Sooth 
Lebanon Army (SLA), Gener- 
al Antoine La had. 

Speaking at a rare news 
conference, obviously given to 
show that die SLA. with Israe- 
li help, was very much in cont- 
rol of the situation inside the 
so-called security zone, he said 
“the Palestinians are prepar- 
ing themselves” and claimed 
that, with Syrian help, they 
.were using militants from 
other groups, soda as the 
Hezbollah Islamic extremists 
and foe Communists, to .try to 
infiltrate the zone. 

General Lahad said there 

were two or three attacks a day 
and that most came from 
outside the zone. This indicat- 
ed foat-foere was very fittie 
real peRetratidu of -foe . SLA 
area.- -- - -- 

■ He said all foe attackers 
relied ou Syrian money and 
weapons. Syrian inteiUgenee 
officers smed wife the groups 
and fights between- the rival 
factions were engineered by 
the Syrians, who used' tins 
discord to increase the reliance 
each group had on support 
from Damascus. 

The general admitted that 
the army could not operate 
without Israeli support, but be 
was fiercely patriotic fa what 
be said about this. 

“It is important to under- 
stand that the SLA -is com- 
posed of Lebanese soldiers 
and I am a Lebanese. The in- 
terests of Lebanon are much 
important than any Is- 
interests,” be said. 

It was the duty of any coun- 
try to maintain peace along its 
international borders, and as 


this was notbeing done by the 
Lebanese Government be saw 
it as the SLAYuusssou to do 
so. There had to be part of the 
Lebanese coranranJty prepared 
to work wift Ifa neigMbws so 
that when eventually there was 
peace a relationship existed to 
build on. 

“Our interests are for peace 
and they meet tiie Israeli 
interest far peace. We hare a 
common interest,” he said. 

He was scornful of foe idea 
that tbe UN Interim Force fa 
Lebanon (Unify) could main- 
tain peace. Even with a force of 
200,000 men, be said, they 
would not he able to control 
foe area without help -from 
local Lebanese people who 
understood the language and 
customs. 

The only reason that Unify 
maintained good relations 
with foe Areal Shia group, be 
suggested, was to 'keep its 
soldiers safe from attack. The 
Uhlfil-controOed areas, north 
of ■ foe . SLA. . zone ' >ere 
“sanctuaries” for groups at- 
tacking the JZone. Unifil, be 
said; Was more like foe Inters 
national Red Cross (IRQ than 
a peacekeeping force. . 

He was angry with foe IRC 
about the way it had attacked 
him for not allowing an ins- 
pection of the SLA prison at 
Khian. lt had no legal right to 
make such an. ins pe ctio n, he 
said. Although there was noth- 
ing to hide, foe SLA could not 

agree to allow an international 

body fo inspect a prison where 
people were being detained fa 
connection with an internal 
affair. 

He denied reports of torture 
and mistreatment at the prison 
and said relatives, even from 
outride the zone, were allowed 
to visit detainees. - 


Iran rescues wounded 


from Beirut camp 


From Our Cbrirespondenh Beintf 


Iranian attempts to negoti- 
ate a settlement between Shia 
Muslim militiamen and Pales- 
tinian guerrillas fighting in 
Beirut produced ' their first 
results yesterday when Iranian 
doctors evacuated 10 wound- 
ed Palestinians from a be- 
sieged refugee camp. 

The rescue came as Mr 
Nabih Bern, leader of the Shia 
Amal militia, asked Syria to 
send troops to end the fighting 
around the Sabra, Chatilla ana 
Bouij al-Barajneh camps. 

Six Iranian doctors entered 
Bouij al-Barajneh in ambu- 
lances flying the Iranian flag in 
a lull in the fighting, now in its 
fourth week. 

The four women: three 
children and three young men 
were the first wounded to be 
taken to hospital since fighting ' 
virtually sealed off the camps. 

One Palestinian -said 17 . 
wounded -guerrillas had re- 
fused to leave the camp. 
“They demanded guarantees 
that AmaJ militiamen will hot 
liquidate them in hospitals.” 

The rescue came four days 
afro' Iran began its diplomatic 
campaign, led by Mr Muham- • 
mad AJi Becharati. the Deputy 
Foreign Minister, to end the 
“camps war. in which more 
than HO people have been 
killed and 500 wounded. 


Mr Bern’s call for Syrian 
military intervention was pub- 
lished by Beirut newspapers as 
he had folks in Damascus with 
Mr Abdut-Halim - Khaddam, 
the Syrian Vice-President, and 
representatives' of prO-Syriafi 
Palestinian guerrilla groups. 

“The time has come for our 
Syrian brothers to set up a 
military or a security force to 
disengage the combatants and 
bring an end to the camps 
anarchy,” Mr Bern said. 

Both Damascus and Amal. 
which receives generous polit- 
ical and military support from 
Syria, are determined to pre- 
vent the return to Lebanon of 
Palestinian guerrillas loyal to 
Mr Yassir Arafat, the PLG 
chairman. Mr Bern claims' 
that at least 1.000 -pro-Arafat 
guerrillas are already -back in 
Beirut, and has accused. Presi- 
dent, Gemayel of Lebanon of 
assisting their return. 

There was no -immediate 
reaction in Damascus to Mr 
Bern's' calL The Syrians al- 
ready have about 30.000 men 
stationed in- northern- -and 
eastern Lebanon under a 1976 
Arab League mandates They 
are unlikely to send troops to 
west Beirut since that would

staunchly- opposed to a greater

&L : : 


Violence erupted for the 
third successive day yesterday 
' around the Crossroads squat- 
ter camp outside Cape Town 
while Bishop Desmond Tutu, 
the Nobel Peace Prize winner, 
was preparing to try to negoti- 
ate an end to fighting which 
has claimed at least 17 lives 
since Monday. 

As the violence continued, 
Lhe Cabinet was meeting in 
Cap? Town, .. reportedly to 
consider whether to neimpose 
a state of emergency after 
plans to rush two draconian 
new security Bills through 
Parliament were thwarted by 
the Indian and Coloured 
.chambers. 

Pretoria is understood to 
have wanted the Bills ap- 
proved before June 16. the 
1 Oth anniversary of the 
Soweto uprising, when wide- 
spread disturbances are ex- 
pected. This appears no longer 
to be possible even if the 
.Government uses the dead- 
lock-breaking President's 
Council, which it controls. 

The two Bills would give the 
police even wider scope for 
summary arrest and deten- 
tion. and enable Mr Le 
Grange, the Minister of Law 
and Order, to assume the 
equivalent of emergency pow- 
ers in any part of the country 
he deemed to be an “unrest 
area”. 

Conservative black vigilan- 
tes broke through police lines 
yesterday afternoon, and be- 
gan setting fire to the remain- 
ing shacks in the K.TC section 
of Crossroads, most of which 


was destroyed in attacks on 
Monday and Tuesday. Battles 
broke out between the vigilan- 
tes and militant young 
"comrades” trying to defend 
their territory. 

A police spokesman. Lieu- 
tenant Auie Laubscher. said it 
had not been possible to 
prevent the attack by the 
vigilantes, but that Lhe police 
had been able to disperse the 
two groups later with tear gas.

Journalist deported 

Mr Peter Wellman, a journal- 
ist, aged 45, was deported from 
Zimbabwe to South Africa 
yesterday. Mr Wellman, who 
writes for the Associated Press 
and The Mail on Sunday, said 
authorities fingerprinted him 
like a criminal, but would not 
teD him why he was being 
deported (Jan Raath writes). 

official Opposition in the 
white chamber, announced 
that it would move a motion 
today calling on Mr Le Grange 
to resign. The PFP said he had 
proved himself “incompetent 
arrogant and callous”, and 
had caused lhe police *to be 
seen “not as protectors of life 
and property, but as provoca- 
teurs and instruments of 
violence”. 

This had been shown, the 
PFP said, by the minister’s 
continuing refusal to investi- 
gate “daily, widespread and 
apparently well-founded alle- 
gations of police inaction, if 


not partisanship, m group- 1 
versus-group confrontations”. { 

There has been a torrent of 
allegations, including eye-wit- 
ness accounts, that the police 
have either actively aided and i 
abetted the vigilantes, or stood 
back while they were allowed 
to go on the rampage in areas 
of the township occupied by 
lhe “comrades”. 

Relief workers said yester- 
day that as many as 60.000 
refugees from this week’s vio- 
lence. and earlier fighting at 
the end of last month, were 
hiding in the bush. 

The freelance television 
cameramen. Mr George 
De'ath, who was hacked about 
the head and body on Tuesday 
while filming the fighting for 
ITN. was reported to be in a 
“very critical” condition in 
Groole Schuur Hospital in 
Cape Town. His black 
soundman. Mr Andile Fosi. 
who was also injured, said 
their assailants were vigilantes 
and not “comrades”, as 
claimed earlier by the police. 

Mr Fosi also alleged that the 
police video unit had spent 10 
minutes filming Mr De'ath as 
he lay unconscious and bleed- 
ing on the ground, turning 
over his body as they did so. 

Asked by The Times to 
comment on these allegations. 
Lieutenant Laubscher said a 
statement would be issued by 
the Government's Bureau for 
Information, but a spokesman 
for the bureau was unaware of 
any such statement.

Prospect of 
US sanctions 
draws closer 

Washington — Tough new 
congressional sanctions 
against South Africa axe one 
step nearer after the House 
fOreign affairs committee vot- 
ed by 25 to 13 to back the 
proposals on Tuesday (Mi- 
chael Binyon writes). 

The BUI would- forbid all 
new US investments in South 
Africa, stop commercial bank 
loans and landing rights in the 
US for South African Airway's 
and prohibit coat steel and 
uranium imports. If Mr Nel- 
son Mandela, the black leader, 
is not released from prison 
within a year, all US computer 
companies will have to slop 
operations in South Africa. 

Mr Thomas “Tip” O'Neill, 
the speaker, said the Bill 
would “sail through” the 
Democrat-controlled House. 


Pretoria gets warning 
from EEC president 

From Richard Owen, Strasbourg 


Mr Hans van den Broek. the 
Dutch Foreign Minister and 
retiring EEC president, yester- 
day warned that South Africa 
was “running out of time” and 
that the EEC might have to 
take drastic measures against 
Pretoria. 

In a pessimistic address to 
the European Parliament Mr 
van den Broek. who will hand 
over to Sir Geoffrey Howe on 
July I. called on “all influen- 
tial groups” to lake steps to 
halt the ever increasing vio- 
lence in South Africa. 

Diplomats said the EEC and 
Commonwealth were both 
likely to put pressure on 
Britain to agree to sanctions. 
EEC pressures will be mount- 
ed at its summit in The Hague 


in two weeks' lime. 

Mr van den Broek said the 
Twelve would have to consid- 
er further far-reaching mea- 
sures if South Africa does not 
make changes leading to the 
abolition of apartheid. "Al- 
lhough small steps in the right 
direction hate been taken, 
they do not go far enough to 
meet the justified dernamls of 
the black and Coloured sec- 
tions of the population." 

The European Parliament 
was told this week that there 
was reduced support for sanc- 
tions among black African 
from line states. Senior British 
officials said Danish and Irish 
pressure for full EEC sanc- 
tions was being counteracted 
by caution not only from 
Britain but also from France. 


Welter of propaganda which clouds the debate on Salt 


By Nicholas Ashford 

Diplomatic Correspondent 

President Reagan's derision 
to break out of the 1970 Salt 2 
treaty later this year unless the 
Soviet Union moves towards 
a significant reduction in stra- 
tegic weapons was prompted 
by repeated US assertions that 
the Soviet Union has persis- 
tently failed to comply with 
the Salt 2 and other arms 
control treaties. 

Moscow has rejected the US 
claims and has made counter- 
charges of its own. 

■ Exactly where the truth lies 
is a matter for increasingly 
bitter debate among aims 
control experts in this country 
as well as in the US. What is 
certain is that the accusations 
made by both sides are not as 
clear-cut as each tries to make 

OUL 


In fad President Reagan's 
decision no longer to be bound 
by the limits of the (unratified 
and expired) Salt 2 agreement 
had more to do with political 
in-fighting between “hawks” 
and “doves” within his Ad- 
ministration than with any 
threat to US security posed by 
alleged technical treaty viola- 
tions by Moscow. 

if. as seems likely. President 
Reagan does deride to exceed 
Salt limits when the US 
launches its 131st B52 bomber 
equipped with air-launched 
cruise missiles later this year, 
it will be largely because 
Pentagon hardliners want to 
“build up the US’s strategic 
strength beyond the limits 
permitted by the 1979 accord. 

The main American charges 
are: 

1 Soviet testing and deploy- 


ment of the SS25 mobile 
intercontinental ballistic mis- 
sile violates Sait 2*s provision 
that permits only one new 
1CBM for each superpower. 
Moscow had previously in- 
formed the US that its new 
1CBM would be the SSX24. 

2 The Soviet Union has been 
encoding messages emitted 
during missile testing in such a 
way as to prevent the US from 
verifying that the Salt 2 ac- 
cord is bring adhered to. 

3 Some senior members of the 
US Administration have 
claimed that the Soviet Union 
has exceeded the Salt 2 ceiling 
of 2,200 strategic nuclear mis- 
siles and heavy bombers for 
each superpower. However, 
the President did not rite this 
as a reason for his derision to 
break out of the agreement 

4 The US claims that the 
construction of a big new 


Moscow meat contaminated 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The 500-strong British com- 
munity resident in Moscow 
has been warned not to buy 
meat, especially veal and pork, 
in local markets following the 
discovery' by French experts 
that veal on sale in the popular 
Central Market contained ra- 
diation some 10 times the ECC 
standard level. 

Tbe warning, issued in a 
circular from the British Em- 
bassy, has increased concern 
among the whole foreign com- 
munity of around &500 about 
the effectiveness of foods 
checks which diplomats have 
been. assured by the Kremlin 
are being carried out rigorous- 
ly in the wake of the 
Chernobyl disaster. 

The British warning was 


followed yesterday by a special 
meeting at the embassy, where 
anxious members of tbe com- 
munity were invited to ques- 
tion a senior radiation expert 
whom journalists presort were 
requested nut to identify. 
Many mothers were worried 
about feeding young children 
with Soviet produce. 

Tbe British circular, also 
distributed to the Australian, 
New Zealand and Canadian 
Embassies, saitLfThe French 
Embassy last week analysed a 
piece of veal bought in the 
Moscow Central Market and 
found it contained a radiation 
level of around 6,000 
becquerels per kilogramme for 
caesium 137. some 10 times 
the acceptable level recently 


fixed by the European Com- 
munity on produce from east- 
ern Europe.” 

Many other foreign embas- 
sies have issued precautionary 
advice to their nationals here, 
often on a confidential basis 
designed to avoid offending 
tbe Soviet authorities. 

Britons at yesterday's meet- 
ing, the first of its kind since 
Chernobyl, were told that, 
after considerable persuasion, 
tbe Foreign Office in London 
had agreed to buy monitoring 
equipment for the embassy to 
conduct its own radiation 
checks on Moscow food. 

At present, samples of food 
have to be sent to Britain for 
analysis.

radar station at Krasnoyarsk is 
in breach of the 1972 Anti- 
Ballistic Missile Treaty as it 
has the “inherent potential” to 
help protect the Soviet Union 
against a missile attack. 

The Soviet replies are: 

1 The SS25 is not a new 
missile but a modernized 
version of the elderly SSI 3. 
Modernization is permitted 
under Salt 2 so long as there is 
no more than a 5 per cent 
increase in a missile's throw- 
weighL 

2 The Soviet Union denies 
that its encoding practices are 
impeding US verification of 
its missile tests. Encoding is 
only forbidden under Salt 2 if 
it hampers verification. Mos- 
cow has repeatedly offered to 
discuss with the US what 
information should or should 
not be coded, but this has not 
been taken up by the US side. 

Five-point 
plan after 
Chernobyl 

From Richard Owen 
Strasbourg 

The EEC Commission yes- 
terday released a five-point 
plan of action in view of the 
Chernobyl accident, and said 
it would put forward further 
detailed proposals by the end 
of next month. 

As an interim measure, the 
Commission wants a network 
of “mutual assistance” set up. 
with a centre of information in 
each member stale. 

But officials said the EEC 
was hampered by the insis- 
tence of some stales that 
nuclear safety was a matter of 
national competence, a refer- 
ence to British and French 
resistance to supranational 
controls. 

The Commission’s five 
goals are: revision of _ the 
Euratom Treaty on monitor- 
ing dangerous levels of radio- 
activity and disposing of 
waste, with a request to the 
Council of Ministers to con- 
sider an inspection force to 
ensure health and safety stan- 
dards; harmonizing safety cri- 
teria for nuclear plants, and 
limiting radioactive emissions 
along The lines of existing 
restrictions on industrial pol- 
lution; an effective exchange 
of information on nuclear 
alerts; initiatives ensuring an 
EEC voice on international 
bodies such as the Interna- 
tional Atomic Energy Agency 
MAEA): and funding research 
into accident prevention. 

The Commission said sev- 
eral member states had 
pressed for post-Chernobyl 
action, including West Ger- 
many. Belgium. Luxembourg 
and Ireland. Ireland is to raise 
the question of Sellafield when 
environment ministers meet 
today in Luxembourg, and 
will press its demand for an 
EEC nuclear inspectorate. 

• VIENNA; The board of 
governors of the IAEA met 
yesterday to discuss a working 
paper recommending that the 
money spent on safety pro- 
grammes should be doubled 
from the present £4 million a 
year (Richard Bassett writes). 

• HELSINKI: Instrument er- 
ror was the most likely cause 
of the sudden peak in radioac- 
tivity measured on Monday 
night at Kotka in southern 
Finland, the Radiological Pro- 
tection Board announced yes- 
terday (Olli Kivinen writes). 


3 Moscow has strongly denied 
that it has exceeded Salt 2 
limits on missiles and bomb- 
ers. a claim which would seem 
to be borne out by the 1987 
military posture statement by 
the US Joint Chiefs of Staff. 
Unlike the US, the Soviet 
Union had to destroy more 
than 300 missiles in order to 
comply with Salt 2 limits. 

4 The Soviet Union says that 
the Krasnoyarsk radar station, 
which has not yet been com- 
pleted, is intended to keep 
track of its own satellites and 
not to protect against missile 
attack, and therefore does not 
violate the ABM treaty. It 
retorts that US upgrading of 
its radar station at Thule in 
Greenland is in breach of the 
treaty as tbe station is not 
situated on US national 
territory. 

The Soviet counter-charges 
are: 


1 The construction of two big 
new radar stations at Robins 
Air Force base in Georgia and 
at Good fellow Air Force base 
in Texas and the upgrading of 
two others at Beale Air Force 
base in California and Otis Air 
Force base in Massachusetts 
are violations of the ABM 
treaty. This is denied by the 
US. 

2 Last December's testing of 
an X-ray laser weapon in 
Nevada as part of President 
Reagan's Star Wars space 
defence research programme 
was a violation of ihc ABM 
treaty. This was denied by 
Washington, which argued 
that the treaty permits re- 
search into ballistic missile 
defences. Moscow riposted 
that the tesL which involved a 
nuclear explosion, had moved 
the Star Wars programme 
from the research to the 
development stage of a new 
anti-ballistic missile system. 


From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

President Mitterrand has 
again expressed “extreme 
reservations” on two contro- 
versial government Bills ap- 
proved by his Cabinet 
yesterday: one concerning the 
privatization of a public televi- 
sion channel, the other 
immigration. 

Virtually every Bill intro- 
duced by the new right-wing 
Government has met with M 
Mitterrand's disapproval. So 
far, however, M Mitterrand 
has done nothing to block the . 
Government's actions, but that 
may be because no Bills or 
decrees have yet come up for 
his signature. 

Under the Aodovisuat Bill 
approved yesterday, a new 
national commission for com- 
munication and freedom is to 
be set up to oversee standards 
in television and radio, and to I 
carry out the privatization of 
the first and oldest French 
television channel, TF1. which 
is to be sold to the bidder with 
the most attractive offer in 
terms both of quality and 
price. 

The commission, which re- 
places and expands tbe powers 
of the High Authority set up 
| by tbe Socialists in 1982, will 
also oversee the reattribution 
of the licences of the two 
existing private television 
channels — channels 5 and 6 ■ 
The much-criticized contracts 
with the present operators of 
those channels, which were 
drawn np by the Socialists 
earlier this year, are to be 
annulled. 

President Mitterrand's de- 
cision to grant tbe licence for 
ths fifth channel to a Fran co- 
Italian team caused an uproar 
at the time, particularly be- 
cause of the favourable condi- 
tions granted to the new 
channel, and in view of the fact 
that no other offers were 
apparently even considered. 

The Government has decid- 
ed that 40 per cent of the 
shares for TF1 are to be sold 
on tbe open market to tbe 
general public. Ten per cent 
will be offered to the channel's 
employees, and the remaining 
50 per cent reserved for the 
group which takes over the 
channel. No foreigner will be 
allowed to hold more than 20 
per cent of the shares. 

Tbe independent commis- 
sion, which is to choose the 
new operator for TF1, will 
have nine members. 

Under the Immigration Bill, 
also approved yesterday, con- 
ditions for entry into France 
for a long-term stay by for- 
eigners are to be tightened, 
and the renewal of existing i 
residents' permits made much 
tougher. At the same time, tbe 
expulsion of illegal immi- 
grants or foreigners who com- 
mit certain crimes is to be 
made easier. 


Pilots defy 
jail threat 
and refuse 
to fly 

Athens — Most Olympic 
Airways international and do- 
mestic flights were cancelled 
yesterday after Greek pilots 
refused to work under the 
Government's mobilization 
orders, according to which 
they must work or face jail 
icrms of from five to ten years 
(Mario Modiano writes). 

The state-owned airline's 
380 pilots and 120 flight 
engineers, who are pressing for 
a 6 per com salary increase, 
had threatened to stage a 
month of wild-cat strikes 
starting next Saturday. 

Mr George Papadimitriou. 
the Communications Minis- 
ter. said they would face the 
same penalties if they resorted 
to an earlier ruse of abstaining 
from food and sleep in order 
to incapacitate themselves for 
work on doctors' orders. 

Islands claim 

Buenos Aires — .Argentina 
commemorated the day of 
their “affirmation of 
sovereignly” over the Falk- 
land Islands with a Mass at the 
military chapel of Stella 
Maris, 'attended by the Minis- 
ters of Interior and Defence, a 
congressional delegation and 
high-ranking officers.

‘The terror of the Holocaust should not be forgotten 

Anti-Semitism 


German 


condemned 


by Waldheim 


From Richard Bassett, Vienna 


A beaming Dr Kurt Wald- 
heim yesterday gave his first 
press conference since win- 
ning the Austrian presidential 
election. Exuding confidence, 
the President-elect delivered 
bis dearest and most cogent 
condemnation of anti-Semi- 
tism to dale. 

•‘The terror of the Holoi 
caust should not be 

forgotten," Dr Waldheim 

said, adding that the media 
campaign against him was 
'•understandable in the light of 
ihe horrors of that time". Dr 
Waldheim said he would visit 
the site of Austria's principal 
concentration camp, at 
Mauthausen on the Danube, 
in the near future. 

Despite attempts by his staff 
to persuade journalists to 
address themselves to the 
problems of Dr Waldheim’s 
future, he faced a barrage of 
questions about his past 

The disappearance of two 
British commandos in the Bal- 
kans during the war was a re- 


signatory countries of the 
Austrian State Treaty. 

A number of countries had 
already congratulated him, he 
said, and support from the 
Arab world had been over- 
whelming. But Dr Waldheim 
refused to be drawn on what 
his response would be to Col- 
onel Gadaffi’s congratulatory 


telegram, which praised him 
for striking a “Wow against 
Zionism". 

Dr Waldheim dismissed the 
threat of demonstrations 
against him should be set foot 
in certain Western countries. 
But he admitted that his 
lawyers were yesterday meet- 
ing officials from the US 
Department of Justice to 
present Dr Waldheim's case 
for not being put on any 
“watch-list" of undesirable 
aliens. 

“I have nothing to fear and I

Dr Waldheim was obvious- 
ly pleased that his election had 
been followed by the resigna- 
tion of the Austrian Chancel- 
lor, Dr Fred Sinowatz, and be

Government to govern and 
that his duties as President

Lawyer seeks to negotiate deal with Marcos 


From Keith Dalton 

Manila 


Former President Marcos of 
the Philippines is willing to 
recognize the Government of 
President Aquino and hand 
over $2.1 billion (£1.3 billion} 
in exchange for an amnesty 
and the right to return home, a 
leading Manila newspaper 
said yesterday. 

The Philippine TrUmnesHA 
Mr Marcos agreed to the 


possible compromise last 
mouth during five days of talks 
with a Manila lawyer, Mr 
Joan David. During the talks, 
Mr Marcos and his wife, 
Imetda, admitted to owning 
assets worth $3 billion (£2 
bflHonX the newspaper said, 
quoting Mr David. 


A possible arrangement was 
a 70-30 per cent split of the 
Marcos assets, the paper said. 
Using Mr Marcos's figures. 


this would give the former 
leader $900 tmllioa. The 
Aquino Government has previ- 
ously discussed a 70-30 split of 
the Marcos fortune, which it 
estimates at more than $5 
billion. 

This arrangement would 
boost the country's dwindling 
foreign exchange reserves, as- . 
sist the economic recovery 


programme and avoid pro- 
tracted court battles, Mr. De- 


tracted court battles, Mr 
rid told the paper. 


The Philippine Tribune said 
Mr David would discuss the 
possible compromise deal with 
Mrs Aquino. However, a pres- 
idential spokeswoman, Mrs 
Alice Valladolid, said Mr 
David was not a g o ve r nment 
emissary and toe offer would 
probably not be considered. 
Mrs Valladolid said ministers 
were aware of the published 
reports of Mr David's “self- 
imposed" mission but had not 

discussed the matter. . 


Iraqi minister ‘entirely satisfied 9 with visit to France 


From Diana Geddes 
Paris 


Mr Tareq Aziz, the Iraqi 
Deputy Prime Minister and 
Foreign Minister, returned to 
Baghdad yesterday “entirely 
satisfied" with his two-day 
official visit to Paris, despite 
recent French moves to nor- 
malize relations with Iraq's 
number one enemy, Iran. 

Commenting on the Fran- 
co- Iranian rapprochement, Mr 
Aziz saitfc-We respect our 
friends and we respect their 
political choices. If our friends 
wish to establish normal rela- 
tions with Tehran, that is their 
affair. We in no way see it as a 
mark of hostility. There is no 
doud in the sky of Franco- 
Iraqi relations." 

Since the change in govern- 
ment in France .three months 


ago, Paris has been attempting 
an increasingly difficult bal- 
ancing act m its relations 
between Iran and Iraq, seeking 
to improve its previously 
markedly cool relations with 
the former, while not damag- 
ing its friendship with the 
latter. 


France, Iraq's most impor- 
tant arms supplier after the 
USSR, has always taken Iraq's 
side in the five-year Iran-Iraq 
war. However, Paris is anx- 
ious to normalize relations 
with Iran in the hope that 
Tehran will be able to put 
pressure on the pro-Iranian 
kidnappers of the nine French 
hostages being held in Beirut, 
to secure their release. 


The visit to Paris last month 
of Mr Ali Reza Moayeri, the 
Iranian Deputy Prime Minis- 


ter, marked a turning point in 
Fran co- Iranian relations, be- 
devilled by three key issues 
since Ayatollah Khomeini 
came to power the repayment 
by France of a $1 billion debt 
incurred under the Shah; the 
sale of French arms to Iraq; 
and the anti-Iranian activities 
of opponents of the Ayatollah 
Khomeini's regime living in 
exile in France. 

During last month's visit, 
Mr Moayeri demanded the 
extradition of Iranians living 
in France "with blood on their 
hands" and asked France to 
observe a “positive 
neutrality" in the Iran-Iraq 
war. While Iran accepted that 
existing arms contracts with 
Iraq had to be respected, it 
hoped there would be no new 
ones. 

Mr Aziz declined at his 


press conference here on Tues- 
day to comment on press 
reports that Iraq had recently 
asked France for more arms. 

He also declined to com- 
ment on the problem of the 
repayment of Iraq's huge debt 
to France, totalling 23 billion 
francs (£2.1 billion). Iraq has 
in the past paid pan of its 
arms bill in the form of oil 
shipments to France, but the 
recent collapse of oil prices 
means that the terms of 
repayment will have to be 
renegotiated. 

Mr Aziz insisted that his 
talks with President Mitt- 
errand and M Jacques Chirac, 
the Prime Minister, and other 
ministers had been "very 
fruitful” and that be had 
achieved afl his objectives, 
without revealing what those 
objectives were. 


Asked about the so-called 
“voluntary" departure from 
Paris to Iraq on Saturday of 
Mr Massoud Rajavi, leader of 
the principal banian opposi- 
tion movement, the People's 
Mujahedin, Mr Aziz simply 
commented that Mr Rajavi 
had been given a warm wel- 
come by Iraqi authorities. 

Mr Rajavi, who had been 
living in exile for the past five- 
years in France, left for Bagh- 
dad after a police raid on his 
borne early on Saturday 
morning. 

M Chirac had earlier 
warned that France could not 
tolerate the presence of politi- 
cal refugees who abused the 
conditions of their asylum, 
though he made it clear that 
there was no question of 
France granting ban's request 
for extradition. 


Mr Rajavi appears to have 
been preparing his departure 
fra* some time. His supporters 
claim that 1,000 Mujahedin 
sympathizers, including his 
own wife, had preceded him to 
Iraq in recent weeks. French 
sources pm the number closer 
to 300. Most of the estimated 
300 Mujahedin supporters . 
still in France are expected to 
follow shortly. 


US-backed Contras fighting 
the Sandinista Government ot 
Nicaragua have released eight 
West German civilians they 
had held prisoner for more 
than three weeks. 

The captives were freed into 
the bands of the Nicaraguan 
Army 30 minutes after a 
ceasefire to facilitate their 
release expired. The West 
German Government had ap- 
pealed to the US to .intercede 
with the Contras. 

The eight, four men ana 
four women, were kidnapped 
during an attack on a refugee 
resettlement project in eastern 
Nicaragua, where they had 
volunteered to build homes 
for peasants displaced by the 
guerrilla war. 

Concern for their safety had 

grown since Friday when ar- , 
rangements for their handover | 
to two West German diplo- ! 
mats fen through. \ 

Chancellor Kohl then ap- ! 
pealed to President Reagan to ' 
use his influence with the 1 
Contras to get the captives | 
released. Mr Reagan has just 
begun a third attempt to j 
persuade the US Congress to i 
renew military and other aid 
worth $100 million to the 
Contras. 

Mr KobJ also appealed to 
President Ortega of Nicaragua 
to extend the ceasefire to give 
the rebels a second chance to 
let the prisoners go before any 
attempt was made by the 
Nicaraguan Army to free 
them. 

The Defence Ministry in 
Managua announced that the 
West Germans were handed 
over on Monday evening, 30 
minutes after the ceasefire 


An official inquiry 
yesterday into a night of 
violence in Bilbao, in which 
£ta sympathizers dashed with 
police after they bad brotea 
op the funeral procession of a 
member of toe Basque sepa- 
ratist organization who died in 
jafl- 

More than 40 people were 
fojamL including the Baber 
and sister of Jos6 Asensio, 
aged 27, the Eta man found 
dea^ on Sunday in a m a ximum 
security prison, whore be was 

serving* nine-year sentence. 

Police wielding night-sticks 
made paB-hearers put down 
toe coffin to a central Bilbao 
street and drove off with f t to* 
local cemetay. The burial 
service was held there 
yesterday. 

As the crowd — most cf than 
supporters of the extreme left- 
wing Hem Batasuna (People's 
Unity ) party, the political wing 
of ETA - turned on the 
j security forces, according to 
eye-witness accounts, two po- 
licemen in plain clothes fired 
20 shots into toe air, claiming 
ritflt they had to defend a 
colleague who was being 
attacked. 

The local civil governor, an 
official representing the Ma- 
drid Interior Ministry, had 
refused to grant permission to 
the party to parade the coffin 
through Bilbao and then hold 
what they called a “homage 


expired The Contras also 
released IS Nicaraguan 
prisoners. 

• BONN: The West German 
Foreign Minister, Herr Hans- 
Dietrich Genscher, said yes- 
terday that the released west i 
Germans were all well and! 
would soon be brought to i 
Managua (Renter reports). 

He also appealed to West 
Germans eager to assist 
Nicaragua’s left-wing Govern- 
ment to keep out of areas 
where fighting was raging to 
avoid a repetition of the 
kidnapping. 

He said it had been toe most 
complicated case of its kind he 
had known in 12 years as 
“Foreign Minister, and warned 
that any future similar cases 
might not end so happily. 


Mr Bani Sadr, the former 
Iranian President, who fled 
into exile with Mr Rajavi in 
July 1981, has said that no 
pressure has been put on him 
to leave France. Mr Bani Sadr, 
who broke with Mr Rajavi in 
1 984 over the latter's growing 
links with Iraq, condemned 
what he described as a “dis- 
guised expulsion" by the 
French authorities. 


The same official ordered 
yesterday’s inquiry in to wh y 
the coffin uddeut occurred, 
and why the police fired. 

“When police Mows mean 
votes" was the succinct com- 
ment of a Bilbao daily yester- 
day. Whatever Che Inquiry 
decides, sod police action at a 
funeral right in the middle of 
toe general election campaign 
has already done the damage. 

Before the interrupted fu- 
neral, the family of the dead 
Eta man had an non need court 


anthorities-They complain 
that, although Asensio suf- 
fered from tuberculosis and 
had taken part in hunger 
strikes, he had not received 
proper medical attention. A 
prison autopsy found no signs 
of violence. 

Asensio, whose sentence 
had been for illegal possession 
of arms, had been doe for 
release for good conduct when 
he died.

Hawke warns Australia 
of harder work and a 
lower standard of living 


Mr Bob Hawke, the Prime 
Minister, delivered a national- 
ly-broadcast television ad- 
dress to Australia last night, 
which was as much a reasser- 
. tion of his leadership- as an 
attempt to tackkNeconomic 
problems seen here as assum- 
ing crisis proportions. 

While the Prime Minister 
echoed Mr Paul Keating, the 
Treasurer, who set the eco- 
nomic debate going in May, he 
also tried to moderate the 
alarm caused by Mr Keating's 
‘‘banana republic” warning, . 
which caught the Government ’ 
off-balance and created strain 
in the key Cabinet 
relationship. 

The message — that the 
nation is living beyond its 
means — was the same. Speak- 
ing forcefully and earnestly, 
Mr Hawke exercized his 
vaunted communication skills 
to want Australians that a 
worsening trade deficit meant 
that they, would have to accept 
a lower standard of living and 
work harder for it. 

The current account deficit 
has topped £300 million a 
month for more than a year, 
and in April stood at £705 
million. 

The economic policy review 
outlined by Mr Hawke leaves 
intact the Government’s wage 
accord with the trade unions, 
which has brought industrial

peace while making produc- 
tion costs uncompetitivdy 
high with most of Australia's 
trading partners. 

But ' the Government is 
determined to extract, conces- 
sions- from the. Australian 
Council of Trade Unions 
(ACTU) on delaying benefits 
from the last stage of the 
accord, while simultaneously 
urging manufacturers to in- 
crease industrial investment 
and reducing public spending. 

One innovation which 
might, be considered surpris- 
ing for a Labor administration 
is the introduction of commu- 
nity service for dole recipi- 
ents, specifically teenagers. 
The Government has also 
promised incentives and assis- 
tance for heavy industry and 
exporters of high technology 
products. 

The Prime Minister's ap- 
peal was to national pride. 
Australians were “a great peo- 
ple, with guts”, he said. As 
examples of those whose ex- 
cellence had won internation- 
al success he cited Joan 
Sutherland, the opera singer, 
John Bertrand, the yachtsman 
and Robert de Castella, the 
marathon runner. 

. To boost a fundamentally 
weak manu&cturing sector, 
Mr Hawke announced a “buy 

Australian*' campaign , in 


which consumers would be 
to look for a green and 
Id logo on locally-made 
products. 

But the focus of the review 
remains the unions. The 
Prime Minister said the Gov- 
ernment would not interfere 
with the current 2.5 per cent 
wage claim before the Arbitra- 
tion Commission, but would 
seek to have the 3 per cent 
national superannuation deal 
with ACTU spread over two 
years, and would also want the 
next national wage deal linked 
to depreciation of the Austra- 
lian dollar. 

Tax cuts agreed with the 
ACTU may be delayed be- 
yond September 1, but would 
still be introduced no later 
than December 1. 

Other initiatives include 
improving access for foreign 
investors, where proposals 
demonstrate positive trade 
benefits, and stre amlining the 
public service. 

The economic debate re- 
sumes tomorrow at the annual 
conference of state premiers. 
Mr Hawke said last night that 
the conference would involve 
tough decisions. 

So too, he added, would the 
August budget, but a spending 
review had already identified 
savings of about £500 million. 


day imposed what is 
to be the heaviest sentence yet 
for a drug offence in Australia, 
when a man who controlled

years with no parole. 

James Shepherd, aged 45, 
was said to have been a close 
associate of Terrence Dark, 
head of the Mr Asia drug op- 
eration, who died in a British 
prison in 1983 while serving a 
life sentence. 

Shepherd organized heroin 
shipments between Australia 
and Singapore, using young 
women as couriers.

their brain-dead child. The 
heart was rasbed to the hospi- 
tal in southern California late 
on Tuesday. 

The parents of baby Jesse, 
Deana Binkley, aged 17, and 
Jesse Sepulveda, aged 26 — 
who, like the donor parents, 
are not married — were ap- 
pearing on an American TV 
talk show when toe y were told 
that there was a heart 
available. 

Doctors at Loma Linda said 
after four hours of snrgery that 


the child's new heart was 
beating normally, and on its 
own. 

“He is strong, things look 
good and be is In stable 
condition," a hospital spokes- 
man said yesterday. 

Doctors said that the new 
heart was an excellent match 
for the child, who had been 
rejected for a transplant last 
week because his parents were 
not legally married. 

Tbe hospital agreed to the 


operation if a donor could be 
found after toe baby's grand- 
parents became its legal 
guardians. 

The donor was born in 
Grand Rapids on May 25, toe 
day 
sred 


same day that baby Jesse was 
an emergency 


delivered by 
caesarean section. 

The brain-dead child was 
flown to Norton air force base, 
just a few miles from Loma 
Linda medical centre, which is 
60 miles from Los Angeles. 


Court puts 
wishes 
of parents 
first 

From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

The US Supreme Court has 
ruled that tbe federal Govern- 
ment cannot intervene to 
force hospitals to treat severe- 
ly handicapped children over 
the objections of their parents. 

The five-to-three ruling, 
which is a setback to the 
Reagan Administration, said 
that the Government had no 
authority to regulate private 
medical decisions and could 
not use laws protecting the 
handicapped to direct hospi- 
tals to provide life-saving 
treatment 

The 1973 anti-discrimina- 
tion law did not authorize the 
Secretary of Health and Hu- 
man Services ‘"to give unsolic- 
ited advice either to parents, 
to hospitals or to state officials 
who are faced with difficult 
treatment decisions concern- 
ing handicapped children'*. 

The court said the parents, 
not the hospitals, should de- 
cide if medical treatment 
should be given. But the 
hospitals could still be threat- 
ened with a loss of federal 
fends. 

In 1982, an infant known as 
“Baby Doe" was born in 
Indiana with Down's Syn- 
drome and a blocked oesopha- 
gus, and was permitted to die. 

The Administration 
promptly issued rules to force 
hospitals to treat such infants 
even when the parents 
objected.

SOWETO 


O n ihe cold and foggy 
morning ofJune 16. 1976 
- 10 years ago next 
Monday"— thousands of 
Soweto school-children 
marched in protest against a govern- 
ment decree making Afrikaans one 
of the compulsory languages of 
instruction in black secondary 
schools. Some sang, some gave the 
clenched fist “black power" salute, 
others carried pteca rate-proclaiming 
“Afrikaans is the language of the 
oppressors ” and “if we must do' 
Afrikaans. Vorster must do Zulu". 

The ensuing clashes with armed 
police started a chain reaction of 
violence which soon engulfed other 
black townships, costing more than 
700 lives, nearly all of them young 
blacks, in little more than a year. The 
upheaval marked the end of a period, 
when blacks were more remarkable 
for their stoic endurance ofapartheid 
than for thejr rebellion against it: the 
seeds of the even greater unrest of the 
past 22 months were sown then. 

Much has changed in Soweto since 
that morning 10 years ago. and yet 
much remains the same. "Hie over- 
powering impression is still of the 
drab monotony of endless rows of 
identical brick bungalows, bare and 
derelict open spaces — teased by 
evety gust of wind into miniature 
dust’ storms and scarred by the 
wrecks of abandoned cars — poor 
roads, piles of reruse at street comers 
and the lack of tall buildings, 
pavements, trees and parks. 

Eten without the added ingredient 
of politically-motivated strife. 
Soweto is a violent and dangerous 
place. Last year, according to police 
figures, there were nearly 1.700 
murders. Social life centres on some 
4.000 shebeens (illicit drinking dens) 
and drunkenness .is a major cause of 
6*ime. Increasingly, it is difficult to 
distinguish the political from the 
purely criminal violence. In one 
district, nicknamed “Beirut”, young 
“Comrades" gather at night to stone 
police patrols, but also to comman- 
deer the cars of other Sowetans. 

Soweto - the name is simply an 
acronym for South Western Town- 
ships — is Johannesburg’s biggest 
“location”, meaning the segregated 
area' set 'aside for blacks on the 
outskirts of towns and cities (there 
arc separate residential areas for 
Indians and mixed-race coloureds). 
About 10 miles south-west of the 
mother city. Soweto sprawls over 
half a dozen low, featureless hills, 
covering nearly 40 square miles. 

It is home, at a conservative 
estimate, to 1.250.000 people, two 
and half limes more than the white 
population of Johannesburg. Zulus 
are the biggest group among its 
inhabitants, but every tribe in South 
Africa is represented there. Despite 
early government efforts to enforce 
ethnic zoning, it is a true melting- 
pot. perhaps the most polyglot, de- 
tribalized and politicized black 
community on the continent. 

Large numbers of rural blacks 
were drawn to Johannesburg from 
the moment of its birth as a rough 
mining camp after the discovery of 
gold in 18S6. By 1895 the city had a 
population of 80.000. of whom half 
were black, mostly illiterate, un- 
skilled male labourers. Many were 


housed in mine compounds. Others 
lived, along with coloureds and some 
poor whites, in a slum area on the 
western side of town. 

In 1904. after an outbreak of 
bubonic plague, the slum was razed, 
and many of its African inhabitants 
were resettled on land adjoining a 
sewerage works at Kiipspruil some 
miles to the south. So Soweto was 
bom. It was not until the 1930s, 
however, that Orlando East (npned 
after a Johannesburg councillor), 
was built, the first of the 28 separate 
townships that have merged to form 
what is now Greater Soweto. 

Stimulated by the demand for 
labour in war-time industries and by 
the desperate poverty of the rural 
reserves, the decisive influx of 
Africans occurred between 1 939 and 
1945. when Johannesburg’s black 
population swelled from 244.000 to 
400.000. Huge shanty settlements 
sprang up. In the 1950s and early 
1 960s house-building proceeded 
apace, to accommodate both the 
existing squatters and thousands of 
Africans evicted from black suburbs 
of Johannesburg under the newly- 
defined doctrine of apartheid. 

The spartan conditions in Soweto 
reflected not only a reluctance to 
spend more money than was abso- 
lutely necessary, but also the doc- 
trine” that blacks were “temporary 
sojourners" in urban areas, to be 
tolerated only so long as their labour 
was needed. It was a matter of 
deliberate policy to make life there as 
unappealing as possible so as to 
discourage permanent settlement. 
All the normal amenities of a town — 
old-peoples’ homes, clinics, orphan- 
ages. creches, business, industry, 
proper shops and recreational facili- 
ties — were entirely lacking or 
severely restricted. 

T he legacy of the past is not 
easily undone, but since 
1976 important changes, 
have taken place. One of 
the most striking has been 
the supply of electricity to all 
Soweto’s 107.000 homes. Ten years 
ago. only one in five had any 
electricity at all. It is still a novelty, 
and residents complain about the 
high charges, but in time it should 
reduce the use for heating and- 
cooking of coal sioves which, espe- 
cially in the winter months, smother 
Soweto in a choking blanket of smog. 
Only some 7.000 houses have been 
built since 1976. compared with a 
shortage conservatively estimated at 
33.000 units and more realistically at 
80,000. Nearly all these new homes 
are in up-market enclaves such as 
Prestige Park in Diepkloof Exten- 
sion. populated by the emerging 
black urban middle-class of lawyers, 
doctors, and businessmen and con- 
veniently sited dose to an entry-exit 
point on the motorway by-passing 
Soweto. Some of the houses, with 
their swimming pools and car ports, 
would not be out of place in' the 
plush while suburbs of northern 
Johannesburg. But it remains a 
ghetto, “a gilded cage" in the words 
of one resident. 

More than 90 per cent of Soweto's 
houses are still of the “matchbox" 
variety. There are two basic types. 
One. of 40 square metres, contains 



As if it was yesterday: the body of a student is carried away during the Soweto school riots 10 years ago 


two small bedrooms, a living room 
and a kilchen/dining room, with an 
outside toilet and cold water tap. The 
second, covering an extra four 
square metres, includes an internal 
toilet/bathroom. The small plots - 
allow- some expansion, aod in recent 
years, many residents have been 
allowed to tack on an extra room; 
Occupancy averages around 12 per 
house. 

Some 100,000 Sowetans are male 
migrants from the tribal homelands 
living in often squalid conditions in 
barrack-like hostels or lodging with 
relatives and friends. Soweto is a 


dormitory town par excellence. Only 
a tiny fraction of its inhabitants work 
there. 

M ost travel by train and 
bus. but others come 
in their own cars -or 
mini-bus taxis operat- 
ed by local entrepot 
neurs. They spend more than 70 per 
cent of their disposable income' in 
Johannesburg's shops. Shopping fa- 
cilities in Soweto itself are jmpiov-^ 
ing - four _ supermarkets _haye . 
opened there in the last five years— 
but still cannot compete. 


ICHRONOLOGYI 


1886: Founding of Johannesburg 
after discovery of gold. 

1904: Outbreak of bubonic plague; 
Johannesburg's blacks moved 
to area of modem Soweto. 

1913: Africans barred from buying 
land outside the reserves. 

1922: Natives banned from urban 
areas except to "minister to 
the needs of the white man”. 

1948: National Party wins power. 
Apartheid starts. 

1.955-60: Sophiatown, black suburb 
of Johannesburg, razed and 
inhabitants moved to Soweto. 


1965-76: House-building slowed in 
bid to force blacks back to 
tribal homelands. 

1976-77: Uprising by Soweto school- 
children. . . 

1978: Restoration of 99-year, 
leasehold. 

1984: Riots in black townships south 
of Johannesburg spread to 
rest of country; more than 
1 ,600 killed in 22 months. 

1985: Government recognizes 

permanence of urban blacks. 

1986: Government announces 
restoration of freehold, 
abolition of pass laws. 


•' In political terms, the most impor- 
tant change has been the 
government's recognition of the 
. permanence of urban blacks and the 
pending abolition of the pass laws. 
Some 250.000 of Soweto's inhabit- 
-ants. previously illegal; wiU. at least- 
in theory, be able to seek work 
openly wjJhoutfearqf arrest, bi-1983- 
about 82,000 "houses in Soweto were 
- offered Jp their tenants for purchase 
on 99-year leases at-an average cost 
■ of about 1 , 500 rands (£375 at today's . 
j-ate), After, a slow start, some 33;000 
have now been sold..-. •. 

There is still huge distrust of the 
government's motives, but the grow- 
ing self-confidence of Sowetans is 
palpable. The structures of political 
resistance and organization forged in 
the 1976 upheaval have kept in 
check the mindless violence which, 
in many less developed townships, 
has filled the vacuum left: by the 
decay of government-sponsored ad- 
ministration. “It may be that oar 
freedom is bring won in the Eastern 
Cape”, one' Soweto resident said, '■ 
referring to the region which has seen 
some of the most violent distur- . 
bances in the last few days. “But the 
future rulers will come from here."

It was 50 years ago this week 
thaL as a young RAF flight 
lieutenant, he signed the order 
for the world's first jet engine. 
It was one of the most 
significant orders in the histo- 
ry of engineering. If Whittle's 
engine had been pursued ener- 
getically and had been ready 
for the air three years later in 
1939. as it could have been, it 
is certain that the Germans 
would not have dared to move 
against Britain and France 
until the Luftwaffe had at least 
caught up. How did wc miss 
the chance? 

Whittle had his early ideas 
as an RAF Cranwell College 
cadet, a working-class boy 
who gained entrance as an 
apprentice after a friendly drill 
sergeant had given him an 
exercise and diet chart so that 
his height could be stretched 
to the 5fl 3in minimum. 

First he thought of a propel- 
ling jet created by a fan driven 
by a piston engine. Then one 
day towards the end of 1929 
he saw in a flash that he 
should swap the piston engine 
for a turbine to drive a 
compressor, which would 
mean just one moving part 
instead of hundreds. He was 
just 22 at the time. 

Pilot Officer Whittle was 
summoned to the Air Minis- 
try's scientific research labora- 
tory in south Kensington, 
where the director. Dr 
A.A. Griffith, told him that 
his assumptions » - crc ff oxer- 
optimistic Griffith did pci! 
reveal (hat he had been work- 
ing on a project of his own for 
some years in which the 
turbine was to be used to drive 
a propeller. Whittle returned 
to his squadron. 

.All the same, he filed his 
patents in 1930. The Air 
Ministry, which rejected his 
ideas, said there was no call 
for secrecy. As a result the 
patents "uere published 



given to Rolls-Royce, where it 
should have gone originally. 

Whittle's ultimate ambi- 
tion. to manufacture his jet 
engines, was frustrated when 
the established aero-engine 
companies said they would 
not tolerate competition from 
a state-funded company. 
Rolls-Royce led the pack. 
Power Jets, which founded an 
industry by selflessly giving its 
work lo its competitors 
throughout the war. was ruth- 
lessly closed by the coalition 
Government 


Whittle also founded 
the US jet industry 


Sir Frank: “I do not btotnriiy we were treated so ruthlessly*' 


throughout the world, a mar- 
vellous example of official- 
dom giving away secrets while 
keeping rubbish under wraps. 

Throughout the early 1930s 
Whittle pursued his project in 
the f3ce of indifference from 
engineering firms. The Air 
•Ministry sent him to Cam- 
bridge University in 1934 to 
read engineering: “I have al- 
ways acknowledged my debt 
to the RAF for my education. 
I had left school at 15.” 

German rival had all 
that he needed 


Whittle achieved a First just 
a$ he was setting up his own 
company. Power Jets. With 
two friends, former RAF offi- 
cers. he had persuaded a 
merchant bank to put up 
£2.000. The Air Ministry al- 
lowed him to work as chief 
engineer and technical cornuL 
tani to his company for five 
years “provided always that 
ihc work shall not in any 


one week exceed a total of six 
hours”. 

Not until 1939 did the Air 
Ministry concede that his tiny 
experimental engine was the 
basis of a power plant that 
could drive aeroplanes to 
unparalleled heights and 
speeds. By that lime about 
£20.000 had been spent while 
Whittle and a devoted but 
slender team gave not six 
hours, but seven long days a 
week, in ramshackle sur- 
roundings, sometimes forced 
to use reclaimed scrap metal. 

In contrast Hans von 
Ohain. Whittle’s German ri- 
val. had obtained from the 
piancmaker Ernst Heinkel all 
the resources he needed to 
build a jet plane, which flew in 
August 1939. a world first and 
nearly two years ahead of 
Whittle’s engine. 

In 1940 Whitehall look over 
Lhe Power Jets project.. They 
chose the car engine division 
of Rover to manufacture the 
jet. a disastrous decision that 
delayed the project for two 
years. Not until 1943 was it 


Today. ’Whittle, who lives 
outside Baltimore, denies bit- 
terness. although he agr e e s: 
“We were dealt with harshly. I 
was awarded £100.000 and 
given a knighthood, but I felt 
that the rest of the team 
should also have been award- 
ed something.” 

He never again worked on 
aero-engines, although his 
thinking was ahead of the 
inexperienced designers who 
led Britain into the peacetime 
jet age: “I could have contrib- 
uted more. In 1936 1 patented 
the by-pass engine, which 
came into service on airliners 
only in the 1960s. I do not 
know why we were treated so 
ruthlessly." This turbo-fen en- 
gine became an American 
innovation at that time. Whit- 
tle had founded their industry, 
loo. when one of his engines 
was flown across the Atlantic 
during the war. 

With the OM. Britain must 
be paying its last tribute to a 
genius who served his country 
beuer than it served him.

What shall we do 
about Auntie? 


Mr Leapman erroneously 
credits Donald Bavereioek 
and AJastair Milne with initi- 
ating hard-hitting, polmcal 
interviews on television in 
the entertainment pro- 
gramme Tonight, whereas it 
was an approach first intro- 
duced two years earlier on 
Panorama and ITN. I sup- 
pose Mr Leapman was 
searching for somethfing 
mod to say about Mr Milne, 
whom he displays as insolent, 
incompetent, and mightily 
pleased with himself with 
little justification. 

Though Mr Leapman has 
wasted space on trivial gos- 
sip, about how mediocre men 
were' edged out to make way 
for other mediocre men in 
mediocre posts, there is a lot 
of good stuff here. Stuart 
Young, Chairman of the 
BBC emerges as decent but 
politically naif in every sense, 
and unable to understand or 
control the menagerie of 
which be is nominally in 
charge. I say nominally be- 
cause the management are 
always determined to defeat 
the Governors, whom they 
despise. “Sodding 

Governors” is a phrase habit- 
ually used by BBC staff. 

For the most part the 
Governors are. a nondescript 
crew, easy victims for. meet 
Director Generals and BBC 
management boards, who 
have no intention of allowing 
the Governors to -govern, as 
the' Annan Committee on 
broadcasting in 197.7 ob- 
served Nothing has changed 
There was an uproar when 
the Governors broke Ihe 
convention that they are not 
allowed to see any pro- 
gramme before it goes out 
.however undesirable it may 
sound, by insisting on a 
previewing of the contentious 
Real Lives programme. The 
management then forced the 
Governors to reverse their 
original decision' that the 
programme should be 
cancelled. 

As for cartring the growing

left-wing bias of the once 
impartial BBC die Gover- 
nors haven’t a chance. They . 
are blinded with rtibbish 
about editorial integrity, and 
accept that the decision on 
what goes out should be left' 
to the staff, however bad their 
judgement, and whatever 
their political input may be. 

When the government makes 
a commotion, the Governors; 
huddle together, bleating that' 
the independence of the BBC 
is sacrosanct, though , they 
have abdicated responsibility 
for how it is to be exercised. 

Mr Leapman is of the 
opinion that this self-satisfied 
and inefficient Gargantuan 
bureaucracy, piled up by too 
much power, should be bro- 
ken up into bits. A board of 
part-time Governors, chosen 
haphazardly for representa- 
tive and not administrative, 
q uali ties, cannot run it effec- 
tively, particularly when the 
more or less whole time 
ChWman is out of his depth. 

Some bits should .be sold, 
with safeguards against news- 
paper proprietors acquiring 
them; and some .should be 
run as a public service in* 
smaller units. It is not possi- 
ble for a rebellious twelve- 
man board of management 
(supposedly, but not in prac- 
tice, the . servants of the 
Governors) who think they 
are the BBC. to make coher- 
ent an organization with a 
staff of 30,000. producing 
6.000 television programmes 
a year, with 26 “controllers” 
each asserting his or her right 
not to be interfered with. I 
agree with Mr Leapman that 
the future of the present BBC 
is downhill all the way.

The heart 
of great 
music 

— Paul Griffiths 


THE GREAT HAYDN 
QUARTETS 
ByHansKeDer ’■ . 

~ " “ Dent. £16.95 


Hans Keller coukl never have 
written a book about music, 
nor is this.to be understood as 
one. It is, rather, a book into 
and out of jmusic a book 
informed by a depth of com- 
prehension, a reverence ..Iot 
truth, and - a closeness of 
acquaintance suggestive more 
of religious than of aesthetic 
experience. For Keller .the 
proper, understand ngof great 
music was desperately impor- 
tant, demanding the applica- 
tion of every ^resource = qf 
selfhood It was also possible 
to be right, and equally possi- 
ble to be wrong: Keller's 
certainty in the present enter- 
prise is as awe-inspiring as the 
moral seriousness on which it

I doubt that one could be so 
sure, about anything, without 
possessing a personality ! as 
rally formed lively, and inte- 
grated as the structures Keller 
so admired in. Haydn's quar- 
tets. Tn' that sense his life's

it must be a cause for sadness

substantial- publication, 
should be appearing after fete 
dealt him the double .bar line 
last November: Yet. it is no 
trite, piety to say that he lives 
onin these pages. 

One is dealing here, though, 
with the. most selfless sort of 
autobiography. Keller's pur- 
pose is not to offer an interpre- 
tation of die great Haydn 
quartets, but rather to steerhis 
readers towards making the.

zoology of 
to a genius 


uliette BaiDot was the governess 
of Garangton, , the ran, slim. 

. very pretty, shy, severe, and. 
composed Swiss girl first 
glimpsed ip the letters of lady 
Ottoline being. interviewed at Oxford 
railway station (First Class Waiting 
Room of course). She married Julian 
Huxley after an. alarming and precipi- 
tative courtship [ involving much 
cGmbmg of the schoolroom stairs. 

She was green, she tells us, as an un- 
ripe apple.' The governess's view of 
Garsingtoit is also the young gufs 
view, the foreigner’s; and this gives it 
the edge over other more sophisticat- 
ed -summings-up .of life with the 
Morrells. She is quietly receptive, not 
-‘just to the imminence of Garsington 
celebrities, surprised when Siegfried 
Sassoon and Robert Graves turn up 
in military kOts One wintry day, knees 
raw with cold- She is good at 
describing the look of things, the 
decor of Garsington, the nice domes- 
tic details like the cosies that wept 
over the copper cans in which hot 
water was transported to the bed- 
rooms. These were crocheted, in . 
vivid flower patterns. 

Handwork, aits and crafts for 
women, keep recurring in this book. 
With the benefit, of hindsight, after 
many years of marriage to one of the 
world's experts In animal behaviour, 
Juliette; Huxley comes to see Jt as 
“displacement activity**: a human 
parallel to the grooming, feeding, 
preening of the animal world, provid- 
ing relief from emotional tensions. 
Hence, her mother's so intensive 
bobbin lacemaking, on the shores of 
Lake NeufchazeL Hence also Lady 
Ottolihe's obsessive stitching. In a 



scene that reminds one of some 
Middle English ballad, a vast floral 
coverlet gets underway at Garsington, 
embroidered by the chatelaine, by 
Juliette, and by Maria, the refugee 
from Belgium .taken in by Lady 
Ottoline, whose flowers are red and 
sensual. They stitch while Bertrand

penniless, un-English, ignorant, and 
very young. 

As the study of a marriage that 
started as it meant to go on, this 
makes most fascinating reading. Even 
before the wedding Juliette became 
aware that Julian's ‘♦lovable but 
complex character” did not include a 
high degree of understanding of 
others. . She hopefully bought him 
Sahatogen, but Julian’s waywardness 
was for beyond Sanatogen. 

e spent much of Bis honey- 
moon by Freniham Pond 
in Surrey, ensconsed in a 
very small bird watcher's 
canvas hide, with no space for a 
-companion, watching the Greater 
Crested Grebes, his speciality, at their 
rituals of courtship and display. 

There are some very tare, unlikely 
creatures in litis book. Axolotls, 
.eccentric tailed amphibians from 
Mexico, which Julian experimentally 
injected with thyroid gland, a story 
that the Daily Mail made much ot 
But none quite so peculiar as Huxley 
was himself, so wonderful with 
animals, impossible with, humans, 
whose “curious habit** (as his wife a 
little om-generously describes it) of 
compulsively contradicting her in 
public caused her some distress. 

It was terribly hard work being 
married to a Huxley. “If I were not a 
man”, said Julian frenetically, “I 
think I should like to be a tug-boat" 
Manic vision. Juliette was acquies- 
cent, and her kindness made bis 
-Messianic transports all the more 
-preposterous. She had a certain 
'practical resilience and doggedness, 
the legacy perhaps of her Swiss 
grandfather, inventor of the first 
washing machine, the couleuse. But 
when Julian went abroad, and left her 
with the job of calling in at dead of 



night to the laboratory at the Oxford 
Old Museum lo separate the mating 
frogs in mid-activity,- so that the tegs 
should be preserved unfertilized tor 
his experiments, rite felt a certain 
panic. And sorry for the frogs. 

She was always beset, through this 
problematic marriage; by advice from 
Huxley's friends, by man-ofgenius 
solidarity. Wasn’t Julian, after all, a 
star performer of The Brains Trust? 
The progressive woman doctor she 
consulted gave advice more to the 
point: “Take a lover and I will give 
you the contraceptive." This was 
Hampstead in the Thirties. It was not 
a bad idea. 

Escapes. Excursions. The joys of 
ethnographic expeditions, to Africa, 


to India, Java, Bali, Thailand, Persia: 
explorations of whole civilizations, 
beside which North London house- 
hold agonies diminished. Julian was 
one of that odd species of Englishmen 
who improved in torrid climates. 
And even nearer home, the Huxley's 
day-to-day existence had an exoti- 
cism that to some extent made up for 
all the incompatibilities. 

' This is an absorbingly interesting 
book about the mysteries of marriage* 
and also about the no less secret 
bonds of brothers. The enigmatic 
Aldous. whom Juliette first saw 
arriving at Garsington from Oxford 
on a bicycle in 1915, comes and goes 
in her life's story, finally departing to 
America by aeroplane, remote and 
rather ghostly, in 1963.

that if yon can write brilliant

Out of Africa 
something true 


Coming To Birth is modern 
Kenya's response to Out of. 
Africa. The irrelevance of 
Karen Blixen's nostalgic 
recreation of form life there 60 
years ago is made dear in 
Marjorie Macgoye's novel 
about a village girL coming to 
Nairobi to marry and live 
through die Emergency of the 
late Fifties, and the ^flowing 
decades of independence. Life 
for the poor in nr bon Kenya is 
cramped, brutal, squalid, gre- 
garious, and spare. Yet the 
heroine of Coming To Birth 
survives privation and beat- 
ings from her husband, also 
the loss of her child to a stray 
bailee, before emerging strong 
and conscious of herself, ready 
to bear a child again. Her story 
is a paradigm of an African 
nation developing into recogni- 
tion of its problems witbont 
finding a solution to them. 
Although Marjorie Macgoye 
is a poet, her language never 
overwhelms the perceptions of 
her heroine. She has written a 
relevant, bleak, and tUuminat- 
ing book that is a worthy 
winner in the Sinclair Prize for 
fiction. 

In Minka, Richard Collins 
shows his extraordinary 
knowledge of the Russian 
world of ballet. He was a 
member of the Bolshoi Com- 
pany for many years. This 
experience has been injected 
into a plot of suspense, love, 
intrigne, and defection. Collins 
tells a story as well as he 
dances a pas de deux, and 
Minka sboakl have the suc- 
cess of tiie early Deighton 
thrillers, or even of le Carrf. 
Yet the author's ambition is 
greater his ability. His 
prose trips over its metaphors, 
his dialogue is winded by its 
banalities. Rough peasants 
may have laces like ploughed 
fields; pools may be of stunned 
and glistening stillness; but we 
do not want to hear it, any 
move than godfike pronounce- 
ments such as, “Making - 
friends is less complex than 
making love.” A good editor

catches fire. No one is healed. 

The author Richard Barns 
is himself a young poet. Unfor- 
tunately, he includes in his 
first novel a dozen examples of 
his hero's Georgian poetry to 
prove genins as well as to 
reveal a mental state. The 
verses, however, are a pas- 
tiche, and expose Goodcfaild as 
not skilled enough at bis craft. 
Yet Borns has a sensuous and 
reflective style of writing, with 
descriptions of cou nt ryside 
and schools and trench war- 
fare that show him to be a 
mature and trenchant writer. 
His homework in history is 
impeccable, except on the age 
of the Captain of Chamber at 
College at Eton. I know. I 
happened to be one. 

Pathfinders is about the 
Second World War, ami the 
crew of one of the Wellington 
bombers that led the raids over 
Germany. As with all the 
novelists this week, Cecil Lew- 
is thoroughly knew his sub- 
ject. Never have those few 
been better pot into context 
and fuselage, as they prepared 
to “fly np and down the valley 
of the shadow of death, till one 
by one we fen into it" 

In this revised edition of 
Pathfinders, first published in 
1943, the revision has not gone 
far enough. The weakness of 
the novel lies in the extended 
flashbacks abont the lives of 
the members of the crew as 
they fly towards their deaths 
on their mission. Thornton 
Wilder has a lot to answer for. 
His characters may have died 
at the bridge of St Lois Rey, 
bat his teenhiques lived- on to 
other novels. Bat Pathfinders 
will fly a reader back to a time 
of courage, emotion, and re- 
straint, It must be read by 
those who have not read it 
before and wish to know why 
Britain kept on going through 
its darkest hour.

THE TIMES THURSDAY JUNE 12 1986. 



Keep the defence options open 


THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Clean-up 
campaign 

We could soon have not only Mrs 
Thatcher and Richard Branson 
demanding we keep Britain tidy, 
but Ronald McDonald as well. 
Bob Rhea, the chairman of 
McDonald's Hamburgers, which 
has already announced a “sub- 
stantial" sponsorship of the Civic 
Trust Awards, tells me the com- 
pany will give financial backing to 
the Government's £25 million 
scheme to rehabilitate derelict 
areas, if satisfied about its 
organization. The irony of Mc- 
Donald’s current obsession with 
urban tidiness is lost on Rhea. 
When 1 asked about the burger 
canons that land in their thou- 
sands on front gardens every 
evening, he told me: "We just 
make the things. Pm a Christian. 
Ultimately, I blame God.” 

Moral theology 

Education Secretary Kenneth 
Baker, so anxious to link sex with 
morals in the classroom, might be 
well advised to take a red pencil to 
religious studies. In particular, to 
page 19 of the Oxford and Cam- 
bridge Examination Board s new 
GCSE Religious Studies syllabus. 
As part of their coursework. 
candidates are required to submit 
essays on "personal experiences”. 
Suggested topics for the 16-year- 
olds of the late 1980s include 
homosexuality, heterosexuality, 
fornication, ‘abortion, birth con- 
trol. polygamy and communes. 
Nothing about the value of family 
life. I fear. 

Model T 

Disgraceful. Citroen has been 
advertising one of its flashier 
models, the Leader BX. with a 
picture of Mrs Thatcher and the 
headline: "Not all leaders are after 
vour money”. Apart from any- 
thing else the whole point about 
Mrs T - ask any wet - is that she 
wants to tax less, not more, of our 
money. Now the Advertising 
Standards Authority has upheld 
three complaints about the misuse 
of a British prime minister by 
French advertisers. “Distasteful.” 
says the ASA. and Citroen has 
promised not to do it again. 

Living on 

The botanical and ornithological 
diaries of anti-Sizewell cam- 
paigner Hilda Murrell, whose 
murder two years ago Tam Dalyell 
linked to the secret services, are to 
be published next spring. The 
Shropshire branch of the Council 
for the Preservation of Rural 
England, of which she was a 
founding member, has edited 
them and they are now with 
Collins. One recipient of royalties 
will be her nephew, Rob Green, 
whose work as a naval intelligence 
officer during the Falklands war 
could, according to Dalyell. have 
provided a possible link with her 
murder. 

• A postscript to my biographies 
competition: a reader, slightly 
misreading the original rubric, 
suggests Going for a Gong — by 
Bob Geldof. 


In the United States it is possible 
lo oppose the MX missile without 
being thought soft on the Soviets. 
Germans can discuss the feasibil- 
ity of territorial defence without 
being accused of irresponsibility. 
Only in Britain are we stuck with 
irreconcilable altitudes to defence 
based on dogma. 

The joint commission on de- 
fence and disarmament appointed 
by David Steel and David Owen 
tried to break down these atti- 
tudes — and our report is a good 
one. It develops the themes of 
collective security and common 
security. The first means the 
proper defence of Britain within 
Nato: the second, the continuing 
search for lasting peace based on 
measures for ending confrontation 
and reducing conflict. These are 
con v i ncing pol icies. 

Thev also have much electoral 
appeal The great majority of 
people recognize that in a nuclear- 
armed world, Britain should play 
its full part within a nuclear- 
armed alliance. But they believe 
that the arms race must be halted 
and are profoundly worried by the 
stvle of leadership being given to 
the West by President Reagan. 

The report examines two as- 
pects of defence that often produce 
dogmatic or absolutist responses: 
costs and charging 


by William Rodgers 


approach to the nuclear question 
is not unilateralist- Apart from 
membership of a nuclear-armed 
Nato. Britain will continue to 
operate aircraft equipped with 
free-fall nuclear bombs. But un- 
less we say that Britain must have 
its own strategic nuclear missiles 
whatever the cost and penally — 
that the sky's the limit — then 
there must be a rational approach 
to what we can afford. 

The issue that has produced 
such excitement is this: when the 
Polaris missile system comes to 
the end of its life in the late 1 990s, 
should it be repjaced? This is not a 
question of principle and ought 
not to be a test of political virility. 
It is a matter of cost and 
opportunity — set against the 
changing international scene. The 
commission says that Tndenl 
should be cancelled as being too 
expensive and involving massive 
overkill. The government is whis- 
tling in the wind if it seriously 
believes that Britain can afford 
Trident now that the defence 
budget is reducing. The British 
Army of the Rhine, our maritime 
contribution to Nato and the air 
defence of Britain will suffer. 


Bui the decision on whether — 
and, if so. how — to replace Po- 
laris should be taken only in the 
light of a thorough and up-to-date 
review, both of alternatives and 
the international situation. Arms 
control negotiations are at a 
critical stage after years of inertia. 
Recent events have once again 
raised doubts about the long-term 
commitment of the United States 
to Europe; the idea of strengthen- 
ing the European pillar in Nato is 
being actively canvassed. It is 
surely sensible to postpone a final 
decision on Polaris replacement 
while these matters remain in the 
balance. This is not a fudge. There 
is no deceit or humbug in admit- 
ting an open mind until a review 
has been completed. 

The real fudge is to say un- 
equivocally that Trident should be 
cancelled but that Britain should 
remain a nuclear weapons state. 
The lacuna is obvious: how? Tne 
idea of submarine-launched enure 
missiles has its supporters. But it 
was rejected by Labour ministers 
in 1978 and then by a Conser- 
vative government Most defence 
experts are sceptical. 

If Trident is cancelled in two 


years' time, some £2.5 billion to 
£3 billion will have been spent of 
the £10 billion budgeted. It is far 
from clear that the remaining sum 
would enable additional suiv 
marines to be built new Bn tig 
warheads for cruise missiles to be 
developed and new missiles ac- 
quired, perhaps with French 
participation, ail at significantly 
less that the cost of TridenL If the

ridiculous to put in its place an

But this itself is a question that 
only the government of the day. 
with access lo all the classified 
information, can deride. It is 
another reason why “whether, and 
if so. how” is logically consistent 
Indeed, logic might point to less 
dogmatism about whether T rident 
should be cancelled until the 
review of international relations 
and of options is complete. 

Certainty is not always a virtue. 
Nor is conviction itself evidence 
of truth. The commission's report 
is not an exercise in evasion and 
compromise. It sets out a credible 
policy that both Social Democrats 
and Liberals should support.

Fire alarm 

Hammersmith and Fulham's new 
Labour council is threatening to 
evict the Tory minority from its 
office in the town hall. The row 
arose after Labour filed its 
nominal ion fora seat on London's 
new fire authority too late. As a 
result Conservative councillor 
Fiona McGregor has found herself 
invited to the authority's AGM 
tomorrow where, in what is likely 
to be a close vote, a new chairman 
will be elected. Fulham's Labour 
leader. Gordon Prentice, thinks 
she should resign and has threat- 
ened to make her life difficult if 
she does noL This has merely 
strengthened her determination to 
attend. If she docs, the nine Tory 
councillors have been warned to 
expect the eviction notice in the

Early Gatting 

Teachers ai Mike Gatting's old 
school — the John Kelly Boys 
High School in the heart of 
Neasdcn. just off London's North 
Circular — arc not surprised by 
his appointment as England's 
cricket captain. Being a big iad and 
a "natural” he played for the staff 
team at the tender age of 1 3- "He 
took to it like a duck to water,” 
say’s headmaster Tony Mooney. 
“He was a perfect pupil, went out 
of his way to coach youngsters and 
had leadership qualities." But he 
wasn't all goody-goody. One 
teacher remembers Gatting refus-

the ball, didn't see the flukish run-

Soviet reporting of the accident at 
Chernobyl nuclear reactor No 4 
has been widely criticized in the 
West for being out of date, over- 
optimistic and on occasion simply 
incorrect. Most of the criticism 
was justified, particularly immedi- 
ately after the disaster. But now. 
six weeks later, the Soviet Union 
would have grounds for complain- 
ing that at least some of its words 
are not being heard. 

For in retrospect Chernobyl 
may emerge as a decisive compo- 
nent in the media revolution for 
which the Soviet Union has been 
wailing, Chernobyl dominates the 
Soviet media in a way that no 
domestic bad news has done 
before. A home-grown Soviet 
disaster is being recognized as 
such and reported prominently 
and in detail on S oviet radio, 
television and in the Press. 

A close -but by no means 
gnomic — study of Soviet reports 
concerning Chernobyl over the 
past four weeks affords a wide- 
ranging - if incomplete or dis- 
torted - picture of the scale or the 
disaster, in human, scientific and 
economic terms. Moreover, many 
reports have been presented with a 
clarity and absence of ideological 
certainty unusual in the Soviet 
media. Three years ago, the then 
Soviet leader Yurt Andropov 
turned heads with his blunt state- 
ment about his country’s eco- 
nomic problems; "We have no 
ready solutions”. Now, a measure 
of this undogmatic approach is 
being applied to the Chernobyl 
disaster. 

Soviet television has shown 
pictures of what it calls the 
“stricken” reactor, the surround- 
ing landscape, and the emptied 
towns echoing with silence. There 
have been broadcast interviews 
not only with the heroes of the 
reactor fire and its aftermath, but 
also with evacuees — some of 
whom were unhappy about their 
treatment The cameras have gone 
into hospitals and shown ban- 
daged survivors of the fire, bald 
from the effects of radiation. Their 
words, of course, have been 
hopeful; the pictures have told a 
different story. 

Alongside tales of heroism, 
Soviet journalists have turned up 
instances of failed rescue at- 
tempts. of responsibilities ne- 
glected, of cowardice. There are 
still, it is reported, more than 400 
Communist Party members (the 
standard-bearers of courage and 
selflessness in the Soviet canpn) 
unaccounted for. They are miss- 
ing, it is made clear, not because 
they perished at any stage of the 
emergency, but because they fled 
rather than take part in dangerous 
rescue work. Young people aban-

reporting of Chernobyl may mark 
a significant change in media policy

for truth 


doned elderly relatives; local of- 
ficials were not at their posts or 
incompetent to deal with the 
tasks. In places there was panic. 

Some of the most anguished 
accounts in the Soviet media 
relate to the evacuation. The 
formal organization of Soviet 
society — the documentation re- 
quired, the restrictions on move- 
ment and rigid central planning — 
probably made the operation eas- 
ier than it might have been in a 
Western country. But it was still 
difficult Some collective farm 
workers resisted the order to 
move. Many insisted they would 
not go without their livestock. 
Eventually trailers were provided 
for the farm animals, but dogs and 
cats were left behind. 

The evacuees were taken to 
villages and collective farms said 
to be outside the danger zone and 
billeted on the local population. 
There were tensions. People were 
living four and more to a room in 
a tiny flat More than one woman 
in the kitchen, one Soviet report 
said, spells trouble. The arrival of 
so many extra people all at once 
placed additional strain on the 
already stretched supply system. 
People needed clothes. they 
needed food, they needed money. 
Often it simply was not there. 

Some of the children were sent 
to the as-yet empty summer youth 
camps. Others found themselves 
studying on a shift system in 
overcrowded local schools. Thou- 
sands of adults, uprooted indefi- 
nitely, had to be reassured: in the 
Soviet Union, no work means no 
pay. For most there was a 
"disturbance” allowance equiva- 
lent to the average monthly sal- 
ary — when it came through. 

There have been stories of 
families separated and unable to 


trace each other. There have been 
promises - hard to fulfil at the 
best of limes - that all letters sent 
to the evacuation zone would be 
forwarded. And inevitably there 
have been people who tried des- 
perately lo return to their homes. 

Most were turned back; some 
penetrated the layers of security, 
to be detained and returned 
whence they had come with a 
militia escort. Such details are not 
part of regular Soviet reportage. 

Soviet reporting on Chernobyl 
has still left far too much unsaid. 
The truth about the number of 
people evacuated, how long it took 
and the extent of the contamina- 
tion has not yet emerged. Some 
questions, like the long-term ef- 
fects of radiation on people’s 
health and the prognosis for 
agriculture in the affected areas, 
cannot yet be answered, but thgr 
are not even being posed. There is 
also confusion — almost welcome 
in a country where official cer- 
tainty is the norm — about how 
long the danger zone will remain 
dangerous. Some say six months; 
others hint that it may be a 
lifetime. Even such pessimism 
comes courtesy of the habitually 
optimistic Soviet media. 

But why is it that the breaking of 
so many Soviet media taboos, as 
well as the wealth of generally 
unembellished detail about the 
Chernobyl accident, is being dis- 
regarded abroad? Partly it is 
because the information now 
emanating from official Soviet 
sources is still less — in terms of 
prominence and accuracy “than 
would be expected, indeed de- 
manded, in the West. But we are 
used to information; Soviet view- 
ers and readers are not 
For the most part, however, the 
Soviet authorities have only them- 
selves to blame for the poor press 


their coverage of Chernobyl has 
received abroad. Real changes in 
attitude have been obscured by 
many of the characteristic 
deficiences of the Soviet media. 
Once the initial silence ended, 
Chernobyl was treated as a cam- 
paign or a war, and depicted in 
epic terms, ft was made into a 
myth. The heroes — the firemen 
whose boots stuck in the melting 
tar around the reactor; the en- 
gineers who tunnelled their way to 
the reactor to adjust the vital 
valve; the pilots who flew the 
helicopters to plug the reactor with 
concrete and sand as the in- 
dicators on their Geiger counters 
went way beyond the maximum — 
were portrayed with all the 
commonplaces familiar from 
early Soviet novels. The hyperbole 
distracted attention from the 
growing number of less-confident 
reports. . _ . 

Soviet accounts have also been 
devalued by inaccuracies and 
dissembled facts. There was do 
panic, the early reports said 
categorically, only to be contra- 
dicted by subsequent, quieter 
reports. Only two dead, the first 
official statements said, to be 
confounded as the death-toll in- 
evitably rose. And very eariy on, 
the figure for “normal” back- 
ground radiation in the Chernobyl 
and Kiev area was significantly 
raised to a “crisis norm”, meaning 
that all “normal” radiation levels 
given subsequently had to be 
adjusted upwards several times. 

Above all, the Western view of 
Soviet reporting about Chernobyl 
was coloured by Moscow’s tardi- 
ness in admitting the accident in 
the first place. This error was then 
compounded by often gratuitous 
attacks on the Western media for 
“sensationalist" reports and lack 
of compassion. These attacks 
served only to perpetuate stereo- 
types on both sides. 

Chernobyl has fostered change 
in the Soviet media, and some 
longstanding taboos — on report- 
ing bad news, on depicting human 
misery and on making less than 
optimistic forecasts — have been 
broken. Many, though, are still in 
place —too many even for some 
members of the Soviet journalistic 
establishment 

The question is whether the 
greater openness applied to 
Chernobyl will be extended in 
time to other topics; or is it an 
exceptional response to an excep- 
tional situation? Unfortunately, 
unless the changes that have been 
made are recognized for what they 
are, outside as well as inside the 
Soviet Union, there is a risk that 
after Chernobyl Soviet journalism 
will become again its traditional 
hidebound self 


policy that • ~ — 

another nuclear weapon unlMS 

(which is unlikely) the US and ihe 
USSR agree such massive 
weapon reductions that it seems 
right for Britain to negotiate to 
give up nuclear weapons. Liberal 
policy, at least as defined by David 
Steel, is that Polans should not be 
replaced unless future circum- 
stances, at present unknowable, 
require it. Wait and see is Steel s 
formula for bridging the gap 
between Liberal and SDP policy. 

It is also virtually the com- 
promise position of the commis- 
sion appointed by the two Alliance 
leaders to advise on defence 
policy, and it was to defuse the 
undermining effect of this on SDP 
policy that Owen launched his 
pre-emptive strike against com- 
promise before yesterday s 
publication of the report. . 

As a result he is plunged into 
argument with William Rodgers 
ami Shirley Williams. Both have 
publicly disagreed with their lead- 
er who, they say, speaks for 
himself and who they hope will 
modify his position. Roy Jenkins, 
the former SDP leader, is also 
understood to disagree with 
Owen, though he has not yet said 
so publicly. So three-quarters or 
the original ex-Labour founding 
fethere of the SDP risk the 
consequences of disunity to get 
their leader to change his ap- 
proach. Why? 

There is, after all nothing 
unilateralist in the old sense about 
any of them. They all fought tt in 
the Labour Party, and defence was 
one of the issues which stiffened 
their resolve to leave the Labour 
Party, even though the primary 
cause was the extremists’ attack on 
democracy through the party’s 
organization. 

What bothers all of them is not 
what Owen thinks about post- 
Polaris policy but that he should 
say what he thinks prematurely, 
disrupting relations with the Lib- 
erals. But why make it worse by 
voicing their own disagreement 
with Owen? Why, assuming they 
share his basic position on de- 
fence, and have no sympathy with 
Liberal quasi-unilateralism, 
should they hanker after a com- 
promise policy now - particularly 
remembering their disillusion 
with the fudging that drove them 
out of the Labour Party and 
reduced Labour to the condition 
in which Neil Kinnock has to 
endorse Pat Wall as a candidate? 

Owen (who unlike Steel has no 
unilateralists to speak of in his 
own party) does not only fear that 
the Alliance in government would 
be haunted by unilateralism from 
the Liberal backbenches. He also 
faces Liberal and some SDP 


defence, it would be "pretty close 
to it” The two Alliance parties 
cannot go to the country with 
different policies. If they dii what 
should an Alliance voter who 
believed in the SDP defence pohey 
do when asked to vote for a 
Liberal candidate? And vice 
versa 9 It is t° avoid this dilemma 
that Steel Williams and their 
friends adopt the fine which Owen 

calls fudging. . . 

The best answer would be a 
genuinely common policy. A cur- 
rent fashion among some of 
Owen’s critics is to ffjk vaguely as 
if this could be found by develop- 
ing a collective European defe^c^ 
There is much to be said for doing 
so. Bui it represents no answer to 
what should happen P 0 ^ oI *£?* 
Putting the decision off, wth 
particularly reference to the 
unknowable factor of future costs, 
therefore seems an alternative. 
But nobody would be deceived; 
the gap between the two Alliance 
partners in basic attitude wou d 
remain, and the Tones would 
exploit it in an election. 

But there is another motive 
behind the opposition. Liberal or 

SDP, to Owen. Many of his cnucs 
tend towards “mergensm”, seeing 
the ultimate destiny of thetwo 

parties as one party. The Liberals, 
who had the grassroots organiza- 
tion but needed the SDP so as to 
become more than a vehicle for 
protest always wanted merger; so 
did the Jenkinsites. Initially, the 
SDP might have gone its own way. 
but its leaders decided otherwise, 
and got the worst of both worlds. 

From the start the Alliance 
should either have been a single 
party, or two clearly distinct 
parties competing together but 
making short-term limited elec- 
toral pacts. As it is, it faces the 
danger of growing division be- 
tween the parties and within them, 
because of fundamental dif- 
ferences and the artifices used to 
disguise them. . . 

Owen is fighting to maintain the 
separate SDP identity for the long 
run. The more he succeeds, the 
more fragile Alliance unity wiU 
seem. The more unity is preserved 
by compromise, the less convinc- 
ing policies will seem. It might all 
be much easier if Owen were not 
there, but he is his party’s biggest 
electoral asset. He is under stress 
in his own party as we shall see at 
its conference this autumn, and 
before that at the joint candidates’ 
rally on July 26. The Social 
Democrats are paying heavily for 
the tortuous path of separation 
with unity on which their found- 
ing fathers ili-advisedly set oul

Can Haughey regain the heights? 


Dublin 

For the second time in five years 
Garret FitzGerald finds himself 
heading a minority administration 
following the resignation two days 
ago of a backbencher from his 
coalition’s junior partner. It could 
hardly have come at a worse ume. 
The outcome of a referendum to 
remove the constitutional ban on 
divorce is in doubt, and the 
rehabilitation of Charles Haughey. 

whom his followers like to call the 
"real Taoiseach", has been gaining 
momenium. 

In recent months the Haughey 
publicity-go- round has included 
lavish coverage of the 60tn 
anniversary of the founding of his 
party, Fianna FaiL the opening of 
the unlikely Knock international 
airport (first backed by Haughey 
when prime minister) and Charles 
Haughty's Ireland . a Channel 4 
documentary said by envious 
opponents lo have “taken him 
into” every one of the country's 4 1 
constituencies. In case the faithful 
missed this flattering portrayal, 
video copies were on sale at 
Fianna Fail's recent conference. 

A general election must be held 


before November next year and 
opinion polls indicate Haughey 
capable of an overall majority — 
something that has eluded him in 
the past three rounds with 
FitzGerald's Fine Gael. 

From electoral defeat in the 
winter of 1982. through a phone- 
tapping scandal and then an 
attempted coup in which 33 back- 
benchers opposed him as leader. 
Haughey's fortunes have gradually 
recovered. By January 1985 polls 

showed 52 per cent of the elec- 
torate behind him. His mis- 
judgement of reaction to the 
Anglo-Irish agreement and the 
challenge of a newly-formed party 
led by his. old foe. Desmond 
O'Malley, reduced Fianna Fail’s 
support to 42 per cent. It has now 
recovered to 48 per cent, and he 
has also regained his personal lead 
over FitzGerald. at 46 per cent 
against 44. 

Satisfaction with FitzGerald's 
coalition government has never 
risen above 35 per cent in the 
opinion polls. In February it was 
at its lowest, 23 per cent, two 
points behind the O’Malley's new 
SDP-style Progressive Democrats, 
launched in December. Indeed the 


polls suggest that the fortunes of 
the coalition government (Fine 
Gael plus Labour) have passed the 
point of no return, after three-and- 
a-half years of economic hardship. 
The government has slowed the 
slide towards bankruptcy, and 
inflation is down from 17 per cent 
to 4.6: but taxes remain punitive, 
unemployment has risen from 
168.000 io 232.256. and borrow- 
ing remains high. 

A modest liberalization of fam- 
ily-planning law has been followed 
by a clash with the Roman 
Catholic Church over divorce. 
And what FitzGerald sees as his 
major achievement, the Anglo- 
Irish agreement, has yet to deliver 
reforms north of the border, where 
they matter. 

The Progressive Democrats - 
known as Progos — still look sus- 
piciously like a “Stop Charlie' 
party. Thanks to proportional 
representation, they could win 
enough scats to rob Haughey of an 
overall majority and provide Fitz- 
Gerald with another coalition 
partner. Their blend of right-wing 
economics and liberal social poli- 
cies, and an approach lo the north 
much closer to FitzGerald's than 


Haughey's. make them a natural 
ally of Fine Gael. 

FitzGerald is determined to 
complete a full term, hoping an 
economic upturn will bring him 
electoral dividends. Bui above all 
he wants to ensure that the Anglo- 
Irish agreement takes firm tool 
He hopes his co-signatory at No 1 0 
does not make an early dash to the 
polls. He said: “To put at risk 
whatever has been achieved for 
political ends would be absolutely 
unforgivable.” 

What if the tide continues to 
turn in favour of Fianna Fail? 
British officials remain relaxed 
about the prospect of Haughey 
returning to power. Since 1982 
there have been occasional 
mutterings that security co-opera- 
tion was better under him. And. 
although he strongly criticized the 
agreement for “giving everything 
away", he has been careful not to 
commit himself about the future. 
Unless the situation in the north 
deteriorates drastically this sum- 
mer, Haughey will find it difficult 
to repudiate the agreement if it 
still has the support of the SDLP. 
the north’s main nationalist party.

This week. 320 years after the 
Great Fire of London, the 
Worshipful Company of Bakers 
has finally officially apologized for 
the fact that it was started by a 
baker. Like most apologies from 
British industry, it has come a 
little too late to be of comfort to 
those involved, nor was there any 
offer of compensation for any 
damage that may have been done 
by the fire. 

Still, let bygones by bygones, say 
I. and so does the Worshipful 
Company of Customers — per- 
haps we might now expect a hint 
from the bakers that they are sorry 
about the pale, wrapped bundles 
of cotton wool that go on sale 
under the name of bread. 

In fact, the Worshipful Com- 
pany of Customers has gone to the 
trouble of phoning around a few of 
the other companies to find out if 
there was anything they too 
wanted to apologize for, and the 
response has been most encourag- 
ing. Customers' Hall has kindly 
allowed me to reprint some of 
these messages. 

From the Worshiped Society af 
Cash Register Operators: “We beg 
to offer our apologies for the fact 
that the ink used in our tills is so 
faint that when you come to 
examine the receipt you can make 
out neither the name of the shop, 
nor the date, nor the amount only 
the words: “Thank You. Please 
Call Again'.” 

From the A ncient Society of Public 
Advertisers: “We would like to 
make our regret known for the 
advertising fraternity’s obsession 
for punning, so that more and. 
more advertisements are becom- 
ing more and more incomprehen- 
sible. to the extent that one can see 
taxi cabs in London with the word 
“Genius’ written on the side, and 
one is expected to go out and buy 
Irish stout on the strength of it.” 
From the Honourable Company of 
Milk Canon Manufacturers: “We 
are deeply sorry that when you 
carry out the instructions to push 
the wings together to form a spout, 
everything collapses and you have 
to get a knife to make an opening.” 
From the Honourable Society of 
Siicky-Tqpe Makers: "We are fully 
conscious of the fact that it is next 
to impossible to see where the end 
of the tape is on the roll, that it is 


equally hard to get it started with 
your fingernail and that when you 
do, it usually splits as you unroll it. 
Sorry about that” 

From the Venerable Guild of 
Inserters of Stray Publicity Ma- 
terial Inside Magazines. Which 
Fail Out at the Most Awkward 
Moments: “Sorry about 
everything.” 

From the Ancient Company of 
Secretaries: “Sony, he’s in a 
meeting at the moment.” 

From the Worshipful Company of 
Door Handle Installers: “We 
would like to express our regret for 
the way we put door handles at 
such a height that they are always 
gening jammed in your pockets, 
belt-loops or sleeves as you pass 
by, bringing you to a sudden 
baffling stop.” 

From the Old Conglomerate of 
Bank Cashiers: “We are really 
very sorry that the position 
marked Quick Service Till in your 
bank always has the slowest 
service.” 

From the Honourable Company of 
Glossy Magazine Publishers: 
“Please accept our apologies for 
the way in which interesting 
articles are suddenly continued on 
page 1 37, and for the fact that no 
page after about 70 is numbered; 
also for placing the contents list 
about half way through the 
magazine.” 

From the Worshipful Company of 
Breviers pf Lager with German- 
sounding Names: “Sorry it doesn't 
taste the same as it does in 
Germany.” 

From the Venerable Company of 
Personal Stereos: all you can hear 
is a perpetual tick-tikka-txkka-tick- 
tikka-tick-tikka . . . dribbling 
from his answering machine. 

From the Ancient Gang of Radio 
Four News Announcers: “We are 
sorry about the way we keep 
repeating the same bit of news 
over and over again. Today, the 
ruling council of Radio Four News 
Announcers apologized for the 
repetition of news items. For more 
news of that Radio Four news 
apology, here's our Apology

From the Venerable Company of 
Venerable Companies: “Glad we 
could make all these apologies to 
you. Sorry nothing will get done 
about any of them.”

FIGHTING DISCRIMINATION 


The Commission for Racial- 
Equality says it has evidence of 
discrimination against non- 
while soldiers. That evidence 
takes the form of anecdotes 
and complaints. It contains 
allegations of harrowing 
maltreatment and the failure 
of military authorities to pro- 
mote able black soldiers on 
merit. The Army is said to be 
unwilling to assign black sol- 
diers to the prestige Tegiments, 
notably those which undertake . 
ceremonial duties. 

Such charges are serious, 
and not only because discrim- 
ination is. unlawful. If they' 
have even a vestige of -truth! 
they prompt more general 
concerns. One is about how a 
professional military force 
should operate. Social distinc- 
tions certainly exist and are 
perhaps ineradicable in a 
hierarchical organization. But 
merit, including the ability to 
lead, should be the only cri- 
terion for promotion. Indeed, 
it is the only criterion that will 
produce an effective machine 
for war. Skin colour ought to 
be irrelevant 

Another consideration is 
lost opportunity. Successful 
black professionals are models 
of achievement to a group of 
British citizens who badly 
need such encouragement 
Successful black soldiers 
should be role models while in 
uniform; they are likely to 
provide a leavening in the 
black community upon their 
retirement Evidence from die 
United States points to the' 
great potential of a pro- 
fessional army for educating 
and integrating racial minor- 
ities. The army equips them 
for civilian life, not as an act of 
social service, but as part of the 


regular business of peacetime 
soldiering. 

The Commission's interest 
in these complaints is a legiti- 
mate one. But it has, h must be 
said, expressed Its interest in a 
rather odd way: it collaborated 
with a Sunday newspaper in an 
article which had the character 
of a general expose of the 
Armed Forces when the ev- 
idence referred to individual 


cases. 

This was unorthodox. But 
the Commission is reduced to 
anecdote because its powers of 
investigation are unclear. It 
cannot investigate general pat- 
terns of discrimination. It is 
restricted to following up in- 
dividual cases in narrow re- 
sponse to a specific chaige of 
discrimination. Last year it 
asked the Home Office to 
amend the Race Relations Act 
to clarify and extend its pow- 
ers. Those proposals have been 
left in limbo for the months 
since because the Government 
has been reluctant to tackle 
what Home Office ministers 
evidently think is a ticklish 
issue. 

They almost certainly fear 
that it would excite racial 
prejudice in the general public.. 
They may be impressed by 
classical liberal arguments 
against giving state bodies 
excessive powers of investiga- 
tion that could lead to 
harrassment of individuals 
and small firms. They may 
finally feel that some members 
of the Commission's staff lack 
the spirit of judicial impartial- 
ity that should inform such 
delicate investigation. 

In short. Ministers are un- 
sure both about race policy 
and indeed about the existence 
of the CRE itself. But while the 


GOULASH COMMUNISM STILL PLEASES 


A year ago a Soviet-Hungarian 
summit in Budapest would 
have been a meeting of the two 
success stories of the Eastern 
bloc: Hungary, the Woe's star 
economic performer, playing 
host to' Mikhail Gorbachov, 
the bloc's media star. When 
the meeting took place this 
week, however, the shine on 
both stars was looking a little - 
tarnished. 

While Mr Gorbachov's pub- 
lic image has suffered from his 
prevarication over a second 
superpower summit and the 
Chernobyl disaster, Hungary 
has for many months now 
been the subject of gloomier 
economic forecasts: its growth 
rates have been lower than 
hoped for; the rise in living 
costs has outstripped salaries. 
As a result, the Soviet-Hungar- 
ian summit saw less public 
celebration and mutual 
congratulation than it might 
have done at an earlier date. 

Hungarians generally have 
shown a curiously ambivalent 
attitude to the year-old Soviet 
leadership. On the one hand, 
there was optimism — reflected 
even this week in official 
Hungarian comment on the 
Soviet leader’s visit — that a 
younger, more dynamic leader 
in the Kremlin would, at best, 
generate welcome change 
throughout the bloc along the 
decentralizing, market-ori- 
entated lines favoured by 
Hungary. At worst, Hungarian 
optimism extended to the 


hope that Moscow would ap- 
prove the economic course 
Hungary had chosen, even if it 
was not to be the model for the 
rest of the bloc.. 

But there was also trepida- 
tion in Hungary about the 
implications of the Gorbachov 
leadership. The Soviet leader 
inaugurated his accession by 
calling all members of the 
Warsaw Pact together and 
stressing the need for absolute 
unity. To Hungarians this 
placed in doubt their contin- 
ued pursuit of links with 
Western Europe — links they 
had cultivated during the pe- 
riod of weak Soviet leadership 
before Gorbachov. It also 
threatened their minor eco- 
nomic miracle, for how was 
“absolute unity” to he inter- 
preted if not as a call for more 
ideological uniformity? 

Some of Hungary’s fears 
seemed to be borne out very 
early on, when Moscow sent 
Grigori Romanov, an ideo- 
logical hardline r out of favour 
with the Gorbachov leader- 
ship, to their Party Congress. 
Even Romanov's demise, 
when it came, was read two 
ways in Hungary. The fell of 
an ideological enemy was one 
thing , but was Hungary's sta- 
tus within the bloc so low as to 
warrant a visit by so dubious a 
member of the Soviet leader- 
ship? What sort of approval 
was that? 

Hungarians also read with 
concern the Soviet calls for 


better economic co-operation 
within the bloc* and the forms 
it was supposed to take. More 
joint ventures meant, to 
Hungarians, a greater flow of 
Hungarian wealth to the East. 
More socialist division of la- 
bour and a higher level of 
specialization within the bloc 
meant greater dependence on 
the other East bloc countries 
where standards were gen- 
erally lower. 

This week’s meetings in 
Budapest between Hungarian 
leaders and Mr Gorbachov 
may have put more alarmist 
Hungarian minds at rest. Mr 
Gorbachov likes success, and 
in Soviet terms, Hungary still 
looks successful If it contrives 
to remain so, it is likely to have 
a relatively fleer hand to 
manage its affairs than its less 
successful neighbours. The or- 
ders to change have not come 
-yet 

But the rather subdued na- 
ture of the Soviet leader’s visit 
and the relative complaisance 
of Soviet official statements 
suggest that many questions 
remain about Moscow’s atti- 
tude to its East bloc allies, and 
much mistrust. The policy 
signals from the Kremlin on 
Eastern Europe are still mixed. 
And much as Hungary has 
gained from the last few years 
of iaissez faire from Moscow, 
so it has much to lose — 
perhaps more than any other 
country in Eastern Europe — 
from decisive change. 


THE SPECTRE OF UNSOUND MONEY 


The present rate of monetary 
growth is unquestionably 
embarrassing to the Govern- 
ment. A bare three months 
from Budget day, the 
Chancellor’s target for broad 
money — the definition known 
as Sterling M3 — has been 
made to look ridiculous. This 
target was set generously wide, 
to allow for monetary growth 
at a pace we have not seen 
since 1981. But its upper limit 
wus 13 per cent, and Sterling 
M ? is presently growing at a 
rate of 1 9 ’A per cent. 


The embarrassment ‘is all 
the greater in that last year's 
target for Sterling M3 had to be 
abandoned halway through 
the financial year. In fixing a 
new one for 1 986-87, one must 
suppose the Chancellor - to 
have had some purpose. In an 
explanatory speech in April, he 
argued that Sterling M3 had 
the advantage of “familiarity”. 
It is a familiarity that seems to 
have bred contempt. 


This week’s excessively bad 
money figures may delay the 
interest-rate cuts on which the 
Chancellor has set his heart. 
Understanding this, the finan- 
cial markets marked sterling 
up. One cannot- however, 
pretend that the Sterling M3 
target acts as a real monetary 
discipline. The Cliancellor is 
making no.im media teatiempt 


to haul the figures back within 
range. 

A special report, published 
yesterday by the Treasury, lists 
excuses. Financial innovation 
makes the growth of broad 
money both rapid and un- 
predictable. High interest rates 
have increased people’s desire 
to hold money on deposit, 

. rather than acquire assets 
which do. not. feature in the 
monetary aggregates. Al- 
though these bank deposits are 
“liquid" — easily available to 
spend — they need not pose an 
inflationary threat if their 
holders view them more as a 
form of, savings 

There is an uncomfortable 
echo of the eariy 1970s in this 
increasing overhang of nom- 
inal spending power. Yet -the 
various markets in which one - 
would look for eariy wanting 
signals do not conform to a 
similar pattern of danger — at 
least not yeL Pay hasxertainly 
been growing at an infla- 
tionary pace, but it has not- 
been accelerating. Housing 
prices have risen rapidly in' 
London, but nationwide there 
are no signs ofa s^ventics-style : 
explosion. The stockmarkei 
has evinced its own peculiar, 
merger-mad form of overheat- 
ing. but there has been some 
recent correction. Arid, in 
marked contrast to the eariy . 

1 970s. commodity prices have 


been dramatically weak. 

But this cardhouse of judge- 
ment needs to be underpinned 
by monetary rules. The Chan? 
cellor has failed to provide 
them. He now favours a 
narrow measure of money, as a 
useful eariy indicator of the 
rate at which nominal national 
income is growing. Yet this 
relationship; too, is a matter of 
judgement; experience with 
Sterling M3 should warn 
against picking yet another set 
of targets that can then be 
abandoned with equal insou- 
ciance. 

Mr Nigel Lawson has, of 
course, been circumscribed by 
his prime minister's refusal to 
accept the discipline of ex- 
change-rate management in 
the European Monetary Sys- 
tem. On Tuesday, Mrs 
Thatcher made plain her rea- 
sons for staying ouL She 
wishes to leave open the 
option of “taking the strain” of 
financial pressures on the ex- 
change rate, particularly dur- 
ing the run-up to the election. 
That means allowing the 
pound to fell rather than 
swallow the bitter medicine of 
higher interest rates. This is 
not an option Mrs Thatcher 
could afford at a time of rapid 
monetary growth. Never has 
the Prime Minister sounded 
less like the advocate of sound 


LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


Indignation at school closures 


CRE exists and feels its powers 
to be unsatisfactory, it will be 
tempied to shoot from the hip. 
Making more powers available 
to the CRE would be one 
answer — but that should be 
contingent upon the 
Commission’s ceasing to re- 
gard its role as that of a 
prosecuting attorney. 

Meanwhile, the state sector 
is in least need of protection 
against official harrassment by 
bodies like the CRE. Yet, 
paradoxically, the legal capac- 
ity of the CRE to investigate 
another branch of government 
is at present most uncertain. 
What is wanted, first, is factual 
evidence about patterns of 
recruitment. The Civil Service 
has accepted this. It has in 
train a series of regional sur- 
veys which will, eventually, 
provide a picture of recruit- 
ment and promotion within 
Whitehall and the outlying 
departments of government 
The stated purpose is not to 
impose quotas or statistical 
parities — and, if necessary, 
there should be reassurance on 
this point — but to make 
certain that the State as a 
major employer knows whom 
it employs. It should regret any 
failure to recruit able West 
Indians or Asians as clerks or 
administrators, or police offi- 
cers or soldiers then to train 
and promote them on their 
merits. 

There is therefore a good 
case for the Ministry of De- 
fence itself to undertake at the 
least a statistical survey of the 
ethnic origin of military 
personnel, in parallel with the 
Civil Service at large. Angry 
denials that racial discrimina- 
tion exists within the Armed 
Forces are really not enough.

I 


From the Reverend Paul A 'ico/son 
Sir. During May the House of 
Lords discussed, without a di- 
vision. amendments to the Educa- 
tion Bill to regulate and to open up 
the procedures through which the 
local education authority presents 
proposals to dose schools to the 
Department of Education and 
Science. The DES considers them; 
the Secretary of State decides to 
accept or to reject them and to 
require him to announce the 
reasons for his decisions. 

Governors and parents who 
object to the closure of their 
schools are at a disadvantage if 
they do not have sight of the 
LEA'S case as it is presented to the 
DES and do not know which 
documents, what questions and 
replies and what response to their 
objections are passing between the 
two. 

In the Lords' debate the 
Government's answers to the 
amendments focused on the Local 
Government (Access to Informa- 
tion) Act which is not relevant to 
the proceedings at the DES. It is 
only relevant to the LEAs' de- 
cisions. When it comes to consid- 
ering proposals to dose schools 
the DES has discretion to do what 
it likes. 

Assurances were given at that 
time that the Secretary of State 
refers to the objectors matters 
raised by an LEA about which the 
objectors have not bom consulted, 
and that he encourages the LEAs 
to send to the objectors a copy of 
an LEA's response to their objec- 
tions. It would be better if these 
assurances became law, but no 
indication that the Government 
will do this was given in 
yesterday's Commons debate. . 

Five double-decker bus loads of 


High Wycombe school governors, 
parents and children recently lob- 
bied Parliament to express their 
indignation to Sir Keith Joseph, 
when he closed three local schools 
covering 1.500 children without 
giving a reason for rejecting their 
well argued cases. 

Yours faithfully.

Customs curbs 
on export trade 


A ‘Christmas tree’? 

From Mr Alan Haseihurst, MP for 
Saffron Walden (Conservative) 

Sir. When the amendment to the 
Education Bill to prohibit political 
indoctrination is schools was 
tabled for debate in the Lords your 
editorial (May 20) welcomed it as 
“A vote for education". You 
opined that “no-one who favours 
education could oppose the inten- 
tion behind the amendments”. 

How curious, inconsistent even, 
to find that under the heading “A 
hasty clause” your editorial today 
(June 4) claims that the Education 
Bill has now become a “Christmas 
tree festooned with irrelevant bits 
and pieces when the House of 
Lords introduced a hasty clause on 
sex education with scant concern 
for context or consequence". 

The irony is that the terms used 
by The Times to disparage the sex 
education clause, with which yon 
disagree, actually resemble those 
used by critics to disparage the 
political indoctrination clause, 
which you evidently support. 
Yours faithfully, 

ALAN HASELHURST,

The hippy convoy 


From Mrs Judith Verity 
Sir, I am most concerned at the 
one-sidedness of most of the 
media coverge of the progress of 
the“hippy caravan" in the New 
Forest and the degree of prejudice 
that this minute and relatively 
harmless proportion of the 
population appears to evoke. 

Vast amounts of extremely 
expensive police time is used in 
unseemly harassment of these 
travellers, apparently with the aim 
of rendering them totally depen- 
dent on the State for unemploy- 
ment benefit and probably very 
costly bed and breakfast accom- 
modation in one of our already 
overcrowded big city slums. 

Why can the Government not 
instead simply provide a series of 
sites throughout the country for 
their use? I know our island is 
small, but it must be possible to set 
aside some patches of land for the 
use of people who do not wish to 
“put down roots” This way of life 
used to be acceptable and those 
who pursue it are actually more 
likely to be self-supporting by the 
occasional and seasonal work they 
are able to take than the city- 
dwelling unemployed. 

The most frightening aspect of 
the whole issue is the lack of 
tolerance in our society to alter- 
native lifestyles. I write from the 
standpoint of the archetypal 
conservative middle-class 
woman, I am married with chil- 
dren and run my own secretarial 
agency. I have a big stake in the 
structure of society as it stands, 
but the attitudes towards these 
people has worried me deeply. 


The low morale of the British is 
a diebt, but are we really so 
insecure — we who used to not 
only tolerate difference and even 
eccentricity, but actually to wel- 
come it as potentially constructive 
and refreshing? 

Yours faithfully, 

JUDITH VERITY, 

60 Clarendon Drive, SWI5. 


From Mr J. J. Maiden 
Sir, Perhaps I could add a post- 
script to your thoughtful leading 
article (June 7) on the hippy 
convoy by referring to one small 
area 1 know well, Thamesmead 
( 1.700 acres). In 1985 the physical 
damage to open space and land- 
scape effected by the less respect- 
able members of the “travelling 
community” exceeded £100.000. 

A small amendment to the law 
would provide a simple and 
effective remedy. I suggest that 48 
hours after a formal notice (wit- 
nessed by a solicitor, bailiff or 
policeman) had been affixed to 
any object, including vehicles, 
caravans, etc, which was occupy- 
ing land without permission, the 
legal owner or occupier of that 
land should be allowed to take 
legal possession and tide to the 
object without any duly to com- 
pensate or account. 

Two riders: first, to cover stolen 
and dumped property the police 
would have to be notified. Second, 
a seven-day slay could be obtained 
by the payment into court of a 
sum large enough to compensate 
the landowner for all damage plus 
costs. 

Yours etc, 

J. J. MAIDEN,

Hotel training 

From Mr P. Henderson 


Sir, Lord Young has said that 
tourism is a growth industry, and 
also that the Government want to 
reduce bureaucratic burdens on 
small businesses. If he really 
means this, he should scrap the 
Hotel and Catering Training 
Board. 

The HCTB is a leftover quango 
which taxes hotels and restaurants 


because their training standards 
are so much lower - than our 
requirements, and at best a 
considerable bureaucratic nui- 


1 percent of wages if the payroll is 
more than £70.000. Most of this is 


“exempted” if the business keeps 
written records oftraining actually 
carried out. The board also offers 
training courses to the industry, 
but the cost of providing these 
courses is more than twice the 
income raised from them. 

In the last nine years, Gidleigh 
Park has created 30 jobs in central 
Devon. We consider the HCTB at 
best irrelevant to our needs, 


sauce. 

This board claims that it helps 
the industry. We and almost all of 
our colleagues running small ho- 
tels want to see the back of them, 
or at least to see the payroll limits 
at which the tax is imposed raised 
from the current £70,000 to 
£300.000 or more. 

It is particularly ironic that a 
board which claims to be repre- 
sentative of the industry consists 
of only three hoteliers, two from 
large chains, and one restaurateur, 
a few sundry academics and 
consultants, and seven officers of 
large trade unions. 

Yours faithfully, 

PAUL HENDERSON,

On the verge 

From Mr David G. Street 


Family breakdown 


Sir, Those who make dandelion 
wine know that the best lime to 
harvest the dandelions is on a 
bright sunny day when the flowers 
are fully open. And the best 
vintage is gleaned from an open 
meadow — never the roadside 
verge unless one likes the wine to 
have a petrol-cum-exhaust fla- 
vour. 

To answer Mr C Hart's ques- 
tion (May 31) dandelions grow in

fine wines.

From Mr George G. Brown 
Sir. There is an important omis- 
sion from the premise on which 
the Lord Chancellor’s consulta- 
tion paper on family courts is 
based. Nowhere is there any 
recognition of the facts that in the 
past 15 years the number of 
divorces has in round terms 
trebled, that the rate of increase in 
this country is the highest in 
Europe and that, in consequence, 
there are dear signs of national 
moral decay. 

This omission means, first, that 
insuffident attention is likely to be 
given to the administrative strain 
which is already imposed on the 
divorce county courts and second, 
that the purpose of family courts is 
unlikely to receive proper and 
balanced consideration. 

The purpose of a family court 
must be to promote the stability of 
femily life and to resolve familial 
problems with the minimum of 
stress, unpleasantness and lasting 
damage. 

As the General Synod Marriage 
Commission said, “with the pos- 
sible exception of the limited 
fiinds channelled to maniage- 

S idance counselling agencies. 

ere is next to no sip that 
Government values marriage as 
an important serial institution". 
Yours faithfully.

From Mr H. N. Best 
Sir, Your report today (June 3) 
about the seizure by Customs of a 
car used, without the knowledge of 
its owner, for carrying drugs serves 
to draw public attention to the 
extraordinary power of Customs 
officers. 

This is often combined with an 
apparently imbecile insensitivity, 
summed up well by the statement: 
“Any vehicle is liable to be seized 
if it is used in smuggling. It does 
not matter if the owner was 
unaware the vehicle was carrying, 
the goods.” 

Responsible as I am for manag- 
ing two speciality metals busi- 
nesses, one of which has twice won 
a Queen's award for export 
achievement, I am often struck by 
the way some government depart- 
ments officially encourage export 
trade while Customs officiously 
set out to make it as difficult as 
possible. Let me give two recent 
examples. 

A container of aluminium al- 
loys was held up for over a week at 
Southampton, thereby missing its 
ship and arriving several weeks 
late at its ultimate destination, 
simply because the (irrelevant) 
tensile strength was not declared, 
even though we had made literally 
thousands of similar shipments in 
the past. There was no apology for 
the error. 

Then a small shipment of ferro 
alloy was seized in London be- 
cause no export licence had been 
applied for. Nobody in the finn 
knew this was necessary. The 
matter was quickly put right and 
Customs have now offered us the 
choice of paying £500 or being 
taken to court for breaking the 
law. 

To these examples can be added 
the continuous problems of im- 
porting small quantities of special 
and essential raw materials, when 
Customs officials seem automati- 
cally to put the documents at the 
bottom of their “in" trays, causing 
delays of a week or more for which 
again there is never even a hint of 
an apology. 

The power of Customs is in fact 
so great that many people are 
reluctant to complain for fear of 
reprisals. There is a theory around 
that the existence of the European 
Community reduces the need for 
Customs officers; to which the 
said officers are responding, in the 
time-honoured way of public ser- 
vants under threat, by finding 
unnecessary rules to apply.

Ordination of women 


From the Rev Dr E. L~ Mascall 
'Sir, Canon Alan Wilkinson's letter 
on the ordination of women in 
your issue of June 3 provides a 
luminous example of the difficulty 
of getting a serious theological 
issue discussed as such and not as 
a matter of social convenience and 
conformity. 

Hard as it is to persuade 
feminists of this, there are pro- 
found arguments against female 
priesthood which arise from the 
actual way in which God has 
provided for the redemption of 
the human race and behind that to 
the very nature of the human race 
as male and female. This has 
nothing to do with male chauvin- 
ism; so far from implying that the 
female sex is inferior to the male, 
it implies that in many respects it 
is superior. 

Canon Wilkinson's reference to 
Anglican rethinking about contra- 
ception is a skilful irrelevancy. We 
ail knew that an Anglican synod 
could make a mistake; it will make 
another if it goes ahead with 
ordaining women. 

I am. Sir, your obedient servant, 
EL. MASCALL,

Children’s diet 

From Dr Louise Graham 
Sir. Professor Marks (June 2) 
, recklessly compromises the health 
of our children by advocating 
unrestricted consumption of sugar 
and saturated fat. 

The enormous amount of media 
coverage given to his mischievous 
remarks, made to the World Sugar 
Research Organisation, corre- 
sponds to the eagerness of parents 
to clutch at any straws which will 
reassure them that they can cany 
on poisoning their children with 
junk foods. No parent wants to 
feel guilty. 

For each underweight child in 
the “muesli-belt", there are thou- 
sands who, under a mountain of 
fat, are suffering from mal- 
nutrition due to the over- 
consumption of sugar and white 
flour.

MURDER OF THE KING 
AND QUEEN OF SERVIA. 


A MILITARY REVOLUTION. 


COLOGNE, June 11 
Telegrams despatched to the 
Cologne Gazette from Belgrade this 
morning sayr- 

‘ 'Bands of young men are parad- 
ing the streets waving flags and 
crying, ‘Long live Karageorge- 
vTtch!’ From nearly every house 
flags are flying, but there is no 
display of crape in sign of mourn- 
ing. The Royal Standard is no 
longer flying from the Palace. 
“The bodies of the King and 

Queen and the rest of the dead will 
be placed in plain coffins today. 
The King will probably be buried 
in the Convent of Rakovza, while 
the others will be laid to rest in the 
local cemetery. 

“The Skupshtina and the Senate 
will on June 15 sanction by formal 
election the army’s proclamation of 
Prince Peter Karageorgevitch as 
King. Great crowds are thronging 
the streets demonstrating in favour 
of the new Government. 

“Eariy in the morning officers 
galloped through the city, shouting 
from the saddle that King Alexan- 
der and Queen Draga had been 
shot Queen Draga is said to have 
received numerous bullet wounds. 
It is related that the bodies of the 
King and Queen were placed in 
shrouds and let down through a 
window into the Palace gardens, 
whoa they were imme diately 
placed on a baggage wagon. The 
Queen's two brothers were also 
shot in the Palace. I have just 
heard that Queen Draga’s three 
sisters are alive. . . . 


BUDAPEST, June 11* 
The Budapest Hiriap gives the 
following account from Belgrade of 
the coup i Etat there: - 
“A company of troops broke into 
the Konak and assassinated the 
inmates as they hurriedly left their 
beds. The assailants appear to have 
met with great resistance on the 
balcony side of the Palace, where 
curtains are tom down and win 
dows are broken. Probably the 
occupants tried to escape that way. 
In the small garden in . front of the 
windows of the . Konak gloves 
soldiers' caps, and tom articles of 
clothing lie scattered. 

“Two guns are now mounted in 
front of the Konak, and the troops 
garrisoning the Palace are being 
liberally treated with wine from the 
Royal cellars. In the Ministers’ 
Palace a council is being held. As 
Lieutenant Mischitch, who led the 
conspirators, left the Palace he was 
greeted by the crowd with cheers, 
and a milltaiy band blew a fanfare. 
The demeanour of the people is 


quiet, and no indignation at last 
night’s assassinations is manifest- 
ed. The late Queen is even now, 
after her tragic fate, spoken of in 
terms of abuse 


BERLIN, June 11 
A telegram from Semiin on the 
events at Belgrade published by the 
Nadonal-Zeitung says:- 
“The leader of the military 
assailants was Lieutenant-Colonel 
Mischitch, of the 6th Infantry 
Regiment, who himself murdered 
the Queen. The latter, together 
with her brother and sisters, was 
struck, down with an axe and killed. 
The King was shot The Queen 
died at once, but the King lived a 
few minutes after the fatal shot was 
fired... 


VIENNA, June 11* 
What purports to be an official 
explanation of the murder of the 
King and Queen of Servia has been 
issued at Belgrade. It tells the 
following story:- 

After Hinnpr nn Wednesda y 
evening the King and Queen with 
their relatives and several Minis- 
ters, were sitting on the balcony of 
the Palace, when suddenly the 
King demanded of Queen Draga 
that she should leave the country. 
She refused, and in so doing was 
supported by certain of the Minis- 
ters present. When the King saw 
that his commands were thus 
opposed be ordered the military to 
occupy the Palace. Meanwhile, 
however, the Queen’s friends had 
also been active and had collected 
their supporters. A fight occurred 
between the two factions, and in 
the course of it the King and Queen 
were killed. 


Half the page facing the above 
news is devoted to an advertise- 
ment for the Encyclopaedia Bri- 
tanni ca displaying extracts from 
its pages on Serbian history and 
biography; the headlines to it are 
about three times larger than those 
of the news pages. The text points 
out how the ELB. “will answer the 
questions which the news of the 
day presents The publishers of\ 
this, the tenth edition, was The 
limes from whom the 35 volumes 
could be bought for one guinea 
[105p] and thereafter 27 monthly 
payments of the same sum. 


As she is spoke 

From Mrs Christine Brinkley 
Sir. I am interested to read of the 
reforms in modem language 
leaching, with a new emphasis on 
the use of language. As a lecturer, 
in Italian I have recently been 
perusing the new GCSE ’Italian 
syllabus and find that instructions 
to the student include the follow- 
ing sentence: “You and your host 
family are sat watching the 
television". 

Yours faithfully.

OBITUARY 

MR FRANK COUSINS 


Outspoken champion of the trade union left 

— 4<i,-nnnn rn hie. nnir 


Mr Frank Cousins, PC who 
died yesterday at the age of 8 1, 
was general secretary of the 
Transport and General 
Workers’ Union from 1956 to 

1969. and as such played a 
leading role in the labour 
disputes of that time, as well 
as in the internal controver- 
sies of the union movement 
and the Labour Party. 

Forceful and at limes ag- 
gressive, he attracted attention 
because, unlike his famous 
predecessors in union office, 
Ernest Bevin and . Arthur 
Deakin, he saw himself as 
leader of the non-communist 
left of the union movement. 

This led him to oppose wage 
restraint in the 1950s, and to 
pit himself against Hugh Gait- 
skell in the battles in the 
Labour Party over unilateral 
nuclear disarmament and 
Clause 4. 

For two years, from 1964 to 
1966, Cousins joined the La- 
bour Government as Minister 
of Technology. Bui it was not 
a happy period for him, since 
he never really took to the 
House of Commons, and on 
resigning over the wage freeze 
of July. 1966, he returned to 
the TGWU. 

He was a dramatic speaker, 
who liked to stand on the 
platform or rostrum in his 
shirt sleeves, from time to 
time pausing as if his next 
words were to be a bombshell. 

But in spite of his obvious 
intelligence and quickness of 
wit, he did not have a highly 
developed power of consecu- 
tive thought, and that often 
marred the effect he was trying 
to produce. 

On retiring from the 
TGWU he was chairman of 
tiie Community Relations 
Commission from (968 to 

1970. 

Frank Cousins was bom in 
Bui well, Nottinghamshire, on 
September 8, 1904, the eldest 
son of a family of ten. He left 
school at 14 and worked for a 
time as a coal-miner near 
Doncaster. Later, he became a 
long-distance lorry driver. 

In 1938 he became a full- 
time union official of the 
TGWU, as organizer of the 
road transport section, and 
rose through various offices to 
become assistant general sec- 
retary in 1955. 

His election as general sec- 
retary the following year, be- 
cause of the early death after 
only a brief period of office of 
Arthur Tiffin, was unexpected 
and immediately plunged him 
into the national limelighL 

He made it dear from the 
beginning that he was deter- 
mined not to wear the political 
mantle of Bevin or Deakin, 
who had been leaders of the 
right wing of the union 
movement 

At the 1956 Trades Union 
Congress he led the opposition 



. Cousins bids farewell to tbe 
TUC at Portsmouth in 1969 

later came tbe London bus 
strike, in which Cousins saw 
himself as the champion of the 
unions. against the 
Government’s wages policy, 
and was deeply hurt that not 
all tbe union leaders saw him 
in that-lighL 

Scarcely had the repercus- 
sions of that strike died away 
when Cousins found himself 
leading the left in the Labour 
movement in the battles with 
Gaitskell over unilaterial dis- 
armament and Clause 4- of the 
Labour Party constitution 
(dealing with common owner- 
ship of the means of produc- 
tion, distribution and 
exchange). 

He won the Clause 4 battle, 
at least to the extent that the 
clause was not removed from 
the party constitution, and 
had a temporary success on 
nuclear disarmament at the 
party conference of 1960, 
though the decision was re- 
versed the following year. 

With the TUC Cousins’s 
colleagues on the general 
council found him a difficult 
man to work with from the 
beginning. • 

He was. very conscious of 
the power of his union, which 
then had 1 ,250,000 voles out 
of a total of rather more than 8 
million at the Trades Union 
Congress, and one million out 
of a total of nearly 7 million at 
the Labour Party Conference. 

He did not, therefore, show 
the' reticence expected of a 
“new boy” on the general 
council, taking the view that 
the spokesman of the TGWU 
must make his weight felt 

But though he was often 
aggressive, he was also unpre- 
dictable, so that his colleagues 
complained that they did not 
know where they were with 
him- This was probably why 
he never had a stable group of 
supporters. 

Yel many of those who 
found him most infuriating 
had a soft spot for him in spite 


His devotion to his union 
and to socialism, as he under- 
stood it- were never in doubt. 
If his convictions differed 
from those of the general 
secretary of the TUC or of the 
Leader of the Labour Party, he 
was rarely prepared to modify 
them. 

Wifhm his own union, 
Cousins succeeded in impos- 
ing his personality and view 
to an exceptional degree. But 
he maintained that he was the 
servant ofhis members and, if 
they insisted, he lei them have 
their way. , , , 

He was scornful of the 
Communists in the union, and 
advised caution when there 
were calls for excessive de- 
mands on the employers. _ 

There were in feet signs 
that, as the years went by. 
Cousins began to mellow a 
little. 

He led the opposition to 
TUC participation in the Na- 
tional Economic Develop- 
ment Council, but once the 
decision lo enter had been 
taken, he not only became a 
member himself but proved 
himself a useful one. 

When Mr Harold Wilson, as 
he then was. brought Cousins 
into the Government in 1964. 
there were suggestions that he 
had done so al least partly in 
order to remove an awkward 
character from the trade union 
leadership. 

However that may have 
been. Cousins never took to 
Commons ways and proce- 
dures, believing that tradition- 
al practices were time wasting 
and calculated to prevent 
practical men from getting 
things done. 

It was no surprise, therefore, 
when he resigned over the 
wage freeze and returned to 
his union office, from which 
he had been given leave, and 
to the TUC general council. 

His executive insisted that 
he also leave the House of 
Commons, lo which he had 
been elected in January, 1965, 
as MP for Nuneaton, and he 
did this later in the same year 
after fighting the Prices and 
incomes Bill in Parliament. 

He became once again a 
leading opponent of govern- 
ment economic policies, fight- 
ing against Mrs Castte's plans 
for penal sanctions against 
strikers, for instance, and 
helping to frustrate them. 

But he never regained the 
prestige as spokesman of the 
left wing which he had en- 
joyed in the trade union 
movement before he entered 
politics. 

. In 1968 he became chair- 
man of the Central Training 
Council, and in the same year 
chairman of the Community 
Relations Board, where he 
remained for the next two 
years. 

He married, in 1930. Annie 
Elizabeth Judd. They' had two 


MR STUART WILLIAMS 


Mr Stuart Williams, OBE, 
who made a significant contri- 
bution to the stability and 
success of BBC. Television 
during its crucial years of 
rapid expansion and growth, 
has died aged 71. 

Stuart Graeme Williams 
joined the BBC at the age of 16 
in a very junior post on Radio 
Times. Two older brothers, D. 
G. and P. G. Williams, were 
already on the staff of that 
journal and all three were to 
rise to important BBC posi- 
tions: D. G. as editor. Radio 
Times', P. G. as news editor in 
the overseas services; and S. 
G. as controller, television 
administration. 

“S. G.”, as he was generally 
known within the corporation, 
moved from Radio Times to a 
succession of administrative 
posts of increasing signifi- 
cance, ai first mainly in the 
overseas services. 


By 1 946 he had held no less 
than twenty BBC jobs, and 
had a reputation for sound, 
clear-headed and 

unbureaucralic administrator. 

Williams was a man of 
striking personality and quick 
intelligence, and at the same 
time a ready and attentive 
listener. 

He managed to enjoy tbe 
confidence of his more rigid 
superiors, even though he was 
not above bending the rules 
for individuals in deserving 
cases, and taking risks to help 
those in difficulty. 

These qualities led him to 
senior positions in BBC staff 
administration before he was 
selected for the highly de- 
manding position of Control- 
ler of Administration, 
Television, in 1956. 

This was the climax of his 
career and he held the post for 
18 years until bis retirement. 


It made him a key figure in the 
innermost circles of BBC Tele- 
vision where he successfully- 
built up a system of adminis- 
trative practices which pro- 
vided a firm and solid 
foundation for the new public 
service. 

Creative practitioners, par- 
ticularly in broadcasting, tend 
to have small regard lor the 
administrators who are re- 
sponsible for the allocation of 
resources. But through his 
understanding of their prob- 
lems, his positive approach, 
and his even-tempered rea- 
sonableness, Williams was 
able to win the confidence and 
co-operation of his pro- 
gramme producing colleagues, 
and of the staff. 

He was appointed OBE in 
1949. 

He is survived by Cather- 
ine, his wife, and by their only 
daughter. 


PROFESSOR ANTHONY ANDRE ASEN 


Professor Anthony 
Andreasen, who died on June 
S. was a surgeon who had a 
distinguished career in the 
Indian Medical service, hold- 
ing chairs of surgery in Orissa 
and Calcutta and acting as 
surgeon to the Viceroy. 

Thereafter he continued to 
practise and teach in the 
United States, in Africa and in 
Britain. 

His last years were spent as 
a private practitioner in Cam- 
bridge, developing bis lifelong 
interest in alternative forms of 
healing. 

.Andreasen was bom at 
Grimsby in 1906 and educat- 


ed at Bedford Modem School 
and Bart's, where he qualified 
in 1930. 

In 1943 he was elected a 
Fellow of the Royal Society of 
Edinburgh. 

Joining the IMS in 1933 he 
served on the North-West 
frontier, in North Africa and 
in Burma, reaching tbe rank of 
Colone). 

In 1945 he became the last 
British Professor of Surgery 
and Residency Surgeon in 
Calcutta. 

After 1947 Andreasen was 
invited to the United States to 
continue his pioneering re- 
search in open-heart surgery. 


and became a Fellow of 
Surgery at the Mayo Cline and 
at Johns Hopkins University. 

After a period of further 
research in Britain, he re- 
turned to practice as a clinical 
surgeon in West and East 
Africa in 1954, inducting peri- 
ods as Government Surgeon 
in Ghana and Uganda. 

He finally returned to this 
country in 1976. where, be- 
sides supervising in anatomy 
for several Cambridge col- 
leges, he combined his knowl- 
edge of conventional 
medicine with the practice of 
osteopathy, yoga and other 
forms of alternative healing.

African 

spirits 

Four systems of belief compete 
for the spiritual domination of 
Africa, according to All 
Maznri, presenter of Tke Afri- 
cans (880). Ancient reli- 
gions, with an attractive view 
of nature as God's autobiogra- 
phy, still flourish; to prove this 
there was footage of a Yorraba 
mask procession and a gory 
sacrifice in Senegal after 
which a naked woman was 
smeared with the blood of a 
cow and a goat in order to cure 
a pain. 

Christianity, die presenter 
asserted, was an African reB- 
gioo long before it reached 
Britain; Islam's grip on its 
African territory is threatened" 
only by the allure of Western 
materialism; and Commamsm 
is the fourth competitor. 
Mazrnf described Marx as the 
last of the great Jewish proph- 
ets — one of several glib 
assertions which maned an 
otherwise fine programme. 

The Africans naturally in- 
vites comparison with BasQ 
Davison's The Story of Africa, 
now being repeated on Chan- 
nel 4 on Saturdays. The latter 
is historically orientated and 
more formally organized. It is 
steeped In white man's guQt 
over the colonial past, while 
The Africans aggressively em- 
phasizes areas of African cul- 
tural superiority. 

Both series are visually 
sumptuous, although The Sto- 
ry of Africa has higher produc- 
tion values overall. The 
Africans has a ramhting style 
hot may well have covered 
more ground at greater depth 
by the end of its nine-week 
ran. The argument of last 
night's programme was that 
Christianity has a crisis of 
relevance in Africa which can 
only be resolved supporting 
liberation movements. This 
led ns to moving film of Bishop 
Desmond Tutu preaching in 
South Africa. 

A Very Peculiar Practice 
(BBC2), Andrew Davies's sat- I 
ire on university characters, i 
has exceeded its great early 
promise and become the out- 
standing joy of the summer 
schedules. Last night Dr Buz- 
zard. the campas's upwardly 
mobile fascist, made an aneat- 
pected bid for the audience's 
sympathy by attempting to 
blame his Genghis in»«« atti- 
tude to practising medicine on 
bis frigid Sloane wife. On 
diffident young hero, who was 
called “so wet that yon could 
shoot snipe off his hack", is 
drying out fast with a modern 
variation on the theme of the 
jolly proletarian nymphomani- 
ac. Meanwhile, at tile black- 
board, his charming Burmese 
flatmate moves closer to the 
Nobel Prize.

Mania of self-portrayal 


Oskar Kokoschka 

1886-1980 

Tate 

Works on Paper 

Marlborough Fine Art 


Some artists go astray In later life 
simply because they ran out of 
creative steam. Others undergo a 
change- of heart or conscience 
which somehow turns them aside 
from their true bent. And some 
continue Jo develop with perfect 
| single-mindedness and interior log- 
ic along their own line, but in a 
direction which many even of their 
contemporaries wish they had not 
found it necessary to choose. Oskar 
Kokoschka . the centenary of whose 
birth is being celebrated with a 
major exhibition at the Tate until 
August 10 and a smaller assem- 
blage of works on paper, mostly 
lent from private collections, ax 
Marlborough Fine Art until July 5, 
belongs to the third category, and 
since be died only six years ago it is 
a little early for the almost inevita- 
ble reassessment to have begun, 
whereby people will decide that the 
later works, dubiously received in 
their own time, are actually the 
crown of hi$.achievement. 

What the Tate show principally 


does for us is to reaffirm the 
traditional valuation. The selection 
is not enormous, but h does 
manage to represent quite thirty all 
the periods through which Ko- 
koschka passed. And one comes 
away with an unequivocal admira- 
tion for his very early Jugendstil 
graphics and book illustrations, 
and total wonder and delight attbe 
brilliance of his early draughts- 
manship: at the time, around the 
drawing 7Vo Girls Trying on 
Clothes (1907-08), when his work 
was virtually indistinguishable 
from that of his friend Egon 
Schiele, it seems as though there 
was nothing he could not do with a 
few economical lines and maybe a 
dasb.of colour. His early portraits 
too are stunning: a vivid and 
immediate feeling for individual 
character as well as the formal 
aspects of pictorial composition 
irradiates such works as Adolf Loos 
(1909) and Joseph de Montesquiou- 
Fezenzac (1910). 

But very soon doubts begin to 
fturade. There is an outbreak of 
self-portraiture, often of a peculiar- 
ly obsessive type, as in the inno- 
cent-sounding Self-Portrait with 
DoU (1920-21), which in feet 
records. Kokoschka's strange pas- 
sion for the insufferable Alma 
Mahler, carried to the point of 
having this life-size doll made in 
her. image. And. ever after, he 
seems inescapably drawn to mak- 


ing everyone he portrays, male and 
female; look vaguely like himself 
(This is particularly noticeable in 
the range of figure drawings at 
Marlborough, which are all after 
1930.) However, in other respects 
the short period from 1920 to 1923 
does represent an extraordinary 
flowering of his talents as a painter. 

His colours, which have been 
muddy, clear and brighten (possi- 
bly under a belated influence from 
the Blaue Reiter group of expres- 
sionists), and his brush strokes, 
which have been (and will soon be 
again) of that fidgety, nervous 
variety for which, in German 
painting, Corinth can mostly be 
blamed, become solid and decisive. 
The landscapes of this time are rich 
and formal, and the portraits and 
subject-pictures powerfully con- 
vinced 

And then, the long decline? Not 
necessarily. There are many who 
admire the big landscapes from the 
days of Kokoschka's exile, though I 
lend to feel that one has to look too 
carefully in order to distinguish 
whether the picture is of London or 
New York or Prague or Istanbul: 
they are all made to conform to a 
particular convention in which 
individual qualities of tight and 
colour are ignored and everything 
seems to explode outwards from 
some unexplained still centre. Else- 
where, the colours become garish 
instead of rich, and the little pecks 



Kokoschka's passion for Alma Mahler carried to the point of haring a life-size doll made in her fawp*' 
the obsessi o n behind the innocent-soanding Self-Portrait with DoU of 1920-21 


of paint seem to become a nervous 
tic rather than a stylistic statement 
However, it is in this period — 
particularly the later part of it, from 
the Forties on - that Kokoschka 
really comes into his own as a 
water-colourist. 

His intense feeling for the hidden 
dynamism in live flowers, picked 
fruit and vegetables, and dead fish 
turns his fastest, most casual water- 


colour sketch into a work of almost 
Japanese precision, economy and 
passion. Where many find the 
major paintings of the same period 
have a slightly bombastic quality, 
here the sensitivity of the born 
painter shines forth unimpaired. 

Kokoschka has always been a 
puzzle, a painter very difficult to 
pin down. Even a hundred years 
after he was born, the puzzle 


remains uncracked. The traditional 
solution seems to remain valid 
with all reservations, for the Eighty 
ies. But the next decade may well 
prove to have very different ideas. 
And at least there is no doubt that 
Kokoschka is of a stature to require 
our continued scrutiny and arouse 
our continued interest.

Minister’s 
daughter 
found dead 
at Oxford 

Continued from page 1 
tion in Oxford. A number of 
people are now in castody 
being questioned in connection 
with the events surrounding 
this nutter.*' 

The five being questioned 
were four men and a woman, 
all in their early 20s. They 
were taken to the city’s St 
Ablate police station. 

The news of Miss 
Channon's death shocked un- 
dergraduates who had taken 
part in the drinking 

parties. 

A statement issued by die 
Very Rev Eric Heaton, the 
Dean of Christ Church, said 
that the room in which Miss 
Chanoon was found had been 
used as a study by a Christ 
Church undergraduate, but 
that undergraduate had slept 
at his own lodgings out of the 
college that night 

Mis Mary Moore, principal 
of St Hilda's College, safclthat 
the college was deeply shocked 
and saddened by the news of 
Miss Channon's death. 

She had been studying since 
1983 at St Hilda's and had 
previously been at St Mary's 
private school at Wantage. 
Her final examinations in 
modern history started last 
Wednesday and finished on 
Tuesday. 

Miss Cbannoo was a mem- 
ber of the Oxford University 
Student Union. A spokeswom- 
an for the onion said last night 
that undergraduates believed 
her death was a tragic accident 
• Miss Chanoon came from a 
family with a long tradition of 
wealth, privilege and high 
political office. Her father 
became the youngest MP in, 
the House of Commons in 
1999 at the age of 23 after 
winning a 1 * by-election at; 
Southend West, a seat that 
had practically become a fam- 
ily heirloom — fonr ancestors 
had been Speakers of the 
House (Gavin Bell writes). 

Inherited wealth from the 
Guinness fortnne came from 
the marriage of her paternal 
grandfather Sir Henry 
"Chips” Chanoon, American- 
born favourite of the gossip 
columnists in die 1930s, novel- 
ist, MP and host to royalty 
and the jet-set, to Honor 
Guinness, granddaughter of 
the first Lord Iveagh, founder 
of die Guinness empire.

A hired Jagnar took them to

Fox, a cofledor of medals,

Sorry, said Spinks, they had

The hotel breakfast prices 
had already dismayed them, 
and they escaped to a nearby 
cafe to be perplexed by such 
Httfanriliar items on the menu 
as “best back bacon" and 
“bap”. Bot they thought the 
£3U5 for two breakfasts per- 
fectly reasonable. It was, how- 
ever, slightly cheeky' of Mr A: 
Fox to leave a dollar biH as a

Warsaw Pact proposes 1m cuts m European troops 


Combined from page 1 

verify this figure. The inherent 
problems of the Vienna nego- 
tiations will also be com- 
pounded rather than solved by 
expanding the arms forum to 
include other, even neutral, 
European powers. 

General Nikolai Chervov, 
the Soviet arms specialist, 
tried to dispel one potential 


criticism of the proposal, the 
suspicion that Soviet troops 
withdrawn to behind the Ural 
Mountains could easily return 
to the central European front 
The general said here that 
forces withdrawn from Europe 
could be demobilised, the 
weaponry destroyed or stored 
on internationally supervised 
territory, equipment could be 


redeployed in the civilian 
economy — military trucks 
could be used in agriculture, 
he said — and both sides 
would pledge themselves not 
to funnel defence savings into 
designing new weapons. 

The appeal is both more 
and less than expected. Less, 
in the sense that the proposals, 
though grand in scale, do little 


to sidestep the problems that 
have dogged conventional 
-troop reduction talks for over 
a decade. 

Less too, because The pact 
did not couple its proposals 
with an announcement to 
withdraw unilater ally, as a 
sign of goodwill, a portion of 
its troops. 


But it is better than it could 
have been: above all the 
Warsaw Pact communique 
which accompanied the ap- 
peal is moderate in tone. It 
does not seek to make capital 
out of the US abdication from 
the Salt 2 arms accord and 
commits the pact to "multilat- 
eral and bilateral talks" be- 
tween East and West Europe.

The Wool worth high street 
chain yesterday threw out the 
latest — and final — takeover 
bid worth £1.9- billion from 
the Dixons electrical group. 

Mr Stanley Kalins, the Dix- 
ons chairman, backed up the 
increased offer with bis brain- 
child for a new Woolwonh 
with several hundred stores 
split into DixoiJS and Currys 
and the .rest relaunched to 
provide a third leg in the 
home. leisure and entertain- 
ment market. 

- In the stock, market, the 
pendulum swung in favour of 
■ Dixons as the Woohvortb 
share price 'dropped 40p to 
785p — 30p below the new 
terms. For the first lime. 
Dixons is also offering a cash 
alternative worth 8Q5p. 

Mr Nick Bubb, top stores 
analyst at Scrimgeour .Vickers, 
the stockbroker, said: “It ap- 
pears to have swung Dixons’ 
way. The new offer is cleverly 
pitched. They are offering a 
fair exit p/e and the plans for 
the Woolwonh stores make a 
lot of sense:" 

Mr Geoff Muicahy. 
theWoohvorth 'chief execu- 
tive, said: “I'm quite confi- 
dent we'll see them off The 



Stanley-Kalms: Woohvorth 
caught in “vicious cycle” 

price is still totally inadequate 
and their strategy is ludicrous. 
They -are talking about ex- 
panding the space for electri- 
cal goods in, the high street 
when the whole market is 
moving ouLof town." 

Mr Kalms sweetened his 
new bid . with news that 
Dixons’ profits for the year 
just ebded had risen by 97 per 
cent to £78.1 million and sales 
during die first six weeks of 
this year were ahead by 29 per 
cent. “ Business is booming,” 
he said.

He said that ■ Woohvorth, 
which was caught in a “vi- 
cious cycle of low sales, low 
profitability, and market loss" 
had .7 - million square feet 
which was far too much space. 

He wanted to use 2 million 
square feet for Dixons and 
Currys. He planned to carve 
up 260 of the city centre stores 
which would be shared with 
Dixons and Currys. The rest 
of the 580 smaller 
neighbourhood stores would 
be revitalized with many tra- 
ditional lines disappearing. “A 


transformation of ihe Wool- 
wonh chain will begin on day 
one." Mr Kalms said. 

“Woolwonh is overspa ced- 
The problem is acute in the 
larger stores in major centres. 
This is implicitly recognized 
in the group's own closure and 
disposal programme and the 
plans to give up space to other 
retailers in up to 60 larger 
stores- 

Dixons also plans to move 
its Power City outlets into 
Woolworth's B&Q chain. 

The full terms of the new 
bid involve the issue of 1 8 new 
Dixons and 22 convertible 
preference shares for every 10 
Woolwonhs. The cash and 
loan slock alternative is reck- 
oned to be worth S05p. 

•Last night Woolwonh bol- 
stered its defences with a 
forecast of a 60 per cent rise in 
dividends this year to accom- 
pany the . previously an- 
nounced 30 per cent Vise in 
profits. It satisfied the Take- 
over Panel by pointing out 
that these were always subject 
to normal trading patterns — 
assumptions which it had 
committed in making its prof- 
it forecast last week and which 
led to a rebuke. 


Tough action promised on 
unscrupulous salesmen 


Tough action against un- 
scrupulous salesmen of life 
assurance and unit trusts was 
promised by Sir Kenneth 
Berill, chairman of the Securi- 
ties and Investments Board, 
yesterday. 

Speaking at the annual 
meeting of the British Insur- 
ance Brokers Association. Sir 
Kenneth said that clause 54 of 
the. Financial Services B01, 
which contains the power to 
ban undesirable persons from 
investment businesses “is not 
simply some obscure reserve 
power to be used as a threat 
but not actually 
implemented". . 

“Where we feel there is the 
need we shall not hesitate to 
make disqualification orders," 
he added. 


By Onr City Staff 

Sir Kenneth's remarks fol- 
low the Government's refusal 
to endorse the proposals of the 
Marketing of Investments 
Board Organizing Committee 
(Miboc)fbr a central register of 
all life assurance and unit trust 
salesmen, and the introduc- 
tion of a test of competence 
for them. 

The refiisal was announced 
on. Monday by Mr Michael 
Howard. Minister for Con- 
sumer and Corporate Affairs. 

The proposal would have 
necessitated an amendment to 
the Financial Services Bill 
which places the onus on firms 
authorized under the new self 
regulatory regime to ensure 
that their employees are prop- 
erly trained, supervised and 
controlled. 


The Bill also provides for 
the creation of a blacklist of 
salesmen who have been 
banned from selling life assur- 
ance and unit trusts. This 
would be maintained by the 
SIB. 

Sir Kennetb said that Miboc 
and the SIB were “in broad 
terms” happy with the 
progress of the Bill in Parlia- 
ment. With regard to fife 
assurance and unit trust sales, 
he said that the Bill would 
“not before time" introduce 
the kind of rules on issues 
such as standard of business 
conduct, capital adequacy, 
and compensation which to 
date applied only to those 
registered with the Insurance 
Broken Registration Council. 


Regalian 
up 65% 
for year 

By Jndfth Huntley 
Commercial Property 
Correspondent 

Regalian Properties, the 
company which has made its 
name in converting rundown 
council estates into desirable 
homes, announced record pre- 
tax profits yesterday of £3.68 
million for the year to March 
31, up 65.1 per cent on the 
previous year. Turnover rose 
by 76.7 per cent to £19.18 

milli on. 

Changes in accounting poli- 
cy mean that interest costs are 
now charged to profits over 
the whole selling period of 
each of Regalian’s develop- 
ments. But for this, pretax 
profits would have been lower 
at £3.52 million. - 
Regalian 's urban renewal 
schemes in south and north- 
west London and at Washing- 
ton New Town, Tyne and 
Wear, are selling well and will 
contribute to profits next year. 

The company is also devel- 
oping very large residential 
and commercial schemes at 
Wapping in London. 

Earnings per r share have 
risen from I3.l6p to 2I.06p 
with a final dividend bf2.75p 
per share making a total for 
the year of 4p. 

Regalian, which had an £8.5 
million rights issue at the 
interim stage . last year, is 
recommending a one-for-one 
scrip issue to

rise in profits 


By Teresa Poole 
APV Holdings, the process 


£214 million bid from Siebe, 
yesterday forecast an 80 per 
cent increase in pretax profits 
to £27 million for 1986, and 
said that shareholders were 
being “steamrollered" into ac- 
cepting an Offer which under- 
valued the company. Until 
recently City expectations for 
APVs current year profits had 
been around £1 9 million but 
Mr Fred Smith, chief execu- 
tive. insisted that the official 
forecast was conservative. 
APV shares were unchanged 
at 67 lp compared with the 
677p convertible preference 
shar^ offer and the 670p cash 
alternative. The bid will dose 
14 days after the posting of the 
revised offer document Siebe 


years 


shares fell 5p to 965p. 

For the past five 
APVs profits have been below 
the 1980 level of £18.6 mil- 
lion, felling to £8.6 million in 
1984. The company said the 
recovery was because of the 
elimination of losses in South 
Africa and Europe, and that 
1986 would also have a contri- 
bution from the new joint 
venture in Germany. 

Mr Smith added: “The final 
reason is that we have got real 
growth back into the system ” 
APV will recommend a divi- 
dend of 18p for the current 
year, a 53 per cent increase. 

APV said that it had 
“oustanding" prospects and 
died foe potential of its new 
continuous process for mak-

Base rate 
outlook 
lifts pound 

By David Smith 

Economics Correspondent 

The pound rose strongly 
yesterday, amid market sug- 
gestions foal the Bank ol 
England was intervening to 
keep it from going up too 
quickly. The sterling index 
gained 0.6 to 76.5. 

The pound was buoyed by 
the realization that the poor 
Tuesday money supply fig- 
ures. with a rise of 3 percent in 
sterling M3, make an early cut 
in base rates unlikely. 

Money market rates rose by 
Vie or 16 points, foe foree- 
month interbank rate rising to 
9 7 /e -9 13 /ia per cent At this 
level, there is no pressure from 
foe money markets fora cut in 
base rates from the current 10 
per cenL. _ 

The pound’s rise was mir- 
rored in foe performance ot 
foe stock market. The Finan- 
cial Times 30-share index fell 
by 13J points to 1301.1, on 
fading base rate hopes. 

Suggestions that foe Bank ol 
England was intervening in 
foe market came as the pound 
fell back from mid-afternoon 
levels of well above $1.53 
against the dollar to a dosing 
level of $ I J275, still 90 points 
up on foe day. 

It is thought that foe au- 
thorities, having ruled out 
lower base rates on domestic 
gro wunds. do not want heavy 
pressure for lower rates to 
come via foe foreign exchange 
markets. 

In Tokyo. Mr Satoshi 
Sumita. the Governor of foe 
Bank of Japan, admitted offi- 
cial intervention to hold down 
foe yen against foe dollar. 
After rising to 1 77 against foe 
yen early last week, foe dollar 
has fallen. Yesterday it dosed 
at 166.30, half a yen down on 
foe day. 


Hanson sells paper group 

By Jeremy Warner, Business Correspondent 


Hanson Trust has sold foe 
two specialist papermaking 
businesses of Robert Fletcher 
& Son in foe North West of 
England to Melton Meades, a 
privately owned . industrial 
holding company. 

The businesses, whidt em- 
ploy a total of 650-peopte and 
have sales of £22 million a 
year, were owned by Impend 
Group which Hanson ac- 
quired for £2.4 billion after a 
bitter takeover fight two 
months ago. 

Hanson said Imperial had 
been planning to dispose of 
the paper companies for some 
time. 

The sale did not represent 


foe beginning of a Hanson 
inspired programme of dis- 
posals among foe newly ac- 
quired Imperial companies. 
Hanson said foe deal was 
“tiny" in group terms repre- 
senting something “under £5 
million" 

The move is the 1 2th acqui- 
sition in three years for Mel- 
ton Meades, a fast growing 
Nottingham based company 
owned and controlled by Indi- 
an bom Mr Nat Puri. 

Post foe Fletcher acquisi- 
tion, Melton will employ more 
than 2,000 in activities as 
diverse as carpet manufactur- 
ing. papermaking, conversion 
of thermo-plastics materials 


by moulding and extrusion, 
and construction sen-ices. 
Sales are now running at £60 
million a year. 

Melton’s chief executive. 
James Philpous. said foe ac- 
quisition would considerably 
strengthen the group in spe- 
cialist papermaking. 

“Robert Fletcher ( Green- 
field ) is the sole UK producer 
of cigarette papers and its 
sister company Robert Fletch- 
er ( Stoneclough ) is the major 
manufacturer of lightweight 
papers for printing purposes 
including bible paper. 

“Our policy is one of buying 
quality businesses or those of 
latent quality.

Fed chief rides to 
Mexico’s rescue 


Once again. Paul Volcker is the white 
knight who has come to Mexico's 
rescue during a critical period. After 
months of talks, the latest negotia- 
tions over Mexico's $97 billion debt 
were close to collapse. Another non- 
payment crisis, certain to send the 
wrong signal to other debtor nations, 
was imminent. The much vaunted 
debt initiative of US Treasury Sec- 
retary James Baker was in trouble. 

But the US Federal Reserve Board 
chairman appears to have saved the 
day by paying a secret visit last 
Monday to his old friend, Miguel De 
La Madrid, the beleagured president 
who has been under strong domestic 
pressure to declare a moratorium on 
all or part of Mexico’s debt repay- 
ments. If Mexico reaches an agree- 
ment with the international monetary 
fund, and Mr Volcker said yesterday 
he is hopeful this will occur, then 
much of the credit goes to the US 
Centra] Bank chairman. 

li was only after Volcker’s last 
minute visit to De La Madrid that 
officials reported a break through in 
the stalled talks. Announcement of a 
new financing package in the range of 
$6 billion to $8 billion is now likely. 
Officials are now talking about a new 
loan package that would include a 
$1.5 billion loan from the IMF, $1.2 
billion in new loans from the World 
Bank and Inter-American Develop- 
ment Bank, up to $600 million in 
agricultural credits from the US. an 
unspecified amount in trade promo- 
tion loans from the Japanese govern- 
ment. up to $3.5 billion in new loans 
from commercial banks, and an 
estimated $1.2 billion in savings from 
the rescheduling of loans held by US 
and European governments. 

As a condition of receiving the 
much needed assistance, Mexico must 
agree to undertake drastic economic 
reforms which will require the admin- 
istration of De La Madrid to cut the 
soaring federal deficit almost in half, 
from more than 12 per cent of j 
national product to 6 per cent 
has been a main sticking point in the 
IMF negotiations. 

Mexican officials have stated 
repeatedly that public spending cuts of 
this magnitude would trigger riots and 
political upheaval. 

The turning point appears to have 
been Volcker’s last minute trip to 
persuade Mexican officials not to 
limit interest payments on loans to 
commercial banks. What Volcker said 
in the private talks is not known. But 
US officials, some openly critical of 
the Reagan administration's recent 
handling of relations with such an 
important central American neigh- 
bour, said certain assurances were 
given. There were reports that US 
officials made clear that as Mexico 
agreed to undertake the necessary 
domestic reforms, then enforcement 
of the reforms, particularly the deficit 
reductionxoals, would be less rigid. In 
addition, m the sprit of the Baker debt 
iniative US officials wanted a 
commitment from Mexico to agree to 
more privatization of industry and 
increased foreign investment in Mexi- 
can industry. 

US officials confirmed yesterday 


Mexico is expected to sign an agree- 
ment within a week or two. Once it 
does agree to the IMF reforms, 
officials said the affective dates of the 
programme would be staggered, 
allowing Mexico maximum flexibility 
in resolving domestic political 
problems. 

Money mystery 

The noxious cloud from the May 
money supply explosion continued to 
drift over the City yesterday, sending 
gilts down by as much as a point, 
money market rates up towards the 10 
percent base rate level and the pound, 
freed from the burden of impending 
base rate cuts, up -strongly. 

The sterling index rose 0-6 points to 
76.5, and the pound climbed above 
$ 1 .53. Not for the first time, domestic 
and external pressures on base rates 
puli in opposite directions. What does 
it all mean? There is no one explana- 
tion for the poor May figures, or those 
preceding them. The general argu- 
ments for tolerating high rates ol 
broad money growth were described 
in the Treasury's Economic Progress 
Report for June, published yesterday. 

The aim is to put some flesh on the 
arguments behind the Chancellor’s 
speech to the Lombard Association in 
April. The velocity of circulation of 
sterling M3, as measured by the 
relative growth rates of sterling M3 
and money gross domestic product, 
has been falling since 1980, by 2.75 
per cent a year, on average. The 
sharpest fall, of 5 per cent, was in 
1981. Last year, after allowance for the 
coal strike, it fell by 3.5 percent 

Falling velocity of circulation for 
broad money is explained by financial 
innovation, de-regulation, com- 
petition between banks and building 
societies and high real interest rates. It 
provides a justification for tolerating 
higher than otherwise rates of mone- 
tary growth. 

The difficulty with this argument is 
that it assumes that, in setting targets 
for broad money growth, the authori- 
ties have foiled to take full account of 
declining velocity. The II to 15 per 
cent target for sterling M3 of March 
came after six years of declining 
velocity and. presumably, included a 
further fall in velocity in its 
assumptions. 

Bui, in the First five months of this 
year, the 12-month rate of growth of 
sterling M3 has averaged 16.3 per 
cent. On the generous assumption ofa 
slowing in the second half of the year, 
perhaps as the commercial paper 
market comes into play, the rate of 
growth for 1986 as a whole is unlikely 
to be less than 1 5 per cent. 

Taking this in combination with the 
Treasury's own forecast for the 1986 
rise in money gross domestic product, 
of approximately 7.5 per cent for 
money GDP in calendar 1986 means 
that velocity has to fall by about 7.5 
per cent — the difference between 
sterling M3 and money GDP growth 
— for this broad money increase to be 
acceptable. This, which would exceed 
the 1981 fell, is stretching things. The 
old dilemma, about having excessive 
growth in broad money but not being 
able to do much about it, remains.

‘Today’ likely to get cash boost 


By Our City Staff 


An announcement is ex- 
pected this afternoon on foe 
future of Today, the loss- 
making tabloid colour news- 
paper which was launched by 
Mr Eddie Shah in March. 

The announcement, which 
follows a series of crisis meet- 
ings over foe past few days 
and a board meeting this 
•morning, is expected to reveal 
a further cash injection of up 
to £4 million from new or 
existing shareholders to shore 

up Today's finances. A man- 
agement reorganization 
givingMr Shah more direcl 

control of foe newspaper’s 
operations is also expected. 

' Mr Shah was unavailable 
for comment yesterday but his 
spokesman, Mr Robert 
Triefus, denied that the paper 
would be sold or slakes offered 
to newspaper groups such as 
Associated Newspapers. Mi 


Robert Maxwell's Mirfoi 
Group or Mr Kerry Packer's 
Australian Consoldiated 
Press. 

Mr Don Cruickshank. man- 
aging director of the Virgin 
Group, also denied reports 
that either Virgin or iu 
founder. Mr Richard Branson, 
would be involved. 

MrTreifus said: “A farther 
cash injection is being dis- 
cussed along with a change in 
the management structure. 
The aim is to ensure that foe 
paper is not living from day to 
day and that it has the funds ii 
needs without coming back 
for more on an emergency 
basis." 

Mr T riefus said that as far as 
he was aware “the existing 
investors are going to son out 
the situation themselves." 
The founding shaerhoJders in 
Today — mainly Trusfoouse 


Forte. British & Common- 
wealth and Ivory & Sime — 
have already pumped in £2.5 
million on top of their original 
investment to cover foe 
paper's recent cash flow crisis. 

A spokesman for Mr Max- 
well said Mr Shah had made 
an approach to print a new 
London afternoon newspaper 
which the Mirror group hopes 
to launch in September. How- 
ever. such a contract would 
only bring in extra income 
rather than provide fresh capi- 
tal for foe newspaper. 

Today has registered heavy 
losses since its launch, despite 
Mr Shah's hopes that its 
labour-saving technology 
could reap profits of up to £20 
million a year. Circulation of 
less than half the one million 
copies hoped for has hit cover 
price income and forced the 
paper to offer heavy discounts 


to advertisers. At foe same 
time about 100 extra staff 
have had to be taken on. 

However. Mr Triefus said 
foe-£i million a month losses 
that had been reported were 
“off the mark". 

• The Bond Corporation ha s 
signed a letter of intent with 
the Beijing Machinery & Elec- 
tricity Research Institute for a 
joint property development at 
a key site in foe Sun Li Tun 
area of Chaovang, mainland 
China. 

The deal will create a com- 
plex of offices and residential 
units aimed at meeting the 
increasing demand of interna- 
tional corporations looking tc 
develop business in China. 

The venture will also bring 
offshore currencies to foe 
People's Republic of China a; 
rentals will be payable in

Historic decision for 
Pilkington accounts 


Accounting changes almost 
always create contusion. 
They are also often viewed by 
a suspicious press as a way of 
larting up otherwise dull 
results. 

It is hard to accuse 
Pilkington Brothers of trying 
to put a gloss on thenombers. 
After SO years of replacement 
cost accounts, Pilkington will 
rejoin the rest of British 
induslzy.by returning to a 
historical cost basis. Conse- 
quently. the profit and loss 
account will no longer be- 
penalized by additional de- 
preciation charges, which last 
year amounted to £31 
million. 

By giving shareholders IS 
months’ notice of the change- 
over, the group hopes to 
avoid confusion. The results 
for the year to March 31, 
1986, announced yesterday, 
are on the old basis, but there 
is enough information to 
show many pf the ^effects of 
the new system. 

In the words of Antony 
Pilkington, the chairman, last 
year was untypical. Pretax 
profit on a replacement cost 
basis was £lu5.8 million, a 
drop of 9 per cent on the 
previous year. Had it not 
been for higher redundancy 
costs and adverse exchange 
rates, pretax profit would 
have improved by 10 per 
cent. 

In Britain^ flat glass, where 
Pilkington has 55 per cent of 
the market, safety glass and 
fibreglass insulation are bene- 
fiting from cost cutting and 
reorganization. Overseas, 
most areas outside Europe 
did well in local currency 
terms, especially Australia 
and Latin America. 

In 1986-87, profits' will 
benefit from lower redundan- 
cy costs, £1 i million com- 
pared with £21 million last 
year, and from the acquisi- 
tion of bTibey-Owens-FonTs 
glass interests in the US. This 
acquisition will make Pilk- 
ington America's second-big- 
gest supplier of safety glass 
and the biggest in the auto- 
motive ghss sector. 

Adjusting to a historical- . 
cost basis, pretax profit in 
1986-87 should approach 
£170 million. The tax charge 
is likely to remain high, 
pulling the shares on a pro- 
spective multiple of just over 
10 . 


Beyond this year, there will 
be the benefits of a lower tax 
charge as accumulated Brit- 
ish tax losses start to be 
utilized, and redundancy 
costs will be very much 
lower. On the historical cost 
basis, net assets per share are 
reduced by more than IOOp a 
share to around 400p, but the 
shares are attractive for the 
lodger term. 

Great Portland 

Great Portland Estates' year- 
end results and its promises 
of a future boost in net asset 
value suggests a “hands off” 
mood in a sector which is 
seeing, old-established invest- 
ment companies being ac- 
quired by more predatory 

traders. 

Great Portland, one of the 
-property sector's underrated 
blue chips, would be high on 
■ a bidder’s shopping list But it 
is more likely that Great 
Portland will make an acqui- 
sition. London & Provincial 
Sjhops is the market's 
favourite bat Great Portland 
wifi not be drawn other than 
to say that interesting an- 
nouncements are likely soon. 

The company's net asset 
value for the year ended 
March 31 was 2L5p, a 6.4 per 
cent rise. The property reval- 
uation showed an unexciting 
5 per cent rise to £355.19 
million. This takes no ac- 
count of trading properties or 
surpluses to come through on 
the development pro- 
gramme, which includes of- 
fices in the City and West 
End, retailing arid high tech- 
nology schemes. The Limco 
portfolio, bought for £12.9 
million, will provide further 
trading profits. 

Great Portland's holdings 
in the West End — from 
which it takes its name — 
could provide significant as- 
set growth. All hinges on 
whether proposed changes in 
planning law materialize. 
These would allow Great 
Portland to redevelop about 
30 per cent of its portfolio 
with valuable offices as op- 
posed to its present use as a 
home for the rag trade. 

The company predicts pre- 
tax profits of £20.5 million 
next year and a rental income 
of £24.5 million. It may 
return to the market for 
another debenture issue (hav- 


ing raised £25 million In 
April) to maintain the faster 
pace of its acquisition and 
development programme. 

The shares, stood at l8Sp 
showing a 1X2 per discount 
to net asset value. 

Christian Salvesen 


Christian Salvesen has come 
a long way since it gave up 
whaling in 1959. It has devel- 
oped a big cold food distribu- 
tion business for Marks and 
Spencer and other food retail- 
ers such as Sainsbury and 
Tesco. 

Its special skill is in storing 
and distributing chilled food 
to a network of shops from 
centra] warehouses, a busi- 
ness sufficiently capital inten- 
sive to deter new entrants. 

Last year's flotation has left 
the group's strategy of ex- 
panding in food distribution 
- and hiring out generating 
sets — intact. 

It has, however, had some 
important' side effects. The 
interest on the money put up 
by unsuccesfol applicants for 
shares which the company 
was able to invest for six days 
added £750.000 to profits last 
year, contributing to a 16 per 
cent rise in pretax profits to 
£38.8 million. 

The £21 million raised as 
pan of the flotation enabled 
Salvesen to bump up its 
capital spending from £34 
million to £55.7 million. 

The benefits of this expen- 
diture will not emerge fully in 
the curren t year, so profits are 
expected to rise by less than 
10 per cent to possibly £42 
million. 

Capital spending is expect- 
ed to remain at last year's 
level, implying that there will 
be a cash outflow of more 
than £20 million, assuming 
□o disposals. 

However, the company has 
received approaches for its 
housebuilding operation, 
which provides about 2,000 
units a year at an average 
price of £40.000. It looks as if 
the business might be worth 
as much as £60 million. 

The shares at 137p are 
trading on nearly 14 times 
prospective earnings - not 
unduly high for a company 
with a steady record and 
strong links with Marks and 
Spencer.

EEC backs 
capital 
market 
directive 

Brussels (AP-Dow Jones) — 
The European Commission 
has approved a draft directive 
liberalizing three types of fi- 
nancial transactions in the 
community in an attempt to 
hasten the development of a 
Unified European capital 
market 

But the proposal, which 
could mean significant re- 
forms for both France and 
Italy, must still be approved 
by community finance minis- 
ters before it can become 
community law. 

The ministers will discuss 
the proposal for the first time 
on Monday, but they are not 
expected to take any decision 
until the end of the year, a 
commission spokesman said. 

The proposed directive 
would make it possible for 
residents of one EEC country 
to take capital stakes in unlist- 
ed companies in another 
country, allow enterprises 
based in one member country 
to issue securities on other 
national capital markets and 
allow financial institutions 
throughout the EEC to issue 
commercial credits to non- 
residents for more than five 
years. ; 

Current European law does 
not require member states to 
guarantee free movement of 
capital in any of these areas. 
However, Britain, West Ger- 
many, the Netherlands, Den- 
mark. Belgium and 
Luxemburg already do. 

The directive, if adopted, 
would put pressure on other 
member states, notably 
France and Italy, to extend 
recent capital liberalization 
moves which since late last 
year have included the remov- 
al of certain foreign exchange 
restrictions. 

Spain, Portugal. Greece and 
Ireland may be allowed an 
exemption to the proposed 
legislation because of the rela- 
tively weak position of their 
economies, the spokesman 
said. 

The practical result of the 
proposed measures will be to 
encourage venture capital and 
create more opportunities for 
the. finance of trade and 
corporate, investment, the 
spokesman said. 

By making it possible for 
non-residents to invest in 
unlisted companies, the com- 
munity will encourage the 
growth of venture capital 
funds. 

Greater , use of long-term 
commercial credits will stimu- 
late trade in more expensive 
items like heavy equipment, 
and the removal of barriers to 
national capital markets will 
create more funding opportu- 
nities for corporations. 


Carless 
Capel 
in £34 m 
deal 

By Carol Ferguson 

Carless. Capet Sh Leonard is 
offering to buy The 
Wlnterbottom Energy Trust 
and some' North Americas oil 
and gas Interests la a cash 
raising exercise worth around 
£34 million. 

Car less has announced re- 
ceipt of irrevocable accep- 
tances in respect of 52.1 per 
cent of the voting shares in 
Wlnterbottom, including Lon- 
don Merchant Securities 
which controls 28 per cent. 

In the deal, announced yes- 
terday, Winter bottom share- 
holders are being offered new 
lOp Carless shares taken at a 
price of 6S.25p to the value of 
116 per cent of the 
Winter-bottom formula asset 
value. Winter-bottom's latest 
published estimate of its net 
asset value implies an FAV of 
114p per share. 

There is an underwritten 
cash alternative at a price of 
58p per Carless share, which 
will give each WJnterbottom 
shareholder 985 per cent of 
the formula asset value. 
Winterbottom's shares are 
currently I06p. Carless' share 
price fell 9p to 6lp 

In the combined deal. 
Carless is offering to buy 
London Merchant Securities" 
US oil and gas interests for 
£7.7 million, to be satisfied by- 
way of loan stock of £5 million 
and the balance in shares. 

In consideration of the 
transaction. Carless, which 
has 77 million shares in issue, 
will be issuing around 50 
million new shares. LMS will 
have approximately 15 per 
cent of the enlarged share 
capital. 

Winter-bottom is a specialist 
oil investment trust whh very 
few unlisted securities. It wfll 
therefore be readily realisable 
and the proceeds of the sale of 
the portfolio will be nsed to 
reduce Carless' debt, nowover 
90 per cent, to around 35 per 
cent 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


Shares fall as demand for 
extra cash worries dealers 


The underwriters were suf- 
fering from a severe bout of 
indigestion yesterday as the 
demand for extra funds from 
companies continued to put 
their liquidity under pressure. 

Cazenove. the broker, strug- 
gled with the underwriting for 
Dixons' increased offer for 
Woofworths. It was not until 
after hours that the task was 
finally completed. Last night. 
Cazenove was reported to - be

Shares of Ben tails, the depart- 
ment stores group, which hit 
208p after the tentative bid 
approach from Capital &

treated to 158p and are look- 
ing interesting. A television 
programme this weekend is 
expected to highlight the 
growing rift between the coor

asset-rich company which is 
soon to redevelop its Kingston 
site. 


buying stock in the market as 
the price of Wool worths 
dipped 40p to 785p. That 
compares with Dixons' cash 
alternative of S05p. Dixons 
lost !6pai 332p. 

Dealers also expect the un- 
derwriters to be left with the 
bulk of Peninsular and 
Oriental's new shares follow- 
ing its recent agreed bid for the 
Stock Conversion property 
group. The result of the bid is 
expected later today, but the 
recent slide in the equity 
market means that P & O's 
cash alternative of 720p — and 
underwritten at 540p — is 
looking infinitely more 
attractive. 

Of the 70 million shares 
issued by P & O to pay for the 
deal more than half are 
expected to be left with the’ 
underwriters. Market men are 
now worried that the big 


institutions may soon be 
forced to start liquidating part 
of their portfolios to meet 
their underwriting 

commitments. 

However, there was no sign 
of the feared selling yesterday, 
although share prices were still 
in ragged retreat in the wake of 
Tuesday's shock money sup- 
ply figures which effectively 
scuppered hopes of an early 
cut in hank base rales. 

Market-makers were quick 
to treat share prices to another 
savage mark-down first thing 
despite the strong finish over- 
night on Wall Street. But the 
absence of sellers enabled 
prices to close off the bottom. 

The FT Index of 30 shares, 
down 22.0 by mid-morning, 
eventually dosed 1 3-3 lower at 
1 501 . 1 . The wider spread FT- 
SE 100 dipped 1 5.0 to 1.571.4. 

Gilts which had been pin- 
ning their hopes on a half- 
point cut to 9V? per cent in 
interest rates continued to 
encounter persistent selling. 
Prices at the longer end of the 
market were down by about 
£1'* by the close, bringing 
total lobes this week to more 
than £3.

Loss be-

l 36.17p 


The Groups pre-tax profit of £ 105.8m is very 
much in line with expectations for this untypical year. 

The reduction of £10.2m (9%) over 1984-85 is 
due primarily to the accelerated redundancy 
programme, which has cost £2Llm (£11.5m higher 
than last year), and the negative effect of foreign 
currency translations which have reduced the pre-tax 
profits by £ 10.9m compared with the previous year. 
Without these two factors, the year as a whole would 
have shown an improvement of £ 12.0m (10%). 

The second interim dividend has been increased 
by lp to 85p per share - a total for the year of 135p. 

UNTIED KINGDOM IMPROVEMENT 

The steady improvement in our United 
Kingdom trading operations before redundancy has 
been maintained with profits at £ 15 .4 m - up 13% on 
1984-85. 

Our cote United Kingdom businesses of flat 
glass, safety 7 glass, and glass fibre insulation are 
benefiting from improvements in their cost structures 
and in each case the market demand is now better 
matched to their manufacturing capacity. 

Pilkington Insulation Limited has had a much 
improved year, with a strong return to profitability 
before exceptional redundancy costs. 

Electro-Optical division had a mixed year- Both 
Barr& Stroud and Pilkington PE have improved their 
trading performance. This has been somewhat offset 
by poor results in some small new venture companies 
attached to the division. 

Ophthalmic division continues to make good 
progress, with excellent results from Sola- 

Capital expenditure in the United Kingdom 
amounted to £34.9m, nearly 90% of which was 
related to expenditure on existing assets. 

OVERSEAS PERFORMS WELL 

The overseas investments of che Group Have 
continued to perform well, the shortfall in trading 
profits of £8.9m over the last year being almost 
entirely due to exchange rate effects on year-end 
translation. 

Fkchglas AG has held its own in a difficult 
environment, and Pilkington Floatglas AB in Sweden 
has had a much better year. 


Very good performances have been achieved in 
Australia, South Africa, and Argentina, with Brazil 
and New' Zealand good but somewhat below’ last 
year's excellent results. 

Capital expenditure amounted to £ 136.8m, of 
which £52.1m was related to the upgrading of existing 
assets and £84.7m to acquisitions. 

Libbey-Owens-Ford accounts for almost all of 
our share of profits from related companies. 

PROSPECTS 

Gwen a satisfactory year for the world economy, 
we expect an improvement in the Group's trading 
overall, with the United Kingdoms profitability 
benefiting from further gains in productivity.

■urging the Government to 
ease restrictions on rented

The call came- yesterday 
from Mr David Nickson, new 
president of the Confedera-

annual dinner of the

gion. He said: “We are getting

“f know he’s trying to tell me something: 
but what does he really mean?" In our world 
of proliferating technologies and new termi- 
nology, this kind of question is asked a lot 
Here is what we are doing about it. 


Hitachi's scientists and technicians' long- 
term goal is to break the language barrier. 
They are diligently at work today on an array 
of projects that will vastly improve the com- 
munications of tomorrow. 

For example, we've made tremendous 
progress on a system to translate Japanese 
into English. 

This system can be used to translate 
various scientific/technical papers and 
machinery/equipment manuals. Special 
"glossaries" can be developed to adapt it for 
fields as diverse as medicine, electronics 
and'aeronautics. Further devefopmentcould 
lead to automatic telephone translation or 
even portable verba/ translators for travelers. 

In addition to the machine Jransia- . 
tion system, Hitachi's research specialists 
are also developing advanced transmission 
systems that send your phone calls or 
business data across great distances using 
hair-thin optical fibers and laser beams. 

They are also working on other new methods 
of communications, such as advanced 
telephone exchange systems, satellite com- 
munication systems, TV conferences, 
and so forth. 

At the root of much of this is our highly 
advanced computer technology: because 
Hitachi is producing some of the fastest, 
largest-capacity systems available today.

We link technology to human needs. We 
believe that Hitachi’s advanced technologies 
will result in systems and products that are

reform 


. By Judith Huntley 

The Government's prom- 
ised reform of . the rating 
system in England and- Wales 
is expected to be delayed 
indefinitely or at least until 
after the next general election.' 

But the revaluation of com- 
mercial pi u pei ty scheduled 
for 1990 is likely to go ahead, 
and it will remove the inequi- 
ties which have built up in the 
system since the last revalua- 
tion in 1973. 

Mr Nicholas Ridley, the 
Secretary of State for the 
Environment, has said that 
there will be no legislation on, 
commercial rates reform be- 
fore the genera] election al- 
though the Government 
intends to introduce a Bill to 
alter Scotland's domestic; 
rates. 

But the indications are that 
a revaluation in England and 
Wales — Scotland has already 
had one*—' win move ahead for' 
completion in 1990. The lit-, 
land Revenue, is charged with 
the task of revaluing the 
nation's commercial property 
base; and some of its some of 
its offices, such as the City of 
London, already have plans to 
take on the mammoth task. ■ 
The question of how best to 
reform property taxes is one 
which no Government has yet 
been brave enough to face. 


‘Many occupiers 
assessed on an 
artificial basis’ 


The existing system has its 
drawbacks, but it is simple, 
collection is cheap and there 
are few defaulters. 

The Government had in- 
tended to introduce a uniform 
rate in the pound for the whole 
of England and Wales but that 
' is now in abeyance, at least for 
the time being. 

The revaluation of the com- 
mercial rate base, however, 
would recognize the changing 
fortunes of Britain's economy 
of which the property sector is 
a reflection. 

Hard hit areas of industrial 
Britain, for example, could see 
a reduction in the saleable 
value of their commercial 



Nicholas Ridley: Scottish 
rates Bill planned 

buildings while booming loca- 
tions such as the City of 
London fringes and southern 
England would see a hefty 
increase. 

; Mr Peter Evans, bead of 
research at Debenham 
Tewson & Grinnocks, the 
firm of chartered surveyors, 
-said: “Regardless of whether 
or not the Government re- 
forms commercial rates, there 
has to be a revaluation to try 
and bring the tax base to a 
fairer form than it is at 
present. 

“It is inequitable to many 
occupiers who are assessed on. 
a totally artificial and wroa£ 
basis. We cannot go on indefi- 
nitely with a tax which is 
incorrectly based. Revalua- 
tion should be at the root of 
reform.’’ 

Debenham Tewson & 
Ch innocks has just completed 
a survey of office rents and 
rates in 40 British cities. Its 
findings are that, in the centres 
surveyed, office rents are ris- 
ing-raster than rates for the 
first time since 1978. 

The average rental rise in 
the past year has been 6 per 
cent while the rale increase in 
that period was a mere 1 per . 
cent. Bin the average disguises 
a huge discrepancy between 
areas. 

In the capital rales bills 
have fallen by 4 J per cent this 
year with the London Borough 
of Kensington and Chelsea 
seeing a 25 per cent reduction, 
the largest in London. 

Ratecapping had much to 
do with this. Rates in the five

ratecapped London boroughs 
have fkllen by 6 percent in the 
past two years compared with 
a 30 per cent increase in the 
previous two years. 

But .in half the English 
provincial centres surveyed, 
rates outstripped inflation by 
300 per cent. Office ratepayers 
in Leicester faced a 30 per cent 
rise with Bradford, Sheffield 
and Leeds having a 20 per cent 
increase in the last year. 

■ On the subject of a commer- 
cial revaluation, Debenham 
Tewson says that a shift in 
values based on current rents 
means that areas such as 
Windsor, Slough, Reading 
and Basingstoke face rises in 
rate bills of more than 20 per 
cent On the other hand, some 
of the inner London boroughs 
will see a substantial reduction 
in value. 

Mr John Moore, the firm’s 
City agency partner, considers 
that rates will no longer carry 
the sale weight this year as 
they have in the past on 
location decisions. 

He says: “Ratecapping in 
London has helped, but the 
pressure of demand for mod- . 
era technology-conscious of- 
fice space has been the major 
force that has lowered tenants’ 
sensitivity to rates. Rates were 
a major issue in a period of 
oveisuppiy, when tenants had 
a wide selection of available 

Office rents are

than rates 

buildings, but now the con- 
cern has returned to building 
quality and location.*’ 

However, there must be 
some doubts over the impact 
an increase in rales will have 
on the prospects for rental 
growth. In areas where de- 
mand is not at the fever pilch 
seen in the City ahead of big 
bang, an increase in rateable 
value could well depress rents. 

If big bang turns into a 
whimper and there is an 
oversupply of space in the 
City and its fringes, rates still 
again become an important 
bargaining point in deciding 
rent levels and location in a 
tenants’ market. 



An architect's impression of the luxury apartments Barrett will build at Brighton marina 

Barratt to develop flOOm 
housing scheme at marina 


Barratt Developments, the 
volume housebuilder, will de- 
velop the £100 million resi- 
dential element of Brent 
Walker Group’s Brighton Ma- 
rina scheme. 

It will build 750 homes 
costing between £85,000 and 
£230,000 each. 

The development will cost 
Barratt £70 million to build 
and it will pay Brent Walker 
£17.5' million for the land 
from its sales. 

Profits will be shared be- 
tween the two over and above 
Barrett's profits marein which 
Sir Lawrie Barratt, the house- 
builder's chairman, says will 
be 10 per cent before tax. 

The housing will take eight 
years to develop. There will be 
100 houses and 650 flats in the 
development, with 500 berths 


in the marina offered to 
prospective purchasers. 

Barratt will offer a range of 
incentives to buyers, including 
its established practice of buy- 
ing purchasers' old homes to 
facilitate sales. 

Brent Walker win operate 
the £22 million leisure ele- 
ment of the marina, including 
a 450-bed hotel, the purpose- 
built health hydro, the sports 
facilities and Britain's first 
indoor water theme park. 

The Dee Corporation has 
agreed to pay £10 million fora 
lease from Brent Walker for a 

75.000 sq ft Carrefour super- 
store. In addition, there will be 

50.000 sq ft of retailing in a 
new village square and anoth- 
er 50,000 sq ft associated with 
the marina and leisure facili- 
ties. 

Brent Walker bought Brigh- 


ton Marina from the Brighton 
Corporation at the end of 1 985 
for £13 million. 

Its leasehold interest was 
valued in February this year at 
£28.5 million, including the 
Dee Corporation’s contribu- 
tion, compared with a book 
value of £15.4 million. 

Marina developments are in 
favour at the moment The 
Associated British Ports 
scheme with Shearwater Prop- 
erty Holdings, part of the 
Rosehaugh group, at South- 
ampton has attracted a £12 
million investment from the 
Dean & Dybal! Group which 
will provide 300 berths. 

And at Gloucester Docks, 
Pearce Developments and the 
British Waterways Board will 
develop a marina with retail 
and leisure farilites in a £30 
million project 


CBI condemns 
Lords ‘curbs’ 
on competition 

By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


The House of Lords amend- 
ments to the Sex Discrimina- 
tion Bill, which starts its 
Committee stage in the Com- 
mons today, have been con- 
demned by industry leaders as 
posing a threat to efforts by 
companies to increase 
competitiveness. 

The Confederation of Brit- 
ish Industry has urged the 
Government to oppose the 
amendments which, Mr 
Kenneth Edwards, the deputy 
director-general, said were 
“totally at odds with the 
Government’s deregulation 
exercise which has our full 
support'* 

The CBI says the amend- 
ments would delay the repeal 
of restrictions on women’s 
hours of work and endanger 
cooperation by bolstering un- 
fair dismissal rights for em- 
ployees who refused to change 
their working hours. 

They would also impose on 
employers a new statutory 
duty to consider the health, 
safety and welfare interests of 


their employees where a sub- 
stantial change in working 
hours was contemplated- 

Mr Edwards said in a letter 
to Mr Kenneth Darke, the 
Employment Minister “The 
amendments pose a very real 
threat to the efficiency and 
competitiveness of industry 
and we strongly tnge that they 
be deleted. ” 

Existing legal protection for 
employees is regarded by the 
CBI as “wholly adequate.” 
The third amendments would 
impose a range ofbureaucratic 
duties on employers which in 
some cases would be impossi- 
ble to carry oul It would apply 
to men and women and could 
delay the emogence of new 
working practices, according 
to the CBl. 

Mr Edwards said: “Most 
employers already take into 
account, and wherever reason- 
ably practicable, accommo- 
date the needs and wishes of 
their employees (while) intro- 
ducing significant c h an g es in 
working arrangements.” 


Wight Collins in 
£32m US buy 


By Cliff Fettham 


The advertising agency 
Wight Collins Rutherford 
Scott is taking a big leap into 
the American market with the 
£32 million acquisition of 
HBM Creamer, which is rated 
the 25th largest agency and the 
!5lh biggest public relations 
consultancy in the US. 

The deal, which is being 
funded through a cash call to 
shareholders, comes soon af- 
ter WCRS took over the 
London advertising agency 
FCO, which has billings of 
around £20 million. 

Until now, WCRS has been 
the only agency within the UK 
top 20 without any direct links 
in the United States. HBM 
Creamer, which is rated along- 
side agencies such as Ted 
Bates and McCann Erickson, 
employs 770 people of whom 
1 15 are in the public relations 


offshoot, CDB. Its 
billings have gone up 
$290 million (£191 million) in 
l984io $310 million. 

WCRS says that medium- 
sized agencies of its kind 
should benefit from the spate 
of so-called mega-bids where 
it can offer creativity and 
client service instead of sheer 
size. 

Profits before tax for the 
year just ended are estimated 
to be not less than £2.6 
.million. The dividend payout 
is expected to total 4.25p a 
share, compared with 2.75p. 

The directors of WCRS say 
they are confident that the 
group will continue to grow 
and say the current rate of 
success in developing new 
business demonstrates the vi- 
tality of the consumer agency.

We’d like to get 
on first name terms ♦ 


P iLEASE DON’T THINK we’re advocating any 
unseemly informality. Far from it 
We merely wish to become the first name that 
springs to mind when you're considering anything 
to do with offices, shops, or industrial and high- 
technology buildings. 

• Anything, did we say? Yes, more or less. 

We're aware thaft rather a large claim. 

However, we are rather a large practice. (We’ve 
eighty-five partners and associates, and over five 
hundred staff in the UK alone.) 

And we didn’t get big by turning down small jobs. 

In the past year; for example, we’ve handled in- 
structions on units ranging in size from 400 square 
feet up. Admittedly, the largest is over 13 million 
square feet, and ift true that much of our work is 
extremely large. 

As a matter of fact we think our size adds 
perspective to our experience and skills. 

Big can be beautiful too, you know. 

We’d like to put our skills at your service. And, to ^ 
begin, with, we invite you to have a copy of our 
personal directory. 

It will guide you to the person you need. 

Of course who you need depends on what you 
want So left run through what we do. 

Our investment people handle buying and selling, 
and the funding of property development 

Our agency teams cover developing, letting and 
acquiring, as well as rent reviews and lease renewals. 

Our valuations group can tell you what your 
property^ worth. 

And in these days oPintelligent buildings' you need 
highly intelligent advice on management, mainten- 
ance, and the improvement of property 
Whaft more our databank is one of the largest 
sources of commercial property information; which is 
one reason we act as consultants to so many clients.

THE 



TIMES 


GENERAL APPOINTMENTS 


T here is nothing new 
about a profession which 
specializes in the man- 
agement of information. 

. The advertisements in 
tiiis section- of The Times seeking 
IT consultants are so narrowly 
targeted that they are missing a 
great pool of expertise which has 
apparently escaped the notice of 
those who write the copy. ' 

There has been an information 
profession for centuries — even 
millennia. Whoever first placed 
the day tablets of Nineveh into 
some kind of order, so that it 
would be easier to trace the 
information they contained, was. 
the first information manager. 
The skills of acquiring, classifying 
and controlling the flow of infor- 
mation into and out of a data bank 
have been refined and adjusted.as - 
new methods appeared, bat the 
technique is the same now as it has 
always been. 

Thar technique now requires 
some knowledge of-the workings 
of computers, it does not requires 
knowledge of programming (al- 
though that can be an added 
advantage) nor does it require a 
high level of mathematical ability. 
The key to the organization of 
information lies rather with the 


ability to think logically, arid to 
arrange information in an order 
which will relate like material with 
like and lead the inquirer naturally 
on to other relevant items. Sys- 
tems for creating such indexes 
were known to the real informa- 
tion profession long before words 
such as “relational databases” and 
“thesauri" were bandied about, 
and certainly long before “Bool- 
ean search*’ became a familiar 
piece of jargon. 

The people who were — and are 
— a part of that profession are 
librarians and information man- 
agers. They work in afl types of - 
information facility, from the 
great -national libraries to the 
smallest “one-man band" operat- 
ing from a room in the basement, 
surrounded by files. 

' There 1 are no limits to their 
ability to -find out what you, the 
inquirer, need to know, other than 
those imposed by cost and time. 
They are- part of a graduate 
profession, highly skilled m the 
practical aspects of their work, as 
well as academically qualified. 
Before the advent of the machine- 
type computer, the librarian was a 
human computer, and the net- 
works set up throughout the world 
by such people were second to 





The ability to handle 
information should 
have a place in 
any management 
training course, says 
Feona J. Hamilton 


none as a means of obtaining the 
information requested qui ckly 
and efficiently. 

The profession is now faced 
with the prospect of a takeover bid 
by the computer community. 
Terms such as “information 
Centre" and . "information 
manager", as well as “IT 
consultant" are used by the com- 
puter companies, such as IBM, to 
denote their own peculiar furns 
lions. They have been used for 
many years by the information 
profession to explain precisely 
what die words implied. 

An information centre is a 


central point at which information 
in many formats is collected, 
arranged and made available to 
others; an information manager is 
the person who controls and co- 
ordinates all these functions; and 
an IT consultant is someone who 
has the expertise to use the latest 
technological developments to ad- 
vise on and implement the best 
methods of managing 
information. 

The emphasis is always firmly 
on the handling of information, 
and the skills and intellectual 
ability to do so. The library and 
information profession has thou- 


sands of practitioners in its ranks 
with just those abilities. 

Many of them belong to profes- 
sional institutions — the Library 
Association, the Association of 
Information Management, the In- 
"sriiuTc of Information Scientists. ' 

These bodies, all well respected. 

- award-recognized qualifications, 
monitor, education and training 
courses in the universities and 
poly technics throughout the coun- 
try. run short courses to enable 
those already qualified to keep in 
touch with the rapid changes 
taking place in the methodology 
and techniques of the profession, 
hold annual conferences, and 
forge links with their counterparts 
overseas. 

As well as those working full- 
time for an employer, there is a 
growing band of freelance infor- 
mation consultants. Some man- 
agement consultancies have 
realized their importance, and 
hastened to add them to their 
registers of external consultants. 
Many other consultancy firms 
have failed to see the relevance 
and importance of these experts, 
and persist in advertising for 
consultants who are chartered 
accountants, or DP managers, or 


27 


experienced in all manner of 
engineering The emphasis is all 
on subject knowledge, not on the 
organization of the information 
concerning the subject. That em- 
phasis is mistaken. 

■ ‘ For more than 100 years Brit- 
ain has been acknowledged as a 
• world leader -in information man- 
agement. The United States is one 
of the few countries where a 
similar level of excellence pre- 
vails. and the information consul- 
tants in that country form a large 
and thriving industry. 

T hings are a little slower 
to get off the ground in 
this country, as usual, 
but I am convinced that 
the same kind of exper- 
tise is needed here. Information 
management is of increasing im- 
portance as office automation - 
increases’ and the ability to access 
information from the individual’s 
desk becomes commonplace. 

The chief executive needs to 
have those skills as much as the 
head of information services. A 
good information consultant can 
advise and teach the skills of 
information handling at all levels 
of management. He or she can 


June 12, 1986 


design an information centre front’ 
the ground up: automate an I 
existing system: co-ordinate office* 
automation and information; 
management via networking; ad-* 
vise on staffing and training and; 
undertake the training pro-* 
gramme; and above alL an in for-; 
maiion consultant knows where to • 
-find- out and whom to contact.; 
Such skills, such expertise are not* 
to be ignored. - ■ ■ ' ; 

Many of the articles appearing; 
in this space have emphasized the* 
need to alter the perspectives oC 
management education. Although*, 
mention is made of the impor-; 
lance of information to the man-- 
ager, no mention is ever made ot; 
the importance of the information * 
profession, or the contribution-; 
which could be made to manage-, 
mem education by its members. 

How to access information; 
should be an essential pan of any ' 
coursepurponing to provide edu-T 
cation and training in manager 
mem skills. It is a low priority or; 
missing entirely from many' 
courses, but it is a risk which can — “ 
and should — be swiftly remedied.: 

Feona J. Hamilton is an in forma

-For the purpose of calculat- 
ing the amount of any benefit 
under these regulations which is 
or will become payable to or in 
respect of a pensionable em- 
ployee who bas served as a pan-

reduced period." 

Regulation D21(ll provides: 

-For the purpose of calculat- 
ing the amount of any benefit 
under these regulations which is 
or will become payable to or in 
respect of a pensionable em- 
ployee, no account shall be 
taken of any period of his 
reckonable service by which that 


redeemable service for the pur- 
pose of a retirement pension 
claim, subject to the appropriate 
reduction under regulation DI7. 

The respondent's part-time 
service, having been treated as 
whole time fora proportionately 
reduced period, meant that he 
had undergone reckonable ser- 
vice for less than 40 years when 
he attained the age of 60 years. 

Regulation DJ7 was applied, 
thus proportionately reducing 
the period of part-time service 
to arrive at the whole-time 
service equivalent. 

By virtue of the interpretation 
clause, the secretary of state had 
correctly regarded employment 
during tiie second period with 
the council as constituting 
concurrent whole-time employ- 
ment. 

In determining the proper 
period of whole-time service 
undeT regulation D17 the sec- 
retary of state was correct to take 
the ratio of the respondent’s 
salary of his pan-time employ- 
ment with the water authority to 
that of his deemed whole-time 
employment with the counciL 

Turning to the main issue, 
which involved the construction 
of regulation D2l(l). it was 


agreed that the essential purpose

period of reckonable service 
which was taken into account in 
the calculation of a retirement 
pension; and . . . exceeds 45 
years, disregarding reckonable 
service before attaining the age 
of 60 years beyond a total of 40 
years.” 

Mr Matthew Horton for the 
water authority. Mr Nigel 
Planing for the Secretary of 
State for the Environment; Mr 
Gilbert Edward Cross in person. 

MR JUSTICE SIMON 
BROWN said that between May 
21, 1932 and January 31. 1957 
the respondent, Mr Cross, was 
employed by various local 
authorities (the first period); 
from February 1, 1957 to March 
31, 1974 he was employed 
concurrently as a whole-time 
employee by the former 
Godaiming Borough Council 
and as a pan-time employee by 
the former West Surrey Water 
Board (the second period); from 
April 1, 1974io May 20. 1979 he 
was employed by the Thames 
Water Authority and was in that 
employment a pensionable em- 
ployee within the meaning of 
the 1974 Regulations (the third 
period). 

On ceasing employment with 
the council the respondent be- 
came entitled to a retirement 
pension and retiring allowance, 
in the calculation of which 40 
years’ reckonable service were 
taken into account. 

On ceasing his employment 
with the Thames Water Author- 
ity the respondent became en- 
titled, in relation to that 
employment, to a retirement 
pension and retiring allowance. 

On March 18, 1981 the sec- 
retary of state determined that 
the respondent was. in relation 
to his employment with the 
Thames Water Authority, en- 
titled to reckon as reckonable 
service the whole of bis service 
from May 21, 1 932 to March 31, 
1974 inclusive (both the first 
and second periods) but that the 
third period was part-time - 
The first period began with 
the respondent's eighteenth 
birthday and the third and final 


period expired on the evening of 
' .’-fifth birthday.

his sixty- 

The appellants were the new 
administering authority for the 
superannuation fond. 

Disposing first of two minor 
questions: by the secretary of 
State's final and unappealable 
derision of March IS, 1981, the 
second period when he was 
working pan-time for the water 
authority was to be included as 


provision was to prevent 
more than 45 years being 
brought into account into the 
calculation and payment of 
retirement pension. 

Some adaptation of the lan- 
guage of regulation D21(l) was 
required even to secure that 
effect. Essentially the provision 
might be paraphrased: No ac- 
count should be taken of such 
pan of reckonable service 
attributable to pension X as 
together with the period of 
reckonable service taken into 
account with regard to pension 
Y exceeded 45 years. 

That did oot resolve the point 
raised. The secretary of state 
asserted that the regulation 
could onlv have effect to limit 
the period of reckonable service 
for the instant pension when 
sequential and not concurrent 
periods of employment were in 
question. 

On behalf of the water author- 
ity it was submitted that there 
was nothing in the language of 
the regulations which confined 
its effect to sequential employ- 
ment. 

The secretary of state's judg- 
ment was to be preferred. The 
overriding reason was that if the 
water authority's interpretation 
was right, then its effect in the 
instant case might be as follows: 

Because the period of 
reckonable service taken into 
account in the calculation of the 
respondent’s pension arising out 
of local authority employment 
was 40 years, that left available 
to him for the purposes of 
reckonable service attributable 
to lhe water authority pension 
only the balance of five years. 

Five years was short of even 
the third and final period of 
employment when be worked 
exclusively for the water author- 
ity. 

The respondent did not ob- 
tain the benefit of full-time work 
exclusively for the water author- 
ity and obtained no benefit from 
his concurrent part-time water 
board work for 17 years and he 
obtained no benefit from the 
first period of work of over 24 
years which, pursuant lo the 
secretary of state's final and 
unappealable derision, he was 
held entitled to include as 
reckonable service in respect to 
retirement pension payable 
from the water authority 
superannuation fund. 

Throughout the second pe- 
riod the respondent had paid the 
relevant proportion of water 
board remuneration exclusively 
into foe fond from which, foe 
pension was paid. 

Part of his contributions dur- 
ing he first period went into the 
water authority's superannua- 
tion fund If the water 
authority's construction was 
correct, he received no benefit 
with respect to any of those 
payments. 

Accordingly regulation D21 
did indeed apply only where 
sequential and not concurrent 
periods of service had been 
worked. To construe it other- 
wise would promote manifest 
unfairness and would not pro- 
mote foe purpose of the regula- 
tions.

Aslam y Singb 

Before Lord Justice Mustill and 
Lord Justice Stocker 
[Judgment given June 6] 

Where a defendant applied 
for a committal order, made in 
his absence, io be set aside, and 
foe judge accepted his explana- 
tion for his absence, the whole 
matter should be reheard and 
the judge should not simply 
reopen the case to hear foe 
defendant's evidence. 

The Court of Appeal so held, 
setting aside an order commit- 
ting foe defendant, Davinder 
Singh, to prison for an alleged 
breach of an injunction not to 
assault foe plaintiff. Jennifer 
Aslam. which had been made in 
foe defendant’s absence by 
Judge Pickles on June 2. 1986, 
and which he had refused to set 
aside on the defendant’s 
application on June 3, 1986. 

Mrs Jane Led sard for the 
defendant; Miss Margaret 
McCabe for foe plaintiff. 

LORD JUSTICE MUSTILL 
said that the plaintiff, having 
initiated proceedings for dam- 
ages for assault against the 
defendant, obtained an injunc- 
tion restraining him from 
assaulting her until trial or 
further order. 

She subsequently issued a 
notice alleging that foe defen- 
dant had breached that injunc- 
tion and requiring him to show 
cause why he should not be 
committed. 

When, on June 2, foe matter 
came before the judge, foe 
defondant did not appear at foe 
hearing. Unknown to his legal 
representatives, he had on May 
31 been arrested and placed in 
custody in connection with 
another matter. 


The judge, unaware of that, 
proceeded to hear Ihe plaintiffs 
case, calling evidence from her 
and from another -witness. 

In foe absence of instructions, 
counsel for foe defendant was 
unable to cross-examine. At foe 
end of foe hearing foe judge 
made an order committing the 
defendant lo prison for 28 days. 

On June 3, foe defendant was 
released, and that afternoon, 
represented by different coun- 
sel, applied to foe judge for foe 
previous order lo be set aside. 
Thejudge. having confirmed foe 
defendant's explanation for his 
absence foe previous day, then 
proceeded to reopen foe case. 

Neither the defendant nor his 
counsel realized that in addition 
to the plaintiff, evidence had 
been taken from an independent 
witness. When that emerged 
incidentally, the judge invited 
counsel to comment on h but 
refused an application for an 
opportunity to cross-examine 
foe witness. 

The judge then concluded 
that the committal order of the 
previous day should stand. 

No complaint was made 
about foal order of June 2. But 
foe judge clearly erred on the 
following day when he refused 
to carry out a foil rehearing. As a 
result foe evidence proceeded in 
unequal pans. In his Lordship's 
opinion, foe judge acted too 
hastily. 

The judge's order would 
therefore be set aside, Ihe defen- 
dam released and foe whole 
matter should be reheard as 
soon as possible. 

Lord Justice Stocker agreed.

RACING: NEWBURY DOUBLE FOR IN-FORM STQUTE STABLE WITH ONLY TWO RUNNERS 


Mandub taken 
to conf ir m 
the promise of 
debut win 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 


Now that the first four 
classics of the season are 
behind us, greater attention 
will be paid to the two-year- 
olds to see which of the new 
generation could turn out to 
be the stars of tomorrow. So 
the Massey Euro power Two- 
Year-Old Trophy will gener- 
ate considerable interest at 
Beverley this afternoon. I go 
nap on Mandub to remain 
unbeaten at the expense of 
Alkadi and Glencroft. n 

Hairy Thomson Jones' 
American-bred colt, who stiU 
holds engagements at Royal 
Ascot next week, made a deep 
impression on those who saw 
him win the firet time he set 
foot on a racecourse ' at 
Goodwood last month. 

As he started favourite at 
even money that day, it was 
obvious that he had shown at 
home that he had inherited 
plenty of speed from bis sire. 
Topsider, who is renowned in 
the United States as being a 
fast influence. Id the race 
itself, Mandub was always in 
control and moving easily. 
Today I expect him to prove 
too good for the more experi- 
enced Alkadi. 

After Glencroft had beaten 
Wiganthorpe a bead at New- 
castle, his trainer, David 
Chapman, went on record as 
saying that the latter's connec- 
tions should not be down- 
hearted because he regards 
Glencroft as the most exciting 
prospect that he has had in his 
yard since Soha. And that is 
praise indeed. 

When all is said and done, 
though, I wfll be surprised if 
Glencroft manages to give 21b 
to a horse of Mandub’s poten- 
tial. 

Queen's Soldier is taken to 
give Willie Ryan another win- 
ning ride in the Watt Memori- 
al EBF Stakes. Apparently he 
has been going a treat in his 
recent homework and he is 
preferred to Range Rover and 
Badarbak. 

At Newbury I envisage Five 
Farthings (3.0) and Shibil 


Benguela, Jeremy Tree's 
newcomer in the small but 
select field for the Kingsdere 
Stakes, is closely related to 
some fast horses, notably Al 
Maymoon. In this instance, 
though. I prefer Indian Lily, 
who was backed to win her 
first race at Sandown as if 
defeat was out of the question. 
She duty obliged and, like her 
sire, Indian King, she finished 
that day as if she would be 
even better suited to today’s 
slightly longer distance.

(4.0) continuing Michael 
Stoute’s excellent run. Consid- 
ering that she looked in need 
of an outing. Five Farthings 
did not run at all badly at 
York last month in the race 
won by Bold Rex. Now I take 
her to beat the same horse in 
the Coopers and Lybrand 
Summer Stakes on 91b better 


terms. 

If ibe form of the Italian 


Derby means anything at all, 
Shibil ought to be capable of 


losing his maiden's tag in the 
Childrey Stakes. My selection 
finished third in Rome, only 
two lengths behind the win- 
ner, Tommy Way. Before that, 
he ran well enough behind 
Verd-Antique at Newmarket 
to suggest that a prize like 
today's should certainly come 
his way. 

With the Royal Hunt Cup 
in mind, my binoculars will be 
focused on Pktograph in the 
Cork Guriy Apprentice 
Handicap. Success this after- 
noon will not entail a penalty 
for Ian Balding's useful four- 
year-old in the Ascot cavalry 
charge. 

Following that encouraging 
run behind Albasar at New- 
market, Brave Dancer should 
be hard to beat in the EBF 
Kennett Maiden Stakes, espe- 
cially as he has a high draw 
which is normally preferable 
on the straight course at 
Newbury. Brave Dancer 
looked as though he would 
tighten as a result of that first 
race.

Cramp fined by 
Jockey Club 


Swinburn excels with treble 


Waller Swinburn was in spar- 
kling form at Newbury yes- 
today, completing a 139-1 
treble on Conquering Hero, 
Lavender Mist and Newsells 
Park. In contrast, Steve Cantheu 
had one of his most frustrating 
days, finishing second on every 
one of his five rides. 

Conquering Hero and Lav- 
ender Mist were Michael 
Sroute's only runners at 
NewWy today. Both wore 
appearing for the first time this 
season and confirmed that the 
stable is reaching peak form in 
time for Royal Ascot next week , 
when Stonte will hare at least a 
dozen runners. 

Conquering Hero, a three- 
year-old taking on older horses 
on utfavoorahle terms in the 
High Top Hermitage Stakes, 
appeared to be porsmng a lost 
cause as he chased Presidium 
from the start but Swinbnra 
would not accept defeat. 
Conquering Hero bravely kept 
on answering his partner's calls. 


and they wore down Presidium 
in the last few strides to win by a 
bead. 

Lavender Mist was also way 
courageous in the BaDymacoO 
Stud Stakes. She was boxed in 
with two furlongs to go as 
Btshah and Ola Domesday 
Book battled tor the lead. Once 
Lavender Mist escaped, she 
produced a sharp turn of foot to 
smother the two leaders in the 
last SO yards. 

In contrast, Swinburn 
co mmitted himself almost half a 
mile from home on Newsells 
Park in the N ether* vou Handi- 
cap. pushing John Winter's five- 
year-old oat three lengths dear 
of Fandango Light. The 
Northnmberiand Plate is a pos- 
sible target for Newsells Park, 
who has broken down twice and 
not had mach racing in the last 
two years. 

The Berkshire Stakes has 
been won over die years by a 
stream of very good horses, 
including sacb as Brigadier 


Gerard. Habat, Tadhypoas, 
Bassenthwaite and Stalker, who 
all went on to win the Middle 
Park. Few can have scored quite 
as easily as Floose, who 
the odds without the slightest 
effort. Richard Qnmn brooght 
him from last to first and his 
one-length margin of victory 
o*tx Lndanaga flattered the 
runner-up. 

Floose is a half-brother to the 
smart Sarah, but surprisingly, 
Paul Cole appears to have no 
ambitious plans. The 
Whatcombe trainer said: “He 
was a very bte foal and I won't 
posh him too highly. 

‘ Interval and Chasing Moon- 
beams, who had the finish of the 
West Hsley Malden Stakes 
entirely to themselves, separated 
by a neck, looked two highly 
promising yooug fillies. Interval, 
who covered the five furlongs in 
a time (L64 seconds quicker than 
Floose, was the first juvenile 
winner of the season with his 
third runner far Jeremy Tree. 


Neville Crump . Ibe 
Middleham trainer, was fined 
£550 by the Jockey Club's 
disciplinary committee yes- 
terday after they heard that 
traces of a prohibited substance 
were found in a sample taken 
from Green Gorse, a winner at 
Doncaster in March.

EQUESTRIANISM 


Promise of a car 
gives Glazzard 
additional drive 



On-course bening duty could 
soon be abolished under the 
Finance Bill currently going 
through Parliament. A new 
clause to tbe Bill has been tabled 
by rwo Conservative MPs and 
letters of support for the amend- 
ment Have been sent 10 the 
Finance Bill committee by a 
number of racing organisations, 
including the Jockey Club. 
Horserace Betting Levy Board, 
the Tote Board, the Racecourse 
Association, and the National 
Association of Bookmakers. 

* It is frit that the abolition of 
on-course duty would help re- 
dress the advantage given to the 
o Recourse market, following the 
relaxation of restrictions in bet- 
ting shops, which has allowed 
televised racing 10 be shown and 
refreshments to be served. It 
could also help attract bigger 
crowds to racecourses, a quarter 
of which made profits of Jess 
than £5,000 in 1985. 

. In their letter, the Jockey Club 
point out that an ideal opportu- 
nity now exists for abolition, as 
the improvement in bening 
shop facilities is likely 10 create a 
substantial increase in turnover. 
It would only take a 6.7 percent 
increase to compensate for the 
£18 million currently raised by 
co-course duty.

WORCESTER: Kent beat 
W orcestershire by 11 runs. 

A brilliant 72 from Graeme 
Hick could not atone for a 
slow start by Worces t ershire 
when they set oat to make 253 
to win this Benson and Hedges 
Cup semi-final tie yesterday. 
Hick was fifth out, with 91 still 
wanted in 10 overs. It proved 
too much and Kent reached 
the competition’s final for the 
fifth time. Neil Taylor, the 
first to increase the tempo in 
Kent's innings, won the gold 
award. 




Kent owed much to a 
positively frisky third-wicket 
stand between Tavarf and 
Taylor, who belied the reputa- 
tions sometimes held against 
them. These two added 139 in 
25 overs. Both were out within 
three halls of each other at the 
wrong time for Kent who lost 
stx wickets in the final seven 
overs. 


For once in this dreadful 
summer the sun shone almost 
without interruption and the 
cricket lived up to the setting, 
with the New Road ground 
looking at its best Worcester- 
shire bowled with commend- 
able purpose

foundation by Benson and 
Hinks after they were put in 
on a slow, damp pitch. PateL 
the off-spinner, who made a 
mu contribution to the attack, 
broke the stand in his third 
over, when he beat Benson 
through the air. 

There was a quiet period as 
Tavare and Taylor settled in 
but after lunch they added 80 
in 1 0 overs. Taylor found gaps 
on both sides of the wicket 
Tavart drove straight with 
power and worked the ball 
regularly to the leg-side. 

Rhodes was involved in 
both men's dismissals. Fiisi 
he gathered a loose return 
from O'Oliveira at third man 
and ran out Taylor. In the next 
over Rhodes held Tavare 
down the leg-side from a 
glance against Radford. 
Baptiste hit the ball hard 
during Kent’s death throes. 

Worcestershire made a 
shaky start before Hicks and 
Neale restored the balance. 
The score was 10 for two from 
nine overs after Patel mu- 
tinied a drive and was caught 
at cover and Smith was leg- 
before to Ellison. At 38 
D'Oliveira was caught down 
the leg side before Hides and 
Neale drove and pulled freely 


and by tea Worcestershire 
were 104 for three. 

Afterwards both men 
reached their fifties in the 
same over by Underwood. 
The fourth-wicket stand, 
which added 1 18 in 26 overs, 
ended when Neale was run out 
by Chris Cowdrey with a 
direct hit from extra cover.

Toughest course

Nicklaus to a tee 


From Mitchell Platts, Soathampton, Long Island 


.3205.4- 


His first professional triumph 
was in the 1962 United Slates 
Open at OakmonL His most 
recent success was in the US 
Masters at Augusta two months 
ago. Today. at Shinnecock Hills, 
a geographical anachronism in 
America s golfing landscape, 
Jack Nicklaus will begin his 
attempt to stretch further his 
remarkable record of 20 
championships. 

By Sunday that number will 
have risen to 21 if he breaks 
another record by capturing a 
fifth US Open. He has, of 
course, also won six US Mas- 
ters, five US PGA champion- 
ships, three Open 
Championships _ and two US 
Amateur championships. 

When last previewing a major 
championship, at Augusta, the 
prospect of a Nicklaus success 
seemed about as likely as Frank 
Sinatra having another No. I hit 
in the British chans. But 
Nicklaus, of ibe iceberg-blue 


would provide formidable ev- 
idence of his elevation to the 
category of proven champion. 

The feeling, too, is that only 
the proven champions will pos- 
sess the courage and self-belief 
to sustain the iron will that will 
be required to win what could be 
the finest US Open in history. 
Thus the rising stars of Ameri- 


can golf, such as Hal Sutton, 
Twa 


eyes, came back. He putted the 


Bob Tway and the professional 
newcomer. Scon Verplank, may 
be forced to accept this week 
purely as part of their education. 
Even Greg Norman and Tom 
Kite may find the task too 
much. 

Sandy Lyle, however, reckons 
he has served his time. That a 
victory in a US Open, or a US 
Masters, while not a formality, 
is only a maner of being patient. 
It is not a brazen view from a 
man we know to be modest but a 
realistic assessment that his 
prospects of winning such titles 
as these naturally increased

out of the last nioe greens 
and, for that matter, out of

other rivals. 

Nicklaus has been given ibe 
perfect arena to advertise his 
artistry again. “They’ll be 
screaming about this course,” he 
said. “Screaming about how 
lough it is. Screaming about the 
rough. Screaming about every- 
thing. You see, 90 per cent of the 
players here have never played a

A remarkable bailing collapse

Middlesex control of this Ben- 
son &. Hedges semi-finaL At 
5.25. after 32 overs. Not- 
tinghamshire were 110 for one 
and heading, it seemed, for 250 
or more. Randall and Broad 
were both going well, especially 
Randall. By 6.10 they were 140 
for eight. They finished by 
leaving Middlesex to make 190 
today. 

In 3 1 balls on a perfectly good 
pitch Emburey took four wick- 
ets. including those of Broad. 
Randall and the dangerous 
Hadlee. With the last ball of his 
tednih over Daniel bowled Rice 
and with the first bail of his 1 1 tb

gan at once to bat better than 
any Englishman had in the Test 
match. For Nottinghamshire 
second wicket he and Broad 
added 1 1 1 in 30 overs. 

Broad’s .form, as well as 
Randall's, may have interested 
those of the England selectors 
who were watching, as will 
Slack's today. It is not often that 
they can see three contenders for 
the same Test place in the same 
m3ich. Broad was pow yorfced 
by Emburey. and within mo- 
ments the whole picture was 
changing. 

Broad was. out in the 33rd 
oyer. In the 34th. Rice was 
beaten for pace by Daniel. 
Darners rather muscle-bound 
appearance and short, lumber- 
ing ran may have given not only 
Rice the wrong Idea, but also 
Johnson, whom Daniel bowled 
first ball. Johnson was late with 
his stroke and badly across the 
line - a pity because he is a 
well worth 


Emburey. firmly but not quite 
out of the middle of the bat. 
When Daniel had bowled Rice 
and Johnson his colleagues 
come and patted him as tho ugh 
he was a favouriteoJd dog: when 
Emburey sent back Hadlee their 
joy was unconfined. 

French went in the 42nd over, 
bowled by Baser, and Pick in 
the 43rd, very well caught by 
Miller running in from the 
square leg boundary. Hadlee 
will have to be at his best today 
to make up for all ting .

TENNIS 


not played host to 
since 1896. The belief is that 
every professional, win or lose, 
will leave with the feeling that 
the experience was a privilege 
even if the result was 
catastrophic 

The reason for that is simple 
to define. The US Open is 
traditionally played on beauti- 
fully manicured inland courses. 
Shinnecock Hills is little more 
than a mite north of Shinnecock 
Bay and an equal distance south 
of Great Peconic Bay. The 
flavour and fragrance, then, is of 
a links course with gnarled, 
reedlike grasses glistening in the 
sun. Then there is the mouth- 
watering prospect, at least for 
some, 01 the wind blowing hard, 
so challenging the players to 
execute the pitch-and-run shots

The rough cradling the greens 
will make the second shots at 
the difficult par four holes of 
paramount importance. The 
rough, lush in pans where it has 
been grown in 10 narrow the

Hope's perfect verbal shot “If 
you go in the rough at 
Shinnecock, you'll need a tet-

Nicklaus believes ihat 
Ballesteros and Langer will be

victory would heal the painful 
memory of his eleventh-hour 
eclipse at Augusta. For Langer it

following his success at Royal St 
George's last summer. 

Lyle has played in two pre- 
vious US Opens. He foiled to 
survive the halfway cut in both. 
He said: “When I first played at 
Baltusrol in 1980 I was simply 
over-awed. I stepped on the first 
tee with Arnold Palmer and, 
knowing that the great man was 
watching me, I lost my nerve. 
Being Open champion means, 
to me, that 1 now belong to an 
exclusive club. I've been down 
the road to one major 
championship; I feel that I can 
do it again.' 1 

If Lyle succeeds then he will 
follow in the footsteps of Tony 
Jack! in, who won the British 
Open in 1969 then the US 
equivalent 1 1 months later. 

Tom Watson, unhappily, has 
yet to recover his putting touch 
so an unlikely run of two years 
without a win will end only if he 
turns the corner in that vital 
department. If the wind blows, 
he could emerge once again as 
hr has proved by winning five 
British Opens that Shinnecock 
Hills fits snugly into his kind of 
course. 


Beale helps

New Zealand took a winning 


.5-1 lead yesterday when bril 
lianl sunny weather greeted the

MacRobemon Shield at the 
Bowdon Club. Cheshire (Keith

Joe Hogan (New Zealand)

Chambers. 2-0 and Graham 
Beale, aged 20. of New Zealand,

At the beginning of the recent 
French championships he said 
there was always a good chance 
of drawing a Swede in the first 
round. That was a truism be- 
cause there arc so many very 
good .Swedes and, just behind 
them, a small army threatening 
to break through. Men’s tennis, 
at the top anyway, has the 
makings of a closed shop. 

Bjorn BoTg carried the ban- 
ner. Then came the new troops 
— Mats Wilander. Hennk 
Sundstrom. Anders Janyd. 
Joakim - Nystrom and Sletan 
Edbcrg. All became good 
enough to rank among the 
workfs 10 leading players but 
there was hot room for all of 
them in the Davis Ctip. There 
were rumours, too. that a Swede 
called Mikael Pemfors was bat- 
ing everyone in sight while 
studying in the United States. . 

We .know more about 
P emfors now. in bis first year on 
the international circuit he 
reached the French final, beat- 
ing Ed berg. Boris Becker and 
Henri Leconte (among others) 
on the wayl Pemfors is smart, 
nimble and versatile. His build 
is much like Ken RosewaiTs — 
that is. smaller than the norm 
among tennis players. But our 
old chum Dick Crealy reckons 
that except for what is usually a - 
two-fisted backhand. Pemfors 
has a playing method' reminis- 
cent of Manuel Santana's. - 
Nor must we forget a you 
Swede. Ulf Stenlund. 
reached the last 16 in Paris (bis 
first grand prix tournament) 
without losing a set and then 
rook Andres Gomez to five sets. 
In Stenlund's case, comparisons 
are easy. When watching; him. 



Lindqvist: inspired 

that a woman. Sigrid Flick, was 
the first Swedish player to win a 
foreign champions top: the Ger- 
man indoor title in 1923. Some 
may not have noticed that in the 
Australian championships 
Christina Sandberg (1970). 
Elisabeth Ekblom (1976) and 
Catenna Lindqvist (1985) all 
achieved prominence, tossing 
kindling on a fire that has yet to 
do more than smoulder. 

There was a brief fling at 
Wimbledon two years ago when 
the elfin, joyously uninhibited 
Carina Karisson became the 
first Swedish woman to reach 
the last eight of one of the three 
major championships: those of 
Wimbledon. France and the 
; United States. Miss Karisson 
has yetto build on that promise. 
But Miss Lindqvist; -who has a 
classic backhand, is on the fringe 
‘ of the top lOand this year a host 


of younger Swedish players are

of them are. probably unaware ; coaches but there is much 


mutual aid. “The coaches inter- 
mingle very much and help each 
other and the players." says 
Ingrid Bentzer. Miss Sandberg's 
one-time Federation Cup part- 
ner. who now has her own 
promotion and management 
company. “The concept is ad- 
mirable because of the system's 
flexibility. It’s good to have a 
few players at the top who can 
share coaches and have fon 
together.” 

Players good enough to get 
into the scheme have special 
coaching and training, in addi- 
tion to tournament com- 
petition. The teams will be re- 
appraised at the end of every 
year, with some players moving 
up and others down. !n this 
inaugural year the first team 
consists of Miss Lindqvist and 
Miss Karisson. 

Journalists tend to be cynical 
but two of Sweden's most 
experienced scribes. Bjorn 
Heflberg and Nils Magnuson. 
join in the chorus of praise for 
Volvo's initiative. “In the Euro- 
pean junior championships, 
since 1976. we have had 18 
singles victories in the boys' 
events but none in the girls' 
events." Hellberg says. “One 
reason we have no really 
women players is that there 
have been only two or three 
good players, competing, 
whereas the boys push each 
other because there are 20 or so 
fighting for a place. Now the 
girls are practising together and 
trying hard to be the best in their 
groups. That will make them 
more competitive “ 

Swedish women's tennis has 
yet to be inspired by the 
example of a player with Borg's 
reputation, or Wilander’s.bui 
the ambience within women's 
tennis will soon be much like 
that within the men's game.

Dahlstrom and Monica

team) may soon be familiar.

The grand masters of Euro-

which starts at La Moye today. 
They are all engaged in headier

Jersey’s shores.

Washout for England 


has still managed to attract most 
of the best of the rest- 
Few hare more incentive to 
aim for victory than Howard 
Clark, who was overtaken at the 
top of the Epson order of merit 
when Ballesteros won the 
Dnnhill Masters last weekend: 
the Yorks hireman lies second 
with season's earnings of 
£71,357, a mere £598 behind the 
Spaniard. The winner's cheque 
of £13330 here would put him 
back at the top of the table after 
a fine start to the season which 
has brought him victories in the 
Madrid Oped and the S panish 
Open and three other top 10 
finishes. 

Clark is also the defending 
champion at La Moye. a fourth- 


a glowing reputation 
in inter-collegiate competition. 
A place in the Curtis Cup team, 
to be announced on Saturday, is 
now nothing more than a distant 
dream for both. 

Patricia Johnson, the English 
stroke-play champion, also 
ruined her card, if not her hope 
of survival, with an inexplicable 
eight at the last, to finish with 80 
and 155. A lee shot into a 
bunker was a mild setback, for 
she came out well from the sand. 
Then, from 80 yards out and in 
the centre of the fairway, she 
dumped her pitch shot into a 
green side bunker. Even that 
should have been no more than 
a small irritant but. once on the 


S she took four putts on a

last year by one shot on 
which is nine under pan bat 
dark is not likely to have things 
all his own way. The main threat 
may come from a group of half a 
dozen players, led by the Austra- 
lian, Rodger Davis, and David 
Feherty, of Ireland, both tour- 
nament winners this season,' 
Rooan Rafferty and Gordon 
Brand Junior, who was second In 
the Dnnhill Masters. 

Of the younger set. the form 
horses are Philip Walton and 
Robert Lee. Walton, aged 24. a 
former Walker Cup player, fin- 
ished equal fourth in the Whyte 
and Mackay PGA champion- 
ship two w eek s ago. the besr 
performance of his short pro- 
fessional career, and Lee, also 
24. has finished in the top 10 In 
three tournaments this year, 
including a third place at Wo- 
barn at the weekend. All are 
likely to provide Clark with a 
severe challenge. 

As championship courses go. 
La Moye. at 6,759 yards and 
with a par of 72, does not pose 
Insurmountable problems, but ft 
is still not to be trifled with. A 
typical Units course, with its 
quota of runs, bumps and hol- 
lows, it puts a premium oq 
accuracy off rtw tee. and even 
then many are the second shots 
•hat will have to be tackled with 
feet either above or below the 
bolL 


illiard-tabfe surface through an 
extraordinary lapse of 
concentration. 

At the end of the round, six 
players were left on 155 and had 
to take part in a sudden-death 
play-off for the five remaining 
places to produce a field of 32 
for the match-play section. 
When they were called to the 
tee, however, it was discovered 
that Sarah Bennett, of Col- 
chester, had left the course, 
presumably under the im- 
pression that she would not 
qualify. The other five, includ- 
ing Miss Johnson, were slotted, 
therefore, into the automatic 
draw. 

Mary McKenna, striving for 
her ninth successive Curtis Cup 
place, teetered on the same 
tightrope of 155. Even that was 
achieved only with a heroic 
three with her second bail at tbe 
difficult 18th after finding her 
first ball unplayable in foe 
bushes. 

Gill Thornhill, recently in- 
stalled as English champion in 
succession to Miss Johnson, led 
the qualifiers with a second 
round of 72 and a total of 145.

THE TIMES THURSDAY JUNE 12 1986 


FOOTBALL- ENTERTAINMENT IS THE NAME OF THE GAME AS FRANCE TIME THEIR rHAM ENGE FOR THE TOP TO PERFECTION 


Maestro Platini 
set to change 
tune against the 



From Darid Miller, Mexico City 


If the Koreans can scare 
Italy — the second time those 
Orientals have done it though 
this time not so successfully as 
their Communist brothers' 20 
years ago — then what may the 
French do? The sane world of 
football, which is still to be 
found if you search for it 
among the money-makers, 
must pray that France, 
colourful, extravagant enter- 
taining France, do not screw 
up their second-round match 
against Italy in the Olympic 
stadium next T uesday the way 
Brazil threw away their semi- 
final place four years ago. 

As the French relaxed with 
their wives after the drubbing 
of Hungary in Leon on Mon- 
day, just about the only player 
who wanted to meet Italy 
rather than Argentina, whose 
final matches were on Tues- 
day, was Platini. The splendid 
showmanship of the man 
hankered after giving a lesson 
to the country where he earns 



his rich living. WeU, much of 
it His colleagues think Argen- 
tina would be easier, and they 
are probably right 

France have beaten Italy 
only once in the last half- 
century, in Paris just before 
Ahe 1984 European Champi- 
onships. It was hero's day for 
the aptly named goal-scorer. 
Bravo, but sadly his head 
subsequently grew to such 
proportions accepting compli- 
ments from uncounted admir- 
ers along the boulevards, that 
little- has been seen of him 
Since. And. France are still 
looking for a goal-scoring 
forward. 

: “Italy are no longer the 
favourites nowadays when 
they meet France," Platini 
$ays with conviction. That 
could be true if he himself 
Starts to perform more as a 
maestro and less like an 
understudy- So for, we. have 
seen only a fraction of his 
geniHs. and there is a nagging. 
Ihough unspoken, doubt 
about his AcHilles tendon 
•injury. It did not show, visi- 
bly, against the Soviet Union 
or Hungary, but next week is 
the moment when Platini has 
to stop rehearsing. “The. first 
round is for warming up,” -he 
has said disdainfully. 

Fair enough. The competi- 
tion has become as arduous as 
an ascent of Everest you have 
to walk from Katmandu for a 
fortnight before you start 
climbing Unlike England, 
who believe .they had. reached 
a peak in time to play Portu- 
gal, and all too embarrassingly 
Bad not. France have always 


had the intention, like an 
Olympic runner, of. reaching 
full fitness only for the later 
races. 

Henri Michel, their manag- 
er, was all smiles in Leon, as 
well he might be, so long as he 
shuts out of bis mind the 
repeated missed chances by 
Papin and Sicpyra. A single 
chance may be an that is 
offered to settle the issue 
against nervous, defensive Ita- 
ly, who will inevitably contin- 
ue in their neurotic, cautious 
shell. Admiration for 
Bearzoi's . technically gifted 
players is unbounded, .but I 
have no patience for their 
tedious, shrivelled sporting 
mentality. If Italy had an 
ounce of tactical courage, they 
could win most World Cups. 
Let us hope they do not steal 
this one, because I would not 
bet against them at home in 
the next. 

“We're short of our maxi- 
mum, and for the moment 
lack concentration," Michel 
claims. But though he seems 
at ease, they say Platini pulls 
some of the strings. Many 
critics think that Le Roux, the 
Nantes stopper, is nowadays 
better than Battislon. of Bor- 
deaux. But Battiston is one of 
the “old boys" of 1 984, and it 
is difficult for Michel, the 
newcomer, to use a broom, 
especially against the captain's 
wishes. 

Platini's influence is obvi- 
ous. He talks to the players 
like an emotional orchestral 
conductor, pleading with 
them. I thought he was too 
critical on Monday of Papin 
and Stopyra; they need pa- 
tience and understanding as 
ordinary, mortal players. 
Maybe Rocheleau, the veter- 
an, will remain in place of 
Papin. 

Michel Hidalgo, manager of 
'84, sits benignly in the Press 
stands, stirring no spoon. “It 
will be a technical match 
against Italy, an emotional 
one against Argentina," he 
said before we knew the 
outcome. He looked optimis- 
tic either way. After all, be had 
just seen as good a goal as any 
scored so for. 

Rocheleau had been on the 
pitch about 30 seconds with 
20 minutes to go. Picking up a 
ball near his own penalty area, 
he slipped it to Tigana, who 
piaye&a one-two with Platini. 
Rocheteau, who had followed 
the play, exchanged another 
one-two with Tigana, and the 
ball was in Hungary's net like 
a rifle shot. 

• Alessandro Altobelli, 
Italy's spearhead in this World 
Cup campaign, has found a 
rich vein of form at just the 
right time. After scoring three 
goals in his side's 3-2 victory 
over the Koreans, the tab 
forward from Inter Milan 
became, at that point,- the 
tournament's leading scorer 
with five goals.

Tottenham deny 



is on the move 


„ that Glenn HtXfepe 

would be leaving Tottenham 
Hotspur after the World Cup, to 
join the Dutch .dub, Ajax 
Amsterdam, wem denied yes- 
terday by his club. Peter Day, 
the Tottenham secretary, said: 
“At oo time have we said

Thete has been no meeting, as 

has been suggested, between our 

fh^h -man and the Ajax chair- 
man. It is just not true.

Destiny of Scotland depends 
on their assertive spirit 


Scotland will have control of 
their destiny' tomorrow when 
they square up to the un- 
compromising- Uruguay in 
Mexico's Nezshiudcayoti sta- 
dium. Victory will be enough to 
propel the Soots into the second 
phase for the first time. A draw 
or a defeat would force Alex 
Ferguson's side to retreat quietly 
from Mexico, having tripped 
over the first hurdle for the 
fourth time in succession. 

The dramatic plot unfolded 
on Tuesday when Argentina 
beat Bulgaria, giving Scotland 
the opportunity to finish as one 
of the four third-place qualifiers 
from the six groups. If they 
collect two points tomorrow, 
Scotland are certain to overhaul 
both Bulgaria and Hungary , on 
goal difference to scramble awk- 


wardly into the last 16. 

After that the incentive would 
be huge for Scotland. Their next 
opponents would he either the 
Croup A winners, Argentina, in 
Puebla or the Group D winners, 
Brazil or Spain, in Guadalajara, 
next Monday. 

It is a peculiar feature of the 
format for the 1 986 finals that a 
country without a single point 
from two games should still be 
alive and kicking. Ferguson 
said: “Maybe the break is start- 
ing to come our way at last. The 
Bulgaria and Hungary results 
really could not have gone better 
for us." 

Now Scotland will stage their 
own private version of the 
World Cup final against a team 
whose reputation for nastiness 
goes back a long way.- Ferguson 


added: “It is the most important 
game we will play in the World 
Cup. There is so much resting 
on it. When we left home we 
knew that jbree points would be 
enough to qualify but we always 
worked on the theory that two 
might be enough. That is just 
what has happened. This is 
reality for u£ now and we have 
just got to gjve.it our best show. 
“We must forget all about the 
bad breaks we had against us. 
This is the time when we haveto 
assert ourselves in a way which 
demonstrates that we want to 
progress." 

Scotland's squad spent yes- 
terday afternoon relaxing with a 
shopping trip into Mexico City 
after a tough teaming sprint at 
■ their- headquarters outside the 
capital. . ~ * 


Argentina cruised into the last 

16 of the World Cap with a 
workmanlike, 'if uninspiring, 2-0 
win over Bulgaria in the Olym- 
pic si arijntn in Mexico City. 
Now the Group A champions 
must wait until the end of the 
week to discover who their 
opponents will be in Puebla next 
Monday; they are scheduled to 
face one of the four best third- 
placed teams. 

■Italy, their feBow Group A 
members, know who their oppo- 

nents will be, but the knowledge 

Home from s 

secured only second place in the 
section, which means the World 
Cup holders must play France, 
the European champions, in the 
second round next Tuesday. 

Fnw Bearzot, the Italian 
manager, accepted, philosophi- 
cally that two such favoured 
teams should meet at a rel- 
atively early stage. “France will 
be a difficult match." he said. 
“But all our matches in the 
future will be difficult." Henri 
Michel, the manager of France, 
said: “We win reach our foil 
range fo the second round. We 
are on an ascending carve.” 


Spain’s chance to make amends 



Monterrey (Reuter) — Spain 
are confident that they can 
overcome the heax-anda.: 
Algerian defence in their 
Group D match at the Tecno- 
logico stadium today. 

Although they will be without 
their thrusting midfield player, 
Gordillo. who severely bruised 
his left leg in the 2-1 win over 
Northern Ireland, Spain arrived 
here in buoyant mood, relishing 
the chance to secure their place 
kr the next round and erase 
memories of their disappoint- 
ment in 1982. 

Michel, another midfield 
player, said that Spain would 
□Ot underestimate Algeria, who 
demonstrated their defensive 
skills in resisting Brazil for so 
long before being beaten 1-0 and 
in holding Northern Ireland 1-1. 

“It will he a difficult man*," 
he said. “On paper it looks like 
our easiest fixture, but we saw 
them play Brazil and they did 
not deserve to lose. Against 
Northern Ireland they played 
well in a good match." 

• - Michel added: “We shall have 


to be careful not to concede an 
early goal, but to play to win. We 
-know we are -close to-ensuring 
our qualification for the second 
round, but we must make sure." 

Miguel Munoz, who took 
over as conch from Jofo 
Samamaria after Spain's dismal 
showing on home soil four years 
ago, is faced with only one- 
selection problem. He is un- 
likely to make drastic changes to 
a team which has promised to' 
develop info one of the most 
powerful in the tournament. 

Gordillo, who was feared to 
have broken his fog until X-ray 
examinations showed no frac- 
ture, was able to jog during light 
training on Tuesday and hopes 
to return to the line-up later in 
the competition. His place wifi 
be taken by Ramon Caldere, of 
Barcelona, who came on as a 
substitute against Northern 
Ireland. 

Algeria, who surprised the 
football world when they beat 
West Germany 2-1 in the 1982 
finals, are, like Morocco, no 
longer unfunded outsiders. 


They will be striving for at least 
a draw in the hope of ovethaul- 
ing Northern Ireland, who meet 
Brazil in Guadalajara at the 
same rime. 

Algeria are bottom of the 
group on goal difference but 
levd on one point with the Irish. 
Their coach, Rabah Saadane, 
did not disdose his line-up 
when the squad arrived here on 
Tuesday. 

• GUADALAJARA: FIFA will 
allow Portugal to replace their 
veteran goalkeeper. Bento, who 
broke a leg in training last week. 
Am audio Carvalho, a team 
official, said that Portugal would 
send for a third goalkeeper jf 
they qualified for foe second 
round, although Bento will re- 
main with the squad in Mexico. 

Spain were last week refused 
permission to -replace their 
sweeper, Antonio Maceda, after 
he damaged bis right knee 
during the 1-0 defeat by Brazil 
but Senbor Carvalho said FIFA 
usually took a sympathetic view 
ifthe player involved was a goal- . 
keeper. 


Train (AF) - Bui Rash de- 
cided to join . Juventns, the 
Italian side, because of their 
similarity to IhctpooL The 
forward, who helped Liverpool 
win the League and FA Cop 
double last season, signed for 
the Turin side on Tuesday night 
and told a Press co nfe rence; “I 
am happy because Javentns are 
the dab most closely resenUmg 
Liverpool, in all senses, includ- 
ing the mentality of the 

players." ... . 

The Welsh international 
added: “My desire to come to 
live in this heaatiM country also 
weighed in my derisfon. Also, I 
will be playing at a great dub." 

The transfer fee is estimated 
at 7.5 billion lire (about £35 
miffion), and Rush is reported to 
having seemed 606 million Urea 
year. 

Rush, however, will probably 
be playing at Liverpool on loan 
next season. Officials nf the 
Italian FooftmO Association are 
debaifogwhether to change their 
tnle tfaat-pennhs each team to 
field - two foreign ' - players. 
Juventns already have two: Mi- 
chael Laodrap and Mlchd 
Platini. 

Rnsh, who was accompanied 
by his lawyer, Robert Dean, 
insisted: “I won’t be parked. If I 
don't wear .the shirt of Javentns 
next season, I will remain with 
Liverpool.” 


Goals by Jorge Valdano, his 
third of the competition, after 
just three minutes, and Jorge 
Burruchaga 14 minutes from rite 
end were enough to sink the 
dour Bulgarians, who rarely 
troubled the Argentinian goal- 
keeper, Pumpido. 

Apart from spasmodic flashes 
of rail from Maradona, there 
were few incidents to excite the 
63.000 spectators, who fre- 
quently - showed their dis- 
pleasure by booing and 


'Quids 'BSaido, the manager 
of Argentina, confessed: “Bul- 
garia made ii.awkwantfor us at 


times with their cautious atti- 
tude. But it was satisfying, to 
win, and now we don' t mind 
whom we meet in the second 
round. We don't fear anyone." 

After a tepid start to die 
World Cup, with more blanks 
being fired than builds, the goei- 
scormg has picked up as the day 
of first-round reckoning has 
approached. 

At one stage the god rale uw 
fewer than two per game ton 
after Tuesday's programme it 
was nearly 25 a match, an 

imp r o vement tail soBbclowthc 
ratio during any o f the 12 
previous World Cup fun d s . 

None strove more earnestly 
for goals than Sooth Korea , who 
scored twice against the Ita lian s. 
Sadly for the Koreans, though, 
the defending champions scored 
three times and the Asian team, 
earing in the finals for the 
, time, were eliminated. 

Altobelli was credited with all 
three Italian goals, although it 
was a Korean defender’s arm 
that helped the hafl across the 
line for the 'third. AbobeHi, the 
lop marksman in the tour- 
nament with five goals, has 
scored tn Italy's last four World 
Cap matches, toe. three in 
Mexico and the 1982 final 
against West Germany in Spain.

Barry PictthalFs America’s Cop Diary 

Cudmore loses out as the 
Australians move in fast 


Wh3e the British crew is 
putting the final touches to the 
David Hollom designed 12- 
metre Crusader H before its 
launch off Fremantle on Mon- 
day. Harold Cndmore, the 
dripper, and his backing syn- 
dicate are reflecting on a 
missed ..opportunity to recruit 
one of Britain's leading legal 
advisers in sailing law. 

Bryan Willis, who repre- 
sented Peter de Savary during 
the previous America's Cop, 
was approached by the British 
syndicate late last year. Bat 
when nothing more was beard. - 
Willis took op an offer to 
represent the Australian Task 
Force 10 syndicate of Kevin 
Parry. Cndmore has now in- 
vited Mary Peru, Britain’s, 
only other leading legal expert 
in die field, to kelp oat. But 
she has already - been ap- 
proached to represent one of 
the^ Italian syndicates. 

Run aground 

Yves Pajot's. syndicate, 
French Challenge 12, repre- 
senting -the Marseilles Yacht 
Club, ceased operating yester- 
day two weeks befote their new 
Andrea-design boat was doe to 
be launched. .The French 
group, the second America’s 
Cap c halleng ers to pull Out 
this year, first ran into trouble 
in February when Pajot and 
his crew were forced to with- 
draw from the world champi- 
onship when funds dried .op, 
(eating their trail horse* Chal- 
lenge J2, for Cndmore to use 


with a mixed British-French 
crew. 

The syndicate was later 
restructured, however, and the 
building of a 12-metre boat 
began. It is completed, but the 
promised $5 million in funds 
has not beenforthcoming. This 
leaves the French Kiss group, 
led by Yves's brother, Mark, 
as the sole French standard- 
bearer in the efindnation trials 
off Perth in October. 

But this group has also been 
hit by the collapse of their 
rivals, as the two boats were to 
undergo a series of important 
timing trials next month be- 
fore being shipped to 
Australia. .

Jennings the man 


come what may 


From Give White 
Guadalajara 

Win, lose or draw against 
Brazil, the Irish will have 
themselves a party here to* 
night For no matter what the 
result the man of the moment 
must be Fat Jennings, who is 
41 today. If Northern Ireland 
fail to qualify for the second 
round of these World Cup 
finals, it win be Jennings's last 
game for club or country. 

This will be his 119th cap 
for the Irish, so raising still 


various scenarios, the most 
important of which is that 
Algeria fail to beat Spain. 
Victory for Northern Ireland 
would "guarantee their place in 
the knock-out stage, and prob- 
ably a match against the hosts. 
Mexico, in the Azteca stadi- 
um. That, too, would not be 
such a bad place in which to 
close one's international 


for almost every game. He'll 
be a hard act to follow.” 
Jennings has bees the one 


Roma banned 
from Europe 


“People say the goalkeeper 
in go on forever. But the 





further his world record of 
goalkeeping appearances. 
“When this World Cup is over 
that will be the end of it," 
Jennings said emphatically 
yesterday. There wfl] be noth- 
ing around the comer for Billy 
Bingham, his Northern Ire- 
land manager, to sweet-talk 
Jennings into staying on for. 

And, if Jennings’s illustri- 
ous career is to end here, who 
better to provide the opposi- 
tion than Brazil in the magnif- 
icent Jalisco stadium, where 
his great contemporary. 
Banks, pulled off that miracu- 
lous save from Pele ? But 
Northern Ireland are not con- 
templating saying goodbye to 
the tournament or Jennings 
just yet With typical fortitude 
Bingham believes they can 
hold Brazil to a draw and that 
that will be enough to clinch 
one of the four best-placed 
third team places. 

Of course that assumes 


can go on forever. But the 
body's a bit like a car — the 
miles do go round the dock. 
In any game I play now my 
main concern is that 1 come 
through without injury. I have 
come to accept that I can't 
play the way I used to,” 
Jennings said. But just when 
the wrinkles begin to show be 
turns back the dock, as he did 
against Spain last Saturday 
when defying a young forward 
of the quality of Butrageno. 
Jennings says that he has 
treated all forwards with the 
same respect but names 
among the most threatening as 
Cruyff, Greaves, Law. 
Keegan. Best and Lee. No 
Brazilian is among that collec- 
tion, although Jennings has 
faced them once before, when 
representing an all-Ireland 


AS Roma, die Italian football 
league side, have been banned 
from European competit i ons for 
a year after their president, Dino 
Viola, was found guilty by 
UEFA of attempting to bribe the 
referee before a European Cap 
semi-finaJ match against Dun- 
dee United. The match, which 
took place in Rome in April 
1984, was won 3-0 by the 
Italians, giving them a 3-2 
aggregate victory. 


name you could always be 
sure of in a Bingham team 
which has, for the most part, 
been pure guesswork. What 
we do know for today is that 
Quinn (damaged instep) and 


Penney (ankle ligaments) are 
definitely out There is a 
strong suggestion that Bing- 
ham will play five across the 
middle with Clarke, who 
scored against Spain, left to 
fend for himself up front. 
With the defence likely to 
remain intact, the midfield 
will probably consist of Stew- 
art, Mcllroy, McCreery, 
Whiteside and Worthington. 

This should give them a 


team under the guise of Sham- 
rock Rovers in Dublin in the 
1970s. 

Bingham, who compares 
Jennings with Banks in terms 
of temperament, recalls a time 
he dropped the big man for 
two consecutive internation- 
als in 1970 and replaced him 
with Ian McFauL Bingham 
said: “He was not very pleased 
about it but, as I told him 
since. I'm the one who 
brought him back. It's been a 
lovely feeling to write his 
name down on the team sheet 


clear numerical advantage, at 
least, over a Brazilian midfield 
which, with the ageing Socra- 
tes and Falcao, is lacking in 
industry. In a practice on 
Monday, Tele Santana, the 
Brazilian manager, demoted 
the great duo to the shadow 
team and played the Sao Paulo 
trio of Muller, Careca and 
Silas up front with obvious 
' success. Santana had declined 


to start either of the first two 
games with Muller, yet each 
time brought him on with 
devastating effect. On each 
occasion before his arrival 
Brazil lacked impetus and it is 
vital that they are not allowed 
to get their noses in front. 
Muller, though, has not yet 
come up against a left back of 
toe calibre of Donaghy in this 

tournament. 

It was four years ago that 
Donaghy was ludicriously sent 
off against Spain in a World 
Cup match of similar intensity 
to this one. To qualify die 
Irish needed to beat their 
hosts, who themselves re- 
quired only a draw to top die 
group and thereby avoid a 
round-robin with England and 
West Germany. The victory of 
those little green giants that 
June evening in Valencia is 
now part of Irish folklore. 

Whether or not Northern 
Ireland add further glory to 
their history largely depends 
upon Brazil's ambitions. It is 
of paramount importance to 
them that they win the group, 
although to do that a draw 
would suffice. Apart from the 
desire to remain in Guadalaja- 
ra, which is the reward of the 
group winners, the position of 
runners-up in Group D is to 
be avoided. The unlucky . 
country have to face the 
winners of Group E —which at 
the moment looks 
forbiddingly like being 
Denmark.

OLYMPIC GAMES 


CRICKET 


N Korea offered four events Botham 


By John Goodbody 


The Internationa] Olympic 
Committee have proposed 
that North Korea host four 


sports in an attempt to stifle 
the threat of a Communist 


secretary general of their 
Olympic Committee, said his 
country would continue to 
Dush for more sports, indud- 


tbe threat of a Communist 
boycott of the 1988 Games in 
Seoul, South Korea. 

~ After two days of talks in 
Lausanne with both countries, 
Juan Antonio Samaranch, the 
president of the IOC, said the 
proposal for North Korea to 
stage the archery , table tennis, 
one football group and the 
start of the 100km cycling 
road race, which would finish 
in Seoul, was the “final offer”. 
He set a June 30 deadline for 
the two countries to accept the 
IOC proposal. 

The South Korean delega- 
tion said the decision on 
acceptance would have to be 
taken by their Government. 
But Man-Lip Choy, the vice- 
president of the South Korean 
Olympic Committee, said: 
“We see this as a positive 
proposal and we endorse it in 
order to save the Olympics.” 

The North Koreans were 
less enthusiastic. Ung Chang, 


push for more sports, includ- 
ing wrestling and 
weightlifting, plus the whole 
football tournament rather 
than just preliminary rounds. 
Ung Chang said his Govern- 
ment would study the propos- 
al but there was room for 
compromise. “Otherwise you 
cannot make decisions.” 

In return North Korea 
would have to open its borders 
to what Samaranch termed 
“all members of the Olympic 
family", namely 30,000 peo- 
ple accredited to the Games, 
such as competitors, coaches, 
officials and journalists 

If both countries agreed to 
the proposal then a fourth 
meeting would be held in July 
to discuss details including 
spectator access and television 
coverage. But the agreement 
would have to be ratified by 
the full 91-member IOC who 
meet in October. 

They may be loath to set a 
precedent of staging the sum- 


mer games in two countries 
because of clear political pres- 
sure. In 1956, when the Olym- 
pics were staged in 
Melbourne, the equestrian 
events were held in Sweden 
but that was because of 
Australia's stria quarantine 
laws for horses. 

Yet the IOC will also be 
reluctant to have the fourth 
successive Games spoiled by a 
boycott. North Korea could 
have strong backing from the 
Communist bloc, who may 
attempt a strategy of brink- 
manship - 

North Korea, upset when 
Seoul was awarded the Games 
in 1981, began campaigning to 
become co-hosts last year and 
gave substance to their de- 
mands by boycotting, together 
with Cuba, the world judo 
championships last Septem- 
ber in South Korea. 

They wanted the sports split 
evenly between the two coun- 
tries, which have been divided 
since the Second World War 
and devastated by the Korean 
War from 1950 to 1953.

committee. He wifi contest j 
both the verdict and the 
sentence imposed two weeks 
ago by the Test and County 
Cricket Board (TCCB) after he :

Bottom will argue that his

neither disrepute charges nor 
the sentence imposed. His

represented at the appeal to 
claim that they have been 
unfairly penalized. 

The committee which can , 
ratify, increase or reduce the ' 
sentence, will be chaired by 
Desmond Perrett, QC 

Talk of drugs and discipline 
seems set to dominate discus-

Next on the agenda is a j 
meeting between the TCCBs 
disciplinary committee and 
Peter May (chairman of selec-

Quiet man from Yale puts

If there was any consolation 
in the fact that Jeremy Bales, 
the British No. 2, Mowed 
John Lloyd out of the Stella 
Artois championships at the 
Queen's Club — beaten 6-3, 4- 
6, 6-1 by the effervescent 
Australian, Paul McNamee, in 
the second round — it was that 
some of the Swedes are also 
struggling. 

Anders Jarryd^the world's 
ninth-ranked player and seed- 
ed fourth here, went down 7-6, 
3-6, 6-1 to Glenn Layen- 
decker, a big-serving left- 
hander who learned his tennis 
at Yale. - 

During a relaxing week in 
Florence last month Layen- 
decker had plenty of time to 
peruse his progress since join- 
ing the , professional ranks 
three years ago. A quiet man 
with a deep interest in the 
game — he spent many hours 
in Florence helping the Press 
staff feed statistics into the 
computer — Layendecker did 
not expect to leap up the ATP 
rankings at the rate of a Becker 
or an Edberg. He is too 
realistic for that 


- However, he might have 
hoped for a few more break- 
throughs than did in feet come 
bis way after reaching the final 
of the grand prix event at 
Bristol last year, a final which 
was actually played at the 
David Lloyd Centre at Heston 
because ofthe weather. Never- 
theless, his ranking has crept 
up from 116 to 72 this year 
and this victory over Janyd, 
the highest ranked player be 
has ever beaten, will boost it 
still further.

that tod been interrupted 
overnight and was delayed 
again by morning rain. 

“Obviously some of my best 
results have been on grass, but 
I haven't convinced myself yet 
to think of it as my favourite 
surface,” Layendecker said. “I 
am not a good mover and I 


have a great deal of difficulty 
with my footing on grass. I 
suppose it takes practice.” 

totes was very depressed by 
his performance against 
McNamee. He professed to be 
unable to read the Australian’s 
tricky two-handed game and 
for long stretches of the match 
it looked like it. A brave 
recovery in the second set 
evaporated in , the third as 
McNamee, who was not satis- 
fied with his own serving, 
turned on the heat and de- 
stroyed the Englishman’s 
serve. . : ' ' 


Janyd, usually such a com- 
bative little player, has been 
out of sorts these past few 
weeks as indeed has his com- 
patriot, Macs Wiiander. It was 
very strange indeed that none 
of the top four Swedes man- 
aged to get as far as the last 
eight in Paris and Janyd, with 
the memory of a Wimbledon 
semi-final to encourage him, 
would have been hoping for a 
resurgence in form on grass. -
