The Prime Minister gave no 
indication yesterday that her 
opposition to economic sanc- 
tions against South Africa has 
been altered by the pablicatioa 
of the Oyyny w Mhh Emi- 
nent Persons' Group (EPG) 

Pressed by the opposition 
parties and some Conservative 
MPs to respond immediately 
to die EPG s call for economic 
action by Britain and other 
countries against South Afri- 
ca, Mrs Thatcher did not 
explicitly rule out sanctions, 
and gave what many MPs 
regarded as a cautions re- 
sponse to demands to lift her 
“veto” against them. She 
stressed that the report would 
be riven careful consideration

and ambulancemen at toe 
scene and a special medical 
team from toe Western Infir- 
mary, Glasgow, was being

sance aircraft was used to co- 
ordinate toe rescue operation. 

N Ireland 

By Philip Webster 
Chief Political 

The Government yesterday 
confirmed the dissolution of 
the Northern Ireland Assem- , 
bly but voiced toe hope that its 
absence would be temporary. 

Mr Tom King, the Secretary ' 
of State for Northern Ireland, 
announced in the Commons ; 
the Otoinet's decision to dis- . 
solve toe Assembly, set up by 
Mr James Prior in 1982, and 1 
to leave open toe date for 
elections for a new one. 

Speaking of a "lost 
opportunity”, Mr King told 
MPs that the Assembly was 
not discharging either of the 
functions with which it was 
charged, to make proposals on 
devolution and to monitor the 
work of the Northern Ireland 

But he emphasized that toe 
decision in no way conflicted 
with toe Government’s desire 
for devolved government nm 
its commitment to toe Anglo- 
Irish agreement 
Before Mr King spoke, the 
Prime Minister repeated In 
toe Commons that her invita- 
tion to toe Unionist parties to 
talk on devolution, toe future 
of the Assembly and arrange- 
ments for handling Northern 
Ireland business stood. 

Despite toe hardline stance 
of the Unionists, ministers 
remain hopeful that the As- 
sembly win be re-established 
and that talks between toe 
parties will be resumed. 

Mr Prior said in a BBC 
interview that in the present 
mcamstances there was no 
alternative to suspension. But 
he hoped alter a period of 
thought and negotiation there 
would be fresh elections and 
the Assembly set op again, 
perhaps early in the new year.

Labour finally 
expels Hatton 
after wrangle 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 

Mr Derek Hatton, deputy 
leader of Liverpool City 
Council, and one of the Mili- 
tant Tendency’s leading fig- 
ures, was finally expelled from 
the Labour Party last night. 

By 12 votes to six, Mr Neil 
Kinnock and the party's na- 
tional executive committee 
found him guilty of being a 
member of toe Trotskyist 
organization, and breaking 
Labour Party rules and stand- 
ing orders. 

The expulsion came after 
another day of complex legal 
and procedural wrangling, cul- 
minating in Mr Hatton’s law- 
yers rushing to toe High Court 
in an unsuccessful attempt to 
have flue disciplinary hearing 

Mr Hatton, who joined the 
Labour Party in 1971, was toe 
main target in Mr Kirin ock’s 
purgp, launched last Novem- 
ber, against leading members 
of the Militant-dominated 
Liverpool party. 

As the verdict was an- 
nounced, after eight hours 
consideration, a small band of 
Militant supporters chanted in 
support of Mr Hatton outside 
the Labour Party 

Mr Hatton did not attend 
yesterday's proceedings, pre- 
ferring instead to be at a city 
council finance meeting. 

His solicitor, Mr Mite Fish- 
er, addressed the NEC for 20 
minutes and requested that 
the hearing be adjourned until 
Mr Hatton could attend, and 

to allow him legal 

When the NEC rejected toe 
legal request and decided by 
12 votes to six to proceed 
against Mr Hatton in his 
absence, Mr Fisher left for toe 
High Court to seek an injunc- 
tion to halt toe proceedings. 

As Mr Larry Whitty, the 
Labour Party's general secre- 
tary. started to outline toe case 
against Mr Hatton, toe High 
Court granted a temporary 
injunction, forcing Mr 
Kinnock and his colleagues to 
break off for lunch. 

But Mr Hatton's success 
was short-lived. When Sir 
Nicolas Browne-WiUdnson. 
toe Vice-Chancellor, beard the 
full tacts he ruled against Mr 
Hatton and ordered him to 
pay costs. 

With toe path finally 
cleared of legal and procedural 
stumbling-blocks, the NEC 
quickly resumed hearing the 
charges against Mr Hatton. 

Mr Hatton is toe fourth 
Merseyside Militant to be 
expelled from toe Labour 
Party. The disciplinary hear- 
ings will continue today. 

Mr Hatton vowed last night 
to ignore toe ruling. He added 
that toe parly's leaders were 
“thieves in the night” deter- 
mined to destroy him in his 

He said that there was no 
question of him quitting his 
post as deputy leader of 
Liverpool council. 

Jobless down but 
trend is upward 

By Graham Seaijeantaad David Smith 

Pay is increasing at three 
times the rate of inflation, 
yesterday's official figures 
show. But unemployment re- 
mains on a firmly rising trend, 
and a new independent report 
suggests that growth in jobs 
will peter out by 1990. _ . 

The adult jobless total ad- 
justed for seasonal factors, 
rose by 5,600 in May to a 
record 3.208,600 - 13.3 per 
cent of the workforce. 

This was a bigger rise than 
in April when there was a 
4,400 increase, but smaller 
than toe sharp monthly rises 
over toe winter. Officials 
believe that toe jobless total is 
rising by an underlying 10,000 
to 15,000 a month. 

The unadjusted jobless to- 
tal including school leavers, 
declined, as is normal in May. 
It dropped by 54,166 to 
3.270,892, or 13.5 per cent of 
the workforce. 

In the 12 months to April 
average earnings rose by 8.7 
per cent. The underlying in- 
crease, after allowing for back 
pay, was 7.5 per cent This is 
stDI almost three times toe 

expected inflation figure for 
May, to be announced today, 
of about 2.6 per cent Lord 
Young ofGraunam, toe Secre- 
tary of State for Employment, 
said that the employed labour 
force rose by 279,000 last year. 

An independent and com- 
prehensive new study fore- 
casts, however, that toe 
British economy will at best 
produce an extra 1 75.000 jobs 
between now and 1990, and 
that employment is more 
likely to drop by 125.000 from 
1985 levels. 

The study — from the 
Occupations Study Group, 
made on toe initiative of the 
leading industrialist. Sir Aus- 
tin Bide — was based on toe 
forecasts of 3.000 big and 
small employers. 

It foresees 540,000 new jobs 
in service industries being 
swamped by toe loss of more 
than 600,000 in production 

These forecasts are slightly 
more gloomy than a compara- 
ble study last year.

You’ll go far 
with the right 

Swindon goes a long way to meeting big business's 
needs - by being a short way from everywhere that 

London is 50 minutes by train, Heathrow an hour 
by road. The opening of the M25 has slashed journey 
times to Gatwick. 

And the town's digital communication services 
make it one of the most advanced telecommunication 
centres in the UK. Facilities here include X-stream and 
will soon be enhanced by System X. 

No wonder Swindon is connected with some of 
the biggest names in national and international

Security tight 
as IRA issues 
statement on 
Bombing trial 

By Stewart Tendler, Crime Reporter 

Police across Britain yester- 
day tightened security against 
a possible Provisional IRA 
attack in the aftermath of the 
conviction at the Central 
Criminal Court of Patrick 
Magee, the Brighton bomber, 
and four other members of an 
active service unit 

They were convicted of 
planning to bomb four Lon- 
don targets and holds or 
beaches in 12 resorts and 
ports. The first bomb on a 
detailed calendar bad already 
been set by Magee ax the 
Rubens Hotel opposite the 
royal mews at Buckingham 
Palace when police moved in.

the IRA in Belfast published a 
statement yesterday, claiming 
that it would have issued 
warnings for the bombs the 
unit were to plant. The state- 
ment said that no final deri- 
sion on the campaign had 
been taken. 

A warning would have been 
issued for the bomb that 
Magee planted in the Rubens 
Hotel, it said, and added that 
the IRA had raised the alarm 
when bombs had been left 
dose to the scene of visits by 
the Queen, in Coleraine in 
1977 and at Sullom Voe, 
Shetland, in 1981. 

The statement said that 
newspaper accounts of the 
unit's plans ranged from the 
sublime to the ridiculous; the 
Royal Family, sporting events 
and exhibitions were not 

It added: "There is a mo- 
mentum behind our campaign 
which no British government 
can stop. We want peace and 
we appeal to the British people 
to put pressure on their Gov- 
ernment to withdraw from our 
country and allow Ireland to 
determine its own political 
future, free from outside 

The statement implies that 
campaigns in Britain wifi con- 
tinue. Special Branch officers 
and Scotland Yard’s anti- 
terrorist branch have no intel- 
ligence to suggest that a fresh 
unit has been smuggled into 
Britain, but no chances will be 
taken. Trooping the Colour 
ceremony in Whitehall tomor- 
row will involve a large uni- 
formed and plainclothes 
police presence and the area 
will be carefully checked be- 
fore the start of the 

A senior Yard officer said 
yesterday: “One can't rule out 
the possibility that the Provi- 
sional IRA will do something 
just to let us know they are still 
in business." 

Police believe, however, 
that if the IRA is planning a 
fresh attack it will be later in 
the year. There has not been 
any attack in Britain since 
Magee and four others were 
captured in a Glasgow flat a 
year ago, and it is thought that 
the arrests may have plunged 
the IRA infrastructure in Brit- 
ain into chaos.

Crimes show 7% increase 

The Government's law and 
order policies, set to become a 
significant issue at the next 
general election, suffered a 
serious blow yesterday with 
the publication of Home Of- 
fice figures showing a 7 per 
cent increase in recorded 
crime in England and Wales in 
the first quarter of the year 
and an leper cent rise in 

The figures compare the 
first quarter of this year with 
the same period of 1985. Last 
year's comparable increase in 
recorded crime was only 3 per 

There is already concern 
among Conservative MPs 
about crimes of violence 
which rose by a further 5 per 
cent and will be bound to 

reinforce calls for ma nd a t ory 
sentences for a number of 

The crime figure could have 
been even higher if the rate of 
increase had not slowed from 
12 to 6 per cent for sexual 
offences. A rise of 16 per cent 
in fraud and forgery in the first 
quarter of 1985 was turned 
into a foil of 3 percent. 

But hopes for success in 
combating burglary after a 
growth of neighbourhood 
watch schemes have 
beendashed. A foil of 3 per 
cent in the first quarter of 
1985 has been replaced this 
year by an 8 per cent increase. 

The Home Office statistics 
can be seen in a slightly less 
gloomy light by viewing 

changes during the 12 months 
of April 1985 to Match 1986. 

Even so the overall increase 
in recorded crimes over the 
corresponding previous 12 
months was 4.1 per cent and 
violence against the person 
rose by a more alarming 
6.1 per cent Robbery over 
this longer period wait up by 
13 per. cent and burglary was 
practically static. 

Recorded sexual offences 
increased by 5 per cent and 
nearly half of the rise came 
from more rapes:

He said he was deliberately 
avoiding making unrealistic 
pledges. The choices feeing the 
unions were limited and 

"Heavy unemployment, 
surplus labour and new tech- 
nology are all creating oppor- 
tunities for employers to try 
and break out from union 
influence," Mr Willis said. Mr 
Rupert Murdoch, chairman of 
News International, was a 
prime example. 

The unions had the choice 
of fighting to keep what they 
had or adapting to new condi- 
tions. Either way the conse- 
quences were not especially 

"If yon fight and lose, you 
lose everything. If you adapt 
you may still lose some things

win, he said, but the economic 
circumstances and new tech- 
nology were in the employers’

ments by News International 
that toe 5,500 strikers had 
dismissed themselves. He said 
the printers had been goaded 
into resisting the transfer of 
work to toe new plant at 

He said: "We have seen the 
ruthless and unprincipled op- 
portunism of News Interna-

law, their blatant tinkering 
with company structures to 
avoid liability and their total 
disregard for any serious obli- 
gation to their former employ- 
ees and their unions." -

mal talks ' with tire general 
secretaries of Sogat, the Na-

A group of senior j 
lawyers and professors of 
have put forward plans for the 
creation of the country's first 
national centre of legal 

They have submitted pro- 
posals to the senate of London 
University that its Institute of 
Advanced Legal Studies be the 
basis of a new, national “cen- 
tre of excellence for legal 
research" with a full-time 
director and funds to commis- 
sion and undertake 

At present the institute, 
which is run under the part- 
time directorship of Sir Jack 
Jacob, the former Supreme 
Court Master, is chiefly a 
library and postgraduate cen- 
tre. Bin it was mentioned by 
the University Grams Com- 
mittee in its recent rankings as 
“outstanding" and it is one of 
only two main law libraries, 
the other being the Bodleian, 
at Oxford. 

The proposals, which have 
been agreed in principle by the 
university's finance and gen- 
eral purposes committee, are 
being put forward by the 

five heads- of London 
University's law schools. 

Professor Jeffrey JowdL 
head of the law school at 
University College, said there 
had long been a need for a 
national research centre in this 
country. “We feel this is a 
major development and we 
are delighted to be part of it." 

There were one or two 
institutes, such as 
Oxford Centre for Socio- 
Legal Studies, but none that 
dealt with the ail the main 
areas of law. 

The proposals have yet to be 
approved by London 
University’s senate which will 
consider them chi July 9. They 
will involve a substantial in- 
crease in funding above the 
institute’s present grant of 
some £500,000 a year, but the 
plans are to tap the private 
sector for funds for " legal 
research, as well as to promote 
its library services to the 
profession and charge eco- 
nomic fees.

MPs seek dog fee abolition 

notes that ministers might 
find it “helpful" if it climbed 
down from the fence. 

It says that about three- 
quarters of the population are

A group of MPs yesterday Environment Minister in Its latest report, however,

emphasized that no decision 
had been taken about foe

Abolition was one option, 
be said, and added that he 
hoped it would be possible to 
announce a decision soon. 

Ministers are torn between 
taking the risk of enraging 
bodies such as tbe Royal 
Society for the Prevention of

ministers should instead con- 
sider giving local authorities 
the power to issue their own 

The money raised could be 
used, they suggest, to pay for 
employing dog wardens. 

The call from foe all-party

as ministers continued to fret 
over what to do about the

£3.87 million- to collect and

The United Grand Lodge, 
foe society’s governing body, 
said yesterday it had decided 
to remove references to physi-

Doctors recruited to De- 
partment of Health and Social 
Security or other medical 
advisory committees are rec- 
ommended not to accept the 
secrecy imposed under the 
Official Secrets Act over mat- 
ters where public health re- 
quires otherwise . 

The proposal comes in a 
letter in the British Medical 
Journal from Professor Geof- 
frey Rose, an eminent physi- 
cian who has also been a 
.member of numerous adviso- 
ry bodies. 

Professor Rose, of foe Lon- 
don School of Hygiene and 
Tropical Medicine, also asks 
foe British Medical Associa- 
tion to put pressure on Gov- 
ernment to exclude from the 
Act all those advisory bodies 
whose business is not related 
to national security. 

Professor Rose's call for 
action came after a statement 
by Mr.Barney Hayhoe, Minis- 
ter for Health, showing that 
“foe application of foe Official 
Secrets Act is far wider than 
most of us ever realized”. 

Some of the supplementary 
bodies shrouded by official 
secrecy were foe Advisory 
Committee on Gene Modifi- 
cation Therapy, foe Commit- 
tee of Medical Aspects of 
Radiation and foe Environ- 
ment. the Community Medi- 
cine Inquiry, foe Overseas 
Doctors Study Group, tbe 
Leprosy Opinion Panel, tbe 
Working Group on the Safety 
of Nuclear Magnetic Reso- 
nance Imaging, foe Small 
Grams Committee and 36 

Professor Rose said discre- 
tion and not foe Act should be 
the doctors' guide. The Act 
covered a widening range of 
politically sensitive matters , 
and no one could know in 
advance what might be classi- 
fied, perhaps retrospectively, 
as “official".

S Africa sanctions • Ulster assembly 

Thatcher: door must 
not be closed on 
further negotiations 

N Ireland may get new assembly 


driven i 

W — # 



Mrs Thatcher, the Prime Min- 
ister, stoutly resisted an invita- 
tion to lift what was described as 
her veto on economic sanctions 
against South Africa when Mr 
Peter Shore, shadow Leader of 
the Commons, sought her re- 

action to the report, just pub- 
lished, of the Commonwealth 

lished, of the Commonwealth 
Eminem Persons’ Group. 

We must not (die said) close 
the door on further negotiations. 
The Prime Minister said the 

Government was studying the 
report carefully and would be in 

report carefully and would be in 
touch with the Commonwealth 
and Britain's European and 
other economic partners. Seven 
Commonwealth heads of gov- 
ernment would be coming to 
London in August to discuss it. 
Mr Shore, deputising for Mr 
Neil Kin nock, described the 
EPG report as very sombre and 
referred also to the declaration 
of a state of emergency in South 

Is not plain to the Prime 
Minister (he went on) that bo- 
stance at Nassau last October 
was totally misjudged, and that 
political progress against apart- 
heid cannot be made without 
effective and concerted eco- 
nomic pressure on South Africa. 

Detailed measures need ar- 
gent consideration with our 

and whether she is now remov- 
ing her veto upon economic 
sanctions on which she has 
previously insisted. 

Has she or has she not 
decided to remove that veto? 
Mis Thatcher What he is 
complaining about is that we are 
going to consider this report 
carefully with our partners be- 
fore reaching conclusions. 

He knows full well what the 
conclusions state: “We are not 
' detentlining the nature or extent 
of any measures which might be 
adopted or their effectiveness." 

It is a report that has taken a 
long time to complete. I am not 
aware the phrase "economic 
sanctions" appears in the 

Mr Shore: The word 
"sanctions" has been used by 
leading members of the EPG. 
Paragraph 352 states: “We are 
convinced that the South Af- 
rican Government is concerned 
abouL the adoption of effective 
economic measures against it" 

If that is not the equivalent of 
sanctions, I do not know what 

Mrs Thatch pt He is complain- 
ing that we shall take great care 
in considering this report and in 
consulting the Commonwealth 
and our economic partners. 

The Labour Government said 
in 1977 after the Soweto debate 

Commonwealth partners. But 
the House and the Common- 

the House and the Common- 
wealth are entitled to know from 
the Prime Minister now whether 
she accepts the principle of 
economic sanctions against 
South Africa. 

Mrs Thatcher We have just 
received the EPG report and we 
are studying it carefully. There is 
time indeed for all concerned, 
including the South .African 
Government, lo consider the 

I shall be meeting the two co- 
chairmen later today. I think we 
must not close the door on 
future negotiations. The group's 
report recognized it was not 
their task to make specific 
proposals about measures. 

We shall therefore be in touch 
with our Commonwealth part- 
ners. our European partners and 
our economic summit partners 
to discuss this report. 

Mr Shore: That was a very 
equivocal, and. for her, a 
surprisingly unclear response to 
what was a unanimous report by 
a committee which spent six 
months at her personal request 
studying events in South Africa. 

The report has been available 
to virtually everyone for the past 
48 hours and she has had plenty 
"of time to consider not so' much- 
the detail of what we need to do 
but the principle of the matter 

Shore: Has Thatcher 
moved her veto? 

in the United Nations: “We 
voted against economic sanc- 
tions against South Africa, to- 
gether with France, West 
Germany, the United Stales and 
some other western countries 
because we do not agree that the 
for-reaching economic measures 
which the resolution calls for 
would produce the changes in 
South Africa which we would 
like to see." 

Mr Andrew Hunter 
(Basingstoke. Q: As the lady is 
not for turning, can we take it 
she will not torn aside from the 
view that further isolation of the 
South African Government and 
the imposition of sanctions null 
achieve many things, one of 

which win not be the creation of 
a more just and equitable soci- 
ety in South Africa? 

Mrs Thatcher We would wel- 
come a more just and equitable 
society in South Africa and 
condemn apartheid. We still 
believe we most hot close the- 
door on future negotiations and 
the group's basic approach of 
promoting dialogue and the 
suspension of violence remains 


We will consider this distin- 
guished report very carefully 
and consider it with our Euro- 
pean partners. Commonwealth 
partners and also with the 
governments of the seven indus- 
trialized nations. This is the 
right way to go about it before 
dashing into premature 

Dr David Owen, Leader of the 
SDP: Can the Prime Minister 
promise the House of Commons 
that when President Reagan- 
applies economic sanctions to 
South Africa she will not turn 
round and follow suit? When 
will she lead world opinion, 
instead of being led by the nose? 

Will she please now, in the 
light of the state of emergency 
which has been declared today, 
say she will be ready to stop 
direct inter-continental flights to 
South Africa? 

Mrs Thatcher: He is well aware 
these are conducted under legal 
contracts which means that 
there are specific legal obliga- 
tions in these contracts which 
cannot, plainly, be abrogated. 

I note be said in an article in 
The Sunday Times of March 24 
1985: “Total or even selective 
trade sanctions will not 
succeed.” (Loud Conservative 
laughter and cheers) 

Mr James Craigen (Glasgow, 
Maryhiil, Lab): When it comes 
to the crunch, is the Prime 
Minister prepared to break the 
Commonwealth rather than 
back stronger concerted mea- 
sures to break the pattern of 

Mrs Thatcher We shall be 
consulting with the Common- 
wealth. I think at the beginning . 
of August when the seven beads 
of government come to London 
for that purpose. I shall be 
seeing the two co-chairmen of 
the eminent persons group later 
this afternoon. 

; .The Government’s order 
i proposing dissolution of tire 
I Northern Ireland Assembly left 
! open the date for new elections 

Reverend Ian Paisley) even to 
talk with him about the position 

talk with him about the position 
of the present assembly had 
compelled him to reach the 
decision over dissolution with- 
out hearing their views. 

Dissolution did not conflict 
with the Government’s desire 
for devolved government, nor 
with hs commitment to the 

Anglo-Irish Agreement 

Devolution remained the 
Government's preferred option 
and he hoped a future assembly 
would be seen playing a respon- 
sible and valuable role in North- 
ern Ireland. The sooner that 
happened, the better. 

Meanwhile, the Government 
remained ready to discuss with 
all the constitutional parties the 
best way forward. 

■ in particular, (he said) I 
would urge the Unionist parties 
to- return to the House of 
Commons to argue their case 
and to take up the Prime 
Minister's offer to discuss with 
her the four matters proposed: 

• devolution and the possibil- 
ity of a round-table conference; 

• the fixture of the assembly; 

• arrangements for handling 
Northern Ireland business at 

• new means of consultation 
between the Government and 
Unionist leaders. 

Only if we are prepared to talk 
together and discuss these mat- 
ters (he continued) can we hope 
folly to play our separate but 
complementary roles in bufld-

Minister, said she was 
delighted that Rolls-Royce had 
won on merit an order to 
supply Cathay Pacific Airways 
with its RB21 1 5424D4 engines* 
for two Boeing 747-400s it had 
ordered with the option of 
seven more to come.

the Commons, following 
months of political boycott of 
the assembly and the virtual 
suspension of its work by tite

that the refusal of the leaders of

Where were the people of 
Northern Ireland to turn now? 

There would be those who 
wonld seek to represent the 
demise of the assembly as a 
consequence of the Anglo-Irish 

account with the respect i know 
he would wish to receive. 

Mr Enoch IfoweB (South Down, 

OUP): The two Unionist par- 
ties; as they were then repre- 
sented m the House, opposed in 
1982 the legislation establishing

land would consider it worth the 
price if the agreement contrib- 
uted to their livelihoods, 
environment, community ser- 
vices and civil liberties. 

If those things were seen to 
arise from discussions between 
North and Sooth, Roman 
Catholic and Protestant, would 
the people not denounce' the 
bickering of their politfcpnsi? 

When people cry for bread 
and they get a stone (he said), 
can we be surprised if they turn 
to demagogues, bullies and 
witcb doctors? 

Mr King said the assembly and 
ns committees had done useful 
work in their scrutinizing roles. 

I hope (he said) that we can 
consider the ways in which we 
might meet the concerns over 
the ways in which - Northern 
Ireland business is han dled.

important that people in North-

more of an immediate say in the 
administration of the Province. 

Under the present structure I 
exercise a degree of power and 
authority winch I think in a 
democracy raises very difficult 
issues indeed. I would rather see 
a greater authority and 
responsibility for those in the 
Province and I hope very much

Mr bn Gow (Eastbourne, Ck 
There is a paradox between his 
announcement of the suspen- 
sion, if not foe death, of die

cipal ta»5 was to present pro- 
posals for devolution for the 
Province - and saying today 
that the p refe r re d choice of foe

Even if that is foe preferred 
solution, would he not not 
exdude from his consideration 
that we should govern Northern 
Ireland similarly to 'foe nay in 
which we govern other parts of 
this kingdom? 

Mr lay We would seek to 

govern Northern Ireland as 
fairly, equally and impartially as 
we seek to govern other pahs of 
foe UK. But to suggest that 
involves . the total 
harmonisation of every struc- 
ture of government flies in foe 
face of experience. 

But it does emphasize he is 
prepared to stand up and argue 
for that and we do need, above 
all, people who are prepared to 
have foe courage to argue their

from this chamber but to come 
here and stand up and argue 
what is the best way forward and 
that iswhail lookto see.

Mr Mariya Rees (Leeds, Soufo

Insider deals: investigators 
given more powers 


A new clause was added to the 
Financial Services Bill, when its 
report stage was resumed in the 
Commons, 10 compel offshore 
intermediaries to cooperate with 
investigations into 
insider dealing on United King- 
dom markets. 

Mr Michael Howard, Under 
Secretary of State for Trade and 
Industry, moving the Govern- 
ment new clause, said it should 
prove a worthwhile addition to 
the powers of the investigators. 

If an offshore intermediary 
refused to cooperate ' with an 
inspector, the inspector might 
refer the matter to the court. If 
the court was satisfied that there 
was no reasonable excuse for the 
refusal, it might direct that the 
Secretary of State use his 

If the intermediary was not 
authorized, the Secretary of 
State might direct that the 
authorized businesses shall not 
transact specific hinds of busi- 
ness with it. Thus its access to 
the UK markets might be 
restricted or completely cut off. 
Contraventions of the direction 
would be a regulatory offence. 

If the intermediary was not 
authorized the Secretary of Slate 

might serve a notice applying a 
range of sanctions from restric- 
tions on its business to de- 

If an overseas bank, for 
example, could know the iden- 
tity of the principal behind a 
transaction on a UK market 
who might have committed a 
criminal offence but chose not 
to find out. then it was reason- 
able for that: hank to have 
restrictions imposed on its UK 

Mr Bryan Gorid, for the Oppo- 
sition. said they wished the new 
clause well and would watch it 
carefully to see how well it 
worked in practice. They could 
not be confident it would cover 
- every loophole and every situa- 
tion but it was an important 

Mr Anthony Nelson (Chich- 
ester, C) said he welcomed the 
extension of: powers in the Bill 
to deal more, toughly with 
insider dealing, which was more 
rife than recognized. It was 
difficult to detect and even more 
difficult to prosecute and 

They would: have to look - 
again at this problem if the 
incidence of insider trading 

• Sir WUliam Clark (Croydon 
South, C) moved a new clause 
which would establish a com- 

prehensive register of all those 
employed or proposing to be- 
come employed in buying, sell- 
ing or advising on life assurance 
-or collective ~ investment 
schemes such as unit trusts. 

He sax] they bad to have _ 
brack list and how could there be 
one without some sort of in- 
dependent register? If the Gov- 
ernment resisted this new clause 
he wanted an assurance that 
was -the Government’s opinion 
that the Bin would be sufficiem 
to protect the general public 

Mr Michael Howard said the 
new da use was unnecessary. 
Powers already in the Bill gave a 
substantial control over 
individuals in the investment 
business. The proposal would be 
expensive and this had to be 
balanced against the 
responsibility of assessing its 
value. He had measured the 
critieria and had found the 
proposal warning. 

However, he assured Sir 
William Clark that the 
Government would continue to 
keep the' mailer closely under 
review and that if evidence 
materialized that the 
Government’s judgement 
needed revision he would not 
dose his eyes to that.

All names go into the ballot 

■Hie Tory backbench filibuster 
which prevailed Mr Tam 
Daly ell (Linlithgow, Lab) mak- 
ing a strong attack on the Prime 
Minister last Friday has led to 
the Commons being allocated 
another - Friday to rfinnwc 
backbench motions. * • - 
Mr John Biffen, I -fad er of the 
House, said that he would 
arrange for a ballot to be held on 
private members' notices so as 
to- restore the lost Friday. 

Mr Alao WflHams, for the 
Opposition, complained tigrt in 

a new ballot there was at best 
only a one in two chance that a 
Labour backbencher would win 
it and a less than one in 500 
chance that it would be Mr 
Dalyell. The ballot which had 
already taken place should be 
reinstated. That should be en- 
sured in the procedure. 

The Government Chief Whip 
should be asked to use his 
Machiavellian powers to ensure 
that he keeps Tory MPs out of 
the ballot? 

Taking farmland out of production 



The Government was anxious 
to start discussions as soon as 
possible on two sets of ideas 
which it is considering for taking 
farmland out of production — 
known as set-aside schemes — in 
attempts to balance food 
production and consumption, 
Mr Michael Jopliug, Minister 
of Agriculture. Fisheries and . 
Food, said during questions iu 
the Commons. 

land out of production was that 
it ensured a more comprehen- 
sive countryside policy in a 
particular area. 

Mr Jopting agreed. The Gov- 
ernment believed that a set- 
aside scheme should be 
voluntary. Community-wide, 
cost-effective, and provide an 
alternative to those producers 
least able to cope with a 
restrictive prices policy. 

Mr Bryunar John, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on agri- 
culture; said such a scheme 
would be more easily achieved if

Expenditure by the European 
Community fat 1985 on the 
storage and disposal of products 
in structural surplus - cereals, 
sugar, milk products, beef and 
wine - was about £73 bUBoa, Mr 
John Gum Trier, Minister of 
State for Agriculture, Fisheries 
and Food, told the Commons. 
The comparable figure for 1988 
was about £4.7 billion or, tf 
inflation was taken into account,

Mr Edward Taylor (Southend 
East, C): £358 million is now 
spent every week by the Com- 
mon Market on du m pi ng ,

diture a shameful insult to •

Mr Gumtnen It is note sensible 
way to spend money. The 
Government's purpose is to 
sure that sarphtses are pulled 
down and Earn incomes pro- 
tected. it ought to be a triumph 
of agriculture because we have 

Government hopes that the British economy will 
produce enough new jobs to reduce unemployment in 
the medium-term are likely to be frustrated if the fore- 
casts of Individual employers based on present policies 
are borne out {Graham Searjeaat, Financial Editor, 

Changes in the pattern of employment in favour of 
part-time and women workers are also likely to be 
greater than previously thought, putting more strains 
on the labour market and creating a need for much 
more training. 

These are the main implications of a pioneering sur- 
vey of the expectations of more than 3,000 large and 
small employers of the trends in the numbers and type 
of employees they will need between now and 1990. 

The industry-by-industry study is the most com- 
prehensive ever conducted, covering about half of all 
present employment. 

It was inspired by Sir Austin Bide, then chairman of 
both Glaxo and BL, who formed the Occupations 
Study Group with the help of other leading employers 
In the wake of evidence that the recovery in jobs after 
the post-1979 recession was not following the usual 
pattern, because of structural and technical changes 
that were not fully understood. 

The study was carried out by the Institute for 
Manpower Studies, mainly in the second half of 1985, 
with questionnaires and interviews at the highest level 
in companies.

too ranch. 

Mr Brynmor John, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on agriculture: 
It is estimated that in five years* 
time the cereal surplus win rise 
to 80 millio n tonnes, a fivefold 
increase. Is it not time that the 
Agriculture -Council did other 
than month generalities and got 
down to solving that problem? 
Mr Gummef: That is what 
weald happen if we did nothing. 
The Agrfenltnre Council has 
already done a great deal, bat 
nothing tike enough. 

We now have a world hi which 
there is too modi food. 

Horse steaks, 
frogs legs 
or snails 

Daring Commons exchanges 
about the slaughter of horses, 
Mr Geoffrey Dickens 
(Littleborough and 

Saddfeworth, Q said: The 
French eat our horses and 
ponies as steaks. If we stopped 
eating their frogs and snails, 
they might consider not eating 
our horses and ponies. 
Mrs Peggy Fenner, Par- 
liamentary Secretary, Ministry 
of Agriculture, Fisheries and 
Food: 1 note his objection to 
horse-meat as a diet. By and 
large that. might be shared by a 
large number of people in this 
country, but I would not like to 
speak on behalf of those who eat 
grenouilles and escargots. 

The report, to be published 
later this month, concludes 
that production industries, in- 
cluding construction and ener- 
gy. will lose more than 
600,000 further jobs by 1990, 
but that service industries will 
create some 540,000 new ones. 

This implies an overall 
shrinkage of 125,000 jobs 
between 1985 and 1990. But 
the IMS emphasizes that this 
is a central forecast that could 
vary by up to 300,000 in either 
direction. The outlook could 
be better,for instance, if the 
optimism of new companies 
proves accurate, rather than 
being matched by the usual 
high death rate of infant 

Two large sectors — distrib- 
utive, financial and business 
services and leisure and other 
services — should between 
them provide 700,000 extra 
jobs. The main areas of job 
creation here are financial 
services, at present enjoying 
explosive growth, and the 
hotel and catering industry, 
where increased and more 
sophisticated tourism (for 
Bn to ns as well as foreign 
visitors) is allied with tbe 
trend for more eating out in 
restaurants and expansion of 
fast food chains. 

Much of the shift from 
production to service, howev- 
er, reflects the continued de- 
termination of large 
employers to- subcontract pe- 
ripheral pans of their business

halt the expected further mod-

also some evidence that ser-

count for more than half the 
jobs “created” in services and 
“lost” in production indus- 
tries. Cleaning services is one 
of the fastest growing indus- 

This process, in particular, 
has important implications 
for the changing structure of 
jobs. Within the overall 
changes, there will be a strong 
shill from big to small firms — 
which are expected to in- 
crease their share of the 
workforce by 700,000 — and 
in self-employment, which is 
forecast to grow by 300,000. 

The new jobs will not be 
suitable for the same people 
who held tbe lost jobs. The 
main increases are likely to be 
for part-time workers, over- 
whelmingly women. As a re- 
sult, the relative growth is in 
part-time work, which rose 
from 3 7 per cent to 2 1 percent 
of total employment between 
1979 and 1985 and will if 
anything accelerate, approach- 
ing a quarter of the workforce 
by 1990. In consequence, 
women could account for 
practically half the labour 
force by 1990 compared with 
45 per cent now and 42 per 
cent in 1979. 

This is a discouraging pic- 
ture for the Government 
Although the basic trends are 
exactly those anticipated by 
Lord Young of Graffham, 
Secretary of State for Employ- 
ment and the Manpower 
Services Commission, the Oc- 
cupations Study Group fore- 
casts suggest that as much as 
60 per cent of the extra jobs 
created by small companies in 
the service sectors will simply 
displace jobs in other, mainly 
larger companies, partly be- 

cause of the growth of subcon- 
tracting and partly because 
small firms are taking business 
from their larger rivals. 

In spite of the slowdown in 
the growth of the available 
Labour force (those wanting 
work) and the concentration 
of future growth in increased 
participation by women which 
has been projected by the 
Department of Employment, 
the OSG forecasts would still 
lead to a substantial rise in 
unemployment by the end of 
the decade on present policies. 
In particular, there would be a 
big rise in unemployment 
among men over 20. 

Only an unprecedented ac- 
celeration in the growth of 
new businesses ora noticeable 
cut in the numbers of some 
groups wanting work is likely 
to change this picture. 

The most encouraging fea- 
ture of the report is that many 
more young 

find work. At present, a 
disproportionate number are 
unemployed. This improve- 
ment ts in . part due to govern- 
ment measures, such as the 
Youth Training Scheme and 
the proposed reform of Wages 
Councils, which make young 
people cheaper to employ. But 
employers also favour taking 
on young workers because 
they are seen as more flexible 
and adaptable for training in 
new technologies and skills. 

The report is intended to be 
non-political and deliberately 
avoids drawing any policy 
conclusions from its employ- 
ment forecasts. However, in 
interviews with leading busi- 
nessmen, trade associations 

changes does not give strong 
support to either of the cur- 
rently fashionable theories of 
how to cut unemployment 
All the main manufacturing 
and other production sectors 
are expecting to shed more overs also cost jobs 

Interviews with leading in- 
dustrialists point to manage- 
ment attitudes as a greater ter 
to employment growth than 
economic policies. The les- 
sons of the recession have led 
managers to emphasize maxi- 
mizing short-term profits and 
cutting costs to stay competi- 
tive at the expense of more 
risky expansion. 

The spate of takeovers and 
mergers has accelerated this 
trend and has itself cost jobs. 
This is partly because take- 
overs lead to sharing of over- 
heads, often by the use of 
information technology, to in- 
crease efficiency. But take-

labour, some because of fac- 
tors specific to an industry 
such as new policies to cut 
farm surpluses or the decline 
in cigarette smoking, but 
mainly because they expect to 
be able to increase output 
without more labour, thanks 
to the use of new technologies, 
improved working methods 
and the breakdown of restric- 
tive labour practices. In most 
existing industries, introduc- 
ing new techologies does cut 
the number of jobs, but this is 
essential to remain competi- 

Many report surplus capaci- 
ty, especially in the process 
and engineering industries, 
people and but much ofthis is obsolete or- 
can hope to uneconomic, such as high cost 
coal mines. Much more was 
built to serve industries That 
have declined — such as com- 
ponents for domestic motor 
manufacture or steel for ship- 
building — or have suc- 
cumbed to imports because 
they became uncompetitive 
over a long period. 

While job would improve if 
economic growth were higher 
than the 2 to 3 per cent 
generally expected, there is 
little to suggest that a general 
injection of spending power 
through government policies 
would transform the picture. 

The biggest exception to 
this is tbe construction indus- 
try, where cuts in interest rates 
or a boost to public sector 

healthy ways. Mergers in the 
same industry lead to closures 
of overlapping branches or 
factories. Ana takeovers fi- 
nanced by expensive bank 
debt put pressure on compa- 
nies to close less profitable 
businesses to recoup some of 
the money quickly. This of 
itself points to the need for a 
tougher attitude to these kinds 
of takeover.

Support for the idea that

seen as most important to

ers in general acknowledge 
that government measures to

Injustice that leads to 
riots must be tackled, 
race board report says 

By Peter Emus, Home Affairs Correspondent 

Most of the conditions 
which make violent unrest 
likely to occur still remain 
after last year's loss of life in 
inner city disturbances, Mr 
Peter Newsara. chairman of 
the Commission for Racial 
Equality said yesterday. 

He was introducing a six- 
point plan in its annual report 
to remedy the injustice which 
the commission says starts 

High unemployment and 
disadvantage lie behind disor- 
ders but more is needed to 
make them rage, the report 
says. Riots occur when those 
suffering deprivation believe 
they are being unjustly treated 
and nothing can be done 
about it through the ordinary 
machinery of the law ana 
political change. 

The report refers to the 

serious riots in four inner-city 
areas in 1985 with deaths ana 
widespread suffering and per-

By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 

The £1 billion-a-year stale 
agency responsible for . the 
construction and upkeep of 
crown buildings- was sharply 
criticized yesterday by an alt- 
party group of MPs. 

A report from die environ- 
ment committee castigated 
the Property Services Agency 
for the way it operates a 
scheme for charging govern- 
ment departments rent for the 
office space they occupy: 

Under the Property Repay- 
ment Services system, brought 
in as an efficiency measure in 
1980, the agency acts- as the 
landlord, fixing charges and 
recovering Tents ...from 

. The scheme is intended to 
avoid waste of spacer but, the 
report says, it amounts to a 
“vast paper transaction" cost- 
ing £650,000 a year to admin- 
ister, and there is no means of 
knowing whether it is produc- 
ing the intended savings. 

The MPs say it ssems 
“extraordinary* 1 that no. meth- 
od of monitoring the scheme 
was set lipTvhen it was first 
introduced after the Rayner 

inquiry into Whitehall 
effraency. • : . 

The MPs abo emphasize 
shortcomings!* procedures at 
the agency that have led to 
serious overspending on 
building projects. • ' 

Outgoings for Derby CTOwn 
Court, for instance, were 
£2£ miIHcfa or 77 per cent 
over budget, the report .says, 
and the average overspending 
on 86 projects commissioned 
by the agency was 12 percent.

“We a^^t these are isolat-

Mr Jade Dunnert, Football 
League president,, won 
“substantial” libel damages in 
foe High Court in London 
yesterday over suggestions 
that he was delighted that his 
dub, Notts County, was rele- 
gated from the First Division 
because ft would cut costs. 

Mr Duimett and.two other 
:directors4 Mr John 
Mounteney and Mr Ralph 
Sweet, were said to have 
regarded the relegation as a 
“heaven sent” opportunity to 
reduce expenses, and behaved 
as if they would like to offer 
the team champagne. 

The allegations appeared in'

under the headline, Down the 
Hatch. The newspaper's pub- 
lishers, News Group Newspa-

editor, and Steven Howaril a

legal costs.

but he said; “If military police

group accused 
of blackmail 
by ‘Pik’ Botha 

From Michael Hornsby, Town 

The Sooth African Foreign 
Minister, Mr R.F. “Pik” Bo- 
tha, yesterday accused the 
Commonwealth Eminent Per- 
sons Group of trying to 
“blackmail” Pretoria into ac- 
cepting conditions to which 
no self-respecting government 
could agree. 

“We went out of our way to 
see them and to let them travel 
around the country. We felt 
that, if violence could be 
ended, that would be the 
sound barrier that had to be 
broken through,”’ he said at a 
briefing for local political 

“Bui they (the EPG) came 
back with a stricter definition 
saying violence would only 
stop^ as long^^ ^negotiations 

National Congress) lasted. No 
government could accept this. 
It was plain blackmail.” 

Asked about the threat that 
economic sanctions might 
now be imposed by the Com- 
monwealth, Mr Botha said he 
did not think they were 

“The Commonwealth coun- 
tries adjacent to us cannot 
apply sanctions. Let them try 
it,” he said. “Lesotho cannot, 
neither can Swaziland or Bo- 
tswana, nor can Zambia, Ma- 
lawi or even Zimbabwe. These 
are prominent countries 
which one would expect to 
apply sanctions.” ~ 

Speaking later at a press 
conference, Mr Botba_ also 
warned that Pretoria would, 
find it extremely difficult to 
allow another visit by a simi- 
lar group in future if . the 
Commonwealth imposed eco- 
nomic sanctions an South 

It had been a mistake, Mr 
Botha said, to give the EPG a 
deadline of mid-June to report 
to Commonwealth govern- 
ments. It was “a bit unreal-

and he had answered it on 
Monday. . 

“The South African Gov- 
ernment would welcome any 
effort or attempt aimed" at 
ending the violence and/or 
. facilitating dialogue and dis- 
cussion,” Mr Botha said. 

“But if the Commonwealth 
now continues with the intro- 
duction of sanctions, it mil be 
very difficult, if not imposst- 
- bkvfor this Government to 
allow another group, a repre- 
sentative group, of that orga- 
nization in this country.” 

The ETC's report, Mr Botha 
grudgingly allowed, was “far 
better than anything I have 
seen coming out of the United 
Nations in recent years, but 
that does not mean it is a good 

.Mr Botha then set out his 
Government's main objec- 
tions to the EPCs proposals. 

• The “key” problem was the 
suggestion that the ANC 
should be required only to 
“suspend” violence daring ne- 
gotiations with the Govern- 
ment. No negotiations could 
succeed “under the threat of 
violence”. . 

Pretoria insisted that the 
ANC should unconditionally 
renounce the use of violence 
as a means of achieving 
.political objectives. 

Mr Botha also accused the 
EPG of failingto acknowledge 
that there was a need for 
parties other than the Govern- 
ment ,to abandon “intimi- 
dation” as a weapon of 
political persuasion. “Opposi- 
tion to the Government is not 
the sole and exclusive cause of 
violence in this country,” he 

The EPG in its report had 
further failed to give a true 
picture of the ANC, Mr Botha 
maintained. The ANC, he 
claimed, had “publicly and

Top black leaders held in security crackdown 

From Ray Kennedy 

Among die hundreds of 
anti-apartheid activists de- 
tained in South Africa yester- 
day was Mr Aubrey Mokoena, 
publicity secretary of the Re- 
lease Mandela Campaign. A 
member of the national execu- 
tive of toe United Democratic 
Front, he has been detained 

without trial several times 
since 1974. 

He first mhw to political 
prominence at the University 
of the North — from which be 
was expelled ova- anti-apart- 
heid protests — as a founder- 
member of toe South African 
Students' Organization. 

He became a leading figure 

in the black consciousness 
movement in Soweto and was 
detained for seven months 
after the 1976 uprising. Six 
months after his release be 
was again detained without 
trial for 394 days. 

A further period of deten- 
tion without trial followed in 
1984, during die UDPs cam- 
paign against the constitution- 
al referendum and elections to 

the Coloured and Indian 
houses of the tricameral 

Another prominent activist 
detained yesterday was the 
president of the Azanian 
People’s Organization, Mr 
Saths Cooper. 

In 1976 he was jailed for six 
years after he organized pro- 
Freiimo rallies following 
Mozambique's independence. 

Mr Joe Clark, the Canadian 
External Affairs Minister, ac- 
cusing the South African Gov- 
ernment of “intransigence”, 
yesterday announced a series 
. of new economic measures 
aimed at apartheid. 

Mr Clark also told the 
Commons in Ottawa that, 
after the Commonwealth 
heads of government meeting 
early m August, Canada will 
be prepared to take more 
action — “in concert with the 
Commonwealth if possible, 
on our own if necessary”. 

The measures announced 
yesterday. Jinked to the report 
of the Commonwealth Emi- 
nent Persons Group, were: 

• Ending Canadian govern- 
ment procurement of South 
African products. 

• Banning the promotion in 
Canada of tourism to South 

• Allocation of an additional 
CanS2 million to a pro- 
gramme for educating and 
training blacks in South 

• Canada no longer to accept 
the non-resident accreditation

Mr Clark told the House 
yesterday that the Pretoria 
Government's declaration of a 
state of emergency again dem- 

onstrated its “intransigence” 
m the face of growing opposi- 
tion to its racial system. 

In Washington, the White 
House said it would read the 
EPG report “with interest”, 
but that the Administration 
had no plans to change its 
policy or view on sanctions- 

Mr Larry Speakes, the 
White House spokesman, said 
the US had not attempted to 
assess blame in the way toe 
EPG did. The Administration 
opposed sanctions and was 
against the measures recently 
voted by toe House of Repre-

The African National Con- 
gress said in Lusaka that toe 
declaration of a state of emer-

worsen toe crisis and increase 
resistance to white rule. 

The biggest Western trade 
union group, the International 
Confederation of Free Trade 
Unions, protested in Geneva 
at the arrest of at least 14 
prominent black union lead- 

In The Hague, the Dutch

Our work in South Afri- 
ca has been a moving 
personal experience. We 
arrived when there was 
carnage in .Alexandra. 
On the day of our final 
departure. Crossroads 
was on Are and a pall of 
smoke hung in the sky. 
We saw a country in 
. upheaval and witnessed 
great human suffering. Even as we write, 
the killings continue. 

It was clear that our task would be 
immensely difficult. Its success would 
depend, ultimately, on the good faith of 
the South African Government and on 
the cooperation of all significant sections 
of South African society. 

It was only because we were persuaded 
that, whatever the odds, this was a task 
worth attempting that we accepted, in 
the course of our successive visits to 
South Africa, and on becoming better- 
acquainted with the effects of apartheid 
and the scale of the country's antago- 
nisms. there could be little doubt that the 
alternative to a negotiated solution 
would be appalling chaos, bloodshed and 

We are concerned that the South 
African Government's rejection, in ef- 
fect, of our negotiating concept com- 
pounded by its armed aggression against 
Botswana. Zambia and Zimbabwe 
makes those dangers more imminent 
and the prospect of negotiations more 

We were able to travel freely to visit 
black townships normally not accessible 
to outsiders and to talk to a diverse 
spectrum of opinion including opposi- 
tion parties, trade unions, church lead- 
ers. businessmen, women's groups and 
ci-vil rights activists. In extensive discus- 
sions with the State President and many 
of his Ministers, we also gained valuable 
insights into the Government’s own 
thinking and future plans. 

The range of contacts we made, 
enabling us to understand the complex- 
ities of the situation, was probably 
unique: the frankness and the openness 
of the discussions unlikely to be replicat- 
ed in the near future. 

Our mandate was to foster a process of 
negotiation across lines of colour, poli- 
tics and religion, with a view to 
establishing a non-racial and representa- 
tive government It is our considered 
view that despite appearances and 
statements to the contrary, the South 
African Government is not yet ready to 
negotiate such a future — except on its 
own terms. Those terms, both in regard 
to objectives and modalities, fall far 
short of reasonable black expectations 
and well-accepted democratic norms and 

The objectives of any negotiations, as 
Commonwealth leaders agreed at Nas- 
sau, and as all the non- white people of 
South Africa as well as increasing 

numbers of whites demand, would be the 
dismantling of the apartheid system and 
and the erection of the structures of 
democracy in South Africa. 

We rejected as impractical the sugges- 
tion that the whole complex web of 
apartheid legislation be repealed as a 
prelude to negotiation; we were con- 
cerned to ensure, however, that there 
should be a Arm and unambiguous 
commitment by the Government to 
ending apartheid in order to provide 
integrity to the negotiating agenda and 
the negotiating process — as well as 
specific and meaningful steps taken to 
that end. 

It needs to be remembered that 
apartheid goes beyond institutionalised 
racial disrimination and economic ex- 
ploitation; it is primarily a means of 
keeping ultimate political and economic 
power in the hands of the white 
minority. Any reservations by the Gov- 
ernment about dismantling apartheid 
would inevitably and understandably be 
viewed by the vast majority as a ploy for 
perpetuating white power in a new guise. 

The Government told us categorically 
that it was prepared to contemplate 
negotiations with a completely open 
agenda, where everything would be on 
the table. However, in some respects, the 
open agenda appeared to be circum- 
scribed. Nevertheless, for the purposes of 
our discussions we gave the South 
African Government the benefit of the 

Wishful thinking 
by government 
on negotiations 

In the Government’s thinking, there 
were a number of non-negotiables; for 
example, the concept of group rights — 
the very basis of the apartheid system — 
was sacrosanct; the "homelands" created 
in furtherance of that concept would not 
disappear, but be reinforced with the 
emergence of an "independent” 
KwaNdebele;the principle of one man 
one vote in a unitary state was beyond 
the realm of possibility; the Population 
Registration Act would continue; and 
the present Tri camera! Constitution 
which instituionalises racism must be 
the vehicle for future constitutional 

From these and other recent develop- 
ments. we draw the conclusion that while 
the Government daims to be ready to 
negotiate, it is in troth not yet prepared 
to negotiate fundamental change, nor to 
countenance the creation of genuine 
democratic structures, nor to face the 
prospect of the end of white domination 
and white power in the foreseeable 
Aiture. Its programme of reform does not 

end apartheid, but seeks to give it a less 
inhuman face. Its quest is power-sharing, 
but without surrendering overall white 

in regard to the modalities of negotia- 
tion. the Government's position nas a 
considerable element of wishful think- 
ing. The Government is willkng and 
ready to negotiate with "responsible” 
leaders; if only violence and 
"intimidation” would abate, these lead- 
ers would be ready to come to the 
negotiating table to strike a deal. 
Although we were never told by the 
Government who these "responsible” 
leaders might be — indeed, the Govern- 
ment assured us it would not prescribe or 
limit the people's choice it could be 
inferred that prominent among them 
would be the “homelands” leaders 
whom the Government repeatedly urged 
us to see. With the exception of Chief 
Buthdezi the “homeland” leaders have 
no real political standing or following 
and would not, m our view, be credible 
parties in a negotiation to resolve South 
Africa’s deepening crisis. It is not for us 
to prescribe or advise who the parties to a 
genuine negotiation might be; but we 
noted as significant the Government’s 
allergy to our proposal that they should 
be the “true", “authentic” or 
“acknowledged” leaders of the people. 

Negotiations leading to fundamental 
political change and the erection of 
democratic structures will only be possi- 
ble if the South African Government is 
prepared to deal with leaders of the 
people's choosing rather than with 
puppets of its own creation. President 
Botha's recent statements expressing his 
determination to “break” the ANC bode 
ill for the countiy’s future. 

There can be no negotiated settlement 
in South Africa without the ANC; the 
breadth of its support is incontestable; 
and this support is growing. Among the 
many striking figures whom we met in 
the course ofour work. Nelson Mandela 
and Oliver Tam bo stand out. Their 
reasonableness, absence of rancour and 
readiness to find negotiated solutions 
which, while creating genuine democrat- 
ic structures would stiU give the whites a 
feeling of security and participation, 
impressed us deeply. If the Government 
finds itself unable to talk with men like 
Mandela and Tambo, then the future of 
South Africa is bleak indeed. 

The Government makes it clear that it 
did not regard the ANC as the only other 
party to negotiations. We agreed, but 
would emphasise that the ANC is a 
necessary party. The Government ac- 
knowledges this, if only by blaming the 
ANC for most of the violence. The open 
identification with the ANC through 
banners and songs, in funerals and in 
churches throughout the country, despite 
the risks involved, supports the widely- 
held belief that if an election were held 
today on the basis of universal franchise 
the ANC would win iL 

Whatever the truth of that assertion, 
we nonetheless recognise that black 
political opinion is not monolithic. If, 
therefore, the Government is serious 
about negoitia lions, it must create 
conditions in which free political activuy 
becomes possible, and political parties 
and leaders are able to fit notion effective- 
ly and test the extent of their popular 
support. Tragically, the whole thrust of 
Government policy has been to thwart 
such legitimate leadership from emerg- 
ing and destroy it where it does. 

Fatal to give 
a veto to the 
right wing 

Behind these attitudes lurks a deeper 
truth. After more than 18 months of 
persistent unrest, upheaval, and Idlings 
unprecedented in the country’s history, 
the Government believes that it can 
contain the situation indefinitely by use 
of force. Although the Government's 
confidence may be valid in the short 
term, but at great human cost, it is 
plainly misplaced in the longer term. 
South Africa is predominantly a country 
of black people. To believe that they can 
be indefinitely suppressed is an act of 

By pandering to right-wing anxieties 
and demands, the Government fortifies 
them, compounding its own problems 
and losing whatever initiative it may 
have possessed It is also in danger of 
foiling between two stools. Its promises 
of reform have created anxiety among 
certain sections of its supporters ana 
contributed to a growing white backlash; 
yet the reforms themselves have made 
little impact on black attitudes or 
aspirations - save to confirm the 
Government's implacable resistance to 
significant change. 

While right-wing opposition cannot be 
ignored, it would be fatal to give it a veto. 
Indeed we gained the impression that 
white opinion as a whole may be ahead 
of the Government in significant re- 
spects, ready to respond positively if 
given a bold lead 

We are left with the impression of a di- 
vided Government Yet even the more 
enlightened Ministers seem to be out of 
loudi with the mood in the black 
townships, the rising tide of anger and 
impatience within them, and the extent 
of black mobilisation. And so, of course, 
are the great generality of white South 
Africans only some ten per cent of 
whom, we were told, have ever seen 
conditions in a township. 

Put in the most simple way, the blacks 
have had enough of apartheid They are 
no longer prepared to submit to its 
oppression, discrimination and exploita- 

tion. They can no longer stomach being 
treated as aliens in thier own country. 
They have confidence not merely in the 
justice of their cause, but in the 
inevitability of their victory. Unlike the 
earlier period of unrest and Government 
attempts to stamp out protest, there has 
been during the last 18 months no 
outflow of black refugees from South 
Africa. The strength of black convictions 
is now matched by a readiness to die for 
those convictions. They will, therefore, 
sustain their struggle, whatever the cost 

The campaign against collaborators, 
and the ruthless elimination of agents of 
white authority, will continue ... the 
writ of the Government will be increas- 
ingly circumscribed Inter-black rivalry 
and violence . . . will grow, making the 
task of negotiating a settlement even 
more difficult. Political upheaval and 
social unrest will accelerate the flight of 
capital and professional skills and the 
economy’s downward spiral 

Amidst all this gloom the quality of the 
country's black leaders shines through. 
Their achievement in bringing about 
popular and trade union mobilisation in 
the face of huge odds commands respect 
Their idealism, their genuine sense of 
non-racialism, and their readiness not 
only to forget but to forgive, compel 
admiration. These are previous assets 
which a new South Africa will need; they 
may be lost altogether if the Government 
continues to shrink from taking the 
necessary political decision . . . 

The Government feces difficult 
choices. Its obduracy and intransigence 
wrecked the Commonwealth's iniiiatve, 
but the issues themselves will not go 
away, nor can they be bombed out of 
existence. It is not sanctions which will 
destroy the country but the persistence of 
apartheid and the Government's failure 
to engate in fundamental political 

For all the people of South Africa and 
of the sub-region as a whole, the certain 
prospect is of an even sharper deefine 
into violence and bloodshed with ail its 
attendant human costs. A racial confla- 
gration * with frightening implications 
threatens. The uncoordinated violence 
of today could become ... a major 
armed conflict spilling well beyond 
South Africa’s borders. In such circum- 
stances the entire economic fabric of the 
country would indeed be destroyed. Up 
to now those responsible for the armed 
resistance . . . have shown great regard 
for innocent lives. Unless the cycle of 
violence is broken, full-fledged guerrilla 
warfare as practised in other parts of the 
world, in which “soft” civilian targets 
become prime targets in a reign of terror 
and counter-terror, may come to pass. In 
the absence of significant moves to break 
the cycle of violence we see the prospect 
as inevitable and that in the very 
foreseeable future. 

What can be done? There may be no 

course available that can guarantee a 
significantly more peaceful solution. But 
the question of further measures imme- 
diately springs to mind. As the Nassau 
Accord makes dear. Co m mo nw ealth 
Heads of Government have agreed that, 
in the event of adequate progress not 
having been made m South Africa within 
a period of six months, they would 
consider further measures. 

While we are not determining the 
nature or extent of any measures which 
might be adopted, or their effectiveness 
we point to the font that the Government 
of South Africa has itself used economic 
measures against its neighbours and that 
such measures are patently instruments 
of its own national policy. 

We are convinced that the South 
African Government is concerned about 
the adoption of effective economic 
measures against iL If it comes to the 
condusion that it would always remain 
protected from such measures, the 
process of change in South Africa is 
unlikely to increase in momentum and 
the descent into violence would be 
accelerated ... 

chance to 
avert bloodbath 

From the point of view of the black 
leadership, the course now takes by the 
world community will have the great 
significance. Hat leadership has already 
come to the view that diplomatic 
persuasion has not and will not move the 
South African Government sufficiently. 
If it also comes to believe that the world 
community will never exercise sufficient 
effective pressure through other mea- 
sures . . . they will have only one option 
remaining: that of ever-increasing .vio- 

The question in from of Heads of 
Governments is in our view clear. It is 
qoi whether such measures will compel 
change; it is already the case that their 
absence and Pretoria’s belief that they 
need not be feared, defers change. Is the 
Commonwealth to stand by and allow 
the cyde of violence to spiral? Or will it 
take concerted action of an effective 
kind? Such action may offer the last 
opportunity to avert what could be 
the worst bloodbath 
since the Second World 

We hope that this report 
will assist the Common- 
wealth — and the wider 
international communi- 
ty — in helping all the 
people of South Africa 
save themselves from 
that awesome tragedy. 


A searchlight 
in apartheid’s 
dark tunnel 

The following is an extract 
from the Commonwealth 
Group of Eminent Persons’ 
report on South Africa: 
Apartheid: dismantle or re- 
form? None of us was pre- 
. pared for the full reality of 
apartheid. As a contrivance of 
social engineering, it is awe- 
some in its cruelty. !t is 
, achieved and sustained only 
through force, creating human 
misery and deprivation and 
blighting the lives of millions. 
The degree 10 which apartheid 
has divided and 
compartmentalised South Af- 
rican society is nothing short 
of astounding. 

The living standards of 
South Africa's white cities and 
towns must rank with the 
highest anywhere: those of the 
black townships which sur- 
round them defy description 
in terms of "Jiving standards". 
Apartheid creates and sepa- 
rates them; blck and white live 
as strangers in the same land. 

Crossroads, on the outskirts 
of Cape Town, is in many 
ways a symbol of the apart- 
heid system. Here, in defiance 
of the "homelands” policy 
and the Group Areas Act and 
of persistent attempts to re- 
move them forcibly to their 
allotted areas, thousands of 
families have chosen to squat. 
When we visited it in March, 
the community, despite severe 
hardship, was slicking togeth- 
er. Its families were crowded 
into crude shanties, fashioned 
from discarded sheets of cor- 
rugated iron, and lined with 
cardboard and polythene in an 

attempt to keep out the cokL 
The shanties have neither 
sewage systems nor electricity, 
and are serviced only by a few 
communal water taps. Yet in a 
triumph of the human spirit, 
the people were clean, the 
shacks generally tidy. 

Beyond Crossroads, we saw 
for ourselves the state of 
overcrowded, and much of it 
ramshackle, black urban hous- 
ing — in townships such as 
Johannesburg's Soweto, where 
perhaps almost two million 
people were living in housing 
designed for 800,000. 

By contrast, most white 
suburbs were pictures of afflu- 
ence. well away from the 
sights and sounds of black 
townships. For the greater 
part, whites are able to go 
about their daily lives without 
tfny direct exposure to the 
conditios in the townships. 

The pattern of segregation 
we first witnessed in Cape 
Town was even more stark 
away from the city. In tire 
.Karoo, pleasant, white form- 
ing centres each have their 
own satellite black and col- 
oured townships, squalid res- 
ervoirs quarantined from 
white areas but from which 
they draw labour. The neat 
white town of Cradock has its 
swimming pool; in the 
neighbouring black township 
of Lingelihle children have 
only a cesspit in which to play 
and keep cool. This story was 
frequently repeated. 

The apartheid system not 
only sustains white political 
dominance: it is equally de-

Capo Province 

signed to keep blacks econom- 
ically weak and confined to 
low-paid jobs. It excludes 
blacks from significant owner- 
ship of land, severely restricts 
their business opportunity 
and ensures cheap labour for 
white-owned industry, form- 
ing and commerce. Hie 
"homelands" are in reality 
rural slums, reservoirs of la- 
bour for the "white areas”. 

For apartheid to end, the 
"homelands” policy must be 
abandoned. Yet even while we 
were there, the Government 
reaffirmed that 

"independence” will be grant- 
ed to KwaNdebele before the 
year's end. 

One area where change was 
most manifest is that of 
public amenities. When we 
first arrived the hotels we used 
where simply designated 
“international” as an excep- 
tion to apartheid's segregation 
of facilities. Latterly all hotels 
have been exempted and are 
now allowed to admit people 
of all races as residents or as 
casual patrons of their restau- 
rants and bars. Cinemas are 
increasingly being 


The question remains, does 
all this make any real differ- 
ence to the impact of apart- 
heid on the lives of blacks? To 
the casual visitor, apartheid 
may appear to be on the way 
out In its essential elements, 
it remains very much intact.

Yet it is illuminating to note 
that the abolition of a docu-

than anything else, this mure

to us the current acute lack of 

The way in which the new 
Constitution is framed is also 
instructive, as the Govern- 
ment daims that this intro- 
duced “power-sharing" 
among the groups concerned 
Yet, stripped to its barest 
essentials, no legislation of 
any consequence can be en- 
acted without at least white 
acquiescence. Neither of the 
other groups holds this power 
of veto. 

In our view the various 
reforms undertaken or fore- 
shadowed to date must be 
viewed against the back- 

ground of a determination not 
to give up white cointrol. The 
harshness of apartheid, in 
many of its manifestations, 
has been and is being softened. 
But the essential pillars 

White community attitudes: 

We recognise the huge diffi- 
culties of adjustment feeing 
the white community. As the 
editor of one leading English 
daily put it recently: “It will 
not be easy for many whites to 
settle down to what is their 
inevitable destiny in a multi- 
racial country where the popu- 
lation is three-quarters black”. 

There was thus, we sensed, a 
widely-felt need for distrac- 
tions within the white com- 
munity. The passion for sport, 
especially rugby provided 
such an opportunity. On the 
arrival of a “rebel" New 
Zealand rugbv team, a Rugby 
Board official was reported as 
exulting that rugby had 
"changed the face of South 
Africa” by driving Nelson 
Mandela from the front page 
on to page six. As '’white” 

South Africa basked in the 
illusion of an imagined inter- 
national respectability, the 
death toll continued to mount 
unabated m the townships and 
tn the “homelands”. 

The response of whites to 
the presence of overseas 
sportsmen, whether represen- 
tative qr not. brought home to 
us the impact and importance 
of the international sports 

Misguided notion 
that changes 
can be resisted 

boycott of which the 
Gleneagles Agreement is a 
vital part. 

The lengths to which the 
South African authorities are 
prepared to go in elevating the 
importance of visiting teams, 
and the huge financial induce- 
ments they offer, reveal their 
craving for supposed interna- 
tional recognition. That alone 
demonstrates the continuing 
need for this form of pressure, 
including the strict observance 
of the Gleneagles Agreement 

Of course, big business has 
for some years favoured re- 
form. Needing a more skilled 
and mobile labour force to 
service South African industry 
as the economy has moved 
away from a simple depen- 
dence on mining and agricul- 
ture. business has called for 
increased spending on educa- 
tion, better housing and the 
abolition of influx control. 

Clearly a numnber of Afri- 
kaners. including some who 
trace their roots tack over 300 
years to the original Clutch 
Colony, feel their whole future 
threatened and see no country 
which might match up to their 

Some of tiiem are turning to 
the misguided notion that 
their power to subdue blacks 
by using the full power of the 
security forces renders them 
sufficiently strong to resist 
fundamental change. They 
dose their eyes to the simple 
focL acknowledged by Gov- 
ernment and business alike, 
that both whites and blacks 
separately have it within their 

power to destroy the country. 

Thus in recent months the 
country has witnessed the 
emergence of a growing and 
increasingly assertive extreme 
right wing as Afrikanerdom 
begins to fragment under the 
cumulative weight of the pres- 
sures we have described. 

This phenomenon is not 
altogether surprising. For two 
generations, whites in South 
Africa have lived as beneficia- 
ries of apartheid in a system 
engineered by a political party 
which constantly asserted 
white supremacy. 

When they witness an ap- 
parent change in Government 
theology with the rhetoric of 
total white control giving way 
to talk of power-sharing, a 
backlash of some description 
is inevitable. But just as the for 
right is a creation of the 
National Party so, too, must it 
accept responsibility for deal- 
ing with iL The need for 
courageous leadership has 
never been greater. 

Certainly, whatever the 
threat from the extreme righL 
the Government can still rely 
on carrying the majority of the 
while community if h takes 
bold decisions to bring peace 
and prosperity to the country 
as a whole. 

Indeed there is a growing 
number of whites, a number of 
whom we met. who are 
“ahead” of the Government 
and see the peaceful eradica- 
tion of apartheid as the only 
hope. Our impression in this 
regard is also borne out by a 
number of recent opinion 
polls. Dr Alex Boraine in his 
speech of resignation in Par- 
liament. just before our first 
visit to South Africa, called on 
those he knew to be in the 
ruling National Party and 
discontented with the 
Government’s progress to- 
wards reform, to stand up and 
be counted 

Nevertheless, it remains the 
case that many whites genu- 
inely entertain fears about 
thier future in any new dispen- 
sation. We found a keen 
awareness of this among re- 
sponsible black leaders, to- 
gether with an 
acknowledgement of the need 
to allay them.

The Commonwealth group 
says it is a “tragedy" that the 
South African Government, 
as a matter of policy, has 
deliberately built up a picture 
of the African National Con- 
gress as “an organisation dom- 
inated by communists, 
wedded to creating a Marxist 

Stare m South Africa". The 
report continues: 

Early iri June, the Govern-: 
merit.. in -a mass publicity 
booklet entitled “Talking with' 
the ANC" insinuated that- 
Nelson Mandeb himself is a 
communist and that 23 out of 
30 members of the ANCs 
national Executive are either 
members or active supporters 
ofihe South African Commu- 
nist Party. 

The issue of violence: 
Throughout our work in 
South Africa, the issue of 
violence cropped up again and 
again. It U, in a way, central to 
the political debate in the 
country. The Government de- 
mands of its opponents a 
renunciation of violence or 
a “commitment to non- 
violence" — as a precondition 
to negotiation; its opponents 
say their violence is reactive, 
ami call upon the Govern- 
ment to abandon its violence 
first. Where does the truth lie? 

All Governments have co- 
ercive powers, and regard the 
maintenance of law and order 
as their first duty. If the 
Government of South Africa 
was a democratic government, 
its claims in this regard would 
command some respect. 

But the situation in South 
Africa is different: the objec- 
tives of. the South African 
Government are different; 
and the rules and conventions 
governing the use of state 
power are different. It is 
important that these differ- 
ences should be clearly under- 
stood if the issue of violence is 
to be viewed in proper 
perspecii ve. 

the Government riding rough- 
shod over the wishes and 
traditions of the people affect- 
ed, necessitated coercion by 
the Slate in a manner and on.a 
scale which* reveal the inher- 
ent violence of the system. 

The making of “while" 
South Africa required a num- 
ber of Constitutional change . 

First, non-whites . enfran- 
chised under the 191D;Union 
had to lose the vote. This- was 
achieved, in the face of strenu- 
ous opposition by the Govern- 
ment packing the Senate and 
so subverting a Supreme 
Court judgment; ... 

Second; because the Afrika- 
ner wanted to believe zhat he 
was acting from convictions of 
- righteousness, a number of 
fictions had lo be created. The 
first was to the effect that 
blacks were not South African 
at all: rather they belonged to 
one or another of the 
“homelands", according to 
their tribal origins, language or 
cultu re, even though there had 
been much inter-marriage and 
fading of tribal roots iwht the 
move to the cities. 

As a consequence, to dale, 
some eight million blacks 

have been stripped of their 
South African citizenship, to 
become, in the South African 
legal system, foreigners in 
tbier own land. 

• Recently.: however, this ap- 
proach has bent modified to 
die extent that citizens of 
“homelands" who live perma- 
nently. in“white" South Africa 
may have their South African 
citizenship : restored. About 
three million blacks stand to

We probed the thinking (of the

F rom the hpgfaning w 
recognized the essen- 
tia! significance in any 
political settlement of 
one man. Nelson Mandela. 
Imprisoned these last 24 
years, latterly In Follsmoor 
Prison, he is an isolated and 
toady figure, bearing his in- 
carceration with courage ami 

(He) can be said to repre- 
sent aH those imprisoned, 
detained, banned, or in exile 

for their opposition Mr 

Mandela is himself a political 
prisoner. Nelson Mandela is a 
symbol for blacks, not only at 
their lack of political freedom 
but of their straggle to attain 
it He is a potent inspiration 
for ranch of the political 
activity of black Sooth Afri- 
cans. (He is) a legend in his 
own lifetime. 

The call for his freedom has 
developed into the centrepiece 
of tiie demand for a political 
settlement. It is the shorthand 
for the proposition that, as his 
daughter Zindzi conveyed it, 
“there is an alternative to the 
inevitable bloodbath." 

But we also recognize that, 
for some whites, he represents 
something rather different — 
fears which, if anfoamled, are 
real nonetheless. They iodide 
the belief that Nelson 
Mandela is a mpn of violence 
and that violence conld not be 
contained on his release. 

Most of these fears have 
been fuelled by the 
Government's own campaign 
against Mr Mandela and the 
ANC (African National Con- 
gress). To that extort, they an 
self-induced; bat they are 
nonetheless real for all that 
and cannot be ignored . . . 

With each month and year 
of (Mandela's) further incar- 
ceration, the difficulties of the 
Government will grow. While 
fit at present, he is a man of 67. 

It would be wise to heed the 
words of Soren Kierkegaard: 
“The tyrant dies and his role 
ends: the martyr dies and his 
rule begins". . 

tiona Lists came In more than 
one colour . . Jie pledged him-

place ... be recognised the 
fears of many white people, 
which had been intensified by 
Government propaganda, bat 
emphasised the importance of 
minority groups befog given * 
real sense of security in any. 
new society in South Africa. 

That desire for goodwill was 
palpable. The Minister of 
Justice . . . was present at the 
start of ora* second meeting 
and Mr Mandela pressed him 
to remain, saying he had 
nothing to hide. It was his 
strongly stated view that if the 
drcmnstances conld be created 
in which the Government and 
tbe ANC could talk, some of 
the problems which arose 
solely through lack of contact 
could be eliminated. 

We were impressed by the 
consistency of (Mr Mandela’s) 
beliefs. He emphasized he was 
a nationalist, not a 
communist ... his principles 
indoded tbe necessity for tbe 
unity and political emancipa- 
tion of all Africans in the land 
of their birth .. . 

Nelson Mandela: the dangers of him becoming a martyr. 

The group approached the 
(two) meetings with Mr 
Mandela with, another mea- 
sure of care. It was impossible 
not to be aware of the mytholo- 
gy surrounding him but eqnai- 
- ly, we were determined that it 
should not cotonr oar impres- 
sions or influence oar 

We were first struck by his 
physical authority - by his 
immaculate appearance, his 
apparent good health and his 
commanding presence. In his 
manner he exuded authority 
and received the respect of all 
around him, inrinHmg the 
gaotots. That in part seemed 
to reflect his own philosophy 
of separating people from 

His authority clearly ex- 
tends throughout the national- 
ist movement, although he 
constantly reiterated that be 
could not speak lor his col- 
leagues in the ANC; that, 
apart from his personal view- 
point, any concerted view must 
come after proper conciliation 
with all concerned; and that 

his views could only carry 
weight when expressed collec- 
tively through the ANC. 

There was no visible dis- 
tance of outlook, however, 
between Nelson Mandela and 
the ANC leadership in Lusa- 
ka. He was at pains to pomt 
oat that his own authority 
derived solely from his posi- 
tion within the organization. 

W e found his atti- 
tude to others 
outside the ANC 
reasonable and 
conciliatory. (He) was con- 
scious of the divisions which 
had arisen among the Mack 
community. Nevertheless he 
was confident that, if he were 
to be released from prison, the 
unity of all Mack leaders, 
indnding Chief Bnthdezi, 
conld be achieved. 

Nelson Mandela took care 
to emphasize his desire for 
reconciliation across the di- 
vide of cotonr. He described 
himself as a deeply-committed 
South African nationalist but 
added that South African na- 

O nr fourth impress ton 
was that Nelson 
Mandela was a man 
who had been driven 
to armed struggle only with 
the greatest reluctance, solely 
in the absence -of any other 
alternative to tbe violence of 
the apartheid system and nev- 
er as an end in itself. It was a 
coarse of action which, he 
signed, had been forced upon 


We accept that the release 
of Nelson Mandela presents 
the South African Government 
with a difficult 
dilemma . . . there, is a grow- 
ing realization in Government 
circles that any benefits of 
incarceration are outweighed 
by tbe disadvantages winds 
daily become more apparent. 
Tbe Government expressed 
the fear that his release might 
result In an uncontrollable 
explosion of violence. 

We do not hold this view. 
Provided the negotiating pro- 
cess was agreed, Mr 
Mandela's own voice would 
appeal for calm. We believe 
bis authority would secure 
it ... we all agreed that it was 
tragic that a man of his 
outstanding capabilities 
should continue to be denied 
the opportunity to help shape 
his country's future . . .

In his message, read by the

“We're going to see if we 
cannot persuade them to join

said. “And, if nothing is done, 
then we'll make the decision

He again asserted that the

observed it. it was a flawed

He was also equivocal when 
asked about Mrs Margaret

as advocating a tourist rush in

is.” Then he appeared to 
endorse a judgement by the 
US Ambassador to Britain 
that London was one of the 
safest dues in the world. 

He said it was too early to 
decide whether to build a 
replacement for the shuttle 
Challenger as he was still 
studying the Rogers Commis- 
sion report. He believed the 
US should go ahead with a 
new arbiter. 

He did not blame anyone at 
Nasa for the accident it was 
born of a “carelessness that 
grew out of success”. 

He again appealed to Con- i

Nicaraguan rebels. Delay was 
deadly and played along with

of death threats 
by ‘inhuman’ Contras 

Eight West German hos- 
tages freed by US-backed 
Contras in Nicaragua have 
said that they frequently 
feared for their lives during 
their 25 days in captivity. . . 

After their release, they told 

oFthreals to kill them Ifffiey 
did not keep marching, some- 
times 20 miles in a day; of 
shots fired past them to dis- 
courage thoughts of escape; of 
nights spent in the open in 
heavy tropical rain; and of 
diarrhoea, sickness and hun- 
ger from which they also 
feared they might die. . 

Their general treatment fry 
the Contras had been “in- 
human*’, they said. Herr Sieg- 
fried Ruetlin, who was already 
ill with hepatitis when the 
ordeal began, said a gun Had 
been held to his head one 
morning to force him to 
continue to march after he had 
told his captors that be was ' 
too weak to go on. 

But the captives said in a 
prepared statement that they 
did not wish to protest so 
much about their own treat- 
ment as against what they 
called the “murderous attack" 
on the village where they had 
been working as volunteers 
building homes for Nicara- 
guan peasants uprooted by the 
guerrilla war. 

The Contras had killed men 

From Alan Tomlinson, Mungu 

and women indiscriminately 
during a dawn raid on May 17 
at Jacinto Baca, near Nneva 
Guinea in the south-easioftbe 
country, the hostages aiipg^. 
“We saw for ourselves how 
cruel they are," Fraukia As- 
trid S teller said. 

Another of the four women 
the aroup, Fraulein 

Reishard Zimmer, described 
how the Contras, belonging to 
the main antJ-Sandraista rebel 
organiza t ion, the Nicaraguan 
Democratic Force, used the 
hostages as human shields to 
escape from the village under 
fire from its defenders after 
the attack. 

Asked to respond to charges 
by the Contras and a United 
States government official 
that the West Germans had 
been armed and in military 
uniform at the time of their 
cap ture, Fraulem Zimmer 
said: “This is. false. We are 
civilian volunteers who came 
to Nicaragua to try to rebuild 
what the Contras had de- 
stroyed. We were never armed 
at any time." 

Most said they wished to 
cany on their work, which had 
been continued in their ab- 
sence by other West German 
volunteers, known as 
“internationalists", of whom 
they estimated there were now 
about 300 in.Nicaragua.

Argentina’s economic medicine 

Strikers turn down 
Alfonsin’s cure 

From a Correspondent, Buenos Aires 

As Argentina’s praised eco- 
nomic stabilization pro- 
gramme, file A astral Plan, 
completes its fust year, work- 
ers and farmers are waging 
strikes against the Govern- 
ment's tax and incomes 

The first phase of the 
unorthodox plan — from June 
14 1985 to April 4 this year — 
curbed a runaway inflati on 
rateof more than 30 per cent a 
month, using wage-price con- 
trols and monetary reforms, 
fiscal discipline and increased 
tax collection amt pi^c ser- 
vice charges. 

The General Confederation 
of Workers (CGT) has called a 
24-boor general strike- for 
today in protest against . “» 
year of smothering family 
economies". In a stateme nt 
last week it was rhnwwl that 
the plan had depressed popu- 
lar consumption and gave a 
warning of “social explosions” 
if the policies continued. 

Two big farm organizations 
called their members baton 
strike on Monday and Tues- 
day this week, demanding the 
efimihation of export taxes on 
agricultural products. 

For the 2%-year-oid Gov- 
ernment of President Alfonsm, 
today’s general strike, the 
sixth since the return to 
civilian rale, is only one of a 
series of battles with, the union 
movement Unable to reach an 
agreement on basic minimum 
salaries, the Government de- 
creed a wage rise of &5 par' 
cent on May 7. This was 
rejected by the unions, who 
have since suspended the ne- 

gotiations and refused to at- 
. tend the annual International 
Labour. Organization meeting 
now taking place in Geneva. 

The CGT leader, Sefior Saul 
Ubaldini, said last week: “We 
workers broke with dictatorial 
regimes, but with democratic 
authorities we only suspend 
conversation". In spite of the 
conciliatory tope of that re- 
mark, wage agreements are 
unHkety in the near fame. 

At the root of the conflict are 
public sector wages, which 
. have fallen considarabiy m the 
past year as the- Government 
sought to rein m its., fiscal 
deficit. Recent figures show 
tfratlhe deficit has faUen to 2*6 
per cent of. gross domestic 
product in the first trimester of 
1966; down from 15 j& percent 
for 1983. :• 

The four hugest .unions , in 
Argentina are. made up of 
public administration employ- 
ees who will wield great influ- 
ence in negotiations over the 
“norraatizatian” of the CGT, 
which before the end of the 
year is to return to the 
operating procedures that pre- 
vailed before the mifitary took 
over government. 

Wage pressures are less 
strong in the private sector, 
where the combination of ex- 
tnHiffidal agreements and 
overtime have pushed salaries j 
up by 15 to 20 per cent. 

The increase in purchasing 
power has been strongly re- 
flected in the rise in basic food 
purchases. Meat consumption 
is at an historic high of about 
2201b per person per year, in 
spite of relatively Ugh prices.

Employers and unions assail Hawke 

From Stephen Taylor 

A call by Mr Bob Hawke, 
the Prime Minister, for Aus- 
tralians to work harder for less 
was attacked on all sides 

While business leaders dis- 
missed the economic policy 
review outlined by Mr Hawke 
in bis televised address on 
Wednesday as rhetoric devoid 
of substance, trade union lead- 
ers — whose agreement with 

Mr Hawke’s Labor Govern- 
ment on prices and wages has 
been the cornerstone of the 
policy — warned that they 
would not accept' some of his 
new proposals. 

Mr John Howard, Leader of 
the Opposition, seized on the 
address as “the biggest fizzer 
since Halley’s Comet" and. 
having accused Mr Hawke of 
avoiding him in Parliament, 
challenged him to a television 
debate on the economy. 

Mr Simon Crean, president 

of the Australian- Council of 
Trade Unions, a post once 
held by Mr Hawke, warned 
bluntly that the unions would 
not accept further discounting 
of wage increases 

The main employers’ group, 
ihe CAL said that Mr Hawke 
had offered only generalities 
and promises when action was 

Press reaction was also uni- 
formly critical-The Financial 
Review said that the fireworks 
promised by Mr Hawke had 

amounted to no more than a 
damp squib. 

Wall Street was said to be 
awaiting the outcome of the 
annual premiers' conference 
today — at which state govern- 
ments will be consulted on 
measures to reduce spending 
— before passing judgment. 

There was some comfort for 
Mr Hawke in the latest statis- 
tics showing a further slight 
fall in unemployment, down 
to 7.S per cent from 8.2 per 
cent in May last year. 

If we suddenly took away 
fertilizeisjt could be the worst thing 

since sliced bread. 

Could a loaf of bread really cost so 
much more without fertilizers? 

You can imagine how that affects the price 
of a loaf of bread. 

Judge for yourself. . 

, . Fertilizers are a major contributor to 
Bri tain’ s ability to feed herself. 

Forty years ago we were forced to 
import a huge proportion of our food. And 
we had to pay for it. We could only manage 
to produce a mere half of what we needed. 

"today, thanks to fertilizers (and, of 
course, technological advances in other 
fields), farmers can produce virtually all 
the essential food we need This despite an 
increase of something like 8 million people 
to feed, and -despite losing thousands of 
acres of good farming land each year to 
houses, factories, airports and roads. 

The price of food 
would soar without them. 
Fertilizers do more than simply 
increase crop yields and livestock output; 
they reduce the cost of food production — 
by a dramatic 70% in the case of wheat 

If we had no fertilizers, the price of 
food to the consumer would automatically 
increase; a loaf of bread would cost consider- 
ably more than at present The efficient 
use of fertilizers by farmers has played a 
vital role in keeping all food prices down. 

Without them, food imports would 
rise considerably, with an unpleasant 
impact on our balance of payments. 
Agriculture's direct contribution to our 
gross domestic product — around £5.000 
million in 1985 — would drop, making 
matters even worse. 

normal cycle of plant nutrition required for 
healthy growth. They increase the fertility 
of the soil, as animal manure does. 

. But whereas manure can only deliver 
a haphazard range of nutrients, fertilizers 
can be tailored to suit specific plant types, 
and timed exactly to suit each stage of 
growth. All in all, the benefits of fertilizers 
to plants are an economic benefit to us all. 

What better reason for Britain’s 
farmers to make the most of them, and for 
ICI to take pride in being Britain’s leading 
fertilizer manufacturer. 

Of course, the current surpluses in 
production resulting from recent agricul- 
tural policy present a new challenge. But 
the farmin g industry has a proven record 
of successful adaptation to change.

The Foreign Secretary, Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, last night 
acknowledged that there were 
“anxieties and uncertainties" 
in Hong Kong after the joint 
declaration by Britain and 
China under which the colony 
will be handed back to China 
in 1997. 

But he denied Britain had 
lost interest in the colony since 
the agreement was signed. He 
said the declaration did not 
provide all the answers or give 
the people of Hong Kong 
everything they might want 

“But it has created a strong 
diverse framework within 
which answers can be found to 
the problems of the future," be 

“Hong Kong people will be 
able to go an earning their 
living as they do now — by 
trade, hard work and enter- 
prise. They will continue to 
enjoy the same freedoms and 
civil rights. They can look 
forward to living in the same 
way and in the same sort of 
society as they do now." 

Sir Geoffrey praised the role 
of the Chinese Government in 
discussions to implement the 
agreement He said: ^They 
have shown vision and hnagi- 
nathm and are displaying good 
will in tackling the implemen- 
tation of the joint declaration."

to the tarmac, face 
down, pointing 
away from the han-

klaxon echoes across the hot. 
dry lakebed. No one without 
clearance may look upon the 
best kept US military secret - 
a jet-black dumpy looking

remote Nellis Air Force Base 
in Nevada. The stubby black 
shape is an American spy 
plane being readied for anoth- 
er test flight. 

Half an hour later, Ameri-

mock Soviet target strain over 
their screens for an attacking

echoes from a bird, but they 
are lost in the radar noise.

been the point when the 
Americans decided it was time 
to build a radar-invisible aero- 
plane. Much work had already 
been done. German scientists 
used techniques in World War 
Two to protect a submarine's 
“snorkel” or breathing tube 
from radar detection. Alter the 
war, engineers found that 
certain aircraft shapes and 
equipment gave particularly 
strong radar echoes. 

This plane is so important 
that a new classification, 
"Royal Secret”, way above 
"Top Secret", was invented to 
protect it - but not from the 
toy manufacturer in Illinois 

who has caused a furore by 
producing a plastic model kit 
claiming to be the Stealth 
bomber, though the Pentagon 
says any similarities are “coin- 
cidental or guesswork”. 

The “toy trauma” has 
served to raise anew the issues 
— political, military and eco- 
nomic — surrounding a project 

so secret that until recently it 
did not exist officially; only a 
handful of adm inistrators and 
engineers were in the know. 

Affectionately known as 
“Harvey” after the six-foot 
invisible rabbit that haunted 
James Stewart in the film of 
the same name, the first 
aircraft flew as long ago as 
1975. A full squadron has been 
operating as spy planes for 
more than two years. The 
success of the work can be 
gauged by supremo Robert S. 
Cooper’s recent comments to 
a House sub-committee. 

“These techniques are the 
most revolutionary aeronau- 

tics technology since the in- 
vention of the jet engine and 
the swept wing. It includes 
reducing radar, infrared, 
sound, visual and other ob- 
servable characteristics. Cou- 
pled with electronic warfare 
and medium and long range 
weapons, it provides a highly 
lethal system able to survive 
any threatening environment 
It allows one to shoot at an 
opponent from the dark with-

of an aircraft, the materials 
from which it is built and the 
electronic jamming equip-

techniques are not new but 
their importance became dear 
after war in the air went

This knowledge was built 
into the U-2 and SR-71 Black- 
bird spy planes (which were 
therefore the first such 
“aircraft”) and the Tomahawk 
and air-launched cruise 

T he Boeing, Gru- 
mman. Lockheed, 
Northrop, Rockwell 
and Vought corpora- 
tions all continued 
research and began to fly half- 
sized remotely piloted planes. 
A few technical papers even 
appeared in print. After the 
1973 debacle in the Middle 
East, it was decided to build 
several full-size experimental 
planes, designated XST. 
Lockheed led the way and in 
August 1977 their engineers 
concluded that a radar invisi- 
ble aircraft was possible. 

The Pentagon acted quick- 
ly. The research budget was 
increased tenfold overnight as. 
a DARPA project under the 
code-name “Have Blue”. The 
work was classified “Royal 
Secret” and. the CIA even 
retrospectively classified re- 
ports already published and 
tried to plug early leaks of 
information. The project 
moved to a remote, CIA-run 

secret airfield known as the 
“Ranch” at Groom Lake near 
Indian Springs Air Force Base, 
about 30 miles northwest of 
Las Vegas, Nevada, and dose 
to the t bombing ranges at 
Nellis Air Force base. 

These ranges allowed the. 
rapid development of ideas 
and in open competition a 
Lockheed design by the flam- 
boyant Clarence “Kelly” 
Johnson came out streets 
ahead of the others. It had 
flown undetected through aU 
the Nellis targets. 

Security was intensified and 
an operational design was 
developed for a reconnais- 
sance-fighter, based on a 
Lockheed demonstrator. This 
was designated the F-19- Auro- 
ra or CSIRS (Covert Surviv- 
able In-weather Reconn- 
aissance Strike) aircrafL 

About 20 aircraft a year are 
being built and the first secret 
F-19 squadron was formed in 
early 1984. The F-19s can be 
flown to any US or NATO 
base unseen — inside a C-5 
cargo jet From there they can 
leave at night and in bad 
weather, if possible, on recon- 
naissance nights over targets 
too sensitive to risk the loss of 
the more vulnerable U-2 and

They may well now operate 
occasionally from the RAF 
base at Mildenhall in Suffolk, 
which is used by the American 
Air Force. The F-19 operates 
between two bases to cross a 
specific target — the plane 
would never take off and then 
retrace its path to the same 

cancelled With the success on 
the Nellis ranges, the Penta- 
gon decided to hedge its bets. 
It chose to build 100 improved 
B-lBs while a new bomber was 
being developed for the 1990s. 

With the first reconnais- 
sance aircraft flying, designers 
turned their attention to a 
desperate Pentagon need —for 
a bomber to replace the ageing 
B-5Z Several expensive de- 
signs developed m the 1960s 
and 70s became obsolete at 
once thanks either to new 
Soviet fighters, missiles or 
advanced radars. Even the B-l 
swing-wing bomber was so 
easily detectable that it was- 

Surprisingly, more informa- 
tion’ is available about this 
new bomber than the F-19 spy 
plane. It consists of a flying, 
delta wing with no fuselage or 
fins and was designed by the 
‘Northrop corporation in tan- 
dem with Boeing and 
Vought Delta wings always 
show the lowest radar echo 
and Northrop engineers had 
worked on two flying wings in 
the late 1940s. 

They are also expert in the 
use of composite plastic mate- 
rials and designers of the latest 
boxes of electronic counter- 
measures. Hie original con- 

tract to build a prototype 
plane was for $7 Jlufikm (£4.7 
billion) and it should fly by the 
end of next year. 

The plane probably Iras a 
wingspan of abont- 17S feet 
and weighs in at 180 tonnes. It 
is powered by four General 
Electric F101 engines, used in 
thefr low temperature modb to . 
reduce the aircraft's heat 

The engines are buried 
deeply within a thick whig, fed 
by curved intakes and with 
Venetian blind exhausts sup- 
plying directed jets to help 
control the aircraft There 
may be no conventional con- 
trol surfaces on the plane at all 
— thereby removing another 
source of radar echoes. 

The whole delta outline is 
smooth and even the cockpit 
consists of small windows 
barely rising above the wing’s 
upper surface. The pilot may 
use a television camera on the 
landing gear to land. 

The Stealth bomber is at 
the centre of a major political 
and financial row in 
Washington. Its opponents 
are pressing for more 
details to justify a cost of 
nearly S300 m3B©n for 

each of DO planes. 

To have these planes 
operational by 1991 with a 
prototype only flying in 
1987 mast be very tight 
tinting. The plane is 
dearly a considerable risk bat 
the Pentagon befieve it is 

worth taking. If ft works it

The Mexican Amateur As-

tion of two Mexicans — one of 
whom was educated at 
Stoueyhurst public schooL 

Otherwise, all the players in 
the five teams which made up 
the league until 1910 were 
British expatriates who had 
made their fortunes in mining 
and insurance:

Sweepers roamed the streets, 
not the football fields. But for 
a glorious decade, from 1901 
to 1910, England were 
Mexico's undisputed “inter- 
national champions^. 

In December of 1901, a 
team of English expatriates 

played a team of Scots, the 
first organized football match 
in Mexican history. The fix- 
ture was to be repeated once a 
year for the next nine years, 
England winning every time 
to secure whal became known, 
a little grandiosely, as the 
International Cup. 

The English-language news- 
paper of the time, the Mexican 
Herald , records that the inau- 
gural match, held in the 
decorous surroundings of the 

Reforma Cricket Club, was an 
unusually acrimonious afiair. 

“Englishmen won accord-

was registered” read the head- 
line. Clearly written fry a

whose shoulders, we are made 
well aware, lay the blame fra 
the 3-2 defeat handed out to 
“the Caledonians" by “the 
Sons of Albion".

“The referee was evidently 
at sea as to the rules and more 
than one ofhis decisions had a 
very doubtful look”, wrote the 
embittered correspondent 

Victorious sqnad: England, the International Cap winning team of 1905 

Order, however, was appar- 
ently restored after the game 
when “the ladies of the 
Reforma Club gracefully 
handed round cups of tea to 

the weary players”. 

The Reforma Cub still 
exists and, keeping up the old 
Connection, an Fw flfainrl team 
which came to Mexico last 
year did their training on the 
dub grounds. 

The pitch for that first game 

had been. sown with English 
seed, the ball - meeting

tions — hadbeen shipped over 1

The blazer worn by the 
controversial referee appears 
to have been borrowed from 

the youngest of the En gland 
players, Robert Blackmore, 
who wore it at his public 
. school in North Wales. 

The same blazer, with the 
same breast pocket public 
school insignia, was to become 
pan of the official kit worn by 

T he first dub of all to 
have been founded, by a 
matter of weeks appar- 
ently, was the Pachuca Athlet-

maintain the English connec- 
tion. Pachuca lost a crucial 
home match two weeks ago, 
putting paid to their chances 
of promotion to the First 

After the game the local fens 
rioted. Scores were, injured 
and at least three police cars 
were overturned and set on 
fire.. Things were different in 
1903. After Pachuca lost 5-1 to 
Reforma, the winners offered 
a lavish banquet at a Mexico

A revolution is begin- 
ning to take place in 
school timetables 
up and down the 
country. The school 
day. until now an immovable . 
fixture, starting at, say 8.40am : 
and ending at 3.30pm, is being 
compressed into a shorter 
space of time by headteachers 
faced with staff who have- 
refused to undertake lunch- 
time supervision. 

Called variously the 
“ContinentaP, the com- 
pressed or the shortened day , 
the new schedule is being 
adopted by increasing num- 
bers of schools. Some are 
using radical surgery andopt- 
ing for an 8.30am to 2J5pm 
day, others are chopping their 
lunch hour in half to enable 
children lo go home at 3pm. 
No one knows how many are 
doing h but the trend is dear 
and most parents, teachers 
and children like the change. 

At Bentley Wood School for 
gnls in Middlesex, classes now 
start soon after 8.40am and 
end at 3pm, half an hour 
earlier than previously. Mrs- 
Jill Mensem, who has a 14- 
year-old daughter at the 
school, supports the change. 
She says h will mean bet- 
daughter can travel home in 
daylight m winter and have 
longer in the evening for. 
humework and sports 

The head, Mrs June Lumb, 
introduced the compressed 
day as a direct result of the 
teachers’ pay dispute- Because 
her staff were refiishra to 
supervise the 720 girls at 
lunchtime; the job /ell to her . 
and her two deputies. It: was 
an impossible task. - . . - 

“I .had to write and tell * 
parents that I could not take 
responsibility for what then- 
daughters did at luncht ime”, 
she said, in tbe paSTBentfey" 
Wood girts were forbidden to 
leave die schooT groUnds^al- 
lunchtime. Tbe- pay dispute 

There will be two commute 
breaks in both of which a hot 
lunch -will be served. Approval 
for the reform was given this 
week by Mr Richard Clark, 
county education officer for 
Hampshire- (A ballot of par- 
ents showed 75 per cent ra 

Others are simply trimming 
their day by compressing the 
lunchbreak along the lines of 
Bentley Wood. Most of the 
schools introducing reform 
are thought to be secondary 
schools, but a primary school 
in Cheshire has also taken the 
plunge. It is Park School, 
Runcorn, run by Mr David 
Ogg who has chopped the day 
by up to 45 minutes. 

Although the pay dispute 
was the main trigger. Mr Ogg 
was also responding to com- 
plaints from parents who said 
the lunch break was too long, 
that their children disliked 
being out of doors for as long 
as I hour and 1 5 minutes in all 
weathers and that they came 
home dirty. 


For ani against: Left, June Limb, head erf Bentley Wood School, who has introduced the “compressed day”; and Christine 
Nartfcam, with ho- sons Charles and Thomas. She feels it will affect extra-curricular activities 

of rapes in Stanmore and girls’ 
schools tend id attract -lonely 
men in white mackintoshes. 
The idea of shortening; the 
lunch break to. prevent girts 
going astray came from.- the 
parent/teacher associated and 
was seized upon- by Mrs 
Lamb. Parents were consult- 
ed: four wrote in to express 
their opposition and the same 
number were in favour. - 
So last summer the change 
■was brought m as a temporary 
measure. The-'initial new pat- 
tern oftwoshort breaks in the 
day did not work and left the 
staff jet-jagged. Something 
more". like ...the; traditional 

stead of attending assembly, 
which, now takes place at 
11.25am at the end of moifr 
ing lessons. Then there is -a 
half-hour lunch break from 
il.4Sam to 12.15pm and af- 
ternoon lessons follow , 

Mrs Lumb says the change 
has brought important educa- 
tional benefits. “Starting work 
first thing in the morning sets 
a good workmanlike atmo- 
sphere to the day, and we feel 
that the quality of lessons has 
improved’*, she said. 

When the final rumblings of 
the teachers* pay dispute are 
over and staff resume out-of- 
school dubs and sports, Mrs 

atmosphere for these activities 
should be much better because 
those not interested will have 
gone home, and those who

temptations that were in their 
way : and the dangers they 
could gel into.”

Some European countries operate what is known as

pattern, hot French schools tend to start at 830am, 
break for lunch break between 1130am to 130pm and 
dose at 430pm. Within this pattern there is 
considerable variation. 

In Denmark schools are Open from 8am to 2pm; in 
West Germany pupils generally attend .classes 
between 730am to 130pm or 8ara to 2pm; and in Italy 
children have-lessons from Sam to 2pm. or 830am to 
.230pm, without a lunch break. 

ot everyone is 
keen on a short- 
ened day. At 
Brighton Hill 
School in 
Basingstoke, Hampshire, a 
proposal by the headteacher to 
introduce a Continental” day 
was rejected by staff The idea 
was for the school to begin at 
8.30am and -to finish, at 2pm 
with one 25-minute break. 

' Parents, were unemhusias- 
tic. Mrs -.Christine Nortbam, 
who has an 1 1-year-old sop at 
the school, said it would mean 
children missing out on lunch- 
time clubs. "Arid what hap- 
pens to those with working 
mothers who are not at home 
to check that they do their 
homework?”, she asked. Blit 
.the most important argument 
against the rescheduled day, 
she said, was that it was being 
introduced into schools with- 
out any research into its 
educational benefits. 

"It’s pure chance if it works 
well because it has not been 
proved that it is better for 
children. I think it will make 
the difference between* what 
independent schools and state 
schools can provide even 

greater. At independent 
schools, children have a full 
school day with games and 
dubs. But. in state schools, 
where teachers are not pre- 
pared lo go back to running 
dubs, and there is not much 
lunch break, all children will 
get is the tore bones of 
education, and this widens the 

No clear pattern has yet 
emerged of a compressed 
school day. Some schools, 
thought to be a minority of 
those wanting change, such as 
Robert May’s in Odiham, 
Hampshire, will be introduc- 
ing a- “Continental" day of 
moming-on.ty education, be- 
ginning at 8.30am and finish- 
ing at 2.15pm this September. 

ost parents like 
the shortened 
day, he said. 
“They can give 
their children tea 
early or take them out shop- 
ping. At school the children 
are much better behaved in 
the afternoon after a shorter 
lunch break, and the juniors 
can get down to work.” 

The Department of Educa- 
tion and Science has no plans 
yet to collect information or 
commission research on the 
issue, but the National Associ- 
ation of Head Teachers has 
received so many inquiries 
from members that it has set 
up a working party. 

Hampshire has also estab- 
lished a working group to look 
at acceptable conditions for 
reforming the school day, 
particularly as it feels the 
money allocated for school 
meals supervision by the Gov- 
ernment is inadequate. About 
five out of 100 schools in the 
country are thought to have 
rescheduled the school day. 
“It began as an expedient and 
bas now become an 
experiment", said Mr Clark, 
of Hampshire. 

Both working party reports 
should be pioneering docu- 
ments. providing some facts 
and policy guidance in these 
uncharted waters. 

Why fathers can

that the game of Trivial

One of the nuggets inescap- 
ably enshrined in public con- 
sciousness is the feast day we 
are working up to now at fever 
pitch — Father’s Day. 

I know that I am risking 
obloquy by questioning an 
institution. Nevertheless I 
have informed those of my

themselves to be hoodwinked 
by the propaganda involved in 
this exercise to forget h this 

This was not a popular 
decision. It created confusion

I referred to Father's Day 
as a feast. It sorely is a feast 
of consumerism, pressuring 
children to buy, buy, buy, 
using the pocket money given 
them by their fathers. Take 
the matter of cards. Leave 
aside the fact that they are 
probably the most profitable 
merchandise in existence 
square inch for square inch. 
They take np two stances for 
Father's Day. Either they 
contain sticky and sickly 
sentiments that if voiced in 
public by child to father 
would have father leaping in 
direction of child with either a 
thermometer or a s traitjacket; 
or they adopt a matey, slight- 
ly numchy approach that 
would have father leaping 
towards child with poker in 
hand. My family have been 
well warned what to expect if 
I bear as much as a rustle of 
card slipping into envelope. 

Consider presents. I resent 
the concept of fatherhood 
being exploited to create an 
upsurge in turnover of 
aftershave, socks, china mugs 
in the shape of public person- 
alities, and bleepers for

New-born babies wet then- 
nappies 20 times m 24 houis; 
at the age of a year, theft- 
parents are still having to cope 
with seven wet nappies a day. " 
For the majority of parents, 
nappy rash is & more impor- 
tant problem than the rarer 
paediatric conditions which 
receive more publicity. 




Dr David Atherton of Great 
Ormond Street ' Children's 
Hospital, writing in Mims 
magazine, explains that not all 
skin troubles in the nappy area 
.• are due to napkin dermatitis. 
The majority are due to one of 
four causes: ample contact 
, dermatitis; atopic eczema, - 
r / seborrhodc dermatitis and 
.“. napkin psoriasis. Although the 
‘ differential diagnosis between 
them is difficult, the treatment 
' and prevention is the same. 

Babies vary in their ahility 
to withstand prolonged wet- 
. ling but- to prevent a rash in 
: any child with a sensitive skin, 
the nappy should ideally be 
checked every hour during the 
- day. Quality disposable nap- 
pies are as good as washable 
• ones. Contrary to wbat the 
old-fashioned nanny would 
. have taught, the rashes are less 
: common if the nappy is 
machine, rather than hand 
washed: “biological" deter- 
gents should be avoided, ahd • 
. the nappies should be tumble 
rather than air dried. A nappy- 
free hour or two a day- is also 
helpful to babies.

the cause of secondary 
infection. . 

As.well as the four common 
causes of-nappy rash, doctors 
ha veto be oa the look-out for 
'two other, conditions which 
mimic it: zinc deficiency 
which, if hot diagnosed and 
treated, . undermines the 
child’s immunity system, and

Hospital Doctor reports on 
the latest operation, intro- 
duced into this country from 
America by Dr Chad Rostron 
of Leicester Royal Infrnfiary. 
The new operation, called 
epikeratoplakia. consists of 
the preparation of the host 
cornea, including the cutting 
of a groove around its edge 
into which the donor graft can 
be slotted before being sutured 
into place witb 20 stitches. 
The two corneas start to 
integrate in days and within a 
year the nerves have regrown 
into the new cornea so that 
sensitivity is restored. 

At each nappy change the 
skin should be washed and 
carefully dried before applying 
a water-repellent emollient.

Owen’s new 


How does David Owen intend to 
heal the rift with the Liberals over 
a replacement for Polaris? With 
the ideal emollient, I can now 
reveal: the setting up of a joint 
working party to examine all 
possible options. David Steel has 
already hinted in public that he 
might be prepared to go along with 
just such a move. At his joint press 
conference with Owen on Wed- 
nesday night he accepted that the 
parties could not go into an 
election campaign without spe- 
cific answers to questions about 
Polans and its replacement What 
remains to be seen is whether be 
can steer the idea of a working 
party past his unilateralist wing. 
Among the tasks that would need 
undertaking, of course, would be 
an examination of the technical 
and financial possibilities of 
Owen's own pet scheme: a sea- , 
based cruise missile to keep 
Bmian nuclear. I 


The Education Secretary has more 
to worry about than I thought 
(Diary yesterday). The Oxford and 
Cambridge Examination Board 
turns out to be only one of five 
boards with responsibility for the 
new GCSE Religious Studies sylla- 
bus (Midlands Examining Group), 
which invites pupils to write 
essays on personal experience 
options, including homosexuality 
and fornication. Parents should 
also blame the University of 
Cambridge Local Examination 
Syndicate, the East and West 
Midlands Regional Examination 
Boards and the Southern Univer- 
sities Joint Board. 


Picture the embarrassment of 
German MEP Hans-Gerd Teo ti- 
ering when he realized that his 
lunch guests, a group of Afghan 
Islamic freedom fighters, were 
being served with pork. Apologiz- 
ing profusely, he rushed to the 
Strasbourg kitchens to demand an 
explanation, to be assured that the 
offending dish was not pork, but 
veal. Deeply suspicious, the Af- 
ghans pushed their meat to one 
side. Since they are also teetotal ; 
they will have* achieved the rare 
distinction of turning up their 
noses at Eurocrat hospitality.

insurmountable problem for the

Re: selections 

Meanwhile, more work for law- 
yers, I predict, following my story 
on Monday about the expiry of 
Labour's reselection deadline. Al- 
though party rules put a deadline 
of three years from the last general 
election on reselection. Labour's 
Walworth Road HQ said this 
week that MPs who have not yet 
faced reselection will not be 
imposed automatically on their 
constituencies unless there is a 
snap genera] election. Legal ac- 
tion. however, could be on the 
cards if Sydney BidwelL Robert 
Kilroy-Silk, and Gerry 
Berm ingham are now deselected 
in breach of the rule book. John 
Evans, in St Helens, has already 
said he will voluntarily face 
reselection once the national exec- 
utive committee's inquiry into the 
constituency is over. To date, only 
six Labour MPs have fellea foul of 
the round of reselections -Ernie 
Roberts. Norman Atkinson. Mi- 
chael McGuire, Alec WoodalL 
John Forrester. Michael Cocks, 
facing likely deselection, has an- ! 
nounced he will not stand again, j 


After 10 years, Ladbroke's £40,000

that the organizers have found

rounds is that Ladbroks was

soccer's Canon league and 
cycling’s Milk Race. A company 
spokesman was quick to deny this, 
pointing out that even if news- 
papers knocked out the name, the 

BBC were terribly good about

ment is expected within the next 
three weeks.- -- PHS 

The recent advertising campaign 
by The Economist, which showed 
part of a page of its style-book, was 
sufficiently intriguing for me to 
ask for a copy of the whole thing, 
which they kindly sent I propose 
to discuss it today, but first I had 
better explain, for my less ink- 
stained readers, what a news- 
paper's (or publisher's) style-book 
is. Its most obvious use it so 
ensure typographical and verbal 
consistency; in The Times, for 
instance, the style-book reminds 
us that we use double quotation 
marks, we put the names of plays 
and books in italics and we refer to 
trades unions, not trade unions. 

Obviously, such rules, though 
essential (it is said that there are 1 7 
ways of spelling Gadaffil are 
largely arbitrary, like the rule of 
the road, but good style-books go 
on to give good advice about 
matters less straightforward but 
more important, from instruction 
in the meaning of billion (it used 
to depend on which side of the 
Atlantic you were, but we now all 
agree that it is a thousand million) 
to the difference between lire and 
liras. The very best style-books go 
further, and provide something 
tike a guide to writing good 
English, a miniature version of 
Fowler or Gowers. And I must say 
that The Economist's version is a 
truly excellent one; for its scope, 
its good sense, its vigorous defence 
of the English language and the 
charm with which it is presented, I 
can think of no one who dads in 
words, from the most experienced 
author to a schoolboy embarking 
upon an account of Whax / Did in 
the Hollidays, who could foil to 
benefit from it. 

It starts, very properly, with 
Orwell's famous six precepts 
(from Politics and the English 

• Never use a metaphor, simile 
or other figure of speech which 
you are used to seeing in print 

• Never use a long word where a 
short one will do. 

• If it is possible to cut out a word, 
always cut it out 

• Never use the passive where 
you can use the active. 

• Never use a foreign phrase, a 
scientific word or a jargon word if 
you can think of an everyday 
English equivalent 

• Break any of these rules sooner 
than say anything outright bar- 

Then the compiler (anonymous, 
like everyone at The Economist), 
lakes up his scythe and sets to 
work. Strike action (for strike), 
large-scale (for big), weather con- 
ditions (for weather) are among 
the first victims of the slaughter, 
persons (people) permit Get), 
wealthy (rich), purchase (buy) are 
the next to rail; green lights and 
gravy trains, bottom lines and 
salami tactics, in-depth studies 
and other ball-games, down they 
go; the Hanging Participle, the 
Centre Round and the Transitive

Stir**** — 

Tor more than 40 years I have 
tried to persuade humanity that 
apartheid is an evil as monstrous 
tn every way as that of slavery; 
that its abolition is the only way to 
bring justice and peace (in that 
order) to southern Africa; and that 
there is now no time left for words, 
only for deeds. 

Apartheid is iireformable, as 
slavery was ineformabte. Those 
who, tn the name of governments 
or churches or peace movements, 
continue to urge “patience”, 
"dialogue” and “diplomacy” are 
sustaining the evil of apartheid. 
Moreover, they are responsible for 
the inevitable escalation of vi- 
olence, deaths and destruction. 
For behind the increasing horror 
of civil war in South Africa — and 
also Namibia — lies almost 40 
years of rigidly entrenched apart- 
heid and before that, a further 40 
years of collusion in its evil 
consequences by Great Britain. 

For if one can define a date for 
its beginning it can certainly be 
found in the 1910 Act of Union 
which deprived the African people 
in the Cape of their franchise and 
which was succeeded in 1913 by 
the Native Land Act which de- 
prived them of their right to own 
land For the whole of my lifetime, 
therefore, this evil has been al- 
lowed to destroy the dignity, the 
culture and the lives of genera- 
tions of blacks in their own land

by Trevor Huddleston 

Its power has been sustained by 
the determination of British (and 
now American and West German) 
industrialists and politicians . to 
protect and expand their vast 
investments. It has been sustained 
also by the hypocrisy of those who, 
professing publicly to find apart- 
heid “abhorrent”, condemn those 
who have taken up arms against it 
as “terrorists”. In 1859, when 
John Brown was on trial (and was 
ultimately- executed) for the attack 

on Harpers Ferry which signalled 
the beginning of the American 
Civil War, Henry David Thoreau 
told the citizens of Concord, 
Massachusetts: “It was his 
(Brown's) peculiar doctrine that a 
man has a perfect right to interfere 
by force with the slaveholder, in 
order to rescue the slave. I agree 
with him ... I think that for once 
the Sharps rifles and the revolvers 
were employed in a righteous 
cause”. I think so too. 

And a famous Unitarian min- 
ister, Theodore Parker, seeing the 
inevitability of the Civil War, 
wrote this: “A few years ago it did 
not seem difficult to check slavery 
and then to end it without any 
Woodshed. I think this cannot be 
done now nor ever in the future. 
AD the great charters of humanity 
have been writ in blood . . . Alas! 
that we are not wise enough to be 
just, or just enough to be wise, and 
so gain much at small cost 

I write as one who spent 12 
years in South Africa and was 
there when, after the election in 
1948, the Nationalists first came 
to power. They inherited apart- 
heid but quickly passed laws 
covering every area of life —social 
economic, educational and politi- 

cal — to entrench it more eff- 
ectively. I was there, in the heart of 
black Johannesburg. I saw the 
impact of those laws upon the 
lives of the people I loved. The 
Pass Laws, the Group Areas Act, 
the Bantu Education Act, the 
Suppression of Communism Act 
and countless other regulations 
and decrees that created a prison 
for the African people- 1 saw the 
force used, by the police and 
paramilitary troops against un- 
armed and innocent people. I was 
present at the first “population 
removal”, when 60.000 blacks — 
Johannesburg's labour force — 
were forcibly evicted from their 
homes in Sophiatown: my parish, 
my parishioners, my friends. 

Among the thousands of chil- 
dren directly affected by the Bantu 
Education Act was a 1 5-year-old 
boy of great intellectual ability and 
potential He was in my care for 
two years, fighting not only apart- 
heid but tuberculosis. His name 
was Desmond Tutu. 

I was .present at that great 
gathering outside Johannesburg in 
June 1953 known as the Congress 
of the People. It was that Con- 
gress, representative of every race,

attainment of consistency; those 
who do not write for The Econo-

note how much even of what is 
specific to the magazine passes 
tests of usefulness, logic and

almost identical to those of The

(but “President Reagan”), or The 
Social Democratic party” (but 
“conservatism”), and so could the

canisms as “Prime Minister

repeatedly, without anybody tak- 
ing any notice, that there are no 
circumstances in which per

Fleming once got a letter from his

orate. Miskito warriors were used 
to fight the Spanish and put down 
slave uprising in the Caribbean. 

Miskitos fed by Drake burned 
towns and ambushed treasure- 
laden mule trains in Panama. 
Nelson sent an expedition of 600 
Britons and 400 Miskitos paddling 
op the San Juan river to capture 
Spanish strongholds in Costa 
Rica. Slaves from the Caribbean — 

And the people. For generations 
they have been left to their own 

devices, cut off by jungles and 
mountains from the prosperous 
western coasts of what are now 
Nicaragua and Honduras, still 
hostile to the governments on the 
other ride. Not only do .many 
Miskitos still speak English, but 
many quaint English words have 
been absorbed into their own 
hybrid language. Along the Rio 
Coco they greet each other with 
“maming” and wear “trews” and 
“frocks”. A young girl is a 
“mairin” (maiden), thank you is 
“tiniti" and, as they cannot pro- 
nounce "f \ free has become “pri”. 
Miskito legend has it that their last 
king, Robert Henry Clarence, who 
fled to Jamaica in the 1 890s, is not 
dead but still living in London, 
waiting to return.

I described these things at length 
in my book. Naught for Your 
Comfort, published 30 years ago. I 
believed then that apartheid 
would be dead and buried 
within — at longest — 10 years. 
Yet Tutu is still pleading for the 
support of the Western democ- 
racies and warning of Armaged- 
don. The Commonwealth Em- 
inent Persons Group fans told the 
world that there is. no purpose to 
be served in attempting dialogue 
with Pretoria. But Oliver Tarabo, 
president of foe ANG, my dose 
friend for 40 years, and a man of 
absolute - integrity, is called a 
terrorist by the British govern- 
ment. Nelson Mandela, with 
whom I was also privileged to 
work, is still imprisoned. 

. When you read about or see the 
violence and bloodshed escalating 
in South Africa ask yourselves one 
simple question: What do I, a 
citizen of a country in which I 
have full democratic rights, want 
my government to do to help bring 
it to an end?

The Rt Rev Trevor Huddleston CR 
is president of the Anti-Apartheid 

since the turn of the century, and 
in the 1950s Sir Ernest Gowers 
tried (in vain) to teach the English 
language to the Civil Service; later, 
he brought Fowler up to date, and 
now someone has brought Gcrwers 
up to date. And an army of others, 
among them GE Montague, Ivor 
Brown, Philip Howard and Wil- 
liam Safire, have, oyer the years, 
fought the same good fight, a fight 
that is never finally won. 

I often wonder why people seem 
to feel die need to degrade the 
language; to speak and write ft 
properly is not very difficult, and 
much more fun. Peter Black, when 
television critic of the Daily Mail , 
beard a narrator in a BBC tele- 
vision documentary say “When 
the bonanza was at its peak, the 
crunch came", but that was years 
ago, and far worse can now be 
heard every hour, not only on 
television, but in Parliament, 
university lecture-halls and cathe- 
dral pulpits; indeed, the only area 
of our public life in which the 
language is still used not only well 
-but consistently well is the law. 
The wicked lawyers, ft is true, 
weave nets of wends to catch the 
innocent widow and the helpless 
orphan, the better to grind their 
bones for making pie-crust, but 
the words, on the whole, still 
foDow the rules ofEnglish, and are 
even grammatical besides being 
remarkably free of foe coarser 
dich& and noises like “No way” 
and “hopefully”, let alone 
“yTcnow" and “I mean”. 

Of course, no one can learn to 
use foe language effectively and 
correctly merely by following a set 
of printed rules; that is why Orwell 
added his sixth law: “Break any of 
these rules sooner than say any- 
thing outright barbarous”. (I once, 
for a friend, drew up my own list 
of such rules, and my final one was 
“You may break any grammatical 
or syntactical rule deliberately 
when, and only when, you have 
rendered yourself literally ia- 
capable of breaking ft accid- 
entally”.) But what worries me 
about English as she is wrote today 
is that after many years in 
has been argued (in foe schools 
particularly) that rules do not 
matter beside self-expression, we 
have ended up with no rides at all 
and a standard of self-expression, 
that an orang-outan would find 
seriously limited. 

I hope The Economist will 
publish their style-book and sell ft 
to all who want it; perhaps they 
could expand ft a little before 
doing so, for although its strictly 
utilitarian nature . is much en- 
hanced by the way it is couched, it 
is still a document designed for a 
very specific purpose. In any case, 
ft can do nothing but good, and 
there is only one item in ft which I 
have to rgect “Those who dis- 
agree with you”, says foe guide, 
“are not necessarily stupid or 
insand*. That may be true for the . 
writers of The. Economist, but It. 
certainly isn't true for me.

notr External comment has con- 
fined itself almost exclusively to 
the politics of the SDP mid the 
Liberate. The Alliance commis- 
sion taken refuge in the 
proposition that a decision can be ■ 
delayed until after the election. Dr 
Owen himself been -more, 
forthright but in Bonn last week, 
obtigeaat last to justify his desire 
for a -Polaris replacement, still cud 
not redly spell out his case. 

The reasons for all this retic en ce 
are complicated. Tn the case of foe 
Alliance politicians there is foe 
obvious desire, shared by Owen, 
to cool things down. Then there is 
the feet that everybody is reluctant 
to say in plain terms what Owen 
was hinting in foe coded 
pronouncement just mentioned — 
that we Europeans don't entirely 
trust the Americans any longer — 
since by saying so we might malm 
them even less trustworthy. Bui T 
suspect that foe most powerful 
reason for hesitation is an instinc- 
tive uneasiness on the. part.. of. 
everyone in foe business of poli- 
tics over the present state of public 
opinion on this issue. They sense 
that something is, or perhaps 
ought to be, going on here - the 
result of antirlhaicherism, anti- 
Americanism, Chernobyl bad 
public services and just plain 
weariness — but they are not quite 
sure what. Nobody is anxious to 
get on foe wrong bandwagon and 
so they either avoid new commit- 
ments and arguments or stand pat 
rather desperately on old ones. It 
is to the credit of the Alliance 
politicians that they have ai least 
recognized foe need for a fresh 
examination of the case: what is 
required is that they should be 
prepared to re-educate public 
opinion, in one direction or foe 
other, with a freshly settled

could be made to apta long after 
Nato had formally collapsed. 

Tbe key building blocks of such 
a conclusion are four arguments: 
• How realistic are current fears 
that the US might not risk its own 
nuclear destruction in order to 
save Europe from . Soviet con- 
ventional attack or nuclear black- 
mail? The answer is equivocaL On 
the one hand a strong, nationalis- 
tic US under Reagan or a similar 
successor is likely to give possible 
Soviet aggressors gratifying cause 
for hesitation; on the other, foe 
unilateralism and self-preoccupa- 

tion of recent US policy hints at 
[ the possibility of super-power 
confrontations — ’ and accommod- 
ations — at foe expense of Europe.

Europeans seems prudern. . .

nuclear powers — Britain and 
France — provide the necessary

' nent? Doubtful {juice Dr Owen). 
In foe very long run, a genuine

is whether nuefear weapons are so

minority who. believe that they 
are, the argument is over. The 
other question is about national 
morale.- As in foe Gaitskdlite

much wider one. Then foe ques- 
tion was whether the Lobom Phrty

we are willing to cross foecritical 4

That a state of emergency 
should have been declared in 
. South Africa on the .very day 
that the Commonwealth Emi- 
nent Persons Croup (EPG) 
published a report arguing by 
implication for economic 
sanctions is a coincidence 
heavy with significance. The 
declaration of a state of emer- 
gency was not in itself surpris- 
ing. It may even have become 
unavoidable. The violence of 
recent weeks, withm as well as 
between the races, has ex- 
plored new depths of human 
cruelty. The need to reinforce 
order and to restore what one - 
agency reporter described as a 
“surly peace” upon the black 
townships temporarily over- 
rode such considerations as 
external opinion or maintain- 
ing some hope of political 
dialogue. But it also served to 
underline the bleak message 
that the EPG brought back 
from the Cape. 

- Their mission was more 
than a mere diplomatic ruse — 
to extricate ~ the Common- 
wealth from an impasse over 
sanctions at last Autumn's 
heads of government meeting 
in Nassau. However poor its 
chances of success, it threw a 
bridge across the- wide ning 
chasm between Pretoria and 
elsewhere. In the event, this 
proved to be a bridge which 
President Botha was not brave 
enough to cross — or perhaps 
the bridge was prematurely 
dynamited by an exasperated 
Commonwealth secretariat ' 
Whichever explanation is cor- 
rect, the question now remains 

— where do we go from here? 

The EPG report is a well- 
intentioned document reflect- 
ing the mood of dedication in 
which the group approached 
their task. Few could feil to 
endorse their total opposition" 
to apartheid which on political 
and economic grounds — as 
well as on moral and ethical - 
ones — has always contained . 
withm itself the seeds of its 
own destruction. Few could 
fail to be moved by their - 
measured account of its vile ; . 
human consequences for 
instance, of tftfe Crossroads . 
blacks living in •“ crude shan- 
ties, fashioned from sheets of : 
corrugated iron, and fined with 
cardboariland polythene in an 
attempt to keep out the cold.” 
No-one could fail to be horri- 
fied by their description of a 
repression in which, for in- . 
stance, “the police do not 
hesitate to fire lethal buckshot 
into crowds of unarmed 
blacks, even when they are not 
threatening and are on their 
way to funeral.” 

Such witness, however, has 
led the EPG at times both to 
idealise the black leaders of the 
armed resistance and to dis- 
miss too cavalierly any ev- 
idence that the Botha 
government is serious about 
reform. When we read, of 
black leaders, that “their ideal- 
ism, their genuine sense of 

non-racialism and their readi- 
ness not only to forgive but to 
forget, compels' admiration”, 
we should remember that 
‘ some . of those leaders are 
encouraging the “necklacing” 
of black agents of white 
authority in the townships and 
that others are excusing this 
particularly horrifying form of 
murder. Some leaders, like 
Bishop Tutu, have indeed 
acted in a way that compels 
admiration. Their opposition 
'to random violence, sadly, has 
not strengthened their rfatm to 
leadership. And while 
Pretoria's ruthless emascula- 
tion of- responsible black 
leadership may explain the 
growing ruthlessness of black 
resistance, it is nonetheless a 
feet that cannot be ignored. 

On the other hand, “ob- 
duracy and intransigence” 
hardly amounts to an adequate 
description of government 
policies which have included 
the repeal of laws prohibiting 
mixed marriages, the 
; legalisation of black trade 
unions and the reform of the 
hated pass laws. 

From this standpoint of 
pessimism about the status 
quo, the EPG advanced de- 
mands upon Pretoria that were 
optimistic to an almost uto- 
pian degree: namely, a “firm 
and unambiguous 

commitment” to end apart- 
heid, as well as specific steps 
towards this. Were they asking 
too much? Insofar as President 
Botha was unwilling or unable 
to meet this demand, the 
answer must be “Yes.” 

He regarded, as non-nego- 
tiable the concept of group 
rights and the “homelands” 
policy. He would not give way 
oyer the Registration Act And 
he refused even to contem- 
plate a South Africa built on 
one-manrone-vote democracy 
in a unitary stale. “From these ' 
and other recent develop- 
ments, we - draw the 
conclusion” "the report goes on 
“that while the. government 
claims to be ready to negotiate, 
it is truth not yet prepared to 
negotiate ~ fundamental: 

1 But . that is too firm a 
conclusion to draw from a . 
statement by a politician who .. 
must frame his public commit- 
ments in the tight of his 
electorate's opinions. Aboli- 
tion of apartheid, if It ever 
comes- peacefully to South 
Africa, will come in stages, 
each one of which will be will 
be declared by its architects to 
be the final concession. The 
EPG was right to warn that 
President Botha should not 
give the extremists of the - 
Afrikaner Right a. veto on 
reform. But it would be fool- 
hardy of him to maximise 
political opposition by declar- 
ing in advance that the wind- 
ing up of the apartheid state is * 
his ultimate destination — and 
the EPG foiled to take that 

- elementary calculation into 

Having determined that the 
Botha government will never 
concede such change, the EPG 
suggested that two ways for- 
ward were open. Either the 
international community 
would take unspecified eco- 
nomic measures against South 
Africa or that country's blacks, 
deprived of outside support, 
would resort to ever-increasing 
violence. Only one fresh argu- 
ment is adduced in favour of 
sanctions — that South Africa 
itself thinks them a useful tool 
against neighbouring states. 
But since the neighbouring 
states remain determined to 
assist in bringing down the 
apartheid structure, that sug- 
gests that sanctions were not 
very effective in influencing 
the policies of those states. 

Indeed, in the very case 
cited by the EPG, sanctions 
have hardened existing poli- 
cies — and there is every 
likelihood that they would 
harden South Africa's internal 
policies by removing an in- 
centive for political modera- 
tion and reducing the political 
cost of bringing in a garrison 

Nor is it true that the two 
courses outlined by the EPG 
exhaust all possible futures. 
The duty placed upon the rest 
of the world to help avert the 
long-predicted bloodbath can 
be met by quite a different 
policy — what might be called 
“positive sanctions.” In both 
the EEC and the Common- 
wealth, the British Govern- 
ment should now advance the 
case for using foreign compa- 
nies in South Africa to accel- 
erate the pace of economic and 
political change -there. This 
could be done by legislation 
that would allow — or even 
encourage — investment there 
provided that the companies . 
concerned implemented a 
stepped-up EEC code of 
employment practice, entered 
into partnerships with black 
entrepreneur in the townships 
and else where, provided gen- 
erous grants to black social 
organisations, . . lobbied . . .vig- 
orously in Pretoria (as native 
Afrikaner businesses are now 
doing) to obtain further politi- 
cal reforms, and did much else 
on these lines. Foreign invest- 
ment, by bidding up the price 
and power of black labour and 
reducing the price and power 
of local white capital; would 
bring about political changes 
over time in any event But 
such conscious forcing of the 
pace, at the behest of the 
international community, 
might give the black commu- 
nity -a sense that peaceful 
evolutionary reform had more 
to offer than violent revolu- 

Those who, from either 
despair or radicalism, prefer 
foe latter should look at the 
human consequences of that.

role of Africa's “frightening" and

lems by diverting income into 
immediate consumption and 
inhibiting long-term investment. I 
would like to draw attention to

of the more striking and visible 
consequences of the complex im-

so scarce that each household 
spends 250-300 worker-days a 
year to gather the wood it needs. 

Trees are deared to create new 
land for agricultural development 
to feed growing populations but 
without their protective cover the 
land is vulnerable to tropical 
downpours or strong winds.- This 
is how vast tracts of land in the

dust-bowls. In Ethiopia, where the 
population virtually doubled over 
the past decade, the area of land 
covered by forest has fallen from 
16 per cent to 3 per cent in the last

First, and again, Te Deum. 
The Irish nationalist assault on 
the government of the United 
Kingdom in October 1984 
failed. Celebration of that feet 
has nothing todo with partisan 
politics, everything to* do with 
the defence of democratic 
politics itself against its ene- 
mies. Now, after scrupulous 
judicial process in which even 
defence lawyers* perennial 
offering of “planted evidence” 
was listless, convictions have 
been secured. 

A moment, necessarily brief 
can be spared for unashamed 
congratulation. To the police 
forces of East Sussex, the 
metropolis and Strathclyde, to 
the unnamed operatives of the 
Security Services, to the Royal 

protection. The Irish 
terrorists* access to a new 
generation of explosive device 
was confirmed. After the trial 
communication between re- 
gional police forces emerges — 
not for the first time —as a pre- 
condition of successful detec- 
tion. But here, too, was an 
account. ...of.' col laborati on 
across the Irish Sea and the 
useful exchange of suspicion 
and intelligence between Dub- 
lin and London. 

There were constant 
reminders of the sheer expense 
of surveillance, how keeping 
tabs on a single suspect .costs 
hour after hour of time, and it 
is work that cannot be done by 
untrained officers. Inevitably 
the case is strengthened for 

Ulster Constabulary, to co- specialization within foe po- 

operative officers of the 
Republic of Ireland's. Garda 
are due the thanks of a public 
which —a feet of modern life— 
takes as read the infrastructure 
of security. Accident played its 
part in bringing McGee and 
McDonnel and the others to 
trial, as did the imaginative 
application of technology. Tra- 
ditional police skills, dogged 
surveillance, stolid detection: 
big and successful trials such 
as that of McGee and his co- 
conspirators remind ' police 
and public alike that the mass 
of routine work has a single 
purpose, and that is justice. 

The text of the trial is worth 
study, at home and abroad. 
Some of the lessons of the 
Brighton bomb were for learn- 
ing at once. Seaside party 
conferences needed better 

' lice ranks, despite its costs in 
terms of money and opera- 
tional inflexibility. 

\ The most powerful evidence 
which leads towards that 
conclusion is. the calibre of the 
opposition which the - police 
face. This is a subject which 
security experts in the best 
position to know tend to skirt 
round. But the unmistakeable 
lesson of the trial (and com- 
parable preceding ones) is that 
the IRA's most experienced 
terrorists are formidably well- 
practised, in the arts of killing 
and concealment. To survive 
for perhaps fifteen years, they 
have had to stay ahead' of foe- 
game. The trial; with its sprin- 
kling of names which have 
-cropped up before, indicated 
also that- the IRA can maintain 
ttie capacity to /stage lethal 

. coups with a relatively small 
number of true activists. To 
make these points is to do no 
more than to emphasize what 
is obvious and well-known so 
- that the rignt measures can be 

There is superficial morale- 
boosting to be gained — but 
nothing more — from exag- 
gerating the extent to which 
terrorism is being “beaten”. 
Since the mid-1970s, the 
Provisionals have continued 
to kill their victims at roughly 
the same rate each year. A 
decline in the number of 
deaths due to terrorism can 
only be drawn on a graph by 
■counting m the decline of 
groups other than the 
Provisionals. And ultimately it 
is the Provisionals who are the 
real opposition faced by foe 
police and army. 

Abroad, McGee's terrorist 
biography deserves close 
attention by those ultra-civil 
Dutch jurists and those free- 
dom-loving United States Sen- 
ators who in their different 
ways have shackled the efforts 
of a civilized ally to bring 
terrorists to justice. Let Sen- 
ators Kerry and Biden in their 
parochial fastness read the 
cold plot against Britain's 
summer resorts and just imag- 
ine bloody beaches at home at 
Cape Cod or Dover. Let them 
in their sophistry explain how

ferently on two sides of the 
Atlantic, and Irish murderers

Part-time education 

From the Rector of the Polytechnic 

t f Central London 
rr. June 13 is the deadline for 
public sector institutions to com- 
ment upon the National Advisory 
Body (NAB) 1987/88 planning 
proposals for a major reduction in 
student places in higher education. 

Unfortunately, the current de- 
bate about foe size of these cuts 
has obscured criticisms of regret- 
table lack of direction in the 
planning process. 

In particular, NAB has com- 
pletely ignored foe needs of part- 
time education, in spite of all the 
rhetoric about this being one of 
the few areas for future growth. 
For instance, the annual cost of an 
evening degree student is 60 per 
cent of Lhat of a full-time student, 
yet the unit of resource provided is 
only 20 per cent. 

This is because NAB, after over 
four years of work, has foiled to 
develop any discrimination in . 
respect of the various types of 
evening courses and their different

did venture the warning that 
vigilance was necessary, since it 
was the common practice of foe 
Revenue to take back with the left 
hand what it generously proffered 
with the right This warning, alas, 
proved only too true. 

The Budget speech was suc- 
ceeded by a Finance Bill so 
appalling both in its content and 
complexity as to bankrupt descrip- 
tion. The effect however, after 
hours of painful study, was to 
make it clear that the Bill would 
more than neutralize any benefit 
derived from the changes in 

Moreover, and for worse, it was 
calculated to do immense damage

majority of charities need to rely. 

The Bill was received with a 
clamour of protest - but enlight- 
ened protest — from directors and 
trustees of charities; organisations 
advising them and experts on 
charity law. I may add that my 
own light baritone was added to 
this clamour. 

To the credit of all concerned, 
this clamour of democratic protest 
achieved an unexpected and im- 
mensely welcome result. The 
Treasury, and the Revenue in 
particular, listened patiently, and 
the fortunate upshot is that the , 
worst provisions and the most 
dangerous have now been with- 
drawn. particularly a singularly 
maladroit gradation of charities, i

To mate three points: 

1. It seems outrageous that 
employees whose lives and liveli- 
hoods are at state have no 
possible say in the outcome. 

2. Individual shareholders have 
precious linle say because the 
institutions can always tip foe 
balance. Few of the institutions 
apparently have any but stark 
financial concern in the outcome: 

3. To revert for a moment to 
Booker, I always said to

who provide the money; to

and work: to customers without

again being required to meet a 
reduction, in real terms, in their 
Government grants: One possible 
strategy which might meet a 
national need does not seem to 
have been mentioned in your 

Suppose that the universities 
were to reduce their undergrad- 
uate intake to correspond with the 
cut in UGC funds. And suppose 
further that the teaching effort 
which was thus released could be 
redeployed on post-experience 
courses, not necessarily full-time, 
for those already in employment. 

Those attending these courses, 
or their employers, would be 
expected to pay the economic 
costs — as they do for senior 
management courses. So the total 
university income would be main- 

Then three advantages would 
accrue. There would be no 
diminution in the standard of 
undergraduate courses, which is 
what foe universities want. There 
would be increased provision for 
post-experience training, which is 
what foe country needs. U would 
also be possible to make a dear 
decision on whether to increase or 
decrease both student numbers 
and taxation without fudging the 
issue by talk of increasing ef-

Hotels in Britain 

From the Marquess of Hertford 
Sir, Your “Fourth leader” last 
Saturday (June 7) was hardly fair 
to Britain’s tourist industry. The 
best hotels in London, among 
which I would not personally 
include the two whose prices you 
quoted, are so much better than 
any hotels in America that price 
comparisons are irrelevant. 
Perfection is expensive. There are 
plenty of cheaper places to stay. 

I do not believe that “foe 
average mid-Westerner misses his 
cost-effective motel”. On holiday, 
he surely wants something more 
interesting; or if be doesn't, his 
wife does. 

In Stratford-on-Avon there are 
more “multiple shops” than in 
most country towns. Some of 
them, built behind Georgian fa- 
cades, are both beautiful and 
cheap. In July. August and 
September this year, Stratford 
hotels will give their overnight 
guests vouchers entitling them to 
10 per cent reductions in local 
shops, restaurants and tourist 

This should help to show that 
we do care for our visitors, 
whether they come from America 
or anywhere else. 

Yows faithfully,

When foe dandelion “clocks”,

JUNE 13 1891 

Anti-Semitism in Russia was 
reviving as Jewish students and 
artisans increasingly brought 
Western ideas of industrial 
socialism into Russian cities. 
This time anti-Semitism mas part 
of a wider movement. Poles, who 
had supplied 60 to 80 per cent of 
the labour in building the Central 
Asian Railway, were, apart from a , 
handful, ordered to leave Russia i 
by a decree from General 
Kuropatitin, who made his name 
in the Russo-Turkish mar (1877- 
78) in which the Jewish tailor had 


MOSCOW, June 11. 

About a hundred Jewish artisans 
who have served their tune as 
soldiers with the colours have sent 
a petition to the Czar to the effect 
that, after having passed through 
the ranks of the Russian army and 
being now settled down in Moscow, 
they are to be sent away from their 
homes like felons. They are ready, 
as they Bay, to sacrifice themselves 
when necessary on the altar of the 
Fatherland, and are proud of 
having been Russian soldiers; but if 
they are thus covered with shame 
and contumely how can they again 
serve his Majesty in case at any 
rimB they should be bhIIwI 
into active service? It is very 
doubtful whether this petition will 
ever get near its destination. 

When the Emperor came here 
recently the police ordered that no 
Jews were to appear in any of the 
principal streets, under pain of 
arrest and imprisonment. Never- 
theless it appears that a Jewish 
student who was dismissed from 
the University after the last disor- 
ders. in which be took no part, was 
bold enough to attempt to throw a 
petition into the Imperial carriage 
from the crowd as their Majesties 
passed through the street of Tver. 
Their Majesties were very much 
startled. The paper fell to the 
ground, but the Empress ordered 
the coachman to stop and had it 
picked up, while the student was 
seized and led off by the police. . . 

— A Correspondent 


.. A distinguished Russian friend 
of mine, well known in his own 
country and abroad, has just come 
from Moscow, and tells me that 
while there he employed a Jewish 
tailor, an old soldier who fought in 
the last war «nrf pinwl the St. 
George’s Cross for conspicuous 
valour in the field. When my friend 
left Moscow this man was under 
police orders to quit the city like 
the rest of the Jews, and his friends 
were trying to get for him permis- 
sion to stay. To expel in this way 
an old soldier who has p»in«d the 
highest military decoration in the 
power of the Czar to bestow, is an 
outrageous injustice and an insult 
to the order which he wears. 

The report of- the new Jewish 
synagogue in St Petersburg having 
been closed is not quite correct 
That building is not yet finished, 
and remains unopened, ostensibly 
for want of sufficient money. The 
report, however, is so for true that 
this lack of funds and the delay in 
completing the synagogue must be 
taken in connexion with the 
present wretched condition of all 
Jewish affaire in Russia, and the 
normal reluctance to push forward 
any undertaking of a purely Jewish 
character. . . 

It is not only the Jews who have 
been thus far unable to eqjoy the 
luxury of a proper house of 
worship. The Mahomedana of St. 
Petersburg have bng strained ev- 
ery nerve to scrape together enough 
money to build a mosque. Permis- 
sion to construct it has been 
promised, but who can tell whether 
this promise may not be affected 
before it can be taken advantage oL 
by the evil reports now being 
vamped up against the Tartars? 
Mr. Gladstone, Professor 
Vambfry, and Mr. Samuel Monta- 
gu, whose opinions have just 
appeared in The Times on this 
subject, are in error in continuing 
to believe that the Mohomedans In 
Russia are being let alone and that 
only the Jews are being persecuted. 

It is perfectly astonishing how 
distinguished public men in En- 
gland can r emain ignorant of the 
01-wind which is now blowing over 
this country, carrying hatred alike 
against German, Jew, Pole and 
Tartar. The Germans and 
Mahomedans, happily for them, 
are still strong organized powers 
outside Russia. The Jews are in the 
position of the victim obliged to 
submit to the blow of the brickbat 
because he has no friends. The 
English friend of the Jew de- 
nounces the oppressors of the 
afflicted race from the house-tops 
and then goes home to a sumptu- 
ous dinner. . . 

Signs of the times 

From Major-General D.Braggins 
Sir, Having attended a “bricks and 
mortar” course (Mr Parian's let- 
ter, May 20), which I am glad to 
confirm is strongly supported by 
major-generals, amongst many 
others, my new-found skills have 
been put to excellent use. Plumb- 
ing. electrical repairs, carpentry, 
plastering and painting have fea- 
tured prominently in my pro- 
gramme and I have no doubt but 
that I have been saved consid- 
erable expense as a result. 

It has to be reported, however, 
that house repairs, particularly in 
the country, are not without their 
hazards. Not only am 1 afflicted 
with pins and needles in my right 
hand through gripping paint 
brashes for hours on end, but a 
cow tried to chew a hole in my 
pullover whilst I was repairing a 
stone wall in my garden. 

I would be pleased to provide

^ The way to 
get things done 


In 1985 The Times celebrated 
its bicentenary, an opportuni- 
ty to reflect on the momentous 
events it reported during 200 
years and on its own history 
and development. 

But it also seemed appropri- 
ate to the then editor, Charles 
Douglas-Home, that the paper 
shotJd look to the future and 
encourage one of the most 
significant trends of recent 
years — community enter- 
prise, the spirit of indepen- 
dence and. achievement which 
conies from local groups 
endeavouring to improve 
their own environment- 

The T/rms/Royal Institute 
of British Architects Commu- 
nity Enterprise Scheme was 
launched in September, with 
the patronage ot the Prince of 
Wales, whose personal inter- 
est in community initiatives is 
well known, and under the 
chairmanship of Rod Hack- 
ney, the community architect. 

The assessors were to in- 
clude a community organizer, 
Maureen Read, the director, 
of Shelter, Sheila McKecfanie, 
a representative of commerce 
and industry, Tony 
Shiilingford, of Business in the 
Community, as well as two 
architects. Andrew Derbyshire 
and John Lane, and two 
representatives of The Times, 
Sarah Hogg, economics editor, 
and Charles Knevitt, architec- 
ture correspondent 

As Mr Hackney said at the 
launch: “Most environmental 
awards, including architectur- 
al awards, are for design, and 
the assessors' job is to judge 
the end product There may be 
a tendency to judge a project 
on its photogenic qualities, 
although in a few cases some 
emphasis is also placed on 
user-appreciation. We thought 

it was time to recognize 
community enterprise and ini- 
tiative as well and in particu- 
lar the way projects are put 

“Today we are launching an 
award which recognizes the 
quality of die process by 
which projects come about as 
well as the end resulL" 

Community groups and 
their professional advisers 
were invited to submit entries 
to receive an award for “the 
most imaginative, viable and 
need-fulfilling” projects, and 
nearly 200 were received. 
During the next two months 
the assessors whittled them 
down to 33 entries to be 
visited. They fell into four 
broad categories: housing, 
workshops, community cen- 
tres, and environmental im- 
provements, a “catch-all" that 
included urban farms, adven- 
ture playgrounds and major 
urban renewal projects, one 
involving a whole town. 

Between January and April 
this year, all the short-listed 
projects were visited and as- 
sessed on their value to the 
community, the process by 
which they had come about, 
design quality, plans for future 
management and any special 
features, such as access for the 

The quality of the entries is 
reflected in what might seem a 
generous number of winners: 
nine awards, II commenda- 
tions and eight honourable 

Immediately after the 
launch the Calouste 
Gulbenkian ' Foundation ap- 
proached The Times with the 
offer of grams to the best 
projects. This was immediate- 
ly taken up and a total of 

£10,000 will be presented to 
the award-winners today by 
the Prince of Wales. Paul 
Cunto, deputy director of the 
foundation, attended all the

Andrew Derbyshire, chair- 
man of RMJM London and 
one of the assessors, had these 
comments to make about 
what strode him during the 
visits he made: 

• The extent to which com- 
munity enterprise is stimulat- 
ed m the fust instance as a 
response to insensitive, high- 
handed and dogmatic central 
and local government actions; 

• The importance of all the 
various aid schemes in pro- 
viding the essential support to 
voluntary effort which lifts a 
project over the threshold of 
feasibility. The rewarding 
sight ot the great fund of 
selfless generosity of spirit 
which still resides in cur 

Diaries Douglas Home died 
within six weeks of launching 
the scheme- His successor, 
Charles Wilson, thought it 
would be a fitting tribute to his 
memory to present a special 
award in his name to the most 
outstanding example of com- 
munity enterprise.

Derry wins 
top award 

The top award in the 1985-86 
Community Enterprise 
Scheme has been giren to the 
Deny Inner Dty Project 

The old dty of Londonder- 
ry, originally bnflt in the 17th 
century and now one of the 
few remaining walled cities in 
Europe, has been subject to 
years of neglect and devasta- 
tion as a result of the troubles. 

In 1981 the North West 
Centre for Learning and De- 
velopment, a gro up con- 
cerned with individual and 
community development, 
initiated the Inner City 
Project to revitalize the dty, 
under the direction of Patrick 

Doherty, a former bnOdiag 
foreman with Wimpey. 

The aim was to create 
employment and exploit the 
tourist potential. A manage- 
ment committee com prising 
representatives from trade, 
professional, religious and 
dvic sections of the commu- 
nity run the project 

Derelict properties have 
been rebuilt using local la- 
bour to create various ameni- 
ties for young people. 

Funding has come from the 
Youth Training Programme 
and Action for Community 
Employment for the labour 
costs; Derry City Council, the 
Irish American Cultural In- 
stitute, the Ireland Fund of 
America and a number of 
other Irish American organi- 
zations, and individuals. 





The Royal Institute of British Architects is engaged in a variety of initiatives 
designed to help communities help themselves, to explore inner city problems : 
with a view to finding practical solutions, and in its ‘Decaying Britain Campaign’ 
to draw attention to die deteriorating condition of the public estate and die 
growing backlog of repair caused through progressive under-investment by 
government. Prominent amongst these is C ommunit y Architecture. 

The aim of Community Architecture is to improve the quality of the enviroment 
by involving people in the design and management of the buildings or spaces 
they inhabit. The Architect works closely with the co mmuni ty providing the 
design and organising skills to ensure that it is their ideas that are turned into a 
practical reality. Community Architects are essentially enablers and when a 
scheme is put forward professionally and convincingly it stands a far greater 
chance of success. 


Often the most difficult thing is to get started and to find the money to pay an 
architect to see if your group’s ideas are feasible. This is where the RIBA can 
help. Firsdy,we can advise you of a suitable architect for what you have in mind, 
and secondly we can give small grants to community and voluntary groups which 
will enable them to pay at least part of the expense of employing an architect in 
the vital stages of getting the project off the ground. 

The Community Projects Fund, established by the RIBA’s Community 
Architecture Group in 1982, has helped hundreds of groups, and five of the 
winning schemes in the Community Enterprise Awards 85-86 have benefited 
from a grant.

Projects Fund contact the Community Architecture Resource Centre at the

By The Prince of Wales 

f It has been said, that 
only one thing is nn- 
stoppable in this world: 
an idea whose time has come. 
Community enterprise is, I 
believe, one of those ideas 
which can radically transform 
people's lives for the better. ' 

It does this by encouraging 
them to be independent, to. 
take control over their own 
lives, and to have a pride in 
themselves and their 
neighbourhoods, by creating 
opportunities for selAexpres- 
sion and by putting their 
creative energy to work for 
their own benefit and that of 

So many of the problems 
that confront us today, wheth- 
er bad housing, unemploy- 
ment. the decline of the 
traditional manufacturing in- 
dustries, or the loss of the 
cohesion of traditional com- 
munities, present an awesome 
challenge, particularly in our 
inner a ties. The scale of the 
task requires a partnership 
between all those who have a 
role to play and a fresh 
approach to ways of making 
things happen. 

The 77mes/Royal Institute 
of British Architects Commu- 
nity Enterprise Awards, which 
1 will be presenting today, are 
a measure and recognition of 
the practical achievements 
which have resulted from 
local initiatives throughout 
the country. 

New places have been creat- 
ed in which people want to 
live, work and play, because 
they have had a personal stake 
in bringing them about They 
have forged new partnerships 
between their community 
groups, professional enablers 
(architects, planners, survey- 
ors and other experts), load 
authorities, private landown- 
ers and the more for-sighted 
financial institutions. 

The winners include several 
housing projects, but also 
small workshops, community 
centres and environmental 
improvements, such as an 
urban firm and urban renewal 
projects. There are new build- 
ings as well as existing budd- 
ings which have been 
refurbished for new uses. All 
of them demonstrate that 
community initiatives can 
lead to “imaginative, viable 
and need-fulfilling" enter- 
prises — the criteria for 

Over recent months I have 
visited a number of today's 
successful entries. In Bristol I 
was shown flats built by the 
Zenzele Self-Build Housing 

Association. A nonp of young 
unemployed from the St 
Paul's area were given the 
opportunity to develop work 
experience and useful skills, to 
engender a sense of optimism 
and motivation for the future 
and to provide improved 
housing. Eleven of the twelve 
group members have now 
found full-time employment 
and four have even started 
their own building company. 

Lea View House, in Hack- 
ney, east London, was a run- 
down hard-to-let estate hated 
by its tenants. Community 
architects Hunt Thompson 
Associates were brought in by 
the council to work with the 
tenants. They set up their 
office in one of the flats. 
Talking to the tenants I dis- 
covered that a new sense of 
community spirit has 
blossomed on the estate. 

Vandalism, m uggi ng and 
crime have been virtually 


eliminated while communal 
areas remain clean and cared 
for. What was known as 
“Heaven in Hackney" when it 
originally opened in 1939 has 
become “Paradise Regained” 
as a result of community 

And in the Hade Sykes area 
of Burnley 1 visited Queen 
Street Mill, home of the last 
remaining steam-powered cot- 
ion-weavmg mill in the coun- 
try. It has recently been 
refurbished as a working mu- 
seum with a number of small 
workshop units for crafts and 
textile-related activities which 
should create 100 new jobs. 
Here the local council is 
working with Pennine Heri- 
tage, a charitable voluntary 

These three schemes repre- 
sent different methods of ap- 
proach and different types of 
partnership. But they are all 
examples of community enter- 
prise at work, which does give 
a new sense of hope to large 
numbers of people who previ- 
ously could see no way around 
their problems. 

During my visit to America 
last year f was impressed fry 
the approaches adopted there 
to rebuilding the inner cities 
and reviving local democracy 

in the process. They discov- 
ered long ago that bureaucracy 
is the enemy of enterprise, and 
that partnerships based ' on 
trust stand afar higher degree 
of success. It is through en- 
lightened and imaginative 
partnerships between statu- 
tory bodies and enterprising 
individuals that we shad] 
achieve the kind of local 
regeneration that is so badly 

The environmental profes- 
sion in this country, supported 
by their institutes will, I hope, 
learn to identify their real 
clients, the users of their work, 
and provide a responsive ser- 
vice. There is a need for them 
to de-mystify their role and 
overcome petty Jealousies and 
rivalries. New standards of 
professional service are re- 
quired, and the most able, 
committed younger members 
of the professions should be 
encouraged by their senior 
colleagues in their task. 

Enterprise, by definition, 
involves risk. So many of the 
schemes I have mentioned 
involve professionals sharing 
the risks of the community 
groups with which they work. 
The results are often 

Local authorities, too, could 
also, be more supportive. 
Many' of the mistakes of the 
recent past might have been 
avoided bad the local commu- 
nity been involved. Commu- 
nity groups with a genuine 
desire to improve their envi- 
ronment should not be treated 
in the same way as a specula- 
tive developer, experienced in 
working in a hard, commercial 
and often cynical climate. 
They need to be nurtured to 
achieve their objectives. That 
requires a much more relaxed 
and encouraging response. 

Enterprise from the com- 
munity is. 1 believe, the most 
effective way of improving so 
much of our decaying envi- 
ronment Resources have to 
be made available to make 
things happen, and that needs 
managerial and financial, as 
well as building skills, with 
commerce and industry mak- 
ing a social investment which 
wiU repay handsome social 

The Community Enterprise

Farming the

Environmental entries for the 
award scheme ranged from 
derelict sites transformed into 
gardens to regeneration of 

In 1981 the Shoreditch Fes- 
tival. a local group specializ- 
ing in family entertainment, 
decided to do something 
about the dereliction in Hack- 
ney. With the help of Coven t 
Garden Housing Prefects Ar- 
chitects, it prepared a scheme 
for 150-176 H ox ton Street, 
and formed the Hoxton Trust 
The quality and speed with 
which the trust has worked has 
attracted much private com- 
mercial investment 

Cardiff Gty Farm, the first 
urban farm in Wales, was 
started in 1978 by a group of 
local people wanting to re- 
claim and develop derelict 
land. With the help of a local 
architect a suitable site was 
found, a four-acre former 
refuse tip in Grangetown.

In 1978 the people of 
Mortlake, in the London bor- 
ough of Richmond, became 
concerned about the future of a 
group of dilapidated buildings 
die council was proposing to 
demolish. The Mortlake Com- 
munity Association persuaded 
the council to save the bafld- 
iogs, and formulated a detailed 
brief to developers to provide 
workshops and studios for 
start-up firms, housing, a 
youth dub, social facilities, a 
council depot and a riverside 
cafe. The project has come to 
fruition throogh a partnership 
between the architect- 
developers, Gillian Harwood 
and Philip Lancashire, and 
the association.

The Tabernacle, a grade II 
listed building in North Ken-

built by an evangelical church 
sect in the nineteenth century. 
Today it stands in an area of 
multiple deprivation, with 
high unemployment, poor 
housing and low incomes. 

The need for a community 
centre was recognised more 
than 20 years ago. In 1980 the 
local council agreed to let out 
the building on licence to an 
independent management 
committee elected by mem- 

bers of the Tabernacle Com- 
munity Association. 

The building now accom- 
modates a youth club, art 
room, gymnasium, cafeteria, 
projection room, and a hall 
used for a creche. 

Its financial security is now 
secured through support from 
the council and charitable 
organisations, supplemented 
by income from bookings, 
events and the bar. Jobs have 
been created and local youths 
are trained with grants from 
the council and the Manpower 
Services Commission, under

Stalwart leadership of

General' Secretary of the. 
Amalgamated Union ofBmld- 
ing Trade Workers fiom 1951 
to I973.died oa June 11 aihe 
ageof TS. . 

The usually raild-tTKtn- 
nered, quietly spoken 
Lowihian, a numuativejBpe- 
smoker, was fajown to show 
flashes of flame belligerence 
on his own account .■ ■ 

His unicb sdU remembers 
his short, bulky figure storm- 
ing up the Llandudno confer- 
ence hafl and forcibly 

a protesting Trotskyist intrud- 
er out of the door. . 

George Henry Lowthian 
was bom in Cdrhsic bn Jmw- 
ary30. 1908. Both hisgrandfo- 
thers and his fluher were 
stonemasons and his father, 
Ernest, was one. , of the 
founders of the Carlisle 
branch of the Social Demo- 
cratic Federation. 

Lowtfaian himself was ap-. - 
prenticed to i he trade of 
bricklayer at the age of 16 and 
joined the local branch of the 
union when he was 20. 

He became in turn brand) 
secretary, district .secretary, 
divisional secretary and. Anal- 
ly, general secretary of the 
union in 1951 at the early age 
of 42. 

That same year he was 
elected to the TUC General 
Council* serving on it until 

He was a moderate and 
usually took his union with 
him in support of the offical 
leadership at the Trades 
Union Congress and the annu- 
al conference of the Labour 

A reliable and persistent 
rather than spectacular onion . 
leader, he quickly emerged as 
one of the movements alert - 

He won the respect of ft How 
trade unionists and employers - 
by his p rogressive approach to 
some of the industry’s biggest 
contemporary problems. 

With dogged strength, be 
hewed at the roots of exclusive 
craft unionism from within.

At the conference table his

A friend writes: ' 

M Henri Midrcl, whose 
death you noticed briefly on 
June 9, was' the leading au- 
thority on - the history of 
French wartime resistance 
and a figure of world emi- 
nence in scholarship, as wefl 
as a Commander in the Legion 
of Honour. 

He organised, and for many 
years presided over, the inter- 
national committee oa : the 
History of die Second World 
War, and was the-' founder- 
editor of the Revue i fHistoire 
de la Deuxihne Guerre " 
Mondiale. the best learned' 
journal on the subject 
He edited a useful collection 
of monographs called Esprit 
de la Resistance, and wrote 
nearly a score of works, rang- 
ing from popular accounts of 
the clandestine- movements in 
occupied Europe to an 800- -

the Royal Air Force, which 
delayed a train he was in; 
when he reached his secret 
rendezvous, late, he spotted 
that Gestapo agents were col-

He was a careful, patient 
scholar, modest in manner, 
thorough in research and lim-

He leaves a widow, -two 
sons, and a daughter.

chairman from 1960-62. He 
was also a^ director ofRemploy

He was dtainoaBjof the

In many ways Lowthian 
was the epitome of stolid, 
nineteenth century non-con- 
fonmsm. With his members* 
interests at heart, he seldom 
opposed progress, welcoming 
anythh%.that took the jifc out 
of work. 

He was a Unitarian and a 
firm believer in the virtues of 
Temperance: His . particular 
interests were industiiaL tram-

He was a . witty raconteur 
with a quiet sense ofhumour. 
his only vices, if vices they 
were, being smoking, a love of 
cards, and photography.

U reaction 

Media &D- 00 I from ' the 
Chernobyl disaster caiaed 
down last night with The 
- Manta* Factor (Thames), TV 
Eye s report 00 the dodgy state 
of Britain's ageing nuclear 
reactors. Originally due for a 
thorough check-up after 20 
years’ service, more than one 
of the 18 first-generation sta- 
tions is showing signs of 
haring exc eede d its sbetHife 

or at least half-life. Mean- 
while, in MassotinTs brave 
new town of Latina, concern is 
hetag voiced over the health of 
a coeval reactor exported from 
Britain, and there are dark 
allegations that the Govern- 
ment is exerting pressure on 
the Italians to stick with ft. 

One of the problems of the 
anti -nuclear lobby is that 
these power stations, ngfy 
though they are, resemble 
anything but the apocalyptic 
furnaces of their worst appre- 
hensions. Tim stock library 
sbotofSel/aiieid, for example, 
features sheep safely gr aying 
in the foreground: the implied 
threat of irradiated lamb 
chops tends to get lost in the 
tranquillity of the scene: Palm- 
er instead of Blake. 

In the shadow of this men- 
ace, we can but keep our 
fingers crossed -- or wear 
green uoderclotbes,orwitatev- 
er It is we do to placate the 
Fates moor supposedly scepti- 
cal age. Before he faces the 
footlights, the actor Derek 
Jacobi taps his nose 25 times 
— a rather bizarre admission 
freely offered to Susan Cros- 
land in the first part of her 
essay on the contemporary 
state of superstition. Praise 
God (BBC2). Scepticism was 
represented by John Morti- 
mer (“Mozart doesn't crop up 
very much”, he remarked drily 
of the average seance), while 
the case for the Unknown was 
put by a medium who claims 
among other things to be “a 
walking TV set” in touch with 
a Peruvian seer. 

Making her television db> 
bnt, Mrs Crosland wisely let 
her subjects speak for them- 
selves but showed little sign of 
grasping the true richness of 
her material, particularly in 
her uneasy flirting with the 
notion of predestination. The 
real essence of tbe occult, of 
course, is that you see it what 
you believe it. 

Subverting the 
conventions in 
tough realism

The contemporary composing 
scene is of course knee-deep in 
propaganda, to tbe extent that 
it is both a pleasure and a 
relief when a much-vaunted 
individual's work really is as 
good as the attendant publici- 
ty makes it out to be. First 
impressions suggest that Si- 
mon Holt's Condones, pre- 
miered in this concert, are 
something yet better than that 
- brilliantly conceived even 
by his own standards, and 
technically a class apart from 
most of bis contemporaries. 
Simple enough, really: there is 
no substitute for talent

Maurice Pialat's Police was made 
with a large budget (by French 
standards) and a lot or publicized 
acrimony. The conflict between 
Pialat famous -for his distaste for 
actors.’ and his female star Sophie 
Marceau was enthusiastically re- 
ported by the Press, and no doubt 
gives the colouring- to Marceau’s 
guarded. . belligerent performance. 
Relations with the scriptwriter 
Catherine Breillat deteriorated to 
the point of litigation after Pialat 
railed in new writers and eventual- 
ly, it seems, improvised tbe scenario 
and the dialogue from day to day. 

Schism is in the character of the 
film itself. The substance of the 
story is the stock-in-trade of every 
police film — the idea that police 
and criminals are creatures of tbe 
same mould, separated^ if at all. by 
quite artificial social barriers. Ge- 
rard Depardieu (who seems to have 
worked amicably with Pialat an 
Police though their quarrels during 
the making of Ltotldu. were notori- 

ous) plays the kind of tough Parisian 
cop who gets blood on his shirt 
when interrogating suspects. None- 
theless he moyes easily amongst the 
Arab underworld which represents 
his principal quarry, cheerfully 
sleeps with tbe local whores and 
dines with the bent criminal defence 

The development of an unlikely 
romance betwen the cop and the 
. mistress of an Algerian drug-dealer 
— it is tbe woman's resistance to 
interrogation that first arouses his 
interest — is equally conventional. 
Pialat however subverts the con- 
ventions by the densely atmospher- 
ic realism with which he presents 
the milieux. Tbe police station is a 
messy labyrinth whose denizens 
sustain .a macho bonhomie and 
polite incuriosity about one ano- 
ther's irregular methods of investi- 
gation. The Arab ghetto is a place 
enclosed in its own secrets, rites and 
loyalties. The two worlds have it in 
common that truth is rarely discov- 
ered and never expected. 

The hero's romance is inevitably 
doomed by the chronic mendacity 
of the milieu and in particular of the 
young woman, played by Sophie 
Marceau. Gerard Depardieu man- 
ages to transcend the familiar 
conventions of the relationship and 
the character - the tough confi- 
dence which fells away bit by bit to 
expose the private loneliness and 
doubt. He has an easy skill as well as 
a massive screen presence, and is as 
compelling in the sadistic jollity of 
his professional activity as in the 
twitchy nerviness of his attempts to 
love. Pialat would have served him 
better. though with a more purpose- 
ful scenario: after the muscular, 
neo-documentary first half of the 
film, it wanders fatally towards the 
enfo ‘ 

Even Depardieu's efforts cannot 
redeem A Woman or Two, a 
muddled comedy conceived and 
directed by Daniel Vigne, who last 
worked with the actor on a very 
different project. The Return of 
Martin Guerre. The premise is 
reasonably promising: Depardieu is 
a dedicated palaeontologist who 
excavates tbe remains of the earliest - 
known. Frenchwoman. His affec- 
tions are thereafter torn three ways, 
between this prehistoric Venus,' his • 
mistress and a tricky American 
advertising executive (Sigourney 

Easy skill, massive screen presence, compulsion in sadistic jollity: Gerard Depardieu as Mangin 
and Sophie Marceau foil of guarded belligerence as Nona in Police 

Weaver) whom he mistakes for the 
head of a beneficent American 
research foundation. 

Vigne's script goes chasing off in 
all directions, introducing new char- 
acters and new plot-twists which are 
never followed up. Even a useful 
comic character like the irascible 
midget lady who is the real founda- 
tion head (played by Dr Ruth 
Wertheimer) is taken up and 
dropped as casually and inconse- 
quentially as some farcical business 
with a circus elephant. 

It is wearisome in a way that 
Static, for all its errors, is not. Even 
though it tends to shift direction 
and tone disconcertingly, this 
strange little feble marks a very 
promising debut for its 26-year-old 
director and writer Mark Romanek. 

Keith Gordon, who also collabo- 
rated on the script, plays a mild 
young man who works in a religious 
requisites factory and collects the 
malformed reject crucifixes 10 hang 
on his wall. He has been working on 
a special Television antenna intend- 
ed to receive transmissions from 
Heaven, ever since his parents went 
there after a car crash. His disap- 
pointment at finding that be is the 
only one who can perceive the 
heavenly transmissions — everyone 
else sees only siatic — leads to a 
iragi-farcical ending involving the 
hijacking of a busload of senior 
citizens. Meagre resources, thin 
anion and slow pace are offset by 
Romanek’s invention and whimsi- 
cal vision of life in an Arizona 
desert small town. 

Hollywood has a remarkable 
capacity for squandering millions 

on scripts that must have looked 
hopeless from the start. Frank 
Perry's Compromising Positions is 
adapted from her own novel by 
Susan Isaacs, who is far too fond of 
dialogue, h sets an elaborate murder 
mystery in a society of bored 
suburban wives (the victim is a 
demist wiih wandering eye and 
hands) but does it at the level of 
Mabel the Girl Detective, with 
Susan Sarandon popping her eyes as 
the amateur sleuth. Raul Julia's 
embarrassed performance as the 
real detective does nothing to save 
the film from its own silliness. 

It is more surprising to find John 
Carpenter a party to the idiotic 
script of Black Moon Rising, direct- 
ed by Harley CokJiss. The entangled 
plot has Tommy Lee Jones as a 
government-employed industrial 
private eye. variously embattled 
with police, rival agents and a 
massive car-stealing corporation 
operating from catacombs in a 
tower block. The narrative pivot is 
the opposition of high tech to high 
tech, which turns out to be remark- 
ably ineffectual in dramatic terms: it 
is devastaiinglv unthrilling to watch 
each piece of electronic magic 
monotonously countered by the 

On Saturdays and Sundays dur- 
ing the next two months the ICA is 
presenting lunchtime screenings of 
Richard Kohn's documentary Lord 
of tbe Dance, which records the 
annual Mani-Rimdu ritual and 
dance-drama in a Tibetan Buddhist 
monastery on the slopes of Everest. 
Allowing for the restraints of con- 
densing three weeks of preparation 

and ceremonial into a two-hour 
film, it is a thorough, painstaking 
and reverent record. Though its 
primary interest is likely to be for 
ethnographers and students of exot- 
ic dance, this glimpse of the gentle, 
self-absorbed society, so distant 
from our own, has a mesmeric 

The regular evening shows at the 
ICA have Erendira, in which the 
expatriate Brazilian director Ruy 
Guerra makes a bold attempt to 
bring to the screen the characteristic 
“magic realism” of the Nobel Prize- 
winning writer Gabriel Garcia 
Marquez, From the start intended 
for the screen, the story eventually 
became the Innocent Erendira epi- 
sode of Marquez's noted multi-part 
novel 100 Years of Solitude. . 

The orphan Erendira (Claudia 
Ohana), enslaved by her monstrous 
old grandmother (Irene Papas), 
accidentally bums down the house. 
Grandmother philosophically de- 
cides that Erendira must submit 
herself to lifelong prositution in 
order to pay for tbe damage. The 
beautiful and passive child proves 
magnificently successful at the job, 
until the day young LMysses comes 
along io save her from Granny's evil 
spell. While each individual reader 
must decide whether Guerra's vi- 
sions are equal to Marquez's, the 
film does create its own integral 
world of tangible irreality, with the 
invaluable contribution of Irene 
Papas's grotesque old witch and the 
archetypal innocents of Claudia 
Ohana and Oliver Wehe.

Frankie Miller 

Half Moon, Putney 

With the best will in the world 
it could hardly be said that 
Frankie Miller is an original 
talent, and his erratic history 
of successes, near-misses and 
outright failures stems largely 
from his questionable judge- 
ment in writing and arranging 
suitable material to perform. 
Of his talent as a traditional 
heavy rock vocalist there can 
be no' doubt, but Seventies hits 
like "Be Good to Yourself" 
and “Darlin 1 ” proved too 
tasteful for the Metal audi- 
ence. while his style as a 
performer has been too heavy 
and unfashionable for the 
mainstream rock market. 

The heavyweight band be- 
hind him, Phil Taylor (former 
Motorhead drummer), Brian 
Robertson (former Thin Lizzy 
guitarist) and Chrissie Stewart 
(former Graham Bonnet bass- 
ist). wasted no time in faying 
into a rock-steady mid-tempo 
riff while Miller came on, 
rolled up his sleeves and 
settled down to the evening's 
business. The riff turned out 
to be "Take Me to the River”, 
an Al Green song popularized 
by Talking Heads, but which 
ended up. like all the pieces in 
the set, sounding like a slightly 
modernized Free song. 

Indeed Miller's voice, dic- 
tion and phrasing were so 
uncannily like that of Free's 
erstwhile vocalist Paul Rod- 
gers, and the music was so 
consistently of the same un- 
hurried muscular thrust that 
typified Free's performances, 
that one almost began to 
wonder when they would start 
playing “All Right Now” and 
have done with it. 

But gradually numbers like 
“I'd Lie to You for Your 
Love” and the somewhat 
boastful “Thai's How Long 
My Love Is” pulled the perfor- 
mance into a more jaunty rock 
'n' roll idiom. Stewart played 
his bass with dependable 
cheer, as Robertson chucked 
out cocky guitar solos and' 
Taylor kept his head down. 
Miller towelled himself after 
each song as if he had just 
emerged from a shower, and, 
as the temperature and vol- 
ume rose by dizzying degrees, 
the crowd shuffled with in- 
creasing animation on the 
sticky carpet. 

It was great pub rock enter- 
tainment, but one wondered 
how long Miller and musi- 
cians like these can afford to 
play this kind of venue.

Edging her way, as sbeput it in 
the programme, into- a more 
recent repertory for the Lon- 
don Mozart Players, Jane 
Glover teamed their epony- 
mous composer, with Britten, 
and reminded us how startling 
the latter was at the age of 19 
in his Sinfonietta, Op L A 
student work it was, but not 
the kind that plays itself by 
any m eans, and the originality 
of thought that went into it 
was reflected in the keenly 
poised performance of tingle 
wind instruments and strings. 

It followed- Heather Har- 
per’s tinging of Les Illumina- 
tions in the only soprano 
account of. these Rimbaud 
settings, that I have beard 
capture -their elusive spirit. 
The ecstatic line-drawing of 
“Marine”, the wealth of par-- 
lahdo character in “Parade” 
and tbe beautifolfy soft octave 
drop at the jend of “Phrase” 
were randomly noted tokens 
of Miss Harper’s sensibility to 
words and muse, making her 
recent appointment as direc- 

tor of. tinging -studies at the 
Britten-Pears School . more 

She also sang two Mozart 
-arias with that feeliug’for style 
and brightness of tone' which 
characterized so many long- 
remembered performances 
before she retired from the 
opera stage. If neither was 
quite as passionately ex- 
pressed as it might.once have 
been, the voice itself is still 
very much in bloom, and 
commanded every bit of the 
respect of which the words 
themselves spoke in “Alma 
grande” K578. 

Miss Glover tailored re- 
sponsive instrumental ensem- 
ble to match the singer for 
both composers, and left her 
five string principals and two 
horn-players to their own 
devices in Mozart's F major 
Divertimento, K247. More 
could have been made of the 
varied character in the open- 
ing movement, and the florid 
violin line in tbe Adagio 
needed a lift, but the overall 
elegance became spiked with a 
likeable dash of impudence io 
the finale. .

Alert exhilaration 



Oaiiv Mail 

A Chorus of 


At the National Theatre last 
August and now in this su- 
perbly recast production, Alan 
Ayckbourn’s play supplies one 
of those precious occasions 
■rhea theatre-going ceases to 
be a passive occupation. 

From its opening — with the 
English theatre's most cele- 
brated finale — through every 
laceraiingly comic manoeuvre 
relating the private lives of a 
Yorkshire amateur opera 
group to the plot of The 
Beggar's Opera, the piece . 
keeps you in a state of alert 
exhilaration. Attention con- 
stantly shifts between the lives 
of the characters and the 
wizardry of the structure, and 
between jokes at the expense 
of these affluent citizens pass- 
ing themselves off as tarts and 
highwaymen and the beauty 
they create whenever they 
launch into Gay's songs. 

To a rare degree even for 
this author the effect depends 
largely on a sense that the 
whole thing may collapse at 
any moment: particularly in 
the case of the central charac- 
ter, Guy. a total nonentity, 
paralyzed with shyness, who

nevertheless makes it through 
the operatic ranks to the star 
role and picks up an offstage 
Polly and Lucy. 

One point about Guy is that 
he is a white sheet on which 
the other characters inscribe 
their own fantasies. As Jim 
Norton plays him. despile his 
gauche mackintosbed figure 
and primly closed knees, he 
does carry a sense of secretive- 
ness which could be mistaken 
for supressed passion or 
knowledge of some vital busi- 
ness information. 

His real secret is that he 
longs to act. and here Mr 
Norton bursts marvellously 
out of his shell. The cramped 
stance and curate's smile give 
way to the rash self-display of 
someone who has been mak- 
ing feces in the mirror all his 
life. And it is one sad message 
of the play that, however be 
may develop from crude pan- 
tomime to swashbuckling ele- 
gance, mastery of the stage is 
no guarantee against humilia- 
tion and disaster in private 

He is wonderfully partnered 
by Colin Blakely as the group’s 
Welsh director, first seen 
breaking into Guy's audition 
with a song he cannot resist 
tinging himself It is a case of 
paralysis meeting impetuous 
spontaneity, and Blakely plays 
it with volcanic emotional 
range, sinking to his knees in 
mock-Roman suicides at 
times of despair, bellowing 
abuse at the company before 
showering them with paternal 
affection; but, outside this 
theatrical obsession, a guile- 
less innocent who responds 
with utter bewilderment to 
finding himself stabbed in the 
back. Polly Hemingway, Da- 
vid Cardy and Moira Red- 
mond are conspicuous among 
a company whom Ayckbourn 
has directed with a comic 
precision that brings even the 
props to life.

action to put pressure on 
Pretoria to negotiate political 

Mis Thatcher has always 
resisted economic sanctions, 
and the EPG was set up al the 
Commonwealth Heads of 
.Government conference at 
Nassau in October largely 
because of her opposition to 
them. However, Mr Fraser 
said it was in Britain's “specif- 
ic interests” to join in Com- 
monwealth action. 

If a bloodbath were allowed 
to develop all Britain's eco- 
nomic interests in South Afri- 
ca would be lost within 10 or 
12 years, as would those of 
West Germany and the US. 
The cost to Britain would be 
far greater than the loss of 
some jobs caused by the 
introduction of sanctions. 

Mr Fraser said he was not in 
favour of a full trade embargo, 
but suggested the breaking of 

air links, tightening of finan- 
cial restrictions, and the ban- 
ning of purchases of bulk 
commodities such as coal, 
uranium, and food and agri- 
cultural produce. 

The report says the question 
for government heads is not 
whether economic measures 
will compel change. “It is 
already the case that their 
absence and Pretoria's belief 
that they need not be feared, 
defers change. Is the Com- 
monwealth to stand by and 
allow the cyde of violence to 
spiral? Or will it take concert- 
ed action of an effective kind? 
Such action may offer the last 
opportunity to avert what 
could be the wont bloodbath 
since the Second World War.” 

Asked if a major crisis 
would be caused in the Com- 
monwealth if Britain refused 
to join in sanctions. General 
Obasanjo said he did not think 
it would come to that because 

Mrs Thatcher would not like 
to be known as the British 
leader who broke up the 
Commonwealth. - 

The seven-member 
EPGbegan its work in 
December.rt insists it did all 
in its power to enable Pretoria 
to co-operate in a dialogue. 

Among factors which per- 
suaded members they could 
not succeed were a change of 
attitude among South African 
ministers. This manifested it- 
self in the re-appearance of a 
demand fora renunciation of 
violence as a pre-condition for 
negotiations, whereas they 
had seemed to be ready to 
accept merely a “suspension” 
of violence. 

The work of the EPG will be 
reviewed, and policies dis- 
cussed at a Commonwealth 
meeting in London, probably 
on August 2. Mrs Thatcher 
will be under intense pressure 
to agree to support sanctions 

at, if not before, that meeting. 

Hie- group’s fundamental 
conclusion is dial “despile 
appearances and statements to 
the contrary, the South Afri- 
can Government is not yet 
ready to negotiate such a 
future, except on its own 
terms. Those terms, both in 
regard to objectives and mo- 
dalities, fell far short of rea- 
sonable black expectations 
and well-accepted democratic 
norms and principles . . .

"The blacks have had 
enough of apartheid. They are 
no longer prepared to submit 
to its oppression; discrimina-

can no longer stomach being,

Berisford, the commodity bro- 
ker, and jointly developed 
with London & Edinburgh 

It is the first time that 
securities in a single commer-

fered for sale in Britain. 

Billingsgate is a 185,000-sq- 
ft building. It will be occupied 
by Samuel Montagu, the mer- 
chant bank, which is paying a 
rent of £5 million a year for a 
35-year lease with a review 
every five years. The former 
fish market was sold separate- 
ly to Citicorp for£10 milli on.

Sachs and Baring will make a 
secondary market in the 
bonds and preference shares 
in London, and they are 
making a 20-year commit- 
ment to it. 

The terms of the offer are 

a 20-year maturity and with a 
fixed yield of 1.15 per cent 
over gilts, representing 60 per 
cent of the total capital raised. 
The yield to maturity is put at

There will be an issue of 
25.79 million cumulative pref- 
erence shares at iOOp a share 
with an initial dividend of 5.9 
per cent. The initial yield on 
the building is 62 per cent. 

Future dividends are linked 
to rental income from the 
offices which could now be 
worth £6 million a year. The 
shares' capital value is a 
percentage of the building’s 
value, giving the investor foe 
equivalent of a freehold 

Management costs are not

oil and

Burmah Oil, which began 
life 100 years ago drilling for 
oil on the banks of the 
Irrawaddy in central Burma, 
yesterday agreed to sell sub- 
stantially the whole of its oil 
and gas interests to Premier 
Consolidated Oilfields. In re- 
turn Burmah will take a 25 per 
cent stake in Premier through 
the issue of new shares plus 

The disposal values 
Burmah's oil and gas subsid- 
iaries at £19.6 million and is in 
line with the company's strate- 
gy of concentrating on Castrol 
and speciality chemicals. In 
1985 oil and gas production 
accounted for just 12 per cent 
of Burmah's trading profits. 

The package includes 
Burmah's only significant oil- 
producing assets — its stakes 
in the declining North Sea 
Thistle and Deveron fields — 
and exploration interestsin 19 
British offshore and 20 on- 
shore licences, and in fields in 
the U S Colombia. 

In foe first six months of 
2986 Burmah’s oil and gas 
subsidiaries made trading 
losses of £1.5 million com- 
pared with profits of £13.1 
million for foe whole of 1985. 
Burmah's oil and gas interests 
in Pakistan, held through an 
associated company, are not 
included in tbe package.

The brave new world 
of Billingsgate 

Jn the next paragraph the 
government report says: “At 
his meeting with the LME in 
June 1985, the DTI official 
concerned was therefore re- 
peating warnings already giv- 
en by the Bank of England. 
Tbese warnings were known 
10 brokers, though not an 
heeded them. It appears, how- 
ever, that the LME chairman 
did not pass this warning on.”

Baring Brothers and Goldman Sachs's 
decision to be first in the market for a 
new kind of security — an office 
building in the City ofLondon — is a 
brave step in uncharted territory. The 
property industry has been building 
up to this for some time, arguing that 
there is a need for more liquidity in an 
investment market which has seen a 
distinct lack of interest from institu- 
tional purchasers worried about lack- 
lustre performance and large illiquid 

The Baring Brothers/Goldman 
Sachs vehicle, a single-asset property 
company offering deep discount 
bonds and preference shares, albeit 
listed in Luxembourg, has the virtue 
ofbeing simple, easily understood and 
not requiring the expensive establish- 
ment of a new secondary market. 

The merchant banks will maintain a 
secondary market in London for the 
life of the bond which should give 
investors essential liquidity and deal- 
ing spread. The initial yield on 
Billingsgate, the new glass offices 
being sold for SW Berisford, the 
commodity broker, is put at a 
reasonable 6.2 per cent Investors are 
being asked to pay a small premium 
for preference shares on which the 
initial dividend is 5.9 per cent, for the 
privilege of having a stake in a 
building which they could not afford 
to buy outright This compares with a 
recent yield of 2.31 per cent on shares 
in Wates City of London Properties, 
tbe company entirely comprised of 
City offices, the nearest comparable. 

Alternative ideas for selling stakes 
in large expensive developments put 
forward by the Royal Institution of 
Chartered Surveyors, Mr John 
Barkshire's Mercantile House, and 
County Bank with Richard Ellis 
require the creation of a new second- 
ary market In the former two 
instances, a change in the law is also 

Goldman Sachs and Baring Broth- 
ers appear to have got the vehicle right 
but what of its payload? Billingsgate 
(not including the former fish market 
earlier sold to Citicorp for £10 
million) will net SW Berisford £59 
million, money it will be glad to see. 
The Q’ty office market is booming 
ahead of big bang and Billingsgate 
could probably now be let for consid- 
erably more than the £5 million a year 
rent agreed in 1984 with its tenant, 
Samuel Montagu, the merchant hank. 
The same may not be true of Princess 
House, Berisford’s refurbishment of a 
1960s office block which may be sold 
in tbe same way as Billingsgate if that 
is successful 

Investors must be aware that City 
office rents are still under half the 
level they were in 1973 in real terms, 
albeit growing fast and that big bang 
could result in a continuing demand 
for huge amounts of space or that it 
could peter out, leaving little room for 
future rental growth in large develop- 

The quality of buildings sold by 
whatever form of in vestment device is 

crucial to the success of such a market. 
The possibility of selling securities or 
units in single buildings, whether they 
be offices or retail developments, 
should not be looked upon by owners 
as a way of ridding themselves of the 
less than best while keeping prime 
property in their portfolios. The 
dictum Caveat Emptor should apply 

Jobs pessimism 

The continuing if modest rise in the 
underlying rate of unemployment this 
year is undoubtedly puzzling the 
Government and especially Lord 
Young. The main trouble is that, 
enterprise culture or no, the rate of job 
creation is not as high as hoped. That 
can be put down to lower growth in 
the economy, but the comprehensive 
new study by Sir Austin Bide's 
Occupations Study Group, which has 
quizzed more than 3,000 employers 
about their forecasts to the year 1990, 
suggests longer-term reasons. 

Bigger employers in particular are 
now wedded to jobless growth — 
squeezing more from less — rather 
than outright expansion. This study 
also emphasizes more than previous 
ones bow much of the expansion of 
small busineses is a direct replace- 
ment for jobs in larger firms, either by 
sub-contracting or competition. 
Moreover, the process of job reduc- 
tion by new working methods and 
technologies remains the employers* 
favourite method of improving 
competitiveness . 

There is also some suggestion that 
takeover fever is costing jobs that a 
more determined application of 
merger policy might retain. 

The OSG study gives broadly 
similar answers to the exercise, based 
on macro-economic models and pro- 
duced by the Warwick University 
Institute of Employment Research 
last autumn, but it is even more 
gloomy for the Government Overall, 
it forecasts a loss of jobs instead of 
stability chiefly because it envisages 
greater job losses in manufacturing, 
agriculture and transport and commu- 
nication because of the effect of 
labour-saving technologies and work- 
ing methods, areas where the em- 
ployer-based forecasts might be 
expected to have the biggest edge. It 
also foresees an even greater switch 
from full-time employment in 
production industries to part-time 
employment in services. If this is 
correct, given the Department of 
Employment’s own estimates of 
growth in the labour force, unemploy- 
ment would reach 3.9 million by 1990 
on present policies and measures. The 
straw for Lord Young to grasp is that, 
however sophisticated, such studies 
cannot fully allow for an explosion of 
new businesses that fail to go bust in 
the accustomed numbers. That, how- 
ever, is strictly a straw. Sir Austin's 
well-intentioned exercise, studiedly 
non-political and eschewing any 
recommendations is, partly for those 
reasons, likely to prove highly politi- 
cal in its impact, and bard to dismiss.

have been celebrating. 

And who could blame them? 

As you can see from the figures above all 
three divisions of Allied-Lyons made record 
pre-tax profits. 

Overall pre-tax profits increased by 23% 
to £269.5 million. 

Earnings per share from operations rose 
by 31%. And dividends were up 27%. ; 

Ample cause for a knees-up in anyone’s

Streamlining is correct 
medicine for Beecham 

Beecham yesterday unveiled 
Its long-awaited strategic re- 
view of operations. It intends 
to . concentrate on its core 
businesses in health products 
and persona] care. 

The corollary of this is that 
several unrelated or unprofit- 
able. businesses will go. ’ It 
appears that more than -50 
potential purchasers have ex- 
pressed an interest in the 
home improvements prod- 
ucts business, the largest of 
the operations to be sold. 
This is a collection of several 
companies in activities rang- 
ing from adhesives to 
floorcoveringSw DAP -and 
Roberts, acquired in 1983 
and 1984 respectively for a 
total of $150 million (£100 
miUion), form the biggest, 
part of this division. 

The Germaine Monieil 
cosmetics and fragrances 
business in the US, wmch has - 
been making a loss since 
1981, is to be sold. Also up for 
sale is the Fin dialer Mackie 
Todd wine business, with its 
Findlater’s Scotch whisky 
and Todd's gin. Its agency 
agreements with Campari 
and Reray Martin will limit 
the range of acceptable 

The preliminary results to 
March 1 986, also announced 
yesterday, confirmed the 
need for action. Pretax profit 
was fiat: £303.8 million com- 
pared with £299.8 million in 
the previous year. Turnover 
was up 13.7 per cent to £2.6 

The contribution to trading 
profit of £24 millioD attribut- 
able to the acquisition of the- 
Nortbcliff Thayer over-the- 
counter medicines business 
was more than offset by 
adverse currency movements 
of £27 million. Stripping out 
these two items, organic 
growth in 1985-86 was 5 per 
cent. Over-the-counter medi- 
cines showed the fastest 
growth rate of 38 per cent. 

Beecham will be concen- 
trating on the businesses h 
knows best. It will speed up 
the development and launch 
of new drugs, principally by 
investing in shortening the 
clinical trials stage. On the 
consumer products side, it 
will step up marketing 

The businesses earmarked 
for disposal will be sold as 
soon as possible, but the 
benefits will be seen in 1987 
rather than in 1986. For this 

kenzie, forecasts pretax profit 
of £330 million. This includes 
a_fon year from Northcliff 
Thayer, and assumes further 
adverse currency movements 
and substantial rationaliza- 
tion costs above the Hm». 

The shares are on a pro- 
spective multiple of 16, 
which fairly reflects the po- 
tential of the group. Never- 
theless, there will be con- 
siderable interest over the 
next year as disposals and 
rationalizations are announ- 
ced, beginning with today’s 
expected announcement on 
the soft drinks business. - 


Westland is getting on better 
in the investment co mm uni- 
' ty than it did in the political 
arena. Confusion and uncer- 
tainty has given way to 
confidence and optimism 
since the Sikorsky and Fiat 

That at least is how the 
City saw Westland yesterday, 
when the shares rose 15p to 
86p. The interim figures, 
however, contained little to 
support new buying. 

. Profits were up from £4.8 
million to £7.8 nullioo before 
tax for the six months to 
March 31. But a £4 milli on 
cut to £2.5 milli on in re- 
search, development and 
launch costs accounts for all 
that increase and more. Trad- 
ing profits were down. 

The company said it was 
on an improving trend but it 
has to reduce costs sun 

New orders are few, though 
work on the EH101, tike naval 
helicopter under develop- 
ment in conjunction with 
Agusta of Italy, is continuing. 

The company claims to 
have a debt 10 equity ratio of 
only 40 per cent bat it 
includes only long-term debt 
in its calculations. Total bor- 
rowings are thought to exceed 
shareholders’ funds. 

Tbe second half will benefit 
from the delivery of 21 
Westland 30/160 helicopters 
to India, enabling the compa- 
ny to write back £10 jnjfflion. 

Until the company cuts 
costs further and wins new 
orders, little can be said for 
the shares. 

James Finlay 

year. Janies Cook, analyst at 
the stockbroker Wood Ms 

Despite James Finlay’s ef- 
forts to diversify, the teaprice 

.. . remains the. ovnwhelniiQg 

r ood Max> influence on the company's 

financial performance. Last 
year, the Kenyan crop 
reached record levels ana 
Bangladesh was substantially 

But the average tea price 
dropped to half the previous 
year’s and the contribution 
from plantations dived from 
almost £25 million to £2 
. million, including £2 million 
of losses from Bangladesh 
where the tea season coincid- 
ed with the worst prices. Tea 
trading also suffixed, and was 
down by more than £1 

As if that were not enough, 
last year also saw a halving in 
tbe ofl price and Finlay's 
energy-related interests col- 
lapsed into losses. The Sea- 
forth offshore supply vessels 
suffered from the overcapaci- 
ty in the North Sea while the 
oil and gas-producing inter- 
ests in Britain and the United 
Stales were unprofitable at 
tbe lower prices. Together, 
these activities contributed 
losses of £3 million, com- 
pared with profits of £13 
million in 1984. 

Against th« background, 
the tuning would have been 
right for ratals other activi- 
ties to stage- ahead, but this 
was not to be. The banking 
and finance division slumped 
from £2.5 million to 

The reasons were unquan- 
tified but “substantial” pro- 
visions at SH Lock in 
Australia and a fall in 
Finlay's trading, manufactur- 
ing and merehanting activi- 
ties from £8 million to £5' 
million. Only the confection- 
ery and beverage manufac- 
turing sector managed to 
improve its performance, up 
by 15 per cent to £3. 2 million. 
At least the company main- 
tained its dividend . 

The outlook for the full 
year is still uncertain. Tea 
prices have firmed and it is 
conceivable that tbe drought 
across northern India will 
lead to a supply shortfall 
when the higher-quality teas 
come on the market. 

The shares, down 4p at 
77p. are at a substantial 
discount to the revalued as- 
sets of 126.4p but tbe historic 
p/e ratio of 14 and the 7.7 per 
cent yield are already antici- 
pating doubled profits this 
year. Now would be the time 
fora bidder to enter the fray. 
Failing that, Finlay’s fortunes 
are in the lap of Sheikh 
Yamaxri = and the weather 
gods.- • 


Doubts over US economy 

By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 

A drop in retail sales last 
month and a gloomy official 
survey of investment inten- 
tions has revived doubts 
about the US economy.' Some 
analysts expect renewed eco- 
nomic weakness to pave the 
way for a discount rate cut . 

US retail sales fell by 0.1 per 
cent last month, against expec- 
tations of a 1 per cent rise. 
This was tbe third monthly 
fall this year, compared with a 
0.4 per cent increase in April. 

Sales of building materials 
and petrol declined, but car 

sales rose. However, sales 
figures from Detroit m the 
first week of June suggest that 
this has not been maintained. 

- A Commerce Department 
survey of investment pros- 
pects predicted a 13 per cent 
drop in real capital spending 
this year, compared with the. 
0.9 percent riseexpected-in its 
last survey, conducted in Jan- 
uary and February. Tbe latest 
survey of investment inten- 
tions was carried out in April 
and May. 

The fell in retail sales hit the 

dollar against both theyen and 
mark, despite hints of Bank of 
Japan intervention. The 
pound foiled to benefit, easing 
a fraction to $13265. 

London money market 
rates were steady ahead of the 
inflation figures to be. an- 
nounced today.

ment secretary, Mr Malcolm

James Capel, the broker, to try 
and convince fond managers 
that they should support the 
deal But the hard-pressed 
institutions are starting to take 
a firm line with companies 
and are becoming choosy 
about the number of fund- 
raising exercises they are wili- 
ingto underwrite. 

Too many of them are now 
finding that their liquidity is 
being stretched to the limit 
and that may soon be forced to 
sell part of their portfolios to 
meet underwriting obliga- 
tions- Most of them will 
require all the spare cash 
available to subscribe for new 
issues such as the Trustee 
Savings Bank, British Gas and 
Royal Ordnance, which are 
due later this year. 

Dee's brokers now look as 
though they might be hard put 
to find a home for all those 
new shares unless the market 

eventually closed only 3.0 up

The state of emergency in

Small feel pinch in export squeeze 

By Teresa Poole 

Small exporters are likely to face higher 
financing charges if the Government 
presses ahead with plans to reduce the 
level of support for export fina nce. 

The Bank of England has told the 
banks that the profit margin paid by the 
Government to the banks on export 
finance deals must be reduced This is 
the system whereby the banks lend 
money to overseas buyers of British 

At the moment export credit to foreign 
countries, on terms of more than two 
years and backed by the Export Credit 
Guarantee Department, is subsidized

Office art 
pays off 
for three 

By Pets Leri 

In 1984 Sonia Coode-Adams, an artist, 
bought a collection of contemporary 
paintings for the new offices of her 
husband's stock broking firm, L. Messel 
& Co. This proved to be such a success 
that people suggested she should start a 
business buying collections of paintings 
for offices. 

Now, 14 months after she set up 
Coode-Adams Martin Associates, a part- 
nership with another artist. Lydi Martin, 
they have a turnover of £98,288. Shortly 
after starting they took m a third partner, 
Mary Wiliams, who had worked in 
publishing and had completed a course 
in business studies and communications 
after her husband tod died. 

Each has been repaid the £1,500 
original capital invested in the business 
and taken out another £1,000. Most of 
the profit has so far been ploughed tack 
into the business to buy electronic 
typewriters, catalogues, etc. 

They began by sending brochures to 
City firms which were planning to move 
offices. About one in three was interested 
in their service. Clients included Gba- 


■ A trade delegation from the U rated 
States has this month braved the threat of 
Libyan terrorism to visit Britain in 
search of small and medium sized 
companies which are interested in 
investing in New Jersey. There are 
already 1 58 firms with manufacturing 
facBities or subsidiaries in New Jersey, 
including many blue chip names such 
as Jaguar, Wedgwood, tCI, and 
Beecnam. But Mrs Ming Hsu, the 
governor’s special hade representative, 
said she wanted to make contact with 
smaller businesses. 

On offer are a number of subsidized 
financial packages under the. state’s 
various urban development schemes. 

The New York and New Jersey Port- 
Authority is offering up to 100 per cent 

profit margin to the banks. On sterling 
finance the margin is % per cent and on 
other currencies it is between % and 1 per 

This subsidy means that the banks do 
not charge British companies for costs 
incurred putting together the financial 
packages, which can indude travelling 
abroad, negotiating with the ECGD, and 
drawing up the contracts. In particular, 
companies are not chained for work on 
the large number of export deals which 
fall through before completion. 

The proposed new level for the maigin 
is 'A per cent on sterling and 1/16 per 
cent for other currencies. One export 
financier said: “They are forgetting that 

we are not dealing with a straight loan. 
We are talking about deals which can 
take up to three years to negotiate. The 
reduction in revenue is going to be so 
vast that the banks will have to start 
charging for expenses.” 

This would hit especially smaller deals - 
where tte costs tend to to proportionally 
higher. Passing this on would increase 
the company’s bidding costs, making the 
price of its goods abroad less 

An initial meeting between the Bank of, 
England and the clearing banks was held 
last month and discussions win continue 1 
over the next few weeks.

Geigy Pharmaceuticals, RAC Club, Al- 
lied Lyons, Tala Pension Fund and G-T. 
Management Amounts invested by 
companies have ranged from £ 1,000 for 
one painting to £35,000 for a collection. 

Sonia Coode-Adams said: “We visit 
clients twice, once to give them a 
presentation, then to discuss the image 
they want to create. We show them a 
book of photographs of paintings and it 
is astonishing how each company’s taste 
has differed.” 

Do companies look upon the collec- 
tion as an investment? “The quality of 
the paintings, mostly by live artists, 
means that they could be an investment. 
But the reasons a company wants a 
collection of paintings seems to vary. 
Messel wanted paintings to cheer up the 
walls, James Capel, the stockbrokers, 

loans for expansion by forek?) companies 
and can arrange packages of up to 
$50 million. Urban enterprise grants of up 
to $2 million per project are available 
at interest rates as low as 4 per cent .

wanted paintings by well-known artists 
— we were able to buy a Matthew Smith 
painting for them for £3,000 — while the 
accountants Coopers & Lybrand, wanted 
to support young artists. 

They buy from galleries and direct 
from the artist and charge a flat 20 per 
cent' on all transactions. Additional 
costs, such as paying for a catalogue, re- 
naming when necessary, insurance and 
transport, rarely exceed £1,000.

That depended on whether 
the rents ofOOO a year exceeded

The landlords submitted that 
such a construction would make 
it extremely difficult to ascertain 
the letting value because the 
court would have to lake into 
account an infinite variety of 
combinations of rent and pre- 
mium rather than seek the rack 
rent from comparable lettings of 
similar properties at the time of

The premium was to be 
decapitalized and expressed in 
annual terms and thus the 
letting value of the premises was 
the sum of the rent payable and 
the decapitalized annual value 
of the premium. 

On that calculation the letting 
value of each house would 
exceed £300 and thus the rents 
of £200 would be less than two- 
thirds of the letting value and 
the tenants would be emitted to 
purchase the freeholds. 

In his Lordship’s opinion 
“letting value” was to be given 
the broad construction for 
which the tenants had con- 
tended. There were basically

Mrs Thatcher may be hinting 
strongly that she is han g in g on 
until early to mid- 1 988 for the 
next general election, but it is 
to that election that the pri- 
vate sector is looking, slightly 
nervously, for its future. 

For the problems affli cting 
the private sector — Burned 
growth, rising costs, conflicts 
between the insurers and the 
private hospital groups, and 
worries among the big compa- 
ny subscribers about the size 
of their medical insurance 
bills — look unlikely to change 
much between now and then. 

Few in the private sector 
expect the Government to do 
anything much to help to bale 
it out before an election. The 
private sector's constant plea 
for tax relief on insurance 
premiums for those past re- 
tirement age has been repeat- 
edly turned down and does 

The public's fears 
continue to grow 

not fit in with the Chancellor’s 
basic aim of simplifying the 
tax system. 

Clear incentives for private 
health care would only in- 
crease the public’s doubts that 
the NHS is safe in the 
Government's hands. But-the 
outcome of the general elec- 
tion could hold big changes for 
the private sector, for its good 
or ill. 

There is a strong tendency 
among those in the private 
medical world to argue that 
the Government has done 
little to help it except provide* 
words of encouragement 

truth. Since 1979 the (jlpvera- 
ment has abolished the Health 
Services Board, which im- 
posed controls on the size and 

location of private hospitals. 
It has allowed all consultants, 
hot just those with pan-time 
NHS contracts, to undertake 
private practice at up to IQ per 
cent of their NHS income. 
Employer-paid health insur- 
ance for those earning below 
£8,500 is no longer a taxable 
benefit. The growth of private 
hospitals has been encouraged 
by allowing them to qualify 
for tax concessions under the 
Business Expansion Scheme. 

In a sense the Government 
has freed the market for 
private health and the market 
has gone slightly nred With 
the NHS seen as under acute 
pressure, there has been an 
explosion in the numbers 
insured, up from 2.4 million at 
the end of the 1984, to about 
5.4 m3 lion now. 

There has also been a large 
expansion in the number of 
private hospital beds from 
4,000 to nearer 10,000, as 
over-optimistic predictions in 
the early 1 980s of the numbers 
likely to be insured has pro- 
duced over-supply. 

Far the past few years, 
however, the total of those! 
insured has been growing at 
only 3 to 5 per cent as the cost i 
of private medical insurance 
has soared. Despite attempts 
to control private hospital 
costs, the combined effect of 
these together with a higher 
claims rate by those insured, I 
more high-tech medicine and | 
increased doctors’ fees, is that ; 
private medical inflation is 
still running at 15 to 18 per] 
cent, when inflation generally 
is down to mound 3 per cent 
Further stiff increases in pre- 
miums are likely next month. 

What some in the private 
sector are hoping for— chiefly 
among the private hospitals — 
is the return . of another 
Thatcherite government 
which would take up some of : 
the more radical ideas that 
were being kicked around on 
the Conservative right during 
the long gestation of the 
Government’s discussion doc- 
ument On primary health care. 

The introduction of- some 
sort jof voucher that could be 
spent in-theNHS, oriouldbe 
lopped up and spent in private 
hospitals,; - could radically 
change the face of private 
medicine, 'although it is far 

Keeping an eye 
on all the staff 

Good health at the workplace 
has always been a private 
affair. None of the relevant — 
and expanding — services is 
available through the NHS. 

'It can cost £250,000 to 
replace the 45-year-old execu- 
tive lost through a fatal heart 
attack. And compensation 
claims for work-related health 
problems now exceed acci- 
dents as the major cause of 
company liability claims. So 
spending on health and safety 
matters can be more 

Although health care at 
work used to be mainly con- 
fined to screening of execu- 
tives, or of workers in 
obviously hazardous indus- 
tries, it now includes condi- 
tions arising from the “sick 
building” syndrome, or from 
the introduction of VDUs. 

Hence the development of 
specialist services catering for 
any and every aspect of health 
and safety at work. Several 
such resources are new within 
the last year, after the an- 
nouncement of a batch of 
forthcoming regulations 
which in their various ways 
tighten up requirements for 
occupational health services. 

The most comprehensive 
package available comes from 

• AMI Occupational Health, a 
recently-created subsidiary of 
American Medical Interna- 
tional. It provides anything 
from a base information ser- 
vice, to a one-off risk assess- 

sS ment survey, or contract 
. .■ staffing of a full-time oecupa- 
tionai health service. 

Prices duly reflect the 
customer’s needs. They start 
at £44 for an annual subscrip- 
tion to Health and Safety 
■ Focus, a monthly update on 
relevant literature and forth- 
coming legislation. A one^day 
training exercise for company 
> staff -would con between £350 
. and £450. 

Specialist personnel, includ- 
ing occupationally-trained 
doctors and nurses, occupa- 
tional hygienists and health 
and safety, consultants, can 
also be supplied on contract 
along wife the necessary back- 

• up administration. Although 
the core team is based ' at . 

- I Prioty Dene in Birmingham, 
’/it operates anywhere ra the 
t ./ country and can call on associ- 
aied AMI facilities. The one ft 
= / is most likely, to use is AMI 
Physiometncs in Oeacfle, 
which sperializesinthe newly- . 
developed AMI Lifestyle 
. . Programme. 

This provides a modular- 
based type of health screening, 
with particular emphasis cm 
the prevention of coronary 
heart disease. “A 25-year-old 
-requires a different type of 
screening from a 55-year-old 
company director," says Dr 
Bruce Davies, who helped to 
pioneer the programme. 

“Our average client is the 
male or female executive of | 
around 40, who is under a 
significant amount of stress, 

’ and usually doesn’t take much 

“We know that 8 per cent of ] 
males between 40 and 60 have 
CHD without apparent symp- 
toms and 85 per cent in this 
group have at least one of the 
associated stress factors. 
These factors can be changed 
or removed and we’re unique. I

as eye -teats for VDU.

But none of the parties’ 
policies, to the private sector 
after the general election is yet 
defined clearly. 

Labour, fora start, would be 
likely to remove the existing 
tax incentives for private hos- 
pitals and those privately 
insured, and end charitable 
status for some private hospi- 
tals. A Labour government 
might well insist that private 
hospitals provide all their own 
X-ray and pathology facilities 
and round-the-dock in-house 
medical cover. 

Some on the Labour left are 
keen to take over those private 
hospitals that, they believe 
could benefit the NHS. But 
with unemployment, educa- 
tion and more resources for 
the NHS. all . candidates for 

it must whether 

such a move would rank high 

in the list of priorities. 

An all-out assault on private 
health care seems unlikely, not 
least because approaching six 
million people, or more than 
one in ten of the population, 
are likely to be insured. 

Labour might, however, in- 
sist that consultants work 
either privately or in the NHS, 
but not do both as at present. 
The effects of such a move 
would be highly unpredict- 
able; and it is worth noting 
that the idea has also been 
canvassed from the right as a 
way of boasting the private 
sector, not damaging it. 

A hung Parliament would 
be unlikely to produce radical 
change. The Alliance parties' 
policies on private health care 
are even less dearly defined 
than those of the other two. 
But the Alliance would be 
unlikely to support moves 
intended to increase greatly 
the size of the private sector, 
or one aimed at forcing it to

Squeezing the charitable hospitals 

The past decade has seen an have the marketing skills and 
extraordinary burgeoning of incentive structures necessary 

activity in private hospital 
provision. Since 1979 devel- 
opment has been rapid with 
the number of acute indepen- 
dent hospitals rising from 149 
to 304 and seven more are due 
to open this year. The number 
of beds has increased by half 
as much again, 7,000 of them 
coming into use during the 
past two years. 

The Association of Inde- 
pendent Hospitals, which rep- 
resents all kinds of private 
providers from large multina- 
tional groups with UK inter- 
ests to family-run nursing 
homes, says the trend towards 
commercial profit-making or- 
ganizations in both acute and 
long-stay care can be expected 
to continue. Charitably found- 
ed institutions, the Associa- 
tions says, will feel an ever- 
greater squeeze. 

The trend was well exempli- 
fied last year. Seven out of 1 1 
private acute-care hospitals 
which changed hands were 
bought by American hospital 
interests. The six US compa- 
nies operating in Britain now 
control nearly a quarter of 
acute bed provision. 

In 1986, the trend contin- 
ues. There will be 665 more 
beds by Christmas. But there 
have been, and will continue 
to be, closures. The charitable 
hospitals cannot keep finan- 
cial pace with new medical 
technology, the capital costs of 
modernization and the econo- 
mies of scale. Nor do they

Enter the age of 
the hospital chain 

In 1979, charitable hospitals 
contained almost three quar- 
ters of private beds; today, 
although they have more beds 
in absolute terms, their per- 
centage share has fallen by 

A notable example of the 
fate that can overtake even the 
biggest and the best of the 
charitable hospitals is illus-

Masonic, at Ravenscourt

within the movement, which 
have yet to settle down in the 

A decision on the 
hospital's future has been 
repeatedly delayed and is still 
awaited. Unless it comes soon 
and someone takes it over “it 
wiD slowly but surely die”, 
says one seasoned observer. 

Jhis is the era of hospital 
“chains" - the health care 
corporation. Of the top six, in 
terms of bed numbers, three 
are American, including the 
market leader, AMI. 

AMI was the first American

pace with many other private

The image machines that 
pinpoint the trouble spots 

The keen, impassioned beauty 
of a great machine, wrote 
Rupert Brooke, but then he 
had never seen an MRI or a 
Uthotripter or CUSA. : 

All three of these 'are im- 
mensely expensive pieces of 
equipment which speed the 
process of diagnosis and treat- 
ment. In human terms this 
must be cost effective, though 
the cost of purchase and 
maintenance is another mat- 
ter in the equivalent of the 
medical arms race. 

In the basement of the 
Churchill Clinic, newly redec- 
orated in fashionable shades 
of pink and grey, is the MRI or 
Magnetic Resonance Imaging 
unit The machine will display 
a three-quarter dimensional 
cross section of the part of the 
body viewed - tire patient ties 
completely still and images of 

soft tissues appear, a major 
advance in detecting tumours, 
abcesses, head and neck 

Pictures of the nerve roots 
of the spine are so dear that 
there is no need for the 
injection of fluid into the 
spine (which remains for life). 
A particularly nasty injection 
into the neck in order to look 
at the brain more clearly can 
also be dispensed with. 

Thirty-two tons of iron 
surround the machine, in 
plate thicker than a ’ 
battleship’s, and it is cooled by 
htiium, which is recycled 
(helium being expensive and 
coining from difficult places 
such as Poland, Souih Africa 
and the US). While the opera- 
tors and doctors sit at their 
controls and calculators at the 
end of 10 miles of cable, the 

patient quite often fells asleep, 
lulled by the regular Weeping 
of the machine. 

The greatest danger to the 
patient is the possibility of 
having his credit card wiped 
by the magnetic force. 

We have two Litbotripter 
machines in Britain — one is 
in the London lithotripfter 
Centre in Welbeck street, pan 
of the Devonshire hospital, 
and the other is in St. 
Thomas's; supplied by BUPA 
for the benefit of NHS and 
private patients, the only hic- 
cup in treatment appearing 
when the hospital runs out of 

Ninety per cent of patients 
with kidney stones could be 
treated by this method which 
is, as they say, nan-invasive — 
no surgery — using low fre- 
quency sound waves delivered

don Uthotripter Centre at tire Devonshire Hospital 

through water to disintegrate 
the stones. After this is done it 
takes about four days — as 
opposed to a nasty operation, 
SO days in hospital, and six 
weeks off work. St Thomas's 
has just treated its thousandth 
patient, seen above celebrat- 
ing with a glass of champagne. 

Spain has four machines, 
Italy has eight. Greece has 
one, and West Germany has 
an amazing 22 — enough, as 
Dr. Scholes, head of the St. 
Martin's group which runs the 
centre, says, to desione the 
whole of Europe. 

As a patient you won't lay

Hospital’s CUSA — the 

A quicker cure 

Cavitron Ultrasonic Surgical 
System — because you will be 
under an anaesthetic and be- 
ing operated on for something 
needing an exceedingly deli- 
cate touch, like a brain tu- 
mour. The ultrasonically 
vibrating tip of the machine, 
held in the surgeon's band like 
a large pen, fragments and 
aspirates unwanted tissue. 

In a smart blue travelling 
case like a Vuinon trunk it 
travels out to the NHS in 
addition to the work, at the

you of the dentist removing 
plaque from your teeth, that's 
the origin of the technology.

People tell us that one of the 
biggest advantages of a WPA 
health insurance plan is that it's 
easy to understand. 

It consists of a simple list of 
benefits (they're corisiderable)plus 
a simple list of rates (we believe 
rather less than for most of our 
competitors' schemes). 

And that's it 

Bandings, charts and all the rest 
of the jargon that complicate most 
insurance are notable through 
^their absence. 

But knowing exactly what 
you're getting and what you're 
paying is only one of the advant- 
ages of choosing WPA. 

We've been established for over 
forty years and in that time we've 
learned a lot about providing a 
scheme for our members. 

We feel that many of them are 
friends. Certainly all of them are 

And our ma nagement and struc- 
ture are uniquely flexible. 

It means we can react quickly 

and positively to changing circum- 
stances and new developments in 
private health insurance.

“What price private health 
care?" asked Roy Forman, 
chief executive of Private 
Patients' Plan, the second 
largest health insurer, in a 
recent speech at die Industrial 
Society's conference. Provid- 
ers of private medicine, he 
warned, were in danger of 
pricing themselves out of the 

Until recently “an atmo- 
sphere of gentility and sweet- 
ness prevailed between 
insurers and hospital 
providers". Mr Forman said. 
That is certainly no longer the 

“It seems to me quite 
possible,” he continued, “that 
insurers will soon reach the 
point of challenging some 
commercial operators by re- 
fusing to give cover for treat- 
ment in particular hospitals. 

He blamed some hospitals 
and doctors for a rise in fees 

since 1982 “at a rate for 
bevond that of general 
inflation”. PPP was no longer 
picking up the tabs regardless. 
It now checked their .chums 
data extensively to pinpoint 
specialists who overcharged 
and hospitals whose patients 
“somehow, persistently, have 
a longer period of stay for^a

Bob Graham, chief execu- 
tive of the British United 
Provident Association, which , 
despite much slower percent- 
age growth than PPP, is soil 
easily the . market leader with 
70 per cent of the total private 
health care market, has also 
attacked the profit-making 
hospital groups. 

Tliere are now nearly 1 1,000 
beds in private acute hospitals 
in Britain. Half of these are 
owned by commercial con- 
cerns and half of those, Mr 
Graham points out, belong to 

foreign companies “which 
have to repatriate sufficient 
returns to satisfy their share- 
holder in their countries of

Motoring by Peter Waymark 


Sierra gets the boot from Ford 

Unless normally well in- 
formed car industrywalchers, 
not to mention lfc sneak 
picture brigade, have got it 
hopelessly wrong, the star 
exhibit on the Ford stand at 
the Paris Motor Show in 
October will be a booted 
version of the Sierra. 

For Ford, the new model, 
will be .an attempt to boost 
what so far have been disap- 
pointing Sierra sales. For the 

motoring public the arrival of 
the booted Sic 

’< i:. 

ireita will reopen 
the long running debate about 
the rival merits of saloon and 
hatchback cars. 

Go back 1 5 years or so and a 
car with a tailgate was a rare 
item. There were the Maxi and 
the Renault 16 and oneor two 
others but in the 'main the 
family car was still the con- 
ventional three-box shape, 
with one box for the engine, 
another for the passengers and 
a third for the boot 

And then, suddenly, the 
hatchback became the new 
orthodoxy. By the mid 1970s 
hardly a new car was launched 
in the popular areas of 'the 
market that did not have a 
third or a fifth door. Even 
executive cars like the Rover . 
followed the hatchback trend. 

The argument seemed over- 
whelming The hatchback was 
simply more versatile, offer- 
ing most of the advantages of 
an estate car without looking 
like one. There was not only - 
more 1 urease space to start 
with, but, by folding down the 
rear seat, the chance to in- 
crease that space still further. 

But just when the hatchback 
seemed to have conquered, 
the market research continued - 
to reveal a strong following for 
the saloon. Many motorists 
pr e fe rred the saloon's shape 
andtiked the idea of a separate 
boot, in which luggage was 
thought to be more secure. 

The car makers’s response 
was to bring out booted 
versions of their hatchbacks, 
thus catering for both de- 
mands. Ford has already been 
along the Sierra path with the 
Escort, supplementing the- 
original hatchback with foe

start as Vauxball did with the 
Cavalier. Since it has always

rometer of public taste.

According to VauxhaU re- 
search, hatchback devotees 
fed that foe vehicles have a 
sportier image and appreciate 
.their greater capacity for car- 
rying awkward loads. But 
saloons, which tend to appeal 
to older, more conservative 
buyers, have a loyal following. 
Three-quarters of those ques- 
tioned said they would buy 

In those cases where foe 
saloon followed some years 
after foe hatchback, foe hatch

ers m its class. This is not 
achieved at the expense of foe 
passengers and there is an 
impressive amount of leg and 
headroom both in the front 
and back. 

There are buitt-in roof rails 
to take any large hems not 
accommodated inside, partic- 
ularly useful as the slope of the 
tailgate does restrict foe ability 
to carry high loads. Two other 
small grumbles are that foe 
BX does not, like many estates 
nowadays, offer the versatility 
of a spht rear seat and the 
tailgate, though liftable with 
one hand, is heavy. 

One of foe glories of the car' 
is foe suspension, Citroen’s 
well-tried hydropneumatic 

For 25 years the engine 
tuning specialist Bill 
Blydenstein has been produc- 
ing cars to win rallies as well as 
offering the ordinary motorist 
foe chance to pack more 
power under foe bonnet Only 
recently, though, has he given 
serious attention to automatic 

Two-pedal cars and 
performance have not been 
traditional allies, partly be- 
cause automatics usually 
mean a loss of power but also 
because the purist likes to do 
his own gear changing, 
needs something like 
Blydenstein conversion 



Road Test 

Citroen BX Estate 

Competing with home-pro- 
duced vehicles hke foe Foid 
Sierra, VauxhaU Cavalier and 
Austin Montego but, being a 
Citroen, having a character aU 
its own, foe BX Estate happily 
complements foe excefieat sa- 
loon version and offers a 
competitive -combination of 
space, comfort and value for 
money. - . 

; It is a vehicle ideally suited 
to foe ’ needs of the modern 
family, giving more than ade- 
quate passenger and luggage 
space for four to five people, 
while not being top large to 
manoevre and park. It is a

performance and good han- 
dling and, like any Citroen, 
has an unusual facility for 
soaking up bumps oh foe iqad. 

Luggage space is generous 
enough wifo foe jrar ^Kat jq. _gaJ2o'n, with the. Jifth 
position, while with foe rear available to improve 

system based on gas springs. 
Apart from giving superb ride 
quality, dealing with bumpy 
and rotted surfaces as if they 
barely existed, it is self-level- 
ling, which means that the 
height (and handling) of the 
car is unaffected by loads. 
Moreover, foe springs become 
automatically suffer as the 
load increases. 

TheBX Estate comes with a 
choice of two petrol engines 
(1.6 and 1.9 litre) and a dteseL 
1 feared that foe 1.6 would 
make foe car a under- 
powered but not at alL 

The diesel is the most 
economical of the three ver- 
sions but the 1.6 should give 
between 30 and 35 miles to the 

overcome such objections. 

I have been trying his latest 
offering, as applied to the 1.8 
GLi version of the Vauxball 
Cavalier. The conversion 
comprises two elements, cyl- 
inder bead and high torque 
camshaft, while my test car 
also benefited from the fitting 
of a "shift 101 ”, or modifica- 
tion to the automatic gearbox, 
designed - to give crisper 
changes and prolong the life of 
foe box between overhauls. 

The combined result of the 
cylinder head and camshaft is 
to increase the engine’s brake 
horse-power from 115 to 131, 
a substantial improvement 
that is clearly reflected in the 
performance figures. Accelera- 
tion from 0 to 60m ph comes 
down from 11 seconds to 9.5 
and top speed is up from 110 
to 120 mph. 

But what matters more than 
cold figures is the fed of foe 
car from behind the wheel 
The Blyndenstein Cavalier 
automatic is a delight to drive, 
not only for its acceleration 
through the gears but its mid- 
range flexibility - very impor- 
tant for safe overtaking - and 
aU achieved with a commend- 
able smoothness and modi- 
cum of noise. 

The cost of the conversion 
is £260 for foe cylinder bead 
and £130 for die camshaft. 
The prices include fitting, 
which takes a day, but not 

VAT. The shift kit, which is 

fitted not by Blydenstein but 


the Watford firm of 
Audenham Automatics, costs 
£98, VAT again excluded. 

That makes a total of £561 
on top of foe £8,545 that the 
car originally costs, and as 

r lonar extras _go it is one of 
more worthwhile.

Glazzard holds 
on to qualify 

By Jenny MacArthnr 

Geoff Glazzard has quali- 
fied to compete in the remain- 
ing three days of the Royal 
International horse show at 
the National Exhibition Cen- 
tre m Birmingham after win- 
ning the opening class, the 
Norwich Mortgage Centre 
grades A and B championship, 

Glazzard has three horses in 
the class, but his win came on 
the one horse not owned by 
bis sponsors — Pennwood 
Fleetline, an eight-year-old 
gelding bought as a yearling by 
Fred Haim “1 didn't really 
want him," HartiU said yester- 
day, “but he was part of a 
package of three yearlings and 
as I wanted the other two I had 
to have him." The horse has 
provided Glazzard with eight 
wins this season. 

With 15 other riders in- 
volved in eleventh-hour at- 
tempts to qualify for the rest of 
the show there was intense 
competition in yesterday's 
class. Nine horses reached the 
jump-off after a straightfor- 
ward first round over a course 
designed by Maureen 

Glazzard had expected it to 
be more difficult — two of the 
winter qualifying rounds were 
“much bigger". 

Peter Morphy, a young and 
determined rider, was drawn 
first in the jump-off on Blue 
Moon, John Whitaker's for- 
mer ride. He took a gamble, 
went like the wind and hit the 
last fence. Mark Hefier, the 
runner-up yesterday, then pro- 
duced a fruitless round on 
Saucy Brown but was immedi- 
ately overtaken by Glazzard. 

Despite a strong challenge 
from Michael Whitaker, on 
My Chester (Whitaker had 
already qualified for the 
show), and James Fisher, on 
Hasty Exit. Glazzard held his 

Pennwood Fleetline has, ac- 
cording to his owner, “more 
scope" than the great 
Pennwood Forge Mill. He 
caused concern last year when 
he began slopping — most 
notably at the Royal show — 
but his consistent perfor- 
mances this season suggest 
such behaviour is behind him. 
“There's not so much pressure 
on Fleetline now, because I've 
got a good team of back-up 
horses," Glazzard said. 

One of those is the 16-year- 
old, Sunorra, once ridden by 
Steve Hadley. Glazzard had to 
dash back to his home in 
Staffordshire after winning 
yesterday to collect the mare. 


American sparring 
partner for Bruno 

Frank Bruno's call for an 
American sparring partner has 
been answered by Rufus 
‘'Hurricane'* Hadleigh, an un- 
beaten heavyweight from Pater-

Hadleigh stands 6ft 2in tan.

partner for Bruno, who wifi

James Broad will join the

Respect, ridden by Put 
Eddery, the man in form, is 
napped to gain, his second 
Sandowq success of the season 
in today's Singapore Airlines 
Non-Stop Handicap. 

The former champion jock- 
ey was also on Ray Lading's 
three-year-old midway 
through last month when they 
won a similar race in some 
style. On that occasion noth- 
ing could get in a blow at them 
from halfway and Respect 
won unchallenged from 

The 'winning margin was 
only 1*6 lengths but this does 
not reflect his superiority. 
Helawe, who finished third, 
now meets Respect on 61b 
better terms for three lengths 
which, in theory, should bring 
them much closer together. 
However, such was the ease 
with which Respect won, I 
fancy him strongly to have the 
upper hand again. 

■ After Sandown, Respect 
took on older horses at 
Goodwood where be feted 
extremely well against the 
likes of Laurie Lorman, Bollin 
Emily, Clantime and Bridge 
Street Lady. In the spring, 
three-year-olds are often run 
off their feet by older sprinters 
but not so Respect who earned 
precisely that by finishing 

Against that encouraging 
backcloth, I think that he 
should be capable of not only 
holding Helawe at bay again 
but also beating Rayhaan, who 
has been penalized for win- 
ning the Ring and Biymer 
Trophy in a blanket finish at 
Epsom eight days ago. 

Now that Jeremy Tree’s 
horses are running well again,

task of delivering the goods on 
my nap by winning the More 
Lane Maiden Stakes on 
Mytens. In his only race last 
year, my selection showed a 
lot of promise to finish third at 
Newbury in the Haynes, Han- 
son and Clark Stakes. This 
race has been a most reliable 
yardstick over the years and 
last season the runner-up was 
none other than Shabrastani. 

Today the hard core of 
Myten's opposition would ap- 
pear to comprise Amjaad, who 
cost his owner, Maktoum A1 
Maktoum. the princely sum of 
$6,500,000 as a yearling, and 
Miller's Dust. Amjaad fin- 
ished fifth behind Nino Bibbia 
on his only run at Newmarket 
while Miller’s Dust shaped 
with equal promise on his 
debut there, finishing sixth 
behind his better- fancied sta- 
ble companion, Verd- 

At York, I still give Philip a 
good chance of winning the 

Innovative Marketing Sprint 
Handicap over six furlongs 
even though his best form has 
been over only five. He has 
been in such total command

no little significance. Last 
season she was heavily backed

costly failure first time out at

but deserves another chance 
to live up to his home 

Finally, Sbarpetto's good 
win at Newbury on Wednes- 
day was a pointer to the 
chance that Paris-Tmf has of 
winning the latest race in the 
Mail on Sunday Series. My 
selection finished less than a 
length behind Sharpetto at 
York in May and has plenty of 
scope for improvement

Qy Rex Beffluny, Tennis CtHrespondeat 

The people who played and ' son to regard himself as a 
won m me Stella Artois Cham- promising youngster. By 2.45 
pionships at Queen's Club he was beginning to wonder, 
yesterday included Boris The even younger Becker, the 
Becker, Stefan Ed berg, Jimmy Wimbledon champion, was 
Connors, Tim Mayotte and hitting first services so tecnri- 


Raul Annacona. The list reads 
like a roll-call of grass court 
specialists: men who could 
win Wimbledon or at least 
terminate the hopes of some 
fended contenders. 

. Predictably the people who 
played and lost included An- 
drew Castle, of Taunton, who 
is in his first year on the circuit 
and was ill at ease in the 
company be was keeping. 
Castle did well to get through 
two rounds. Yesterday he was 
beaten 6-4, 6-1 by Annacone, 
who reached the Wimbledon 
quarter-finals in 1984. 

Castle lost his service in the 
first game of each set and took 
only 1 1 points from 
Annacone's eight service 
games. There is not much 
profit in that sort of thing. 
Castle is unfamiliar with this 
class of tennis and, conse- 
quently, his ability and deter- 
mination are not yet 
supported by much assurance. 

He was a little too slow m 
his anticipation and therefore 
had to improvise 400 often. 
This was largely a question of 
inexperience. Castle, has to get 
to know players like 
Annacone and had better do it 
quickly because they wifi also 
get to know him. 

After the match Castle said 
he had found Annacone con- 
fusing to play. Most players 
do. The variations in 
Annacone's tennis is minimal: 
in one game he serves and 
volleys and in the next he 
chips, charges and, if he can, 
volleys again. He is always 

nal in their effect that they 
were like full stops preceding 
unwritten sentences. Becker 
was also throwing himself 
about, braising the pampered 
lawn and accumulating laun- 
dry problems. Becker was 
happy to be playing on grass 
again. This was the tennis he 
understood: demanding but 
uncomplicated. He won 6-3. 
6 - 1 . 

Connors, back in action 
alter a 10-week suspension, 
was playing from memory — 
and his memory was good. He 
looked trim, fit and sharp. His 
service returns had a punch 
and precision that took us 

back to the days of well, 

come to think of it, the days of 
the old and younger Connors. 
He was conceding more than 
12 years to Guy Forget but 
played as if it were the other 
way round. 

Forget stressed that impres- 
sion by playing five games as if 
he was still on shale. The 
Frenchman is also so long- 
limbed that messages des- 
patched from the mind 
arrived a little too late in his 
feet and his racket arm. He 
was beaten 6-1, 6-3. 

Paul McNamee knows his 
trade. But he had only one 
chance to break Heiberg’s ser- 
vice, could not take it and was 
beaten 7-5, 6-3. Edberg is a 
natural athlete who probably 
serves and volleys more flu- 
ently than anybody except

For Nottinghamshire to have 
defended a total of 189 in lovely 
weather (can the summer really 
have started?) and on a good 
pitch, something fairly remark- 
able would have bad to happen. 
In the event, after Slack and 
Miller had added 89 in 28 overs 
for the first wicket, Middlesex 
did their best to make a dose 
finish of it. This although Rice 
was expensive and Hadlee took 
only one wickeL

Randall was in the picture again 
when he caught Sack in the

enough, after a rather uncertain 
start, to interest the selectors. He

rivals, lor the gold award. 
Butcher is another whose bat- 
ting (36 in 37 balls) suggested 
that he, too, might make runs 
for England at Headingley next 
week; but, as is his wont, he was 
out to an over-ambitious stroke, 
hooking at Hadlee in Hadlee’s

Universities rise to challenge

THE PARKS: Combined 
Umvisities. with seven wickets 
standing* are 225 runs behind 
the Indians. 

It was a fine morning, and tbe 
laigest crowd I have seen in the 
pane for 10 years or more 
assembled to enjoy it. The 
Universities won the toss and 

Lambe. who had opened the 
innings with him, had batted 
neatly, if more quietly, and was 
second out, caught in the slip for 
77 at 208. Both these wickets fell 
to Rutnagur, tbe son of Dicky 
Rutnagur, and he had worked 
hard for them. None of the other 
bowlers looked as good except

tween Cowdray Park (received

the Greyhounds. Cowdray won, 

The Greyhounds 1 were 
pivoted on the eight-goal Brazil- 
ian player, Silvio Novaes, who 
plays number three in 
Cowdray's high-goal line-up. 
Novaes was drawing on Lord 
Cowdray's Chilean ponies, 
brought over by the rantini

the Greyhounds' account 

Novaes’s leadership kept the 
Greyhounds ahead until half-

. By Keith Mackliu 

Lyle swept aside 
by high winds 
as scores rocket 

From Mitchell Platts, Southampton, Long Island 

Sandy Lyle became a victim 
of atrocious conditions as he 
struggled to a first round of 78 in 
the 86lh United States Open on 
the Shin-necock HiOs course 
here yesterday as the American, 
Bob Tway, took the early lead 
wiih a level-par score of 70. 

The prospect of there being 
only one winner, the course, 
became a formality as the wind 
gusted up to 50m ph and tbe rain 
slanted across the exposed fair- 
ways. “This course is tough if 
it's calm and 80 degrees.” Tway 
said. “Today yon could only 
think about survival." 

Tway, who has risen lo prom- 
inence this year by winning the 
Andy Williams Open in Feb- 
ruary and the Westchester Clas- 
sic last Sunday, had 10 single 

friend, but he was betrayed by 
missing from three feet at the 
sixth, where he look three putts. 

The dream of following in the 
footsteps of Tony JaCklm, who 
won the British Open in 1969 
then the US Open M months 
laier. was fast becoming a 
nightmare. He missed the green 
at the short seventh, taking three 
from out of the fluffy rough 
then struck his drive 50 yards off 
line at the ninth to drop another 

E uus. Greg Norman, of Ausira- 

ia, completed an excellent 71 
but Bernhard Langer. of West 
Germany, out in 39, also found 
life difficult 

Tbe fourth hole measures 408 
yards, since it was decided to 
build a new tee 30 yards further 
back, and a fairway bunker to 
the right is designed to catch the 
errant drive. Lyle missed the 
fairway, comprehensively, and 
the bunker. From the moment 
he found the ball, some 50 yards 
right of the fairway and nestling 
under the lower branches of a 
hedge, the snuggle for survival 
gan in earnest 

He had started well enough, 
albeit with the assistance of a 
1 2ft putt for his par at the short 
second, but as he picked his ball 
up to take a penalty drop it 
became abundantly clear that 
this was not to be his day. Lyle 
eventually left the fourth green 
with a six on his card. He 
courageously holed a second 
putt of nine feet at the next to 
salvage a par. There was hope, 
as long as his putter remained a 

Lyle, out in 40. which is five 
over par. had missed tbe fair- 
ways with five of his seven 
drives and he had failed to hit 
the target with his tee shots at 
the short second and seventh 
holes. He was not alone in 
succumbing to the elements. But 
as the rain came, to mix with the 
wind, so his spirit was shaken. 

Bob Eaks, the first man to tee 
off, returned an 85 and Wayne 
Smith and Thomas Cleaver, 
who partnered Eaks, each took 
77. To them, however, the 
course and the conditions repre- 
sented an examination al- 
together too foreign to handle. 
Lyle's demise was far less 
predictable. He had turned a 
drama into a crisis and that 
crisis continued as he took six at 
the tenth (409 yards) and four at 
the short Mth. 

Kenny Knox, an American 
who won for lhe first time in his 
career at the Honda Classic 
earlier this year, displayed 
commendable resilience. He 
was two under par after only 
five holes, a marvellous perfor- 
mance taking everything into 
account, ana he faltered only 
over the dosing stretch. Knox 
completed a 72, which was a 
reasonable platform on which to 
build a challenge for the

FOOTBALL: Dino Viola, presi- 
dent of the Italian club, Roma, 
says he wants to stay on as chief 
despite a bribery scandal that 
brought punishment. The 
Union of European Football 
Associations (UEFA), meeting 
in Zurich, barred Viola from

the alleged bribing of Michd

years ago. 

Viola said in a statement that 
he was sure he could vindicate

supporters. “They know well 
that all my life, I have always

Course record 
rewards Brand 

From Mel Webb, Jersey 

A change of mind brought a 
remarkable reward for Gordon 
Brand junior in the Jersey Open 
championship at La Moyc yes- 
terday. Brand was originally 
scheduled to be playing in the 
Swedish match-play champion- 
ship this week, but derided at 
the last moment to come here 
instead. He compiled a first 
round of 62, which is 10 under 
par. breaking the course record 
by three shots. 

Brand has had a good year 
and is fourth in the Epson order 
of merit. But although acknowl- 
edged as one of the finest 
sinkers off tee and fairway in 
Europe, he has sometimes 
lacked the fine edge on and 
around the green that he showed 

His round contained four 
eagles — a European PGA tour 
record — and four birdies, but 
his course record could have 
been lower. He was prevented 
from breaking 60 only when he 
dropped shots at two short holes 
and missed an eight-foot putt at 
the 15th. 

“It was fun.*' Brand said. “I 
just could not believe iL I*ve 
never done well here before 
either — I've usually spent the 
week on the go-kart track or 

The Bristol-based Scot, aged 
27. had a fine start. He hit an 
eight-iron to within three feet at 
the first hole (159 yards), then, 
at the 518-yard second, he holed 
a 20-foot pun for his first eagle. 
He saved another shot at the 

fifth and, at the next, a six-iron 
second shot hit the pin and 
landed three feet from the hole. 
One putt saved two more 
strokes to par to help him to the 
turn in 31. 

His third eagle was probably 
the most extraordinary of the 
lot. a 25-yard chip climbing a 
|2-foot hill at the back of the 
green before rolling back into 
the hole to put him eight under 
par. He dropped a shot at the 
next but recovered with a 35- 
foot putt at the 16th for his 
fourth eagle. A par then a birdie 
at the last put Brand in the 
clubhouse with a five-stroke 

Later on, a challenge to Brand 
was mounted by the Australian. 
Rodger Davis, the recent winner 
of the Whyte and Mackay PGA

New Zealand travel to 
Cheltenham tomorrow to face 
Great Britain, the holders, 
boosted by a conclusive victory 
over Australia in the first inter- 
national of the Westwood series 
for tbe MacRobertson Shield at 
the Bowdon Club, Cheshire. 

On tbe third day yesterday 
New Zealand quickly increased 
their 5-1 overnight lead when 
Bob Jackson decisively defeated 
Neil Spooner, the Australian 
captain, with a finely executed 
triple peel in the first game. 

By contrast there was some 

indifferent play m the match 
between Damon Bidertcope, of 
Australia, and his opponent 
Roger Murfitt, who took five 
and one-quaner hours to play 
their first game. Murfitt 
emerged the wjnner. 

Bidencope salvaged some 
Australian pride when he took 
the next same in 50 minutes, but 
New Zealand emphasized their 
superiority, and the strength of , 
their challenge to Great Britain, 
when Paul Stanley stylishly beat 
George Lathatp 2-0. 

Patricia Johnson, who bad 
been granted a reprieve the day 
before, won through two rounds 
of tbe British women's amateur 
championship to reach the last 
eight at West Sussex, 
Pulborough. yesterday. Her 
third round opponent will be 
Louise Briers, one of three 
marauding Australians still in 
the field. 

Miss Johnson, the English 
strokeplay champion, should 
have been involved in a play-off 
among six players on Wednes- 
day evening for the tost five 
places in the match-play draw, 
but one player foiled to answer 
the call to tbe tee, so that Miss 
Johnson qualified in 32nd, and 
last place. 

She rode her luck yesterday to 
beat Jill Thornhill, who had 
succeeded her as English 
maichplay champion Iasi 
month, by one hole and then 
overcame a Canadian of Anglo- 
Malaysian descent Joy McAvoy 
at the 16th. 

Mrs Thornhill conceded the 
first three holes with some 
uncharacteristically loose golf, 
but we recaled that she won the 
final of the English at Prince's 
from precisely the same 

It was no surprise, therefore, 
when she came to the I8ih only 
one down and hit two glorious 
woods on to the green. Miss 
Johnson meanwhile drove into 
a bunker and secured the im- 
probable half she needed only 

by way of a putt “from bloody 
miles away", as her opponent 
colourfully put il it was all of 18 
yards from the back fringe and 
struck with such pace that the 
ball hit the back of the hole, 
leapt into the air and dropped 
obediently back in. 

In three previous attempts 
Mrs Briers, the Victorian cham- 
pion, has never before got 
beyond the first round 

Ireland lost all four repre- 
sentatives, including the bolder, 
Lillian Behan, but Claire 
Hourihane was desperately un- 
lucky to meet Marie-Lame 
Taya, the French champion, in 
her most brilliant form. Miss 
Hourihane was round in 69. two 
under the formidable par of 71, 
and was still beaten at the 18th. 
No wonder the French maintain 
that Mrs Taya is the best woman 
player in Europe, amateur or

The clipping of 

wings puts 
England back 

on flightpath 

From Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent, Monterrey 

The World Cup finals had 
been «>ing to sleep is the 
soporific teat and humidity of 
this northern industrial city. 
For nine days even the so- 
called “Los Animates", the 
followers of England, had 
been quiet, subdued and rela- 
tively unobtrusive. The group 
that had been almost disre- 
garded because of the tedious, 
negative and inhibited fixtures 
it had produced was apparent- 
ly about to draw to a peaceful 

But on Wednesday after- 
noon Atlas shrugged and 
dropped the globe. Two sides, 
who had wandered around as 

if in a trance, awoke with a 

No one had envisaged a 
final table with Morocco, the 
outsiders from North Africa, 
standing on the peak. More 
than a few had not pictured 
England immediately below 
them either, not with any 
conviction anyway. The play- 
ers maintained their optimism 
but that was only to be 
expected. They admitted that 
there would be little point in 
taking part if they did not go 
out clinging to hope. 

English sides, on the foot- 
ball field at least, will never be 
short of bean, character and 
spirit. Bobby Robson's repre- 
sentatives retained those qual- 
ities against Portugal and in 
particular after they had been 
reduced to 10 men against 
Morocco, and they took them 
out again to complete their 
programme against Poland. 

That was never the flaw in 
England's challenge. It was the 
tactics, and the individuals 
who were asked to carry them 
out, that had left them “half- 
way out", as Robson con- 
cedes. Yet, disturbingly, he 
states that “if we were going 

back home on an aeroplane 
now, I would say that we had 
done our best and 1 wouldn't 
have changed a thing". 

It is ironic that the loss of 
his namesake persuaded him 
to rearrange his designs from a 
4-3-3 formation to 4-4-2. The 
numerical weakness in mid- 
field of the 4-3-3 was tempered 
by the contribution of Bryan 
Robson, the captain who ful- 
filled a dual role. He was the 
defensive bell winner and the 
attacking threat. 

But Bryan Robson has not 
been himse lf so far on the tour 
and he may not become so 
before it ends. England’s man- 
ager will say no more than “he 
is a member of the 22-man 
squad until the next game". 
He was not prepared to en- 
large on the ominously brief 
statement and he instructed 
the player to follow his muted 

Bobby Robson was equally 
discreet about his line-up 
against the Poles. The players 
themselves were informed 
only shortly before noon, a 
delay that is almost unprece- 
dented over the last four years. 
But the squad did not need to 
be told how significant the 
result might be for them, the 
nation and the domestic game. 

Epitaphs were being pre- 
pared about the death of 
English football. The old argu- 
ment about the unbearable 
physical demands of an unrea- 
sonably busy schedule were 
being dusted down and there 
was even speculation about 
the future of Bobby Robson. 
His players, snarling with 
collective determination, 
sensed that be was under 
increasingly heavy pressure. 

Hoddie, though he desper- 
ately wanted to take over as 
the central creator in mid- 
field, decided not to ask for 
tbejoband burden the manag- 
er with his request He waited 
instead and was disappointed 
only to find that Waddle, his 
dub colleague at Tottenham 
Hotspur, bad become an inad- 
vertent victim of his own

Three-dimensional figure: Lineker salutes the treble that proved Eng la nd 's Mdiac 

dose bunch," Hoddie said. 
“Even though we played some 
special stuff in the first half 
and to win was wonderful, the 
wannest feeling for me was 
after foe end. When we were 
sitting there, shattered, in the 
dressing room, those who did 
not play were so dated and 
chu/red for us.” 

It was a genuine all-round 
team performance. Lineker, 
who matched Hum's achieve- 
ment of scoring three goals in 
a World Cup finals tie but has 
yet to receive foe match ball, 
stood out but only marginally 
above Beardsley. They left 
more than a few pounds of 
perspiration behind on the 
turf of foe Universitario 

The most encouraging area 
was the midfield. Balanced, 
flexible and varied, foe line of 
four gave England cohesion 
where previously the links had 
been broken. Hodge and Ste- 
ven, the youngsters who pro- 
vided the width on either 

flank, were bright and fresh. 
So was the ageing Reid, until 
his stamina understandably 
began to fade. 

Reid, though as effusive in 
his delight as anyone during 
the celebrations m the team 
hotel, stressed that “we 
shouldn't go overboard". Yet, 
for foe first time, England 
resembled the team that had 

illuminated the bufid-up with 
occasional moments of bril- 
liance and had risen to be 
regarded as the leading con- 
tenders from Europe. 

Robson could not have 
planned the transformation to 
greater effect or with more 
suitable riming Ushered by

sistently so unkind, England 
have stumbled across poten- 
tially foe easiest path to the

Wales fight back for victory 

Tonga .. — 


Wales. . 


Nukualofa (Reuter) — Wales 
kicked their way to victory over 

Tonga yesterday in a match 
marked by a brawl soon after foe 
start. Goal-kicking made the 
difference in foe first inter- 
national played by Wales in the 
Tongan capital v with the two 
sides scoring one try each in a 
match dominated by Toward 
play on a greasy pitch. 

The all-in punch -up in the 
Tongan dead-boll area came 17 
minutes after and left the Welsh 
No. 8, Phil Davies, and their 
inskfeoentre, Adrian Hadley, 

Tonga opened up an eariv 
lead five minutes into foe match 
after the Australian referee, 
Brian Kinsey, had penalised foe 
Welsh for collapsing a scrum, to 
allow Tongan stand-off hal£ 
Toraari Leva to goal from just 
inride the 22-metre line. 

Bleddyn Bowen, the Welsh 
centre, made it 3-3 with a 

box awarded by foe referee. 
Dacey converted to leave the 

penalty after 20 minutes and 
followed it up with another 

shortly before the interval to 
give foe touring team a 6-3 lead 
at half-time. 

Bowen was replaced as kicker 
after missing an easy attempt 
from in front of the posts early 
in the second half, but foetrfoll 
bade, Malcolm Dacey, found 
the target 12 minutes into foe 
half to help consolidate the 
Welsh lead. 

Wales' try came midway 
through foe half when Paid 
Moriarty, foe flanker, forced his 
way over after a tineout an foe 
Tongan line. The try was dis- 
puted by a Tongan touch judge 

Dacey converted to leave the 
score at IS-3 until injury time

Ashton resigns as England coach 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 

Brian Ashton, foe assistant 
England coach and one of the 
three national selectors, has had 
to resign both posts because of 
the demands rugby has been 
making, and is likely to make, 
upon his professional fife. His 

- replacement will be discussed by 

the Rugby Football Union at a 
meeting next week. 

Ashton, a former Fylde and 
Lancashire scrum half and a 
member of England's touring 
party to Australia in 1975, 
.joined forces with Martin 
Green, the national coach, on 
tour in New Zealand last year. 
Both men were appointed to 
coach England during the hut 
domestic season which, -in the 
light of Eagland^ performances 
hi the back division, turned out 
to be a bitter disappointment for 

His responsibility was to 
coach the backs, and changes in 
personnel did not assist his task. 
His work as a teacher . at 
Stony hum College did not give 
him time to accompany En- 
gland on their B tour to Italy last 
month, and, having seen foe 
likely schedule England players 
and their mentors face in 
preparing for next year’s world 
tournament, the school felt it 
would be difficult to release him 
to fulfil those commitments. 

“I feel very disappointed, 
very sad and frustrated, though I 

can see foe schoors position." 
Ashton, a history teacher and in 
charge of Stonyhurst rugby, 
said. “But I would not have 
been available to watch players 
on Saturday afternoons before 
and daring foe divisional 
championship next season and 
it would be unfair to the players 
iff didn’t see them perform. 

“The players are foe most 
important people in foe game 
and if they are not happy with 
what is going on above them, it’s 
unfair to expect them to play 
with full confidence." 

The obvious replacement' for 
Ashton, who coached England 
Colts before turning to foe 
country’s senior side, is Des 
Ssabrook, currently coach to foe 
B and under-23 teams. He was 
deeply involved with England's 
squad training h«t season but 
the main drawback to his 
appointment is thyr England 
would then have two former 
back-row forwards as coaches, 
whereas the intention was to 
have a forward and a hw- k_ 

This is not necessarily a bar to 
Sea brook’s progress smee any 
coach worth bis salt must take 
account of the whale side, but 

Division) and Alan Old, foe 
former Northern technical 
administrator, must come under 

Of them all — including Green 
and Seabrook — only Old played 
international rugby and, Peter 
Pan-like, remains as active 

sportsman in Morpeth, where 

he teaches, playing cricket and 
rugby. It is only three years since 
Old, now aged 40. appeared in a 
county championship final, his 
experience doing so much for 
the development of young York- 
shire backs like Underwood, 
Harrison and Bariey. 

Allan Wells has threatened 
more comebacks than Frank 
Sinatra, and foe Scot's latest is 
due in his national champion- 
ships, sponsored by ScotRail at 
Meadowbank this weekend. 
But, like a crooner’s voice, the 
sprinter's delicate muscles do 
not always respond to his and 
his supporters’ best wishes. 

Wells has barely raced since 
iniunr contributed to - his 
elimination in the Olympic 
semi-final two years ago while 
defending his 100-metres title. 
Further injuries this season 
have prevented racing. But with 
Scottish team selection due next 
week for the Commonwealth 
Games on this ■ same 
Meadowbank trade next month. 
Wells has to ran, probably in foe 
100 metres tomorrow, if be is 
going to defend the title he won 
m 1978 and 1982. 

The onus wfll be all the more 
unbearable emotionally, for the 
last time that the Common- 
wealth Games were held in 
Edinburgh in 1970, the 18- year- 
old Wells was a minor official in 
charge of raking foe lon&jump 

Following his Olympic title in 
1980, Wells left his Edinburgh 
home to live in Surrey. But 
mixed fortunes in the interven- 

-Olympic tide in an attempt to 
reproduce the same conditions 
and form of szx years ago. 

Wells has gone to ground in 
Fife, but Affleck said yesterday 
that his charge has opted for foe 
100 metres despite those 
continuing muscle injuries, “but 
it is difficult to say now be will 
run. I think be will do better in 
the weeks to come.” 

Wells lost his UK record last 
week when Linford Christie ran 
a superb 10X14 in Madrid. .And, 
unfortunately for Wells, foe.high 
standard of-Britisb sprinting is 
attributable to many of his 
compatriots. Elliott Bunney, last 
years European junior cham- 
pion, and Jamie Henderson, his 

training partner, who won the 
UK title two weeks ago. are 
competing, as are an in-form 
George McCall urn and Cam- 
eron Sharpe. So it is no easy 
track towards the title for Wells. 

The championships begin this 
evening with Tom McXeane, 
test season's 800-metres revete- 
tiou, probably running foe 400- 
metres heat, and saving the two 
laps running for next week’s 
AAA championship. The En- 
gland women go. to Bucharest 
for. a two-day match against 
Romania arid the Soviet Union. 
But Shirley Strong pursues her 
own comeback and the last 
place in the Commonwealth 
Gaines team with a 100 metres

foat they were in Group F only

It was a performance foat was 
reminiscent of fon historic 5-3

Collective joke that is no 

meat for Fenwick. The eager 
but irascible defender, who 

longer a laughing matter 


was booked for the second 
time and is thus suspended, 
feds that it should be the 
versatile Gary Stevens, of 
Tottenham Hotspur. He ex- 
pects' that it will instead be 
Martin, of West Ham United. 

Robson will then decide 
whether to return to his 
original plan and recall other 
Waddle or Barnes. It would 
seem as unwise to do so now 
as it was to select one of them 
in the first place but England’s 
manager has learned to play 
the game of diplomatic silence 
and is giving nothing away. 

“What is wrong with wing- 
ers, anyway?" he asked. “Para- 
guay have not one but two, 
you know " That perhaps is 
why they conceded two goals 
against Belgium on -Wednes- 
day. In clipping their own 
wings, England have fluttered 
away from their mountain 
retreat m Saltillo and are 
flying with renewed vigour 

Football's tderbaan com- 
mentators try and tty to get it 
right, bat they remain -a collec- 
tive joke: a joke so obrioas foat 
foe more fastidious scran to nse 
ft. To e xp loit such gems as “foe 
atmosphere to foe stadium has 
to be seen to be bettered" comes 
into foe same category as foe 

shooting of sitting ducks- 

Tbe sport of judting up foe 

verbal blundering of sports com- 
mentators is a noble one; with 
Juaatorena opening his legs to 
show his dass and Asa Hartford 
playing Ins heart out, it has a 
king and v en er ab le hfetery. But 
this is uet the polufcjris net the 
commentators but foe very exis- 
tence efeemmeataty that makes 
verbal howlers inevitable. U is fit 
the nature of five t e kv irfo u . 

No. it is not the football 
commentators' occasional errors 
foat are objectionable, it is their 
consistent tone. Football com- 
mentators simply do not have 
foe right touch. By Ear foe best of 
foe bunch is Brian Moore, bat 
ITV, playing what fa baseball 
terms ts a sacrifice bunt, have 
given Moore foe anchor-man 
role, one which he also {days 

pretty wefi. 

Football c — noorti — s are 
men dooned-to nritefe deeply all 
who fisten to them. Every gadrk 
of- diction and personality be- 
comes more and more , deeper 
infuriating the moire - it Brts 
under our sldn. Once mside our 
shells, commentators’ pearls 


^^ ^S to^gift^anuaMe 


Most other commentators im- 
pose on as tfaeir“peESonnIities": 
foeir hysterical prejudices, foeir 
overbearing nationalism, their 
deeply trivial knowledge (“and 
what a birthday present it would 
be ... )" and their l umb ering, 
witiera witticisms. The man who 
w elco med the celebration of 
Choi Soos-Ho's goal with foe 
words “This is not foe in- 
scrutable face of foe Orient” 
deserves to be taken bat aadshot 
for reckless use of foe efiebi. 

Football commentators have 
been coming off partiadarty 
badly hi the eyes of anyone who 
has been glutton cnoagh for 
paxrishmeat to watch the Test 
■win as well as the World Cop 
this week. So complex and so 
solemn-pared a game as cricket 
actually benrfos from the re- 
strained commentaries, inter- 
pretations and e i iph i n a ti nas of 
foe BBC team. . . 

Football is neither complex 
nor solemn, it is simple and it is 

emotional. Bat jut abontevray f

mg to win a bet when he told as 
that foe Scottish group was

Surely there was anot her re as o n 
for this sewn raefaht

I think there is something 
morse than sSSness fa aB this. I 
ft. fait that teterisian football 
coverage tends to cereal a deep 
contempt for the amfience. it h 
foe philosophy of “never mind,

“Here comes foe man they call

this Is foe group they are calling

FRIDAY JUNE 13 1986 

Scotland are 
facing an 
uphill battle 

If Graeme Souness were not 
Scotland's captain, his place 
might well be in jeopardy for 
the tense remaining match 
against Uruguay here at Neza 
today. In his third Work! Cup 
competition, bis 33 years were 
beginning to show against 
West Germany by the finish. 
The beat in Mexico is proving 
far more arduous than is the 

Alex Ferguson, aware that 
Souness's experience is not 
necessarily a compensation 
far bis dedining mobility, will 
probably have him in the line- 
up until, and assuming, Scot- 
land have settled against the 
Uruguayans, and then replace 
him with Paul McStay. No 
manager enjoys the prospect 
of neniing to drop a respected 
and valuable captain. 

Ferguson has been talking, 
pnsp crifically, of “freshening 
up" the midfield for a match 
. which Scotland have to win to 
remain in the competition. 
“We lost the first two, so I 
have to get it right this time," 
Ferguson has said in frank 
self-appraisal. Yet it is true to 
say that be has twice brought 
his team so near to success 
against the sternest opposition 
there is. 

. Uruguay, who were, and for 
the moment still are, my fancy 
to reach tbe final, are no less in 
need of victory. Their goal 
difference of minus five, hav- 
ing attacked when 2-1 down 
with 10 men against Denmark 
and having been plundered in 
the process, means they need 
both points in third place to be 
superior to Bulgaria, who have 
two points in Group A. 
Hungary's goal difference ef- 
fectively eliminates them. 

From David Miller, Mexico City 

1 Uruguay will be limited by i 
: the absence through suspen- i 
r sion of Bossio, their sweeper i 
j from Penarol and Barrios, 

1 their centre back who is j 
J injured. If Scotland can cany a 
: the game to them, they have a i 
1 chance, but they can expat ] 
* Uruguay to be uncompromis- ( 
5 ingly tough and obstructive. ] 

The discipline of the French 
referee, Quiniou, will be im- 
portant. My expectation is 
that Uruguay will get at least a 
draw and that Scotland, for 
the fourth time in a row, will 
go out of the competition at 
the end of tbe first round, 
having this time played with 

There is, unexpectedly and 
encouragingly, some slight 
hope that Nicholas win have 
recovered enough for Fejgu- 
son to gamble on his return. If 
not, the front two will proba- 
bly be Sturrock, who is fit 
again and has tbe ability to 
turn Uruguay's close marker, 
and Sharp. The odds on 
Nicholas being able to be 
wholly competitive are, in my 
opinion, slight He could be 
ready for the second round if 
only the Scots can make it 

There is thought to be some 
doubt about the inclusion of 
Aitken in midfield, but the 
choice is limited unless Fereu- 
son is to move Malpas for- 
ward from bade line. The 

probable midfield at the start 
is Strachan, Souness, Aitken 
and NicoL 

With McLeish recovered, 
hopefully, from his stomach 
ailment the back line should 
be at full strength, but they 
have to cope with two of the 
cleverest forwards in the final, 
Francescoli and Da Silva. It is 
these two upon whom Uru- 
guay will be relying for 

Ferguson has been impres- 
sive in the way he has mar- 
shalled his forces in 
attempting to match an ardu- 
ous assignment which has 
produced some of the best 
football we have seen. Few of 
the teams progressing to the 
second round would have 
survived in Group E, and all 
the forebodings beforehand 
have proved well-founded At 
this stage, however, it is no use 
the Scots looking back to their 
superb first half against the 
Danes, to the fact that they 
took the lead against West 
Germany and for some of the 
match gained control of the 
midfield. It was not enough 
and by narrow margins they 
lost both. 

As against Germany, Fergu- 
son will be hoping to get 
control of the match in the 
middle, and to get men for- 
ward quickly in support of the 
forwards to put pressure on a 
Uruguayan defence which has 
been shown to be suspect. 
Strachan and Nicol are capa- 
ble of doing thi*. In the final 
analysis, however, individual 
ability is likely to turn the 
result and on tbe ball there is 
no doubt that the Uruguayans 
are the more skilful. 

Denmark aim to pick up 
where they left off 

Denmark plan to resume 
where they left, off in their 
dazzling 6-t trouncing of Uru- 
guay when they face West 
Germany in their final world 
Cup Group E match today. 

Denmark need just one 
point to top the section, but 
tbe idea of playing for a draw 
is totally alien to the stylish 
Danes, who, according to 
coach Sepp Piontek, love tbe 
game so much they always 
want to go forward. 

“When they score one goal, 
all they want to do is score 
another. It's hard to persuade 
them that they must worry a 
little about defence sometimes 
too," admitted Piontek. 

Both sides are already cer- 
tain of reaching the second 
round, but the important mat- 
ter of prestige is at stake, and 
the game promises much. 

Traditionally one of the 
giants of European Football, 

West Germany's pride would 
be severely wounded if they 
lost to a tiny nation of just five 
million people on their north- 
ern bonier. 

Although Piontek is a West 
German, be will have no 
divided loyalties once die 
match starts. “I may have a 
German passport, but I have a 
Danish heart," he said. 

Victory for the Danes will 
be a remarkable achievement, 
giving them maximum points 
from by far the toughest group 
in the competition. It would 
also leave them with the 
unwelcome pressure of being 
World Cup favourites, and it 
remains to be seen whether 
they can keep up their scintil- 
lating play over the whole 
distance of the tournament. 

Denmark will be without 
injured defensive midfielder, 
Jens Joem Bertelsen, who is 
likely io be replaced by Liver- 

pool powerhouse Jan Moelby. 

Soeren Lerby, who faces 
Bayern Munich colleagues, 
Lothar Matthaeus and Klaus 
Augenthaler, is expected to 
take over Bertelsen’s role with 
Moelby pushing further

Captain Karl-Heinz

Normally, tbe likeliest way

who is in brilliant form.

“I’m very bitter.** 
Passarella. aged 33, said. "I 
had looked forward to this 
Worid Cup with aD my heart, 
but fate has dealt me a bad 
hand." His series of setbacks 
mimiTMtfftrl with a tom calf 
muscle in his left leg during 
tr aining for the match with 
Bulgaria on Tuesday. 

Argentina's most experi- 
enced World Cup player 
missed tbe 3-1 victory over 
South Korea and the 1-1 draw 
with Italy in the first round 
through a s tomach ailment. 

Tbe defender Mamed his 
latest iqjury on the loss 10 
pounds during a stomach 
illness. He said bad luck was 
dogging him as he alone 
among 40 members in the 
Argentine camp had been hit 
by the parasitic illness. "It is 
fated that this World Cup isn't 
for me," he said. 

Passarella expects the mus- 
cle to heal within the next 10 
days and that he might then 
play if Argentina reach the 
semi-finals. “Yon have to 
watch the Worid Cup without 
playing to know what I'm 
suffering,” he said. 

Altobelli goal 
was own goal 

Alessandro Ahobelfi, the Ital- 
ian forward, has been deprived 
of his third goal against South 
Korea. FIFA have ruled that his 
third effort was an own goal by a 
Korean defender after they stud- 
ied video apes of tbe game. 

Altobelli, who is joint leading 
scorer in the tournament on 
four, with Preben Elkjaer, of 
Denmark said; “I'm not going to 
make a fuss about it, but I'll 
keep on believing it was my 

Le6n (Renter) - It was over 
in a flash, but Jean Tigana's 
six-year wait for a goal for 
France was over. In France’s 
last World Cap Group C 
match, an exchange of passes 
with Dominique Rochefoan 
brought the lithe midfield 
player a free flick heme for the 
second goal in the 3-0 win over 
Hungary, which propelled the 
Emopean champions into the 
second round. 

Tigana, a model of tenacity 

waited since his debat against 
the pncckm* in Moscow on 
May 23, 1980. Tm relieved 
becanse everyone has been 
waiting for me to score," he 
said. Tigana’s career 
blossomed in tbe 1982 Worid

Platini in the second round 
a gainst Austria in Madrid. 

Since then, Tigana has be- 
come an indispensable mem- 
ber of arguably the world's 
finest midfield quartet along- 
side Platini, Giresse and 
Fernandez. France, have often 
been g r a teful for Tigana’s 
haid-nmniag, onselfish game, 
most graphically illustrated in 
the 1984 European Champioo- 
ship when he surged through 
the Pnrtagaese defence to lay 
on the extra-time winner for 
Platini in the Sam-final and 
his outstanding performance 
is the final victory over Spain. 

But Henri Michel, the 
French manager, has given 
Tigana a more defensive role 
in Mexico. “Against the Rus- 
sians I was a second stopper 
becanse they have two superb 
strikers" he said. “I'm doing 
individual marking, which al- 
lows others more freedom." 

France surprised world foot- 
ball by reaching the semi- 
finals of the 1982 World Cap, 
but they now carry a peater 
harden as highly ranked con- 
tenders. “Spain was a an 
adventure. Now we’re ebampi-

New York (Reuter) — Hec- 
tor “Macho" Camacho is 
strongly favoured to retain his 
Worid Boxing Council title at 
Madison Square Garden to- 
night The flamboyant confi- 
dent Camacho, who was born 
in Puerto Rico and lives in the 
United States, will defend his 
lightweight crown in a 12- 
round bout against Edwin 
“Chapo" Rosario, of Puerto 

“Macho Man," aged 24, has 
a 29-0 record with 16 knock- 
outs, and will be making his 
first appearance in New York 
since he knocked out the 
American, Louis Loy, in July, 
1982. Camacho is expecting 
similar results against 

“Rosario said he's going to 
knock me out” Camacho 
said. “He can't 1 got the best 
jab in the business. I've fot all 
the tools and I'm polished. 
Rosario is trying to be Cama- 
cho with Camacho.” 

Rosario, aged 23. who is 
ranked No. 1 by the WBC 
with a record of 23-1 with 19 
knockouts, lost his tide in San 
Juan, Puerto Rico, on May 1, 
1984, when he was knocked 
out in the fourth round by the

expected of ns," Tigana said. 

■Much of what is expected of 
France rests cm the shoulders 
of Platini, who sur prisingly 
has yet to score in the tourna- 
ment. Nevertheless Michel 
Hidalgo, the former French 
who came so dose to 
taking bis team to tbe 1982 
Worid Cup final, believes 
Platini's experience in Italy 
will be tbe key to next 
Tuesday's match against Italy,

cially if the French skipper 
and Tigana wish to celebrate 
then- 31st birthdays in Mexico 
around the quarter-finals 
stage and have not by then 
taken a plane home. 

“France’s chances are 50- 
50," Hidalgo said. “It's tbe

that will be tbe key to the 
matrli- Platini knows foe Ital- 
ian players and their style of 


Platini, regarded by many 
as tbe best pbtyer in the world, 
plays in the Italian league with 
Javentus. “Platini wifi be tbe 
psychological key. He hasn’t 
yet fbmid his best form. But 
playing against the Italians is 
the perfect spark for him," 
Hidalgo said. 

Asked bow the French side 
compared with his Worid Cnp 
team of four years ago, which 
lost a penalty shoot-out to 
West Germany in the semi- 
final, Hidalgo said: “It's the 
same side, except with two new 
young strikers, Papin and 
Stopyra. ft’s the same style, an 
a Har king style." Describing 
the secret of the French style, 
which has delighted football 
fans around the world, Hidal- 
go said: “Vivacity of spirit, 
vivacity of movement"

Whistle is 
blown on 

Mexico City (AF) - Worid 
Cup referees trying to cut out 
game-delaying fake injuries by 
winded, thirsty footballers are 
quickly summoning stretchers 
to haul tbe fallen players off 
the field. “Referees have been 
directed not to tolerate any 
gamesmanship,” Guido 
Tognoni, a spokesman for 
FIFA, the sport's international 
ruling body, said. 

He said there have been no 
formal instructions to referees 
to rush injured players off the 
field, but that there is a general 
directive to referees to punish 
simulations. “It is always a 
tough derision whether to let 
the doctor on the field," 
Togoni said. “The referee has 
to judge whether the player is 
injured or just tired and 
thirsty- Wedon't want players 
lying around for minutes and 
then see they are fine as soon 
as the stretcher comes.”' 

Referees in the first round 
have not hesitated to summon 
tire stretcher, and often de- 
mand that fallen players move 
off the field, gesturing emphat- 
ically toward the touch-line. 
Frequently, he stands np as 
soon as tbe stretcher arrives. 
“We want to see a player given 
care,” Tognoni said, “but not 
on the field.” 

He said the referee is given 
the authority to make deri- 
sions on how to react to 
injuries or to malingering. 
“We don't want coaches giv- 
ing tactical instructions," 
Tognoni said. He added that 
undo- FIFA rules, only the 
referee can permit the doctor 
and trainers to come onto the 
field. He stressed that match 
officials want to ensure that 
play stops immediately for 
any serious injury. 

However. Tognoni said a 
referee has to be very careful 
about interruptions. “Some- 
times it is a big advantage for 
one team, to stop play,” he 
said. The referee also has the 
authority to caution any play- 
er he believes is delaying 
through faking an injury. 
There have been several inci- 
dents at tbe World Cup where 
the referee has stood over a 
fallen player, warning him to 
resume play or face a formal 

Tognoni said that the prop- 
er way to halt the game if a 
player is down is for his team- 
mates to kick the tall off the 
field so the referee can assess 
the injury. 

Canadians bid 
to first finals 

Leon (Reuter) — Canada's 
squad left for home yesterday 
after, playing- -in - their first 
World Cup finals. The Cana- 
dians, who finished fast in 
Group C after defeats by 
France, Hungary and Russia, 
left their Atasolo base- for 
Leon airport, 100km away, 
and were then flying on to 
Mexico City. 

Hungary, who finished 
third in the group, arrived in 
Mexico City yesterday for a 
few days’ sightseeing. They are 
scheduled to fly home at the 
weekend. Their manager, 
Gyorgy Mezey, abandoned all 
hope of his side qualifying for 
the second round as one of the 
third-place finishers aftet they 
conceded six grads against the 

•Guadalajara (Reuter) — 
About 500 . Brazilian World 
Cup supporters have packed 
up and gone home either 
through homesickness or dis- 
appointment and hundreds 
more seem set 'to join them. 

“I have followed the Brazil- 
ian team since the 1 962 World 
Cup in Chile and I've never 
been so frustrated," Jose 
America, aged 72 and a re tired 
c^vil servant, said 

to the 


English football has some- 
thing to give to the world, and I 

am not in the first instance 
talking about their timely 
recovery to dispose of lethar- 
gic Poland. The victory was 
achieved wholly without tbe 
gamesmanship or deliberate 
dirty play of most of the 18 
teams I have so for seen in 
Mexico. Fenwick at times 
jeopardizes his reputation and, 
having had two bookings, will 
now nghtly nriss the second- 
round match against 

Even without the relief af- 
forded by tbe belated victory to 
those tortured sporting follow- 
ers at home, and the several 
thousand out here who are 
largely behaving with good 
humour, it is satisfying tint 
Englan d should be setting an 
example in standards which 
are under the threat of extinc- 
tion. The team may be a trifle 
short on magic, bat it is 
commendable that they should 
remain correct on manners. 
Technical shortcomings would 
be ho excase for a descent into 
tbe wilful meanness of many 
other rides by the country 
which stiB represents some 
dements of lair play. 

A huge global audience of 
well-wishers from Scandinavia 
to the Far East who regularly 
enjoy televised English foot- 
ball were hoping England 
would climb ort of the dot- 
drams. This belief is not 
vanity, hot is justified by the 

Improvement came 
about by accident 

views of the many internation- 
al journalists whom one en- 
counters daily in this 
maelstrom of media. 

Many other nations hate to 
see England struggle: for how- 
ever naive, however bereft at 
times of tactical intelligence, 
subtlety or individual sldli, 
English football for them 
means something vi go rous and 
fresh and appealing. I hasten 
to add that such a view is not 
largely held north of Gretna: A 
Scottish colleague ordered two 
bottles of Dom Perignan at 
£150 when- Morocco put it 
across us. 

So it is no self-admiration to 
say that England's upswing 
has enlivened the World Cnp, 
and not just for i. HHI and all 
those who have lashed out on 
satellite time. The revival has 
given a new dimension to a 
competition dominated, 
France and Denmark apart, by 
a safety-first mentality. 

What remains dist urbin g, 
when considering any further 
progress by England, is that 
the improvement happened 
almost by. accident; certainly 
Bobby Robson's change of 
direction ms largely imposed 
rather than voluntary. The 
consequence was that sudden- 
ly the team has shape, cohe- 
sion, rhythm and, sot least, 1 1 
fit men. 

The belated acknowledg- 
ment by tiie manager that 
there was no room for his 
injured captain — it is worry- 
ing that another shoulder dis- 
location in Los Angeles was 
seemingly withheld from pub- 
lic knowledge — together with 
tbe suspension of Wilkins, 
produced a middle Une of four 
which was more in tone 

Manager had 
been deceived 

with the demand of environ- 
ment and opposition. 

Whatever the process of 
selection, the effect was imme- 
diate. Eng land were now dou- 
bly improved from the 
previous two matches: com- 
pact, yet flexible, behind two 
mobile frodt-nmners. Hodge 
and Beardsley quickly estab- 
lished understanding on die 
left, the Evertou trio of Ste- 
vens, Bad and St even harmo- 
nized on the right- With 
Hodge, Reid and Steven all 
biting, covering and chasing 
the opposition, Hoddle now 
bad dw freedom to become an 
architect without a responsi- 
bility defensively to fill spaces 
and tackle. Against Portugal 
and Morocco, midfield oppo- 
nents were stream ing past 
hint; there was no room for 
him and Wilkins in a line of 
three. Now England were hack 
to the solidity ofl982. 

I sympathize with Bobby 
Robson in his belief, main- 
tained' over four years and 
bora out of his days at 
Ipswich, in the use of a winger. 
Haying* discovered, however, 

as Ramsey did, that he had no 
winger consistently reliable, 
be should have opted for the 
more prosaic but dependable 
44-2. Hateley Is nothing with- 
out a winger who w31 regularly 
■find ins head: tire principle 
had fallen fiat. The "wnatfr 
had been deceived, like others, 
by the team’s misleadingly 
successful record against mod- 
erate opposition. 

Now they have taken heart, 
but reservations .remain. The 
defence is suspect and the 
really smart foams jfe ahead.
