Sir Geoffrey Howe, the

a full-day Commons debate, 
gave a cautious response to 
the report last week of the 
Commonwealth Eminent 
Persons’ Group, disappoint- 
' rag many MPs by declining to 
gve details of any. additional 
measures the Government 
might be prepared to include 
in an internationally-agreed 
package. 

But Sir Geoffrey, and earlier 
the Prime Minister, again 
underlined their opposition to 
policies which would have the 
effect of ruining the South 
African economy and would 
risk economic upheaval for 
South Africa’s neighbours. 

The Government’s aim was 
to bring apartheid to an end 
■ and see established in its place 
i . a non-raciai society with dem- 
ocratic government, which 
could be the only secure 
foundation of a prosperous 
South Africa, he said. 

To be effective, any steps 
must be directed not at the 
destruction of the South Afri- 
can economy but at influenc- 
ing opinion there firmly in the 
direction of reform, he said. 
They must be introduced with 
the fullest international sup- 
port and must give the South 
African government the in- 
centive to respond positively 
rather than the excuse to 
retreat further into isolation.

expose tensions fnr * wnt 
in Unionist ranks 

By Richard Ford 

The sixth meeting of the' unveil its draft proposals for a 


joint Anglo-Irish icier-govern- 
mental conference took place 
yesterday, demonstrating both 
governments' determination 
that iheBgreeraeni remain and 
the impotence, of Unionist 
protests. - 

Despite loud calls from the 
Rev ton Paisley for “massive

tire response was sporadic 
with fewer than 1.000 people 
attending a meeting outside

And as Mr Peter Barry, the 
republic's Minister for For- 
eign Affairs, arrived back in 
Dublin last night after tire 
Stormont Castle meeting, the. 
tension and division within 
Unionist ranks was again on 
public display over the value 
of street protests. - 

A huge cordon of police 
were on duty at the castle for 
the meeting, which Mr Tom 
King, tire Secretary of State for 
Northern Ireland, heralded as 
a “significant landmark in the 
development of co-operation” 
between tire RUC and Garda. 

He added the work that has 
so far been done between both 
police forces “offered toe best

Madrid 
urged to 
reassure 
tourists 

From Richard Wigg 

Madrid 

The need for British, holi- 
daymakers in Spain to have 
“timely and accurate” infor- 
mation about Eta bomb at- 
tacks and other safety risks 
was emphasized by Mr Timo- 
thy Eggar, Under-Secretary of 
State at .the Foreign Office, 
when he met reporters here 
yesterday . 

On a four-day visit here, he 
is looking into the safety of 
British tourists. He spent an 
hour disnlssirtg the issue with 
Seftor Jose Barrionuevo. toe 
Spanish Interior Minister. 
"More official information, 
suitably translated, should be 
made available. Mr Eggar 
suggested, so that British tour- 
ists “do not have to wail for 
the English papers to arrive 
two days late before they bear 
what's happening”. . . 

In the light of the criticisms 
about British press reporting, 
voiced by a British tour 
operator and some British 
residents on the Costa del So! 
during his visit. Mr Eggar's 
remarks represent a vindica- 
tion of the media's role. 

He repeated his view that 
the rash of bombs planted by 
Eta. the Basque terrorist orga- 
nization, should not cause 
anyone to change holiday 
plans and added: “I am com- 
ing to holiday here in Spain 
this year myself." 

Turning to. the problems of 
drugs. Mr Eggar announced 
that Spain and Britain would 
be increasing the exchange of 
specialist personnel in order to 
step up the fight against drug 
trafficking. 

In toe field of public safety, 
improved street lighting and 
interpreters at police stations 
in holiday resorts were among 
the practical measures taken 
by Spain wh-ch had impressed 
him. the minister said. 

Mr Eggar praised the Span- 
iards for having reduced the 
level of street crimes but those 
involving break-ins remained 
"a major problem”, he said. 

Refecting discreetly his evi- 
dent concern after visiting a 
Marbelia hotel where a bomb 
had caused serious damage. 
Mr Eggar said he had received 
an assurance from the Interior 
Minister that there was no 
policy" against evacuating 
guests from hotels which were 
the victims of bomb threats. 

Mr Eggar expressed the 
British Government's “deep 
regret at a terrorist outrage” 
on hearing of the lunchtime 
murder yesterday of two Span- 
ish Army officers and their 
driver in Madrid, presumably 
by Ela gunmen.

Delay on

The Government has post-

million privatization of Royal 
Ordnance, toe state-owned 
arms manufacturer, which was 
schednfed for next month. 

The decision not to proceed 
with toe planned pnbtic offer 
of shares comer in the wake of 
protests from rival arms con- 
tractor, Vickers, that Royal 
Ordance was set to win a £100 
million order for Challenger 
tanks which had not been pot 
out to co mp et i tive tender by 
the Ministry of Defence. ' 

Mr George Younger, toe

transforming Royal Ordance 
into a fully Hedged commercial 
entity it has not been possible 
. to take tobfor enough and to

There has been some criti- 
cism from both inside and ont-

The Ministry of Defence 
will consider methods of priva-

Alliance split 
threatens over 
approach to 
nuclear energy 

By Sheila Gunn, Political Staff 


The Liberals and Social 
Democrats could face another 
damaging split next month 
over the strength of their 
commitments to a non- 
nuclear energy policy. 

A campaign launched by the 
Liberals yesterday, calling for 
the phasing out of reliance on 
nuclear power, will force their 
SDP partners to pursue a 
similar policy if a clash is to be 
avoided. 

The SDP does not have a 
comprehensive nuclear energy 
policy. A group chaired by Mr 
Leslie Murphy, a party trustee 
and former chairman of the 
National Enterprise Board, is 
working on a policy docu- 
ment It is expected to be 
published next month and will 
go to the party's annual con- 
ference in Harrogate in 
September. 

A recent SDP environment 
policy document called for the 
problem of nuclear waste dis- 
posal to be solved before any 
large expansion in the nuclear 
industry. While not backing 
pressurized water reactors 
during the 1983 general elec- 
tion campaign, supporters 
were more enthusiastic about 
the potential of advanced gas- 
cooled reactors. 

Yesterday Mr Malcolm 
Bruce, the Liberals' energy 
spokesman, emphasized his 
party's traditional distrust of 
nuclear energy. The energy 
industry, he said, had become 
dominated by an obsessive 
and irrational commitment to 
nuclear power. 

While the other parties were 
divided on the issue, the 
Liberals had always main- 
tained a coherent and consis- 
tent policy, he said. The 
Chernobyl disaster and leaks 
at British power stations had 
given them better opportuni- 
ties to promote their policy. 

Mr David Steel the parly 
leader, said that nuclear power 
had been put forward as the 
easy and obvious answer to 
the energy problem. 

“Yet we now know that 
there are do easy answers, that 
generating power from the 
atom has inescapable prob- 
lems of its own. Far from 
offering us a short cut into a 


regime of dean, cheap energy 
production and the continua- 
tion of a high-energy society 
for generations to come, it 
may actually be the poisoned 
apple that will Anally destroy 
us. 

“So while we support fur- 
ther research in the nuclear 
industry, including the dispos- 
al of waste, we do not support 
new nuclear power production 
at Sizewell or anywhere else* 1 . 
The campaign will call for 

• Abandoning the PWR 
programme; 

• Phasing out the oldest 
Magnox reactors; 

• Better energy insulation: 

• More research into wind, 
water and other alternative 


energy sources; 

• More research into deaner 
ways of burning coal and oil to 
avoid creating add rain; 

• A full investigation into the 
health of those living near 
nuclear power stations: 

• Better monitoring of radio- 
active leaks. 

Mr Jim Wallace, the 
Liberals' chief whip, said that 
parliamentary tactics would 
be used to get debates on 
better safety measures and 
more information. 

• Mr Tony Berm. the former 
Labour Energy Secretary, yes- 
terday warned his colleagues 
against toning down their 
opposition to nudear energy. 
The phasing out of nuclear 
power must not become “re- 
ducing our dependence on 
nudear power", he said. 

The Labour Party is divided 
on the issue. Many share the 
Liberals' distrust of nudear 
energy, but this has been 
balanced by trade union and 
constituency concerns. There 
have been recent calls for the 
replacement of Dr John Cun- 
ningham as the party's envi- 
ronment spokesman as. with 
Sellafield in his constituency, 
he has not opposed nuclear 
energy. 

Mr Benn said; “It is dear 
that if we maintain a cam- 
paign inside and outside the 
party we shall succeed in 
getting a two-thirds majority 
at this year's conference for 
the phasing out of nudear 
power, building on the 1985 
decision". 


Blood crisis may 
delay surgery 

By Nicholas Timmins, Social Services Correspondent 


Waiting list operations may 
have to be cancelled in Lon- 
don and the south-east unless 
more donors give blood, the 
regional blood transfusion ser- 
vice which covers south Lon- 
don, Surrey, Sussex and Kent 
has warned. 

Blood collections have been 
down by 1.000 pintsa week, or 
20 per cent, for several weeks, 
with the service having to beg 
blood from other regions. 

“If blood collections do not 
improve very rapidly we shall 
be in a crisis and patients will 
be affected". Mr Keith Rogers, 
director of the regional blood 
transfusion service, said yest- 
erday. 

The donor shortage is the 
second the region has faced in 
little more than six months. 
Routine operations were post- 
poned throughout London 
and the south-east for a fort- 
night in December as the 
number of donors fell. 

Publicity about that crisis 
produced an increase in dona- 
tions which has now fallen off. 
“We are at a loss to know 
why", a spokesman for the 
service said yesterday. 


“It may be that people are 
apprehensive about Aids, but 
we would stress that there is 
no possibility of catching Aids 
by coming along to a donor 
session", the spokesman said. 

“We have also had to 
change the times of some 
donor sessions to mornings 
and afternoons rather than 
evenings because the demand 
for platelets for the treatment 
of leukaemia and cancer has 
risen" he added. 

The service urged donors to 
try and keep their appoint- 
ments and to bring a friend 
along too. It needs a sustained 
response, not just a brief rush 
to give blood. 

Other regions had been able 
to help the south-east over the 
past few weeks, but with 
holidays coming up their 
number of donors could fall. 

Other transfusion centres 
have also faced problems in 
the past couple of years as 
donations have failed to keep 
pace with the demand 

The south London transfu- 
sion service is planning a 
survey to And out why some 
donors are staying away.

Kinnock in 
call for 
education 
cash boost 

Mr Neil Kinnock, the La- 
bour leader, yesterday called 
for sabstantial new investment 
in education to improve oppor- 
tunities for Britain's young 
people. 

He told a seminar in London 
of parents' representatives, 
teachers' leaders and local 
education authorities, orga- 
nized by the Labour Party, 
that action most be taken to 
create freedom and fairness. 

“Without free education 
available to all at Che highest 
possible quality, freedom itself 
is confined. There is little 
fairness unless all children 
have that chance," Mr 
Kinnock said. 

Schools were under pressure 
because of the “arbitrary and 
disadvantageous effects" of a 
real reduction in resources and ; 
the need for modernization ; 
and reform of the curriculum. 

Mr Kinnock described edo- 1 
cation as “the absolute precon- 
dition for economic pr o gr e ss 
and social survival" and mged 
the seminar members to 
achieve a consensus on best 
practice in schools to bring 
future improvement 
The party would hold simi- 
lar meetings in other parts of 
Britain, be said, and he hoped ' 
that a similar fonira for moai- i 
toring and advising on the ; 
education service might be 
established under a Labour j 
government ! 

Mr Giles Radice, Labour's 
education spokesman, said 
that Labour was the only 
political party which “because 
of its contacts and resources" 
could convene a meeting of 
parent teacher and focal au- 
thority representatives at na- 
tional level. 

But the party leadership 
was sharply questioned by 
some of the 80 representatives 
on the detailed education 
plans of a Labour 
govenunentln the past Mr 
Radice has called for Mg new 
resources for nursery, school 
and higher education without 
reference to precise figures. 

Beverley Anderson, a lectur- 
er at Oxford Polytechnic and a 
former TV presenter, told Mr 
Kinnock: “Yon have to tell as 
how much money they will cost 
and how much will go on our 
taxes and rates. If yon do not 
we will not take yon 
seriously." 

In reply, Mr Kinnock de- 
clined to mention specific 
constings or priorities, but 
promised: “We will tell the 
troth and act in pursuit of 
honest and achieveable pur- 
poses and scale of 
investment." 

In return he wanted a “very 
serious contract" with all edu- 
cational interests to campaign 
for the return Vf a Labour 
government to secure the extra 
financing and other changes 
they all wanted. 

Mrs Frances Morrell La- 
bour leader of the Inner Lon- 
don Education Authority, said 
“lots more money" would be 
needed. 

“Money alone is not 
enough, but it is a prerequisite 
for everything rise. We should 
say that loud and dear." 

Architecture 
courses to end 

The architecture courses at 
North East London and Hud- 
dersfield polytechnics are to 
dose, with no new intakes 
being allowed this September, 
Mr Kenneth Baker, Secretary 
of State for Education ami 
Science, announced yesterday 
(Lucy Hodges writes). 

Students in the middle of 
courses win be able to com- 
plete them, and many of those 
accepted to begin this Septem- 
ber wifl be transferred to other 
institutions. 

The closures have come asa 
result of a review of architec- 
ture training and in the tight of 
figures which showed an over- 
supply of qualified architects. 





The Tigerfish torpedo explodes beneath the finuel of the hulk of HMS Lowestoft 



Ship sank 
‘after 
repairs by 
dockyard 9 

The company managing Gi- 
braltar dockyard fitted a pro- 
peller to a frigate bacfc-io- 
from. so that the warship's 
forward and reverse gears 
would have been changed, the 
Commons was told yesterday. 

The company also mended 
the pumps of a privately- 
owned vessel so that water 
was pumped into the ship, 
which then sank, it was also 
said. 

Labour's defence spokesman. 
Mr Kevin McNamara, had 
asked how much of the de- 
fence budget had been spent 
“on the Appledore company, 
which is supposed to be 
managing the dockyard in 
Gibraltar?” 

Mr George Younger. Secre- 
tary of State for Defence, 
replied that if Mr McNamara 
would table a specific question 
about how much had been 
spent in Gibraltar, he would 
answer.

Wapping 

protest 

arrests 

By a Staff Reporter 

Several hundred demon- 
strators blocked the entrance 
to News international's 
Wapping plant yesterday in an 
unexpected demonstration 
which almost seated off the 
site until police reinforce- 
ments with horses arrived to 
push the crowd back. 

The demonstration, which 
resulted in eight arrests and 
one injured policeman being 
taken to hospital came three 
days before a hearing in the 
High Court when News Inter- 
national will ask for court 
orders to restrict ptekeiing at 
its London and Glasgow 
plants. 

The company has issued 
writs against the NGA, Sogat 
'82, three London brandies of 
Sogat and Sogat officials. 

In the demonstration yes- 
terday. similar to one last 
Saturday morning, demon- 
strators gathered on The High- 
way . the main road that runs 
past the Wapping plant, and 
then flooded across into Vir- 
ginia Way at the entrance . 

Mounted police were called 
and for a time people could 
leave or enter the plant only 
on foot along a path cleared by 
police on horses. Lorries and a 
coach taking workers into the 
plant had to park and wait 
before they could enter. 

After more than an hour the 
crowd was pushed back and 
access for vehicles restored.

Scargill will

Mr Arthur ScargfH the 
miners' leader, is to join a 
mass gathering of pitmen in 
his native Yorkshire, but he 
wili be silent. 

The Yorkshire National 
Union of Mineworkers have 
invited their national presi-

but not to speak. 

He will be a guest at the 
event in Doncaster when the

In die past national. presir

on to address the gathering of 
thousands of miners and their 
families. 

This -year, however, the 
Yorkshire NUM council has 
ignored Mr Scargill who was 
their president before being 
elected to national Office. 

Mr Jack Taylor, the York-

Support for minister’s call on ‘slum 9 homes 


By Tim Jones Mr David Winnick, Labour 

_ , . MP for Walsall North, who 

Mr Geoffrey Pattie jester- made the call said that conncil 
day received support from hooses had been baUt to 


council tenants in his own 
constituency for his criticism 
of council estates as “the 
world's most expensive 
slums". 

The remarks of the Infor- 
mation Technolog}' Minister, 
who is a leading contender for 
promotion to tire Cabinet, bad 
outraged Labour MPs and led 
to a call for his immediate 
dismissal.

Mrs Trudy Underwood, 


aged 23, who lives in a three- 
bed roomed maisonette at Mid- 
dlesex Court, Addlesurae, 
Surrey, said: “He is quite 
right They, are slums." 

She added, however: “We 
must have council houses for 
people like us who cannot 
afford their own homes. Some 
estates are only slums because 
of the way they were thrown op 
and because of some of die 
people w bo live in them." 

Mrs Christine Roake, who 
pays just over £25 a week for 
her maisonette, said: “They

By many standards, the 
estate is for superior to some 
found in deprived large inner-

differed. Mrs Linda Bryan,

said: “I have been very happy

ing to an Office of Population 
Censuses and Surveys report. 

Seven thousand 7 British

mid-1984 and 1985j com- 
pared with two thousand the 
previous year.

The survey has a wider 
coverage than the immigra- 
tion statistics published by the 
Home Office. It encompasses 
the migration of British citi- 
zens who are not subject to 
restrictions on their move- 
ment inland out of the country 
and also includes the- inten- 
tions of those arriving foreign 
and Commonwealth immi- 
grants who have not received 
government permission to 
take up residence here. 

It shows that the influx of 
British citizens rose by 30,000 
to 120,000. The number of 
Britons leaving also rose, but 
only, by 9,000 to 114,000,' 
resulting in the first-ever re- 
corded gain of British citizens 
by immigration. This com- 
pared with a 15,000 net loss 
last year. 

The arrival of foreign citi- 
zens declaring their intention 
permanently to live here rose 
by .12,000 u> 121,000, a level

Princess’s brother 


in 


By Michael McCarthy 


Lord AJ thorp, brother of the 
Princess of Wales, made a 
personal plea to young people 
yesterday to keep away from 
drugs. 

He sai±"Just don’t: get in- 
volved. From my personal 
experience of seeing what it 
can do -just don’t .take 
them.” 

He was speaking on the TV- 
am programme Good Mom - 
ingBrimn in the aftermath of 
the death last week of Olivia 
Chan non. his acquaintance 
and fellow student al Oxford, 
who was the daughter of Mr 
Paul Chanson, Secretary of 
State for Trade and Industry. 

Lord Alihorp. aged 22, who 
is heir to Lord Spencer, em- 
phasized that he had never 
lakeo or been offered drugs in 
his three years of reading 
history at Magdalen College. 
He denied reports of wide- 
spread drug abuse among the 
university’s undergraduates. 

He was also at pains tb try to 
counter the image of Oxford, 
widely publicized since Miss 
Channotfs death, as the home 
ofa “fast set” for whom drug- 
taking was only one of a 
number of wild excesses. . . 

He addressed himself to 
young people watching the 
programme and said: “Just, 
don’t get involved from the 
start. That’s the easfest thing;-. 
It is a temptation, and it may 
seem very easy for me sitting, 
here. ' ' •

Lawyer jailed 
for £lm bank 
swindle plot 

A solicitor who master- 
. minded a plot to swindle 
banks out of £1 million was 
jailed for two years at the 
Central Criminal Court yest- 
erday. 

Anthony Willson.. aged 40, 
used his inside knowledge of 
how banks dealt with sol- 
icitors’ clients'- accounts to 
plan the swindle. 

Willson found ont the 
names of solicitors, arid the 
names of banks where they 
had their clients’ accounts: 

Someone would pretend to 
be a solicitor and would 
telephorre the banks, authoriz- 
ing the transfer of money. . 

Willson, of Layer-de-la- 
Haye, Essex, and Robert Con- 
don, aged 44, a~sel£empfoyed 
builder, of Chingford, north- 
east London, who was jailed 
for two and a half years, were 
said to be principally responsi- 
ble for operating the plot 
Both men admitted conspirr 
ing-io steal money from banks. 


may seem very easy for you to 
go out there and get away from 
your problems by taking 
drugs, but it really isn’t an 
■answer.”' - 

- Questioned by the present- 
ers. Anne Diamond and Nick 
Owen, about Oxford’s “drug- 
taking set” Lord Alihorp said: 
“The drug-taking people, it’s 
such a small community in- 
side Oxford. and 99 per cent ; 
of Oxford can't afford drugs , 
anyway.” . 

He added: “It’s such an ! 
unreal picture that's been 
painted over the Iasi few days 
of Oxford, and the people that 
take drugs were about three or 
four people, mostly not con-’ 
nected directly with the uni- 
versity, but affiliated colleges 
in Oxford and Londoners who 
came down to try and capital- 
ize ori the limited high life.” 

Ho was asked what he 
thought of the “Hooray. Henry 
typeset.” '• ■ 

. He feplied:“A Hooray Hen- 
ry seems to be anyone who 
goes to public school in the 
eyes of the media, but Hooray 
Henrys, as I see h, is an 
attitude as opposed to a 
background, and it’s people 
smashing up places, and pbi- 
.listines, and I’ve kept well 
dear of it.””

There were 48.000 arrivals 
from the New Common- 
wealth .(compared with 54.000

Old Commonwealth while the 
outflow to those countries was

The combined influx, at i 
241,000. was greater than for ' 
any year since 1967/8. j 
The result was a net gain of I 
population of 64.000, double | 
that of last year which itself 
was the first time that there 
had not been a net loss. 

The survey also shows 
changes in the destinations of 
the immigrants to the differ- 
ent pans of Britain. On bal- 
ance there has been a drop of 
immigrants to Scottish regions 
while the East Midlands has 
experienced a great upsurge by 
comparison with test year. 

MPs move 
on child 
benefit 

. By Nicholas Timmins 
Social Services . 

. Correspondent 

A fresh attempt by Conser- 
vative backbenchers to index- 
link the child benefit to 
preserve its real value is to be 
made today. 

The move comes after last 
year's derision to raise child 
benefit by only ISp to £7, 
instead of the 35p needed to 
keep pace with inflation, and 
fears that the Government 
intends to reduce the value of 
the benefit to help to pay for 
the new Family Credit. 

Sir Brandon Rhys-WTI- 
Jiams. .Conservative MP for 
Kensington, is planning to 
table a 10-minute rule Bill 
today after a similar amend- 
ment to the Government’s 
Social Security Bill, which had 
foe. hacking of 40 Conserva- 
tive backbenchers, was talked 
out during the Bin’s report 
stage. •; 

Sir Brandon said; “People 
forget ' that child benefit re- 
placed the old child tax allows 
ances. If foe benefit had been 
uprated in line with prices in 
the same way as tax allow- 
ances, it would be worth £8 a 
week now instead of£7. 

“The effect has been .to 
transfer £600 million away 
from families with children 
towards the general taxpayer, 
but only atom one in four 
taxpayers receive child bene- 
fit- -The result has been a 
reduction in foe real value of 
family support.” 


Ian Brady on ‘strike’

lan -Brady, foe. moors mur-

- his old prison job of transcrib- 
ing, books into braille for foe

ova: working conditions. Lord 
Longford, the prison reform 
campaigner, said yesterday. 

Brady, who was sent to 
prison for fife more tiffin JO 
years ago', wants, to continue 
his work inside his own cefl. 

Lord Longford said that the 
authorities -at- Park Lane Se- 
cure -- Hospital Liverpool, 

- where Brady is being held, 
have refused his request. 

“His main complaint is that 
since he has been at foe 
hospital be has not been 
allowed to do the braille work 
in his room.” Lord Longford 
said. 

He said he. visited Brady, 
aged 47, about-two weeks ago 
and found him “very 
depressed”: 

Brady has been transcribing

Tour operators freeze 
winter holiday prices 


By Derek Hams 


Prices of most of foe million 
winter package holidays on 
offer from Britain’s biggest 
tour operator will be held at 
last year's prices. But about 
100,000 holidays offered by 
Thomson Holidays wiR be 
cheaper than last winter. 

Long-stay holidaymakers, 
typically the retired, will be 
able to pay as little as £1.99 a 
day in self-catering accom- 
modation.' 

Thomson is expanding its 
programme for the over-55s 
and claims to be “significantly 
undercutting” prices of key 
competitors in this market 
which is estimated to have 
grown to more than 150,000 
holidays. 

It will be cheaper to take a 
winter package than to stay at 
home, foe company says. 


More people are expected to 
take long-stay breaks abroad, 
but Thomson is also forecast- 
ing growth in both ski and 
sunshine holidays. 

Overall, Thomson predicts 
that foe winter market is likely 
to grow by 15 per cent from 
last winter to about Z25 
million. 

New extras are being offered 
in holidays for foe over-55s, 
including tuition, mostly free, 
in golf, bowls, dancing, paint- 
ing and photography during 
12 different theme weeks 
which are being organized. 

Horizon, which launched its 
winter brochures a fortnight 
ago. says it has already sold a 
fifth of its 200,000 winter sun 
holidays. Horizon has also 
largely held its prices down to 
the levels of last winter. 


Hurd deplores 
British failure 
to deter theft 

Only one home in 10 is 
protected against burglars by 
strong locks, Mr Douglas 
Hurd, foe Home Secretary, 
said last night 
Some people even had 
doors and windows unlocked 
and one in five motorists 
regularly left his or her car 
unlocked, he told foe British 
Security Industry Association 
in London. 

“There is no need for foe 
citizen to spend a lot of money 
turning his home into a bris- 
tling fortress, but foe cost of a 
reasonable degree of security 
is well worth while, both in 
making the burglar’s job much 
more difficult and in reducing 
the householder's fear of 
crime", he added. 

A quarter of burglaries in 
' Britain did not involve forced 
entry, because doors and win- 
dows were left unlocked. 


Five in court 
on vicarage 
charges 

Four men and a woman 
appeared before Acton magis- 
trates yesterday charged in 
connection with an alleged 
rape and aggravated burglary 
at an Ealing vicarage. 

Three of foe men are 
charged with rape, aggravated 
burglary during which proper- 
ty worth £2.000 was stolen, 
and assault causing grevious 
bodily harm on the vicar and 
his daughter's boy friend. 

Sexton Bignail, aged 44, of 
Albrighton Road. East Dul- 
wich. and Jacqueline Defelice. 
aged 36. of Limes Walk. 
Ealing, are charged with han- 
dling stolen goods, allegedly 
taken from foe vicarage. 

Defelice is also charged with 
intending to pervert the 
course of justice by harbour- 
ing knives. 

The hearing was adjourned 


Landlord 
‘has no 
sympathy 
for IRA’ 

A Glasgow landlord accused 
of aiding a cell of Irish 
terrorists plotting a bomb 
campaign in Britain told the 
Central Criminal Court yes- 
terday he had no sympathy for 
the IRA. 

John Boyle, aged 26. said he 
had no interest in Irish poh~ 

I tics. ‘T would like to have 

j nothing whatsoever to do with 
^ politics.” he told the jury. 

Mr Boyle, an electrician, 
has been accused by Mr Roy 
Am lot. for the prosecution, of 
remaining silent about an 
arms and bomb-making cache 
I in a cellar at James Gray 
Street. Glasgow, where he had 
rented a room to Patrick 
Magee, aged 35, Gerard Mc- 
Donnell. aged 35. Martina 
Anderson, aged 23, and Ella 
O’ Dwyer, aged 26. 

Mr Boyle said he had lived 
at 17 James Gray Street since 
he was nine. He and bis 
mother went to Donegal to 
live for 18 months but re- 
lumed in 1 983. And Mr Boyle 
said he had no links with the 
Irish community while living 
in Donegal- 

Mr Geoffrey Robertson, his 
counsel, told the jury: “This 
story is about a young man of 
good character without foe 
slightest motive to help the 
IRA or the slightest interest in 
their political acts who had 
become innocently caught up 
on the fringes of their 
activity” 

Mr Boyle is accused of 
procuring, counselling, aiding, 
abetting or being an accessory 
to the commission of a crime 
by assisting with foe provision 
of premises and the storage of 
materials for causing explo- 
sions. 

Mr Boyle is also alleged to 
have possessed or controlled 
explosive substances and to 
have been an accessory to foe 
commission of a crime by 
Magee. McDonnell. Anderson 
and O’Dwyer by secreting 
materials for causing explo- 
sions in foe cellar of his home. 

The case continues.

Sanctions debate 


PM questioned 


Lost plutonium 


Apartheid 
could be 
ended by 
discussion 


SANCTIONS 


. Mrs Thatcher, the Prime Min- 
ister. made plain her dislike of 
' economic sanctions against 
South Africa when she clashed 
with Mr Neil Kin nock. Leader 
of the Opposition, over their 
effectiveness during question 
time in the Commons. 

She said the important thing 
was to try and end apartheid by 
negotiation. However. Mr 
Kinnock said negotiations could 
only come through pressure and 
sanctions were vital to that 
pressure. 

Mr James Craigcn (Glasgow 
Man hill. Lab), who opened the 
exchanges, asked in what sense 
could Mrs Thatcher claim her 
administration was giving moral 
leadership on the issue of South 
Africa. 

Mrs Thatcher We tried at the 
Commonwealth conference to 
.see if we could get the solution to 
the South African problem by 
negotiation and helped to set up 
.the Eminent Persons' Group. 

That EPG was widely wel- 
comed. It was due to our 
leadership. If it had not been for 
the bombing of the three capitals 
that group would have continued 
and could have come to a 
conclusion. 

Mr Kinnock; When Bishop 
Tntn and his colleagues as well 
as the African National Con- 
gress and the United Demo- 
cratic Front together with other 
organisations representative of 
. majority black opinion in South 
Africa, say repeatedly that eco- 
nomic sanctions are the most 
effective non-violent way to pur- 
sue the end of apartheid, what 
right has she got to disagree 
with them? 

Mrs Thatcher: With due respect 
to him. we each have a right and 
duty to formulate our own 
opinion. 

Mr Kinnock; fn that case, we 
can tell she is not black and in 
Sooth Africa where they do not 
have the right to formulate their 
own opinions. That is what is 
wrong with the system. 

Since she offered her opinion, 
as she is perfectly entitled to do. 
last Friday about what was best 
for the black people of South 
Africa, what was her authority 
for stating that? 

Mrs Thatcher I have given, and 
will continue to give, our own 
view on the lack of effectiveness 
of economic sanctions. I will 
' continue to give our own view 
that the important thing is to try 
and end apartheid by negotia- 
tion and to try to get the 
cessation of violence on all sides. 
That will continue to be our 
. objective. 

Mr Kinnock: Mr Botha's regime 
will continue to mock it. If she 
really wants negotiations they 
can only come through pressure 
and economic sanctions are vital 
to pressure. 

Mrs Thatcher Perhaps he will 
remember what previous mem- 
bers of his own party have said 
about sanctions? Perhaps he will 
remember what Mrs Helen 
Suzman has said about ' sanc- 
tions. that they dearly would not 
be effective, they would be 
counterproductive. 

Mr Kinnock wants sanctions 
which will increase unemploy- 
ment in South Africa and which 
will increase unemployment 
here. How does he think that 
will bring about peaceful 
change? 


Mr William Hamilton (Central 
Fife. Lab): With regard to her 
meeting with the Queen tonight, 
and in view of her Majesty's 
known anxiety about the need to 
preserve the unity of the 
Commonwealth, will the Prime 
Minister, despite what she said 
last week, give her Majesty an 
assurance that she places Che 
onity of the Commonwealth 
above the unity of her own party. 
Mrs Thatcher If Mr Hamilton 
had listened he would have 
heard that I do not have an 
audience of her Majesty this 
evening. There are certain 
things I discuss with her and not 
w itta anybody else. 

Mr Norman Si John-Stevas 
(Chelmsford. CJe WBl she con- 
vey to her Majesty Mr 
Hamilton's concern about her 
welfare. (Laughter) 

Mrs Thatcher I have nothing to 
add to what I have already said. 
Mr David Steel. Leader of the 
Liberal Party: In advance of the 
debate will she explain the 
distinction in her mind between 
sanctions, effective economic 
measures and effective 
measures. 

Most of ns find it humiliating 
that Britain has to be dragged 
along to inevitable action to 
bring pressure to bear on South 
Africa ' for positive change. 
Should we not give leadership? 
Mrs Thatcher. We took the lead 
in setting up the Eminent Per- 
sons Group which would have 
been successful but for the 
circumstances 1 have mentioned. 
The aim is to secure effective 
measures to end the system of 
apartheid and enable black 
South Africans to play a proper 
part in the development of South 
Africa. 



Mr Michael Hirst (Strathkelvin 
and Bearsden. Ck Bishop 
Moekeno. leader of the Indepen- 
dent Reform Church in Sooth 
Africa, with four and a half 
million black Christian adher- 
ents, is here and has brought a 
dear message to the British 
people that, while apartheid is 
totally unacceptable, economic 
sanctions and disinvestment 
would be profoundly damaging 
and unhelpful to die Ssetls 
African people. 

Mrs Thatcher: That underlines 
our view that any measures 
should be aimed to bring about 
tbe end of apartheid. 

Mr Roger King (Birmingham, 
North field, C): Has she read 
reports that the Church 
Commissioners are not able and 
willing to withdraw investment 
from Sooth Africa because it 
might affect (he livelihood of 
clergy in this country* Thou- 
sands of work people and many 
companies in Oils country will be 
similarly affected if diem are

Healey warns Thatcher 
on widening gulf 
in the Commonwealth 


SOUTH AFRICA 


If measures taken by Britain 
against South Africa were to be 
effective, they must give the 
South African Government an 
incentive to respond positively 
rather than an excuse to retreat 
still further into isolation. Sir 
Geoffrey Howe. Secretary of 
State for Foreign and Common- 
wealth Affairs, said during the 
Commons debate on an Oppo- 
sition motion on South Africa. 

Opening the debate. Mr De- 
nis Healey, chief Opposition 
spokesman on foreign and 
Commonwealth affairs, said 
that if the Prime Minister 
vetoed action against South 
Africa again it could inflict 
massive shame on the Govern- 
ment from which the British 
people could not escape. 

Last year, he said, she had 
deliberately created a gulf in the 
Commonwealth. If she widened 
that gulf this year the Common- 
wealth might not survive. 

Mr Healey moved an Oppo- 
sition motion calling on the 
Government, in view of the 
worsening situation in South 
Africa and the report of the 
Commonwealth Eminent Per- 
sons Group, to work actively 
with the European Community. 
Commonwealth and United 
Nations for the imposition of 
effective economic measures 
against the Government of 
South Africa. 

He said that last year at 
Nassau the Prime Minister cre- 
ated a gulf between Britain and 
all other members of the 
Commonwealth both old and 
new. If she deliberately widened 
that gulf this year the Common- 
wealth itself might not survive. 

inside South Africa the situa- 
tion had dramatically deteri- 
orated in the past lew days. 

We have in South Africa 
today (he went on) a police state 
in which the government's 
agents have a licence to arrest 
without explanation and kill 
without being called to account 
South Africa today suffers from 
a news blackout far more com- 
plete than any communist coun- 


try has ever known. 
(Conservative interruptions) 

Armed men could break up 
church services and no word 
could be published of what bad 
happened. The apartheid regime 
had blotted out the truth in the 
blackest Arctic nighL The Emi- 
nent Persons Group bad de- 
scribed tire system in South 
Africa as "awesome in its 
cruelly". 

The report described a system 
where the shooting or torturing, 
of political opponents was ac- 
cepted practice and where the 
state systematically used exces- 
sive violence against peaceful 
demonstrators, including 
mutilating the faces of school- 
children with sjamboks. 

Yet all the Prime Minister 
■ could find to say about that 
system on television last week 
after reading the report was: “It 
must have been so irritating, so

"how they fed.” 

Poes she (he continued) really

understand? Can she not see 
that on South Africa as on so 
many issues closer io home her 
total incapacity to understand 
how the victims of society feel 
about their predicament makes 
her unfit for office? 


The Eminent Persons Group 
had been as shocked and as- 
tounded by the reality of apart- 
heid as they were impressed by 
the quality and moderation of 
those who opposed it. 

The Group had found the 
leaders of the ANC and the 
United Democratic Front 
wanted to achieve a multi-racial 
society by peaceful negotiation. 
They were prepared to suspend 
violence in order to achieve 
that. 

But the British Government, 
until very recently, had refused 
all contact with ANC members. 
Even now. it refused to allow its 
Ministers to talk with them. 

Instead, the British Govern- 
ment. like the United States 
administration, had chosen 
constructive engagement with 
apartheid. The Pretoria regime 
had rewarded them by sys- 
tematic deception. 

The EPG bad said that the 


South African Government had 
effected a specialized vocabu- 
lary whereby saying one thing, 
they meant another. 

The Prime Minister (Mr 
Healey said) and President Rea- 
gan fell for it hook, line and 
smker. President Botha has 
played the Prime Minister and 
President Reagan for suckers. 
(Conservative cry oft 
"Rubbish." and Labour cheers). 
. Mr Botha bad admitted as 
much last week, when address- 
ing his own pari lament. So (Mr 
Healey added) constructive 
engagement wasa farce from the 
beginning 

The Prime Minister had 
agreed to that in Nassau last 
year because she bad signed the 
communique saying that 
constructive engagement had 
failed to end apartheid or to gain 
freedom for Namibia. 

South African aggression 
.against the Commonwealth 
countries who were her neigh- 
bours was the business of the 
whole outside world. 

This aspect had received far 
too little attention. It had delib- 
erately disrupted the oil supplies 
of six of its neighbouring states 
and attacked vital railway 
communications in seven. 

Mr Malcolm Fraser, the for- 
mer Australian Prime Minister, 
who was a co-chairman of the 
EPG. had said slaughter and 
bloodshed in South Africa 
would be worse than it had been 
in Vietnam. The EPG as a whole 
had commented that it would be 
the worst since World War II. 

It would be a bloodbath that 
black people would be bound to 
win in the end but one which 
they wished to avoid if humanly 
possible. 

The key paragraph, almost at 
the end of the EPG report, said 
that the question was not 
whether such measures would 
compel change. It was already 
the case that their absence and 
Pretoria's belief that they need 
not be feared deferred change. 

That was a condemnation of 
the Prime Minister by a jury of 
her peers, which she had helped 
to appoint. 

Her action at Nassau had 
prevented effective action by the 


Thousands of British jobs 
depend on trade with SA 


Sir Geoffrey Howe moved the 
Government amendment which 
called on the Government, in 
■ view of the worsening situation 
in South Africa and in the light 
of the report of the Common- 
wealth EPG. to work actively 
with the European Community, 
the Commonwealth, and the 
Economic Summit Seven coun- 
tries for effective measures 
which would help achieve a 
peaceful solution in South Af- 
rica based on negotiations and a 
suspension of violence on all 
sides. 

He said if he had to identify 
one consistent thread running 
through Mr Healey's entire ap- 

R roach to foreign policy it was 
is insistence that Britain 
should do everything now that it 
did not do when he was in 
Government. If this problem 
was as easy as he suggested, it 
would have been solved long 
ago. 

Apartheid cast a shadow not 
only over South Africa but over 
the whole region and South 
Africa' defence of that indefen- 
sible system brought her into 
conflict with her neighbours. 

Britain had major economic 
interests in South Africa which 
had been totally ignored by Mr 
Healey. He had taken no ac- 
count either of the extent to 
which British capital and British 
skills and British people had 
contributed much to its eco- 
nomic vitality. In considering 
measures that should be 
adopted to promote change in 
South Africa, it would be quite 
wrong to overlook completely 
the 120.000 jobs in Britain 
which depended directly on 
trade with South Africa. If these 
jobs were destroyed in Britain 
they would not be created 
elsewhere in the world. 

There could be at least 2 
million people of British birth 
and descent in South Africa and 
800.000 of them might have a 
right of abode in this country'- 
Those people aspired to play a 
part in the development of that 
country as well as all other 
people including the black 
majority. 

Yet for all of them that future 
was at risk if it was to be 
dominated by economic strug- 
gle and racial conflict and it 
would not help if the South 
Africa that emerged from such a 
conflict saw itself as having 
done so in the face of opposition 
from Bn tain or the West 
Against that background, he 
and the Prime Minister had 
repeatedly made plain that the 
objective of the Government 
was to see apanheid brought to 
an end at as early a date as 


possible and a non-ractai society 
and democratic government 
established with proper safe- 
guards for the minorities. 

That was the only hope for a 
prosperous South - Africa living 
in harmony with its neighbours, 
but that had to be achieved 
peacefully and without 
revolution. 

it would not help to promote 
changes of that kind if there 
were to be implemented policies 
that would ruin the South 
African economy. 

The past year or two had seen 
the repeal of a great deal of petty 
apanheid. That was something 
that could not be brushed aside. 
There had been fundamental 
reforms in legislation which a 
year or so ago would have been 
beyond imagination. 

The South African Govern- 
ment had begun to find the 
courage to make a start but they 
had not yet found the final 
courage of conviction, the 
conviction necessary to say that 
apartheid in all its guises must 
be swept away. 

Tbe EPG had said that vi- 
olence was firmly rooted in the 
apartheid system. Treating it 
only as a security problem 
without tackling the underlying 
causes of the problem could 
only make things worse. It was 
that underlying problem, the 
nature of the system itselC that 
cried out for change. . 

For that change to be effective 
it needed to come from dialogue 
and the suspension of violence 
on all sides. 


realistic hope ot progress. 1 
hope, as he: does, but what 
grounds ofhope has. he that the 
Botha Government will enter 
into realistic negotiations? 

Sir Geoffrey Howe: It is because 
the group concluded as it did 
that the House is considering 
this motion and amendment 
We must ensure that the 
contribution made by the group 
is not wasted because in tbe end, 
and sooner rather than later, we 
must all hope that the only way 
forward is to be found by 
negotiation. The objectives 
must surely remain the same as 
those defined at Nassau. 

Mr Robin Maxwell— Hyslop 
(Tiverton, C); If South Africa 
threatens or executes military 
action against its neighbours, 
like Botswana, or strangles them 
economically, should we not 
warn South Africa that it is an 
act of war which will be met 
accordingly? (Cheers and 
protests). 

Sir Geoffrey Howe said that the 
point deserved further 
examination. 

It is also increasingly dear (he 
added) that the key to 
commencement of dialogue is 
the unconditional release of 
Nelson Mandela. That must be 
seen as the most important act 
of reconciliation it is necessary 
to take. 


The Eminent Persons Group 
had overcome suspicion and 
mistrust and offered the South 
African Government an 
opportunity without precedent 
to break the vicious cirde of 
violence. 

All regretted that the South 
African Government had failed 
so far to take that opportunity. 

We must urge on the South 
African Government above all 
(he said) to think again about 
this. 


Experience taught them that 
measures directed at the econ- 
omy of a country were most 
unlikely to be effective. 

No one should underestimate 
how resistance in South Africa 
could be maintained if the 
economy was seen to be under 
siege. There would be severe 
and long-term consequences for 
the South Africa 


It was on that basis that the 
Government was considering 
what measures should be put 
into place. If measures were to 


be effective, any steps taken 
Sol 


must give the South African 
Government the incentive to 


The group had charted the 
course for negotiations which 
must eventually take place, and 
had identified the obstacles 
ahead and some ways round 
them. The mission would have 
been worthwhile for that alone. 
Mr Neil Kinnock. Leader of the 
Opposition: He has referred to 
negotiation as the Prime Min- 
ister has. and has talked about 
dialogue. The EPG said the 
adequate progress they had 
looked for had not materialised. 
In recent weeks, the Govern- 
ment would appear to have 
moved consciously away from 


respond positively rather than 
offer th 


them an excuse to retreat 
still further into saolauon. 

If such steps were to be 
effective, any steps they took 
must should be designed to 
encourage the South African 
Government and business 
community to press ahead with 
the agenda of reform. Any such 
steps must secure the support of 
the international community. In 
the absence of that they would 
be no more than an empty 
gesture. 

They would be in toucb with 
their partners and in Europe. 
Consultations had already be- 
gun.

Commonwealth. If she vetoed 
action again, it could inflict 
massive shame on her Govern- 
ment. from which the British 
people as a whole could not 
escape. 

How this issue was tackled 
might well determine whether 
the Commonwealth survived as 
an institution. Warnings had 
been given by some Common- 
wealth leaden that they might 
leave the Commonwealth if the 
Prime Minister exercised her 
veto again. 

Mr Antony Marlow (Northamp- 
ton North. Ck Good riddance! 
(Labour protests) 

Mr Healey said he hoped - they 
would not carry that out because 
within two years there would be 
another British Government 
which would have a very dif- 
ferent policy on South Africa. 

Bui the warnings could not be 
ignored and nor. as the Prime 
Minister knew, could the Palace. 

The arguments which the 
Government were using against 
sanctions were increasingly 
threadbare and contradictory. 
The Prime Minister’s real con- 
cern was the future of Britain's 
economic interests. But the 
value of Britain's investments 
had already fallen by half with 
the value of the Rand. 


More . and more British 
companies as well as other 
.multinationals were gening out 
as fast as they could. There was 
an imminent prospect of the 
South African Government 
imposing : exchange controls 
which would stop British 
companies repatriating their 
profits and South Africa might 
default on its debts. 

In feet. South Africa was no 
longer a shining pillar of indus- 
trial enterprise. It -was sliding 
fast into the condition of a 


banana republic. 

But did the Government 


really oppose sanctions? Its 
amendment today would be 
quite acceptable to him. pro- 
vided the omission of the word 
“economic" did not exclude 
economic measures. The objec- 
tives which the Government set 
in its amendment were totally 
acceptable to the Opposition. 
He had been tempted to accept 
iL 

If he found the Foreign 
Secretary's speech allayed 
doubts about the meaning of the 
amendment he might still dis- 
cuss the possibility of accepting 
it with his colleagues. 

- If the Government's words 
meant what they said, and they 
were not part of the Sooth 


African vocabulary, then it was 
committing" hscJfto a course of 
action which meant increasing 
pressure -on the apartheid re- 
gime steadily over the months 
and years until it finally agreed 
to negotiation 

We would be wise (he said) to 
consider graduated economic 
and other measures to be ap- 
plied at intervals as envisaged at 
the Nassau meeting until finally 
negotiation takes place. If that ts 
what the Government is 
recommending to the House, 
that is fine by .me but if not. if 
these are simply weasel words 
by which the. Governme n t 


hopes' to escape criticisin' and 
responsibility for a few months, 
then I warn it; it is riding 
straight for disaster. 


We in Britain (he said) have 
become used to the chilly indif- 
ference of the Prime Minister to 
human suffering. We are used to 
her armour-plated complacency 
on issues where her ignorance is 
toiaL We are used to it but we 
are sick and tired of h. (Labour 
cheers) But what we cannot 
accept is her monstrous sacra 
egoism which allows her to say: 
Ir 1 were the odd one out and I 
were right it would not matter. 
She is not always right 


Economic action must not 


be judged by cost to UK 


Dr David Owen. Leader of the 
SDP. said it must be dear to 
anybody listening to the Foreign 
Secretary, that he had not made 
up his mjnd what, if anything, 
he intended to do. That might 
be an advantage to all of them, 
because the debate was early 
enough, perhaps, to influence 
derisions. 

There had been a crack in the 
previously solid facade which 
white South Africa presented to 
the world. There were signs oF a 
crack in the moral judgement of 
the Dutch Reform Church. 

I say to the Prime Minister (he 
went on) that on this issue above 
all more genuine moral indigna- 
tion about what is going on in 
South Africa would not come 


There was a desperate need 
for this country to show that it 
was prepared to pay a price, to 
live up to its feelings of moral 
repugnance. We must not pie 
said) judge any economic action 
that may be necessary by the. 
cost to us. 

Any sanction or measure if it 
was to have value must have the 
support of the entire inter- 
national community. They had 
seen in Rhodesia the problem 
when that solid support was 
lacking. 

But no one writing the history 
of the independence of Zim- 
babwe . would ever say that 
sanctions had no impact on the 
Smith regime. They had. The 
tragedy was that they coukl have 
been much more powerful and if 
they had been carefully and 
determinedly applied, the 
armed struggle would not have 
wreaked such a toll. 

The Government should rec- 
ognize that the threshold of 
economic sanctions had to be 
crossed. The best way was a ban 
on new investment It would be 
the dearest and most positive 
signal to the business commu- 
nity in South Africa that the 
squeeze would be relentlessly 
applied. 

it would also be beneficial if - 
an international strategy could . 
be devised which would restrict 
loans to South Africa, and a ban 
on direct intercontinental air 
travel Into South Africa was 
among other measures which 
ought to be thought oC 

Another sanction which was . 
much discussed was whether 
action should be taken against 
fruit and vegetables. This would 
be a way of impacting on the ' 
Afrikaans farmer, an important 
element in singling out the 
groups of people to whom it was 
necessary to bring home the 
impatience of the world. There 
was not much time. 


Mr Francis Pym (South East 
Cambridgeshire. O- a former 
Secretary of State for- Foreign 
and Commonwealth Affairs, 
said there was something 
approaching a universal feeling 
that it was no longer adequate to 
look on. wring one's hands and 
do nothing. The feeling was that 
inaction in this case was im- 
moral. 

Sanctions would inflict hard- 
ship an individuals in South 
Africa and on the national 
economy. 

But the opposite policy — not 
applying sanctions — bad not 
resulted in political progress, let 
alone power-sharing. Rather; it 
led to an extension of privilege 
and use of emergency powers. 

It also increased hardship on 
indiviuals. It was a Catch 22 
position. 

He wanted the British Gov- 
ernment to take a positive lead

in identifying . the measures 
which the EPG report unani-

not as reluctant co-operators, 
but rather setting their abjec- 
tions aside. 

• We look (he said) to i he

Minister to take the initiative to

We have to bring it back into 
the fold of our civilized democ- 
racies (he said). That, aside from 
the great disarmament issue, is 
the greatest challenge feeing the 
world today. We look to the 


British Government to meet 
that challenge. 

Dame Judith Hart (Clydesdale. 
LabV a" former' Minister for 
Overseas Development, said 
she hoped Labour MPs would 
not vote against the Govern- 
ment amendment because she 
welcomed anything that might 
lead to effective measures. 

The real issue, though, was 
what those measures should be. 

.She rejected the kind that 
merely sought to say us the 
Pretoria regime: “Behave better, 
we do not like you.” 

What she was after was what 
Mrs Thatcher had talked about 
— effective measures. 1

Sir Anthony Kershaw (Stroud.

pressures and whatever the cost.

Sanctions would be" an- ex-

more difficult, but it did not 
follow that it would change its 
mind. The idea that the present 
; . regime would have one man. 
one vote and agree, in effect, to 
commit suicide -was absolutely 
vain. 

Sanctions would not bring 
parties to ibe conference table.

from outside were renti tied to

Had diplomacy .really: been

those behind her and those who 
in many cases stood in no 
danger and perhaps themselves 
hoped to gain, stampeded into a 
policy of cry .havoc and let loose 
the does of war. 

Mr Guy Barnett (Greenwich. 
Lab) said if. there was not 
already a war in South Africa, 
there soon would be. The- vi- 
olence in South Africa and the 
violence committed by South 
Africa against its neighbours 
immediately to the north were' 
the first signs of that developing 
bloodbath. That was the reason 
he believed . this was a des- 
perately urgent situation and 
one that ' the Govdriiment's 
attitude did not measure tip to.

for an additional European

Mr Edward Taylor (Southend

proposal to set up the new court 
should be incorporated into the

Mrs Lynda Chalker. Minister of 
State for Foreign and Common-

the proposal was that the Court 
Of First Instance would do no 
more than relieve the Court of 
Justice of some of the existing 
burden of work. It would hear 
certain classes of action brought 


subject lu a right of appeal on 
points of law to the Court of 
Justice itself. 

ft would not bear cases 
brought by member states nor by

be there to clear np some of the

of Justice. 

We are seeking (she said) to 
make it easier and quicker to 
fntroduce procedural' reforms. 
Substantive power changes will 
have to go before national

way.

practical measure could help the

Misunderstanding led to loss of plutonium 


HOUSE OF LORDS 


A misunderstanding between 
British Nuclear Fuels Ltd and 
the Atomic Energy Authority 
led to the disappearance of eight 
kilogrammes of plutonium be- 
tween Seltafieid and Dounreay. 
Lord Gray of Contin. Minister of 
State for Scotland, said during 
question time in the House of 
Lords. 

Answering a question from 
Lord Brockway (Lab) about the 
missing material, he said: Resi- 
dues containing plutonium 
from the fabrication at Sella field 
of fuel for the prototype fest 
reactor at Dounreay are sent 
from Scllafield to Dounreay for 
recovery of the plutonium. 

A discrepancy was identified 
beiween the estimated pluto- 
nium content of materials sent 
and the plutonium recovered. 


plutonium was subsequently 
found to be still undissolved 
within the reprocessing plant. 
Thai was recovered. There was 
no possibility of an explosion 
and there was no danger to staff 
or the public. 

Lord Brockway: The . extraor- 
dinary and disturbing feet is that 
eight kilogrammes of pluto- 
nium. enough to make two atom 
bombs, was officially listed as 
missing in 1984 and it was not 
found until 1 1 months later at 
the bottom of the dissolver at 
Dounreay. 


Would he confirm that it was 
wrongly labelled when it was 
sent from Sdiafieid and should 
not have been sent at all because 
it had not been sintered and 
would not dissolve in nitric 
acid? Will the Government take 
action to prevent a recurrence of 

this extraordinary event? .. 

Lord Gray of Contin: I cannot 
confinn. tiie ; quantityJnvolved_ 


bombs. There was no risk at any 
lime of this material being so 
used. 

Lord Motley (Lab): Will the 
system be investigated to make 
sure this, cannot happen again? 
Lord Gray of Contin: There was 
dearly some misunderstanding 
between British Nuclear Fuels 
Ltd and the Atomic Energy 
Authority about the quantity of 
potentially insoluable material 
sent from Sella field. Bath bodies 
are taking steps to ensure there 
is no recurrence. 

Lord Avebury (Lk Would the 
Government ensure there is a 
review of the accounting 
procedures? 

Lord Gray of Contin: ft was as a 
result of the accounting proce- 
dure that the initial discrepancy 
was discovered. 

LordStoddartof5*indoii (Lab): 
Eight kilogrammes of . pluto- 
nium is an enormous amount of ■ 


mind that it is .measured and 
accounted for in grammes. 

Has not the impression been 
given of slackness in manage- 
memai Sdiafieid which must be 
put right and-a lack of. com mu- 
ni cation between Dounreay and 
Sellafiekf? - 

Lord Gray of Contin: I would 
not accept that. There has been a 
great deal of care taken through- 
out the. industry to ensure that 
there is no ' danger in . the 
transporting of materials be- 
tween Sdiafieid and Dounreay.

as they came in- 
Mr. Kevin McNamara (Huff

seems to be all at sea over this

attended the tendering for the

Mr John Lee. Under Secretary 
of State for Defence Procure- 
ment. also told MPs during 
CMtsieas questioning that the 
US Government bad made pro- 
posals to supply either of flte 
systems currently used in their 
nrifitasy service: A0 contractors 
had been asked to state firm 
prices by July 7. 

Tbe Ministry of Defence had 
something like 50 officials work- 
ing on tbe overall project. 

Mr - Alexander Carlile 
(Montgomery, L) asked why the 
tender dace had been moved so 
often — row times, he believed. 

Was it because of a running 
dispute between the Department 
of Trade and (be Ministry of 
Deforce? 

Mr Lee said the Gove r n m ent 
.was running a fair competition 
and Intended to be totally even- 
handed. (Labour tanshter) 

Mr Gerald Howarth (Ouroock 
and B nr n tv ropd, C) said that a 
number of overseas proposals 
would provide aircraft other 
than the Nimrod. 

If one of those was selected, 
did Mr Lee foresee the 11 AEW 
Nimrods could be possflrfy re- 
deployed in the anti-submarine 
warfare (ASW) role? 

Mr Lee said that suggestion 
would be considered, as would 
any cost-effective solution. 

Mr Dale Campbell -Savours 
(Workington, Lab) suggested 
that the scandal of Nimrod, 
made by Marconi Systems, was 
surpassed only by Tigcrfish. the 
torpedo that did ml work. 

Did tut Marconi Underwater 
Systems Limited need a major 
shake-up? Had they not pur- 
chased the services of Mr James

MPs want guaranteed 
jobs scheme for the 
long-term unemployed 


The Government should 
give a job guarantee to every- 
_one out of work for more than 
three years, an all-party Com- 
mons committee recommend - 
-- ed yesterday. . 

- It called for pilot schemes, 
.offering a one-year job to 

* some of the long-term unezn- 
. ployed, as a way of reducing 
“ the “prison sentence" of 
7 unemployment. 

Ministers have promised to 
-give the proposal full consid- 
eration, as well as other mea- 
; sures suggested by- the 
' employment select committee 
. to cut the dole queues. 

Mr Eric Forth. Conserva- 
;uve MP for Mid Worcester- 

- shire, was the only committee 
member to vote against a 

• nationwide jobs guarantee 
scheme, estimated at costing 
£1.000 million. Two other 

' ' Conservative MPs on the 
committee yesterday repeated 
their strong backing for it, - 

The committee, originally 

- called for a £3300 million 
' package of measures to tackle 

long-term unemployment 
‘ But the Government disputed 

- the costings and did not back 

- the proposals. 

The committee responded 
yesterday by scaling down its 
original demands and said the 
£1.000 million jobs-guarantee 
scheme would lead to savings 
' in social security benefits. 

It stated: “We welcome- the

reiteration of - the 
Government’s concern about 
the long-term unemployed 
and lake its reply as in no way 
a rejection of the committee's 
assertion that the- long-term 
unemployed represent a prior- 
ity category for assistance. 

“It is for them that the 
privation and damage caused 
by long-term unemployment 
is greatest and that is why we 
recommend urgent action 
should be taken to make these 
people a potential employer's 
first choice, not bis Hast." 

Mr Ron Leighton, the com- 
mittee chairman and Labour 
MP for Newham North East. 
sai± .-“People have compared 
unemployment to a prison 
sentence. We should at' least 
put a time limit on the 
sentence. Three years should 
.be the maximum that any- 
body is in the prison of 

unemployment-" 

• Lending his support, Mr 
Andrew Rowe, Conservative 
MP for Mid Kent, said: “The 
offer of a guarantee to those 
unemployed for three years or 
more would dramatically alter 
the climate and the whole 
debate about long-term unem- 
ployment. L think the Govern- 
ment is much closer to giving 
this guarantee than appears to 
be recognized." 

Mr Bryan Nicholson, chair- 
man of the Manpower Ser- 
vices Commission, was also

Central Criminal Court 
yesterday. 

Ross, aged 22, .was de- 
scribed by Sir James. Miskin, 
QC. the Recorder of London, 
as “a very serious and con- 
tinuing danger to the public". - 

Sir James said that he 
wanted everyone to know that 
deterrent sentences would be 
handed out to those prepared 
to use firearms. ' 

Two men. who were shot 
were lucky to survive. 

The judge awarded one, of 
. them. Mr Andrew Douglas, 
aged 27. a travelling salesman, 
1-of Walerhall Avenue, 

• Chingford, north-east Lon- 


don. £200 for his “incredible ,

Mr John Abrahams, head- 
master of the school- which

“The exact cause of the out-

because the incubation period 
is between two and six weeks." 

He added:“We have em-

hygiene and have withdrawn

It was a mild form of the 
.disease, he said, and there was 
no danger of anyone dying 
from it or suffering any long- 
term effects.

the committee could not see it

Columnist 
‘subject 
of planned 
ridicule 9 

Mrs Rosemarie Marciei-RI- 
viere, the wealthy socialite, 
threw Mr Taki 
Theodoracopulos out of her 
jet-set lunch party .'like a dog' 

as part ofa plan to ridicule and 

humiliate him in front of his 
friends, it was claimed in the 
i High Court yesterday. 

In his closing speech on the 
tenth day of the libel action 
brought by Mrs Marcie-Rivi- 
ere, aged 71. against Mr 
Theodoracopulos. aged 48. Mr 
Andrew Bateson. QC. for the 
defence, told the jury that the 
evidence left no choice but to 
accept that was so. 

The first question for the 
jury was whether the case was 
really a libel action or just “a 
lady using her considerable 
wealth and the English courts 
j to pursue a vendetta against 
Taki." Mr Bateson said. 

Mrs Marcie- Riviere, mar- 
ried five times, claims that she 
was made out to be a “high 
class tart" and a “coarse and 
ill-mannered woman of loose 
sexual morals” by Mr 
Theodoracopulos in his “High 
Life” column in The Specta- 
tor. after the lunch party at her 
villa on the Greek island of 
Spetsai in 1982. 

In the article Mr 
Theodoracopulos said that she 
had set a trap for him. Mr 
Bateson said that he accepted 
the words used were offensive 
and would be a libel if they 
were not true. 

Mr Theodoracopulos, the 
publishers of The Spectator 
and Mr Alexander Chancellor, 
its former editor, all deny 
libel Mr Theodoracopulos is 
counter claiming libel dam- 
ages over an interview given 
by Mrs Marcie-Riviere to 
another magazine, in which 
she said his article was all lies. 

The hearing continues. 


Action against solicitors made easier 


By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


A foster, cheaper way for 
dissatisfied clients to pursue 
complaints of negligence agai- 
nst solicitors is launched to- 
day by the Law Society. 

It is funding a new arbitra- 
tion scheme which means that 
for the first lime, allegations of 
negligence need not be pur- 
sued through the courts. 

Instead for a fee of £40, plus 
VAT, clients can have the 
complaint referred to an arbi- 
trator. iq be appointed by the 
Chartered Institute of Arbit- 
rators. 


If negligence is proved, the 
arbitrator will have power to 
make damages awards. In 
practice these are unlikely to 
amount to more than several 
hundred pounds; as bigger 
claims would probably be 
more appropriately pursued in 
the courts. 

The scheme is the latest of 
several proposed reforms to 
the solicitors' complaints ma- 
chinery; and coinrides with a 
similar move, expected soon 
to be announced bv the Bar. 

The Law Society has also 


been granted new powers to 
handle complaints about 
shoddy work, under the 
Administration of Justice Act 
1985: and those powers, along 
with a new Solicitors' Com- 
plaints Bureau separate from 
the Law Society, are expected 
to come into force by the end 
of the year. 

The Law Society has no 
power to investigate com- 
plaints of negligence, which - 
until the new scheme - had to 
be resolved by the courts. But 
it is setting up a nationwide 


negligence panel of solicitors 
to give one hour's free advice 
to aggrieved clients wanting to 
pursue a complaint 

Under the new Complaints' 
Board, it is expected com- 
plaints will be investigated by 
a committee, with a lay major- 
ity of members. 

The Solicitors’ Disciplinary 
Tribunal with its powers to 
reprimand, fine, suspend or 
strike off the roll, will still deal 
with the most serious com- 
plaints of professional mis- 
conduct. 


Minister’s 
inquiry on 
‘anti-race 9 
teachers 

By Nicholas Wood 
Political Reporter 

The Home Office has 
launched an inquiry into ibe 
activities of some staff at a a 
multicultural education centre 
in BristoL 

It wants to know whether 
they are fulfilling their duty to 
confine themselves profes- 
sionally to teaching children 
of Commonwealth origin. 

If. as has been claimed, they 
are found to be spending time 
on campaigning on racial 
matters, the Avon Centre in 
the city would lose some of the 
£700.000-a-year gram it re- 
ceives from Whitehall under 
section 11 of the Local Gov- 
ernment Act 1986. 

The investigation comes af- 
ter controversy about the case 
of Mr Jonathan Savery. aged 
37. a teacher based at the 
centre but attached to a local 
school, where he leaches En- 
glish to pupils from ethnic 
minorities. 

He was cleared recently of a 
charge of racism brought by 
about 20 staff at the centre. 

The inquiiy was disclosed 
by Mr David Waddington. 
Minister of State at the Home 
Office, in a Commons written 
reply. 

His officials have ques- 
tioned council officers “about 
the functions of certain post s’* 
and have asked for more 
information. 

“In the light of this informa- 
tion, which is awaited, we will 
determine whether these func- 
tions can properly be support- 
ed under section li." Mr 
Waddington said. . . 

The move was welcomed by 

Mr Savery, 

“There are around half a 
dozen people who. in my 
view, are drawing money un- 
der false pretences. 

“They do nothing of tangi- 
ble benefit to the section 11 
group: they just swan around 
the county drawing fot sala- 
ries. They do no useful work; 
in fact they undermine the 
positive work done by others 
because they are not suffi- 
ciently anti-racist." 

Police death 

The body of Mr James 
Tuplin. Chief Constable of the 
Port of London, will be flown 
back to Britain after his death 
in Taiwan four days ago. Mr 
Tuplin. aged 62. collapsed 
with a heart attack at an 
international conference 
dinner.

Two senior army men 
killed in Madrid 

gun attack 



• Two senior Spanish army. 
1 officers and the driver of their 
-official car were shot dead in a 
Jhaif of machine gun fire by 
-two young men- and one 
rwoman during the lunchtime 
^rush hour yesterday. They 
Twere on a boulevard flanking 
Madrid's Manzanares river. 

-» Witnesses safd the killers 
I' fired directly through the 
-army vehicle's windows from 
Uheir passing car. 



31a jor Ynestrilias: known 
^ for his right-wing views. 


From Richard Wijgj, Madrid 

. ETA. the Basque separatist 
organization, was immediate- 
ly suspected. "It has often 
struck during election cam- 
paigns — Spaniards go to the 
polls on Sunday in their fourth 
genera] election since the ad- 
vent of democracy in 1977. 

Spain's Socialist . Party, 
seeking a second four-year 
term, immediately put out a 
statement condemning a “ter- 
rorist provocation” aimed to 
destabilize Sunday's vote. 

One of the victims was 
Major Ircardo Saenz de 
YnesuiUas, aged SI, who was 
well known as an officer of 
extreme right-wing views. He 
was a -friend of the former 
army colonel. Antonio Tejero, 
who stormed Parliament at 
gunpoint in the 1981 coup 
attempt.. 

The other victims were 
Lieutenant-Colonel Carlos 
Besieiro. aged SO, and the 
soldier, driver. 

' An attempt was made by 
several passers-by to stop the 
killers who fled in.a Renault 


with false number plates. A 
policeman on a motor cycle 
was injured when be attempt- 
ed to stop them. 

Large crowds quickly gath- 
ered on the boulevard and 
began angrily shouting: “ETA 
murderers.” 

Major Ynestrillas was 
couit-martialled with Colonel 
Tqero for plotting in 1978 to 
seize the office of the then 
Prime Minister. Sefior Adolfo 
Suarez, and take him hostage. 
The- major served a one-year 
prison sentence. 

There is a clear risk now of 
an extreme right-wing reac- 
tion in the last days of the 
election campaign. A coalition 
of minor right-wing and Cath- 
olic groups is running on 
Sunday. 

ETA's last main attack in 
Madrid was in late April when 
it killed five members of the 
paramilitary Civil Guard as 
their van was hit by a car 
bomb. 

This election campaign has 
been relatively quiet. 


Scandal may cut majority 


- A currency evasion scandal 
and a simmering conflict with 
church leaders threatened yes- 
jenfay to diminish the marg in 
■of the anticipated Socialist 
victory in next Sunday's gen- 
eral electron. 

A director-general at the 
-Defence Ministry, General 
Valentin Harnandaz Paladau 
resigned on Friday just before 
.testifying in a judicial investi- 
gation into the illegal removal 
■of an estimated 800 million 
pesetas (£3.9 million) from the 
country. 

- Among others under investi- 
gation is a member of the press 


From Harry Debelins, Madrid 

section at the Prime 
Minister's office. 

The monarchist daily, ABC, 
a strong snppporter of the 
conservative opposition, de- 
manded yesterday that “the 
Government should clarify the 
matter of the currency evasion 
before next Sunday”. 

The standing committee of 
the Spanish Iranian Catholic 
Episcopal Council met here 
yesterday to decide whether to 
distribute, before die elections, 
an • anti-abortion document 
which has already been 
prepared. 

But some members of the 
hierarchy did not wait. The 


bishops of five dioceses dis- 
tributed pastoral letters which 
were dearly designed to dis- 
courage votes for the Social- 
ists. 

The Archbishop of Burgos, 
Monsignor Teodoro Cardemai 
Fernandez, warned the faithful 
against “an electoral offer 
which includes legislation on 
abortion, contrary to the dear 
doctrine of- the Catholic 
Church”. 

He urged them “not to 
favour with their votes the 
implantation of a design for 
society inspired by material- 
ism, secularism and God- 
lessness”. 


Talk with 
PLO rocks 
Knesset 

Jerusalem — Mr Moham- 
imed Mian, a member of the 
■Knesset, has had a secret 
: meeting with Mr Yassir 
Arafat, chairman of the Pales- 
tine Liberation Organization 
(lan Murray writes). . 

The announcement, made 
by Mr Miari himself, came as 
a shock to the vast majority of 
members, who regard the PLO 
as a terrorist organization 
-which must not be contacted. 

; Mr Miari however, who 
was accompanied at the meet- 
ing last week by a senior 
member of the Anglican 
church from Nazareth, said 
that he and the PLO leader 
had agreed when they met that 
the only way for peace was to 
establish a direct dialogue 
between Israel and the PLO. 

- Meetings between Israelis 
and the PLO are not forbidden 
by law. although a Bill is 
before the Knesset which 
seeks to make it an offence. 

World jogger 
yows to go on

from Forest Road. Denmead, 
near Portsmouth, vowed to 
continue his attempt to be-, 
come the first man to jog 
round the world despite being 
robbed of his passport and all 
his belongings in New York. 

V On Monday, after the day- 
light robbery, Mr Weston said 
he was giving up. But after a 
night's sleep, he confirmed: “I 
will go on. It will just take me 
a bit longer, I suppose."

ter, Senor Jaime Castro, nar- 
rowly survived an 
assassination attempt when 
his car was - ambushed in 
central Bogota early yesterday^ 
The April 19 Movement 
(M-19) immediately claimed 
responsibility, saying it was an 
“act of vengeance" for the 
bloodbath which resulted 
when government troops 
stormed the Palace of Justice 
when it was in the hands of M- 
19 guerrillas last November. 
Two of Senor Castro’s 


bodyguards and a police offi- 
cer were wounded in the 
attack, which came only 24 
hours after the minister had 
announced that the foU text of 
a controversial official report 
on the government manage 
mem of the siege would be 
published, regardless of 
whether or not its conclusions 
were favourable to President 
Belisario Be tan cur, his Cabi- 
net or the security forces. 

The attackers, including 
three women escaped. .

Angola told the United

attack on its oil port of 
Namibe on June S was tanta-

sunk and two Cuban ships 
damaged in an attack which 
South Africa denied took

caught by Mr Couze Alberts, the 
administrative attache at the embas- 
sy, who was yesterday expelled from 
Australia and has been given 10 days 
to leave (Tony Dnbondin writes from 
Melbourne). ' 

A federal police report concluded 
that Mr Alberts had nsed reasonable 


force when dealing with the protester. 

Mr Cornelias Bastiaanse, the 
South African Ambassador, showed 
no regret and said; “We live in a 
world, unfortunately, where embas- 
sies and embassy officials are of 
course particularly vulnerable to 
attacks. . .We would hope for the

South Africa bans satellite broadcasts 


From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

Live satellite transmissions 
from South Africa by foreign 
television companies have 
been banned by the 
Government's Bureau for In- 
formation under the national 
state of emergency declared by 
President Botha on June 12. 

Television companies are 
already forbidden to take or 
broadcast any film of 
“unrest", which coven; any 
form of riot or disturbance, as 
well as strikes and boycotts, 
and any counter-action taken 
by the police. 

The main purpose of the 


latest restriction is to prevent 
live “two-way" interviews 
which, unlike pre-recorded 
material are not subject to 
any editing process. Live radio 
interviews, conducted from 
abroad, are also banned. 

“We were told that the 
reason for not allowing us the 
(satellite) facilities was to en- 
able us to check for subversive 
statements before the material 
is viewed in America.” Mr 
Dave Allen, bureau chief of 
the American ABC television 
network, said. 

In a live interview, a televi- 
sion company could reason- 
ably plead that it had no 


control over any “subversive 
statements" made by the in- 
terviewee. Now that possibili- 
ty has been removed 

At his daily press confer- 
ence in Pretoria, Brigadier 
Leon Mellet, the Bureau for 
Information's chief spokes- 
man. also said that govern- 
ment ministers and officials 
would not agree to any more 
interviews conducted by for- 
eign radio and television sta- 
tions from abroad, “for the 
time being". 

The news media have been 
significant targets of the emer- 
gency measures.One of the 


ANC blames ‘allies of a truly murderous regime* 

West accused of backing Pretoria 


From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

Mr Oliver Tambo, president 
of the African National Con- 
gress, yesterday accused 
Western powers — in particu- 
lar Britain, France, West Ger- 
many and the US — of being 
“co-conspirators in a crime of 
immense dimensions” for their 
failure to Impose sanctions on 
Pretoria. 

Speaking in Paris at the 
five-day United Nations con- 
ference on sanctions against 
Sooth Africa, Mr Tambo. who 
was praised in the recent 
report of the Commonwealth 
Eminent Persons Group, said 
Britain, France, West Germa- 
ny and the US could not avoid 
the blame for “the inevitable 
and terrible outcome of chaos” 
throughout southern Africa. 

It was they who had shel- 


tered the apartheid regime 
from decisive international ac- 
tion, he claimed, adding that 
they had helped that regime in 
the past and were continidng 
to do so. 

“Current reports confirm 
that the governments of these 
countries remain determined 
to persist in that ignoble and 
dishonourable role of allies of 
a truly murderous regime. If 
those who have the power to 
impose sanctions fail to do so 
now, then history will sorely 
judge them as co-conspirators 
and participants in the com- 
mission of a crime of immense 
dimensions.” 

Mr Tambo said the ANC 
“would have loved to have 
liberated its country from a 
racist tyranny by pacific 
means, including negotiat- 
ions", bnt had failed. The 


Commonwealth mission had 
confirmed that the regime of 
President Botha was not pre- 
pared to resolve South Africa's 
problems by negotiation. 

In its report on Sooth 
Africa, published last week, 
the group described Mr 
Tambo and Mr Nelson 
Mandela, the imprisoned 
ANC leader, as “among the 
most striking figures whom we 
met in the course of our work”. 
It had been particularly im- 
pressed by their “reasonable- 
ness, absence of rancour and 
readiness to find a negotiated 
solution . . ." 

Mr Ide Oumaron. the secre- 
tary-general of the Organiza- 
tion of African Unity, who is 
also in Paris for the UN 
conference, deplored the in- 
ability of the 12 EEC countries 
to agree on sanctions. 


main restraints is a prohibi- 
tion on the reporting of “sub- 
versive statements", which 
includes statements advocat- 
ing civil disobedience, strikes, 
boycotts, economic sanctions 
and conscientious objection. 

All journalists are forbidden 
to enter any black residential 
area, or any other area where 
“unrest” is occurring. No 
“news or comment” about the 
activities of the police and

Briton arrested 
after raid freed 
by Zimbabwe 

From Jan Raath 
Harare 

Mr Callum Anderson, one 
of the first people to have been 
arrested in the wake of the 
South African raid on Zimba- 
bwe last month, has been 
released from detention. 

Mr Anderson, aged 33, who 
holds British citizenship, said 
in a telephone interview from. 
Bulawayo that he had been 
told after being held for five 
days by security authorities 
that he was “in the clear”. 

However, he was held for 
another 25 days . 

Local press reports said at 
the time of his arrest that he 
was suspected of having let the 
South African commandos 
spend a night at his house. 

Yesterday. Mr Anderson 
said there was “no truth at all” 
in the report 


Pay strike 
sets test 
for Athens 

From Mario Modiano 
' Athens 

A strike by Greek pilots 
over a pay dispute is becoming 
a test of the Socialist 
Government's determination 
to stick to its economic auster- 
ity programme. 

The dispute has crippled 
Olympic Airways, the state- 
owned national airline, for the 
past'eight days. 

When the airline's 365 pi- 
lots and 112 flight engineers 
defied a civil mobilization 
ordet which bans strikes as a 
felony, the Government jailed 
six pilots, dismissed a further 
39 and applied to the courts to 
confiscate their personal prop- 
erty, to support claims of 
damages to' the company re- 
sulting from their action: of 
more than £Y million a day. 

At the same /time it char- 
tered four aircraft and 80 crew 
from Lebanon's Middle East 
Airlines. With the help. of 35 
Greek pilots who opted to 
work -it operated 45 of the 
scheduled 120 daily interna- 
tional and domestic flights. 

Mr George Rapadimiirioou' 
the Transport Minister,. yes- 
terday rejected mediation of- 
fers from the European Pilots' 
Union and the Athens .Bar 
Association. 

Mr Spyros Horafas, presi- 
dent of the Greek pilots' 
union, said yesterday -that the 
strikers were ready to resume 
work if the Government re- 
voked all legal measures taken 
against colleagues and guaran- 
teed negotiations. 


Norwegians remain on 
alert after Chernobyl 

From Tony Samstag, Oslo 


As health officials from the 
Nordic countries meet today in 
the Swedish city of Uppsala to 
compare notes on the effects of 
the Chernobyl disaster, Nor- 
wegian authorities, hare 
warned the public not to eat 
freshwater fish because of 
radioactive contamination. 

The Health Directorate said 
preliminary tests had shown 
levels of radioactive caesium in 
Arctic char from the county of 
North Troendetag to be more 
than 10 times the permitted 
maxim tun.. 

The latest findings suggest 
that contamination of plants 
and animals over a wide area 
of Norway may have been for 
worse than was first thought. 
Reindeer, cattle, deer, elk, roe 
and even bears have been 
affected. 

There are fears that the 
traditional hunting season win 
have to be curtailed because 
venison may be unfit to eat; 
and scientists gave a warning 
several weeks ago that the 
particular vulaerabQity of 
reindeer to radioactive iso- 


topes, concentrated in the 
lichen on which they feed, was 
cause for alarm in the huge 
ranching industry of the north- 
ern counties and Lapland. 

Confirmation of high radia- 
tion levels in farm fish could 
also prove catastrophic for 
Norway's thriving aquaculture 
industry. 

Thousands of tons of vegeia- 
ble crops have already had to 
be destroyed, and for the first 
time minute traces of radioac- 
tive strontium have been de- 
tected in milk. 

AD government statements 
emphasize, somewhat confus- 
ingly, that there is nocanse for 
alarm, comparing even the 
highest levels of radioactive 
contamination in foodstuffs to 
that of Tontine X-ray examina- 
tions. In private, however, 
some officials joke that such 
reassurances may be true as 
for as they go, bnt the dosages 
are in foct the eq divalent of 
“routine” examinations every 
day over a period of many 
years. 


Phalangists elect new leader 


Beirut (Reuter) — 
Lebanon's main Christian 
Phalange Party has chosen a 
new leader as fighting went on 
around three refugee camps. 

The party elected Mr 
George Saadeh president in a 
landmark victory for reform- 
ing “young hawks” eager to 
win a bigger say in moves to 
end the civil war. 


The vote gave Mr Saadeh a 
53-41 victory over Mr Hie 
Karameh. a close associate of 
President GemayeL 

Political analysts said the 
poll was a contest between 
traditionalists and Phalange 
leaden who wanted greater 
democracy in the parly, long 
seen as a Gemayel family fief. 


Church accused of guerrilla links 

From John Carlin, Mexico City 


A battle" is brewing in El 
Salvador between the US- 
backed Government and the 
Roman Catholic Church over 
accusations that. church and 
human rights groups have 
been acting as fronts for left- 
wing guerrilla organizations. 

According to testimonies 
allegedly submitted to the 
authorities ; fary former mem- 
bers of two wril-esiablished 
human rights groups, these 
groups for several years have 
been systematically providing 
disinformation . on human 
rights issues ter discredit the

Duarte., its Army, and the US. 


country afloat with annual aid 
totalling 5500 million (£329 
million). 

The testimony of one wom- 
an in particular. Scnora Luz 
Janet Alfaro, has been given 
great publicity by the Gov- 
ernment. 

Arrested on May 21. this 
former member of the Com- 
missioir for Human Rights has 
claimed that an umbrella aid 
organization known as Dia- 
oonia. which organizes inter- 
national relief programmes on 
behalf of various churches, 
channels 95 per cent -of its 
funds to the Farabundo Marti 
National Liberation . JFront. 



But Monsignor Arturo Ri- 
vera y Damas, the Archbishop 
of Sian Salvador, has cast 
doubt on her allegations. 

In a sermon inis week he 
said she and a former member 
of a group of mothers of 
people who had disappeared 
were arrested and tortured 

The US Embassy in El 
Salvador, however, appears 
convinced, having long be- 
lieved that the two human 
rights groups were influenced 
and manipulated by the 
FMLN. 

The embassy said it had 
reason to believe Seftora

You can see what happens

Its young people end up 
buying other nations’ goods 
instead of making them for 
themselves. 

And whilst Britain has 
never been short on talent, we 
have tended tofte rather short- 
sighted on training. We’ve 


lagged a long way behind l.g

Polish police drive nets 
dozens of Solidarity 
activists and presses 


THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JUNE 18 1986 


$&&&&& -JWfWs 

HX.f.XlSlW 


OVERSEAS NEWS 


Hie Polish authorities have 
launched a big operation 
against the Solidarity under- 
ground in the wake of the 
arrest of the fugitive union 
leader, Mr Zbigniew Bujak. 
Several dozen activists have 
been detained, flats raided and 
several important clandestine ' 
printing presses have been 
uncovered. 

The thrust of the offensive 
appears to be in Warsaw, 
where Mr Bujak was the 
regional Solidarity leader, but 
police action in Gdansk led to 
the detention of several activ- 
ists. including Miss Anna 
Waientynowicz. 

Mr Jerzy Urban, the gov- 
ernment spokesman, con- 
firmed yesterday that Miss 
Waientynowicz. a crane driver 
who was at the centre of the 
1980 strike wave, was de- 
tained by police on suspicion 
of trying to stir up public 
unrest, but was later released . 

The police campaign has at 
least three dimensions. First, 
having arrested Mr Bujak just 
over two weeks ago. there was 
no logical reason for allowing 
lower-level Solidarity cells to 
continue. 

Some had already been 
infiltrated by informers —

Interior Minister, haspublidy 

‘Dynamite 
Olga 9 to 
lead party 

From Christopher Mosey 
Stockholm 

Sweden yesterday elected its , 
first ever woman party leader 
— rather late in the day for a 
country that prides itself on 
equality in all things. 

Mrs Karin Soder, aged 57, 
known as “Dynamite Olga” 
because of her fiery tempera- 
ment. takes over the agrarian- 
based Centre Party. 

She contradicts most of the j 
usual misconceptions concern- 
ing Swedish womanhood still 
held by foreigners, marking a 
return to a fiercely puritan 
tradition, opposed to both 
sexual licence and the easing 
of her country's archaic liquor 
laws. 

During her time as Minister 
for Social Affairs Cram 1979 to 
1982, Mrs Soder was respon- 
sible for the drafting of legisla- 
tion which curbed the activit- 
ies of Sweden's sex dubs so 
drastically that most have 
since gone out of business. She 
also banned the sale of alcohol 
at state liquor stores on Satur- 
day mornings. 

Mrs Soder's chances, how- 
ever, of becoming Sweden's 
first woman prime minister are 
not good. Her predecessor, Mr 
Thorbjora FaJJdia, caused a 
political sensation when he 
toppled Olof Palme in 1976 to 
head Sweden's first non-So- 
cialist administration for 47 
years, but his sorry perfor- 
mance in office considerably 
weakened the party. 

Mrs Soder. however, an 
implacable opponent of 
nuclear power, is expected to 
gain support in the wake of the 
Chernobyl disaster. 


From Roger Boyes, Warsaw 

admitted that this was hap- 
pening — and others were 
dangerously exposed when a 
large pan of the Warsaw 
Solidarity leadership fell into 
police hands. 

Second. Poland will soon 
stage its Communist Party 
congress and wants to demon- 
strate that it is not soft on 
Solidarity. 

Finally, an amnesty for 
political prisoners is under 
consideration - if. as Mr 
Urban said yesterday, the 
domestic conditions warrant 
h. Waves of arrests also 
preceded previous amnesties, 
partly to dramatize the gesture 
of throwing open the prison 
ceil& 

Much depends on the sym- 
bolic importance of Mr Bujak. 
The authorities claim that 
they found espionage materi- 
al. including encoded infor- 
mation. in his flat. 

The owner of the flat, a 
senior official at the Foreign 
Ministry. Mr Zbigniew 
Wrozniak, is to be charged 
with hampering the investiga- 
tion into the Bujak case, Mr 
Urban said. 

Apart from the Warsaw 
Solidarity organizers arrested 
simultaneously with or soon 
after Mr Bujak, there have 
been several other arrests. 

Mulroney 
on trade 
offensive 

From John Best 
Ottawa 

The Canadian Prime Minis- 
ter, Mr Brian Mulroney, has 
launched the nation into a 
politically sensitive set of free- 
trade negotiations with the US 
by telling Canadians that “an 
important turning-point” in 
their country's life has been 
reached. 

The talks, expected to last a 
year or more, officially started 
yesterday in Washington be- 
tween US and Canadian 
officials. 

Mr Mulroney went on na- 
tional TV on the eve of the 
opening round to try to tally 
Canadians behind his init- 
iative. 

The Prime Minister has 
been under fierce attack from 
both opposition parties in the 
Commons, the Liberals and 
the New Democrats, for pro- 
posing the free-trade discus- 
sions. The country appears 
divided. 

It is already dear that the 
question will be an issue in the 
next federal election cam- 
paign. about two years from 
now, and could make or break 
the Conservative Prime Min- 
ister's political career. 

Mr Mulroney sounded al- 
most Church ill inn as he asked 
Canadians for their support 
“These discussions represent 
an important turning-point in 
the life of our country,” he 
said. 

Mr John Turner, the Liberal 
Opposition leader, who ap- 
peared after Mr Mulroney, 
told Canadians that his party 
“cannot support the Tory 
trade initiative”. 




UN body gets its cash 


Geneva - Despite the Unit- 
ed Nations economy drive, 
the UN Development Pro- 
gramme has achieved its 5780 
million (about £510 million) 
target for the year, an 8 per 
cent increase on the 1985 
figure (Alan McGregor 
writes). 

Announcing this yesterday, 
its new administrator. Mr 
William Drake, pointed out 


that expenditure in real terms 
had remained unchanged for 
15 years. 

Reduced contributions by 
the US. Britain and France 
have been made up by larger 
donations from the Nordic 
countries. Italy. The Nether- 
lands and Spain. 

Mr Draper intimated that 
the UN Volunteers Pro- 
gramme will be doubled.

has become a dangerous pur- 
suit Sympathizers who used

now having second thoughts.

US to reject Kre mlin demand on SDI 


By Henry Stanhope 

The United States wifi not 
agree to the latest Soviet 
demand that hs Star Wars 
defence programme be limited 
to laboratory research, a se- 
nior Pentagon official said 
yesterday. 

More than half of the 
Strategic Defence Initiative 
(SDI) is now devoted to the 
development of test models, 
which would have to be 
scrapped if the Soviet proposal 


at the Geneva aims talks, were 
accepted. 

The official, who was in 
London for talks at the Minis- 
try of Defence, said a test 
planned for about 1990, in 
which a ground -launched mis- 
sile would try to destroy an 
enemy weapon in space, would 
be among the casualties. 

So would anotberwfaich 
would involve branching an 
infra-red sensor mto space to 
detect and track rockets. 


Meanwhile, the Russians 
were continuing laser and 
particle beam weapon re- 
search at a number of sites 
including their ah- force re- 
search station at Sary Sbagan. 

The Soviet demand was 
contained in a confidential 
package of proposals put for- 
ward recently at the Geneva 
talks — then repeated in public 
by Mr Gorbachov hi a speech 
to the Central Committee of 
the Communist Party on 
Monday. 


' He also wanted a premise 
that Washington wonld abide 
by the Anti-Ballistic Missile 
Treaty for at least 15 years - 
in retnra for which the Rus- 
sians would agree to cuts in the 
number of strategic missiles 
and warheads. 

Although unacceptable as it 
stands, “the demand is bring 
seen as a sign of some move- 
ment by the Russians who at 
one time insisted on an end to 
SDI- altogether. 


Thousands 
mourn at 
funeral for 
torn bibles 

From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

Thousands of mourners 
from all over Israel yesterday 
attended the orthodox funeral 
of the prayer books torn apart 
on Saturday by vandals who 
attacked a Yeshiva (bible 
school) in Tel Aviv. 

A funeral of this kind is laid 
down by religious law as bring 
necessary and die orthodox 
leaders wanted to make an 
occasion of it to emphasize 
their horror at the desecration 
of the school in the spiralling 
conflict between the religious 
and secular communities. 

Vandals yesterday attacked 
another Yeshiva in Ashdod.

demning the orthodox on the

In a statement to the 
Knesset, Mr Shimon Peres, 
the Prime Minister, has prom- 
ised that the full force of the 
law will be brought to bear on 
anyone convicted of 
vandalism. 

His statement followed a 
fire in the offices of the secular 
Citizens Rights Movement, 
which caused extensive 
damage. 

An anonymous caller 
claimed it had been started by

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JUNE 18 1986 


If the Government and the record companies 
get their way and impose a levy on blank audio 
tape perhaps this should be available on free 
prescription. 

After all, if you have to cough up more money 
because of lobbying by greedy record companies, 
there must be plenty of other fat cats waiting in 
the wings for their extra dollop of cream. 


A Tape Levy is wrong on moral and legal 
grounds. If it is imposed during the next session of 
Parliament it sets a ghastly precedent for the right- 
ing of any number of imagined wrongs. 

Don’t let it happen. Get the facts, and find out

\ Israel’s outgoing chief 
\ law officer accused 
) oyer hijack deaths leak 


A member of the Knesset 
has accused Mr Yitzhak 
i Zamir, the outgoing Attorney- 
\General. of telling the media 
that two Palestinian bus hi- 
jackers were lynched by mem- 
bers of the Shin Bet counter- 
intelligence agency on the 
express orders of Mr Avraham 
Shalom, the agency’s chief. 

The Knesset member, Mr 
Ehud Olmeru has written to 
Mr Shimon Peres, the Prime 
Minister, protesting that Mr 
Zamir has committed a griev- 
ous criminal offence and dam- 
aged the security of the state 
by releasing top-secret infor- 
mation obtained before he 
retired as Attorney<3eneral at 
the beginning of this month. 

The aim of the leaks, Mr 
Olmen said, was to force an 
inquiry into the affair. 

The Israeli media yesterday 
was full of reports from an 
anonymous ^senior judicial 
source" describing in some 
detail how the two Palestin- 
ians were severely beaten and 
then killed afler they were 
captured on a bus they had 
hijacked to Gaza in April 
1984. The stories all appeared 
afler a farewell party given by 
Mr Zamir to Israeli legal 
correspondents. 

The reports say that the 
Chief of Staff. General Moshe 
Levy, ordered that all four 


From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 

hijackers on board the bus 
should be killed when the 
Army stormed it Killing them 
in this way would have been 
legal. 

But only two were killed 
and the survivors were hand- 
ed over to Shin Bet. Rve 
agents then interrogated them 
and killed them, the stories 
say. having been ordered to do 
so by Mr Shalom. 

Information about this is 
known to have been given to 
MrZamirby three senior Shin 
Bet officers, Mr Reuviu 
Hazak. Mr Peleg Raddai and 
Mr Raff Malka. Mr Hazak is 
first said to have gone to Mr 
Peres to tell him about the way 
the men died and about a Shin 
Bet cover-up for two subse- 
quent inquiries. 

The Prime Minister, how- 
ever. is said to have dismissed 
these allegations, believing 
they were an effort to get rid of 
Mr Shalom and for Mr Hazak 
to take his place. 

The three then tried to see 
Mr Zamir but were refused 
permission for several weeks 
and h was only after the 
former Justice Minister, Mr 
Moshe Nissim. intervened 
that Mr Feres reluctantly gave 
his permission. 

In a secret session of the 
High Court on Friday Mr 


Malka is to lay a complaint 
against Mr Shalom ana Mr 
Peres on the ground that the 
Prime Minister himself tried 
to block investigations of the 
affair. 

These leaks, which have 
grown from a trickle to a 
torrent in the past wok. come 
just as the new Attorney- 
General. Mr Yosef Harish, is 
making up his mind how to 
continue the investigation 
into the hijacking and any 
subsequent cover-ups. 

In Mr Harish's view the 
facts surrounding the hijack- 
ing and deaths ofthetwo men 
have “been investigated 
enough. The continued re- 
hashing of the killings is 
harmful to the state and shows 
a lack of responsibility”. 

He is. however, concerned 
about the claims that there 
was a cover-up of what hap- 
pened which was approved by 
the highest levels of Shin Bet 
who deceived two official 
inquiries. By the end of this 
week be has promised to 
announce what kind of inves- 
tigation, if any, he will want to 
setup. 

Whatever their true source, 
the latest leaks have made it 
very difficult for Mr Harish to 
refuse some kind of 
investigation. 


Seoul gets 
a surprise 
from north 

From David Watts 
Tokyo 

The North Korean military 
has made an unprecedented 
approach to its southern coun- 
terpart suggesting a meeting to 
ease tension on the p eninsula. 

The suggestion was made in 
a letter from Mr O Jin U, the 
North Korean Minister of 
'Defence, to his southern oppo- 
site, Mr Lee Ki Back. Mr O 
suggested the two sides, to- 
gs*®* with the United Na- 
tions command, discuss the 
halting of both military exer- 
cises and tiie expansion of 
forces. 

It was the first time there 
had been such contact between 
the military establishments of 
the divided peninsula. 

The Sooth Korean Govern- 
ment said the "unpre- 
cedented” letter was “being 
closely scrutinized”. 

Mr O is rumoured to have 
been in favour of increased 
contacts for some time: per- 
haps to counter increased 
Soviet military influence in the 
north. 

In his letter he said: “If war 
comes to onr country it will be 
devastated and all of the 
people wOl face nuclear 
disaster.” 

The reason for the riming of 
the northern approach is nu- 
clear, bnt it may bea none-too- 
subtle reminder that it has the 
military power to disrupt 
South Korea's carefully laid 
plans for both the Asian 
Games in September and Oc- 
tober and the Olympic Games 
in 1988. 

The north has proposed a 
preliminary session between 
the two commands, which may 
take place at the trace village 
of Panmnnjom in 10 days. 
That meeting could lead to a 
meeting of senior military 
leaders next month. 

Mr O said the north was 
ready to listen to any sugges- 
tions from either the South 
Koreans or the Americans 
which may help alleviate 
tensions. 


Anti-Jewish tone 
returns in Egypt 


From Robert Fisk, Cairo 


Claims that the Holocaust 
in Nazi Europe was a myth 
and that Jews control Ameri- 
can banks and the media have 
resurfaced in the Egyptian 
press in a disturbing recur- 
rence of anti-Jewish sentiment 
here. 

Israel has in the past com- 
plained to President Mubarak 
about anti-Semitism in Cairo 
newspapers, and the Egyptian 
leader has taken steps to 
suppress offensive material 

But the latest examples — in 
the newspapers Al-Akhbar and 
Al-Gomhouria — have crept 
into print in editorials about 
the election of Dr Kurt Wald- 
heim as Austrian President 

Egyptians, like most Arab 
nations, regarded the Israeli 
allegations against Dr Wald- 
heim of complicity in war 
crimes as unwarranted Inter- 
ference in Austrian internal 
affairs. 

But in the state-owned Cai- 
ro daily Al-Gomhauria last 
week the columnist Mohamed 
al-Hayawan goes further than 
mere criticism, claiming that 
Israel “has always sought to 
capitalize on what it constant- 
ly describes as Nazi persecu- 
tion of the Jews. It has always 
sought to remind Europeans 
of these fictitious crimes”. 

The Israelis, Mr al-Hay- 
awan wrote, interfere in the 
internal affairs of Egypt — by 
criticizing its relations with 


the PLO — but “have never 
ceased to trumpet out Hitler’s 
intentions to liquidate the 
Jews, the main motive each 
time being to extend support 
for Israeli aims and ob- 
jectives”. 

On the same day, Al-Akhbar 
carried an editorial condemn 
ing the US for supporting 
Israel in its claims against Dr 
Waldheim and asking why it 
should wish to jeopardize its 
relations with Austria. 

“The fed . . .is that Zionist 
and Jewish organizations in 
America control the news 
media, financial establish- 
ments and commercial and 
industrial companies,” the par 
per said. 

Arabs often reject charges of 
anti-Semitism on the grounds 
that the phrase has been 
appropriated by Jews. Arabs, 
too, are Semites and they 
sometimes argue that it is just 
as anti-Semitic for Jews to 
criticize Arab Muslims. 

Yet most educated Arabs 
are well aware that the Nazi 
Holocaust was a terrible reali- 
ty and thus they also know 
bow offensive it is to the 
survivors — and to Jews in 
general - to suggest otherwise. 

Arabs are equally unhappy 
in acknowledging the support 
which Sheikh Amin al- 
Husseini, the Grand Mufii of 
Jerusalem, gave to tire Nazis 
during the Second World War.

Papandreou warns against Torkey links 

Stormy EEC summit looms 


From Richard Owen, Luxembourg 


This week's two-day meet- 
ing of EEC foreign ministers, 
which ended here yesterday, 
has left at least three conten- 
tious issues for EEC heads of 
government to deal with at 
their summit in The Hague in 
a week's time: the co-ordina- 
tion of sanctions against South 
Africa, the growing trade dis- 
pute with the US and a 
simmering row within the 
EEC over Greek objections to 
closer links between Turkey 
and the EEC. 

EEC officials said yesterday 
there was a glimmer of hope 
over Europe's trade conflict 
with Washington, which arises 
from America's complaints 
that it has lost agricultural 
markets in Europe because of 
EEC enlargement 

Washington has already 
taken largely symbolic action 
against EEC products over 
trade arrangements for Portu- 
gal which exclude American 
imports. Bui the US is threat- 
ening more substantia! action 
on July 1 aver the loss of 
markets in Spain for Ameri- 
can maize and sorghum. 
Washington says it will re- 
strict EEC exports of spirits, 
cheese, wine and vegetables. 

The July deadline immedi- 
ately follows The Hague sum- 
mit and coincides with the 
handover of the EEC presi- 
dency from The Netherlands 
to Britain. With France press- 
ing for instant and specific 


EEC retaliation, the foreign 
ministers drew up a list of 
American grain products 
against which the EEC will 
impose restrictions. 

But officials said Mr Willy 
de Clercq. the Commissioner 
for External Relations, would 
seek a negotiated solution 
before the July deadline, and 


Mr Papandreou: revival of 

EEC ties inadmissable. 
that even if America did go 
ahead the EEC would wait two 
weeks before responding. 

Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign Secretary, called on 
Washington to postpone the 
July deadline, warning that 
the risk of transatlantic com- 
petition degenerating into 
open trade warfare was “closer 
than it ought to be". 

There is less optimism over 


the prospects for agreement on 
sanctions against Pretoria by 
the time of the summit. 
Officials from the Twelve are 
urgently drawing up a list of 
possible measures. But even 
the most likely sanctions — a 
ban on South African food 
imports - is viewed sceptical- 
ly by Britain. Sir Geoffrey said 
before leaving for yesterday's 
Commons debate that a food 
ban would hit blacks em- 
ployed in South Africa's food 
industry rather than the Gov- 
ernment in Pretoria. 

Diplomats say tensions are 
also likely at the summit over 
Greek objections to plans to 
revive Turkey’s Association 
Agreement with the EEC, 
which lapsed in 1980 after 
martial law in Ankara. 

An Association Council is 
to be held in September, under 
the British presidency. Mr 
Andreas Papandreou. the 
Greek Prime Minister, this 
week warned fellow heads of 
government and M Jacques 
Delors. the Commission Pres- 
ident. that Ankara's “aggres- 
sion towards Greece” the 
oppressive nature of the Anka- 
ra Government and its "illegal I 
occupation of a sector ofl 
Cyprus" made any revival ofl 
EEC links with Turkey 
“inodmissable". 

Despite this warning the! 
foreign ministers appeared de- 
termined to go ahead with the 
September meeting.

Dutch dig up war 
traitor’s remains 


Rotterdam (Renter) — Po- 
lice dug up the remains of The 
Netherlands' most notorious 
war traitor yesterday and end- 
ed years of speculation that be 
had escaped abroad in 1946 
after a fake suicide. 

Examination of the remains 
confirmed that Christiaan 
Lindemans, a double agent 
who betrayed about 250 resis- 
tance, fighters to the Nazis, 
died and was buried here 40 ' 
years ago despite confusion in 
the official records. 

His bones were dug up from 
their grave in a Rotterdam 
cemetery at dawn behind a 
shield of tight security, with 
die traitor's surviving brother 
ami two daughters looking on. 

Belinda Thane, a former 
comrade-in-arms of Linde - 
nwns, had formally requested 


the exhumation after several 
historians suggested that the 
man who sent several of her 
Wartime companions to their 
deaths might have survived

The last doubt was removed 
when Mr Martin Voortman, 
the chief pathologist;' said: 
“As Ear as we are 'concerned 
there is no . doubt that this is 
the body of Mr lindemans.” 

Lindemans, a garage me- 
chanic whose massive build 
earned him the nickname 
“King Kong”, was a resistance 
hero until he switched sides to 
save the life of a captured 
brother. 

He had access to the highest 
levels of Dutch command in 
the final months of the war 
and was able to betray dozens 
of French, Belgian ami Dutch 
resistance cells.

Acid rain 
rift fails 
to deter 
Thatcher 

From Tony Ssunstag 
Oslo 

In barely a mouth in office. 
Norway's new Labour Gov- 
ernment has taken ihe British 
by surprise in at least one 
respect: an aggressive line on 
environmental issues which 
has already resulted in two 
strongly worded letters and 
caused speculation that a visit 
to Norway by Mrs Tbatcher 
might be cancelled before it 
was even announced. 

The proposed visit was 
finally confirmed by 10 
Downing Street on Monday. It 
wilt take place in the autumn, 
probably in September. 

Mrs Sissel Roenbeck, the 
new Minister for the Environ- 
ment, has lost no time in 
warning her British counter- 
part, Mr William Waldegrave, 
that the “softly, softly” ap- 
proach on vexatious issues, 
such as acid rain, taken by her 
Conservative predecessor is a 
thing of the past. 

Mrs Roenbeck signalled the 
start of her offensive ai the 
beginning of this month in her 
introductory letter to Mr 
Waldegrave — normally an 
anodyne document — express- 1 
ing Norway’s “very strong 
concern” over plans for a fast 
reactor plant at Dounreay. 

Three days later, on World 
Environment Day, she fired a 
second round. This time, she 
accused the British Govern- 
ment of “provocation against ; 
international society” because j 
of its failure to install anti- 
pollution equipment at the 
new Drax B coal-fired power 
station in Yorkshire. 

The office of the Norwegian 
Prime Minister, Mrs Gro Har- 
lem Brundtiand. confirmed, 
however, that it had been in 
touch with the British Embas- 
sy here three weeks ago to 
confirm that the visit was still 
on, despite the collapse of the 
Conservative administration 
which issued the original invi- 
tation in ApriL

Students clash 
with police as 
national strike 
looms in Chile 

From Lake Sagaris, Santiago 


Students at universities 
throughout Chile began boy- 
cotting classes and assemblies 
and holding marches this 
week as part of a national 
student strike against military 
rule. . . , 

The first serious incident 
was on Monday when bus- 
loads of heavily-armed riot 
police blocked access to the 
University of Chile law facul- 
ty. firing grapeshot and tear- 
gas bombs into the building in 
an attempt to dislodge a 
peaceful assembly of students. 

Later, police supported by 
soldiers armed with automatic 
weapons raided several cam- 
puses of the University of 
Chile and the Metropolitan 
University, arresting more 
ihan 100 people, among them 
seven professors. 

At the time or the 1973 
military coup, thousands of 
students were expelled and 
professors purged. More re- 
cently. universities have been 
restructured to conform to the 
junta’s free-enterprise 
philosophy. 

During the week, students 
have presented petitions to 
faculty officials and held sev- 
eral marches around campus- 
es. preparing the way for a 
two-day national strike in July 
against the regime, led by 
Chile's largest opposition co- 
alition. the National .Assembly 
of Civil Society 


On Monday, spokesmen for 
the National Association of 
Lorry Owners, which paved 
the way for the coup through 
strikes' and other actions, 
threatened to block highways 
with lorries if the junta did not 
respond to the National 
Assembly’s demands. 

• Bomb death: One man was 
killed and seven people were 
wounded when a bomb de- 
stroyed a carriage of an under- 
ground train yesterday as it 
left a Santiago station {Reuter 
reports). 

The bomb went ofF just 
before the morning rush hour 
at the Tobalaba station in the 
heart of Santiago’s fashionable 
suburbs. 

Ten minutes earlier, a bomb 
had exploded in the Los 
Heroes station in the city 
centre, causing minor damage. 

Service was suspended 
along one stretch of the 
Tobalaba line. Huge traffic 
jams built up on main roads to 
the city centre, compounded 
b> flooding after 24 hours of 
torrential rains. 

No one claimed responsibil- 
ity for the attack. Leftist 
guerrilla groups have admit- 
ted sabotage bombings and 
attacks on security forces in 
the past but have generally 
avoided indiscriminate bomb- 
mot in mihlic.

prisoners 
delayed 
by mix-up 

From Keith Dalton 
Manila 

The Philippines Govern- 
ment is committed to freeing 
all political prisoners but 
problems la distinguishing 
them from common criminals 
are hampering their release, 
the Justice Minister, Mr 
Neptali Gonzales, said 


Tramped up criminal 
charges were often used to jafl 
opponents of former President 
Marcos and these prisoners, 
mostly ia civilian jails, were 
not among the 519 political 
detainees freed from military 
stockades by the Government 
of President Aquino, he said. 

The Church-backed Task 
Force Detainees says 5% 
political prisoners are de- 
tained in town an d cit y jails 
throughout the country. 

The Justice Ministry claims 

to have no official record of the 

number of political detainees 
but admits many prisoners 
have been detained for more 
than five years, well beyond 
the minimum jail sentence, 
and cannot be released on 
parole because records have 
been last.

Chittagong 
tribesmen 
in raid 
on settlers 

From Ahmed Fazl 
Dhaka 

The Bangladesh .Army was 
called out at the weekend to 
quell clashes between Bud- 
dhist Cbakma tribesmen and 
Muslim Bengali settlers. Five 
people were killed and 12 
wounded in Bangladesh's 
troubled south-eastern Chitta- 
gong hill tracts. 

Troops were rushed to a 
Bengali hamlet about 15 miles 
from the township of 
Dighinals in the region's 
Khagracbari district after 
armed tribesmen attacked, 
killing three Bengalis. 

Officials contacted by tele- 
phone said the Bengalis later 
launched a revenge attack on a 
neighbouring village, hacking 
iwo people to death. 

They said calm was restored 
after the Army took up posi- 
tions around the affected 
villages. 

Authorities saio more than 
80 Bengalis had been killed in 
attacks by separatist tribal 
guerrillas belonging to the 
outlawed Shanti Bahini (peace 
force) in the past two months 
and about 6.000 tribals had 
crossed into the neighbouring 
Indian state of Tripura during 
a security operation to flush 
out insurgents. 

The rebellion m the hills 
started in 1976 after dissident 
Cbakma and Manna tribes- 
men opposed the resettlement 
of Muslim Bengali farmers on 
tribal lands. More than 10.000 
regular troops have since been 
fighting a jungle war against 
the guerrillas.

Eliciting consent 
defence in rape 


Regina v Cox (David) 

Before Lord Lane. Lord Chief 
Justice. Mr Justice McCowan 
and Mr Justice Rose 
[Judgment given June 1 7] 

The difficulties involved in 
section 2 of the Sexual Offences 
(Amendment) Act 1976 were 
acknowledged by Lord Lane. 
Lord Chief Justice, when 
delivering the judgment of the 
Court of Appeal allowing an. 
appeal by David Cox. aged 24. 
of Whitehead. Oldbury, against 
his conviction at Dudley .Crown 
Court (Judge Evans. QC and a 
jury) of rape of a complainant 
aged 20. 

Section 2 provides: '“If at a 
trial any person is . . . charged 
with a rape offence to which he 
pleads not guilty, then, except 
with the leave of the judge, no 
evidence and no question in 
cross-examination shall be ad- 
duced or asked at the trial, by or 
on behalf of any defendant at 
the trial, about any experience 
of a complainant with a person 
other than that defendant. 

“(2) ... the judge shall rive 
leave if and only if be is satisfied 
that it would be unfair to that 
defendant to refuse to allow the. 
evidence to be adduced or the 
question to be asked.” 

Mr Derek Stanley, assigned 
by the Registrar of Criminal 
Appeals, for the appellant: Mr 
Christopher Hotten for the 
Crown. 

The LORD CHIEF JUSTICE 
said that sexual intercourse 
between the appellant and the 
compbtinam took place during a 
night while her boyfriend who 
Jived with her was detained 
overnight by the police. 

The appellant left the flat at 
about 8 am and she was rejoined 
by her boyfriend. Not until 
about 11.30 pm did she allege 
that she had been raped by the 
appellant. Not until 4 am the 
next day was he arrested by the 
police and questioned. 

The defence was that she 
consented. The appellant 
wished to cross-examine her and 
doubtless adduce evidence 
about an earlier occasion. 

It involved that she, while her 
boyfriend was away, had had 
sexual intercourse with another 
man. “Steven". He. somewhat 
ungallantly. told her boyfriend 
what had happened The boy- 
friend was enraged and tackled 
the complainant about it. 
whereupon she said that, she had . 
been raped by Steven. 

A proof of evidence from 
Steven was available to the 


appellant. In it Steven asserted 
that sexual intercourse was with 
her consent, he bad told the 
boyfriend about it. he (Steven) 
bad heard that he was being 
accused of rape by the com- 
plainant. had gone round to see 
the boyfriend and complainant 
together and. in the boyfriend’s 
presence, the complainant had 
admitted that she had accused 
Steven of rape and that the 
accusation was false. 

The trial judge ruled against 
the application to question her 
about that occasion. 

The proper approach — his 
Lordship acknowledged that it 
was a difficult matter for any 
judge to decide in any particular 
case — was whether it would be 
unfair to exclude such cross- 
examination. 

In R r Viola ([1982] I WLR 
1 138. 1443) the court had said: 

“Questions . . . going simply 
to credit will seldom be allowed 
... On the other hand if the 
questions are relevant to an 
issue in the trial . . . for instance, 
relevant to the issue of consent 
. . . they are likely to be admit- 
ted. because to exclude a rele- 
vant question on an issue in the 
trial as the trial is being run will 
usually mean that the jury are 
being prevented from hearing 
something which, if they did 
hear it might cause them to 
change their minds about the 
evidence given by the com- 
plainant 

“But we are very far from 

laying down any hard and fast 
rule.". 

The effect of the proposed 
questions and evidence was to 
indicate that it was not so much 
the sexual intercourse with Ste- 
ven which was of importance 
■ but what the complainant had 
said about it afterwards. That 
really was the subject of the 
application. 

The judge had indicated a line 
of questioning falling short of 
the questions which he had 
ruled against However, if the 
defence was to be prevented 
from putting to the complainant 
the real nub of the Steven 
incident the effect of the cross- 
examination would be largely 
lost 

Their Lordships had con- 
cluded that to slop the question- 
ing short of that point was unfair 
to the appellant 
The • conviction would be 
quashed.

SPECTRUM 


A new heart 
for the 


divided city 


One man’s vision and the faith to see it through won for 
Londonderry The Times/RIBA Community Enterprise 
Scheme’s top award last week. Richard Ford reports 


Londonderry was where it all began 17 
long years ago. It is a city linked 
irrevocably with gerrymandering and 
violence, where on either side of the 
steep banks of the River Foyle the 
emotions and fears of two cultures and 
identities clashed like warring tribes. A 
city with two names, each more than 
enough to indicate from which side of 
the sectarian divide its people are from. 

The troubles, as they are euphemisti- 
cally called, have left their scars on its 
people, its buildings and demography. 
Three hundred years of ill-feeling and 
spilt blood between Protestant and 
Roman Catholic have culminated in a 
city virtually divided by the river flowing 
in Its midst 

Blitzed by the bombers time and time 
again, blighted by economic depression 
and some of the highest unemployment 
in the United Kingdom, the spirit of its 
people and their pride in their communi- 
ty has not been broken. “Sure it's 
nothing more than an overblown village. 
Everybody knows everybody else and 
there’s a tremendous attachment to the 
place”, said one young woman. 

Now. having taken just about every- 
thing that could be thrown at it, a new 
spirit is abroad in the city — the spirit 
that proclaims “we can do it, we will 
show the world”. 

In .their first season in the League of 
Ireland the football dub has attracted up 
to 1 2,000 supporters to each home game, 
astonishing both the club and the 
League. And in the walled dty itself the 


Derry Inner City project last week won 
the top award in The 77mes/Royal 
Institute of British Architects Communi- 
ty Enterprise Scheme. 

Providing training, jobs and interests 
to hundreds who would otherwise be on 
the dole, it is an urban renewal 
programme showing what men driven by 
a dream for their own community can 
achieve by persistence and all-round 
effort. It involves church, commerce and 
government departments but, most im- 
portant. it involves the people 
themselves. 

Scrawled on a wall near the project's 
office are the words “keep Derry udy — 
Brits out”. Inside, the scheme's driving 
force and visionary relishes the irony 
that he. an uncompromising Republican, 
longing for the day when Britain packs 
its bags, shook hands with the Prince of 
Wales on receiving the award. Affection- 
ately known as “Paddy Bogside” or 
“King of the Bog”, Paddy Doherty, aged 
60. smiled at the thought before adding 
“I had no problem. My line is as long as 
his line. The O'Dohehys were the last 
family who with a chieftain at their head 
fought the British.” 

He has first-hand knowledge of the 
effects of the troubles but has refused to 
be beaten by them. Early on he was 
prominent in the Republican Bogside, 
organizing a community when the area 
was a no-go district. One son is in prison, 
convicted on the word of an informer of 
membership of an illegal paramilitary 
organization; and last year a son-in-law 







Award winners: Paddy Doherty, creating the space for comnuHiities to come together; and some of his workers on a project 


was shot dead by the Provisional IRA for 
being an alleged informer. “It's very 
painful”, he says. 

Outside his office there is the ever 
present hum of activity. In one room 
young men and women operate ma- 
chines to do the trust's accounts; by the 
door a fair-haired youth acts as security 
man; and another jokes with three 
friends as he hammers away a 
doorframe. Stephen FrieL a 24-year-old 
married man with a child of 16 months, 
has worked as a carpenter on the project 
for seven months after one and a naif 
years on the dole. “Anything is better 
than lying around”, he says. “At the start 
nobody wanted to come on this job but 
now the whole town is looking to get in.” 

In the yard below two men mix cement 
and lay a kerb while two more clamber 
up scaffolding to fix a window in a 
building being renovated. Alfie John- 
ston. aged 20. is another who joined the 
project immediately he left school with 


no qualifications and little prospect of a 
job. In a community workshop he tried 
his hand at carpentry, plumbing and 
finally plastering, in which he specialized 
until fully trained. 

He says with evident pride that be is 
now a qualified plasterer: “It's given me 
a steady job and wage. I'm pleased that 
we have shown that we can make it with 
the rest of them. If I. wasn't here I would 
be doing nothing.” 

The door to Paddy’s office is constant- 
ly opening with people seeking his advice 
and guidance and be is nothing if 
forthright, calling in a foreman to tell 
him one building must open within a 
matter of weeks as he has organized a 
celebration for visiting Americans whom 
he hopes to persuade to part with cash. 

A carpenter by trade and a father of 1 3, 
his visions have transformed and re- 
stored part of the dty, providing work 
for SOI people on the Action for 
Community Employment Scheme for 


the long-term unemployed and the 
Youth Training Programme for younger 
people needing training and skills. 

He learnt the lessons of local action in 
the early 1960s, when he set up a Credit 
Union as a form of community banking, 
and through his role in the Bogside. “I 
want people to take charge of their own 
areas, to be responsible for house repairs, 
looking after the elderly, and their own 
environment. If governments trusted us 
more we could do iL” 

Almost 10 years ago he began using 
unemployed youth to restore derelict 
buildings. His theory: “People only grow 
through the willing acceptance of respon- 
sibility. That is the centrepiece of our 
philosophy. Shift responsibility on to 
ordinary people. I think the Prince is 
very much into that.” 

Success in restoring a disused school 
(about to become an art centre) tempted 
Paddy to be more ambitious and on a 
walk around the dty he earmarked 


bombed-out buildings and others aban- 
doned and decaying for his work. An 
initial fund-raising exercise got £37,000 
to purchase two buildings and a typical 
mixture of cy cling, pleading and grants 
from the local council to government 
departments has brought expansion at an 
unprecedented speed. Banks parted with 
£250,000 and a branch of the World 
Coundl for Churches gave £152,000 
after being persuaded that the dty 
deserved support because it was really a 
Third World area. 


‘I want people to be 
responsible for looking 
after the elderly and 
their own environment. 
If governments trusted 
us more we could do it 9 

Paddy Doherty 


The trust has an annual turnover of 
£2m; eight buildings have been restored: 
three are being worked on, including one 
restored and then damaged in a Provi- 
sional IRA bomb attack; and a further 1 1 
are on the drawing board. 

In Londonderry the restored buildings 
hum to the activity of young people 
being trained in carpentry, plumbing, 
electrical work, computers, jewellery- 
making and graphics. Others restored by 
youngsters learning their skills as they go 
have been leased to government depart- 
ments. and three have been rented as 
shops in the city centre. One of the great 
successes was an art exhibition by six 
“lough kids" who bad been taught an for 
five months. 

In a city as divided as Londonderry 
the overwhelming majority involved in 
the project are nationalist Many Protes- 
tants privately admire the quality of the 
work, but would be uneasy working in 
the predominately nationalist city cen- 
tre; others are suspicious of involvement 
with something that has a Republican as 
its motivating force. 

Paddy say’s: “If Northern Ireland is to 
achieve anything it will be through the 
two traditions coming together. But 
don't make me out as some kind of patsy 
trying to bring both communities togeth- 
er. My job is to create the space where it 
can happen. Naturally, if at alL At the 
moment we're showing die world and 
leading the way with community action 
which is doing something for the morale 
of everyone.” 


The serious business of 87th Police Precinct, Isola 


Last month Newsweek maga- 
zine voted Ed McBain’s Ice 
one of the 10 best crime novels 
of the century. He was one of 
only two living writers on the 
list The choice of that novel as 
his finest wonM probably not 
be shared by most critics; bat 
bis place among die greats of 
the genre would not be 
questioned. 

Just as Dashiell Hammett 
and Raymond Chandler domi- 
nated the fictional world of the 
private eye, so McBain for the 
past 30 years has been the 
master of the novel in which 
police procedure plays die 
central part. Television series 
like Hitt Street Blues are 
direct descendants, though 
mention of that series annoys 
McBain. He is careful not to 
say that he believes it to be a 
direct crib, hot he speaks of it 
with heavy irony as 
‘‘borrowing” his ideas. 

Like Sherlock Holmes's 
Baker Street, McBain's 87th 
Police Precinct in the fictional 
city of Isola has assumed a 
cosy familiarity with millions 
of readers in countless conn- 


tries. Over 39 novels and 
hundreds of passing police 
characters. Detective Steve 
Carefla has emerged as the 
most important and sympa- 
thetic single figure. “I actually 
killed Carella in my third 
book, but my agent and pub- 
lisher complained. I had to 
take the manuscript back and 
ressurect him”, McBain re- 
calls. 

Ed McBain is a pseudonym 
of novelist Evan Hauler. Be- 
tween the two of them they 
have written more than 60 
books, and Hunter doubles as 
a screen writer (Hitchcock's 
The Birds is among his cred- 
its). McBain has also pub- 
lished five prime novels 
featuring Florida attorney 
Matthew Hope, and his latest 
work Another Part of the City , 
published tomorrow (Hamish 
Hamilton, £9.95) introduces 
New York's Fifth Precinct. 

McBain likes and admires 
cops. “They are underpaid, 
overworked and do a job that's 
enormously stressful, under a 
great deal of psychological 



Ed McBain: Tve never let myself get stale’’ 


pressure. They deal with a side 
6f society with which the 
average citizen would not want 
to come into contact, and they 
do it 24 boors a day. 

“They become policemen 
because of a high sense of 
idealism. Some drop oat or 
become over-cynical or even 
dishonest. But I'm convinced 
that most iff them want to be 
the good gnys getting the bad 
gays.” 

_ Occasionally McBain's fic- 
tional cops are a little too 


pleasant and sympathetic to be 
totally convincing. But that is 
dearly what his pnblic wants. 
“What appeals to my readers 
is the humanity of the cops. 
They are less concerned with 
who solves the crime and who 
did it than with human things 
like whether the detective b 
ever going to find happiness 
with his girL They want to be 
sure that Carella is never 
going to cheat on his wife. 
Once when in the coarse of 
duty Carella had to kiss 


another woman I received 
indignant letters.” 

His pnblic have also sur- 
prisingly taken to his frequent 
villain, known only as the Deaf 
Man, who regularly and with 
increasing ririonsness makes 
fools of the police and is never 
captured. “I've been accused, 
as Evan Hunter, of. writing 
very moral stories. I think I 
agree, and its also true of my 
87th Precinct books.' Trans- 
gressors and sinners almost 
always get punished. At 
present the Deaf Man is an 
exception. I don't quite know 
what to do with him. He's also 
very difficult to write, because 
he’s brilliant and I'm not So I 
have to work very hard.” 

McBain has always taken 
his writing seriously. Now a 
young-looking 59, he grew up 
poor, in New York's Italian 
Harlem, the son of a postman. 
Then came art college, a stint 
in the navy and the decision to 
become a writer, accompanied 
by taki n g on the name of Evan 
Hunter instead of his original 
long Italian one. 

He seems to regret adopting 


the McBain pseudonym. “The 
crime writer was not held in 
high regard when I started 
writing, and as 1 had achieved 
some success as a “serious” 
writer on social themes with 
The Blackboard Jungle, I took 
on McBain for my 87th Pre- 
cinct books. Bat I don't regard 
my McBain. as less serious 
than my Evan Hunter.” 

The Blackboard Jungle his 
first best-seller, was an angry 
indictment of the New York 
schools system, provoked by a 
few months teaching which he 
did (and hated) while waiting 
for his . break as a writer. 

McBain claims that he's a 
happy man. “I'm doing exactly 
what I want to do. I enjoy 
writing enormously and I've 
never let myself get stale.' De 
oof a happy marriage (his 
second) and three sons (by his 
first) of whom I'm proud. Tve 
got two lovely homes in Con- 
necticut and Florida. And 
when I need some sunshine I 
can always come to England. 
What more can a guy want?”

Frank Atkinson was nine 
when he found the fossil of a

have grown somewhat, both 
in size and scope — at one time 
his collection was so vast it 
filled the entire headquarters 
and parade ground of the 
former Durham Light Infan- 
try while awaiting a perma- 
nent home. 

Now it forms the basis of 
the 264-acre Beamish open air 
museum in County Durham, 
whose farm, mine and work- 
ing trams and steam trains re- 
create an authentic slice of the 
North-east’s past. The build- 
ings alone are valued at £7 
million and their contents at 
several millions more. 

The award to Beamish as 
the 1986 National Heritage 
Museum of the Year is testi- 
mony to the vision of Frank 
Atkinson, the museum's di- 
rector. Now aged 6Z and still a 
self-confessed inveterate col- 
lector, he first conceived the 
idea of an open-air museum 
for this country while visiting 
a similar project in Scandina- 
via in 1952. He first put the 
suggestion to local councillors 

in 1958. 

Another 12 years of political 
wrangling arid financial uncer- 
tainty passed, however, before 
work finally began on convert- 
ing the former regional coal 
board headquarters at 
Beamish. - ■ 

The museum's success is 
now evidenL It employs .200 
staff, attracts 2S0.000 visitors 
a- year and generates enough' 
income- to - meet two thirds of 
its annual £l*s million expen- 
diture. The rest comes from 
nine local councils. 

The museum includes a 
Victorian form, an old drift 
mine, miners' cottages, work- 
ing trams and its own railway 
station and steam locomo- 
tives. But the latest and per- 
haps most popular 
development is the re-creation 
of a town street from the 
1920s.

houses were demolished on a 
site in Gateshead and rebuilt 
at Beamish brick by brick, as 
was the old Sun .Inn, trans- 
ported from Bishop Auckland, 
and the former Co-operative 
store from the pit village of 
Annfield Plain, near Consen. 

The street its house interi- 
ors and packed shelves at the 
Co-op. ail- uncannily accurate 
in detail, daily revive memo-' 
ries for the elderly visitors and 
fascinate today's children, 
who live in more complicated 
times. 

Work on Beamish is not' yet 
complete, with a £1 million 
project under way to provide 
parking facilities for 1 .000 cars 
apd a new visitors’ centre 
being constructed from an 
18th-cetuury stable block. 

Mr Atkinson lives in the 
vijlage; of Ovingham. 30- 
minutes' drive away, in a 


“ iu 


former vicarage that dates 
back in parts to the 14th 
century, what does the award 
mean to him? 

“It may sound cfichgd, but 
it is the satisfying climax to a 
lifetime's work. It is im- 
mensely satisfying to stand on 
the high ground at Beamish, 
see the locomotives in steam, 
the trams moving along the 
town street and thousands of 
people enjoying themselves. 

“I am a Yorkshireman by 
birth and I had to be pig- 
headed to achieve ail this. In 
the early days it almost folded 
before it started because of 
political differences between 
all the different councils.” 

He believes it is important 
to preserve aspects of North- 
east life before they disappear 
altogether. For instance, he 
plans a purpose-built colliery 
spoil heap on the site because 
today's children have often 
never seen one, simply be- 
cause the heaps have -been 
landscaped and grassed over 
for environmental reasons. 

The exhibits at Beamish are 
a reminder of the spirit and 
the character that have en- 
abled the people of the North- 
east to endure hard times 
economically and still come 
through as a community. 

The museum is not just 
about preserving buildings 
and machinery, however. 
When Mr Atkinson heard that 
a famous breed of local cattle, 
die Durham Short Horn, was 
in danger of dying out, he set 
about creating his own herd at 
Beamish, not to become a rare 
breed centre but because the 
cattle were as much an ele- 
ment of the rmion's history as 
the coal-mines and the engi- 
neering works are. 

As part of the award Mr 
Atkinson receives £2.000 as 
museum director to spend as 
he wishes. In the scale of 
things at Beamish it is but a 
small amount He intends to 
put it towards the cost of 
publishing a book on the 
museum's large collection of 
quilts.

r.l r..„ jj-j.. 


To love, honour 


and share 


An increasing number 
of couples are 
willing to share the 
household chores, but 
as Alison Miller 
discovers, equality 
is nowhere near as 
widespread as many 
would have us believe 

S ome people say that you can 
tell as much about a marriage 
by wbo-does-what as by any- 
thing either partner says. 
Domestic labour is part of 
the lottery of married life -and a 
means by which many feelings are 
expressed. 

The most recent figures from a 
1981 survey by Market & Opinion 
Research International (MORI) on 
the division of domestic labour 
suggest that women are not exploit- 
ing a greater willingness among' men 
to share the chores, and that it is not 
until retirement that any real mea- 
sure of equality emerges. 

It is a fact demonstrated in the 
1986 edition of Social Trends^ 
produced by the Central Statistical 
Office and published by Her 
Majesty's Stationery Office. Eleven, 
per cent more women do the 
washing and ironing than need to; 16 
per cent could have help with 
cooking the evening meal and 19 per 
cent with the shopping. 

Of married couples polled, 64 per 
cent say washing-up should be 
shared m the evening. 62 per cent are 
for sharing the shopping, and 58 per 
cent would like to share the organiza- 
tion of household money and bills. 

Eighty-three per cent say that 
repairs of household equipment are 
carried out by men — and 79 per cent 
tbat.they should be. Eighty-eight per 
cent of married women still do ad the 
washing and ironing, 77 per cent 
cook the evening meal and 72 per 
cent do ail the cleaning. 

The report says that “for each 
'household task, the proportion of 
couples where the task is undertaken 
mainly by the woman is always 
higher than the people concerned 
think it should be . . . one aspect 
not obvious from the table is the 
tendency for married men to over- 
state the extent to which they shared 
the housework.” 

A hundred years ago, division of 
labour in the home was a question of 
whether the wife was mistress of the ■ 
house or a housewife: The functions - 
of the mistress, Mrs Beeton wrote, 
“resemble those of the general of an 
army or the manager of a great 
business concern”. 

The terra housewife “seems more 
fittingly applied to those who per- 
sonally conduct their domestic af- 
fairs than to others who govern with 
the assistance of a large staff of well- 
trained servants". Now the question 
is not so much which type of 
housekeeper you are, but what kind 
of relationship is shown by who does . 
what The Times decided to contrast 
two generations of married couples 
in one family and then looked at how 
thefr attitudes compared with the 
findings of the poBsters. 

Bruce Aitken, aged 58, is the son of 
a former RAF Officer. Ed u c ate d at 
Sherborne, be won an exhibition to 
Cambridge where, he says, “unfortu- 
nately I met a girl at Girton and we 
got on ail right”. The gni, Anna, the ; 
daughter of a suffragette, was reading 
moral philosophy. She is now . 
Bruce’s wife. 

She says: “My mother was so 
insistent about brother and sister 
being equal that I had a fearfully 
expensive education — I got married 
at 24 and had four children by the 
time I was 32. It wasn’t until I was 45 
that 1 started getting a conscience 
and felt 1 had to do something about 
it”.

Bruce and Anna Aitken: a case of the breadwinner male and the domestic wife 

‘Brude does nothing about the house except Hoovering. 
He doesn’t iron or wash up and certainly can’t cook’ 


Anna — “bom of the British Raj” 
— settled into the expatriate life of 
gin-and-pink, house servants and 
local ayahs to look after the children. 
“I never did a thing, and I have 
never washed a floor” When their 
eldest child was eight the family 
moved back to England so that they 
could get on with schooling. Bruce 
went into industry, winding up at the 
Department of Economic Affairs for 
four years. 

“The thing gradually folded”, he 
says, "but fortunately I knew a 
stockbroker. It was 1971. At that 
time you were paid a very small 
salary and a huge bonus, which was 
all very well, but in 1974, when the 
market collapsed, Thad four children 
to keep on £3,000 a year and no 
bonus”. 

He took up where he had left off - 
as a company secretary in the Far : 
East, and joined a firm of chartered 
accountants which were subsequent- 
ly taken over by Touche Ross. “I 
have ended up where my son Robert 


.began. I'm probably earning a lot less 
now than he is and doing more work 
than he’s ever done, but it doesn't 
worry me. The partners I have 
known for 20 years are now knocking 
at my door saying ‘What’s Robert 
doing? Can we ask him round to 
lunch? and all this sort of rhubarb”. 


T oday the couple live in a 
village near Dartford, 
Rent, with Anna's elderly 
father in a house at the end 
of the garden. She has 
trained as a nurse and works part- 
time in an ophthalmic ward at St 
Mary’s Hospital Sidcup. 

Their day starts with Anna's alarm 
going off at 5.15am. “I get up. feed 
my quails, my doves,, have a bath 
and finally wake up Brucie. I push 
him off to work — we have two cars 
so he takes his. I’ve never made 
breakfast for anyone in my life. 
Bruce has coffee from his tea-making 
machine. I’ve always believed in 
everyone looking after themselves. 


Brude does nothing round the house 
except Hoovering — he doesn't iron, 
he doesn't wash and he certainly 
can't cook. I just couldn't do without- 
Doris, our daily. She cleans the 
silver, does the windows, and the 
Hoovering when Brucie’s not there. 
She makes the beds with me and she 
cleans up the dog’s mess. 

“Bruce can't dean the bath and 
never hangs anything out. He 
doesn't feed the quails. Doris and I 
spend our time picking things up 
after him. When he’s having a male 
bridge four, I do all their sandwiches 
before 1 go off to work and this is 
where it is so unfair — having to put 
his beer out. But when I give 
barbecue parties for the staff on my 
ward, Bruce is wonderful and every- 
one adores him, so it does balance 
out. The truth is I'd collapse 
completely without Doris.” 

Bruce says: “The first thing we 
bought when we came back from 
Malaya wasn't a bed but a dishwash- 
er. A lot of people in this country 


would never think that was the main 
priority, but it was and we've had 
one ever since. I do all the loading 
and unloading and filling it with 
powder - in other words I do all the 
washing-up. I can make boiled eggs 
andpoachoi eggs. I do all the heavy 
stuff - things where she says Til 
leave that to you*. 

“ I do all the gardening, not only 
for me but for her father who lives 
next door. I've had to build her five 
ponds, and what does she do but buy 
100 fish which have been breakfast 
for the heron. 1 walk the dogs. And 
I’ll lay the table for a dinner party, 
dear away, do the coffee — and all 
the washing-up." 

Robert Aitken, their second child, 
is 30 and riding the “big bang” in the 
City. He lives with Kathy, whom he 
married eight months ago, in a 
basement flat in Pimlico. Educated 
at Tonbridge. Kent, Robert did his 
foundation course in accountancy at 
the City of London Polytechnic 
before training at Touche Ross, 
where he met Kathy, who had read 
agricultural botany at Reading. 

After secondment to a firm of 
stockbrokers, he joined Henderson 
Crosthwaite. “After 18 months they 
asked me to stay and last year 1 
became a partner. Now we’re being 
taken over by Guinness Mahon, the 
merchant bankers. In the old days, 
having become a partner would have 
been the end of the story. Now we’re 
going into a corporate structure and 
heaven knows where it will end up. 
Ultimately, the ambitious ones will 
aim for chairmanship of the whole 
Guinness Peat Group.” 

K athy. 28. who did accoun- 
tancy after her botany, is 
a treasury analyst at .a 
firm of market research- 
ers in the pharmaceutical 
industry. They sleep with separate 
alarm clocks. Robert says: “I get up 
early to join a partner on the drive to 
work. Kathy gets up later and takes 
the Tube. We don't have breakfast 
but quite often we'll ring each other 
in the day to see who is getting the 
food. We share the cooking — die'll 
do two meals and I'll do two. We 
wash up together next day.” 

Kathy says: “Usually we eat out or 
have a take-away. Sometimes I'll 
shop late round the comer on the 
way home. We have two cars but 
neither of us uses them in the week. 
Since we married, money hasn't 
been tight Robert pays our joint 
mortgage. I plan holidays and do 
anything mundane. He'll ring me up 
at work and get me to see that the 
central heating is fixed. He doesn't 
do the Hoovering, or clean the bath 
out but he'll iron his shirt and we’ll 
go to the launderette together.” They 
don't have a joint bank account and 
they share the domestic bills. 

Although the lifestyles in two 
generations of the same family are 
different, all are agreed that it should 
be the woman who looks after the 
children when they are sick, and that 
family discipline should be shared 
equally, as should gardening and 
paying the bills. 

where Bruce and Anna agree that 
washing, ironing, cleaning and shop- 
ping should be done by Anna, the 
younger Aitkens say they should be 
shared equally, as should household 
repairs, which the parents say is 
Bruce's job. 

Anna believes that the evening 
meal should be her responsibility 
and so. loo. should domestic finance. 
Her husband, son and daughter-in- 
law all say they should be shared. 
Only Kathy says that she should do 
the cleaning. 

All of which tends to suggest that 
young couples without children are 
disposed to help each other in many 
ways — and that older working 
couples find it easier to hold on to 
old habits than to let them go. The 
vast majority of all people polled by 
MORI and the Central Statistical 
Office are still stuck with stereotype 
marriages — and presumably with 
children — where the man is the 
main breadwinner and the wife looks 
after the home.

Rattled by rail 


Killing off pride 
and perfection 


^ I feel a bit like Jonah, 

ff casting doom and 
shipwreck on materni- 
ty homes. Every time I 
have a baby they seem 
to close the hospital down. 
The first time was in London, 
in 1982; I gave birth at a 
splendid titde institution 
called the British Hospital for 
Mothers and Babies, in 
Woolwich. 

It was quite famous, in its 
day; for 77 years midwives 
trained there and moved on to 
hospitals all over the country 
and the world, notably to the 
Missions. I have yet to meet 
any group of middle-aged 
in id wives among whom the 
name of the good old British 
did not raise an affectionate 
smile. 

It was, admittedly, a worn 
and battered sort of place: 
after the birth I was bundled 
into a wheelchair, baby in 
arms, and covered in a mack- 
intosh to be poshed across an 
open drive to the post-natal 
"House of the Star”. Primi- 
tive, they say, apologetically; 
but the midwife and the porter 
wbo took us on that dawn ride 
through the rain were infi- 
nitely solicitous of me and my 
new son. and a glimpse of the 
warm, flowery little chapel as 
we bowled past it was worth 
any amount of new paint and 
designer-tiling in a modern 
hospital. 

We mothers loved the Brit- 
ish; we wrote our babies* 
names in its ancient Birthday 
Book and paid oar subscrip- 
tions with pride; we were 
gratefnl for its smallness and 
intimacy and for the sense of 
seven decades’ dedication to 
maternity. 

But they closed the British 
all the same. Statistics, slide- 
rule predictions and centralist 
theories converged upon it, 
and since July 1984 there 
have been no babies in the 
wards and no flowers in the 
chapeL 

And then I bad a baby here, 
in Suffolk. She was born in 
the amiable but hurried atmo- 
sphere of the huge maternity 
block in Ipswich, and moved 
after a day to a delightful 
place called the Phyllis Me- 
morial Maternity Home. It 
serves the long, straggling 
coastal strip, enabling post- 
natal mothers to be visited 
more easily by their families 
in this rural area. 

Infinitely reassuring 
old-fashioned nursing 

It was founded in 1929 by a 
wealthy family in memory of 
a daughter who died in child- 
birth. The NHS took it over, 
and has run it for half a 
century as a snperb maternity 
borne, doing fewer and fewer 
deliveries but concentrating 
on the vital and underrated 
work of getting new mothers 
happy and fit to go home after 
their week’s rest 

At the Phyllis, as at the old 
British, mothers and babies 
are never rushed or forced 
into routines, never have to be 
ignored in favour of acute 
cases at the other end of the 
block; they are glowingly 
important, cared for and re- 
membered long afterwards by 
the staff. 

They come back and ran 
fetes, and clnb together to bay 
new chairs for the rest room. I 
used to walk out into the 
small rose-garden in my 
nightdress, still dazed from 
shortage of sleep, and find 
solace in the early blooms 
growing on the rose-tree 
which commemorated Sister 


r FIRST 
^ PERSON 


Libby Purves 

Peck's 25 years in the hospi- 
tal. Sister Peck herself would 
be indoors, whisking around, 
creating comfort and security. 
There are several long-serv ice 
records at the Phyllis; girl 
babies who were first breast- 
fed under careful guidance 
from a young midwife now 
turn up with their own babies 
to learn the same lesson. 
Infinitely reassuring old- 
las bioned nursing is given 
day and night; relaxed, 
watchful utterly dedicated. 
And small-scale. 

So, naturally, the Phyllis is 
now for the chop. Any day 
now we expect the health 
authority to dismiss the pro- 
tests and name the last day. 
Rural GP5 plead that their 
patients need to be closer to 
home than Ipswich; mothers 
point oat that nobody has ever 
produced statistics on the 
further progress of Phyllis 
families — it could well be 
rl mt they have fewer prob- 
lems, and end up costing the 
NHS less in tranquillizers 
and GP visits. Nobody both- 
ers to tot up the cost-saving of 
breast-fed babies' healthier 
infancies, either. 








But the argument rarely 
used, because it would not 
even be understood by gov- 
ernment departments, is that 
such places have souls. And 
that once yon kill off a 
beloved old community-based 
institution, yon will never get 
it back: generations of loyalty 
and dedication and patient 
perfectionism will be dissipat- 
ed and wasted. Ironically, so 
will the spirit of economy and 
careful use of resources that 
goes with high morale and 
traditional values. 

It seems odd, sometimes, 
that a Government which 
preaches excellence and good 
housekeeping and hard work, 
should not be able to see when 
the embodiment of all these 
virtues is staring it right in 
the face. They should be 
sending study groups In to 
find out why these places are 
so good; not closing them 
down. 

We all have our car stickers 
saying “Fight for the 
Phyllis”; bnt we don’t have 
much hope. Not really. Cen- 
tralization, rationalization, a 
health service that looks won- 
derful on paper, is what we 
are going to get. We have seen 
it where business administra- 
tors have replaced awesome 
matrons; we see it when huge 
hospitals replace local ones. 
The people in the system will 
go on doing ttaeir best, as 
individuals; but unsupported 
by the intangible 
strengths of atzno- gft 
sphere and tradition of xH 
institutional people. O M 
brave new world. ^

If they were ever to ask me to 
do Body Language at O-level, 
I used to think I'd stand a 
pretty good chance. Ail that 
business about how to take up 
position at a drinks party and 
observe who’s actually yawn- 
ing bored with whom, who’s 
frightened of whom, and who 
likes whom. 

I'm even pretty good at 
spotting shoplifters in our 
local supermarket. Now and 
again you can see. someone 
whoa body movements are 

out of synchronization with 
the rest of the hypnotized 
shufflers. Jerky little gestures, 
furtive eye shifting, and {a 
dead giveaway, this one) slow- 
ly moving backwards out of 
the in-door with laden trolley. 

A long train journey is an 
excellent time for doing body 
language revision. Even if you 
catft stare at people directly, 
you can always observe them 
reflected in the window- 

I was standing, at Crewe 
station the othn , ‘ day with 
several million other people, 
waiting for the slow stopping 
train from Dundee to Poole. 
We surged forward when the 
train halted. Too many bored

down the aisle and I couldn’t 
believe it - a forward-facing

were soon among the restful 
scenery of green fields. 

But it was not restful for 
long Down the corridor 
strode a fellow in his late 30s, 
well dressed, with purposeful 
bearing. There were still sever- 
al aisle seats vacant, yet 
without a second's hesitation, 
he banged himself down next 
to me. 

The jolt startled both me 
and the punk. The newcomer 
proved to be a most disturbing 
fellow traveller. There was no 
armrest between us and I 
couldn't believe how insensi- 
tive the man could be. 

The ma ft sat too large and 
too close for comfort. Was he

pulled down a mackintosh,

His mackintosh, umbrella

THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Carlisle’s 

crusade 

As undaunted as he is outspoken. 
Tory MP John Carlisle will make 
another attempt in November to 
address Oxford university stu- 
dents on a matter close to his 
heart - freedom of speech. Ea rlier 
this year he was prevented from 
speakmg at Oriel College by 
students who did not share his 
\ iews on the maintenance oT Lrade 
and sporting links with South 
Africa. It will be interesting to 
observe how he fares next time 
round, as the Education Bill now 
going through Parliament should 
be enacted by the end of the 
present parliamentary session in 
October. If Tory backbenchers 
have their way. the new legislation 
will reinforce the rights of NIPs to 
visit campuses on speaking 
engagements, and emphasize the 
duties of vice-chancellors to 
strengthen security on such occa- 
sions. 

Renumbered 

When Brighton's Grand Hotel re- 
opens for business in August, the 
room in which the IRA bomb 
exploded during the 19S4 Tory 
conference will be deemed not to 
exist. After spending some £12 
million on rebuilding the dozen or 
so destroyed rooms and refurbish- 
ing the rest of the building. Room 
629 has been renumbered. The 
hotel says this is because the 
structure of the building has 
changed so that there are now 
fewer rooms. Perhaps manage- 
ment just fears guests would be 
superstitious about sleeping in a 
room with such tragic associ- 
ations? Incidentally, the suite Mrs 
Thatcher stayed in has now been 
named the "Presidential Suite”. 
Surely "Premier" would have 
more appropriate?

nomination papers were among 
the two million letters held up

consequently missing the closing 
date for registration. Labour and 
the SDP cannily made their 
deliveries by hand. Does this 
make them strike-breakers?

cretion. One evening recently, in

Hippy kippery 

Students at Lady Margaret Hall. 
Oxford, have invited the displaced 
hippy convoy to stay. Indeed, such 
is the generosity of youth that in 
the junior common room debate 
the original motion from the left- 
wing caucus, which would have 
allowed the hippies to pitch their 
tents in the quad, was amended so 
that students would vacate their 
own rooms if necessary. The 
overwhelming vote in favour up- 
holds the college's new-found 
desire for sexual equality (it began 
admitting men only in 1978) by- 
asking the convoy to ensure an 
equal number of men and women. 
Duncan Stewart, the college prin- 
cipal. assures me he is not 
“shaking in his shoes" But stu- 
dent president Philip Holiobone 
admits he is slightly concerned 
that what was intended as a jape 
could backfire and tarnish the 
university's image. What, still

Frustrated by their ignorance of 
employment trends, the Occupa- 
tions Study Group, a group of 
industrialists led by Sir Austin 
Bide, has just brought out a 
survey* of what the labour market 
could'look like in 1990. 

The authors. Amin Raj man and 
Richard Pearson, have gone about 
their task thoroughly, polling and 
interviewing employers of more 
than half the nation's workforce, 
and producing a picture of change, 
both in total and in structure. 

The result for the total is 
depressing: it will fall by about 
125.000. As for structure, employ- 
ment in service industries will 
expand, in manufacturing and 
agriculture will contract Among 
occupations, opportunities for the 
professions, part-time service sup- 
port staff and production tech- 
nologists will expand, while those 
for managers, operatives, special- 
ized pnxjuction craftsmen and 
full-time service staff will con- 
tract. 

The survey is on its strongest 
ground in its assessment of chang- 
ing structures. Much of this 
change is by now a mailer of both 
common observation and com- 
mon sense. Changing technology 
is creating a need Tor versatile 
people who can work with 
computers — a need that cannot, 
or only very expensively, be filled 
by automation. The expansion of 
services requires flexible and 
cheap pan-time labour. Unskilled 
labour is in decline, as is labour 
with specialized skills made valuer 
less by new technology. The 
weaknesses of the survey lie in its 
neglect of the price mechanism 
and its lack of any overall forecast 


Patrick Minford takes issue with a survey 
on emplo yment trends for failing to 
pay sufficient attention to market forces 


tor the economy. The employers 
intervewed were told: “.Assume 2 
to 3 per cent growth in the 
economy", but were told nothing 
about wages and prices. Yet. for 
example, the trend towards part- 
zime female labour owes a lot to its 
cheapness relative to full-time 
male labour. And as for the overall 
economy. 2 to 3 per cent growth is 
simply an ad hoc figure, but it is 
crucial to the assessment of the 
overall employment trend. 

In effect, what we have is an 
extrapolation of current trends. 
The trouble is that there is a 
serious downward bias of the total 
trend while employment is cur- 
rently growing by about 275,000 a 
year. Employment will have to fall 
by 400.000. not 125,000. for the 
survey to be righL 

How much, then, do we learn 
about the overall employment 
prospects? Nothing much at all. 
The forecasts of employers are no 
more valuable than the assump- 
tions on which they make them. 
Employers are notoriously bad at 
ihinking about hypothetical 
changes in prices or the state of the 
economy. 

It is clear that we have, in any 
forecast based on current policies, 
a problem of employment trends; 
even if employment continues to 
grow at 250.000 a year, unemploy- 
ment will fail only very slowly and 
long-term unemployment among 
unskilled workers wj|| probably 


nse. The survey shows that 
employers share this generally 
gloomy vision, not suprisingly 
considering the assumptions they 
have been fed. 

The interesting questions, 
though, are why these trends exist, 
and what policy changes could 
improve them. The survey virtu- 
ously but vacuously abstains from 
direct comment, proclaiming itself 
only as fact-finding. My own 
views are that the labour market, 
and the related housing market, 
have been ossified by government 
intervention. Wages of unskilled 
workers, which badly need to fall 
as some 80 per cent of the 
unemployed are such people, do 
not and cannot fall because social 
benefits are paid for unemploy- 
ment instead of for (low paid) 
employment. 

In addition, because of the Rent 
Act, such workers have no in- 
centive to move from areas of high 
unemployment to more pros- 
perous areas. Important improve- 
ments have been made (for 
example, trades union reform and 
the restructuring of national insur- 
ance contributions) but the prob- 
lems manifestly remain. But there 
is still time to make important and 
rapid improvements. The future 
not be as gloomy as the survey 
seems to suggests 

If this or any future government 
could be convinced of the need to 
deregulate the labour and housing 


markets, the trend would alter, 
possibly quite rapidly. Unskilled 
workers would become employed 
in lower-paid jobs; they would 
also retrain in much larger num- 
bers because the incentive would 
be greater; they would migrate 
from north to south; and there 
■would be higher growth as they 
were reabsorbed into the produc- 
tive economy. 

A last point: do 1 detect in the 
survey the old demand for 
“national effort" to train more 
engineers and others in 
“desirable” skills? I hope not. 
Governments that have gone in 
for this sort of manpower planning 
have fallen flat on their faces as 
trends unexpectedly changed. An 
example is- that of engineers, 
themselves where the contraction 
of manufacturing has substantially 
reduced demand for their skills. 

Let these decisions be taken by 
independent private companies 
and educational institutions. They 
have better information than the 
government because of their grass- 
roots position; they can respond 
faster and more flexibly; and if 
they get it wrong, they can 
withdraw quickly, unprotected by 
a political process. 

In sum, I fear that hidden 
beneath the plausible guise of 
impartial fact-finding worn by this 
survey there lurks the old Adam of 
planning and price-less econom- 
ics. Our past mistakes should lead 
us to prefer Adam Smith — and a 
return to a properly functioning 
marketplace.

It London had not had a green belt 
for the past 30 years there would 
have been property development 
without a break from Henley to 
Southend and from Tonbridge to 
Luton. Look at the maps in any 
Home Counties planning office 
and you will see that thousands of 
applications for development 
have been turned down because 
they were in the green belt. The 
same is true of other big urban 
areas. 

The green bell, according to the 
former Environment Secretary, 
Kenneth Baker, “has been one of 
the best developments of the 
planning system this century. It's 
very much an English thing, and it 
has slopped the sprawl of 
London". 

Stopping urban sprawl, which 
wastes space and swallows up 
countryside, has always been its 
main purpose. It obviously takes 
longer to get anywhere in a 
sprawling city; the roads, sewers 
and other service lines have to be 
longer and therefore more costly. 
Businesses want to be at the very 
centre; this pushes up land values 
to the point where smaller enter- 
prises. which add so much to the 
vitality and colour of cities, find it 
hard to survive. 

Protection of the countryside 
was another declared purpose of 
green bells when, in 1955. the 
government first asked the county 
planning authorities to define 
them. An "appreciable rural zone" 
should exist round the built-up 
areas, read the rubric; apart from 
protecting agriculture, green belts 
have helped to preserve hundreds 
of miles of footpaths, attractive 
picnic spots, wildlife and enor- 
mous recreation areas. 

The London green belt, which 
began with nearly 1,200 square 
miles in the late 1 950s, now has an 
area of nearly 2.200 square miles, 
as the result of large extensions in 
the late 1960s and early '70s. 

But the point that is too seldom 
made about green belts is that to 
make real sense they have to be 
part of an overall ‘development 
strategy for the whole of their 
urban region. If you prevent 
development in green belts then 
you have to allow it elsewhere. 

There are three options; (1) 
cram all development into exist- 
ing built-up areas; (2) make 
development leapfrog the green 
belt and go to existing towns and 
villages in the surrounding re- 
gions: or (3) allocate new green- 
field sites. 

The scope for the first of these 
varies but. on the whole, people in 
this country don't like living at 
high densities. If you count the 


David Hall urges a comprehensive strategy 
for new housing and development 

Reconciling 
green belt and 
greenfield 



latent demand for houses of 
people now living in high-density 
flats that they do not like, and add 
the demand from the general 
increase in households and people 
wanting to move from older 
property, you have a total demand 
that cannot be met in the existing 
conurbations, even if some of the 
derelict land is built on. In the 
words of Sir Ebenezer Howard, 
founding father of the garden dry 
movement and modem inventor 
of green belts, “Where will the 
people go?" 

The trouble with the second 
option is that further development 
of existing towns and villages 
beyond the green belt recreates on 
a smaller scale the same problem 
that the green belt is designed to 
solve for the conurbation itself. 
Throughout the 1960s and '70s 
scores if market towns had large 
spec-built estates tacked on to 
their edges. This often meant a 
supermarket where the old moot 
hall used to be. a multi-storey car 
park on the allotments, and a town 
centre by-pass through the old 


churchyard. Most of the small and 
medium-sized towns within com- 
muter distance of our major dries 
have already had more peripheral 
development than is good for 
them and the structure plans of the 
country planning authorities pro- 
vide for even more. 

The third option, of building on 
free-standing greenfield sites, is of 
course the new towns option. 
Almost 2.5 million people now 
live in them and they are a classic 
example of public sector invest- 
ment stimulating private sector 
industry of all kinds. But we no 
longer have a new towns' pro- 
gramme. The government has 
wound up all but a handful of the 
new town development corpora- 
tions. an act of folly given their 
wide-ranging ability to create jobs 
and provide homes. The new 
towns have never been a threat to 
the inner city areas. Only about 10 
per cent of the outward movement 
of population from our big dries 
in the last 30 years has gone to the 
new towns and most of their 
induslry has either been expan- 


sion of existing firms, companies 
coming in from abroad, or brand 
new businesses flourishing from 
small beginnings. 

In the absence of any govern- 
ment initiatives of this kind it is 
the private sector that is having to 
respond, especially in the South 
East, where there has been a rash 
of applications for small private 
sector new towns. The latest is at 
Tillingham Hall between Basil- 
don and Llpminster in Essex, 
which is now the subject of a 
public inquiry. This scheme is 
intended by the developers. Con- 
sortium Developments Ltd 
(CDL), to be the first in a series of 
small country towns around 
Greater London. 

But all these schemes will add 
only a maximum of 40.000 
houses, whereas even the lowest 
official estimates show that 
400.000 will be needed in the 
South East outside Greater Lon- 
don in the year 2000. That does 
not take into account the effects of 
the Channel Tunnel and the 
expansion of Stans ted airport 

For one reason or another all 
three options have their draw- 
backs and their advantages. The 
important question, therefore, is 
not which option should be 
adopted but how much of each 
option, and in what way. and how 
we can find out the right mix for 
each. This brings us back to 
regional planning. Yes, our inner 
city areas must be regenerated, 
and this requires more political 
will and money than we have seen 
so far. Yes, we must accept that 
more development should go to 
existing towns beyond green belts. 
And, yes, we shall need to build 
some new settlements on green- 
field sites. 

There are no easy answers. 
Every region in England and 
Wales (they do things better in 
Scotland) is long overdue for an 
up-to-date, well researched plan- 
ning strategy of the kind produced 
(or the South East in (970 (which 
has been progressively diluted 
ever since) and the Noah West in 
1974. A review of green belts 
should be a pan of those strategies 
and no TiJJjngham Hall schemes 
or any other changes in green belt 
allocations should be contem- 
plated until those strategies are 
prepared and approved. Until 
they are, the name of the game will 
be ad hoceery and every developer 
with an option to buy green belt 
land will claim that his bit should 
be developed as a special case.

The Achille Lauro sails into court 


Rome 

Today sees the stan of the trial, in 
Genoa, of the men accused of 
hijacking the Achille Lauro cruise 
liner last October. 

The hijack was one of a series of 
events which annulled Italian 
efforts to find a basis for negotia- 
tion on the Palestinian problem. It 
was preceded by the Israeli bomb- 
ing of the PLO headquarters in 
Tunisia and followed by the 
American bombing of Tripoli and 
Benghazi. 

Leon Klinghoffer, a crippled 
American Jewish passenger who 
was murdered during the hijakek, 
became, in transatlantic opinion, 
the archetypal American victim, 
caught between Arab terrorism 
and the European predilection for 
compromise. One result of the 
hijacking was the greatest crisis of 
understanding for many rears 
between the US and Europe, 
particularly Italy. 

The Genoa trial is unlikely to 
produce any great surprises. The 
Italian judicial inquiry' into the 
hijacking covered the ground in 
detail and. on the whole, convinc- 
ingly. The 1 1 5-page report calls for 
14 men to stand trial, of whom 
three are in custody and a fourth is 
free but due to appear at the 
hearings. A fifth was found to be 
aged only 17 at the time of the 
hijacking: he is to be tried by a 
juvenile court. 

The principal accused is Abu 
.Abbas, the Syrian-born head of the 
Palestinian Liberation Front. He 
will be tried in his absence because 
the Italian authorities freed him 
immediately after the hijack. At

Achille Lauro: the cruise that ended in crisis 


that time it was felt that there was 
insufficient evidence to arrest 
him. despite US insistence that he 
be held pending extradition. 

The Italian report — which 
identifies him with 24 aliases as 
well as his own name — charges 
him not only with planning the 
hijack but with controlling it 
throughout up to and including 
the final decision that caused the 
hijackers to surrender to the 
Egyptian authorities. 

The hijack began in the early 
afternoon of October 7. and ended 
more than 48 hours later. While 
the ship was in the hands of die 
hijackers, it headed for the Syrian 
port of Tartus. was refused per- 
mission to enter, then returned to 
Egypt, where the hijackers surren- 
dered. In the period of confusion 
following Syria's rejection of the 
ship. KJmghoffer was murdered 
and his body thrown into the sea. 

One member of the crew was 
injured and all the passengers were 
subjected to threats and extreme 


discomfort There are indications 
that the hijackers took drugs. 

The judicial inquiry arrived at 
the conclusion that the hijackers' 
motivation was political. It said 
the object was to take the Achille 
Lauro to Syria and there exchange 
the passengers for 50 Palestinians 
held by the Israel is. This would 
have proved to the world that the 
militant methods of Abu Abbas 
were more effective than the 
.moderation of Yassir Arafat head 
of the Palestine Liberation 
Organization, of which the Front 
was theoretically a pan. At that 
lime Italian diplomacy, backed by 
the EEC. was trying to put together 
an understanding between King 
Husain of Jordan and Arafat on 
who would represent Palestinian 
interests at talks with Israel. 

The Israeli attack on the PLO 
headquarters in Tunisia had al- 
ready damaged this idea and the 
Achille Lauro hijack sealed the 
fate of a diplomatic move which 
never showed much likelihood of 
success. Nevertheless, and ironi- 


Ji 


me mx veurgnui innuv minutes' drive 


cally, it worked during the hijack 
itself because Italian contacts with 
Syria are seen to have closed 
Tanus to the hijackers and, at the 
end. Italian promptings persuaded 
Arafat to make a contribution to 
the decision to surrender. 

Abu Abbas says there was no 
intention of hijacking the ship. 

The four men were going to the 
Israeli port of Ashdod — on the 
Achille Lauro itinerary — to cany 
out an attack. But in Egyptian 
waters they were discovered by a 
member of the crew as they 
checked their arms and had to take 
over the ship or risk arrest. 

The sling in the tail came after 
the surrender. The four hijackers. 

Abu Abbas and a sixth man were 
put on an Egyptian civil aircraft to 
be flown to Tunisia. The aircraft 
was intercepted by American 
fighters and forced to land at the 
Nato base at Sigonella in Sicily. 
Documents attached to the report 
provide a graphic account of how 
American officers at the base 
showed every intention of taking, 
over the group so that they could 
be tried in American courts. They 
were stopped by a show of strength 
by the Italian carabinieri. One 
minor mystery dealt wiih in an 
intelligence document annexed to 
the report is how the Americans 
knew the route of the Egyptian 
aircraft. The answer, according to 
this document, “can be only one”, 
and the person indicated is Field 
Marshal Abu Ghazal. the Egyptian 
defence minister. The allegation 
has been denied in Cairo.

Is the government's determina- 
tion to have morality taught in 
schools compatible with the 
maintenance of a free society, let 
alone feasible in the pluralistic and 
mulii-cultural atmosphere of Brit- 
ain in the 1980s? 

The last-minute amendment to 
the Education Bill, prescribing 
that teachers responsible for^sex 
education classes should en- 
courage pupils to have due regard 
to moral considerations and the 
value of - family life”, has been 
widely criticized by liberals as a 
reactionary move against a more 
tolerant society dating from the 
“permissive" Sixties. 

The fact is that, in many 
respects, the permissive society 
has been profoundly illiberal. Far 
from bringing freedom to young 
people, it has often made them 
slaves of powerful commercial 
interests and created a new confor- 
mity to peer group pressure just as 
stifling and inimical to individual 
expression as stem Victorian dic- 
tates. Liberty is not the same as - 
life. Rather it is the exercise of free 
and independent moral choice, 
guided by individual conscience 
and reason, informed by the 
received wisdom of the ages and 
operating in a framework of order 
and stability which provides the 
conditions for its growth and 
ensures that one person's freedom 
will not be another’s misery. The 
family can be one of the main 
providers of that stability, though 
not the only one. 

So there is nothing intrinsically 
illiberal in the Education Bill’s 
amendment The progressive 
withdrawal of moral guidance 
from the young over the past 20 
years or so has tended to weaken 
rather than strengthen their capac- 
ity for self-development and their 
true freedom. It has not created a 
more caring and tolerant society. 
Instead of learning the altruistic 
values of mutual co-operation, as 
was hoped, children are increas- 
ingly being brought up with a 
selfish, “me too” attitude — en- 
couraged by the media and, also, 
by aspects of this government's 
policy. 

Indeed, if the government really 
wants to improve the moral 
climate and strengthen family life 
it must show that it is not just on 
the side of profiteers and commer- 
cial interests. The recent attempt 
to legalize Sunday trading partly 
suggested no great regard for 
Christian morality or for the 
family lives of those who would 
have had to work on a day 
traditionally spent at home. 

But limited though it is, the 
government's initiative should be ■ 
welcomed as at least showing 
official awareness of a desperate 
social problem. We are now 
approaching the point where 50 
per cent of all children in Britain 
will experience lone parent status 
for five years of their childhood. 
The divorce rate has increased 30- 
fold over the last 50 years and the 
number of teenage pregnancies is 
more than 100,000 a year. 

The disruptions to children's 
lives that these figures represent is 
having a devastating effect on 
academic performance, quite 
apart from that to their emotions 
and expectations. A recent study 
of achievement in science subjects 


found that family disturbances 
were 20 times more significant 
than anv other variable in affect- 
ing results. Yet schools have 
hardly begun to put the subject of 
personal relationships and 
preparation for family bfe on the 
curnciiJum. A recent survey tound 
that no local education authority 
had a policy on education for 
parenthood. Where the subject 
was taught it had low status and 
was largely confined to classes of 
low-ability girls. 

There are at last signs that the 
subject is beginning to be taken 
seriouslv in both maintained and 
independent schools. A con- 
ference at Leicester University in 
April brought together teachers, 
psvchologists and representatives 
of" the Marriage Guidance Coun- 
ciL It was held on the initiative of 
OundJe School, which has ap- 
pointed a research officer in this 
field in a joint venture with the 
Marriage Research Centre. 1 my- 
self have been involved over the 
last year in setting up and running 
a pilot scheme at Cranleigh School 
in Surrey in which, under the tide 
“The Way We Live", small groups 
of sixth formers have met every 
week under the guidance of teach- 
ers to discuss topics ranging from 
friendship and marriage to coping 
with illness and bereavemenL 

Accepting the need for more 
education in this area is one thing; 
actuallv putting it into practice is 
more difficult Many teachers are 
understandably reluctant to take a 
moral stance, or to talk about their 
own relationships. There may well 
be a strong case for bringing in 
outsiders who are not seen by 
pupils as representing authority. 
More use could also be made in 
schools of trained counsellors. 

Then there is the fundamental 
problem of how far teaching about 
relationships and behaviour 
should be prescripted. The im- 
petus here may well come from 
the young who on the whole want 
much clearer guidance and greater 
direction than their teachers — 
many of whom were themselves 
schooled in the Sixties — are often 
prepared to give. Inculcating a 
sense of respect for other people's 
points of view is vital, and that 
includes the girl who says “no" 
just as much as the committed 
feminist or the couple who choose 
to live together outside marriage. 

And while it is right to stress the 
strengths and responsibilities of 
family life, it is very important 
that it is not presented as the be all 
and end all of existence, with those 
who choose not to marry or not to 
have children being regarded as 
deviant or abnormal. 

The government is right in 
wanting to see moral consid- 
erations taught and thought about 
in school, but wrong in suggesting 
that the proper place for such 
teaching and discussion is in sex 
education classes. It would be 
much belter to create a new core 
subject which encompasses the 
emotional and spiritual prepara- 
tion that is necessary’ for coping 
with adult life. Learning to func- 
tion as an independent moral 
being, making choices in an 
informed way, is a vital part of 
that process of developing the 
whole personality which lies at the 
heart ofliberai education.

People who do very unusual jobs 
indeed (No 28: An Englishman 
who has opened a factory in 
Japan). 

It is common enough to hear of 
Japanese companies setting up 
factories here in Britain, so it is all 
the more welcome to come across 
someone who has done the op- 
posite. That is exactly what 37- 
year-old Brian Duggle did when, 
in 1984, he became general man- 
ager of MacPrestile’s factory in 
northern Japan, where they make 
compact floor-tile accessories. 

By so doing. MacPresrile cre- 
ated 600 jobs for Japanese work- 
ers. But wasn't that a strange thing 
to do when so many people in 
Britain are unemployed and so 
few in Japan are jobless? 

“Yes”, Brian admits. “On the 
Tace of it, it’s quite loony. But we 
wanted to prove that our floor-tile 
operation could be extended over- 
seas. using tried and proven 
British methods. I think now we 
have proved that." 

And how have the Japanese 
taken to British working methods? 

“They were very suspicious at 
first. They didn't like starting the 
day without communal exercises, 
for one thing — in fact, they even 
got to work early to organize 
voluntary physical drill them- 
selves. We had to come down 
pretty hard on that, I can tell you. _ 
“Then again, they were very ‘ 
surprised when we turned down 
the one-union, no-strike agree- 
ment that they offered us. We had 
to insist on dealing with as many 
unions as we could, introducing 
areas of future conflict, wage 
differentials, and so on. 

“It was a bloody hard battle. 
They didn't have enough unions, 
for a start, so we had to form one 
or two. And I sometimes got the 
impression (hat they were actually 
mentally incapable of grasping 
concepts like demarcation and 
inter-union rivalry. They just 
couldn't adapt to our way of 
thinking." 

Six hundred jobs is a lot for one 
factory to provide. Did he put this 
down to the success of their 
product? 

1U B-. LONDON -YAWS' 


“Not especially. Again, I put it 
down more to our working meth- 
ods. The Japanese keep telling me 
that they could run the factory 
with 60 people, so I have to tell 
them: ‘Look, you're doing things 
the British way now, sunshine!’ 
Anyway, with 60 people I doubt 
we could run (he cricket and 
football teams.” 

The Japanese play cricket? 

“Oh, yes. Well, only at our 
factory. But our in-factory league 
is highly successful, as are the 
darts tournament, leek contest, 
pigeon-racing and so on. After 
initial resistance, our workers 
have taken to all this like a duck to 
water, and if you stroll round the 
plant you can see them every- 
where, chatting about the coming 
weekend's activities as they pop 
behind a crate for a quick fag. Of 
course, they go pretty quiet as I 
approach, but I imagine that's 
what they’re talking about." 

Why do they go so quiet? 

"Because they hate me. of 
course. I'm management. They’ve 
got the good old Us versus Them 
approach. Finally.” 

And how is the product doing in 
Japan? 

“Not well". Brian admits. “We 
didn't do our initial research as 
well as we could have, so we didn't 
realize that the Japanese aren't 
actually interested in compact 
floor-tiles or their accessories, and 
what little they buy they can get 
cheap from Korea. But we export a 
lot, to Britain. Of course, it makes 
it expensive, but l like to think it's 
a typically British solution to the 
problem." 

What do his Japanese workers 
think about die situation? 

"I’ve_ no idea. Once you start 
consulting your workers, you’re 
on the slippery slope down to - 
well, I hate to think where. And it 
doesn’t do to get too close to 
people. When we close this factory 
down suddenly, as we shall almost 
certainly have to soon. I won’t 
have that personal wrench that 
real involvement would have 
meanly Good Lord, is that the 
time? I'm due on the golf course at 
three. Must dash ”

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


THE POLICE STATE ADVANCES 


When the South African Dep- 
uty Information Minister; Mr 
Louis Nel, was seeking an 
example of the land of press 
bias that his government’s new 
censorship regulations are sup- 
posedly intended to curb, he 
claimed that foreign journal- 
ists had not sufficiently distin- 
guished' in their reporting 
between blacks shot by the 
police and blacks killed by 
other -Macks. Let us suppose, 
for the sake of argument, that 
this interesting criticism was 
just What conclusions would 
flow from it? 

'Die sceptic might observe 
that if censorship is being 
imposed to remedy such a 
complaint, then it will in- 
evitably prove to. be self- 
defeating. Once reporters are 
forbidden to report rioting and 
unrest then they will be 
forbidden ipso facto to report 
the circumstances of -the 
deaths in such rioting. In the 
absence of such independent 
information, all deaths ~ hot 
merely some — will be then 
attributed directly to police 
repression by a world opinion 
which has not found the 
statements of South African 
Ministers upon the deaths of 
black people at police hands to 
be invariably reliable. 

The sceptic will finall y won- 
der if there , are not darker 
motives behind the Minister’s 
argument Perhaps the South 
African police wish to be able 
to shoot black people away 
from the embarrassing glare of 
media publicity that reporters 
bring in their train. Or maybe 
they fear that the presence of 
reporters would reveal some- 
thing even more embarrassing ' 
to a South African police force 
than a few deaths of people on 
their way to a funeral — 
namely, that they are hot able 
to suppress continual rioting 
even when granted emergency 
powers and freedom from 
press attention. 

In short, the arguments used 
to justify the censorship 
regulations do not soothe any 
of the fears expressed by either 
journalists or the general pub- 
lic. They actually serve., to 
create new anxieties. The 
mildest curbs could hardly be • 
justified by such feeble 
argumentation — and these 
particular regulations are ex- 
treme in the extremes There 
has been imposed a ban on all . 
first-hand reporting of unrest 
or police and array activity 
without the prior permission 


of the authorities. Without 
that permission, the news me- 
dia are prohibited from dis- 
seminating, within or outside 
South Afnca, any news or 
comment concerning any ac- 
tion taken by the security 
forces to protect the safety of 
the public; maintain public 
order or terminate the state of 
emergency. 

Such a wide-ranging pro- 
hibition, if faithfully observed, 
would render all reporting 
from. South Africa absurd. 
Newspapers could report cat- 
tle-shows, economic statistics, 
company accounts, even 
beauty contests r- all the 
incidents and apparatus of 
normal everyday life when the 
world knew that a state and 
society was being shaken to its 
foundations. - The eerie sur- 
realist picture created by such 
censored reports would be 
paradoxically more damaging 
to the Botha regime than even 
the reports of the riots and 
repression have been — for it 
would convey the impression 
that South African Ministers 
were living in a dream world, 
assiduously g ag g in g any mes- 
senger who seemed likely to be 
carrying a warning. 

But the South African gov- 
ernment, as the Eminent Per- 
sons Group noticed, is fertile 
with rationalisations. The first 
is that a government — even 
one whose legitimacy is in 
doubt — has a duty to maintain 
order. Media coverage of riots 
both assures potential rioters 
on foe spot that their protest 
will receive major attention 
and advertises future distur- 
bances. to those who might 
wish to attend. Pretoria is 
therefore acting prudently in 
halting this flow of dangerous 
information. 

That might be a respectable 
argument if foe riots could be 
depicted as foe result of 
“agitation” or a “copycat” 
tactics. But no-one can sup- 
pose that to be the case. 
Rioting in South Africa is foe 
effect of long-suppressed and 
genuine grievances. & might, 
even be argued, following de 
Tocqueville, . that the : 
government's reform pro- 
gramme has played an un- 
intended part by suggesting to 
black people that their oppres- 
sion, long endured as in- 
evitable, was something that 
could be changed by direct 
action. That belief will- not 
now be conjured out of exis- 
tence. And if rioting and 


publicity about h are sup- 
pressed, foe sole effect will be 
to drive discontent into new 
channels of subversion of 
which the government is ig- 
norant. That is not a result 
which any sensible despotism 
should aim at 

A second rationalisation is 
that foe new methods of 
censorship are nothing very 
startling; Such censorship is 
foe rule in Soviet Russia, most 
communist countries and the 
bulk of foe Third World. The 
media, alleges Pretoria, makes 
little fuss in .its reports about 
these examples of censorship 
— and in the past gave little 
credit to Pretoria for foe 
considerable leeway allowed to 
its own “semi-free press". So 
what has foe Botha govern- 
ment to lose from this rever- 
sal? 

There is just enough truth in 
this to make it pernicious. 
South Africa has long been a 
curious society in which 
oppressive government prac- 
tices were restrained at foe 
margin by a remnant of liberal 
institutions — a semi-free 
press, an independent ju- 
diciary, outspoken churches. 
Those insulations have often 
been cited by Nationalist gov- 
ernment Ministers (when 
speaking to foreigners) as ev- 
idence that South Africa was 
part of the Western world — 
with terrible injustices to be 
sure, but distinguished from 
foe totalitarian world in which 
oppression was a seamless 
garment covering the courts, 
foe press, foe judiciary, and all 
aspects of life. The freedom of 
foe press, in particular, was 
something which ensured that 
foe injustices of apartheid 
never slipped from view. It 
was an essential factor pushing 
foe whole nation and foe 
Botha government however 
reluctantly, in foe direction of 
reform. 

Now, however, that voice is 
being stilled. The police state 
has extended its sway not just 
over journalists, but over foe 
right of South Africans, and 
outsiders to know what is 
going on at foe moment of 
gravest crisis. At a time when 
its government is still declar- 
ing a willingness to reform. 
South Africa has slipped over a 
crucial boundary between free- 
dom and despotism in fo 
wrong direction. 

It will be foe plain duty of 
newspapers and television to 
ensure that these restraints do 
not succeed. 


THE SIGNALS FROM TRIPOLI 


Two months after foe 
American air raid on his 
capital Colonel Gadaffi of 
Libya is reported to be in deep 
trouble; He foiled to appear at 
a rally last week, instead 
marking the anniveisary of his 
accession to power with a 
television monologue which 
was not even live. He is said to 
be under medical treatment — 
and on television it looked as if 
it was not doing him very 
much good. So what is going 
on? 

The answer to that could 
still be — nothing. Gadaffi has 
disappeared and reappeared 
before, thereafter continuing 
with his highly individual style 
of government as if nothing 
had happened. In a country 
which hardly believes in free- . 
dom of information, journal- 
ists and diplomats can' only 
speculate and this time as 
before, they might just have 
got it wrong. 

The length of his political 
convalescence since foe raid 
and foe evidence that can now 
be accumulated, suggests how- 
ever that for once they may 
well have got it right What- 
ever the nature of his com- 
plaint or the imminence of his 
demise. Gadaffi is fecing prob- 
lems which in a different kind 
of system might at least have 

lost hint the next election. 


In the first {dace foe Libyan 
economy is going through hard 
times. CHI revenues on which it 
depends have slumped by 75 
per cent to around £3.5 billion 
in five years — chiefly because 
of the international collapse in 
prices. Now he has been 
warned by foe Italian govern- 
ment that it is preparing to 
diversify its oil supplies — 
about 16 per cent of which 
now come from Libya. This is 
in response to repeated Ameri- 
can requests for sanctions 
against Tripoli and despite a 
succession of Libyan price cuts 
to keep its customers happy. 
With foe number of Italians 
working in the country down 
to below 3,000, foe Craxi 
government now feels able to 
take the tougher line which its 
allies have been urging upon it 
In foe second place Libya 
looks increasingly isolated. Al- 
though the Arab work! reacted 
angrily to foe April raids on 
Tripoli and Benghazi, it has 
not followed up by joining 
Gadaffi in foe political crusade 
he keeps preaching against the 
West Nor has the Eastern 
bloc. The Soviet Union, not a 
country which relishes any 
shocks to its system, views 
Gadaffi’s maverick leadership 
with deep mistrust. The East 
Germans moreover are said to 
have shown little enthusiasm 


to supply Gadaffi with foe 
arms he has been requesting 
unless he can let them see foe 
colour of his money — which 
at present he is in no position 
to do. 

Thirdly there have been 
indications for some time that 
other officers, subordinate to 
Gadaffi in Libya's ruling coun- 
cils, have begun to assume 
more power. His deputy, Ma- 
jor Jalloud, in particular would 
seem to have risen to a more 
prominent role. It is hard to be 
sure in Libya but foe conjunc- 
tion of events leads this time to 
the conclusion that there is 
growing dissatisfaction in 
Tripoli. 

Whether this might lead in 
turn to changes in favour of 
the West, is another matter. 
Nor is it clear how much 
Gadaffi's apparent dis- 
comfiture has been intensified 
by foe raid on his head- 
quarters. Libya's growing 
problems date back to earlier 
beginnings. But the evidence 
would suggest foe attack has 
deepened them, plunging the 
country in general and Gadaffi 
_in particular into a state of 
deep shock from which neither 
has frilly recovered. . Libya 
undoubtedly will do so in 
time, but the question marks 
now prominently hang over its 
front man. 


PRINCE OF SIGHS 


Prince Philip is a tall man — 
and he speaks from an ele- 
vated point of view. He has 
also just celebrated his sixty- 
fifth birthday, an occasion 
which may beget a certain 
elevated regret even in princes. 
Bui it somehow still comes as a 
shock when the man whom 
most of us associate with foe 
"puH-your-finger-out " school 
of philosophy, . if with any, 
should tell Woman 's Own that 
“the older I get, foe more 
cynical I gel in foe sense that I 
just think things are going to 
gel worse'*. 

Maybe we have misunder- 
stood the Queen's husband 
over all these years. His birth- 
day interview was not foe first 
time he has expressed alarm 
about foe -frightening" growth 
in world jMp^aiion, the dan-. 


ger that nuclear war will be 
started by “idiots” or foe 
“inevitable? grave' damage 
that will be done to our 
environment oyer foe- next 
century. But in all those past 
speeches to one' group ■ of 
worthies or another there was 
never quite foe sense that he 
meant it. His warnings were 
more in the nature of a 
frustrated kick up foe backside 
than a firm moral reflection. 

The image of foe Duke of 
Edinburgh — to the vast 
majority who are not speech- 
loving diners for foe World 
Wild Life Fund or generous 
purchasers of charity books — 
is of the family disciplinarian 
fix* whom, foe. best cure-all is 
foe Gordonstdiin cold shower.' 
Now we must all learn to live 
with a . royal consort . who . . 


sounds resoundingly de- 
pressed. Which is a pity. For 
foe nation has no shortage of 
gloom-merchants, many of 
them more subtle in their 
dispensations than is the 
Duke. Where we are weaker is 
in those very values of vig- 
orous optimism that the Duke 
once seemed to represent. 

The royal family needs at 
least one resident hard-man. 
So if Prince Philip is, at 65, a 
trifle bowed. If he is to be now

persona match gloomy reality,

Putting pressure 
on South Africa 

From the High Commissioner for 
the Republic of Zambia 
Sir, I refer to your recent leading 
article. “The Commonwealth and 
sanctions" (June 10), in which an 
argument was constructed on the 
suggestion that President Kaunda 
had warned her Majesty the 
Queen of the possibility of a 
Commonwealth break-up unless 
Britain agrees to sanctions against 
South Africa. President Kaunda 
has not involved her Majesty in 
this matter and it is unfortunate 
that this feci was not checked 
before the article was written. 

As to the merit of sanctions, 
Zambia needs no lectures on this. 
When, at the request of HM 
Government and the UN, we in 
Zambia imposed sanctions against 
the illegal Smith regime, we were 
the first to suffer and our economy 
still suffers as a result. Lesotho, 
recently blockaded by South Af- 
rica, can also testify as to the 
effects. Your leading article stated 
that sanctions do not work. It is 
agreed that partial sanctions, ap- 
plied half-heartedly, have a lim- 
ited effect The matter under- 
review is, however, not about 
limited measures. 

Your article stales that sanc- 
tions win cause black unemploy- 
ment and this is admitted even by 
the majority of South Africans 
who still fee! that only the 
demonstrated strength of the out- 
side world will avert a disaster. 
Black leaders, including Church 
leaders, call persistently for sanc- 
tions. They prefer the temporary 
suffering to the continued evil of 
apartheid. That sanctions will hit 
British employment is also 
known, yet the TUC has voted in 
favour of the imposition of sanc- 
tions. 

As the EPG (Eminent Persons 
Group) report makes dear, we are 
faced with the threat of nation- 
wide conflagration in South Af- 
rica, with resultant suffering to the 
whole of southern Africa and only 
determined, united measures can 
prevent this. Since dialogue over 
the years has failed, since South 
Africa has ignored the voice of the 
world, the voice of most of its 
citizens, the requirements of the 
UN and the International Court of 
Justice, there yet remains the 
possibility that it may listen to the 
voice, and actions, of a united 
Commonwealth. 

Yours faithfully,

Levy on housing 

From Mr C. Mackenzie 
Sir, Mr Christopher Johnson. 
Lloyds Bank economic adviser, is 
reported (June 9) as suggesting the 
replacement of the current domes- 
tic rating system by a levy of 15 
per cent v AT on new houses and 
an indexed CGT (capital gains 
tax) of29 per cent. 

Quite apart from the impact of 
the former on house starts (pay 
now, benefit later), what effect 
would the latter have on the 
decision by house owners whether 
to move? This may be expected to 
considerably undermine foe 
predictable economic model of a 
regular annual levy and find the 
local authority director of finance 
having to juggle with a slow, 
quick, quick, quick, slow . . . from 
year to year (and, in our more 
deprived areas, slow, slow, stop). 

No, one may assume (despite 
the diminishing benefit of income 
tax relief on mortgage repay- 
ments) that home owners would 
deride not to move at all — at least 
for as long as possible. Mind you. 
this may encourage Mr Johnson's 
employers to find an alternative 
use for the expanding chain of 
estate agents that they are cur- 
rently publicising.

Stag hunt decsion 

From the Chairman of the British 
Field Sports Society 
Sir. Mr Richard Course's intem- 
perate attack on the formers of 
Exmoor (June 5) will cause no 
surprise. Somerset County Coun- 
cil rejected the motion against 
bunting which his friends pro- 
moted because a majority of 
councillors had the good sense to 
realise that if hunting was stopped 
the herds of red deer would 
disappear — as they so nearly did 
when hunting lapsed in the 19th 
century. 

Deer worth more than £300 as 
venison or as much as £1,000 as 
trophies, crossing and recrossing 
several individual holdings every 
night would, if they ceased to be 
seen as a common resource, 
sooner or later be converted into 
cash. 

The le^ue Against Cruel 
Sports now appear to suggest they 
should be allowed to mastermind 
some sort of armed quango to 
“manage" the herd. Exmoor is a 
patchwork of different land- 
ownership. Is it proposed that this 
body should have power to enter 
private land at will and against the 
owners* wishes in order to shoot 
the deer? 

Such a proposal would involve 
radical and threatening changes in 
the law. It is a preposterous idea 
and the public should be aware of 
what might be involved.

A student’s death at Oxford 


From the Vice-Chancellor of 
Oxford University 
Sir. With court proceedings pend- 
ing it is clearly improper to 
comment on a recent tragic death 
in this university. There are, 
however, some statements of gen- 
eral character in your leading 
articIe.~Questions for Oxford" 
(June 16). on which something 
needs to be said. 

First, students of this university 
are as a community hard-working 
and dedicated to achieving success 
—in examinations and in research. 
For this purpose physical and 
mental fitness are essential as 
they well know. 

Secondly, the health and welfare 
of the students is the constant 
concern of the college authorities. 
In the experience of college heads 
and deans the taking of drugs by 
students is rare. College doctors 
tell me that the incidence of drugs 
among students here is less than 
among comparable age groups 
outside the university. 

Thirdly, it is misleading to say, 
as your leading article does, that 
there is in practice “an uneasy 
division of responsibilities be- 
tween university and college 
authorities". 

Fourthly, it is wrong to insinu- 
ate that the university authorities 
“regard post-examination revelry, 
even when it gets out of hand, as 
just another tradition to be 
maintained". I know of no basis of 
fact which could possibly substan- 
tiate this suggesion. 

Finally, while it is not possible 
in the space of a short letter to 
controvert every erroneous state- 


ment in your leading article. I 
must take exception to the 
extraordinary description of the 
undergraduate courses at Oxford 
as “very loosely-structured 
education” 

Yours faithfully, 

PATRICK NEILL, 

University Offices, 

Wellington Square. Oxford. 

June 17. 

From Mr Leonard Cox 

Sir. May I refer to your leader this 

morning? 

There is nothing “peculiar" about 
the poignancy of early death, 
whether or not the victim has 
come from a privileged back- 
ground, and there must be very 
few deaths at the age of 22 that 
cannot be described as 
“untimely". Circumstances of 
birth and wealth have absolutely 
nothing to do with the awful ness 
of the event- All the sadness lies in 
the utter defeat of future hopes. 

What for parents and other 
relations, "especially those who 
happen to be well known or have 
well-known connections, makes 
bad much worse is newspaper 
publicity, in particular publicity of 
the nastier kind that is quite 
unsparing of the pain it may cause. 

The photograph of poor Olivia 
Channon that you chose last week 
to illustrate her tragedy 1 would 
include in the latter category. 
Yours faithfully, 

LEONARD COX,

Trade with Europe 

From Mr Basil de Ferranti. MEP 
for Hampshire Central (European 
Democrat (Conservative)) 

Sir, Making it as easy to trade in 
Europe as it is in the united States 
would not only save 80 pence in 
every £10 we spend, but is an 
essential freedom if we are to 
maintain living standards and 
reduce the numbers of un- 
employed. 

The recent changes to the Rome 
Treaty are aimed at encouraging 
the use of majority voting in the 
very technical areas involved. 
This means making it easier for 
salesmen from one European 
country to get orders in another, 
and making it possible for lorries 
to cross the frontiers without 
having three-hour delays and 
paperwork, which incur £9 billion 
of unnecessary costs. 

This is not a “steamroller" we 
must “ward off" (to paraphrase 
your headline of June 16). It is a 
vital precondition for, our sur- 


vival. The trouble with it is not 
that it threatens our liberty —quite 
the reverse; it is that the details are 
inordinately boring. 

The European Parliament, in 
general, and the Kangaroo Group, 
more specifically, have got on with 
it. The “internal market", to use 
the jargon, is the top priority of the 
Community institutions because 
of pressure from the Parliament. 
We have been struggling with the 
details for many years pasL 

Our “executive" is the Council 
of Ministers and the Commission, 
and with Lord Cockfield’s pro- 
gramme to eliminate the frontiers 
by 1992. they are gening on with 
the job. 

The interest and enthusiasm of 
members of the UK Parliament. 
Mr Cash [writer of the article] 
included, is always welcome. 
Yours faithfully.

Channel tunnel 

From Sir John Arbuihnot 
Sir, Brigadier Calvert, in his letter 
today (June 13), quotes Sir Auck- 
land Geddes as saying “the prop- 
erty owners of Kent have always 
been prepared to sacrifice their 
only sons for their country, but 
not one square yard of their land". 

We are not all tarred with this 
brush. The Channel tunnel will 
come out on land owned by the 
Folkestone and District Water 
Company, of which I am chair- 
man. The view that my company 
takes is that, provided there are 
adequate safeguards against pollu- 
tion of the water supply and the 
maintenance of the water table, we 
will co-operate fully in the 
construction of the tunneL 

In our view it could well be that 
with the tunnel the cost of 


transport of our exports might be 
significantly reduced to Europe. 
Transport cost is a major factor in 
our ability to compete in this 
major area of our trade. In fact we 
have already seen a reduction in 
freight costs for cross channel 
traffic and the proposal to build 
larger ships which will be more 
competitive. Might this not be a 
direct consequence of the impend- 
ing tunnel? 

There is also the factor of 
increased employment, not only 
in the building of the tunnel but 
also in the rolling stock which will 
be necessary. 

Yours faithfully, 

JOHN ARBUTHNOT,

SDP and defence 

From Professor David Marquand 
Sir. You describe (leading article, 
June 10) Mrs Shirley WUliams, Mr 
William Rodgers and Mr John 
Roper as “professional fudgers". 
What precisely have they fudged? 

Presumably, Mrs Williams's 
crime is to point out that the 
proposals contained in the report 
of the joint Alliance commission 
on defence are in line with the 
existing policy of the SDP. That 
happens to be a foot Those who 
wish Britain to remain a nuclear 
power in any but inconceivable 
circumstances will, no doubt find 
it an unpalatable fact. It is a feet 
nevertheless. 

As for Mr Rodgers and Mr 
Roper, I suppose their crime is to 
have served as SDP members of 


the joint commission. Had they 
abandoned the SDPs existing 
policy for the sake of reaching 
agreement with the Liberals, your 
strictures might have been jus- 
tified. But they have not done so. 
The commission report clarifies 
and sharpens the multi lateral ist 
position for which the SDP has 
always stood — and in support of 
which, for that matter, some of us 
rallied to Hugh Gaitskell in the 
tatties in the Labour Party 25 
years ago. 

It is lime you realised that the 
SDP is not, never has been, and is 
most unlikely to become a branch 
of the Conservative Party. 

Yours etc, 

DAVID MARQUAND,

Embassy garden 

From Sir WiUiam Hayter 
Sir, It is sad to hear from your 
diarist (June 9) that the project of 
building on the garden of the 
British Embassy in Vienna is still 
alive. This is one of the 
handsomest of all British em- 
bassies. but when I was a secretary 
there in the thirties it was maned 
by the total absence of any space 
round it (it used to have a garden, 
and the embassy church stood in it 
until a road was driven between 
them). The World War II destruc- 


tion of a neighbouring block 
enabled this lack to be remedied. 

If building in the garden thus 
created was going to save a great 
deal of public money one could, I 
suppose: reluctantly accept it as a 
sad necessity. Bui if your .diarist is 
right and it is going actually to cost 
money it seems absurd to go ahead 
with iL 

Yours faithfully.

The hippy convoy 

From Mr Reg Collett 
Sir. How 1 laughed when I read the 
letter written by Mrs Judith Verity 
(June 12). Her reference to “the 
hippy caravan" as a “relatively 
harmless proportion 1 of the 
population" could only have been 
written from London SWI5! 

My partner and i rent 25 acres 
of land on which we keep a small 
flock of sheep: during the summer 
the sheep graze about half the land 
while the other half is used to grow 
grass which we hope to turn into 
hay. The hay keeps the flock going 
in winter, so if a relatively 
harmless proportion of foe 
population choose to use it as a 
spot to camp upon, trample down 
and fertilize with their excreta we 
will have nothing to feed our 
shew in winter. 

What will we do? My wife and I 
are old-age pensioners and my 
partner is a milk roundsman, so 


you see we are not exactly wealthy 
and couldn't afford to buy in hay 
for fodder. 

I understand and sympathise 
with people who wish to “opt out” 
of this society, but what I don't 
understand is why they expect 
hand-outs from foe very society 
they despise. We have to rent our 
bit of land, but Mrs Verity suggests 
we help with taxes to supply free 
land to alternative lifestyles. 

No doubt the intelligensia of 
SW15 have an answer, but I 
suspect that Mrs Verity would not 
like it ifl came up to London and 
squalled in her secretarial agency. 
She chooses to forget that foe 
fields are just as much a place of 
work as her office is and should be 
respected as such. 

Yours truly.

ON THIS DAY 


JUNE 18 1829 

Hardly a month parsed without 
The Times recording several 
instances of suicide, often 
ingenious in their methods and 
bizarre in their circumstances, but 
each conveying the same messagi 
of misery. The Lambeth-street 
magistrate. Mr Hardwick, had 
ordered an inquiry into "the 
circumstances attendant on the 
melancholy suicide of Miss 
Hermandine Both, and the 
unsuccessful attempt made to the 
accomplishment of a similar 
catastrophe by her sisters. " 


THE ATTEMPTED SUICIDE OF 
THE HANOVERIAN LADIES. 
... It appeals that their erratic' 
conduct is to be attributed to an 
excessive feeling of the dishonour 
inflicted on their family by the 
supposed seduction of a young 
sister by an officer of the English 
army. This quite disorganised their 
min d s; and under the impression 
that their self-destruction would 
wipe away the imaginary stain, the 
sisters, (five in number), were 
rowed into the centre of a lake, into 
which they simultaneously plunged 
with the intention of terminating 
existence. Two of them were the 
sacrifice of their distempered sen- 
sibility, and the three surv- 
ivors' . . . conduct has excited so 
much interest. 

To this idea of disgrace another 
succeeded — viz that they had large 
claims on this Government for 
services alleged to have been 
rendered by their father; and to 
recover these they came to Lon- 
don. On arrival here, they lived in 
the most fashionable and expen- 
sive hotels, and incurred so many 
debts as shortly to place them 
within the walls of gaoL On their 
liberation, His Majesty was g 
ciously pleased to transmit 50/ to 
enable them to return to their 
native country; but in ^lace of 
appropriating it to the purpose for 
which it was destined, it was in 8 
few months expended, and they 
were left as before, pennyless. 
Count Munster, the Hanoverian 
Ambassador, subsequently inter- 
vened in their behalf and humanely 
offered to pay their expenses home, 
if they would engage to return to 
their friends. To this considerate 
proposition they at first joyously 
acceded: but on being informed 
that their conveyance to Dover was 
to be a stage-coach, their pride 
recoiled, they contemptuously 
spurned the offer, and peremptori- 
ly refused to move, unless a private 
carriage were provided for their 
journey. Having learned that the 
young ladies to whom he [Mr 
SchmidUtranslator at Lloyd’s] has 
been a steady friend were in 
lodgings at Mill-wall. Poplar, he 
went there to ascertain what state 
they were in . . . Their father, he 
said, was formerly chief fencing- 
master to the Hanoverian court, in 
virtue of which he enjoyed 
pension, which, through the liber- 
ality of the Government, was 
continued to his family. Having a 
larger house than he had occasion 
for, he received — a circumstance 
not unusual with respectable fam- 
ilies on the Continent — several 
persons en pension, or boarders. 

Among these was Mr C , who 

eloped with one of his sisters which 
he understood was the original 
cause of the strange conduct of the 
other sisters . . .The eider sister 
observed to him that they were 
offered a shelter, on conditional 
terms, in a convent in France, if 
they would accept it. The terms 
were that they should abjure their 
religion, the Lutheran, and adopt 
the Romish faith. This they could 
not think of, and consequently lost 
the proffered advantage. They 
seemed when he saw them to be 
under the influence of a strong 
religious feeling, and expressed an 
anxiety for the spiritual assistance 
of a German clergyman. The 
unfortunate female who perished 
was. he said, the youngest, and 
constantly carried a dagger in her. 
girdle, as indeed did the others 
some destructive instrument, and 
his opinion was, that they were 
mentally deranged, and that at 
some period or other they would 
effect their deadly purpose . . . 


Cleaning up 

From Mr C. F. MacLaren 
Sir. If Mrs Thatcher wants cleaner, 
liner-free British streets she might 
do worse than send a competent 
delegation to Leningrad to ask foe 
city fathers how it's done. 

In a week just spent there, seeing 
thousands of people, mostly Rus- 
sian. trekking over the vast 
squares, over the splendid palaces, 
the Summer Palace parks, 
debouching from fleets of In- 
tourist buses. I saw one. solitary 
hideously wicked, lid of an ice- 
cream canon. 

I was so horrified after litterless 
days, that I as near as dammit put 
it in my pocket, lest I sin by 
proximity.

RHS early summer show 


Blooms banish winter blues 

By Alan Toogood, Horticulture Correspondent 


Gardens have revived amaz- 
ingly rapidly after the Arctic 
winter and the cold late spring. 

The Royal Horticultural 
Society's New Hall in West- 
minster is full of colourful 
early summer flowers and 
shrubs; lupins from 
Butterfield Nursery, of Bourne 
End. Buckinghamshire, and 
Woodfield Brothers, of Strat- 
ford-upon-Avon. Warwick- 
shire: sweet peas from Sand N 
Brackley. of Wingrave, Buck- 
inghamshire; and irises, del- 
phiniums and other 
herbaceous plants from 
Rougham Hall Nurseries, of 
Rougbam, Suffolk. 

A great deal of colour and 
interest is being created by the 
RHS flowering trees and 
shrubs competition. A leading 
prizewinner is R.N. Stephen- 
son Clarke, of Borde HilL 
Sussex, who is ■ showing 
Embothrivm coccineum with 
brilliant scarlet flowers, the 
yellow Berber/s fyceum, or- 
ange Rhododendron cocci nea 
spcciosa, the white-flowered 
Viburnum plicatum. Rhodo- 
dendron insigne, and 


CaUistemott dtrinus with red 
bottlebrush flowers. 

The National Trust, of She£ 
field Park Gardens, Sussex, 
has won prizes for the pink 
Enkianthus campanalatus 
and Rhododendron ‘Duke of 
York'; and G A Hardy, of 
SandJing Park, Hytbe, Kent, 
has gained a first for azalea 
'Bouquet de Flore’. 

The British Iris Society’s 
show is well supported and 
leading prizewinners are: 

Mrs M Fooler, of Powys. Wales, the

OBITUARY 


PROFESSOR THOMAS 
Sanskrit and Dravidian 


Professor Thomas Burrow. 
FBA. who died on June 8 ai 
the ege of 76. was Boden 
Professor of Sanskrit in, the 
University of Oxford from 
1944 to 1976. and a distin- 
guished international author- 
ity on the Dravidian languages 
of India. 

He was born on June 29, 
1909. in the village of Leek in 
North Lancashire. He re- 
ceived his early education at 
Queen Elizabeth Grammar 
SchooL Kirkby Lonsdale, 
from which he won scholar- 
ships to Christ's College, 
Cambridge. 

At Cambridge he graduated 
in Classics, having specialized 
in Comparative Philology, 
which in itself created a taste 
for Sanskrit studies. 

He subsequently read for 
the Oriental languages Tripos 
graduating with firsts in Pans 
I and II. 

Then followed three years of 
research, one at the School of 
Oriental Studies in London, 
after which he returned to 
Cambridge. He was awarded 
his PhD at Cambridge for a 
thesis on the language of the 
Kharo shti documents discov- 
ered in Central Asia by Sir 
Aurel Stein earlier in the 
century. 

These documents were in a 
previously unrecorded Prakrit 
dialect of North-Western In- 
dia which had been used as the 
official language in Central 
Asia in the post-Kushana 
period. 

From J 935 to J 937 he was a 
Research Fellow of Christ's 
and from 1937 to 1944 he was 


Mr Hugh Kay, editor of the 
Jesuit publication. The 
Month, and a noted writer and 
broadcaster, died on June 14, 
aged 63, after many years of 
coping determinedly with se- 
vere asthma and bronchial 
complications. 

Boro in London in 1923, be 
was educated at St Ignatius' 
College, Stamford HilL and 
then began to train as a Jesuit 
at St Beuno's College, North 
Wales. 

After four years he decided 
that his future lay elsewhere, 
and he entered upon the career 
of Catholic journalism and 
writing to which be was to 
devote the next 40 years. 

These inducted periods as 
Assistant Editor of the Catho- 
lic Herald (1954-65), with an 
interval of two lively editorial 
years (1956-58) on the Scottish 
Catholic Herald. In 1965 he 
became Assistant Editor of 
The Month, and for the last 
ten years he was its first lay 
editor. 

Kay soon impressed upon 
this review of Christian 
thought and world affairs his 
own informed view of nation- 
al. international and religious 


Assistant Keeper in the De- 
partment of Oriental Printed 
Books and Manuscripts at the 
British Museum. There he 
began to study the Dravidian 
languages of India, with which 
few Sanskritists have been 
acquainted. 

In 1944 he was appointed 
Boden Professor of Sanskrit at 
Oxford and Keeper of the 
Indian Institute, a post which 
carried with it a Fellowship at 
Balliol. 

His publications were nu- 
merous. The Language of the 
Kharasthi Documents from 
Chinese Turkestan (1937) and 
a translation of the same 
documents (1940) were the 
fruit of his PbD thesis. 

In 1955 he published The 
Sanskrit Language in foe 
Faber and Faber series “The 
Great Languages." This book, 
of which be . published a 
revised edition in 1973, was 
received with some controver- 
sy. for it was for from conser- 
vative in its views on the 
relations between Sanskrit 
and Indo-European. . 

It will have to be taken into 
account in future genera! 
works on foe Sanskrit lan- 
guage and may prove influen- 
tial. His unorthodox views 
were elaborated in The Prob- 
lem of Shm in Sanskrit 
(1979). 

However, it is above all as a 
Dravidolpgist that Burrow 
will be remembered. In a 
series of field trips to India he 
collaborated with Dr S. 
Bhattacharya of the Anthro- 
pological Survey of India to 
record hitherto virtually un-

issues. And when the Society 
of Jesus in Britain decided on 
the unprecedented step of 
appointing a Jesuit Informa- 
tion Officer, he was the obvi- 
ous appointee. 

In both capacities he was 
widely esteemed as an obliging 
source of information and 
comment on the sometimes 
arcane acti vitiesof the Roman 
Catholic Church, and he in- 
spired affection in many for 
his dogged Christian realism 
and for his patient fellow- 
feeling in exposing his own 
hard-won faith - qualities also 
appreciated in his regular 
domestic and foreign broad- 
casts. including Thought for 
the Day. 

His work as Director of the 
Christian Association of Busi- 
ness Executives was further 
witness' to a practical concern - 
for social realities, as was his 
regular teaching on current 
affairs to African Students in 
London, to whose personal 
care he also quietly devoted 
much of his time and other 
resources. 

And his respect and concern 
for individuals was also to be 
glimpsed not just in an inter-

Collected Papers on Dravid-

which Burrow identified Dra- 
vidian loan words in Sanskrit 
and discussed Dravidian com- 
parative grammar. 

This pioneering work was 
complemented by the books 
he published in collaboration 
with Professor M. B. 
Emeneau: Dravidian Borrow- 
ings from fndo- Aryan 1962 
and the great Dravidian Ety- 
mological Dictionary (1961) 
on which they began work in 
1949. 

Burrow justly regarded the 
latter as ms most ingxurant 
accomplishment and it gave £* 
him great satisfaction to see 
the revised second edition 
published in 1984. He bad 
tong intended it to be his last 
book. 

Burrow was a single minded 
scholar of immense learning 
and complete integrity, inter- 
nationally admired. In 1979 a 
number of the Bulletin of the 
School of Oriental and African 
Studies was devoted to articles 
in his honour. 

He had little time for ad- 
ministrative duties which in- 
terfered with scholarship but 
was always ready to see stu- 
dents. About himself he was 
extremely reticent. 

In 1941 he married Inez

MRS ANBARA SALAM al-KJIALIDI 


Mrs Anbara Satam aJ- 
Khalidi, the eminent Leba- 
nese author and translator, 
and a pioneer campaigner for 
Arab women's rights, has died 
in Beirut at the age of 89. 

Bom in that city in 1897, 
she was the daughter of Salim 
Salam, a prominent Sunni 
Moslem politician and a depu- 
ty in -the Imperial Ottoman 
Parliament. 

She was educated at home 
fry tutors including Sheikh 
Abdallah al-Bustani, foe most 
famous Arabic lexicographer 
and grammarian of the day. 

By foe age of 14 she' was 
writing artides for nationalist 
papers, calling on women to 
play their part in the Arab 
struggle for liberation from 
Turkey. In this 'endeavour die 
was strongly supported by her 
father and her brother, Saeb 
Salam, later to become Prime 
Minister Of Lebanon. 

After the collapse of the 
Turkish Empire and the impo- 
sition of France's rule, Anbara 
Salam continued to call for 
women’s rights in print and at 
meetings. 

In 1 927 she became foe first 
Arab woman in greater Syria 
to unveil her face in public. 
She did this as a deliberate 
feminist gesture white deliver- 
ing an oration at the funeral of 
her former tutor. Sheikh 
BustanL 

This courageous act pro- 
voked both widespread sup- 
port and enormous hostility. 
Women who dared to emulate 
her were insulted and at- 


- tacked. Some had add thrown 
in their faces. She herself had 
to withdraw temporarily from 
public life. 

■ In 1929 she married Ahmad 
. Samih al-Khalidi, Prindpalof 
.. ihe Arab College in Jerusalem 
and Deputy Director of Edu- 
cation in the British adminis- 
tration of Palestine (the 
highest ranking Arab educa- 
tion official during : the 
Mandate). 

The couple formed an out- 
standing literary partnership, 
collaborating on histories of 
Medieval Arab Palestine as 
well as works on modern 
theories of education. 

In the J940s she completed 
her translations of Homer’s 
Wad and Odyssey and of 
Virgil's Aeneid. Of these clas- 
sical epics only the Wad had 
previously been translated 
into Arabic: Published in Cai- 
ro and Jerusalem, all three 
became best-setters. 

They were reprinted marry 
times in Beirut and are still 
studied as set books at univer- 
sities in many Arab countries. 

With foe outbreak of war 
between Jews and Arabs at foe 
end of the Mandate in 1948. 
Anbara arid her husband 
joined foe Arab exodus and 
moved to Lebanon. He died in 
1951- but she continued to 
speak frequently in public. 

In 1978 she ' published a 
book of memoirs, which also 
became a best-seller, also re- 
ceiving academic acclaim. Her 
literary success was founded 
on a vivid yet concise style . 


and a stream of anecdotes, 
beautifully told. 

Petite, bright-eyed with a 
. sunny temperament that sur- 
vived the worst days of 
Lebanon's civil war die re- 
mained optimistic about the 
future both of her country and 
the rote of women within it 

MR D. COLVILLE , 

Mr David Colville, a much 
respected figure in the City of 
London, has died at the age of 
76. 

A friend writes: 

David Richard Colville was 
educated at Harrow and Trin- 
ity College, Cambridge. 

He was recruited by LJoydv 
Bank as one of their firs*- 
graduate entrants, and rose 
before the war to become 
treasurer of the bank. 

At the outbreak of the 
Second World War he joined 
the RNVR and remained with 
it throughout, seeing service at 
one time with foe Free French 
navy. 

After it he was offered a 
partnership in N. M. Roth- 
schild. a signal honour for a 
non-member of the family. 

He remained with the firm 
until his retirement seven 
years ago, becoming a 
recognised specialist in the. 
banking side of the business. ^. 

He also bad a number of 
outside interests, including 
foe deputy chairmanship o? 
Eagle Star and a directorship 
in RTZ. 

He married, in 1933. Ladv

How insects use chemical warfare 





Several animal species, from 
bfg cats is the j angle to 
domestic animats in foe street, 
nse scented chemicals to mark 
out their territories. 

New research shows that 
insects also behave in a some- 
what similar way hot that they 
nse just a trace of various 
molecules to which other spe- 
cies are sensitive for protection 
Of four food supplies. 

Larvae of foe American, 
willow leaf beetle ( Piogtodera ) 
mark the leaves on which they 
feed with an agent which Ss 
repulsive to rival feeders. 

Even fully grown beetles of 
foe- same species avoid adul- 
terated leaves. Dr Michael

simultaneously on the same 
teat 

Moreover, the chemical se- 
creted by foe larvae, called a 
mouoterpene, repels larvae 
from other beetle species. The 
researchers, found .that larvae 
of another willow-dwelling 
beetle, uympbtiBs, vomit when 
exposed to the chemical. 

The scientists also speculate 
that foal is not an act of 
revulsion but' a countermea- 
sure to the chemical secreted 
by the wflldw leaf beetle 
larvae. It amounts to ‘'chemi- 
cal warfare" at entomologicai 
level, they say. 

Bot chemicals are not used 
solely by insects to protect 
their dinner. They are similar 
to foe molecules of scented 
cfaesucab called pheromones, 
which- are secreted in tiny 
amounts by insects to attract 
mates:.;. , ... 


lian and German team has 
helped to identify a number of 
new pheromones produced bx 
foe Australian fruit fly, T 
serious pest which threatens 
tomatoes and other crops 
throughout Australasia. 

The chemicals, called 
spiroacetals, are produced in 
glands located in the rectum of 
the male insect. 

The researchers believe that 
if the chemicals can be pro- 
duced synthetically in greafc* 
amounts, they can be used in 
traps to lore the male insects 
away from their female mates. 
In this way, mating would be 
disrupted, the pest controlled, 
and the crops protected, they 
say.

Television 

Serious 

business 


One of the few non-repeals on 
ITV to escape the pro- 
grammer's dilemma of Pattern 
A and Patton B during the 
World Cop. Ladies in Charge 
(Thames), bowed out with 
Anne Valery's All Thai Gut- 
ters . Or was it a repeat after 
all? For the sixth week run- 
ning, the gamesome threesome 
. got themselves embroiled in a 
quizzical assignment involving 
moral dubiety; for the amp- 
teenth time, Diana's posh 
background was milked for 
irony; and, yet again, the 
inarch of history, was evinced 
by such devices as a one- 
second glimpse of period head- 
lines being used to start a fire. 

Against all this, the specta- 
cle of Irene Worth and Nigel 
Davenport camping tip then* 
White Russian labials over- 
shadowed a sub-Mutder plot 
of hydra-headed duplicity 
which short-circuited some- 
where around the second com- 
mercial break. “I do wish**, 
walled tabs, “they’d take ora' 
work more seriously.*' Hum. 

Did Halle Selassie take his 
work with full-time serious- 
ness? Did he ever (one won- 
ders) take time off for a. game 
of football? In last night's 
Caribbean Nights: Rasta and 
ike Ball (BBC2) his spiritual 
followers in Jamaica were 
shown rehearsing their wizard 
ball-control. When It came to 
explaining the relationship be- 
tween religion and sport, how- 
ever, the programme foun- 
tdcred on that patois which 
brings to mind the delightful 
pictnre of the James Bfl 
being translated in a smoke-' 
filled room. I shall not attempt 
to reproduce Big Youth's ram- 
bling assessment of football's 
role in the life of the right eor 
but it seemed that he was 
talking about seif-expressum. 

The late Bob Marie; was 
more terse: football was **a 
whole universe to itself*; 
“football is freedom". No 
fundam e ntalist cult can sur- 
vive without this kind of off- 
the-cuff reductiontsm, bat the 
second least attractive feature 
of Rastafarianism is its sub- 
lime hippy arrogance: if Jab is 
I is freedom, then presumably 
I is also football — a chum 
unlikely to appeal to the 
majority of World Cup refer- 
ees. The most . unattractive 
feature is that h has laden 
reggae with portentoosness.

THE ARTS 

Theatre in Canada: Irving Wardle visits the Du Maurier 
World Stage, growing from the ashes of the ill-fated Toronto 
Festival, and the Shaw Festival at Niagara-on-the-Lake 

Masterpiece of revivalism 


With due respect to Ontario's Shaw and 
Shakespeare Festivals (both in good 
shape this year), they do not have much 
to tell you' about the state of Canada. As 
the only classical outposts in North 
America, it . is not their business to 
project a specifically Canadian voice. 
One attempt to do this bit the dust six 
years ago in the financially ill-feted 
Toronto Festival; but out of its ashes, so 
to speak, there now appears the Du 
Maurier World Stage — a biennial event, 
incorporated in- the city's 100-acre 
Harbourfront Development 
Launched at the beginning of this 
month in four convened warehouses on 
Queen's Quay, its programme featured 
European work alongside Newfoundland 
satire, . hockey drama from Edmonton 
and Inuit feminism from the Mackenzie 
River Delta. With one night to spare, I 
settled on a Quebec piece called The 
•Dragon's Trilogy playing in a waterfront 
studio. It proved to be a masterpiece. 

Spanning 50 years and seven tinted 
zones, it tells the story of two French 
Canadian girls and of the other lives, 
intimate or casual, that cross their path. 
The style is one of dislocated realism. 
Every encounter offers a moment of 
point-blank actuality in an existence that 
otherwise we know nothing a bom. An 
arrogantly destitute young Englishman 
arrives in town trying to sell shoes. A 
disgusted geisha describes the tastes of 
her western clients. A Chinese laundry- 
man converts his opium den into a 
gambling joint Each case is fascinating, 
and each fades out to give place to the 
next 

The production is the work of ThSfitre 
Repere, a company whose method is to 
approach ideas from the starting-point of 
concrete imagery. Personal stories are 
only incidental to the image of Canada 
itself — represented by a traverse acting 
area strewn with gravel where the action 
unfolds in time and space from pre-war 
Quebec to contemporary Vancouver, 
evoked by actors who are equally at 
borne in French, English and Chinese. 
Lives emerge, vanish and -reappear like 
an extended network of roads and rail 
tracks, briefly intersecting or running in 
parallel, so as to minor the physical 
landscape. It is at once a journey from 
the eastern coast to the Pacific, and from 
social competitiveness towards an inner 
orient 

In such a piece; everything depends on 
the images, and these are of a quality that 
reveals Robert Lepage — the show's 
director and leading actor -!— as a 
magician comparable with the young 
Peter Brook. Isolated examples cannot 
evoke the current of visual invention 
that sweeps the characters along like 


twigs in a river. But one can identify two 
sources of Lepage's power. 

first, his transformations of common- 
place objects — so that a park-keeper’s 
cabin becomes a projection-booth for 
Taoist silhouettes, or a slide-lop table a 
route into the underworld. A constella- 
tion of the night sky laid out on the floor 
becomes, a lighted city when a pilot 
spreadeagles himself above it, miming 
his own aircraft. Secondly, the extended 
scenes have the mercilessness of sym- 
phonic crescendos: as where the compa- 
ny gradually fall into step behind a 
solitary figure marching round the stage 
perimeter, and finally invade the acting 
area to the terror of the civilians 
crouching among their shattered belong- 
ings. This may refer to Canada's harsh 
wartime treatment of its Japanese com- 
munity, but its impact is universal. 

Until the opening of Denise Coffey's 
Bark to Methuselah (with one-day 
performances of all five plays), the main 
event at the Shaw Festival of Niagara- 
on-the-Lake is the return of Christopher 
Newton's acclaimed 1985 production of 
Coward's Cavalcade. With dire memo- 
ries of the Chichester version, I ap- 
proached this occasion with foreboding, 
and emerged partly converted. Despite 
its obsequious brand of stockbroker-belt 
patriotism, the piece does contain some 
good, writing (as where the Mareyotts are 
obliged to drink their victory toast in 
German wine) and, however glib its 
. celebration of the British stuffed shirt, its 
underlying mood is insistently anti- 
jingoistic. Perhaps its virtues are more 
visible to a class-free Canadian director, 
at all events, it has bad an overwhelming 
impact on Canadian audiences, and one ' 
cannot imagine any production that 
made out a better case for the piece. 

Taking Cavalcade as a chapter of 
English history as revealed through a 
group of private' lives, Mr Newton starts 
with tiie assumption that all those lives 
are of equal value; and ignores the fact 
that Coward is patronizing some of 
them. Where Chichester represented the 
English people with docile crowds of 
local residents, the Niagara production is 
so well cast throughout that there are no 
small parts. Every crowd scene is packed 
with individual detail and simultaneous 
action. A hulking officer surveys embar- 
kation on a troop train, impatiently 
watching the parting embraces of those 
on the way to the front; then his own wife 
arrives, and he merges into the crowd as 
yet another ordinary man saying good- 
bye. It is a wordless scene that arouses a 
sequence of violently conflicting emo- 
tions in under a minute. By such means 
is pageantry converted into drama. 
History, meanwhile, is inscribed on a 


set (by Cameron Porteous) consisting of 
two superimposed circles a stage revolve 
and over it a dome-like hemisphere 
serving as a screen for documentary 
projections which, say, at the death of 
Victoria present stills of the actual 
mounting procession above a stage 
representation of the same event 

In 3D evening of salva^ operations, 
nothing is more astonishing than the 
reclamation of Jane MarryotL the arche- 
type of well-bred British womanhood, at 
the hands of Nora McLellan, who — at 
the moment of her spouse's departure to 
face the foreign foe — advises him in bell- 
like tones to “lie down on every possible 
occasion". The first impression is that 
she is sending Jane up through the roof. 
This is not the case. What Miss McLeilan 
has done is to banish the long-suffering 
shadow of Celia Johnson, and substitute 
a spirited, articulate woman, with a 
strongly developed sense of the ridicu- 
lous, who is equally compatible with the 
role. She goes through the action wearing 
a broad smile. Even afler the death of her 
son, she appears in Trafalgar Square 
wearing the same expression, except that 
now she happens to be screaming 

The impression that Mr Newton has 
built up a crack company for the festival 
is strengthened by the other Niagara 
shows. Leon Major's production of Arms 
and the Man, for instance, gets at once to 
the core of the play by showing Raina 
(Donna Goodhand) gorging chocolates 
alone in her bedroom, and then intro- 
duces a magnificent frenzied Sergius 
(Jim Mezon) who really does seem to 
contain six different men fighting it out 
inside his ample uniform. Girl Crazy. 
Gershwin’s 1930 musical about a film 
cowboy who derides to run for sheriff, 
turns out to have an extremely entertain- 
ing book as well as numbers like 
“Embraceable You” and “Delilah**. It 
also has Mary Trainor in the role of the 
night-club queen “Frisco" Kate Folfaer- 
giJl-Gabor who, in the midst of “I Got 
Rhythm”, invades the audience with a 
pair of drumsticks and take it away on 
every piece of resounding metal in the 
house. 

The festival did not strike so lucky 
with Ben Travers's Banana Ridge which, 
after a marvellously enraged opening 
scene (“I’ve just stuffed my wife in a 
taxi” “That’s your affair.’’) subsides to 
the Malayan plantation of Bucket- 
Pissang for two acts fatally divided 
between farce and mild domestic come- 
dy. Altogether Travers’s theme of the 
sexual havoc inadvertently caused by a 
garcon fatal is more amusingly haridted 
in Down and Out in Beverley Hills* which 
was among other comforts laid on by 
British Airways on my return flighL

Leaving Home 

Soho Poly 

Northern family life, as I 
shudderiogly recall iL is rich 
in gags about runaway males: 
a gutless tribe of rabbity 
husbands and misunderstood 
teenagers who slam out of the 
house, vowing never to return, 
and then come crawling back 
as they have forgotten their 
sandwiches and the night is 
turning a bit chilly. There has 
been many a play on this 
topic, usually prompted by 
wish-fulfilment or revenge. 
Julia Kersley's Leaving Home 
is exceptional in being written 
in a spirit of unbiased under- 
standing with no old scores to 
settle. 

Dad, still wearing his car- 
pet-slippers, has walked out 
on the family and vanished 
without trace. We never find 
out much about him. apart 
from the fact that one day he 
suddenly snapped after 25 
years of deadening routine. 
Miss Kersley’s concern is with 
the wife and children he left 
behind: the jobless son and 


widowed daughter, and the 
distracted wife, dazed by hav- 
ing no man to sort the money 
out and nib her back. They 
could stand it if he had 
abandoned them as a form of 
punishment What they can- 
not face is his manifest 
indifference. 

True to northern form, the 
family consists of three long- 
suffering characters and a 
bully — Greta, the eldest 
daughter (by a previous mar- 
riage). a career girl whose 
trouble-making arrivals have 
the others flee for cover. 
Played to the well-tailored, 
brass-lunged life by Rachel 
Davies, she is one of the 
fearsome Lancashire breed 
forever armed with a list of 
tasks for other people to do, 
and who cannot open her 
mouth without judging. 

Having assembled this 
group of northern stereotypes. 
Miss Kersley proceeds to re- 
veal their unsuspected com- 
plexities. Colin, the sup- 
posedly feeble son. disarms 
Greta without a fight: while 
the mother shows a powerful 
sense of regret and pity for the 


daughter she so much dislikes. 
These undercurrents break 
surface when Colin brings in a 
middle-aged down-and-out 
who makes himself useful 
around the house and steps 
into the father’s shoes: a move 
that splits the family in two by 
redoubling Greta's fanatical 
determination to track down 
her beloved parent 

The plot hinges on a revela- 
tion which would surely have 
been woundinglv familiar to 
Greta even if he had never 
walked out Otherwise, the 
play delivers a sensitive and 
sometimes blisteringly funny 
account of the habits, compro- 
mises and hungers thatjjgo 
under the name of family love. 
From Bridget Turner's fragile 
but implacable mother to 
Ewan Hooper as the domesti- 
cally rehabilitated intruder, 
the piece gets stunning perfor- 
mances from Brian Stirner's 
cast: not to mention an interi- 
or and exterior set by Douglas 
Heap which enables you to 
visit the family along their 
own gravel patb up to the 
front door.

Celebration of generosity 


Northern Ballet 

Alhambra, Bradford 

Who could have guessed, 
when RudolfNureyev decided 
to settle in the West, that he 
would be celebrating the twen- 
ty- fifth anniversary of that 
momentous choice in Brad- 
. ford? His presence is a tribute 
! to the city's splendidly re- 
stored Alhambra Theatre, to 
the enterprise of Northern 
Ballet and to the complete 
absence of snobbery* in a man 
to whom an audience to be 
entertained is equally worth- 
while anywhere in the world. 

For the occasion he chose to 
dance not only Jean in Miss 
Julie, a role which suits his gift 
for drama in dance, but also a 
lyrical ballet that he made 
uniquely his own as a young 
man and has not danced for 
some years, Les Sylphides. • 
You must not look now for' 
ihe/oari ng cabrioles and fleat- 
} ing grands jette of bis youth 
(and he adopted for the fust 
time the usual western solo, 
replacing the Russian one he 


formerly preferred), but his 
entrechats are -still high and 
.clean. More to the point, he 
still has a sense of this toilet's 
romantic style which nobody 
else has rivalled. That amaz- 
ingly poised, rounded atti- 
tude; that long low arabesque, 
are signatures of bis Kirov 
training and also of his own 
individual understanding of 
the ballet. 

Northern Ballet Theatre has 
a good production of this 
work; staged for ft by Alicia 
Markova. It is well danced by 
a careful, mainly rather 
young-looking corps de ballet 
and by three excellent leading 
women, Evelyne Desutter m 
the mazurka solo and as 
Nnreyev's chief partner, Syl- 
vie Guillaumin in the prelude 
and Daniels Busoa notable for 
the brio and warmth of her 
waltz sola 

Desutter took the title part 
in Miss Julie (as powerful- a 
performance as we have come 
to expect from them), and the 
other two women were seen 
also in Ancient Airs and 
Dances, a ballet by Michael 
Corder receiving its warmly! 


applauded premiere.The mu- 
sic is a selection, seven pieces 
in all. from Respighi’s three 
suites based on 16th- and early 
17th-century Italian lute mu- 
sic, arranged for small orches- 
tra by the company's con- 
ductor. Robin Barker. 

With his cast of four princi- 
pals and four supporting cou- 
ples dressed by Charles 
Maude in designs after Botti- 
celli, Corder has devised 
dances which add a spice of 
period flavour to the basic 
ballet technique. . 

At just one point, a villanel- 
2a for Guillaumin with Michel 
Mesnier. Corder allows hints 
of personal emotion: a head 
leant on a hand, a gracious 
bow. Otherwise the dances are 
all formal extrovert sociable: 
nicely varied in mood, pace 
and numbers too. The final 
bergamasca, started by Mar- 
cello Angelini with others 
gradually joining in. alone 
displays the foil cast It makes 
an attractive work, showing 
the company at strength.

Conceits 

RPO/Dorati 

Festival Hall 

Isaac Stem is not one of those 
violinists who could be called 
conservative: a week from 
today he is to play Peter 
Maxwell Davies’s new Violin 
Concerto, especially written 
for him, in this very halL In 
this concert of the Andre 
Previn Music Festival, how- 
ever, he chose to play safe, if 
safe Bruch's G minor Violin 
Concerto really is. On two 
counts I rather doubt it 
First, of course, there is the 
small matter of the technical 
problems it poses, though with 
a man like Stem in command 
there is little danger that these 
will not be solved. But even he 
cannot overcome the second 
hazard. For, despite its su- 
perbly idiomatic writing, in 
the end this is a composition 
which lacks real creative fer- 
vour. Although the tune of the 
middle movement is undeni- 
ably sweet and memorable, it 
does nowadays cloy a little, 
while the pre-echoes of 
Brahms in the finale only 
emphasize further Bruch's rel- 
ative impotence as a compos- 
er. And the concerto does take 
a little while to get going. 

How fortunate it is to have 
an artist like Stem to serve iL 
Playing garnished by such a 
gorgeous tone as bis is anyway 
rewarding for itself, while the 
Royal Philarmonic Orchestra, 
conducted by AntaJ Dorati, 
was obviously as unwilling as 
the audience to entertain a 
mere critic's uncharitable mis- 
givings. But there are more. I 
am afraid, for Franck's D 
minor Symphony is another 
immensely popular piece that 
one finds peculiarly difficult 
to swallow without some 
discomfort 

Dorati conducted it as it 
should be conducted, -with a 
fervour unquestioning of its 
brashness, its developmental 
awkwardnesses. The central 
movement was taken fairly 
fast which meant that the cor 
anglais solos thus came across 
with slightly less sentimental- 
ity than usual The harpist's 
contributions were unusually 
crisp and dear, while the brass 
and strings seemed to enjoy 
every big tune to the folL 
It was slightly sad that the 
most rewarding piece in the 
programme. Haydn's Sym- 
phony No 104, should have 
been spoilt by the occasional 
infelicity, most seriously at the 
end of the Andante, where a 
bassoonist tragically mis- 
counted. temporarily throw- 
ing the ensemble into disarray. 
Never mind, for the outer 
movements were grippingly 
exuberant as if conducted by 
a man half Dorati's age- 

Stephen Pettitt 


Ivo Pogorelich 

Barbican 


It is sad, unnerving even, to 
watch an artist who, at the age 
of 28, has it seems said all 
there is to say. With scarcely 
the will to propel his body on 
to the stage, let alone the 
desire to move or be moved. 
Ivo Pogorelich languidly 
inched his way through Mon- 
toy night's recital of Beetho- 
ven, Bach, Chopin and 
Schumann. 

Pogorelich has simply spent 
himself, exhausted by what his 
biography boasts as a “packed 
schedule of recital totes”: or 
this literal world-weariness is 
being worn as yet another 
mask to disguise the deep 
ennui which he clearly feels 
with the whole business of 
music-making. There is no 
hiding-place from boredom,, 
only temporary cover. But 
Pogorelich is not without a 
handful of ingenious methods 
of exploiting iL 

The first is to realize that 
languor itself can have its 
charm. This he revealed in a 
winsomely contrived render- 
ing of Beethoven’s “Fur Elise” 
which, in retrospecL was quite 
the best thing in the entire 
evening. It was played as one 
long recurring wave of half- 
tone. hypnotic in its pattern- 
ing. firesh in its central major 
song. 

The second is to turn myo- 
pically away from the score 
and towards , the instrument 
itself. At first Beethoven’s 
Sonata No* 27 in E minor 
seemed to reflect imaginative- 
ly what the composers own 
reaction might have been if 
faced with an instrument as 


advanced in acoustic technol- 
ogy as the Barbican's Stein- 
way. But a sense of wonder at 
its palette of tone-colour, at 
the vast distances it is P 9 ssible 
to travel between pianissimo 
and fortissimo, begins to pall 
after a while. It would be hard 
to imagine a more joyless 
release into the last move- 
ment's erstwhile regenerating 
song. 

Given that exactly the same 
anaesthetizing principles were 
applied indiscriminately to 
Chopin's Third Scherzo and a 

S ly ill-phrased Schumann 
?s syniphoniques. there 
remained' one last bolt-hole. If 
the composer’s own invention 
is felt to flag, then one can 
simply replace his artefact 
with artifice of one’s own. 

So it was in Bach's Third 
English Suite. The intricate 
cross-patterning of entries and 
rhythmic disposition in Pre- 
lude and Gigue was flattened 
out to accommodate Pogo- 
relich’s own gawky, hurtling 
accentuation. while the gar- 
gantuan centra] Saraband be- 
came a most skilfully 
controlled exercise in the 
grotesque. 

Hilary Finch 


Medici Quartet 

Elizabeth Hall 

Rather much of the Medici 
Quartet’s programme on 
Monday night in the Royal 
Philharmonic Orchestra’s 
continuing Andre Previn Mu- 
sic Festival was pitched in 
different tones of melancholy. 
Sensibly th^ started with 
Britten's Third Quartet, his 
last major work, so that the 
haunting final movement 
with its valedictory spirit and 
associations with Death in 
1 1 mice ; could also be enjoyed 
for the freshness of its musical 
invention. 

ft is good that such ensem- 
bles are taking this work into 
their repertories, as its five 
movements traverse such a 
wealth of musical motivation, 
in a direction that was newt for 
Britten, perhaps because ofhis 
physical condition. It was a 
perceptive, balanced perfor- 
mance that we heard, but 
making less than might have 
been hoped of the dramatic 
contrasts to be found within 
each movement as well as in 
Iheir sequence. 

Milhaud expressed a more 
conventional lament for the 


death of a poet friend in his 
Third QuaneL which involves 
a sombre meandering among 
adjacent tones for a whole 
movement followed by a set- 
ting of one of the poems. 
Christine Cairns was an ex- 
pressive soloist so far as it 
went, making me wonder why 
nobody seems to think, in the 
context of a singer with siring 
quartet, of Respighi’s much 
more rewarding ll iramonto, 
based on Shelley. 

Miss Cairns joined Imogen 
Cooper at the piano as well as 
the siring players for yet more 
but briefer lamentation of a 
deserted woman in Chaus- 
son's Chanson pcrpetuelle, 
beautifully sung, and the pia- 
nist then remained to partake 
of Franck's Piano Quintet in a 
romantically reflective perfor- 
mance. It offered easy enough 
listening as a modest return 
for ensemble playing of con- 
sidered character.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JUNE 1! 



Hurd moves to 
end misuse of 
police computer 

By Richard Evans, Political Correspondent 


Mr Douglas Hunt Home 
Secretary, yesterday ordered a 
lightening of the use of the 
police national computer, 
which stores details of every 
vehicle owner in Britain. 10 
prevent abuse by the police. 

His action follows an inves- 
tigation into the BP number 
plate competition when a 
number of officers used the 
computer based at Hendon to 
tip off car owners whose 
registration numbers had been 
selected at random by the oil 
company, thereby enabling 
them to win thousands of 
pounds in prizes. 

During a 1 0-month inquiry 
by the independent Police 
Complaints Authority three 
officers resigned and a further 
19 face or have been through 
disciplinary hearings. 

No evidence was found of 
any officer receiving money 
for supplying information to 
potential winners. 

But a report published by 
the authority yesterday pin- 
pointed the need to eliminate 
“illegitimate transactions” 
and produced a number of 
recommendations. 

It insisted that the climate 
of public and parliamentary 
opinion demanded that access 


to ihe police computer should 
be capable of being monitored 
and validated. 

Mr Hurd said yesterday he 
was drawing the authority's 
report to the attention of all 
Chief Constables. 

The Police National Com- I 
puter Board will discuss ihe- 
authority's proposals with the 
Association of Chief Police 
Officers and the Inspectorate 
of Constabulary “to deter- 
mine what further action is 
nsquired„to ensure that mis- 
use of the computer facility 
does not occur again." 

The report revealed that 
instructions for use of the 
computer varied considerably 
from force to force and it 
produced a set of guidelines 
which should be applied 
nationwide. 

It stressed that access to 
personal data on the computer 
must be permitted only for 
bona fide police duties “and 
personal or private use must 
be strictly forbidden.” 

Random sampling of re- 
quests for information from 
the computer is proposed, 
together with accurate record- 
ing of police officers who ask 
for information and those who 
handle requests.

Principals 
attack new 
education 
legislation 

The heads of secondary 

schools have launched a sharp 
attack on toe Education Bill, 
urging MPs to reject much of 

,L Tbe Secondary Heads Asso- 

ciation has written to MPs 
asking them to reject the 
clauses covering sex educa- 
tion. corpora J punishment, 
political bias in leaching and 
the role of police in schools. 

The association, which rep- 
resents most secondary school 
heads, said the Government's 
move to force schools to 
“have due regard to moral 
considerations and the value • 
of family life" in sex lessons 
suggested that such qualities > 
were not already present. 

**For any Government to - 
instruct schools how to teach 
an individual subject is totally 
oat of character with the * 
English tradition — and fire 
these reasons toe clause 
should be rejected,” the asso- 
ciation said. 

Opposition to Whitehall in- 
terference in the classroom is 
also cited as the justification 
fire contesting the BilTs provi- 
sion to “forbid the promotion 
of partisan views” when deal- 
ing with political issues. 

The association said the 
Government's attempt in the 
Bill — which is now at the 
committee stoge in toe House 
of Commons — to leave toe 
use ofcorporal punishment np 
to individual schools rather & 
than abolish it, would be 
unworkable and would create 
two classes of pupfi. 

The heads say corporal 
punishment should be 
scrapped in line with a Euro- 
pean Court judgment. • 

On toe role of police, the 
association objects to the Bid 
mentioning only the chief 
police officer when referring to 
community Agencies to be 
consulted regarding noo-aca- : 
demic aspects of schooling. 

Mr Peter Snape, tbe 
association’s generaT secre- 
tary, said: “These clauses are . 
full of problems for the future '* 

. . .The Bill is beginning to 
look like a tattered portman- 
teau of prejudices and wretch- 
ed compromises to satisfy 
party members, instead of a 
genuine attempt at much- 
needed reform."

Dixons 
promises 
success 

By AGson Eadie 

Dixons Group last night 
issued its offer document de- 
tailing its increased and final 
£1.8 billion bid for Woolworth 
Holdings which h said offers a 
huge exit price-earnings multi- 1 
pie of 303" times. 

It insisted that its bid would 
not be like other recent retail 
takeovers and mergers, which 
have suffered from . disap- 
pointing share performances, 
but' that it would be strikingly 
similar to the successful take- 
over of Currys. 

The document revealed that 
Currys' profit, before interest 
charges connected with the' 
takeover, doubled to £45.3 
rrifllion in 1985-86 from £22.5 
million. 

Dixons also provided more 
information about Operation 
Ramrod, its plan for the 
Wool worth stores. The num- 
ber of stores will be reduced to 
650 from 81 1 and the average 
scOing space to. 7,500 sq ft 
from 8.900 sq ft 

_ Currys? , stores will be in- 
creased to 6J0 from 523, with 
average space rising to 3,300 
sq ft from 1350 sq ft, and 
Dixons* stores will be in- 
creased to 470 from 290 with 
average space rising to 2300 
sq ft from 2,000 sq it • 
-Ramrod will also seek to 
improve the merchandise, and 
addio the range and density dF 
products sold by Wool worth. 
Dixons claims that Wool- 
worth is understocked and 
overspaced. 

It wants to compress Wool- 
worth to 5 million sq ft from 7 
million sq ft, and to give the 2 
million sq ft to Dixons and 
Currys. Currys will then ex- 
pand into areas like cooking 
and heating appliances* 

Other plans include intro- 
ducing a Woolworth credit 
card to keep customers com- 
ing back, and an electronic 
point-of-sale system. Dixons 
estimates the .cost of this 
system at between £1 6 million 
and £20 million on the basis of, 
one till per 1,000 sq .ft of 
selling space. 

Dixons again took the op- 
portunity to criticize the 
Woolworth management for 
making a "premature profit 
forecast" when, in May last 
year the then chairman of 
Woolworth. Mr John Beckdx 
said it was too early in the year 
to save- any firm view of the 
prospects for the year as a 
whole. Woolworth is fiercely 
resisting the bid. 


Myson bids for Biddle 


Myson Group, the heating 
and ventilation company 
based in Ongar, Essex, is 
making a 1 70p-a-share bid for 
Biddle Holdings— topping the 
agreed 1 6 Op offer from Kone 
of Finland. 

Myson’s -offer values Lon- 
don-based Biddle's ordinary 
share capital at £6.8 million 
and will include a loan note 
alternative. There is also an 


offer of IOOp cash for each 7 
per cent preference share, 
which matches Kone’s terms. 

But Myson’s offer is condi- 
tional on the defeat of a 
resolution which will be pro- 
posed at an adjourned extraor- 
dinary meeting of Biddle 
concerning the sale of the 
heating companies ton com- 
pany controlled by members 
of the Biddle family.

By David South, Economics Correspondent 


The public sector borrowing 
requirement was £1.1 billion 
last month, below the average 
of market expectations. The 
figure, coming after the sharp 
rise in money supply an- 
nounced last week, reassured 
the City. 

Analysis said that a large 
PSBR last month, coming on 
top of the 3 per cent rise m 
sterling M3 in the May bank- 
ing month, would have im- 
plied a loss of control for fiscal 
and monetary policy. 

The PSBR of £M billion 
compared with £867 million 
in April The cumulative total 
for the first two months of the 
1986-87 financial year was 
£1.9 billion, against £2.7 bil- 
lion in the corresponding peri- 
od of 1985-86. 

Treasury officials believe 
that, while it is very early in 
the financial year, the figures 
are consistent with the Chan- 
cellor’s PSBR target of £7.1 
billion for 1986-87. 

In the first five months of 
the year the PSBR totalled £81 


million compared with £2.6 
billion, partly boosted by the 
coal strike, last year. 

The central Government 
borrowing requirement was 
£2.6 billion last month. There 
was a £1.1 billion net repay- 
ment by the local authorities 
and a £0.4 billion repayment 
by the public corporations. 

Revenues, particularly Cus- 
toms and Excise receipts, are 
running ahead strongly. Last 
month they totalled £3.36 
billion, nearly 10 per cent up 
on a year earlier, and outstrip- 
ping the 6 per cent rise in the 
value of retail sales. 

Inland Revenue receipts 
were £3.69 billion, well down 
on April but just above the 
£3.57 billion ofMay+98^.G^ 
firials said non-oil revenues 
remained strong. 

There is evidence in the 
figures to support Govern- 
ment, chums that public 
spending is under controL 
Supply spending is running 
about 1 per cent above its level 
a year ago, with no sign of any 
acceleration.

RFD talks 
to second 
‘saviour’ 

By Richard Lander 

The RFD industrial group 
made it dear yesterday that it 
was still making a last-minute 
effort to fight off Waidle 
Storeys, the plastic sheeting 
manufacturer, even though its 
non-executive directors last 
week recommended accep- 
tance of Wardle’s £29 million 
takeover offer. 

RFD said it was still holding 
talks with a third party which 
could lead to a higher bid. The 
unnamed bidder is thought to 
be BBA Group, which bought 
Automotive Products for £98 
million in January. RFD’s 
banker. Kleinwort Benson, 
was said to be scouring the 
City last night for irrevocable 
acceptances from institutional 
shareholders. 

At the same time. Scapa 
Group, the industrial products 
maker and RFD's original 
white knight, announced it 
was dropping its £27 million 
bid and signing an option with 
Wardle that would allow the 
two companies to carve up 
RFD if the Wardle bid 
succeeded. 

News of the rival offer 
helped RFDsharesjump6pto 
208. just above Wardle's 16- 
for-25 share offer which val- 
ues RFD shares at 2P3p with a 
cash alternative of 205p. 

Under the terms of 
yesterday's option agreement, 
Wardle can sell RFD's textiles 
and cable components divi- 
sions to Scapa until the end of 
the year for £14.5 million. 
Another option, structured 
differently for tax purposes, 
stretches from November 30 
to next March 31 and allows 
Scapa to buy these businesses 
for £15.5 million. 

The deal allows both Scapa 
and Wardle to end up with 
what they wanted from RFD. 

The divisions under option 
to Scapa made a trading profit 
of £1.8 million in 1985/86 on 
turnover of £15.4 million. If 
excersised. the deal would 
leave Wardle paying about 
£14.5 million for a company 
which made £1.1 million, last 
year on sales of £26 million. 


Hill Samuel in 
$100m issue 

Hill Samuel yesterday an- 
nounced the issue of Si 00 
million (£66 million) in float- 
ing rale notes on the Eurodol- 
lar market despite a claim two 
weeks ago that capital was 
adequate for its needs. 

Mr Dolf Mootham, the 
group's finance director, said 
the group's capital require- 
ments had not changed since 
two weeks ago when it an- 
nounced its results for last 
year. The new issue was 
simply taking advantage of 
unusually favourable market 
conditions and no more capi- 
tal was likely to be raised this 
year. 

The new issue carries a 30 
year maturity to 201 6 and has 
a series of stepped interest 
rates during its life. 


Pretoria spending package 
aims to restore growth 


By Our Economics Correspondent 


The South African Govern- 
ment yesterday announced a 
package of refiationary mea- 
sures designed to restore 
growth and boost badly fiag- 
gng confidence. 

. Mr Barend dn Plessis, the 
finance minister, tmvefled a 
1.2 billion rand (£295 million) 
package of spending mea- 
sures, a target of relief for 
industry and removal of im- 
port surcharges. In addition, 
the 1980 loan levy of R292 
million fs to be repaid to 
companies and individuals. 

The package, which was 
expected, comes at a tune 
when, in addition to the loss of 
overseas confidence and a 
collapse in the of tfie 
rand — the financial rand has 
been as low as 21 US cents — 
growth, in the economy has 
disappeared. 

Gross domestic product in 
the first quarter fell at an 
annnalized rate of 1-5 percent, 
compared with a growth rate 


in the second half of last year 
of 35 per cent. 

The official growth target, 
of a 3 per emit rise in gross 
domestic product this year, 
had begun to look very opti- 
mistic. The current account 
surplus, R11.9 billion in the 
fourth quarter of last year, feU 
to R1.8 billion in the first 
quarter, Mr do Plessis said. 

And, despite the slnggish- 
ness in the economy, inflation 
continues to nm at high levels. 
In April the rate was 18.6 per 
cent. 

Mr do Plessis's claim that 
the stimulatory package will 
restore growth to 3 per cent, 
ensure a healthy current ac- 
count surplus and allow infla- 
tion to come down was greeted 
with some scepticism. 

One London analyst de- 
scribed the package as an 
exercise in public relations. 

The Association of Sooth 
African Chambers of Com- 
merce said that the package 


would help rebuild business 
confidence, but that bolder 
measures were needed. 

It is dear, however, that the 
South African government is 
hemmed in financially as 
much as it is politically. 
Capital outflows feU from R5 
billion in the fourth quarter of 
last year to 827 million in the 
first quarter, figures published 
yesterday showed. 

But outflows are certain to 
have increased substantially in 
recent weeks, as the country's 
political problems have ap- 
proached crisis pointThe be- 
haviour of the financial rand 
suggests that the scale of 
disinvestment could have been 

substantial. 

Yesterday, in response to 
the package, the rand was 
marked higher. The commer- 
cial rand, which hit a low point 
of 35 US cents last week, 
climbed above 40 cents. The 
financial rand closed at 24 
cqnts- 


Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 


Rowland accusations 
under fresh scrutiny 


For 15 months The Observer has 
been campaigning in support of the 
claim that the acquisition last year of 
the House of Fraser and Harrods by 
the three AJ-Fayed brothers was not 
financed by them but by the Sultan of 
Brunei. The evidence it has repeatedly 
promised has however not been 
forthcoming. It has also been sug- 
gested with equal vehemence that the 
Al-Fayeds’ path was unfairly 
smoothed by the Government's de- 
cision not to refer their bid to the 
Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission. 

The Observer’s targets are thus not 
confined to Mohamed, Salah and Ali 
Al-Fayed. They include the Prime 
Minister and her son, Mark Thatcher, 
past and present Cabinet ministers, 
the Director General of Fair Trading, 
KJeinwort Benson, the merchant bank 
which acts for the AJ-Fayeds, and 
olhersjn what apparently seems to 
them the greatest miscarriage of 
natural justice since Adam was de- 
prived of Eden: the failure of Lonrho 
to acquire House of Fraser. “Tiny”, of 
course, is best known as the executive 
head, body, heart and brains of 
Lonrho. He also controls The 
Observer. 

Although to those not immediately 
concerned The Observer’s repetitive 
attacks on the Al-Fayeds are tedious 
in their predictability, the issues 
involved are serious, not least for the 
newspaper itself. Late last night on 
the initiative of Tim Smith, Conserva- 
tive MP for Beaconsfield, the role of 
the independent directors was due to 
be debatkl — an iniative that appears 
to have prompted those three Socialist 
scourges of the unacceptable face of 
capitalism, Brian Sedgemore (Hack- 
ney and Shoreditch), Dennis Skinner 
(Bolsover) and Dale Campbell-Sav- 
ours (Workington), to put down mo- 
tions censuring Mr Smith and Sir El- 
don Griffiths, Conservative MP for 
Bury St Edmunds, for attempting “to 
censure and and silence The Observ- 
er” in reporting the takeover of House 
of Fraser, After Parliament has had its 
say, 'the court is likely to follow. On 
Friday a judge in chambers decided 
the Al-Fayeds’ application for an in- 
juction restraining The Observer from 
repeating certain allegations against 
them should be “dealt with expedi- 
tiously”. 

The Observer’s attacks against the 
three brothers, in particular the head 
of the family, Mohamed, range from 
the colourful to the lurid. “Mark That- 
cher's mystery trip to see Sultan’* 
(January 12); “Fayeds called to ac- 
count on loans'* (by whom? The Ob- 
server naturally: May 4); “Mark That- 
cher and guru clues to Harrods deal” 
(May 18) — which claimed “powerful 
new evidence” that Mark Thatcher 
had visited Brunei with Mohamed AJ- 
Fayed "at a crucial lime in the Har- 
rods battle. The Observer is in posses- 
sion of a certificate, signed by the Per- 
manent Secretary in the Ministry of 
Home Affairs in Brunei, confirming 
the visit.” 

The authenticity of the certificate is 
vigorously denied, and by the man 
concerned. Dato Ali Daud, as was the 


alleged visit to Brunei in October 
1984. 

It is rare for the character of public 
figures to be constantly assailed in this 
way. It is also extremely serious. As 
lago shrewdly observed: 

Good name in man or woman, dear 
my lord. 

Is the immediate jewel of their souk 
Who steals my purse steals trash; ’ lis 
something, nothing; 

Twas mine, 'lis his. and has been slave 
to thousands; 

But he that filches from me my good 
name 

Robs me of that which not enriches 
him. 

And makes me poor indeed. 

The kernel of Mr Rowland's case is 
that the Al-Fayeds, maintaining that 
they were acting for themselves in bid- 
ding for House of Fraser and not as 
nomimees for the Sultan, had deliber- 
ately deceived the Department of 
Trade, the Office of Fair Trading and 
the Takeover Panel when obtaining 
their various approvals to proceed 
with the bid. ' 

Leon Brittan, Secretary of State at 
the Department of Trade at the time, 
wrote to Sir Edward du Cann at Lon- 
rho in November “You have provid- 
ed no evidence to support these asser- 
tions. Mr Rowland has claimed to the 
Director General of Fair Trading that 
he has evidence but, in response to a 
request of the Director General, has 
declined to make it available.” 

The Sultan and the Prime Minister 
are not his only lines of attack. He has 
alleged that scheming ministers and 
officials effectively prevented Lonrho 
from bidding for House of Fraser 
against the Al-Fayeds. thus delivering 
it to them on a plate. This is an 
attempt to rewrite history. 

Lonrho’s account was completely 
rejected by Norman Tebbit, then the 
Minister responsible, in a letter to Sir 
Edward du Cann on June 12. 

Tiny’s real fury however is, or 
should be. directed against himself. 
His errors of judgment, his miscal- 
culations, delivered House of Fraser 
to the Al-Fayeds. 

The subsequent accusations against 
the Al-Fayeds raise important ques- 
tions about the way in which they can 
be made and the effectiveness of the 
forms of redress available to the 
victims. 

“My brothers and I,” Mohamed Al- 
Fayed wrote in a letter m January to 
various members of the House of 
Lords, “are foreign nationals, who 
have chosen to make substantial in- 
vestments in the United Kingdom for 
a value in excess of one billion 
pounds, and have procured very sub- 
stantial orders for British manufactur- 
ed goods and equipment We have 
done this not only because we believe 
strongly in the strength of the invest- 
ments we have made and the quality 
of the goods, the orders for which we 
have procured, but because we admire 
British institutions and feel that the 
United Kingdom has a continuing 
stability because of them.” 

In this extraordinary affair of 
Lonrho and House of Fraser, we are 
not showing the qualities for which, it 
would appear, we are still admired. 


Charities 
‘could 
do better’ 

By Cliff Fehham 

Most of Britain's leading; 
charities invest wisely, accord-! 
ingto a report released yester- 
day. but some could do a lot 
better. Their investments 
earned 1 5.5 per cent last year, 
slightly better than the 14.4 
per cent achieved by the coun- 
try’s big pension funds. 

The figures, compiled by the 
WM Company, formerly the 
computer services arm of the 
stockbrokers Wood Macken- 
zie. analysed the performance 
of 53 fends with assets worth 
more than £! billion. 

Money available to these 
funds, which are managed by 
professional advisers, varied 
rom more than £100 million 
to- £500.000. and included 
funds banned from investing 
in certain areas because of 
legal or ethical restraints. 

“Although the survey shows 
an average return of more 
than 1 5 per cent there was a 
wide difference in results — 
some fends got more than 22 
per cent while others made 
only 10.5 per cent,” WM said. 

It feels one of the benefits of 
the survey is that it will pro- 
vide a benchmark of perform- 
ance by which the trustees of 
charities can gauge the effi- 
ciency of their advisers. 

“Inevitably, the funds cov- 
ered by our survey tend to be 
the larger ones. The evidence 
suggests that many of the 
smaller funds, of which there 
are probably hundreds, do not 
measure up to anything like 
the performance achieved in 
the survey, which should 
hopefully keep charities on 
their toes." 

The survey shows that UK 
equities produced the highest 
returns last year - 18.6 jjer 
cent - with overseas equities 
showing a return of 1 1.6 per 
cent *

New York (Renter) — Wall 
Street shares poshed higher in 
moderate early trading yester- 
day amid new indications of a 
weak economy. 

The US Commerce Depart- 
ment said that boosing starts 
fell 7.4 per cent in May, a 
bigger drop than expected. 
The latest indication of a 
sluggish economy raised hopes 
for a discount rate cut. 

The Dow Jones industrial 
average, which rose six points 
to 1.S77 shortly after the 


opening, trimmed its rise to 
3.92 at 1,875.69 about an hoar 
and a half later. 

The transport average was 
up 0.62 at 787.25. with the 
utilities indicator up 0.33 af 
189.23 and the broader 65 
stocks average up 1.07 at 
718.28. 

But the New York Stock 
Exchange composite index 
slipped 0.06 at 141.11, with 
Standard & Poor's composite 
index down 0 JO at 245.83.

Magnet plant draws 
profits for Oxford 


Oxford Instnsmems has not year, underpinning a pretax 
always been well understood . profit forecast of about £22 
by the City. When hi-tech million for the year to next 
electronic companies saw March. The shares look fairly 
their markets turn sour and valued on a multiple of just 
their shares fall out of favour, over 13. 

Oxford Instruments found 

that its shares were tarred Cape Industries 
with the same brush. 

Certainly, it is a hi-tech Compared with a year ago. 
company, but a very special- Cape Industries' balance sheet 
ized one. Half its turnover ‘ has now been restored. Bor- 
and profit comes from the rowings are down from £42.5 


manufacture and supply of 
magnetic resonance imaging 
(MR1) magnets for use in 
body scanners. With between 
65 and 75 per cent of the 
market, it makes more 
magnets than all its competi- 
tors put together. 

The rest of its business is in 
the supply of specialized low 
temperature equipment and 
superconducting magnet sys- 
tems for research purposes, 
and the supply of patient 
monitoring equipment, espe- 
cially in ECG. 

It is also involved in a joint 
venture with Furukawa Elec- 
tric to supply magnets for the 
emerging Japanese scanner 
market 

During 1985, the company 
started producing magnets at 
its new plant at Eyn&ham. 
Oxford, the world's most 
advanced MRI magnet pro- 
duction facility. The success 
of this move is reflected in its 
results for the year to March 
30 1986 announced 

yesterday. 

Volumes increased across 
all its businesses, and over- 
heads -were contained. But 
the biggest single contributor 
to the 88 per cent jump in 
pretax profit to £17.2 million 
was the benefit of a full-year's 
operation of the new plant, 
which is both efficient and 
low-cost. 

The main criticism levelled 
at Oxford Instruments is that 
it is overdependent on a 
single market where it feces 
competition from its own 
customers who could make 
the magnets themselves. Its 
strategy to meet this threat is 
to invest in development, to 
engineer costs down and keep 
maigins up. 

The company is continuing 
to work closely with universi- 
ties, always looking for new 
ideas to develop profitably. It 
is financially strong and de- 
spite having 90 per cent of its 
sales overseas, it minimizes 
its exposure to currency risk 
by forward purchasing. 

Its order book across the 
range is full, and ahead of last - 


million to £12.8 million and 
shareholders funds have re- 
covered by £10 million to £32 
million. For a company which 
not that long ago had to be 
rescued, a gearing of 40 per 
cent is positively respectable. 

Of course the company has 
not achieved all this without a 
bit of help. The convertible 
preference share issue brought 
in about £9 million with a 
simitar amount from the sale 
of the automotive compo- 
' nents business to BBA. But it 
is encouraging that the trading 
companies' themselves man- 
aged a £6.7 million reduction 
in debL 

Trading is also reasonably 
encouraging. The figures pub- 
lished yesterday are in com- 
parison wifo a IS month 
period but on a yearly com- 
parison building products was 
up by 12 per cent to £6.5 
million and contacting by 
aboutaquarler to £511.000. 

Butwhiletbereorganizaiion 
at building products is now 
virtually complete, the return 
forindustrialcontractingon its 
£82 million turnover is still 
miserable. Further provisions 
had to be taken above the line 
in the second half on problem- 
atic historic contracts. The 
newly found emphasis on 
margins rather than sales is 
long overdue but unfortunate- 
ly comes at a time when the oil 
price is inevitably impacting 
on the amount work at power 
stations and in the petrochem- 
ical industry. 

With the hope that Cape has 
now turned the corner and can 
look forward to a profitable 
asbestos and insulation free 
future, the dividend is being 
restored after a two year gap. 
Cape’s shares gained I p to 78p 
but both the price and the 
company both look set for a 
period of consolidation

Abaco buys Toplis and 
Harding for £12.2m 


Abaco Investments, the rap- 
idly growing financial services . 
and property group, is buying 
Toplis and Harding, a leading 
insurance loss adjuster, for 
£12.2 million. 

It is funding the acquisition 
via a one-for-four rights issue 
to raise £14.2 million net. 

An additional £5-5 million 
net is being raised by the issue 
of 10 million shares to The 
British & Commonwealth 
Shipping Co- which will in- 
crease B & Cs Abaco stake to 
21 percent from 16.3 percent. 
B & C is paying 56p a share for 
its 10 million shares, a premi- 
um to the market price and a 
7p premium to the rights issue 
price. 

Mr Peter Goldie, chief exec- 
utive or Abaco. said that Mr 
John Gunn, a non-executive 
director of Abaco and a direc- 
tor of B & C, was keen for B & 
C to raise its stake but. with 


Abaco slock being tightly held, 
it was felt fairer to other 
shareholders to charge a 
premium. • 

Toplis. which has 80 offices 
in 28 countries, made taxable 
profits of£1.4 million in 1985.' 

Abaco believes — as with its 
recent purchase of the char- 
tered surveyor, Anthony 
Brown Stewart — that it can 
provide capital for expansion. 
It also believes that there are j 
good opportunities to buy ] 
more loss adjusters. 

Abaco's acquisition pro- 
gramme shows no signs of 
slowing and, with more than 
£10 niOlion cash in hand and 
no gearing, it could go for a 
much larger target. It is still 
seeking an insurance broker to 
round off its package of ser- 
vices to housebuyers and it 
has “several attractive 
acquisitions” in its sights. 


THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JUNE 18 1986 


FINANCE AND INDUSTRY 



man next year after 52 years 
in the business. His successor 
is an outsider, Mr Oscar 
DeVille. formerly of BICC. 
By the time he takes oveT. 
- Meyer may be ready- to 
diversify. 

Yesterday it announced in- 
creased profits of £32.1 mil- 
lion for the year to March 31 
against £30.3 million. That 
result benefited from a £3.25 
million increase to £4.78 
million in profits on property 
disposals, but even so it 
reflected a creditable perfor- 
mance for the bottom of the 
limber cycle. 

Of the three activities, 
merchaming and timber trad- 
ing each account for about 40 
per cent of profits, and manu- 
facturing for foe test. In lime 
Meyer may well carve out a 
fourth leg by acquisition. 

It could afford to spend a 
fairly large amount of money. 
At the year-end borrowings 
were down to £10 million 
despite the acquisition in 
October of Powell Duffiyn's 
timber division for £18.4 
million. Admittedly borrow- 
ings were helped by a tempo- 
rary rise of £8.1 million owed 
. to suppliers. 

While that benefit has been 
lost since the year-end, the 
effect has been offset by a 
£9.4 million inflow following 
the rationalization of Meyer’s 
Dutch business. 

The company's dividend 
policy seems to indicate that 
it is keen to conserve cash. 
Last year foe increased total 
dividend of 5.75p (5_25p) was 
covered nearly four times. 

At this stage Meyer's acqui- 
sition plans can only be 
guessed. A large acquisition, 
however, is unlikely until 
there has been a farther 
i m pro vement in trading. 
While the company 
succesfulty limned the de- 
cline in profits last year, when 
limber prices were falling it 
is not about to bounce back 
suddenly. The timber cycle is 
not so vicious as it once was. 

Timber (vices have im- 
proved modestly this year but 
Meyer does not expea them 
to rise further. 

The overall outlook, how- 
ever, isencouraging especial- 
ly for the Jewson 
merchaming chain where the 
benefits of a £2.6 million 
television advertising cam- 
paign have yet to emerge. . 

■ At 27 Ip, up lOp yesterday, 
shares are trading on II times 
earnings, assuming a profits 
rise to £35 million this year. 

Cullens group 
in £1 ,75m 
surprise loss 

Cullens, the quality conve- 
nience stores group which was 
taken over by three former 
Imperial directors in January 
last year, yesterday announced 
a surprising pretax loss of 
£1.75 million and an attribut- 
able loss of £382,000 for the 
year to March 2. 

At the time of its £5.1 
million rights issue In Febru- 
ary, Cullens forecast pretax 
losses not exceeding £1,4 mil- 
lion and attributable profits of 
not less than £700,000. 

The problem was of an ac- 
counting nature, Mr Peter 
Matthews, the chairman, said. 
Previous management's fail- 
ure to depredate lifts and 
other fittings and fixtures 
caused an unexpected write- 
off. 

Trading in the new format 
stores is going well, Mr Mat- 
thews said. 


Apricot 

loses 

£15.4m 

By Carol Ferguson 

Apricot Computers dis- 
closed a £154 million loss for 
the year to March in a surprise 
announcement yesterday. It 
has also dedded to withdraw 
from foe lower end of foe 
personal computer market, 
due to a flood of low priced 
imports from the Korea and 
Taiwan, and concentrate pro- 
duction on foe Apricot XEN-i 
— an IBM compatible version 
of foe powerful XEN machine. 

Apricot recorded a profit of 
£43 million from its mainte- 
nance and software business- 
es. But this was wiped out by 
provisions totalling £18.6 mil- 
lion - mostly for unsold stocks 
of personal computers other 
than foe XEN. 

The XEN-i has been under 
development for a year and 
will be launched this weekend. 
The adoption of the IBM stan- 
dard, which is effectively foe 
industry standard, marks the 
end of Apricot's lonely strag- 
gle to establish a niche for its 
machines.. 

After foe write-offs. Apricot 
has more than £20 million 
(39p per share) of net assets, 
including £5.9 million cash. 
Due to the deficit in foe profit 
and loss account, it was unable 
to declare a final dividend, 
which in the previous year was 
. M5p. 

The XEN-i wfll compete in 
foe low-volume, high-margin 
market for multi-user systems. 
Apricot intends to compete on 
price, selling its systems for 
£4,000 to £40,000.

SEC says Revlon 
misled investors 


Washington (NYT) — The 
Securities and Exchange Com- 
mission has accused Revlon 
Inc of misleading investors 
during its takeover battle with 
Pantry Pride by not promptly 
disclosing foe existence of 
discussions with two invest- 
ment companies. 

The SEC action comes after 
foe cosmetics company was 
bought by Pantry Pride for 
SI. 74 billion (£1.15 billion) 
following one of last year's 
most protracted takeover bat- 
tles. During the battle Revlon 
signed an SEC consent order 
agreeing to comply with the 
disclosure provisions of the 
securities laws. 

Revlon neither admitted 
nor denied the charges at an 
administrative proceeding on 
Monday. ■ 

In foe Revlon case. Pantry' 
Pride began the takeover bat- 
tle with a bid last August. 
Revlon's management coun- 
tered by offering to buy each 
common share with $57.50 in 
notes and preferred stock. ‘ 

In making that offer. 
Revlon had to file a 14D-9 
form with the SEC. which 
included a requirement to 
disclose “whether or not any 
negotiation is being undertak- 
en or under way." In that 
filing, Revlon said it “may 
undertake" negotiations, add- 
ing “currently, however, no 
negotiations have been under- 
taken with third parties." 


But by the middle of Sep- 
tember. Revlon had been 
approached by two New Yoric 
investment firms. Forstmann 
Little & Co. and Adler & 
Shaykin. about a possible 
leveraged buyout to fend off 
Pantry Pride. And by Septem- 
ber 26. the talks had devel- 
oped sufficiently to require 
prompt disclosure to the pub- 
lic. according to the SEC. 

By that time. Pantry Pride 
had made another bid and 
Revlon had filed a second 
14D-9 form, in which it said 
again that it “may undertake" 
merger discussions with a 
friendly party for possible 
purchase of its assets. But the 
company did not disclose the 
specific talks until October 2, 
when it announced foe buyout 
proposal by foe two invest- . 
ment firms. 

“Under foe circumstances 
of the case. Revlon should 
have disseminated informa- 
tion at least before the market 
opened on September 30," the 
SEC said. 

It suggested that foe late 
dissemination of information 
disadvantaged holders of 
notes offered by Revlon m 
exchange for its common 
stock as pan of its defensive 
tender offer. Once it became 
known that a leveraged 
buyout was in the pipeline and 
the Revlon tender was essen- 
tially moot, those securities 
lost value.

Quality award for 
Racal- Y odaphone 


By Derek Harris, 

Racal-Vodaphone, which 
has invested £100 million in 
establishing a cellular tele- 
phone network in Britain, has 
won this year's Think British 
Campaign award for quality 
and customer satisfaction, 
which is awarded by Jaguar 
Cars. 

At the campaign's annual 
awards presentation yesterday 
Mr Jeffrey Archer, deputy 
chairman of foe Conservative 
Party', said: "If every house- 
hold thought British before 
buying and moved £5 each 
week away from foreign to 
domestic goods 580,000 more 
people would be employed." 

The award by Wilkinson 
Sword for the company doing 


Industrial Editor 
most for the Think British 
Campaign went to Berol, 
which found ihqt using a 
Think British symbol on its 
pens increased sales nearly 
tenfold. Mr John Price, chair- 
man of Arthur Price of Eng- 
land. foe cutlery makers, won 
an award for the individual 
doing most for the campaign, 
another went to Mr Sidney 
RothwelL secretary of the 
North West Think British 
committee. 

Sir John Egan, chairman of 
Jaguar Cars, said: "British 
industry has greatly increased 
its ability to compete and now 
its primary objective must be 
to regain its reputation by 
fully satisfying the customer."

tute: Mr W W Daniel is to be

EJPTeam Public Relations: 
Mr David J Mulrine has 
become a director. 

Midland Bank Fastrak Val- 
ue Added Network Service: 
Mr Ian Ogilvie has become 
managing director. 


A mini-bloodbath in foe 
gills inter dealer broker net- 
work was predicted yesterday 
by one of foe six inter dealer 
brokers (IDBs) which will 
serve the 28 gilts market- 
makers following big bang on 
October 27. 

Mr Michael McCarthy, a 
director of Charles Fulton 
(IDB) Ltd. said that only three 
or four of the inter dealer 
brokers will survive foe six 
months following big bang. 

The function of IDBs is 
primarily to allow rival mar- 
ket-makers to deal anony- 
mously with one another 
through the IDB. Market- 
makers wanting to take up or 
Unwind their positions with 
one another will be able to do 
so via the I DBs' screens, 
installed in their offices, with- 
out revealing the state of their 
book. 

The IDBs earn their profits 
by charging commission to the 
aggressor — foe market-maker 


who responds to a bid or offer 
on foe lDB's screen.. Charles 
Fulton, which is a subsidiary 
of International City Hold- 
ings. the money broker, will 
charge commission of 1/I28fo 
ofl percent 

Mr McCarthy, who yester- 
day unveiled Charies Fulton's 
£ i .5 million dealing room and 
computer network, said that 
information from six IDBs 
would exceed market-makers' 
requirements, as well as being 
too difficult to monitor. More- 
over there would not be 
enough business for all the 
IDBs to provide a sufficiently 
active price service. 

He estimated that the jplis 
IDB neiwoTk, which essential- 
ly will represent foe wholesale 
side of the gilts markeL will 
need a daily volume of about 
£1 billion to be transacted 
through it. for it to be profit- 
able. 

Current daily turnover on 
the gilts market" is £1.5 billion.

for example, the new towns 
(an investment estimated by 
the Commission for the new 
towns at £3.7 billion in En- 
gland over 35 years) has 
simultaneously had economic 
and social purposes. 

Victor Hausner and Profes- 
sor Brian Robson, summariz- 
ing the results of a large-scale 
survey by the Economic and 
Social Research Council of 
inner cities, concluded: 
“Many policies have unin- 
tended spatial consequences 
which often work against the 
explicit aims of spatial urban 
policy. 

“Bristol provides the most 
dramatic example of the unin- 
tended impact of government 
spending in sectors such as 
defence and health. The area 
has benefited strongly from 
procurement policy for de- 
fence in the aerospace indus- 
try which is the main motor of 
the local economy ” 

During the 1980s cities, 
zones and sectors of cities 
became a focus for new gov- 
ernment programmes intend- 
ed to generate or sustain 
investment and economic 
activity. 

The Department of the 
Environment, though ostensi- 
bly responsible for the physi- 
cal condition of urban areas, 
in effect took responsibility 
for their social and economic 
well-being. The advent of 
Michael Heseltine as Secre- 
tary of State for the Environ- . 
ment in 1979 made this 
explicit: the Urban Pro- 
gramme was redefined as an 
economic programme and the 
stimulation of economic en- 
terprise, for example, through 
the Enterprise Zones was mar- 


ried with the department's 
responsibilities for land recla- 
mation and urban renewal 
Confusion was sown. 

Hausner and Robson argue 
in Changing Cities (Economic 
and Social Research Council ! 
£2) that there is inconsistency : 
between the aims of Environ- 1 
ment Department policies to 
support cities, and those of the 
Department of Trade and 
Industry which arc designed 
to sustain regions regardless of 
whether or not investment is 
channelled into cities per se. 
“A study of government pro- 
grammes in the West Mid- 
lands showed * lack of 
coordination between the two 
departments, and between 
both and the Manpower Ser- 
vices. Commission with its 
responsibilities for skill 
training.” 

They maintain that the 
distribution of regional devel- 
opment grants has heavily 
favoured the outer areas of 
cities. The new towns, espe- 
cially in the North-West, have 
likewise been accused of suck- 
ing population and invest- 
ment from the inner areas of 
such cities as Liverpool Sev- 
eral of the enterprise zones 
have, according to prelimi- 
nary surveys, succeeded only 
in transferring employment 
from one pan of a region to 
another by encouraging firms 
to shift in pursuit of tax reliefs. 

Britain's decision to join the 
European Economic Commu- 
nity added further complexity 
to regional economic policy. 
Membership itself affected, 
for example, the attractiveness

foreign enterprises.

Jobs for thousands 
after steel closures 


The “opportunity areas" la- 
belled by BSC (Industry) read 
like a gazeteer of the first 
industrial revolution, when 
commercial smelting grew up 
on the coalfields of South 
Wales, Lanarkshire, Dor ham 
and Yorkshire. For Britain the 
revolution is conclusively end- 
ed: either balk steel is no 
longer made, or it is hi plants 
thousands of miles from where 
the ironmasters set op shop 
and the steelmen followed. 

BSC (Industry) has the job 
of mopping up the remnants of 
the industrial revolution. Es- 
tablished II years ago, when 
the “rationalization" of the 
British Steel Corporation had 
become inevitable, the subsid- 
iary claims to have created 
30,000 jobs in areas affected 
by closures. 

Its package of help includes 
sites and workshops, factories 
and offices, loans and advice — 
not least about how to tap into 
the various pots of money 
available for business io the 
steel closure areas. Scun- 
thorpe, Rotherham and Dud- 
ley a!) have enterprise zones; 
BSC (Industry) local teams 
promise introductions and dis- 
cussion with relevant officials 
and money managers. 

The company has pioneered 
the conversion of redundant 
btrildiiigs into small work- 
shops. Two people who wait 
into partnership in such a 
workshop, with 1,500 square 
feet, needed £64)00 for plant 
and working capital. They 
found a third themselves, a 


third came from a bank and 
BSC (Industry) lent the rest. 

BSC (Industry) now has a 
junior cousin in such work. 
NCB Enterprise was launched 
in spring last year with £5 
million from the National Coal 
Board (now British Coal) to 
create tong-term job opportu- 
nities in the coalfields. Merrik 
Span ton, the chairman, says 
the aim is to replace all mining 
jobs lost daring the present 
restructuring “over a reason- 
able period . 

Like BSC (Industry) the 
NCB offshoot is trying to work 
closely with enterprise agen- 
cies, organizations which have 
flowered in recent years to 
bring together in a local forum 
councils, banks, and private 
firms. 

NCB Enterprise has ex- 
panded quickly. The Energy 
Secretary, Peter Walker, ap- 
proved an increase in its 
provision to £20 million last 
July, and its executives are 
certainly bullish. They say 
that in its first full year of 
operation it has supported 
about 430 projects, which are 
expected to create 5,400 jobs. 

In the North-East the com- 
pany has made loans to com- 
panies in heavy engineering, 
frozen foods and computer 
software. Elsewhere it has 
helped set np starter work- 
shops: the Rotherham Enter- 
prise Agency workshop at 
Wath upon Dearne received a 
grant from it, and has let aO its 
units.

is a holdover from the profli- 
gate 1970s that has Norman 
Tebbit's approval. The recent 
Scottish Conservative Party 
conference heard ringing de- 
nunciations of high taxation 
and state interference; but 
references by the Secretary of 
State. Malcolm Rifkind. to the 
agency's positive contribution 
to the regeneration of Scotland 
brought applause. 

The agency is now being 
held up as a model. Spokes- 
men for the North and North- 


West and other depressed 
English regions have long 
complained of the agency's 
potency in promoting Scot- 
land and attracting inward 
investment. Now, it seems, 
the Government is thinking of 

Springboard for 
Glasgow's rebirth 

building regional develop- 
ment agencies on the same 
lines for them. 

The Scottish Development 
Agency, needless to say, is 
extremely good at public rela- 
tions. It is also the creature of 
a Scottish political set-up that 
by the very nature of die 
Scottish Office and the Cabi- 
net position of the Secretary of 
State for Scotland, cannot be 
replicated south of the border. 

It was established in 1975, 
endowed by the then Labour 
Secretary of State. William 
Ross, with a directly interven- 


tionist role in industry, ft was 
to stop businesses closing and 
support lame ducks. In feci, 
the agency's role was ambigu- 
ous. As wed as industrial 
support, it became involved in 
urban renewal in Glasgow as 
well. 

Even alter the Thatcher 
Government reduced its ca- 
pacity to take equity shares in 
industry the agency still has a 
confusing variety of purposes, 
from sectoral economic ana- 
lyst to dockside developer, 
from Scotland's American 
public relations agent to prop- 
erty speculator and promoter 
of onshore trusts. It has an 
urban focus because economic 
development in the rural 
north of Scotland is the re- 
sponsibility of a separate and 
older agency of government, 
the Highlands and Islands 
Development Board. 

The agency’s reputation 
rests, in some measure, on its 
work in “turning round"

Oydeside. ft has participated 
in foe £305 million Glasgow 
Eastern Area Renewal, the 
success of which has been a 
springboard for Glasgow's re- 
naissance. The agency has a 
share in the continuing regen- 
eration of Glasgow's shopping 
area in Buchanan Street, the 
refurbishment of Anderslon 
on the Clyde and what, by 
comparison with other enter- 
prise zones, is the success of 
the Clydesbank zone. 

Another string to the bow is 
"Silicon Glen", the belt of 
investment in the Strathclyde, 
Central, Fife and Lothian 
regions in high tech industry. 
Electronics now employs 
40.000 people in Scotland in 
300 companies. By no means 
all the investment that pro- 
duced this new sector is recent 
'-companies such as IBM and 
Burroughs have been in Scot- 
land since the 1950s. But 
Scotland is now said to have 
Europe's highest concentra- 
tion of wafer fabrication and 
few of the major manufactur- 
ers of computers and semicon- 
ductors are not represented on 
the Scottish roster. 

Alastair Macpherson, head 
of the agency's electronics 
division, has said the semi- 
conductor industry came to 
Scotland because it could get 
the level of skill i! required as 
; well as support facilities, and 
| access to the European market 
j from within EEC tariff 
I harriers. 

But the agency has now set 
itself the task of encouraging 
spill-over from assembly work 
in electronics to product de- 
velopment Great hopes rest 
on Wang Laboratories' $55 
million office automation 
plant at Stirling University 
which might demonstrate how 
inward investment can be 
married with Scottish applied 
science. 

Through the Locate in Scot- 
land campaign, run jointly 
with the Scottish Office, which 
administers grants to industry, 
the agency has raised 
Scotland's promotional pro- 
file. Scotland has its own 
offices in San Francisco, Chi- 
cago, Houston and New York; 
and Scottish MPs rebuffed the 
T reasury's efforts to amalgam- 
ate them with UK-wide pro- 
motional activities in the 
United States. The agency 
reported some £1.2 billion in 
inward foreign investment in 
Scotland between 1981-82 and 
1984-85. together with the 
creation of 19,000 jobs. 

Yet in the agency and in its 





Dr George Mathewson, Scottish Development Agency chief 
executive, and Alastair Macpherson, electronics head 


junior relative, the Welsh 
Development Agency, the em- 
phasis is moving away from 
competition for the limited 
pool of mobile foreign capital 
towards stimulating indige- 
nous sources of economic 
enterprise. Edward Cunning- 
ham, the agency’s planning 
director, has referred to its 
role in making the Scottish 
economy "dynamic and vitaT 
by, for example, mobilizing 
venture capital for local 
entrepreneurs. 

This is territory the Welsh 
Development Agency, formed 
in 1976 with similar ambi- 
tions. has recently staked out 
for itself. In April the Cardiff 
Consortium was launched as 
"a one-slop shop for entrepre- 
neurs in need of. equity 
finance", in the words of 
David Waterslone, the Welsh 

Edinburgh’s wealth 
offers benefits - 

Development Agency's chief 
executive. 

The Cardiff '■ Consortium 
finks the agency's funds with 
money from such Q'ty funds 
as Charterhouse Japhet and 
Citicorp Venture Capital to 
provide, within a Welsh enve- 
lope. backing for risk-takers. 

Whether Cardiff has tradi- 
tionally been deprived of risk 
capital sources is disputed by 
some, but the new scheme will 
try to marry the availability of 
finance with the agency’s 
package of supports for 
fledgeling business — its busi- 
ness development unit spe- 
cializes in management and 
technical advice to smaller 
firms and, like the Scottish 
agency, it is a large-scale 
industrial landlord with a 
variety of premises and sites. 

Investment in Scotland has 
always benefited by contrast 
with Wales, from the wealth 
and sophistication of Edin- 
burgh as a centre for financial 


services. The problem, is hot 
shortage of capita! but secur- 
ing the fruits for Scottish 
benefit The Scottish agency 
recently bad a hand in launch- 
iriga new investment trust the 
Scottish American Venture 
Enterprise (SAVE); the agency 
will act as fund manager 
rather than equity participant 

Dr George Mathewson, the 
agency's chief executive said: 
"SAVE is designed to tap the 
flow of funds from Scottish 
and other UK investment 
institutions into the tradition- 
al United States securities 
market and channel these 
through the highly developed 
venture capital sector in 
promising high technology 
companies which, in time, are 
likely to consider- a European 
manufacturing or support 
base." 

The agency, in other words, 
thinks ambitiously. It is al- 
lowed to do so because of the 
nature of Edinburgh and Glas- 
gow politics. The Secretary of 
State has considerable autono- 
my. Some people have talked 
of "Keynesianism north of the 
border" in recent years. Thisis 
probably stretching a point ft 
is true; however, that George 
Younger and now Mr Rifkind 
can use the powers of their 
office and its agencies in a i 
more dirigisie and active way | 
than might be thought proper : 
in England. 

Behind the agency stands a 
politician able, in principle, to 
co-ordinate the various arms 
of government in a region, 
which is, of course, also a 
nation, and able, too, on 
occasion to bang the Cabinet 
table, as Mr Younger is 
thought, to have done, to 
secure an objective of regional 
policy such as keeping 
Ravenscraig steelworks open. 
Because no English region 
would have a similar ministe- 
rial presence, the agency mod- 
el is of only limited use for 
lhem~ - - 


Message 
of hope 

Continued from previous page 
of the regions in relation to the 

Community-wide market: the 
peripheral areasareeven more 
peripheral on the European 
scale. On the positive side, 
UK regions stand to benefit 
from European regional 
policy. . . 

The main vehicle for this is 
tbe ERDF, the Community's 
regional development fund. 
Member states submit appli- 
cations to the fund, the total 
cost of which is shared be- 
tween them, ft isa moot point 
whether any specific pant is 
“new" money for the country 
but individual regions may 
secure a net benefit Scotland, 
for example, has been award- 
ed about £600 million from 
the fund since 1 975; such local 
authorities as Strathclyde re- 
gional council. . which has a 
lobbvtst in Bnissels, have 
shown themselves adept at 
playing the grants game. 

For the Scottish and Welsh 
Development Agencies, tbe 
new town corporations, local 
authorities, the Department of 
Trade, the promoters of the 
enterprise zones, BSC (Indus- 
try) and the rest "the game" 
has imtil recently been pri- 
marily one of working to 
attract non-local capital to 
produce local jobs. 

A consequence, in the 
North, Scotland and Ulster, 


has been to reinforce structur- 
al tendencies increasing the 
proportion of employment 
provided (in manufacturing) 
bv foreign firms and decreas- 
ing still further the regional 
distribution of corporate 
headquarters. 

In the 19SQs the decline of 
manufacturing and shrinkage 
in the pool of mobile capital 
investment in many sectors 
has led to a change in attitude. 

One of the decade's buzz 
words is “enterprise". 

The regional agencies are 
trying to promote local entre- 
preneurship and the creation 
of small business as actively as 
they. stiH. seek inward invest- 
ment. Tbe university-linked 
science park has become a 
symbol of attempts to gener- 
ate economic activity from 
indigenous sources. 

Having gone through its 
hour of trial at the hands of Sir 
Keith Joseph. Mr Tebbit and 
then Mr Britnrn, regional poli- 
cy still occupies considerable 
space in the Department of 
Trade's budgeting, even 
though holding only half the 
value in cash terms this year 
that it had tn 1980-81. 

But since the (986 public 
expenditure White Paper was 
published, Geevor has closed 
and the price of North Sea oil 
has fallen and British ship- 
building has shed thousands 
of workers. In the words of Mr 
Brinan it is "our right and our 
duty to ask again whether wc 
can do more to help "

When it comes to criticism of 
capitalism for feiliflglhe re- 
gions, the trenchant- voices 
have, at least in. recent years, 
been on the right rather than 
the left of polibcsu . 

“Decisions taken in the 
boardrooms of the City of 
London need late no account 
of the profound, sometimes 
devastating impact on. a local 
cbrhmuniiy. Many ofthe Dew- 
style' industrial .and commer- 
cial landlords are absentees. 
Those taking the big decisions 
rarely live in the local commu- 
nity. Few have a sense of 
responsibility for the commu- 
nity in whose area they take 
operational decisions-” ■ 

The words corae from Mi- 
chael Heseltine, erstwhile 
minister for Merseyside. As he 
wrote in a .celebrated memo to 
the Prime Minister after the 
Toxlelh riots in 1981, “it took 
a riot” to awaken London 

S jliticians to the decay of 
ritain's urban centres, but 
once .awakened, there was 
much that could be done. 

Mr Heseftine's tenure at the 
Department of the Environ- 
ment from. 1979 to 1983 saw 
the department’s “regional”' 
and economic responsibilities 
enhanced- 1 ’ to the point where 
it was in direct competition 
with Department ofTrade and 
Industry as the ministry sym- 
bolically responsible for the 
regional economies. In the 
aftermath of the. riots new 
initiatives : streamed out of 
Department of the Environ- 


ment in profusion to add to 
existing novelties such as the 
docklands development’ cor- 
; potations and the enterprise 
zones.. V . ' 

Mr Heseltine, like many 
. visitors to the United States, 
relumed impressed by the co- 
operation between public and 
private sectors that had regen- 
erated downtown areas in 
Baltimore and Boston: - 

The resulting policy mnova- 
1 tion was the Urban Develop- 
ment Action Grant Special 
grants were needed, in Mr 
■ Heseltine's words, “to encour- 
age imaginative projects to 
come forward".. 

But Urban ‘ Development 
Grants, as the British variant 
was known, required co-oper- . 
ation between private sector 
and local authority and be- 
tween town hall and White- 
hall. . Events in Liverpool 
demonstrate how difficult this 
can be. A recent strand , of 
thinVtno among civil servants 
and ministers has favoured 
more directly interventionist 
programmes, with central gov- 
ernment . itself adjudicating 
business schemes. 

With some fanfare the Gov- 
ernment two years ago un- 
veiled new City Action Teams 
in live inner areas, including 
Liverpool, Manchester and 
Newcastle upon Tyne. Thor 
aim nos better targetting of 
available pockets of govern- 
ment money — training grants 
from the Department of Em- 
ployment money to refurbish 


older buildings from English 
Heritage. Department of 
Trade and Industry advice 
and support for business, the 
Youth Training Scheme run 
by the Manpower Services 
Commission, derelict land 
grants and so on. 

But even these teams are 
regarded by some as too weak 
an agent of government pur- 
pose. Only last week a study 
commissioned by local au- 
thorities in Cleveland from 
Graham Moss Associates ar- 
gued for an urban develop- 
■ ment corporation to tackle the 
eotXniy's problems of road 
construction, land reclama- 
tion and investment 
management. 

Not all analysts of urban 
decline • think more govern- 
ment is the right answer. On. 
behalf of the National Council 
of Building Materials Produc- 
ers. Harry Cowie surveyed the 
American scene and conclud- 
ed that freedom from restric- 
tions was needed in 
downtown areas to promote 
comprehensive redevelop- 
ment This chimes with recent 
White Papers published by 
Lord Young. Secretary of 
State for Employment whose 
theme is “lifting the burden” 
of regulation from businesses. 

His criticisms identify town 
and country planning law, 
barriers to physical develop- 
ment of buddings and sites, 
restrictions on employment 
for the sake of sex equality, 
protections for workers.

and Industry, local authorities and business 
to attract industry, especially from overseas. . 
English Industrial Estates Corpor ati on, to 
provide, industrial and commercial premises 
in parts of England where regional policy 
encourages basinesreo set up or relocate. The 
corporation is obliged to achieve a set rate of 
return on lettings. 

British Tmnist Authority: Can make grants 
under the 1 969 Development of Tourism Act 
to encourage visitors to visit places other than 
London. 

Local Enterprise Agencies; to promote indus- 
try and commerce with; special reference to 
small firms. Central government pays a small 
grant to them selectively. ....... 

Cooperative pevetopment Agency: Receives a 
grant in aid to promote co-operative 
enterprises. 


- Small Firms Loan Guarantee Scheme: Under 
the * Department of ' Employment's ' aegis 

. guarantees certain loans to small firms. 
Employment Transfer Scheme: Helps em- 
ployers by paying for unemployed people to 

• move to jobs when they would not otherwise 
do so. 

Development Commission: Promotes ' the 
economic and social development of English 
rural areas by, for example, building factories 
and workshops. The commission's agency for 
helping small firms, the Council for Small 
Industries in Rural Areas, provides a pro- 
gramme of advice and financial assistance.

purpose 

“What will happen to support 
for industry?" Some kind of 
victory for socialism was rep- 
resented by the very feet, that 
that question was put in the 
pamphlet brought out last year 
by the Department of the 
Environment to explain what 
would happen after the aboli- 
tion of the Greater London 
and the metropolitan 
councils. 

For years councils have had 
powers to promote their areas 
and support industry. But it 
was the “new municipal left” 
that came to power in the early 
1980s that brought into local 
government a new, purposive 
set of ideas about how the 
municipal machine could be 
used to restructure local econ- 
omies. 

It is often forgotten that the 
attempt to cut London's feres 
that brought Ken Livingstone 
and colleagues before the 
courts was the central element 
in' an economic strategy for 
the capital carefully worked 
out before the Labour left took 
control of the GLC in 1981. 

That strategy was for La- 
bour local authorities not 
merely to promote economic 
development (by building fac- 
tories or making loans or 
singing the local area's praises 
in newspaper advertisements). 

It was for the council also to 
take an equity stake in compa- 
nies and to act as an entrepre- 
neur and financier. 
Councillors and officials had 
realized that sections 137 and 
143 of the 1972 Local Govern- 
ment Act empowered them to 
assist economic enterprise in 
various ways; and in the 1980s 
the GLC, the West Midlands 
and other metropolitan coun- 
ties .discovered that their eco- 
nomic role could be expanded 


Pressing forward: Clothing manufacturers EJL 
Hammers! ey, a West Midlands Enterprise Board success 
by, for example, channelling West Midlands economy will 


pension and loan funds into 
investment projects. 

The West Midlands Enter- 
prise Board is one of the most 
successful examples of the 
new breed. Its leading light is a 
Birmi ngham Labour council- 
lor, Geoff Edge. The analysis 
begins with the striking 
growth in unemployment in 
the West Midlands — from 6 
per cent in 1979 to more than 
15 peT cent in 1985 — job 
losses and the decline in staple 
manufactures. 

The West Midlands has 
become unattractive to insti- 
tutional investors. Its stock of 
capital equipment is becom- 
ing antiquated. Government 
support has not been forth- 
coming for a region still not 
recognized as depressed on the 
official indices. Apprentice- 
ship schemes have shut down 
mid the workforce is losing its 
traditional skills. * 

“Problems of this magni- 
tude cannot be dismissed as a 
temporary feature of 
recession,” Mr Edge said to 
the board's directors in Janu- 
ary. “The regeneration of the 


involve investment geared to 
maximize the potential of the 
area's resources.” 

The board's task is seen as 
the provision of long-term risk 
capital wbteh financial institu- 
tions are unwilling to provide. 

The companies supported 
by the board include Tangye, 
of Greet, which makes ma- 
chine tools, and Hi-ton, of 
Selly Oak, manufacturer of 
gears. The West Midlands 
Enterprise Board wants to 
revive traditional industry, 
rather than foment a shift into 1 
the service sector. 

Is it socialism? The West 
Midlands Enterprise Board 
bears a striking resemblance 
in miniature to the National 
Enterprise Board established 
by the last Labour govern- 
ment and wound up under 
Mrs Thatcher. Yet the appar- 
ently successful launch in 
1985 of the West Midlands 
Regional Unit Trust by the 
board in co-operation with 
Lazard Brothers as a mecha- 
nism for commercial invest- 
ment indicates at least 
eclecticism.

33 Ivor Place, Regents Park. London NW1 6DA 


By Christopher Warman f 

Property Correspondent : 


The past few. days, give or take a 
thunderstorm, have shown that summer 
has arrived. It is late arriving, and 
whether it is going fa be good or bad de- 
pends on the gods or the weather 
forecasters, but it is summer. 

It is then that the thoughts of many 
people turn to the water, to rivers and to 
boats, and a visit to the mouth of the 
Hambie, near Southampton and oppo- 
site the Isle of Wight, shows why. When 
the sun shines- on the water, and the 
boats bob up and down like corks, there 
is every reason to believe that Ratty in 
The Wind in the Willows and the 
assembled company in Three Men in a 
Boat were right to think . highly of 
messing about in boats. . 

Other people seem to think the same, 
which is why property in the vicinity is 
more expensive than elsewhere. Jeff 
Shorter, of the agents Fox and. Sons, who 
looks after the ansa from his .offices in 
Hedge End, Southampton, says there is a 
20 to 30 per cent premium on properties 
on the water or close to it And that 
means bouses built nearby are often 
given tiny windows offering an angled 
view of water so that they can be truly de- 
scribed in the estate agents' details as 
having an unparalleled view of the river. 

That may be unfair, btit an interesting 

The village is picturesque, 
an almost unspoilt oasis 

illustration is a new house at Manor 
Court Green Lane, Harable. It is one of 
three built in the farmer pounds of 
Hambie Manor, close to the river, but it 
is behind another which looks directly on 
to the Hambie and therefore has had to 
be designed cleverly to allow views to the 
water, except from the garden. 

At the same time the house is in the 
centre of the yachting haven, apart from 
being dose to Southampton and Ports- 
mouth, and is helped by the M27 and its 
links with the M3. It has a master 
bedroom suite, three further bedrooms 
and three reception rooms, and it is built 
to a high spedfication by a developer 
who lives in one of the other houses in 
the group. The third house has been 
bought by a partner in the estate agents 
involved in selling it Plot 1, Manor 
Court is for sale at £175,000 through 
Fox and Sons' Hedge End office and 
Pearsons.

Second homes for yachtsmen: This farmer shop opposite ^ 

has been converted into two flats costing £74,000 and £764)00 

property is coming on. to the market in to build, the fitted kitchens that mo 
the area, partly as a result of a relaxation other developers buy from ootsid 
of planning controls, and not far from These flats— one on the ground floor at 
Manor Court a development of three one on the first floor — really are secon 
terrace houses overlooking the river at homes. Each has two bedrooms aim ot 
Rope Walk. Hambie; has just been living room, and they cost £74,000 an 
completed. The village is a picturesque £76,000 respectively, 
and almost unspoilt oasis, and these The Copse, in Hambie. is a devdo] 
houses blend in wdl with the existing ment of 55 to 60 new houses built on ti 


property. 

They are next to Ye Glde Coffee 
House, a former yacht store dating from 
1878. This house has no known connec- 
tion with coffee, but was once owned by 
the Earl of Sandwich and is a good- 
looking building of brick described by 
the estptp agents as “tired''. It has been 
improved in recent years, but needs a 
facelift, and could then be a splendid 
permanent or weekend home in one of 
the best sites in the village. It has three 
reception rooms and five bedrooms, and 
is for sale at £139.000. 

The new houses, occupying one of the 
last undeveloped sites on the west bank 
of the Hambie, have uninterrupted views 
over the river (across the car park of a 
yacht club) and have been planned to 
give full advantage to the living accom- 
modation on the first and second floors. 
They have four or five bedrooms, 
balconies and double garages built to 
enable a boat to be parked inside or 
indeed through into the back garden. 
They are priced by Fox and Sons and 
Pearsons at £145,000 to £165,000. - 

Mr Shorter sera these properties as 
second homes and says there is consider- 
able interest in the second home market 
at this sort of price. The combination of 
boating, luxury accommodation 'and 
access to London make the demand. 

At the other end of Rope Walk, on The 
Quay, a house built in the 1930s and 
until recently used as a shop, has been 
convened into two flats by a local, firm, 
H.G. Lane, which still has the craftsmen 


to build, the fitted kitchens that mast 
other developers buy from outside. 
These flats— one on the ground floor and 
one on the first floor— really are second 
homes. Each has two bedrooms and one 
living room, and they cost £74,000 and 
£76,000 respectively. 

The Copse, in Hambie. is a develop- 
ment of 55 to 60 new houses built on the 
site of woodland from an old estate, 
which has. the advantage of ready-made 
landscaping and fine trees, ami the 
disadvantage of having to fit houses 
between them. This new estate, proving 
the demand for-goodkdzed family houses 
in the area*, is being built by Bfoor 
Homes, the company’s first up-market 
development. The traditionally styled 

The house that will strike 
a chord with televiewers 

houses, of four and five bedrooms, cost 
from £130.000 to £] 70,000. 

It is interesting that a lot of new 
building in the Hambie area is on the 
market, but little older property. There 
is, however, one property far sate in Old 
Bursledon. in the heart of a conservation 
area, which may strike a chord with 
people who see it- Bondfidd House in 
Kew Lane is a large Victorian house, in ~ 
3.5 acres looking down to the river, and 
it is the bouse used in the television 
series Howard's Way, which not surpris- 
ingly is set in a boating environment 

Bondfield House, built in 1896, has 
been modernized recently and has a targe 
drawing room, a conservatory, a study, a 
sitting room or dining room, five 
bedrooms, outbuildings, an orchard and 
a paddock. The house has a replica of 
some of therooms built in the television 
studios, in Birmingham. This is die real 
thing though, and is. for sate, at £225,000 
through Fox and SOns’ Hedge End office.

Shepton Maflet Somerset which 
combine a fine 18th-century house 
with a business producing some of the 
best English wine, is for sate through 
Knight Frank & Ruttey's Sherborne office 
at around £500,000 for the whole. The 
Grade II listed manor house has 6.5 acres 
of wines averaama about 23.000 


potnes a year. The vineyard was planted 
in 1966, 1968 and 1981 and produces ■ 
three main varieties — Mutier-Thurgau, 
Huxelrebe arid Seyval Sane grafted 
on to American root stock. 

The house has a dassfc frontage with 
added Gothic features, and the 
accommodation includes four 
reception rooms and seven bedrooms. 
There are aiso cellars, outbuildings 
and a swimming pool and a Grate II listed 
dovecot withm toe 27 acres. 


■ Orchard House, Hurst, Martocfc, 
Somerset is a village house dating from 
the 18 th century, and has period 
features metudmg a deep moulded 
beam panelled ceffing, raised crucfc

been recommended for fisting, and the 

house, with four reception rooms and 
five bedrooms, and standing in one acre, 

is for sale through Jackson-Stops 

and Staffs Yeova office* at £ 11 (^ 000 . 



The baron’s lodge 

■ Petersham Lodge, dose to the park 
at Richmond, Surrey, and near the 
Thames, is a fine 18th-century Grade H 

fisted house set in three acres and built to 

its present size in 1740 for Robert Ord, 
chief baron for the Exchequer of 
Scotland. In 1902 the then owner. Sir 
Max Waechter, presented the house to 
Richmond council so that the view 
from the terrace could be preserved for 
ever. Until 1940 it was leased to toe 
Princess of Wales, later Queen Mary, as a 
holiday house for retired lades-in- 
waiting. It has recently retorned to private 

ownership. 

The house, of white-painted stucco, 
has a grand reception hall and three 
reception rooms, with two bedroom 
suites and four further bedrooms. 
A^e sfortfs Chelsea office is asking 


■ Property prices, already rising 
test, are getting an added impetus in 
towns and villages near the M25, 
says a report from Flatt & Mead, estate 
agents operating In Hertfordshi re, 
Buddnghamshba and Oxfordshire. They 
say toot In this area, three-bedroom 
houses priced a year or 18 months ago 
at £90,000 are now fetching 
considerably more than £ 1 20 , 000 . 
“There Is no doubt that, wito toe final 
part of the M25 nearing completion, this 
activity wffl continue,” they report 
The agents also say people seeking 
properties from them are beginning 
to outnumber vendors. This trend 
app&es to areas near the M25 and 
flanking the RM); improvements to 

whkto have reduced driving time for 

London-bound commuters. ' ' 


The boom in recrement homes predict- 
ed in the past two years has now reached 
a level where one in 10 of all private 
housing starts is now designed, built and 
sold exclusively to retired people, says a 
. report by a University of Surrey research 
team. 

The report is the third by Dr Malcolm 
Parry and Dr Stephen Baker, who in 
1 983 estimated the size of the market at 
. between 250,000 and 400,000, at a time 
when only about Z500 purpose-built 
units bad been completed They then 
said 20,000 to 24,000 units would be 
needed every year to satisfy demand in 
this growing market — a figure still not 
achieved, according to their latest re- 
search, which suggests a rate of about 
16,000 a year. 

Dr Parry said the present rate of 
development represented a £450 million 
market for the house-builders, “but they 
must get the product right”. By Decem- 
ber 1985 more than 36,000 retirement 
homes for sale had received p lann in g 
consent, of which 31,000 - in about 900 
schemes throughout England, Wales and 
Scotland —had been built or were under 
construction. Almost half of all the units 
are in Sussex, Greater London, Hamp- 
shire. Kent, Devon and Surrey — 
developments encouraged by high prop- 
erty values in these counties, the authors 
say. Land with planning consent for 
retirement housing is now achieving 
higher values than land zoned for any 
other type of residential development 
Looking at what has been provided so 
ter, they say that existing sheltered 
housing for sale is primarily suitable only 
for the active elderly, and they argue that 
there is also a need for accommodation 
suitable for those elderly whose bousing 
needs exceed those provided by this 




this limitation they recommend the 
development of full “continuing care” 
schemes capable of housing the elderly 
even if they lose their independence 
through disability or ill health. 

They acknowledge that there is now a 
growing interest in the development of 
schemes which combine sheltered hous- 
ing with access to foil nursing care in the 
same development “We believe there is 
likely to be a significant demand for such 
continuing care schemes,” they say. 

The report. Housing for sale to the 
eideriy — the retirement housing boom 
and future trends, says the leasehold 

Residents’ welfare depends 
on quality of management 

agreements for a number of schemes 
contain unfavourable lenns, including 
the return only of the original purc hase 
price when a resident leaves; excessively 
high charges by managing agents on 
resale; restricting occupation to named 
occupiers; and non-assign able leases 
where only the managing agents have the 
right to sell the property. 

The authors believe the welfare of 
residents in sheltered schemes depends 
to a large extent on the quality of the 
management and on the performance of 
the wardens. To ensure this, there should 
be a code of practice giving guidance on 
the management of sheltered bousing for 
sale. .

Commercial Department. National

RACING: FORMER CHAMPION JOCKEY COLLECTS COVENTRY STAKES WITH FIRST ROYAL ASCOT RUNNER AS TRAINER 


Speedy Sonic Lady to Piggott triumphs with Cutting Blade 


reign supreme in 
Coronation Stakes 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 


For anyone prepared to take 
short odds. Sonic Lady is a 
confident selection to win the 
Coronation Slakes at Royal 
Ascot this afternoon. George 
Robinson, our Newmarket 
Correspondent, is positively 
ecstatic about the way that 
Michael Stoute's filly has been 
working on the Heath since 
she won the Irish 1,000 Guin- 
eas on the Curragh last month. 

Watching her wra that clas- 
sic simply endorsed the view 
that she did not give her true 
running in our 1.000 in which 
she was narrowly beaten by 
Midway Lady and Maysoon. 
At Newmarket Sonic Lady 
was very much on edge. In 
contrast she was totally re- 
laxed in Ireland and it was a 
revelation to see her cruise 
past her opponents on the bit 
in the final quarter of a mile. 


connections of another Irish 
filly Grey Goddess have been 
praying for rain but as yet 
their prayers seem to have 
fallen on deaf ears. 

With Abuzz, Forest Flower, 
Naturally Fresh and Propensi- 
ty all standing their ground 
overnight, we are assured of a 
sizzling sprint for the Queen 
Mary Stakes. Bui for an 
appallingly unlucky first run 
Naturally Fresh would be 
unbeaten. Since that unhappy 
day she has made amends 
twice, each time at Newmar- 


Course specialists 


In that form I find it 
impossible to contemplate de- 
feat for her this afternoon, 
even though last year's 
Cheveley Park Stakes winner. 
Embla. is in the field and 
likely to be much more effec- 
tive on this fast ground than 
the soft underfoot conditions 
in the Spring.

performances together. When 
he was trained by Michael 
Stoute he was too inconsistent 
for my liking. 

I prefer Siyah Kalem ,who 
will be trying to emulate 
Mighty Fly. Hawkley and 
Come on the Blues and win 
this cavalry charge in addition 
to the Sandown Whitsun Cup 
for which he is penalised. At 
Sandown I was impressed 
with the pace that Siyah 
Kalem showed in the lam 
quarter of a mile. Like so 
many horses bred in the 
United States he clearly revels 
on fast ground. 

Tfl uhaq, with his maiden 
allowance, looks the sort to 
run well in the Queen's Vase 
and he is taken to improve 
Paul Cole's already fine record 
since moving to Whatcombe. 

For a horse who is thought 
to need two miles Laabas did 
not fare at all badly at 
Goodwood in the Predomi- 
nate Stakes, which is after all a 
Derby triaL 


By Michael Seely 

Lester Piggott hit the 
bnllseye with his first runner 
as a trainer at Royal Ascot 
yesterday when Cash 
Asmnssen drove Catting 
Blade to a thrilling victory in a 
finish of short heads in the 
Coventry Stakes for two-year- 
olds. “That was a fantastic 
thrill/* said the 50-year-old 
maestro, looking relaxed and 
laid back in his morning suit 
and top hat, the ensemble 
being completed by an outside 
pair of dark glasses. 

Thirty four summers hare 
passed since this firing legend 
rode his first winner at the 
Royal meeting when capturing 
the Wokbighani Stakes on 
Malka's Boy for Waiter 
Nightingall in 1952, During 
the intervening period he has 
ridden 29 Esgfisga classic win- 
ners, being champion Jockey 
II times and leading rider at 
Royal Ascot on the same 
number of occasions. 

Catting Blade was bought 
for 24,000 Irish pants as a 
yearling. “He'll now go for the 
Richmond Stakes at 
Goodwood,” said the delighted 
trainer, “And after that the 
Heinz 57 Phoenix Stakes hi 
Ireland.” 


kei where she has streaked 
home in a fast time. 


Today's nap. though, is 
Brave Owen to win the Jersey 
Stakes. In the Spring Henry 
Cecil thought that the Free 
Handicap was at the mercy of 
Jim Joel's good, but lightly 
raced colt. However, a pulled 
muscle ruled out a crack at 
that race and the 2,000 Guin- 
eas as welL 


She is reported to have done 
everything that her trainer 
John Winter has required of 
her on the Heath in the build- 
up for today's important test, 
and i will be disappointed if 
she fails this. 


So Brave Owen did not 
reappear until the end of May 
when he ran his stable com- 
panion. the Green ham Stakes 
winner Faustus, to 
Ihreequarters of a length in the 
Heron Stakes at Kempton. 
That was a good performance. 


The field for the Royal 
Hunt Cup is the maximum 
that the width of the course 
will permit for the straight 
mile. So with 32 thundering 
up the track this is as big a 
lottery as you will find all 
season. 


Knight's Legend, who beat 
Laabas's stable companion 
Actinium at Sandown last 
Saturday, and Mubaaris, who 
might well prefer it softer 
underfooL are other three- 
year-olds to note in a race 
which has tended to favour 
the younger horses over the 
years. 

Insular, the Queen's runner, 
finished fourth in this event 
12 months ago. His task is no 
easier this time. 


Since then everything has 
right for Brave Owen, 


gone — 

who has continued to please 
his meticulous trainer at 
home. 


My short list comprises 
Tremblant and Shmaireekh, 
who finished fifth and sixth in 
the same race twelve months 
ago. Hadeer, Siyah Kalem and 
Telwaah. 


Silent Journey is attempting 
to emulate his owner Robert 
Sangster's Gan rail ier and win 
the Bessborough Stakes in 
addition to the Manx Derby. 
In this instance, though I 
prefer Western Dancer, who 
did this column a good turn 
when he won the Chester Cup. 
Con Horgan, his trainer, is 
adamant that he will not be 
inconvenienced by the switch 
back to 1W miles. 


At today's weights I fear the 
three fillies Dolka, Meteoric 
and Living Rough. The latter 
ran well fora maiden to finish 
fourth in the Irish 1,000. The 


Hadeer is undoubtedly a 
blot on the handicap if his 
recent Epsom run against 
Pennine Walk was right. But it 
still remains to be seen wheth- 
er he can string two good 


Finally. Sparsholt looks the 
best bet at Beverley to win the 
Sinnington Auction Stakes. 
He was unlucky last time out 
when beaten only a short head 
at Caiterick. 


The trainer win aid the four 
days with a 100% record in his 
new role as he has no more 
runners at the meeting. Poio- 
nia, the Irish trained favourite, 
could only finish sixth after 
making most of the early 
running. 

Pat Eddery was the jockey 
in form on the opening after- 
noon. Making his boldest bid 
for some time to win his fifth 
Jockey’s championship, the 
34-year-old Irishman landed a 
doable by capturing the first 
two races, on Pennine Walk 
and English Spring. 

Following a man in form has 
always been a golden maxim in 
racing and despite being 
baulked twice and knocked 
back to the rear of the field in 
the Queen Anne Stakes, 
Eddery still managed to pro- 
duce Pennine Walk with an 
electrifying burst of finishing 
speed to overwhelm Efisio and 
Tdeprompter. 

Jeremy Tree has worked 
wonders with Stavros 
Niarchos’s much improved 
fonr-year- old. Now undefeat- 
ed in three outings this season, 
Pennine Walk is to have his 
sights raised and is now likely 
to tackle the group one Sussex 




^.i cent 


Pennine Walk and Pat Eddery dear of Efisio in the Queen Ante Stakes (photograph: Chris Harris) 


Stakes at the Goodwood July 

meeting. 

Neither Efisio nor Tele- 
prompter were disgraced in 
their attempt to concede 61b to 
the speedy winner. Talking 
about Lord Derby's gallant 
gelding, Tdeprompter, BQl 
Watts, the six-year- old's 
trainer said: “A mile on a 
straight comse is no good to 
Tdeprompter nowadays. He 
has to try and stretch his rivals 
but that just makes him a 
sitting duck for anything with 
a tarn of foot I'll have to think 
hard about his next race, bat it 
could well be in the Eclipse 
Shakes at Sandown.” 

Eddery's luck certainly con- 
tinued in the Prince of Wales's 
Stakes. For not only did 
Bedtime encounter trouble in 
running, English Spring, 
whom Eddery brought with a 
brilliantly timed run to beat 
the favourite by a length, was 
only in yesterday's line-up as 
the jockey had persuaded Ian 
Balding to.' bring Paul 
Mellon's filly to Ascot in 


preference to going for a 
pattern race in Dortmund on 
Sunday. 

Without detracting from the 
merit of English Spring's vic- 
tory, Bedtime certainly ap- 
peared to be a little 
unfortunate. * When . Willie 
Carson tried to poll the 54 on 
favourite out to defiver his 
rhalteiiff *, the pair bumped 
Brian Rouse on Wylfa. Not to 
be outdone, Rouse returned 
die compliment and when 
Bedtime finally attacked the 
eventual winner, the six-year- 
old found another sprint be- 
yond his power. 

Lord Halifax, Bedtime's 
owner, took his defeat philo- 
sophically. “He's as good as 
ever and there'll certainly be 
another day. Out of 14 starts 
Bedtime has now won 10 
tunes, been second three times 
and. fourth on his only other 
run.” 


Balding was similarly de- 
lighted with English Spring. 
“She'S a good filly on her day 


and Pat rides her absolutely 
superbly. She might have 
another race or two but her 
career will soon end as she has 
just been tested as being in foal 
to Teenoso.” 

The St James's Palace 

Stakes saw the return to form 

of Sure Blade, whom Brent 
Thomson produced with a wefi 
timed run to wear down Green 

Desert in the last two furlongs. 
“I had originally planned to 
nub the running ,” said tfa^ 
Australian- born jockey. “But 
when I saw that Green Desert 
was running a bit freely with 
Walter S win born, I was happy 
to let him give me an early 
lead.” 

Barry Hills, ;the wfcmidg 
trainer, was delighted with the 
colt who was so strongly 
fended to beat Dancing Brave 
in tiie 2,000 Guineas where he 
eventual ly finished fifth. •' 

Hiik said “Brent says that 
the colt needs at least a mile 
and a quarter and he - quite 
simply got outpaced at New- 
market Tm not sure tint the 


colt is yet at his best as his 
work rider says tint he has not 
been moving to freely at 
exercise. It's been the same # 
with several of my horses who 4 
have some sort of muscular 
trouble. Fm going to run Sure 
Blade over a mfie and a 
quarter next, but f think that 
the Ecfipse would come too 
soon. If the owners agree I'd 

Kin* tp pkw tit anfaram ram . 

paten mrtwdmg the Match- 
i ffttw 1 International Stakes at 
York and the Champion 
Stakes at Newmarket.” 

Henry Cedi and Steve 
Cantheti had their first suc- 
cess of the meeting when 
Bonhomie proved too good for 
New Trojan and Nisuas in the 
Eng Edward Vfl Stakes. - 
Unfortunately Bonhomie re- 
turned to the unsaddling en- 



Cunagh 
for the Irish Derby on Satur- 
day. week,” saU CedL “but in 
tiie long term I think hell be a 
St Leger horse.

• ■•!' It looted in the first hour 
yesterday as though Glouces- 
tershire might have been beat- 
en by lunchtime. Yet they hdd 
on to draw, comfortably in the 
end. After Aihey had begun 
the resistance; two left- 
handers, Lloyds and Russell 
completed it, both making 
their highest scores of the 
season. 

Derbyshire were frustrated 
as well by the slowness of the 
pitch. It was one of those on 
which a batsman, once he gets 
in. can take an awful lot of 
shifting. The hail that was dug 
in would lift but- seldom 
awkwardly enough to -cause 
the batsmen much bother. If it 
turned,' it did so only gently. 

Miller wheeled away for 34 
successive overs without ever 
making anything fizz. 1 - 

In the second over of the 
morning Bainbridge was 
caught at the wicket off Mal- 
colm, a good ball that lifted a 
little and left him. Curran’s 
aggression was cut short when 
he skied an attempted hook, 
the ball not short enough for 
the shot. When Tomlins .was 
caught off bat and pad at 
forward short leg. Gloucester- 
shire were still 31 runs behind, 
with five wickets down and 
not a lot to come. Derbyshire 
should have gone on to win 
from there. With Holding they 
no doubt would have done, or 
even with Mortensen, who is 
away playing for Denmark in 
the ICC Trophy. 

But once Lloyds had sur- 
vived a dose call for leg- 
before, sweeping at Miller, 

Derbyshire got stuck. Athey 
played like a top-class pro, and 
he looked (ike one once be had 
removed his helmet Although 
he had made nought in the 
first innings, he seems in good 
form for Headingley tomor- 
row. And when, soon after 
lunch, he was out caught at 
the wicket driving, Lloyds and 
Russell did their stuff admira- 
bly in a partnership of 127. . 


David Gower, stripped of 
the England captaincy and 
ignored as vice-captain, is now 
fighting to be fit for 
tomorrow's second CorahiO 
Test against India at 
Headingley. Chris Smith, of 
Hampshire, has hem called 
into the squad as cover. \ 

Gower injured a shoulder, 
colliding with an advertise- 
ment board, daring the fust 
Test at Lord's last week. He 
will have an injection tomor- 
row and a decision on whether 
he plays -- after a ran of 51 
consecntive Tests — will 

The draw was still not quite 
certain by lea, when Glouces- 
tershire were the equivalent of 
124 for six. But it almost was 
by the time Russell was 
missed at the wicket offTayior 
and it definitely was by the 
time Malcolm bowled him. 

Malcolm, a Jamaican, 
bowls in glasses, a rare sight in 
the day of the contact lens. 
Taylor bowls left-arm over the 
wicket, wildly at the moment 
but not without promise. 
Lloyds was too good for them 
all Hts 100 was the seventh of 
his career and his second for 
Gloucestershire. . He -drove 
well and swept frequently.

NORTHAMPTON: Warwick- 
shire (17 pis) beat Northampton- 
shire (5) by JJ7 runs. 

Warwickshire, whose stodgy 
firs! innings earlier in the match 
brought them criticism, looked 
by far the more purposeful ride 
yesterday as they gaincxl their 
first championship win this 
season. Northamptonshire were 
left a target of 295 in three and a 
half hours and their batting 
failed on a worn pitch against 
Smalfs pace and Gifford's left- 
aim spin. 

Gifford, a senior citizen in 
cricket verms, finished with six 
for 27 in 21.5 overs. The pitch 
only yielded him slow turn but. 
together with subtle changes of 
pace and flight, it enabled him 
to take five or more wickets in 
an innings for the ninetieth time 
in bis c a reer. Warwickshire won 
with 10.1 overs to spare. 

Small made the important 
early breakthrough when he 
dismissed Bailey' and Boyd- 
Mass. Bailey was bowled as he 
played back to a ball that kept 
low. He can hardly have enjoyed 
his recent makeshift role as an 
opening batsman. Six innings in 
the job in three-day matches 
have brought him 79 runs in the 
past fortnight and he will be 
thankful that Geoff Cook and 
Larkins return to the side today 
at Bath. 

Lamb began with two fours 
against Small but had already 
been beaten twice by Gifford 
before he moved out to try and 
drive the spinner and was 
bowled off a pad. Cape! hit 
across the line and Wild was 
held at silly point. North- 
amptonshire were 79 for five af 
lea. 

Gifford was abte lo keep six 
men clustered round the bat and 
Sione. who had fought hard for 
I OS minutes, was also held at 
silly point. Harper hit Gifford 
for a six and then missed a near 
full toss from the leg-spinner. 
Asif Din. There were some 


brave hits from Watenon but 
there could be no escape. 

Paul Smith and Amiss were . 
the main ' contributors as 
Warwickshire scored freely 
throughout the morning after 
they resumed at 32 for one. with 
an overall lead of 96 runs. Cape! 
found a good ball' to beat 
Katlichanan's defensive stroke 
bat Smith always looked con- 
fident. An on-drive for six 
against Harper that took him to 
his half-century was a fine 
stroke. 

Smith, who also hit 10 fours, 
was finally beaten by Nick Cook 
as he tried to turn the spinner to 
the leg-side. Cook bier bad Asif 
Din stumped. He took some 
punishment but bowled well 
enough to remind everyone that 
a run chase on the wearing pitch 
would not be easy, and so it 
proved.

LORD'S: Yorkshire (22pts) beat 
Middlesex (3) by 69 runs. 

Yorkshire gained their third 
championship victory of the 
rason yesterday, which took 
them into second place in the 
Britannic Assurance table with a 
game in hand over the leaders. 
Essex. 

Paul Jarvis, their 20-year-old. 
uncapped medium-pace bowler, 
captured six wickets for 47 to 
give him splendid match figures 
of 1 1 for 92. Middlesex, the 
county champions, were only 
briefly in the hunt. 

Middlesex are having a rough 
time of it in the championship 
this season — for indefinable 
reasons. Ganing has yet to score 
a first-class half-century and 
they have suffered numerous 
England calls and injuries; but 
there is mem to it than that. 

Their target was 257 in a 
minimum of 90 overs. The pitch 
looked a little worn and the 
bounce was occasionally vari- 
able but. as in the first innings, 
Middlesex did not look the pan. 
Had they been in their form of 
last season, they -would probably 
have won. 

Yorkshire's second innings 
was swiftly spent. Edmonds 
chughi and bowled Bairstow, 
and Cowans dealt with the tail 
to give him figures of four for 
49. As it transpired, a peltry 153 
was more than enough. 

Promising and determined 
though Miller clearly is. Middle- 

Jarvis and 
Penn 
recalled 

Kevin Jarvis and Chris Penn 
are recalled to the Kent party for 
the Britannic Assurance county 
championship match against 
Gloucestershire beginning today 
at Gloucester. They replace 
Graham Dilley and Richard 
Ellison who are on England 
duty. 

Neal Radford. Worces- 
tershire's leading bowler with 
1 30 county championship wick- 
ets since the start of last season, 
is doubtful for the match against 
Yorkshire. He has a side strain, 
and ifbefailsa fitness test, Steve 
McEwan could come in for bis 
first championship appearance 
of the summer. Paul Pridgeon is 
also added to the party. 

The Middlesex pace bowler, 
Wayne DanieL has recovered 
from a back injury and will play 
in the county championship 
match against Nottinghamshire. 
With Gatling. Slack. Em burry 
and Edmonds on Test match 
duty Keith Brown will open the 
innings with Miller, Carr will 
bat at Nol 5 and Tufhell. aged 
20. a slow left-arm bowler, will 
make his third championship 
appearance. 

■ Northamptonshire’s regular 
pair of opening batsmen. Cook 
and Larkins, both return after 
injury for the county champion- 
ship match against Somerset at 
Bath. Larkins has played only 
one championship game this 
season after damaging his right 
ankle playing football in April 
Cool ' 


By Ito Tennant 

sex are not getting their excellent 
starts of last summer without 
Barlow, who has back trouble 
and is likely to be missing for 
some rime- Slack drove airily to 
mid-off and Millar was bowled 
trying something extravagant. 

Butcher played too soon at 
Garrick and spooned his drive 
to cover. There was tope while 
Ganing remained, which he did 
for 37 runs. His dismissal was 
unfortunate, the ball from Jarvis 
kcepiira low. Middlesex were 
then 123 for fouT. Tea runs later 
Jarvis also trapped Radley leg 
before as be shaped to play to 
square-leg. 

Emburey. top scorer in the 
first innings, was bowled swish- 
ing across the line. Edmonds, 
whose scores these days do not 
match his potential, fell in 
likewise manner to his dismissal 
on Monday. The ball, just 
outside off-stump again, found 
him ■ out. Down ton put up 
dogged resistance but he, too. 
went to the lively Jarvis. 

Jarvis achieved 10 wickets in 
a match for the first time when 
he gained his fourth (eg before, 
against Hughes. He has the 
simple but great virtue of bowl- 
ing straight, at lively fast me- 
dium. and obtains movement 
off the pitch. His dismissal of 
Cowans gave him his eleventh 
wicket 

The last word, though, must 
be with Boycott The margin of 
victory was that of bis score in 


Yorkshire's first innings for 
which, it win be remembered, he 
was vilified.

Somerset’s win is 
roundly enjoyed 


By Alan Gibson 


BATH: Somerset (24pts ) beat 
Kent (4) by an innings and 24 
runs. 

I was wrong in thinking that 
the pitch would slay an easy 
player. The bounce varied, now 
low, now jumping, and Garner 
enjoyed bowling on h. Somerset 
had the match won by the 
middle of the afternoon. I think 
it lair to say that Kent did not 
bat very well. 

Garner, who seems .to have 
begun to settle into the special 
difficulties of a benefit season, 
took five for 56. impressively; 
Coombs, the slow left-armer. 
took two for 48: Marks, who as 
usual bowled more than anyone 
else, took three for 43. and ! 
rather suspect that this season 
he will achieve the double. 
Tavart. Christopher Cowdrey 
and Marsh put up some stout 
resistance, but never looked like 
saving the match. 

This was a very good win by 
Somerset who are looking a 
more efficient side under Roe- 


buck with every minute that 
passes. It was another lovely 
afternoon at Bath after a grey 
morning, and another crowd 
gathered round as the day went 
on to rejoice in the county's 
success.

do the trick demand met 


•M ■" 


Eton achieved a comfortable 
. 1 0-wicket victory over 
Charterhouse yesterday after 
dismissing them for 46 (George 
Chesterton writes). 

Charterhouse must have, regret- 
ted electing to bat as York, 
bowling sharp inswingers, found 
life in the wicket. Gough was 
caught behind off the fourth bail 
and York had three more vic- 
tims before the score reached 20. 

Only Gemmed offered serious 

resistance and was. the only 
Carthusian to reach double 
figures. Norman, bowling off- 
breaks. had five wickets in eight 
overs. The wicketkeeper. 
Tccger. was impressive and had 
two dumpings and a catch to his 
credit Teeger J3ter displayed 
excellent timing in making the 
highest score of the day as Ire. 
with Marleay. saw Eton to their 
target.

asked Lord's to rush through an 
emergency registration for Mark 
Allayne. aged 18. a batsman, to 
play against Keni at Gloucester

Essex are 
finally 
beaten by 
pace 

By Peter M arson 
Hampshire beat Essex by 
12 runs at Ilford, yesterday, to 
record their second success in 
the Britannic Assurance coun- 
ty championship. It had been 
a desperately close thing, with 
a lively pitch, whicn had 
provided the faster bowlers 
with a lethal cutting ed 
being the conclusive factor in 
a tense, often turbulenualways 
exciting match. 

It in die end Hampshire's 
triumph could be traced to 
Marshall's bowling and 
Connor's, then there had been 
sufficient room.too, for 
Cowley's off breaks and 
Maru's slow left arm bowling 
to play an important part. Nor 
would it do to pass over Robin 
Smith's and Parks' 
bat5tnenship in a steely perfor- 
mance on the first day or. 
Hampshire's achievement in 
ridding themselves of Gooch 
for a mere 20 runs in two 
innings. 

When Essex started out in 
the morning at 27 for two. 
Lever was there to take guard 
again, this time with EasL 
Lever was soon gone to a catch 
by Parks, another to have had 
a good match, and that 
brought in Border, upon 
whose square, compact frame 
Essex's hopes now rested. By 
lunch East had been run out, 
but Border had become estab- 
lished and Pringle had settled 
in as Essex came in at 109 for 
four, with victory 89 runs 
away. 

At 1 56, by when Border had 
got to 59, Essex must have 
been feeling resonaUy com- 
fortable and to a small degree, 
confident But, Border fell 
here, to the established firm of 
Parks and Marshall, and with 
Pringle out too, Marshall and 
Maru moved in to round up 
the remainder. Marshall fin- 
ished with four for 26 from 2 1 
overs — six for 86 in the match 
— and Maru. three for 74, and 
a match analysis of five for 
108. It was odd, though a fact 
no less that Lever, who had 
something to celebrate should 
be the one to be the least 
successful, and bis single wick- 
et, that of Terry, cost him 94 
runs. 

At Northampton, Smith 
made 83 and Amiss 62, as 
Warwickshire got to 230 for 
six before declaring. That left 
Northamptonshire, who ap- 
pear to have become firmly 
wedged in a grove in which 
maintaining the status quo has 
been the height of achieve- 
ment with 295 runs to win. 

In the Parks, it was reprise 
time once again, and one 
could feel only sympathy for 
Oxford's batsmen as they 
pulled on their climbing boots 
and made ready for an at- 
tempt on 186 runs, the total 
they needed to stave off defeat 
by an innings against 
Glamorpu.

RUGBY UNION 


Dodge included in 
World Cup squad 

By David Hands, Rugby Correspondent 


Paul Dodge, the Leicester 
centre, dropped by England last 
year after leading his country in 
seven internationals, has been 
restored to the squad which will 
prepare for next year's world 
tournament. He is one of 40 
players named by the Rugby 
Football Union yesterday who 
will receive details of the World 
Cup training programme eat 
Bisham Abbey on June 27 to 28. 

Dodge, aged 28. is one of three 
players whose representative ca- 
reers may be revived during the 
coming months. The others are 
Carte ton, now selected at centre 
but who first played on the wing 
for England in 1979 — a year 
later than Dodge's first cap — 
before being dropped in 1984 
and Rose, whose mature talent 
as a schoolboy was not sub- 
sequently borne out in senior 
rugby, despite the award of five 
caps in 1981 and 1982. 

- The squad contains II un- 
capped players and competition 
among them will be fired for the 
knowledge that several can- 
didates omitted from this initial 
squad will be doing their utmost 
during the 1986/87 season to 
indicate ibeir worth: players like 
Simon Smith, the Wasps wing. 
Hodgkinson (Nottingham). 
Morrison (Bath) and Skinner 
(Harlequins) spring to mind. 

The players, apart from com- 
ing 10 grips with the training 
programme being prepared for 
them, will also meet at Bisham 
the coaching management team 
which should be finalized by the 
end of this week. There will be a 
replacement for Brian Ashton as 
selector and coach of the backs 
(a leading candidate must be 
Alan Davies, the Nottingham 
coach) and an introduction to 
Tom McNab. the new 
conditioning adviser. 

As luck would have ft. the 
coming year can be divided into 
three sections: the first target 
will be the match between an 
England XV at Twickenham on 
October 11. Thereafter players 


outside the squad wilt be trying, 
via the divisional champion- 
ship. for places in the Five 
Nations championship which, 
for England, ends on March 7 
against Wales in Cardiff. 

The two months before the 
squad leaves for Australasia will 
be occupied not only by domes- 
tic competition but also, in &Q 
probability, by training camps 
abroad. This was suggested by 
Michael Weston, chairman of 
thesdcctore. after the B tour of 
Italy ended last month. Several 
members of the squad will be 
absent from Bisham because 
they are abroad: Andrew and 
Williams, for instance, are id 
Australia. 

It is a predictable squad in 
which One looks to see Simon 
Smith, the maturing Richmond 
stand-off half, pressing the bet- 
ter known Andrew and Barnes. 
Hannaford. the chirpy Glouces- 
ter scrum half, has come bound- 
ing up the rankings ahead of 
Moon (Nottingham). Bates 
(Wasps) and Youngs (Leicester). 
But ft would have done no harm 
to include among die stand-off 
halves. Cusworth. the Leicester 
captain, who remains, in my 
opinion, the most consistent 
performer in his position in the 
country.

YACHTING 


Three boats chosen 
for Sardinia Cup 


Marionette. Pocket Battleship 
and Full Pell were yesterday 
selected by the Royal Ocean 
Racing Club as the three boats 
to represent Britain in the 
Sardinia Cup in September. 

Marionette, skippered by 
Chris Dunning who is to captain 
the team, and Martin Gibson's 
Pocket Battleship, both Dubois- 
Humphry designs, foiled in their 
selection for the Admiral's Cup 
last reason but extensive 
modifications during the winter 
months have transformed their 
Performance- 

Pocket Battleship had major 


Marionette, which finished 
top points scorer in the trials, 
was also fitted with a new keel 
last winter and has had 1.0001b 
of ballast removed. Stephen 
Fein's Full Pelt, which won the 
De Guingand Bow) last week- 
end. is a new one tonne design 
by Ed Duboisand is the smallest 
in the team. 

Talking about their selection 
yesterday. Aisher said that his 
committee had decided to pick 
two large boats because both the 
lime on distance handicap sys- 
tem and extremes of weather 
experienced in the Medi terra- 


hull surgery to reduce 2.0001b of nean had favoured bigger yachts 
buoyancy from her aft quarters ‘ in the past while Full Pelt, which 
and was fitted with a redesigned 


bulb keel which, according to 
Robin Aisher. chairman of the 
selection committee, has made a 
marked improvement to the 
yacht's light air performance 


has also won British team 
selection for the One Ton Cup. 
will provide the cover necessary 
to compete against other teams 
sending smaller boats.

With no news from seven of 
the 41 yachts competing in the 
Cartsberg Transatlantic Race 
since the suut from . Plymouth 
1 0 days ago. despite the threat of 
time penalties to crews who 
failed to report their positions at 
least twice every five days, 
communication is proving to be 
big problem for the Royal 
Western Yacht Club organizers 
(Barry Pickthall writes). 

Yesterday the race office re- 
ceived only two reports from the 
front end of the fleet showing 
John Martin's 60ft South Af- 
rican Monohull and Tuna Ma- 
rine Voonrekker overtaking 
British Airways i. skippered by 
Robin Knox-Johnsion. the early 
pace-setter. The leaders are ex- 
pected lo reach the Newport 
Road Island finish by the 
weekend. 


La Spezia. Italy (AP) - The 
yacht. Iialia II. which was 
damaged and sunk in a crane 
accident on Sunday, will be 
repaired in lime to compete in 
ihe America's Cup in Australia, 
the crew said on Monday. 

Aldo Migliaccio, the skipper 
or the 12-metre yacht, said the 
vessel will be transported to a 
shipyard at Fano on Italy's 
north-east Adriatic coast and 
damage to the deck and hull will 
be repaired in about one month. 

The yacht was scheduled to 
depart for Australia on July 5. 
but the trip will be delayed until 
the end of July, he said. The 
Iialia II is scheduled to take pan 
in the America’s Cup qualifying 
competition in Penh beginning 
in October. The yacht sank in 
the harbour 


SPEEDWAY 


Bradford need a break 


By Keith Macklin 


British speedway badly needs 
an injection of confidence after 
the latest setback, a disastrous 
seventh place for Simon Wieg 
and Jeremy Doncaster in the 
world pairs final at Pocking. 
West Germany. 

After the defeat suffered in the 
international series against the 
Danes, and the death of Kenny 
Caner. a depressed England 
were looking for an uplift from 
the pairing of Wigg and Don- 
caster. Sadly, the English pair 
never got to grips, and the 
ultimate humiliation came 
when the Italians, who finished 
eighth, gained a maximum 
against the red-faced Britons. 

The comment of Eric 
Boocock. the English team man- 
ager. that the performance was 

"disastrous.'* is a gigantic under- 
statement The failure of the 
English pair after yean of top- 
two plarings was demoralizing. 

What made mailers worse 
was the fact that the Danes, 
inevitably, won again, though it 
needed a sudden death ride-off 
victory by Hans Nielsen over 
Kelly Moran, of the United 
States, to give Denmark the title 


after the Danes and the United 
States had tied in the pairs. If 
matters do not improve the 
Danes win sweep the board 
again everywhere, and 
England's battered stare will 
develop an outsize inferiority 
complex. 

At the moment there is noth- 
ing to suggest that Gundersen 
and Nielsen will not repeat their 
double act in the world individ- 
ual championships at Katowice, 
in Poland, in August, and they 
are likely also to mb our noses in 
the dirt in the world team cup. 
Nor can it be taken for granted 
in the light of recent events on 
the track that England will win 
the series against a weakened 
United Stales squad in 
September. 

The weekend mood was not 
improved by yet another tan- 
trum from the enfant terrible of 
speedway. Michael Lee. the 
former world champion, who 
has never seemed to possess the 
stability of personality to match 
his outstanding riding ability. 
Nol for the first time Lee failed 
to turn up for a meeting, and 
once again Kings Lynn suffered

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JUNE 18 1986 


TENNIS: WIMBLEDON DRAW GIVES SEEDS IN MEN’S SINGLES SOME DIFFICULT EARLY MATCHES 


Chatrier is 
firm on 


FOOTBALL 


ive days to go 
and tented 
village is ready 
for action 

By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


Chris Lloyd, three times 
champion and seven times 
runner-up. has played at Wim- 
bledon for 14 consecutive 
years and has only once failed 
to reach the semi-finals. That 
was in 1983. when Kathy 
Jordan beat her in the third 
round. The draw suggests that 
this year they will meet in the 
fourth round. 

Steffi Graf, who had been 
seeded third, picked up some 
virus and withdrew on medi- 
cal advice. So the remaining 
seeds moved up and Miss 
Jordan, the next in line, came 
in at 16th and was drawn in 
Mrs Lloyd's section. Miss 
Jordan has a good record at 
Wimbledon and advanced to 
the semi-finals in 1984. 

The seedings and draw sug- 
gest that the last eight women 
will be Martina Navratilova v 
Manuel a Maleeva, Claudia 
Kohde-Kilsch v Kathy 
Rinaldi. Pam Shriver v Hana 
Mandiikova. and Helena 
Sukova v Mrs Lloyd. The 
corresponding mens' pairings 
should be Ivan Lendl v An- 
ders JarrydL Jimmy Connors v 
Joakim Nystrom, Stefan 
Ed berg v Boris Becker and 
Henri Leconte v Mats 
Wilander. 

There are 16 seeds in each 
singles. The upper seeds in the 
womens' event have no partic- 
ular cause for anxiety in the 
first round in the second 
round Miss Rinaldi must be 
wary of Jo Dune, and 
Caterina Lindqvist should 
have an equally interesting 
match with the more experi- 
enced Anne Smith. Stephanie 
Rehe, aged 16. and competing 
for only the second time, will 
do well to reach the third 
round. Wendy Turnbull faces 
the prospect of beginning her 
fifteenth Wimbledon with two 


matches against younger 
Australians. 

Connors is resting a trouble- 
some groin muscle. The iqjury 
occured when he was playing 
Robert Seguso at Queen's 
Club last Saturday. Assuming 
that Connors decided to “give 
it a go", be will play Seguso in 
the first round. Another recent 
casualty. Pax Cash, will take 
on the seeded Guillermo 
Vilas. 

Other seeds with potentially 
tough first round matches are 
Wilander (against Scott Davis, 
who reached the last 16 two 
years ago), Andres Gomez 
(John Fitzgerald). Kevin 
Curren (Eric Jelen). Brad Gil- 
bert (Mark Woodforde). 
Mikael Pernfors (Mike 
De Palmer) and Martin Jaile 
(Guy Forget). Pernfors and 
Jaite are competing for the 
first time. The older genera- 
tion may find much to delight 
them in the match between 
Vijay Amritraj and Wojtek 
Fibak. The second round 
promises a good match be- 
tween Edberg and Paul 
Annacone. 

Britain's leading players can 
not complain about their luck: 
John Lloyd v Christo Sleyn, 
Jeremy Bates v Todd Witsken, 
Miss Durie v Regina 
Marsikova, Anne Hobbs v 
Belinda Borneo, Annabel 
Croft v Niege Dias, and Sara 
Gomer v Anne White (proba- 
bly without last year’s white 
body-slocking). 

Yesterday the tented village 
was ready for action, the lawns 
looked superb and (showing 
better timing than usual) the 
roses were in bloom in the 
garden of the lodge by Somer- 
set Road. Wimbledon was 
swarming with workmen and 
officials, cars and vans. There 
are just five days to go.

Mary Joe Fernandez, the 
American schoolgirl, was given 
a lesson in grass court tennis at 
the Pilkington Glass Women's 
Championships at Eastbourne 
yesterday. Founeen-year-old 
Miss Fsmandez. who reached 
the quarter-finals of the French 
Open in Paris two weeks ago, 
found Svetlana Parkhomenko, 
her Russian opponent, had too 
much power and accuracy for 
her to handle. 

Miss Parkhomenko was in 
control for much of the match — 
although she allowed Fernandez 
the opportunity for a break- 
through in the second set which 
the teenager was quick to accept 
—and won the match 6-4. 2-6. 6- 
3. 

Jo Durie, the British No. 2, 
took the first set from Ros 
Fairbank, of South Africa. 7-5 
on her third set poim. Durie had 


served for the set at 5-4 but was 
broken after Fairbank disputed 
a line calL The second set 
proved equally tight but Durie, 
after having her service broken 
for 4-5. held on to win the match 

7- 5. 7-5. 

Dune's doubles partner. Anne 
Hobbs, also went through to the 
thinf round with a gutsy 2-6, 6- 
2. 6-3 victory over Bettina 
Bunge, of West Germany, the 
No.l6seed.

Jeremy Bates, the British 
No. 2. seems to be finding his 
best form at a good time. His 
straight sets victory in a mob- 
able Davis Cup preview against 
John Fitzgerald, of Australia, in 
the Bristol Trophy on Monday 
was followed yesterday by an- 
other. 6-4. 6-3. against Milan 
Srejber. die Czechoslovakian 
seeded Na 3. 

This lime, .against an oppo- 
nent who made a lot of mistakes 
in a swirling wind. Bates did not 
have to play so well. His 
rewards, however, may be even 
more encouraging. The seeded 
Ricardo Acuna has been re- 
moved from his path by Simon 
YouL the Australian, so he has 
the prospect of a quarter-final 
place for the second successsive 
year. Furthermore, Bates will 
pick up valuable grand prix 
bonus points for beating a man 
in the top 50. 

Srejber. at 6ft 7in and IS 
stone, puts one in mind of 
Vladimir Zednik. another giant 
Czechoslovakian. But the 
admirably steady Bates, with his 
new-found way of relaxing, 
showed little concern at faring 
an opponent with arms like 
tentacles at the net He chipped 
and blocked his returns low and 
played conservatively in the 
rallies. Surprisingly, he had to 
do little more. He was rewarded 
by a break of serve in the ninth 


game, and was soon on top in 
the second set as welL 

Perhaps Srriber was dis- 
concerted by playing against a 
man with whom he has prac- 
tised and who therefore Knew 
his weaknesses. The Chech 
served four double-faults in the 
third game of the second set 
and. after dropping it, bad the 
look of a loser. 

Another seed to fell was the 
left-handed Tom Gulliksoo, in 
three sets to the man with the 
game's greatest grin. Vijay 
Amritraj. A tent collapsed with 
aloud bang in the second set but 
Amritraj, who once played the 
straight man to a cobra in a 
James Bond film, was fright- 
ened neither by that nor his 
opponent. 

Britain's other first day hero. 
James Turner, a local 20-year- 
old who beat Stephen Shaw, this 
time lost 7-6, 6-1 to Tim 
Wilkison, the second seed. But 
he will remember the missed 
forehand ground stroke that cost 
him a break in the eighth game 
and the over-eagerness while 
three set points disappeared in 
the 12th. But in all this there 
were both lessons and hope for 
the future.

Olympic 

status 

By Richard Evans 

Philippe Chatrier, fee presi- 
dent of tbe International Tennis 
Federation, will refuse to accept 
any restrictions, either of age or 
professional status, na players 
wishing to compete in fee 1988 
Olympic Games in SeonL 

“If tbe IOC executive commit- 
tee insist on an age limit or any 
kind of definition ns regards 
professionalism, I will poll ten- 
nis out of fee Olympics,” 
Chatrier said during a visit to 
London yesterday. “We . have 
worked very bad to get tennis 
accepted as a medal sport be- 
cause we fed it is ga«d for fee 
world wide game and good for the 
Olympics bat I am not going to 
have the sport pushed hack into 
fee Dark Ages as a result 

“That is simply mo high a 
price to pay. If necessary we will 
wait until 1992 when, hopefully, 
certain elements of the Olympic 
movement will be more ap to 
date.” 

An age limit of 23 was the 
latest suggestion put forward as 
a meaningless compromise in an 
attempt to appease those mem- 
bers who could not stomach the 
thought of unriti-mfDIoiiaires 
like John McEnroe or Chris 
Lloyd competing in the Olym- 
pics. However, as Boris Becker 
wOl be just as rich aod only 20 iu 
two years time, fee whole idea is 
ridiculous. 

Dr Juan Samaranch, presi- 
dent of the IOC, who had a long 
and sympathetic discussion wife 
M Chatrier after the final of the 
French Open 10 days ago, has 
been trying to persuade the 
Eastern bloc countries as well as 
a surprisingly reactionary 
United States Olympic Commit- 
tee that the time has came to 
forget all distinctions between 
professionals and so-called ama- 
teaus. 

Some months ago. Seflior 
Samaranch insisted: “Tbe word 
amatera 1 is a total irrelevance as 
far as the modem Olympics me 
concerned. We simply want fee 
best athletes in every sport to 
compete for no pay providing 
they are in good «*«wihtg with 
their national associations.” 

The Eastern bloc cou n tries 
are, of coarse, opposed to that 
because their “fflatenrs" are 
fall-time participants la their 
chosen sport. “It creates an 
imbalance which is IDomcal and 
unfair,” Seflior Samaranch said. 

M Chatrier is harsher. “It is 
total hypocrisy,” said the 
Frenchman who was at the 
forefront of the fight to initiate 
open tennis in 1968. “We got rid 
of that land of thing in oar game 
a long time ago and I absolutely 
refuse to kt the Russians pro- 
duce Chesnokov in Seoul as an 
amateur if half tbe players of his 
level are not allowed to play.” 

Tbe Soviet Tennis Federation 
was disappointed To find that M 
Chatrier was treating Andrei 
Chesnokov as the true blue 
amatera- they insisted he was at 
the French Open. Normally 
Chesnokov has to hand over M 
per cent of his prize-money to 
the Federation bat in Paris that 
tamed out to be 80 per cent of 
nothing. 

“We paid his hotel expenses 
but as an amateur they really 
can't expect him to get anything 
else,” Chatrier said 

Chesnokov, who beat the tide 
bolder. Mats Wilander, in Paris 
and is now ranked 43rd on tbe 
ATP computer world rankings, 
Is the In n ocent pawn in all this 
power play. A young man of 
great charm and dignity, he is 
rapidly becoming as popular 
with his fellow players as was 
Alex Metreveti. the Wimbledon 
finalist of 1973, who received 
similar treatment from tbe ATP 
two years later when it was 
decided to withhold his prize- 
money (which averaged about 
S7S.000 a year) because it was 
being used to fund tbe Soviet 
tennis programme. 

Tennis alone is not going to 
force either the Russians, or, 

ironically, the- Americans (who 
are worried about their «!fc^ 
sports) to give up on the 
convenient concept of amateur^ 
ism hot M Cha trier's tough 
stand may hasten fee day when 
the IOC realize the absurdity of 
allowing Carl Lewis to compete 
because be is not what they 
choose to call a professional 
while barring John McEnroe 
because he is.

Wood suffers loss of confidence 


Jane Wood threw awajr her 
chance of reaching Wimbledon 
for the first time when she was 
beaten in the second round of 
the qualifying lournameni at 
Roehampton yesterday. 

The 1 9-year-okl from Enfield 
wasted no fewer than five match 
points as she went down 6-1. 3- 
6. 9-7. to Jane Forman of the 
United States. 

It looked as if the British giri 
had shrugged off a disastrous 


first set when she came back 
strongly to levei the match, but 
in a light decider her concentra- 
tion and nerve let her down at 
the crucial moment. 

Britain's interest in the 
women's qualifying event ended 
when Norfolk's Judy Rich was 
overcome 6-2. 6-0 by the South 
African. Diane Van Rensberg.

Joughin and three other rid- 
ers. one of them belonging to the 
small contingent of amateurs in

Maradona avenges 
defeat by 
Uruguay in 1930 


Puebla. Mexico (AP) - Argen- 
tina bad to wait So years before 
beating Uruguay in a World 
Cup match, but they edged the 
South American champions out 
1-0 on a goal from Pedro 
Pascufii on Monday to move 
into the quarter-finals. 

Pasculli scored 42 minutes, 
into a game dominated by Diego 
Maradona, the brilliant 
Aracmineforward, to avenge a 
4-2 defeat by Uruguay in the 
first World Cup in .1 930. 

Argentina now meets tbe 
winner of the match between 
England and Paraguay, to be 
played in Mexico City this 
evening. 

Uruguay appeared hypno- 
tized by Maradona's magic but 
it was Pasculli who capitalized 
on one of the many defensive 
mistakes by Uruguay. 

Argentina, the 1978 cham- 
pion. could have scored at least 
a couple more goals, but 
Maradona found little response 
from the rest of the team to his 
flashes bf class. “Maradona was 
a great example. He showed how 
to play a real (cam game.” 
Carlos Bilardo, the Argentine 
coach, said after the match. 

Uruguay tried desperately to 
level the match in tbe last 
minutes, but they threatened the 
Argentine net only once. It was 
expected to be a rough game and 
Luigi Agnoiin.tbe Italian ref- 
eree. issued -five yellow cards, 
four of them against Uruguay. 
The game ended in driving rain 
whidi drenched the 26,000 fens 
in the Cuauhtemoc) stadium in 
Puebla. 

Omar Bonus, the Uruguayan 
coach, had been banned from 
tbe bench after incidents against 
Scotland in his team's last first- 
round match. He watched tbe 
game from the stands and 
communicated with his reserve 
players by walkie-talkie. 



r j j U • 


Bilardo stressed that the game 
was very ten sc. “There is always 
a lot of tension when we play 
Brazil or Uruguay, and I know 
how bard it is for the players.” 
he said. 

Pascul IPs goal came when the 
Uruguayan defence twice failed 
to dear a slowly boundng ball 
near the goalmouth and Jorge 
VaJdano, the Argentine winger, 
slipped it to Pasculli.The 26 
year-bid forward, who plays for 
Lecce in Italy, easily slammed 
the ball into the empty goal from 
10 yards. 

Tbe Argentines, inspired by 
Maradona's clever passes, 
missed several easy chances. 
Maradona himself hit the cross- 
bar in the 21 si minute with a 
free kick from 30 yards. 

He also found Jorge 
Vaklano's head just in from of 
the net, but the winger was off 
target. And in the 48th minute it 
was Pasculli who missed a 
Maradona cross from the right 
after the midfield player had 
eased past three defenders in an 
irresistible dribble. 

Uruguay's only real chance 
came two minutes from time 
when Pumpido, the Argentine 
goalkeeper, bad trouble palming 
away a shot by Paz from 20 
yards. 

. Few people will be sorry to 
see Uruguay leave the world 
stage. Argentina, however, are 
looking capable of repeating 
their 1978 world triumph. 


The art of 
making 
a billion 
enemies 

Ondina Viera, manager of 
Uruguay hi 1966, once said: 
“Other nations have their his- 
tory. Uruguay has its football.*' 
This is not a Doctertyesqoe boa 
mot. It is dose to king the 
literal truth. Hie less prominent 
a place a nation has in the 
international money-and-power 
league table, the more important 
it finds any sporting, triumphs 
feat cone its way. 

C L R James, for instance, 
writes of fee vital importance of 
cricket to tbe emerging West 
Indian. nation in feat outstand- 
ing book Beyond A Boundary. 

Sporting success and spotting 
heroes play a crucial part in fee 
way that natioas see themselves. 

This explains, perhaps, the 
desperate Uruguayan hanger for 
success. Sporting success is, for 
any nation, a kind of Falklands 
factor. President Reagan 
beamed »nd bloomed in the sun 

of nations' approval as the 

Olympic Carnes were turned 
into fee United States Festival 
or Victory, while fee rest of fee 
world threw op to the tune of 
America’s whooping cheers. 

That is what fee televised 
mega-sporting events do for a 
nation. However, you cannot say 
that tbe Olympics changed our 



Santana critical 
after easy win 


Brazilian coach Tele Santana 
yesterday tokl his midfield play- 
ers. Junior and Socrates, to 
improve — and then named an 
unchanged side their World Cup 
quarter-final on Saturday. 

“Junior and Socrates did not 
perform as they should. They 
were raving Poland room to 
attack, said Santana after the 
convincing 4-0 rout of Poland in 
the second round of tbe 
competition. 

Poland twice struck the wood- 
work and Boniek was inches 
away with a spectacular over- 
head kick. Despite this. Brazil 
managed to maintain their 
record of not having conceded a 
goal in these championships. 

Santana feels his side is 
improving all the time and they 
looked to have plenty in reserve 
against the Poles. Socrates con- 
vened a 29th minute penalty to 
give Brazil the breakthrough. 
Then the Brazil full back. 
Jos mar, made it two goals in 
two internationals with a stun- 
ning 54th minute solo effort. 

Zico came on for Socrates 
after 70 minutes and his 
flamboyant skills spurred a be- 
lated burst with Edinho finish- 
ing clinically after 77 minutes. 
Six minutes later Careca scored 
from the penalty spot after Zico 
had been fouled down by rhe 
Polish goalkeeper. Mlynarczyic. 

“We looked more determined 
after the interval and when we. 


scored a second goal the Polish 
tide surrendered.” said Santana. 
After the victory. Brazil vi- 
brated to the sound of samba as 
crowds flooded into the streets 
to celebrate. 

Fans donned the national 
colours of yellow, blue and 
green, celebrating into the early 
hours, blocking traffic and danc- 
ing on the rooftops and bonnets 
of cars, lorries and buses.

perception of the Americans: 
they merely reconfirmed all our 
worst fears. Uruguay, ia seeking 
unconfined joy and harmony on 
the domestic front through 
sporting success, have deal t 
themselves a crashing Mow 
internationally. We have a new 
perception of the nation. 

Through their approach to 
their football fat the World Cup, 
Uruguay have made, perhaps, a 
bill ion enemies around fee 
globe. Perhaps never in history 
have so many people united in 
casual loathing: seldom can so 
many people have revelled, not 
in a sporting victory but in a 
defeat as Uruguay went down to 
Argentina. 

Uruguay have not only played 
like cheats, they have played 
like trained cheats; men en- 
cooraged, instructed and 
coached to cheat And that is 
now bow the world sees the 
entire Uruguayan nation. It Is 
fruitless to say this is trivial and 
unfair. It is fact 

Anyone asked to name one 
G banian and one Antiguan 
would offer Lloyd and Richards. 
The most famous Brazilian in 
' history is PeU. Across the 
world, millions hare an affection 
and a respect for Brazil — 
because they have watched Pele 
score goals on television. Brazil 
haw given us great pleasures. 

Uruguay could also have given 
ns similar pleasures, could have 
been the stars of the tournament. 
We could hare smiled every time 
we beard the word Uruguay, 
with memories of the team's 
huge skills. But instead, for 
years afterwards, we will make 
fee equation: Uruguay equals 
cheats. We know: We saw them 
on .telly. The Uruguayan team 
hare made a blonder bigger than 
they know.

ATHLETICS 


Moorcroft has to withdraw 


By Pat Botcher, Athletics Correspondent 


David Moorcroft's comeback 
has not been as immediately 
successful as he had hoped, and 
he has withdrawn from the 
Kodak AAA championships 
5000 metres at Crystal Palace on 
Saturday. 

Due to injury. Moorcroft had 
not raced on the track since the 
Olympic Games in 1 984. and he 
was disappointed with his mile 
of 4min 3.56sec last week in 
Gdieborg when he finished a 
distant second to Steve Crabb. 

Moorcroft was philosophical 
about his decision to withdraw 
yesterday, conceding that ft had 
probably cost him the chance of 
Commonwealth selection and 
the opportunity to defend the 
title he won in Brisbane. 

Bui there may still be an 
opening for Moorcroft. since, at 
the championship press . con- 
ference yesterday the selectors 
reversed their stated policy of 
the previous day (which, in turn 
was different from the stated 
policy of last week): and ac- 
cepted that competitors . like 
Sebastian Coe could miss the 


championships since he is in- 
jured. and still be considered for 
selection for the 800/1500 me- 
tres ‘double* in Edinburgh. 

Accordingly, the press con- 
ference was like one of those 
Hollywood courtroom dramas 
where Bugsy and his gang, alias 
the selectors, ‘hide 1 behind the 
Fifth A mend mem. which, for 
those of you a lot younger than 
the AAA selectors, is the 1 United 
Stales constitutional amend- 
ment which allows an individ- 
ual to avoid answering a 
question if he is likely to 
incriminate himself 

Years of verbal sparring be- 
tween press and selectors have 
honed this act to a level of 
perfect incomprehensibility to 
anyone outside British athletics, 
as the mystified looks on the 
feces of the Australian athletes 
present proved. 

Yet John Dinan and Chris 
Perry have had a taste of this " 
doublespeak " in the recent past. 
Dinan and Perry were cham- 
pion sprinters on the Australian 
professional circuit until two 


years ago, when they tired of tbe 
handicapping system which 
sometimes meant that they 
started up to nine metres down 
on less speedy opponents, and 
began the process of reinstate- 
ment to the 'amateur' ranks. 

Now ft would take a gaggle of 
ieamed friends’ to explain how 
Dinan. whose biggest prize was 
AS6.500 (£3.000) for winning 
the Staweil Gift in 1981 was a 
professional, and Unford Chris- 
tie. sitting next to him. is an 
amateur after his I0.04sec 
United Kingdom record for the 
100 metres two weeks ago 
qualified him for USS5.000 
(£3300) for each international 
race. 

The' England selectors could 
probably explain it. But then 
nobody would understand 
them. 

Christie. Dinan and Perry 
meet in what should be a great 
100 metres on Friday evening, 
the first day of the champion- 
ships. And since this is a 
national championship, the 
winner only gets a medal

Hoddle the key in a 
test of character 


After spending a fortnight 
out on the northern periphery 1 
of the World Cup, England 
today step into the centre of 
the competition. On the clos- 
ing day of the second round, 
they will be joined by Para- 
guay inside the Aztec Stadi- 
um. the huge towering arena 
where the final itself will be 
staged in 1 1 days lime. 

The performances in Mon- 
terrey were mere dress re- 
hearsals, which is just as well, 
h took Bobby Robson three 
hours to find his most cohe- 
sive and appropriate line-up, 
by which time they had de- 
servedly lost their claim of 
being Europe's strongest con- 
tenders. But in the first 45 
minutes against Poland they 
restored most of their 
reputation. 

Dave Sexton, one of 
Robson's roving spies, rates 
the first half last Wednesday 
as the best football he has seen 
so far in the tournament. His 
vision may be impaired by 
patriotism but, apart from the 
Paraguayan contingent here 
and those back home in their 
own country, the world is 
again predicting an English 
triumph. 

That is not necessarily in 
their favour. Robson's side 
have over the last four years 
climbed the highest peaks 
when least expected. When it 
appeared that they were on 
their way directly out of the 
European championships, 
they won convincingly in 
Hungary. When they were 
seemingly facing humiliation 
in South America, they con- 
quered Brazil . 


From Stuart Jones, Football Correspondent, Mexico City 

When their successful build- scoring midfield player, are 
up was under the greatest 
threat, against the Soviet 
Union in Tblisi and against 
Mexico in Los Angeles. En- 
gland were at their most 
impressive. When they were 
about to stumble out of the 
first round last week, they 
exploded against Poland. 

Their unpredictability, in oth- 
er words, has been predictable. 



Hoddle, who must be an 
influential figure today if En- 
gland are to go through to take 
on Argentina in the quarter- 
finals. concedes that “There is 
something about the English 
character. When we were in 
the deepest trouble, that is 
when we produced our best" 
They might be in the deepest 
trouble if they do not produce 
their best 

Robson was warned by a 
South American journalist 
four months ago that even 
though Paraguay had never 
before advanced beyond the 
first round, they would be 
dangerous opponents. Sexton, 
recognized as an expert in the 
tactical field, stressed that they 
are positive, almost carefree, 
when they break out of a less 
gifted defence. 

Cabanas, their centre-for- 
ward, and Romero, their goal- 


scoring midfield player, 
the two names that may 
become frighteningly familiar 
to those who watch the game 
on television tonight. The 
pair, two of half a dozen 
foreign exiles, have shared all 
four of Paraguay's goals so far. 

Their suppliers are Mendo- 
za and Guasch, mongers who 
will be in direct conflict with 
the admirable Sansom and 
Stevens, the Everton full back 
who appears 10 have rediscov- 
ered his form. England should 
not be embarrassed out on the 
flanks but in the middle there 
remains a cause for concern. 

Although Robson has yet to 
announce his side, the forma- 
tion he chose during 
Monday's training session 
suggested that he will make 
only the one change enforced 
by the suspension of Fenwick. 
Martin, West Ham United's 
defender who looks so com- 
fortable when playing for his 
club but so hesitant when 
representing his country, 
should be the Tone newcomer. 

Martin has been selected as 
Butcher's partner a mere three 
times in the last two years and 
he foiled to inspire confidence 
either against Northern Ire- 
■ land, Israel or, more recently, 
Canada. But Robson has little 
option. Stevens. ofTottenham 
Hotspur, would be an adven- 
turous and risky solution to 
the problem that has existed 
for some years. 

If Bryan Robson had been 
folly fit. he would have been 
an ideal, if unconventional, 
replacement England's man- 
ager will reluctantly resist the 
temptation to reintroduce him 


Painful memories give the 
Danes an added incentive 


Queretaro (Reuter) — Den- 
mark have a score to settle 
when they play Spain in the 
second round of the World 
Cup finals tonight Two years 
ago Spain ended Denmark's 
glorious run in the European 
Championship when they beat 
them on penalties following a 
i-l draw after extra time in 
their semi-final in Lyons, 
France. 

Denmark had the better of 
that game but their inexperi- 
ence in major tournaments let 
them down as they lost their 
sense of urgency after taking 
an early lead. 

The Danish team have 
stayed together and matured 
into an even more powerful 
force as their 100 per cent 
record in the toughest first 
round group has proved. 
Though Sepp Piontek. their 
trainer, and the players are 
trying to play down sugges- 
tions that it will be a grudge 
match, it is dear the Danes are 
determined not to repeat the 
mistake of two years ago. 

The two teams already 
know each other for too well 
for their liking. A mix-up by 
FIFA, the game's governing 


body, has left them lodged in 
the same hotel for the past 
four days despite protests 

Piontek said the loss of 
Frank Amesen, suspended af- 
ter being sent off against West 
Germany, would be a blow as 
the right-sided midfield pbyer 
had been his best player in the 
first three games. But the good 
news for the Danish trainer is 
that Bertelsen, their defensive 
midfield player, is ready to 
return after an ankle iqjury. 

Elkjaer, joint top scorer of 
the finals with four goals, has 
also recovered from a thigh 
injury and will resume his 
partnership up front with 
Laudrup. Hoegh, who played 
in the 2-0 victory against West 
Germany although previously 
regarded as the third choice 
goalkeeper, is likely to be 
preferred to the erratic 
Rasmussen. 

While Denmark's dazzling 
play has made them the talk of 
ihe finals, Spain have ad- 
vanced in less spectacular 
style. But there is no doubt 
they are formidable oppo- 
nents with an excellent mix of 
workers and skilful ball 
players. 


You are a 
Labour councillor 
and your child

scholarship. 

Do you 

let him take up 
the offer? 




It's a question of Scruples. 



THE GAME OF MORAL DILEMMAS. iOj 


The Spaniards are also 
handicapped by injury. Their 
sweeper. Maced a, had to re- 
turn home soon after the 
tournament started and key 
midfield player, Gordillo, is 
not likely to be fit to play 
agaiDst Denmark after a bad 
leg injuiy. 

The Danes will have to.keep 
a. dose watch on Butrageno. 
Spain's gifted forward, and 
Caldere. who scored twice 
from midfidd against Algeria. 
Caldere also made a name for 
himself in another way when 
he became the first player of 
the finals to foil a dope test, 
though he was not suspended. 
The drug be took — after a 
bout of food poisoning — was 
apparently prescribed by team 
officials. 

The winners of tonight's 
match will play Belgium, sur- 
prise winners over the Soviet 
Union, in the quarter-finals. 
Probable teams: 

DENMARK: L Hoegh; S Busk, M 
Olsen, i Nielsen, H Andersen. K

Paying the 
price 
of failure 

Warsaw (Reuter) - A sad- 
dened Antoni Piechniczek has 
resigned as Poland's manager 
after the 4-0 defeat by Brazil 
on Monday which knocked 
them out of the World Cup 
finals. 

“I do not blame anybody 
but someone else should take 
over the national team," 
Piechniczek told Polish televi- 
sion at the Jalisco stadium in 
Guadalajara shortly after the 
match. 

Piechniczek. who has held 
the job for five years and said 
before leaving for Mexico he 
would consider stepping down 
after the World Cup. coached 
Poland to third place in the 
1982 toumamenL Zbigniew 
Boniek, Poland's leading for- 
ward. speaking in the same 
programme, hinted that he 
might also give up interna- 
tional fooibalL but said he had 
yet to make a final decision. 
Earlier this year he said he 
would end his international 
career after the finals. 

Rabah Saadane. the Algeri- 
an manager.has also paid the 
price for World Cup failure. 
Saadane. and his two assis- 
tants. were dismissed by the 
Algerian Football Federation 
because “results were in total 
contradiction with the efforts 
made and the means 
provided'". Algeria, outshone 
by African neighbours Moroc- 
co, drew l-i with Northern 
Ireland but lost 1-0 to Brazil 
and 3-0 to Spain.The federa- 
tion criticized the team For 
“laxity of technical training 


at the start, though he may yet 
invite him to join the substi- 
tutes. The midfield line of 
four, so much more flexible 
and full of variety In the 
absence of -the captain and 
vice-captain, should not be 
disturbed anyway. 

Reid's oxygen tank may run 
out before the end but his 
short game was the perfect foil 
for Hoddle's longer version 
against Poland If Hodge and 
Steven, the two youngsters 
stationed on either side of 
them, also reproduce their 
inspiration of a week ago, 
Paraguay’s attack will become 
significantly less relevant than 
England's. . 

Lineker, now that he has 
recovered from his wrist inju- 
ry. is once more a fearsome 
force and Beardsley is improv- 
ing rapidly with each 
appearance. 

Cayetano Re. Paraguay’s 
manager, says that he will 
retain the side that held 
Belgium 2-2 in their final first 
round tie. He has also predict- 
ed that England win “melt" 
but his words have become 
notorious. After speaking his 
mind too loudly during the 
game against Belgium, FIFA 
imposed on him a fine of 
10,000 Swiss francs. By this 
evening he may not choose to 
be so voluble. 

The Englishmen who are 
expected to keep Re relatively 
mute and Paraguay subdued 
are Shilton, Stevens (of 
Everton). Butcher, Martin. 
Sansom. Steven. Hoddle, 
Reid. Hodge. Lineker and 
Beardsley.

More expulsions 
in cup of shame 


Mexico City (AP) — Refer- 
ees already have shown the 
red card more often in Mexico 
than they did in Spain and the 
growing number of bookings 
indicates that the 1986 World 
Cup is one of the least 
disciplined on record. 

Six players were sent off in 
the first round alone, one 
more than from the 1982 
World Cup in Spain or the 
1974 tournament in West 
Germany. And through the 
first four games of the second 
round, the total number of 
cautions is only six short of 
the 99 yellow cards shown in 
Spain, according to statistics 
provided by FIFA, the sport's 
intentional ruling body. 

The men who have been 
dismissed are Sweeney, of 
Canada, Wilkins, of England, 
Gorgis, of Iraq, Bossio and 
Batista, of Uruguay, and 
Amesen, of Denmark. 

There were 81 bookings 
during the 36 first-round 


games and the total has risen 
to 93 since the start of the 
second round on Sunday. By 
contrast there were 56 book- 
ings in the 36-match first 
round in Spain and 64 in all 
after four second-round 
matches. 

Uruguay, who have been 
warned by FIFA about their 
rough play, lead the tourna- 
ment in bookings with nine. 
Four of those came on Mon- 
day against Argentina, includ- 
ing one for Bossio who had 
just returned from a one-game 
suspension which he received 
.after being dismissed during 
the team's 6-1 beating by 
Denmark. 

Iraq and South Korea, who 
have both been eliminated, 
led this year’s original field of 
24 teams in bookings after the 
first round with eight and 
seven respectively. Other 
countries with a high number 
of bookings are Italy with six 
and England and Mexico

said. “Bat the 
■present I would really love 
most is the World Cop, of 
coarse.” 

He has scored only once in 
the competition, but that goal, 
against Uruguay, was one of 
the most spectacular efforts of 
the finals. Collecting the ball 
outside the area, he wriggled 
past several challenges and 
the goalkeeper before calmly 
tapping the ball into the net 
with his left foot 

His partnership with 
Preben Elkjaer is one of the 
most feared in the tournament. 
Like Elkjaer, Laudrup plays 
in Italy where he won the 
League title last season with 
Juventus. The Turin dnb woo 
a scramble for his signature 
when it became known that the 
youngster was ready to leave 
Denmark three years ago. 
Barcelona, Liverpool, Real 
Madrid, Ajax, Saint-Etienne 
and Bornssia 

Mtincbengladbach were 
among the other teams in 
pursuit. 

Laudrup listened to the 
advice of one of the elder 
statesmen of the Danish team, 
the former Barcelona player, 
Allan Simonsen, who told him 
that be would find Spanish 
football too rough. 

His father, Fmn, himself a 
former international who 
played for several years in 
Austria with Vienna SK, sug- 
gested that England, with its 
reliance on the high ball, 
might not be the right stage for 
his outstanding skills.

SPORT IN BRIEF 



Stretchers 

have 

magical 

powers 

Mexico City (Reuter) — 
There was a day when trainers 
used to rely heavily on the 
“magic" sponge to revive 
injured players. This World 
Cup has seen the arrival of a 
new and for more effective 
remedy — the stretcher.. 

Hugo Sanchez, Mexico's 
leading forward, was the first 
player to benefit from its new- 
found powers during his 
country's 2-0 defeat of Bulgar- 
ia in the second round. Mid- 
way through the second half 
Sanchez was left writhing on 
the ground clutching his knee, 
his World Cup ambitions 
apparently in tatters. 

Within seconds, however, 
an astonishing recovery had 
taken place. The process of 
being carried prostrate from 
the pitch and set down on the 
touchline seemingly blessed 
Sanchez with renewed life 
The resuscitating powers of 
the stretcher were given a 
further demonstration during 
Monday's game between Bra- 
zil and Poland. The first 
thought of Volker Roth, the 
West German referee, on see- 
ing Edinho rolling around on 
the pitch grasping his left 1% 
and with pain and agony 
written all over his face, was to 
call for the stretcher. 

On this occasion *just the 
sight of two Red Cross men 
was enough for the Brazilian 
captain and moments later he 
was running and competing 
for the ball 

These and other dramatic 
recoveries by players may 
reveal a penchant for histrion- 
ics following a hard tackle or 
foul. On the .other hand they 
may also be a sign of the 
willingness of the referee s, 
perhaps aware of how little 
injury time they are allowing 
during this World' Ctip. to 
keep games moving.

There is no player in the cj 
England team, nor probably 
for that matter in any team, 
capable of subduing him head- 
to-head- He overwhelmed Bar- 
rios, the Uruguayan captain, 
who is himself no average 
defensive midfield player. 
Maradona has not the range of 
gifts, in the tactical sense, 
possessed by former great 
forwards snch as Di Stefano, 
Pete and Cruyff, but with the 
ball at his feet there is mine 
certainty that be will go past a 
single defender, perhaps two 
and sometimes three, than at 
any time since Pete dominated 
the 1970 Mexico World Cup. 

What assisted Maradona's f 
display, in a second round 
match which Argentina might 
hare won by six goals instead 
of one, was the efficiency of the 
Italian referee, Agnolin. If 
football is conducted within 
the laws as they are written, 
then Maradona is at times 
almost unplayable. 

English dismissive 
of Pele 

It is a tendency in football 
as in other sports, © criticize 
the great disproportionately 
when they foiL In football this 
is often particularly unfair 
because even the most brilliant 
player is subject in part © the 
performance of his colleagues. 

There were hundreds of 
critics, and thoraands of spec- 
tators, who ia England in 1966 
were dismissive of Pete when 
Brazil foiled. He could not 
take the tackling, they said 
(when it had been criminal). 
He had not the right tempera- 
ment, they said. He was 
overrated. The real star, they 
said, was Ensebio. 

In 1978, Cesar Menotti 
shrewdly decided © exclude 
from his winning team the 18- 
year-old who was going to 
become a genius. Because be 
thought he was not ready. Ag 
year later I first sa«T 
Maradona in a charity replay 
against The Netherlands, and 
in that game he destroyed one 
of the most tenadoos, competi- 
tive players of that era, Johan 
Neeskens. For 90 minutes 
Neeskens was never more than 
two strides away from 
Maradona, yet could hardly 
lay a finger on him. It was a 
magical revelation. 

So unstoppable was 
Maradona's explosive talents, 
that within months of his 
international exposure ho was 
the most wanted and the most 
marked man in the game. He 
had the potential © make 
fortunes not only for himself 
bat for any dnb. Thee were 
those who intended to stop 
him. 

Almost literal 
slaughter 

They did. With Barcelona, 
Maradona was habitually 
s la lightered, metaphorically 
and occasionally almost liter- 
ally by opponents such as 
Goicoechea, without the 
slightest protection from 
Spanish referees. 

'Hie inevitable happened 
with someone of Latin emo- 
tion. Maradona became a 
diver, an actor of exaggerated 
gestures, in a vain effort to 
protect his precious skills. The , , 
effect was for the referees to * 
become even less sympathetic 
Maradona needed teaching a 
lesson, the attitude became 
and was picked op by some 
commentators. 

Maradona himself became 
moody and aggressive, but this 
was not the boy I had first 
seen. In the .1982 World Cop 
he suffered the ultimate degra- 
dation. Buffeted unmercifully 
by such as Gentile, by no less 
than three Belgian markers, 
his nerve finally broke. He 
committed an unforgivable 
fool against Brazil and was 
sent< 

While the laws — which? 
would have helped him — were 
ignored, h was said be needed 
to grow up. WeU, he has. Four 
years later, now Argentina's 
captain, and in spite of a knee 
reacting to 5,000 scything 
tackles, he is indeed more 
mature. Chopped repeatedly 
by the Koreans and Bulgari- 
ans, he suddenly found himself 
with a referee prepared ft/ 
defend him. 

The result was the depar- 
ture of Uruguay, carved apart 
by his astonishing accelera- 
tion, dot surging sidestep 

“I would like to play against 
England,” Maradona said af- 
terwards. “They play mot* 
open football.” I fear for them, 
for indeed (hey do. . \
