Sonth Africa: the uncensored story 

3,000 arrests 
in massive 
police swoops 


By Paul Vailely 

A picture of a nation in 
f 0, turmoil emerged from South 
Africa yesterday as the first 
uncensored reports filtering 
out of the country revealed 
wide- scale attacks on church 
services, police laying siege to 
a hospital and a seminary, 
about 3.000 arrests of both 
white and black opponents of 
the Government, a massive 
police and army presence on 
the streets, and the white 
population rushing in panic to 
gun-shops to arm their vigi- 
lante patrols. 

Necessarily, in a country 
where censorship is strictly 
enforced, many of the reports 
were individually unsubstan- 
tiaied. But in combination 
they told the same story of a 
security clampdown of un- 
precedented proportions. 

There is said to have been 
shooting throughout the night 
-and explosions in parts of the 
country, but these seem to 
have been sporadic. 

Direct information being 
passed to religious organiza- 
tions. aid agencies and pres- 
sure groups like Amnesty 
International paints a picture 
of arrests on an unprecedented 
scale in an attempt by the 
security forces to pre-empt 
* , widescale street violence.

arrived in London yesterday 
and said: ‘"There are still 
demonstrations happening; 
there is much shooting, car- 
bombs exploding all over the 
place. The outside world is 
getting virtually no real pic- 
ture of what is happening. 

“Many whites have taken to 
their homes, armed to protect 
themselves." 

On Monday, the anniversa- 
ry of the 1976 Soweto upris- 
ing, there was a run on gun- 
shops in Johannesburg, he 
said, with “whites buying 
rifles, shotguns: anything they 


could find," but this was not 
allowed to be reported. 

Separate intelligence from 
South Africa confirmed this, 
and there were reports that at 
one primary school 20 armed 
parents organized a patrol in 
the grounds during school 
hours. 

“The streets of Johannes- 
burg were virtually deserted, 
with people barricading them- 
selves in their homes." said 
Mr de Voss, who said he had 
film proving that the police 
are moving freely among 
black conservative vigilante 
groups and “even running 
with them". 

“I have a shot of a white 
policeman with a painted 
black face running from one 
house to another in the squat- 
ter camp, throwing petrol 
bombs." 

Soweto is effectively cut off, 
and few telephones are work- 
ing. There is an enormous 
police presence on the streets, 
with road-blocks which 
change location every three 
hours. 

One black eyewitness who 
lives in Soweto yesterday told 
The Times, speaking from 
outside the township, that the 
police presence was so repres- 
sive that communication 
within the township was 
impossible.

Sit-in strikes hit 
supermarkets 

From Michael Hornsby, Johannesburg 
Black workers staged sit- -sures- announced l 


down strikes in supermarkets 
in many parts of South Africa 
yesterday in what appeared to 
be a protest against the deten- 
tion of trade union leaders. 

The strikes affected the two 
main supermarket chains, 
Pick‘n Fay and Checkers. A 
strike was also reported to 
have affected milk deliveries 
in northern Johannesburg. 

It is not possible to report 
fully on the strikes under the 
emergency regulations in force 
since June 12, which among . 
other things prohibit “news or 
comment" about the actions 
of the police. Filming of 
strikes is forbidden. 

The people detained so far, 
according to unofficial esti- 
mates, under the emergency 
provisions are believed to 
include shop stewards of the 
Commercial, Catering and Al- 
lied Workers Union of South 
Africa, to which most super- 
market workers belong 

So far the authorities have 
refused to disclose the number 
or names of people detained. 
It is an offence to name 
detainees without official 
permission. 

Meanwhile, the South Afri- 
can rand recovered yesterday, 
to 42.5 US cents, an increase 
of 15 per cent on its level last 
week. This was seen as reflect- 
ing partly stimulatory mea- 


by the 
Government and relief in 
business circles that mass 
disturbances did not material- 
ize on June 16. 

In Pretoria, the Bureau for 
Information, which is now 
effectively the only legal 
source of information about 
unrest, said that three blades 
had died* in the previous 24 
hours. Two bad been killed by 
the police and one had been 
burnt to death by unknown 
assailants. 

According to the Bureau, 
one black man was killed 
when the police dispersed a 
mob which attacked a bus 
with petrol bombs in 
Soshanguve, in northern 
Transvaal. Another black man 
was allegedly killed in attack 
on a police vehide at 
Nelspruil, in eastern 
TransvaaL 

The Bureau belatedly con- 
firmed that two whites and 
187 Coloureds had been ar- 
rested while meeting in a 
church in Elsie's River, West- 
ern Cape, last weekend. 

Reports about a number of 
other incidents involving the 
police were put to the Bureau, 
which said it had no informa- 
tion about them. Journalists 
were told that it was illegal to 
report their own questions if 
the information in them had 
not been cleared. 


Gifts of 
shares 
in gas 
sell-off 

By David Yoons 
Energy Correspondent 


British Gas Corporation's 
90,000 workers, its 55,000 
pensioners and fts 13 mOtion 
domestic enstomers will be 
given preferential treatment 
when the corporation is priva- 
tized with a potential £5 billion 
price tag in November. 

The Government will also 
receive another £225 MlUon 
from British Gas in debt 
repayments once it is in the 
private sector, providing it 
with a total of almost £8 billion 
to finance its spending plan m 
the run-up to the next general 
election. 

Each British Gas employee 
wfl] be given £70 wort h of free 
shares and another £2 worth 
for every year of service. The 
corporation's pensioners will 
each receive £75 worth of free 
shares. 

In addition, every employee 
who buys shares will be given 
two shares by the Government 
for every one they buy up to a 
maximum of £150 worth. They 
will also be given priority in 
baying up to £2,000 worth of 
shares at a 10 per cent 
discount. 

The gift of shares to employ- 
ees will cost the Government 
np to £54 million. 

Consumers will also be giv- 
en preferential treatment 
They will be eocora-aged to bay 
shares by being given vouchers 
with shares bought entitling 
them to disconnts on their gas 
bills. 

Mr Peter Walker, Secretary 
of State for Energy, said 
yesterday: “The British Gas 
offer for sale will bring within 
reach of everyone the chance 
to share in tire fortunes of a 
major and successful 
enterprise. 

“The provisions mart: a 
farther step towards realizing 
an historic opportunity which 
will be good not only for gas 
consumers and all who wort in 
the industry, hot for the 
millions of members of the 
piddle who will.be aide to own 
shares." 

Mr JWalker also aunoenced 
yest&day font,’ muter tfcertggK 
latory price formula which wfll 
control British Gas, prices wffl 
be allowed to rise cadi year by 
2 per cent below the annual 
inflation rate. The inking 
formula announced % the' 
Government will be policed by 
the director-general of Ofgas, 
a statutory body to be set up to 
oversee consumers' interests. 

The privatization, the big- 
gest to date in the government 
programme, was initially ex- 
pected to produce about £10 
billion for the Government, 
bat since then estimates have 
been revised downwards with 
the most optimistic straesting 
a total income for the Govern- 
ment of around £9 million and 
the most pessimistic nearer £5 
billion. 

Unlike the sale of British 
Telecom, which was conducted 
in two stages, the British Gas 
flotation will be carried out m 
one issue.

New hopes of growth 


Industrial output in April 
was at its highest level for 
seven years, official figures 
published yesterday showed 
(Our Economics Correspon- 
dent writes). The sharp rise is 
in line with the Chancellor's 
prediction of a vigorous re- 
sumption in growth after the 
pause earlier in the year. 

Industrial output rose by 1. 1 
per cent in April, when manu- 
facturing output jumped by 


1.8 per cent. Officials warned 
that the latest figures could be 
erratically high, partly because 
of the timing of the Easier 
holiday. and that it was too 
early to say industry bad brok- 
en out of the doldrums. 

In the latest three months, 
industrial output rose by 1.3 
per cent, but manufacturing 
output was down by 0.2 per 
cent.

Church may split in two over women priests 


By Clifford Lonsley 
Religious Affairs 
Correspondent 

Proposals to divide the 
Church of England into two, 
one part with women priests 
and one withont, are to be 
debated by the General Synod 
early next month. 

■ While the “Church of En- 
gland A" wonld have an all- 
male dergy and be made np 
largely of traditional ists, the 
“Church of England B" would 
contain doctrinal liberals and 
a mixed dergy. At least one of 
the two would have to be 
disestablished. 

That is one of several ex- 
traordinary options which 
have been designed to protect 
the rights of dergy and church 
members who are opposed in 
conscience to female ordina- 
tion. 

It is expected to receive 
strong support from the most 


entrenched opponents of 
women’s ordination, ind tiding 
the Bishop of London, Dr 
Graham Leonard. 

The synod asked a commit- 
tee to prepare conscience 
clauses as a detail of die 
legislation for introducing 
women priests into the Angli- 
can ministry, but the result, 
one of the most remarkable 
documents in the Church of 
England's history, is likely to 
dominate the argument abont 
women priests from now on. 

The committee is recom- 
mending to the synod the least 
damaging of the options it 
considered, to allow areas of 
the chnrcb to opt out of having 
women priests. 

Even that would mean two 
sets of bishops and extensive 
“no-go" areas for women cler- 
gy. However one senior com- 
mittee member is proposing 
that they should make the 


division formal, with parallel 
official churches. 

Canon George Austin, who 
is a member of the synod's 
standing committee and a 
leading Anglo-Catholic 
churchman, said yesterday 
that the church he would 
belong to would be an affiance 
of doctrinal conservatives, 
high church and low. The 
other wonld probably be liber- 
al. 

The executive secretary of 
the Movement for the Ordina- 
tion of Women, Mrs Margaret 
Webster, called the report “a 
further attempt at scare 
tactics". 

The synod derided by 307 
rotes to 183 in 1984 in favour 
of the principle of women . 
priests. Opponents have beat 
conducting an intense cam- 
paign to persuade the church 
that the cost of women priests 
will be too high, and the 
Bishop of London has said 


repeatedly that the church 
wonld split in two on the issue. 

The report's si gntfjpaw* is 
that it is the first time that an 


should have the same right, by 
majority derision; 

• Clergy unable to remain m 
the church . should receive 


official body representing both “financial provision"— in ef- 
sides of the argument has feet, catnoensathm o 
taken np his and pnt 
flesh and bone£ on it 

The committee says in its 
report, published today, that it. 
is “our muted belief that every 
effort mast be made to pre- 
serve the peace and unity of 
the Clrarch of England". The 
rest of the report, however, 
reads like a commentary on 
how unlikely that is. 

Among its milder proposals, 
some tfwhkh are alternatives, 
are that 

• Bishops should be allowed 
to refuse to ordain women or 
license women priests in their 
diocese; 

• Clergy should be allowed to 
ban women priests from offici- 
ating in their parishes; 

• Church parish councils 


fed, compensation on leaving. 

The main issue raised by the 
report, however, concerns the 
relationship between a clergy- 
man who opposes women 
priests and a diocesan bishop 
who supports them. It sug- 
gests five posable solutions: 

• Each bishop- who ordainr! 
women should delegate his 
episcopal duties to one who did 
not It is that that the chair- 
man of the committee, Profes- 
sor - David M cOean, will 
propose to the synod. 

Bat the report adds; “There 
would thus come into being a 
separate line of episcopal suc- 
cession within the Church of 
England., in less than full 
comm on ton ■ with the Other 
bishops in the same church."

Fowler puts in bid 
for extra f 1.7bn 

By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 


The Secretary of State for 
Social Services, Mr Norman 
Fowler, has submitted a bid to 
the Prime Minister and the 
Treasury for about an extra 
£1.7 billion on bis planned 
health budget next year. 

He is understood to have 
aftkftffor the .-additional sum, 
which represents a 14,6 per 
cent . increase on present 
spending, in his campaign to 
restore confidence in foe 
health service, which, with 
education, is considered by 
Mrs Margaret Thatcher to be 
one of the biggest priorities in 
the approach to the next 
genera) election. 

The. main items in the extra 
bid are a drive to reduce 
hospital waiting lists and in- 
creased resources for the inner 
city hospitals. 

It means that the requests 
for extra spending above foe 
£143.9 billion planned for 
1987-88 are almost certain to 
have reached a figure of about 
£7 billion, leaving the Prime 
Minister and foe Treasury 
with their biggest battle to 
hold down public spending 
since 1979. 


The Secretary of State for 
Education and Science. Mr 
Kenneth Baker, has already 
increased to slightly above 
£1 billion the bids for extra 
spending on education that he 
inherited from Sir Keith 
Joseph. 

The Secretary of Sate for 
the Environment, Mr Nicho- 
las Ridley, is understood to 
have gone along with most of 
foe. bid left to him by his 
predecessor, Mr Baker, for an 
extra £3.2 billion on local 
authority spending and hous- 
ing and other capital spending 

He is thought to have 
pruned the bid back to about 
£3 billion by cutting the hous- 
ing component, which may 
yet cause trouble with Conser- 
vative MPs. Bui he had little 
choice but to accept foe £2 bil- 
lion planned for council 
spending which was required 
in any case to bring next year’s 
plans into line with what was 
being spent locally. 

Under a procedure intro- 
duced this year, foe spending 
ministers have had to account 
personally for their initial 
bids.

Police call for CS gas 
and plastic bullets to 
counter petrol bombers 


By Stewart Tendler 
Crime Reporter 


The police must have CS 
gas and plastic bullets avail- 
able for confrontations in 
which petrol bombs have 
become the weapon of first 
resort. Sir Lawrence Byford. 
Chief Inspector of Constabu- 
lary, said yesterday. 

Police assessments of the 
atmosphere in some inner 
cities showed that tension 
remained at a “worryingly 
high lever. Last year some 
forces reported that any police 
action in racially sensitive 
areas could routinely prompt 
a violent response. 

Sir Lawrence, commenting 
in his annual report for last 
year on public order prob- 
lems. said the level of violence 
inner-city disorder bad

risen sharply, attacks on police 
vehicles were not uncommon 
and in other areas extra par 
trols have had to be mounted 
on once- peaceful weekday 
evenings. 

Looking at events at 
Handsworth last summer 
when two people died. Sir 
Lawrence said; “The chain of 
events which developed ser- 
ved to confirm fears that the 
degree of violence to be ex- 
pected at such scenes has 
advanced significantly. 

“The petrol bomb is now 
accepted by many disorderly 
elements as a ‘legitimate' 
weapon of first resort in 
confrontations with the 
police." 

The police had to recognize 
that in certain circumstances

All forces now haw stocks 
of CS gas for public order 
purposes and criminal sieges. 

Fourteen forces have stocks 
of plastic bullets: Metropoli- 
tan. Avon and Somerset, Es- 
sex, Greater Manchester, 
Kent. Humberside, Lanca- 
shire, Leicestershire, 
Merseyside, North Wales, 
North Yorkshire, Sussex, 
Warwickshire, and West 
Midlands. 

Other forces have laced 
resistance by their police au- 
thorities to the purchase of the 
weapons. New rules lay down 
that if an authority refuses to

be necessary. Events at Tot- 
tenham. when Police Consta- 
ble Keith Blakelock was killed, 
showed that: “Rioters and 
police must be separated by 
the kind of cordon sanitaire 
which baton rounds in partic- 
ular provide." 

Evidence from other coun- 
tries showed that unless riot- 
ers were kept at a distance 
from the police the level of 
injuries for the police would 
rapidly become unacceptable. 

“With this in mind," the 
report said, “and due to the 
stark escalation of violence in 
this country, the traditional 
equipment used for quelling 
public disorder may not be 
enough. 


“Reluctantly, therefore, the 
weapons of last resort, such as 
baton rounds and CS gas. need 
to be available to the police if 
their use may be tne only 
means of dealing with major 
public disorder which serious- 
ly threatens life or property. 

In the past year the police 
service had improved its abili- 
ty to deal with public disorder. 

Hie report said, however 
“Whether the latest escalation 
in levels of violence is in some 
way attributable to the frustra- 
tion borne out of such police 
effectiveness is a matter for 
conjecture, but the harsh reali- 
ty appears to be that, far from 
being deterred by effective 
policing, the reaction to a wide 
variety of real or imagined 
grievances is one of escalating 
methods of protest." 

Sir Lawrence said that the 
“root feelings of alienation 
and disillusionment expressed 
by militant sections of inner- 
city communities are largely 
beyond the influence of the 
polic 

of the police 
prevent riots from taking 
place but will merely mitigate 
the most violent conse- 
quences". 

The riots last year had 
shown that it was police action 
that often provided the trigger. 

Sir Lawrence said: “The 
police must clearly be alive to 
the possible consequences of 
their actions in such areas, but 
the law must continue to be

£170m bill 
for DHSS 
dispute 


MPs criticize rise 
in house aid costs 


The 15-momh dispute at 
the Newcastle central office of 
the Department of Health and 
Social Security cost £170 mil- 
lion. the aJ 1-party Committee 
of Public Accounts reported 
yesterday. 

It welcomed the DHSS's 
derision to disperse its com- 
puter operations to other areas 
to prevent a repetition of the 
“disastrous” disruption, 
which has caused a heavy 
. backlog of benefit cases at 
local offices. 

The dispute arose because 
some computer staff objected 
to plans for new shiftworiring 
in an attempt to save £700,000 
a year. But the committee said 
that the DHSS “had a duty" to 
improve efficiency 

MPs hoped there would be 
no repetition of the dispute, 
wh ich incl uded an eigh t- 
month strike, and that every- 
thing practicable would be 
done to restore good industrial 
relations. Most of the dispute 
costs arose from extra Post 
Office charges, overtime pay- 
ments and staffing increases. 


By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 

The growing bureaucracy 
underpinning the £4 billion-a- 
year Housing Benefits Scheme 
was sharply criticized by an 
all-party group of MPs 
yesterday. 

A report from the Commit- 
tee of Public Accounts says it 
“disappointed” that in spite 


is 


of its previous strictures and 
the feet that the number of 
claimants has apparently 
peaked at around 7 25 mil- 
lion. the administrative costs 
of mnn ing the scheme are still 
rising. 

The number of staff em- 
ployed by local authorities to 
process claims for rent and 
rate rebates has more than 
doubled in the three years 
since the scheme's inception. 

They have risen from 4,550 
under previous arrangements 
to an estimated 9,720 this 
year, triggering a spending 
overshoot on the administra- 
tion budget of £30 million in 
1 983-84. The committee notes 
that the Social Security BUI 
before Parliament is aimed at 
tackling difficulties and sim- 


plifying administration. 

But it wants the Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security to step up its scrutiny 
of running costs. The report 
also uncovers wide differences 
among authorities in average 
costs of dealing with claims. 

In ly 83-84 they ranged 
from £13 to £79 within inner 
London, while the caseload 
per officer varied from 251 to 
870. Parallel figures in district 
councils were £5 to £26 and 
517to234. 

The MPs urge the DHSS to 
launch a joint investigation 
with the Audit Commission 
and the local authority associ- 
ations into the factors behind 
the figures. 

They also say that they are 
not convinced that new ar- 
rangements for making local 
authorities responsible for 
part of their administrative 
costs by limiting direct reim- 
bursement from the DHSS 
will provide a real and imme- 
diate incentive to control 
spending. 


Report on 
Stalker 
friend 
with DPP 


By Peter Davenport 

A police report on an inves- 
tigation into the businessman 
friend of Mr John Stalker, the 
senior police officer removed 
from an inquiry into the 
alleged shoot-to-kfll policy of 
the Royal Ulster Constabu- 
lary, is now with the Director 
of Poblic Prosecutions, it was 
disclosed yesterday. 

The file on Mr Kevin Tay- 
lor, a wealthy property devel- 
oper and formerly a leading 
Conservative in Manchester, 
is the result of an investigation 
by detectives which 
almost a year ago. 


Yesterday a spokesman for 
the DPP confirmed that the 
report had been received and, 
although he wonld not disclose 
its details; said that k was 
being handled by die fraud 
division. 

The outcome of die DPP’s 
consideration of possible ac- 
tion on the report may affect 
the progress of the inquiry into 
disciplinary allegations 
against Mr Stalker, the depu- 
ty chid* constable of Greater 
Manchester. 

The two men have 
friends since meeting at 
parents’ evening at the convent 
school attended by their 
daughters 17 years ago. 

Sources dose to the inquiry 
said yesterday that Mr Stalk- 
er bees complaints of “nowise 
associations with criminals in 


Manchester" althongh it was 
hat Mr 


emphasized that Mr Taylor 
has no criminal record. 

Yesterday lawyers acting for 
Mr Stalker, who has been on 
extended leave for the past 
three weeks after the allega- 
tions, said that he is to meet 
Mr Sampson again next week. 

They said they expected to 
be told at the meeting, likely 
on Monday or Tuesday, the 
exact details of specific 

H es or that Mr Stalker 
be alkmed to return to 
his desk. 

There is a possibility of 
legal actum by Mr Stalker to 
secare his right to work if 
there is no positive outcome to 
the meeting. 

Yesterday Mr Roland 
Boyle, the deputy chairman of 
the Police Complaints Author- 
ity who is snpervising the 
inquiry into Mr Stalker, said 
that it could be at least two 
weeks before the preliminary 


investigations are complete. 

If they find there is a case 
for him to answer it could be a 
further six weeks before the 
inquiry report is presented to 
the authority and the Greater 
Manchester Police Authority. 

Friends and colleagues of 
Mr Stalker remain convinced 
that he is the victim of a 
deliberate smear campaign to 
force his removal from the 
sensitive Northern Ireland in- 
quiry. 

Earlier tins week the BBC 
programme Panorama riaimed 
be was removed only days 
before be was doe to fly to 
Belfast to receive evidence of 
MIS involvement in one of the 
killings that was the subject of 
his investigation. 


Shipbuilding cuts may 
put 15,000 out of work 


By Sheila Gunn. Political Staff 


Up to 1 5,000 workers could 
be put out of work because of 
cutbacks by British Shipbuild- 
ers, Mr Philip Hares, the 
company’s chairman and 
chief executive, said 
yesterday. 

He said that in addition to 
the 3.500 redundancies at 
Middlesbrough. Troon and 
Wallsend shipyards by March 
next year, many companies 
dependent on orders from BS 
would be forced to lay off 
workers. 

The Government’s an- 
nouncement of BS's redun- 
dancies last month caused a 
political storm. Mr Paul 
Channon, Secretary of State 
for Trade and Industry, prom- 
ised £10 million to help job 
creation and retraining in the 
North-east and other affected 
areas. 

On average each redundan- 
cy at BS will cost £1 1.000. but 


company officials said they 
hoped many of the workforce 
would be able to get other 
jobs. 

Mr Hares told the Com- 
mons trade and industry select 
committee yesterday that he 
did not expect any improve- 
ment in the shipbuilding mar- 
ket before 1990-91 but spoke 
against further cutbacks 
which, he said, would make 
shipbuilding in Britain “a very 
small industry". 

He said he was reasonably 
optimistic that BS could at- 
tract enough orders this year; 
• Most of the workers at 
Dev on port dockyard have 
signed a “no strike" agree- 
ment in an attempt to secure 
the contract to refit the Royal 
Yacht Britannia. 

Most of the yard’s 12,500 
staff have agreed to take no 
action that would affect work 
on the yacht 


Kent company 
highlights the 
jobless gulf 



A company’s attempt to fill 
12 jobs has spotlighted the 
employment golf between the 
north and south of England. 

When the J J Group of 
Maidstone, Kent, advertised 
in local newspapers for MOT 
testers, engineers, van drivers 
and exhaust fitters it received 
just two applications. 

But after stories about the 
problem appeared in newspa- 
pers in the North-east more 
than 1,000 inquiries poured in 
from the region, which has one 
of the highest unemployment 
rates in Britain. 

The company is speeding 
the next three days in the 
North-east interviewing 100 of 
the applicants, whose desire 
for work has meant they have 
not been deterred by the 
prospect of greater bouse 
prices 

Mr Peter Rabbatts, one the 
company's directors, said the 
response had made his compa- 
ny realize the extent of unem- 
ployment in the North-east, 
where one in five is out of 
work. 


Willis plea

Portrait for the Prince 


Andrew Ratdiffe, a little- 
known Lanacashire painter, 
was given the chance of a 
lifetime when the Prince of 
Wales agreed to sit fin’ him. 

The Prince was so delighted 
with the result he promptly 
bought die painting. 

The portrait, showing the 
Prince of Wales gazing out of a 
window at Kensington Palace, 
went on show yesterday at the 
National Portrait Gallery' in 
London. 

-“I -contacted the Prince 
some years ago. We corre- 
sponded about painting and 
portraiture and I sent some 
samples ~ of my work." Mr 
Ratdiffe, aged 38, was snbse- 


qnently invited to do some 
roagb sketches. 

“I got in touch with the 
Prince again about a year and 
a half ago," he said. The 
Prince agreed tn sit for the 
portrait, which was completed 
last anttunn. 

He said both the Prince and 
Princess of Wales seemed to 
like the picture. “I hope he 
feds be got a bargain." 

Mr Ratdiffe, who has his 
studio in Manchester, de- 
scribed the Prince as “a very 
easy sitter". 

The portrait will hang at the 
National Portrait Gallery until 
September on loan from the 
Prince.

Peace overtures by the Scot- 
tish miners to reunite workers 
in the industry were snubbed 
yesterday by the Union of 
Democratic Mineworkers. 

Mr Ken Toon, president of 
the breakaway union, told the 
final day of its conference at 
Buxton that if the National 
Union of Miners wanted unity 
the best way for members to 
achieve it wiil.be for them to 
join their union. 

“We will not be united 
under the present NUM 
leadership," be said. 

At the annual conference of 
the Scottish NUM iii Penh, 
Mr Michael McGahey. who 
retires in July next year as 
union president, appealed to 
UDM members to return to 
the main union. 

They must reunite as quick- 
ly as possible, he said, to avoid 
a disastrous long-term split 
which all the miners’ enemies 
were determined to maintain. 

In a radio interview yester- 
day. Mr McGahey said that 
although he believed it had 
been wrong for the UDM to 
break away he could -not 
regard its members as 
“untouchables". • 


But from Buxton, Mr Toon 
made it clear that the UDM 
intended to maintain an inde- 
pendent stand in its dealings 
with British CoaL 

The conference agreed to 
press for a two-year wage deal 
at least 1 per cent above the 
average inflation rate. 

The UDM won a 5.9 per 
cent increase last November 
and the NUM has yet to begin 
negotiations. 

Mr Toon expected an early 
meeting with British Coal to 
work out a new deal which 
would start immediately. 


Benefit changes 


Big rise ‘B & B 9 claimants 


Minor concessions for the 
unemployed living in bed and 
breakfast accommodation on 
social security, and bigger 
ones for elderly and handi- 
capped people living in resi- 
dential and nursing homes 
were announced yesterday by 
the Minister for Social Securi- 
ty, Mr Antony Newton. 

The announcement came as 
new figures show there has 
been an explosion in the 
number of people living in bed 
and breakfast accommoda- 
tion. There are many more 
than the Government knew of 
when it introduced lower lim- 
its last year on the amounts 
that would be paid, with rules 
malting many unemployed 
people aged under 26 move on 
every two to eight weeks.

twice the limit -for a angle 
person. 

m £2/7 million in Those aged 
1983 to more than £500 mil- 
lion in 1984, Mr Newton 
disclosed. 


Spending on board and 
lodging for the unemployed 
rose from £277 million 


Mr Newton said govern- 
ment- surveys showed that'the 
increase was due to the levels 
of benefit that were being 
paid, not to normal commer- 
cial factors, and that many 
landlords had reduced charges : 
since the new lower limits 
came in last year. 


As a result, no increase is to 
be paid in July when other 
social security benefits go up. 

But couples without chil- 
dren who were being paid only 
one-and-three-quarters the 
adult rate will in future receive 


under 26 al- 
ready in accommodation will 
not have to move every two, 
four or eight weeks, depending 
which area they are in. But 
from July 28 new-cJaimants 
will again be subject u> the 
lime limits unless they are in 
one of the exempt categories. 

The decision to reimpose 
the ^ time limits brought 
-warnings from bousing aid 
agencies and other pressure 
groups that their rcintroduo- 
tion win produce fresh hard- 
ship among the young un- 
employed. 

Payments for old people in 
residential care homes, how- 
ever, are to rise by £5 to £ 1 25 
week.

Students’ 
£120m In 
benefits 


The struggle to 
make ends meet 


Twenty years ago practical- 
ly no student claimed social 
security benefits. Today 

235.000 or almost half the 

500.000 full-time students 
draw housing benefit in term- 
time or the short vacations 
and 180,000 at any one time 
receive supplementary or un- 
employment benefit during 
the long vacation. 

The rail in the real value of 
student mams, down since 
1979 by 20 percent plus steep 
increases in parental contribu- 
tions which are not always 
paid, has helped . to push 
students towards the social 
security system. 

Today students claim about 
£120 million in social security 
benefits, a figure the 
Government's original pro- 
would have cut by 
between £40 million-£45 
million. 

The amounts students re- 
ceive vary from £2 a week for 
those able to claim supple- 
mentary benefit in the short 
vacations up to £29.50 a week 
the long vacations. Help 


m 


with rent and rates can be on 
top. 

Benefit is claimed by more 
than 100,000 students in the 
short vacations at a cost of 
about £4 million. In the long 
vacation 300,000 claims are 
handled with an average of 

180.000 students receiving 
benefit at any one time at a 
cost of about £65 million. 

Of the estimated 250,000 
students living in privately- 
rented accommodation. 

1 50.000 claim housing benefit 
in terra and short vacations at 

cost of £40 million, and 

50.000 claim in the long 
vacation at a cost of more than 
£10 million. 

About half the 1 70,000 stu- 
dents in halls of residence 
claim housing benefit in term- 
time at a cost of £5 million.

Carol Jndge is a 25-year-oH Politics 
mature student of politics and 
modern history at the Univer- 
' shy of Manchester and had 
every reason to be apprehen- 
sive before' yesterday's 
announcements. 

In spite of being on a foil 
grant, she works twee tones a 
week as an usherette at 
Manchester's Palace Theatre 
to make ends meet. Her 
mother is a widowed hospital 
cleaner and Is unable to con- 
tribute very much. 

The summer job is no option 
for her this summer as the 
lOJXXMrozd: handle, of the 
compulsory dissertation ap- 
proaches. “I need to be here 
throughout the summer to be 
dose to my. academic sources. 

“If benefit had been' ended 
during the long vaction, I 
would have finished np with an 
overdraft of over £1,000 at the 
end of my third year," she 
said. 

Carolyn ShflKto, another 
Manchester student, pointed 
oat that when students re- 
ceived the inevitable stern 
letters from bank managers, 
the summer job was by no 
means the obvious remedy. 

“Course requirements such 
as geography field trips often 
disqualify students from 
acccepting temporary work*" 
she said. 

Wendy Lohatto, a second- 
year student of Philosophy, 


at 


is 


and Economics 
Lincoln College, Oxford, 
more fortunate. Her father is a 
financial director of a publish- 
ing company and wife his wife 
pays the frill parental - contri- 
bution. 

“It’s not that I'm extrava- 
gant with money", die said, 
“bat I do know in the batik of 
my mind that there’s always 
Dad tohelpme, and I do spend 
more than the £1,800 grant 
figure, in a typical year." 

Throwing bra* own good 
fortune into sharper perspec- 
tive. was the memory of 
friend of hers who was forced 
into taking two part-time jobs 
to- keep her head, above water 
financially. 

The average cost of private- 
ly rented accommodation In 
Oxford is about £28, the 
highest figure outside London. 

Apart from the decline in 
value of the student grant in 
real terms over the past six 
years, cash flow Is another 
problem. 

A student of classics at 
Braseoose College, Oxford, 
pointed oat that although he 
lodged his claim for housing 
benefit last summer,- the 
cheque for more than £200 did 
not arrive until shortly before 
Christmas. His father, a York- 
shire miner, had been on 
strike, so there was no ques- 
tion ' of returning with the 
begging bowL 


Estimates ~of how much 
students would lose from the 
Government's original pro- 
posals vary from £200 or so in 
some cases to several hundred 
pounds more for some Lon- 
don students. 

Aside from • the 
Government's long-term aim 
of removing students from the 
benefit system; a key reason 


for ceasing to pay certain 
benefits was the administra- 
tive cost. 

Mr Tony Newton, Minister, 
for Social . Security, said that 
£500.000 paid out in supple- 
mentary benefit in the snort 
vacations costs £1 million to 
administer, with £3 million tn 


iptoymerit benefit costing 
anbtber £1 million to pay out.

Pupils ‘must be taught restraint in sexual relationships’ 


Young people should be 
taught the importance of re- 
straint and respect for them- 
selves mid others In personal 
and sexual relationships, the 
Minister at Stale for Educa- 
tion And Science. Mr Christo- 
pher Patten, said yesterday. 

Defending the Govern- 
ment’s plan to strengthen 
regard for “moral consider- 
ations and the value of family 


life" in sex education, Mr 
Patten said education could 
not be “morally neutral”. 

He also told a conference of 
Anglican diocesan directors of 
education in Croydon, sooth 
London, that political educa- 
tion in schools should not be 
neutral, but should promote 
“the fundamental political val- 
ues that sustain oar society." 

He said he believed that 


almost everyone would accept 
that sex education had to be 
offered within a moral 
framework. 

“I am sure that none of ns 
wonld consider it adequate or 
acceptable for schools simply 
to teach pupils in crude terras 
‘who does what ami how*, 
and — as an afterthought per- 
haps— how to avoid the 
inconvenience' of an unwant- 


ed or unintended pregnancy. 

“Teaching about the physi- 
cal aspects of $exaal behaviour 
should not be separated from 
helping youngsters to appreci- 
ate the implications of their 
actions." The minister ac- 
knowledged that the Gov- 
ernments moves — an am- 
endment to the Education Bill 
and new draft guidelines for 
schools on sex education — 


co aid not offer an instant 
remedy to Social ills such as 
marital breakdown and vio- 
lence and child abuse. 

“I do believe, however, that 
appropriate and responsible 
sex education can. in the 
longer term, play ah important 
part in helping to create a 
social dinate within which, 
soch occurrences are for less 
likley to -happen," he SihL;

lively high for drug offences 
(19 per cent), and robbery (18 
ptff cent). But h is low for 
criminal damage (3 per cent) 
and burglary (4 per cent).. 

That partly explains varia- 
tions in sentence: those range 
front an average for sexual 
offences of 40 mo nths for the 
West Indian/African blacks to 
25 months for whiles. 

Again, among drug of- 
fences. sentences vary on av- 
erage, from about 27 months 
for whites, through 23.5 
months for West Indian/Af- 
ricans to five years for those 
from the Indian subcontinent. 

One explanation, the Home 
Office says, is that the drug 
offences among West Indians 
are most likely to be those

involving .cannabis, while 
those involving prisoners of 
Indian origin, are likely to 
involve cocaine. 

But in general, the survey 
shows that prisoners of Indian 
subcontinent origin are not 
over represented compared 
with the general population, 
comprising about 2 per cent in 
prisons compared with 3 per 
cent in the generaipopulation. 

Among other offences, there 
was also a longer average 
sentence for West 
Indian/Africans aged 21 or 
over of 1 5.5 months compared 
.with 8.5 months for whites. 
But the survey points out that 
98 per cent of whites were 
sentenced for motoring of- 
fences compared with only 60 
per cent of the West 
Indian/African group. 

Yesterday the Home Office 
said the figures were not 
conclusive as to whether there 
was discrimination by courts 
and.the probation service. But 
they raised questions. 

Officials welcomed the sta-. 
tistics as providing the “first 
firm base line of information" 
against which to direct train- 
ing and management of the 
prison service. That was im- 
portant where discrimination 
was perceived to exist. 



Bar rejects solicitors’ plan 

By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 
Bar leaders will call today ence; and direct access by Solicitors would also make 


ants 


-Xrhtsrs. 

^libridf 


for the “outright rejection" of 
: proposals from solicitors to 
abolish the restrictive prac- 
tices dividing the two 
branches of the legal prof- 
ession. 

In their first full response to 
the controversial discussion 
paper. Lawyers and the 
, Courts, issued by a Law 
Society committee earSer this 
year, the Bar leaders say that 
its proposals could mean there 
_ would “soon be no Bar”. 

They attack the proposals as 
“ill thought out”, contrary to 
the public interest and liable 
to create new restrictive prac- 
tices. 

The proposals envisage a 
common education and train- 


clients to advocates. 

- They also envisage s much- 
reduced Bar of specialist advo- 
cates, perhaps half its size. 

In a response published in 
the Law Society Gazette to- 
day, Mr Robert Alexander, 
QC, the Bar chairman, and 
Lord Rawlinson of Ewell, QC 
president of the Senate of the 
Inns of Court, say that any 
objective reading of the pro- 
posal ought to lead to their 
outright rejection. 

They would . not allow law- 
yers to become barristers until 
they are in their late twenties, 
the response says. 

At that stage; with financial 
and family commitments, few 
would in practice choose to

Jurors: 


Crown courts in the north- 
east of England are die most 
efficient in the country because 
northerners are more wHfing 
to plead guilty, it was claimed 
yesterday. 

A study of the North- 
Eastern Circuit, which covers 
courts from Doncaster to the 
Scottish border, was carried 
out recently by the Lord 
C hancell or's Department. 

It shows that last year the 
circuit handled more cases 
with fewer resowces than any. 
other area. 

The prime reason for its 
success is the large proportion 
of guilty pleas, according to 
the circuit's administrator, Mr 
Michael Hnebner. 


There was- ho clear reason 
for the large number of gultty 
ideas, although it was often 
attributed to The robustness” 
of northern judges and lawyers 
and “a good douop of northern 
common sense” on the part of 
defendants, he said. 

The dradfs workload has 
almost donMed in the past six 
years from 8,662 cases com- 
mitted for trial in 1979 to 
15,095 last year. 

Cases In which defendants 
are in custody take an average 
of nine weeks to come to court 
in the North-east compared 
with a national average wait of 
10.1 weeks. 


every effort to secure the 
continuing services of their 
trainees. 

. Although the Law Society 
paper “obliquely recognizes” 
that by suggesting the possible 
need for a fond to. help those 
in early years at the Bar, no 
detaUs are given and no 
explanation as to why the 
profession should consider 
that a sensible imposition, it 
says. 

“The practical consequence 
would be that there would 
soon be no Bar, whether 
specialist or providing run-of- 
the-mill advocacy. The pro- 
posals would therefore fell to 
achieve what is said to be its 
objective.'" 

Solicitors would be forced 
to turn to other firms for the 
services they ; cannot provide 
and which they used to obtain 
from the Bar, it saysL 
, Other criticisms are that the 
criteria for quahfication as a 
barrister are unspecified; and 
that the proposals are contrary 
to the view of the Royal 
Commission on Legal Ser- 
vices that there should be no 
extension of the rights of 
audience of solicitors gen- 
erally. 

In a foreword, Mr Alexan- 
der says that “we have no wish 
to be in dispute with 
solicitors”. But he urges solici- 
tors not to “seek to weaken, or 
dimmish, the Bar” and in- 
stead to address “vital issues” 

The present division be- 
tween the profession, be says, 
was not in the interests of 
lawyers, but in the public 
interest.

Landlord 
denies 
knowing of 
arms store 

A Scotsman told the Central 
Criminal Court yesienday that 
he had “no idea” his lodgers 
were an IRA active service 
unit plotting to explode 
bombs across Britain. 

Mr John Boyle, aged 26, 
who let a room at James Gray 
Street, Glasgow, to Patrick 
Magee and three others in an 
IRA cell said: “I had no 
suspicions they were anything 
to do with the IRA.” 

In cross-examination by Mr 
Roy Arolot, for the pr 9 secu- 
tion. Mr Boyle said he did not 
suspect Magee, aged 35, Ge- 
i raid McDonnell, aged 34, 

1 Martina Anderson, aged 23, 
and Ella O'Dwyer, aged 26, 
during the three months they 
occupied the room. 

“Are you saying that some- 
how they got guns and almost 
1 40 pounds of explosives, into 
that room without you 
knowing?” Mr Am lot asked. 

Mr Boyle replied: “I was 
seldom at James Gray Street.” 

Mr Boyle has admitted 
hiding bomb-making equip- 
ment and arms in the cellar at 
James Gray Street after the 
IRA team was arrested. 

But he denies procuring, 
counselling, aiding, abetting 
or being an accessory to the 
commission of crime by 
Magee and the others. 

He also denies possessing or 
controlling explosive sub- 
stances with intent to endan- 
ger life and denies being an 
accessory by secreting materi- 
als for causing explosions in 
his cellar. 

Mr Boyle said he did not 
look at the materials when be 
spent half an hour transferring 
them to the cellar. 

Mr Aralot: “You held out at 
the police station for three 
days and you did not tell them 
what you had done with the 
materials you found” 


| Cyclists 
benefit in 
new road 
code 

By Nicholas Beeston 

Cyclists, pedestrians and 
motor-cyclists are expected to 
benefit from proposed revi- 
sions to the Highway Code put 
before Parliament yesterday. 

Mr Peter Bottomley, a ju- 
nior minister at the Depart- 
ment of Transport, said in a 
Commons written reply that 
the first big changes in eight 
years would benefit cyclists 
and the move acknowledged 
the contribution that cycling 
organizations made to his 
department 

There will be added refer- 
ences to two-wheel travellers 
which include advice to mo- 
torists on overtaking, crossing 
bus and cycle lanes and turn- 
ing at junctions. 

Other proposed changes in- 
clude advice to motorists not 
to use hand-held car tele- 
phones or microphones when 
they are driving and increased 
warnings about the dangers of 
drunken driving. 

■ Other topics covered are 
measures to prevent car theft, 
protective clothing for motor- 
cyclists and detailed advice on 
child safety in cars. 

The Department of Trans- 
port predicted that the revised 
code would be in use by mid- 
autumn. 

Record losses 
mean rise in 
motor cover 

Substantial increases in mo- 
tor insurance were forecast by 
Mr Brian Corby, chairman of 
the Association of British 
Insurers, after record under- 
writing losses were revealed 
yesterday for 1985.

Mr Boyle: “I look it for losses on the motor account 


granted they would find it." 
The trial continues today.

L destroy dogs 

The home for dogs and cats 
in Battersea, south London, 
• took in more than 20,500 dogs 
last year and overcrowding in 
the kennels forced it to destroy 
almost 9.000 animals. 

In its 125th annual report, 
the home said that more 
people were dumping their 
pets, so sentencing them to 
death. 

“Nothing much seems to 
have changed since the home 
was formed 125 years ago”. 
Mr Thomas Field-Fisher, the 
chairman, said. 

- The problem then, he said, 
was paying foe licence fee. 
Nowadays, when that was no 
longer a problem, it was 
simply heart! essness. Over- 
crowding at foe home is 
exacerbated because fewer 
people reclaim theirpets. Less 
than 14 per cent of dogs taken 
into foe home last year were 
returned to their owners. 

Colonel Henry Sweeney, the 
home's director general, said: 
“It is depressing seeing the 
figure of claims dropping, 
underlining our contention 
that the large majority of dogs 
are not lost or strays but dogs 
turned out by their owners as 
not wanted. 

“It's a telling commentary 
on our society” 

He added, however “Indi- 
cations we have so for seem to 
suggest foe number of dogs 
rehomed will go up and the 
numbers destroyed will go 
down.” 

The number of cats received 
by Battersea fell slightly from 
6$1 to 618 last year.

rape ar a vicarage in Ealing;

Taki Theodoracopulos, a 
society columnist, was “at best 
a Walter Mitty figure living 
out bis fantasies or at worst a 
pathological liar”, a QC told a 
High Court libel jury yes- 
terday. 

“After so many years of 
making malicious and un- 
founded attacks on people; he 
now cannot tell right from 
wrong or feet from fioion.” 

Mr Theodoracopulos had 
used his “High Life” column 
in The Spectator magazine to 
get his own back on Mrs 
Rosemarie Married-Riviere, a 
wealthy woman, for throwing 
him out ofberlunch party, her 
counsel, Mr Richard Hartley, 
QC said.

a series in which the Govern-

Jor housing last-year came 


from other countryside, in- 
cluding woodland and paries. 
Almost a quarter was vacant 
urban fend and a fifth had 
been used previously for hous- 
ing or industry. 

Lord Ellon said that new 
government pfenning powers, 
replacing some held by foe 
defunct Greater London 
Council, would operate with- 


out public consultation. Lon- 
doners would be able to 
comment before draft govern- 
ment guidelines were made 
final next year. 

He claimed it was “perfectly 
proper” for foe Government 
to apply new powers without 
consulting local people when 
they were used. “This country 
has been held up by bureau- 
cratic procedures for so long.”

£565 million to £732 million 
while net premium income 
rose only marginally. Overall 
underwri li ng losses worldwide 
were 16.1 per cent with foe 
UK showing foe worst perfor- 
mance producing a loss of 
more than 17 per cent on

According to foe association 
estimates, premiums for mo- 
tor cover are increasing at foe 
rate of about 20 per cent a 
year. 

Earlier this month both

ROFs remain 
open - Younger 


Future of ordnance factories • S upport for students 

Full review of student support KHn 


PRIVATIZATION 

w The Government is still looking 
-at all the possible options for 
privatization of the Royal Ord- 
nance Factories and it was 
rubbish to suggest that the 
Government's policy had cost 
- any member of ROF staff their 
job. Mr George Younger. Sec- 
retary of State for Defence, said 
■in the Commsons. 

He answered an Opposition 
private notice question about 
the postponement of privatiza- 
tion of the fectories. announced 
on Tuesday by him in a written 
reply. 

Mr Younger said that it re- 
mained the Government's 
intention to privatize the fac- 
’tories although it had not been 
'possible to to take the progress 
-towards commercial operation 
'far enough for flotation this 
-summer. 

Mr Denzil Davies, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on defence 
and disarmament said that for 
three years the Opposition had 
argued that Government plans 
to sell off the factories was 
nonsense and damaging to the 
factories, employees, and the 
national defence interest 

The Government has not 
listened (he said). Immured in 
its ideological tomb, it has had 
no lime for rational or reason- 
able argument 

When the Government 
started, the factories were val- 
ued at £400 million but the 
capital value has been reduced 
to about £150 million on an 
optimistic view in the City a few 
weeks ago. 

What is to happen now? Will 
he give an undertaking that 
before the next election, the 
factories will not be further 
dismembered but that he will 
return them to the status of a 
trading fund in which the Gov- 
ernment found them? 

What will happen to employ- 
ees who lose jobs as part of what 
is euphemistically described as 
privatization? Will the Govern- 
ment learn the lesson and drop 
its damaging plans to privatize 
the Royal Dockyards? 

Mr Younger; I have not heard 
such a good example of making 
bricks out of straw for a long 
time. 1 do not intend to join him 
in his ideological tomb. 

The Government objective 
remains for the ROFs to be 
privatized for the original rea- 
sons. To have a more successful 
future they have to rely on 
export as well as home orders, 
and they have a much better 
chance to get them if they are in 
the private sector. For that 
reason, privatization must re- 
main the objective. 

The Government has no 
intention of going back to the 
trading fond solution. 

■ The situation of employees 
has nothing to do with the 


Dr Keith Hampson (Leeds 
North West, CY Basically the 
judgement of the ROFs. apart 
from the problem of the Chal- 
lenger tank order, was that they 
were ready to go. 

Mr Younger I do not say and 
have not said that it would be 
impossible but it would be 
important to justify this as the 
best moment to go and we 
consider it is not so. 

Mrs Anna McCnrley (Renfrew 
West and Inverclyde. C): On be 
give an assurance that when the 
time comes for privatization, 
the ROFs will- not be sold 
piecemeal? 

Mr Younger It remains our 
objective to achieve privatiza- 
tion. I cannot give an undertak- 
ing on the way it will be done 
because we are still reviewing all 
the possible options for 
privatization from now on. 

Mr Jack Straw (Blackburn. 
Lab): The employees of ROFs 
have paid for the privatization 
policy with their jobs, 
conservative MPs: That is not 
true. 

Mr Straw: Of course it is. They 
know it. The minister should 
come clean and have the guts to 
admit that one of the policies be 
has looked at is selling off 
different bits piecemeaL 
Mr Younger: He does not 
normally talk rubbish, but it is 
rubbish 'to say that any member 
of staff has paid for this policy 
with his job. 

Mr John Cartwright (Wool- 
wich, SDP): Government anxi- 
ety to sell off should not in any 
wav hamper the supply of 
much-needed equipment for the 


MAINTENANCE 

The Governments to carey out a 
comprehensive review of all 
aspects of financial support for 
students in Great Britain study- 
ing at first degree or equivalent 
level. 

. Announcing this in a Com- 
mons ' statement. Mr Kenneth 
Baker. Secretary of State for 
Education and Science, said the 
Government wanted to ensure 
that students would neither be 
deterred from entering higher 
education nor hand i cap ped in 
their studies by lack of means. 

He said the measures being 
announced by Mr Norman 
Fowler, Secretary of State for 
Soda] Services, marked a return 
towards -a system In which 
support for students would be 
provided through the single 
channel of the educational 
maintenance system. 

It was a limited step taken -in 
dose consultation with his 
department. He was, however, 
convinced from the many 
representations he had received, - 
that it would be very difficult to

other actual and potential 

sources of rapport, mdtntmg

The study would be carried 
out under the chairmanship of 
Mr George Walden, Under Sec- 
retary of State for Education and 
Science. The Go ve r nm ent would 
be open to representations and 
advice from eve ry source. It 
would undertake extensive 
consultations and consider inter- 
national comparisons. The out- 
come of the review itself would 
be in the form of published 
proposals for public (Gscassfam

Mr Robert Rhodes James (Cam-

assurance that Government ef- 
forts to get out of the present 
mess will not delay orders for

Mr Younger said there, was no 
reason to make a change in the 
-supply of that and .he agreed 
about its impdrtance. 

Mr Denis Healey, chief Oppo- 
sition spokesman on foreign and 
. Commonwealth affairs: Will he 
confirm it was his intention last 
week to announce that the 
Challenger order would be given 
to the Leeds factory on 
Saturday. 

He has been dislodged from 
that decision by the interven- 
tion of a private firm which is a 
well known supporter of the 
Conservative Party- 
Ail his plans are falling .to 
pieces because be is not able to 
give that order to the Leeds 
factory which has a long history 
of being the best provider of 
battle tanks to this country and 
the-worid. 

Mr Younger: I had no intention 
of announcing the Challenger 
order on Saturday. 


HOUSING 

Changes in the Government’s 
proposals, published in January, 
for channelling support more 
through the educational mainte- 
nance system rather than the 
social security system, were 
announced by Mr Norman 
Fowler, Secretary. of State for 
Social Services, in a Commons 
statement. The revised 
prosposals represented, he 
claimed, sensible steps towards 
rationalising provision for stu- 
dents and reducing their depen- 
dence on benefits. 

However. Mr Michael 
Meacher. chief Opposition 
spokesman on social services, 
maintained the proposals would 
cause severe hardship for up to 

250.000 students caught in the 
crossfire between the Depart- 
ment of Health and Social 
Security and the Department of 
Education and Science. The 
mere promise of a review of 
grams was an insufficient 
substitute. 

Mr Fowls- said he was publish- 
ing the report of the Social 
Security Advisory' Committee 
on the original proposals and 
the Government's response. He 
wasalSO laying amended regula- 
tions to take account of' the 
views of the committee and 
those of the local authority 
associations and. others. , .. 

It remained.' the; 


but at foe same time three main 
concerns were expressed. 

On the first, the Government 
was prepa red to withdraw the 
proposed change to housing 
benefit whereby the accom- 
modation element in the grant 
would be taken fully info ac- 
count when assessing housing 
benefit entitlement. There was 
concern that this would cause a 
wide range of losses. 

Second, there was concern 
that under the proposed with- 
drawal of housing benefit for 
accommodation left unoccupied 
in the summer vacation, some 
students would not have time to 
change existing plans and 
commitments. 

We recognize their concern 
(he went on) and therefore this 
measure will not take effect until 
the summer of 1 987 as we accept 
that students who have already 
entered into rent commitments 
for this summer could face 
difficulties. 

Third, there was concern 
about the position of students 
without an award who had 
begun their studies on the 
assumption that they would 
continue to draw benefit ai the 
current leveL 

We accept (he said) that we 
should protect the most vulner- 
able of-.foese: existing students 
living away from their parents' 
homes. These students will be 
treated as now for bousing 
benefit in respect of private 
rented accommodation in term 


be dealt with by Mr Kenneth 
Baker. Secretary of State for 
Education and Science, in his 
statement to the House. 

The Government would dis- 
regard for housing benefit those 
parts of the grant which covered 
books and travelling expenses. 
This change would now take 
effect for the academic year 
1987-88. 






Government’s view that in the time-and the rimin' vacations, up 
long term it could not be to April 1 1988 or when their 


sensible that students should be 
subject to two separate but 
intertwined systems of support. 

It cannot be satisfactory (he 
said) to have students perma- 
nently dependent upon a system 
which is primarily designed for 
those who for various reasons 
cannot work, rather than for 
those who have withdrawn vol- 
untarily from the labour market 
to study. 

The vast majority of com- 
ments' to the advisory; commit- 
tee supported the principle of 
rationalising student support. 


present course ends. 

The remainder of the 
Government's proposals were 
largely unchanged. The proposal 
to make a £36 additional in- 
crease in the grant still stood and 
was an .important step in the 
tong-term aim of shifting stu- 
dent support away from the 
social security system. 

Nevertheless, the Govern- 
ment recognized that there were 
important issues to be discussed 
before making further progress 
towards this aim. This raised the 
question of a wider review of 
student support and this would 


Fowler. Reducing students’ 
reliance on social security 

Mr Meacher: While we under- 
stand the principle that students 
should be supported by grants 
and not out or the social security 
budget what is not acceptable is 
that benefit should be cut 
sharply before an adequate 
alternative grant system is 
worked out and implemented 
1 Student entitlement to.sodal 
security benefits has been grow- 
ing solely because ■ of the 
diminishing value of the grant 
which has now fallen by 20 per 
cent in real terms since 1979. 
What is proposed today is 
scarcely a genuine review when 
students are still being squeezed 
by the DHSS while proper 
compensation from the DfcS 
slips further into the future. 

This statement means that 
contrary to its own advisers and 
natural justice the Government 
still intends to take money from 
students on the basis of a vague 
promise of some future IOU. 
That is still wrong-headed and 
uqjusi. He should withdraw all 


these benefit cuts until the grant 
review is completed. 

Mr Fowler We are seeking to 
reduce the reliance of students 
' upon the social security system 
and 1 hope he supports that 
principle. 

We are seeking to return to a 
position where help for students 
is channelled through the educa- 
tional maintenance system and 
that must be right. Mr Meacher 
has failed to understand the 
significant concessions we are 
making. 

We stand by the principle that 
it cannot be right to have these 
two systems of grant side by 
side. 

Mr Janies Fawsey (Rugby and 
Kenilworth, C): His statement 
wifi be widely welcomed. We 
have the most generous system 
of student support in the west- 
ern world and these concessions 
will cost about £20 million. Will 
he confirm that both bousing 
and supplementary benefit will 
be availalabe to students in the 
tong vacations? 

Mr Fowler That help will be 
available in the long vacations. 
The proposals are confined to ; 
the short vacations. j 

Mr Frank Field (Birkenhead, j 
Lab* Does he really expect the 
House to believe that he got this 
through foe Treasury without 
detailing foe numbers of stu- 
dents losing, although he has 
calculated foe numbers gaining?

But it is not possible to give the 
exact figure he requires.

Morality of trade with 
undemocratic regimes 


July visit by Soviet Foreign Minister 


EXPORTS 

While looking at the morality of 
trading with South Africa, the 
Government should also 
examine its trading policies with 
at least some other evil and 
undemocratic countries. Mr 
Sydney Chapman (Chipping 
Barnet. C) said during 
Commons questions. 

He had ascertained from Mr 
Alan Clark. Minister for Trade, 
that the total value of UK 
exports for 1985 to China, 
Czechoslovakia, East Germany, 
Pakistan. Romania. Saudi 
Arabia and the USSR was £2.7 
billion. 

Mr Chapman said these were 


just some of the countries 
which, on any criteria, could not 
be called free and democratic 
and the UK did much trade with 
such oppressive regimes. 

Mr Clark: He raises an 
interesting point. Censorship, 
judicial executions, many of 
them in public. and 
imprisonment without trial are 
all characteristics of the 
countries he mentions and a 
number he does not. 

Were these elements to be a 
bar to normal trading relations, 
our trading would-be even more 
circumscribed than it looks like 
being at present. 

But such judgements are a 
matter for Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
the Foreign Secretary.

ARMS CONTROL 

The West could not and should 
not seek , a good relationship 
with foe Russians if that were at 
foe price of ceasing to defend its 
own values. Sir Geoffrey Howe, 
.Secretary of State for Foreign 
and Commonwealth 

Affairs^aid when he opened foe 
Commons debate, on foreign 


on arms control, regional and 
bilateral questions and human 
rights. 

In pursuing this dialogue it 
would be foolish to expect that 
tremendous unilateral gestures 
by the UK would in themselves 
be a catalyst for agreement 
between foe super-powers. But 
the UK could play a part in 
seeking to bring about progress. 

He said that East-West 
relations could be improved and 


affairs. This was not a counsel of tension reduced through 


despair, he told MPs. 

• However, the Government 
intended to maintained the 
dialogue between the Prime 
Minister and Mr Gorbachev. 
The Soviet Foreign Minister, 
Mr Shevardnadze was coming 
to Britain on July 14-15 and Sir 
Geoffrey Howe said he was 
looking forward to discussisons 


dialogue and exchanges. The 
United Kingdom, however, was 
determined to keep high on the 
international agenda foe Soviet 
Union's invasion and continued 
occupation of Afghanistan. 

If Mr Gorbachov wishes to 
impress foe world with Soviet 
desire for peace (be said) let him 
start in Afghanistan. 


It must be acknowledged that 
history had given the Russians 
cause to be suspicious of threats 
to their security. But even on foe 
most benevolent interpretation 
their military posture 
constituted the most massive 
over insurance in history. 

Neither was it just military 
tension which divided east and 
west The communist system 
itself had fanned suspicions by 
preventing the free flow of 
people and ideas. 

Europe and the United States 
needed each other. There had 
been some growing enthusiasm 
recently on foe Opposition 
benches for Europe as an idea, 
but not because they relished foe 
European relationship for its 
own sake.lt was because this 
represented a means of asserting 
an alternative to their 


instinctive, growing hostility to 
foe United States. 

For them (he said) Europe is 
sadly too often an alibi for knee 
jerk anti- Americanism. 

The presidency of the 
European Community would 
allow foe UK to deal with 
important internal issues and it 
was putting forward ideas for 
employment growth into the 
1 990s. That should form foe 
basis for a plan of action.

superiority over Nato

peril.

Extra public funds needed 
to close gap in service 

By Nicholas Timmins, Social Services Correspondent 



Radical changes in the Na- 
tional Health Service to pro- 
duce greater efficiency, plus 
encouragement for those who 
can afford it to spend more on 
their health care were called 
for yesterday by the Office of 
Health Economics. - 

Extra public funds for the 
health service are “urgently 
needed", foe office said. But 
extra public money alone will 
not close the steadily widening 
gap between what can be 
afforded and what medical 
science can achieve, foe drug 
industry-financed research 
centre said in a report on 
health service financing. 

To overcome the inefficien- 
cies in a large bureaucracy 
such as foe health service, 
market principles should be 
introduced so that health au- 
thorities could buy services 
from each other or from the 
private sector to encourage 
competition and good value 
for money. 

Alternatively, family doc- 
tors could be made the budget 
holders. When they referred a 
ient to hospital the money 


for the treatment would go 
with the patient. “In either of 
these ways foe best and most 
popular hospital departments' 
would flourish, while ineffi- 
cient units would eventually 
be closed down," the office 
report said. 

Such changes would intro- 
duce the. diseplines of. foe 
market to foe health service 
and could “greatly improve 
foe performance of aH those- 
working within the NHS". 

In addition. doctors should 
be persuaded to concentrate 
gn treatments which produce 
the greatest benefit, and the 
growth, of private and volun- 
tary care should be encour- 
aged in order to reduce the 
burden on foe health service. 

The office said thar present 
inadequacies in foe service 
meant that more than 1 , 200 . 
people died each year because 
their kidney problems were 
not treated. 

A further 600.000 people 
with severely raised blood 
pressure were not treated, 
often because their illness had 
.hot been diagnosed. And the 


lives of 1.200 babies would 
also be saved each year if* 
infant mortality rates could be 
improved to match those of 
the high social classes. 

Already 35 per cent of 
dental treatment and half of 
all spectacle expenditure is 
private while 1 3 per cent of all 
noif-urgent surgery is done 

privately. 

“Nothing should under- 
mine foe basic principle that 
first-class health care should 
be available free of charge, 
provided at the tax-payers* 
expense, for all those genuine- 
ly in need.” the report says. 

Such changes, the report 
says, would face opposition 
from many quarters, not least 
doctors and other health pro- 
fessionals who “resent the 
suggestion that their pattern of 
behaviour should be modified 
in order to provide better 
. value for money in the health 

service."

Off-duty PC pays £5,000 damages 


A salesman, who ended up 
in hospital after an assault by 
his neighbour, was awarded 
£5.000 damages for injuries in 
foe High Court yesterday. 

The incident occurred when 
Mr Philip Joyce, aged 54. 
asked Mr Phillip Lethbridge, a 
police constable aged 26. to 
move his car. 

Judge Lipfriend. making the 
award, said Mr Lefobndge. 
who weighs 15 stones, replied 
that he would move it when he 


was “good and ready", while 
washing his car in London 
Road, Thornton Heath, Croy- 
don. London, in October 
1983. 

Mr Joyce, who weighs eight 
stones, said be probably leant 
on Mr Lethbridge's car. Before 
he had time to move. Mr 
Lethbridge grabbed him by 
foe lapels of his jacket and 
struck him in foe groin. He 
was then punched in the left 
eye and fell to the ground.' . . 


The judge added that each 
time Mr Joyce tried to-get up 
he was put down again. 

Mr Joyce still suffers from 
headaches after the blow to his 
head, and the vision in his left 
eye has been impaired. 

The judge ordered Mr Leth- 
bridge. of Cannon Road, 
Bromley, south London, to 
pay the damages and costs of 
the action. He dismissed a 
counter claim for damages. 


He also teM MPs it w® likely 
that the review would be com- 
pleted in the coarse of foe next

Mr Alar Howarth (Stradbrd- 
ob-Avoo. O asked if there was 
any way other than tons 
through which students could be 
disentangled from foe dutches 
of the social security system- 
. Mr Baker said students would 
remain eligible for siqipte- 
mentary and anemptoyinent 
benefits daring foe fang vaca- 
tion. Benefits should not be 
withdrawn without a review to

Mr Anthony Steen (Sooth

of interest-free loans would be

Cromarty and Skye, SDP) asked 
whether additional firing allow- 
fflighr be extended to

Mrs Edwina Currie (Derbyshire

HOUSE OF LORDS 

Sums of money up to £35,000 
mifiion would be needed to deal 
with the boosing problem. Lord 
Dean of Beswkfc (Lab) claimed 
when he opened a debate in the 
House of Lords on the case for 
greater investment in public 
sector housing, and the need to 
reduce the watting time for local 
authority bouses. . 

He said that Mr Nicholas 
Ridley, Secretary of State for foe 
Environment, should withdraw 
from the Housing BA! foe- 
disgraceful proposals to allow a 
local authority . to sell off 
municipal tenancies over the 
heads of tenants, whether they 
1 iked it or not, and to destroy the 
security of 'tenure which they 
had historically enjoyed. 

Lord Ezra (L) said there was 
overwhelming evidence that the 
state of housing in Britain was 
deteriorating. 

They were far from foe 
Government's .manifesto 
commitment in 1983: “Our goal 
is to -make Britain foe. best 
boused country in Europe”. 

The Government had been 
unduly “concerned with 
ownership of ■■ bouses but - too 
little concerned 1 ' with the 
adequacy and physical 
condition of houses.

average limits. 

However, foe current limit for 
couples without young children, 
which was L7S times the single 
adult limit, would be increased 
to twice the single limit, as for 
couples with young children. 

On the time limit for which 
many of those under 26 could be 
paid as boarders at all. the 
Government proposed that foe 
existing exemption from time 
limits until July 28 1986 should 
be extended indefinitely. 

New boarders under 26 would 
however continue to be subject 
to time limits, which would not 
be changed, unless they came 
within the extensive range of 
exemption categories covering 
those for whom longer-term 
boarding was a genuine need. 

On residential care and nurs- 
ing homes, the Government 
proposed the limit for residen- 
tial care homes for the elderly 
should go up by £S to £125 a 
w eek, making an increase of £15 
a week overall since April 198S. 

In addition the Government 
intended to make five im- 
portant changes to meet specific 
problems: 

• An increase in the limit from 
£120 to £140 a week for those 
elderly people in residential care 
homes who were very depeh- 
dent and qualified for the higher 
ratetof attendance allowance:

damage done, by a petrol-, 
bomb attack on an Anglican 
church centre. 

The attack, he said yester- 
day, seemed highly organized

similar to others on church 
premises in. recent weeks. 

It had to be “a matter of 
concern” that no one had been 
_ apprehended for the attacks. 

Meanwhile, the South Afri- 
can Institute of Race Rela- 
; tions, an independent body, 
has published an estimate that 
1,782 people died in political 
violence between September 
1984 and the end of last 
month. 

In the first five months of 
this year, five people died on 
average every day, double the 
rate recorded last year. 

The institute said 213 peo- 
ple were killed in May, the 
most in any month. Of these, 
4] per cent were victims of 
conflict within black commu- 
nities, and 22 per cent were 
killed by police. It was not 
dear how the rest died. 

This year there has been a 
sharp increase in Internecine 
black strife, including the” 
murder of “collaborators”, 
and attacks by vigilantes on 
political, radicals.

Mr Wim de Voss, a free-

deponed from South Africa, 
-arrived at Heathrow yesterday 
: with one aim: “To return to 
.film what reallyisgoing-on.”-. 

He was taken to Johannes- 
. burg airport on Tuesday night' 
-with a high-speed police escort 
and only a briefcase as 
luggage: 

Mrde Voss, a Dutch nation- 
al. has been based in South 
Africa since the 1976 Soweto 
uprising. He said shootings, 
car bomb exploodns and riot- 
ing had continued for the past 
48 hours in many areas 
throughout the country. .. 

He was very- disappointed 
about losing his appeal in the

He said his family would 
join him in London but he did 
not know when. 

“Soweto is now entirely cut

tines. It has been impossible to 
film anything anywhere.” 

He thinks that earlier film 
he took of victims burning, 
and then of demonstration 
scenes last week, may be the 
reason for his expulsion. -

Western companies operat- 
ing in South Africa were 
yesterday warned by Mr Oli- 
ver Tambo, president of the 
banned African National Con- 
gress, that they were running 
“grave risks” by remaining in 
the country. 

“The demand for sanctions 
comes not only from the 
South African population but 
also from the workers (of these 
companies), and we cannot 
say that one day they will not 
turn against them,” be said at 
a press conference here after 
attending a United Nations 
conference on sanctions 
against South Africa. 

The time bad come to act, 
be said. Those who were 
holding back were encourag- 
ing the escalation of the 
violence. He believed that 
immediate and comprehen- 
sive sanctions against Pretoria 
would be effective, because 
“neither Botha, nor the busi- 
ness world, nor the white 
workers want their economy 
to be ruined.”

Call to end censorship 


The International Press In- 
stitute, rep re s en ti ng newspa- 
per publishers and journalists 
worldwide, called yesterday 
for the lifting of emergency 
censorship in South Africa. 

In a message to President 
Botha, Mr Pettr Galliner, 
president -of the Institute, 


wrote: “Such extensive and 
crude controls, in an attempt 
to conceal from your country- 
men and women, as well a$ the 
international community, the 
true state of affairs m South 
Africa, can only do even more 
harm to the already tarnished 
i m age your country has 
abroad.” 


Mr Tambo again criticized 
Britain, West Germany and 
the United States for opposing 
sanctions. The ANC was call- 
ing on the international com- 
munity to put pressure on 
President Reagan, Mrs 
Thatcher and Chancellor 
Kohl, as well as on President 
Botha of South Africa. 

In a message read out to the 
five-day conference. Senator 
Edward Kennedy said that he 
deeply regretted not being able 
to be with the delegates of 
some 120 countries “as you 
work to construct a pro- 
gramme of concerted, world- 
wide action to end apartheid 
in South Africa.” 

Expressing regret at the 
Reagan Administration's de- 
cision not to attend the confer- 
ence, he said that be believed 
the House of Representatives 
would vote “by an over- 
whelming majority” before 
the end of the week to pass the 
anti-apartheid Bill providing 
for new sanctions against 
Pretoria.

There’s a conspicuous element of greed behind 
the proposed Tape Levy. 

People in the music business are among the 
richest and most successful in the country. While 
young people, you may have noticed, tend to be 
at the opposite end of the economic spectrum. 

Yet the Government is about to introduce 
legislation which will redistribute as much as £12 
million worth of wealth, largely taken from the 
under 35’s, and, in the main, passed over to record 
!■ companies and music publishers. 

The means of achieving this is the Tape Levy, 
which is due for enactment in the next session of 
Parliament 

The music industry has convinced the Govern- 
ment that every tape buyer should pay extra, just 
because some of them may commit a technical 
violation of our archaic copyright laws. 

Yet the vast majority of blank tape usage is 
totally reasonable. 


Nevertheless, as supposed compensation to * 
an industry, which by any measurement is boom- 
ing, every person buying a blank tape is to be 
levied, i.e. fined. 

The greatest sufferers here will be the young, 
who buy more blank tapes than the rest of us. 

The very same young who are pushing album 
sales beyond even the glory days of the Beatles. * 
And who, in the buying of those records, have 
already paid for the right to listen to them any 
number of times. 

So what’s the difference if they choose to do 
so on their own blank tanes? * 


giSf&fkssl*: 


If you’re a tape buyer of whatever age, or if 
you’d simply like to preserve the basic English 
principle that you’re innocent until proven guilty, 
find out how you can help stop the Tape Levy 
becoming law.

Setback for Jayewardene 
over Tamil peace proposal 


Mrs Sirimavo Banda- 
ranaike’s opposition Sri Lan- 
ka Freedom Party (SLFP) 
decided yesterday not to at- 
tend next week's meeting of 
registered political parties' at 
which President Jayewardene 
is to present the 
Government's proposals for 
power devolution, in an at- 
tempt to solve the country’s 
ethnic problem. 

The central committee of 
the SLFP derided instead to 
send a delegation to the 
President before the June 25 
meeting to seek information 
about the proposals. 

The party expressed disap- 
pointment over the 
President's accusations at a 
rally on Sunday that the SLFP 
was trying to exploit the

current situation for its own 
political ends. 

At a time when the nation 
was on the brink of civil war, 
the party statement noted. 
President Jayewardene foiled 
to extend the hand of friend- 
ship to the opposition. 

The statement added that 
the President bad failed to 
place national interests above 
narrow party interests. 

Yesterday, the Cabinet ap- 
proved the government plan 
to solve the Tamil issue. 

The new proposals include 
the creation of elected provin- 
cial councils in the country’s 
nine provinces and the ap- 
pointment of chief ministers 
and a board of ministers 


enjoying the support of the 
majority of these councils. 

The plan also proposes a 
devolution of power. 

The Government is opti- 
mistic about the support of the 
registered political parties 
apart from the SLFP. 
However.tbe views of Mr 
Dinesh Gunewardene's 
Mahajana Eksath Peramuna 
will not be known until its 
central committee meeting 
later this week. 

Two other parties — the 
moderate Tamil United Liber- 
ation Front and the Tamil 
Congress — have so for not

The plan is to be presented 
to Mr Rajiv Gandhi, the 
Indian Prime Minister, later

Mexico debt fears 
rise after finance 
minister resigns 

From John Carlin. Mexico City 


The unexpected resignation 
of the Mexican Finance Min- 
ister. Senor Jesus Silva 
Herzog, has heightened specu- 
lation that Mexico is prepar- 
ing fora confrontation with its 
creditor banks, with a possible 
suspension looming of pay- 
men is on its $97 billion (£63 
billion) debt. 

While Senor Silva Herzog 
has given no public explana- 
tion of his decision to quit, it 
is believed he has ban under 
pressure from Cabinet col- 
leagues to adopt a tougher 
stance towards the interna- 
tional banks. 

Since the crash in oil prices 
earlier this year, the Govern- 
ment has faced ever greater 
pressure at home to renege on 
a debt which is asphyxiating 
the already depressed 
economy. 

But Senor Silva Herzog has 
long staked his credibility on 
the conviction that only 
through responsible negotia- 
tion can a solution be found to 
a debt problem which is as 
potentially dangerous to the 
big international banks as it is 
to Mexico. 

Britain’s Midland Bank, for 
example, lent so much money 
to Mexico in the late 1970s 
that 72 per ant of its 
shareholders* equity is tied up 
in the Mexican debt. 

Bui after four years of 
negotiating and re-negotiat- 
ing. first with the Internation- 
al Monetary Fund then with 
the banks, Mexico’s economy 
has. if anything, deteriorated. 

The country is finding it 
increasingly hard to persuade 
the IMF and the banks that 
the economy’s prospects war- 


rant a softening of repayment 
terms and a fresh injection of 
loans. 

Banking sources say negoti- 
ations with the IMF. which 
have been going on now for 
several months, have reached 
deadlock. The IMF is appar- 
ently unwilling to extend new 
credit to Mexico while the 
Government persists in refus- 
ing to combat 75 per cent 
inflation with drastic cuts in 
public spending. 

President Reagan and the 
US Federal Reserve Board 
chairman. Mr Paul Volcker, 
expressed concern this month 
at the stale of the Mexican 
economy, but insist that any 
bail-out would depend on a 
commitment by President de 
la Madrid's Government to 
carry out fundamental eco- 
nomic reforms. 

The Mexican Government, 
increasingly discredited politi- 
cally, has said it is not 
prepared to take measures 
which might risk fuelling pop- 
ular discontent still further. 

With an IMF agreement 


increasingly unlikely then, 
there is little room left for 
manoeuvre, and a showdown 
with the banks is expected. 

This is the eventuality Se- 
nor Silva Herzog has always 
sought to avert. He has said 
that while a debt moratorium 
may appear politically attrac- 
tive in the short term, it would 
have grave repercussions for 
Mexico's economic devel- 
opmenL 

His successor is Seilor Gus- 
tavo Petriccioli, who worked 
for more than 20 years in the 
Bank of Mexico, and has vast 
experience in public finance. 


De la Madrid poll was 
rigged, senator claims 

From Michael Binyon, Washington 


Senator Jesse Helms has 
publicly claimed that Presi- 
dent de la Madrid of Mexico 
was fraudulently elected in 
1982, and that his party 
falsified legislative poll results 
last year by keeping two sets of 
election books, “one public, 
one private”. 

The accusations were refut- 
ed by the Mexican Embassy as 
groundless and “probably in- 
tended to confuse public 
opinion". The State Depart- 
ment said it bad no reason to 
believe the charges and had 


never seen evidence to sup- 
port them. 

Senator Helms, chairman of 
the sub-committee dealing 
with US-Mexican relations, 
said documents he obtained 
from secret sources in Mexico 
showed that President de la 
Madrid received 39.8 per ant 
of the vote, rather than the 
claimed 71.3 per am He also 
said the ruling Institutional 
Revolutionary Party received 
only 48 per cent of the vote for 
the Chamber of Deputies last 
year, and not the 7 1. 1 per ant

South Koreans reject 
Pyongyang talks offer 

From Onr pim CorrespoDdetit, Tokyo • 


South Korea has swiftly 
rejected a North Korean pro- 
posal for talks on hatting both 
military exercises and- the 
expansion offerees. . 

Though the South said on 
Tuesday that It would “closely 
scrutinize” the proposal, a 
spokesman said yesterday that 
the offer by the North Korean 
Minister of Defence, Mr O Jin 
U, “does not deserve 
attention”. 

It was merely a propaganda' 
ploy anti “a scheme to shuck 
(sic) responsibility for the 
unilateral suspension (ti the

“If North Korea wants to 
make some proposals it 
should use e xi st ing channels 
and agree to a meeting of the

as a member of the Supreme Court 


US Supreme Court leans to the right 


FnnKfiehadBhyoa 

Washington 

President Reagan’s appofait- 
meat of Justice WflKain Refra- 
qmst to bead the Supreme 
Court gives him at last a court 
more .likely to aphold the 
conservative positions his Ad- 
ministratiou has pressed for 
the past six years. 

The retirement of Chief 
Justice Warren Burger after 
17 yean promises to alter the 
delicate political balance in 
America's highest tribmmL 
And just as President 
Johnson's social Tefonns were 
underpinned by Earl Warren's 
activist- court, in sympathy 
witii the goals of the “Great 
Society”, so today’s conserva- 
tives are jubilant that the third 
p&br Of the American Govern- 
ment may -now articulate un- 
ambiguously the same philo- 
sophy as the Admfmstratioa, 
rrying the Reagan legacy 
rward for years to come. 

To many, the Burger court 
has beea a disappointment. 
The right wing 1 as found it 


more moderate than conserva- 
tive. President Nixon’s four 
appointments did not lead to 
the expected counter-revolu- 
tion; foe court left a remark- 
able part of the Warren court 
ratings intact, cutting 
some tat overruling few of its 
derisions. It has also repeated- 
ly upheld its contr o versial 
1973 ruling allowing abortion. 

The left, bn the other hand, 
has watched witii ahum the 
retreat from activism, die 
; of greater freedom to 
and foe growing 
influence of the conservatives. 

Others have criticized the 
lack of any dear direction, the 
appearance of drift hi a sea of 
ambiguous compromises. Jus- 
tice Burger, many say, brought 
to the court neither presence 
norintelkcteal leadership. He 
seemed content to let foe two 
wings struggle for the hearts 
and opi ni ons of the three or 
four justices in the middle. 

Meanwhile, foe volume. of 
cases piled up, the opinions 
became wordier and the thrust 
of important jn&ngs less dear. 


Gases were treated more nar- 
rowly, and individual- opinions 
proliferated. The coortbched 
cohesion and gave an impres- 
sion of old men soldiering on. 

Chief Justice Rehnqmst will 
probably change this. One of 
foe youngest and most incisive 
of the rune justices, he has 
long been the acknowledged 
leader of the .conservative 
factious. Though his sharply- 
worded opinions have often 
left him in the dissenting 
minority, his . influence has 
grown steadily. He promises 
to restore to foe court vigour 
and intellectual clarity. 

The court wfl] remain an rid 
one, however. With five mem- 
bers over 77, foe average age 
today hi 74. After Justice 
Burger's departure next month 
and the arrival of Judge 
Antonin Scalia, aged 50, it will 
still be 71. Neither will the 
ideological balance alter sig- 
nificantly: Justice Burner was 
a conservative, law-and-order 
, tboflgh one wbomcreas- 
veered towards the cen- 


tre; Judge Scalia, the first 
Italianr American to be ap- 
pointed to the court, is also a 
conservative who. like Rehn- 
qnist, is a “strict 
constructionist” of foe Consti- 
tution, ami favours returning 
derision- making to individual 

An advocate of judicial re- 
straint, he believes, like Presi- 
dent Reagan, that the courts 
should defer to Congress in 
interpreting foe laws. But 
whereas under Justice Burger 
the conservative majority was 
blunted by a search for consen- 
sus, Justice Rehnqnist is like- 
ly to give the court a firmer 
conservative stamp. 

Presidents have often tried 
to “pack foe court” witii 
nominees sharing their views. 
But this rarely works. Justices 
are constitutionally and tem- 
peramentally fedependeut. Mr 
Reagan’s only other nominee. 
Justice Sandra Day 
O'Connor, is proving feistier 
and less predictably conserva- 
tive than many in the Adminis- 
tration might have hoped.

From Ahmed Fad

President Ershad took an-

yesterday when he partially 
revived the Bangladesh con-

government minister said 
martial law, which has been in 
force for more than four years, 
would continue. 

General Ershad issued three 
orders which revived provi- 
sions of the 1972 constitution, 
enabling the Government to 
bold the first session of the 
newly-elected Parliament un- 
der martial law. 

* On Tuesday, the genera]

presidential elections, expect- 
ed to be held next November. 

Meanwhile, Sheikh Hasina 
Wazed, head of the Awami

group in Parliament, said at a 
meeting in Tangfl, about 80 
miles from Dhaka, that unless 
martial law were lifted, her

derision to take its seats in 
Parliament. 


Crackdown by

Bangkok (AP) — Many Viet-

enriching themselves through 
crime and corruption, and will 
be severely punished in the 
courts, Vietnam's official 
newspaper says. 

Many party members, state

“have degenerated, become 
degraded and debauched, or 
committed such crimes as 
exploitation, theft, corruption, 
oppression of the masses and 
violation of socialist property 
and law,” Nhan Dan said.

▼ Trent Regional 
Health Authority, Ex parte 
Jones 

Before Mr Justice Nfacpherson 
[Judgment given June 17] 

The decision of a' health 
authority not to appoint to the 
post of consultant orthopaedic 
surgeon a candidate .recom- 
mended by the advisory 
appointment committee- was 
not susceptible of judicial 

review. 

Legislative regulation of 
health authority powers of 
appointment was bruited and 
did not amount tp statutory 
underpinning sufficient to re- 
move that function from the 
reahn of the ordinary law relat- 
ing to master and servant . 

Mr Justice Macpherson so. 
held in the Queen’s Bench 
Division dismissing an applica- 
tion by Robert Norman Jones 
for jndicia] review of the de- 
cision of the Treat Regional 
Health Authority not to appoint 
him consultant orthopaedic sur- 
geon in the Lincoln and Louth 
District contrary to the recom- 
mendation of tire advisory 
appointment committee: 

Mr David Pannick for the 
. applicant; Mr J. R M. Mfimo, 
QC and Mr RJ. Owen, for tire 
.. . • regional health authority. 

- MR JUSTICE MAC- 

c . PHERSON said that the ap- 
plicant sought judicial review of 
i-' w the derision of the Trent Re- 
^ \ gional Health .Authority 
whereby it was resolved that the 
post of consultant swtbopnedic 
_ -■ surgeon for the North Lincoto- 
‘ ,.v shire Health Authority at Louth 
, "■ County Hospital should be 
readvertised. 

... That derision meant that the 

health authority bad derided 
not to appoint the applicant to 
that post- . .. 

It was said that that derision 
was subject to the court’s juris- 
diction under Order 53 of the 
Rules of the Supreme- Coun, - 
and that the decision could be 
attacked upon the pounds that : 
it was Wednesbwry unreasoB-

Regulations made under 
. those provisions were - foe* No- 
tional Health Service (Appoint- 
ment of Consultants) 
Regulations (SI ]982 No 276). 

'I Those wero fimited regula- 
tions and made it necessary to 
advertise sppointments to.' 
which the rraulaiioos applied, 

and trovidea foal an .advisory- 
appointments committee 
. should consider all applications 
received by an ' appointing 
^authority. . 

/ So for as foe health 
was concerned, ' regulation 
provided: “(1) An authority 
shall not make an appointment 
to which these regulations apply 

(a) except from persons whose 
tames have been su bm itted, to ft 
by a committee wider, regula- 
tion 7; . . . 

' “(3) Where an anthcrity de- 
cides not to make an appoint- 
mem'fronr persons named by a 
committee or where an author- . 
ity is informed . -.that none of 
foe applicants is suitable, foe 
committee shall - be^ discharged 
and these regulations shall a®ly 
to any further proposal by the 
authority to' make an .appoint- 
ment to the relevant post as they 
applied to the- original 
proposal.**. ' 

The Schedules to; the Regula- 
tions laid down rules for. the 
constitution of appointment 
committees, and certain general 
provisons in. connection . with . 
tbeirfanctibns. . 

Nowhere in foe statutes or in 
foe Regulations' was there any 
-express statutory provision or. 
guidance which restricted or - 
controHed foe. health authority 
m its choice or method ofcboice 
of persons for employment ex- 
cept as set ou\ m the' 1982 . 
Regulations. 

The presc ri bed' terms and- 
eonditions. of service' were set 
out in & Nat lonaLHeahh Service 
Red Book revised to April I98L 

It was accepted by both sides • 
that- those randioons of service 
would have- been incorporated 
into any contract that might 
. have beeir given to the ap- ; 
pJkanL . 

When the relevant appointing . 
committee did its job ft had 
before h -particulars of t5 can- 
di dates, including those of foe . 
applicant Six candidates were 
shortlisted and interviewed. The 
applicant was the role candidate - 
recommended for appointment 
The vacancy bad been properly 
advertised, and all foe machin- - 
ery before foe advisory commix- • 
tee wa» in order. 

- . On foe day. of .his interview 
foe applirant was told that he ' 
would be ' recomntended. and 
that the appointment -was “due . 
to.be ratified” by foe health 
aufoority. . ' 

■ - In fact irwasnot a question pf 
ratification at alL since foe. 
appointment committee's -task- ■ 
was to submit names or make 
comments. _ Appointment, as . 
-such was entirely a matter for 
foe health authority.- - 
: : 'Afterfoat iht'aOTficani'sref- 
erenoes werexonsidered by foe

refentdto Apenod of sick leave . 


given to 1985 following what was 
described sis - a “temporary 
aberration of bebavious with 
anmesfa”. 

The applicant was asked to 
provide a medical report 
concerning that period of rick 
leave. Before the .report could 
have been received by the health 
■' aufoority the applicant received 
two unfortunate and over-zeal- 
ous letters ' which plainly re- 
ferred to his appointment as if it 
were an accomplished fact. ' 

fait the applicant knew, or 
should have known then, that 
the health authority was the 
appointing authority; and be 
knew foal there might have been 
a medical quay about his. rick 
leave. 

Two. medical reports were 
before the court. Neither doctor 
believed, that there was any 
medical or neurological reason 
why foe applicant should not be 
appointed. But it was not for 
them to say as the decision 
remained with the health 
authority. : It was; their duty to 

- give an -hottest and conridered 
view to the autbority. 

The first question was 
whether foe court had jurisdic- 
tion- and thus whether foe 
matter was justiciatrie at all. 

: It was-argued by Mr Pannick 
that m their appointing role foe 
health . authority per fo r m ed a 
pubfe law function, acting, as he 
said, pursuant tostatulory pow- 
ers and duties as to the manner 
of appointment. . ' 

. There , was, be submitted, 
statutory underpinning of the 
appointment process, so that- the 
matter was.in the field of public 
-law .and . subject to au the 
processes and principles of ju- 
. dteiaLreview. 

Mr Milmo . argued that 
employinent by. the public 
-authority was not enough in 
itself to inject any element of 
public Jaw '.into toe matter 
• sufficient to justify- die court's 

intervention. 

. . Nor, be said, was these any 
statutory underpinning of. the 
process of appointment in this 
case except as expressly pro- 
vided. .by the 'Regulations. He 
relied upon ft r East Berkshire 
Health Authority. Ex parte 
Walsh (JI98SJ QB 152). 

In foe instant case foe prin- 
ciples' of Walsh applied and 
governed . the application. 
Seniority of, status made no 
foflerence: 

- The vital requirement before 
judicial review was available 
was statutory underpinning and 


-these- was hone -here. The 
Regulations which governed foe 
..matter .were limited in extent. 
They ensured that onlyquafified 
* and prima facie suitable persons 
came before foe health authority 
for consideration. . 

They provided a- screen or 
sieve , for that purpose by the 
operation of appointments 
committees. And nobody might 
be conridered by the health 
authority unless the - vacancy 
had beea advertised and foe 
appointments committee las 
done its job. 

Beyond that the health 
aufoority might employ such 
. person as it.mtebt itself deter- 
mine. in that. function and at 
that stage it was in no way 
different from any . commercial 
or other employer. 

In considering that primary 
question the court looked at R v 
Secretary cf State fir the Home 
Department .Ex parte Benwdl 
019851 OB 554) and R- * 
Hertjordshire County Council, 
Ex parte ' National Union of 
Public Employees ([1985] 1RLR 
258). BOfo were dismissal cases. 

The question was whether any 
statutory provision truly bore 
upon the process of appoint- 
ment by foe health authority 
once it had before it one or more 
applications screened for it by 
the appointments committee. 

His Lordship concluded that 
there was no.' such statutory 
connection or underpinning at 
thaz.stage.in the process. 

It was true that that meant 
that the applicant had no rem- 
edy againsrthe rejection of his 
application. But no more did 
any applicant for any employ- 
ment have such a remedy. 

.There was to the case no real 
distinction from,- an ordinary 
master and servant case. A 
consultant surgeon was an em- 
ployee: and be held no “office” 
or position which placed him on 
a different plane any more than 
did the nursing officer in Walsh. 

The common law-had always 
to -some extent, protected 
employees at the fbmg stage, 
and the industrial legislation of 
recent years had extended that 
protection; but foere had never 
been any legal rwht to be .hired 
and to -bis Lordship's judgment 
there was none here, nor any- 
thing- which- required the court 
to - supervise tint stage of the 
relationship because of any 
statutory underpinning.

THE TIMESI 

PROFI LE 

SIR PETER SWINNERTON-DYER 


U ntil recently university 
administrators were 
used to working in a 
rarefied and cosy 
world where the rules 
were known only to themselves 
and a handf ul of civil servants. No 
more: higher education is now at 
the top of the political a gen da , 
pushed there by the financial 
squeeze and by the paucity of 
student grants. - 
Prominent among those who 
have stormed the ivory towns is 
Sir Peter Swinnerton-Dyer, chair- 
man of the University Grants 
Committee and renowned for bis 
vigorous leadership of a commit- 
tee which used to operate by 
gentleman’s agreement. Universi- 
ties have been forced to wake up to 
the outside world, to think about 
the relative quality of their re* 
search and teaching. 

Yet when he was offered the job 
Sir Peter thought long and hard 
about it So few people, after all, 
appeared to want it. “I asked 
myself whether 1 wanted to do it 
and then I thought ’Could I live 
with myself if I turned it down? 
The answer was no." 

For Sir Peter, former vice- 
chancellor of Cambridge Univer- 
sity, distinguished mathematician 
and sixteenth holder of his 
family’s baronetcy, the job was a 
considerable challenge. “Despite 
my rather odd and limited back- 
ground, some people whose opin- 
ion I respected said I was clearly 
the right person.” 

And so in 1983 he threw in his 
job as master of St Catharine’s 
College. Cambridge, to become a 
fully fledged member of the great 
and the good, advising the Gov- 
ernment on how money should be 
allocated to the universities. The 
second half of his family mono 
“Unwilling to Frighten, Unac- 
quainted with Fear’ has stood 
him in good stead in recent weeks 
as he has taken on the Govern- 
ment; the first halt however, has 


had to be shelved as be adminis- 
tered cuts to the universities. 

He emerges from the fray with 
astonishing good humour and 
displaying all the self-confidence 
one might expect from an intellec- 
tual with an Eton and Cambridge 
pedigree. His hide is “reasonably 
thick” hesays, but he has come in 
for less venom thanletters to The 
Times might suggest 

It was a surprise to many that a 
Conservative Government should 
appoint a prominent member, of 
the Social Democratic Party to the 
job of buffer between it and the 
universities in a period of re- 
trenchment. Sir Peter was thought 
so “wet” that he has acquired the 
nickname of “spin dryer” 

I t is believed that Mrs 
Thatcher did not want to 
give him the job but was' 
prevailed upon by Sir Keith • 
. Joseph, the former Secretary 
of Slate for Education and Sci- 
ence, who Eked Sir Peter’s mind- 
and temperament The decisive 
factor was thought to be his tough 
valedictory speech as Cambridge's 
vice-chancellor in 1981 in which' 
he criticized ageing, burnt-out 
dons “who draw a hill day’s pay 
for half a day’s work”. Mrs 
Thatcher likes that kind of talk. 

In reality Sir Peter is in the 
“tough but tender” mould of 
politician. He courts unpopularity 
with the Government by saying 
publicly, and increasingly fre- 
quently, that universities mil have 
to close unless the system receives 
more funding. Academics distrust . 
him because of his radicalism. 

Rumour had it that be was a 
candidate for the presidency of 
Trinity College, Cambridge, last 
time round, but was ruled out as a 
dangerous radical Dons do not 
like, for example, his criticism of 
the academic tenure system or the 
recent UGC “selectivity” exercise 
he masterminded which ranked

Sr Peter, chairman of the University Grants Committee: “Open decision nMtfag is necessary” 


universities according to the quali- 
ty of their research, and rewarded 
them accordingly. 

-There is undoubtedly substance 
in the criticisms of the university 
ratings. Even Sir Peter says: “We 
have actually probably made one 
indisputable error per university 
in the assessments, and for a given 
university we don’t know which 
department we have made that 
error in. But to do as well as that is 
actually pretty impressive in the 
circumstances.” 

Although Sir Peter denies it, it is 
believed that he has been told by 


ministers in the last.few days to 
shut up and to stop frightening the 
public with talk of university 
closures. He had to give up his 
involvement with the SDP on his 
appointment to the UGC job. In 
fact, he was asked by Sir Keith to 
keep a low profile, which meant 
that he had to stop making public 
his opposition to Trident' 

As an academic and an effective 
political operator. Sir Peter be- 
lieves in persuading by_the power 
of argument. His outspokenness is 
partly a function of this , and he 
argues an extremely, powerful 


case. This must be the key to his 
achievement His proposals for 
the reorganization Of London 
University and his -success in 
pushing through the merger of the 
University of Ulster and Ulster 
Polytechnic - jobs he undertook 
before his current post -'testify to 
his consummate operating rfrifi- 
Sir Peter jokes sardonically that 
in Ireland - as in academic politics 
- success depends on the ability to 
drink one’s opponents under the 
table. In Cambridge that entails 
imbibing a great deal of port; in 
Ireland, Black Bush whiskey. Sir 


Peter is dearly able to stand 
-. upright after a lot .of both. . . 

; He will be able to weather the 
current storm over university 
; rangings partly because he is so 
open about the way in which he 
makes decisions - something 
which cannot be said of ms 
predecessors. It may not be the 
most efficient way to proceed, .he 
says, “but open decision making is 
necessary in a democracy” 

The leaders of the Association 
of University Teachers, the uni- 
versity lect ur ers’ union, may not 
like bis decisions, but they know, 
the criteria he is using and they 

respect his straighforwardness. 
University vice-chancellors feel 
the same, though they may won- .

behalf of the universities and how 
far.is is frying to make a case for 
the Secretary of States Significant- : 
ly, dvfl servants admire him. “He 
is playing our game”, said one. 

Sir Peter has a lot of fens among 
those who know him and enemies 
among those who do not A 
bachelor don nntil ihree years ago, 
when he married Dr Harriet 
Crawford, a part-time archaeology 
lecturer, he is gregarious, friendly 
and dauntmgly clever — “too 
dever by hair, some say. 

There is no false modesty there. 
“I did extremely well at school”, 
he says. “If you are any goodat 
maths you are very good at it and - 
-itcomes dead easy.” He got every 
scholarship be went in for - fins 
from tiie Dragon School, Oxford, 
to Eton and then from Eton to 
Trinity College, Cambridge. . 

After a research fellowship, tee 
plodded bis way up the academic 
-ladder. He admits |» one disap- ■ 


pointment in agfitteringcareenhe 
feiled to get an assistant lecture* 
ship hi the- maths department at 
Cambridge and had to settle fora.y 
job m the computer laboratory. v 
This began an important in- 
volvement m the early years of 
computing at Cambridge, after 
which - be became ; a professor, 
spent a sabbatical year si Harvard, 
and proceeded to more worldly 
jobs in university administra tion. 

D uring his spare time, of 
which there is Sole; Sir 
Peter reads history. In 
his younger days he 
. - used to play bridge “I 

played very intensively for some- 
thing tike 20 3fe*f5 and at the end, 
when f gave it up, 2 would have 
been oa any last of world class 
players”, he says mo&sdy. 

He throws- himself into life with'' 
en ormo us zest Where once, as 
master of ft Catharine’s, he played 
squash and tennis for the college 
first team he now attends funo* 
lions in London during the week 
and “destroys” his garden at 
weekends. 

At the age of 59, Sr Peter has 
another two years to so in the job. 
Despite the bulging tn-ensy and the 
functions, he dearly enjoys it 
Would be like to serve a second 
term? “The expectation, is that in 
another two years I will go back to 
Cambridge?, he says cautiously. 
Whether h£* does or not w& 
probably depend on the Govern- . j 
merit in power.. 

_ If. the call comes from the 
Department ' of Education and 
Sdencc, Sir Peter is likely to grab 
the poisoned chalice again, eager 
for another challenge.

Almost four rnOes outside 
. Cochabamba in the agricultur- 

— - al heartland of Bolivia, along a 

bumpy, dirty, pot-holed road 
..r next door to a. turkey form, is 
the San Martin de Forres 
. Home for Boys* The boys are 

— drug addicts, the broken, trag- 

_ ic product of Bolivia’s boom-

Housed at what was once an* 
orphanage are 45 youngsters 
ranging in age from six years 
to 20. Most of them are 

— phQUrox, smokers of cocaine 
paste (in Spanish, baseU the 
sticky substance produced in 
the first stage of processing 
coca leaves into hydrochloride 
(cocaine powder). Most have 
worked the Prado area of 
downtown Cochabamba, -a 
long boulevard where pidOos, 
amt almost anything else, may 
be obtained on the sly. 

Richard, 15, came from the 
^ mining centre of Ornro to 
Cochabamba six mouths ago 
with his family. His parents 
fought violently, he says, and 
he looked for work and found 

none. Thai be found the 

relative comfort of life mi the 
streets and was soon smoking 
and selling pitiUos with boys 
and girfs of his own age and 
younger. Then be became 
bored with the streets. “You 
get skinny, your lungs hurt” 
when yon smoke the paste, be 
says. 

According to drug abase 
experts in La Paz and else- 
where, tiie effects of smoking 
paste are physical deteriora-

Qn the Bolivian streets young children die 
from their addiction to cocaine paste. For 
many the San Martin refuge is a last chance

and eventual death. In late 
May, two. boy -addicts, aged 
nine and U, woe found dead 
Of exposure in La Paz after

malnourished. 

At San Martin die boys are 
given a second chance. For 
some who have ran away from 
the home and then chosen to 
return, ft is a third and fom-th 
chance . For many, it is their 
last chance. 

The home is not fancy, or 
even comfortable by most 
people’s standards. Beds are 
arranged along the walls in 
military barracks* fashion. 
Meals are served in n central 
mess hall There are dasses mi 
to secondary school The 
small nmnber of paid staff are 
assisted by volunteers and the 
children themselves. 

Antonio, 1 i, Omar, six, and 
Freddy, nine, are three of the 
younger boys at San Martin. 


They are among tbe pitafbx, or 
“little ones”, most of whom 
are at the home for two yean. 
Many crave a friendly face 
and a bag. One regent visitor 
was only halfway out of his car 
when . he' found Antonio 
wrapped around frbn. 

The home Is financed by die, 
church and private donations. 
Tbe Bolivian government has 
approved the programme, bat 
provides no funds. 

Dreg addiction rn BoBda is, 
a rapidly growing problem. 
Estimates of the somber of 
addicts range from 200,000 to 
30fMH)0,or4 to 5 per cent of 
the population. According to 
Dr Augusts Saavedra, director 
of the OHly drug abuse clinic in 
La Paz, die nation's capital, 
many of these are. under the 
age of 15. “The fundamental 
problem we have is economic, 
our hands are tied”, he says. 
Saavedra’s, clinic is usually 
without funds, and has only 
eight beds. He estimates that 


' in La Paz alone there are some 
30,000 addicts. Tie ^oGUos.'or

“I came (to Cochabamba) 
with the idea of working. I 
couldn’t find work but I found 
bad friends”, soys Victor, one 
of the.boys, After six mmiths 
at the home, he is now a prize 
student at dm nearby coUgio 
(secondary school) and plans 
to enter die national military 
academy when he leaves.

home- Most are brought in by 
the police. “We are trying to 
get to the print where the. 
children will -come by 
themselves” Guzman says. 

“If we don’t take, care, then 
we are going to have a very 
serious problem” says Colo-

children throughout Bolivia, 
the problem is already here.

John Wallace has never for- 
gotten, how bored he was with 
Haydn's Trumpet Concerto at 
theag&of-18. - - 

Now 37, and one of the 
country’s - leading trumpet . 

players; he* is “suitably 
ashamed of his youthful in- 
sensitivity towards the mas- 
terpiece, but admits; “At 18 all 
you want to do is play lots mid 
lots of different pieces, and 
unfortunately .the trumpet 
doesn't have lots and "lots of 
different pieces to play.” 

Asjirincipai friimpet with, 
the Philhannonia Orchestra, 
Wallace is only too aware of 
the pitifully smalt repertoire 
for' the classical trumpet. 
However, Unlike other- fine 
trumpeters who have-dope 
little- more than bemoan their ‘ 
fot over the jrears,. be Is 
actively engaged to improving 
matters. 

He has dedicated himself to 
unearthing . 'some of the’ 
world’s forgotten baroque 
works written for the trumpet 
which have become buried in 
the musical archives. 

His search has taken him 
across the world, in conjunc- 
tion with' the Phitharmonia’s . 
tour schedule. “If I get offered 
a date in northern Italy I 
always take it, because all the 
towns there have got libraries 
with trumpet music in them.” 
He has built up a network of - 
informants who keep their '- 
eyes and ears open on his 
behalf. He has also uncovered 
the unique collection of about 
a thousand trumpet works 
amassed by the late Robert 


John Wallace: always serfbbting out some music 


Min ter, a British, enthusiast 
who scoured the globe ior his 
remarkable hoard and stored 
it m shoe boxes. . 

. And this Sunday, at tbegala 
opening concert of theOystal 
Palace Bowl summer season, 
Wallace and tbe Philhannonia 
will be presenting, .the first 
p e rfor ma nce in modem times 
of a recent discovery:-. Writer’s 
Theme and Variations for 
Trompet aisd Orchestra^ , 
For Wallace it is a crusade 
of love into'botfLthe past and 
the future. “The pieces which 
are new to me and'.new to 
■most perforating musicians in 
this country are not new to a 
few academic musicians”,, be 
says. “But the academics don’t 
know the quality tif the mtlsic 
bemuse . the. pieces haven’t 
been performed! It's time now 
to exhume " them, " perform 
them and see if they are -worth 
adding to the repertoire of the 
instrument. Only by~ perform- 
ing them inpubuccan yousee 

If they have got any worse.” 

V As part of his ambition to 
restore the classical trumpet to 
its mid-18th century glory, he 
has formed The Wallace Col- 
lection. a dozen of the finest

‘The orchestra think 
Fm bonkers* . 

It all adds up to a remark- 
able achievement For Wallace, 
a miKhand modest Scot- who 
has several times considered 
giving up the trumpet entirely. 
“I never started out with the 
intention of becoming a per- 
forming musician’’, he says. “I 
only ever played the trumpet 
through the necessity oLmak- 
ing enough money to live. It 
was when I thought of the 
alternatives that I went back 
to playing each time.” 

In feet, as a boy to Fife, be ' 
always wanted to be a com- 
poser. “I used to go up a local 
hill take . some, manuscript 


with me and write things 
down.” His. family, however, 
was heavily into.orass bands 
and his fether, a joiner, was 
keen feat his only son should 
become a trumpeter. 

Wallace studied music at 
King's College, Cambridge, 
York University and the Roy- 
al College of Music before 
auditioning for the position of 
assistant principal trumpet 
. .with the London Symphony 
Orchestra to 1974. He was 
“incredibly surprised” when 
he got the job because “I 
didn’t think I was any good”. 

Only in the past two years 
has his search for bidden 
trumpet work borne fruit, and 
he lives in a constant state of 
anticipation over. what dusty 
gem wfll turn up next on the 
doorstep of the semi-detached 
house in Croydon thgt he 
shares with his Australian wife 
mid two small children. 

- As well as the problem of 
getting into foreign libraries he 

is frequently confronted with £ 
the complications, of East 
European and Italian bureau- 
cracies. It is also an expensive 
and time-consuming obses- 
sion. “The orchestra laugh at 
me because I'm always scrib- 
bling out some bit of miisic on 
buses and planes. They think 
ITn absolutely bonkers and I 
think they’re right. • 

“But apart from my- com- 
pulsion to do h, I fed.h is 
beneficial to tiie instrument if 
there is actually more music 
for the people who are coming 
up to play.” • 

. His wife Iras got used to 
living with his passion. “At A 
least she knows - that if I'm 
working, I'm happy. Arid it's 
better than some of the other 
manifestations of Scottish 
male behaviour”, says Wal- 
lace.

But if the Apostles encouraged the

one gets his drift. One of the most 
extraordinary features of English 
cultural life in the first half of this 
century has been the unfailing ability 
of the great public schools and great 
universities to nurture a race of fools, 
crooks, and boobies. If we are now 
governed by the peril bourgeoisie and 
the picayune descendants of Samuel 
Smiles, the once “ruling class" has 
only itself to blame. 

But perhaps this is old news. The 
most interesting aspect of Sinclair’s 
book Hes in his treatment. of Cam- 
bridge science, which in his account 
represents the unversity’s most im- 
portant contribution to the Twentieth 
' Century. Here he sees the academic 
tradition at its best. Of course the 
| results were not always those which 
were intended: the tradition of free 
1 access to -research meant that Soviet 
scientists woe able to acquire the 
details of atomic development; but! 
more importantly, Cambridge scien- 
tists were betrayed by their “arts" 
colleagues. 

I n what Crossman once called “an 
Age of Treason" Cambridge- 
trained spies were passing on 
secrets from Cambridge-trained 
scientists. 

Never have CP. Snow’s “Two 
Cultures'* been more dramatically 
juxtaposed. And indeed it was the 
scientists, not the artists, who were 
the true idealists. The “arts" culture 
had provided only coterie knowledge 
and narcissistic self-analysis; the 
scientific culture had encouraged 
intellectual openness and enquiry. 

But it seems that both Cambridge 
' traditions have now disappeared. 
Sinclair charts the decline of the 
Apostles into the Fifties, as it turned 
imo a chib which, like any other club, 
is really only of interest to those who 
belong to it. If it still exists, no doubt 
hs members are solemnly swearing 
each other to secrecy, or wearing 
funny hats, or organizing trips to 
Charleston with the Moonies. 1 think 
a finis can be written across this little 
chapter of English cultural history. 

More interesting is the : fate of 
Cambridge science; since, as Sinclair 
says, “the acts of the Apostles wem 
small change to the constructions of 
the Cavendish.” But he suggests that 
this scientific tradition has now been 
fatally compromised by the exigen- 
cies of national security, and by the 
political management of advanced 
technology — that free access to re- 
search isa thing of the past. This may 
or may not be true: to judge from the 
impenetrable prose of technical pub- 
lications, only the scientists will ever 
know. One thing is certain, however 
whatever disasters have fallen upon 
it, Cambridge itself .wiD continue to 
adopt its high moral tone- in all 
possible circumstances. Andrew Sin- 
clair has written something very like a 
tragkromedy.

The Invaders Plan is the

But I have to admit that this is 
tremendous stuff, written in a

of the emotional .kind for

feminine intuition and analyt-

Boy lan (p. 150) is magni 
the simple repetition of "Not

the “Cyclops" episode Boris 
Hupinkoff makes a new and 
welcome appearance: 


• The theme “word known to 
all- men” is hinted at- as easly 
as the introverted “Proteus” 
episode, where Stephen wan- 
ders on the strand. The Motif 


reoccurs in the various refer- 
ences to “Love’s Old Sweet 
■Song" which Molly Bloom is 
to sing on her tour. And is 
•asserted in Bloom’s encounter 
with the Cyclops 
titizen:“Love, says Bloom. I 
mean the opposite of hatred." 
All aspects of lave and loving 
are represented throughout 
the novel: Ironically, in the 
“Circe" episode, where ■ the 
nature of love, is debased, the 
allusions are most poignant 
Drank, beaten-up, Stephen 
recalls fragments of the Yeats 
poem. 

This is the most important 
finding of Professor Gabler 
and his learned colleagues, but

At the same time, the 
scholars have been too metic- 
ulous in restoring what were 
evident literal errors in the 
original fair-copies. WHile it 
is surprising that many pas- 
sages that would appear to be 
straightforward (such as in 
“Laestiygomans’O have many 
emendations, the long accu-

enjoyed (as in “Cyclops" and

FOLLIES 

A National Trust Guide 
By Gwyn Headley and 
Wim Metdenkerap 

(Cape, £15) 


After a week of rummaging 
around inside it, turning from 


text to photographs, I am left 
with the sincere wish to' see 
both men cemented inside one 
of the follies they describe so 
beautifully. That, of course, is 
a tribute to them. 

They have missed nothing. 
If yon have ever been startled 
by a pyramid in a field at 
sunset, or come on a gale in a 
wood with no paths leading up 
to it, then you will find it here. 
It took them 20 years to write 
this book, and all the woods 
were visited: there ait over 
500 pages. 


Yet they chose to do it 
county by county, wood after 
wood, hilltop after hilltop, so 
it is too repetitive to be a good 
read, but also too inexact to be 
a gazeteer. The authors have 
been obliged to blur locations, 
as most follies are privately 
owned and dangerous. 

Just as the lives of the rich 
lunatics who commissioned 
the follies were a race between 
the builders and 'the men m 
the white coals to see who 
would get to them first, so 
your reading of this book will 
be a race between fury and 
fascination. 

- Some of it is astonishing. 


There is the tree in the wood 
near Godaiming, from which 
a ramp leads down 40 feet into 
the earth to a wharf with a 
boat moored. If you get on 
board there is an underground 
waterway that opens on a lake, 
in the centre of which is an 
island, and under the island an 
underwater ballroom. This 
was built at the turn of the 
century fay a financier who, 
when found guilty of fraud, 
committed suicide in the dock 
of the Old Bailey. But it is all 
tantalizingly inexact What 
sort of man was he? Why did 
he build it? Who owns and 
maintains it now? 

Visions like this keep loom- 
ing up and vanishing, like 
those strange boats in the 
A forte d’Arthur. Cemented 
down, the authors would be 
obliged lo answer: your ques- 
tions. As it is what they have 
. done is create their own folly, 
huge and mysterious and ami- 
able. I am quite baffled by this 
book.

CRIMINAL TRESPASS 
By Helen Hndson 

Chat to & Wbndus, £9. 95 


This is a tale of malice 
through the looking glass, 
deliciously told by Celia Dale 
in clear, dean, patient prose. 
The menace is always half- 
perceived, as out of the corner 
of one’s eye. Yet Ihe^thre&t in 
that back bedroom, Mrs 
Hagai's cave, is more unset- 
tling than that fn Dracula’s. 
Castle! • ....... 


If Oliver Twist found Nine- 
teenth-Century London tough * 
going, he should have tried 
Twentieth-Century New 
York. Thai is where eight- 
year-old Robby Bunts finds 
himself after being evacuated 
from his prep school on the 
death of his aristocratic par- 
ents during the blitz. Unfortu- 
nately for him, his American 
protector is newspaper report- 
er Thaddeus Lowry, a proto- 
type Lunchtime O’Booze. 
whose favourite brand of 
Dunkirk spirit is served in the 
forin of a bottle. 

Robby spends the first pan 
of Safekeeping looking for 
someone to look after him in 
the Big Apple. Then life lakes 
a turn .for the worse when he 
■becomes the inadvertent wit- 


ness to a murder, committed 
by a hoodlum of his recent 
acquaintance called Tony 
Savalio. From that moment 
he is literally running for his 
life, a desperate Savalio in hot 
pursuit 

The resemblance to Oliver 
T*ist should not be over- 
played. Nor is it in the same 
class as Empire of the Sun, 
that other, more poignant tale 
of a tittle boy lost in wartime. 
But it's an entertaining read 
nonetheless, brisk and good- 
humoured with plenty of larg- 
er-than-life New York 
characters — upon whom in- 
deed its success largely, 
depends. 


Criminal Trespass is also set- 
in the United States. Bui there 
any similarity ends, This is the. 
story of Rannee Simms, a 
black mill-worker’s daughter 
from Alabama who, it is said, 
is reared in fear of God and 
terror of the white man. 
Poverty, degradation and, in- 
directly, the Ku Klux Klan 
propel her Northwards, in 
seandi of better tilings to 
come.. 

It is not easy reading, and 
the use of Deep South dialect 
does not -help. But Helen 
Hudson's descriptive writing, 
when she allows it to take 
over,, is very good. 


This assessment of the USA 
by random selection has the 
vigour, haphazardness, and 
freshness of the country 
portrays. We are hmtled from 
Alaska to Florida. We rash 


through Texas, Chicago, and 
the Midwest. 


We sit in .a 
traffic jam in New York. 
Washington DC and Califor- 
nia are not on the itinerary, 
and there is no map to show ns 
where we have been. 

The tour is enjoyable, and 
the picture is recognizably true 
of what is seen, so far as I can 
judge from my brief and 
occasional visits to America. It 
is still a land of optimism; of 
the belief for which there is 
much evidence, that there is no 
barrier to men and women 
making a fortune from scratch 
if they try hard enough; of the 
feeling that the Frontier is still 
there. It would hare to be to 
induce people to live in Alaska 
where the motor car registra- 
tion plate reads “Alaska The 
Last Frontier' 

Disappointingly Fishlock 
treats President Reagan with 
condescension. He really does 
see .him as tittle more than a 
film actor, and approves 
because of the silly opinion 
that only an actor would know 
bow to present himself as a 
President should. This is a 
serious misreading of 
Reagan’s qualities as a 
politician. 

He may not be able to win a 
debate abost economics with 
Professor Galbraith, bat he 
does not need to. 10s common 
sense directs him to the right 
derision. It t$ obvious tool! but 
the prejudiced that the Ameri- 
can economy is for stronger 
now than it was when Reagan 
first became President. He 
was' given Americans * re- 
confidence. These are 
not the skills of a ham actor, 
though he has probably never 
heard of Sartre. 

If there is a fault with Mr 
FishJock's entertaining ami 
powerful book It is that he 
does npt go deep enough. He 
has concentrated too much on 
the brash, noisy, and immedi- 
ately obvious oddities of 
American life, and too little on 
the quality of its burgeoning 


culture. America has . Philis- 
tines in plenty, but it is not a

Royal psalm 
qualms 

Listen carefully to the psalms sung 
at the Prince Andrew-Sarah Fer- 
guson wedding. The Rev David 
Sox, an American Episcopal min- 
ister licensed to practise in Lon- 
don, claims to have heard that the 
couple have requested only those 
which carry no mention of Israel 
presumably because they do not 
want to offend the .Arab world. 
-Have you ever gone through the 
psalms to see where this would 
leave you?" asks the horrified Sox. 
*^ion appears in every other 
psalm." If the bridal pair are to be 
totally apolitical they should 
avoid Psalm 83. which not only 
mentions the Philistines —ancient 
enemies of the Israelites — but a 
host of other predecessors of 
peoples now surrounding them. 
On the same basis, out also should 
go Psalms 81 and 106. with Egypt 
prominent: 8? and 137 (Babylon): 
and 114 (Jordan). From Bucking- 
ham Palace rings the oft-sung 
plainchant no comment. 

Career ladder 

Derek Hatton's expulsion from 
the Labour Party apears to have 
done less than irreparable harm to 
his reputation on Merseyside. 
Nine Labour councillors have just 
voted the vociferous opponent of 
metropolitan county abolition 
back into the chair of one of the 
successor boards, the Merseyside 
Fire and Civil Defence Joint 
Authority. Six Alliance coun- 
cillors voted against and two 
Tories abstained. The £1.200 
allowance that accompanies the 
chairmanship should help Hatton 
make ends meet if he resigns, as he 
has threatened, his job with 
Knowsley Council in a row over 
flexible working. Hatton is a 
former fireman; his interest in 
civil defence is less well 
documented. 


Sky eye 


New Forest hippies could soon be 
buzzed by a new spy in the sky: 
Hampshire Police are considering 
rehiring Optica observation air- 
craft, a year after two policemen 
died in a crash on the plane’s first 
day with the force. The publicity 
following the accident sent the 
original company into receiver- 
ship. but businessman Alan 
Haiku ey bought its assets, saved 
the project and has now chalked 
up half a dozen orders. The 
company claims the plane's bub- 
ble-shaped cockpit and slow speed 
would be ideal for monitoring the 
peace convoy. The force at present 
uses a small Cessna for the task- A 
decision is unlikely until after the 
publication of the Accidents In- 
vestigation Branch report in a 
couple of months’ time. 

9 The man from the Nova Scotia 
Mail Star was clearly on foreign 
ground when he visited Bristol. 
Marvelling at the Clifton suspen- 
sion bridge, he tells his readers it 
was designed by -Islamabad 
Brunei that great Victorian 
engineer". 

Strung along 

David Steel would have been in 
even bigger trouble with David 
Owen — and still better odour 
with Liberal activists — if the 
following intelligence had got out. 
Alongside the names of Dennis 
Skinner and Tam Dalyell. the 
programme for Saturday's CND- 
sponsored peace concert at the 
Royal Festival Hall listed Steel as 
an official well-wisher. Steel's 
office protested yesterday that he 
had received a letter from Mu- 
sicians Against Nuclear Arms and 
had not been aware of CND's 
involvement. 

Smoker’s friend 

The custodians of our health have 
ambivalent standards. Last week 
the annual conference of local 
dental committees suspended 
standing orders to cancel a debate 
on banning the sale of so-called 
“smokeless" tobacco. A short 
while later, a resolution calling on 
the British Dental Guild (an 
investment trust controlled by the 
BDA) voted down a resolution 
that the guild should not invest in 
companies manufacturing tobacco 
or substances likely to cause tooth 
decay. There are echoes here of the 
British Medical .Association con- 
ference a few weeks ago which 
voted for a curtailment of alcohol 
advertisements while at the same 
time turning a blind eye to the 
activities of its own wine club. •

At least someone is benefiting 
from the Chernobyl disaster. Un- 
scrupulous Lebanese businessmen 
have been buying up consign- 
ments of cheap radioactive meat 
from Eastern Europe and. taking 
advantage of the breakdown of 
government control in Lebanon, 
shipping it home. News of the deal 
has leaked out in Beirut, where 
people are now refusing to eat 
imported meat. Local fishermen, 
their catches suddenly in great 
demand, have doubled their 
prices.

The recent rash of technological 
failures — Chernobyl, the snoot- 
ing down of Korean Flight KL007. 
the Challenger tragedy and the 
explosion of the Titan rocket — 
carry a warning for all mankind: it 
is in constant danger of an 
accidental nuclear war. 

According lo figures published 
by the Pentagon in 19$0 (lhe most 
recent available!, there had been 
33 serious accidents involving 
American nuclear weapons. So- 
viet nuclear arms have been 
involved in at least 10 major 
mishaps. Fortunately, none of 
these accidents ended in a nuclear 
explosion, but how much longer 
will our luck hold? 

To be fair, the superpowers 
have introduced measures to re- 
duce the possibility of nuclear war. 
For example, elaborate procedures 
have been created for the launch- 
ing of nuclear weapons. Normally, 
two or more individuals must 
perform parallel actions when 
giving the order to fire nuclear 
weapons — as well as actually to 
launch them. Most such weapons 
are equipped with Permissive 
Action Links (Pals) which require 
a secret coded signal to be inserted 
before firing. Devices built into 
weapons ensure that any attempt 
to bypass Pals will disarm them. 

Furthermore, a number of mea- 
sures have been negotiated by the 
superpowers to reduce the risks of 
nuclear war. by accident or mis- 
calculation. These include: 

Q The hotline, a direct commu- 
nications link between Moscow 
and Washington, established in 
1 963 and modernized several 
times since. In 1971. forexampje. 
two satellite communications cir- 
cuits between the US and USSR 
were set up and in 1984 improve- 
ments were made allowing for the 
almost instant transmission of 
text and graphics.

Avoiding 
an accidental 
holocaust

mem. signed in 1971. whereby the 
superpowers agreed to notify each 
other immediately of any acciden- 
tal or unauthorized incident 
involving the possible detonation 
of a nuclear weapon which could 
lead to the outbreak of war. 

• The Agreement on the Prev- 
ention of Nuclear War — a more 
important document signed in 
1973 — stipulating that if, at any 
time, the risk of a nuclear conflict 
arises, the US and 1>SSR will 
immediately make every effort to 
avoid iL (In 1977 Britain and the 
USSR signed an agreement on the 
prevention of accidental nuclear 
war.) 

But., however well-intentioned, 
these agreements don't go tor 
enough: the hotline, for example, 
was used during the 1967 and 
1973 Middle East wars, but it is 
doubtful whether it would be of 
much use in crises directly involv- 
ing the US and USSR, where 
events would be likely to escalate 
so rapidly that, even given the wUl 
on either side, there would simply 
not be the time to use iL The same 
applies in the case of an accidental 
launch. 

Intercontinental ballistic mis- 
siles (ICBMs) can travel 6,000 
miles in 30 minutes: intermediate- 


range missiles can reach their 
targets in less than 10 minutes and 
missile launch times are a mere 
few seconds. Minor malfunctions 
of early-warning, command and 
control systems often occur in the 
US. and similar incidents must 
occur in the USSR. 

In 1979, a practice tape was 
inadvertently fed into a computer 
at the North American Aerospace 
Defense Command (Noradl The 
system indicated that the US was 
under attack by Soviet submarine- 
launched ballistic missiles and 
ICBMs. The error was detected 
within 10 minutes, but not before 
American B-52 strategic bombers 
were prepared for take-off and 
ICBM launch procedures begun. 
There was no time to use the 
hotline, even if President Carter 
had wanted to do so. 

Recognition of the need to 
improve crisis control has led two 
American senators — Sam Nunn 
and John Warner — to propose 
the establishment of risk-reduc- 
tion centres in Washington and 
Moscow. These would exchange 
information about military opera- 
tions and allow discussion of 
nuclear policies. This would be a 
step in the right direction but, 
again, it does not go tor enough. 


Each crisis control centre 
should be staffed by Naio and 
Warsaw Pact officers who would 
haw access to the information 
generated by surveillance systems 
of both sides. The centres should 
facilitate consultation when 
events occur that could trigger a 
nucrear war. they should also be 
prepared to put into operation 
pre-planned methods of dealing 
with the unauthorized launch of 
nuclear, weapons. The centres 
should also be able to deal with 
nuclear terrorism. 

Other measures could include 
an agreement not to test and 
develop weapons for the destruc- 
tion of early-warning and commu- 
nications systems, as well as more 
systematic simulations of crises so 
as to train military and political 
leaders. There should be no pre- 
delegation of authority to use 
nuclear weapons. 

This would prevent, for exam- 
ple. the unauthorized firing of 
submarine-launched ballistic misr 
siles. At the moment, two people 
{the radio operator and the cap- 
tain) on board American nuclear 
submarines — and probably So- 
viet craft as well - could launch 
the submarine's ballistic missiles, 
sufficient to obliterate every major 
city in the US and USSR. 

Of course, the best way to 
reduce the risk of nuclear war is to 
halt the arms race and reduce the 
number of nuclear weapons. Fail- 
ing this, the establishment of 
effective crisis control centres is 
an obvious way to reduce the risk. 
But if the superpowers do not even 
have the political will to achieve 
this objective, the outlook is 
gloomy.

I think I have found a story which 
symbolizes to perfection both the 
condition of this country and the 
reason for iL A small but im- 
portant union recently had an 
election for chairman: the holder 
of the office stood again, but was 
decisively beaten by the other 
candidate. (The new chairman is 
said to be much further to the left, 
but that is not what this tale turns 
upon.) 

After his victory, his jubilant 
supporters expressed admiration 
for him. and it is the terms they 
used in expressing it that make my 
poinL First they applauded him 
for never having been promoted: 
he had remained throughout his 
working career in the same lowly 
grade. “That means", said one of 
his followers, “that he never sold 
out to managemenL" He also, it 
seems, scored bonus points for 
leaving school at 1 5, but this is not 
some septuagenarian remember- 
ing the Depression between the 
ware; he is in his early forties. 
Furthermore, his style of living 
was contrasted favourably with 
that of the man he had defeated: 
the loser, it was said, “had become 
over-fond of restaurant meals", 
whereas the victor “stuck to pints 
and meat' pies". Still worse, his 
ousted predecessor was married to 
a woman in the higher ranks' of 
their profession: she could even be 
described as a member of manage- 
menL .And finally comes the item 
which, it seems, may have settled 
the election: at the union's annual 
conference last year the new 
champion had “won the hearts of 
delegates by declining a taxi to his 
hotel during a downpour". No 
wonder one of his supporters 
summed up expectations of the 
new regime by saying “It's a return 
to grassroots; John is one of the 
lads”. 

No doubt: but is that. I ask 
myself, quite enough? In 1986, a 
man is elected to high union office 
by people who are proud to reveal 
that he is uneducated except at 
elementary level, that he was not 
considered suitable for advance- 
ment in his profession (or that if 
he was, he refused it), that he did 
not commit the grave solecism of 
marrying above himself, that he 
prefers bad food to good, and that 
he would rather get wet than ride 
in a taxi. ' 

1 have repeatedly said that the 
onjy real power this country's 
union leaders have is rite power to 
keep their members poor. But I 
would not like it to be thought that 
by “poor" I refer only to their 
wages. Poverty takes many forms, 
and I am by no means certain that 
a low income is the worst of them: 
there is poverty of the mind, of the 
spiriL of life, of surroundings, of 
desires, of needs, of expectations, 
and perhaps these impoverish- 
ments define the poor even more 
exactly than their pay packets. 
For. after alL there are millions 
who suffer from these limitations 
while having very satisfactorily 
plump pay packets. 

Throughout lhe past 150 years

Who now is 
grinding down 
the poor? 



or so there has been, among all the 
philanthropic and humanitarian 
reform movements, a strain offer- 
seeing thinkers who have realized 
this truth and striven to act on iL 
Shaw was one of the most notable 
of them: in our day Arnold Wesker 
has carried on the tradition (why 
do you think he called one of His 
plays Chips with Everything, and 
another I'm Talking about Jeru- 
salem 1 ?). What such people saw, 
and see, is that the poor, even 
while they suffer from their ma- 
terial poverty, ding fiercely to 
their other impoverishments. 
There are even people who 
encourage them to do so. and 
applaud their unwillingness to 
rise, however slightly, in the 
world: Dennis Skinner, who is 
boasted that he doesn't possess a 
passport, probably believes that 
Costa Brava is the Spanish for 
Sodom and Gomorrah and that 
the Midlands car workers who 
spend their holidays there are 


traitors to the working class for 
that reason alone. 

And a newly elected union 
leader is praised for attitudes and 
qualities that the real reformers, 
the true friends of the poor, strove 
to remove because they knew that 
these were the ultimate barriers 
across the poor's road out of the 
real poverty trap. (Shaw said he 
hated the poor, by which he meant 
their contentment with their lot). 

h has long been said, in 
reference to the pitifully low 
salaries most of this country's 
union leaders receive, that “if you 
pay peanuts, you get monkeys". 
Most of our union leaders are 
honest and decent men. But along 
with the honesty and decency goes 
a desperate and tragic lack of 
vision and understanding, which 
more often than not issues in a 
terrified reluctance to encourage 
in their members any yearnings 
beyond monetary - ones — and, 
more often than nou even the 


monetary ones are frowned upon 
as unbecoming a member of the 
working classes if other members 
are earning less. 

American trade unionism is far 
weaker than ours. Yet in the 
United States the leader o£ say., 
the United Automobile Workers 
receives a salary, and working 
conditions, that would be the envy 
of a British cabinet minister. Well, 
of course, say those who ap- 
plauded the union leader 1 started 
with, these false general secretaries 
have sold out to the bosses. So 
indeed they have; but in doing so, 
it has to be said, they have 
negotiated for their members 
wages (in real terms) some two 
and a half times those of their 
British equivalents. When will the 
members of the TGWU insist that 
their general secretary sells out to 
the bosses on similar terms? 

That last question, it seems to 
me, is the really crucial one. When 
will the working classes of this 
country stop allowing themselves 
to be persuaded by their union 
leaders and the Labour Party that 
it is a matter for outrage and the 
downing of tools if thrboss has a 
bigger Daimler every year, even if 
they have: a bigger Ford? When 
will somebody teach them that, on 
even the- crudest tests of self- 
interest, it is better to work for a 
firm which makes profits than one 
which does not? And above all. 
when will they understand that 
they have ' not betrayed their 
origins — or, if they have, the 
origins deserved to be betrayed, 
and not only betrayed but killed 
and buried — by raising their eyes 
from the trough to those areas of 
life which cannot be measured in 
terms of cadi, but which con- 
stitute the reason for living? 

When? Not, to be sure, while the 
Labour Party is led by men. like 
Michael Foot and Neil Kinnock. 
nor while the TUC is represented 
by men like Nonnan Willis, nor 
while Lhe individuals who run 
most of the unions derive their 
strength and their support from 
failing to qualify for promotion, 
refusing to take a taxi when, ii.is 
raining, eatiig and drinking rub- 
bish in a pub instead of food in a 
restaurant. ' avoiding marriage

in July 1984 Colette Dupont was 
injured in a raid on the post office 
where she worked. A year later it 
was raided again. She could not 
face going back to work, but 
because she had not been phys- 
ically injured this time (jus* 
scared), she was ineligible for 
compensation. 

When she came to give evidence 
things got. if anything, worse. No 
one had explained court proce- 
dures: she had to give her address 
in open court, with the gallery full 
of friends of the accused. Then, 
perfect!)' properly, given the ad- 
versarial nature of English legal 
proceedings, she was subjected to 
a cross examination which left her 
feeling guilty herself. 

Research conducted for the 
recent documentary film I'icums 
(Central Television) brought lo 
light a succession of cases like Mrs 
Dupont's in which the victims of 
crime felt that they had been 
treated as mere accessories to the 
grand processes of justice. To 
check that our cases were not 
exceptional, wc- sent out a ques- 
tionnaire to all police forces, 
magistrate* courts and Crown 
Courts in England and Wales to 
find out how the police and the 
courts deal with victims of enrae. 
We received replies from 80 per 
cenl of police forces, only 43 per- 
cent of magistrates courts, and 


Wanted: compassion 
for the victims 


only 12 of 91 Crown Courts. 

The results of our survey suggest 
big differences between police and 
courts. Most police forces thought 
that victims needed better facil- 
ities and all welcomed victim 
support schemes, although how 
far these intentions were reflected 
in practice was not dear. Only 20 
per cent of forces had officers 
trained to handle victims and only 
33 per cent had information 
explaining to victims their rights 
and how to claim compensation. 
Many forces recognized that it was 
vital" to tell victims what was 
happening with their cases, but 
less than half managed to let them 
know when a trial vtas on. 

Where victim support schemes 
were in operation, the question of 
referral was often left to the man 
on the beaL and a common 
assumption was that only the 
elderly need help. This, combined 
with a lack of financial support for 
such schemes, meant that only one 
m five of all burglary victims saw 
someone from victim support. 

In court, things get worse. 


Facilities for victims are poor, half 
the courts had no refreshment 
facilities, few had creches and only 
just over half had any interview- 
ing areas. One clerk to the justices 
gave “under the beech tree" in 
reply to the question of where 
sensitive legal interviews might be 
held. Only one of the 264 
magistrates' courts that replied to 
our questionnaire had a separate 
waiting area for victims of crime; 
only nine had rooms set aside for 
prosecution witnesses or victims. 
No court had separate refresh- 
ment facilities. Magistrates ac- 
cepted that it was tor from ideal to 
mix offenders and victims because 
of the possibility of intimidation, 
but money was short. 

In the courtroom, too. the 
victim almost always has to sit in 
the public gallery, quite possibly 
with the defendant's family. Only 
14 per cem of courts would allow 
the victim to sit in the main pan of 
the court. 

Many courts were perversely 
worried by the idea of better 
facilities for witnesses. Nearly a 


third . believed, rather strangely, 
that it would be unfair to provide 
better facilities. Eight per cent 
preferred to talk of alleged vic- 
tims. or “victims", or suggested 
that they were probably offenders 
and therefore did not deserve 
much hejp. 

But none of ibis accounts for the 
lack of concern shown to victims 
by the courts. Our survey showed 
that only one court in six would 
know for sure if a victim was 
present, and more than three- 
quarters said that it would not be 
possible for the court to have 
someone look out for them. The 
accused, rightly, has his lawyers to 
explain what is going on. The 
victim has no one. 

The courts did comply with 
statutory obligations. All of them 
said they would consider making 
compensation payments. But only 
12 per xent keep the victims 
informed about the progress of 
payments, even on request. A 
quarter of the courts keep any 
money they receive for more than 
a month before passing it on. 

The overall conclusion is that 
the victims of crime become 
victims all over again when they 
become involved in the legal 
process.

Britain’s new 
pay problem 


..In the bad old day s there was a pay 
problem which caused inflation, 
over-priced output and unemploy- 
ment It arose because unions 

exploited over-full employment. 

using their strength to bludgeon 
employers into paving more tnan 
productivity justified. The prin- 
cipal stimulus was in the public 
sector. To provide pav nses. 
ministers would happily dtp into 
the public purse, setting an exam- 
ple to the private sector. They then 
tried to deal with the inflationary 
consequences by unworkable pay 
controls. 

In the good new ctays, with 
inflation almost overcome, there 
is a different pay problem. This 
lime its roots are in the private 
sector, and the culprits 3re 
managements with high companv 
profits who pay themselves and 
their workers so much more that 
the government is seriously wor- 
ried. With inflation down to just 
under 3 per cenL average pay is up 
bv 7.5 per cent. 

* A high wage economy reward- 
ing greater productivity must be a 
desirable aim. promoting better 
living standards for all. Bui if 
management pays more than 
productivity warrants, the result 
will be excessive purchasing 

power, higher imports, higher 
prices and felling competitiveness 
abroad— unless the government 
acts to prevent this. 

The Chancellor has made it 
dear that he thinks private in- 
dustry is letting down the market 
concept by paying too much, and 
that he will, if necessary respond 
by raising, or not lowering, in- 
terest rates. This will prevent 
higher pay from generating infla- 
tion. but dearer money will make 
the unemployment problem even 
harder to solve. 

But the government has a 
second complaint against em- 
ployers: they pay too much to 
existing workers instead of taking 
on new people and reducing 
unemployment How justified are 
these charges? 

They are made against a back- 
ground of gloomy employment 
projections. The report of the 
industrialists' Occupations Study 
Group (described in The Times 
last Friday) finds that by 1990 the 
production industries (producing 
more with fewer workers) are 
likely to lose more jobs than the 
service industries will gain; that 
there will be a massive shift to 
part-time working by women and 
that by the end of the decade 
unemployment is likely to be 
higher. - - 

If the report is right growth will 
make little difference to - this 
prospect. Nor will Labour’s spend- 
ing plans — which makes Roy 
Hanersley's promise of one mil- 
lion- more jobs in Labour's first 
two years look like political dis- 
honesty. Nor does it seem that 
excessive wages to those in work 
are the main factor depriving 
others of new jobs; the real 
inhibition is employers' caution 
about expansion and their pref- 
erence for short-term cost-cutting 
and profits within their existing 
activities. 

Moreover, if they can afford to 


□av more without pricing them- 
selves out of the market why (in 
strict economic terms) should they 
not pay more? Their business is 
commerce, not social action. Id 
w hat sense are wage increases "too 
high"? Is the chief complaint that 
the total 7.5 per cent increase in 
average pay releases too much 
demand, or that the money should 
be distributed differently? IL say. a 
third or half of this money went to 
new jobs would it have the same 
inflation potential? 

Since spreading the money over 
more workers would redoes av- 
erage pay. it presumably would 
noL Likewise, it does not follow 
that if individual employers can 
afford to pay more today, they will 
not suffer inflationary con- 
sequences tomorrow. It is a diffi- 
cult commercial judgment to 
make (which is why pay norms are 
ridiculous). 

Unemployment is now a social 
rather than an economic problem, 
and industry — for whatever rea- 
sons. and despite the Chancellor's 
strictures — is not disposed to 
help the government out by 
paving for more jobs, or expand- 
ing into the industrially derelict 
areas of the North. 

In other words, the responsibil- 
ity is political and only the 
government can deal with iL 
There is a fashionable theory 
among some of its supporters that 
it should stick rigidly to market 
principles, refuse to intervene, let 
the north make op its earnings 
through tourism, and allow the 
South to act as a magnet for new 
industries and jobs. 

But the market theory, like any 
other, can be reduced to absurdity 
by taking it to extremes. The idea 
th 2 i the bleak beauty of the North 
(climate notwithstanding) and the 
rugged relics of industrial history 
are enough to sustain the region 
with growing tourism is as inher- 
ently unconvincing as the demand 
that the South East should be a 
cure-all magnet and that we 
should if necessary pave over the 
Green Bek. These are not answers 
to the problem of the long-term 
unemployed or to closely-linked 
regional unemployment 

Labour's inflationary spending, 
public ownership and lax sub- 
sidies are no use either. Over the 
country as a whole, removing the 
tax discrimination against women 
with families who stay at home 
could be a major corrective. But 
above all it is a regional problem 
for the government, and it may be 
soluble only if the government 
acts to plant new industries in the 
foresak err areas — not to .manage 
or to own 'them but to provide the 
impetus for a new start. 

Why should it not experiment 
in a pilot area of the North East by 
co-operating with private indusnry 
' to found new- factories, providing 
debenture money, joining with 
private industry and the City to 
produce equity capital and selling 
its interest once the enterprise was 
afloat? it may not be pure market 
orthodoxy but neither is rebuking 
industry for not helping the gov- 
ernment to solve a social problem. 
What is the alternative? It cannot 
be to do nothing?

If you ask me, 
it’s all, well... 


I would like to propose an 
honorary, knighthood, or some 
title never previously offered, for 
the Duke of Edinburgh for ser- 
vices to commonsense. In an 
interview with Woman's Own he 
was asked what solutions' he 
would put forward to help grapple 
with world problons. His reply, if 
he was correctly quoted, was: 
“Search me. I don’t know." 

Why is it that when people are 
asked a question in interviews (or 
indeed in pubs) they are always 
expected to have a firm opinion? 
Most of us have no very firm 
opinion on mosuhings. but we are 
always expected to behave as if we 
have an attitude on everything, 
and a solution, lo every problem. 
When contestems on Mastermind 
go blank and say “Pass", they 
always looked ashamed. I don't 
know why. Search me. 

When I read the Duke of 
Edinburgh's sterling words. I was 
whisked back 10 or 1 5 years to the 
time when I worked at Punch in a 
large room which was normally 
used for games of indoor cricket 
by me. David Taylor and Alan 
Coren. who once dislodged a large 
pile of magazines with a fierce 
cover drive and was heard to say: 
“Hello — some trouble among the 
Spectators’'. On a wall was pinned 
a letter cut out from The Times by 
Mrs T.S. Eliot, which went more 
or less as follows. 

“Sir. T.S. Eliot was once rec- 
ognized in a taxi by the driver, 
who told him that his previous 
most, famous passenger had been 
Lord Bertrand Russell, i knew he 
was a famous thinker*, said the 
driver, 'so I said to him. Well, 
Lord Russell, what's it all about 
then? And do you know, he 
couldn't tell me'" 

Bertrand Russell and the Duke 
of Edinburgh. A great little team. I 
myself once had an-opportunity to 
play the same game, but I chick-' 
ened ouLlt was on the only 
occasion 1 have taken pan in Any 
Questions?, the Radio 4 pro- 
yamme whose participants have 
:ixed views on everything from 
natural childbirth to Hong Kong. 
This- particular edition went out 
from a large hall in Leamington- 
Spa. in front of a large audience 
who also seemed to have-fixed 
views on everything. 


As the programme wore on, it 
became dear that I was the only 
person present who not only had 
no very firm views on any of the 
questions, but also had no interest 
in any of them. What I should 
have said to all of them was. . "I 
don't know and 1 don't particu- 
larly care.” or as the Royal Family 
say. “Search me", but I didn't 
have the courage. The one ques- 
tion I still remember was whether 
the government should give an- 
other £10 million • to Mr de 
Lorean's car factory in Northern 
Ireland. 

"No." I said, when it came to 
my turn. “Anything that en- 
courages the Northern Irish to 
drive cars should be frowned 
upon. I believe they have the 
worst road accident figures in 
Britain. In torn, the last time 1 was 
in Belfast, the evening paper had'a 
lead story headed “This Carnage 
Must Stop Now* — and it wasn’t 
sectarian battles they were talking 
about, it was death on the roadsof 
Ulster. I certainly wouldn’t allow 
the Northern Irish to have more 
money for more cars." 

Quite neat I thought, but it got 
no reaction at all. I hadn't come up 
with a fixed, view, you see. Or a 
ready solution. It is much betteri 
all in all, to devote yourtime to in- 
door crickeL During one of those

THE GRANTS SHAMBLES 


The very fact that yesterday an 
^-announcement about the sup- 
-_port of students in higher 
£ education could be made by 
the Secretary of State for Social 
-*• Semces is evidence of how 
^■twisted public policy in this 
C&rea has become. Mr Fowler’s 
retreat on bousing benefit for 
. x students only touches the sur- 
. face of what ought to be 
J -regarded as a scandal — the 
" dependence on social security 
^oflarge numbers ofundograd- 
-\uates who are also receiving 
-. education grants. For what 
‘.“follows from that is a kind of 
^ j pauperization. They acquire 
: an attitude of dependence and 
probably also a contempt for 
~jhe state. Energetic and aspir- 
r.fiiig young adults become cli- 
fcnts of a system that ought to 
^ cater only for -those without 
..vmeans or opportunity of get- 
-.ting them. 

Paying for the living costs 
- fend fees • of students was 
- 7 -always a small part in the 
arithmetic of higher education, 
rbarely considered by Lord 
Robbins and tucked away in 
.^footnotes since. Central gov- 
_i era mem has left most of the 
-‘decisions and a good deal of 
-discretion to local authorities. 

. Naturally they differ in the 
generosity with which they pay 
± -for courses. Some worthwhile 
..vocational and training 
t. -courses are deemed eligible 
V-only for “discretionary” 
-awards. The scheme is riddled 
Vrwitb anomalies. 

Adult , students are granted 
i7 iwards, - the size of which 
—depends crucially on the 
..willingness of their parents to 
“pay for their support Grants 
rsaid by the education authori- 
rties to cover a calendar year 
7 --are simultaneously said by 
,;sodal security officials, using 
' standard criteria of need and 
. income, to be inadequate, 
f - During the past five years 
-the Government has consis- 


tently cut the value of mainte- 
nance grants. It tried, amid 
controversy, to extend means 
testing to the payment of 
tuition fees. The former Sec- 
retary of State, Sir Keith 
Joseph, tried to reform , the 
whole crumbling system with 
plans for replacing grants with 
loans. But he consistently 
foiled to persuade the cabinet. 

In this pre-election period 
- Mr Baker’s easiest option is to 
attempt to stall die issue. His ' 
department is beginning a 
review whose progress could 
easily be advanced or delayed 
according to political de- 
mands. He simply needs to 
minimize short, run dis- 
contents and defer the difficult 
decisions until later, with the 
additional hope that reducing 
student numbers will ease the 
pressures. 

But perhaps Mr Baker has 
more substance. Perhaps he 
realises that higher education 
deserves more than expedient 
policy-making. Perhaps he will 
be persuaded that a system of 
maintenance awards, in place 
more or less unchanged for a 
quarter of a century, -now 
deserves a real review. He 
might then return, belter 
armed than bis predecessor, to 
the loans debate. 

The case for loans replacing 
cash grants to students is not 
ideological, it is pragmatic. 
Under Mr Baker’s direction, 
this basic fact should be better 
perceived. Loans are not a 
recipe for short-run -econo- 
mies. They could enhance 
rather than diminish access to 
higher education for students 
from lower-income families. 
The principled argument for a 
student loans fund for invest- 
ment in education stands to be 
made on long-run criteria, on 
the health of universities and 
colleges and on the expansion 
of opportunity it might pro- 
vide. 


THE MINING MINORITY 


Tbe-Government’spromise of 
-new legislation, if necessary, to 
guarantee rights of representa- 
tion and consultation to; the 

- Union Of Democratic Miners 
is welcome. In the long and 
■often dangerous struggle be- 
tween the brute force of the 

.Scargfll-donunated National 
rdJnion ofMineworkersand the.' 
'lights of both management 
'and individual trade union 
members, the resistance of the 
^Nottinghamshire and Derby- 
shire miners (who now largely 
j:onstitute.the -UDM) was era- - 
rial to the factory of democ- 
racy and thelaw. Now that it is 
; all oven it is only too easy to 
_ forget bow much this victory 
owed to the courage of work- 
ing miners and rank — and — 

’ file members of other unions 
: who refused to be intimidated. 

- Introducing legislation is, 

: however, a last resort, and 
• whether or not it is necessary 
; will depend on the outcome of 
itiie law case by which British 
. Coal is testing, the legal po- 
sition concerning, the TJDWPs 
■ xights of conciliation and 
representation- Also at issue is 
the pensions rule oir which 
British Coal seeks clarifica- 
tion, and the UDM has joined 
in this action, seeking 
interpolation, since they have 
a very direct interest 


During the . year’s stoppage, 
UDM members continued to 
pay Jheir contributions, but 
. NUM strikers did not, which 
means that the pension fund is 
some £60 million short, or 
£120 nullion short if we take 
the employers' contributions 
into account The Board is 
' seeking means by which these 
arrears can be made up. The 
government aow.promises leg- 
islation if the court finds that 
the law as it stands does not 
cover consultation with the 
UDM. 

That is only right The 
emergence of the UDM with 
"some 35,000' members is a 
feet which is not going to be 
reversed, and if dealing with 
two unions creates some prob- 
lems of inconvenience for 
British Coal, the advantages of 
a union whose origin is 
grounded in union responsibil- 
ity is fully understood. Sir Ian 
MacGregor’s presence at the 
UDM*s conference this week 
testifies as much. The high 
court action is proof of BCs 
understa n din g that “the UDM 
has a right to be heard, and so 
is the government’s undertak- 
ing to amend ..the Coal 
Nationalisation Act to em- 
brace that right if it is nec- 
essary to doso. 

Such amendment will not. 


however, deal, with the ques- 
tion of pay for UDM members 
where they are a minority 
■ pocket within a NUM major- 
ity, since pay comes under a 
separate Act It is not that the 
UDM is unrecognized. It is a 
registered union with which 
BC has negotiated a pay 
agreement. But the NUM has 
not accepted that offer, and in 
the particular test case of one 
colliery, Eflistown, which bad 
an NUM majority, the tri- 
bunal found that under the 
existing law the UDM minor- 
ity. could not be paid the 
negotiated UDM pay rise. In 
this particular colliery, there is 
no longer a problem since the 
UDM has since become a 
majority, but the principle 
remains and other UDM pock- 
ets are understandably ag- 
grieved. 

That the government is not 
proposing to amend the law in 
respect of pay . is .also under- 
standable; it would have had 
repercussions in other in- 
dustries and anions than coaL 
But if the High Court, and then 
the House of Lords found 
against the UDM on pay, and 
NUM obduracy held up 1 
indefinitelty the agreed pay 
increases of an UDM minoity, 
it would surely be right for the 
Government to think again.: 


Police view of Oxford students 


A case for loans cannot 
properly be made in the ab- 
stract Much hinges on the 
detail, say, of subsidizing loans 
for students from low income 
families, on repayment peri- 
ods and on whether colleges 
should have freedom to set 
tuition fees at a level which 
accurately reflects cost. 

Different loan schemes al- 
ready exist in West Germany 
and. the United 
States- Variations are possible 
for Britain which could allow 
the Government, quite legiti- 
mately, to introduce differen- 
tial subsidies on tuition costs, 
benefiting students on courses 
which the Government 
considers to be in the national 
interest There is no reason 
why a loans scheme should not 
be part of a mixed economy of 1 
student finance in which I 
scholarships and student 1 
sponsorship have their role. 

Loans have a number of 
advantages. They enfranchise 
the student as a consumer and 
judge of courses. They give 
fiscal recognition to the status 
of 18-year-olds as adults. They 
concentrate the student mind 
bn the world of work. And they 
alter the balance of transfers 
between the tax-paying public 
and a group whose fife-time 
earnings are likely to be 
substantially enhanced by 
their degrees. 

There now exists within the 
Department of Education and 
Science, after several previous 
reviews of student finance, a 
considerable volume of feet 
and international comparison. 
Mr Baker’s new review ought 
to be speedily conducted. The 
least and the best be should 
then do is to publish the 
documentation, organized in 
the shape of specific schemes, 
to let the public see, for the 
first time, what alternatives to 
the present grants shambles do 
exist 


APPROPRIATE PRIVATISATION 


.The privatization programme 
is currently suffering an 
embarrassing- and somewhat 
unnecessary fit of hiccups. 

: Indefinitely postponing the 
flotation of the Royal Ord- 
nance Factories is not vital to 
the programme in terras of 
public perception or public 
finance. But it follows, a pat- 
tern that the Treasury would . 
do well to analyse. 

British Airways has been 
stopped on theTunway. Plans 
to dispose of various parts of 
BL have come to nothing. 
There are question marks over 
the wholesale flotation of wa- 
ter authorities. 

“ All these - except for water 
— are insignificant compared 
to the planned sale of British 
Gas this Autumn. And what- 
ever doubts there may be over 
the sacrifice of competition to 
the investor-appeal of British 
Gas, that piece of privatization 
seems to be on'course, subject 
to the .state of the, _ stock 
market- 

-.Nonetheless, the setbacks' 
threaten the main benefit of. 
privatization: namely, freeing; 
as many enterprises as prac- 
ticable .from the stifling con- 
ditions of die public sector. In 
several cases, the problems 
involve the continuing depen- 
dence of hewfy-pnvapzed 


companies on public policy or 
state orders. Take, for in- 
stance. the ROF. Here the 
implications of the need to 
maintain commercially sur- 
plus* armaments capacity for 
the purposes of national se- 
curity do not seem to have' 
been fully considered.: Are 
such subsidies to be covertly 
allowed for in Ordering and 
pricing (to the detriment of 
competition), or - financed 
' explidty as in the . public 
service obligation payments to 
British Rail? 

The biggest cause of the 
recent setbacks, however, is 
Treasury inflexibility. The 
learning process that cul- 
minated so successfully in the 
sale of British Telecom - with 
re combination of well-honed 
City methods, the unprece- 
dented spread of share owner- 
ship. and the valuable political 
virtue that denationalization 
dearly meant true ownership 
bythe public — hasweddedthe 
■ Treasury to an overwhelming 
preference for privatizing via 
public flotations to a mass of 
. small investors. ' 

\ Not all companies are suited 
to Uus : -treatmenL Lord King, 
the diairman of British Air- 
ways,, always -held that an 
international airline business 
subject to political winds and 


competitive cycles was not to 
be compared with a lucrative 
utility. From the standpoint of 
financial efficiency, enter- 
prises such as the ROF or 
Rolls-Royce, which are risky 
and depend on relatively few 
orders, sit more comfortably 
and securely as divisions of 
larger corporations. 

'The stalemate in selling BL's 
divisions to diminish state 
cash support should turn 
people's attention to the alter- 
native method of creeping 
divestment of the group as a 
whole. Management would 
then have to organize its own 
deals. The proportion of BL 
shares in private hands is SO 
small that the current stock 
market valuation of £1.7 bil- 
lion is wholly artificial, but 
that does give scope for the 
Government to feed shares in 
the loss-making company qui r 
etly to the public. 

Ministers also seem to have 
lost interest in selling state 
enterprises to employees, de- 
spite the successful example of 
National Freight. Vet more 
flexibility is exactly what’s 
needed. A central and popular 
policy should not suffer from 
being forced into a mould 
mainly designed for the likes 
of British Telecom and British 
Gas- 


From ihe Chirf Constable of the 
Thames Valley Police 
Sir, 1 would not normally respond 
to inaccuracies in a newspaper 
article, even in The Times, but a 
Times leader whose thrust is as 
wrong as that of June 16 is a 
different consideration. 

I make no criticism of your 
confusion over police ranks. 
Vicariously you may be correct, 
for I Support the initiative taken 
by my chief superintendent 
responsible for the poticing of 
central and north Oxfordshire 
(which includes Oxford City) in 
his publishing advice to the under- 
graduates about their behaviour in 
public after.their examinations. 

Increasingly in recent years the 
residents, shoppers and tourists in 
the city have been greatly 
inconvenienced by the selfish and 
childish behaviour of some stu- 
dents. The Cautionary advice was 
caring and sound, and rather than 
: bring at Odds with the university 
authorities was included in the 
same envelope as a similar letter 
from their proctors about behav- 
iour within the colleges. 

I am sure most of your readers 
will appreciate that the colleges are 

Architects’ drawings 

From the President of the Royal 
Institute af British Architects 
Sir, T refer to the letter (June 14) 
from Mr Mark Girouard and his 
distinguished colleagues about our 
plans to unite the RIBA Drawings 
Collection milt the library in 
Portland Place. I am -inviting the 
signatories to meet me at the 
RIBA to hear about tire proposals. 

I fee] I should also explain to 
readers the reasons for my 
council's decision. 

The objective is- to bring our 
collections together at 66 Portland 
Place as the core of a national 
centre of architecture: for study, 
research and debate; a stimulating 
environment in which a wide 
variety of activities can com- 
plement one another under a 
single root 

This must be done worthily and 
it will be expensive. But it would 
also be expensive to leave the . 
drawings where they are. The 
accommodation at 21 Penman 
Square is delightful, but there can 
be no certainty at present that it 
will continue to ' be available 
indefinitely or that we could 
acquire the tease of additional 
space ^there. More important, to 

Talking about Ulster 

From Mr Tim Yea. MP for Suffolk 
South (Conservative) 

Sir, In bis letter: of June 10 the 
Unionist MPfor Strangford, John 
D. Taylor, asserts that three 
particular events have flowed 
from the Anglo-Irish Agreement: 
the first that Ulster members of 
Parliament do not communicate 
with Northern Ireland Office min- 
isters or participate in Northern 
Ireland business in Parliament; . 
second that 18 (that is.to say the 
Unionist-controlled) of the 26 
councils in Northern Ireland have 
not held a business meeting since 
November. 1985; and third that it 
appeared likely that the Northern 
Ireland Assembly would shortly 
be closed (as has occurred). 

What he foils to make clear is 
that responsibility for these three 
actions rests firmly with the 
Unionists' leaders. It is upon. their 
shoulders that responsibility for 
refusing to communicate with 
ministers, refusing to transact the * 
proper business of local authori- 
ties and for treating the Northern 
Ireland Assembly simply as a 
forum for protest rather than 
performing the statutory duties 
which Parliament has laid upon ft. 

Gower’s dismissal 

From Mr Ken Dilkes 
.Sir, I note from your front page 
article of today (June 11) on the 
ludicrous removal of David 
Gower from the England cap- 
taincy that Peter May asked Mike 
Catting if he thought that he could 
do the job. just after he had left the 
field at Lords. This seems to beg 
three questions: 

1. Is this delegation of responsibil- 
ity taken to its extreme? Surety it is 
-for May to decide as to wbo is 
capable of captaincy and the only 
question should be the man's 
-willingness. 

2. Who asks Peter May ifhe can do 

his job? < 

3. In view of the ignominious -I 
removal of his last two captains - 
does one presume that his honest { 
answer would be that he cannot? ■ 

Finally may I wish Mike \ 
Galtjug all the luck in the world. < 


but suggest that instead of putting 
on protective clothing to wand off 
the effects of West Indian fast 
bowling be search fbrsome protec- 
tion from a knife in the back from 
. the selectors.

Aparfit knight 

From the Reverend R. S. Beresford 
Sir, H is entirely in Accord with Sir 
Nizri Loring's modesty that his 
Who’s Who entry (letter, June ! 1)

Bruges’ Garter Book idk us that S: 
neel loringe was a Founder Knight 
of the Gaiter and occupied the 
tenth stall on the Prince's side of 
the Chapel. ’ 

Writhe's Gaiter Book agrees but

Cleanup; up

Sir, On my last visit to Israel, for 
an academic conference, I took a 
day off to swim at Asbkelon. It 
was March — too early for Israeli 
swimmers. The only other inhab- 
itants of the beach were three 
Arabs collecting debris from win- 
ter storms. 

Half way through the day they 
stripped stark naked, swam, 
dressed, said their prayers, and 
continued gathering litter — a 
perfect example of the maxim that 
cleanliness is next to godliness.

Threat to future 
ofBirkbeck 

From Lord Fletcher 
Sir. As a Fellow ofBirkbeck and a 
former Governor may I support 
the fears expressed in die House of 
Lords on June 13 that bureau- 
cratic incompetence and muddle 
pose a grotesque threat to the 
closure of Birkbeck. This college 
has for many years been the only 
college in London catering for 
evening students (that is, those 
who work in the day time) seeking 
a university degree. Birkbeck has 
produced over the years a series of 
scholars ranking with those from 
whole-time colleges of the univer- 
sity. 

Why then is it threatened with 
closure? The Government blames 
the University Grants Committee, 
on whose advice the Government 
relies for the funding of univer- 
sities. The UGC cannot escape 
censure for a grotesque error but 
places the blame on the Court of 
the university, who were faced 
with the difficult task of allocating 
diminished funds. 

The basic feels are not in 
dispute. The Government decided 
that for university funding pur- 
poses the cost of educating part- 
time students should be reduced 
from 0.8 per cent of the cost of 
educating a full-time student to 
0.5 per cent. This may be justified 
statistically in the case of colleges 
that cater for both whole-time 
students. and part-time students. 
However, it manifestly works a 
great injustice to Birkbeck, which 
caters wholly for part-time stu- 
dents who pay their fees out of 
their earnings in daytime occupa- 
tions. 

The University of London, in 
making its allocation to its col- 
leges, foils to take account of this 
vital feci and with respect to Lord 
Scarman, the chairman to the 
Court cannot escape criticism. 
The result is that unless this 
muddle is corrected Birkbeck will 
lose 20 per cent of its revenue. It 
will suffer a cut of £2 million out 
of £9 million. It will be unable to 
maintain the high standard which 
has made it so conspicuously 
successful in further education 
and may well have to dose its 
doors. 

Yours faithfully,

Hie hippy convoy 

From Mr M. A. C. Drummond 
Sir, The two priests of Minstead in 
the New Forest have discovered 
much in favour of the hippies 
(June 11). They have chosen : to 
label them as nomads. !, too, 
wandered amongst-, the hippies 
and ’ tried patiently to discover 
what caused them to treat our land 
so badly, to totally disregard our 
laws and customs. Your corres- 
pondents were too simplistic, or 
perhaps commendably too anx- 
ious to see them as a tribe 
wandering from place to place in 
search of pasture or game, as the 
dictionary, or the Bible, sees 
nomads. 

There were indeed a small 
number who wished to be seen in 
this tight and in tune with the 
land. They recognised that their 
vehicles were alien and seemed to 
regret the damage and the resent- 
ment that such a large convoy 
inevitably caused to the com- 
moners of the New Forest and to 
the rural community. These few 
saw that dogs left to roam would 
attack stock and that the less 
discerning would see growing trees 
as fueL These are fee people your 
correspondents described. 

They did not see or experience, 
as I did, when I wandered quietly 
among the battered buses, fee 
other side. Men of violence, 
prepared to overturn anyone, even 
those of their own tribe, who stood 
in their way. They would not let 
priest or commoner, resident or 
displaced visitor stand in die way 
of their witi. If they had a creed, 
feat wash. 

If this sizeable fraction had 
camped hard by feat medieval 
gem, Minstead Church, the priests 
might have found it easier to 
separate the descant from fee 
main tune:

ON THIS DAY 


JUNE 19 1877

WAR CORRESPONDENTS AND 
TURKISH COURTESY 

(FROM OUR SPECIAL 

CORRESPONDENT.) 

VARNA, JUNE 5 
If the 'Darks show as much 
energy in keeping the Russians 
away as they exhibit in shutting 
Correspondents out from their 
army the war wiQ be a long one. 
Their perseverance in the latter 
direction i* most praiseworthy. For 
a period of some five weeks several 
English g entl em en have been en- 
gaged in a sort of Kriegsptel with 
the authorities here. Profound 
courtesy on both sides is the law of 
the game, which is still going cm. 
After many moves Whites succeed- 
ed one after the other in reaching 
high places at Constantinople. 
There they were told, “We can do 
nothing. You must apply in person 
to the Commander-in-Chief at 
Shanda.” It is needless to say there 
was some tittle exercise of ingenu- 
ity and patience over fen next 
series of moves. The Commander- 
in -Chief, who managed to be too xD 
or busy to be seen on the first ten or 
dozen calls, at length became 
visible, but regretted feat his 
orders were absolute. Nobody un- 
provided with a letter of introduc- 
tion from the Grand Vizier at 
Constantinople could be allowed to 
remain in camp. Blacks evidently 
thought feat move as good as mate. 
Whites, however, returned to Con- 
stantinople, and worried Ambassa- 
dors and the Vizier until the much- 
coveted letters were obtained. 
Again the Chief of fee Army was 
on many occasions too ill to see his 
visitors, but at length he conde- 
scended to receive fee letters and 
keep them- Not a fine of permis- 
sion to remain was, however, given 
in return, and the position of every 
English Correspondent in the field 
but one is that he is at large in a 
vast camp wife nothing to show to 
any fanatical subaltern wbo may 
interrogate him. Such a position is 
not pleasant at a time like this. The 
gentleman whose case is exception- 
al has still his Vizierial letter and 
intends to keep it, until he gets 
something in return. 

The coolness of Englishmen is 
well known, but for a real calm 
disr eg ard for personal peril 1 can 
recommend a Turk. The other <foy 
at a station here a quantity of 
gunpowder was being packed in 
trucks for Shumla- One of the tin 
got damaged aim» 

wiseacre sent for s brazier to repair 
it where it stood. The man came 
wife his fire and soldering iron, 
mounted the truck, and was fol- 
' lowed by a score of soldiers amadous 
to see the fun. He was just about to 
commence operations when the 
stationmaster jumped up after 
him, and, unceremoniously pitch- 
ing him and his hot iron to to fee 
platform, told the soldiers that 
they might kill themselves if they 
liked, but feat he was responsible 
for fee station, and nobody should 
blow that up while he was there. 

I hope my new friends will not be 
angry with me when I say that 
good-natured stupidity seems to 
my mind the chief failing of fee 
common people here. A politeness 
which , is by no means' skin deep 
must be bracketed wife a natural 
kindliness and placed on fee credit 
side of the account The innumera- 
ble drinking fountains for animals 
— old, well-worn stone and marble 
structures, which show where we 
got the notion from —the tameness 
of every bird and beast (sparrows 
simply step politely on one ride to 
allow the pedestrian to pass) the 
sight of old and young folk 
constantly feeding our humbler 
fellow-creatures, all go to prove 
that the Turkish heart is not a hard 
or rough one. I rode out to 
Monastery Point yesterday to have 
a dip in the sea, and in fee eaves of 
the old walls there counted over a 
hundred swallows nests, and saw 
the graceful tittle tenants running 
about tike the tame pigeons in 
Guildhall yard, picking op crumbs 
thrown to them by the swarthy old 
Turk who held our horses. The 
excessive politeness here over- 
comes all opposition. Even a great 
Pasha kicks a Giaour Correspon- 
dent downstairs wife Infinite grace 


Sterling qualities Case to answer 


From Mr W. Grey 
Sir, The Prune Minister's — unlike 
many of her colleagues’ — rejec- 
tion of full UK membership of the 
EMS (European Monetary Sys- 
tem) on the ground that “One is 
denied the option of taking the 
strain on the exchange rate" in the 1 
event of “speculation against 
sterling** (report, June 11) raised 
more questions than it answered. 

What is so special about sterling 
that disqualifies it from the disci- 
pline (or rather self-discipline) 
accepted by others without de- 
mur? What distinguishes currency 
movements spurred by specula- 
tion from those caused by more 
fundamental factors, and where, 
incidentally, do speculators hide 
out between times? 

Above all. what is to prevent 
one, the Iron Lady included, when 
given an inch from taking an ell, 
with ail the damaging con- 
sequences such benign neglect has 
been known to produce? 

On the eve of Britain ’^assump- 
tion of the EEC presidency, what 
^assertion _ of the doctrine of 
splendid isolation, moreover, 
could have been less diplomatic or 
more dispiriting? 

Yours fetthfully.

From Mr N. K. J. Witney 
Sir. Mr Rob Hayward, MP, won- 
ders iThe Times. June 1 \) why a

Fowler’s field day 

From Mr U. G. Alien 
Sir, I have always tried to follow 
the sort of advice given in the style 
book of The Economist (Mr 
Levin’s article. June 13). But h 
causes problems. My professional 
colleagues tend to believe that I 
don't understand the subject prop- 
erly if 1 avoid the usual jargon. On 
the other hand, laymen feel flat if 
they can understand my message 
it cannot be very important. 

The optimum strategy career- 
wise must undoubtedly be the 
cultivation of a degree of in- 
comprehensibility.

On the record

Sir, Professor David Short is 
reported (June 9) as being con-

Protection Act I see this as no bad 
thing at all. For most of us the 
discipline of having our records 
computerised will at least ensure 
that they are structured and 
legible. 

If. in addition, we are dis- 
couraged from making comments 
that either we cannot substantiate 
clinically or cannot support 
personally then the accuracy and 
relevance of our records can only 
improve.

There’s no need to pinch yourself. Until August 31st you 
really can buy a Peugeot 309 GL 1.3, at list price of £6,360, 
with 0% APR finance over 12 months. 

Which means there’ll never be a better time to experi- ' 
ence for yourself the qualities that have made the British-built 
309 such a huge success. Qualities like its superb. suspension. 
Its intelligent, spacious design. And its remarkable fuel 
economy (on an RAC observed test a 309 SR travelled no less 
than 698 -miles on a single tank of fuel). But, as you can see, 
the 0% APR deal is only one of many low finance packages 
available on the 309 GL 1.3. And there are further offers 
across the rest of the 309 range. To find out more, call in at 
your nearest Peugeot Talbot dealer. 

He’ll show you how much Peugeot has. to offer. And also, 
of course, how little.

IS 


A SPECIAL REPORT ON 
THE CHANNEL ISLANDS 


THE TTYTRS ' 

(( FOCI B ) 


June 19, 1986 

By Peter Strafford 


A haven 
for finance 
and fun 


Pictures: John Voo* 


For many people the image of 
the Channel Islands is that ofa 
holiday resort, small and re- 
mote. but not too remote, and 
with a strong line in tomatoes 
and new potatoes. All this is 
true, but it is only part of a 
mote complex and more inter- 
esting picture, which is en- 
hanced by the far-reaching 
changes that have taken place 
on the islands during the past 
20 years or so. 

During that time Jersey and 
Guernsey have become im- 
portant financial centres, deal- 
ing essentially in offshore 
business. In the narrow back 
streets of St Peter Port, the 
capital of Guernsey, for in- 
stance. boards and brass plates 
proclaim the presence of 
banks, insurance companies 
and accountancy firms of 
international standing. 

Even on Sark, where cars 
are banned and the island is 
headed by a Seigneur, some of 
the people silting in a horse- 
drawn carriage making its way 
quietly along a country road 
turn out to be directors of a 
company that has been set up 
on the island for tax advan- 
tages. They have come from 
London for a board meeting, 
perhaps in someone's house, 
where they will be joined by 
members of the island com- 
munity who have also been 
made directors. 

The islands today are a 
remarkable combination of 
constitutional arrangements 
that go back to feudal tunes 
and late 20th-century finance. 
One has led to the other. It is 
the constitutional set-up that 
has . enabled the islands to 
maintain their own taxation 
systems, independent of any- 
thing that may be decreed by 
the Chancellor of the Exche- 
quer at Westminster; and that 
combined with their political 
stability and their nearness to 
London, has been their attrac- 
tion for financiers from round 
the world. 

At the same time, with their 


natural beauty and unusual 
situation, they remain appeal- 
ing holiday centres, though 
they are having to make 
adjustments for changing 
tastes. They continue to have 
natural produce for sale — new 
potatoes in Jersey, for exam- 
ple, and tomatoes and flowers 
in Guernsey — as well as some 
light industry, which Guern- 
sey in particular has been 
encouraging successfully. 

They have their differences 
— Jersey the more go-getting, 
while Guernsey prides itself 
on being less commercial — 
and there is a strong sense of 
rivalry between the two largest 
islands, each of which likes to 
behave as if the other did not 
exist. But their similarities are 
much greater than their 
differences. 

Throughout the islands is a 
common culture based on 
French and the old Norman- 
French pmois, now in decline. 

Natural beauty and 
unusual situation 

and a determination to run 
their own affairs. 

The people of the islands 
have proved remarkably 
adept at retaining a consider- 
able degree of independence 
over the years, in spite of, or 
perhaps because of their small 
size. They were for some time 
off-shore islands of the Duchy 
of Normandy, and their link 
with the English Crown began 
with the Norman Conquest of 
1066, when William the Con- 
queror became King of En- 
gland and Duke of Normandy. 

When King John lost the 
rest of Normandy to the 
French at the beginning of the 
13th century, the islanders 
had to decide whether they 
wanted to owe allegiance to 
the French or the English 
Crown. They opted for the 
King of England and a .major 



Seaside scene and a smiling face: The picturesque harbour of St Peter Port in Guernsey and fisherman Joseph Bichard with his catch of spider crabs 


consideration was obviously 
that he was the further away of 
the two and less likely to be 
able to exercise close control. 
So it proved. 

In succeeding centuries tbe 
islands were in the from line 
in the wars between England 
and France, as their heavily 
fortified castles show. They 
developed a profound loyalty 
to tbe English cause and. 
despite a culture based on the 
French language, have never 
shown any desire to become 
part of France. 

But they have always insist- 
ed — now as much as ever — 
that their link is solely with 
the Crown. They are subjects 
of tbe Queen, just as the 
English, Welsh and Scots are, 
but they are not part of the 
United Kingdom, and within 
certain constraints are free to 
order their own affairs without 
interference from the British 
Government. 

Foreign affairs and defence 
are a British responsibility, 
and Westminster can legislate 
for the islands, which come 
under the Home Office. But in 
practice the islands have a 
considerable degree of inde- 
pendence; and they have even 
achieved a most satisfactory 
relationship with tbe Europe- 
an Community, by which they 
are part in it and part out 

The result is that real power 
continues to be wielded by the

considerably more benign 
than that of the continental 
countries - and had to make a 
fresh start when it was over. 

Both Jersey and Guernsey 
already had flourishing agri- 
cultures, though with marked 
differences, whereas Jersey 
broadly slopes down from 
north to south and can grow 
its crops in the open, Guern- 
sey slopes the other way and 
found that its tomatoes had to 
be grown in greenhouses. Both 
found a ready market in tbe 
UK, helped as they were by 
their southerly position, 
which meant the crops were 
eariy- 

Agri culture was less impor- 
tant for Jersey, however, and 
it encouraged tourism, which 
had already begun before the 
«ar, Guernsey, loo, had its 
visitors, but on a smaller scale. 

The development of the 
islands as financial centres 
began in the 1960s. Again it 
was Jersey which was the 
leader. For some years it had 
had income tax, both for 
individuals and companies, at 
a flat rate of 20 per cent; and

when the States did away with 
legislation which put a 5 per 
cent limit on interest rates, the 
way was open for banks and 
other financial institutions to 
move in. 

Guernsey followed suit, 
making a speciality of captive 
insurance - the arrangements 
made by large companies to 

Space is the 
biggest problem 

cover their own risks — with 
the result that the financial 
industry is now the largest 
contributor lo the budget in 
both islands, as well as signifi- 
cant employer. The islanders 
have accommodated them- 
selves without difficulties to 
the presence of neat-suited 
men with briefcases, arriving 
from round the world. 

Perhaps the biggest problem 
now for the islands is the 
limitation of space. Jersey and 
Guernsey are small to say 
nothing of the others, and they 
have much to make them 
attractive to immigrants — the 
low rate of tax. economic 
success (there is almost no 
unemployment), and their 
physical appeal. But to allow 
unrestricted immigration 
would destroy their character. 

Each island has its own way 
of curbing immigration. The 
difficulty lies in trying to 
ensure that limitations of that 
sort do not also hamper their 
continued economic health. 


Not a sign of 
party politics 


When the States of Jersey 
meet in session, there in a 
prominent position is the mag- 
nificent silver-gilt mace pre- 
sented to them by Charles □, 
similar to the one at Westmin- 
ster. But the formal opening 
proceedings, including the 
prayer read by the Dean, are in 
French and there is ranch to 
remind one that the island, 
like the other Channel Is- 
lands, has its own distinctive 
traditions. 

The presiding officer is the 
Bailiff. Peter Clrill, who is the 
titular head of the island under 
the Queen, who appoints him, 
and he is essentially a judicial 
rather than a political figure 
who also presides over the 
Royal Court - though he has a 
casting vote in the States. 

The other voting members 
of the States are 12 senators, 
12 comfet&btes or constables 
representing the island's par- 
ishes, and 29 deputies. 

The Queen's representative, 
who also has a seat, but no 
vote, in the States, is the 
Lieutenant Governor, Admiral 
Sir William Pillar. He pro- 
vides a . link between the States 
and the Home Office in Lon- 
don, which handles Channel 
Islands affairs. 

The most surprising feature 
is that there are no party 


politics in Jersey, or any other 
of the Channel Islands. Tbe 
members of the States sit as 
individuals, and if there are 
alliances between them mi 
specific issues that come up for 
debate, there is no likelihood 
that the same people will vote 
together on other occasions. 

Yet tbe members of the 
various legislatures have real 
power to decide policy on the 
many issues confronted by the 
islanders, from tbe level of 
income tax to immigration 
policy and support for agricul- 
ture. They are responsible for 
the whole range of services ran 
independently by the islands 
from airports and harbours 
to electricity and the 
telephone. 

It is done esssentiaUy by 
committee. Committees are set 
up to handle the various areas 
of policy — finance and eco- 
nomics, tourism, public health 
— and they make recommen- 
dations to the States. A pro- 
posal that has been adopted by 
the States is transmitted by 
the Lieutenant Governor to the 
Privy Council in London and 
once it has been approved 
there it becomes law. 

In Jersey there is a 
policy advisory committee, 
which has the task of co- 
ordinating policy, together

Insurance Costs Escalating? the channel islands /2 


Bisk Management Limited is a consultancy founded in ttie 
conviction that exacting technical standards and 
independence from the control of insurance broking or 
insurance company interests are pre-requisites to objective 
advice on risk control, retention and financing. 

Working exclusively on a fee basis, we provide discerning 
insurance buyers with a standard of service which has 
enabled us to establish an international reputation, 
particularly in the fields of risk retention advice and the 
financing of risk retention by use of property managed 
captive insurance companies. 

Our risk management services include: 

audits of insurance and risk management programmes: 
loss analyses and development of risk retention 
programmes: 

captive insurance company feasibility investigations and 
the management of such companies.

A feudal air and a taste of France 


The Channel Islands have a 
great deal to offer as tourist 
resorts. But the nature of the 
tourist industry has been 
changing as the Mediterra- 
nean. for instance, has become 
a major attraction. 

Both in Jersey and in 
Guernsey there is an aware- 
ness of having to compete 
harder for visitors. In the past 
there was a sure market in the 
United Kingdom, often of 
families who wanted no more 
than a traditional bucket-and- 
spade family holiday. But now 
there are counter-attractions 
in other places where the sun 
is holier and the cost no 
higher. 

There is, therefore, an at- 
tempt to attract visitors from 
further afield, France initially, 
but also the Netherlands and 
West Germany. There is also a 
feeling that ihe future of 
tourism in the Channel Is- 
lands lies in moving 
upmariceL 

The appeal of the islands is 
clear. With long shorelines 
they have superb beaches and 
cliffs, and rural interiors. 
Their climate is warmer than 
that of much of the British 
Isles, and they have the added 
attraction of a touch of exoti- 
cism: they are close to France 
while being undoubtedly 
British. 

They do not of course have 
the cultural attractions of 
some larger countries, but 
they have some magnificent 
castles — Mont Orgueil and 
Elizabeth Castle in Jersey, 
Castle Comet in Guernsey - 
which reflea the islands' tur- 
bulent past 

St Peter Port, the capital of 
Guernsey, is an exquisite 



Promenade strollers: Taking die air at St Brelade's Bay, Jersey 


small harbour town of narrow 
streets and stately town- 
houses, with views out to sea 
of the islands of Herat, Jetbou 
and Sark. Its museum gives a 
graphic account of the island's 
history. 

Jersey was the first island to 
appreciate the possibilities of 
tourism, which began before 
the Second World War. For 
some time Guernsey derived 
most of its income from its 
flourishing horticultural in- 
dustry, but when that ran into 
difficulties it started to take a 
more active interest in attract- 
ing visitors. 


The result is that today 
Jersey is the more commer- 
cialized in style* Guernsey 
definitely quieter. St Helier 
does not have the appeal of St 
Peter Port. But there are pretty 
yachting harbours elsewhere 
in Jersey, at Gorey and - St 
Aubin. 

The smaller islands all have 
their individual characteris- 
tics. Alderney, which was 
completely evacuated before 
the German occupation in 
1 940. was turned into concen- 
tration camp, but has since 
started a new life. There is also 
Sark with its feudal air and 


Herm with its beaches and 
cliffs. 

One idea, which is bring 
developed both in Jersey ana 
Guernsey, is to attract more 
people to the islands by hold- 
ing conferences there. Anoth- 
er, which. was explained to me 
by Senator John Rothwell, 
president of Jersey's States 
tourism committee, is to ex- 
tend the notion of a tourist 
season by encouraging people 
to come for short breaks, or 
second holidays, at other 
times -of year. 

Both he and Michael Wal- 


Flowers all the 
way to the bank 




There was a time when much 
of Guernsey was covered by 
glass-houses growing toma- 
toes. They are known as 
vineries because they were 
used for growing grapes before 
the arrival last century of the 
“love apple”, or tomato. 

Today the tomato business 
has been dramatically re- 
duced. Whereas at the peak in 
the late 1970s, Guernsey used 
to export some 8.5 million 
trays a year, the figure now is 
no more than 1 .5 or 2 million. 
But the business continues, 
and the growers have met the 
challenge by diversifying into 
other crops, particularly 
flowers. 

Agriculture and horticulture 
have long been a vital part of 
the economies of all the 
Channel Islands. They have 
their differences - Jersey be- 
ing tilted towards the sun, and 
Guernsey away from it — and 
that has partly conditioned 
their development In Jersey it 
is easier to grow crops out of 
doors, while Guernsey was 
early forced to adopt the 
technology of glasshouses. 

But agriculture remains a 
staple element in island life, 
even if its contribution to 
budgets has fallen behind that 
of other sectors. Colin Powell, 
the influential Economic Ad- 


viser to the States of Jersey, 
emphasizes its importance as 
part of the social fabric — not 
least the link between the 
honorary police, a significant 
feature of Channel Island s life, 
and the farming community. 

Jersey cows continue to 
produce all the island's milk, 
providing the basis for a 
valuable dairy industry; and 
on the rival island the Guern- 
seys can usually be counted on 
to do the same. Only Guern- 
sey cows are allowed on 
Guernsey, though experi- 
ments have been made on a 
Guemsey-Charolais cross- 
breed for beef production. 

Jersey's strength is in new 
potatoes, whose success is the 
key to the island's agricultural 
well-being. But it also pro- 
duces cauliflowers, tomatoes 
and flowers, as well as new 
crops such as courgettes and 
peppers. 

It is possible, with hind- 
sight, to argue that Guernsey's 
tomato industry was doomed, 
because sooner or later there 
was bound to be unbeatable 
competition from places fur- 
ther south. But for several 
years the island's tomatoes 
seemed to be riding high, and 
the growers were lulled by the 
apparent security of success. 

Now that the blow has

den, director of tourism in 
Guernsey, emphasize the need 
to change attitudes in the hotel 
and catering industry, as the 
old pattern of holidaymaking 
is changing. Volume might be 
down on the past, but new 
approaches to attracting visi- 
tors can achieve results. 

The islands are already 
beginning to attract more 
foreign visitors. A few years 
ago about ~97 per cent of 
visitors to Jersey were British. 
Now the figure is only 80 per 
cent with 13 per cent French 
and the rest from other Conti- 
nental countries. 


The island is exporting about 
£30 million of them a year — 
exports of tomatoes used to be 
worth twice as much as those 
of flowers, but it is now the 
other way round. Guernsey 
grows 30 per cent of all the 
roses going into the United 
Kingdom, and 80 per cent of 
the freesias. Other successful 
flowers are carnations and 
alstroeraeria. 

At the same time the island 
is anxious -to have other 
strings to its bow and, in 
addition to its flourishing 
financial sector, is setting out 
to build up' light industry. 
Tektronix, the large American 
company and a major manu- 
facturer of oscilloscopes, for 
testing electronic equipment, 
has been established in the 
island since 1958, and Guern- 
sey has attracted other high- 
technology firms. ... . 

Dvnatech, another Ameri- 
can company, which makes 
both communications equip- 
ment and clinical equipment, 
arrived in 1976. Eurotherm, a 
British company making elec- 
tronic instruments, arrived 
the year before. 

Jersey, by contrast, is not 
encouraging light industry, be- 
cause new -companies, would 
put further strain on the 
island's limited workforce — 
and it does not want more 
immigrants. Bat it does have 
some small firms, malting 
knitwear, electronics equip- 
ment and shock absorbers, for 
instance, as well as one pack- 
ing lea.

continued from page 1 5 

wnta the key finance and 
e con omics committee. 

In Guernsey co-ordination 
is carried out by fee a dvisory 
and finance committee. 

The Channel Islands are 
divided into two baflhricks, 
Jersey and Guernsey. There 
are many similarities, h ut each 
has Rs own separate constitu- 
tional arrangements, and 
these reflect the detemnnwi 
indmdua&sm of the islanders, 
maintained over die centuries. 

Guernsey, Eke Jersey, has a 
Bailiff, Sir Charles Frossa rd, 
aid a Lieutenant Governor, Lt 

Gen Sir Alexander Boswell. 
But the make-up of the States 
b different — 1 2 cooseOkrs, 33 
deputies, 10 representatives of 
the doozaines, or parisb^cmm- 
efis, and two representatives of 
the States of Alderney — with 
the consefllers being elected in 
a different way from Jersey’s 
senators. 

Besides that, the bailiwick 
of Guernsey includes the is- 
lands of Alderney and Sark, 
each of which has its own 
legislature, the Stales in Al- 
derney and Chief Pleas in 
Sark. So whereas the two 
smaller islands can l egislate 
oo most matters that concern 
them, the States of Guernsey 
have certain overriding pow- 
ers, particularly in criminal 
law. . . 

None of the islands is part of 
the UK and this nukes for a 
complex and sensitive rela- 
tionship with Westminster 
and the British Government. 
The British Government is 
responsible for the defence 
and international relations of 
the islands, and Westminster 
has the power to legislate for 
them in any area in the last 
resort. 

This became an important 
issue when Britain was negoti- 
ating to join the European 
Economic Commurnty. The 
blinders did not want to 
become full members of the 
EEC, because they would have 
lost much of then- cherished 
independence, particularly on 
fenrnrimt policy. But at the 
same time they did not want to 
lose their dose links with 
Britain, which gave free entry 
to them ami their agricultural 
and faortfcoftmal products. 

So after consultation with 
Westminster it was agreed 
that Britain would propose a 
compromise on their behalf. 
The islands would become 
subject to the EEC's common 
external tariff on industrial 
goods, and to certain parts of 
die common agricultural poli- 
cy, on levies, for instance, from 
outside coentries. 

They would not, however, 
receive support from the agri- 
cultural fund in Brussels, and 
would not be subject to EEC 
roles on the free movement of 
persons, capital movements 
and tax harmonization. 

The proposals were accept- 
ed by the Six, and the Channel 
Islands now have a states 
which suits them very well. 
They are in part members of 
the Community, hot in certain 
important respects have re- 
tained their traditional free- 
dom of movement.

Islands. . !"• 

V Total deposit liabilities are 
estimated at some £23 billion 
m Jersey . and . £7 billion' in 
^Guernsey — although overall 
the two islands’ activities in 
the financial area are of rough- 
ly equal importance. They 
carry out ofisnoxie fimd man- 

i- One major appeal 
is the low tax rate . 

agement, investment manage- 
ment, company 

administration and much else. 

■ ' The main reason for the 
islands 4 appeal is of course 
their low tax rates — .20 per 
cent on both personal and 
company Income: .But a fur- 
ther attraction, vigorously pot 
.forward by the island authori- 
ties. is die political* stability 
enjoyed for many years. This 
is foe product of an unusual 
non-party political system in 
which there is no risk of policy 
swings after elections. 

Finally, there’ is the proxim- 
ity ta London, weather condi- 
tions permitting, and a 
telecommunications system 
that links up St Helier-aad St 
Peter Port with anywhere in 
foe world.!.: ' 

Thereis concern over recent 
accusations that the islands 
are being used to “launder” 
money from criminal, organi- 
zations such as drug traffick- 
ers. Bui the island authorities 
maintain that though it is 
impossible:*} besurc there is 
■none of foal, they do cany out 
checks, and are ready, to play 
their part in international 
arrangements to control the 
access of undearable funds. . 


move in 

• They argue foal they never 
. set out to be a lax haven, and 
that the low rate of tax is 
.simply foe result of prudent 
budgeting. There is ho public 
. debt in either Jersey or Guern- 
sey, and they . berth have 
healthy economies with low 
unemployment - 

But the fact is that in recent 
years they have actively set 
out to develop their status as 
. otikhore financial centres, and 
these new services are-now an 
economic mainstay. 

In Jersey, foe financial sec- 
tor -is now thought to be ob a 
par with tourism as one of the 
two main contributors to foe 
budget, as wen as 'an impor- 
tant employer. In Guernsey, it 
is the single most important 
contributor, ahead of tourism, 
horticulture and light 
industry. 

- Jersey was first in foe field, 

- whh a decision by the States in 
1 961 to do away with legisla- 
. tion limiting foe permitted 
rate of interest to five per cent 
This led .to aja- influx of banks 
in the 1960s, and by foe mid- 
1970s there were so many 
established on the island that 
restrictions .were imposed. 

By that time Guernsey was 
actively interested, and banks 
were befog- set up -foere: 
Guernsey legislation was also 
more favourable to insurance 
business, particulariy the cap- 
tive insurance ^companies set 
op by 'big firms fo cover-some 
of their own risks,, and so the 
island became one of the 
world’s leaders in offshore 
insurance!. - 

Now, both islands are ex- 
tremely selective in whom 
they wflj admit, and applica-' 
lions are carefully scrutinized. 
The problem is that neither of 
them - wants an influx of 

immigrantv'so'vriien a new 
institution is admitted, strict 
limits are set on the number of 
outside employees it can bring 
in.' ■ 

' In the early days, much of 
foe business in foe Channel 
Islands was designed for Brit- 
ish expatriates who wanted to 
avoid UK taxes. Now it is for 
more international, catering 
for people with, no British 
links. Out of the total deposit 
liabilities-held in Jersey of £23 
billjon, only some £6 billion is 
in sterling. '

therefore, understandably sen- 
sitive abost immigration, 
since a small influx of. new 
residents- can have consider- 
able effects. 

The main attraction for new 
residents is the low rate of 
income tax — a flat rate of 20 
-per cent.- But there is also the =■ 
comfortable standard of li ving 
oh " the islands; with their 
prosperous economies and 
appealing setting. 

There is nothing in either 
island to prevent a British, or 
other EEC, national from 
travelling there or even find- 
ing a job as an employee. But 
buying or leasing a boose to

Cry Haro! for relief 


One of foe most extraordinary*: 
Survivals from Norman times 
in the -Channel Islands is the 
Cbmeur.de Haro. This is a 
procedure designed to give 
rapid relief in something of 
the same way as a court 
injunction. 

IE for instance, someone 
sees that a neighbour is build- 
ing on his land, in order to 
stop him he has to kneel down 
in the presence of two witness- . 
es and cry but “Haro! Haro! 
Haro! & l'aide, mon prince! on 
me fait tort!” Then he has to 1 
recite the Lind's Prayer lin 
French. 

The allegedly offending per- 
son has to stop what he is 
doing so that the case can be 
brought to court. The person 
who has raised the damenr 
then has to register his com- 
plaint at foe Greffe, foe island 


'record office, within 24 hours, 
and foe case must be made 
within a year and a day. 

The procedure is thought to 
date from the time of Duke 
RoBo of Normandy, the cry . 
of “Haro!” possibly being an 
abbreviation of“Ha Rollo!” 

It is not an everyday occur- 
rence in foe Channel Islands, 
but remains legally valid, and 
has been used on a number of 
occasions in recent years, 
often with success. 

A typical case was a shop- ! 
keeper in St- Peter Port, in ; 
Guernsey, who considered his ^ 
business was being damaged 
by a crane operated by a 
nearby building contractor. He 
went through foe motions and 
foe claim was upheld. When 
foe contractor continued to 
cause trouble he was fined.

Gnernsey's tighter controls 
have recently been given pub- 
licity by the case' brought 
against the island authorities 
at foe. European Court of 
Human Rights by Mr and Mrs 
Gerald GHIow. The Gfllows, 
an English couple, bnilt a 
house in Guernsey and lived 
foere from 1956 to I960, when 
Mr GiUow took op an over- 
seas post with a United Na- 
tions agency. 

On their return in 1979 they 
found that the law had been 
changed, so that they no 
longer had residential status. 
They could not occupy then- 
own house. The case is now 
under consideration. 


Sark is differehL An island of 
steep cliff? and quiet country 
lanes, in clear view of the 
French coast it has succeeded 
in retaining its individuality 
through the centuries. Today 
its affairs are still headed by a 
Seigneur, who has inherited 
privileges that go back to 
feudal times; and it still 
refiises-to ahow cars on its 
roads. 

It is not that it is cut off. 
Regular ferries make foe 45- 
minute trip from Guernsey. 
But iis eccentric, and appeal- 
ing, character is obvious to the 
visitor from foe moment be 
steps ashore and sees . foe 
public -transport standing by- 
to take him up foe hflL 

This is a long conveyance 
with rows of seats, known as 
foe “toast-rack”, which is 
balanced on two wheels and 
towed by a tractor. Tractors 
are allowed on Sark and this 
one takes visitors up into the 
village, where they can trans- 
fer to carriages pulled by 
sturdy horses, or to bicycles, 
or walk. 

I decided to walk, and a 
mile or so through the single 
street of shops and along a 
country road brought me to 
foe Seigneurie, an imposing 
stone house set in gardens. 
There I met Mr Michael 
Beaumont, who succeeded his 
grandmother, Sybil Hatha- 
way, foe formidable Dame of 
Sark, on her death in 1974. 

He is a relaxed, friendly and 
thoughtful man who gave up a 
career as a structural engineer 
to settle in Sark and gives 
every impression of enjoying 
iL 

The island's affairs are run 
by a legislature known as 
Chief Fleas which meets a. 
minimum three times a year 
in a school. There are approxi- 
mately 550 inhabitants and a 
budget of £15O,0 OQl 

The Seigneur has an impor- 
tant, but not dominant, pan in - 


this. He summons Chief Pleas 
and appoints four officials: 
the seneschal, who acts as a 
magistrate in civil affairs and 
minor criminal ones; foe 
prevou or sheriff, the greffier, 
or clerk; and foe treasurer. 

He also has some privileges. 
When Helier de Can ere L, a 
Jerseyman, was authorized by 
Queen Elizabeth I to colonize 
Saric in ! 565, it was stipulated 
that the island should be 
divided into 40 tenements, 
and that each tenant, or 
possessor, should in time of 
need be prepared to rally' to 
foe Seigneur armed with a 
musket 

-- Those^ tenements still exist, 
and so does the requirement 
that a tenant should present 
himself armed with a musket. 
More to foe point, whenever 
one of foe tenements sold, 
the Seigneur receives one- 
ihineenfo of the proceeds; and 

Tenents must still 
present a musket 

be has the power to veto land 
sales.. 

Mr Beaumont considers 
that he could only exercise 
decisive influence by one day 
refusing to carry out duties, or 
rights, assigned to him. The 
island's business would seize 
up and the Lieutenant Gover- 
nor of Guernsey, in whose 
Bailiwick Sark is. could order 
.foe States of Guernsey to take 
over Sark's affairsJust the 
threat of it would be enough. 

But this is not something 
foal Mr Beaumont appears to 
envisage. Constitutional crises 
seem remote in an island in 
which foe Seigneur rides 
round on a bicycle, the magis- 
trate is employed in foe power 
station, and (he two honorary 
policemen, foe constable and 
foe vingtenier, are respective- 
Jy a boat builder and a 
fisherman.

June 19, 1986 


W hether it was build- 
ing a marketing 
model or evaluating 
different invest- 
ment proposals, 
many people with a formal train- 
ing in management will find that 
their work has included some 
aspect of quantitative analysis. 

This may have been in the form 
of an introductory course in 
statistics or operational research, 
or perhaps a more specialized and 
advanced course in forecasting or 
decision-making. Perhaps quanti- 
tative analysis will have made a 
significant contribution to a par- 
ticular functional area of manage- 
ment — for example, statistical 
quality control in production. 


effectively as possible. They are 
highly skilled individuals, and 
those with significant quantitative 
skills are comparatively rare. 


In recent years there has, how- 
ever. been a lessening of confi- 
dence in quantitative analysis. 
Many companies have disbanded 
their “management science" de- 
partments. and integrated the 
personnel directly with the differ- 
ent functional areas of 
management. 

Also, doubts have been ex- 
pressed in public 3bout the role of 
quantitative analysis in Master of 
Business Administration pro- 
grammes. This extends to how 
much should be taught what 
should be taught and how it 
should be taught 

it is in any company's interest to 
ensure that MBAs are used as 


The lessening of confidence in 
statistics and operational research 
is almost certainly not due to any 
inherent inability in MBAs as 
individuals, and only partly due to 
how or what they were taught It is 
to a large extent due to the way in 
which the quantitative function is 
managed within companies. 

Certainly no amount of tinker- 
ing with how or what is taught is in 
the short term going to affect the 
typical senior management view 
of quantitative analysis. 

There is much anecdotal evi- 
dence concerning the limited ex- 
tent to which newly employed 
MBAs are encouraged (by their 
perhaps not-so-numerate superi- 
ors) to make use of recently taught 
analytical skills, and also the 
limited extent to which they 
themselves can see the use for the 
analytical skills they were taught. 


The time has 
come for a 
reassessment of 
certain business 


practices, says 
Dr Simon Conrad 



sonably be expected to be 
enthusiastic. 


Production is production, and 
marketing is marketing, some- 
thing that has to be done. Quanti- 
tative analysis may be seen as a 
luxury, but it is really about 
analysing the company's opera- 
tions and improving efficiency 
and profitability. It is, therefore, 
something about which directors 
and senior managers might rea- 


However, it is well known that 
many managers have a negative 
attitude towards quantitative 
analysis of any kind, and this of 
course has a naturally depressing 
effect on its use in any organiza- 
tion, They prefer the “hunch" or 
“seal-of-the- pants” approach, and 
are by nature wary ofquantitative 
analysis. .Analytical solutions are 
seen as either obvious or alterna- 
tively unimplementable. 


Of course, some companies can 
make more use of quantitative 
analysis than others. But more 
significantly, different forms of 
quantitative analysis are more 
relevant to some companies than 
toothers. 

How should a particular compa- 


ny allocate its resource skills in 
quantitative analysis? Projects 
such as constructing a marketing 
model to simulate the .effect of 
price changes on market share, or 
evaluating different inventory pol- 
icies, require not only a significant 
investment in analytical work, but 
also in meeting the hidden cost of 
implementing any changes. 

How does an organization sen- 
sibly decide between spending 
time constructing a marketing 
model or evaluating inventory 
policies? What evidence is there 
that the success rate buflding a 
marketing model is higher or 
lower than with an inventory 
model? What information is avail- 
able about the financial benefits 
that can be expected from each of 
these projects? 

Answers to questions such as 


these would allow senior manage- 
ment to judge the worth of 
particular projects or types of 
quantitative analysis within the 
context of their own. company's 
operations. And the fact these 
answers were available would lead 
to a more positive attitude by 
senior management. 

The question of what compa- 
nies need is at two levels, knowing 
what companies in general need, 
and knowing what is best for 
individual companies. 

• If it was known whal companies 
in general needed, then business 
schools and those involved in 
management training would be 
better able to meet these needs. 
The problem is, of course, that it is 
easier to uncover perceived need, 
in other words what companies 
want, than their real or actual 
need. There have been many 
investigations into what individ- 
uals within companies do, but few 
if any into what companies actual- 
ly need. 

The Institute of Statisticians is 
presently conducting a national 
study of company needs in quanti- 
tative analysis, and the way in 
which, the gap between the teach- 
ing of quantitative analysis and its 
practice in business and industry 
can most effectively be narrowed. 

Of course, different companies 
have different needs in quantita- 
tive terms. A small manufacturing 
company will have different needs 


from a large service-orientated 
company. 

" Wbai is required is a system by 
which individual companies can 
decide what their own needs are, 
and then compare these needs 
with their present resources. This 
amounts lo an audit of the 
analytical function of a company, 
but to be effective requires a value 
judgment about different types of 
quantitative analysis. 


mnagernent be overlooked. The 
management cons ulta nts, 
lobucon Human Resources, for 
example, are among those leading 
ihe wav towards developing ap- 
propriate analytical techniques in 




these areas, together with the 
necessarv PC software. The pur- 
pose is to enable these techniques 
to be used throughout the whole 
line-management structure from 
the boardroom down. 


tflOR 


N ational studies and for- 
mal auditing systems 
are for the future. 
What can companies 
do in the short term to 
make use most effectively of the 
skilled manpower they, have to 
hand? First, directors and senior 
manageis should try to adopt a 
positive frame of mind - remem- 
ber quantitative analysis can in- 
crease efficiency and profitability- 


second, quantitative analysis 
will increase efficiency and profit- 
ability if managed well Senior 
management might start by re- 
viewing the analytical projects 
currently under way, and by 
considering why those projects 
and not others have been under- 
taken. They should perform cost- 
benefit analyses on individual 
projects. 

Nor should the quantitative 
aspects of human resources 


Reviews and cost-benefit 
analyses will bring inevitable pro- 
tests from statisticians and opera- 
tional researchers, but 1 believe 
appraisals of this kind are in their 
own interest More formal and 
rigorous appraisals of their work 
might well remove some of the 
scepticism of senior management 
and would at the end of the day 
benefit the companies, the statisti- 
cians and operational researches 
themselves, and revitalize quanti- 
tative analysis as a management 
function. 


■ In the long term, with the results 

from a national study to hand, and 
a more formal procedure for 
evaluating quantitative analysis 
within individual companies, the 
situation would continue to 
improve.

management sciences etc - with several years broad 
commercial experience. 

You need to be commercially creative and keen

would work in practice.

As research extends the boundaries of scientific knowledge, 
it consolidates, refines and builds upon earlier work. Clearly without 
the genius and tenacity of people like Newton, the advances were 
making in technology today would be impossible. 

These advances, and the use of them, will be vital in shaping our 
world; consequently the responsibility of the research scientist or 
engineer has never been greater: that's why we attach a great deal of 
importance to the development of our scientific staff. 

Joining us as a graduate you will enjoy a training and personal 
development programme tailored to your particular needs, and you 
will be encouraged to gain further professional qualifications. Advanced 
projects, a supportive working environment and early responsibility 
combine to offera rewarding career; 

Starting out in research has always been a difficult proposition 
even for the Newtons of this world. In some ways it may be easier 
today but the challenges which you will face are as profound as any 
in history

the country over the next few weeks. Come and see what we have to

field. On Tuesday night it 
spent £286,000 at Sotheby's 
on “The Northern Drawbridge 
to the Citadel in 
Copenhagen", by the Danish 
artist Christen Kobke. 

Kobke is the undisputed 
master of the early nineteenth- 
century golden age of Danish 
painting. Most of his paintings 
depict views in and around 
Copenhagen with a quiet, lu- 
minous realism. 

None of his distinguished 
German and Austrian contem- 
poraries are yet at the gallery 
but tbe acquisition indicates 
that the northern school will 
come to be counted among the 
“old masters" of the period. 

The painting was bid for by 


izes in early nineteenth-centu- 
ry paintings. Sotheby's bad 
estimated the picture at 
£70,000 to £100,000. 


It depicts the handsome red 
drawbridge of the Citadel with 
a passerby leaning on its rails 
and other figures on the banks 
of the water. It dates from 
1837. There are two stndies for 
the picture in Danish 
museums. 


Rubens's painting of his wife 
In the National Gallery, “Le 
chapeau de paille", sold for 
£308,000 (estimate £100,000- 
£150,000). A head and shoul- 
ders of a Byron ic young man 
with an open shirt by Theo- 
dore Gericanlt made £275,000 
(estimate £150,000 to 
£ 200 , 000 ). 


The sale of nineteenth-cen- 
tury European paintings, 
drawings and sculpture includ- 
ed an unusual number of first- 
class works which were bid 
well beyond expectations. 

A half-length portrait by 
Tissot of a lady in a gorgeous

Joseph Moore entitled 
“Musk" set a new auction 
price record for the artist at

Tbe evening sale totalled 
£3.2 million with 24 per cent 
left unsold. The sale of second- 
division nineteenth century 


pa in tings yesterday morning 
made £762.190 with 35 per; 
cent unsold- The two sales i 
underline the current highly 
selective market; top-quality 
works are strongly competed 
for but middle quality can be 
hard to sell. 

Phillips' sale on Tuesday of 
modern British paintings had 
a well timed depiction of Ascot 
week. Dame Laura Knight’s 
“Showers at Ascot" made 
£44,000 (estimate £J 0,000 to

Kate Smith, the hefty Amer- 
ican singer whose rousing 

rendition of the Irving Berlin 
number. “God Bless 
America" made her an endur- 
ing symbol of US patriotism, 
died on June 17. in Raleigh. 
North Carolina- She was 79. 

Born in Greenville, Virgin- 
ia, on May 1, 1907, Miss 
Smith, was brought up m 
Washington where she began 
singing at church suppers as a 
child. 

She had set her sights on a 
career in vaudeviile but her 
taiher, dubious or the popular 
stage, wanted her to be a 
nurse. She was however signed 
for a Broadway show called 
Honeymoon Lane, but gave it 
up because colieagues" ridicule 
of her considerable weight 
made her miserable. 

She nevertheless persevered 
with her booming, unschooled 
voice, and gained a consider- 
able reputation in the 1930s 
with a CBS radio show which 
earned her the nickname 
“Songbird of the South”. 

During the 1930s and 


i Wk 



Her lusty rendition of u 
became a second national 
anthem during the war years 
and she found herself a US 
forces sweetheart, travelling 
nearly 100.000 miles to enter- 
tain American troops. . . / f 
She also raised more than - ‘ 
$600 million in World War 
Two bonds and acquired a 
second nickname - “Radio’s 
own Statue of Liben>". 

When President Roosevelt 


1940s, she had many popular presented her to King George 
hits, with such songs as “The vi on the occasion of the 


Music Goes Round and 
Round", “White Cliffs of 
Dover" and “When the Moon 
Comes Over the Mountain”. 

However her greatest fame 
was reserved for her version of 
“God Bless America" - which 
Irving Berlin confessed he 
thought was too saccharine, 
when she went to him in 
search of a patriotic song in 
1938. 


Roval visit to the United 
States in 1939 he simply said; 
“This is Kate Smith - This is 
America”. 

In 1982 she was awarded 
Lhe Medal of Freedom - the 
USA's highest civilian honour 
- by President Reagan at a 
special ceremony in Raleigh. . 

In recent years she had 
suffered severely from the 
effects of diabetes.

Mr Richard Balbemie, MC, 
who died after a long illness on 
I June 1 7, just before his 63rd 
' birthday, will be remembered 
for his outstanding contribu- 
tion in the field of residential 
child care, most especially in 
the treatment of disturbed 
young offenders. 

He retired in August, 1985 
after 18 years as Principal of 
the Costswold Community in 
Wiltshire. In 1967 this had 
been a conventional approved 
school with recidivism of 85 
percent. 

His task was lo transform 
the school into a therapeutic 
community. This he took on 
with uncompromising dedica- 
tion and singlemindedness. In 
fighting for his principles he 
was no respecter of rank or 
power and in the process 
made some enemies, but won 
the grudging or ungrudging 
respect of many others. 

He was not just a charismat- 
ic figure: the approach he 
developed for treatment of 
severely disturbed young of- 
fenders with unintegxaied per- 
sonalities was based on an 
explicit theoretical 
framework. 

Its effectiveness was dem- 
onstrated by a follow-up study 
which showed recidivism re- 
duced from 85 per cent to 
around 5 per cent 

However, Balbemie' s con- 
tributions to residential care 
of children began long before 
his stint at Cotswold. 

His lifelong concern with 
juvenile delinquency dated 
from his experience when, 
forced to leave school when 
his father, a regular army 
officer, was killed early in 
World War II, he began work 
in the office of a magistrate's 
clerk at the age of 15. 


His vocation was interrupt- 
ed by distinguished war ser- 
vice’ which used and 
developed his flair for leader- 
ship. At 16. exaggerating his 
age by several years, he enlist- 
ed in the regular army. 

Before he was 30 he was a 
major and company com- 
mander with the Gurkhas in 
Assam and Burma, and was 
awarded the Military’ Cross. 
He was also mentioned in 
Despatches. The wounds he 
suffered in rescuing a wound- 
ed fellow-officer led to his 
retirement in 1945. 

Graduating, then, from 
Cambridge in psychology, 
with a Certificate of Educa- 
tion. he trained as an educa- 
tional psychologist and it was 
while working in this capacity 
for the City of Oxford that he 
raised the money to set up 
Swalecliffe Park School for 
delinquent and maladjusted 
boys. He was its principal for 
five years. 

From 1957. he spent !0 
years first at Oxford, then at 
Bristol, combining part-time 
work in a therapeutic commu- 
nity for menially ill aduhs 
with research, consultancy, 
leaching social work students 
and writing - and also earning 
an Oxford BLitt to add to his 
Cambridge degrees. 

.As a result of his writings 
and his achievements at Cots- 
wold he was widely respected • 
nationally and internationally - 
by professionals in residential 
care, and he will be remem- 
bered gratefully by the many 
staff he trained and by the 
many grown men who. but for 
their treatment at Cotswold, 
would be now spending their 
lives in and out of prison. 

He leaves a widow. Joy. 
four sons, a daughter and two ’ 
grandsons.

Soviet medical scientists 
claim they have found a vaccina- 
tion “catalyst" which increases 
a hundredfold the response of 
the body's defence system to a 
vaccine. 

If substantiated the catalyst 
could eliminate harmful side- 
effects associated, for example, 
with whooping coagh vaccina- 
tion. protea against a number of 
diseases which at present resist 
vaccine treatment and. possibly, 
provide a universal vaccine able 
to protect, in one shot, against 
most of the diseases a person is 
likely to meet in a lifetime. 

The research team working 
filth Professor Viklor Kabanov

munnlngy. where the catalyst 
was first synthesized; also sug- 
gest it should make vaccination 
against allergies possible. 

The discovery lies behind 
another remarkable claim made 
by the Soviet doctors earlier this 
year. Thai involved the develop- 
ment of an anti-fia vaccine said 
to protert against all strains of 
die influenza virus.

Apart from reducing likely

and so avoid passing viruses 
through hens* eggs and monkey

result in harmful side-effects.

Through a haze of smoke from the 
inevitable big cigar, .Isaac Stem 
appraises the solo part of Peter 
Maxwell Davies’s Vioim Concerto. It 
lies open at what appears to be an 
especially fiendish twist of double- 
stopping figuration. and Stem has less 
than five days left to shape Maxwell 
Davies's first concerto for its first 
performance. 

"This is the worst tune , in the 
gestation process. You don’t yet know 
bow k-wifi gel with die orchestra, yet 
the solo part is going through your 
mind ince ssantly. You’re swimming 
in it,-woridngon ft day and night." I 
suggest that since only the previous 
evening Ire had been in action at the 
Festival Hall, he might allow himself 
a temporary breather. “Yes. 1*11 relax 
today, spend only about eight hours 
on ft, I guess.” 

The alliance of the 65-year-old 
doyen of New York fiddle virtuosi 
with the .reclusive English composer 
is one of the year’s more unlikely 
musical happenings. Even more ex- 
traordinary is that Stern, Andre 
Previn ana the Royal Philharmonic 
Orchestra have all been coaxed into 
the ancient gloom of St Magnus 
Cathedral to give the premiere as part 
of the Orkney Festival. Moreover, the 
BBC is employing a 40-strong crew 
and a satellite link to broadcast the 
concert live (BBC 2 and Radio 3) on 
Saturday night. The performers 
record the concerto for CBS at 
Walthamstow Town Hall on Monday 
and Tuesday, then on Wednesday’it 
will be played at the Festival HalL 
“By then we should have ft pretty 
good”, says Stern. 

In fact, surprise at Stem’s collabo- 
ration with Maxwell Davies is largely 
due to British ignorance of one whole 
aspect of the violinist’s life. He has 
championed new music from the 
earliest days of his 50-year concert 
careen at that time “new” meant 
Bartbk, Prokofiev and Stravinsky (be 
played the Stravinsky Concerto under 
the composer's direction). More re- 
cently he has premised pieces by 
Bernstein,' George Rochbeig, Pende- 
recki and, earlier this season, Henri 
Duulleux's Concerto. Stem admits he 
has a love-affair with this last, and 
will play it in London next year. It is 
dear, too, that he has taken a great 
liking .to Maxwell Davies's work, 
although when the 'idea was first 
suggested Stem did not know either 
the composer or his music. 

“I listened to recordings I read' 
about him, and realized he had a - 
definite voice of his own. This

Too much of the 
rude mechanical 


A Midsummer 
Night’s Dream 
Covent Garden 

One of the important differ- 
ences between Britten’s Mid- 
summer Night’s Dream and 
Shakespeare's is that the opera 
has two sets of players: not just 
Quince and crew but also the 
lovers, who become puppets 
in so many contrived situa- 
tions. The correspondences in 
the two duets of the first act, 
for instance, or the wholesale 
artificiality of the reconcilia- 
tion quartet must indicate that 
we are seeing not Hermia, 
Lysander and their compan- 
ions directly, but rather 
Britten’s artful response to the 
musical-dramatic opportuni- 
ties and problems they offer. 
Christopher Renshaw’s new 
production for the Royal Op- 
era reveals this play-acting in 
the extravagant, very physical 
behaviour of these four char- 
acters. But while giving us two 
sets of players (the peasants 
are good fun too) - ft. also 
provides, much less endear- 
ingly. two sets of rude 
mechanicals, the second being 
the pair of triangular climbing 
frames that dominate Robin 
Don’s decor. 

These are disastrous in sev- 
eral ways. In the first place, 
they are severe, brutahsi and 
geometrical, in utter dishar- 
mony with the score. Then 
again, they greatly limit. the 
acting space: either you stay 
on the horizontal at the front 
or you go about climbing 
ladders. They also tend to

music 


makes ft rewarding for me is that he 
treats the violin as a violin.” Stem's 
voice rises in a crescendo of rhetoric, 
as passionate and emphatic as his 
playing: “He doesn't break the instru- 
ment, or scratch it. or beat it. or attack 
it, or knock it he doesn't want it to be 
a rattle or a horn. He just uses it 
naturally.” 

The difference between the two in 
lifestyle could not be greater. Stem is 
not only one of America's most 
durable performers, but also a tireless 
campaigner for the arts. He saved 
Carnegie Hall from demolition in 
1960 and is now the figurehead for a 
S60 million appeal to restore it 
Completely (“Well it is — and I hope 
you British take this the right way — 
the centre of the western world's 
musical activity”). He helped found 
the National Endowment for the Arts 
(the American equivalent of the Arts 
Council). He courageously undertook 
a Russian tour at the height of the 
Cold War, and in 1979 a momentous 
visit to China, where his coaching 
session with 10-year-old violinists 
made happy footage for the film 
From Mao to Mosan. “Yes. that 
movie, despite winning an Academy 
Award, is actually rather nice”, says 
Stem. “It is so easy to touch the hearts 
of children through music.” 

Stem also, incidentally, played the 
violin on the soundtrack of Fiddler on 
the Roof — an appropriate task, since 
he was bom in the Ukraine. He once 
defined the US-USSR cultural ex- 
change programme with the memora- 
ble line “They send us their Jews 
from Odessa, we send them our Jews 
from Odessa”. 

Yet he sees parallels between his 
own humanitarian outlook on life 
and Maxwell Davies’s concern with 
working with the Orkney community. 
“That he is interested, as I am, in the 
world in which he exists. I could not 
be that ascetic 1 don't really wander 
too for from running water and a 
telephone. Bui I find the puckish 
quality in him very endearing. I guess 
the best word is fey. For example, he 
ends this concerto with no thought of 
public success. It's incredibly quiet 
and reflective. Any other composer, 
whatever he might put before, would 
write a good old ‘biff boom bang bah' 
in the last bar. At fust I had ray 
doubts, but now I think it will work. It 
really grows out of what has gone 
before, and it has a real wistfulness. 
There will be a long silence at the end, 

I guess. Someone will have to applaud 
to tell people it is over.” Stem, 
ponders the matter for a moment 
“Probably his publisher." 


taken over the Water Spirit's 
geriatric wheelchair from 
Richard Van' Allen' and, more 
kindly, less spectral, tolls out 
his “sorrow, sorrow, sorrow” 
from a still more corporeal 
heart. 

While John Treleaven and 
Ann Howard return as the 
Prince and the witchy govern- 
ess Jezibaba, the production 
has a Foreign Princess of new 
dignity and presence in Phyllis 
Cannan, and a little embryo 
Rusalka-to-be in the First 
Wood-Nymph of Cathryn 
Pope. Mark Elder conducts 
Dvorak's unashamed Peter 
Pan of a score with fineness of 
judgement equal to that on 
stage. 


Dance 



concerto was. however, to be different 
from his normal output For one 
thing, the venue for the- premiere 
limits the forces to be used. It's very 
much a Beethoven orchestra. Then, 
the music has a great deal of Scottish 
ip it certain rhythms, and the slow 
movement melody particularly. 

“You know, this beautiful, quiet, 
wailing-bagpipe tune struck me im- 
mediately. I thought ‘Copland, Bern- 
stein, clearlyf. Then I figured ft out, 
and Max confirmed it this sort of 
music was brought over to America 
two centuries ago by Scottish settlers. 




It was assimilated, particularly in the 
Kentucky Mountains, and became 
part of the folk-music heritage of the 
States. That's where Copland picks it 
up from, and Bernstein from Cop- 
land. Now Max, in a sense, makes it 
come back full-circle.” 

As a matter of principle Stem has 
not participated in the compositional 
process. “I don't want to play 
Joachim to his Brahms — not that I 
put either of us on that level I think I 
have suggested changing just two 
notes. In feet Max has written it very 
expertly for the violin, and what

production which ought to be 
most magical — fairies fanning 
Tytania and Bottom with 
long, stream er-tentacled 
wands, -or standing at the end 
with lights on fidnpg lines — 
look automated in the manner 
of a Busby Berkeley spec- 
tacular. 

There is also the problem 
that the machinery is noisy, 
and that ft is obviously not 
running smoothly yet: another 
intended breathtaking event, 
the revelation of Theseus and 
Hippo lyta under a white tent, 
was destroyed by a stiff rough 
transformation. Finally,, ft 
may ask too much of the 
ringers, particularly of the 
boys, that they should have to 
concentrate not only on their 
voices. but on their balance. 

It is a pity that this machine 
should loom so large — larger, 
surely, than it did when this 
production was first staged at 
Snape in .1980 — when other 
aspects of the design are 
inventive. The fairies all look 
as if they had- been splashing 
naked in- Howard Hodgkin's 
paint-pots. and. Oberon and. 
.Tytania have splendid billow- 
ing trains made out of whatev- 
er stuff- it is they use for 
dragonfly. wings. The lovers all 
in white are apt (though 
Hermia's teddy-bear is a silly 
touch), and John B. Read’s 
lighting even does something 
for the cloud shapes of.

The ringing cast is much 
easier to admire. James Bow- 
man steps on as Oberon from 
the old production of blessed 
memory, and, notwithstand- 
ing a tew losses of tone on 
Tuesday night, he gives a 
wondrous, strange and deli- 
cate performance, reaching 
right across the theatre with 
pinpoint exactitude. He has an 
intensely spirited and radiant 
partner in Lilian Watson's 
Tytania. The lovers too are 
half familiar, half new. but all

more suited to the tenderness 
of Helena than to her comedy. 


while Claire Powell manages

of the ladies’ difference in

The mechanicals, at least 
the human ones among them, 
are dominated by the rugged, 
resilient and thoroughly musi- 
cal Bottom of Stafford Dean, 
who seems the more comic for 
being ignorant that he is in a 
comedy. The orchestral play- 
ing under Roderick Brydon 
was not so firmly in place. Mr 
Brydon is an excellent Britten 
conductor, and here he 
seemed to be providing the 
right lead, but there were as 
many flaws as imaginative 
spots in the solo playing, and 
the general mezzo-forte lev- 
elled out much of the gauzy 
fineness of the score: perhaps 
it is not a dream to be dreamt 
in so large a theatre. 

Paul Griffiths 


Busy opera-goers up and down 
the country will have noticed a 
subtle scattering of white Vic- 
torian nightdresses, bedsteads 
and rocking-horses, and even 
the odd wheelchair, on the 
stages of Britain during the 
past three years since the 
unveiling of English National 
Opera's Rusalka. And if imita- 
tion is. indeed, the sincerest 
form of flattery, then David 
Pountney and his company 
must be delighted at the 
influence of his re-creation of 
Dvorak's retelling of the Un- 
dine myth. 

The production, with its 
spellbinding lunar beauty and 
its strange, aqueous images of 
the collective subconscious, 
has proved more endurable, 
too, than could ever have been 
hoped. Judging by the heavy 
booking for only three remain- 
ing performances in this, its 
second revival even ENO 
have underrated its drawing 
power. 

I have to admit that, on 
repeated viewings, I find 
Pountney's brilliantly and me- 
ticulously worked out nursery 
fantasy increasingly self-limit- 
ing. Perhaps because it be- 
longs to the “this is what it ail 
means” school it tends to take 
on the passive, static allure of 
the very type of mezzotint 
fantasy from which it seeks to 
be free. But its details are still 
seductive, and many of its 
visual images — the motion of 
swing and water-light, the 
while world of the rag-dolls, 
the surreal magic of the fire- 
place — are breathtaking in 
their dramatic and musical 
judgement. 

This time round, Eilene

pended between earth and 
water, repeats a portrayal 
which never flags, even when 
her voice occasionally threat-

Subtler rewards 


Ballet Rambert 
Sadler’s Wells 

Michael Clark’s first creation 
for Ballet Rambert, Swamp, 
premiered at Sadler’s Wells on 
Tuesday, is a more serious and 
more considerable work than 
any he has made hitherto for 
companies other than his own, 
and more so than most for his 
own groups. Thai is partly, 
one gathers, because he felt 
more at ease with the Rambert 
dancers (having been one 
himself not long ago), but 
another fotror is that Richard 
Alston specifically commis- 
sioned something from him 
on the lines o f Do You Me? 1 
Did. 

That piece, you may re- 
member. originally formed 
pan of a double bill with an 
early version of New Puritans. 
Teasing as ever. Oark de- 
scribed it in last Saturday's 
interview in this paper as the 
more accessible half of the 
programme. In fact, being 
choreo graphically more com- 
plex, dramatically more ob- 
scure. and without any of the 
usual amusing Clark gim- 
mickry. ft was harder to 
watch, but more rewarding 
too. 

In all of Clark's pieces, the 
fluency and originality of the 
dance invention is the chief 
virtue, but in Swamp and its 
predecessor that quality is 
seen pure, undiluted and more 
consistently sustained. He has 
said that it is related to the 
fil m of Who ' s Afraid of l ’irgin- 
ia Wolf?, a point underlined in 
this reworking by projecting 
stills from it as ddcor part of 
the time, but 1 cannot pretend. 

Concert 

LS/Henze 

Snape Mailings 

Atone time the title “compos- 
er in residence” at the 
Aldebuigh Festival could 
mean only one person. Now it 
changes hands annually. This 
year Hans Werner Henze is 
featured both in concert pro- 
grammes and at the local 
cinema, which is screening 
some rather severe German 
films of the 1960s and 1970s 
for which Henze provided the 
music. 

It is perhaps unproductive 
to speculate how his presence 
in Suffolk ties in with the 
radical fervour of his literary 
output, as quoted in the 
festival programme. For in- 
stance: “An must now lake 
the side of the repressed, the 
humiliated, the offended.” On 
the other hand, the intense 


to follow the emotional 
implications. 

The movement patterns, 
however, are consistently fas- 
cinating. This time he uses a 
larger cast eight assorted 
dancers compared with two 
couples before, which allows 
greater complexity and a 
marvellously animated finale. 
The costumes by Bodymap, 
the better of his two “house 
designers”, are simpler and 
bolder Bruce Gil ben's rock 
score provides a pounding, 
driving pulse for the work; and 
Charles Atlas's lighting is so 
good as almost to earn forgive- 
ness for his ghastly documen- 
tary about Clark shown 
recently on Channel 4. 

The cast is good, with three 
exceptionally strong male 
dancers. Gary Lambert, Mark 
Baldwin and Ben Craft; 
Amanda Britton and Lucy 
Bethune are outstanding 
among the women. 

Although Richard Alston as 
director is introducing no 
fewer than three new choreog- 
raphers this season, his own 
ballets dominate the repertory 
both in quantity and in num- 
ber of performances. That 
may be a matter of circum- 
stances rather than choice.

poetry is largely incoherent 
but its imagery is shot through 
with a tortured, visionary 
quality that clearly was the 
inspiration for Henze's music. 
What impresses primarily 
about the setting is the ex- 
traordinary richness and vari- 
ety Henze obtains from his 
accompanying forces (the 
same disposition of wind and 
strings as in Schubert's Octet). 
The instrumental and har- 
monic means are convention- 
al by 1950s standards. Henze, 
however, is the master of 
disquiet, and the agitated tex- 
tures are channelled into 
many anguished outbursts be- 
fore subsiding to an uneasy 
but muted instrumental coda. 

Tenor and guitar soloists 
add further dimensions. The 
former delivers the text most- 
ly in a deadpan, world-weary 
style. Julian Pike's limpid, 
small-scale singing, allied to 
his admirable security of pitch 
in the top register, seemed 
ideal. Contrast is provided by

Soviet Union’s new five-year plan 

Nuclear power to grow 


From Christopher Walker, Moscow 


The Kremlin is 10 press 
ahead with the rapid expan- 
sion of ihe Soviet nuclear 
power industry as a key ele- 
ment in its new five-year plan 
for the economy, despite the 
Chernobyl disaster. 

The plan was presented 
yesterday for final approval by 
the Supreme Soviet, the rub- 
ber-stamp Soviet parliament 

During a 90-minute speech, 
which included a blistering 
attack on the shoddy quality 
of many Soviet-made goods, 
Mr Nikolai Ryzhkov, the 
Prime Minister, stressed the 
“correctness'" of the commu- 
nist state's increasing reliance 
on nuclear energy. He claimed 
this had been confirmed by 
“both world and domestic 
experience". 

Under the new plan, which 
was put before 5.000 delegates 
meeting in the Kremlin's Pal- 
ace of Congresses, the amount 
of the Soviet Union's national 
electricity output generated by 
nuclear power is due to .rise to 
20 per cent by 1990. 

At present, existing nuclear 
stations account for 170,000 
million kilowatts, about 11 
percent of the total. 

The extent of internal oppo- 
sition among the Soviet public 
to the spread of nuclear power 
is unknown. 


Privately, a number of Mus- 
covites have expressed reser- 
vations and a hint of these has 
appeared in the official media. 

Yesterday, Mr Ryzhkov 
made only passing reference 
to the disaster in the Ukraine, 
which is estimated by Western 
economic experts to have 
alreay cost the Kremlin tens of 
millions of pounds to rectify. 

He said that it had demon- 
strated “the exceptional im- 
portance" of observing a 
technical policy which en- 
sured a “high reliability of 
nuclear power stations". 

After this week's two-day 
session of the bi-annual parlia- 
ment. the debate on the plan 
will be over and it will pass 
into Soviet law. 

Long before Chernobyl be- 
came a household name, the 
complex calculations of the 
central planners had been 
geared to the savings expected 
to be made from the long-term 
switch to nuclear energy. 

Mr Ryzhkov made no refer- 
ence to the poor management 
at the Chernobyl plant, where 
the director and chief engineer 
were recently sacked. 

But he launched a bitterly- 
worded attack on the perfor- 
mance of Soviet managers in 
many other fields of the 
economy. 


The Prime Minister singled 
out a number of areas for 
particular criticism including 
the construction industry, oil 
production, public transporta- 
tion, food production, ma- 
chine tool building and the 
manufacture of a wide range 
of consumer goods. 

He told delegates from the 
15 Soviet republics that at one 
of the main centres for die 
production of colour televi- 
sions, workers had recently 
been “punished" because of 
the poor quality of the fin- 
ished sets. 

He said that others should 
“draw conclusions” from the 
action ordered by the Com- 
munist Parly's ruling Central 
Committee. 

• FRANKFURT: Two spe- 
cial camps have been set up in 
northern Ukraine and Byelo- 
russia to shelter between 4.000 
to 6,000 people who were 
evacuated after the Chernobyl 
accident, a human rights 
group said (AFP reports). 

• London visit: Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze, the Soviet For- 
eign Minister, will be in 
London on July 1 4 and ! 5, Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, the Foreign 
Secretary, told the Commons.

Continued from page 1 

• In “pro- women-p riests” di- 
oceses, parishes could opt to 
come under a different bishop, 
who was against women 
priests, for “spiritual pur- 
poses”. The report finds the 
idea doctrinally unsound. 

• Transferring “anti-women- 
priest” parishes entirely to dm 
jurisdiction of an “anti-wom- 
en-priest" bishop to mate 
new non-geographkal dioces- 
es. The practical and legal 
difficulties wonld be 
considerable. 

• Separate parallel churches 
with a working relationship 
between them, but each of 
them autonomous with their 
own hierarchy of bishops. 

Earfi parish would at the 
outset choose which it w anted 
to join, and could change from 
one to the other. The division 
of church property would be 
according to such chokes. 

The report says: “The pro- 
posal wonld seem to involve 
the disestablishment of the 
Church of England”. This is 
the scheme to be be proposed 
to the synod by Canon Austin. 

• A new church formed by 
those who resigned from the 
Church of England, which, the 
report states, could happen. 



arrest 3,000 


Continued from page 1 
road-blocks on all roads in 
and out of Soweto and have 
armoured patrols moving 
through the streets. All the 
political activists have either 
been detained or are in hiding. 

“I live in the north-west of 
Soweto and we have had 
reports of disturbances in the 
east, but it is hard to confirm.” 

Many of those arrested are, 
according to Amnesty, the 
same black activists and trade 
unionists who claimed they 
were tortured when they were 
detained during the partial 
emergency last year. • - 

The British TUC said yes- 
terday that it understood that 
among the detained were Mr 
Jay Naidoo, leader of the 
Council of South African 
Trade Unions (Cosatu). which 
claims half a million mem- 
bers, and Mr Phiroshaw 
Camay, general secretary of 
the Council of Unions of 
South Africa, though other 
reports indicated that Mr 
Naidoo may in fact have been 
among a number of promi- 
nent figures who, at first 
thought to be detained, may 
have gone into hiding before ' 
the police pounced. 

Some of those arrested were 
rounded up at home at 2 am orr 
Monday. Others were picked 
up during the day, despite the 
fact that their unions had 
negotiated agreements with 
their empolers to observe the 
anniversary stoppage. 


- But the new detainees also 
indude doctors who treated 
previous detainees on their 
release and lawyers who acted 
on their behalf 

• There also seems to have 
been a substantial number of 
arrests among sections of the 
white community opposed to 
apartheid. 

A particular target of the. 
security police is said to have 
been the End Conscription 
Campaign (ECC), a largely- 
Christian movement among 
young whites, urging : lhetr 
fellows to refuse military ser- 
vice on grounds that- the 
actions of the South African 
Army are incompatible with 
traditional moral teaching. 

The activities of the ECC 
have been specifically out- 
lawed under the terms of the 
state of emergency. 

According to information 
obtained by one leading Brit- 
ish agency, which asked not to 
be named for fear of reprisal, 
12 leading members of the 
ECC were arrested. Four were 
taken from a Roman Catholic 
Church in Port Elizabeth. 
One, Sandy Stewart, was sepa- 
rated from her two children. 
Another was Philip Wilkin- 
son, who feces trial for refus- 
ing to take part in _ SADF 
operations -in the black 
townships. 

The tactics of the security- 
forces seem to Jiave been to 
overwhelm by sheer weight of 
numbers those individuals 
who have declared themselves 


opposed to government 
policy. 

Two independent reports 
have now reached the West of 
the storming by 1.000 police 
of the Glyn Thomas students' 
residence at Baragwanath 
Hospital u the early hours of 
Sunday morning. According 
to Mr Brian Brown, the Africa 
secretary of the British Coun- 
cil of Churches, the police who 
burst into the students' rooms 
outnumbered the individuals 
they set out to arrest by more 
than eight to one. Sixty stu- 
dents, were detained and all 
kinds of literature confiscated. 

Some of the most severe 
reaction by the Army and 
.police seems to have been 
’directed at- church services 
with mixed congregations on 
the tenth anniversary of the 
Soweto uprising. 

The British Council of 
Churches has received reports 
of police Sailing violently 
among the congregation at a 
multiracial ecumenical service 
at the Federal Theolo gical 
Seminary, in Pietermaritzburg 
before arresting many 
members. 

And in Mdantsane; in East- 
ern Cape; a service held by the 
president of the Methodist 
Church of South Africa, the 
Rev Ernest Baartman. which 
was vis ted by police who gave 
it permission to continue, was 
later brutally broken up by the 
Army. 


White clergymen from the 
Witwatersrand Council of * 

Churches were threatened 
with tear gas if they did not 
cease praying at the boundary 
of Soweto, to which they had 
journeyed with flowers. 

But there is still no official 
announcement of all this from 
South Africa, where an inter- 
nal and extremal news black- 
out is still strictly enforced 

The nearest that the people 
of South Africa come officially 
to knowing of the events all 
around them is that 
Johannesburg’s largest metro- 
politan newspaper. The Star , 
appeared yesterday with four ft 
white spaces, each bearing the 
rubric that the state of emer- 
gency made certain statements 
illegal. 

The paper's news editor, Mr 
Peter Mann, said last night: “I 
am not allowed by law to tell 
you what should have been in 
the spaces.” Bui it is under- 
stood that one was for the 
report about the raid on the 
Glyn Thomas residence. An- 
other was for the 450 names 
the paper had complied of 
people who had 
“disappeared” during . the 
emergency. 4 

Another jouranalist said: 

“So far the only recourse the 
press has had is through the 
Progressive Federal Party us- 
ing parliamentary privilege to 
read out names of suspected 
detainees in the chamber."

Rise in industrial output 
eases fears on economy 


‘ By David Smith 
Ecouonucs Correspondent 

Industrial output recovered 
sharply in April -from its 
winter lows. The rise, which 
comes after several- months of 
stagnant production, is a con- 
siderable relief for tbe Gov- 
ernment. quelling fears of a 
new downturn for the 
economy. 

The April increase was 1.1 
percent after a 0.1 percent fell 
in March. The April index of 
production was . 110.6 
(1980=100), its highest since 
June, 1979. 

Output in the latest three 
months was 1-3 per- cent 
higher than in die previous' 
three months and 2 per cent 
up on a year earlier. But, after 
allowing for tbe depressing 
effect o! the coal strike a year 
ago, it was tittle changed on its 
1985 level. 

Manufacturing led tbe April 
rise in industrial output, im- 
proving, by 1.8 per cent and 
.equalling the index; of 104.4 
recorded in June last year. Tbe 
last time manufacturing out- 
put was higher was in March, 
1980. 

However, Government stat- 
isticians gave a warning that 
the Ami! level of manufactur- 



ing output might he erratically 
high. The feet that Easter fell 
in March, for the first time 
since 1978, but that any 
immediate post-Easter holi- 
days will have been taken in 
April, has made the process of 
seasonally adjusting the fig- 
ures difficult. 

In addition, there was a 
sharp April rise in output of 
the electrical engineering in- 
dustry, which has been de- 
pressed by declining computer 
production. Computer output 
remained low in April, but 
production of other electrical 
engineering products picked 
up strongly. 


Despite tbe April recovery, 
manufacturing output in the 
latest three mouths was down 
by 0.2 per cent, and 0.5 per ■ 
cent lower than a year, earlier. 
Officials said that it was 
early to say whether man ufae- 
turing output has broken out 
of the steady declining trend 
which began after tR peak 
recorded in the second quarter 
of last year. 

Mechanical engineering is 
showing tbe most robust un- 
derlying trend. In tbe Febni- 
ary-Apnl period it was 5.7 per 
oent np on a year earlier. 
Production of motor vehicles 
and parts, in contrast, was 7.6 


per cem down on its 1985 
level. 

■ Energy output, boosted by 
electricity and gas supply; 
together with mineral oil pro- 
cessing, rose by 4.8 per cent in 
the latest three months. How- 
ever. the days when big in- 
creases in North Sea 
production boosted industrial 
output are over. 

The pick-up m manufactur- 
ing output in April has result- 
ed in a slightly better picture 
for both unit labour costs and 
productivity. Wages and sala- 
ries per unit of output were 6.7 
per cent up on a year earlier, 
compared with 8.5 per cent in 
March. 

In the three months ended 
in April unit wages and sala- 
ries were 7.6 per cent higher 
-than a year earlier, compared 
with 8.2 per cent in March. 
Even so. these figures are 
regarded in official circles as 
alarmingly high. 

Growth in productivity, 
measured by output per head 
in manufacturing, was just 0.2 
p6r cent in the 12 months to 
April, slightly better than the 
decline of 0.2 per cent in 
March. Even so, productivity 
has slipped sharply. 


US not hovering on brink 
of recession, says Volcker 


Washington (AP)— The 
chairman of the Federal Re- 
serve Board, Mr Paul Volcker, 
told the House foreign affairs 
committee yesterday that the 
United States is not hovering 
on the brink of recesaon. 

Mr Volckeris remarks came 
on a day when a downward 
revision of growth estimates 
for the first quarter suggested 
that Government hopes of -4 
per cent growth this year wifi 
not be attained. 

The-US economy expanded 
at a revised seasonally adjust- 
ed annual rate of 2.9 per cent 
in the first quarter, after 
inflation is taken into account, 
the Commerce Department 
said. 

An official said tbe econo- 
my would have to grow at a 
4.4 per cent rate over the final 
three-quarters of the year to 
reach the Administration's 4 
percent 1 986 grovsth+orecasL 


Asfced during his committee 
appearance whether the econ- 
omy was lagging and in need 
of new stimulus. Mr Volcker 
admitted that US growth had 
been slow for more than a 
year. 

He said slow growth was, in 
very large pan, due to the drag 
of the external sector on the 
domestic economy. 

With the recent adjustment 
in exchange rates, Mr Volcker 
said he hoped that factor 
would mitigate and even re- 
verse but that it may take 
considerable time for that to 
happen. 

The Federal Reserve chair- 
man said monetary expansion 
was proceeding by some mea- 
sure “relatively rapidly.'' 

He again suggested Western 
Europe and Japan should- 
bolster their economic growth. 

In testimony before a House 
sub-committee, Mr Volcker 


said: “Japan and West Europe 
essentially have had no in- 
crease in imports from Latin 
America since 1982.” 

Stressing that the US should 
continue its economic growth, 
he added: “Other strong coun- 
tries with little or no inflation, 
with excess capacity and his- 
torically high unemployment, 
and with very strong internal 
positions should assume more 
of the leadership in providing 
the impetus for world 
growth.” 

Mr Volcker warned that 
there were strains owing to 
international imbalances, and 
he said be did not believe 
relying upon exchange rate 
changes alone promised a 
simple and easy solution to 
the imbalances, however im- 
portant it is that the 

US had now achieved a 
more competitive exchange 
rate structure. 


Tomkins 

claims 

victory 

By Alison Eadie 

F. H. Tomkins belatedly 
claimed victory yesterday in 
its XI9Z million battle for 
Pegler-Hattersfey, the valves 
to -building products maker. 
Sir Peter Matthews, chairman 
of Pegler, phoned Mr Greg 
Hutchings, chief executive of 
Tomkins, on Tuesday night to 
concede defeat • 

Tomkins had gained control 
of 55.4 per cent of Pegler’s 
ordinary shares by 3pm on 
Tuesday, but did not dedare 
its bid unconditional until 
5.02pm, two minutes after the 
deadline according to the take- 
over code. The reason given 
was a faulty photocopier. 

Pegler’s adviser, S GWar- 
trarg, jumped on the technical 
error as a possible way of 
averting the takeover. 

Mr Hutchings yesterday 
said there were -no possible 
legal grounds for stopping his 
victory, as the acceptances 
were received well within the 
specified time. He had talks — . 
which he said went very well ~ 
with the Pegler board yester- 
day. 

The -Tomkins share price 
bounced . 17p higher to close at 
323p. •

Lexicon fails to meet 
dividend forecast 


By Our City Staff 

Lexicon has foiled to meet 
the payout forecast it made 
when it came to Ok London 
market in December. 

The American audio equip- 
ment maker is passing the 
interim dividend, and intends 
to propose a final of 1.1 cents a 
share. The offer for sale indi- 
cated gross dividends totalling 
not less than 3.4 cents a share 
for the year to August 31, 

1986. 

Lexicon shares were sus- 
pended on February 28 with 
tbe share price at U8p. The 
shares are expected to be 
relisted on Monday. 

Although Lexicon did not 
make a profits forecast at the 
time of the share issue, the 
dividend forecast was based 
on the' assumption that profits clarification 
for the year would be not less position. 


than those for the previous 
year. 

In the event pretax profit for 
the six months to February 28 
was $216,000 (£144,200), 
against $788,000 in the corre- 
sponding period. Sales were 
$4.68 million, down from 
$4.75 million, while the cost of 
research and development ad- 
vanced to SI. 05 million 

Lexicon says that results for 
the full year will reflect the 
continued heavy research and 
development spending on 
disc-based products and 
heavy competition at the low 
end of the product range. 

The London Stock Ex- 
change said that the suspen- 
sion had been at the 
company's request “pending

to join

By Our Gty Staff 

Smallbone, best known as 
suppliers of top peoples' be- 
spoke kitchens, is coming to 
the Unlisted Securities Market 
by way of a placing. At 1 6Sp 
the shares are on a price- 
earnings multiple of 15.4 and 
a gross yield of 3 per cent, 
valuing the company at £9.2 
million. 

The company grew out of a 
business which restored and 
dealt in antiques, and many of 
its kitchens reflect its origins. 
It attributes success to a policy 
of designing, supplying and 
fitting the whole kitchen, its 
jealously guarded quality im- 
age. and its obsession with 
adhering to delivery dates. Is 
[985 the company decided to 
apply its formula to bedrooms 
cno bathrooms, which now 
contribute 15 per cem of its 
£10.5 million turnover. 

Smallbone began trading in 
1980. and after initial losses, 
began to show sustainable 
profits in 1984. Its profits 
have doubled in each of the 
past two years, reaching £0.7 
million in the year to February 
28. The placing wifi raise £1.5 
million for the company, en- 
abling it to strengthen the bal- 
ance sheet 

Future growth wifi come 
from existing kitchen and bed- 
room ranges, and a fourth kit- 
chen range to be launched this 
year, together with two new 
bathroom ranges. It also plans 
to apply its creative design 
talents to other rooms.

A top-level insider’s guide to 
managing by the IBM book 


Biy Teresa Poole 

Buck Rodgers is in London 
this week preaching the man- 
tent gospel according to 


According to Mr Rodgers; 
the IBM secret is to make its 
staff feel important. That 
might sound naive, but the 
man who for 10 years was in 
charge of IBM’s marketing 
worldwide says: “I think the 
problem is that we have 
forgotten from a management 
view how to manage. 
' Forgotton how to make people 
feel important It sounds like 
motherhood, but that's what 
we have, got to do." 

Mr Rodgers spent 34 years 
with the company, rising to 
vice-president in charge of 
marketing, before taking early 
retirement two years ago to 
write a book on the company’s 
management and marketing 
philosophies. 

■ It is the first IBM book to be 
written by a top-ranking insid- 
er bot “kiss and telr it is 
not. Other companies can 
learn from IBM's success, says 
Mr Rodgers, rather than its 
mistakes — not that be admits 
any. . 

The IBM way is exemplified 
by the company's three com- 
mitments devised by its 
founder Thomas J Watson in 
1914. 

• The individual, must be 
respected 

• The customer must be 
given the best possible service 

• Excellence and superior 
performance most be pursued. 



Buck Rodgers 

Mr Rodgers says: “We have 
a culture. An organization 
needs to establish a creed that 
is going to guide the 
company." 

Whatthis means in practice 
is a strange cross between a 
ruthless meritocracy and en- 
lightened paternalism. 

There is no union represen- 
tation within IBM and the 
company claims never to have 
lost one day of work through 
strikes. At the same time it 
says it has never laid anyone 

there is no yearly cost-of- 
living pay rise. Instead pay 
rises for all employees arc 
based on individually assessed 
performance. “We reward suc- 
cess and penalize failure. We 
have put in place a meritocra- 
cy and we pay people on the 
basis of performance,” Mr 
Rodgers says. 

Staff turnover at IBM's 
United Kingdom subsidiary is 


about 3 per cent a year 
compared with 5 per cem in 
tbe United States. About half 
leave by choice and the rest 
are fired. 

“You've got paternalism to 
a degree, and encouragement, 
but we still expect people to 
produce," Mr Rodgers says. 

In times of restructuring 
IBM has chosen to retrain 
staff rather than ask for redun- 
dancies. About $1 billion 
(£666 million) a year is spent 
on training. 

Two areas of expenditure 
should rise 1 faster than a 
company's turnover says Mr 
Rodgers — education and 
training, and communicating 
with the staff about the com- 
pany. 

“There are no secrets in the 
book. These things are com- 
monsense. The trouble is that 
people don't practise 
corn monsense.” 

Elucidating these common- 
sense principles now earns Mr 
Rodgers a tidy sura on tbe 
lecture circuit His views on 
marketing, which, judging by 
foe book, concentrate on 
training and motivation and 
are for from revolutionary, are 
in great demand. 

“A lot of people feel that 
because of IBM's size there is 
reallv not that much to be 
learned. But practising excel- 
lence has nothing to do with 
size " he says.

Executive Editor Kenneth Fleet 

Tories find high-speed 
election war chest 


By injecting £2.5 billion worth of 
debt into British Gas when it comes to 
the market in November, the Govern- 
ment has made sure of a steady in- 
come from the sale during the run-up 
to the next election, without putting 
too much pressure on the equity mar- 
ket. The debt is likely to be repaid in 
three tranches, after three months, 
nine months and possibly two years: 
perfect timing should money be need- 
ed to finance extra public spending or 
other eleciorally attractive measures. 

The tactic also lessens the prospect, 
terrifying to some, of Sir Denis 
Rooke's striding through the City, the 
scent of takeovers in his fiery nostrils, 
his pockets bulging, his eyes on inde- 
pendent oil companies which have 
become rich on North Sea and on- 
shore oil assets acquired when the 
Government ruled that British Gas 
should divest itself of all non-gas hold- 
ings. 

While the debt, once repaid to the 
Government, will be re-placed with 
longer term commercial debt Sir De- 
nis would have preferred to come to 
the market with no debt whatsoever. 
Although he has (uncharacteristically) 
lost that particular battle be appears to 
have extracted a substantial price 
from the Government in return for 
acceding to its demands. Workers in 
British Gas, 90,000 of them, and the 
55,000 pensioners the industry has, 
will benefit from the offer of free 
shares under a scheme which is sub- 
stantially more attractive than that of- 
fered to British Telecom’s workforce. 

The offer includes an element 
which increases the number of free 


shares on offer to longer serving 
employees. By the nature of the gas 
industry it has a large proportion of 
long-serving workers and Sir Denis 
has always insisted that the workers 
should be adequately rewarded when 
the Government sold off the business. 

He also appears to have made sure 
that domestic customers, all 13 mil- 
lion of them, will be given priority 
when the shares are offered for sale. 
Details of how the customer will qual- 
ify for preferential treatment have yet 
to be announced but the British Gas 
management team has made it very 
dear to the Government that the cus- 
tomer must be allowed to buy shares 
as conveniently and simply as pos- 
sible. A voucher scheme will be intro- 
duced offering share purchasers dis- 
counts on gas bills. The corporate ad- 
vertising campaign emphasising the 
“user friedliness*’ of gas is already 
underway. 

Just how friendly British Gas is 
toward its suppliers will be put to the 
test when the first annual tariff review 
comes up. The new director-general of 
Ofgas — still to be named, if not yet 
chosen — will have to be satisfied that 
gas prices from the North Sea have ac- 
tually risen if price rises of more than 
two per cent below the annual infla- 
tion rate are to be allowed. 

With electricity prices falling in real 
terms British Gas will be anxious to 
keep its prices down. While being 
friendly to its customers British Gas 
may be less so to the oil companies 
which are still queuing up to develop 
North Sea gas fields and sell their gas 
into the national network. 


A tank challenge to MoD 


Not all problems can be dealt with 
as suddenly and swiftly as George 
Younger’s indefinite postponement of 
the troublesome Royal Ordnance flo- 
tation. While privatization plans 
come and go, conflicts of interest tend 
to stay around. Whatever the Ministry 
of Defence might say about staying 
faithfiil to the competitive defence 
procurement policy, there remains a 
fiindamental conflict of interest 
whether Royal Ordnance is in public 
or private hands. 

The MoD’s mistake was to try and 
fudge the issues arising from its very 
peculiar situation. The MoD owns 
Royal Ordnance and, even under the 
new arms-length relationship, gov- 
ernment orders account for more than 
80 per cent of the company's work- 
load. It was foolish ever to pretend 
that procurement policy would not at 
the very least be under severe pressure 
in the run-up to privatization. As it 
was, a £100 million order for Chal- 
lenger tanks — which looked set to be 
awarded to Royal Ordnance without a 
competitive tender — became the 
straw that finally broke the privatiza- 
tion camel's back. 

The lessons are legion. Competition 
is admirable but can work only in 
areas where demand can support 
more than one producer. In several 
products — large calibre arms, rocket 
motors, and tank guns — Royal Ord- 


nance has a virtual monopoly. When 
it comes to tanks there is real competi- 
tion; unfortunately there is also real 
overcapacity. Were Vickers to have 
won — or to win — the (as yet unplac- 
ed) order through a tender, the Royal 
Ordnance tank factory at Leeds, and 
1 ,000 jobs, would no longer be viable. 
In such circumstances the Govern- 
ment could not have reasonably asked 
new investors to bear the substantial 
closure and redundancy costs involv- 
ed. Without the order, privatization 
could not go ahead. 

The problem nonetheless remains 
under public ownership. The MoD 
was, and is, committed to competi- 
tion. But in the narrow sense in which 
competitive tendering between British 
companies is carried out, such conse- 
quential costs as redundancies cannot 
be included in assessing rival bids. If 
the order now goes to Vickers, the 
MoD would foot the bill at Leeds. * 

Interestingly, when the MoD is 
thinking about buying from overseas 
it builds into the assessment of ten- 
ders submitted a factor to take ac- 
count of the cost of consequential job 
losses to Britain. With Royal Ord- 
nance remaining in public hands for 
the forseeable future, might this policy 
not be extended to home territory? 

The mystery is why the MoD did 
not opt for a tender for the Challenger 
contract in the first place.

Chloride makes slow recovery 


So much of British industry 
has responded to the shock 
treatment of cost cutting, 
rationalization, and the dis- 
posal of unprofitable busi- 
nesses that foe success of 
these measures is assumed to 
be almost guaranteed. Not so- 
at Chloride, or at any rate not 
yeL 

To be fair, the chairman Sir 
Mich ael Edwardes gave 
warning at the interim stage 
that second-half profits were 
unlikely to be better than foe 
comparable period last year, 
and if exceptional redundan- 
cy costs of £8.1 million are 
stripped out, yesterday’s pre- 
liminary results woe no 
worse than expected. 

Chloride reported a pretax 
profit of £0.5 million, for foe 
year to March 3 1 . compared 
wgfo^ £14.9 million in the 
■previous year. Turnover 
from continuing operations 
was down 4 per cent to £274 
billion. 

There is a case to argue that 
the unhappy shareholder's 
misery could end soon. Hav- 
ing disposed of its US opera- 
tions. and taken a knife to its 
top-heavy cost structure, in- 
cluding halving its head- 
office staff and moving the 
rest into a smaller office. 
Chloride is now out of the 
opoating theatre and sitting 
up in the recovery room. The 
question is, when will the 
patient be able to get out of 
bed and walk. 

If foe underlying business 
stands sfifl in 1986-7, Chlo- 
ride should be able to an- 
nounce a pretax profit of £1 8 
million, a £17.5 million im- 
provement made up of costs 
saved of £6 million, interest 
charges lower by £2 million 
and the absence of 
exceptionals and losses from 
divested businesses of £8 
million and £1.5 million 
respectively. 

There is still no dividend in 
sight, but at 46p a share. 


Chloride is standing on a 
prospective rating of about 
8J. Hardly a growth multi- 
ple. but Chloride tos still to 
prove that it can overcome 
problems of overcapacity in 
the automotive battery mar- 
ket and show convincing 
growth in its other 
businesses. 


John Waddington 


The ripples from the US 
bombing raids on Libya end 
up on strange shores. One 
beneficiary is Comet Prod- 
ucts, the US plastic cups 
maker bought by John Wad- 
dington last year. Comet is 
apparently doing rather well 
as stay-at-home Americans 
lake more picnics. 

Mr Victor Watson, 
Waddington's chairman, 
hopes for even better things 
from Comet, particularly 
when^ it starts making 
Waddington’s polyester food 
trays in September. These 
oven-io-table plates have al- 
ready ‘made an impact in 
Britain, with Bird's Eye the 
latest large customer. 

Other parts of foe group 
also make Mr Watson strong- 
ly bullish for foe current year, 
which he says has starred well 
up on budget. Business forms 
and paper packaging should 
both do weU. while foe print- 
ing division is busy running 
off the royal wedding stamps 
for 22 countries. Heavy tele- 
vision advertising is also 
helping sales of 
Waddington's famous games. 

Last year, Mr Watson said, 
was one of consolidation. 
Pretax profits to March rose 
as expected from £5.7 million 
to £6.4 million, while a higher 
lax rate cut earnings per share 
by some 1 0 per cent to S2p. 

The main problem was foe 
Canadian games offshoot 
which suffered as the quiz 
games craze faded. The pros- 
pect of closure was avoided 


by diversifying into statio- 
nery. 

Mr Watson’s bullishness 
caused some analysts to 
upraie 1986/87 profit esti- 
mates to £10.5 million. This 
puts the shares on a very 
reasonable prospective earn- 
ings multiple of 1 1, even after 
they rose 40p to 85(h) 
yesterday. 

A 1 3p final dividend. 1 p up 
on last year, is planned along . 
with a four-for-one tonus 
issue. 


Godfrey Davis 


The decision by Godfrey 
Davis to reduce its depen- 
dence on Ford car sales looks 
increasingly astute 

The current level of dis- 
counting is fierce — Godfrey 
Davis is allowing up to 16 per 
cent on new models, rivals 
probably more — and. with 
vast overcapacity throughout 
foe European motor industry, 
prospects of any uplift in 
maisins. look highly unlikely. 

Results for foe year ended 
March 31 illustrate bow the 
group's wings have spread 
into more dependable and 
profitable concerns. 

Pretax profits showed a 21 
per cent increase to a record 
£4.5 million. A final dividend 
of 3p a share makes a total of 
4.5p compared with 3.75p. 

Godfrey Davis's contract 
hire side and foe Ford main 
dealerships are contributing a 
total of £3.3 million at foe 
operating level, with contract 
hire now making as much 
money as the dealerships. 

While second-hand car 
sales, fed from foe contract 
hire business, remain buoy- 
ant. foe chairman Cecil 
Redfem is extremely cau- 
tious about prospects for the 
new car market. 

But there are other attrac- 
tions as Godfrey Davis in- ' 
creasingly offers a property 
profile to foe stock market. 


Its chain of 24 residential 
parks, providing more than 
3.000 homes, are generating a 
rising proportion of operating 
profits — £1.6 million against 
£1.3 million — with minimal 
overheads. Coupled with the 
move into renting portable 
cabins, £1.3 million this time 
round, there is now a case for 
seriously reassessing the 
company’s motor image. 

It would be unwise to 
anticipate foe same growth in 
foe present year. 

Bui the market’s percep- 
tion of Godfrey Davis is 
probably due for a reassess- 
ment and. while there is no 
suggestion of a bid — Mr 
Redfeam controls 30 per cent 
of the company — the shares, 
up 4p at 1 18p look safe- 

Thames TV 


Thames Television's offer 
for sale price at 190p is 
considered in the City to be 
reasonable value. Assuming 
foe stock market stays rea- 
sonably firm foe issue should 
command a premium. 

Thames is foe premier 
stock among TV companies 
because of its high advertis- 
ing revenue, strong overseas 
sales and extensive pro- 
gramme library. Its rating, 
however, is in line with foe 
sector and its prospective 
yield of 7.04 per cent at foe 
offer price of 190p. is gener- 
ous. 

Investors should to aware 
of the risks, which 
includenon renewal of foe 
franchise in 1988. It is a risk 
worth taking, as foe astute 
Michael Green of Carlton 
Communications thought 
when he made his bid. The 
immediate future is altogeth- 
er encouraging, with pretax 
profits this year expected to 
exceed £17 million giving a 
prospective multiple of under 
nine. 

Prospectus, pages 29 to 34 



This month the long-established Berry 
Pacific Fund Ltd changed its name to the GT 
Berry Japan Fund Ltd, reflecting the vital role 
that GT has played in managing the portfolio 
since the fund was launched in 1970 and the 
fact that it has been invested solely in Japan 
since 1981 

Over the years this large and well estab- 
lished fund- some US$300 million in size -has 
shown above average performance measured 
in many currencies. Since launch in 1970 the 
fund has shown a cumulative appreciation of 
1557% in dollar terms and 2468% in sterling 
terms. 

The June 1986 issue of Money Manage- 
ment confirms the fund as the best performing 
ofishore fund investing in Japan over the last 
7 years (the longest period reported) in terms 
of sterling converted ofishore funds. 

THE VALUE OF A 
PRESENCE IN TOKYO. 

GT has long been a specialist in Japanese 
investments. Its Tokyo based managers have 
the kind of local research and market intelli- 
gence that is simply not available to fond 
managers based in the UK. 

GT has been monitoring the Japanese 
economy for the past fifteen years, identifying 
changing investment trends, and anticipating 
investment opportunities as these have moved 
from mass produced goods through elec- 
tronics and other high quality exports to the 
forecast upsurge in domestic demand 


THE NEW INVESTMENT 
OPPORTUNITY IN JAPAN. 

With the decline in oil and other com- 
modity prices and the Yen at record levels 
against the US Dollar, Japanese import costs 
have been falling rapidly. The Japanese auth- 
orities are starting to deregulate the economy 
and financial system and companies with a 
strong domestic business base now represent 
a new and rewarding prospect 

The managers of GT Berry Japan Fund 
have moved decisively to reposition the port- 
folio to take advantage of these new trends. 
They have not responded by creating new 
funds. 

With more than £ 3 billion under manage- 
ment round the world, GT is one of the UK’s 
largest independent investment groups. In 
Japan and the Far East alone, GT handles in 
excess of £1 billion for its clients. With the

New firm plans to refine 
ideas on securitization 


Shopping 

schemes 


tailored to appeal to • 


called in workers and consumers 


By Judith Hnntley 

Morgan Grenfell Laurie, ihe 
organization formed by the 
merger between Morgan 
Grenfell, the merchant bank, 
and Michael Laurie & Part- 
ners. the estate agent, is work- 
ing on its own vehicle for 
selling securities in commer- 
cial property. 

The MGL version is 
thought to consist of selling 
securities in debt rather than 
equity, but the firm is still 
working on its ideas. 

They are likely to be a 
refinement of the concept of 
securitizing commercial prop- 
erties, launched by Goldman 
Sachs and Baring Brothers last 
week with the sale of BiUinps- 

S ite, the £79 million office 
u tiding owned by S&W 
Berisford in the City of 
London. 

The sale of securities in 
large and expensive offices 
and shopping developments is 
likely to be the way forward 
for bringing liquidity to an 
illiquid market. Bui the exact 
nature of the investment vehi- 
cles on offer will change if this 
market in Britain takes off 
There would be merit in 
Goldman Sachs and MGL 
working together and being 
involved in what is funda- 
mentally the same market, 
even if the detail of their 
respective offerings differ. 

There are those in the 
property industry who are 
concerned that too many play- 
ers in the field, keen to 
promote their own brand of 
■securitization or unitization. 





Otefu- 'L&iWHi 


Greycoat Construction's £3.8 million refurbishment of 27 
Leadenhall Street in the City of Loudon is now complete. 
Our picture shows the post modern feel of the marble-dad 
entrance hall, which was designed by the Rotfe Judd Group 
Practice. The 50,000 sq ft building is now on the market 


will result in fragmentation 
and the failure of tentative 
steps to set up new investment 
opportunities for commercial 
property. 

Talks are thought to be 
under way between Goldman 
Sachs and MGL about their 
mutual involvement in the 
securities market for commer- 
cial property. 

The deep discount bonds 
issued by Baring and 
Goldman Sachs for Billings-' 
gate have been placed, and on 
Friday were trading at par 
with the market, which had 
improved since the terms of 
the placing were announced. 
The closing date for the plac- 


ing of the preference shares is 
next Tuesday, a testing time 
for the underwriters. 

So far interest has come 
from smaller British pension 
funds and private investors as 
well as buyers from the Far 
East and Europe. And it will 
be interesting to see if Samuel 
Montagu, Billingsgate's mer- 
chant bank tenant, buys secu- 
rities in the building. 

The final version of the 
vehicle for selling Billingsgate 
emerged after several months 
ofhard talking. It was original- 
ly conceived as the sale of 
securities in the debt on the 
building, but changes in the 
budget altered that, and the 


mixture of debt and equity 

emerged. 

S&W Berisford and London 
& Edinburgh Trust, the joint 
developers, had looked at 
alternative ways of selling the 
scheme. In the end Berisford 
bought LET'S stake in the 
development and went ahead 
on its own with the 
securitization of the new 
offices. 

The Coal Board Pension 
Fund made a cash offer of £74 
million for Billingsgate, but 
this was after deducting the 
cost of a rent-free period to 
Samuel Montagu. 

The effective price offered 
by the Coal Board was £78 
million, a figure only £1 
million below that put on the 
scheme by Debenham Tewson 
& Chinnocks, the firm called 
in to give an independent 
valuation for the parties in- 
volved in the securitization. 

The market will be looking 
closely at the success or other- 
wise of the Billingsgate sale. A 
number of high quality, ex- 
pensive City offices are sitting 
on developers’ books at 
present, largely funded with 
short-term construction fi- 
nance and non-recourse loans. 

These, like Billingsgate, 
have to be re-financed. Hence 
the pressure for a new form of 
investment medium with 
which to sell them. 

It remains to be seen how 
many investors will be tempt- 
ed by the prospect of putting 
their money into securities 
backed by commercial 
.-developments. 


£5 00m plan for lookalike mall 


• Color Properties, the 
company owned by the 
KoEodotschko family, 
which has 7 million sq ft of 
commercial property in 
Germany, is aiming to build 
tire British version of 
Canada's West Edmonton 
Mall shopping and leisure 
centre, the biggest In the 
world. 

The she chosen for this 
ambitions project — the devel- 
oper plans a £500 million 
S3 million sq ft retail and lei- 
sure scheme — is SandweU 
in the West Midlands. 

Color Properties is act- 
ing jointly with SandweO 
Council, which owns the 
110-acre she, a former steel 
works. The developer in- ~ 
tends to build an equal 
amount of retail and lei- 
sure space, a concept as yet 
untried in this country. 

It is hard for those who 
have not seen the enormous 
West Edmonton Mall to 
envisage bow such a project 
would look, bat Color 
Properties says there wfi] be a 
five-acre water park, an ice 
rink and multi- screen cine- 
mas. The financing of such 
a venture could lead to new 
forms rtf development 
funding being sought Color 
says that several banks, in- 
cluding foreign ones, are in- 
terested in the 


development It is certainly 
too expensive an operation 
to be funded in the conveo-' 
tional institutional fashion. 

The developer is looking 
for aid to restore the derelict 
site and to put in the infra- 
structure, hot it says that oth- 
erwise the scheme will be 
commercially viable. 

The Edmonton centre is 
being re-financed through a 
privately placed long-term 
mortgage secured on the mafi. 
The proceeds are being 
used to repay variable rate 
debt 

The paper is being of- 
fered to Canadian institutions 
with titepossibOhy that 
some US and Japanese inves- 
tors may participate;- 

Cookf this point the way for 
funding a scheme tike 
Sandwefl Mail? 

• Tarmac Brookgiade - 
Properties is expanding its 
plans for offices, apart- 
ments and amenities at Heron 
Quays la London's Dock- 
lands from 600,000 sq ft to 1.5 
million sq ft oa the 
strength of demand for space 
in the enterprise zone. The 
letting agents are Hillier 
Parker, Leslie Lintott & 
Associates and Clapshaws. 

The London Docklands 
Development Corporation and 
the Port of London Au- 
thority have given a planning 


brief to four developers for 
North Quay, a seven-acre site 
also in the enterprise zone. 
The corporation, responsible 
for regenerating 5,000 
acres of redundant docldaad, 
will expect firm financial 
offers to accompany the 
developers* proposals. 

The four in the running 
are Galleria Development 
Company (consisting of 
Blackwell GT, National Leash- 
ing and Finance and Sir 
Robert McAIpine & Sons), 
Town & City Properties, 

ARC Properties with Boris, 
and Rosehaugh. The 
800,000 sq ft office, retail and 
residential scheme could 
cost about £150 million. 

• The Law Commission is 
proposing radical changes to . 
the Landlord and Tenant 
Act to remove a hangover 
from feudal times which 
imposes liabilities on botfi the 
original tenant and land- 
lord even after a lease has 
been assigned. 

In the words of Mr 
Trevor Aldridge, the Law 
Commission chairman: 

“What cooes as a consider- 
able surprise, and some- 
times a painful shock, to some 
people who have been ten- 
ants is that, even after they - 
have patted with the prop- 
erty, they continue to have a 
responsibility to ensure 


that the lease obligations are 
fuffiBed.” 

This could mean that a 
tenant in a shopping centre 
assigns his lease to anoth- 
er trader just before a rent re- 
view. The review comes 
through with a hefty increase 
in rent. If the second ten- 
ant then becomes bankrupt, 
the orginal tenant is liable 
for all the lease obligations, 
including the mneb in- 
creased rent 

It is this liability which 
die Law Commission hopes to 
remove from the Act unless 
it is fair and reasonable for it 
to continue. 

Mr Steven FogeL a part- 
ner in Titnrass, Sainer & 
-Webb,-the law firm and a - -- 
member of the Law 
Commisskm-’s working’ 
party on the subject, known as 
the privity of contract prin- 
ciptevSayst^The trouble with 
this law is that most peo- 
ple don't know about it or . 
don't think about it imc3 
they get bitten. When it bites 
it nsnally bites hard.” 

The Law Commission is 
asking the property industry 
for its views on the plan to 
remove this liability from the 
Act. 

Mr Foget says: “If the 
public wants a change it 
should stir itself otherwise 
privity will go on quietly se- 
lecting its future victims.” 


by Ridley 

Capital & Counties and Town 
& City Properties have had 
their rival applications for the 
development of a million sq ft 
of shopping space at Thur- 
rock, Essex, caDed in by Mr 
Nicholas Ridley. Secretaiy of 
Stale for the Environment. 

Capital & Counties, for one, 
hopes that any inquiry into 
the proposals will be limited 
in scope and that it .will deal 
only with the merits of the 
competing schemes. 

So for' there has been no 
indication on the range of the 
inquiry, to be conducted by 
the Department of the Envi- 
ronment, nor on the length of 
time involved before a deci- 
sion is made. 

Unlike some plans for big 
out-of-town shopping centres, 
the schemes by CapCo and 
Town & City Properties, part 
of the Peninsular and Oriental 
Steam Navigation Company, 
are not in the green belt. 

The decision on which — if 
either- of the schemes will go 
ahead is likely to rest on 
arguments about the impact 
on the environment, on near- 
by shopping facilities and the 
merits of out-of-town versus 
town centre retailing. 

Thurrock district council is 
in favour of CapCo’s £100 
million scheme, which in- 
volves just over one million sq 
ft of shopping space around a 
lake on a site owned by 
Pearson, the owner of the 
Financial Times and half of 
Lazard Brothers, the mer- 
chant bank. 

Town & City’s plans are for 
the redevelopment of a former 
cement works west of the M25 
and which it has owned for 
some time. It wants to provide 
1.3 million sq ft of shopping, 
leisure and recreation space. 

Not only will the CapCo 
and Town & City schemes 
have to contend with the 
Secretary of State's decision, 
but another competitor ar- 
rived on the scene this weekin 
the guise of Blue Circle Indus- 
tries and Shearwater, the retail 
subsidiary of Rosehaugh. 

It revealed plans to trans- ! 
form a quarry into a 1.5 
million sq ft shopping and 
leisure development close to 
the M25 at Dartford, Kent' 
However, this Blue Circle- 
Shearwater scheme will test 
Mr Ridley's policies for the 
green belt as weH-as those-on 
stopping. 

But' the Government has 
unveiled its view on the' Use 
Gasses Order, which is to be 
changed' to - allow “for more- 
flexible uses in commercial 
properties. - -- 

The British. Property Feder- 
ation, which has b<*n pleading 
the cause of increasingly flexi- 
ble use classes, has tod little 
lime to digest the impact of 
tiie Government’s proposals. 

Mr Ron Denny of the 
federation said;” We want to 
study the' impact on existing 
schemes, but it makes a lot of 
sense to have a* flexible use 
class.” 


By David Young, Energy Correspondent 


The privatization of British 
Gas in the autumn — probably 
in mid-November after the 
Stock Exchange has absorbed 
the effects ofbig bang —will be 
tailored to make sure em- 
ployees, former employees 
and domestic gas consumers 
will apply to become share- 
holders. 

Details announced yester- 
day by the Energy Secretary 
Mr Peter Walker, wifi, he 
hopes, encourage millions of 
people to become sharehold- 
ers for the first time. 

He said: “The British Gas 
offer will bring within reach of 
everyone the chance to share 
in the fortunes of a major and 
successful enterprise. Details 
ofthe special arrangements for 
share purchase we shall be 
(making available to small in- 
vestors will be announced at a 
later stage. 

“These will indude arrange- 
ments for domestic gas^ con- 
sumers who register their in- 
terest in advance to purchase a 
guaranteed allotment of 
shares. 

“The provisions marie a 
further step towards realizing 
an historic opportunity which 
will be good, not only for gas 
consumers and those who 
work in the industry, but for 
the millions of members of the 
public who will be able to own 
shares.” 

Under the details announc- 
ed for employees and pension- 
ers to buy shares — the details 
of how consumers will be 
given p referential treatment 
•will be given in the final pros- 
pectus — each of the 90,000 
employees will be eligible for 
free shares worth £70 plus £2 
for each year of service. In 
addition the Government will 
provide two free dares for 
each share bought by an em- 
ployee up to a maximum of 
£300 of free shares for £150 
purchased. It will also be open 
to employees to purchase up 
to £2,000 worth of shares at a 
discount of 10 per cent 

For British Gas pensioners 
there will be a free offer worth 
around £75 and pensioners 
and employees will be able to 
apply for additional shares on 
a priority basis. 

The costs of this will be £54 
. million if every employee. 


takes up bis maximum entitle- 
ment and £3.75 million for the 
shares which will be given to 
the 55,000 pensioners. This 
means each employee will be 
given up to £600 worth of 
shares, compared with a maxi- 
mum of £470 which was given 
to British Telecom employees. 
British Telecom pensioners 
did no.t qualify for free shares. 

The other major dement of 
the privatization announced 
yesterday is the finalization of 
the regulatory* formula con- 
trolling prices which was an- 
nounced in December. Under 
the formula the tariff price 
ceiling set by the formula has 
two main components: the 
Retail Price Index minus X 
dement which is similar to the 
British Telecom price control, 
and the Y dement which 
represents the raw material 
cost of gas. 

The Government has decid- 
ed to set the X element for the 
the first five years of the for- 
mula's life at 2. This means 
the element of the charge to 
tariff customers — all domestic 
consumers and small industri- 
al users — covering the deliv- 
ery of gas is held at a level 2 
per cent below the rate of in- 
flation. • 

Mr Walker said yesterday 
that X had been set at 2 to 
provide a continuing, incen- 
tive for British Gas to contain 
costs directly within its con- 
trol and to ensure that custom- 
ers participate in the benefits 
of cost containment The for- 
mula will set a demanding dis- 
cipline for the company to 
meet while leaving opportuni- 
ties for profit-oriented man- 
agement to work for better 
performance, Mr Walker said. 

The formual will be policed 
by the director general of 
CHgas, whose appointment is 
likdy to be announced by the 
the time the iegilzation to 
privatize British Gas is given 
Royal Assent when Pariiar 
ment rises for the summer re- 
cess. 

The pricing formula will not 
apply to bulk contracts, where 
the . Government • believes 
competitive factors between 
gas. electricity, ofl and coal 
will help keep prices down in 
anycase. 


The Y element in the pric- 
ing formula is the proportion 
orBritisii Gas's costs which re- 
flect the price it pays the 
North Se3 oil companies tor 
its natural gas supplies, a price 
regarded as a commercial sec- 
ret-The X element in the pric- 
ing formula rep resen ts all 
other operating costs and, 
being limited for five years to 
ihe Government-set levcL ef- 
fectively prevents British Gas 
from cross-subsidising ineffi- 
cient sectors of is operations 
simply by increasing the price 
ofgasL 

The other factor announced 
bv Mr Walker yesterday which 
will effect the City's attitude to 
tiie offer is the announcement 
that the new company’s bal- 
ance sheet will contain debt 
and equity. The Government 
has decided the debt element 
will be fixed at £2.5 billion, 
which it says will ensure a 
properly balanced capital 
structure while leaving full op- 
portunity for development 
and growth. 

The Gas Bill provides the 
necessary powers for the Gov- 
ernment' to assume responsi- 
bility for the existing British 
Gas Corporation 3 per cent 
guaranteed stock, which re- 
lates to liabilites incurred 
during nationalization in 
1948. This will be transferred 
to the National Loans Fund, 
which will assume liability for 
the service and redemption of 
the Stock. There will be no 
compensatory payment into 
the NLF to balance this liabil- 
ity, which wtS be met from the 
Consolidated Fund. 

The Government had also 
decided that the gas levy will 
remain in force at 4p a therm 
for another five years. The 
Jew. which provides £504 
million a year to the Treasury, 
was introduced to cover those 
gas fields which did not pay 
petroleum revenue tax. In five 
years’ time those fields will be 
nearing the end of their lives, 
with most gas supplies coming 
from fields which incurr PRT. 
In theory the Government 
could then- raise the levy to a 
level which would still pro- 
vide around £500 million an- 
nually, but this is thought to 
be politically unlikely.

When Thames was granted hs entrent franchise, the IBA desofoed it as "a company with 
eonsidefatfeall^oundsaengfo and the ability to sustain go od perfoui ta itLcirt foe fimire”. The 
IBA also stated that it wislrad to porsue with. Thames foe poKibility irfeiad^mg foe public to 
buy shares In tire Company and to discuss im p rovem ent* in to regional service. Thames, in 
conjunction with foe principal shareholder, believes that the BvrodiKxion of public 
foareholdeESwUIbein foe^ best mtereasoftbe Company.- 

T.T.H. and A-R Television, subsidiaries of Thom and BET respectively, haw df rid-d to 
reduce foeir bokHngs ro 28. 75 per cent- each of foe itfued Ordinary share capital of^ Thames. 
White welcoming this step foe IBA has stated that it wishes foe principal shareholders ro retain 
between them a majority shareholding in^ Thames for the period of foe c m rara fr anchise, thus 
preserving, in this respect,, foe nature and characteristics of foe Company in which foe 
franchise was awarded. In response, foe principal shareholders have uzutettahen that they will 
retain a majority shareholding in Thamesfarach period. . 

A total of 18,000.000 Ordinary shares is now faetagseid in equal proportions byasubsidiary of 
Thom (ocher than T.T.H.) and A-R Television- Of these, 910,474 have been allocated 
to employees punuaac to foe~ prefie .foare'sebone described below and County is

(representing 35.6 percent of the i^ued Ordinary share capital ofThames). 

The Articles of Association of Thames contain provisions limiting the number of shares in 
which -any person (other than foe pr i nci pa l shar e hold er s) may be interested to 10 per cent- of 
foe total issued Ordinary shares of die Company, permitting the Ditccttns to require a disposal 
of shares if they bebeve that any bolding may bring about a termination of, or refusal ro extend 
or renew, the programme contract and placing restricrionson the rigfar of certain members to 
aoend and vote at general meeting unless the IBA agrees Otherwise. In addition, in the event 
ofa change In (STmrol of a principal shareholder where such change is not approved by foe IBA, 
a disposal of the shares ca that principal shareholder will be required and the other principal 
shareholder will; subject to IBA consort, have the right of first refusal to acquire these shares. 
The IBA has indicated, however, that it would be unlikely in normal circumstances to grant 
such consent. 

Employees of Thames and to subsidiaries, including approximately 1,100 Who already hold 
Ordinary shoes, have preferential allocation rights for up to 1.700,000 ftdinaiy shares in this 
offer for sale. Derails are set out in paragraph 16 of “Statutory and general information”. 


HISTORY 


Until 1955, television broadcasting in foe Unified Kingdom was carried out solely by the BBC- 
Tbe Television Act 1954 established foe Independent Television Authority which was 
empowered to award contracts for die provision of television programmes. Contractors were to 
be financed by foe sale of aimme as opposed to a licence fee paid by viewers. 

The &»t broadcasts by a contractor appointed by tbe Independent Television Authority were 

on 22 September 1955. Further contraas were awarded to nm from 3DJuly 1968 and 1 January 
1962 respectively. On I July 1972 foe IBA su cc ee de d foe I nd ep en d en t Television Authority as 
foe body em po wered roawatdcohtracg.' 

There are now stacteatPr og i uium eCO n octots, all of which, excluding TV-anu have regional 


responsibilities. Thames and four others are “majors" carrying specific responsibilities for foe 
provision of program mes to the network. 

Thames has been the Programme Contractor tn the London area on weekdays since 30 July 
1968. The Company was formed as a consequence of a merger of the programme contracting 
activities ofRediffiision Television Limited and ABCTelevisfon Limited, ftior to 30ju!y 1968 
Redtfhsfeion Television L i mited operated the London weekday franchise and ABC Television 
Limited opera ted the weekend franchise in the Midlands and North- 
Television broadcasting in the London area is divided between weekday and weekend 
franchises because of the area's co n ce ntration of population and purchasing pons. Thames 
broadcasts from 9.25 am each weekday; LWT broadcasts from 5.15 pm an Fridays. Prior to 
1 January 1982 Thames bad broadcast until 7.00 pm on Fridays bat, under the new franchise, 
Thames’ broadcasting hours were shortened and in addition two transmitters covering the 
Medway area were transferred to another Programme Contractor. No further such changes 
have been made or are expected to be made during the term of foe present franchise. 

Thames has three wholly owned operating subsidiaries: Euston Films, established in 1971 ro 
make films for televisaa and the cinema; 1 11, which has traded separately since 1983 
distributing programmes worldwide, having previously operated as a division within- Thames; 
and Cosgrove Hall, which has produced animated films for children since 1976. 

In 1984 TO was granted foe Queen's Award for Export Achievement 
Thames will be the first Programme Contractor to receive a “salute" from foe International 
Council of foe National Academy of Television Am and Sciences, which is based in foe 
United States. This is planned ^ to take place In foe spring of 1987.

Networking 

Networking is the procedure fbr exchanging programmes and sharing costa between 
Programme Contractors. Network transmission schedules are compiled by the Directors of 
Programmes of the majors, although each P rogr am me Contractor retains a degree of discretion 
over precise scheduling in its area. Transmission schedules are subject to the approval of the 
IBA. 

Networking between nwyo»s 

Each major has 3 responsibility to produce programmes fbr the network determined by its share 
of the tool NAR of the majors, though Thames and LWT contribute by reference to their 
combined NAR share. Programmes are normally exchanged through a pooling arrangement 
under which each p ro g ram me has a fixed tariff value determined by its type and length. 
Thames contributes approximately 43 per cent, of the total, in tariff value, at the network 
programmes during its broadcasting horns. 

Major to regional networking 

The majors guarantee to supply a minimum number of hours of programmes each year to the 
regionals, who pay a fixed hourly rate; any additional hours attract a supplementary payment. 
Income is shared between the majocs in relation to the value agreed between them of 
programmes taken by the regionals. 

Regional networking 

Programmes provided to the network by regionals are paid for either at a fixed hourly rate or at a 
negotiated price. Each Programme Contractor pays in relation to Its industry NAR percentage. 

Network events 

Network events include unpredictable and non-re c ur rin g events and some sports and outside’ 
broadcast coverage. Such programmes are originated by a nominated Programme Contractor 
on behalf of the network and costs arc shared on the basis of industry NAR percentage. 
Examples of network events are the World Cup and "Fanfare For Elizabeth”, a gala evening ar 
Covent Garden whrch was produced by Thames and attended by Her Majesty The Queen in 
celebration of her sixtieth birthday. Thames will be the originating Programme Contractor fbr 
the coverage of the forthcoming Royal Wedding - 

ITN . 

1TN provides a national and international news service to the network and costs are shared on 
an industry NAR per centa ge basis. The division of costa attributable to tire London area 
bet ween Thames and-kWT is on the basis of thf rarmof ITN tr ansmissi on rim* felling mm rlw» 
weekday and weekend rriusmisaon periods. 


Feature films and /2m series 

The purchase of United Kingdom transmission rights to feature films, films made for television 
mkI film series fa nnrmafty organised on behalf of the network by Ae Network Rha. Purchase 
Group, which is composed of representatives of die Programme Couiractoo- Each Programme 
Contractor pays its industry NAR percentage of the total cost and receives transmission rights 
within in area. Where films ore purchased as part rf a package, the value allocated to each film 
fc uatall y derwtntn eri In accordance with the value attributed by the distributor. Normally the 
Londcm costs ofUnited Kingdom film rights are borne by whichever ofThames or LWT makes 
the first transmission. Subsequent transmission rights are shared on the bash of an agreed 
formula. Fbr individual films where the United Kingdom rights cost in excess ofUSSl mill ton, 
Thames and LWT allocate a value to each transmission and share costs accordingly. - 

Sale of airtime 

Thames' largest source of revenue is the sale of airtime on ITV and the Fourth Channel in the 
London area- Airtime is normally limited by the IBA to an average of six mi n utes per hour 
across the day with a maximum of seven minutes in any one hour. The relative affluence of the 
London area makes it particularly attractive to advertisers a f financial services, leisure 
equipment, holidays and travel, office equipment and entertainment- 
The price at which airtime is sold is specified on rateeatds issued periodically by Thames, the 
form and manner of which are approved by the IBA. Disputes in relation to the contents of 
ratecards and disputes concerning any sales practices may be referred to the IBA or to the 
Advertising Liaison Committee, which was established by the IBA in- 1980. following the 
publication of die latest Thames tarecard, the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising, which . 
is represented on the committee, has asked the IBA to consider certain of the incentives 
included In that isteeaxd. 

Thames’ ratecazd, in common with those of other Programme Contractors, is based on die 
premise that prices should relate to demand and includes the concept of pre-emption. 
Essentially an auction' system prevails which enables a booking at. one price to be overbid or 
pre-empted by a bid at a higher price, up to a maxim u m le vel. The current rarecard, by offering 
a variety of possible purchases of advertising spots, enables advertisers aid advertising agencies- 
to control the cost cif airtime purchased by them- If they wish to purchase a particular position 
within a specific break, they may do so for an additional cost. Thames* revenue a consequently 
highly geared to demand. 

The IBA maintains strict roles on the scheduling and content of adver tisements . Compliance 
with these rules is monitored on a day to day basis by the IndepeadenrTeievilion Companies' 
Association fTTCA”). .... 

Over the five year period ended 31 March 1986 Thames' NAR, Including revenue from the safe 
of airtime on the Fourth Channel, has been as follows: 

Thames’ NAR Industry 

Year ended 31 March £ million NAR percentage 

1982 107.7 16.7 

1983 115.0 15.9 

1984 135.2 " 15.9 

1985 .... 131.2 14-5 

1986 1553 15.0 

Thames* industry NAR percentage for die six months ended 31 March 1986 was 15*3 per cent, 
compared with 14.7 percent, in the sue months ended 31 March 1985. ~ 

The changes in the London weekday contract, which were effective from ! January 1982, were 
expected, within (he industry, to reduce Thames’ Industry NAR percentage from 
appr oxima tel y 17 percent, to 15.7 per cent. In the years ended 31 March 1983 and 3 1 March 
1984 Thames' industry NAR percentage exceeded this expec n ed leveL 

Industry NAR fra the last quarter of 1984 and the first half of 1985 declined in real arms year 
on year by some 5 per cent.; a contributory factor in this decline may have been a change in 
audience measurement techniques. The decline in Thames' industry NAR percentage in the 
year ended 31 March 1985 was in part attributable to a kiss of transmission arising from two 
separate local industrial disputes m the autumn of 1984. On the second occasion, when the 
action taken was in breach of national agreements, Thames' loss of revenue was mitigated by 
die maintenance of a transmission service operated by management. Since June 1985 industry 
NAR has shown strong growth and Thames' share has recovered. 

Ap pr ox ima tely 34 per cent ofTharaes’ advertising revenue is earned in the last quarter of each 
calendar year. Revenue in each of the other quarters is approxim ately equal ~ ' 

Audience research 

Thames uses extensive market research information, including d emo g rap hic analysis of the 
population, to aid the scheduling iff programme* for transmission. This information is also an 
important factor in targeting specific audience groiqft, especially since the introduction of the 
Fourth Channel. 

The table befow shows the audience foare of Thames and the Fourth Channel during Thames' 
transmission hours for die first five months of 1986 (die latest available figures) with 
comparable figures since 1982 (before the Fourth Channel commenced broadcasting). As 
Thames sells airtime on tbeFourth Channel, the proportion of the viewing audience in the 
London area available to advertisers through che Thames sales force Is now between 50 and 60 
percent.

Thames Television International 

Tha mes established an Overseas Programme Sales Department in 1972. Rom 1973 until 1983 
ill operated the o v erseas progra mme sales badness on behalf of Thames; in 1983 it began 
trading rat its own account. TTI is the largest international distributor ofjxogramme rights in 
the network and has licensed programmes for oansoisaieo in countries throughout- the wodd. 
Turnover has increased from £1 1.8 miOton in die year ended 31 Match 1982 to £24-0 million 
in the year ended 31 Marti 1986. In the principal markets sales aretw^onateddirtKi^i agents. 

Sole of Thames programme rights 

Thames continually adds to TTTs catalogue of programmes. These program mes have been 
licensed in 126 countries to broadcasters and cable Television s uppl iers on the basis of a 
specified number of transmissions over a limited period of time. TTI has had considerable 
success in exploiting this catalogue, notably in North America and Australia. 

In the United Scares, Benny Hill is a household name as a result of the sale of 85 half hour 
programmes to approximately 100 commercial tel evisio n stations, and sales ' of 'The Benny 
Hill Show” have made a significant contribution to TTTs profits over the last fiveyeao. 

Thames' programmes such as “Rumpole of che Bailey", “Reilly, Ace of Spies”, “The Agatha 
Christie Hour” and “A Voyage Round my father” have been sold to the Public Broadcasting 
Service in die United States. The new John Mortimer series "Paradise Postponed" and the 
television film of Graham Greene's “Monsignor Quixote", starring Alec Guinness and Leo 
McKern, are expected to have their first showing in the United States later this. year. “The 
World at War”, “Edward and Mrs . Simp son", “Hollywood, die Silent Yeas" and “Crime Inc." 
are amongsr the most successful of l i i's sales to commercial television in the United States. 
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation buys a range of Thames programmes including 
documentaries, schools and adult education as wefl as entertainment- The “Minder” series is 
currently one of th e most popular drama programmes in . Australia and die repeat potential is 
considerable. TTI also has a strong record of sales to die Australian comm ercial networks. 

“The Benny Hill Show" was awarded a special prize at the Momrenx Festival in 1985 fra- the 
past Golden Rose winner which had been seen in most countries around the world. 

Eapioitootm of p r o gr amm e formats 

This is a relatively new business in which TTI has played a pioneering role. It involves the 
marketing of programme formats to overseas broadcasters (principally United States television 
networks) and then, with local pa r tner s , undertaking the production and distribution of new 
series. Thames' “Man about the House" series has been successfully translated into “Three’s 
Company" which has achieved very high audience ratings in die United States. More than 200 
half hour episodes of chis programme and its derivatives were produced for Capital Cities/ ABC, 
Inc. (formerly American Broadcasting Company). After network transmission in the United 
States the series became available for uc ensin g to local stations and overseas broadcasters and, 
continues to make a substantial profir fbr TTL A number of other programme formats are being 
exploited in this way and TTI also has a development agreement with die CBS Television 
Network on new comedy formats. 

Sale of tfccl [Kory ptugnuiirne rights ' 

TTI distributes the rights in a number of programmes produced by third parties, ill has sold 
more than 900 half four episodes of the daytime drama “Capit ol", w hich is produced in die 
United States, and is negotiating to sell a further 900 half hours. TIT compiles and distributes 
“Big League Soccer" using material provided by the network arid die BBC and holds die 
contract for the overseas distribution of network events. 

Exploitation of ancillary rights 

Additional income is g enerat e d from die sale of books, records, toys and other licensed 
products, based on Thames’ programmes, as weO as by cassettes and videodiscs for die hone 
video market. Bar example “DBngermouse”, the animated series produced by Cosgrove Hall, 
generates income from die sale of licensed products including children's wear, soft toys and 
board and computer games. 

TTI has a joint venturewith Methuen General Books, a division ofAssocioied Book Publishers 
(UK) limited, through which teievisioo “tie- in" books are p ub lished in the United Kingdom 
under the “Thames-Methuen" imprint. Over 100 books are currently in print ran g in g from 
picture books based on “The Wind in the Willows” to hardback tides such as “The World at 
War" and “The English House". 

“Thames Video" is the trademark for TTl’s home video catalogue which numbers more Ann 
fifty tides. Titles are available in North America. Australia, die United Kingdom arei Western 
Europe through local distributors. In May 1986 TTI and Funuevision Limited, a subsidiary of 
Prestwich Holdings pic, announced die establishment of the Thames Video Collection to be - 
mar keted through retail outlet*. 

Prafimune librcn 

The library available to 1 T7 contains several thousand foure of programmes. The majority of 
p ro g r a mm es were produced by Thames, Eiac on Fi lms or Cosgrove Hall and were previously 
transmitted on ITV or the Fourth Channel. TTI also acquires rights to programmes made 
either in the United Kingdom or overseas by independent producers ar other broadcasters. TTI 
has been granted rights for due overseas distribution ofThames' prog ramm es, such rights being 
subject to any limitations imposed by tights folders of material included is the programmes. 

As Thames writes off the entire cost of its own productions and film rights on fine transmission 
in the United Kingdom, no capital value is attributed to the rights granted to TTI. The value to 
Thames of the library is therefore that of a pool of prog ram mes which is available for further 
transmission in die United Kingdom and the future income stream which on be generated - 
through overseas distribution of the contents.

Over this period the turnover of Thames and its subsidiaries has grown at a axnpound annual 
tare cf 11 . 6 per cent. This growth has been assisted by the contribution from the sale of airtime 
"on the fourth Channel which began broadcasting in November 1982. 

Tbe seasonal nature of advertising revenue means that the pattern of turnover has been as 
follows: v jjiiu l 


First half 
Second half 


-This -pattern means that the- cash requirements of the Company are also seasonal and 
si gnific a n t bank bon o win gs have occurred during the autumn months of each year. 

As Thames’ costs are not related to revenue in the short to medium term, changes in revenue 
can have a significant impacrw profits. 

The -year ended 31 March 1983 wa the first foil year cf operation of die new franchise under 
which Thames’ hours of broadcasting and transmission area were reduced. It was also the 
period in which Thames was -first required to make a substantial contribution towards the 
Fourth Charmd, which commenced broadcasting and generating advertising revenue only in 
thesecond Iwlf ofThamerf financial year. These were the principal factors leading to the foil in 
Thames' profitability in that year. Since that time Thames has been able to make increasing 
use cf die opportunities for the sale of airtime cm tbe fourth Channel particularly as Channel 4 
has attracted a significant share of audience in the London area, in addition, Channel 4 now 
provides 8 profitable outlet for Thames' programmes. 

United Kingdom trading results in the year ended 31 March 1985 were adversely affected by 
the decline in industry NAR in the second half cf the year and by a foil in Thames’ industry 
NAR per c entage which was in part attributable id losses in revenue resulting from two local 
industrial dispures. 

Ill has made an important contribution to profits over the period. The movement of sterling 
against the dollar over the four years ended 31 March 1985 was a favourable influence on 
p rofitability as sales are generally denominated m United States dollars. The income from the 
Three's Company” format arising from sales to local stations in the United States was 
pamewbriy high in die year ended 31 March 1985. The strengthening of sterling against the 
dollar from SI. 15, as at 31 March 1985, to $1.48, as at 31 March 1986, and a foil in revenue 
from die sale of programme formats reduced TTTs profits for the year ended 31 March 1966. 
At die time the current franchise was granted die BA expressed its concern chat Thames, as a 
leading Programme Contractor, should remain conscious of the importa n ce of cost control. 
Thames has a sustained record since then of producing programmes at or within budgeted levels 
(/cost. In addition, increasing attention h» been directed to the containment of other costs, 
including overtime payments where particular pr o gi ess has been made within the last two 
years. The BA has advised Thames that it believes that rfae steps ta k en by Thames to bring 
about cost savings through effective management control have i mp ort an t implications for the 
development of independent television and reflect die determination ofThames’ management 
to take account of the views of the then Chairman of the 4BA at the time of the last franchise 
renewal 

The costs (/Thames’ own productions are charged against United Kingdom income m die year 
of firat transmission. Large budget productions, such as “Reilly, Ace of Spies" and "Paradue 
Postponed" may therefore have a material effect on the profit and loss account in a single year. 
However, Thames expects that such productions will generate income over a number of years 


There has bees no change in die method of computation of charges for levy during the five 
years ended 31 Match 1986. Liability to levy in any- year has been dependent on profits 
generated in ihe United Kingdom- 

The effective corporation tax rate has historically been above the bask corporation tax rate due 
tDpcnnanent dbaDowaUe expenditure incurred by Thames, including certain expenses and 
depredation on buUdinjp nor eligible for capital allowances. It is estimated that die effecti v e 
corporation tax rate applicable to Thames in the current financial ‘year will be approxi ma tely 
373 per cent. This race has been used in calculating notional earning per share in “Key 

mfrw nwriftfi" . 

During die period from 31 March 1982 co 31 March 1986 net tangible assets have increased 
from £10.3 million to £31.3 million, an annual compound growth rare of 32.0 per cent At 
31 Match 1986 Thames had net tangihle assets of 65.6p per share. 


PREMISES, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT 

Thames has television studio and broadcasting facilities at Euston and Teddingmn. outside 
broadcast facilities at Han worth and office accommodation at Tottenham Coon Road in 
Central London. Particulais of these and other Thames properties are given in paragraph 7 of 
“Statutory and general information”. Thames' head office is at the Euston Centre. 

Richard Ellis, Chartered Surveyors, have valued ThamesT properties as at 3 1 March 1986- The 
valuation showed across surplus of £3. 173 million over the net book value at 31 March 1986 of 
£10.117 miHfotv. This surplus has been incorporated in the account as at that date. At die 
same time Richard Ellis valued the pr op erties ofThames on an alternative use basis at £7-495 
million. 

Thames has made a substantial i n ve st ment in technical equipment. Principal items of such 
equipment include television cameras and monitors, videotape recorders, outside broadcast 
vehicles and sound equipment. Thames has an obligation under the terms of its franchise to 
maintain hi^rechnical standards. The Company's engineering department conducts research 


invcxiucui. ui icumiuu equipment. Biauunicu ui uuurri ui loc year cuucu ji ivwui 

1986, Capital expenditure on technical equipment a expected to continue at a similar level. 

Ac 31 March 1986 Thames had £6.5 million of commitments for capital expenditure, 
including projects nor yet contracted. All such expeadituxe will be in the United Kingdom and 
will be financed from the Company's own resources ot by leasing. 


PROSPECTS 

Trading in the current financial year has statced wdL Thames’ NAR in April 1 986 was 22 per 
cent- higher than in April 1985. Tto improved perionoanoe was maintained in May 1986. 

The recent proposal fin- changes in levy described above may adversely affect Thames’ earnings 
growth in die short term but the Director believe that the benefit resulting from die reduction 
in rise rare of levy mi relevant United Kingdom profits wtlL in dae medium twm, exceed die 
amount cf levy to be paid on overseas profits. 

The primary corporate objective of the Board ofThames Is id secure renewal of b franchise for 
the London area in 1990. The DirectDts are confident that Thames has met, aid can continue 
to meet, dteaiiient requirements ofthe BA fijraProgiainme Contractor. However, the tenns 
of the new franchises will not be known until advertised by die IBA; this is expected to be in 
early 1988- Hie Direccots have noted the speech on 6 May 1986 at the Royal Television 


Society by dte Director General of the IBA in which he said “die strength, vitality and future of 
ITV depends on its regional character. By -and large, I think that the BA has got the 
programm e companies’ contract areas about right. Before the next contract round, however, 
those who want to see any change in the regional geography of die system will be able do put 
their views forward- But I would oppose tinkering about with the s y stem, and still more with 
structural changes, unless there was undeniable advantage on grounds of serving the public 
good - and strengthening the system. " 

Thames' ability to sell airtime and its ri^its of access to ITV for its programmes are dependent 
on its franchise. If the franchise were not renewed this would have a fundamental effect on the 
business of the Company. Nevertheless, Thames' programme production capabilities, 
including two studio complexes and technical equipment, and the progr a mme library would 
remain as assets available for uk by Thames. In such circumstances exploitation or realisation 
of the studios and the library in the United Kingdom and overseas would, under the current and 
proposed regulations,' be free of levy. 

The Directors of Thames recognise that the Company faces a changing environment for 
broadcasting with increasing competition from satellite and cable services. This emphasises 
die importance of Thames’ policy of producing high quality programme* competitively and 
efficiently. The management ofThames is therefore concentrating on maintaining this high 
quality whilst reducing costs. The DiieetOis believe that this Will enable the Company to take 
advantage of new opportunities in the United Kingdom and overseas created by the increased 
demand for programmes likely to flow from die development of cable television and satellite 
broadcasting. Thames will continue to invest in the latest technology which, together with the 
talents and professional skills available to the Company for programme production, gives die 
Directois confidence in the future quality of programming. Thames is also well -placed to 
employ in specialised marketing skills, for example in the sale of airtime,- to work with new 
entrants into die industry. 

The Directois continues investigate a number of opportunities for involvement in satellite 
broadcasting. In doing so their primary concern is to increase profitability. Proposals 
considered in the past have nor met this criterion ro the satisfaction of the Directors bur they 
now believe that more attractive opportunities are becoming available. Thames has agreed, 
although detailed terms remain to be settled, to acquire an option to subscribe for 10 per cent, 
ofthe equity ofthe company to be formed as a result ofan agreement bet we en The Independent 
Television 5upercbannel Limited and Music Channel Limited. This company is intended to 
provide an entertainment service, hugely of British television programmes, delivered by 
satellite to European cable networks. 

The Peacock Committee was established by the Home Secretary in March 1985 to review the 
financing of tbe BBC and to assess the effect of introducing a d vert isin g or sponsorship on the 
BBC as an alternative to or substitute for the income from the licence fee. Thames and ITCA 
have given evidence to the Peacock Committee, whose report is expected to be published in 
July 1986. 

The broadcasting industry operates in a constantly changing environment. The Directors are 
confident that Thames is well placed to respond to this challenge and that Thames can 
continue ro expand and build on its position as a leading independent television contractor. 


DIVIDENDS AND DIVIDEND FORECAST 


The Old inary shares being offered for sale will entitle the holders to receive dividends in 
respect ofthe financial year ending 31 March 1987. The Directors forecast that, in die absence 
of unforeseen circumstances, the dividend for the year ending 31 March 1987 will not be less 
than 9. 5p per share of which 3.0p will be paid as an interim dividend in January 1987 and 6-5p 
wifl be recommended for payment as a final dividend in July 1987. The Directois expect that 
dividends will continue to be paid In jammy and July in each year.

THE TIMES THURSDAY JUNE 19 1986 



ENERAL APPOINTMENTS 


is a mystery to most 


people. Beryl Dixon 


examines the scope and 
opportunities offered 


by this profession. 




Few people know whal an actuary does, 
and most of those probably hold two 
popular conceptions. One. that actuaries 
are well paid, and two that they shut 
themselves away from mankind spend- 
ing their days peering at life expectancy 
tables. 

The first is trite. The career, while not 
reaching the heights of some current City 
salaries can be. lucrative. And the 
second? Given that the Institute of 
Actuaries defines the work as “applying 
theories of probability and compound 
interest and statistical techniques to 
practical problems." it does not sound 
wildly exciting. 

But “No" says John Waugh of the 
Institute, ‘in pure research one could be 
a hermit with a computer, but nearly all 
actuaries must be able to communicate — 
with clients or colleagues.” 

The truth is that like most jobs, there is 
no standard profile. Much actuarial work 
is concerned with long-term financial 
contracts such as life assurance or 
pension schemes. Sixty per cent of 
actuaries work for insurance companies, 
with a further 20 per cent in consulting 
practices. 10 per cent in pensions and 
insurance broking, and the remainder 
divided between the Stock Exchange, the 
Government Actuary's Department, in- 
dustry. commerce and lecturing. Some of 
these engage in pure research; others are 
managers. 

Consultants are constantly talking to 
diems. Senior actuaries in companies 
must be able to express themselves at 
management meetings. The “appointed” 
actuary in a life office needs to explain 
things to colleagues unfamiliar with 
statistics. This is a problem common to 
all actuaries - that of communicating 
with people, many at senior manage- 
ment level. Top managers who are 
experts in their own fields but not at 
home with mathematics, may resent any 
implied superiority on the part of the. 
actuary’- 
ll is a small profession. About 1.500 
qualified actuaries work in the UK and 
between 700 and 800 British actuaries in 
other countries. But given the present 
shortfall at all levels, good actuaries have 
no difficulty in selecting the right 
company and the right environment 
Many move from straight actuarial work 
into general management and many are 
directors of. their companies. 

With the highest percentage of actu-

Although one or two papers are generally 
regarded as the hardest, not all students 
find the same papers difficult. 

The reason students find the exams 
taxing is described by the faculty and the 
institute to be' that common to mast 
professions — students constantly under-

broking, in advising on the merits of 
different schemes. In the Government 
Actuary's Department, actuaries advise 
the Government on public sector pen- 
sions and social security and act as 
consultants to nationalized industries. 

It is not necessary to be a trained 
mathematician to qualify, although most 
actuaries have degrees in moths or 
statistics — and the training is hard. It is 
essential fo become a lei low of the 
Institute of Actuaries in London or the 
Faculty of Actuaries in Edinburgh. Their 
qual ideations arc of equal status but each 
body functions independently and their 
examination structures differ slightly. 

Most English students choose the 
institute and most Scottish students the 
faculty, but this is not always the case. 

There is no formal period of articles. 
Trainees may be graduates in any subject 
“with a significant mathematical 
content", or in any subject at all 
provided that they have a high grade A 
level or Higher in maths. Alternatively, 
A level entrants with maths passes may 
sit the exams at their own pace, subject to 
restrictions on the number of papers 
attempted at one time. 

The average length of time taken to 
qualify is seven years but an ambitious 
graduate could do it in two. and it has 
been known to take 2U! Rumour has it 
that the actuarial exams are the hardest 
of any profession. The failure rate is 


Even if an employer grants study leave 
it is a lonely way to qualify and one that 
needs great self-discipline. Graduates 
may lind the going easier since the 
introduction last year of (wo postgradu- 
ate courses which give exemption from 
some of the exams. Most students now 
un these courses arc sponsored by 
employers. 


Hilary Flower and James Allwood arc 
actuarial students with the same compa- 
ny. the TSB Trust Company in Hamp- 
shire. Bolh arc unusual. Hilary, a 
cheerful extrovert, has a degree in 
economics and statistics rather than in 
maths. She chose this career because she- 
“wanted to work with figures and 
statistics". But although happy to work 
on her own initiative she would not like 
working alone all the time. She likes to 
feel part of a team in a small department 
and enjoys the contact she has with the 
company's insurance representatives. 


James, with excellent grades in maths, 
further maths and physics, turned down 
a university place and joined the 
company straight from the local college. 
Eighteen months into his training, and 
with several of the exams under hts belt, 
he has no regrets. He is unusual, since 
most 18 year olds in his position would 
have opted for university. 

But bolh he and Hilary had bad 
enough of full-time education — Hilary 
having rejected any careers requiring 
postgraduate courses. Both are pleased to 
have found a professional training which 
can be combined with working, “ft is real 
work.” ‘ says Hilary “wr’re no 1 
supermini ary trainees. We are responsi- 
ble for real projects.”

supply a full C.V. and recent photograph to Box

SPORT 


THE TIMESTHURSPAY JUNE 19 1986 


THIRD DAY OF ROYAL ASCOT 

Conditions set fair for 
valiant Longboat 
to carry off Gold Cup 


A late change of plan means 
that Robert Songster and Bar- 
n. Hills will try to win the 
Ascot Gold Cup a third lime 
in as many years today. The 
last owner-trainer combina- 
tion to achieve the feat was 
Gerald Oldham and Francois 
Boutin in the late Seventies. 
But they relied upon the same 
horse — Sagaro — each lime. 

With Gildoran. the winner 
of the race for the past two 
seasons, retired to stud in 
Australia. Messrs Sangster 
and Hills are now pinning 
their hopes on Seismic Wave 
instead of running him in the 
shorter Hardwicke Stakes to- 
morrow as was originally their 
intention. 

However, if form at the 
highest level means anything 
at all Seismic Wave should 
not beat Longboat who is my 
selection. 

Runner-up in the race 12 
months ago. when he finished 
like an express train only half 
a length behind Gildoran, 
Longboat had Seismic Wave. 
Eastern Mystic and Tale Qua- 
le directly’ behind him when 
he won the Henry II Stakes at 
Sandown last month. 

After that race Pat Eddery, 
who is in irrepressible form at 
present intimated that he 
thought that he could beat 
Longboat next time on East- 
ern Mystic, provided he rode 
him the way he did at York in 
May when he beat Seismic 
Wave in the Yorkshire Cup 
instead of making as much use 
of him early on as he did at 
Sandown. 

Nevertheless. I still believe 
that it goes against the grain to 
oppose Longboat, who will be 
entirely at ease racing on the 
prevailing fast ground. So 1 
take Eastern Mystic to come 
second to Longboat this lime. 

Those with long memories 
will recall Ore winning the 
Queen's Vase in 1981 and the 
Queen Alexandra Stakes the 
following year. In the mean- 
time his efforts to lift the Cup 
have resulted in fourth place 
in 1983 and second two 
seasons ago. 

That win on soft ground at 
Haydock last month proved 


By Mandarin (Michael Phillips) 

that Ore is no back number, 
even at the age of eight, but he 
may just lack Longboat’s zip. 

If there is a surprise in store it 
could be sprung by the filly 1 
Want To Be. despite the fact 
she finished last behind Long- 
boat at Sandown. Last season 
she finished second in the 
French St Leger having won 
the Park Hill Stakes at 
Doncaster.

J Bteasdute. 13 from 103. 1 2.6%. 

Gesedeh, who is a half-sister 
to the dual Gold Cup winner 
Ardross. is taken to win the 
Ribblesdale Stakes and so 
make amends for that luckless 
run in the Oaks. 

While I am not suggesting 
that Gesedeh would have 
beaten Midway Lady at Ep- 
som. or Untold and Maysoon 
for that matter, I am sure that 
she would have finished much 
closer than fifth, beaten a total 
of 13 lengths, if only she had 
not been baulked so badly 
half-way down Tattenham 
Hill when she ran into the 
back of the weakening 
Davemma. 

Earlier in the season 
Gesedeh had beaten Santiki 
and Mill on the Floss at 
Newmarket. Mill on the Ross 
then beat Singletla in the Oaks 
trial at Lingfield before refus- 
ing to go into the stalls for the 
start of the Oaks itself. 

Signficantly, Willie Carson 
is on the Cheshire Oaks 
winner Salchow instead of her 
stable companion Pilot Bird, 
who also looked pretty accom- 
plished when winning first 
lime out at Newbury. 

Those who bought shares in 
the young stallion Sharpo 
when he was syndicated and 


retired to the Woodlands Stud 
in Newmarket four years ago 
already have good reason to 
feel pleased with their 
investment 

From his first crop of 
runners Sharpo has already 
got one Royal Ascot winner, 
the Coventry Stakes scorer. 
Cutting Blade. By this evening 
there should be cause for 
further celebration in the 
Sharpo camp because another 
member of that first crop. 
Risk Me looks to have an 
outstanding chance of win- 
ning the Norfolk Stakes fol- 
lowing successive victories 
over today's distance at 
Sandown. 

His trainer Paul Kelleway 
remains adamant that Risk 
Me is the fastest horse he has 
had anything to do with, and 
remember he did saddle Afri- 
can Song to win the King's 
Stand Slakes at this meeting 
six years ago. 

Risk Me has already beaten 
Zaibaq once. While I have the 
greatest respect for both Siz- 
zling Melody and Dominion 
Royale I expea him to put 
them in their place too and he 
is napped to give Eddery 
another boost in his attempt 
to win the Ritz Club Charity 
Trophy, which goes annually 
to the leading jockey at the 
meeting. 

Eddery has a less discernible 
chance of winning the 
Chesham Stakes as well on 
Shabib .but 1 still have a quiet 
fancy for this promising son of 
Northern Baby. Albasar, Gulf 
King, Mazilier and Mister 
Majestic all have more obvi- 
ous credentials. 

Caught in the right mood. 
Bridesmaid is quite capable of 
winning the Cork and Orrery 
Slakes as she proved at 
Haydock last month when she 
swept passed Sperry. Tussac 
and Pilot Jet in the last furlong 
of the. Sandy Lane Stakes. 

Finally, I give the recent 
easy Epsom winner First Divi- 
sion a good chance of winning 
the King George V Handicap 
even though today's race rep- 
resents his severest test to 
date.

Dunlop pair dominate Hunt Cup 


By Michael Seely 

John Dunlop, the talented 
Arundel trainer, accomplished 
die remarkable feat of saddling 
the first and second in the Royal 
Hint Cup oa another perfect 
Jane afternoon at Ascot 
yesterday. 

The two stable companions 
fought OOt a thr illing finish dear 
of their 30 rinds before Richard 
Quinn drove Patriarch past the 
post threeq Barters of a length in 
front of Willie Carson on Sflah 
Kalem. This was the first time in 
living memory that a miner bad 
provided both the winner and 
ramer-op in this always fiercely 
contested handicap. 

Having had his choice of 
mounts beforehand, Carson was 
adamant that Sihb bad 

been onlacky. “I was just com- 
ing to win my race wbee the 
horse went lame," claimed the 
bustling Scot in the unsaddling 
enclosure. 

“I wouldn't be surprised if he 
was right," said Dunlop, “but 
only tomorrow morning win tclL 
Myself I couldn't have split 
them beforehand. Patriarch 
loves a straight track. He'd ran a 
marvellous race when second in 
the Newbury Spring Cop and 
had been nearly knocked over at 
Kempton. 

“ On the other hand, Syiah 
Kalem had won his Sandown 


race in tremendous style and 
both horses had pleased me in 
their preparation. However, be- 
ing do admirer of jockeys judge- 
ments, I probably would have 
gone for Patriarch!” Dunlop 
said. 

Once again those who rely on 
condition race form when 
assessing the handicap burnt 
their fingers badly when 
Hadeer. backed down from 12-1 


By for the most impre ssi ve 
winner during another feast of 
high-class raring was Sonic 
Lady in the Coronation Stakes. 
Starting at 15-8 on after her 
victory in the Irish 1,000 Guin- 
eas, Sheikh Mohammed's Nnre- 
yev filly swept to a comfortable 
win over EmHa and Something 
Special, thereby g i v ing Michael 
Stome his first success at this 
year's Royal meeting. 


Carson banned for seven days 

Willie Carson was suspended for seven days lor bis careless 
riding of Vouchsafe in the Bessborough Stakes at Ascot 
yesterday (Michael Seely writes). After Vouchsafe had passed 
the post a neck in front of Convinced with Russian Noble only a 
head further away in third place, the stewards found that 
Vouchsafe had not only interfered with the third horse, biit also 
with Stately Form, who finished fifth. Carson’s suspension will 
run from June 27 to July 3 inclusive and means he wifi miss the 
Irish Derby. 


to 5-1 favouritism during the 
day, had -never been seen with a 
chance at any stage of the race. 

Recently, Hadeer had divided 
Pennine Walk and Cliveden in 
the Diomed Stakes at Epsom, 
and judged on that naming, had 
looked leniently treated with 8st 
!3!b to carry. “I Just can't 
understand h," said a mystified 
Clive Brittain, the favourite's 
trainer. 


At Newmarket in May, Sonic 
Lady had spoiled her chance by 
running too freely before finish- 
ing a dose third to Midway 
Lady and Maysoon in foe 1,000 
Guineas and consequently had 
been fitted with a special bridle 
before her win at the Curragh. 
“It was Cbe bit that (fid if again,” 
said Walter Swinbern, “She 
tried to pull a Little early on, but 
she soon settled beautifully”. 

Together with that brilliant 


sprinter. Maxwell, Sonic Lady 
most be the fastest fiHy that 
Stoote has trained in his 14-year 
career ana trainer. 

In the opening Jersey Stakes, 
Guy Harwood, who, Eke Stoote 
is always a trainer to follow at 
Ascot, stru ck his fast Mow of 
this particular meeting when 

Grerille Starkey rode 

to a 2 Vi length victory over Brave 
Owen. Delta, foe 100-30 
favourite, proved a bitter dis- 
appointment mad finished at the 
rear Of the field. 1 just can’t 
understand ft," said Swinbnm, 
“she was never going at any 
stage of the race". 

Brave Owen was mdneky in 
fog* Steve Canthen became 
"trapped behind a wall of hoses 
and had to switch his mount to 
the outside before attempting to 
launeba challenge. But Cliveden 
had shown a fine burst of 
finishing speed to go and win his 
race. 

Pat Eddery continues to domi- 
nate the meeting and the man in. 
form became ah odds-on chance 
to become the leading rider when 
partnering Forest Flower to an 
astonishingly easy victory over 
Propensity in foe Queen Mary 
Stakes. “She must be really 
good,” said the jockey, “they 
went like bats oat of hell but 
Forest Flower was always 
cantering and just ran away from 
them up the MIL”

• The 20-lengtb victory of 
Coinage in the Hunsley Beacon 
Maiden Stakes at Beveriey yes- 
terday was a special occasion to 
two people. It was the first 
success Mrs James de Rothchild 
has had since moving her six 
horses to Fulke Johnson 
Houghton from Bruce Hobbs at 
the start of this season; and it 
was possibly the last winner the 
trainer's assistant, Mark Wil- 
kinson. win saddle for Johnson 
Houghton before he starts train-

Wilkinson, aged 28. who has

Edward Courage's old yard in 
Banbury. He will begin with 
about 15 horses, all jumpers.

Hoping to 
resolve 
old 

conflict 

By Conrad Voss Bark 

The cosffict between dry fly 
and" bait fishermen has been 
going, on lor a long time. 
Probably about a 100 years, ever 
since Halford first produced the 
dry fly code in 1886. Bait 
fishermen, and indeed some 
reservoir fishers, have always 
expressed a mBd contempt for 
chalk stream purists. Latest to 
add Ids . contempt is Barrie 
Richards, a pike specialist. In a 
book just published. Angling: 
Fundamental Principles 
(Boydell, £1255), he says spin- 
* « ought to be allowed on the 
uk streams and that the dry 
fly code which restricts nymph 
fishing is “really rather fumy”, 
laughter funny? No. Fanny 
peculiar. 

It looks as though bait fisher- 
men really do Jive in a separate 
world from the fly fisherman, 
and cannot get around to under- 



stand the dry fly code. Even 
reservoir fishermen have been 
contemptuous of ft. Yon might 
expect die dry fly men to hit 

don't At fth yu^s^nnttl 
dinner . of one of the most 
dedicated dry fly dobs in En- 
gland, the Piscatorial Society, 
two of the main speakers went 
ant of their way to be nice to bait 
fishermen. A senior member of 
the society. Dr Harold 
Ttairlaway, deplored caffing 
them “coarse” fishermen and 
thought that 1 ‘freshwater 
fishermen” would be much bet- 
ter. He did, however, hive that 
over the years foe competitive 
dement in Ashing would 
disappear. 

The chief guest at this 150fo 
anniversary dinner. General Sir 
John Hackett, who fishes m foe 
Cotswohls, agreed. He disliked 
foe present sharp distinction 
between game fish and other 
fish. To go fishing, he said, was 
to find solace for anxious minds 
and for those who found life

'-" finals, at Redlpnd Green for 
^ the second year running in the 
/Bristol Trophy yestenJay. 

The contest, which took 

- about as many fluctuations as 
. the tide in a single day in the 
^ Solent, also contained a mo- 
-ment of comic aggravation 

■ just after theunSeeded British 
’j No. 2 had recovered from 

lour games down to 4-4 in ibe 
first set. 

' “An edd lady started muck- 
. ing about with her coat and 
-talking right behind me, aim I 
^ missed the same shot three 
times after that,” Bates said. 

' The incident/or- at least his

fetes said. He was thankfully 
unaware that later' mYthe

jjis game, 


Today, on his 34th birth- 
day, he plays. Bud Schultz, a 
.skyscraper American, and if 
he wins, he could play the 
favourite, Henri Leconte, of 
France. Leconte won 6-4, 6-3 
against Mike Leach, an Amer- 
ican with a big service, and 
attributed his improvement in 
concentration to his wife and 
to fatherhood. His liking for 
grass was once again impres- 
sively evident. • 

Two other Wimbledon

Defeated 
Dune 
down but 
not out 

Jo Dune denied that die bad 
“choked” after losing a match 
that she should have won at the 
Pflkington women’s champion- 
r ships >1 Eastbourne yesterday. 
Dune, aged 25, lost 1-6, 6-4, 6-4 
to Gahnela Sabatini, of Argen- 
tina, in the third round after 
leading 4-2, 40-15. on her own 
service in the final set and then 
having two break points for a 5- 
3 lead. 

“I didn't choke,” the Bristol 
woman said. “1 was going for 
my shots and things went badly 
at tbe wrong moment I have felt 
pretty good about my game this 
week and I'm not down in the - 
dumps. Now I'm just looking 
forward to playing well at 
Wimbledon.” 

Sabatini. who was 16 last 
month and is the 11th seed at 
Wimbledon, was delighted with 
her win. “Jo is a very good mss 
court player,” die said, Hjut 
when I was down in the final set 
I tried to play a little steadier 
and it worked.” 

Durie was philosophical 
about . defeat. Haoa 
MandHkova, seeded third at 
Wimbledon, was the reverse 
after losing 3-6, 7-5, 6-3 to the 
Californian, Robin White, in 
another third-round match. - 
Matxflikova was not in a talk- 
ative mood. like Durie she had 
her chance when leading 30-15 
on. White's service at 5-5 in the 
second set. But three wild shots 
changed the course of the match 
and White, ranked 24th in the 
world, wenton to ber “best ever 
. win.” 

-Britain have now fost all 
interest in the singles as Anne 
Hobbs was also beaten, losing 6- 
4, 6-1 in -56 minutes to tbe big- 
hitting Helena Sukova, of 
Czechoslovakia, who is the 
eighth seed at Wimbledon. To 
lose to Sukova was no disgrace 
but Hobbs was also hampered 
by a shoulder injury. She said: “I 



Smith lets 
South 
African off 
the hook 

Jonathan Smith's hopes of 
reaching Wimbledon faded at 
the last gasp at Roehampton 
yesterday. The Devon player, 
aged 31, only one match away 
from a place in the main draw 
next week, was beaten 3-6. 7-6, 
6-2, 6-4, by the South African, 
Kevin Moir, in the third round. 

The match hinged on the 
second set, when Smith bad 
three points for a two-set lead, 
but each time he failed to take 
advantage. . Moir, let off the 
hook, grew more confident as 
the match went on and he took 
the next two sets with little 
difficulty, although he needed a 
lucky net call to win the match. 

A loser’s cheque of £1 ,250 was 
of little consolation to Smith, 
who admitted: “It would have 
been a different story had I 
managed to take that second set. 
I thought 1 was the better player 
until then. But in the end it was 
fitted not to be my day

Ginteuders 
for the 
crown of 
Price 

By Peter Aykroyd 

Now that Hayley Price, the 
British women's champion, has 
. announced her retirement at the 
age of 19 after a' long and 
distinguished career. Interest is 
focussing oo possible successors 
(0 ber crown. Several contenders 

were under sontin y at the recent 
NatWest gymnastics display at 
Crystal Palace. Bat, as yet, no 
natural heiress to Miss Price 
stands oat in a wide group 
containing both talent and 
experience. 

Of veteran performers, Sally 
Lamer, Miss Price's colleague 
at the Red ditch and Bronggrore 
dub, and Jacqueline McCarthy, 
of Longbtnn. could make the 
strongest bid for the title. 

In the last year, two new- 
comers .to the British -senior 
squad made impressive inter- 
national debuts at the Montreal 
world championships. They are 
Stephanie Mickbun. of Ipswich, 
and Lisa Elliott, of Egbam, both 
of whom at 15 and 16 respec- 
tively have shown they have tbe 
ability and temperament to com- 
pete successfully at world-class 
leveL 

Other hopefuls on the na- 
tional scene must ifldnde Nancy 
Clarke, of Longbton, Laura 
Thomas, of Heathrow, and Lisa 
Law, of Leicester, die 1986 
Thames Television Jrarior Gym- 
nast of tbe Year. 

But at Crystal Palace Lisa 
Elliott caught the attention of 
knowledgeable watchers as be- 
ing dose to tbe aU-coaq ue r ing 
Sonet image of a true gymnast 
by figure, style, agility and an 
instinctive fed for dance. She 
may wdl have a sparkling and

. . By JohnGoodbody- 

The British CHympic Associ- 
ation yesterday moved into an 
era in which they are seeking a 
higher public and international 
profile by appointing John 
Boulter as their general 
secretary. 

Boulter, aged 45, a former 
Oxford University and Olympic 
800-metres runner, has been the; 
director of promotion, and ex- 
ternal relations with Adidas 
XJRance) fw ikHast Mqrearss ' 

Few people knowibc imer- 
■'national sporting scene- with 
'such intimacy: as Boulter, , who 
.speaks Bench and German 
-fluently and has attended events 
- at every major .sport except for 
. cricket, golf,- American- football 
and basebalL 

: He agreed yesterday that he 
. probably knows all tbe general 
secretaries of the 162 national 
Olympic committees, as welf a& 
the officials of tbe international 
federations with whom Adidas 
have had increasingly close 
relations because of the expan- 
sion of sponsorship. ■ 

-.. One of his main ambitions 
with be to restore Britain's 
i influence . in international af- 
fairs. .“I .warn. Britain to get back 
hs voice;” he raid. In the early 

■ 'seventies 14 Britons were either 
secretary or president of inter- 
national federations. Now there 
are only three. Boulter is ideally 
'suited for this task. 

t Boulter, who flew in from the 
World Cup yesterday for his 
'interview, was selected from a 
shortlist of six of whom two 
others are believed to have been 

■ David Teasdale, the assistant to 
the Sports Minister. , and Roger 

. Bottom ley, an experienced 
"administrator at both' national 
and regional level. There were 
150 written applications from a 
-total of 500 enquiries. 

Boulter, who has lived, in 
France for the last 14 years, said 
that he was happy to be return- 
ing honie. “There comes a time 
when yon need another chal- 
lenge. I want to help sport from 
the inside.” 

Boulter said that the domestic 
side of British sport was tbe area 
which be knew least about but 
that he was looking forward to 
encouraging the 28 sports which 
are represented at the BOA. 

• The position became vacant 
when Dick Palmer, an excellent 
general secretary for_ tbe last 
nine years, was appointed ad- 
viser to Olympic solidarity -with 
-the International Olympic 
Association. Boulter is expected 
to begin work in the autumn.

By Richard Eaton 

Nicholas had done his bit by 
winning bis seventh toss out of 
eight in the competition. Terry, 
Inevitably, was overshadowed 
by Greenidge but played some 
elegant off drives before Gray 
landed a yorker on his boot. 

Gray occasionally got -the ball 
to lift alarmingly - shades of 
what Marshall might do later — 
but was guilty of numerous no- 
balls, which helped keep 
Surrey’s morning over rate un- 
der 15 an hour. Doughty over- 
pitched and. was ^freely 
punished. His captain. Though, 
will forgive him after he caused 
Greenidge to edge a ball into his 
stumps as bepushed forward. 

Greenidge has now reached 
•90- four times' at the' May’s 
Bounty Ground in 10 matches 
but only once has he gone on to 
a century.. Greenidge hit a six 
and IS fours and from his cross 
reaction at his mistake, had set 
his sights. on making 300. 
Turner drove a catch to mid-off 
and the stage was set for' the 
fourth wicket pair. 

Nicholas, whose previous best 
championship score this year in 


JO attempts has been 26, twice 
pulled huge sixes against Need- 
ham. Pocodc and Needham did 
a lot of bowling in the afternoon 
which improved the over rate, 
but the conditions were against 
them. Nicholas finally chopped 
a ball from BickneD into his 
stumps.

Roebuck’s 

gamble 

backfires 

By Alan Gibson 

BATH: Somerset, with eight first 
innings wickets in hand, are 340 
runs Behind Northamptonshire. 

Somerset won the toss and 
pul Northamptonshire in, 
which was baffling on a dry day, 
on a pitch that has a notorious 
reputation for crumbling. Roe- 
buck, no doubt, ruminated 
amoire his theories and must 
have been quite happy when he 
had two out for 32 and not quite 
miserable even when he bad 
four out for 169. 

Cook was bowled by Garner 
at 12 and Larkins by Davis at 32 
but Boyd-Moss and Bailey pro- 
duced a stand. When Boyd- 
Moss was caught at long-off, 
against the subtie Marks, the 
score was 116. Davis bowled 
Bailey, who had been hatting 
steadily, to keep Somerset in the' 
situation. 

Capel and Wild, both born in 
Northampton, an unusual 
qualification in Northampton- 
shire cricketers, made a stout 
stand for the fifth wicket, batting 
with increasing confidence. 

It was another warm day and 
another large crowd attended. I 
cannot see that there is much 
force in the arguments, which 
can be heard quite loudly in 
Taunton, that the Bath Festival 
should be abolished. At tea, 
Northamptonshire were 257 for 
four after 74 overs, a reasonably 
brisk pace. Somerset did not 
quite seem to know what to do, 
as the afternoon wore on. It was 
not, as a Somerset member told 
me, a “dramatic” afternoon but 
the Northamptonshire support- 
ers, of whom quite a number 
have come down, had reason to 
be pleased with themselves at 
this stage. 

Roebuck kept changing his 
bowling, though his fields be- 
came increasingly defensive. 
Richards had a long spell, which 
he dearly enjoyed, especially 
when bowling his leg-breaks. 
Capel reached his 1 00. after 
some wobbles in the 90s. in the 
I01stover.lt was a good knock 
and Northamptonshire de- 
clared. Roebuck left the field 
with a look on his face which I 
can only describe as ruminative. 

These little things are sent to try 
us and he did not look much 
happier when he was one of the 
early Somerset wickets to fall.

Carr hits out for the cynics 


TRENT BRIDGE: Nottingham- 
shire. with all their second 
innings wickets in hand, lead 
Middlesex by 57 runs. 

Cynics, cogniscam of the ab- 
sence of Hadlee from one side 
and Emburey and Edmonds 
from the other, took one look at 
the Trent Bridge wicket yes- 
terday and had no doubts — the 
ball would be turning square by 
Friday lunchtime and 
Middlesex's quartet of seam 
bowlers were in for a frustrating 
time. 

The first conclusion may 
never be tested. The second was 
disproved immediately as Dan- 
iel and his colleagues went to 
work .with relish as they discov- 
ered the strip offered dramati- 
cally uneven bounce and 
enough movement to disconcert 
even the wary. 

By the time Nottinghamshire 
reached 192 they probably re- 
garded that tonal as representing 
comparative riches after their 
difficulties in the morning. Ely 
the dose it dearly did as 
Middlesex's depleted line-up 
found batting equally difficult, 
three wickets felling in three 
overs for the second time in the 
day as Pick and Cooper went to 


By Peter Ball 

work after tea. 

The first time it had occurred 
when Hughes ended tbe solid 
progress of Broad, splendidly 
taken at gully, and Robinson, 
the first of several victims oflow 
bounce, while Daniel exposed 
Randall's growing unease 
against real pace in between the 
fell of the two openers. 

From then on the batsmen 
were in the toil, only a regular 
diet of one loose delivery an 
over enabling Nottinghamshire 
to keep the score moving on. 
That provided no sustenance for 
Rice, who fell cheaply to a 
grotesque pull across the line, 
out Johnson and Birch steadied 
things until Johnson was taken 
offbatand pad at 111. - 

Birch, however, found sup- 
port from Scott, Pick and 
Hemmings to see his team- to 
one bonus point before Cowans, 
the least convincing bowler in 
the morning, polished off the 
innings to claim the best figures. 

That Middlesex even got as 
far as they did was due entirely 
to Canr, who again dem- 
onstrated that he is a worthy son 
of his father. Arriving in a crisis 
at 44 for four, he refused to be 
rattled, driving the bad balls 


hard for his eight fours and 
defending with composure to 
play the mqjor pan iu partner- 
ships with Radley and the 
younger Brown. He was dis- 
missed when be. for once with- 
out reaching the pitch, be drove 
to at backward point.

Measure for measure Records 


By Peter Marson 


A good hundred by Metcalfe, 
and a sound 76 In' Boycott,, 
stood at the centre of an 
especially satisfactory perfor- 
mance by Yorkshire at New 
Road, Worcester, yesterday. At 
the dose Yorkshire got to 337 
for seven and a maximum in 
bonus points. 

Yorkshire may have been 
surprised to have received an 
invitation to bat first on a good 
looking pitch. Pridgeon at once 
gave substance to Neale's theory 
by bowling Moxon, and though 
Pridgeon and McEwan , playing 
in Radford's place managed to 
derive sufficient assistance from 
the pitch to make Boycott and 
Metcalfe work hard to ensure 
survival, and at the same time 
score runs, the batsmen even- 
tually got the measure of the 
bowlers. At lunch.then, these 
two, matching stroke for stroke, 
and with a sprinkling of bound- 
aries, had gone past their half 
centuries as Yorkshire came in 
at 1 18 for one from 41 overs. 


At Gloucester, where Kent 
had chosen to bat first 
Gloucestershire's initial assult, 
in which Benson, Hinks and 
Tavare had fallen to Payne and 
Walsh for 54 runs meant that 
Taylor and Christopher 
Cowdrey had first to regroup 
before easing away from a 
defensive position- This they 
did, proceeding with the caution 
that is customary in these 
circumstances, with Taylor 
making 44 and Cowdrey 51 
between lunch and lea. 

Moseley's enatic. opening 
spell at St Helens, Swansea, 
where Warwickshire had been 
put in to bat. had Smith moving 
the wrong way and into trouble 
as he ducked bead first into a 
rising ball. Smith bravely stayed 
on to make eight out of 52 in 
partnership with Uoyd before 
retiring. When he reappeared 
later, at the fall of the sixth 
wicket. Glamorgan's bowlers 
had taken some stick, chiefly 
from Amiss.

By Michael Berry 

The ICC Trophy is fast 
emerging as a competition of 
new records. Not least is the 
unprecedented number of sun- 
filled hours, and another hot day 
yesterday in the Midlands saw 
several new bailing milestones. 

For die second time in five 
days the competition's record 
innings total was passed. Ldst 
Friday. Bermuda became- the 
first-ever country to top 400; 
yesterday, both Papua New 
Guinea and the Netherlands 
improved oo this performance. 
The Papuans, a happy and 
exuberant band, led the way 
with a massive 45S for nine off 
60 overs in their victory over 
Gibraltar at Cannock and 
Rugeley. Babani Harry, at 19 the 
youngest member of their party, 
scored 1 27 and Charles Amini, a 
recognized bowler, fell just short 
of his hundred, scoring 97. 
William Maha then took the last 
five Gibraltar wickets for a 
personal cost of 12 runs as they 
were dismissed for S6, the 
margin of victory. 369 runs, also 
being a new rccord- 

The Dutch opening pair of 
Steve Atkinson, belter known in 
England as a Minor Counties 
player with Durham, and Rob 
Lifmann shared an opening 
stand of 251 on the way to a 
total of 425 for four against 
IsraeL Atkinson made 162 and 
Lifmann 1 10. Lifmann thus 
becoming the first player lo 
score two centuries in ICC 
Trophy cricket. 

Elsewhere. Zimbabwe, the 
favourites, were struggling at 98 
for five against Argentina, at 
Fordhouses until Peter Rawson 
(125) and Gary Wallace (77) 
revived them with a sixth- 
wicket stand of 174. They 
finished with 357 for seven and 
then dismissed Argentina for 
ISO.

takes two teams to make an 
attractive match." 

Beckenbauer said. 

A goal two minutes from the 
end by Maithaeus enabled 
West (jermany to win 1-0 and 
qualify for a quarter-final lie 
against the host nation. Mexi- 
co. on Saturdav. “Morocco 
plaved more backwards than 
forwards and it made it very 
difficult for us." Beckenbauer 
added. 

The Germans did not help 
their own cause by missing 
two easy chances, while Mo- 
rocco could blame inept orga- 
nization for allowing 
Matthaeus to score with a free 
kick from 30 yards as extra 
time loomed. 

Beckenbauer refused to be 
critical of his team’s contribu- 
tion. “We knew it would be 
hard. You only had to look at 
Morocco’s group results 
against England, Poland and 
Portugal to see they are a 
strong side.” Jose Faria, the 
Morocco manager, was unim- 
pressed with the Germans and 
insisted England were the 
strongest side his team had 
met in Mexico. 


The Germans, who have 
never failed to reach at least 
the last eight in nine finals, 
must have had visions of a 
repeat of their embarrassing 
defeat by Algeria in 1982 as 
they fought to wrest control of 
the game from the stifling 
defensive play of Morocco. 

West Germany, for all their 
pressure, were able to create 
only two clear-cut chances, 
one in each half, and towards 
the end were reduced to 
bickering among themselves. 

About 1 1 million Germans 
stayed up late to watch the 
game on television — the 
largest viewer audience ever 
registered after midnight. Bi/d, 
the country's largest daily 
newspaper, reported that bars 
bad remained open well past 
normal closing time.

MicheL the French team chief, 
said the World Cup victory over 
Italy, the holders, showed bis 
team were hitting form on the 
way to their quarter-final 
against Brazil in Guadalajara on 
Saturday. “The French team are 
rediscovering their game, based 
on imaginauon and vivacity," 
he said. “For a long time we had 
complexes about the Italians. 
Today we didn't. That was 
perhaps the key to the match." 

Michel described Brazil as a 
brilliant team and said: “They 
have an economic and efficient 
game. They have always pos- 
sessed good players, it is another 
challenge. Every match presents 
itself as a final for us." He 
dismissed any notion, that 
Brazil's defence was vulnerable. _ 
“For 20 years people have been 
saying the Brazilian defence was 
bad but in my view during that 
period they've had one of the 
best defences in the world." 

Brazil have attracted a vast 
following in Guadalajara, but 
Michel said: “We adapted to 
Mexico City. We’ll have to 
adapt to Guadalajara; even it is 
the fiefdom of Brazil. 

Michel said that the decision 
by Carlos Esposito, the 
Argentinian referee, to book 
William Ayache. a defender, 
with a second yellow card - 
which puts him out of the 
quarter-final — was absurd. 


Queretaro (AP) — Sepp 
Piontek. the Denmark coach, 
has criticized FIFA for not 
suspending a Spanish player 
who received medication 
containing chemicals on FIFA's 
anti-doping list. Ram6n 
Caldera, a midfield player, re- 
ceived the medication in 
Guadalajara, where he was hos- 
pitalized with food poisoning 
FIFA fined the Spanish Foot- 
ball Federation 23.000 Swiss 
francs (£9,230) on Sunday but 
no action was taken against the 
player. Caldere, aged 27, who 
plays for Barcelona, was ex- 
pected to be in the Spanish team 
to play Denmark in a second- 
round match in Queretaro last 

ni fe Danish team did not file 
a protest but Piontek said: “it 
seems he' win be able to play. So 
why should we have these anti- 
doping rules?" 

• The defeated Uruguayan 
squad left for home today with 
their players and officials con- 
vinced they were victims of 
prejudice and bad refereeing 
throughout the World Cup. And 
Eugenio Figueredo, a team 
spokesman, denied reports that 
the Uruguayan directors had 
apologized to FIFA for their 
players’ behaviour. Uruguay, 
beaten 1-0 by Argentina on 
Monday, picked up nine cau- 
tions and two expulsions in their 
four matches and were fined by 
FIFA last weekend.

^ AH matches for June 14th 


Last night gave us the first of 
those irritating pointless dilem- 
mas that characterize big trie- 
vision sporting events. Ou which 
channel do you watch exactly 
the same pichvs that the other 
channel is showing? 

The BBC has a natural advan- 
tage with its absence of 
advertisements. The incessant 
witless repetition of advertisers' 
moron-fodder has become so 
mafh a part of life that if we are 
not careful, we forget to be 
insulted by h. Ultimately, j I_. 
suppose, the entire World Cup is 
about tiie sale of television 
advertising space. It is nice to 
escape it on BBC. 

Things could be worse than 
they are. In Hong Kong in 1982, 
20 minutes into each half they 
broke into live football trans- 
mission to give ns five solid 
min utes of adverts. Enraged 
millions compiled a list of the 
advertisers, vowing never to buy 
their prod nets: the mere sight of 
a packet of MAL-BO-LO ciga- 
rettes earned people white with 
rage before the competition was 
over. 

Advertisers are keen on what 
they call “the point of 
difference" between products. 
The commentators should be the 
most important point of dif- 
ference between the two chan- 
nels, bm here, we are comparing 
unsatisfactory with unsatisfac- 
tory. Barry Davies is the best of 



WORLD CUP TV 


Laurie McMenemy is a classic 
actor. As such, he has won. 
himself a reputation for being 
wise, shrewd, fair and percep- 
tive, with an excellent television 
manner, I wonder how on earth 
he managed it.

The most conspicuous point- 
of-diff between channels is the 
studio stuff. So far as anchor

excellencies: Brian Moore is

is Desmond Lynam for the BBC,

actually fenny. His air of being 
unable to take it all quite 
seriously is very cheering. 

But be has been given the 
most boring of pood its. Terry 
Venables, always looks as if he 
has 23 watches op bis sleeve for

perpetually on the point of

wondering whether or not he is a

sure that Kevin Keegan is. Brian 
Clough is, inevitably, ITVs star. 
Clough has tinned himself into 
the Malcolm Moggeridge of 
football: rider and wiser than 
ordinary people can possibly 
comprehend. He and Trevor 
Fronds, particularly in tandem, 
are the best of the studio 
pundits. Admittedly,- Mick

Toluca (AP) — Belgium is 
sending home Erwin 
Vandenbergh, their star for- 
ward, and Rene Vandereycken, 
the midfield veteran, for treat- 
ment of knee injuries. 

Both players were due to fly 
home yesterday. Leon Vlogaeru 
the team spokesman, said that 
Belgium would not ask the 
international ' football federa- 
tion. FIFA, for replacements. 

Vandenbergh and 

Vandereycken were part of the 
line-up of Guy Thys, the coach, 
in Belgium's 2-1 opening game 
defeat to Mexico. But they were

^Winning the World Cop does 
not make you safe from criti- 
cism. as AIT Ramsey discovered, 
but Ramsey's public relations 
could hardly hare been more 
strained even when he was 
winning. He was his own worst 
enemy, with not tbe first idea 
how to handle a P«*s con- 
ference. There are few who bare:

Mexico. He is a jouraaiist’sas 
well as a player's dream. The 
man’s relaxed, realistic adjust- 
ment to all the demands of his 
job is reflected in the wwldliness 
of his players. 

Regie's anxieties, for exam- 
ple. were mirrored in his play- 
ers, with Leeds and England. 
The tension has been sfanuany

most harmless of questions from 
Innocent Mexican journalists. 
Football is no longer a place for

weighing upon him: and he has 
not even played a match. You 
wonder if be should ever have 
left Luton. 

The hungry expectation of

with theory instead of instinct. 

“The problems we face are 
practical," be says. “We don't 
need psychologists to tell us 
about the anxie ti es of players, 
when we can see them for 
ourselves in the dressing room, if 
we look and if we know the 
game. Coaching is aliotat react- 
ing from day to day, the way 
France did by changing their 
marking to man-to-man against 
Russia, the way we had to at 
Bayern when we met the excep- 


tional Dutch and Belgian teams 
in the 1978s. 

“We as coaches have to take 
players as they are. not as we 
would like them to be. England 
improved against Poland when 
they found a better positional 
rela tionshi p between certain 
players. The coach must always 
react to what is happening on tbe 
field, not to his own ambitions. 
As Sepp Herberger {manager of 
the winning team in 1954 and 
creator of the national coaching 
school] always used to say: ‘The 
coach has to get back to tbe 
game.' That is more true now 
than ever." 

Cramer, wbo is an honorary 
adviser to tbe German Federa- 
tion. thinks that Beckenbaoer is 
doing as good a job as can be 
expected with the players avail- 
able. 

Beckenbauer’s strength, 
he considers, is that be manages 
the team by instinct, has tbe 
respect of the players because be 
is, still, a better player than most 
of them, and is quite un- 
concerned about the attitude of 
tbe Press. 

Germany having survived the 
uninhibited fouling of the useful 
Moroccans with a fete free lock, 
Beckenbauer now has the most 
unenviable job in the World 
Cup: pfenning die defeat of 
Mexico on Saturday. It is prob- 
able he win achieve it. 


ROWING 


Stepping stone 
before the 
real hostilities 


By Jim RaOton 

The Amateur Rowing Associ- 
ation has made 10 entries in the 
Ratzeburg international regatta 
this weekend, which rakes place 
as dose to the East German 
border as you can get from the 
West. This event will be 
regarded as a stepping stone 
btfore full hostilities are en- 
countered at the very top of the 
world ladder in Lucerne in Three 
weeks' time. The British men's 
heavyweight eight may also split 
into a coxed and coxless four. 
They are trebly entered on both 
days in West Germany, and will 
probably decide their course of 
action when it is dear what the 
strength of the opposition is_ 

The British eight bad the 
frustration of travelling to 
Mannbeim six weeks ago just to 
be in a Hungarian eight. There 
are nine eights entered at 
Ratzeburg, including tbe na- 
tional West German eight. 
Czechoslovakia, the The 
Netherlands, and Ireland's fast- 


est eight in the liveiy^of the 


Irish 


Garda Siochana 
Police. 

The British eight should take 
particular interest in the pres- 
ence of the Czechoslovakian 
eight They should regard en- 
counters with them as a revenge 
match. The Czechs in last year's 
world championships deprived 
Great Britain of a final place in 
the eights. The Czechs went on 
to finish last in the final, leaving 
the British with small consola- 
tion in winning the Petite 
Finale. 

The British women's eight 
race only on the Sunday and 
have one West German eight lo 
oppose them on the final day. 
"Hiey will compete as a coxed 
four and two coxless pairs each 
day. which is a very tough 
schedule by any standard, racing 
over 2,000 metres each time.
