large role in 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 


Basks, 


Britain and the United 
Stales yesterday exchanged 
the first important contracts 
fin* research under President 
Reagan’s controversial Strate- 
gic Defence Initiative (SDI). 

Mr George Younger, the 
Secretary of State for Defence, 
and Mr Caspar Weinberger, 
his American counterpart, ex- 
changed die contracts at the 
Pentagon, surprising those on 
both sides of the Star Wars 
debate who believed that the 
British contribution would be' 
merely symbolic. 

The biggest of the contracts, 
worth $10 million (£6.6 mil- 
lion) is for a ' “European 
architecture study”, a project 
studying the possibility of 
using SDI technology in pro- 
viding defences for Europe 
against strategic attack. 

The British partner in the 
contract is the Ministry of 
Defence, which will subcon- 
tract the work to British 
industry. 

The second contract, worth 
$4.3 million is for work on 
panicle beam experiments. 
Panicle beams have the po- 
tential to measure characteris- 
tics of objects in space, to 
cause the malfunction of elec- 
tronics in space, and possibly 
to detonate explosives and 
propellants. The contract has 
been awarded toCulham Lab- 
oratories of Abingdon, Ox- 
fordshire. 

Britain and the US signed a 
memorandum of understand- 
ing last December providing 
for British participation in 
SDI, which is designed to 
determine whether a non- 
nuclear defence shield can be 
erected in space to destroy 
incoming enemy missiles. 

The two contracts are im- 
portant evidence that British

participation in SDI will be 
real and substantial and that 
the Pentagon may also be 
ready to o ner f ur ther contracts 
in areas of high technology 
later. 

Both proponents and de- 
tractors of SDI said last year 
that despite early high hopes 
in Britain, the US was unlikely 
to allow any important work 
on the project to go outside the 
US, and would not share the 
advance technology with even 
its closest allies.

tries who have so far joined

which has yet signed any 
significant contracts. 

The derision to award the 
business to British firms 
comes at the end of a political 
battle among the President’s 
advisers in which the personal 
relationship between Mr Rea- 
gan and Mrs Thatcher is 
thought to have played an

Paisley 
warns of 
civil war 

' Fresh from his vitriolic 
attack on the Royal Ulster 
Constabulary, the Rev Ian 
Paisley yesterday continued to 
whip up his supporters, by 
dedaring that the Province 
was on the veigeof “civil war” 
that could bring “hand to 
hand" street fighting. 

Mr Paisley was nnrepentent 
about the torrent of abuse-and 
implicit threats that he poured 
at police officers who forcibly 
removed him and 20 other 
Unionists from the Chamber 
at Stormont. 

As Government ministers 
denounced bis attack as dis- 
graceful, the leader of the 
Democratic Unionist Party 
kept tension in the Province 
rising as he prepared to lead 
hardliners into summer 
months of street politics. . 

But his scenario of impend- 
ing civil war had by last night 
left Mr Paisley an isolated 
figure with the largest Loyalist 
para-military organization, 
the, Ulster Defence Associa- 
tion, saying civil disobedience 
was the only possible way to 
defeat the Government and 
the official Unionist Party 
unwilling to become involved 
in huge street protests. 

Mr Tom King, Secretary of 
State for Northern Ireland, 
said Mr Paisley’s virion had 
no relation to reality unless 
people were prepared to create 
that situation. 

Early yesterday as police 
ended a sit-in at Stormont by a 
rebel rump of Loyalist Assem- 
bly members defying a Gov- 
ernment order dissolving the 
Assembly, Mr Paisley was 
carried from the building,

the World Affair s Council last 
night, said that the American 
taxpayer and the Nato Alli- 
ance as a whole woolcHind the 
US-British contracts would 
more than pay for themselves. 

“We have a great deal to 
offer to tiiis endeavour and 
there is a Jot waiting in the 
wings. Both I and Mr Wein- 
berger are convinced that our 
cooperation in this field is 
going to be a success,” he 
added. - 

But he said it must be 
recognised that tire implica- 
tions of strategic defence 
would be different for Ameri- 
ca and for Europe. 

“We must also remember 
that, whatever the eventual 
outcome of SDI research, for 
the forseeable future Western 
security will continue to de- 
pend upon the maintenance of 
nuclear deterrent forces." . 

A spokesman for tire Minis- 
try of Defence said last night 
that it had established a tender 
board for the $10 million 
contract. 

• Energy source; The idea of 
particle beam weapons relies 
on exploiting for military 
purposes, for foe first time, an 
enormous source of energy 
(Our Science Editor writes). 

The designs reached so far 
on paper of laser and particle 
weapons have similari tie s . 
Both consist of narrow beams 
of concentrated energy to 
destroy an enemy target. 

But the way the beams are 
generated depends on com- 
pletely different scientific 
principles. 

There are two other poten- 
tial types of these so-called 
directed energy weapons; high 
power microwaves and elec- 
tromagnetic pulses. 

Appeal by 
Reagan for 
Contra aid 

From Christopher Thomas 
Washington 

President Reagan appealed 
in an impassioned nationally- 
televised speech yesterday for 
the Democra tic-controlled 
House of Representatives to 
approve his request to give 
$100 million (£66 million) to 
the Nicaraguan Contras. 

He had hoped to deliver the 
speech, which lasted nearly 
half and hour, on foe floor of 
foe House, but the President 
was turned down by foe 
Speaker. Mr Thomas “Tip” 
O’NeilL The House votes on 
foe aid request today, and foe 
outcome could determine 
whether the Contras survive. 

Mr Reagan referred to wide- 
spread congressional concern 
that some Contra leaders may 
have creamed off previous US 
aid for their personal use. 

“I believe such abuses have 
occurred in foe past and they 
are intolerable," he said. “As a 
condition of our aid, I will 
insist on civilian control over 
al! military forces, that no 
human rights abuses are toler- 
ated. that any financial cor- 
ruption be rooted out, that 
American aid goes only to 
those committed to Demo- 
cratic principles." . 

The President said his pro- 
posals would prohibit any 
military aid for at least anoth- 
er three months. “With de- 
mocracy still a fragile root in 
Central America, with Mexico 
undergoing an economic cri- 
sis. can we responsibly ignore 
the level of danger to Ameri- 
can interests posed by a 
Communist Nicaragua backed 
by the Soviet Union?"

Ban on Scottish sheep 


A three-week ban on foe 
movement and slaughter of 
sheep in three areas of Scot- 
land was decreed yesterday 
because of higher than normal 
radiation levels in young 
lambs caused by fallout from 
the Chernobyl disaster. 

The restrictions apply to 
Dumfries and Galloway, Ar- 


ran and Easter Ross. 

Mr Malcolm Riflcind, Secre- 
tary of Slate for Scotland, told 
the Commons the radio-caesi- 
um levels were not as high as 
those discovered in Cumbria 
and North Wales. But five of 
50 sheep tested had levels 
above 1,000 beq nereis a kilo- 
gram. 


Blasts 
hurt 17 
in South 
Africa 

From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

Two explosions went off in 
central Johannesburg yester- 
day afternoon, injuring at least 
17 people, most of them 
whites, according to first 
reports. 

The blasts provided further 
evidence that the government's 
strong-arm repression of Mack 
opposition is provoking an 
openly terrorist response. 

The first explosion took 
(dace in a Wimpy restaurant 
crowded with lunch-time cus- 
tomers: The glass front of foe 
restaurant was blown out into 
the street, showering pedestri- 
ans with fragments. 

In Pretoria, the 
government’s Bureau for In- 
formation said that 15 people 
had been injnred in the blast. 
One was reported to be a two- 
mo nth-old baby. 

Two blacks were reported 
by the Barron to have been 
injured in an hotel explosion. 

Trade under pressure 7 

which damag ed the entrance 
and foyer as well as a 
neighbouring shop. Official 
sources said they fooagbt 
limpet urines were responsible. 

One of the injured, Mr Glen 
Pearce, who said he has been 
having lunch in the restaurant, 
sat m the street bleeding from 
a gash in the leg. 

Another white man, Mr 
John Ashbrnn, whose clothes 
had been ripped ofL shouted: 
“Why, why?” 

Armed police with dogs 
quickly cordoned off the areas 
of the two explosions. A 
hospital source in Johannes- 
burg vu quoted as saying that 
20 whites had been bnmght m 
alter the explosions, and 16 
released after treatment. 

Mr Denis Healey, the La- 
bour Party’s spokesman on 
foreign affairs, arrived in Jo- 
hannes bm^ yesterday on a 
four-day visit as a guest of the 
South African Cornual of 
Churches. 

Mr Healey said be had 
come “partly to show solidari- 
ty with those who share our 
views mi the situation here, 
and partly in order to learn 
more about the situation^. 

“ At the moment news about 
Sooth Africa through the con- 
ventional media channels is 
somewhat restricted.” 

As he left foe aipott, Mr 
Healey was confronted by 
young white students who 
jostled him and threw batches 
of bananas into his car. 

1 This was a protest at his 
recent remark, in the House of 
Commons, that Sooth Africa 
was becoming a banana 
repnblic. 

Earlier, at foe airport, Mr 
Healey said he had asked to 
-see Mr Nelson Mandela, for 
whom be had “the greatest 
admiration.” 

But in London foe Labour 
Party said that Mr Healey had 
been barred from meeting foe 
Imprisoned ANC leader. The 
South African government had 
claimed it would be “most 
inopportune" and Mr Healey 
would not now be travelling to 
Cape Town. 

The Labour Party spokes- 
man said (he South African 
government’s message had ar- 
rived after Mr Healey left 
Britain. 

Another foreign journalist 
has been ordered to (rove 
Sooth Africa. He is Mr Dan 
Sagfr, a freelance Israeli jour- 
nalist, who was told yesterday 
that his work permit would not 
be renewed. 


Howe suggests 
EEC ‘troika’ 
for Pretoria 

From Richard Owen, Brussels 


Sir Geoffrey Howe, foe 
British Foreign Secretary who 
next week takes over the 
presidency of the European 
Economic Community,, yes- 
terday said be was actively 
considering a peace mission to 
Pretoria as part of a ‘'troika” 
made up of the past, present 
and future presidents of the 
EEC Council of Ministers. 

On the eve of tomorrow’s 
EEC summit in The Hague, 
where a split looms over 
sanctions against South Afri- 
ca. Sir Geoffrey said: “The 
mission is very much under 
consideration”. 

Britain takes over foe presi- 
dency from The Netherlands 
next week after The Hague 
summit, and will hold it for 
six months before handing 
over to Belgium. 

Sir Geoffrey, who will meet 
fellow EEC foreign ministers 
early tomorrow morning be- 
fore the summit opens, told 
The Times yesterday before 
leaving for The Hague foal 
there were still “widely differ- 
ing views" among foe EEC 
states on sanctions. 

Last week senior EEC offi- 
cials met in The Hague to 
review the options, including 
a ban on South African fruit 
and vegetables, curbs on in- 
vestment and restrictions on 
South African airways. They 
failed to find common 
ground 

“Negative" sanctions were 
also discussed yesterday by 
foe British Cabinet Overseas 
and Defence Committee. Both 
Sir Geoffrey and Mrs Thatch- 
er prefer a combination of 
“selected” negative sanctions 
and positive measures, such as 
aid to black opposition groups 
coupled with a pursuit by the 
EEC of dialogue with Pretoria. 

Sir Geoffrey said foe EEC 
had been able to agree to a 
package of negative and posi- 


tive measures last September 
and could do so again. “We go 
to The Hague in pursuit of foe 
possible," he said. 

Last September's agreement 
was preceded by an EEC 
troika visit lo South Africa 
and this provided a precedent. 
Sir Geoffrey maintained. 

He said the troika was not a 
device to overcome foe EEC 
split but an attempt to exam- 
ine the situation at close hand 
and carefully consider foe 
options likely to bring about 
the end of apartheid — “a 
system we all abominate”. 

The EEC troika would con- 
sist of Sir Geoffrey, Mr Hans 
van den Broek, the Dutch 
Foreign Minister, and Mr Leo 
Tindemans, foe Belgian For- 
eign Minister. 

Belgium and The Nether- 
lands both favour limited 
sanctions but also share the 
conviction that they must be 
fully agreed and applied by the 
12 as.a whole 

Sir Geoffrey said West Ger- 
many. like Britain, had been 
consistent in its opposition to 
sanctions. Britain, Germany 
and France all had economic 
interests in South Africa, 
whereas those EEC states with 
“more modest connections” 
found it easier to make a stand 
on principle. 

Sir Geoffrey denied there 
was a rift between himself and 
Mrs Thatcher over South 
Africa and other EEC issues, 
saying he shared with foe 
Prime Minister foe belief that 
foe security of Europe could 
only be achieved by effective 
European co-operation.“The 
Prime Minister and I are 
sometimes equally impatient 
when Europe foils to get its act 
together.” Sir Geoffrey said, 
vowing that Britain would 
provide energetic and decisive 
leadership of the EEC.

An important exchange of 
lettera between the Vatican 
and the Archbishop of Canter- 
bury, Dr Robert Rnnde, o n the 
issue of female ordination is 
expected to be pnbtished next 
week. It could make a substan-

foe General Synod when it 
debates foe issues at York 
University in early July.

correspondence with Rome in 


the time of Pope Paul VL from 
which emerged a strong warn- 
ing that further steps towards 
ordaining women" in the 
Church of England would 
seriously jeopardize Anglican- 
Roman Catholic anity talks. 

The present Pope's position 
is known to be even stronger 
than Paul Vi’s, and that is 
expected to be reflected in the 
correspondence.

It is understood that the 
Vatican prefers that foe mat- 


ters should be dealt with as a!

than an open theological ques-

nounced the result so far of his 
appeal for names of bishops, 
clergy and laity who would 
regard foe ordination of worn- ! 
en as “imperilling the doctrine | 
of the Church of England”. 

His register now has the 
names of 2,296 priests, about 
20 per cent of foe total in the 
Church of England, together 
with 42 bishops and 4,760

John Paul Getty II spent 
£1,375,000 at Sotheby’s yes-

years. He has recently re-

The author of this life of

Peers will not 
be allowed to 
overturn Social 
Security Bill 


By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 


The Government is to re- 
verse its defeats in the Lords 
on the Serial Security Bill, 
which would add at least 
£460 million a year to public 
spending. 

Downing Street and the 
Department of Health and 
Social Security made dear 
yesterday that they would not 
allow the Lords to torpedo the 
original intention of making 
the benefits overhaul finan- 
cially neutraL . . 

The most important setback 
came on a clause forcing the 
unemployed and other social 
security claimants to pay the 
first 20 per cent of their rates 
bills. . . 

It was rejected by a majority 
of only three, but that rose to 
38 when the Lords voted to 
bring in a new community 
care allowance for the severely 
disabled. 

Whitehall sources said yes- 
terday that ministers were 
opposed to the changes and 
regarded them as defective in 
law as they are now drafted. 

Conservative MPs will be 
whipped to overturn the am- 
endments when they come be- 
fore the Commons. 

The proposed rates pay- 
ments would generate about 
£360 million of the planned 
£450 million a year savings on 
housing benefits — by far the 
biggest economy under the 
BUI. 


The Lords vote could also 
add another £100 million to 
public spending through a 
“technical flaw” which, ac- 
cording to the DHSS, would 
stop deductions from rates 
rebates being made for non- 
dependants such as sons and 
daughters in work. 

The department said yester- 
day in a statement: “This is 
only one stage in Parliament's 
consideration of this impor- 
tant BflL Of course, we will 
consider the arguments put 
forward in the Lords, but the 
effect of one of the amend- 
ments passed on Monday is 
that one group of people 
would never pay anything 
towards their rates, which is 
bad for local democracy, for 
personal responsibility and for 
work incentives. 

“The other amendment 
aims to protect a small num- 
ber of severely disabled people 
on supplementary benefit, 
who need help to cope at 
home. We have already said 
we intend to help this group 
and have announced special 
transitional protection. 

“We shall be looking to see 
if more can be done, but the 
amendment as it stands seems 
unlik ely to meet their needs in 
a workable way.” 

It claimed that the second 
amendment suffered from its 
“wide scope and vague 
criteria”. 


Housewife wins 
home care case 


By Thomson Prentice 

The housewife who forced allowance did not form part of 


the Government to Change its 
policy and pay married wom- 
en to look after elderly rela- 
tives heard the European 
Court of Justice confirm her 
£55 million victory in Luxem- 
bourg yesterday. 

Mrs Jacqueline Drake's test 
case triumph was formally 
endorsed by the judges, who 
said that it was a breach of 
EEC rules not to pay a married 
woman a benefit which 
formed part of a statutory 
scheme when that benefit was 
available to a married man. 

The Government yielded to 
campaigners, including Mrs 
Drake, on Monday by order- 
ing Invalid care allowances to 
be paid to up to 70,000 
married women caring for 
disabled people at home. 

Mrs Drake, aged 42, from 
Worsley, Manchester, said af- 
ter the ruling: “It's fabulous. 
This is a well-deserved victory 
for all the carers.” 

She said she thought that 
the Government had been 
devious by announcing the 
change in policy shortly before 
the court verdict 

The judges rejected the 
Government's claim that the

‘Facade’ 


fear in 
riot area 


By Craig Setnn 

Traders whose shops were 
destroyed during last year’s 
riots in Handsworth, Birming- 
ham, said yesterday that they 
fear that the Prince of Wales 
will today be presented with a 
“cosmetic facade” disguising 
the lack of rebuilding in the 


a statutory scheme providing 
protection against invalidity. 

Mrs Drake gave up work 
two years ago as a school 
cleaner and lollipop lady to 
care full time for her mother, 
now aged 69, who suffers from 
senile dementia. 

In March last year she 
became the first married 
woman to be awarded an 
invalid care allowance. 

An appeal tribunal hearing 
her case derided that the rule 
which prevented married and 
cohabiting women from 
claiming invalid care allow- 
ance no longer applied. 

It had been overruled by an 
EEC directive stating that 
there must be equal opportu- 
nities to claim social security 
benefits. 

The Department of Health 
and Social Security appealed 
and the case went to the 
European Court of Justice last 
January. 

Mrs Drake has been spon- 
sored in her fight by the 
Invalid Care Allowance Steer- 
ing Group, whose co-ordina- 
tor, Miss Jane Atkinson, said 
yesterday: “We are delighted 
that the Government is to 
extend the allowance to mar- 
ried and cohabiting women on 
the same terms that apply to 
men and single women. 

“We hope, however, that 
these terms are not going to be 
made mine restrictive by the 
Government.” 

The change in government 
policy will quadruple the net 
cost of paying the £23 allow- 
ance from £13 million to 
about £55 million. Organiza- 
tions for elderly and disabled 
people claim that £5.5 billion 
is saved because of the num- 
bers of disabled cared for 
privately. 


Nine months after the riots, 
only 5 per cent of an estimated 
£7 million in compensation 
claims have been paid and the 
rest ooold take another two 
years. There are empty sites 
where 13 shops stood and 
another dozen damaged or 
looted properties are empty or 
under repair. 

The Prince is visiting the 
area today and Mr Rod Hack- 
ney, a community architect 
who has worked dosety with 
him said be would be looking 
for “tangible evidence” tout 
local people were involved in 
initiatives to regenerate the 
area and prevent further riots. 

Mr Hackney said: “The 
Prince will be looking to see 
wfaat really is being done to 
compensate the people for the 
damage since the riots; how 
many young blacks, whites 
and Asians who were formerly 
unemployed are now employed 
and whether compensation is 


‘Forests 

damaging 

wildlife’ 


By Hugh Clayton 
Environment Correspondent 


It said there was room for 
more planting of forests, hot 
only in places which had been 
certified as being of little 
importance to the survival of 
wildlife. Some methods used 
by foresters were “completely 
benign and desirable” while 
others were “totally incompat- 
ible and unwanted”. 

The council called for an 
argent review of the tax con- 
cessions open to forest owners, 
because tin reasons for award- 
ing them no longer applied. 

.It said damage had been 
greatest in some upland areas 
which supported collections of 
wildlife unique to Britain. 
Most animals displaced by 
forest planting did not move to 
new open ground.

‘Male chauvinist’ BR 


HOME NEWS 


X V XU1V V Mfi A t, -ajs' JLW l. 

vows to improve lot 
of its women workers 

By Patricia Clough 



of drug tests 


British Rail confessed yes- 
terday to being a male chau- 
vinist organization and 
announced a big effort to 
recognize equal opportunities. 

Its decision to to reform 
itself was prompted by accusa- 
tions of sexism from a study 
sponsored by the Equal Op- 
portunities Commission on its 
treatment of women. 

The British Railways Board 
considers itself an equal op- 
portunities employer but Mrs 
Diana Robbins, the commis- 
sion researcher who spent i8 
months interviewing men and 
women at ail levels, found that 
this policy existed only on 
paper. 

Women made up only 6.S 
per cem 0 f the 170.000 
workforce and were being kept 
out, or down, by managers 
who claimed they were too 
weak or too emotional, or not 
ambitious, tall, bright or mo- 
bile enough, and should not be 
exposed to the bad langua ge of 
male rail workers, she 
discovered. 

Some feared that women 
would falsely accuse men 
colleagues of molesting them, 
and many regarded maternity 
leave as a “skive”. Women 
employees complained they 
were not provided with ade- 
quate lavatories, some suf- 
fered sexual harassment and 


many said they were looked 
down on by the men. 

She found several instances 
in which managers had appar- 
ently been breaking the law 
by. for instance, advertising 
jobs openly for men only. 

Mr David Kirby, BR’s joint 
managing director, said he 
was surprised by Mrs 
Robbins’s report, because he 
had expected British Rail to 
have a clean bill of health. He 
was particularly surprised at 
the reported intensity of hos- 


tility towards women. 

The board had appointed an 
Equal Opportunities Project 
scheme and was conducting a 
campaign to influence its 
managers and staff as pan of a 
drive to give itself a modern 
image. “Just as we are mod- 
ernizing our hardware we 
must see that we modernize 
our attitudes" he said. 

Compliance would be mon- 
itored and if change did not 
come fast enough resources 
would be made available, he 
said. 

Women in British Rail are 
jargely segregated in certain 


jobs. Sixty-one per cent are in 
lowly office jobs, yet only ! 
per cent are guards, footplate 
or signal workers, compared 
to 28 per cent of the male staff 
Of the 1,661 women em- 
ployed in the category of 
“railmen", 77 per cent are 


carriage cleaners, the “lowest 
of the low”, the report said.- 
Such work is used as a 
punishment for male employ- 
ees, for instance for drunken- 
ness. but considered by 
managers as suitable for wom- 
en because it is “domestic”. 

Mrs Robbins said that 
women were considered phys- 
ically too fragile for shunting 
and driving, and yet managers 
had no objections to them 
cleaning, although it was 
heavy, dirty and could be 
dangerous. 

Ms Lesley Holland, British 
Rail's new equality officer, 
said that the attitude to wom- 
en had improved somewhat 
since the report was conduct- 
ed in 1982-83. 

But attitudes are clearly 
deeply entrenched. Mrs Rob- 
bins listed some of the re- i 
marks she got from managers: 
“Women (as traction trainees) 
are a bloody nuisance. We had 
one, but she's gone.” 

“Shunting? How would a 
woman do shunting?” “It's 
not really a woman's world. 
Possibly some of the cleaning - 
it's just the facts of life.” “I 
know they do it in Russia but ; 
they’re different there." j

they do now. possibly by the 
end of the century, according 
to the Wine and Spirit 
Association's latest estimates. 

That would pul consump- 
tion per head among wine 
drinkers up from nearly half a 
bottle a week to just less than a 
bottle. 

Table wine sales may rise 
5.4 per cent this year to reach 
more than 500 million litres, 
the association estimates. But 
that is a decline in the annual 
rate of growth of 10 per cent or 
more seen earlier in this 
decade. 

The association's estimates 
for this year’s table wine 
consumption have been made 
while the trade is waiting for 
official returns to show how 
far the antifreeze scare in the 
spring may have affected 
sales. 

Trade reports have been 
confused, with some wine 
companies reporting a drop in 
sales at the time of the scare 
and others no effect, according 
to Mr Nick Gem, the newly 
appointed association chair- 
man. who is trade develop- 
ment director for Allied 
Vintners, pan of Allied-Ly- 
ons. the food and drinks 
group. 

Potentially the table wine 
market in Britain could reach 
1.275 million litres. 

Britons are rated tenth in 
the beer-drinking league 
worldwide, twenty-seventh in 
spirits drinking and twenty- 
seventh in wine. 


Scotland Yard yesterday 
mounted guard on Mr George 
Pinker, gynaecologist to the 
Princess of Wales, after the 
disappearance of a woman 
patient at Broadmoor who may 
have a grudge against him. 

Alvada Kooken, aged 62, 
vanished on Monday while on 
a shopping trip in Sonthsea 
from Broadmoor. In 1979 she 
was convicted of the mmrder of 
her best friend, who she 
believed had persuaded Mr 
Pinker to perform a hysterec- 
tomy on her. denying her the 
chance of children. 

Hampshire police said that 
Miss Kooken was dangerous 
and urged the public not to 
approach her. 

A spokesman said that Scot- 
land Yard had been told of a 
number of people towards 
whom she might become vio- 
lent 

As police in the Home 
Counties and London searched 
for Miss Kooken yesterday, 
several MPs questioned the 
Broadmoor policy of allowing 
patients out 

But Mr Peter Thompson , 
secretary of the Matthew 
Trust which deals with mental 
health matters, said the disap- 
pearance should not be al- 
lowed to affect the comm unity 
visits. The trips were a prepa- 
ration for discharge and 
should not be abandoned be- 
cause of an isolated incident 

The last time patients ab- 
sconded on a similar trip was 
in 1980, when two patients 
vanished near Poole. 


A drive to eliminate “thin 
bone" syndrome, which is the 
cause of patients taking up 
thousands of hospital beds 
each year and the reason for a 
large number of deaths, was 
launched yesterday. It comes 
after the creation of the Na- 
tional Society for 
Osteoporosis. 

One in four women and one 
in 40 men are affected, often 
temporarily, by the condition, 
which is produced by a lack of 
calcium. Bones break more 
easily and many people dev- 


The hedgehog failed to win 
the protection of the High 
Court yesterday. 

Two judges refused to over- 
turn the decision of Canter- 
bury magistrates that Mr Ian 
Campbell had not committed 
any criminal offence when he 
beat a hedgehog to death. 

They dismissed a claim by 
the RSPCA that because the 
hedgehog rolls itself up in a 
ball when attacked, it becomes 
an a nimal in captivity and is 
protected by the Protection of 
Animals Act, 1911. 


Mr Justice Otton, sitting 
with Lord Justice Watkins in 
the Queen's Bench Divisional 
Court, said he could not find 
that maiming an animal in 
that way rendered ft captive

The High Court ruled yes- 
terday that a Leeds stipendi- 
ary magistrate was wrong to 
exclude evidence produced by 
a Lion In taximeter because of 
a wrong date on the read-out. 

The court agreed that Ste- 
phen Gasparks, of Millshaw 
Road, Leeds, was wrongly 
acquitted of driving while over 
the limit. Tfae judges allowed a 
police appeal and directed that 
be should be convicted and 
sentenced. 


A woman accused of mur- 
dering two children believed 
she was being persecuted by 
tbe evil eye. a Central Crimi- 
nal Court jury heard yes- 
terday. 

Mrs Mirella Beechook was 
haunted by morbid thoughts 
and talked about black magic 
and voodoo. Dr Raghun- 
andan Gaind, a Harley Street 
psychiatrist, said. 

He -raid Mrs Beechook felt 
her husband's ex-girlfriend 
had put a spell on her and she 
attributed scratches on her 
body to the evil eye. After 
killing her daughter. Tina, 
aged seven, and the girl's 
playmate. Stacey Kavanagh. 
aged four, she said she drew 
pictures and saw images of her 
dead daughter. Dr Gaind told 
the court. 

The psychiatrist was giving 
evidence for the defence on 
the second day of the trial. 
‘Mrs Beechook, aged 26, has 
denied murdering the two girls 
and hiding their bodies on 
September 18 last year. 

Mr Alan Green, for the 
prosecution, said on Monday: 
“There is no dispute at all that 
Beechook did indeed kill both 


children and did so unlaw- 
fully.” The issue the jury was 
trying was whether she intend- 
ed to kill them and. if she did. 
whether she was suffering an 
abnormality of mind which 
diminished her responsibility 
at the time, he said. 

After her arrest Mrs Bee- 
chook was said to have told Dr 
Gaind: “I loved her so much. 1 
am now motherless. I do not 
even want to see another day. 
It is like a nightmare to me. I 
cannot believe she is not here 
with me or ever will be again. 

“I close my eyes. I can see 
them both in white lace. Two 
little angels smiling with me. 
Without my Tina it is very 
painful. It is like two big 
crosses — that is something I 
have to face. Tina will always 
be in my heart forever and 
ever until the day we meet in 
heaven.” 

Dr Gaind described Mrs 
Beechook as vulnerable, ob- 
sessional. rigid and stubborn. 
He said Mrs Beechook told 
him she started taking exces- 
sive doses of a cold cure as a 
sedative after she was refused 
sleeping pills. 

The trial continues today. 


Gary Hopkins kidnapped 
Leoni Keating and threw her 
into a drainage ditch to drown 
her and to cover his tracks 
after satisfying his perverted 
lust, a court was t old 
yesterday. 

That was the only conclu- 
sion the jury trying Mr Hop- 
kins could ’ draw from the 
evidence. Mr Michael Hill. 
QC, said in his closing speech 
at Ipswich Crown Court 
yesteixlay. 

The jury is expected to 
retire today to consider its 
verdict after Mr Brian Cox. 
QC, counsel for the defence, 
sums up his case that Mr 
Hopkins left Leoni. aged 
three, bound but alive. The 
jury was told yesterday that 
Mr Hopkins would not be 
giving evidence. 

Mr Hopkins, aged 28. from 
Bedford, has admitted kidnap- 
ping Leoni from the Seashore 
caravan site at Great Yar- 
mouth last September and 
driving her 60 miles to Barton 
Mills. Suffolk, where he sexu- 
ally assaulted her. but he 
denies her murder. 

Mr Hill told the jury. “He 
caned that child off and, 
having satisfied his perverted 
lust, he disposed of her 

“It is the Crown's case that 
this evidence demonstrates he 
put her in the water — and be 
did it because he wanted her to 
drown so that he would not be 
at risk. That's murder.” 

Mr Hill asked the jury: 
“How did that child get in the 
water if he did not put her 
there? Imagine that child in 
the dark with her hands bound 
behind her and ask yourself in 
all common sense how did she 
get out of the wood where he 
left her and into the water 
without a mark on her?" 

Earlier. Dr David Harrison, 
a Home Office consultant 
pathologist, said that after 
Leoni’s body had been re- 
moved from the water he 
found blood between her legs 
and further evidence of sexual 
interference, i here were 
marks on her wrists where she 
had been bound with twine. 

Mr Hopkins allegedly told 
police officers: “After what I

Drug testing at Wimbledon 
j was sharply criticized ycsier- 
j day by Professor Arnold Beck- 
ett’ the world’s leading author- 
ity on the detection of drug use 
in sport. 

Professor Beckett, the chair- 
man of medical commissions 
on the International Olympic 
Commiiicc and the Interna- 
tional Tennis Federation. la- 
mented that players who are 
guilty of taking heroin, co- 
caine 3nd amphetamines will 
not be penalized or named. 

“Unless a player who is 
positive has the drug on a 
prescription, those responsi- 
ble for testing are compound- 
ing an iflegaf act by keeping 
their findings secret." he said. 

The tests, the first at Wim- 
bledon. are being carried out 
not by the ITr, the world 
governing body, but by the 
Men’s International Profes- 
sional Tennis Council and the 
Association of Tennis Profes- 
sionals. 

The emphasis is on detect- 
ing drugs used for recreational 
purposes rather than for those 
which improve performance. 

“It is unfortunate that the 
testers are not doing the job in 
a thorough manner. For in- 
stance. they are not testing for 
anabolic steroids, which can 
be used by sportsmen to 
recover more quickly from 
intensive activity.” Professor 
Beckett said. 

Mr Marshall Happer, the 
ATP administrator, said: 
“The players would not have 
agreed to take the tests in the 
first place if the results had 
been published. It would bean 
invasion of privacy. There is 
aireadv the provision for sus- 
pension if a player is caught by 
the police in possession of a 
banned drug.”

Choice in petrol 


Lead-free fuel goes on sale 


Major Peter Darlington, a

Chorlton. Manchester, admit- 
ted fiddling mileage and ex- 
pense accounts for officers 
ander his command. He said 
that be would return the MBE 
he was awarded in 1984. 


L^nleaded petrol went on 
sale for the first time yesterday 
at 10 Esso filling stations in 
London. 

Mr Ian Upson. Esso’s mar- 
keting director, said that the 
new fuel will be available at 
100 stations throughout the 
country by the end of summer. 

Mr William Waldegrave, 
Minister for the Environment 
became the first customer 
when he filled the tank of a 
new Ford Granada car at a 
garage in Fulham, west Lon- 
don. - 

Mr Waldegrave said that 
the Government was commit- 
ted to the "earliest 
practicable” introduction of 
lead-free petrol, and he hoped 
other oil companies would 
follow Esso's lead. 

Tbe Government has set 
three deadlines for new cars to 
be adapted to use the fuel 
starting from October 1988. 

Ford said that all models 
will run on the fuel, but the 
ignition timing would have to 
be adjusted slightly. 

Esso said that about 10 per 
cent of British cars could use 
unleaded petrol, but drivers 
should consult manufacturers 


before using the fuel, which 
will cost four to five pence a 
gallon more than four-star 
petrol. 

Mr Waldegrave said that 
tbe Government plans to 
phase out two-star petrol and 
replace it with unleaded fuel. 
Unleaded petrol is a 95 octane 
fuel, equivalent to three-star 
petrol. 

Mr Jonathon Bradley, an 
estate agent, from Battersea, 
south-west London, who 
drove into the Fulham filling 
station and filled his car. said: 
“I use it regularly in France 
and am certainly prepared to 
pay more for unleaded petrol 

But many drivers yesterday 
did not know whether their 
cars could run on unleaded 
petroL Others said that they 
were not prepared to pay up to 
£500 for a catalytic converter 
to be put on the exhaust 
system, and would wait until 
they bought a new car. 

The British Tourist Author- 
ity said that more tourists 
from Europe, particularly 
West Germany. Swiieriand 
and Austria, would drive to 
Britain now that the petrol 
was available.

South Africa crisis • Chernobyl disaster 


Hattersley against general 
economic sanctions 


APARTHEID 


Mrs Thatcher. the Prime Min- 
ister. reiterated her aversion to 
. general economic sanctions sev- 
eral times during exchanges in 
' the Commons about the situa- 
tion in South Africa. 

She reserved her strongest 
rejection of such moves for the 
. suggestion that there should be 
'an end to imer-continental 

■ ai riinks with the republic, a 

* move backed by Mr David 
Steel, the Liberal leader.

, Hattersley, Deputy L e ad e r of

him of bis comment when a 
' Foreign Office minister arguing 
. against general economic

; Mr Hattersley told her that the 

* sanctions which would be most 

■ effective would not be general 
‘economic sanctions but finan- 
' dal sanctions. 

Opening the exchanges, Mr

believe that a policy of general 
economic sanctions would be in 
the ioicTest either of the British 
people or (Loud Conser- 
vative laughter and the waving 
of order papers). 

Mr Hattersley: I am grateful 
and flanercd for the Prime 
Minister's interest. 

Does she not understand that 
the sanctions which would be 
most effective would not be 
general economic sanctions, bat 
financial sanctions? 

If the international commu- 
nity loses faith in South Africa, 
will she and the Chancellor of 
the Exchequer bolster up the 
South African economy by 
rescheduling its debts? 

Mrs Thatcher: f gather he is 
against general economic sanc- 
tions. I am grateful to him for 
making his position dear. As 1 
have made clear, we will con- 
sider the position with our EEC 
and Internationa] partners. 

Mr Hattersley: we are all used 
to her combination of prevarica- 
tion and bluster. 

On this occasion, she has 


representatives of black South 


, policy of any country. 

■ Will she reaffirm (he asked) 
- ‘the Government’s commitment 
‘ to the early ending of apartheid 
. and to the ecomonic and polid- 
■ cal advancement of all races in 
South Africa? 

WiD she resist any measures 
which would destroy jobs and 
living standards of black people 
there and thousands of jobs in 


this country? 

Mrs Thatcher. I confirm that we 
seek an early end to apartheid 
.‘and the advance of all races in 
South Africa and we seek the 
suspension of violence on all 
sides. 

-Mr Hattersley. Deputy Leader 
of the Opposition: May I 
congratulate the Prime Minister 
on wisely changing course and 
agreeing to the meeting between 
Mrs Lynda Chalker, Minister of 
State at the Foreign Office, and 
Mr Oliver Tambo, the African 
National Congress leader. 

If she follows the logic of that 
derision and derides to stand 
out against the extreme right 
wing of her backbenchers, the 
Opposition will support that 
courae. 

If she continues to prevaricate 
about sanctions, or pretend they 
will not change the regime of 
apartheid, how does she propose 
to bring about change in South 
Africa? 

Mrs Thatcher: The purpose of 
' seeing Mr Tambo will be to tell 
• him that the suspension of-. 
’ violence on all sides is essential _ 
to change in South Africa. 

Mr Hattersley talks about a 
change of course. He has 
changed course more than any- 
one else. 

He said, as Minister of State 
for Foreign Affairs: “I do not 



Hattersley: Financial sanctions 
wonld be more effective 
done more than damage her 
electoral prospects. By 
prevaricating about her attitude 
to the racist regime in Soutb 
Africa, she has given it comfort 
and support and encouraged its 
continuation. 


Mrs Thatcher: Mr Hattersley is 
talking nonsense with his usual 
blustering confusion. The debts 
are not government to govern- 
ment debts; they are commer- 
cial debts. 

Mis Ann WiatertBn(Congfeton, 
C): Bearing in mind that those 
who live in glasshouses should 
not throw stones, will the Prime 
Minister teU members of the 
Commonwealth like Zimbabwe 
to put their own houses in order 
rather than impose sanctions on 
South Africa? 

Mrs Thatcher The system of 
apartheid has to end. 1 do not 
believe that general economic 
sanctions would help, but would 
be damaging to blade people's 
jobs in South Africa and to 
employment in this country. 

In the end there wifi have to 
be negotiations between- the 
South African Government and 7 


Mr David Steel: Does die not 
agree that the advantage of the 
Commonwealth Eminent Per- 
sons Group report suggestion 
that intercontinental air links 
should cease is that it is specific, 
easily checked and easily po- 
liced? The gesture politics she 
despises includes the gesture of 
dragging one's feet and doing 
nothing. 

Mrs Thatcher: Doing anything 
about air links would be very 
damaging indeed, not least to 
the 800,000 there who have a 
right to come here. Mr Steel 
does not share foe views of Dr 
David Owen who said on March 
24 1985 in an artide that Total 
or even selective trade sanctions 
will not succeed”. 

Mr George Gardiner (Reigaie, 
C): We would not expect her to 
reveal in advance the proposals 
she will make to her colleagues 
at The Hague, but will she 
assure us that nothing she does 
will be at variance with the 
policies and principles she has 
described and defended reso- 
lutely hitherto in the House? 
Mrs Thatcher - 1 shall do my 
level best at the economic 
summit, as at the Common- 
wealth Conference, to bring 
about eiwwig e in South Africa 
through the process of negotia- 
tions between the Government 
and representatives of foe black 
population in an atmosphere of 
suspension of violence. 

Mr Patrick Nicbolls 
(Teign bridge, Q: One of many 
false assum ptions about South 
Africa is that Bishop Tutu 
exclusively speaks for the blacks 
or for the majority. Whereas he 
Iras a congregation of fewer than 

150,000, Bishop Makoena’s In- 
dependent Reform Church basa 
membership of 4,500,000. Can 
she do anything to support 
Bishop Makoena who is ve- 
hemently opposed to sanctions, 
without undermining his 
position? 

Mrs Thatcher: It is posable to 
support moderate leaders and 
also the many industries in the 
forefront of trying to break 
down apartheid, and to bring 
sanctionsag/nrut them would be 
to harm the very people trying 
to bring about change. It would 
be callous to put large numnbers 
of Mack people out of work and 
then to create additional un- 
employment in this country. 

Mr Jack Straw (Blackburn, 
Lab): Since the Prime Minister 
has claimed in this House today 


show that her own claims about 
the effects on unemployment 


Red tape 
over pay 
might cost 
jobs 


ate amply scare tactics? 

Mis Thatcher: If he looks, he 
will find that answers about 
trade figures are calculated on 
the general value of exports to 
this country from South Africa 
and the number of jobs to which 
that would normally be 
equivalent. 

Sir John Bfeg9-Davisan (Hppxng 
Forest, Cf. Has the Govern- 
ment, with other Common- 
wealth governments, any 
contingency plans to deal with 
the collapse of the economy of 
Zimbabwe and other states in 
Sooth Africa in foe event of foe 
intensification of sanctions 
against the republic of South 
Africa? 

Mrs Thatcher No. Thai is a

: TOURISM 


■ Despite fears in foe United 
States of Libyan retaliation, 
there were hopeful signs that 
last year’s record level of Ameri- 
can tourists to the United King- 
dom could be maintained, Mr 

; David Trippier, Under Sec- 
. retary of State for Employment, 
| raid during Commons question 
" time. 

Asked about the latest es- 
‘ timate of Ame ri can tourists, he 
said: Figures for the Inter- 
national Passenger Survey are 
- only avaOaMe for the first 
quarter of 1986 and show an 
• increase in the Dumber of vis- 
' itors from North America of 15 
i per emit We hare no precise 
. details as to foe levels of 

■ American tourism subsequently. 

The British Tourist Anthor- 
. ity, from their contacts with the 
industry, hare advice that if 
I present levels continued 
, throughout foe year there may 


be a reduction of up to 15 per 
cent. 

Bat there are signs of an early 
nptnm in business and foe BTA 
are hopeful that over foe year as 
a whole last year’s record level of 
American visitors may be 


Mr Ronald Davies (Caerphilly, 
Lab): If that figure of 15 per cent 

is correct it wfll mean the British 
tourist industry trill lose £150 
million this year. In retrospect it 
is dear the Government's 
involvement in the American 
bombing of Libya wonld lead to 
retaliation and lass of trade and 
jobs in this country. 

If he finds that loss an 
acceptable expense, why is foe 
Government rejecting economic 
measures against Sooth Africa 
precisely because jobs wfll be 
tost? 


Mr Trippier We are hopeful 
from the BTA figures that there 


from the BTA figures that there 
will be a recovery by the end of 
the year. 

To pot the whole thing in 
perspective, a 15 per cent dr^j, if 


that were the worst, in foe 
number of visitors to the United 
Kingdom, wonld in real terras 
mean only a drop of 3 per cent in 
the tourist sector. 

Sir Kenneth Lewis (Stamford 

and Spalding, C): It is difficult to 

deal with fear in tourism. The 
drop may hare something to do 
with the not very ttinfodwy 
weather we have or the fact tint 
the pound is very high against 
the dollar. 

Mr Trippier: No Americans 
come to this country because of 
our dnmft so we can dispense 
with that There night be an 
exception or two this yew. 

Many people who hare stud- 
ied the exchange rate have got it 
wrong in that they have assumed 
Americans are worried about 
then- safe destination. I think 
they are more worried about 
travelling on the plane. 

Mrs Ann Gwyd (Cynoa Valley, 
Labjdf he is so confident about 
recovery of tourism, wonld he 
explain why the Prime Minister 
grovelled on American television 


and begged them to come here? 
Mr Trippier If she is referring 
to the sta t e me n t the Prime 
Minister nude on the way to the 
Tokyo summit that this co unt ry 
was a safe destination, 1 wonld 
have thought the Opposition 
would have su pp o rt e d iL It 
certainly helped to dbpcLfears 
in the minds of seme pe op le who 
were concerned about coming to - 
fiie United Kingdom. 

Mr Stefan Teriedri (Cardiff 
West, O This is all doe to 
Labour propaganda which plays 
into the bands of the Libyans 
nationally and internationally. 
The Labom* Party are the main 
contributor* to the drop in 
American tourists to this coua- 
try. 

Mr Trippien Some of the state- 
ments made by Labour P arty 
spokesmen on the matter hare 
not helped one iota. They have 
done nothing to assist the Brit- 
ish T om 1s t Authority in the 
United States and hare taken 
every opport unity they can to 
rubbish tourism generally. 


The original proposal, be said, 
would have tackled foe problem 
of all those out of work fora year 


of mil those out of work fora year 
or more and was estimated to , 
cost around £3,300 million. The | 
Government had rejected this as 1 
bring an. underestimate and, 
calculated the cost at nearer 
£4,300 -million. 1 

Consequently the committee \ 
had scaled down the proposals 
to cover foe 500,000 people out 
of work for three years or more 
at a cost of £1,000 million. 

Mr David Howell, (Guildford, 
C) said manufacturing employ- 
ment was going to go on 
shrinking and shrinking at a 
great rale. It could not and 
should not be stopped. One of 
Britain’s difficulties was that in 
the past for emotive but wrong- 
headed reasons it had stood in 
the way of rapid shrinkage and 


of diverting people into new 
activities. He took strong excep- 


activities. He took strong excep- 
tion to the line that somehow 
iow-teeb and no-tech should be 
maintained in order to ensure a 
great many people continued in 
jobs that coukl be done by 
machinery. v

Tahiti reclaims 
stool for £80,000 


ByGeraUineNonnan, Sale Room Correspondent 


Tahiti has reclaimed a little 
wooden stool, brought to Brit- 
ain in 1774 by the first 
Polynesian to visit this coun- 
try, at a cost of £80,000. 

Omai was born on Raiatea 
but moved to Tahiti after his 
father was killed by men from 
Bora Bora. It was in the hope 
of reclaiming his hereditary 
lands through the intervention 
of the king that he accepted 
Tobias Fuxneaux's invitation 
to sail home with him to 
Britain. 

la British eyes Omai was a 
specimen and a curiosity. He 
caused a sensation, was re- 
ceived by the king, painted by 
Joshua Reynolds and sket- 
ched by Nathaniel Dance. The 
chalk portrait by Dance shows 
Omai with the stool tucked 
under his arm. 

Omai never recovered his 
ancestral acres but Captain 
Cook bought him some land 
on Huahine and built a house 
for him when he sailed back to. 
the Society Islands in 1776. 

The stool, some dubs, shoes 
and other relics have re- 
mained in the family of Tobi- 
as Fumeaux. with whom 
Omai stayed while in England, 
since the eighteenth century. 
They were sent for sale at 
Christie's by Drusilla Fur- 
neaux, a direct descendant of 
Tobias. 

Christie's had estimated the 
stool, carved from a single 
piece of wood, at £30,00 to 


£40,000 and the Tahiti Muse- 
um was determined to have it 

It had not raised enough to 
buy it, but when Lord 
McAlproe, Conservative Par- 
ty treasurer and a keen collec- 
tor of South Seas material, 
contributed £5,000 and 
George Ortiz, another leading 
collector, gave • £2,000 the 
purchase was secured. 

Omai's wooden clubs made ' 
£6,000, £3,500 and £2,500. to 
RA. Lee, and his slippers 
£ 1,500. The relics made a total 
of £95,700. 

It has been a big week for 
tribal art. A Benin bronze 


plaque made £176,000 al 
Sotheby’s on Monday and a 


Sotheby’s on Monday and a 
Benin ivory armlet in the form 
of a leopard, worn by the Oba

In Monaco on Monday 
evening Sotheby’s held its 
most successful sale of Chi- 
nese export porcelain. 

There were bidders from 
Europe and the United 
States — Far Eastern buyers 
are not normally interested in 
the field - and prices went 
through the roof. 

Items made for the Port- 
ugese market went especially 
well with a top price of

statement to the Commons by 
Mr Malcolm Rffiriad, Secretary 
of State for Scotland. 

He stated categorically that 
there was no danger to public 
health and no re ason for con - 
sumers to refrain from purchas-

John Home Roberts®, an 
Opposition spokesman on agri- 
culture, said be feared that the 
minister's assertion that these 
was no danger was likely to be. 
about as reassuring as.Corporal 
Jones telling Dad’s Army not to

Mr Rfikind said it was Govern- 
ment policy to insist on the 
highest levels of safety and in 

order to keep under supervision

where relatively high levels of

Parliament to come into effect

Monitoring in foe specified 
areas and other areas would 
continue and the - restrictions 
would be reduced or remo ved as 
soon as resting con fir med foe 
expected fell in levels. 

Re recognized the measures 
might cause some interference 
with the marioeting plans of 
some fanners in the areas 
concerned. If it should prove 
necessary the Government 
would be prepared to discuss 
cases of compensation fra: se- 
vere kiss in particular circum- 
stances to specific fanners. 

The results of tests on yonng 
Iambs in Scotland were being 
published today. Generally they 
were satisfactory. No readings 
had been obtained comparable 
to foe highest in North Wales 
and Cumbria but there were five 
readings over 1,000 becqucrds 
for caesium 134 and caesium 
1 37 together which was foe limit 
at which by international 
recommendation action should 
be considered. 

The animals tested were only 
two to three months old and 
would not be ready for market 


for Dumfries and Galloway, 
Arran and Easter Ross. These 
restrictions could' haven disas- 
trous effect Lambs could be- 
come unsaleable during foe 
. course of the restrictions. 

On contamination of land 
and produce, foe Secretory of 
State for the Environment 

promised the House on May 6 
that foe Government would be 
explicit, frank and oped. There 
has been much press comment 
for several weeks about hoi 

spots of caesium contamination- 

How long has the Secretary of 
State known abbut . these hoi 
spots and how ' much (arm 
produce, milk and vegetables as 
wen as lamb has been moved 

from these areas in recent weeks 
and what does he say to people 

who have bought and eaten that 
food? Chn we nave'a fixU public 
report on all the aspects of this 
monitoring? 

Mr Rffldnftr -The degree of 
public alarm wfll be signifi- 
cantly influenced by whether the 
Opposition takes as responsible 
an attitude towards this matter 
as the Government fans done.

might reasonably be puzzled jf 
they were told on the one band 
foar there was no problem and

Would it not be helpfol.to

totally cover the «iangiitw of aD 
sheep within these areas and did 
Britain use the same scale of 
monitoring as other European 
countries? 

Mr HifltM said all the samples 


easier to monitor those particu- 
lar sheep. In those areas lambs 
bad been found with a level of

Mr KOUt We are doing

UMlONLAW 


The Labour movement was 
having difficulty in describing 
the individual rights of trade 
union members yet they wanted 
to repeal what they 'riled Tory 
anti-trade union laws and deny 
access to the courts for people 
aggrieved by union conduct, Mr 
Kenneth Clarke, the Paymaster' 
General and spokesman on 
employment, said daring ques- 
tion tune in the Commons. 

If those laws were repealed, he 
said, the tsnerai picture of trade 
union legislation would cease to 
reflea the improvement in 
industrial relations. - 
• He was replying to Mr John 
Prescott, chief Opposition 
spokesman on employment, 
who had repeated Labour’s 

pledge to repeal what he referred 

to as “all thin legislation”. 

Mr Prescott had suggested that 
if Mr Clarke was so concerned 
about individual' rights he 
should reconsider his decision 
not to consult with TUC about 
employees’ rights to belong to a 
trade union, print workers’ 
rights to redundancy payments 
and the right to return to work, 
as in the case of the miners in 
respert of the Acas decision. 


• Earfier, Mr Donates Hoyle 
(Warrington North, Xab)'askea 
if ministers’ refusals to meet the 
TUC meant their policy was still 
Confrontation rather than 
consultation. 

There was Labour laughter 
and Conservative cheers when 
Mr Clarke said the nation now 
had the best industrial relations 
for generations. -. 

Figures for the past year, he 
sakL showed foe number of 
hours lost through industrial 
disputes was the lowest for 24 
years. The total number of 
strikes, was the lowest for 50 
years. 

Mr John Towneud (Bridlington, 
p suggested that when min- 
isters did meet the TUC they 
should discuss the adequacy of 
safeguards for trade union mem- 
bers wishing to contract out of 
foe political levy. -

If undertakings previously 
iven were not fulfilled (be 


given were not nunued (be 
asked), would, the Government 
change the few to enable people 
to contract in and not contract 
out? • ' . 


Mr Clarke said members had an 
undoubted right not to pay foe 
political levy if they did not 
want to do so. 

Some unions bad been less 


tha # fragk when balloting on foe 
issue. 

Mr David Winaick (Walsall 
North, Lab) asked about foe 
right of people to belong to 
.unions. 

• If Mr Clarke met the TUC 
they would express strong oppo- 
sition to tire way that people had 
been treated at the Government 
Communication H e adqu art ers, 
when their only crime was that 
ofbekmging to a trade union. 

Mr Clarke said that 99 per 
cent of employees atGCHQhad 
accepted new conditions of 
service. 

The -people who had been 
disciplined had originally un- 
dertaken to accept those con- 
ditions to renounce 
membership!, but then bad gone 
back. 

Mr John Stokes (Halesowen 
and Stourbridge, Q said indus- 
trial relations in toe factories 
were now so good, with so few 
strikes, that industrial workers 
could set an example to foe 
professions with less good 
records — for example, teaching. 
Mr Clarke said those industrial 
workers would do well to appre- 
ciate what Mr Prescott meant 
when be 'talked of repealing 
what he described as Tory anti- 
trade union laws.

About 400 children a year 
are born in Britain with cystic

diagnosis of foe disease in the

don, and at Toronto and Sait 
Lake City. The d e fe ctiv e gene 
in human chromosomes which 
comes foe disease was located 
and now scientists at St

in trolley services. 

“They are very economical

to ‘ 


Cancer linked 
passive 
smoking’, says 
senior scientist 

By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 
Some people develop can- 


cer by breathing the smoke 
from other people's cigarettes, 
according to Sir Richard Doll, 
the scientist who established 
the link between smoking and 
lung cancer in the 1 950s. 

His verdict contradicts the 
conclusions of the latest re- 
search on the risks of 
"passive" smoking. The Insti- 
tute of Cancer Research has 
concluded that inhaling other 
people's smoke camcs .no 
significant increase in risk of 
lung cancer. 

However, in a speech at the 
Royal Society of Medicine in 
London on Monday night. Sir 
Richard said: "Some cancers 
must certainly be caused by 
the involuntary, or passive, 
inspiration of smoke that 
others produce. 

Smoking now accounts for 
about 90 per cent of all lung 
cancer deaths in Britain and 
for more than a third of deaths 
from alt types of cancer in this 
country', he said. 

Reduction in the use of 
tobacco is "outstandingly the 
most important” measure to 
prevent cancer, Sir Richard, 
who is honorary consultant to 
the Imperial Cancer Research 
Fund epidemiology unit at the 
Raddiffe infirmary, Oxford, 
said. 

The Institute of Cancer 
Research is to publish its latest 
findings in the British Journal 


of Cancer next month. The 
study, involving more than 
1 2,000 people, concludes that 
passive smoking for life-long 
non-smokers carries no signif- 
icant risk of lung cancer, 
bronchitis or heart disease. 

• Market traders who take a 
puff on a cigarette between 
serving customers with fresh 
food are in breach of food 
hygiene regulations, two High 
Court judges ruled yesterday. 

Lora Justice Woolf and Mr 
Justice Simon Brown held that 
magistrates at Bury Si Ed- 
munds. Suffolk, had not prop- 
erly interpreted the 
regulations when they dis- 
missed a prosecution brought 
by St Edmundsbury Borough 
Council against Mr Lawrence 
Bugg. a vegetable stallholder 
at Bury St Edmunds. 

The magistrates acquitted 
Mr Bugg last October after 
accepting his evidence that he 
never smoked while serving 
customers but that he did 
smoke between customers, 
leaving his lighted cigarette on 
the back of his lorry trailer. 

The judges said that the 
regulations canned those serv- 
ing the public from smoking 
while handling any food open 
to contamination. But they 
decided that, in view of the 
time the case had taken to 
reach the High Court, it 
should not be sent back to the 
magistrates with a direction to 
convict. 


Unions to act on 
GCHQ dispute 


Leaders of Whitehall unions 
yesterday agreed a programme 
of action as a first stage in the 
developing campaign to re- 
verse the Government’s deci- 
sion to impose severe finan- 
cial penalties on staff at the 
Government Communication 
Headquarters (GCHQ) who 
rejoined a trade union. 

The policies committee of 
the Council of Civil Service 
Unions has called for demon- 
strations throughout Britain 
to express anger and indigna- 
tion at the way union mem- 
bers at GCHQ Cheltenham 
have been treated 

The demonstrations will be 
timed to coincide with a 
planned meeting between 
unions and Sir Geoffrey 
Howe, the Foreign Secretary. 
.Asked whether strike action 
was being considered, Mr Bill 
McCall, the committee’s act- 
ing chairman, said: “There is a 
great deal of anger in Govern- 
ment departments over this 
issue. 

“There have already been 
walkouts in a number of of- 
fices. and if out of the protest 
meetings members take other 
industrial action that would 
not be surprising - but it is up 
to them." 


The unions involved have 
agreed on a comprehensive 
“statement of case” to put to 
the Foreign Secretary. They 
will be using that and other 
publicity to back their daim 
that the penalties imposed are 
vicious and vindictive. 

A dozen or so GCHQ work- 
ers have been disciplined after 
accepting a payment of £1 ,000 
to leave their unions but then 
rejoining. 

They have been told they 
will lose up to two pay incre- 
ments for two years, be debar- 
red from proposed new grad- 
ing structures; incur impaired 
promotion prospects and be 
removed from overseas list- 
ings. 

Yesterday’s decisions will 
be discussed by the TUCs 
general council tomorrow. 

Civil Service union leaders 
said that they were confident 
ofTUC support for the further 
action now planned. They 
rejected government claims 
that the penalties were the 
responsibility of GCHQ man- 
agement- 

Mr McCall said: “The Gov- 
ernment is accountable for 
actions of management in the 
Civil Service.” 


Court reduces 
jail terms 
for pit strikers 

Two striking miners who 
attacked a working colleague 
in his home during the miners' 
strike had three-year jail sen- 
tences reduced to two years in 
the Court of Appeal in Lon- 
don yesterday. 

Lord Lane, the Lord Chief 
Justice, allowing appeals by 
Martin and Nigel Hodgson, 
who are brothers, said: “We 
feel that the passage of time 
permits us to extend a mea- 
sure of leniency in the hope 
that it may serve to help heal 
the many breaches caused by 
that terrible strike.” 

Martin, aged 22, and Nigel 
Hodgson, aged 25. were jailed 
on November S last year for 
causing Mr Michael Fletcher 
grievous bodily harm. 

Lord Lane said that the 
attack by the brothers and 
other striking miners on Mr 
Fletcher at his Castleford 
home, was appalling. 

He was struck with a pick- 
axe handle and a piece of 
metal while his pregnant wife 
and two small children were 
upstairs. 


Mortuary libel 
action won 
by pathologist 

Dr Geoffrey Andrews, a 
pathologist, won libel damages 
in the High Court yesterday 
over allegations that condi- 
tions in ins mortuary were 
frightening and below 
standard. 

Mr Stuart Barber, a union 
official, had alleged in a report 
to the South Gwent Health 
Authority in March 1980 that 
conditions at the St Woolos 
Hospital mortuary failed to 
comply with Government stan- 
dards. He said Dr Andrews 
was responsible for unaccept- 
able risks of infection 

Mr Barber, Cardiff area 
officer for the National Union 
of Public Employ ees, said that 
the patbolgist was personally 
responsible for neglecting 
proper steps to ensure the 
safety of mortuary staff and 
failed to warn them when they 
were required to handle highly 
infections bodies. 

Mr Barber now accepted 
that the allegations were false, 
apologized and agreed to pay 
ap p ropriat e nndisdosed dam- 
ages and all legal costs. 


Prisoner died 24 hours 
after pronounced fit 


A doctor pronounced a 
prisoner fit to remain in a 
tail's punishment block 24 
hours before his death from 
kidney failure and heart prob- 
lems. ’ an inquest was told 
yesterday. 

Dr Josef Mieszkowski. se- 
nior medical officer at Exeter 
Prison, took the decision de- 
spite a deterioration in Mark 
Hogg's condition. 

Three hour? later, after 
Hogg wem into convulsions 
and developed breathing diffi- 
culties. he had to walk 300 
yards to the prison hospital. 
He was taken to hospital in 
Exeter, but died next morning. 

The long-running inquest 
has heard allegations from a 
fellow prisoner, Philip Ruth- 
erford. aged 26, that Hogg, of 
Russia Dock Road, east Lon- 
don. was kicked and punched 
by up to eight policemen at 


Yeovil after they were recap- 
tured after an escape, and by 
prison officers on their return j 
to Exeter on September 27. 

Yesterday. Dr Mieszkowski 
said that he examined Hogg 
three times; on each occasion 
he complained of vomiting 
and abdominal pains. 

The doctor diagnosed aj 
stomach bug. "I was perfectly! 
satisfied there was no evi-| 
dence of internal injury. 

But the day after the third ! 
visit — 24 hours before Hogg ' 
died — there was a deteriora - 1 
tion. His eyes were “puffy", he 
was spitting blood, still com- 
plaining of sickness and pain, 
and bad a cut lip. 

"I was surprised that his 
condition had changed- Then? 
was evident deterioration in 
fais condition,” Dr! 
Mieszkowski said. 

The hearing continues 



Oxford St 
facelift 
proposed 

By Mark Dowd 

Plans for a comprehensive 
facelift to take Oxford Street 
into the twenty-first century 
were unveiled yesterday. 

Proposals in the interim 
report of Westminster City 
CoundTs Oxford Street Steer- 
ing Group tall short of com- 
plete pedestrianizatiou, but 
taxis would be banned between 
Orchard Street and Oxford 
Circus as part of a short-term 
experiment. 

The report, announced by 
Mr Alan Bradley, planning 
and development committee 
chairman, suggests that one 
way to accommodate the dis- 
placement problem would be 
to provide more tan ranks in 
the streets which cross Oxford 



An artist's impressions of an Oxford Street for pedestrians: top left cleared of taxis and, top 
right bosses too; the map shows taxi crossing points. 


'Street ensuring that no one 
need walk more than 100 
yards for a cab. 

The steering group's traffic 
survey disclosed that 1,500 
vehicles an hour pass through 
the street during shopping 
hours. Nearly half of these are 
.taxis, most of which do not use 
the area for picking up or 
setting down but simply as a 
convenient through route 
across one of London's busiest 
traffic arteries. 

Bnses might also be diverted 
in the long term, but the task 
of re-routing the 21 services 


and 340 buses an hour was 
deemed to be a much more 
complex and costly operation. 

“In recent years, Oxford 
Street has become a victim of 
its own success. Overcrowded 
pavements, pollution, noise 
and general clutter are all 
detracting from what should 
be a shopping showpiece," Mr 
Bradley said. 

“The street has an unac- 
ceptably high number of acci- 
dents. 

Mr Bradley and Mr Harry 
Shepherd, director of the Ox- 


ford Street Traders’ Associa- 
tion, confirmed that it was a 
consultative document and 
that “nothing would be done 
without careful consideration 
of the effect on adjacent resi- 
dential areas". 

Mr Arnold Sandler, chair- 
man of the licensed Taxi 
Drivers' Association, was less 
impressed. He described the 
traffic survey in the report as 
“inadequate”, and said he 
would be approaching the 
Office of Fair Trading if any 
moves were made to imple- 
ment the partial ban on taxis. 


Lord Home of the Hirsel, 
the former Prime Minister, 
last night urged the Govern- 
ment and its successor to press 
ahead with completion or the 
Trident missile programme to 
give Britain a new strategic 
deterrent in 10 years' time. 

There was little bargaining 
power left in Polaris, "and the 
Russians know it”, he said. 

President Ronald Reagan’s 
Strategic Defence Initiative 
(SD1) would have to be seen to 
work before Naio would want 
to consider any changes in its 
defences. But it looked as if it 
would be 10 years before 
enough SDI hardware ap- 
peared to carry any conviction 
with the allies. 

Lord Home was speaking in 
London at the Brassey's De- 
fence Publishers annual din- 
ner to an audience which 
included the chiefs of staff of 
the Royal Navy and the RAF. 
and Senator John Towerihe. 
the former Geneva arms 
negotiator. 

But despite Lord Home's 
failh in the system, a book 
being published by Brassey's 
this week will question the 
Government's decision to buy 
Trident. 

Dr Colin Mclnnes. a de- 
fence analyst, says in Trident: 
The Only Option that British 
defence policy is now ap- 
proaching a financial crisis to 
which Trident is a big 
contributor. 


im for 


carrier 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs 
Correspondent 

Fraudsters who try to bring 
trumped-up insurance claims 
of shipping losses have been 
dealt a serious blow by a recent 
judgement from the London 
Commercial Court, the Lon- 
don marine insurance commu- 
nity said yesterday. 

The court has found in 
favour of the insurers. Alliance 
Assurance Company, of Lon- 
don. in the case of the loss of a 
bulk carrier. Captain Panagos 
DP, which grounded in the 
Red Sea in 1982 and subse- 
quently caught fire. 

The claim for a loss of about 
£6 million plus interest, was 
rejected by leading London 
insurers on the ground that the 
vessel had been scuttled. Their 
case before the Comnunerrial 
Court has been upheld after a 
40-day bearing. 

Mr Alan Birch, marine 
claims manager of the Sun 
Alliance Group of which the 
Alliance Assurance Company 
is part, said: “It is a very 
welcome result 

The claim was brought 
jointly by the mortgagee bank. 
Continental Illinois Bank and 
Trust Company, of Chicago, 
who the judge said were 
innocent parties, with the own- 
ers, Xenofon Maritime SA, of 
Panama.

OVERSEAS NEWS 



A large explosion in a 
Bulgarian sled plant has killed 
a number of people, including 
Polish metaHurgkai experts, 

4 according to official sources in 
Warsaw. 

Reports from Bulgaria indi- 
cated that eight Foies had 
died, but did not give any 
other casualty figures. - 

The Bulgarian Prime Minis- 
ter, Mr Gebrgi Atanasov, has 
appointed one-of his deputies' 
to supervise the recovery op- 
eration and a Polish sled 
specialist has been included in 
the team. 

First information about the 
blast investigation in Sredno- 
gorye on Monday was dis- 
closed yesterday by the Polish 


Fkdm Roger Bayes* Warsaw 
government spokesman, Mr 
. Jerzy Urban, who described h 
as a tragic accident. 

He said that .Poles were 
-among the dead, though he 
could not give an exact num- 
ber, and four were on the 
critical list 

The Poles have been help- 
ing to modernize the steel null 
in Srednogorye as pan of a 
Bulgarian drive to improve 
the quality and output-of its 
rolled steeL 

This spring, the Steel Minis- 
ter, Mr Toncfao Chakurov, 
was dismissed and. the Mer 
chanical Engineering Ministry 
was scrapped. 

Poland, one of the biggest 
steel producers in the Soviet 


bloc, often hires, put its spe- 
cialists as advisers to neigh- 
bouring countries. 

With little information 
available from the Bulgarian 
news agency. Sofepress, it was 
impossible to gauge the real 
scope of the explosion. 

But diplomats in 'Soviet 
: bloc countries assumed that it 
must be serious. 

Bulgarian analysts said the 
man in charge of the investiga- 
tion team would be other the 
Deputy Premier, Mr Ognyan 
Doynov, aged 51, or the first 
deputy premier, Mr. Stoyan 
Markov. 

Mr Doynov is thought to be 
the man most likely to succeed 
the Head of State, Mr Todor 
Zhivkov. 


Air Force may fill Challenger gap 


Washington (NYT) — In a 
major expansion of the 
Administration’s unmanned 
rocket programme, the Air 
Force has plans to build a 
mid-sized rocket to lift mili- 
tary payloads grounded by the 
loss of the space shuttle 
Challenger. 

Mr Edward Aldridge, who 
was appointed secretary of the 
Air Force two months ago, 
said the rocket's manufacturer 
would also be required to 
develop a commercial version 
of the vehicle to compete with 
4 Ariane, the European pro- 
gramme that launches private 
commercial satellites. 


Air Force officials said die 
White House and Congress 
had not granted final approval 
for the mid-sized rocket, but 
there had been 1 no major 
objections and the formal 
request for proposals from 
Aerospace companies was ex- 
pected. to be . sent out in the 
next few weeks. 

The proposed non-reusable 
rockets would cost tens of 
millions of dollars each, but 
would likely prove a less 
expensive method of launch- 
ing satellites than the shuttle. 

Officials said delivery of the 
first rockets could come in 
1989 or 1990. 


Meanwhile, White House 
officials say scepticism is 
growing over whether the 
Administration should build a 
replacement orbiter for the 
Challenger, which was de- 
stroyed with its crew of seven 
on January 28. 

A senior Administration of- 
ficial, who asked not to. be 
identified, said that despite 
President Reagan’s general en- 
dorsement of a fourth orbiter, 
“we're all in a show-me 
attitude”. ; /. 

The cost of a new arbiter 
would be between $2.5 and $4 
billion (£1.6 and £2.6 billion).

Churches plead for 
death row two 


By Nicholas Beeston 


The British Council of 
Churches . yesterday inter- 
vened on behalf of a convicted 
British-born drug trafficker 
and his Australian accom- 
plice, who could be hanged 
this week in Malaysia. 

The Council sent cables to 
the King of Malaysia and the 
Prime Minister appealing for 
clemency for John Kevin Bar- 
-Jow, aged 29, a British-born 
Australian national, of Stoke- 
on-Trent. and Australian Bri- 
an Chambers, aged 28. who 
may face the gallows as early 
as tomorrow for smuggling 
heroin. 

A spokesman for the British 
Council of Churches said the 
plea for mercy could be the 
last chance for the men on 
death row. 

So far. petitions from the 
British and Australian govern- 
ments for the sentences to be 
commuted have been turned 
down, and last week the 


Malaysian Pardons Board flat- 
ly rejected a final appeal. 

If the death sentence is 
carried, out, the two men will 
be the first Westerners to be 
executed under Malaysia's 
stringent drug laws. . 

• KUALA LUMPUR: The 
mother of John Kevin Barlow

Sooth African trade links under pressure 

Doubts bring fall in US investment 


From Michael Binyon 
Washington 

The United States is South 
Africa's hugest trading part- 
ner. Last year total US invest- 
ment came to $1.3 billion 
(£867 million). 

There arc still 260 Ameri- 
can firms doing business in 
South Africa, among them the 
big multi-nationals such as 
IBM, Kodak, Ford and Dress- 
er. But the political crisis and 
growing doubts over the 
country's fittnre have had a 


noticeable effect in the past 
five years. 

Total American investment 
peaked in 1981 at $2.6 billion 
- double today's figure — and 
is dow falling rapidly. Last 
year 39 American firms pulled 
out and another 14 have left 
so for this year. 

But the Investor Responsi- 
bility Research Centre, a study 
groapinsed here, said that all 
out four of the firms that have 
left have been the smaller 
companies, employing less 


than 500 people. They say the 
general depression in South 
Africa is a more likely reason 
for their departure than politi- 
cal opposition to apartheid. 

Bui banks have moved 
more swiftly. In 1984 only 
three of the top 100 American 
banks bad tough restrictions 
on loans to South Africa. This 
year some 27 have banned 
investment in both the private 
and public sector. 

The move to stop American 
companies doing business in 


British investment already cut back 

By Teresa Poole 


British companies are Ekety 
to find any veto on new 
investment in South Africa 
slightly ironic. 

For the past few years a 
□umber at companies have 
been tr yi ng to limit their 
exposure and the level of net 
investment has fallen off. The 
fall in 1984 is likely to have 
been repeated last year. 

. Britain is the largest foreign 
investor in South Africa and 
toe Department ofTrade and 
Iodestry e stima te -of British 
investment at toe end of 1984 
was £6 bHUon, split equally 
between direct Investment by 
companies and portfolio hold- 
ings of shares. Bank loans 
were £63 billion but had fallen 
to £SJS billion by the end of 
1985. 

According to the UK-South 


Africa Trade Association, the 
market value of British invest- 
ment at £6 biffion has almost 
halved since 1982 bat such 
figures trad to be misleading. 

There has certainly been 
some d isin v estm ent, but the 
slump mainly represents the 
collapse in the rand which has 
devalued South African assets 
in sterling terms. . . . 

Market 'values have also 
declined in the local currency 
as the political situation has 
-become more unsettled. 

Britain is South Africa’s 
third largest trading partner 
with £990 nrillioB of imports. 
Fruit and veg e tab l es, the main 
candidate for sanctions, ac- 
count for £136 million, indus- 
trial raw materials for £274 
million, and manefartnres for 
£327 million.

South Africa has only just 
begun to acquire any bite. The 
House of Representatives has 
voted for complete disinvest- 
ment, and a total trade embar- 
go. Bui the measure is unlikely 
to be adopted by the Senate 
and. even if it were. President 
Reagan would be sure to veto 
it 

Until recently the only do- 
mestic pressure on American 
firms came from dissident 
shareholders and universities 
that, under pressure from 
students, were beginning to 
sell stock in companies repre- 
sented in South Africa. Indeed 
in some quarters companies 
have been applauded for stay- 
ing, because of their labour 
and racial policies which, it is 
said, have encouraged the 
fight for equal opportunity 
elsewhere by Macks. 

Some 166 of the 260 Ameri- 
can firms have now signed the 
so-called Sullivan Principles. 
This labour code, named after 
a Presbyterian minister who 
suggested it, guarantees blacks 
in American firms equal op- 
portunities and promotion 
prospects. The Principles are 
claimed to have encouraged 
black trade unionists in South 
Africa to agitate for better 
conditions in other companies 
in South Africa. ‘ 

. The Reagan Administration 
opposes a pull-out on the 
grounds that this would hurt 
the black population more 
than the whites. 


Armed 

struggle 

defended 

byANC 

By Sheila Gunn 
Political Staff 

Black Sooth Africans must 
intensity their armed struggle 
against apartheid, whether or 
not sanctions are Imposed, Mr 
Thabo Mbeki, director of 
information for the African 
National Congress, told MPS 
yesterday. 

He said the banned ANC 
would not suspend violence 
without a willingness by the 
Sooth African regime to dis- 
mantle apartheid- So far the 
measures taken by Pretoria 
had been cosmetic. 

“Our violence is entirely the 
response to the situation creat- 
ed by Sooth Africa. It came 
about because the ANC be- 
came illegal and if we want to 
change it we have no choice 
hot to take np arms.” 

The release of Nr Nelson 
Mandela ami other political 
prisoners, although an impor- 
tant step, wo old not create a 
democratic system of govern- 
ment and the freed men would 
simply join in the straggle, he 
added. 

Giving evidence to the 
Commons’ all-party Select 
Committee on Foreign Affairs, 
he warned against imposing 
selective sanctions. 

“We are asking for compre- 
hensive mandatory sanctions 
— and now — because we think 
sanctions work. 

“We are concerned about 
selective sanctions. We think 
that is to remove from sanc- 
tions their impact because 
they conld survive it To do it 
little by little — they would 
have time to adapt.” 

He added: “It is in oar 
interests to ensure that the 
Sooth African economy is as 
little destroyed as possible 
because dearly the new Sooth 
Africa most address many 
very serious problems of edu- 
cation, housing and health.” 

Terror group 
claims 
Paris bomb 

From Diana Geddes 
Paris 

A left-wing terrorist group, 
Black War. has claimed re- 
sponsibility for the bomb 
attack against the Paris offices 
of Rothmans, the cigarette 
company. No one was hurt 
and only minor damage 
caused. 

In a letter addressed to 
Agence France Press, the 
group, which first appeared in 
December, said that the attack 
on Saturday was carried out in 
protest against “the South 
African interests of Rothmans 
and Peter Stuyvesant". 


Contra head urges more covert aid 


From Martha Honey, San Jos£ 


A senior anti-Sandinisia 
leader has called for resump- 
tion of United States covert 
aid to the anti-Govemment 
Contras, terming the Congres- 
sional view of the humanitar- 
ian aid question “a night- 
mare”. 

Senor Alfonso Robelo, one 
of the three leaders of the 
United Nicaraguan Opposi- 
tion, denied reports that mil- 
lions of dollars in human- 
itarian aid had been pocketed 
by Contra leaders or used for 
high living by commanders 
while troops in the field, went 


short of food, uniforms and 
medicines. 

Bui be conceded that “there 
may have been some irregu- 
larities ami we arc looking into 
iL” 

He predicted that, despite 
recent criticism of the Contra 
leadership. Congress would 
today approve President 
Reagan's $100 million (£66 
million) aid package for new 
humanitarian and military 
aid. 

Senor Robelo was speaking 
at a press conference here to 
announce a new unity accord 


between UNO and the 
“Southern Opposition Bloc” 
(BOS), the two main Contra 
umbrella organizations. Senor 
Robelo and the BOS leader, 
Senor Alfredo Cezar, denied 
the accord was timed to 
coincide with the Congressio- 
nal vote or was made possible 
by the recent resignation of 
Commander Eden Pastors 
from BOS. 

Senor Paste ra, who has 
opposed unity with UNO, 
retired from the guerrilla war 
Iasi month. 


Athens denies blocking 
peace with Turkey 

From Mario Modiano, Athens 
Greece yesterday spurned 
Turkish a c c u sations that it 


was deliberately obstructing 
the resolution of problems 
between the two neighbours 
and allies. 

The charges woe made on 
Monday by Mr Targut Ozal, 
the* Turkish Prime Minister, 
who accused Greece of mam- 
taming “sustained hostility” 
towards Turkey. 

Mr MBtiadis Papaioannou, 
the Greek Government 
spokesman, said Athens re- 



fused to open a dialogue with 
Mr Ozal who was making it a 
practice to deal with problems 
through interviews based on 
“inaccurate and groundless 
facts and arguments”. 

The Turkish Prime Minis- 
ter argued tint' Greece had 
rejected all the olive branches 
he . had extended. Instead, 
Greece was taking anti-Tnrk- 
ish positions in all iaternation- 
al forums, be said. 

Mr Papaioannou said the 
Greek reply was contained in 
die Prime Minister’s speech to 
Parliament last December. 
Then, Mr Papandreoa had 
said Greece would have ac- 
cepted gladly Turkey’s olive 
branches if they had. been 
sincere and meaningful. 
“However, die' direct, con- 
crete, and serious threat posed 
by Turkey's arbitrary claims 
and provocations against 
Greece, leave no doubt about 
Ankara's expansionist 


Mr Ozal; accused Greece of 
“sustained hostility”. 


Mr Ozal dismissed the 
Greek perception of a Turkish 
-military rtmat as ^somewhat 
artificial and grossly 
exaggerated". 


£40m fraud in 
Rockefeller 
will alleged 

New York (Reuter) — The 
last surviving granddaughter 
of John Rockefeller senior was 
the victim of a massive fraud 
when she granted her estimat- 
ed $60 million (£40 million) 
estate to her second husband, 
her children alleged yesterday. 

The allegation was con- 
tained in court papers filed on 
behalf of the children of 
Margaret Rockefeller Strong 
de Cuevas de Larrain, who 
died last December at the age 
of 88. The will in question left 
her estate to her husband, 
Seflor Rainmndo de Lanai n, a 
Chilean-born marquis who 
until recently served as cultur- 
al attach £ at the Chilean 
Embassy in Madrid. 

In 1977, at the age of 80, she 
married Senor de Lanaio, 
who was 42 years old. She had 
previously been married to de 
Larrain's unde, George de 
Cuevas, for 30 years . 

Their daughter, Elizabeth 
de Cuevas, said in papers on 
file in Manhattan Surrogate 
Court that her mother had 
“always appeared to be heavi- 
ly sedated” from shortly after 
her marriage to Senor de 
Larrain until her death.

leadership for the EEC 


^FroinKdiaiidOwen 


■With toe European Com- 
mupityandthe United States 
still deadlocked over their 
trade dispute, . Britain's six- 
month presidency of the EEC 
Council of Ministers is set to 
get off to a contentious start 
next Tuesday, which coincides 
with the American 'deadline 
for raising tariffs against EEC 


: Sir Geoffrey Howe, the 
Foreign • Secretary and EEC 
President-designate, appears 
unruffled by the prospect of a 
spiralling transatlantic trade 
war. 

“I still hope this can be. 
resolved through negotiation 
rather than dash,** he 
yesterday as the American 
deadline for the imposition of 
sanctions a gamgf ffC food- 
studs approached with no sign 
that it might be deferred, a 
move Sir Geoffrey had mged 
in Luxembourg last week. 

But the EEC “must demon- 
strate hs ability u> match 
measure with counter- 
measure;*’ besakL 

EEC officials testify that 
behind Sir Geoffrey’s mild 
manner and lawyer’s caution 
lies a powerful determination 
coupled with impatience at 
delay. 

"This is tbe last time T 
appear before yon as a mere 
Foreign Secretary ” Sir Geof- 
frey said with his usual sdf- 
deprecation last week in 
Luxembourg, as he prepared 
to take over the EEC presiden- 
cy from Mr Hans .van .den 
Broek, the personable Dutch 
Foreign Munster. 

“From now on I shall have 
added lustre,’* he remarked.

US still 
unsure 
on summit 

From Christopher Thomas 
Washington 

President Reagan is still 
unsure whether Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, the Soviet leader, 
is wiUnig to meet him later 
this yem; although . White 
House officials say they are 
encouraged by ’’positive 
signals** from Moscow - that a 
summit could be held, in 
November or December, r 

Mr Reagan wteHmaded a 
personal note from v Mr 
Gorbachov on Monday by Mr 
Yuri Dubinin, foe new Soviet 
Ambassador to Washington, 

No dale has yet been set for 
a meeting between MrGeorge 
.Shultz, the Secretary of State, 
and Mr Eduard 
Shevardnadze, the Soviet For- 
eign Minister, to prepare for a 
summit. Moscow cancelled a 
previous planned meeting af- 
ter the American attack on 
Libya. 

In an int e r v ie w with the Los 
Angeles Times, Mr Reagan 
said Mr Gorbachov had given 
every indication that he want- 
ed a summit Relations with 
Moscow were on a “more 
solid footing than they have 
been for a long time". 

• GENEVA: A Soviet dep- 
uty minister said yesterday the 
US had put its “ntititaiy 
machin e** into high fear in all 
areas of the conventional and 
nuclear arms race (Reuter 
repents). 

The Deputy Foreign Affairs 
Minister, Mr Vladimir - Pet- 
rovsky, told a 40-nation disar- 
mament conference at the 
European headquarters of the 
United Nations: “We are wit- 
nessing an armed uprising by 
the United Stares agatnst the 
realities of our times.” 


dent, but the remark reveals 
that Sir Geoffrey takes the 
responsibility of shaping EEC 
policy seriously, ana believes 
Britain can - provide 
“energetic” leadership. ; 

It wjjQ certainly need to, 
given the range of problems 
the EEC feces over the next six 
months. 

A new round of GATT 
(General Agreement on Tar- 
iffs and Trade) is due to open 
in September; and Sir Geof- 
frey identifies four key ele- 
ments in the EEC position: the 
need to liberalize world trade, 
the discussion of agricultural 
subsidies in both Europe and 
US, trade tensions with Japan, 

and the transatlantic trade 
row. • 

Sir Geoffrey puts an opti- 
mistic gloss on the range of 
troublesome, foreign issues 
confronting the EEC, with 
Britain’s foreign policy experi- 
ence in mind. Britain has 


some knowledge of how to 
deal with South Africa in an 
attempt to reform of even end 
apartheid; it also has "experi- 
ence in EOst-West d&ente. 

The attempt this year to 
reach" , a consensus on terror- 
ism was hot a glorious episode 
u European history. Sir Geof- 
frey admits. 

The British view of EEC 
foreign policy is that it is 
surprisingly successful m view 
of the disparate interests the 
presidency has. to coordinate. 
"Before the EEC-was invented 
any concerted response to 
events would have beenmi- 
raculons and exceptional,” Sir 
Geoffrey said. “Now there are 
headlines when Europe fails to 
agree.” 

. The feet remains that dur- 
ing the Dutch presidency in 
the first half of die year, the 
EEC failed to agree swiftly not 
only oh foreign issues, such as 
the Middle East, Chernobyl 


and terrorism, but also on 
pressing internal EEC prob- 
lems which Britain now 
inherits. 

Completion of the internal 
market, which is due by 1992, 
has progressed tins year, with 
the EEC taking an internal 
market decision a week. But

Despite some British reser- 
vations about the single Euro- 
pean act, or Treaty of Rome 
revisions; in which the inter- 
nal market programme is 
enshrined. Sir Geoffrey firmly 
intends to press ahead, mak- 
ing de-regulatioa of the air and 
road transport industries a top 
priority. ■ 

The British approach, in 
other words, is that if die EEC 
can 'focus on “spedfic issues 
people can identify with” — 
such as cheaper air feres -r- the 
negative image of the Com- 
munity m Britain will . be 
reversed, and so too win the 
often suspicious view the Eu-

In Sir Geoffrey’s view, it is 
tbe Europeans who have come 
closer to Britain over, for 
example, the need both to 
control EEC expenditure with- 
in a -framework of budget 
discipline and re fo rm the, 
common agricultural policy to 
avoid generating surpluses “to 
tbe point where we* ve got food 
coming out of our ears”. 

“We are taking over from 
the Dutch on the ran,” Sir 
Geoffrey maintains, adding 
that his aim over the next six 
months wfll be “to enhance 
Europe's political and trade 
standing”, while ensuring that 
the EEC makes “a real contri- 
bution to the lives of ordinary 
people”

Israel to decide on Shin Bet inquiry 


Israel's top politicians and 
lp gal advisers met last night to 
deride what form an inquiry 
into Shin Bet, the lonen 
counter-intelligence agency, 
should take. 

The politicians included Mr 
Shimon Peres, the Prime Min- 
ister, Mr Yitzhak Shamir, the 
vice-Prime Minister, Mr 
Yitzhak Rabin, the Defence 
Minister, and Mr Yitzhak 
Modal, the Justice Minister.

ney General, was seekingtiteir 
opinion on howto investigate 
Sun Bet for covering, .up the

way in which two Palestinian 
bus hijackers were killed two 
years ago. 

Mr Harish is known to have 
decided fort some kind of 
investigation is unavoidable, 
but that it must be secret 

He has three main options. 
The first is to approve the 
police investigation already 
ordered by his predecessor; 
Mr Yitzhak Zamir. 

A second choice is to ordera 
full judicial commiss io n of 
inquiry by. three judges. They 
would have the legal right to 
investigate, everything they 


considered relevant and to call 
any witnesses they wanted. 

The third possibility is a 
one-man inquiry by a senior 
legal or military figure. This 
mikhod is largely discredited 
becanse two previous investi- 
gations along these lines have 
foiled to discover the truth. 

A qigpgtoH alternative to 
an inquiry has been to dismiss 1 
the head of 9tin Bet, Mr 1 
Avraham Shalom, who is 
alleged to have masterminded 
the cover-up. 

Mr Harish is expected to 
announcelus derision today.-

A new generation of better-

given way to pr agmatism. 

Though the economic crisis 
has dramatically lowered stan- 
dards of firing in the more 
prosperous parts of the coon- 
try, it has also stimulated 
debate. The bureaucracy of 
Yugoslavia is frequently open- 
ly attacked in official news- 
papers. 

Similarly, the growth of

Spy fever is again gripping 
Poland. The country's top 
counter-intelligence expert 
yesterday claimed that West- 
ern agents made contact with 
70,000 Poles abroad and that 
some returned undercover 
with instructions to tap the 
communication lines and 
break the computer codes of 
the secret police. 

General Wladyslaw Pozoga, 
deputy Interior Minister, said 
that special training camps for 
“subversives” had been set up 
outside Munich in West Ger- 
many and recently in New 
Jersey. 

“The aims of people trained 
in such centres are first of all 
terrorist attacks on Polish 
institutions abroad — such as 
the storming of a Polish 
mission in Switzerland in 
1982 - and sabotage ope- 
rations in Poland. 

“The reward after three 
years of such service is ertizen-

Other equipment smuggled 
to the Solidarity underground 
included explosives, hand 
guns, gas, bullet-proof vests

expose of Western spy opera- 
tions against Poland follows 
the arrest of Mr Bogdan 
Charyton, aged 44, a masseur, 
who confessed that he was a

The interview reveals con-

From Charles Harrison, Nairobi - - - - 


Twelve African- countries, 
including some which were 
badly hn by drought and 
femme in 1984 and 1985, now 
have laige surpluses of food 
after good rams 
The United Nations Food 
and Agriculture Organization 
(FAO), after surveying the 
African food situation, says 
aid 'is urgently needed to 
subsidize the purchase of 2.1 

M . million tons of surplus food 

Mr Pentrovsky: US^rmed | awl its transport to other 
^ ■“* w *- w African countries. 


Zimbabwe alone has a sur- 
plus of 1.2 milli on tons of 
cereals, and the Ivory Coast 
and Kenya each have 250,000 
tons available for export. Be- 
nin, Burkina Faso, Chad, Ma- 
lawi, Mali, Niger, Senegal, 
Togo and some parts ofSudan 
also have surpluses. 

The FAO advocates more 
“triangular deals”, under 
which donor countries finance 
the purchase of surplus food' 
and its transport to deficit i 
areas.

Garcia pledges 
his life to 
defending Peru 
democracy 


Lima (Reuter) - President 
Garcia of Peru, lacing his 
most serious crisis after the 
deaths of at least ISO leftist 
guerrilla inmates in prison 
mutinies, has pledged his life 
to defend Peru against mili- 
tarization. 

"Here the armed forces 
obey the civil power elected by 
the people " Senor Garcia said 
yesterday. “I guarantee this 
with the force of the people 
and my own life." 

The guerrillas died in the 
revolts that began last week 
when the police and military 
stormed the prisons after a 
lipoff that the guerrillas were 
storing arms. 

The military said 124 Mao- 
ist Sendero Luminoso (Shin- 
ing Path) guerrilla inmates 
were lolled as the authorities 
regained control of Luri- 
gancfio prison and 30 were 
killed on the island prison of 
El FrontOn. Two inmates were 
also reported killed at a 
women's prison. 

Unofficial estimates said 
the final death toll could be as 
high as 300. 

Senor Garcia has ordered a 
military inquiry into possible 
excesses committed by troops 
at Lurigancho. 

A left-wing opposition lead- 
er, Senator Javier Diez 
Canseco, has accused the mili- 
tary of executing 60 inmates at 


Lurigancho after they sur- 
rendered. 

“The democracy that com- 
mits errors and excesses is a 
democracy that knows how to 
sanction them to avoid them," 
Senor Garcia said 

He was speaking at a cere- 
mony yesterday honouring 
Herr Willy Brandt, the Social- 
ist International president 
with Peru's highest honour, 
the Order of the Sun, at the 
end of the group's congress. 

The Socialist International, 
which includes the world's 
main socialist and social dem- 
ocratic parties, welcomed Se- 
hor Garcia's statement, saying 
there was a clear determina- 
tion “to learn all the facts and 
to guarantee punishment of all 
those found responsible for 
any wrongdoing.'’ 

Meanwhile, left-wing guer- 
rillas from the Tupac Amaru 
Revolutionary Movement,^ 
group uninvolved in the pris- 
on revolts, took over the 
offices of four Western news 
agencies in Lima yesterday. 

The guerrillas, armed with 
revolvers, entered the offices 
of Reuter, Agence France 
Presse, Ansa of Italy and DPA 
of West Germany, and de- 
manded that employees file a 
statement calling the military 
crackdown the bloodiest event 
in Peruvian history. They left 
without harming anyone.

Lima jail deaths mar 
Socialist congress 


Lima (AFP) — The Socialist 
International 17th congress in 
Lima was to have Men an 
important event for Pern, but 
many delegates were distract- 
ed by the slaughter in the 
suppression of the prison 
rebellions. 

Some delegates, albeit a 
minority, considered President 
Garcia and his Government 
were guilty of an atrocity. 

The majority adhered to the 
general theme of the final 
document which said that now 
was the time to help Pern’s 


democrats overcome their 
moral crisis and consolidate 
their democracy. 

The document was not for- 
mally approved because die 
congress ended in confusion, 
with hardly any of its leaders 
present at Monday’s dosing 
session.

Ontario doctors defy fee law 


The medical profession ip 
Ontario, Canada’s most popu- 
lous province, has been 
thrown into turmoil by a curb 
on doctors' fees imposed by 
the provincial legislature. 

For two weeks doctors in 
the province have been hold- 
ing strikes in protest against a 
Bill to stop “extra bfflinc’’: 
levying a surcharge on pa- 
tients above the fees that 
doctors collect from Ontario’s 
medical insurance {dan. 

The controversial Bill was 
passed by the legislature in 
Toronto on Friday and went 
into effect at the weekend. 

But the Ontario Medical 
Association, representing 
1 7,000 practitioners, vowed to 
defy the legislation and called 


From John Best, Ottawa 
on members to continue their 
walkouts. 

There were reports that the 
doctors might be wQling to call 
off their strike if the province 
agrees to an early judicial 
review of the Act's constitu- 
tional validity. But Dr Edward 
Moran, the association's gen- 
eral secretary, said there was 
“no chance” of a settlement 
on that basis. 

The association has had 
considerable success in getting 
doctors to close their surger- 
ies. The response ranges from 
an estimated 25 per cent in 
some areas to 75 per cent in 
others. Most doctors do not 
“extra bill"- 

Scattered closures of hospi- 
tal emergency wards and oper- 
ating ffwiitfog pave been 


causing the health authorities 
increasing alarm. 

The problem of emergency 
care was spotlighted by the 
widely-publicized case of a 
pregnant woman who suffered 
a miscarriage after being 
turned away from a hospital 
- east of Toronto. 

The Government Insis ts 
that it has no option but to 
outlaw “extra billing" since it 
feces the loss of SC50 million 
(£25 million) a year in federal 
transfer payments by allowing 
it to continue. 

A law passed three years ago 
by the federal Farframent 
imposes financial penalties on 
provinces which permit doc- 
tors to “extra bill" their 
patients. A majority of prov- 
inces no longer do so. 


Muldoon 
fears break 
in defence 
relations 

From Richard Long 
Wellington 

The former New Z ealan d 
Prime Minister, Sir Robert 
Muldoon, said yesterday that 
New Zealand was heading for 
an inevitable defence relation- 
ship breakdown with Britain 
and America. 

He was speaking after the 
Prime Minister, Mr David 
Lange, admitted there was 
little chance of resolving New 
Zealand’s Anzus row with 
Washington. - 

Mr Lange is due to meet the 
US Secretary of State, Mr 
George Shultz, in Manil a on 
Friday. 

Sir Robert, the Opposition 
spokesman on foreign affeirs, 
said Mr Lange could not make 
changes to the government's 
anti-nuclear legislation that i 
would satisfy both Washing- j 
ton and the left wing of the j 
Labour Party. 

When anti-nuclear legisla- 
tion took effect later this year, 
America would withdraw its 
defence commitment and 
Britain would end its defence 
co-operation with New 
Zealand. 

The proposed laws would 
ban visits to New Zealand by 
ships capable of using nuclear j 
power. 

Mr Lange said the US could 
not reach an agreement with 
New Zealand for fear of 
sparking a similar ban on 
nuclear warships in Australia 

The prospects of amending 
' the law to meet British objec- 
tions now seemed remote. 


| US grants 
attacked 
by Aquino 
aides 

Manila (Reuter) - IVlr 
George . Shultz, the US Secre- 
tary of State, praised Presi- 
dent Aquino and her Cabinet 
after arriving here from Brunei 
yesterday, despite Strong criti- 
cism by senior Philippine 
officials of American aid 
levels. 

Mr Shultz said he had been 
impressed when he was here 
last month with progress op 
political, economic and mili- 
tary reforms. More had been 
done since then, he said, 
adding: “It is a very encourag- 
ing; picture." 

Mr Shultz and Vice-Presi- 
dent Salvador Laurel of the 
Philippines will today sign a 
S200-million (£133 million) 

grant agreement for agricul- 
tural and educational projects. ■ 
Washington gave $35 million 
in food aid a few weeks ago. 

But senior Philippine offi- 
cials complained Washington 
was not doing enough to help 
Manila oat of the economic 
morass left by the former 
president. Mr Ferdinand 
Marcos. 

Mr Joker Arroyo, the Exec- 
utive Secretary, said earlier 
tint the $200 million was not 
aid, but rent for Clark Air 
Base and the Subic Bay naval 
base, the biggest US military 
installations in the region. 

Washington plans to give 
the Philippines $500 million 
in aid this year, much of it in 
straight grants. The total is 
$150 million more than would 
have gome to the Marcos 
Government

Jayewardene 
postpones 
Moscow visit 

From Vjptha Yapa 
Colombo 

President Jayewardene of Sri 
Lanka has postponed his 12- 
day visit to Russia, which was 
to have begun on Sunday, 
because Mr Mikhail 
Gorbachov, the Soviet leader, 
would not have been there. . 

Informed sources said there 
had been no official an- 
nouncement of the change in 
plans, but Mr Jayewardene 
had asked for new dates when 
Mr Gorbachov would be 
present. The visit is now likely 
to be in July. 

Meanwhile, the Sri Lankan 
leader has admitted that his 
country is buying arms from 
Pakistan and Israel. 

Reacting to a statement 
from India, alleging super- 
power involvement in Sri 
Lanka’s affeirs as arms were 
being bought from Pakistan 
and Israel Mr Jayewardene 
said: “We cannot be expected 
to fight the Tigers (the most 
militant Tamil guerrilla 
group) who are using the mast 
sophisticated weapons in the 
world until our Yart hands." 

He said he would like India 
to tell him from whom the 
Tigers were buying arms, 
where they were being trained, 
and which country was giving 
them a safe haven from which 
to send reinforcements to Sri 
fflnka.

One of these opponents is a 
Muslim preacher, Haji Audi 
Mappelahang Fatwa, aged 46, 
tin former chaplain of the 
Marble Commando Corps and 
head of the spiritual affitirs 
division of the Jakarta dty 
government 

. Chi December 23, 1985, 
Hup Fatwa was found guilty of 
subversion and sentenced to 18 
years in prison. His appeal 
has been rejected. 

Haji Fatwa has been repeat- 
edly in trouble with the au- 
thorities, and several tunes 
imprisoned since 1978, when 
he began to criticize openly the

officials of corruption, assert- 
ed that Muslims are politically 
terrorized and has opposed the

Many Muslims believe that 
Pancasm is designed by the 
Government to replace Islam. 
It is tills refusal to adopt it as 
the “sole foundation" of Indo- 
nesian life that appears to lie 
behind the arrests of Muslims.

SPECTRUM 




Death among the diehards 


at the 


Abbey 


A year of random beatings, controlled torture 
and no clothes was the lot of Cuban political 
prisoner and poet Armando Valladares. In 
the concluding extract from his memoirs, he 
also tells of his marriage, and of his release 
after more than two decades in Castro’s jails 




military service sent young nten 
who were actually against the 




system to the Ministry of the 
Interior. It was with the aid of one of 




N ineteen-sixty-two was a 
year of great events in 
Cuba. Late in the year 
there was the Soviet 
missile crisis, which 
brought the world to the threshold 
of atomic war; and earlier there was 
a high-level military - conspiracy 
aimed at bringing down the govern- 
ment. All this we heard on our 
forbidden radio. 

Massive executions were carried 
out throughout Cuba. At the prison 
some of the prisoners retaliated 
against the constant brutal treat- 
ment by the guards and a pitched 
battle ensued. Sergeant Naranjilo 
threw the first Soviet-made tear gas 
grenade, and Russian tanks aimed 
their guns at the Circulars where the 
prisoners were housed. 

It was during one of the infre- 
quent visits from our families that I 
met Martha for the first time. She 
was the daughter of Benito Lopez, a 
fellow prisoner. She was 14 years 
old and I was 24. I felt a great 
tenderness for her. She had under- 
gone the humiliating strip search by 
Die guards, yet in her shone a firm 
will, a mixture of tenderness and 
courage- 1 think that was what most 
impressed me about her. 

In spite of tremendous obstacles, 
Martha and I wrote to each other. 
Headquarters allowed us to bring in 
school notebooks, and I managed to 
send Martha instructions for pre- 
paring an invisible-ink solution. 
Every two months I would receive 
one of those notebooks, completely 
filled with her writing. 

I had an infallible method: I 
would take a big sheet of Lined 
paper, write in my secret message, 
and on top of it would write her a 
letter in ordinary pencil or ink, 
praising the good treatment I was 
receiving from the authorities. 

She was now 17 and we were 
planning our future together. For 
me her letters were a sweet firm 
support I knew there was someone 
who was thinking about me, waiting 
for me, besides my family. 

The cunning of our 'families in 
smuggling books in to us right 
through searches gave us an abun- 
dant supply of reading matter. 
There were not enough notebooks 
to go round, though, so when we 
finished one, we erased its pages 
with the sole of a tennis shoe and re- 
used it as many as five times. 

Among the prisoners malnutri- 
tion was taking its tolL Inmates 
began to faint during the head 
counts. For almost two years now 
proteins and vitamins had been 
utterly lacking in our diet Only 
flour, roasted commeal and candies 
could be included in the little “care” 
packages that our families sent, plus 
any powdered foodstuff that was 
not milk or chocolate. My mother 
made me some little cubes, that 
looked like candies, out of eggs and 
beef liver dried in the sun, pow- 
dered, thickened and bound with 
sugar. They tasted terrible^ but it 
meant I received some protein. 


On August 9, 1964, the formation 
of the first forced-labour squads was 
begun in the buildings which 
housed the political prisoners called 
the plantation or diehards: that is, 
those who would not join the 
rehabilitation programme. For no 
apparent reason the garrison broke 
into Building 6 blindly wielding 
truncheons, bayonets, rifles and 
electric cables. Lieutenant Porfirio 
Garcia, head of Internal Order, 
directed the search, bayonet in 
hand. He plunged bis bayonet into 
Ernesto Diaz Madrugada. just 
above the groin. Then, as Ernesto 
was falling. Sergeant Mammas, 
Porfirio's sidekick, stabbed him 
again, finishing him off 
The murder of Ernesto, the first 
casualty of forced labour, was 
committed to make us see- that the 
same thing could happen to any of 
us; that our lives were worthless. 














& i-mm 










At La Cabaiia the "rebels" refused 
to wear the blue uniform of the 
common and rehabilitated prison- 
ers. Their punishment was that they 
were deprived of any clothing during 
the vear they spent there. In Febntr 
ary] 1968 they were moved to 
Boniato Prison, at the extreme 
eastern end of the island, then back 
to La CabaHa. It was at La Cabana, 
in the first few months of 1969 , that 
the marriage of Martha Lopez and 
Armando Valladares took place .

LUIM IWI* : 

these recruits that the first denunci- 
ation of what was happening in the 
blackout cells in Boniato reached 
the outside world. It was written tn 
the margin of a copy of the official 
newspaper of the party, Granma. 
and was published abroad. 

My condition was alarming. My 
reflexes had gone. My symptoms 
were diagnosed as flaccid paraplegia 

due to malnutrition. About this 
time we heard of the death of Pedro 
Luis BoiteL after 53 days on hunger- 
strike (see below). He was a revolu- 
tionary, the first person I met when 
I arrival at La Cabana, in 1961. We 
had been as close as brothers. 

Castro denied the existence of 
concentration camps, political pris- 
oners, torture, crimes in the jails. 
Martha, however, had all the means 
necessary to help ns to let the world 
know the truth. 

A series - of circumstances then 
conspired to help me. After the 
rigorous investigations it always 
conducts. Amnesty International 
adopted me as a prisoner of 
conscience. Several groups in Wed 
Germany, Holland and Sweden 
worked unceasingly for me, and in 
great .part it is due to their

Freedom from fear: Armando Valladares and his wife, Martha, after his arrival in Paris, in October 1982 


S ome of us wanted to get 
married. We requested per- 
mission from ministry 
headquarters. Martha's fa- 
ther and I wanted her to be 
able to leave Cuba, to go and live 
with her brothers and sisters 
abroad. It was necessary for her 
safety, for she had been arrested and 
held by the political police for 
demonstrating her support of our 
hunger strike at La Cabana. 

One morning in a military office 
we signed the necessary legal docu- 
ments and were therefore married. 
That act had absolutely no spiritual 
significance for us. We would truly 
be husband and wife only when we 
were joined in a religious ceremony. 

As a special concession they gave 
us 15 minutes in die visitors' hall 
under the vigilance of the guards. 
But at least when Martha left Cuba, 
she would go as my legal wife. We 
bad talked about how useful her 
work for gaining my freedom could 
be abroad. We planned a series of 
activities aimed at creating a public- 
opinion campaign that would force 
Castro to free me. 

In February 1970 we were moved 
to Boniato Prison again. When the 
door to the prison opened I saw a 
great billboard saying “Cuba — First 
Free Territory in America”. That 
day saw the beginning of the 
biological and psychological experi- 
mentation. 

Almost the whole population of 
the prison watched as we were taken 
to the blackout cells. Daily beatings 
and starvation had reduced us to 
scarecrow figures. Some men could 


walk only with help. The man who 
pushed my wheelchair had to lean 
on it to stand up. 

In the morning the sun heated up 
the iron sheets across my window 
and the cell became an oven. 1 
sweated torrents and it exhausted 
me. The sweat and grease of my 
body took on a peculiar odour in 
that dosed space, like the smell of 
rotten fish. Our diet was designed to 
bring on deficiency diseases and 
metabolic disorders. Food, consist- 
ing only of carbohydrates and a 
greasy broth, was measured. 


The first cases of scurvy were 
detected. The lack of vitamins 
brought On pellagra a gain I had had 
it once before, and so was familiar 
with the dark stains across my chest 
and up my shoulders. For several 
weeks the authorities put too much 
salt in the food, so my throat 
scratched when I are. Then they 
totally eliminated the salt for a 
while, to alter the inmates' metabo- 
lism. Men who suffered from 
kidney disorders and blood pressure 
problems were devastated. 

The absence of protein brought 


on oedema. Just at the point where 
it might be fatal the patient was 
taken out and carried to the little 
hospital, and tests were performed. 
The mental deterioration of the 
patients interested the authorities 
more than the physical symptoms. 
The research lasted four or five 
days, at the end of which they 
administered massive doses of 
diuretics. Then one felt one was 
bursting, like a balloon. 

There was always someone 
among the soldiers who sympa- 
thized with our cause. Obligatory 


E very rooming as soon as I 
opened my eyes I repeated 
ihemanth, day and year. I 
kept my calendar where 
... they couldn't take it away 
from me — in my mind. Then I 
received a visit from Dr Roberto 
Puente, assistant-director of the 
hospitaL The purpose was to assess 
my psychological stale, I told him 
about the tights and my lack of 
sleep. He told me the lights would 
do me no harm at all; he himself 
always slept with the lights on. 

“Well doctor”,! said, “you know 
there’s a campaign by the revolution 
to save decuidty;' and we’re sup- 
posed to use as tittle tight as 
possible. 1 hope they don’t accuse 
you of being^foounter- 
revolutionary” 

Finally they gave die therapy and 
medical care. Castro had toU Dr 
Rodriguez Ituzbe. the Venezuelan 
senator who had been worlring on 
my behalf, that I would never leave 
Cuba in a wheelchair. They made 
Fidel's prediction come true. 

The hour of my departure ar-' 
rived. In Paris, Martha would be 
waiting for me. The procession 
headed down Rancho Boyeros Ave- 
nue toward Jose Marti International 
Airport. The plane was scheduled 
for seven in the evening. The setting 
sun dyed the sky pomegranate. My 
heart sent up of a hymn of thanks to 
God, and I prayed for my family, 
who hadn't been allowed to come to 
say goodbye, and for my friends

The do-it-yourself conservatory 


A magnificent Victorian con- 
servatory, once the palm 
house of the Earl of Stamford 
and measuring the length of 
three cricket pitches, is up for 
sale at the unlikely price of 
£25,000. 

There is one hitch, however. 
The glasshouse was disman- 
tled 60 years ago. and is being 
offered by the dealer Charles 
Edwards in what can only be 
described as kit form. 

A hundred years ago, these 
wooden frames and panes 
formed only, one of the won- 
ders at En’viHe Hall, near 
Stourbridge; Shropshire. In 
the grounds there was an 
apparent infinity of plants, a 
museum, high-soaring foun- 
tains and an aviary. 

Family tradition has it that 
Joseph Paxton, designer of the 





Glass palace: die 180ft palm house, with its 40ft domes, as it formerly stood at Envfife H«n 


Crystal Palace, was the archi- 
tect of the conservatory, 
whose domes. rise 40ft The 
original plans, however, have 
not been found. 

When it was dismantled in 
1926, its ironworic is said to 
have been sold for scrap; The 


miotic plants withered and 
died and, in 1950, the 
museum's roof and ceiling 
collapsed. A sturdier brand of 
nature reclaimed her own. 

Then last autumn Hugh 
Kennedy, a friend of die staff 
at Clifton Little Venice (a 


London shop specializing in 
garden furniture), found the 
conservatory in the stables. 
Clifton put a price of£ 125,000 
on it, ami potential buyers 
came rushing. But practical 
problems soon raised their 
beads. A consortium of Amer- 


buy”, be says, and thinks the 
Sultan of Brunei may be 


interested.

WEDNESDAY PAGE 


Anne Edwards commemorates the birth of Margaret Mitchell’s definitive Southern novel 


Fifty years 




A n event occurred on June 
30, 1936 that was to 
change the way the world 
perceived the American 
Civil War. Margaret 
Mitchell's epic novel. Gone With 
the Wind, was published, and 
Scarlett fever swept the nation, 
crossed the Atlantic and Pacific 
Oceans and then spread with epi- 
demic intensity in all directions, 
finally to encircle the globe. 

Margaret Mitchell’s maid, Bessie, 
recorded that within 24 hours of 
publication of “Miss P eggy ’s book" 
the telephone in her Atlanta apart- 
ment rang every three minutes until 
midnight and about once an hour 
after that. The doorbell chimed at 
five-minute intervals throughout 
the day, a telegram arrived every 
seven minutes and a line of at least 
ten people kept a round-the-clock 
vigil at the front and back doors 
waiting for the author to appear and 
sign their books. 

Peggy Mitchell had no desire for 
the fame that had thrust itself upon 
her with such staggering rapidity. 
She had written the novel believing 
that if published, it would sell no 
more than 5,000 copies. Profession- 
alism, not naivete, had led to her be 
so conservative. Gone With the 
Wind, had not been written by a 
retiring housewife, an amateur with 
time on her hands. Mitchell had for 
yeas been one oflhe top reporters— 
and a hardskmned one at that — on 
The Atlantic Journal and Constitu- 
tion, the most powerful newspaper 
in the South, at the same time as 
Ersltine Caldwell (the author of 
Tobacco Road} and the great sports 
writer Grantland Rice tod been on 
the staff 

“The Book" (as she would even- 
tually refer to it) had been written as 
an exercise, a therapy, after injuring 
a leg in an car accident tod forced 
her to remain at home for lengthy 
periods over a number of years. The 
day she graduated to crutches, her 
husband, John Marsh, came home 
from work with a stack of typing 
paper and insisted she start workon 
a book to occupy .heroine. 

' "My God, " she later confessed to 
thinking. “Now I've gor to write a - 
novel and what is- it 'going jdbe 
about?” 

The South and the Civil War. of 
course. Those were her areas of 
natural expertise. The harrowing 


days of the Civil War and how 
Atlanta and the folks there had 
suffered and survived had been 
drilled into her as a child. None of 
the happenings of the War or the 
Reconstruction was discussed dur- 
ing her childhood as having oc- 
curred forty years earlier, or even as 
particularly remarkable events; they 
were just part of her family's lives. 

So much for background. The 
story and the characters were next. 
Most first novels tend to be 
autobiographical, and Peggy's book 
would be no exception. Pe ggy had 
always thought of herself as ajemme 
fatale. And indeed she was a natural 
flirt. Her career in a business that 
was primarily a man's world tod 
given a hard edge to her sense of 
humour and a touch of the risque to 
her conversation. She possessed a 
rebellious streak and was proud of 
it. 

Although Peggy was a curious 
mixture of emancipated woman 
and Southern belle, she liked to 
think of herself as “a product of the 
Jazz Age, one of those short-haired, 
hard-boiled young women who

Southern fire: Clark Gable and 
Vivien Leigh in the film version 

preachers said would go to hell or be 
hanged before they were thirty”. 
With three years to go when she 
began TheBook, hell looked doubt- 
ful now that she. had -settled into a 
second marriage to finicky, mother- 
ing, conservative John Marsh, the 
only person except her father and 
brother who knew her “terrible 
secret” — the scandalous truth about 


her first marriage to Berrien 
Kinnard “Red" Upshaw, whom she 
had loved passionately but who had 
raped and beaten her so severely 
that she had spent a month in 
hospital. 

There had also been her affection 
for whisky and her rather wild life 
during her own roaring twenties, 
none of which the men in her family 
ever allowed her to live down. Nor 
would the social families of Atlanta, 
who tod 'excluded her from the 
Junior League and turned a frigid 
shoulder to her. And there was Her 
first love, the charming effete (some 
said homosexual) Clifford Henry, 
who was killed during World War I 
and she claimed they were engaged. 

The morning after her husband 
John Marsh tod given her the 
literary ultimatum to “write a 
book”, Peggy pulled on a pair of 
baggy overalls, plunjed on her green 
eyeshade, piled some cushions for 
her leg beneath a spindly sewing 
table with her typewriter on it, and 
began The Book. Its story would 
involved four major characters, two 
men and two women — one of the 
men would be a romantic dreamer 
like Clifford Henry, and the other a 
charming bounder like Red 
Upshaw. Of the women, one would 
be the essense of noble Southern 
womanhood, and the other, well, a 
fiery woman, a combination of her 
grandmother and herself “wrtfr-a 
strong dash of hussy tossed in” 

She began on the last chapter of 
The Book because she always wrote 
her newspaper stories by beginning 
at the end; from the final denoue- 
ment came the real thrust of the 
story. The first words she typed out 
were: “She tod never understood 


either of the men she loved and so 
she lost them both.” Peggy did not 
known it then, but with those 
words, she unalterably changed the 
course of her life. And she began a 
long journey of many years and 
thousands of pages of writing that 
would finally make it difficult for 
her to separate reality from fiction. 

With the publication of The Book 
and the iTmn«iiatp notoriety, P eggy 
panicked. There was more Peggy in 
Scarlett O'Hara than she cared for 
people to know. Worse, and more 
threatening: there was more Red in 
Rhett than was safe to expose. She 
tod seen Red Upshaw only once 
since he tod raped her. He had left 
her and gone back to his family’s 
home in Asheville, North Carolina. 
Marrying John tod made — what 
she considered — a decent woman of 
her. Now, her secret would be 
revealed. 

O n a Monday morning in 
July, only a week after 
The Book's publication, 
Peggy received a tele- 
phone call from Red 
Upshaw. “After reading your book I 
figure you still love me,” Upshaw 
said. 

“Why would you think that?" she 
asked. 

“Because Rhett Butler is obvious- 
ly modelled after me” he replied. - 
-- She denied it and asked him_ what 
he wanted. He promised to tell her 
someday in person and theh hung 
up. She feared he would sue her for 
libeL Rhett Butler was at times a 
reprehensible character and she had 
too cleverly left incriminating evi- 
dence that pointed to Upshaw as 
inspiration. She tod included two 


undeniable elites — RKB (for Red, 
Kinnard and Berrien) on Rhett’s 
handkerchief and Rhett’s expulsion 
from West Point, a fact taken 
directly from Red’s life. 

She believed a lawsuit with Red 
would be a scandal — and she also 
was terrified that he would appear at 
her apartment Less than an hour 
after Red's call, Peggy had Bessie 
pack a small bag and with an air of 
melodrama to her exit from Atlanta 
that rivaled Scarlett's, she got into 
her car and headed for the moun- 
tains — escaping, as she wrote to 
dose friends, “the hell of feme” 

She holed up for several days in a 
motel in Gainesville, Georgia, and 
then, after hearing from John that 
she had been invited to stay with 
writer Edwin Gran berry and his 
wife (total strangere) in Blowing 
Rock, North Carolina, she drove 
home, remaining just long enough 
to make arrangements to go to the 
Granberrys. She was sure lied 
Upshaw would never suspect her of 
going, without John, to a place 
where everyone was a stranger to 
her. 

Red Upshaw never did sue Peggy; 
nor was she to ever see him again. 
The interest she maintained in his 
whereabouts until his untimdy and 
shocking death (a suicide leap from 
a hotel . window in Galveston, 
Texas) indicates that Peggy, like 
Scarlett, never really stopped loving 
the men she lost

disaster - and fee first, 
ticketless open day at SfeeweQ 
— fee atmosphere was so 
relaxed as to be positively' 
soporific. 

Yon left yom bags behind, 
or had them searched, and fee 
microwave raffle ruse made 
sure feat fee authorities got

later discovered that the num- 
ber of tickets di d not tally,

bat otherwise, it might just as

ple factory. 

I was a child hi Suffolk 
when they were btriWing fee 
SizeweU power station; a teen- 
ager when, 20 years ago, fee 
first neutrons began to m- 
make matter in the giant 
reactors on fee beach. The 
region took it pretty calmly on 
the whole; people were a good 
deal angrier about fee defacing 


pylons which carried fee pow- 
er inland. 

Now, I live up fee coast, 
even closer to it The long 
public Inquiry on fee proposal 
to build a pressurized water 
reactor (FWR) at SizeweD B 
has stirred up con t rov e rsy, but 
even so the widespread atti- 
tude to familiar old SizeweU A 
- It opened in 1967 — has been 
one of tolerance. It is the devil 
we know, and it has never - as 
fer as we are aware — given 
any trouble. The whole con- 
cept of trouble, indeed, was 
pretty hazy; until recent 
alarms caused a rethink, the 
official local authority evacua- 
tion plans for a disaster gave 
fee assembly point as Lriston 
sports hall — all of two miles 
from the twin reactors.

Chernobyl has changed the

killed or condemned thou- 
sands, and poisoned the land 
for centuries. On fee morning 
of the SizeweU open day, fee 
papers carried fee news about

nated from a nuclear power 
station on fee other side of 
Europe. So it seemed irresist- 
ible to take up fee advertised 
invitation to visit one a mere 
four miles from home. 

As I came to the bamming

raise anxiety; alert representa-

“SizeweU — Twinned wife

demonstration, although fee 
Stop SizeweU B Association 
turned up later wife pungently 
wonted leaflets. 

Several hundred people 
were queuing. Children 
abounded (this was the first 
relaxation of the age limit of 
14 and there was even a 
creche). Behind me, a school- 
boy and his father concentrat- 
ed on filling in a CEGB quiz. 
“Graphite rods” said the 
man, helplessly. “Is feat the 
same as borons?” Then, more 
confidently, “Turbines. That's 
an ordinary turbine, basically, 
like a steam engine.” 

In fee gallery above the 
reactor, a child energetically 
waggled something labelled 
“Pile Cap Crane Control”. It 
was locked. A friendly chap 
called Nigel chatted to a 
family group. “You can walk 
on fee pile cap itself, today. 
Right on top of fee reactor. It's 
normally an area where we nse 
protective footwear, a working 
area, but we've cleaned it op 
for you. It's fee first time fee 
public have been Jet onto it.” 

Down on the pile cap, a 
shiny black dance flora: dotted 
wife round covers representing 
fee tops of the uranium fuel

rose from fee milling public. 
“Reactor One is ou load”, said 
a yellow sign, “producing

on the black surface. Twelve 
feet beneath os, hot and 


unimaginable things went on 
among the feel-rods. “My feet 
sort of tingle” said a woman, 
doubtfully. “Psychological” 
snapped her husband. 

Nobody seemed to be argu- 
ing or questioning anything. A 
genial atmosphere of incom- 
prehension prevailed. Nuclear 
reactors are short on moving 
parts, and when there is 
nothing to see bid control 
desks and shiny black floors, 
yon might as well stroU down- 
stairs to the turbine-house. I 
paused on the way to talk to a 
happy-looking control room 
supervisor wh® said what a 
treat it was to see all fee kids, 
and to a man on his way from 
the Aldeburgh Festival who 
said be hadn't understood a

Perfectly ordinary watch! 
Now, this old gas mantle — 
look — 500 again. 

“But if you wanted to throw 
away an old mantle like this, 
you wouldn't think twice. If we 
wanted to, we'd have to seal it 
up in 10m thick iroa flasks. 


That's how strict the regula- 
tions are. Stupid, isn't it?” It 
was fee most obvious hard seU 
we had come across all day 
and a flicker of rebellion ran 
through my party. “I don't 
think it’s at all stupid”, I said, 
and fee man behind chimed in 
“Do they let you wear your 
watch home, then?” 

In the welfare block, clerical 
workers had their joke, 
handing out spoof worksheets 
headed “shopping trip permit” 
and listing overspending pen- 
alties in the red box marked 
“safety". A CEGB stand dis- 
tributed paper hats and a most 
extraordlsary children’s book 
about friendly Neutrons who 
like to play wife Atoms for a 
giggle. I didn't altogether fan- 
cy the pay-off. “A happy 
unclear year! — Phew am I 
hot!” 

Alter the visit, I rang Les 
Bear, the manager of SizeweU

and friendly staff I met were 
not picked, but volunteers; and 
that yes, Chernobyl had cer- 
tainly “concentrated the 
mind” of all unclear power 
station workers all over the 
world. He welcomed the new 
UK policy of more nuclear 
openness “if it helps fee public 
to understood us”. 

And when I asked him bow-

Then it is out into the jungle

wind. 


“To start with, you might 
talk about how difficult it is 
to get clothes that fit. or what 
it's like sitting in an areoplane

For women - who out-

particularly difficult New 
York and other big cities 
have almost twice as many 
women as men — and that 
takes no account of the 
number of men who are gay. 
Smaller cities such as Boston 
have roughly equal numbers 
in the younger age range — 
but women are firmly in the 
majority after the 30s. The 
fact that men, both widowed 
and divorced, are statistically 
more likely to remarry does 
little to help.

women who had not married

“It certainly makes a 
change from cocktail 
parties”, says organizer Rick 
Thayer, a 31-year old business 
lawyer. “Everyone gets tired 
of meeting the same people 
and talking about the same 
things.” Plush country house 
hotels have latched on to 
whodunnit weekends as a 
handy way of filling their 
velvet armchairs , and cash 
tills, during the slack winter 
months. Now the idea has 
been taken up by singles 
groups. 

The Single Life, with 3.000 
members throughout New 
England, offers do-it-yourself 
hunting lodge murder dra- 
mas, orchestrated by a group 
called Foul Play. Just for the 
weekend, participants can as- 
sume the character of Claire 
Voyant, gipsy fortune teller, 
Harold American, noted au- 
thor, Widow Peake, local 
busybody — or the murderer. 

“The big appeal is to have a 
purpose Tor the weekend, 
rather than just getting away 
for the sake of getting away” 
says organizer Bob Pollock, 
an engineer and compulsive 
thriller reader.

the People Network and 
LuncbDates treat the singles 
problem as just another item 
on a busy business person's 
agenda. One firm even offers 
“lovenotes" designed on the 
same lines as a business card. 

At the top end of the 
market are organizations like 
Gentlepeople. whose mem- 
bers pay up to S950 (about 
£612) a year for “dignified” 
personal introductions to 
“highly educated, cultured 
single people”, meeting in 
each other's houses for cello 
recitals and the like. Other 
groups, like Equal Partners, 
offer matchmaking for the

Just 

interested 

The Halifax Building Society is 
now asking all mortgage ap- 
plicants to state their racial origin, 
and I -gather that some of their 
competitors may follow suit. It 
makes one bound to wonder 
whether applicants' chances may 
be affected by their race and/or 
colour, and indeed whether such 
personal data could fell into 
mischievous hands. The Building 
Societies Association assures roe 
that none of this information is to 
be used for lending purposes; on 
the contrary, the aim is to dem- 
onstrate that the societies do not 
discriminate. Ethnic monitoring, 
says the Halifax, helps it provide a 
better overall service. It further 
says that collated data is given 
only under special circumstances 
to “bona fide government org- 
anizations like the Commission 
for Racial Equality". 

Deflated 

Yet another brave group of tour- 
ists has just safely completed a 
visit to radioactive, terror-ridden 
Britain: the National Society of 
Colonial Dames of America. 
However. Mrs James Clifton 
Wheal Jnr. leader of the contin- 
gent of 1 05 ladies who can all trace 
their ancestry back to the colonial 
period, has been very careful 
about publicity. When I asked 
about their visit she did not want 
to say anything until the group was 
safely on its way home, which was 
yesterday . The reason was that 
some members, although plainly 
redoubtable, did harbour private 
fears for their personal safety. “It's 
not that we are cowards," she 
explained/‘It's just that some idiot 
might make a little trouble, that's 
all." Her fears, it seems, were well 
founded. In an apparently in- 
discriminate attack on their coach 
in Brighton a prankster let all the 
air out of the tyres. 


Vandalized 



Oliver Tambo must regard this as 
the unacceptable face ofBritain. It 
is the glass fibre bust of Nelson 
Mandela, oh London's South 
Bank, which was vandalized at 
5 am yesterday. The right-hand 
side of Mandela's jaw was stoved 
in with a sledgehammer, soon 
after the British government’s 
official recognition of Mandela's 
organization, the ANC, by decid- 
ing to bold talks with Tambo. A 
bystander called the police, and 
three men are now awaiting 
charges at Kennington police sta- 
tion. This is the second attack 
since the bust was unveiled by 
Tambo himself in October last 
year. On that occasion, respons- 
ibility was claimed by the fer-right 
British National Party. “My heart 
sank to the bottom of my boots 
when 1 saw it," says sculptor Ian 
Wallers. “It just shows how much 
racialism there is in Britain.”

‘I hope someone will explain 
that they really are poppets' 

Over to you 

I see that Mick Thornton, a 
Coventry cricketer, scored 38 runs 
off a single over at the weekend 
This is being vaunted as a record, 
beating Gary Sobers' six sixes 
against the hapless Malcolm Nash 
of Glamorgan in 1968. Thornton's 
trumping of that feat was made 
possible by a no-bail off which he 
scored two. However, the Guinn- 
ess Book of Records, never one to 
be outdone on such matters, 
suggests ihai the real honours 
should go to one H. Morely of 
Australia, who once scored an 
astounding 62 runs in an eight-ball 
over supplemented by four no- 
balls. According to Wisden, poor 
old Nash gains further unwanted 
distinction by being bit for 34 
(646666) by F.C. Hayes of Lan- 
cashire at Swansea in 1977. I 
wonder what comparable statistics 
have been thrown up at vil lage

As the White House takes its toughest stand yet, Tom Bethell talks 
to the man masterminding the new anti-Sandinista campaign 



The contras' target: Sandimsta mBftxunea on guard m Managua. President Reagan, warning of a new Cuba 
on the US doorstep, wants them to have huge new aid for arms and supplies. Elfio tt Abrams is optimistic, 
though not confident, that Congress win start to see rtiht g* the Reagan way 


Elliott Abrams, the Assistant Sec- 
retary of State for Inter-American 
Affairs, is not the customary 
Republican appointee to a State 
Department job. That figure is 
usually a Wall Street lawyer of 
rock-ribbed Republican family 
who regards government service 
as an opportunity to broaden his 
curriculum vitae, travel abroad 
with an obsequious entourage and 
attend diplomatic receptions 

Devoid of philosophy and 
glancingly acquainted with the 
history of East-West diplomacy, 
this diplomatic apprentice will 
readily take direction from For- 
eign Service officers armed with 
their own agenda of prejudices. He 
will negotiate with communists as 
guilelessly as he would with the 
legal department of the Chase 
Manhattan Bank. And after a 
couple of years he will return to 
the serious business of making 
money in Manhattan. 

Abrams, however, though be 
lias a law degree, is a different kind 
of political animal in almost all 
other respects. He is one of an 
influential group of Americans, 
mostly Jewish, mostly intellec- 
tuals, who grew to political ma- 
turity as Democrats but found by 
1972 that the Democratic Party 
had shifted to the left and was no 
longer interested in their advice or 
policies. Abrams and his allies, 
who had stayed in the same place 

— loyal as they see it, to the 
Truman tradition of liberal inter- 
ventionism in foreign policy 
which, significantly. Reagan ap- 
pealed to in yesterday's televised 
speech— found themselves de- 
nounced as “neoconservatives". 

And it is true that this new breed 

— veterans of ideological straggles 
with the left from their Democrat 
party days — takes a sharper, view 
of the importance of ideotogy as a. 
force in international affairs than 
right-wing Republicans of tire old 
school who, in columnist George 
Will's phrase, “love commerce 
more than they hate comm- 
unism." In particular neoconserv- 
atives favour US support for 
indigenous anti-communist guerr- 
illas, such as Jonas Savimbi's 
Unita in Angola and the Contras 
in Nicaragua, who are rebelling 
against Soviet-imposed or sup- 
ported regimes in the' Third 
World. 

Thirty-eight years old, Abrams 
is, so to speak, the leading young 
neoconservative, sometimes spo- 
ken of as a future Secretary of 
State. He has already been at the 
State Department for five and a 
half years, having been in turn 


Reagan’s 

Contra 

crusader 


assistant secretary for inter- 
national organizations, and assis- 
tant secretary for human fights. 

Now, with US aid to the 
Nicaraguan Contras currently 
dividing Washington, Abrams, 
whose State Department respons- 
ibilities indude Nicaragua, is a key 
man in a key position. Today the 
House of Representatives is once 
again expected to vote on a 
proposal to provide $100 million 
in mili tary and humanitarian aid 
to the Contras. On March 20 a 
similar proposal was narrowly 
defeated in the House of Repre- 
sentatives but a week later it just 
scraped through the Republican- 
controlled Senate. ■ 

This week two versions of the 
bill will be put to a vote. One, 
supported by the Democrats -and 
sure to pass, if the other fails - 
would provide h umani tarian aid 
to the Contras immediately but 
would postpone further military 
assistance until a second vote in 
October. The other bill supported 
by President Reagan, would pro- 
vide military aid immediately. 
Abrams is optimistic about the 
latter’s chances. 

Not surprisingly, Abrams re- 
sponded enthusiastically to Presi- 
dent Reagan’s televised address 
yesterday, dedaringz'The Presi- 
dent has -drawn the issue 
squarely - it is that the Soviets 
are attempting to create a new 
Cuba. They will push as far as they 
can go. So the question for the 
House to answer is: bow far will 
we let them go?" 

None the less, Washington re- 
mains split. Before the March vote 
lobbying in the balls of Congress 
was almost wholly hostile to the 
Contras. Political priests roamed 
the corridors of Congress with 
their flocks 'behind them. Wher- 
ever a pro-Contra congressman 
was to be found, a righteous 
encampment formed in his office. 
Pro-Sandinista phone calls 
flooded the switchboard. By con- 
trast there was no “grass roots” 
lobbying for the bilL . 


Faraway communism remains 
for many a potent faith, especially 
for those who have lost an earlier 
faith. Contented Americans can- 
not match the zeal of those who 
dream of New Managua Man. 

Why, then, is Abrams optimis- 
tic — though not, be adds quickly, 
“confident — the vote will be 
dose."? 

“In Match," he said, “moderate 
Democrats wanted a 90-day delay. 
We have had one. Has the 
■ Sandinistas’ behaviour improved? 
No, they have invaded Honduras 
and have driven thousands more 
MiskitO Indians from their homes 
Far from negotiating seriously, 
they have intensified their re- 
pression, as we 

predicted/’However, the 
Sandinistas may have tipped the 
House vote in their favour by their 
positive response to the latest 
peace plan drawn up by the so- 
called Contadora group of Central 
American nations, even though it 
has since been repudiated by 
Honduras, El Salvador and Costa 
Rica. For this President Reagaa's 
divided administration has been 
.partly responsible Last month 
. .Philip Habib, his special envoy — 

• who puts great trust in' signed 
promises — went begging for a • 
treaty and promised, .in a fetter.to 

- a congressman, an end to Contra 

- aid “from the date of signature" 

That Habib's letter was sent out 
from the Slate Department in such 
a form was “a goof”, someone in 
Abrams' office told me. It has . 
since been amended, repealing ifty 
US promises until a Contadora 
agreement is “implemented". 
Since this would entail an end to 
press censorship and unambigu- 
ous moves towards democracy in 
Nicaragna, the Sandinistas are not 
expected to sign. Abrams won that 
in-house battle. 

Many Europeans attach little 
importance to Central America, I 
told him. Why worry so much 
about impoverished jungle repub- 
lics? “Nicaragua itself is hot foe 
problem," he said. “The threat is

Lawson’s public pay trap 


Despite its exhortations to reduce 
the level of pay increases, the 
government is setting the worst 
possible example. This year, rises 
in the public sector are likely to be 
higher than in private industry. 

Inflation's sharp decline to 3 par 
cent (with every prospect that it 
will go lower) and high unemploy- 
ment have not prevented pressure 
in the public sector for large rises. 

It is the old problem. The pay of 
public employees is held down for 
a number of years until the gap, 
relative to the private sector, 
becomes too much to bear. When 
this coincides with the run-up to a 
general election, problems arise. 
The government, projecting a 
more caring image towards public 
services, clearly wants to avoid 
strikes by hospital and council 
workers this winter like those that 
helped bring down the Callaghan 
government in 1979. 

The difficulty is that higher pay 
means less money available for 
actual services.The pay bill for 
central and local government this 
year is £45 billion, just under a 
third of the £139 billion public 
spending total. Every 1 per cent on 
central and local government pay 
costs £450 million, enough to 
build and equip about 27 me- 
dium-sized hospitals. 

In the current debate over 
public spending versus tax cuts, a 
public sector pay rise of just over 2 
per cent is equivalent, in Ex- 
chequer terms, to a penny off 
basic-rate income tax. 

John MacGregor, Chief Sec- 
retary to the Treasury, maintains 
that the latest settlement of civil 
servants' pay, which is directly in 
the Treasury's control was mod- 
erate. However, the award was a 6 
per cent rise plus some special 
payments, compared with the 
increase last year of 4.9 per cent oh 
the civil service pay bill. 

MacGregor is less sanguine 
about public sector pay increases 
on which the Treasury’s influence 
is indirect, and is very concerned 
indeed about the impending 
settlement for local authority 
manual workers. Last September 


David Smith shows how attempts to buy 
off the unions could boomerang 


they won rises of between 6.7 and 
12 per cent with an average of 
around 8 per cent, winch is 
generally credited with ratcheting 
up the level of public sector 
increases. 

Last month the local authorities 
were on the verge of striking a deal 
with the manual workers for more 
than 6 percent until persuaded by 
the government to pnt it off until 
lower inflation, falling mortgage 
rates and the Budget tax cuts made 
themselves felt and could in- 
fluence the outcome. 

The government’s message to 
the local authorities is that one 
man’s pay increase means another 
man's rate rise. In other words, 
local authorities will not get the 
cash from central government to 
finance excessive awards. 

In the government's approach 
to pay awards in the public sector, 
there is an element of putting off 
the evil day. In the case of the 


recent pay review awards to 
doctors, nurses, senior civil ser- 
vants and the armed forces, the 
government delayed implementa- 
tion from April 1 to July 1. 

The increases were recom- 
mended to be 6.5 per cent for top 
civil servants and judges, 7.5 per 
cent for the armed forces, 7.6 per 
cent for doctors and dentists and 
7.8 per cent for nurses. The delay 
effectively cut them by a quarter. 
And in the case of top civil, 
servants and judges, the recom- 
mended rise was itself scaled bade 
to 4 per cent,- giving an effective 
increase of 3 per cent 

These awards underline the 
government's problem. The rises 
were delayed and in two cases 
scaled down, and although an 
extra £60 million had to be found 
out of reserves for the health 
awards, the impression left was 
of penny-pinching. The awards

will not prevent a campaign -for 
extra pay for. nurses. 

In assessing the government's 
record, it may well be that the 
teachers’ dispute of 1985/86 was a . 
watershed m a way that the 
miners' strike of 1 984/85 was not. 

Pay settlements for nationalized 
industries, with one or two excep- 
tions, have tended to be at or 
below die average in private 
manufacturing. British Rail the 
National Bus Company and air- 
port workers have settled for 5 per 
cent Workers in the power and 
water supply industries have 
achieved a little over 6 per cent 
but there is no particular problem 
on pay in the state industries. 

According to Esmond Lindop of 
Industrial Relations Services, a 
consultancy that monitors pay 
settlements, a distinction is to be 
drawn between workers in 
nationalized industry and those in 
central and local government For 
the latter, settle m e nt s are running 
ahead of the private! sector. 

The Confederation of British 
Industry estimates that in the first 
three months of this year pay 
settlements in private manufac- 
turing averaged 6.25 per cent, and 
in the public sector 6.5 per cent 

Nigel Richardson of stock- 
broker Laing & Cnuckshank, one 
of a number of City economists 
keenly watching this year’s pay 
round, says that while an upsurge 
in public sector pay on the scale of 
the late 1970s is unlikely, there are 
dear signs of an upward trend at a 
time when there are hints of lower 
settlements in the private sector. 

. The big disappointment for the 
Chancellor has been the failure of 
pay increases to come down in line 
with- felling inflation. The public 
sector seems particularly immune, 
relying heavily on comparability 
and differentials. 

The government could easily 
fail to- achieve either tax cuts or 
improved public services as a 
result ofbuying peace in the public 
sector. If the electorate decides 
that such a course is a coprout, 
nobody should be too surprised.

EEC exercise

A lot -of tubbish is befog tatted 
about the Single European Act 
The anti-EEC lobby bas been 
trying to present it as a giant step 
towards a European super-state. 

This argument is stale and second- 
’hand, heard to Kttle effect at ute 
time of the British referendum on 
EEC membership more than 10 
years ago. 

The act, agreed by aB member 
state governments ar the end of 

last year, including oiff own, is a , v money ana sup-

the world. I would ask Europeans 
to consider the implications if this 
region became unstable and we 
had to worry about our southern 
border. Our focus would shift 
away from Europe. As one 
congressman put it, if our Rapid 
Deployment Force has to be along 
the Rio Grande, then our attitude 
to Nato win necessarily change." 

Not that European criticism is 
likely to be a major influence on 
today's Hoase vote. Abrams 
points out that European criticism 
of the US raid on Libya has 
reduced both congressional and 
popular sensitivity to other criti- 
cisms from America's Nato allies. 
“If the Europeans could be that 
wrong about Libya, many people 
felt, perhaps they could be -wrong 
about other foreign policy matters 
as weD." 

Indeed, neoconservative com- 
mentator Irving Kristol responded 
to European criticism of the Libya 
raid by arguing that the US should 
renegotiate the Nato treaty. Neo- 
conservatives are divided on the 
issue of backing away from Nato, 
but - their, enthusiasm for it. is 

w aning . 

Asked about this, Abrams said 
he didn't agree with Kristol on 
Nato. But, he added: “If Ameri- 
cans come to the conclusion that 
Europeans do not want our de- 
fence, or worse, want it but don't 
want to give us anything in 
exchange; and simultaneously our 
problems in Central America are 
growing; and the Soviet role there 
is growing, then more of our 
resources are going to be moved to 
places nearer home. I say that not 
as a threat but as a sad warning of 
something that may be around the 
corner.” 

As for the “liberal inter- 
nationalist" vision of the world 
which has dominated western 
diplomacy - since the Second 
World War, Abrams said the idea 
that all. people in the world have 
“certain inalienable rights" is 
doing well democracy is spread- 
ing and the entire US foreign 
policy establishment is concerned 
about human rights everywhere. 
“But the belief in an international 
community living according to 
international law is not so much 
dying as killing itself One exam- 
ple of this is the failure of the 
United Nations as an idea." 

He noted, finally, that in the 
Carter Administration the idea of 
national interest, that the country 
had to protect itself seemed 
anachronistic

With the UK taking over the 
presidency of the Council of 
Ministers in. a few days time, the 
British government's role is now 
crucial in the process of making 
the Community efficient, creative 
and, above all, accountable to the 
people of EuropeJThe Council 
(comprising government min- 
isters of all member states) has 
been mairing a virtue out of 
agreeing not to agree and of 
deciding not to decide. 

The act makes min or but essen- 
tial logical rhangp* to the 1 Treaty of 
Rome: the references to the “Euro- 
pean Assembly" are changed to 
read “European Parliament" (is it 
this that -infuriates the anti- 
Marketeers?), ordinary members 
of the public will be able to bring 
cases direct to the European Court 
of Justice, and proposals which 
contribute to the establishment of 
a free internal market for goods 
and services in Europe would be 
subject to majority voting in the 
Council rather than continue to be 
clogged by the unanimity prin- 
ciple, known as the “Luxembourg 
Compromise". 

Ordinary voters have never had 
much democratic control over the 
EEC and not just over the EEC 
The sheer volume and complexity 
of UK and EEC legislation now- 
adays means that more and more 
political decisions are being taken 
by dvil servants or ministerial 
aides, and ever fewer by 6ur 
eketed representatives, whether at 
Westminster or in the European 
Parliament. In Council meetings, 
it is not unusual for civil servants 
reading from prepared briefs to 
outnumber ministers. 

MEPs do not have much politi- 
cal power that is certain. It is not 
properly realized that the Euro- 
pean Parliament is denied the 
chance of exercising real budget- 
ary control over the surplus- 
creating common . agricultural 
policy, or indeed over any effec- 
tive measures to combat frauds 
and irregularities - in the. EEC 
budget The Council tberefbrehas 


giammesm science and the sew 
technologies. 

The Single Act if ratified by all 
governments by the end of . the 
year, win certainly herald a trans- 
fer of sovereignly. Not a transfer 
from the national to the Commu- 
nity legislative structure, but a 
transfe r from government and 

Commission dvfl serv ants to th e 
democratically elected represent- 
atives of the people. The Europe an 
Parliament is sml a long way front 
being able to exercise its m a n d ate 
over the majority of the Commu- 
nity budget, but this snail exten- 
sion of influence in regard to the 
internal market Is good news for 
those who care about effective 
democratic control of our institu- 
tions, and bad news for the 
hardened professional civil ser- 
vant who has long been used to 
usurping this function. That is the 
teal transfer of sovereignty inher- 
ent in the Single AcL 

We in Britain must learn to 
reaEze that the political scene bas 
changed enormously in the last 20 
years. The quasi-govomnent that 
has grown up in Brussels must be 
controlled by onr democratically 
elected representatives. If the 
European Parliament does not 
soon achieve a greater measure of 
control over this “government", 
then we will only have ourselves 
to blame, if a European dictatorial 
super-state is created. 

Such a creation would presum- 
ably be made behind dosed doors, 
in secrecy, doubtless on the basis 
of 12 identical government briefs, 
and without a restraining trace of 
the parliamentary democracy that 
is the quintessential hallmark of 
British political traditions. 

The Singe Act, therefore, is a 
tiny step, grudgingly granted by 
the “super-mmistos” towards 
giving mane power to the people

Now that England are out erf the 
World Cup, perhaps we can 
devote all our energy to that 
wedding. Which wedding? Oh, 
(hat wedding. Yet let’s do that - 
at least we know that England has 
provided both finalists; if it's a 
nice day, and a good crowd turns 
out at Westminster Abbey, there's 
no reason why it shouldn’t turn 
out to be a triumph for England. 

So to mark the approach of this 
momentous occasion. Moreover 
will be printing a daily diary of 
some of the more exciting dungs 
that are happening round the 
world as this vital fixture draws 
near — this event ' which is 
planned as a glittering ceremony 
and a small private marriage at the 
same time, and which will draw 
people from all over the world to 
catch a glimpse of the royal couple 
and put some money into Britain's' 
tourist industry. 

Fact: Mrs Wentworth of Belgravia 
has sold ten seats at her window for 
£25 each — although her house is 
nowhere near the wedding route! If 
there is any complaint, she prom- 
ises to donate all the money to the 
tourist industry. 

The furthest flung couple hop- 
ing to attend the. wedding are Mr 
and Mrs Mashamoto of Japan, 
who are simple workers in an 
electronics factory, which they 
own. He intends to wear a plain 
blue, classically cut pinstripe suit 
and she will be wearing a tra- 
ditional Japanese wedding guest's * 
dress with a train fifteen feet long,- . 
which looks sensational but may 
cause some trouble in the plan* on 
the way over. 

“If that is so.” admits Mash- 
amoto, “we may well stay in Japan 
and watch it on TV. But don't 
worry; we will send the money to 
the British tourist industry by 
post." 

Biggest surprise at the wedding? 
Undoubtedly the little treat that 
Prince Andrew's navy colleagues 
are planning for him. Unbeknown 
to the Falkfands hero, his fellow 
pilots are planning to man a flig ht 
often helicopters which will arrive 
at Westminster just after the 
service has started, fly in through 
the main door and form a sensa- 
tional flight pattern up the main 
aisle, prior to dipping in salute to 

their colleague at the altar - 
“It's quite unofficial," beams 
Lieutenant Commander “Nutty" 
Slack; “but it should be sensa- 
tional. We’ve been through all the 
role books and it nowhere specifi- 
cally says you can’t fly inside 
Westminster Abbey.” 

The royal bridesmaids, mean- 
while, are in training at an 
England camp somewhere in the 
country. Team manager Betty 
Robson says she is very happy 


with the way things are coming on, 
and that 12-year-old train-bearer 
. Lady Letitia Wardrobe could be a 
sensational discovery on the left- 
hand side. 

“Let’s just say that the mood of 
the squad is very happy, Briony. 
Whoever gets jacked for England 
on the day wifl walk till they drop. 
And Lady Poppy Mandragora’s 
okl knee injury is not playing up at 
all Tm glad to say. iVe never seen 
morale so high." . 

Meanwhile, deep in the country, 
a noble grey bead is bent low over 
a sheet of paper. There is a frown 
on the head and on the sheet of pa- 
• per there are many markings, but 
they have afl been crossed oql It is 
none other than Ted Hughes, the 
only flying Poet Laureate. Can he 
be having trouble with his VAT? 

“No,” admits nature freak Ted 
Hughes. “As a m a tt e r of fact, Tm

was all comug quite well — a few 
nice stanzas dipping in salute — 
but now I have hit a problem.

has become something of . an 
obsession for me."

MR FOWLER’S LITTLE MUDDLE 


It is hard not to sympathise 
with a Government whose 
reforming struggles are im- 
peded by the unpredictable 
sentiment of the House of 
Lords. But this Government 
has not planned for reform 
with the clarity and sense of 
purpose that might have de- 
fended it from their Lordships' 1 
erratic depredations. 

There is only one way to 
tackle reform in the late 1980s, 
and that is oblige both the 
Treasury and the Department 
of Health and Social Security 
to see income taxation, 
employment tax (national 
insurance) and benefits as 
different parts of one single 
financial relationship with the 
state. This joint treatment 
would lead logically to the 
universal application of cer- 
tain principles (such as equal 
treatment of the sexes). 

Ministers may well feel it is 
bad luck to be running the 
system during a time when the 
extension of benefits to mar- 
ried women should be seen as 
a matter of duty, not generos- 
ity; it is, after all, hardly more 
than a decade since a Labour 
Government introduced a 
discriminatory care allowance, 
received with more gratitude 
than yesterday's expensive 
extension. But that is the 
background of social policy 
today. 

The natural development of 
an integrated tax and social 
security system would also 
oblige government to confront 
contradictions. Instead, the 
Prime Minister has preferred 
to preserve them, clinging to 
an outmoded distinction be- 
tween tax and national insur- 
ance on the one hand, and 
national insurance benefits 


and other “non-contributory" 
ones on the other. 

This has drastically im- 
peded proper reform. Mr Nor- 
man Fowler's restructuring of 
social security took place with- 
out much real Treasury 
involvement — but it was 
inevitably drawn into the field 
of taxation (by, for example, 
the proposal to pay family 
credit through the father's pay 
packet). This has fallen foul of 
public opinion, partly because 
it never formed part of that 
fusion of benefits and tax 
which would have made the 
political costs bearable. 

It was not, of course, Mr 
Fowler's fault that Mrs 
Thatcher's Government did 
not embark on serious social 
security reform until into its 
second term. Indeed, in 
proposing as much as he did in 
so short a time, Mr Fow'Ier 
certainly outstripped general 
expectations. But the under- 
lying resistance to change was 
illustrated by the effort made 
in the Lords to preserve even 
the free school meal. The 
Government's concession of a 
cash payment to mothers to 
replace it demonstrates that 
Ministers have not managed to 
sell the principle of a single 
system of family income sup- 
port. 

This is, perhaps, not surpris- 
ing when its sales technique is 
reviewed. Mr Fowler has at 
least produced a single plan; 
but its outline has been blurred 
by the implications of un- 
related tax proposals. Social 
security reform has had to 
carry the burden of Conser- 
vative discontent with the 
rating system, in the shape of a 
requirement that everyone, 
however dependent on bene- 


fits, should feel the pain of rate 
increases — clearly a political 
stop-gap. 

The Government cannot 
meekly accept all of the 
amendments blithely imposed 
by the House of Lords; but its 
defence would carry greater 
conviction if it could display 
the momentum of co- 
ordinated reform. 

For the Treasury, Mr Nigel 
Lawson does his best to simu- 
late momentum by disgorging 
a continuous stream of tax 
ideas. These display imagina- 
tion, and a readiness to em- 
brace change, that have served 
to enliven a couple of Budgets. 
But their execution has been 
less happy. A number of those 
launched fully-fledged have 
had their wings clipped by 
Parliament; those presented in 
the egg are proving difficult to 
hatch. Mr Lawson's excellent 
proposal for the taxation of 
married couples has fallen foul 
of a distressing number of 
women's lobbies, not least 
because it does not dovetail 
convincingly with Mr Fowler’s 
plans. 

Not since his launch of a 
comprehensive reform of 
corporation tax has Mr 
Lawson scored a convincing 
success as a taxation radical. It 
is not his fault that the 
Government has trapped itself 
in a bog of confusion over the 
rating system; most of the 
blame for that can be laid at 
the door of Number 10. It is, 
however, at least partly the 
lack of input from the Trea- 
sury side that has made social 
security reform a ragged design 
to begin with — one now being 
tom apart by the House of 
Lords with dangerous facility. 


THE WRONG INITIATIVE 


Whitehall and Brussels are in 
danger of fumbling the South 
Africa issue yet again. Hot 
potato as it is, it would be 
better handled by one pair of 
hands than by twelve -or 
even, as in this case, by three. 

Governments at this week's 
summit in The Hague will be 
confronted with a proposal 
that Europe sends a troika of 
foreign ministers to Pretoria in 
yet another attempt to inter- 
vene. This is the kind of idea 
which sounds better than it is 
— and is designed to answer a 
number of questions for the 
Community but not the one 
that matters. 

Under the proposal. Sir 
Geoffrey Howe, in the early 
days of Britain's presidency of 
the European Council, would 
lead a delegation of three 
foreign ministers to South 
Africa, the others being those 
of Holland (past president of 
the Council) and Belgium 
which succeeds Britain at the 
end of the year. It would thus 
reflect the European pre- 
occupation with doing every- 
thing in threes to preserve 
continuity and enable more 
far-sighted planning. 

That is doubtless a modest 
virtue. It has other virtues too. 
It would irrefutably represent 
Europe, whose importance to 
South Africa is considerable. 


Britain, one of Europe's bigger 
powers, would be supported by 
two of its smaller ones whose 
approach to the issue is less 
constrained by national in- 
terests. Europe would be mak- 
ing its voice heard once more 
on the most pressing foreign 
issue of the moment and 
would be doing so from a 
position of apparent strength. 

But would it succeed? In the 
first place, the three would 
have to make compromises of 
their own to reach an agreed 
position. In the second place, 
they would once more be 
confronting President P W 
Botha with the very kind of 
united/disunited front that he 
resents and exploits. One thing 
which has become painfully 
dear in recent weeks is that the 
Pretoria government is far less 
susceptible to international 
pressures than most uitlanders 
like to suppose. This would 
not be the first European 
troika to go to South Africa. 
But a mission last year was not 
conspicuous for its success. 

The one thing a joint Euro- 
pean approach might achieve 
.is - delay. If three ministers go 
it will take time to coordinate 
their views and to fix their 
mission. On their return they 
will need to compile a report 
which will contain recom- 
mendations. which will have 


to be considered by a commit- 
tee of the EEC then by all the 
foreign ministers, and finally 
by the heads of government 

themselves This process 

would cany Britain past the 
special Commonwealth con- 
ference in August — by which 
time governments may hope, 
in their Micawberish way, that 
something else might have 
turned up. But to view the 
initiative in these negative 
terms would be politically 
irresponsible. 

Why not let Sir Geoffrey go 
on his own? There are prec- 
edents for solo flights to 
trouble-spots by presidential 
foreign ministers. Mr Van den 
Brock of Holland went to 
Tunis recently to talk to the 
Arab League, without — it 
must be admitted — achieving 
very much. But there are 
natural links which bind Brit- 
ain to South Africa — and 
compelling reasons why this 
country should wish to find a 
solution. The Foreign Sec- 
retary is also well suited to a 
task which calls for sober 
pragmatism rather than the 
high moral posturing which it 
usually attracts. 

It is the future of South 
Africa rather than that of 
Europe which should concern 
governments now. 


VIETNAM’S BITTER ISOLATION 


The recent government re- 
shuffle in Vietnam, in which 
no fewer than eight ministers 
and a member of the ruling 
Politburo lost their jobs, is the 
latest indication of the des- 
perate straits in which that 
country' now finds itself. More 
than seven years after moving 
its forces into Cambodia. Viet- 
nam is now feeling the full 
effects of the international 
isolation it has brought upon 
itself. 

Politically, it has few friends 
besides the Soviet Union, a 
friendship of necessity if ever 
there was one. Economically, 
the country isdevastated — not 
by war any longer but by the 
policies and incompetence of 
its leaders. 

The collectivization of agri- 
culture has been attempted, 
partially abandoned and par- 
tially reintroduced. Full collec- 
tivization remains the official 
objective; so does self-suf- 
ficiency in grain. Both pros- 
pects look remote. A poor 
harvest in 1983 led a senior 
Vietnamese official to speak of 
the country being on the 
borderline of malnutrition. 

Since then the population has 
been increasing by more than 
one million a year, while grain 
production has scarcely in- 
creased. 

Vietnam remains heavily in 
debt. Last April overdrawn to 
the tune of more than six 
billion dollars (one-third of it 
owed to the West), it was 
declared ineligible for more 
funds from the IMF. Six 
months ago, in a last-ditch 


attempt to increase exports 
and curb the black market, 
Vietnam devalued its currency 
by more than 1,000 per rant 
against the US dollar. Inflation 
soared, the black market is still 
flourishing and the dollar still 
commands more than four 
times the official exchange rate 
on the black market 

The industrial sector is held 
back by lack of hard currency 
for investment and by power 
shortages. The possibility of 
joint ventures, even with 
Western countries, has been 
broached - unsuccessfully. 
Conventional export opportu- 
nities are limited by quality, 
which is poor even by Chinese 
and Soviet standards. 

Vietnam's claims on Soviet 
and Eastern bloc assistance 
seem to have been down- 
graded following the changes 
of leadership in the Soviet 
Union. Soviet economic help 
to Hanoi has levelled out. 
Military aid has actually de- 
creased. And although the 
Soviet Union and Vietnam 
signed a new credit agreement 
last year, Vietnam had to 
promise to make its heavily 
subsidized trade with the East- 
ern bloc more like two-way 
traffic. 

In recent months the 
combination of domestic eco- 
nomic difficulties and pressure 
from foreign creditors 
(whether the Soviet Union, the 
West or the IMF) has forced 
Vietnam to shift its policy 
priorities — orthelookofihem 
at least "-on two fronts. At 
home, it has drafted plans for 


even more economic changes 
— including, possibly tolerat- 
ing a degree of private enter- 
prise. Abroad, it has stepped 
up attempts to gain acceptance 
for the regime, at almost any 
cost. 

Since the beginning of the 
year it has exhibited a dis- 
tinctly more compliant atti- 
tude to the Americans in their 
search for compatriots missing 
in action. It has also made a 
series of propositions to China 
which culminated two months 
ago in a call, redolent with 
desperation, for talks on what- 
ever terms Oiina would name. 

The one concession Viet- 
nam has so far refused to 
make, however, is the one that 
might end its international 
isolation: a withdrawal of its 
troops from Cambodia. Earlier 
this year, in an apparent 
attempt to make its overtures 
to China more palatable, Viet- 
nam compared its occupation 
of Cambodia to the Taiwan 
question in Chinese-US rela- 
tions as aD issue which could 
be set aside if both countries 
saw mutual advantage in so 

doing. 

This is a specious compari- 
son. Taiwan is not an occupied 
country. Nor is it governed in 
a way which runs counter to 
the will of its people. Cam- 
bodia is both of these. The feet 
that Vietnam still fails to 
realize this distinction means 
that its isolation, and hence its 
economic difficulties, will con- 
tinue for some time to come, 
whatever the composition of 
its government 


Fault in tennis 
drugs decision? 

From Sir Humphrey Atkins. MP 
for Spehhome (Conservative) 

Sir. So the Association of Tennis 
Professionals will nun a blind eye 
to any of its members playing at 
Wimbledon who are found to 
have taken cocaine or heroin 
(report. June 24). Perhaps this is 
not surprising as. presumably, the 
association's main concern is to 
increase the financial rewards of 
its members. 

But what of ihe All England 
Club? Are they, too, prepared to 
condone, by inaction, the setting 
of such an appalling example to 
the vulnerable young, in man y of 
whose eyes the stars of the game 
are idols?

For this relief . . . 

From Dr H. Baderman 
Sir, There are unexpected benefi- 
ciaries of our present intense 
interest in the World Cup. Never 
have the evenings and the nights 
been so quiet in our usually busy 
accident and emergency depart- 
ment It took u$ a little while to 
make the connection! 

It is good to know that our 
patients still have a proper sense 
of priorities between these mo- 
mentous events on the world stage 
and their own pains and personal 
ailments. 

We are now looking forward to 
the last day of Wimbledon and to

Birkbeck’s future 

From the Vice-Chancellor of Lon- 
don University 

Sir, 1 very much share Lord 
Fletcher's keen concern (June 19) 
about the future of Birkbeck 
College. I can assure him that the 
University of London (and not 
least the chairman of its Court. 
Lord Scarman) has given the 
college the strongest support in its 
protests to the University Grams 
Committee about the arbitrary 
and substantia] reduction in the 
moneys which the committee 
allocated to the university for the 
college for 1986-87. 

Some of Lord Fletcher’s state- 
ments are wrong, however. It was 
the university which in 1967 
devised the formula for calculat- 
ing the full-time equivalent for 
Birkbeck's part-time undergrad- 
uates at SO per cent subsequently 
used by the university Court to 
work out the college’s basic grant 
needs. This reflects the four-year 
course which Birkbeck students 
normally follow. 

In trying to apply their new 
formula allocation system the 
UGC (not the university Court) 
seem to have failed to appreciate 
the very different circumstances of 
Birkbeck, whose students are 
•virtually all part-time, with the 
result that the college could lose 
up to 30 per cent (well over £2 
million) from its grants by 1989. 

The university Court has not yet 
decided oo its grant allocations to 
London colleges; it meets on July 
2 to do so. With an additional 1.5 
per cent increase in the 
university’s grant for 1986-87 as 
compared with the rise in univer- 
sity costs of at least 5 per cent (and 
the Government has set the pay 
‘‘target” for the public sector 
unions this year by its offer of a 6 
per cent increase for Civil Ser- 
vants) how can the university 
protect Birkbeck without seriously 
damaging other colleges? The 
UGC must rectify their own error. 
Yours faithfully, 

FLOWERS, Vice-Chancellor,

Geaning up 

From Mr Frank Atkinson 
Sir, In the name of tidiness Mrs 
Bird (letter, June 20) must not be 
allowed to get away with the 
destruction of some of Cornwall’s 
heritage! 

Certainly old mineshafts should 
be filled and made safe; equally 
certainly work should be sought 
fora redundant mining workforce. 

But to destroy “derelict stone 
buildings and tall chimneys” 
would be not only to destroy 
important features of the eigh- 
teenth and nineteenth-century 
heritage of Cornwall, but would 
surely damage another growing 
industry: namely tourism. 
Preserving industrial archaeology 
may not be everyone's first choice 
for improving the landscape, but it 
can have the merits of historical 
fact, of romanticism, and yes — 
even nostalgia, as well as straight- 
forward commerce in terms of a 
growing service industry. 

Or perhaps we should also be 
knocking down abbeys and cas- 
tles; after all they are old and 
disused and clutter some incom- 
parable landscapes? 

One day our successors will be 
fighting the threatened loss of the 
last line of electricity pylons 
marching across some open moor- 
land. Until then, let us not destroy 
an important aspect of Cornwall's 
proud history. 

Yours faithfully.

Unused talent in the Church 


From Mrs Elizabeth Smith 
Sir. The Church of England is 
urgently in need of all the talent, 
spiritual and physical energy it can 
command in order to properly 
undertake the task of maintaining 
the Christian faith in this country. 
By refusing to ordain women as 
priests the Church of England is 
denying itself and the people the 
Church senes of a very consid- 
erable source of these assets. 

Statements made by some 
clergy and members of Parliament 
indicate a dear contempt for the 
spiritual and intellectual abilities 
of women, a contempt that must 
be challenged because it sends a 
message to the populace as a 
whole stating that it is legitimate 
to deny women status. It is a 
message that conveys the idea that 
women are inferior and as such 
may be targets for neglect or even 
abuse. 

The Church of England accepts 
a woman as head of the Church in 
the person of the Queen. That 
same Church has not as yet 
accepted women into its ranks as 
priests. This is a curious 
contradiction that I suspect has 
more to do with political expedi- 
ency and hypocrisy than with 
biblical orthodoxy. 

Yours faithfullv, 

ELIZABETH SMITH,

June 19. 

From Mr Rex Collings 
Sir, In a week or so the protago- 
nists of the ordination and 
consecration of women will stand 
triumphant and victorious on the 
ruins of what was once the 
national Church. It is perhaps, 
therefore, opportune to ask what 
will then happen to the van- 
quished. 

My guess is that a small body of 
dissenters, with songs of protest 
on their lips, will march off, their 
tattered banners bravely flying, 
their drums and fifes sounding, to 
establish and fortify pockets of 
resistance, islands of impeccable 
orthodoxy, cut off from the na- 
tion; a number of others will go 
into permanent exile, joining 
other communions; but by far the 
larger number, of which I am one. 
will, I believe, take neither of these 
courses; we shall just stop going to 
church. 

Ignored and despised by the 
feminists, we will drop away. Our 
legacy will be even emptier pews, 
even smaller collections. 

Of his Grace I would ask one 
question as he stands on the ruins; 
“Had Zimri peace who slew his 
master?” 

Yours faithfully. 

REX COLLINGS,

June 22. 

From the Rev Professor S. G. Hall 
Sir, It is astonishing that one of the 
learning and sagacity of the 
Bishop of Chichester (June 21) 
should give, as examples of 
theological matters of first order. 


“the Incarnation of Christ as a 
man and God's choice of the lime 
and cultural setting of the 
Incarnation". These topics have 
never, I believe, been the subject 
of specific scripture, major 
theological exposition, or conciliar 
debate, but have apparently been 
jeonjured up by twenlieih-century 
males anxious to prop up exisitng 
barriers against women. 

By contrast God's incarnation 
as human (homo) has been repeat- 
edly discussed and affirmed as his 
male sex (wr) has not been; taken 
seriously the latter would exclude 
female mind and flesh from 
redemption as well as ordination. 

If this is the best their oppo- 
nents can do — and coming from 
such a source I suspect it is — 
lovers of Catholic mith can wel- 
come God's gift, in women bishops 
and priests with no further hesita- 
tion. To ask them to wait for an 
“ecumenical agreement" of male 
bishops, who cannot even find 
ways to recognize each others’ 
orders, is to make theology as well 
as episcopacy look ridiculous. 
Yours faithfully,

From Mr M. D. Oakley 
Sir, Following the publication of 
Professor McClean’s report 
concerning the options that the 
Church of England might follow in 
drafting legislation for the ordina- 
tion of women to be permitted, I 
write as one of the members of 
that working party who produced 
the report and whose earnest wish 
at the time of the preparation of 
the report was to “preserve the 
peace and unity of the Church of 
England". 

I am doubtful that this worthy 
aim can be achieved by the 
safeguards provided and indeed I 
question whether a one-clause 
measure allowing women to be 
admitted to the priesthood would 
not be just as appropriate and be 
no less schismatic; such a measure 
would need to include the finan- 
cial provision outlined in the 
present report. 

I do not see that the Church of 
England is in any more a special 
position than the Church of 
Canada , Australia or New Zea- 
land. certainly in the eyes of God 
or its people. The options now 
presented will clearly be unaccept- 
able to some on both sides and the 
consequences of their im- 
plementation present many 
complications. 

A one-clause measure is an 
option I believe the Church should 
also consider, since if we are going 
to see a split in the Church of 
England, which indeed I do not 
believe will happen, it might as 
well be a simple rather than a 
complicated one. 

Yours faithfully.

Change in S Africa 

From Sir Henry McDowell 
Sir, The experience of Rhodesia 
may be helpful in bringing the 
revolution in South Africa to a 
more satisfactory conclusion than 
that likely to flow from violent 
victory or violent stalemate. 

In Rhodesia her Majesty's Gov- 
ernment moved in to fill the 
leadership vacuum; secured the 
consent — however grudging — of 
the conflicting parties to a pro- 
gramme of change; and superin- 
tended the launch of the 
programme, which is now being 
carried out with notable success by 
the people of Zimbabwe. 

Another constructive initiative 
by HMG might prove to be of 
similarly pivotal value in the case 
of South Africa. The Government 
can still call on much wisdom and 
experience in devising policies, 
and the outline of institutions and 
measures for implementing them, 
in developing societies and in 
societies divided by political 
cleavage: should they not now 
consider following up the work of 
the EPG (Eminent Persons 
Group), and set about designing a 

Capital warships 

From Vice-Admiral Sir James 
Jungius 

Sir. May I be permitted a footnote 
to the correspondence concerning 
the vulnerability of surface war- 
ships off the Falkland Islands. 

The salient feature of what 
happened was that an air force was 
virtually destroyed as a viable 
force. This was accomplished by 
surface warships and by aircraft 
operating from surface warships. 
These naval forces were assisied 
by shore batteries, which had been 
landed by surface ships. 

In this process we lost a few 
ships: war has long been a 
painfully dangerous business. 
S’ours faithfully.

Milkman’s hazards 

From Captain C. A. Douds. Rj\' 
Sir. My milkman tells me that one 
of the hazards of his job is getting 
in and out of his float on the 
offside to attend to some 500 
households on his round. 

In the USA, I remember, the 
mailman has a vehicle with right- 
hand drive so that he can dis- 
embark on the near side straight 
on to the sidewalk. Would left- 
hand drive on their floats not 
make life easier (and safer) for our 
milkmen?

programme of change in South 
.Africa? 

The programme should, as 
fairly and reasonably as possible, 
lake into account the apprehen- 
sions (and reasonable claims) of 
whites, as well 25 the aspirations 
(and reasonable claims) of blacks: 
and this Government should se- 
cure the endorsement and broad 
support of the Commonwealth 
and the EEC for their proposals. 

The plan must also include an 
undertaking that its progress will 
be monitored: and that HMG. the 
Commonwealth, and the EEC will 
guarantee that progress. (In outlin- 
ing the guarantees there could well 
be a constructive, and effective, 
role for the threat, a promise of 
sanctions). 

The scheme should aim at being 
one which a responsible, benevo- 
lent and impartial government of 
South Africa, uninhibited by 
dogma or prejudice or revenge, 
might themselves conceive as the 
way forward. 

Yours truly.

Pupil-governors 

From Councillor Gordon Hook 
Sir. The proposals contained in 
the Education Act to abolish the 
office of pupil-governor in local 
authority schools is retrograde. 

In recent years we have seen our 
student body laking an active 
interest in the democratically 
contested elections for the po- 
sition of student governor and this 
exercise is in itself of benefit 
(albeit strictly limited) to their 
political education and awareness. 

.As a result of pupil participation 
on governing bodies I have found 
a greater interest in decisions 
taken by those bodies and, one 
may suggest, a consequent in- 
crease in awareness of problems 
by pupils. 

In sixth-form college a large 
numberof students already appear 
on electoral rolls and many vote in 
local and national elections. It 
does seem quite extraordinary, 
therefore, that this opportunity to 
encourage participation in the 
organisation and management of 
their own environment is appar- 
ently 10 be denied to our student 
body. 

The existing system works and 
should be extended, not abolished. 
It is to be sincerely hoped that the 
Government will reconsider these 
proposals, which, if implemented, 
will only increase the level of 
cynicism amongst this peer group. 
Yours faithfully.

JUNE 25 1919 

The German High Seat Flc*t 
under the commend of Rear- 
Admiral Lun Reuter surrendered 
for interment to Admira' Beatty 
off the Firth of Forth on 
November 21 ISIS. It comprised 
11 battleships, file battle cruisers, 
eight l-.ght cruisers and 50 
destroyers. Of the larger vessels 
only one, the battleship Baden, 
remained afloat. By 1982 all but 
seven had been salvaged. 




THE SCUTTLING 
AT SCAPA 

The sinking of the German Fleet 
■was described to a representative of 
The Times last night by Mr. B. F. 
Cribble, the marine artist, who 
returned to London yesterday from 
Scapa Flow, where he had been 
with the British Fleet making 
drawings of the interned vessels. 
By a stroke of good fortune Mr. 
Cribble witnessed the scuttling of 
the German Fleet ... On Saturday 
morning the British Fleet proceed- 
ed to sea. and Mr. Cribble decided 
to go on a cruise round the German 
vessels on board the trawler 
Socbosin, a captured German ves- 
sel, in order to complete his work. 
He was then fortunate ir. witness- 
ing what he describes as a most 
wonderful sight, and one which he 
would not have missed for worlds. 

The Sochosin was under the 
command of Sub-Lieutenant 
Leeth, said Mr. Gribble, and we 
were simply cruising round and as 
it happened I was only just in time 
to get the drawings I wanted. 
About 11.45 I noticed German 
soldiers on board the Friedrich der 
Grasse throwing baggage into 
boats which were already alongside 
the vessel. I remarked to the 
lieutenant, “Do you allow them to 
go for joy rows?” He replied, “No, 
hut by jove it looks as if they were. 
Then after a moment's hesitation 
the lieutenant exclaimed, “My 
word. I have got it. I believe they 
are scuttling their ships and are 
abandoning them.” 

•RETURN TO YOUR SHIPS." 
We made straight for the nearest 
vessel, which happened to be the 
Frankfurt, and the lieutenant or- 
dered his men to get their cutlasses 
and rifles ready- He then shouied 
an order to the Germans, who were 
now in their boats, to return to 
their ships at once. The German 
sailors apparently had thrown 
their oars away and they shouted 
back “We have no oars." A British 
sailor then shouted to them “Here 
you are. you swine, here you are,” 
and he threw a number of oars into 
the water. There were two boats 
approaching us and the German 
officers were extremely impudent. 
Standing on the bows of their boats 
they shouied “Can’t you take us on 
board into safety?" Lieutenant 
Leeth replied. “No, return to your 
ships at once: if you do not I will 
fire on you." . . . 

It then became necessary to open 
fire, and the Germans were seen to 
wave white flags. One German 
Officer shouted, "You have killed 
four of my men. and we have no 
arms. I want to look after the men.” 
One officer shouted to them, "You 
look after them by getting them 
back to the ships." 

By this time the Friedrich der 
Grasse had listed right over to port, 
and in a few minutes went down. 
Her crew had succeeded in getting 
round into the open, and we 
managed to get three boats in tow. 
Meanwhile, signals were being sent 
up to our battleships to return, and 
messages were signalled to the 
coastguards requesting them to 
marconi to the Fleet. It took about 
two hours, however, before the first 
of the destroyers arrived. The 
Germans in their boats were very 
daring, and endeavoured to come 
alongside our vessel. One of the 
crew, however, kept them off by 
threatening them with a revolver. 
CHEERS FROM THE GERMANS. 

By this time the B rummer, a 
cruiser of the Emden class, had 
begun to turn over and sink, and 
the first destroyer of the British 
Fleet arrived just in time to see her 
go down. The German crews, who 
were out in the open sea, cheered as 
they saw their ships go down. One 
of the German battle cruisers, I 
think it was the Hindenburg, 
hoisted the German ensign, and I 
noted that all the German vessels 
had been flying two code flags at 
the peak. The upper flag was a 
white ball on a blue pennant, and 
the lower was a yellow and blue 
pennant. 1 had noticed on the 
previous day that the same signals 
were flying. They were Down by the 
Emden, and apparently answered 
by all the German vessels — 

We then observed that the 
Emden was in trouble, and H.M.S. 
Shakespeare, one of our destroyers, 
ran alongside her to endeavour to 
take her in tow. We returned to the 
Ram illies. and transferred to her a 
number of the wounded Germans 
whom we had removed from the 
German boats. 

ALONGSIDE THE EMDEN. 

I noted that Admiral von 
Reuter's flagship was flying his 
flag, which is a black cross resem- 
bling a Maltese Cross on a white 
ground, with two black balls. When 
we got alongside the Emden I 
peeped into her forecabin, and I 
noticed it was gaily decorated with 
flags and bunting, and there was a 
distinct odour of tobacco and 
spirits. Evidently the Germans had 
indulged in an orgy the night 
before! It appears that the whole 
thing was carefully arranged and 
timed to a minute . . . 


Knowing one’s place 

From Mr F. A. Sefron Coitom 
Sir, Mr Joseph Xavier's letter 
(June 23) reminded me of ihe 
following experience. 

At a recent meeting on the 
subject of GCSE music I heard ihe 
word “ethnic” bandied around in 
what seemed to me a puzzling 
context. Naively. I asked for 
clarification. “Steel bands”, came 
the answer.

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JUNE 25 1986 


QUEEN ELIZABETH II 
CONFERENCE CENTRE 


tFogjs) 


A SPECIAL REPORT 


Westminster’s 
other great 
talking shop 


There is nothing new in the 
idea of any Government hold- 
ing meetings. Indeed, it seems 
that the frequency with which 
government . departments 
need to confer is increasing. 

These conferences may in- 
volve several departments or 
representatives of other gov- 
ernments, but whatever their 
nature, any administration 
needs a venue where such 
conferences can be held. 

By the early 1970s, it was 
becoming apparent that the 
facilities available to White- 
hall and Westminster had 
significant limitations. A new 
building was needed. The 
result of that decision, the 
Queen Elizabeth II Confer- 
ence Centre, is now a reality. 

The original brief called for 
a building with modern facili- 
ties, appropriate to a visiting 
head of state, three conference 
rooms with full security and 
all the support services neces- 
sary for a government 
conference. 

The brief was handed to the 
architects, Powell Moya and 
Partners, in 1975. By April 
1982, Bovis Construction had 
been appointed management 
contractors and building work 
had begun. Just over two years 
later, the whole project was 
reviewed. 

Having been conceived as a 
Government-sponsored 
building it was intended that it 
would be for use only by the 
Government. Inevitably, this 
means that the considerable 
costs of running the building 
would have to be met from . 
government funds. As costs 
rose, this became an unaccept- 
able burden so ways to reduce 
the operating deficit had to be 
found. 

Such a development is far 
from unusual. There have 
been many other buildings 
designed to be funded from 
taxes or rates where a means 
has had to be found to reduce 
the annual deficit. The Gov- 
ernment appears to have come 
to the same conclusion as 


The Queen Elizabeth 
II Conference Centre — 
purpose-built yet 
versatile - was opened in 
Westminster yesterday 
by the Queen 


many others and recognized 
that there is a demand for 

conference space that can be 
used by companies and 
associations. 

As a result, a firm of 
consultants was called in to 
assess the likelihood of letting 
the building for use by outside 
organizations. At the same 
time, they were asked to 
identify changes that would 
need to be made and estimate 
what revenue would be gained 
from such lettings. 

In adopting the recommen- 
dations in that report, the 
Government accepted that 
changes had to be made to the 
building. Government confer- 
ences lend to be very different 
in character from those staged 
by companies and associa- 
tions. These organizations are 
likely to use audio-visual aids, 
whereas politicians and civil 
servants seem content to rely 
entirely on the spoken word. 

Similarly, exhibitions axe 
often an integral pan of 
association and corporate 
meetings yet are almost entire- 
ly absent from government 
conferences. These were the 
main areas in which changes 
had to be made, although 
there were others, such as the 
size of the area to be made 
available for catering. . 

In general terms, the differ- 
ing requirements of the com- 
mercial market seem to have 
been accommodated, al- 
though some aspects of the 
design still show the original 
brief 

In the main meeting room, 
tbe Churchill Auditorium, it is 
not possible for a speaker to 
leave the stage unseen by the 
audience. The only way to 



Capital idea: Built 
only for meetings 


•S* 

leave the stage is by walking fe 
through the audftorium.Chief • 

executives of companies often ^ (,> ' 

prefer to leave unseen while 
their conference is still going 
on. 

The stage itself is small by 
modern standards, but can be 
expanded fairly easily. Even 
so, this means that the room is 
more suitable for simple busi- 
ness or association meetings 
rather than for full-blown 
product launches. 

The same is true of tbe other 
meeting rooms that will be 
available for hire. The Whittle 
and Fleming rooms on tbe 
third floor are big and have 
booths for simultaneous inter- 
pretation. AB of these rooms 
are comfortable and their 
character should help meet- 
ings organizers, provided they 
can be totally blacked-out 

Overall, the architects ap- 
pear to have been able to 
accommodate tbe new de- 
mands with a reasonable de- 
gree of success. 

_ Born out of the need for government conference facilities, the 

Ken Clayton completed centre wiD cater for outside organizations too 


The Queen Elizabeth II Con- 
ference Centre is entering a 
very competitive market The 
number of buildings within 
Europe being offered for hire 
by conference organizers in- 
creases every year. Even so, 
the centre is unusual. 

The majority of buildings 

and rooms that are available 

for meetings are also used for buildings is reserved for ma- 
other purposes. Most _of tbe jor, government-hosted meet- 


the same way as a company or 
association. If the room is 
already booked, the Govern- 
ment ■ will have to go 
elsewhere. 

There is one pan of the 
building that will never be 
available to outside organiza- 
tions. Tbe Mountbatten Suite 
on the top floor of the 


latest so-called conference 
centres, have been designed as 
multi-purpose venues. 

Hotel function rooms are 
also used fora wide variety of 
events. The Queen Elizabeth 
centre is being sold for meet- 
ings and nothing else. 

The advantage of a dedicat- 
ed centre for the conference 
organizer is that the staff 
should have a better under- 
standing of his or her needs. 
There should also be less risk 
of a conference being ' dis- 
turbed by other functions. 

But there is one question 
that will undoubtedly concern 
meeting organizers. Because 
the centre is run by the 
Government, there could be a 
risk of conflict of interest. Will 
a conference be cancelled 
because of a government 
meeting? 

Those responsible for sell- 
ing the centre are adamant this 
will never happen. Govern- 
ment departments will have to 
book the facilities in exactly 


mgs. The casual visitor is not 
even allowed to see this room, 
since it is the most secure in 
the centre. 

For the immediate future, 
however, the sales potential 
for. the centre looks good, 
given some reservations. The 
most significant of these is the 
feet that there are windows in 
each of the conference rooms. 
The design team judged win- 
dowless conference rooms to 
be depressing and so they 
decided to give each room a 
view. 

From the point of view of 
an organizer of a conference 
that uses audio visual aids, 
that aim is acceptable only if 
the windows can be complete- 
ly blacked out 

The Churchill Auditorium, 
which is the main conference 
room, has a slightly sloping 
floor and can accommodate 
up to 750 people, theatre style.

Rooms on the third level, both 


How security keeps out the coffee-break spies 


Security is 

important to tbe organizers of a wide 
variety of conferences. Companies 
need to know Hat confidential infor- 
mation revealed in a meeting will not 
be seen by outsiders and many 
organizations want tbe reassurance of 
knowing that their speakers and 
guests wfl] be safe at a conference. 

Tbe Queen Elizabeth D Conference 
Centre is well-equipped to provide 
reassurance on both of these aspects. 

Many facets of the design of the 
bunding will never be publicly re- 
vealed, but those responsible for 
selling it are confident that it is one of 
the safest buildings in Europe. 

The ordinary defe gatB attending a 
conference enters by the main en- 
trance and is immediately confronted 
by the security screen. This involves 
fonr body scanners of tbe type now 
familiar in airports and an X-ray 
scanner for brief cases. 


The screen should mean that the 
only people inside the building. are 
those entitled to be there, tints 
avoiding the situation of a company 
finding that its business meeting has 
beat attended by its competitors, 
masquerading as genuine delegates. 

Many companies have experienced 
this problem, particularly in braidings 
where the coffee area is accessible to 
outsiders. A co mp etitor mingles with 
the delegates during a coffee break 
and simply goes into die conference 
room with them. 

Bat organizers still face the prob- 
lem of a dealer, for example, being 
accompanied by a competitor. This 
may sound unlikely but it does 
happen and the only defence an 
organizer has is to demand positive 
identification from each delegate. 

From the point of view of an 
organizer who wants' to be snre that 
the information provided in a confer- 


ence remains confidential, however, 
the greatest advantage of the centre is 
that the public is excluded. 

Most conference venues today have 
public areas and in many instances, a 
determined infiltrator can pass from 
there to a position where everything 
said in the conference can be beard. 

Within tbe Queen Elizabeth ce n tre, 
however, this should not be possible, 
first because no-one should be able to 
enter the bmMing without the proper 
authorization. Beyond that each of 
tbe rooms has a limited number of 
entrances and these should be easily 
controllable if necessary. 

VIP guests or speakers have a- 
separate enhance at the side of the 
building or can be brought from the 
underground car park into the VIP 
lounge area. There can be many 
reasons that a speaker wifl prefer to 
avoid entering the braiding through 
the same doors as the audience. 


Often, this will involve a long 
journey through kitchens and back 
corridors. 

Within the conference rooms, si- 
multaneous interpretation services 
are provided by a system that is 
permanently wired into the building. 
By avoiding radio-operated systems, 
the risk of the programme being 
picked up outside the building is 
eliminated. 

With total security provided on a 
day-to-day basis, it seems likely that 
the centre will be attractive to a 
variety of companies. Computer and 
pharmaceutical companies seem to be 
particularly keen on secure confer- 
ence venues. 

It could be that the security of the 
building, which was demanded for 
Government meetings, will also pro- 
vide the major selling point for the 
centre. 

KC 


have flat floors. The 
has a stated capacity of 750 
people while the Whittle can 
accommodate 450. both the- 
atre style. 

Organizers of association 
meetings will appreciate the 
considerable number of small- 
er rooms. They are also likely 
to approve of the remarkable 
facilities for simultaneous in- 
terpretation in alj three main 
meeting rooms. 

Question-and-answer ses- 
sions can be handled easily 
because of the sound system 
that was designed specifically 
for the centre. This involves a 
computer which registers the 
name of anyone wishing to 
speak from the floor.A chair- 
man can have a monitor and 
can us it to select the next 
person to speak. 

Microphones can be 
plugged into permanent sock- 
ets around all of the rooms. 
Alternatively, desks which 
contain wiring for micro- 
phones can be fitted in the 
rooms, although this will ob- 
viously reduce the capacities. 

Much of the technology is 
yet to be proved under full 
conference conditions, but it 
does appear to have been well 
designed for the average busi- 
ness or association meeting. 

The same is true of the 
catering. Pro Leith’s company 
has been brought in to provide 
catering in the Queen Eliza- 
beth II Centre. At a conference 
for 1 50 people, the standard of 
the food was excellent, even 
though the organizer had cho- 
sen the cheapest menu. 

Pro Leith herself is confi- 
dent that this quality can be 
maintained even when cater- 
ing has to be provided for 700, 
although the organizer will 
have to accept her advice on 
the menu. 

The centre should be a 
success. The facilities, will be 
equal to or better than those in 
most other conference 
centres. Its position in central 
London will make it attractive 
to many organizers. Bookings 
are already claimed to be 
“very healthy". 

All of which is good news 
for the capital, which needs 
even more good conference 
facilities.

They will, however, turn 
their backs bn the main 
facilities, a high-security meet- 
ing place for EEC and other 
government ministers and 
prestige private conferences, 
which is its primary purpose. 

The building completes a 
new Sanctuary Square, which 
almost works as a concept, 
despite the scythe of Victoria 
JftStreet running into Broad 
Sanctuary and Parliament 
Square, which prevents its use 
as a significant urban space. 
The centre fills a gap left 
vacant for SO years since 
Westminister Hospital moved 
to two large blocks in 
Horsefeny Road.

traditional English reticence,

the stalwart Methodist Central

raised to a commanding 
height [the cornice line of its 
neighbours] and projects out 
into the theatre of action. It is 
playful and gains in lightness 
by appearing to be carried by 
elegant suspension rods from 
the main structure. It is a 
pavillion from which to ob- 
serve the fluctuating game of 
pageantry”. 

Powell Moya and Partners 
were the designers, headed by 
Sir Philip Powell. The archi- 
tects kept their nerve while 
many contemporaries have, 
been losing thetrs to hi-tech or 
post-modernist fashions. , 

The practice was formed 
when it won the international 
competition to design Chur- 
chill Gardens, die 33-acre 
housing estate in Pimlico, 
immediately after the Second 
World War. 

Delegates, conference ad- 
ministrators and the press will 
be accommodated in a series 
of generous, flowing spaces, 
perhaps unequalled since the 
competition of the Royal Fes- 
tival Hall on the South Bank. 

Though exposed concrete is 
used extensively inside, fin- 
ished in tooled granite aggre- 
gate, milk white and flecked 
with silver and grey, it is 
softened everywhere by select- 
ed views out — for example, of 
the Abbey and Square from 
the Benjamin Britten lounge, 


and of the Big Ben clock tower 
from the restaurant. 

The standard of detailing, 
particularly the joinery, is 
impressively high and a neu- 
tral background of walls, ceil- 
ings and carpeted floors gives 
prominence to special lighting 
effects and a substantial dis- 
play of contemporary works of 
British Art and Craft.

The 800 or so rooms which 
make up the centre are centred 
on the third-floor main con-

the four main meeting places, 
equipped with simultaneous

Beneath them all in the base-

a car park. 

Security arrangements be- 
came a top priority long after 
the original designs were

judicious planning and the

the level of comfort and 
splendour rarely affordable in

Architecture Correspondent 


For Augustus Welby Pugin, 
who collaborated with Charles 
Barr}' on the rebuilding of die 
Palace of Westminster after 
its predecessor was destroyed 
by fire in 1834, architecture 
was “decorated constructed*’. 
This sentiment is not evident 
in the design of the nearby 
conference centre, whose ar- 
chitects have chosen instead to 
fill the interior with various 
examples of contemporary 
British arts and crafts. 

Many countries now have 
legislation requiring those 

ram miss io n f ug hnikUnps to 

devote one per cent of the 
construction cost to works of 
art that will delight its users. 
Art and Architecture, which is 
lobbying for such a system 
here, held a conference on the 
subject at the Royal Institute 
of British Architects last 
month. 

However, ministerial and 
Treasury budget controls are 
not quite so generous as one 
might hope. But through a 
combination of conumssious 
and loans, the centre is a mini- 
art gallery in itself, with more 
than 200 works by British 
artists of the post-1945 gener- 
ation already on display or 
proposed. 

British manufacturers and 
suppliers have kitted out die 
place from top to bottom 
through a policy of positive 
discrimination exercised by 
the Crown Suppliers. 

Discussions commenced 
during the early stages of 
design. Powell Moya and 
Partners, the architects, put 
forward rations aha* and 
ideas to the Government's 
Property Services Agency, 
who invited Dr Wendy Baron, 
curator of the Government Art 
Collection (GAC), to collabo- 
rate on the venture. 

The conference centre panel 
included Alan Bowoess, direc- 
tor of the Tate Gallery, and die 
art critics John McEwen and 
John Russell Taylor, the latter 
of The Times. 

With the architects, the 
PSA project manager and Dr 
Baron, the panel selected work 
with oatside help from, among 
others, Lesley Greene of the 
Public Art Development 
Trust, Isobet Johnstone of the 
Arts Council of Great Britain 
and Tony Ford of the Crafts 
ConnriL 

“Excellence of its kind* 1 was 
the only common denominat- 


ing factor for the final 
selection. 

Pride of place has been 
given to a Paolozzi carved 
wood bas-relief on the west 
wall of the Benjamin Britten 
Lounge, prompted by mas lea! 
themes and Britten’s music in 
particular. 

Other commission work in- 
cludes a sand-blasted Royal 
Coat of Anns and royal crowns 
on the glass by the main 
entrance, by Roman Halter,

the Queen yesterday and a silk 
mosaic wall-hanging, by 
Ludenne Day, which h a n gs in

macro-gauze wall- hang ing to 
be suspended above the con- 
ference-suite entrance. 

On a lighter note, Barry 
Fantoni, The Times Diary 
cartoonist, has depicted con- 
ference delegates of many 
nationalities on a laminated 
wad-fining on the lift landing 
to the second-floor refectory. 
One hopes they will share his 
sense of humoHr. 

Furniture craftsmanship is 
well-represented by a suite of 
dining-room furniture by Da- 
vid Field, in the Abbey Room 
on the third-floor mezzanine, 
which was selected as a result 
of a design competition. Coiled 
stoneware pots, by Jennifer 
Jones, decorate foe fourth- 
floor courtyards, and a sculpt- 
ed head of Mountbatten in the 
fifth-floor delegates lounge is 
by Franta BdskL 

About 100 works have also 
been acquired, from drawings 
by Deanna Petherbridge, An- 
thony Caro and Stephen 
Fa thing, to a sculpture by 
William Pye, prints by How- 


ard Hodgkin and Victor 
Pasmore, as well as folios 
produced by the Royal College 
of Art, the Slade School and 
the Contemporary Art Society. 

The programme for loans 
has two mala objectives: to 
supplement and complement 
the purchases by providing a 
fuller range of art on view, 
including work by particular 
artists beyond the centre's arts 
budget; and to introduce a 
measure of flexibility into the 
overall scheme because many 
of the loans will be for a fixed 
period and subject to rotation 
with other work. 

Detailed discussions are 
still underway with the Tate, 
the Arts Council and the 
Henry Moore Foundation, as 
well as other public and 
private sources. The GAC is to 
lend a number of drawings, 
paintings, sculpture, prints 
and photographs. The Tate is 
also lending a study of a 
pacing Hon by Landseer for 
the main entrance foyer. 

The Crown Suppliers claim 
that the centre is a showpiece 
of British enterprise and quali- 
ty in its furniture and fittings, 
provided at a cost of just over 
£5 million. 

The venae has more than 
250,000 square feet of carpets 
and other floor coverings, 400- 
plos office “workstations" 
(they used to be called desks), 
200 wail clocks, 13,000 pieces 
of bone china tableware (ex- 
cluding the VIP dining room), 
nearly 4,000 conference 
chairs, 100 louvre blinds and 
287 pedestal ashtrays. 

The conference tabling is 
quite original. Dozens of dif- 
ferent configurations are pos- 
sible using the 594 Emits in 
seven shapes. Every piece has 
buflt-in wiring for simulta- 
neous translation — and folds 
flat for storage. They were 
made by Marriott Office Fur- 
niture in English ash with 
dark-green hide inlays. 

Anglepoise desk lamps, Da- 
vid Mellor cutlery, Dexion 
racking, Gent docks, Remploy 
laboratory benches. Royal 
Doohon tableware and Wilton 
carpets were among more than 
40 sub-contracted items. Laid 
end to end, so to speak, it took 
six days a week for 14 weeks to 
move everything in, presenting 
a massive logistical exercise. 




chances, there’s only one 
builder to choose. 


When you put up a building 
opposite Westminster Abbey it’s 
got to be good. 

And when its main purpose is 
to host large gatherings of national 
leaders and delegates, it’s got to be 
something else: 

Sophisticated, and very secure. 
So when the Property Services 
Agency appointed the 
management contractor to carry 
out the Queen Elizabeth II 
Conference Centre they were 
taking no chances: 

Bovis y 

Bovis Construction Limited * 


Bovis House, Northolt Road, 
Harrow, Middx. HA2 0EE. 


They chose Bovis. 

Today, with the centre poised 
for its very first conference, 
the achievement is there for the 
world to see - a building of 
immens e technology and quality, 
completed safely on schedule.

chances with your next building

Archaeology 


Monastery remains found 


By Norman Hammond, Archaeology Correspondent 


The remains of a monastery belonging to 
England's only indigenous order have beat 
uncovered at York. Hie church, cloister, 
residential h andin gs and cemetery have been 
ancovered beneath a modern glass factory. 


The priory belonged to the GHbertine Order, 
founded by a Lincolnshire priest, Gilbert of 
and ms founded at .the 
be ginning of file thirteenth century on a site 
justonSsMe the trails of York, beside the river. 
Most GObertine booses had both male canons 
and nmiSfbnt the York bonse was for men only. 


The Gilbertines took over die „ 

Newburgh Priory, and the excavations carried 
oat by the York Archaeological Trust have 
shown that the twelfth century church was 
lengthened eastwards, perhaps with a bell 
tower, shallow transepts and a cfaanceL 


North of the church was the doister, around 
a garth some 15 metres square with a central 
well The refectory range lay on the north side 
of the cloister and the dormitory on the east 
The builders had foand it necessary to use 
massive relieving arches in the fomidations, 
becaase these overlay the soft fiDiiig of earlier 


pits and ditches of the Anglo-Saxon period 
some three centuries before. 

Outside the refectory door were found a 
brick drain, and a much-scoured bowl off 
copper aDoy: these were apparently fur the 
ritual washing of hands before meals. In the 
dormitory range a fine bone and iron 
parchment pricker, nsed in the preparation of 
manuscripts, was found: the monastery scrip- 
torium may have been near by. 

Numerous burials wen nneaithed, especial- 
ly in the cbmch and in the cloister outside what 
appears to have been the chapter honse; the 
i rior or abbot was often buried in the chapter 
house in a medieval monastery. Some of the 
church burials were in limestone coffins, mid 
one lay in a tensed Roman coffin. Most of the 
burials, however, were in the cemetery east and 
south of the chnrch. 

Painted window gbssJn the chapter honse, 
and architectural fragments, will allow the 
trust to recoastnd the appearance of the 
G libertine monastery, but as the excavations 
draw to an end attention is already concentrat- 
ed on earlier levels, where the lost Anglian 
community of Eoiforwk, the eighth century 
precursor of York, may await discovery.

DR R. L. WATERFIELD 


Dr Reginald Lawson 
Waterfidd, an intemarionally 
known astronomer, died on 
June 10, aged 85. 

A remarkable man of great 
spirit, he contracted poliomy- 
elitis at the end of life Second 
World War which left him- a 
paraplegic for die last 41 years 
of his life. 

. He did not allow this to 
affect his work as a consultant 
Iramatoldgist at Guy’s Hospi- 
tal though there were 
interruptions. 

Al the same .time, he in- 
creased the scale of his much- 
valued astronomical work 
from his bungalow home 
where he trad his observatory 
with an dectricaDy-controlled 
large telescope. 

WaterfiekTs interest in as- 
tronomy had started at the age 
of ten when he saw tte 


saw 

daylight comet ofl 9 10. While ‘ domical Association 
still at school at Winctesterhe served his two years 
joined fl*e British Astronomi- 
cal Association. • 

Later, he attended medical 
school and went to Guy’s, 
where he became a noted 
blood specialist. 

- Meanwhile he carried out 
methodical observations, es- 


pecially of solar eclipses, and 
organized expeditions to ob- 
serve five eclipses. 

He was director of the Mars 
section of the British Astro- 
nomical Association from 
193IW 1942. 

His planetary observing 
books were a model and full of 
information, especially on 
Mars, Jupiter and Saturn. The 
Royal Astronomical Society 
awarded him the Jackson- 
Gwflt medal in 1942. 4 * 

During the war Waterfidd 
served in the medical service 
but. though struck with polio 
at the end of it, would not let 
his physical weakness prevent 
his enjoyment in life or his 
enthusiasm for astronomy, 

. «mri his wry humour res 
mamed. 

In 1954, he was elected 
president of the British Astro* 

- ‘ * 1 — and 

with 

distinction. 

He wrote two books; The 
Revolving Heavens and A 
Hundred Years of Astronomy. 
He was given the highest 
award of the British Astro* 
nomical Association, the Wal- 
ter Goodacre medal, in 1966. 


RIGHT REV E. B. HENDERSON 


Admiral Sir William Davis 
writes: ~ • 


Your perceptive obituary 
notice on “Jock” Henderson 
(June 14) will have brought 
great satisfaction to many 


He served as a Naval Chap- 
lain in HMS Mauritius during 
1943 and 1944 and took part 
in four major invasions as part 
of the attacking force: at Sicily, 
Salerno, Anzio and 
Normandy. 


What a splendid part he 


played. His influence was 
most marked. 

He was quite without fear 
and on more than one occa- 
sion I told him to take cover 
when we were receiving the 
full attention of German shore 
artillery and aircraft 

He was loved, admired and 
respected by everybody serv- 
ing in the ship, and was greatly 
missed when be left at his 
diocesan bishop's request, to 
return to his parish at Ayr. 

• He and his charming wife, d 
Helen, were universally wd- f 
corned in all posts he held.

Peter J. Schryver writes: 

As an old colleague of Sir 
Kenneth Wood I have been 
asked to point out certain 
inaccuracies in your obituary 
notice. 

There has been no structur- 
al failure of a Bison building, 
and in every case there was 
full linkage between floors and 
structural walls. 

Whilst in 1983 ibe Depart- 
ment of the Environment did 
advise local authorities to 
check Bison homes for faults, 
it was quickly followed by an 
investigation by the Building 
Research Station into all 1 
heavy panel systems. 

A very small number of 
blocks was demolished on 
account of faults which arose 
in many housing blocks at the 
time, but none was on account 
of structural weakne sses

Television 

Woolly 

animals 

The grand piano was covered 
with figurines of pet animals — 
cats, dogs, horses, chimpan- 
zees and a yellow-crested 
cockatoo. Lesley Judd, the 
presenter of Pets in Particular 
(Channel 4). earnestly en- 
quired of the sculptress which 
animal had been most difficult 
to capture in clay. “The 
cockatoo*', she replied. “She 
took me a week. Something 
fell on her crest.** 

Something falls on the crest 
of the television schedules 
once the summer solstice is 
passed. Television presents an 
endless vista of trivia, trash 
and repeals. The program- 
ming takes on the apologetic 
demenoor of Bobby Robson's 
men on their last appearance 
at the Azteca Stadium. The 
reason is partly the same in 
both cases. The most exciting 
sight in broadcasting at 
present is undoubtedly Diego 
Maradona, against whom op- 
position seems useless. 

With the World Cup, Wim- 
bledon and the eternity of 
cricket to plan around, it is no 
wonder that television compa- 
ny controllers do not care to 
waste their best programmes 
againsi such competition. Fur- 
thermore. major sporting 
events have a tendency to 
overrun, thereby displacing 
cornerstones of the schedule 
from their traditional time- 
slots. This deranges the condi- 
tioned responses of the 
audience, who become a feck- 
less, footloose and fancy-free 
mob of independent thinkers 
who finally forsake the tube 
altogether for other pastimes. 

Despite these difficulties, I 
see no reason why the plan- 
ners should abandon hope of 
success so atterly that they 
should construct a schedule in 
which Pets in Particular is the 
only new serial at peak-time 
on either ITV channel this 
week. It is an nndistinguisbed 
magazine programme devoted 
to . the care of pets, and it 
launched its new run with a 
woolly discussion on the mer- 
its of raising one's dog as a 
vegetarian. This is certainly a 
topic of minority interest, but 
it seems a poor candidate for 
Channel 4‘s time when more 
important issues are still not 
properly represented there. 

Elsewhere, the chief delight 
of last night's television was 
the American mini-series Ut- 
ile Gloria (ITV). the repeated 
saga of Gloria Vanderbilt 
beautifully directed by War is 
Hussain and acted exquisitely 
by Lucy Gutteridge. Apart 
from this glittering offering 
there was nothing to blunt 
one's gratitude for resumed 
transitu lions from Mexico 
today. 

Celia Brayfield 


Making the film Bring on the Night, which opens in London on Friday, 
caused much distress to the self-assured Sting, as he tells David Sinclair 


In pursuit of fearful excellence 


Among his other achievements, it 
tends to be overlooked that since 
I 97Q Sting has enjoyed a successful 
and varied acting career, but his 
latest film. Bring on the Night. 
which opens on Friday, features 
him in his more failiar role as 
musician and bandleader. Directed 
by Michael Apted (of Coalminer's 
Daughter and Stardust), the film 
documents a period of nine days in 
the spring of 1985 when Sting was 
rehearsing his newly-formed group 
for their first public performances 
in Paris. 

The group turned out to be a 
spectacular success, but now, wan- 
dering round the garden of his 
17th-century north London house. 
Sting recalls the misgivings he felt 
when the film was being made. “I 
was panicking. We were realty 
rehearsing, without enough lime to 
do it. and it seemed to me that the 
film-makers were recording a 
disaster taking place. I was terrifed. 
exhausted. I was past caring how I 
looked, I simply couldn't deal with 
the camera." 

It is extraordinary to hear such 
fears voiced by someone who 
appears to be the very epitome of 
calm self-assurance. As a couple of 
dogs rampage across the lawn and 
various builders, engaged in reno- 
vation work, bang and chop with 
their chisels. Sting relaxes on a 
bench. Is his outward control part 
of the act? Is Gordon Sumner 
playing a character called Sting? 

“There is a certain amount of 
role-playing. Films operate on a 
momentum of positive thinking. ! 
threw a couple of people off the set 


who were voicing my fears, mirror- 
ing my true misgivings." But he 
laughs' at lhe absurdity of that 
situation as well: “All they were 
doing was speaking the truth, but 
that kind of negative attitude is 
deadly." His philosophy is domi- 
nated more by the pursuit of 
excellence than by the desire for 
power. 

"It was never my ambition, or 
even my wildest fantasy, to become 
an actor. I fell into it by accident 
but, having got into it. I'm the sort 
of person who likes to excel at what 
I do.” His first wife, the actress 
Frances Tomelty, persuaded him 
to audition for the Ace Face in 
Franc Roddam's Quadrophenia. “I 
dragged myself down and went into 
the audition reading a Herman 
Hesse book. I spent an hour talking 
with Franc Rod dam about Hesse, 
and Newcastle, which is his home 
town as well. We didn't mention 
the film until the end when be said 
'Do you want the part?' ” 

In the same year he landed a part 
in Chris Pettit's Radio On, and has 
subsequently appeared in films 
including Brimstone and Treacle. 
Dune , The Bride and. with Meryl 
Streep and Charles Dance, the 
much-lauded Plenty. Although he 
still regards himself as an “appren- 
tice actor" he has not felt impeded 
by his lack of formal training. 

“When you've worked with peo- 
ple like Denholm Elliott, Joan 
Plowright and Meryl Streep, that is 
the best training available. It's all 
very well to go to the Central 
School of Drama, and work in 
various reps around the country. 


but that's a controlled environ- 
ment. I've learnt to act with the 
spotlight full on. and if 1 hadn't 
teen adequate I'd have been eaten 
alive by those people, because, 
much as I love them, when things 
aren’t going right they’re mon- 
sters." Worse than musicians? 

"They're very much the same. 
Actors and musicians are just as 
insecure as each other. They ail 
need love and understanding and 
affection." His approach is firmly- 
based in the tradition of English 
theatrical acting as opposed to the 
method techniques so popular with 
American film stars. "I’m more 
interested in sub-text and thorough 
rehearsal. ! don't like method 
acting. It’s such a waste of energy. 
If someone is your enemy In the 
script, he doesn't have to be your 
enemy all day." 

Apart from David Bowie, there 
are few rock stars Sting would 
nominate as convincing actors. 
"It's wrong to assume that because 
people can make fait records they 
can do anything else. Since I've 
been making hit records I've been 
asked to do outrageous things, such 
as speak at the Oxford debate. Just 
because a person can make hit 
records doesn't mean they can do 
brain surgery’ or design an 
aeroplane." 

Curiously, one of the most 
lingering images from Bring on the 
Night is the sequence where the 
birth of Sting's fourth child, Jake, is 
recorded in detail. In the middle of 
the hubbub and excitement of this 
precious moment. Sting, in his 
green medical gown, standing over 


his girlfriend Trudi Siyler. looks as 
poised and capable as any fictional 
Dr Kildare. Bui. in fairness, this is 
more to do with Sting's naturally 
commanding presence in any situa- 
tion than w;th the way the film is 
shot. 

"I chose Michael Apted to direct 
because I wanted someone who 
would look at things with a more 
jaundiced eye. and attempt to get 
behind ihe people involved. I 
wanted an honest film about 
people, not a rock 'n' roll film. 
Jake's birth happened coinciden- 
tally within the time that we were 
filming and Apted talked us into 
including it. because not to include 
an event like that would have been 
a dishonest account of those nine 
days in my life. I don't think it's a 
piece of gratuitous home-movie 
making. ! think it's a moving and 
honest moment, and I'm willing to

The authentic stuff of tragedy : Ralph Fiennes and Sarah Woodward as Romeo and Juliet 


x* 


Theatre 

Masterfully orchestrated production 


Romeo and Juliet 
Regent’s Park 

Following Michael Bogda- 
nov's Stratford production, 
here is another high-energy 
version of the play to shake up 
the idea that never was a 
tragedy more wet than this of 
Romeo and his JulieL Gone is 
the Verona street patrolled by 
rapier-happy menials. Instead. 
Declan Donnellan launches 
the show with a jolly Roman 
Catholic procession that turns 
into a Brideshead party, with 
gilded boys in blazers and 
boaters staging a comic replay 
of the opening quarrel boister- 
ously supported by a crowd 
who join in with the best- 
known lines. 

This framework is disman- 
tled once the action gets under 
way. But as the whole compa- 
ny remain on stage through- 
out. smoking or taking a turn 
on the drums until their next 


scene arrives, the play never 
has a chance of disappearing 
into the black hole of Juliet's 
tomb. And performances re- 
main highly resistant to inher- 
ited stage business and 
proverbial lines. "She 
speaks", exclaims Ralph Fien- 
nes's Romeo, as his beloved 
materializes above a hand- 
held tablecloth representing 
the balcony. The effect is pure 
burlesque, and the house duly 
caved in under their umbrel- 
las. When it comes to "parting 
is such sweet sorrow”, the line 
is so well known that they say 
it in unison as a lovers’ joke. 

As for the characters, there 
is a quietly dignified Tybalt 
(David O'Hara), a bespecta- 
cled Benvolio (Andrew Col- 
lins) who tags along laughing 
in the wrong places, and a 
Mercutio (Nicholas Wolff) of 
dearly inferior soda! origin, 
who eggs his companions 
along with a taunting grin 
under his cad's moustache. 


and works himself up into 
paroxysms of feverish inven- 
tion from which he has to 
recover in Romeo's arms. 

If that sounds perverse, 1 
can only say that its effect is to 
make the text sound brand- 
new; and that, almost without 
exception, the departures 
from stereotype are consistent 
and fully worked out If 
Mercutio is in the habit of 
undercutting Romeo's lyrical 
flights with a derisive “de- 
dah-de-dah", he also pulls 
himself up short by apologiz- 
ing for a bad joke of his own 
after receiving the death blow. 

Some performances begin 
absolutely straight and then 
lake unexpected directions: 
such as Dilys Hamlett’s 
Nurse, a wickedly mischie- 
vous old thing who resists the 
gathering tragic atmosphere; 
and Peter Whitbread's jovial 
Capulet who berates his dis- 
obedient daughter in a state of 
drunken rage and self-pity. 


Most striking of all is the 
growth of Sarah Woodward’s 
JulieL who is never more 
confidently poised and full of 
girlish giggles than when she is 
acting her preparations for the 
forced marriage, and who 
awakes in the vault with a 
shriek of terror. 

The production is master- 
fully orchestrated, with simul- 
taneous scenes, intercut over- 
laps and varieties of group 
movement between frozen 
tableaux, drilled gesture and 
outbursts of pandemonium — 
all related to different levels of 
reality. The lovers' first meet- 
ing is staged for comedy, with 
Romeo trying to work up 
courage to sit in the next chair 
in the midst of a crowded 
dance-floor. Then, as he 
nerves himself to speak, the 
room falls still and silent apart 
from an ominous drum-beat 
This is no apology for the 
tragedy: it is the thing itself. 

Irving War die 


Festival concerts 


King- s Singers 
East Church, 
Kirkwall 


This was Lhe third premiere in 
as many days at the St Magnus 
Festival: the density of new 
utterings is extreme even for 
Maxwell Davies on Orkney. 
And. if both the Violin Con- 
certo and the Postman's Over- 
ture had suggested complex 
motivations and a complex 
understanding, here on the 
tiiird occasion was Davies 
doing something he has al- 
ways done with apparent ease 
and simple perfection of 
achievement: writing for un- 
accompanied voices. 

It mattered not at all that 
the voices were those of the 
King’s Singers, whose corpo- 
rate musical personality; is so 
distant from his own (it was 
smilingly on its toes in perfor- 
mances of folk-songs and 
madrigals). While House of 
Winter lasted, the sextet were 
completely drawn into the 
musical world that was first 
visited more than a quarter- 
century ago when Davies be- 
gan writing carols, and that 
has been the place for such 
larger pieces as .-1 Solstice of 
Light and Wcsterlings. 

In style and difficulty the 
new work is closest to this lasL 


though the seconds in the 
harmony and the sense of a 
Lydian minor tonality also are 
strong links with the carol 
repertory. This is appropriate 
as the work is based on three 
carols from a collection cf 
Christmas poems by George 
Mackay Brown, witb the 
fourth poem inserted for a 
storm scene. Just as he has 
always done in setting Mackay 
Brown. Davies honours the 
texts. Much of the writing is 
Slavic and open > n texture, but 
even where there is tugging 
counterpoinL even where the 
altos are whistling and the 
bass rolling with the waves in 
the storm piece, every word 
can be heard. 

The work speaks of the deep 
community of interest be- 
tween poet and composer the 
sense of the inevitable pres- 
ence of the old mvths (Nativ- 
ity. tonality), the frankness of 
imagery and the candour in 
the simple effect (Davies's oft- 
repeated soft untings of 
"Listen", or his mesh of “sh” 
sounds for Brown’s “sift of 
ash"). Celebrating a child, the 
piece expresses something 
genuinely childlike in Davies, 
and that is perhaps the source 
of its great purity and beauty. 

The purity and beauty of 
this performance, however, 
must be credited to the King's 
Singers, who gave Davies 
surely one of the most accom- 



plished first performances he 
has received, showing that, 
once they have been mastered, 
his rhythms can sound per- 
fectly natural, his harmony 
completely compelling. 

Paul Griffiths 

BBC Singers 
Union Chapel 

Needless to say there were 
world premieres in this 
Almeida Festival concert. The 
most topical of them, in the 
light of a rather more substan- 
tial piece by the same compos- 
er that was unveiled at the 
weekend, had to be Peter 
Maxwell Davies's setting of 
ihe “Agnus Dei" for two boy 
singers, violin and cello. But 
this is not a work of great 
moment, though it is crafted, 
of course, with loving care and 
Davies's usual melodic sensi- 
tivity. It was sung with im- 
pressive professional cool by 
Adrian Osmond and James 
Bugden. 

Andrew Vores's Five A mho 
Ghost Songs were hardly of 
great stature either, though 
these aphoristic utterances for 
chorus (the excellent BBC 
Singers under Simon Joly) 
came close to achieving a 
Kurtag-like intensity of ex- 
pression. 

The American composer 
David Lang's By Fire, on the 
other hand, aimed high, com- 
bining a quotation from a CIA 
analysL who had witnessed 
the effects of a bomb explod- 
ing among a flock of albatross- 
es, with a chunk from a 
treatise called The. Art of War. 


Here an anonymous BBC 
soprano sang the analyst's 
lines with something like rap- 
ture. while her female col- 
leagues gradually migrated to 
the dull staccato of the treatise 
(sung throughout by the gen- 
tlemen) in a theatrically effec- 
tive manner. 

Two works for solo soprano 
(Sarah Leonard) and chamber 
group (the Almeida Ensemble) 
dominated the centre of the 
concert, and both shared the 
composers’ intent to condemn 
what he sees as a social evil. 
The Austrian composer Gerd 
Ruhr’s Wall Whitman for 
President, settings of three 
apposite Whitman texts com- 
posed in the wake of Reagan's 
1984 election victory, said 
what it had to say extremely 
well, with plenty of controlled 
poignancy and anger. But it 
could not measure up to 
Mark- Anthony Turn age's La- 
ment for a Hanging Man for 
sheer expressive power. This 
violent and soulful work made 
full use of the colours of 
saxophone and two bass clari- 
nets, as well as of the percus- 
sion that all six performers 
were required to play. 

Framing these were Oliver 
Knussen's Fragments from 
Chiara, another premiere, but 
of music written mostly in 
1975 and to be included, 
tntriguingly. in a larger 
project; and Hans Werner 
Henze's Orpheus Behind the 
Wire (1981-83), settings of 
Edward Bond's poetical pro- 
gramme notes for his ballet 
Orpheus. Both were perfect, 
examples of idiomatic, shim- 
mering choral writing.

There is something inherently 
and inescapably ludicrous 
about staging Bible stories, 
stemming perhaps from the 
lurking fear of sacrilege in The 
Word made flesh. Peter 
Shaffer’s revamping of the Old 
Testament — now partly recast 
by Peter Hall from the compa- 
ny that opened last December 

- knows this all too well. 

Those unacquainted with 

the two sources from which 
Mr Shaffer conflated his script 

— the Book of Samuel and 
Dan Jacobson's novel The 
Rape of Tamar — are given 
ample assistance from the 
eponymous anti-hero, who in- 
troduces the action and pro- 
vides running commentary 
throughout This is an unfor- 
tunately obtrusive and lower- 
ing device which pretends to 
do more than it does, and 
succeeds in undoing a good 
deal more. 

Combining the less attrac- 
tive aspects of lago and Uriah 
Heep, our devious MC intro- 
duces the vainglorious King 
David (John BluthaJ): his 
spoilt eldest sons, the bullish 
Amnon (Leigh Lawson) and 
the narcissistic virgin Ab- 
salom (Anthony Head): his 
witchv daughter Tamar (Wen- 
dy Morgan); and Yonadab 
himself (Patrick Stewart up- 
grading from the role of David 
in place of Alan Bates), the 
royal nephew who sets up 
Tamar's rape at the hands of 
Amnon and. subsequently. 
Amnon’s murder at the hands 
of Absalom. 

Apart from John Bury's 
sumptuous design and Mr 
Bluthal's overdone David this 
cry of woe is an outrageous 
vawn at the top of the throne 
steps), the eye is held chiefly 
by the woeful clumsiness with 
Which the key incidents are 
handled: lhe scene where Am- 
non persuades Yonadab to be 
his ambassador in an attempt 

to make peace with Absalom 
flounders between lowbrow 
comedy and psychological 
drama." while the treatment of 
Tamar’s rape- with poses plas- 
tiqucs silhouetted against the 
vast dividing curtains, brings 
to mind the prurience of 
Victorian pornography. 

This would not matter so 
much were we not invited, 
ultimately, to sec Ihe victim as 
a pioneering champion of 
women's rights.

Patricia McCarty's viola recit- 
al was an outstanding exhibi- 
tion of string-playing of the 
highest American class — ac- 
curate intonation and a mar- 
vellous strength and variety of 
tone from what can often 
sound a shadowy solo instru- 
ment. Britien's Lachrymae 
usually sounds thin, even 
insipid: the potency of Ms 
McCarty's performance was 
remarkable. Similar expertise 
and deep musicianship were 
in evidence in Rebecca 
Clarke's fine Sonata (1919) 
and Brahms's Sonata. Op 120 
No 2. both of which contained 
any amount of warm, singing 
phrasing, while the obvious 
gypsy mannerisms of Tibor 
Serly’s Rhapsody were at least 
delivered with the required 
degree of panache. Ellen 
Weckler's accompaniments 
were fluent and musical.

handling of the transitions in 
Liszt's B minor Sonata was 
often very convincing, and his 
overall view of this work and 
of Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit 
had grandeur and power if not 
the ultimate in finesse. The 
taut phrases of Copland's 
Piano Variations were firmly 
and decisively sculpted.

BMA reverses 
policy on ban 
on alcohol ads 


By lvncbo^ Tiinjmn&, Social Services Correspondent 
The British Medical Associ- drinking, then it fs the pattern 


ation yesterday reversed its 
policy demanding a total ban 
on all promotion and advertis- 
ing of alcohol calling instead 
for sensible drinking but with 
health warnings on bottles, 
cans and alcohol 
advertisements. 

In a reversal of last year’s 
decision, the 600 doctors at 
the BMA's annual meeting in 
- Scarborough declared that a 
■ total, ban bn alcohol advertis- 
ing was. impractical. Doctors 
. had warned that outright op- 
position to the drinks industry 
was likely to be counter- 
■"productive. 

. Dr Nicholas Dixon, a fam- 
ily doctor from Essex said: “If 
we continue with a policy as 
extreme as the one we have 
then the association is less 
likely to be taken seriously by 
government, who will see it as 
impractical; by the drinks 
industry, w ho will see neither 
room nor encouragement for 
compromise and progress; or 
by the general public who may 
perceive it as hypocritical. 

“We do not want to stop 
people drinking. We only 
want to encourage them to 
adopt safer and healthier 
drinking habits." He said 
advertising could play a part 
by affecting the pattern of 
people's drinking. 

. “If we believe that there is 
such a thing as moderate, 
social drinking that does not 
carry with it inevitable medi- 
cal risks or a high risk of 
decline into uncontrolled 


of people's drinking which we 
should hope to improve" 

As doctors produced statis- 
tics of the damage caused by 
alcohol with 1,000 young 
people killed a year in acci- 
dents where alcohol was a 
factor; one third of car drivers 
and a quarter of motorcyclists 
who die having alcohol levels 
over the legal limit; and 
60 per cent of crimes of vio- 
lence involving young people 
who have been drinking; some 
doctors vigorously opposed 
the change of polity. ‘ 

Dr Stuart Homer, a com- 
munity physician from Lort- 
don, said that 10 years ago a 
complete ban on smoking on 
the London Underground 
would have been seen as 
impractical 

The conference called on 
the Government to launch 
“an effective and sustained 
campaign aimed at reducing 
alcohol-related problems," 
with health warnings on 
advertising. . 

The association yesterday' 
called on the Government to 
outlaw job discrimination 
against sufferers from Aids, to 
reduce people's fears of being 
tested for the virus. ‘ 

Dr Jeremy Wright said: 
“We are already beginning to 
see discrimination against 
Aids sufferers in schools, 
places of work and elsewhere, 
even though there is no evi- 
dence that the virus can be 
transmitted by casual 
contact”

police who guard him for the 
short journey to his home, 
again heavily guarded by re- 
lays of RUC officers. 

The- irony of that situation 
was not lost on the many 
officers called to Stormont to 
end the sit-in and whose, 
language about the DUP and 
Unionist politicans in general 
is unprintable. 

One young officer said: 
“Who the hell wants to listen

Hours later Mr Nicholas 
Scott, Parliamentary Under 
Secretary of State at the NIO 
said: “As far as Mr Paisley's 
threats, implicit and explicit, I 
have; heard him say many, 
many disgraceful things in my 
life, but this is one of the most 
disgraceful I have ever heard." 

Afterwards Mr Paisley de- 
clared: “This is a war and let 
no one mince words about it

come to hand to hand fighting 
in every street in Northern 


Ireland. We are on the verge of 
civil war. It's more than the 
edge of civil war, perhaps we

The Official Unionist Party 
were not prepared to take part 
in any sit-in in Stormont and 
all but two of their members 
left the chamber on its dissolu- 
tion to the intense annoyance 
of the DUP.

Ministers to act on

Continued from page 1 numbers as bfaea p labour 


however, be attractive to the 
new service grade. 

Health authorities are ex- 
pected to welcome the deal 
which ultimately will leave 
them with fewer junior doc- 
tors changing jobs regularly. 

Doctors leaders, however, 
are insisting that the numbers 
in the new grade will have to 
be authorized by regional 
manpower committees to stop 
authorities employing huge 


numbers as cheap labour. 

The package is expected to 
include an extra £4 million 
over two years to appoint an 
extra 50 consultants a year in 
medicine and surgery; the 
offer of early or partial retire- 
ment to some consultants 
aged over 60. 

Efforts will be made to 
match the number of senior 
registrar and registrars in 
training to the number of 
consultants posts likely to 
become available 


Denis Healey’s South Afri- 
can campaign began on the 
plane from London to Lusa- 
ka. Among fellow passengers' 
was Clement Mwananshiku, 
the Zambian Foreign Minis , 
ter. Mr Mwananshiku is a 
former finance minister and 
Mr Healey approves of ex- 
finance ministers becoming 
foreign ministers. 

Mr Mwananshiku also kept 
Mr Healey's party (booked in 
economy, by the South Afri- 
can Council of Churches) 
well supplied with chain- 
pagne. 

Stirring up 
trouble 

Mr Mwananshiku’s own 
mission was to promote eco- 
nomic development — in 
Zimbabwe as well as in 
Zambia. His card advertised 
the Jameson Hotel Samora 
Machel Street, Harare, “for 
that special personal touch". 

At one time it had seemed 
as if Mr Healey might have 
been needing a hotel in 
Harare. He had intended to 
see Robert Mugabe in order 
to mend fences between the 
Zimbabweans and the La- 
bour Party. Last year, three 
Labour Party members. Mili- 
tant Tendency supporters of 
South African origin, were 
stirring up trouble in Zimb- 
abwean trade onions to such 
an extent that Mr Mugabe 
had to spend half an hour of 
his party conference speech 
denouncing them. 

But Mr Mugabe, who has a 
somewhat authoritarian no- 
tion of party discipline, as- 
sumed that the three Milit- 
ants were accredited 
emissaries from Walworth 
Road. He had them deported, 
and adopted a frosty tone 
towards the Labour Party. Mr 
Healey had hoped to con- 
vince him that Neil Kinnock 
only regrets his limited pow- 
ers of deportation — but 


Lusaka will take priority. _ 
Last week Mr Healey said 
that South Africa was in 
danger of becoming a banana 
republic. On arrival at Johan- , 
nesbuig, he was greeted by 
good-humoured Afhkaaner 
students carrying bunches of 
bananas. He was initially 
slightly phased by this - 
unsure whether they were 
trying to tease him or their 
own Government. But when 
he realised the joke was 
meant to be on him, he 
quickly advised the students 
to lake their bananas to 
hungry blacks in the town- 
ships. 

At his press conference Mr 
Healey was asked whether he 
had come to South Africa 
with a dosed mind. “No,” he 
said, “an open mind — but 
strong opinions." He won- 
dered if he was allowed to 
state Labour’s position on 
sanctions, which be said “re- 
mained unchanged, but is 
held with greater force than 
ever.” He thought that if he 
went into more detail that 
might be one way of getting to 
see Nelson Mandela. 

1970 meeting 
with Mandela 

He still hopes, to see 
Mandela, but it looks ex- 
tremely unlikely that permis- 
sion mil be granted. If it is 
not, then Mr Healey will have 
no reason to visit Cape Town 
and is therefore unlikely to 
have talks with the Govern- 
ment 

When he was last in South 
Africa, in 1970, be did see 
Mandela, on Robben Island 
— the first foreign politician 
to do so. He also saw the then 
Foreign Minister Heigard 
Muller, who said he was not 
looking forward to Mr Healey 
becoming Foreign Secretary. 
Mr Healey is sure Pik Botha 
feels the same — but he can’t 
wait

Failed bid for Distillers 
cost Argyll £34 million 


ByCHff FeMumi 

Mr James Gulliver, chair- alone was spent on advertis- 


IC Gas 
higher 

Imperial Continental Gas's 
net income rose from £50.7 
million to £56-2 million in the 
year to March 31. helped by a 
sparkling performance from 
the Calor Group subsidiary 
and sharply lower interest 
payments, which together 
more than offset lower profits 
from the company's depressed 
oil interests. 

Earnings per share rose 19 
per cent to 38.5p, while the 
final dividend was increased 
from 9.25p to 105p to make 
an annual total of 16.75p. 

Pretax profits at Cblor rose 
40 per cent to £40.6 minion, 
with sales helped by a cool 
summer and a cold winter as 
well as improved operating, 
efficiency. 

At the same time interest 
costs were cut from £22.4 
million to £9.6 million, re- 
flecting strong cash flow from 
the ml. operations and a 
reduction in borrowings after 
the £78 million sale of the 
Com pair compressed air ma- 
chine making group last July.

Racai Electronics' pretax 
profit slumped 32 per cent to

March 31 on turnover up 18 
per cent to £1.3 billion. The 
dividend was unchanged at 
3.0345p per share. The direc- 
tors expect profits to rise 
substantially this year. The 
shares rose 6p to 200p.

man of the Argyll food group, 
yesterday ruled out any con- . 
tested takeovers for the time 
being after disclosing that the 
costs of mounting the failed 
bid for the Distillers Scotch 
whisky group came to £34.1 
million. 

Together with the costs nut 
up by the successful bidder, 
Guinness, the total bill in- 
volved in the acquisition of 
Distillers came to around 
£145 million. Most of the 
money went to underwriters 
who guaranteed the cash com- 
ponents of the bids. 

“It cost us a lot of money 
but I have no regrets. The bid 
improved our stature in the 
City and highlighted the hid- - 
den value in many of our 
drinks businesses," Mr Gulli- 
ver said. 

He said his own costs would 
have been £15 million more 
had he not negotiated a system 
of “payment by results" with 
the small army of advisers, 
ranging from merchant bank- 
ers to public relations consul- 
tants. A total of £6 million 


tag, and £2 million went on 
professional, fees. 

“1 think we have ruled out 
any mega-bids. And anyway, I 
am not prepared to pay fancy 
prices. But we still want to 
make acquisitions in other 
consumer markets on- an 
Mr Gulliver 


He was announcing forecast 
profits of £64.6 million for last 
year, a rise of 22 percent, with 
the -total dividend up 24 per 
cent to 7.75pa share. 

The net loss of £34. 1 million 
on the abortive Distillers bid 
was taken below the line as an 
extraordinary item after cred- 
iting an after-tax. profit of 
£1 3.9 million on the sale of its 
shareholding in Distillers. 

But the City was more 
concerned about where Mr 
Gulliver goes now — and after 
a meeting with analysts many, 
were ready to place the shares 
in limbo until some clearer 
idea emerges of his intentions. 

Mr Paul Smiddy of the 
stockbroking firm Wood Mac- 
kenzie said: “I don't think the 



James Gulliver: No regrets 
despite high cost of bid 

slock w31 go anywhere in the 
short term. Mr Gulliver is 
making the best of what he has 
got but the market has short- 
term horizons and cannot see 
anything happening in that 
timescale" 

. Mr Julian Hardwick of the 
stockbroker de Zoete & Bevan 
said: “There is plenty he can 
do with the core business, 
particularly in food retailing, 
but the drinks side is not 
viable as it stands and it will 


stagnate. He can make an 
acquisition in this area or gel 
rid of h, but he cannot afford 
another failure." 

Another leading food ana- 
lyst said: “On trading grounds, 
the group looks reasonable but 
I think we are in for a fairly 
unexciting time. 1 don't think 
Mr Gulliver wants to lake any 
chances." 

His cautious stance effec- 
tively rules him out of a 
number of much-rumoured 
takeover situations, particu- 
larly as a bidder for Scottish & 
Newcastle Breweries. 

Argyll, meanwhile, faces a 
challenge in the US. It is 
shoring up its drinks side 
which has seen a 14 per cent 
tall in consumption of Scotch 
and bourbon whisky, although 
it is experiencing strong 
growth in tequila and its 
Corona Extra beer. 

Meanwhile, Mr Gulliver 
says this year is off to a good 
start on the food side. Analysts 
are looking foe profits of 
around £75 million for the 12 
months. 

At home, expansion of its 
Presto supermarket chain is 
continuing.

Britain's leading life insur- 
ance companies have agreed 
to implement a new way of 
quoting the projected final 
benefits of their with-profits 
savings and -pensions 
products. 

The traditional method of 
using current reversionary 
and terminal bonuses is to be 
replaced from November 1 by 
projections based on an as- 
sumed rate of investment 
return, the method already 
used for unit-linked products. 

Thechange means there will 
be a sharp drop in the project- 
ed values advertised for with- 
profits pension and life 
products, including the “nest 
eggs” forecast for pension and 
endowment mortgage plans. 


By Richard Lander 

The ma ximum allowed pro- 
jected investment rate, which 
will also apply to unit-linked 
products, will be 13 per cent 
before life office tax and costs. 
The equivalent rate translated 
from the bonus figures used 
now by most leading life 
companies is about 18-19 per 
cent. 

The new method is tempo- 
rary and will be replaced by 
new arrangements in next 
yearns Financial Services BilL 
These are how under discus- 
sion between the life office 
members of the Association of 
British Insurers (ABI) and the 
Marketing of Investments 
Board Organizing Committee 
(Miboc). 

Several factors have com- 


bined to move the leading life 
offices into changing their 
projection methods. As the 
ABI acknowledged yesterday, 
present high bonus rates re- 
flect the booming world equity 
markets over the past 10 years 
and would have to be cut as 
returns declined in an era of 
low inflation. 

But while a number of 
leading life offices have ac- 
knowledged that bonus rates 
would eventually have to fell, 
none were keen to risk losing 
market share by being the first 
to cut 

The ABI called on life 
companies to use past invest- 
ment performance and finan- 
cial strength to market their 
products. 


Bowater to 
sell stake 
in Andrex 

By Alison Eadie 

Bo water Industries, the pa- 
per, packaging and building 
products group, yesterday an- 
nounced a £78.25 million 
restructuring, which will end 
its connection with Andrex 
toilet tissue in Britain. 

It is selling its 50 per cent 
stake in Bowater-Scott UK, 
manufacturer of Andrex, to 
Scott Paper, the American 
paper group, for £60 million. 

It is also buying Scott’s 50 
per cent stake in Bowater- 
Scott Australia for £18-25 
million. Bowater-Scott UK 
will become wholly owned by 
Scott, and Bowater-Scott Aus- 
tralia will become wholly 
owned by Bo water. 

The dial is subject to ap- 
proval by BowateT’s share- 
holders and the regulatory 
authorities in Australia. 

Bowater said continuation 
qfitsBritishpartnersbipwasno 
longer compatible with its 
objective of reducing histori- 
cal exposure to cyclical and 
capital intensive activities. 

Scott Paper also wanted to. 
add to its European network 
already in place in Italy, 
Spain, Belgium and France. 

The money raised from the 
sale win be used for expansion 

in packaging, builders 
merchanting and other sendee 
activities. Bowater has recent- 
ly added to its builders mer- 
chant division through the 
£12.5 million acquisition of 
Roberts Adlard. 


MARKET SUMMARY 


Rothmans profits fall 
£ 28 m after closures 


By Clare Dobie 

The costs of closing ciga- reflecting depressed demand 

at home and abroad. In Cana- 
da Catling O'Keefe experi- 
enced tough competition, 
contributing to a dip in brew- 
ing profits from £4.2 million 
to £300.000. 


rette factories at 
Carrickfergus, Northern Ire- 
land, and in Toronto sent 
pretax profits at Rothmans 
international tumbling from 
£122 million to £93.9 million 
in the year to March 31. 

Rationalization costs, 
which include those for the 
closure of the Carrickfergus 
plant even though it does not 
take place until August this 
year, totalled £47.4 million 
last year. In the previous year 
rationalization costs of £32.2 
million were charged against 
profits. 

Tobacco profits fen from 
£152 million to £124 million. 


Rothmans’ total sales fell 
from £1.6 billion to £1.47 
billion. 

The final dividend has been 
increased from 42p to 4.5p, 
taking the total to 6.7p (6.4p). 

Group operating profits of 
£1 16 million, down from £141 
million, were hit by currency 
movements, which cost £14 
million. 


CE Heath 
denial on 
lawsuit 

By Lawrence Lever 

CE Heath, the international 
insurance broker, yesterday 
denied reports that its finan- 
cial stability is under threat 
from a $600 million (£396 
million) US lawsuit against 
the Pinnacle Reinsurance 
Company, its Bermuda-based 
subsidiary. 

Pinnade is one of several 
defendants named in the ac- 
tion, which was filed in New 
Orleans on March 3 by the 
joint liquidators of the Mentor 
Group, one of whom is Mr 
Michad Arnold, a partner in 
Arthur Young, the accoun- 
tant, who was appointed re- 
ceiver of the National Union 
of Mineworkers. 

The action alleges that Pin- 
nacle and others conspired 
with Mentor to misrepresent 
the effect of a reinsurance 
contract involving the two 
companies. 

In a statement yesterday, 
CE Heath referred sharehold- 
ers to its report and accounts 
up to March 31, 1986, in 
which the directors stated that 
they considered that no mate- 
rial liability would result from 
the action. 

De Zoete & Bevan, the 
broker, said yesterday that 
institutional investors were 
already familiar with the Pin- 
nade case, adding that it rated 
the chance of Pinnade losing 
the case as remote. 

It pointed to the feet that 
Pinnacle's accountant, Arthur 
Anderson, pave the company 
a clean audit report 

Mr Michael Arnold yester- 
day denied that litigation was 
in any way frivolous. 


Revamped Gibbons to seek quote 


Stanley Gibbons Holdings, 
the stamp dealing company, is 
preparing for another flotation 
attempt after its last efforts at 
obtaining a Stock Exchange 

in disaster and severely 5 dented 
its reputation in the philatelic 
world. 

The company yesterday an- 
nounced details of its deck- 
clearing operations, including 
a successful £2 million rights 
issue, a new board of directors 
and a rationalization of its 
activities. 

However, Mr Ronald Ait- 
ken, the chairman, said he 


By Our City Staff 

would not seek a USM float or 
full market listing before the 
end of next year. Until then, 
the company hopes to have its 
shares traded on the over-the- 
counter market or through the 
Stock Exchange's matched 
bargains rule. 

Mr Ailken arrived at Gib- 
bons in May 1984 after a 
dispute over the business af- 
fairs of the previous chairman, 
Mr Clive Feigenbaum, 
prompted the Stock Exchange 
to suspend dealings in Gib- 
bons shares moments after 
they were listed. The last 
member of the board remain- 


ing from that unhappy time, 
Mr Alan Grant, departed ear- 
lier this month when he 
bought the Urch Harris mail 
order and new issues subsid- 
iary for more than £1 million. 

This sale, along with the 94 
per cent subscribed rights 
issue, has cut borrowings from 
£4 million to £i million while 
issued share capital has qua- 
drupled to £2.9 million. 

Mr Stephen Quinn, thechief 
executive, forecast pretax 
riits of about £200,000 be- 
: extraordinary costs in the 
year ending next week on 
turnover of £15 million.

Hambros steps out 
of the shadows 


Hambros was always too im- 
portant, in size and name, to remain a 
group of grey and confused characters 
flitting indecisively across the City 
scene. It has now come out of the 
shadows; its outlines and ambitions 
are clear and it is steadHy putting in 
place a team that has talent, coherence 
and, above all, the determination to 
shoot at the same goal 

Together the two branches of the 
old ruling family still have control, 
but separated they do not. Effectively 
they have separated, and the direction 
of the group is now in the hands of 
Charles Hambro, who as chairman is 
wise enough to keep family pressures 
off the people who have to get on with 
the work. His two new deputy 
chairmen. Chips Keswick (overseer of 
banking) and Christopher Sporborg 
(non-banking acitivities) have every- 
thing to play for, with the solid 
starting advantage of the group's 
considerable banking business. 

This provided well over half the 
profits, released yesterday , for the 
r ended March 31, and accounted 
much of their healthy improve- 
ment (up 59 per cent, including 
investment gains and excluding 
extraordinary items). It is fair to say 
that the excitement of the past few 
months engendered by the ending of 
Hambro Trust's controlling 
shareholding in Hambros pic has not 
led to any neglect of the underlying 
business. 

Pretax profits were £43.3 million, 
somewhat above the £40 million plus 
forecast at the time of the restructur- 
ing. Banking profits rose 58 per cent to 
£25.5 million, despite a substantial 
but unquantified provision fbr losses 
caused by the collapse of the Inter- 
national Tin Council. Hambros, in 
conjunction with other affected 
banks, is consulting its lawyers. 

Non-banking activities chipped in 
profits of £16.2 million, an increase of 
47 per cent, but this included only a 
10-day contribution from Bairstow 
Eves and nothing from Mann and Co, 
the two recently acquired estate 
agencies. This year's figures could 
safely be expected to provide an 
explosion in non-banking profits. 
Meanwhile, the final dividend of 5p 
on each newly created 20p share 
brings the total dividend for holders of 
the former 5p shares up to 7.2p, 
compared with 6.5p the year before. 

Hambros Countrywide, the new 
name for the estate agency business, 
has had a bumper spring, buoyed by 
rising house prices m the south-east 
and easy mortgage availability. Ham- 
bros is still looking for com- 
plementary businesses to add to its 
range of financial services, but it does 
not contemplate anything major this 
year. 

The bank is sailing serenely into big 
bang with no worries about capital 
adequacy: its does not intend to 
become a primary market-maker in 
the London market, although it can 
point with pride and pleasure both to 
the profits of brokers Strauss, 
Turnbull (Hambros' 30 per cent stake 
yielded a cool £3.4 million ) and the 
derivation of a large part of them — 
the joint company with Societe 


Generale — which is a leading 
secondary market-maker in the Euro- 
bond market. 

Hambros' approach to the excite- 
ments to come is “well-balanced." 
With 4,000 corporate customers hav- 
ing deposit accounts at the bank it 
reckons that it is well placed to defend 
and increase its client base. Or, looked 
at in a different way, an average of 
£10,000 from successfully managing 
each account would provide a profit 
of £40 million. 

Recent emphasis has been on fee 
earning rather than lending, because 
margins on lending are not considered 
good enough. The loan book actually 
shrank last year. Hambros pointed out 
yesterday that the average life of its 
loans are under one year, giving it 
great flexibility, and its exposure to 
Latin America is not substantial. As 
the endowment element in bank 
accounts shrinks with inflation, 
Hambaros believes that its lower cost 
base, provided it is also efficient in a 
constructive sense, will provide it 
with better margins than will come the 
way of major clearing banks. 

Sears looks up 

In the third stage of a varied and 
interesting career Michad Pickard is 
adding to his stature, a rare feat for a 
man who already measures six feet, 
six inches tall. Until recently deputy 
chief executive of Imperial Group, he 
has been appointed deputy chief 
executive of Sears, the empire Charles 
Gore built and which his friend and 
ally, Leonard Sainer, now life presi- 
dent has ruled since Gore's death 

The expectation is that Mr Pickard, 
who begins his new job on September 
1, will before too long move up to 
chief executive, relieving Geoffrey 
Maitland Smith of his dual role as 
chairman and chief executive. If that 
is correct it is just conceivable that 
Sears — still a powerful retailing 
presence through Selfridges, Lewis’s, 
major footwear chains and jewellers, 
and a force in betting (William Hill) 
and in vehicle distribution and en- 
gineering — may recover some of its 
lost vigour and former decisiveness. 

Mr Pickard made a mark with the 
City when he (rather than Geoffrey 
Kent) spearheaded Imperial's vig- 
orous, though ultimately unsuccess- 
ful, defence against Hanson Trust His 
role could not have escaped Mr 
Maitland Smith's notice since he sat at 
Imperial as a non-executive director. 
The two men also knew each other in 
another context Mr Pickard was 
chairman of Grattan in 1983 when 
Sears attempted to reshape the mail 
order market by merging Grattan and 
Empire Stores 

It is said that Mr Pickard's arrival at 
Sears will not herald any dramatic 
changes of direction. Pursuing its 
steady expansion earlier this week, 
Sears announced the £12 million 
acquisition of Milieus Leisure. Sears 
has also extended its betting interests 
Yet so far Sears has remained 
relatively untouched by the huge 
changes taking place in the high street. 
This self-imposed immunity surely 
cannot last for ever. 


Watchdog 
for gas 

Mr James McKinnon, a 
chartered accountant, until 
recently Imperial Group fi- 
nance director, has been ap- 
pointed the first director 
general of gas supply - the 
prices watchdog over the gas 
industry after its privatization 
in the autumn. 

The appointment which 
carries a salary of about 
£50,000 a year, was an- 
nounced in the Commons by 
Mr Peter Walker, Secretary of 
State for Energy. The director 
general, with the Gas 
Consumers’ Council, would 
provide improved consumer 
protection, he said.

By Lawrence Lever 

The Securities and Invest- broad range of commercially 


men is Board made it dear 
yesterday that self-regulation 
will entail considerable self- 
examination by investment 
businesses wishing to operate 
under the new regime. 

The board published draft 
requirements for businesses 
wishing to seek the necessary 
authorization to carry out 
investment activities directly 
fhom it These are in the form 
of a general application form 
and business plan question- 
naire and designed to elicit 
whether applicants for autho- 
rization are fit and proper to 
-cany out their intended 
business. 

Under the terms of the 
Financial Services Bill all 
investment businesses wifi re- 
quire direct authorization 
from the SIB although, ta 
practice, most will choose the 
alternative of joining 8 self- 
regulatory organization 
(SRO). However, the require- 
ments published yesterday 
will provide the benchmark 
for the SRO network. 

Under tire draft, require- 
ments applicants for authori- 
zation will have to reveal a 


sensitive and personal infor- 
mation. This will be made 
available to other regulatory 
authorities such as the Depart- 
ment of Trade and Industry 
and the Bank of England. The 
SIB can also divulge it to the 
police, according to the BUI, 
but not to the Inland Revenue- 
Sir Kenneth Berrill, chair- 
man of the SIB, said yesterday 
that the board was “quite 
determined to use every 
means available to secure that 
authorized businesses are run 
by competent and honest offi- 
cers with financial standards 
that ensure solvency and 
proper investor protection-” 
The general questionnaire is 
divided into four sections 
governing the profile, previ- 
ous record and compliance 
arrangements of businesses 
and the expertise and record 
of their key personnel. It 
applies to all businesses 
whether limited companies, 
partnerships, unincorporated 
associations or sole traders. 

Questions under the profile 
section will enable the SIB to 
determine the precise owner- 
ship and control of a group of 



Sir Kenned) Berrill: wants 
“proper protection" 

companies, and the identities 
of shareholders owning more 
titan 5 per cent of a business. 

They will also elicit consid- 
erable f inancial information 
about the businesses. For in- 
stance, companies will have to 
reveal details of all external 
financing arrangements, while 
partners have to say whether 
they are satisfied that none of 
their fellow partners is finan- 
cially over-committed to an 
extent which could adversely 
aflfect the partnership. 


The “applicant’s record 
section should elicit many 
disclosures from businesses. 
One question obliges an appli- 
cant to reveal whether it has 
“ever been criticized, cen- 
sured or disciplined by any- 
body of which it is a member 
or by any other regulatory 
body in Britain such as the 
CSi or Takeover PaneL" 

While a number of the more 
aggressive merchant banks 
mil have to answer this 
question in the affirmative, 
the question which follows is 

S to inundate the STB with 
isures. 


This asks whether appli- 
cants have “ever received any 
communication from the Reg- 
istrar of Companies concern- 
ing compliance with the 
requirements of the Compa- 
nies A cl" An enormous num- 
ber of private companies are 
late in filing accounts and 
annual returns, thereby trig- 
gering such communications. 

The business plan question- 
naire applies to new and 
existing businesses and win 
require them to indicate the 
intended level of their 
activities.

Racal optimistic despite slump 


Although they were much as 
expected, Racal Electronics' 
prelim i nary results an- 
nounced yesterday do not 
make enjoyable reading. The 
pretax profit was down nearly 
a third from £132 million to 
£90 million for the year to 
March 31, despite the inclu- 
sion of an £8.5 million gain 
on the sale of its oil and gas 
interests. 

In addition there was an 
extraordinary charge of £14.2 
million for closure costs, 
including redundancy. 

A £45 million drop in 
profits from Data Communi- 
cations in the United States, 
losses of £12.2 million in the 
developing cellular radio 
business and a £12 million 
jump in interest charges were 
the main culprits. 

The optimistic statement 
accompanying these dismal 
results dwells on the rosier 
aspects of 1986/7. 

Rationalization and cost 
reduction programmes intro- 
duced last autumn should 
turn round the performance 
of the data communications 
companies in the US. At 
Racal'Milgo in Florida, the 
order book is 60 per cent 
ahead of last year at $236 
million. 

The directors forecast that 
cellular radio's £12 million 
loss will be transformed into 
a £5 million profit. With 



and lower interest rates mean 
that the total interest charge 
should fall this year. 

Despite the optimistic tone 
of the statement, Racal will 
be doing well in 1986/7 if it 
matches its 1984/5 perfor- 
mance. Pretax profit of £130 
million will put the shares on 
a prospective multiple of 14. 

Tibbett & Britten 


37,000 subscribers making 
1% million calls a week, 
Racal reckons it has dose to 
50 per cent of the market it 
shares with British Telecom, 
rather than the 40 per cent 
originally targeted. It began 
to break-even last March, and 
is connecting between 700 
and 800 new subscribers ev- 
ery week. 

There is some relief in sight 
for the strained balance sheet, 
where the debt/equity ratio at 
the financial year end was 57 
per cent having peaked dur- 
ing 1 985/6 at 65 per cent 

The interest charge attrib- 
utable to cellular radio will 
increase by £5 million to £12 
million, but for the group as a 
whole, positive cash flows 


It is not just the names that 
are changing in the high 
street Stock rooms are fast 
disappearing, in favour of 
increased selling space. 

Companies like Christian 
Salvesen have been quick to 
taka up the challenge to 
provide fast and efficient 
daily distribution of food to 
high street shops from de- 
pots. Tibbett & Britten, 
which is coming to the stock 
market does the same with 
dothes. 

Marks and Spencer ac- 
counted for 60 per cent of 
Tibbett & Britten sales of 
£32.6 million last year. The 
proportion is likely to rise 
soon as the company is 
equipping its first regional 
distribution centre for Marks 
and Spencer which will con- 
tribute extra annual sales of 
£6 milli on from September. 

Tibbett & Britten's other 
customers indude Asda, 
Moihercare and Debenhams. 
Though Marks and Spencer 
will account for well over 60 
per cent of group sales in the 


short terra, the company 
hopes that other retail cus- 
tomers will become increas- 
ingly important 

The risk of losing the 
Marks and Spencer business 
entirely is probably small but 
the company could be vulner- 
able to squeezed margins. 

Tibben & Britten is raising 
£6.9 million after expenses of 
£600,000 as part of the flota- 
tion. This money will be used 
to equip the first of the two 
Marks and Spencer distribu- 
tion centres. 

At I20p a share the compa- 
ny is capitalized at £31.5 
million. On forecast profits of 
£3.25 million the prospective, 
multiple is 13.4, which repre- 
sents a small discount to 
Christian Salvesen. 

The company's directors 
have have turned £300,000 
into £23 million, which they 
are realhang now. plus £15.8 
million in their remaining 
half share of the company 
since they bought it from 
Unilever m 1984. New inves- 
tors may not do quite as wdl 
— but they should find the 
investment in a growing mar- 
ket rewarding . 

Siebe/APV 


The success last week of the 
FH Tomkins bid for Pegler- 
HattersJey gives some perti- 
nent pointers to the likely 
outcome of Siebe's £212.7 
million bid for APV Holdings 
which doses on Friday. 


Investors are again being 
asked to choose between the 
philosophy of an ambitious 
mini-conglomerate and that 
of a specialized engineering 
group which is recovering 
after several Jean years. 

This time the aggressor is 
comfortably larger than the 
target and is keenly arguing 
about industrial synergy — 
something that Tomkins was 
unconcerned about Siebe's 
managing director. Barrie 
Stephens, is less well known 
to the City than his APV 
counterparts, but has a fine 
record. 

On the other hand, APV’s 
new management is dearly 
coming up with the goods 
rather sooner then Pegler- 
Hattersley. After profits dou- 
bled in 1985, an 80 per cent 
jump to at least £27 million is 
forecast for this year, plus a 
53 percent dividend increase. 

Before the bid most ana- 
lysis were comfortably pen- 
cilling in £19 million, with an 
occasional £22 million. Had 
they been misdirected, or did 
the company not realize how 
well things were going? 

With Siebe at 955p. the 
convertible preference share 
offer is worth 67 Ip. just lp 
better than the cash alterna- 
tive. APV, at 67 lp, is on a 
prospective p/e ratio of 13. 
Analysts both for and against 
the bid agree that growth next 
year is likely to slow down, 
with profits of between £31 
million and £32 million. 

Convertible preference 
shares are unlikely to com- 
pete now that the paper offer 
is in line with the cash. APV’s 
shares stood at 350p before 
the bid and are set to fall back 
significantly if it foils. 

IfSiebe wins, the sins ofthe 
previous management will 
have been visited on the 
present i^m at APV. But 
shareholders are now seeing a 
share price which would have 
been unthinkable just 
months ago. On Friday we 
will know if the old has again 
lost out to the new. Selling in 
the market is a persuasive 
option.

Mr Paul Volcker. chairman 
of the Federal Reserve Board, 
warned Mexico to push 
through internal reforms indi- 
cating a substantial change in 
the direction of its economy, 
to demonstrate its intention 
to service its $97 billion debt. 

Once this is done, creditor 
nations, led by the United 
States, “will provide forcefiil 
financial support to give them 
breathing room to restore 
growth in 1987 and 1988." Mr 
Volcker said. 

Senor Gustavo Peiricioli. 
the new Mexican finance min- 
ister. however, said: “We can- 
not go on maintaining a strict 
observation of the obligations 
we have contracted," echoing 
earlier statements by Presi- 
dent Miguel de la Madrid that 
Mexico might limit its pay- 
ments to its paying capacity. 
Senor Peiricioli is expected in 
Washington for talks with the 
IMF next week. 

Mr Volcker said that over 
the short run the resolution of 
Mexico's debt problem will 
require “a lot of effort by the 
World Bank, the International 
Monetary Fund, commercial 
banks and government'* 

At the same time. Mr 
Volcker admitted that despite 
the worsening debt crisis in 
some countries, the Reagan 
Administration, because of 
severe budget restraints 
caused by growing US deficits, 
could not support a general 
capital increase for the banks. 

The challenge facing Mr 
Barber Conable Junior, the 
incoming president of the 
World Bank, is to move 
forward with growth pro- 
grammes involving some risk 
to demonstrate to Western 
governments that they should 
increase the bank's resources. 

Then. Mr Volcker said, he 
felt sure the US and other 
Western governments would 
live up to their agreement in 
Tokyo to support a general 
capital increase for the bank. 

Mr Volcker also joined in 
the rising chorus of voices 
urging the Japanese to con- 
structively recycle their huge 
$50 billion trade surplus with 
the rest of the world by 
increasing their development 
assistance to Third World 
countries. 

It was also learned that 
negotiations are underway at 
the bank to increase Japan's 
voting power in the IMF and 
World Bank. 


STOCK MARKET REPORT 


BT slips after warniu 




British Telecom — labelled 
“The People's Share" when it 
came to market in 1984 — is 
losing some of its appeal in the 
City in the face or increasing 
competition from its main 
rival. Mercury. 

Today, a weighty circular on 
BT from Smith New Court 
will be dropping on the desks 
of fund managers, warning 
them that the shares have lost 
a lot of their premium rating. 

Mr Bill Dixon, an analyst at 
Smith New Court, the market- 
maker, is scathing about the 
company and its prospects. He

and should benefit Lee, which 
still boasts considerable 
potential.

Morgan Grenfell says it has 
issued over 80,000 application 
forms in connection with the 
issue. Dealings are due to start 
tomorrow. With turnover 
down to a trickle, dealers were

claims: “BT is ponderous and 
inefficient and can do little in 
the face of competition from 
rival Mercury,’’ 

In fine with most analysis, 
he is looking for pretax profits 
in the current year to March 
31, 1987, to rise from £1,800 
million to £1,960 million. But 
for 1988, he forecasts a sharp 
slow dow . in growth, with a 
figure of only £2.000 million. 

This is way below other 
market estimates. Rivals such 
as de Zoete & Be van are still 
looking for profits of £2.255 
million. 


Mr Dixon backs up his 
argument with a list of figures. 
He estimates that Mercury 
will speak for 5.5 per cent of 
inland long-distant telephone 
calls and at least 4 per cent of 
overseas calls from Britain. 

Shares of BT appear to have 


lut the gilt-edged market 
was looking a lot more confi- 
dent. sporung gains of up to 
£Vj, with investors still looking 
for an early cut in bank base 
rates. 

GEC responded to wishful 
thinking on the pan of market 
speculators with a !2p rise to 
20Sp. They are still dreaming 
of a mega-bid from BTR, 
unchanged at 31Sp. 

Marketmen are also saying 
that International Signal & 
Control will use some of the 
proceeds from its recent rights 
issue to launch that long- 
awaited bid for United Scien- 
tific Holdings, steady at 1 33p. 
USH is expected to announce 
orders worth £50 million for 
its Scorpion armoured car at 
the Army Exhibition. There 
are also reports that talks 
regarding a £250 million order 
for armoured cars from Indo- 
nesia may have started again. 

In stores. Wool worth tum- 
bled 20p to 745p on nervous 
selling by the arbitragers. 
There are now fears in the 
market that Dixons' £1,900 
million bid will foil. If so. the 
downside on Woolworth's 
share price could be another 
200p, claim marketmen.

Harry Davies are offering £23

Department of Energy 
‘should be abolished’ 


The Department of Energy 
should be abolished after the 
privatization of British Gas 
and all energy industries, in- 
cluding nuclear power sta- 
tions, handed over to the 
private sector, according to 
the Institute of Directors. 

In a policy paper published 
today, the loD suggests that 40 
years of Government inter- 
vention in the energy indus- 
tries has led to high prices, 
over-supply and the distortion 
of the patterns of production. 

It says that domestic bills 
could be cut by billions of

The IoD adds: “If Bnush

mined in future, as n has been 
in the past, primarily for the 
convenience of the coal indus- 
try, energy consumers will lose 
more than ihey have done as 
the gap widens between high 
coal prices and low and Silling 
energy prices. 7 ' 

However, the IoD s case is 
weakened by the fact that it 
compares British electricity 
prices - which it says are high 
because they are produced by 
a state-run generating author- 
ity — and those of France, 
which are low because the

It declares: “The Chernobyl

The IoD makes the follow- 
ing suggestions: 

• The function of the Depart- 
ment of Energy should be 
absorbed into the Treasury 
and the Department of Trade 
and Industry. 

• British Coal should be 
abolished and the develop- 
ment of new mines should be 
left entirely to private capital;

Peruvian 
warning 
on $750m 
IMF debt 

Lima, (Reuter) — Pam does 
not foresee paying the Interna- 
tional Monetary Fund all the 
$750 million it owes during 
the next three years, Seaor 
Litis Alva Castro, Prime Min- 
ister and Economy Minister, 
said yesterday. 

“Without heating around 
tire b*$h,-we want to say that 
we are doubtless not in a 
position to pay the IMF what 
we owe it during the next three 
years,” he told the Socialist 
International conference. 

The Penman government 
has suspended most payments 
doe to foreign creditors since 
President Alan Garcia took 
office last July, with a pledge 

to limit debt repayments to 10 
per cent of export earnings. 

Seaor Castro said that pay- 
ing the IMF woald represent 
seven per cent of projected 
exported earnings. 

Peru has only paid the IMF 
$355 million this year, and 
needs to dear about $186 
millio n before August 15_ to 
avoid losing its borrowing 
rights, Peruvian finance offi- 
cials said. 

A loss of borrowing rights, 
widely considered a key mea- 
sure of credit-worthing, 
could scale back loans from 
the World Bank.

Drake v Chief Adjudication 

Officer 

Case 150/85 

Before: K. Bahim?m, Presi- 
dent of the Fourth Chamber, 
and Judges T. Koopmans, G. 
Bosco, T. F. O'Higgins and F. 
A. Schodcweiler 
Advocate General G. F. 
Mantim (Opinion given April 
22, 1986) 

[Judgment given June 24] 

Invalid care allowance 
formed part of a statutory 
invalidity scheme which foil 
within the scope of Council 
Directive No 79/7 despite the 
fact that it was paid to a third 
party and not directly to the 
disabled person. 

Mrs Jacqueline Drake was 
married and lived with her 
husband. Over a number of 
pears she had held a variety of 
full-time and part-time jobs. 

In June 1984 her mother, who 
was severely disabled, came to 
live with her. Mrs Drake 
thereupon gave up her work in 
order to look after her mother. 

Section 37(1) of the Social 
Security. Act 1975 provided . 
for the payment of an invalid 
cans allowance where, utter 
alto, (a) the applicant was 
regularly and substantially en- 
gaged in caring for a severely 
disabled person: and (b) the 
applicant was not gainfully 
employed. 

Under section 37(3) the 
invalid care allowance was not 
paid to any person who was 
under the age of 16 or was 
engaged m full-time educa- 
tion; to a married woman 
living with or maintained by 
her husband or to a woman 
when she and a man to whom 
she was not married were 
living together as husband and 
wife. 

On February 5, 1985 Mrs 
Drake applied for the allow- 
ance in respect of the care 
provided by her to her moth- 
er. The adjudication officer 
stated that under Section 
37{3Xa)fi) the benefit was not 
payable to a mamed woman 
reading with her husband and 
he referred the claim to a 
social security tribunaL 

The tribunal held that the 
rule constituted discrimina- 
tion. on the .ground of sex 
contrary to Council Directive 
No 79/7/EEC on the progres- ■ 
gve implementation of the 
principle of equal treatment 
for men and women in mai- 
lers of social security (OJ No 
L 6 of January 10, .1979, p24).

THE TIMES WEDNESDAY JUNE 25 1986 


David Smith exam ines the prospects of main tainin g industrial growth 

Mixed signals on UK recovery 


Doubts about continued 
growth in Britain's economy 
which began with a run of 
poor output and unemploy- 
ment figures over die winter 
have refused to go away, 

Mr Nigel Lawson, Chancel- 
lor of the Exchequer, admitted 
on Friday that growth Lhis 
year was liicely to fell below 
the official 3 per cent forecast, 
but he said that the economy 
would put in a stronger perfor- 
mance next year than the 2.5 
per cent first-half growth con- 
tained in the Budget forecast 
The Chancellor did not put 
any numbers on his new 
assessment of economic pros- 
pects, although he will have 
had at bis disposal the 
Treasury's summer forecast, 
which is not published. This is 
believed to have pared growth 
for this year to just below 2.5 
per cent while boosting the 
growth forecast for next year 
to around 3.25 per cent 
The inference is clear. The 
collapse in oil prices tad an 
initial depressing effect on 
economic activity, but this 
will give way, in the 
Chancellor’s words, “to a 
vigorous resumption of 
growth," as the economy ad- 
justs to the new situation. 

Sure enough, first quarter 
results were poor in most of 
the major economies. In Ger- 
many gross domestic product 
fell, putting Britain's 0.7 per 
cent quarter-on-quarter rise in 
gross domestic product at the 
upper end of the ranges of 


industrialized countries' 
performance. 

But in Germany, France 
and Britain, the story appears 
to have been the same. The 
depressed first quarter gave 
way to a strong rise in output 
in April. 

The cosy picture of acceler- 
ating growth after a first 
quarter lull is, however, not 
felling into place very easily. - 
Retail sales data have suggest- 
ed a decline in sales volume in 
April and May. admittedly 
after a high March figure. 

More importantly, the Con- 
federation of British 
Industry's Monthly Trends 
Enquiry* published on Mon- 
day. suggests that orders re- 
main depressed and 
expectations for output 
gloomy. 

Anticipated output is partic- 
ularly important. Twenty-five 
per cent of firms surveyed 
expected it to rise over the 
next four months, IS per cent 
expected a fell and 60 per cent 
no Change- 

Surveys can. of course, be 
proved wrong but, as far as the 
official output figures are con- 
cerned, there is an element of 
self-fulfilling prophecy about 
the expectations of CB1 
members. 

This is because they are 
incorporated into the Central 
Statistical Office's figures for 
manufacturing output in the 
form of a bias adjustment, 
intended to correct-tor under- 
recording. The more gloomy 
the survey results from the 



Nigel Lawson: “rigorous 
growth ahead" 

CBI, the lower the bias adjust- 
ment. The bias adjustment in 
April accounted for 1.1 of the 
1.8 per cent rise in manufac- 
turing output. 

Apart from the technical 
importance of the CBI results, 
they were dearly showing that 
the economy has remained 
depressed well into the second 
quarter. 

The London Business 
School in its June Economic 
Outlook, published over the 
weekend, predicted 2 per cent 
growth in the output measure 
of gross domestic product this 
year, with a 3 2 per cent figure 
:n 1987. 

This forecast is based on the 
view that the economy has 
begun to recover after its first 
quarter pause, and that growth 
will accelerate through the 
year and into 1987. 

The LBS sees the problem 


of sluggish manufacturing out- 
put as reflecting “an inade- 
quate supply response to the 
-needs of the domestic con- 
sumer, not insufficient 
demand." 

Next year, with personal 
incomes boosted by strong 
growth in real earnings and lax 
cuts, domestic demand is 
expected to be particularly 
strong — real disposable in- 
come growth of 3.4 per cent 
producinga 4. 1 per cent rise in 
consumer spending. 

And that, perhaps, is the key 
to the growth puzzle at 
present. Indicators of spend- 
ing and incomes — notwith- 
standing the April and May 
retail sales figures — are 
generally quite strong. But 
indicators of output have been 
weak for some time. 

The first quarter rise in the 
average estimate of GDP of 
0.7 per cent concealed a range 
of increases, from only 0.2 per 
cent in the output measure, to 
0.6 per cent in income GDP 
and 1.2 per cent in the 
expenditure measure. 

The output measure of 
GDP was up by only 1.1 per 
cent on a year earlier, after 
allowing for the effects of the 
coal strike. When the strike 
effects and oil are excluded, 
the figures show, a small 
decline between the fourth 
quarter of last year and the 
first quarter of this year. 

So there are two sides to the 
question of whether growth is 
returning. The first concerns 
incomes and spending, and

Cambridge Tripos results 


whether they can be expected 
to continue buoyant 

Mosi economists would an- 
swer yes to this. Incomes will ! 
be boosted in the way outlined | 
by the LBS — with growth in 
average earnings outstripping 
that in retail prices by four or 
five percentage points. Spend- 
ing is almost guaranteed to 
result from this. 

But this brings us to the 
second question : will higher 
incomes and spending be re- 
flected in stronger output in 
Britain. Here the answer is 
typically a heavily qualified 
ves. 

Some upturn in output is 
bound to result from rising 
incomes and spending, but 
problems of British industry's 
competitiveness will inevita- 
bly mean that growth in 
output here lags and growth in 
output elsewhere accelerates. 

The crux of the problem is 
not whether growth in the 
economy, broadly defined, 
picks up strongly in the com- 
ing months. There is every 
reason to think that it will, as 
the “windfall” effects of lower 
oil prices, already present in 
inflation rates, come through 
on outpuL 

More difficult is the 
sustainability of this upturn if, 
in large part, it draws in 
increasing quantities of im- 
ported goods. Mr Lawson 
should be worried about the 
economy, not in the final six 
months of this year but in the 
second half of 1 987. Industry’s 
gloom may be justified.

tion results from Cambridge

By Diana Wildman 


i ■ • 

‘Portugal's entry into the Common 
[Market, its recent lowering of property 
{taxes and the continuing slide of the 
'escudo against sterling are just three 
■factors which are encouraging British 
^purchasers of leisure homes to look 
towards Portugal. An extra factor could 
just be that this is the 600th anniversary 
| of the signing of the Treaty of Windsor 
by the then reigning monarchs of 
Portugal and England — which makes 
'Portugal one of Britain's oldest allies. 

! The 15 per cent SISA (property, 
transfer tax) payable on . all homes 
costing more than 20 million escudos 
(about £47,000) bas been reduced to 10 
per cent of the purchase price. Any new 
property valued below 10 million escu- 
dos is exempt from SISA but resales 
continue to be subject to a 10 per cent ■ 
charge. 

Vale do Lobo is a sophisticated leisure 
complex on the Algarve coast boasting 
an impressive range of sporting and 
holiday facilities as well as a large 
administrative department, which han- 
dles all aspects of sales, rentals, manage- 
ment and security. ‘ 

So far, 700 villas have been completed 
and sold — many of them are linked into 
Vale do Lobo's club membership 
scheme. Cub membership averages a 
reasonable £300 a year per unit, and 

The largest doable-deck 
golf-driving range in Europe 

members and guests, including anyone 
renting through Vale do Lobo. are 
entitled to , use alt the development's 
facilities at very competitive rates. 

There are three linked nine-hole golf 
courses, for which members pay only £5 
in daily green fees, while visitors are 
charged £20. The impressive array of 
facilities indudes the 12-court Roger 
Taylor tennis centre, which has its own 
restaurant and clubhouse, and a leisure 
centre with swimming pools, mini-golf 
and badminton. 

There is also a double-deck golf- 
driving range, the largest in Europe, 
alongside which a sports centre, includ- 
ing air-conditioned squash courts, is now 
being built for completion next year. 

Properties for sale indude one-bed- 
room and two-bedroom apartments, 
which are being built in small low-rise

The Temple, a foUy on Temple Island, Henley-on-Thames, 
marks the start for most of the races at Che Henley Royal Re- 

gatta which takes place next week, and it is now to be sold by 

Marjone Mackenzie, whose family has held the freehold of 
the island for more than 130 years. The Temple was 
designed by James Wyatt in 1771 and has a set of hand- 
painted wall decorations by him. The folly, which 
incorporates a three- bed room nnmodemized cottage, is

Boom town flats 


■ Spence House, at Beaulieu, 
Hampshire, is a fine contemporary 
proparty designed by the late Sir Basil 
Spence for his own occupation. In an 
outstanding positron on the eastern 
bank of the Beaulieu river, it has been 
designed to take full advantage of the 
views. In the three acres of grounds there 
is a three-room log cabin ideal for 
weekend guests, and the partially . 
wooded grounds have been carefully 
landscaped. Jackson and Jackson, of 
Lymington, is asking £350,000. 


Newly built or refurbished high-quality 
property remains in high demand in 
central London, defying any suggestion 
that the boom is ending. In the past three 
years, according to a Savills guide, the 
market has increased by 30 per cent, 35 
per cent and 25 per cent and although 
the increase has recently steadied it is 
still likely to be 10 to I S per cent in the 
next year. 

Apart from a general demand from 
overseas buyers and British 
businesssmen doing well from the City’s 
forthcoming “Big Bang” one of the 
reasons for the successful sale of property 
when it comes on to the market is that 
much of it is almost custom-built, 
designed according to buyers* needs 
rather than speculative building wailing 
for customers. 

Estate agents with international con- 
nections being approached by potential 
buyers with their requirements are more 
and more involved in the process from 
the earliest stages, and the partnership of 
developer, architect, interior designer 
and agent is providing what is wanted. 

The refurbishment of a fine Edwardi- 
an building at Palace Court, north of 
Hyde Park, might have been a gamble 
because of its location, but Richard 
Collins, of Fremantle Properties, a 
former estate agent, had no fears. The 
carefully designed and expensive apart- 
ments, with an English feel, costing from 
£200.000 to £650000. have struck a 
chord, so that in six weeks 16 of the 25 
have been sold and one is under offer. 
Victoria Mitchell, of Savills. agents for 
the development, reports that the pur- 
chasers are predominantly English, 
mostly City people requiring quick 


access to their work. Two of them 
specifically wanted a home on the 
Central line. 

Some of the flats are definitely for 
weekday living, but the family flats have 
done well, and the full services, including 
porterage, laundry and the like, have 
been a selling point. ! 

In Park Road, opposite Regent's Park, | 
Beverley House provides 66 apartments i 
designed for the international market | 
and the agents, Hampton and Sons, have i 
been involved from the beginning. This i 
new block, by First Capital City Devel- j 
opmenis and designed by the American 
based architects CRS, offers spacious 
flats and a high level of security, and 
while still under construction 38 of the 
50 flats currently on the market are either 
sold or under offer. 

Linda Beaney says Hampton and Sons 
sold from plan from last September, and 
a third of the aparimen ts had gone by the 
end of April. The wide range of flats, 
from studios to four-bedroom apart- 
ments, were originally priced from 
£90,000 to £590,000. The re maining 
units cost from £330,000 to £475,000. 

Number 29, Wilton Crescent, Belgra- 
via, is a totally refurbished fine period 
house, It has been pm on the market at 
£2.5 million for a 51-year lease by 
Wilson, Mordant and Sons. The house 
fa as a drawing room, a panelled dining 
room and two further reception rooms, a .! 
principal bedroom suite and six further 
bedrooms. It has staff accommodation 
and a roof terrace, and there are special 
security arrangements.

RACING: CECIL’S HIGH-CLASS COLT CAN COLLECT FEATURE PRIZE AT KEMPTON PARK’S EVENING MEETING 


ATHLETICS

Derby form to 
be upheld 
by Faraway 
Dancer 


By Mandarin 


The Derby form again 
comes under scrutiny at this 
evening's Kempton Park 
meeting where Henry Cecil 
saddles Faraway Dancer, 
fourth in the Epsom classic, 
for the ten fariongs Racal- 
Vodafone Stakes. 

Nisnas, from Paul Cole's 
Whatcombe yard, was the first 
of the Derby field to reappear, 
and this strong Tap On Wood 
coll, who was a short head 
behind Faraway Dancer in 
fifth place at Epsom, did not 
let the form down with a good 
third behind Bonhomie in the 
King Edward VII Stakes at 
Royal Ascot last week, after 
having a none too clear run in 
the dosing stages. 

In the Derby Faraway 
Dancer, enterprisingly ridden 
by Willie Ryan, nearly gained 
third place behind 
Shahrastani and Dancing 
Brave, but his stamina ran out 
in the dosing stages after he 
had been second entering the 
straight, and his stable com- 
panion -Mashkour snatched 
the minor honour from him 
on the line. 


fourth behind English Spring 
in the Prince of Wales's Stakes 
on the opening day of the 
Royal Ascot meeting, will 
provide worthwhile opposi- 
tion.

Faraway Dancer's prepara- 
tion for the big race had been 
hindered because of a bruised 
heel so his classic effort was 
even more commendable.

The outstanding success of 
(be Peter CreenaU-Ricbard Lee 
conbhuition this season raises - 
the question, once again, of the 
training of point-to-pointers in 
livery yards. This was one of the 
isms covered in the Jockey 
Club working party's report, 
published in February. 

Livery yards enable those 
owners without their own facil- 
ities to keep, bum and race a 
horse. A few, however, exist 
primarily to provide race train- 
ing facilities to the standard of a 
Unused trainer, livery yards 
undoubtedly contribute to raisr 
iug the standard or the sport and 
giving the opportunity for in- 
creased involvement. 

I bear, already, of another 
owner building up a substantial 
string to be trained for the 1987 
season. However, point-to-point 
is an amateur sport and should 
remain so. My solstfou would be 
not to limit the size of the livery 
yards but to limit the number of 
horses any one owner could race 
from an address other than h»a 


own.

approach to the southern circ uit . 
One achievement in this region 


The American-bred colt un- 
derlined his potential with a 
live-length victory in 
Chester's Dee Stakes, run over 
ten furlongs, in May and it will 
be a major disappointment if 
this smart three-year-old does 
not regain the winning thread 
tonight, particularly as the 
distance and fast conditions 
look tailor-made for him . 

Wylfe, one of the senior 
runners, who was involved in 
a far bit of scrimmaging with 
Bedtime before finishing 


to his credit, is not so effective 
on top of the ground condi- 
tions, and has plenty to find 
with Wylfe on their Sandown 
running behind Bedtime. But 
this is best left to Faraway 
Dancer, who is napped to 
uphold the Derby form. 

Cecil will also be hoping 
that his well-bred, but temper- 
amental Sariza. who is by 
Posse out of Tolmi, will 
enhance her value as a 
broodmare by collecting the 
LBC Fillies' Slakes. She 
showed promise on her only 
start when making a good deal 
of the early running in Chief 
Pal's Warwick race, but I 
prefer to rely on Robert 
Armstrong's Butsova, who 
was a promising third behind 
Flower Bowl at Leicester 


Faraway Dancer (hoops), prominent at Tattenham Comer before Bnishihg fourth 
in the Derby, is fended for the Racal-Vodafone Stakes at Kempton 


John Dunlop's Bold Pillag- 
er has missed two tempting 
engagements to tackle the 
Racal-Chubb Handicap, and 
this progressive four-year-old 
showed clear signs of reaching 
peak form when running 
Aventino, who had hacked up 
in his two previous starts, to a 
neck at the last Sandown 
meeting. 

Michael Stoute, this 
season's leading trainer, has 
found what looks to be a 
heaven-sent opportunity for 
Royal Nugget to gain an 
overdue victory in the 
Baldersby Apprentice Maiden 
Stakes at Ripon this after- 
noon. This attractive filly had 
high-class form as a juvenile, 
and was not discredited when 


fourth behind Meteoric at 
Newmarket last month. 

Another successful New- 
market raider should be the 
Luca Cumani-trained Main- 
tain in the six-furlong 
E.B.F.Melmerby Maiden 
Stakes. The colt foiled to land 
the odds at Newmarket be- 
hind Albasar, but has plenty of 
improvement in him . 

Ian Balding looks the train- 
er to follow at Salisbury. His 
Modena Reef gamely held off 
Ai Zuraurrud at Leicester last 
month and should follow up 
successfully in the Gibbs Mew 
Bibury Handicap. The 
Kingsciere trainer should also 
be on the mark in the Weyhill 
Maiden Fillies Stakes with 
Chasing Moonbeams, who 


showed immense promise on 
her debut at Newbury where 
she gave the odds-on Interval 
a good tussle. 

Another attractive prospect 
at the. Wiltshire course is Con 
Horgan’s Bold Realm, who 
despite winning his latest two 
starts, still looks on a handy 
mark for the Alderholt Sprint 
Handicap. 


• Willie Carson rode a double 
at Turin yesterday, partnering 
the John Dunlop trained 
Rosedale to an easy success in 
the Premio Principe Amedeo, 
and Luciano d'Auria's Saint 
Samba in the Premio Royal 
Mares. The other British raider 
Smooch, trained by Kim 
Brassey, could rally finish sev- 
enth to Sain t Samba, but she 
was for from disgraced 


One achievement la this region 
.gave me particular ple asu re as it 
.embodied the true spirit of the 
sport 

On a remote hR! (arm, just 
over the Scottish, border, 
Fallalaw earns his keep round- 
ing np tiie sheep raider his 
owner, Peter Elliot During the 
hunting season be rarely misses 
a meet with the Bncdeuch and 
Jedforest Foxbomds. Come the 
spring, be takes his chance in 
local point-to-points, usually 
with Peter's wife, Rhooa, in the 
saddle. 

It took two seasons and 10 
races before Fallalaw lost his 
maiden certificate last year and 
In his next 10 races, he was only 
successful twice. He was never 
for behind, however, and his 
stamina, built ap while climbing 
the Scottish hills, came to the 
fore in the Vaux final- Coming 
from a long way back, Fallalaw 
was third at the last fence but 
finished well on SedgefiekTs 
long run-in to win by three parts 
of a length. 

The thrill for both owner and 
rider must have equalled that of 
tiie sum total of winners from 
some of the more fashionable 
yards. 

Another pleasing feature of 
the season was Alison Dare 


winning the Sporting Life tro- 
phy for tiie first time. Most 
supporters will agree that she is 
the most accomplished of all the 
lady riders bat, in previous 
years, successful forays on the 
racecourse proper have limited 
the Bomber of rides she has had, 
in point-to-points and so denied 
her of this accolade. 

Miss Dare was chased hard ; 
for the trophy by Amanda 
Harwood, a star of the future, if 
aot already, who achieved her 14 
wins on only two torses. Mike 
Felton, on the other hand, the 
numer-op to Peter GreenaU for 
the Daily Telegraph Cop, won 
on 16 different hones. 

Unfortunately for Doreen Col- 
der, hooter chases do not count 
towards the Grand Marnier 
Trophy otherwise Flying Ace, 

with his three wins in these 
events added to his six in point- 
to-points, would have equalled 
Sweet Diana's winning total. 
Perhaps the rules for this pres- 
tigious trophy could be amended 
to include hunter chases and so 
encourage the leading horses to 
“have a go” rather than domi- 
nate in minor events where they 
invariably start at long odds-on. 

Not that I have anything but 
praise for Jill Grinyer, Sweet 
Diana's rider, or Cliff Dawson, 
her owner, for the mare's bril- 
liant performances against the 
best in top class ladies’ races. 
Still only seven. Sweet Diana 
was the M iKt awting point -to- 
pointer of the season. 

The conditions for another 
prestigious trophy could also be 
adjusted. -The excellent series of 
Audi-sponsored adjacent bants 
races, which catanhtate in die 
Grand Prix de Chasae at 
Sandown Park, are primarily 
designed to attract the up-and- 
coming rather than the top 
banter chaser. 


I welcome the dose onion of 
point-to-pointing »°4 hunter 
chasing — which inddenfally 
would benefit from baring the 
same administrative committee 
of the Jockey Clnb — and 
certainly would not ban any 
horse qualified to ran in an 
adjacent hunts race from this 
eveoL 


I would, however, by a system 
of allowances and penalties 
ensure that all runners had an 
equal chance of winning. Per- 
haps the season's top hunter 
chaser. Bonier Burg, coaid be 
remembered, additionally to bis 
achievements, for the part he 
played in causing the rales to be 
changed.

The Commonwealth Games 
selection guillotine has already 
come down on some of the clue 
while others arc straining not to 
hear the roll of the tumbrils. 

Shirley Strong looked 10 base 
the best pedigree: Common- 
wealth Games high hurdics 
champion and Olympic silver 
medal winner. Bui injuries last 
year necessitated operations on 
both achillcs tendons: and al- 
though Miss Strong was given a 
reprieve after ihe women's AAA 
championships — the final trials 
for the England team 10 days 
ago. when her comeback failed 

10 extend to a place in the first 
three — she has not been able to 
improve on that form since 
then. 

Wendy JeaL who has beaten 
Miss Strong in two meetings this 
year and has a faster time, has 
been preferred in the additional 
selections announced yesterday, 
so the defending champion goes 
out before she has a chance to 
toe the starting line. 

Marea Hartman, the WAAA 
honorary secretary, said yes- 
terday: “We considered 
Shirley's position very carefully. 

11 was one of the hardest 
selection decisions that we've 
ever made but we had to take 
into account the other girls." 
Angela Pain has been chosen to 
replace the injured Sarah Rowell 
in the marathon in Edinburgh 
and the first three in the 10.000 
metres trial last Saturday. Jill 
Clarke, Marina Sarny and 
Debbie Peel, have been added to 
the team. 

The England men's match 
against United States in Gates- , 
head on Friday should resolve 
some of the final places for 
Edinburgh. Like Miss Strong. 
Ernie Obeng is being given 
another chance after an injury 
which kept him out of the first 
throe in the AAA champion- 
ships on Saturday. 

Obeng, a former Ghanaian 
who qualifies to run for England 
this year, races against Clarence 
Callender for the final 100 
metres place. Similarly. Phil 
Brown and Kriss Akabusi need 
to prove their fitness for the two 
vacant places at the 400 metres. 

In the field events Daley 
Thompson needs to beat Keith 
Stock and Jeff Guiteridge if he 
wishes to compete in the pole 
vault as well as the decathlon in 
Edinburgh. 

Steve Cram will provide the 
highlight Tor his home crowd 
when ne runs a mile for the first 
time since setting the world 
record at that distance, 3 min 
463 1 sec in Oslo 1 1 months ago. 
Cram faces Peter Ellion, who 
has been selected to partner 
Cram at 800 metres in 
Edinburgh.

Benson leads the way 
again as cautious 
Kent survive a crisis 


TENNIS: MAYOTTE DEMONSTRATES HIS THREAT WITH A WELL-BALANCED VICTORY 




SOUTHAMPTON : Kent 
. (2Ipts) beat Hampshire (6) by 
five wickets. 

Sound, studious batting 
from Mark Benson, who made 
bis second 90 in the matrh , 
steered Kent to a hard-earned 
win yesterday. Kent were left 
to make 169 in 80 overs, 
which meant that time was 
almost irrelevant On a pitch 
of uneven bounce, though, 
Kent understandably set 
about their task with the care 
. of those who tread through 
mine-fields. 

By the end Benson had 
defied the Hampshire bowlers 
for four hours and a quarter 
and carried the Kent baiting 
virtually single-handed for the 
second time. It was fitting that 
he should make the w inning 
hit, which came with an edged 
four off Smith, through the 
slips,- one of the .few uninten- 
tional strokes he made.. 

Ellison, who had bran un- - 
able to bowl earlier because of 
an ankle injury, was a stalwart 
partner for Benson through 
the tense, dosing stages. In 
mid-afternoon Kent raced a 
crisis when Andrew took three 
wickets in 22 balls and Mar- 
shall' had Aden leg before 
immediately after lea. 

Without much batting to 
come, Kent were on the reck. 
Ellison survived a difficult

before he had scored bat went 
on to _ defend dourly. The 
sixth-wicket pair put on 68 
before victory came with IS 
overs left. It was enthralling 
cricket and Kent must have 
left in good heart for 
Heathrow, where they were 
. catching the evening shuttle to 
Edinburgh for today's 
NatWest be with Scotland. 

- Kent’s - travelling plans, 
brought a 10.30am start on 
an otter grey, chilly day. 
Hampshire, resuming 139 
runs ahead, with three wickets 
left, prolonged their second 
innings a further 70 minutes. 
Alderman claim ed all three 
wickets to finish with six for 
56 and nine for 127 in the

his last four championship

aged to weather a fearsome 
second spell from Marshall 
but chopped a ball into his

ends and took his next two 
wickets with the help of Parks. 

Kent were 104 tar four from

Essex consolidate Yorkshire 
thanks to Border , 

By a. fecial Correspondent I2J1S S 1101*1 


LORD’S: Essex (20pts) beat 
Middlesex (6) by five wickets. 

Essex consolidated their po- 
sition at the lop of the Britannic 
Assurance County Champion- 
ship table with their fifth win of 
the season yesterday. They had 
to thank .Allan Bonier and his 
ability to put the pitch into 
perspective. It was not a 
batsman's paradise, but neither 
was it the “terror track” it had 
been made to appear on the first 
two days. 

The final day started with- 
Essex needing 144 to win with 
nine second innings wickets 
standing. It soon became eight . 
when, tothe 17th ball of the day, 
Gladwin fell to an excellent 
catch ax third slip by Rosebery. 

it was an even better catch by 
Edmonds in the golly — diving 
low to his right — that disposed 
of Prichard in the next Over. 
This was an nnpdrtarii,, , wdHet 
•for Middlesex to take, because 
-Prichard had- hit foree bound- : 
aries and appeared to .be in 

fluentforra. 

Daniel hereabouts was bowl- 
ing with hostility End bad the 
batsmen hopping about, not 
least Fletcher,- who suffered a 
sickening How-to Ms light hand. 
He tried to bat on, but even- 
tually had to leave the field and 
go to hospital for a precau- 
tionary X-niy. There was no 
serious damage. 

Pom, who replaced Fletcher, 
lasted only three detiverics, but

Lilley survived a "torrid start to 
bat stubbornly and effectively 
for 36 in a fifth wicket 
pannerfoip of 68 in 25 overs. 

Border, who is in a rich vein 
of runs after a slow start to his 
Essex career, was the mainstay 
of the fifth and sixth wicket 
stands. He batted in all for three 
hours and hit right . boundaries 
in his 59 not out, which took 
him past 800 first-dass runs for 
the season. He averages mare 
ihan 60 and has proved a 
worthwhile investment 

Since successive . centuries 
against Derbyshire and. Glamor- 
gan, he has passed 50 in five of 
his last eight innings. Poor 
1 Middlesex are still looking for 
their first championship win 
and win have to bat a great deal

Yorkshire 


- By Peter Mareon 

Yorkshfre needed to mate 
265 to beat NtarduuBptBBsMre 

at Wardown Park, Luton, yes- 
terday, and iu the last of many 
splendid endeavours, which had 
placed a distinctive mark on an 
excellent and entertaining 
match,.. Yorkshire did 
marvellously well to get within ; 
25 runs of victoiy. Boycott 
made 68, and Peter Hartley 54, 
but there had been a collapse in 
mid-innings, and this probably 
cost them the match as Boycott, 
Neil Hartley, Carrick and 
Bairstow fell for nine runs. 

Fine weather and a good pitch 

suggested a promising day ahead 

as Yorkshire made the first 
move by declaring 7] runs 
behind at their total overnight, 
3f4 for six. After Northampton- 
shire had readied 193 for seven. 
Northamptonshire issued, their 
challenge, 

Leicestershire's target at 
Edgbasxon had been 247 from a 
minimum of 58 overs. Potter 
was in form in a decent start, btn 
then so too, was Gifford who 
took three important wickets 
and caught a catch as Leicester- 
shire shouldered arms at 150 for 
four. Warwickshire bad begun 
at 18 for the Voss of Parsons and 
leading by 122. Humpage hit 
his way to a half century as 
Warwickshire advanced to 142- 
for five before declaring. 

With light rain felling at New 
Road, Sussex were kept hanging 
about for the first 90 minutes 
before they could begin again at 
83 for five, a lead of 185. Cblin 
Wells. Goukl -and Reeve then 
moved on by 75 nuts, the point 
at which Gould declared at 158 
for six. That left W or cest er shire 
wi th a target of 261 to win off a 
minimum of 57 overs, soon to 
become 54, as more rain felL 
Worcestershire came in for the 
last time at 102 for one. 

Cambridge's hope tad been 
that their last pair. Brown, 
whose resistance had frustrated 
Storey's bowlers before the 
dose on Monday, and David- 
son, might hold tight for just a 
little longer. Medlycott's task 
was to pot in a special effort, and 
this be did by bowling Brown. 
Cambridge followed on. 
Butcher took four far 25! as the 
University edged ahead at 160 
for seven.

No hard and fast 
rules apparent 
on outside courts 


By Richard Evans 


If conditions are supposed 
to be harder and faster at 
Wimbledon this year, il has 
not been apparent to either 
observers or players involved 
in matches on the outside 
courts. 

On Monday Vijay Amrrtraj, 
who had won the Bristol title 
two days before, suddenly 
found his fluent serve making 
very little impression on 
Wojtek Fibak and yesterday 
Tim Mayotte, winner of the 
Stella Artois tournament at 
Queen's, looked even more 
surprised on Court Two when 
Alexander Zverev, a Russian 
qualifier, acclimatized himself 
quite quickly to the power of 
his opponent's dangerous 
delivery. 

To be fair to both Fibak and 
Zverev, the quality of their 
returns must be taken into 
account, but nevertheless 
Mayotte would normally have 
exposed to make shorter work 
of a player whose top-class 
tennis has been limited largely 
to King's Cup competition 
amongst European nations. 


As it was Mayotte, who 
enjoys a wonderfully balanced 
outlook on life, won by the 
equally well-balanced score of 
6-4. 6-4, 6-4. Despite the feet 
that Sverev moved gingerly 
while losing the first four 
games of the match, Mayotte 
was never able to beat him 
into total submission, and 
even in the third set the Soviet 
player hung on to 4-4 until 
Mayotte raised his game. 

Then a fine forehand ser- 
vice return followed by a lob 
directed into Sverev's back- 
hand corner and a winning 
backhand volley revealed the 
kind of repertoire Mayotte has 
at his disposal. 

On the basis of his superb 
performance at Queen's, there 
is no doubt lhar Mayotte is 
one of half-a-dozen players 
capable of winning Wimble- 
don this year. Once he gets 
inside the stadiums he might 
find the courts a little fester 
and his own form responding 
appropriately.

Rallies through the looking glass 


Ten years ago, Chris Lloyd, 
■ then Miss Evert, played a 14- 
year-old at Wimbledon. Tracy 
Austin, with her pig-taBs and 
the brace an her t ee th, and 
overplaying the part something 
rotten by wear i n g an Alice in 
Wonderland dress, was sap- 
pressed with calm ruthlessness, 
and a. toe® ttaaakl from the 
centre coart. ■ 

Tracy Antin -has risen and 
fallen since then, bat the queenly 
Mrs Lloyd carries on. Custom 
has not felled her, and age has 
trailed her hair pare gold. 
Yesterday she had another 14- 
year-old to suppress: Mary Joe 
Fernandez, from Miami 
(wouldn't yon gness?), and she 
has (don't (hey all?) a doable- 
fisted backhand. She has a tooth 
brace, hat did not wear an Alice 
dress. She was dressed for 
business. Mrs Uoyd beat ber 
6-4, 6-1, “but she rally hit the 
ball hard," Mrs Lloyd said. 


By Simon Barnes 

“She surprised me." Miss 
Fernandez hang on and on, with 
deace after deuce, and Mrs 
Uoyd had to keep on playing. 
Martina Navratilova's match 


says, but for all that, Mra Lloyd 
most fed that the 14-year-oWs 
get younger and stronger with 
every passi n g year. She can't go 
on calmly snpiressing them for- 


The US Davis Cup captain. 
Tom Gorman, has turned down 
Jobn McEnroe's offer to play 
doubles against Mexico in Mex- 
ico City next month. 

“I was a bit disappointed,'' 
McEnroe said after a hard 
training session near 1 his home 
outside New York. "I thought it 
would be a good way to ease 
back into the competitive at- 
mosphere and contribute some- 
thing to the team, but Tom 
obviously fell ft would be wrong 
to break up the Seguso-Flacb 
combination.” 

McEnroe's surprise offer put 
Gorman in a difficult situation. 
Peter Fleming, McEnroe's regu- 
lar doubles partner, has often 
joked, rather generously, that 
the best doubles team in the 
world is McEnroe and anybody. 

However, because even 
McEnroe does not know how he 
will play after six months away 
from any competition — lei 
alone the cauldron of a Davis 


Cup tie in front of Mexican fens 
— Gorman has decided to say 
thank you and stick with Robert 
Seguso and Ken Flach, wbo 
played so well under pressure 
for him in Ecuador in March. 

McEnroe, meanwhile, is try- 
ing to adjust his mind and body 
to the idea of leaving his new- 
found season of domesticity. 

“I've still got a bit of a 
problem with my hip which 
worries me, but otherwise I have 
been working pretty hard by my 
standards." McEnroe said. He is 
a notoriously bad practice 
player, "it is really strange not 
being at Wimbledon for the first 
lime in 10 years but 1 am trying 
to set my sights on my first 
grand prix tournament in Strat- 
ton Mountain. But before that I 
have to worry about an ex- 
hibition with Lendl in Los 
Angeles at the end of July. That 
seems like rather a tough way to 
make a comeback!" 


started at the same time on the . ever. She is now 3L “but you 


court next door, but by the time 
she was showered and changed 
(and doubtless enjoying a light 
snack of broken bottles) Mrs 
'Lloyd was still swapping double- 
listers with a 14-year-old. 

At times it was like watching 
the same player at each end. 
"My game is pretty ranch 
modelled on hers,” Miss 
Fernandez said. "She’s my 
IdoL" “If I'm her idol, how come 
she plays her best against me?" 
Mra Uoyd asked. "She has sach 
composure. Some little girls 
would have cracked. She's phys- 
ically stronger than Tracy was 
when she was 14_jaod in 10 
years time you'll be seeing even 
better 14-year-olds."

Navratilova’s 
record race 
lacks sparkle ■ 

Martina Navratilova lacked 
her usual sparkle as foe sei out 
yesterday on her seemingly in- 
evitable journey’ to the Wimble- 
don women's singles final. Miss 
Navratilova beat Amanda Ding- 
wall. the Australian ranked 
92nd in the world, 6-3, 6-2, but 
surprised the centre court crowd 
by losing her service in the 
opening game and trailing 0-2. 

She found the powerful driv- 
ing of her opponent a problem 
early on and only in the last few 
games showed anything like the 
form which has earned her the 
tide for the last four years. “If I 
played my best every day," foe 
said. “I'd never lose a match. It’s 
kind of hard to do it every day, 
l»t I'm quite pleased." 

She added: “I am glad to be 
here again. I've had a really good 
preparation add 1 am feeling 
confident" Miss Navratilova 
will be 30 years old in October, 
but there will be no respite for 
her fellow competitors; foe has 
no intention of retiring. 

Her aim is to go down in 
sporting history as the greatest 
woman player of all time and to 
help her cause she is extra keen 
to win Wimbledon more times 
than anyone else. Helen Wills- 
Moody is the present record- 
holder with eight wins between 
1927 and 1938. Dorothea Lam- 
bert-Chambers won seven times 
between 1903 and 1914. 

Martina has chalked up six 
wins to date, the same as 
Blanche Hillyard. Suzanne 
Lenglen and Billie-Jean King. “I 
can't retire for at test another 
two years." Miss Navratilova 
said. “I would have to win 
Wimbledon this year and for the 
next two years after that to break 
the record and who knows what 
might happen in that time?" 

“Bui 1 feel so good right now 
that I think I could go on for 
another seven years if ! avoid 
injuries." 


Curren receives fine 


Kevin Curren, the first seeded 
casualty at Wimbledon, was also 
the firs: to be fined. The umpire, 
Roger Smith, warned last year's 
runner-up for his conduct while 
losing his fust-round match to 
the West German, Eric Jelen, on 
Monday. Yesteniay the Men's 
Professional Council imposed a 
$1,000 fine (about £660) on 
Curran. $500 for “visible 
obscenity” and S500 for verbal 
abuse. 

• Buster Mortram, the last 
Briton, apart from occasional 
bursts from John Uoyd. who 
could be considered a real threat 
on the men's international cir- 
cuit, does not regret leaving the 
tournament scene. 

At the height of his fame three 
years ago, Motuam said good- 
bye because he wanted to “get 
out of the rat race’’. At one time 
be was ranked No. 15 in the 
world and could be relied upon 
to win almost every Davis Cup 


rubber that Britain pressed him 
to play. 

Now Mottram has no regrets 
that he is no longer fighting for 
ranking points and prize money 
week by week. “I'm very happy 
doing other things” he says, 
“like playing bridge, golf, squash 
and real tennis." 

But Mottram still has British 
interests at heart — not as a 
tournament player but as an 
occasional coach. He spends 
days at Bifoam Abbey coaching 
promising youngsters in the 
hope that one day another Fred 
Perry might emerge. 

• Ivan Lendl the top seed at 
Wimbledon, is considered cold 
and uncaring. But he has six 
great friends in the United 
Slates who are devoted to him. 
“They never complain, they are 
always friendly and are com- 
pletely trustworthy," Lendl 
says. His friends aren't human, 
they are German sheep dogs.

FOOTBALL: FRENCH SEEK VENGEANCE OVER GERMANS BUT BELGIUM NEED INSPIRATION AGAINST ARGENTINA 


GOLF 


German boots 
still awaken 
nightmares in 
French flair 

From David Mfller, Mexico City 





■ r& 


'-**■* <***+•* **<**<•'■ .» 


Make no mistake, the possi- 
bility of West Germany meet- 
ing Belgium in the Woiid Cup 
Final, producing through no 
fault of their own. a sharp anti- 
climax to the competition, is 
more realistic than many 
would like to suppose. 

In today's semi-finals, the 
Germans and Belgiuras . will 
probably set out to reduce the 
effectiveness of Fiance and 
Argentina with similar tactical 
constraint as Italy did against 
France in the second round 
and England against Argenti- 
na last Sunday. Each have 
better capacity to turn theory 
into fulfillment than either 
Italv or England. 

The attitude of Franz 
Beckenbauer, the West Ger- 
man manager, is evident in 
the undercurrent of informa- 
tion from the camp at Quere- 
taro that Rolff, Hamburg's 
defensive midfield player, will 
be brought into the team with 



orders to play man-for-man 
on Platini. Since Platini has 
yet to spread his artistry across 
the canvas with broad sweeps 
even when allowed compara- 
tive individual freedom, it is 
not a happy prospect for the 
French. 

Rolff will replace Brehme, 
who will drop back to full back 
in place of the suspended 
Berthold; and as Brehme has 
experience in the back four, 
this will be a only a minor 
disadvantage to the Germans. 
Of all the teams in football, 
they are the most awesome in 
their relentlessly consistent, 
practical approach. The oppo- 
sitions can, I suspect, hear the 
coming of their boots in their 
sleep. 

France will not have forgot- 
ten the images of that eventful 
semi-final in Seville four years 
ago: of Schumacher’s gro- 
tesque challenge on Battiston, 
which laid him out cold, how 
Amoros hit die crossbar in the 
last minute of normal time,, 
how Tresor and Giresse put 
France two up in extra time, 
only for Rummenigge and 
Fischer to level the score. 1 
shall never forget how Bossis 
sank to his knees, staring 
emptily into the floodlights 
after missing France's fifth 


penalty, which allowed Hru- 
besch to slot the winner. 

If France are to avenge the 
heartbreak of those moments, 
they must erase the remnants 
of those mental scars. The fact 
that Ettori has been replaced 
in goal by Bats, and that 
Janvion, Tresor, Genghini 
and Six have given way to 
Battiston, Ayache, Fernandez 
and Stopyra has substantially 
improved the French, while 
the Germans, if not as strong, 
retain self-belief.' ' 

France seem to have be two 
doubts about their selection. 
Rocheieau is suffering from a 
slight hamstring strain, and if 
unfit will be replaced by 
Bellone. The missed chances 
of Papin in the early matches 
rule out his consideration, I 
think. The other decision for 
Henri Michel, the manager, is 
whether to recall Ayache in 
defence now that he is free of 
suspension in place of 
Tusseau, who matured into 
the more all-round player 
against Brazil. 

The doubt in Beckenbauer's 
formation concerns 
Rummenigge. Voller has ap- 
parently not recovered from 
an injury, so the Rummen- 
igge-Ailofs partnership is ex- 
pected to continue, with 
Hoeness, at 33, on the bench. 
It is in the ageing uncertainty 
of Germany's attack and the 
self-centred temperament of 
Rummenigge, that France's 
optimism should lie. For all 
their own extravagance, the 
French give little away 
defensively. 

Their profusion of penetrat- 
ing moves from midfield 
ought to overcome Germany, 
who have yet to meet one of 
the better attacking teams. I 
would have personal regrets if 
Schumacher were allowed to 
walk off the field victorious a 
second time. The Belgians, 
however, will hope for a 
German victory if they should 
win in the Azteca Stadium. 
Too clearly, they will remem- 
ber that five-goal drubbing at 
Nantes two years ago in the 
European championship — a 
performance which France 
will hope to recapture today.

With four matches left to 
play, the 1986 World Cup finals 
have already reached an all-time 
aggregate attendance record. 
According to figures provided 
by the World Cup organizing 
committee, 2,1 11,931 spectators 
have watched the 48 matches 
played so far. 2^08 more than 
the 2,109,723 registered for the 
32 matches played in Spain in 
1982. 

The record was set on Sunday 
when 43,000 people attended 
the Spain-Bdgium quarter-final 
match in Puebla. The average 
attendance at the weekend's 
four quarter-final matches was 
66,570, and for the entire tour- 
nament, 43,998, 

The oiganizing committee’s 
figures do not distinguish be- 
tween paying spectatorsand. of- 
ficials, dignitories, journalists 
and others whose entry to the 
ground is free. After the inaugu- 
ral match on May 31 between 
Bulgaria and Italy at the Aztec 
Stadium, FIFA officials told the 
Associated Press that only 
85,000 of the 95,000 crowd 
actually paid to get in. 


If the four r emaining matches 

- two semi-finals, a third-place 
play-off and the final — draw 
capacity crowds, the total atten- 
dance for the finals will be about 
2.450.000. 

• Along with the glory of win- 
ning footbalTs most coveted 
tnize, large financial bonuses are 
at stake in Mexico. 

The Brazilians were on $1,000 
(about £700) a goal per man for 
a quarter-final win over France 
by more than two goals, and 
they would have received about 
£73,000 each in accumulated 
match bonuses had they gone on 
to take the cup for a fourth time. 
As it is, they have left with about 
£24,000 eaefi some consolation 
for their defeat tv France on 
penalties. 

Team sponsorships and 
arrangements with national 
federations ensure large bonuses 
for all players of successful 
teams. FIFA pays each team 
. about £1 50,000 for every match 
played during the finals, and 
that income is used partly to pay 
bonuses to players. 


• England's Gary Lineker, the 
World Cup's most successful 
forward with six goals, and the 
dcti five leading goal-scorers are 
now all out of foe tournament. 

Emilio Butragueno, of Spain, 
and Careca, of Brazil, have 
scored five goals, and Preben 
Elkjaer, of Denmark, Sandro 
AltobeUi, of Italy, and Igor 
Belanov, of the Soviet 
Unionjiave each scored four 
times. 

The leading scorers among 
the players from the teams still 
involved in the World Cup are 
Jorge Valdano and Diego 
Maradona, both of Argentina. 

These figures illustrate that a 
team requires more than one 
outstanding forward to succeed 
in the World Cup.

Severiano- Ballesteros will 
hope to continue ms latest 
potential record-breaking se- 
quence in the Johnnie Walker ^ 
Monte Carlo Open which starts 
here on foe Mont Agd eoufse 
today. He is seeking his third 
successive victory on the Euro - 
npan tour after his triumphs in 
foeDunhill British Masters and 
foe Carrolls Irish Open. Nick 
Faldo won three in a row in 
1983, which equalled the record 
established by Peter Alliss. 

Ballesteros is also awn that 
foe first prize of almost £27.0uU 
would take his domestic earn- 
ings in 10 vrars to more than 
£940.000 and closer to his 
ambition of becoming Europe’s 
£1 million winner. “I want to 
put my name in the Guinness 
Book of Records Ballesteros 
said. “It is much harder to win a 
million in Europe than it is in 
America.” J _ £■ 

Since he is banned from 
playing on the United Slates 
PGA tour this year there must 
be every chance of Ballesteros at 
least equalling Faldo’s five vic- 
tories in 1983, which con- 
stituted a record since foe 
British PGA and Continental 
championships were first co- 
ordinated in 1970. He will be 
pressed to challenge the all-time 
European record of seven wins 
set by Norman von Nida, of 
Australia, in 1947 and equalled 
by Rory van Donck, of Bel- 
gium, in 1 953. 

Ballesteros has not finished

TOBAttD SPONSORSHIP 
GENERATES SOME STRONG 
OPINIONS. WE THINK 
THESE ARE WJR3H READING 


« Where a pursuit is lawful... there can be no 
objection in principle to the sponsorship of sport 
from any sources. 

The freedom of sport and sportspeople to 
determine these questions for themselves must be 
safeguarded. 55 

Committee of Enquiry into Sports Sponsorship 
- The Hoiveil Report. 

«F0r over 20 years, major professional golf 
tournaments have had the benefit of outstanding 
sponsorship from tobacco companies. 

We feel the game has been well served by 
tobacco, whose support is something we very 
much wish to have the opportunity and choice to 
see continuing. 55 

Ken Schofield, Executiiv Director. 

Professional Golfers Association European lour. 

« Ouraim was to ensure that sport continues toenjoy 
the.sponsorshipoftobaccocompanies, which had 
been so important to some particular sports ... I 
am satisfied that the agreements . . . have been 
successful. The cooperation, which I receive from 
all the tobacco interests, helps to ensure that both 
ihe letter and the spirit of the Government's 
voluntary agreement is upheld. 

...Everybody should understand that we 


believe in the effectiveness of the Government's 
voluntary agreement with the tobacco interests 
which sponsor sporting events. 55 

NeilMacfartane, MR 
Minister for Sport, 1981-1985. 

«The great advantage with tobacco companies is 
that they are loyal to their sports. 

When cricket was on die wane, it was tobacco 
sponsorship that revived it and brought it back 
to public attention: they did a superb job. 55 

Peter Lawson, Secretary, 

Central Council for Physical Recreation. 

« [Of tobacco sponsorship] ... It is none of the 
Government’s business to interfere in what is a 
matter of individual choice. 55 

The Deufy Telegraph Leader 


ccWe are perfectly fiappv do accept cigarette 
sponsorship because we believe in freedom of 
choice for adults. 

Besides I don't believe anybody will start 
smoking simply because a tobacco manufacturer 
has sponsored a race or rally 55 

Peter Cooper, Chief Executive, 
RAC Motor Sports Association, 


* Over 60 sports have benefited from tobacco sponsorship 
over the past 25 years. 

* Sports need sponsorship and want the freedom to be able 
to choose a sponsor 

* In 25 years there is no evidence that sponsorship has 
encouraged smoking. 

* Tobacco sponsorship is severely restricted by voluntary 
agreements, which work well and will continue to do so.

WEDNESDAY JUNE 25 1986 


Convalescent 
Cash makes 
swift recovery 


By Rex Bellamy, Tennis Corresponded 


A young lady once climbed 
the Matterhorn (by the tourist 
route, admitted, with a series 
of helpful tugs on the way) 
four days after an appendecto- 
my. This admirably bold 
achievement was .surpassed 
when, three weeks after a 
similar operation, Pat Cash 
beat Guillermo Vilas 6-4, 6-2, 
6-3 on the centre court at 
Wimbledon yesterday. Serv- 
ing tennis balls is more strenu- 
ous than being lugged up a 
mountain. 

Cash, aged 21 , is a Victorian 
but has blood lies with Chica- 
go and Wexford, which is 
uncommon among Austra- 
lians. In 1984 be reached the 
semi-finals of the Wimbledon 
and United States champion- 
ships and was regarded as the 
best player to come out of 
Australia since John 
Newcombe. Then his health 
let him down, the confidence 
drained out of him, and his 
ranking plunged. Cadi was 
granted a place in this year's 
draw only as a wild card -that 
is to say, by invitation rather 
than on merit 

Vilas, aged 33, first played 
at Wimbledon in 1 970 but has 
never gone further lion the 
quarter-finals (I97S and 
1 976). His best t ennis on grass 
has been played in Australia 
but all things considered, it 
seems reasonable to suggest 
that yesterday's match reflect- 
ed more credit on the conva- 
lescent than it did on the poet 
of the Pampas. 

There were hints of another 
sickness-to-success story be- 
fore Joakim Nystrom, seeded 
sixth, came through in five 
sets against Kelly Evernden, a 
New Zealander who lives in 
New South Wales. Evernden 
had just won the New Zealand 
junior championship when he 
was hit by a car. Twice in five 
days, his heart stopped. He 
broke an arm and a log. plus a 
few ribs. A punctured lung was 
eventually removed. Aged 24, 
Evernden is now a Davis Cup 
player in bis second full year 
on the international circuit. 
He came back from two sets 
down to take Nystrom to a 
fifth. But in tennis as in the 
rest of life, the fairy-tale 
finishes seldom happen. 

A steward barred me from 
court 14 because “there are 
too many Press here already”. 


Never mind. I have been 
hatred from better places than 
that. The object of the exercise 
was to find out how Anders 
Jarryd, seeded eighth, was 
coping with Bill Scanlon. 
Jarryd reached the semi-finals 
last year but Scanlon has the 
more consistent Wimbledon 
record. Last year Scanlon had 
a bad knee. He appeared in the 
draw only as a “lucky loser”, 
which is to say that he did not 
even qualify. But he remains a

This was one of those days 
when many of the players on 
court were deficient in class 
compared with some of the ex- 
players watching them. This 
was evident, for example, on 
court nine when Hansjorg 
Schwaier resumed his match 
with Marceto Ingaramo — 
suspended overnight when 
Schwaier, having saved two 
match points, still had to save 
a third because he was serving 
at 5-6 and 30-40 down in the 
fifth set. That is no kind of 
situation. in which to gp back 
to work. Schwaier did not 
welcome it. His wickedly 
amused supporters did. But 
Schwaier had the last laugh. 
He won. 

Custer (Brett), an Austra- 
lian qualifier, made his last 
stand but went the same way 
as die other Custer - in this 
case, against Johan Kriek, 
who is still recovering from 
the shock of reaching the 
French semi-finals on an alien 
surface. 

Ramesh Krishnan beat 
Francisco Madel, who has the 
handsomely rumpled looks of 
an Irish boxer. They were fun 
to watch from the Press 
balcony overlooking court 
seven, though I bad only a 
sparrow for company (it is 
awfully difficult for sparrows 
to find a peaceful perch during 
the championships). Later, at 


Krishnan. He makes tennis 
look so easy. He is like the 
cream on the strawberries.'". . 

Another engaging spectacle, 
for different reasons, was that 
of Mike Bauer, a virile and 
charming American with Ger- 
man parents, beating Chris- 
tian Saceanu, aged 18, last 
year’s German junior champi- 
on. There are not a lot of 
Germans called Saceanu. This 
one comes from a German- 
speaking province of Romar 
nia but now lives near 
Dussddorf His father is a 
doctor, a brain specialist . 

The interesting thing about 
Saceanu was his service ac- 
tion, an abrupt vertical take- 
off that raised images of Peter 
Pan being jerked off the floor 
for the flying act Saceanu was 
sometimes foot-faulted. Now 
how do you foot-fault a man 
who is so spectacularly air- 
borne that he might have 
come off a launching pad? 

One of the perks of being 
chairman of the champion- 
ships, as “Buzzer” 
Hadingham is, is that you may 
get to sit on the front row of 
the royal box with an attrac- 
tive redhead whose surname, 
until this year, was chiefly 
associated with tractors and 
television sets. They were 
watching Martina 

Navratilova beat Amanda 
Dingwall (nee Tobin), an Aus- 
tralian who was dismissed 
from the French champion- 
ships withchxl even winning a 
game but, like most Austra- 
lians, is much more at home 
on grass. 

I have always contended 
that the best day for newcom- 
ers to savour Wimbledon is on 
the second day, when there are 
good matches all over the 
place and the crowds are not 
sufficiently packed to inhibit 
free movement Thus it was 
yesterday. The weather was 
mostly benign, the roses be- 
tween the members' enclosure 
and court five were blooming 
beautifully, and one could 
enjoy the ambience of the 
championships without being 
unduly disturbed by the out- 
bursts of gasping violence that 
punctuated the players’ medi- 
tative pauses. And that com- 
panionable sparrow, on the 
balcony at court seven, evi- 
dently found Krishnan much 
to his taste. 


court level, a Belgian journal- 
ist told me: “I like watching 

Court where Britons reign 


Anyone suggesting that 
Britain's men would go down 
like the price of strawberries 
during the opening round of 
Wimbledon should have been 
sent to court six these past two 
days. There, after Andrew 
Castle’s victory over an oppo- 
nent ranked way above him 
on Monday, Nick Fulwood 
stood his ground yesterday in 
an absorbing encounter with 
an American who has been 
rising fast. 

Brad Pearce has found his 
way into the world's top 200 
for the first time but Fulwood 
put a stop to his progress with 
a 7-6, 6-7, 6-2, 7-6 victory in 
three hours and 43 minutes, 
the longest match of the 
tournament up to yesterday 
evening. The contrast between 
the two was extreme: on the 
one side of the net was the tall 
silent one from Derbyshire, on 
the other side the shrieking 


Coghlan’s 

warning 

Eamonn Coghlan's decision 
to run in the 5,000 metres in 
the Ulster Games in Belfast on 
Monday may come as a 
surprise to Steve Ovett and 
Dave Lewis, who. will be 
having a private battle for the 
vacant third 5,000m place in 
the England team for the 
Commonwealth Games. 

Coghlan won the world 
5,000m title in 1983 and after 
missing two seasons with 
stress fracture injuries is now 
regaining his best fonn. He 
said yesterday: “I was first told 
there would be a 3,000m race. 

I was later informed that the. 
3,000m had been scrapped 
and a 5,000m race put in its 
place to suit Steve Ovett. I am 
not happy with the way I have 
been treated but 1 will be 
running in Belfast all the 
same.” 

Gates decline 

Although Widnes Rugby 
League dub sold their interna- 
tional back, Joe Lydon, to 
Wigan for a record £100,000 
fee. they made a loss of nearly 
£14,000 last season, following 
a deficit of nearly £5,000 the 
previous year, widnes, who 
averaged one trophy a season 
in the 1970s and early 1980s. 
have been hit by a decline in 
gates.

hulk from Utah; the measured 
lobs of the outsider against the 
daring passing shots of his 
opponent. 

When the second set pro- 
duced eight breaks of service, 
it seemed more to the credit of 
the American. Shorter by at 
least three inches he had less 
height to dominate the net and 
was justly rewarded with the 
set for his labours. But 
Fulwood would not be flus- 
tered 

One's first impression as the 
two walked on court was that 
they had shared a kit bag in 
the dressing room and could 
not agree on who should wear 
which outfit. So they compro- 
mised. The red trim on 
Ful wood’s shoes matched pre- 
cisely the band round Pearce's 
shirt while the markings of the 
American's footwear were of 
the same blue highlighting the 
Briton’s attire. 


SPORT IN BRIEF 



Coghlan: ’Unfair treatment’ 

New coach 

The new England men’s 
basketball coach is David 
Tiunuss, from Hemel Hemp- 
stead, who has been in charge 
of the Uxbridge club. Titmuss, 
aged 40, was voted Coach of 
the Year last season. He 
succeeds Bill Berwick, who is 
retiring. 


Although service breaks 
were a feature of the match, 
the British No.6 dug in when 
he most needed to. He saved a 
set point on his own service at 
5-6 in the fourth set but went 
on to dominate the tie-break 
as he had done in the first set 

While Pearce has legs that 
look as if they are made to 
order — for weight lifting — 
Fulwood’s physique looks 
more designed for high-jump- 
ing 

Two British players went 
down in five sets after leading 
most notably John Lloyd.' The 
British No.l was ahead two 
sets to love and playing excep- 
tionally well when his oppo- 
nents, Christo Steyn, of South 
Africa, discovered wfaal a 
good service can do on grass. 
With a barrage of aces he 
forced his way back to win 3-6, 
2-6, 6-3, 6-3, 6-1. 


Swedish dates 

England's international 
football match against Sweden 
on September 10 will be 
played at the Raasu nd a Stadi- 
um, Stockholm (kick-off 7pm 
local time). The Under-21 
match on September 9 will be 
staged at Oestersund, 600 
kilometres north of Stock- 
holm (5.0). 


Langley move 

Everton Football Club have 
agreed a fee of £100,000 for 
wjgan Athletic's promising 
midfield player, Kevin Lang- 
ley. Langley, aged 21, will sign 
on his return from holiday in 
Portugal. Last season Everton 
signed the Wigan forward, 
Warren Aspinafl, for a similar 
fee. 


Wright back ^rmetest 


Mark Wright, the South- 
ampton defender who was 
ruled out of England’s World 
Cup campaign in Mexico be- 
cause of a broken leg. will 
probably be ready for his club 
at the start of the new football 
season. Wright turned down 
an invitation from the En- 
gland manager, Bobby Rob- 
son, to link up with the squad 
in Mexico, preferring to spend 
the summer working his way 
back to full fitness. 


Joe Johnson, the world 
snooker champion, Stephen 
Hendry, the Scottish champi- 
on, and Liverpool's John Par- 
rott are three newcomers in 
the eight-man field for the 
Langs Supreme Masters tour- 
nament at the Hospitality Inn, 
Glasgow, from September 18 
to 21. They join the holder, 
CliffThorbum, former winner 
Jimmy White, Tony Knowles, 
Kirk Stevens and Alex Higgins 
in the first major tournament 
of the 1986-87 season.

The sun goes 
down for the 
son of Ireland 


There is 

the fifteenth (above) 



It was sprite dear from the 
welter of questions 
asked abort the downfall 
Barry McGrigan at Caesars 
Palace here yesterday that it 
- was art jost doe to the fists of 
Steve Cruz, of Forth Worth, 
Texas — though he had not a 
fittie to do with it - but to 
severe! contributory factors, 
utt least of which was tbe 110- 
degree beat at six o’clock in 

the evening. 

Bit the ooe overriding cause 
of the demise of Ireland's 
World Boxing Association 
featherweight champion was 
the belief in his camp that he 
was mdestructible. And those 
of as who were part of the 
ramp mot share in the Name 
far readily accepting that be- 
lief and pnUidzhig it. 

How casually we all treated 
the son as, sitting by the 
s w immin g pool of Caesars, we 
listened to plans being made 
for his next two contests and 
beyond. It was so pleasant 
sitting in the am watching the 
swimmers splashing about. 

Ireland’s hero 
melts away 

Day after day we were tokL 
“Oh, don’t worry abort the 
heat Barry’s been training in 
120 degrees in Palm Springs. 
He fast loves the heat** No 
one ttagM fora m oment that 
if there is arthrag new ander 
the sbb there is nothing inde- 
stractiMe under it It was the 
sbb more than Graz that 
destroyed Ireland's hero. 

After the contest McGnigan 
was taken away to Valley 
Hospital in an ambulance with 
severe exhaustion and bead- 
ache. He was later given a 
brain scan and kept in far 
observation. Reports from the 
hospital later In dm evening 
said he was comfortable and 
back to his old self. 

It was smprimng to hear his 
manager, BJ. Eastwood, say- 
mg that it was not the heat bed 
a “sucker punch” in the tenth 
round that heat McGnigan. 
Eastwood seems to have over- 
looked the scorecards which 
show that three points were 
deducted by two of the judges 
and two points by me in the 
last roaod, when McGnigan 
was floppieg abort from one 
end of toe ring to (he other mid

would have won comfortably.

boxed smartly throughout 
never allowing McGnigan to 
raffle hfa and conserved^ his 
energy, his exertions 

down to neat countess-punching 
while McGuigaa did the bard 
work, and picked up the 
prints. Craz, though trailing, 
was doing damage. 

By the fifth round 
McGnigan had hit Cruz with 
devastating blows to head and 
body that in the past would 
have put away better men than 
the Mexkan-Amerkan. Craz 
shook his head and came on as

His trainer. Papa Joe 

Barrientos, said afterwards: “l 
told Stevie to back away from 
McGnigan and lead him into, 
the sen and let the son Wind 
him.” That is what happened 
in the sixth when McGnigan 
was rocked by a little left hook 
beantf felly placed and 
McGnigan had to hold. It 
happened a gain in the tenth. 
Craz spun out of a corner and 
curled in a left hook. This time 
McGnigan was dropped, ft 
happened with the help of the 
sun. 

Champion resorts 
to low blows 

Though McGnigan had 
dominated the first five 
rounds, the contest turned 
round in the fifth when 
McGnigan was caught by 
three quick jabs and forced to 
gp backwards. That was when 
Graz realized that the Irish- 
man was not invincible. 
McGnigan was m trouble 
again in the sixth; and in the 
seventh Craz, emboldened by 
his success m the sixth and 
urged on by his delighted 
corner, outmanoeuvred and 
outboxed him, so much so that. 
McGnigan had to resort to a 
low Mow. 

McGufaan won the eighth 
and the ninth, was knocked 
down in the tenth, drew the 
eleventh, lost the twelfth on 
tiie ded u ction and on my card 
drew the thirteenth. Bat 
though he won the fourteenth, 
there was nothing left in him. 

It is unlikely that 
McGvban will ever be the 
same. As Eastwood said: "It's 
going to be hard to lift him and 
very hard for him to come 
again.”

Shilton hands it 
to Maradona 


The England team returned 
home yesterday after .their 
controversial defeat at the 
hands of Argentina and the 
hand of Diego Maradona. The 
party, without their manager, 
Bobby Robson, and the de- 
fender Terry Fenwick, arrived 
at Heathrow from Miami and 
expressed disappointment at 
the way in which they failed to 
secure a semi-final place. 

Don Howe, the coach, said: 
“It was very disappointing to 
be knocked out in that way. 
Bat the referee is only human 
and he made a mistake like 
anybody else. Maradona is a 
genius.” 

Peter ShOtoo, who had the 
closest look at the controver- 
sial goal by the man regarded 
as tiie world’s greatest player, 
said: “Maradona’s second 
goal was tremendous. He rim- 
ply came through, beat a 
couple of players and it was a 
great goal. But as for the first 
one, it was a little bit dibtoos 
to say the least That started 
him off He hadn't done a lot 
until then. 

“We're fast a Gttte bit ride 
we've had to come home early. 
It's been a happy World Cup 
in some ways and we seem to 
have been able to put England 
bad: on the football map.” 

Bryan Robson, tin captain, 
who was ruled out of the later 
mah-htte through a shoulder 
injury, said: “We fought back 
well in that game — a toe of 
teams would have crumbled at 
2-4 down.” 

Gary Lineker, who scored 
six goals including three 
against Poland, looks set to 



win the Golden Boot award as 
the tournament’s highest scor- 
er. Asked about the chance he 
had to equalize in the dying 
moments, Lineker said: “I still 
don't quite know how it didn’t 
go in. It's fast unfortunate. I 
now fancy Argentina to win 
the World Cap became of 
Maradona.” 

The sports minister, Dick 
Tracey, greeted the team at 
Heathrow. He sari: “They did 
extremely wefl and left a great 
impression in Mexico. The 
people were sorry to see them 
go and the reports abort the 
behaviour of oar fans oat there 
have been very good.” 

• Bobby Robson's “reward” 
for leading England to the 
quarter-finals will be an ex- 
tended contract, probably 
through to the World Cup 
finals in Italy in 1990. “Sack 
him! Don't be daft As far as 
I'm concerned, he’s done a 
‘ job, and can stay on as 
j as he likes,” Dick Wragg, 
the International Committee 
chan-man, said. “It wasn't his 
fault we were robbed of a semi- 
final chance. He’D see ms 
through tbe European Cham- 
pionships and probably the 
next World Cup, too.”

CRICKET 


Test men return to ranks 


Cricket's underdogs have 
their day today, when 13 
minor counties as well as 
Scotland and Ireland take on 
first-class opposition in the 
first round of the NatWest 
Trophy. In the remaining tie 
Northamptonshire entertain 
Middlesex at Northampton, 
where the best contest may be 
expected. 

Middlesex, who have been 
badly out of sorts of late, are 
reinforced by tbe return of 
their Test players, including

YACHTING 


From favourite to fortunate 

From ferry Pkkthall, Newport, Rhode Island 


Apricot, the 60fi British 
trimaran, set out from Plym- 
outh on June 8 as favourite to 
win the Carfsberg two-handed 
transatlantic race, but when 
sheanived here on Monday to 
take third place overall, skip- 
per Tony BtiUimore and Wri- 
ter Greene, his American 
partner, were perhaps lucky to 
reach Newport at all, let alone 
win Class IL 

When the pair limped 
across the Bren ton Tower 
finish line at 1.44 pm, having 
taken 15 days 6 hours and 44 
minutes to complete the 3,000 


mile crossing. Apricot's 
daggerboard had got a jagged 
stump following a collision 
with' a whale and every avail- 
able piece of cord was em- 
ployed to string the mainsail 
up. 

Their problems began on 
the first day out when the 
mainsail slides holding the sail 
to Apricot's wing mast started 
breaking. Each time — and it 
happened on 16 occasions 
during the voyage — the two 
lost half an hourpufring down 
the sail to make repairs. 

Eight days out, foe trimaran 


collided with a whale. **Wv

Robert Nickerson and Jeff : -

Newport, have reported seri- 
ous structural and riggine 
damage to their 60ft monohull 
Oierry Valley Superduci, but 
plan to continue towards the 
finish.
