The British Government 
yesterday summoned the 
South African Ambassador to 
the Foreign Office to protest 
about the widespread arrests 
. and detentions under the state 
of emergency declared by 
President Botha on June 12. 

The same message was de- 
livered in Pretoria by a senior 
British Embassy official who 
called at the Ministry of 
Foreign Affairs. 

On the eve of the EEC 
summit in The Hague, which 
will discuss Community mea- 
sures against the Pretoria re- 
gime, Dr Denis Worrall. the 
South African Ambassador in 
London, was unexpectedly 
called to the Foreign Office to 
be told that Britain deplored 
the restrictions, including 
those on the foreign press, 
imposed under the state of 
emergency, and the detentions 
of community, church and 
trade union leaders. 

The move, based on infor- 
mal ion about the effects of the 
state of emergency reported 
back by the British Embassy, 
was another sign of the 
Government’s preference for 
strong diplomatic pressure 
against South Africa, as op- 
posed to economic sanctions 
which would damge the South

eign Secretary, at The Hague

Officials were offering few 
details of the measures that 
the Government will willingly 
go along with, emphasizing 
instead the need for "positive” 
measures paving the way to- 
wards negotiations for an end 
to apartheid and an end to 
violence. 


The Prime Minister has 
little enthusiasm for two of the 
most likely measures — a ban 
on new investment and on the 
import of South African fruit 
and vegetables — but her close 
colleagues believe that she will 
not go to the stake in opposing 
them. 

She would put up much 
sterner resistance to a ban on 
air flights to South Africa, and 
would clearly much prefer the 
measures to be limited to a 
diplomatic mission to Pre- 
toria led by the Foreign Secre- 
tary and an EEC-ftnanced 
programme to assist the edu- 
cation of black South 
Africans.

leading the way in the most 
effective way possible to bring 
about an end to apartheid.

Africans threaten 
to 



games 

By John Goodbody, Sports Correspondent 


Black African nations yes- 
terday took the first steps to 
ban the athlete Zola Budd and 
the swimmer Annette Cowley 
from next month's Common- 
wealth Games in Edinbuigh. 
They made it clear that if the 
two women did take part there 
could be a black boycott of the 
games. 

Both women were bom in 
South Africa but hold British 
passports and have been se- 
lected to represent England . 

Mr David Dixon Secretary 
of the Commonwealth Games 
Federation, said yesterday 
that Nigeria had asked the 
federation’s officers to investi- 
gate the eligibility of Miss 
Budd and Miss Cowley. Zim- 
babwe has also written to the 
South African Non Racial 
Olympic Committee (Sanroc) 
supporting the Nigerian de- 
mand . 

Mr Sam Ramsamy of 
Sanroc. said yesterday that if 
the federation did not stop the 
two women from 
competing.the Black African 
nations would consider pull- 
ing out of the games. "We will 
have a meeting and abide by 
the majority decision” he said. 

Mr Dixon said the inquiry 
had already begun and the 
decision would be made by the 
federation's seven officers. "It 
is not an easy matter and there 
is a further problem of time 
and expense." he said. 


The officers have to pass 
judgment because the next 
assembly meeting of the feder- 
ation is not until July 27. three 
days after the Queen opens the 
games. 

Sir Arthur Gold, chairman 
of the Commonwealth Games 
Council for England, con- 
firmed yesterday that a report 
of legal opinion on the inter- 
pretation of the eligibility rule 
was being prepared for the 
federation. “We have accept- 
ed the legal opinion given to 
the Women's Amateur Athlet- 
ics .Association and the Ama- 
teur Swimming Association 
that both conform to the 
requirements for eligibility." 

The implication of a boy- 
cott by some African nations if 
the federation’s officers do not 
satisfy* their wishes is a threat 
that they have carried out in 
similar circumstances in the 
past. 

The 15 African nations who 
will provide 493 out of the 
total of 3.210 competitors in 
the games, would be sorely 
missed in track athletics and 
boxing. 

The issue is also difficult 
legally because, as Mr Dick 
Palmer, the Secretary of the 
English council, has conceded, 
the eligibility clause, article 34 
in the Commonwealth Games 
Federation constitution, is so 
vague as to need rewriting to 
make it less ambiguous. 


Pretoria 
issues 
threat 
to press 

From Michael Hornsby 
Johannesburg 

The South African Govern- 
ment yesterday served notice 
on both the local and foreign 
press that tough action woold 
be taken against newspapers, 
or any other media organiza- 
tions. flouting die emergency 
regulations in force since Jane 
12 . 

Editors of South African 
newspapers were summoned 
from all over the country to a 
meeting in Pretoria with Mr 
Louis NeL the Deputy Minis- 
ter of Information, who told 
them that the Government 
would suspend the publication 
of offending newspapers if 
they failed “to toe the line”. 

At a separate meeting, Mr 
Nel, who is the minister in 
charge of the press, told 

Boesak hint 7 

Sanctions pressure 7 
Ronald Butt 14 

foreign correspondents here 
that the Government did not 
want confrontation, but would 
"not hesitate to take whatever 
steps we deem necessary to 
ensure, as far as it is in our 
power, compliance with the 
state of emergency 
regulations”. 

The warnings to the press 
came a day after Mrs Helen 
Suzman, the country's longest- 
serving opposition MP, told 
Parliament that South Africa 
was getting "erer closer to 
becoming a total police state” 
and was beginning to resemble 
cmmtries like "El Salvador 
and Argentina, where thou- 
sands upon thousands of peo- 
ple go missing and the 
government refuses to give any 
indication of where those peo- 
ple are”. 

Meanwhile, a leading trade 
unionist came out of hiding 
briefly to issue a warning that 
the detention of labour leaders 
threatened to create "a situa- 
tion of total anarchy in 
industry”, and Mr Denis 
Healey, the British Labour 
Party's foreign affairs spokes- 
man. had a meeting with Mrs 
Wiorie Mandela.- the wife of 
Mr Nelson Mandela, the 
jailed African National Con- 
gress (ANC) leader. 

Also yesterday, the re-open- 
ing of black schools — which 
went on holiday at the begin- 
ning of June - was postponed 
for two weeks, until July 14, to 
enable "plans of action” for 
"effective education” to be pat 
into operation. 

In his meeting Wfth foreign 
journalists, Mr Nel denied 
there was censorship. He then 
provided 3 new definition of 
the term — "To me censorship 
means that every report must 
be approved before it can be 
published. We do not have 
censorship. What we have is a

Four life terms for Leoni’s killer 


By a Staff Reporter 

Unemployed labourer Gary 
Hopkins was sentenced yester- 
day to four terms of life 
imprisonment for murdering 
three-year-old Leoni Keating 
after kidnapping her from a 
caravan in Great Yarmouth 
last September, subjecting her 
to a night of sexual terror and 
flinging her. arms lied behind 
her back, into a drainage 
channel to drown. 

The judge told Hopkins, 
aged 28. of Severn Way. 
Bedford, that he had showed 
"a degree of callousness and 
depravity which is almost 
unbelievable.” He recom- 


mended that he should serve a 
minimum of 25 years. 

It took the jury at Ipswich 
Crown Court just over two 
hours to find Hopkins guilty 
and he began his sentence in 
solitary confinement Hop- 
kins had earlier admitted ab- 
ducting Leoni from the 
caravan site where she was 
staying with her mother, Mrs 
Gail Keating, on a week's 
holiday for battered wives. 

He had also pleaded guilty 
before the jury was sworn in 
on Monday to abducting two 
other young girls, burglary and 
wounding. 

Hopkins, a formerly mar- 


ried man with two children, 
had first been in trouble for 
exposing himself to young 
girts when he was 14. 

His obsession with kidnap- 
ping young girts had led to a 
three-year pattern of abduct- 
ing children from caravans. 
One girl, aged IO. was later left 
gagged with a pair of knickers 
2 nd another kidnap victim, 
aged 14. was stabbed as she 
escaped from Hopkins. 

After the trial. Leoni’s 
mother said: “This is.the end I 
have been waiting for. Now 1 
can stan living again and 
rebuilding my other daugh- 
ters life ” Report, page 3 





By Philip Webster, Chief Political Correspondent 
Mr Peter Walker, the Secre- pressing ahead with a speedy 


tary of State for Energy, is to 
enter the growing political 
debate over nuclear power 
today by delivering one of the 
strongest declarations yet of 
government commitment to 
the nuclear industry. 

With the main opposition 
parties moving towards poli- 
cies of reducing reliance on 
nuclear power, Mr Walker is 
expected to argue against 
adopting expedient solutions 
for the sake of short-term 
popularity in response to the 
public reaction of horror to 
the Chernobyl disaster. 

His message will, however, 
be seen as being directed 
equally at some of his col- 
leagues in ihe Cabinet who 
have voiced doubts about

Prince Andrew and Miss Sarah Ferguson, at the Belfast City Hospital yesterday during a 
surprise 24-hour visit to Northern Ireland 

Ulster 
warms 
to royal 
couple 

From Richard Ford 
Belfast 

Hundreds of police and 5AS 
men guarded Prince Andrew 
and his fiancee. Miss Sarah 
Ferguson, yesterday as they 
carried out a series of engage- 
ments on a 24-boor visit to 
Northern Ireland one month 
before their wedding a West- 
minster Abbey. 

The trip was a dosely 
guarded secret until the conple 
arrived at RAF Aldergrove 
just before liam and at every 
engagement armed guards 
prorected them. 

Tliey travelled to five en- 
gagements across the province 
by helicopter to spend as little 
time as possible travelling by 
road, minimizing the danger of 
any terrorist attack. 

It was the Prince's second 
visit to the province — be was 
with the Qaeen on her Jubilee 
tour in 1977 — bat for Miss 
Ferguson it was her first 
outing to the North and it 
came only 24 hours after the 
Reverend Ian Paisley, leader 
of the Democratic Unionist 
party, claimed that the prov- 
ince was on the verge of civil 
war. 

But there was no sign of 
tension on the streets. 

However, as the couple ar- 
rived for their first engage- 
ment — the official opening of 
the £72 million tower block at 
Belfast City Hospital — police 
marksmen in boiler suits were 
on top of the surrounding 
buildings while others with 
binnocnJars scanned crowds of 
nurses, doctors and hospital 
staff awaiting their arrival. 

For much of the visit all eyes 
and interest were on Miss 
Ferguson, with women 
screaming "Fergie. Fergii 
let's look at the ring”. 

Miss Ferguson was dressed 
in nautical style befitting the 
couple's last engagement, 
watching the Edinburgh Cup 
Yacht Race at Killyleagh, Co 
Down. 

She wore, a French navy 
skirt witlf white fitted jacket 
and white polo neck blouse 
and in her ginger hair she had 
a huge navy and white bow. 

The couple were in a relaxed 
mood, frequently having pri- 
vate signs with each other as 
they toured the hospital, see- 
ing patients in surgical and 
physiotherapy wards while 
women strained to catch a 
glimpse of Miss Ferguson's 
ruby and diamond engagement 
ring. 

Later 2.000 school children 
greeted them at the Antrim 
forum for the annual sports 
day of the Royal Ulster Con- 
stabulary. They then went to 
Hillsborough Castle for a 
garden party attended by 
1,200 people. 



Mr Peter Walker keynote 
speech on nuclear powzr 


Mr Walker is ihought likely 
to contend that world energy 
needs in the coming decades 
cannot be met without a 
substantial contribution from 
nuclear power, and to say that 
Britain must be ready to win a 
share of the inevitably grow- 
ing world nuclear energy 
industry. 

Mr Walker is to make his 
keynote speech to the Engi- 
neering Employers’ Federa- 
tion. He has told nis 
colleagues that he regards it as 
one of the most important he 
will ever make and has spent 
some weeks preparing it. 

He will take :he view' that 
the worlds known finite 
sources of energy will run out 
in the next century, and will 
emphasize the need to in- 
crease research on alternative 
forms of energy . He will add. 
however, that all the most 
promising sources of renew- 
able energy supplies - solar, 
wind and tidal energy includ- 
ed - could meet only a small 
proportion of the increased 
demand next century, let 
alone present demand. 

Mr Walker's speech is likely 
to be seen by his colleagues as 
the opening shot in his battle 
to win approval in the Cabinet 
for the Sizcwe!! B reactor. 


From Ian Murray 
Jerusalem 

Mr Avraham Shalom, head 
of Shin But, Israel’s counter 
intelligence agency, resigned 
yesterday and was granted an 
immediate presidential pardon 
for any crimes he may have 
committed two years ago. after 
two captured Palestinian bus 
hijackers were handed over to 
the agency. 

The amnesty, which has 
been extended to senior un- 
named officers who have not 
resigned, has made it impassi- 
ble fur Mr Yosef Harish, the 
new Attorney Ceneral. to 
launch a meaningful police or 
judicial enquiry, even though 
he legally has the right to do 
so. 

It will also mean an end to 
any investigation into ihe roles 
played by Mr Shimon Peres 
and Mr Yitzhak Shamir, who 
have been the two Prime 
Ministers responsible for Shin 
Bet since the hijacking. 

At a meeting with the most 
senior members of the govern- 
ment Mr Harish said it was 
impossible for him to stop the 
police enqniry into the affair, 
w hich had been ordered by his 
predecessor. Mr Yitzhak 
Zamir. Since, however, it 
might be difficult to maintain 
tbe secrecy of such an investi- 
gation, he was prepared to set 
up a judicial enquiry. 

It was at this point that Mr 
Shalom, who had been called 
to the meeting, offered his 
resignation and Mr Yitzhak 
Moda’i. the Justice Minister, 
paid a midnight cal! to the 
presidential palace to be prom- 
ised hy President Herzog that 
the Shin Bet men would be 
given an amnesty. 

Mr Harish said he was very 
disappointed at the outcome, 
hut conceded there would be 
no point in launching an 
enquiry when there was no 
way of prosecuting anyone 
once the evidence was collect- 
ed. The most he was able to 
obtain from the cabinet was 
agreement on a new special 
committee to set up future 
procedures for the way Shin 
Set vperafML' - 

j The only legs! process on 
j the case still continuing is the 
i hearing before the High Court 
of an appeal against unfair 
dismissal by Mr Rafi Malka.s 
former senior Shin Bet officer 
who was forced to leave the 
service after telling Mr Peres 
(hat the two Palestinians died 
on the orders of Mr Shalom, 
who then masterminded a 
cover-up. That case, being 
heard in secret, has been 
opened but adjourned. 

There are four no confidence 
motions tabled in the Knesset 
hy small left wing parties over 
the government’s handling of 
the case. 3ut it was clear 
yesterday evening that a ma- 
jority of Knesset members 
were only too glad a way had 
been found to avoid the proper 
enquiry at this stage.

Monopoly control looms for too-high salt prices 


By Derek Harris 
Industrial Editor 
Price controls on salt were 
recommended yesterday by 
ihe Monopolies and Mergers 
Commission after it found a 
monopoly involving ICI and 
British Salt, part of Staveley 
Industries, was against ibe 
public interest. Prices have 
been higher than they would 
have been with effective com- 
petition, the Commission 
decided. 

British Salt, a lower-cost 
and hence more efficient pro- 
ducer than ICI. had chosen to 
follow price rises brought in 


by ICI despite "significant” 
cost differences between the 
two companies, the Commis- 
sion said in its report* after an 
investigation lasting iwo-and- 
a-half yearsu 

British Salt accounts for half 
the market in salt which has 
wide industrial uses as well as 
8 per ccni of it being packed by 
other companies for table and 
cooking use. ICI accounts for 
45 per cent of the market. 

The food processing indus- 
try accounts for 14 per cent of 
salt produced, animal feed- 
stuff* 8 per cent and water 
softening 5 per cent, while 


industrial uses include the 
production of caustic soda and 
various chemicals as well as 
treatment for roads in winter. 
Salt exports account for 18 per 
cent of production. 

Both ICI and British Salt 
mine their salt supplies in 
Cheshire. Sail for table and 
cooking use is sold on to a 
wide variety of companies but 
the market leader is Ranks 
Hovis McDougalJ with its 
main brands or Cerebos and 
Saxa. 

Mr Brian Kent- group man- 
aging director for Staveley 


Industries, said he did not 
expect new controls to have 
any impact on prices of table 
and cooking salt on the super- 
market shelves because the 
biggest costs involved in this 
sector were those like 
promotion. 

The Commission recom- 
mended a price-control sys- 
tem which would be an 
incentive to improve efficien- 
c\. A weighted index of pro- 
duction costs could be applied 
only to British Salt, so ensur- 
ing no competitor could raise 
prices above the British Sait 
level without jeopardizing its 


market share, the Commis- 
sion suggested. 

The Government has ac- 
cepted the findings and Sir 
Gordon Borrie, director-gen- 
eral of the Office of Fair 
Trading, is to ask for under- 
lakings from British Salt on 
limiting prices in accordance 
with an index. 

The procedure for deter- 
mining prices in the industry 
did not amount Lo collusion, 
the Commission decided.

Spending cuts 
put forces 
under threat, 
MPs say 


By Richard Enos, Political Correspondent 


The operational capability 
of Britain's armed forces is 
under threat because of large 
cuts in defence spending over 
the next three years, an all- 
party Commons report said 
yesterday. 

While the Ministry of De- 
fence has attempted to cloud 
the fun scale of cash cuts, the 
defence Select Committee 
says that those could total 
7 per cent in real terras by 
1988-89. excluding spending 
on the Falklands. 

The MPs say the main 
source of economies will be 
the equipment budget and add 
that Mr George Younger, 
Secretary of State for Defence, 
win have to make “painful" 
decisions. 

“We note that this reduc- 
tion in defence expenditure 
comes at a time when, in the 
view of the Secretary of State, 
the threat to our security is no 
less than it was, and in some 
respects (is) greater,” they add. 

The Select Committee says 
that improved management of 
the defence budget, combined 
with improved efficiency, win 
not avoid consequent cuts or 
delays, affecting equipment in 
particular. 

“There is a risk of an 
adverse effect on operational 
capability, but not in itself 
amounting to the ending of a 
major role or commitment 


will 

on 


Any further economies 
have a direct effect 
capability", it says. 

The about-turn m defence 
spending comes after an 
18 per cent increase in real 
terms between 1979-80 and 
1984-85, when equipment ex- 
penditure increasing by 36 per 
cent 

The strain on the defence 
budget is likely to be exacer- 
bated by pay increases to the 
armed forces which this year 
cost £129 million more than 
was planned - about the cost 
of a Type 23 frigate - and in 
1986-87 will be £36 million 
above the planned total. 

The MPs also warn that the 
decline of merchant ships 
available for defence purposes 
“remains a matter of 
concern," and they call for a 
formal government statement 
spelling out policy. 

• The report urges the Minis- 
try of Defence to examine 
urgently “corrective 
measures" aimed at stopping 


the flow of Royal Air Force 
pilots retiring early and join- 
ing domestic airlines. It costs 
the taxpayer £2.87 .million to 
train an RAF pilot to opera- 
tional fast jet standards, bat in 
the first 1 1 months of 1985, 
1 47 left the service, 58 of them 
on premature voluntary re- 
tirement. The RAF is short of 
100 junior officer pilots. 


Tories’ £lm mail 
publicity effort 


By Nicholas Wood, Political Reporter 


The Conservative Party is 
to spend about £! million on a 
publicity campaign aimed at 
winning the hearts and minds 
of about six million voters 
before the next election. 

Key groups such as the 
young, home owners, parents 
with small children and the 
old trill be sent a series of 
letters from party headquar- 
ters setting out the Govern- 
ment's thinking on political 
and social issues. 

They will also be asked to 
give their views on matters 
such as unemployment, social 
services, education and law 
and order as part of an unpre- 
cedented rolling survey of 
public opinion aimed at shap- 
ing the contents of the next 
Tory manifesto. 

A computer data bank con- 
taining about three million 
addresses will be used and the 
target six million are likely to 
be contacted several times 
during the course of the 
operation. 

Some will be brought to- 
gether in small groups to 
expand on their ideas about 
what should be done to tackle 
big political problems. 

The campaign is also in- 
tended to raise money towards 
wiping out an overdraft which 
stands at about£l.S million. 
Those contacted will be in- 
vited to make a contribution 
to party funds. 


The scheme is the brain- 
child of Sir Christopher 
Lawson, the marketing expert 
who helped to mastermind the 
1983 election victory and who 
rejoined the Conservative 
Party's Central Office six 
weeks ago as Director of 
Special Services. 

The campaign starts with a 
.pilot mailingaimed at 10,000 
people this week. 

He said he was concentrat- 
ing on direct mail because he 
did not believe other media 
such as television, radio and 
newspapers were as effective 
in getting a message across to 
people in their homes. 

The object of the exercise 
was communication — to put 
the Conservative case and to 
listen to what people are 
saying — and any funds raised 
were merely a “by-product” of 
that process. 

Echoing a familiar Tory 
refrain. Sir Christopher said 
the party was “foiling to get its 
message across in other ways". 

The Conservatives used di- 
rect mail on a much smaller 
scale before the last election, 
reaching about 300,000 people 
in the 12 months before poll- 
ing day. 

The other parties have fol- 
lowed foal lead, but. according 
to Sir Christopher, Central 
Office is confident that it can 
maintain its 







livery flying above the Essex countryside yesterday when 


BMA ‘no’ 
to move 
on records 


Patients foould not be given 
foe legal right of access to 
medical records, the British 
Medical Association decided 
yesterday. Instead it should 
always be the doctor who 
what info r ma tion from 
records a patient can have. 

In a derision that showed 
doctors to be deeply divided on 
foe issue, foe British Medical 
Association's animal repre- 
sentative meeting in Scarbor- 
ough overturned advice that 
foe association's comidl had 
given foe Department of 
Health. 

The conned had backed 
DHSS proposals that patients 
should have a qualified legal 
right of access to summaries 
and computerized records 
about them under foe Data 
Protection Act. 

The qualification would be 
to protect patients such as 
children and foe mentally «D 
from information which might 
harm them, and under the De- 
partment's proposals patients 
would be able to appeal to 
another doctor and eventually 
the omits for a second opinion 
on whether information should 
be withheld. 

But foe meeting derided by 
184 votes to 169 that there 
should be no legal right of 
t fftms to co mp uterized re- 
cords, despite a plea from Dr 
John Marks, chair man of foe 
BMA’s conned, that doctors 
should recognize that among 
the public “there is a great up- 
surge against paternalism and 
against foe idea that doctor 
knows best". 

“Most patients," he said, 
“have do wish whatsoever to 
know what is in their notes, 
foit they want to know that if 
they want to know they can 
find out" 

The conference insisted that 
any access patients may have 
to their records most always be 
at die discretion of foe doctor 

The association also urged 
the General Medical Council 
mice again to rec o ns ider its 
advice that doctors may tell 
parents if a girl aged under 16 
seeks contraceptive advice and 
die doctor considers foe girl 
too immature to understand 
die issues involved. 

Iff a doctor derided to breach 
foe patient's confidence foe 
onus of justifying foe disclo- 
sure should rest firmly on the 
doctor, the meeting decided.

The Stalker inquiry 


Police chief defends his integrity 


By Peter Davenport 


Mr John Stalker, the deputy 
off 1 


chief constable taken off the 
. inquiry into the Royal Ulster 
Constabulary after disciplin- 
ary allegations, said yesterday 
that the investigation against 
him was breaking new ground 
about the relationship be- 
tween senior polios officers 
and the public. 

He said that the report 
compiled against him on al- 
leged unwise associations with 
criminals could be levelled 
against any senior police offi- 
cer, judge or bishop. 

“It seems to be spotlighting 
the nature of a senior 
policeman's duties. When a 
person such as me arrives at a 


senior rank,' he makes a 
judgement about whether he 
will be chauffeur-driven- to 
mid from work, lode bis door 
at night, and not mix with 
people, or to continue to live 
in the real world. 

“At the end of the day, what 
matters is the personal integri- 
ty of the man.” • 

Mr Stalker, aged 47, added 
that be had laid down one 
simple ground rule to afi his 
friends: “Don't ask me any 
favours, because you won'tget 
any.” 

The Deputy Chief Consta- 
ble of Greater Manchester has 
been on extended leave for a 
month while Mr Colin Samp- 
son, Chief Constable of West 


Yorkshire, in vestigates disci- 
plinary allegations. Mr Samp* 
son has also replaced Mr 
Stalker as bead of the inquiry 
into the RUCs alleged shoot- 
to4dIl policy. 

Yesterday, Mir Stalker held 
a press conference about his 
private friendships and social 
contacts. 

It came after a meeting on 
. Monday with Mr Sampson, at 
which be was told of events 
being investigated, all finked 
.to his. 17-year friendship with 
Mr Kevin Taylor, a Manches- 
ter businessman and former 
chairman of the city’s Conser- 
vative Association. 

At foe press conference, Mr 
Stalker's lawyers issued a 


statement calling on foe 
Greater Manchester Police 
Authority to allow him to 
return to work immediately. 

Mr Stalker’s case is to be 
discussed by foe authority's 
controlling Labour group \o~ 

night, and by the full authority 

on Monday. _ 

Yesterday. Mr Rodger Pan- 
none, one of Mr Stalker’s 
lawyers, said that they had 
been presented with a report 
detailings holiday Mr Stalker 
and Mr Taylor had spent 
together, and four functions 
they had attended between 
I9K and 1985. They were also 
shown five photographs taken 
at Mr Taylor’s fiftieth birth- 
day party in 1982. 


Code for crown 
prosecutors 


By Frances Gibb, Legal Affairs Correspondent 


The new Crown Prosecu- 
tion Service, which is taking 
over responsibility for prose- 
cutions from foe police, is 
urged in a code of guidance to 
be “resolute" in ordering 
when necessary that proceed- 
ings should be dropped. 

The police decision to pros- 
ecute should never be met 
“with passive acquiescence” 
but mustralways be foe subject 
of review, foe code, published 
yesterday by the Attorney 
General, says. . . • 

Under foe new service, now 
in force in parts of the country, 
foe crown prosecutors have 
power to.order that proceed- 
ings. .sorted by the police 
should be dropped where 
cases are weak or it is other- 
wise in the public interest. 

That power is “foe most 
visible demonstration of foe 
service’s fundamental com- 
mitment towards ensuring 
that only fit and .proper cases 
are taken to trial”, the new 
code says. 

It emphasizes that foe pow- 
er to order proceedings to be 
dropped is a “continuing one" 
and crown prosecutors should 
continue to exercise their re- 


viewing function even when 
proceedings are under way. 

That is important it says, 
because “the emergence of 
new evidence or information 
may sometimes cast doubt on 
the propriety of foe initial 
decisions to proceed”. 

■ Normal practice will be to 
consult with the police when- 
ever it is proposed to discon- 
-tinue proceedings, started by 
them, the code says. 

• The new service was strong- 
ly criticised, yesterday by a 
London magistrate who bad 
threatened to release an al- 
leged killer unless his case was 
speeded up. 

Mr Enc Crowfoer. foe 
Horeeferry Road magistrate,- 
said there had been an “inex- 
cusable and inexplicable” de- 
lay in ibe case. He said thattbe 
“inefficiency and incom- 
pwence" of prosecuting agen- 
cies in general was partly to 
blame for .prison over- 
crowding. ■ 

. “In 35 years in the law 1 
don't think 1 have ever heard 
of prosecution papers being 
lost until the CTOwn Prosecu- 
tion Service came here two 
months ago". 


Solicitors may County chief 


limit demands 
on advocacy 


A significant shift in the 
debate among lawyers over 
advocacy rights was indicated 
last night when the Law 
Society president floated foe 
idea that wider rights for 
solicitors should be confined 
to those involved in litigation. 

“How would foe College of 
Judges and foe Bar react to 
aspirations for increased 
rights of audience pot forward 
on behalf of such a group 
rather than on behalf of all 
solicitors?" Sir Alan Leslie 
asked. 

At foe same time, he said 
there was an irresistible trend 
towards specialization among 
solicitors which would re- 
move work from the specialist 
Bar. 

“Certain of the larger City 
firms are already doing a' 
signficant amount of work as 
consultants", he said. 


to head 
Law Society 


The chief executive of War- 
wickshire County Council has 
been apppointed the new sec- 
retary general of foe Law 
Society. 

Mr John Hayes, aged 41, a 
member of the society’s coun- 
cil since 1985, will succeed Mr 
John Bowron, who retires next 
January. 

- The society also announced 
yesterday that Mr Christopher 
Saowting has been appointed 
foe new director of legal aid, 
succeeding Mr David Ed- 
wards, who is leaving in 
August to take a post in 
industry. 

Mr Snowiing, aged 51, is 
secretary of its professional 
purposes committee which is 
to be disbanded in September 
with foe setting up of the new

Bureau. 


Unionists 
divided 
on tactics 


By Richard Ford 

Unionist leaders m North- 
era Ireland yesterday attempt- 
ed to tniahnize divisions about 
tite tactics used to defeat the 


leaders remain mated 
on foe overall ana, bat e gulf 
remains on foe strategy for the 
next few mouths, which has 
been exacerbated by foe -Rev 
Ian Paisley’s attacks on police 
and his fhiin that. the Prov- 
ince is on the verge of civil war. 

Mr Pkisfey^ Democratic 
Unionist Party colleagues' are 
furious that only two Official 
Unionists took part m foe sit- 
in' at. the Chamber of -foe 
Defunct Northern Ireland 
Assembly. 

They are also unhappy at 
the presence of Official Union- 
ist MPs at Westminister, be- 
lieving thafthey are gradually 
being coaxed back into parlia- 
mentary business. 

After his call for the mobili- 
zation of Protestant people, 
Mr Paisley denied he was 
talkiug about threatening peo- 
ple or usng violence against 
them, but said “loyalists” 
mast be “ready to take over 
oar own country”. 

Mr Paisley V darien call 
has been greeted with dismay 
by some members of foe OUP, 
who know he faces aq uphill 


party's leaders are 
confident the vast majority of 
Unionist people wfll not rally 
to his side, although they have 
plans for passive civil disobe- 
dience to defeat foe agreement 
Elsewhere on foe streets and 
among political opponents, Mr 
Paisley's remarks have been 
greeted with cynical laughter 
and ridicule, though there are 
fears tint wilder “loyalist” 
dements may be encouraged 
to attack police officers and 
members of foe minority 
co mm u n ity. 

Mr Seamus Malkm, Social 
Democratic and Labour party 
MP for Newry Armagh de- 
scribed Mr Paisley as the 
“leader of the loyalist doj^ of 
war”. He urged “loyalists" not 
to be fooled: “I hope they 
that Mr Prisfey 


recogmze 
always fights to the last drop 
of somebody rise's Mood.”

Violent 
attack on 
news plant 


ByTimJones 

A senior policeman warned 
yesterday that it was only a 
matter of time before some- 
one was very seriously injured 
in- foe dispute between the 
print unions and News 
International. 

The warning from Bedford- 
shire police came after scenes 
kof sukained and bitter vio- 
lence early yesterday at a 
depot in Cosgrave Way, La- 
ton, used to distribute News 
International newspapers. 

About 40. men supporting 
the 5,500 print workers who 
wept oh strike stormed the 
depot add smashed their way 
with iron bars ^through two 
sections of chain link 

Inside the plant, they at- 
tacked police with bricks and 
other mi ssil e s. The violence 
subsided when police rein- 
forcements arrived. - • 

- Chief Inspector Ralph 
Miller said it was foe worst 
night of violence connected 
with an industrial dispute foe 
town bad seen fin* many years. 

He added: “We are very 
concerned Hot with this level 
of violence somebody will be 
badlytaun- 

It a ppea re d that most of the 
men involved were from out- 
side Bedfordshire. The only 
man arrested, for a public 
order offence, came from 
West Sussex. 

At the height of the violence 
two men on their way towork 
were slightly injured and sev- 
en vehicles belonging to the 
distribution company 
T. N. T. damaged. Six private 
vehicles had windscreens 
smashed. 

more than 200 


people lasted anti] foe early 
hours but distribution was not 


disrupted. 

• Print union leaders 


w moi union leaders yes- 
terday met Mr Norman Willis, 
general secretary of foe TUG 
to discuss the dispute. After- 
wards Miss Brenda Dean, 
general secretary of Sogat ’82 
said that the electricians’ 
union leader,. Mr No rman 
Hammond, would not be 
negotiating on their bahalf 
when he meets Mr Rupert 
Murdoch in New York tomor- 
row. . 


Fanners to get fall-out compensation 


The effect of foe Chernobyl 
nuclear power station disaster 
on formers will be raised with 
foe Soviet Union’s senior 
agriculture minister, Mr 
Vsevolod Murakhovsky, 
when he visits Britain, next 
week. 

However, it is understood 
that There is nothing in inter- 
national law which would 
allow Britain or other coun- 
tries to sue foe Soviet govern- 
ment for damages. 

All the indications are that 
foe Russians will ignore or 
reject daims from outride

The Soviet media have 
criticised western European 
measures taken after the 
disaster as exaggerated. 

The Government has de-

Leoni’s depraved killer 
sentenced to four 
terms of life in prison 


Gary Hopkins, an unem- 
ployed labourer who subjected 
link Leoni Keating to a night 
of sexual tenor before throw- 
ing her bound and alive into a 
watery grave, received four 
tile sentences yesterday for her 
abduction and murder — and 
fQr the previous kidnapping of 
two other girls. 

- . “The circumstances of her 
death display a degree of 
callousness and depravity 
which is almost, unbel- 
ievable”, Mr Justice Mann 
told Hopkins, aged 28. 

The judge added that medi- 
cal reports showed that for the 
indefinite future Ho pkins 
would pose a threat to young 
girts. 

Hopkins stood impassively 
in the dock at Ipswich Crown 
Court as a jury convicted him 
and the judge said he was 
recommending to the Home 
Secretary that Hopkins serve a 
minimum of 25 yeans in 
prison. 

After passing a unanimous 
verdict of guilty to three-year-

old LeonTs murder last year, 
the jury heard details of the 
two previous .kidnappings of 
young, girls committed by 
Hopkins at. caravan sites in 
East Anglia. 

Hopkins had admitted the 
kidnappings and charges of 
theft and wounding, but the 
judge ordered that evidence 
on the Leoni killing should be 
heard first. 

Leoni was with her mother, 
Mrs Gail Keating, at the end 
of a week’s holiday for bat T 
tered wives and foetr children 
at the Seashore caravan site in 
Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, 
when Hopkins kidnapped her 
on the night of September 13, 
198S — a charge he admi tted, 
although he denied her 
murder. 

Leoni had been left alone in 
the caravan by her mother 
who went out for the evening 
to the camp dub with her 
elder daughter Nikki and 
friends. 

Hopkins took Leoni from 
her bed after stealing a length 


- of twine from outside another 
caravan and drove tier nearly 
70 miles to Barton Mills in 
Suffolk. 

There he threw her body 
into a relief channel of the 
River Lark, alive and with her 
handy ho und behind her back 
with the stolen twine, to 
drown. 

After the hearing- LeonTs 
mother, Mrs Gail Keating 
said:. “1 am. relieved and very, 
very pleased with the result of 
the trial and very grateful that 
this man was caught. 

“The past few months have 
been indescribably worrying 
and difficult.” 

And Leoni’s father, Mr 
David Cornell, aged .41, who 
lost a custody order for the 
little girl only seven weeks 
before her death, said: “Gary 
Hopkins' greatest punishment 
will be in prison. 

“He wiD spend years rotting 
in a cell as a child kilter. His 
torment will go on and on, 
much longer than my little 
girl’s." 


Little body in the water was 
mistaken for ‘broken toy’ 


, The short life of Leoni 
.Keating — the lively and 
sometimes wilful product of a 
broken: home — was as anset- 
tled as its end was violent 

The pretty, fair-haired tod- 
dler spent it in a variety of 
"London lodgin g s , hippie com- 
munes and, for the last eight 
months, at a women's aid 
centre for battered wives in 
.Chiswick, west London. 

* When Mrs Margaret WQ- 
ton-Jones, a housewife on a 
caravan holiday, discovered 
foe body covered in silt in a 
release channel at Barton 
Mills, Suffolk, last September 
she first thought she was 
looking at a broken toy. 

The discovery timed a hunt 
for a missing child from foe 
Seashore caravan site at Great 
Yarmouth, Norfolk, into a 
murder inquiry nearly 70 miles 
away involving 170 officers 
from three forces. . 

September 13 was foe last 
day of a week's bofiday for a 
party of women and their 
children from foe aid centre. It 
was a week Leoni. enjoyed in

Keatmg, aged' 33, hex half- 
sister Nfi&ky, now a$d 14, and - 
■two other children aged 13 and 
14. 

Mrs Keating wanted to 
spend the last night of foe 


holiday with the older children 
and friends at the caravan site 
clubhouse before leaving the 
next raoniBig. 

At 8.15pm Leon! had a meal 

of egg »n»l chips and finall y 
fell asleep at 93%m. 

Half an hour later, Mrs 
Keating locked the caravan 
and left her daughter alone, 
the last time she was to see 
her. An older child from the 
site whom Mrs Keating odd

babysit failed to arrive.

. Beechook 
‘mentally 
deranged 9 

■ Mirella Beechook was men- 

■ /tally deranged and had lost her 
self-control when she stran- 
gled her daughter Tina, aged 
-seven, and the girl's playmate, 
‘Stacey Kavanagh, aged four, 

■ the Central Criminal Court 
was told yesterday. 

Dr Raghu Gaind, a psychia- 

- trist, said: “How sudden the 
• loss of self-control was- is 
difficult to say. It has to be 
seen in the context of her 
being mentally deranged at the 
time.” 

Mrs Beechook, aged 26, of 
Swan Road Estate, Roth- 
-eririthe, south London, denies 
murdering the girls on Sep- 
tember 18 last year. 

■ - Mr Alan Green, for the 
prosecution, has told the court 
there was no dispute that Mrs 
Beechook killed both children. 
The issue was whether she 
intended to kill them and, if 
. she did. whether she was 
-suffering from an abnormality 
of mind that diminished her 

- responsibility. 

Mr David Pitcher, another 
psychiatrist, read Mrs Bee- 
ebook’s account of how she 
stranded her daughter. She 
lold him she took both girts to 
play in Southwark Park. 

She said: “I strangled 
Stacey. I cannot tell you what 
she said or if there was a 
struggle. All I could bear-was 
'strangle, strangle', as if some- 
one was saying it.”Mis 
Beechook said she returned

Dr Pitcher said: “l cannot

Policy team study 
sugar and health 

. By Thomson Prentice, Science Correspondent 


The possible risks to health 
of sugar in foe diet are to be in- 
vestigated by a team of experts 
who will report their findings 
to foe Government. 

The Committee on Medical 
Aspects of Food Policy 
(Coma), which advises the 
Department of Health and 
Social Security on national 
food and health strategies, will 
set up a group of specialists to 
study foe evidence on the 
increasingly controversial 
subject. ' 

An official announcement is 
expected to be made soon. 

The committee has pro- 
duced reports on "diet and 
cardiovascular dimam, and 
daily amounts of food, energy 
and nutrients. 

Britain has no policy on 
sugar and health, but some 
medical experts believe foal 
sugar consumption should be 
cut by half because of suspect- 
ed links with tooth decay, 
obesity, and- possibly heart 
disease. 

The British Nutrition Foun- 
dation, which is funded by foe 
food industry, set up a task 


force on sugars andsyrups two 
years ago and publication of 
its report is imminent. 

There has been dissent 
among members of the task 
force, however, over foe rec- 
ommendation of one special- 
ist that there should be a 
50 per cent reduction in aver- 
age sugar intake. 

The ; report recommends 
that frequent consumption of 
sugar should be avoided, with 
a suggested limit of five times 
a day, to combat tooth decay. 
It also says that people who 
are overweight should consid- 
er reducing sugar consump- 
tion, among other things. 

It says, however, that there 
is no evidence of a direct 
association between sugar and 
heart disease, although it ac- 
knowledges that obesity is a 
risk factor. 

The move to set up a team 
under the committee is being 
seen as an attempt by foe 
Government to improve on 
the foundation's research and 
to settle some of the conflicts 
between the sugar industry 
and health professionals. 


Murder not explained 


Christopher Tierney’s mar- 
riage ended in a "savage 
murder” after 17. days when 
he tore up his marriage certifi- 
cate and stabbed, his tiny 
bride. Sash, 25 times with a 
knife in afrenried rage, a court 
was told yesterday. 

But whai led to foe violent 
rod of the couple’s short-lived 
marriage remains unknown. 
Mr Thomas Field-Fisher, QC, 
for the prosecution, said at 
Exeter - Down Court that 
aged 33, -who was 


unemployed,- -refused to give : 
any explanation to foe jpolice. 

. Tierney was jailed tor life 
after pfe&ing guilty to mur- 


dering his bride, aged 20, at 
their home in Alma Road, 
Plymouth, Devon. 

Tbe police found Mrs 
Tierney’s diary, in which her 
husband had scrawled foe 
words “left you” on the day of 
the murder, July 25 last year. 

They also found a tom en- 
velope on which Tierney had 
wrinen:. “You lied to me. If 
you want a life of deceit, have 
A alone. Stay away.” 

... Mr fidd-Ftsher said: “The 
murder was committed in a 
frenzy of rage. He said Tierney 
. stabbed his wife with a black- 
handled knife which . had a 
fiverinch blade. 


The Prince of Wales greeting members of the Asian community while visiting Lozells Road, 
Handsworth, yesterday, the scene of last year's riots (Photograph: Chris Harris). 

I will return, Prince says 


By Craig Seton 

The people of Handsworth, 
Birmingham, appealed to the 
Prime of Wales to help them 
to rebuild their shattered com- 
munity when he toured foe 
area yesterday, nine months 
after it was devastated by 
riots. 

The Prince spent two hours 
amid tight security in the 
deprived, rundown inner-city 
district of Handsworth and 
Lozells, where the worst of foe 
rioting flared, tearing two dead 
and semes injured. 

He saw foe still derelict 
remains of more than 40 shops 


and stores that were destroyed 
by looters and arsonists. 

After listening to the pro- 
tests of local traders that they 
still had not been compensated 
for the damage, foe Prince 
said he would return to see the 
progress in rebuilding the 
community. 

The Prince faced the jeers 
and shoots of a small group of 
demonstrators, protesting 
about foe impending deporta- 
tion of a local man, when he 
arrived In Lozells Road. 

But their protest was 
drowned by foe cheers of 
hundreds of local black, white 


and Asian people holding 
banners and posters asking: 
“What is ©nr future, our future 
King?” and “Dear Prince, do 
not let Lozells die. 

Prince Charles was told of 
three workshops, housing and 
arts projects that were being 
funded since last September’s 
riot and heard that more than 
£20 milli on had been spent in 
foe area in the past five years.

spoken chairman iff foe

ation, showed die Prince

Pricing review 
as more phone 
calls are made 

By Teresa Poole 


British Telecom may be 
making loo much money, 
given its position as a near- 
monopoly, as a result of 
increases in the number of 
phone calls being made. 

Professor Bryan Carsberg, 
head of Oftel, the government 
watchdog for foe telecom- 
munications industry, has 
started a study into the pricing 
formula imposed on Telecom 
at the time of privatization. 

He is expected to decide in 
foe autumn if it will have to be 
changed. If it is, there would 
be tighter limits on what 
Telecom could charge. 

At present foe overall 
charges for direct dialled in- 
land telephone calls and ex- 
change line rentals can be 
increased only by three per- 
centage points less than foe 
rate of inflation. 

That simple structure does 
not lake into accoum foe 
□umber of calls made. 

As that increases, they be- 
come more profitable because 
foe related costs rise more 
slowly. Last week Telecom 
announced a 19 per cent 


increase in profits to 
£1.81 billion. 

The price control rule ex- 
pires in 1989. But in Ofters 
1 985 annual report, published 
yesterday. Professor Carsberg 
says he would consider intro- 
ducing a new price structure if 
British Telecom's rate of re- 
turn on investment was too 
high. There is some concern 
that that is now the case. 

Oftel received 1,114 com- 
plaints about telecommunica- 
tions licensing, and a further 
10,000 were made on consum- 
er matters. 

The main areas of concern 
were tariffs and charges, quali- 
ty of service and disputed 
telephone accounts. 

Many arose from the new 
pricing structure imposed in 
November which increased 
the cost of local calls while 
cutting long-distance rates. 

Professor Carsberg says in 
his report that he will not 
allow that policy to be carried 
beyond what is justified on 
economic grounds. 

He also urges improve- 
ments in the public call box 
service. 


Fair trade chief hacks 
at guarantees jungle 

By Derek Harris 


Extensive improvements in 
guarantees for goods and ser- 
vices to protea consumers 
were called for yesterday by 
Sir Gordon Borne, Director 
General of Fair Trading, who 
said that without voluntary 
improvements he would con- 
sider recommending legis- 
lation. 

A nationwide survey con- 
ducted for the Office of Fair 
Trading (OFT) reported an 
estimated 12.5 million claims 
under guarantee during three 
years to 1984. In about one in 
five instances consumers were 


(eft dissatisfied with foe result. 

That led Sir Gordon to call 
for widespread changes, in- 
cluding clearer detailing of 
guarantees, ready transfers of 
guarantees, improvements to 
those on second-hand cars and 
greater protection on long- 
term guarantees. 

Sir Gordon sai± “Guaran- 
tees offered by manufacturers 
and suppliers can be of great 
benefit to foe consumer, but 
all loo often they are used 
merely as a marketing ploy or 
as an additional source of 
income for foe trader”.

Tambo interview 


Deterioration of houses 


All must join dialogue 


SOUTH AFRICA 

Mrs Lynda Chalker, Minuter of 
Slate for Foreign and Common- 
wealth Affairs, told the Com- 
mons that she did not think her 
meeting yesterday with Mr Oli- 
ver Tambo, acting President of 
the Afhcan National Congress, 
would give the wrong im- 
pression, that the Government 
had come down in favour of the 
ANC as the principal negotiat- 
ing authority with which Presi- 
dent Botha should be doing 
business. 

She told Mr Julian Amery 

(Brighton, Pavilion, O, who 
said her meeting could have 
given that impression, chat she 
had always made it clear, as had 
Sir Geoffrey Howe. Secretary of 
State for Foreign and Common- 
wealth Affairs, that the dialogue 
was to be between all groups. 

She informed MPs that 
representations were being 
made to the South African 
Government in London and 
Pretoria today about the state of 
emergency, arrests and deten- 
tions without triaL 
Mrs Chalker recalled that she 
had emphasized to Mr Tambo 
that violence could never lead to 
a solution of South Africa's 
problems and that a suspension 
of violence on all sides was 
essential to create a climate for 
dialogue and negotiations. 

She had also stressed, during a 
candid and useful exchange of 
views, the British Government’s 
continuing commitment to the 
early and complete elimination 
of apartheid. 

Mr George Robertson, an Oppo- 
sition spokesman on foreign and 
Commonwealth affairs, 
congratulated Mrs Chalker on 
her courage in changing the 
Prime Minister’s line and meet- 
ing Mr Tambo. 

We and the majority of the 
British people (he said) welcome 
the belated recognition by the 
Government of the reality that 
the ANC speaks for the voiceless 
millions in South Africa. 

But this meeting would be 
seen as little more than a gesture 
unless it became port of a 
process of dialogue with real 
opinion in South Africa, a 
country described by Mrs Helen 
Suzman last night as being like a 
Latin American dictatorship, 
and a process of real pressure 
from meaningful sanctions. 


The Government, ai the EEC 
summit tomorrow, should 
abandon its role as the last 
supporter of apartheid and put 
maximum pressure on South 
Africa to prevent the bloodshed 
predicted by the Eminent Per- 
sons Group. . . . . . . 

Mrs Chalker said it had been 
held that the ANC represented a 
lot of black opinion but not 
exclusively. 

Britain would have no hesita- 
tion in leading the way m the 
most effective way possible to 
bring about an end to apartheid. 
Mr Anrery said the ANC un- 
doubtedly* represented an im- 
portant section of black African 
opinion though by no means aQ 
of it, perhaps not the majority of 
it 

Moderate Africans, not pro 
apartheid but anti-ANC could 
have got the impression that the 
Government felt the ANC was 
the principal negotiating 
authority. 

Mrs Chalker said it was impos- 
sible to say exactly if the ANC 
formed the majority of black 



Wtggjii: Win Government 
treat with terrorists? 

opinion. But they were one of 
many groups. It was dear that 
the ANC leaders believed there 
were other voices which should 
be heard in a dialogue between 
all peoples. 

Mr Alan Berth (Berwick upon 
Tweed, L): Would Mrs Chalker 
also meet Dr Allan Boesack of 
the UDF -who is already in 
London or is coming here? 

Mrs Chalker said that any 
suggestions that members of the 
Government meet various peo- 
ple would be considered on their 
merits. 

Mr Mark Carlisle (Warrington 
South, O said many Tories 


lit right 

had met Mr Tambo as an 
important voice. 

But would she repudiate com- 
ments from the Opposition 
front bench that the Conser- 
vative Party was the last sup- 
porter of apanheid? 

Mrs Chalker agreed. The Gov- 
ernment would never be lagging 
in its condemnation of 
apartheid 

Mr Thomas Clarke (Mould ands 
West. Labi said sanctions as 
well as representations should 
be considered and asked the 
minister to deplore the action of 
a regime so insecure that it had 
felt it necessary to do what Mr 
Gorbachov had not done and 
steal Mr Denis Healey’s camera. 
Mrs Chalker said she was not 
aware of that particular viola- 
tion of the law. 

The Cabinet and the Prime 
Minister would go with an open 
mind to the meeting of the 
European Council on the most 
effective way to bring about a 
change in the attitude of the 
South African Government. 

Today (she said) representa- 
tions are being made to the 
South African Government 
both in Pretoria and London on 
the state of emergency and 
arrests and detentions without 
triaL 

Sir Peter Emery (Honiton. C): 
Will she cry to ensure that the 
British Government does not 
find itself isolated from the 
Common wealth or the EEC in 
being unwilling to take a lead in 
positive action? We should con- 
demn absolutely the racist and 
repressive measures of the 
South African Government and 
we should be in the lead, not 
following. 

Mrs Chalker: I shall draw his 
remarks to the attention of the 
Foreign Secretary and the Prime 
Minister. 

Mr Gay Barnett (Greenwich, 
Lab): Violence from the African 
side cannot and will not be 
suspended until Nelson 
Mandela is released. Peaceful 
negotiations cannot and will not 
begin until that happens. 

Mrs Chalker We have repeat- 
edly called for the unconditional 
release of Nelson Mandela and 
other detainees because we do 
believe he is a man who could 
lead not only moderate opinion 
but also some of the people 
whose actions have got out of 
han d and are under the control 


of nobody at present. We hope 
there will be an early uncondi- 
tional release of Mr Mandela 
and. others Like him. 

Mr Anthony Nelson (Chich- 
ester, Q: Will she explain why it 
is wrong- to receive the FLO 
because they refuse to renounce 
terrorism and violence and it is 
right to receive the ANC which 
openly espouses it? 

Mrs Chalker Our official level 
contacts and my meeting yes- 
terday were an attempt- which 
the Government believes 
should be made to uy to bring 
an end to the violence and a 
start to tbe dialogue. * 

Mr David Neffist (Coventry. 
South East, . Lab): In the 
representations made -today to 

the South African Government, 

what reference was made to the 
feet that within the 3.000 arrests 
in the last 10 days US are key 
trade union leaders, from shop 
stewards to general secretaries, 
many of whom lead workers 
who work for the subsidiaries of 
British firms? 

What representations to se- 
cure their release are being 
made? Or are the profits from 
the investments of British 
companies in South Africa more 
important than the rights of 
workers in that country? 

Mm Chalker The represent- 
ations are being at this 
very time in both London and 
Pretoria. Representations are 
being made on all those who 
under this stale of emergency 
have been arre st ed and de- 
tained, whether trade union 
leaders, church leaders, inno- 
cent churchgoers or anybody 
else. 

Mr Jerry Wiggfa (Westoa-su- 
per-Marc, C): Do we now take it 
that the British Government 
will treat with terrorists? 

Mrs Chalker We seek to pro- 
mote dialogue to achieve nego- 
tiation. A man who i m pressed 
y e st e rd a y his total dislike of 
violence may indeed be able to 
help in the process towards 
dialogue and the ending of 
violence. 

I spent more than half tbe 
time talking about the negative 
effects of violence and seeking, 
not just to persuade, but also to 
to impress on Mr Tambo bow 
this was exacerbating tbe situa- 
tion as well as any other 
violence It was right to do so on 
behalf of the British Govern- 
ment We are in no way treating 
with terrorists. 


Proposed benefit cut criticized

on the Government plans. 

. However, in defending them, 
Mr Antony Newton, Minister

be very short periods, and when

guaranteed security of tenure of 
the family home. 

Mr Meacher said the proposal 
would sentence thousands to 
rising mortgage arrears and 
, evictions as a penalty for being 
unemployed. 

If the Government were 
' determined to make savings in 


this area a much fairer and more 
rewarding route would be to 
restrict mortgage interest tax 
relief to the standard rate, which 
would save £250 million, 
without the immensely 
damaging side effects. 

Mr Newton sauLthere had been 
no' mystery' about the 
Government view that the 
benefit system needed review 
nor about its thinking on what 
tbe condushm of that review 
might be. - 

Far from seeking to disguise 
that, they had amended leaflets 
to draw attention to the feet that 
the Government tmdeitaSing 
the examination. 

Mr Anthony Beaumont-Dark 
(Birmingham, Sefly Oak, C) 
asked now it helped, when 
people were at their most 
vulnerable, to add to their 
womes-There was a lack of 
generosity of spirit in the 
proposal. 

Mr Newton said it was a 
separate issue from whether this 
or any other part of tbe benefit 
system was abused. 

Mr Robin MaxweD-Hyslop 
(Ttverton, Q said that people 
had entered commitments on 
the basis of a leaflet which said 
that supplementary benefit 
would be paid for mortgage 
interest. They might not 
otherwise have entered those 
commitments. 

Mr Newton; I appreciate the 
implication of the question, but 
the leaflet can only be taken os a 


i which 

exists at the time of the leaflet. 1 
note his point and bis concern. 

The draft regulation also 
included a proposal to indude 
advances for house 
improvements and for the 
disregard of mortgage 
protection policies taken out to 
meet mortgage payments. 

Tbe main proposal was to 
limit the. amount of 
supplementary benefit payable 
for mortgage interest to 50 per 
cent of tbe total for the first ax 
months of benefit for everyone 
under 60. 

The Government estimated 
that the proposals affected about 
one-fifth of expenditure in this 
area: £30 million out of £150 
million, and about 90,000 
claimants at any one time. 

That £30 million compared 
with £9,000 million paid to 
building societies in mortgage 
interest, and the 90JJ00 figure 
compared with some six million 
borrowers. 

. When a claim lasted more 
than six months 
interest would be met in 
Despite the numbers of people 
who were unemployed for 
longer periods, most spells of 
- unemployment even now were 
relatively short . 

It is appropriate (he said) to 
strike a reasonable balance 
between a variety of 
considerations: the amount of 
help borrowers can legitimately 


expect to receive from the 
benefit system in securing a 
capital asset normally growing 
in value every year, tbe 
guarantee the should 

expect from the benefit system 
in p rotect in g the loan he has 
advanced, and what it is 
reasonable to expect the 
taxpayer to cany. . 

Mr Gordon Oakes (Hatton, 
Lab) said building societies were 
caring institutions aqd the Gov- 
ernment was hoping that if the 
borrower could not pay the 
other half of his mortgage after 
six months then the societies 
would pick up the tab for the 
DHSSL He thought they would 
do that, but it was unjust. 

There could be a system of 
direct payments of mortgage 
interest to the building societies 
in the same way as there was 
direct payment of rent to local 
authorities. 

Mr Archy Kirkwood 
and Berwickshire, L) said 
whole concept of tbe welfare 
state was that it should provide 
for unaccountable misfortunes. 
Someone losing their job was a 
classic case, and for the welfare 
state to withdraw an dement of 
support on top of such a 
misfortune ran counter to the 
principles and tradition of the 
welfare state. 

Tbe Opposition motion was 
rejected by 259 votes to 198 — 
Government majority, 61. 


When councils give themselves permission 


PLANNING 


Proposals to limit tbe power of 
local authorities to give plan- 
ning permission over land they 
own will be considered by tbe 
Department of Environment 
again if the Commons Select 
Committee on the Environment 
make recommendations on it in 


their forthcoming report. 

This was indicated during 
Commons question time by Mr 
Richard Tracey, Under Sec- 
retary of State for Environment, 
in reply to Mr Nicholas Baker 
(North Dorset, Q who called for 
action. Mr Tracey said that in 
general the present arrange- 
ments for making this type of 
decision appear to operate 
satisfactorily but the Select 


Committee on the Environment 
had referred to the matter in 
recent examination of witnesses. 
Mr Nicholas Bdcer considered 
there was something wrong with 
the situation. 

Dorset County Council had 
given itself planning permission 
to sell off a piece of a school 
playing field in spite of objec- 
tions from all tbe other local 
authorities and other bodies 


interested in or adjacent to tbe 
project. 

There was a matter for con- 
cern. Would the minister look 
into it? 

Mr Tracey: We are sympathetic 
to tbe general point Local 
pfenning authorities are answer- 
able to their electorates for the 
way in which they discharge 
their responsibilities. 


Palace to 
get the 
dripping 
treatment 


WESTMINSTER 


Bans for- the next phase of 
restoring the exterior of tbe 
PafeceotWestrainstec are under 
consideration and Sir George 
Young, Unde Secretary of State 
for Environment, told tbe 
Commons be hoped to make an 
announcement later ibis year. , 

He said that current work on 
the terrace elevation and Lord 
Chancellors Tower should be 
completed in November and 
there was much still to.be done. 
It would take a number of years 
to complete ibe massive task. 

Mr Gerald Bowden (Dulwich. 
O said the restoration work 
completed had done so much to 
enhance the architectural 
heritage of this part of London 
and had proved a popular 
tourist focus. 

As a surveyor, he wanted to 
know which stone cleaning 
technique it was proposed to use 
for the remainder of tbe work — 
wet or dry. 

Sir George Young said the 
Palace or Westminster was a 
major tourist attraction and it 
was right to see it ax its best 

On deaning techniques there 
were two approaches, one wet, 
one dry. The one wet healed tbe 
affected areas by the steady 
application of dripping water 
and die dry one involved tbe 
vigorous application of air and 
gm. He preferred the former.

The Government did sot intend 
to make any changes to its 
policies on the Green Belt, Mr

Plan for new

An appealfor the Department of 
Environment to encourage the 
rebuilding of the Globe Theatre 
400 years after William Shake- 
speare used it was made during 
Commons question time by Mr 
Simon Hughes (Southwark and 
Bermondsey, L). ' 

He said that a settlement had 
been reached so that the build- 
ing of the theatre was likely to go 
ahead. 

Mr Richard Tracey, Under 
Secretary of State for the 
Environment, said that as he 
had been boro in Stratford-on- 
Avon, he had considerable sym- 
pathy for anything to do with 
William Shakespeare. 

All material considerations 
would be taken into account in 
the matter.

HOUSING 


Mr Nfchofos Mdfcy, Secretary 
of State for Environment, made 
dear in the* Commons that he 
would be footing to see how the 
appalling state of disrepair of 
local authority housing Could . 
best be dealt with. He took the j 
situation seriously. 

We have two things to do now 
(he declared). We have first to 
see bow' best to (dear up the 
errors and neglect of local 
authorities. Second, we have to 
put it fairly on the line that local 
authorities should not allow 
further neglect and 
deterioration. ■' 

Answe rin g questions for the 
first time since being moved to 
the Department of tbe Environ- 
ment, Mr Ridley indicated that 
he would be meeting repre- 
sentatives of the local authority 
associations to discuss various 
housing issues at the Housing 
Consultative Council meeting 
on July 8. 

He told MPs: We should not 
let further disrepair take place or

neglect afbeasmg 

further houses get into a state of 
disrepair, and avoid past mis- 
takes in feiting.to main tain 
houses as we go along out of 
housing revenue accounts. 

In giving his view, of the 
situation, he said: The fun- 
damental problem, is that these 
houses have been allowed to 
exist without bringtepaired and 
local authorities nave not had 
sufficient revenue to do so. 
Whether it is'done fry allowing 
tenan t* to do it at their own 
expense or whether tenants pay 
more so that the local authority 
can do it is a secondary issue. It 
should never have been allowed 
to happen in the fiist place. 

The areas where the mam 
disrepair bad been allowed to 
grow tended to be in large 
municipal bousing estates where 
there were very small, receipts. 
The -areas with large accu- 
mulated receipts tended to be in 
areas where the local authority 
had kept its houses in a much 


better state of repair. There was 
a serious mis-match between the 
resources and tbe needs. 

T recognize the problem w 
certain areas (he said). We must 
make sure we do not get in 
worse position. , 

Mr John Cartwright [Wod" 
wich.SDP 1 ) begm «« exdai®* 
by asking rf the 
■ cepied the Audit Commissions 
estimate that sonredung hke 
£900 million was added wri* 
council housing repair biH crery 
year. What steps were bM"° 
taken to ensure t hat lew 
authorities displayed greater m- 
terest in co-operating with Ufe 
private sector in the repair and 
rehabilitation of council estates. 
Mr Ridley said he had . barely 
received let alone had “ 
Study the report to which Mr 
Cartwright referred. If it were 
proved to be so (he went on) it 
must be said that local authori- 
ties have foiled for many years 
to keep their housing stock in a 
good stale. 

They have now come along 
with a problem which appears to 
be of so great a capital nature 
because of their neglect to keep 
rents az a level where they could 
afford to keep houses in good 
order. Further evidence of that 
is that spending on bouses was 
abysmally low when we c am e to 
power, both for repair and 
mai nte nance . 

Since 1981 (he continued) 
spending per house has gone up 
by 21:5. per cent in real terms, 
we have figures of £7 5 billion a 
year- on maintenance and £1-2 
bill ion on capital and £1.4 
billion on revenue expenditure, 
which are for better figures than 
when we first came to power. In 
tbe part not enough has been 
spent to maintain the houses, 
which is why we have this bad 
repair situation. _ 

Mr Nick Rayusford (Fulham, 
Lab) asked if be would consider 
using capital receipts available 
elsewereto help local authorities 
with the greatest need. 

Mr Ridley: We are delighted to 
hear that the Labour Party 
thinks that the prudent house- 
keeping of many Tory district 
yrnnyriiQ which has resulted in 
accumulated receipts should be 
forcibly taken away from them 
and given to spendthrift 
aulhonries who foiled to keep 
their houses in order. 

The . essential need (be said 
later) is for local authorities to 
give themselves sufficient re- 
sources and use them with tbe 
greatest value for money pos- 
sible to make sure that their 
housing stock does not deteri- 
orate. : 

It is not only rates or grant 
that is available to local authori- 
ties. There is ten barns’ income 
which could be spent on tenants* 
housing if there was a proper 
level of rents. 


Professor to head 
naval inquiry 


FRIGATE DESIGN 


Professor John Caldwell, Presi- 
dent of tbe Royal Institute of 
Naval Architects is to head the 
inquiry into tbe relative merits 
of the shortest or long/thin hull 
form for frigates. Lard 
Trefgarae, Minister of State for 
Defence Procurement, an- 
nounced in a debate in tbe 
House of Lords on the 1986 
defence estimates. 

He said that the team of 
independent experts,' which 
would decide whether the cor- 
rect derision was made in 1983 
to stick with the traditional 
design for anti-submarine ves- 
sels. was now bring assembled 
by the professor- 
lain sure the Honse win agree 
(he said) that it is of the highest 
importance that this matter be 
looked into very thoroughly in 
order to settle once and for all an 
issue which has been the subject 
of debate and controversy for 
sometime. 

Lord HHl-Norton, former Chief 
of tbe General Staff who won 
tbe inquiry after raising the issue 
with the Government, wel- 
comed the appointment of 
Professor Caldwell which be 


said would . ensure the 
committee’s impartiality. 

It was important that the 
inquiry should concern itself 
merely with which was the best 
hull form for modem warships 
of frigate or destroyer size and 
not to rake over the embers of 
what took {dace in 1983. 

Tbe services’ major r esou rce 
was manpower and he feared 
this had now been cut back too 
for, particularly the Royal Navy. 
While applauding the improve- 
ments mad e in the teeth-to-tail 
ratio and squeezing out what 
little fot there' was; tbe process 
had been allowed to go too for. 

Our men and women in 
uniform (he said) will be 
stretched to a degree which in 
1986 and in peacetime is no 
longer acceptable to. them and 
ought not to be acceptable to us. 

It is not only that people, well 
trained and motivated as they, 
are likely to. make mistakes 
which are extremely damaging 
and costly with modem equip- 
ment (he. continued) but they 
will also begin to wonder 
whether they want to join or. 
having joined, whether they 
warn to stay. 

Resources ought to match the 
task, otherwise the job would 
not get done.

Be said daring Commom 
questions that ia many; 
privatizations the Government 
had thought it appropriate to.

Mr Nigel Spearing (Newham

volves setting off the ownership 
and control of the Rhrer Thames 
fimn Teddiagton to Cirencester 
and Tewksbury- In the debate on

shareholdings in this river. 

Watt he bow red the House the

The sale of ths river and and 
any other rivers in tbe commy to 
private ownership is entirely 
aaainst the views of tbe majority 
of people in this coantry. 

Mr Ridley: Tewksbury is in the 

Severn catchment area, al- 
though Cirencester is in the 
Thames catchment area. I must 
correct him in another more 
important respect. 1 see no 
objection whatsoever to the faiF 
port of capita! into this c o o n t ry. 

Many of o«r industries rely oo 
imported capital and many 
many of our jobs rely on capital 
which we have exported over- 
seas. I do not take the narrow, 
blinkered attitude be lakes to 
the free Sow of capital in world 
markets. 

Mr Allan Roberts (Boode. Lab): 
Has the Minister just confirmed 
that the French could actually bp 
the North West Water Author- 
ity and the Thames Water 
Authority? We could have the 
British not only baying energy 
from the french, but water as 
welL Does he believe the British 
people want that? . 

These so-called private water 
companies me merely franchis- 
ing companies which sefl water 
which they net from existing 
publicly owned water authorities 
and not one s responsible for 
pollution or sewerage. There is 
no profit in that. 

Mr Ridley: In many 
privatizations the Government 
has thought appropriate to take 
a controlling share and to con- 
trol the degree of foretga owner- 
ship. When we come to consider 
water in tins House we can 
discuss the pros and coos of such 
apoficy. 

It is not possible to dose down 
the North West Water Author- 
ity. The problem is nothing like 
as important as die Opposition 
seems to be majoring on. It is 
true that private water compa- 
nies do not perform the entire 
function of the water cycle, but 
those functions they do perform 
they perform with first class 
standards. 


Industry and

support dance 

A programme combining 
sponsorship aid from a private 
sec t or company, the Digital 
Equipment Company, and from 
the Government, for the whole 
range of dance activity was 
announced in a Commons 
written reply by Mr Richard 
Luce, Minister for the Arts. 

He said that the matching 
funding offered by the 
Government's Business 
Sponsorship Incentive Scheme 
had been a major influence in 
the DEC decision and would 
mean a total injection of 
£500.000 of-new funding. 

He said the imaginative 
sponsorship package was an 
outstanding example ofbusiness 
and Government joining forces 
to support the arts. It would be 
welcomed by all who loved

Central London is to get its

foster and more frequent ser- 
vices than the conventional red 
double-deckers, London Re- 
gional Transport announced 
yesterday. 

Up to 40 streamlined “City

agement buyout firm in Leeds, 
wiD start to operate in Septem- 
ber 00 two routes: FarOsuneflt 
Square to High Street, Ken-

Parliament H3I Fields. 

The new hoses wfl l ran

If successful they wffl be

The experiment marks a 
belated response by LRT to 
tbe failure by private enter- 
prise operators to provide 
minibuses set rices in central 
London some years ago m the

Home ownership rise 
leaves many still 
hoping, survey shows 




. v.- < * 


There is still a large unsatis- 
fied demand for home owner- 


ship in spite of a rapid increase 
in the past six years, according 
to a survey by the Building 
Societies Association, pub- 
lished yesterday. 

The figures show that own- 
ership, helped by the Gov- 
ernment's right-to-buy policy 
for council tenants, increased 
from 55 per cent to 62 per 
cent between 1979 and 1985. 

. Mr Nicholas Ridley. Secre- 
tary of State for the Environ- 
ment, said recently that the 
level in England was 64 per 
cent. 

The survey showed that 
77 per cent of people regarded 
owner-occupation as their ide- 
al tenure, with an even higher 
proportion in the younger age 
groups. 

About 80 per cent of those 
aged between 20 and 24, and 
88 per cent of those between 
25 and 34, said that it was the 
tenure they saw as their ideal 
for two years later. -

high or low by international 
standards. 


About 400,000 counci] ten- 
ants, or 8 percent of the total, 
have bought their homes since 
1983, and demand remains 
high, with 31 per cent of 
tenants expressing interest in 
buying their council dwelling, 
and 25 per cent saying that it 
was likely they would do so. 

International comparisons 
show at the same time that 
Britain has a poor record for 
residential housing construct- 
ion. 

Home building was 3.8 per 
cent of the gross domestic 
product from 1960 to 1983. 
compared with 5.3 per cent 
for all countries covered by 
the Organization for Econom- 
ic Co-operation and Develop- 
ment. and the level in 
industrial countries such as 
Japan, West Germany and 
Fiance stands at more than 
6 percent.

occupation is not unusually

Court plea 
on young 
offenders 

By Frances Gibb 
Legal Affairs 
Correspondent 

Juvenile courts should be 
abolished and replaced with a 
family court with jurisdiction 
over juvenile crime, the Na- 
tional Association for the Care 
and Resettlement of Offenders 
(Nacro) said m a briefing 
paper yesterday. • — . . 

The juvenile court, set up 
nearly 80 years ago, is outdat- 
ed; “steeped in the adversarial, 
legalistic and punitive tradi- 
tions of the adult criminal 
justice system", and has lan- 
guage and procedures that 
baffle children and parents 
alike, it says. 

It adds that there are “inor- 
dinate delays in getting cases 
heard" and that there has been 
too fittle effort to make pro- 
ceedings more informal and 
increase participation by chil- 
dren and families. 

The association says that a 
famil y court should be intro- 
duced “as soon as posable" 
for juveniles who admit of- 
fences or any juvenile crime 
‘ that does not have to be tried 
at the Crown court or in die 
adult magistrates 1 courts. 

The association says that 
too many juveniles are prose- 
cuted under the present sys- 
tem, which involves them in 
court proceedings that can be 
■ damagin g and confirm them in 
their delinquent activities. The 
paper also criticizes the selec- 
tion of magistrates for the 
juvenile bench, as not suffi- 
ciently representative of youn- 
ger people from a cross-section 
of the community. The associ- 
ation proposes that such a 
court could be set up in a way 
that would incorporate the 
best features of the Scottish 
children's bearings, promoting 
participation and informality 
while retaining children's 
rights. 

The Lord Chancellor's De- 
partment is considering the 
possible structure of a family 
court and has Invited com- 
ments. 


Cardiff college 
attacks critics 

By Lucy Hodges, Education Correspondent 


University College, Cardiff 
has strongly denied criticisms 
in an accountants' report on 
the college. The rebuttal, pub- 
lished yesterday, said Price 
Waterhouse bad made mis- 
takes and that the college 
would be in the black by the 
end of the decade. • 

The firm of accountants was 
asked to look at the finances of 
the college by the Department 
of Education and Science, 
which was worried that the 
college was not taking drastic 
enough steps to eradicate its 
debts of £3.5 million. 

Price Waterhouse said the 
college's debts could reach 
£8 million by the end of the 
decade if it did not take anion, 
which could include compul- 
sory redundancies and the 
closure of departments. 

The college is due to merge 
with the Wales Institute of 
Science and Technology by 
1990. but one of the condi- 
tions for the merger is that it 
should have cleared its debts. 

In a tough statement yester- 
day, die college said the Price 
Waterhouse report contained 
“serious, errors of feet and 
interpretation" and its meth- 
odology was questionable. 


It rejected the allegations of 
inaction, but acknowledged 
that it had financial problems 
requiring attention. 

During the 1983-84 aca- 
demic year it said it took swift 
action to cut costs, including 
freezing vacancies, seeking 
early retirements and trim- 
ming other costs. The deficit 
at the end of that year was 
£1.77 million; in 1984-1985 it ! 
had fallen to £1.25 million. 

The latest review, for 1985- 1 
86 , suggests a deficit of less ’ 
than £800,000, it says. In the 
academic year 1986-87 . the 
college hopes to break even, 
and thereafter establish a 
modest surplus which would 
be used to clear the accumu- 
lated deficit. 

The college disputes the 
projected £8 million defiat in 
the Price Waterhouse report. 

“The report rejects the 
college's projections and sub- 
stitutes a series of pessimistic 
assumptions, all of which are 
assumed to happen simulta- 
neously and continuously and 
about which Price Water- 
house assume the college 
would do nothing”, the state- 
ment says. 


Schools offered £llm 
for special projects 

By Our Education Correspondent 


Local education authorities 
were invited yesterday to 
make bids for money under 
the Government’s educational 
support grant programme for 
next year. 

The grams will cover sub- 
ject areas of books and equip- 
ment for the GCSE exam- 
ination, pilot projects to 
promote social responsibility 
among young people, and 
projects to develop speech in 
pupils aged, five to sixteen. 

Money available for those 
areas amounts to £113 mil- 
lion, while the total under 


educational support grants is 
£106 million, or 1 per cent of 
educational expenditure. That 
includes the £37 million re- 
served by the Government for 
spending on school meals 
supervision. 

Bids have to be in by 
October and the projects will 
begin next ApriL 

The Government obtained 
a change in the law to enable it 
to allocate money directly to 
educational projects after frus- 
tration with the rate-support 
grant mechanism. 


S urrogate motherhood 

New laws ‘urgently needed’ 


Urgent legislation must be 
introduced to protect the 
rights of surrogate children, 
Mr Patrick Steptoe, the Cam- 
bridge pioneer in in vitro 
.fertilization, said yesterday. ■ 

“But I feel things axe mov- 
ing so fast that perhaps we 
have gone beyond the point of 
national legislation and we 
need international legisla- 
tion", Mr Steptoe. medical 
director of Bourn Hall, Cam-' 
bridge, told an audience of 
6.000 at a national conference 
of townswomen's guilds. - 
■ He said international stud- 
ies covering surrogacy and 
follow-up studies about , the 
problems experienced by com- 
missioning couples and surro- 
gate mothers should be earned 
out as soon as possible. 

“The British medical pro- 
fession is unhappy about tak- 
ing part in surrogacy until 
proper legislation has been 
introduced” Mr Steptoe said. 

The conference called on 
the Government to introduce 
'legislation as soon as possible 
io define the status of children 
botCLto surrogate mothers. - 


Mr Steptoe said: ims is a 
matter of creating a life and 
the important product is the 
child, who must be taken care 

or. . 

He said that under present 
law 'voluntary surrogacy was 
legal but commercially ar- 
ranged surrogacy was noL 

He said women’s, groups 
should campaign for legisla- 
tion to be introduced so that 
such children would love the 

same, rights as normally con- 
ceived children. 

• The townswomen’s guilds 
urged the Government to 
prevent the shallow burial of 
radioactive waste at proposed 
sites on land in Britain. 

Delegates said the public 
must be fully informed about 
the risks of radioactive waste 
and the risks of transporting 
that waste regularly through 
towns and villages. 

General Bernard Rogers, 
the . Supreme Allied Com- 
mander, Europe (SACEUR), 
and Commander-rn-ChieC 
United States European Com- 
mand (SINCEURJ, addressed 


the conference about the role 
of Nato and Western security. 

General Rogers said that in 
recent years there had been 
more than 800 terrorist inci- 
dents in which nearly 1,000 
people were killed. 

Terrorism, he said; could be 
tackled by three main ap- 
proaches: political, economic 
and military. 

Referring to the raid by the 
United States on Libya, he 
said the message was clean 
“There can be no safe haven' 
for terrorists and for those 
nations which sponsor terror- 
ism”. 

He said Naio has protected 
Britain and Western Europe 
from war in Europe for nearly 
four decades. 

“It has rightfully been called 
the most successful peace 
movement in history.” How- 
ever, he said Nato relied on 
strong continuing support 
from Britain. 

In another debalejhe con- 
ference urged the Government 
to ensure that food manufac- 
turers restrict the use of food i 
addnives. 




The proportion in the Unit- 
ed States is about 65 per cent, 
and in Australia and New 
Zealand more than 70 per 
cent. In Europe it varies from 

37 percent in West Germany, 
to 51 per cent in France, 
59 per cent in Italy and 77 per 
cent in Spain. 

Two unusual features in 
Britain are the rapid increase 
in owner-occupation and the 
very high level of owner- 
occupation in the younger age 
groups. 

Tbe results of the survey are 
included in a book. Housing 
in Britain , by Mark Boleat, the 
association's deputy secretary- 
gen era! They show that only 
5 per cent of people are dissat- 
isfied with their housing. 

The survey also asked 
where people would go for 
services if costs were equal. 

For estate agency, building 
societies were the most popu- 
lar, with 41 per cent, followed 
by estate agents (26 per cent), 
solicitors (12 per cent) and 
banks (11 percent). 

For conveyancing, 40 per 
cent opted for solicitors. 

38 per cent for building societ- 
ies and 12 per cent for banks. 
For surveys, 48 per cent pre- 
ferred chartered surveyors and 
30 per cent building societies. 

Mr Boleat said that the 
survey showed a strong de- 
mand for housing services 
from bodies other than build- 
ing societies.

Explosion firm fined £1,000 


A firm was fined yesterday 
for allowing an inexperienced 
teenager to make safety checks 
on a coastal oil tanker which 
was swept by explosions three 
hours later, killing four men 
and injuring seventeen rescue 
workers. 

■ Knight International Sur- 
veys. of Wallasey, Merseyside, 
was ordered to pay £ 1,000 
after a Swansea Crown Court 
jury found it guilty offeiling to 
provide a competent analyst 


with proper supervision. 

Mr Andrew Hammond, 
aged IS. had been sent in place 
of his absent stepfather to 
issue gas-free safety certifi- 
cates before work started in 
the pump room of the 
Pointsman, a 1,500-ton 
tanker. 

Unknown to Mr Hammond 
when he took readings, lethal 
fumes had seeped into the area 
through a faulty manhole 
cover over a slop tank which 


should have been cleaned. 

The ship's chief engineer, 
bis assistant and two dock 
workers died in the blasts at 
Milford Haven, west Wales, 
two years ago, which hap- 
pened when a welding torch 
was lit to begin repairs. 

The jury was told that 
several firemen, who had car- 
ried out the rescue operation 
while explosions were occur- 
ring. had been commended for 
bravery.

FitzGerald 
plea on 
divorce 
poll 

The Irish Republic's Prime 
Minister made a final effort 
yesterday to persuade voters 
to back his plan to remove the 
constitutional ban on divorce 
in today's referendum, issuing 
a statement in which he 
attempted to link the issue 
with the “tragedy" in Ulster. 

Dr Garret FitzGerald's 
move came as an opinion poll 
suggested that he is heading 
for a defeat which will affect 
his personal standing and the 
stability of his minority coali- 
tion Government. 

The poll shows a remark- 
able shift of opinion in the six 
weeks since the Government 
announced its plan to hold a 
referendum to allow divorce 
on the basis of marriage 
failure and after a couple have 
lived apart for five years. A 
lead of 21 per cent in favour 
has been turned into a 9 per 
cent lead for the opponents. 
The figures, published in 
yesterday's Irish Times, were 
49 percent against, 40 per cent 
in favour and II per cent 
undecided. 

The statement from Dr 
FitzGerald showed all the 
signs of prime ministerial 
panic. It sai± “We have seen 
the tragedy on a part of our 
island of a majority saying no 
to minority rights. Ulster says 
no to its minority; can we say 
no to our people whose mar- 
riages have foiled?" 

The Government is pre- 
pared for defeat, although it 
will undermine the position of 
the Prime Minister • 

It will be of enormous 
propaganda value to Northern 
Unionists, who will say that 1 
voters in the South are not 
prepared to accommodate mi- 
nority rights, that Dublin rule 
is in fact “Rome rule” and that 
in a united Ireland no attempt 
would be made to safeguard 
tbe civil and religious liberty 
of protestanls.

Microchip 

‘killed 

80,000 

jobs’ 

By BUI Johnstone 
Technology Correspondent 

More than 80,000 jobs have 
been lost in the past two years 
because microchips have been 
used in products and produc- 
tion processes, a study pub- 
lished today says. 

The survey, conducted by 
the Policy Studies Institute 
among a sample of 1,200 
factories, indicates that more 
than half of the United 
Kingdom's manufacturers are 
using microchips in products 
and processes — two and a 
half times as many as four 
years and that they are shed- 
ding jobs. 

The study also indicates 
that the lack of skills in 
manufacturing and the poor 
level of training prevents 
those who lose their jobs from 
finding new ones. 

Tbe cost of the change has 
also forced many companies 
to curtail development plans. 
“Development costs for new 
projects can be considerable, 
particularly for applications in 
the product itself', the study 
says. 

“Difficulty in raising, and 
justifying, the money to pay 
for the investment ranks par- 
ticularly high in the minds of 
those who see scope for appli- 
cations but are not pro- 
ceeding to develop them.” 

The loss of jobs has met 
little opposition on the shop 
floor because losses have oc- 
curred through natural wast- 
age. with women losing fewer 
jobs than men, the study adds.

There was a lot at stake. How the devil was I to get 
the money into the building society before daybreak? 


Although I was accustomed to sleepless 
XJL nights, the problem gave me no rest. 
And then one evening towards midnight 
Boris, my trusty manservant, rushed into my 
chamber. 

" Count" t he cried in a fervour of excite- 
ment that was strangely uncharacteristic, 
"Abbey National is ncra open 24 hours a day". 

Deposits all day... and night. 

"As one only needs to hold a CkequeSave 
or Share Account ", he continued, “/ have 
taken the liberty of requesting an Abbeylink 
card on your behalf. 

“ The machine enables you to pay in money 
whenever it is convenient so that it's earning 
interest in your account. 

“ Should you require it , you may also take 
out between £zo and fjtjO a day . . . um . . . 
night J 

“ And the service, you will appreciate 
Count, is absolutely free” . 

I thanked Boris. Although on occasions 
he drove me bats, he had my interests at 
heart. 

I immediately ordered the carriage. 
Once the money w» safely deposited at 
Abbey National, it could no longer burn a 
hole in my pocket. 

Its free... and easy. 

I had already planned to nip' out for a 


bite and so was pleased to discover that 
the Abbeylink machine was conveniently 
situated en route. 

I was also gratified by the simplicity of 
the machine. 

Having inserted my Abbeylink card and 
keyed in my personal identification number, 
I carefully placed the money in the envelope 
supplied. 

This I then put into the machine, 
remembering Boris’ assurance that all the 
envelopes are opened in the presence of two 
branch staff to ensure verification of the 
monies deposited. 

And, safe in the knovriedge that my 
passbook would be updated accordingly, I 
placed the receipt in my wallet. 

Fzstcash. When you're in a hurry. 

Just as I had completed the transaction, 
a shaft of moonlight suddenly lit up the 
Fastcash 30 facility. 

It appeared chat this was an even 
speedier withdrawal service whereby, after 
pressing the Fastcash button, £30 would 
appear instantly. 

(This, I noted for future reference, 
would be very convenient. Waiting in 
queues always made me see red). 

Finally, I decided to check the balance 
of my account. That, I was relieved to find. 


was firmly in the black. 

I then returned to the waiting carnage 
as I had suddenly become aware of a raging 
thirst. 

Thanks to Abbey National’s Abbeylink 
machines, paying in cash would no longer be 
a pain in the neck.

Britain resigned to not 
achieving $1 billion 
in Star Wars contracts 


Mr George Younger, the 
Secretary of Defence, said 
Britain was “on course” to 
build up the anticipated level 
of .contracts from the US 
Strategic Defence Initiative, 
but would have to . keep a 
“very strong ministerial eye” 
on the pace of British 
participation. 

He told a press conference a 
day after signing the first of 
Britain's two SDI contracts, 
worth $14.3 milli on (about 


From Michael Binyon, Washington

£9.1 million), that it would 
take five years for British 
participation to build up. 

No one should expect dra- 
matic results, he said, because, 
owing to the nature of the 
programme, it could take at 
least 10 years to show that 
strategic defence is feasible. 

Mr Younger's predecessor, 
Mr Michael Hesettine, had 
called on the US to guarantee 
Britain at' least $1 billion 
(about £0.6 billion) in con- 
tracts, but Britain now accept- 
ed that was unrealistic. 

Britain's contracts . with 
Washington do not preclude 
its participation in a European 
initiative. Mr Younger said 
Britain had already held inten- 
sive talks, especially with 
West Germany, on this. 

Mr Younger was emphatic 
that British participation in 
Star Wars was limited to 
research. Both Mrs Thatcher’s 
four-point agreement with 
President Reagan, and the 
limitations of the 1972 Anti- 
Ballistic Missile Treaty, meant 
that deployment could not go- 
ahead before negotiations 


UK near to taking 
more SDI projects 

By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


The Ministry of Defence is 
dose to completing a second 
set of research contracts for 
Britahi for die American Star 
Wars programme — the Star 
* ‘ Defence Initiative. This 


tetic Di 
follows the signing, reported 
yesterday, of an agreement to 
undertake two projects in Brit- 
ain worth a total of 5143 
million (£9.4 million). 

One is called a European 
architecture study and the 
other is for a series of experi- 
ments at the Culham laborato- 
ry in Oxfordshire that could 
lead to a neutral particle beam 
weapon. 

The research on wind a 
second agreement' is dose 
concents electro-magnetic 
guns, also known as rail gns, 
and a subject referred to as 
survivability, lethality and tar- 
get-hardening. 

If a Star Wars network of 
space-based, airborne, terres- 
trial and imderwater equip- 
ment is bnflt, the number and 
types of weapons used will 
depend on two architecture 
studies. 

One, by the American De- 
partment of Defence, forms 
the largest single programme 
of the $f, 600 Dnulon which the 
United States is spending no 
SDI research over the next two 
years. 


The object of these studies is 
to design a mainly space-bused 
system to provide a shield 
against a ballistic missile at- 
tack on the North American 
continent . 

The smaller European anal- 
ysis will look at the part of the 
shield that provides missile 
protection for this region. The 
Ministry of Defence is the 
prime contractor for the Euro- 
pean study. 

Research contracts have 
been let to Britain to tap areas 
of technology in which British 
scientists are world leaders. 
The . Culham laboratory has 
nearly 20 years* experience in 
the highly-advanced field of 
fission physics. 

. Its primary research is mto 
devising a ""Amp to provide 
a limitless source of power by 
reproducing foe reactions in 
the Stm when hydrogen atoms 
fuse to release energy. In the 
process, the Culham group has 
invented devices referred as 
neutral particle beam sources. 

Under a four-year research 
project for SDI costing $43 
mnfion, foe group will assess 
whether foe devices can be 
converted into sources of parti- 
cles for a particular type of 
neutral-beam weapon. 


■with the Soviet Union. “Ours 
is a very strong position that 
we are involved in research 
and research only.” 

During his talks with Mr 
Caspar Weinberger, the Amer- 
ican Defence Secretary, Mr 
Younger strongly urged Wash- 
ington to give the Russians 
“as long as possible” to com- 
ply with the Salt 2 treaty 
before breaching its missile 
limits. 

He welcomed the destruc- 
tion of the two Poseidon 
submarines, and suggested 
that Britain wanted to see 
more old submarines de- 
stroyed so that the treaty's 
missile limits would not be 
breached when the 131st B 52 
bomber is armed with cruise 
missiles by the end of the year. 

Mr Younger’s first visit here 
as the Secretary for Defence 
came on foe eve of the 13th 
US underground nuclear test 
since Moscow announced a 
unilateral moratorium. The 
ministei, however, would not 
confirm that yesterday's test 
was the latest in a joint 
British-US venture.

By Our Foreign Staff 

Only 10 per cent of foe high- 
technology firms approached 
by foe Ministry of Defence 
win lake part in Star Wars 
contracts, according to a sur- 
vey by the Strategic Research 
Initiative presented to a semi- 
nar of businessmen and aca- 
demics in London yesterday. 

More than 500 British firms 
involved in appropriate areas 
of research and development 
were surveyed by SRI to see 
the US Strategic Defence Ini- 
tiative offered a real commer- 
cial opportunity to British 
industry. 

“More than half of the SO 
firms who responded ex- 
pressed considerable doubts 
about the commercial sense, 
contractual integrity or techni- 
cal feasibility of the 
programme,” the seminar was 
told by the SRI co-mdihaior, 
Mr Paul Walton. 

Only 3 per cent of the firms 
replied that the technology 
required was inappropriate to 
them. Yet only 10 per cent 
said they were actively seeking 
involvement in Star Wars 
work.

Shultz hands over 
$200m to Aquino 


From Keith Dalton, Manila 


Mr George Shultz, the 
American Secretary of Stale, 
yesterday handed over $200 
milli on (about £127 minion) 
in economic aid to the Philip- 
pine Government, saying he is 
convinced President Gorazon 
Aquino can solve the coun-

About 300 protesters held a

Spain’s election 
losers count 
cost of failure 

From Richard Wigg Madrid 


Spain's right-wing Opposi- 
tion tad the Basqt i National- 
ist Party have been phmged 
into internal crises as foe 
result of their poor perfor- 
mances in the general election. 

The executive of foe Basque 
Nationalist Party, which lost 
two of its eight seats in the 
Madrid Parliament to the 
Socialists, met yesterday in 
Bilbao, with leaders of rival 
wings publicly blaming each 
other for rejection by the 
voters. 

Defeat has reopened old and 
deep wounds in the autono- 
mous region’s rating party on 
whether the vote-biasing for- 
mula was more nationalism — 
“ Standing op to Madrid” — 
instead of a degree of 
collaboration. 

The Christian Democratic 
wing of Senor Mannel Fraga’s 
popular Coalition is now 
threatening to poll out, and set 
a meeting of its national 
executive for fob weekend to 
debate a possible future alone. 

Sen&r Oscar Alzaga, who 
beads a group of 21 Christian 
Democrat MP5 in foe new 
parliament, has resigned from 
the party chairmanship pend- 
ing the executive meeting, a 
move seen by many as a ploy to 
see if Sendr Fraga could be 
indneed to do the same. 

The Christian Democrats, 
whose example might be fol- 
lowed by the 12 right-wing 
Liberals who make up the 
third element- of die coalition, 
have been shaken by foe 
example of SenOr Adolfo 
Suarez, their leader when they 
all belonged to foe now defend 
Centre Democratic Party, go- 
ing to the country and getting 
the votes for a band of 19 new 
MPs. 

This is something the Chris- 
tian Democrats have timidly 
never risked doing ami it 
explains why they have an 
image Ear more r^ht-wing 
than most other European 
sister parties. With elections 
next spring in several autono- 
mous regions and big cities, all 
three elements of the coalition 
are rethinking strategies. 

The upset for the Basque 
Nationalist Party, largely at 
the twmda of foe more radical 
left-wing nationalist Herri 
Batasuna (People’s Unity) co- 
alition, tire political wing of 


Eta, raised for Senftr Jose 
Ardanza, the region’s Chief 
Minister, and the party lead- 
ers how worthwhile c on ti n ued 
collaboration with Madrid, on 
the terms the Socialists are 
willing to give, can be. 

The People’s Unity tally of 
five seats, three more than 
previously held in foe Madrid 
Parliament, is a good deal 
more complex than “votes for 
Eta”. 

The Basque region, with its 
old industries, has suffered 
more than the rest of Spain 
from the Government's re- 
structuring programme, and 
labour unrest has often been 
con tin dobs. 

There was much of the 
young unemployed's protests 
"against foe system” in foe 
««Ete, which the radical lan- 
guage of the People’s Unity 
leaders sought to exploit, ex- 
actly as Sendr Sndrez did 
elsewhere in Spain. 

The Socialists' going slow 
on devolution, in accord with 
foe party's deeply ingrained 
centralizing traditions, also 
helped foe radical nationalist 
vote. 

The “geography” of foe new 
Spanish Parliament shows a 
genera] strengthening of cen- 
trifugal political forces, ex- 
plainable perhaps because of 
the Socialist record in office. 

Besides the Basque coontry, 
nationalist forces are now 
represented in foe new Parlia- 
ment in dearer, or increased, 
strength from Catalonia 
(where the local ruling party 
achieved a 50 per cent jump in 
seats), Aragon, Valencia, the 
Canaries and Galicia. 

The Socialist Government’s 
failur e to investigate or curb 
foe activities of the GAL death 
sqnads alienated many 
Basques, if not the immigrant 
popalatim, as did the almost 
incredible action in the middle 
of the election campaign by 
Spanish national police in 
Bilbao, on orders from foe 
central government's repre- 
sentative, of seizing the coffin 
at foe Amend of an Eta man 
who had died in hospital. 

This could only benefit foe 
radicals and embarrass a 
Basque government still 
awaiting its own folly fledged 
police.

Repercussions of South African crisis 

Boesak hints at hidden catastrophe 


By Panl Vallely 

State repression and vio- 
lent* under the South. African 
emergency is far worse than 
the news seeping through to 
the rest of the world indicates, 
according to the Rev Allan 
Boesak, leader of the Dutch 
Refrained Mission Church fra: 
foe Coloured community in 
South Africa, and in the past 
one of the most outspoken 

critics ofthe apartheid system. 

Dr Boesak said that the 
Pretoria authorities were not 
merely stemming the flow of ■ 
information to the outside 
world, they were also wilfully 
distorting iL “They are lying 
through their teeth, and they 
known They did it before the 
state of emergency and they. 

are doing it even more now.” 

But Dr Boesak, who arrived 
in London from South Africa

Church split 
on calls for 
disinvestment 

By Nicholas Beeston 

Differences emerged yester- 
day within the Church of 
England over its policy to- 
wards South Africa, with the 
Church Commissioners de- 
fending there -.investments 
, there in the face of growing 
' calls for disinvestment. . 

During its animal general 

meeting, a spokesman nn:, the 
body, which controls, the 
Chinch's finances, said that 
fra the time being there was no 
question of the Church with- 
drawing its. investments in 
companies with holdings in 
South Africa. 

The spokesman also de- 
fended Church investments in 
' 2 1 huge firms which - were 
accused of paying “poverty 
wages” to black workers in a 
report released yesterday by 
the Church-backed Ethical In- 
vestments and Research In- 
formation Services. / . . 



J>r Boesak: Pretoria wilfully 
distorts foe news 
be illegal under foe state of 
emergency regulations. It 
would also break the condi- 
tions of his baQ. 

Dr Boesak has been on bail 
fra nine months feting un- 
specified charges of subver- 
sion. While awaiting trial, he 
is- not allowed to make any 
statement on economic sanc- 


tions, disinvestment, academ- 
ic and sporting isolation, or 
any of the other measures he 
has advocated in the past 

“I can give no derails, but 
the situation is far, fer worse 
than people realize," he said. 
“The authorities Jhave over- 
played their hand. They have 
entered the phase where they 
are exhausting their final op- 
tions and acting out of sheer 
panic. 

“For the first lime in the. 
history of South Africa, the 
Government is faced by a 
wave of resistance that cannot 
be stopped by violence, 
threats and intimidation.” 

He added that the tactics 
which, worked to squash the 
Mack community in the 1960s 
were now no longer working. 

Dr Boesak, who said he 
would be happy to meet the 
British Government during 
his visit, welcomed the talks' 
between Mr Oliver Tam bo, 
acting president of the African 


National Congress, and Mis 
Lynda Chalker. Minister of 
State at the Foreign Office, as 
^the first hopeful sign” from a 
Government which blacks 
had come to regard as one of 
the staunchest supporters out- 
ride South Africa ofthe apart- 
heid system. 

“I hope it means that the 
British Government is begin- 1 
ning to see the situation in 
South Africa from a different 
perspective,” he said. 

But he rejected the idea that 
Sir Geoffrey Howe, the For- 
eign Secretary, should visit 
South Africa for “talks about 
talks”. He would be wasting 
his time and “might as well 
stay at home”. 

The ANC was now dearly 
emerging as the organization 
with widespread popular sup- 
port, be said. He was critical of 
attempts by Western govern- 
ments to nominate more 
“acceptable” black leaders, 
like Chief Gatsha ButhelezL

COMMENTARY 






Geoffrey Smith 


Why has not more attention 
been paid in the conn try to 
President Reagan's remark- 
able speech on disarmament at 
Glassboro last week? The 
most obvious explanation is 
that it is rather difficult to 
know exactly what to make of 
tL 

Here was the President 
responding in most positive 
fashion to Mr Gorbachov's 
latest disarmament proposals, 
jnst three weeks after indicat- 
ing that the US was untikeJhy to 
abide by the Salt 2 treaty after 
the end of the year. 

Then it was being said that 
Mr Reagan had given up hope 
of an arms control -agreement. 
Now he is speaking of n 
possible "iuniing point in the 
effort to make oars a safer and 
more peaceful world”. 

Tbs President certainly 
does not do things by halves. 
He has an instinct for rhetori- 
cal overkill, which is liable on 
occasion to be as perplexing Co 
his friends as to his adversar- 
ies. It is not even as if Mr 
Gorbachev's proposals were 
now consistent with Mr 
Reagan's vision of how. to 
protect America. 

“We cannot accept these 
particular proposals without 
change,” the President de- 
clare,- “but it appears that the 
Soviets have began to make a 
serious effort” This implies 
that their ideas ace at least 
moving In the right direction. 
Yet an integral part of the 
Soviet package is that the 
Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty 
should be strengthened so as 
effectively to prevent, or at 
least to delay for many years, 
the deployment of SDI. 

Mr Gorbachov is offering 
deep cuts in strategic midear 
arum, provided tint the US 
agrees to extend to at least 15 
years the notice that either 
side would have to give before 
withdrawing from - the ABM 
treaty. This would permit SDI 
research to go ahead, bnt liot 
deployment so long as the 
treaty was Id force. 


Reaffirming faith 
in SDI concept 


Yet elsewhere In the 
Gbssboro speech Mr Reagan 
was reaffirming his huth in the 
most ambitions concept of 
SDI. Today's research, he 
claimed, “might one day en- 
able ns to put In space a shield 
that missiles conld not pene- 
trate — a shield that cookl 
protect ns from nuclear mis- 
siles jnst as a roof protects a 
family from rain”. 

That does not sound like die 
lawgn»g g of a man who is 
contemplating a compromise 
on SDI deployment So there 
is a logical inconsistency hi a 
speech which at the same time 
refers encouragingly to. pro-, 
posals that depend on sack a 

compromise. 

Why then did Mr Reagan 
say what he did? The unchari- 
table view wQl be that he has 
not taken on hoard thefaH 
meaning either of Mr 
Gorbachov's proposition, or of 
his own words, or possibly 
both. It is not, after all, the 
first time that the President 
hat rfimg firmly to incompati- 
ble objectives. 

Bnt it is too easily assmned, 
especially oa fids side of the 
Atlantic, that such an accom- 
plished politician does not 
know what Ire is doing. I 
believe that th e Pre sident was 
concerned not with the s pecif- 
ics of negotiation bnt with 
sending* pofitical signal. 

When subjected to dose 
logical scrutiny the speech 
does not hold together. I 
suspect, however, that i t had a 
broader purpose- The virtual 
abrogation of Sait 2 did not 
have a favourable reception 
either in the US or abroad. It 
upset his «1B ett and it made 
many Americans sceptical of 
his intentions. It therefore pot 
him on the wrong side p©if!- 
cally of the asms control issue. 

Sending a message 
loud and clear . 


1 What he. has been 

do now has been to correct 


jug out a message load and 
clear that he is stfll comitted to 
the pursuit of -arms control, 
that he wants a second summit 
with Mr Gorbachov and that, 
he remains enlisted in the 
ranks of the optimists. 

It is a message directed no 
doubt in part to the Soviet 
Union: Mr Reagan does not 
want the Geneva negotiations 
to collapse. Bnt It is alss 
presumably directed to toe 
American -voters who will be 
going to the potis in toe mid- 
term elections in November. 

This does not mem that he 
& insincere. Ait- his speech 
should be taken as an expres- 
sion of goodwill, nofTas an 
indication of the progress tbaf- 
ites been made; Whether -Mr 
Reagan appreciates it or not, 
toe major obstacles stiff. -®e 
ahead.

Israeli Cabinet finds 
way to safeguard 
intelligence secrecy 


By nine votes to one, 
Israel's inner Cabinet agreed 
yesterday on a way to prevent 
any meaningful investigation, 
into the workings of Shin Bet, 
the country's intelligence, 
agency. Jt meant dismissing: 
the agency's director, Mr 
Avraham Shalom, &nd grant- 
ing him immunity from any 
future prosecution. 

The result is not a white- 
wash, but a procedural device 
to silence. -everybody con- 
cerned so that no evidence can 
be forced out prhich might 
endanger national security.- ■; 

In order to emasculate any 
possible inquiry, the help oP 
President Herzog had to-be 
obtained. The President has. 
largely ceremonial powers, but 
he does have the right of 
granting amnesty and, accord- 
ing to one reading of the law, 
he is entitled to grant this to 
someone who has yet to be 
tried and convicted. 

This; interpretation was, in 
fact, successfully challenged a 
year ago by the then Attorney 
General, Mr Yitzhak Zamir, 
who insisted that there could 
be amnesty without a prior 
conviction. He gave this rul- 
ing when members of the 
“Jewish Underground" were 
put on trial for bombing 
Palestinian leaders and Arab 
targets! Since their conviction, 
several: of the 25 who were 
sentenced have been released 
from Jail with the help of 
presidential clemency. 

In Che case of Shin Bet, the 
amnesty has been granted 


From Ian Murray, Jerusalem 

specifically to Mr Shalom, 
who has been in charge of the 
agency since 1980 after a 
distinguished career as an 
undercover agent He had 
reportedly offered his resigna- 
tion several weeks ago in an 
effort to end publicity about 
the affair, but this offer had 
been turned down . by Mr 
. Shimon Peres, the Prime Min- 
ister, who has a very high 
personal regard for him. 

In offering his resignation, 
Mr Shalom has in no ray 
confessed to having ordered 
the murder of two Palestinian 
bus - hijackers, or of subse- 
quently engineering a cover- 
up of the truth before two* 
official = inquries. He has - 
stepped down only because 
the publicity given to his 
name has meant that he has 
lost his cover — and thus his 
usefulness - as head of what is - 
meant to be a -top secret 
agency. 

The tome kind of amnesty 
has been granted to five other 
Shin Bet staff, including two 
legal advisers who were in- 
volved in preparing the case 
for the two official inquries. 
These five; - however, keep 
their jobs as they are unknown 
to the outside workL 

For the moment no new 
appointment has been made 
to run the agency and there 
will certainly be no publicity 
when the post is eventually 
filled. Mr Shalom, however, is 
expected to be given a senior 
security job in the Prime - 
Minister’s private office and 


The events which turned a 
Palestinian hijacking into an 
.Israeli- political scandal un- 
folded as follows:- 
Ajpril 12 1984: No 300 bus 
hijacked by four Palestinians 
to the Gaza Strip. 

April 13; Two hijackers, cap- 
oned:'. after the bus was 
stormed by Israeli troops, die 
in Shin Bet custody. Press 
photographs show the official 
version that the two were 
seriously injured to be untrue. 
.Official inquiry set np under 
Mqjop-GeneraJ Meir Zorea. 
May 28: Zorea inquiry finds 
the two “died at a later stage” 
and recommends a judicial 
inquiry. 

August 6 1985: Report of 
commission by state attorney 
Yoria Blattman recommends 
that the commander of Israeli 
troops at the hijack scene. 


Brigadier-General Yitzhak 
Mordechai, should be tried for 
using undue force, and for 
improper conduct in treat- 
ment of the prisoners. ‘

Russia admits to 
Aids victims 




From Diana Geddes, Paris 


c The Institute of Virology in 
Moscow is currently treating 
12 Aids patients. Professor 
Victor Zhdanov, head of toe 
institute, has told a three-day 
international conference on 
toe Acquired Immune Defi- 
ciency Syndrome which ended 
here yesterday. 

It is believed to be the first 
lime that a Soviet figure has 
admitted the existence of the 
disease in toe Soviet Union. 
Professor Zhdanov reported 
that three other centres in 
Russia were treating Aids 
patients. 

The first Aids case in the 
Soviet Union — that of a 14- 
year-old girl — bad been 
identified in September 1984, 
Professor Zhdanov said. All 
blood donors were now being 
systematically tested far toe 
virus. 

A glimmer of hope in the 
attempt to find an eventual 
treatment for Aids was given 
by an American team who 
reported on research into 
bone-marrow transplants, 
lymphocyte transfusions and 
an anti-viral drug. 

Dr Anthony Fauci of the 
National Institute of Allergy 
and Infectious Disease at Ben 
thesda, Maryland, cautiously 
described their results as “an 
important step in toe direction 
of treatment, but by no means 
a breakthrough”. 

. Dr Hand told the confer- 
ence, attended by nearly 2.000 
scientists, doctors and others 
from throughout the world, 
that one Aids patient, aged 34, 
who had been treated over 10 
months, had improved suffi- 
ciently to be able to return to 
fob-lime work. 

Another two patients, aged 
26 and 31, had died, however. 


All had received bone-marrow 
transplants from healthy, 
identical twin brothers with 
no evidence of the disease. 

Professor Claude Griscelli, 
of the Necker Children's Hos- 
pital in Paris, spoke of increas- 
ing concern over the contain-, 
ination of unborn babies by 
mothers carrying the virus. .In 
May this year, 69 Aids cases 
among babies had been diag- 
nosed in Europe and 289 in 
the United States, he said. 

Of the 59 babies born to 
mothers carrying toe Aids 
virus, who bad been examined 
by the Necker Hospital over 
toe past. nine months, 13 were 
found to have the disease, 
including four who had al- 
ready died; 14 appeared free of 
the virus at toe age qf ax 
months; and the remaining 29 
were still too young fora firm 
diagnosis to be made, Profes- 
sor Griscelli said. 

Forty-two had been bom to 
mothers who were drug ad- 
dicts. 10 to African or Indian 
mothers and one to a bisexual 
partner, while the remaining 
three were of unknown 
parentage. 

There was' good news for 
policemen who are threatened 
with being bitten by criminals 
claiming to have Aids. A study 
of 180 people caring for Aids 
patients in Canada showed 30 
had been scratched or bitten 
but none had been infected. • 

Dr Halphan Mahler, direc- 
tor-general of the World 
Health Organization, reported 
there were now an estimated 
30,000 to 100,000 Aids cases 
worldwide. Half would die 
within a year of being diag- 
nosed, he said. A further 5-10 
million people were believed 
to be infected and capable of 
transmitting the virus. 


Athens fears grow of 
new terrorist attack 

- From Mario Modiano, Athens 


The- Greek authorities are 
stepping' up security precau- 
tions after receiving intelli- 
gence from 'several sources 
about ah. impending attack by 
Middle Eastern -terrorists 
against British, American and. 
Italian targets in Athens. 

Security was tightened a 
week ag o at British premises 
in Athens aLtoe requestoftoe 
British' Embassy. Italian 
premises hcneajre also heavily 
guarded after last -Thursday’s, 
bomb attack against the Ital- 
ian Chamber of Commerce 
andthediscovery ofabombat 
the Xrafiah consulate.- 
Since Sunday the alert has 
jjeen extended to ^possible. 
Aineffcah' tar^fa. \ . , 


The alert came as the Greek 
Government redefined its po- 
sition on international terror- 
ism after causing many raised 
. eyebrows in Washington, and 
other Western capitate. 

- A government spokesman 
said Greece condemned acts 
of violence committed by 
liberation movements outside 
the territories they claimed, 
especially if they involved 
innocent victims, - 

The Greek Government's 

rhetoric on the subject seems 

to be at variance with its 
practice. Western counter-ter- 

rorism experts 5 say they re- 
ceive the fullest co-operation 
from ifie Greet authorities. - 


can expect to remain there 
after Mr Yitzhak Shamir takes 
over as bead of the govern- 
ment in October. 

Politically, the outcome has 
brought predictable angry crit- 
icism from the left and satis- 
fied comments from the ri 
inside the Knesset 
Sbulamit Aloni. of the 
Citizens’ Rights Movement 
was bitter ai toe way the 
President had been used to 
solve what she considered was 
a political problem. “Mr Peres 
will become known as toe man 
who turned toe role of law into 
toe rule of rulers,” she said. 

On toe right Mrs Guela 
Cohen, of toe Tehiya Party, 
welcomed toe fact that finally 
there was an end to efforts to 
use the law wrongfully to 
investigate the Shin Bet and 
the Mossad (secret service) — 
organizations which, she said, 
a country in a permanent state 
of war needed in order to exist. 

Ultimately there is unlikely 
to be any immediate trouble 
for the Government in toe 
Knesset, with toe Ukud coali- 
tion happy with what has 
happened and toe Labour 
Party uneasy but unwilling' to 
make an issue out of some- 
thing where public sympathy, 
according to opinion polls, lies 
with the secret services. 

The one thing to emerge 
from the affair so far is a new 
special committee of jurists 
and security personnel who 
will be required to learn toe 
lessons of what happened on 
this occasion and to set up 
future procedures of operation 
for Shin Bet. 

Since toe whole cover-up 
was originally exposed by 
press photographs that were 
taken at the time of toe 
hijacking, it is thought highly 
probable that the new com- 
mittee will insist on less co- 
operation being given to toe 
media fn.future incidents.

Blow to Alabama liberals 


From Christopher Thomas, Washington 


The Wallace era In Ala- 
bama has abruptly ended, 
ushering in a new pattern of 
politics that could have wider 
repercussions for racial har- 
mony in the state. 

Alter a bitterly-fought pri- 
mary battle, Mr Charles 
Graddlck, a conservative who 
has the unsolicited endorse- 
ment of the Ku Klnx Klan, 
narrowly won the Democratic 
no minati on on Tuesday for 
governor in November's elec- 
tions.

H was time to retire, hoped to 
establish a dynasty through 
his protege, Mr Bill Baxley, 
the state's Lieutenant-Gover- 
nor. Mr Baxley's defeat took 
most people by surprise. 

Mr Graddlck, Alabama's 
attorney-general, declared he 
had God on his side and had 
won through “blood, sweat, 
tears and money”. He is likely 
to defeat Mr Guy Hunt, the 
Republican contender. 

There has not been a Repub- 
lican governor since Recon- 
struction. Democrats have 


held their grip on state offices 
for more than a decade by 
creating a coalition of blacks 
and whites. 

But Mr Graddlck virtually 
shunned the black vote. In- 
deed, some Macks and liberal 
whites accused him of promot- 
ing racial divisions. Mr 
Baxley, by contrast, courted 
the Mack vote. 

Mr Graddick won by cap- 
turing the support of regis- 
tered Republicans, although a 
fierce legal battle was laun- 
ched by his opponents to try to 
limit rating to registered 
Democrats. 


Zimbabwe 
seizes 
customs 
men again 

Firm Jan Raath 
Harare 

Disconsolate lawyers yester- 
day returned to toe High 
Court here to make their next 
move in an apparently futile 
bid to secure toe release from 
detention of two high-ranking 
customs officers. 

Mr John Austin, aged 36, 
and Mr Kenneth Harper, aged 
43, were driven to Harare's 
central police station late on 
Tuesday after a five-hour siege 
by secret service agents of toe 
lawyer's office in which they 
had locked themselves. 

The siege began shortly after 
toe supreme court confirmed 
that the latest order for their 
detention was illegal. They 
were released only to be 
trailed by Central Intelligence 
Organization officers with 
new instructions for their 
detention without triaL 
After several angry confron- 
tations with CIO officers, the 
attorney representing toe men 
allowed a senior intelligence 
agent into toe locked office. 

He persuaded Mr Austin 
and Mr Harper to return to 
Chikurubi prison, saying he 
had been instructed that they 
were to be re-arrested immedi- 
ately for spying and being 
involved in subversive 
activities. 

Yesterday the two men won 
an injunction from Mr Justice 
Barnabas Somalia ordering 
Mr Emmerson Munangwa. 
the Minister for Security, .to 
state why toe new orders — 
which their lawyers have not 
yet seen — should not again be 
regarded as illegal 
Failure to answer adequate- 
ly by tomorrow morning will 
result in another release order. 

Since late February, the 
Zimbabwe judiciary has ruled 
in many cases that there has 
been insufficient grounds for 
detention. Such detentions are 
rapidly becoming toe nation's 
most controversial human 
rights issue.

During the next session, the Government in- 
tends to introduce aTape Levy.This presumes that 
everyone who buys blank tape will be guilty of an 
offence against copyright law. 

In fact, it’s worse than that Not only is guilt 
presumed, but sentence is passed. 

Even if you only use blank tapes to record 
your own voice or your own programs, you are 
about to be fined. 

If you do use tape to keep your records in 
mint condition,you may technically be infringing 
our outdated copyright laws. But are you really 
offending the spirit of those laws, especially since 


you’ve already paid for the right to listen to your 
music any number of times? 

A Tape Levy would be a fine which will cost 
you as much as 20% on top of the price you pay 
for every blank audio tape. 

And the proceeds of the levy will go mainly 
to rich record companies and prosperous music 
publishers.

against crime in 1983. 

The executed prisoners 
were all men aged between 19 


and 35. They were lulled by 
China's method ofa bullet in

murderers. Others were guilty 
of rape or armed robbery. A

Actress Raquel Welch raises her arms 
In victory after being awarded SHU? 
million {about £6.9 million) for unfair 
dismissal -from the film Cannery Row 
(Renter reports from Los Angeles). 

The 45-year-old actress, who rose to 
fame as a bikini-clad cave woman in 
One Million Years B.CL, contended that 
Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) exec- 
utives replaced her with Debra Winger 
in the John Steinbeck classic because 
they needed a scapegoat for the film's 


budget overruns. 

“It was devastating to me,” she 
tearfully told the Los Angeles jury 
during the four-week hearing. “I felt my 
professional life was over.” 

The studio, which has said it will 
appeal, maintained she was dimissed 
from the 1980 film, which also starred 
Nick Nolte, because she refused to 
follow instructions and insisted on 
applying her make-up at home. 


Paraguay police attack exile 


Asuncion (Renter) — Police 
at Asuncion airport beat up 
the exiled Paraguayan opposi- 
tion leader, Senor Domingo 
.Laino, as he made his fifth 
•attempt to return home, and 
'attacked die former US Am- 
bassador, Mr Robert White, 
who was escorting him, wit- 
nesses said. 

“Laino fell to the floor and 
even then he was subjected to 


a brutal beating. I think he had 
two broken ribs,” Seftor 
Roberto Asiain, a Uruguayan 
deputy also accompanying the 
exile, told reporters at the 
airport 

Mr White said he, too, had 
been beaten with truncheons 
by plainclothes police. 

He flew with Senor Laino 
from Montevideo as the exile 
tried to return to Paraguay in 


defiance of a ban imposed by 
the Government of President 
Alfredo Stroessner. 

Senor Laino was exiled in 
1982. He has made four 
previous attempts to return 
home to stand trial on charges, 
including that of having con- 
tacts with the guerrillas who 
killed the former Nicaraguan 
leader, Anasiasio Soraoza. in 
Asuncion in 1980. 


Sri Lankan 
peace plan 
backed 
by Gandhi 

From Vyitba Yapa 
Colombo 

President Jayewardene of 
Sri Lanka yesterday told op- 
position representatives that 
Mr Rajiv Gandhi, the Indian 
Prime Minister, was happy 
about the island's proposal for 
devolution — put forward in a 
bid to end the country's 
continuing unrest. 

At a conference with repre- 
sentatives of eight political 
parlies. Mr Jayewardene said 
Mr Gandhi had written to 
him, saying he hoped the 
proposal would be imple- 
mented in fuIL 

Mr Jayewardene said the 
unit of devolution would be 
the provincial council with an 
elected chief minister. The 
port of Trincomaiee, in the 
eastern province, however, 
would be excluded from any 
area of authority. 

He said the Bill to give 
legislative power for the pro- 
vincial council would be in 
effect shortly. 

"Sri Lanka is a mighty 
racial, mighty religious coun- 
try. Let the past suspicions of 
these different groups be now 
forgotten to secure a better 
fixture for all,” the President 
appealed to the opposition 
parties. 

He asked them to submit 
any suggestions about the 
proposal to him by July 1 1. 

Mr Jayewardene announced 
that a political parties' confer- 
ence would be held daily from 
July 15 to July 18 to study the 
devolution proposal in detail. 

Just hours before 
yesterday's conference. 16 ci- 
vilians were lulled and 57 
people injured in three sepa- 
rate landmine explosions in 
the Northern and Eastern 
provinces. 

All those who died were 
travelling in a van, belonging 
to the assistant government 
agent's office, in the Trinco-" 
malee district. -•••' 


Garcia says troops 
may have killed 
up to 40 prisoners 


lima (Renter) — President 
Garda said Peruvian troops 
may have shot dead up to 40 
Maoist guerrilla inmates who 
surrendered after prison riots 
last week. 

He ordered the arrest of 
those responsible, but said in a 
television speech on the mili- 
tary action to crush rims at 
three i-ima jails that his 
Government had to prevent 
excesses. 

"Initial investigations imply 
'that in the prison of Luri- 
gancho an undetermined num- 
ber of prisoners, maybe 30 or 
40, were shot dead by mem- 
bers of the Sepablican Guard 
once they had surrendered,” 
the President said. 

"I have ordered the impris- 
onment and trial iff the chiefs, 
officials and personnel of the 
Republican Guard who, after 
the surrender, went on brutally 
to annihilate the subversives.” 

The military has said 124 
alleged members of the Maoist 
Sendero Lnminoso (Shining 
Path) guerrilla group were 
lulled in the battle to retake 
Lurigancho jaiL 

Unofficial estimates said up 
to 300 gnerrilla inmates died 
in the fighting for control of 
Lurigancho mid the island 
prison of El Fronton. Western 
diplomats said they had beard 
estimates of L000 dead. 

Opposition sources said all 


Sendero guerrillas in Lori- 
gancho had died. They said 
the operation was conducted 
by commandos from the Army 
and the Republican Guard, a 
14, 000-strong paramilitary 
unit that protects borders, 
state installations and prisons. 

President Garda ordered a 
military inquiry into possible 
excesses at Lurigancho after 
heavy pressure from Socialist 
International, a world group- 
ing of Socialist and Soda! 
Democratic parties meeting in 
Lima at the time of the 
rebellious. 

A left-wing opposition lead- 
er, Senator Javier Diez 
Canseco, has accused the mili- 
tary of executing about 60 
inmates at Lurigancho after 
they surrendered. 

The Government charged 
that Sendero, whose six-year 
insurgency has cost almost 
8,000 lives, staged the prison 
riots to sully the image of Peru 
during the Socialist Interna- 
tional congress. 

In Ayacucho province, the 
Andean zone where the rebel 
group started^ Shining Path 
guerrillas hong effigies of 
President Garda and soldiers 
with signs promising revenge. 

More than 7,500 people 
have been killed since the 
Shining Path began trying to 
overthrow Peruvian govern- 
ments six years ago. 


Voters in Sicily reject 
anti-Mafia crusaders 


From Peter Nichols, Rome 


Five members of the li- 
man anti-Mafia commission 
— including the chairman, 
deputy chairman and secre- 
tary — were among the defeat- 
ed candidates in Sunday's 
regional elections in Sicily. 

C According to Signor Angelo 
Ganazzoli, the Socialist who 
presided over the commis- 


sion, his defeat was explicitly 
due to his anti-Mafia activi- 
ties. Even members of his own 
pariy pul obstacles in his way. 

Other candidates outside 
the commission who had cam- 
paigned against the Mafia also 
did badly. Signor Alfredo 
Galasso, a Communist judge, 
failed to win a seat. 


Yugoslav party congress 


Chorus girls vie with tired slogans 


Rom Richard Bassett 
Belgrade 

The 13 th Yugoslav Commu- 
nist Party congress opened 
here yesterday with all the 
cumbersome rhetoric associat- 
ed with established Eastern 
European congress rituals. 

Honrs were spent introduc- 
ing and applauding delegates 
and when finally the party 
chairman, Mr Vidoje Zark- 
oric, delivered his opening 
report — a turgid 60-page 
speech —it bronght little joy to 
those who hoped the congress 
would express many Yugo- 
slavs’ desire for radical 
change. 

Although the speech was 
critical of the country's eco- 
nomic performance; it under- 
lined the difficulties of radical 
surgery. 

No effective remedies were 
proposed, though bureaucracy 
and nationalism were singled 
out as scapegoats for some of 
the country’s economic ills. 

Despite rousing s inging of 
"The Internationale”, led by a 
group of chorus girls, which 
initiated the day's proceed- 
ings, the image which remains 
on the nation's television 
screens is of prosperous, well- 
turned-out party officials 
whose ranks of sombre dark 
suits are only briefly interrupt- 
ed by the khalti-and-gold uni- 
forms of the Yugoslav general 
staff.

and its Balkan neighbours in 
recent years. 

Mr Dovrivoje VMic, a mem- 
ber of the Praesfctimn of the 
Central Committee and a for- 
mer ambassador to . Britain, 
complained to the congress 
that Greek pdUtidans were 
interfering in Yugoslavia's in- 
ternal affairs. 

This was a reference to a 
statement earlier this month 
by Mr Andreas Papamhreou, 
the Greek Prime Minister, 


denying the existence, not only 
in Greece bat also in Yugosla- 
via, of a Macedonian minority. 

Macedonians constitute one 
of Yugoslavia's republics and 

are~;Tecognized here as a 
distinct nation. Mr Papand- 
reou's speech drew a formal 
protest from. Belgrade and Mr 
Vatic yesterday accused Alhr 
ens of a “flagrant attack” on 
Yugoslavia's constitutional or- 
der. . 

Having dealt with the 
Greeks, Mr Vktic now tinned 
to the Bulgarians. accusing 
them of. also denying the 
existence of the Macedonian 
nation and expressing territo- 
rial aspirations towards Yugo- 
slavia. 

But the congress reserved its 
most hostile words yesterday 
for the Albanians. In Tirana, 
capital of Albania, there were 
not only territorial aspira- 
tions, “unconcealed” accord- 
ing to Mr Vidic, but also open 
support for the counter-revolu- 
tionary Albanian separatists 
within Yngos-lavia’s autono- 
mous region of Kosovo. 

Tirana has repeatedly and 
formally denied any desire for 
territorial aggrandisement at 
Yngpslavia’s expense. 

Tirana, for its part, has 
accused Belgrade of delaying 
construction of the railway 
between Scutari and Titograd, 
linking Albania with the rest 
of Europe by rail, but the 
Yugoslavs deny putting eco- 
nomic pressure on Tirana. 


Rebels accept 
Delhi deal 
on Mizoram 

From Kuldip Nayar 
Delhi 

The 25-year-old insurgency 
in Mizoram, m north-east 
India, bordering Bangladesh 
and Burma, came to an end 
when the insurgents’ represen- 
tative group, the Mizo Nation- 
al Front, signed an agreement 
on Wednesday with the ruling 
Congress (I) Party in New 
Delhi. 

Mr LaWenga, the MNF 
chief, who was living in exile 
in London until recently, will 
head foe interim coalition 
with foe Congress (I) Party. 

Under the deal, Mizoram 
will be given the status of a 
fully-fledged state, India’s 
twenty-third, having a "sepa- 
rate governor and a separate 
High Court. The MNF rank 
and file, who have been 
defying the Indian security 
forces so for, will lay down , 
their arms and close their 
underground headquarters in 
the Arkan hills at the junction 
of India, Burma and Bangla- 
desh. . 

The coalition will have 
more Congress than MNF 
ministers, since the Congress 
(I) Party has 23 members in a 
house of 33. The assembly is 
not being dissolved for- foe 
time bong. The present Chief 
Minister, .Mr Lahhanbwala. is 
vet to decide whether he wift 
join the coafftion. 

Mr LaWenga, who signed 
foe agreement with Mr Arjun 
Singh, theCongress (!) Party’s 
vice-president, has appealed 
ip foe .Mizo underground to 
lay doivn- its anns. 


Kenya and Tanzania 
put accent on trade 

From Charles Harrison, Nairobi 


A three-day state visit to 
Kenya this week by President 
Mwinyi of Tanzania has illus- 
trated how relations between 
foe two countries have im- 
proved since 1983, when foeir 
joint border was reopened., 
after being closed by Tanzania 
for more than six years. 

Mr Mwinyi succeeded Dr 
Julius Nyerere, who resigned 
from foe presidency last No- 
vember. He has had formal 
talks here with President Moi 
of* Kenya, and foe two leaders 
emphasized their wish' for 



President Mwinyi: toured 
industries and farms. 


continued close links and for 
stronger trade relations. 

The two leaders emphasized 
their commitment to East 
African co-operation, though 
there is no practical hope of 
reviving the East African 
Community which linked 
their countries with Uganda 
until 1977. It was disagree- 
ment about foe operation of 
the Community, with Tanza- 
nia accusing Kenya of domi- 
nating East African trade, 
which led to its collapse in 
1977. 

Tanzania still has serious 
financial problems which are 
limiting its ability to import 
manufactured goods from Ke- 
nya. But Tanzania's prospects 
have improved following 
agreement with the Interna- 
tional Monetary Fund for 
substantial assistance in re- 
turn for a restructuring of the 
country's economy. . 

As part of foe pa cka ge, foe 
Tanzanian shilling has been 
halved in value within a 
matter of weeks (to 60 shil- 
lings to foe pound sterling) 
and farther devaluations are 
expected.

SPECTRUM 



T he Taoiseach was in a 
burry, rushing out of a 
meeting with visiting 
newspaper correspon- 
dents to be in time for 
the start of that day's parliamenta- 
ry business. He delayed long 
enough to reveal that he had 
dreamt the night before that he 
had overslept, eventually rising to 
speak wearing only his pyjamas. 

h is difficult to think of many 
other Prime Ministers who would 
cheerfully tell this story to a dutch 
of complete strangers, and with so 
little guile. Garret FitzGerald 
bustled away, leaving a roomful of 
open-mouthed guests behind him. 
lire Irish electorate have had 
longer than the journalists to get 
used to Garret (as he is universally 
known); whether they vote for him 
or not, the first thing most of them 
will say about him is that be is so 
extraordinarily nice. “In a room", 
someone wrote of him recently, 
“women feel safe with him, but 
wish they didn’t" 

He has spent a good deal of time 
in the later part of his career 
suppressing his niceness and ac- 
cessibility in order to seem less of 
a garrulous, absent-minded pro- 
fessor and more of a tough and 
wordly statesman. On television, 
be has learnt to control his 
tendency to bob his BriUo-pad 
head of hair up and down in time 
with a list of rapid-fire points. The 
high-fliers of the Dublin civil 
service are on hand to ensure that 
he does not appear in public 
wearing odd shoes. He once did so 
during a general election cam- 
paign to the predictable delight of 
his opponents; campaign press 
conferences were devoted to chew- 
ing over the significance of this 
engaging error. 

His ima^ cm more serious 
matters has improved with time. 
He now makes fewer forced errors 
and his long-term aims appear as 
part of a more coherent strategy 
than they once did. That is by no 
means the same as saying that the 
ruling Fine Gael-Labour coalition 
can survive the next election, 
which must be fought by Novem- 
ber 1987 at the latest and - if 
today's divorce referendum goes 
against the government's pro- 
posed liberalization — may well 
come much sooner. The last major 
opinion poll found Charles 
Haughey’s Fianna Fail leading the 
government by 12 points (al- 
though sti ll felling short of an 
overall majority). 

FitzGerald celebrated his rixti- 


an election tomorrow, he would at 
least go down as the man who 
signed the Hillsborough Agree- 
ment with Margaret Thatcher. His 
“constitutional crusade” has fal- 
tered since its overconfident 
launch but nevertheless regained 
some ofits momentum. Fine Gael 
holds the largest number of Dail 
(parliament) seats in its history 
and the party has been vigorously 
overhauled. 

But he has not fought his way 
out of the vicious economic circle 
which has crippled several recent 
governments. Massive govern- 
ment borrowing requires heavy 
taxation to finance it; breaking out 
of the circle has pushed up 
unemployment although inflation 
has fallen. No section of the 
electorate is happy. "Seventeen 
per cent of them are out of a job", 
said one dispirited Cabinet minis- 
ter the other day. "and the other 
83 per cent think they're 
overtaxed." 

A computer programmed to 
deliver the perfect political pedi- 
gree could hardly have improved 
on FitzGerald's parentage- Both 
father and mother were fervent 
nationalists; Desmond, a poet, 
had been bom in London to Irish 
emigrant parents and Mabel, who 
had worked as a temporary secre- 
tary to George Bernard Shaw, 
came from northern protestant 
stock. Both of them were inside 
the O’Connell Street Post Office in 
the Easter Rising of 1916. 


F itzGerald has not been 
shy of using his impecca- 
bly republican-plus- 
northem-connections 
ancestry as an 
advertisment for his willingness to 
understand northern unionists. 
To date, few northern unionists 
seem to have taken the bait. 

Desmond went into politics, 
eventually serving as foreign min- 
ister in the Free State government 
Garret grew up in a bohemian 
household filled with talk of 
poetry and politics; T.S. Eliot and 
W.B. Yeats would come to stay. 
Ezra Pound wrote a Canto about 
FitzGerald senior. By the time 
Garret began earning his own 
living, the literary aristocracy had 
faded and his energies went into 
something more modem; airline 
schedules. 

He made his name at Act 
L ingus before becoming an eco- 
nomic consultant and journalist 
His passion for facts, and particu- 
larly numerical ones, is legendary. 
I once travelled on a FitzGerald 
campaign on which journalists 
were warned by party officials, on 
pain of expulsion from the earn- 


ed! birthday last February and 
mat year will mark 10 years at the 
head of his party. The verdict on 
his leadership is mixed. If he lost

poll statistics in front of him. They 
had discovered to their cost that 
the arithmetical digression which 
would then engross their party 
leader could wreck a whole day's 
schedule. 

He entered the Dail in 1969 at 
die age of 43 and became Foreign 
Minister in the Fine Gael-Labour 
coalition four years later. He 
excelled at the intricate manoeu- 
vres of bargaining in Brussels, 
where many Irish form incomes 
are at stake. People began to 
realize that the teddy bear exterior 
concealed not only a formidable 
brain but a considerable reserve of 
determination. He was ultimately 
judged so communitaire that dur- 


ing one search for a President of 
the EEC Commission, the British 
asked FitzGerald if he would be 
interested in seeing his name put 
forward. He was not; the Fine 
Gael leadership was already in 
sight. 

He took over from foe grey, 
cautious Liam Cosgrdve in 1977;' 
two years later, Charles Haughey 
acceded to the leadership of 
Fianna FaiL The double act is still 
going, three elections later. It took 
FitzGerald some time to acclimar 
tize to the move from the rather 
gentler world of foreign affairs and 
Euro-bureaucracy to the tougher 
demands of leadership. He was 
seen for some time as a backroom 
boy unsuited to parliamentary cut 


and thrust, particularly against an 
opponent as stylish as Haugfrey. 

He made an idiot of himself 
with opaque remarks about 
Haughey when he became his 
party’s leader: tie referred to a 
"flawed pedigree" and said that 
Haughey’s . motives could - be 
"judged only by God". This was 
ail taken as a maladroit reference 
to Haughey’s role in the IRA arms 
trial of foe early 1970s but 
FitzGerald has never adequately' 
explained his words. He stumbled 
into a gabbled commitment to a 
referendum on adding a ban on 
abortion to the constitution, an 
error which was violently unpopu- 
lar with Fme Gad's social liberals 
and which caused endless seman- 


tic zig-zagging and wriggling dur- 
ing the eventual bitter campaign 
on the amendment 
For a time, Haughey rode high 
on a combination of international 
borrowing and euphoria created 
by his successful summit meeting 
with Mrs Thatcher about North- 
ern Ireland in December 1980. But 
events swung bade in FitzGerald’s 
favour. As the economy deterio- 
rated, he slowly gained the initia- 
tive with policies that began to 
look mare and more necessary. 
Amid the bitterness of the hunger 
strike in the north, Haughey’s 
quick fix with Maggie no longer 
looked so good. 

FitzGerald's periods in govern- 
ment have concentrated on three 
targets: social reform. Northern 
Ireland and the economy. His re- 
election will depend almost entire- 
ly on economic satisfaction and 
performance. The government's 
best defence is that its medicine 
needs time to work and that no 
electorate in its senses would want 
a return to the inflation of remit 
yean; its weakness is that sucoess 
against inflation is quickly forgot- 
ten and the opposition claim that 
the underlying problems remain 
untouched. 

His ambitions in soda! reform 
and in policy towards: Northern 
Ireland are inseparable. Giving 
altogether too much weight to this 
one element in unionist psycholo- 
gy, 'FitzGerald believes foal foe 
creation of a more plural society is 
the key to persuading stubborn 
northerners of the attractions of 
their southern neighbour. He has 
other quite genuine, reasons for 
favouring social reform. Ireland is 
adjusting to the consequences of a 
much faster rate of social and 
economic change than many ofits 
European neighbours. A relatively 
poor and predominantly rural 
society has been modernized very 


rapidly: a richer, less insular and 
urban society has grown along- 
side. less ready to subscribe to 
traditional pieties. 

Influenced by the Catholic phi-, 
losopher Jacques Mantain, who 
argued for greater pluralism m 
Catholic societies of the future, 
FitzGerald has been working for 
some years towards slow separa- 
tion of church and state. He began 
laving foe groundwork for foe 
legal proposals of the I980s_at 
least 10 years earlier by exploring 
foe room for movement with the 
Vatican's veteran diplomat Cardi- 
nal Casaroli. 


N ot an of this has gone 
his way ~ the abortion 
referendum was a 
disaster - but he has 
pushed through more 
liberalizations of the law an 
contraception and stands a fair 
chance of seeing a tentative mea- 
sure of divorce introduced by 
today's poll. 

The best that can be said for his 
policy towards Northern Ireland is 
foal it has been pursued with some 
stability and consistency, produc- 
ing modestly useful results. Hie 


Hillsborough Agreement was the 
product of tortuous negotiation 


product of tortuous negotiation 
requiring some stoic patience 
from FitzGerald, particularly 
when he was pressed to react to' 
Thatcher's dismissive rejection 
(“Out. out, gut") of the New 
Ireland Forum -report. 

. His silence was the wisdom of a 
matured politician. The Info per- 
haps view the agreement more 
sceptically than the mainland 
British, being more keenly aware 
of the toughness of the problem- 
But they credit Garret with a small 
success in a field where successes 
of any kind are rare enough.

Britain is spending £35 
i million a day on alcohol, and 
foe huge daily round is getting 
bigger. We now drink almost 
twice as much alcohol as the 
nation did in foe 1950s, and at 
just about half the cost in real 
terms. In health terras, howev- 
er. the cost has never been 
greater. More than 25,000 
, people a year are dying as a 
direct result of alcohol abuse, 
according to a report by 
Action on Alcohol Abuse. The 
damage to family life, work 
performance and other social 
effects is incalculable.

Measure for measure: keeping your alcohol intake in check

who think we know better 
that seemingly safe and inof- 
fensive majority known as 
“moderate drinkers”. A grow- 
ing percentage of alcohol's 
casualties, evidence suggests, 
are essentially law-abiding, 
respectable men and women, 
often with good jobs and a 
better than average lifestyles. 


This amiable and sociable 
group is most responsible for 
the 240 per cent increase in 
wine drinking, and foe 95 per 
cent rise in spirit drinking, 
since 1962. What is a “moder- 
ate drinker"? How much is 
loo ranch, and for those who 
aren't sure, is there such a 
tactic as “clever drinking” that 
will offer protection? 

The Legal and General in- 


surance group launched, last 
| month. The Art of Sensible 
Drinking, a video with foe 
| message foal, whereas a few 
drinks may be harmless, too 
many people don’t know 
where to stop. Indeed, some 
medical experts wiU soon cut 
by almost half the recom- 
mended safe limits. 

The Royal College of Psy- 
> chiatrists recommended, in 
1970, a maximum limit of 
eight drinksa day, or 56 units 
ofalcohol a week. A unit 
equals a half pint of beer, a 
glass of wine or a single 
measure of spirits - a limit 
most experts nave since recog- 
nized as much too high- And 
there may have arisen a 


author -with his wife Jo of 
Drinking Problems, believes 
physical damage from alcohol 
begins to occur in men taking 
more than 21 units a week. 1 
Such quantities increase the 
risk of high blood pressure, 
strokes and heart disease, he 
says. Women, who are affect- 
ed ax lower levels, should 
consider 14 units their safe 
maximum, he says. 


Heavy drinking sessions are 
more associated with physical 
damage, particuialry to the 
stomach, than regular tipples 
of smaller amounts. Beware 
weekend drinking; most peo- 
ple drink three or four times as 
much on Saturdays as on week 
days, and twice as much on 
Fridays. 

Think — and drink — in 
units. Set a daily or weekly 
maximum, and avoid the 
temptation to drink to that 
limit. Keep a diary of your 
intake, and set specific limits 
for particular occasions, such 
as a party or a pub outing.

THE SPANISH 
COCKPIT 

By Franz Borkenaa ' 

Phno, £4.95 


History is seldom tidy. Even 
its more obvious patterns 
usually prove fragmented, yet 
the instinctive temptation to 
form schematic views- will 
always be with us. For a 
subject as politically 
as the Spanish Civfl War 
is doubly true. 


When this thesis is extended 
beyond the spring of 1937, 
several seams come under 
strain and the odd button 


begins to pop. For example 
Preston’s view — “it is diffi- 


Partly reflecting the old 
rivalries; three general tenden- 
cies can be identified amongst 
writers favourable to the Re- 
publican side: those basically 
loyal to the Communist ver- 
sion; then, what one might call 
the “social democrat school”; 
and finally a disparate band of 
liberal or left libertarians. All 
are represented in this finny 
of books for the war’s fiftieth 
anniversary. 

Walter Gregory's account of 
life as a young Communist 
among the unemployed and in 
the International Brigades re- 
veals little new. A worthy, 
humane book, it is written 
with a strong working-class 
sense of fair play, yet gives 
only, half the story, dearly, be 
does not want to rock the boat 
with criticism of former com- 
manders or reference to the 
background of Stalinist witch- 
hunts. 


The Spanish Cockpit by the 
Austrian sociologist Franz 
Boricenau is a sympathetic yet 
honest study of the social 
revolution, ft is one of the 
very few works from the 
period to become a classic. 
Orwell hailed it as “the best 
book yet written on the Span- 
ish Civil War” lb- a review 
refused by the New Statesman. 

The “social demoeratf cate- 
gory is the most ' strongly 
represented with; contribu- 
tions by Professors Car and 
Preston. Raymond Carr’s in- 
troductory prfrisfor Images 
Of the Spanish Civil War, a 
good collection of photo- 
graphs and posters, is written 
with admirable darby. Paul 
Preston's short illustrated his- 
tory, The Spanish Civil War , 
seems however, to have pre- 


cult to ; deny the military 
achievements of the 
Communists" — cannot be 
maintained into that disas- 
trous sequence of offensives, 
which eventually destroyed 
the Republic’s capacity of 
resist. He describes the 
Brunete operation as “well- 
planned'’ although it massed 
eight divisions with no experi- 
ence of manoeuvre on a 
scorched plain; a perfect target 
for the Condor Legion, which 
in two days destroyed three- 
quarters of their armour. Wal- 
ter Gregory does not record 
the reaction of the British 
battalion's 42 survivors (out 
of 600) when Brigade Com- 
missars claimed it as a victory. 

In a previous work Ray- 
mond Carr defined the prob- 
lem succinctly: “The Popular 
Army, valliaat in defence, had 
developed no capacity for a 
sustained offensive even when 
it enjoyed a crushing local 
superiority." Predictably, the 
Ebro operation of July 1 93$, 
the Reub lie's greatest offen- 
sive, turned into its greatest 
disaster, virtually a serf-inflict- 
ed coup de grace.

At first the idea was to take 
off the Valencian 
int, yet a fortnight before the 
attack, the Nationalists had 
been fought to a stand-still in 
what was the Republic's most 
cost-effective battle of the war. 
(One cannot help wondering 
whether the absence of Com- 
munist' commanders had 
some effect on the way so little 
was heard of it). Preston, 
however, thinks the National- 
ists continued to advance, and 
that “by 23rd July Valencia 
was under threat”. This is 
difficult to imagine since they 
would have had to have 
breached the line, and because 
the Nationalists had already 
transferred formations for 
Queipo de Llano's offensive 
on July 19th in the south; 

Although Valencia was out 
of danger, the plan still went 
ahead. Negrin wanted a spec- 
tacular success to force Franco 
to negotiate. His generals 
imagined they could retake 
the corridor between the two 
Republican zones. It was Wal- 
ter Gregory and his comrades, 
Spaniard and foreigner alike, 
who paid for such self- 
delusion.

Their analysis of the 
Republic's situation could be

1936 necessitated tough mea- 
sures to restore order and 
provide an effective defence

Only the -Communists could 
obtain military aid from Rus-

Dissident Afrikaner voice

ENDPAPERS 
By Breyten Breytenbach 
Faber, £1250 


T his book has come at 
the right time. Now 
that the miasma of 
outrage and rhetoric 
obscures South Africa, who 
better to penetrate it than a 
white Afrikanei? Especially an 
Afrikaner who realizes that, 
like the Chateau de Oullon or 
the Black Hole of Calcutta, 
South Africa has become both 
“symbol" and “reality": 
“These two truths are inti- 
mately linked. .and both can 
operate simultaneously." But 
Breyten Breytenbach is no 
ordinary Afrikaner: he is a 
poet and painter, who lived in 
France for many years; when 
be returned to his native 
country in 1975 he was arrest- 
ed on various charges, includ- 
ing that of “terrorism”. He 
was imprisoned for seven 
years, some of them in solitary 
confinement On his release 
be returned to Paris, where he 
lives now. 


It is not surprising, then, 
that End Papas should be a 
political bode. It is essentially 
a collection of essays ana 
lectures, most of them polemi- 
cal or analytical in intent The 
general theme can be sum mar 
□zed thus: the while govern- 
ment of South Africa is 
determined to retain power.

itent combination 



eaty answer would be along 
exilic lines: that by leaving his 
country, be has left the best 
part of 


be has left 
himself. Certainly he 
how seems to be intransigent- 
ly opposed to his inheritance: 
“I don’t consider myself in 
Afrikaner." he writes, “am not 
particularly sure whether I’m 
South African.” But the evi- 
dence of his two previous 
books, A Season in Paradise 
and The True Confessions of 
an Albino Terrorist, suggests 
that despite his exile he has 
remained an inventive and 
effective writer. 


No, the problem with End 
less 


Papers has less to do with his 
rejection of Afrikaner identity 
than the feet that he has 
remained so dose to it: it has 
often been said that the rebel- 
lious son is most like the 
father, and Breyten tech’s rev- 
olutionary fervour sounds 
very much like the illiberalism 
of the conventional Afrikaner 
dressed up in another guise. 


Breytenbach suspects that the 
country is rapkfly turning into 
an autocracy on familiar 
Third World principles; and 
he also believes that there is a 
general strategy at work which 
is “a military one, with clear 
goals and a timetable." 

Concessions may be made 
in the apparent dismantling of 
apartheid, but these mil be 
merely camouflage; and, if 
South Africa represents West- 
ern culture or Western inter- 
ests, it is only in the act of 
betraying them: “It is the 
cutting edgeof new realpolitik, 
expressed in the callousness to 
hunger and poverty and 
death ” The real point is that 
the Afrikaners are unfit to 
rale: “They cannot know the 
Africans. Not even them- 
selves. How can the master 
ever understand the slave? 
Control and repression are not 
tools of perception.” 

This is well expressed. But it 


is no disparagement of his role 
as a radical Afrikaner to note 
that these attitudes are now 
commonplace: most of the 
essays in this collection could 
have been written by someone 
who had never visited, let 
alone inhabited, the country 
in question. The fact is that 
few of Breytenbach ’s argu- 
ments seem animated by his 
individual perceptions or by 
bis unique experience; with 
the usual proportion of windy 
generalization and neo-Marx- 
ist rhetoric, they could have 
been composed by any other 
radical of similar views. When 
he asserts that “Apartheid 
destroys culture", he may be 
correct; but one wants to know 
why or how. Certainly 
Breytenbach ought to know, 
but instead he presents a few 
truisms about state censor- 
ship, which are succeeded, in 
another essay, by such phrases 
as “culture is interaction". 


and culture “will have to be 
revolutionary mid socialist." 
This is O level stuff. There 
seems to be no personal life 
working in the prose here. 

It could be argued that this 
is inevitable: that, by their 
nature, theoretical essays are 
bound to be of an abstract and 
impersonal kind. But contem- 
porary writers as disparate as 
Baldwin, Solzhenitsyn, and 
Eliot have written social or 
political commentaries in 
which the single most impor- 
tant element has been the 
stylistic imperative of their 
own obsessions. Their pecu- 
liarities are precisely what 
make them significant, not 
some putative common 
ground on which all right- 
thinking people can stand. 
The common ground is for 
common writers. 

And so how is one to 
account for the relative failure 
of Breyten bach’s prose? The 


I n bis attacks upon West- 
ern liberalism and the 
Western inteUectual tra- 
dition, for example, be 
seems uncannily to have an- 
ticipated Pik Botha’s recent 
speech about the “sickness" of 
the West There is even a 
streak of viciousness (he talks 
of one Observer journalist's 
“maggoty column") which 
may also be characteristic. 
The point is that the Afrika- 
ners have a distinctive tem- 
perament — impassioned and 
sometimes distraught — 
which informs Breyten bach’s 
prose no less than it affects the 
attitudes of the South African 
government He is a fully 
paid-up member of the tribe 
even as he denounces it I 
suspect that Breytenbach rec- 
ognizes this uncomfortable 
feet which is why his words 
here are often so strident and 
over-emphatic. 

Of course illiberalism and 
even viciousness can be im- 
portant sources of a writer’s 
strength; and Breytenbach is 
at his best when he is being 
most polemical: “Murder in 
the name of survival and 
murder in the name of the 
right to exist In the land 
where torturers get promotion 
and the men of God pray 
down hate from the pulpit", 
and so on... this sounds tike the 
authentic Afrikaner voice, 
from the pulpit or elsewhere. 
Nevertheless even these im- 
passioned sentences represent 
a waste of Breyten bach’s con- 
siderable gifts: he says at one 
point that the peculiar ambi- 
guities of South Africa render 
it a fertile soil for Literature. 
That is precisely why he 
should leave polemic and 
propaganda (whether it is 
“right" or “wrong” does not 
really matter) to those who are 
incapable of writing anything 
else. 


Classic shock tactics on stage 


Tony Harrison is the gangster 
of modem English poetry. His 
energy, his legerdemain, his 
brutality — all these odd qual- 
ities can be found demonstrat- 
ed in the pages of bis 
substantial Dramatic Verse 
1973-1985 (Bloodaxe Books, 
£20). They are odd, of course, 
only in terms of contemporary 
taste. Compare Harrison with 
Villon or Brecht and he begins 
to lode less strange. 


POETRY 


Robert Nye 


A woman sits in the electric 


chair 

Bke waiting for the drier to 
dry her hair 
in the beauty parlour. 

Soon the State Official will 


come and pull 

ana energy will fiU 


the switch 
her skull 
like the violins of Mahler 


I quote this, from the start of 
bis “Medea: a Sex-War 
Opera" because it gives a 
good idea of the rough and 
shocking nature of Harrison's 
gifts. Only a true poetic sub- 
versive. I submit, would want 
to compare Mahler's music to 
death by electrocution, but 


once encountered the thought 
can never be forgotten. Simi- 
lar intellectual stuck tactics 
distinguish and sometimes 
disfigure the principal things 
in the book — those versions 
of Moliere, Racine, and Aes- 
chylus that have been so 
successful. 

Harrison may well be a 
major dramatic poet in die 
making. He is certainly a most 
accomplished transformer of 
classic works for the modem 
stage, and while these texts 
vary in felicity, they all have a 
verve and a nerve and a robust 
mix of wonder and disillusion 
and pity, contained by solid 
craftsmanship, which make 
that comparison with Brecht 
and Villon not ridiculous. 

Fiona Pitt-Kethley's Sky 
Ray Lolly (Chatto & Wind us. 
£3.95) marks the debut of 
another committed enfant ter- 
rible, one presently making 


somewhat too much of a song 
and dance about being filthy- 
minded and female. The title 
poem, for example, about the 
poet as a toddler employing an 
ice lolly to strut on the 
seafront mocking an old man, 
strikes me as mildly amusing, 
and then modestly moving in 
its attempt to draw a fete 
feminist moral from . the 

incident: 


The world still sees me as a 
nasty kid 

usurping maleness. A foul 
brat to be 

smacked down by figures of 
authority. 

AU things most natural in 
men, in me 

are vice — having no urge to 
cook or clean, 

lacking maternal instincts. 


The fourth and the beginning 
of the fifth line quoted have 
real power and honour; but for 
the rest, while one sympa- 
thizes, one must still suspect 
that Pitt-Kelh ley's blend of 
comedy and anger is ultimate- 
ly banal.

PAPERBACKS 


Sea songs have always been 
one of the most vigorous 
branches of British folklore, 
as befits a maritime nation. 
They represent and reflect the 
proper pride of the people in 
fighting and merchant fleets, 
with equally proper criticism 
of their conditions. 

The tribulations of the 
pressed man and the qualms of 
the greenhorn “Ready to bring 
up guts and garbage" give 
place to the veteran's pride in 
victory or his bitter memories 
of defeat and shipwreck. Par- 
ticularly memorable are the 
songs involving survival by 
cannibalism. 

We begin with the Hundred 
Years War and come up to the 
1970s recession in the fishing 
fleets. Oral tradition, broad- 
side, and some composed 
songs show all aspects of naval 
history and naval life. We see 
as mnch of Jack ashore as 
afloat, at leisure as at work. 
There are rather few shanties. 
(A shanty is a merchant 
sailor's rhythmic ^ arksong 
devoted to a particular ship- 
board task; no other kind of 
song is properly so-called; 
shanty si nging was never per- 
mitted in the Royal Navy.) 

Mr Palmer has gone far in 
search of material. Seven- 
teenth-Century seamen’s 
wives defend themselves 
a g ainst journalistic attacks on 


their morals. “A foil descrip- 
tion of the manner of the 
taking of Whales" foil of 
technical details, has a fine 
bouncy tone. 

Tones have been supplied 
“where known". In quite a few 
cases, though, tunes have been 
collated firms other, often lat- 
er, versions. In some like “The 
Dolphin's Return" the connec- 
tion between text and tune 
seems tenooiB. In others, one 
knows that versions of the 
times are available, but none is 


Modem morality 
in verse ’n worse 


Northern California seems at 
first an unlikely spot to inspire 
an heroic endeavour in te- 
trameters over thirteen can- 
tos. Yet, on further thought, 
this archaic medium does 
rather well in supplying a 
witty veneer to the aggressive 
eccentricity that lies at the true 
heart of San Francisco. In 
other words, it contains the 
mess. 

In The Golden Gate, 
Vikram Seth has written a 
long and enjoyable narrative 
in verse, which chronicles the 
love lives of a group of friends 
in and around San Francisco. 
It is also a morality tale in 
which a young man with 
“yuppie" ambitions (Young 
Upwardly-Mobile Profession- 
al) dares to flout the laid-back 
liberal conventions of his 
contemporaries. He is 
shocked by homosexuality; he 
is not for nuclear disarma- 
ment; be couldn't care less 
about whales; and he almost 
comes to a very sticky end. 

The author is clearly partial. 
Yuppie John is an unpleasant 
character with a short temper 
and no imagination. His one- 
time friend, Phil, anti-nuclear 
protester and drop-out. is 
much more human and has all 
the best lines. The whole book 
is rich in humour, however, 
and John gets some rare 
sympathy when describing his 
lovely girt friend to Phil (with 
whom she is about to run 
away):

PERSEPHONE 
By Jenny Joseph

Who whispered like a god- 
damned doomie!" 
“A doomie f" “You kitow- 
someone who 
Thinks all Jane Fonda says 
is true." 


The author acknowledges 
his inspiration as Pushkin's 
Eugene Onegin- The book is 
an ambitious exercise and 
impressively well-executed. It 
is also a great pleasure to read- 
impassioned in its light-hand- 
ed support for the anti-nuclear 
lobby and touching in its plea 
for tolerance in Reagan's new 
society, it is an eccentric and 
charming song of the 1980s. 

The social realism of The 
Widow Bird is more redolent 
of the 1960s (as is that truly 
awful title). The jacket blurb 
itself calls attention to the 
novel’s affinity with the early 


Margaret Drabble. This is a 
confident 


ident first novel, howev- 
er, which sets out to describe a 
woman rebuilding her life 
after the sudden death of her 
faithless and unloving 
husband. 

The early details of the book 
are very well managed, The 
funeral with the assembled 
family immediately suggests 
the perspective of one who is 
not truly involved in the grief 
and ritual of the occasion. 
Gare, the widow, a lecturer at 
a small university, is playing 
the role assigned to her. And 
yet she is a widow in practice, 
in finance, a one-parent fam- 
ily. Her struggle to keep the 
truth about their marriage 
uppermost, resisting social 
pressure to grieve for some- 
thing false, is the most suc- 
cessful aspect of the novel. 

Everyday events build slow- 
ly to a reassembly of existence, 
illuminating the basic compo- 
nents of domestic life. There 
is, however, an overload of 
melodrama that works less 
well. One event involves her 
daughter's meningitis. The 
harrowing detail oi he child’s 
condition and the mother's 
anguish is finely observed; but 
its effect and intention are lost 


in a muddled and unconvinc- 
ing attempt at a Greene-esque 
sub-plot involving faith, forni- 
cation, and the Catholic 
Chun*. 

The widow rather domi- 
nates everyone else in the 
novel, except for a delightful 
portrait of her son Daniel, and 
a likeable colleague, Chrissie, 
fat and fecund, whose amoral- 
ity almost balances the book's 
woolly theology. The Widow 
Bird is never more than the 
sum of its parts, but 
Rosamond Ridley has written 
a realistic romance for the 
most part, with a few excellent 
touches. 

Grief and loss are the 
subject of the first third of 
Jenny Joseph's Persephone, an 
experimental combination of 
prose and poetry, which uses 
the myth of Persephone and 
Demeter to look at the 
rhythms of life for today's 
Eveiywoman. 

The poetry, which threads 
the myth's narrative through 
the book, has an austere 
beauty and a command of 
language that is absent from 
much of the prose. The book is 
in three sections, which take 
the reader through the yearly 
cycle from autumn to follow- 
ing autumn, and through 
death, birth, and rebirth on. 
different actual and psycho- 
logical levels. 

The prose pieces, which 
have no real narrative connec- ' 
tion, are often monologues or 
confused dialogues, with few 
clues given to character. The 
author explains in an after- 
word that in her (well regard-" 
ed) poetry she has often used • 
voices to allow characters to ' 
tell her stories. Within that 
discipline she is quite success- 
ful, but in the looser frame- 
work of prose conversation, - 
where character is best delin- ! 
eared by differing speech 
rhythms, she often fells into- 
parody. It is true that there is ’ 
some deliberate parody in tbe l 
book - a letter to an agony 
aunt, a photo strip in the style - 
of a teen magazine — but her 
characters, who are usually; 
unanalyiical and direct in ■ 
their nature, too often sound 
like the butt of some snobbish 
joke. 

This is an effect so very for 
from the author’s intention 
that one can only conclude 
that this attempt to infuse 
myth with modernity has gone 
badly awry.

THE TIMES 
DIARY 

Anybody 

game? 

The British holiday trade to South 
Africa has been badly hit by the 
conflict there. Bookings for May 
and June arc down by about 75 per 
cent compared with the same 
period Iasi vear, and all the signs 
are that they will stay that way for 

the rest of the summer. Lunn Poly, 
which records the biggest drop in 
demand, tells me the package 
holiday market has almost totally 
dried up, and Speedbird Holidays, 
a British Airways subsidiary, de- 
scribes the situation as “dismal”. 
Hogg Robinson Travel reports a 
fall of between"3Q and 40 per cent 
for June, More than 120,000 
Britons visited the country last 
year, so even though it is'now the 
off-season there is great concern. 
Bill Archer, Speedbird’s general 
manager, says: “There may be no 
business at all in three or four 
month’s time.” . 

Regrets 

One group of politicians conspicu- 
ous by its absence from the current 
round of visits to South Africa is 
the House of Commons Foreign 
Affairs Com mi tie. Its seven 
staunch Tory backbenchers are 
resisting all attempts by the four 
Labour members to see for them- 
selves bow President Botha’s poli- 
cies have affected South Africa’s 
neighbours — Namibia. Zambia, 
Botswana. Angola, Zimbabwe, 
Lesotho and Swaziland. The To- 
ries are citing lack of time and 
money, plus prior engagements, as 
their reason for unavailability. I 
am not entirely convinced; a more 
likely explanation could be the 
potential embarrassment to Mrs 
Thatcher of an all-party report 
drawing hostile conclusions about 
the Botha regime.

Haringays 

Homosexual sex education could 
soon be taught in the London 
borough of Haringey if its Lesbian 
and Gay Unit gets its way. The 
unit has written to school and' 
college heads telling them that it is 
now council policy in education 
“to promote positive images of 
lesbians and gays”. The letter says 
the council is to establish a fund to 
help all establishments “from 
nursery through to further ed- 
ucation” to develop the relevant 
. curriculum. The unit wants to 
meet heads “to offer help and 
advice about how this new policy 
might begin to be implemented”. 
Tory councillor Peter Murphy 
says: “It’s absolutely frightening - 
an outright Marxist attack on the 
family and the norms in society.”

President Reagan's senior officials 
— often divided on US policy 
towards Europe — were particu- 
larly divided over their allies* role 
in the Strategic Defence Initiative. 
Some recognized there would be 
important political gains for the 
administration if Mrs Thatcher 
could be persuaded to endorse it 
but did not see why such endorse, 
meat should be paid for. 

Others believed that American 
security would be enhanced by 
scientific and political co-opera- 
tion between the US and its allies, 
especially Britain. If this involved 
the transfer of important and 
sensitive technology to a potential 
commercial competitor, so be it 
Competition, in the eyes of these 
officials, never did anyone any 
harm. 

Some, of course, opposed SDI 
altogether, and tried to obstruct all 
cooperation. The announcement 
on Monday that Britain has been 
awarded two important SDI re- 
search contracts is a success under 
difficult conditions. 

Despite the strong personal and 
political links that exist between 
President Reagan and Mrs 
Thatcher it has for a long time 
been hard to turn their relation- 
ship to Britain's commercial 
advantage. The purchase of Tri- 
dent and the embarrassment over 
Ptarmigan, the British bid for the 
American battlefield radio con- 
tract, are classic recent cases. 
Trident is too expensive, say 
British critics. Why didn't the 
Americans buy Ptarmigan?, they 
ask. 

As it happens, the feult lies with 
Britain in both cases. British 
negotiators, many of whom were 


Star Wars: 
hands across 
the void 

by David Hart 


conditioned by the Foreign Office 
ethos to be suspicious of dose 
personal relations between their 
political masters, foiled to take 
account of the complexity of the 
Washington terrain. 

US defence analysis believe that 
if the British had negotiated more 
skilfully when Trident was bought, 
they could have got a much better 
deal. They also point out that 
when the dollar was high, the 
pound low and General Dynamics 
was in trouble over contracts with 
the Pentagon, Britain should have 
tried to renegotiate. Haiti to 
prove, but both these contentions 
ring true. 

The American battlefield radio 
contract presents a much dearer 
case. Mrs Thatcher was persuaded 
by her officials to write a personal 
letter to President Reagan urging 
him to accept the British bid. 
Those who persuaded her of this 
should have lmown how weak and 
hopeless a case she had. The 
British system was vastly more 
expensive than the French and 


was largely untried while die 
French was partly is service. 
Above all, the American system of 
arms purchase, overseen, as it is by 
Congress, simply does not give the 
President the option to bully the 
Pentagon into accepting a politi- 
cally attractive but wildly un- 
competitive offer. 

Critics of SDI, both hoe and in 
America, will say that these con- 
tracts have taken an inordinate 
time coming and that they are 
mere tokens, given as an act of 
political assistance to a friend in 
need. Administration o fficials dis- 
agree. They say that it is because 
both America and Britain want a 
la-sting and fruitful relationship 
over SDI that it has taken some 
months to ne g o tiate agreements 
that are certain to produce 
satisfactory results and 

likely to create a sympathetic 
atmosphere for subsequent nego- 
tiations. 

Previous co-operation on de- 
fence matters and present in- 
formation convinces them that 


Britain has excellent research 
facilities and personnel and that 
there are several areas where 
Bri tain has an important contribu- 
tion to make.. In some Britain 
leads America. 

It is a pity that at the signing in 
Washington George Younger 
- emphasized that, while Britain 
supported research on SDI, 
deployment would have to be 
negotiated with die Soviet Union. 
No doubt he was speaking to his 
domestic audience. As with his 
urgf pg rhg administra tion to think 
. .again over its derision to abandon 
the Salt II limits, he- showed r“ ! “ 
bow little ministers and 
officials understand the Ameri- 
cans. If SDI research is successful 
it is simply naive for anyone to 
believe that any American admin- 
istration would be so irresponsible 
as not to deploy it in the absence 
of fruhy f-fl pri 3 * and fygting arms 
control agreements. 

These contracts go some way 
towards answering British critics 
of Mrs Thatcher who claim that 
her relationship with Reagan is a 
one-way street that runs the wrong 
way. It is likely that there will be 
more substantial contracts soon. 
Indeed, the Ministry of Defence 
announcement specifically re- 
ferred to other British prop o sals 
on which negotiations are well 
advanced. 

If Britain does secure further 
SDI contracts. Mis Thatcher’s 
determination to recreate the spe- 
cial relationship and use it to 
enhance British influence over the 
Americans could writ bring her 
substantial domestic political 
gains.

Trade unionism throughout west- 
ern Europe is going through its 
worst phase since the early 1960s. 
Manual labour, its heartland, has 
sharply declined and is likely to 
decline further, particularly in 
steel, coal mining and metal- 
working. During the 1970s unions 
in most countries recruited many 
white-collar and professional 
workers, including a growing 
proportion of women. But that 
was during a period of successful 
wage bargaining and increasing 
government recognition of the 
unions’ role. White-collar union- 
ization is unlikely to maintain the 
same pace during a prolonged 
recession and, in many countries, 
a hostile political climate. 

The growing number of pro- 
fessional and white-collar union 
members has serious implications 
far beyond trades union move- 
ments themselves. In most coun- 
tries man ufacturing industry — 
especially metal work — is the 
main export sector. When unions 
of this type were dominant they 
imparted a general awareness of 
the vulnerabilities of the national 
economy. 

Since the 1970s this has changed 
almost everywhere except West 
Germany. The increasingly domi- 
nant white-collar and public-ser- 
vice unions are able to press their 
membeis* interests with little re- 
gard for national economic needs. 
In addition, the public service 
unions put pressure on govern- 
ments for higher state spending, 
leading to greater government 
intervention in wage bargaining. 

Labour forces are also likely to 
become increasingly segmented. 
On the one hand those in jobs will 
try to protect the gains in security 
and conditions made during the 
1970s, and employers will want to 
win the long-term commitment of 
skilled workers. On the other 
hand, employers will seek increas- 
ing flexibility to survive in the 
more precarious economic en- 
vironment; that means a more 
easily disposable work force. The 
consequence will be increasing 
divisions between those with 
reasonably secure, full-time and 
legally protected jobs and those in 
temporary, often part-time, un- 
protected jobs. 

The protected sector will shrink 
relative to the insecure as employ- 
ers seek ever greater flexibility and 
unions find it difficult to organize 
the part-timers and temporaries. 
This could mean dedining levels 
of unionization and greater diffi- 
culty in protecting the security of 
the primary work force as its unit 
costs continue to increase in 
relation to those of the secondary. 
This would undermine the unions’ 
claim to represent the under- 
privileged, who might lapse even 
more into political apathy and so 
weaken the labour movement 
further. 

In nearly all European coun- 
tries, governments responded to 
the inflation of the early 1970s by 
trying to strengthen the union and

How unions 
can regain 
their muscle 



employer federations in an at- 
tempt to restore discipline to the 
labour market But managerial 
strategy has since shifted to action 
at the company level, often explic- 
itly weakening national or in- 
dustry-level activity. This has 
happened even in Scandinavia, 
where highly centralized systems, 
introduced originally at the behest 
of employers and long regarded as 
sources of stability, nave recently 
been attacked by industrialists as 
excessively constraining. 

One factor for this abandon- 
ment of national and/or sectoral 
negotiations is the growth of shop- 
floor power. Individual manage- 
ments are now seeking to regain 
the initiative with their own 
policies. The American style of 
management, sometimes em- 
bodying diluted Japanese prac- 
tices, has become more common. 
It is an informal, friendly ap- 
proach which gives workers a say 
in low-level policy. These de- 


velopments remove the status 
barriers that were so important in 
forming the unions* identity and 
may help to resolve grievances 
that would otherwise be tackled by 
union representatives. 

All these changes leave loop- 
holes that unions can exploit to 
maintain their position, but they 
need flexibility if they are to take 
advantage of them. For example, 
temporary and part-time workers 
include discontented groups 
whom one might regard as natural 
union members — ethnic minor- 
ities, women in unfavourable 
working conditions, young people 
trapped in low-paid jobs by eco- 
nomic circumstances. But to enlist 
them, the unions must adapt to 
the new flexibility of the labour 
market rather dan continue to 
insist on universal standard terms. 
They must also find ways to 
reconcile the interests of such 
groups with those of existing 
members. Recent campaigns for a 


reduction in working hours are an 
example. 

Can unions buBd on this by 
making themselves useful to 
workers involved in the new 
company-level channels of part- 
icipation? Their likely response is 
that such channels foil to provide 
workers with real power, but 
workers themselves may find the 
personal level of involvement 
useful and in some respects pref- 
erable to the more bureaucratic 
form of standard union re- 
presentation. Rather than outright 
opposition, the unions should 
provide services enabling workers 
to make the best use of company 
schemes. 

In West Germany, unions have 
learned how to strengthen their 
position by working through 
works councils rather than fight- 
ing them. In Britain, the 
electricians’ and engineering 
workers’ unions have readied 
agreem e n t s with individual high- 
tech companies, especially of 
Japanese ownership. They have 
been criticized for this by other 
unions, but at the very least they 
have been able to ensure a union 

- presence in firms that might 
; otherwise have pursued. an Ameri- 
can no-union policy. 

A union that developed in these 
various ways would need to 
become decentralized. By sodoing 
it would also remain closer to its 
members. But a labour movement 
that becomes completely decen- 
tralized- loses the capacity for 

- strategic and political aclion-Ifthe 
unions are to withstand the new 
employer offensive, they wall need 
friendly governments that wifl 
guarantee rights of union member- 
ship and recognition and outlaw 
employer tactics for keeping 
unions ouL 

Further, the past decade has 
demonstrated the vulnerability to 
inflation of a folly employed, 
highly organized economy. But 
workers need an economy of that 
kind if they are to have any 
countervailing power against em- 
ployers. It is this dependence of 
labour on an inflation-prone econ- 
omy that has given conservative 
parties their great opportunity 
during the 1980s, Social dem- 
ocracy’s answer is self-restraint by 
the unions; that can be provided 
only by a politically oriented 
union movement with some cen- 
tralized power. 

Unions that respond success- 
fully to these challenges will look 
very different from nearly all 
existing models of trade unionism, 
but they will not resemble the 
(^politicized groups envisaged by 
their critics. In those countries 
with a strong legacy of govem- 
ment-empl oyer-union co-opera- 
tion, union dilemmas will be 
eased. In the others they face a 
difficult future.

Once again, the Chinese Com- 
munist Party is encouraging the 
country’s intellectuals to speak up, 
argue and disagree: “To let a 
hundred flowers bloom and a 
hundred schools of thought 
contend,” as Mao put it in 1956. 
But this time intellectuals will 
examine the offer with care, not to 
say fear. 

If China is to reach Deng 
Xiaoping's goal of full moderniza- 
tion within 75 years the party 
needs the co-operation of intellec- 
tuals. But they have suffered in too 
many inquisitions. 

Hardly a day has passed since 
the 30th anniversary of the Hun- 
dred Flowers without the Com- 
munist Party newspaper, the 
People’s Daify, or an academic 
association proclaiming that it 
must be reaffirmed. Two weeks 
ago the People’s Daily asked what 
went wrong after 1956: “the price 
we paid was huge and appalling.” 
The party knows what went 
wrong. Surprised by the vigour of 
the criticism — called forth by 
Mao Tse-tung’s invitation to criti- 
cize even the party itself— Mao 
declared at least 300,000 of the 
intellectuals to be “bourgeois 
rightists” and lumped them in 
with 30 million others as class 
enemies. The last of them were 
rehabilitated only in the last two 
or three years. 

Politburo member Hu Quli 
recently denounced such persecu- 
tion. but in the same week a 
Shanghai economic journal said 
that even during the last seven 
years academic democracy bad 


Flowers reluctant 
to bloom afresh 


been neglected, and that only 
specific legislation would end 
persecution and anti-intellectual 
campaigns which prohibited en- 
tire areas of inquiry. 

But tiie post-Mao leadership is 
not wholly repentant- A party 
resolution published in 1981 
blamed what it called a handful of 
bourgeois rightists who, after the 
proclamation of the 100 Flowers, 
advocated “speaking out and air- 
ing views in a big way” in order to 
mount a wild attack against the 
party. The party, it said, was 
entirely correct to counter-attack. 

The principal author of the 1981 
resolution was Deng Xiaoping, 
who is now calling on intellectuals 
for co-operation. But in 1957, 
when he was party general sec- 
retary under Mao, Deng told the 
central committee: “The majority 
of the rightists have been made to 
bow before the masses and admit 
their crimes . . . There must be a 
portion of the rightists who will 
not repent and they must bring 
their reactionary viewpoints with 
them to their graves." 

In 1949 China's intellectuals 
had cautiously . welcomed the 
Communist victory. But seven 
years later writers, scientists and 
teachers were suffering from a 
series of campaigns so draconian 


that during the brief thaw a 
professor wrote boldly to Mao: 
“We have applied to intellectuals 
methods of punishment which 
peasants would not apply to 
landlords and workers would not 
apply to capitalists." 

Early in 1956. in an attempt to 
restore their confidence, Chou En- 
ter declared that many intellec- 
tu a l s had now entered the working 
class, and that even when mis- 
taken they should uo longer be 
treated as counter-revolutionaries. 
In April of thaz year, to a dosed 
conference, Mao issued his call for 
“blooming and contending." De- 
signed to impress intellectuals by 
alluding to a period of classic 
debate in the 4th century BC, 
Mao's remarks were given their 
first public interpretation in late 
May by a politburo member. 

But there was little response 
from the suspicious intelligentsia 
until news began trickling into 
China of Khrushchev’s denunci- 
ation of Stalin, and of the Hungar- 
ian uprising. By early 1957, Mao 
was pressing intellectuals to criti- 
cize even the leadership — but “as 
gently as a breeze or as mild as 
rain." Emboldened academics be- 
gan to demand what right the 
party, and even Mao himself had 
to dictate the nature of their work. 


University students too turned 
but to have strong views on 
academic freedom. 

Some of Mao's dosest allies 
were shocked "by the avalanche of 
critidsm, and alarmed by the 
prospect of student unrest Presi- 
dent Uu Shaoqi, who was killed 
on Mao's order during the Cut- 
tural Revolution, declared that “a 
party split is more damaging than 
a defeat to the revolution." Obedi- 
ence to the Party was now 
considered more important than 
intellectual contributions to mod- 
ernization. The Hundred Bowers 
had been reduced to those ap- 
proved by the party, and those 
which were to be regarded as 
“poisonous weeds.” 

Recently Lu Dingyi, the 80- 
year-old former minister of cul- 
ture, called for another Hundred 
Flowers. In May 1956. then an 
alternate member of the . Polit- 
buro, he provided the original 
public explanation that “blooming 
and contending” applied to writ- 
ers and scientists. But in July 
1957, with the leadership on the 
defensive, it was Lu Dingyi who 
condemned the party’s ditits as 
“anti -socialist elements, attempt- 
ing to seize leadership among the 
educated journalists, and. sci- 
entists. and to provoke student 
disturbances.” Small wonder that, 
today some, , of the survivors 
remember the Hundred Flowers 
as merely “a stratagem to luretbe 
snakes out of their caves.”

When international anxieties are 
fnn^ Hfwl on a prospect of turmoil 
and much bloo d s he d, ef forts are 
usually made by politicians and ui 
media comment to explore the 
historical realities uitfknymgeach 
side of the question in search m a 
workable solution. The case of the 
South African whites is a angular 
exception. 

A moral criterion has been 
pgmhiiichrd by which apartheid is 
so iTH »eh a unique arid peculiar 
evfl foal nobody of goodwill 
should any possible relevance 
m contemplating the historical 
HiWnma which underlies ft. South 
Africa is presented as melodrama. 

The villains determined to mam- 
tain their racial supremacy are 
confronted by heroes struggling 
for freedom and with demands 
behind which the world must 
nn q uestiohinri y rally. 

In the cry for sanctions, a quite 
exceptional moral bandwagon is 
rolling, aboard which all decent 
people are expected to scramble. 
No dictatorship, however murder- 
ous or vile; has attracted nidi 
demands for hostile intervention. 
Moral fashion requires the argu- 
ment to be simply about the 
imm ediate effects and effective- 
ness of sanctions;, iiot about what 
a hamate outcome of the crisis 
make s sense in South Africa. 
Discussion of the fundamentals 
goesby default All that is morally 
in order is p re s s ure to force the 
whites to come to' terms with the 
demands of the African National 
Congress for one man one vote in 
a unitary state. 

Every other concession in dis- 
mantling the ap p ara tus of social 
apartheid is dismissed (even by 
Bishop Tutu) as too littfe too lato 
and as evidence that the pressure 
must be intensified. It is the classic 
pre-revolutionary situation in 
which con c essions are taken as a 
sign of weakness and rejected so 
that hearts may be hardened and 
the struggle continued until total 
victory is achieved. 

In Britain politicians argue 
about what impact sanctions will 
have on the South African 
government's policies, whether 
they will barm Mads (as Pretoria 
cteunsL whether ordinary. Haifa 
nevertheless want them,' and 
whether they will canse unemploy-

Many share David Steel's view 
that although sanctions are largely 
“gesture politics” which are un- 
likely to “bring the Sooth African 
government down” fito? are still 
necessary asa signal tome African 
population that ifcey are not 
fighting alone but have the demo- 
oatic West bebmditi^m. .... 
If it is said, sanctions toe not

century model but the quasi- 
monarchicai and baronial version 
of the 13th centtny which takes 
root.” That version is suitable at 
some stag e* in development, but 
hardly to South Africa. 

White resistance to it is the root 
of apartheid, from the concept of 
the homelands to social apartheid 
which is intended to prevent 
political advance. It is a harsh and 
immoral system which even in its 
own terms has been applied 
dishonestly. Separate develop- 
ment has been nothing ofthe sort 
since the growth of prosperity has 
owed much to the availability of 
low-paid black labour and to an 
unfair division of the country. But 
we have to deal with the fear at the 
root of these misdeeds if we wish 
to avoid bloodshed. 

Commonwealth black leaders, 
moved by their own resentment of 
colonialism, demand that Britton 
should impose sanctions. They are 
bad guides. We might tdl them 
that lor ob£ thing colonialism has 
generally been u means to human 
■advancement; the Ramans' were 
colonists and we ourselves were 
beneficiaries. Colonialism leaves 
problems but the straggle in South 
Africa is not strictly one of them. 
It is a struggle between the 
aspirations of different commu- 
nities and a solution must be one 
which produces peace by satisfy- 
ing them both. Britain's role is to 
urge a solution that mil turn away 
a wrath which wiU only be 
dangerously intensified if all that 
is on offer is sanctums and the 
ANCs present demands.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR 


1 Pennington Street, London El 9XN Telephone: 01-481 4100 


THE UNCIVIL WARRIOR 


Tensions are undoubtedly 
high in Northern Ireland. But 
what caused Dr Paisley’s sud- 
den conversion to the theory 
that civil war is round the 
comer, when he had been so 
relatively quiet on this - and on 
most other - subjects for the 
past few weeks? 

The shortest answer is that 
the latest phase of the struggle 
for political leadership of 
unionism has still produced no 
conclusive winner. Ever since 
the Official Unionists and Dr 
Paisley’s Democratic Union- 
ists, began vying for domi- 
nance in the early 1 970s, many 
of their tactics have been 
influenced not only by their 
traditional opponents but by 
consideration of the oppo- 
nents on their own side. 

The centre ground of union- 
ism will always gravitate to- 
wards its traditional 
representatives, the Official 
Unionists. Dr Paisley has to 
find his ground on either the 
moderate or the extremist side 
of that obstacle. At any given 
moment, therefore, he can be 
found being either surprisingly 
free-thinking or else parading 
potential paramilitaries in 
preparation for hand-to-hand 
fighting. 

The speed and frequency of 
his journeys between these two 
poles has occasionally con- 
fused observers into thinking 
that Dr Paisley is moving 


towards the more pragmatic 
centre. If there is one safe rule 
of thumb in judging these 
volatile manoevres it is that if 
a piece of ground has Dr 
Paisley’s feet on it, it is not in 
the centre of anything. 

Dr Paisley is now. as virtu- 
ally always, testing the politi- 
cal temperature. Is there a 
constituency for violent resis- 
tance to Hillsborough or will 
dissent remain mostly peace- 
ful? Unionism is again di- 
vided: many unionists were 
genuinely disgusted at the 
intimidation and thuggery 
triggered off by the staging of a 
one-day protest strike in 
March. But it is also a deep- 
seated and widely-held belief 
in both communities that vi- 
olence is the continuation of 
politics by other means, that 
communities engaged in self- 
defence can licence themselves 
to resist or attack what they do 
not want irrespective of the 
views of the state in which they 
live. 

In this culture, there is a 
marked shortage of voices to 
tell Dr Paisley what should be 
self-evident, that there can be 
no justification for the vi- 
olence which he claims to 
foresee and in doing so helps to 
encourage. It is particularly 
ironic that Dr Paisley talked 
about a “battle” to preserve 
“our British heritage”. It is not 


FREE LIBRARIES 


Little is sacred among our 
time-honoured institutions 
these days. If they have stood 
the test of time it often seems 
to be assumed that something 
must be wrong with them. But 
one institution has remained 
sacrosanct and apparently be- 
yond censure: the public li- 
braries. 

Founded In the middle of 
the last century, they are 
customarily extolled as open 
doors to literacy and literature 
and as making a little, or even 
a lot, of learning available to 
Everyman, if he wants it They 
are seen as a means of 
transmitting our intellectual 
heritage from one generation 
to the next, and as justifying 
their cost by helping to build a 
basis for economic growth by 
giving access to the constantly 
enlarging flow of information. 

Now, however, even the free 
public libraries have been 
subjected to attack in a 
provocative and highly illu- 
minating report. Ex JLibris, 
which has just been published 
by the Adam Smith Institute. 
Disrespectful it certainly is 
and it will undoubtedly arouse 
rage in the arts-and-culture 
establishment. But it is a 
healthy and reasoned critique 
and it deserves to be consid- 
ered seriously. 

From their beginning, pub- 
lic libraries have been funded 
by the rates, though before and 
after the first world war their 
expansion owed much to the 
private donations of the Car- 
negie Trust, which totalled 
some £1.8 million pounds. 
Until 1964 in England and 
Wales, and 1972 in Scotland it 
was purely a matter of local 
decision whether local authori- 
ties used their discretionary 
power to provide and fund 
library services. But since then 
they have had a statutory duty 
to do so. The report calculates 
that the cost of the libraries 
through public funding is now 
£7 a head for every man, 
woman and child in Britain. 

But the cost is not the sole 
charge directed against the 
principle of the free public 
library. The real criticism is 
based on what might be called 


value-for-money principle and 
on the consequences of the 
present system. It has, says the 
report, reduced book pur- 
chases and deprived authors 
and publishers of income to 
which they are entitled. The 
expansion of libraries into 
records, tapes and videos (for 
which charges are made) has 
provided unprecedented 
opportunities for illegal copy- 
ing, again depriving creative 
artists of their due royalties. 
They have encouraged the 
opinion that books are free, 
and they have undercut and 
driven out of existence the 
private subscription and other 
libraries which commonly pro- 
vided fiction cheaply before 
the war. 

But the most telling charge 
against is that the greater 
number of customers use the 
service to borrow not educa- 
tional books or literature but 
light romantic fiction: Mills 
and Boon on the rates. It is a 
good point and it raises the 
question why not also 
subsidise romantic films? 

The best answer is that at a 
lime when, despite the vast 
cost of education, literacy is at 
something of a discount in 
Britain, anything that pro- 
motes it in a society whose 
habit is to look more at 
moving pictures than the writ- 
ten page, is something to be 
preserved. Likewise the least 
convincing charge against li- 
braries is that they are largely 
paid for by citizens who do not 
use them; on that basis every 
element of redistribution 
through taxation should be 
removed. 

The real question is whether 
the system with all its faults 
could be changed for the better 
and cheaper without harming 
the basic facility for self 
education which it provides. 
The proposal in the report is 
that library members should 
pay an annual charge of £4 and 
a borrowing charge of 30 
pence, which would enable 
more to be spent on the 
educational and reference ser- 
vices. Additionally, a separate 
charge of £1 a day (surely for 
many people a really serious 


deterrent) is suggested for 
using reference and reading 
room facilities, with reduced 
rates for children, pensioners, 
the unemployed and students. 

A charge of the latter sort is 
plainly unacceptable and 
would make nonsense of the 
educational purposes of public 
libraries which are especially 
important at a time when it is 
more and more important for 
citizens to have a return to 
education when they wish after 
school The idea of charges in 
general carries the same dis- 
advantage. 

What would be more accept- 
able, if it could be devised, is a 
scheme for charges on pulp 
fiction leaving a free service 
for educational and literary 
books. But where would the 
line be drawn? How would one 
devise categories which would 
enable charges to be levied for 
Mills and Boon but not for 
Hamlet or Iris Murdoch? And 
where would Agatha Christie 
come into it? 

It is a minefield through 
which few would care to tread, 
and in the absence of any 
convincing scheme for placing 
charges on a limited category 
of highly non-educational 
books it has to be concluded 
that the report does not make 
its case for charges. 

Nor indeed do charges help 
to answer some of the most 
formidable aguments of the 
report, the use of libraries for 
censorship. It is common 
knowledge that politicised li- 
brary committees comb the, 
bookshelves to remove books 
that offend their particular 
notion of what they should 
contain, protecting children 
from anything they think 
savours of racism and sexism. 
Some even protect their rate- 
payers from reading The 
Times. But how would charges 
which simply kept more peo- 
ple out of the library stop that? 
It is a valuable and stimulating 
report which should make us 
think more about how libraries 
should be managed, what they 
should stock and who should 
manage them. But it does not 
lead convincingly to its 
authors' remedies. 


THE WOMEN NOW WAITING 



Every little boy, or so we are 
told, dreams of one day 
becoming a train driver. By the 
early 1 980s 18.617 of those 
little boys had fulfilled their 
ambition. One of them had 
changed sex along the way. She 
is now the single fully qualified 
train driver on British Rail’s 
books. 

The paucity of women on 
the staff of Britain’s railways 
has been evident to any rail 
traveller for decades. Two 
years ago the Equal Opportu- 
nities Commission set out to 
discover the reasons. Its highly 
critical report, Warned: 
Railman, published this week, 
revealed a catalogue of out- 
dated and self-perpetuating 
attitudes which help to explain 
whv so few women (a mere 
6.5% of the British Rail 
employees) are involved in 
running the railways. 

The train driver is one 
manifestation of these atti- 
tudes. Driving a train, despite 
technological improvements 
which have put an end to the 
heavy, sooty work of the past, 


is still regarded as the pinnacle 
of achievement on the rail- 
ways. The job is steeped in 
tradition and not a little 
legend. And part of that legend 
is that train drivers need a 
certain special quality; they 
belong to an exclusive caste. 
Neither the qualities nor the 
caste include being a woman. 

The most frequently offered 
excuses for the dearth of 
women employees are famil- 
iar. Railway work is heavy and 
dirty — but so is a great deal of 
work done by women and 
anyway it is less so than in the 
past It involves unsocial 
hours and shift work; but so do 
many jobs, including the 
predominantly female nursing 
profession. The career pro- 
gression. based as it is on long 
service and promotion 
through the ranks, does not fit 
a woman's life pattern. Does 
the promotion pattern of any 
large organization? 

What really disqualifies 
women are the prevailing atti- 
tudes to recruitment and staff 
training. Being a member of a 


“railway family’* may still be 
more important than 
qualifications for the job. Va- 
cancies are often advertised by 
word of mouth — man to man, 
father to son. 

There is precious little part- 
time working on the railways, 
even though the irregular flow 
of traffic should make the 
employment of part-timers 
advantageous. Overtime is the 
preferred norm — regardless of 
the number of people (both 
sexes) out of work. 

The Commission’s analysis 
of opportunities for women in 
British Rail merits attention 
because it is equally applicable 
to almost every large national- 
ized industry. Railway/ww. as 
the report notes, see them- 
selves and British Rail as part 
of the country’s great indus- 
trial tradition, alongside steel 
and coal. Here is perhaps the 
most outdated attitude of 
them all. and the one which 
needs to be abandoned most 
rapidly if the railways are 
serious about looking to the 
future. 


Avoiding battle in nation’s church 

From the Reverend Canon George tend only they) whose supporters 


part of our heritage to raise 
arms against a democratic, 
elected government 

Unionists such as Dr Paisley 
claim that the negotiation 
leading up to the Hillsborough 
agreement and the abolition of 
the local Assembly has de- 
prived them of their vote and 
voice. Even if this claim is 
taken at its face value - and 
there is no reason to do so - it 
could never conceivably jus- 
tify the civil war Dr Paisley 
appears to relish. 

It throws into sharp relief 
the old unionist dilemma of 
finding a measure of influence 
with the state to which they 
wish to be united. TTiat in- 
fluence has been eroded over 
the years by lack of political 
movement and a willingness 
to resort to violence or to 
threaten it. It is not likely to be 
restored by frontal assault on 
constitutional authority. In 
particular, it is not likely to be 
enhanced by violence against 
the police. 

There was an appalling 
irony in the spectacle of Dr 
Paisley denouncing the un- 
lucky policemen who had 
hauled him out of the Assem- 
bly chamber. Dr Paisley, the 
vocal scourge of terrorists, was 
busy wasting the precious time 
of those who manage the real 
business of dealing with terror- 
ism. 


Austin 

Sir. In your leader (June 20). “The 
choice for the Church”, you 
rightly point to the Church of 
England's dual role as the church 
of the nation and the church of 
committed Anglicans. I value both 
aspects and would deeply regret 
the demise of either. But theologi- 
cal decisions, whether about the 
nature of Christian belief or about 
the ordination of women, must be 
reached on a firmer basis than the 
religious impulse of popular senti- 
ment. One is a Christian because 
one believes and not because 
being Church of England is an 
aspect of being a thoroughly 
decent Englishman. 

This means that in coming to 
such derisions, majority opinion 
is not relevant in the way that it 
might be in. say, a referendum 
about membership of the Com- 
mon Market. Had Athanasius not 
stood alone ( contra mundum), the 
Church might now have been 
Unitarian. A more recent example 
is the defeat of the Covenant 
proposals by a minority vote, as a 
result of which a newer and more 
exciting way towards a unity in 
diversity is coming to fruition and 
centuries of bitter division be- 
tween Anglicans and Roman 
Catholics are being healed. Yet to 
the “church of the nation” oppo- 
sition to those proposals seemed 
as bizarre as does the present 
opposition to the ordination of 
women - “tactics of bluff and 
bluster” as you yourself describe 
them, with an uncharacteristic 
lack of charity. 

A recent BBC Newsnight poll 
suggested that no less than 18 per 
cent of members of the General 
Synod would not wish to be part of 
a Church of England with women 
priests. Projected on to total clergy 
numbers, that would mean a 
staggering 1,900 clergy who would 
be prepared to leave — neatly 
twice as many as the “bluffers and 
blusterers’’ have previously sug- 
gested and an average of some 45 
priests per diocese. This number 
could well increase when it is more 
fully appreciated that the issue at 
stake is not simply the ordination 
of women but, in its wake, the 
increasing dominance of liberal 
theology. 

While it is true that the support- 
ers of women in the priesthood 
have within their ranks the broad 
sweep of theological opinion, it is 
also within their number (and 
only there) that those are to be 
found whose liberal theology takes 
them beyond the bounds of what 
in the bishops* report. The Nature 
of Christian Belief, is described as 
the only belief which “can daim to 
be the teaching of the universal 
Church”. 

Rather than “bluff and bluster”, 
it is a simple fact that those who 
oppose the ordination of women 
will claim that because it is they 


do not stray beyond those bounds 
of universal faith, accepting the 
traditional formularies of the 
Church of England and holding to 
the doctrines of the creeds as 
understood by the universal 
Church, it is they who are the 
Church of England. 

It is to avoid the unseemliness 
of a legal battle to determine who 
really is the Church of England, as 
well as to give the opportunity of 
two parallel churches undivided 
by bitterness and recrimination 
becoming reconciled without diffi- 
culty and pain at a future date, 
that ! shall propose such a course 
at the York Synod next month. 

One thing is certain: the fun- 
damental differences which exist 
between liberals and traditional- 
ists within the Church are wasting 
the energy and efforts of sincere 
people on both sides of the 
argument to such a degree that the 
real mission of the Church is being 
desperately undermined. We can- 
not go on in this way. and if a di- 
vision — albeit temporary — is the 
only way to avoid it. then perhaps 
such a course is actually the way 
God intends for us. 

Yours sincerely.

From Mr H. Hyslop 
Sir. You say in your first leader of 
June 20 that “Not to ordain 
women . . . would be to oppose 
the historic process of female 
emancipation and equality on the 
grounds that there are esoteric 
differences between men and 
women which Christianity alone 
knows about but cannot convinc- 
ingly explain”. Is not this to 
attempt to solve a theological 
problem as though it were a purely 
secular one? 

All Christians hold that divine 
revelation was addressed before 
Christ to the Jews. It has never 
been supposed that it was so 
addressed because there were eso- 
teric differences between Jews and 
Gentiles which the human reason 
should tie able to verify. The 
assumption has always been that 
God favoured the Jews in his way 
because he freely elected to do so 
as he was fully entitled to do. But 
scripture and tradition combine to 
suggest that God has likewise 
freely elected, as he is equally 
entitled to do, to be served at the 
altar by males alone. 

What strictly theological reason 
exists for contending that, on the 
point in question, scripture and 
tradition are misleading? It is this 
above all that needs to be ex- 
plained. 

Yours faithfully,

Men and manners 

From Mr Lucas Meltinger 
Sir, 1 admit that Mr Bernard 
Levin's customary wit wrapped in 
verbal skills provoked my invol- 
untary chuckles of which, on 
reflection, I felt much ashamed, as 
I think he ought to be. 

He asks (June 1 9), “Who now is 
grinding down the poor?” and he 
implies that it is most of the 
unions, exemplified by one of 
their chairmen recently elected on 
the strength of: leaving school at 
15; sticking to pints and meat pies 
(instead of restaurant food); 
dedining a taxi to his hotel in a 
downpour and avoiding marriage 
with a woman of the professional 
classes. Mr Levin then ridicules 
their failure to aspire to his and, 
no doubt, your readers* values. 

However, elevated academic, 
culmary or sartorial refinements 
are not a prerequisite to the 
development of integrity. It is also 


likely that personal relationships 
- marriage being the most 
demanding — are more supportive 
when the union, or unions, are 
founded on the base rock-bottom 
which is mocked by Mr Levin, but 
recognised as solid ground for 
leadership by those who have no 
experience of other realities. 

In the absence of cultivated 
standards to be maintained pre- 
tence is the least dvilised of 
attitudes and acceptance the most 
promising. This, I guess, was what 
the union members felt when they 
elected their chairman as “one of 
the lads” 

Mr Levin’s failure to under- 
stand this position would justify 
them - if they were interested — 
on this occasion to call him an 
“arrogant prig”. 

Yours faithfully,

Lost for words 

From Mr F. A. Turkman, MEP for 
Leicester (. European Democrat 
( Conservative )) 

Sir, Your leader (June 20) on the 
new language policy is well bal- 
anced until you come to your final 
paragraph. The global village does 
not exist and it does not speak 
English. 

The need to speak other lan- 
guages is not only important at the 
technical level, but extends to 
understanding people. Much of 
our marketing could be improved 
if sales staff were able to speak to 
and understand the foreign diem 
in his own tongue. They would 
find that not everything is 
translatable and that the under- 
lying attitudes have to be under- 
stood before the all-important 
rapport between people is estab- 
lished. 

This becomes very evident at 


(he political level. So many British 
actions spring from the feeling, “If 
it's different it must be wrong"; 
the result is a constant series of 
misunderstood reactions. On tbe 
European scene, it would help 
enormously if more British 
politicans understood our part- 
ners. if that were seen and felt to 
be so. with the result that our 
frequent need to disagree would 
no longer be regarded as springing 
from ignorance, lack of sympathy 
and simple arrogance. 

Language represents feeling, 
history, culture and very fun- 
damental attitudes; these differ 
between peoples. Knowledge of 
language can change barriers into 
bridges. We need more of them. 
Yours faithfully.

The hippy convoy 

From Mr Marcus Trinick 
Sir, ft is most interesting to note 
the various reactions there have 
been to what has been called “the 
hippy convoy" in the counties of 
Wiltshire, Somerset, Dorset, and 
Hampshire. 

There is a children’s nursery 
rhyme still in cunent use which 
runs: “Hark, bark the dogs do 
bark, the beggars are coming to 

town ” This rhyme dates from 

the time of plague in the four- 
teenth and fifteenth centuries 
when there was a very real threat 
that travellers of no fixed abode 
would cany infection from one 
community to another. 

Partly as a result of this fear, but 
partly also because boroughs ob- 
jected to providing relief to those 
from elsewhere, the Elizabethan 
Poor Laws were enacted and 
provided that vagrants, as they 
were called, could only receive 
relief from and within their own 
place of origin. 

It was not until 1834 that the 
Poor Law Amendment Act was 


passed to repeal in large measure 
those Elizabethan laws. 

Because 1 am not directly 
affected by the new Elizabethan 
travellers, and partly also because 
those like me who were tee n agers 
between 1960 and 1970 may feel 
some sympathy by association. I 
do not feel able to have any firm 
views on the present problem, 
given especially that tbe “hippies" 
of 1986 do not accord with my 
memory of the hippies 20 years 
ago. However, I do wonder if in 
the same way, that our inherited 
memory causes us to fear or to be 
wary of darkness, the present 
reaction to the hippy convoy may 
betray a degree of inherited mem- 
ory dating back to those days of 
plague so long ago. 

It is noL for nothing that 
children’s nursery rhymes have 
survived so long. They strike a 
chord in our deepest conscious- 
ness. 

Yours faithfully, 

MARCUS TRINICK.

Limited choice 
of headstones 

From Mr Clive Farahar 
Sir. Bernard Levin (June 7) asks 
“Who . . . commissions tombs 
today?” The answer, 1 expect, is 
those who can afford fine artists 
and workmen and can smooth 
over such local planning diffi- 
culties that arise. 

The problem that many more of 
us face is the depth to which the 
an of the headstone has sunk. My 
wife and 1 recently had the sad 
oppon unity of looking more 
closely into this area only to be 
appalled at the lack of choice and 
overall tasielessncss that the high 
street monumental mason could 
provide. We were given the im- 
pression that the catalogue prof- 
fered was all we could expect 
Indeed, to look in any church- 
yard or cemetery it is easy to see 
how, over the last SO years this 
dull and uninteresting conformity 
has been allowed to develop. 
Some blame must go to the local 
diocesan regulations and the 
excusable desire of the mourner to 
get the arrangements for the stone 
over and done with. 

We spend much time improving 
our environment, both naturally 
and through the arts, and I believe 
that there is a responsibility for 
local councils and clergy to 
encourage higher standards. 

In our own case we found an 
artisi/craftsman whose experi- 
ence, warmth and enthusiasm for 
the project took a great weight off 
our minds. His costs compared 
most favourably with those for the 
most basic stone offered by the 
monumental mason. 

People may not have the re- 
sources for a Gilbertian tomb, but 
the fine arts of lettering, chasing 
and carving stone are still around 
and very underused. 

Yours faithfully,

Single European Act 

From Mr Peter Gifford 
Sir. We ought to welcome the 
implementation of the Single 
European Act if it will ensure that 
the EEC Council of Ministers will 
reach speedier decisions. But the 
individual, let alone Westminster 
(as mentioned by Mr William 
Cash MP. feature, June 16) does 
need reasonable safeguards in case 
he is at tbe receiving end of 
Commission legislation following 
some package deal thrashed out by 
politicians without regard for a 
particular minority interest 
We need to have earlier warning 
of the topics for decision and of 
the proposals for legislation. 

At the present time — and I ha ve 
been told this by officials of the 
Commission — it is more or less a 
matter of luck whether representa- 
tions are considered by the right 
penson at the right time or at all. 
This is of special importance to 
those who own land within the 
Community because the differing 
land and property laws of each 
member state make a common 
application of Commission leg- 
islation very awkward. 

The Commission ought, at 
once, to strengthen its linguist 
section so that documents axe 
quickly available in all official 
languages. And the Commission, 
having gathered greater power to 
itself, ought to have the courage to 
re-delegate to member slates the 
detailed means of carrying 
Community policy into effect so 
that each member state can, 
wherever necessary, have due 
regard for its own national laws. 

Attention to these matters 
would help us to a better under- 
standing of what is going on and 
could ensure a debate in the 
parliaments of each member state.

Serpentine closure 

From Mr Feliks Topolski 
Sir. My domestication in London 
in 1935 evolved out of a great 
many delights, “exotic" to me — a 
Central European, in their vari- 
ation. topped perhaps by care, as 
realised by Lansbury's gesture of 
opening at almost no charge, 
therefore to everybody, the unique 
wide landscape of Hyde Park's 
Serpentine for the bathing “Lido”. 

I swam and basked there every 
one of those 50 years (not sure 
about the war years) amongst the 
widest range of people, gathered in 
harmony, of all ages, all back- 
grounds. all races (including those 
precious tourists) — until this year 
the blessed “amenity” was 
extinguished, inexplicably, since it 
was. I believe, established 
statutorily’ as of public right to 
stay. 

1 appeal to the undisclosed 
powers to revoke their brutal 
decision, at least on the ground of 
it damaging London's fame for its 
benevolence. 

And I appeal to other habitues 
of the Serpentine Lido to come 
forth with protestations, perhaps 
more legally effective than this 
weak plea. 

Yours faithfullv,

JUNE 26 1925 

The archive of The Tunes does 
nut record if Mussolini’s letter is 
unique as one coming from a 
prime minister and having a 
polemical content. King Victor 
Emmanuel Ilf appointed Benito 
Mussolini ( I&S3-I945) prime 
minister on October 30. 1922. an 
uffice he held until July 1943. 


SIGNOR MUSSOLINI 
AND 

" THE TIME S.” 

TO T HE E DITOR OF 
THE TIMES 
Sir. — I am very sensible of the 
fact that your most important 
paper attentively follows my pollti 
cal and polemical manifestations. 
Allow me, however, to rectify some 
statements contained in your last 
editorial. 

It does not correspond with facts 
that the last Bills voted by the 
Italian Chamber are against the 
most elementary liberties, whereof 
you will be convinced by carefully 
considering the articles of the 
aforesaid laws. It is not true that 
patriots are discontented. On the 
contrary, the truth is that the 
opposition is carried on by a small 
dispossessed group, while Lhe enor- 
mous majority of the Italian people 
works ana lives quietly, as foreign 
ere sojourning in my country may 
daily ascertain. Please note also 
that Fascism counts 3.000,000 
adherents, whereof 2.000,000 are 
Syndicalist workmen and peas- 
ants, thus representing the politi- 
cally organized majority of the 
nation. Even the Italian Opposi- 
tion now recognizes the great 
historical importance of the Fas 
cist experiment, which has to be 
firmly continued in order not to fail 
in its task of morally and material- 
ly elevating the Italian people, and 
also in the interest of European 
civilization. Please accept my 
than It c and regards. 

I am, &C-, 

Rome, June 24. MUSSOLINL 


Signor Mussolini’s Apologia. 

We gladly lay before our readers 
the interesting letter which SI 
GNOR MUSSOLINI has 
telegraphed to us for publication. A 
chief advantage of the liberty of the 
Press, as it exists under free and 
equal laws, is that it affords the 
representatives of all opinions the 
opportunity of stating their own 
case in their own words, subject 
only to the limits of moderation 
and of courtesy. Certainly nothing 
could be more temperate or polite 
than the substance and the tone of 
the ITALIAN PRIME 
MINISTER'S communication . . . 

. .All that he purports to do is 
rectify certain s t atements in a 
leading article which appeared in 
these columns last Tuesday. It is 
easy to weigh the value of these 
rectifications. He does not “conde- 
scend upon particulars.” He con- 
fines himself to general assertions 
and general denials. SIGNOR 
MUSSOLINI says that the Bills 
just passed by the Chamber, in- 
cluding the Press Bill, the Civil 
Service BUI, and the Bill investing 
the Government decrees with the 
force of law, are not against the 
most elementary of liberties. That 
contention may be left to the 
common sense of the public. The 
closing sittings of the Chamber and 
his address to the Fascist Congress 
were the occasion of an article to 
which SIGNOR MUSSOLINI 
takes exception. The number of a 
leading Italian newspaper of very 
moderate Liberal views which 
reported the address was sup- 
pressed in one edition for com- 
menting upon the sittings. The 
Duce’s" boast that Fascismo has 
,000,000 supporters who repre- 
sent the “political organized ma- 
jority of the nation” may be 
referred to the same tribunal. The 
nation numbers 40,000.000 Ital- 
ians. What right have these 
.000,000 — it indeed, there are 
3,000,000 Fascists — to represent 
them? SIGNOR MUSSOLINI 
says quite truly that the enormous 
majority of the people are working 
and living quietly, and be denies 
that patriots are discontented If 
the discontented are but “a small 
group", why is it necessary to gag 
the Press, to forbid free speech, to 
forbid public meetings, and to arm 
tbe Executive with arbitrary and 
practically irresponsible powers? 
SIGNOR MUSSOLINI declares 
that the movement must be “firm- 
ly continued” for the moral and 
material elevation of the Italian 
people and in the interest of 
European civilization. There is 
difficulty in seeing bow it can 
benefit either. We believe that 
SIGNOR MUSSOLINI sincerely 
and earnestly desires the welfare of 
Italy. We are convinced that this 
policy is not in the long run tbe 
way to promote it. 


Digging up the past 

From Mr John O’Byrne 
Sir. The medieval period, despite 
Mr Martin Best's protestation 
(June 21 ). was not so glorious. 

It was marked, for the most 
part, by acute shortages of food, 
pestilence, and the existence of a 
landocracy whose estates were 
worked by slaves. The system of 
justice was harsh and arbitrary, 
decapitation being the usual 
punishment. In short, medieval. 
Yours faithfully.

Sir. On seeing a field of buttercups 
my grandson, aged three-and-a* 
half, said with great authority to 
his brother, aged two. “That’s oil 
seed rape".

A SPECIAL REPORT ON 
CRANFTELD INSTITUTE OF 
TECHNOLOGY 


Flying through 
the frontiers 


of knowledge 


C ranfield College or 
Technology cele- 
brates its 40th anni- 
versary this year, 
fortified by an ad- 
mixture of enterprise, innova- 
tion and adrenalin. It is no 
ivory tower, but an entrepre- 
neurial powerhouse, sitting 
midway between the new 
town of Milton Keynes and 
the old town of Bedford. 

Apart from some of the 
buildings, there is nothing old 
about Cranfield. It lives on the 
frontiers of technological and 
scientific knowledge and its 
ethos is to push them further 
and wider. Its inhabitants — 
the staff and students — and 
visitors are sucked into a 
vortex of enthusiasm which, if 
transported into industry as a 
whole, would transform the 
nation's living standards. 

There are colleges for aero- 
nautics and aerospace and for 
manufacturing, schools of 
management, mechanical en- 
gineering, policy studies and 
industrial science, depart- 
ments of applied computing 
and mathematics and, the 
latest addition, an institute for 
information technology. 

The latter — the marrying of 
software engineering, commu- 
nication. computer-aided de- 
sign. intelligent knowledge- 
based systems and advanced 
micro-electronics — is a field 
in which Britain has been left 
trailing. Twenty-five leading 
UK. companies have invested 
more than £3.5 million in the 
institute to help us to catch up. 
the near equivalent of finding 
a squad of English batsmen to 
stand up to West Indian 
bowlers. 

These are but a few of the 
disciplines covered on the 
Cranfield campus, but the 


institute has two other cam- 
puses — it won the Ministry of 
Defence contract against com- 
petition from Southampton 
and Loughborough Universi- 
ties to run the Royal College of 
Military Science at 
Shrivenham. Wiltshire, and at 
Silsoe in Bedfordshire there is 
the Faculty of Agricultural 
Engineering, Food Production 
and Rural Land. 


Soon, within the year, there 
will be a fourth campus at 
Milton Keynes, for the Infor- 
mation Technology Institute. 

Cranfield, the country's 
nearest, if feint, equivalent of 


UK companies 
have invested 
more than £3.5m 


the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, is a unique prof- 
it-making corporation. With 
only 1 7 per cent of its revenue 
coming from Department of 
Education grants, it has to live 
in the market-place — from its 
business-applied education, 
contract research from indus- 
try and spin-off profit-making 
developments. 

Sir Henry Chilver, 
Cranfield’s elegant vice-chan- 
cellor, believes in giving the 
various centres an indepen- 
dence and freedom to devel- 
op, but they also have to make 
money. On the one hand they 
have an academic luxury, but 
on the other there is the 
responsibility to survive in the 
fiercely competitive and ever- 
changing world of technologi- 
cal development 


Some of the staff will talk 
sot to voce of the relatively high 


Cranfield fnstimip.of Technology is unique among British 
universities. It is unique because it specialises in advanced 
leaching and applied research in engineering, technology, 
management and public policy. It is unique in that the majority 
of its courses are at postgraduate level and are frequently aimed 
at the marurer student It is unique in that it is the largest centre 
for applied research, development and design for industry, 
commerce, defence and public services within Western Europe. 



The development of Cranfield Institute of Technology from its inception as the College 
of Aeronautics in 1946, through to the granting of a Royal Charter in 1969, the inclusion 
of Silsoe College and, more recently, the Royal Military College of Science as Faculties of 
the Institute, reflea the growing importance and widening scope of the work of the 
Institute, and its leadership in the increased collaboration between academia and industry 
so necessary for the wellbeing of the nation. 


The Institute currently operates on three campuses at Cranfield, Silsoe and Shrivenham. 
On each campus, applied research, postgraduate and post experience teaching are a 
feature of the work of every Cranfield School. There is constant interplay between these 
activities which fuels the unique synergy that has underpinned Cranfield's achievements 
over the last forty years. 


Please send me more information on: 

□ research and development activitites 

□ postgraduate courses* 

□ post experience short courses* 

* please specify the nature of course required.

incidence of colleagues having 
heart attacks. But they will 
also relate how people stay for 
either a year or for life. 
Undeniably, Cranfield has an 
attractive environment. The 
campus is graced with winding 
roads and lawns dotted with 
trees: there is a tennis court 
and a sports field. 

There is never a shortage of 
students. More than 9,000 
attended degree and continu- 
ing study courses this year and 
five yearn ago there were more 
than 6,000. In 198S more than 
4,000 students applied for 
degree courses and less than 
25 per cent could be accepted. 

But Cranfield. unable to 
survive and prosper on De- 
partment of Education'grants 
and student fees alone, has to 
live, as Sir Henry describes it. 
at the “coalface” of industrial 
and technological develop- 
ment There are sessions to 
spot the worldwide strategic 
areas of growth so that 
Cranfield not only can get a 
slice of the action in the way of 
winning contracts for research 
projects, but also can be called 
in for its expertise. 

For the past five years the 
Flight Systems and Develop- 
ment Laboratories of the Col- 
lege of Aeronautics have been 
working successfully with Lo- 
tus on “active suspension” for 
formula one raring cars. Too 
expensive as yet to go into 
mass-production, it allows the 
car to “float” round corners at 
high speeds. 

The School of Industrial 
Science, with its multi-disci- 
plines ranging from metallur- 
gical engineering to marine 
technology, have a team carry- 
ing out research to spot when 
an oil rig develops a gammy 
leg. The early detection of

structural fatigue would save 
the oil and gas industries 
millions of pounds. 

The solution is to corset the 
legs with optical fibres, each 
leg having a light at its top so 
that if a fibre is broken 
because of leg movement or 
fatigue the light will dim. The 
problem is how to get the 
corset round legs standing 
many feet under water. 

It is ideas of this kind — 
hundreds of them, covering 
the spectrum of technology — 
that bring in the money. Sir 
Henry expects his 200 aca- 
demic staff not only to teach 
and undertake research, but 
also to explore those strategic

areas of growth for new 
business. 


“With the institute’s turn- 
over of£50 million a year, that 
means they are generating 
wealth at £250,000 a head,” 
says Sir Henry. There can be 
little room for lame ducks, a 
thought which may have polit- 
ical-economic overtones, but 
neither Sir Henry nor the 
institute's ethos is 
Thatcherite. 


generation and dissemination 
of ideas. 

He talks of “people per- 
forming best if they design the 
organizations in which they 
work”, citing, as one example, 
the teaching of management 
needing a different approach 
from that of biotechnology 
research. 

Cranfield, originally the in 
spiration of Sir Stafford 
Cripps as Minister of Aircraft 
Production, was founded as a 
College of Aeronautics in 1 946 
and given a Royal Charter in 
1969 when degree-awarding 
powers were granted by the 
Privy Council. 

Its objectives, as defined in 
the charter, are to “advance, 
disseminate and apply learn- 
ing in the disciplines of sci-. 
ences, engineering, technology ‘ 
and management.” and, fur- 
ther, “to promote and encour- 
age the application of that 
knowledge and learning to the 
practices or design, develop- 
ment and manufacture and 
the organization of industry 
and the public services”. 

In the very early days the 
Jeremiahs in academe and the 
market-place may have seen it 
as a “white elephant”, but its 
contribution today not only 
reaches out into the further- 
most parts of national indus- 
trial and technological 


Soaring ahead 
Professor John 
Stollery, 
above, and Sir 
Henry Chflver, 
the vice- 
chancellor, 
mixing research 
with 


commercial 


know-how 



Cranfield has become expert 
at turning out masters and 
doctors for industry just as its 
vice-chancellor. Sir Henry 
Chilver, has become a master 
at getting the institute's re- 
search funds from whence they 
came. 

If one can talk about 
Cranfield’s success story on its 
40th anniversary — an opinion 
to be vouchsafed with little 
fear of contradiction — then 
much of it lies with Sir Henry 
and the staff he bus built 
around bim. 

Created vice-chancellor in 
1970, Sir Henry’ has become, 
effectively, Britain’s chief 
technologist, the country's 
. leading exponent of the crucial 
but hitherto neglected art of 
applying research efforts to 
useful products for industry. 

Beneath the elegant de- 
meanour there is clearly a 
restless and steely energy, but 
Sir Henry has shown what can 
be done by drive and determi- 
nation. An engineering aca- 
demic, he is a go-getter who, 
after a particularly busy day of 
energetic enterprise, has 
sometimes been found asleep 
in his office at three in the 


innovation, but stretches 
across the world. 

Links have been formed 
with not dissimilar establish- 
ments in Europe, and 
Cranfield's schools and col- 
leges have staff running 
courses in North America, 
Malaya and Cyprus for Mid- 
dle East concerns. 

Not only does it spawn new 
ideas and new colleges — such 
as the College of Manufactur- 
ing, or the Information Tech- 
nology Institute — but also sets 
up its own companies, such as 
Cranfield Aeronautical Ser- 
vices Ltd. orCranfield Mould- 
ed Structures Ltd. to compete 
in the market-place. 

It exists on a remit to push 
forward the frontiers of tech- 
nological knowledge, and Sir 
Henry sees no barriers to 
further growth. “Higher edu- 
cation is the business of 
advanced leaching and re- 


search, and that is a field 
without limit”, he says. 
“There is much to do and that 
is why education is the world’s 
oldest growth business.” 

Looking at that world with 
one perspective, he sees it as 
being filled with about 
100.000 institutions and 10 
million teachers associated 
with them, all part of a world 
business of enormous 
proportions. 

Set in that context, 
Cranfield, with its 200 teach- 
ers, is. in Sir Henry's word, 
“peanuts”, but, he adds: “Our 
aim is to be the best” That is 
why, he says. Cranfield goes 
for quality rather than 
volume. 


If research and educational 
enlightenment are Cranfield’s 
aims, the spirit of 
entrepreneural activity is its 
engine. 


morning. 

The product of traditional 
universities — Bristol. Cam- 
bridge and London — he has 
paved an independent path 
since be took over the vice- 
chancellorship, turning 
Cranfield into a profit-making 
corporation. 

Not only have businessmen 
been prepared U> back the 
institute with research grants, 
but they have also wished to 
harness his skills for their own 
purposes. Sir Henry sits on a 
number of company boards, 
including that of HiU Samuel, 
the merchant bank. 

Cranfield's ability to attract 
the financial support of indus- 
try and commerce may have 
attracted envy among other 
universities, but Sir Henry 
believes that the institute’s 
approach could be applied 
equally well to whole areas of 
the arts. 

As for the Cranfield of the 
future he sees it as becoming a 
powerful British institution, 
soon to match international 
institutions such as MIT and 
Georgia Tech. 


Not all the schemes — 
whether in meeting the educa- 
tional needs of students, all of 
whom are postgraduates, initi- 
ating new courses, or carrying 
out research projects — can be 
profit-making successes. One 
senior academic conjured up 
the analogy of a box of 
fireworks. 


•v- 




“You light one rocket and 
probably nothing happens; a 
second may travel 15ft; and a 
third may really take off and 
illuminate the sky. But each 
lime you have to stand back to 
see what happens,” he said, 
and added: “Remember, you 
are doing it in the dark.” 

The institute's policy is to 
place emphasis on advanced 
research work and the teach- 
ing that flows from it. The 
goal, says Sir Henry, is not just 
to be a large teaching machine. 

“The focus”, he says, “is 
based on the philosophy that 
the crucial quality of universi- 
ties is the generation of ideas, 
many of which have surpris- 
ingly wide application, but 
which often spring from rela- 
tively small-scale activity. 
Large teaching organizations 
play an important role in the 
dissemination of these ideas, 
but they are rarely major 
generators of ideas 
themselves.”

| No company applauds 

r Cranfield's achievements 

more wholeheartedly than 
Plessey. 

Because Plessey, like 
jw Cranfield, has proved that only by 
applied research can new technologies 
flourish. 

In the development of semi- 
conductors, for example, Plessey has 
invested heavily at its Caswell research 
centre for over 20 years. 

As a result, Plessey has the UK's only 
dedicated production facility for g allium 
arsenide integrated circuits, at Towcestei; 
while exports from Plessey 
Semiconductors have won the 1986 
Queen's Award. 

Similar sustained research and 
development has led to Plessey eminence 
in telecoms, defence electronics and 
microelectronics, too. 

At Plessey, as at Cranfield - when 
you get the R and D right, the marketing 
successes follow naturally.

While a group of aeronautics 
students were being taught 
thousands of feet above the 
ground in a Jetstream turbo- 
prop flying classroom labora- 
tory recently, a twin-engined 
Aztec executive plane 
“crashed” in the Cranfield 
grounds of the College of 
Aeronautics. 

Only a select few know the 
reason for the “crash” — the 
tutors who dropped the Aztec 
from a towering crane, in a 
simulated accident It is for 
the 18 students from countries 
as far apart as Canada and 
Australia, as distant as Brazil 
and Egypt, to diagnose the 
cause. They were all taking 
part in an aircraft accident 
investigation course. 

The Jetstream — decked out 
with banks of dials behind 
which students sit monitoring 
its movements as it pitches 
and yaws — and the Aztec 
exercises are part of the length 

Wide areas of 
innovation 


and breadth of the , college 
facilities. Those in the 
Jetstream could be postgradu- 
ates on one- or two-year MSc 
courses; those involved with 
the Aztec staying for only 
seven weeks. 

The College of Aeronautics, 
started 40 yeara ago, is the core 
around which the Cranfield 
Institute of Technology was 
built and it now reaches out 
into wide areas of scientific 
and technological innovation. 
Today the College represents 
one-quarter of the institute's 
teaching effort, but it also has 
its own engineering work- 
shops and laboratories com- 
peting in the commercial 
world of aviation. 

Thai Jetstream could be 
stripped and loaded with in- 
struments to analyse pollution 
above power stations on a 
contract for the Central Elec- 
tricity Generating Board. 
Even more esoteric, the al- 
lege boffins have produced a 
revolutionary computerized 
flight control system for the 
Harrier to integrate the con- 
ventional movements of an 
I aircraft to the Harrier’s unique 
qualities of vertical thrust 

Mike Sheehan, commercial 
director, says the spectrum 
and type of work undertaken 
is indicative of the capability 
of the unit and is an integral 
part of the total aeronautical 
expertise of the college. 

An endless stream of differ- 
ent aircraft passes through the 
No 2 hangar, from Battle of 
Britain Spitfires to an autogi- 
ro, from a Harrier to a 
microlight Contracts for the 
unit range in value from £100 
to several million pounds. 

While the engineering unit 
centres on aeronautical de- 
sign, development and flight 
test activities, the academic 
staff tutor students in a wide 
range of postgraduate courses, 
as diverse as aerodynamics 
and flight and a Ashore struc- 


tures, from bio-aeronautics to 
applied psychology. 

The aim is to equip engi- 
neers for positions of high 
technical responsibility in the 

aircraft industry* air transport 
industry, and the technical 
branches of the armed and 
civil services. The study of 
offshore structures is a devel- 
opment aimed at meeting the 
national need, for engineers 
train extensively at postgradu- 
ate level for work in the 
offshore gas and ofl industries. 

The two-year MSc course is 
bio-aeronautics course is de- 
signed for science graduates 
with an interest in aircraft and 
flying, and in the use of 
aircraft in the discovery, de- 
velopment and protection of 
natural and biological 
resources. It therefore means 
lectures and laboratory studies 
in not only forestry and public 
health, in pest identification 
and control, but also in aero- 
dynamics, the theory and 
practice of flight, navigation 
and meteorology. 

Walking through its huge 
hangar there can be seen on 
the ground beside the wind 
tunnels, the workbenches, a 
small model of an ofl rig, a 
caravan and a car— the college 
carried out work for the 
Caravan Club on the interac- 
tion of cross-winds on the two 
vehicles. 

Professor John StoUery, 
head of the college, says that 
graduates who have left during 
the past 10 years are now 
working on the space shuttle, 
on the successor to the Harrier 
and on aerospace technology 
learnt through the develop- 
ment of Concorde. They also 
contribute to offshore rig tech- 
nology. to automotive design, 
to airline management, to 
improvements in arming and 
forestry and the control of 
agriculture and public health 
pests throughout the third 
world. 

Extending limits 
of knowledge 

Students accepted on the 
course will be expected to 
become proficient in the use of 
the wide range of equipment 
that has bear specially de- 
signed to extend the limits of 
knowledge in the chosen 
subject. 

Every student is expected to 
complete four hours’ dual 
control flying in one of the 
college's Beagle Pup two-seat 
trainer aircraft. After this ba- 
sic training, a further four 
hours’ flying at subsidized 
rates is provided, normally 
taking a pilot to solo. 

While there are 200 MSc 
and PhD students in a given 
year, there are also on average 
a further 600 short-course 
students. These latter courses 
range from one-week primers 
in baric subjects to specialist 
courses, up to eight weeks in 
dotation, on tomes such as 
software engineering and air 
transport planning and 
operations.

FOCUS 


CRANFIELD INSTITUTE 
OF TECHNOLOGY/3 


Pioneers on the 
hi-tech front 



Professor John Crookall addressing a technical problem with some of his students 


Sponsors that make all the difference 


The largest concentration in Britain of ' 
post-graduate teaching and research in 
manufacturing (65 per cent) can be 
round at Cranfield. In a modem block 
alongside the institute 's airfield is the 
recently created College of Manufactur- 
ing, handling 200 postgraduates and 600 
people ' from Industry on short courses 
every year. 

With its staff of 80, the college has a 
multi-million pound sponsored research 
programme — total tinnover is. £3.5 
million with last year’s earnings from 
industry at £500,000 — on the leading 


Created more than a year ago out of 
tile merger of two other Cranfield 
schools, the college has led In the field in 
introducing new MSc courses such as 
applied robotics, manufacturing systems 
engineering, and flexible mamnac tnring 
systems, and developing the EITB 
fellowship scheme In manufacturing 
management. • 

The 10 MSc courses are designed to 


provide a balance and complementary 
portfolio covering the wide range iff 
manufacturing engineering, from initial 
conceptual design, through detailed 
design to manufacturing processes, to 
the design and simnlatmg of complete 
manufacturing systems. 

The school makes no pretence that a 
single course could be expected to cover 
adequately this wide range of topics. 
However, its courses are stru c ture d 
around the belief that postgraduate 
engineers should have a broad aware- 
ness of the disciplines in the range, in 
addition to having a much deeper 
working knowledge and experience of 
their own specialist subject. 

As an essential pact of its entirely 
practical training, the college nms major 
group or team projects sponsored by 
l eading companies. They are projects 
that provide substantial help in ad- 
vanced manufacturing and design to the 
sponsors, and at modest cost 

Students, in the words of Professor 


Jack Dmsdale, are “given the ball and 
they have to run with ft.” Few faQ to get 
over the tine. Many of the projects have 
resulted in “world-first” innovations 
and developments. 

Each team of students, under the 
overall direction of a staff supervisor, is 
given responsibility for the creation of a 
new machine system in response to a 
sponsor's specification. Not only do the 
students design, manufacture, test and 
develop their prototype machine, but 
they also bear the brant of the project's 
administration. 

Projects have included a machine for 
saving time and money for the fur- 
trading company, Hudsons Bay and 
Armings, which automatically picks out 
the various colour shades of pelts and 
sorts them. 


A new institute for advanced 
teaching and research in com- 
puter-integrated manufactur- 
ing, backed by industry to the 
tune of £3.5 million, is being 
established at Cranfield next 
vear. Its aim: to become the 
focal point of C1M in the 
United Kingdom. 

Computer-integrated man- 
ufacturing means the total 
automation of all manufactur- 
ing processes, from the acqui- 
sition of raw material through 
to the finished product. Equal- 
ly, it is concerned with the 
integration of manufacture 
and with design and innova- 
tion through CAD^CAM 
technologies. 

CIM includes both tactical 
and strategic management 
control, as well as product 
development, marketing data 
and management 

information. 

Thriving on the frontiers of 
scientific and technological 
knowledge, as Cranfield does, 
the objective of the CIM 
institute is to ensure that 
manufacturing companies in- 
troduce effective computer- 
integrated manufacturing as 
rapidly as possible. 


IBM is co-operating strong- 
with Cranfield in the devd- 


Company sponsors include IBM, 
Hewlett-Packard, Texas Instruments, 
British United Show Manufacturing, 
Metal Box and Crosfield Electronics. 


ly with Cranfield in the devel- 
opment of the CIM institute. 
Support from the IBM Trust is 
likely to exceed £2.5 million. 
The Ford Motor Company 
has covenanted £250,000 over 
five years to support a'leading 
professorship in manufactur- 
ing quality within the comput- 
er-integrated environment. 

With a planned staff of 
about 50, the institute aims to 
provide an appropriate basic 
teaching in CIM for universi- 
ties, polytechnics and colleges, 
particularly the teaching staff 
in CIM technology. As well as 
the full-time permanent teach- 
ing, research programming 
and suppori staff, tiie institute 


will invite experts in CIM 
from IBM and other compa- 
nies and universitites to con- 
tribute to the teaching, 
research and development. 

Housed within the two- 
storey building will be a wide 
range of leading-edge comput- 
er technologies. They will 
include colour-graphics simu- 
lation. three-dimensional col- 
our solid modelling CAD- 
CAM, expen systems for 
manufacturing decision mak- 
ing. 

Designed to have national 
and international impact on 
the development ofCiM tech- 
nology, the institute's primary 
thrusts will be in three key 
areas: 

•Advanced teaching and 
training at master's level 
through an MSc course in 
CIM; 

• Broadly based training for 
senior personnel in manufac- 
turing industry, whose compa- 
nies are determined to lead in 
the appraisal, development 
and implementation of CIM; 

• Research and dvelopmeni 
of CIM through the longer- 
term CIM institute Fellows' 
Programmes. These will estab- 
lish CIM development and 
implementations through the 
Cranfield system of industrial 
group projects sponsored by 
leading companies. 

It sees as its purpose the 
creation of the means for 
manufacturing companies to 
maximize their corporate ob- 
jectives, including return on 
total investment, using the 
most comprehensive, flexible 
and instantaneous computing 
technology. 

For Cranfield, with its 
unique relations with manu- 
facturing industry in the UK 
and abroad, the new institute 
is seen as another leap along 
the frontiers of science and 
technology. 


Over the years the Ctnqfipld 
institute of Technology has 
developed ah expertise in 
minding and developing its 
own business. In seven years, 
nine separate companies have 
been formed. 

Cranfield Research and De- 
velopments Ltd was started in 
1975. Its aims are to manufac- 
ture, market and sell products 
and services emanating from 
the work of the institute and 
from other sources. In other 
words, it exploits for commer- 
cial; purposes its own academ- • 
ic and research expertise while 


An expert at running its own show 


contributing on an increasing 
scale to the overall level of 


scale to the overall level of 
activity withih the institute. 

... Originally organized : dn a 
divisional basis, the company 
now acts as a holding compa- 
ny for the many subsidiary 
companies that embrace a 
wide variety of products and 
services. 

. Cranfield Aeronautical Ser- 
vices. Ltd is the commercial 
arm of the College of Aeronau- 


tics. The company can offer 
design, manufacturing, instal- 
lation^ flight and ground test, 
and maintenance services to 
government agencies and 
commercial organizations 
worldwide. 

Cranfield Data Systems and 
its associated North American 
company, G.P. Data Systems, 
was established to market, sell 
and support signal processing 
systems developed by engi- 
neers and software specialists 
in the Signal Processing and 
Applications Group at the 
institute. 

“ The group, in addition to 
supplying “turnkey” systems 
solutions, is constantly using 
and developing new signal 
process techniques to tackle 
current engineering problems. 
Installed systems provide cus- 
tomers with state-of-the-art 
technology in rotating ma- 


chinery dynamics, model 
analysis, acoustics, medical 
analysis, engine test cell data, 
fatigue life estimation and 
general signal processing 
applications. 

Systems are installed 


Turnkey systems 
offer one sohition 


throughout the world, includ- 
ing Rolls-Royce and the Royal 
Aircraft Establishment in En- 
gland, Rockwell, Garrett Tur- 
bine Engineering Centre and 
United Technology in North 
America, and Volks wagon 
and Selenia in Europe. 

Every campus needs a 


bookshop, but the institute 
goes a step further. Cranfield 
Information Technology Ltd 
not only runs bookshops on 
the three campuses but now 
has a bookshop in Milton 
Keynes. It is also supplying 
other institutions, such as 
universities and public 
libraries. 

CTT Ltd is rapidly moving 
into the supply of books by 
mail order, especially in areas 
where Cranfield has academic 
strength. For example aero- 
nautics. military science, ener- 
gy. management,' robotics, 
biotechnology and informa- 
tion technology. 

Cranfield Precisions Sys- 
tems Ltd originated from the 
sale of products which began 


as systems designed, devel- 
oped and manufactured by the 
Cranfield Unit for Precision 
Engineering as product inno- 
vations. Its products and ser- 
vices include precision 
motion systems for testing 
and calibrating avionic equip- 
ment and control system mod- 
ules such as power amplifiers 
and servo drive packages. 

NMHC Consulting Ltd is 
the commercial consultancy 
arm of the National Materials 
Handling Centre. The new 
emphasis in material handling 
technology is on linking infor- 
mation technology with 
movement. 

Cranfield Moulded Struc- 
tures Ltd has developed 
around a new structural mate- 


rial called Granitan SiOO. The 
Crookson Group agreed to 
invest in the company and in 
1989 will have the option of 
acquiring a controlling inter- 
est. This will mean Cranfield 
is exporting back to UK 
industry a folly-fledged com- 
pany that evolved directly 
from the institute's develop- 
ment expertise. 


This year three new 
Cranfield companies have 
been formed. Cranfield Im- 
pact Centre Ltd which pro- 
vides consultancy services in 
the design and manufacture of 
crashworthy structures and 
micro-electronic equipment. 
Computer Aided Engineering

The Army has an increasing need for Officers 
with science and engineering qualifications. 

If you are studying^’ levels and are wondering 
w hat to do with your life you owe it to yourself to 
consider what we offer. 

Even if you’re sure you’re going to make acareer 
in industry, time spent with us could accelerate your 
progress w'hen you do. 

Science 4 A’ levels at Welbeck. 

If you expect to get high grades in Maths and 
Science ‘O’ levels and you have the qualities required 
of an Officer, you may win a place at Welbeck, our 
residential Sixth Form College for boys. 

The atmosphere is that of an up-to-date 
progressive boarding school. 

Academic standards are high, in fact on average 
two thirds of our students go on to take university 
degrees, either before or after Sandhurst. At the 
same time great emphasis is placed on all round 
development and character building. 

There is no more military training than at 
many other boarding schools (about 4 hours a week 
with the Combined Cadet Force). 

There are facilities for most sports and adven- 
ture training. 

Our students come from every type of school 

and family background. 

We will be happy to arrange for potential 

students and their parents to visit Welbeck and 
to see the College and its beautiful surroundings 

first hand. 

Sandhurst will make a man of you. 

The Welbeck curriculum is designed to pre- 
pare you for your seven months at Sandhurst 
where you’1.1 learn what being an Officer is all 


about and a good deal more. 

We’ll test your courage, your stamina and 
your initiative. 

We’ll give you confidence in yourself and 
your ability as a leader. 

We’ll train you to manage and to take responsi- 
bility for others. 

We’ll push you to your limit. You’ll emerge 
knowing how to lead men, how to keep them fit and 
eager in peace, how to lead them in action and how 
to look after them at all times. 

Sandhurst is a prelude to a specialised Young 
Officers Course. During this period the things you’ve 
learnt are applied to your own particular arm 
or service. You will gain an enhanced ability to 
command your own platoon or troop of highly 
trained soldiers. 

In short, before your twenty-first birthday you’ll 
have had a course in man- management and have 
assumed a level of responsibility that probably 
wouldn’t come your way in industry until your 
mid-thirties. 

A degree at Shrivenham. 

At Shrivenham you would read for a BSc or 
REng in Applied Science, Civil, Mechanical, Aero- 
nautical or Electrical Engineering, Communications 
and Information Systems or InformationTechnology. 

These degrees are recognised by major profes- 
sional institutions and accepted by industry. 

Apart from strictly military science for which 
Shrivenham is uniquely well equipped and staffed, 
the College has a nuclear accelerator and other 
‘state of the art’ equipment that is the envy of civilian 
universities. 


Each student is obliged to complete a research 
project as part of his course. Sometimes this leads to 
valuable discoveries which are taken up by industry. 

Not all Welbexians go to Shrivenham, some go 
to civilian universities. 

The student body at Shrivenham comes from 
a variety of backgrounds: civilian life, the Royal 
Navy, Royal Air Force, Civil Service, the Women’s 
Services and from serving Army Officers. 

Graduates can take second degrees, and there 
are also numerous specialist options to choose from. 
Later in their careers technical and scientific courses 
are available to students going to Staff College. 

Shrivenham is a big, busy growing college in . 
pursuit of excellence in everything it does. 

You may of course apply direct for Sandhurst, 
but if you can obtain a place at Welbeck and follow 
through with Sandhurst and Shrivenham you’ll' 
receive an education second to none. 

Possibly after Sandhurst you may decide you’ve 
had enough studying and want to get on with your 
job as an officer rather than trying for a degree course. 

Many jobs in the Army don’t require graduates 
to do them and you can have a very successful 
career without getting a degree, but science and 
technology are becoming much more important 
and as we said we need more qualified people. 

If you want to know more, write to Major John 
Floyd, Dept L601, Army Officer Entry, Empress 
State Building, Lillie Road, London S W6’ 1TR. 

Tell him your date of birth, place of study and 
the qualifications you are working towards.

In its School of Industrial 
Science, the Cranfield Insti- 
tute of Technology has a 
remarkable combination of 
fl|h technology equipment 
and a team of scientists and 
technologists with expertize in 
solving problems related di- 
rectly to indnstxy. It is a 
unique centre for postgraduate 
training and contract research, 
and spans a vast number of 
subjects. 

Its services are available to 
any firm, with the obvious 
proviso that the particular 
problem can be attacked prop- 
erty within' one of the seven 
main departments into which 
the school & organized. But 
that provides a large umbrella 
of expertise.. . 

There are departments ded- 
icated to innovation in well- 
established. areas like 
engineering, metallurgy and 
welding., and joining. Then 
there are laboratory test-beds , 
and specialists in younger 
science-based industries, such 
as molecular electronics and 
polymerehgintering. 

In a. similar van, depart- 
ments specialize, in marine 
technolgy,. industry and in 
development agencies. Tech- 
nicians have bieen perfected 
for monitoring the behaviour 
of various structures to be 
used offshore . - 

Other spedal fodlllies for 
research into energy conver- 
sion processes See coal gasifi- 
cation allows for the 
environmental impact of nov- 
el technologies. There are few 
places where - this type of 
detailed study can be done. 

The schorl evolved in its 
present form to meet a partic- 
ular emphasis Thai Cranfield 
adopted toward training and 
research Jinked with the in- 
dustrial application of science. 
It was to ensure that those 
activities were not just more 
closely connected with current 
innovation, but they were a 
direct stimulus for 
development 

Professor Peter Hancock, 
the head of the school, stresses 
a philosophy of “working with 
partners” rather than “for 
them.” If he has a disappoint- 
ment it is in the relatively 
small number of medium size 


firms which exploit the 
schoors resources. 

He says it is stimulating and 
rewarding to work on pro- 
grammes with big companies, 
like GEC-Marcoai, ICI or 
Shell, who are among the 
leaders in technological devel- 
opment. But be “ideally 
we would like to be the 
catalyst for more medium-size 
ones. They could probably 
benefit more in proportion to 
the scale of the work.” 

Professor Hancock says that 
one remarkable aspect of this 
centre of industrial science is 
its ability to absorb a mixture 
of short, medium and long 
term work. Whereas six 
month or twelve month stud- 
ies, involving a young re- 
search in higher degree work, 
is typical of one type of work,

investigation for an industrial- 
ist may take a matter of days. 
There can be as many as 150 
individuals on 'PhD and MSc 
— type of industrial — related 
research programmes at one 
time. 

At the other extreme, pro- 
grammes of basic science into 
the properties of materials and 
processes have - natural 
timescales over several years, 
which relates to the pace of 
innovation. In the short-term, 
work repeated experience 
shows the handicap feeing 
many smaller firms. Too few 
have technically qualified peo- 
ple to call on at senior 
management . level. So they 
either lack the expertize to 
understand the scope of the 
'resources and talent that a 
centre like Cranfield can put at 
its disposal, or there is often a 
communication gap between 
managers and technologists, 
which does not arise in the big 
firm. 

The disadvantage of the 
shortage of technical expertise 
in the smaller firm often 
results in a company chasing 
the wrong problem. Again, 


experience has shown that a 
quality problem in manufac- 
turing is frequently attributed 
to poor materials. But when 
the matter is thoroughly test- 
ed, it is not often a question of 
specifying new materials. The 
issue is best settled in 
redesign. 

On another part - of the 
campus, new industries are 
already being boro from pio- 
neering at the Cranfield Bio- 
technology Centre. The group 
has already established an 
international reputation in, 
among other developments, 
advances in biosensors. 

In such a dynamic field, the 
biotechnology group is reck- 
oned to be the fastest growing 
and largest of the recently 
established centres. 

A team of 70 work at 
Cranfield with the director 
Professor John Higgins. But 
they collaborate with a team 
of 40 at the Leicester 
Biocentre of Leicester Univer- 
sity, to form what is believed 
to be the largest university 
biotechnology group in the 
UK. The major source of 
funding is from industry and 
the research and PhD pro- 
grammes are directly related 
to industrial needs. 

But the most fascinating 
initiative at Cranfield must be 
the International Eco-Tech- 
nology Centre. It was estab- 
lished under a donation from 
the Honda Foundation for 
Internationa] research in sci- 
ences and technologies which 
can contribute to. the well- 
being of this and fiiture gener- 
ations and their environment 



An army of scientists 


The Royal College of 
Military Science can be found 
hi a parkland estate 
between Oxford and 
Swindon. It has been there 
for 40 years, but it was only 
two years ago that 
Cranfield won the Ministry of 
Defence contract for the 
academic teaching and 
research facilities on what 
is now called the Sbrivenham 
campus. It comprises the 
Cranfield Faculty of Military 
Science Technology and 
Management and is led by the 
Principal and Dean, 

Professor Frank Hartley. 


Students are drawn from 
many countries, many of 
whom are planning a 
military career, but there are 
others who are aiming at 
civilian careers in order to 
prevent the college 
becoming a purely 
introspective organization. 


It provides an extensive 
teaching programme 
aimed at undergraduates 
(BSc) and postgraduates 
(MSc, DPhil and PhD), as 
well as staff officer and 
specialist courses covering the 
entire spectrum of defence 
engineering and management 


The civilian leaching staff 
provide the instruction in 
scientific and 

technological matters, and the 
Army directs staff lectures 
on the nature of the threat 

- , , . . . which it is the job of the 

On test: A te chn ici an tries out a new shock absorber at the Royal Military College of Science armed forces to counter. 


The Royal Ordnance 
Factories have established an 
operational analysis and 
systems assessment unit at 
Shrivenham, typifying the 
industry-academia interface 
which is the hallmark of 
the Cranfield campus. 


Farming with the aid of statistics from the sky 


As it blossoms from its 
embryo stage, the centre win 
build the interdisciplinary 
teams needed to explore the 
frontiers of molecular biology 
and genetic engineering. Also 
to develop novel materials 
through new processes and to 
investigate possible new meth- 
ods of communication. 


When agricultural engineers 
and tractor dealers petitioned 
successfully 25 years ago for a 
college to help to meet the 
needs of world agriculture, the 
possibility of them extracting 
. some of the vital data from a 
satellite orbiting the globe was 
little more than a dream. 

Now it is a reality. Geosta- 
tionary and orbital satellites 
provide a virtually unlimited 
data source on the natural 
resources of the earth and 
much of that data is analysed 
by Silsoe College, Cran field's 
Faculty of Agricultural Engi- 
neering, Food Production and 
Rural Land. 

Silsoe College research, or 
an aspjrct of it, is aimed at 
extracting and interpreting the 


images from satellites, such as 
LANDSAT, for solving practi- 
cal problems in agriculture, 
forestry and land resource 
management. 


It is now possible to predict 
crop yields by measuring spec- 
tral reflection of winter wheat 
in infra-red and • red 
wavebands during crop re- 
naissance. The next stage of 
the study — one of many 
carried out by the college — is 
to determine whether such 
predictions can be made by 
the much cheaper use of light 
aircraft. 


The college has its own 
campus, 14 miles down the 
road from the institute and, in 


true Cranfield expansionist 


tradition, is working on fur- 
ther developments. 

There is the possibility of 
acquiring Bedford College 
Farm at Silsoe. enhancing 
considerably the educational 
and research potential of the 
faculty. 

The college, formerly 
known as the National College 
of Agricultural Engineering, 
arose out of a petition from 
organizations such as the In- 
stitution of Agricultural Engi- 
neers and the Tractor Dealers 
Association. They wanted a 
college to provide engineering 
support to meet the needs of 
wortd agriculture. 

Now it has nearly 400 
students from Britain and 
overseas on long and short

Learning without frontiers 


Cranfield expertise, like 
knowledge itself, admits to 
few boundaries. Its influence 
is being spread throughout the 
world. Not only are there 
thousands of overseas gradu- 
ates bearing Cranfield degrees, 
but research and development 
are also carried out in many 
countries. 

In Europe a close connec- 
tion has been formed with the 
University of Technology at 
Compiegne, France, and a 
double degree scheme has 
been in operation since 1979. 
Under the scheme British 
engineers can study for the 
Diploroe dTngenieur and 
French students can study for 
the Cranfield MSc. 

There are plans for similar 
schemes with l’Ecole 
Nationale Superieure 
dTngenieurs de Constructions 
Aeronaut iques at Toulouse 
and PEcole Superieure de 
Marseille. 

A further course is being 
undertaken at Compfegne by 
the Cranfield School of Man- 
agement. This European Man- 
agement of Technology 


programme is being held 
jointly with Compiegne and 
two other European institu- 
tions, the. Technischo 
Hochschuleof Aachen and the 
Institute of Management, In- 
novation and Technology in 
Stockholm. 

Cranfield has run a number 
of courses in the United States 
and has a strong connection 
with the University of 
Wisconsin.

has recently been formed in 
Phoenix, Arizona, to market 
signal processing services de-

It will be a showpiece for 
information technology (XT) 
where all aspects of the subject 
will be taught with the most 
modern equipment," claims 
Sir Henry Chilver, the vice- 
chancellor and spearhead of 
the drive to create a novel 
academy specializing in IT. 

The hew Institute of Infor- 
mation Technology, with an 
initial fending of £4 million 
and 25 industrial sponsors, 
will make academic history 
this autumn when it opens its 
doors for the first time. 

Information technology is 
the marriage of telecommuni- 
cations and computer sciences 
and their related applications 
—and it needs to be taught in a 
new way. It is this concept 
which is behind the IT insti- 
tute. Initially, the institute will 
be accommodated in 
Bletchley Park, Milton 
Keynes, before a new tailor- 
made space age building is 
built. 

The institute has gained 
political momentum during 
the past two years in the wake 
of government reports which 
highlighted the crisis feeing 
Britain in skills shortages

ensure that Britain matches 
the industrial manufacturing 
performance of its major in- 
dustrial competitors, particu- 
larly West Germany. France, 
the US and Japan. 

Technical graduates who 
have been taught the skills of 
managing both IT equipment 
and people are in short supply 

The gap. is stark in the IT 
sector which is expected to 
have a trade deficit of £9,000 
million by the early 1990s. 
The Institute of Information 
Technology ax Cranfield is an 
attempt to stop the rot. Sir 
Henry’s energy and the crisis 
atmosphere generated in the 
wake of numerous scare re- 
ports focusing on skills short- 
ages have been the catalysts 
needed to launch the novel 
project. 

But Sir Henry is aware that 
a new approach to education 
is needed. Industry not only 
requires a new type of gradu- 
ate whose education has been 
tailored to its needs, but an 


One of the basic reasons for establishing an Institute of 
Information Technology is the creation of a college where 
students can train with the proper equipment. 

A new centre called the IT centre has been established 
marrying the resources of Cranfield Institute of Technology 
with those of Shrivenham, the Royal Military College ol 
Science, which has an established reputation as a centre for edu- 
cation and research in defence technology. 

The college is equipped to offer po s t gra d u ate courses in 
applied science, engineering, management and military technol- 
ogy, and a range of short courses to civilian as weD as nufitaiy 
students. In recent years ft has attracted students from more 
than 40 countries. 

The Information Technology Centre pools the resources of 
both the Cranfield and Shrivenham campuses, allowing the 
centre to cater for 150 undergraduate and 150 postgraduate stu- 
dents. It also runs short courses that are attended by kSOO stu- 
dents each year. 


industry better placed to assist 
in the funding of such a 
project. To this end the. IT 
institute was established as the 
first collaborative venture be- 
tween industry and academia. 

Within five years 4,000 
shortcouise students will at- 
tend the institute with 200 
postgraduate and possibly the 
same number of undergradu- 
ates. About 150 lecturers will 
teach and assist the students. 
In addition “several" industri- 


al professorships are to be 
created. 

According to Sir Henry, 
some of the industrial 
sponsors’ contributions will 
be the supply of top class 
personnel who will be released 
from their industrial duties to 
lecture at the institute. 

Information technology, by. 
definition, must be taught and 
researched with the most up- 
to-date equipment 

So strong bonds have been

pected to increase to nearly 
600 in order to meet demand 
for postgraduate degrees and 
students who want to take 
their BSc to agricultural 
engineering. 

The college offers courses in 
the application of technology 
and management to agricul- 
ture and food production, 
promotes product innovation 
and market development 
through research and develop- 
ment, and contributes to agri- 
cultural and rural 
development, particularly 
overseas, through 

consultancies. 

It is the research and devel- 
opment and the consultancies, 
as elsewhere in the institute. 


that provides the finance for 
the college to meet the de- 
mand for degree courses. Dur- 
ing the past year its revenue 
has increased by more than 50 
percent 

The college offers two hon- 
ours degree courses. The 
Lhree-year BEng course jn 
agricultural engineering is pro- 
vided for students who want 


to practise engineering at pro- 
fessional level in the agricul- 
ture and food-related 
industries. The four-year 
sandwich BSc course in agri- 
cultural technology and man- 
agement prepares candidates 
for a career in technical and 
commercial management of 
agricultural and related 
industries. 


forged with industry. The 
major investing companies in 
the IT project are to assist in 
the management of the insti- 
tute by having their represen- 
tatives on a board of 
management 

The head of the institute has 
yet to be appointed but will be 
someone with a track record 
in IT and a reputation in the 
industry. The major investors 
include British Aerospace, 
British Gas, British Petro- 
leum, British Telecom, Cable 
and Wireless and the 
Longman Group. Companies 
supplying hardware include 
BICC DEC, Hewlett Packard, 
Inmos. Intel, IBM, Fericom, 
Tektronix and Rank Xerox. 
Among the suppliers of soft- 
ware and other resources are 
CAP, Cognos. GEC Software. 
McDonnell Douglas, Oracle, 
Scicon, SDRGGAE Interna- 
tional and Uniras. 

They say:“It is the first 
industry-funded higher educa- 


tion establishment of its kind 
devoted entirely to the teach- 
ing and the development of 
information technology - 
The new institute will be 
managed as an independent 
organization and will be run as 
a commercial business rather 
than on traditional academic 
administration lines. Instead 
of a vice-chancellor and a 
senate, it will have a chief 
executive reporting to a board 
of directors. 


Research activities will fo- 
cus on key IT application 
areas such as networking, 
parallel processing, software 
engineering, artificial intelli- 
gence and microelectronics. 


The short courses and con- 
version courses are almost as 
important to the Chilver blue- 
print as the research work.

OBITUARY 

SIR MOSES FINLEY 
Radical approach to Ancient History 


Sir Moses Finley, FBA, who 
died on June 23 at I&e age oi 
72, had been Master of Dar- 
win College, Cambridge, from - 
1976 to -1982, and Professor of 
Ancient History in tire Um- 
vecsrtyfroni 1970 to 1979. 

Few ancient historians have 
made as large an impact on the 
historical world in general, 
and Finley was at his best as a 
source of in^nraiion and 
.friendly advice to able stu- 
dents and young academics in: 
this country and abroad. 

: Born in the United Stales 
on May2Q, I912,heeraduared 
BA at Syracuse University 
when- only 15 and MA at 
-Columbia University two 
-yeais later, his principle sub- 
jects were then psychology 
and American Constitutional 
Law. 

' Fired by W. L. Westennann 
to study ancient history, he 
then learned Greek and Latin, 
'while financing himself from 
Ids own earnings and those of 
his wife, Mary Thiers, a school 
teacher whom he married in 
1932, and who remained to 
the end his close companion 
and . staunch support. Her 
death occurred only the day 
before his own. - - 
After graduating, he took up 
a research post with the 
Encyclopaedia of the Social 
Sciences (1930-33), was a re- 
search assistant to the. Roman 
lawyer A- A. Schiller at Co-' 
lumbia University (1933-34), 
held a rpsearcb fellowship in 
history at the same university 
(1934-35), and a part time 
leaching position in history at 
the City College of New York 
0934-42). 

In this period he came 
under the influence of the 
expatriate Frankfurt institute 
for Social Research, associat- 
ed with Columbia University 
from 1934. 

He participated in its semi- 
nars. reviewed' books for its 
journal. and was employed as 
translator. 

His radical . instincts, en- 
couraged by contact with Max 
Horkheimer and Herbert 
Marcuse among others, and 
his reading in social history 
and social theory, led to 
activity on behalf of the 
Republicans in the Spanish 
Civil War, and to fund raising, 
for Russian war relief during 
the Second World- War. 

Although after the war Ire 
preferred an academic life and 
was lecturer and later assistant 
professor at Rutgers Universi- 
ty from 1 948-52. these diverse 
actrviies bad left a permanent 
impress. 

Among ancient historians 
of his time, h&'feixuliarity at 
once with law, economics and 
sociology was unparalleled, 
and was deployed to cast new 



light oa ancient Greece; while 
-practical. experience made his 
activity effective m education 
antf- academic politi cs, in 
which he played an enogm 
part in bis short career in his 
country of origin. 

His response to McCartby- 
jsm was to ' launch among 
university teachers the Ameri- 
can Committee for the De- 
fence of International 
Freedom. 

- For this activity he, was 
called before a Congressional 
Committee in 1952. He in- 
voked tire 5th Amendment 
and refused to co-operate with 
the committee. This led to bis 
dismissal by Rutgers. 

However, be was already 
well-known from his pub- 
lished work, and was invited 
to lecture at Oxford and 
Cambridge in 1954-55, and in 
1 955 he received a permanent 
teaching post at Cambridge; 
he became a reader in 1964; 
and from 1957-1976 he was a 
fellow of Jesus College. 

He acquired British nation- 
ality in ' 2962, and was 
knighted in 1979. He did not 
again visit the United States 
until 1971-72, when he gave 
the Sather Lectures at Berke- 
ley. and was feted at Raigers 
and elsewhere. 

■ He remained a radical, 
drawing on tire inspiration of 
both Marx and Weber. 

Meanwhile a doctoral thesis 
of 1950, published in- 1952 as 
Studies in Land and Credit in 
Ancient Athens, had won 
Finley international acclaim 
for its skilful legal analysis and 
the novel views it expounded 
on the 4th Century Athenian 
economy. ■ • 

His second major work. The 
Worid - of Odysseus (1954), 
which has gone into. several 
editions and has been translat- 
ed into many languages, estab- 
lished him as “the best living 
social historian of Greece and 
the one most prepared id "face 
the methodologica] problems 
which social history implies" 
(Arnaldo Morntgliano). . 


MAURICE DURUELE 


Maurice Durufle, the 
French organist and compos- 
er, has died in Paris. He was 
.82. 

Reticent in terms of his 
creative output Dnrnfle was 
nevertheless admired for a 
senes of well-crafted ivories, 
executed in a musical lan- 
guage which. looked back to 
plainsong and forward to.bril- 
liant harmonies and rich 
orchestration. 

. Among rhese his Requiem is 
preeminent. . 

He was bom inLouviers cra 
January 11. 1 902, and from 
the age of 10 attended a choir 
school where be was taught 
piano and organ. 

In 1919 he went to; -Baris 
where he became assistant 
organist to -Toumemue at Ste 
Clothilde. He also studied 
organ and composition at the 
Paris Conservatoire from 
1919-22. ' 

In 1930 he became organist 
of St Etienne-du-Mom, and- in 
that year his Prelude, adagio et 
choral varie sur le ,Vem 
Creator” won him a prize 
from the Amis de POrgue. 

Trots Domes (1932) and an 
organ suite (r933) further 
enhanced his reputation, and 
in t 1936 he received tire 
Blbmennthal Foundation 
Prize.' 


He was appointed' Professor 
of Harmony at the • Fsris 
Conservatoire » 1943 mid 
remained there until 1969. ■ 

Dunrfte’s most frequently 
performed work is his Requi- 
em of 1 947, a composition of 
great Jreauty, combining as it 
does the simplicities of tire 
Gregorian chant with lusher 
harmonies and more complex . 
orchestration. 

"The Requiem was te earn 
him an international reputa- 
tion which wasco rnplemented 
by hi* tours, as -an organist, of 
Europe, tbe-Soviet Union and 
the USA.

Mock gravity theory for universe 


By Pearce Wright, Science Editor 


In die very early stages of the 
development of the universe, 
the force that polled matter 
together to form star systems 
in the pregala ctic period was 
‘Tnock gravity’’, according to a 
theory put forward by • 


two 


scientists at foe' University of 
Arizona’s Steward 


Observatory. 

In a gravity field existing 
today, like that of the Barth, 
the effect fa negligible. For 
mock gravity fa a peculiar side 
effect of radiation pressure 
and the propulsive force exert- 
ed by light. and other- sources 
on energy. * - 

But in the space between 
stars, where radiation comes 
more or less evenly -from. all 
directions, tro . neighbouring 
dust particles can be ;drinfa 
together becanse-each fies ta 
the other’s shadow: This rau- 
tnal shadowing — mock gravi- 
ty -can be 200 times as strong 
as tire gravitational attraction 
between the particles. 

The proposal comes Grom 
Craig J. Hogan, and Simon 
DJVC White, of foe Steward 
Observatory, tain artic le in 
Nature, ta which they argne 

that foe mode- gravity -that 
cheated the gato* was 5 , the 
result of Instabilities . in the 


radiation pressures, leading to 
foe dnstming.of matter into 

sp inning gnlmwy . 

Dr Hogan said font al- 
though it did not fit neatly 
within the' usual -Ideas for 
galaxy formation, the prelimi- 
hary calculations were surpris- 
ingly consistent. Moreover, no 
one had fonnd -a dear way to 
nrfe out mock grav i ty as the 
key mechanism for galaxy 
formation. 

Exp l a n a ti o n s for the irregu- 
lar but highly organized .ar- 
rangement ' of galaxies have 
called , on phenomenon like 
“galactic wrinkles’', or .fluctu- 
ations early in the bow wave of 
gas and partides from the big 
bang, . to account for the 
present shape of foe universe. 

-Another theory fa that Over 
a period of time foe very early 
wniversewas punctuated tafoe

voids around which foe galax- 
ies are massed. 

The process of modi gravi- 
ty. in which some radiation fa 
absorbed by particles and 
other radiation is reflected,' !! 
very complicated to test ffi- 
perinreotaHy. However, foe 
s cienti sts say it might be 
possible to build an apparatus 

in which foe mock gravitation- 
al acceleration exceeds normal 
terrestrial gravity. 

They suggest a small .vacu- 
um chamber, with some dnst 
particles and some fllnmtaa- 
tion. To eliminate the effects of

He was, however, no oedi^

is an . uncompromising desun-

refusal to come to terms wi$6 
the limitations of tfa'

Aff this, and the . seat 
breadth of his knowledge and 
interests, which took in aft, 
literature and religion, ns well 
as political, economic and 
social institutions, make fas 
works of high importance 
the professional scholar, : . 

Finley was a meat lecturer 
and tocher, within Cam- 
bridge. he revived ancient 
history and brought it injo 
repute- among professional 
historians and students alike. 

As Master of Darwin, fas 
priorities were to raise fee 
academic stature of the col- 
lege, broaden the educational 
interests of its graduate add 
senior members, and create a 
congenial atmosphere condu- 
cive to academic intercourse. 

The immensely soccessfal 
annual Darwin Lecture Series, 
inaugurated in 1977. was tits 
creation, and the list of speak- 
ers reflect his own breadth of 
mteresL 

- He also inspired the Darwin 
centenary conference of which 
the proceedings were pub- 
lished as Evolution from Mole- 
cules to Men in 1983. 

His d eath cut shon a return 
to Greek Jaw, a further state- 
ment ort sfavery, perhaps his 
most abiding interest, and an 
ambitious project on the so- 
cial history of antiquity.- -

The dot preceding the early

perfect opportunity to cele- 
brate the joys of tranquil

work-weary fathers. Whose 

■ Baby? (Haines) is the para- 
digm of the form. 

Hosted with excradating 
bonhomie by die avuncular 
a Bernie Winters, the show 
‘ consists simply of a three-man

The Opera Theatre of Saint 
Louis has a reputation for 
careful production and an 
atmosphere that brings the 
best out of young singers: 
as die man who made that 
reputation steps down, 
Paul Griffiths reports on 
the new season’s offerings 


Joyce Gayer revealing a voice 
of bright promise and thrust 
as Constanza iu Die 
Entf&hnmg ans dem SeraO 


Colin Graham's dramatic 
coup in wring «wwn children 
to mime tie coronation hi 
The Journey to Rhams 


Serious comedy 
and frothy farce 



After 10 years. Opera Theatre Saint 
Louis has lost its prime mover, 
Richard Gaddes, but not the welcom- 
ing ambience that cheers fine perfor- 
mances from rising young singers, or 
the sense of care and responsibility in 
the productions. No doubt the hit of 
the present season will be counted to 
be the American premise of 
Rossini's Journey to Rbeims, pro- 
duced by rinliii Graham in a manner 
at once ebullient and affectionate, 
and thrown off in fine style by a lively 
cast.. But equally distinguished was 
the sober, luminous and illuminating 
production of Die Entfthrang by 
Graham Vide it is good to knowthis 
will be repeated by Opera North next 
season. 

Vick makes the piece an unusually 
serious opera, echoing sometimes 
uncannily with motifs to be devel- 
oped in Cos! and The Magic Flute 
especially, but also substantial in its 
own right. Sometimes he presses the 
dramatic weight too hard: a scene for 
the Pasha mid Constanza at table 
opens in still dumb-show for several 
minutes, and simply cannot seize 
attention even in the relatively 
intimate ambience of the Loretto- 
Hilton Theater. But generally, with 
the help of Andrew Porter’s transla- 
tion and an intelligent cast, he draws 
out full and dignified characters. 

Joyce Guyer (a* voice of bright 
promise and: thrust) as Constanza, 
John LaPierre as Belmonte and Peter 
Francis James as the Pasha all had 


room to find a wealth of variety 
among the distressed nobilities of 
love, while David Eisier provided an 
ardent, determined young Pedrfllo 
and Cheryl Parrish a Blonde of cool 
level-headedness but attractively 
warm vocal colour. It could possibly 
have been too uncomic a comedy 
were it not that Kevin Rupnik's set 
offers at once severity and easy 
opportunities for farce: the former in 
the blank masonry right across the 
stage, the latter in the multiplicity of 
doors it turns out to contain. It also 
offers inviting spaces for lighting, to 
bathe a production of assiduous 
penetration. 

The Rossini was more simply a 
frolic. This is the coronation opera 
that had its first modem performance 
at Pesaro in 1984, and Saint Louis 
had the advantage of advice not only 
from the score's reconstructor, Janet 
Johnson, but from the Rossini schol- 
ar Philip Gossett, who worked with 
the singers in developing an appropri- 
ately flamboyant, exhibitionist style 
of ornamentation. The naturalness of 
the result, along with the sometimes 
spectacular bravura, must be a tribute 
to him as well as to the abilities of the 
singers, among whom the tenor 
Richard Croft showed himself a 
radiant artist of coloratura lyricism. 

Nobody else was quite on that level 
of perfected achievement, though 
there were strong contributions from 
the soprano Donna Zapola (possessed 
of an opulent but dear sound, and a 


stage presence big enough for her to 
act the prima donna), from the quite 
different, colder and decisive soprano 
Stephanie Friede, from the amusingly 
po-faced mezzo Melanie Sonnenberg 
and from Patricia Schumann as the 
light-spirited, warm-hearted hostess. 
Others offered effective character 
performances: Eric Halfvarson as the 
Don Alfonso-like cunning magus, 
Kurt link as the irrepressibly good- 
humoured German general and Jan 
Opalach as Lord Sidney (nice to know 
that English stuffiness is still as funny 
in Saint Louis in 1986 as it was in Par- 
is in 1825). 

Colin Graham shuffled the cards 
brilliantly, but his chief dramatic 
coup was to use tiny children, 
magnificently dressed as maskers, for* 
the ballet and the mimed coronation: 
an exactly right injection of levity 
into the optimistic finale (after all, we 
know, as Rossini may well have 
suspected, that Charles X was not 
entirely a Good Thing). Richard 
Buckley's musical direction, and the 
playing of the Saint Louis Symphony, 
brought out the froth and the 
sumptuousness of the score. 

The other journey outside standard 
repertory was to Knoxville, summer 
1915, for William Mayer’s adaptation 
of A Death in the Family — if 
“adaptation” is quite the word for a 
ruthless reduction of James Agee's 
admittedly pretentious prose to make 
bald dialogue fora three-act melodra- 
ma. There is a nice little scene where 


an access of vainglory on the boy 
Rufos’s part is boldly bodied forth in 
a staged fantasy, but otherwise the 
music hardly does more than provide 
watered-down Britten ish supporting 
sounds. Menoui-like outbursts of 
diatonic passion, and Americana. 
Still, the evening was held together by 
some excellent performances, notably 
from Jake Gardner, who sang and 
acted the ideal dad, from the treason- 
able young lyric soprano Dawn 
Upshaw, from the appealing mezzo 
Phyllis Pancella and from the strong, 
ripe black soprano Deborah Ford. 
Mayer had at least provided chances 
for an ensemble company to show its 
strengths. 

The Tales of Hoffmann, of course, 
is something else, and perhaps too big 
and star-centred for Saint Louis. 
Colin Graham's production followed 
his 1970 ENO staging in distancing 
itself from the traditional score, 
which meant that the sensitive, pure- 
toned soprano Juliana Grodek was 
not obliged to lore her calm in the 
usual Olympia aria, but the smallness 
of the stage and the disappointingly 
prosaic lead from Michael Myers 
made the opera seem, perhaps not 
wholly unsuitably, misguided. Car- 
men next year seems a still more 
parlous notion: one looks forward 
much more to Handel and another 
Rossini from this choice company, 
which could be set for another decade 
of stylish achievement under the new 
leadership of Charles MacKay. 


St Magnus Festival 

Awakening ghosts 


The Lighthouse 
Phoenix Cinema, 
Kirkwall 

Here, at the end of the St 
Magnus Festival, was a strik- 
ing demonstration that there 
is indeed a local audience for 
Maxwell Davies, enough to 
pack the cinema with several 
hundred people to see his 
opera of hysterical lighthouse- 
keepers. And they were re- 
warded whh a performance of 
vivid intensity. The Fires of 
London under Gunter Bauer 
Schenk brimmed with life and 
character in every depart- 
ment, though special praise 
must go to Richard Watkins, 
the horn player, for his 
whooping virtuoso interroga- 
tions and to Mark Glentworth 
for his fast slaloms up and 
down the marimba. The cast 
too was excellent. 

Neil Mackie is the perfect 
Davies tenor, with a bright 
radiance that lives dangerous- 
ly in its sensitivity. Henry 
Herford was the strong Blazes, 
the imem peraien ess of toe 
man enhanced by his Scottish 
accent (characterization in 
this work is on that level of 
directness), and Ian Comboy 
offered a warm yet dark 
portrait of the self-satisfied 
puritan. 

Only the piece itself remains 
a puzzle. Ghost stories gener- 
ally work because tbey set out 
from a thoroughly recogniz- 
able world and then introduce 
strangeness, but The Light- 
house is bizarre and grotesque 
right from the start, with the 
opening court scene so elabo- 
rately stylized and the main 
act at once set in a style of 


caricature: Arthur is singing in 
goody-goody falsetto almost 
as soon as he opens his mouth. 
Then again, the set of song- 
famasies for the three keepers 
looks a wooden device, each 
one an unashamed parody, 
each following the last as if 
tbey were party pieces. Yet the 
power of the climax is not only 
unforgettable but also un- 
avoidable, no matter how well 
one t hinks one knows the 
work. 

Perhaps this is not such a 
conundrum. Davies may be 
giving one every reason to 
discount the opera on dramat- 
ic grounds, only then reveal- 
ing that music really can 
awaken the ghosts we have 
thought to be freed from. If so, 
David William's production 
may be operating in a similar 
fashion. Some of its naturalis- 
tic detail, like the mimed 
walking upstairs and even the 
lighthouse itself, invites deri- 
sion, and yet the return of the 
keepers as automated dum- 
mies is a telling realization of 
the ending. 

With this performance 
Davies's term as artistic direc- 
tor of the Si Magnus Festival 
came to an end. His farewell 
announcement left no doubt 
that he hopes his successor, 
Glenys Hughes, will hold to 
his commitment to “the high- 
est possible artistic stan- 
dards”. It also left no doubt 
that this has been a struggle. 
The 1987 festival is scheduled 
to revive The Martyrdom of St 
Magnus, but there must be 
doubt that it will be able, 
without Davies at the fore- 
front, to be at once interna- 
tional and local

For those with memories of 
Broadway in the 1950s, or 
cherished old recordings of 
Candide and The Music Man, 
it will seem rather late in the 
day for anybody to be discov- 
ering Barbara Cook. However, 
an event is an event however 
long overdue; and Tuesday 
night's West End debut 
milked a personal conquest 
outmatching anything I have 
ever witnessed at the Palladi- 
um or Drury Lane. 


Concert, 

ECQ/Litton 
Elizabeth Hall 


The similarities between Man- 
rice Durufle's Requiem and 
' Fame's muled masterpiece of 
half a century earlier have 
tended to obscure the later 
work’s unique properties. In- 
habiting mudi the same world 
of misty harmonies and unde- 
monstrative lyricism, Durufle 
is at once more ascetic yet 
‘more extrovert. The modal 
contours and metrical free- 
doms of plainsong seep from 
Dun>fl6*s melodies like in- 
. cense from a thurible; but in 
combination it is their sensu- 
ality rather than their spiritu- 
ality that overwhelms, and at 
The natural climaxes of the 
Requiem Durufle strives for 
(and often achieves) a bolder 
impact than was ever part of 
Fame’s scheme. 

These sudden transitions, 
from ecclesiastical polyphony 
to brilliant fervour, were espe- 
cially noticeable under An- 
drew Lftton's direction. He 
made much, for example, of 
the sudden surge in the 
“Kyrie” where the trumpets 
break away from their cantus 
finnus lines into strident par- 
allel triads.. There .was a 
similar excitement in his han- 
dling of the “Sanctus”, where 
the cross-rhythms and unset- 
tled modulations are suddenly 
marshalled into an unambign- 
‘ ous blare of E flat major. 

Perhaps his emphasis on. 
urgency eliminated some of 
the work’s, majesty: the accele- 
rando in “Libera me’’ seemed 
artificially whipped up, and 
the gorgeous final cadence of 
the work (a ripe slither ending 
on a jazzy ninth) should suidy 
have been milked for as long 
as the singers had breath. 
Otherwise Litton deserves 
credit for revealing the poten- 
tial of this under-performed 
.work. 

So, too, do his forces. The 
Tallis Chamber Choir dis- 
played an appealing timbre 
and considerable control in 
the forte passages. John Scott 
skimmed through the com- 
plex organ passageworic dex- 
trously, though Durufle surely 
hart in mind an instrument 
■with a . grander palette r of 
colours! The mezzo Judith

Anthony M ichacls-M oore

appropriate restraint. 

• Earlier the English Chamber 
Orchestra brought style and 
pungency to for jollier French 
repertoire:. Debussy’s Petite

Opera in Europe 

Primitive material devastatingly used 


Katya Kabanova 
Smetana Theatre, 
Prague 

The fascination of Katya 
Kabanova lies not so much in 
a quixotic old composer's 
sense of engagement with a 
harried young woman as in 
the way Janafek uses the most 
primitive of materials to such 
devastating effect. The relent- 
less ostinatos. the bald libretto 
and the telescoping of events 
in toe last act — all are tools of 
a compression which help to 
generate the explosive poten- 
tial of the musical drama. The 
best productions — like the 
latest staged by the National 
Theatre ensemble in Prague — 
recognize that this concentra- 
tion of tension and emotion in 
the score precludes anything 
but the most supportive of 
visual settings. 

This production was staged 
for the Prague Spring Festival, 
one of East Europe's happiest 
musical celebrations, which 
has just passed its fortieth 
anniversary. The staging bene- 
fits greatly from the experi- 
ence of Josef Svoboda, who 
has designed three previous 
postwar productions of Katya 
in Prague. With a double 
gauze to project the natural 
elements of foliage, storm and 
river, the set is another unmis- 
takable Svoboda creation, full 
of perspective and ample 
atmosphere. 

The period is the 1860s, as 
Jand£ek wanted, with authen- 
tic costumes by Olga FflipL 
Religious references are ac- 
knowledged in toe icons deco- 
rating toe Kabanov home, and 
whh a touch of irony in the 
crucifix worn by Kabanicha. 
Apart from the storm se- 
quence. which takes place in 
the shelter of a rode under- 
pass, the Volga hovers pas- 
sively behind each scene in a 
series o (black-and-white stills, 
its gentle eddies and flickering 
sunlight ■ suggesting ambiva- 
lence until a wan tranquility 
settles for Katya's suicide. 

Visually, then , it is a.dasric 
staging and . one that draws 
profitably on the cohesion of 
the Prague ensemble. It is 
to bear the work sung in 
and to observe m Karel 
Jeraek's stage direction, sot 
just an acknowledgement of 
the orchestra’s transcendent 
power but an avoidance of toe 
stereotyped acting perfor- 
mances to be seen in much of 
toe other Prague repertory. 
Several voices are familiar 
from the acclaimed Mackerras 
recording, the. main exception , 
being Gabriels Befiaekova's 
comely ...and. life-enhancing 
Katya, • 

- Miss Beflafikova deserves § 



Radiant, life-enhancing power: Gabriela BffraCkova (left) 
with the bright stage presence of Lfbuse M&rova 


toe widest possible exposure 
in this role. She sings with 
radiant power, her voice never 
seeming underpressure except 
when conveying the quiver of 
intimate emotion. She also 
shows a good deal more 
sophistication than the or- 
chestra under Framisek Vaj- 
nar, who conducts a reading of 
raw energy and impulse. 


The other characters act as 
the human surfaces by which 
Katya is emotionally caressed 
and tormented, their physical 
relationship mere symbols of 
her isolation. There is the 
girlish affection Katya re- 
ceives from the Varvara of 
Lib use Marova, whose bright 
stage presence makes up for 
her ochre timbre. There is 


everything of the foul-mou- 
thed spitting brute in Dalibor 
Jedlicka's Dikoy, whose drun- 
ken intimacy with Kabanicha 
goes just for enough to appal 
toe imagination. And there is 
the Boris of Miroslav Kopp, a 
young tenor whose timidity 
throws into relief Katya's one- 
sided need to love and be 
loved. 

For all his coarse vocal 
manners, toe Tichon of 
Miroslav Frydlewicz is toe 
ideal foil to both Katya and 
Kabanicha: his bulky frame is 
no more able to embrace his 
wife than separate from his 
mother’s apron strings, and he 
caves in at toe end like an 
oveigrown schoolboy blub- 
bing at Mummy's knees. 

Nadezda Kniplova sings 
Kabanicha, a role which, 
along with Kosielnicka in 
Jertufa, she has made her own 
during toe past 20 years on 
stage and on record. Though 
the top of toe voice is less true 
than before, her command of 
the jagged exclamations of 
Kabamcba's vocal line is in- 
tact, and it is hard to distin- 
guish where her character- 
ization leaves toe voice and 
becomes toe person. She glow- 
ers over Katya as Act I 
shudders to its sinister conclu- 
sion, she jerks Katya's face 
into token subservience in the 
domestic scene that follows, 
and triumphantly prevents 
anyone from interrupting 
Katya's confession. It is an 
awesome portrait of human 
malignancy.

Wells windfall 


An imaginative and unusual 
act of sponsorship announced 
yesterday will save Sadler's 
Wells Theatre for toe immedi- 
ate future and contribute sub- 
stantially to many other areas 
of dance in Britain. Half a 
million pounds is on offer over 
two years in a package named 
Partners in Dance. Three- 
quarters of that is a gift from 
toe Digital Equipment Com- 
pany, toe balance being made 
up of matching grants from the 
Government's Business Spon- 
sorship Incentive Scheme. 

The biggest share, of 
£200,000, goes to Sadler's 
Wells. A further £100,000 
pays for toe DEC Dance 
Awards, open to any dance 
company that receives Arts 
Coned] or Regional Arts sop- 
port. They are for commission- 
ing new choreography. 

The rest of toe money is to 
be shared among London Fes- 
tival Ballet, towards a new 
Nutcracker this Christmas, 
Ballet Rambert and London 
Contemporary Dance Theatre 
to support touring and London 
season, and toe Royal Acade- 


m 

School of 
ship foods. 

Geoff Shingles, 


and toe Central 
for sebotar- 


a mm a gin g 


director of Digital, said they 
had chosen to concentrate on 
one art where they could make 
a worthwhile impact, and that 
they would offer additional 
help in the form of continuing 
advice on marketing, adminis- 
tration and other functions. 

The grant to Sadler’s Wells 
makes the theatre safe for this 
year and significantly helps 
next year, allowing advance 
planning to resume. A full 
programme of dance seasons 
for the autumn will be an- 
nounced next week. 

This does not completely 
solve the problem of inade- 
quate housing for dance in 
London. For that, the profes- 
sion is now recognizing that 
Sadler's Wells and a larger 
theatre are both needed. Nego- 
tiations continue to try to 
secure the Lyceum; a principal 
in them says the process is 
“like swimming in mud”, but a 
guarded optimism remains. 

J.P. 


A middle-aged lady of unre- 
markable appearance. Miss 
Cook wastes no time over 
transatlantic courtesies or s to- 
nes about the old days. She is 
there to sing, and what she has 
to tell us about herself comes 
exclusively through the music 
She comes on singing “I've 
Loved a Piano” (as well she 
might with such an accompa- 
nist as the steel-fingered Wally 
Harper), announces tersely 
"George Gershwin wrote 
these songs” and launches into 
a programme that variously 
causes your heart to pound 
and your mouth to drop open 
in ecstatic appreciation of 
such sound and such emotion- 
al truth. 

And, as with all great per- 
formers, all you can really say 
is that she pushes her material 
beyond the usual boundaries. 
Most obviously she is a sopra- 
no of extreme vocal purity and 
range of colour. When she 
delivers a fastidious lyric, toe 
effect is to make singing seem 
an i deal form of human 
speech. Every time a line 
recurs it means something 
different When she goes into 
scat or tears into “Sweet 
Georgia Brown” you can feel 
the earth shifting under your 
feet Jazz rhythms are an- 
chored to the bar-line, so that, 
when she tugs loose from h, 
syncopation appears as a feat 
of amazing physical strength. 

Whether in stormy arrange- 
ments of great old numbers or 
more recent songs by Harry 
Nilsson and Melissa Manches- 
ter, toe partnership with Mr 
Harper is crudaL He is an 
accompanist who gives no 
quarter. The top of the 
Yamaha is removed, and 
when it comes to climaxes be 
plays it like an an vfl. The joint 
performance is at once an 
immaculately precise partner- 
ship and a merciless contest 
London at present has nothing 
more thrilling to offer.

All’s well that ends well as Globe goes ahead 


By Gavin Bell 
Arts Correspondent 

Mr Sam Wanamaker. an 
American actor and director, 
has confirmed plans for an 
authentic replica of 
Shakespeare's Globe Play- 
house on its original site on 
London's South Bank, after a 
High Court wrangle was set- 
tled yesterday. 

Mr Justice Harman an- 
nounced an out of court settle- 
ment on the dispute over a 
1981 agreement to provide 
council land for the theatre at 
Greenmore Wharf. South- 
wark. as part of a redevelop- 
ment scheme to have been 
carried out by Derno Estates. 

Under its terms. Southwark 
council will pay Derno 
£7J million in compensation 
for failure to implement the 
agreement, and give the 
Shakespeare Globe Trust a 
125-year tease on the one-acre 
site at a peppercorn rent. 

The present Labour council, 
elected in May 1982, had 
decided its priority was to 
provide employment and coun- 
cil housing, and had declared 
the original agreement void on 
the grounds that some of its 
conditions had not been ful- 
filled — notably the relocation 
of a road sweepers' depot 

Mr Wanamaker. aged 67, 
said he was “delighted and 
jubilant^* 

Mr Wanamaker was con- 
nected with the short-lived 
New Shakespeare Theatre in 
Liverpool, which was widely 
admired but dosed in 1959 
with estimated liabilities of 
more than £100,000. 

He leaves for America next 
weekend on a fund-raising trip 
for the Globe. He estimates 
the cost of the scheme at 
£12 million at current prices. 
Firm pledges of support so far 
total £1.7 million. 

Construction of the circular 
open-air theatre will begin as 
soon as possible, and it is 
hoped it can open in 1991. 

Scholars at international 
conferences have agreed on the 
design, incorporating three 
tiers of galleries (originally 
roofed with thatch) and the 
Duke of Edinburgh has set 
aside an oak at Windsor Great 
Park for a foundation post. 

A resident company will 
perform the works of Shake- 
speare and his contemporaries 
during daylight hours for 
about four months a year, also 
using an integrated recon- 
struction of Inigo Jones's 
smaller Cockpit theatre. For 



Sam Wanamaker clutching the celebration champagne and the lease to the South Bank site yesterday. (Photograph: Dod Miller) 


the remainder, the company 
will go on tour and the 
complex will be offered to' 
schools, colleges and commu- 
nity projects. 

The original theatre is 
thought to have held up to 
3.000 people, butsafety regula- 
tions will limit the replica's 
capacity to 1.500. 

Mr Wanamaker would like 
to provide employment for the 
youth of the borough through 
the Manpower Services Com- 
mission to help complete the 
project. 

The original Globe, built in 
1599 at a cost of £600. burned 
down 14 years later when the 
thatched roof caught fire from 
the wadding of a gun dis- 
charged during a performance 
of Henry VIII. Quickly rebuilt 
with a tiled roof, it lasted a 
farther 30 years before Oliver 
Cromwell had it torn down. 


Letter from Johannesburg 


Healey, the walking press conference 


Bruce Anderson, accompany- 
ing Denis Healey on his 
Southern African tour, reports 
on the shadow Foreign 
Secretary's meeting yesterday 
with firs Winnie Mandela 


Delmas is a sleepy little dorp 
deep in the Veldt Apart from 
a horse and cart delivering 
coal, the main activity seemed 
to be birdsong— and a treason 
trial. In a magistrates* court 
which looks as if it had been 
designed to deal with severe 
cases of illegal parking, 22 
leading members of the UDF 
and Azapo, the black con- 
sciousness movement have 


been facing charges, some of 
which could carry the death 
penalty. 

On the 101st day of their 
trial. Denis Healey came to 
express his solidarity. 

Two cardboard boxes of 
food and drink had been 
brought along for the defen- 
dants' (and Mr Healey's) 
lunch. Mr Healey and The 
Times correspondent carried 
the boxes into the courtroom 
without being searched. In- 
deed, Mr Healey concluded 
from the absence of security 
that the Government was not 
really serious about winning 
convictions, but merely want- 
ed to keep prominent black 


leaders out of circulation — 
but the defence counsel do not 
wholly support his optimism. 

Mr Healey then rushed back 
to J ohannesburg to see Wi nnie 
Mandela. His hosts, the South 
African Council of Churches, 
are charming, sincere and 
rather unworldly people — far 
too unworldly to be able to 
organise meetings. 

Anyway, after being pur- 
sued through the Johannes- 
burg traffic by a posse of 
television journalists. Mr 
Healey and Mrs Mandela at 
last met at the flat of her 
lawyer Ismail Ayob. Mr 
Healey gave Winnie a letter 
from Neil Kinnock and a copy 


of one ofEdna Healey's books. 
Wives of Fame , about Mes- 
dames Darwin, Livingstone 
and Marx. Mrs Mandela 
seemed more intellectual than 
Mrs Livingstone and .less ha- 
rassed than Mrs Marx. 

Mr Healey has been pleas- 
antly surprised by the extent 
to which he has been able to 
express his views. He now 
feels under no inhibition and 
has even considered a planned 
press conference in Lusaka, on 
the grounds that by then he 
will have said everything al- 
ready. In fed. he is a walking 
press conference — except 
when he breaks off to do some 
photographing himself.

of the South African 
Government." 

But she emphasized the 
need for “effective measures.” 
She said:"Measures which 
simply brook greater trouble 

would simply do no good - 
not for the Commonwealth, 
not for this country and 
certainly not for black people 
in South Africa." 

But Mrs Chalker faced the 
unconcealed hostility of the 
Tory right over her meeting 
with Mr Tam bo. 

The most outspoken was 
Mr Jerry Wiggin, MP for 
Weston-super-Mare, who said 
that the Government was^now 
“treating with terrorists.” an 
accusation that the Mrs 
Chalker denied. 

She was jeered by Back 
Benchers when she described 
Mr Tam bo as "a man who 
certainly impressed yesterday 
with his total deslike of 
violence.” 

Mrs Chalker added:”We are 
in no way treating with terror- 
ists. We are trying to solve a 
problem which the whole 
House believes has continued 
for too long.” 

She received equal support 
from the Back Benchers, and 
backing from the opposition 
parties for holding the talks 
with Mr Tambo. 

Mr Mark Carlisle told her 
that many Conservative MPs 
believed she was right to talk 
to the ANC as an important 
voice to be beard at this time. 
He called for measures to 
safeguard the Commonwealth 
and force change in South

Mrs Chalker announced to 
MPs that a diplomatic protest 
had been made to the South 
African Government. She said 
the Government deplored the 
actions of a regime that insti- 
tuted a state of emergency 
with 180-day detentions. 

From the opposition From 
Bench. Mr George Robertson 
congratulated Mrs Chalker for 
“changing Mrs Thatcher’s line 
on meeting Oliver Tambo" 
and called on her to ignore 
“isolated and 

unrepresentative" Tory oppo- 
sition to sanctions.

limitation on what the newspa- 
pers can report.” 

(The emergency regulations 
permit no filming or sound 
recording of "unrest", nor any 
first-hand reporting of same 
by print journalists, nor any 
“news or comment" on the 
conduct of the security forces 
without prior approval.) 

Mr Nel did not specify what 
action would be taken again s t 
foreign newspapers deemed 
not to have complied with the 
regulations. He named no 
names, but said it was dear 
that some newspapers had 
tried to observe the regulations 
while others bad not- It was np 
to journalists, he said, to 
interpret the regulations for 
themselves and comply with 
them. 

Since the emergency was 
imposed, one CBS News cam- 
eraman, Mr Wim De Vos, a 
Dutch national, has been ex- 
pelled. Two other foreign jour- 
nalists. an American, Mr 
Richard Manning, the bureau 
chief of <Vi vstnek, and Mr 
pan Sagir, an Israeli free- 
lance, have been ordered to 
leave. 

Mr Manning will have to 
leare by midnight today onless 
an appeal he has lodged 
a gains t his expulsion is suc- 
cessful. Mr Sagir was original- 
ly told to leave by the same 
time, but has been given two 
days* grace because there is no 
El Al flight to Israel until 
Saturday. 

The general-secretary of the 
Congress of South African 
Trade Unions (Cosatu), Mr 
Jay Naidoo, came out of 
hiding yesterday to tell foreign 
journalists that 70 of. its key 
officials were in detention, and 
scores of others in hiding. He 
said that Cosatu planned to 
hold an open meeting of its 
central executive committee on 
July 1. 

In Parliament — which now 
goes into recess anti! the 
second half of August remov- 
ing the one forum where 
controversial matters could be 
aired without restriction — 
Mrs Suzman said it was 
disgraceful that Mr Louis Le 
Grange, the Minister of Law 
and Order, was not prepared 
to reveal the names of detain- 
ees.

com panics backed by:tbe Con-

have expressed outright oppo-

condemnation .of apartheid, 
the British Industry Commit- 
tee on South Africa- (BICSA) - 
.said: “Any measure aimed at 
damaging ornndermining the : 
South African economy would

Britain's biggest and -most 
influential companies in the 
mann&cturmg. • mining and 
financial sectors, such as .Bab- 
cock Internationa^ BP, Con- 
solidated Goldfields, Hanson 


By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


Trust, Hill. Samuel, ICX, Rio 
Tinto-Zint and. Unilever. 

1 ;The statement, issued in the 
name of the BICS A chairman, 
.Sir Leslie Smfih, who is on the 
board of Britisb Oxygen, said 
members, felly supported the 


public demands made by the 
in South 


business community 
Africa, including: British sub- 
sidiaries and associated com- 
panies, for the South African 
Government' 'to abolishap^rt- 
heicL . :■ • ;. 


Political change .and. eco- 
nomic growth ran together in 
South Africa, the : statement 


^The best bopeofa solution 
ties in economic .growth over 
many years. -The. substantial 
inflow of capital required for 
this ' purpose will only be 
forthcoming if there is solid 
evidence' that fundamental 
political reform and the aboli- 


: tion of apartheid are under 
way." 

Sir Lcsh'e said the commii- 
■ toe was cqually opposed to 
disinvestment as a means of 
bringing pressure to bear on 
South - Africa 

Forexgn-owned companies 
' were at the forefront of bring- 
ing improvements to the 
working and living conditions 
of the black and. coloured 
peoples - and • disinvestment 
would remove that influence. 

He said disinvestment 
would also seriously reduce 
-the effectiveness of the cam- 
paign, now being waged by the 
South African business com- 


munity for fundamental polit- 
ical reform; 


and would stop the 
flow of long-term develop- 
ment capital which all fixture 
South African governments 
would require if living stan- 
dards were to be raised among 
the deprived of (he country. 


Sir Leslie added: "Whatever 
further measures are contem- 
plated or might be taken 
against the South African 
government, it is BICSA's first 
belief that both economic 
sanctions and disinvestment 
would damage the South Afri- 
can economy and, as a result, 
would retard rather than ac- 
celerate the process of 
change." 

Most of the participants are 
also members of the CBL 
whose president, Mr David 
Nickson, chairman of Scottish 
& Newcastle Breweries, said 
yesterday: "British industry 
was doing most to raise stan- 
dards in South Africa and 
keep the economy, as for- as 
black people are concerned, at 
acceptable levels. Up to now, 
South African business inter- 
nally bad been doing as much 
as it possibly could to influ- 
ence-the government.”

The mini-battle between 
Brown Shipley Holding* and 
Henry Ansbacher, both in the 
junior league of British mer- 
chant banks, was settied yes- 
terday to ihe satisfaction of 
both sides' when Henry 
Ansbacher: and one of its 
bigger shareholders sold their 
2(LS per cent stake in Brown 
Shipley fin- £23 mflfion. 

; . The sale of the stake, boill. 
up by-Amfoacher and Grpupe 
Bruxelles Lambert in April 
this year, produces a profit of 
around £7 j 5 million. Brown 
Shipley yesterday welcomed 
the purtbasers, Kredietbank 

Luxcmbourgeoise, a hanking 

and insurance group, with the 
same 1 rigour with which it 
opposed the Ansbacher stake. 

Mr Robert Amos, Bn^yn 


... . By Lawrence Lever 
Sltipley’s deputy chairman, 
said" yesterday: “We see a 
syneigy between them and u$» 
in that they wanted a window 
in the Gty and we would like a 
greater presence in Europe”. 

Mr Amos confirmedhe had 
held talks with Ansbacher 
since it built up its share stake. 
"They were not reatiy discus- 
sions, and we did not cotter 
into, them in dhy positive 
-sense. -The stake was not 
welcome" be added. . 

The TCredietbank purchase, 
which at 7SQpa share, repre- 
sented a premium of 140p. on 
Brown Shipley’s opening price 
yesterday, was engineered 
through , the offices of Baring 
Brothers, which was appoint- 
ed to advise the Brown Ship- 


ley board after the move by 
Ansbacher. 

Brown Shipley's share price, 
which stood at 540p immedi- 
ately before the Ansbacher 


stake was announced, yester- 
day dropped 20p to dose at 
590p, and widen the premium 
to 160p. Last year. Brown 
Shipley announced it was 
buying Heseltrae Mom, the 
stockbroker, for £5 million. 

According to Mr Amos, 
Kredietbank has no intention 
of increasing its stake. 

Mr Richard Fenhalls, the 
Ansbacher chairman, yester- 
day described the initial 21 per 
; cent stake as “a good strategic 
investment". 

“We did not believe we 
would ever lose on the stake,

GEC takeover ‘danger’ 

By Derek Harris, Industrial Editor 


A takeover of Plessey, the 
electronics company, by. GEC 
could mean failure or. serious 
difficulties for 66' small or 
medtom-sized high technol- 
ogy suppliers with another 1 16 
alro left in difficulties, accord- 
ing to a report commissioned 
by Plessey. Up to 24,000 jobs 
eventually could be in 
jeopardy. . 

Tidek Management Consul- 
tants, in a report yesterday, 
said: “The findings of - this 
study raise serious questions 
about the wisdom of merging 
Plessey with GEC dearly 


there are costs for small and 
medium enterprises associat- 
ed with a GEC bid which they 
are expected to ’bear without 
any sure heme of compensa- 
tory benefits.’ 


The study, which Tidek rigs 


it .undertook only on 
understanding that it would be 
a 'completely independent 
one, is bound to prove contro- 
versial 

The study was revealed by 
the' Small Business Bureau

Peter MSDen help likely 
on solvency test 


New hope 
ofPCW 
settlement 


By Alison Eadie 

Lloyd’s “names* 1 , or inves- 
tors, on PCW syndicates are 
likely to receive help Id enable 
them to pass die solvency test, 
Mr Peter Miller, chairman of 
Lloyd’s, said at yesterday's 
annual meeting of members. 

He said this would leave 
open the possibility of a 
settlement to the PCW affair 
b efore the tad of the year. The 
solvency test assesses whether 
names have sufficient means 
to meet their liabilities and to 
continoe underwriting. 

MrMiller added that those 
who had “a moral or legal 
responsibility” in the manage- 
mefit of the PCW syndicates 
shoaUmakea contribution to 
the settlement as should PCW 
names themselves, regardless 
of how the losses had arisen. 

The growth in capacity at 
Lloyd’s looks set to slow down 
with some 2,000 new names 
expected to join from next 
January. A total of 3,087 new 
names jslsaei thisrear. 

Mr Miller said that the 
pattern of capacity growth of 
recent years looks tike being 
repeated with existing names 
accounting for two thirds of 
the total capacity increase. 

He said Lloyd's agents had 
waiting fists of names wanting 
to join, but the Jack of marine 
business, doe to recession in 
shipping and the oil and gas 
industries, meant there were 
insaflicient anderwritiag out- 
lets to attract them. 

Cbatset, a private company 
which analyses results of 
Lloyd’s syndicates, has esti- 
mated that Lloyd’s will make 
an overall profit of £105.8 
million in the 1983 underwrit- 
ing year, an improvement of 
about £115 million. 

It estimates the marine 
syndicates wQl make improved 
profits of £1663, or 1L4 per 
cent of the preminms 
written, whereas non-marine 
sector will make losses of 
£79.7 million, or 6.8 per cent of 
tile . premiums. 


US puts final touches to 
tax cuts revolution 


From Bailey Morels, Washington 


The final chapter of the 
ins Unite* 


most sweeping united States 
tax revision since World War 
Il will be written next month 
.when members .of- the House 
of Representatives and Senate 
meet to reconcile .: differences 
between the two historic bills, 
officials confirmed yesterday. 

After the overwhelming 
Senate pa*?»g e of a bill that 
will lower -the top individual 
tax, rate from 50 per omit to 27 
per cent, . members of the two 
hnfic« must now gel down to 


The foal version ofthe bin, 
hailed by President. Reagan as 
‘•‘the; second American 

revolution,” will be written- m 

this key conference. ^ • 

Bur strong similarities be- 
tween the' two bills indicate 
tbar.the confereiK»;wiU agree 
on these general joints: 

• The' top individual tax rate 

will be almost halved,:, to 
befow 30 per cent.: - 

• More inan six; million low. 
income people will be re- 
moved' from the tax rolls. . 

• The fop.captal gains rate 
wiH be raised from 20 per eerily 


and tax shelters favouring 
wealthy individuals and cor- 
porations will be strictly 
Limited. - 

• Taxes on businesses will be 
increased by more than SI00 
billion over five yeans to pay 
for the individual tax cats. 
This will include a tough new 
minimum . tax on profitable 
corporations. Some wealthy 
companies now pay no tax. 

%■ The investment tax Crete, a 
. favourite of corporate Ameri- 
ca, wiD be replied to counter- 
act a reduction in tite top 
corporate tax rate from 46 per 
cent to the mid-30 per cent 

*W- . • . . . 

Despite some divisive is- 
sues — including severe pres- 
sure from corporate lobbyists 
to- restore tax breaks for the 
insurance and property indus- 
tries, among others — an 
agreement is expected to be 
reached by the autumn- Ifsaa 
final bill would be sent lo the 
White House for President 
Reagan's signatore- 

For lobbyists, however, the 
Hous&Senaie conference is a 
Coidaflastcfiangeto.shapea 


bill that removes billions of 
dollars in tax benefits for their 
clients. 

The most hotly contested 
issues are expected to be the 
tax treatment of capital gains, 
oil and gas drilling incentives, 
tax-exempted bonds, deduc- 
tions for charitable contribu- 
tions and for individual 
retirement accounts, deprecia- 
tion write-off for businesses, 
foreign tax changes and the 
deductabitityof raxes. 

In addition, the Democrat- 
controHed House is likely to 
attempt to put its own stamp 
on the final bill to provide the 
middle class with a bigger tax 
cut 

Mr Dan Rostenkowski, 
chairman of the powerful 
House Ways and Means Com- 
mittee, said in an interview 
that more tax relief for the 
middle class would be a House 
priority. 

In addition, he named two 
other trouble spots in- the 
Senate bfll — the limits on 
deductions for individual re- 
tirement accounts and on state 
sales tax.

The Mercury rises at 
Cable and Wireless 


It is apt that Cable & Wireless should 
produce yesterday's fine set of results 
on the same day that the industry's 
watchdog. Professor Bryan Carsberg, 
makes it clear in his 1985 annual 
report that his eagle eye is on British 
Telecom's pricing structure. With the 
inauguration in May of Mercury 
Communication's switched service, 
competition for the nation's tel&- 
comm unication traffic is now up and 
running. Professor Cars berg is 
committed to giving Mercury more 
than a fair chance. 

The better than expected 20 per cent 
increase in •G&W’s 1985-6 pretax 
profits to £295 milli on does not even 
hint at what Mercury could contribute 
in, say, five years time. Last year it 
made losses of £13 million on 
turnover of £4 million. Investment in 
the network was £49 million bringing 
the total so for to £125 million. By the 
end of this financial year that will 
have increased to £200 million and 
breakeven will be in sight Indepen- 
dent forecasts for Mercury’s revenues 
suggest a build-up to almost £200 
million for the year to March 1988 
and £500 million the following year. 

The favourable terms which Oftel 
determined for the terms under which 
Mercury would interconnect with the 
BT network spurred C& W into 
speeding up its investment. 
Yesterday's warning from Professor 


disappointing but was dampened by 
currency e Sects and the planned 
slowdown in equipment sales and 
contract work. Underlying improve- 
ment on the public telecommunica- 
tions business was more than 10 per 
cent C. & W.'s profits attributate to 
ordinary shareholders rose from £142 
million to £180 million; earnings per 
share are up 22 per cent from 31 .7p to 
38.7p; and a final dividend of 6p per 
share, against 4.9p, brings the total 
dividend up to 9.5p, also an increase 
of 22 per cent. 

There is enough telecommunica- 
tions traffic for all players at the 
moment but C&W has a head start as 
a newcomer with modern equipment. 
In December the Government sell-off 
and rights issue was almost caught out 


by a falling share price. Yesterday 
3 bought in at 587p were 


those who 

rewarded with a~15p rise to 705p. 


Base rate hope 


Carsbeig that he will rework the RPI-3 
ricing formi 


pricing formula if British Telecom's 
return on capital employed is too high 
should similarly bring cheer to C&W 
(whose performance on that criteria is 
rather better). 

To compete with Mercury, British 
Telecom will have to offer better 
terms to its major business users. It 
will also continue to erode the 
subsidisation of local calls by long 
distance calls. But Professor Carsbeig 
warned yesterday that this rebalanc- 
ing can only be carried to a point that 
is justified on economic grounds. 
Similarly, any cut-price deals for high 
traffic users will also rest on British 
Telecom proving that price reductions 
go hand in hand with lower costs. 
Oftel will be watching carefully that 
Mercury does not fall victim to any 
cross-subsidisation within British 
Telecom. 

Mercury is just one link in CAW’S 
global strategy which is reaching 
around the world. Further investment 
is planned this year on fibre optics 
within the United States to link the 
planned submarine cables across the 
Atlantic and from the West Coast to 
Japan. Total capital expenditure is 
likely to rise from £255 millipn to 
riearer-£300 million but with partners 
like Nynex there should be no 
financing troubles. 

Last year’s results were achieved 
despite a £21 million adverse currency 
effect and a foil in profits from the 
Middle East following the handover of 
the network in the Yemen Arab 
Republic. Hong Kong remains the 
pivot in Far Eastern telecommunica- 
tions traffic and contributed 65 per 
cent of the company's profits. 

The improvement in turnover — at 
just 5 per cent — looks slightly 


Hope springs eternal for another 
move to cheaper money, even in 
London where the hangover from the 
May money supply figures, or from 
too many late night World Cup 
games, has produced a certain muzzi- 
ness in the markets. Yesterday, gilts 
perked up, on hopes that a base rate 
cut before the holidays may still be 
possible. The remainder of the £600 
million taplets announced on Friday 
were sold out. 

The change of causation, as so often 
in these things, is a long one. It starts 
with the first quarter figures for gross 
national product in Japan. Much to 
the chagrin of Mr Nakasone, hoping 
for such an overwhelming vote of 
confidence in the July 6 double 
elections that his party won't dare 
make him stand down, the GNP fell, 
by 0.5 per cent. 

Weak first quarter GNP has be- 
come a familiar pattern in the major 
economies but for Japan it becomes a 
particular blow, both because of the 
election and because it was the first 
quarterly decline in GNP for 1 1 years. 
And so, the pressure is on for a 
discount rate cut in Japan. 

The scene now moves on to New 
York, where money market rates 
edged down yesterday, and where 
some traders are talking of a cut by the 
Federal Reserve Board m the discount 
rate within days. Paul Volcker, the 
Fed chairman, is seen as committed to 
following rather than leading rate cuts 
elsewhere, despite a series of weak _ 
economic statistics over the past 
month. 

Against this, the dollar has started 
to look rather sickly again — yesterday 
the pound rose 80 points to $1.52, and 
the dollar dropped to DM2.21 against 
the mark and below 166 against the 
yen. Friday’s US trade figures will 
clearly be important 

Assuming these two bits of the 
jigsaw fit into place, the prospects for 
lower base rates here are really rather 
The next set of money supply 


res, due on July 8, have to be good, 
f ei 


unless the Bank of england is prepared 
to take responsibility for a mass leap 
of stockbrokers' economists from the 
top of the Stock Exchange tower.

can have profound effects on 
a target company, both good 
and bad. In its efforts to 
escape the clutches of 
McKechnie Brothers, New- 
man Tonks Group was forced 
not only to clarify its strategy, 
but also to tell the world, not 
least the press. This is all to 
the good. ' 

A less fortunate conse- 
quence of the bid was that it 
cost Newman Tonks nearly 
£800,000 to ward McKechnie 
off. In the context of interim 
pretax profits of £3.4 million 
announced yesterday, it is a 
considerable amount which 
nettles Mr Timothy 
Franktond, the chairman. He 
feels strongly that his costs 
should be paid by the unsuc- 
cessful bidder. 

-Over the past five years, 
the Midlands engineering 
company has carried out a 
comprehensive strategic re- 
view of its business and is 
concentrating its reorganized 
manag ement resources on its 
core activities. One of its 
great strengths is in high 
added value branded prod- 
ucts, such as Briton automat- 
ic door dosers and fire door 
hardware, Erebus security 
lodes, Jeavons gas regulators 
and Maxmatic waste disposal 
uniis. 

These brands may be little 
known outside the trade, but 
are market leaders where it 
counts. They are supplied at 
the architectural design and 
building stages of commercial 
developments, and in' refur- 
bishing programmes. The 
United Kingdom market is 
not fast growing and the 
group is looking overseas to 
expand. 

' As part of its defence, the 
group forecast a 25 per cent 
increase in pretax profit for 
the fuD year to October to 
£8.1 S minion. The interim 
result is exactly in line with 
this forecast. 

It also derided to raise its 
dividend by a hefty- 31 per 
cent from 5Jp to 72p, 
implying a 60 per cent payout 
of earnings. This is a heavy 
commitment for a company 
which was not cash-positive 
at the interim stage, although 
it hopes to be a net cash 
generator by the year-end. . 

At the current price of 
147p, the price earnings mul- 
tiple is 122 and the yield 6.9 
per cent gross — not a lot to 
pay for a well-managed com- 
pany, even if it is in one of the 
less glamorous sectors. 


Sound Diffusion delays results 


American investors came to 
the aid of a tired London stock 
market yesterday and 
breathed some life back into 
blue chip stocks. 

Dealers reported heavy sup- 
port for British stocks over- 
night following a strong rally 
on Wall Street. The Ameri- 
cans. were bidding 4l0p for 
stocks like Beecnam, where 
turnover reached over 
700,000 shares, and continued 
to buy them when trading 
resumed in London yesterday. 
Beecham closed in London 5p 
dearer at 403p, after 40Sp. 

The Americans were also 
buyers of Rentas, 2p cheaper 
at 496p, where turnover 
topped 2 milli on shares; BAT 
Industries, unchanged at 
400p. (turnover 520,000 
shares), Jaguar, 2p higher at 
525p, after 52Sp. (£40,000 
shares); and British Telecom, 
2p cheaper at 228p, (I million 
shares). 

There was continued sup- 
port for Cadbury Schweppes, 
the confectionery and soft 
drinks group, endmg 2p higher 
at I82p, after another 22 
milli on share s changed handy . 
A total of 26.776 million 
Cadbury shares (5.1 per cent) 
have now been registered with 
Morgan Guaranty in the form 
of American Deposit ery Re- 
ceipts. Cadbury says these 
shares are owned by a total of 
around 500 different Ameri- 
can investors. 


The rest of the equity spent 
another quiet session with 
turnover at a low ebb. Most 
funds are still tied np in the 
new issues from Thames Tele- 
vision and Morgan GrenfelL 
But dealers reported that the 
market undertone remained 
firm and some were hoping 
that the introduction of “new 
time" buying today for the 

Clothing manufacturer Stir- 
ling Grosap, unchanged at 
IQOp, is still looking a lot 
cheaper than other Marks and 
Spencer suppliers. Figures in a 
couple of weeks should make 
pleasant reading, and will 
include three mouths of For- 
sters. Analysts' estimates of 
£2.1 million look conservative 
and for the current year the 
group could make £3.5 million. 

new account next week might 
encourage a few buyers. 

The FT 30-share index 
opened up 8.6, but failed to 
bold its best levels, closing 5.4 
higher at 1,344.8. The FT-SE 
100 dosed 4.5 up at I.629.S. 

The strong pound and con- 
tinued support for the US 
bond market provided gilts 
with further solid gains. Rises 
stretched to more than £16 at 
one stage with investors still 
hoping for an early cut in bank 
base rales.

MK Electric joins in 
Rotaflex bidding 

By Alison Eadie 


MK Electric, the electrical 
accessories manufacturer, yes- 
terday revealed it was in- 
volved in bid talks with 
Rotaflex, the electricals manu- 
facturer, which is resisting a 
£50.4 million bid from Emess 
Lighting. MK Electric also 
announced it had bought 52 
percent of Rotaflex’s shares in 
the market last week. 

MK said it may make an 
offer in convertible preference 
shares on terms around 460p 
per share, but would wish to 
secure the recommendation of 
the Rotaflex board. Rotaflex 
shares rose 5p to 448p. 

Em ess’s paper bid is worth 
429p a share, with Emess 


down 12p at 322p. The cash 
alternative is priced at 400p. 
Emess last week declared its 
bid final and did not allow 
itself the option of revising the 
bid if a competitive situation 
arose. 

MK also disclosed a 22 per 
cent downturn in taxable prof- 
its to £ 1 7. 7 million for the year 
ending March 29. The final 
dividend, however, was in- 
creased from 6.8p to 7.4p. 
giving a total of 10.8p, a rise of 
5.9 per cent j 

An extraordinary charge of i

revived bid talk. Mr Gerald 
Ronson's Heron Corp recently 
completed the sale of its 
holding, but the whispers of a 
possible bid for the group still 
abound. Analysts claim the 
shares are being re-rated and 
several of them paid a visit to 
the group's operations in Ger- 
many recently and obviously 
came away impressed. 

Glaxo lost 2tip at £10.35 
after Wood Mackenzie, the 
influential Scottish broker, an- 
nounced that it was taking a 
bearish stance towards the 
shares. Apparently, Wood 
Mackenzie is now worried 
about prospects for Gfaxo's 
new drug Ceftazidime in Ja- 
pan. the world's largest inject- 


after the group failed to obtain 
a premium price for the 
product said to be the most 
advanced drug of its type. 
News of the pricing arrange- 
ment has come as a disap- 
pointment to City analysts. 
Wood Mackenzie claims that 
with more bad news than good 
likely over the short term, 
sentiment will probably be 
affected. The broker urges 
clients with overweight posi- 
tions to take the opportunity 
to lighten their holdings. 

On the Unlisted Securities 
Market, shares of Acorn Com- 
puters were unchanged at 50p, 
despite news of the resignation 
from the board of Mr Chris 
Curry, joint founder and for-

John Crowther in £31m buyouts 

By Lawrence Lever 


The John Crowther Group, 
a textiles company, yesterday 
announced two buyouts total- 
ling about £31 million, which 
will increase its existing share 
capital tv more than 28 per 
cent 


The agreed offers, which are 
not interdependent are for 
Sunbeam Wolsey. the Irish 
textiles manufacturer and A & 
J Gelfer, the Glasgow-based 
socks, tie and headwear 
company. 


The deals are the latest in a 
string of acquisitions by 

Crowther, which has seen its 
stock market capitalization 

soar from £6 million to £140 
million. 


Sound Diffusion, the trou- 
bled leasing company, said 
yesterday that its results for 
the year to December 31 
would be delayed until mid- 
July. 

A new accounting standard 
has involved the company in a 
"prodigious amount of extra 
work.” The standard, SSAP 


By Clare Dobie 
21, which, relates to leases and 
hire purchase contracts, was 
issued in August 1984. 

A year ago, Mr Paul 
Stonner, the chairman, said he 
regarded the new standard asja 
help rather than an imposi- 
tion. "Our interpretation of 
SSAP 71 has not been frilly 
examined- nor finally ap- 


proved by our auditors,” he 
said last October. 

One City analyst said yes- 
terday; "Until the audited 
reports and accounts for 1985 
are published the shares will 
remain speculative.” Yester- 
day they rose 1.5p to 36p 
against a high of 158p in 
October 1984.

Aid for shipbuilding 
‘will be a priority’ 


US bank 
expands 


in London 

By Teresa Poete 


By Edward Townsend, Industrial Correspondent 


The Government is to make 
strenuous efforts to ensure 
that stale aid to the European 
shipbuilding industry is grant- 
ed on “equal and fair terms," 
Mr Peter Morrison, Minister 
of State for Industry, said 
yesterday. Subsidies are to 
come under stricter European 
Economic Community con- 
trol 

The Minister responsible 
for Britain's troubled mer- 
chant shipbuilding industry* 
Mr Morrison told the Com- 
mons Trade and Industry 
Select Committee that be 
would be taking the opportu- 
nity of Britain's six-months 
presidency of the EEC to make 
state assistance to the ship- 
yards a priority. 

More stringent control over 
shipbuilding subsidies are ex- 
pected to result from the re- 
drafting this year of the fifth 
directive, which governs state 
akL Community industry 
ministers have already decid- 
ed that there should be a 
common ceiling of subsidies, 
but Mr Morrison said yester- 
day that it was too early to 
reach conclusions on how the 
limit should be calculated. 

The EEC discussions, which 
should be completed by the 
autumn, go to the heart of the 
argument within the commu- 



lilik. 


Peter Morrison: “We have 
been very generous” 

nity over direct and indirect 
subsidies. 

West Germany, which is 
against the type of direct 
assistance given to British 
Shipbuilders has. however, 
subsidized its industry with 
tax concessions, and France 
and Italy have also come in for 
criticism. 

Mr Morrison said that he 
believed that all European 
shipbuilders should compete 
on fair terms “and I am doing 
everything in my power to 
ensure that all aids for ship- 
building are taken into ac- 
count before we get a 
successor for the fifth 
directive." 

He made it clear that the 
Government ruled out a sub- 


stantial additional subsidy to 
help British Shipbuilders 
avoid the 3^00 job losses, 
announced recently. He 
agreed that the redundancies 
would cost £38 million, but he 
said that in the past seven 
yean the Government had 
been “very generous” in grant- 
ing £1,500 million of aid to 
British Shipbuilders. 

No Government, he said, 
had a blank cheque and, in 
any case, was constrained by 
EEC regulations. “If we go 
over the top the commission 
will be knocking at our 
doors." 

But he accepted that, be- 
cause of fierce world competi- 
tion and the poor market for 
merchant snips, state aid 
would have to continue. “If 
we had no subsidy at all then I 
don't think there would be a 
shipbuilding industry in 
Europe.” 

Mr Morrison said the Gov- 
ernment was taking an opti- 
mistic view on the future for 
British Shipbuilders. It was j 
confident that the corporation 1 
could stay within agreed fi- 
nancial limits and that there i 
would be no further shipyard 
closures. 

“But I do not want to 
underestimate the very severe 
difficulties of the market- 
place. " 


Manufacturers Hanover, 
the American bank, yesterday 
announced itsarrival as a late 
player in the British leveraged 
buyout market 

Mr Mark Solow, executive 
vice president, said: “We’re a 
little late in getting fiera We 
feel it is time to make our 
mark.” The bank has opened a 
European office for aquiriricm 
finance in London, specializ- 
ing in leveraged deals, acquisi- 
tions and mergers. 

Until now, the British oper- 
ations of Manufacturers Han- 
over have concentrated on 
traditional merchant banking 
activities, with only a limited 
involvement in mergers and 
acquisitions. 

In the United States, the 
bank claims to be the leader in 

j but its main rivals? Citibank 
and Bankers Trust, have been 
quicker to break into the 
British market Citibank has 
earmarked £100 million for i 
equity investment in British 
buyouts. 

Mr Solow said be expected ; 
the increase in buyout activity j 
to continue in the wake of the 
£1 billion-plus mergers. , 

Peat Marwick, the accoun- j 
tancy firm, recently forecast ' 
management buyouts worth i

Opec cuts a dash on Brioni 


The 13 off ministers of foe 
Organization of Petrotemm 
Exporting Countries, who axe 
representatives of the creators 
of several of the recent crises 
of capitalism and themselves 
conspicuous consumers, have 
settled themselves in a Com- 
mimist retreat in an effort to 
find a way of sending world oil 
prices back upwards. 


Opec thought that it amid 
avoid the hustle and bustle 
which normally surrounds 
their meetings in Geneva or 
Vienna by accepting an invita- 
tion from tiie Yugoslav Gov- 
ernment to hold their summer 
mooring QJJ the of 

Brioni, once a summer palace 
Coir President Tito and now a 

npriiMwl park. 


However, the attentions of 
the media, foe oO companies 
and oO traders, coupled with 
Yugoslavia's form of Gold 
Card Communism, has made 
the Brioni meeting as high 
profile as possible. 


The traditional features of 
an Opec meeting are in place. 
The bodyguards and advisers 
hover around each minister. 
Sheikh Ahmed Zaki Yamanfs 
bullet-proof Rolls-Royce has 
been replaced by a rakish 
white luxury yacht, the only 
<me to be allowed to moor 
directly outside foe conference 
hotel 

Sheikh Yamanfs disgust at 
Britain's refusal refnring to 
co-operate with Opec in cut- 
ting North Sea oQ oatpnt to 
help push prices hack upwards 
does not seem to have affected 
his taste for things British. 

The yacht, which brought 
him from Venice, where he 
met foe new Norwegian off 
minister, Mr Arne Omen, flies 
foe Red Ensign and foe blazer, 
flannels and yachting cap the 
Sfaefffo wore as he stepped oft 
brought a dash of Cowes to foe 
small island harbour. 


Another Opec tradition has 
remained intact, one which 


again ones something to die 
British educational system. 
Sheikh Mana Sneed Oiaiba, 
foe United Arab Emirates off 
minister pnrsumg his hobby of 
writing poetry, something be 
picked up while at Oxford, has 
penned his Opec code. 

He says: 

Behold I see Opec's petrol in 
the market. 

Like a stabbed knight, 
whose sword is still in hand, 
whose wounds stiU bleed, his 
kinsfolk do not offer him a 
tender breast for rest 

But on the contrary they 
even look on him with impo- 
tence as they start to dispute 
■who shall win this or that 
client. 

We meet today on this 
island, but worry, like a cloud, 
hangs over my head. 

I wish we came here as 
tourists for fim and to relax, 
rather than stirring dormant 
distress. 

Or blowing hat the buried 


embers (four dissent as hostile 
brothers we've become. WiU 
we be reconciled upon the hills 
ef Brioni? 

That would be the best start, 
if realised, to reach a firm and 
balanced settlement. 

Those of his coffeagnes who | 
have been presented with a j 
version In Arabic say that it is ■ 
just as good as the English | 
one. 

However, foe til ministers , 
might find it cheaper tn have 
arrived as tourists. The invok- ! 
ing of foe name Opec tn 
acquire a hotel room or order j 
in a restaurant seems to ! 
antomatkally doable the price- 

The remedy of moving else- 
where does not work either. 
The Yugoslav tourism authori- 
ties have organized every 
movement of those covering 
the meeting and those observ-. 
ing with considerable pre- 
cision. 


David Young 


THE BRITISH & COMMONWEALTH 
Sits. SHIPPING COMPANY PLC 


At the Annual General Meeting on June 25th the 
Chalmjan, Lord Cayzer, made the following 
remarks which are supplementary to his state- 
ment which accompanied the Accounts: 

As reported we have achieved a profit for the past 
year before tax of £76,848,000. I have once more 
expressed my view that the consolidation of the 
Group's share of the profits of associated companies 
flatters to deceive, as the sums of money we actually 
receive are very much smaller than the amounts con- 
solidated. 


of our new opportunities, such as Kaines, the com- 
modity dealing company, and The Scottish National 
Trust More recently, we have announced the forma- 
tion of a new company - Royale Resorts International 
Limited - jointly with the Sun Hotels International 
Group; we look forward to the success of this new 
enterprise which constitutes a significant expansion of 
our existing interest in the hotel and leisure sector. 


We must, however, expect a little time to elapse 
before the profits from our new investments begin to 
flow in proper fashion. 


As reported in my Statement we have sold our 
interests in Exco and OCL and this must be taken into 
account when considering this year’s profits. 


1 have reported that our shipping activity is almost at 
an end. I am very s ad that this should be the case, but 
the slump in world shipping is the worst that I can 
remember in my lifetime, and we simply could not 
afford to wait for the turn of the tide. Our association 
with shipping, once our main activity, goes back to my 
grandfather’s day: without Sir Charles Cayzer’s initia- 
tive B & C would not exist 


As usual I have great pleasure in expressing my 
warm thanks to all who work in the Group and by their 
efforts contribute so much to it Good management is 
crucial to our success, and in this regard I am very glad 
to welcome Mr. John Gunn and Mr. David Kinloch to 
the Board of British & Commonwealth. They will be an 
added strength to a good management team. 


As I have said, the result from air transport is disap- 
pointing. The fixed wing side Is a difficult one In which 
to make profits, but I am glad to say that so far, tilings 
this year are rather better. In regard to Bristow Helicop- 
ters we are passing through a time of recession owing 
to the fall in the price of oil, but as I have said Bristow 
is a strong, well managed Company and will weather 
the storm. 


I am also always conscious that private enterprise 
depends on a government which is in sympathy with 
that aim, and which believes that it is important for the 
community and country to have companies and 
people who are reedy to stand on their own feet and 
take advantage of opportunities as they become avail- 
able to them. We certainly agree with this, and the 
Government have clearly shown that they think along 
these lines. 


Airwork continues to prosper and to trade satisfac- 
torily. Our other interests, including hotels and office 
equipment are also performing welt. 


I have said this is a year of change, and it must be 
dear that this will have some effect in the short term. 
Nevertheless I am quite confident that your Company 
is soundly based and over the years will continue to 
make progress. 


Having sold the interests I have mentioned we have 
begun to re-deploy toe funds which have become 
available. In my Statement I have mentioned several 


Finally, the time has arrived to change the name of 
your Company. The Registrar of Companies has given 
provisional approval for Qte name - Britfoh & Common- 
wealth Holdings PLC -and the appropriate resolution 
will be put before shareholders in due course.

COMMERCIAL PROPERTY 


Dixons reaps reward of 
investment in Brussels 




'•Hr !rr4'. > : 'Wv

By Jndith Huntley 

All eyes are turned to Dix- 
ons Group as its bitterly 
contested £1.9 billion bid for 
Woolworth Holdings draws to 
a conclusion. But a shrewd 
purchase in the property sec- 
tor more than a year ago is 
now bearing Dixons useful 
dividends. 

It bought Codic, a Belgian 
property company in March. 
1985 for a mere £1 million 
from the now defunct Espley 
Trust, the property company 
formerly run by Mr Ron 
Schuck. 

Dixons Commercial Prop- 
erties. the property develop- 
ment and Hading arm of 
Dixons, bought 90 per cent of 
Codic. leaving 10 per cent 
with Mr Jacques LemaL the 
properly company's president 

It was recognized at the 
time that Codic was an ex- 
tremely well-managed compa- 
ny to the forefront of 
development in Belgium. But 
the market in the country at 
the time was still far from 
exciting. Brussels, in particu- 
lar. had been a no-go area for 
British developers and inves- 
tors for more than a decade. 
Many had had their fingers 
burned after the collapse of 
the property market in 1973-4. 

The story is now different 
Demand in Brussels' is high 
and new supply is almost non- 


existent The result is rising 
rents and a healthy invest- 
ment market. 

Codic is set to take full 
advantage of the situation, 
earning its parent Dixons, a 
healthy profit into the bargain. 
The company has sold two of 
its schemes — its first office 
developments in the centre of 
Brussels — to foreign investors 
within the past month. 

The 4.000 sq-meire build- 
ing, prelet to the European 
Economic Community at 
BFr5.200 (£74) a sq metre 
near the British Embassy, was 
bought by Azko- 
Pensioenfonds, a Dutch insti- 
tution for BFr300 million. 
And the 7.400 sq-metre block 
at Rue Monteyer was bought 
by VITA, a Swiss insurance 
company, for BFriOOmillion. 

Codic has been carefully 
nurturing a land bank in the 
city, ensuring that it can 
develop at a time when there 
is a scarcity of new office 
space. The Rue Monteyer 
project is expected to see rents 
of BFr5,600 a sq metre, a 
figure which has yet to be 
achieved in Brussels. 

Richard Ellis, the British 
estate agents which handles 
much of Codic’s work, says 
that new rent levels of 
BFr6500 a sq metre will soon 
be achieved in Brussels, such 
is the strength of demand for 


expansion from multi-nation- 
al companies. 

The lack of new space, 
resulting from the previous 
oversupply, is putting the 
squeeze on rents and again 
making development attrac- 
tive. 

Office rents in the prime 
area of Brussels, the Quartier 
Leopold, have risen by 25 per 
cent in the past 1 8 months and 
by 67 per cent since 1980. 
Vacancies in modern offices, 
which stood at 20 per cent in 
1 976, have fallen to 2 per cent 
today with new offices having 
no vacancies. Falling interest 
rates and improved market 
conditions in Belgium are 
attracting both indigenous 
and foreign funds to commer- 
cial properly. 

British developers would 
have a hard lime competing 
with the Belgians on their 
home territory. But there have 
been signs of interest from the 
likes of London & Edinburgh 
Trust and Ham merlon. 

Investors are finding that 
there is a shortage of proper- 
ties to buy. They are either 
having to develop themselves 
or forward purchase projects 
which are being developed 
with the risk that they will be 
let 

Richard Ellis says that the 
initial return to investors is 
likely to be 7 per cenL but 
there is pressure for yields to 


fall slightly as property prices 
have virtually doubled. 

An indication of the confi- 
dence in the Belgian economy, 
which is recovering from a 
tough time, and the property 
market, which has also seen its 
bad times, was the flotation of 
the Glaverbe! building on the 
Brussels Stock Exchange. The 
sale of BFrl billion of bearer 
bonds in the 35,000 sq-meire 
office block, formerly owned 
by the Belgian and Dutch 
pension funds of Unilever, on 
the outer ring road in Brussels, 
was Lhe biggest property bond 
undertaken in Belgium. The 
bonds con be traded on the 
secondary market of the Brus- 
sels stock exchange. 

The issue was immediately 
taken up. largely by private 
investors, and is' trading at a 
23 per cent premium to the 
January. 1986 issue price of 
BFrIO.bOO. 

The certificates are attrac- 
tive to high tax-paying indi- 
viduals. offering a 9.25 per 
cent yield less a 25 per cent 
withholding tax and compar- 
ing favourably with Govern- 
ment bonds, which are not 
index-linked as in Britain. 

The Glaverbel certificates 
are the model for Richard Ellis 
and County Bank's property- 
income certificates, the new 
investment vehicle proposed 
for commercial properly in 
'Britain. 



Japanese buy 
three prime 
City buildings 


- ’> ; • j;, , ' '•$

City Tower, the refurbishment of a 131,000 sq ft building in the 
Square Mile's Basinghall Street by Wales City of London 
Properties and Phoenix Assurance, is now folly let Tbe final 
rents on the building are £37 a sq ft and reflect a growth of 42 
per cent since City Toner came on the market 18 months ago. 

The letting agent was Baker Harris Saonders. 


Kumagai Gumi, Japan's 
largest construction company, 
has made a shrewd move in 
buying three adjoining City of 
London freeholds for an esti- 
mated £90 million. 

The buildings, at 41, 51 and 
55 Bishopsgate. are in a prime 
City location: in addition, 
they are occupied by tenants 
who are either moving or 
considering it, leaving the way 
clear for a 250.000 sq ft 
redevelopment soon. 

Either way the Japanese 
company, which aims to build 
a portfolio of first class invest- 
ments in the UK. will do well 
from the purchase. A rent 
review is due on 55 
Bishop&gate in 1 988 and in the 
interim lhe offices rented by 
Hambros Bank and Canadian 
Imperial provide a good 
income. 

Canadian Imperial is due to 
move soon to St Martins 
Property Corporation's Lon- 
don Bridge City development 
on the south side of the river. 
Hambros Bank is also be- 
lieved to be looking for a 
larger home as a result of the 
big bang. That, combined 
with the buildings' increasing 
obsolescence, prompts specu- 
lation that a redevelopment 
would be the long-term aim 
for Kumagai Gumi. 

The company prefers a low 
profile, doing its deals quietly. 
Hampton & Sons, advised by 


Chestertons, acted for the 
company on 5S Bishopsgate, 
purchased from the Church 
Commissioners; while Jones 
Lang Wootton advised on the 
purchase of 41 and 51 from 
the GEC Pension Fund. 

The agents will not com- 
ment on long-term plans for 
the buildings, nor will they' say 
whether or not Kumagai 
Gumi will try’ to buy existing 
leases. 

But the company can afford 
io take a relaxed attitude to 
the possibility of buying out 
its tenants' leases. Interest 
rates in Japan are half those in 
Britain and the yen's strength 
makes UK property relatively 
cheap for the Japanese. 

Kumagai Gumi is also in- 
volved in developing a large 
office scheme in Si Martins-Ie- 
Grand and convening the 
former Bourne and 
Hollingsworth department 
store in Oxford Streei into a 
speciality retail centre. 

Kumagai Gumi is looking 
for more investment and de- 
velopment opportunities in 
the City. But restrictions on 
investing in Japan and the 
sheer weight of money avail- 
able mean that its net is likely 
to spread wider, encompass- 
ing the rest of Europe. 

It already has substantial 
investments in Australia and 
is rapidly expanding in 
America.

Arlington Securities, the 
newly floated developer of

given permission by Mr 
Kenneth Baker, Secretary 
of State for tbe Environment, 
fora 148-acre business 
park in the Green Belt, next 
to Birmingham's National 
Exhibition Centre and dose to 
tbe M6-M42 junction. 

Tbe decision to give per- 
mission to Arlington comes 
after an examination of the 
West Midlands Structure 
Plan, prompted by the 
West Midlands County 
Coandl's promotion of a 
larger business park next to 
the NEC on land it owns. 

The Environment Secre- 
tary has given permission di- 
rect to Arlington rather 
than instructing the local au- 
thorities to do so. This au- 
thorization, for 2 A million sq 
ft of space, triggers an 
agreement by Arlington to buy 
the interests of its two 
partners — the Hayward and 
Hollward families — once 
all the conditions attached to 
the permission are 
fulfilled.

THE TIM^THURSPAY JUNE 26 1986 


Africa’s prospects improve 
but resource gap remains 


Jaw Report funei6 198& 


APPOINTMENTS. 


By David Smith, Economics Correspondent 


Prospects for reversing the 
decline into even greater am- 
ine and poverty in Africa are 
better now than for many 
years, according, to a special 
World Bank report released in 
London yesterday. However, 
the report says that present 
opportunities will be wasted 
unless Africa receives addi- 
tional aid and debt relief. 

Several factors have com- 
bined this year to produce an 
improved short-term outlook. 
These include the fell in world 
oil prices, which will save the 
low income African countries 
up to $i billion a year, the 
sharp rise in coffee prices, 
which will boost export earn- 
ings by around $750 million; 
and the good rains, which 
have boosted the output of 
some crops by 50 per cent. 

In addition, the environ- 
ment for increased official aid 
to the poorest countries has 
improved, partly because of 
live Aid and Sport Aid. 


The World Bank believes 
that Africa should press ahead 
with policy reforms, aimed at 
bringing about the structural 
adjustments needed for devel- 
opment. Bui, it adds, the 
donor countries must play 
their part by fining Africa’s 
resource gap, which is estimat- 
ed, even on relatively optimis- 
tic assumptions about aid 
already in place, at $2.5 billion 
a year. 

Africa is in a uniquely grim 
situation because of tow and 
declining per capita income, 
combined with food and debt 
problems. In addition it is the 
only region of the world where 
human resource development, 
through educational and other 
institutions, is actually going 
backwards. 

In the 1970s. Africa's prob- 
lem was thought to be its high 
population growth together 
with inefficient use of re- 
sources, which nowadays are 


also in short supply. That is 
why the resource gap must be 
met, the World Bank says. 

Of the $15 billion required 
each year, a little over $1 
billion is needed in bilateral 
aid from the big donor coun- 
tries, the rest coming from 
debt relief and multilateral aid 
programmes. 

The World Bank is optimis- 
tic about increased donations 
from Japan, but disappointed 
that other countries nave not, 
as yet done more. The extra 
$1 billion in bilateral aid is 
less than 2 per cent of the 
annual S60-S70 billion gain to 
the industrialized countries 
from tower oil prices. 

However, the World Bank 
is not in favour of increased 
bank lending to Africa. Such 
non-concessional assistance 
would, in current circum- 
stances, merely add to the debt 
burden. , 

The fell in oil prices and 


improved crops position give 
the African countries a chance 
to devalue their currencies 
without inflationary conse- 
quences, the report says, and 
this is its strongest immediate 
policy prescription. ' 

Atone among the develop- 
ing regions, the countries of 
sub-Saharan Africa have al- 
lowed their real exchange rates 
to appreciate through the 
1970s and 1980s. 

The African situation, while 
grim, is not all gloom, accord- 
ing to the World Bank. Seven 
countries— Botswana, Camer- 
oon, the Ivory Coast, Kenya, 
Malawi, Mauritius and Rwan- 
da - are cited as having 
.achieved substantial reforms 
and reasonable per capita 
income growth. 

The report. Financing Ad- 
justment with Growth in Sub- 
Saharan Africa, 1986-90, is 
available from World Bank 
offices. .

Standard Chartered has offered an uninterrupted 

service in China ever since we opened our first office 

in 1858. 

So that today, our six offices stand for two 
things. 

A depth of experience in China of the greatest 
value to businesses seeking to seize the burgeoning 
opportunities for trade. 

And a very special approach to the management 

of an international bank. 

In China as in many other major economies, 
Standard Chartered has become an important and 
well-established local bank, in which senior mana- 
gers have developed close relationships with local 
government, financial institutions and businesses. 

And at the same time, part of a fully-integrated 
network of more than 2,000 branches in over 60 
countries, sharing common procedures and infor- 
mation systems. 

It is a delicate balance, but, dearly, an achiev- 
able one. 

Contact your nearest branch for more infor- 
mation.

! • • • 


Cnckson v Bugg 
Before Lord Justice Woolf and 
Mr Justice Sinion Brown Y 
[Judgment given June 24] 

Although the phrase “whfte he 

is handling any open food* in 
regulation 8(e) of the ' Food 
Hygiene (Markets, Stalls and 
Delivery Vehicles) Regulations 
(SI 1966 No 791) did not bear 
xhe wide interpretation of refer- 
ring to the occupation of die 
handling of food as described in 
regulation 2(2), the word 
“handHng" in relation 8(e) 
was not confined to the- actual 
touching of open food but 
applied where a person was 
carrying out an operation re- 
ferred to in regulation 2(2). 

.Die Queen's Bench Di- 
visional Court so held when 
allowing the prosecutor’s appeal 
; fiom the dismissal on October 


17.1985 by St Edmondsbiny 
of an offence contrary 


| Justices v.. «m. w..-— 
to regulations 8, 25 and 26 of the 
Regulations. The court did not 
remit the case to the justices 
j because of the lapse of time. 

Mr Mark Sutton for the 
prosecutor: the defendant did 
not appear and was not repre- 
sented. 

MR JUSTICE SIMON 
BROWN said that the defen- 
dant, a market trader for 30 
years, had a vegetable stall. He 
kept the bulk of his produce, if 
not on the stall, in boxes in a 
lorry parked about ten .feet 
behind the stall. 

An environmental health oni- 
j cer saw the defendant serve a 
number oS custome rs an d saw 
him smoking a cigarette, not 
while he was actually in the 
| course of serving individual 


customers but in the short 
intervals between so doit®. 

Before actually serving a cus- 
tomer, the defendant would put 
down his lighted cigarette and 
then when he had. finis hed 
serving one and before serving 

the next be picked it up, drew on 
it, inhaled and exhaled and then, 
served the next customer. 

Regulation 8 under the title 
“Personal cleanliness" pro- 
vided: “A person who engages m 
the handling of food stall whue 
so engaged—. . . (e) refrain from 
the- itself tobacco -or any otbo- 
smoking mixture or snuff while 
he is handling any open food or 
is in any food room in which 
there is open food.” The han- 
dling of rood was defined tn 

regulation 2(2). .. 

The first question which artse 
concerned the precise ambit of 
the opening clause , namely who 
was envisaged by • “A person 
who engages in the handling of 
food shall while so engaged". 

The opemmg clause had to be 
given a wide construction. The 
phrase “while so engaged" nec- 
essarily required that anybody 
who was engaged in an occupa- 
tion felling within regulation 
2(2) attracted the. application of 
regulation 8. 

It was contended that the 
phrase in 8(e), namely “while he 
is handling any open food" 
carried an equally wide inter- 
pretation. That was an impos- 
sible contention. 

The whole of the final phrase 
in regulation 8(e) starting with 
“white he fs handling open 
food" necessarily operated as a 
qualification on the wideness of 
the opening clause of the regula- 
tion. 


However it did not follow that 
the word “handling" was con- 
fined to actual touching of open 
food. That was an equally 
impossible construction or 
“handling open food" gjyoa the 
definition in regulation 2(2). 

One could be handling any 
open food even when not ac- 
tually touching it provided only 
and always that one was carry- 
ing out the sort of operation to 

which regulation 2(2) referred. 

It was open to justices to 
arrive at the conclusion that a 
stall-hoidCT hai broken off his 
operation of his stall and that 
having done so, be was not 
handling any open food and 
therefore could quite safely 
smoke. . i 

There would not be a suf- 
ficient breaking off of an opera- 
tion if a stan-hdkler decided to 
conduct his operation ofhis stMl 
in such a way as to tak e qui ck 
puffs of a cigarette in be tween 
customers, leaving the lighted 
cigarette conveniently at hand. 

The justices did not ask die 
most critical question raised on 
the information, namely: "Hati 
this defendant, at the point 
when he between serving cm- 
tomers went to bis lorry to have 
a cigarette, broken off the opera- 
tion ofhis vegetable stall or was 
he continuing to operate the 
stall and doing what the regula- 
tion dearly barred him finodL; 
doing?” ; 

The justices did not property- ^ 
address themselves to the ques- 
tion on the proper interpreta- 
tion of regulation 8 which was 
thrown up on the ^ facts of tqe 
case. - . : * .

Presence of goods not necessary 
for trading in park 

Burgess v McCracken 


* * 


r?- 


Before Lord Justice Watkins 
and Mr Justice Orton 
[Judgment given June 25] - 
It was not a necessary ingredi- 
ent for an offence of carrying on 
a trade in a park without 
permission, contrary to regula- 
tion 4(5) of the Royal and Other 
Parks and Gardens Regulations 
(SI 1977 No 217), that the 
prosecution should prove that 
the trade alleged to have been 
carried on in the park was a 
trade concerning goods present 
at the time of the alleged 
offence. , „ t 

The question that should be 
I asked by the court dealing with a 
defendant charged with such an 
offence was whether, in the 
circumstances of the particular 
case, the defendant was carrying 
on a trade. . 

The Queen’s Bench Di- 
visional Court so held when It 
allowed the appeal of the pros- 
ecutor, Police Constable Bur- 
gess, against the decision of Mr 
Ronald D. Bartte, a Bow Street 
Metropolitan Stipendiary Mag- 
istrate, who on April 4, 1985, 
riicmicBed an information laid 
against Robert McCracken 
alleging an offence contrary to 
regulation 4(5) of^the 1977 
Regulations and section 2(i) at 
the Parks 'Regulation (Amend- 
ment) Act 1926, as amended by 
section 92(1) and Schedule 3 to 
the Criminal Justice Act 1967. 

Regulation 4 of the 1977 
Regulations provides: “Unless 
the Secretary of State’s written 
permission has first been ob- 
Sncd, no person using a paric 
Shall (5) carry on any trade or 
business m a Park*-"- 

Mr Roger Ter Hnr-for the 
prosecutor, Mr McCracken m 
person- - 

LORD JUSTICE WATKJNS 
said that foe magistrate had 

found as feet that foe defendant 

was seen by the prosecutor 
standing tra the pavement of the. 
■ Mafl taking the photographs of 


two pedestrians and money was 
passed to the defendant. 

The magistrate concluded 
that the facts of the case were 
indistinguishable from Newman

interfere with peoples 
recreation and he waswifoin foe 
case of Newman. 

His Lordship accepted MrTfr

authority i 
without bearing evidence from 
the defendant. 


that it was clear that the 1977 
Regulations dealt entirely with 
the Draper management of parks 






hip s 
tuiel 


accepted that the Mall was a part 
of St James's Park and was 
therefore within foe ambit of the 
1926 Act and the 1977 Regula- 
tions authorized by section 2(1). 

Mr Ter Haar contended that 
Newman dealt with trading in a 
street and not trading in a pariei 
and different considerations ap- 
plied to trading in a street as 
apposed to trading in a park as 
foe 1 977 Regulations showed. 

He said that foe main purpose 
of street trading regulations was 
to prevent obstruction on foe 
street whereas foe 1977 Regula- 
tions were aimed at the proper 
management of parks: their 
object was that persons using a 
park were not pestered or ir- 
ritated by persons acting as the 
defendant had done, ana regula- 
tion 3 listed certain acts which 
were prohibited altogether. 

The defendant contended that 
the 1977 Regulations did not 
apply to hftn because he was 
simply not trading. His trade 


the proper management * 
and not streets. 

It was clear from the dose of 
the prosecution case in the 
magistrates' court foal there was 
evidence at that stage on which 
foe magistrate could have in- 
ferred that the defendant wfcs 
carrying on a trade in the park 
from his sole transaction: 
whether foe magistrate would so 
infer was a mailer for his 
determination since whether- a 
trade was being carried on was a 
question of feo. I 

The appeal would be allowed 
and the case remitted to the 
magistrate to continue the bear- 
ing. 

MR JUSTICE OTTON. 
agreeing, said that the question 
in the present case was not 
concerned with street trading « 
in Newman but whether foe 
defendant was carrying on a 
trade in a park. 

There was no total pro- 
hibition on all photographers, 
and licences could be obtained

Support will be given by NTT (I) 
the international subsidiary of the 
Nippon Telephone and Telegraph 
Company .which is the dominant - 
operator of telecommunications in v: 
. Japan. 

By 1990 our new joint venture 
with Pacific Telecom of the United 
States and this new Japanese company 
expects to be operatinga trans-Padfic . 
fibre optic cable (PPAQ. 

This, with an extended fibre optic 
network across the United States and 
our trans-Atlantic fibre optic cable - 
(PTAT), will enablethe Group to handle 
telecom-munications trafficsecurely, 
rapidly and economically between ■ 
the major business and finance centres 
of the world. 

I welcome the interest of Nynex in 
becomingan equal and active partner 
with Cable and Wireless in the trans- 
Atlantic cable,- Nynex, one of the largest 
Bell Operating Companies, operates 
the domesricrelecommuriications 1 
services in the north-eastern area of 
the United States from NewYbik City 
to the border wkh Canada. - ■■ 

Such a partoer-ship will provide 
, the basisfor a digitallinkagebetween 
theUnited Statesand thedigital net- 


work of Mercury in the United King- 
dom,, the 100 per cent subsidiary of 
Cable and Wireless. 

The expansion of Mercury pro- 
ceeds most satisfactorily 15 May, 1986, 
was an historic occasion when lhad the 
privilege with the Secretary of State for 
Trade and Industry, The Rt Hon Paul 
Channon, MS of inaugurating a com- 
petitive public switched network 
making Britain the second country 
in the world after the United States to 
have an alternative public network. 

We hope that with the planned 
installation oflocal exchanges MercuTy 
will be able to provide competitive 
services to an increasing number of 
customers. It is with considerable sat is- 
faction that I can record that more than 
80 per cent of Mercury equipment is 
provided from the United Kingdom. 

The deregulation of the City of 
Londons financial markets, the ‘Big 
Bang,’ has stimulated an increased 



agreement with AT&T in April, 1986, ' 
to operate an international switched 
telephone service between the United 
Kingdom and the United States. New 
agreements with other administrations 
are being negotiated 

The Far East continues to be a 
major contributor to Group profits. 

In December; 1985, 1 was privi- 
leged to open the Eastern Section of 
the Guangdong microwave project for 
which Cable and Wireless provided 
technical assistance. 



On 14 March, 1986, 1 opened the 
Western Section, thus facilitating tele- 
communications traffic between the 
25 cities now linked in the Guangdong 
Province and with Hong Kong. 

The entire microwave system 
stretches over 1,000km. The project 
to allow direct dialling to Hong Kong 
from ten cities in the Pearl Delta area 
is substantially complete 

In December; 1985, Her Majesty’s 
demand for a wider range of more | Treasury successfully sold its remain- 

sophisticated communication ser- 
vices. Mercury is laying a fibre optic 
network within the City to meet this 
demand, and also ordering a System

GENERAL APPOINTMENTS 


H ow many business 
sectors have doubled 
the number of jobs 
they provide during 
the past few years? 
- Anyone tempted to respond with a 
nil return might be surprised at 
figures recently produced by the 
Management Consultants* Associ- 
ation (MCA). 

The MCA's membership com- 
prises the majority of the UK’s 
major management consultancies. 
It sets stringent membership qual- 
ifications — for example, the 
average length of service with the 
firm must be three years, and 90 per 
i - cent must hold appropriate profes- 
‘ ‘ sional qualifications. Its 27 mem- 
; ber firms employed more than 
twice as many stafi'in 1 985 as they 
did in 1981 and numbers now 
stand at an all-time record of 3,500, 
generating about £175 million in 
“fees in 1985. 

_ .. Analysis of the MCA's figures 
: suggests that consultancy's ability 
; to buck the general employment 
: trend is due primarily to the 
exponential rate of change in 
■- today's world and the consequent 
■ ' demand for specialized expertise. 

The use of consultants has grown 
: ; across the organizational spec- 
4 trum, and the sector now employs 
a diverse range of expertise. 

r — Clients of alt types use consul- 
units because they need technical 


experts who understand their 
business problems. Sometimes 
they are looking for an indepen- 
dent view on their plans or an 
objective assessment of a tricky 
problem; at other times they are 
looking for a spare hand at the 
pump or a special technical skilL 
Whichever it is, they expect 
someone on the ball who can 
understand their problems and 
work well with them. 

Information technology is the 
field which accounts for the largest 
single volume of MCA members* 
work. It has been a growth area for 
some time. The countless horror 
stories of organizations spending 
small fortunes on systems which 
took too long to develop, never 
worked properly and did not meet 
users' needs have had their effect. 
Using consultants for computer 
strategy and selection studies is 
widely seen as a thoroughly worth- 
while investment. 

As information technology be- 
comes more and more complex, 
with computers linked to one 
another, to telecommunications 
equipment, word-processors and 
so on. the need for technical 
advice becomes even more vital. 
The demand is just as seat in the 
factory as in the office, with 
computer-controlled manufactur- 
ing systems handling everything 
from product design right the way 



Tomorrow’s growth 
of management 
consultancy will 
depend on the supply 
of capable people, 
says Richard Owen 


through the various stages of the 
production process. 

Nowhere is this dependence on 
IT more apparent than in the 
finance sector. As the “Big Bang” 
gels ever closer banks, stockbro- 
kers and the like are racing 
desperately to install the real-time 
systems which, in the new, highly 
competitive global markets, will 
determine not just their success 
but their very survival. It is no 
surprise that the MCA's diem 
analysis shows insurance, banking 
and finance as far and away the 
biggest users of management 
consultants. 

Second on the list comes the 
public sector. The Government's 
efficiency drive has generated a 
requirement for consultants to 
help introduce modern manage- 


ment concepts and commerdal 
practices into government depart- 
ments and organizations such as 
the National Health Service. An- 
other significant source of work is 
privatization, with companies, the 
gas industry, airports, dockyards 
and water authorities- 

In the private sector, the MCA's 
figures show thai use of consul- 
tants is spread evenly across 
companies of all sizes. Small 
businesses, unable to justify em- 
ploying full-time experts in spe- 
cialized fields, have an obvious 
need for consultants: it is now 
easier to do so as there is 
government assistance for some 
projects. 

Larger companies also have 
good reasons for employing them. 
With staff costs rising and a trend 


away from large headquarters 
staff, many businesses are keeping 
down head counts by using out- 
side specialists to cover peak 
demands. The consultants can 
also bring knowledge of new 
developments with which any 
company will find it hard to keep 
pace. 

Change afreets not only equip- 
ment and systems but also the 
whole area of business strategy. 
The status quo is gone, probably 
for ever. Fluidity and uncertainty 
arc the hallmarks of the modem 
world. Survival depends on being 
continually aware of the directions 
in which the world is changing and 
on developing strategies to meet 
the requirements of today and 
tomorrow. This is yet another 
field in which the management 
consultant's breadth and objectiv- 
ity is at a premium. 

Such a bullish view of the 
market begs the obvious question: 
Can it last? Consultancy has 
always been a cyclical business. Is 
the current boom not bound to be 
followed by another crash, like 
that of the early 1970s? 

There may be vulnerability in 
certain areas. The supply of 
privatization work is dearly limit- 
ed. and a change of government 
could reduce the pressure on 

public sector efficiency. Post-Big 
Bang, the amount of finance sector 


work may also diminish. Overseas 
business is unpredictable, avail- 
ability fluctuating markedly owing 
to factors such as oil prices, the 
economic situation in developing 
countries and general world trade 
conditions. 

Overall, however, demand 
should be sustained, even in- 
creased. The pace of change, both 
specifically in areas such as infor- 
mation technology, and generally 
in terms of the whole business 
environment, will accelerate rath- 
er than slacken off. The demand 
for technical and strategic advice 
looks set to grow with it. The 
experience in the United Slates, 
where the market is more mature, 
suggests that growth of consultan- 
cy in the UK still has some way to 
go. 

C onsultancy's past vul- 
nerability to cyclical 
downturns was due 
largely to its dependence 
on such sectors as engi- 
neering where its original growth 
was based. With the emphasis now 
on supplying a wide range of 
businesses with expertise in areas 
subject to seemingly boundless 
growth, the limiting factor is less 
demand than supply. 

Consultancies have developed 
an insatiable appetite for the best 
people. They need to combine 
outstanding technical expertise. 


with broad practical experience. 
Consultants have to be lateral 
thinkers, able to solve any kind of 
problem. They must possess high- 
ly developed communication 
skills together with the necessary 
personal qualities to attain rapport 
with diems at all levels from the 
factory floor and general office 
right up to the boardroom. 

For the few who meet these 
exacting requirements, the re- 
wards are correspondingly high. 
No longer is consultancy seen 
primarily as a career stepping 
stone. Larger firms mean more 
promotion opportunities. In- 
creased demand for consultancy 
services has resulted in higher 
salaries. Perhaps no less important 
is that consultancy is fun; the 
variety of (he work with highly 
qualified and experienced col- 
leagues is stimulating and 
fulfilling. 

The future growth of manage- 
ment consultancy therefore de- 
pends above all else on the supply 
of highly capable people. The 
demand for their services appears 
lo know no bounds. For the 1 980s 
and beyond the motto seems to be: 
More work for the more able.

ner of Touche Ross, the manage- 
ment consultants, and vice- 
chairman of the Management

Electronics/Electrical Engineers 

Worldwide broadcast coverage, from Edinburgh, of tins 
year' s Commonwealth Games is a complex engineering operation 
involving terrestrial and satellite transmission networks. 

It's no easy 1 task to beam pictures and sound across the 
world, as any international football fan will now tell you. 

But, thanks to a wealth of engineering talent and some of 
the most sophisticated television technology around, it’s well 
within the capabilities of the BBC's engineers. 


A world of change 

In London and at Regional Television Centres throughout 
the UK, teams of skilled engineers are involved in the develop- 
ment installation, maintenance and operation of advanced 
equipment to produce and broadcast two television channels to - 
a national and often international audience of millions. 

And with day lime television on the horizon, we're 
concerned not only with technical innovation, but also with very 
high levels of reliability. Because, however professional and 
trouble-free our programmes appear, behind the scenes a high 
degree of engineering expertise is being applied lo produce the 
smooth output we all expecL 

Achieving high standards under pressure is the challenge 
which confronts and stimulates our engineers. 

To join them, you'll need a degree, or equivalent in 
Electrical or Electronic Engineering, normal hearing and colour 
vision, plus the interest and motivation to work in Broadcasting 
and the unusual hours this often entails. 

Attractive starting salaries, currently under review, based 
on experience, are enhanced by allowances for shift or irregular 
hours of work. 

So if you'd like to work in television where the technology 
is as advanced as any communications or computer company.

substantial London presence, seek to recruit a mature, knowl- 
edgeable banking operations officer who will succeed their 
present Head of Operations/ Admin, upon his retirement.

respond to pressure and dead-lines in a positive, practical fashion. 

in order to attract such an outstanding individual, they propose to 
offer a competitive salary, augmented by arguably the most com- 
prehensive benefits package in the City, including a company car, 
mortgage assistance, an annual bonus, non-contrib. pension 
scheme. Free lunches etc.

A guide to career 
development 



G&Ai 




Figure it out the right way 


One of the more surprizing statistics in 
the graduate job market is that chartered 
accountancy firms are now recruiting for 
training no" less than 10 per cent of all 
graduates going into employment for the 
first time. 

Equally interesting is the fact that 30 
per cent of them are women and that a 
growing proportion of the intake is from 
what the profession's largest body - The 
Institute of Chartered Accountants in 
England and Wales — calls “non- 
relevant" disciplines This covers a 
whole spectrum of subjects that are not 
business related though most of those 
who are attracted into accountancy from 
other fields have numerate leanings. 

Liesel Payne, is now in the final stages 
of her three years of training — for what 
used to be called articles — with a small 
London West End practice. She has a 
non-relevanx degree in psychology and 
had a brief spell as a primary school 
teacher before deciding that that career 
was not for her. She admits to having 
been good at maths at school, but says 
that accounting maths is venr basic: “It’s 
mostly *0’ level stuff, though you do get 
into things like calculus in the theoretical 
papers in the Pan 2 exams. In your 
everyday work, though, you’re mostly 
using ordinary arithmetic.” 

In fact numeracy, in the number- 
crunching sense is no long as important 
in accountancy as it used to be. “A lot of 
the routine work these days is done with 

Emphasis is on analytical 
skills now, not numeracy 

computers," says Madeleine Ross, Stu- 
dent Counsellor at the Institute. "The 
emphasis now is on more analytical 
skills, interpreting the information that 
comes from the figures, communicating 
its implications to management and 
looking at all the ramifications of taxT 

For this reason some of the bigger 
firms are now heavily engaged in 
activities which only a short time ago 
were little more than an added client 
service. Coopers & Lybrand, for in- 
stance. now have a management consul- 
tancy staff of 600, a threefold increase 
since 1981 Price Waterhouse are one of 
several large firms with a sizeable 
division specializing in the recruitment 
and selection of financial staff. Other 
practices have begun to muscle in on 
some of the activities that used to be the 
preserve of merchant banks, such as 
raising funds and arranging for stock 
market quotations. No doubt the "bjg 
bang" will see a further expansion in 
such directions. 

Accountants, in fact are shedding the 
traditional image which associates them 
largely with preparing balance sheets and 
tax returns. As 1 986 is Industry Year, the 
Institute has launched a campaign to 
make the public — and the graduates they 
want to attract into the profession — 
aware of the wide ranging nature of their 
contribution to the economy. 

“Accountants are concerned with 
devising the financial structures that will

numbers of recruits. 
Godfrey Golzen looks 
at the appeal of this 
fast growing profession. 

enable companies to meet the objectives 
of their business plan - for instance in 
the matter of funding." says spokesman 
Andrew Colquhoun. "‘Smaller firms that 
can't afford a full time financial control- 
ler of their own are increasingly turning 
to their external accountants to help 
them plan their whole financial strategy 
as well as to set up control systems that 
will enable management to monitor 
progress on a day to day basis." 

The three year training period covera 
law. economics, general business meth- 
ods and data processing (from 1987), as 
well as taxation and management ac- 
counting techniques. It is, in fact 
beginning to emerge as a serious rival to 
an MBA as a post-graduate qualification 
leading to a business career - especially 
as it has the added attraction that 
students are paid while taking it. 

Rates are somewhat lower in the 
provinces, but in London you can expect 
to earn somewhere around £7,300 in the 
first year, rising to £10,000 by your final 
year, by which time you will already be 
helping to supervise new trainees on 
audits and similar jobs. The Chartered 
Accountants Students Society of London 
keeps an eye on training rates, but the 
market itself exercises a strong upward 
pressure on them — as it does on salaries 
of qualified accountants, which start at 
about £1 5,000 and then rise quite rapidly 
to over £20.000. 

It is. however, a very tough training. 

A tough training programme 
faces the new graduate 

The emphasis is very much towards on- 
the-job training, which means that the 
theoretical part, forming the content of 
the two main exams, has to be studied 
largely at home. Liesel Payne found she 
was spending 1 5-20 hours a week on that, 
in addition to the time off she was given 
u> prepare for exams under her training 
contract. “It's not easy to get stuck into a 
textbook when you’ve been at work all 
day." 

She was put on to preparing of 
accounts for small firms within a month 
of starting her training and since then she 


It was the variety of work tbai 
attracted her 10 training in a small 
practice with only five partners. “You 
have to make the choice between that 
and a larger firm. I chose this option, 
because I thought I’d get more personal 
help here as well. It’s worked out well for 
me. though I may move to a bigger 
practice eventually, in order to get 
exposure to the kind of problems you get 
with larger clients” 

Kendal Withers has made the opposite 
choice. She is in the final stages of her 
contract with one of the grams of the 
profession. Price Waterhouse. “I was 
attracted to the training facilities here. 

which are almost like a mini-university,’* 
she says. 

Her training contract involves one 
exam less than that of Ms Payne because 
she has a relevant degree, a BCom in 
accounting. 

However she does not fed this is an 
overwhelming advantage. "It’s useful as 
a background, especially in the Pan 2 
exam. But a university degree is iaxgely 
concerned with theoretical issues. You 
will have to acquire the practical 
knowledge.” She has no regrets about 
having done that particular course, but 
she would not advise anyone to take a 
relevant degree purely as a preparation 
for accountancy. "It’s not worth it when 
you only save taking one exam. You’d be 
for better doing something you really 
want to do." 

Failure rate for admission 
into the practice is high 

Certainly the failure rate in the 
accountancy exams is extremely high. 
The Institute quotes the average first 
time pass rate as averaging only SO per 
cent, and that does not include students 
who simply drop out This figure is an 
improvement on recent years, but it is 
still daunting when one considers that 
almost 90 per cent of all trainees are now 
post-graduate. 

The high 80 per cent pass rates Ms 
Withers quotes for Price Waterhouse 
indicates that success in getting students 
through the professional exams ought to 
be an important criterion in choosing a 
firm to train with, though practices, for 
their part, are also getting more selective 
about who they take on by looking 
carefully at their academic records. 

However all is not lost even for those 
who do not stay the course, for whatever 
reason. Some move on instead to take 
the less demanding qualifications offered 
by the Association of Accounting Tech- 
nicians: a body set up in 1 980 to validate 
the tier below full professional levels. 

Most of those who drop out of 
accountancy training, though, simply go

THE 


RACING: COLE’S PROMISING NEWCOMER CAN COLLECT THE CHAMPAGNE AT SALISBURY 


Denys Smith to deliver a double 


Captain’s 

Niece 


Bv Mandarin 
(Michael Phillips) 


Denys Smith, the successful 
and versatile Bishop Auck- 
land trainer, has a good 
chance of landing a double al 
Newcastle today with Try To 
Stop Me (3.30) and Deputy 
Monarch (4.0). 

The nature of the round 
course at Cosfonb Park 


should suit Tty To Stop Me, 
i foi 


who is at his best when forcing 
the pace in front. Adopting 
those tactics at York last time 
out. Try* To Stop Me took up 
the ninning as soon as the 
straight was reached, and was 
only caught on the line by* 
Freedom's Choice. 

That I suggest was pretty 
good form because Freedom's 
Choice had run well against 
the much-improved Esquire 
in his previous race. Also. 
Promised Isle, who finished a 
close third, had been runner- 
up to the subsequent Royal 
Hunt Cup second, Siyah 
Ka/em, in the Whitsun Cup at 
Sandown. 

The main danger to Try To 
Stop Me looks like being 
Vague Melody, who was the 
second leg of Lester Piggott’s 
first double as a trainer when 
he scored at Warwick on 
Saturday evening. As a result. 
Vague Melody is now penal- 
ized. and perhaps just a shade 
too close to Try To Stop Me in 
this handicap. 

His stable companion. Dep- 
uty Monarch, who has fin- 
ished second in his last two 
races, looks poised for a 
change of luck in the Heddon 
Handicap. Plymouth Hoe and 
John Dorey, the two who have 
beaten him recently, are both 
a cut above average, and 
belter I feel than any of his 
rivals this afternoon. 

At Salisbury, the recent 
York winner. Dariev Knight, 
and Who Knows, who fin- 
ished third to Brave Dancer al 
Newbury, are the form horses 
for the Veuve Gicquoi Cham- 
pagne Stakes. However, I pass 
them over in favour of Paul 
Cole’s promising newcomer, 
Beeshi, who is one of the first 
crop of that fast horse. Red 
Sunset. 

Significantly, Cole is run- 
ning him instead of the un-

the 


Newmarket provided 
three fancied horses for 
Baldcrsby Apprentice Maiden 
Stakes at Ripon yesterday, tar rt 
was the 25-1 outsider from 
Headquarters, Captain's Niece, 
who captured the prize 
provide Dale Gibson, aged 
with his third riding success. . 

Captain's Niece went to the 


to 


18, 


just 


front* from Black Bank. - 
i aside the last furlong ana a half 
to be challenged by Hello Benz, 
on -whom John Kennedy was 
having his last ride as an 
apprentice. Nicky Phillips's filly 
held her rival by a length and a 
halC with Black Bank a sim i lar 
distance away third. 

Real Moonshine, who was 
backed from 8-1 to 100-30, 
finished fourth, ahead of the 2-1 
favourite Royal Nugget, while 
the other fancied Newmarket 
runner. Is Bello, was out of the 
first half a dozen. - 

Dale Gibson is appr e nt iced 


William Hastings-Bass, who 
main's Nil 


to 


in the Noel Cannon Trophy 


beaten Floose, who would 
have had a favourite's chance 
following those decisive wins 
at Leicester and Newbury. 
Also, Cole has a line on Dailey 
Knight through Secoot, anoth- 
er of his two-year-olds, who 
finished third to him at York. 

The EBF Southampton 
Maiden Stakes, which is the 
other race for two-year-olds 
on the programme, looks at 


the mercy of Santella Grey 
provided he is as good as his 
run behind Carol's Treasure at 
Goodwood suggests. In the 
meantime, Carol's Treasure 
has won the Windsor Castle 
Stakes at Royal Ascot. 

Today’s nap selection, 
though, is Alquinn to win the 
Noel Cannon Memorial Tro- 
phy, for which the course and 
distance winner Star Of A 


Gunner is likely to find the 
going riding too fast. He is 
essentially a mudlark. 

Bought back by his trainer. 
John Benstead, for 24,000 
guineas when offered for sale 
by his previous owner at 
Newmarket last December, 
Alquinn took a bit of time to 
find his form this spring. 

But considering that be was 
giving Aventino, who has won 


Prince Sky eyes Stewards’ Cup 


Prince Sky bettered the six- 
furlong course record at Salis- 
bury yesterday by almost a 
second when landing a gamble 
from 7-1 to 4-1 by a runaway 
three lengths in the Alderholt 
Sprint Handicap. 


finish only tenth. Now we’ll go 
for another big race - die 
Stewards' Cup at Goodwood 
on July 29." 


Always going well for Rich- 
ard Quinn. Prince Sky took 
command over two furlongs 
out and rapidly came clear. 

His trainer, Paul Cole, said, 
“We fancied him strongly for 
the Wokingham Stakes at 
Royal Ascot last week, but be 
was badly drawn and could 


Jockey-in-form Pat Eddery 
had a warning for trainer 
Jeremy Tree after winning on 
his promising newcomer 
Timefighter. The colt, a son of 
Arc de Triomphe winner Star 
Appeal, justified odds of 5«2 
on in the Shrewton Maiden 
Stakes (Division One) hot was 
never striding ont on the firm 
i and Eddery advised the 
pton trainer not to 


runthe horse on such ground 

a gain 

rimefighter was the first 
sen of Slightly Dangerous, 
runner-up to Time Charter in 
the Oaks. The colt took the 
lead from My Noble Lord two 
furlongs ont and steadily came 
away to win by two lengths. 

Eddery completed a doable 
on another Jeremy Tree new- 
comer Orne, who beat Operat- 
ic Score by a neck in the 
second division of tbe 
Shrewton Maiden Stakes. 
This brings Eddery’s tally fa* 
the season to 68. 


twice again since, 12 lb more 
than the weigbt-for-age allow- 
ance, his most remit run at 
Newmarket augured particu- 
larly well, especially as 
Aventino got first run on him 
that day after he had been 
denied a dear run three 
furlongs from home where 
scrimmaging occurred. 

Solo Style, my selection for 
the Downtown Handicap, fi- 
nally came good at Leicester 
after he had previously failed 
to land a gamble at Epsom. 


trains Captain's Niece, and he 
comes from a racing family. 

“His grandfather “Spider" is my 
head lad" said Hastings-Bass, 
who added, "Captain's Niece, 
who is home bred, was too big to 
train last year and this was only 
her second outing". 

Bold Difference was slowly 
away in the Dish forth Selling 
Stakes, but. switched by Ian 
Johnson at hallway, the Melton 
Mowbray-trained filly joined 
issue with the favourite Bad 
Payer in tbe last quarter mile to 
beat her one and a half lengths 
with Miss Acacia only a head 
farther away. There was a 
stewards inquiry but the 
placings were confirmed. 


Geoff Lewis's three-year-old 
looks capable of defying a 
penalty and beating Master 
Thames at a difference of 1 8tt>. 


Finally, Great Dilemma 
(4.15) and Shining Skin (5.15) 
both ran well enough in the 
race won by Smooch at 
Goodwood earlier this month, 
to suggest that they would 
oblige when dropped in class. 

And that is precisely whal has 
happened with their declara- 
tion to contest the two divi- 
sions of the Tisbury Fillies 
Stakes. 


Bold Difference was a bargain 
buy for her Grantham owner 
Tom Morris, who obtained the 
bay at Doncaster Sales for 800 
she is the fourth horse 
Walter Wharton Iras saddled to 
win for him. 


Apprentice suspended 
The apprentice Allan Gorman, 
who is attached to Bill Watts's 
stable, was suspended for two 


days, July 4 and 5. by the Ripon 


stewards yesterday for careless 
riding in die Baldcrsby Apprr - 
tice Maiden Stakes. They mu 
that his mount, Samosa, had 
interfered with Royal Nugget 
about three furlongs out.

the pressure as 
Britons feel strain 


By David PWtfl 


Britain’s top tfate women 
discovered ycaerday ttat thoe 
are no easy maiches ai WimWe-

might say. Annabel' Croft, Jo 
Dune' and Anne Hobbs- ^

by opponents from way down 
the world order. 

Miss Croft became the British 

No. 1 at the beginning of 

year while still a teenager but the 
strain oTit afi is proving too, 
much for her. In going down *■

BrariL she suffered her third 

successive first round defeat and 

has -failed to win a match m 

seven of the 12 tournaments she 
has contested this year. 

Miss Dias, who has yet K» 
break into fire world's top 100, 
defeated Miss Croft in the 
Edgbaston Cup a fortnigh t ago. 
but in the early rallies yesterday 
she encountered some of the 
reasons why Miss Croft was on 
the fringe of breaking hno the 
wp 20 at the end of tet year. “I 
don’t T*i?nfc I could have been 
playing any better in the first set 
but I just seemed to crack at 2-1 
in tire second," tire 1 9-year-old 
Briton said.

Britan had just ?**”*,***

looked as if darkness 
to close in on Miss Dunes 

^Itotfoewntfune returned and ^ 
she began to fine greater 
rhythm- With 3 ^enommabKk- 

torod dmwi fire Iin broke 

back to 4-4. Bui it more

rors than any improvemem ra 
Miss Dune's pmre Jh«- the

Thai Miss Maratkova finds 
time to play tennis isinnsdf 
surprising- She is a competitive 
slak»n datr. has teamed to 

speak five languages and used to 
be the JNo. ^figure skaierm tar 
country. Miss Dune fcnere sag 
was op against someone who 


tad seen tatter dayv (Miss

champumships in 19 8.1K .ta t 
could nm make short work of ^ 
her while the smash was her 


only efficient weapon. 


Miss Doric, who was sup- 
posed to be wannmg-up for a 
second round meeting with the 
sixth seed, Kathy Rinaldi, al- 
most overheated against tire 
Czechoslovak, Regina 
MarsHcovn. The son beat down, 
viciously on court one as the 
two engaged in one hour and 49 
minutes of hit-and-miss tennis. 

When shadows brought mo- 
mentary relief to the heat mid- 


* wouldn't say I feta nzisfrid

Dune said, "f prefer to be out on 
tbe showcoorts because I Jove 
the crowd watriring me perform. 
But after the first set I . was 
struggling aft the way through to 
tire end." 

Miss Hobbs could hardly 
have expected Belinda Borneo 
to have kept her long on court 
six. Mite Borneo is 15 places 
beneath Miss Hobbs in the 
British rankings tat needed 
three sets to earn a second round 
match against Zina Garrison, a 
semi-fina&st last year, winning 
6-0. 2-6. 6-4. .

Demanding itinerary 


By Michael Stevenson 


Early next month Lancashire 
— 'hoots will depart for Austra- 
lia, playing their first match 
against Western Australia Un-. 
der-I9 at Perth on Sunday. July 
13. During an ambitious and 
demand! ng , . programme, in 
which the party will travel 
virtually the length and breadth 
0 f the continent, Lancashire will 
fulfil eight -further, fixtures, 
returning to England in the 
second week of August. 

John Dewham, the tour man- 
ager and Lancashire Schools 
secretary, is generally optimistic 
about the tonr, as is the coach, 
Shawn - Higgins, hot money is 
still a - real worry. . Dewhnm. 

while very grateful for generous 

support from various toms over . 

lot and equipment, is more than 
a little daunted fry the fact that, 
apart from a belated contribu- 
tion from the Lancashire RFU 
of£l ,500, all the fund-raising for 
the torn-, which needed £31,584 


“We are^reaD^ desperate," 


Dewhnrst said. “We honestly do 


not know where the money is 
time when 


aiming, from.” At a time 

England rugby is at a depress- 
■ngly low ebb, it would be sad if 
the enterprise and initiative of 
those many schoolmasters, 
Dewhurst and Hjggjos among 
them is not adequately sup- 
ported. Help from any source 
would be greatly appreciated. 


The party includes two sons 
of famous sugby-playjng fathers. 
Jason Ashcroft, whose father, 
Alan, represented the Lions and 
England, and Gary French, son

CRICKET: MINOR COUNTIES ARE MADE TO STRUGGLE AGAINST FIRST-CLASS OPPOSITION IN THE FIRST ROUND OF THE NATWEST TROPHY 


» 

Si 


Suffolk flatter to deceive 
and Sussex triumph 
with something to spare 


By John Woodcock, Cricket Correspondent 


W 






HOVE: Sussex beat Suffolk by 
seven wickets. 

Suffolk must have hoped to 
win the toss and field first in 
this NatWest Trophy first- 
round tie. It would have given 
them a chance to get their 
bearings.. Instead, Sussex put 
them in and howled them out 
for 108, and hy tea Suffolk had 
been beaten- 

Sussex - took nothing for 
'. They were at home to 
three times when the 
same competition was the 
Gillette Cup and once came 
close to losing to them. They 
are also in need of aD the 
victories they can get at the 
moment, being uncomfort- 
ably short of players and 
momentum. 

. Of last year's side, Grevg, 
■Mendis and Waller have-gone. 

- .Of those left, le Roux, Pigott 
and L enham are injured (they 
were joined yesterday by Col- 
in Wells); Alan WeQs has been 
put into the second XI to try 
and find some form, and 
Barclay has stood down, 
though he took a good slip 
catch yesterday when be came 


on as Wells's substitute. This 
is sad for Barclay In his benefit 
year v as well as for Sussex. He 
has made them a good and 
thoroughly agreeable captain. 

Suffolk began as though to 
make more than they did. 
They were 33 for one after 10 
overs, with the pitch playing 
well and McEvoy (formerly of 
Essex and Worcestershire) 
and Clements (an Oxford 
captain) not overawed. But 
Standing, coming on with off 
breaks, bowled McEvoy with 
his first ball, and when 
Clements was fourth out at 49 
— he pulled Standing to deep 
square leg — it was a matter of 
Suffolk scraping together what 
they could. 

Caley looked as though he 

Stroke* 3 bac^^^^anding’s 
bead, and Brooks, who has 
been the rounds (the Lord's 
groundstaf£ Derbyshire and 
Lincolnshire), took care of 
himself with a good deal of 
competence from the 23rd 
over until he ran out of 
partners in the 48th. Having 



Gatting power sees 
i Middlesex home 


By Richard Streeton 


—“!r 




NORTHAMPTON: Middlesex 
beat NorthamptoasUee by Severn 
wickets. 

Forceful stroke play hy 
Gatting and Radley, who added 
. 133 .in 22 overs, nude certain 
that Middlesex won this 
NatWest Trophy first round 
match yesterday. Gatting made 
his first century in the com- 
petition as Middlesex reached 
their target of 260 with one over 
to spare. Gaffing's strokes m- 
- eluded four enormous sixes. 
Radley, with a basding 67, full 
of improvised strokes, gave 

jl frlWHw a pftnra « *nli frtmr lly 

before the end. 

. Northamptonshire passed 
200, with 10 overs still to come, 
and only two wickets down, so 
then- final total was considerably 
less than it shoald have been. 
Daniel dug. deep into his re- 
serves of stamina and 
determination and had four 
wickets in 19 halls when he 
returned for his last fear overs. 

Emburey, who took two wick- 
ets in the final over, always 
bowled with tight control. Until 
the late collapse, ho wev e r, the 
batsmen's composure was sel- 
dom milled on. a docile pitch. 
There was even an dement of 
good fortune about the first two 
wickets Middlesex darned. 

Larkins had shared an 
impressive first-wicket stand 
when he drove fiercely against 
Hughes and Emburey somehow 
managed to ding left-handed to 


a remarkable catch at extra 
cover. Gook was rim out when be 
sacrificed his wicket in Lamb's 
favour. 

lamb's response was . an 
attractive 80, foil of crisp 
strokes all round the wicket. He 
'and Bailey added 69 In 15 overs 
and were threatening mayhem 
when Bailey was DanfeTs first 
victim. Bailey edged a Effing ball 
and Downton took a good, 
tmnbfing catch to his right, 
lamb soon followed him out 
when he drove a full toss into the 
coven. Harper and WQd woe 
dismissed in Daniel's next over. 

Middlesex began slowly 
against accurate seam bowling, 
particularly Grom CapeL He 
completed his 12 overs un- 
changed and had Slack caught 
behind when the batsmen 
swished outside dm off stump. 

Gatling's timing, initially, was 
awry bat he then on-drove 
Harper and Nick Cook for sixes 
over long-on. Just before tea. 
Miller was trapped by Harper. 
At Ac interval Middlesex 
needed 150 from-25 overs. 

Afterwards Gaffi ng be g an to 

altboag^at*53 he*snrrived a 
stumping chance against 
Harper. Radley, at 44, was 
missed by Walker from a hard 
eetnra chance. The necessary 
acceleration, though, had come 
with 97 coariiK in IS 


Warwickshire make 
it all so predictable 

By Ivo Tennant 


EDGBASTON: Warwickshire 
beat Durham by 135 runs 

Warwickshire were taking no 
chances yesterday with Dur- 
ham. the only minor county to 
beat two first-class counties in 
the Gillette Cup. as it was. and 
the NatWest Trophy. They 
chose to bai first, ran op a near 
impregnable 317 for eight and 
bowled their opponents out for 
182. Only Patel who scored 59 
off 64 tells, held them up for 
long. 

It wasa pity Warwickshire did 
not put Durham in. if only 
because it might have stretched 
them. As it was. the outcome 
wa s predictable by. at the totest, 
the fifteenth over of Durham’s 
innings. This was ideal only for 
the diehard Warwickshire 
supporters. It highlighted one of 
the drawbacks of limited-overs 
cricket. 

Warwickshire hold the record 
for -the highest score in this 
competition. 392 for five against 
another minor county. Oxford- 
shire, two years ago. 
Kallicharran scored 206 on that 
occasion. He still deals largely in 
big scores: yesterday he was 
stumped when one short of 100. 

With Smith he put on 1 37 for 
the second wicket and with 


Amiss he added 102 for the 
third. Take your pick as to 
which of the three played the 
best innings. Smith, who Iasi 
week was hit on the head twice 
in four days, discarded bis 
helmet and made 79 off 107 
balls with seven fours and two 
sixes, his best one-day score. 
Amis did not play a cross- 
batted shot until he was bonded. 
He scored 77 off 74 balls with 
five fours and three sixes. 

Durham bravely howled two 
leg-spinners on a pilch which 
ted rendered the helmet ob- 
solete. Unfortunately. Wasi 
Raja, the Pakistani, was bit for 
71 ofTlO overs and Kippax. who 
took three wickets in 10 bails, 
had difficulty finding a length.' 
His 12 overs went for 6L The 
ground- fielding, too. was not of 
the highest order. 

Kallicbairan. whose 99 came 
off IS) balls and included 12 
fours, scampered the short an- 
gles as eagerly as he picked off 
boundaries, all noth an economy 
of effort that won him the man 
of the match award. He and 
Smith were stamped by 
FotbergilL substituting for Mer- 
cer. who retired with back 
trouble. ■ 


A Christian lionized 


By Alan Gibson 


TAUNTON: Somerset beat Dor- 
set by eight wickets. _ 

I have long been fond of 
Dorset and Dorset cricket, for 
which 1 have seen many fine 
players perform. There wore 
Michael Watford, Ceen Me- 
-Carlby and — best menuny of all 
.—the Rev GLOJessop. whom I 

once saw. though he was 
approaching the venerable 
stag?, batting much as his father 

most have done in a match 
against Cornwall at Camborne. 

Another reverend gentle man. 
now playing for Dorset and from 
an oid Dorset fondly, drew me to 
Taunton yesterday. There be 
was. Andrew Wingfield Dtgby. 
Who qualified for the ministry 
after nmamerabte yew at Ox- 
ford. He woo foot Woes w a 

period of seven years. 

. Whether his absences were 
doe to periods of meditation or 
'rustication I have never been 
sore. He b now direct or of a n 
organization called “Christians 
in Sport" and took a cricket 
team under their same to butte 
test water. It was io aid w 

Indian spastics and cannot have 
done them anyh harm, since 
35,800 people attended tfcdr 
match at Coimbatore. 

His ra pnh on the tour was 
Vic Marks. Marks. Roebuck 
and Wingfield Dighy afi played 

'for Combined Universities when 

they, bad their femoaswia owe 
Yorkshire in, I think, 1977. So 


there was some friendly rivalry 
; on beneath die surface iff 


Wingfield Dfeby looked much 
the same, with these tong tegs 
consorting so -oddly with his 
short strides is the nm-op, like 
an evangelical curate approach- 
ing a session -with the Btebop of 
London. ' He most have been 
delighted to get Roebuck out and 
sorry he did not have the chance 
to get to grips with Maries, 
either with ban or bat. 

There was not much iff the 
cricket itself. Dorset were put in 
and bowled out for 132. Kennedy 
(formerly the Lancashire Ken- 
nedy) held the first part of the 
muhiff L and Stone pot some 
s t rengt h into the tafl. bat Garner 
■was too much -for the middle 
order. 

Roeback and Felton pot 
Somerset away to a comfortable 
start and there was Uttie excite- 
ment. -apart from Wingfield 
pig fay's moment, doubtless the 
product of much prayer, as they 
proceeded to victory hy eight 
wickets in the 34th over. Felton 
was made man of- the match, 
though X thought there was just 
as good a case for Kennedy or 
Garner. ; 

Dorset fielded weU. They ware 
outclassed balitot disgraced ami 
| expect they wHl have a good 
season. -It was a lovely, stony 
day and a pity that foe match 
conk) not Have lasted long®. 


run Hayes out, quite without 
compunction, he stayed on 
and played very soHdly. 

Bailey, an England wing 
three-quarter, found Imran 
too'mudi to tackle. It was a 
gorgeous day for watching, 
though not for seeing Imran go, 
round the wicket to bowl a 
bouncer at Green, a useful 
bonder bimsdf but no sort of a 
batsman. For bowling 12 ad- 
mirably accurate overs, to a 
full length. Reeve was made 
man of the match. 

Sussex, baiting by 220, lost 
Alfl chan to foe fifth ball of 
their in pj n g s- While foe ball 
was new, CSreen, a big fellow, 
moved it about enough to beat 
both Patter and foe Sussex 
Green more than once. Suf- 
folk, in fact, bowled and 
fielded well enough for Sussex 
to tnalre quite heavy weather 
of scoring the runs they need- 
ed. Imran bad taken 20 overs 
to make 28 when he was 
caught in front of foe 
sigh tscreen, and Parker was 35 
overs making 40. They were in 
no hurry of course— but it was 
still tq Suffolk's credit 

Underdogs 
proride a 
rescue act 

By Peter Ball 

STONE: Glamorgan beat 
Staffordshire by 6 1 runs. 

Glamorgan eventually de- 
feated Staffordshire, those un- 
certain representatives of the 
minor counties, with some com- 
fort. winning with 10 overs to 
spare, but they needed a new 
eighth-wicket 60-over com- 
petition record between On tong 
and Davies to- set a target 
beyond their opponents of this 
reach. 

Coming together when their 
county were in deep trouble at a 
134 for seven, the pair pm on 71 
in 1 3 overs, beating the previous 
record of 69 set by Rouse and 
David Brown for Warwickshire - 
nine years ago. Ontong hitting 
five fours in his SO before going 
on to take three wickets and 
earn the man of the match 
award. Davies also had not 
finished, claiming six victims to 
equal Bob Taylor's wicket-keep- 
ing record in the same 
competition. 

It was quite a turn around 
from the morning, when cynics 
.who bad made Glamorgan the 
underdogs on the pleasant but 
undulating Stone ground had a 
point as they struggled against 
the minor county’s seam and 
spin. 

Webster yielded only 10 runs 
in his first seven overs, claiming 
Hopkins's wicket into the bar- 
gain. Maguire and Blank were 
respectful. Benjamin rather 
more threatening as he proved 
when yoridng Holmes as 
Glamorgan stumbled to 43 in 22 
overs. 

. Neither that dismissal nor the 
pace bowler's subsequent re- 
moval of Younis distracted a 
nearby school party of 13-year- 
olds from their game of pon- 
toon. backs resolutely turned to 
the cricket, but it gave Glamor- 
gan -cause for introspection, 
which was accentuated by the 
introduction of the left-arm spin 
of the local hero. Russel Flower, 
into the attack. 

Flower once acquired mo- 
mentary fame by bowiing'Boy- 
. cott in only his second match in 
first-class cricket at the advance 
stage of 35. and now he bowled’ 
with considerable accuracy and 
all the guile of his 43 years. He 
began with successive maidens 
and then drew Maynard forward 
for Griffiths to claim his first of 
two smart stumpings to go into 
lunch with the impressive fig- 
ures of 6-3-7- 1 . 

Carledge's off-spin proved 
equally, effective, afterwards, 
ending Monis's determined 
resistance, and as the promotion 
of Thomas and Moseley failed 
to shake the spinners' accuracy. 
Glamorgan were feeing an 
embarrassing result. Ontong 
and Davies removed the 
embarrassment. 

• -Their total was too much for 
the weekend cricketers. Dean, 
hitting the expensive Thomas 
for two fours in his opening 
over, gave notice of intent and 
Banks spoiled Ontong's figures 
as he bh him for successive sixes 
in smashing 37 off 23 balls, but 
with Davies's plundering style 
of stumping and irresisiable 
catches, the real underdogs have 
been granted their morning, not 
a whole day.

Derby pair 
rewrite 
the record 
books 

By Peter Marson 

Derbyshire's crushing victory 
against Cornwall, whom they 
beat by 204 runs in the first 
round of the NatWest Trophy at 
the County Ground. Derby, 
yesterday, could be attributed to 
Alan Hill, who made 134. and 
Iain Anderson, who made I S3 
in a record-breaking partnership 
of 286 for the second wicket, as 
Derbyshire moved to 365 for 
three from their quota of 60 
overs. 

Hill's and Anderson's 
partnership established a new 
record for any wicket in the 
NatWest or its predecessor the 
Gillette Cup when they eased 
past 234. the total in an un- 
beaten fourth wicket partner- 
ship between David and Give 
Lloyd in Lancashire's match 
against Gloucestershire at Old 
Trafford in 1978. It also bet- 
tered. by one run. the previous 
best in all one-day competitions, 
that by Greenidge and Turner 
for Hampshire against Minor 
Counties at Amersham in 1973. 

Essex had been invited to bat 
at Jcsmond and were soon 
struggling to make runs against 
Northumberland. Chris Old. the 
former Yorkshire and England 
player, had been the reason why. 
As a result Essex had been slow 
to get started and they lost 
Gladwin to Scott and Pnchard 
to Graham in reaching 60 for 
two. It was here, though, that 
Gooch stepped up a gear, and he 
had been cruising along nicely, 
hitting a couple of sixes and four 
fours when he played over a ball 
from H alii day to become the 
fourth wicket to fell at 93. 

Northumberland probably 
enjoyed their lunch, though, for 
by that rime Border had been 
taken too. and that was 128 for 
four off 38 overs. Lilley. who 
had been 27. now set off to hit 
his way to a dashing hundred in 
which there were frve sixes and 
eight fours as Essex made 298 
for nine. Their attack had the 
measure of the minor county as 
the holders of the NatWest 
Trophy went on to win by 79 
runs despite a brave show from 
the Northumberland batsmen. 

At Exmouth. Nottingham- 
shire rounded up Devon to win 
tty 59 runs, but Devon had been 
another side to have enjoyed a 
successful morning. Having 
won the loss and chosen to field, 
Edwards will have rubbed his 
hands at having accounted for 
Broad. Robinson. Rice and 
Johnson for 83 runs. Randall 
and Hadlee then hinted at a 
partnership as Nottinghamshire 
came in to lunch at 1 17 for four. 
If Hadlee was soon gone after- 
wards. then Randall made a 
half-century and French 46 as 
Nottinghamshire reached 212 
for eight. 

Top teams 
sound 
a warning 

By Mike Berry 

The favourites dominated the 
seventh round of ICC Trophy 
qualifying games as the major 
teams drew on their pedigree in 
the Midlands yesterday. All the 
top sides had victories, with 
Zimbabwe showing their consid- 
erable strength with a 1 0-wicket 
win against East Africa in 
Group One and the United 
States, Bermuda and The 
Netherlands living up to their 
reputations in Group Two. 

Denmark had a vita] Group 
One victory over Kenya but it 
came amid high drama in a low- 
scoring contest at Kenilworth 
Wardens, their last wicket pair 
sharing a stand of 26 to secure a 
one-wicket win. Kenya had 
made only 121 but the Danes 
allowed the comfort of 80 for 
four to collapse us 96 for nine 
before the late efforts saw them 
through. 

Zimbabwe’s win over East 
Africa was contrastingly conclu- 
sive. East Africa slumped from 

121 for three to 140 all out as 
Eddo Brandes took three wick- 
ets in four balls on the way to 
five for 37 and David 
Houghton, their captain, then 
made an unbeaten 87. 

The best bowling in the 
competition to date. Ron 
Elferink's six for 14, and another 
fine innings of 32 not out by 
Steve Atkinson gave The 
Netherlands a nine-wicket win 
against FqL The Americans 
owed their convincing win 
against Gibraltar to an un- 
broken third-wicket partnership 
of 125 between Sew Shivnarain, 
the former West Indian Test 
player, and Teddy Foster. 
Shivnarain made 70 not out and 
Foster an unbeaten 41. 

Bermuda, needing to win all 
force of their remaining games, 
came up trumps to beat Canada 
at Boumville. They bowled 
tightly to remove C ana d a for 
1 19 and achieved the runs for 
foe loss of two wickets

THE TIMES THURSDAY JUNE 26 1986 


FOOTBALL 1 FRENCH ARE MADE TO THINK MORE OF THEIR DEFENCE THAN OF THEIR ATTACK IN SEMI-FINAL 


Blunder by Bats spurs Germans 


From David Miller 
Guadalajara 


France 
W Germany 


West Germany, unimpres- 
sive in their earlier matches, 
revived in last nighi’s World 
Cup semi-final to take the lead 
after nine minutes and frus- 
trate the greater individual 
skills of France. A free-kick 
was. lapped by Magath to 
Brehme who hit the.ball under 
the French goalkeeper, who 
was diving to the near post. In 
a^'hard tackling match .too 
often interupted by free-kicks, 
the strength of the Gentians 
kepi the French in check 
thoughout the first half 

If God had an Argentinian 
band on Sunday, he now had a 
German foot in the first of 
Wednesday's semi-finals, 
when West Germany were 
able to take the lead after 10 
minutes against France with a 
shot which screwed into the 
net under the body of Bats, the 
■French goalkeeper, as he made 
his first error of the 
tournament. 

It had been the kind of 
beginning we had expected 



and feared. On a cooler, 
almost European day of cloud 
and varying sunshine, the 
Germans immediately sat on 
the match, committed a few 
quick fouls to give the French 
a 'feeling of what they were in 
for and France were forced to 
fell back and think more about 
defence than attack. 

Briegel, that muscular left 
back, was soon into theatrical 
pretence of an injury to his 
thigh when he had in fact been 
caught on the foot: all the old 
sickening stuff we bad seen in 
the final of 1982. The goal 
came as Bossis brought down 
Rummenigge a yard outside 
the penalty area. 

The French wall lined up; 
Magath tapped the free kick to 
Brehme, who had switched 
bill tack positions following 
the suspension of Berthold. 
He struck it left footed round 
the right hand end of the wall. 


Bats seemed to see it late, 
flung himself forward, never 
got a grip on the balk and it 
screwed underneath him off 
his chest and rolled into the 
net 

Now the French had even 
more of a fight on their hands 
than they would have wished. 
In response came 10 minutes 
of French pressure as the ball 
began to flow from them, man 
to man. in the way for which 
the crowd longed, those who 
were not Germans. An inter- 
ception by Araoros sent 
Bellone away on the left his 
cross flew high to Platini on 
the right, a touch square to 
Giresse, and a low shot skid- 
ded past Schumacher's left 
post. France were getting their 
tails up. 

Tigana made ground 
through the middle, found 
Platini, and his firet time flick 
to Giresse was miscued by the 
little man from Bordeaux who 
had taken time to warm up in 
almost ail France's matches so 
far. 

From one of many free 
kicks against the Germans, 
Giresse scooped the ball al- 
most without pause over the 
gathering wall. Platini swung 
and shot in one movement on 
the volley and Schumacher 
plunged to his left to parry the 
ball one-handed. 

Yet the French flame was 
doused almost as soon as it 
had flickered. Germany's pre- 
cise marking in midfield, their 
close passing and the angled 
running up front of Allofs and 
Rummenigge was beginning 
to pull France's defence in all 
directions. Briegel and Eder 
were combining with Allofs 
down the left in quick little 
triangles to have Amoros and 
Fernandez spinning in 
anxiety. 

After 25 minutes Platini lost 
control in a dangerous posi- 
tion when put in on the left of 
the penalty area by Bellone, 
but increasingly the Germans’ 
fierceness in the tackle was 
blunting any French forward 
movement Several times 
Platini or Bellone would jump 
as the tackle came in, prefer- 
ring to keep their limbs intact 

A fine combination between 
Briegel and Eder led to Briegel 
having a shot blocked, 
Rummenigge having an open 
goal from 14 yards on the 
rebound and Bats saving with 
his feet in desperation. Min- 
utes later a similar succession 
of triangles on the right be-

Mexico City (AP) — Diego 
Maradona and Michel Ptatmt 
are not only Workl. Cop 
contenders for the rag of “best 
player in the world”. They are 
also finked by the “Italian

skills m the league -that has 

become recognized as one of the 

most competitive. 

. There is. more money in die 
Italian League than probaWy 
any other and that means its 
dubs can afford to lure the best 
players ' with lucrative .contracts 


and appealing lifestyles. 
Footballers in Italy are adored 
and; more important, well re- 
warded for their endeavours.

tween Allofs and Rolff gave 
Rolff a chance from 12 yards 
and again Bats saved with his 
feet. 

In a counter-attack on the 
left, Tigana made ground 
when it looked as if he would 
slip the ball left: on he went 
and a strong left-foot shot was 
parried by Schumacher. Yet 
France were continuously in 
danger against the fast-run- 
ning German assault, and 
when Allofs cut through on 
the left, Rummenigge was 
unmarked beyond the far post 
Allofs chipped the ball over 
the goalmouth, and with a free 


header Rummenigge failed to 
get any power behind the ball 
and Bats was able to let it run a 
yard wide of the post. 

France were counter-attack- 
ing but with none of the 
conviction they had had 
against Brazil. The physical 
challenge of the Gennans 
clearly discomfited them. I 
thought that Platini was clear- 
ly fouled from behind as he 
attempted to take a ball on the 
turn two yards inside the 
penalty area but the referee 
seemingly saw nothing wrong 
with Rolffs challenge.

League appeal to goodwill 


Football officials are praying 
at the Christmas spirit wifi 


.that the Christmas spirit wifi 
prevent a repeat of last 
February’s crowd trouble when 
Manchester United players were 
' attacked with aerosol spray as 
. they got off the team coach for 
their match with Liverpool at 
An field. Next season's 
corresponding fixture has been 
moved to Boxing Day 

The Christmas date is seen as 
the best time to stage a match 
between clubs whose supporters 
have a tradition of unpleasant 
rivalry and is confirmed in the 
fixtures for the 1 986-87 season. 

The -fixtures include bad news 
for the England team, whose 
next target is the European 
Championship. Full League 
programmes are scheduled for 
the Saturdays before qualifying 


matches. A League spokesman 
said: "We were not approached 
to leave any Saturdays dear 
before internationals,”

Legendary characters abound 
in fly fishing. One of the greatest 
among salmon fishermen is 
Arthur Wood, of Cairatoo, in- 
ventor and propagandist of 
greased line fishing on the Dee. 
He became famous for fishing a 
floating line and a small fly 
which was allowed an inert drift 
downstream. Arguments are still 
going on about what was meant 
by inert drift- 

Bot to Arthur Wood’s ghfllie 
no man was a legend, not even 
Arthur Wood. The story has just 
been told for the first time by 
Brace Sandisoa, who toured the 
whole of Scotland from the 
Tweed to Caithness doing re- 
search for a book on die Scottish 
gbiflies. 

One of the famous ghflfies was 
Jimmy Ross, of Rothes, who was 
brought up on the Aberdeen- 


FISHINC 


shire Dee. He knew Arthur 
Wood at the time when all the 
talk was of fishing with a 
greased line and the great havoc 
which this was wreaking among 
salmon by the use of a small 
Blue Charm. 

Bat Jimmy Ross told Brace 
Sandisoa: **I knew Arthur 
Wood's ghfllie and used to meet 
him. in die pub at nights and 
asked him about all these fish 
that were being killed on a wee 
Bine Charm. ’Don't yon believe 
it,* was the reply. ‘It's a great trig 
Jock Scott that's doing all the 


work; and everybody for mfles 
around fashing away with these 
little Bine Charms they've bees 
rending about in the newspaper 
articles'.” 

So such for legends. 'IPs toe 
of the stories in The Sporting 
Gentlemen's Gentleman (Allen 
and Unwin, £11-95), a remark- 
able book, fen of tales from the 
ghillies of Tweed and Tay and 
Spey, taken down with a tape 
recorder and 01 nm mated by

telling some splendid fishing- 
bat stories, such as Jimmy 
Wallace's blow-by-blow account 
of how be hooked a partridge on 
tbe back cast- The bird flew low 
over the river, a salmon took tfae 
dropper and he landed both bird 
and fish. Many of the tales like 
this are so good yoa fed yon can

"It was disappointing for me 
that the FIFA professionals

the consequence will be that 
FIFA will have to exercise even

“Of course, I disagree with thar

is toppled 



by Edwards 


Bv Rex Bellamy, Tennis Correspondent 


Seedings are supposed to 


keep the leading players apart 


until the fourth round of 
Wimbledon singles. The way 
things are going, there will not 
be many seeds left by that time 
— not "in the men’s event, 
anyway. .Anders Jarryd. who 
reacheil the semi-finals last 
year, joined the list of distin- 
guished losers when Eddie 
Edwards brat him 3-6, 6-4, 7- 
6, 6-2 yesterday. 

Jimmy Connors, Andres 
Gomez. Kevin Curren and 
Guillermo Vilas could not 
even reach the second round. 
Nor could two of the women's 
seeds. Pam Shriver and Wen- 


suits like yesterdays should 
happen to him more often. 

Australians are always look- 
ing for another Rod Laver 
(come to think of it, we ail 
are). Two Australian left- 
handers with the right colour- 
ing. both aged 20. were in 
action yesterday. Mark 
Woodforde could not take a 
set from Brad Gilbert but 


More Wimbledon 
news and 
results on page 44 


dy TumbulL Jarryd at least 
Unfortum 


won a match. Unfortunately, 
that match happened on Tues- 
day and lasted five sets which 
left him a little weary, when he 
went back on court yesterday. 
He looked thinner, more 
gaunt than the Jarryd of two 


days ago. 


Jarryd also took last week 
off, resting an injured knee. 
What with one thing and 
another, much of the spring 
had gone from his stride. 
Yesterday’s tie-break finished 
him. After that the squarely 
built Edwards, 86 places lower 
in the world rankings, merely 
had to keep his nerve and his 
form and believe in his 
chances. 

Edwards, aged 29, is a South 
African who has spent a lot of 
time in the United States. He 
is so strongly built that if he 
ran into the Voortrekker Mon- 
ument it would probably wob- 
ble. But Edwards is also such a 
sunny-natured chap that re- 


Mark Kratzmann beat Nduka 
Odizor, 4-6. 6-3, 7-6, 4-6, 8-6 
in a two-day match that 
spanned three' hours and 18 
minutes. In the fifth set 
Odizor had two break points 
for a 5-4 lead. 

It may have escaped your 
notice, as it had escaped mine, 
that the only men to beat 
Gilbert at Wimbledon have 
been John McEnroe. Vitas 
Gerulaitis and Yannick Noah, 
who are — or were at the tune 
- pretty good players. Gilbert, 
aged 24, comes from Pied 
Mom (the Pied Mont in 
California as distinct from the 
renowned Italian battle 
ground). He was a late devel- 
oper but has developed fast in 
the past 12 months. Beating 
McEnroe in the Masters Tour- 
nament last January did his 
confidence no harm at all. The 
well muscled Gilbert then set 
about a few more top tenners. 
Nowadays, nobody is particu- 
larly eager to share bis compa- 
ny on a reasonably fast court 


Mikael Perafors, a Swede 
who has suddenly emerged 
from University tennis in the 
United States, startled every- 
one — not least himself — by 
reaching the recent French 
final. Yesterday he played his 
first match on grass and beat 
Mike De Palmer at the cost of 
one set. 

Perafors had been appre- 
hensive about playing on grass 
but it turned out to be less 
tricky than be had bran led to 
believe. He was pleased with 
the way his service skidded off 
the Earth’s crust, but con- 
fessed: “I don’t know about 
the volley. I haven’t got to that 
yet. If I can get by on the 
baseline I will stay 
there. "Some of the ladies be- 
gan to look rather fragile. 
Etsuko Inoue, a neat little

ien flirting with the 


British banking on 
‘liability’ Lloyd 


PanI Hutchins, the British 
team manager, has 23 days hi 
which to persuade John Lloyd 
that he is unwise to retire from 
singles competition. Hutchins 
knows that if Britain are to 
have any chance of beating 
Australia in the quarter-finals 
of the Dans Cop at Wimble- 
don next month Lloyd most be 
in the team, as usual, in both 
singles and doubles. 

Yet after Tuesday’s an- 
nouncement by Lloyd that he 
had "played his last singles 
match” after his five-set defeat 
by Christo Steyn, of South 
Africa, in the first round at 
Wimbledon, Hutchins may 
have a difficult task ahead of 
him. 

Lloyd has always been a 
little emotional after both 
victory and defeat And though 
be tried to smile, losing to 
Steyn was a bitter disappoint- 
ment. M f don’t want to play 
Davis Cop singles next 
month,” he said, “because at 
the moment I feel 1 would be 
more of a liability to the team 
than a plus. I don’t want to let 


the boys down. Agamst Steyn 
I was horrendous. He had 
nothing to beat” 

Those words may well be 
true but Uoyd is the only 
British player seemingly capa- 
ble of giving Pat Cash, Paul 
McNamee, Peter McNamara 
and John Fitzgerald, the ex- 
pected Australian team, a ran 
for their money. 

Jeremy Bates, Britain’s sec- 
ond singles player, ins been 
equally disappointing at Wim- 
bledon, losing in the first 
round to Todd Witsken, of fiw 
United States. Stephen Shaw 
and Stuart Bale, ranked third 
and fourth in Britain, were 
also first-round losers, so the 
Australians are not Hkdy to be 
shaking in their shoes whom- 
ever they meet in the Davis 
Cop. 

But Hutchins is weD aware 
that Lloyd is his key player. 
As Hutchins says: “I would 
like to think that when John 
cools down and looks at the 
nutter dinkaUy he is jnst as 
likely to go ont, even alter this 
bad result 


had only been „ 

idea) and Miss Inoue sprained 
an ankle. She finished the 
match, but it became a 
formality. 

Kate Gompert could not 
last the course with the eighth 
seed, Manuela Maleeva. Miss 
Gompert began the match 
with most of her left thigh 
encased in Mack strapping. 
Eventually she had to retire. It 
was something to do with that 
group of musdes known as the 
quadriceps, explained the 
trainer, Donna Pallulat — a 
good advertisement for her 
trade in that she had been 
dashing about between courts 
seven and 14 but was not even 
breathing heavily. Most of us, 
of course, get through life 
without suspecting that we 
own quadriceps. 

Fragility of a different kind 
afflicted that delightful hero- 
ine of 1984, Carina Karisson, 
who took the first set from 
Rafiaella Reggi but won only 
one more game. Miss 
Karisson has no confidence 
these days. She was in no 
mood to appreciate the set- 
ting; a tree-dad hillside 
topped by a church spire, the 
adjacent creeper-covered wa- 
ter tower, and the golden 
sunshine of a lovely afternoon 
that brought to mind Shelley’s 
lines about white, fleecy 
clouds wandering in thick 
flocks along the mountains, 
shepherded by a slow, unwill- 
ing wind. 

It must be added, though, 
that Wimbledon was too 
crowded — that too many of 
the multitude were not watch- 
ing tennis because they could 
not get to it prefer to populate 
the food village, the picnic 
lawns, or the “troglodyte 
tunnel” between courts two 
and three. It is possible to 
spend all day at Wimbledon 
without seeing any tennis.

in recent years interest in 
the. women’s singles at Wim- 
bledon has centred not so 
much on who might win the 
title as who might emerge 
when the Navratflova/Uoyd 
domination is finally over. 

Yesterday Gabrida Sabatt- 
ni, aged 16, of Agentina, made 
out her case — though, it was 
not altogether convincing — 
for inclusion in the ranks of 
those most likely to. In beating 
Christine Jolissrint, of Swit- 
zerland, 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 on the 
centre court yesterday the 
.No. 10 seed showed what a 
fluent player she can he and 
yet how easily this approach 
can slip into something bor- 
dering on the lethargic 

Miss Sabatini looked as if 
she would enjoy an untrou- 
bled passage when Miss 
Jolissaint double-faulted twice 
in succession to yield the first 
set 6-2. Miss Sabatini had 
been at her supple best, find- 
ing clever angles of approach 
and concluding rallies, partic- 
ularly on the volley, with a 
reassuring firmness. 

The second set saw a trans- 
formation, however, as Miss 
Jolissaint began to turn in a 
solid performance in every 
sense.

opponent who, while a de- 
lightful stylist, is something of 
a lightweight. 

Miss Sabatini, who. daring 
the first set. had looked sur- 
prisingly at ease at the net, was 
now pinned to the back of the- 
court from where she had 
difficulty finding a way past 
Miss Jolissaint. When tire did 
come in. Miss Jolissaint’s 
lobbing exposed Miss Sab- 
atinf s quite severe weakness

Miss Sabatini pulled herself 
together for the third set, 
rediscovering her best shot, a 
backhand sendee return hit 
with a lazy swing of the racket 
but which invariably sent the 
ball singing over the net- It 
helped her to secure two 
breaks of service to lead 5-2, 
but she squandered a service 
game of her own before taking 
the set 6-4. 

Miss Sabatini thus rein-

New threat 
to crippled 
catamaran 


From Bxny PicktbaU 
Newport, Rhode Island 


Robin Knox-Johnston and 
his Fiench crewman, Bernard 
Galiay, sailing their crippled 
catamaran, British Airways L 
strutted yesterday to main- 
tain fourth place in the closing 
stages of the Carlsberg transat- 
lantic race. They are fighting a 
late challenge from Olivier 
Dardell and Richard le Joly’s 
French catamaran, AIcateL 

British Airways, which has 
suffered damage to its centre 
boards and seagull striker, 
which supports the 60 ft 
catamaran's forward beam 
during the 3,000 mile crossing, 
was left totally becalmed close 
to Nantucket Island cm Tues- 
day night. 

AIcateL which was thought 
to be 30 miles behind Knox- 
John stem’s craft earlier this 
week, has enjoyed much fairer 
winds further to the south and 
yesterday looked set to 
squeeze ahead of the luckless 
British sailor. 

Among others expected to 
finish last night was Tuna 
Marine Voortrekker, skip- 
pered by South African, John 
Martin. He is fighting to get 
the first monohull home and 
was reported to be 40 miles 
from Nantucket at noon 
yesterday.

COMMONWEALTH GAMES 


Welsh selectors may think again 


The Welsh Commonwealth 
Games selectors may be forced 
to reconsider their original 
choice of 103 competitors for 
Edinburgh after coming under 
increasing fire from 
and athletics officials, who feel 
their sports have been given a 
raw deal. 

Only four boxers have bees 
named for the trip despite the 
good record of Welsh boxers 
at previous Games, and the 


Welsh Amateur 
dation are upset that mere is 
no room in the team for Welsh 
featherweight champion, Tony 

Khpn- 

Among foe athletes left oat 
is javelin thrower, lun 
Newenfam of Cardiff, despite 
achieving qualifying standards 
during the recent Welsh cham- 
pionships. Middle-distance 
runners, Neil HorsfieU and 
Paul Williams, were also ex- 


pected to make the team. 

The Welsh ABA and Ama- 
teur Athletics Association 
have re-submitted farther 
names for consideration. 

The selection panel have 
refused to comment on the 
issue but may make a number 
of additions to the party as 
they did four years ago when a 
boxer; a swimmer and a 
shooter' were included 'in the 
team tor Brisbane. 


SPORT )N BRIEF 


Calling 

Cowley 


Annette Cowley, the South 
African-born swimmer, was 
selected yesterday to represent 
England at the forthcoming 
Commonwealth Games in Ed- 
inburgh. having earlier bran 
omitted from the squad be- 
cause of doubts about her 
eligibility. The 19-year-old 
Wigan Wasp, who has an 
English mother, won an ap- 
peal last week and the selec- 
tors have now re-selected their 
team, choosing Cowley for the 
100 and 200 metres freestyle 
events. 

In the 100 metres, Cowley 
replaces Debbie Gone, of 
Fleetwood, while in the 200 
metres she has been given 
preference over Karen Melkw, 
of Norwich Penguins. Melior 
is also selected for the 400 and 
800 metres freestyle, with 
Gore competing in the sprint 
relay.

Argentina are planning to 
dominate the Junior Wimble- 
don boys’ singles next-week. 
The South Americans occupy 
the top two seeding positions 
with Javier Frana at No. 1 and 
Gulfermo Perez Roldanat No.
